WKARP   BUDGET.  Wednesday, Jan. 4th���������-It was an unusual sight���������the snow everywhere, covering timber, pralysing business, with here  and there a path trodden through it, and  in certain places, like the platform, contemptuously thrown aside with the  shovel. And yet it, was reported by the  officers of the City of Nanaimo, which  came in a little late���������shortly after 3  o'clock���������that there was more snow in  Nanaimo and still more in Victoria. At  a the latter place they were enjoying a  sleigh carnival, with outfits at $15 a day.  A mantle- of snow covered Denman  and Hornby Islands; and here in Union  Biy a merchant told me tbe snow was  18 inches, deep.    And   the cold!    They  ���������i  were not more prepared for it here more'  than in Cumberland and Union. , The  icy grip fastened on Ine pipes at the  washer and lo I there' was trouble.  Wherever there Were water pipes the  same fierce grip crushed them. And we  never think about such things, until too  late, and then ,we can't .help thinking  about them. Alas ! our pocket books are  vulnerable and have to pay the penalty.  The Maud was1 smuglirig up against  the south side of the big wharf as if cold.  This being the warmer side is given to  the'little craft���������the-baby boats. When  they get to be b\g boats, they lake' the  north side, where the Warrimoo' was  being loaded preparatory to her voyage  to Austialia. And that was all tbe boats'  I_saw here, ban ing the Cits of Nanaimo,  of course, except the scow which rested  upon limbers on ' the beach, shivering  under its blanker of'snow. ���������   -  It was amusing to watch thc_Chinamen  handling the coke. It stuck���������frozen  together���������and the prnor,fellows would tug  ��������� at it while.tlie grim'frost would hold il  , tighi-'"Too ���������jtickey" they said. And it  did slick f.isL  The men with lean s were leveling off  the black waste under the b.g wharf.  The mules or horses would go amazingly  near the sleep sides and then, in panto-  mine, declare they wouldn't go another  step. In this resolution the drivers evidently concurred for they pullt-d back on  the handles of the scrapers, and said  something in horse language which was  evidenily understood by the beasts, but  for which we are not sufficiently learned  in the lingo to give it in dialect. It is  evident that when squaired off this  material will be made the base for supporting timbers for the railed bed above;  in other words the wharf is in process of  being renewed.  There ware only about two dozen coke  ovens fiied up, the balance taking a  winter n-ip. I was not informed, when  they would awake but probably when  needed.  ���������same purpose upon the lakes aud rivers in  'oradjacent to the territory served hy. tho  (���������-aid railway ; to erect aud rnane^s tlectri-  cal works for the use and transmission !6f e 1 e c 11- i c a 1 bower, aud  acquire ,, and make use of natural  -aud other water powers for that purpose ; to maintain stores aad trading pos**3 ;  and to carry on a milling and smelling business, including* the ei'euti������;u ,, of saw-mills  and smelters ; also to enter into traffic aud  other arrangements with other railway and  transport ttion companies : to issue prefev-  ence'stock and bonds/ ar.d wich all such  other powers, rights and privileges as may  be necessary for the purposes of the undertaking. ��������� '  K1NGSMILL, SAUNDEKS & TORR&NCE  Solicitous ron the Applicants.

WILLIAMS.  The Morning Chronicle, Halifax, N.S., l  publishes   a  very  inlen.'-.luig    interview  w.tt-i  A.   D.   Williams   formerly1 of this  place.    It mimducc--. the  matter  by   tbe  statement lhat Mr. Williams   is a native  of Oolclenville,   Guysburo    county,   who  ,xfu.i- being educated al Picton   academy,  left Nova Scotia for the west some  eight  or ten years ago.    Brought   up in   one of  the richest gold  centres of Nova   Scoiia  he naturally-became interested in mining  operations in the west   and'visued  many  of the big camps of that great country."  After describing   ihe routes to the Klondike, it then   continues, "When Mr. Will-  in ms'party  arrived at   Dawson   City ail*  claims   on the   Eidorado   and   Bonanzo  Creek had been   located  and   taken   up,  iv.u'many of the benches were  open and  had   not   been   prospected.    It   was   not  then known whether they contained gold  or not, but as   soon as a probpecting hole  was put down it showed' as much gold in  lhe benches   a.-; in   lhe  creeks.     He,   his  father,'brother,  and .cousin*" made  locations on Hunker Creek where  they have  an mteres,   in seven   claims,   on   which  ti.'.y are now mining.    They   rocked out  during the   summer   $50.00 a day.    This  was .panned out jn a very  crude  manner  by a rocking cradle,   but the  claims   are  now being worked by John Williams  on  a larger scale."  "No man," Mr. Williams  says,  "can  have  an idea  of what gold  there is in Bonanza,   Eldorado,   or Hunker Creek until he sees it,  but  there  all  the ground is now taken up."

Fernandina, which has been selected for
the new army camp, is an old Florida seaport 38 miles northeast of Jacksonville.
The principal points of advantage which
Fernandina has over Key West, Tampa
and other Florida ports, from a military
view, arc the pure and abundant water,
the deep water of the harbor,' furnishing
good facilities for loading troops; tho oaso
of access of the camp site for loading and
embarking troops, tho magnificent sea
bathing for the men, tire cool breezes from
the ocean and the excellent drainage facilities. All these combine to make it one of
the best points for a largo camp in tho
south. '
The land is furnished free, and the water is served to the camps at no costto the
government or men. Both these considerations, so utterly different from the conditions prevailing at Tampa; -somowhat
astonished the officers sent to inspect tho
sites offered.,
The city, is located on a flno landlockod
bay, the' St. Mary's river, a large fresh
water stream emptying into its upper ond.
The bay^is possibly four or five miles long
by a milo or two miles wide. It has deep
water along the water front and in the'
parts adjacent, so that ample room could
be had for a fleet of 20 or more large transports at a time. On the bar at present
thero is 21 feet at high tide. The operations now going on at tho south jetties,
according to Colonel Benyaurd, United
States officer in charge of the coastwise
work, is likely to give 23 feet'soon. This
will givo ample room oh the bar for ��� the
largest-transports to go out fully laden. ���
The dockage facilities are. excellent.
For years past the phosphate and lumber
interests havo been increasing, and the
piers have been arranged and rebuilt with
a view to'the quick loading of a number
of vessels at once. Several transports can
lie alongside the wharfs at a time and the
supplies and troops be put on board without loss of time,and with ease.
The town lies, on rolling land and is
about two miles from,the seacoast. The
land between the town and coast is high
rolling pine land, wooded with giant
dwarf and water oaks. Tho soil is hard,
there being a noticeable absence of the
shifting sand found at the other camps.
Northeast of th&city and beginning near
old Fort Clinch there is a tract of 120
acres that has been selected as the, camp
site. It is a beautiful location. The land
is high, some distance above the sea level,
and it can be easily drained. Tlie ti'ces
give abundant shade, while not too'thick
to prevent tho free passage of the winds to
cool the air among the tents. To ono side
there is a large tract free of underbrush or
trees which can be used for drilling large
bodies of troops. At low tide the sand
beach, hard and dry, affords a magnificent
-^rger cities. It will tend to make the
camps much easier.to control and aid in
establishing a better morale for the soldiers. >

The water supply is abundant, and from:
analysis it has been found to bewholesome
and good. It is secured from several artesian wells, tho same as at Jacksonville,
good water being found at a depth of 800
to 1,200 feet. The water is being piped to
the camp site now. Eight inch mains are
used to carry the water to the camp site
and 6 inch pipes to carry it through the
company streets, giving each company as
many plugs or hydrants as may be needed.
This will prove of great advantage to the
troops, giving them an ample supply of
water at their tent doors. The tents will
be from a quarter to half a mile from the
shore of the bay.
There are ample facilities for securing
good and large warehouses for storehouses
for tho commissary and quartermaster's

Devoted Wife Clinfjs to Her Criminal Husband.
"It's the old story of woman's devotion
,to the man of her choice, no mu&wir what
he does. She's like ivy���tho greater tho
ruin tho closer she clings." This was tlio
comment of a languid New York clubman
on hearing the story of William Rilcy
Foster, his wifo and little daughter. Foster, now for the second time a fugitive
from justice, is managing to keep beyond
tho reach of law. His wifo and child are
living at,a quiet Now York hotel waiting
to hear from him. When sho does learn
where her husband is, she will ondeavor
to reach him, but should she succeed thero
is every probability that the polico will by
following her once moi'e nab their num.
Foster is the son of a man, who was
formerly in good circumstances.    Ho was
educated at Columbia university and soon
afterward came to bo recognized  as a talented lawyer.  The trustees of the Produco
Exchango  gratuity fund  selected  him as
their counsel, and such satisfaction did ho
give that  ere long ho was made sole custodian of tho fund.    His salary was $10,-
000 a year, but he  lived at a rate necessitating ten times that amount.    This went
on  until  1888, when,  having embezzled,
$193,000  of the  funds   intrusted  to  his'
0care. he fled.    Then for the first time tho
trustccsheard of Luola Beloto.     When almost a child, she had been inveigled into
a resort which Foster used' to visit.    Immediately on  her arrival  tho lawyer saw
her and, moved by her beauty and simple
innocence," determined to save her. At that
time she did not know tho fato from which
the kindly mannered stranger had rescued
her..   Sho knows  now.    Foster  installed
the  beautiful  young girl  in  a villa  on
Long Island.  Thero she was carefully educated, it beingunderstood among people
in the vicinity that sho was Foster's nicco.
Asa  matter of  fact she  had become his
idol, and ho was only waiting for tho completion of  her education  to mako  her his
wife.    The girl  was   equally  infatuated
with him, and when tho crash came and
Foster disappeared sho had no thought of
deserting him.  Polico and detectives vainly tried to get from her information which
��� would lead   to  his   arrest.    Finally *- sho
slipped away and  took ship for  Lisbon,
Portugal, where Foster was already located.    There they wero married and lived
for years.    Meanwhile Foster's father had
paid $80,000 of'his son's stealings, but boforo ho could pay tho rest ho died, leaving
property   worth   about   ��200,000.     This
estate was settled up and Foster got the
money, but in  some way tho  polico got a
clew and started after their man.
By this time Foster was the father of a
girl baby. Getting a hint of tho pursuit,
he, with his wife and child, roamed from
place to placo in Europe," but was finally
caught in France. After, a long loj-cal
fight ho was brought to this country, tho
woman and the littlo ono following on tho
next steamer. In New York ho secured
bail in $20,000, Samuel W. Millbank pledging his ��50,000 residence for tho embezzler's appearance. This was early in tho
present year. For four months ho and
his family lived quietly at a hotel, but on
tho day when the case was called Foster
had once moro fled. A day or two later
Millbank paid the ��20,000 bail, and about
tho same timo word came that tho fugitive was in Paris. Mrs. Foster declares
that her husband has committed suicide

"Every self .respecting man and woman
accustomed to tho conventionalities of society wants at all times to be neatly dressed, but it is universally understood that
the exigencies of travel do not permit the
variety and elegance of costume customary and practicable at home. Indeed good
taste does not justify the display of elaborate gowns and millinery on steamers, in
cars and at the tables of hotels frequented
by transient guests. The plainest garb
therefore is permissible in traveling, and
as a European tour very seldom takes one
where a stylish appearance is essential it
is both needless and foolish to cumber
oneself with a variety of wearing apparel."

But few know that at one   time it  was ' tho   homo . of   tho   lovely   Madame  Rocamior. who' frequently held receptions  in tho then sumptuously decorated rooms.  Every colebrity of tho Restoration at one  time or another   did   homage   within its  walls to tho colebratod beauty.  The building was   erectod   toward   the end of tho  seventeenth century   by   the' great artist  and urchitoct Dailly, for*tho Countess de'  Verne.   In tho early'part of the last century it became tho property of tho Count  of Toulouse, son of   Madame" de Monte-  span'.'   In   the   time   of   Napoleon I. the  State acquired the place and converted it  into a military prison.    The   secretary of  the   first   court-martial   held   within its  walls was   M. Fouche, and it was to woo  his daughter that Victor Hugo,   the poet,  went daily to   this gloomy   abode. , The  lady was married from this .vory prison,  and the wedding feast   took   placo in the  hall wlwro Major Estorhazy tho other day  went through his trial.

This is how Zola is described by Stuart  Honry in "Hours   with   Famous Parisians:"   A business   man,   no emotion, no  ideals, no imagination,   no poetry, in his  personal intercourse.   Ho   docs not try to  win or tmtertain you.'    Ho   takes no personal interest in you, and does not expect  you to tafco any personal interest in him.  Ho talks frankly and freely   about every  thing, but in a secular  way.   Ho   makes  life seem   to   you   merely   a commercial  career. Fiction for him is oditionsof 100,-  000 francs a year.    His   magisterial , and  magnificent   panoramas   of   descriptions,  unequalled for their kind, are   all' measured off in his mind as so   many   rods of  printed matter at so much a rod. No personal magnetism, no   sentiment,   no perfume, no roso colors.    Life   has   been for  him a blunt, rude, brutish thing. He has  conqucrea merely because he has   worked  harder - than   any   ono   elso.    With him,  naturalistic   litcraturo   succeeds   only by  the sweat   of   the   brow.

What a Skilled  Mechanic  Can  Do With  JEven Limited Facilities. ,  Many machines, like lathes, churns  and sewing machines, are operated by  hand or foot power; but if a man has a  small stream of water at his disposal and  possesses a certain amount of ingenuity,  he can make a wheel that will utilize the  power of his stream, and keep it at work,  if he so desires, in his absence. A correspondent of the Iron Age tells' tho editor  of that publication of a motor which he  constructed recently. Ho says that he  lived in a city- where he could get water,  but not electricity. .From the, latter remark it is to he inferred that he would  have bought a small electric motor if he  had only enjoyed the,, means for driving  It.  His homemade wheebwas about .seven  inches in diameter, not' counting, the  buckets, which were an inch and a half  long, radially. The body of the wheel was  four inches thick, and the buckets were  of that height, therefore. * The wheol was  of sheet iron, soldered at the joints.*: To  drive it he had a fall equal to 40 feet, but  admitted only a small jet. ��������� For this purpose he - inserted a nozzle' taken from a  large oil can.

Surgeons who examined the bodies of  the men of the United States Marines  who died at Guantanamo have reported  that it is possible that the ghastly mutilations were caused -only by the bullets  from the Mauser rifles used by the Spanish, but, in the opinion of men who have  studied the work of the' Mauser rifle, <  there is much evidence to show that the  Spaniards used bullets that were practically ' explosive, thereby violating every  law of humanity in civilized warfare.   r  Many years ago every military power  but one agreed that, in , war, it would  use no explosive projectile less than one  inch in diameter. Spain was one of the  chief promoters of the agreement. The  one nation which did not join in the  agreement was the United States,  and it  ���������StxTIOI.

The  big guns will need remounting in many  cases, but this will be a mattorof very little trouble.  Perhaps some of the ships which Dewey  sunk' in Manila harbor may also bo saved.  Commodore Philip Hichborn, chief constructor of tho navy, scorns to think so.* _  If Commodore Hichborn says this can  be done, it is a foregone conclusion that it  is possible, for tho chief constructor of the,  navy is a man who speaks with tho confidence born of a thorough practical acquaintance with the work before hiin.  Tho methods of raising sunken ships  must vary largely according to existing  circumstances, but they may be said  broadly to depend upon three factors���������  first, the depth of water; second, the size  and weight of the ship,and, third, the nature and extent of the injuries by which  the ship was sunk.  Several methods might be employed for  raising vessels. Tho first operation, in  any case, would be to send down divers to  make an examination and report their  condition. In case the injuries should not  be extensive, scows would be moored on  each side of tho wreck as it; lies, with lifting apparatus of sufficient power to raise  the immersed weight. The injuries to tho  exterior of the hull could then be temporarily closed by the divers and chains passed  around-under-the vessel. She could then  be raised until the top of the hatch coamings was above water, and the vessel  pumped out.  Another method more likely to be usod  in case of extensive injury would bo to  sink pontoons or casks, provided with  means for attachment to the hull of the  sunken craft. A sufficient volume of these  must be provided and judiciously located  to supply sufficient buoyancy to float the  vessel-to the surface or as nearly as possible on an even keel. The wreck can then  be towed into shallow water and operations for completing the salvage cai'ried  on to greater advantage.  Some of the smaller ships of the Manila  fleet it would hardly pay to raise, as, for  instance, the Marquise del Duero, a small  iron gunboat of 500 tons displacement  and 23 years old. .  This problem of saving the sunken ships  of the enemy comes directly before Commodore Hichborn. It is heedless to say  that just now he is a very busy man. He  is peculiarly fitted for the work because of  his many years of practical experience.  Commodore Hichborn is a native of  Charlestown, Mass., and is 59 years old.

Some of these  expedients are as primitive and simple as  grandmother's remedies for colds, revers,.  torpid liver and the like, and thoy are  squally as effective. At a little dinner  party at an up-town club not long ago,  the subject of sleeplessness thrust itself  into the general discussion, and various  experiences wero narrated. One found the  genii of slumber in a__glass of Scotch ale,  another in a cup of hot water, another in  a bromide, and another in a book or  newspaper, ��������� _' ,  '   ���������  "Now lee me tell iny way of getting to  sleep when I feel nervous and   wakeful,''  said a woman who was born in New England, and who   takes   pride   in   the fact  that sho ombodios family traditions nearly  two hundred years old.

You count  them ono by one, and by and by you will  see two jump over tho   stile   at the same  time; next a whole   lot   or them will go  over in a   bunch,   and   you will lose the  count.    Everything   then becomes vague,  and for a short time you see   an   endlesB  string of sheep moving forward, growing  more indistinct with each movement, until you are sound aslneD."  An Odd Writing Desk.  A young artist has concocted a pretty  writing desk out of an easel and a flat  wooden box with & lid. In illustrating  it the New York Tribune says: The box  part is placed upright on the easel and  securely fastened. This forms a little  recess deep enough for a narrow shelf,  and a space for clock, inkstand, glue  refused on'the same ground that a man  might refuse to sign an agreement not to  be a traitor to his country���������that the mere  request was an insufferable' insult.  It is a fact, Lproved by many -experiments, as well as by the British campaign in the Chitral, that only under  exceptional circumstances will one of the  small calibre bullets used in modern  military rifles cause mutilation.' The bullet is specially prepared so that it cannot  "mushroom." It can also be speciallv  prepared so that it will���������and Spain's  troops have found out how to do it.  The Mauser bullet inflicts a wound  horrible enough, even without' the Spanish improvement. If one of the ordinary  bullets hits a man in the chest at 1,000  yards it will pass through him. The hole  at the point of entrance would not admit  the little finger of a surgeon, but that at  the point of exit would admit his clenched  fist.  Under the same circumstances, with  one of the "Spanish improved" bullets,  the wound at the point of entrance would  admit a man's fist. There would be no  discernible point of exit, for there simply  would bo no back left upon the man thus  struck. ' 7  1 This, according to the descriptions   received   from   Guantanamo,   exactly   describes the condition of the bodies ' of the,  marines   killed   by   the' Spanish, except  that they   had  shot   them   in   the back.  The result was the   utter  destruction   of  the viscera and the production of-wounds_  of such ghastliness that it is small   wonder the survivors believed that  deliberate,  bestiality on   the   part   of the Spaniards  had produced the conditions they   found.  The marines were wrong   in   believing  that Spanish knives and machetes mutilated their dead comrades.  The bullets carried by the Mauser -rifles  used by the Spanish are not as large  around as an ordinary load pencil and  are about one inch long. A heavy chargo  of smokeless powder gives them a velocity unequalled by any of the larger calibres. Because of this high velocity it was  found at first that the ordinary leaden  bullets "stripped" in the barrel of the  gun. It was also shown that, because of  this same velocity, they would assume  strange shapes and inflict the most horrible wounds.  Partly to prevent this loss of weight in  the bullet and partly from the dictates  of humanity tho ordnance experts of every  country have invariably insisted that the  leaden bullets shall be inclosed in a hardened casing   of   copper,   German silver  Millionaire   Russell  Sucre  Upon  tlie Proposed Anglo-American Alliance    '  ���������Wiiy He i'uvors It. ; '  The other day the famous New, York  millionaire, Russell Sage, was asked  whether it would be a good, thing for the  United States to create a debt to'con*-  tinue and keep going the ��������� Spanish-  American war, and whether, if his an-"  swer was in the affirmative, the bonds  should be offered to the people of. that  country. ,The financier replied: _ .  ._���������  "I think it would   be.

"That's cologne, auntie."  "Well, I'll take it."

EASEL WRITING DESK.  pot and other impedimenta of a writing  table, while above are receptacles for  paper, envelopes, etc. The lid lets down  with a hinge and forms a writing shelf.  Wrought iron legs are arranged so that  when the lid is shut they fold up and  hold it in place. The inside of the box  and the shelf are both covered with  green folt ornamented with brass nails.  or nickeled steel. The Spaniards are supposed to encase their bullets in nickeled  copper. Captain Lawrence L. Bruff, instructor of ordnance and gunnery at West  Point and one of the greatest living  authorities on ordnance, says of these  small   calibre bullets:  "The wounds are less serious and the  shattering* effect on the bones less than  with the old projectile. The shock or  stopping power is also less as the. calibre  decreases, unless the bullet acts explosively, and hence it has been proposed for  the very small calibres to remove the  jacket from the point of the bullet, thus  causing it to spread out in front on striking."  This means that all that is necessary  to convert one of the most humane of  projectiles into tho most savagely destructive missile ever devised by man is to file  or cut away part of tho hardened casing  covering the point ot the bullet. The soft  lead; thus exposed, will spread the second  it strikes anything, and, on the body of  a man, will make a hole as big as a football.  It seems   to   be   only recently that the  Spaniards   have   taken   to   the   use    of  "mushroom" bullets.    It   is without the  bounds of possibility to suppose that   the  officers in command of the Spanish troops  knew what was going   on,   just   as  it is  impossible that the wounds   found   upon  the bodies of the   United   States  dead at  Guantanamo wero inflicted by regulation  Mauser bullets.    It is, unfortunately, the  easiest thing in the world   to   convert   a  reglation bullet into an explosive missile.  It happens that it will, take a file   to   do  the work with one ot tho bullets   used in  the United States' Lee-Motford rifles, but  that is only because the bullet happens to  be cased in nickeled steel.    The   Spanish  Mauser bullets   are   cased   with nickeled  copper, which can   be   removed from the  point of the bullet with a knife.  RUSSELL  SAGE. **  We can't trust the French people.

Hon. J. Balfour, as  Chancellor of that renowned seat of  learning, took the chair. The  Times adds: :The presence of  statesmen of the most divergent political opinions in domestic matters upon neutral platforms is happily ' an every-day feature of our  public life."

The town is as old as  the human nice, and it grows with the  height of years; it is wrapped in the fog  of Idler's dreams, its streets are paved  with, discarded schemes and sprinkled  with useless tears.  .���������Selected.  :   Total .     $2,410.30  Incorporation, Expanse $282. oO  Election expense    -00 0t'  Olfice expense    140 11  Office rent.:     88"00  Clerk's salary '.   u5 "������  Advertising    192 50  Fire protection ���������  OOL;JO_  Street  lighting *...������������������   191-05  'Street*   405*5������  Street  crossings     -***  Side- walks ..'
