M.

A  year  ago,  it- is said,  it would have  been an easy  matter to loiul'ict  ne-  negotiations with     China for the exclusion  of Chinese laborers only.  Now, however, it is understood the  Chinese officials are disposed to regard the signing of such a treaty beneath the dignity of their government. The reason for this assumption at Pekin" of this new attitude,  is not. quite as clear to the officials  here, though' in sonic circles it is  attributed to the influence of foreign  powers.  is expressed in official circles wheth-c  er   - it    will  be possible to objtain  China's  . consent to another  treaty  with the' United States which would  provide    for     tlie exclusion even of  Chinese laborers from  this-country.  The State DepartnunI, is  aware" of  the  ill   feeling  throughout  China  on  the .subject, and now that the immigration treaty  with China has been  allowed Nto lapse without  the negotiations  of a new  agreement,       reports have ��������� reached here that China  is inclined hereafter to refuse, to sign  any  similar  convention.  China's position appeal s to be  that the exclusion of Chinese citizens  from a friendly country  is ' in  CHILD KIDNAPPED BY A DOG  A    dog is supposed ,to have kidnap]  ped a little -baby at Crewe,    About  dinner time Mrs. Gill placed her liU  tie sixfweeksiold son in its coC whilst  she went about her hou&ehoki duties."  The . little    fellow soon went off to  sleep, and his     mother abseiiteiLher-  seil from the roam.    Returning a few  minutes^later    she went towards the  cot to see if     the child was  sleeping  soundly,     when  she was horrllicd  to  find tlie cot unoccupied'.    The clothes  were in     perfect order, but the child  was missingl        The mother became  ���������distracted at     thc sudden loss of her  child, and, satisfying herself that the  little one had not by any means fallen     from the     cot, she rushed into  the street and raised an alarm.    Later the little one was found lying in  a back     passage at 1 he     rear of the  house, and it presented signs of hav.  ing been     terribly mauled.    Its head  and face were covered with Hood and  its body- was     badly bruised. Blood-  was issuing     from its eyes and nose,  and one    side of the     face was fearfully   mangled.   Everybody was at a  loss to know     how    thc child had so  mysteriously disappeared, .and how it,  came by such frightful  injuries. Some  light, however,     was thrown on  the  subjjeet     later en hy thc    police.   A  rabbit coursing     dog has lately ibcen  in the habit of visiting the premises,  and it     is. supposeH that it took the  little one from  its resting place and  carried.it into the back yard and into the     passage?      The   dog, whose  owner lives     in the    district, has a  litter of puppies.    It is, however, oni,.  ly supposition that it took the child,  hut it was seen near the house about  the time of the occurrence.    The ba.  by is in ������a critical condition.  MARINE.  Further advices, show that -the fine  Norwegian steamer'Tricolor, 'Capitaiki  Wold,  is a total-loss     on the" locks-  half a mile "distant  from   the" lighthouse on Cafe Mendicino,  where she  went ashore during a fog  on Monday  jiiight.     Th    .eTricolor  was  en route  to San  Francisco with 5,800 tons of  coal  from   thvs  port  on  account  of  the   Wellington    Colliery   Company,  to whom the steamer was chartered.  Captain Herman Wold, master ol the  steamer, and     liis crew of 26 nun,  have abandoned the wreck, and have  arrived at Eureka, California,        on  hoard a tug which went to. the assistance of  the  wrecked collier.     The  steamer..lies- broads-de  on. . the ibeach  among the rocks.   Her value is ���������estimated  at $200,000.  KAISER DID  NOT INTERFERE  Berlin,  July 1'7.���������The German  foreign office denies utterly the report  published by the correspondent     of  the London, paper, at Stockholm  to  the effect that Emperor William   in  his recent interview witii tho     Rus>-  s-Jaii Emperor', sought to obtain'   the  consent of tlie latter for a   prince of  the     house of Hohenzollern  to  ascend the throne of Norway.  shors at a, hotel,  whence he sent    al  long despatch to St. Pctersbiuig, appears     to be somewhat annoyed-at  the delay,   the  Russian  peace - party  being already     late when compared  -with the     Japanese.   ,The Russians  were most interested ��������� in reading the  preas despatches describing the arri^  val in  Ncw���������York of Baicn Komura  and  his   party,  and expressed &  the  hope that the    Japanese conditions  would le,really as  moderate as set  New      Yrork,   July   27.���������Four   men  buried by the caving in of a tiench  thev      were digging  for  a new  gas  plant at Long Island City were saved "yesterday < by  laborers' who happened to  pass,  and saw  directly  in  front of them on what  appeared to  be  level ground,  a man's hand     and  part"     of     the   forearm.

Dr. Latham has been practicing in  Eastern Washington for the past 20  years.    The store  which she       was  convicted of burning was the property of her son ami was willed to Miss  Johnson, to whom he was engaged.  After  a fruitless  contest  over      the  wiTl,  the store was burned  by   Dr'.  Latham.

As it has  been years since a Biiti sh  fleet. appeared     in    thai sea, the announcement is connected in the public mind  with  Emperor William's, recent  toui  and  the visit oi a German squadron  to  Scandinavian waters.   /The cruise  of  the British fleet  is regarded ,   as  designated  to counteract   the'    preponderance of German influence .-   in  Scandinavian politics.   The  Admiralty,   however, discourages  the idea of  politics  having any  bearing on     the  cruise,  and sajs that the Baltic  is  an open sea and that fleet is simply  going  thereto execute -^manoeuvres,  ceremonious visits not"being coritcm  plated.

Mr. Kiddie informs us that     thfe  means steady work from now on at  the  smelter,   at  least, until  the end  of the year, on ore now held or secured,'and makes-the outlook,   very  bright  for  future operations.   Meantime     work     at  the  Mount  Sicker  mines,     while progressing- steadily,  will  not at  present increase  the ore  shipments from that point.  If work on Texada Island is'    re^  sumed to the extent that now seems  most probable, it may add materially to    the smelting work at Ladysmith.  The Tyec Company are to be congratulated on thc work of the energetic manager in securing against all  the smelter      now here.

The story came out of one  ot  the
yachting   journals  a little  before   the
interoational   iace  in   1901   in   which
it was prophesied that should       the
British     champion sail down  to do-
feat  again   some consolation   would
be found in the fact that the successful' defender would  be sailed  by  one
who  was   "raiscjp by ouiselve'f���the
bone of our bone and flesh,"  says a
New York exchange.   This was��Chas.
Bair,   the  victorious  skipper  of the
Columbia,,   who' two   years  later was1
���desliricd      lo  beat his old  command
with -the new national yacht Reliance. Since  the  early  flO's  flaer     has
been a full-fledged eitixen  of the  United   States,   and   it  is as an 'American  that he wishes  to be considered,
and it is for  America .that he     won
his   greatest   victories  anil"  this   last
greatest  triumph.
Harr  was born in  Gourock,  Scotland,  on July   11th,  18C4, and  spent
his  boyhood on the rocky coast     ol
the sea,  where he learned,  naturally
enough, the rudiments of seamtyiwhip.
He  was apprenticed   to   the grocery
trade  in  Greenock when  ahoy,  but
was  destined  soc'ii  to leave  the shop
for   an   element  through  con)i|taeriiig

was made.   Theie aie sonic tin illing

the season he saved  the ship      and

Not long after this experience he
took over to Ameiica the twenty-ton

days, and sailed her in numeioiu<i
races on this side of the Atlantic.
lie was the shipper of the Fairlic
