HALIFAX  LAND  DEAL.
Minister  of   Railways   Suppresses   Im
portant Papers,
Ottawa, Feb. 5���The mlnlBter of rail
ways has brought down a part of the
papers referring to tho purchase of
land for the Intercolonial round honso
at Halifax. The return purports to be
complete, but an examination of the
papers shows that four or five Important communications, Including one
from the s.tling member for Halifax to
the general manager of the railway,
have been withheld. It is shown by
these papers ihai In 190:i the chief engineer, the ongineer of construction,
and other technical officers decided upon a Bite for this round house. ThiB location was abandoned because, as the
general manager states, certain busi
ness people in Halifax objected to It
on tho ground that a new settlement
would bo built up out of town and Ihey
would be deprived of Irade wllh the
employees of the shops and yards.
Then it was decided to build a rectangular engine house at Richmond,
and plans were prepared on this under
standing. Henry C. Head was ongaged
to value the properties and submitted
In report. Thla waB In 1906. Later, this
llocatlon was also abandoned in favor of
In slnte near the Halifax Cotton Factory. This change was recommended
from Ottawu and again Mr. Read was
sent to value the property.
Though the deputy minister suggested that the intention of the depart*
ment should be kept quiet until Mr-
Macllrelth, logal agent of the government, should ncquire the properties, It
was found that before the valuator arrived Joseph II. Henderson hnd Purchased from all the other owners bu
two the land which the government
needed. The government paid nim
$45,400 for his newly-acquired lam .
and that which he previously owned,
leaving him, it Is said, n profit of u>"
per cent, on his purchases and options.
There Ib nothing, however, In the pa-
pers to show the middleman's prom,
for though one of the officers of the department suggested an examination n
the records to see what transfers linn
been made and at what price, the coi-
respondence lndleateB that such Inves
ligation  wns carefully   avoided,     rue
government paid the $46,400 without
hesitation, and afterward continued
from Mny, 1001!, to January, 1907, dickering with Ihe owner of oue property
over a matter of $800, and with another over a still smaller buiii. These, two
were the only ones who had not trans
ffrred thetr properties to Mr. Henderson before the government made the
purchase. There Is matter for the public accounts committee In this transaction.
8TIRRING  SCENES   IN   REICHSTAG.
Von Buelow Makes Ringing Speech on
Result of Ballot.
Berlin, Feb. 26.���The government has
���won a definite victory lu tho general
elections for a new reichBtag. The
Liberal, Radical and Conservative parties supporting Prince Von Buelow's colonial policy have won at least 20 Beats.
But more Important for the government than the success of its colonial
plans ls the crushing defeat of the Socialists, who will lose a total of 17 or
IS seats.
This Ib the first election Blnce 1887
ihat the Socialists have not increased
their representation In the reichstag
by from five to twenty seats. They
have lost especially in several largo
cities, among them Breslau, Halle,
Magdeburg, Leipzig and Koenlgsherg.
The clerical centre holds nearly every
one of its former 100 seatB. There la
n possibility, however, that reballotlngs
in the undecided districts may lose
that party one or moro seats. Tbe Conservatives have won six seats, two of
them from the Socialists. Reballoling
will be necessary in 175 constituencies.
Certain districts lu Upper Bavaria
that are Bnowhound have not yet been
heard from, but they are considered
safe for the party. When It became
evident thai the governmenl won Immense crowds sl reamed from the
neighborhood of the newspaper offlees
toward the palace of Chancellor Von
Buelow. They masses! In front of the
building and sang "Hell Dlr Im Sieger-
kranz" ('Hall to Thee With the Crown
of Victory"!.
Prince Von Buelow appeared and
Bald: "Gentlemen, 1 thank you for your
homage, and 1 am especially delighted
that your national feeling brought you
here. My predticeBSor in office (Bis-
marck), before whom we all mi|f|t Respectfully bow, said 40 years ago: 'Put
the German people In the saddle and lt
wl|l ride soon enough.' The German
people haB shown today thut it can ride.
1 believe aud hope that every one will
do hla duty also in ihe reballoling.
Then will Germany stand respected and
mighty before the world. Let us then
unite togetlwi' In the cry 'lAtag Live
Germany and the German Nation. Hut*
���4-ah.'"
The aasemblcd multitude burBt into
enthusiastic cheering and soon after
Bet off for the Imperial palace. Ou
reaching the castle bridge pver the
Spree a strong body of police opposed
It and forced It back with some violence. The people (hen formed In line
asaln and marched down Unter den
Linden to the palace of the crown
prince, Frederick William, where Ihey
SBng and cheered. The crown princess appeared upon n balcony of tho
palace and bowed repeatedly. Tho
crowd  then quietly  dispersed.
Never before has Berlin known such
after-election enthusiasm or Biich
noisy demonstrations by crowds. The
emperor's picture, however, was hissed
whenever It was flashed upon a transparency In front of the office of the
Lokal Anselge'r. These hisses were
lost In thc volume of cheering. Not a
single Incident of a disorderly chsrac-
ter has been reported from any polls.
The Steel Squabble.
Toronto, Feb. 5���As time goes on It
looks more and more as If the Coal-
Steel dispute would be adjustod out of
court. Thc coming of B. B. Wood on
Ihe scene, and the conferences which
have been held hetween that gentleman
and Mflsrs. James Ross and J. R. Wilson of the Coal company certainly lead
to that conclusion. Just previous to
his leaving for Europe the other day,
Mr. Ross spoke rather hopefully of a
settlement. Some of the Steel men,
notably Senator Forgel, are putting up
a bluff of the "no compromise," but
when lt comes down to making ono
they will probably do their share with
the rest; antl It can all be done bettor
with Mr. Rosb calmly sailing through
the Mediterranean, for there Is no love
lost between this same Mr. Robs antl
Sennlor Forget. If they had chanced
to live in the old days It would have
been pistols and coffee for Iwo long ere
this.
Hla Mistake.
A young mnn was fined for kissing
a girl "In the face of her protest." If
he had kissed her where he ought sho
would not have prosecuted him. No
girl lilies to be kissed in the wrong
place!

New Haven, Conn., Feb. 5���The
Times yesterday received the following
despatch from Japan:
Toklo, Feb. B.���Viscount Hayashi directs me to refer you to the Japanese
ambassador at Washington, wbo la Instructed to give you information refuting absolutely the false rumors.
(Signed) Tbe Private Secretary of tbe
Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Th eTiraes correapondent at Washington says tbat yesterday tbe Japanese embassy reoelved tbe following

a telegram directly to the Imperial government to ascertain tbe attitude of
Japan wltb regard to San Franciaoo

(Signed!   Hayashi,

but from pther sources It saeems a
great deal has been sent to Japan and

United States,
In (his way the talk has come to the
attention pf tbe imperial   government,
and if was said at the emhaaiy yesterday (hat evidently the government re-
garded auch talk with serious -concern,
uot as being a truthful Index of the
situation, but aa indicating the possibility of a belief In tho United States
tbat Japan might really be entertain-
ing unfriendly Intentions toward the
United States.
Toklo, Feb. 5.���Tbe press up to this
afternoon continues silent anent tbe
war cry In tbe American papers. Not
the slightest excitement was apparent
bere at noon today. Alter this talk
was transmitted bere It was generally
ignored. It is believed that anti-Japanese agitation by a portion of the
American press will afford proof of the
futility of an effort to shake the profound confidence which Japan reposes
in President Roosevelt and ln tbe
American people generally.
EXCAVATING HERCULANEUM.
Italian Commission Approve* American
Scheme.
l<ondon. Feb. 5.���Professor doU'Osso
of tbe Naplea museum, In an article in
the Trlbuna on the scheme of Professor Charles Waldsteln, the American
archaeologist and antbor, for excavations at the site of Herculaneum, calls
attention to the rapid change ln public
opinion which a great, noble Idea can
produce. He points out that ln about
two years from the Ume Professor
Wad'steln'n project was proposed all
prejudices and fears for the dignity of
Italy which greeted It have disappeared
and even a commission which only a
year ago negatived the scheme haa now
voted for lt unanimously. The expense
of excavating Herculaneum Is ao great
that if Italy undertook It on Us own
account half of lt could not be completed ln 160 years. The volcanic stratum covering the city averages a depth
of 70 feet and ls of the consistency of
stone. Some duplicates among the objects found will probably be presented
to those most largely asalstln��ln the
work, but a special feature orthc excavations will be that the discoveries
will remain ln situ. The excavations
of 1828 proved that tho upper stories
of houses were In an extraordinary
state of preservation, ao a future vis
itor to Herculaneum, Instea _ ��' seeing
only the ruined skeleton oi the dty,
will find the houaea In their original
state, wllh the furniture and decorations scrupulously preserved i*�� the
most minute particulars. The statues
ln the temples, theatres and bas 'Ucas
will remain tn their places. Thus' a
visitor will be able to reconstruct f*t>r
himself in a remarkable degree the bi'-
del life and habits of one of the greet
cities of antiquity.
���POKE ON FISHERIES.
Sensible Speech In Parliament by Oeo.
E. Foster.
Mr. Maclean, Liberal member at Ottawa for Lunenburg, made a capital
speech in parliament the other day advocating the discontinuance of the privileges granted United Statea fishermen in Canadian waters. In 1886 a
treaty was agreed upon between Canada and the United States, by which
tho market of tbat country was to be
open duty free to tbe catch of our fishermen, while our fisheries were to be
open to tbelr fishermen, lt was a bar-
gain -square in its terms. Our parliament put the treaty Into effect; the
senate at Washington rejected it- Can-
ada then arranged that American flailing rights in our waters should terminate on a Btated date, lull haa extended this arrangement from time to time.
At first there was the expectation that
the other part of the agreement of 1888
would be carried out, but auy probability of that disappeared years ago. Canada ls, and bas been, giving for nothing
everything that could Influence our
neighbors to make a fair bargain. Tbey
have got all they wanted without giving anything that was asked. It would
be interesting te know why Canada bas
allowed herself lo be euohred out of
everything ahe possessed when she aat
down to dicker wltb Uncle Sam ln 1888.
It would be Interesting to know why
the Ottawa government hesitates to terminate a Bltuation ao absurd. Hon.
Mr. Brodeur replied for the ministry
tn tbe speech of the member for Lnnen*
buig, and bis speech made nobody any
wiser than before as to why this oountry should continue a generosity that
Is badly requited. But it Mr. Brodeur
threw no light on the subject, Mr. Foster did. He was tn tbe Conservative
ministry for years, and he made some
remarks on this question that brough
applause from both sides of tbe bouse.
He declared that we cannot go on giving all and getting nothing,
"While we dealre," be said, "to live
in the greatest amity and peace with
onr neighbors, while we recognlae tbat
Great Britain bears the burden of tbe
empire; that It ta a staggering burden
at times; that thc outside British pos-
sessions must realise that and a ssist
tho mother oountry In tbe burden
whioh sbe has to bear; yet, I think lt
ought to be pretty well understood In
Canada from this time forward tbat wo
have given up about all that we propose to give up unless we get the quid
pro quo of a compensation or au advantage; that our resources, great though
they are, are none too great for our
own people; that they are not great
enough to allow us to give advantages
In the way of gratuities and favors to
even our good neighbor, the United
States to the aouth ot us, and that we
have what we believe to be ours. Wc

or another, what should properly belong to this Dominion today and we do

Ing of this country from one end to the

In tbe future, even lo Insistent neighbors, and I think we must also come
to the conclusion that our neighbors
themselves will havo Just as much respect for us If they see ub fairly and
s'rongly, but at the same time reasonably. Insist upon those rights which we
have, and maintain them against all
comers."   This is sensible talk.
Crapsey Hesrd From.
New York, Feb. 6.���The ninth annual dinner of the Society of tbe Oen-
esee took place at the Waldorf-Astoria
last night with Speaker James W.
Wadsworth of the assembly as the
guest of honor. More than ordinary Interest had been aroused in the event
by the announcement that the Rev. Dr.
Algernon S. Crapsey of Rochester, recently deposed from tho Episcopal mln-
Islry, would speak on the subject,
"Some Untold Truths That the World
Should Know." Tbls was Dr. Crap-
sey's first public address following the
severance of his relations with Ihe
church. Other speakers at the dinner
were: Ex-Judge D. Cady Herrlck, James
M. Beck, former Attorney Oeneral of
the United States; Charles J. Blasell of
Rochester, and Samuel G. Blythe, pres-
ldent ot the Gridiron club of Washington.
worst snowstorm of the winter prevailed here today, a gale of 60 miles an
hour with a heavy snowtorm tying np
all traffic on land and sea. The waves
arc running high snd considerable anxiety was felt for shipping.
���UBS FOR RECOVERY.
Famous Doctor   Charges   Extravagant
Advance  Fee.
Paris, Feb. 5.���A great -sensation was
made in tbe dally press a couple of
yeara ago of the case of George Crocker, a wealthy American, wbo took his
wife to Dr. Doyen of Parle to be cured
of cancer, that -doctor having announced the dlsscovery of a sure cure. After
treatment had been begun Dr. Doyen
Informed Mr. Crocker that hia fee
would be 120,000, and unless this were
paid down he would not go on with the
case. Crocker paid the money, but pro-
tested against the Injustice and moral
violence of the demand. No cure waa
effected and Mra. Crocker died borne
months later. The husband now sues
tor the recovery of the money In the
Paris courts, and instructs bis lawyer,
if successful In recovering the sum. to
turn It over to tbe Pasteur Institute
ss a fund to assist In the search lor
a eaneer cure. Dr. Doyen's conduct ls
generally condemned as unprofessional
and lt Is expected that the -courts will
order the return ot moat of the money.

SOCIALIST -POLICY.
Tarento  Saturday Night Views Local
Polities.
At Vancouver the other night the So-
delists, who have been taking an active
part in the Brltlah Columbia provindal
election, held a meeting, says Saturday
Nlgbt, at whioh a red (lag was waved
and all parties and tbe universe In general verbally torn to pieces.
One orator aald: "Now, friends, I
don't know lt our old Union Jack haa
made you work, but It certainly baa
made me work bard, and I say that the
red flag of revolution is the only flag
for our freedom. If you plugs did not
have any votes no party would bother
you at all���not even before election."
Continuing, be aald tbat be oould not
see why "Billy" Mdnnes would leave
a 112,000 job to break Into politics be-
oause he himself would think twice before giving up one worth $1100. It
seems to be the policy of the Socialist
to "get there" himself without caring
how, or considering anybody else.
VICTIM OF CONSPIRACY.
Inquiry Into -flael    Governor's   Action
Proceeding at Toronto.
Worst of the Season.
Highland Light, Mass, Feb, 5.���The
Toronto, Feb. 5.���A private detective
named Charles Law told the story of
his secret Investigations at the Toronto
gaol before Commlaaioner Judge when
the Inquiry into the conduct ot Oover
nor Van Zant was proceeded with.
In the employ of the Canadian Detective agency, Law aald that whan gaining his Information laat May, the officials at the gaol apparently thought ho
was from the ittorney-generel's department. As a result he found that these
officials desired the governor be relieved ot his office, and one of their own
party, a Conservative, appointed ln hla
plaoe. The detective expressed tbe
opinion that there waa a conspiracy to
oust tbe governor from office. Curious
as it may seem, the detective wis
brought out as a prosecution witness,
though tt waa to the defence lawyers
he told his complete story. Besides go-
Ing to the gaol he hnd called upon the
people at Markham. A number of other
witnesses were also called.

was received laat nlgbt. There waa a
auidde pact with hla daughter, who also
affixes her name to the communication. Officers have been searching for
them for tbe past three days oo a
charge of arson. Undying love tor her

when speculation proved her father's
nemesis, $3000 being loat tbe past

Winnipeg, Feb. 6.���Following is tba
announcement of the work which tbe
C. P. H. proposes tor its western Unas .
during the season of 1M7, by William
Whyte, second vice-president of the
oompany, who returned from the conference at the head office In Montreal, 7
estimates tor which have been passed:'.
Continuation of doube track work between Winnipeg and Fort William:
-completion of Teuton branch*, completion or Pheaaant Hills branch; to connect with Wetasklwin branch; completion of Wolseley-Heston branch; com*
pletion of Weyburn-Stoughton branch;
completion of line from Moose Jaw
north 60 miles; completion of Braden*
bury to Bstorhasy branch; -completion
of Shebo extension to connect with
Preaaant Hills branch; completion of
grade reduction work at Medicine HM
aectlon; completion of grade reduction
work at Lethbrldge to Macleod, Including a bridge -une mile long and 300 (eat
high; grade reduction work between
Field aad Hector; station at Port Arthur; recreation aad lodging building
for -engineers and trainmen at Igaace;
new yard at Coleridge; completion of
hotel at Victoria, which will be opened
in Auguat; bealdes which S30 milea of
light steel will be changed to 80-pound
steal.
Large amount of ballasting, Including
-several Important branch lines which,
are to be relald with go-pound steel, a
considerable number of new sidetracks
and other betterments of a permanent
character in order to bring roadbed up
to tirat-claaa standard.
Two portions ot grade reduction
work planned are ot great importance.
Laat year plans were prepared for
grade reduction work between Lethbrldge and Macleod on the Crow's Nest
Psss route. This section ot tbe lino
runs through the foothills of the Rockies and Ib a difficult country through
which to carry a railroad. When th��
line was Brat built there were a number of trestle bridges along lt, spanning
the ravines and creeks encountered.
The traffic of this route haa Increased'
to a remarkable extent and many ot
the old bridges need renewing or
strengthening to accommodate tba
heavier trains and locomotives, in making the surveys it waa found that by
building a viaduct abont a mile ln, tha
greater number of the old treaties
would be done away with, and this Is
the work which the company is preparing to carry ont the -coming aaaaop. '
The viaduct will be constructed of steel
and -concrete. The plate girders wilt
he carried on steel towers SM feat In
height, these resting on concrete toon*
dations. In addition to cutting out thw
trestles aad a number of-heavy grades
the routes will alao be somewhat
shortened.
The -second piece of work Is tha grade *
reduction between Field and Hector.
Between these stations the oompany .
has encountered the moat difficult -section of their whole system, aad the <���*
glneers who laid out the original route .
were unable to obtain better than 4.5
per -cent grade. This moans a cHmb
of 337.4 teet ln every mile. Plans have
now been completed whereby this grade
will be reduced to 2.3 per cent., or lll.fi
feet In the mile. This reduction will
mean that the efficiency of a locomotive on this section will be more than
doubled, and will greatly leaaan ex*
penses while shortening the running
time between these two palate. Thla
reduction ls obtained by the construction of a couple ot tnaaels under tbat
-portion of the mountain which turn
forms the banter.

verdict was no snap verdict, but was
the deliberate pronouncement of a free
and independent people, who have calmly Bt tidied every phase of the provincial situation, and to whom political or
partizan sentiment does not appeal.
With the splendid endorsement of the
people the members or tlte governnn-nt
will now take up their arduous tusks,
cheered and happy in the fact that they
may go ahead with their projects. For
the Interior in particular, and in fact

Returns from the vartOUl electoral
COMtftuenclei Bre now sufficiently complete to appreciate tlie splendid victory
with which the people have recorded
their appreciation ssr (In- work of Ihe
administration <'f Premier McBride,
While no one excepting u few UlieralB
who permitted Ihemaelves to he deluded in tin* matter antlolpated the
overthrow of ihe government the til-
uniphuiit vindication mum ise nattering
to the premier nml his colleagues. In
a Sonne it was tlm government's first
appeal to the people. Tin' clrriini
Btattces have entirely changed since
Premier MoBrlde first took power At
that, time only experimental votes could
be cast. Thc then leader of thc opposition, now Premier McUride, was personally very popular, and In the logical
order of affairs was called on to form
a government. This was no easy task
nor was it made IMS difficult but
rather more by the Introduction of
party lines.
Tho administration was unstained by
lhe people, nnd (luring the almost four
yeurs uf Its strenuous legislative and
���executive work had given the people
Home Iden of Its capabilities In charging tho affairs of the oountry.
Tho government's appeal was almost
wholly on Its record. This was occasioned by tho persistent nnd malevolent attacks of the opposition. It will
ho unnoceesary to refer lo the campaign uf slander and to the subsequent
defence of Uio government through its
various executive officers. It wilt he
unnecessary for tho reason that the
peoplo whose sovereign voice has spok
en have sustained nnd vindicated the
government. It is nut the Intention of
the Conservative press to twit the opposition organs on the thunderous verdict against their clamors against the
members of the government The matter should he a dead issue now, since
lhe people have spoken, and we sincerely hope the Conservative press hns
��� unlike the opposition organs���sufficient decency to decently inter dead
issues.
The significance of this last vote of
the people Is tremendous for n variety
of reasons.    It Is the   answer   of the
people to the tradttcers of the govern-
I ment.    It Is the voice of the people to
I the government reflecting   the    sentl-
I ment, "Well done.'*   It Is an iniiniaiton
j to political charlatans that llrltlsh Co-
l liiinlilii will have none of them.    It ls
a suggestion to the judiciary that the
sphere of the judge is  removed  from
politics,    lt is an Indication io the lend-
er or the opposition that  the country
does not believe he can lead und an Intimation lo his followers that when the
blind lead the blind both fall Into the
dltcli.
It Is, moreover, an Intimation to the
world that llrltlsh Columbia Intends to
insist on Its rights to special consider
atton In the distribution of federal
grants The better terms question wus
but quietly 111 evidence and was wisely
left almost out of the campaign by both
parlies, but Its existence as a vital Issue was always manifest nnd lhe question will bo reopened, nml It will not
be closed until tho people of Mritish
Columbia receive simple justice from
the federal authorities. No unreasonable dnmnnd has beeu made. In fact,
It has been the flimsy charge of llie opposition thnt the premier made no demand, but we can safely assume thai
ihe ifulet dignity and strength of the
province on the question that will be reopened will presage Bitch pressure at
the sources of relief that In a short
time the Mclirldo government will add
laurels to Its record by the final negotiation of a serious issue.
These ond the further fact that the
government will be be able now to apply Itself energetically lo tho prosecution of the policy of development which
naturally has evolved from tlie experience of the past three years, furnish
some clue to what was meant by the
people when Ihey voted so unanimously, eo onthuslastlnilly and so cheerful-
Many   Incidents  occur in   a political
campaign that have a local Interest aad
ate of a most amusing character. Some
of these are of course unprintable, and
most uf ihem never rise to the solcmu
dignity necessary t.s recognition iu the
editorial paiies ot a party journal.  Tho
-exception   to   this   rule  was   furnished
in thu Slocan riding last week at a political  gathering.    As  is  well   known,
the opposition had been making desperate assaults upon the government candidate In that riding, and In their turn
the friends of the    member-elect  had
heen assisting in tho pleasam task of
the government's  defence.    It  so hap-
! pened   that on  one occasion  a whole
i group    of    political    candidates. -spell-
! binders  and   party   workers,   including
j the leader    of   the Liberal party, had
j gathered at  a well known hostelry In
New Denver.   The Liberal leader stood
in characteristic pose   a   little    to the
lefi of the centre of the room but was
nol  the cynosure of all eyes.    In the
company was a well known Conservative   worker,   who   carries  everywhere
with hlm a talisman or charm consist-
lug of a splendid -specimen nugget from
some rich belt iu the Slocan.   The nugget Is finely shaped, finely ornamented
with free metals, anil    weighs    about
three ounces, and is intrinsically worth
perhaps  fifty  dollars.    Selecting a Judicious moment the owner of the charm
stole up to Liberal Leader Macdonald
nnd  presentesl the charm.    Macdonald
looked wise, immediately concentrating
tlie analytical  faculties of his judicial
mind  upon  the  fragment.    In   frigidly
cynical   tones he asked'-     "And    what
might  this  be?"    Jusl  for  a  moment
Hit owner of the nugget was nonplussed  by  the apparent fact  that a resi-
d nt of a city that handles as much ore
us does Rossland should be Ignorant of
the nature of n specimen, and. taking
llie Liberal leader at his own estimate
of himself, his reply    came    like    the
whirlwind of witty    eloquence    as   he
said:  "What might that be?    That's a
filling from ono of the teeth Dick McHrlde intends to use to crack your co-
eoanut on    the second   of    February."
Tho historian  says  Macdonald  is still
critically analyzing the remark.

Washington, Feb. 0.���Dr. Harvey W.
Wiley, chief ot the chemistry bureau
of tlie department of agriculture, and
the government pure food experts
gave some interesting testimony con-
cernlng the deterioration of food stuffs
in cold storage before the house commitlee on agriculture, wnoso hearings
on the agricultural appropriations bill
have lust been made public. "Milk
and eggs begin to deteriorate right
uwny," said Dr. Wiley. "Fruit is improved and sometimes continues to Improve for three months. Meat improves up to aboul six or eight weekB,
but after three months for meat you
can see that lt has reached the maximum and It begins to go down, I don'l
care how hard it is frozen."
Dr. Wiley said tnat oysters sent out
in tin cans are all right, but declared
that bulk oysters shipped In tubs and
buckets are either preserved with Borne
preservative or are dangerously near
ihe ptomaine line. Dr. Wiley said the
gelatine factories are the dirtiest in
the world, and the hides used are
treated with alkali, which is rubbed
Into them for shipment. Tho hides
are scraped and trimmed and then put
into tanners' vats, and the residue used
for gelatine. He said that this gelatine
In sometimes used In glue factories,
and that what is not fit for glue is
made Into gelatine. As lo the uses of
this gelatine Dr. Wiley said: "it is
used for putting into Ice cream, and
putting Into candles, and for making
capsules that you take your medicine
In " He added that t here ls no objection to gelatine if properly made and
there Is plenty of raw material to make
it of. Ab to tho proportion of gelatine
made from material containing live
gerniB, Dr. Wllov said: "No one wants
to run t he risk of getting lockjaw by
taking a powder or a pill or eating ice
cream."

SEVEN TRAINS STALLED.
East and West Locked In the drip of
tho Storm.
New York, Feb. 6. ���The heavy snowstorm which struck this vicinity yesterday grew as the night went on, and
today traffic was much crippled. Railroad trains came groping into their stations, steamboats crawled across rivers
and everything ln the way of city transportation above ground was far behind
schedule time or clr-3 at a standstill.
Nearly a foot of hard dry snow and the
high wind which prevailed practically
all of yesterday and last night rendered
travel by land and water difficult and
uncomfortable, and in some cases
risky. Great trouble was experienced
iu the congested parts of Manhattan
borough and of Brooklyn, but tho outlying parts of the city and suburbs suffered most. Hundreds of New Jersey
and Dong Island commuters, rather than
than brave the storm to reach their
homes, remained in the city over night.
Havre, Mont., Feb. 5.���Winter weath-

In the drifts west of Havre seven Orl-
ental passenger trains are stalled, and
east five moro are similarly situated.
