Increasingly closer  relations      between     England       and  France- had already been a very significant i>licnoni3a resulting from  the  war.     The Count declared  that Germany      could have no  other  feeling  than satisfaction at finding her northern    .rival     becoming     gradually  weakened  by   the war, and would rec  'ogni/.c   thc   foolishness  of  antagonizing  Japan   if Germany  could  main-  lain and  develop her interests in the  Far  East.    Okuma, saw  no occasion  for   inter vent ion   unh-ss   a   European  conference could  be formed and      he  could not understand who would tal.i"  the initiative so long as  Germany's  policy of ''get the best and as'much  as possible" existed.  Count Kato, former minister of  foreign affairs, .and former minister  to Great ISritain, discussing the  same .question, said: "I do not  think there will arise any occasion  for intervention. I doubt if Russia  has a fixed piuiposc and aim, either  to fight or to conclude peace.        It  -*seems   to  me  lhat  the ultimate result  is left with whatever the future  may bring io Russia, and there   now  seems   to   be  no    prearranged   plan.  Should Russia be determined to hold  Vladivostock, it would be to her advantage  to conclude peace before she  loses  it.     But she slipws  no, desire  foi peace, and 'her policy is ulevoid of  'any'definite plan, so there can be no  occasion for a third power to .attempt intervention'in the near future. Even the less of Vladivostock  might     not  prompt Russia  to seek  armistice, and when the negotiations  are opened  we shall  require Russia  to return Manchuria to China, recognize our suzerainty over Korea, cede  Sakhalin to us,   remove permanently  the    fortifications     of Vladivostock,  and pay an 'indemnity of at least two  billion yen'(1,000,10 ),000.)  Such liberal terms will afford no occasion for*  intervention.   The scene of hostilities  in  Manchuria  being  without  special  'iu(orest to the powers, none of them  will be prompted to take action'   to  stop thc war.    On the contrary, the  war is affording a lucrative trade to  I some of (hem in-supplying materials  for war.    Looked at from a diplomatic view-point, Germany, seeing   her  eastern  danger  lessened  bj1; the war,  and  Russia gradually weakened, will  naturally  entertain, the  hope  of further reduction of the strength''of her  formidable  neighbor.    England     will  feci, satisfaction over the blows dealt  by her ally to her nati&nal foe. The  United States,  much as she sympathizes with us, will not welcome  an  extensive development of Japan's powers, lest it should cause future tro-  ���������iible and would not view with disfavor   (he giadual   weakening of  both  combatants.  "France alone must-be since-'dy-  desirous of seeing the war. terminate  but single handed she can.do nothing  to cause any change. Both thc present and future, to iny mind and  view, afford no sign of the possibility of in tor ven tion, and I am prepared to say that the time has not yet  come to talk of peace-..;. Jnfact, there  nevcrwill he an occasion for interven  tion, and  the war will.last long."  Chicago, Ills,, May 22.���������The)spreading     of thc teamsters' strike began  promptly     today.   Thirty-six teamsters employed by the Ritten, Ross  & Embree Company, lumber dealers,  and  four by Edward  Hines  Lumber  Company, were the first to. be forced  into the struggle.  Through the threatened spread of  the strike to all lumber dealers, every branch of the building industry  in Chicago was today .apparently facing paralysis.

The     Vancouver    Island  collieries  mined   1,02.'.,01.',  tons of.coal,    which  was disposed oF as follows:  Tons.  Sold  as  coal        781,16!)  Used  by  company    135,034  Used   to   make  coke         81,1'70  Added   to slock     22,040  I    si  1,023,01-3  The    coke   from' Vancouver  Island  collieries   produced  amounted   to   19,-  371 tons,   of  which  12,031  tons were  sold and   6,017   tons  were added    to  stock.  Of the coal  sold 53 per o-Mit.  was  exported, to the United States, practically   all   lo   California;   while    20  per cent,  of  the coke sold found   the  same market.    The local market   is  slow of growth, so  the export market must be looked  to for any      expansion of business.    In 1902,  75 per  cent, of Vancouver  Island coal  went  sold of 32,791  is already known  of the coniipetition  of the California fuel oil.  The two companies have "pooled*'  their California sales  under one selling agent,  which should steady  the  trade.  Tiie local coast market in 1901.con  sinned some 13,000 -tons more coal,  hut about 9,010 Ions less coke, than  in iiio preceding year.  The Crows Nest Pass Coal Co., at  its three collieries, Michel, Coal  Creek and Carbonado, minod in 1904  002,(>85 tons of coal, of which there  was sold M coal 287*108 flons, and of  this 108,980 tons was consumed in  Canada, and H'8,188 tons exported to  the United States. Of the remainder  of the output, 21,017 tons were consumed by the operations of the company and 350,000 tons Uronverted into  coke, of which there was .produced  218,857, tons, and of this 119,004  tons was consumed by British Columbia smelters and 97,090 tons exported to the United States.  The distano3 of  these  mines  from  the coast has a.s yet .prevented     any  but the. interior markets being available, and as  three .new coal companies  have   this   past  year   l.ogun  shipping from mines just outside oi British Columbia,  in Alberta,  thcSe com  panics have   shared   the   market with  the C.N.P. Coal Co., with the result  that   these   Briti.*.li   Columbia   mines  show     this  year a decrease in  coal  tons,   which  is,  bow  ed today, hung the employment      of  one hundred thousand men, millyard,  factory  and     construction  workers.  The same programme was seemingly  in store for the sU'iisworkers and thej  industries dependent upon them.   The  planning mills, the sash and     door  factories,  the box factories, and kindred plants would also face, soon, a  shortage    of  lumber supplies  which  will necessitate the closing down of  the different mills and factories.

The  'victory of Vedas in the two thousand.'  'guineas has naturally brought to him  a large amount of public support, but  even this has not resulted in his becoming as good a favorite as eitheV  Cicero or tlie better of the French  stable. Of the latter Val D'Or has  'displaced his companion, Jardy, in  the betting, and there is little to  choose from between Val D'Or and  Cicero, though the victory of the  ! latter in the Newmarket stakes, in,  j which Langibly and Signorino ran  second and third, will undoubtedly,  for the present, keep him a favorite  in the quotations. It is very probable, however, that as the day of tho  race grows near, the weight of  French money will make the choice  of Monsieur Blanc's pair favorite.  Both Llangibly anil Signorino have  been running very consistently  spring, and it would  not be at  New York, May  22.���������During  coming  week the first  of three  golf championships  will  begin'  Great  Britain,   and  the  events  will  be watched with peculiar interest''by  American  golfers.    The   great  amateur     competition     will   start  this  week on  the Prestwick links.  Walter  J.

If  the  American contestants       are  scarce    this   i-ear     in   the amateur,  event,  the women have more     than  made up for it by entering in large  numbers, more than ever before,     in  Ohe womens'     amatuer championship  of  Great   Britain,   which   will  begin  on IVlay   29,     on   the Royal  Cromar  links, near London.

The third and last of the  big events will lie the open championship,   which  will   be  played   on     the  historic St.  Andrew link,  on June 7  and   8.

Under the above head the A>shcroft  Journal says (of course it refers  to  the   Prentice  case,  as  Prentice   lives  in that section):  "In regard to the Journal's silence  today about the recent miserable act  of an intoxicated man, the explanation is that our course is dictaled by  respect for those most eleeply injured. An adjournment has been granted for eight days at the request '���������ol  the defence. The Journal's future  course in this matter will tbe governed by reasons which suggested its  |action today,"  The case against Druggist Reed and  Mrs.    Woodruffe is  attracting much  attention.  The woman was arrested  in  thc rooms  of a prominent music  teacher, and the husband, a railroad  man, has begun action for a divorce.  Yesterday's despatches from Vancouver say:     In the case of John Reed,  the druggist charged  with conspiring  to procure  an abortion  on Mrs.'   Ar-  nott Woodruffe, the police magistrate  has fixed bail at $2,500 in two securities,  but  up  to a late hour     last  night he had not been released.     So  far  as  could   be ascertained   no  bail  had    been     set in the case of Mrs.  Woodruffe.  Nl <  \)  tasSssSfJsatJt^ss  9K9K  MS!

As was  noted    in  a recent (issue,   Swanson's  friends  profess  to  have any  amount  of money  to put up  on  their man,  but  Johnston  and   his   backers     are  lying i'ow".      Yesterday Mr. J. Baker  intimated to- the Herald that if   the  Swanson's had any money to put up  on  the match  they knew where they  could find   him, and lie was prepared  to back his man   lo  the limit.  "At present," he continued, "we  are ��������� too busy to bother hunting up  men who profess to-'he anxious to get  some money on tlw match. We are  working steadily to get Johnston in.  to the best kind of condition, and  Swanson will be one of the most surprised men in Nanaimo when , he  finds what he is up against."  From     that it would appear that  there is likely  to  he moneyt in cvi  denee when  the match is called and  ihc backers of each man come logeth  -er.    -  I '  * ���������  INVESTIGATION OF BEEF  INDUSTRY   ADJOURNED.
