Residence -Parsonage, Redpath Street. A Chink with a hammer, a false report of death, and a good-sizod riot, were \ho three events around which the main excitement of the, Christmas tide hinged in Lctlibridfco this year. The celebration was not exactly of the "l'eace on earth, good will to men" order.; in fact, it was very much otherwise. A broken head broken dishes, and broken windows i\re the evidences of the most exciting time spent in the city for many a year. The hero, though it was all unknown to himself, was Harry Smith, the manager of the Cameron Farm, about seven and a half miles south of the city. It was ho who got knocked on the head vHh a hammer irrthe bonds of n Chinaman, it, was ho who was reported dead, and it ivus the nevn of his death that caused the riot. The story is told in live and twenty different ways at least, each of which is correct as the relut-or wus there at the time. SCEXK I. About midnight on Tuesday Harry Smith and som� friends wont to the Columbia Hostnurunt in the Coaldale Hotel block for lunch. Smith ordered the waiter to give all hands a lunch saying he would pay for it. When ordered to hurry up,'the Chinaman it seems got abusive ami order ed Smith out of the place. He seemed to take it as a joke as did those with him, until ,the Ohinaini'.-i gru')!'-rsd him. Immediately another Chink, rushed with a claw-hammer and would have struck him again had not the blow been taken by one of the other men taking the blow on his arm. pandemonium reigned for about a minute. Without waiting for the lunch, the party went, to the police station and reported the matter with the result that in a few min utes, John Leo and Jim Lee, were up before Magistrate Humphries, remanded until Friday morning and released on bail, of 850 each. From the conversation of those, who were in the party and from oth-ors who were in the restaurant at the time, it Roems there was absolutely no provocation for the assault. A SIMILAR OFFENCE This is the second time recently that these Chinamen have been in trouble. On Nov. 27, Frank Mead, a railroad man, went into the res- taurant, had lunch, and bought some tobacco, tendering in payment, with other coins, a Canadian half-dollar with a ring in it. The Chinaman refused to take the coin or to give the change after deducting the price ol the lunch, the tobacco being returned. Mead said that the Chink chased him out of the place with a butcher-knife and he laid information with the police.

The first part of the programme started at eight o'clock sharp and consisted of songs, readings and dialogues by the children, all of whom did their parts well. When the chairman announced that the end of the programme had come, he was interrupted by one of the girls who approached and told him that one of the young men hod something to say! Tho young man, Norman lleid, was called on and approached the platform carrying v. beautiful suit case and in a few choice words presented the same to Row Wm.

ST.-Ultra-provinciul-ism added to diplomatic inexperience worked as a failure to Rodolphe mieux, Canadian minister of labor, who came to Japan to arrange modus Vivendi in regard to Japanese emigration to the Dominion. This fact emerges from mass of courteous comments of the occasion of his' departure yesterday for Canada. It was stated some days ago that ho had effected arrangements on subject with the Japanese government but it was leiVrned on good authority that no entente has been reached and this information is confirmed by Mr. Le-mioux in his farewell statement. Mr'. Lemieux in his statement says, "I am returning to Ottawa with every reason to believe that the solution of the diHiculty will soon bo reached. Japan nas shown me that she is vj'lling to enjoy a similar unwritten agreement as with the United States, restricting emigration as far. ns possible for her to do so and . -signs are nrt lacking that by instruc j tion to lie provincial governments this will soon be dona rigorously." During his entire stay in Tokio, La-inioux conspicuously avoided visiting tho American embassy cyan neglecting to make tho formal call demand-ed by .ordinary etiquette. Americans hero claim tha*. by thus adopting the narrowest provincial met he1 lost, nn opportunity to help solve the problem which is voxiitious to three nations alike, but in which Japan evidently does not intend to discriminate in favor of her ally's colony.
