Some time ago Charles Chapman
caught fuur mountain goats whicli
were shipped to tlte Zoological gardens at New York and it seems that
now these goats ate reproducing
their species there. The following
is from Rod, Gun and Motor Sports
iit Canada:
Ihi May twentieth, 11108, thc lirst
Rocky Mountain goat ever bred
captivity was horn in New York
Zoological Park. Its parents were
hrougbt from British Columbia by
nirector llornaby in November, 1005,
with three other specimens. All liv
were horn in May, 1000, nnd were
captured in the mountains north id
Fort, Steele.
Since the arrival ol tlte little herd
in New York all its members bave
been maintained in excellent health.
They are fed on very clean crushed
oats iin tbe liiilll, sliced carrots and
potatoes, iin occasional apple ami till
Hie clover hay Ihey can eat. There
are three adult males and two females, ami tbey have been given
three large corrals and a rustle barn
iit the southwestern corner ol the
park. Kor amusement nnd exercise
thev climb all over the root of the
bat ii, ntul spend much lime aloft.
Alt'inngh very level-headed anil
cjbltn in tintes of real danger; tin1
Mountain Goat is shy of being handled, and ivlleil and with nervous tin-
nal lence flings It-sell away from an
nuistretchcri hand. One member ol
the herd will permit their keeper to
touch It. Although Ihey are not
quarrelsome toward each other, tliey
were so free in proditing eaeh other
with lheir skewer-like horns It was
necessary to saw off au inch from
each horn tip.
Quite :i numlier of goats have come
inlo captivity, but very few have
survived longer than a few months
The climatic conditions of the Atlantic coast region have carried off
eight other goats of our acquaintance
in two vears or less, and until now
it has been doubled whether it were
possible to acclimatize the species on
the Atlantic coast, anil maintain it in
health aud vigor up to breeding
point. For this reason, the news ol
the birth in Hie New Yorh herd will
lie hailed with delight by all sportsmen and nature-lovers.
The period ot gestation was Irom
November twenty-live, 1007, to May
twentieth, 1H08, or four days less
than six months. The Md now
public eye was born at three a.m. At
t-hree-teu it arose to its feett by
three-thirty it was Jumping about the
stall, and climbing upon its mother's
back, as sbe lay upon tbe straw. It
nursed for thc first time at thrce-
twenty. Two days after birth it
was thirteen and a hnlf inches high
at. the shoulders and weighed seven
and a quarter pounds. OI course Its
pelage is pure white, nnd like nearly
all voting hoofed animals its eyes now
are practically black- It is very
strong and capable, and seems to
lake fi very hopeful view ol Iile. In
sex it is male, anil it has lieen
christened "Phillip,"—tor reasons Ihal
every goat-hunter will iinilci.sta.uil.
When il sticks it stands directly under ils mother's body, and makes s
continuous whining noise like a young
pnppv. Frequently it butts the udder, and the mother patiently lifts n
hind leg into the air to give ber oil
spring tne best possible opportunity
The mother is a mode] of what wild
animal mothers should be—a good
milker, alTcctlonate, solicitous lor her
offspring, hut quiet and sensible toward the keepers.
The Zoological park goat Itcrd Is ilt
charge of Keeper Bernard McEnroe,
who bus managed It with great skill
and success, lie never permits any
ol tlte gonts to get thoroughly rain-
soaked, but shuts up the herd whenever it lieglns to rain. In New York
it was quickly found that Oreamnos
cannot endure the rain. Tlto pelage
soaks up water like a sponge, holds
it for hours, and the animals have
not sufficient vitality io endure it.
John McKanc, formerly ul Ross
land, who iuvcaUsI jli.DOO.iiuo ul
Schwab's money in Nevada mines,
aud cleaned up a million du.lars lot
hiiusoil, and gained mure lame by
paying 12.50 tu ride acruss oue street
iu a hack, bus gone back to Scot-
laud to live, and is a candidate Iur
parliament in the Uutulricsbiro districl, the uld home of Andrew Car-
it wus Carnegie who recommended
McKanc to Schwab as a mining engineer when the latter decided to Invest iu the gold lields ol Nevada.
McKanc has written to Iriends
abuut bis British political aspirations, and as Carnegie's Scotcli
friends are supporting him, he thinks
he has a goad chance to become a
members of parliament from the Caledonian district, where be has takeit up
his residence.
McKanc was one ot tbo famous
hotel bellboys ol those days fondly
tccmcinbcr tbe one dollar and live
dollar lips he used to give them.
He is probably thc only Palace
guest who hired a hack to drive him
over tho street to tbe (Hand hotel.
"1 want to hire a back to go to
the Grand hotel," said he, Christmas
eve, 1005, to a hackinau at tbu
"It's Jusl across the street," replied tbe Jehu.
I know Dial, but I want a tank,"
vm the reply.
So bo gol his carriage and in a
minute wus driven to the llrand. lie
paifl 11.5U lor Ihe lolly -loot rifle,
ami made an evurlusling friend of the
huekman by giving hint a dollar
McKanc had a quarrel witb
Schwab. Ho wired lbe lormer president of tbe steel trust that he had
closed a ileal lo buy the Montgomery
interest in the Montgomery Shoshone
mine in Nevada tot one million dollars. Schwob sent a savage telegraphic reply that it was too much
money, and to hold things statu quo
until lie could arrive ou the scene.
When Schwab got lo Nevada Mrs.
Robert Montgomery, the wile ol
"Hob" Montgomery, refused to sign
the McKanc deal with her husband.
She wns a ball owner with him, »nH
had to be consulted. Schwab telly
had In pav her one million dollars
and her husband one million dotlaes.
That was the only time a woman
ever got the best ot Schwab, and be
does not like to be remlnddd of tho
matter eves to tbli day.

There Is n vast difference between
a house ami a home. The house
hut the building ami furniture, tbo
outward shelter and gathering phu-u
of the houscllohl. The home includes
the kindly familv affection, tbe
thoughtful care and ren-tly- sympathy
ami mutual confidence and trust of
Hie members. A true home breathes
the atmosphere of love. A child
should he made to feel that his home
is indeed a home, thi- happiest place
in the world to bim, nut merely an
outward shelter and resting place,
but a center of enjoyment, sanctified
and purified bv love, the thought ami
remembrance of which shall he the

prepare for the heavenly home when
the scenes of earth shall have passed

■ The publisher of the Prinec Rupert
Umpire who has, on many occasions,
demonstrated an ability to see obscure causes, shows a weakness in
this respect when his own achievements form the subject lor cowtdora-
tion. The circulation of bis high-
priced paper, he says, la 1100 copies
per week while the white population
of the town in which it is published
is not more than 500, "and has been
obtained because The Empire Is the
only paper in British Columbia that
ean si>eal-j its mind freely on all questions tbat can be discussed in a newspaper that is readable in the homes
of men and women."
Leaving aside, tor a moment, thu
sweeping nature ol the relative part
of tbis statement, we will acknowledge a partiality for newspapers
thai, like the Empire, steer a coursu
of fearless imtapmidoflce. The Prince
Kupert editor entered on his venture
under conditions that gave splendid
opiKirtunily to a man ut bis calibre
to lot-in picturesque in the public
eye, and he made good use of it, but
III an endeavor to eredit himself witb
II the admiration that was intended
foi him lie has failed lo allow any
discount for tlie alloy of curiosity.
While the Pioneer News cannot lay
lair ii |<> a circulation of 1100 pies
per week it is subscribed tit by muc-
lically every resident of New and Old
Alberni, ami yet it has a circulation
in other parts of British Columbia,,
in the prairie provinces. Eastern
Canada, the United States, England,
Ireland aud Scotland, that amounts
to more than that at home. Tbis
patronage has all heen hestnucd
without solicitation.
With all this appreciation we have
never been made to feel that our independent treatment ot all questions
was responsible for the large outside
demand for our goodn. A small portion of this demand we can attribute
to our well-known policy ot ex-toslng
"wilil cat" laud sales, hut the bulk
of il has come from peoule desirous of
l,iviii'' t-nstnd on developments in
and around Alberni. which, for more
than a i-car Past, has been attracting
much attention.
It will he conceded, we nresume,
that Prince Huperl has a larger hold
Mian Alberni on the attention of the
world, in which case Thc Empire
must, have obtained a lot of its circulation in the same wav as tbe Pioneer
Forget it, Mr. Editor of tbe Empire. There is not such a universal
dearth of free press opinion that
people have to call to you, in your
far away home, for it. Nor does
everybody who reads vour tmpcr take

Returning now to the reckless
statement calculate!) to bratid every
paper, except his. own, in British Columbia as servile we will cat! for a
show down with the Empire man.
Here, in Alberni, is a newspaper
absolutely unfettered and strongly
opinionated. It has never accepted
any but strictlv legitimate and moral
business. It bas rejected and condemned propositions out of which,
alone with others, it might have
profit-ted. It lias commended propositions out of wbleh It never sought,

paner is so]civ owned and controlled

Tt can speak Its mind freely, and, observing decencies, it does so on all
questions Within its limited.

We trust tbat The Empire is, In
everv sense of the word, as independent.
(Calgary News.)
The criticism ot Mr. Frank Sherman- Socialist candidate in tbis riding, of the lemieux Act, passed to
assist in the settlement of labor disputes, is hardly warranted by thu
facts. It is quite true that lbe act
occasionally falls to bring about a
peaceful settlement; as in tbe C.P.R,
machinists' strike, but since it was
placed ou tbe statute books a large
number of Industrial disputes have
been averted, ami for tbat tbe act
should be given credit.
Tlie Dally News holds no brief for
the minister of labor, but common
fair play compels a tribute of praise
where praise belongs. The Lemieux
act is an experiment, as all suoh legislation must of necessity be, and until it has a fair trial workingmen
would be lacking in appreciation iu
condemning it. Canada led the way,
and if time reveals defects tbe parlies interested have tbe privilege ot
agitating tor amendment, rather tban
indulging in wholesale denunciation.
Tbe Lemieux act gives the working
man what he never possessed before,
ami that is the machinery to force
the capitalist to arbitrate. All arbitration is not successful, hut if lb is
successful eight times out ot ten the
fact should not be condemned to extinction because of the two failures.
Some complaint is made that the
finding of the arbitration hoard Is
not binding, If it were, then would
rise the cry against tbe libertv o!
tne subject. Where would tbe O.P,
R. machinists he today if Ihe law
compelled acceptance of the arbitrators' award? At work under conditions which tliey feel to be unfair.
The Bally News thinks the glory of
tire Lemieux Act lies in the fact that
the right of the toiler lo strike is
not interfered with, should tbo arbitration prove unsatisfactory. The
Lemieux act provides tbe opportunity
for arbitration and prevents forcible
means until peaceful methods have
failed. How much further should it
go? Time and experience alone
wilt solve that problem. In the
meantime credit the Lemieux act with
iVln-r what was never given before
and don't be carried away by superficial criticism. There's as much opportunity for fairness in politics as
in tiny other game.
Brandon, Man., Sept. 2.—Dr. liar-,
court, secretary of tbe Mheral as- ,

In the year 1.051- Immctllaitoly after
ihi' disastrous liattlu oi Worcester,
Kiun Charles II., Hying from inirsiiinK
soldiers, was succoured by a loyal
farmer named Uichard Pendcrel, who
hid lhe King amid lhe foliage of au
oak tret-—whicli has come down
through history as the "Boscolrel
oak.'' Charles JI., ingratitude (or
Uic honest farmer's services, gave him
a pension of ililrt a year, which lie
ordered Mas to Ih; paid to l'eudcui
and his heirs forever. In 1859. two
men, James Witlrington and Holiert
.Maci.areii, both drsoemlnnts of the
original .lames Pi-iidcrcl, were sharing the pension between them, noth
decided to st-ll their life interest in
the pension. MacLaren, witli the
«*niii which he reall/cd, Itecame a calt-
owner; Withington, staling his intention of going abroad, disappeared
completely. In December last year,
Messrs. Petch & Co., a tirm of solicitors, published particulars of With*
ingion's disappearance, but no fctil-
int,*s id value reached the solicitors
until a few weeks ago, when they
received a letter from a Mrs. Shot-
tun, who lives in Wolverhampton.
She claimed to be a h.ilf-sister of the
James WH-hUlgtoil wlio bail disappeared. \ representative of the linn
went to see her, and established, to
bis satisfaction, her claim of relationship. She descrihed to him How,
when a child, she had beard of .lames
Withington being drowned In the
Itiver Avon. Tbe solicitors thereupon made exhaustive inquiries, but
no record could lie tound at Somerset Mouse of .lames Withmgtou's
death. Hul what Ihey did find was
thai an unknown man had been
drowned In the Avon, near Warwick,
at a lime which cor responded with
Mrs. Shot ton's recollection of her
half-brother's death. Seeing that
the age of this unknown man corresponds with that of .lames Witbiug-
tnii, and the description also tallies,
the courts will in- asked during thc
next sittings to presume his death.
Tbe result of this romantic search
will be tb.it if the judge presumes the
missing James Withingtiin's death
his share of the pension, amounting
to tl a week, will revert to bis old
associate, Itoltcrl MacLaren, who is
still alive nnd in London, although
considerably over 70 years ol age,

Remarkable bravery and presence of
mind were recently shown by a six-
year-old boy named John Collins, the
son of a farm laborer living at Mar
don, Kent. Several children were
playing on the side ot a stream,
when Isabel Hriant, a girl aged seven
fell into five feet of water. Thereupon a panic ensued among the oilier
children, who ran off crying to tell
her parents, but the hoy', John Collins, displayed (he utmost coolness
and presence of mind. Hreakiug i
long branch from an ash-sucker neai
by, he quickly ran along a plan.,
only eleven inches wide, ami held the
branch out to tlir drowning girl, who
was able to grasp it. Then walking
along the plank tlie bov pulled tho
girl fourteen feet through the water
to Some brickwork, where, after n
Irani struggle, lie succeeded in landing
her just as the terrified parents came
running on (he spot. In giving his
version of the rescue the little hero
remarked, "When she got hold of
the stick she did swim."

Joes not come out boldly and make

if charges that we can grip.
Mr. Ames endeavors to arouse suspicion. Against those suspicions is
the positive evidence of a irumber ol
witnesses. Mr, Ames susjjwets that
there was some irregularities in regard to the tenders. He hns no evidence, A number of reliable witnesses upon oath say that the tenders
were correct.
And the westerner is puzzled why
Ui. Ames should come out here to
condemn the system of disposing of
limber limits when tliat, system was
abandoned by .Mr. Oliver some -time

Ames should not have informed his
audiences nf this change.
They are surprised, too, that Mr.
Ames did not compare conditions in
I he Conservative days with eondl-
lioiis al the iiresent time. Why not?
The reason Is that the Conservatives
dlil not put much of the timber up
•or tender, but thev handed it out to
the party favorites without any attempt nt competition.
