Parliament  was   Dissolved' Thursday'  , ��������� and the Elections Will Take Place  ' June 23rd ���������The Matabele Uprising  Growing More Serious. -  Ottawa, April   2.'1.���������The   Dominion  House of Commons was  prorogued   at  9 o'clock Thursday  evening   by   Lord  Aberdeen with the usual ceremonies.  The supplementary   estimates   were  ' put through before udjnuniinent and  embodied in.- a supply bill, ft was  also stilted in the. Senate by Sir Mac-  'kewzie Bowel 1   that  nominations   will  ������ take place on June lGth, and elections  on .June,, 23id. Writs are made ro-.  Uirnaiiie^on^uTTiTday, July 13th, and  the H������u8e. will inert again on July  loth. ,There was a great exodus of  members both east and west.  Among the political ru'mors and  changes caused by the prorogation are  ones   to   the   effect that  Sir   Charles  '' Tupper is to be Premier, Mr. Meredith  will resign the judicial bench and', be  Minister of Justice if his party is  elected, and that Sir Oliver llowat  and Premier Green way, of Manitoba,  , will be Hon. Mr. Liui-iei's first lieutenants. Jt is thought that the coming elections will bo the   fiercest  ever  - fought in Canada. Sir John Carling  and Mr.' Tlios. Temple, 'M. P.,Mhivb  been' appointed Senators.  , On Thursday'.the French Ministry.  M. Bourgeois, leader, announced their  resignation. The primary cause of  this resignation is the friction between  o-       i       o _ i  the. House, and Senate. Mr. Bourgeois'  principle was the House elected by  universal suffrage had the right to  make or ' unmake,1 ministries. The  ministry was iuclinech to socialism.  .France is greatly excited.

She wintered at Banff .from  whieh point she has contributed some  very interesting articles' on  the  enjoyments of winter life at the National  Paik,   But with   the' first   breath' of  Spring she  is on the road  again,  and  this time her journey will he more hazardous than  any she  has  undertaken  heretofore.     It is no less than a trip to  the'Arctic, foi ,which all arrangements  have been made.    Miss Joussaye   will  leave Athabasca,, Landing  May 15,   accompanied by her nephew and'two Indian guides  furnished   by the   Hudson  Bay Co.    Journeying by canoe, to  the  head   vWvters   of   tin*' Maekeir/.io   and  thence to its mouth, from which point  slie will   take a   whaler for  Sitka'and  from   there to  Victoria or, Vancouver  by steamer.     The  entire  trip  will occupy about  foui 'months  and   she   expects to arrive at  Vancouyer  in  September.    The undertaking is not without its (jangers, hut they have all  been  con11ted"by this- intcipid scribe.   Knowing her exploits in the past, it is hardly  too niuen to say that natureeannotiui-  pose an obstacle too great too be- overcome bv her ingenuity a'nd tact.

Her ho-tof  friends in and out of tin- fourth  estate  will heartily wish her ban ��������� uo;/(t!/c' and  a safe return.

The city is as yet  small, but its prospects are very bright,  on account of its beautiful situation and the contiguity of some of'the  richest mineral claims in the- country.  The lake is 20 miles long by 2A miles  wide and is fed at. the upper end by the  Lardcau 1 liver. On either side the  <mount.iins rise like spires,' with here  and there a mighty glacier shewing  through the vallejs to lend awesouie-  tiess and grandeur to the scene.

This was replied to  by Mr. Sibbald asking amount to be.  made available at once, but it was returned because M\: Mara had already  left for K.unloups. On the <>ver\\ day  that Mr. Mara leleg'raphed 'the estimates went through and the house  piorogued.'  .The question now is:���������Was the Government fooling Mr. Mara, or^he but  fooling us, when he believed provision  made for the canyon.

come to the   assistance  of our   worlhv
Government agent, in asking the Government to give him some help   iii   the

for any one man to,do   faithfully   and
without slighting  some- duty   for   another,   all   that   is   committed   to   his

most painstaking in   the   performance
of his duties, but   they are   too   manv'
and   heavy under   the  peculiar   conditions   existing   in     Revelstoke. It
is impossible for one'man to look after
the peace of this town separated  as ' it
is,   without    neglecting   other  duties.

A,PEN  PICTURE OF   FIGHTING  THE  SOUDAN    ,  IN  By a Clever Writer���������Kipling's Description of an Attack on the British  by Dervishes, Who Fight Li'/.e  Demons in the Face of Discipline  and Modern Equipment.  In view of tlie recent J3rit;sh advance  into the Soudan country, the following  deseiiption of an attack  on   ,i JJritish  .square   by  Dervishes,   from   Jvipling's  ' "Light that Kailed.*1 is of interest:  A bugle lilevv furiously and the   men  on the bank hurried to I heir arms  and  ' aeeoutreineuts.cj    The  camel'corps  on  (he hank yelled to the infantry to come  to thorn, and a  hoarse  .shouting down  the river s/iovvcd that  the  remainder  of the column had wind of tlie  trouble  and was hastening to take -hare in   it.  " As swift lv as a reach 'of still   water  is  crisped by the.wind,   tlie  rock  .strewn  Q   ridges   and   scrub-topped   hills     weie  troubled   and   alive  with  armed men.  Mercifully it occurred lo thr.-=e to stand  far off foi a, time,   lo shout and gesticulate joyously.'     One man even delivered himself of *.a long  story.       The  camel coi ps did  not (ire.      They  were  only  too   glad   foi   a   little   bieathing  space until so'me sort,  of square could  be formed.    The men on the sand hank  i-an to (.heir side, and   the  wbaleboats,  an they toiled up within 'shouting  distance,   were   thrust   into  the  nearest  ' bank and emptied of all   s'tvn   the  *uck  and a few men   to  guard  them.     The  Arab oialor ceased   libs  oiifciies,   and  his friends howled. "Oufseouts should  Jiave  told��������� us   of   this:    "We've been  'trapped," said   a   subaltern.      "Aren't  England's Harbor Defences.  Mr.   F.  II.   Lynn,   formerly an  'instructor   in   torpedo  practice   in    the  Royal Engineer Corps of Great Britain,  savs that J3ngland is, the best protected  country on earth.    "Millions of pounds  Jiave,, been   quietly  invested    in    submarine defence for  tlie principal   liar-  hours.    Every port of any consequence  in   Great   Britain,    Jieland    and    the  Jirilksh   possessions  is  protected,   by  a  network of from ,"500 to 1,(KX) submarine  mines,' all connected with electric   batteries on nliore, and   needing  only   tlie  'pressing of   a   key   to    explode   them.  The arrangement and method of   placing   these   mines   are   practically  the  same in all   the  ports.     Survey*   and  soundings are first  taken   to   properly  mark out the boundario.-, of  the   navigable  channel.-,   and   when   these  are  established the mines are placed in fan-  shaped groups across  each   pa-s.ige,   a  lorpedo   being  set at every  J00  feet.  Under the existing conditions, with the,  mines confined at  the   bottom   of  the  channels   and - exploded' only'by   the  pressing of an  electrio key on  sh"re,  countermining and nets have lo-t, their  usefulness, and all danger of 'pVe.ii,-Ujji:i'-  discha.'ge ,is removed.       The  Thames  below London is set  with   l.OLHJ  mines,  each   loaded   with   from   50    to   J,OIK)  pounds of gun cotton,   and   over  these  horrible     machines   (here -'daily    pass  hundreds of vessels carrying tboii-ands  of people  and  cargoes  of  inestimable  value.

They  had grown   careless.    The  camel  guns  spoke   at   intervals,   and    the    square  slouched forward amid   the  protest of  the camels.    Then came the attack   of  3,(XX) men, who had   not  learned  from  books that it is impossible for troops in'  close order   to  attack  against  breech  loading fire.      A   few  dropping  shot-  heralded   their ( approach,   and   a   few  horsemen led, hut the bulk of the fore  ���������was naked humanity, mad   with   tage,  and       armed wilh       the       , spear  ;md   the   sword.

Tlie home, which has been erected at a  cost of SS0.000, apait fiom   the  site,   is  intended to meet the. wants of a section  of   the   community   of   a   large   ci(y,,  whose wants have hitherto been uncou-  sideied   by   any  municipal  authority.  This,i.s the class of widows and  widow-1  ers who have to earn their daily   bread  and who are  burdened , with  children.  The widow or widower will be   able   to  reside in the Home,   and  to  leave   the  children, ' ho vcve.r youn^, during   the  daytime while at work, or the children  can be left at the JJonie during the day  only and taken   away  in   the  eve.dug.
