The Russo-Japanese war,  it is > ni ���������  mised, is lhe natural field into which  to look for an explanation, and    the  belief  was expressed by a number  of  Far Eastern'"interests yesterday ihat  these exports are in some  way connected  with  the eastern'conflict.    A  suggestion hazzared by one of     t.ln:  largest   Far   Eastern  interests       in  this city is  that the enforced activity of the Chinese government     owas  due to the exportation from China of  the old copper coins  for the conversion of   the copper   metal   contained  in them into war material, such, possibly,   as cartridges,  or electric   e;i-  pliances of one form or another.  .In  no oilier hypothesis, it is.urged, i re  the sudden outbursts* of activity  m  minting and-the enormous conn-acts  for  copper  that had -been placed  in  this country explainable.

A despatch from Honolulu says a  cargo of 1000 tons of coal, brought  from Seattle on the steamer Olym-  pia, having found no private purchasers, was oll'ercd today at auction.  There were no bids.  Capt. John Tmcbridgo, master of  the Olyinpia, says that a combination has been formed here against his  cargo, and he denounced it as an un-  Ameriea.n boycott.  It i.s understood that, the reason  that there weic no bidders is chat it  is thought that Lhe object of the  Olympia's trip here is to tal.e away'  a load of Japanese laborers. It is  believed that tho repetition of such  trips iiiijrht seriously affect the local  labor supply.  Capt. J. V.

London,   April   20.���������Foreign   Secretary Lansdowne has  taken occasion'  formally t0 deny, to the'Russian government the statement of the Novo  Vreinya. in     regard to the British  cruiser  Ippigena, .which vessel     -*,he  newspaper said, transmitted -by wireless .telegraphy the. information "that  she  had  passed -Admiral  Rojestvensky's "squadron; 130   miles  from    iai-  gon.    The' document i contained     the  specific statement  that thc Ippigena  did not even sight the squadron.  JAPAN   GROWS  WEARY.  . The recent announcement made by  the  Japanese 'government  that     the  fleet had  been  given  ordeis  to    sink  blockade-runners  without distinction,  has brought home to those who   en  gage.in this hitherto profitable trade  that hencefortti    it   will be a somewhat perilous pursuit'to follow, says  the.Chinese Mail.  In the past,, Japan, having the  desire to.act scrupulously according  to international law, has allowed  the captains and crews of vessels captured to go free after thc examinations at the prize court. Captains,  especially,, have seen in the enterprise payment resembling- small fortunes, and the risk of capture has  had no terrors for them. Many have,  in fact, courted capture in perference  : to risking the danger to being blown  up by mines. It,, is not the collection of steamers that Japan desires  so much, however, as the suppression  of the traffic. She has, at la"t tesn  forced to thc conclusion that whilst  inlernatir.ua! law is so leni^-t towards those v-To actually iconsent to  run the blockade there is not going-  to be any diminution in the trade  whilst there are Russian,ports in. the  East for ships to take contraband  goods to. Rather, there will be encouragement.  ���������Japan's experience has been unique  so far as blockade-runners are concerned. She has met men who iavc  honestly endeavored to carry out  their contract with the Russians but  iin the other band she fcas met those  who have accepted the Russian dole  and have cither run into the Japanese fleet wiihout hope of further remuneration or have attempted to sell  their ships to the Japanese before  leaving Hongkong or Shanghai. Wo  have it on good authority t'-at se -  eral attempts of this kind \ve--e m-> 'e.  but to the'credit of the Jaranee 'e  it said they did not disburse the desired coin. In stead they1 kept an  eye upon the shl, s and seized them  in their own good time. Apparently  thev have become weary of such work  . + .   WINNIPEG    BUILDING PERMITS.

PEOPLE AS THEY PASS.  One of the' first things noticed, by  j strangers in Seattle 'is the fact that  there are one or two hills .scattered  "promiscuous like",-as they say in  'New-England,: through the!city., The  other day an eastern woman reached  Seattle to, join her husband. She  has a small son of live and he is a  young man of some brains andcon-  siderable adaptability. As the trio  are to make their home.here, the  mother, after taking one good look  at the town, told the boy that the  first thing he should do would' be to  get used-to , the hills, as he would  probably have to climb a good many  of them. -  The easterners got comfortably settled in a flat uptown.   The flat is on  the, second floor, and there is a long,  straight staiiway     leading up to it.  On lhe second.   day of  their arrival  the   mother     heard a     noise on the  stairs,   i I  resembled ������������������'much the sound  of a iiiaii __ when be tries  to get upstairs     at '6     a-  m. after being Out  with the iioys, and later eoui.i.eiit.al-  ly informs   Ins wile that he had 'jus  alinful     'uitiatioii    al th'. lodge,  in*  dear.':   'lhe     mother  went  out  into  Lhe hall,   tier    small son was busily  A<������Uft*������<i******fe<^^&fe���������^o!j^4^,ftiefe**������������***^*������!������#*������  Co  Union  Brewing  NANAIMO,   B.

Tho tides are inconsiderable,   necessitating  no  costly  controlling works.   Labor   was abundant,- and so cheap that rt competed  successfully' with      mechanical   methods for    much     of the. work.   In the  early stages of thc work  hand labor  with wheelbarrows    and buckets was  largely-'.used,.-    and men even scooped  the iuud with their hands.

In these dredges the material was raised     to a height of -10 to  -J!   feet and     dumped into a hopper,  .whence  the spoil  was carried ashore  in a     couloir     some    220 feet long.  This couloir consisted of a trough or  spout    carried     by a skeleton frame  or   cantilever     of wrought iron, the  base of which rested     on a separate  float  alongside  the   dredge.   The cou-  lair had a slope shore-wards of about  1  in  10, and     the discharge was as-  sis'led by a stream of water, and by  a    chain     with     scrapers   attached  \\ hiiii was caused to travel down the  bottom or the couloir.  The greatest, difficulty was to dispose oT the material on the bank  safely, and it is evident that, whatever tiie length of the couloir, the  deposit, of mud, sand and .water must  sooner or later reach a point at  which some of the material will run  back again into lhe canal.���������Engineering Magazine.

The play was interesting, .and with slight exceptions, appeared to be thoroughly rehearsed  After the'firse act the theme never  once lacked interest, parts were all  carried through most creditably. The  fiist appearance of Miss Mathes was  greeted with applause and before sha  had spoken half-a-dozcn fiees she had  won her way info the hearts of the  audience. She is a cultured actress and her rich, clear voice, hcr  graceful movements and her clear,  natural manner of act ing ma' e her  deserving of the reputation she. has  won for herself on this coast.. Sha  is support-id by a fairly good company. In the. play last evening Norman Ililyard discharged his part in  a manner that was most entertaining, but of the male characters the  acting of Neil Brodie as Gen. Lus-  sac was the mest praisworthy. His  part called for clever work and he  was the right man in the rijjht  place. ���������  It can safely he said that Miss Mathes company is by far the cleverest  tbat has ever visited this city, and  those who turned out to the performance last evening were thoroughly  pleased  with   it.  In the presentation tonight the.  members of the company are said to  be seen at their best, so those who  patronize the alt'air can rely upon  spending an enjoyable evening.  Some of the specialties between the  acts last evening were very good, the  harp and mandolin duet, and the sons  by Mr. Hilyard being great "hits"  As  May   1st-  is  approaching i many  people  are either  getting  ready  for  Youse" cleaning or  moving.
