Captain  Walker and  Mr.   Fisher  ar-  ,'red  on   tile steam   launch   Alliance  Litis  morning   from   a emirc  around  u\c' Islands,  through  Cowichan  Cap,  kc.   The object that Messrs/ Walker  pid Fisher have in  view is' the     establishment  of  a manufactory   whoie  jlog iish  can-be dried,   oil   extracted,  liiiil      other business   in   connect ii n  pith (his line of work done.  Nothing ceitain has been decided  mi by the party as yet, but il now  beams .quite likely that a manufac-  lory will be     established on Cialinno  Island. That it will be established,  on a sound, sensible basis, with'plenty of capital behind it, ami will givs  employment'to a large number of  hands, moslly Indians and Japs, but  also to some while men.  While it is premature as yet to  state that all this will be done and  employment found at a nearby point  for a couple of hundred men .for o,jght  or nine luonlhs in the year, it certainly looks very encouraging for the  establishment of the project. Much  ot I lie credit for getting H-hc" scheme  in the hands of practical men, and  inr-ii with the necessary funds to in*  vist, is duo to Mr. James iWamock.  toVERNMENT CAN-i   v  D1DA rE ELECTED  The following" report of the Alberni election is taken from the llcrud:  Manson   is   the  man,  and   Aiivirni  has decided fo throw l;i her lot with  the Mcltrid?.government.

The  vote    will  prove the largest ev������r polled   ,i  the  district,   and  it   is likely   that  when  the  count is, com piece  to   total   over  five hundred votes.

Berlin, July 2-1.���������The foreign office  hare is advised that a meeting between Emperor William and Emperor. Nicholas took place early today  off the Swedish coast, near the Island-,of Bjccrkoc.  The Emperor Nicholas  wrote    -to  Emperor     William several clays ago  that if,  during  (Ii3 hitter's yachting  in the Baltic, he should approach the  Russian   shoic   be   (Emperor   Nicholas)  would be pleased  to meet him.  The German Emperor replied that he  would lie glad  to cruise to any con  venient      point,  and  the     Island  of  Bjoerkoe was suggested,    it, was understood  that iiie. conversation  was  lo  be entirely personal and intimate  and  therefoie no minister from  either government was present, although  the Russian minister of marine is in  Emperor Nicholas' suite.   The meeting  is  a sequence  1o  the correspondence     that has   been  < oing  on  between     the'   ; Emperors     concerning  peaco,      in  which  Emperor- William  urged      Emperor   Nicholas   to   tale  steps   towards   peace.    Emperor William      was  then  co-operating-  with  President   Roosevelt in seeking      to  bring the belligerents to,.a discussion  of the terms' of peace and in the present meeting tlie Associated Press is  authoritively, informed  that Emperor  William will continue to advise peace  should  the Russian Emperor  ask for  his further views, and it would     lie  very  natural that Emperor  Nicholas  should do so,  as  a tfevolnpment      of  tlie  correspondence  which   has       .already taken place.

In' France automobiling has  reached   its highest    development,   though  our 'manufacturers   arc   fast   closing  tae gap  that separates them     from  tlieir-'Gallic  competitors.   Not   6*hly  is  the machine made in France,  but  roads for it     to do its best are provided.    BiarriU  is  constructing      a  ninety-niilc boulevard on the coast of  Are-achon      for   the exclusive  use of  fast  motor cars.   On it there will be-  no speed restrictions,  and every man  and   woman ambitious  to break      a  record   or  a neck   will  have   Tree   license   to  do so.    LumlilDi'ing   trucks,  family .parties drawn, by old DoWbhi,  nursemaid's' with   peramlbulators   will  not attempt to cross  the  hows     of  sevonty-iiiile-an-houi:     devil  wagons.  Solid  walls  will line each  side of  a  seventy-foot wide boulevard,  and any  accidents     thatnnay enliven a day's  sport      will   bo confined  among  the  speeders ^themselves.   Like the course'  at Orniond,>|ptl.oricla,  this French race  track will be on the beach, where interlopers" will  have small  excuse to  go. The   construction   will   cost   $1,-  (500,000,   a comparatively   small    amount when  the magnitude of the automobile  business  is'considered.
