Princess Alice Actual Hostilllie  With Royal Party  SEAS ALL GUARDED  Recently Negotiated Franco-Russian  Agreement Will Be Brought Into  Practical Operation.  FRANCE TO CONTROL  THE MEDITERRANEAN  England Left to Defend the North Sea  While Russia Will Guard the Baltic  The recentJ^negbtiated Franco-  Russian naval convention and the  older Anglo-French convention.  relating to the Mediterranean sea  board will be brought into practical operation within a few days,  when the french fleet, which  heretofore has had its headquarters at Brest, will be permanently, transferred to ToulonU.:  This naval move will "give  , France complete control in the  Mediterranean over any.possible  combination of the triple alliance;  and will leave to England the defence, of the North Sea, while  Russia guards the Baltic Sea.  Experts point out that with the  Russian fleet in the Baltic, the  strength of the British fleet will  be materially increased against  any contemplated German attack,  while the English Channel is considered sufficiently defended by  the numerous fleets of destroyers  and- submarines stationed on both  the English and French coasts.  FROM VANCOUVER  TO FORT GEORGE  On, Board  Leaves Vancouver  Tonight For  Prince Rupert  The Princess Alice, which will  take the Duke and Duchess of  Connaught and Party to Prince  Rnpert, will leave Vancouver at  11 o'clock and will arrive at  Prince Rupert the following Monday. She will lie there till  Wednesday, while the party is  feted by the citizens of the northern town. On Wednesday night  at 11 o'clock their Royal Highnesses will leave on the Alice for  I^anaimo, at which port they  will arrive on Friday morning.  ,The, steamer will leave the coal  city shortly after noon and be at  the, C. P. R. docks at 'Victoria  about 5 o'clock. After the func-  tions to be held there are concluded the Princess Alice will"  convey the party across to Vancouver.  Capt. Locke, the veteran coasting captain, who is now commanding the Alice on the night  run from Vancouver, will take  the steamer north.

Desperate fighting, marked by many casualties On both sides, is  in progress today along the Turko-Bulgarian frontier, according to  despatches received here from Constantinople and Sofia.  The trouble started when a force of Bulgarians fired on Turkish  soldiers patrolling the border.' The Turks returned the fire, five  Bulgarians being killed in the exchange. The Bulgarians retreated  and, securing reinforcements, returned to the attack. The Turkish  commander armed peasants and added them to his force.  The battle, which raged all day yesterday, was renewed at dawn  today.  BULGARIAN'S   ULTIMATUM  "Grant self-government to Macedonia or fight," is the ultimatum  of Bulgaria to Turkey, according to a special despatch.  As a result of the clash between Bulgarian and Turkish troops  along the frontier, it is believed here, thai*, war between the two  countries is inevitable.  TURKEY'S   DEFIANCE  The war office answered today Bulgaria's ultimatum to'give self-  government to Macedonia or fight by rushing troops to the frontier.  Cabinet officers characterized Bulgaria's attitude in Macedonia as  "pernicious interference with Turkey's internal affairs.  the outset by saying that in point GOVERNMENT AGENCY  It Goes to Foley, Welch & Stewart,  and Amounts to Over Sixteen  Millions.  Foley, Welch & Stewart, the  Spokane, Vancouver, B. C., and  St. Paul contractors, have been  awarded a $16,500;000 railroad  contract by the Grand Trunk  Pacific Railway.  The plans call for building from ,  Vancouver,  B. C., to the Grand  Trunk Pacific at Fort George, a  distance of 348 miles.     This  is|  one of the largest-individual rail-!  road contracts ever awarded in!  the West, and exceeds anysimi-i  lar contract in recent years.

Not an American aeroplane rose from the ground, in  defence of the cup won by tnis  country from England last year.

St. George Hamersley,  member of the British House of  Commons' for the Woodstock  division of Oxford, takes a very  pessimistic view, indeed, of Ireland's immediate future. Mr.  Hamersley believes that there  is serious trouble ahead whether  the bill proposing-to- grant home  rule passes or not. If it does  pass, Ulster, he says, will fight,  and if it does not pass' an outbreak will occur in the - south of  the island which will bring about  a condition of anarchy. If there  is to be rebellion, no matter what  the government does, there is  certainly need of a considerable  military force being kept in readiness for an emergency call.  Mr. Hamersley, perhaps, ,is unduly alarmed. Eie has apparently been listening; to speeches by  Mr. Bonar Law and Sir Edward  Carson, with whose general  political views; he is in agreement, and ho has allowed himself to be too strongly influenced  by their extreme opinions on Irish  matters. That this is so would  appear from his expressed conviction that if it is the Ulsterites  who-are to assume the role of  rebels, the soldiers sent to suppress them will refuse to do so.  We can hardly be expected to  credit the assertion that the  British soldier will not obey orders, and if c ommanded to attack  those in arm s against the Crown  and Const?/ution will fail in his  duty.
