Othcials here continue  to view, the  situation calmly.   They are especially desirous of having other ��������� nations,  particularly the United States, take  a sympathetic view of France's policy and  purposes  in Morocco.     This  leads  to expressions  of  much satisfaction in  the course of the United  States some     months ago whic)i indirectly      recognized France's paramount  position   in  Morocco,   , This  occurred  during  the Perdicaris case,  when the    United States sought the  good offices of France.   The  American action  in thus turning to France  was  widely commented on at    ' the  time,     as constituting an American  endorsement of the Anglo-French agreement.  THE  EARTHLY  PARADISE.

'-  MINISTER DELCASSE  MAKES A SIGNIFI  CANT SPEECH  (Associated Press Despatches.)  Tangier, March  31.���������Emperor   William of Germany  paid  a flying visit  to Tangier today,  remaining barely  two hours on shore.   The elaborate  preparations for his reception and entertainment was  much changed,   the  Emperor confining himself to a visit  to the German, legation, where     he  received deputations of Germans    in  Morocco.

Stubbs  and  R.  P.  Schwerin,  on behalf of the owners of rail and transpacific steamship lines,  have decided  upon  some changes   in  the  steerage  passenger rales.    A  rate of $51  Asiatic steerage to Chinese and Japanese ports  has  been agreed upon for  the Canadian Pacific steamers       at;  Vancouver, the Hill st-eijliiers at Seattle and  the Harriman steamers    at  the wages of the men. They had economized in expense. They hnd invested a very large amount'of money in the most apripved appliances  for the economical   handling of coal,  but the   interests     of the Companv,  and the    interests of     Nanaimo are  son for this procedure was the rough  ness of the seas, but after the departure of the Hamburg it was stated on good authority that IL'mperor  William, having heard that there  was a possibility of an anti-French  demonstration on the occasion of his  visit, desired to avoid such an incident.   .  Another report which, however, has,  not received official confirmation but  is generally accepted, states that  the German legation was informed  that an anarchist plot had been discovered and advised that the Emperor be dissuaded from landing. Count  Von Tattenbach Ashoid visited- the  German legation and interviewed the  Moorish authorities and afterwards  notified His Majesty that every precaution had been taken, but advised  that the programme he confined to a  visit to the legation.  Notwithstanding the" shortness of  His Majesty's stay in Tangier, the  occasion will certainly he remembered as one of the most brilliant and  picturesque in the history of this  seaport. The Moors exhibited unwonted enthusiasm, and throughout  the two hours of the Emperor's stay  on shore no outward incident occurred, and His Majesty appeared to  thoroughly enjoy his visit.  Paris, April 1.���������Foieign Minister  Delcasse made a significant speech in  the Senate today which evidently  was designed to meet questions arising in connection with the visit of  Emperor William to Tangier. The  Minister spoke with moderation, but  his closing declaration that resistance in interested quarters would  not cause France to modify her policy brought out vigorous applause.  ."France's  Moroccan   policy,'! Mr.  Delcasse  said,   "continues   on       the  same condition as it was begun. The  Sultan's  weakness  and  the anarchy  resulting   therefrom   were   prejudicial  to everybody and especially to France  and Algeria.   We have to seek a remedy, for      the intolerable  situation  without allowing  our action  to  awaken   the .suspicion  of other nations.  France does not pretend to base her  interests on disregard for  the interests  of  others.    Thence  arose negotiations resulting ia agreements proclaiming   that   France,  possesses       a  special standing in Morocco. The Anglo-French agreement recognizes that  it  is   France's -destiny   to  assist    in  opening Morocco  to civilization    and  also that from economic point      of  view all nations have an equal footing.  "The      Franco-Spanish   agreement.,  which conforms  to  the views       and  terms      of  the   Anglo-French   treaty  were   immediately   communicated   to  the Sultan.   Of this fact the issue of  the   Moroccan     loan   is proof.       If  France sought a pretext for intervention,      one existed in  the disturbed  state of the Algerian frontier. However,  for friendship  for Morocco and  a clear conception  of her  own interests,  France merely pointed out the  necessity      for    establishing    order.  by the authorities that they are unable to send them help. Serious risings are reported from the Borpat,  Dunaburg, Souhoum, Warsaw, Bialy-  stok, Orela, Smolensk, Veshresensha,  Buddbiitt and Wenden districts. A  number of French citizens claim 150-  000 rubles for damages to their property in the Yalta district.  St. Petersburg, April 1.���������The latest outbreak of peasants is in the  Werrad district of Lithuania (northeastern Poland) A regular mob of  peasants are marching through the  country pillaging and demolishing t/he  houses of the land owners. One proprietor was shot. The peasants entered Werrad, ^wrecked 'the'voka shop  became drunk and terrorized the inhabitants.    The police were helpless  and communication with the outside  world is severed.  MORE BOMBS.  Lodz, Russian Poland, April 1.���������S.  Zarbalovich, police commissioner, of  the second district, was seriously injured this afternoon by a bomb  which was thrown at him on the  street.  The  police commissioner  had  been  summoned by telephone to come    to  the office of the chief of police and  started on foot, followed by, a policeman.   The former noticed at the corner of Konstantinowsk and  Zawadk  streets  a poorly  clad  man,  carrying"  a basket.   As  Zabaloviez approached  the      man  suddenly   hurled   a bomb,  which exploded     with terrific force,  blowing off the commissioner's   feet  and severely  wounding him in     the  breast.    It is feared his injuries will  prove fatal.    The accompanying   po-  licemao drew his sword and wounded  the commissioner's  assailant on  the  head.    When >the prisoner was searched a loaded revolver and some cartridges were found in his pocketsl He  is reported  to  be dying  from       the  sword cust received.

C, April 1.���������(5. 10 p.  m.)���������Special���������The Garrison defeated  Ladysmith in the final for the championship of the Vancouver Island league this afternoon here by a score of  one to nothing.  The match was a very fast one, and  one of the most interesting seen - in  this town for along time. ' The Garrison made their score in the first  half. In the second part of the.game  despite the desperate efforts of Ladysmith to equal the score, no home  shots were made.  The Ledger was delayed tonight in.  order  that the result of the match  could be conveyed to the Ladysmith  public as soon as  possible.  The above, result" will be heard  with much regret, but as stated in  the above special, the Ladysmith  boys put up a fine game and although they lost, the beating was  anything   but  an   overwhelming   one.  ed a royal salute.   This was followed  by a salute from the land batteries.  The fleet and land stations were  dressed with bunting in honor of the  imperial visitor. The governor, Field  Marshal Sir George Stuart White  and his staff immediately went on  board the Hamburg and welcomed  his Majesty. Owing to the lateness  of his arrival, Emperor William decided to omit the drive through the  town, which had been arranged for  the afternoon.  At     six p.m. the Emperor landed  and was received by the German consul, and inspected the guards of honor, the Yorkshire infantry and     the  Munster fusiliers,  which  were drawn  of      the   commander-in-chief,  Governor   White    ta\c      a  ThaTposilion  will  still hold.

The   Gentle,   Brusque   und   Welcome  Farjmliou.se  Intruder.  1 "When Horace Greeley was first married and brought his bride home on a  visit," said an old acquaintance, "a  sugar party was given in their honor on  a neighboring farm. All the guests  had arrived, and we were looking out  watching ..for the belated - bride and  groom. At last we saw something appearing in the distance. As this same  object came nearer we discovered it  was the old'white horse of the Gree-  leys slowly picking his way through  the mud.' On his.back sat the bride  In a brilliant yellow frock, with a  green velvet belt,' and behind her,  wrapped in his famous white overcoat, sat the editor of the New York  Tribune. It was the funniest sight I  ever saw and set us off in fits of  laughing. I remember .that I, simply  lay down and rolled upon the floor in ;  a spasm of mirth. j  "JMr. Greeley came home every year \  and after a day or two oh the. farm  ���������would, start out to  walk  miles. aiid  call on people.   He was never known  to knock  ft a  farmhouse door. a'No  matter whether be knew the inmates  or not he would push open the door, I  ���������walk right in,  sit down by the fire-' j  place and fall to discussing crops and  other   topics   dear   to   the   farmer's  heart.    Everybody  was  glad to wel'  come this gentle, brusque intruder."  "jf-efiisci-ee" of "irog.- \  If any Londoner crawling up to business by train or tram through the fog  turned his idle mind to wondering why  it was called "fog" he would probably  decide that it could not have been called anything else. "Fog" Is its obvious  name Yet there is imich speculation  among philologists ori^ this point. Dr.  Murrnv's dictionary suggests an interesting" pedigree. As far back as the  fourteenth century "fog" meant aftei-  crass, the rank grass that sprang up  after hay harvest or grew in the winter while in the north it meant moss.  Then "foggy" enme to mean boggy.  Next it was used to mean bloated or  miTy of the flesh of men or animals,  and'finally, as applied to ale or air, it  meant thick, and our modern fog was  derived back from this "foggy." Skeat,  however, goes straight to the Danish  ������fo" " as in '"snee fog," a snowstorm,  from "fyge," to drift. The worst of  London fogs is that they do not drift  fast enough.-London Chronicle.

The  Conditions   'Which  Brins About  These   Deadly   Blasts.  ' The sandstorms of African deserts  ore caused by the great power of th������  Bun's rays, the extreme dryness of the  air and the small conducting power ol  the sand. The superficial layers ol  Band in the deserts of Africa and  Arabia often become heated to 200 degrees F. to. a depth of several inches*  The air resting on this hot sand becomes also greatly heated, thus causing  ascending currents. As a result' aiif  flows in from all sides, and, different  currents meeting, cyclones are formed,  which are swept onward by the wind  prevailing at the time. Since the temperature of the air, originally high, is1  etill further raised by the heated grains  of sand1 with which It is loaded, it  rapidly increases to a most intolerable  degree. In the shade it has been known  to reach 12G degrees. It is to the parching dryness of this wind, its glowing  heat and its choking dust and not, as is  sometimes supposed, to any poisonous  qualities it possesses that its' destructive effects on animal life are to be  Ascribed. The effects of sandstorms  are most terrible, large caravans being  frequently overwhelmed and destroyed  by them. It was by their agency that  the armies of Cambyses and Sennacherib wrere annihilated.  ICKET   OFFICE  f'o".   Government      and   Yates  Sts.  ', i.-loria, B.

"Naturally tbe fish of the deep portions of the ocean are carnivorous, no  vegetable life being found below 200  fathoms," writes W. S. Harwood in  Harper's Magazine. "In the Atlantic  ocean the vast Sargasso sea, containing  8,000,000 square miles of surface���������a  great marine prairie as large as the  . whole of the United States exclusive of  Alaska and dependent islands���������affords  Vegetable for" for uncountable animals, which i . their due time, die and  are precipitated to the depths, their  bodies in turn to be eaten by the animals which live far below all vegetation. So it is throughout the whole  ocean; animal life is constantly falling  from the surface waters for the support of the animal life of the abyss. A  very large number of tbe deep sea animals are exceedingly tenuous or translucent in form���������so to put it���������having no  special organs of nutrition, but taking  in their nourishment through the walls  of their bodies, appropriating from the  water'the food which suits them. Some  of them have a bony structure, a skeleton, which they form also from the  water, silica and carbonate of lime being the chief skeleton forming materials."           Unci  n. Derelict In Tovr.

Then   there's  the  man  who walks  down to bis office every morning, rain  or snow, in sunshine and in storm. Tbe  more distant his home from bis office  the more be will talk about It, and be  will tell you that be has become so accustomed to It that tbe only time he  can get an extra tbrill out of it is when  the streets are deep with snow and tbe  wind is blowing a hurricane.  .

Hut opposite to. the main-  lend and direct across from Vancouver,-    Oyster  Harbor  or, Ladysmith  Bay, has long been known as a safo  and commodious harbor.   It is    one  where large wharves are already established in connection with the coal  export trade     and with the freight  business, as the point of transfer,-by  the C.P.R. for the Islajnd freight.;In  connection with  this, matter  it    .is  worthy or remark that for the last  three years the 'transfer barge  - has  made its daily trip and has rarely;.is  ev������*r, been, delayed on account of bad  weather   or - "unfavorable  conditions,  and has ne\erl met with an accident.  Nanaimo     Harbor,     Departure Bay,  Chamainus and other safe harbors are  found alongv    the coast.   Near     the  north end of the island safe harbors  are found that may. yet be used   ;as  last ports of call for steamers leaving  Victoria for. the  Orient, "   fast,  trains      connecting  from  Ladysmith  landing, or conveying to, passengers  and mails.  Fisheries.  The waters ' of Vancouver Island  teem with fish. Hjrring in vast quantities visit our shores. A profitable  trade in fisheries which includes, off  our more northern shores, ha|iL*t and  other deep sea iish, is being built' up  and is capable or much greater dpvel-  epment.  Water Power.  Of water power, some very large  and permanent streams are found  with natural falls, some again can  without great expense be developed.  It seems safe to assume that great  water power caa be secured, comparatively cheap, at various points  oa Vancouver Island. Particularly is  this - the ease in the northern part  of the Islaad.  Agricultural Wealth.  Agricultural development on" Vancouver    Island must be very     great  tin the immediate future.    Tracts of  land will each year be cleared    and  put into   crops if railway facilities  are -given to certain sections     that  sew' find valuable farm lauds too far  from markets.    Iucluded in   farming  stock raising is becoming a marked  feature in Island development.  High  grades of    cattle are being    raised  from iaported stock, and the butter  and cheese of Vancouver Island    is  now well known for its high grade.  Hunting' and, Fishing.  The big game of Vancouver Island  has not been, hunted extensively and  is abundant in certain sections. Deer  and other four-footed game is found  in all parts of the Island.       Ducks,  geese,     pheasants, grouse and quail  are to be found ia season in    numbers that gladden the, heart of    the  hunter.    With tbo development   that  will result  from  the  extension     of  the lises of the E. & N.     Railway,  North -Vancouver Island will increase  its wealth many fold.   Mines will be  opened and other natural sources   of  wealth     now valueless,     will,  with  transportation,  sooii prove  to      the  world that as' a whole there is     no  other part of the rich Province      of  British  Cqlumbja " that can     equal  Vancouver Island.

First among the natural    resources are the great coal measures  Mining.  In connection with the mineral developments of the Island, it must be  understood that only during the past  five years has any attempt, at metal  mining been ma.de on a large. scale.  On the west coast of the Island, beginning at East Sook, mineral has  been found and small shipments  made from^San Juan, Port Renfrew,  Alberui, Uchueklesit, Clayoquoit,  Kennedy Lake, Taferrio Inlet, (peer  Creek), Bedwee] Sound, (Bear���������'.River), Trout' River,.CJaygpoit SpuRfj,  Sidney Inlet, Ahousett,' Abiatiasctt,  Nootka, Kyuquot and Quatsiao,  while in the middle of the Island at  Central lake a; large deposit of mineral has recently been, discovered.;  The schist beds lying to the south  of the  eoal measures  and  commonly  known as the Mt. Sicker schist belt,  extends  from Mt;  Sicker up"|p;   tfie'  Nanaitno Lakes which has ijeen" evened and wprked at s.even pqjnts,; a  distanpe of 40 miles:    Naniely,    H%  Sicker, Mt, Brenton, Chemainus, Ma-  juba, Rhinehardt,      Nanaimo  Lake.B,  and  Englishmans River.    Owing     to  the     fact_   that, the land is  heavily  timbered,    prospecting is necessarily  slow     and     expensive, great importance must be attached to the   cutting of   trailsi injand  {rpn^  tvte  v&\h  road..   " As the result ot such a trail,  three years ago, from Ladysmith   6  miles out,  several mineral  locations  have been made in  that vicinity, including   the     Majuba,   and  extending  west to tlie     R^inehajdt and Ngifai:  Lakes prqperty.        it wpujtj  appear  to be of the first importance to out  trails In order to.  open UP the POUH'  try to the prospector,    The opening  up of this mineral belt and the development of the mineral claims      will  follow the construction of a   branch  road, au-i the route from Mt. Sicker  and Mt.   Brentoii up the Ch.ernaiJ)ua  valley appears the most feasible ' as  it would follow along the line of the  claims     mentioned   to  the  Nanaimo  Lakes,  on  to and  including  Albevn}:  II is  seated,     that     the Nanaimo  Lakes  properties have large     showings     of pre aiid would undoubtedly  make producing mines with railroad  synopsis ���������" of regulations  for disposal of minerals,  on dominion lands in manitoba the northwest teri  : ritories and the yukon  territory;  ; Coal���������Coal lands may bo purchased  at HO per acre for soft coal and $20  for anthracite.

A father with the right kind of a  feeling towards his children would  never place himseir in such a position that his child could not or would  not recognize his right to correct.  The proper attention developcs both  submission to reproof and affection for the parent administering it.  The man who is so busy that he can  not make the acquaintance of his  own family is to be pitied, and so is  the family. Business so.: fills the  mind and the life of the modern man  that in many cases his affections are  blunted until they almost cease to  exist. The eternal race after money  and social influence "becomes of greater importance than family or home,  and so it happens that many times  the mother is left to rear the children practically alone, without the  help and guidance that should l>e  hers', from the husband  and father.  Some      men     seem to think  that  when  they  have furnished   the necessaries  of life for  their  families they  have     done their whole     duty. If a  child  has such a father,  he is     not  likely  to grow very confidential with  him.    Consequently   the  father loses  much of that     influence which would  be of inestimable value to the child  in future years.   Men  who  thus  neglect to invite the confidence and affection of their children do not  ''.always  mean it that way.  Sometimes  it is mere carelessness, caused by an  overpressure of business cares.  It is  i great pity however,   that the cares  jf business should  come  between father and child; it should be as eiqfcal-  iy divided as possible, allowing,     of  course,  for the fact that the mother  is     naturally more with  the child,  and consequently  gains  a little bet-  Lei: insight into his hopes and desires.���������Detroit News.  :-������f;s~  M Rodin has been praising our  fogs and our art.
