Witte undoubtely will      be  tho v.cws of thc military | party, to-  'cqtial     to  the  high- and ' impoicCant  day indignantly  rejects the interpie-' mission with which the Emperor has  tation put upon M. Wittc's appoint- ' graciously charged   him   ami     know  ment abroad,  namely,   that  it      is  equivalent  to the acceptance  of  any  terms* Japan may choose to -offer, except levelling the  fortifications      of  Vladivostok.    Thc paper calls attention   tc  Emperor Nicholas'   marginal  notes on various  addresses expressing  his determination  to continue the  war, and especially refers to bis Majesty's     telegram to Lieut. Gcneial  JJnevitch June 14th, which the commander-in-chief read to the army and  which has just  been  published  ueie,  in which the Emperor pledged   himself   to   do   everything    possible   to  lighten the heavy  task of the,   i-.ny,   Witte's sincere desire for peace,  and' expressed confidence  that all ob-  ���������    stacles     would be finally overcome,  and  that the war would end happily  !    for the Ru.ss.-an Army, as proof that  |    the  Envperor  had  no intentions    to  mata peace at any price.   As further  - evidence,  the Sviet draws attention  i   to  thecunusual note attached   to lbe  ,   official .announcement of M-.  Witte's  appointment  as   follows:   "Being  in-  bow  to protect the interests -of Kus  sia."  The Slovo thinks that the desire of  the powers, especially o/,. Great Britain, in view of Emperor William's  attitfiflc toward France, to see Russia rc-hafcitalcd in order to preserve  thc balance of power in'Europe,  should -.uti'ome a^strr jig: - diplomatic  wca])on in the hands of the Russian  plenipotentiaries for the restoration  practically o���������f the status quo ante  bcllimi.  Tbe  Bourse Gazette says: that, inasmuch  as   Japan  appreciates       M.  the  ground  at the outset is cleared      of  distrust      and      suspicion.    At' the  same     lime,  the paper adds," Japan  will'find that while M. .Witt* will lie  reasonable,   he  will   make no       disgraceful   or   hiiinilating   concessions.  Tiie Bourse Gazette considers it likely  that  the  negotiations -will' ccs-ilt  not cwily in peace, .but-in ,a close and  lasting  approaebment.  At  thc weekly prayer meet ing    of  Uie   Euclid   Avenue   Baptist   Church,  in .Cleveland,  Ohio,  last night .John  D.'

After  a number of  persons had spoken Mr. Rockerfcllcr  said:   "There aie  two men  who appear  equally  zealous' in   the cause of  Christianity, but one is more effective-than the other.

Reports from Thomastoii say that  one shock was felt there shortly after five o'clock o-f about 15 seconds'  duration.

THE OAR.  Thc. present year should mark an  ���������epoch in professional >sculHng, as  there is more than the* usual amount  of big events on the tapis, remarks  an Eastern exchange. At home here  there will be a match between Ed-die  Duinan, of Toronto, and Sullivan of-  England, for thc champk/nship oi  A'tneriea, while in Australia, Towns,  the lire-sent champion, will defend his  title against Jim Staribriry. Tiie latter i.s considered to have a spleiidi::  ���������chance to win out. WhV-.Uvcr the re.  .suit, Canadians will have an opnor-  ������������������Uuiity of seeing them work, as they  are- to row double for the world's  i-hampi'liiship at the Dominion Exhibit-job at New Westminster. In this  race they will row against Dunian  and Sullivan who will hkve settled  their own argument by that time.  It seems as if professional racing  were returning to its old popularity.  LACROSSE.  New Westminster 8; Vancouver G,  Vanco-iivcr, July 1-3.���������It looked like  old lime lacrosse yesterday, when  Rennie and llavey mixed it in the  second quarter and both, teams dropped their sticks and went at it reaching for each other's solars with left  and rij'.hl, until the crowd butted in  andtorc the pugilists apart..  Aside from that, however, it was  counted by thc~aiulieucc the best exhibition of lacrosse that has ever  been  seen  al the Point for years.  Ravey at third home is altogether  a false alarm. Yesterday, the only  play whirl; he seemed to thoroughly  iindi rsletid'was to exeiute a Hank  movement on his man and pound him  over the elbows and the muse] > with  his si'ek. This style of playing in  I lie sec-aid quarter became so barefaced that, failing action by Quigley,  Geo.  Rennie moved for a suspension  out on the Brockton (rounds, and nothing but the surerior goal keeping  of Sandy Grey kept New W'e tmih-  ster from being hopelessly'defeated.  Mickey Morrison played a fair hard  working game ���������throughout, but did  some awfully wild shooting,' missing-  a chance lo score cn several occasions when all be had to do was to  shoot straight. liieLey is a goift  enough man, however," to hold a place  en any team, and it may |Lfc,said itf-  him that his check will never get  muchfarther away than the length of  his stick.  Joe Keyivolds played his usual c-Ul-  tiine game to'which there is nothing  to    add. Joe Reynold's , old-time  .".ami-  limes  that  he is  the best    on  .l.e  I old.  On U'csMmiiistcT side, tiie personnel  i.eihg mi:c*li the same as on previous  (.cia.sions, the playing req'-.iires. ��������� less  .-omiiiei.t. Wills Grey should have  been put oil the field and out of the  game and clear of the league, altogether for that trick of his of cracking  his cheek over the head instead of  going after the ball.  Gifford, Turnbull and Cddy played  a beautiful game, keeping Matheson,  l-'orrcstcr and Reynolds so busy that-  they did not have time to run around  George Rennie was belter than over,  and Biscuits Tec'cis as g^od a man  as he was five yet-irs ago.  Tal.iug it all in all, the New Westminster hoys wojn because they have  the better team, but the Vancouver  boys put up a good game so much'  superior to any of their previous efforts this year that there is no comparison  at all.  Paris, July 15.���������The minister of  marine has receivi d a despatch from  Bizorta Tunis saying that'the efforts  to raise the floating dock to which  the submarine, boat had been fastened  were successful  this afternoon.

The  British Enipne is net an Empire in  the sense in which that lerin. has been  applied to an Empire which h-as gcie  before. The British colonies arc no  longer colonies in the sense in Kirch  that term was ougiinaily applied to  them. (Cheers.) ""What aie we all ?

JAS.  A. SMART.  Deputy Minister of tho Interior.  Department of the Interior, w    .  we  retain our own separate history, but  have we not our common ancestors';  have we not in the past a history  in which wc were, branches of one  stem; are we not able to have in the  futuie a history, a common history,  which Avill bi'loi.'gi to all of us?  (Cheois.)  Well, I have said for you, the  youngier branches of the Empire,  there is no limit to your progress ;  but even wc, even this grey old motherland which lias borne so long thc  burden of a great Empire and the  great responsibilities,, even we aie  no contemptible ally. _(llear, hear.),  We have given you no reason to be  .ashamed of ytjur relationship.  Cheers). We dare not face the pos-  [sil.ility of separation. (Near, hear.)  United we shall be always equal to  the great task that Pro\idonee has  'inposed upon us, united no man shall  make us afraid.- ("Cheers.)  Ifow arc we to reach this desirable*  position. It takes slitape on (lie Ian  guage of your Prime-Minister, who  said only the other day' ''Wc have  made oin* offer to the Mother-country,  we have offered to make a treaty  with her our * mutual aiUanUngc."  (Ifear, hear.) And the piincinlc upon which that"treaty i.s to be based,  is a very simple one, a fundamental  one. It i.s that, we should tieat our  friends a little better than, let us  say,   our competitors.  Think what they have lo deal with  ���������a gieut dominion under the mild  rule of the British Scown, which is  something which the world has never  seen or known before. Nothing like  it can you ldad of in J'istory, no ter-  lilory. so vast, np population so  \ast, no population so great, no-div���������  eisity of product so extraordinary,  You have an Empire���������your Empire���������  Ihat is what I wish to impress upon  you, your Empire as much as oias.  There is nothing that man can want,  there is no necessity of oui lnes, nothing which adds to our comfort, no  luxury which is' desirable .which cannot be," if you will have it, pioduced  within this Empire and interchanged  within it. (Cheers.) If you arc willing, anil the other branches of the  Imperial race, you may "blue a self-  sustained Empire. Think of that. I  have not time to develop it. Think  what a'self-sustained, Empire would  mean, and what a unique and absolutely 'unparalleled position it would  gi\e to the British Empire iu history.���������London  Exchange.  ���������  Miners' Drilling Machines,  Made to order and Repaired at shore  notice.
