The great question of the day with
the Canadian people is whether there
is to be some kind of prohibition or
not, and the. answer will bo known on
tlio :111th inst., when a plebiscite is to
lie taken. Hardly any public question
lias been discussed with such vigor as
this one of tho liquor traffic in all civilized lands, and tho various pros and
cons ure familiar to all who take any
interest in this pressing: problem. The
question whether liquor shall be allowed to bo dispensed as now, can best
bo answered by going back to the
question whicli is very often raised in
connection with inebriety and ono that
still awaits an explicit answer: "Am I

When Sir William Harcourt was a
young man he once ptiid a visit to Lord
Beaconsfield, or, as he was then, Disraeli, and on Sunday vent with his
host to the village church. "My
friend, the vicar," said Disraeli, in explanation or that functionary's high
church tendencies, "will take what T
call a collection and he calls an offertory; and afterward what I call a plate
he calls au alms-dish, will bo placed on
what I call a table and ho calls an
recognition of the absolute fact of the
brotherhood of man. It has been
tersely stated by a writer of prominence, that although this brotherhood
is acknowledged by mankind generally,
it is uot widely operative; it is not a
CttSejpi "Be yo as brothers" hut rather
"Yo are brothers," and as such, any
wrong done to one will reflect on tho
whole; therefore, ethically speaking it
is wrong to put a stumbliug block in a
brother's path, for bis shatno is yours
from the fact of all being oue common
liu man ity; and from this, therefore,
may bo adduced the assertion that it is
against the law to deal in that which
is, in oxcess, a poiHon not loss to men's
souls as to their bodies.
On the other hand, everything in life
is relative, it is all a queston of degree. The savage who invites the
missionary to dine and clubs him on
tho head, sees no wrong in tho act
Simply because lie has not arrived at
that evolutionary stage where the killing of a brother is an offence against
the law. In like manner the Buddhist
shuns the shedding of bloood of innocent creatures for food, for the reason
that lie is spiritually in advance of the
meat eating western world. So it is
with the dealer in 'liquor; he sees no
wrong in supplying what ho considers
to bo a legitimate demand aud on tho
lines that tho abuso of a thing is no
argument against it, very naturally resents the imputation that is east upon
him by those who live on the " I-nni-
holier-than-thou" plane. It is this
tool ing that has ongendorod so much
bitterness over this great question and
estranged tho liquor party so widely
from the prohibitionists, who although
working for a noble uauso, yot fail to
ii.'i'iiguii'.o as fully as thev should, that
:i fooling of greater toleroneo would be
far more Impressive with their opponents and entirely forgetting thut thero
aro thousands of good Christian men
and women who have innocently drank
liquor all their lives and who are
living exponents of tlie Pauline admon.
ilion lo be temperate in all things.
As to tho result of tlie plebiscite, if
it should carry, which sooms not improbable, tlio most ardent prohibitionist scarcely expects immediate nor absolute legislation on tho subject; there
will be uo sweeping "teatotal" legislation at Ottawa, but rather such new
laws as will bring tho liquor traffic
under better control, so that all respectable and legitimate dealers therein wiil be benefitted and protected from
tho effects of the lower grade of saloons
and kindred establishments which
have so debauched thy lower classes,
while the prohibitionist will have attained acknowledgement as boing an
unmistakable factor in Canadian politics, and arrived at? that point where
he can contemplate with equanimity
the assurance that his secret wish will
bo attained in the no distant future
with the evolutionary upward march
ot humanity.
Liberal sources it came. There are
evidences brought home to me daily of
quiet and'effective organization going
on from ono end of ttho coun wry to the
other, through tho Liberal ranks and
by the Liberal party.
After a few words on minor topics he
said: "I am a National Policy man, not
merely because I am a Conservative
but because I apprehend what the Conservative party has been able to do
under that policy. But for that we
could not have shown the independent
commercial spirit I havo referred to;
but for that wo could not have cemented the union of the Provinces; but
for that we could never have 'got these
steamship communications that exist;
but for that we could not have implanted in the breast of any Canadian tho
determination which is there, not only
to put these, fast steamers on the oceans
but to cement even more strongly still
theso Outlying portions of the Empire
by a cable system. All thoso different
ideas, that bring out the best youth of
the country, are the ideas taken out of
the Liberal Conservative school and
are the ideas preached by the party for
IS years. Wo can well afford I'or a
few yoars, to allow these men to try
their prentice hands. Tbey oppose all
tho lines upon which the country's
progress is based and now thoy have
not the courage to dare to do any of
the things which they said they would
do before they were elected. When,
therefore, the Liberal Conservative
patty closes up its ranks, as it is doing
in British Columbia today, and from
hero to the Atlantic, has got ready for
the fight, that day will, I believe, see
I as great a victory for the Liberal-Con-
[ st. ":itivi party as was achieved when

when she fell fainting.
Tlie captain did not want to put from
the quay, but did so at the request of
the empress and her suite, there being no
apprehension tlint she was seriously hurt.

Charles F. Monderson of Nebraska was
senator from tlint state for two terms,
and also served with distinction in the
war as a division commander. He is at

Hon. Robert T. Lincoln is. of course,

equally true of Daniel Lamont. secretary
of war under the second Cleveland administration.
Dr. W. W. Keene is a citizen of Philadelphia, and enjoys the reputation of being one of the most scientific and ablest

The supposition is that the place was
captured und the Spanish garrison wiped
out. This would virtually mean the
capture of the entire group of islands.

There are 15 teams and 25 men employed on the Northern Pacific's Nine
Mile branch, near Wallace, Idaho, and
the gap between the old grade und town
will be completed this week. That is
practically all the work tliere is to do
lor four miles, the old grade requiring
but little repairing to put it in shape
to lay ties and rails. No announcement
has been made as to how far the rails
will be laid this year, although there
are various rumors alloat regarding it.
Among the meu employed on the work
the idea is prevalent that there is an
understanding with W. A. Clark that he
will work the Sunset und that the road
will be built to it as soon as possible.
It is out of the question for it to go
sso far as that this year, as it will require
several miles of heavy grading. The
Sunset claim is on the very summit of
Sunset peak, and has the greatest surface showing of any claim in the Coeur
d'Alenes without question. Mr. Clark
has owned it for years, declining to either sell or lease the property, although
there are plenty of men who would jump
at a chance to get to work it on any
reasonable terms. Another report is
that the track for the present will run
only to the Black Cloud mill, and another that it will be put through as far
.as the Granite mine, a mile and a half
beyond the end of the old grade. I.O-

(lending for some time is well known.
Thut it is Hearing the point of culmination is asserted by thoso who are in a

It. is said that the price is to be at the
rate of (600.000, or $1 per share, for the
property. Some who are in close touch
with the parties interested insist tlmt
the price is even higher thun this and
give as a reason therefor thut the deal
has been hanging fire for some time
���limply because the owners of the control of the property would nol sell at $1

that tlie price is $1 per share.

place the altitude of the hump itself at
8810 feet above sea level. This is the elevation platted ou the map of the Hitter

At 11:15 o'clock the American commissioners, accompanied by the Spanish officers representing Captain Generul Blanco, landed ut La Mucliiim Wharf, and arrived at the palace at t):40, whore tho
cuptuin general's body guard presented
arms. Captain General Blanco, in full
uniform, received tlie commissioners in
the reception room, where, after the for-
nuil presentation had taken place and tho
ollicial courtesies had been extended,
they sat down and conferred for about 20
minutes.    The captain general  addressed
the commissioners in Knglish.
The United States commissioners left
tho palace shortly after 10 o'clock, accompanied by Dr. Congosto and General
Solano. 'Ihey were driven to the Mucliiim. wharf, opposite the wreck of the
Maine, where they took lunch before returning to the resolute for dinner.
Colonel Cloud and Captain Hart, accompanied by a Spanish officer, then paid
a visit to Admiral Munterola and to trie
captain of the port, after which they
returned on board the Resolute.
The general public crowded the wharf
when the arrival of the Resolute became
known, but there was no demonstration.
The first session of the commission will
take place this morning at 8 o'clock nt
the colonial government ollice.
On Friday the entire archives were
carted from the military governor's palace to the wharf, where they were delivered to lighters for shipment to tho

Wireless   Telegraphy.
London. Sept. 12.���The experiments in
wireless telegraphy, wliich are being conducted at Osborne, continue to attract
the widest attention In scientific circles
nnd many of the foremost scientists of
Kurope have come to F.ngland to personally watch the tests. Until her departure Inst week for Balmoral the queen
took the liveliest interest in the experiments, und it is stated that many messages passed between Osborne house nnd
the  royal  yacht  huving on  board  the
prince of Wales.
Mr. Marconi, the young inventor of the
system, hud charge of the tests.   During
a period of 10 days a bulletin was sent
each morning by wireless telegraphy giving the queen Information concerning the
condition of the prince. Messages also
passed freely bei ween the duke and duchess of Yolk. The yacht was anchored
at a distance of tWO miles from Osborne
bouse, the two positions not lieing in
sight of one another, as they were Intercepted by a hill.
Messages   were  received   on   board  thc
yacht   when  under  sleam,  one  from  the

American  Sailors  Will  Make  Money
Out of the Spanish War.
At least $1,000,000 prize money will bo
distributed among American sailors aa a
result of the war with Spain. More than
one-half of this sum will be paid in accordance with that section of law providing for the payment of a bounty for persons on board vessels of war sunk in action. The rest, will be turned into the
treasury for distribution by the courts
which shall pass upon vessels of the enemy captured by American men-of-war.
From the ollicial report of Admiral
Montojo, commanding the S'tanish fleet
sunk at Manila, there were 1875 persons
on board the ships under his command.
The Spanish fleet was of inferior force to
tlie American squadron, and Rear Admiral Dewey's men will therefore get
only $100 for each person.
lt is estimated that the aggregate
amount due the Asiatic* fleet as the result
of the destruction of the Spanish force
amounts to $187,500, wliich congress will
bo asked to appropriate during the coming session. One-twentieth of this sum
belongs to Rear Adimral Dewey, as commander-in-chief, and he will therefore bo
$0376 richer than he was before the war.

New   York,   Sept.   12.���A   dispatch   to

Under peremptory orders from Oeneral
.Miles preparations are being made to
break up this cump ut once by sending
home all the soldiers here, This is contrary to wlmt nas been the understand

.Shafter said last week that IIOOO or 7000
men would be kept here, at least until
October, and this was supposed to bo the
order of Secretary Alger.
An officer said today when (ieneral
Miles' order! came a telegram was sent
him saying that such orders wore contrary lo Secretary Alger*-, orders, and
Miles replied:
"Never  mind   what   Alger  iayS|   I urn

West Indies, of the Leeward group, indicate there is an acute industrial crisis
there, owing to the shutting down of the

wheat under the standard grade. The

galod its,readers with two columns of
literary dribbli . fo blj aimed to dislodge Th (Towi rr the impregnable
p6Bltion we had previously taken on
tho Sunday observance question. We
took no part in the earlier discussion
tbat called forth certain pulpit refer-
ej)i :.-, irom the Kev. Dr. Menzies; we
merely rose to re nark, with do unci I'ti.in sound, on the sneering and Hip-
pant manner the agnostic organ was
handling themes which many revere,
and no inconsiderable number regard
as holy; and In BUpport of the broad
statement thai it is unwise to abandon
thu "ancient landmarks," wesupported
the old fashioned Sabbath as being
more conducive   to morality ami order.
Tho question therefore at issue is:
Shall we abandon this old fashioned
Sabbath (however erroneous as to
ni'i.iii it may bei. give up church
going, Sabbath schools and the like,
delegate to the limbo the wisdom of
tbe ages as embodied in the Sacred
Writings, deny to our children any
training along religious lines aud
trust to tbe inspirational effects of
Mother Nature when we take our walks
abroad ? This is what tho Kootenaian

Such a husk will not satisfy the people on this side, brought up as thoy
have been amid religious surroundings. However beautiful and lofty
contemplation surrounded by the beauties of earth may in*, man will ever
seek knowledge and understanding

and not to churches or temples as the

ln all ages mankind has gathered together in temples to worship the unknown. Whether it be cur Aryan ancestors on the plains of Central Asia,
the Babylonians on the Tigris, tha
Assyrians on tho Euphrates; the
Egyptians on the Nile, the Hindus on
tho sacred Ganges or the Mayas on tlio
Peninsula of Yucatan,Mexico, ir. every
instance exploratory research has
brought to light the remains of magnificent temples built for the purpose
of divine worship and which find their
reflection today in the cathedrals and
churches of the older lands.
Tbo impertinence therefore does ni I
lay witinthe Kev. Dr. Menzies and his
many followers, but  with  the  alien
sheet that has, in addition to grossly
misinterpreting the reverend gentleman, attempted to discuss questions of
which it, is ignorant and taken upon itself with unpardonable effrontery, the
task of attempting lo disturb certain
Sabbath conditions that obtain in Canada and the Mother Land, and which
are acceptable to the large majority of
the populace, they having been found
by experience, better calculated to
train the younger minds and bring
them in touch with those religious
hopes and aspirations upon which this
Great Empire has been built.

it thinks the insured at New Westminster would havo been if they had

Keference to the .Mayan civilization
elsewhere reminds me ofthe magnificent exploratory efforts of the great
French traveller. Dr. Plongeon, and
his wife in Yucatan. Evidences of a
striking character have boon unearthed
there amid a tropical jungle, of a vast
civilization dating buck 10,000 years.
Tho Orientals say that this civilization
was a remnant of the once mighty At-
lantean nation, which existed years
ago ou a continent that is now submerged under the Atlantic ocean
(hence the word Atlantic). This is the
lost Atlantis referred to by Plato and
others of less import siuce. What will
interest Free Masons is the discovery
of masonic feigns and symbols that wore
used by the Mayans, thereby carrying
back Free Masonry to what are known
us aiitedoluvian times, as the subtnerg-
anoe of Atlantic gave rise to the legend
of the flood in Genesis, As a matter of
fact Free Masonry existed wherever
man has recognized and realized the
brotherhood of man and that is beyond
historic times,

If what Dr. Jxibaa reports to the
press about the cruelty inflicted on the
exiles in Siberia, George Keenan,s day
has (Mine and in spite of tho contrary
statements by experienced travellers,
notably Dr. Lauskoll, his description
of the horrors of tho convict system
will have to be accepted as true. It is
hardly conceivable that there are
men who can, iu these days, passively
inflict tortures on their brother men
that equal thoso practiced in thc (lays
of tho Inquisition; such treatment
bears out the old statement .that if you
scratch a Russian you will find a Tartar underneath.
As to the many conflicting state-
mollis brought home by travellers in
('rionlal lands of what they see it may
Im broadly stated that they tea comparatively little of the inner life of the
people.  Take India, as an  Instance;
when the greal French oooyit traveller,
Jacloiltt, came back from that country
:ie suid he did not care  to   state what
wonders he had   seen   for  the   simple
reason that people would  not   believe
him; wonders,compared with which all
this   fakir business  that oue  can see
any day on  the streets   of   the   large
cities of that country, ia mere peanut

There is a phase of the liquor question that has been overlooked in the
discussion now going ou,as between the
man who comes to town onee in awhile
and goes on what, is known as a "tear,"
then goes away and does not touch
liquor for two or three months, and the
man who, though never drunk, still
manages to got _*way with his minimum six glasses a day, the former is in
a far better position, as life insurance
companies will testify, in fact they are
now very strict on the question of 'tippling," and an applicant has to answer positively as to how much liciiiii'
he takes per diem. Tho constant dripping wears away the stone and constant strong liquor wears away the
finer tissues of the stomach and induces dyspepsia and its attendant evils.

The following changes in the llriii-.li
Columbia mining laws should becaro-
fully studied by those interested in
mining iu this Province:
First of those refers to   the  location
of fractious.    In all fractions surveyed
from now on, whether staked correctly
or not, tho  surveyor may   adopt the
boundary   linos   of   the    surrounding
claims, provided no side exceeds  16001
feet in length.   In other words, the lo-1
Cator is ,-ntitled to tlio  vacant ground I
that   lu    claims,   even if   ho does r.ot
stake it In such a manner as to Include
it all. which he seldom does.
l!y a recent decision of the courts is
prospector lo.t a claim because of inability to securo the post nocossary to
mark the location. The amendment
provides that in canes where claims are
staked above the timber line, or the
prospector can not securo tho necessary posts, be may erect monuments of
earth or stoue.
In staking an extension the posts are
often planted so as tu form a wudge*
shape fraction between two ends of the
two claims. These fractions have often incurred greal expense, not only In
recording and surveying, but in cases
when; they carry the lead, and thus become of such value as to promote litigation. The amended net authorizes
the surveyor to include such fraction,
provided it does not cover more than
61,05 acres, the area of a full claim,
and provided further that two location
posts are together.
By failure to record assessment work
within the required period of one y,".r,
either through oversight or the mle��
understanding of partnership interests,
valuable claims have been lost. Now,
if a prospector fails to record the work
within a year, he has ;��) days' additional time in which to make the record by
payment of an extra $10, provided that
the work is done, within the year.
Another ohange regarding the assessment work is in that particular
which called for work to the amount of
$100 each year. Now, a miner can do
and record as many assessments as he.
pleases in a year by paying the recording feo tor each assessment done to the
extent of $100.
Incase anybody should adverse an
application for a certificate of Improvement and orown grant, the contestant
must have his claim surveyed immediately and file a plan made and signed
by an authorized provincial lam! surveyor with the writ.
To obtain a crown grant in 188*3 it.
was necessary to do assessment work to
the amount of $.*idl) and to have the
claim surveyed, whicli meant another
$100. In isi'7 tlie act 'was amended so
as to provide that up to May l, 1808,the
cost of such survey should count tis
work done on tho claim, not   to exceed
$itn). [n plain English, it oounted us
an assessment and as work toward the
orown grant. A survey generally costs
$100. The last legislature extends tho
lime to May I, 1800.
Hereafter, in adverse proceeding; In
oonneotlon with the title to mineral
olalms, before any court, each party to
tin-proceedings snail givo affirmative
evidence ol title. Heretofore the bin-den of prim! was on the contestant.
The fee for recording assessim ut
work has been reduced from $'2."i, to
12.50. Heretofore tho toe for recording
assessments has been BS conls higher
than other fees.
Anybody who pulls down alegal post
elected to mark a boundary or location
of a mineral claim, or any writing by
law required to he thereon, is liable to
imprisonment for six months or.a lino
of $.!o0, or both. This is supposed to
be directed particularly toward pro-
venting tho use of old posts by people
who restake a claim and sometimos destroy evidences of a prior location.

Tliere Is a perfect reason for the attachment of the Immigrant to the United states, ii |�� because It is the country of his choice. No portion of this
country has ever been a penal colony,
a Botany Hay or a Siberia. The Immigrant to the United states from the beginning has been a volunteer-one who
considered the matter and concluded
that his condition would be bettered in
some way In the great, new, strong
country beyond the Atlantic, where
there was more hind, more room, more
work, more money, mon* opportunity,
more liberty for hliu and his children

Shrewd operators have become convinced that with the end of Ihe war
will come a break in the mule market.
This will be due lo two causes. Consumption of mule meal by the Spanish
soldiery will cease, and the Government will enter the market as a heavy
seller, with a large, variegated assortment of Inowns, blacks. I'laylmnks,
offs. nighs and every oilier known species of Hie patient animal, (lood clay-
banks Unit have been paying the Government 8 per cent ou tlie Investment
since the war began, will cease declaring dividends and prepare for liquidation. Bell mules that have guided pink
irains half over the province of Santiago de Cuba, will find their occupations gone and no fodder fur the hungry. Choice spring mules, just puss-
ing the pin-feuther stage, good, little,
bandy legged broilers, will fall off,
along with the older Spanish boarding
house favorite that used to work up
Into salmis and ragouts and pale a la
Torn! in Santiago before the advent of
Shafter's army. Buyers win turn sellers ami mules will ntnnil ou the bargain counters elghl deep, adding their
soulful songs Into one great {wean like
the twittering harmony of a bird store,
and making the mule market blossom
with the Sowers of song.

with Spain, we hnve developed worthy

found their oportunlty. But this was
solely because the American people aa

desperate bravery which occurred during our war with Tripoli. It Is hardly
credible that this country once paid
large sums to the piratical Harbary
states for leave to navigate the sens
without assault. During the administrations of Washington nud Adams th��
ships of our navy were several times
employed In carrying silver coin by the
barrel to the Dey of Algiers and the

down from the mast of the George

for a long time without protest, similar
Indignities from the Bashaw, At last
the Insolence could be tolerated no
longer, and war was declared. The next
year the frigate Philadelphia struck a
rock In the harbor of Tripoli, and waa
seized by the enemy, the ollicers were
thrown Into prison and the crew of
three hundred men reduced to slavery.
The Turks raised the vessel, and began
to refit her for use. Lieutenant Decatur, lu a little vessel named the Intrepid, with a half-dozen daring young
fellows crept Into the harbor at nightfall and made fast to the Philadelphia
under pretense of wanting anehornge.
As they grappled the huge ship the j
Turks leaped to their arms, but tho
Americans were already ou board.

������LUCKY'    BALDWIN.
Was Once Worth Million*, bat In Now
Land   Poor.
"Lucky" Baldwin Is no longer lucky.
He can't raise ready cash. He has
plenty of real estate���whole square
miles of as fine land as exists anywhere, but nobody wants to buy, and
ao he remains poor. At one time, what
with his mines, his ranches and other
Interests, he was worth $30,000,000.
That was long ago, but even twelve or
thirteen years ago he was very rich and
was lord of the vast and beautiful es-
The daring feat of Lieutenant Hobson has recalled to the minds of Americana two similar individual deeds of
The Interesting discovery has been
made by an up-to-date physician that
tlie bicycle Is a sovereign remedy for
Insanity, a specific whereby any non
compos may be clothed In his right
mind and gel Into the push with safety.
The discoverer evidently bases his theory on the well-known axiom, "the hair
of the dog Is good for the bite," and he
hopes, eventually, to do away with
scorching and relegate the eenturlan to
the great army of has-beens. Through
the agency uf the bicycle, lt Is confidently expected, lunatic asylums will
fall into InnOCUOUS desuetude and bod-
lain soon become a forgotten name.
How snugly the Idea seems to fit ln
with Hahnemann's great discovery
that "like things are cured by like
things." Wheels for wheels, rotntlon
for cranks, or cranks for cephalic revolution! When a man's thought factory
slips a eog and begins to buzz with abnormal rapidity the doctor mounts hlm
on a bike nnd he straightway pedals
Into mental tranquillity, taking no heed
for the morrow as he humps himself
ns never did dromedary of Araby, the
blest, the wheels beneath, meanwhile,
neutralising the rotary motion ln his
Upper story until the cranial machinery
movea Without a wabble and as smoothly as If on hull bearings. This ls a
great triumph for the bicycle, Hitherto
tills pleasing and popular Instrument of
progression has been animadverted upon In severe terms by the medical profession as being ihe prime cause of a
vast number of bodily ills, ranging from
ambllyopy to symoais, all tending ultimately to the permanent deformity of
the rnee through hereditary transmission. Only a short time ago an eminent
French doctor declared thai a long ride
on the wheel resulted In "paraesthesla
lu the digits and Impaired sensibility
and paresis lu Ihe Inlerossel. lumbii
culcs nnil the abductor polllcis."    This
was alarming enough, but fortunately
proved lo be a case of mistaken iltug-
iiosIk, for Ihe patient, a very liiarining
young woman, was only suffering fnun
a mild ease of pneumatic prostration,
caused by her back lire coming down.
All of these pesslinlsile tirades tgft.net
the bicycle have been promptly punctured by practical use of ihe machine,
which continues to roll Into public favor more and more every day. Instead
of producing disease It gives health and
happiness; It strengthens the brain as
well as the calves of the legs, and
makes the biceps of the fair damsel
look as big as a cocoanut. But its
greatest glory ls the announcement
that tinder Its sway the straight jacket
must give place to the "kulekera" and
divided skirt, the padded cell to the
saddle, and the forbidding and gloomy
walls of the asylum to green lanes,
shady, serpentine roads and the Joy of
tate In the San (Jahrlel Valley, near
Los Angeles. Along ln 1894 lt became
known that Mr. Baldwin was ln need
of money, and presently he began to
sell pieces here and there of his grand
estates In California. "Lucky" was not
living up to his name. To-day, the
owner of land enough for a small principality, he finds trouble ln laying hia
hands on a $100 bill. Mr. Baldwin has
been living ln San Francisco pretty regularly for the last three years. He ls
now 70 years old and Is showing hia
age. He ls by no means the picturesque
man he was when his Volatile was
king of the turf. But "Lucky" ls a
pretty good man yet, even If he la losing his millions. Among all the shrewd,
wise men who beenme bonanza kings
nnd millionaires ln the brisk days of
California there was none shrewder
or wiser than Baldwin. He has played
many parts lu his time and played all
well. He has been a canal boatman,
grocery man, hotelkeeper, brlckraaker,
liveryman, theatrical manager, turfman, mining operator, farmer, and always a speculator. He has been able
to manage and direct rive or six big
businesses, from a magnificent stable
of race horses to a gold mine, hotel,
ranch, winery, vineyards and a brickyard. He may not leave as many millions behind him as he might once have
left, but there Is hardly any danger of
his going to the poorhouse.

Origin of l'i)��ia*{i' Slumps..
The Incident which resulted ln the
Invention of the postage stamp was a
curious one.
A traveler Journeying through the
north of England chanced to reach the
door of au inn Just as a postman Stopped to deliver a letter. The young girl
for whom ll was Intended came out to
receive It. She turned it over and over
in her hands and asked the price of the
postage. The price demanded was a
shilling, and as the girl was poor she
returned It lo the postman, saying that
It was from her brother, but that she
had not that amount of money. The
traveler, lu aplte of her protest, paid
the money to the postman and handed
the letter to the girl. When the postman departed the young girl admitted
that she and her brother had arranged
by certain marks upon the letter that
the otlier should know that the writer
waa In good health and prospering.
"We are so poor," she added, "that,
we were forced to invent this way of
letting each other know of our welfare."
The traveler continued on his way,
asking himself if a system giving rise
to such frauds was not a vicious one.
The Bun had not set before Roland
Hill (such was the traveler's name) had
planned to organize the postal service
on a new basis.
His views found favor with the English government and on January 10,
1840, the first postage stamp was Issued and a postal system started by
which not more than a penny was paid
for letters which circulated over the
whole extent of the British Isles.
Ten years later, In 1850, the number
of letters Increased from 1,500,000 to
7,239,902���Philadelphia Record.

The quaiut little Chinese spaniel Is
the latest fad of the dog fancier. There
was once a statute making It a crime
punishable by death for a common person to be found with one of these dogs
In his possession, and even now their
price makes them a luxury for the rich.
They have been bred ln their present
purity of blood for more than two thousand years, and there Is a legend that
a tiny black and white spaniel was the
trusted companion of the wise Confucius nnd sat at table with him.
The great round wall eyes, the short
upturned nose, tlie bushy full and the
silky hair are the distinguishing points
of the Chinese spaniel. The more walleyed a dog ls the higher price he can
command. The colors are white, black
and white, brown, and brown and
white. The doga are extremely small,
and are hardy, affectionate and very
Intelligent. The Blenheim spaniel of
to-day Is a far different animal from
the dog of the time of Marlborough,
for about a hundred years ago they
were crossed with the Chinese spaniel.
This cross added to their beauty, but
marred their health, for lt Is now almost Impossible to get a Blenheim that

of their rarity aud the oddity of tlnir
l.ntr.t Device Toward Solving the
Problem of Perpetnal Motion.
For twenty-three years Samuel P.
Kail, of Bast Lebanon. Me., has lived
the life of a hermit aud for more than
forty years has beeu most untiring lu
his efforts to Bolve the problem of perpetual motion.
His latest device of perpetual motion
has a large pulley set In a standard.
To the outer surface of the pulley are
attached a number of tubes containing
quicksilver, which acts as a floating
weight In each tulie. As the pulley
revolves a system of mechanism holds
the tubes extended on one side, while
they rise on the other side, the same
mechanism allowing them to unlock
automatically and hang pendant, Mr.
Kail's Idea lielng that tbe tubes present
less resistance wheu hanging pendant
than when extended.
As the tubes pass the apex of the pulley the quicksilver flows quickly down
the Inclining tubes, constantly adding
to their weight as they go. Mr. Kail
believes thnt if he can succeed In governing the weight accurately he will be
able to overcome the dead-center, The
other Idea that he describes Is what he
terms a double cross, the arms Imparting motion by  melius of weights, the
the Insertion of an electric wire. The
missionary using It among the Indiana
bad concealed in his clothing a small
battery, which he connected with the
prayer book. An Indian allowed to
hold the book for a second felt a slight
shock, and promptly attributed It to the
power of the white man's religion.
How It Came to Be   Victoria.
The primate had been told by the
prince that he liked good historical English names that everyone could understand. What better name, he thought,
than Queen Elizabeth. He mildly suggested "Elizabeth." "Ou no account."
said the prince regent. "Charlotte, nfter your royal mother and the child's
royal aunt." "Certainly not." The
Duohees of Kent relieved her feelings
by a flood of I ears. The Princess Mary
kissed her and the baby cried. This
spurred the mild archbishop. "What
name is It your royal highness' pleasure to commandV" "What's her mother's name?" "Victoria," answered the
Duke of Kent. But his intervention
wtas met by an irate look from the regent. The Duke of York, seeing thut
the christening must be ha.stened forward If it was to he got through with
at all, took on himself to say. "Alexandrian Victoria." And so the queen

The Original "Rubberneck."
"Tlie terms 'rubberneck' or 'gooseneck,' which have crept Into current
slang," said D. O. Burns, of New York,
"got their origin about the poker table.
There ls nearly always sure to be some
fellow who, In the progress of a game,
tries to overlook the cards held by the
players sitting next to him. In order
to get a peep at the hand of hie neighbor the Inquisitive sport will elongate
his neck until he stretches lt to lta utmost capacity. Often If he succeeds ln
getting a flash of the cards it will aid
him materially In his play. This 'goose-
necking' ts considered an unfair trick,
and ln caws where lt Is adhered to constantly, expulsion from the game ls the
penalty. As a matter of fact, only amateurs hold their cards In such a way as
to be seen. Your veteran devotee of
draw holds the quintet dealt very close
to him, and 'skins' them out ln a way
to defy the rubberneck."���Washington

Of ImttlPB fought and won,
How the army of invuulou
Made the hated  Spanish run;
Did you ever pause a moment,
While the dons receive their dues.
And aort of lake a tumble
To the boya who wrote the news7
Perhaps you think It easy
Amid the cniinonB' roar
To ruttlc off good copy
While your paper rales for mores
Let me tell you, gentle reader,
War reporting la no Joke,
For your soul may quickly mingle
Wltb Ihe ruklng buttlc'a smoke.
While pen la flying swiftly
Tide of conflict  to  record,
Some swirling Spanish ballet
Stay pass you o'er death's ford.
Oh, it's well enough to Inugb
At "written on the spot,"
But while your mirth holds carnival
That every man Ib shot.
In the rear you'll never find him
Where cliiali of arms kouihIs faint.
He'll not let lips of other*
ills own word pictures paint.
He's In the thick of battle.
He's where the strife runs red,
He'H grinding out tils atory
Iu that flying sleet of lead.
He lovea to write of others
In whose vulor he delights;
He ofttlines makes them fiimons
'Twin durkneBB and daylight.
He longs to spread In detail
On the flaming scroll of fame
The way that they won glory,
But he never tells his name.
He dlea to serve tits paper,
His life's the price of news.
There's no one lo sing his praises
And few can till his shoes.
Spain Had   Worked   Out  a System of
Absolute Robbery.
The revolt of the natives of the Philippines la the result of Spain's worse
i ban prehistoric methods of colonial
government. Misrule on a gigantic and
Inconceivable scale flourished ln this
Island empire -"The Pearl of the
The actual number of these Islands Is
as yet unknown, for the Spaniard
makes an unprogresslve pioneer, but
tliere are estimated to be about 1,400 of
them, great and small, nettling away
Just north of the equator, The total
area Is iu the neighborhood of 140,000
square miles. The population can only
lie guessed at; perhaps 10,000,000 of
souls is a fair figure at whicli to place
The native population Is of the Malay
family, and from all accounts a Simple,
easy-going people when left to themselves, but capable of both perseverance and courage of a high and commendable order when keyed up to tne
lighllng pitch, There Is often a large
admixture of foreign blood In the veins
of these islanders,   it may be either
Spanish or Chinese, and this mixed
race, "Metlsas," as they are called,
forms one of the most lutlueutlal classes In tlie Philippines.
The Philippine Islander has been
probably the most persistently taxed
creature the sun shines on in the world
to-day, for the Spaniard's whole theory
paid a tax of $14. This tax was collected, too. Any attempt at evasion
was promptly and sternly dealt with;
if the culprit was a man the tlmnii.'-
screws were used, and if a woman she
was stripped aud publicly beaten.
But this poll tax -was merely the
start. If the native was a small farmer, he must secure a license before he
could pick and market the cocoanuts
from his own trees. If he wished to
butcher a cow or bullock or shear his
sheep, or cut down a tree, he must first
pay the Inevitable license fee. Should
he fall in this he was sold out of house
and home, sent to prison, or what not,
according to the pleasure and whim of
his Spunish master.
He had to pay a tax if he owned a
beast of burden of any sort���for this
was Spain's helpful method of encouraging hlm to thrift. Every article of
furniture he used was taxed. If he was
a townsnian or villager end wanted to
keep a shop he wus taxed for the privilege; not content with this, the very
scales and measures he used In the carrying on of his business were subject to
an atUlltonal tax. lie paid a tax when
he married, and taxation kept Its crippling grip upon him up to the hour of
Ids death, and then the very grave he
tilled was made lo render tribute to his
oppressors. It could not be dug until
a tax of 11*1.5(1 had been paid either by
his family or friends. As a saUple of
rapacity���the Spaniard's rule Is probably  without  a  parallel.    The  revenue
