Yorktun, N. W, T, Oitt. 31—The situation here today remains practically unchanged. The Doukhobor muu to the
number of 700 marched eftflt yesterduy
morning, TraiiiB frum tlie city p*eeed
many of them alongside the track sleeping ; Bouie of them were eeen to atari up
hi a fright aB tbe train roared by. In
Yorkton iteelf the condition of things
show unmistakable eigne of betterment.
With the exception of eome few -ink and
feeble folk, ail lhe D-juMiobur pilgrims
are women and children.
Yesterday the disposition ol the women was in most cases very satisfactory,
many ol tbem had for days taken hardly
any nourishing fund, yet when the immigration jlfioers tflered them food,
such as fruit, bread and biscuits which
their religious convictions will permit
them to eat, they would throw it out of
their hands and refuse to eat it. Late
last night a few became more reasonable
and today practically all are eating the
food provided for them.
The Bakers have all ordered iu en ill-
cient to supply the demand and the
Yorkton housewives bave been busy nil
day eudeavoring to supplement it. The
women at first refused to cat the biead,
aud at Mr. Speers'suggaBtion it waa of
fered to the children. The fatoielied
little tots grabbed hungrily at ihe food
and tbe example once set, Iheir elder?
followed suit,
The 1 100 pilgrims still in town nn
housed in four buildings. Tbey wen
crowded together so closely ibat il
was almost impossible to avoid stepping
on some uf'(hem iu pacing Lliu win*
flows.
Nearly all were quietly sleeping. Tlie
only sounilB were tbe light breathing ol
tbe pilgrims, here and Ibere could be
seen the figure ol one of the pilgrims elect with arme crossed over tho bosom
and lowered head. In the Immigration
hall wae one women clad in coaiBe wliite,
about sixty years of agt*; a iltzen others
were around ber o whom she wits telling that she wae to be the mother of the
Lord. In another mom was tlie aged
women who has been demented sinei-
the Doukhobore came to Oauada. Interpreter Harvey put a number i.f
questions to many of tbe pilgrims. They
were very vague but very positive in
their replies. They were, they eird,
'•Looking for freedom;" "they were
going away to look for JesuB."

Gigantic Meat Trust.
Chicago, Oct. 81,—The Record-Herald
says,- two big consolidations areplauned
hy the hw f Interest, The packers will
combine first and then iffect a merger
of all the etock yards, which are controlled in Uoaton. All the properties
Involved are owned and controlled hy
the owners of the principal beef packing
plants. The different yards that prob-
tibly will be included in tbe deal, aside
from the Chicago Yards are those at
KaiiBBB City, East St. Lcuib, St. Joseph
Mo, Fort Worth, Texas, South Omaha
and Sioux Cily,la. The Armour interest is probably the largest in the Kan-
eaB City yards. The Armour, Swift and
Morris control tbe East St, Louie yards,
Tbe Swills own the St. Joseph yards,
the Armours and Swifts own tbe Fort
Worth yards and rhe Swlf'B control at
Sioux City. While the control of the
Chicago yards ie .held in Boston, the
Chicago packers have large holdings of
tbe stock also and their recommendations would undoubtedly bave great
weight'with the Eastern capitalists.
The plan for consolidating tbe various
etock yards has not projirersed ae yet to
n point where tbe amount of etock required has been more tban discussed. It
.lonbtedly would fun close up to $100-
bOO.lHW, exclusive nf tbe amount required for the original pack htg'"com panit-s
combination, which is said to be $500,000
000.

THB LIBERAL LEADER.
According to the Colonist there wai
a rumour on the itreeta of Victoria on
Tueaday evtning to the effect that Joaeph
Htrlin M. P. P., Hon. William Templeman and other Liberal leaden had tattled their difference!, that Mr. Martin
had become, through the good offices of
mutual friendi, persona grata to tbe
Liberal pirty at a whole, and that hia
leadership wti now univereally recog-
nittd.
It wti Inrlher ittted tbat Mr. Martin
wonld shortly abandon the practice of
law and devote hii whole energiei to
politics.
It il to be hoped lor the good of thie
province that the foregoing itatement ia
correct, for Hon, Joseph Martin, K. 0.,
it the only man in thie province capable
ol leading the Liberal party. Tbe dill',).
rente! mentioned by the Ooloniet were
none oi Mr. Martin's seeking, but were
lorced npon him by persons who had
their own enda to serve. Tbat those
differences bave been amicably adjneted
il vtry ittlifactory.
There could be no question ai to the
popularity of Mr. Martin with the great
Liberal convention which mot in Vanconver laat spring, when it unanimously
tlected him leader, and since then (hero
hat been no question amonget the Liberal! of Britiih Columbia that Mr. Martin
il tht leader, the only nossible lender.
The luggeation to the contrary came from
tht Tories, and wai only one of their
aoniewhat brainleas attem pte to sow tares
amongit the Liberal wheal.
A United Liberal party lor British
Columbia meant that this province will
probably enjoy settled government for
many years. Mr. Martin ia tbe only man
connected with public life In thie province who hai ever originated legislation
that could be described ae sound and
wile. Hii Ideas have been stolen repeated
ly by rival politicians who have boldly
claimed credit for measures first aug-
(tlttd or outlined by Mr. Martin,
Hii fatnoiii platform whon he appealed
to tht ptopie ol the province two yeare
ago and ao notrly won, has been etolen
holua bolus by tbe Conservatives, the
Progreiaivei tnd til the other faction!
whioh "havo no uie for" Mr. Martin
—except hie bralm, with which tbey
enuningly make np their own deflclenclea
in thtt respect.
If ita to be party linei or not at tbe
neat provincial election? That ia tbe
question of the hour in political "ipheree
of influence," Looking at the matter
Irom a practical tnd not a itntimental
etandpoint, we ehonld lay that ttraight
party lines wonld out the knot wbieb
baa been tying np the affaire of tbia province tor 10 many yean. No miniitry oi
mixed political viewi eonld ever do the
good that could be achieved by tho-
mogenuua cabinet, especially in the province'! relation! with Ottawa,

Borne of tbe moat practical varieties of
cajea and cloaks which have been introduced lately bave tbo long depending
ends put to a good use, as thc-ee are so
arranged as to allow of being twisted
round the neck so ne to afl'ord additional
warmth, aud prove very welcome und
cosy when one is exposed to a cutting
wind during a long drive or on the sea.
A tassel finishes off these long ends.
That braid known ae the "mixture"
braid Ib found on many of the new costumes for the season, and broad, square
revers gain ground. Our boas are still
very much of the pelerine order, but
they areas diaphanous as ever. The
pelerine or shoulder capo style is finding
effect, too, in the furs for the season;
indeed, tbere are some indications that
we may ere long return to those capes
that we once loved eo dearly, which juet
come to, or below, the shoulders, with
wondrous collars. They were an admirable wrap, one that could be removed
and donned easily, and, at tho same time,
are a finish to a plain winter costume.!
Their reappearance would be welcome,
A full-length coat, or opera wrap, of I
Ivory white cloth, hae, down each front,
three flat half pleats which terminate
three inches from the foot, and the righc
band front is edged with two Inch Rue*
eian sable. Round the neck are three
oollars of the cloth, alternating with
three frills of white kilted chiffon, and
intersected at intervals by tails of the
fur. Stole ends of the cloth depend from
the collars* in Iront, and terminate in
fur taila. The loose ilecvos - bave four-
inch turned-back cufla of white and gold
embroidery, edged witb the sable, and
the drooping under-alceves are of tbe
chiffon, frilled at the edge. The muff en
suite is of fur, with frills of white tucked
silk, and fifteen-inch ends of the silk,
inset an inch from the edge with two-
inch transparent cream ..coloured L-.ce.

Don't waste your money on an accumulation of cheap bric-a-brac (so-called),
It only helps to gather duet and dirt.
Don't choose plain curtains with a

Don't buy a carpet with a big pattern

Don't buy large and,'cumbecome furniture for a smalt.houae. Large pieces
of furniture take away from the apparent

The Death of the Flowers.
The melancholy days are como, tho saddest of the year.
Of wailing winds, and naked wood*-,
and meadows brown and aere.
Heaped in Iho hollows of the {(rove the
Autumn leaves lie dead;
They rustle in th- eddying gust, a_td to
the rabbit's tread,
The robin and the wren are flown, and
from the shrubs tbe jay;
And from the wood top callB the crow
through all the gloomy day.
Where are the flowers, the fair young
flowers, that lately sprang and stood
In  brighter light and   softer aire,  a
beauteous eieterhood?
Alas I they all are iu their graves; the
gentle race of flowers
Are lying in their lowly beds, with lhe
fair and good of oure.
1 The rain Is falling where they lie, but
the cold November rain
CallB not from out the gloomy earth the
lovely ones again.
The wind flower aud the violet, they
perished long ago,
And tbe brier rose  and the orchid died
amid tho Sum mor glow;
But ou the bill the golden rod and (be
. aster in the wood.
Aod tbe yellow Buiifl.wer by the brook,
in Autumn beauty stood,
Till fell tbe frost from the clear, cold
heaven as f_ll_ the plague on men,
And the brightness of their smile was
gone from upland, glade and glen.
And now. when comes the calm, mild
day, as Btill such daye will come,
To call the squirrel and the bee from out
tbeir Winter home;
When the sound of dropping nuteie
heard, though all tbetrees are still,
And twinkle in tne smoky light the wt*
ters of the rill.
The south wiud searches for the floweia
whose fragrance late he bore,
And sighs to Bud tbem in the wood and
by the stream no more.
And then I think of one who in her
youthful beauty died;
The fair, meek blossom that grew up and
faded by my side,
Id tbe cold inSm earth we laid her when
the forest cast the leaf,
And we wept tbat oue so lovely should
have a life eo brief.
Yet not unmeet it was that one like that
young friend of ours,
8o gentle and eo beautiful, should perish
with tbe flowers.
—William Cui-lkn Bryant.
A Startling Declaration.
Chicago,Out,20,—At the Siual Temple
last night Dr. Emil G.-Uireeh declared
bii absolute disbelief In the llrst chapter
of Genesis, and bade his congregation
di.c.rd it as an article of faith.
"Religion, biology and astronomy," he
declared, "have each given evidence tbat
make it impossible to believe that the
world was created in six days. It Is im
possible also to give serious consideration
to the efforts that have been made to reconcile science and religion.
"All nations," said Dr. Hirai-h, "have
tbeir idea of the creation of the world,
and in every case the creation has bei-n
ascribed to their favorite gods. The world
has gradually progressed from polytheistic to monotheistic Ideas, and there is no
doubt that the first chapter of Genesis
ie simply a relation by eome Jewish
writer of the stories told by the Babylonians which the Jews had carried from
their captivity in Babylon (Kit) years before Christ."

NINTH LANCERS DISGRACED
Extraordinary Punishment of a
Whole Regiment.
London, Oct. 31.—That crack cavalry
corps, the Oth Lancers, save the "Ex*
press," is in disgrace. According to let*
lore which have come home from India
by the laet mail, their leave and privilege have been stopped, because of tbe ill-
treatment of a native, which took place,
It is Bald, near their barracks,
The regiment is now stationed at Sial*
koto, in the Funjiub, after service in
South Africa only a few weeks short of
the full duration of tbe war,
Ou the night of arrival at tbat station
the men of the regiment were entertained by the meu of the Gordon Highland*
ere aud the Royal Horse Artillery, and
on the same night a native was brutally
ill-treated. He was either kicked or
struck, Heing so severely injured that
hia death resulted a week later. He wis
found nearly four miles from the bar*
racks occupied by the Oth Lincars, and
was taken to the hospital, remaining un-
coneclous till the day of his death. To*
ward the last, however, he recovered
sufficiently to make a statement, in
whlcb be said he believed it waa one of
the Oth Lancers who had illused blm.
Up to that date the regiment knew
nothing of tbe matter.
Lord Curzjn has determined to treat
all assaults upon natives as nutters of
great gravity, and with the object of getting to the root of the matter, a General
was sent from headquarters to conduct a
further investigation. At the conclusion
the General stated that It was hardly
fair to blame tbe regiment Individually,
and promised tc report as favorably aa
possible. He added, however, lhat the
Government had decided to punUh tbe
whole regiment if the culprit was not
found out, aod he appealed to tbe guilty
man to eome forward and save the regiment from puuisbment.
The appeal met with no response, and
during August tbe promulgation of the
punishment was made. It was a punishment of drastic severity, ft wae decided
that all officers, non-commissioned offi*
cars, and men on leave In India Bhould
be immediately recalled, and that no
further leave In or out of tbe country
should be granted till June 1,10P3, and
the disgrace brought upon the regiment
whb emphasized by the extraordinary
order that sentries should he plaeed on
all buildings occupied by tbe regiment
until tbe same date,
As a further punishment, it was also
•jtatid tbat tbe re.imenl would be debarred from service at the Delhi Durbar,
but owing to the fact that many Indian
veterans would be present wbo have
been associated with the regiment, it
was felt that this might be taken as a
personal affront to tbem, and to the force
whiuh served at Delhi during the mutiny.
This part of the punishment was, there
lore, withdrawn, and the regiment will
take Its place among the troops lo be
represented at the Coronation Durbar.
This wholesale punishment aud disgrace have naturally caneed much sore:
uesB in the regiment, the \).h Lancers
possessing a name and reputation second
io none.
The whole matter Is to be brought be
fore the House of Commous.
VALUE OF TEXAS OIL,
Geoligical Survey Says Field Equals
Russia.
Wttshiugtini, Oct. 'li), — The Texas*
Louisiana oil liuld is discussed txlmuet-
ively In a report of the United Statte
Geological Survey. The exiateuce of petroleum iu the Gulf Coast plain, which
extends Inland for ll)i) miles, has been
known as far back as I860. The report
says the extreme poroBity of Spindle Top
oil rock favors the storage of a very Urge
volume of oil aud a very large yield
when the reservoir is tapped. But it
also favors the early exhaustion of lhe
oil in tbe pool, and its rapid replacement
by the underlying Bait water. Beds of
sulphur-bearing rock are reported from
some of the wells on Spindle Top, and
beds of gyp.urn and of salt from others.
The conclusion is reached with regard to
the Spindle Top Held that the Spindle
Top rot-k contain*) about oue fourth of
its volume of oil, Kveu if the estimate
is oue barrel obtaiuej for every 26 cubic
feet for Spindlu Top, und a little Il*.b for
other fields, there should be a yield equal
to the Baku fields in Kuesia, nud it much
greater output than tlmt for all the other
American fields.
The rep-Jit saya that tbe apparent consensus of opinion amongst chemists who
have examined the field is thst Ihe
Gulf petroleum is uneuited for the production of illuminating.oil, and that it
is douhiful if it can be made to yield a
lubricating oil on a cumtneieial bat is,
Its value as a sort of asphalt and us a
gas oil ure as yet undetermined. Tho
experiments seem to establish UjiIj its
availability and ita economy as a generator of steam. Whether the Beaumont
petroleum may be eut-cesefully used in
metallurgical processes ie nut yet eet-
tled.
Bernadottc's Tattoo.
This is a warning not to anticipate
destiny (remarks "Tatler"). Bernadolte,
when he became King of Norway, preserved a certain mystery about one nun
which he would never show. He would
never be bled,though that wasaluvorile
remedy of the day. Once, however, bin
doctor frightened him iuto BubmiUiuj*
to the remedy by telling him that it was
tbeonly way to save hie life. King
Bernadotte thereupon dismissed his attendants, swore tbe doctor to secrecy,
pulled up Mb sleeve, aud there tattooed
on the arm was a Cap of Liberty and
the lords" Mort mix Hois" (death to
kings). When he adopted this motto
be did not know that he would live to
be a king, The doctor kept the secret
till the King's death.
HOW TO GET RICH THROUGH
ADVERTISING.
John Wanamaker, tbe multi-millionaire merchant prince of Philadelphia
gaveae his opinion the other day, on
the subject of advertising, and no man
n the land can speak on that matter
with more authority;
There is ouly one way to advertise,
and that ie to hammer your name, your
location, your business, eo constantly, so
persistently, eo thoroughly, into the people's heads that if they walked in their
sleep tbey would constantly turn their
heads toward your store. The news*
paper is your best friend in spite of your
orilloiBin. It helps to build up the com*
munity which supports you. When the
day cornea that the newspapers are dead
the people are near tbe edge of the grave
witb no one to write their epitaph."

corner of French and First Avenue,

A Mascagni Snapshot.
Mascagni Is still making his triumphal
tour in Etstern cities. One critic, In
speakingofthecomposorof "Cavallerht,"
attending, a rehearsal, entd: "11 thero te
inspiration in colors, Slgnor Maecugui
should gratefully make his green waUfc'
coat a preferred creditor, lam prepured
to believe that the green waistcoat, bu*
hind which Uiom ieel.ro entrenched him-
self yesterday afternoon, while he con*
dueled a rehearsal ol 'Iris,' was the positive source of the potency he swayed over
hia three-score and odd musicians. It. wns
not Mascagni who coaxed wheedled, cajoled and, for aught I kuow, sworo tbe
reluctant weft and woof of diucord into
agreeable harmony. No, his green
waistcoat was the power animating the
baton. Enter the green waistcoat, bring.
ing with it Mascagni;» warm, perspiring
Mascagni, fiery-eyed and eager, emitting
snorts of impatience through a short
n*se, a business-like nose—such a noee
as finds Its counterpart in the abbrerln*
ted smokestack of a big express locomotive. Whoof! Whom! Heralded hy
cautionary snorts from the short uot<e,
the green waistcoat shuttles back and
forth through tbe throng. So the rehearsal began.

FUNNY STORIES.
"Say, pa," began little Willie again,
'•why—''
''Now see here," his pa interrupted,
"I told you I wouldn't answer any more
questions. Let this be the last now.
What is it?"
"I jest wanted to know, pa, why you
don't answer my questions. Is it 'cause
you're ignorant, or jest 'cause yer indi-
goation'scomeon?"
A Boston lawyer wae recently exainin-
in," an Irish witness iu a suit arising out
of a tramway accident. Here is the result of the lawyer's suggestion that Ihe
witness should toll the story in his own
words—"Well, ibe man fell in th' Btr-
met as th' car-r passed; thin th' car-r
snapped,'an' we all ran out. Tbe cr*rowd
gathered ar-round th* man au' shouted
-'He's kilt I He's kilt.' Thin Oi jumped
in, pulled a dozen of tbe spalpeens out
nv ih' way, and yells at 'em—'Yes thick
heads, jess! If th' man's kilt, why in
hivvln's name don't yez stand to wan
tide an' let him have a breath of uir-i ?"
When you have a disagreeable duty to
perform it is best to do it at once and
get IlofTyour mind. Another good way
is to get somebody to do it, for you.

NUBSERY NOTES.
As tho hoys grow up innUo coiuptin-
lone ot them. Then thoy will uot sock
companionship olsowbei-o.
Bour In mind that you are largely responsible tor your child's Inherited
character and havo patlcuco with
faults and failings,
There are muny permanently deaf
persons whose affliction bus bocu
brought on hy boxing the cars, and the
practice should be carefully avoided
by parents.
Thin, nervous children should by all
means have their hair kept short, and
lt is well tor tho hair of all children to
bo kept nt n length that facilitates the
proper cleanliness and cure.
Try to sympathize with girlish flights
of fancy even If they seem absurd to
you. By so doing you wlll retain your
influence over your daughters und net
tench them to seek sympathy else
where.
Remomber that each human being to
bo healthy requires so many cubic feet
of olr, and lf your nursery ls stuffod
up witb curtains and hnnglngs and
clothes behind the doors and cardboard
boxes, etc., the air cannot circulate
freely, nnd thc result is unfavorable
both to child aud nurso.

sewer gas from tbe kitchen of which

"Whenever you have black coffee
left in the pot do not throw It into tbo
