Prof.. Lowe is accompanied on his mission here     by  l'\  A.   Smith,  constructing arid  gas  engineer,    and .the latter  Saturday  put a gang of-men to work pn    the  vacant property on Store strfctei;������;ist  opposite  the Telegraph "hotel,  where  leniporary ovens' will  be erected  for  thc purpose of testing. ^Prof.- Lowe  on Saturday1 had an> interview with  Mr. James' Dunsmuir, of the Wellington  collieries,  dining' which  he outlined'his plans'to'him.  Work on the building of "the temporary ' avens "will be- rushed with all-  haste, so as to have them completed  in. time to demonstrate the tests to  a party of firianciaal men whom Prof.  Lowe   has    invited     to come hcre<.  about the middle" of this week.  -^Saturday Prof.  Lowe was' visited  by prominent local men interested in  coal  fields,  dnr of whom after      a  lengthy consultation with the professor was  heard  to express  the most  unbounded   surprise   and  admiration  lor thc scientist and. his new methods, some of     the results of which,  such as coke, etc.,,be had just handled  and   pronounced  from  an expert  Do-nt of view to be superior  to anything produced  by any  other  methods in the world.   As to the treatment o! the    volatile gasses results  are said to have been ol gained which  -some of the most advanced methods  of science in     New York and elsewhere, have failed lo secure.  Prof. Lowe is interested in procuring a steady supply of coal fomse in  California smelting and other industries, He considers that Biitish Columbia coal will serve this purpose,  and be obtainable more easily      and  of superior miajity than elsewhere on  the Pacific coast.     It fs to the min->  es of this Island that he looks     to  fturnish  thai supply,  provided,       of  course,  that the tests  prove  satisfactory.

The Ji-Ji says it  is  not   possible to  place  much  hope  in the  outcome of the negotiations.  It is patent  to  everybody  that  the  best coiuse     open tto Russia is the  conclusion of peace, as it is now impossible for  her lo recovci  her  lost  piesiige.   'Should M. Witte conclude  a peace which    means the acceptance  of Japan's terms,  he will find himself  confronted   by  a strong  opposition  which  will cost him  the confi-  ' deuce of the -Emperor  and the Russian  government.    If  M.   Witte     is  bia,\ e enough to subordinate hi? personal   interest  completely  to       the  good  of his country,  he  is in  an uni-  ufje  position    to lender  a meritious  __er. ice    to his country.    But it is  too much lo expect such a sentiment  nity are nothing but meie bluff. Russian diplomacy has shown itself to  be full of bluffing and intimidation,  partcularly so duiing the period pre  vious  to  the present hostilities.  WhatoAcr   measures   Russia  takes,  the fact stands out clear as daylight)  that   Sal-halm   is   under   occupation,-  and the  fate of Kamchatka is within   easy  command of   Japan.    Other  portions   of Russia's  maratime  possessions  are within easy access     of  Japan.    Whatoer differences may exist      between   the  plenipotentiaries,  they can only be m the point and degree of  cession   and   indemnity,   not  in   the  principle   of  cession  and   indemnity.  Japan desires that Russia ought to  pay more     at lent.on  to  Manchuria  than to Portsmouth.
