New "Westminster, Dec- 7.��������� 'I he  output of the Harrison Lake salmon  hatchery lor the present season will '' chlag today against the government  amount to over thirty million young ; foreign policy, .created ^ indication  salmon, and the entire number is do- | from the government benches by rc-'  ing well, with every prospect that jeu.illK to the situation in Russia as.'  tbey wiir all be cared for and liber  ated  without trouble.  Supciiiitendent Thomas Robinson,'  who is down on- an olhcial- trip, ic-  ports ha'\ ing had a most successful  season at ihe hatchery and that thc  entire output of the institution ... is  coming on as well as could be expected. Nearly ten million of tbe fry  ha>e already been hatched.  Ponds are n:rw     being dug so that i  tbe young "salmon can  be turned out  into them as soon as they become too  large for the troughs,   and they  will  be cared for in  these ponds until tlie  proper time to liberate  them ;jn. the  various rivers, streams'and  lakes.  The totaioutput f   oi   I lie season of  thirty-one   million   is made  up        of  twenty-seven  million   sec!-eyes       and  four million spiing salmon and     co-  lioes.    No   steelhctn.il   ova  was   taken  this season.  This  is the  first  season  that     the  Harrison Lake hatchery has been operated on a large scale,  it only having  been  partially completed       last  season, and the output is the largest  that    has    ever been handled     by a  hatchery  in a year  in   this district.  The aiveragc output of   the Don  Accord hatchery is  ten million.   o   THE CHIVALRY   OP1 THE  SOUTH  "In an Ins visit to tbe south," says  the Birmingham, Alabama, Ledger,  ''not ono man olTcicd the slightest  rudeness to the piesident. No one  tned to approacb too closely  to him.  Great,      Mg,      good-humored   crowds  greeted  h.m every where., and  ninety- cd.'/" GermanyT should ^recognize  proof that the time was. comine; when  the   pioietarist    and not the cabinet,  would  decide the ojucstion of war or  peace.  "What .the Russian people are  now showing their ruler, can, the done''  shouted  the socialist leader,  "also Jiy  other  European     people.   We are of  the opinion that people wiM  never a'U  low . themselves to be again driven: into war.   Today  war can, only    ." ;bc  made  with" thc support' of,the ' entire  people." Continuing,. Herr  Babel  said*  "Thc "present, time is a" serious  one.'   Do yoii believe that what, is go-'  ing    'on' in the  East is not cxeifjng  the German laboring pco pic'     most  profoundly?

Herr Babel added.    "If  the  German   laborers     fail  you you are lost, and I tell 'you  that  the day will come.    You have no conception  of thc empjittcrmont of   thc  hearts, of German workmen today."  "Now that Russian  absolutism   is  approaching  its  end,"  hc continued,  ''Germany enjoys the reputation    of  being the most, reactionary state , in  the world.   Since the peace of   Portsmouth,  Germany's s.ituaticii in     the  Far East is precarious,  because Germany, through her interference with  the  peach    of    Shimon'iski,  is   blacl>.-  i^allcd  in Japan.

Thc commission held  its sitting in thc county couit room  at the court house, which was   well  filled  wMh  spectators.    The proceedings  were commenced by reading  th'e  commission     of     His Honor Judge  Lampman.  Mr.  D. M.   Ebcrts, K.C., appeared  for the Council   of Public  Instruction  and Mr.  R.   T.

' ���������'  ' Again Mr. Ebei'ts asked 4s to what  pupils   were  represented   by  Mr.   Elliott,   whereupon     Mr Elliott asked  that it be placed on iccord that    hc  appeared for  Miss  Cameron.  Mr. Eherts attacked the statement  that Miss Cameron had not been pei-  milted to sec tibc books. Every opportunity would be given'-Miss Jam-  eron to make what- inspection ?hc  eared to. The department sought to  bide- nothing.  ���������Mr Elliott asked that it he drc-;t-  ed that the books be produced 'before  'the 'commission.

As  is generally     known  the Seattle  I Lumber Milling Company, a concern  ; backed  hy eastern    capital,   with  E.  } .1.  Pal'-e as its  local  supcrintendcivt-,  has   established   its  headqiiarters     at  Mosi'.uito Day, a point' about ten miles   from    tbe  first  mentioned  settlement.   Aitnough only  organized some  months     ago,    considerable progress  lias   already   been   made   towards   (he  installation of one of the largest  mill  ing plants in the North Pacific. That,  such   a .statement  is not  an   idle    exaggeration  may  be realized  when it  is explained   that     sn   thc eoutr.sei bf  time it is thc intention to-construct  about  a mile of wharf along the waterfront of  the harbor,   which  is ad-  miraiWly located   for   the  purpose, and  that,   when in full  operation,  a staff  ' of  approximately   2,000   workmen will  .be necessary to carry on its business.

When (he Queen  City  left  this was practically    complete.

The site of      the  mall   presents   a strikingly   animated  scene, what was only a short,   time  ago as dreary antl deserted as      any  part of   the coast having been     converted  into a' vcrtiable hive  of industry.    Thc hum of machinery  and the  sound of .(he workmen at their 'Uif ������'.'������  is music to the ears  of all who have  the commercial advancement of Vancouver  Island at heart. It   was so to  the   passenger   whom   (he   Times   reporter interviewed,  and who pfedicts  that within a year the district.,in,''tbe.  immediate  vicinity   of  thc mill     will  mark   a village  of  -.1,000   inhabitants  at least.   He bases bis statement upon      (be authoritative  announcement  that     half, that number of workmen  will be needed  to carry on thc. industry   on   the extensive   scale   outlined  by thc'directors of the ScatLlfcLum-.  her and Milling Company.

Tbe dice box was then given to Alfred,  who fell on his knees and prayed aloud:  "Almighty   God,   thou   kuowest   I   air  Innocent.   Protect mc, I beseech thee!**  Rising to bis feet, he threw the dice  with   such   force  that  one   of   tbeln  broke iu two.   Tbe unbroken one showed six, the broken one also showed six  on tho larger portion, and the bit that  had been split off showed one, giving  a total of thirteen, or one more than  the throw of Ralph.   The whole audience thrilled with astonishment, while  the prince exclaimed,  "God has spoken.'" Ralph, regarding the miracle as a  sign from heaven, confessed, his guilt  and was sentenced to death. It Is probable that Alfred ever after did  not  number himself among those who look  upon thirteen as an unlucky number.���������  London Tatler.  w  December Bargains  Just received ,,y Express, the ".ea Iiii* or Lad.es Neckwear and  iJeilb you ever w,,sh t0 see.

On  thc  mountains   at  the' back  of Ladysmith deer arc  said  to be  fairly   plentiful   this  year,   and  a   number have beeen shot in     that  section.  Some have also been brought  into  (own   from  the  opposite side  of  the  bay     and   from  the Oyster  district.       Birds   arc said  to  be scarce  this year.
