Telegraph or Telephone.
The people of Golden and Its violnlty
as well ss residents along the route
from the C. P. R. to Fort Steels and
other sections of southern East Kootenay, are urging the construction of a
telegraph or telephone line.and an effort
is to be made to induce the Dominion
Government to send out an engineer to
go over tbe ground and report upon ths
feasibility of the scheme. It is likewise the intention to ask the Federal
and Provincial Governments to undertake the construction and maintenance
of the projected enterprise. Our belief
is that, while we are thoroughly in accord with the system of opening up
and developing the province in every
way possible, roads and good ones at
that are much more to be desired than
telegraphs aud telephones, Tnat these
are highly necessary concomitants to
the prosperity and development of any
section of the country is s well-known
fact; but as private enterprise generally constructs and operates these it
would be establishing a dangerous
precedent fur any government to undertake such a work. Build good roads
and population will flow in their train,
snd then, when business justifies it,
will come such enterprises as we are
now discussing.���Vancouver World,

It is suggested that on January 1st,
1900, a new division of the yesr Into
thirteen months bs instituted. It is
claimed that tbis is not so preposterous as most people would bs likely to
cansider it at first thought. If suoh a
division were' made the first twelve
months would have just twenty-sight
days or four weeks each, and the thirteenth month twenty-nine, to make
365, and thirty ia leap years. After a
few days there would bs uo need to
refer to calendars, as the same day of
the week would have tbs asms date
through the year. 'If January 1st
were, sav Monday, every Monday
wovld be tbe 1st, .th, 15th and 22to;
every Tuesday the 2nd, 9th, 16th and
23rd, and so throughout tbe year.
The changes of tha moon would be on
about the same dates through the
year, and many calculations of like
interest, dates of maturing notes,
Easter Sunday and many other important dates would be simplified.
Although the present generation
would have to figure new dates for
birthdays and all legal holidays except New Year would be on different
dates, yet the gain would be more than
the loss, as that would be permanent
and the objections trifling.
The proposed change certainly has
the merit of novelty, and it la just to
say that ths srguments in favour of
tbs metric system on the ground of
utility apply with considerable force
in ths present esse. We fear, however,
thst the objections on ths grounds of
sentiment, which are strong in tbs
matter of weights snd measures,
would be svsn stronger against the
prosposed revision of our methods of
computing tiros.���Scientific American.

Mm efa Diigraoefel Trial.
|i -London, Jan.8.��� Lady Selina Scott,
tried for libelling her son in-law, Earl
Russell, was sentenced tbis morning
to eight months in prison.
Lady Selina Scott was sentenced
this morning to eight months imprisonment with'hard labot. Cooker'on
and Avlott, also pleaded guilty yesterday and receiaed similar sentences today. Lady Scott accompanied by her
daughter, the Countess Russell, entered the court room at an early hour.
They were both stylishly dressed In
black, snd pending the opening of the
court, walked up and down tbe corridor, the daughter having one of ber
arms around her mother's waist. Both
ladies were painfully nervous and Lady
Soott was heard to remark: "I do not
dread going to prison ; but I feel the
injustice of the way I hsve bsen treated."
When Countess Russell heard the
sentence pronounced, she shrieked, and
her mother, Lady Soott, shouted:
" There is not one word of truth In It."
Then addressing her daughter, apparently, she cried, " You said it was impossible to get justice." Thereupon
Justice Hawkins exclaimed : I will not
allow yon to thus address mc." The
court officials promptly removed Lady
Scott, who waa taken to Wotmwood
Scrubbs prison this afternoon. Cooker-
ton and Aylott, who are two common
looking men, stood stolidly in the
prisoner's dock throughout ths'proceedings. Esrl Russell, who occupied
a seat among the counsel beamed
throughout, evidently deriving considerable satisfaction from the result of
the triul. Owing to ill-health, Lady
Scott will bs accorded in prison the
privileges of a first class misdemeanant.
Later-Contrary to first announcement Lady Scott was taken to Hollo-
way jail instead of Wormwood Scrubbs
prison, where she will occupy the cell
which ths Duchess of Sutherland had,
who spent six weeks in prison for contempt of court.

Revelstoke Mail: One of the strangest and most Interesting ceremonies
ever witnessed anywhere was the
Chinese Masonic funeral of Mark Sing
at Revelstoke on Tuesday. The deceased was a distinguished Mason, had
been wealthy once but died poor. The
obsequies were conducted by the Grand
Lodge of Victoria, the long delay in
holding tbe body being required to consult the central authority, which shipped in all the regalia and paraphernalia
used in the ceremonies.
On Tuesday afternoon the funeral
rites began with a lari-e gathering of
Chinamen arrayed in most extravagant
and fantastic costumes. Some were in
white, some in black, others again in
purple; but the many were in red and
yellow vests, with a disc inscribed
with characters hack and front.
The coffined body was reverently
brought onr from the tent where it
had lain for abo.it a week and placed
under a small awning. At tbe foot
was a man reading aloud from a book
and burning paper: Opposite the foot
of the coffin were three tables filled
with food of all sorts, and all around
were various colored banners bearing
some strange devices. The men in
white began calling out in a loud
voice for the body, if alive, to come
forth. No answer being given they
conoluded he was dead, and in batches
of twos and threes made their obesieuce
to tbs spirit of the departed. The food
represented the mourners' gifts of good
will to their deceased brother's spirit,
and when at the grave side food,
clothes and otlier articles were burned;
the idea was the same-quieting the
ghost , of the dead man, who would
come back to trouble them if not
The whole company of Chinese present made their obesieuce before the
body, snd during the whole service the
Cbinesemusicians kept np their peculiar
music to frighten away the evil spirits
whioh it was well calculated to do.
At about 2:30 p.m. the funeral procession formed up, and . headed by a
rider on horseback (scout) with a
riderless horse led next (representing
the empty place of the leader) and
with three bands at various intervals,
s move was made for the cemetery. It
presented a brilliant and unique spectacle, and one that will not readily he
forgotten by the spectators. Oue or
two noticeable characters in the procession were the beam of a huge
square flag, representing a general,
snd s man (Jim Hing) dressed in a
diamond pattern robe'of fluttering
yellow and wearing a false beard, who
represented the Emperor, or prophet,
snd gives tha deceased's spirit liberty
to go to the Flowery Kingdom.
Four men in long black hats and
black robes represented, with others
carrying gnus, a guard of honor, and
two in purple, bearing lanterns, were
as aidss to light deceased over the dark
river. Tbe great majority, however,
those attired in colored vests nnd carrying many-shaped flags and grotesque figures sud emblems, represented
soldiers, and a semi-military idea pervaded ths entire proceedings, Iieing
osrried out in conformity with the
Chinsss Mssonic ritual.
It was a most extravagant and brilliant affair throughout, and must
hsvs coat a good deal of money. If
such are the obsequies over Mark Sing,
what must those of some big tybee lie
like, when the bauds aud the banners
would be many limes multiplied? As
nearly as could be counted eighty
Chinamen took part in the funeral.
Became Imbncd With the Idea That
He JVbs the Victim of all Kind, of
Oppreaalarn���Had lieen In Poor
Frederick Mellish, a yonng man in
his  twenty-fifth year, a printer by
trade, oommitted suicide yesterday in
a room at Daniel Cowle's house, 49
Sumaoh street, where he had engaged
lodgings on Wednesday.   On Tuesday
he came down from Brantford and
spent that night at 447 Marlon street,
Parkdale, where one of two brothers
in this oily lives.   Yesterday forenoon
he went out but returned to hia room
before noon.     At seven o'clock in the
evening, no sound having been heard
meantime, his door was forced, and
his body, oold and stiff, was found on
the bed, a ballet hole In his right temple and a revolver iu his right hand.
The polios at  once  notified Coroner
Greig. A letter in the handwriting of
the dead man stated tbat all bis friends
had deceived him, and that he was
tired and disgnsted with life and determined to end it.   He requested that
his landlady be paid for her trouble
and tbat his body be cremated.  In addition to this letter there were three
pooketbooks, each containing considerable money, the first having a wad of
$53, the second   1125  and   the third
���265, or a total of $443, besides which
there were a gold sovereign, 50 cents
and a few coppers, a gold watch and
chain, two or three gold rings and
other trinkets aud a number of photographs.
Mellish was removed lo Ingram's
undertaking establishment, on Queen
street east.
Mellish was one of the best known
aud most popular priliter in Brantford.
He learhed his trade in the Expositor
and a few years ,ngo went to New York
where he was employed as a printer.
He worked very hard an I came home
some few weeks ago iu rather bad
health and spirits as the result of over
work. His mind was somewhat enfeebled for the past few weeks and he
imagined himself tho victim of all
kinds of oppression and abuse. He
thought that his liest friends had tak
en the most compute mensurea to accomplish his death. Uis mental con
dition became so bad that steps were
being taken to have him placed iu au
asylum. Melli-h hnd uo troubles of
any kind and fiuiiucitilly waa rather
well off for a man iu his position.
The body will be taken to Brautford
for interment.

Those who have attended the performances at the Academy of Musis
tbis week, wiil readily concede that
Miss Zelma Rawlaton is one of the
brightest soubrettes ou the stage. She
is a olever musician and a oharming
singer, snd as an impersonator shows
s talent couSiderikbly above the average.   She hss winning ways, a mischievous twinkle in her eye, and a captivating mannor.   Her magnetism for
drawing large audiences IS not alone
confined to the stage, as she is possess-
ud of a character which is pleasing to
come in contract with.   It is full of
good nature, amiable qualities, and a
charm that endears her  to all  those
who have been so fortunate as to have
made ber acquaintance.    A Telegraph
representative had the pleasure of an
interview with Miss Rawlston  whioh
resulted iu a biographical sketch of her
life being publishcit in these columns
on Saturda*.    During tliu course of
the interview, Mins R.twlstou let out a
secret, winch she consented to alluw
the Teh-graph tu  muke public.      For
many years she had tie. oted  the  Let
part of her time to study, sometimes
practising at the piano alone for 10
hours n day.   It is not  therefore as-
touisbiug, ihat unuei* 11 strain 01 this
kind, she l*v:.n to feel the effects upon
her nerrous constitution.    Sue is of a
robust build,  and apparently strong
physi.-n-i, aud stood th**)strain witbo.t
interrupting her studies, niii.il she had
perfe-ted that which aim lii-sir-al to r.c-j
oomplish.    Like iiiu'lly 'other artists
who haa;.) gone boforo, she completed
her work, graduated witrr the, highest
honors, and prepared tu enter upou her
stage career.     The mm-iu'oii of over
study, and long hours, aoc i iiegnn to
tell upon her, and although it did not
interfere with her climbing the ladder
cf fame as an actress, she uery soon
became cognisant of the fact that shr
was'suffering from  a  strain  on the
nerves  whioh  tbrexteiibl  sooner  or
later to result seriously to her health.
Iier sufferings did not iuierfere with
her engagements,  but  pravrnrel her
from participating iu pleasure of any
kind.   The uervousuess increased to
such an extent thut she became a victim to insoinuia, ami slowly her di-
gt%tive powers gave out, and she was
fast becoming a chronic sufferer from
nervous debility.   After trying many
reiuediea aud prescript iuus, she one dny
read an advertisement in one of the
daily papers referring to the complete
recovery of a similar iras- as her own,
with the aid of Dr.   Williams' Pink
Pills,   She had tried so many  patent
remedies tliut she alm-ist despaire.1 uf

Treaty of Arbitration Between Great Britain
And 'ihe Un��t*4 States.
Washington, Jan, 11.���Secretary
Olney, in behalf of the United States
and Julian Pauncefote, on the part of
Great Britain, affixed their signatures
to a new treaty by which, for a term
of five years, the two English-speaking
nations agree to abide in peace and
without a resort to arms, all possible
questions of controversy being referred
to a court of arbitration, with the
single exception that neither nation
surrenders its honor or dignity to the
judgment of arbitration. Later in the
day, presjdent Cleveland sent the following message transmitting the general arbitration treaty to the senate:
" I transmit herewith a treaty for the
arbitration of all matters in difference
between the United States and Great
Britain. Thc provision of the treaty
are the result of long and patient deliberation and represent concessions made
by each party for the sake of agreement upou the general scheme. Though
the result reached may not meet the
views of the advocates of immediate
unlimited and irrevocable arbitration
of all international controversies, it is
nevertheless, confidently believed that
the treaty cannot, fail to be everywhere
recognized as making a long step in the
right direction and as embodying a
practical working plan by which disputes between the two countries will
reach a peaceful adjustment as a matter of course and in ordinary, routine.
To the initiation of sncb an important
movement. It must be expected that
some of its features will assume a ten
tative character, looking to a further
advance; and yet it is apparent that
the trenty which has been formulated
not only makes war between the parties to it a remote possibility, but precludes those fears and rumors of war
which of themselves too often assume
the proportion: of a national disaster.
It is eminently fitting as well as fortunate that the attempt to accomplish
results so beneflcient should be initiated
by kindred peoples, speaking the same
tongue, and joined together by all the
ties of common traditions, common
institutions, and common aspirations.
The experiment of substituting civilised methods tor brute force as the means
of settling international questions of
right will thus be tried under the
happiest auspices. Its success ought
not to be doubtful, and the fact that
Hs ultimate ensuing benefits are not
likely to be limited to the two countries
immediately concerned, . should cause
it to be promoted all the more eagerly.
The example set, and the lesson furnished by the successful operation of
this treaty are sure to be felt and taken
to heart, sooner or later, by other nations, and will thus mark the beginning of a new epoch in civilisation.
Profoundly Impressed as I am, therefore, by the promise of transcedent
good whioh this treaty affords, I do
not hesitate to accompany its trans*
mission with an expression of my
earnest hope that it may commend itself to the favorable consideration of
the senate.

with the greatest care, the purpose being to make the terms so comprehensive that no question oau arise in the
ordinary dealings between tha two
govei-ments which will oause a resort
to war. The article whioh makes an
exception in the oase of an insult to
national honor also was so carefully
framed that ordinary questions which
to some extent involve a nation's honor could not be brought within it. In
short, the terms ef the twelve articles
are believed br Mr. Olney and Sir Julian to cover every usual contingency
by which a difference could arise between the United States and Great
Britain. Throughout the negotiations

ambassadors wss to make the language ao broad that when a controversy

" Know all Men by These Presents. "
That I,  GEO. D. MCDERMOT,  Merchant   of the ojty
Oenenl Phillips aad Officers ef tbo Rigor
Coast "Perce Slaia by Datives.
London. Jan. 11. The foreign offlcs
has received private confirmation of
the news from Bonny on tbe Guinea
coast, telling of the massacre of Consul Phillips and his companions while
on a peaceful mission to Benin City.
The news has created a great sensation
as the victims are all well known.
Lord Salisbury came to the foreign
office especially to receive the earliest
official details and to consider them.
It is stated in ths foreign office advices
that the party was unarmed when it
left the consulate at Benin, on the
west side of the Niger, travelling toward the Adamago country.,' They
were surprised on the frontier territory
at Benin City, where they, .were fired
upon, surrounded and massacred. The
object of the mission is not yet known.
Benin City is within the Niger protectorate and is sixty miles up the
river Benin. The population is 50,000
and is governed by a fetish priesthood,
who is notorious for human sacrifices.
It is thought that the massacre is
probably connected with the recent escape of the king of the Okrika trilie to
New Calabar, who was captured by
the Brisish. It is feared the disaster
will have-a bad effeot on the Niger
company's expedition which is about
to proceed against the Emir of  Nnpe.
Lohdon, Jan. 13.-The Daily News
says the government has ordered that
an expedition be formed to punish the
murderers of the Benin expedition.
The punishing expedition, which will
bs prepared at' Old Calabar will be
made up of men from the forces of the
Niger Coast Protectorate aud a contingent of sailors from the British
West African Squadron. Officers stationed on the Niger coast, and who are
now In England on leave sf absence,
have been ordered to he ready to sail
for their posts by Saturday.
