The following are a few extracts  from the splendid speech of R. L. Borden, leader of the Conservative party,  in the Dominion House, on the third  reading of the Grand Trunk Pacific  Railway Bill:       '  " We do not propose that the voice  of the people of Canada shall be stifled  and we declare that if the Conservative party is returned to power at the  next general election it will enact such  legislation as will enable the will of  the people to prevail over the will of  this corporation, however great and  however powerful it may be.  " The people of Canada, if they realize their own strength, are and will be  greater than any corporation, greater  than all corporations. (Loud cheers.)  They do not have the same organization or the same capacity to combine,  hut their power whsn exerted to the  full is at all times irresistable.  " If it is the will of the people of  Canada, as declared by their voice at  the next election, that another railway from ocean ttvoce'an shall be  built, owned and 'controlled by rthe  people' of Canada, and not by the  Grand Trnnk Railway Company, if it  is the will of the people that we shall  assume not only nine-tenths but ten-  teuths of the obligations necessary to  construct another transcontinental  road and by that means to own and  control a" national railway highway  from the 'Atlantic to the' Pacific, the  Conservative party, if ^returned to  power, is prepared, in accordance with  the will of the people so expressed, to  place upon the statute book of Canada  sucli"legisIation���������as^"will -enable that  result ��������� to hie' accomplished with the  least possible 'delay. ���������> (Prolonged Conservative cheers.)  , *'.It is for.the people to decide. - We  shall abide, indeed we must abide, by  their verdict. But let them understand that- they have a chance; that  the door is not closed.  " By expropriation' or by ai.y other  fair and just policy we shall dairy out  the will of the people. Let them determine whether Canada shall have a  government owned railway or a railway owned government. (Prolonged  Conservative cheers.)   q  " The sanctity of contracts demands  that the legitimate rights of the promoters of this undertaking shall be  respected. There must be no repudiation. They shall not be put to any  loss, but at the same time the country  shall not be required to pay the many  prospective, or speculative, or unreasonable profits.  Against the Grand Trunk Railway  we harbor no ill-will. We realize the  work it has done in Canada. It is entitled to and it will receive the fullest  justice at our-nurds.' By"tfittt~justice  it shall receive such running rights  over the extended government lines as  will give it complete and ample access  to the Northwest. But those rights  must be accompanied with stipulations  adequately conserving and protecting  the public interests of our great national ports." (Loud Conservative  cheers.)  I Special Meeting of City Council  I A special meeting of the city council was held on Saturday evening for  tho put-pose of receiving and considering thc report of the committee of the  entire council on tho subject of additional water supply.  The committees report recommended that supply be obtained from Bridge  Creek by piping to a reservoir to be  constructed on the hill opposite the  northerly end of Mackenzie avenue iu  close proximity to the C. P. lt. water  tank.  After short discussion relative to  the adequacy of Bridge Creek the  report was adopted.  The plan is to convey the water by  means of wooden pipes of 8-inch diameter along the route surveyed by  Mr. A. P. Cummins and in accordance-wfth the specifications of Mr.  Smith, P.L.S. The;delivery pipe carrying the water from the reservoir to  the present main is; to be 12-inch in  diameter. ��������� The preliminary work has  already been initiated. Ifc is intended  to defray costs entailed by this much  needed improvement oat- of current  year's revenue.

Over One* Hundred Warehouses and all Docks Except  the Great Pier Uninjured'���������  Famine in Newchwang/- j  _Washington, June, 1.���������;The Japanese legation today gave' out "the  following dispatch from the home government at Tokyo: '_ -' ~ .  "Gen. Oku, commanding the army  operating against Port Arthur, reports  that our troops occupied Dalny on May  30. '"Over 100 warehouses and barracks  besides telegraphy office and railway  station, -were found*"uninjured. . Over-  200 railway cars'are* usable,'-but, all  small railway bridges in the neighborhood are destroyed. All dock . piers  except the great pier, which was sunk,  remain _ uninjured. Some steam  launches were also found at the mouth  of the dock."  The London Daily Mail's correspondent at Newchwang says : Some  Chinese fugitives at Port Arthur ..who  have arrived here describe the situation of the inhabitants there as  desperate. Famine prices exist. The  cost of provisions increases weekly.  Many persons ' arev-reduced to eating  Chinese food, and even that is dear.  Millet flour costs $6 a bag. Whole  streets and several public buildings  have been wrecked by Japanese shell  fire. The hospitals are packed with  sick and wounded.  Tbe work of repairing the damaged  warships has been stopped. All civilians have been given military duties  General health of the inhabitants is  good, except the Chinese, who are  dying of starvation. Theft has been  miule.puiiishable_by_death.__The_rail-  way is completely destroyed as far as  Kinchou aud Wafangtion.  At Wafangtien there are 15,000  Japanese troops, but uo.sigu of troops  further north. During the fighting nt  Kinchou 200 Chinese were killed by  Japanese fire.  The  sale of  the  Kingston and McMinnville groups of free-gold claims,  which  was reported in the columns of  the Camborne Miner some weeks ago,  has   been   verified   this   week by  the  arrival in town of a party of Portland  and McMinnville, Ore., men, representing the majority of shares in the two  companies  owning   these   properties,  for the  purpose of  completing work  necessary to obtaining crown grants.  .After the grants are issued they will  be deposited in the Imperial Bank at  Revelstoke, when  the parties purchasing the properties will deposit $20,000,  being a first payment on the sale price  of $200,000.  The party consists of P. R. Block-  berger, E. Wright, G. W. Olds, R. B.  McDonald, E. Ruflfner, T. A. Whyte,  Mr. Miller and M. U. Gortner. Kenneth Burnett, P.L.S., of Rossland, is  also with the party for the purpose of  surveying the claims. A favorable  report' on the Kingston and McMinnville groups has been given by the  mining expert who examined the pioperties last October for the intending  purchasers.  The Kingston. group comprises the  Kingston/Pittoek, Maggie R. Tongue,  Senator and Howard fraction, while  the McMinnville group is made up of  the Ishpeming and 'Houghton mineral  claims.  A deal of work,has been done on the  Kingston group, and more ��������� is now  being conducted in the two tunnels  which at present aie in 30 and 63 feel  respectively.

Evidence was put in to prove  that nearly a year.before the commission of the terrible midnight murder.  Williams and Miss Nesbitt journeyed  to Vancouver, Wash., and were united  in marriage, more than a year before  Williams was divorced.frdm his wife,  therijliving at Dufur,'.Oi*., ^[-v- _  . The pi*lsonec('\vasrnb"t"'alone accused  of slaying Alma'Nesbitf," but .-Uso her  sister. A climax in the state's case  against Williams, was reached when  Dr. Victoria Hampton declared on the  witness-stand that, after 25 comparative tests by the scientific serum process, the stains on the dried gunney  sack found in the ground on the Williams homestead, are human blood and  that the tufts of hair exhumed under  the henhouse were from the heads of  human beings. It wai a tragic scene  when this part of the trial was reached.  There is no doubt this evidence helped  the jury to reach tlieir verdict.

Says Reil is Alive  The Winnipeg Telegram Monday  niorning published an interview with  a Woodstock man, who -.' says that  Louis Kiel the leader of the breeds in  the -Northwest Rebellion, was not  hanged at Regina, but escaped to  Chicago, where he lived under the  name of Jonathan Matthews, and'ia  now a prosperous rancher near Rollins, Wyo.  Grit Labor Fake.  At a largely attended meeting of tl.e  Iron Moulders' Union lust Friday night  in Montreal, strong resolutions were  passed denouncing the Labor Department of the Dominion Government  and the Labor Gazette. Various  speakers claimed that the Gazette was  not published in the interests of labor,  but of the American and Canadian  Manufacturers' Associations.  Strong exception was taken especially to the statement published in thc  last issue that the iron moulders and  coromakers In Montreal were fully  employed. The shop committee reported many idle, and others had been  forced to accept odd jobs. The, chairman of the out-of-work committee  reported that he was obliged to assist  many foreigners, induced to come to  Canada under the false representations of the immigration agents.  It was decided to inaugueratc a  campaign through Canada with a view  of putting the Labor Gazette out of  business. The delegates to the Trades  and Labor Council were instructed to  attend the next meeting of that body,  and ask that similar action be taken  by them.'  The secretary was instructed to  reply to enquiries from Great Britain  asking if the government agents' representations that work was plentiful  in Canada, were true, to the effect  that the Canadian market is now  flooded, and thousands of Italians and  other foreigners are existing on scarcity. It was decided to hold an entertainment on June 2nd for the purpose  of raising money to assist those out of  employment.  The longshoremen's union of Montreal, the largest local body, has joined  the moulders' demand that the government should abolish the labor department ? and the Labor Gazette-  They have appointed a committee to  take joint action with the moulders.  Cyclone at Brandon.      ���������  A terrific cyclone struck Brandon  on Saturday afternoon, and left destruction in its course. Fortunately  only the southern portion of the city  was in the storm's path, and in that  part there is abundant proof of its  severity.  The main building at the fail-  grounds is in ruins. The large new  -wing--which-was���������begun- carly-in the  season was all but completed, and it.  with the old part, Is now strewn on  the ground.  When the storm struck the structure  several carpenters were at work. All  escaped narrowly with their lives.  Some small houses on the Johnston  estate, which wore in course of erection, were also razed to the ground.  Many fences were flattened.  In the other pints of thc city no  destruction was wrought, but for a  Lime the dust was so thick 111 the air  that it was impossible to see across  the street.  ���������*���������      Card of Thanks'.**     [   ;;'  The Talent Society of St. Peter's -  church desires to express a hearty vote  of thanks to all who took part in the  drama of the Colleen Bawn, and a  special vote of thanks to Mi*.

V ;  Jn tlie early  stages of the war  ho  does  not  look for  internal    troubles  -'in    Russia. -The-"revolutionary     elements ,-?he thinks, will  bc    content to-  await the issue.-'   Still,   the    Russian  Government, if it really contemplated aggression in the Kast tjp the extent of braving war,  has been ino"st  short-sighted in its dealings with tlio  disafleeted  portions   nt  its  populace.  KishineS has  eitrageu ,thc  Jews:'tho  confiscation  of their church    property has driven  the Armenians of   the  Caucasus  to   rebellion,   and   they   arc  found   with   arms   in   thoir. liands   as  ouen  as  they  can  sec.ui;c  them;   and  the Fitins,  a stubborn and determined people,  have been exasperated    to  the    verge     of    revolt by  lho stern  measures  taken  to  crush   out     their  national existence.     It is difficult-for  the first two named to secure weapons and    munitions for any    serious  uprising:  but the  Finns, whose cortat  is not far removed from Sweden, and  whose configuration  makes  repression  of     smuggling    most   dillicult.,  mny  tako advantage of Russia's stress   to  make    a   bold   stand' for their liberties.  MAV  BE REVOLUTION.  More    serious  than  these menaces,  Jlr.    Kennan     thinks,  is  what    may  ��������� happen at the end of the war,    however it lesults;  or at the end of   the  iiist   campaign,     should   it bc disastrous.     Russia canno't make war for  even   one -year   without  entailing  ox-  traordinarv    expenditures     of      from  5300,000,000 to  ?")00,000,000.  What  the war wi.l cost hcr if prolonged beyond    that  time   i*f  beyond  estimate.  When  it  comes  to  paying  the     bills  there i.s sure  to  be infernal   trouble,  says ilr.  Ivcnna.ii.    Alieady  the    people of  Russia are  taxed  unlil     existence is  barely  tolerable;   and  it    is  impossible to sec how the war can be  fiananced without tho burden af    the  ���������eoi le  being mace intolerable.      Recently,   in  peace  times,   tlio  Ministry  lias been warned by lire Finance De-  partment that *the  limit of  taxation  had been reached, and that the levies  upon the taxpayers could'bot be in-  irca?ed..     The     economic    status  of  Ru.-eia is  very low;  the people    live  n:i a  scale that is hardly credible to  Americans.-     And    when   the  cost  of  thi-  war ia added to  the taxes    up-'  ri i gs against the tax-gatherers and  the Government aie. inevitable.

Such  freedom as that suggested does exist.  It is possible to deliver lectures on  ventilation or on the best moans of  keeping dwellings clean, but whenever any- systematic effort oi this  sort is hiade tho organizers immediately fall under the suspicion of tho  police.

By    tho     "Laws     of May"  which   the  Emperor   Alexander     111.  signed   on May  8,     189r2,   the     Jews  were no longer allowed  to reside   in  villages, but only in towns or  burgs.  The polite were apparently left to decide whether a place was a. village or  a burg.   If they chose to call  it     a  village,     then    the Jews might     be  driven      out     in    twenty-four  hours.  Thus,'"for-instance, in'IStio, all    the  burgs ftof    the    provinces  of  Poltava  and TehernigoIT 'were  declared  to  be  villages,  and the Jews  had  to  leave  in twent.y-foiii' hours.

Jn explanation of the  modus operandi of his lightning manipulation of the inzor lie said: "In  the first place I used a good, heavy  razor ,*.ibotit an inch wide. I always  kept my razor as fiat to the face as  possible, in order to avoid any scraping. Clear cutting, not scraping, insures a ([trick, clean shave.  "Of course, the least number of  movements with the hand the greater  sat ing of time.

The  possession of the ranges had long  been disputed between the cattle  raisers and tho sheep men. ' Intensely bitter . feuds have resulted and  many lives have been sacrificed to tho  hatred ��������� between the two classes.  IN BITTER  RANGE  WAR.   '  In tho spring of 1896 this bitter  fooling reached its height. Thousands  of sheep were driven on to tha ranges  thnt the cattlemen had formerly  claimed as their own. The cattlemen prepared to "defend what tbey  considered their territory, and armed  moil patrolled tho ranges. Conspicuous among those wa.s "Diamond  Jack."  In the western part of Cassia County, Idaho, the fight for the range  was the fiercest. The sheepmen had  been warned that to cross a certain  ridge near Deep Creek meant death  for themselves and their stock". Nov-  ertheldss, somo of them persisted in  driving their sheep into the forbidden territory.  Among these men' were John C.  Wilson and Daniel Cummings, herders. One day a rancher found both  men de.id in their crimp wagon. They  had bcon killed with a ritle.    .  There were many circumstances that,  seemed to point to Jack Davis aiul  another mnn ns having knowledge of  the crime. They wore arrested; 'Tlie  man who was jointly charged wiih  Davis was soon released, but With  "Diamondlielu  Jack"   it fared  worse.  SENTENCED TO DEATH.'  . The jury found him guilty, and on  April J-I, 18H7, ho was sentenced to  he hanged. The case was-appealed  to thc .Supreme Cornt of the state  which nfTli'iiiod the judgment of the  lower tribunal and resentenced Davis  to dio, fixing the date of execution as  Oct. 2N, J8.9S. Eight d.'i.vs before  the sentence ~wns to be carried . out  Governor Hunt granted the earrdcnin-  specd of,' the slowest ship* that sets  the pace to the fleet. Iii conl supply  the fleets are about equal. It is probable that tho Japanese ships havo  room for moro coal -than the official  figures indicate. If this is so, their  endurance could-be. increased at" the  .expense of a trifle,. In the way of say  one-fifth knot in speed. Finally, tho  Japanese' ships ,are more^ alike than  are-the Russians,-and. are th'un qctsier  Co manoeuvre together. Moreover,  six ships are easier .to .worh than  eight, and the end ' of ithe line is  less likely to got into the wrong  placo���������namely, out of range. * Summing up, the Japanese may be said  to have a small but distinct advant-  aco in battleship force, and .the  hieher speed (of the slowest ships)  gives thcm tho power of bringing on  or refusing an n������*tton at will.  RUSSIA HAS TI-TREE NAVIES.  At  present,   all      the  best  Russian  ships are in the Far East, and every  effort is being made to reinforce    the  ships there by sending out everything  that    ^can,- possibly be  spared  from  Europe.

The instincts of this man were noble.

Could he bring himself to hold  Beryl to her promise?. Could he  bring himself to part theso lovers,  whoso, hearts were knit together for  all eternity?  For one quivering instant love of  Beryl surged up in -the great 'Counsel's soul and caused him to waver.  "Oh, Heaven!" he murmured, huskily;, "T love hor! I love her! I  love her!"

The Expedition Is Not a   Picnic���������  Plenty of Hard Work    and  Discomfort.  Tho special correspondent - of tho  London Daily Mail, with tho Thibetan expedition, sends the following  account of the country from Chumbi:  From Darjeoling to Lhasa is 3G4  miles'. Those, as in the dominions of  Namgay Doolai Raja, are mostly on  end; The road crosses the Thibetan  frontier at the Jelap-la Pass (14,-  600 fett), eight miles to tho north-  cast. From Observatory Hill in  Darjeoling, one looks over the bleak.,  hog-backed ranges' of Siklcim to tho  Snows. To the north and northwest lie 'Kinchinjunga, and the trc-  till jmondous chain of mountains tluit embrace Everest: ,' To the north-east  stretches a lower line of dazzling  rifts and '/spires, in ..which one can  seo a thin, grey wedge like a slice in  a-Christmns-cnko.���������That- is-tho-Jel--  np. ���������..Beyond it lies Thibet.  There is a good military road from  Siliguri, the base station in the  plains, to Rtrngpo, forty-eight miles }q  along the Toesta Valley. After that  tho jiath is n six-foot mule, track, ut  its best a sleep, dusty '.incline, at its  worst a succession of broken rocks  and frozen puddles, which give no  secure foothold to a transport animal. From Rtrngpo tho rond skirts  a mountain stream for twenty niiles  along a fertile valley of some 2,000  feet, through rico fields and orange  groves and peaceful villages, now the  scene of bustle  and preparation.  A RIDE IN TIIE NIGHT.  feet Iny a narrow pine-clad ravine,  through which flowed an affluent of  tho Ammo Chu. Far below on a yel-  '. .w hillside hung the lamasery of  Rinshr'ngoiig. In the vallot beneath  lay Chunrbi and the road to Lhasa.  Both at homo and in India one  hears tho Thibet mission spoken of  enviously ns a picnic. There is .an  idea of an encampment in a smiling  valley and easy marches towards the  mysterious  city.  In reality, there i.s plenty of hard  and uninteresting work; the expedition is attended with all?the hardships and discomforts of a campaign  and very littlo of the excitement. Col.  Younghusband is now at Tuna, a  desolate hamlet on the Thibetan plateau exposed to the coldest winds of  'Asia,"-'where'- the thermometer falls to  23 degrees below zero. Detachments  of the escort are scattered along the  line of /communications in places of  varying cold and discomfort, whore  they must wait until tho necessary  supplies havo been carried through  the phari.  In tho mo.irrwhiic, imagine the pioneers and Ghurkas, too cold to wash  or shave, shivering in a dirty Thibetan fort, half 'suffocated'.with .'smoke  from a yak-dung fire. Then there is  tlio transport officer shut up in some I same  narrow valley of Sikkim.   trying    to | while  make half a dozen out of three, with  his camp o"f sick beasts and sheaf of  urgent telegrams calling for supplies.  lT('_liopcs "tlie"rc_will Ijrf ?i��������� sliow; arid  that lie may be in it.

Japan's Policy Not a Narrow Ona  ���������She Is Not Looking for  Territory.  M. Kuriao, until recently JariaJies*  Minister at St. Petersburg, has arrived at Paris, lie received * e*rros>  pondeni and talked niQSfinterestingly  on some of the inipoi tant general i*>  sues of tho war.  "It is a remarkable fact," .vaid tho  Minister,  "that Corea is in a woryte  J condition now thnn when I was ther*  ten years ago.   At that time a general state of ignorance prevailed, owing    to      the     Government's   policy  against'modern methods.      Recently  iho French Minister at Seoul   passed  through St. Petersburg on his    way  to Pniis, and told me that the   con-^  ditions      or  ignorance  and  incompetence were worse to-day than when I  observed  them.      For  that  reason I  do  not  think  the reports  that *  the  Marquis  Ito's  mission   to  Corea     is  for     the purpose of introducing    reforms    is     correct.        Count luyoue  tried  some years  ago Without     success.   The  difiiculty   of   tho   situation  is that'the introduction of the   mere  .external     forms  of    modern    civilization is'noi enough, as what the Coreans need  is    the substance,  tlie essence of modern methods, instead   ol  mere outward forms."  When asked what would be the result of the entrance of the Japanese  into Corea,  the former Minister stjid:   .  "There are many erroneous ��������� reports  concerning Japan's intentions find  policy towards Corea. It seems to  be the prevailing impression Uiat  Japan is bent on absorbing Corea  territorially and politically, but, as  a. matter of fact, she has no such  purpose, and, the reports are due to  failure to comprehend Japan's settled  policy.  SISTERHOOD OF NATIONS.  Japan has entered among the sisterhood of nations. She recognizes  the benefits of modern methods, inter-course, and communication. She  has established steamship . lines "...to  London and Antwerp, aud- two lines  to San Francisco, and she has replaced old treaties with new ones,  on the most modern and enlightened  lines. /'All; lliis shows her i col policy  of joining? with the rest of the great  nations ajid spreading the benefits of  modern      ' methods     and modern  civilization. Thcrciorc-~~"she  does  not        seek the      potty, nar-'  row advantage of acquiring Corea  all to herself and locking hcr up  against tho world. Those who attribute such a narrow policy to  Japan ail to comprehend her motives. If Japan has ambition it is  the noble ambition to vuK'anco with  the rest of the world, but. not the  ignoble ambition of setting a little  exclusive dominion for her present  occupancy and advantage."  M. Kuriiio spoke with intense earnestness concerning the noble nature  of Japan's ambitions, and, continuing,  said :���������  "Japan, therefore, does not seek  to annex Corea or politically dominate her, nor does she want any other  country to annex Corea to Japan's  detriment and menace. The recent  Japanese-Col can treaty expressly  protects Corea's integrity and independence- Moreover, it is not Japan's policy to annex territory on  the mainland. In that respect Russia seeks to annex and acquire exclusive political domination. Japan  does not ask this, does, not want  selfish exclusive domination. Sho  wants to be one of the liberal world  powers which are extending the benefits of. commerce, communication,  and civilization."  THE   "YELLOW PERU.,."  M.   Kurino   was   asked    concerning   "  Russia's: claim  that  Japan's success  created a  "yellow? peril."  "Why should Japan want to ;be arrayed against the white races of Europe ?" ho asked, in reply.  "Aro not   Japan's     interests'?'' the  as     those   of the enlightened  races?

The Famous General    Is a  Mannered Man.  Major-Generai Plunier, who led a.  force of mounted riflemen in the Mat-  nbelelond 'campaign in 1896, and was  tireless irr his efforts to relieve Mafo-  king during the recent South African  War, lias a reputation rivalling that  of "the mildest-mannered man that  over scuttled ship or cut a throat."  In the thick of the fight he is the politest of warriors.  As an example of his unvarying  "drawing-room manners," as a brother officer once styled thorn, a story  is told of him that during the Mata-  400,000,000 people, which form such?  a large part of the yellow race,  could not be united in any general  movement^-for~Cl"iiiin��������� is- not-a- single  nation, but an atsembly: of- small  and comparatively      independent  States, having different interests.  Therefore, the so-called 'yellow peril'  is an impossibility, and even if it  were possible, Japan does not want  separation from, but cominujiication  with the white races of Europe and  America."  GOVERNMENT IN COREA.  Corea,  the prize of victory in  any  Russo-Japanese  war,  could   not possibly  be  worse  governed   by      either  country or by any country than it ia,  at present  by itself.   The  oppression'  of    its happy-go-lucky people recalls  tho East of    Arabian     Nightf,    and  their superstition is at least, an savage as their oppression.
