THE KOOTENAY STAR.
REVELSTOKE, OCT. 10.1891.
IN OCTOBER.
There are lingering  south  winds
blowing,
That to billowy waving the (ipe
grain bear;
There are dark - winged butterflies
languid!; goiug,
Flouting through golden air.
There are mists like vapor of inoense
burning,
lhat are rolling away under skies
that are fair;
There are  brown-faced sunflowers
dreamily turning,
Shaking thoir yellow hair.
There are noisy bees that are tired of
winging,
That are holding a oourt in some
wild rose's heart;
There are sudden thrills of the late
sweet singing
Of birds that are loth to depart.
There are sunsets watching their
own hot blushes
On the breast of tbe ocean burning
There are wind-swept pines in the
infinite bushes,
Whispering as they sway,
There are changing ferns in the
shadows lying,
Where the undried dews in the
noontides stay;
There   are   gorgeous hued  leaves
where rustling and sighing
Quivering sunbeums play.
There are tangled viaes in the hollows trailing;
There are short sweet days that
will not delay;
There are nights tbat oome with a
moonlight veiling,
And Autumn going away.
The Reciprocity Conference.
Tbo news from Ottawa that tho
reciprocity conference set for Oct.
12th, botween Secretary Blaine
aud representatives of tbe Canadian Government has been indefinitely postponod, is confirmed al
the State Dopurtment, Washing-
ton, The reason giveu lor the
postponement is lhat the President deems it best that the C.ina-
diaii Commissioners should deal
directly wiih Mr. Uluiue, and Mr.
Harrison therefore asked |lor a
postponement until Mr. Blaine's
return lo Washington, when u
fine for tho morning could be
arranged. The President and
Mr. Blaine are in accord upon the
general proposition that reciprocity of the kind offered by the
Conservative party of Canada is
not desirable for the United
Slates, as was stated at the time
of the visit ot yir Charles Tnpper
aud his associates in tho Cabinet.
Secretary Blaine iB in favor of
iho absorption of Canada into tbe
Union, but he believes the way to
0btain it is to pursue a waiting
policy, rather than to irritate the
.loyalists by seeming to seek it,
Ho is willing to see reciprocity
tried as a means of cementing the
union of the two sections, bat he
has always favored a reciprocity
which covers all classes of artioles,
or, at least, admits American
manufactures into Canada, rather
than the onesided reciprocity
offered by tbe Canadian Government.
Tbe   McKinley   Tariff  May
Spoil the World's Fair,
A Paris dispatch to the London
Daily News, dated Oct 5th, says
lhat tbe replies of lhe French
manufacturers to the government
circulars relative to lhe Chicago
World's Fair indicate a lapk of
enthusiasm for the enterprise.
They generally regard America's
invitation, following upon the
.McKinley tariff, as a mere
mockery. The chambers of commerce of Bordeaux, Lille and
Roubeaiix report that not a single
ioteuding exhibitor has yet applied. Lyons, St. Elienne and
Rouen have hud one applicant
each. The majority of the chambers merely note the absence of
applicants. About one hundred
Parisian manufacturers^ and
traders have announced Iheir intention to exhibit.
Anotner despatch from Rome,
ol the same date, says that Italy
has decided to take no part in tho
Chioago World's Fair.
Citi7.cn G. P. Train Again,
Somo students at Now York
had a good doal offu-i last Sun-
day evening at tho Gi'uiid Opera
House, where tho oolebralod
globe-trotter of Taeoma was lo
lecturo. Mr. Train was tendered
un ovation upon entering tbe ball
aud the ovation continuod uiilii
he left ut tho close of the meeting. Whenovor ho attempted to
apoak the applause beoamo deaf-
onitig and he iuvariably took a
seat until somo semblance of
order was restored. At liinos he
beoame profane in his remarks
about the disturbers, which only
increased their shoals of derision,
At last he gave in, and stopping;
his lecturo he called upon the
stage the six Casters who bogan a
fifty days' fast tbe next evening
in a museum, and introduced
them to the audienco, After ihis
digression he attempted to speak,
bat the merry students again interrupted him. Thon Mr. Train
brought on the stage a oolored
man who whistled several airs,
got an encore, and whistled some
more, geting a second, and gave
a song with a whistling interlude,
He was presented with a silver
dollar by Mr. Train, amid great
oheering, Once more Mr. Train
tried to continue his lecture, and
once more be was shot off by his
disturbers. Then be introduced
Mrs Eleanor Fletcher Bishop, the
mother of the dead mind reador,
wbo told, how her son had been
murdered by three doctors, and
spoke of her vain efiorts to obtain
justice. Mr. Train then called
for volunteers, and several young
men who had not, the best ear lor
music, aud no voice to speak, excited the laughter and oat-calls
ot the gang by iheir woeful
breaks.  No arrests.

A Suicide's Funeral.
Tho funoral of the late General
Boulaugcr, whioh took plaoo ot
Brussels lueb Saturday, was witnessed by fully 10,000 people,
High prions .vcro easily obtained
for places Irom which tho pro-
oession could bo advantageously
witnessed. The crowds rooeuiu-
led nothing so much as tbo
throngs which gathored in Paris
when thero was to be a guillo.iu-

joking freely about tbe career of
the dead General. The only
cormony was by Paul Deroiir
ledes, who talcing up a tri-color,
put Iho fl.ii- tn his lips and placed
it on the coffin, at the same time

Drowning of Dixon the
liopewalker,
Samuel J. Dixon, the well-known
photographer of Toronto, whose
studio at the corner of King and
Yonge streets has for many years
past been noted for exoellent work,
and wbo receutly crossed the gorge
below Niagara Falls on a wire rope,
was drowned last Saturday afternoon
in Wood Lake, near Gravenhursl,
Muskoka, Ontario, through taking
cramp while swimming across the
lake, wbioh ia a mile wide. He had
got within a hundred yards of the
shore when a boy observed him
struggle, and put out in a boat, but
he sunk before the boy reached tho
spot. The body was recovered the
. next day,
A Singular Fatality.
A sad and very peculiar accident happened last woek in a
remote locality on the old Barlow
road across the Cascades, near
Portland, Oro. A yoqng man
named Bronson, son of a moon-
tainoer, was out huntiug grouse,
and shot ono in the top of a small
forked tree. The bird lodged in
tbe branches and the boy climbed
up one of the forks to got it,
When about twenty feet from tho
ground be had to pass across a
space from one fork to the othor,
and attempted to walk over on a
dry limb, which broke under his
weight, and he fell between the
trees, going down feet first. He
fe|l about sixMeet, and his head
caught between tho forks, breaking his neck and suspending him
there until he was iound soveral

The Exodus from Dakota.
With all the bright reports of
tho fine crops in Dakota this year
the farmers evidently are not iu
love with the country. Evory
train from the south brings set-
tiers and their effects lo settle in
Mnnitobu. Friday night four
oars of settlers and tboir effects
arrived in the city and left on
Saturday for the west, where land
has been providod for them. On
Tuesday seven moro cars will
ardvo and nine on Thursday.
One oi the sights in the C.P. R.
yards on Tuesday was the cars of
stock belonging to the  Dakota
settlors who arrived during the
day. Eaoh car carried a bannor
about threo feet wide the entire
length of tbe car, wiih tho following mottoes in large capitals :���
" We're bouud for Now Dakota."
'! 30 bushels whoat por acre."
1170 bushels oats por aero."
" Hay, wood and water abundant."
11 No blizzards, no hail, no
drought."
"Good-bye ten yours of hard
labor."
"Good-bye old Dakota."
"God bless our new homo."
The party visited tho Winnipeg
exhibition, and a portion wont
wost the same night, whilst the
remaindor stayed over night to

A  Queer  Mode of Self-
Defense.
Oddest of all defensive methods
is that ot snapping off lhe tail.
I'he blind worm, or slow worm,
is a litlle suake-like lizard common in the Old World. When
alarmed il contracts its muscles
iu such m-niner and degree as to
break its tail off at a considerable
distance Irom the end. But how
can ihis aid it? The detached
tail thou dances about very lively, holding the attention of tho
offender, while lhe lizard himseil
slinks away. And for a considerable time the tail retains ils
capability of twisting and jump,
ing every time it is struck. The
lizard will then grow another
tail, so as to bo prepared for
another adventure. Thero aro
other lizards which havo a similar
power, though in less degree.
Canada lacks only 237.000
square miles to be as large as the
whole oontinont of Europe. It
is noarly thirty times as large as
Great Britain and Ireland, aud is
500,000 square miles larger than

The Chinese Lepers.
It is stated that the two Chinese
lepers reoeutly shipped in bond from
New York to Vancouver to bo seut
from there to China, and who were
sent back by the city of Vancouver,
have been stopped at Swift Current,
N.W.T., and returned to Vancouver,
on tho ground thut tbey were shipped
in bond, and tbat tbe bond was
brokun unwarrantably by tho Canadian authorities, Tbe Mayor of
Vancouver will not permit them to
be brought into the city, aud has
had them placed under guard out

I cannot approve of the compla-
oenoy of tho Admiralty in granting
permission to tho German Naval At-
taoho and to a con-do of French
nival offloers to visit Chatham Dockyard and make an inspection of all
tho vessels and workshops. It is
the olimax of folly and absurdity to
waste large Bums on experiments,
and in purchasing new inventions,
and then to allow foreign exports
to visit the Dook-yards, and note
everything they see which is worth
reporting. It would be a very Jong

A   NEW   FFATUIIIJ. OF
ANNFaXATION.
The problem ot the future relations
between Ounndn and the United States
is being solved in a strange but oer-
tnin nud eonohisivo .nun..or.    Dakota
is being rapidly depopulated; farmers
and farm laborers, with their wives
and tamilios, nro gathering up their
portable olTocls uud aro creating considerable truflio on tho nilwaysi'iin
ping northward from that distriot,
Some of these farmers ore doludod
Canadians who wore inclnood by interested parties some ten yours or so
ago to emigrate to tho Dakotas, at
that time desoribod  by thoso who
were "in the know" an '-.i laud o'er-
flowing wiih milk nnd houoy.''   kl.e.
time has laid that bald-lioaded delu-
biou by tbo heels.    Thero is littlo
milk nnd less honey in either of the
Dnkotae.     So say those who have
given tbo country u ten years' trial,
iu.il uow thoy are coming homo ngnin,
older, sadder, wieor.J aucj pQoror in
health and pocket,   Hut it is "never
too lato to mend," and most of them
believe that two or thrive such bountiful harvests as that which Manitoba
has just gnmored will set them on
their logs, and wipe out the remembrance of the trials and tribulations
thoy endured on the storilo soil of
Dakota,  where   the  very  elements
seemed to unite to drive them out and
up to the laud from whoiico they
came.
But the great majority of those
who are now finding a homo north of
the 49Ui parallel are undoubtedly
genuine American farmers, who would
pot be Americans did tbey not bring
their Republican instincts and a lovo
of their own form of government with
tbem. Should the present exodus
from Dakota continue-and if Manitoba can harvest such another magnificent crop next year it will continue
���it will not take ninny years to fill
the Canaelian North-west with an
imported population whose affections
will loyally cling to tbo flag ot their
forefathers, the stars and stripes,
lioiug located in communities, this
sentiment will tako deep root auel
spread until it has permeated the
whole North-west; and should the
time ever come for tho question of
iinuoxntion to be placed before the
country their united vote would
swamp tbe loyalists, and those who
are now halting between two opinions
would, as is always tbe case, decide
in favor of tbe stronger party, lint
with our vast territory, capable uf
sustaining many millions more than
the present population of the Uniti d
States, would it not be a littlo humiliating to be " annexed" by a country
less iu area tbnu ourselves ? Thero
is an old saying that "it is the unexpected which happens." So it is
within the bounds of possibility thai
Panada, as she rills up with American

for thoy had paid Ilovelstoke a visit
on their way to tbe coast, and the
audieiieo knew they wore uot wasting
thoir sentiment ou unworthy or even
mediocre lalent, During tho interval ooiiupied by tho performers in
Selecting the pieces to he rendered
aU ollieer of the lodge distributed to
each Uoud Templar present the soar-
lot budge of tbe Order, wl,ioli was
proudly donned by both sexes,
causing us, in conjunction with the
uuileeorated portion of the audienoe,
to fool just a little bit neglected and
a trifle blue. There was a sprinkling
of ladies present, both from tho old
and new towns. Mr. Williamson
opouod tbe proceeding-) with a neat
little spoeoh, and then modestly retired whilst the "Duet" gave "Laud
of Nowhoro." Wo were agreeablv
surprised, for we had not expected
such genuine talent. Mr. Smith possesses a fine deep tonod bass, while
bis confrere is a sweet-toued tenor,
butai tbo first effoit it was ovident
Mr, Wobb was suffering from slight
hoarseness. The duet ooncludod, Mr.
Williamson again stepped to tho
front, and, with a happy knack he
possesea, ouusod a broad smile to
spr ad itself over the entire audienoe.
Mr. Webb then gave "Tho song that
reached my heart" in a sympathetic
manner. We have neglected to mention tho fair accompanist, Mrs. Leo,
who did herself great credit. Mr.
Williamson's temperance address was
to the point, and ivo hope it worked
a reformation in tho hearts of thoBe
present who "deeply quaff the rlow-
iug bowl." Mr. and Mrs. Lee then
displayed a considerable amount of
local tiilont in tho duei "Who dat
eallin' so sweet." The next piece,
"Chimney il-'lls," by Mr Smith, was
splendidly rendered, the effect being
heightened by tho alto of Mr. Webb.
Two familiar nautical songs followed, "The death of Nelson," by
Mr. Webb, and "Nancy Leo," by
Mr, Smith, and we must confess we
never hoard them better rendered,
'.fter tbe applause had subsided Mr.
and Mrs. Lee gave "Comin' home
from u]"eti^'.', The exoeediugly
difficult du-t "Excelsior," by the
"Emeralds," was a splendid success,
although the accompanist evidently
was not familiar with the music of
it. Mr. Webb thon gave "The
(irnud Parade" on the organ, and
exhil itoil brilliant execution, after
which he accompanied whilst Mr-
Smith sang "Th" Midshipmite." Tbis
song brought the first encore of the
evening, to which Mr. Smith responded by repeating the last two
verses. Mr. Lee, in "Homeless Tonight,,' carried off the only other
encore accorded. The comioul duet
" Vote of Thanks," evoked a good
deal of laughter, and we were compelled to break through onr editorial
habit and j.in in. "The Game of
Lifo," a masterly rooitalion, brought
Mr, Smith an ovalion, and then the
audience stood and helped in the
finale, "God savo the I^iioen," Tho
; concert was a great succes.
On Wednesday the Emerald Duet
gave their Bervioes on behalf of tho
fnoda -if Columbia Lodgo, I.O.O.T.,
which are considerably nuginoutod
tber by. Tho audience was very
noarlj as largo as that of tho pro-
is line; e- io |ng and the piooos givon
were of the samo high order, elicit

TH E
DEATH  Ol'  TWO  Gil...iT
IRISHMEN.
C. S. Parnell and Sir J. P.
Hennessey.
London, Oct. 7.���Oburlns Stewart
Parnell, "tho uncrowned kiug,"
died last uicrbt at half-past eleven
from a chill with which he was attacked bint week. The cloning
events in Pamell's ohoquered career
took piece at Walsiughum Terrace,
Brighton, whore he expired in the
arms of hia wife. The news of the
sad event created intense exoitemeut
not only In London, but nil over the
Unitod Kingdom. Thn newspaper
offices were thronged with auxiuu*
inquirers and the bulletin hoards
were eagerly soanued ii.y thousands
,of deeply Interested onlookers,
Pamell's death full like a bomb-
Bbellou every ono, for, though it
wan known that he was very RorioqB-
ly ill, it was not for a moui'-ut expected that his aickuees would take
ft fatal turn.
Sir Johu Pope Hennessy, K.C.M.
G., member of Parliament for the
Northern Division of Kilkenny, is
dead. Jir John has been prominently bt-fore the public of late as
the candidate iii North Kilkenny of
the anti-Pamellite wing of the Irish
party. He waB elected by a Inrge
���majority over Pamell's candidate.
(Sir John was a native of Cork, and
was born iu 1834.
During Attempted Robbery
at Nelson,
It is jnat aliout time for the polioe
otNelson to"Nab" that daring robber
who has been terrorising the town
for some weeks past. Last Saturday, between two aud three o'clock
in the morning, he made hia third
appearanoe at Nelsou���presuming it
to be the same individual who successfully held n p the station agent,
and extracted $207 and a gold watch
and chain from the pockets of Mr.
Poster. At the time stated, Mr.
Marks, proprietor of the Nelson
House, went behind his bar to pro-
fi.iro somi-thing, but did not take a
igbt, when he heard a noise as of
Bomethiug   mumbling or  whining
Irom bi hind a door which led from
the billiard room to the bar.   Thinking it was his dog, he called it by
iuiine, aud snid, "Wbats' the mut-
t. r���?"    Then he heard a nun's
yoice ordering him to "keep quiet,
or he would get his head blown off."
But instead of doing so, Mr. Marks
shouted for help.   Iu a moment two
pf his gni'Sts came into the bar-room,
anil thinking their help was required
to eject a drunken  mini, they advanced towards the robber with the
intention of collaring him prior to
landing   him   upon  the sidewalk,
But they soon discovered their mistake ae their eyes lit upon the barrel
of the weapon the robber held in his
hand.   One account states that the
gentlemen retired quite hastily, and
another that one of them threw a
chair at the robber and grazed tbe
varnish off the new  counter.  Be
this as it may, the would-be burglar,
thinking "discretion the Letter part
pf valor," retreated to the back door,
(which was not properly hung on its
binges) and darting out, escaped in
the darkneBS.    An examination of
the premises indicated that be had
gained an entrance through a window
Fn the rear of the new billiard room,
and the sash pot yet beiug in, he
had quite an easy job.  Threats are
freely exprassed of lynching this
robber bold; but there is an old
saying of "First catch your hare
before you can cook him."
