The .Nunuiino lleruld oa Wednesday

their one aim seemed to be to knock

nothing botter than old und idle and
indefinite hearsay, lt publishes a paragraph about Ladysmith, rejaixlless
of the harm it may work the city,

LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Nov. 24.—
Two tornadoes, ono north and one
southbound, swept over West Arkansas destroying many lives and milch
property. All means of eomuiunica>1
lion was destroyed and nothing tie-
linito hos so far been heard from the

tenmiles from Mulbury, where one of
the tornadoes did great damage. The
tornado also struck Walla Walla and
Dyer, small towns, doing great damage. Strips from two miles to half
a mile wide were swept clean in the
towns and open country.
From Knoxville a despatch was
received this morning which partially confirms the roport that Barr,
four miles trom that place, was totally wrecked. Section men who
wont to the scene, state tho entire
intermediate country has been laid
vaste by the wind and hail which
followod, the hail in some places
stand to a   depth of six inches.
Physicians ond nurses hastily made
up rel of parties and were sent from
Knoxville to both Borr and Plney.
OTTAWA, Nov. 21.—Chairman Parent, of the Transcontinental Railway Commission, said today: "If
any rojnitable journal, either at homo
or abroad, makes any charge against the honesty of tho commission, it
will be given on opportunity to prove
its charges in tho courts. 'I'he commission is lining its best to build
the railway honestly, and as economically as possible, and does not
propose qulotly to submit to oal-
umny and unwarranted criticism.
Tho commission alrondy has taken
stops to vindicate Its honor against
the London Times, and has asked
Charles Russell, Canndlan legal adviser in London to demand a retraction and apology from the Times."

Tommy Burns on 'December 2©t'h lu

"I have chased him out of America and London and Paris," ho remarked, "and now it sooms as if I

I won't he suro of him until the bell

Opposed to Jeffries
On being informed that Jim Jeffries had beon approached ond had
refused to referee tho contest, 'Johnson broke out indignantly: "What
would have been tho uso of that? I

Tommy Hums Replies.
On boing"; interviewed regarding
Johnson's statements Burns suid
that when ho met Johnson in Sydney on boxiug day he would give
him a complete answer.
lt was not truo that Johnson had
chased him all ovor tho world. In
New York Johnson hnd failed to cover £500 put up by him, and it was
tho same with £10110 posted with tho
National Sporting Club in 'London.
The fact thnt Mr. 'McTntosh had offered Johnson a largo sum and expenses to como to Australia was
surely a sufficient refutation of the
running away declaration.
Burns said he was going to work
hard for tho match with Johnson.
Mr. Mcintosh referring to Johnson's remarks concerning Jeffries
said that the latter hud boon asked
to referee becauso hd was the retired champion and had not boxed
with Johnson or Burns. He looked
on hlm as tho fairest, nblost and
best man for the position. The question of the referee now remained for
Burns and Johnson to decide. Tf no
agreement wns como to he, Mr. McTntosh would exercise his option. His
only desire wns to seo a fair nnd
straight match. He was personally
risking £0,000 ovor tho match, nnd

tho same for .luilro Wado, tho Jap;

bad boy' in the Philippines.
It is a big family, a wonderful
family. Behind tho family wo remember nothing; beyond the family
we seo nothing. There is nothing
but the family, We are born, we
live and die for tho family. The family gives us our colossal strength
ond perpetuity. It gives us also

In reference to the Hindus in British Columbia, the following appears
in today's Colonist:
It will be remembered that Mr.
Harlan was sent to Honduras at the
instance of the Dominion government
to see whether tho plan suggested by
Lord Strathcona of transferring the
surplus Hindu population ot British
Columbia to that country was teas-
ble and ho wus accompanied by two
Sikhs, tho representatives of the local colony. His mission has been
heraldod in the press ns a complete
success and it has been asserted that
a large contingent of the Sikhs arc
going to Honduras as soon as the
necessary arrangements aro complet
Unfortunately it appears that the
wish has been father of the thought.
The Sikhs cannot he compelled to
go, and, acting on the advice of
thoir leaders, they have decided to
remain where they are. The Sikh
delegates who wont to Honduras are
stated on good authority to have
given a very unfavorable report of
the land to their compatriots. In the
first place they say that they were
treated with scant courtesy, and in
fact practically ignored in the conferences with the llonduran officials,
as to the terms on which the immigrants should come, and other matters of grave importance to their
'They say that at the conference in
Honduras they were asked one or
two-questions as to what the Sikhs
ate, and thcir cost of living generally, and were then told to retire from
the room, which they did with great
indignation. They claim, however,
to have met a number of Sikhs who
had spent several years in the country. Theso are said to have given
a most discouraging account, and
to have begged for enough money to
get out of the place, saying that
they had nover been able to got en-
lf ough ahead. They also claimed that
the climuto was very deadly to na
tives of India on account of its ina
larial qualities.
As the upshot of all this the Stkb
delegates came back determined tbat
if they could prevent it, nono of
their countrymen should go to Honduras, and since thsn efforts havo
beeu made to notify all that they
cannot be compelled to go, and that
if they ure wise they will refuse to
leave. In order to clinch the matter
mass meeting of Sikhs has been
called in Vancouver for Sunday noxt
when it is expected that at least a
thousand of the turbaned ones will
be present. The delegates will give
nn account of what thoy saw in Honduras, and those who are In touch
with the men have no hesitation in
saying that the result will be that
none of them will leavo British Columbia. Tho members of the Victoria colony are already on record
