In thcsuppleiuciiliiries  the only point not coneooded has lieen  to raise the grant for fire protection  here to us much as we certainly  oii|i~ht to have iu view of our having to  maintain two fire brigades her?. Nor  is; there any grant for Hre protection  for Trout Lake City. '-.On the other  hand the very satisfactory grant of  $0,000 has heen made for" the much  needed waggon roael from Revelstoke  to the head of the Canyon, a, grant  which marks the first stride on the way  tn mi effectual settlement uf Uie transportation difficulties under,which the  development of (he Big Bend country  has so long suffered. Trout Lake City  is to geH its school and the waggon  road up Albert Canyon to lie assisted  to the extent of $3,000.

That attempt- was  ,the* last effort of tbe policy" of shilly  shally and iinpiogressivciiess to  frustrate (he' wish of .this community for the incorporation of  the town. Like all their .-.either  attempts it is (loomed to failure.  Itis time then for the people of this town  to makeup their minds that tbey wi.l  very shoi tly he c-rilled upon tu elect, a  council to run their ail'.iirs for the balance of the year. A g'-eut deal depends on the kind of men elected to  ollice for the first council. It is essen-  tial'to the future welfare* ofllevelstoke  that xve do not elect on it men inclined  to-it-poliey-of��������� large-expend iturevbig-  -Alurit"*. anel extravagant ielens gener-  nlly. We want men with a sufficient  stake in the toxvn to bring it forcibly  home to them lhat. it is to large extent  their own monoy which they are expending nntl lint'homebody else's.  Another point I o which every well  wisher of this place will direct his  efforts and that is to try aud bring it  about thnt incorporation, instead of  intensifying, as there is no doubt it is  naturally apt, to do, will extinguish any  lingering ill feeliiig.-iud jealousy.which  may exist, botiveen the two ends of  this toxvn. These absurdities are* unworthy of sensible men nnel no good  to anybody can possihlycnme of them.  By tlie exercise of a little common  sense and mutual concession at this  pm ticului- juncture all this buck', number nonsense may perhaps be happily  buried for ever. It ought not among  practicel men to be very difiicult to  strike out. some method by which at  one and lhe same time the composition  of the council shall he arranged in such  n way that the various interests of the  town shall all be fairly represented  and the candidatuie of irresponsible  aspirants headed off. These matters  will be found in the end to warrant  some interest and attention.

DROWNED  IN  CARNES  GREEK  Harman Knorr Swept to His  Death in  the Raging Torrent.  The Herald regrets to announce a  fatal accident which occurred last Sunday at the mouth of Carnes Creek.  Harman Knorr, who together with G.  C, McGregor and Frank Fritz left here  a week ago, ns rep'ni ted in the Herald,  for Pence river bv the Big Bend route  was the victim.. The party were tracking up the river with their boat in  front and a Peterborough canoe towing  behind. At the mouih of Carnes  Creek, the creek is divide'cl into two  reaches by a bar. They had got acroi-s  the first reach, McGregor and Fritz  were on the norlh shore with the; rope*  and Knorr on the bin*. As they pulled  the boats off from the bar. Knorr got  into the canoe and seated himself  astraddle on the siern of it. There* is  a riffle at. the mouth of the creek and  the trackers were holding the boats  up to meet it. which caused the limit  to send a wash on to the canoe, which  liegnn lo roll aud ship water nnd  finally upset Knorr and her load into  the water. Knorr scarcely seemed- to  make nn effort to cling to the canoe.  He held a paddle in his hands, with  which his partners saxv him try to laud  on a bar loxver down, but the?forcn of  the water was too great and be was  swept rapidly out into the main body  of the Columbia and lost to view.  Messrs. McGregor and Fritz came into  town -to: report tbe occurrence this  morning nnd nrent thcCentral.'

He Discusses the Political Situation and  Declares for Independency.  Colonel E. S. Topping, the father of  Trail, wns in Rossland for a few hours  ?'esterdny. The colonel is taking a  ively and _oninicn_l_~.li* interest in the.  approaching elections. Speaking of the  situation to The Miner, the colonel  said:  "I am pleased to see that a spirit of  independence is liecoming very manifest in the attitude of the electors of  Kootenny, and I hope this feeling will  continue to spread. In my opinion it  would be highly desirable, to see'nKiore  attention given tn the advancement of  the welfai*e of Kootenay rather than  the welfare of either the Government  or the Opposition party. So far as lean  ascertain the Government will be. returned to power, but with-'a minced  majority.? This, however, should not  cause the people of thiselistriet to  truckle to Government influence. On  the either hand I t-onsidei- it would he  little short ofmadness to support tbe  Opnositioii."  Colonel Topping's popularity in the  Trail Creek division will make him a  factor nf no little importance in the  next general election. ,. ���������  -    \t    .;   ^ief"Despatch_'*.". \    -.  An.

To the Editor of the Herald:  Dear Sir.���������You are doubtless aware  that tbe govornuientof British Columbia has placed a sum of $1,000 in the  current estimates for the eslablish-  iner.t of a system of travelling libraries.  The system mny be briefly described  as follows: _ A .certain, number in _a  commimit.y,"25 adults, sign a-petition"  (a copy of which is enclosed) asking  for ,-i library to be seiit to a designated  address. Tliey agiec to pay the transportation charges, if any, to provide a  suitable place for its reception, to select  a librarian to take charge of tbe books  and act ns librarian (free of charge to  the government.) to become responsible for the due cnie of the books, and  to forward thei library to a designated  address, at the end of three months at'  which time the library will be replaced  by another lot of books, and so on.  The hooks will be sent in a locked  case in which tbey have tei re. main.a nil  will be accompanied by a key, a set of  rules and a catalogue for lending purposes. They will include works of  special interest and instruction -to  fanners and miners, together with a  limited munberof well selected volumes  of n general character���������some of them  for hoys and girl".  As a number of cases are required  and the appropriation is limited, every  petition must be accompanied hy the*  cost eif the case, $0.00, but no community will ever be required to pay  for more than one. In case alibiary  for any reason cannot be forwarded  the money will be refunded, and in the  event of there being a greater number  of applications than can he filled, the.  locality which is the most suitable will  be selected. It i.s anticipated that all  requests cannot lie acceded to at first,  but the best arrangements possible  will be made. It.is suggested tlmt in  places that where farmers' institutes  are established the secretary of the institute should be selected as librarian,  and in mining the Mining Recorder.  As the province i.s large and there  aie many communities to be served it  is proposed, as is the custom where  travelling libraries have been established, to accept contributions to supplement the appropriation for (hat. purpose in the way of books, magazines.  toe. In all cases acknowledgements  will be made and due credit given.  ���������In order to eiu-ourage. others in this  work, which is iii tendedfor the general  benefit, I have decided to donate to the  fund 100 copies of the Year Book of  British Columbia, published by'myself,  sending one or more copies with each  library 11s a book of reference on provincial matters. ?  The commissioners of the library anticipate that, as several have already"  vohinteered to assist iti^the jvn-y indicated'there will be ageneroiis response,  and that the efforts now, being put  forth may meet with success. It is a  movement in which all can help.  Yours faithfully,  R. E. Gosnell,  The   Silver  Cup   and  Sunshine Mines.

May 10.���������There seems to  be a general disposition on the part of  the Spanish officialdom to make Admiral Montijo the scape goat of the  Manilla disaster, and so cover tlie*ir  oxvn indifference and supineiiess, whicli  nlone is responsible for the catastrophe.  Montijo hims.ilf bad repeatedly pointed  out to the Spanish marine depart ment  tbe obsolete and inefficient character  of the ships, guns and forts nt his elis-  nosal for the defence of the Philippines,  but his remonstrances were,unheeded.  He was fully expecting Duxvey's at tack.  In fact the squadron had just returned  from a patrol cruise looking for the  American fleet. But he knexv perfectly  well thnt he was outclassed and out-  weighted beyond hope by the modern  guns and ships of the American Pacific-  squadron. He wns eompletely nt his  opponent's mercy. His guns could not  carry far enough to reach the American ships, which simply kept off and  fired into the Spanish "fleet till there  was nothing left of it but a dozen  burning hulks. The Americans xvere.  in no more danger than if they  were pigeon shooting. The Spanish  simply could not get .back - at  them. All they eoulel do, as brave  men. xvas to die'and that they did. It  is simply an insult to our common  sonse_ to read the shrieking glorifications of the American press over, such  a piece of work as this. There has not  been a seailght during Ihe present  century over which .there was less to  cackle about.  But the most interesting question to  which the result df Dexvy'.*, exploit  lends up, is what is going to come of it?  The only possible solution seems to he  that the United States will have to  hold and .administer the Philippines  in future themselves. They cannot  abandon theni to savagery "or to the  first comer, which chooses to grasp  them nor etui they very well band  theni -back to the teiid**r meieies 'of  Spanish misrule. There are several  European nations would like them.  Germany for instance or France. ' But  the United States are not fightingthis  war for tlie aggrandizement of nations  .whose--unfriendline~3s recent ' events  have '-so "completely exposed,. ' Nor  would Great Britain care to see Germany or France* in possession of these  islands. Great Britain does not want  them herself, but she tines'nut want to  "see any other poxver except herself or  the United States, have theni. The  force of circumstances will compel the  States tokeeptheui and that will mean  that' she will have to lake up her role  among the powers of the world, which  is just the very thing which Great  Britain is desiring to see her do.  There are at present only two civilized  c*mpires controlling, the real destinies  of the world. These^nre Great Britain  and Russia. ' Germany and France  keep making spat-domic efforts- tei  maintain themselves'iu the first" rank  but the conditions of (he contest doom  them to constant and inevitable failure.  Their efforts only tend to spoil ' the  real game and irritate the real players.  But the United States, which is really  iinothej*_linnnflde .colonization power,  likeT'Grellt^'Britaiii^irifcl^HiissiiCr^i-.iir  now. if she chooses, enter lhe list as  the third member of the great .triiiin-  'virate, iu whose hands will for tbe  future lie the fate of the world. She  can either take up the responsibility  now and by doing so make an effectual  stroke for "the peace of the world and  for liberty and civilisation, or she can  selfishly shirk the the task and so per-  lfnps precipitate a gigantic conflict the  enel of which even to herself cannot be  foreseen, but nf xvhich the inevitable  accompaniments will he too terrible ior  contemplation. This Spanish business  is onlv tbe curtain raiser for the greatest world drama, oyer acted on the  stage of the glolie* sini e Trafalgar and  Waterloo left the 01 b nf empire in the;  mailed hand of England.

WED ESN DAY,  IMAY     IS,     1S0S  MEDICINE HAT  A visitor to Medicine Hat. especially  one lamiliar wilh the toxvn in the.  early clays, but who has not visited it  for some vears. isstruckwith lhe great  number of handsome dwellings, the  homes of a large number of well-to-do,  people, the result of industry-and  thrift.  ' The buildings'in the busiuess patt of  the town haye not kept pace with the  lesidential -quarters, although the  merchants have perhaps adopted the  better policy of keeping their uioney  in their business instead of- investing  it in expensive buildings. But  the time is fast approaching when the  front streel will rei-uire a different  and a better class of stores. Of course  the prosperity that Medicine Hat  enioys is due principally to the pay  roll that the C.P.R. have established,  but the country around is being settled up by small ranchmen, who are  making a success of the. business, and  there will be yearly a large number of  beeves turned out.  A movement has been on the tapis  for some time to have the town incorporated so that a spstein of water  works and electric light can be put in.  but the heaviest pioperty. holders are  determined to have a clause inserted  .if possible presenting nny council  granting a bonus to uny corporation  tor any purpose whatever. It is proposed "to pipe the natural gas from the  well a sufficient distance up the river  and utilize it as fuel for a pumping  system that will be able to pump the  water to a reservoir on top of the hill  and then distribute throughout the  town. When this is done it is safe to  say lhat Medicine. Hat will have a  , linger proportion of well keptgnrdens,  lawns, and trees according to its population, than any other town iu the  - territories.   -.-.���������. . _.   Besides the large number of good  houses now in the town theie ate at  least _0 more under contract anil one  contractor in the town reports $10,000  worth of contracts that he himself has  booked. The C. 1?. It. garden in the  town ha_ been an object lesson to Unpeople ot Medicine Hat and should be  lu the entire population of the west as  au example of what can he clone by  h proper system of cultivation whether  in tree culture, horlicullure or market  gardening.  A crying want of the toxvn at present is a lirst clas*. hotel as the ixvo  hotels iit present located there, while  having served the wants of ihe public  well in the prist, have become too  small to accommodate the greater  number of guests* who now lind bust-1  iie&sin the growing toxvn. and a lirst  class hotel would not only be a paying  proposition but <i boon   to   the   toxvn.  In the other different brunches of  business the supply seems quite -ipial  to the demand nnd large stocksof ni-at  class goods are carried.  Gus Gibson a former Calgary boy is  managing the grocery department of  the Medicine Hat Trading Company  and making a success of it.

Sigsby sat- ivitli his feet under his  ucsk and thought. To aid him iu this  mental effort ho chewed tlio end of a  cigar and scowled at a picture in a  small silver framo that stood under the  pigeonholes at tho back of his desk.  It scorned to occur to him that he  could think bettor with his foet up, so  ho pullod out tho slido at the sido oi  his desk aud put thorn up on that;.  After that ho seemed to get on.

"Giimno double four eight���������main.--'  Ho stood sqtiaro on his fecit, threw  back his shoulders and looked contented.  Then ho lowered his head again and  said "yeh" into the transmitter as the-  linmbor was ropeated back and nipped  tho ragged end of his cigar with his  strong, white teeth as ho waited.

Gibson got acquainted with tho baby,  who bad been awakened by tho voices  and sat holt upright on hor mother's  knee and was listening to tho soft voioo  of Mrs. Sigsby, telling him what n busy  mail her husband had got to bo und  how very littlo th~ saw of him nowadays, iviien ho camo down and stopped  in thn hull to put on his overcoat.

The fascinating study of financial  gain amounts almost to genius in some.  Avarico was the inspiration of one of  onr oxvn grout men, Franklin, whoso  memory is debased by his roputation as  "Poor Richard." The masterpiece of  Balzac is his novol "Buscnio Grande.."  Tho hero, old Grundet, is a miser whose  financial genius amounts to tho sublime  and which Balzac contrives uud succeeds  iu making almost picturesque).  Among tho most distinguished misers  was -Daniel" Ban cor. Upon tho death of  his father Dancer camo into tho cstnto,  which yiolded a good income Ono of  bis sisters lived with him and imbibed  the miserly teachings. Dancer was rc-  mnrkablo i'or tho stylo of his garments.  His coat was mndo of pieces of ovory  lino and texture, collected from tho  streets and ash heaps. His garments  wero hold together by n twist of hay.  Uo uud his sister lived happily in a  hovel, tho pnuelcss sashes of which wero  darkened wilh hoards, nigs and papers.  Soap and towels boing expensive, Air.  Dancer occasionally washed in a pond  and dried himself with sand. Threo  pounds'of coarse beef and 1-1 dumplings  formed thoir menu for years, except  upou ouo occasion, when Providence'  changed tho courso of thoso viands.  Mr. Dancer, walking one day iu  search of bones aud other dolicate offal,  found a dead sheep and carried it home  in triumph. His sister received it ns nn  immediate . gift from heaven. Time  went on, and tho inaiden fell ill. Lady  Temple, a generous neighbor, was so  kind flint Miss Dancer determined to  leave her'������3,000, but she died beforo  tho will could be signed, and her brother  claimed hei-fortune as the price of her  board for 30 years. '.   -  He constantly guarded against thieves  and concealed his gold and bank notes  with the spiders among their cobwebs  in tho cowhouse and in tho holes in  tho chimney, covering,them.with ashes.i  The light of generosity, however, penetrated ono chink of his miserable soul���������  he loved his dog', and while denying  himself bread he allowed his dog a pint  of milk daily with other delicacies. Mr.  Dancer's delight in life was to visit the  holes whero. his wealth was kept and  count it. -_., '���������     '.    -  Iii his seventy-eighth year Dancer  became violently ill, but refused to see  a physician. Again Lady Temple played  the' good fairy at the wretched hovel,  attending him to tho last and was generously rewarded by his immense fortune, which he left to her. ,  It would not be n difficult task to  show the inllnefico of avarico upou nations; tho evils of society, the corruptions of religion and" tho tragedies of  war havo often been instigated and supported by this base passion.���������Detroit  Free Press.

At the present day the practico of  weighting silks by means of astringent  extracts, salts of tin, silicate and phosphate of scda and a variety of other  substances, all moro or less injurious to  tho wear of the fiber, has reached such  a height that ifc is seriously affecting  tbo trade. This is especially the caso as  regards black silk, but fabrics of other  colors suffer in tho samo manner.  It used to be remarked that a silk  dross or a silk handkerchief woulel last  a lifetime, and this is almost true for  absolutely pure silk. But in muoh'of  the fabric sold at tho present day there  is not moro than 10 or 12 per cent of  real silk, all rho rest being extraneous  "iri.ittcrnpplied-to"-Iha-fiber-in thedecep-=  tivo process of "weighting."

CUMMINGS BROS.,.,���������  Proprietors,  Q ���������; y  OUR  VOTING  MONEY  WEELLY   LETTER  OTTAWA  FROM  The Work Parliament Has in Hand���������  The Plebiscite���������A Non-Committed  Government���������The Greatest Position  iu the World.  (Sj)ccltil Correspondence.)  Ottawa. May ().���������Most of last week  was spent in voting money for puhlic  uses during next year. The ministers,  when ask'nm fur s'upplie**. are. usually  reijueated to explain in detail how  .thev expended similar voles hist year,  .inc. ho iv they expect, to deal with the  pinpo.se.il icite. This. cntei-hi**ing is  sometimes lively, and olten repent*,  itself. Ministers who have n eloiiii-  neering disposition, or have not tieated  opposition ineuibeis with civility, or  have mismanaged tlieir department  nr conducted public business in a partisan niaiiner, or have been seveiein  the use of the spoil* systi'in, are not  easily to escape the iii(|ui-iinm ot the  committee of supply. Time every  member ran speak as in.my time, as  be likes on each item, so thnt tbe ministers aie entiiely "at the inetcv eif  opposition critic';-*. The way this  works il self out was bhnu n on Wcd-  nescliiv, when tbe Po-*ttii,i_,tc>i-general  l.tboied from the evening until after  ���������sunrise on Thursday over the vote for  theinsicle service'in his department.  Mr. Mulock went home to bieaktasL  utter all without' seeming his vote.  The postm.-i'-ter-geiieial has dismissed  521 postmasters. ,i"d has o~teu in the  House refused information as to the  reasons. The result is that in supply  he has to answer not only all le.ison-  ahle questions, but a great ui.-iny  olhers. On the other hand, ministers  like Sir Richard Cirtxvrighr. who aie  believed to be nioie inst than pruden',  and who aie not accused of lefusing  proper information, gettheirestiniates  through with neatness and despatch.  Nearly a million dollars was placed at  the disposal of the government last  "week.  THE PLUlHSCITE IJII.L  The Government sometimes has to  fight a bill through tin* houses hy slow  stages and with difficulty.   This   was  not   the   history     of  lhe    plebiscite.  Withm   some   six   hour-   after     Mr.  Fisher moved the second reading of  .the, bill   it   had   passed    this   critical  ���������s   slage. had been considered in commit-  l{  tee anel was i e idy  for  the  third and  ) last    reading.     'The    only criticism  oHeied was lor the.purpose ot making  1  the lull useful.    It. was urged by Sir.  Foster that the premier ought at this  time to state what, me he proposed  to  make'of the pomil.it- vote when he got  it.     Did   the  Government intend to  follow  the plebiscite with  a prohibi-  )torvbillin  case  the mnj.irily of the  /vote   xv.is   in   the    aflirui.iti.ve?   This  r> question was  put  to Sir   Wilfrid   bv  many   membeis   in  many  ways, but  without much success.     At -one moment it appeared   that- lhe 'piemier  had given  an  answer,  when "he said  1 jth.it the Government would give elfeet  |*rntho  popular will. ' 13ut   when Mr.  Foster asked whether this meant that  in case ._ majority of the vote cast was  1 "yes",  a prohibition   measure  would  he introduced, he at once declared  "it  meant   nothing   of   the    kind."   The  premier went on   to  say   that' there  would still remain to   be   considered  the question"of revenue, the question  of federal jurisdiction  and   tbe question   ot   compensation.   When asked  whether he would consider the verdict  of a majority nf the vnte cast to be an  oxpressiou of.the will of the puople.  or would  require a   majority   of   the  registered   voters,    or   .whether    he  ���������would require a majority  in  each  of  .he piovince1!,  the   lirst Minister declined to give information. Mr. Fisher  .-fates   that   the   plebiscite  will    cost  S200.000 to $2C0,00O.     Of course it will  ���������cost the people interested in  the campaign a great deal more, in work and  money.    It was urged that before all  this cash   and   worrv   was expended  some assurance ought'to be given tha  the Government would  make us3_o  the  results.     But' the   Pi e~niier~~~~and  Minister of Agriculture did  not look  at it   in 'this   light,   and   the   future  remains, as Mark Twain would say. "a  dai k and bloody mystery."  AMENDMENT   SUOGliSTlil)  Dr. Montague wanted the bill  changed so'that no man would be allowed to vote'more than once. As the  bill stands thousands of voters in  large centres like Montreal and Toronto will be ablo to vote in several  constituencies. It, is said that 2.000  property owners in Montreal alone,  have votes in live tidings. Mr. Davin  iwsked that that the vote be taken nn  the municipal lists which would give  women ratepayers a chance. Mr.  Mills of Annapolis pointed out that  the inclusion of cider among prohibit  ed drinks would cut clown the "yes"  vote. The Minister of Agriculture explains that cider on the ballot means  hard cider, but Mr. Taylor. Mr. Mc-  Cleary. Mr. Moore and other members  contend tbat the bill does not say so  nnd that the farmers will probably  take the ballot at its word.    ���������  THE LADIES   AI'I'EAK  When the discussion was going on  one of the galleries was filled with W.  C. T. U. ladies. They came to Ottawa  bringing the world's petition for prohibition. As they could not go to  Parliament with.this prayer they induced a large part, of Parliament to  meet them at the Dominion Methodist  church. The petition was draped  , jjsiout the interior, and covered a large  jp.vrtnf the wall, gallery rail and other  .available space. Seven million signers aie ..-.presented by this enormous  sireti of piper. The petition has been  presented to Her Majesty at W'nd~or,  ���������andlo members of the Imperial Ministry. It has been to Washinerlon and  was offered there to the president and  congress. No statesman on either side  of the watpr met the ladies in a more  coiirtlv wav than the premier nf Canada did on Tuesday evening. Nor has  any public man made an address in  replv which conveyed Ies* in the wav  of distinct assurance*. Sir Wilfrid  told the women that he was himself  not yet converted to total abstinence  though he was much impi ess-eel with  the* evils of intemperance I In also  explained that he expecti'il Quebi e  Province to vote against prohibition.  -While he made no promii.e'S to tin*  ���������delegate" he assured them of his host  ���������wishes. l>  A (.VhKIt  LETTEI3  Mr. McDougiill. of Cape Breton, anel  Senator Landry have brought to tho  .attention of their respective chambers  a rather remarkable letter written  last November to the caidinal sece-  tary of tin: Vatican by Mr. Ch.nles  Uu-sell lhe Canadian (-overnment  solicitor in London. Mr. Russell, who  is a distinguished Roman (Jalholic, has  several times been at Home in connection with thu Manitoba school question  but this lime he seems to have stated  his case in a letter, a copy of which  has reacheel this country. Mr. Russell  informed Cardinal Ham polio that he  h.ul come to Rome "ac the urgent request ot the Roman Catholic membeis  of the Government and Parliament of  Canada." "We do not solicit. His  Holiness." lie says, "lo t-nticli'in a*  perfect lbe coui'Ossioiis obt.-i neil. but  in his xvisclom he will be pieascl to regard tbein as the beginning Oijiutici-."  One other inteies'ling icquust is made  by the Canadian solicitor: "My instructions," he says, "are to renew to  your eminence lhe desire I bad already  tbe honor tn expi ess to you, that Ins  holiness will bu pleased tu name a permanent delegate 'in Canada." Mr.  Russell xx ent on to explain hoxv eon-  letiient it would be for the Vatican to  always have a repiescntativo at  Ottawa.  r\ H 1.0xv LINK  The last line* steamships will not be  le.idv ii hen the contract lime is up.  The Minister of Trade and Coiiiineice  has given notice of a supplementary  eontiact. The new bargain gives tlie  contiactors until Mny. 100U to get in  readiness for the first sailing.  A   MILITARY MATTER  All inteiesting talk took place over  a (.tovt'i'iiiiient resolution to increase  tlie pay ot the commander in-chief of  tlie Canadian torces from $1,000 to  SCi.OOO. Minister Borden slated that  the pay of the Canadian Commander  xvas lets than that ot the same oflicer  'in single Australian colonies with  lunch stnaller niihtia foices. The pay  here is also less than that of a in.ijor-  geneial in England. The consecjucnce  is that some difficulty is louncl in  s-ec-uring tor Canada the services of an  efficient officer of the proper military  rank. Sir Charles Tupper, while supporting the programme, took occasion  io say that he hoped the increased pay  would not start until Cencr.il Cis-  coigne had depaited. The opposition  leader obseived with energy that Lhe  General had been a signal failure in  the command, and added that General  Gascoigne's conduct in the* Halifax  case and the Slrathy matter had been  a disgrace to Canada. He was glad  that the country would soon see the  last ot him. The Piemier and Mr.  Borden protested against the reflections on an officer wearing the Queen's  uniform, but Sir Charles deel ei-ed that  he had no respect for a cad even  though he wears a red coat." Sir Wilfrid appeare.". to be much shocked,  which .hoxvs, that he lias forgotten  the time xvhen he and his folloxvers  xi ete charging General Middleton with  stealing turs.  NOTES  The Drummond Counties investigation has proceeded a stage, lt has  been explained oy Mr. Gr.onshields  that he holds two-thirds of the S-tOO.OOO  stock of the railwav.

' -  Mr. Mar-inof Prince Edward Island,  made an interesting speech last Monday in snppoit of' the claims of lhat  province lor better linaucial consider  ation. He argue, fnnil statistics that  Prince Edward Island has received  for railway subsidies ai-.il railway construction only .1 quarter as much per  bead as the average in Camilla, while'  the province it'elf has contributed for  railway purposes more than txvice as  much as any other province.  ���������Mr. Tarte's bill for repairs arid ex-  "tensions-made this venr-to-1 he-walks  and pavements on Parliament Hill and  around the Ottawa post office is  ,.$40,000  Mr. Mulnck thinks that he will get  the SS2.000 out ol the newspaper  postage.  Deputy Speaket Brodeur dec ided  last week that iL was parliamentary  foi one member to say nf another that  lie had "constituted 'himself the gutter-snipe of the opposition." The  members on the lelt pointed out thnt  the new rale opened up a great wealth  of abusive epithet of which the best  use would be made. Mr. Fielding saxv  the point and suggested that the  chairman reverse his ruling, which he  did. Mr. Biodeur intimated that  there is no French word for guttersnipe* and be had not supposed the  foxvl's name to be oll'ensive to English  ears.  In the public accounts committee  Major Wcddet burn, of Colonel Dom-  viil-'sregmcnt, and Mr. Barnes, for  the lent of who<~e armory for gve*  years the member for Kings, N.B., got  the $300 mentioned in a previous  letter, cave evidence. Mr. Batnes  testified that the:?300 paid to Colonel'  Domville for him did not reach his  hands, as his rent had been paid year  by vear. Wedderhurn swore that he  had paid the rent annually out of his  $480 allowance for the care of arms,  but had considered himself entitled to  a refund. When Colonel Domville,  M.P., nnd himself were considering  the question of ways and means for  the Colonel's Jubilee expedition, he  offered to give the Colonel the use of  the monev, if the latter could get it  out of the Government. Colonel  Domville has the money yet, but  Wedderburn expects to get it.  THE SILENT CITY.

War news does'nt differ much from  baseball information. - There is the  same comments about the strength of  butteries; similar comments about this  or that man's performance on the field;  some anxiely about certain liases; and  hints about halls cutting the plate.  Coiiimi'sicner Cbipman said at  Vancouver that the H. B. Co. would  build a large store at. Nelson, and in  addition In tbelargesteamers recently  lnult in Vancouver for the Stickine  and Skci'tia trade the company was  i-rce-.ting stores at Glenora and "Teslin  Lake. I. .tensive improvements are  also being made ar Port Simpson, Mr.  Chipinai' has christened one of the  iiexv stcatueis the Strathcona.  The vast circle of the horizon is unbroken, yet, here is no solitude, for birds  in thousands sweep circling about, from  the huge albatross, living past at his (10  milo*- nn hour, to the littlo swallowlilce  Mother Carey.  The scene i'or the timo is peaceful.  Tho thuudciiug storms which lash  ocean's inco into fury and fill tbo air  with huriying wiackand sweeping rain  art) stilled.  But though the surface of the water  is smooth, save for little rippleb. like  those ou the summer face of a river, tho  great bosnuipl" the south Atlantic heaves  in mighty pulsations to the long, rolling  billows which follow in a stately, endless procession and tell of some distant  hurricane past or to come.   .  Above, the great dome of heaven is a  cold, s,teely hlue, flecked here and there  with eleind masses, snow white as Alpine peaks, reflecting in their', shadows  tho colors of ocean "s face.  Tho sinking sun flashes a sparkling  glory ovor the scene, and the great  clone! forms change tiut after tint. As  he declines westward above him shafts  of light shoot up halfway to tbe zenith.  Rolling on the swell lies a boat.  Thrno of its crow appear to live; of tho  others tho living souls have fled.  . Two crouch with bowed heads. The  third, a young fellow in His first manhood, looks'wistfully round. The great  birds flit by him with bright eyes. They  elo not settle yet.  Onco as a great billow lifts .the boat  skyward ho thinks ho sees, far away to  tho cast, a silvery speck. What is it���������a  hhip? Had the God of that cruel blue  sky hoard his prayers? For he had been  praying as few over pray and seemed to  have a feeling that he had' been heard.  Anxiously he waits for a huge wave to  rush past and lift them again to tho  same altitude, but it comes not, and the  sun sets. *  They havo robbed their dead comrades  of tlieir coats, and now tho threo huddle  together for warmth and meager comfort, i'or another awful night is before  them. Will dawn seo them alive? The  neaicst succor is 00 miles away.  * t* _ * n. t> _,  In a highly decorated apartment, half  divan, balf Eitting rocm in appearance,  a thin, w iry man sprawls on a couch,  lie, is smoking a Burmese cboroot, ouo  of a,stock ho laid in last voyage, but he  "does not appear to-Be^in-that"-_alih~  peaceful frame of mind which is necessary for tho full enjoyment of the blessed  weed���������nor is he.*  Captain Abel Cushman of tho American ship Paul Revere has a fine craft  under him, a strong crew, good officers;  has made a smart passage this far, and  yet is greatly troubled. Au hour ago ho  woke from his after dinner nap " 'most  tcared to death." A young man,-a  stranger, had stood over him and said,  "Steer west by south." Eveu when ho  had opened his eyes there stood tho  stranger, who, us the bkippcr lifted  himself up, vanished.  This happoued somo half hour since.  "Waal, I swan to gracious!" said  the captain. "West by south, hey?  Naow, what in thunder did it mean?"  IIo began pacing up and down his little saloon, muttering and thinking.  Many old sea yarns aneiit similar circumstances came into his mind, and a  Etron'g feeling was creeping over him  that he mnst obey this supernatural order. And yet a merchant skipper-does  not care to poso as a fool in the eyes of  his crew.  "What will the boys think?" he muttered. "Cnsh, my sonny, I guess you'a  bewitched." "  His roving oyes fell on a book which  lay on a littlo side table. Aimlessly he  took it np, and as he did'so���������was it  mere fancy?���������again tho voico spoke,  ''Steer west by south." He dropped tho  book, whispering in wonder, "Waal, I  dew!"  The volume had fallen open and lay  at his feet. As he picked i_t up ho saw  it was a Bible.  "Cush," he whispered to himself,  "tbat was spoken on the gorspels."  He turned over the pages and looked  at the fly leaf:  "Eliphalet Coleby. From his loving  wife, Mizpah."  His brows contracted. He was trying  to remember the method of some modern  "sortes" which tbo old women at home  used to practice*���������something to do with  a key.  Presently he ngain muttered to himself, "Thore ain't uo harm anyhow. "  Opening tbe book at random, he laid  it on the table and placed a forefinger  on the open page. Them he looked at  the verse thus selected.  "There came ont two women, and ths  ~~rind was in their wings."  "Wa-al," he whispered, "there ain't  ��������� particlo of E.nso in that!"  Again he turned as if to'walk awav  and looked wildly round. Tho sumo  voice seemod to have whispered in his  ear onco more.  He hesitated no longer. Going up tho  companion into tho glory of the sunset,  he called to the seaman at tbo wheel:  "Hi, youtharl"  "Sir?"  "Sing out to the mote I want him."  In a few moments a stout, red faced  man stopped up. He had no coat on, but  wore a waistcoat cut low, showing a  large expanse) of shirt front, in tho center of which sparkled what might have  boon a diamond. He camo forward fondling a long goatee whiskor.  "D'you want mo, Cap'n Cushinan?"  "Yes.    Put hor round  on tho othor  tack aud stand west by south.''  "Right!" answered Coloby (for he  Was the owner of the Bible), and, turning, he began to shout out his ordois to  '"bout ship!"  "Say, Coloby, your Testament's lay-  In aiound; you'd best tako it." And  Captain Cushman handod him the book,  as though glad to bo rid of such an unreliable guide.  Then as the men began to tumble  along to their stations he again descended to the saloon, softly whistling "Tho  Arkansas Traveler." He began to soliloquize:  "Now am I durned fool or not? Anyhow, a few hours on a west by sou'  course won't do us a power of harm.  Wonder what Coleby thought? I'll have  him on a string directly. Guess if I  hoar niiy more eif them voices 1 shall  begin to think I've got tho jumps. That  Testament wam't worth mueih. 'Women with wind iu their wings!' I guess a  mite more in our wings wouldn't hurt  us. It's powerful near a calm."  On deck the tramp of feet and the  yelling of ( tho men told him that the  maneuver ho had ordered was being  performed.    '��������� .  Again he went on deck. The ship was  "round," and her head lay to tho point  given. **,  "I'll keep her so till daylight, "mur-  mmed the skipper. rt  The mate stepped up and reported  that the command had been executed.  Theie was a twinkle iu Captain Cush-  man's eye us ho answered, "Verygoodl"  IIo xx as amused at the puzzled look in  thu mate's faco. - Dawn was long coming. Kor many hours tho captain of tho  Paul Rcvero had pacod tho clock, lo tho  increasing wonder of Mr. Coleby.  At tbo first gray streak of light he  bad given one short order:  "Send a man ou the topsail yard and  let him keep a smart lookout."  Presently as tho day came-on and the  horizon crept into view he stepped np  to tbe mate. -   ������  "Say, Coleby, I guess you aro wondering whar I'm bound, eh? Wa-al, I'm  seekin Now Jerusalem."  "It don't 'make a mite of difference  to ihe, Cap'u Cushman," retorted Coleby. , "I didn't care' if you was bound  to"��������� -   , "  "On deck tbarl"-_.  A voico high above them stopped the  statement of Coleby's supposititious  port, whioh was possibly in a warmer  and less sereno clime than that of his  commander.  '"Lo!" cried Coleby, looking aloft.  "Thar's  somothin afloat away down  on tho lee bow."  Captain Cushman woke to life.  , "By the geo hokoy!" he shouted.  Then, "What do you inako df it?" ho  yelled up to the lookout.  ' "I can't rightly say. Might be a dead  whalo or a boat. 'Tain't such a mighty  big thing anyhow."  Captain Cushmau sprawled spiderliko  up tho ratlines and, having gained tho  mizzen top, directed his spyglass to the  distant object;  "By thunder, Coloby, thar's a boat!"  In halt an hour two rescued men wero  being tended as carefully as though by  women's fingers. In tho terror of tho  past night the other had crossed tho  river of death.  It was many hours before the younger  of tho two could speak. Then Captain  Cushman interviewed him.  "Guess wo'vo met once before."  '' I���������thought ��������� your���������face���������was���������familiar, sir."  "Aboard this packet?"  '' No. I havo never been aboard here.''  "Guess you have, though, and your  God sent you."  Tho young fellow stared.  "Could you walk into my eal-oon?"  said tho captain persuasively.  "I thiuk so."  "Como right away, then."  They ontcred. Immediately tho young  felloxv's eyes showed recognition of his  burronndiugs.  "Yes," ho said, "I was hero���������when?  I thought thero was a book on that table, and, yes, you wero lying thero  smoking. I must have dreamed it."
