MAV    11.  181IS.  TIIE WAR  One of the unsatisfactory  features of the campaign is the  difficulty of securing . definite  news of the light in Asiatic  waters. While Washington has  heard absolutely nothing officially  it seems probable that Admiral  Dewey has had everything his  own way in the Philippines and  that after subduing the Spanish  lleet with his superior forces he  has taken possession of the islands  in the name of the United-States.  Thi", however, remains to be  confirmed.  While the battle of Manila has  been a comparatively easy victory  it is not to be inferred that the  Americans will so easily sweep  everything before them on the  other side of the world. Not'only  is the Spanish Atlantic squadron  vastly superior to the Asiatic  fleet both in number, strength and  armament, but Cuba"' is solidly  guarded by laud forces and forts  and has a still more formidable  repelling element against invasion  in the yellow fever which is fatal  to new comers. Spain, hts a  military force iu Cuba nearly three  times as large as the .��������� whole  standing army of the United  States. General Blanco has fully  80,000 troops massed ' around  Havana, and while it may be  admitted that the Spanish soldier  is inferior to the American in  arms, training and - fighting  qualities he has the advantage of  being acclimatized and not subject  to being carried off by the fever.  The game of the Spanish is evidently to draw out the Americans  and allow them to land iu Cuba.  They know the effects of the  deadly climate and aie evidently  determined to call it to their aid.  This is .why the Spanish lleet  ���������reniaiued-so-long-at-Gape-Verde  and is still lying low.  CHEAP NURSES  The Cunndian   Lancet and   the  Montreal   Medical Journal    have  been paying their respects to Lsuly  Aberdeen's   new order of  nurses.  The Lancet objects to the unfair  competition   with    the     regular  trained nurses    who have   spent  their time and brains iu obtaining  a profession by nmaus of which to  make an honest  living and   who  are entitled to some consideration.  .  The Victorian  nurses have been  established in Toronto, where'it.is  advertised that their services-may  belhired at from 5 ceu'ts to 50 cents  a "visit.   The 'Montreal    Medical  J.burnal    denounces ,  the    whole  'scheme in uo'uncertain language.  As to the sending of nurses to the  cold fields it points out that there  is both a   moral and   professional  reason    against  it,     The   whole  trouble seems to be that the progenitors of the scheme have been  very ill-advised and though ��������� Lady  Aberdeen's   efforts aro   evidently  well meant, public opinion does not  "catch on."    As a matter of fact,  except  in    isolated    settlements,  there    is    usually    no    lack ' of  deserving     women���������widows    and  others���������who    are    unassumingly  doing   untold 'good   in    tho  sick  room   and   to  whom   the   opportunity of going out nursing is a  welcome aid to making a livelihood  for themselves and their families.  Tho  war  is costing Uncle Sam  $25,000,000 a month.  Ouly    one    Congressman  enlisted lor tbe war.     The  fight best with their mouths.  has  rest  Since the war began they are  eating smaller loaves aud drinking  "smaller glasses., of beer in the  States. So the burden falls on the  just as well as on the other chap.  Fault was found with the late  Government tor delaying the fast  Atlantic service. Now the Laurier  government proposes to give  Peterson & Co. until the end of the  century before the contract is  even commenced.  A very useful publication is  being issued monthly by the  Incorporated Loudou Chamber of  Mines. It is crowded with  statistical information relating to  Australian and Canadiau mines  and mining companies.  WHAT A DIFFERENCE  S-- When  the   Senate   sat  on   the  bold attempt to carry through the  Drummond County railway deal  the government promptly made  other arrangements. When the  Upper House dealt likewise with  the Mann-Mackenzie proposition  the Ministers dropped ic like a hot  potato. The public are naturally  wondering why such lavoritism  was shewn. If tlie government's  ca~e was sound, the Yukon  railway had a do/.en claims on its  immediate attention for every one  possessed by the other scheme.  In the one case Canadians were  alleged to be losing trade and the  only salvation was a railway  through our own country and  that immediately. In the other  case no particular persons or  interests were urgently suffering,  unless it was that the friends of  Mr. Tarte who wanted to sell the  Drummond railway were hard up.  . Why then were Mr. Tarte's  friends so considerately dealt with  while Mann and Mackenzie���������who  had already spent a lot of money  ���������are left to the* consolation of  their unpaid bills?. Can it be that  the latter gentlemen are not yet  "on to" the ways of this "business  is business" ^government? Public  curiosity on this little point is  sufficiently aroused to call for an  explanation.  Iu tho eyes of the Laurier government, Jiho Auditor General ha=  become an"'t)fi'ensive~"parti'/:ah"rand"  Sir Loftis 'Davies openly says so.  Luckily for the oilicial, long  experience has shown the, public  that the severity*of the attacks  upon him is generally proportionate- to the size of , the job he  exposes. The government just  now is very severe.��������� Montreal  Gazette.  Oceau freights are advancing.

Ottawa,   May    2.���������The    franchise  agony is approaching   an   enel.     The  whole of lust week and   nearly   all of  the week before except, private   member's time was spent by  the House in  committee, on   the   measure'.      It was  late lust Friday afternoon when chairman Uiodeur "reported  the  amended  bill to the   Speaker.     It   was indeed  verv much amended.   The   most intimate friend of   Mr.   Filzputriek's  bill  would now have   dilliculty   in   lecog-  nizingthe shattered and   battered   remains of what was   once a promising  bill.   Searching examination  revealed  astonishing disciepuncies   and   eccentricities   which   the    committee    has  struggled to  remove.     The  measure  was introduced as a simple and easy  device for for the transfer to  the provinces of the whole responsibility for  the Dominion tranchisc.    Yet. before  the   bill   was   reported   the Solicitor  General in chai-ge'of it   had   incorporated a clause preventing the provinces  irom disfranchising federal employees,  another to   prevent   the  adoption   of  lists which the provinces might adopt  on the eve of  it  federal election.     A  third making an arrangement of polling places different from   that   established by provincial   law,   while   still  another is   promised   to   provide   for  printing the lists  at   Ottawa.   -Then  aro all departures from the provineise  idea anel it is   claimed   by   oppositioal  mem hers that the new system will not  save the country a   cent  ot   exponsp.  The onlv change is that a part of the  cost is transferred from the Dominion  treasury to the municipality.  DISPUTE!"   TOI'ICS.  A long and earnest discussion took  place over the opposition amendment  to provide an appeal i'roin the revisor  lo a judge. The argument against a  partisan revision was strong .indwell  presented, but the members who made  it were voted down. Another interesting debate arose over the question  whether the juoposud act is constitutional. Mr. llaggart takes .the  ground that while tho parliament of  Canada has the power Lo" adopt the  provincial franchise of-any piiiticul.ir  particular time, it cannot 'delegate to  another body the power to change the  federal franchise ar, its own will. Mr.  Powell iind Mr. Borden also have  doubts on Lheconstitulion.il question,  -but the Solicitor General seems lobe  satisfied Lha fhe is safe. The government got some comfort ouL of a speech  of Sir. Belcourt. who lead a clause of  the proposed constitution of the Australian federation.'assigning the control of Lbe federal fianchise to the  local legislatures. This comfort w.is  afterwards rtidelv taken awiiy by Sir  Charles Ililibert Tupper, who showed  that Jlr. Belcourt was reading from  lbe constitution proposed, in ISO I.  The subsequent conventions'in ISO"  and 1S03 changed all LhaL and trans-  lerred Lbe federal franchise to federal  control, wliere; all other federations  place it. As icmaikcd above,' t.he  franchise bill emerged from committee  with almost every clause altered. ' IL  nnisb now be printed, so that when  the bill comes up for a third rea'cling.  the members may. as a distinguished"  congressman would say, know where  they are at.  A   ~t~-"I~Or..1IEH SNl"I~I"~~l~   OUT  Thiee other public bills of some  general inteiest were before the House  of Commons during the week. A  public bill in the hands of a private  member has a slim chance at tbe best,  and one which tends towards Lhe reduction of public expenditure and  government patronage fares worst ot  all. So when Jlr. McMullen. once a  great man with the Liberal leaders,  proposed to have supervisors appoint-  i*d to inv_sti-Hte the ptiblje offices and  _o cause the "dismissal of all superfluous oflicers and clerks in the customs  post oflice nnd excise service, he made  no head wav worth mentioning. Sir  Wilfrid told" him that he meant well  hut that really the project could not  be adopted just now. Mr. Pateirson.  the Minister ol Custom-, added insult,  to injur}- l.y.tellhig Mr. McMullen that  the re-p'onsibiiity of a-Minister's position had the i-ITecr. of expanding his  ideas. This explained Mr. Paterson's  de.-ertion of his olel friend, hut it was  -no comfort to a private member who  thinks that ho had a better- righL than  ���������Mr. Piter-son to be a minister and so  have his ideas cxpande el.  rOOIt C1IARLTON  Butif Mr. McMullen complains of  the ministers who buried his bill, Jlr.

A COLLEGE CALL.  "Thestories printed about Smith college lately appeal to nie very strangely,"  said a? Harvard man. "Mau is of sc  small a part in it all.,A senior year experience of mine will illustrate.  .. "When I met the girl, I didn't know  she was a college girl. Tho front of hei  waist [was decorated with crazy shapetl  jewelry of various sorts, but I was not  sufficiently enlightened at tho time tc  know that they denoted tlio feminine  life academic. She was a mighty nice  girl. 'She wasn't afraid to wet her bathing suit. ��������� Siie did't mind chasing around  iu tho mud after her own fiddler crabs,  . and, more wonderful still, she wouldn't  even shudder when they crunched as sh.  ran the'hoolc 'through theni. She was nc  stem, analytical, * cold * blooded thing  cither."'You ought to havo heard her  yell when tho fish bit; also, she knew  enough when her baud was squeezed tc  sciucezo'back. I had a very inteiescing  summer of it. In the cqtuso of the season I learned, of course, that she was a  Smith'girl, just as I learned whero she  lived aud who her folks' were and what  her lirst name was aud that she wasn't  engaged to anybody (and never meant  to be)'anel-all (hat sort of thing. The  Smith part didn't'bother me at all. 1  began'to feel that she was a type. The  higher education was tho thiugwomau  had needed all theso years to mako .her  a littlo-more rather than a littlo less  than the augols. '  "At the end of the season my goose  was cooked all right, but I lacked sand.  I wanted time to think it over. I .also  had a sneaking idea that perhaps after  we-had been separated for awhilo the  girl wouldu't be so all fired indifferent  to personal considerations and niy passing tentative expressions'of interest in  our future existence. I asked her if I  could .como up to Northampton to see  her aud if I'couldu't tako her to the  Yale-Harvard football game at Springfield. She fairly grabbed at the chance  to go to tho game. She had never been  to a Springfield g_n:e, sho said, except  with -an Amherst man, and that, of  course, didn't count. It "would be too  awfully jolly, for any use to go with a  Harvard man.       , "  "I suggested that I would like to go  over to Northampton a week or two before >tho game. "Of course sho said I  must. .Tiist at tlio time of the game  thero were so many nienrin i the chapel  -every-morning-that-tliere.was no particular glory in having one there. -But  about two or throo weeks beforo the  game ifc. would be gloriousto have a>  real Harvard man in chapel all' by his  lonesome.  "Somehow this sort of response waE  not altogether* satisfying, but I was too  enthusiastic to inquire toocuriously. Iu  the fullness of elapsed time I, don't  mind telling you that I had somo protty  definite plans about that visit to Northampton. In mcditatn e moments I had  pleasing ideas about certain confidences  I would make to the boys before I ap  peared with th'e girl at the game.  "I went to Northampton.    I arrived j  on a Thursday eveniug.   I went  to the  cottago where sl__ lived.   I waited half  an  hour  beforo sho came dowu.   Theu  6ho appeared with her hat on.  " 'I'm so glad you'vo come,' she said,  'and I'm so. sorry that I havo a voice  club meeting to attend to! Tho president is sick, and I'm the vice president,  so I really havo to go. I'm really awfully late now. You may walk over with  mo if you like.'  "It was about threo minutes' walk.  She told me in tbat time hew to coma  to chapel the next morning.  "I wont back to tho Norwood and retired to the littlo box iu the basement  tbat they could call a cafe and contemplated things. After awhile tho  things' contemplated bocame " lesa  gloomy. I met two Amherst men down  there and told them my experience and  disappointment. They looked at each  other and laughed'a good deal aud said  that it was rather strange, considering  that I was not au Amherst man. They  weie rather bitter about it and not altogether polite, and I went to bed.  "I went- to chapel in the morning.  The girl was -waiting for me in tho  vestibule. I was looked oyer impersonally by COO or mor������ young women as  they camo in, also when they went out.  Then I was told to hurry away like a  good boy and come bock after dinner,  say, about 8 o'clock. I gently intimated  that 12 hours in Northampton was a  lonely prospect. Sho was uxv}ully sorry,  of course, but thero was ������n especially  important basket ball practice that afternoon. If she staid away, she wouldn't  be allowed to play in tbe match* game  the next day. Might I como to watch'  the practice? Good gracious, no 1 Men  were never'allowed except at match  ganios, nud theii only the very olde������t  and marriedest moinbors of tho faculty.  -.."I went over to Amherst and h?.iv*  some follows I kuow over there. Tho-  inan I knew best was going to havo a  beautiful time iu bis* rooms that night.  The window seat bulged with beer bottles. Ho wanted mo to stay, but I regretfully broko nway and went back to  Northampton. I reached the cottage at  7:35. Tho girl was in the rocoption  room waiting fnr mo.  "'Goodness, but you are latoP Baiel  she. 'I camo very ucnr going without  waiting foryou. Abtronomy leoture this  morning was postponed until tonight,  so that we could have tho real stars,  you know. I'm sorry, but of course it  isu't my fault. I know you don't want  to wuuder around towu tonight, so I  havo asked my roommate to c.omu down  uud talk to you.' ~~  "She'went up into the hall and called  her'roomiiiiite, who was short and globular aud wanted to discuss Kant in relation to the future of woman. Sho  wanted to know also what that dear  Professor James of Harvard was like  and whether I had over heard bim ex-  ���������plain what ho meant by certain passages  in his blamed old textbook. Sho iveufc  to hor room and brought down tho textbook to show exactly what she mount.  Aftor an hour aud a half I fled to the  cato of tho Norwood.  "Next morning I went'to chapel  again, 'as had been ordained'by the  evanescent young woman before ' sho  trotted away to look at the stars Then  she wcut an ay to the basket ball match  game. Sho said that if I wanted to walk  down by tho gymnasium.I could havo  lots of fun hearing thorn cheer. I thanked her. She told mo to como around at  about 4 o'clock and ive would go for a  trolley rido to Florence. I didn't go  down to the gymnasium to bear tho  girls yell, hut my drooping spiuts revived. ->I found that Florence wasn't  much of a town, only a settlement really, aud wa-i flvo or six miles out iu tho  country. ,  "I was a., tho cottage promptly at S  o'clock, also at 4 o'clock. Sho camo  down very penitent at 4:15; said sho  was awlnlly put out, but tho board of  editors of somo blamed magazine, or  other had had a meeting, and she didn't  dare-to stay away a minute for fear'  tbey would voto to print au article by a  girl she just simply hated. Tbey had  been trying to get it printed against hor  will for two mouths,,'and she didn't intend that thoy should tako advantage of  tho fact she had a man iu town to slip  it in, so thero!  "Wo got ou the car. So did 18 girls  who seemed most interested in us. Tho  car swung its rattling way out into the  couutry.. Wo talked about scenery. I  saw lot. of groves and shady lanes along  tno way. 1 spoko about them once or  twice.  " 'It's over so much prettier near  Florence,' she said.  '��������� SVo ran olf ou a aiding, and tho 18  girls climbed out and began seeking asters ami things beside tho track.  ' " 'Goodness!' s.iid the girl. ,'Thcy are  getting "their botany specimons. I had  forgotten all about mine. .Won't you  get some for me?  That's a nice boy!'  "I did. Tho car started and sailed  away while I was picking .tho- lovely  things. I chased a cjuarter of a mile.  The 18 young ladies back near the siding were amused.  " 'Look at your watch, please,' said  the girl. I did so. She saw it and was  much perturbed. 'I'm going to bo late  for dinner,' sho said, 'and it lyill be tho  third time this year.'  " 'Why,' said I, 'aren't we goiug to  getofl?'  "Gooduess, no! We nre going back  on this car as fast as it can go.'  "'Bud  I haven't  seen Florence,' I  wailed.  L=_lLlSilly-_goose,i- sho^said,,-ithis���������is  Florence I  '' Wo only stopped onco on the way,  back. That once was at tho siding, and  all the IS girls piled on again. They  rememborcd me, I saw.  '"Phi Kappa meets tonight,* said the  girl as wo hurried into tha campus,  'and of course I have to go. Chapel tomorrow'���������  "She said a lot more, but I confess I  didn't hear her. She was very much  surprised when I told her I couldn't  possibly; stay'over.  " 'Anyhow, p"~rbaps it's just as well,'  she said, 'because you couldn't come to  the houso ou Sunday.'  " "Yes, I took her to tho gamo. I bo-  lievo she had a good time. I havo seen  her onco or twico sinco. But I don't  think as much of the higher education  of women as I did."���������Now York Sun.  Ub Wouldn't.
