In tho editorial columns of tho
Japan Daily Horald of July 7
there is an account of an exciting
faux pas that occurred at Shang
hai on June 28. There was a re
view of the troops by a Censor re
turning from Peking, and tho dis
tinguished visitor was attonded by
a group of native and foreign dig
nitaries. For some few days the
foreign-drilled troops much to
the chagrin of tho German officers
hud been exercised every day
for long periods at a stretch, in
connection with tho Diamond
Jubilee festivities. After tho Con
Bor had inspected tbe foils, ex
pressing hinisolf "satisfied with
the men who owo to Mr. Murphy
their instruction," it is related
"Tho distinguished visitor then
asked that a little- target prac
tise should bo cone through. Tho
artillerymen promptly loaded their
guns and fired I No one seemed to
trouble about H. M. 9. Immorta
lite, which was anchored within
the lino of fire; but the screech of
the shell as it crossed close to her
bows was uncomfortably audible
to all on board. The officera looked
at one another, the men's counten
ances were a sitzht to see, for it
is long since a British man-of-war
has had an opportunity to distin
guish herself in these waters. Pre
sently 'boom' went another, and
then it was time to act, for the
Chinccc cccmcd to mean business,
and the commander of the I tumor
talite thought it just as well to get
in first cut, if possible.
"Orders were given to clear for
actios and in a few seconds the
rigging was swarming with blue
jackets. Down came all topham
per, the puna were run out, and
the thousand and one things no
cessary to be done were accom
plished much inside ordinary
time, and tho ship swung broad
side on to the fort. All being
ready, eyes were cast towards the
fort and eventualities were await
od with keen interest. It was an
exciting interval, and all but ah
solutely silence fell on the ship;
no sounds but those from thr- en
gine room breaking the stillness.
They were waiting for the third
shot! What a subject for an
artist I Where was Caton Wood
ville? Where the Wyllies? Who
shnll depict th scene?
"At this moment glasses on the
Iinniortalito revealed untoward
consternation at the torts, tho
rapid uscension of a white ilag
and a boat being rowed as the
galloy UlyHses was never rowed,
from the Woosung fort, and in
tho stern sheets a Chinese ofliuer.
It then became very clear that a
mistako had been mode 'Somo
oua had blundered.'
"It was explained that the
presonco of the Immortalito was
overlooked, and further, that
whou she was seen she was be
lioved to bo further out of tho
range of the shells than Bhe real
ly was. This was considered
satisfactory, and orders wore
givon for the man-of-war to as
sume her wonted appearanco in

It was by special Act of tho Cali

tho agitation for the admission of
tho Paoifiu proviuco into tho
Union, and he served the peoplo
well in both tho provincial and
Cuderal parliaments. A very not

tho talking down of an ob
noxious bill in tho provincial
assembly, when he spoke for
twenty hours on a strotch and foil

by a Bulletin reporter this morn
ing. Mr. Rycroft has just come
from n trip through Olan district
whore bo says everything "js
flourishing. Coffee trees are now
in bloom at Olaa and raaDy hun
dred of acres are covered with tho
pretty white blossoms which will
eventually mature into coffee ber
ries. Mr. Rycroft is of opinion
that much moro cnfTco has beon
raised in Olaa district this year
than is generally supposed. The
prospects for next year' crop arp
most excolleut and it will he a
very lare one.
Asked if many now people wero
going into the coffee businoss, Mr.
Rycroft answered i "There are
plonty of people on tho around
ready and anxious to get to work
but for some reason they can't get
possession of, their lauds. I
know of instances where people
have been kept" waiting over six
months after taking up land bo
fore they could get possession be
cause of the dilatory methods
and useless system of red tape
practised by the Laud Depart
raent.There is no reason for keep
ing people waitinu for months
and ranuths under expense that
many of them are' not prepared to
meet. The Laud office people
need stirring up with a sharp
stick. All the land that has been
deolarod open to' settlement is
taken up. We need more land
opened up and moro roads built
to get to it. There ara plenty of
people ready and willing to take
it up and develop it. The govern
