Thirteen Mile Trail Was Unanimously Recommended.
Yesterday nfternoon au enthusiastic
mass meeting was held to consider tho
improvement of transportation facilities up the South Pork of Kat-lo creek.
Archie Fletcher was chusen chairman
and W. B. MoGerry, secretary. The
object of tho meeting' having boen
stated by the chairman, the views of
tlio fifty or cioi o representative mining and business mon prosent were
called for.
Impromptu addresses were made by
Messrs. McGerry, Carney, Sherwood,
C'ronin, MoLain, Hicks, Harding, Patrick, McKinuon, Gillis, Cody, McKenzie and Garland.
In substance, it was the opinion of
each speaker that no trail now exists
up the South Pork worthy of the name;
that a large number of rich properties
were at present inaccessible on that account, either to get adequate supplies
in or ore out, although thousands of
feet of development hud boen done under great difficulties-! and, finally, that
an urgent request should be sent to the
Gold Commissioner to build 13 miles of
trail on a wagon grade.
All of the remarks were timely and
to tho point, and showed that this part
of tho district, at our very doors, had
beon greatly ic looted.
Mr. McGen'i, who hail talked with
Gold Commissioner Dennis on the subject, stated tbat Mr. Dennis wished for
definite Information in the matter.
Accordingly a motion was adopted to
request the government to build a
trunk trail, on wagon road grade, from
tho .Montezuma concentrator 13 miles

no authority to hind thc company. Thc
case is a complicated one. "The transactions of tlie defendant," the judge snys,
" and those associated witli it, present a

under the general rule "that when there |

June 12.���Lieutenant Colonel R. W.
Huntington's battalion of marines wliich
landed from the transport Pa-p'her on
Friday and encamped on the hill guarding the abandoned cable station at the
entrance to tlio harbor of Guantanamo,
has been engaged in heading off a rush
attack by Spanish guerrillas and regulars
since 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon. The
fighting was almost continuous for 13
liours, until 0 o'clock this morning, when
reinforcements were landed from the Marblehead. Four of our men were killed
and one wounded. Thc advance pickets
under Lieutenants Neville and Shaw are
unaccounted for.
Among the killed is Assistant Surgeon
John Blair Gibbs, son of Mayor Gibbs of
the regulur army, who fell in the Custer
massacre. His home wns at Richmond,
Va., but he hns been practicing in New
York and entered the service since the
war began. He was a very popular officer. The others killed are Sergeant
Charles H. Smith of Smallwood, Private
William Dunphy of Gloucester, Mass.,
and Private James McColgan of Stone-
ham, Mass.
Corporal Glass was accidentally wounded in tlie hand.
SpnnUh K.ohn I'nknown.
The Spanish loss is unknown, hut it
was probably considerable. The splashes
of blood found at daylight nt the positions the Spanish forces occupied indicate fatalities, but their comrades enr-
ried off the killed and wounded. The
engagement began with desultory firing
at the pickets, a hundred yards inland
from the camp.
Captain Spicer's company was doing
guard duty, and was driven in, finally
rallying on tlie camp and repulsing the
enemy by 5 o'clock.
The bodies of Privates McColgan and
Dunphy were found, both shot in the
head. Tlie large cavities made by the
bullets, wliich, inside a range of 500
yards, have a rotary motion, indicate
that the victims were killed at close
range. Tlie bodies were stripped of shoes,
hats and cartridge belts, aud horribly
mutilated with machetes.
When the bodies were brought in the
whole battalion formed three sides of a
hollow square about the camp on the hill
top. Below in the bay were the warships
at anchor. In the land front of the camp
is a deep ravine, and beyond this arc
steep hills. The adjacent country is
thick with hushes.
AiuerlcuiiK   Fine  Turn ets..
The sky was blanketed with clouds and
When the sun set a gule was blowing seaward. Night fell thick nnd impenetrable. The Spanish guerrillas concealed in
tho fliaparal cover had the advantage,
the men furnishing a line target ngninst
Ihe sky. The Spaniards fought from cover until midnight discoverable only hy
the Hashes nf their guns. The repeaters sounded like crackers in a barrel. Thc
Marblehead'S launch with a Coll machine
gun in her bow, pushed up the bay en-
lilading the Spaniards and it is thuught
thut some were killed. Thc marines trailed much blood to the water's edge and
there lost it. Sharks arc numerous in
the vicinity.
The. ships threw thoir searchlights
ashore, the powerful eyes sweeping the
deep tropic foliage nnd disclosing occasionally   skulking   parties  of  Spunish.
It all represented a transformation
scene nt the harbor. Kach discovery of
the enemy wns greeted by the cracks of
parbine Hie along the edge of the camp
ridge or hy the long roll of the launch
and Hie machine gun, searching thickets
with a leaden stream.
Hand to Hand Strnarirle.
Shortly after midnight cants the main
attack. The Spaniards made a gnllnut
charge up tho southwest slope, but were
met by repented volleys from the main
body and broke before they were one-
third of the way up the hill, but they
ciinic SO close that at points there was
almost a hand to hand struggle. Thc officers fired their revolvers. Tlie Spaniards got i,.rough the open formation to
the edge of the camp. Colonel Jose l"ain-
pina, the Cuban guide, discharged his revolver and they, turning and finding
themselves without support, ran belter
skelter down the reverse side of the hill.
It wns during this assault that Assistant
Surgeon Gibbs was shot in the head in
front of his own tent, the farthest point
of attack. He fell into tlie nrmg of Private Sullivan and botlt dropped. A second bullet throw dust in their faces.
Surgeon Gibbs lived 10 minutes but did
not regain consciousness.
Continued   All  Night.
The surgeons of thc hospital corps then
removed their quarters to the trenches
about the old Spanish stockade north of
the camp. The attacks were continued
st intervals throughout the rest of thc
night with firing by small squads in various directions.
Towards morning the Are slackened.
Dawn is the favorite time for attack, and
as the cast paled, the marines, lying on
their guns, were aroused.   Some were ac
tually asleep, as they had had no rest for
48 hours and tired nature could not longer stand the strain. But no attack
came. Three new 2-pound field guns,
wliich could not be used during the night
for fear of hitting our own men, shelled
several squads of Spaniards after daylight. They dove into the bushes like
prairie dogs into burrows as the shells
broke over their heads in the gray
Found  the  Sergeant'*  Body.
As the correspondent of the Associated
Press talked with Major Coekrell, who
was iu charge of the outposts, word
came of the finding of the body of Sergeant Smith. He was reported as having been killed at 5 o'clock on the previous day, but it appears that he had
been seen alive at 10 o'clock in the evening. When and how he was killed no
one knows at this writing. Neither had
the man been mustered out, nor had thc
outposts of Neville and Shaw been relieved.
Lieutenant Colonel Huntington and
Major Coekrell gave high praise to the
nerve and steadiness of officers and men,
especially the younger, as the engagement wns a baptism of fire for a large
majority. Tlie men were in darkness and
in a strange land, but they stood to their
posts with courage and fortitude, and
there was no symptom of panic. The
marines, though much disgusted, were
eager for more fighting, promising to inflict heavy punishment. Today the amplest precautions have been taken, and
as the Dauntless was leaving, reinforcements were landing from the Marblehead.
The Attacking Force.
Estimates vary as to the attacking
force���some say 200 and others run as
high as 1000. Colonel Campina, thc Cuban guide, said the Spanish were mostly
that they were regulars, as most of the
Irregulars, but the reports of the discharge of Mauser rifles would indicate
that they were regulars, as most of the
guerrillas carry Remington rifles. Tlie
Cuban guerrillas, as a rule, have more
dash and courage than the regulars.
The new campaign uniforms prove satisfactory nnd are almost invisible at a
distance of 200 yards.
The Lee guns caused several accidents
on the drawing of cartridges. Corporal
Glass shuttered his hand.
Despite thc loss of the men, who nre
keenly regretted, the men rejoice that
Ihey have been engaged in the flrst fight
on Cuban soil. They sailed from New
York the day war wns declared. Since
then until they landed on the shore of
Guantanamo bay they have been cooped
up in the Panther, and they had begun
to fear that thc troops would beat them
after all.

who committed the crime. He'was arrested about an hour after the girl's absence was noted. Tlie police wanted him
on suspicion of burglary. They found
him in Ihe lumber yard not 50 feet from
tlie outhouse, Tliere were blood stains
on his cbilhcs and when questioned about
them he could give no satisfactory answer. When today's discovery was mude
the police thought of this circumstance.
Since then witnesses have been found
who will swear they saw the man and
the child together on the evening of her
disappearance and shortly before his arrest. The man gave the name of Chas.
Smith, but is also known to the polico
us Higgins.
May Not lie the Man.
Bntle, Mont., .June 12.���thousands of
people today visited the scene of the murder of little I'.llicl Gill and hundreds went
lo the county jail to see the man who is
suspected of it. They wero in hopes of
being able to identify Charles Smith as
Hie mnn who had been seen ip various
parts of tlie city making indecent advances toward young girls and children.
None of them were able to do so, however, and some of the authorities are beginning to waver a liltle in their faith
that they have the right man. They arc
bending every effort to find the guilty
party, and most of them think Smith is
the man.
One feature of the case is that when
the little girl did not come home to supper and the anxious mother wetfl to look
for her, she was attracted by the crowd
that had gathered around the officer who
arrested Smith on a charge of burglary.
This was not over 26 feet from the outhouse in which the body of the child was
found later, and where it was, no doubt,
at the time.
Not realizing that she had any interest
in the arrest, the mother passed on and
continued her search.
The Gills have been following the race
horses over the western circuit, both
father and mother acting an cooks.

San Francisco, June 9.���Tlie Evening
Post will say today that the cruiser Charleston will not go to the Philippines at
once, but that her destination is the island
of Guahan in the Ladrone group, which
are controlled by the Spanish and which
are about 1500 miles from Manila, and
3000 miles from Honolulu.
The chief city of Guahan is exceedingly
well fortified for such a small place and
affords one of tlie best harbors and coaling stations in the Pacific About six
months ago the fortifications were
strengthened by thc Spanish to present a
formidable resistance in case of attack.
The Post says thc United States will
seize the group and use Guahan for a
Pacific coaling station in addition to any
other she may desire.
The Charleston, the Post continues, was
ordered to wait at Honolulu for the flrst
fleet of transports that left the city and
to take the ships to the Ladrenes. It is
asserted that the artillery wliich went on

The company hopes that the City of
Topeka will be substituted for the Queen,
which at present is in Alaska waters. Tho
City of Para arrived last night and will
at once be fitted out for Manila.
The capacity of the transports already
engaged or likely to be chartered is as

The production of piecious metals in the
state of Washington during 1897 was 21,-
752.504 ounces of gold and 242,720.85 fine
ounces  of  silver,  valued  at   $449,064.15
and $313,898.46 respectively, according to
a report of the assayer at the Helena 'A-
fice.   Below is a comparison of the 1897
yield with that of tlie previous year.

Totals   ..    ..J697.268.05   1763,562.61   J66.294.56
.This indicates an increase amounting to
$116,294.56 in the output of gold and silver
during 1897. These ligures hu've been
compiled from returns furnished by the
producers of-precious metals in the state
of Washington, and from data given by
the various smelters und refineries handling the product of the mines, and from
the records of the government mints and
assay oflices receiving the bullion from
this state. Cure has been taken to avoid
all duplication in the preparation of the
total product of the state.
Owing to tiie present nature of the industry it has not been found practicable
to prepare more detailed tables than those
that accompany this review. To do so
and show the production of the different
counties would be a breach of confidence
in certain instances, as practically the
entire output is from a single mine and
thus what has been given to this bureau
iu confidence would really become public.
To review the yield and the origin of
precious metals in the state of Washington it is necessary to go beyond thc scope
of actual production and look into the
forces at work which will huve au immediate influence on the further production.
Nor can one be oblivious to thc many discoveries and locations and the develop*
ment of the same.
The increased production has an importance beyond that expressed in the above
figures in that tlie development of the
mineral resources of the state is being established on a productive and permanent basis. Intense activity has characterized the mining industry in the state of
Washington during the past year nnd for
the actunl amounts of gold and silver produced this activity is proportionately
much greater than in any other state.
Only in recent years have the mineral resources of Washington attracted attention
and until recently the best energy and
thought have been concentrated toward
the prospecting of the enormous areas
embraced in the several districts. As a
result many valuable discoveries have
been made and their importance is rapidly attracting wide interest to the possibilities of these future mines. The increased production of $06,294.56 in a total yield of $763,562.61, or over 8. per
cent, thus becomes of paramount importance in that it shows a growth of this
industry from prospecting and a desultory
production to a profitable hjisis. To those
who understand the progression of "prospecting" into "production" it is evident
that Washington is at no distant future
to take rank with the older producing
The inaccessibility of the mineral districts hns retarded an earlier and a larger production. Thus- fur the discoveries
have been of large ore bodies of low grade
oie, which will n it warrant transportation
to or treatment at smelters, but must be
worked where mined by milling, concentration or cyaniding in order to afford a
profit. These districts constlutut* all of
thc northern nnd central western portion of thc state.
Small lots of placer gold have been secured in Garfield, Lewis, Lincoln, Pierce
and Whatcom counties which would aggregate hut a small amount. Owing to
these having lieen bandied by those who
purchase small quantities, both their origin, identity and amount have been lost.

Frank Longmaid, who hns been sampling a placer mine near the old mining
town of Heartown, in Granite county,
Montana, has returned to Helena with a
sack of gold as the result of his investigations. He secured an option upon the
property at $10,000 last fall. To thoroughly sample the property he made preparations to utilize the melting snows of
the spring in washing the gravel through
a steam washing plant. Two thousand
yards were treated, and Mr. Longmaid
said recently, in response to a question
concerning tlie result, that the product
averaged 90 cents a yard. Mr. Longmaid
estimates the cost of operating at 25
cents a yard, and figures the amount of
undeveloped ground at 000,000 yards. He
has organized the .Summit Mining Company, witli a capital of $30,000 to operate
the property, and is the president of the
corporation. It is intended that 500 yards
a day will be handled. Mr. "ongmaid's
visit to Helena is for the purpose of completing arrangements for the steam shovel and pumping plant to be used in the
work  of  mining.

Harcourt or Mr. Chamberlain to the suggested allance or understanding was loudly cheered, thc Irish alone dissenting.
Harcourt, liberal leader, said:
"No one is more anxious or more eager
for closer und more permanent relations
with the United States than myself. Ever
since I have had anything to do with
public life, my foremost object has been
the cultivation of good relations with the
United States."
Chamberlain, at the end of a long defense of his policy ns secretary of state
for the colonies, made an eloquent reiteration of his desire for close, cordial and
intimate relations with thc United States,
"And morr close, more intimate, moro
definite they are the better 1 shall be satisfied."

Madrid, June 11.���The campaign inaugurated by some of the foreign newspapers in favor of peace between Spain
and the United States, is not approved
here. According to thc opinions of several
generals, Spain is capable of continuing
war in Cuba, for two years even under the
most unfavorable circumstances, herefore,
they add, it is useless to talk of peace
unless it implies a return to the status
quo ante-bellum.
The government, it is added, has not
received any suggestions of peace from the
powers, and in political circles, it is declared, if such sagged ion were received,
the government would politely decline to
entertain it on the ground that Spain
has decided to pursue the war to the bitter end.

The present campaign has not pro-
grossed sufficiently far to enable every
turn in its path from now to election
day to be clearly visible. But sufticient
is known to predict with unerring certainty that tbe present Provincial Govornment as a whole will be triumphantly returned to power. The people are
not insensible to the high character of
the men composing it, not* to the sood
that tbey have accomplished for the
Province during the past four yoars.
It ls hoped and believed that tho now
slocan riding will signalize its first
c'ei'tio'i by emphatically declaring its
ii[i|ii*oval uf tin.' wise and beneficent!
policy ofthe Tnrne; t'ovcrnment. A
government which has shown its faith
by its works in advancing the best interests of this Province from seashore
t ) the Rocky mountains, from the international boundary almost to the frozen
zone, should go back io office by acclamation.
Rut the self-seekers of tho Opposition are opposed to this. Its leaders���
who are also its rank and file���each
sees a premiership in his imaginary
grasp, But thoy lack the numbers,
tho organization and the unity of purpose to accomplish anything. Their
purposes aro heterogeneous, their aims
uncertain and their' views widely divergent. If ono here and there should
by chance be elected, he will present a
lonesome and useless lignro among the
throng of Government supporters. If
Slocan riding would consult its best interests let it make no mistake, but
surely return a Government supporter.

.Ml of his holdings ate In mining properties, and while sufficiently in co-operating hands to look out for themselves,
yet any attention that ho would bo
likely to bestow upon them would only
the more fully keep him iu line with
the actual mining interests and needs
of the riding.
Mr. Retallack has been proffered unsolicited support from the leading mining men of every scctiou of thc riding
including Kaslo, Whitewater, Sandon,
New Denver, Silverton and Slocan
City. His worth and recognized standing among them will carry much
weight in legislative circles. A mau
of strong inlltiouce and recognized
force of character is needed to properly
represent Slocan riding. Such a man
is found iu Mr. Retallack.
How have the mighty fallen '. We
have often read able articles by Bre'r
Cliffo, of tbo Sandon Mining Review,
on the poverty of thought exhibited in
mistaking the calling of names for
argument. But in his yesterday's issue
he characterizes those newspapers who
dare to differ '-oin him politically a*
"shysters."! At this rate what may we
expect before the campaign closes?
The New Denver Lodge well says:
"Mr. Retallack has taken a stand;
wo know where to find him. He is for
progress and prosperity, a policy that
means more to our mining industry
than anything else. Wc believe
through him, and his influenco at Victoria, the interests of this section can
be best served,"

The following changes ln the British
Columbia mining laws ohould bo carefully studied by those interested ln
mining lu this Province:
First of theso refors to  tho location
of fractions.   In all fractious survoyed
from now on, whether stakod correctly j
or not, the  surveyor may  adopt  the
boundary  lines  ot  the   surrounding j
claims, provided, no side exceeds 15001
foet in length.   In other words, the lo- i
cator is entitled to the vacant ground |
that   he  claims,   even If  he does not,
stake it i'i -.itch a manner as to include
it all, which he seldom does.
By a recent decision of the courts a
prospector lost a claim because of inability to securo. the post necessary to
mark" the location. The amendment
provides that in eases where claims aro
staked above the timber line, or the
prospector can not secure the necessary posts, he may erect monuments of
earth or stoue.
In staking an extension tho posts aro
often planted so as to form a wedge-
shape fraction between two ends of the
two claims. These fractions have often incurred great expense, not only in
recording and surveying, but in cases
where they carry the lead, and thus become of such value as to promote litigation. The amended act authorizes
the surveyor to include such fraction,
provided it does not cover more than
.51.05 acres, tbe area of a full claim,
and provided further that two location
posts are together.
By failure to record assessment work
within the required porlod of one year,
either through oversight or the inio-
understandlns* of partnership interests,
valuable claims have beon lost. Now,
if a prospector fails to record the work
within a year, he has 30 days' additional timo in which to make the record by
payment of an extra $10.
Another change 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 ho
pleases in a year by paying the recording foe lor each assessment dono to the
extent of $1(10.
In case anybody should adverse an
application for a certificate of improvement aud crown grant, the contestant
must have his claim surveyed immediately and file a plan made and signed
by an authorized provincial lund surveyor with the writ.
ITo obta'rt a crown ci'ant in ISOfl it
was necessary i'1 do assessment work to
the amount ui $500 and io have the
claim surveyed, which meant another
$100. In 1807 the act was amended so
as to provide that up to May 1,1898,the
cost of such survey should count as
work done on tho claim, not to exceed
$100. Iu plain Kngllsh, it counted as
an assessment and as work toward the
crown grant. A survey generally costs
$100. The last legislature extends the
time to May 1, 1899.
Hereafter, in adverse proceedings in
connection with the title to mineral
claims, before any court, each party to
tbe proceedings shall givo afilrmativo
evidence of title. Heretofore the burden of proof was on the contestant.
Tho feo for recording assessment
work has been reduced from $2.75 to
$2.50. Heretofore the fee for recording
assessments has been 25 cents higher
than other fees.
Auybody who pulls down a legal post
erected to mark a boundary or location
of a mineral claim, or any writing by
law required to be thereon, is liable to
imprisonment for six months or a fine
of $250, or both. This is supposed to
be directed particularly toward preventing the use of old posts by people
who restako a claim and sometimes destroy evidences of a prior location.

'-ilocf.il riding ere Mr. Retallack and
Mr. Creen, No others tbat the public
has heard of, are talked of. Mr. Retallack represents tho Government

As isoihf gentlemen arc. respectable

Funds*   Necessary   for   Its   Erection
Have Been Secured.
Spokane, June 10.���Tliere will- doubtless be two exhibits of ore from Washington at thc Omaha ex position. One will be
in the mining building where it is expected to compare favorably with the exhibits from states that have seen many
more years of development in mines. The
other will be in the Washington stale
builing. For Washington is to have a
building after all.
Some time ago tho commission abandoned the idea owing to lack of time but
Seattle and Tacoma were not satisfied.
The builing itself was intended to be a
handsome display of Vvasbington's lumber interests and tliere was disappointment wiien it was decided not to erect it.
Yesterday Captain C. H. Thompson received a message from Chairman Thompson of the commission sating that Seattle
and Tacoma have raised the necessary
funds and the building will bo erected.
It was also stated that the grounds has
been secured and the work of preparing
the lumber and all the construction that
can be done in the state will be done at
once and the material shipped at an early
day at Omaha.
Transvaal Expecting 'War.

correspondent of the Daily Mail says:

It's a poor writer that escapes criticism.
Wlllii-lmimi   of    Holland    and    Her
Mother See sIkImm of Paris.
Wilhelmina, the youthful queen of Holland, and her mother, who have been paying a visit to Paris with the object of
making purchases in view of the coming
coronation celebrations at Tlie Hague,
have indulged energetically in sight-seeing and shopping. Both, quietly and
tastefully dressed,went to the Louvre one
day. and arriving too soon, had to wait
in their carriage until the official hour of
the opening.
The copying artists were already busy
at their work as the queen went around
the rooms, and in some instances were
politely requested by M. de Stuers to remove their easels for a while, so that the
original from which they were copying
could be fully seen. Queen Wilhelmina,
who is herself a clever artist, remained for
a considerable time looking at the "Gia-
conda" of Leonardo de Vinci, and at Mu-
rillo's "Virgin." Shopping was begun in
the Hue de la Paix, where the young
queen purchased a considerable amount of
jewelry, and after visits to various other
establishments thc royal Shoppers walked
back to their hotel.
Apropos of the story of the betrothal
of Queen Wilhelmina of Holland to Prince
Bernard of Saxe-Weimar, now officially
contradicted, it is interesting to notice
that, according to the newspapers, this eligible queen has had almost as many
suitors as Penelope herself.
First of all, there was Prince Albert,
the heir to the Belgian throne, who is
now touring round the world. Then came
Prince Louis Bonaparte, the Russian
colonel, and thc Comte de Turin, the
Duke of Abruzzi s brother, who was impossible because he was a Human Catholic.
Finally there was Prince Charles of Denmark, now married to Princess Maud. He
went to Holland to meet Queen Wilhelmina, but the interview led to no satis-
factorv result.���Xew York Press

it may not generally be known that
for' juhny yenrs the general government
haV conducted a savings bank for the
accommodation of certain citizens, says
the Kansas City Journal. ��� An act of
congress of the date of May 15, 172, pro-
, vides that any soldier in the army may
deposit with any paymaster his savings
in sums not less than $5, and it shall be
the duty of the paymaster to supply the
soldier with a deposit book, in which
are entered the amounts of his deposits. When the deposits have reached
the sum of $50 the government is required to pay the depositor interest at
the rate of 4 per cent, per annum. Having once deposited a sum of money the
depositor is not permitted to draw it
until the date of his discharge. The deposits are exempt from attachment for
debt, but they forfeit to the government
if the depositor deserts from the army.
The government assumes the responsibility for all such deposits and a defaulting
paymaster can work the soldiers no injury. Paymaster Kucker once told the
writer that about 30 per cent, of the enlisted men in the regular army availed
themselves of this privilege.

the dam that Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound is woman's ever
reliable friend.
"I cannot praise Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound too highly.
"Por nine
weeks I was in
bed suffering with inflammation
nnd congestion of the
ovaries.   I
bad a discharge all

When lying

felt quite
comfortable; but as soon as I would put my
feet on the floor, the pains would
come back.
" Every one thought it was impossible for me to get well. I was paying $1
per day for doctor's visits and 75 cents
a day for medicine. I made up my mind
to try Mrs. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. It has effected a complete cure
for me, and I have all the faith in the

When a young Laplander is in love
with a girl he and she run a race. He
is heavily handicapped, so that she may
win if she chooses, and if she outrun
him he cannot propose again. Of
course she suffers herself to be overtaken if she cares for him, but the consent of her parents must be obtained before she can be married. The law of
the land is very strict on this point, and
in olden times the man was subject to
capital punishment if .ie married without the consent of the girl's parents. After a Laplander has chosen a bride he
sends her a present of a girdle, a ring
and a quantity of brandy; he goes so
far as the door of her hut, but remains
outside until invited to enter, when a
bumper of brandy is offered to the girl's
father; if he drink it it is a sign he consents to the marriage, and the young
lover then promises to give the girl some
clothes, and pays a sum of money, generally 100 copper dollars, on the spot.
This, of course, is a remnant of marriage by purchase,, which, in primitive
times, succeeded marriage by capture.
Banns are published once in Lapland and
the marriage ceremony is very short.
The bride wears her hair loose and has
a gold band round her head. Her parents and her dowry are generally reindeer, and she and her bridegroom remain with her parents for a year after

Tbe Queen Resent'.  Life Has Been a
Most Ferlous One.
The Archduchess Christina, Queen
Regent of Spain, Is an Austrian and
was married to the bite King Alphonso
XII. In 1879. She has three brothers
and two half sisters, the daughters of
her mother by her flrst marriage. These
sisters are the nearest descendants of
the Stuart kings of England, and the
elder, who is married to Prince Lud-
wlg, of Bavaria, the heir to that kingdom, Is styled by her Jacobite adherents Queen Mary III. of Kngland. Tbe
younger sister married the late Prince
John de Bourbon of Spain, and is thc
mother of Don Carlos, Duke of Madrid,
the Carlist pretender to the throne
of Spain. It was with the hope of effecting a reconciliation between the
royal house of Spain and the Carlist
faction that the Archduchess married
to King Alphonso XII. The hope was
never realized.
The young Archduchess had by no
born, and on the same day be was proclaimed King under the regency of his
mother. Though devoted to all her children, the Queen Regent Is especially
fond of the little Klug, Alphonso. The
Queen Is most judicious in the way in
which she brings up her children, nnd
even the King ls subjected to strict discipline during his times of study. She
Is an excellent linguist, and makes a
plan of talking to her children In various languages, so that they may become accustomed to all. Dike so many
other royal children, the King and his
sisters bave been partly educated by
Kngllsh governesses, and they all speak
English very well w-ilh an excellent accent. German also is almost as familiar
to tbem as Spanish, as It Is their
mother's tongue.
Queen Christina leads a very busy,
anxious life, and Is one of the hardest
workers In Europe. The Queen does not
often relax from ber usual regal demeanor, but when she does she is perfectly charming, with a keen sense ol
humor aud an almost girlish delight In

means an easy life before her when she
accepted the baud of King Alphonso,
n uian whose heart was lu tbe grave of
hia flrst wife, and whose health wns already showing signs of the Illness
which ended his life at so early a tlate.
The Queen, however, young as she was,
quite understood her difficult position,
and from the first week of ber married
life showed herself capable of fulfilling
her duties, and also showed that she
possessed the rarest of all gifts���exquisite tact. Ten months after ber marriage her eldest daughter, the Infanta
Matia-da-las Mercedes, Princess of Austria, was born at Madrid, on Sept. 11,
1880, and a little more than two years
later the Infanta Mnrla Thereoia was
born, on Nov. 12, 1882.
King Alphonso XII., who had always
been far from strong, died on Nov. 23,
1885, Just three days after he had completed his twenty-eighth year. He had
reigned eleven years, a period of peace
and comparative prosperity for the
Spanish nation; but the success of hia
government was mainly due to the wise
administration of Canovas del Castillo,
his minister, who was assassinated last
May 17, 1886, tbe present King was
tbe pleasures of her children. All her
life, Hlnce ber marriage, has been spent
under the most serious circumstances,
but she has still left to her tbe capability of enjoying life and Its pleasures.
It is nt San Sebastian, which Is on
the sea coast, nml where the Queen possesses a palace of fairy-llke beauty,
that her Majesty Is seen ut her happl
est. It Is here that she takes her annual holiday, and, with her children,
revels ln the beautiful country and seaside life, away from the streets of Madrid, and free from Ihe most trying of
her state duties. The King and his sisters are all good swimmers, and the
princesses encourage their brother and
help hint, when the waves ore too
rough���for King Alphonso Is a somewhat delicate child. Cycling Is also
among the favorite amusements of the
princesses and their brother, and thore
are very merry rides taken ln the
neighborhood, and In the beautiful
grounds that surround the palace. Often the Queen's mother, the widowed
Archduchess,Elisabeth of Austria, pays
her a visit. The Archduchess Elizabeth
is now 68 years of age, but she ls ln excellent health and looks quite ten
years yottnger.
