No less  than 26 corpses were found under  the shop occupied by the cobbler  and jo "others were unearthed from  a yard in the rear of- his shop. All  the victims were women. The  murderer", \vho has .already been  tried; convicted and-sentenced,' will  be crucified ou Thursday next."

L  '  A Honolulu despatch says the  calamity at San Francisco, 011 which  city Honolulu has always depended  for her supplies, is liable to work a,  great hardship in the latter city and -  actual suffering is feared.

Everybody  is aroused 'as the new constitution  gives no power at all to the people,  but. gives .the.Czar fuILcontroi.'of  parliament.

According   to   (he    Engineering  Journal   of   Canada  the .Dominion  has   toda}' the biggest railway mileage compared to population  of any  country iu   the   world.    There is al  present constructed and iu operation  a   mile   of   railway lo two hundred  1 and ninety inhabitants.   The United  States,- with all its progress in   railway building,   has  but one mile of  railway to 3S7 people;  France,   one  mile to 1,317 people; Germany, one  mile to 1,8:S people; Great Britain,  one mile to 1,850 people,   and  Russia, one mile to 3,400 people.    The  first   railway built  in Canada,  the  Journal says, was the .St. Lawrence  &   Champlain;   the   rails   were  of  wood,    with   spiked strips of iron,  and   it   was   opened  iu   1836.    In  1S61   Canada   had i.Soo   miles   of  railway, carrying 1,825,000 passengers and 1,450,446 tons  of   freight  and   earning an  aggregate   of $6,-  '722,660  ou a paid   up   capital   of  $38,278,986.    On   June   30,   1905,  there   was  20,601 miles of railway  in Canada, including double  trackage,    being   an  increase of nearly  1,000  miles  over   1904.    For   the  year 1904-5 Canadian railways carried 25,788,723 passengers, 50,893,-  957 tons of freight, and   earned   in  gross   ^106,467,199   on   a paid up  capital of $1,248,666,414.    In   less  than twenty-one years the  mileage  increased 1.150 per cent; passenger  traffic   1.150   per cent., and freight  3.400 per cent.  The persistency with which some  people wilh records can but into society is only exceeded by Ihe warh'i-  ness of the welcome extended them  by alleged respectability.

His  susceptibility to comedy is strong,  but not so strong as the impression  produced on his attention and imagination by the more serious things  of life. The plays that last are the  plays wliich have fate in them���  that portray the elemental passions.  How true this is best known by the  playgoers of mature years who can  recall ' a thousand and one merely  amusing plays the character of  which have strutted their little hour  aud then dropped out of sight.  These plays lack the lasting quality  of deeper sentiment. To students  of the older dramatists this is still  more apparent. The old play  which deals with the deeper emotions of our common nature is revived today with all its strength unimpaired��� passion and human feeling were then the same as now.  Some of ihe old comedies survive  but have not the hold of the plays  of. the more serious kind. From  Shakespeare's earliest drama to the  last product of the serious play-:  wright, the play grounded in human,  emotion   and  fate, which rightly or  The British Knipire seems to ' be  gathering strength as the years roll  by il increase in area and population  indicates advancement.
