When the Minnesota sails from  here April   29th,     she will have between 65,000   and 70,000 barrels and  will leave behind some 30,000 barrels  for lack of room.   The Kanagaw will  also    take 10,000     barrels when she  sails today.

John's Nfld., April 8.���������Proin.er  Bond lias moved in the Legislature  for Lhe adoption of a new bill against  American nsliing se^seis. it provides that if an American fishing vessel is found witliin i.luxc nuks of tne  coust of Newfoundland with bait,  supplies or outfits punhased within  any port in the Island, the equip-  fniLiit, stores and cargo shall be forfeited.  It also provides that  (he  task     of]  prosing  that      lyhe Lail-, supplies     or  on tuts   were  not purchased  in   violation oi this act  will  test u-.on      the  owners of the  vessels.     The bill was  opposed  by  the opposition  under the  leadership  of the former minister   of  finance.     But a division of  the house  sustained  the premier  by a'sote     of  l!i  to 0.  In moving for the adoption  of the bill, the premier claimed   that  tlie treaty of ISIS does not give  the  Americans right to fish in  the bays,  harbors  and  creeks  on that     section  of the coast where they were granted  certain  privileges.        His contention  was  based    upon the  fact  that     the  treaty    does      not  specifically  state;  that  the bays,      harbors  and  creeks  shall be open to American fishermen.  Mr. Moein,  ex-Minister of  Finance,  moved that the bill be read 6 months  hence and  his  motion was  seconded  hy Mr.   Cashin,      thc senior  member  for Ferryl, and  who temporarily abandoned  the ranks of his party      for  the purpose of doing so.     Mr.  Morin  contended   t/liat  the  Premier's    argument in support of his measure   was  untenable and declared that under the  terms      of     treaty   the      Americans  have the right to land on the   Island  Singapore.   The  steamer  Kusang  reports having   sighted twelve craisers  piesumably Japanese,  steaming some  distance ahead, evidently a Japanese  snouting'    squadron.

London,   Ap"U   8.���������The  sudden shifting of  interest" in the war from the  land   to  the  sea and   the apparently  imminent prospects of a fearful  nat-  tle between  the Russian and      the  Japanese     situations   in   the   China  sea'", have'   revived  all  the  interest  shown   here   in   thc earlier  developments of the struggle in  the        Fat-  East. - It is  taken for granted  A71-  miral Togo's ships reported to bc in  the  neighborhood   of  Singapore     in  the.middle of March,  are still       iii  that vicinity,  and  tli3 report     from  Pcnang   that' twelve   Japanese  ships  werc seen steaming ahead  of    ��������� the ���������  Russian 'warships is interpreted     to  mean   that   the   former   were  scouts  sent out  by  Togo, to  get in     touch  with thc  Russians,   and   when    their  object is accomplished  to retire    ou  the     main    body    of   the   Japanese  sqqadron.    The reports  about       the  number   of  the  Russian  ships  vary,  but they arc over thirty five battleships/cruisers,   colliers   and   torpedo  boats     have   passed   the  Straits of  Singapore.    The   underwriters      here  presume      from    the'   northeasterly  course they were steering that after  reaching Singapore the Russian ships  are trying to reach the French port  of   Saigon,   Cochin-China.    However,  it  is     pointed   out  that  a Japanese  squadron   of   twenty-two   ships       is  still  off  Horsburg  lighthouse,  where  it    was  reported  March   14th:    Thc  two naval forces, were this afternoon  only about  thirty miles apart,    and  may" ba in touch.at any moment.  MA-STERY  OF TIIE  SEA.  St.  Petersburg-,      April 8.���������Intense  interest  was aroused here today     by  the announcement that Admiral   Ro-  jes tvensky's   s-cfluartron   was     passing  Singapore,    but  the  Admiralty   does  not  admit  that it has received   official  confirmation  of the  report.     In  fact  the officials  have ol served unusual  reticence for some time about the  movements     and   intentions   of     the  squadron, but ns slated seseral times  in   these   despatches,   the    Associated  Press had   posilive    !;������������������ ev, '<���������', ������������������*     that  Admiral      Rojestvensky   was   leaving  Admiral  Ncbogatoff,   (commander    of  a division of the Second J'acific squadron)  behind, and  was bound for the  Far  Eiist   to  try  conclusions     with  Admiral Togo.  All Russian hopes of changing   the  fortune of war,  are staked uhon   the  issue and for some time the Admiralty has declared  that only pea: e could  intervene   to  prevent  a final   trial for  the mastery   "of the sea.     Unofficial  information  also  indicated  that   Rojestvensky   intended  to   pass   through  the Strait?  o< Malacca.  i    General  Oku's  Headquarters  in the  Field,   April   7.���������'lhe      Japanese  are  making every     effort to prevent thc  appearance of disease during the coming     warm      weal her.

Justice that  this was ultra  vires  of   the  Provincial   Legislature.    The  present  bill,  therefore,    proposed     to repeal  this I  provision in the act of last year. The  Attorney-General noted with extreme  regret an inclination on  the  part of  the present Justice     at Ottawa   to  disallow  the  acts   of  this   province.  The present bill was  introduced because  "they were really  obliged to  do    it at the behest of  their masters."  The motion passed.  On motion of the Attorney-General  the     bill    to amend the Coal Mines  Regulation Act and the bill relating  to  the employment of works carried  on  under franchises granted  by   the  provincial   parliament  passed   second  reading.       He explained   that   these  bills  provided for  the exclusion     of  Mongolians from     employment      in  mines     underground    and  on  works  chartered     by the province.    These  acts previously passed by the Legislature had  becn disallowed  by     the  Dominion   authorities.    The   present  bills simply proposed a re-enactment  of these measures.  The bill respecting provincial land  surveyors passed second reading.  This bill relieves the government of  responsibility in connection with Ihe  examination of surveyors and empow  ers the surveyors of the province to  pass'upon/such matters themselves,  incorporation being effected under the  oil! for this purpose.  The bill introduced on the previous  nigh i; by the Premier respecting the  Victoria Terminal Railway and the  New Westminster Southern Railway  passed second reading.  Railway Proposals.  Hon. Mr. McBride rose to ma':e an  announcement   with   respect   to   proposals  made  to  the government      in  regaid   to  railway  construction.    He  said that various proposals had been  under   consideration   by   Jhe   goyeni- ,mt he WnS   con.  ment and that after careM del.beiaM     ��������� U-gislalion and gunr-  tion, in the interests ���������f the prov.nc,    _  =       %|lhout s,(isfvinR- llie House  the  conclusion  had  been  arrived    at ,  that it was not in their ability    to  submit this session,  a comprehensive  quate, transportation, he did not propose to adopt what was commonly  known as railway legislation.  It     was    unnecessary   for him to  point out' as the fact was-  apparent  | to ali,  that peculiar physical   conditions  obtained in this country;, and  that more that ordinary' care,   must  be-exercised   in regard  to  any     proposal  to     aid railway    construction.  The government was not unconscious  of these difficulties, .nor were    they  unconscious  of     thc desirability     of  bringing about the     materialization  of railway schemes.     They proposed  to do  their best to secure from   responsible people contracts and agreements, which' would mean actual construction,  the interest of the people  being at the same time safeguarded.  It was not until  a few hours   ago  that these conclusions had been forced upon him,  when every means     in  his power had been exhausted to secure for the country a conprchensive  railway   scheme.     Having  failed     in  this,  it was   his  duty to mal--e    this  'frank  statement  to the House,     and  he hoped the House and the   country  would   take tihe statement in   spirit  in which it was made.  Mr. J. A. McDonald was glad that   -  the premier had broken silence     en  this question,     lie  thought it would  be conceded by every ii;ei:er .if   the  House that it was less'definite, ���������  and  less satisfactory than  the pronouncement made ro the House a year ago.  If the Premier meant  that lie  would  ! use every  endeavor   to  bring     about  the construction of railways  in     the  province,   with   no better  jirosp-xit  of  I results  than his  undertakings  of  the  I past,    then     he feared that the pro-  [vince of British Columbia would have  I to  wait a  long   time before the present regime would materialize in any-  1 thing of that kind.  |    The Premier had said that he would  not consider or lay  before the House  any railway  legislation  unless  he se-  cuu.n1 such a guarantee     as satisfied  him     that     immediate construction  would  result.     The.  Premier  had not  taken   thc   House   into his  confidence  as to what proposals which had been  made  to him by   the    different     railway corporations  with which he had  had   to deal,   and   asked   the     House  to  assist  him in   framing  such legislation as  would protect the people of  .lhe province. The railway companies could not enforce their views up-  : on the legislature. But to come and  l say thai he proposed to take the  ; House into his  confidence as he   had  scheme.   Last year, before the house  adjourned,  he  had spoken of holding  and do everything necessary to    se- j garding the maintainanoe of the puri ' a summer session, being at the time  cure cargoes offish for their vessels. J ity of the    drinking water and other 6Dcc-ur aged    in     the  belief  that hc  preventive measures will be taken.  iwhat these guarantees were, or what  form the aid should take,. was not  taking tl.e House into his confidence  at all.

Usually the appointment is auL vitam tut  culpam, as the old phrase reads. It  is a serious mailer in our young un-  iversipes lo have all thc professors  growing old at the same time. In  some places only an epidemic, a time  limit or an age limit can save    the,  situation.  I have two fixed ideas, well known  to  my     frii/hds.  harmless obession.-,,  witli   which   I sometimes   bore   them,  hut which  have  a direct bearing on  this  Important problem.   The first is  the   comparative   usclessness   of   men  above forty  years  of age.   This  mav  seem   shocking  and yet,   read   aiight  the  world's  history hears out     this  statement.

Mrs. Stanford numbered among her  intimate friends many prominent women like Mrs. Grant and Mrs. Benjamin Harrison. She was what is  callvd a "woman's woman'". The  homely virtues meant more to her  tlian those commanding and showy,  and 'In r manner remained quiet and  ���������nnc'-sU-nlatious.
