AMONG THE  VERY BEST  Important Strike made   on the  Famous Silver   Dollar Group  ���������Free Gold   Ledges Tapped  by the Tunnel.  Another strong evidence of the permanency and richness of the great  free milling ledges of tho now famous  Fisli Cfeek camp wns demonstrated  last week by Mr. J. A. Darragh, the  manager for the Elwood Tin Plate  Workers Mining Co. Ltd., who are  now the owners of the Silver Dollar  group on Mohawk Creek, and on  which extensive work is now in progress.  A few weeks ago Mr. Darragh  started a cross-cut tunnel to tap one  of the exposed free-milling ledges  which cross the property. The ledge  was from 5 to 15 feet wide on the surface and Mr. Darragh struck the lead  in the tunnel on Wednesday of last  week' with splendid results in free  gold ore, and a sprinkling of high  grade galena running through it.  The ledge has not been crosscut yet  and it is not known definitely how  wide the showing is under the surface,  but sufficient has already been done  to place the group among the very  best free milling properties in the  camp and is a source of great satisfaction to all who know the property  and who have steadily, maintained  that the Silver Dollar would yet come  to the front.  Besides the ledge just'tapped there  are at least three other gold leads, as  well as the high grade galena ledge  upon " which the late Mr. Best, the  locator of the group, did extensive  development work.     -    - -  Last week Messrs. "V. Lade of the  Oyster-Criterion and Barney Crilly,  mine superintendent for the Great  Northern Mines, Ltd., visited the Silver, Dollar and1 were shown the ground  just being worked. They were quite  surprised at the excellent showing on  the lead "which they pronounced one  of the best in the country, it being  both large and well defined.  Mr. Darragh is busily engaged at  present having the mine buildings  elected, and a compressor plant and  small sawmill for the company's own  use will be installed as speedily as  possible. Thus will the Silver Dollar  take its place shortly among the richest producers of the yellow metal in  the district, and will be another striking advertisement for a district which  has no equal in the country as a high  guide gold-silver camp, a fact which  is now readily recognized by live,  energetic business and mining men.  The company are to lie congratulated on possessing a property with such  bright prospects, which, through their  manager Mr. Darragh, they are work  ing in a most legitimate manner for  their own success, which means the  success of every individual interested  in the district.  diverted  tlieir attention to a temporary spell of relaxation.  This rich strike will enhance the intrinsic value of thc group to such an  extent, that the syndicate owning thc  property can command tlioir--own  figures. Looking too fur forward is at  all times a risky and occasionally a  disappointing proceeding, but in conversation on tho live topic wilh 11 prominent disinterested citizen on Wednesday night, he remarked lie would  be guided by tho opinion of Waller in  the matter, who as a minor and an  expert had averred it was the richest  think he had seen, and prophesied  that Ferguson was in for a good time,  as he firmly believed this would prove  the largest ore-producing camp in the  country.���������Ferguson Eagle.

FOUND THE  MAIN VEIN  Of the Silver Cup on the  Union Jack Property* after  Three Months of Unflagging  Energy.  There was a smile as extended as the  sidewalk on the respective dials of Lou  Thompson and Will Waller when  they leached town on Wednesday  morning. For three months they  have been away up .at the Union Jack  mine, and the fact of their once more  shaking hands .with civilization did  not alone account for tbat_ smile.  Asked for an explanation, said Lou :���������  "We've got what we were after, and  it's all there." Pressed for more lucid  information it transpired that Waller  and Thompson have succeeded in locating the rich Silver Cup main vein,  which as events, they rightly conjectured ran through the Union Jack  property.  They struck' the blind vein some  two months ago, but raised up on it  as the water beat them out, but being  on the right lay they persevered and  ran through about 85 feet of hard  rock, and eventually ran into the vein.'

Shoots His Father  Saskatoon, June 22.���������A man hy  the name of Stewart, living at Eagle  creek, thirty-seven miles from here,  Has been shot by his young son. A  ^family dispute was , the, cause. The  father in a-fit of anger started'bea ting  his wife and his son threatened to  shoot him unless he desisted. Stewart  took no heed, and the boy maddened  by his mother's screams, got his  father's - shotgun from the rack and  put the whole charge into hiin at a  distance .of a few feet. Stewart died  alrnosc at once, and the neighbors  brought word to the police who have  gone out to the scene of the trouble  for the purpose of arresting the boy.

WILCOX GETS  SEVEN YEARS  The Slocum Disaster  By the use of dynamite and heavy  guns fired by men from the second  battery, scores of bodies where brought  iip yesterday from the bottom around  the shores near North Brother island  today. From sunrise to sunset the  searchers along,the beach and in tbe  boats gathered in 112 bodies,- bringing  up the number recovered to: date to  the appalling total of 845.  Of these, 700 have been identified,  and the missing still are'approximated  at something more than 3CJ.- Many of  the liodies last found never will be  identified, because of the changes that  have taken place during the week they  have been under water.  serve   seven  months he has  behind  the bars since  And Lawyer Bangs of Calgary  Sentenced to Eigtheen Months  - at~~Hard_Labor-For Complicity  in Mail Robbery.  Regina, Assa., June 20.���������The sensational criminal case Know.i as the  Wilcox mail robbery case, has been  formally closed. J. A. Bangs, the  Calgary lawyer, is in the Regina jail'  serving his term of eighteen months.  J.. H. Wilcox, the ex-postal clerk, has  been taken to Stoney Mountain penitentiary, where he will  years, less the several  already put in  being arrested;    ,  The climax of the extraordinary, case  developed when Mr. Justice Newlands  sentenced the two men. He had known  Bangs for many years, had practiced  at the same bar with him, and "was  acquainted with the family of the convict. He exhibited much emotion in  pronouncing the sentence* Thc confinement of Bangs carries with it hard  labor in the jail. The miserable man  did not manifest as much feeling in  receiving the sentence as the judge  did in its imposition.  Wilcox followed his conspirator into  the box. Throughout the trying circumstances attending his arrest and  trial he has exhibited an iron nerve.  While listening to the revelations that  meant a long prison sentence he did  not flinch. But when he heard the  words that meant the better portion of  his life in Stoney Mountain hostile the  courage that had supported bim  through the various stages of the case  deserted him. As the judge mentioned  seven years the prisoner burst into  tears. He bent his head forward ;and  wept for several minutes.     It  was   a  Premier Laurier Announces the  Proposed Substitution of the  Electoral Lists Will be Withdrawn  Ottawa, 'June 22.���������Premier Laurier's aiinnuncement to the House this  afternoon that the government had  dropped -Hon. Clifford Sifton's", proposed capture of Manitoba by substituting government' electoral lists for  those rJrepared'^iTnaer* the provincial  law will probably have the effect of  shortening the session by three  months provided the Premier's promise is strictly -adhered to as the  opposition were prepared to fight the  monstrous proposition to the last  ditch. It was a bad call dowu for Mr.  Sifton and a big triumph for Mr.  Borden and his followers.  Even some of the government followers intimated to Sir Wilfrid  Laurier that legislation of this stripe  was more than they could swallow.  But the session is not yet over and Mr.  Sifton may yet be heard from.  * Premier Laurier said the election  law legislation would be of a very  light character, and it would have reference to the Representation Act as  far as New Brunswick was concerned,  to remove all doubts as to the representation being fixed at 13 members.  Some amendments would also be necessary to clause 27 of the act, which  gives the governor-in-council power to  fix the date of nominations in Algoma,  Gasp~e7 Saguinayrdiicoutimi, Burrard  and Yale-Cariboo. Some of the constituencies had been "carved" by the  Redistribution act and legislation will  be needed to carry out the spirit of  these changes. Premier Laurier's use  of the word "carved," like his term  "foreigner" a fow days ago, was a slip  of the tongue. Premier Laurier's announcement is regarded as as intimation that the elections will not take  place this year.  It is reported that the Auditor-  General has decided to hand in his  resignation. He is said to be so disgusted with the number of Treasury  over-rulings against him and the general objections he had to contend with  on the part of the Government, that  he feels he has no alternative but to  resign.

' '  The  Soap Grafter.  Beware of the grafter, he abounds  in the land. Last week one of the  many struck town and his graft was  soap, just ordinary 25c. soap and tlie  suckers were plenty. The gentleman  grafter would strike one of the drug  stores and purchase a 25c. bar of soap,  he would turn into a room and there  proceed to cut the 25c. bar into smml  square chunks, wrap them carefijRy  in tissue paper and proceed to sell the  same for 15c. each, and the story was  that this same soap that is used every  day. by the people of the city would  remove grease spots from cloMiin;?,  wash the finest silk without injury,  etc. The soap sold readily and out i.t-  a 25c. bar of soap, he would realize  from $10 to .$15. But of, course tliere  are   other  grafters   besides   the soap  nian_and_thAHERALD_will_endeavpr_to   explain their methods in a future issue  Engineer Turns Raving Maniac  G. A. Hall, engineer of the Slocan  City freight train, began whistling  for brakes as he approached Slocan  Junction this morning. The air was  applied and the train stopped. The  conductor asked Hall why he stopped  who replied by saying that he would  get the train through faster than ever  a train went before. . The fireman  jumped from the. cab and said that  Hall was a raving maniac, arid that he  had lieen shovelling coal into the furnace like fury. The engineer was  overpowered and kept in the caboose  until Nelson was reached. . It took  four men to take bim to the police  station as he struggled so desperately.  ���������Vancouver Ledger.  ���������Don't forget that we always* have  fresh fruit at C. B.

In building a houso tho average individual is much more concerned  about tho parlors, tho reception hall  and tho dining-room thnn with tho  kitchen, which some orro has called  "tho heart of tho houso."  Some of us have recollections of  Ihe old-fnshioned kitchen "ut grandfather's," that nro more or loss  tinged with sentiment., but few want  that kind of a kitchen in their own  houses. The okl-fashionod kitchen  was really the family living-room,  lt was dining-room except on stato  occasions, washroom, uookroom, and  thu caller who ran in for a few minutes' chtit was familiarly mndo at  homo whilo tho work went on uninterruptedly.

Add ono. table-  ill tlio course of tho year because of  spoonful  tago of tho prevailing winds in srim-  mor and thus get air and coolness.  Bedrooms on the east sido of a  houso are nearly always hot in summer nnd cold in winter. Put tho  kitchen on tho north or west si  you can; thus you have it cool  summer. Plan the porch so that it  has a pretty outlook, gets tho  breeze, and is not overlooked by tho  street and tho neighbors' window's.  1^  DOMESTIC RECIPES.

Por tho past four months Mr. J.

A long dormant something  woke within hcr under tho spell of  the lady's gracious presence; hcr  voice, her faco, her smile sot many  currents astir in hcr half-petrified,  half-crushed nature.

"'Tis well enough- for somo volk,"  Sarah  admitted,  guardedly.   .

In tho housing and care of dairy  cows no country, 7 shows, as a rule  in gouei'al practice, any methods or  conditions bolter than those of this  country. The average conditions  elsewhoro are bad enough, witli opportunities" for very, great improvement;  but such improvement is being made  as rapidly in this country as any-  ,whpro. Nowhere else is; there a better appreciation of tho importance  and economy ?' of abundant, room,  light, air,' dryness, comfort, and  cleanliness for cows. One hears much  of tho close relations betweon the  dairy cows and tho f ami lies of thoir  owi]ers_iii_llnIland_ond_Sjivit/.crland_  to7--mdfetO*(.uthful--ar,d^,ai.len,y-���������^7^-",^ K^Ta^'tte  ot   flowors,   nnd   mirrored   the     palo 7    ,       ,    .  ,,   ' ,  , , ��������� ���������.. ....  golden    glory of blossoming sallows, |^.n������ ���������or/.ot?:iJ^Lth^.f^^      It  golden glory  already thronged with inebriato  bees. .Nests wore hidden down by  tho water where the sedge rustled  drily, little dark moor-hens darted  out with thoir wild, plnlntivo cry;  an emerald flash lighted on a sallow  bough, its double in tiro wuter beneath proclaiming it a kingfisher;  pigeons murmured contentedly, tho  littlo stream gurgled musically in its  rocky descent to the lak'o, the spring  liko'fragrance of young leaves filled  tho air.  Jossio, seeing and feeling all - this  fresh, livo beauty as    she stood  the oasel near her worshipped friend,  felt dopths upon depths within her,  whether of pain or joy sho did not  rightly know; all wns vngun and undeveloped, liko the blind stirrings of  tho spring in the world uround; lust  year's'''nestlings- cannot toll what  wonders may happen ns tho spring  da.is go by with fresh miracles, no  it is with young, unstirred hourts,  ignorant ot tho advancing pageant  'of-lifo.  "How beautiful, how very beautiful !" she murmured drcumily,. us  sho, gazed before her.  "Passable,"'commented her companion,  "Mihducd scale of coloring."  "And how pleasant to lie with  you, dear Miss Lonsdale," continued  Jcssio. "I think I novor quite lived  bofore. I shall novor," slip added,  "bc happier than.I "in to-day."  Clara looked at tho young, sweet  rapt face with a mixture of envy  .and pity, Gcorn nnd tenderness, wonder and" "amusement. , "Foolish  child," she snid, carossingly; "how  long is it since you wished to forgot  your own existence^? Como und  sketch in  these trees for.inc."  She smiled a glad assent and bent  over tho easel. Sho did not know  that oven now tho shadow of advancing fate    was falling upon   hor.  aro seen in sumnior converted into  conservatories and rooms for weaving  und cheese curing are the exceptional  and show' places. Even tho best of  thoso whon visited in midwinter,, with  the cattlo in place, arc often found  dark, ill vontllutod, close, crowded,  and insanitary in many respects,' although   frcqucn lly  kept   clean.       Tho  stealing   from   the mysterious maze  of  oak-boughs  in    tho  hourt  of     tho  wood, -mid" tK)il   she   would    never  by   again  bo tho samo fresli-hourtod girl  construction of cow stables generally  in tho  old  world  is  of  a  substantial  kind,  but  with  littlo regard  to  light  and   ventilation,   convenience   of     arrangement  or ease of cleaning.      The  labor  necessary to  keep  thorn  in  decent  condition would  bo regarded    as  impossible in this country.    The cow  houses in  Denmark  average  the best  of all, in     Europe,  but  thoy are     no  bettor  in  any  respect  than   tho  average of thoso of the distinctly    dairy  districts  of  this     country,   and  there  ,is here far move regard  for economy  j of labor management.    Danish stables  aro generally kept clean, but at    the  cost of a vnst amount of very   cheap  Inbor.    Tn other countries, ns woll as  Denmark,  much attention  Is  paid  to  cleaning tho cow stables, brrt tho conclusion has been forced upon us that  'this is dona morc from nn appreciation of the value of all ninnurial matter and tho fixod habit of saving    it  than  from     nny knowledge or  lnten-  itlon of    cleanliness as of prime    importance In dairying.    This is especially shown by tho fact that lho cows  are  milked   in  just  about   as  careless  and uncleanly a maimer in Groat Bri-  , tain and all over Europe as, it must  unfortunately    bo    confessed,     is  the  I common prnctlco in this country. The  verv -"iinrnl use of women as-milkers  ' in all foreign dairy districts is a do-  j cided advantage:  thev aro gvntler and  ! cleaner than mon.  and vastly    bettor  ithan  tho  average  farm  laborer,    who  does all sorts of work during tho day.  Much attention is being given, especially   fn1 England,   to   perpetuate     the  custom  of    employing women  instead  of men  for milkers,  and  to  maintain  tlio  efficiency  of  milfc-umids:  the   popular  public .milking  contests  at  tho  dniry shows arc useful nnd commendable.     Many parts of Europe have tho  additional   advantage  of keeping    tho  cows  in   tho   fields  continuously     tho  greater* part of the yoar and  milking  thorn in tho open  air.    This   practice  does  much'  to  insure  clean  milk   and  puro  products.  DAIRYING ON A SMALL SCALE.  Thero. are many farmers who practice general farming, keeping enough  cows to pay tlio grocery bill, who do  not fool that their business in this  lino is largo enough to warrant using  tho best modern applicancos and conducting the. business along the lines  laid down by the best dairying .'authorities. Each man must Judge for  himself as to whether? it is advisable  to put in a separator and to build a  silo. It is probable that a separator  will pay for itself in a comparatively  .short > time, even whero but a.few  ���������'cows aro kept. If-not, add a few  more to tho herd and arrange to  savo'all tho butter fat that is produced. If cows aro kept, thoy should  have the .feed f that ;-will enable them  to produce the most profit for the  owner, and it is tho general experience "of practical dairying that the  silo is an advantage in producing  milk cheaply. But whether silo and  separators are adopted or not, most  farmers who keep cows could improve  their methods of feeding and the general  conduct  of thc  business.  It would be wiso for many to have  thoir cows como fresh in the fall or  early winter, rather than in" spriag  as so many do. The price of butter  is';, higher in tho 'winter, and the farmer has less other work to demand his  time and attention, than during the  summer months. Mnny farmers allow thoir cows to go dry all winter,  and wliile feeding, them,"receive ��������� no  income from. the herd."  ��������� Of courso, a cow giving milk will  require more feed and better care,  than ono running dry, but* sho must  bo fed roughage anyway, and grain  which would be required to mako  milk, would: bo paid for many times  ovor by the butter she produced. To  mako ji cow do hor best in*'winter,  sho" should be warmly housed, and  not be allowed to~" run out during  cold, stormy weather. Si Inge is a  groat advantage, but if fed bright,  sweet clover hay end corn fodder,  bran or ground corn, she will do well,  especially if a few roots can bo added 'to the ration to meet the craving  forrgrcon feed. If the roughage is  chiefly clover, a' grpatcr amount .���������'.of  fot-producing elements will bo required -��������� in tho grain, and a largo  amount of corn meal can bo,profitably used. If tho roughage is largely  corn stalks, timothy hay and oat  straw"*-the-grain ration-should bo_  coinposed largely of feeds rich in protein.  that flitted lightly over the daisied  sward in that morning's sutisblne.

Nature's    Way    of Stretching and  Relaxing the Muscles.  A Good, wide, open-mouthed yawn  says a medical-.journal, is a splendid thing for the whole body. A"  yawn is Xaturo's demand for rost.  Some peoplo think they only yawn  because they are sleepy. Hut this  is not so. You yawn, because you  aro tired. You may bc sloepy also,  but that is not the real cause of  your yawning. You are sleepy bo-'  cause you arc tired, and you yawn  because you  are tired.  Whenever,'��������� you feel like yawning,  just ynwn. Don't try to suppress  it becausoryou think it is impolite  to yawn. Put your hand ovor your  mouth if you want to, but let tho  yawn come. And if you-aro'*': where  you can stretch! at "tho some time  that you yawn, just stretch and  yawn. This is Nature's wny of  stretching and relaxing the muscles.  Don't be afraid to open your  mouth and yawn and stretch whenever ? you "feel like it. : Indeed, if  you are'very tired, but do not foe!  like yawning, there is nothing that  will rest you so quickly ns to sit on  a straight-back chair and, lifting  the feet from the floor, push them  out in front of you as far as possi-  bleT-stretch-tho'arms���������put���������the-head���������  back, open tho mouth wide, and  make yourself yawn. Those tense  nerves will relax, the contracted  muscles will stretch, and the wholo  body will bo rested. Do this two  or throe times when you are tired  and seo whut it will do for you.  CHINES^ ������TAMES.  Prefixes and Suffixes All Have    a  Significance.  A few dfinitions of Chinese geographical prefixes nnd sufHses may Im  of service in elucidating the nomenclature of current war news. First  prefixes : Ta. as in Taku, means  great, and siao, as in Siao-Ping-  Thou, moans small.

Pai, hoi and whang nro white, blaok  and yellow. Suffixes tiro more numerous and fumiliar. Kiang, ho  tchuan, ula. inuren and tchu each  and all nican river. Thus Yalu  Kiang and Liao Ho are simply Yalu  River and Liao River. Shui;? kou,  thsuan, khi. gol and ussu arc unfamiliar terms, moaning a brook -or  small river;-' ' Hu. nor omo mean  lako, as in tho well-known I.ob Nor  ond Kosso Gol, To, tse nnd tiom  moan a small lake or swamp, or &  town situated near such a pluce.

CANADA  SHOULD  ROAD,  OWN  The Grand   Trunk   Pacific will cost  Canada anywhere from $150,000,000 to  8170,000,000   which   means that every.  Canadian  must assume responsibility  for from S"2o to S32.    Taking tlie lesser  figure as the unit, it means that if tho  Government accepted  the obligation  to construct  the entire road, it would  involve Canadians  in an expenditure  of S27.50. , As the matter now stands  the country is to pay nine-tenths of  the bill,   wliile the   Grand Trunk only  pays'.one-tenth.     But    the    railway  managers get a road and the country  gets nothing for fifty years.   "Would.it  not   be   better for tho persons responsible for the cash to clip a little deeper  and   have   a   "national"    railway   in  every sense of the word ?   There can  be no doubt as to the advantages that  would   accrue   to   the   people   of the  West,   were   the .Intercolonial  to be  extended   from   ocean to ocean.    The  Conservative   party    stands   for   the  building   of   the   Western link of the  people's railway.    Let us pay the Sa.50  extra and   got  something out'of   the  deal.    Let Canada have a government  owned   railway,   and   uot  a  railway  owned government.  $1,081,003.    "Where did the money go ?  Mr. A. C. Bell replied in behalf of  the opposition and was able to show  that every pledge given to the peoplo  by the Liberals prior to 1S90 had been (  violated. He fully exposed the oppor- j  tunisni of the men in power. Other  splendid criticisms were offered by  Messrs. Pope, Osier', Lennox, and  Smith (Wentworth).  Lord Dundonald was assailed by the  Liberals because he courageously  attacked the Minister of Agriculture  for interfering with appointments to  the militia, for political purposes. Mr.  Fisher caused the name of a tory to he  cancelled, and his action was resented.  Canada has lost the most capable  officer ever at the head of the militia,  because of this machine interference.  H. W. Edwards,  Taxidermist.  DEER    HEADS,   .HIRDS,     ANIMALS  MOUNTED.

The general demand i.s for good  work at low rates, I can supply this  better than any one else as I do all my  own orders.  I don't ask nor want exlravagnnt  profits. Competition is keen east iind  west of me, which I rather enjoy its  nothing can move me fro'm Revelstoke  as a taxidermist' but God Almighty or  C. P. R. freight rates.

To those who expected a revision of  the tariff in keeping with the needs of  ^ ^AQ^djmi^indiistrv.^tlva^uLteL-ance^of.  the Finance Minister was a bitter disappointment.  The   tariff  amend ments   were  like  those   of   the Liberal  party for some  years past, sand  for the people's eyes,  in the hope  that all classes may he led  to believe  that  the Government is all  things to all men, and capable of serving God and  mammon.     IL wa.s not a  business revision.      It  was  an opportunist   effort of   the  shallowest kind.  ->  The free trader and   the protectionist  are to be gulled  by  its valueless concessions   to   both sections.    Incidentally   the   great .Standard Oil Trust i.s  allowed to send its products into Carr- j  ada   at   much   lower   duties, and the |  experience of the past will undoubtedly be repeated and the money so saved  ���������will go into  the pockets of the monopolists and not into the pockets of the  consumer.  False Ueth and goats were placed  on the free list, a boon which will fully  meet with the commendation of the  electoi'S.  Mr. Fielding boasted of the large  surpluses he had taken from the taxpayers. In S- years he has collected  Sy~,SS0,00I more than he needed to  carry on the affairs of Canada. But  with these immense overflows, he Iras  TENDER.      .

It  was due to an attempt made by certain Fenians to release two of their  ���������omrndes, named Hurvc and Casey,  .'rom tlio Clerkenwell House of Detention, by blowing down tlie outer  wall of the gaol with gun-powder.  Tho plan resulted in failure, so far  ns securing the escape of tiro prisoners was concerned. Drrt tiro results  of tlio explosion were suillcicntly  dreadful.  The wall in question was about 25 1  feet  high,  2  feet 3  inches  thick      at  tho bottom, and somo 1*1 inches thick  at  the top.     A  considerable      length  of this was levelled to the ground.  Tho actual prison building was not  much damaged, although every window wn.s shattered by the concussion,  while the side immediately facing the  outer wall in which tho breach was  made, nnrl about 150 feet from it,  showed the marks of tho bricks that  had boon hurled against it by tho  explosion.  Immediately opposite the prison  wall, however, on the outside, were  a number of small houses, for the  most part let out in tenements to  the poorest of tho poor, and those  sufTfTercd terribly.  Six of the dwellers therein were  killed outright, r ml six more died  Inter on from their wounds. About  120 were injured, fifteen permanently. The damage to the property was  about Pl 00,000.  Now tho remarkable part of the affair is that tho Government appears  to have frnown all-along that some  such oulrago was contemplated, yet  took no pains to prevent it.  Thc rro vernor of the gaol nlso knew  or" it, but beyond confining the prisoners to their cells on that day, he  did   nothing.  It would, ono would have imagined,  have been easy enough to patrol tho  wall on the outside so as to effectually frustrate the scheme of the conspirators. But no one seems to have  thought  of  doing  anything.  The men wheeled their barrel of  gunpowder through the streets in the  most open manner, past a policeman  who -was looking nonchalant.lv on.  This wns on the 12th. Hut on that  dny tho fuse "fizzled out," and con-  souuently tho explosion fnilod to  come "olT.  " The plotters did not seem to trouble much, however. They returned,  laughing and chatting, and carted  their barrel  whence it came.  Before quitting the spot tlrey pitched     an     indinrtrbber   ball     over     the  complices, wns put upon hir. trial at  a special session of tho Central Crirn-  ilinl Court, the judges being Lord  Chief .lustico Cockburn and Baron  Brninwoll.  They wore chnrgod, jointly and severally, with tho wilful murder of Sarah Ann Hodgkinson���������ono of tho victims of tho explosion���������and they pleaded "Not Guilty."  The trial, which resulted in the acquittal of all thi* prisoners suvo  Barrett, lasted exactly a week, and  some extraordinary ovidenco was given.  It wns proved, for instance, that a  regular code of signals existed, by  menus of which the dwellers in the  upper stories of many of tho bouses  in Corporation Lane, overlooking  tho gaol yard, were able to communicate with the prisoners Inside.  It also came out that, both Burke  and Casey, as well os their friends  outside, were in riossossiori of a supply of "sympathetic," or invisible  ink, anri that, with its aid, tliey held  a regular correspondence, letters lacing written on tho paper in -which  thc prisoners'  food was wrapped.  Burke had also-prepared a rough  plan, showing the position of a sewer which run beneath the outer prison wall, and where consequently, it  was expected, tho foundations of the  structure would bo weakened, allowing it to bo blown down with moro  ease and  certainty.  Barrett was not tho re.il leader in  tho project. That "honor" belonged  to a person named Murphy, known  in tho ranks of the "Brotherhood" aa  "Captain Murphy."

Tho British public lias had its .fill  of the St'lferfan Railway as seen by  travellers in tho piping times of  peace. Yet thia vast enterprise that  drained tho money-bags of Russia is  to-day thc chief interest, not only of  the pooplfc of the Our, but of all who  follow tho progress of tho great  struggle in the far east, writes a  correspondent of lhe London Express.  It is the artery of tho war. If the  accident of nature or the schemes of  tho Japanese should fasten a/ligature  upon it, tho Russian cause in tho far  easy must decay and perish.  Distances upon this lino aro almost  beyond comprehension, In Siberia it  stretches for 3,500 miles; in Manchuria for 1,44*4 more. In othor  words, a traveller from Port Arthur  to the frontier of European Russia  passes over a distance greater than  from Southampton to Rio Janeiro,  and almost four times longer than  from Londca to Gibraltar.  In ninny liarts the track has been  hastily laid. In ono spot it is broken by nn inland sea. There arc dangers by floods, by raiding brigands,  by snowdrifts, and last but not least,  by tho military advance of tho Japanese. Will it hold out against these  risks? That is tho- question time  alone can  tell us.  LINE GUARDED.  On February 5 I sighted Dalny in a  Russian steamer. It hod been stated  that . the harbor was already mined,  but tliis I can scarcely believe. for  we passengers were not sent below;  no boat came out to pilot or warn  us, and our ship steered straight for  tlie wharf, without any show of anxiety from captain  or crew.  Tho harbor is unfortified savo for  tho hypothetical mines. The town  is a melancholy place, newly built  in nn arid, tireless desert, over which  the bitter .winds blew viciously beneath the cruel  winter sky.  I entered tho armored train  and away we 'went a a  good 15 miles an hour over tho  broad plains"' of Manchuria. Sentries  and blockhouses dotted the lino. The  track was fairly laid���������as, indeed, it  ought to be, considering that.Russia  spent ,over ninety millions oh.her  Manciiurian system. There aro plenty of rich officials, however, who-grew  to sudden wealth while superintending  its construction. ,.  Before we camo to Mukden the lino  passed through a low-lying hollow in  tho land. The place was evidently  considered flood-threatened, for an  iron bridge was . in course of construction to our right. The spring  thaws will give great trouble ,here  unless tlio work be completed in time,  which I "now "think is extremely unlikely.  There wero some curious peoplo- on  ��������� tho train." Before wo reached Lako  Baikal I liad come in contact with  Poles, Lithunians, men from the  Baltic and Black Sea, Caucasians,  Germans and Circassians.  Near Harbin I heard bf the outbreak of war,- and great.was tho discussion" that arose. Tho "man who"  sat next to mo was a Polish student,  who had been exiled to Siberia for  having Socialistic books; in his possession. ITo had been summoned to  join a regiment.at Irkutsk, and spoke  very bitterly on the subject.  "They have broken up my family,"  he said, "for both my brothers are in  prison, and now they havo asked me  to fight for them. We Poles do not  forget. Socialism is springing up  among us.

Many Japanese and Koreans Never See the Sun.  It is not generally known that in  tho empire which boasts the name  of "The Land of the Rising Sun,"  thoro are no fewer than 50.000 persons who never seo that sun. About  two per cent, of the blind in Japan  gain a livelihood by music, the remaining 98 per cent, sustain themselves almost entirely ns annua  (shampooers, prnctisers of a kind  of massage). Tho amraa of olden  dnys was the successful competitor  of tho physician, whoso placo in part  hc filled, but tho introduction of  western medical science has told  ngninst tho blind with their unscientific method of massage, and  tho vast majority of tho 50,000 are  threatened   with  destitution. ,.. . ,. ���������       _   , .

One account states that a little soil  is . placed in half an orango from  which tho inside has been removed.  In this sdil is placed tho sood which  it is desired to grow, As the roots  burst through tho skin of tho orango  they nro cut off with a sharp knife.

To tend that fire,  to see that it never runs thc least  risk of going.out, i.s the first, the  most important duty of every Korean house-wife.

They  are Morally  and Physically  Degenerating.  The    truth     is   that   the   Russian  peasant,  3 00,000,000 of  him,   is under present conditions slowly starving to death.     Ifis average earnings  in the central provinces aro 17   .and  18    kopecks   (8    to 9 cents)   a    day  throughout tho year: during tho busiest harvest time they rise to 1111 average of 27 to .'10 kopecks( 111 to 18  cents)  n day: during thc whole winter he and  hi.s  family earn  nothing.  His diet consists of mctil,  flour   and  grits,    cabbage    nnd    potatoes;    no  moat,  excepting  three  limes  a year.  His diet is  insufficient and less than  in  any  civilized ..country,   'ilie  hovel  he lives in is two nnd a hnlf   yards  long    and   ono  and  one-half    yards  high, hurboring thc whole family and  whatever  cattle  ho possesses.   Those  data nro taken  from ��������� ollicial  sources.  Is it a   wonder   that    the Russian  peasant  has  morally  nnd  physically  degenerated ?     That the women arc  immoral,   dreading   maternity,     and  given to a frightful extent to  Infanticide ?     That the men  nro noninds,  leaving      wives    nnd      children    for  months,       often   years,     trying     to  earn  something In  town     or in    far  away  districts ?      That  tho  recruiting in these central provinces   shows  progressively   physical   unfitness    for  the army ?     That- tho health  of tho  women is bad,  and that the rate of  increase  in thc  population     in    this  "black-earth bolt" has    dropped    to  0.20,  against   1   1-2    in  tho     whole  empire ?   4   "James," said his stern papa, who  was himself suffering from ficalitics,  "I am seriously displeased with you.

Box    SIX),  but  long enough to have visited upon  its head the   sins of   all previous governments    since    Confederation.     A  short time ago a statement in.regard  to  the   inefficiency of   the surveys of  Crown  lands opeir for pre-emption in  British Columbia   appeared in several  provincial   papers   and wits moreover  telegraphed to Liberal   newspapers  in  Eastern Canada.    Startling   headlines  proclaimed this ils a specimen of Conservative rule in,thc liands of  Premiei*  McBride.     Among    otiier   papers   it  appeared in the Winnipeg Free Press,  and the Premier was asked for a statement in connection.     We  cannot   do  better at present  than* reproduce" the  Hon. Mr. McBride's remarks in   reply,  which are certainly clear and effective:  "To some extent the statement that  settlers cannot be  furnished   with   information as to the  exact location  of  lauds open   for   pre-emption   is   tme.  That, however, is due in a mens ure  to  a system which has been   in   vogue in  this province from the  outset;   but   in  a much greater degree to the peculiar  physical conditions which, exist in British  Columbia,  whereby any comprehensive,   systematic survey  of   lands  such as   exist   in   Manitoba   and   the  Northwest is simply impossible.     The  surveys in Manitoba nnd  the   Northwest, which, by thc way,  wero  made  by the  Dominion  Government,   were  simplicity  itself���������practically a matter  of drawing lines over   a   flat   surface.  The available revenue of the province  for over fifty years would  not be sufficient to survey British  Columbia in  the same way.    But in any event, it  is unfair to blame the present. Government, which has heen in power for less  than a year, or to 3'efer to it as Conservative administration. All previous  administrations in this province were  composite govern ments. Mr. XV. C."  Wells, who was Chief Commissioner  of Lands and Works in the Dunsmuir  and Prior Governments, was a Liberal  and I heard iij> blame attached to him  during the three years of his office  on that score'.  "As a matter1 of fact,  the system is  the result of   -what   happened   in   the  very early days.   Persons took up land  as they found it and practically to any  extent.   This was true up until about  1S01 and 1S92,' when the sale  of  lands  in large blocks was prohibited. As one  valley opened up after another, settlers  staked their land without  waiting for  surveys, with  the  result that  within  easy reach of Lhe settled districts practically all the land fit for agriculture  has been alienated   from   the Crown.  There are still small detached areas on  the North Thompson river in Cariboo,  in Similkameen,   East Kootenay arid  up the coast of the mainland open for  pre-emption  and the government has  under   consideration   at   the   present  time the best.jnethods of dealing with  them; but the amount of money necessary to make effective surveys in any  one year is quite  beyond our'means.  The north end of Vancouver  Island,  Buckley valley   and   Nechaeo   valleys  have been surveyed.    The   latter, two  are in the northern interior',   to which  the government   does   not   encourage  immigration until the country isopened  tTp^hy^i'irilwriy^cOinrnunicationT    lt~rs"  easy to criticise the administration of  public lands, but one   has   to   understand   the peculiar   conditions  which  exist in British Columbia to appreciate  how difficult it is  to provide for settlement of an area over .'"85,000 square  miles in extent, which by nature of the  rugged exterior, must of necessity be  at wide intervals'."

Perfumes, etc. We  have always  ��������� Something  New on hand. Our stock has  been built up weekly with a  view to meet the demand for  New  Government Ownership.  For years the wage-earners in Canada have  Ireen   endeavoring to get one  of the political parties pledged to government ownership of railways.    This  plank was adopted by the Conservative  association  of  British Columbia some  years ago, the  Li he*rajs and Independents also incorporating   this   plank in  their  respective   platforms   later on.  Now the   Liberal-Conservative party  of Canada has adopted this plank and  will appeal to the electorate with government ownership of  public utilities  as one of the issues.    As the Conservative   party  has taken  the initiative in  all great movements for the advancement  of  Canada, it  is only in accord  with   their previous  policy that they  should be the first to take up this very  important, matter.     With Hon. It. L.  Borden  as  leader, should the Conservatives have a majority in tho house,  there is no doubt  but what the party  pledges  will be carried out.    The government, ownership   plank   will place  Ralph  Smith   and  A. YV. Puttee in a  rather awkward position.-   Both claim  to   be   r^ibor,   but ih reality have always   been Liberals.    Now they must  either support the Conservative platform or  step  down and out.���������Poplar  Nugget.  ^Artic_Ie_s_in_ey(ii'y_. line.
