It has been fighting the corporations from the day it took ])ower, and its latest action makes its claim for pul)-lic approval more emphatic than ever.

The feeling oi C'hiiuinien on , thi.s side of the I'acilic in regard in the deaths of the Kmi>eror and Dowuger-Kmpress of China .seems to be in accord with the sentiment expressed liy u lyCthbridgo I'elestial, when notified of the I'jnipcroi's death, ".Me no sorry; ho no good." .Sorrow does not .seem to have seized tho hearts and minds of most of them. The IOn)peror and tho Dowager are condemned as being retrogri>s-sive and againtA the advancement of t.'hina as a nation.

Advance notices, giving the names of the choristers, must have found their way to the farm of the elder Burnett, nnd awakened a desire in his heart to .see tho faces nnd hear tho voices of his countrymen again,' as ho appeared in London on the day previous to the arrival of the choir, and was first on tho platform to greet the singers on their arrival. The contrast between the rugged old man-dros.sed in an ancient suit, a flannel .shirt, innocent of a collar, and ii venerable felt hat, and without an overcoat or gloves to shield him from the chilly air, aiul tho wcH-dressefl travellers who alighted from the train, was strong enough to attract tho attention of many.
