Otherwise, like  all the res I ol Korea, it is filthy and poor.  There are eight gates to the wall, and they  are opened at sunrise and closed at annuel or shortly afa-r. The ciii-few-belJ rings  lit eight o'clock in the evening, and any  niau caught out after that hour is whipped.  "When the gates are shut access is onlv  obtainable by scaii-ig a dilapidated portion  of the wall. It is officially estimated that  .the cily contains about 30.000 houses, and  the bulk of these consistof thatched hovels,  lining narrow and fetid lanes. There are  three main streets commuicaiing with the  King's palace. They are quite fiftv ynrds  "wide and smoothly gravelled; but even in  these principle thoroughfares overcrowd-'  irg and squalor assert themselves, for  along the roadway may be seen rows of  straw-thatched Bheds ' on either hand,  ���������which reduce the space for traffic to a  narrow riband in the center. Upon either  side of the .streets runs a loathsome gutter.  Sanitation is absolutely unknown and  consequently no attempt is made to flush  these stagnant drains. The people, it wilj  be readily understood, are filthy in their  habits. They don't seem to have even a  remote idea of the elementary laws of  health.  The Korean towns and villages are woi-po,  if. anything can be worse, than the capital.  There may be said to be two distinct types  of the country town or village;, the purely  agricultural,   which lies   away   from   the  beaten track, and  that which* depends on  the entertaiument of travellers as it does  ou farming.   Any wayside etnfe furnishes  an example of the latter  kind.   The road  enters between  two "higgiedy piggledy"  lines of low,  mud walled, straw-thatched  hovels, thrown up at random, irrespective  of convenience or effect.   The usual refuse  Leaps,  stacks   of   fuel and   opeu   sewers  abound;  while a  number   of sun-tanned  children  playing around the entrance to  the huts, and a crowd of adults "arguing on  some question of the hour, combine to make  the scene a live]y one. The inns are generally only eating houses, aud do not provide  lodging.   The rear of the inns furnishes a  court yard, often garnished  with a pig-  stye, littered with fodder aud pitchers aud  vats    containing   condiments,   so   much  prized by the  Koreans.     A   large   iron  cauldron for cooking food is placed in some  convenient corner in.the  room,  although  it is always best,   needless   to   say,   for  travellers to cook their own food in  their  own utensils.   The guests' rooms are quite  ��������� -without   furniture,   aud   contain nothing  but a reed mat spread over the mud floor  and some blocks of wood for pillows.   In  the winter they are heated by  means of  flues passing under the clay iloors.  Tho eating-shop is quite open to the  street with the exception of a shelf, on  which the viands are exposed. These varv  slightly with the season and. locality, but  they generally consist of small, ragged bits  of raw beef, slices of bean-cured boiled  pork, salt fish, sprouted beans, chopped  turnips, chillies, and steamed dough iu  rolls. Wine can also be generally had at  the iuus. The=stock in trade of the proprietor consists of a rude kind of furnace  made of mud and stone; this heats a pot  ���������which'1 is - always full of seething brown  broth. There is. also a rice" copper, a  bench of brass.basins and spoons, -a collection -of. coarse China bowls and an  ���������eartherhware'paTrof "clmtcoal~liopt busily  engaged with a gridiron, iu which scraps  of meat, or tid bits composed of three or  lour onions and shreds of' beef skewered  ��������� on a wooden, spit, are roasting.

The magistrate's  ollice is, say, ten or twelve feet square, aud  the open yard is a court house. Tattered  mats are spread ubout. over the wooden  floor, and an earthen ware pot containing  live charcoal hangs in the centre for lighting pipes. The mud walls are unplastored  and show all the cracks, the pillars which  support the heavy tiled ��������� roof are bendiug  beneath the weight and the rafters are  grimy "with ciiikit aud cobwebs. Dirty  robes hang about aud brooms and gourds  are scattered about the floor. The writing  materials consis.t of a small round table  the size'.of a foot stool, an ink- stone, Chinese ink, arid hair pencils.

The middle class forms the  merchants and junior public service; while  the lowest class, which comprises fourr  fifths of the native population, are literally  hewers of wood and drawers of water for  the two higher classes.  Korea has practically no army or navy.  There are about four or five thousand so-  called soldiers stationed at Seoul as a body  guard to the King, but only about fifteen  hundred of these are real fighting mer.

THE CZAP. OF RUSSIA.  St. Petersburg, Oct. 21.���������The dearth of  news from Lividia occasioned the wildest  rumor's to circulate yesterday, to the effect  that the Czar was actually deinl. but that  the fact was concealed because the Czarewitch had renounced the succession to the  throne and the Grand Duke George, the  Czar's second sou, had died from lung  trouble, from which he has been a long  sufferer. These rumors were silenced by  the issuing of a builletin at night, stating  that the Czar had been out of his bed during the day, but that the general condition  was unchanged. To-day the rumors have  been revived iu an intensified form, the  Sabbath leisure and the gatheiing of unusually large congregations, attracted by  the special prayers for the Czar, assisting  in'the growth of the rumors aud speculation. It is everywhere recognized that  th"e-doctofs~in-atti?udance'-ou~the-Czar-can-'  have no hope of liis recovery.and that 'hoy  are only devoting their efforts to prolong-,  ing His Majesty's life until the arrival of  Princess Alix at Yalta, so that0 her ��������� marriage to the Czarewitch may be celebrated  before his death. It is assorted that the  physicians have beeu compelled to turn  their attention to the Czarina, whose miad  was said to be seriously affected by ihe  strain of nursing her husband.  Last night tlie theatres were full, as  usual, and the restaurants were- crowded.  The city bears ils usual aspect, and ..only  eager and excited discussion in the public  resorts indicates the pending evh.

This morning ah official dispatch whb received from Lividia, stating that the Czar  had passed a better night, . and had been  able to sleep "a ������������������ little. This. somewhat alleviated the anxiety, although even the  ollicial builetius are now received with  suspicion. -After this bulletin nothing was  received until 9 o'clock this evening, when  another private dispatch indicated a slight  improvement in His Majesty's condition,  also that he bad a better appetite.

The' appronching completion of the  "switchback1' iroui Frv������ Mile point to  Nelson appears to give lively satisfaction.  AVe should not be surprised to see, when  it is finished, a great deal of traffic  passing over it which is not generally  anticipated at present. About a year  ago on the completion of the line., to  Five Mile Point there seemed to be  some danger that the promoters would  receive back from (lie government their  deposit of $25,030 for the line as then  constructed. But certain property holders and merchants, whoso interests  and those of the town were identical,  were of opinion that a line which passed  "Nelson Lon the mountain side 000 feer,  above the town did not comply with the  special Act of the company. A memorial,  signed by everyone of importance in  Nelson except three, was forwarded to  ; the Premier, praying him to withhold  the return of the deposit. ($25,000) until  the line was completed to" Nelson. It is  directly owing to -that petition that the  "��������� line today is being completed right into  . the town. Among the signatures was  that of John Houston. He signed the  petition on a Wednesday, his only objection, which had some reference to the  relations between Mr. Corbin and the  local merchants, being removed when  he saw the signatures of the more important of the latter already on the  document. Having thus given it his  support, which in his own estimation is  propably of some considerable weight,  he tiiLiiB round on the following Satur-  da-yitnd"in_tlle^  "blackguards the thing up hill and down  dale." Theie was no coming back to the  promoters of the petition saying that"he.  had changed his mind or found  out something which. he .did,, not  know before and requesting his  name to be removed. HeY gave the  petition* on Wednesday, his unqualified  support and on Saturday sought to tear  it and the reputations of its originators  to rags. Fortunately for Nelson Mr.  Houston's rage is worth about as much  as his support, the_petition ,was listened  lo, its prayers .acquiesced .in, return of  "Ao deposit refused by the government  until (he real and intended completion  of the work had been accomplished and  in-a short lime passengers and goods  from Spokane willnlightin the streets of  Nelson.. From this bit of history one  .learns not always to put implicit trust  in the opinions of the Tribune or its  Editor,  weeks ago we made an arrangement to  have a long telegram with all the latest  news sent to us.on the Friday in each  week for publication in our Saturday's  issue. During these seven weeks the  line has only boon working once on  Friday, when we received a message of  COO words. Similar messages had been  handed iu every week, but could not he  transmitted. Again we are supposed to  receive a daily telegram giving the price  of silver and lead. During last month,  September, which has 30 days, we received only 12 telegrams.. No doubt  other people's experience is similar to  our own. So irregular a service cannot  expect full public support. But then  the whole thing is fundamentally wrong.  The telegraph service ought to be in the  hands of the government, not in those  of a private company. We notice in the  report of the Survey Department that  they desire to follow the admirable system of New Zealand. It would be well  if Canadians could only have some experience of the way postal and telegraph  matters ai e managed throughout Australasia. They would not be long then  in abolishing the rotten and incompetent  services to which now they so patiently  bow their necks. It is fair to add that  the frequent interruptions to the line  are in no way the. fault, of the local  officials, we have always found them  energetic in carrying out their business  and anxious to make the service as useful to thc public as possible.  TELEGRAPHS.  Our contemporary the Nakusp Ledge  states that it cost the C. P.R. $11,000  to build the telegraph line from Revelstoke to Nelson via the Slocan and that  recent gales-and fires-have cost them  $3,0C0 more. The authorities complain  that the line does not pay, or to put it in  another way that each individual office  does not pay. Nelson, it appears, pays  and New Denver has just begun to do  so, but Three Forks, Kaslo" and Nakusp  are still on the losing side. Our view of  this matter is that it is not.necessary for  each little office to be self supporting.  The line should be judged as a whole or  otherwise some of the smaller towns  could not expect to have the benefit of  telegraphic communication. We believe  that if the line were more permanent it  would pay better.   For instance seven  We regret to see that our contemporary has had the bad taste to hash up  the story about a morganatic marriage  of the Duke of York, which has been  authoritatively denied. It is not to be  supposed that the Editor of the Tribune  invented this story himself but as its  souiceis not acknowledged, ^according  to all newspaper, custom, we should  have to consider it so if our neighbour's  habit of stealing, matter from other  papers without acknowledging their  authorship was not well known. Again  the story is so full of palpable errors  that it might easily be tne work of a  man who knows nothing about the subject he is writing upon. What would  Mn. John Houston think of us if we  deliberately published some scandalous  lie about him which we well knew to be  false ? What would our leaders think ?  They would have every right to put us  down as cowardly liars and to look upon  evei ylhing we wrote as false and un.  trustworthy. And yet this is no more  or less than the Tribune has done. It  has printed a vile scandal about our  future King, a man about whose honour  the whole nation is jealous, well knowing that story to be false and actually  printing at its head the authoritative  dehial-whieh-it-receiv-ed-lrom-the-P-RiNGE-  oi' Wales himself. ,:  Some time ago'we had to chastise, the  Tribune for its cowardly habit of jumping on a man when he was down. We  regret that we have again to reprimand  it lor its breach of, true journalism in  wilfully publishing false and malicious  scandals. The public which reads the  Tribune is a British public, and we hope  we know them well enough to be sure  that they will appreciate the publication  of this stoi'v at its true value.  'THE CZAR, OF RUSSIA.  There is no longer any doubt about the  serious illness of the Czaii. The latest  reports'state that.Hrs Majesty is suffering  from cancer of the kidneys aud that his  life cannot last beyond a few weeks, perhaps only'a few days. ,.       '       .j  Th������ impending death of no other sovereign iu the world could give rise, to so  much anxiety and uncertaiiiity as that of  the Czar. The foreign. relations of any  other country would scarcely be affected  by the death of its ruler, because, they are  to a large extent based on a diplomatic  principle settled by the representatives of  the people themselves, and hardly- changing p.ven with a change of ministry. But  in Russia the Czar is absolute. He: is  practically his own foreign minister, and  he is responsible to no parliament. Peace  or war is dependent on his will, and his  will only.  Russia is the great element of disturbance in European politics. Its ambitious  aud powerful nobles see in a great war the  only bulwark that may be likely to ward  off "the flowing tide of Nihilism that  threatens to sweep them and their privileges from the face of the earth. In the  East, from, the Dardanelles to Behring  Straits the interests of Russia and Great  Britain clash at every point.   In  Alex,  andeb III the world has recognised a  lover of peace and it is generally felt that  it is owing to him that the frequent little  quarrels between England aud Russia  have been amicably settled. Will his successor resemble him? AVill he not only  strive to preserve peace but will, he have  wit and power enough to subdue the turbulent war party that exists amongst his  Nobles? These are the questions that are  exciting the Stock markets oi! Europe and  which envelope the fate ol the Czar with  more than ordinary interest.  CHINA.  It is possible that one result of the  war in the east may be the further  opening up of the Chinese Empire to  outside trade. v.It is not likely that  if Japan succeeds if? getting her knife  into the tightly closed shell of the  Chinese oyster and partly wedges it  open that the rest of the nations standing around will miss the opportunity of  slipping in a pebble, in the shape of a  new convention, to keep it permanently  open. ��������� There are 400 'million people iu  China of whom it is safe to say that not  one tenth have any dealings at all with  the outside world or use any of its pro.-  ducts. If only those remote millions  can be roused to a state of, requiring  European and American goods trade  will get such an impetus that it has not  felt for a long time.  means a necessity for a  larger  coinage,  and the   coinage   of  silver.  Increased  trade  China  is   chiefly  INSOLENCE.  There is a growing tendency among the  manufacturing public to getadvertisements  for nothing.

London, Oct. 18.���������The Shanghai cort  respondent of the Central News says- tha-  the Chinese government is making great  efforts to raise a domestic loan, offering  seven per cent, interest. Several millions  have been taken already.  Tlie work on the fortifications ot "Wei-  Hai "Wei is pressed forward with feverish  haste. The old forts have been streugtlm-  ed, new ones are goiug up, and all the  weaker points are being covered with  earthworks. Troops are concentrating there  rapidly, but many of-them are indifferently  equipped. The garrison is thoroughly  alarmed for the safety of the port and  sensational rumors as to an approaching  attack are set afloat almost daily. The  commander has good reason to expect  an  ; attack from the Japanese soon.  A rebellion has broken out in the district  round'Foo Chow and peaceable persons are  coming into the city by hundreds. The  fear of a Japanese attack has increased  recently and more torpedoes and mines  have been laid in the bed of the Min. The  river has been so carefully fortified that  navigation has become dangerous. On  Wednesday a junk struck a torpedo  and  ��������� -was blown, to  pieces.   Most of the crew  ���������were drowned.  BHITISH MEDIATION.  London:, Oct. 18.���������The Daily news wilJ  publish to-morrow this semi-official" statement : "A day or two after the cabine^  council, China informed Great Britain tha  she was prepared to negotiate for peace on  certain terms. Great Britain made overtures to the powers on a new basis of  negotiation and asked Japan whether the  terms of such would form the basis of  negotiations for peace. Japan did uot  reply-definitely, but has.not rejected the  proposals. Tbe majority of the powers are  in accord with Great Britain, and there is  a likelihood that, others will assent. The  interference is purely diplomatic aud is  offered to both combatants in the friendliest  spirit."  PARLIAMENT OP JAPAN.  ���������;���������' London,   Oct.    18.���������A   dispatch   from  'Hiroshima,   Japan,   says:     ''A session of  parliament was held  here   to-day.     The  speech from the throne was delivered by'  the Mikado in  person.   His Majesty said  :he had decided to convene an extraordinary  session and had given   directions to his  ministers to submit for the deliberation of  the diet a bill providing for increased expenditures for the army and navy, an important matter.    He declared that he was  greatly pained that China should have forgotten her duties in  regard to  the maintenance of peace in the east in conjunction  with Japan.    But as she brought about the  present state   of   affairs," continued   the  Mikado,  "and  as hostilities have begun.'  we will not stop until we shali have attained  our objects."    He hoped that all his'subjects in the empire would co-operate with  the government to restore peace by means  of a great triumph for the Japanese arms.  It is still doubted   that the   Japanese  have landed anywhere in China.  A Shanghai dispatch reports that the  Japanese at the Yalu river tried to surprise the Chinese under cover of darkness,  hut failed, and retired after desultory firing  -at^long--range._l/rhe_Chinese___asAert^_that.  they inflicted loss upon the Japanese advance guard.  New York, Oct. 17.���������The Herald's Shanghai correspondent cables as follows: Fifteen thousand Japanese troops, under  Field Marshal Oyama, are encamped across  "Regent's Sword promontory, to the north  of Port Arthur, and within sight of that5  naval stronghold. They are waiting for  a favorable moment to move forward, while  outside the port the Japanese cruisers are  . ready to intercept all retreat to seaward.  Sung Kwei, the emperor's father in-law,  has reached Shan Shai Kwan, the place on  the Gulf of Liao Tung, where the high road  frcm the coast to Pekin begins. He takes  chief, command, and will try to prevent  the lauding of a force of the eueniy at this  point, which possesses great strategic im-  " portance.  A serious split has occured at Pekin between Mr. O'Connor, the "British minister,  and Count Cassini, the Russian minister.  -All the foreigners still remaining iu the  capital have received peremptory orders to  leave. The negotiations for peace have  collapsed. '������������������   .  London, Oct. 17.~-Secrelary McCarthy,  of the Chinese legation, declares that  China has not assented to any proposals  between thatcountry and Japan.' '-.  Yokohama. Oct. 17.���������The steamer Moy-  une, recently purchased in' England by the  Japanese has arrived. Although the Chinese warships were on the look-out for her,  she had no difficulty in eluding them.  . London, Oct. 19,���������A Shanghai dispatch  says 500 troops accompany the viceroy of  Hii Kwaug province to Pekin. Steamers  arriving at Shanghai "report eight Japanese  warships cruising southeast Of the Shang  Tung promontory. A letter from Tien Tsin  '^reports 30,000 troops have arrived from  various provincts. It is expected that by  the end of the month 100,000 troops will  have arrived, 48.000 cavalry arnviug from  the different provinces of Shin King and  Kirm.  The first instalment of German rilies has  arrived at Tien Tsin.  besides gambling; but it is one of the  strongest, most insidious of the moral reformers' foes. It lurks in gilded aud uu-  gilded pleasure resorts. Like a baneful  parasite, it fastens itself upon the most  invigorating recreations, and infecting  them with its poison of greed and meanness and theft, soon degrades 'iouocent  amusements to the plaue of criminal pursuits. If the closing ot gambling dens and  the imprisoning of professional gamblers  would exterminate the vice, the work ol'  the crusaders were easy; but the gambling  spirit has so pervaded the world of sport,  that the reformers have sot themselves to  perform"tho difficult task of weeding out-  the tares without injuring- the wheat.  To waste words disputing about the  essence of the wrong in gambling, even to  adduce an excuse that the simple mouse  willingly rims into the claws of the cat,  will neither satisfactorily explain away the  evils resulting from the practice, nor account for the degradation of every amusement that admits of gambling. Condemnations of the regular business of gambling  would be superfluous. , As a profession, it  is not as honest and straightforward as  theft; it masks under tha garb of amusement, or other cloak of apologetic explanations, and commits a sort of mermeric or  hypnotic robbery. Its influence on tbe  players is just what would be expected  when men make either a recreation or a  profession of the practice of taking other  .people's property without giving anything  in return.  Even the association with gambling has  practically killed many forms of recreation.  What but the influeuce of betting has degraded boxing, to nn exhibition of brutality, has almost taken baseball from amateurs, and has brought the turf into disrepute? Lacrosse is going ihe same way;  cricket "aud those sports in which women  participate have hitherto escaped and may  hope to remain free from it. It has been  said that Americans are incapable of enjoying sport purely as sport, but turn all  recreations into a hard working, money-  making business. It would be true to say,  that iu the United States the gambling  spirit strives to get possesion of every  popular amusement, and as soou as that  influence is felt, the amateur athlete must  give place to the professional, and invigorating sport to exhaustiug excitement. Altogether the crusaders have set themselves  to a very difficult task. They may not be  able to pull up the evil root and branch;  but after the crusade, the vice will scarcely  dare flourish in broad day-light."���������Manitoba  Free Press.  BRITISH   COLUMBIA COAL..  A special from Port Townsend to the  Seattle P. I. says: The navy department persists, in .discriminating against  the Washington coal mines and in the  interestof the British Columbia collieries.  The ship Highland Light has been engaged by the government to take 30!)  tons from Comox and 1,700 tons of coal  from the Depai tare bay mines to Honolulu for the use of the United States  naval vessels. The lowest amount of  wages paid to laborers Io got 2,000 tons of  coal from the mine to tide wateri'or. ship  meat, as estimated by numerous experts,  is $3.15 a ton. That means that over  "$6';(K)0-"is^i-ftmi"IlyTtaI*.Jpn���������away-i,i,oni--thG-  coal miner's of the state of Washington  by the United States government and is  given to the cheap labor classes of  British Columbia, which include a large  number of Japs and Chinese, who wort  for wages that are 15 per cent, lower-  than is paid in the.Puget sound collieries.  W. B. Dunning, past assistant engineer, United States navy, was sent  north by Secretary of the Navy Herbert to negotiate for several thousand  tons of coal to-be-shipped to Honolulu  and Mare Island for naval purposes.  For the Bearing sea naval fleet alone the  United States paid the owners of the  Coinox "mine $100,000 for coal. The  consumption of British Columbia coal at  the Mare Island navy yard increased  that sum to $000,000. Had an American  policy been pursued, of that sum fully  $40,000 would have been expended  among the miners of the state of Washington. ;.  NOTICE.
