He remarked that to a  great extent the success of the celebrations were due thcamount of subscriptions taken in, and pointed out  that withoirJ>liberalsupport from the  younger 'men in the mines the same  would be small.

Kaien    island  is  a short  distance  souWi    of     Port  Simpson    Several  years ago when Port Simpson     was  looked' upon   as  a probable   terminus  of) a railway a reserve was put   upon  the   Tsimphean   peninsula  by       the  government      of  the day,   of  which  Forbes Vernon was chief commissioner.   Mr.  Vernon himself says     that  he put the reserve on thern  because  there were rivul applicants  attempting to stake off the teiritoiy.     He  considered it was the wises thing to  do :in the interests of the people, and  accordinjg|y**lid so. lie also says tjiat  Kaien island  was then, included     in  that reserve.   Tliens was no channel  marked, and  what is now shown as  an" island appeared on the map     -as  part of the peninsula.  For about a year  past tl������3ie     has  been  an  impression   prevailing   that  tlie  island might  become a terminus  of the transcontinental  road and    a  number of locations were attempted.  The present government,  in. order to  avoid  any  possibility  of  a  mistake",  placed  a reserve upon   Kaien  island.  Litigation       followed  in some      instances,  but  without  avail.   An  excellent  harbor  exists  at  this  point:  it ,is  reported,  and  as   the  channel  from the mainland is dry at low water,  there can be no difficulty       in  crossing. *  It is believed that an arrangement  exists with' the provincial govern-"'  ment by which 10,000 acres are to'Ik;  handed $ver to the company at $1.00  an acre. The province also retains  its rights under the present land act  to claim one-fourth of the town-site  which is laid out.

St.   Petersburg,   May   25.���������Admiral  Avclan, head of the Russian admiralty department, confirms the Associated Press despatches saying Vice Admiral Rojestvensky is steaming north  to give battle to Admiral Togo.  He  considers  it possible that the news  to the effect that the two fleets have  met may   be  icccived any  day.    Admiral  Avellan   re-affirms   the  official  denial     of  the repoi I   that  Admiral  Rojestvetisky has  broken down     and  asked lo be relieved.    Avellan     says  Rojestvensky sent detailed reports/of  the condition of his own heaJth and  of .   the health of the crews of his  ships..  The     constant tension     and  hard  work of the past months have been a  'Do  you      anticipate  a  sea  fight  soon?." the Admiral  was asked.    He  replied:     "Certainly.    The Japanese  cannot.afford    to allow Rojestvensky  to reach Vladivostock without an engagement.   I personally expact ft will  take place in the near future,      although  I admit the admiralty knows  nothing   of   Rojestvensky's   strategy  or plans, the Emperor having accorded him complete fnvi'om  of action."  In   response Ho   asu^-i'slim   11.at  Togo migghi  intentionally alkiv/ Rojestvensky   to   get   to   VlaJivostoek,  continuing  his   torpedo   boat   attack  wliile the Russians are on  (he way  and then  bottle  Rojestvensky up   in  Vladivostock,   A'dmiial   Avellan smiled and said the slory of I oit Arthur  will not be reprealeil.  "Rojestvensky  will try to wicst   the mastery      of  the sea from Togo.   There aie many  ways  of  compelling  Togo   to  accept  battle." Rojestvensky "will  only  have  to  bombard  one  of the coast cities  to force Togo to" appear in defence."  Admiral Avellan   repudiated   the report that a number of chartered colliers sen!  to Vladivostock were cap-  lured by the Japanese owing to the  connivance of their captains, wh0 arranged to receive half the price     of  the cargoes fbr betraying their route  and time of departure.   The Admiral  explains  that the  colliers  were   lost  through delay in the receipt of orders  telegraphed to them by the Admiral  Indian Ocean. The writer says the  hard work fell on the light cruisers  and,torpedo boat destroyers, under a  vice admiral, which were constantly  scouting ahead and communicating  the appionch of, vessels.. Considerable difficulty was experienced at  times in coaling from the transports  at sea, especially in the casei of torpedo  boat destroyers.  Admiral      Biriloli  left  St.  Petersburg today by special .train for Vlad  ivostock.  All  other  trams  will     he  side-tiacked   in   older   lo   enable    his  train  to get   to   Vladnostock quickly.   The Admiral'expects to make a  record   trip   in   older   to  reach     his  post      before   Rojestvensky   ai rives.  Several  train   loads  of-coal   are  on  their way  to Vladivostock.

The  exact  location  of the  yacht was latitude  '10.21,   longitude  55.12.   . When  sighted   by.  th-i   lluversham   Grange,  she   had   two  gall'   topsails  of equal  height, and an immense spinnaker set.  The.  spinnaker had  a peculiar  square  with  triangle top.    Some  time after  she came  into  sight  of  the  steamer  she  took in her topsails.   They were  quickly  reset- as soon -as  the squall  passed,  however,   and   with   the  fair  wind   which  prevailed  she continued  due east at a-great speed.    It is believed from   the description given the  unknown yacht sighted  was  the German schooner Hamburg,  which     had  not been -sighted since May 18, when  her  est advertiser in the world.

At the same time it  Isn't wise to purchase things In such  large quantity that the members of the  family are forced to slug a parody on  the old song, "Beef for breakfast, beef  for dinner and cold roast beei" for tea"  Cold roast  meat  Is nice occasionally  and is much to be preferred if one is  given a  choice  between it and some  elaborute concoction which means the  same cold meat spiced past recognition '  but still   bearing  the  label of  being  made over.

Jn  the vear  possession  of   the  local  1891  it was  won   by   the  Nanaimo Rangers     and  h������lcl   by  them  for  tince  years,  after  which it  passed into  tlie hands of the  Victoria  Wanderers.    In   1S!)7       the  Nanaijkao players ajj.fcin^jol hold of it  and held  it  for one year.

We have  not had long .to wait'for an explanation.   He has come here to  "settle"  the "Iroubie" between the:operators.  Dunsmuir-Stockctt et al,  and     the  miners over  the eight-hour law. This  is-the first indication I have had \hat  any      trouble     existed.   The miners  I ave  not been  notified, so  far as    1  am'aware, that the Island companies  do not intend  to operate  under the  law,   nor  that  they  require   a settlement,  . Mr. Smith assists the companies toy  breaking  it   to   the public  for  them,  ihal  tiicy do not intend lo grant the  men common justice, they  must have  their     full pound of fleth.   In other  words, Jihcy  require a "settlement."  Let me inform him and  the operator behind him  that there is no settlement  to be made.   The eight-hour  law is "clumsy and inconsistent" according to this great authority, who  made himself the laughing stock     of  the House Hf Commons hy his clumsy  and  inconsistent  eP'orts  to have enacted a cortsMii Union Labor Bill1, Ihe  solitary duckling of his "eight" year  political  incubation.  Thai   eight-hour law   for coal  minors is just as  "clumsy and .inconsistent!' that neither labor skinners nor'  labor skates can  find a legal  way to  peat it,  hence  the necessity  of     a  "settlement,"     and   .Ralph Smith's  presence here.     The coal miners     of  British Columbia, unlike Smith,     i .���������  ihe eight-hour question, and have n>  desire  to straddle the fence upon it.  They  have for years demanded      an  eight-hour, day  fiom hank  lo  bank,  and they J have secured it without any  ,id from  the famous "mineis'     agent,"  who is so anxious to he in at  the sett lenient'.  Some of  (lie  miners  have  a  vivid'  recollection of his" "own eight-hour re-  ���������ord  and  settlements therewith,  and  Jso other settlements,   The last one  io made between  the men and     the  ���������ompany lost them ten per cent,    of  'heir wages.  An eight-hour law for c.uartz minis     was    enacted a few years ago-  .In n  Smith  was in fft* local House.

Perhaps the most ingenious and the  most original of all schemes for procuring autographs was f;rom a lady in  a western town. She was. raising funds  for the building nnd support of a public  library, and she had conceived the idea  of issuing a volume to be called "The  Authors' Recipe Book." Authors from  all over the country, the most distin-  guishfd of niilhors���������always authors  with a capital A���������had been good enough  to send her a list of the favorite dishes  of their own construction; with their  method of making them.  The cookbook was one of the many  forms of literature to which tho recipient hud never turned bis attention. ITe  had no more idea of cooking than'he  had of milking ii cow or of harnessing  n horse or of 'selling a hen or of building a dynamo, lie did nol even care  what was cooked for him so long as it  contained none of ,the ingredients of  tripe and none of the essence of toina-  lo. But he was asked to contribute a'  paper, which she would .have reproduced in facsimile, stating what he-  could prepare most to his ��������� liking upon'  a kitchen range or <in' achaflng dish,s  with his manner of procedure. This  quite nonplused him until he-bethought  himself of one particular and peculiar,  delicacy in the evolution 'of which he  could safely trust his reputation as an  expert. In reply, for which he received  no thanks, he said:  . "Take a long paper cutter: attach to  tne same by moans of rubber bands,  and seeiu-ely, an ink eraser; insert the  ink eraser firmly into a mnrshmallow  plug and hold the same over a student's  .lamp or study fire until the mnrshmallow begins to slzz, drops into the ashes,  puts out Jhe light or burns your baud.
