In  he past  the Sctoch herring brought  lore  than double tlie  price of       the  JoVa Scotia herring in  the American  Ind  European  markets.    Russia   and  'icrmany are tbe two largest consuni-  rs of herring in the world. To   those  larkets   alone  last year Scotland ex-  iorted     eight million barrels of her-  iing,  and   enormous prices  are   paid  St. Petersburg for the first catch  if Scotch  herring  The     manager  of the experiment,  Mr. Cbwie, returned this"season'with  his  crew,   and  operated  this  season'  unt 1 July 1, and. since then- at Yary  mouth,  on  the western coast;, of the  province.   The catch this. year. ; was  larger .and the price equally satisfactory,   lie is   thoroughly  convinced  of  the superior excellence of the     Nova  Scotia herring and of.  the prospects  of      un enormously   increased  exjrort  trade.      His crew,, men and women,  intend remaining here and  engaging  in     the fishing trade.   Their services  and   the   instruction  offered   free  during these   two seasons,- will do much  to make the experiment a permanent  success.

RUSSIA'S FOREIGN POWER.  What is to be Russia's foreign  policy in the future?   The view oi General  Alexandar  Kireyef,  who   is  well  known in St. Petersburg, and   whose  patriotism     is declared  above suspicion,  appears  irr the  London  Tunes.  ���������  The      generally,   accepted   doctrine  that  Russia  must  strive to     reach  an icc-froc port is subjected to       a  searching-   critic pm   and   declared   to  be "one  of the most dangerous discussions     for   our  (Russian)   foreip;ii  policy."    Open   ports   in   tlie   Pawi.ic  and elsewhere arc ncci^sary  for Gcr-  M.anv.   France    and   Kiuiiand.   because  those countries have really important  commercial   inloresls   in  the  Pacific,  ard    because  1liey  have  to   struggle  with  each other for a continuous and  quick  export of products  and   population;   but  the position of Russia   is  very dilferent.  "What have wc to  transport by tlie  Trans-Siberian   railway   to   thc   ice-  u-ee port.on the Yellow Sea,  ior  Lhc  Japanese, the Chinese, the Americans  ' or  the Australians? .   -   .  Where  'in- our country   do   wc. find   over-production arrd densitv of population? Is  not Siberia still  empty?  And     who  is there   to  prevent our   subjects from  settling   in   China,   Japan.,   Oceanrca.  " Australia   and   America?    For      that  there is no necessity   ior  arr. ice-free  port.    All   our products   and   trade go  to West   or  South,  either  by land or  ���������  by the Baltic, and the Black  Sea.    Up  to  the present   L-imc our chief exports  to   Japan   consist   of fish,   sugar    arrd  petroleum.      ���������   ���������   These require     no  Trans-Siberian   railroad   and. no   ice-  free port  on the Pacific;   they  go by  - sea anxl  will never go by rail-   If our  products should be unexpectedly, found  bv  the   Japanese,   Chinese,   or   Polynesians better  and cheaper than   the  products  of  other countries   they will  be readily purchased  no matter from  what port they come."  The     writer  draws  thc conclusion  "It is       time  for  us to  understand  that  we have   no   essential   interests  irr   tire Far  East,  and that   for      the  -guaranteeing of thc modest .part which  we have a right to play in   the Pao'-  lic, we have no need to expend blood  or gold."  It must not, however, be supposed  that  the  gallant general   wishes  his  country   to   abandon  all   great   ideas  and  descend   politically  to   the  level  of .Switzerland and Belgium.  On the  contrary,  hc wishes  her  to   act       a  gjreat part  in thc world;  but he   advises  her  to confine  herself  to       the  field  of  activity which lias been destined    roi-   her by    Providence,     and  from which  she has  been temporarily  delivered  by   false ambitions  in    the  Far   East.    As he has  been all     his  life   a    Slavophil,   it is hardly  necessary  to add that in  lus opinion     her  true field  of activity is  in Southeast-  cm Russia.

That  an alumnus of     a  college  can  convict  his' alma maecr  of such  athletic corruptions     should  convince ,the reading public that dras-  ,tic  reform  measures  are  needed      in  thc athletic  departments' of all   our  great universities.    Mr.   Jordan       in  part says:  "It is a lamentable paradox in thv.  code of ethics governing college athletics that apioper defence of 'college horror' should depend upon an  improper defence of methods that  breed only college dishonor.

After describing how  Prof.  C.    D.

So   it would  be  unnatural  for   any  victorious   university,  gorging her vanity  upon   the envy of her  rivals,   to   discern   a fundamental   fallacy   in her  prescription   for   'college  honor,'  much  less would  she feci  directed  by conscience  to  confess      to  the  inevitable deception.    As  among  men,  so it has   been   with scrambling  universities;   it  has  remained  for the  beaten,   pauperized,  and  crippled  devotee  of  the gambling   game   to discern thc need of the new definition of  honor  and  to confess   to   the lie.  "Thus it came about that the University of Wisconsin, long a leader in  the western game, was driven by a  lack of resources, inell'rcient management and a pack of parasites who demoralized her athletics, to free herself forcibly from her .bondage, look  about for a new definition of college  honor, and confess to her lie. In an  effort at, reform during thc last year-  she deposed thc powers that miserably governed her athletics, made  her president ultimately responsible  for their proper conduct, and hy  very earncdt protest, discrediting  those ah'311 sources of athletic graft  which had brought dishonor to thc  institution.

Certain  hoys here seem to  think it very runny   to  pelt   a Chinaman  with stones,  and never  lose an opportunity  to set  on   n defenceless   Celestial.   Thc  fact  .that   they   thought  the  man   who was  injured by  (he siorre was a Chinaman  is no  evcuse,     audit  is to   be hoped  by prosecuting them  lie will  do some  thing toward stopping such  brutality  on   the pai I  of youngsters.  wi.
