Professor Harunoke in nn  Attempt  lo
Drown His Sorrow.
Berlin. Jnn. 7.���The strange, disappearance before Xnnts of Professor
Hnruuoke from the Hall University
iii Saxony, has been cleared np. The
professor, who was visiting relatives
here, over the holidays, was uot a
victini'of the proverbial absent minded-
uess of his profession, but fell into the
bunds of some sharpers, who learned
thai he had a large sum of money with
him. In one night tho professor lost
nearly all of his money, after which
he tried to drown his disgust in drink
and finally landed in a hospital under
an assumed name, Yesterday he snr-
pi'ised bis relatives and friends by re
turning "clothed nnd in his right
mind," minus several thousand thai
evs. nnd plus a vast amount of experience   of metropolitan eorruption.

Madrid, Jan. 7���At tho meeting this
evening of tho conservative club, Seller Silvela formally confirmed   the previously  reported   complete   agreement
between himself and General Polavieja
and made an important announcement
of the Conservative lolicy.   Senor Silvela said he recognized Senor Sagasta's
services   to   the   throne, but censured
the Premier's   policy   in Cuba and os-
peciallv his conduct regarding the war
between Spain nnd the  United States.
He   declared   that the   present   cortes
was morally dissolved and   suUI he believed that the fall of Sagasta was imminent,
The financial question, Senor Silvela
said be regarded us most important,
He favored a tax on all personal property, the increasing of indirect taxation and the effeoting of large economies in pensions; supported the
maintenance of the concordat with the
Vatican and advocated the re-organization of the Administration of Justice.
He favored the establishment of a
Ministry of Public Works and Corn-
morce.liaving control of posts an I telegraphs, and maintained the necessity
for giving a powerful impulse to the
industrial resources of the country.
Regarding foreign politics, Senor
Silvela held that Spain's geographical
position precluded Ihe possibility of
her becoming a teriitory governed by
foreigners adding :
"We must, therefore, re-organize
the army and navy, so as to be in a
position to defend Iho country in cuse
of necessity."
In conclusion Senor Silvela declared
that he did not believe he nor Sagasta
was desirous of retaining office.
The Cabinet will meet tomorrow
nnd Monday. Premier Sagasta will go
to the palace to notify   the Queen Re-

London, Jnn, 7.���All events seem to
work together   in    European   politics
to increase the tension between   Great
Britain and   France.    The past  week I
has   brought   Madagascar   and   ISgvpt I
forward as   when the   mutual   irrila
bility was  subsiding.    Even the most
conservative observers  begin to take a
pessimistic   view   of   the relation between the two powers.    This  includes
those who,   up   to  the   present,   hnve
considered tbe  belligerency to be mere
talk, duo   to   super-sensitiveness upon
the, part of France and to  unnecessary
gruffness on tho part of Great   Britain
in insisting   upon what she   considers
to be her   rights     On one side France
seems to foster the growing belief that.
Great   Britain    is   determined   under
some pretext or other, to   force her into war, and is willing to   make a pretext if no plausible  excuse arises.    On
tbe   other   side, a large party   of   the
British   public   profess that their   patience has been strained beyond endurance by what, they   deem to be the unvarnished dishonest^ of French   diplomacy.    The   past ii hours brought the
pnbliuiitlon   of   the Times denouncin
eaoh of the Federal   Governments  has
already considered it   und the   present
shape of the bill is virtu lly the result
of mutual cone'ssions made by the several Governments. From an authoritative source, it is learned   that tho tusk
of agreeing to   its   final   form   proved
very difficult to the South German Governments, and especially Wurlembnrg,
and   Bnv irin,   which   originally    opposed any such legislation, since  they, i
thus far. have not been   saddled   with |
tricbinrsis   inspection,   and   saw    no
reason why the whole   Empire  should
be saddled with an expensive meat in- j
speotion merely because Prussia wish- |
ed it.    It   was in   deference  to  these
South German   votes,    that   the Pros
sian   Cabinet   gradually cut down the
demands and a number of the Agrarian
features of the   original   draft  of   the
bill were eliminated.    Two important
modifications are the dropping   of   the
clause providing for   State   remuneration for all cattle   und   meat  declare.I
unfit for sale,   and   the insertion of   a
clause enforcing   the inspection of   all
cattle and swine slaughtered, for   private consumption.
COMMERCIAL RELATIONS,
Germany Would   Improve   Hers   With
Amerioa and  Great Britain.
Berlin, Jan. 7.���The German Chamber of Commerce aud Industrial   Arbitration in   their   annual  reports   this
week have referred more or  less freelv
to Germany's trade   with the   United
States.    A   majority of them   express
the hope that commerce  relations will
become   closer   and     more     friendly.
The Leipsig   Chamber   of  Commerce,
one of the most important iu Germany
deplores the uncertainty of   tho   commercial relations with both the United
States and Great   Britain, and says it
trusts the  Government   will  strive to
the utmost to re-establish permanently
the lest relations with both countries.
The Bunder Industriellen.    the   Rhenish manufacturers   Association,   however, urges the  Government to adopt
prompt nnd energetic measures against
the United States iu   view of the palpable violations of the treaty.

Chicago, Jan. 7.���(thief Joseph
Kipley has inslrueted the Chicago

France in language SO fierce from that
conservative newspaper that Frenchmen are reading the two together and
nre construing them as parts of a deliberate poioy, inspired by one mind.
Thnt mind in the theory of the man-
in-the-street, is Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, the Secretary of State for flip
Colonies Oilier papers may storm
and scold nnd aro not noticed, but
when the Times becomes allusive foreigners interpret, il as being the voice
of the Government, In the present in-
tancu, some Engi-hnien will place the
same construction upon its utteranc s,
recalling how the Times led the "No
surrender" cry over the Fashoda incident, under evident inspiration. In
fact, it in certain, public opinion in
Great Britain will not sanction the
(lovernment to swerve an inch to
avoid war with Franco, thinking that
if it must come, this is the best time
to have it out.
Many people give importance to the.
issue of the Madagascar blue book almost simultaneously with the unmistakable pronouncement at Khartoum
by which the British agent there, Viscount Cromer, in his remarks to the
Sbeilcahs, announced thai Great Biil-
nin has set her   seal   upon   Fg.vpt      If
there ever was a doubt  in  the minds
of her European rivals thai Great
Britain intended to foreclose the mortgage upon which she has expended so
much labor uud blood to secure, it
must hnve been set ut rest by the utterances of Lord Cromer, iu which the
word' Protectorate" written iu large
letters appeared, though the government mouthpiece carefully abstained
Iii in using that incendiary word.
A more definite notice that Great
Britain's tenure of Qgypl Is permanent
could not be asked. The British agent
told the assembled Sheiks that,
henceforth, they would live under
ihe Joint British and Egypt Ian
ll igs, knowing no sovereignty but that
of lhe yueen and lhe Khedive, which
of course,  means thai,   the latter   will
be a harmless figurehead, This formal
assumption of sovereignty over tbe
Soudan   is  more distasteful to France
I linn to any other nation, " and renewed protests may be expected.
In the meantime, another enterprise of the utmost moment in further-
. u 'c of Great Britain's domination iu
Africa is about to be consumatcd.
Mr. Cecil Rhodes, the former Premier
of Cape I o nny, alleged instigator of
the Jameson raid, and so-culled Napoleon of South Africa, is going to
England to arrange for pushing forward the Cape Town railroad so long
the dearest dream of the Imperial
party. A definite proposition will be
presented by Mr, Rhodes to London
capitalists for an extension of the road
from llultiwuyo to Lake Tanganyika.
Its Importance for some year swill be
politioal instead of commercial and he
liopes to persuade the British Government to smooth the way by guarantee
ing Il'u per cent, interest on the bonds
to cover cost, of const ruction.
TO GIVE HER LIBERTY.
Mrs   Botkin's Attorneys  Are Worikng
Hard For Her.
San Francisco,   Jan.   7.���Mrs. Cor
nelia   Botkins, convicted   of the murder of Mrs. John P.  Dunning, of   Do
ver, Del.,   whb   to havo  appeared  fcr
sentence today, but did not   do so, her
attorneys giving as the reason the sickness of their client,   who, they allege,
lias been ill ever since the jury returned a verdict.    Her  attorneys asked for
three weeks to   prepare a   batch of ex-
oaptions to ihejverdict. but on the pro-
tost of the   District    Attorney,   Judge
Cook   granted   a   stay   of proceedings
for one week.
ANOTHER HEAD DROPS.
Gold Commissiour J. D. Sibbnld Asked to Resign.
Revelstoke, Jan 7.���J. D. Sihbald.
Gold Commissioner, received this
morning a letter from the Minister of
Mines, Hon. J. Fred Hume, requesting his resignation to take effect the
16th instant, giving as reason that
his notions have not been conducive to
the interests of Revelstoke. H. N.
Coursier is spoken of as his succesor,
but it is not definitely known who
will succeed him.
The citizens are going to hold an
indignation meeting in Tappin'fl Hull
protesting against Sihbald s dismis
sal.
Manila, Jan. 7. ��� Aguinaldo,  tho Insurgent  leader has issued a manifesto
to which he declares he   never   agreed
at Singapore,    Hong   Kong, or     elsewhere, to recognize the sovereignty of
the Americans   here,   aud   insist that
he returned to the   Philippines ou   au
American   warship solely   to   conquer
the Spaniards and   win independence.
He asserts   that   both his proclamations   of   May 2i and   June   12 stated
ibis fact officially, aud   he claims that
Major   General Merritt co (firmed this
by a   proclamation   days   beforo    tbe
Spaniards capitulated, stating   clearly
aud definitely that tho American forces
ca'no to overthrow  the   Spanish   Government and liberate the   Philippines.
In   conclusion,    Aguinaldo   declares
that he bad nitives and foreigners witnesses thut the American forces recognized, not only by acts, that the Filipinos were belligerents,   but   by   publicly saluting the Filipinos  flag,   "as
it triumphantly sailed the seas  before
tho eyes   of   all nations."   Aguinaldo
then solemnly protests in   tbe namo of
ihe Diety, who empowered him to   di-
rect his hri-ilv u in th*   difficult   task
of regeneration, against   the intrusion
of American   Government, and reiterates that he could produce   proof   that
he was brnnght   hero   on   tho   understanding that the Americans promised
him   their co-operation   to attain independence.
The revolutionary leader then calls
upon all his followers to work together
with force, and assures them he is
nonvinoed that they will obtain absolute independence, and urging them
ne.'or to return from the "Glorious
road," on which they hail already so
far advanced.
Major General Otis attaches no importance to the manifesto. He says
he feels confident, that tho opinion of
lhe better classes of the Filipinos
is not expressed in it, but as to whether the Filipino masses can be controlled and the Filipino army kept hack in
cheek, he does not know, although he
hopes for a pacific outcome of tho trou
ble.

no dead work to be done, neither will
there he any necessity for hoisting or
pumping for years to come.
On the Nevada, the most westerly
claim of the group an immense quantity of very rich float has been found,
and along the trenches which have
beeu dug for the purpose of locating
the ledge single pans of sand have
yielded from 30 to SG cents. Preparations have been made for a systematic
effort this spring to locate the source
of this float. Tho government trail
crosses this group, and on it a good
camp has been erected close to au excellent spring of water.
On both groups there is nn unlimited quantity of good timber, and
the company has ensured the profitable
working of their properties ny very
wisely securing the only steady uud
efficient water-power in tbe neighborhood,   namely  a  grant of 00 miners'
inches from Sandy ('reck, where a dam
(il) feet long and 14 feet high has already been put in,and a flume line4800
feet in length has been graded, ready
for the construction of a flume next
soring. The company will thus he able
t) avail itself, at nil seasons, of at
least (il) miners' niches of water under
a head of 700 feet, developing 100
available horse power.
The mill site is an ideal one. situat
ed at tbe foot of a slope near Kootenay
outlet, directly north of the Granite,
one mile distant. The erection of a
30 Stamp mill will he proceeded with
as soon as weather permits in early
i soring, while specifications hnve
b'en prepared and tenders called for an
| aerial ropeway from the Granite bins
to the storage bins at. the mill site.
The ore can thus he transported at a
cost not exceeding 10 cents a ton.
An evenly graded wagon road is to be
constructed from tbe Royal Canadian,
mi which a gravity surface tramway
will be finally laid. The company
lias also acquired some 40 acres of
Wood's preemption adjoining the mill
site.
Tho oie on both properties is a free
milling quartz, and it is estimated
that the concentrates will average
from $7i5 to $i)0 a ton and will he
cheaply treated at the Hall Mines
smelter. Forty-five men have been
Bteiidlly employed on the property
siuce April, hut in the spring the
force will probably be trebled.
Captain Duncan is now in Loudon
perfecting; arrangements with bis directorate for the vigorous completion
of the projects of the company, while
tlm general business is heing looked
after by Mr. ,T. Laing Stocks, with
head office in Nelson.

Oiidtynfiii.
Probably tbe most amusing sociies in
nny court ever heldyn the city   of  Nel-   wus nominated for   alderman, hut the
son or the Province of British Columbia Ulque would not have   it,    Then   fol-
,      ^ .    1 ..  i.._.  t���.  ��� lows a lengthy JB��ort of Mr. Surfer's
were witnessed on Setuiday  Inst  by R Hpeeoh whi,.llis ,,,.lllv th��� ,nost hl,,ric.
large number of persona who assembled 0U8 eveut w),i,.|, nttH yet occurred dur
111 the city   hull  to  claim   to  exercise j ing the   campaign.    Imagine  Charlie
their right ot franchise ns having been
improperly omitted from the voters list
compiled by Oity Olerk Strachao nnd
certified ns oorreot by Mayor Hous
ton, who afterwards carefully returned
the same until compelled to produoe it
* because of the exposnre,eontuitied iu Ihe
oolums of the Miuer.
PolieeMagistrate Crease occupied  bia
sent upon the bench withlhe City Cloik
and the mayor at his side.   The first application  wns  that  of    Robert   Henry
Bradley, a clerk in  the Canada  Drug
nnd    Book  oompany  store,   who   hnd
made the   required   deelui'iitioii   willlin
the required time, hut who, uot  having
the statute at hand, delivered his declaration to u fellow clerk, William Kiitlier-
ford. who was also   filing 11  declaration
in   a  bouseholdor.     William   Bradley
gave evidence to this effect and was supported by  Mr.  Rutherford.   Tbe   city
olerk upon being asked   how   the   U'.nne
happened to he   omitted  from   tho  list
stilted that Bradley   had uot   personally
delivered  his declaration  to  him and
Mr. Strachau, iu search of   further  evi
deuce, then found that some luxes  on a
lot for which Mr, Bradley had beeu   as
sensed, but whioh he did not  owe,   had
not been paid.   The mayor was  becoming impatient nnd  constituting   himsell
judge, delnred:
"lie cannot go on the list."
The application was dismissed.
Following this came the case of Rev.
Robert Frew. He had gone lo the city
clerk's office for the express purpose
uf getting on the list prior to  Dec   1.
lie had paid his road tux. At that time
he also  asked  if there was anything
else he had to do or anything  to   sign
to be entitled to vote,   and the city
clerk said no.     Thinking fiom this
that, bis name would go on, Mr.  Frew
thought nothing more of it.    The city
clerk stated that Mr, Frew's memory
must be playing him sonic  trick nnd
denied his statements.     Being put up
on oath he repeated the denial.     Contradictions were prevalent (or a few
ininiit.es, and as Mr.   Frew   did   not
come within the  four corners of the
statute, not having made his declaration, although having been told  there
was nothing else to do, bis application
was dismissed,
Tlie next case was that of J.H.Love,
His evidence was to the effect that he
bad resided in Nelson for about three
years, bad paid all taxes, and had all
other necessary qualifications. He
visited the city clerk's office, to get on
the voter's list. The dec.million was
made out. The mayor wus present
and when it was handed to him for
his signature as a Justice uf the Pence,
he read it over, refused to swear Mr
Love, and tore up the declaration
This Mr. Houston did not deny. The
declaration thus not having been made
and filed within the proper time, bis
application wns dismissed.
Fred Elliott's case was the next.
He was a member of the (inn of Billot
& Lennie, solicitors, The firm bad
taken out a license, tbe annual fee for
which is over $5. He was a British
subject over 21 years of age and bad
paid all taxes.   His name was added.
Another curious case was that of
Annie McKcii/.ie, who bad paid all
taxes before tbe list was certified and
was an assessed owner. This was accounted for by the city clerk as being
a "slip."    Her name was added.
William Wadds applied on a license
issued to Wadds Bros., carrying on
business at Nelson and Vancouver,
hut because one of the. firm resided
out of the city bis application was re-
refused.
This ease and a number of others in
a similar slate were strenuously opposed by the mayor, tbe city clerk
and their solicitor, each at different
intervals interrupting tbe proceedings
so that the magistrate was power.ess
to keep order.
A number of names were added,
however, as having been improperly
omitted, a list of which appears he-
low:
Hillyer using such words as "administrative ability," and talking about
"harmony" in the council! By the
way what about Alderman Teoty.ol's
notioe of motion to cancel lln. Mayor's
salary?    And   whoever   oharged them
with harmony? The word "recriminations" occupies a prominent position with only three other words in the
line. Any one who knows Mr.
Hillyer will consider that report of his
speech ns next lo libellous.
Then the Mayor conies in for nn en-
logy of course, when the speaker is
transformed into a prophet, closing
with a hurst, of oratory which is only
equal ill absurdity to the previous alleged remarks of the candidate, and
the miinuer 111 which John Houston as
Editor throws hoqnets at John Houston
as Mayor.

To tbe   udependent   Electors  of
the City of Nelson :
Having heen presented with a requisition bearing tho signatures of a
great many of tho ratepayers of the
City of Nelson,iiskiug me to stand as a
candidate for the honorable position of
Mayor of our city at tlie coming elections ; and having heen urged to do so
hy a large number of others; I take
pleasure in announcing that I am a
candidate.
In so doing I feel assured that all of
yon desire to see our City take that
place in the Province to which she is
entitled, and tn that end my humble
serivees will he devoted.
I believe that tbe year upon which
we have just entered will he the most
important in determining the City's
future; that necessary public works
should he undertaken, and that, where
practicable, and in the host interests
of the City, such work should he done
hy day labor; that in tie administration of the affairs of the City there
should be no sectional feeling and no
favoritism remembering that we are
all equal as ratepayers, and have the
welfare of the Oity as our common
oause, first, last  and all tbe time.
I further believe that, competent officials superintending the different pub-
lie departments will advance aud
conserve Ihe best interests of the Oity ;
and that a better distribution of tbe
City's business among proper com-
uittees. will insure a termination ot
he one-man rule ol the past.
If elected, I am ready and willing,
as Mayor, to assume mv proper share
in the administration of the City's
affairs;,but I believe that tbe alder,
men should be intrusted with a fair
proportion of tlie government of tbe
City.
I will advocate a substantial reduction in tho salary of the Mayor.
I will endeavor to act iu tbe best
interests of the Citv, and treat my fellow citizens iu tho same way as I have
during my lengthy residence here.

two of those on a small envelope would
be somewhat inconvenient. Why not

than this by having   that monstrosity,
the penny stamp, culled in and burnt,

In its leader the other day The Van
couver World took occasion to say:
"At tho opening of tbe New Year we
have to state that in future, ns in
the past, it shall be our aim to pursue
a thoroughly independent oonrae."
This independence, it will be under
stood, has reference to its attitude in
respect lo political parties and questions. When some leading Liberals of
the Proviuee, a year ago or moro, endeavored to divide the Provincial
electorate on Dominion party Hues.
The World refused to join. The effort
was not successful, but the fact that it
was irade seems to have left its effect
on Tbe World, for it, has since opposed
those Liberals who have joined with
Mr. Semlin iu forming and maintaining a Government, Whethor for that
or other reasons, it has also freely
cirticised the Government at Ottawa.
It has been independent, and it says
now that it intends to remain independent.
We aro unable to quite comprehend
our contemporary. In a paragraph or
two farther on in the same article, it
refers to the decision of the Conservative convention held last September
to divide ou the old party lines. Iu
view of this, it says "nothing remains
for the Liberals but to accept, the challenge. " A precisely similar challenge
was Involved iu the action of tho Liberal convention of October, 1NII7. Vet
on that occasion The World refused to
aeknowldego it. It hud no doubt then
that something else did remain than
its acceptance. Why is the later "challenge" to ho treated differently? The
only possible explanation is that a
strictly party division is Imminent,
and that The World is squaring itself
to fall into lino. But. what becomes,
then, of ils promise to "pursue 11 thoroughly independent course," in tlie future as in the pustV
We arc afraid The World has involved itself in some obscurity ; but us
far as its politioal survey is concerned,
there call he lillie doubt that ils remarks presage a change iu the char
ucter of parties in Provincial i ffuirs.
That would seem to he the expectation
in tbe political centres mi the Coast,
and what is determined on the ('nasi
ill this regard will have to he accepted
hy the rest of lhe Province, whether
we like it or not. Those of us who
are outside the whirl of politioal excitement would prefer to leave nld
party lines alone in matters of purely
Provincial concern, but while thai
may he our preference most of ns no
doubt recognize thut a division is In-
evilulile, and a* it is hound In come il
may us well come quickly, We gather
from The World Hint in Vancouver il
is expected that it will come quickly.
Put it, cannot come willuuil disrupting
the present Government, nnmposod us
it is of men who are of both political
parlies. Unless, of course, one
group of them or the other are ready lo
sell their principles for place, carryibg
their followers in the House with them.
That is too much to apprehend, and
therefore the only conclusion is that
before many moons we may look for
stirring tunes in Ihe political Held.
Wu nm command suooess in municipal K'lviiininnet if we stait right. But
if we let ulfuirs drill, into tbe bunds
of the jobbing   clement we shall   soon
iiuvit a miniature Tammany,  which
may cost us ninny a blush and many a
penny before we can succeed in overthrowing it.
Events, a new weekly journal published at Toronto, coulaiiiH an article
on municipal politics, a paragraph
from which will apply in Nelson us
well an elsewhere : "The best remedy
for a city sunk in jobbery and Corruption would be to sweep out. the stables

Bnerlflce Nol Necessary.
We believe in the fidelity of the
Imperial authorities ami of our fellow-
subjects across the sen to Canada today. They have been on onr side in
the past; they are on our side now.
No change bus been made in tbe Imperial policy with reference to our
right to say 'what our terms in negotiations with another country shall be.
To charge them with a desire or an
intention to sacrifice us is to do them
injustice, und. what is worse still, to
create in this country a feeling of distrust where no occasion for distrust exists. We must remember that Great
Britain bus placed our ease in the
hands of our own representativees and
that Britain's position is an attitude
of help, and not of obstruction or opposition. ���Toronto Mail.

Mr. V. ,T. Deaiie left for tho Coast
on Saturday night to take bis seat iu
the Legislature on the 5th. There is
a protest lodged, hot the penalty is
only $500 a day, a chance Mr. Dcanc
is quite willing to lake. If a suit
should be brought against him to recover it could not hurt him. You can't

The division existing iu the. Cabinet
itself cannot long be kept concealed.
It is likely to take the for", of au open
rupture nl nuv time. Whether it
shall be long or short, we look for a
very interesting session. Tbe constitutional question involved in the
dismissal of lhe late Government will
doubtless ho considered at length.
The recent dismissals will naturally
come up. and tlicre arc other subjects,
ihe discussion ot which ought to give
rise to very lively sessions.���Victoria

We havo been asked: "Who is this
liian Fisher who bus condemned the
Hudson Bay route?" Considering the
prominence   he   has  been    given,   it
might be supposed that Mr. .lames
Fisher, M. P. P, was a recognized iiu-
Ihorily on exploration, an experienced
navigator, or at least au expert on
geiigranliy. lie is none of these, He
is a political lawyer of Manitoba, a
member of the Provincial Legislature
who was sent by Premier Greenway
to aeeoninay the Diana expedition to
Hudson Hay iii 1807, He is not a
mini ol any particular prominence even
iu Manitoba local politics, and his enemies aver that the onlv reason for his
being selected for the Hudson Hay mission was I hat three years 4igo he judiciously   censed    to   oppose the separate
shooi settlement which the Laurier-

FLOGGING LN SIBERIA
FtAftFUL   IORTURE  TO  WHICH  CONVICTS ARE  LIABLE.
'I'lie Story of the Moi-oili-nNly Brutal
Knout hn Told by 11 Elns.laii Surgeon���i'lie Worst Criminals CIiomou
to Wield Ihe Lush.
Passing ulong u gloomy passage of the
Alexander prison, whose walls uro covered with block inoliliiioss and reek with
tho strong scent of pine cones strewing nn
the floor, wo find at the ond of the oorrl-
dor chairs and tables for tho authorities
who witness the infliction of the punishments. Among the offloials uro u lawyer,
the chief of tho prlsoD (111(1 the BUrgoon,
nnd 11 little way off Is placed the ''block"
of threatening aspoot, behind whloh stands
the wieliler of the knout, who awaits his
victims with 11 curious look His gurli ia
apparently Intended to make iho situation
all tho more impressive. Be wears a lull
wlillo head covering, soft felt shoos, a
blood rud shirt Willi its sleeves turned up,
und bo carries the knout In his hand
Along tho olio wall stumls a row of convicts with smoothly shaved heads, and
facing thou, is a long lino of warders arm
oil with loaded revolvers in the hand The
silliness, as of the grave, whloh stamps
all present, Is broken from timo to time
by the rattling of tho handouffs and the
leg fetters mid by a furtive cough or tho
rustling of the papers upon the table of
the prison governor
"Who will be the noxty" is tho question
that is all too clearly to be read upon tho
deathlike features of tho "arrestants."
"Siilorov" Is called out by the governor
in a quiet, restrained voice. Sidorov steps
unsteadily and with an Increasing totter
and rattling of his chains out of tho lino
of gray, long felt coats. 1 note his lips
growing pale and the four In his widely
opened oyos, as though ho wore a hunted ]
wild boast.
"Lie down I" is the command. Hastily
liuiking the sign of tlie cross on his broast,
Sidorov lies down nt length on tho bench
and throws each arm around it Ho is
then bound by leather thongs to tho
bench, and his bunds are tied together bo-
neath it
"How many?" asks tho warder charged
Willi counting tho strokes.
"Sixty," is tho quiet answer of the governor
"Look out," or "Pull yourself together," forms the general remark of tho
knout wielder, and the next moment tho
blows aro raining in fearful thuds upon
the bare back of Sidorov, who utters heart
piercing shrieks. One, two, three���tho
warder calls aloud tbe tale of tho stripes,
every one of which hisses and loaves its
mark on tho culprit. The cry that at Urst
followed every stroke has gradually become an unbroken howl and roar, und
readers must have strong nerves if they
can picture further all the hidoousnesa of
this diabolical form of punishment.
This sort, of oastigiition is inflicted upon
oonvlots whenever it is ordained hy the
law or by the police and local nuthorities.
Tho dispenser of blows is always u fellow
taken from the prisoners themselves, and
in his hands the fate of the delinquent
may bo said literally to lie. Tho knout
consists of a thick wooden stick, to which
is fastened a strongly plaited lush, about
80 inches long and :i inches wide, and this
thong Is cut so as to form three lashes nt
lt;i ond A ooiivlct who retains the smallest degree of human feeling can never lio
induced to undertake this olliee, and thus
only tho moat reprobate and hardened
criminals aro chosen lor tho dread work.
To these inhuman creatures the courts of
Russia Intrust, human life. It is In their
power to inflict only light punishment
upon tho condemned, to make him il cripple for tho rest, of his days or to send him
to his grave on tho spot, and yet the ollicials never deem it necessary to put any
restraint on these (loggers. The experienced (loggers are really skilled at their
work. If they wish to show any mercy to
the delinquent, they rain blows on his
body with tho middle part of lhe whip,
while the cruel tips of it fall beyond the
prisonor and on the bench, but if no
mercy is to bo given, then the knout is
made to do Its fell purpose In the bands
of a skilled (logger the motions of tho
knout aro so quick that thoy can scarcely
bo rightly followed by an inexperienced
observer. In oil her case the prisoner naturally howls, but tbe difference In tho result is very marked Tho lightened form
of punishment can be bought, and woe to
htm who Is not, ulile to propitiate tho
(logger
Tho courts generally condemn to flogging coiillrnieil orlinlllills, fugitives from
Siberia nnd vagn ' ��� '-. ninny of whom
hnve received alii in, r Inuii rem to 800
blows. An old Hi erliui trump finished
Ills curriculum Vltno with the following
words, "1 have recoiled all told 1,400
stripes of the blreli rod, Dou blows from
the knout and numberless thrashings hy
slicks." As Is to bo expected, the stalls
tics of the Siberian prisons show lhe futility of those punishments as corrective
measures. In proportion as the punish
moots Increase In number and cruelly so
the relapses and backslldiiigs Into orlnio
Increase Nostalgia, or Inlonslllod home
sickness, Is  curiously   strong   In   Iho   In
mates of the Siberian prisons and will not
bo repressed by tho most uruol system of
whipping
Hitherto we   huve dealt  only  with tho
knout, which is tho rarer form of punishment and must   bo ordered   by a oourl (if
luw.   Tho usual corporal punishment by
moans of rods and slicks Is somewhat dlf
foront, for thoy form the alpha anil omega
of tho corrective measures lu use lu si-
bvrlan prisons     This form of punishment
is regarded rather us u bagatelle, and yot
Its effects are much worse than those of
the knout, for it Is muted out to all in the
lame meaiure.   It needs not to bo ordain
od by a court of law, and  Iho Victim un
dergoos no previous medical examination
as to  his Illness to bear the   punishment
Every governor Of prisons can give 111) umi
every district governor lilt) of  those blows
at thoir solo discretion It lithonakod
truth that even orliuluali when grievously
111 do not escape this punishment. A fit
male prisoner In tlunlistrlct of ICorsukov
was whipped to such an extent that she
loll down dead.
That the governors of Siberian prisons
aro not all monsters, hut that there are In
exceptional cases kindly hearted men, Is
,,,-eii in thoniuio of Slpjiigln, tho former
director of tho prison at Irkutsk He
wont so far In  his dauntless rolurms as to
entirely abolish punishment liy whipping
And  what  was   thu  rostiltr    The  prison
discipline Improved astonishingly, trims-
grossloiiH and crimes almost censed lobe
the order of  tbe (lay, and   attempts Iocs
cape became a thing of the past.- Vratsoh,

CASTING OUT DEVILS.
Inhuman  Methods That  Are Used In
Superstitious Russia.
Superstition is very rife throughout
Russia und tho oast. In some parts of
Ktissin the people bellovo that devils can
enter Into tho organism of human beings,
whose actions they thereafter guide, nnd
there aro soroorors who profess to be able
to cast out tho spirits. These men are utterly without scruplo, and the sufferings
Whloh they cause their victims to undergo
may be easily imagined. Very few cases
ever conie before tho law courts. Tho peo-
plo look upon tho wizard as a powerful
personage, who cun work them much evil,
and therefore not lightly to be provoked.
Hence con:plaints are rarely laid bofore
tho tribunals.
A typical story of the sort, however, recently came before tho court of Vladican-
case. A Mohammedan mullah, or priest,
named Ahmed KanitisanulT, was charged
with torturing a peasant woman named
Kotcherctova, his object being to drive
devils out of her. Kntehorctova, who was
only 90, foil ill, bor malady being accompanied by epileptic lits. The villagers and
her husband, a mini named Aslan-Bek,
oaine to the conclusion thnt she wus afflict'
od by evil spirits, and tlie husband called
upon tho molliih Kauiasunoll to cast thorn
out. The priest came to tlie house und
began his treatment,
l'irst of all they made up a big wood
lire, and when there wore plenty of hot
ashes they stripped the young woman und
tied her hunds nnd foot. Seeing those
ominous preparations, Kotoheretova bo-
gan to cry out, nnd begged them to desist.
"Cut oil my arms, put out. my eyes; do
what you like, but do not burn mo I"
Thoy paid no attention to her pleadings,
and, picking her up, placed her on the
tiro. She then became Insensible. She
wus covered with burns, which the doctor
who examined her declared to be of a very
severe character.
Whon brought bofore the court, the
priest explained that the woman's husband had sought his advlco. Ho counseled Aslan-Bek to force his wife to name
the spooks, and he (the priest) would be
able to restore her to health. He had put
hor on tho flro until she gave tho names
of the evil spirits, which he then wrote
upon a piece of paper nnd threw It into
tho (lames, after which ho was qulto sure
that the devils wou/ld leave her. He nddod
that when she cried bofore being put on
i be hearth it was not sho that wept, but
the devils.
Tbe inquiry showed that the woman
had been kept on hot ushes for eight
hours The head man of the villngo de-
posod thut such methods of treatment
were often employed and wore always successful Tho court found the priest guilty
und sentenced him to deprivation of all
his civil rights and toono year's imprisonment Tho husband would have been ulso
tried, but thut bis wife declared thnt sho
forgnve him.���St. Petersburg Correspond-

Tho vessel called at a Turkish port to

oonvtotlon that ho hud been hoaxed.���
