The arrival of the party in Seattle occasioned no unusual demonstra tion nor caused any undue excite ment There was little or no cur iosity concerning them. Tonight the archdeacon sought the advice of the Canadian immigration officials re garding the entry of Japanese into British Columbia and it may be that the marriage will take place on one of the steamers leaving here this af ternoon when they get outside the three-mile limit Aoki arrived at Ta- coma Wednesday and joined the party in that city.

He seemed sur prised that so much interest attached to their affairs. MORE HAIR-SPLITTING. Tweedle-dee and Tweedle-dum School . Matters at Windy City.

I have known a man of high scientific attainments in certain fields who spent a large amount of his time in watching earthworms which he had made intoxicated. I have known a woman of equal attainment in the world of science who devoted much time to the observation of the breed ing of mice in order to see what .col ors would result from various inter- breedings. "But I should hardly call this man or woman scientist liberally educated. The person who is liberally educated has knowledge, learning and mental attainments as well as a wide out look and generous sympathies." , rapidly better with a consequent de crease of the army of the unemployed and a betterment of the condition of the poor.
