It appears that Henderson, accompanied by a deck-hand named Simpson, had leave to go ashore last  evening and they were returning  about 12 o'clock to their ship , by  way of the bunkers. Both men are  supposed to have been the worse for  liquor, and Henderson must have  staggered over the bunker, which  was completely empty, and he fell a  distance of fully 30 fee liking the  iron bottom  with his        a.  His      companion   did   not sec  his  fall,  and although he missed, him, he  made no report  on  board  ship;      in  fact he did not return to the ship at  all last night, passing  the night   on  shore, although he does not     know  where.       The  absence  of   two   men  from the ship throughout the entire '  night     naturally  caused  alarm- and  this      morning  a seai'ch   was   made.  Simpson' was ��������� found, walking     about  the wharf, and he told the searchers  that Henderson had  probably  fallen  into a chute, but he was unable     to  STOESSEL  PORT ARTBUR'S'CIV  IL GOVERNOR IN  TERVEIWED,  STOESSEL     SHOULD  HAVE HELD OUT  LONGER  (Associated Press Despatches.)

Consequently     des  riient that 1 have conferred with M.  Delcasse at his residence is false and  calculated to confuse a situation  which is perfectly plain. There is no.  representative of Japan authorized  at this time to discuss peace, or foreshadow irr the slightest whit, cohdi-  patches appearing in America saying   tions the Japanese government'might  that Foreign  Minister Delcasse and  Dr:  Motono,   the  Japanese  minister  of France, have been conferring     at  the former's house relative  to peace  is inaccurate.   The foregoing view of  the situation is taken by the parties  immediately concerned and it is    asserted with the authority of the foreign office and thc Japanese legation.  The   Associated   Press  correspondent  has talked lengthily with Doctor Motono during  thc last few days, and  the situation heretofore set forth in  these despatches  reflected  the  view  of     Dr. Motono and others direii'.Iy  concerned,   although   with  the  usual  casual  reservation of not using   ,u ..  names.    However,  in  view  of     ,o:;-  tinued  reports that  there were indications  that Minister Delcasse     nvd  Dr.     Motono  were taking an active  part in the negotiations, the correspondent of the Associated Press called  at  the  Japanese  legation  today,  consider if the negotiations reached  a practical stage, on the contrary  Japan is now engaged in conducting  an active military campaign and she  will resolutely proceed in that work'  It can be added that the introduction of the foregoing despatch as  well as the portion quoted was submitted to Dr. Montono, who- approv-  ved every word.

A thorough-search was then' made and resulted ..in the discovery of the cook  at thc bottom of one of ihe bunkers  quite dead.  The wharf officials immediately  despatched a messenger for thc police, and Constable Cassidy was soon  on the scene. In removing the body  of the dead seaman Simpson offered  his assistance, and in doing so slipped  through" the bunker and knocking his  head on the car rails below, causing  a nasty wound. He was removed to  the ship and properly attended to.  Henderson's body was carried to  the sack shell near the bufffier and  the doctor sent for. Dr* Frost made  an examination and found that thc  exposure of the dead body to the  rain and cold through the night had  stiffened the sinews of the neck, so,  without holding a post-mortem, it is  impossible to give the definite cause  of death, but apparently it was fracture  of the spinal  cord.  The deceased  was a man  33 years  of age and had been on the ship Mel-  anope  since  the  25tfi  of May,   1904.  He was  not  married,   was   a native  of  Edinburg,   Scotland,  and  was   a  scout in the .South African war. He  held medals for active scrvif-     He  was a general favorite on    the ship,  and      his  mess-mates  feel  his  loss  keenly.

At a late hour this, afternoon it is learned that Simpson,  the injured man, is getting on well.  TO EXTEND LINES.

The   Japanese   thereby   secure  a firm      friend,     who,  at 11k*  same  time, will make it a point of honor  to  bring negotiations  to a successful  close,  and who  therefore would    not  be  likely  to have accepted   the  difficult post of mediator if the Japanese  intended   to  present  exhorbitant  demands."

At   the same  time those   least inclined to cavil at  Ihe  German   ��������� Emperor's action, admit that he is     calculated to stitlcn  the Sultan's     resistance   to France'  policy in Morocco, and so retard the  civilizing scheme involved in the Anglo-French agreement.   In this light,  the    usually     moderate "Telegraph"  says"  that   the     Emperor's visit to  an  unfriendly act.  Other papers are inclined to doubt  tha wisdom of Emperor William's  policy, which they think is more lik-  ly to- result in strengthening the Anglo French entente. Much satisfaction  therefore is expressed at thc exchange of visits which is -baing arranged for the French and British  fleets, during; the coming summer.  The initiative in this demonstratiob  of friendship- is said to have been ta-  ken by the British Government, and  in Paris it soems to be hoped that  the visit of the British squadron to  Brest, of Coburg, will be the occasion also of a visit of King Edward  or some member of the royal family  to Paris. Nothing, howe\cr. has  been definitely arranged for in the  matter.  London, March 31���������The Associated  Press learns at the foreign office today that Chancellor Von Buelow's  nourrcemcrrt in thc Reichstag ysster-  day of Germany's policy toward Morocco came as a complete surprise to  the British government. It was believed, as had been generally declared, that Emperor William's visit  to Tangicrs was without political  significance.  When the Anglo-Frence entente was  concluded in 1904, France officially  informed Germany of the fact,  and also of agreement betwesn herself and Spain signed six montyhs later whereby France, was given a  mandate to regulate the affairs of  Morocco.  Reforms  iu    Morocco were imperatively   nec3ssary    for the good of all  powers interested in the country and  as a concert   of powers had provided  so difficult an undertaking in Turkey  China and     elsewhere,    where it had  been    tried it   was thc opinion of the  British    Government that one power  alone could    best exercise     pressure  upon     the     situation    of     Morocco.  Franco     being     far the deepest concerned financially    and commercially,  naturally was ��������� given the mandate to  constitute     reforms.   As    the     open  door was guaranteed and equal commercial     rights     ensured to all the  countries    concerned, and it was said  at the foreign     office that it is difficult to understand here what can be  Germany's  motive.   The  German  attitude, it is     lwlieved, will certainly  make the Sultan     of Morocco def-ant  of the French, and caysc him to persist in his old     time conduct, which  will be    destructive or trade and endanger life.  railway, and in no case can the'land  betaxed,,as Dunsmuir will not allow  the deal to go through unless the  matter is made     beyond question so  night, the, ������...    ������ th. tstimate   llt^Zl^ViX^" "*������  being  continued.

I  Of all the statesmen of the Vicloi-I  ian era, Frederick, Lord Uuflcrin, ba- '  ron bv inheritance, carl by favor and .  mBr,,uis by uiw.l. should least ol all |  lack his inspired bard. 1-or his life is  a long record of s..ch harm and goodness that even his great public services pale befoie the beauty of Ins pn  vale chaiaclei. Especially is it desirable that his life story should be  told by one having authority, in thirl  its close was not amid that calm serenity uhich mortals, judging by  their own standards, would award to  tlie good and faithful servants, but  amid storms of soriow and misfoi-  liiiic. Tf Sir Alfred Lyall can scarcely claim to he the inspired hard, the  biography is inspired by true love  and veneration for its subject.  Lord Duller in stands out as an instance of the success in life which has  so often in our history followed upon the education of the ordinary, un*-  di-dimjiiishcil Etonian and Oxford  pass man I'oin lo assume thc duties of a landlord and legislator,  from his early youth he realized ln's ;  responsibilities, and learned to take  lhcm seriously. llis mother, a giand ,  daughter of Richard P.rindsley Shen-  dim, the statesman and playwright,  possessed in full measure the beauty  and talents of her family, both of  which she transmitted to, her only  child. Lord DulTcrin So young was  she at nis birth that to the end of ,  his life lie well remembered her coming of age.  Thc touching letters from mother  loson and son to mother" which Sir  Alfred Lyall quotes form some of the  most charmiiio- portions oT this hook.  They demonstrate not only the deep  malernal and filial affection hut ajso  a true friendship, perhaps chic to the  comparative nearness of their ages,  which it is much more raie to find  Oxford was succeeded first of all by  ii period of residence on his Irish estates, marked hy arr attempt to play  lhc agrarian reformer-, and afterward  by a period of residence in London,  during which young- Lord Duli'erin  gavehiniseif up for a time to the  distractions of society. The following record of a day is amusing.   .  "Saw Thackery shaving!. Brcak-  fastsd with the Bishop of Oxford!  Went clown to the House of Lords to  hear him speak, and was turned out  ofthe gallery by the usher. Talked for  some time with Gladstone. Had my  head examined and. was told that I  had ir0 political ambitions. Talked to  Shaman Crawford about tenant  right. Took a lesson in reel dancing."  Lord'Duflerin's entrance into public  life found him'first of all holding minor offices in successive Liberal administrations, including, if it may so.  be termed, the Coalition Ministry jf  Lord Aberdeen���������that of the Crimean  War. His great natural gifts of diplomatic tact and courtesy, however,  marked him for the paths of diplomacy, and his first chance in the career in which he afterwards distinguished himself when he .was appointed British representative on the  International Commission on Syrian  almii's in 1S59. His conduct o'f the  business was a brilliant, success, and  his personal popularity so great that  at his departure the French Commissioner, to whom he had been in constant opposition, kissed him on holh  checks.  The novernor-GeneralsHip of Canada followed in IS'72, nnd here agnin  Lord -"if-'c-rin distinguished himself as  none r-f bis - prcclrr-rssors had done.

In connection with the mineral developments of the Island, it must be  understood that only during the past  five years has any attempt at metal  mining been ma.de on a large scale.  On the west coast of the Island,.beginning at East Sook, mineral has  been found and small shipments  made' from San Juan, Port Renfrew, i  Alberni, Uchueklesit, Clayoquoit, j  Kennedy Lake, Taferno Inlet, (Dee*  Creek), Bedweel Sound, (Bear River) j Trout River; Clayoquoit Sound,  Sidney Inlet, Ahousett, Ahatlasett,  Nootka, Kyuquot: and Quatsino,  while in the middle of the Island at  Central lake a large deposit of mineral has recently been discovered.  The schist beds lying to the south  of the coal measures and commonly  known as the Mt. Sicker schist belt,  extends from Mt. Sicker up to the  Nanaimo Lakes which, has been opened and worked at seven points, a  distance of 40 miles: Namely, -M%.  Sicker, Mt. Brenton, Chemainus, Ma-  Rhinehardt,      Nanaimo Lakes,  in all parts of the Island,  geese, , pheasants,  grouse and quail  are to bs found in season in    numbers that gladden the heart of    the  hunter..    With .the development   tliat  will  result .from  the  extension     of  the lines of the B. & N.     Railway,  North Vancouver Island will increase.  its wealth many fold.   Alines  will be  opened and other natural sources   of  wealth     now valueless,     will,  with  transportation,- soon prove to      the  world that as a whole there is    no  other part of the rich Province     of  British Columbia     that  can     equal  Vancouver Island.

First among the natural    re-  lources are tho great coal measures  [and Englishmans River. Owing to  the fact that the land, is heavily  timbered, prospecting is necessarily  slow and expensive, great importance must be attached to the cutting of trails inland from the railroad. As the result of such a trail,  three years ago, from Ladysmith 6  miles out, several mineral locations  have been made in that vicinity, including the Majuba, and extending  west to the Rhinehardt and Nanai-  Lakes property. It would appear  to be oi the first importance to cut  trails in order to open up the country to the .prospector.

'J he sturdy boot of cowhide, the  pride and comfort of our New England', grandfathers,' ���������> is disappearing  from shop and, store. It may still be  seen here and there upon the farm  but it has no place upon the polished  pai'lorfloor , nor in the trolley or cab  of the'city.  Theboot     came to    the rocky New  England shores     with the Pilgrims.  It broke the brush of the virgin forests for the hardy     pioneers, and it  trod down the     seed of many-a har-  vestupori the homesteads.  . Glover's   men, of' Marblehead, ma'r-  thed off to follow Washington in '76,  wearing     high  fishing    boots,   shiny  with oil from    thc cod and salt from  the    spray    of thc ssa.   Whitier, the  Quaker poet,      hammered upon thic-.  boots fo the   measure of his rhymes,  and Henry   .Wilson, "the Nattik cob-  Ijlcjr,"    pondered upon     questions  of  .state   as he     pulled his good waxed  ends taut,     and    dreamed    of future  greatness.  Walt Whitman tucked his''trousers  legs inside his high hoots and went  out and 'made' friends with the'boatmen and clam diggers,. Politicians  donned' boots that betokened toil at  election time, just as the ollice-scek-  ji- of today puts On "a glad smile and  puts out a glad hand. A clergyman  of high fame attributed early successes to his high boots, which he wore  in his pulpit so that, his coiigrega-  ti-onwould feel that he was one of  them. _ lr'--^-^  Even from rouah mining camps**;  and the trail and the ranch of the  west, the boot is disappearing. College bovs struck western camps with  heads full of-"idea's and feet la-red in  'high ankle boots, like the s-orm boot  seen in Boston today.

And    hunters  and  cowboys     and ranchmen learned  the same thing too.  -So the sturdy     boot .of cowhide is  passing and     civilisation is nitrching  onward in lighter and mure scientific  lootwear.���������Boston  Globe.
