London,    2nd;���In  introducing  the Naval Estimates in   the  House  of Commons today, Ernest G., Pretty-man, Sc-cretary'to the Admirality  justified the increase in ihe estimates on the ground that the two powers' standard must  be  maintained.  The Russian battleship programme  and that of other naval powers had  to    be    consideied.     Russia   and  France together had built, or  were  building, 64 battleships and France  and Germany combined were building,   or  had  built  6i   battleships,  while the British total was  63  battleship-;.    In considering the  cruiser    programme,   the  govarnment  was not governed by this standard,  but by the immense  preponderance  of   British    sea-borne   commerce.  While regretting the inct casing expenditure, the Admiralty remarked  it  as  being  insurance.    Secretary  Prettyman    concluded  by  saying:  "The naval policy of Great Britain  waj  purely  defensive.    Recent  e*  vents in the Far East 's-howed   the  necessity for preparedness to strike  the fit st blow aud so obtain  incalculable advantage.

Aboi:t 3.45 on Satur"da>;.'morniii��  off the month of t'he Columbia River, n fire started irr the after saloon.  The cause is unknown. The lire  gained a rapid headway, and scon  enveloped the whole ship. The  heavy seas meant death to'any persons sent off iu the boats. Tlie  flames became more threatening until it seemed a choice of death from  drowning or fire. Capt. ^Cousins  ordeiecl the life-boats 'launched.  They were maimed and women and  children lowertd into them;. They  were hardly cast loose than two of  them were capsized. The passengers and crew who remained on  board continued to fight the flames  with increasing success until at 7.40  a.m. the blaze ,was under control.  When it was seen that danger from  fire was passed, tlie Captain re-called the boats. The Queen was then  headed South and about nine o'clock  she sighted the Steamer "Santa  Monica" which was signalled and  asked to stand by until the repairs  weie made. The Queen continued  to the mouth of the Columbia, only to find the bar too rough. She  was then pointed to Pugel Sound  but bad fortune still pursued her.  When she rounded Cape Flattery a  terrific electrical storm was encountered and the gale was weathered  with diffculty. The steamer reached here without further mishap',  and she proceeded to Seattle where  she arrived about nightfall.  ��0��00->��:-��C'4>0'>C^Q^O^O��C><(>0-tiO?--->C'-��<>>C'��0<��0-Kt'>'>$000^0-��00��<:t��-.  i THE'   KOOTKNAV   HOTEL   I  '.' -,. .

Mr.   Chamberlain's   Address   at   the  , First Meeting.  ; London, Jan. 16.���Mr. Joseph  ���Chamberlain presided at the lirst meeting of the tariff commission, 'which as-.  eembled here yesterday. ��� Mr. Chamberlain in a , speech drew a parallel from what the United States and  ���Germany had accomplished.under projective tariffs, and denied that any tariff  icould be framed here which, as, its opponents alleged, would make the .rich  (richer and the poor poorer. The United States under protection had reached  .prosperity unequalled in thc world. In  ,no other country was wealth so evenly  |distributed, while there was no country  :��n thc. world where such a large, proportion of tlie population was on the  Verge of hunger and distress as in  Great Britain. Mr. Chamberlain said  ,the object of the commission was not  .'to formulate tariff laws, but-to iny��s-  " tigalc and inquire with open mind.  ;A11 that had thus far been decided was  ..that the policy adopted sc- many years  .ago required reform.  i   At the conclusion of Mr.  Chamber-.  . Iain's speech the commission discusr d  a general method of procedure.' On  ,Mr. Chamberlain's motion. Mr. Pear-  'son was .unanimously elected Vice-  'Chairman. A general purpose commit-  .tee was then - adopted. It includes  among its members Charles Booth, Sir  iVinccnt Caillard, Frederick L. Harris,  'M.P., Sir Alexander' Henderson, Sir  Robert Herbert, Sir Alfred Jones and  IrVIfred Mosclcy, the two last named be-  ,ing respectively Chairman and Vice-  chairman   of   thc   committee.  Future meetings of thc committee  'will be held on Wednesday and Thursday of each week.  . FRANCE'S THREAT TO POPE.  I  Must Approve of the Appointment of  .   Archbishops.  Home, Jan. 16.���Thc French Government bias presented the Vatican with  a note in the nature of an ultimatum  regarding the appointment of Bishops  to five vacant French Sees, substantially saying that cither thc  iPope must approve thc selections of the French Government or they will be announced officially without thc approbation of the  'Holy Sec. In addition, the Papal  Nuncio will be asked to leave Tans,  and the clergy will be forbidden to  collect Peters' pence in the churches,  :but thc concordat will not be denounced. Thc rumor that the Pope had decided tc approve line appointments is  incorrect. Thc Vatican hopes to be  able to continue the negotiations.  1   THE NOORDLAND ARRIVES.

Victoria, B.C., Jan. 16.���-Application was made at the Coroner's  inquiry into the Clallam disaster  for warrants for ' thc arrest of  Captain Roberts and others' held responsible for the wreck, on charges  of manslaughter. Mr. C. H. Lugrrn,  representing (he Dominion, Government, said that sufficient evidence had  been secured to show criminal negligence, and he would apply to thc  Provincial Government, on behalf of  the Dominion Government, seeking  the arrest of thc captain and any  others  held  to be   responsible.  Evidence was given this morning  by Richard Griffith, one oi the crew  of the Clallam, that one oi the seamen took thc ensign from its box  and was 'hauling it to half-mast, 'upside down, when Capt. Roberts ordered him to take it down and put  it up right side up, as if no ling was  the matter. .About that time a steamer, which witness took to be a collier, passed about three miles away.  Captain Roberts., saw that he was  wrong, and about ten minutes later  allowed thc sailor to put up thc flag  in a reversed position. Griffiths gave  a clear statement of the happenings  in connection ' with the disaster. He  said1 Captain Roberts was' much excited, and told of a conversation when  the boats were being lowered, .when  Captain Roberts had told . witness that  he (witness) would be drown J. Witness replied that if he was he would  not be the only one. Griffiths had  no hope that the boats would live  -and advised people not to gt> into  them. He said no steps we.c taken  to; rescue those in the water after  the , first ,boat capsized, though they  were alongside 'the - steamer. There rockets or blue fires or other-  signals on board, so far as he knew.  The rudder was known not to be in  good condition, and thc steamer would  not steer well. Griffiths thought of  cutting the'line when the tug Holy-  oke was towing, as the steamer was  foundering, but not being ordered to  do so, and as he had'been told that'  the captain -could shoot any one not  obeying orders in such a .time,, he  did not. He told of clambering over  the steamer's side when she turned  over at the last minute. Griffiths  was the last living man on the boat.  When the water^came up on him as  he clung on the steamer's side, he  climbed up the stays to-the masthead  and from there watched all the 'men  on the side washed off. He saw the  whole starboard side break 'away and  expose the ribs and knees. Then the  stay carried ,away and he '��� went into  the sea. - He was picked up, after  floating-on a < pilot house, by thc tug  Holyoke. The passengers and crew  had all asked thc captain and mate to  put them on the Holyoke when the  tug first came.  ���BIO-FIRE IH CALGARY.  o*��~  Another Session of  Parliament.

Mr. R. .Rclton',  and it was accepted.- Mr. Rclton-is in  Montreal, and he will shortly appoint  a successor to Mr. Heaton. Thc resignation of the General Manager -was thc  outcome of a difference of opinion regarding certain investments, and an  assignment of Mr. Beaton's property  to thc company was made at the same  time, to an extent covering the company's losses. Mr. Heaton invested  the Guardian's funds heavily, but. he  claims, in good faith, in Canadian and  American securities, in the shrinkage  of which the company lost considerable sums. Mr. Heaton says he  made these investments in his capacity  as Manager, believing theni for the  best interests of thc company. His  term of office as General Manager began eight years ago.

I have had some  communication by cable with Japan  regarding thc matter, and have been  informed that, owing to the High  prices here, orders have been placed  for a large amount of Pacific coast  ���.Wheat,'which is now going^forward,  prices there being cheaper.

Duke Philip of Orleans Wants Disao-  1 lu'don of His Marriage.  Vienna, Jan. 16.���Thc Allegcmcihc  Zcitung says that Duke Philip of Orleans is seeking a divorce, and that  he has petitioned thc Curia for a dispensation to enable him to marry thc  daughter of a" great Austrian noble.  Thc paper asserts that thc Duke consulted the leading members of thc  royalist party last summer and - informed them of his- intentions, giving  as a reason'that his present union  was childless and that he desired to  continue the royal line. The Royalists endeavored to dissuade him  from taking such action, and pointed out_ to him thu liis d -orce and  remarriage would scandalize Catholic circles in France, the 'chief supporters of thc Royalist cause. Jt  at first appeared- that thc Duke acquiesced in the wishes of his followers, but he now renews his request  to the Curia, urging ihc nullification  of his marriage on the ground uiat  he was forced into thc union.-. The  lady whom the Duke desired to  marry is said to be Ihc Princess Clementine, daughter of Pauline, Princess dc Mctlernich-Snndor: The report has caused a sensation in Court  circles, and the cotine , attributed to  the Duke is severely condemned.

But life -has a very kaleidoscopic range  of significance. To some it has a narrow meaning-, to others a large one,  fflhe life of the savage is dull and re-  (facicted as compared with the life of  tlie civilized man, with its expanded and  brigjhtened aspects.' ���  To the universal human yearning for  a d.ecper, larger life Christianity offers  a Unique response. To the,cry of the  ���ouf for life it answers. "Life 1" St.  'JolSu tells us :���','In Him was life, and  ��� tttat life was thc light of men." And  this feature 'differentiates it from all  Other religions.  Why did thc Egyptians embalm their  dead? In a vain attempt to,defeat thc  inevitable corrosion of time. Yet  **at a mockery of existence these  ���epulehrcd,   mummified   forms I-  The  _ pious Hindoo indulge* as liis highest  future hope the absorption at death  fcito the nirvana of an" impersonal,  dreamless sleep. And the noble spirits  ���f the Greeks and Romans, waiuW-  mg* disembodied by. the Styx,-sighing  <    lor the earthly state they had lost, had  ���ut a fleeting -shadow of life.  How refreshing, then, like a rcnew-  ��� tag breath over the dry bones of the  world of death, these great words c-f  the Son-of Man :���."I am come that  they  might have "life,   and   that  they  ��� Si8**.  llave   il     more   abundantly."  ��� ii!?1 -s' .reIlS>on is a message, of life.  Sims �� its prime feature, its supreme  , purpose. It fulfils this mission in two  .ways :���  First, by awakening title spiritual life.  >lne life of man is threefold���animal,-  Intellectual, spiritual. The spiritual  u that in which exists the divine image.  It is far the noblest fcrm of life. It  w the life of fellowship with God, of  discernment of the spiritual and eternal," of heavenly aims and aspirations,  licet this uppermost round of life is  just that into wHich men and women  ��� ao not enter until awakened and lifted  up to it by religion. And so marvellous is the change of experience it  ���rings that it can only be denoted by "a  ���ew birth," a being "born again,"   an  ��� ��� ���petung of the soul's vision to a higher  realm of being.  And the second way in .which religion is a message of life is by its revelations cf immortality. This' "new.  creature" is superior to death. - The  Wtal principle, inbreathed by title Spirit  ���f God, can never die. Through the  shock of death it shall be preserved,  and when time shall be no more, and  . when at the archangel's trump creation sHall be uncreated,.undimmed will  it shine on in the firmament of eter-  tuty.  We see here, then, the great mistake  cf many conceptions about religion.  One of tlie most current of these is  that it fetters, narrows, circumscribes  lafe.- People shrink back,from religion,  fearing that it will largelyi make then-  part with life, take its vim, its range,  its felicity from it; whtarcas precisely  the reverse is true. Christ proclaimed  no fettered, gloomy, ascetic Gospel.  But His message was one of gcod  tidings, of freedom, of uplifting. He  not only-called to'Jife, but to larger  ��fe, to higher life, to more ��� exalted  raptures.    Religion denies   no rightful  Jleasure, it restricts no natural faculty.  t does net   preach    abstinence,    but  temperance.' It only adds to thc animal  ' and intellectual sense of being the spiritual, the crown and flower of life.  A notable illustration of this Morley  gives in-His "Life of Gladstone." "His  ., religious faith inspired him to high  thcught and noble action and gave new  ���trcngth and beauty to his fine nature.  (There was in the greatest English  scientists of the last century something  lacking, that left fhlem with a touch of  meanness, narrowness and hardness  and kept them to a lower range of manhood than that of Gladstone."    '  Religion, then, is a message of life,  and cf larger life. Those who hold  back from it are only debarring themselves from the noblest actions, thc  finest experiences and the rarest joys.  'At tide death of such a person," no matter what n--y have been his wealth and  mental culture, we may truly ,- say. :���  "He has never lived ; he has never beheld thc true secret of life." V Religion  but expands thc nature of man, broadens the diameter and enlarge^.the horizon of life. It quickens tlta spiritual,  it gives true freedom, it, fosters love  and good-will, it intensifies joy, and  over the mound of death it rears the  rainbow of an immortal hope/ ...,.:  We only then sound the vast range  of life and taste the rarest essence of  'being when we develop and' give scope  to our religious nature. This is that  message of a larger, fuller, more bliss  On the face of it, the answer fa obvi-  ��ua. A woman likes any kind of man  better than "no man at all.

Woman, likes fl  man who i9 anything rather than a duplicate of herself.

Most women  ���eem actually "to prefer that a man  should be'positively helpless when within  the walls of his own home, but probably  this is because they wish him to realize  fcia utter dependence upon them, nnd his  incapacity 'to grapple with domestic  ���rohdema of any and every .kind during  their absence. -  It is the modern human- fashion, to  consider that women are -not Tided by  pulsion.

The Southern girl was  having fresh leaves sent to her every day,  in the letters from home, and that is the  way she managed to keep up her healthful glow.
