0 THE KLONDIKE GOLDFIELM.—Messrs. Allan Brothers & Co., of the Allan Line of steamers, 19, James-street, Liverpool, have issued a small map showing the region of the mines and the distances from Vancouver; the circular on which the map is printed contains useful information and timely advice for those who contemplate going to the new geldflelda. A Boy's DANGEROUS FREAK.—Harry Perkins, aged nine, was ordered to receive six strokes with a birch rod by the Bedford magistrates on Monday for diverting points at the London and North-Western Railway Station. As a result of this freak the brakesman and shunter on a goods train had to jump from the van to save their lives, while two wagons were damaged, and a third thrown off the line. Perkins was pursued, but on getting tem- porarily away put himself in a fighting attitude before his pursuers. ALLEGED BANK DBFBAUDER.—An alleged impudent attempt to defraud Lloyd's Bank of 9650 was investigated on Monday in a London police court. According to the prosecution, the accused went to the Holborn Circus branch of the bank, and, introducing himself as the son of a French Count, asked the manager to cash a cheque for X650. Failing immediate success, he agreed to wait until next day, and assented also to certain inquiries being made. Next morning the manager received a telegram purporting to be a satisfactory reply to his inquiries, but, suspecting that it had come much too quickly, he refrained from taking action upon it. At the proper time he received a message which shewed that the first was a fraud, and he gave the man into custody. The accused then confessed that he had arranged with a Railway man to send the first message, and that he had hurried to the bank on a goods train. He also stated that other banks had taken out warrants against him. The magis- trates sent him for trial at the Old Bailey sessions. CANADA AND IMPERIAL FEDERATION.—Sir Louis Davies, Canadian Minister of Marine, addressed a meeting of the London Chamber of Commerce on Monday on the resources of Canada and her trade with this country. Some time ago, he said, there was a tendency in Canada towards union with the United States, but now every vestige of that feeling had died away. With regard to the Klondike goldfield, the Government had received information which justified the statements in the press as to its richness. He trembled, however, to think of the hundreds and thousands of men who were going, and would go, to Klondike ill- provided with money and supplies. Many, he feared, would die in the mountain passes before they reached their journey's end. He earnestly warned all intending gold-seekers who could not join some powerful and well-equipped organisation to wait until the Government had improved the means of communication. As to Canada's preferential treatment of British goods, he, as a Free-trader, would have been glad if the Dominion had turned its face to the light 20 years ago, instead of keeping it until now fixed on the darkness of Protection. The step which had been taken had not been taken hastily, because the Liberal party proposed it before they came into office. They did this, believing it was a step toward Imperial federation, but at the same time federation must be allowed to grow slowly and steadily* as events demanded.
