If the Nanaimo peopie would  there be  anyone  present, who would  ��������� care-to ask. any questions he  would  '   be pleased to answer  them.     There  . was , practically no. local business  that he could discuss. The matter  that' was attracting most interest at  present, upon which, he could speak,  was that of the road, to the public  '-wharf.-   A few -days  previously.. .  he  "   had.    , wrnttcn , a letter-  in   the locai  newspaperstating what be knew of  the situation. -No definite action to  get  a road hud  been  taken  by     the  govc.nmcnt up to thc present,       Ire-  cause of the absence of the chief   of  the Lands     and  Works  Department,  Mr.      Green.    When   that  gentleman  was  away  the other officials  of  the  department      were     very much  clams, .and     he     (the speaker) had  found it impossible to get any information as to  the course that the Department would  probably    pursue to  get   thc  right of way   to   the  wharf.  However,.Mr. Green had now returned and something delirritc might     be  heard any day.He thought it .possible  that -the Department' would tunnel under the /railway bracks to mako  a road to the structure, hut personally1 he thought the road could be taken   over   the place  where itwas   orif  gLnally intended  it should go.    This  could  be done if the right machinery;  was set in motion.   The machinery to  do this    ;was the Lands and Works  Department,'"and. if the officials       of  that department did, thieir^ duty- there  should) be  no further   delay   irr get.  ting  the road    . in shape.   .However,  the  matter  would have  to. he.      arranged by the Department--.and-,   the  Wellington  Colliery  Company,       and  no doubt sooner or later it would be  arranged   to' the statifaction ol both  parties.       This   was   the   only  local  matter     he had to deal with.     Respecting the "attitude of^the Socialist  members  in  the House,/he could say  that  they  had  practically  speaking,  held   the     position  of  opportunist's.  During the last campaign they    had  spoken to the electors  but little upon the  principal   of  Socialism,     but  had  merely stated  what  they intended   doing   for   local    affairs.    Iir   the  House,   to  carry   out   their   promises   he had  been employed   iir  their constituents and do     their:  He said he would speak of the various objections   that were made to it  1 by some people and would endeavor  'to make a   reply .to these objections.  Socialists,      he     continued,   wanted  in their  ranis  men who at fi'.st   had   ,,,1C  -system, and  to use thc streets of  The Mayor and Aldi' Bcthunc  were present when the scheme was  discussed briefly.  "We  are    ready tospend  a million  doliois in   Vancouver in the installation  of  a plant,"  said   Mr.   Armcnt.  "The system   is  altogether  different  from anything you have here at the  present time- We are asking for    no  concessions in  the way of, exemption  from    taxation or anything  iu  that  nature.    What wc want is a franchise  permission     to come here and start  some objection to thc doctrine, for  such men, when their objections had  been overcome  bv other  members   of  the city  for our  uiidei'gr,ouud  cables.

He rather enjoyed   a  little criticism  on his  principals,  etc.,  and .was always  willing to   wrangle  on the subject,- but he thought people we're.going_ too far .when they,'began   to  d:g  into  the  private  affairs  of Parker,   Williams.   There was/a  certain .individual in  Ladysmith who  had  been taking a lively   interest i in  had joined  Uiem.     To become a Socialist   was   to   take  asenous  step,  and one  should  consider  deeply     before he  took  if.    To   hc  a Socialist  needed   much  courage  in  the  Slates,  and lie believed  it  was the same   in  British   Columbia.   Often   did       men  lose their jobs   because or  their principals,   but  he would, venture  to  predict that  in  years  to come  it would  need-considerable,courage   to. be anything else  but  a Socialist,  so rapidly; was the power of  the organization  growing,   it  also rehired- brains    to  be a Socialist,   and  brainy  men. only  were needed in      the ranks.  It needed no, brains to  Infa Liberal  or Cou-  scrvaliAe.  After  conti ruling in this strain for  some    time he went on to say that  one objection   made  against   Social-  Iris,'-themember's, affairs, and     had  expressed      himself  as being-   certain tlie     United   States   the  average  that,   he had     done not a scrap, of    '^vaSc' c^'������cd  by a worKiingman  was  work for the past three years,  that  J*1'"10'Per day, ami  that man  produc-  he was' in debt up to his eyes,     and ,e<i ?l������ worth of wealth.

Enquiry made  with   the object     of  chartering the British steamer   Carlisle, now in harbor at Saigon-, Cochin  China,   has  brought  to light     an  interest ing   story   regarding  the   de-  lemma     in which the  vessel is  now  placed.   The  Carlisle   is one of     the  contrabandist steamers which ran the  blocl aJe of   the  Japanese oiT    Port  Arthur   twice   with   a cargo   of   guns  and   ammunition   valued   at   $1,500,-  0011, but failed to land the cargo. The  war is over, and   the cargo is still on  l.o.ud  thc Carlisle and  likely  to re-  mam there until  twelve months'char  ter money is paid.  'ihe Carlisle, 130-3 tons, with Capt.  Jessen in command, left Vladivostok  iir December of last jear with a cargo of guns and ammunition taken  from the Vladivostok defences to  strengthen the then beleaguered fortress of Port Arthur if they could  be run through the cordon of Japanese  warships  which  held  the sea  oil"  anese the  United States authorities  at Manila sent a cruiser of the '   inland squadron to San Miguel bay. aad  the derelict was conveyed to Manu   ���������  where she was held.   Captain  Jessen  went     ashore and arranged  for  the  necessary repairs, .keeping nsts spread  out about his .vessel  and  watchmen  ever alert.   He was  apprehensive of  further  attacks   of  patriots,   and,   in  the  meantime/a  new   propellor   was  made and fitted.   The steamer lay at  anchor in Manila bay and  the     war  dragged  its course.  Then Captain Jessen read in a Manila newspaper that Admiral Itojest-  vensky had eluded the waiting Japanese and passed through the Straits  of Mallacca in vi_w. of the people of  Singapore with his fieet from the.

Because of the attacks of the Jap-  maiircd month after month at Saigon  with a valuable  cargo  in her     hold.  She was at Saigon in May and     was  there when  the  last mail  left      the  Frtncli   port     in   China.   Meanwhile,  the   bin 'for. demurrage is  piling up,  but   as  long as  the cargo remains on  hoard   the owners  have  all  tire security necessary  to  see.     that      their;  claims are met.    Otherwise 1'hey may  have guns and ammunition enough to.  stock a fortress.  On arrival  at   Saigon  Captain  Jes-  scii  telegraphed   to  thc  Russian  government      at  St.   Petersburg  asking  what disposition  was  to bemadt ot  the cargo  oT munitions.    The  battle  of   Zsusln'ma   was   fought  meanwhile  and   the. Russian admiralty had lost  an   interest in  war  munitions;  Kuro-  patkin  had   been   decisively   defeated  at Mukden  and  Rojestvcnsky at Tsu-  shshiiua.    The     Russian   government  was   then  too occupied  to send word  to  Captain  Jessen.    The  owners     of  tire Carlisle,  Saivenscn  and  Company  cf Leith, were queried   by cable,  and  they did  not want  the guns  landed.  Before    that   was done they wished  the  Russian government to settle for  the   time charter.    The   Carlisle was  on   a monthly  time charter,  and tiM  money had not been paid* ,  % ������__^^HI������  mtm  __  >l I M II  ItajgW  DAILY LBDGBR  THE DAILY LEDGFR  published   every  day except Sunday  BY       THE       DAILY       LEDGER  COMPANY.

That there  are diamond dealers who are not reputable goes without sajing, but if  they bought this stone they would  buy  it with the   idea of culling it.  Large diamonds  are ' not   so numerous   that  they  cannot   be kept fack  of.    When   a largo  diamond   '.&  found  it sooner, or later  finds  its  way     to  the greatest diamond  market  in the  world,      which   is  London.    Persons  through     whose hands a large .stone  passes are careful to note its   good  points   -as     well as its  defects, it it  has   any.  Every diamond  over   ten karats  is  eoinidercd    a large  one  and  worthy  of particular note.   Every dealer who  handles    such a stone can   give      a  minute   description,  of it.    The   purer  the, stone the more attention it attracts  from.- the  persons  who   handle  it.   That is why  it is hard  to    dispose  of stolen  diamonds  of any   account,  for when one is  stolen evfcty  dealer    throughout   the world  hears  within a reasonable time its owners  can bid good-bye to it, for it will  probably be disposed of without trouble in the Orient, India, Persia,  and Turkey are the three countries  where large diamonds can be sold  without cutting them  up.
