After' long consideration by the admiralty.the committee  of defence had concluded that    submarine mines were more liable to injure the defenders  than  damage   the  enemy.      He  was   not      alluding to  blockade    mines,     which had played  such an  inipoitant  part in  the   Far-  Eastern' war.    Mr.   Balfour thought  submarine  boats  would  be of great  importance  as  a unit   in   naval   warfare generally and     at least in    attempts   to  land  troops   on  a liostile  coast.     He  believed it  was- impossible to land  foreign troops "in   Great  Britain and  therefore a  serious    invasion need not be contemplated.  Continuing, Mr.  Balfour said   that  the Pacific, on a reconnaissance, io  ascertain if the passage is free of  mines and feasible for Rojestvensky's  squadron, and also to threaten Japanese commerce. All the Russian Laval division now in the Far East  are acting under Rojestvensky's orders.  M.

An invasion of India had been the dreaju of many military leaders.   The progress of   Russia  toward   the Afghanistan frontier  and the construction of the strategic  railroads compelled     the government  to     consider     with    all  seriousness  what     its     great   miWtary  neighbor  could do.   I-f Great Britain.., permitted  the  slow absorbtion  of  Afghanistan  in a way similar to that in which the  Central  Asian states  had  been     absorbed, and if Russia's strategic railroads   were  allowed   to  creep    closer  and closer    to the     frontier,    Great  Britain would certainly bo faced with  the greatest  military    problem     she  had over confronted.  Mr. Balfour remarked that development of Russia towards India had  from time to time caused great  alarm. Great Britain had in vain ,  by diplomatic means endeavored to  prevent Russian expansion, which  now must be taken as an accept;d  fact, Although the invasion of India  was much talked of by Russian olli-  cers, he did not believe that it formed any part of the scheme of flic  Russian government.

It .seems  very  strange  that  men with     large sums of    money at  their cuiiiiiaiwl     can he buncoed with  .such   transparent    schemes  as   those,  for instance ol'    Madam  Humbert, or  of her  later    American-Canadian  follower,  Mrs.  Chad wick,  and yet  these  women secured    large sums of money  fi oui men who were regarded as good  business     men.   It   is  the  history  of  avarice.   Show    a person how he can  get something     for     nothing and he  is  at   once     captive.   Sometimes,   as  n   Ihe     following     description  of  a  French    criminal a     *ast amount of  wok  is dour- by a criminal and great  ingenuity    used.   Of this one the following account is in teres ting.  The 4uidgc of the English Pgris Correal ional' couit in sentencing the  Creek, l.eonidas Choidas, to a year's  imprisonment for the fraudulent issue of hank notes, said to the prisoner. "Yon certainly have shown a  most ingenious mind, Choidas, in  imagining the trick which has brought- you here, and which consisted of  manufacturing bank notes with tlie  fiagnienls of genuine- notes." The  Judge might also have, added that  Cho:da's method wa.s, likewise, an  extremely laborious one. One day,  whilst examining a note tern into  several pieces and which had been  gtimmcJ together again, Choidas discovered that, wilih a given number  of notes, he could manufacture an extra note, lie thereupon invented the  following system. Taking a five  hundred franc note he cut oh" a narrow slip at one end and placed it  aside. Then he took a second 500  franc nolo and cut oil a larger slip  The pai t cut. on the second note, is  larger than in note So. .1, and must  be at once detected by any person to  whom the note wa.s handed.   Choidas  tion. When he reached the twentieth  note he had put into circulation 20  mutilated notes and found himseli  wnh one mutilated note, the twenty-  first* to the  good.  Ol course, this process demanded a  considerable number of notes, and  Choidas' capital was not \ery con-  ,sidi-rable, so that lis illicit, profits  weie lather small. According to his  own coiifissiou, he operated thus on  tweuly-fhe notes of f>00 francs each  and on one hundred and so\euly  r.ole.s of 100 francs each. M. Boulfier,  chief cashier at the Bank of France,  !-;a\e evidence to the effect that up  to dale 182 100-franc notes, 35 100-  I'raiic      notes   and   12   50-franc  notes,  tiian iwo to one. Another axiom of  the Indian military sjsiein is that  tiij artillery should, with the exception oi a lew mountain batteries, be  Lritisii. Both these, limitations  cramp the power of expansion; but,  civili/.cd as India is becoming, Lord  Kitchener still has good recruiting  grounds and the Sikhs, Ghoorkas, Pa-  ihans, Punjabi, 31bha,minedans, and  Drocrjis, properly trained ami well  led, will hold their own with any  any fighting men in the world. Lord  Kit.'hcnei has also splendid material  for irregular cavalry in the warrior  c- s e of Riiiputana, and endless .supply for irregular infantry as he  draws near tho country of the frontier.

In this connection mention may be  made of the    possibility of using hydraulic transportation     for the spoil  of Cull bra cut.    If it should     prove  possible to lay    on a large supply of,  water at    any     reasanable cost, the  material     excavated    by the shovels  may lie     carried  by pipe line direct,  from     a hopper alongside tlie shovel  and carried to the lower valleys and  ground  within     reach.- The carrying  capacity    of pipe    lines of hydraulic  dredges has already 1-cen touched up- Made to order and Repaired at short notice  on, and in this case'tlie oneralion wayS gives satisfaction  would be, aided. by, gravity.

He says lie, finally got away in  the excitement attending a lire in the  house.  The young   man said he wa.s Charles Dickinson,  twenty years old, and  'that-he was brought up iii Bar'liadoes  British   West     Indies.   One day last  spring he  was strolling on the beach  at dusk, he said, when lie was seized  by four sailors, who bound and gagged him,  threw'him into a boat and  look him out to a ressel, which looked like a schooner,    \U-it whose naime  he never learned.   He was put in the  hold and kept     there during! the voyage.   He alleged     that he was^then  sold to a man   whose name he never  heard, and whom he always addressed as  "master",   He says he had no  opportunity to learn in what part of  the city the house    was.   He had to  chop     wood, make    fires and do all  kinds of drudgery,     and ^at night the  master tied one end of a rope about  his waist and  the other around himself.  Dickinson says     he escaped several  days ago.   lie wandered about the city for several days, and then decided  to. set   out for     iVewburg," as he remembered  having     heard  his  parents  talk of an uncle who lived there. He  was on his way,, when he was piekc-  ed up at a trolley station hy a policeman.   He     was     taken before .ludgc  Simpson,  who, after hearing his story,  discharged   him.   When  last seen  Dickinson was     walking in the dircc- '  tion of    Newherg.   The     young man  had     evidently     suffered much hardship.

This   will   be   hard  fought,,as  lIk-re is very'tense feeling  between   the   two   teams,   and      l/Oth  will Iry hard rta win oui.    The team  lliht  is   lo  represeu't   New  Westminster,   although   it   has   not been   -'ili-  cially stated,..will be. practically  (he  same as     has  worn  the Royal  Cily  colois in   the last  two or  iliree seasons.   It  is  quite likely   lhat  the old  warhoise   Choyne  will  not  play,  but  wuh this exception, all the old players are expected  to be out. The learn  to  represent   New  Westminster    this  season   will   very   probably   be       S.  Gray,   W.   Gray,' Gal brail h,   T.   Gilford,  Rennie, "Biscuits" Pccle. Turn-  bull, Latham, W.  Gilford, Lynch, Od-  dy and  Bryson.    This will' make      a  v:*ry     strong  team,   and  Vancouver  will   have   lo  do   their   very best     if  they  win.  The Terminal  City      team  will he a'ithoul   (lie services of Yor'/o  who   has   joined   Seal tie,   but      Van- j  coJiver      has  plenty  io  choose  from  and  will   be able  to hold   their own  with   the  best.    Joe  Reynolds       has  consented   to   play again,  nnd  it     is  likely   that   Ban'  will' do I lie  same.  They  will  be  a big hell   lo  the    defense,     In .goal they .will have Teddy  ''amphel!,-w'no  is claimed  to be      a  dandy.
