(Copyright 1884, br the United Prone.)
London, March 3.���Mr. (jlladstone's withdrawal from the premiership opens a most
complex situation in domestic politios.
What the consequences will be, it is now
impossible to foretell, although the air of
thu political clubs and the columns of the
newspapers are filled with surmise, advice
and warning. Difficulties will not cease
finally with the elevation of Lord Rosebery
to the premiership, or the two or three
other Cabiuet changes whioh are contemplated. The career of the reconstructed ministry, will proceed for some time probably on
the linos hither.o followed. The glamor of
Mr. Gladstone's name will be doubtless of
the greatest use in making olear the way o-f
the Cabinet as long as he shall remain in or
near the arena of polii ies, but it must be
remembered that tbe government majority
is small and that Lord Rosebery, who has
never been an ardent home ruler, is likely to
have trouble with the Irish members after
the withdrawal of the old Premier's conciliatory influence.
Henry Labouchere, the fighting leader of
the Radicals, and most of hiB supporters,
are not likely to be reconciled to a Peer in
the premiership, even under Mr. Gladstone's influence, especially in view of Mr.
Gladstone's final declaration against the
House of Loids.
Tho attitude of Justin McCarthy aod his
ant.i Pamellite lollowers, will not be chosen
definitely until thi ir meeting on the even-
of the new session. At present they are
not disposed to take part in the conflict
over the leadership, a* they regard the
pledges given by the Liberal party as satisfactory to the claims of Ireland.
Much depends upon the attitude of Sir
Wm. Harcourt, Chancellor of the
Exchequer, and Mr.. Gladstone's
tried lieutenant in the House of
Commons. Sir William seems to be
the only possible leader, of the Liberals
in tho Commons. ShouU- he oonseni to
serve under Lord Rosebery, much of the
ministerial difficulty would be removed, although minor causes of embarrassment
would remain.
It is impossible for any Liberal commoner
to oppose any item of the Newcastle programme, merely with a view to ejecting a
Government headed by a Peer, but if Sir
William and other ministers dislike the plan
of the new regime, a dissolution of Parliament is more likely than a reconstruction of
tbe Cabinet. The summoning of members
from t he outside and the front benoh to take
seats in the Cabinet is regarded as unlikely.
Anot her series of questions is involved in
the uncertainty of the Unionists' attitude to
some variations, which Lord Rosebery
might, introduce in the Liberal polioy. However much the Conservatives and Liberal-
Unionists may desire to oust the new minis-
iry ut the first opportunity, their action is
likelv to be directed largely by the tactics
of tbe Liberal party members, and should
Lord Rosebery insist upon a larger Naval
vote tban the one favored by Mr. Gladstone,
the Conservatives and Liberal-Unionists
would support him. The Opposition in
thiB case would emanate frdm the Radicals and Irishmen. Sir William Harcourt, moreover, is not likely to favor
the lar_e naval expenditures to which Lord
Rosebery is believed to be inclined, because
he is anxious to have a popular budget.
There is endless guess work concerning the
personnel of the reconstructed Cabinet.
Many Radicals predict these changes: Sir
William Harcourt to be Premier; Professor
Bryce, now Chancellor of the Duchy of
Lancaster, or Herbert Gladstone, to be
Chief Secretary for Ireland in the room of
John Morley; and Mr. Morley to succeed
the Earl of Kimherly as Secretary of State
for India, Some Bay that Herbert Gladstone wid succeed I'M ward Majoribanks as
chief Liberal whip and patronage Secretary
to ihe Treasury, and that Mr. Majoribanks
will be made Secretary for Scotland in the
room of Sir Geoige Trevelyan, who will
succeed Earl Spencer as First Lord of the
Admiralty. The same persons expect that
Earl Spencer will retire from the Cabinet.
There is no di*>ubt that the caucus managers and wire-pullers and many clubmen of
the Government party, prefer Sir William
Harcourt to Lord Rosebory in the premiership. The extremists among them declare
absolutely they will not have Lord Roseberry, who has done none of the Government's hard work, who was never a commoner, and iB tainted with jingoism. The
fact in that Lord Rosebery is a strong observed man. While many of the elder ministerialists may not wish to serve under him,
he in the favorite of the great majority of the
Liberals outside parliament.. The voters who
look to him, are not of ihe class who
attend meetings and agitate, but on election
days they are the backbone of the party.
They pri fer Lord Rosebery to others beoause he constantly proved hil firmness,tact
and fo> esightedoess when he was chairman
of the London Hounty C**uncil. The Midlands and tho North of Eugland, remember
him for his success in setaling the disastrous
coal strike of last year, while Scotland, regarding herself as the natural heir to
Liberal Leadership, prefers him to any
other candidate yet mentioned for the
premiership.
SAN FRANCISCO FLASHES.
Vermont  Day nt  tne  Fair  Opening
Canadian Headquarters.
San Francisco, March 4.���One hundred
and three years ago to-day Vermont was
admitted into the Union, and the event ia
being celebrated as Vermont Day at the
Midwinter Fair. This is the first of the
state days since the opening. The weather
is cool but pleasant, and there is quite a
crowd at the grounds, many of whom an*
u.ttive* of the Gteen Mountain State, Ex-
cruises took place ihis afternoon in Festival
Hall, and included addrecses hy Governor
Full* l* ol k'ui.n.i.t , who doused the continent to participate in the celebration, and
Governor Fuller of California. ThiB evening there will be a grand display of fireworks, aud the electric tower will be illuminated for the first time.
It waB nearly noon before Governor Fuller
of Vermont, his wife and distinguished
members of the Vermont contingent arrived
on the scene. The exposition buildings had
been gaily decorated for the occasion and
the Governor of the Green Mountain State
could not but reoognize that something has
been done in his honor. He was given the
head of the table at the "Sugaring Off," in
the Agricultural building, as a matter of
course, but there was nothing formal about
this part of the proceedings. A happy incident occurred in the height of "Sugaring
Off": whi'e Governor Fuller and his friends
were seated in the midst of their winter
like su.iouudiiigs with plates of snow in
front of them, fl, delegation from Alameda
county building appeared, aud presented his
excellency with a bunch of Niles almond
blossoms. Immediately after conclusion of
"Sugaring Off," the Vermonters repaired to
the festive hall, where hundreds of others
had already assembled and where the
formal exercises of the day took
place according to the programe. Another
feature of the day was the opening ot the
Canadian headquarters, a little cottage
erected for that purpose at the east end of
the South drive. There waB a gathering of
something like 1,000 people there at 2 p.m.
The Midwinter Exposition band furnished
music for the occasion. An address of welcome was delivered by Guy. R. McLellan
and a response was made by Director Gen-
eial De xyuug. The Canadians eniertaiuul
their guests in truly hospitable style and
established themselves at once as supporters
of the headquarters which is sure to become
as popular as any on the Exposition
grounds.

Strikers StiU Rioting.
Charleston, W��� Va., March 2.���A
despatch received here from Evan Powell,
Manager of the Mount Carlson Co,, nine
miles above Eagle, asks tbe Governor for
troops, saying that they are threatened from
front and rear by a large torco of strikers.
The Governor wired for details, but up to
10:30 o'clock has received no reply and has
issued no orders. A special from Eagle
says that part of the militia have started
from that point for Powellton, which is
about five miles distant on Armstrong
creek, off the line of the railway. A large
body of strikers was said to be oo the way
to Powellton for the purpose of interfering
with the men now at work. W. T. Atkins,
one of the wounded rioters, is dead, and it
is feared trouble will ensue when he is
buried. The governor is using every means
to get at the true situation, he has instructed the sheriff to spare no pains at the inquest to locate the guilty.
Berlin Rejoices Oyer Gladstone's Retirement-He Was Not a Favorite There.
Copyright, 1894, by the United Press.]
Berlin, March 3.���Interest in the British
Cabinet crisis here if confined to the probable effect of Mr. Gladstone's retirement on
England's foreign policy. Mr. Gladstone
has * ever been a favorite in this city, whose
people know litt e of England's domestic
politics. The Vossische Zeitung welcomes
the succession of Lord Rosebery as a guarantee against a weak international policy.
The National Zeitung says: "Mr. Gladstone was the most dangerous enemy of the
British constitution. The effects of his
policy will not be easily obliterated." The
Tageblalt says that the English Liberals
have nobody of the necessary authority to
fill Gladstone's place.
Vice-Admiral Holman, secretary of naval
affairs, told the budget committee of the
Reichstag on Friday that the disastrous
explosion aboard the warship Brandenburg
off Kiel last month, was due to the faulty
construction of a steam valve. His statement has been received with astonishment.
The newspapers have only words of blame
for the Vulcan shipyard officials, who by
some inexplicable oversight, allowed the
plans of the main valve to go to the workshop without having provided for the extra
safety contrivance.
Dana Horton, the bi-metallist, has come
to Berlin and sec himself in communication
with the German champions of silver. He
watches closely the proceedings of the Im-
perial currency commission.
Emperor William haB approved the design of a new decoration of the Royal Protector of Prussian Fiee MasuiiS. Tue design

The military unions in Leipsic, seconded
by the municipal authorities, will invite the
German military societies of the United
States to send delegates to the city to aid

Felix Lipschuetz, vice-manager of the
Dresdener, Residecze Theatre, shot himself
dead last night in the lavatory of the express train from Muntchfor to Berlin. He-
had been to engage Barney in the management of a Bwlift., thentre next September.
Lipschuetz retired to the lavatory just after
the train left Jueterbog, about forty miles
from this city. He did not return to his
compartment and when tbe train reached
the Anhalt station someone mentioned his
disappearance to the guard. Herr Rabitez,
a friend who was at the station to meet him,
immediately went to the lavatory and found
Lipscheutz dead with a bullet wound in his
temple. A revolver lay on the floor beside
him. Ou the dead man's breast was pinned
a paper bearing these words: "My
name is Feliz Lipscheutz and my home
is in the Marien Strasse, Berlin."
In his pocket there was a letter addressed
to his friends thanking them for their assistance iu his last business ventuie and deploring the bad fortune of the actors whom he
had engaged for his opening next fill. He
hoped they would find other engagements,
he said, and he recommended them to the
coneidera ion < f other managers Lipschu-
elz's suic de is believed to have been due to
financial troubles connected with the diffi-
cu ties he found iu obtaining money with
which to make the deposit required by proprietor Grosskopf, of the Berliner theatre.
Baron Hartogcnis and Rabitez say that
without Lipschuetz's knowledge they had
already arranged matters with Grosskopf.
It is possible that Lipschuetz's heirs will be
obliged to carry out the agreement with
Grosskopf.
Italian Deputies Support Crispl.
Roue, March 3.���Premier Crispi addressed the deputies to-day in defenaeof his policy
during the Sicilian uprising. "The Government would have betrayed the country,"
he declared, "had they allowed the Insurgents to enter Palermo, where the leaders
proposed to proclaim formally tlv Sicilian
revolution. We are resolved to combat to
the fullest extent all revolutions�����, whether
they ho Anarchists or Socialinti." After
Premier Crispi's speech, the Chamber ap-
pio\ed by a large majority the declaration
of the state of seige in Sicily and Massa as
well as t he other exceptional measures of the
guVet unionl.

The Highest Authority in America.
Printers Ink, the highest newspaper authority in America, speaks thus of Tue
Daily Telegram:
"Did you ever hear of a place called
Nanuimo? It is on the Island of Vancouver
and 75 miles from Victoria. If you live in
what you consider un enterprising city and
believe that your local daily paper ia first-
class, write to the publisher of The Dailv
Telegram, Nanaimo, British Columbia, and
ask for a sample copy of his paper, and when
you obtain it compare it with your home
production. Go down and talk with i he
publisher about it afterwards, and ask him
why it iB that he can't print as good a paper,
or obtain as good a local patronage, or have
his paper as free from dead-head or objectionable advertisements? A useful lesson
may be learned from Nanaimo."

Dying Penniless in Golden Streets.
George Augustus 8 tin, the eminent London journalist, Bays of its stuci.il DontrAsta:
"I abide by tin* assertion ihat men and
women die nightly in ou: j.**l leu Streets,
beoause they have no lir��-.* 1 to put into T h it
miserable mouths, no roofs to shelte*.* their
wretched heads. It is no less a Uud known,
man-neglected f*ict, that in auy state of
society iu which such things cau he, there
muat be something essentially bad and
rotten."
Monkeys Cannot Untie Knots.
The monkey's intelligence has never been
able to arrive at a point which enables the
animal to achieve the untying of a knot.
You may see a monkey with a cord fastened
with the simplest form of common knot, and
unless the beast oan break the striug or
gnaw in two be will never get loose. To
untie a knot requires observation aud teuton-
ing power, and though a monkey may
possets both, he has neither iu a sufficient
degree to enable him to overcome the difficulty.

Lassiter, a farmer of Green Couutry.

A South Sea Island Bluebeard.
The Sydney Morning Herald gives aa
account of a nine months' cruiue on her
Majesty's ship Rapid among the South
Pacific islands. The High Commissioner,
Sir J. B. Thurston, landed at each place,
and having called tho ohiefs or traders
together, appointed romeone to represent
her Majesty. At. one \iinct a native w*.s deported to a distant island ou account of having made himself obnoxious to tho inhabitants by his frequent mat Wages, each marriage being followed by 'ho killing of the
new wit'o. The plan of thia bluebeard waa
to put a cocoauut on the head of his wife,
and after the style of William Tell, to attempt to bore a hole in it with a rifle bullet.
Hut his aim waa aadly defective, and "the
accident," aa he called it, resulted in a
funeral. Thia youug man had diapatohed
seven wives up to the time the Rapid
appeared.
New Evening Dress for Gentlemen.
An attempt is to be made in the United
Statea to replace the solemn formality of
our present evening dress with the fashionable attiro of th> last century���silk velvet

The ooatume waa worn at a banquet, given
by the Merchant Tailors' National Ex.'huDge
in Pittsburg, Penn., laat week and waa regarded by those who saw it with enthusias-
tio admiration. Suoh a ohange of style
might be welcomed by graceful, vigorous
and well-formed meu, but how would it
become the apiudle-shanked, pot bellied
Adonises who are often worthy members of
the community and are fired with a laudable
Booial ambition? Old pictures do Dot usually
ahow us thia phase of the life of other days,
but it would De found a stern reality in OasS

SUNDAY. MARCH 4. 1894.
MR.   GLADSTONES   RETIREMENT.
It is stated in a dispatch from London
that Mr. Gladstone on Friday evening,
dnring a personal audience with the Queen,
told Her Majesty of his intention to retire
from office. The formal act of resignation
was, however, to be delayed till after the
meeting of the Council, which was to be
held yesterday, at which all the ministers
were expected to attend, and the prorogation of Parliament to be enacted. The
Daily Chronicle Bays that the Queen offered
a peerage to Mr. Gladstone, which he declined. It further states that Lord Rosebery has received a formal summons to
Windsor. There seems to be no doubt that
Lord Rosebery will he appointed Premier in
succession to Mr. Gladstone. Libouchere's
opposition will not ho sufficient to prevent
it. The Daily Chronicle, a leading Liberal
organ, which is almost as influential as the
Daily News, says that Mr. Labouchere has
alienated the confidence of every man who
has a steady conception of Liberalism, and
that he is doing his party an eminent disservice. The only wonder is that any Liberal, who claims to possess common sense,
oould have had any confidence in Mr.
Labouchere, which it wao possible at this
late dste to withdrew from him. Mr.
Labouchere has long ago proved himself to
be an impudent and amusing blatherskite,
at whose sallies men laugh, but whom no
wise man heeds His hatred of the order in
which he was born is simply grotesque; it
has no element of respectability about it,
and has its origin no doubt in personal pique
because he thinks the aristocracy negleoted
him, and left him to push his own way,
which he has managed to do very successfully by help of hie paper Truth. The
Times welcomes the prospect of Lord Rose-
bery's succession, saying that no other member of the Government is equally trusted.
It, however, predicts friction between him
and Sir William Vernon Harcourt, if tbe
latter consents to serve under him. ThiB
may, perhaps, create Borne difficulty for the
new Premier, as well as the jealousy which
Radicals of Mr. Labouchere's stamp have
for him, chiefly because he is an earl. The
Daily Chronicle, however, says that he will
have the loyal and enthusiastic support of
the overwhelming majority of the Liberal
party.
It ia pleasant to witness the spirit in
which the announcement of Mr. Gladstone's
retirement is received by the Conservative
press in England. There ia no vulgar triumph or unworthy spirit exhibited���
nothing but sympathy for his physical in-
formities, and regret that he should be compelled to resign his high office by such a
cause. The Standard, the leading Conservative organ, says that such a farewell as
Mr. Gladstone ie bidding appeals with
singular force to general sympathy. It
further says: "One of the greatest and
most interesting figures of the century is
passing* away from public life. His opponents with unfeigned oordiality wish him the
peaceful c* j "yn.nnt of   honorable   repose."
Of course t li ..  M'gnagM  i way   implies
approval of Mi 0 * lattice's pnlltioal c mrse
of lute yemH. II ����� nl lie judged and we
think condemned by history for that. It ia
enly an expression of personal sympathy
with an aged statesman who is forced by
old age and its infirmities to retire from
publio life, and does equal honor to Mr.
Gladstone and his polical opponents���honor
in fact to our common humanity.
The attitude of the Irish leaders in the
crisis is winning praise from the Britiah
Liberals. The Chronicle pronounces it to
be strictly proper and scrupulous. It says
that "they have declined the urgent solid
tations of the leaders of an abortive revolt,
but at the same time they have given every
body to understand that their support will
depend on the attitude of the new leader,
whoever he may be." It must be admitted
that this course ot oonduct is honorable in
the Irish leadera, and will be still more so if
firmly persevered in, notwithstanding the
efforts of Mr. Labouchere and his Radical
friends to create a "cave ' in the Liberal
party to which malcontents may retire.
But at the aame time it cannot be doubted
that Mr. Gladstone's retirement, even if it
should only prove to be temporary, as his
friends hope, gravely endangers the chances
of Home Rule proving a winning card at the
next general election, whioh is now not far
o*.
MR. KEITH'S LATEST.
On Friday last Mr. Keith moved that no
wines, spirits, beer, porter or other fermented or intoxicating beverage shall be brought,
supplied, or sold in or about the building!
where the Legislative Assembly holds its
sittings, or in any premises adjoining the
same or in its immediate vicinity. The
motion was very generally opposed on the
ground that such a rule was not necessary,
the Speaker having complete oontrot of such
matters, and that moreover it was a reflection on the ability of the members to control
themselves. It was thoupht by moro than
one prominent member of the House that if
a lunch room was to be maintained the
members should be allowed to have a glass
of beer with their food if they wished.
There was no pretence made on either
side of the House that the
facility with which drink may at
present be prooured in the Parliament
buildings is abused by any of the members,
though there was some chafing on both sides
that perhaps the intemperate language used
in the House during the debate, or more
properly the wrangle, over the estimates,
was in some cases due to the use of something stronger than oold water. A somewhat lengthened debate took place. A
motion for its adjournment by Mr. Cotton
was resisted by H n. Mr. Davie on the
ground that to adjourn the debate would
only be to play into the hands of at least
one member, whose evident intention it was
to carry out a system of slandering the
members on the Government side of the
House. The debate, therefore, proceeded
and was participated in by several members
on both sides without developing
anything of special interest or importance
Indeed, it may be fairly questioned that
zeal for real temperance, apart from slander
and evil speaking on the one hand, and a
desire to conciliate the temperance vote for
the supporters of the motion on the other,
had anything at all to do with the introduction of the resolution, which was finally rejected on a vote of 17 noes to 14 ayes. It
is a pity that a question of moral reform
Bhould in thia way be degraded by politicians endeavoring to make a party use of it.
That this was the real motive of the mover
in the present case is evident from the fact
that do oomplaint has been publicly made of
common and systematic abuse of the privilege, now enjoyed by the members, of being
able to get wine or ale if they want it in the
Parliament buildings or close at hand. The
affair seems to have its origin in a spirit of
ceuBoriousness aud phariseeism, and deserves
to be regarded with contempt by intelligent
people.

The Radicals in England, who are nearly as ill-conditioned as the Opposition in
this Province, are said to be savage over
Mr. Gladstone's intended retirement and
Lord Rosebery's proposed promotion to the
premiership. It is all, they s��y, a plot of
the court to hurry the old man off the stage
and to place Rosebery at the head of the
party at a time when the dangers encircling
it render it docile. T ley accordingly threaten to smash the Rosebery Ministry at once
if he succeed in forming one. These angry
radicals are very unreasonable, as angry and
dissapointed people often are. Do they
think that the cataract on Mr. Gladstone's
eye and his loss of hearing are due to a
oourt plot, or that Mr. Gladstones has not
right on hiB side in refusing to sacrifice his
Bight for the good of the party, after losing
his hearing? The unreasonableness of the
Radicals, and general want of patriotism
and common sense, are only equalled by
their selfishness as u purl,}, aud their apparent total stupidity. Some moderate men
express the fear that Mr. Gladstone's with
drawal means the break up of his pwty.

The Green Bank  Failure���What the Assignee's Say���Rangers Defeated.
Victoria, Maroh 3.���[Special]���The assignees of the defunct bank of Green, Wor-
lock k Co. held their preliminary meeting
to-day, devoting aeveral hours to blocking
out their method of procedure. They hope
to present a complete list of the bank's
debtor and creditors by the middle of next
week, and all the staff clerks are now busy
balancing the books of customers. One of
the assignees said this evening that the
failure was immediately precipitator! by the
dishonoring of one the bank's drafts by
Wells, Fargo k Co., but for which, it was
all but certain they could have tided over
the crisis created by heavy withdrawals
during the week. Manager Worlock had
not dreamed of closing till the evening
previous to suspension. It is now found the
assets are for the greater part in the form of
overdrafts, immediate collection of whioh
will mean a collapse of more than one buaineaa firm apparently riding upon the top-
moat wave of commeroial stability. Many
of these overdrafts have been garnishee!]
already, and others will fare similarly. The
greatest losa ia, however, among small
tradesmen, artisans, etc., with whom the
bank was a prime favorite on acoount of it
allowing 1 per cent more on deposits than
chartered banks. The general expectation
of depositors is, that between sixty and
seventy per oent. only, will be realized out
of the wreck.

BRAZILIAN BUSINESS.
Moraes is Favorite for President With
the Insurgents.
(Copyright 1894 by the United Psess.)
Rio Janeiro, Feb. 27. via Monteviedeo,
March 3.���The agent for Charles R. Flint k
Co., of New York, left Bahia on February
22nd, and arrived here yesterday. He says
that the government fleet at Bahia consists
of eight vessels. The government fears to
bring this fleet to Rio Janeiro lest the
Brazilian crews go over to the Insurgents.
The foreigners in the crews, however, are
determined to fight and would turn on any
Brazilian's wbo might try to revolt.
Mr. Blunt, the agent, expects that
the fleet will come to Rio, the
day after the election. The dynamite
cruiaer, Nictheroy he saya was brought here
on February 26th, to take a few experimental shots at the insurgent forts, Ville-
gaignon, and Cobras, but President Peixoto
changed his mind at the last moment. The
experiments made with the Nictheroy at
Bahia were very successful. Mr. Burt saw
nothing of the Aquidaban or Republiea
ooming down, and believes that both vessels
have gone to Desterro. Admiral DaGama
told the United Press correspondent yesterday that the insurgents wonld accept
Moraes, as President, although the election
would be illegal because martial law would
be enforced until the very end of this month.
If Moraes suoceeds, he will order a
new election of congressmen. The
insurgents now admit that they lost all
hands, 26 men, aboard the ateamer Venus
by the explosion of her magazine last week.
The Venus sank in shallow water off Agenho
Island. Both her oannon were saved and
mounted on other vessels. The erroneous
report that the explosion occurred aboard
the steamer Meroury was seut out, but waa
aoon proved falae. The government hoi
completed the cordon of troops along the
bay ahore. A few sailors were encountered
at Mage, but they fled after losing three
killed and several wounded.
POLITICAL LIFE IN THE STATES.
A  Reverend   Politician  Shoots   Three
Men���Two Dead, One Wounded.
Memphis, Tenn., Maroh 3.���The most
sensational tragedy in the history of Mississippi ocourred at Kusciosko, the county
seat of Atalla oounty. S. A. Jackson, member of the state legislature and one of the
most prominent Democratic politicians in
the state, was shot and instantly killed;
and Samuel Russell and Wm. Sanders, two
innocent bystanders, were fatally wounded,
by the Rev. W. P. Ratcliffe, alao a member
of the legislature, and one of the leaders of
the Populist party in Mississippi. The
tragedy was the oulmination of a political
feud of long standing, whioh was brought to
a climax by a bitter newspaper controveray.
Ratcliffe published an editorial in his paper,
the Vindicator, reflecting on Jackson s vote
in tbe recent contest in the legislature over
the eleotion of a successor to United States
Senator Walthalt. Jackson replied in
a oard in another paper, in which
he denounced Ratcliffe as a liar.
The two men met at the court house in
Kusciosko to-day for the first time since
the publication of Jaokson's article. There
was .i liirg- ciowd on hand attending a
banki upt. aale by the sheriff. No one noticed
the meeting >*f the two men until they began
scuflliiig in the court house doorway. Both
Ratcliffe and Jackson pulled their revolvers
and beguu a tumble duel to the death.
When the smoke of liat'le cleared away,
JaokBon was found with a bullet hole iu his
forehead, while his right arm near the
shoulder was shattured by a glauciug shot
aimed at his head. A few feet away lay
Samuel RuBsell and William Sanders, two
by-Btanders, with mortal wounds. RuBsell
was shot through the head and expired in a
few minutes. Sanders was shot in the thigh
and is expected to die before the morning.
Ratcliffe discharged every chamber of his
revolver and finding that he had no more
ammunition, he cooly stood and watched
the writhing of his victims until the Sheriff
arrested him, and took him to jail. The
Rev. W. P. Ratcliffe waa the populist
nominee against John S. Williams,demoorat
of Yasoo oity, at the eleotion in 1892, but
he did not carry a single oounty in the distriot. The following ia the article that appeared in ths Vindtc.at.or, Mr. Ratcliffe s
paper: "Mr. Jackaon says we misrepresented him when we said lie voted for Col.
Nugent in the oaucus, if it is any gratification to Mr. Jaokson, we will say he voted
for Mr. Nugent in the joint convention. Re
may have voted for him in the caucus,
nobody knows, for that was by aeoret ballot-
What we said about the incident was in a
spirit of levity, but Mr. Jaokson seema to
make someting else out of it. We will now
give him the opportunity to emphazie that
be has the distinction of being the only
Democrat who voted for a populist for
United States Senate. We reiterate every
statement made in our lost week's article
save that it all happened in joint couven
tion whioh fact only  places him  in a moat
ridiculous attitude. If there is any con-
consolation in this correction to Mr. Jackaon, he is welcome to it, but If net he should
think that it is subject to comment we wil
now call the previous question on the whol
ooncern.

KASLO!!
KOOTENAY LAKE, B.C.
IS COMING TU THE FRONT WITH A BOOND
It is the center of the Silver-Lead Mining Industry of the famous Slocan Region, which is now-
sending $75,000 worth of Ore to Kaslo per week for shipment to the American smelters.
Mining men from all parts of the world say that it is the richest silver district known. The progress of development work in the mines verifies this statement.
Thousands of men will be employed in these mines. The natural base of supplies is Kaslo, which
is admirably adapted for the purpose, being a beautiful townsite, situated on a bay possessing excellent
shipping advantages.
The right of way for the Kaslo-Slocan Railway has been cleared, and the bridge foundations
have been put in place, so that the work of grading and track-laying may proceed at the earliest possible moment after the snow disappears.
The growth of Kaslo last year was very considerable. It is now an incorporated town, having a
population of 2,000 people. That this population will be doubled before the end of the present year is
unquestioned.
Kaslo offers to investors a most promising field. The opening up of the mines tributary to it
must- build up Kaslo. The development of these mines is now in progress. Many others will be worked as soon as easily accessible.   An investment in a Kaslo lot will pay you handsomely.

Loss estimated at ��100 000. with small insurance. The only fire protection is a small hand engine, with a volunteer brigade, the water having to be taken from the biy. The Customs OfHces,
Byers' Hardware Store, and all the principal business establishments of the town were located on

ABOUT LEATHER.
Fancy leathers Inelnde tbe Skins at Hookey t, finakes, Fluh, Birds, Etc
Very few people have any idea of the
number of different animals that contribute theirBkins for the adornment of pocket-
books, purses, etc., and make up the larye
number of odds and ends which people find
so useful. Following are some items on the
subject from The Trunk and Leather Re-
vii\v:
Monkeys, pljjs, goats, snakes, lizards, alligators, sheep, calves, fish, seals and even
birds all contribute. The one thing of importance in leather for fancy leather goods
is the grain, which influences the price to a
very great extent. The number and variety of grains are large, and tbe different
leathers are classified wheu received according to the size of the grain under those
several headings���fish, morocco, grosgruin,
levant, turkey, monkey, pig aud seal.
These grains are all different sizes, the
monkey being the largest, although the
pig noil seal are very pronounced.
The fish grain is the smallest of all. Besides these leathers there are a great many
Imitations made.
The most expensive leather sells from
$100 to $110 per dozen skins. This is the
genuine Russian leather, which has of lute
temporarily lost popularity. It is in gos-
grain. Levant goatskin sells for $60 fl dozen
skins. Seal sells for SSiO to $":0 a dofien, nnd
pigskins are sold by the skins at $(1.50 to i-7
each. Monkey skins are cheaper, selling nt
$3 per skin, but these latter are very Imicl
to procure at any price. They are made up
by only one or two manufacturers that we
know of in America into the very finest
grade of leather novelties of the imported
skins. With the exception of the sealskins,
which aro tanned in England, nearly all
these skins are tanned in Germany, although sheepskins are tanned in France.
A very Ingenious imitation of Russian
leather has been made of rovl-faltin^ perfumed with oil of birch.
Lizard skins come largely from Borneo
as well aa Germany.
The Hottest Spot on Earth.   *, ���
The hottest region on the earth's surface
Is on the southwestern coast of Persia, on
the border of the Persian gulf, judging by
the following from au exchanger
"For 40 consecutive duys in the months
of July and August the mercury luis
been known to stand above K'O degrees in
the shade night and day, mid to run up
as high as ISO degrees in the middle of the
afternoon. At Bahrein, in the center of the
most torrid part of this most torrid belt, its
though it were nature's intention to make
the place as unbearable as possible, water
from wells is something unknown. Great
Bhafts have been sunk to a depth of 100,200,
300 and even 500 feet, but always with thu
same result, no water. This serious draw-
hack notwithstanding, a comparatively
numerous population contrives to live
there, thanks to copious springs which
burst fortli from the bottom of the gulf
more than a mile from tho shore.
"The water from these springs is obtained in a most curious and novel manner. 'Macbadores,' whose sole occupation
is thnt of furnishing the people of Bahrein
with the life giving fluid, repair to that
portion of the gulf where the springs are
situated and bring away with them hu:i
dreds of skin bags full of the water each
day. The water of the gulf where the
springs burst forth is nearly 200 feet deep,
but these 'machadores' (divers) hiajiagc
to fill their goatskin sacks by diving to the
bottom and holding the mouths of the
bags over the fountain jets; this, too, without allowing the salt water of the gulf to
mix with it. The source of these subma- |
rine fountains is thought to be in the hills
of Osmond, 400 or 500 miles away. Being
situated at the bottom of the gulf, it is a
mystery how they were ever discovered,
but the fact remains that t hey have been
known since the dawn of history."
' A Haw Theory of Bleep.
Some discussion has been going on
concerning Herr Rosenbaum's recently
proposed theory of sleep���namely, that
the anaemic condition of the bfrain is duo
to an excess of water in the brain cells
of that body. The supposition, as stated,
is that sleep is essentially a matter of
nervous action, and the direct cause is
thought to be fatigue of the nerve cells
which communicate with the heart mid
bring about gome change in the circulation. The nerve cells are thus supposed
to be full of water when sleep comes on,
and this water during sleep p.-isnus into
the venous blood as waste, and the nerve
cells then receive nourishment from
fresh arterial blood. Then when the process is entirely over tho sleeper awakes.
According to this theory, sleep is not
solely healthy because it rests the body
and brain, but also because it invigorates them. It is also to be inferred
from Rosenbaum's theory that tho nerve
cells and brains of infants who sleep so
much must contain more water than is
to be found in those of adults, and that
the effectiveness of brain cells is in inverse ratio to the water contents.���New
York Tribune.
Odd Insurance.
There is in existence a legitimate
"graveyard" company. It is a company
operating entirely among the very poor
and insures a man against pauper burial.
The agents of the company put it in less
disagreeable terms and offer simply to
guarantee decent burial.
The company engages to furnish a
grave in a cemetery and see* that the insured is respectfully interred therein.
If any member of his family dies before
him, he is given a deed to a lot in which
he may bury his dead.
Some of the large companies issue a
policy covering losses from defective
title, defalcations by partner, agent or
other employee for which a firm may be
liable, damage by storm, losses caused
by accident to or by steam boilers, engines, lifts, steam pipes, automatic sprinklers or other specified machinery, including all kinds of machinery in use.���

A Brief Epitaph.
A facetious story is told of a pauper who,
having died in a workhouse, was to be
buried in the most economical fashion. The
master proposed to inscribe over hia tombstone:

The guardians at tho next meeting of the
board forbade such a profligate expenditure of the rates and ordered the epitaph to
be curtailed thus:

I and Birds Court Sooiety.
Bees and birds court the society of man-
that is, they seek tho locality where fields
and gardens abound, for they fare better
wheu human industry extorts from the soil
the products upou which they subsist.
A Maine bee culturlst says it is the rarest
thiug in the world to find bees away from
the settlements or from openings where
flowers grow. It Is in the small patches of
forest they are ofteuest found and generally
not far from the edge of the woods. It is
the same with birds. There are no soug
birds in thu northern Maine wilderness and
scarcely anything that can be called bird
life. Birds cluster around towns and vil

Rats Are Great Travelers.
Rats do not, as one would suppose, remain on the ship, but get off at various
ports, and after remaining a while ship
on some other vessel for another voyage.
The water rats or wharf rats are great
travelers and make frequent voyages
around the lakes and even around
the world���the latter as I discovered
while engaged in West India service.
There are here now rats from almost
every part of the globe. Why, I saw
four colossal Jamaica rats, with their
white bellies, skipping about in tue inuuti-
light a few weeks ago, and only yesterday I killed two Indian ui.'ile rats not
800 feet from where we were tending.
Rats are great climbers when they
find it necessary to be bo. Upon one of
my voyages uot long ago we had a long
spell of warm weather, and there was
no water in the hold which the small
army of rats on board could get at. Or '
night we put sjmio water up at the cro.s**i
trees and waited for the result. Well,
the rats just swarmed up the ratlines
aud went for tho water. We killed as
many of them as we could as they came
down, and some of them jumped overboard and were drowned. But we could
not kill them aU, and a few made the
entire voyage with us.���Interview in

To Stop a Trolley Car Instantly.
A Rochester man has devised a plan
by which a trolley street car can be
stopped almost instantaneously, or within a space of three feet, while the car is
going at full speed. His device is operated by a lover in the motorman's cab.
It is, generally speaking, a steel shoe,
upon which the rear wheels of the car
ride, the under side of which is corrugated so as to produce great friction
upon the rails of the track. On the top
of the shoe is an arrangement which, as
soon as the wheel rises upon the shoe,
clamps the outer rim of the wheel and
at the same time grasps the inner edge
of the rail. The simplo weight of the car
crowds down the shoe upon the rail and
at the same time clamps together, as in
a vise, the wheel and the rail, and all
this by a single movement on the part of
the motorman.���New York Telegram.
Simple Words the Best.
The following little story is told of a
citizen of Port Chester, N. Y., whose education was somewhat superior to his
wife's, a fact regarding which she was
very sensitive.
On one occasion the man drove over to
White Plains to inquire regarding the
health of his sister-in-law, who was dangerously ill. Upon returning ha was
met by his wife, wbo asked ot her sister's condition.
"She is convalescent," replied the man.
Immediately and in the most emphatic
manner the woman oried out: "I want
none of your soothing words. I want
facts. You tell me thia minute, Ie my
sister dead or alive?"���New York Herald.
The Fanner Was Forgetful.
The Berwick man who took several
thousand dollars from the bank, put it
in his vest pocket, and then lost the garment was convinced that the banks are
yet the best places to keep money. He
thought some tramp had stolen the vest,
but when later he found vest and money
in a grain "box where he had foolishly
laid it he became more thau ever convinced of the security which the Maine
banks afford.���Augusta (Me.) Journal.
