A carload of 160 barrels of apples  ��������� infected by codlin moth has been condemned at A'ancouver by order'of .the  inspector of fruit pests. Every shipment of apples imported into this province' is carefully inspected to guard  against tlie introduction of fruit peats.  A man, in Germany recently bought  1,000 cigars and had them insured  against lire. Then lie smoked them  and demanded the amount of his policy  from tlie insurance company. The  company refused to pay it. He then  brought an action for /..ho, amount and  got a verdict.       '  .   ' ������  Hon. L. H. Davies, who presided at  tlie meeting of Maritime Liberals, says  he thinks tlie' general qlections will be  brought on. in February as soon as tho  lists are made up. Mr. 'Davies says the  Opposition contemplate a political campaign commencing on or about the  21th, and extending over portions of  New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.'  ^The eighty Norwegian colonists from  sthe United States who went up on the  str. Princess Louise recently to settle  in the Bella Coola valley, were all safely landed at their new homes. Very  rough weatlier was experienced on the  trip .along the coast. The Louise anchored a milo off the shore and Indian  canoes landed the immigrants from the  steamer.  The Edmonton Bulletin says tho  amount of gold amalgam purchased  from miners by the Edmonton branch  of 'the Imperial Bank has so far  amounted to $11,200 for the present'  season., This is about 8500 more than,  was"! purchased in the same time last  year. Tin's does not represent the  total amount of gold mined in the Saskatchewan at this point, as much of it  finds its way to market through other'  channels than the bank.   ,   j  John Walter, proprietor of the  London 7'imes,'\x dead.

LOST HIS'HAND.  /  But Discovered a New Explosive.;.  .Hudson Maxim, chief engineer of the  Maxim Torpedo and-Constructing Co.,<  of Now Jersey,,who is a brother of the  famous -Hiram ��������� Maxim, lost  his  left  hand last -week by an accideivt'-urtique  in the historyoi' explosives. - Mi-1.' Maxim recently completed and patented a  fulminate   compound   for   setting   oil"  high explosives.'  It is made of 75 per  cent, of fulminate of mercury, 15 per  cent, of nitro-glycoi-ine and 10 per cent.  of gunpowder. A largo quantity of tho  fulminate was being dried in tlie form,  of discs about the size of a 2*ic. piece,  and to see -whether the  pieces wore  ready for ate he t=cl one on a stone and  applied a lighted match to it.' "lie h-ul  picked up two of the little discs and  held one in his closed left hand as ho  touched of! the other with the match  'in' his' right.   "The disc on  the stone  burned brilliantly, sending out a golden .shov/er of sparks, some of which  must have come in contact with the  disc enclosed in his left hand, and instantly there  was an   explosion,  Mr.  ���������Maxim's hand  being blown into fragments.    Had  he held the disc in his  open  palm it would  have burned out  similar'to the other disc,, with no serious consequences.    Small pieces of the  bones were embedded in his face and  cut through his clothing.    The "shattered' limb   was   bandaged   and   Mr.  Maxim was taken to  the city as soon  as possible, where he is receiving spec-  ial treatment.     His  wound does, not  bother him Half as much as his inability  to get up and go on with his experiments  in explosives.   He says he believes the  fulminate is the most powerful mixture  pi the kind known.   He did not know  hia .hand was' gone until he looked at  it. ^ He said the compound was insensate to shock, and did not, think that  its being enclosed   so slightly would  cause such,disastrous lesults.

'  Briggo Bros., owners-of 11 prospects  on the south fork of Kaslo Creek, ten  miles from Kaslo, have'seven men���������at  work on "the Ben Ilur, and intend to  ship ore all winter. They have recently finished a trail from the mine  to the wagon road, a distance of five  miles.���������The ledge on the Ben Hur is 12  feet wide and the ore assays from 02oz.-  to 202o's. silver to the ton.  Cameron Bros!, of Kaslo, have a gold  prospect seven miles from the Ben  Ilur, on Woodbury Creek, that' assays  from $10 to 870 in gold.1- It will be  worked this winter.  Fifteen Chinamen are- washing gold  on Kaslo Creek, about a'mile from the  town. It io reported that they are  averaging $1 a day each.  ' The Surprise mine, adjoining the  Noble Five group, is developing into a  great property and ranks as the fourth  biggest proposition in tbe district. It  is owned by Alex Smith and .several  Chicago capitalists. The, ore is one of  tbe highest grade in Kootenay. Work'  will be prosecuted all winter and 300  tons shipped out. The quantity of ore  in sight will keep a large force working for a year.  The Antoine, a claim in the Surprise  basin, will ship 100 tond of ore this  winter".  S. S.

' The disputes as fo the Czar's malady  and ti eat inent continue. Many experts  believe in Br. Zacharin's diagnosis  of cancer of the kidneys. Dr. Hirsch,  the Czar's physician, agrees with Dr.  Zachari'i. Prof, Leyden, if permitted  by the Russian Imperial family, will  disclose his side of the case and describe  ��������� the 'symptoms to be pi-ight's disease.  It is reported that in a letter to a Berlin  physician Prof. Oyden has admitted  the correctness of Dr. Zacharin's diagnosis. It is not likely that the Imperial  family will permit any statement as to  treatment or the results 6f the postmortem examination. ,  A'Miian newspaper publishes a letter  from Prince Alison", a. Russian iSihilipt,  now in Lagona. lie says that lie learns  from Nihilist sources, which are ahove  suspicion as regards trustworthiness,,  that the Czar was poisoned with small"  doses of phosphorus. The process of  poisoning, he sayp, began on the first  of Match last. Aiisoif adds: ," The  saviors of Russia will now'be safe."  Dr. Leyden telegraphs to Berlin that'  the story about the late Czar having  been'poisoned by Nihilists is absolutely  false.-  The London Daily News correspondent in St. Petersburgh says that Dr.'  Zacharin is not likely to return to  Moscow at present as the populace persist in the suspicion that' the Czar was  poisoned. The students declared that'  they would not attend his lectures,  and that his life would be in danger if  should return. ���������  The. funeral of the late' Czar-will  probably take place between thei Kith  and 20th, inst., and tho marriage of-  Nicholas II. and Princess Alix 'will be  solemnized a few clays after. It is  expected that amnesty will be granted  to many offenders hi coinrnemoiation  of the accession of Nicholas II.  It is said that the new Czar, who  will be 'known'as Nicholas II., would  rather take $150,000 a year or so and  abandon' tlie czar-ship altogether, and  his uncle Vladimir, is ' credited with  being privy to this idea  arid standing  The Oriental Wap.  ��������� The Japanese are beating the Chinese in every engagement. They have  now captured the stronghold of 'Port  Arthur and are marching on to Pekin,  which, according to military authorities, is bound to fall into their hands.  The Chinese, it is staled, are suing for  peace, and have asked the intervention  of European' Powers, more especially  Great Jlritain, and Cliine.se envoys to -  European Courts have been Instructed  to ,submit ,to tho Powers the terms  China is willing to offer.        '  It is'statf-d that 70,000 Russian  I roops froni .Siberia have been concen-  tiated at Vladivo&tock.    ,  Tlie   Japanese   have   phix'-d1, three'  bridges   across-the Yniu  river, and a  large a'rniy of the invaders arc'now on  Chinese territory.  Li JI ting Chang, the Chinese Viceroy, made Admiral I'Vcinantle an offer  for the purchase of JI.il.S.

Curry, who eloped from Mission  City some weeks ago, with iMrs. Hairy  Ross and her six children, and who  narrowl}- escaped lynching for catiie  stealing- near Ijlaine, came up for preliminary trial at New Westminster last  week on one of the numerous ch.-irtjes  laid against him. The charge heard on  this occasion was that of having in his  possession, knowing the same to have  been .stolen, a lot of goods, besides the  six children, belonging to IT. Itoss.  Cuiry is a young man about 2i years  of age, six feet tall and well built, carries himself erect, and from his general  appearance and manner leads one to  believe he has received a military  training.

The four-horse stage from Northport  to Lo Roi mine made  its first trip last  week, returning,to  connect with  the  Spokane & Northern train.  Actual surveys show that the length of the road  is just Mi miles.    It has been variously-  reported all the way from lo Lo 20 miles,  ft is a good road and   the stage will be  operated regularly hereafter, connecting with ail trains, twice a week.  , This  road  runs   through   l7.

On the Ameri-  can side the rate of  wages  was $1.50  a day and on   the iir-itish side $2.50,  which is tlie fixed rate of pay on Government trail  and road work, except  in  places  where* supplies have  to   be  packed  long distances, in which cast-  tiie pay is $8 a day.

The flames rolled   up four or  five feet high in the wake of each craft  which _stirred up the accumulated filth.  It is supposed that the fire   was originally atari erl by  the tug, James Hay,  which  was towing a scow  up to  the  stock  yards.    The-" tug A. Mosher ' was  towing the schooner Ford River out of  the south fork, when both  boats were  surrounded by fire, which was consuming the gases arising to tlie  surface in  huge bubbles.     Capt. -McGih, of   the  Mosher, said both boats were in  great  danger of boing set "tin  fire, but as the  flames   were   all-around    there  ' was  nothing to do  but keep moving, and  they-Mtcceeded in getting out without  mishap.    The smoke and stench nearly  ���������overcame the crew. -The tug -William  Dickin-ion was at oiih time surrounded  by'flamofe, which were  darting' tip  as  th" bubbles came  to   the  surface  and  exploded, the-burning gas  having the-  app**arance oi miniature spouts'of fire.  After burning an hour Or more the fire  seemed to (lie out.   Tlie captain of  the  Ford Kivei -.ays that   he could sec no  oi!   whatever on   Uie������ surface   of   the  water, and he thought .the flames were  fed wholly by the ga^es which came to  the smTa.-e.   Ther.e gas^s were generated in immense vohunt-s from tho refuse matter emptied   into  the river by  tbe   rendering-   and. fertilizing  works  along the south  fork   banks.

Last" week   a  huge' landslide,'  caused'by the  continued heavy-rains-,'"  came down  the"' mountain    side   and  swept "the* cabin,   together'   with'  the  ground on which it stood, out on to the  beach almost" to the water's edge".  Tlie  four men were in the cabin at tlie time. <  and all  escaped  with  nothing   worse*  than  painful   bruises   except Kipling,'  who was pinned  liy  the leg bdtween"  two logs and   nearly buried  by earth.,  'ilis companions made every effort to  release him, hub the bide' was coming ���������  in  rapidly, and   before- this  could  be  accomplished tho water was on a level  with   the   unfortunate' man's    neck.  There w.is only one chance  of saving  Kipling's life, and that was to sacrifice  the. leg, and to this he consented.   Mc--  Clughan,   therefore, took an  axe, and  severed" the limb. Kippling was carried  to the .cabin .of ,-t settler  named Mc-  Gea'ry near by, where the flow of blood  was stopped, but,   though, everything  possible was done to alleviate Kipling's  pulfei-ings he gradually weakened and  passed away the following afternoon.  The three survivors  took Use  body to  Ak'i't  Hay,   from   where passage  was  lliken to Victoria  by-the str. Princess  Louise.    Deceased was '.12 years of age  and his parents icsid.* in Victoria.   ��������� ���������   _ ���������   _ . _     ���������   OCEAN  STEAMSHIPS  ROYAL MAIL LINES.

IS THERE ANYTHING IN \T1  A okkat ileal is being written in the  provincial  newspapers concerning .Mr.  , Davie's trip to Ottawa.    Tho writer of  a long letter to the Prociwe professes  ��������� to have inside news that the Premier,  '. finding, bis   position    untenable,   had  gone, to apply for the chief justiceship  now vacant  by  the death   of Sir jVL.  TJegbie, and that he would return with  the appointment in his pocket, leaving  his   colleagues   "in   the soup."   ; But  why should  the Premier's position i>e  untenable?    The writer says' it is in  connection  with   the British   Pacific  railway pledges  and  the stand taken  by  the  new   Chief   Commissioner  at  Kamloops._   But^is   it true that such  pledges were given to the Island constituencies ?   ,If so, it must have been  in secret conclave, as not a single Op-  ' position paper on the Island published  anything to that eftect, and it is only  recently that such a' charge has, been  formulated by the Mainland Opposition  Press.    And even if it were true, Mr.  Davie is too astute to be" cornered by  such a trivial .thing as a,forced pledge  at election time, especially when given  to a mere handful of voters in one corner of.'the province.    Still, one never  knows how the political cat is going to  to jump, and there is a possibility that  the Premier is after the chief justiceship.    Now, while   he ,is probably as  well able to  fill  that   position   as any  man ,in  the  province,   it would be a  ' most' inopportune moment for him to  leave the Government,  and  criticism  would be severe and deserved.  But Mr.  Davie is still a young man, and we do  '"not  like  to  believe   that   at  such  a  critical time he would run away from  the leadership and take refuge under  the sanctity and  security which overshadow the judicial chair.  ,  m m         CORRESPONDENCE.

It appears that while, playing  whist at the Victoria 1 Eotol about midnight -on that date, defendant, .who  was said to he somewhat under the influence of liquor, drew a revolver.  Thomas Downs, who was tbe first  witness,'' said he was at the Victoria  Hotel on the night in question and saw  LoCasto, with others, sitting at a table  playing-cards. Witness was not playing. Heard them using angry words,  and LoCasto remarked something  about a revolver and put his hand into  his overcoat pocket to draw it out.  Witness told'him he had better give, it  to him, and he (witness) then took it  away.���������Cross-examined: Did not think  Lo Casto meant to shoot him', as he  had had no angry words with him.  Defendant was not drunk, lie had .his  overcoat on. Witness took the revolver away from him because he thought  some damage would be done.  James Edwards, botel clerk, said he  saw Lo Casto in the Victoria Hotel on  the night of the oth. Did not see any  revolver drawn. They were playing  whisfc. There did not seem to be any  quarrel. Did not see. Downs take away  the revolver. The weapon was afterwards given to him by Downs, who did  not say where he got it. Had heard  that it belonged to Lo Casto, and witness returned it to him on Thui-sda)-.  Never heard a man  threaten another  lo.-el.

Lie said: 1 went into,Bourke's  saloon last Friday evening, and had  been there but a short limeowhen  Bickerton came in. ' I' asked him to  have a drink .with me, and ho did so.  We then sat down, and ai'tei- a while I  said: ".Sam, why don't you learn .to  tell the truth sometimes?" (Laughter.)  lie had begun talking derogatory of  another gentleman, and 1 called Bickerton a "lying son-of-a-birch."'' <* He  then knocked mo down and gave me a  few good kicks on the chest. Somebody  sep.-irated us, and when we got up we  went at one another again. He got  me at the end of the bar and knocked  me down again. Mi-. Bourke then  separated us. I never laid, a hand on  Bickerton before he struck me. I did  not catch hold of his shirt and jerk it  by the collar while he was sitting in  the chair. 1 am 02 years old. I very  seldom quarrel wiLh anybody. Bicker-'  ton is'a shoemaker, or pretends to be.  I have worked for him on salary. Am  in business for myself now-. Never had  any feeling against him, but often sent  him work. 1 was so much injuted that  for two or three days. I did not think I  w.mld'live. (Witness took off his coat  'and showed bruises.) I .have earned  only about i-il.-K) since I received the  injinies.'    I usually earn $20.  John Bourke, hotel-keeper, said he  was in his bar on the night in question.  Bickerton came in shortly after Wilson, and Wilson asked him to lake a  drink, which liedid. Witness then went  to play a game of seven-up with Frank  Sanders. Soon he. heard a scuflle and  saw Wilson on the floor with Bickerton  on top. (Sanders parted them, but they  went at it again. Sain gave Wilson a  push and said "I could hurt you if I  wanted to." They then went the other  side of the counter, where witness  could' not see what happened. They  had three scuflles. Did not sec any  boots used, but there might have been  at the other end of the counter. Wilson was not drunk, but had been drinking. Ue did not appear to be quarrelsome. Heard him say to Bickerton:  " Why don't you learn to speak the  truth sometimes ?'' Also he.u-.l Wilson  call him a "lying son-of-ii-bitchi" Ho  thought the cook parted them Ihe second time. Did not go for the police  because the fight was over in five minutes.  f hai-Ies Mol-ien, miner, gave evidence  thai Wilson was very sick in bed Ihe  day after the fight, ;u:d that, he nnr-ed  him. He opened bis shin and found  large bruise-, on the right breft-l. Wilson told him he thought his ribs were  broken. Could not say whether the injuries wer-e caused by ,i boot or fist.  Always found Mi. "VV'ilson polite and  genteel in every way.  Frank Sanders, mechanic, saw the  =c-nti!f' in snloon, and corroboiatcd the  evidence of Air. J'oui'kc. Saw no kicking. Heard plaintiff call defendant a  " lying son-oi-a-bitch." Witness parted  them t he first time. The cook parted  them the second time, and Mr. Bourke  the third time. Didn't see how Wilson  could be kicked in the armp''*- when  they were side, by side on th' floor.  I lave known defendant, since 1802.  Went back io the card table and played between the first and third rounds.  Mr. Bourke: 1 think we quit playing  after Sanders left the table to "part  thcni.  11. A.

Wilson afterwards went to the kitchen to get, but'ei- to put on his face, on  which tli ore. wore several bunches, and  a trace of blood on one of his ears.  Could not say whether defendant was'1  drunk or sober, but Wilson, was under  the influence of liquor.  S.i'muel J.

I told him -,he was  old enough to be" my grandfather. As  1 was falling my hand hit the counter,  and dislocated two of my fingers, and  sidnued rny KnucKles. ' Am positive  my hand was hurt by hitting the counter and not by striKing Wilson.  Malcolm Ross stated ".hat he pulled  the lingers into joint atBicirerton's request, in tbe Columbia House bar.  J.

Not a  trace of the meat, ri/le or tins could be  found,  but  plainly .discernible   in  the  snow were the  tracks of  three   bears.

!;   ' We   veiituio,    however,   to   propose   n
.   scheme, of which we  have   seen   no note
thus far, but which would certainly inter-
' ost not only all chutes of euginoo s, but all
concerned in railway,*,   and the   public at
large.     vIt   is   a  familiar fac, th-il uiiiou^
the most presdiug problems of  the day are
those   tbut   relate to  tbe electricul transmission of energy, and that m  this   hour
, f, some most liinportaiit'work is being done..
Up to   this   timo,   however,    tbo. energy
transmitted   bos    been'   th.,t   of-   waterfalls,   and   all    tbe   plants'   ander'"Lcon-
strnetion,    such   'as   that   for    Niaguru,
deal     with     water-    power.      Now,      a
great - deal   has   been said about   burn-
' ing    the    coal    at   the   mine and   tr.ua-
mitting its energy  electrically   iuatoad  of
the fuel'itself; aud in Eugl��ud   two   well-,,
known engineers, Messrs.   B.   H.   Thwuite
and James Swinburne,    have  worked   out
carefully tbe details of   an  electric transmission   to   London   of  the energy ot the,
coal fields of the Midlands aud Yurnt-liire.
What we propose is'that the Paris Exposi-
,   tion  shall.   In  like mannsr, - have till- iu
power generated at coal, mines. now  supplying Paris, and that this power shall be
transmitted electrically.    _.  .* .*   .'
The Chicago Fair made  no  demonstration of this kiud.    In fact, nono  lias ,- evor
yet been made.    The uenrest approach, to
it was the  remarkable  watorpower -transmission of 100 miles, under the  pntionage
of the Emperor of Germany, from Li.uffon
to tbe Fraukforf*Electrical~ Exhibition   in
1891.1' Some idea of what is involved as
to expense -may  ^bo,.- formed ��� from   the
Thwaite-Swinburne plan' of*.a l100- miles
transmission of 10,000 b. p. of energy from
coal, nt a-cost not to exceed, all told, ��340,-
000; on which basin,  according  to CVE.L.
Brown, small nssrs  of  power  in Loudon
oould get 1 h. p. per annum for $20    This
plan obutemplated the nse of large gas'engines at tbe generating points aud   a. line
potential   of,-80,000   volts.    It is evident
that  all>'the   apparatus,1   including ' line,"
would have considerable  value  after  the
close of the exposition.- -The'Chicago plant
for power reached about 20,000 h.  p., and
it is not likslv that Paris would much  ex-
oeed, if it equaled, this; so that taking* the
figures  already    cited,   thu   initial   total
cost   would   not     exceed-    ��680.000    or
$3,400,000,   and   tbe   investment   iu  gas
engines,     generators,    transformers    and
motors  wou'd  certainly   be a   largely recoverable quantity, to soy   nothing' of tho
value of the  copper  in   the  line,   costing
about jSSOO.OOO.    Indeed,   if the  demonstration proved successful, the plant could
���be left intact for the doily supply of power
to the various large   arid   small   industrios
���of the city, it being  eafo  to  assume  that
such a quantity could very eiihiiy  be  marketed.     We have no   data   at   hand na   to
cost of power in .Paris, bnt^is   is  probable
that the ordinary willing prioe of 1 h.- p. is
not below $40 or ?50.
If such a plan as this be not carried out,
. the exposition will still have to be Jur-
nished with its power in soma way, and if
resort be made to tlie ordinary meibods
there would be required for the 20,000 h.p.
a lar-*e outfit of coal ildings, boilers, engines, shafting, machinery rooms, etc By
1900 such methods will seem more dirty
and antiquated .even than now, but it
might not perhaps be a bad idea as a compromise, to divide tho power plant into
two contrasting 10,000 h. p. units, one
long distance transmission and tbe other
that of generation iu, Bitu. The longer,
bolder plan is that which appeals more to
the engineering imagination, and one
iu the execution of which the authori ies
of the exposition would probably enjoy
rery hearty advice, assistance and cooperation from French electrical ^'inmu-.-r-
ing concerns, as well as ' from others in
America, England, Switzerland and elsewhere. If it be received to stick to wat.-r
power, possibly tho Exposition might bo
run by eneigy from the little sister H.'pnb-
lic of tbe Alps, althou.-h by 1000 wo shall
all know a good deal aboni tiie workin ��� of
such a plan, from th<> results obtained with
