G B, HUME & CO,  Department Store  BIG BATTLE  IMMINENT  May Commence at any Hour���������  Russian Forces Rapidly Reorganizing���������Japs approaching  Tie Pass  New    Yohk,    March    15.���������A    St.  Petersburg despatch to the Times says  according to the latest news from Tie  Pass, the Japanese are within a few  miles of that position and a resumption  of fighting is hourly expected. The  general staff, however, declares that  the enemy is too much exhausted for  an immediate attack.  According to General Kuropatkin  the Russians are fast reorganizing  their forces, and ou the alert.  According to General Mastoff the  extent of the loss to the third army  is still unascertained. General Kuropatkin is highly commended for leading the onslaught against General  Nogi, on March 10, which is believed  to have prevented the complete loss of  the second and third armies.  There is no-news of General Ren-  neukanipff. It is feared that his division of Trans-Baikal Cossacks shared  the fate of the Caucasus cavalry brigade. Two officers, Albrecht and  Hartmann, report that they are the  only survivors 'of that brigade wliich  remain to tell the tale of the fighting  of Friday and Saturday, when ��������� the  cavalry were sacrificed in order to  cover the retreat of the rear guard.  A Japanese force of infantry and  artillery is repotted to be approaching  Vladivostok. This gives rise to the  belief that siege is contemplated.     .   -  In connection wilh the announcement of .GeneralKuropatkin's offer  to resign comes a statement from an  equally authoritative source, that  General - Kuropackin attributes his  ���������failure to thc inadequacy of his .reinforcements and, that he points put  the hopelessness of - achieving'., any  conclusive result, until' overwhelming  forces are in the-east. * '-'- ������������������"---- ^  .

Kamloops had a" visitor on Wednesday, W.-'X. McKenzie, whose romantic  history was given  some   months ago  iu the Sentinel.     He   was on his way  to Chicago to see his only   sister,  and  so far as he knows, his   sole relative,  whom he has not seen since they were  children together 55 years ago.     Left  orphans    when   very    young,     two  brothers  and   their  one  sister were  taken   care   of    by  widely separated  people.   Since then the brothers alone  have met and that only once, iu 1S80.  Mr. McKenzie crossed   the   plains to  this province in company with the now  gold commissioner,] G. Tunstall, J. A.  Mara, etc., and came down the Fraser  to Quesnel and tbence to Cariboo.   He  afterwards lived in Kamloops,   Revelstoke and other points in B.  C,  and  finally drifted to the Yukon.     While  there   his   sister  advertised   in    the  Sentinel in the  hope  of   finding   the  brother she had hot seen or heard of for  over half a century. Mr. Tunstall saw  the advertisement and at once communicated with Mr. McKenzie.   The  letter went to Barkerville, but he had  left   there   for the Yukon, and there  the letter followed him to Dawson,  It  there  fell into* the hands of  another  Wm. McKenzie,* who opened and read  the letter aud  was  on  the  point of  returning it to the post office when he  noticed on the hotel register the name  .of Wm. X. McKenzie.     "Perhaps this  is for you," he said, and  then for the  first time the  brother learnt that his  sister was living, woll and happy.    In  a few days  they will bo reunited, Mr.  McKenzie having left here for Chicago  yesterday morning.���������Kamloops   Sentinel. - .   .

This information has reached Washington from an authoritative source  and accurately sets forth the present  programme of the Tokio war office. *  Revelstoke Football Club.  At a meeting on Tuesday evening  it was decided to reorganise the  Revelstoke Football Club for the  ensuing year. The prospects are exceedingly bright fora successful season  as there are several new players in  the city. It was decided to leave the  election of the -executive committee  until the next meeting which will be  held some time next week of which  due notice will be given. All those  interested in football are cordially invited. Theie were about forty members enrolled at the meeting and  everybody seemed to be enthusiastic  so that the probabilities are that  Revelstoke will be heard from in loot-  ball circles during the season.  K. of P. Notice.  All members of the Knights of  Pythias arc specially requested to  attend the regular meeting on March  22nd. Business of importance will be  voted upon.  Stewart McDonald,  K.ofR. andS.  ""'The'Lat'e^H. j. Bourne  The death of -Mr. Henry J. Bourne,  which took" place, at his. residence  early _ Saturday morning last, March  llth, "will be.mdurried by a large circle  of friends in the city and throughout  the ' province, ��������� where 7" Ke j was best  known. AboufcVtwo, weeks ngo'-.Mv.  Bourne was taken seriously, ill and  was: confined^ to^Jsis v ifoiabr -but-; his  death, while expected by the friends  at -the bedside for "the twenty-four  hours previous, was not 'looked for by  the public generally and the announce-,  ment made shortly after 8 o'clock on  Saturday morning that 'Mr. Bourne  had just passed away was received  with genuine sorrow. In the death of  "Harry Bourne," as he was familiarly  called by his intimate friends, Revelstoke loses one of its pioneer business  men, and one who was esteemed aud  respected by the entire community  for his many excellent qualities. In  life Harry Bourne was regarded with  affection, he was a loyjil friend and of  a generous disposition, always taking,  an active interest. in- any movement  tending to the advancement of the  city and district, he will be sadly  missed in this cily. To his wife who  was at his side continually dining his  illness, and at the time of his death  with the brothers John, Frank and  Edward, the Herald speaking on  behalf of the friends here, extends  heartfelt sympatliies_to-theiruin their.  sad bereavement.  The funeral of the lato Mr. Bourne  took place on Moi.day afternoon from  his late residence to St. Peter's church  where the Rev. C. A. Procunier  preached the funeral sermon paying  a high tribute to the deceased, and  thence to the cemetery where tho  remains were deposited in their last  resting place. A marked evidence of  thc respect in wliich the. deceased was  held was shown hy the large attendance of citizens desirous of paying a  tribute of respect. The funeral was  one of the largest ever held in this  cith. The following were tho pall  bearers : Messrs. W. M. Brown, II.  N. Couisier, Chas. Holten, M. J.  O'Brien, F. Young -and W. Morris.  Wreaths were sent by the following  sorrowing relatives and friends :���������Mr.  and Mrs. E. J. Bourne, Mr. and Mrs.  F. H. Bourne, Mr. and- Mrs. J. D.  Bourne, Mr. and Jlrs. J.

Montreal Journal Predicts a  Big Political Revolution and  that Further Resignations  are  Probable.  Montreal, March 15.���������La Presse  publishes a despatch from Ottawa,  statiug that Sir Wilfrid Laurier has  decided not to yield an inch on the  educational clauses of the autonomy  bill, and that rather than do so tho  premier would prefer to see bis government defeated. The despatch adds  that the country is on the eve of a big  political revolution and it declares  that fourteen Liberal members have  signified to Laurier their intention of  opposing the bills, and that another  prominent cabinet minister is likely  to resign on the question.  Harold Nelson Company  On Tuesday evening,.-whal may be  well  said  to be  Harold Nelson's best  production here���������namely "Paul Kau-  var"���������was played to adarge audience.  The   plot   ceuties   aiound   the   time  of     the   French   Revolution,   and   is  .full of dramatic incident and pathos.  The   staging of  tho    various   scenes  met with   great  approval, especially  that   depicting   the    dream   of Paul  Kauvar;   the-effect   of   which     was  heightened " by Mr.   Harold   Nelson's  realistic   actiug   of   tlie difficult  title  role..  His various pathetic scenes wilh  "Diane" (Miss Helen Scott) were.well  presented,' aud gave him scope for the  use of his dramatic powers  which   he  made tbe most effective  uso   of.     As  virtue needs but villainy to commend  itrto   our    sympathies   Mr.     Nelson  could not  have   bad   a     better    foil  than      Mr.    Clifford      Lane - Bruce,,  whose cunning   schemes,   underlying  the    whole     situation,     ended      so  disastrously for himself.     Mr. Bruce's  acting throughout was of .that clean  and finished style which .we know so  'well and:lu\ve always-appreciated in  .him.'' General Delardche,' whose unfortunate' social   position    surrounds  him with dangers, was ably presented  by Mr. Wm.^BIake, and' left no room  for criticism.     The' same may be said  too,   of  Honore   Albert Maxime (Mr.  George Anderson) and the other male  members of   the company who form  together a strong cast.   The burner  ous touches'introduced  by Dodolphe  Potin (Wm. Yule) and his wife-Nanette  (Miss   Crete   Cbadwick)   never failed  to     raise     the     spirits     of      their  audience     at     the     proper       time,  and showed that they weie not theie  without   good    leason   'and    better  appreciation."   "Diane de  Beaumont"  who   elicited the   sympathy   of   the  audience, was splendidly portrayed by  Miss Helen Scott.     In her distracting  scenes  with   Paul   and" her   exciting  emotional situations she appeared  to  good advantage and   amply   justified  the praise she elicited.     To sum tt up,  this emotional   drama was   well   presented, and Mr.  Harold Nelson  must  _haye_felt_gratjfital_thstf^his efforts_iu_et  with such well merited   success.     He  returns   on   the   23rd   of   this month  when he will present "Richelieu."  The Piatt Fanning Company  Tbis Company opened their flrst  visit to a good house last night with a  production of "Tbe Stowaway." Although this style of play seems hardly  suited to tho Revelstoke playgoer's  taste, yet its performance was a good  one, and well staged. The actors  threw themselves 'into tlieir work  heart aud soul lo please their audience,  and succeeded. As Tom InglissMr.  Frank Farming's pleasing persoiialitj*,  added to his capable work, al all times  elicited the kindly sympathy of those  who witnessed his struggle against  the villainous schemes of bis cousin  Charles Etherington, (Russell Reid)  whose thankless task was well performed throughout. Florence Etherington (Miss Molice Campion) up to  thu time of her untimely end at the  hands of her husband Charles, evinced,  as did Althea Dale (Miss Georgia  Francis) a winning manner, combined  with capabilities of a high mder.  Dicky Dials (Sydney I'latt) was good  his dialect being flawless, and at times  most convincing. Of the rest of the  company too, not forgetting the able  impersonation of Chucky, a newsboy,  by Miss Juliette Chandler, we can only  speak in praise. Tonight will be  presented "Tennessee's Pardner", and  on Saturday night "Shall we Forgive  Her," two plays in a lighter vein  with a pleasing strain of comedy  running through them.  Cost Him His Life  '���������John  Olds lias  the finest  cougar  skin I have seen for many a day," said  a well   known   Rosslander,   who   has  just returned from a visit to  Halcyon  Hot Springs.     "Olds   lives   with   his  family on Arrow   lake   aboul   a  mile  and a half south  of Steele's   landing,  A few days since his  wife heard the  dog barking and   went   to   the   front  door and much to her surprise saw the  family   dog   running   as   fast  as   he  could, while bounding behiud him was  a large and tierce-looking cougar. The  dog took refuge under  the  porch aud  was barking like one possessed,  while  thc cougar stood in front of the porch  and scratched and tore at the ground  in front of the purch in  an endeavor  to ieach the dog. Mrs. Olds cluscd the  door and shouted to her husband, who  was in the barn in   the   rear  of   the  house.   " He   came   running   in  aud  thinking that it was a lynx, instead'of  a cougar, took his shotgun, instead of  his rifle, and hurried to the front of  the house. Just as soon as he appeared  the dog, encouraged by reinforcements  in the shape of bis master with a shotgun, came from underneath the-porch  and began worrying the  tiger.  - In  a  second or two the cougar had grabbed  bim and was hurrying away with long  jumps towards tho woods.     Jlr.  Olds  fired a charge of  bird  shot into  him  and the big cat dropped tbe dog and  turned   and snailed and'growled at  him.   Then he quickly  picked up (he  dog and away he went when a second  charge   of   shot   was   fired   into   the  cougar's body, but,us the animal was  sonic distance away the shot did not  do   much   barm.    Jfhen   the   cougar  disappeared into the wnodsl    Mr. Olds  returned to   the--house,'-'secured   his  rifle and tracked the cougar for some  distance.'   Finally'he found  half the  dog's body buried in tbe snow, part of  it had'been "eaten  and  the  remainder  buried   for   another  meal.    Mr.  Olds  put strychnine on the, .b.uried  half of  the dog., The. next morning when bc  rcturnecy to thfe scene he   found the  dead body  oft* the, cougar.

Jt is nature's plan lo grow  the framework first and lay on fut  afterward, nnd if lhe animal is improperly nurtured .so ns lo modify  its hone, muscles nnd internal organs, o\en to a slight extent, iu a  few generations the ill effects become  vory marked.  'the best food, therefore, for a  growing hog is that wliich gives  strength to the bones and development to thc muscles, increasing lho  fibre of tlic liver and other internal  organs. This gives a greater capacity for thc circulation of blood, supplying the elements of nutrition to  all  parts   of  the  body.  Corn, either whole or ground,  more generally fed. Jt is grown  the   farm,   relatively   cheap,   rich  carbohydrates     and     having   for  special     function   tho  production  fat.    It .should not  be  fed Without ri  full    knowledge     of     its  composition  and limitation. For the breeder  who is looking for greater development of framework corn should constitute  only  a   third   to   half  of     tho  ration,   thc  lesser amount,  given     to  the youngest, animal.  Investigations    in    thc feeding     of  corn  alone und  in combination    with  more protein foods, such as middlings,   skim  milk  ond  dried     blood,  show that there was about half as  much blood in the animal with   corn  fed  pigs  and     that  where  middlings  were fed the livers weighed 48 ounces  against 31 ounces with  pigs fed  corn  nlone.      The  tenderloin     and     other  muscles  were more greatly 'developed  from     protein-rich     rations  and     the  breaking  strength   of   the   thigh   bone  was 8SO pounds  with  the corn  meal  ration,  but .-503    pounds where    thc  pigs   were   fed     milk,   middlings      or  blood.  Middlings   nnd   other   carbonaceous  mill by-products are said to have   a.  tendency   to   produce  soft  pork     and  sliould    be  fed    in   connection     with  corn    meal,  barley or  other    grains.

Where skim  milk  is available with  corn  or rice meal,  it is  one of    the  best, rations. Investigations curried  on  at the  Wisconsin  experiment  station    showed  tlfat   where   one     to  three pounds skim  milk was fed wilh  one pound!corn mcnl, 327 pounds of  milk   would   save   100   pounds   menl.  likewise,   when   the  proportion       of  tkim  milk to  corn'meal was 3  to f>,  5  to   7   and   7  to   9  pounds  to     one  pound     meal.     440,   574    and      552  pounds    respectively    of     skim milk  would save 100 pounds meal.  1'igs      weighing  75   to  100  pounds  will  consume  3J   to  4 pounds    grain  feed  per  day,   and   whore  skim   milk  is equivalent to one pound    grain.

That the tnrilT of the United  Stntes. however, performs its functions as n protective measure bettor  than does that of the Dominion is  shown bv tho fact that whilo 00.por  cent, of Canada's Imports were products of the United States, of Canada's total exports only 33 2-3 per  cont. wore tuken by --ho United  States.

A common  trick was to introduce a metal tube  into the throat, to prevent suffocation; nnd another wns to support  tho body by.cords in such a way us  to remove the strain from the neck  and thus make strangulation impossible; While executioners and doctors alike were bribed to release tho  victims boforo life was extinct. '  ���������-Henrv Hall, wno was sentenced to  death in 1775 on a charge of counterfeiting stamps, wus cut down after hanging for? a quarter of an  hour, and a few hours later was  smuggled on board a boat which  was about, to sail for America. Ho  reached New York in time to lako  part in... tho. War of. Independence,  rapidly reached the rank of major,1*  and died forty years later ono of  the wealthiest and iinost respected  men in;? Pennsylvania. William Buell, who1.1 was hanged at-Tyburn, in  1740, was less fortunate in his  escape from the hangman. After  hanging for twenty minutes ho wns  taken to the Surgeons' Hall and recovered under the stimulus of  THE. piSECTfNG-KNIFE.  Within a few hours he was well as  over; but it was not long before ho  fell once, more into the clutches of  the law. and this timo lie was transported for life to -tho American  plantations:  Moro than ono inan it was found  n. physical impossibility to bang  under tlio old conditions of strangu-  lntion. One Daniel Tiobsoii, according to the Observer of January  I (ith,, 1.792, was actually hanged six  times, "the total period.'of suspension being no less than two and a  half hours;* and. on eneh occasion he  did not'oven lose 'consciousness. According to the medical "evidence he  owed liis immunity from strangulation, lo. his .very . muscular neck and  to a peculiar construction of his  windpipe." This record, howevor,  was --handsomely beaten by a French-  tiian, Jean- Marmnnde, who survived  no fewer tlian eleven "attempts by  the hangman on  his  life.  Elizabeth'Clruy, who. was sentenced  to dcntli in 1756 for' stealing a log  of mutton, recovered consciousness  an hourafler she was cut down, niid  .survived   to -.become,  the -mother of.  iii lurge family; and it was one of  her grandsons who. aft.er Sir .Samuel Homilly, did more thnn any other  man to secure the passing in 1S23  of the statues which exempted  about iv hundred felonies, such ns  that, for which his grandmother had  been condemned lo death, from eap-  ilnl   punishment.  1 HOME.  i  *  rich,  doll-  mo-  tca-  HOUSEHOLD HINTS.

She was a famous  horsewoman, ami often rode' for . a  day through her own forest, attended only by a small mounted guard.  One day she encountered a young  man lo whom she whs at once much  attracted. She asked him lo return  with her to her caslle. but he had  some gallant adventure already in  hand. uiKp'ungrueiously declined the  invitation.

A writer recently wrote of a visit  she received from ��������� a well-known  toucher, who presented somo ideas  on the'subject of the proper feeding  of school-children which seem too  valuable to be kcjit for private use.  She began by shying that "allhor  working life sho had boon hampered  by a delicate digestion, and that she  ascribed the trouble entirely������������������ to not  having had enough to cnt ns a growing girl ut'school." Tbis caused  surprise to her auditors, who knew  on what liberal scale her oal/ly homo  life hud been arranged "Yes," she  continued; "I? know it sounds odd  that 1. should suy that, and wero  my dear m'ofhor living she would be  horrified that, any child of hors  sliould complain of being starved,  bf.it it is nevertheless true.' Then  she went bn to explain that, living  in the country, they wero too far  from the school lo admit their returning for the noon meal. Tho cold  lunch given them to take was substantial enough in its way, but afforded little temptation to a fastidious appetite, the consequence being  that the pie or cake which was always included in the luncheon would ���������  be eaten, and the rest either 'traded'" or. given away: Meantime the  substantial hot meal of the family  had, been eaten at. noon, and when  TluT1&hildrcii=i'etiirne[l-ft"om~sch()oliitho'=-|  supper was tea, preserves, hot biscuits, and cake, so that only on  Saturdays and Sundays did the  children have a really  'square meal.'*  "That this is by no   means an isolated  case  we  all  know,   and  it   behooves  the mother of growing children lo bowni'o lest, her boys and girls  also     develop ilyspsia and in      later **  life  lay    it    to  lier  door!   In  many,  households   lhc   problem is not     an  easy  one  to solve.   Fpr very     many  reasons dinner must como at    noon,  and  two  dinners  are  more  than  the  most loving and energetic mother can  bo . oxpeL-ted    to   provide,   especially  when,  as  is so  often  the case,     sho  cooks     lhem      herself.   The   .teacher  whose  words  formed1 the  basis      for  this ' parngraph     made  tho practical  suggestion   that   more  caro      should  bc exercised in. putting up the    rioon  hmeheons, and that; when possiblo anV  arrangement should   be  made   in   tha  schoolhouse  by  which  things    token,  by the children could be"heated.  She   .  described   one ��������� country    schoolhouse  which  instituted     an  oilstove.      The  older girls'took turns in heating tho   ;  soup  or   stew  or oven  milk   brought   |  by the scholars and  the plan worked   ;  vevy  well.    It  is also a good  idea to   ,:  have something substantial  for    sup-   j  per,  if il  is only  porridge    or    cold   !  meat.   Many     a     housewife1, 'spends   |  hours     over  baking hcr cake    which   a  would    lie used to liotter  advantage  ij  in     giving  her  children   more     solid   I;  food." i  A  CYNIC. 1  "Let me see, a cynic is a   man whq^ 1  is   tired    of the world,  is  he  not?"   j  the young student of language asked.

Although he saw whero ho had  done wrong the -sympathy of the  girls w*us very grateful to him. and  restored his -confidence.

Suddenly there was a croaking, groaning sound heard, and the  floor bogn.n to sink. Those nearest  tho windows, .which were open, ran  towards lhem; but only three reached them beforo the building collapsed, lho walls bent inward,, and machinery, flour, men and women went  crashing  through   to  the  basement.

No timo was  to bo lost, for coals from tho fur-  nnco had started a fire, and as gas  pipes hnd boen twisted oil", thc blazo  would spread rapidly. On reaching  tho third floor a portion of tho walls  wliich had fallen across the escapo  wus encountered, and they could go  no further. Already the smoko and  boat  were  in  tlieir  faces.

"Go to the second floor!" ho suddenly shouted to the firemen, and ho  disappeared inward over tlie broken  wall.  W'Jiat had led him to take such a  perilous steli? Lying head downward over a beam, ho saw.-Mr. Jacques and determined", lo rescue him.  Sliding along a stool girder which  inclined that way, Joo jumped to  tho placo where the���������'.foreman lay,  with his clothes caught on a si^ikc.  Hc was unconscious but still breathing. 1-Ila.d it not been for that 'spike,  he would havo boon buried under the  ruins at lho first crash. But other  parts of the wall were occasionally  falling in. the fire was advancing,  and ho must be removed at onee or  loft to his fate.  Tlie beam, fortunately. wt\n leaning outward towards the point  where the wall had fallen nway from  it, and tho inner end was hanging  on a wire which was attuched to it.  When Jou leaped to thc beam, all  ho had to do was to shove the  shoulders of the unfortunate man on  to the timber, in order to niako it  safe to release his clothing; otherwise he. would fall, since ho Was: too  boayy foi- Joe: to hold.  To get Tilr. Jacques' shoulder, on  tho beam was n'o easy task, however, for Joe's strong;! h had boon  nearly usod up already; but it was  accomplished, after which Joe took  out his pocket knife to cut thc  clothing away' from the spike. It  is not likely that ho could have  guided tho body down the incline,  an'd all his labor would have Ibeen  lost but the firemen camo to his assistance, having hurried to the second floor to seo what: had become of  him.

In 1800 u strong appeal reached her  from Florence to como to the aid of  tho Italian hospital department in  lhe war with Austria; and the pathetic terms In which her inovitnblo  refusal wns couched show how painfully she felt her incapacity, and  how keen was her interest iu the  struggle for Italian unity.

MATTERS AT VICTORIA  It seems a foregone conclusion that  the McBride Government will weather  the session stronger than over. This  it deserves, for, whatever criticism  there may be of this or that particular  measure', it has the courage of its  convictions and has not been afraid to  tackle problems which a less resolute  Government would leave untouched.  Take the Assessment Act, the new  School bill also. No one will dispute  that the problems undertaken in both  of these pieces of legislation were controversial problems,���������and weak Governments bate controversial measures.  Then again no one can deny that  the financial problem wherever it has  shown itself has been resolutely faced  by the Government. Reductions of  expenditure have been made where it  was evident that money was not to be  had to meet it without borrowing and  unpopular taxation has been imposed  in the successful effort to make ends  meet.  Now   this   is   distinctly   what this  Province has wanted fora long time,���������  a   Government   which   is   not   to lie  intimidated   but;  which   will face the  problems   which   beset  us  and meet  them and not be   turned  aside either  by the threats   of   supporters   in   the  House   or   the   adverse   criticism   of  friends or? foes   outside.     There  has  been an immense growth of confidence  in the   future   of tbe Province since  the present   Government   took   office  and since the surplus was  announced,  and we   may   feel ���������assured'' this.,confidence must be   materially   increased  by the firm and   courageous   manner  in which the members of the   cabinet  liave conducted the work of the House  since the Session opened.  The next problem to be faced seems  to be the railway problem.

SIR WILFRID'^  EMBARRA SSMENT.  Ministerial papers in tho East are  discussing with considerable apprehension'the possibility lhat Sir Wilfrid himself may resign. Le Canada,  the Liberal organ in Montreal, ropoit-  ed on March 2that Sir Wilfrid had  advanced tbe view that his own re-  tirciiiL'iit was what the situation called for; that he had desired to nitiKc  way two years ago, when hi.s health  hail boon undermined, but had not  been ill lowed to do so; and that if  further resignations were to be tendered His Excellency over tho present  issue, hi.s own might desirably accompany thcm.  Tiie Montreal Herald, the Liberal  organ published in English in the same  city, look the report in Le Canada  seriously. In an article published on  March *l, it points out that thc stand  Sir Wilfrid took in his recent speech  wns identically the stand he took  when the Education clause in the  Northwest Territories Act was under  discussion in 1S91, and that lo put it  mildly, "It would be difficult in any  circumstances, to retreat from the po-  sition he took up in theso two  speeches." The Herald declares that  everyone must realize that "there are  in the. present situation possibilities  of calamity to the Liberal party."  On March 0 the Ottawa Free Press,  the Liberal organ at tho Capital,  manifested great, alarm over "the  hints that arc thrown out in some of  tho French newspapers, oftho possible  resignation of Sir Wilfrid'Laurier."  It says :  What developments may be in  store, should it become evident that  the country demands, after mature  consideration of the question, that  tho entire educational issue shall bc  left to the Provinces, can only be  guessed.  It says further, that "whatever  apprehension exists is certainly not  likely to be allayed by the declaration  in Mr. Bournssa's paper, Le Nation-  aliste," as follows :  Sir   Wilfrid   mav   still emerge  vic-  I torious from the crisis.    If he falls he  the   Government's    policy    on    that, -^ ��������� 8ole  hilll6l.,r.     lris fil��������� wH1 ho  topic?     AVe. are not in the secrets of  the Government but we will hazard u  guess that the railway problem* will be  dealt with no less resolutely than  the  other questions that have preceded it.  That is���������the Government will  neither  bonus beyond  its   means  nor on the  other hand refuse what assistance the  Province can and ought to give.    It is  a   pity   that   the   question should be j ^r��������� ,nfc() illlul0l.tllllt>.  complicated   by   the   evident    deter  that of a star, it. will illuminate the  darkness. Is there to be for hiin a.  crowning of his career? What more  beautiful! swan song than that of his  voice or bis words pioiiounced in  favor of right, justice and liberty.  This man to whom, despite differences  of opinion his adversaries give the  testimony that he has always looked  for peace and union���������this man may  fall under its weight.     "lie will enter  mination of the Grand Trunk Pacific  to "hold up"' the Province for Vv land  subsidy.    "We won't start building in  British Columbia till we please, if  you don't give us a subsidy," is what  the G. T. P. now says. If B.

And yet the Solid St en was elected  solidly on account of what Mr. Hays  wrote Senator Templeman. ff Mr.  Hays had said before the election  what his railway has said since, does  anyone believe the result of the election would have been the same in this  province?     It  is  certain at least that  As Mr. Borden has pointed out, Sir  Wilfrid departed from constitutional  methods in introducing an important  measure without obtaining the consent of some of his principal colleagues.  He apparently did not even submit  the bills to a caucus. Flis difficulties  are entirely of his own creating.���������  Winnipeg Telegram.

(See Victoria Times,  Vancouver World, and Nelson News.)  Tbo result of the Opposition fiasco  was plainly evident on Tuesday, when,  aft.er an hour or two of fierce hue  childish argument against it, the  School Act passed its second reading  by a vote of twenty-three to seventeen.  This Bill was considered on "Wednesday in committee of the whole, when  all the noii-couteiitious clauses were  dealt, with, and the House rose and  reported progress. Mutters will proceed further next week.  This sumo day (Wednesday) was  again embittered for the Opposition  by another crushing defeat, when the  Songhoes Heserve Bill passed its  second reading by a vote of twenty-  one to sixteen; the amendment, of Mr.  J. A. Macdonald, leader of thc Opposition, to the oll'ect that the matter  of disposing of the reserve lands  should be reserved for the Legislature,  meeting defeat by the same amount  of votes.  As it has pleased thc Opposition in  their wisdom (?) to make a matter of  violent partizan polities out of what is  simply a piece of provincialjlegislation,  it may interest your readers to know  something of lhe purpose of this  Songhees Reserve Bill, wliich was  introduced by tbe Chief Commissioner  of Lands and Works.  The Songhoes Heserve is a piece of  laud owned by the tribe of that name,  and lying practically in the business  heart of the City of Victoria. The  growth of the town has rendered its  presence u, serious nuisance, besides its  being a very bad thing for the Indians  themselves, who notoriously thrive  least when in closest relations with  tbe white man. The question of their  removal has been agitated for years ���������  the decision on the matter lying with  the Indians themselves and the Dominion Government. There is now  some piospect of the mat ter being  shortly adjust ed, and, by the law of  the land. Indian reserve property,  while administered by the Dominion  Government dining its tenure by the  Indians, fulls, np',11 being vacated,  under lhe control of the Provincial  Government. Action mu.**l, however,  lirst be taken in the Provincial Legislature to give elfect to this law and  enable the Lieut-Governor to act, and  it is with a view lo expediting this  that the present bill lias been brought  down. A moment's thought will show  the reasonableness of this.  Suppose, for instance, as is hy no  means unlikely, that the reserve  question is settled and tbe hind vacated  by the Indians within a few days or  weeks after the close of the present  session of the Legislature. Then the  land would. I'ovet't.-to., pi'ovlueial control, but the Provincial Government  would have no power to deal with it  unlil the passage of such effective  Legislation a= is now before the House.  Therefore the land could not be dealt  with or administered to any purpose  until the next session of the House,  unless a special session���������at vjst expense to the public -were called for  the sole and only pui pose of dealing  with the matter. It is to obviate such  an undesirable condition of affairs  that it is now proposed by the Provincial Government lo have all ready,  passed and prepared, the necessary  Legislation to enable them to act at.  once upon the in itter being settled between the Indians and the Dominion  Government.  But the Opposition decline to see it  thit wny. They say. so strong is  their dislike and distrust of a Conservative Government that the present occupants of the treasury benches  have designs upon this land���������for  opium factories, for a Grand_Jrunk  Pacific terminus, for a Great Northern  terminus, for a C. P. B. terminus, fpr  private residences   forthe  Ministers,  of that riding not believed what Mr.  Hays wrote to Mr. Templeman.  However we trusted a Lie and the  next step seems to be that we must  pay the penalty���������that is give ten  7ni!lion acres to the G. T. P. At least  the Coast papers seem to indicate that  the trend of public sentiment is tliat  way. We have ourselves a hope that  the McBride Government will refuse  but we do not dispute that a great  many Conservatives ijre prepared to  Rive the subsidy demanded. The Hon.  Edgar Dewdney for one has no doubt,  as h:s recent letter to the Colonist  shows, that it is financially better to  give the G. T. P. what it demands in  order to secure the resulting benefit of  early railway construction.  Whatever the Government decides  however   it   is   evident   that   it  will  account of which was sent you���������has,  by reason of the circumstances ancl  disgrace attending its failure, exercised  a most disastrous effect upon the  Opposition themselves. One nf the  most abominable features of the whole  atl'air was contributed by a prominent  up-country Liberal member, whose  assistance of the plot of his colleagues  took the remarkable form of breaking  his pledged word to pair with Mr.  Macgovvan of Vancouver���������that trusting gentleman remaining over in the  Toi minal City on Monday, resting in  fancied security upon the inviolate  nature of a Liberal promise. Tbe  expressions of public disgust at this  unparalleled piece of treachery have  been so strong and so general that the  Opposition has apparently been cowed  by the storm of contempt raised by  ils unparliamentary tactics.  At any rale, the past week has seen  an unbroken succession of Ministerial  victories,   with   majorities langing all  for business wharves and warehouses  for the Ministers' wives friends,  heelers and relatives, for any old  thing. And the discussions on the  floor of the House have been in consequence of a decidedly comic nature  ���������though far from creditable to the  Opposition's reputations for common  sense and intelligence.  For example, the people of Victoria  have never fully realized what a deep  and abiding devotion to their interests, what: a fierce love for themselves, smoulders in the bosoms of the  Mainland Liberal members. Tt was  quite unsuspected hitherto. Yet "ere  is John Oliver, of Delta,���������to quote ono  instance out of many���������standing up in  his place and imploring the House,  with tears in his eyes, to put away all  partizan feelings in this m titter ;j.pd  not let thi.s valuable land fall into the  poisonous clutches of the corrupt, and  corporation-bought McBride administration.  "Mr. Speaker," says John Olalla, in  piercing and agonized tones, "T. do  not say that this Government will  steal this land, but I do sny that they  may steal it. and, in the interests of  the fair city of Victoria and tbe  reputation of this Province, T implore  honourable gentlemen lo pause before  they expose this weak administration  to so strong a temptation."  And other Liberal members said as  much, and more. But the bill passed  its second reading, and their eloquence  was wasted.  EBHSBWggSggggBa������JliLgAL?.._'.'U'������JIJ������Hg^fi~^-''J'._.|������i'-LC^  the Provincial Secretary on Thursday,  and upon adjournment, the debate  thereon was resumed on Friday.  Withoutrgoing into a lengthy review  of this measure, full details of which  are by this time in the public's hands,  it may be remarked tliat it presents  several distinct improvements. Not  able among these is the settlement of  thc "legal fence"' quibble, wliich has  always beeu a*sore point. A much-  needed proviso is that intended to  protect tho beaver, whose complete  extermination' is threatened by the  senseless greed which has already  exterminated so many forms of animal life on this continent.  In this connection, considerable disappointment is felt in some quarters  that it i.s not proposed by the measure  to impose a gun-license���������a step warmly recommended b.v several ut the  deputations who have been visiting  tbe city to interview the Minister with  regard to the bill. The Government,  however, us was explained by Mr.  Fui tou in his remarks on moving the  second reading, did not consider tbe  time was ripe for that, as popular  opinion was still somewhat divided on  the matter. He thought, however,  that the principle was a good one.  The Bill passed its second reading.  There is little of public news as to  railway development, but it will interest your readers to kuow that the  Government is at present devoting.its  whole energy to the consideration of  a direct line by the shortest route from  the Kootenay to the Coast.  To the infinite importance of such  a project the Government is very  much alive; but it is holding firmly to  the policy so emphatically expressed,  both* last session.nn'd during this one,  ou the floor of the House by the  Premier, to the elfect that- no negotiations will be entered into, and no  railway. scheme 'entertained,,1 unless  emanating from bona fide parties who  intend and are in a position, financial  and otherwise, lo undertake and carry  out constructions of such a line themselves. No propositions coming from  the middle-man or go-between class of  railway promoter���������who simply desires  extensive" concessions of land or  money, in order that he may mate his  own bargain with the constructing  company���������will be considered for a  moment. Previous British Columbia  Governments have been two long the  plaything of Ibese nefarious industrial parasites; the game is now too  old, and moreover, the piesent Government is not quite the "easy mark'  some of its predecessors iu office  showed themselves to be.  Thus, while the prospects for the  construction of such a line as that  above referred to may be considered  very fair, the Government is forced lo  exercise the; greatest care and apply  the most severe tests, before a just  and satisfactory proposition can be  submitted to the House. It is very  well for the Opposition press to howl  ils impatience���������some of it is edited  and much more controlled by men  who, in their day of power, hurriedly  and without forethought or adequate  information, plunged British Columbia into legislation which thc whole  province has sinco had to suffer for.  Let them hold their peace while business men deliberate business matters  ��������� it is little the Liberal party iu British Columbia knows of either.  This firm adherence of the Government to its declared policy may serve  to explain the impending failure of an  attempt to secure a land grant of  15.COO acres a mile by the Kitirnat  and Haz'eton (otherwise the Pacific  and Omineca) railway. This lhe promoters of that railway���������a paper one���������  will not get. Their motives maybe,  and doubtless are, absolutely fair and  above board: but the principle is not a  business principle, and the country has  had enough of it.

It is true that, whilo civilization  develops man in some ways, it also  degenerates him in others. For instance*, prepared foods weaken tho  stomach; whereas when men had to  eut coarse food, they had only sound  digestive organs, but iimgnilieent  teeth. These facts have led philosophers to-day to prophesy that the  time will come when man can live  j without a stomach by eating pro-  has j pared foods. The principle of disuse  its; ij*. well.exemplified in the foot.

A well-known surgeon has ma:'e  use, with excellent, results, of a sheet  of silver-leaf in dressing wounds.  Tho silver sticks closely to the surface of tlie wounded or diseased tissue, nn'd a small quantity of cotton  soaked in collodion is sufliciet.t to  keop it in place. When the. wound  is fresh, it heals quickly, without  inflammation or suppuration. The  antiseptic properties of silver aro  not popularly known. Some years .  ago Or. Rollin, of Lyons, France, in the  cultivating microbes in a bouillon  which he had placed in a silver cup,  found tliat tho microbes perished,  and at the end of a few hours completely disappeared. The fact was  plelcly disappeared. The fact was  all the more remurkable. as tho  same microbes multiplied when placed in another vessel. Pursuing his  investigations, Br, Rollin analysed  tho houillon which was contained in  the silver vessel, and found therein  a     small     trace    of     silver,     which  $50,000 FORA PIPE LIGHT  AMAZING   CA ������ES     OF EECENT  L$TT.XRY LUCK.

If men. uill go a-wooing to Miss  Fortune they havo no right to grumble at her tioutn und caprices; but it  is a l koo of cruel luck when sho  condescends lo smile on a man and  ho nover knows it  unlil   too  late.  Thi.s has just been the experience  of un Austrian workman called  Mayer, who some time ago became  the owner of a Turkish lottery bond.  Losing his employment shortly after,  nnd being on the verge of starving,  ho decided a month ago to part with  the bond for anything he could get  for it, and started for tho bunk with  this object. On his arrival at tho  bunk the paper which was to procure  him a meal or two was missing.  .This war. bad enough, but tho  crowning blow fell when he learnt  thut the lost bond bore the winning  number in the lottery, and that its  owner was thus entitled to a prize  or $125,000. He is now advertising  in the Austrian papers a reward of  52,nOO for tho restoration of tiio vagrant, which, if recovered, will mako  ��������� liim a Croesus among his fellows.
