Petition For Retention ot
New York. Oec. 28���From advices received at the *S*iarliime ESxchaoge It Is
believed tha, a shipwrecked crew is
on one of the small islands off Cape
Horn. The liritish ship Raphael, which
arrived at Montevideo on Nov. SHIth, en
route from Callao for Liverpool, reported seeing fires burning on an island far
tt. the southward of the eastern entrance lo the Straits of Magellan.
The Are,, were evidently maintained
as signals, as they were large and
burned brightly, while they could be
seen fri.ru the lluphaol. The machinery of the Raphael wus defective at the
time, and she kept her course. However. wh"'n she arrived at Montevideo
the information was telegraphed to
Punta Arenas, and a steam tender has
been sent to make a search of the islands. From the description it is believed that tin? fires were seen on Straggler's Island, which is to the southward
of Smith's channel.
Shipping men are of the opinion that
tin- castaways may be the crew or part
of the crew of the f��ur-,uusted barque
Arthur Sewall, long overdue at Seattle from 1'hlladelphln. The Sewall, one
of th,. largest Amcri.an sailing vessels,
sailed on April 3rd last, and since thnt
nothing has been heard of her. About
two months ago a sealing steamship arrived at Punta Arenas and reported
having sighted the masts of a large Bulling ship sunk to the southward of the
Horn. The Seuwall carried a crew of
ihlrty-two men.
There are two other vessels now ik>b-
I, il as missing at Lloyd's. These a,v
ths Aineiicun barque Adolf Obrlg.
which sailed from this port for San
Frut,else, on April Huh. and the Hritish
barqtH) Bllbsrbom, which sailed from
Newcnstle. N. S. W., for Pisagua, CShilt.
on March SSItl The Obrlg had a crew
of twenty mon and tha Sllberhorn had
tw nty-seven persons on hoard.
A party cast away nn one of the Islands off the Horn v aid have a hard

Business Men of Nelson Addressing
Consular Department at
The prospective withdrawal or the
American consular service rrom Nelson
is recognized as a serious biow to the
Interest of the city.
A petition was drafted this morning
and addressed to the consular department at Washington, setting forth the
extent and value of the interests aHect-
ed, boih American and Canadian, the
certainty of a steady and rapid growth
in the volume and value, and the grave
inconvenience and loss that will be suffered by the people of the interior of
Washington and British Columbia if the
proposed change is effected, and praying
that the office of consular agent at Nelson will be maintained.
The petition was circulated by F. A.
Starkey and P. G. Ebbutt, president and
.secretary of the board of trade, lt was
promptly signed on behalf of practically
every business man in Nelson, the managers of the four hanks, of the leading
hotels, of all the wholesale houses, the
leading retail houses, the two daily
papers, of mines and sawmills, and of
ail companies with headquarters In Nelson, and by all the professional men
that could be found.
A copy of the petition will be Tor-
warded to the Spokane chamU-r of commerce with a request that that body
either endorse the Nelson petition or
present another to the authorities at
Washington to the same effect.
No information Is obtainable from auy
quarter as to the reason for the action
of the American consular department.
Consular Agent W. S. RIblet has .received nothing but the bare notification that the office will cease to exist
on Jan. 1st, 1908. He approves of the
lieiiiion and thinkB that u lull explanation of the conditions and of the magnitude of the interests involved, might
lend to a reconsideration of the department's decision at least in so far as
Nelson is concerned.

Carmen Sylva's Birthday.
Queen Elizabeth of Roumanla, better
known to tbe public under her pen
name of "Carmen Sylva," was born at
Neuwicd, Germany, December 29, 1843,
the daughter of the late Prince Hermann of Wied. In her parents' home
she became acquainted with the chief
writers, poets, scholars and artists of
the day, and early showed bent for
poetical composition. The years 1S6:J
to 1868 she spent chiefly in travel. In
1869 she married Prince Charles of
Koumania. In March, 1S81, Roumanla
was declared a kingdom, and on May 22
of the same year the princess was
ci owned queen. Under the name of
Carmen Sylvia, she published several
volumes of stories and poems, with
translations of Roumanian poetry Into
German. Some of her most beautiful
and touching poems are those written
on the death of her only child in 1874.
The queen is noted for her deeds of
charity and Is greatly beloved by the
Roumanian   people.

The Received Account of the First Miracle of His  Life���Church Services   Tomorrow.
Tomorrow will bu the nrst Sunday after OtuMttnaa. Next Wedneaday will l.u
the lesiival ol ti,,, Clteumoialoa which
i�� oolo.ctd.enl with New JTear't Day,
Thu K.it*|.'.'l for ihe day is Bt Matthew', atory of the itirin of Christ. The
acount of the conception ami birth ol
Christ as received and taught by the
Church is the lirs. meat miracle recorded in tin- New Teetameot, ranking wiih
the UeKiirreciiim uiul ihe Ascension. It
is the lirat fact that differentiates Christ
from other men.
Belief in mlraouloua birth is not con-
lined to Christians. It was a familiar
concept lo the Greeks, Peraiana, Hindoos and also to Germans and  iliiluus
Il was inevitable lliat the truth of the
story should be queslioned in the days
when an elementary knowledge of the
theories of science began to be general
l.v diffused. Parthenogenesis in the human race is undoubtedly contrary to re-
OOrded human experience, but Its occurrence in the lower animal and vegetable
kiiig.loms is well known to sluilenls ol
.- < i. ! i < e.
With.mj doubt acceptance of the
t'-aehings of Christ as the rule of life
anil belief in Htm as a lMvinely inspired teacher and ��uide might survive ib��-
r. jection of the doctrine or Divine Intervention al His birth. Hut to reject
it is to deny the obvious continuity of
the Scriptures, deny a Divine plan for
the redemption of mankind, and to re
duce Ilie writings of both old and new
taatamenl to merely a remarkable���
even incredible���series of coincidences
without puriK.se or nu-anin*;. The Jew
i. h race ha.I and believed, and still have
and b.-lieve. recorded prophecies of ih.-
birth of a Messiah, specially sent by
the I Soil In whom they believed, to rescue th'-lr race and lead it to prelection.
Those who have left the accounts of
the birth, life, death, resurrection and
ascension of Christ, testify that the
prophecies were all fulfilled to the let-
ter. The manner of His birth could
only have been learned from Himsell
in after years or from Joseph and Mar*
It Is hardly credible that the disciples
and other apostles, men with at least
lhe average learning of a learned age
ami country, and with more than average Intelligence, would have accepted
without question or searching a state
men! of a fact so much beyond human
experience. Neither Is a conspiracy of
ralsehood among the writers of the gos-
IH-ls  rationally conceivable.
