 VIGOROUS MEASURES NEEDED TO  PROTECT   LIFE   AT   DAWSON.  Associated Press  Victoria, April 22.- J.  II.  Strickland,  brother   of- captain    Strickland   of   the  mounted police, is in Victoria on tho way  from   Dawson   to  the east.    Mr.   Strickland   says  that ''Soapy'*   Smith's   gang,  who  were   run   out of   Skagway   many  months ago, have been infesting Dawson,  but not making any open demonstration,  and there was a suspicion that .they had  gone out to waylay solitary, miners coming in with gold.    Colonel Steele, iu command of the police at   Dawson, therefore  issued a   proclamation   stating   that convoys would be sent to each-of the creeks,  and  would tako tho miners' gold, receipt  for it, and bring it into the city.    Me also warned the miners against attempting  to bring   their dust   without the   protection of convoys.    Mr. Strickland says the  unhealthy state of affairs at Dawson hist  spring  seems  likely   to be repeated   iu a.  much more  aggravated   form   this year,  owing   to    the   larger,    population   and  the   accumulation   of   offensive   matter  from the several years,   occup-mcy ofthe  townsite.    Unless vigorous  measures are  taken immediately upon the  opening  of  .spring to drain   the city  and   to at once  remove   the   garbage, a   malignant  outbreak of fever, is probable.    lie says  the  presence of a  military force.there  is altogether uncalled for, the'mounted police  being  all that  is   needed.   He considers  the royalty collected as excessive and the  reservation   of alternate  claims   for the  government  a   mistake,' in   making the  difficulties  of   prospectors  even   greater  than they naturally are.  Such is Eailroad Politics.  Special to The Tribune.  Winnipeg, April 22.���An Ottawa dispatch to the Winnipeg Tribune, whose  -manager'-is a member of . parliament,  reads: "After all the fuss that has been  made, if is now practically decided that  the Kettle River bill will not be brought  before the house this session. Mr. AVain-  .wright of the Grand Trunk gave me to  understand today that the C. P. R. had  put up a big lobby against the measure,  and the chances of getting the bill passed  were extremely slim. Some say the government is-not., prepared to take a definite stand on the bill, and it is known  tliat certain Liberals who voted for the  charter last year have changed their  vieAVS anil would vote against it this year.

Lon'dox, April 22.���The news from the  Philippine Islands of the retirement of  geneial Liwton from the Santa Cruz district and the capture of a boat's crew of  the United States gunboat VorktoAvn has  made a considerable impression here, anil  the comments of the press all reflect anxiety lest the unfavorable neA\rs haA'e a discouraging effect upon America's expansion movements. Prominence is given to  dispatches from America, apparently indicating a courting of public opinion regarding the Philippines, and the general  tenor of the British press deprecates this  seeming tendency to gloominess, pointing  out that upon ..innumerable occasions  British arms Inwe met with, a'check, only  to eventually conquer all obstacles. "We  Avere discouraged after Isandula," remarks'one paper, "but Ave are beyond the  Zambesi all the same."  Discussing general, LaAvton's retirement, the Speaker says : "The moA^ement  appears, on reflection, so natural that  any other course, we argue, "Avould be  criminal folly."  The Spectator -praises the United  States goA-ernmeut's Avise policy in sending regulars to the Philippines, and telling the party Arolunteers that they may  go as fast as they like. Continuing, the  Spectator says : "Cheeks there (the'Philippines) only mean the loss of time. The  Americans, like us, must lnt/ve their  grumble."  The Economist expresses itself in a.  similar strain, and pooh-poohs the idea  that "the Americans admit they are incompetent to perform a task Avhieh, compared Avitli India, is very small," adding,  "the Americans are not the people t��  yield Avhile they are openly defied. They  are too A'aiu as. \Arell as resolute."  WILL THE PEACE CONFERENCE  BE   A   FAILURE?  Ends Voyage of 14,000 Miles.  Associated Press.

London, April 22.���According  to  advices from excellent authority, not  cA'en  the  most   sanguine  of those  concerned  now expect any substantial progress to be  made at the coming  peace congress  to-,  "wards either disarmament or even a suspension of armaments.    The czar himself  and his entourage 'are reported   to have  lost their illusions on the subject, and  it  is said that the  proceedings ..treating  of  military and naval questions'Avill be coiir  lined to the merest generalities.    N< ne of  the  decisions Avill be binding, and  eA**en  the matter of  international  arbitration,  if anything is agreed  to \Arill  not be absolutely obligatory.    The  British  newspapers this Aveek liaA'e Avarmly taken up  the question of emperor.William's choice  of prof, a-on Stengel as a German delegate  to   the   confei'euce.    It   is  pointed   out  that, judging  from his  Avritings, lie  is a  declared advocate  of Avar,  and  not of  peace; therefore'the papers liere  confess  themselA**es as  being non-plussed" at his  selection, and declare it is hardly possible  the German emperor  can desire the  success  of the conference  if   he maintains  .his nomination.    Extracts from professor  Stengel's pamphlet, "DereAvige Priens" (In  the Everlasting Peace), haA'e  been  produced. Some of his references to America  are decidedly interesting,    After declaring that the Germans, least of all nations,  should support the "fantastic aspirations  of  the friends  of peace,"  he says "the  Americans, intoxicated Avith success,-will  strive to become the   dominant 'power  and dictate to Europe hi any contest be-  tAveeii America and Europe.    Shall  Germany stand peacefully  on  one side and  Ijoav humbly .before America?    Certainly  not.    This is 'already- impossible because  .political dominion  is  also  economic dominion, and Germany must.be politically  aud militarily powerful' if she  does not  wish   to   go   to  economic  destruction."  ..Further on, professor von Stengel declares  he does not khoAv-..'Whether' it  Avas  mere  madness or crime, Avhen perpetual  peace  when the operation Avas oArer they would  oavu the railway and a few score million  dollars to boot, and proceed to charge  railway rates so high that the use of the  road would be limited.  That is. Mackenzie and Mann might do  all that if sir Michael Hicks-Beach and  the Britishers were like us.  MylvMiMed  KASLO   LOCAL   NEWS.  Special to The Tribune.  Kasu>, April 22.-?W. H.

Thousands of enterprising Canadians are simply crushed  by the weight of the debts which hard  times threw upon their shoulders. These  men have to quit the country which has  money to spend upon tlie importation of  European paupers, and parliament is too  busy to do anything. When the party's  interests are at stake the politicians can  spend Ha*o Aveeks debating the address iu.  reply to the speech from the throne or  six months preparing a redistribution  bill.

When this commissioner readies Atlin  he will find the tax before him far froin  an easy one, as claim-jumping by Avhole-  sale has been the rule all through .the  winter, the jumpers relying on the fact  of the original owners, proving-American,  citizens, or else upon some other of the  hundred and one quibbles besetting mining laAV.  The commissioner Avhen he gets into  the new gold district" will also have the  task of determining the position of those  avIio staked claims under the territorial  laAV Avlion the new gold fields first came  into prominence, and it Avas believed that  it was within the boundaries of the  Northwest Territories". * ,     - ���  The "jumping'" through the Avinter has  been general throughout the district, the,  old creeks escaping more Juckily than  anyr others���Pine, Marsh,' Birch ancl  Spruce.

The social status of tmy family can be  giiaged most accurately by the person  who ansAvers tlie'door bell. A slatternly  servant means a slatternly mistress, or,  what is almost as bad, an incapable one.  For the mistress of the house herself to  open the door when so apparelled that  site feels compelled at once to plunge into a sea of apologies, is a- confession of  incapability and bad taste. The A*isitor  who is reeeivecl,;by- a speechless or unkempt child also receives an impression  of the household that is justly unflattering.  FeAver wives would sit lonesomely and  disconsolately at home, AvJiile their husbands roam elseAvhere in setirch of entertainment, -if more ��� wives realized that  home should be something besides a clean  place to eat and sleep iu. Men "hate"  Avomeu's tea .parties and large sIioav functions, but they like little dinner and supper parties. Many families refrain from  entertaining because they cannot do so  on. aii expeiisiA"*e scale. It is, liOAveA*er,  possible to giA*e small dinners and suppers  that are both enjoyable.and inexpensiA'e.  Ask people Avho either do or will like each  other, and if you Avish the Avomen to ha\'e  a good time have just as many men  guests as Avomen guests. If tlie men are  to haAre a good time make sure that some  ,of the Avomen are' pretty and flattering.  Men like to beiiattered. Oh, yes. they do.  ^ One of tlie secrets of Inning food good  is to serve all the hot food hot and till the  c,old food cold. Always have very^hot  plates upon Avhicli to soi'A-e hot food.

It adds charm, hoAvever,  to lnwe AvliateAer is served brought in  deftly, and served daintily.  One of the sui'est ways to be aAvkward  "in company" is to try to act differently  from one's accustomed manner. If one's  every-day manner is not good enough for  a company, then it should be changed,  but the most delightful company manner  is the natural manner Avhen it is natural  to be charming. One of the charms of  an agreeable manner is to seem unaffected; another is to have something to say  worth hearing, and to say it easily and  interestingly: another is to listen appre-  ciatingly wheu others speak.  A   SLIGHT   MISTAKE.  The expert in handwriting had made a  number of very interesting find convincing demonstrations with a piece of chalk  on the'blackboard, tie would flourish a  few lines and then stand btick and describe them, and the jury was profoundly  impressed.  "This," he said, holding a piece of paper  out before him in his left liand, while  Avith his right lie made passes in front of  the blackboard, so as to get a running  start, "is tlie handwriting of a person  avIio is not used to handling a pen���not  necessarily an uneducated person. It  might be one avIio had been so'much in  the habit of dictating all correspondence  that his handwriting failed to settle iuto  any permanent style or had drifted into  unsteadiness through lack of practice."  The testimony did not haA-e any particular bearing on the case, but the jury  looked at one another, aud the spectators  nodded their heads signiiicantly.  "The Aveakness of the upper strokes  especially indicate that this is the liand-  Avriting of one avIio is not accustomed to  clerical labor, Avhile the intelligence  sIioaati in punctuation"���  "May the court -'please,"- explained a.  mail Avho had been on the Avitness stand  a short time before and aat1io had been  fumbling through his pockets.  The   expert    paused   aud   everybody.,  turned to look at the man aa*1io had made  the interruption.  "May it please tlie'court,*' he repeated,  AA'ith much 'embarrassment, "there is a  mistake here. The expert has been testifying as to haudAvriting."  LUMBER  "Of course," said the expert, "that is  what I am here for."  "Well, the paper he has been talking  about is not the one I meant to hand to  the prosecuting attorney. I got the  documents confused somehow, and Avhat  he has is a letter from an old friend of  mine���a man whom 1 met long ago when  I was in the dime museum business, lie  writes to me Aery freiptently to let me  know how he is getting along. He was  the armless phenomenon. Judge, your  honor, that ain't handwriting at all. It's  foot writing."  ���c3-e3'e=>'��3'C3-��3.c.  The  The   fol  dispatch.

Wainwriglit ofthe Grand Trunk said as much  today. He said that the Canadian l'acilie had put up a  big lobby against the nirasure, and the chances of getting tho bill passed were extremely slim. Some say the  government is r ot prepared to take a dclinite stand on  the bill, and certain Liberals who voted for the charter  last year have changed their -Mows and would vote  against it this year. Of conrao there may lie some who  would act the other way, but it is pretty evident that  the bill will not be pressed.
