He i-s convinced that the chances of accident bj' land and water on the proposed route through Canada are 50 per cent, more than via the United States, a route which ha heen opened for years and by which ' thousands of Australians have safely trav eled, and by which millions or letters have been carried to New Zealand and New South Wales. In concluding his article he says : " It is weil known that the Pacific mail .service na never paid much over expenses, and if the subsidies from New Zealand were taken away and given to the Canadian-Picnic Railway Company, the American steamer.-? would be withdrawn from the service, an ever afe and pleasant route to England would be closed and in time of war the loss would be severely felt. The only compensation would be that we had encour aged the British flag as personified in the powers governing the Canadian Pacific Railway, which for many long 3Tears can never pay xts expenses out of legitimate trafi2e, and will only be kept alive by its land sa'e-iand the Imperial subsidies which iti likely to obtain. California has ever been a bitter friend to us than Canada why siould we swap? " infi the bu.di themselves, hut will send j Tamasese-i party, and probably the black labor from the plantation!, to hunt 3IalIetoa and -his party down. "There can be no doubt that if this course is adopted much blood.-h.ed and loss of life will ensue. WHAT ME. XAPIE2. SAYS. Mr. W. J.

He says If the Canadians wish us to do business with them they must show that they can do it on profitable terms to ourselves. If the offer of the Canadian Pacific Railwav shortsightedness of whose rulers have directly led to this causeless and cruel war. Over and over again has Germany acknowledged Malietoa as lawful Kin. saluted his flag, made treaties with him, and in every way known to international law recognized that the rights and privi leges accorded to established States were legitimately due to his government, and now upon the flimsy pretext of a street brawl between some drunken sailors and Samoans, every principle of international law is ruthlessly violated, and a large armed force is landed to spread terror and death among the humble homes of the unfortunate Islanders. It has long been the desire of the Samoans to be an nexed to the British Empire, and the ex pression of this desire has contributed in no small degree to the lurking hatred of route than the united States, and that it is worth while to subsidise the powerful cor poration which, from Montreal to Bur- rard's Inlet, has a controlling interest in the direction of affairs in the Dominion. The Canadian Pacific Railway Company has the greatest monopoly in the world, a monopoly which we learn from recent chs- quired lor such a step existed.

Spre( Icels boats is w.iiting. with steam up, to take the bags on board and commence one of the pleasantest ocean voyages imag inable, and I speak as one having the au thority of experience. I do not think there are faster or swifter venels out of Austra lia than the Mariposa an I Alameda. Cer tainly you will cot d.-.d nicer or more courteous officers than those American gen tlemen whoc. umand andservon Messrs. SpreckIs' steamers. My trip Ian year in the Maripo-a will f.lways be remembered by me with unalloyed pleasure. The v. ho'e contract time from London to Sydney ia forty days, a.i i the mails hare often been delivered in i ftw hour over thirty-eight days. The contract time from San Fran cisco is twenty-five days, and the voyage has often bc-ea completed in twenty-three days. Thire te no question, however, that the Blinds route is the quickest, but the great advantage of an alternate route across the Pacific is that in time of war, when the European railways would be blocked and Egypt perhaps again turned into a cockpit for other nations to fight in, we should al ways have open communication with the mother country. This advantage is in creased a thousand-fold by the present se rv ice. The American rlag in time of war would be a protection to our mails and to Australian passengers." JUr. Thomas does not think the Canadian-Pacific route oilers an advantage to counterbalance this. He states that the voyage from Liverpool to Quebec is one of the most dangerous across the Atlan tic, und though the railway iourney is shorter from Qutsht'c to Burrard's Inlet titan through th; United States, it is cer tainly not Kd.-r, 1 1t had passed over the Canadian railway, but would not like to plantations for the last four years. This demand terests, but were deterred from doing so by an ignorant outcry when the project was unseasonably disclosed. If the Gov ernment could now temporarily turn aside J irom election strire, taKe a parriotic view just; because, wherever Germans of thir Anv at- fh -ai, , , j i-tv. t.au mv- iiCtv " j 1 H r, U O V istence as a Government, and send the Aadlenre caught any Samoan stealing, they had thm tried in the German Court, before tha German Consul and a Samoan laJgi, th is giving the Samoans every facility for punishing any Samoan ciU;ht stealing German property." Speaking of the landing of the Ger man foreas after Malietoa had refused to accede to their demands, the writer goes on to pay that the troops also went into tie Londm Mission lands, and were proceeding to break the doors of the h uo in, when the British Pro-Consul happened to come alcng, and after a s'rong remonstrance succeeded in get ting them out of the grounds. It ap pears that after their declaration of war their principal object was to pecure the person of the King. The way the Ger man troops were rushing in and out of the houses looking for Malietoa was more like a lot of terriers in a rabbit warren than anything else I have seen. British and American residents have beheld the wonderful spectacle of a powerful civilized nation sending a squadron and landing S00 men and six big guns to make war on one poor igno rant savage. One can hardly believe that such an outrage could be perpe trated in the nineteenth century. So far they have not. caught Malietoa. He is some distance in the bush, ac companied, it is said, by 1,000 armed followers.
