In  order to   get   them   out af the   difficulty, Prince- Okhtomsky hoisted on  board the Fercsyiet the signal, "Fol-  Tow me."     By that time it was   already duck;  and,  as  during the   en.  gagement all the    yards and    masts  had been smashed,     signals had , to  be     made by hand.

He described (hc  excellent, effects of the American exclusion law on this dass of immigrants and disclaimed airy anti-Semitic tendency on the part of the  British  government.  Premier Balfour pointed out the  moderation of the bill, which he  maintained did not interfere with  the right of asylum as it , was understood by their forefathers and expressly prouded that poverty alone  -should  not exclude aliens.  Hc said  tho question of alien    immigration  was  wholly distinct from  the  Jewish question as it appeared  on the continent.   He agreed that the  United   States  had  shown  a remarkable power of absorbing- men ot different nationalities and turning them  all   into   American  citizens;   but  the  absorbing   power   had   limits.

Claims are' marked by_ two legal
posts, one at each end,, bearing notices. Entry must be obtained within ten miles of mining Recorder's office. One extra day allowed for each
additional ten miles or * fraction.
Tho person or company staking a
claim must hald a free miner's osrti-

Thc discoverer of a new mine is entitled to a claim of 1,000 feet in

distributed   among   peasants, individual  htn-dholders,   . merchants, nobles,
and urban     electors.   In 301 district
assemblies,  with  18,190- members,  38
per cent, were peasants, 35 per cent,
nobles, 15 per "cent.     merchants, and
the     remainder     officials or priests.
The     provincial   , asserhblies or zein-
stvos; have over J200 memu'ers, :n all,
and they   operate chiefly through executive committees,  of which the nobles constitute     far the larger part.
The mir -deals 'with the land,, farming
arid   the  immediate      local' concerns.
The  district assembly,   which; corresponds'more nearly      with' our county
organization,'       looks     after    roads,
schools,    sanitary     matters aiid like
questions.   Tlreprovincial
The provincial      assemblies  have the
care of prisons,     hospitals',"charities
main roads, mutual insurance and other subjects of     more than iocal interest.   The,   zemstvos    were among1
the reforms  instituted' by the liberal
and-enlightened'    emperor,  Alexander
IL.   They were     created  in 1864 and
sprang- from  a commission  appointed
for the purpose   -of J.'conferring more
unity arid "independence on the iocal
economic administratiob.'.' -    Theoretically they     went  far  toward establishing a system .   of local autonomy,
iH't practically they have been largely nullified   by the over-ruling power
of the     provincial.     governors,  who
stand for'.the'bureaucracy..'  Their au-
"ihority and     independence have from
lime  to time been curtailed.   Nevertheless,  in their' form as local representative assemblies, even with their
limited     electorate     and scope, they
furnish the basis and nucleus, for wilier representative institutions. Their
liberal    spirit    'and"independent purpose-'have-been' the. most characteristic features in the new reform movement.    .   ��� ���;      ",.'.'���'."'

BRAVE RESCUER;;i)RqWNED  Thc.story of a bargeman!s heroic  attempt to save a lad's life, was told  ..t an; iiiiiiest -a,t- Earl Barton's on  dames John Vauglian, -bargeman, .and  ������.olin Coley, a youtli, who were  drowned in the river None, Two  -, arges, one behind the other, were  l-t-.ing towed by the Devil's Elbow, be-  Iv,can WeUingboroirgh and Northam-  |.ton. Vauglian was driving the horse  pi llin-j them. Coley was at the til���������  L r of the hindmost t;arge, and'while  r.i.shing the boat-from-the bank overbalanced and . fell info the water.  Vauglian ran back at once, and, diving deep, Drought Coley up en his  lire"-, the youth's arms being tightly elapsed arcynd his neck: Vauglian  struggled-to reach the barge po'e,  but while thc-boats-were ceing got  round, both disappeared. When the  bodies were recovered, Coley's an- s  were still clashed tightly around the  man's neck. The bargeman at the.  oth<*r filler could not- swim. Mrs.  I'Vaiighan, who was in the first barge,  suv loll' '.er hi-sbr.n-'' and her brother- dn..._ Accidental death, was  lhe ve-dict, the-jury" adding a rider,  that lifebuoys should be. kept on each  barge. .  DISCUSS  SUNDAY GAMES  Herald���������At   the  police commissioners'   meeting   last  evening   there was  practically no'business to attend to.  Minutes  were  rsad and  adopted  and  the chief's report was road, showing  that nine cases had' been heard in the  city  police court during  April     and  that $23 had  been collected in fines.  This also was received and filed   and  there the business came to a standstill.    Mayer Planla, however,     had  something to say, and'as,he himself  put it, he took advantage of thc opportunity  offered  by   the  laxity      of  business before the commissioners to  give  it  public  expression.    He    was  sorry   to  learn��������� through   thc  newspapers that there was going to be    a  game of baseball Sunday.  He    was  sorry personally,  as lie legiuded    it  as quite, unnecessary   innovation,    as  the ci iy has been in the past    comparatively free from Sunday games.  Of course,   he  recognized  that      the  commissioners had no jurisdiction in  the matter and lie believed in allowing people to spend Sunday as they  liked,  be'     I1211  they chose to spend  il  in  away   that  was'not  agreeable  to a large number of   the people    in  the    city,     it seemed  time to fake  some steps to prevent it.   He understood   that   the   reason ��������� given       for  having .these games on Sunday    was  that they had no other time to play,.  but   be  was confident  that if those  who were intctcstcd in these games  wished  to make  time  they could  do  so.   -A strong  objection to    Sunday  games    was  that it took away thc  liberty oi some on that day and made  them work when they would not otherwise have to.   Of course, in     this  case, it was only one or two, but he  regarded  it as  the thin edge of the  wedge, and it-would go from Sunday  games to Sunday excursions, and jf  there was, Z&v instance, ,a special excursion   tiain   from  Ladysmith       to  Nanaimo, it would require the whole  train crew to work, when they tagtild  jollierwisif have  tlieir  regular  day  of  rest.    Another  strong objection      to  Sunday sports  was  that it deprived  many persons who would like to   attend  from  the pleasure oi going   on  account of" their feeling against Sunday games.    Hc himself, disapproved  of  it    entirely.   He  believed   that *  hail a bad moral effect and he would  like  to  sec  the citizens cf Nanaimo  disapprove of it.   He  was ready    to  let .individuals   spend   their   Sunday  as they pleased, but when, they banded  together  for tlie , purpose of turning it into a day of sportj he thought,  it   was Trigli dime  .something      was  done.   That was iiis view of it,   and  any person who ,knew him knew that  lie was gather, broad-minded-<, , .   .    ,  Commissioner Dick also made a few-  remark's >along��������� the. same line-..; lie,en  dorscd  all   that   Commissioner  Plan-  la had1 said and .believed it/would be  quite  possible for ihe  players  to arrange to play   their  games-, on  some  other day.. Where he came from,  in  the Old  Country;  they  always found  time to play  their games during tlr*e  week..   He thought it  might be done  on Saturday, as the practice of Sunday games  was introducing into Nanaimo something that  was not     at  all     desirable.    He  understood,     of  conrse,  that  these games were played outside the city limits and there-  lore the commissioners had no jurisdiction.  Commissioner Moult had nothing  to say. He knew the reason why the  games were played on Sunday. When  the mines did not work 011 Saturday  afternoon there were no Sunday  games on  the cricket field.
