Proposed New Building for tbe
North Biding*.
A meeting of prominent business men
was held in Peterson's Hall on Monday
to disenss matters in connection with
the proposed hospital. Mb. W. M.
Brown was voted to tbe ohair and Mb.
Moboan David secretary,
The Chairman said the object of the
meeting was a worthy one, Tbere wet
hardly a centre of population in the
interior more in need of a hospital than
Revelstoke, and he was afraid tbey
would have to go to the Government for
an appropriation.
Dr. E. H. S. McLean said he thought
they were all agreed a hospital was a
necessity in this town, as tbe centre of
a large distriot. They did not intend to
erect a magnificent structure, but
simply a hospital. To have a similar
institution lo tbe one recently erected
at Golden, with bathR and wards for
different diseases, would dost about
$40,00. He thought a building sullloi-
ent for present needs oould be built for
abont $2,600. The Government gave
the Golden Hospital an appropriation,
and wonld in all likelihood do tbe same
for Bevelstoke. It should bn a two-
story building and would accommodate
10 or 12 patients. A $10 ticket would entitle anyone to free treatment for a year.
Subscription boxes could be plaoed in
public places, and no doubt an income
would be assured with the help of tbe
Government and oar business men.
Kamloops Hospital had had a bard time
to make both ends meet, owing to so
many cases from Revelstoke. Oue large
ward with 6 cots, surgery, kitchen, eto.,
on the ground floor with rooms upstairs.
The Freemasons would furnish one room
and call it tbe Masonio Ward. The
Oddfellows would do the same. Tbey
should ask tbe Government lor $2,000.
If Golden got $2,000, Bevelstoke, beiug
much larger, ought certainly to have as
much. He thought from $500 to $700
oould be raised in the town. They
might think $2,000 too much or too little
to ask for, and aftor discussing tbe matter they sbould appoint a oommittee to
draw np a petition to the Government.
He did not think tbere was a town in
B.C. so large as Bevelstoke whioh did
not bave a hospital.
Mb. R, Howson thought the matter
should be taken up in earnest. Tbey
onght to go to the citizens and ask them
what they would give, and then go to
the Government for the remainder.
The Government would certainly be
more ready to help them when tbey
knew the citizens were doing aii they
oonld to help themselves.
Mr, J. W. Haskins said be believed
the citizens would put their hands deep
in their pockets for suoh a good cause.
Mr. T. L, Haig had little doubt bat
what the Government would subscribe
in a generous manner for a hospital,
aud tbe citizens also, beoanse the town
needs snob an institution very badly.
Dr. McLean thought they oould certainly get the money needed from tbe
Government and from tbe citizens. He
moved tbat tbe following form tbe committee:���Messrs. O. Lindmark, W. M.
Brown, D. Robinson, R. Howson, F. B.
Wells, H. N. Conrsier, J. W. Haskins,
J. Abrahamson, H. J. Bourne and Dr.
The Chairman said tbe petition and
the subscription list should be taken
around at onco, He thought the Government would not hesitate to subscribe
as had been done in similar cases in
other towns. His hotel bad been a
refuge for sick men ever since be came
to the town in 1885. A hospital waa
greatly needed oo account of the Urge
distriot tributary to the town.
Dr. McLean asked if it would tie advisable to ask aid from the O.P.R, He
knew Mr, Marpole would act liberally
towards them.
Mr. Haskins waa confident that Mr.
Marpole would do all in hia power to
help them,
Mr. Ham said they ought to lay the
matter before tbe C.l'.R. Couipany. He
thought it would be unwise uot to ask
the C.P.R. to suhsoribe,
Mr. C. E. Shaw (on behalf of Mr. F.
B. Wells) asked where the hospital
would be situated.
Mr. Lindmark said the Government
had a block of land in the town, a portion of whiob they wonld most likely
give for snob a purpose,
Mr. H. J. Boubne said suoh a question was entirely ont of place. They
should gut tbe Goverument grant of
money first, and then they would soou
tiud a situ. It ought to be located as far
from dwellings as possible, He thought
they certainly ought to ask the O.P.R.
to subsuribe, The hospital would not
be of great size. It would be situated
between tbe two towns,
Mr. Shaw : Mr. Bourne says my question is entirely oot of plaoe. Villi that
charming assumption of authority bo
characteristic of him Mr. Bourne save
the huttpital will be as lar removed from
dwellings aa possible. That is an absurd
statement, as according to that it might
be placed down at the Uruon Slide,
which would make it even more out of
plas<> than luy question. (Laughter,)
Mr. Bonnie, however, towards the close
of bis speech condescendingly tells me
all 1 want to know.
,   Dr, McLean said both ends of Hie
owu onuii*. io tuiU togolker in mum hu
important matter. The advisability ot
approaching the C.P.R. sbould be lelt
in tbe bands of the committee. He was
strongly of opiuion that tbe matter
should lie discussed in the local paper.
Messrs, Haig and Haskins thought
tbe question of situ might well bc left
until the money was subscribed. Mr.
Haskins, continuing, said be thought
they onght to have an interview wiih Mr.
Marpole on bis next visit, and remarked
tbat people from Nakusp and Lar lean
must come to Revelstoke before they
could reach a hospital, either at Donald
or Kamloops,
Mr. Haio then moved, and Mr. Howson suconded, tbat tho oommittee discuss tbe matter at tbe conclusion of this
meeting. -Carried.
At the committee meeting Mr. H. 3.
Bourne was elected chairmau and Dr.
MoLean secretary.
Tbe amount subscribed np to yesterday wa- $1:000.
Did  Win. Glenn Receive
His Injuries?
The case oi Wil Hum Glenn, who wus
aeut from here to Westminster Hospital
two weeks ago, is being published iu
tbe coast papers. We heard a rumor
tbat Gleun had been knock",] dowu and
jumped upou during a drunkeu quarrel,
but as he stated to Dr. McLean that ho
had been kicked by a boive uo notice
was Inked of tbe rumor. There is no
doubt, however, that Gleun did bave a
souffle with O'Leary, and that be was
under tlio influence of drink at the time,
It is quite possible tbat. be mado some
remark which raised O'Leary's ire and
brought upon himself suoh u fearful
puuisbment. If O'Leary did commit
this brutal act be must be taught that
he cannot maim a man for life wilb the
same impunity th.it is permitted south
of tbe boundary liue, If it is proved
that O'Leary jumped on Glenn British
law must jump on bim if ever he sets
foot in B.C. again. A groat deal of intoxicating liquors has been aud is still
being dispensed between Bevelstoke and
the head of the lake; illegally of course,
as no one holds a liceuse between these
poiuts. The matter ought to be investigated aud the blame plaoed on tbe right
The New Westminster " Columbian "
publishes the following, under tbe head
of "ShockingBrutality"-
"A rancher named William Glen, of
Arrow Lake, Kootenay, was brought to
the city a few days ago and placed in St.
Mary's Hospital for treatment. He is
Buffering from frightful ruptures of the
stomach aud abdomen, the result of a
brutal kicking by a neighbour named
O'Leary aud several other men. Glen's
condition is very critical, and it is
doubtful if he will recover, A difficult
operation was performed on bim yesterday by Drs, lagan, Walker aud Boggs,
and he rested easier lust night, but his
recovery is by no means oertaiu. His
deposition has been takeu by Mr. T. C.
Atkinsou, P. M., and Mr. A. Leam>,
acting for the Crown, took out a commission yesterday before Mr. Justice
MoGreight, to examine Glen, iu oase bis
injuries should prove fatal. Iu his deposition, Glen aays thut ou January 21st
he went to Daniel O'Lear.v's plaoe to
buy a borse. Iu makiug tbe bargain
they had some words and O'Leary
knocked him down. Three or fonr other
men were present, and, with O'Leary,
turned ou Glen and kicked bin about
the stomaoh and abdomen, finally leaving bim for dead on tbe ground. Glen
reoovered consciousness after a time aud
dragged himself home. Tbiukiug he
would recover, Glen did not seek medical assistance at once, but bis condition
finally became bo bad that he was
obliged to oome bere for treatment. A
warrant is out for O'Leary, but he oan't
be found. He was iu Voncouver a few
days ago, and iB now thought to be iu
Seattle. Mr. Moresby is working tbe
oase." .*
The followng acoount has beeu given
by Borne friends of O'Leary who witnessed tbe affair:���On the arrival of the
steamer at the bead of tbe luke from
Naknsp Glenn was there soliciting Ibe
passengers to make the trip to Revelstoke in his stage. He waa under the
influence of liquor, and had one or two
Bouflles with meu in the orowd before he
Highest Honors���World's Fair.
A pure Crape Cream of Tartar Powder. Free
from Ammonia, Alum or any other adulterant
reached O'Leary, with whom he had a
short tussle, but thero was no kicking
aud Glenn was not knocked down. It
Wua merely a harmless clinch, and Glenu
could not huve received any serious iu-
jury, He was aeeu riding a horse afterwards, and iu his then condition it was
quite possible for bim to have been
thrown off and kioked or stepped on by
the animal Jack O'Leary is a railroad
contractor and had a large contract on
the Nukusp k Slocau, and has to-day a
considerable number of men in bis employ ou the Revelatoke k Arrow Lake
Railway. Ho is said to be gentlemanly
in conversation, cool, good-naitired, and
is well spoken of by the men in his employ. From all accounts be would be
the last mau to be suspected of doing
such a brutal thiug, and until a little
more light is thrown on the muttor we
must give him Ihe benefit of tbe doubt,
NewB gets absurdly inaccurate tbe
fin ther it travels. The Winnipeg Free
Press has the followingi-
"At Arrow Lake, Jl.C, yesterday Jaok
Glen accused Dun O'Leary of cheating
bim on a horse deal. O'Leary lost his
temper, felled Glen with his list, und
jumped up and down ou bis prostrate
body, Gleu is dying, O'Leary has escaped tu tbe States.''

If Terry had been palo when Fanny spoke
to hci- in the morning, she is still paler

are delicately shaded, still there is enough
light to let her perfectly be seen. To her,
indeed, the room seems inordinately bright.
Her pallor, however, is the only sign of emotion she betrays, She returns Fanny's welcoming words, slowly, prettily, with a smile
on her oliarming lips.
She hud seen Trefusis the moment she
entered the room. He was sitting next Miss
Anson, and Terry waa conscious that tho
latter bent towards him aud whispered
something hurriedly to him as ahe came in.
He has now risen, und is coming towards
her, h ihling out his hand, and smiling pleasantly. There is not a touch of nervousness about him, Ilo seoina ,|tiito honestly
glad to see her, tolling her so in the friendliest, easiest way,
Truly !",inny had been right. Ho has
got over all that!
One thing only in his manner strikes her
as strangfl, as apart from tho ordinary manner of a mere friend who meets one aftor a
long absence, Undoubtedly his gaze at her
lias been prolonged, scrutinizing, as if he
would read her. This perhaps more than
all ,-l��e hardens her, and gives her courage,
piitiing her on her mottle.
She smiles back at hiin in a leisurely
" I heard you had gono to the Rocky
Mountains," says she.
,: Not quito so far."
" 1 am glad of it. It brings you here
again sooner than we hoped for,"
If he had looked for agitation in her, ho
is certainly disappointed. She is regarding
him with a soft but steady gaze. There is
even perhaps a suspicion of laughter in her
eyes. .She is altogether composed. Sho is
even beginning to wonder at herself. After
all, perhaps there was not so much to bo
afraij. of; and of course thero is always a
good deal of moral support to be got out of
the remembranco that it was she who had
given him hia dismissal.
"Then we'll take a walk into the dark
ages, and perhaps you will tell me, as we
go, where your wisdom lay in"���cheerlully
���"consigning me to misery for life,"
"Oh, a? for that! However, for one
thing, I believe you expected me to obey
" No ! did I really ? What a confounded
prig I musl have been 1"
"That is too hard a word."
"Is it ?   What is the right one, then?"
"Well perhaps tyraut."
He looks amused.   "Is that softer?"
"Oh ever so much."
"I'll lake your word for it. And so I
was a tyrant? A prig? Uo you know'.'
I'm sure of it. liut I've reformed all that,
Vou gave me my lesson, you see. 1 owe you
more than I cau say, in many ways. Not. to
believe in my own judgment, for example ;
or to fancy myself so much ; or to have
faith in a woman's word."
Terry raises herself.
"Don'tstir," saya ho,laughing. "Why,
that is tho greatest good of all that you
have done me. It is ready. I was a fool
that time. I should have seen that I was
tho last m iu iu the world to ploase you,
ami that you wero the honcstost creature ou
earth, to break your word befoio it waa too
lato. I," laughing, "am awfully obliged
to you! Fancy how I should have reproached myself if I had ruined your life.
Vou saved ire from that I'1
"I saved you from more than that,���
from milling your owu lifo," says Terry,
"That's nothing, nothing at all. Itwas
your life waa lhe thing. Yoa see I am uot
so tyrannical aa I was. Aud so you think
I exp eted you to obey mo?"
"Quite that, if not, more, I think you
expected mo to bow down to you."
"I expeoted in vain, then. I don't be
lieve lever got my own way with you."
"Always ! Always!" says she, gayly.
"Not always, certainly."
"Yes, every time. You ordered me about
and scolded mo, and I bore it all most beautifully until I could bear it no longer." She
is looking at him and laughing, as if at
some good ohl joke.
"Aud do you mean to say that you never
ordered me about?"
"I? never I   Why," making a charming

simply  dressed,   The  white silk of  hor shaking his head at hor witl
th mock severity.
"You can't have forgotten it. The day
you sent me home like a whipped schoolboy,   You have not forgotten ?"
"Ah, that last day." She colore brilliantly in spite of herself, "Well, but that was
only oue day out of your many."
"Still, I never sent yon homo !" Here
they both laugh. "That's one to me. And
I bolieve if I had sent you, you wouldn't
hi've gone. So that makes two to me. I
obeyed you to the end. I went straight
" I believe you were very glad to go,"
says sho, involuntarily. The moment the
words are said she would have given a good
deal to get them buck again, hut that is
impossible. There is so much meaning in
them ; thoy almost convey a question, a
challenge. The warm flush of a while since
now deepens to a burning blush. The
knowledge that he is looking at her gives
her a little feeling of  suffocation.     "I
answer must bo, Never j but we might  begin ."
There is something so indifferent so mocking, in his tone, that Terry.turning abruptly away from him, steps- into tho lighted
room beyond,
gown clings clo3ely to her slender figure,
and is charmingly arranged, with little
touches of priceless lace about it hero and
there, round the short sleeves and the soft
girlish neek. Old Miss Bridget had left
many desirable things behind her, and the
single row of pearls that clasps Terry's
throat is worthy of mention. There is a
pearl pin or two also in the nut-brown
tresses of her hair. Her hands, as she
talks to him, are toying lightly with a large
whito feather fau.
Her eyes gloam at Trefusis between the
long dark lushes that fill so persistently,
making the short glimpses of the eyes ali
thc more precious:
.And wlien (lie Knight fawvcvilv all this,-

Curious Case lu a Russian Court.
It is not every day, aays a St. Petersburg
correspondent, that courts of justice aro
called upon to decide suoh cases lis the folio-ring, which was recently brought before
the district oourt of Kazan. A merchant
named Shamoff, acting ou the Christian
principle that ho who gives to the poor lends
to the Lord, is accustomed from timo to
time to bestow considerable sums of money
iu alms on the "deserving poor" of the
city, generally announcing the day and the
hour of the distribution a week beforo. Thc
other day a crowd of the indigent gathered
round his door, and waited (or the moving
of the waters. Some of theso objects of
pity prayed audibly, others only moaned,
while a few wero wholly Bilent, Suddenly
was heard, and a beggar woman, who might
bo Mcthuealeh'a oldest granddaughter,
danced about frantically, shrieking, ehout-
ing, and gnashing her gums in tho intervals, " She ia nosaeased," murmured the
crowd, whereupon they all devoutly made
the sign of the cross, and atood aside. But
sho was not possessed iu that sense. She
had been, ahe aaid, possessed of 450
roubles (��50) until threo or four minutes
previously, but was almost a beggar now.
This statement only confirmed the people
in their belief that she was mad, She waa
takon to tho police station, and here she
declaimed violently against the listlesaceas
of the members of tho force told oil to keep
order among the beggars, their first duty
boing, as she explained, to see that the
rights of property were respected. Sho
returned to the elation early every day to
with not haviug found the thief or tho
money, until at last thoy wero enabled to
assure her that the criminal���a beggar
woman like herself���was safe behind bolt
and bar, "A beggar woman?" sho exclaimed. "J.ist what I expected. A wolf
never eats a wolf, but one beggar-woman
despoils another. Oh, tho heathen ! May
God forgive her ! I hope the judges won't.'
The trial camo on before the distriot court
and a jury. Tlio prisoner���likewise a very
old woman���when asked to plead to the
charge, said she had grabbed the money
which was in a stocking and stowed away
carefully in the dress of her victim, She
had disposed of a hundred roubles, however, before being arrested, ao that only
350 figured in court. The jury retired to
consider their verdict on the conclusion of
the judgo's charge, aad shortly afterwards
they roturnod. In the Court reigned the
silence of tho tomb " Is Anna Meetina
guilty or not guilty?" asked the clerk.
" Indeed, and I'm guilty your honour.but I
hope you'll be lenient,"sobbed the prisoner.
" No, ma'am you aro not guilty," interrupted the foreman of the jury, whereupon
sho was set at liberty. " But will no good
Christian soul make good tho liundred
roublos that she stole from me and spont?"
whined the victim. Then tbo policeman
led her roughly away.

Some time ago a conspiracy was discovered
against the life of the Negus Menelik. Several well-known members of the Court wcre
implicated in tlie plot, but in view of tlie
influence they possessed the Empsror considered it advisable to pardon them.
It appears, however, that a youthful attendant on the Negus had been aware of
the secret movement against his Majesty,
and took to flight on the conspiracy being
revealed, as he feared his royal master's
anger. He was subsequently captured,and,
without the pretenso of a trial, was condemned to have hia tongue cut out and one
of his feet sawn otf. The sentence was duly
carried out, but, not content with the torture to which the boy hail been subjected,
the Negus, eight days afterward, ordered
that his right hand sbould bs cut nlf, and
that he should then be loft exposed in the
desert, in tho full glare of the sun, until he
was devoured by vultures and hyenas, Thia
inhuman act on tho part of tho Emperor,
who professes Christianity, has caiuod universal horror iu tbe country.

Tiie spread of ihe English-speaking peo
pies during the laat ninety years ia tho most
remarkable phenomenon ever recorded in
history. Thwo luve boen repeated illustrations of a particular people assuming both
political, oommaroial and military supremacy over their neighbors, but when this
happened, it was usually by a very small
growtb.and as-es were required tor a nation
to attain such development as to enable it to
establish anything like a widespread dominion, The Anglo-Saxon race, on the contrary, has sprung to the front almost at a
single bound. A hundred years ago England
was by no means the most formidable of
{European nations; 300 years ago Hires or
four were stronger, lint during the century
now closing, the English-speaking people
have demonstrated a vitality of oharaoter,
an ability lo extend their own power by poi-
itloa, commercial and military energy,
and by planting colonies aud in various
other ways broadening their inlluenco,have
P soed thomiolves so far ahead of all the
rest that, by comparison, tho others are not
to be mentioned in tho same connection. An
examination of the history of the world
during tho last half of lhe eighteenth
and the first quarter of the nineteenth centuries shows that those seventy-five years
were U,e turning point.nnd that the chances
at the beginning of this period wore in favor
of branoh rather than of English domination. In 1750 the only English colonies that
were worth mentioning were in a line along
the Atlantic coast of North America, while
the brenoh possessions swung round thorn
in a grand semicircle from the mouth of the
St. Lawrence to the mouth of tho Mississippi. Then came the French and Indian
wars, m some respects moro momentous
than that ot the Revolution. The latter
was a family quarrel to determine whether
an acknowledged branch should be governed from tne old homestead or should have
a homestead of ita own ; the French and
Indian, vara determined that this country
should be Euglish instead of French. Nearly two centuries earlier, the growing power
ot England had asserted itself against the
aspiring arrogance of Spain.and the destruction of ihe Armada had secured for the insular power that immunity fiom invasion
that enabled its people to prepare for the
grand colonial future that was before them.
lhe later contest with France nnder Na-
po.eon again resulted in a victory for England, and from that time on the colonial
progress of Great Britain and the spread of
tiie English language have boen uninterrupted.
_ Even considered apart from the colonies,
including m that term the American States
which severed the family tie moro than a
century ago, the growth of England is
something quite phenomenal, ln 1480 the
estimated population of England was 3,-
700,001}, while that of France was 12,600,-
000; that of Austria, 9,500,000, while Italy
had 9,2,)O,0O0, and Spam 8,800,000, England
being thus one ol the smallest States in
Europe. A century ago its population was
still far behind, for while its people numbered 9,561,000, France had mounted to
2,,,001,0011, outnumbering England almost
three to one, while Austria had 20,000,000,
Italy 12,001,0:0, and Spain had increased
to barely 9,000,009. In 18S0, however, the
conditions of population were more equal,
England haviug 38,000,009, France, 37,000,-
000, Austria about tho same, while the
German Empire had oome into being with
45,000,000, Italy had increased to 28,000,-
000 and Spain, in spite of favorable circumstances, had but 16,000,000. Ths percentage of gain for Great Britain, therefore, is
thus seen U he much largor than for any
other country in Europe, but thia faot,
siguihcant as it is, by no means represents the actual gain that has been made
by the English-speaking peoples. To
comprehend the full force of the statement,
it muat be understood that to the 33,090,000
of (ireat Britain must be added the 65,090-
009 of the United State?, and at least 14,.
009,000 of Eigliah or descendants of English
in other parts of the world, thus making
the entire English population, or at least
English-speaking population, 118,000,000.
The marvelous development of the United
Slates haa been too often commented on to
need further explanation, but that of Australia and tho South African colonies is not
less remarkable, The first English settlement in Australia was made in 1783, and
the magnifioent group of colonies that now
fill this great antarctic continent number at
the very least 3,700,009 population, and the
probability is that 4,200,009 would bc
nearer the correct figure. Tho South African oolonios date from 1814, and now comprise half a dozen States, of which tho development has only begun. Up to a lew
years ago thero was a very general idea
I'aiat the tropica wer for the colored races
and that tho whitos could not live there,
hut the experionco of English colonists in
Africa and Australia has completely upset
this notion, and tho probability is that in
tho noar future tropical Africa will have
more whites than natives.
But these figures, imposing as they are,
do not adequately represent the extent of
Anglo-Saxon influence. The commercial supremacy of the Anglo-Saxon race is far
ahead of its political ascendancy. The
English peoples manufacture goods for the
world and do the world's carrying trade ;
.-very ocean is piliced by English men-ot-
war, and the marine ascendency thus established probably carries with it more
influence than oan easily be imagined, into
quarters where the political power of the
English races is scarcely felt.
me ENT,i.isn lasooaob.
Although the English peoples rule one-
third of the earth and its inhabitants, the
English language has not yet made the eon-
quests that may be expected of it, since, according to the best accepted statistics, it is
spoken by only about one-fourth of those
who are directly or indirectly under English control.   Small as this proportion may,
however, seem to be, it is really large when
compared with the progress made by other
languages. The English language is spoken
by at least 111,009,000 of peoples.   Next
in importance come the German and the
Russian, eaj-h of which, according to Mulhall, la spoken by about 75,000,009.   The
French is tho vernacular of 51,090,00 : the
Spanish of 42,000,000, comprising not ouly
Spaiu propoi', but those countries of America
where Spanish is the language of the courts
and to a large extent also of  the  people.
Next comes the Italian, the language of 33,-
009,000, and, last of all, tbo Portuguese,
which is spoken by 13,000,000. When compared withtbe English, thereforc,all dwindle
into insignificance, for almost as many .speak
English as speak German and French combined. There are more speakersof English on
tho globe to-day than there are of Spanish,
Italian and Portuguese combined. So far as
numbers go, the Chinese languago is used
by more human beings than any othor one,

lie Will Endeavor lo Liberate two Soldiers
TukeiiC'aplirc at tbe Battle of Khar
A New York despatch says:���Even in
these days of daring explorers, the undertaking of Colonel Feodor Zubovics, of the
Anstro-Hungarian army, will be followed
with deep interest by thousands of the people outside of his native land. He started
from Buda-Pest a few days ago for Cairo,
whence he will penetrate into the interior
of Africa to liberate two prisoners now held
by the Iier jo Mahdi. One of them is Szlatin
Bey, once a comrade of Zubovics in Hungary, and later a colonel in the Egyptian
army; and the other is Ignaz Neufeld, a
Tyrolean, who was a canteen carrier for the
same army. Ten years ago the two soldiers
were taken prisoners by the Mahdi at the
battle of Khartoum, with the Austrian
priest, Josef Oberwalder. It may be remembered that Oberwalder succeeded in
escaping from the stronghold of the Mahdi
a little more than a year ago. Two nuns
shared the hardships of the flight, and succeeded in reaching the coast with him. The
tales of the escaped priest excited the interest and sympathy of the whole civilized
world at the time. He brought additional
particulars ef the death of Gordon.
Oberwalder, who 1 ad known Zubovics in
his Egyptian days, bore a message to the
Hungarian from Szlatin and Nenfeld, begging him to free them. The colonel sent a
letter to Oberwalder at Cairo in reply to my
message, aayiug rather ungallantiy : " I
ahall come, Satan take you 1 Why did you
not liberate Szlatin and Neufeld yourself,
instead of two nuns?"
In the meantime, Zubovics, having learned from tho prieit that money would be no
aid in his attempt to secure the relcas; of
his friends, has formed a new plan to fre
them himself. The details of his icheme he
has naturally declined to mako public,
boyond the fact that ho intends to make
his journey entirely alone, Years may go
by before he rstnrns to his home, Many
people think that he will never come hack
( lho crime tor which rainier suiterci
was shrouded in mysiery. At midnight on
May 7, 1891, Painter was seen to enter the
house where ho lived with Aline MoLern,
or Martin, as she was known. A short
time afterwards he ran down the stair ex
claiming, "My (iod, sonic one has killed my
Alice !'' He rushed in search of the police,
who arrived a few minutes later, and,going
to tho room, found Alice Martin with the
imprints of a strong band on her throat.
Iier head was crushed by blows which had
been evidently doalt with a chair found
lying broken on the door. The walls aud
room were spattered wiih blood, but none
was found on Painter's clothing. One point
mado In Painter's behalf was the theory of
the woman's murder by a man named Dick
Edwards, now confined in a Southern penitentiary on a chargo of committing throe
similar murders. Several witnesses testified
to hearing the Martin woman in conversation with a man who answered Elwaids'
description a short time boforo tho murder
was committed, and to having heard this
man make threats against the woman's life.
Unfortunately for Paiutor, much ot the
evidence waa conflicting.and disagreed even
with his own statement of the caso,
Daniel Coughlin, on trial for the murder
of Dr. Cronin, was not himself to-day. The
cause was to bo found in tho horrible
double-hanging of (ieorge Painter. Tou
daya ago tho alleged murderer of Dr.
Cronin waa removed from the boys'department of the County (laol to a cell in
"murderers' row," where Painter was eon-
fined. When the guards camo to take
Coughlin to tlio court room this morning
they noticed that his eyc3 wero heavy and
bloodshot. Ho had passed a sleepless
night. From hia coll he hoard the noise
made by the hasty construction of tho gallows. Tho sound of the carpenters' hammer breaking the stillness which pervades
tho gaol at midnight depressed his nerves,
and ho lay awake, while unpleasant
thoughts of his possible late drove away
sleep. When the hour for tho execution
arrived " Big Oan" could not help witnessing through tho bars of his cell door the
procession to the scaffold. Ho quickly
learned the cause of the noise and confusion and cries whicli followed, and the news
of the ghastly occurrence upset him.
On his way to tho court room he spoke
only of Painter and the hanging to his
guards. He expressed great admiration for
tho dead  murderer's   nerve.   " It beats

A Chicago special says ;���The execution
in the county gaol on Friday morning of
laat week of Oeorge H. Painter, formerly of
Brooklyn, N.Y., for the murder of his mis-
tiess, Alico Martin, wasattonded by a horrible scene. When the trap was sprung tiie
rope snapped in two, and the unfortunate
man, who weighed over 200 pounds.dropped
eight feet to the stone lloor of the corridor.
His head struck heaviiy as he fell, and the
blood gushed from his ears and nostrils. He
was picked upunconscious,laid on ihe drop
in an incumbent position and another noose
adjusted. The drop fell a seoond time without further accident. Painter protested his
innocence up to the timo when the cap waa
placod over his head. One of the attendant
physicians expressed the opinion that he
was already deal wheu the drop
was sprung the second time. Seventy-five
persous, half of whom were representatives
of the press, witnessed tho execution,
Painter was a lino looking man and a murmur of sympithy went up Irom thc crowd
as ho came into view, llis nerve was wonderful. He walked unsupported totheoentre
of tho trap and nodded to a newspaper man
whom he recognized. Tho condemned man
was asked by Sheriff Gilbert if he had any-
'hing to say.
Looking straight at thoae before him, ho
paused for a moment, and then in a half-
hesitating manner, his tones growing firmer
and more emphatic as he proceeded, he
commenced;���"Gentlemen, I Bee some

brotherhood of humanity has taught lots of
men better than this, There was a timo
when in India men sought death, thinking
it an advance in the future state. To-day
I fear death.   I do not want to die."
For a moment the condemned man paused, as though his voice had failed him. His
auditors were breathless. The dropping of
a pin would have echoed through the long,
gloomy corridor. Then, suddenly gathering strength, and with even more earnest-.          .

I'.he Story of a Dym�� People-
thief A-ilrnnn 1_;.ii;; Sings the Swan Son!
or His Vaulehlnj Maori People,
A strange, pathetic swan song of a dying
peoplo, sung by its chief, is the plaint msde
to tho civilized world by Apiraua Turtipu
N'gata, head ofthe Maori nation,in a series
of essays lately printed in a New Zealand
paper. The chief is a well-oducated man,a
graduate of a colonial university, the equal
in culture of tho best class of white people
who occupy his native land; but he is a
native at heart, a Maori iii feeling, sym-
nathies, and inspirations, and all his
thoughts are those of his people.
At the advent oi the white man in N'etr
Zealand the Maoris, a heroic race, then solo
owners of llie country, were a numerous
pe.iple. Twenty years ago, although even
then much diminished by diseases brought
by tlieircouquerors,they numbered 109,000,
To-day but few moro than 40,009 of the
race remain. Outwardly it is a much
changed people, too, for it has adopted the
white man's clothes, his customs, most of
liis vices, and ostensibly his roligUn. liut
at heart thc Maori is a savage yet.
In his series of essays on his people, the
chief tells much that is interesting of their
history, their idea", thoir habits, and their
feelings, but ever aud anon he comes hack
and dwells nn the ono theme tbat is filling
his mind and searing his heart, the decay
and approaching extinction of his race. Un
language is remarkably eloquent, ami full
of lofty metaphor end symbolism, but a
sombreness overepreada all his thoughts,
and sorrow echoes in all lie says. He writes
bitterly, yet not vcngeftilly, of the woel
tbo white man has broughl to his peoplo j
not alone of wrongs inflicted, but of the'
Bufferings and defeats that inevitably must
come of the contact of a weaker and a
stronger race. The Maoris, he aaya, are
dying of contact with the white man, and
nothing but a miracle can save them ; and
a miracle there will not be.
He gives an interesting account of tho
impression made by Christianity on the
Maoris, His countrymen, tho chief aays,
were attracted to the white man's creed
almost wholly because of tbe miraculous
career ascribed to Christ. They have a
great craving for th ��� supernatural, and thc
doings of Christ took great hold ou their
imagination, liut the native priests, taking
advantage of the losson, have largely turned their peoplo from even a semblance of
adhesion to Christianity by feeding their
craving for the miraculous, and in the lines
of the old beliefs, or, rather, by formulating a new creed called Hau-hauism, which
has spread greatly.
"The feelings and motives that influence
the Maori's inner and more private life today," says Chief Apirana, "are the samo
that influenced him ages ago, though tamed
and refined by conformity to European
oustoms, by contact with European civilization, and by the far-reaching influence of
Christianity. Your Maori of to-day is but
the savage of yesterday, polished and
d-aped in Euglish finery. Within him
there are raging the fierce passions that but
a while ago made him revel in slaughter
and cannibalism. His bands are bound
with the manacles of eiili ition and
humanity, but they are restless to grasp
once more the spear, the taiaha, aud mere.
Outwardly, he accepts the truth of Christian teaching, and worships the Pakeha'i
god most reverently, but hia mind is governed by superstition, his secret longings and
natural tendencies are toward the tohungas,
the only visible monuments of his old
priestly regime."
The Maori,says the chief.hates the Pake-
ha, the white man, and yet is irresistibly
drawn to his settlements and compelled to
a degrading imitation of tho worser of his
ways of life, which eventually kill off the
pure race and leave only a degenerate half
cjste people, against whom Chief Apirana
ie especially bitter. "Illicitintercourse.vice,
and immorality have already destroyed the
purity of our race," he BayB; "have
stunted a race once famous for its physique,
have rooted out whatever industrial tendencies survived other pernicious influences,
and degraded the characteristics it once
possessed of hospitality.liherality, bravery,
and manliness," The only hope of improvement he sees in the deportation of all the
lower whites, and this he himself declares
to bo impossible. Education only renders
tho Maori unfit to take part in the struggle
for life in which his race is engaged. Takins*
away the outer show of their savagery, ii
takes away at the same lime their stamina,
Notable Maori men and women there have
been, educated and enlightened to a high
degree, but in tho majority of cascB there
haa eventually been a total relapse of the
ostensibly educated Maoris into the wayi of
their forefathers. And now this once

Explanations to account for the fading
