She will begin regular trips this week. She will travel but 18 miles in American waters, ind the remaining 192 miles iu British waters. The Kootenai, therefore, is com pelled to "clear for foreign ports," tho same as a ship clearing foreign with a cargo from tho Columbia river, and must receivo a special permit from tho govern ment at Ottawa, Canada, before making a trip. Tho school rooms of Miss Trenchaud and Miss Habersham were gaily decked with flowers yesterday afternoon and filled with ch'ildrcn whose eyes were sparkling at the thought of the closing exercises, iu which they were to take part. The little folks acquitted them selves very creditably, giving evidence of natural ability anil careful training. Thi3 afternoon "the pupils of Mis3 Connolly.-? and Miss Bndollet's rooms will have their closing exercises, and to-morrow afternoon the series of exercises will close by the final entertainment in Mrs. Martin's and Miss Field's rooms, a pub lic contest on tho 8th pror. at Liberty Hall by lhoo selected at the several ex ercises by tho judges winding up the term. There is an ordinance, and a wise one, on the statute books of the city that makes it a misdemeanor to shoot a gull within the city limits, but below the city where rolls " the Oregon it hears the sound of constant fusilade whenever a gull shows its head. The result is few galls, and ns these birds are splendid scavengers, it is bad for the city. In the interests of the noses of our readers and the cleanliness of the b:ach, now that the days of salmon heads are approach ing, it'is suggested that those who shoot gulls let up on them. A gull is no earthly use when (lead, and living it saves paying out money to men to keep tho beach clean, so on the grounds of utility and economy it would be better to kill stumps orstray hogs, or bark trees, than to wonnd the poor little gnlls that outside the city limits are unprotected.

The president has appointed Joint Hob- son collector of the port, one of tho most important offices in his gift in this part of the national domain, and one which will doubtless be worthily filled by our old and respected fellow townsman. Mr. Hobson has always been readyjwith coun sol and substantial support for his party, and tho recognition of this fact is uni versal. Numerous and hearty wero the congratulations extended to him yester day, and his appointment meets with general approval. Ho has been n resi dent of this city for over fortv years, and is thoroughly acquainted with tho wants of this section and tho requirements of ins new position. Cant. Merrvmr.n's commission expires on the 23th of next month, so that Mr. Hobson will have just about timo to get his 100,000 bondsmen ready, havo the bonds approved and get his commission in time -to step in.

Citizens are gathered in groups discussing the war news, and a petition is in circulation asking the mayor to call a public meeting to devise means for tne protection oi tuo place and the arming of tho inhabitants. A Russian who visited Victoria nbout a month ago under pretense of baying furs, is now known to have been n Rus sian spy, who took drawings of our forti- licat'ons ana liarnors. no went irom here to San Francisco. It is rumored that the disabled steam ship ('malilla. property of tho Oregon Steamship Corapan3 which, since being raised bv Llovd 8 ntrent. has laid in Est quimalt'harbor, will be sold to the iinpe-j rial government, ami ue repaired ami fitted up as a cruistr for the protection of British shipping in tho North Pacific. The steamship G. 1J . Llder reports r-ee-iug a strange steamer in the straits this morning. She was lying well over on the American side, near tho Dungeness light, which is about twenty-four miles from Victoria. Although tho suspicious craft is believed to be an American tug boat, the reiHirt produces much comment, in view of the want of proper protection for this port. IIEU WORK. "Come till America," wrote a friend in foreign parts. "All you have to do is to get n three-cornered box and fill it with bricks and carry it to the top of a honso and the man at the lop does tho work." Tho man who was yesterday tending tho masons on tho top of tho building next to M. D. Kant's, didn't even have to "get a three-cornered box." Ho simply filled a bucket with mortar and, balancing it on his head, went slowly nud stately up tho ladder. It .was a "kind of head work that attracted universal attention. Tho man with the "big head" couldn't do that kind of work. Tlir Situation In Afghanistan. The Czar Gen. Ivoiunroff, why did you attack the Afghans? Gen.

His friend Watson, of tho Chicago board of trade, often said: "If there was a pad lock on John "WVs mouth and I had the only key, that fellow would m?ke both our fortunes.' Simpkins was a reporter on Chicago papers and he had put Watson up to some good points, but although Watson wonld say: "Now, John W., for my .sake don't tell thisioany one." Simpkins wassure to talk about it to everybody he met, and so his pointers never amounted to anything. This fatal habit of talking too much had lost John "SV. situation after situa tion, until at last he bad used up all the places he could get on tho Chicago prss, and had to cast about him for something to do. He met Watson just after the latter had made a big thing on hogs and had re solved to quit tho hazardous calling of making a liviufcou 'change. Watson, Pre got a big thing on hand." "What is it?" "Well, briefly, it's this. You see the corstaut trouble there is In Europe makes news from there more than usually in teresting. All right; I'm going to Lon don. I'll rent a room ou ileet street or the Strand, or wherever else is the correct spot. I'll make an arrangement to send aailv cables to somo ursi-ciess papers. "Yon won't find many that will go to that expense." . "Oh, I've got that down fine. You see my long experience ou tho press has fit miliarizedme vith the phraseology. I havo a complete code that I will leave in the hands of my New York man. For instance, I cable, 'Abbot Korti,' that means the British army met the Mahdi at Korti and defeated him with great slaughter. British loss light. TheMahdi's loss immense.' By telegraphing 'Absent Korti,' I reverse the wholo order of things and defeat tho Britiah. See? I have ar ranged it that I can send a column dis patch for a few dollar:'. There's money in it. Watson.'" 'That ide business is as old as the hills.'' "Yes, 1 know, but 1 have pat more in it than has over been done before nud applied it more closely to war dispatches. But that's not all. I'm going to wrile a weekly London letter. I expect ."00 count rv papers will take it. I'll only cliarge'fittv cents a Jet U-r and that alone will net me s'J"0 a week. Eech ouo can then put at the head of .its columns, This pipcr is on file at our London of fice, l(rx Fleet street,' nud each paper can put that address at the head of its London letter See?" -Bat this will co-t you some cash." "Yes, that's wliat I came to see you about, Watson. I want to borrow $200 orJ00 If j'ou advance the money I'll whack up with you." "Well, John W., 1 can't promise. 111 loll you what I'll do. I'm going over to England for a few months' rest. Now you conio along. If yon can keep quiet about your affair I'll go in with yon. If vou oan't, why, it's the last deal I'll have with you. Hadn't you better mako your arrangements with tho papers before yon start?" "No, sir. That would be just giving the scheme away. We can raeko ar rangements belter from London than here. A country paper will pay more attention to a request from London than one from Chicago.' "I suppose that's so.' At New York, the night before he sailed, John "W. told his scheme to sever al parlies, who complimented him by saving it was a first-ralo thing. As he and Watson sailed on the City of Chica ijo one of these parties had tho schemes ail worked out, and when Simpkins got to London he was at a loss which of the parties to swear at. "Swear at your meuth: John W.," said Watson, disgustedly. "I'm dono with you until Jip locks arc invented." His finaucial resources thus restricled, Simpkins looked nrouud London for something to do, not an easy thing to find this year. Watson was at .supper in a Fleet street restaurant thai evening when John W. came in, his hat on the back of his head. "Struck it?" said Watson. "You bet," cried Simpkins, sitting down at the table. "Waiter, just dupli cate this gentleman's order for me, will you? Yes, sir 'ee, Watson, I'm a mem ber of the British press. Went up to some newspaper offices and when I struck tho Daily rarayraplt ill ne nangeu n l wasn't just tho man they wanted." "Strange," said Watson, sarcastically. "Oh. not at all. McGahan was an American, so is Stanley, so is Burleigh cr was, out there, anyhow. Told 'em I had been nil through our war wasn't true exactly, but it served. Asked me if I could talk andj-ead llussian? Told 'em 1 could, rf -Understood French, of course? Said certainly. Anything of Afghanistan? Had a smattering and could soon pick up a working knowledge of tho language. To make a long story short. I'm off to-night for the Afghan frontier. 'But you don't know either French or KcssianJ "No, but Tve bought instruction books in both lauguaces and I'll study 'em on tho way oat. Couldn't get an Ollendorf in tho Afghan language. Havo to chance that." It happened that the quiet man at their left was a member of the Patn graph statt. He said nothing, but when ho got back to the oQlco John W. Simp kins' commission was ordered counter manded. As luck would have it, Simp kins was off before the order reached his lodiiings. Watson stayed in London a while, went to the continent and came back to London acaiu. Auionc other I letters waiting for him was the follow ing: Keab Heqat, Afghanistan. t Daen'o if I Know tok Dati:, 1&J5. f Mt Deae Watsen: Tm dished a train, banc tho luck.

Now, old man send mo somo cish. I'm broke, 6ro7.-c, B-B-O-K-E. Don't fail me. Now, Fll put you on a1 scheme that I wan't yon to whack np with mo on. There's millions in it.

Now, you -eet back to Chicago and stiok to 'Change. I'll get tho first news of anything and will cable ubuy" or "sell." U I cablo tho three letters "buy" that will mean there has been a skirmish between tho Russians and Afghans. If I cable tho two letters "by" then go in for all you're worth. That will mean a battle. Kow, Watson, don't fail me. ily lipa are padlocked at last. There' not a soul here I ein speak to. Yours, J. W. SrirrKixs. Watson sent the cash and sailed for America. Day after day passed, with long accounts in tho papers of the bound ary difficulty, but no word from Sinip kiiis. It was a slack day on the board of trade. Wheat was flat, hovering at" 80. Big Jones and Tom McGliun were talk ing on the prospects of war. "Kussia will back down, bet any mau a farm. Yes, sir. England would lick her out of her boots in less'n no time. J She'd close up the Baltic nud the liisck : se?s so quick it 'ud make Ut:ssi:'.s head j swim. There'll be no war." j "I dunno," said Tom. "Kussi.i would t get thrashed, of course, but she's just ' bull-headed enougu to go into it. Jjeru: wouldn't it make wheat jump though!" Watson was listening with his hands in his pockets when the shrill voice of the Metfrnph bo cslled "Mr. "Watson, Mr. Watson." " Hprp" said Watson, stenninc from the crowd, taking his dispatch and sien- ing the envelope. A board of trade-man j doesn't take a telegram liko anylx'Klj i else. He gets it from the boy folded in j two lengthwise. He cautiously raises the j upper flap and peers at its contents in a j way that makes it impossible for anyone j else to see what is ou tho paper. Then ! he places it in his book so that he can j lift tho book cover and consult his dis-. patches without letting any onlooker -see ; what lie reaas. There was but one word in the dispatch and that was "By," Watson was an old hand. Not a lino of his face moved as he placed the bit of yellow paper lengthwise in his book, -put tne noon iu an upper pocKei nau sim mt own hands unconcernedly whore they were before. Through tho corner of his eye he watched the clicking instruments of the telegraph at tho office. "Mr. Jones, cried the telegraph boy. Mr. Jone3 took his dispatch, and after scanning it furtitely finally read it aloud. Air. Ulaastone, it saia. nau made a state ment that peace preliminaries were pro gressing favorably. "She's rotten, boys," cried "Watson, loudly, referring to wheat as every one understood of course. ''I'll sell all I've got. There wero no takers. "Com, boys, let's do o business. Don't let us stagnate. Bemembr-r this is Chicago." "Will jou buy?" said Jone. "I'll do anything,' cried Watson ex- j citedly. I iu in. for business, lcs, 1 11 buy. I'll sell alll'vogot or I'll buy all o7irceot. Gome, now. gentlemen.' "This is not pork, Watson," said a : cautious friend who thought Watson's hog deal sneross had turned hi judg ment. "What'll you take Watson.'" "What'll you sell, Jones?"' "I'll sell von all vou'll tuke. Ilow much do von want?" "Gimme r0?" This meant .V).00i bush els. "Yes." Ginime 7.?" . j "Yes." Gimme 100?" ! "Yes." ! "Gimmo 200?'" ' "Yes." "Five huudred?" Hhotileu Walsou. "Yes." cried Jones, wild with excite ment. "Mnke it a million, if jou dare." Jones hesitated breathless. A veil went up from the crowd that crushed around Watson, who stood at the bottom of tho pit looking up at the heated circlo of eager faces. "Come, Jones, put up or shut up. Make it a million or cave in." "A million it is by ," cried Jones. "I'll take yon," said Watson, noting it down. "Now, boys; the lottom's dropped out of it, come iu on me. Pump it in, boys." "A huudred, Watson." "Tnko it, Smith.' "FI1 go yon 200." "Pump her iu, Stevens. All done on wheat. Von think you're selling wheat gentlemen, it'll be gold dust to-morrow. What's the matter with you? No specu lators 'round to-day? Gono homo? Can't Chicago fill a little'order for a fellow?" The excitement wa3 intense. Was Wat son bluffing? was he crazy? had he pri vate information? May wheat was now 80. "Give you a hundred at K," cried Mc Glinn, shonldering his way into view. "A half it is," said Wntson, noting it down. "Ah liar shouted Forman. "The pa tient foreigner wants this wheat. Wat son's been to England. Let tho patient foreigner move np. Fiftv at thres-qnar-ters, Watson." "Take it, Forman." - Here three or four offered wheat, nnd Watson, pencil nnd book in hand, looked from ono to the other saying io each, "lako it, take it, take it.- "Consols have gone down two points," cried Smith with n telegram in his hand. "Another fifty at eighty-one, Watson," yelled Forman." "Take it. Anymore? Now's your last chance, gentlemen, to go down on the grain train. I'm buying a little wheat. Who has any on hand?

"Take it." 'Another hundred at a half." "Boost her up, Jones,' cried the crowd. "Bully for you." "I take it," said Watson, the coolest of the crowd. He booked several sale3 at that fiuare. the last with Simeons, of Simeons & Co., nnd was just about closing another deal when Simeons' partner sprang from Mie telegraph office and sheuted: "Stop, PoterP Instantly the news spiead.
