The statement to that effect results  from the publication in London   papers oL despatches saying the present  action     of the'uLiimatum had been  followed by the,despatch of two'warships.    The officials here are surprised, and   . displeased  at  the  reports  which they construe as tending     to  force the hantL.of France into - more  aggressive'  and    belligerent     policy  than  anything France contemplates.

The genuineness of this message had been doubt-~  ed by some people, and the subject ;  was   thoroughly  discussed   ; by.'.-, the  Council last evening,  and was   eventually explained and settled to    the  satisfaction; of ;all. ,  . Aid. Haworth and a number of his  friends are of the opinion that The  "Ledger should have published full  particulars of the discussion and it  was evident by Mr. Haworth's remarks last night, and mentioned in  the Council report, that that.gentleman feels that full justice has not  been done hini by this paper..  Our reason for not entering more  thoroughly in the case and describing minutely the discussion, was because the affair did not pertain directly to the business of the city and  was, from all* appearances, more of  a disagreements between the Mayor  and Aid. Haworth. The Ledger in  not giving details of the case  , was not by any means doing so to  keep them from the knowledge of the  public, but only for reasons stated  above. *-  As it is obvious that Mr. Haworth wilLjiot'be satisfied unless a  full report is given in these columns  of the affair we, in consideration of  his wishes and* in order that he shall  hot feel that any injustice has been  done him by The Ledger, publish below the exact facts of. the case.

Bryden with the request that he  read questions contained thereon to  tlie Mayor, at the same time asking His .Worship to answer theiri as  they were put.  The firs t ques tion was ,'���������'���������' Did Mr.  Dunsmuir^ send a telegram to you on  Feb. 21st, i and , if so what did he  say?"    -  The. Mayor replied that he had had  no telegram from Mn Dunsmuir on  that day- -."

In answer to' further interrogations, His Worship stated that he  had received a private telegram from  Mr. Yarwood, of Nanaimo,^ informing him of Mr. Dunsmuir's intentions  respecting the closing of the Extension mines should Mr, Hawthornth-  waitie's penalty clausei^to the eight-  hour bill pass. A- message had been  received from Mr. Dunsmuir on that  morning, but the rcccipienl was the  Secretary of;the Board of Trade, not  himself. He,. (Mr. Coiburn) had received a message from Mr. Dunsmuir  on that morning, asking him to come  to the telephone, but by the time  he 'arrived , Mr.- Dunsmuir had left  the phone.  Mr. Haworth then asked if he had  called up Mr. Hunter asking him to  send the message relating to the  closing of tlie mines, to which His*  Worship replied that he had .not. Ho  had endeavored to get Mr. Hunter by  phone, lo ask- him if the information  supplied by Mr. Yarwood was correct so that he might know how to  act in the best interests of the city  but that he had only been able to  get a subordinate official in the company's office; Mr. Hunter not being  there.

C,  March 21.��������� In  calling   upon  President   Castro     for  an answer to his proposition to sub.  mit  to arbitration     the issues    between the United States and Venezuela, Mr,  Bowen     is acting in    accordance     with  specific  instructions  from  the    State Department.       Mr.  Bowen made a proposition of * this  kind  several  months  ago,  and   :li,u*e  was  an exchange of notes    on     *Jie  subject, -but -its further consideration  was ���������cut ..off by the abrupt departure  from the Capitol of President    Castro  at a moment when his own decision was   required.     The  Venezuelan, government had made that country propositions, looking  to the   arbitration of the dispute by the   Ha'-  gue   tribunal,   but   with   the  important  qualification     that  the  tribunal  should      arbitrate  as   a  preliminary  question as to whether or not    the  United  States  government  has     the  right under international law to   intervene at all  between  the Venezuelan  government and   American  C<*i;  cessionaries  for  the protection.  Thu  was construed here as an attempt to  bring into play the old Calvo    Doctrine      which the United SUV-s;- <.ai  resolutely and repeatedly  :ei'j,L.l.    to  accept.        Mr. Bowen    reported  ihe  fact of President Castro's departure  and asked for instructions.  These were prepared with great  'care and after an opinion from Attorney-General Moody that the pio-  ceedings in Venezuela involving the  Asphalt Company's piopcrties were  so irregular as to amount, practically to a denial of justice. Mr. Bowen  was told to renew his proposition for  a free arbitration of the issues at the  first opportunity and this, it appe.irs  he has now done.  SUBSCRIPTION LISTS.

Albany, N.Y., March 21.���������The Senate today passed the bill resulting  from the General Slocum disaster,  which requires the stanchions, deck-  beams and frames of excursion vessels to be of iron or steel. It applies to New York only.  While plowing in his field near Eu-  faula recently Mr. Charles Gibson  uncovered a large number of weapons, some of which were rifles of an  (-���������id style, some blunderbusses, a few  old time pistols and a couple of  swords. All these weapons are in  a fair state of preservation and are  apparently of Spanish make.  According lo Greek tradition, a  party of adventurous Spaniards, num'  bering fifty-four, in the year 1664,  left New Orleans on burros and went  to the territory in search of gold.  They secured all the precious metal  they could carry, and on their way  back they were beset by a band of  Shawnees near Standing Rock, eight  miles east of Eufaula, and a great  battle followed.  The Spaniards, with the exception  of two who escaped on a raft, were  annihilated.  It is supposed that thc weapons  plowed tip on Mr. Gibson's place are  the ones ihat were used by the Spaniards menCniied above.���������Kaosas City.  Journal.  F *".������������������;.

The following desciiption of a  street and village lighting system  by gasoline is not without interest.  Of course, wheie this plant is located, the cost of gasoline is much less  than in British Columbia. Nor is  the system to be compared with electric light, but apparently, it is not  an expensive one to instal.  "One    of     the propositions to    be  voted on Apiil 4 i.s in reganl  to the  establishment of a~ municipal     gasoline gas lighting plant foi   the    village of Oakfield.    As,plans for a village hall and fire engine and a wa.  x ter works and seweiagc system have  been presented in these column's,  the  "Eagle" dejsites     to   thoioughly. in-  foim the voteis of the meiits of the  question^to be decided,  and sunmits  the**"foilo>wing.  "One of the     fust public improve-  ��������� micnts     generally made in an   incorporated village is a-lighting system  for lighting streets     and lights for  private consumers.  There are p.obably three systems  in gcneicl i se 1:1 most cities and vil-  . lages, keiosene, gas or gasoline and  electric lights. Kerosene lampy are  now so antiquated that they aie  rapidly being superseded by modem  systems. Electric lights are undoubtedly the best in every respect,  but that of cost, while gasoline gas  lights are being adopted as the most  piactical foi   small    villages     whcic  ed by walei power.  Mi. W. E   Bnslol, picsident of*he  ing thc streets for the balance     of  the inhabitants.    We  expect  the viJ-  villago_of Oakfield, has such a     ;y������-[lage lo  pay for lighting  the stieels  just as it did undei  the old system,  by taxation.  -..      .._   .. _ ���������      "We started in charging  M 50  per  same system with  the improvements ! 1,000  cubic feet for  gas   lo  private  that have  been   made  since  his   was     ' '   "  tern as the latter in his residence,  and sla'/es that should he evei build  a new   house he would     instal    thc  purchased  fifteen yea.s ago  The villages of Brandon and Fox  Lake have lecenily established gasoline .systems and aie highly pleased  with icsults. Mi-. Geo E. Dickinson, Biandon's village clerk, gives  the following recommendation to  Iheii  plant'  "We paid Wan en & Pettigrew for  installing gas lighting plant, $0,506  and $820.30 for putting in extia gas  mains, lot, met ens, tools, stove, 'etc.  This included eveiything up'to Jan.  1st, that was necessary to xun the  plant, most of which was for meters  and piping to private consumeis. The  total cost was $7,320.30.  "We have 38 lamps, and about 3  miles' of gas mains. We employ one  man and pay him $40 a month. The  system gives extra good satisfaction  It i.s ; not self sustaining', and we  have no-intention of making it such.  We were paying heie about $400 a  year   for   lighting   our  stieets  with  consumeis, but since Jan. 1 have  charged $1.25. Oui plant was star teed in Septembei, 1904. Up to Feb  1, 1905, _wc had paid out foi gasoline $468.03. Up to Febiuaiy 1, 1!I0:>  we had received from pnvate consumers. $332.24. This leaves for ^.u-  oline for"lighting the streets dining  that time $135.79     Besides  this,  we  fiom consumeis was mostly in     the  plant.  "Let any village thinking of installing   a lighting   system   send   a com-  yiittee     down   heie   Let   them   stay  tluough     the evening and see     our  lamps  burning;  sec  our  plant,     talk  with  our   people   who  are  using  the  gas  for  lighting  and  cooking.     Let  them investigate, and I am suie that  tiiey     will     go away  satisfied   that  tins  is   ihe  soil  of  a lighting  plant  foi    the    small  town.    Yours    *>cry  Uuly, G.

Tluough the ignoiancc  of our superintendent we have had a  little trouble two or tluee times and  we ran out of gasoline two or three  times,     but iiside fiom  this, eveiything has  been satisfactory.

They live in huts made oi snow and  ice with such a small doorway  that  the people ha\o to gel down on then  hands  and knees to cieep in.      They  use      foi  food   the  flesh  of  the seal,  ducks,  beais and pails of the wbale.  Theie are no stoves in  these huts,  so what small cooking is done is done  o\er a lamp winch /ills  the hut with  smoke  and  makes  it   feel  veiy  close.  In the lamp is (mini fat, which       is  got      fiuin   the   whale.    For   a wick  Iney use moss        The Eskimos    aie  veiy much kinder* than the Indians.  If the Eskimos see   you coming they  will go out to meet you lake you into  then  huts  and   treat jou  kindly, (  but the Indians will not.  The, Eskimo babies sleep in bags of JJ  featheis      and    sometimes   in   laige  hoods of their mother's     The Eskimo boys ha\e splendid ndes on their  sleighs  pulled  by dogs.
