 LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY.  The Ladysmith  AILY  NOV 7 - lflfi5      ^  o*  CTOR?A^  DQER  VOL.2,  MONDAY. NOV.

Harrison's   report   says,   urulcr date  of Nov. 2nd:���������Since the S.S. Sonoma  left Mils     poit,  there has  been  but  one coal arrival from Australia. ,viz.,  Clair Graham, 2,330 tons.    There arc  three      sailing  vessels,  one steamer,  all coal carriers,   which are fully due  to arrive this month here.   There arc  on the- chartered list from Newcastle  N.S.W.,      to   load   coal,   23   vessels.  ���������with a carrying capacity of      abvr'ut  ���������18,000 tons.    The Clan  Graham  lias  been  thc only   vessel, to   deliver ( ol-  onial coal here in October, )The same  month last year there were nine vessels,      which   delivered   23,710   tons.  This shows a very pronounced -shrinkage this, year.    The arrival  of coal  from all sources for  the month   - of  , October  this year  is 28,052 tons less  than in October ,1904.   There are Inn  --Very small stocks  of  Australian'grades now here iir yard; still thi re appears to bono change in the asking  prices for the little that is here,    although the fall demand is now. beginning;  and,  to   make good  thc denoit,  throe steamers  have   been  chartered  to bring Newcastle coal, which should  arrive here during Uie month.    New  steamer   engjaigcments   have   recently  '"been  made for  the  transportation of,  .British  Columbia  fuel  to  this  port.  "These,      with  shipments  from 'other  coast ports,  will supply nearly     all  imnrcdialtc requirements for our winter-trade.    Harmony   prevails > again  among tire  Nanaimo coal  miners and  the output promises to be materially  augmented,   h reign I rates from     the  .Colonies  are quoted   at  an. advance,  making   Australian   products       cost  somewhat' higher.    The  output       of  fuel oil  is not decreasing,  and . there  is no     perceptible change  irr values,  although      producers  arci demandirrg  higher prices.  1 SUCCESS!

PROSECUTION ���������.  DROPS CHARGE  DOUBTS  LORD  MJNTO'S   CAPACITY  Among the visitors to the city yesterday, says the Winnipeg Free Press  was Cornelius E. Cardcvv, of Kan-  goon, Burma, India. Mr. Cardcvv is  locomotive arrd carriage superinften-  dent of thc Burma railway. He is  traveling with his wife and, has already been six inon.lhs on the journey.  ���������Seen by    a reporter   yesterday    at  the Carono, Mr. Cardew,  in response  to a question, said  that,he was some  what out of touch on Indian  politics,  having   been  absent  on his tour    for  so  long    a time.    "However," /     he  went; on,  "I may say that generally  the Brit sir population  of'iirdia     appreciated Lord  Cur/.oir,  the late viceroy.   Personally, 1 do not know anything about his successor,  Lord Min-  to,   your   late   governor-general,    but  he   must be considerable oE  a statesman to fill Lord  Ourzon's place.  The  position  of viceroy  of India is altogether    different from  the  governor-  generalship of Canada.   The ,latlcr position may be filled  well enough   by  any man   of station  and  respectability,  but to discharge,  thc  largely    administrative duties  of the former    re-  fliuires statesmanship  ami  mental calibre,   of no mean      order.    However,  Lord Min-to may achieve success     in  his   new   position,   although   it seems  hard to believe that he cair adequately fill Lord Curzou's  place."  Asked   as to   the   character   of the  Burmese country, Mr.   Cardew     said  that it was a tropical  country,     and  life was  not pleasant  there  for  people, born in northern latitudes.     The  northern born  population was but   a  sprinkling among  thc natives,  but on  them     depended tire government and  the .industrial  development.  The principal  product   of  the country  according to Mr. Cardcvv,  vvas rice. It was  grown  in  great  abundance  and  with  valuable      tropical   timber   made  up  most of  the freight carried  by   ��������� the  Burma  railway.    This  road   was now  several hundred  miles  in length   and  was an important adjunct to the territory,  Mr. Cardew said  that he had never  been  in Canada   previously.   The  climate,      he said,   was   certainly  very  different   from  that  of Burma,       and  had     a bracing  effect.    He  thought,  however,       that      the   winters   here  [  would  be very  severe.    When   told'by |  the      reporter   that   many   who  had (  passed  twenty  or more  winters      in  Manitoba were still very much alive,  he was    mildly  surprised.  While   coming   across   the   prairies,  Mr.  Cardew sard he> had  seen an insane woman being  taken to the asy-  Jum by the authorities.   He had been  he   Intermezzo   from   Loraine's    Sa- singer  steamers   operating   at  night  lomc-                                       ���������                   ' down   the    Strait   of   Fuca  and  to  Mr.   Jacobs   Sang,   as  usual,   well.

Persons  have gone to Andarko to learn the  extent of the damage.     It "is reported  short  distance  beyond   the   Parson's  Bridge station,  when some of      the  cars      near "the middle  of the  Ir.iin  left      the  track.      The cars   swayed  arrd toppled over tbe bank irr debjris,  s.xtec-h of them- piling up at the bottom   of   the embankment.   All    were  loaded, six of the wrecked cars being  through      C.P.R.   freight  cars   with  merchandise for Victoria.  It is believed the >accident was  caused by the spreading of a rail,  but this has rrot been determined-  None of the tra'n crew were injured. "When the cars had rolled over  the bank the locomotive and several  cars at the front of the train, as  well as the end cars, remained on  the  tjack.  The train  had  been flagged at Parsons  bridge  and  the brakoman     who  was on the middle of the  train1 went  forward  to   the engine to inquire why  :he  flagging had been done.   To  this  he  owes  his  life.    Had he  remained  in       his' place irr   the middle   ot  the  lorrg   train   he  would,   without doubt,  have been  killed.    The train        was  Hearing  Stewarts,   a curve  (ixe  miles  'rjrm   the e.lty,  between air avenue  of  lii"h trees.   It was running slow, not  the  conductor   says.

The     death    of Frederick   I-Ier-bert.  Cook, son of Mr.  and Mrs. Fredcr'.ck  Co^ik,  of the  Five   Acre-Lots, occurred  at the hospital yesterday '��������� mora- -,  inj;  (Saturday)  at .3.  a.m., "of appen-.  dicitis, after a brief illness.    The de-  eeas������"-'l had been complaining  for the���������';  past two months,   but it was     only!  during the last two weeks .that mat-.;  t-ers   look a  turn   for the   worse,; iie'> j  ess i to. tin a;  the calling "in  of a'doctori  on  Friday,  who at- once ordered the j  patient removed .to the hospital.  ������������������ There everything  was   done     .that  ���������was- 'possible  to -save his  V'fe   without  avail.  "Herbert," as he was known to all  the boys, was well Mod. by all who  had ' the .pleasure of his acquaintance,  and his sudden demise "in the spring of  manhood will come asta surprise     to  of whom arc men of immen.se Irtatue,  and some of whom arc cannibals, says  'a London   paper.    Roughly  speaking.,  it will, start from the j junction of the  ��������� Sobat     and  Bahr  El Gha/el rivers,  and   swelching on  both  sides  of the  Nile,, will extend to the northern border of Uganda and the northeast corner of the Congo Free State.     Running      along-   the northern      part of  Lake     Rudolf it will  include      the  south-western boundary  of  Abysinia.  The     region  is largely  one  of  sudd  and  swamo,  being intersected hy the  Upper Nile, which will, form theorptiir  cipal   route  of communication.     The  mission  will  link up  Egypt and  Uganda.    The first party, consisting of  six  missionaries, will leave Marseilles on Oct. 18, and hope *o reach the  scene of thetr  labors  by  Christmas.  They   . take     provisions for  twelve  months, and expect- to live for a con-  si deraible  period in  boats and tents.  At Cairo, after conferring with Lord  I Cromer,, they  will proceed to Khar-  , toum,  whence they  will  travel      b'y  'saving   boats  for about   1,100   miles  j up  the White     Nile.    In addition  to  the clergy,  the party includes a doctor  of  Poplar Infirmary,  a carpenter  from one of the County  Council Tech  meal Schools, and an-agricultural-expert.    It  is intended  at   first  to commence industrial work among thepa-  jgans,  and ��������� in time teach them       the  ! manufacture   of  bricks.    It   isl hoped  'that a second party-will be dispatch^  !cd from England in-, July, and a third  next autumn.   The district to which  i ihcy     go   is one for  which  General  Gordon  made an appeal for missionaries ,over  30 years ago.  in il.

A TIN  merely "harnessed up,**  without disturbing her, and he and  biddy made a .series of calls. The  Host on Herald offers this true story  of the town of Amcshury, which owns  a small  fire apparatus:  Outside the fire limits is a small  community- that, 0n petition, received  an appropriation for the purchase of  a "hand tubi" It was installed in  ur an abandoned blacksmith shop,  where it remained for two years  ed only for decorative  street parades.  Last summer a stroke of lightning  started a lire in - a farmhouse near  rallied at once, hut when they arrived  hy.

The     railway companies Jn Liverpool  have  found  a certain  cure     for  inebriety'.    They have  arranged       to  run outward.trains for drunkards, Uie  night  of the  bank-  holiday,   but     to  their great  surprise  there were     no  drunkards,      consequently no special  trains  were required.  "The premature publication of our  intcnt'.'pns," explained a railway official, "ruined our-.plans. The regular  topers, who before could be relied-  upon to travel home drunk, have <beerv  shamed into sobriety. The idea of  being placed in a compartment with  the other drunkards disgusted them,  consequently they resolved tokeep sober. ;L consider we have done more  for the cause .of temperance than any.
