IMPORTING TURPENTINE  WOOD FROM AUSTRALIA  A despatch from Vancouver says:  The Dominion Government has determined to test the teredo-resisting  uuaii tics of Australian., turpentine  wood for piling on, government wharves in British Columbia waters. An  order for some pitts was given some  months ago, and the first,consignment has just reached Vancouver by  the steamship Miowera. Other shipments, some for the government and  some for private parties, are to follow before   thc end  of the vear.-  During  the     performance of  "Ben  Ilur"      (being  presented   in   Seattle  this  week) at Spokane,  one of   the  horses of the chariot race refused  to  run,  but the stage mechanics saw to  it that the hoise won anyhow.  pen'tine pile reared -its head above the  scene of    desolation as    sound as the  'day on,    which  it was driven.

TIIE     COUNCIL'S PLANS  ���������".that course    the Council  will  take  now that the electric light by-law has  been defeated,  is     not yet made public.      It is     a disappointment to   at  least several of the members that the  law was   not     ratified.    The  general  - opinion seems to be that tire sole and  only  reason     of the defeat was a fear  on the part of many of  the taxpayers  that water     would rrot hc decided on  as the. power, and the belief ig general  lhat    there is  plenty  of water available for furnishing power '" His properly     conserved.       Tins seems from  all laleieporis  to be a fact.     Yesterday a well known resident was up at  the fa"s,  and     states that  there is a  perfect torrent     ot water, enough to  furnish    thousands     or  horse   power,  running over four-foot   fans.      One  of  the aldermen stated last evening that  he should     urge  on     the  Council  at  once to    secure water rights, light-of  way,      etc.,    ami  get     everything  in  shape for  the introduction of another  by-iaw.     one     which win specifically  set. forth the fact  that water and not  steam w n be used.  Another member   of the  aldernianic  board  thought     it might be arranged  for an     of     the members to visit the  creek and  sec for themselves   thc amount of    water,     thc fan, chances of  reservoiring, and the chances for turn  irrg in     "McLeort's  creek.        -Had   the  Council     met last "Monday night  and  Col.  Tracey's     le'ttcr as published in  connection with the Council report o'  last evening been made public it might  have given a   different  turn  to .proceedings.     While     thc Ledger regrets  that  the voters could not have taken  it for     granted      that    the   aldermen  would     ha\e installed a water power-  plant if at an possible, they were acting     entirely within     their rights  by  voting     as they   , saw tit,    and  while  there can now be no chance forslrcct  oi" house     lighting ijy electricity this  "year, if thc     delay results in the installation of  a  complete Avater" power system,  one     with,  as   wciciiove  can be secured,   enough power so that  streets      may be   lighted      with   arc  lights  from     the Esplanade to Fnlh  A\cnue, s our     waiting may not 1 avc  been     without reward.       In any case  let, us have     lighi   and if a by-'aw is  again    brought up for n-walcr power-  plant,  if the     voters continue in thc  same     frame of     mmd as  at present  there  will be_-vcry little,  if any,  opposition.

' Onc  of  lhe most  romantic stories of stolen jewels occurred with Fanny Kcm-  bH*.    An importunate American danced attendance upon her until one day  she   finally  and   peremptorily       bade  him     begone.   He ga'.ed steadily  at  her for a moment, then, seeing that  she was really  in earnest, he Hung a  packet upon  the  table.    "Well,"   he  said,   "you may at least  take this."  and he turned upon his .heels and left  the     room,   and  she never  saw  him  more.    Of course she opened the Pac!<  age���������what   woman  would  not?   Jn it  was  a very  beautiful jewel,  which, as  shc had rrot   the address of the gh'er,  she   bad perforce to   retain...but  not  for  long.    Some  onc  besides herself  appreciated   its   beauty   and  took  it.  Yours -passed,  and she had erased to  repine  for  its loss.    Then  she       wns  staying in Italy, and  to ber at Sorrento there came a pedlar, who, .qtrile  by  chance.,   displayed   before  her  bis  pack  of trivial   wares-    There, amour;  them,   its   value   unsuspected,   lay   the  long  lost- jewel,   with nothing- to   tell  how      it eame   into  the  possession   of  the   hawker.  To match this story one must turn  to -the experience of a Sussex clergyman.    A ring,   which wns  an heirloom  in   his   family,   was stolen  from     his  keeping.' Eighteen  years ' passed,    and  not  a word   was heard  con'-.crniiig  the  article.    Then   il, turned  up  inside one  of  t'.re fingers, of a gU>ve lost at a bazaar  in"Now Zealand-    The finder had  promoted the ���������ba/aar. and was".a relative  of  the owner  of  the  ring,    and  was   the only person  on   that   side of  the.world   who  could   have  identified  ifc.   The owner of  Die glove  was  one  ,  of  a number   of persrns   who  had   in  turn  possessed  tbe. ring.    It bad passed     from  hand   to hand all  around  the world,  to conic, ��������� at  the Antipodes,   to   (he  only   person  who  could  stay  its  further  travels  and restore  ;t  to its  rightful owner,  encer>  ^Nanatmo, Limited  ^wmj\.m>rwmRrmwm0  GEO.

LETTER   FROM   COL.   TRAC'RY  (Conliuucd  from   Page One.)  heard the lcmark oi the previous  speaker with 11,11 expression of scorn  011 his face, and clearly was not to  he oui-donc in a matter of eloquence.  "Your Worship, and gentlemen,"  he said, ''you have heard the remarks by  Mr.  B ,  and  now it     is  nry   turn   to  have   a little say.   One  morning last weei;     I was     on  my  rounds,  arnd  after   touring  the  lower  pari   of the city T   walked slowly to  thc  top of  lhc hill.   I sir del only saw a  small   dog  coming   in   my  direction,  without  a lag,   gentlemen.    Directly  hc  saw me he turned and ran  to his  homo.  But,   as  it  is my  duty to   im-  pouurd all      tagless  dogs,  >l followed  him up. and captured hiin. ,It was, of  course necessary to put. a.rope round  his neck, and as I was  doing thisj the  lady of the house,  and  owner of the  animal in  question, came out       and  asked what I was doing  with       her  dog. 'Madam, this  dog is without a.  tag,  and   it is my duty to impound  him,'  Ijcplied.    She said   his   license  hail  Ircnn   paid,   but  that,  T told her,  had     nothing to do with me.       The  dug was   without a t-ajr,   and   it  was  my duty to impound him.    I declined  lo   continue   the   argument,   and        I  took   Uic   animal   to   the 'pound.   Gen-  tleiiini,  you   know-   the   rest.    The dog  ' was      let   out   until   your   honorable  body   could render   a decision   as      lo  'who   was   right and   who  was wrong.  I That   is   all   1 have   to   say   In   your  j Worship   and   gi'iilhiiK-u,   and   I want  .your  decision:"  { It was clear, so thc. Aldermen said  1 that the pound-keeper had d) ������rc his  'duty, ali-hoiiidr it was certainly hard  on the owner or the dog, but the  .stories of the two geuitlemcn differ-,  en in many points, The matter wr.i;  eventually settled by adviw'.n-g fl-..  two men to talk it over and .wi flit  amicably between them.  see this cone, little thought he  1 was in the presence of a deadly ma-  ! chine. Being a great'collector of re  ��������� lies, he evidently thought it -was a  I pice's of grille work torn off by the  'explosion that had just happened,  and put it carefully in his vest pocket.  "M.     Chavigny  went to call   on    a  friend  in a tavern situated on one of  the  boulevards.    lie told   his  friend  about     the explosion arid exhibited  the piece  of mekl he had picked up  and so carefully thrust into his pocket.   The head of a bolt covering    the  lower aperture of the pine cone drew  the      friend's     attention,   and   they  started to unscrew the holt.   An end  of waxed thread, holding in place a  glass  tube appeared.  Then     AL   Chavigny realized , that  this,,half of metal was not the     result  of  the explosion,  hut the  bomb  itself. With the greatest precau  tion  lhe head of the screw was   replaced  and   ten  minutes  later       M.  Chavigny placed the pine cone on thc  desk of M.  Peschard,' the police commissioner of     thc'G-arllon quarters,  who     immediately informed M.    Cli-  rard,   director   of   the ���������municipal   laboratory.  M.  Girard  unscrewed the holt, and  by   pulling, the  waxed   thread,   drew  forth   ' two  small  glass  tubes,   four  centimeters  long,   filled   with  concentrated  sulphuric acid.  These  tabes  were 'plunged  into    a  mass of fulminate mercury, and were  maintained vertically   hy   two   small  fragments  of  metal.  The director of  thc laboratory had  everyone   vacate   thc  building.      M.
