In RwDstrance to tiie Proposed
Alphabetically Arranged List of Free Miner.
Who Protest Against Stringent Laws
for Prospectors.
The  following  petition   In remonstrance against  the proposed  Carlyle
amendments   to    the     mineral   act
was    forwarded    to    Victoria     last
Wednesday.    It Is the outcome of the
mass meeting reported In  last  week's
issue of tho News.    Between 200 and
300 names of free miners are attached.
For the convenience of the reader they
ure here arranged alphabetically:
To the Honorable Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of
Urltish Columbia in session assembled.
The petition of the undersigned freo
miners of the Ainsworth Mining division in West Kootenay sheweth, .
That we have learned that your honorable house is to be asked during tbe
present session of the legislature to
amend, the "act relating to minerals
other than coal," in such a way that
prospectors would be required to perform their annual assessment work upon
Btich claims within 00 days after the
lirst record; also to provide that all
claims no matter .at what date staked
shall expire on the first day of January in each year, with discretionary
power to be given to the gold commissioner of each district to vary these requirements in such cases as he shall
seo lit.
We, therefore, your petitioners desire to line that we oons.U.. i,Ui;t jUcV
amendments are objectionable, insomuch as 'tbey would greatly increase
the hardships already devolving upon
prospectors and also inasmuch as they
would impose upon the gold commissioners an amount of labor and responsibility which it would be impossible
for them to satisfactorily perform.
We therefore humbly request your
honorable house to mako no such amend
mcnts to the Mineral Act, and as In
duty bound your petitioners will ever
pray,

Fres't. McArthur of the Board   of
Trade at Victoria to Fight Car-
lyle's Amendments.
Last Tuesday's Rossland Minor says
that at a meeting of the Rossland board
of trade, President J. B. McArthur was
instructed.to leave for Victoria at onco
to present to the legislature, the demands of the board in matters concerning advancement of the interests and
welfare of Rossland and Kootenay.
Two of these matters, a representative for Soutn Kootenay, and the proposed amendments to the mineral act,
were covered at the meeting last Monday night, in a motion that inasmuch
as the principal mining districts of tho
upper country of this province have,'as
yet, little or no representation in the
provincial houso, further , important
alterations {and amendments to the
mineral act be postponed for the present and until the promised redistribution act comes into force.    And

further, this board does not concur in
the suggestion of Mr. Carlyle, provincial mineralogist, requiring assessment
work to be done within 90 days. The
motion was heartily endorsed and supported by the other members of the
board.
The mover of this motion, W. A.
Rolt, stated that Rossland expected to
have a seat without being tributary to
any other town or district, and above
all that this mineral act should bo let
alone for a few years or until at least
wo have a representative to voice the
sentiments and needs of tho mining
districts. He was of the opinion
that the mineral aot should
not be tinkered and toyed with
until that time, and that many members' who have heretofore taken a hand
in legislating for the mineral districts
would do well to devote their time to
the needs of the salmon canneries, farming industries and other things with
which they are better acquainted.
In reference to that.'portion of tho
motion referring to the completion of
assessment work within 90 days, tho
opposition to suoh an amendment was
general. .Mr. McArthui- said that
prospecting wits just what tuo country
needod, and he did not think that prospectors should bo bothered for the
next ten years,
At tho regular meeting of the city
council last Wednesday afternoon a
full board was present.
An appeal from the Kootenaian, for
aid from the city council to the extent
of $250 to assist it lb getting ont a
"Board of Trado Edition," was laid on
the table.
Alderman Archer brought up the
question of impounding stray live
stock, and said that he was dally approached with complaints concerning
stray horses and mules. An ex-mayor had stated that Btray live stock had
broken Into his door yard and devoured
his rose bushes.
Alderman Whitesid* said that these
animals were 'hungry, even ravenous
and were breaking Into every place in
search of food.
Mayor McAnn suggested that until a
pound building could be provided, that
the owners be summoned in accordance with the by-law, to appear before
the police court.    .
The following resolution moved by
Alderman D. W. Moore and seconded
by Alderman Whiteside was then
adopted:
That the chief of police is hereby
& Mann, the Stikine River Railway
contractors, to go to the Yukon in their
behalf. This princely salary, the pay
of a British minister, it was still further reported, Mr. Carlyle had refused
because, although he had not signed at
the time, any papers with the British
American Corporation, he considered
himself as bound to give his services
to the great Knglish company.
The provincial mineralogist himself
was reticent, on the matter when approached by a representative of the
News-Advertiser. He did not deny,
neither would he confirm the strtement
mado regarding the reported offer of
Messrs. Mackenzie & Mann. Prom
what he said, however, it appeared
quito true. As to the British American Corporation Mr. Carlyle remarked
that he had till Monday to finally make
up his mind as to whether he would
accept the responsible position he has
been strongly urged to take.

The clerk was instructed to notify
A. Fletcher that the council oannot
legally pay the rebate asked for by
him, with reference to his donation to
help purchase lots for city hall purposes which the council has since:
agreed to sell, and that he will have to
apply to the courts for authority for the
council to pay the amount.
The mayor and clerk were authorized
to execute a contract with D. C. McGregor, for the construction of a bridge
across Kaslo river on Fifth street.
The subject of letting the city printing next came up. Moat of the members seemed to be Impressed on reflection, with 'the wisdom of Aldormun
Whiteside's views expressod at last
meeting, favoring tenders and thus
getting the work done for the city as
cheaply as possible. For tho following
resolution was adopted without discussion:
"That the clerk call for tenders for
all city printing excepting job work, to
be submitted at the next general meeting; tho successful tenderer to furnish
bonds tn the sum of $250."

The issue of tbe Vancouver News-
Advertiser of the 13th inst, contains an
Interview wfth Provincial Mineralogist Carlyle In whieh the following
paragraphs occur:
"It Is well known that-Mr.Carlyle desires to see the mineral aot amended
in Important ways, particularly as aN
fectlng the location of olalms and the
subsequent assessment work. The
amendments that be desires to see are
heartily endorsed In Kootenay by many
mining num. Indeed a number of
prominent mining mon in the Slocan
region have just sent him a letter to
this effect. The writers aro mostly resident around Kaslo and say that they
heartily endorse   Mr.   Carlyle's ideas.
"This letter from the Kaslo people
Mr. Carlyle said fairly expressed his
views. He does not, however, think
that thoy will be able to secure the
changes they desire during the present
session of the legislature, but he feels
that much good will bo done by having
tho matter brought to the attention ot
the mining publio through the news,

Premier Tumor  Endorses Helium*
Telegram t��  I.aurlar.
In   h
Victoria, Feb. 17. -British Columbia
Is in hearty accord with the Dominion
in the effort to secure the benefit* accruing from the Canadian gold fields.
The following telegram, sent 'today to Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier **b/
Hon. J. H. Turner, premier of British Columbia, expresses tbe universal
sentiment throughout the province:
"Hon. Wilfrid I.aurier, Ottawa, Ont.
Realizing the vital necessity of the
protection of British Columbia and.
Canadian Interests generally, for the
Immediate construction of a strictly all-
Canadian line to the gold fields, I
would stirongly urge your earnest consideration of a measure for the speedy
construction of a railway from a northerly seaport ih British Columbia to
Telegraph Creek, , (Signed)
J. H. Turner."
The coroners jury in the case of Dennis -Connors killed by J. Doyle, alias
Sullivan at Kuskonook, returned a verdict that the deceased came to his death
from a bullot wound caused by a shot
fired from a revolver in the hands of
.T. Doyle, with intent to do bodily harm.
Last Friday the preliminary examination of tho alleged murderer was held
before Gold Commissioner Dennis at
Nelson. L. R. Forbes, provincial constable at Kuskonook, was the first witness, and testified to the death of Connors at the Alexander house, owned by
G. Eriekson, the victim dying in the
witness' arms about half an hour after
being shot.
Dr. Haw ley testified that the bullet
had deoended between the fourth and
fifth ribs, through the heart and into
the abdomen.
E. Clair, who had been under influence
of liquor, detailed how the prisoner
bad attempted to rob him of some
money earlier in the day at the Butte
hotel, and afterwards .vhat happened at
the Alexander house.
The pr isoner when asked if he had
any questions to ask, coolly replied
that he "guessed not, as things had
boen explained about right."
After the evidence was read to thc
prisoner ho was asked if ho had anything to say and was given the usual
caution. Doyle stood up iu the prisoners dock and said his name was Davis
and that he had lived In the west for
18 years. The shooting he deolared
was^Jone iu self defense, as Connor*
had thieatcned previously to shoot him
and when he stepped up to him in Alexander's hotel, Connors got up and
made a motion as if ho were going to
draw a revolver. Ho understood that
Connors had it gun and shot Itr^t..
Tho. prisoner was coninitttud to stand
trial at tho next assizes In June.
"The prisoner, from all account* its u
tough character," says the Nelsuti TK
buuo, and only a fe,w days ago tlmfiit-
lo shoot a rertaiu restaurant keeper in
Nelson. He Is In in his lie's In nge
and is a powerful man, standing it godfl
six feet. His 'face would be rather
pleasing, but thu Joworing scowl and
shifting and hflwtaned Isyos proclaim
his character."' �����

Summary of Railway-Steamer Time
Cards from Kaslo.
A novelty in skates, sulil by experts to promise an improvement in the healthful winter exercise corresponding to the Improvement made by the pneumatic tire
In bicycling, has been invented by a Brooklyn mnn. The uew skate is an affair
on rollers attached to a metal strip shaped much like the runner or blade of the
old Ice eradle skate. The rollers���three in number���nre in liue and revolve each
on its own nxle, reducing friction in the minimum. They nre of steel, guttered,
and net as runners nml wheels together, the edges taking hold of the iee in striking
out with n grip much tinner than the old-style runners are cnpnlile of, no mntter
how Sharp they may be, and sliding over the iee when the wearer is in motion
with vastly less loss of power than the steel blades that have beeu so long in use.
The wheels or rollers nre adjustable, and each pair of skates is to be provided
with two sets. One set is to be of thin steel, for the use? of hookey players and
fancy skaters: the other set will be thicker and less guttered, for ordinary use.

A writer lu the Arena makes the venerable Lafayette say in 1825, from the
balcony of an old house, still standing
at tbe corner Of    Park   and    Beacon
streets,  In  Boston,  "Where  are your
poor?   Where are your iioor'f    In this
assembly 1 see them not.    Why have
they nol come also?"   Then some nne
In the crowd replied, "We tire nil here,
rich and poor together."   But with true
French gallantry the veuerable Frenchman responded: "No: the poor nre not
here.   They are not anywhere In America.    They are In Kurope."    Cpon the
basis of this little scene the writer remarks: "And thnt makes the difference

very few men living who can remember
how au average crowd ou the streets of
ltcmlon looked ill \KS>. That they looked better fad, better dressed, or curried
more change In their pockets, few believe. That there was more equality
Is due imrtly to the more elementary
diameter of trade nnd industry, lt Is
always so, from the original tribe up
to the moat complex civilization. But
It ls these complex conditions that call
out the displays of philanthropy that
we see on Thanksgiving day and ln the
holiday season. In saying that there
were no poor in Hoston in 1825 (If he
said It), Lafayette was bound to lie
polite, but we all know better. Inequality Increase* as society advances
from the elementary to the complex.
And so does philanthropy. But because of this are we prepared to return
to the original tribal condition? Hardly. It Is In the effort to remove Inequality and ameliorate Its effects that
should engage every good citizen, that
the whole moral nature of the community Is advanced with thc increase
of lta material wealth.

Is Self ^' S' Senator Thurston of Nebraska
r<ivernilieilt recently contributed an article to
Munscy's magazine ou "Political Con-
a Failure ? ditions in the West" in which he
reviewed the results ol the last presidential campaign.
Senator Thurston is a Republican and is in accord with his
party on the dominant political Issue of the day���the money
question, tn this article he attempts to pay a glowing
tribute to the foreign born voters, who, he asserts, saved
the country front dishonor by.averting indejiendent bimetallism, and without whoso aid. this could not havo been
done.
Senator Thurston does not soeni to realize; that when
he says this ho practically acknowleges that tho republic
is a failure. Who shall save tho people from themselves?
If United States citizens reared within her borders and
educated in hor public schools, most of thom tracing their
lineage back to a Now England anoestry require to havo
citizens imported fro.n monarchical forms of government to
nave them from dishonoring thotnsolves and their country,
why. bettor go back to the monarchy. Would Senator
Thurston admit this? Probably not. But the logic of the
situation points inevitably to that conclusion.
Far different is tho view takon by the chairmen of tho
different bimetallic parties iu the addresses recently Issued
by them as noted in our news columns, These aro bugle
calls to all who are opposed to tho single gold standard
and the domination of monopolistic trusts, to assert their
Americanism and patriotism by standing shoulder to
shou'der against a common foe.
'Far differont also is tho view taken by Hon. W. J.
Bryrn in his recent lettor to the New York Journal replying lo critics who asked him to show cause why the 10 to 1
fight should not give way to somothlng else. It was a
ringing manly lettor full of encouragement to those who
believe in the level hoadedness of the common people, and
will do much to crystallize and solidify popular sentiment
against the Republican party, which he asserts was the
first party that ever dared abandon the Declaration of Independence. If 'theso appeals have the effect that we
believe they will, there will be no need to ask after 1900 if
self government is a failure.
tional copies that we desired to circulate ln our extra
edition. If the editor of the Kootenaian wishes to learn
our circulation, our books aro open to him or the public,
and we challenge him to a comparison of subscription lists.
As a matter of fact, there Is not, much difference between
tho circulation of the two papers in thin city.bul putsfds ��'ti
concede the Kootenaian is as yet ahead of us. Ills circulation .is neither ten times larger than ours nor yet two times
as large, notwithstanding that by the grace of Mr. Bostoc
he has been established here four times aa long as we have
been. It is too bad that the incident of the extra so ruffled
up Dave's feelings. He is just realizing what it means to
have some live competition.
The Kootenaian next talks of its big investment hero
and our small one. Lot him try to duplicate our plant for
three times the amouut he appraises it tit, and he will fail
miserably. The 13. C. News has at its command sufficient
equipment to get out its regular issue in its usual complete
style, and at the samo timo rent a suttleient portion of It
to the new Searchlight Publishing Company at Kuskonook
to get out a good paper thoro also. If tho prices set on his
own plant are as much exaggerated a3 we know the rent
item to bo, the editor of the Kootenaian could cut all his
boastful figures in two and be much nearer tlio truth.
Tho Kootenaian says that it will not quarrel with us
again. We are glad of that, as wo think newspaper
squabbles are tiresome to the public, and are interested to
know if the Kootenaian can keep its word.

Once there was a Ram Pasture oecu-

Ho lived so Long Undisturbed
Ram.
A Fable
With
a. Moral. here that he Thought he Owned the
Pasture, and ho grew Fat.jftnd Saucy. One day Parmer
Opportunity concluded w>lTet down the Bars and turn in
some Horses, as tho Feed was Fairly Good in spite of the
Paot ibat the'Ram Spoiled more than he Ate.
Now tb?�� Ram was a Great believer In Butting and he
bellowed to the Horses that Utftpy did not get out of his
Pasture, ho would Proceed to Butt them. "Get out ol this
Pasture," he Pawled. "Get on" from the Earth. What
Righl have you lo Live, Anyway?"        ,
The "Horses paid uo Attention to hlm- and went on with
their Grazing. So, ho proceodod to hU Butting. As he
came near oach time, the Horses would step aBide and the
Ram's impetus would pass them Uartnlest_. Ho Kept this
up, until ono of the Horses, who was standing close to a
largo Rock culled Public* Opinion, stopped aside as tho
Ram Orttoe lunging at him; and the Ram ran full Tilt
aeaitist this Rock and broke his Neck.
Moral--Haec tabula docet tbat Rams should not claim
the entire Pasture before they got their Title Deeds.

For an AbllSe   Alwtit-last Friday cvjftj^'it began
���� to bo talked around oitfMnrcots that
jTlOll^ls-1 . u n,ij,i,ty thunderbolt was being forged
in the editorial pen of the Kootenaian, and that It would be
IhnnehtMl upon our devoted heads on the following day.
Fh* chief cause of thc bud taste In the Kootonalan's.mental
inside, was that it had not yet gotten oyer the effects of
thai "unfortunate Incident," the; mass meeting, and did not
want to be reminded of lt further. It was rather unfortun-
tte for the Kootenaian, it must be admitted.
The B. C. News still survives,    lt Is a case of. "the
itrvival  of  tho  fittest."    It will take more than a few
���.rfilumns of billingsgate to dispose of us.
It is supposed that some answer,: however, will be
jxpected to the remarkable effusion appearing in last Sat-
nVday's issue of the Kootenaian. The editor of that paper
i8 an adapt in tlia style of argument that consists in calling
tfithnes. ' Til begin with, he calls the editor of,the.B. C.
rH'Ws ''a p&us fraud." He makes no attempt to prove
jWftM the charges of piety or fraud. The editor, ot tids
paper'has tried to lead a decent and respectable life aad
���.believerthat be has succoeded. If the Kootenaian's editor
considers this as a personal affront to his style of. laying, it
is really too bad. t' '
We are next charged with representing-to< the city
council that our circulation is larger than tbat of the
Kootenaian. Such a charge is simply a He1, manufactured
out of whole cloth, and we challenge the Kootenaian to Its
proof.
As to'the amuBing little Incident Jif ttye puroliase of
two Here's of white paper from the Kootenaian���lt was

The results of tho destruction of the war-ship Maine in
Havana harbor, are attaining international proportions.
The latest talk is that President McKinley will demand
anywhere from ��15,000,000 to $50,000,000, indemnity of
Spain. The ship itself cost $5,000,000. If the Spaniards
in Havana are not guilty of the Maine's destruction they
aro certainly very foolish to rejoice at it so openly.

The Mineral City News is one of the late journalistic
candidates for public favor. It is an eight-page monthly,
quarto, and is published at Rossland by Alfred W. Dyer.
Mineral City is yot in its Infancy. The paper will probably
move there later. Mineral City is on Cariboo creek, seven
miles east of Burton city, which in turn is 20 miles south of
Nakusp on tho east shore of Lower Arrow lake. This
young paper says that Mineral City is 45 miles west of
Kaslo. Possibly, as the crow Hies; but by ordinarily
travelled routes it is 97 miles. By the way, It is Interesting
to note that mostly every new western town has to have the
affix "city" to start with. As soon as it is old enough to go
it alone, it drops the crutch. Kuskonook is an exception.
Kaslo was once Kaslo City.
Man Killed by Snow Slide.
It is said that the name of tho man killed by a snow

The Noble Five, Lucky .1 im and Payne slides have
already distinguished themselves this year for destructive-
uess, but tho above is tho only fatality reportod so far.

THE HERCULES GRUI'I*.
A   Promising    Cooper    Creek
Near Argenta.
Property
The News was this week shown some
very handsome specimens from an exceedingly promising group of four
claims, known as the Hercules near
the (north end of Kootenay lake, on
Cooper croek. The property is owned
by W. E. Hodder, Archie Morris, A.C.
Pearson, P. Walsh, Jas. Harvey and C.
W. McAnn. 'It ls only ono and one-half
miles from the lako and close to the
survey for the Kaslo-Lardo railway.
It was located lust April.
Development has boon mado on two
of tho claims, which aro numbered
from 2 to S. On No. 5 at the huso of
of the mountain a tunnel has been
driven in 25 feet. Thero is a five-foot
vein of dry oro which runs In stringers
and has given an assay of $10 gold and
300 oa of silver. The other development is on No. 2 on the mountain side,
where a four-foot shalf and twelve-foot
breast has been made. The specimens
here look like lime carbonates and
carry considerable lead. An outcropping struck off by a chance blow, over
500 feet from any development week
was highly mineralized. The boys
doubtless, have a good thing.
Death of Richard Robert..

THR B. C. LEGISLATURE
Various*   Incidents   of   Life   at the
Capital.
Victoria, Feb. 17.���The legislature
continues to kill time in tho discussion
of the speech from the throuo. While
thero are more important matters to bo
dealt with this session, principally in
connection with the opening up of the
Yukon, the members on both sides
seem more interested in the coming
elections. The debate may close tomorrow, and next week the serious
business of the session will doubtless
be taken up.
Hume of South Kootenay today presented an argument for redistribution.
He maintained that Kootenay now contained one-fifth of tho population of the
province, and in view of tho large contribution of that district to
the revenues, its claims for more
representation in the house should
not bo noglected. He urged too, that,
steps to prevent river pollution and to
guard tho public in the district should
not be relaxed.
Kollie presented a petition for a bill
to in-corporate a railway from Albert
canyon to the Waverley mines and
thence to Revelstoke.'
There was a little scene between
Cotton opposition member from Vancouver, and Hon. C. E. Pooley, cabinet
minister and president of the council,
yesterday. Cotton claimed that Pooley
had allowed his name to be used on a
mining prospectus, that he act the part
of a decoy duck. Up jumped Pooley
and told Cotton ho would not dare to
spoak that way outsido the house.
Pooley is in spite of his age a splendid
athlete and quick-tempered. Cotton
intimated he was not afraid to say
the same words outside, whereupon
Pooley dared him to come out and do
it.   He did not do it.
Kellle yesterday presented a petition
for a railway from Arrowhead to Kootenay lake, and Huntor one from the
Kootonay & Northwestern Railway
compauy. Contrary to usual practice,
tee premier states that the estimates
will probably be brought down in
another week. For years the estimates have never been brought down
early in a session, and so it may be
taken as anf augury that this session
will not be a long one. Naturally, after
the estimates are passed business is
rushed.
HAY UNITE ON SILVER.
A Strong Combination  of Parties For a
White Metal Fight.
Washington, D. C, Feb. 15.-Addresses on behalf of the democratic-
populist and silver republican parties,
which is the result of the conference
that has been held among the leaders
of these parties at the capital for the
past few weeks, were issued today.
They seek to unite the members of the
three parties in future elections on the
financial issues as of paramount importance, and appeal to each of the parties
to consolidate all along tbe lines for
this purpose. The address to the democrats is signed by Senator James K.
Jones of Arkansas, chairman of tbe
democratic national committee, and
endorsed by democratic congressional
committee; that of the populists by
Senator Marion Butler, chairman of
the .populist national committee, and
the 25 other populist members of tho
senate and house; and that of the silvor
republicans by Chairman Townsond
and the silver republicans In the senate nnd house, aud also by ex-Senator
Dubois.
Delegate* to Victoria.
The council appropriated $200 to do-
fray the exponsos of delegates to Victoria to present to tho Legislature the
wants of Kaslo and vlolnlty. Alderman .1. D. Monro waB chosen to represent the council, and the other delegates wero left to be chosen by the
board of trade.
At the Rink.
At tbe rink last Saturday night the
"Brownies" beat the "Heavyweights"
in a hockey match, and also in a tug
of war. Sam Hunter won the potato
rice and W. E. Hodder the fat man's
race.
Last. Tuesday evening a curling
game between 'Messrs. Green, Trethe-
way, Whellains and Goodenough on
the one hand, and Messrs. Buchanan,
McKlnnon, Easton and Moodie on the
other was won by the former group by
a score of 13 to 3.

Tho New Paper on the K. * S. Land
Co. ami Their Agent.
The Kaslo & Slocan Land Company,
owners of the Kuskonook townsite,
have shown a disposition to be most
reasonable and generous in their treatment of tho poople here. Those who
came before the town wae surveyed
will find no disposition on the part of
the company to charge higher rates,
on account of having built before buying. On tho contrary, those will find'
their enterprise rewarded for their-
faith in the town. Those who came
since will find tho company ready to
co-operate with them in every thing
that is for the best interests of the
town.
Mr. Frank M. O'Brien, the agent of
the K. & S. Land Co. here, is a gentleman of experience and ability in this
line of business, and the Searchlight
feels sure that the company could not
have.found a better man for the place.���

Crow's Nest Laborers Treated Well.
In an interview with a Vancouver
World reporter, John I.<Booge of Moyie
City was asked: "Can you say anything as to the complaints of ill treatment to men working on the new railroad." He replied, "I think the complaints -have ;been ��� greatly magnified.
You see the men hire for a certain
time and from their flrst wages their
railroad faro is withheld. If they
work their full time it is refunded.
Generally speaking the company is fair
with Its men. The complaints have, I
think, usually come from a class of
mon who intended to get out west and
then not do any work."

One of the mosi practical ideas in connection with tin- relief of tne miners iii Hie Klondike region is tliHt of the employment of reindeer in the expedition, As announced in a reccm dispatch from Washington, the Government has taken this
mutter in hand, as well ux the control of the entire i'X,>editi<in.    Secretary Alger hns made .'i requisition on William Akell-
imiii. thc Federal reindeer herder, for uuo of the useful animals for Immediate use.   Condensation of foodstuffs makes it
possible for Hie authorities to send large ainountH with little comparative expense'. The tracts bilitv aud faithfulness
of the animals render the undertaking one of much less difficulty thnn would lie the esse under any other oircunistiiiict'S.
When it is remembered that each of the ikltl reindeer can haul _IKl pounds, the value of ihe proposed service cannot
he overestimated. The sturdy little animals will easily haul sledges and cargoes over glaciers and through mountain
passes when horses would lie absolutely useless.
Reindeer nre small animals, compared to the other families. They arc usually a trifle over four feet iu stature, have
short bodies, compactly put together, and strong, short legs, which carry them over the ground at a very rapid rate. The
l.nps say these beasts of burden can trot along hauling a sledge loaded wilh 'JIHI pounds at the rate of from nine to ten
miles an hour, and maintain this speed for inii'iiy hours without apparent fatigue. They nre nimble and sure-footed lis
the chamois, hnve the endurance of the burro nnd lack the obstinacy of the latter capricious brtlte, All the conditions
which environ the proposed expedition are to their liking, so that nature sccins to have designated them as the means of
relieving the sufferers.

nepln Canal project. But lie would go
farther than the advocates of that canal. They wanted the government to
appropriate $11,000,000 or $8,000,000 foils canal from Hennepin, on the Illinois
Kiver, to some point west or northwest
of it on the Mississippi; for the widening of tbe Illinois Kiver nnd for the
enlarging of tbe Illinois aud .Michigan
Canal, wlilch wns constructed by tlie
SKNATOII THl/nSTON.
State of Illinois ln tbe first hnlf of the
century. Mr. Thurston wants a canal
from the Mississippi Blver deep enough
and wide enough to accommodate a
��hip-of-wnr. He wants the river and
canal channels east of Hennepin made
equally wide and deep, and he wants a
ship canal opened from Laku Erie to
tbe Atlantic, either by ths widening of
the Erie Canal or by the opening s>f a
canal to cross Lake Cbamplalu on the
line surveyed a year ago by a government commission.
The use of this enual would Im the
cheapening of transportation rates on
the farm and range products of the
West to points of consumption and ex-
fur his advocacy of the canal system,
.lohn O, Calhoun, In 1.S45, presided over
n waterways convention which declared that "the project of connecting
the Mississippi with the lakes of the
North by a canal, and this with thc
Atlantic Ocean. Is a measure worthy of
the enlightened consideration of Congress." Grant approved the canal
project. So did Arthur. President
Monroe, In one of his messages to Congress, said of the general scheme of
waterways: "When we consider tbe
vast extent of territory In the United
Stntes, the great amount and value of
lis product ions, the connection of its !
ports and other circumstances on which I
their prosperity and happiness depend, I
wc cannot fail to entertain a high senxe j
of the advantage to be derived from
the facility which may be afforded in
the intercourse between them by menus
of good roads and canals. .Never did a
country of sueb vast extent offer equal
Inducements to Improvement of this
kind nor ever were consequences of
such magnitude Involved in them."
The "consequences" at tbe present
time Mr. Thurston estimates ut $80,-
000,000 to $400,000,000 a year���thnt is,
possibly two-fifths of the present cost
of running tbe whole govern men I.
The Hennepin Canal project received
serious consideration several times at
the hands of Congress. More than ten
years ago the State of Illinois offered
to the government the .$3,000,000 State
canal between Lake Michigan and the
Illinois River on condition thnt It
should be widened and connected by
way of the Illinois River with the Mis-
slsslpi. The distance from Hennepin
to the Mississippi by the proposed canal
was sixty-four miles, while by way of.
the mouth of the Illinois tbe same point
on the Mississippi was 4(!8 miles away.
But Congress, after having elaborate
surveys and estimates made, let the
project go by default. One point of
difference wns the choice of a Western
terminus for the canal, and thut difference   would   arise   again.     Three

"There ls no doubt ln my mind," said
the Senator, "tbat the government has
got to undertake some day a scheme of
internal Improvements which will give
work to the unemployed. There ls no
considerable number of men out of
work now���that Is, of those who want
employment���but during tlie three
years of depression I have no doubt
tliere was an average of a million men
eut of employment. Labor leaders at
times estimated the number at 2,000,-
000 and at 3,000,000. I believe it would
have been better for tbe greet mnss of
the people If the government had found
employment for these men. The community had to support them In some
way. Every idle man Is a tax on' the
man who Is working. And lack of work
creates discontent, which stirs up a revolutionary feeling.
"The scheme of Improvements, I
think, will take the form of a system of
waterways which will cheapen trans*
portetion and keep the rate* et U�� r��U-
routes wero proposed. The cheapest
and most satisfactory, from an eng.f
neerlug point of view, was the Marnls
d'Oaler or Meredoeie route, terminating
at Albany, seven miles above Rock Island. Another route terminated at Wa-
tertown, twenty-one miles above Albany, and the third at Bock Island.
Gen. Newton and Secretary Bndicott
favored the Bock Island route, largely
on account of the arsenal there and the
consequent Importance of tbe canal In
time of war. The local Interests represented by tbe three termini supplicated*
Congress for years, and their failure
to agree, no doubt, had much to do with
tbe defeat of the canal bill.
Ipimrcl ln-.liion.il oa Lines of Clothes
for drown Up   Reformera.
Tbe new baby l.s not outdone by the
new woman nowadays when It cornea
to clothes. The little lady bus her apparel faithfully fashioned after the
gowns of the growji-up followers of
dress reform. From the so-called "booties" on ber pink toes to the hood-shawl
for ber little bald head, tlie miniature
mistress of the nursery is strictly 'in
style, from tbe Jennes* Miller .standpoint.
The idea of dress reform for the baby
sprung Into popularity but a short time
ago. Previous to that time aa ambitious man with an M. D. to his name
had patterned several pieces of stockinet apparel without beauty, which proud
mammas promptly refused to put ou
their little ones. Subsequently members of tbe fair sex succeeded in developing numerous Improvements for the
bttby along less exaggerated dress reform lines.
The chief advantage of tliere vestment Innovations for tbe infant over
tlie old-fashioned modes Is tbe banishment of that tiny thing which has
been the cause at count lots wails In tbe
nursery���the point of a pin. The cure
for this crying neod of the baby was
also accompanied by other Improvements In Its atitire, as to give it precisely what women seek to find ln their
dress reform gowns. That desideratum is greater freedom of the body and
more comfort in their clothes, as well
as to reduce to a minimum the necessary pieces of apparel.
One of the more useful additions to
common-sense dress reform for the
buby nre the "liooties." which came out
but a few months ago. They ure'hand-
knitted foot coverings tliat come to the
knee, where tbey are fastened wltb a
tiny ribbon. "Booties" make unnecessary the rather awkward-looking pinning blanket. They are dainty llttte
things, with delicate twrders of pole
pink of light blue.
both rolie. This necessity is made of
light-colored uun'fl veiling and tufted
with n bright zpliyr. Two tiny cords
secure It at the neck, and lit Is briar-
stitched with fancy floss.
The little cashmere saccule ot white
embroidered with a delicate color Is
loose In cut to allow freedom, while the
sleeves are small as becomes tbe style
of the dress reform baby.
Tine reform Idea Is likewise carried
out In the mull underskirt with deep
embroidery ou the edge. In place of
tbe conventional band about the waist,
the skirt Is gathered to a yoke over the
shoulder and ls buttoned ln the back.
As io dresses, the reform baby may
liave as many as ber mother will permit, only they must conform to the
same effects can-led out centuries ago
by tlie Grecian maiden. That Is to say,
tbe waist line, if there Is one, must
come close under the arms. Illnsrtratlve
of this idea is the white mull dress with
fancy lace yoke, which has a narrow
sash that ties ln front In a dainty 1x>w.
Then for negligee there ls tbe comfortable cashmere wrapper delicately embroidered which the baby wears when
ber flrsst tooth begins to give her trouble.

What Malaria In.
"Malaria is not a distinct conditions
germ or poison," remarked a physician
to a Washington Star reporter. "It is
the result of a combination of circumstances, conditions and {koisons. At
certain seasons it ls rather prevalent,
not, however, because there Is any particular poison in the sir ln this city or
section, but as the result of very warm
ilays and rattier cool nights. The bodies
get very much warmed up during the
day, ami the anxiety to cool them Inclines persona to ride about in open
cars or sit on the porches or the parks
in tlie evening. They therefore cool off
too suddenly, and the congested condition of tilings resultant for want of a
lietter na.me is called- and known as
malaria. In old-fashioned times the
same condition of things was known

The Uny shirt with a bit of ribbon
bow at the neck ia made of white cashmere these days, aa the knitted ones
are considered old-fesbloend by the
dress reformers. It is edged wltb silk
and buttoned down tbe front.
To take the place of time-honored
linen band for the baby's waist Which
bad to be rolled around tbe Uttle one
and then securely pinned in place, the
reformers have made a knitted band.
This Innovation is firmly held In place
by .two straps which go over the ahoul-
ders. At the lower part of the inifted
band is a pad to which tbe diaper may
be attached. This garment obviates
any unequal pressure on tbe body and
throwa part of the strain on tbe shoul-
dera rather than all about the walat.
Th* modem baby muat also have a
an bilious fever. There ere, ot counte,
many persons who are strong enough
to resist the evil Influences of the night
air, but In cases where the system la
run down many are very sensitive to
It. I do not know that there is any
panacea for this -condition. If a person
feela tbat be ia run down, it would be
watt for him to take a tonic propara
tlon for a couple of weeks and particularly to avoid the night air. This riding about tbe streets in the open can
at night tdme la very bad for some persons, though It does not seem todo any
harm to cithers. On the whole, however, I think there are more banned by
it than otherwise. If people must go
