The Dominion govenimcnt will semi a commission to Asia lor the purpoeo of promoting trade between Canada nnd China and Japan.

A Petroleum King. A few days ago , in a hospital of Vienna , poor and alone , died the son of a man who , a few decades back , was called the "Petroleum King" in his ( tali- asan iiome , ami wns the founder of one of the most oollossal industries of mod ern timas , the roliuin of oil. This man his nanio was Ailolph Schremcr shared the lot of the majority of in ventors and benefactors of mankind. Ho increased the world's wealth by millions , enriched thousands , laid tlio foundation for immense ! fortunes , but remained a poverty stricken man. The petroleum industry in the United States dates from the "liftios , " the first sale of American oil taking place in 1851 , but Abraham Schrolner , by documents in the archives of Vienna , produced illuminating oil as early as 1853. Ho owned apiecu of land in Boryslaw whore , in nn opening in the earth , ho found a black , tar-like sub- .stance which the peasants hat' ' used from time immemorial to heal wounds and greese thuirwiigon wheels. Schre'mer got thu idea that the lluid in thu clay might bo employed in other ways. Ho kneaded n ball from the slime , stuck a wick into it , and it burned brightly with a red llamc until tlio substance was exhausted. This was the lirst petroleum lamp. Later , Schreinor heard something of distillation , and determined to try afow experiments. Ho purchased u lingo kettle and trans formed it into a distilling apparatus as well as possible , filled it with the bluc-k earth , and placed it uuon the firu to ac complish the distillation. But that hap pened more rapidly than ho wished. The petroleum exploited , the kettle was liioken into a thousand pieces , and Sehrciner's body was covered with scars , Hardly recovered from his wound * ho began his experiments again with a proper apparatus , into the .secrots of which an apothecary had introduced him. Here ho wns crowned with better success. Ho gained a product which re sembled a strongly-smelling oil , and pe troleum was found. He filled a bottle and hold it to a druggist in Dropobyuz. That was in the year 1851. ! Schroinor was , therefore , not only the discoverer of petroleum , but the first who introduced it into commerce. The first purchaser ol tlio new fluid in quantities was the apothe cary , Mikolasuh , in Lcmburg. The lat- 'tor , who acquired the lirst ono hundred pounds for fifteen llorina , refined the oil until ho succeeded in making it compar atively clear and colorless. Ho was ac cordingly thu prime oil-refiner. In the same year the Kaiser Ferdinand Knihvaj company purchased three thousand pounds at 100 guldens per ono hundred pounds to use in lighting their signal lamps. Encouraged , Sclireinor enlarged his factory and began thu production ol oil in great quantities. In 1850 ho bored the first oil well In Ualicm. Ho then erected his refinery and distillery. In 1800 the entire works were burned to tlio ground. But ho completed them anew , hoping for bettor luck. Ho had hardly started his motor , when the flames nt'nln robbed him of his treasure , and this time beyond restoration. His youthful cnergj had dcsortcd him now that gray hairs , feeble health and ago hud come. Ik tried to drown his nuiury in drink and died in great poverty , leaving hia son nothing , save a document which .statuil that Abraham Belirenlor was thu first mar to discover petroleum for illtiminntlnt purposes nnd introduce it into trade.

A Wicked Hull Slut Which Preferred Douj to lints. San Francisco Clirontclo ; A very largo number of sports assembled at a cerium pit last night to witness a rat-killing tournament in which several prize tcr- rlors took part. Tins sport is becoming very popular , and many podlgrco terriers arc being Im ported from England and the cast , so that before long some excellent records should bo made In this city , The rats last night wore a yory mixed lot , the smaller fry being hard to mouth and the largo ones showing determined light , so that the work of extermination wont on slowly. The lirst dog to the pit was Bessie , a bull slut , who certainly looked as if she would bo moro at homo chewing thn windpipe of one of her own kind than crushing rodents , a supposition which subsequent nvonts verified. Besslo proved herself very Incapable In the rat- killing line , and it was fullvfonr minutes before the sixteen vermin which she essayed to slaughter were ready for the ash-barrul. Dick , a fox torriur , came next , and got through with live rats in thirty ncconds. He was followed by Darkey , a nonde script , who killed eight rodents In a bungling manner in the slow time of two minutes. AlmedaJaek , a Swedish terrier , then Meshed his maiden teeth < n the carcasses of sixteen squealers , and though rather ponderous for pit maneuvers managed to corpse his siring in an even tlucc min utes. Jack , a fov terrier , then killed nine average rats in ono minute and gave way to Jerry , the never failing brown and white fox terrier , who put an end to the earthly careers of twenty-five assorted brownies in the creditable time of liW. : The last single feat was performed by Jack , a Yorkshire terrier , who ran against four furry lighters from the seawall and had a very rough time with thorn. Sun dry nips on the mnx./.le made the British dog act cautiously and it look him a full two minutes to perform his contract. There were tlion twelve rats Inft and they were turned into ttio pit and a "freo for all" arranged , in which all the avail able terriers took part , Bessie , the bull slut , then came out in her true colors , and as soon as she touched the nit floor in company with the other dogs she seized Yorkshire Jack by the throttle , and caused him to yell for mercy. Jack being dragged away from her. she turned her attention to the Sweedi.sh terrier , and was mopping the floor with him at a lively rate , This slight incident gave rats a temporary respite and they played leap-frog over thu non-combatant dogs , which were watehing Bessie's erratic bu- havior in evident consternation , but the oHending animal once removed , the rats were attended to and killed in less time than it takes to write it.

St. Paul Pioneer Press : It is cabled that thu Oar of Hussiu has set the seal of his approval upon the great project to ex tend the Central Asian railway , which is under construction across the Knights steppes , to thcSyr-Daria , and is projected up that river to the Russian military posts thereon , and to Tashkent ) , Diizad and Samarkand , Already the railway made it comparatively easy for Russian armies to get down to the Afghanistan frontier , but thu extension of the main line to and down iho Amoor Valley to Vladivostock , tlio great Russian naval station on the Pacific Ocean , is a military necessity , and its oflectuation embodies ulso im portant results to Russian commerce in Northern Asia nnd with China. Within , the last twenty years Russia has added a territory in Central Asia considerably larger than Franco nnd Germany com bined. The remarkable faculty tor ab sorbing hostile Asiatic nations and tribes , nnd making them aids in her civilizing processes , is onn of the phenomena of this great scheme of Russmn conquest. The Russians know exactly how to govern them subject Asiatic people ; they sel dom seriously disturbo native adminis trations , and they consequently nro sel dom troubled witli dissatisfaction or ro- volt. The vast Central Aiirn region is kept in order by loss than fiO.OOO Russians. The extension of railway facilities will , of course , insure this security from re volt , because of the case with which troops can bo transported constdorablo dintancus. Tlio Central Asian railway lias boon constructed ever the most difficult portion tion of tlio route across the Asiatic con tinent , probably ; but one-fourth of the distance to Vladivogtock Las hardly boon travorsnd. Tlio proposed road Is to pass through Kirghisk.lrkoiitsk and tlio other important military stations in Siberia , and its cost will bo imiuenso. It will , in efloct , give Russia the strongoit grin on Asi.x and alarm the British government. This railway will bo n menace to North ern China , and greatly facilitate Russian designs on Coroa. \ \ huthur the czar really wants Afghanistan is problemati cal ; but the railway to Merv already places in his hands advantages for furth er conquests southward wliioh England docs not now possess. The British gov ernment , indeed , has recognized the strength and meaning of Russia's move ment by expediting the extension of the railway from the Indus Valley through the Bolan Pass to Candahar and Cabul , in Afghanistan.
