casion In referring to the refusal of the
government to accept the Dtitilt
plans for peace In South Africa to state
that England was not only wllllug but
anxious to welcome any peace that
would recognize fully the rights of his
sovereign. While there could scarcely
bo found objections to the rejection of
the proposals from Holland since the
Dutch effort at peacemaking was re-
pudiated from the start by Boer Wad

IMMENSITY OF LONDON.
Great Population Seems to Grow
Steadily Every Year.
Tho Immensity of 1-oiulon can only
lio understood when we come to deal
with the many sides of the people's
lives. Kvery year about 130000 babies
nro born In London some 5000 of
whom nre not wnnted nnd nro no
welcomed. Thorn nre nlwnya more boys
More than 400 out of every 1.000
never live to be 2 years old over 30.-
000 little coffins being used every yenr
to bury their lemalns. More than 20-
000 people die every year In l-ontlon
workhouses nnd Infirmaries; but in
spite of the fact that about S2.000 Ijan-
donors'go'to their last account there
nro 50.000 more persons alive In Lou-
don eneh' Now Year's day tnan thore
wore on the previous wcaslon.
Thuro nre more than 40000 wed
dings each twolvemonth. 30000 of
which nre celebrated tn the churches
of tho establishment. Strnngo as It
may seem seeing that we havo had
compulsory education now for over 30
years there are every yenr more than
SOO0 persons mnrrled In London who
can neither read nor write.
It Is n common mistake to suppose
that everybody who can comes to Lon-
don and that Its population is Increas
ed almost entirely by this process. As
a matter of fact close upon 40.000
donors leave the metropolis every yoar
for the country or for places abroad.

that prevented the partition of China a
year and two years ago. If the parti

circumstances the only preventive of a
worldwide war will be the presence of
a great American fleet.
"China is to be opened up and opened

the strategic vantage ground. We

equal rights in saying that China shall

It was announced some days ago
that the river police In Par were to
be assisted by Newfoundland dogs
which would prove very useful in the
case of accidents and suicides. Experi-
ments carried out fully bore out this
contention but difficulties have never-
theless arisen says tho Paris Messen-
ger. The dogs do their work perhaps
M. Leplne. the prefect of police was
present at a trial the other day when a
dummy wag thrown Into the Seine and
one of the dogs dived after It and
brought it to shore. Then however
the other dog wished to take a part in
the proceedings and they were both so
anxious to save the dummy that be-
tween them they tore it to pieces. In
consequence further experiments are
to be made and the dogs will be put
through a regular course of training
as It would not at all do If after sav-
ing drownlngcersons from a watery
grave the dogs only brought them to
land to worry their lives out.
