jbrated Uorutun phytician haa been

succeeded ln identifying the germ of
cattle diseuses and of consumption.
His remarkable discoveries led to

on this investigation he discovered
tho coma bacillus ol cholera, receiving a roward ol 100,000 marks trom
the government. Further researches

CHICAGO, Mar. 10— Twenty-eight medical students of the University of Chicago are facing suspension because one of their number threw a piece of a human leg from the dissecting room at a
divinity professor. The professor complained to President Judson
who asked lor an explanation.
Urs.-Wilson and Harvey, wbo are ia charge of a section in anatomy, uuestiuned the class of 28 students yesterday, but they
were unable to obtain a confession from anyone. The professors
then informed thom that they were ail liable to suspension. Tbe
class examinations begin today a d the 28 students will not be allowed to take them. No credit wll. be given them for ths three
months' course in anatomy.
The guilty student is declared to have been willing to confess
and tako tne consequences, but ths othor members of the class refused to let him do so.
OMAHA, Neb., Mar. 10— An unknown anarchist today entered the
Merchants' Bank and demanded a
large sum of money. He displayed
bottle bellovsd to contain nitroglycerine, and threatened to blow up
the bank if hia request was not complied with.
Dy a ruse on the part of the tank
officials, the anarchist was arrested
by dstectlves who slipped up behind
the stranger, pinioned his arms and
relieved him of his bottle before he
know what was happening. He was
then removed to the police station.
There he refused to talk. The bottle
was sent to a chemist for analysis.

London, Mar, 10.—Owing to tho
absence of King .Edward and Queen
Alexandra from London, there was
no celebration today of their majesties' forty-fourth wedding anniversary. Numerous messages of congratulation were conveyed to theni,
however, by mail and telegraph.
Albert Edward, Prince of Wales
(Bow King Edward VII.) married
Alexandra, the eldest daughter of
the late King Christian IX., of Denmark, in St, George's Chapel, Windsor, Mur. 10, 1808. He was thon
23 yoars old, and she was 10. Now
he Is 07 and she Is 05.

Kelowna Boys Put up a  Uood Camo
Against Home Boys.
It wub a pretty game that the
boys from Kelowna put up against
the homo boys on the sports ground.
Clearly the men from the distant
Okanagan Volley know the game,
and, with training ami practise, they
should Ue able to put up a due exhibition of succor. It has to re re-
inenibered that their game at Victoria on tiuturduy wus their lirst of
tho season. Kelowna is still held in
the grip oi icy winter, and practically they ure ouly ablo to get out and
play at about the time the season
here is ending. .Naturally on Saturday they were out of condition and
ull thoir game. Then they played
on Sunday and again on Monday, so
that they could not bo expected to
shuw their best form last night.
Tlio wonder is, under all tho circumstances, that tho boys performed
as well us they did. They put up
a respectuble exhibition and played
a very clean, gentlemanly game. At
their best they would never be a
mutch for tho champions, but it is
easily conceivable that thoy could
mako either the home or the Nanaimo  tenuis travel.
The score lust night wus ii to I,
tiie same us in Nunuimo. In an
extra flve minutes which was played
to give tho home boys practise, A-
dums scored again, but tho goal was
in the nature uf a nuke, und due
more to a fault in tho ground, than
to deadly   shooting.
Tho local champions played with
the wind in the lirst hull' und put up
a very indifferent porforiuuuee. Sanderson scored in tho first few minutes, and for some time aftor tho
gamo was' as dead as stule beer.
However, lt quickened up, and in
tho second half was vigorously cot,
tested. The visitors defended stoutly and they have u wuudorful cus-
tudinn In Davis, and a powerful
''ight back in Hudson. Tholr center and1' left halves are also goad
mon; but their wingers ore rather ineffective.
Altogether, it was a pleasant contest and the two champion , teams
will cherish agreeable memories of
their meeting.

'decided at once, and the Citizen's
.League is instituting a canvass ol
tbe city in .order tu ascertain,the
will and wishes of the people on the
matter;   *"
Tbe great bogey h tlie way of Municipal enterprise is the necessity of
borrowing money. There, are people
ia the town who roundly declare
that tbey will never vbCe for a dollar loan. -This is merely idle and
foolish . talk. _. If it, can bo shown
that ths city can operate a profitable enterprise then the' people who
vote against lt are taking 'money
out of their own pockets. This is
the duy of Municipal enterprise.. The
[world over, big cities'have been buying out private companies' and ' corporate monopolies- ami acquiring' the
ownership of public utilities. Almost
(without exception the change in ownership has worked out to the advantage of tlie rate payer and it
stands to reason that the benefits
.will be greater where thero is no
buying out to tio. Muyor Nicholson
at the last meeting of the Citizen's
{League, reported what the people of
Kamloops were doing. . We beljeve
that in New Westminster also they
have a municipal plant' which is equally as satisfactory. The figures
and data from these and other cities
are all available, and will be
tied to surge round the Nanaimo
goal and Shepherd saved thrice in
quick succession.

Ex-Resident    of Alberni it the Subject of Newapaper Maa'a Attention— Heroism in North.
Down from the North comet another of tht fine stories of love and endurance that land to the silent northern placet such warm human Interest, says a Winnipeg correspondent.
The story it ont of an ex-resident
of Alberni, Jesse P. Galbratth, who
will bs remembered by old timers of
this community, says the Alberni
Pioneer-News. He brought hit sick
wife into Dawson City from the Dundee district In a dog sled—a distance of nearly 200 miles.
Mrs, Galbratth become seriously ill
and medical attention was urgent,
but there waa no doctor in the remote camp. Galbratth was not the
man tp bo overcome by a few obstacles, and securing the best team
of dogs tn the camp, placed his wife
In a basket sled and with a crack
of tho whip was off on his long journey before daylight. The flrst day
out they mods sixty miles. It was
fairly good trail but nothing com
fortoble or enjoyable for a woman
suffering the pangs of illness. The
dogs did nobly and trotted along for
most of tho dlstanco. The streams
they came to were running water. At
Clear Creek the water waa a foot
and a half deep nnd two hundred
feet wide and thero was no way to
make the crossing but swim tho
The intrepid mustier wrapped his
wife carefully ln canvas and mado
the binding io that the virtually wos
la a large canvas bog. Then at
govt the dogs the lath and they
started for the opposite shore while
Galbratth waded behind. Tho team
did its work faithfully and came out
on the other bank panting and almost exhausted but soon had their
breath and were again hot-footing it
down the trail.
Between MeUuenten and lllghet the
government trail waa used and had
it not been for the cutting of this
trail there would havt been no way
of getting to Dawson, and a doath
would havt to be recorded because of
ths Isolation of the Dundee district
at that particular season. Through
the heart of a deep forest this new
government trail pastes, winding
long tht foothills und among tht
gulches and creeks, and It wat while
Passing through this remote wilder-
that Mr. and Mrs. Galbratth

The dogs were not allowed to tarry
then and scarcely . needed the warning of the drlvor and the sufferer to
urge them on.
Tht second day another 80 miles
wero made and Dominion Creok was
reached. From thore to Dawson the
road was good and the sufferer reach
od medical aid In time to save her
life, aftor several weeks In the hos-
pltnt of thot city.
Such Instances are of frequent oc
