Ottawa, May 12.���Tbe peculiarly distressing circumstances attending the
death of Dalton McCarthy, Q. C, M.P..
gives the event which all Canada mourns
today, an atmosphere of pathetic sadness
On Friday evening last, but five short
days before he died the deceased statesman was in his ��� seat ia the House of
Commons, iu tbe full enjoyment of tbat
splendid physical activity and magnifi "
cent intellectual vigor which has alwa>s
characterised him. Returning to Toronto- spend the Sabbatb> with hi3 family,
as was bis wat, he started on Suritiay
evening from his home to oateh the night
train -for the Capital again and in lees
than an boor, was brought baok bleeditig
and uoconcious, from injuries received
in ao accideut oaased by the bolting of
tbe horse be was driving���injuries from
which be never rallied but which proved
fatal witbio 72 hours.-   ���
Tbe personal interest felt in bis condition during those three brief days by all
classes of the community bas not been
equalled in tbe case of any Canadian
publio man since the'memorable illness
ot tbe late Sir John Macdonald* Anxiety
to learn tbe latest report was manifested
everywhere, and, whether in the corridors of tbe Commons, in tbe hotel rotundas, oa the streets, or iu the home, the
solicitude was universal and today it is
succeeded by a heartfelt sorrow as widespread and sincere.
Tbe scene in the Commons when the
piflmier made the sad annoaocemaut, will
be long remembered.
Attracted by tbe prospect of ao animated
debate on that dead issue���the Manitoba
school question���that cause of bitter contention and party division in which tbe
dead statesman bad taken so active and
effectual a part snd in connection with
wbiob-bis name and memory will always
be prominently associated���the House
was unusually well filled and tbe galleries presented a more animated appearance than bad occurred st auy previous
sitting tbis session. Mr. Bergeron, tbe
conservative member for Beauharnois
bad entertained tbe assemblage since tbe
commencement of the evening session
with a lively harangue on the alleged
action of the government in opening negotiations with Rome, during whieh be
charged that the school question was not
settled but io a worse position today
than ever. His remarks bad been met
with much good natured banter across;
tbe floor and the cheering and oonnter-
cheering had for an hour or more contributed to create an unusually lively episode.- The speaker' had concluded at a
few mitiutes to 10 o'clock and every ejre
oentred on Sir Wilfrid Laurier as he rose,
apparently to reply. The first half dozen
'words; tbat fell from bis lips, however,
were like a bolt from the blue, for while
the worst bad beeU feared by many, the
afternoon bulletins-.from "Toronto bad
been brighter, and at that particular
moment no one within bearing of the
premier was anticipating; the dread
announcement; -Instantly- an intense
hush pervaded tbe chamber, which a
moment before rang witb laughter and
echoed witb vigorous plaudits, while
everyone leaned forward "td catch the
subdued words .of tbe prime minuter.
His tribute was. eloquent in.its brevity
and simplicity' and was:nttered in:tones
tremulous witb deep feeling. In words
equally touobing, aud eviboing tbe
strongest emotion. Sir Charles Tupper
added to and endowed-the remarks of
tbe leader of tbe government and after a
few words from IIon.'N.- Clarke Wallace,
wbo bad much to do witb the.deoegfteel
member in the politioal arena of late
years,' the House adjourned in reverential silence. - Canada's'loss in tbe premature death of ber distinguished son is
great, and it was preeminently fitting
that her sense of* her bereavement.should
he thus emphasized by ber legislators iq
Parliament assembled.

New York, May 18.���A special  to the
Herald.froni Washington fays: "Great
Britain evidently is preparing for a crisis,
which is expected to occur iu the far east.
Official information which has been receive*.! tit  the naval department  shows
that slie is buying up great quantities of
coal in the fnr western statee, and -Storing it in her naval yards at Esquimalt
The cause for Great Britain's  action is
not known   in   naval  circles   but it  is
thought tbat the British government"desires to have on hand a large supply of
fuel, which can be used by her squadrons
in Asiatic waters iu case the situation in
the far east should be productive of war.
Because  of   tbise   purchases by Great
Biitain tbe price of coal has gone up and
the navy department has been comnelled
to pay a higher rate per ton than:^heretofore.   For   the   purpose   of preventing
dealers from taking, advantage of  this
the government hns for the benefit of tbe
navy department,determined to store eoal
of its own at Paget Sound points nnd
Secretary Loua' bas  directed   civil  engineer Eudicott to build ooal ehftft at
these  points.    It is proposed to keep
5G00 tons, all ready  on   band,   eo tbat
ships may u*. t suffer any embnrres taunt
or delay in coaling, when  put   into tbe
navy yard at Puget Sound for repairs or
docking. .     .
NEW SPANISH CABINET!
Moi)tr6al, May i8^-Parties of "Englishmen nre still. arriving here by the St.
Lnwrei.ce route, bound for the Klondike.
The great : rush, however, is evidently
over for the season. There can be little
certainty as-to the actual number of
those who have proceeded to tbe Klondike from all parts of the country daring the past four months. Cut rates
up6o railways doubtless proved a strong
stimulus. Ouly a moiety of those who
reached Vancouver at the reduced fares
were able to proceed to the north. Tbe
C. P. R. conveyed-many, thousands from
the east bat'tbeir'final destination eoald
not easily be traced. What is certain, is
tbat the C. P. li during tbe past four
months conveyed thirty thousand persons from Vancouver to Wrangel by
steamers. Of this enormous number it is
on reoord that only a small portion, bave
retartied an far as Vancouver.
