Tlie World has accepted th proposition of the Province as to the circulation tost and the matter is now in the hands of th hospital committee. The proposition is broad and comprehensive. The Issue, plainly stated, is that the Province Bust show that it has double the net paid legitimate circulation of The World er forfeit the sum of $ftK) to the hospital. It vrns a rash offer. No sane person ought to have made it; but having keen njade it must be adhered to, because "the hospital needs the money," The World baa no fear as toithe result. "We shall show that The World's paid legitimate circulation, if not in excess, is not many copies behind tbat of onr Contemporary and that the Province Is ctually losing subscribers while The World Is gaining and sweeping on to a position of influence that the Province cannot hope to attain, It may be added that the Province has inferentially preferred an accusation of perjury against the managing - director of The World by declaring that his affidavits as to circulation is false. The strides The World is making no doubt excites the Ire of cur contemporary; but 'because It Is angry is not a reason for a displny of Ill - manners or bearing false witness against its neighbor. When the hospital natter (hall have been disposed of we shall have something more to say respecting the charge of criminality. In the meantime, we trust that the Province will remember that "the hospital needs the money," and will facilitate tha movements of the committee. A REMARKABLE MAN The death is announced of Mr. Kd - rrd Steinkopff, the founder of the great Apollinaris business, and the sometime proprietor of the St. James (Ja - xette. Mr. Kteinkopff died at his residence, "Lyndhurst," Hayward's Heath, on March 10th, in (Hith year. His career was one of the romances of industry. Born in Mecklenberg, and married in Frankfort, he joined a German ha use in Glasgow in the early 70's and then opened business on his own account. He suffered a evene reverse In the catastrophe of the City of Glasgow tank, but, says the London Standard, being a business man to the finger tips, ' be left bis losses to mourn for themselves and at once looked out for a new line of commercial adventure. ' ' In conjunction with the late Mr. ' Oeorge Smith, of Smith, Elder and Co., be founded the Apolllnaris business in 1874. He took the chief charge of the company, and under his bold and pru - . dent management it grew until, In 1807, . tha business was sold to the late Mr. Frederick Gordon for nearly f2,O00,0(X). Mr. Steinkopff took his own share of the purchase money, about a million sterling In bard cash. He bought the charming state of "Lyndhurst," and spent the rest of his life In retirement there, with occasional brief periods of residence at his home in Berkeley Square, which at one time wag the abode of Premier Pitt. Mr. Steinkopffs associations with journalism were Interesting. He bought tha fit. James' Gazette from Mr. H ticks . Gibbs eight years after its foundatiou. Although nominally in retirement, he took a keen interest in the management of the paper. The most minute points of newspaper production interested him, and he was of an inquiring turn of mind. Up to the last two or three years he save one the impression of being a , strong man in commerce. Mr. Steinkopff sold the St. James'. Gazette In , 1003, and it waa soon afterward amalgamated with the Evening Standard. Mr. Steinkopff belonged to the Carl - ! ton and Conservative clubs. His wife, ; the daughter of a Frankfort merchant, f died fow months ago. His only chiid ,. is tha wife of Col. Stewart Mackenzie, of 8eaforth, brother of Lady St Helier c and tha Marchioness of Tweeddale, : wlf of Bit W. Evans Gordon. Mr. 6teinkopfI was one of the most gener tua and appreciative patrons of art, and : lia hogs is Berkeley Square is full of famous pictures. He was also a con noUteu of artislie furniture, and had a large collection of fine old English silver. In his latter years, and when his health began to fail, he devoted himself to gardening, and his place in Sussex was famous for the extraordinary Tariety of coniferous trees. EDITORIAL NOTES "If the newspapers don't quit abusing patent medicines," mused the Hon. Thomas Rott, "there will he no way left for obscure congressmen to get their faces In print. " - Puck. A pulp mill to cost $1,000,000 is to be erected at Bella Cooln. So says a Victoria report. Many pulp mills have been promised in the past few year, but none has yet been built. Let all express the hope that this last venture will triumph. The Colonist Is out against the suppression of Sunday morning papers and intimates that if the Sunday issue should be suppressed the Monday morning paper must go too, as most of the work on the latter is done on Sunday. The Sunday morning issne is a good thing; but the churches say that secular reading on the Lord's Day unsettles Christians' minds and draws them away from the duties of the day. But why not go further and prohibit by law the reading of novels, magazines, in fact, all but religious works, on the Sabbath? We have known clergymen and many other good, earnest Christian workers who never allow a Sunday newspaper, the work upon which was done on Saturday, to come nearer to them than the end of a pitchfork; but who revel in a Monday newspaper that has been typed and pressed ou Sunday. While the line is being drawn let it be impartially drawn. The unseemly quarrel nt the Protestant Orphans' Home. Victoria, still monopolizes public attention. Certain clergymen and others are charged with having arranged a ticket and voted for and elected officers and committeemen who have no right to sit as such because they have not contributed toward the support of the home by the payment of dues. Moreover, it is charged that only two of the clergymen Bishops Perriu and ('ridge have ever contributed to ward the support of the Institution which they aspire to munage. and that the new president, Dr. Milne, is dis qualified for the reason that he lias not paid $2..r0 into the treasury. Two of the ministerial committeemen, although disqualified, have announced that it thrown off the board they will not in the future help the orphanage, leaving It to be inferred that they will do nil in their power to damage one of the most beneficial institutions in the Dominion because they are not allowed to retain seats on the board to which they are not entitled. From such an exhibition of Christian charity and meekness, may the good Lord deliver us! The matter is In the courts. It Is remarkable how great has be come the interest In the forthcoming varsity race since the discovery that the Cambridge crew dieted themselves largely on eggs, to which is attributed their rapid progress In form. There is no de nying the fact that the Cambridge crew - has advanced by leaps and bounds, and it is also as clear that the Oxonians have not improved anything like them. Earnest efforts made to induce the Oxonians to follow the Cantabs' lead in the matter of diet have so far failed. "We don't want Cambridge to teach us how to suck eggs," said an old dark blue. 'Let those who like eggs eat them," snid another rather testily, and so far as is known, there is not likely to be any alteration in the Oxonian menu. The Cambridge crew has demonstrated tbat within the shell of the egg lie all essentials to the supreme physical fitness. The effect is certainly being felt at the Testaurants, where the demand for poached, boiled and scrambled eggs has gone up surprisingly. The London Globe says: "Public attention is now directed like a searchlight on the egg and it is not improbable that people going into training will make it the main plank of their platform. Perhaps we shall find that it is not the roast beef of old England which has made us what we are, but the boiled eggs of old England." England's greatest living poet, Algernon Swinburne, was barred from the office of poet laureate to the crown owing to his having published a poem in which he extolled Muscovite nihilism and excused the attempts made to assassinate the late Czar. It is an office of no importance, except from the historic point of view, having been filled in former reigns by many famous poets, Edmund Spenser of the "Faerie Queene" having been poet laureate in the days of Queen Elizabeth. Yet in a speech which the Rt. Hon. John Burns delivered at a public meeting in Hyde Tark on April 10, 1887, he went mnch further than Swiubnrue, and extolled "the chemical parcels post," as he face tiously described assassination of public men by explosive bombs. The London Times of the following day reported his speech in these words: "Great sorrow was evinced at the attempt to rid the earth of the Czar. He (Burns) was sorry, too, very sorry, that the nihilists did not succeed. He asked those present if they deprecated force and extreme measures; if some of them did not iika the ides of Joseph Chamberlain following the Czar and Lord Salisbury to heaven by means of a chemical parcel post?" Neither this extraordinary speech nor the fact that the speaker amderwent term of imprisonment in Pentonville jail on a charge of rioting in Trafalgar square, has proved adequate to prevent his being appointed a minister of tho crown, a member of the king's privy council, and his being placed in charge of one of the most important departments namely: the local government board. Every one will have read of the sad story of the Banwells of Toronto. He was married to a young girl and after stealing $10,000 from the Crown bank in which he was employed, lie started with his bride on n honeymoon trip to Europe. He was caught in London, brought buck, tried and sent to the penitentiary for several years. The bride was very properly acquitted. The Toronto News, commenting on the story of temptation and fall, says: "A rash deed in a rash hour, a foolish buying of jewels with money that was not their own, a wedding day with justice lurking in the surrounding shadows, n long ami joyless journey with furtive turnings and doublings, at hist overtaken by police officers and brought home to trial and sentence; that is the story of the F.anwells, and it reads like a pitiful comedy rather than the actual record of a crime ami its punitdmient. It is as though two children with friends about them and life before thein had dreamed an evil dream and awakened from its sinister spell to find that the world was not as had as it had been, that the joy of life had turned sour over night, and that they could never regain the peace and serenity which was lost while they slept. The court was merciful, as courts should be toward children, and society pities while it condemns. But all the mercy that courts can give and society extend counts for little. The shadow of crime can never be lifted; the marks which justice lays upon those who come under its strokes can never be erased. It is not so much that memory is long, or gossip cruel, or society revengeful. It is simply that life is what it is and that nothing can make the blotted page white again." London society is interested in a coming aristocratic weekly, the editor of which is Lady Georgina Dudley. The price is to be half - a - crown weekly and only the nobility are to have access to its columns in which princesses and duchesses are to tell secrets which are not known to the community at large. The general public are not to be solicit ed to suhscribe. In New York city there is an aristocratic hotel, which only entertains the richest and highest people. Transient guests are not desired, and although, to keep within the law, no decently - dressed stranger is denied accommodation, the manager has a plan of his own for keeping strangers at a distance. One day last fall a gentleman who is largely interested in mining at Cariboo and who is greatly liked and respected throughout the province of British Columbia, applied at this swell hostelrie for a room. The clerk looked him over and discovering that he was a gentleman, asked: "Room with a bawth?" "Yes." "Front!" A bellboy dashed forward. "Show this gentleman to room 52." On his way to the room the traveler was charmed with the extreme richness of the fittings. Everything was of the most expensive and beautiful make. The paintings, statuary and decorations were of the most costly and the servants were habited in liveries of the finest texture and most fashionable make. The fittings of room 52 were equally rich and expensive. The bed was a dream. The "bnwtli" - tiib had been wrought from a solid block of marble. liny from a hundred electric lamps put daylight to sleep; the room was scented with the perfumes of Araby the blest, and masterpieces of art lined the walls. The Cariboo visitor fell asleep nul dreamed that he was reclining on a couch of rose - leaves, with "vassals anil slaves at his call" and a donkey engine pumping the rarest wines of Tokay into his system. When he descended to the richly - decorated breakfast - room the Cariboo man found awaiting him the most elaborate meal that he ever sat down to. The plate was of solid silver, and the cuisine well, - it was out of sight. It makes our friend's mouth water whenever he thinks of it. Breakfast over the gentleman proceeded to the office. The clerk surveyed him with a hard eye and with something like the look Why Not Play the II ipalji ' - if Pj$ Hicks 8 ELovick Piano Co.

The clerk called to one of his assistants, "Make out No. ,"2's account, with bawth." In a few moments t lie assistant handed out a bill from behind a barred cage, where he seemed to have taken refuge lest the immensity of the charge should inspire the guest to assault him. And this is; what the Cariboo man read: Hotel New York, Sept. lt, 1005.

Next he fished up his pocket - book from his trousers - pocket and paying the bill, remarked. "You don't expect to entertain many people at these rates, do you?'' "Sir," remarked the man of the hard eye, "We don't solicit custom, but when it comes it has to pay for the privilege of sleeping and eating beneath the same roof with people of position and clawss." "Thunder:" exclaimed the Cariboo man. "I knew the father of the owner of this shebang in California. He used to go 'round with his trousers patched with flour - sacking and was glad to sleep with the fleas in an Indian rancherie and eat smoked falmon for breakfast. Besides, he never wore socks."" "Front."' exclaimed the horrified clerk. "Bring Mr. 's luggage from room 52." "This was the first time," remarked our friend when he narrated his experience, "that I ever staid with quality and clawss. It spoiled me. I've been trying ever since to get back to my former diet of crisp bacon and pork and beans; but I'm duinmed if I can stomach 'em any more. My system craves lobster a la Xewhurg, fried chicken and Saratoga chips." A BIRTHDAY GREETINGS. All hail thee, fairest city.
