Sir Sand-  ford Fleming was among the prominent persons who arrived in Montreal yesterday from Englaiwl. lie  registered at the Windsor, but will  leave in a day or two for his home  in Ottawa. ,  Sir Sandfprd has been in thc old  country  for some time,, representing  New    Zealand    at the Pacific Cable  conference which met in' London. The  proceedings and conclusions of     the  conference,     though,sub-ects of daily  press  reports,   until   very   rtecemUy,  were'   considered  in their     relations  to the British Empire, by Sir Sand-  ford   during  lis  remarks  last  night.  "The Pacific Cable in  addition to  being  a commercial, enterprise, which  returns more revenue Vhan some .other of our public works,   is .something  to  unite different  paits  of the Empire.   It is an asset as well as     an  Imperial tie, and I am firmly- of the  opinion  that  before the  contract of  thc,   Eastern    Extension   Telegraph  Company    with the' papers of   Australia ion the supply of news has expired,  some slops  will "be taken     to  convince .the  Australian  public that���������  the Pacific  Cable  should   lie lisod'for  press   despatches   between   the  coun-  tiics- it reaches."  y-You are of the opinion that the  cable should be used for pic-ss work,  as  far as practicable?"  "Yes,  there  is no  reason  why     a  cable which   is only  in  use,  perhaps,  four   hours out   of the  twenty-four  for general liafiicc. sholiid not be used  the other twenty  for  press    despatches. ;They should be transmitted  flee,   for the expenses now incurred  in operating and  maintaining" the cable    would also cover the cost      of  transmitting press riews.    This would  bring  Canada and   Australia for instance,  closer  together,   because   one  colony    would be   interested  in   the  daily affairs of the other.    What do  we get in Oannda now from Australia?    Practically nothing   of  the happenings there, and  they get as little  about   the  events   of   the   Dominion.  A more    intimate    acquaintanceship  would  spnng up between  the       two  great colonics  ife\ciy day  their  papers, published   interchange  political  commercial  and  social  reports. . Australia is a long way fiom  us, but it  would   be 'brought  neater.   Would this  not    be a leng  step  toward  uniting  parts of, the  Empire?"  "-Speaking of the catlc as a commercial , enterprise,   Sir . Sandfonl   S������ii<l  that in .his opinion  it had made      a  good    showing   since its completion'  two years ago.   During the past year  it  had y elded  a revenue   of  ������80,000.  The  working   expenses,   including   repairs, sinking fund, and other expenses,  had amounted   to ������51,000,  leaving ������31,000-toward  meeting* interest,  and   other  charges   such' as   the ���������sinking     fund.      This   was  sufficient   to  commend it  to the strong support of  the countries  which  had   laid it,  even  though some had argued  the  cable was a  millstone.  -.icons tendencies winch rc.ig.on bra* Toki0j gept# 21 _A |Jro*ongei, im.eli  been unable to eradicate.

Norman  II.  Nesbit, pastor of thc Fust Free  church,  tdndcted his resignation     at  yesterday's   services   in   a rather   unusual manner.   Aftor'thc oltertoiy solo had been sung, and  without     aji^  iioiuiciiig  his subject,   winch  was to  have     been    "What    Do We~Sland  Foi?" he made a statement  covei.ng  the action  of thc hoard   of  tiuslees  of the church at a meeting held     by  them lasi week, when ,it was decided  to   eliminate   Mr.   Ncsbilt's   regular  saiaiy    of    1.150 a month and ui lieu  thereof turn  over to him the church  collect ions,   which   amount   to nJb-tmt  $90  month.  Rev. Mi.  Nesbill pointedly objected   to   this   action   of   the   trustees,  and,,after dcclaiing ,*ha( his resignation     was    eonMitioi.ial     upon    iPie  board's giving up such  intentions,.he  Walked out of  the church by way of  the     pulpit door.   The ipoiigregatioii  had   not  heard   the  regular   Sunday  morning  address,   and   following  Mr.  Nesliitt's  exit,   a painful  .silence  ensiled.  Presently Mr. George 'Brow-no, one  of the trustees, arose and made a  statement. Tic thought the action  of Mr. Nesbitt was hasty and premature, and. while regret!ing the .occurrence, thought the difficulty could  lie  arranged.  Members of the congregation held  a meeting at the residence of Mr.  NcsMtt last, night and called a general meeting of the congregation for  Friday evening. >A vote of confidence  in Mr. Nesbitt; was unanimously passed  before the meeting closed.

The city Council are rightly devoting considerable time lo thc discussion of the electric light question,  and are using. e\ery eli'ord to ascertain the feasibility of using water  power to,run a plant if one is to be  installed. _^  It seems that  there is  no" question  but that Rush  Creek'  will supply all  thc   power  rcc'iiired  for   eight       or  nine months  in the year,  and  it  is-  ���������the general belief that there can  be  plenty of  water stored  for  the     *J-*---  auce of the year., This is, however,  not conclusively  ascertained,   nor   is  Hie is the  reverse shown.  It     is    understood    that   another  Creek,   known  as McLeod  Creek,  lying  higher  up,   and  carrying  a large  volume  or      water  runs  in  direction  that     could      be     diverted      from  its      prc-ii'iil.    bed and       turned  down.   II  this  is the case, it is well  worth    knowing.      It   is understood  that steps will  at  once be taken  to  find thc grades, etc., and  if, as stated,   by  some familiar with- that section  of the country, Bush Creek can  be reinforced   by  the waters  of McLeod,  without  too much expens-vs, the  question  or as uppiy for an  lime's of  tho    year   is settled.    Tt may       he  thought by     some  that  the council  are  very   slow  jn  arriving  at     conclusions.   It is.   however, an old proverb  "Metier slow than sorry."

The cowboy rubbed s*ho-'.nd-  eis with the ]>eer, the farmer stockman, novelist, and soldier sat side by  side, the trooper and general were at  thc same table.      \  The occasion wars thc inaugural iosi  of the Legion of Kronliersm.cn, the  motto of which is organized for  sport; Prepared for war., and those  present were gathered to celebrate  Us inauguration- To Lonsdale tho  movement owes its origan, aiwl the  conception of lhe body spread world  wide free from thc irksome discipline  of militarism, yet bound together by  a dc 1hat links fronti-ersnien lhc  world over is remarkable.  One legion of frontiersmen is something more than a big club with  scattered meinbcrshjp something"-more:  indeed than the crcalion of sentiment or thc outcome of any desire  for social recognition. It can easily  brand a new self-supporting, unotili-  ciai army, every member of which  would be practiced in the crafts that.  most nearly pertain to the art of  war, an army of trained men, trained in shooting and riding, trained' in  woodcraft,  trained in war.  The frontiersmen say the first regulation of. this remarkable ie������ion is  men who have hunted, worked, or  fought in the wilderness or the sea.  Thc wilderness is thc veldt, bush,  back blocks, camps, prairie, range,  mountain, forest, grassland, and the  desert, at end 'beyond the edge of  cavitation. ��������� It will he a large sport  dub ostcnsi-b-iiity.

"A hurricane of projectiles       from  both heavy  and  ma-chine guns  swept  down  upon his  ship.    The list       became more pronounced,  and  just before     betting  home to his  intended  victim, his ship rolled over and then  plunged bow     first into the depths.  She righted herself'as she sank, her  screws   winding  in thc air,, and carrying  down .all   hands,   including her  chief engineer,  Mr.  Purvis,  shut up  in  the engine room.
