Ex-Sergeant of Police a
Pleads That He Was  Irresponsible
at the Time���Agitated by Letter
of Dismissal.
The Nelson police force ls without a
sergeant. Charles G. Wheeler, the last
incumbent of the position, was suspended from office by Ills Worship Mayor
Gllett at 11.45 p. m. yesterday, and on
account of circumstances that have de.
voloped since, there is no doubt that the
suspension will be made permanent by
the hoard of police commissioners.
The mayor:s action was taken after
careful investigation of a reisart that
the sergeant had appeared in uniform
at the hall in the armory Friday night
obviously under the  Influence Of liquor.
The letter of dismissal was received
by the sergeant aboul midnight last
night, and, on his own confession, so
���ffected him that he proceeded, to drink
heavily and reduced himself to a state
of irresponsibility, so much so lhat his
inind*is still a blank as to his conduct
during the hours that  followed.
He was arrested in his bed early this
morning l.y Chief of Police Carroll on
the charge of stealing Uie cash box of
the Silver Grill restaurant.
When the case was called in the
police court this afternoon the room
was crowded with spectators, a number
of whom were witnesses. Sharp at 2
o'clock the ex-sergeant was broughl into the conri room by Policeman Kills.
The man did not appear to realize his
position. He Beemed dazed, probably
as a result of overindulgence in liquor.
His clothes were covered with dust
and he looked very little like thetastily-
lllassort Sergeant Wheeler. In answer
to the charge of having stolen fifteen
dollars from D. M. Jewell, and as lo
whether he desired to be tried l.y the
police magistrate or In case of committal to be Irled by a higher court. ex-
Sergeant Wheeler replied: 'Your
honor. I will plead guilty to any charge
that Is preferred agalnsl me, and will be
tried bv vou. I know nothing of what
look place. LaBt night I received a
letter that upset me and I went and got
drunk. 1 didn't know anything more
and I may have done what I am charged
with.    I have nothing more to say.''
Police Magistrate Crease said he
would remand Ihe prisoner until tomorrow for sentence, and the ex-sergeant was taken back to his cell in the
police station.
No   Limit   to   Be   Placed   on   Height   of

New York. Dec. 2���No limit la to be

a Skysoraper to as many stories as be
chooses, provided Ills structure is of
such form ub io guarantee a reasonable
amouni ��f Ughl snd ventilation to his

effect or an amendment to the New
York building eompnny which will be
ratified by the ooujl of revision m lis
next   meeting  and   the  entire   report   or
the committee will probably be adopted
by   lhe   hoard  of   aldermen   within  the
coming  Week. 	
Aged Emperor of Au.tria-Hungary  Ha.
Reigned 59 Years.
Vienna, Dec. 2.��� Throughout the dual
monarchy there were great rejoicings
today In celebration of the anniversary
or the accession or Emperor Francla
Joseph. The aged ruler, who waa bettered to be near death a few months
ago has aboul recovered his usual
health and has resumed   his   regular
routine   Of   arduous   work   111   behalf   of
the empire and Us people.
It was Hfty-iilnc years ago today thai
Francis Joseph was called to tho throne
In Hie tnldat of the storm nnd streak
attending the revolution of 1S48. Preparations are being made to observe Ihe
sixtieth anniversary ��r his accession
next year iu a manlier befitting the man
who, amidst extraordinary diiflcuiiies.
had don., more Ihan falls to the lot of
mosl rulern to Improve the condition of
hla subjects. An emperor who has occupied his throne for nearly three score
years nnd has for two-thirds of that
time conducted successfully an enor-
mouRly difficult political experiment, la
entitled  to be   regarded as among the
world's great men. Again and again
has hla domestic life been darkened by
unspeakable tragedies, but he has never
allowed his personal afflictions to make
him forget the necessity for attending
to public duty.
Report    of    Royal    Commission���What
Irish Agriculture Owes to Sir
Horace Plunket.
London, Dec. 2.���Tbe government
has just issued the voluminous evidence
taken before1 Ihe royal commission on
the congest ion-in Ireland, and many are
tbe gloomy and dismal phases of life
ln the Kineralfl Isle, which can be picked out of the *prges.
Rev. Thomas McAnran, a parish
priest of Kllllnaga, County Cavan, supplies one which is typical of many. He
Bays that as soon as the youth of the
country are able to provide for them
selves they fly off to America, thus
leaving the aged and young children
to look after themselves and homes,
with the result that the land Is not
tilled as n..:eh as it should be, the
children are no' sent to school and all
depend for support .in the credit given
by the local shop keeoer- waiting Tor
the American dollar.
The further result is that they become loaded with debt, and if the shop
keepers refuse them credit, there Is
nothing before them but an emigrant
ship to America or the workhouse.
Father McAnran states that anything that might be called land In En-
niskillen, a rural district, is at present
given over to grazing, the people having
been banished ln and after the famine
years to the mountains and to America. There are marks of poverty all
around. The people are half clad, lhe
children are degenerate, and the surface of the country itself is barren wilderness.
But a brighter phase of Irish life is
to be seen in many parts of Ireland,
where tbe land question is no longer a
political but an economic one. A few
years ago Danish butter took the place
of Irish butter in the markets, and the
Danish pig won in death a triumph
over his living brother and undersold
him at his own Bty door. Other countries were no less aggressive and it was
useless for the dairy farmer of Limerick or Cork to have grass so rich you
could grease your boots on It when butter, that was Its outcome, was rejected
by the  buyers.
When the darkest hour seemed to
have arrived. Sir Hodace Plunket took
the burden of his countrymen ou his
own shoulders. He found that the reasons for the Irish being thrust out of
the markets of the world were want of
joint action and want of scientific, practical knowledge. Science had been at
work In both the Danish farm and In
the French poultry yard. It was soon
understood how tile Danish pig had
routed  the  Irish   pig.
Danish farmers had co-operated, had
formed, first creameries, which gave
them a great quantity of milk for pig
feeding, and afterwards co-operated bacon factories. Again, the DaniBh government had come to their help with
technical instruction, expert advice and
material supi-ort.
Experts were sent to England nnd
other countries to reirort on the waits
of ihe markets, the yearly contribution by the state to the promotion o!
agriculture Is $540,000. The same c.oii-.-v
has been followed In France. Austria,
Holland. Ilavarla, Belgium, Hung ill'
and Switzerland.
Hut for Ireland, ihe country of ul!
others most dependent onagricultfiro,
practically nothing had been done, sir
Horace Plunket told the furores tin y
musl begin among Ihemselvcs. "Se.r
help, by mutual help." was Ills motto,
lie showed them how Important It va:,
to combine and (rust one another on
lines thai farmers In other countrl".!
had worked on.
Ho formed an agricultural organization with Boclclles In dlf.i'oii; pans
of the country where la,men were
taught to work out their own saWt'on
and mil listen to lhe political agitator.
Success has resulled. The 11n.l. of
the creamery societies la steadily increasing. In the poorer dlstrl-^iH oo op
erallve hanks have been oBtabU-ihcd
and farmers can now borrow money at
six per cent Instead of pnyi.iK SO per
cent., ns a few years ago. Mono* Is
never lent except for productive purposes.
Poultry societies have alao been
slnrted and nre proving a great hoon.
for. though hens lav as well In congested dintrlcts as elsewhere, eggs
could only be sold al a normal price to
travelling hucksters or bartered on very
had terms nl   the village shop.
In those imrts or Ireland where Ihe
people become Industrious and thrifty,
everything Is going verv well, hut In
districts like that described by Father
McAnran tie.-e neeins to be no hope.

Ity, the soil consisting of n yellow dnub.

health of rattle or to crops.
Anything that   mlgh!  be   enlled  land

Thirty Gallons Destroyed���Indians in
the Trade���Canada From
Ocean to Ocean.
Kenora. Dec, 2.���Dominion Police Officers Stevens and MacKenzle, in the
presence of the Commissioner ofPolice
Quibell destroyed another large quantity of liquor which had been seized
within the last four weeks along the
line of the Transcontinental railway in
the Rainy River district. The liquor
was of various kinds, including whiskey,
brandy, wine and beer of all descriptions, amounting in all to over thirty
gallons, and the entire lot was poured
into the town sewer. Several suggestions were made to give it to the hospitals or sell It and give the proceeds
to some charitable institutions, but
Commissioner Quibell would only do
what the law allowed him, viz: destroy
It. All sorts of devices were used to
get the liquor to the men on the works.
One five gallon keg of whiskey was
found in a barrel of apples. A long
gimlet was used to bore Into the barrel
by the officers, and upon opening it the
keg was found with apples surrounding
it. Another common loolcing box marked "crockery, with care," was found filled with beer and whiskey. Ti make
matters worse, the Indians are smuggling In the liquors, and two of them
were sentenced during the past week
by the commissioner to three months'
hard labor. In both cases they refused
to tell where they obtained the liquor.
John Joseph, an Indian, was sent to jail
for three months by Commissioner Qul-
liell for this offense.
Winnipeg, Dec. 2.���s Hous trouble
that at times threatened u'.ruption of
the Western Hockey league luced the
delegates when they met Baturday evening to definitely decide on the composition of Ihe league and to draft schedules. They sat and straggled with thi
problems Saturday night and followed
with three stormy sessions yesterday
without having definitely settled at midnight. The chief trouble arose over the
division of the gate receipts. Places
outside of Winnipeg are a unit In demanding that visiting teams be paid
twenty per cent of the gate receipts,
hut the local delegates oppose this
strenuously. The latter also want double
series, others take a contrary view. Another long discussion was precipitated
by applications of the Winnipeg! and
Maple Leafs for admission to the
league. These, along with the Strath-
conns of last year, would have made
three Winnipeg teams, hut the league
decided lhat only two of the applicants
could be admitted, and the latest addition to the professional rankB will be
decided by test games.

Formal Ceremonies In Senate and Housa
of Representatives.
Washington, Dec. 2.���The first session
of tbe sixtieth congress convened today
at 12 o'clock. Vice President Fairbanks
called the senate to order, while the
house was called by Clerk McDowell.
The opening day never develops much
of interest to those used to attending
the sessions of congress, but no other
day seems to possess greater charm
for the average citizen. Today waa not
an exception to the rule, as the corridors were not without visitors even before senators and repreBentatives had
begun to arrive, and there was a marked increase as the day advanced. The
members began to arrive early, and
there were many cordial greetings in
the corridors and on the floors.
In the house greater Interest attached
to the proceedings because a complete
organization w-as necessary. This Included tho drawing of Beats by the members.
Despite the fnct that a number of tbe
familiar faces were missing, including
the veterans Morgan and Pettua of Alabama, It was a familiar scene when
Vice President Fairbanks called the Ben-
ate to order with two strokes of the
gavel. The hum of voices ceased when
the vice president pounded and Chaplain Edward Everett Hale mude the
prayer. In the audience were the families of many senators and men in public life. There were also several members of Ihe diplomatic corpB pregeut.
At tomorrow's session lhe president's
message will be received and rend in
both houses.

too light to press hi avily on the busiest man in the country. Sometimes
citizens fail to turn out for the annual
training. Thev are invited to spend
three months in jail. If they don't
show up next year they B]>end the fol-
lt.wlnt- six months In jail. Apart from
the dlsgrac** entailed by the Imprisonment, the disgrace that neglect brings
on the head of the defaulter Is particularly bitter. The Sw.ks women simply
ostracize the men who show lack of
interest   in   the   army.
One important result of the system.
in the opinion of Col. Radcliffe, Is that
few men marry before they have finished their recurlt's course at the age
of twenty. Consequently there are fewer Improvident early-marriages. Another
effect that was probably not intended is
that when a man is rejected as unfit
for service he finds it rather difficult
to get married. Physical fitness is a
great hobby with the Swiss, and young
men will go to great lengths to fit
themselves for their military training.
ln praising the lecture and the Swiss
system. Lord  Roberts said:
"The Swiss have long since realized
that the habits of discipline which military training inculcates have made
their people better workers, better behaved, and better citizens in every respect, and they know from bitter experience that without an efficient army
they would be at the mercy of their
more powerful neighbors whenever it
suited them to cross the border. They
remember what their forefathers told
them of the terrible time they went
through when their country was Invaded in 1791.. and how the effects of that
time Were felt during many subsequent
years, and the number of valuable lives
"that were lost from neglecting to take
the most ordinary precautions: and
they are determined, so far as It Is in
their power to prevent it. that such a
terrible calamity shall never occur
again. It is impossible for uie tn say
hew earnestly I wish that our fellow-
e.uintrymen would take warning by*,
and   follow  the example of the Swiss."
He pointed out that circumstances
might arisf In which the navy could
not save the country in the absence of
it strong and disciplined force of defenders on land. If it ls possible that the
British navy could not defend the British Isles, 'it is also possible that it
might not he able to defend the somewhat   more   vulnerable   Canadian  coast.
