LONDON INDIGNANT.  London, Feb    23.���������A  stiong chord  of indignation is bounded by the London daily n3\\spa;.eis     tins morning  over the sernr-ou cial statement rc'a-  ti\e to the decision of the North Sea  Commission giung to Russia the victory, but it is st.ll  ho ed  that  lhe  publication of   the full tc\t-ot    the  commission' tepoit mav modify the-  impression produced by the pie'imin-  ary  version, which is one of intense  disappointment. Th-   Daily   Mail  goes so far as to dccl.ve that the decision has dealt a death blow to arbitration.  Some of the newspaper1* l.lame thc  government T01 ever consenting lo  submit the matter to arbitration.  They only find cold comfort in / the  fact that the country, by doing so,  avoided war with Rrssia.  No question is raised that the decision must he respected, and Great  Britain's share of the costs will be  ruefully paid, but it is considered  that the decision leaves the question  of a neutral's right on the high seas  in a deplorably unsatisfactory, state,  and creates a dangerous precedent.

New Burgh, N.Y., Feb. 22.���������Albert  Eugene Carr, a veteran printer and  editor, died at his house in Marlborough late last night, aged 70.  He edited various papers in New-  York state, and Wisconsin, and for  2t years was one of the editors of  the Rome Citizen. Of late years he  published  the Marlborough  Record.  Mr. Carr represented Greene County in the Wisconsin Assembly in  1865. ������.*  TOO MUCH CARE  KILLED THE INDIAN  Last w?ek an Indian named Gabriel  who  lives  ten miles  from Savonas,  j on  Ten Mile  Creek,  along the road  to      Mamcttc .Lake,  was  accidently  ! shot   by thc     discharge  of  his   own  ' rilii.'   and   succumbed .to   his  injuries  the  following day.  ! . lie was out hunting deer with his  son, named Willie, and was carrying  his ride'all loaded in readiness for  use should a deer be sighted, across the saddle in front of him. Sud-  'denly his horse slipped and fell, but  aware of the possible danger, Gabriel   Hung the rifle away from him  ; to   avoid   accidents.    Unfortunately,  j however,  the rifle struck a stick, the  concussion caused it to discharge and  tho   bullet  hit  him,   entering       the  small  or the back, passing completely     through    his body and emerging  'from  his chest in  front.  He    called  out tb his .son, who was rifing some  distance     off,   and  then  rode  home,  thus  displaying  remarkable fortitude  ' and  vitality.  I The wound w-as a mortal one, and  he recognized thai, his end was at  hand. For that -reason he refused to  have a doctor sent for, saying he  would he dead before medical aid  could reach I im. He remained perfectly    conscious until he died,  the  , next evening.  \'VP  ':-..''

(he Provincial     House that it  would help  things somewhat  il" there  were  bi-ennial,   instead   ofanniial sessions     of thc House is not without  merit.  It is conceded  that there     is  too much tinkering with the laws as  they exist,  and many new measures  are introduced each year that are not ^  in the interest of good government.  A  little knowledge      is  a dangerous  thing, and there seems 'to he men in  the Legislature who do not possess  enough knowledge of condditioi.s  turd  the consequences  of a proposed "law.  For instance,  take-the introduction  of tlie Smelter eight-hour hill.     Enquiries and strict search Fail to show  that smelter employees desired that  a bill such as this should  pass. At Lhe  Tyee smelter     employees state that  there is no dissatisfaction with hours  considering tlie wage-; paid, which average, wc are informed, 150 cents per  day more at the Tyee than is  paid  by their peincipal  compitor  on     the  coast,     thc Taco'ma Smelting Company.     At Trail  employees of     the  great Trail   Smelting  Company  petitioned the Legislature to leave     th?  smelting industry alone.   There  was  no call for Mr.     Ifawthornthwaitc's  bill, or in the amendment act  to the  eight-heir   law. The     fact  that  the;  liret mentioned war defeated last e.-  ehing by tho decisive vote of 2(i     to  12,  and the other,     the amendment  act, was badly defeated in committee  should  be  instructinc.  ���������It     is not more laws the country  wants,     but     more industries,  and  without -stable" laws capital will nol,���������  enlist itself.  ed.   The mam consideration  entering  into  the calculations  of  the  -incoiu-  promising advocates  cf a prosecuting  of the war is that Japanese '.inane..d  l"sources must become exhausted ic-  DA1LY   ioie Kussi������. s.

Among the 'moderates a more hopeful  ,eel.ng    ej.is.ts   that   the   go\einur?nt  may" meet the situation  in afaiily  .satisfactory     fashion.   A  responsible  cabinet with i\i.

"What   Emperor Nicholas  has  so  far  decided to do seems to be to request  of France to ask thc British foreign  office to inquire of Japan what terms  might be expected  were Russia     to  propose peace.    Russia  will  thus   he  able to refuse open negotiations     if  Japan's     terms  aie exorbitant  and  the Russian  Emperor could again appeal to thc d sionlenled classes    to  support lhe war  as easier to      hc-ir  than the price, of peace.  LONDON BELIEFS.  London, Feb. 22.���������Thc terms on  which Russia is reported 1c> l.e prepared to conclude peace are regarded  in official circles in London as inadequate and largely of a tentative nature. Among the British officials the  hope of a speedy cessation of hostilities is mostly based on ofi'cial advices telling the increasing ascendancy and activity of the peace party in  Russia- The British officials entertain little doubt that if Russia will,  express her willingness to conclude  peace on terms which will recognize  Japan as the victor a satisfactory solution could he reached through the  good offices of France and Great Britain.

Owing to some delay in the letter,  sent by the Ladysmith Association  team to the .Nanaimo League, the  first match between Ladysmith and  Nanaimo, that was to ha^e been ar-  langed for the 26th, has been post-,  porred for a week. The Nanaimo Herald reniaiks as follows:  Mr. R. Adam - received a letter  fiom Ladysmith last evening enclosing flO entrance fee for the Ladysmith team for the B.C. Challenge  Cup. Accornpaning the letter was a  request 'that the Nanaimo team go  to Ladysmith on Sunday next to play  thc fust game and they would come  up the following week to play the  second game in Nanaimo. The letter  was wiitten last Sunday, but according to the date stamp was not  posted till ycsteiday, and as it only  got into Mr. Adam's hands last evening, rt was loo late to get the  hoys together to go down next Sunday.  Mr. Adam, however, makes the pro  posal that the' same arrangement be  deferred one week^arrd then carried  out, and if this is agreeable to Ladysmith it will be done.  In the meantime it behooves Nanaimo players to get out and practice without inteimission as Ladysmith can put up a dandy team that  will take a lot of beating. (   o   THE MAT.
