I answered  to say that there .were three parties  who had made "offers tor same as follows:     Mr.  Win. Beveridge,  Messrs.  Simon Lciser & Co.; and Mr.   Jiio.  Hickle, ' and  that  1 would   like the  minister  at his  earliest convenience  to instruct Mr. ^Henderson, the Public Works Inspector, to go to Ladysmith and  report on  the suitability  of-"    tlie sites  mentioned, pr  others  which'might b* available. The matter  rests there for reasons known only to*,  the department but as,soon as   Mr.  Henderson  ffets  instructions  he  will  proceed as above and the Department  will  act entirely on his report.  RALPH SMITH.  Sinoe   the -  receipt  of  the  above  public building at Ladysinith.  In re- | letter Mr.  Henderson has visited,La-  ply 1 l>eg to say that .the above money >js available until, June 30th, 19u.i,  before which the Government will  undoubtedly select necessary lands  for the purpose. Up to the present  I have informed  those  with  whom I  dysmith and looked over the various  sites, and his report is no doubt in  thc hands of the Department by this  lime. At present it is utterly impossible to say which site will tie  chosen  by  the department.  French capital will see President  Fallier, whom lie has not yet met.  From Paris the .King goes to Biarritz and will stay there until the  end of March .afterwards joining ihe  Royal yacht Victoria and Albert in  (he Mediterrciiran .whore it is said he  will .meet Empeior William. During  his stay at liarrik K ng Edward  will see King Alfonso and discuss  the details of the latter's marriage  with Princess F.na, of Ratlenburg.  King     Edward's tour cn-ates great  interest and   more especially   abroad, '  fiom  the point of  view of his polili-i  cal  possibilities ami     its bearing on  the Algeciras conference.     A  meeting ���������  between   King  Edward  and   Emperor ;  William is talked of both hrre and at  I'eilin but  no official confirmation   is   .  as j'cl    received.       , It seems certain  that  no definite plans have lren laid  by either  monaieh-and  a meeting   is  not  likely     to occur unkss the. Alge-  eiras     ''onfe*ence  reaches  an aimless  occasion of his visit to Vancouver on  March 31. As his stay will he very  short, it was necessary to eliminate  many  attentions   of a formal  clmrac.  ter which  would otherwise have been  included.   The  outline  provides   that  the  royal guest will  he meL on   his  arrival    fiom      Victoiia  by  special  steamer,  by a guard  of honor     from  (he  local     regimen I   of one hundred  men,  commanded  by a captain      and  two I ion kin ants.    This party  will k.t-  J tend liiin dining his entire visit. For  the afternoon a trip about, the city is  planned,  visiting Stanley  Park     and  all     points of local interest. In  (he  oicning the entire regiment will turn  out  and  there  will  probaiiily be      a  ���������street parade aud rcvicd on thc Cain  hie street grounds, to l>e followed [,y  a formal   reception   in   the  drill   hall.  Here   will   be  presented   the civic address  of welcome and  brief addresses  from      representative  organizations  From   10 o'clock* on  a reception       of  more   informal  character  will  be ten-  -ilerod him at the hotel  Vancouver for  the      benefit   of the general pu-.ilio,  which  will  conclude the  pioj.ramime.  The     party     will  leave for        thc  east by special I lain?, early the follow  ing morning.

Among, the suggestions made is one  that  will  instantly meet with     the  .'approval  of all  sport loving  people  and   that   i.s to -invite-the admiral of  the   UiuUmI   States  Pacific "squadron-:  to visit; Victoria at the time of thrs,,  cclel.jrat.ion, so that a good prograia-  , me..of aq.iatic  pastimes   may  be arranged between,the sailors of Uncle  Sam's navy and  those aboard II. M.  ships  Ej-jeria  and   Shearwater     and  the  men of the Royal  Garrison Ar.  lillery and ..Royal;. ���������Engineers.  As it  is understood  that  tlie    Anir  erican sc/iadron will  be in' northern  -waters     early in May,. there should  lie  little', difficulty in  arranging    for  such a visit.    The commanders       of  Uncle Sam's warships, who ihave biecni  at  Esqtiimalt,  are known  to entertain     the  kindliest  feeling  towards  ���������their naval comrades of His Britanic  Majesty's  vessels  and no doubt through the kindly offices of the lutter,  would be..mos't willing ito join in an'  make the celebration a success.  Thc. idea  of sending  an invitation  ���������has iieen taken up by tbe Tourist association   and   his      worship Mayor  of May celehtatioti will see many a  contest ������f prowess between the naval and military representatives of  the two great, branches of the Anglo  Saxon races that will be well worth  seeing.  It has also been suggested that an  invitation be sent to tne .officer commanding the ���������P.uget Sound department  of the United:,States ..Coast. Detenu.,  service. At ttie. s.evcralt'orts stationed around the..'ehtraince to Ptiget  Sound there is said to lie ample.-material among the soldier boys to  -lphold their arm of the service in  any .10-oared cutter or four-oaredi gig.  race that might be pulled off.  Then,, too,. it "is expected that  the  annual -visit of   the Duke of     ..Con--  naught's own- rifles  (Vancouver, and  ���������New  Westminister), will take place a-  boutthe time of the celebration and  it  is not, at. all  unlikely  that.;     arrangements  can be made for a substantial^ representation  of that crack  interior     eoi'P������������������the1 Rocky .'Mountain  Rangprs���������to visit  the capital  at the  same time. It is pointed  out by one  hit_.li  in  local military circles ^t/hat if  the  matter, is taken up fat an* early  -late there should be ifltle difficulty  'n maluing  arrangements   for the vis-  t of at least two or three companies  of the Rocky'Mountain  Rangers     to  tlie coast.  conclusion, in which case it   is thought lined above,  will be sent 1o Victoria  pro.' fu'.'lc  that the monarchs may meet, for  the approval  by   the authoiities  towards     the end of April   in G" eel: of   the government,  waters,of  the  occasion  of  the  Olvm-  1 iu **"*'��������� SOUTHERN CROSS  COPPER MINING  COMPANY Ltd  NANAIMO  INDIAN ARRESTED  TRANSFER OF  DARCEY ISLAND  In connection with Tuesday evening's affair as reported in tho  Free Pre^s last night whereby an  Indian woman was nearly burned to  death while supposedly under the in-  flucni-c of liq-"or, the provincial Police today made several arrests, says  the Free Press.  . .

The maintenance of  these unfortunates has never been carried out in a  satisfactory  manner.    For  years they  were visited once'in three mantlis only,   when  supplies   were   taken       to  them,  anil   other  needs   were  attended to by the medical health officer 0f  the  city  ami his s'tafT.

When the i������rovihee took  over     tho  lazaretto about a year  ago  the question  of attending  to  the  needs       of  these  Chinese in a more humane way  than  at present was considered,  and  the secretary of the provincial board  of     health   had under  consideration  plans   to  ameliorate  their condition.  These,  however,  have not yet   been  carried  out.    It was found  impossible to remove the survivors to William   Head   quaraltitinestatioii,   which  was one expedient  proposed, and on  the other hand no nurse <*ould be obtained  who would live on  the island  and .minister to the wants of the lepers.

I think he  was the real instigator of the boycott.  "Yuen     Shi Kai,  viceroy of Chili  province, had done all he could .    to  ���������stamp   out   the boycott,   but no  one  can do much when  once public indignation     is aroused  in that country.

It  is  foolish to s^y  the boycott or the reform movement  in     general is weakening.    It would  be more correct to say it is just Beginning.

Even the daintiest linen  or lace, or the most delicate  colors may be safely washed  with Sunlight Soap in the  Sunlight way (follow directions).  Equally good with hard  or soft water.

THE YELLING PERIL  This, yelling peril is the new title  for the street noises which the medii-  cal profession has been protesting  against for a generation or more.  The matter has recently been discus-  -sed by lhe- Lancet in an editorial  which calls attention to the harm  done to tlie sick by avoidable noises  particularly at night. Attention is  called to the pandemonium of sounds  in American cities. Vet it is not al  all certain that this is the main  cause of the ni'voiisncss and dyspepsia wliich are assumed to be so common among Americans, thoug|i ncuroi  ogists recognize it as one cause of  nervous breakdown.

Good  morning!  1 think the fellow with the wallop  is the one to be feared, writes Battling- Nelson, one of the hardest men |  who ever donned a glove. By hiat 1  mean tha pugilist, who wins this victories by the knockout route. This  style of lighter has many advantages  o\er the clevci boxer who invariably  obiains the 'decision at thc end of t  bout for his cleverness.  In tho first place the fighter always  has the boxer on the retreat, who  always has to step backward to get  away while the fighter is steadily  advancing in the natural way and  covers just half the ground.  Tins is one of the main reasons  that thfc so-called clever fellows appear to be so tired after a long battle.  In my 'recent battle with Jimmy  Brill I will ��������� venture 10 say that he  covered at least half, thc ground that  I ,did in hacking away from side to  side. The boxer,, or what is termed  the clover man, has-one advantage  over the lighter���������that is where the  bout is a short one. Send him.tlie  distance and there is just one-ending  the latter will invariably win, just  the same as a thoroughbred when'  you nialich a stake horse with a  sprinter over the Derby route.  To be successful in the. fighting  game \ 011 must be a Tighter, niid ],av.>  a. punch...

On the other hand, alhletics  must play a fat' more imi-ortant part  and is     much more essential than it  can   possibly    be to   any     ordinary  school.
