Civil  Servant  Took    Honeymoon    Trip
To Cover Departure.
Ottawa. Aug. 14.���A sad cane of marital Infidelity has Jusl come to light. A
few weeks ago tho local press chronicled tho marriage of Robert H. Rogers,
interpreter to lhe Interior Department,
to Miss Seraphic Mnvaut. an estimable
young lady of this city. The couple set
out on a honeymoon trip In Kngland.
France and Germany. Passage was tnk*
en for I.,lverpoo!, and Paris was reached
In duo time. The couple put up at n
hotel, and four pleasant dnys wore
spent In the French metropolis. On Ihe
morning of the fifth, Rogers, with Ihe
expreBBcd purpose of Interviewing Mr.
Rothschild on business went out alone.
Tills was Iho last Mrs. Rogers saw of
her husband and she found herself pen-
nlloBB and alone In the great city. Shu

Mr. Fabre, and he advanced her passage
to Ottawa and supplied her with sufficient funds to meet current expenses.
Tbe return Journey was made safely,
and a few days ago she arrived In Ottawa. Rogers, the perpetrator of the outrage, was well known In the city, being
employed in the Immigration Branch of
the Interior Department as chief Inspector for about two years. He alao acted
in the same capacity In police court
cases on numerous occasions. He was
a master of several languages and a
man of pleasing address and suave
manners. Very little was known of his
past, but he claimed to have received
his education in Austria and to have belonged to a good family. Enquiry at
the Immigration Office elicited the Information that he has resigned his position In that department. Since his departure it haa become known that he
was considerably embarrassed financially, and this was probably one ot the
motives for his giving up a good position and getting away from Ottawa.
Since the morning he left her in Paris,
Mrs. Rogers has had no trace of her

All Is Well
Recent   Rich   Strike   in   Foster   Mine���
Public Confidence  Unaffected
by Markets.
Cobalt, Aug. 14.���The recent find on
the Foster mine appears to be exceedingly rich In silver. The company had
samples of the metal assayed and the
report of the assay er says that one
specimen submitted, which was dark,
steel gray, and lustrous in color, was
stromcylte. the normal composition of
which Is deduced by Dana Is sulphur
15.8 per cent.; silver, S3.1 per cent, and
copper, 31.1 per cent. This ts the second occurrence of this mineral reported
In Canada, the other being at the Silver
King mine. Toad -Mountain, West Kootenay. B. C. Another specimen analyxd
was argyropyrlte, a sulphide of somewhat uncertain composition, commonly
holding 25 to 30 per cent, of stiver and
35 to 40 per cent of Iron, often with adventitious copper. Thla metal la bronze
yellow In color. The essayist says that
with the stromeyrlte and argyropyrlte
waa associated seme native silver, the
gangue being a grayish- white quarts.
The samples were submitted by Mr.
W. H. Fisher, of the Foster Mining Company. Some excellent ore is being taken out of the mine In tbe course of development, and thla is being sacked for
shipment. The returns from the last
sar of ore sent out totalled" ��28.760. The
company has about 76 men at work.
The mining market took a bad turn
yesterday in sympathy with general decline In stocks in New York. For
Niplsslng $f, HT Vi, was bid and 17 was
asked. Foster and Trethewey were
also down. Taking Into consideration
the general slump, the transactions In
mining shares In Toronto were remarkably few. Tbe public is retaining Its
confidence in Cobalt. That the decline
has a foreign cause is shown by the fact
that the Niplsslng mine is now shipping
out more ore than ever before.

The reply that In developing her

Again, if Sir Wilfrid is siucerc in regarding the constitutional objection as
insuperable, surely that is not to be the
last word, lie haa rejected the proposal
of the Imperial ministers. Has he none
to make in return? Or is his refusal ou
behalf of Canada to be considered "iiual
and unalterable"? He certainly owes
the country a defence of the position to
which he has, for the present, committed it, a position of which British Canadians are heartily ashamed.

Sir Wilfrid Laurler on his return irura
England found his govemmi nl dlsor-
Bunlzed. his part) divided and the country generally expectant Two Important
positions in iin* cabinet are vacant, an I
others are belt) by man who bava outlived their usefulness u administrators.
The few capable mon in the cabinet are
overworked with the affairs ut two *l*
iiartmeiiis. There are man; asplrantl
for the vacancies, who have nm ���
to he summoned, but have gone to d eel
the premier, and later accompanied liiiu
to Ottawa, for the purpose <>l soliciting
appointment. Ii cannot be .-md thai nny
of the aspirants are men of exo pUonal

ley. nun** baa had any sdmlnlstratlvi
experience, ami none ol those obvloual]
available would iul<l any Strength to th,
government, or aid to rehabilitate it In
public opinion.
Under the circumstances Sir Wilfrid
may easily he pardoned for takini*; n
long look before he commits lilinsell
to any appointment He probably ap*
predates as thoroughly as any e* * thi
fad that his cabinet has declined seriously in ability and respectability sine*
18H0, and that tho country looks to ninl
to restore It. It cannot be thai the Liberal party Is so utterly deficient in men
of ability that the choice of soma ol bli
latest colleagues was breed on bim.
If he appoints more of the same kind
the suspicion will be continued thai he
Is not looking for abllliy or honesty.
but for subserviency and "usefoinsssV
to the party Machine.
Hut while delay In reorganising tin
cabinet may be Justified on grounds of
prudence and    party   expedii n<*>,  even
though   It   threatens   the   ellieieney   i I   -he
administration, there is no good reason
that can be advanced for Sir Wilfrid's
Inaction in another direction.
At  the   various  receptions   accorded
him since his return from Europe he
has told with many evidences of emotion huw glad he Is to get back to Canada, how much he loves it, and how-
proud he is of the confidence reposed
in him, and how much he would like
tu have it so reposed once more. Of
his mission tu London he has said little.
The nearest he has come to a statement
on the stand he took at the imperial
Confer* nee. is the repetition of his
meaningless expressiun, ���imperial unity
with local autonomy." There has beeu
uu defence, not even by mere statement, ol his attitude of blank negation
nil,ch foiled every effort at progress
made by the representatives of the
younger   colonies.
Sir Wilfrid was fond of meeting every
new auggestlon which seemed to him to
I*, iioiug too far" towards strengthening the ti.* of Kmpire, that the question
hud nut been considered and lhat he*
had nu authority from the parliament
of I'anada to commit the liouiinioii to
any undertaking, it might have occurred, probably did occur to many, that
II all the delegates were to take similar views the conferences must be for-
ever futile. None of the delegates
e.uld have had plenary Instructions on
ali ib,* issues that might be raised at
.-*ucU a conference, and no other colonial premier could be any safer than Sir
Wilfrid Laurler In declaring what he be-
lives to be lhe views of the majority of
nis 1,1 low -country men.
Hut. If he declined to commit Canada
to any forward step, his actions havu
ini'loubtedly had the effect of committing her to a retusal which has certainly never been authorized by the Canadian parliament or people. He haa represented Canadians, not only to the
lir.tish ministers and people but to the
representatives of all the sister colonics,
as unwilling to contribute anything to
ihe* cost of maintaining the royal navy,
the first arm of the defensive forces of
the Empire.
Ills logical defence of his attitude is
that Canada, being a self-governing nation, its parliament cannot vote money
beyond Its own control, into channels
from which a detailed account of Ita expenditure cannot be given to the people's representatives In parliament. The
reasoning Ib weak even If it were honest. Parliament does, as a matter of
fart, vole very considerable sums be-
\ond its own control. Kvery grant In
aid of any kind Is so voted. If Sir Wll-
The despatches from London reporting the final disposal of the Canadian
provincial subsidies bill, were neither
very full nor very clear. The following
article frum the Mail and Empire contains an explanation:
"Sir Wilfrid Laurier's attempt to
make the Canadian constitution rigid
in the matter of providing for the participation by the provinces in the accumulated revenues of the Dominion has
not been successful. From his bill fur
the amendment of the British Nunh
America Act the Imperial Government
struck out the words "final aud unalterable," which had ben inserted to bar the
provinces' right of petition for increased subsidies. The Colonial Secretary was led to obliterate these words
by the representations of Hon. Richard
McBnde, Premier of British Columbia,
who deemed tbe present appurtionment
of Dominion funds to be peculiarly inequitable to his province.
"Lord Elgin and Mr. Winston Churchill were impressed by the cogency of
Mr. McBride's reasoning and the House
uf Commons passed the bill in the form
tu which they had accordingly altered
it. Mr. Fielding's objections were heard
but the British Ministers could not see
any force in them . When Sir Wilfrid
Laurier returned from the continent to
London he lost no lime in letting the
Imperial Government know his high will
un the matter, and appears to have
shown his displeasure at the presumption of the Colonial Office and the
House In varying from the letter of his
dictated measure. The bill was then
before the Lords, and to humor the uf-
fended great man the Colonial Secretary attached as a schedule to the bill
the address of the Dominion Parlia
ment. In this address occur ihe words,
"final and unalterable." With this post-
cript the bill was passed by the House
of Lords, sent back to the House of
Commons and there readopted. The
change may be pleasing to the Canadian Government and It cannot make any
difference to the Imperial Government,
for It is the latter and not the former
that has carried its point. The schedule
Is there for anyone who cares to read It,
but the intent of parliament is contained in the body of the act, wherein
can be found not a word to discourage
any Canadian province from petitioning for a rearrangement of the Dominion grants nor to restrain any Canadian
Gavernment from acting on such petition. The schedule is Sir Wilfrid Laurier's part of the act, and the body of
the measure is  Mr.   McBride's.
"British Columbia's premier ts to be
congratulated on this outcome of the
reference to the imperial authorities.
In London he was the sole advocate of
the provinces' liberty of petition, and he
had against him the influence of the
Dominion Government, actively exerted
by Sir Wilfrid Lauri - and Mr. Fielding. But their cause was too weak to
prevail with a British Government, having regard to the people's rights and
having respect for common sense. No
British Parliament will take away any
lundamental right of a British people,
and no British Parliament can limit the
action of any future British Parliament,
and ll would he preposterous to suppose
lhat one would make even a pretence
of doing so at the bidding of Sir Wilfrid

The lateHt m��mber of a reigning family tu embru.ee a religious life U the
Prince of Loewensteln-Werthelm, who
lues ju: t gune Into u monaatery. He la
well known through his long activity In
opposition to duelling. He la now 74,
and when one conBltlers how powerful
an attraction monastic life haa had for
his family it does not appear surprising
that be took the step. His only sister
aud two of his daughtera took up conventual life long ago. His sister, Princess Adelbold Loeensteln, Is the widow
of the Infante Miguel, once a pretender
to tbe throne of Portugal. His sou, the
Duke of Uragauza, has just announced
that he will also make a claim to the
throne of tbat disturbed country.
Among other religious members of
reigning families is Prince Max of Saxony, brother of the signing king .who
is professor of canonical law and liturgy at the University of Freiburg.
With the exception of those named only
side branches of the reigning families
are to be found In religious life. The
conslstorlal counsel of the Cathedral of
St. Stephen in Vienna Ib Count Arnold
zur Lippe, a cousin of the reigning
branch of that dynasty. Among the
members of tbe famous although politically unimportant family of Uchten-
Htein In Vienna who have gone Into the
church are Prince George, who as Father Ildeson has become a member of
tbe llenedlctine Order at Prague, and
Princess Henrlette Lichensteln, who.
under the name of Adelgudls, has gone
into the Henedictlne convent at Sml-
chow In Bohemia.
Among the so-called mediatized families there are many more examples .although they are all Catholics. One may
search in vain for a Protestant dignitary who has gone Into the religious
life. Prince Frederic de Croy, who was
not long ago a very lively young officer of the guards at PotBdam, is now
a priest in the service of the Pope Two
members of the Hohenlohe���Schllllngs-
fuerst family have recently become
priests. One, Prince Philip, who formerly held a high political post, Is now
a llenedlctine father, and Prince Karl
Klgon, who Is harely out of his teens,
bus become a secular priest in the dio-

have to be moved around, and the corrections  cannot  always   be   trusted.
Again, the shock due to the firing of
big guns Is bad for the compass. Dr.
li. Anscvhutz-Kampfe has invented a
new form of Bteerlng standard, dependent for Its operation upon the principle of the gyroscope.
This apparatus has been subjected to
exhaustive tests on a battleship, where
amid the Sling of great guns, the movement of the turrets and such other disturbing influences as would effectually
have disposed of the ordinary compass.
It behaved with remarkable precision
and came out of the trials quite uninjured. The apparatus consists essentially of an electrically operated gyroscope carrying an indicating needle and
pivoted within an arc similar to that of
the ordinary compass.
The Instrument does not necessarily
point north and south, but It tends continually to point In any direction In
which it is set, and thus to indicate any
change of direction of the ship. It Is
not proposed to displace the mariner's
compass by means of this instrument,
for Its readings would tend to become
Inaccurate after long periods of use
without resetting by some standard. It
will serve as a useful supplement to the
Mad Dog Scare.
Stillwater. Minn., Aug. 14.���The mad
dog scare nl this city is at Its height.
Yesterday a valuable hunting dog
owned by Herbert T. McCusIck was
destroyed owing to its having been bitten last week by a dog afflicted by rabies. The young woman bitten last week
by her pet collie went to the Pasteur
Institute, Chicago, and Ib still taking
the treatment. ,
Back to His Cave.
St. Paul, Aug. 14.���A special to the
Pioneer PresB Bays: "Charles Fischer,
recluse and quaint character, has returned to St. Paul after an absence ot
seven years. For a long time Fischer
lived the life of a hermit In a ravine
near this city. Fischer's abode was half
hut and half cave, a curious hovel he
had built for himself under an overhanging bank. Unlike the ordinary hermits he did not shun society nor hold
himself from visitors.

Bostonians'   Engagement.
Edmonton has recently been favored
with a series of good plays, but if the

all previous records should be surpassed. Perhaps the most popular

most humorous, wns a much detested
but neceRsary person, the sheriff's officer Its representative, "Babe" Mason,
kepi her audience In a constant roar
of laughter whenever he made his ap-
pearanee. The peculiar grimaces and
gestures employed by this youngster
were molt astonishing, but they certainly added greatly to the grotesquenCHs of
his part���Bulletin, Edmonton. The Bob
lonlans open their engagement at the
opera house tomorrow evening.
