This v.as   the text on  which  Prcni/M'      Balfour   based   his speech  concern nug    -tlie.     relations ������1 Great  Britain with foreign countries at. thc  "Lord  Mayor's banquet  in   thc Ciuil.l  Hall  tonight, an  occasion when cir-  _cumstai.ee  makes   it Imperative     for  cither the     Premier  of  lhe Foreign  Secretary  to  discuss the  foru'lt,!!  or  domestic politics  of the  government.  Mr.  Balfour and  Whitelaw Reid,  the  American  ambassador,   who  replied  to thes toast of "Their  Excelcncies,  the  Foreign  ministers,"   proposd  Ly  the Lord Mayor, vied w/ith each otli-  .er in speaking pleasant  -words     for  their respective countries  as leaders  among the   .dvocates of  the arbitration of quarrels throughout tlie civilized world.    .  The whole     tenor of the spcoches  was optimistic on  the relations' between  all,    tilic  great  powers.    The  Premier's  reference  to  Russia     was  ---particularly   happy.    He  snid:  ''Our friends in Russia are absorbing public interest by the .great move  ment they arc making in  the direction  as.  we  believe���������self-government.  The task thc Emperor and his advisors is  indeed  not  a light  one. There  is      not  a citizen   in   Great  Britain,  who doss not wish them success. We  hope the movement will  bring happiness   to  countless   missions unsullied  ���������by a repitition of painful and horrible  events     which made the initial progress so  lamentable."*  The  banquet  was  conducted   with  all the quaint ceremonial peculiar to  the occasion.    The  guests  of.  Lord  - Mayor Morgan included  the retiring  Lord  Mayor  Sir  John round, many  of the-foreign ministers   anil cabinet  officers.   o ���������  Some years ago the .government of  Java offered a reward for all crocodiles killed or captured.- For a time  enormous numbers of them were  brought to the authorities. Then it  was' discovered that nearly all the  natives had gone to raising crocodiles, so the reward was withdrawn.  REDUCED  TG^THE RANKS  Washington,   Nov.   10.���������|fhc secre-  . tary of the. United States navy,   Mr.  Bonaparte, stated today that the recent      occurrence   at   the   Annapolis  Academy, resulting in the (bath   of  Midshipman.Branch,   would be thoroughly investigated,  but that at present no further orders  would be is-,  , sued.   ���������-,.''..'������������������'  Admiral Sands, the superintendent  at the Naval Academy, telegraphed  Secretary Bonaparte that Fitch and  Noyes, of the Cadet Battalion, had  been reduced to the ranks for participation in the unfortunate affair in  which young Branch lost his life.. The  regulations provide for an immediate  investigation of the -affair by a court  of inquiry, but is is thought .the President will probably recommend thc  trial hy court martial, not of the  survivor of the prixc-r-lng, but of the  time-keepers of both parties.   ���������o *   CHARGED  WITH ROBBERY  Italy    /'redeemed," in its present  v sad * political  condition,   is a warning  i  lo  the revolutionary party in   Russia,  says Mr.  Federica  Paltrinicri in  the Rassegna    Nazionale (Florence).  The Russian people, argues Mr.  Pal-  lr|:')iiieri,  are  not ripe for revolution ���������  any. more than the Italian pedple'hf-  ty years ago; the Russian leaders of  revolt are indisputably  inferior      to  those  who ledJthe  Italian upraising,  and the Russian people have so sunk  in servitude  and have so long* borne  the' yoke of tyranny  that it is    too  late  lo call   them   to  liberty.     Even  the      Italian    revolutionary  leaders  scarcely  considered   what  they  were  doing.   "A   fatal  blindness  prevented  these invincibles, noble and generous  as  they  were,  from seeing the   real  condition  of  things."  Vain, he goes-  on  to .say,  is any   revolution  which  i.s not based  upon the intelligent and  moral  aspirations of-the masses.   It-;  alians  ha\ e  not been  bettered       by  their cij_jigc of government. ' He gives the reasons for this as'follows:  "Even cwhen  the  redemption        of  Italy had  been accomplished,  the Italian   people "remained  what       they"  were     before���������the  masses  impulsive  and ignorant, the ruling classes  cynical,   corrupt,   immoral.   Every   revolutionary movement is vain unless it  has been preepded by a long, patient  and  tedious work of moral and civil  education.    We may denounce as  infamous     the arrogance tind tyranny,  the corruption.,'of Russian absolutism  but as long, as thc Russian people remain what they are, the same infamous abuses will continue,  masked,, it  may.  ice,  but even more destructive  in substance." <  ,  The   writer   points  to   the  present  condition of Italy In confirmation  of  this  statement - and declares:  "Italy  once  had  a despotic  government;'today  she is ruled on a democratic basis���������yet what  is hsr condition?      We  see the most  vital departments  -of  the public administration badly     directed;  all are tending  to disorganization; justice is prevertedf the offices    of     the state are made instruments of'corruption, arid are frequent  ly bestowed upon the most ^mwor-thy  virtue is ostracised when it'' is    riot  actually treated as criminal;  dishonesty, on the other hand, is so fan exalted  that  the most abandoned  are  raised to apotheosis by popular vote.  All this has come upon Italy renovated  under the inspiration  of democratic  ideas-"  If such be the case in Italy, a  country :tn so many ways so favored,  what will happen in degraded Russia if a premature infusion of Democratic rouse the people to rebellion?  He answers the question in the following  terms:  "The promoters of.the spurious democracy     who     have always railed  agaitist insincerity and pretenc.., ;, '.*  planting    beak and rtalons in the vitals      of   the  vast. Russian  people,  moreH primitive and  ignorant     even  than   the Italians,  and in  the     end  Russia will have an autocracy  more  dangerous than eyer,  bacause it -'.will  be based on a broader  foundation, favored  by a larger number of adherents,  and craftily administered with  the assistance of those most potent,  most  *��������� misleading  instruments,   the  great* newspapers of the day, and the  parliamentary  form, of- government."

There will be no  opposition to speak  of when  the  first  legislature  of  Alberta     convenes, for out of twenty-  five seats  the  Liberals  have  already  secured     twenty and have a fighting  chance for two more,  while of     the  other, three  one is .ep resented   by    a  Labor member.

Stories are going the rounds today  of a thrilling adventure with a l>ack  of wol-.'cs of a young member of a  survey parly which returned loi town  yesterday after ten days, in tlie  woods.    The young man  is said     to  have strayed from the rest of the  parly, when he was suddenly attacked by live savage animals.

E. Ryno, as one of the men     implicated in the Great Northern" hold- j  up on  October 2.   The arrest.      was  made at McBride's  home,   and     was  ordered  qy Chief of  Police  Bennett,  of Ballard, to whom ��������� Detective Ryno  had outlined his case.  Alleged indiscreet remarks made by  McBride yesterday led to his arrest.  Ryno had been keeping the bridge  carpenter under surveillance for some  time, suspecting him of being connected with the holdup or having i a  knowledge of the gang that robbed  ���������the overland train just .north .( 1 al-  l������rd.  wall  of tin? mine.   Suit was entered  for  damages   and  proved   successful.  An appeal  was  taken,  however,    on  the  ground  that  the  jury's   verdict  was  perver.se  and  in  opposition     to  the evidence.    It  was contended that  the  learned judge should  have  taken  the case from tho jury,, so very clear  ly had  it  been  proved  that  the   deceased had  not taken the most ordinary precautions.   The learned judges  however,    after     hearing arguments  which  lasted all  yesterday  and  this  morning,   arr.'r.-ed  at  a decision   without apparent hesitation  and  dismissed     the appeal  out  of hand.  From  their   utterances  in  giving  judgment  it was  evident that  :hev considered  the fact that  the motor was  travelling   through   the  mine   without      a  headlight a very  important  factor  in  causing the fatality.  without interest, to women who  study medicine in Germany and Austria.

Worsted cloths are loss often adulterated than woolens and are more easily  detected. A cotton worsted is a lie on  the face of it, for tbe cotton stands out  with prominence. But often a cotton  thread is twisted with a worsted  (bread, and to defera-ino its presence  it is only necessary to take the twist  out of the thread and then examine its  component'parts.  Cotton, having; a Ions staple, can be  carded and combed wilh wool to b6  spun into worsted yarn. This is dono  to cheapen the cost of production. Cotton is carded nnd spun with wool and  shoddy, not so much to cheapen tlio  yarn, for col ton is generally as expensive as some shoddies, but is introduced to Rive strength or spinning  Dualities lo the stock.

That Ia Wroii_-ht by Careless Handling-.  I have Bold suns for ten years, and  in that time four of them have had  their barrel* bulged, one by snow, one  by dirt, on* by sand and one by something else getting into It    One man  crawling through a fence got a little  .snow in the muzzle.   He could not remove it with his finger, so concluded  to wait and shoot it out, which he did,  but he found a bulge like.a pullet's egg  ������n the end of the barrel.   Another got  some earth in the muzzle and shot it  oat, and be, too, found the same kind  of a bulge en the end of bis gun.   Another fired his gun at ducks, which  knocked him over on his back and fairly gofaway from him.   When he picked up the gun be found a narrow raised  band around tbe barrel fourteen inches  from the muzzle.   In this case a wad  had probably lodged there.   This customer thinks the manufacturers ought  to give him a Dew set of barrels.   I tell  him if the barrels had not been good  ones It would have been a burst instead of a bulge, which might have  maimed or killed him.   Another man lying on a point brought down a duck with j  a broken wing which scurried for the  ���������water.    The man ran and struck the !  duck with the muzzle of ihe gun and j  in so doing got sand In it    He blew '  most of it out and shot out the rest of j  It    Well, after that shot he found a ���������  little blister two inches from the mue-  _le about the size of a man's little fin- !  ger. i  Moral.���������Do not shoot obstructions of  ���������ny kind out of your gun if you value  your life or giiu.���������Uncle Dan in Amu-  tsw- arMwrainaR-  "Therc are no land mammals, properly so called, within the Antarctic-  circle.

Abundance   of   amusing   and   statistical  proof of  the approach   of such  an  era of  universal  telephony  as  is  implied in 20 per cent,  development  is not hard ,to find.

Not only  has  it  annihilated  time      and   space  on   the  superficial  earth,   but  the  Norwegian  fishermen  drop  into thc ocean depths     a   line  with  telephonic attachment by   which  the swish  of thc approaching herring  codfish  or  mackerel is  communicated  to   the anxious  listeners  above.     In  some of the most delicate operations  of      hospital  surgery   the   telephone  proves helpful, and in ordinary medical practice   the country  mother  rises   lhe baby,   to  the transmitter    in  order that the physician in thc     village  may  determine whether or  not  the  cough   iS'croupy.    Concerts  have  been   transmitted nioro or  less     successfully over .the wires, and Sunday  morning  preaching effectively  conveyed.    After a recent revival,  in  which  scores of eager  "seekers"  had   put in  their  request for  prayers,   lhe  evangelist handed his secretary  a  list of  names   with  their  telephone  numbers  and  with  the instruct ion.'  "Just call  up each one, of these sisters and ���������'broth  ers tomorrow morning, and ask them  how  it goes  with their souls.
