ONE TICTORY,
ONE DEFEAT
Lord Kitchener Reports Two
Small Engagements to
War Office.
Small Detachment of Knox's
Gommand Suffers Severe Losses.
London, Jan. 7.���Reporting to the
War Oflice, under date of January Oth.
Lord Kitchener says: "Yesterday
Babbington engaged Delarey's and
Steen-Kamp's commandos at Nanuw-
poort. The enemy was forced to retire to the northwest. Our casualties
have not yet been received but are reported slight. A Boer doctor admitted
that twenty Boers were killed and
wounded. Commandant Dupres was
taken prisoner. It appears from re-
poits of the wounded who have arrived at Heiibron that a detachment, 120
strong,belonging to Knox's commnnd,
came into contact with a superior
force near Llndley. I regret to say
that Lieutenant Laing, two other
officers and fifteen men were killed
and two offloers and twenty men
wounded* No details have come from
Knox of this action. "
London, Jan. 7.���The Cnpe Town
correspondent of The Times, who confirms the reports of the multiplicity of
the Boer commandoes says: "Nearly
five-sixths of the British troops are
employed to guard the lines of communications and to garrison towns,
leaving a very small number, partly
unmounted, to pursue the enemy.
Large re-inforc'eineiits are advisable
and these would be cheaper in the end.
Tbe damage which the liners did to
the Kleinfontein mines is officially
estimated at ��910,000."
London, Jan. ".��� In a letter to The
Times this morning, the Earl of Dun-
raven, emphasising the "very grave
situation in South Africa," warns the
country to distrust the opinions of experts on the spot and to be ready for
the unexpected. He complains of the
"inertia of the authorities" and urges
the necessity of large reinforcements.
HATRED OF FOREIGNERS.
It is Engendered Through Matter in
Native Newspapers.
Tucomu, Wash., Jan.7.���The steamship Tacoma brings news from Hong
Kong that the American Consul at
Canton has required the viceroy of
Kwang Tung to suppress several seditious native newspapers which were
being circulated through Canton ad.
vising the nutives to rise against foreigners. Some objection was made
when the Consul first protested. He
pointed to the const defence vessel
Monterey, lying in the harbor, as evidence that his wishes must be respected. The viceroy then gave orders to suppress the papers i.nd to arrest anyone found selling them, The
present serious situation in Cnnton is
regarded as being largely inilucnced
by these papers. Everywhere is the
strong undercurrent of hatred to foreigners,
LOOKS MUCH BRIGHTER.
Affairs of London and Globe in Bettor
Condition Than Expected.
New York, Jan. 7.���The reconstruction of the London and Globe Finance
Corporation, says a Tribune cablegram from London, now seems probable as a result of the recent flurry in
the mining market and the failure of
sixteen or twenty operators. A
scheme of re organization has been
accepted in principal by thirty-nine
creditors of the corporation, and Lord
Duilerin,wlien a meeting of the shareholders shall be held, this week probably, will be enabled to present a more
favorable statement of liabilities and
assets, than has been expected.
request that Weinstock should not u.
lynched while she lives summary justice would have been meted out to
him. Tbe constable who took Weinstock to the jnil at MeConnellsville
drove 50 miles around about to avoid
lynching parties that had been organized. Weinstock made a written confession, Saturday, in which he said:
"I don't know why I did it. I
wanted to kill her. I have no excuses
to offer for the crime,and if they want
to kill me they eau. "

CRUSADE IN NEW YORK.
An Old Time Gambler Gives Bishop
Potter Assistance.
New York, Jan. 7.���Allegations
are made hero this morning by The
Herald in effect that confession has
been made thnt vice in this city has
been compelled to pay over five million dollars annually for protection.
The newspaper says: Startling revelations regarding the system of blackmail levied upon vice and crime in
this city have been made by a man
who has long had prominence as a
successful gambler. His story, which
is in the nature of a voluntary confession, has been told to W. N. K. Tel-
eott, former district attorney. Proofs
have been furnished and more will be
forthcoming if demanded.    .
ANOTHER ST. HELENA.
Filipino Rebels Will He Prisoners on
the Isle of Guam.
Manila, Jan. 7.���General MscArth-
ur has ordered the deportation of
Generals Ricarte Del Pilar, Hizon,
Llanera and Santos to the Island of
Guam. Nine regimentals and four subordinate officers with eight civilians,
including Trias, Tecson and Ma-
bini, notorious assistants of the insurrectionists, have also been ordered
to be deported. It is General Mc-
Arthur's intention to hold most of
the active leaders of the rebellion who
huve:'been eaptured in Guam until

Winnipeg Clergymen Think They
W'int More of It.
Winnipeg, Jan. 7.���High representatives o' the Anglican Catholic and
Presbyterian Churches are considering representations that there is not
sufficient religious teaching in the
public Behools. About 10 years ago
the Provincial school act was changed, making the schools secular and allowing only certain portions of the
Scripture to bo read, and this at the
option of the school boards. There
is a growing feeling among the heads
of the leading churches that religious exercises have been too much
curtailed and neglected. The Catholics and many of the Anglicans and
Presbyterians are pronounced In criticism. It was the Green way Government which carried through the present school act while the present Premier, Mr. Roblin, was strongly opposed
to it. Any attempt, however, to Introduce changes will meet with tremendous opposition in all parts of the
Province.
PENSIONS FOR CANADIANS.
Ottawa, Jan. 7.���The Minister of
Militia has received a cablegram from
ilon. Joe Chamberlain stating that
tho question of pensions for widows
and children of non-commissioned officers und men is being considered by
the committee. Widows and descendants of Canadian soldiers, who died
through war, are eligible for grants
from the Royal Patriotic Fund.
BIRTHRATE IS DECREASING.
New York, Jan. 7���A well known
European statistical] contributes an
interesting article to The Daily Mall
on the question of European birthrate
during the last quarter of a century,
says The Tribune's London correspondent. He conclusively proves that
England is steadily falling behind her
great trade rival Germany in the all
important matter of reproduction of
the race and is gradually falling In
the dangerous tracks of France.

Large Shipments From the
Boundary Country for
the Past Year.
The Trail Board of Trade has passed the following resolution : There is
a great necessity for legislation to
protect ores and ore products, also to
make permanent the present good feel-
iag between miners and mine owners.
Therefore we hail with pleasure the
proposed Parliamentary commission
on mining in Canada. We would respectfully ask tbat in the makeup of
the commission there may be at least
one member from Southern British
Columbia, and if such appointment be
made, this Board presents with unanimity the name of G. O. Buchanan of
Kaslo, B. 0., for that position.
R. Randolph Bruce, M. E., has an
exceedingly high opinion of the future of the Windermere district from
a mining point of view. He states
that from Horse Thief over to Toby
Creek there is a zone of about four
miles square, which gives every
promise of turning out a great mineral section. It embraces the Paradise, Silver Belt, White Cat, McDonald Group, and a number of other
well-known properties.
All the Boundary mines for the year
1900 shipped ' 103,723 tons of ore, according to figures carefully compiled
by the Phoenix Pioneer. The Phoenix branch of the C. P. R. received
04,918 tons of this. The Miner-Graves
group contributed 70,800 tons. All
the ore was treated at the Grand
Forks and Trail smelters. The Pioneer  predicts   that   the  shipments for
1901 will be half a million tons.

ALL CANDIDATES
ARE ENDORSED
Fletcher Men Like Those Already In the Aldermanlc
Field.
Contests In Each Ward Appear to Be Likely,
However.
The supporters of Frank Fletcher,
the next Mayor of Nelson, met in tbe
Fletcher committee looms on Saturday
night and endorsed the aldermanic
candidates now in the field. They
are; West Ward���Harold Selous,
John Hamilton, Thomas Madden;
East Ward, William G. Gillett, John
Patterson, John A. Irving. It is
quite probable, however, that there
will be one or two additional nominations in each ward. It appears that
Aid. Irvine is not going to be allowed
to remain out of the field in the West
Ward as there is considerable disatis-
factlon with the present ticket there.
Nominations do not occur until next
Monday and further developments
are expected by that time.
Shorthand is like cocoa and beef extract, In that new brands of it are
constantly appearing, each claiming
superiority over its rivals. Tho latest shorthand inventor claims for his
system that it is International. People now learn shorthand for their own
practical use, he says, and whereas
in the older systems stress was laid on
rapidity at the cos): of clearness and
legibility, modem systems lay more
stress on clearness.. In the new system a short and easily written symbol
is assigned to each sound, and once
the alphabet is learned there is no
more to learn. There are no special
rules, and the system can be adopted
to any European language. This
seems to lead the way to a shorthand
Utopia. i
At a recent sale of effects In W1b-
bech, Cambridgeshire, England, a
large oil painting was bought by Mr.
G. E. Stockdale for 820. The painting which was dirty and black, was
sent away to bo restored and for the
frame to be gilded. After being cleaned, it was found to be a very valuable
painting, evidently of Norman execution, depicting a band of warriors
making a demand on archbishops.
Mr, Stockdale has already been offered 83,000 for it.
Tbe Miner has received the   following letter in regard to  the municipal
oampaign:
Editor Miner:
Sir.���There never has been a time
in the history of Nelson when more
care should be exeroised in the choosing of candidates for Aldermanic honors. There are in the field now just
six men all of whom will be elected
by acclamation if no others are nominated. Some of these six men would
make good aldermen ; one of two of
them would.be useless in any executive capacity and should not be elected. In the West Ward there is need
of another candidate. There are three
in the field there, it is true, but one
of these three should never be permitted to gain a seat in the council.
He is lacking in every quality necessary for the office. It is argued that
he would be perfectly harmless and
this is probably true. It is men of
action we want, however, men who
know what the City needs. These
harmless Individuals were better left
at home. Let the West Ward electors
insist upon Aid. Irvine again serving
them. He has made a good alderman
and has become of value to the City.
In addition to this he is no mans's
tool, acting always upon his own
good judgment. With him in the field
as the fourth man the "harmless candidate" would be out of the way. Another candidate or two in the East
Ward would do no harm. It would
make a contest there and the people
who are dissatisfied with the present
tioket would have an opportunity of
voting for men more to their liking.
If the six mon already in the Held
are elected by acclaraution Nelson need
not expect big tilings from its Council during the first year of the now
century. Let the electors wake up.

NEWS OF THE MINES.
Mr. Thomas McGregor, managing
director of the American Boy Mining
Co., operating the American Hoy
group, situated on Noble Five Mountain in the Slocan district, is iu tho
City today. He Btates that the country is looking good and that prospects
for the coming season, Indicate that
there will bo a much larger output
than ever before in the history of the
camp. On the American Hoy group
tbe company have a force of 35 men
engaged and will undoubtedly increase
this number next month. At present
the force is working upon No. (1 tunnel. This tunnel is In on the vein
about 400 feet and when the line of
the Last Chance gioup is reached, a
depth of about 1,150 feet will have
been obtained. The vein averages
from sis to twelve feet while the pay
streak averages from one to four feet.
Regular shipments of 100 tons per
month are being made, and give nn
average of about 8U0 per ton in silver
and lead values. The company expects that from next month on it will
be  able to   ship  over   200  tons  per
'month. The Last Chance group Is
situated nearby this property and the
work there is being   pushed   rnpidly.
j About   70  men are  being    employed
at present and the regular shipments
of about 20 cars per month are being
made. In the same vicinity is situated the Ajax group and on this considerable development is being done.
During the development they have
encountered several small ore shutes
containing ore of very good values.
The Slocan Soveielgn, operated by
a Montreal company, is also in this
district, and during the past season
the property showed up well. It is
now making regular shipments. The
force of men which numberB about 20,
iB engaged in stoping,and at present a
large quantity of ore is in sight. They
expect to make larger shipments during the winter. On this same mineral
belt, but further east, is situated the
Reco and Goodenough groups. Both
of these are showng up well and of
late very good ore has been encountered. East of these again is the Trade
Dollar and Sunset groups. Each of
these properties is shipping about a
ear per week, and   the   returns   show
thut the ore nets about 81.100 per car.

On New Year's day an excellent
strike was made on the Blue Bell, in
Sulimit Camp, of which John Dorsey

feet in depth, and consists of from
four to six feet of as fine ore as has
ever been found in Summit Camp.
The Blue Bell adjoins the Mountain
View on the north.
Work wbb only recently started on
the Blue Bell, which with the J. S.
claim, was bonded for 867,000 to John
Dorsey, representing a snydicate of
Chicago capitalists. A company was
organized known as the Lake Shore
and B. C. Copper Mining Development
Co., with a capital of 81,000,000.
The new Btrike has been examined
by a number of mining men,who pronounce it something out of tbe ordinary.

February, it had up to December 17,
shipped 1(1,000 tons of ore, and development work amounting to about 3,000
feet, consisting of drills, shafts, etc.,
has beendone. The North Star Btands
today as one of the best mines on the
American continent, and as yet the
extent of the ore body Is unknown.
It is mines like the North Star, Sullivan and St. Eugene that are telling

How Oom Paul Kruger Is to
Visit the  United
States.
Will Come Over In February
With  the  London
Editor.
to
New York, Jan.    7.���A   dispatch
The Journal and Advertiser says:
It is almost certainly decided that
Mr. Kruger will go to America in
FeDruary, probably accompanied by
William T. Stead, who will make
a ringing campaign in behalf of stopping the war. The Journal correspondent saw Mr. Stead just before he
left for Paris in company with John
E. Milholland, who bore an invitation
from prominent New Yorkers to
Mr. Kruger to visit America. While
in Paris they will see the leaders of
the arbitration movement in Europe
and decide definitely on plans. Mr.
Stead said:
"The time has come for President
Kruger to play his trump card nnd
boldly declare his intention to visit
President McKinlcy in order to plead
with him the cause of independence
of the 8outh African Republics. Mr.
Kruger is looked at askance in Germany and Austria, because he is the
president of a republic, but he thinks
this will not be regarded as a disqualification for his reception by the president of the greatest republic in the
world. He does not believe the American Government is indifferent to tho
war the Boers are waging agarnst the'
British monarchy. If he goes Tit
America he will go as a president to
visit a president. He will probably
arrive in New York in the middle of
February.
"The state of his health Is not regarded as likely to deter him from
crossing the Atlantic. He had believed the voyage would take a fortnight
and is much pleased to hear he could
make It in seven days.
"His movements somewhat depend
upon the health of the czar, who is
now quite well, and had intended to
return to St. Petersburg on January
23, but influenza has broken out on
the Neva and is it a dangerous malady for those just recovering from typhoid. The czar will probably go to
Tsarskee Selo. If President Kruger
went to Russia lie would have a bu-
perb reception, and at every station
iu Germany between the Dutch and
Russian frontiers he would receive
ovations."
A meeting for the purpose of electing offioers of tbe Ladles Aid of the
Congregational Church will be held at
the church at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. Other business will come
before the meeting and a full attend-
' anoe ot tbe members la requested-
FOLEY SUCCESSFUL.
Said to Have Secured the Chinese
Coinmissionershlp.
Ottawa, Jan. 7.���E. J. Clute and
D. J. Munn, who have been here for
thu past few days, huve been holding
conferences with the Government In
regard to mutters affecting the Chinese commission. It Is about as good
as settled thnt Mr. Chris. Foley of
Rossland will get tho place of Ralph
Smith on the commission. After this
has been done work will be proceeded
with at once.
This is the very latest quip of which
the self-exiled uuthor of the "Gentle
Art of Making Enemies" has delivered himself. One of Mr. Whistler's art
students at the schools iu Paris the
other day asked the master very seriously if he thought thut she might
paint nuturc exactly as be saw her.
Mr. Whistler very promptly replied:
"Thcie is no eartnly reason why you
should not paint nature exactly as
you see her, so long my dear lady,
as you do not see nature exactly as
you paint her!"
Lord Rosebery's latest biographer,

WHAT IS   AN IMMIGRANT?
The preamble to an Act passed last
year by the British Columbia Legislature takes notice of the fact that the
British North America Act giveB power and authority to the Provinces to
make laws in relation to immigration. Assuming from this, therefore,
that the Legislature of this Province
may regulate immigration into it, an
Act was passed providing that no person should be admitted into the Province who did not successfully pass a
certain prescribed educational teat.
That test requires the immigrant to
write out and sign, in the characters
of some European language, an application to the Provincial Secretary to
tbe effect of a certain schedule appended to the Act. It is unlawful to
admit any person who cannot pass
this test, and tbe Act provides that
officers shall be appointed to see tbat
any person or corporation transgressing the law shall be punished. Tbe
penalty is a fine of five hund.-ed dollars, or imprisonment in default.
The Act came into force on the first
day of the present month. The officers under the law have been appointed, and regulations published for the
better carrying out of its provisions.
Warning is given that it will be
strictly enforced.
We doubt, however, if it will be.
It is aimed, of course, against Chinese
and Japanese. Under the constitu
tion these cannot be specially exclud
ed by Act of the Provincial Legislature, and to reach them it was
thought to be expedient to apply the
provinona of the law to all persons indiscriminately. But the high authorities of a Province will learn, if they
do not already know, that they cannot afford to trifle with the law, and
if applied to one class of offenders it
must be applied to all. Individuals
may be as partial and discriminating
and unreasonable as they please, but
the law cannot be twisted and turned
in order to make fish of one nnd Hush
of another. Thut will never do. The
law as it stands must bo enforced
against all transgressors of it or
against none. To enforce it against
all would raise such a commotion that
in a short time the authorities at
Victoria would not know whether
they were stunding on their heels or
their heads.
What is an immigrant'.1 Is any person who comes into the Province from
any point beyond its boundaries an
immigrant? The fact that the British North America Act recognisei tho
right of each Province to regulate
immigration into It must be taken to
assume that such is the case. A per-
en, therefore, living in the adjoining
Territory of Alberta,and who moves to
British Columbia, is an immigrant,
who aomes under the provisions of tho
Act in question and is to govern himself according to them. The officers
of the law cannot admit him until be
has passed the prescribed test, and If
he cannot pass It he must submit to
the penalties or be denied all rights
of cltl/eiishlp. Should the C. P. R.
Company assist suoh Albert'* Immigrant to evade the law, by bringing
him into the Province without undergoing tbe test, it will be liable to a
fine of flvo hundred dollars. To en-
foroe the Aot It will he nccimnry to
station officers at points on the Crow's
Nest and Nelson and Fort Sheppard
railways, who will require oil strangers coming into the Province to write
and sign the necesnary application.
How long docs anyone suppose such a
crazy law as that can be upheld?
right to the best of his judgment. He
is not narrow ; his efforts will not be
sectional. He is broad enough to
take in Vancouver Island in his men
tal vision, and if an all.. north and
south railway on that Island appeals
to him as an enterprise in the general
interest of the people of this Province he can be depended upon to support it. Mr. Galliher will represent
British Columbia quite as much as he
will Yale-Cariboo, and in that he
will justify the good opinion of his
friends and satisfy the expectation* of
his opponents. We shall be glad if
thiB assnrsnee will in any way relieve the anxiety of our esteemed
contemporary   at   the    Capital.
Says The Victoria Colonist: "Mr.
II. M. i"nluuim raised a question at
the meeting of the Council of the
Board of Trade yesteiday as to whether Mr. Dunsninlr would have the cooperation of the members from British
Columbia in asking for a subsidy for
a railway to the north end of the Island. Tho Colonist cannot answer
for Mr. Galliher, but It feels it can do
so for the five other* who represent
Ihe Province In tbe House of Commons." The Miner did not want Mr.
Galliher elected, but it has pleasure
In saying tbat it   believes be will do'
In Toronto, The Globe of that city
���ays "the water users were paying
too much, and the surplus was being
used to reduce the general taxation)
wbioh was clearly unfair." In Nel
son the electric light as well as water
msrs are paying a stiff enough priee
to yield surpluses, which are being
used to leduce the general taxation,
which, according to Mr. John Houston, is dearly all right. In a hundred years or so Nelson will realise
what a fool town it has been to listen
to a man whose knowledge of munici
pal economy, as of most other things,
Buffered a severe blight in an early
period of its growth.
Lord Kitchener has not been sleeping, and affairs in South Africa are
not oat of hand. DeWet and the oth
ers can make their raids���there is
nothing so very alarmingly clever in
that; but he and they will find then
selves in the toils before their wild
course is much longer run. We may
deplore the casualties that are result
inj, but at no time since Lord Kitoh
ener took command has theie been
cause for anxiety. Everybody under
stood that guerilla warfare was possi
ble, if the Boers chose to engage in it,
and being possible that which has
happened followed as a matter of
course. To protect such a country
against guerilla bands from the very
outset would require three or four
times tbe forces that are in tbe field.
It takes time to round up those bands,
but the good work is progressing and
nnder skilled directions.

AN   INNOCENT LIE.
"But what is the use?"
"The use! Decidedly y0u are not
up in fine little psychological points.
The charm in a lie, in a true lie, is
precisely that it is useless. A lie is
its own reward, ils own pleasure.
What use? As though A nselm-Cousin Anselm, you know���had been
influenced by any motive tho day he
benevolently invited us to help eat his
famous rabbit! You, of course, remember Anselin's rabbit?"
To tell the truth, I did not remeui
ber it all. My interlocutor was a southerner from the far south, a liar from
excess of imagination und skeptical.
as oil liars are, for they believe
only in their own 1'es. lie is au
agreeable talker, however, and his
fancy gallops so gayly along that his
tongue haB difllculty to keep pace
with it.
He begins a story, forgets it and
suddenly replaces it with another. So.
without occupying my mind any further with the subject on which we
started, I prepared to listen to the
adventures of Cousin Anselm and his
rabbit.
"You don't'seem to recall it. Well,
never mind. It wus one clay last
year. I had risen early, as is the
bablt of all our shopkeepers, and sold
nothing. I was standing on the door
step with you or someone else deciding about the weather when Anselm
went by and said, 'How do you like
rabbit cooked?'
" 'I love it potted, with a groat
deal of thyme and wild thyme,' I re
piled, and I think I said a bit of
orange peel as big as a nail.
" 'Good! It just happens that I
was looking for you to ask you to
eat some potted rabbit with me at the
Bastion.'
"Potted rabbit at the liasticn!
"Those words alone made my mouth
water. One Is so comfortable there,
far from one's wife,for the meekest of
men in our town would defend this
peaceful refuge wilh Mohammedan
ferocity against an invasion of Ihe
other sex. The only room serves as
both dining room and kitchen, and
oue can sit and watch his breakfast
simmer and the coals in the oven
glow, dim and die out with a last hot
flame while outside in the scraggy
pines of the slope a few parched grasshoppers oroak despairingly.
" 'When shall we eat our potted
rabbit���tomorrow'."
" 'What haste! Jesting aside, yesterday I visited the rabbit hutch, and
there is a mother who will have her
little ones in two days. It is a precocious breed, and we will date the
breakfast for five weeks from now.'
" 'Well, in five weeks,' said I, a
trifle set back. During these five
weeks I did not find leisure to forget
the rabbit.
"The next morning Anselm came to
bring the latest news.
"Six superb littlo rabbits have arrived���one especially, all gray, with
��� pink nose, already moved his cars
like his father and mother at the sight
of a  cabbage stalk.
"He was the one we would eat.
"Two days later It was another matter. The male, in a jealous fury,
had devoured his progeny. They had
to imprison him under a basket, with
a heavy stone on It.
"Three little rabbits had fallen
victims to this modern Sutui'ii, but
by a miraculous chance the gray one
with the pink nose had   been   spared.
"The next week Ansulm came with
a sad expression and said thai, three
such string and healthy little ones
exhausted the mother, nnd he should
have to Baoriflue two of them.
"He felt bad over it, but tho last
would profit the more thereby.
"From this time the remaining rabbit filled our lives. At the cafe or on
onr promenades Anselm talked only
of him, melting over his infantile
graces, relating his caprices, noting
his progress.
"More than once at the hour of departure for the pastures, when the
silent streets were awakened by tingling goat bells, Anselm knocked on
my window, crying,'While you are
lying snug lu your bud I shall ho
gathering the herbs our raliblt Is
fondest of���groundsel and blrdweed,'
and on leaving, to prove his seal, 'I
shall spread the hi rbs out in thu
sunshine a minute, for you know duw
Is deadly to tho rabbit.'
"In the vapors of my interrupted
sleep this rabbit appeared gigantic
to me.
"One morning tho rabbit escaped,
and Anselm, still much perturbed,
came to tell me about It. After some
hard running he had succeeded In
manuring him.
"At last Anselm announced that the
rabbit would be just right in a week.
The feast was set for Sunday. For
the remaining time the rabbit was to
have a ^ry regime���no moro herbs,
no greens, none of those water soaked
plants that make the flesh of rabbits

"Anselm wished to depart the first
of all at dawn and dispatch the victim
with a blow on the head classically,
then clean him and put him in the
pot.
"I was to come later at my ease
with two friends, who would help
me to carry tbe wine and other provision's. "
"Was the rabbit good?"
"Alas, my friend, this rare rabbit,
so fat, eo round, so sweet smelling
und daintily fed, never existed except
in Anschn's Imagination.
"I arose very early tbat Sunday
morning, and by accident I surprised
Anselm in Ihe a:t of buyiug a rabbit
of the meat vender.
"I have found since that Anselm
never possessed either rabbit hutch, or
rabbit, and it was solely for pleasure
that the good fellow had lied to me
for a month, adding each day a new
bead to his rosary of innocent deceptions."
"And what do you conclude?"
"Dear me! What with that rabbit
and Anselm I have forgotten the
point!"

IN TUE SIOUX   MASSACRE.
Terrible Sufferings in 1802 of  a Lady
Who nas Just Died in St. Paul.
(From the St. Paul, Minn., Dispatch.)
Mrs. Louise Schulze, one of the fortunate refugees of the massacre of
Heaver Creok during the Sioux Indian
outbreak of 1HIS2, died at her home,
001 Hastings Avenue, in this city,
today. Mrs. Schulze nurrowly escaped
being butchered in the massacre,
when the Sioux rose against the scattered outposts of civilization,and only
by luck or good judgment passed successfully through repeated dangers of
life and limb,while all around ber fell
dead by the bulletB of the merciless
savages.
She was married twice and came to
this country with her husbundln 1801.
After spending a short time at a temporary home in Wisconsin, they moved to Minnesota enrly in 18U2. and
took up a homestead in the neighborhood of Beaver Creek.
It was a hard life,but the early pioneers little dreamed of the danger that
would befall them. Kirs. Schulze and
her husband had uot been two months
in their new home when.the terrible
warwhoop of the Sioux descending In
overwhelmnlni*' numbers, maddened
with rage against the settler, and
with the bloodthirsty determination
to wipe out the white man from the
whole Sioux territory, Thirty families
worn laid Oold In death in one hamlet.
That was the whole population, for
the redskins believed they had murdered every white person in it.
Mrs. Schnlze's husband was stark
in death and sho had buen stab bud under tho heart by a savage who thought
he had Completed his work. She lay
unconscious for awhile, anil then, recovering, she crawled into a neighboring woods and lay there till night.
Then.under the protcellon of the darkness she returned to the desolate village to tin'! if strewn with the mutilated and disfigured corpses of friends
and neighbors, all she knew. Hut
she found two little children,intended
victims of the savages, who had been
shot and left for dead. Oue child had
a bullet lu Its head. Another nnd a
smaller infant, with a bullet In Its
shoulder,sho carried iu her arms. Two
weeks of seeking food and shelter ill a
wilderness was the story that follow
ed. Ill her wnnderingH, with the
two children, all three persons BullVr
ing from wounds, sho frequenlty had
to seek cover In the tall grass and
bushes, on the warning thut a group
of the redskins was approaching. Onco
they almost caught the little party
for'they followed t'lem until the high
grass cut olf the view of their hiding
place. Then tho savages llred repeat
ed volleys Into tin* undergrowth, but
good fortune carried thu bullets
wide enough of the mark for safety.
The woman and the two ohlldrun
sought food in thu untenanted houses
where had lived whltu persons. At
the end of the two weeks they wore
met and rescued by a party of soldiers
from Fort Siielling, and Mrs, Schulze
was the only living person competent
to tell the full story of the Heaver
Creek massacre. She was taken to
Fort Siielling, anil lived there until
18114 when she was married to her second husband, August Schulze. Mrs.
Schulzo was 88 years old, und Is survived by her husband.
THE VICTORIA CROSS.
The Winning of It Is Largely   a Matter of Luck.
A London despatch says: The re
turning volunteers and regulars bring
back a complaint with them against
what has been considered the choicest
possession of a Briton���even the Victoria Cross. The decoration is even
pronounced by some of them bluntly,
as unpopular. It is said that there is
a strong feeling against it among the
soldiers. They do not accuse any
officer or any department with award
ing it unjustly, but they condemn the
element of luck that eJters into the
awarding of it. They say that there
are numerous instances of heroic deeds
fully equul to those that secure tbe
Victoria Cross, and many surpassing
it in all the atributes of true courage
go un-rewarded. One general, it is
said, will report many such cases,
while another will report none at all.
Then the officers have a bard time to
secure it, as those under them do not
consider it the right thing for them
to rpport the heroism of their superiors, and they probably would not be
listened to if they did so and it is a
very difficult matter to perform a deed
worthy of decoration always under
the eye of the general in command.
The troops may see it but be does not,
and so one may get the Cross while
another of the same spirit and bravery   docs not secure recognition.
The war-worn veterans know of
many signal actions of courage and
determined bravery, and it is not sur
prising that they feel dissatisfied
when they find that none of these secure recognition.
Glasgow is earning for itself a
ghastly record. No less than 40 per
cent of the children in that city under
five years of age died during the fort
night ending November 1st. Three
fourths of these deaths are those of
girls. It appears to be pretty certain
that a huge system of child murder
has invaded the town. The common
Chinese custom of killing the girl in
fant has come very close to us.
The Whitehall Review says:    "It Is
an open secret that the Queen   consul
ers that not only Bhould a widow nev
er marry,   but that   she   should   not
go out of mourning.    Some   time   ago
a certain ladles' paper announced that
the Duchess of Albany has now  abandoned  her   half-mourning    and   was
wearing   bright    tones.     This     was
read to tbe Queen at Osborne.    Forth
with she ordered a telegram to be sent
to the Duchess to ascertain   if it   was
true.    The Duohess, however, was able
to    contradict     the     rumor.     Poor
Duchess."
The following is told of an American gentleman who was recently stopping with his wife at a London hotel.
On their first evening there he happened to retire somewhat later than
his spouse. Arriving at the door of
what he imagined to be his room, and
finding it locked he tapped and called
"Honey!" No answer eame, "Honey I" Still he got no reply, and becoming somewhat uneasy, he shouted
the endearing term with bis full lung
power. This time a reply came and
in a male voice, "Go away, you blithering idiot; this is a bathroom, not a
blooming beehive I"
A certain lasmanlan seaport is just
now a servant girl's paradise. There
the most incompetent servant can
command the best wages and choose
their mistresses at that. Recently the
cook at the local hotel, who was
drawing the not-to-be-dlspised wage
of ��2 a week, demanded a rise, und
when refused, immediately gave notice. At the end of the week, however, instead of departing with her
baggage, she merely moved to one
of the best apartments fn the
house, and as there was nothing
against her character she could not he
turned out. At mealtimes she sampled every dish, and audibly criticized
the cooking���done by the unfortunate landlady herself. This went on
for a week. Then flesh and blood
could stand it no longer, and the cook
moved to her op' room with a wage
of ��i.

THE TALK  OF THE TOWN.
The talk of the day in Monteal Is
tbe opening of the magnificent new
building erected on the best site of
the principal street by The Family
Herald and Weekly Star. The Family
Herald's contemporaries are paying
it the highest compliments. The new
building is said to be the finest newspaper building in the world. This is
saying a good deal for Canada. The
Family Herald and Weekly Star has
made gigantic strides.
"A Stitch in Time Saves Nine"
Take "The North-Western Line."
This is home made poetry, but every
word of it is true. It's "dollarts to
doughnuts" as the fellow said that
you will never take any other line af
ter one trial. When you come home
tell your friends all about it. The
undersigned will be glad to plan your
trip. Tickets at all agents. H. S.
Collins, General Agent Spokane.
