EDQCOTED  IN  ^4"*-  FIRST CONSIGNMENT  REACHED NANAIMO  ������������+������-  Winnipeg, Adg.' 17.-Mrs. Kitty  Blaclcesleo was electrocuted yestet-  day afternoon m the batluooni of  her home at 21<i Vaughan street.  The accident hapiiened in a most peculiar inannct. She staitcd to take  a bath shortly after 4. o'clock, ,and  half an'hour later, not having reappeared, "friends m the bouse called to  her. No leply was' received and the  door w^'s. forced. She was lying on  her back in the bath tub, which contained about two inches of water,  and 'sin? was apparently dead. Dr.  Lehman, of thc Steele block, was  called ,a'nd pionounced her beyond human aid.    . <      - >  The, cause of death was only too  manifest'. A large scar -on hei right  hip and a broken electric light wire  pointed;, plainly to electrocution.  She had -evidently started to step  into tlie tub and hei foot had slipped. Throwing out her band instinctively, she bad giablbRd the lamp  socket, r' which was out of order.  This throw the full current of lib  volts through hei body, the citcuit  being completed j by contact with the  metal of the tub. The shock bad  thrown her, and in falling tlie \vue  had been - dragged from its Listenings. 'IjVith a cunent of that voltage passing-through her body, it  would be- impossible to loosen hei  grasp, and probmbjly rebdered partially unconscious by the "first shock-,  she had- been unable to let anyone  know .of fler condition.  Dr. IngiW was notilied of the accident,- and after looking over the situation allowed the body to be removed to the ��������� undertaking establishment ot Kcir, "Hawley & McNamee.  It is piobable that an inquest will  bef"held.    .  Mis.

One or two of  party could speak fairly good English, and one old fellow, who seemed to he a sort' of father to the  crowd, was keeping a ���������diary or memorandum of the trip. He had every  station marked down in his book,  and upon being told the name of the  station at which the train or boat  bad stopped, would write it down af^  ter lepeating it ovei several times  to get a semblance of the  pronunciation.  The Nanaimo Herald, of.this morn*  ing,  speaking of  the party,  says:  On tlie reverse of the letter     was  Am sending   you the   men.  written  you   can make  your   own     arrange-  proper  Thirteen led, blue, and yellow cap  ped members of the 'Indian Empire  of Uic class known as Sikhs, arriv.  ed ou the Joan last night bound for  Chemainus.

The  letter-which is written to Dr. Doui-  chen says Your first telegram stated wages ������1 7."i for men, $2.25 for  foreman, your latcr telegram, $2.00  and $205.

It is most unfortunate   that such a   class of men,   absolutely   useless   to a   community fas  ������ whole for they  never will and nev  er can be' other than the   class they  now are,'   should be brought into thu  Dominion.   .Laborers must he had   to  supply the demand,    but surely   from  tho   millions   of laboring men In the  British    Isles    who .could    so  vastly  better their, condition   by   coming to  this  country,  laborers  could be     secured.     There  is   something     wrong  with  our  immigration  laws  or     the  administration   of    the  same;    something    should  be    done,    and     that  speedily       to  better  existing   conditions.

L'., last  >venm|g   and invited   him   to   express  >)iis views    on   the  question   of     this  t^md of  immigration in general,   and  ho proposal    to   reduce  tbo    Chinese  iHead Tax in; particular.  fi In  reply   Mr.   Smith   localled    that  was  elected   to  the jDomin-  ?  ^hen he  j-<������n House ia 1900 as a Liberal Ui-  ,jior, representative he made a direct  pledge to the people of JNanamio  ?hat he would insist on the passage  >if an act increasing the Head Tax  jj>n Chinese, and if the government re  loused to enact such a law he would  I'lppose them. As a result of this  kho Head Tax on Chinese was m-  reased to ������300 and he was glad  '<>.o say it had been completely succ-  pWsful" in keeping . these undesirable  [immigrants out of the country, and  >his again had operated to.make la-  fior scarce and wages high. 'He believed in fact that no-act lhat had  liver been placed on the statute  ijiooks of Canada had brought such  fanmediate and palpable .benefits to  |;the w.o.rkinguien as this Act. Under  jthese circumstances he could not see  ;.how it was possible . for him to take  ?any stand but the one he had al-  '������ways taken   and that was that there  ���������';Should    be   absolutely    no   reduction  /In the tax   on Chinese   and also that  f'ievtery effort  be  made    to   kec'p ���������   out  'Jjof the ���������countrj' every 'class of undesir,  ftable   residents.  !>,'��������������������������� ��������� ���������     ���������      . .

"What this country needs nnd what  jl have always'advocated," went, nn  j-Mr. Smith, "is the Immigrn.l ion of  '���������/ men,like ourselves who know the beno  {fits ������nd are willing   and   capable   of  point nnd increiiso it a"   pos-siblo.  ���������'Such expectations it appears to  tie impossible lor tho Chinese to  luldll, amd t ha\e recommended these  employors who are, shoit 01 men to  lay their case beloie tbo Department  oi Jnumgiation at Ottawa, who  would make a systematic eliort to  induce settlers to come here from  the British Isles and from among  the best classes of laborers m ^continental I-Juiopc.

The letter in question is from a  nun whom the women declaie is a  very dear and good friend, and was  written upon thc leceipt ol ���������. certain  published reports to ,the effect' that  Esther was suffering from a severe  attack of typhoid fever, and as a re-4  suit was moaning and tossing on her;  bed of pain..  As an introductory the friend offers  la's deepest sympathy and consolation to Mrs. ���������Crefcld-, who must sit  alone iu her cell and heat- Llie moau-  ings and witness the tossings, and  all that sort, of thing, and think, of  the poor girl dying without being  able to administer- 'to"her'wants or'  cool her fevered brow. From this  it goes on in praise of the girl who  he supposes is so near death's door,  and characterizes her as "one who  knew .the right and dared to do it  in. spite of the fact that the. whole  world was against her who would  not forsake the truth and justice even though she die for it; a girl too  great and true to go uncondemncd in  this vile world."  In closing the friend ��������� writes: "If  she goes there will be many to follow her ibier and wet her grave with  tears, for she is thc truest, bravest  and noblest girl that lias ever blessed this earth."
