UNHAPPY RUSSIA...	
Mr. Hugo (Inn/, ol Vienna, alter
visiting Russia and investigating the
"conditions'In'that country, has ..rite
tea a hook on the subject which has
now been translated by Mr. Herman
Rosenthal and published by Harper,.
Brothers. Thc picture oi life given
by Mr. Gan_, whether true or lalsc,
is anything but bright;the malignant
shadow ofPlehve,, tlie late assassinated minister il the interior, seems to
rest over thc whole, land. Thus he has
an interview with a Count, who is
described as belonging to the inner
governmental circles:
WWhat Save you hcarif?"'a.ks tlie
Count.*'   ": :         '
'That. Russia is starving, while the
papers report a surplus in the treasury."      i  . r,    '       ,
'That, unfortunately, is true.'
'That your thinking people arc in
dispair."
"Also true.1" '   ■' -
"That a revival ot thc Reign ol
Terror is to be feared."
"Equally true.".    _	
"That all Russia hopes the war
will be lost, because only in that way
can the present state ol things be
brought to an end,"   j
' "True again."   „..,.
"That the present regime passes all
bounds of. depravity, and can be compared with the Praetorian rule in the
period of the decline ol Rome."
"That, understates the truth."    ...
My iaccmiirt have, taken; on a,very,
st/raiige  expression during this brisk
play ol questions and answers,     (or
thc Count took  the initiative     and
said: ...,„...., .   .,
"You are, I can sec, surprised that
I, as a Conservative official, should
answer i in this way; but _> hope you
do not consider 'conservative' and
'infamous' synonymous terms. II you
do not, you will not expect me to
approve thc regime of Plchvc. That
is not a conservative regime, ft ts
thc regime ol hell founded by the
devil,a t the head of the most important department." . -,    :

A Finnish patriot who writes un

the c/.ar broke thc vow he took m
■ his accession to maintain "inviolate

graphic account in the De.en»lllc'rrnii_i'

"The Situation in Finland." After

ring thc management of Finnish affairs to Russian administrators, lie
pictures the hardships endured li)
the Finns under the new fraudanrcn.-
tally lawless regime. It is a Sony
story he has to tell. Bobrikoif and dc
Plchve have ridden rough-shod over n
cultivated people of peaceful .mil !_._>,
abiding instincts. Functionaries elect
ed by the communes have. Iieeij - iji-
contincnlly dismissed to make wily
lor the minions of the oppressor. Cui
ilarmes have invaderl th. re-i'lcilces ot
prominent men and carried ol papers
anil books. Innocent persons have .
been arbitrarily iiiiprisoiieil iimi l.iu
tally ill-treated. Some lifty leading
i.li/.eiis have been driven out oi tlic
country because they did not ann'ovc

incut to which they were .ieclcil,
and generally theiu|e ot despot 1..111
has supplanted the rule of law ui'i'.ci
which Finland has prospered (or generations. Finlander says:
"According to law, ev?ry private
citizen has thc right to prosecute iu
a court, -ot law any. olIic|al, who, as
such, has violated his rights or done
him any injury. This important legal guaran^op..has,.been.abpl.shed, inasmuch as now the permission of tin

right to lorm socictios lor purposes
ot general utility has been subjected,
to arbitrary restriction. The right to
discuss matter., ol public intercsl al
meetings has been made dependent on
the permission of the police authorities. The censorship ol printed matter, which was formerly exorcised
with liberality, has been preposterously aggravated.
"The police iu Finland used- to be
a well-regulated body, which performed-its duties conscientiously in. the
service ot order and justice. Now it
is a dcmdr'aliz«l.instrument tor political persecutions. The police'' budget has been largely increased. Moreover, the country has been favored
with a string body ol Russian gendarmes, which, tor.aycarly consider:

and commits acts ol violence against

THE SENSE OF HUMOR.
. When you hear it said ot a man
that "he takes himscll too seriously"
it is another way of saying that lie
has no sense of hunor. And thc pity
of the thing is that, like taste ' aiid
touch, it is born with a man and cannot be acquired. It is 110 respecter of
persons;, the London cab man possesses' i-'nibre frequently than thc parvenu or aristocrat he may be driving.
"Where did you learn that dreadful
language?" asked a shocked minister
of religion of a London workman.
"Learned it?" answered the Workman with .scorn,. "I never Warned It,
it's a lilooinin' gilt." -ni s n.'cli
may.-be said of a sense vf m.ir. It
is often, ot course, just be suving
ijfiality which has placed a iter ol
prose or a poet among the ' . imrtals.

WELL PLAYED;
Each   time   the Ladysmith    City
Band appears in public there seems
to Ire an improvement in the playing
that must be very gratifying to the
memliers of that enterprising musical organization, and speaks well for
thc instruction of Mr. Whitcomh, the
leader.   Those who attended the concert on Saturday night at the opera
house   were certainly    well pleased
with the excellence ot thc programme.   It . was    well chosen and the
playing ol the selection- of Irish and
Scottish airs was particularly good,
an encore being responded to for the
last  mentioned.    Mr.  Austin 1-Iuho's
cornet solo and the introduction    ol
Ringing hy some ol the bandsmen accompanied by the instruments 0! their
companions were very pleasant innovations.     After the concert dancing
was kept up till midnight.;

LEAGUE GAMES TONIGHT..
Two more games in the city basketball league will be played this evening at the opera house end .s an

WRESTLING.
Thc wrestling match between Sine
Swanson an I Killeen at Nanaimo on
Saturday .night resulted In a draw.
Swanson was by tar the better wrestler, but Killeen, owing to his
weight, managed to hang on and prevent a throw. The preliminary between McCuish and 'Bonasky, went to
Bonasky, who got two falls to Mc-
Cuich's one.

SENIORS WIN.
Tlic senior and Intermediate association football players had a good
time in the rain yesterday at    the
Bunker    -grounds, kicking about the
leather and occasionally absorbing a
juicy mud puddle in their scant garments when some enterprizing opponent upset them. It was a good-tempered, friendly match more lor practice than for blood, and resulted  in
the seniors winning by a score of  4
I to 0.   Adam and Langridge were the
scorers each taking one goal in   the
Iirst and second halves. During play
Sanders had to retire owing to ■ a
slight injury to his knee.
