fCHINESE
SITUATION
[Antl-Forelgn Power Now Ad-
I    vlsers of the Empress
Dowager.
Princes Would Sign Note but
Emperor Refuses Use of
Imperial Seal.
Pekin, Jan. 8.���Li Hung Chang is
better. Both he and Prince Ching
balked at signing the joint note when
they considered the question until the
court should be beard from again, explaining that the Emperors' edict di-
/recting them to put off signing prevented tbem from using the Imperial
seal until permission should be received. They said tbey hourly expected
permission. It is known here among
the Chinese that the extreme anti-foreign element is now in power aud tbat
the court favotites now advise the
Empress Dowager. Of these the best
known are Li Cbuan Lin, a cabinet
minister. General Ma, and Tung Fu
Slang. Their advice coincides favorably with libose of the southern Viceroy*, particularly with those of Chang
Chi Tung, who has threatened to rebel if the note shall be signed. Lu
Bung Chang and Prince Cbing both
strongly urge the signing of the agreement and they believe their counsels
must prevail. They have pointed out
in the strongest possible terms that
the very existence of China necessitates the acceptance of tbe terms of tbe
powers and that failure on the part of
China to sign may mean that as soon
���s the state of tbe weather shall make
.snob ��� step feasible the allies will
���end troops over tbe country so that
parts of the Empire heretofore untouched, shall feel the scourge of war.
The Germans have sent two companies of infantry to the vicinity of the
Ning tombs, whe-e trouble is reported. 	
Berlin, Jan. 9.���It is understood
tbat the subject of the lengthy interview with United States Ambassador
White had yesterday afternoon with
the Secretary of State for Foreign
Affairs, Baron Von Blchthefen, was
in regard to the proposal of the United States that tbe powers withdraw
their troops from China as soon as the
Chinese Government shall accept all
the articles in the joint note except
those relating to indemnity and commercial treaties, these being left for
settlement at a conference of the pow
era at Washington and eleswhere. No
final decision in tbe matter has been
announced but the feeling in diplomatic circles here seems to be opposed
to the United States' proposition.
I Shannai, Jan. ,9.���A newspaper of
this city publishes a letter from   Sian
' Fu announcing tbat the Emperor has
fully determined to return to Pekin to
administer the reformed Government.
According to this letter the Empress
Dowager offers no opposition to tbe
Emperor's determination.
TALKS OF CHINA.
Arcbibshop From the Orient Gives His
Views of tbe Situation.
' Paris, Jan. 9.���Arohbishop Favlcre,
the head  of tbe   French   mission  in
'North China, has arrived in Paris. In
an interview he says he  believed   tbe
' Dowager Empress would return to Pekin, iq, the Spring when order will be
completely restored. The Europeans,
he adds, will find tbey have not lost
ground by recent events. The Government, however, must be given time to
resume the  direction  of affairs.   In
, the meanwhile, the police work cow
proceeding should be completed and
the last bands of boxers and looters
dispersed. Europe must not try to
rush the negotiations for Chinese diplomacy always says "No" but afterwards always says "Yes." The
k&rohblshop justifies tbe ransacking of
Pekin shops for food by Chinese
Christians   with   connivance   of    the
I Archbishop. He declares the Christiana took provision from abandoned
warehouses after they first had obtained permission from M. Plcbon (the
French Minister) to seize provisions,
clothing, and ooal and also a portion
of the money lying in Prince Li's palace. In order to send it to tbe distressed Christians  in  the Provinces.   An
account was kept of everything with
a view of reimbursing the owners or
deducting the amount Irom the indemnity. All valuable objects gathered
at Pei Tung included the contents of
his own museum, and were sold at
suction. Most of the articles were
bought by two Americans. Archbishop Faviere returns to China in February.
SUCCESSFUL   TEST.
Submarine Boat Has Trial Bun With
Satisfactory Results.
Paris, Jan. 9.���The Figaro, in a
special despatch this morning, describes a voyage of two hours in the
submarine boat Morse during the
trials at Chorbourg, on Monday. "In
less than two minutes," says the correspondent, "the vessel reached a
depth of eighteen feet, when she performed her revolutions with ease and
perfect safety. By means of an ingenious instrument, the periscope,
floating upon the surface of the water,
everything above was visible. The
problem of the supply of air has been
solved satisfactorily, and the crew
were ablej to remain submerged for
sixteen hours without fatigue of the
lungs.
ALLE SAMEE BOEBS.
Manila, Jan. 9.���Several insurgent
camps have been captured and destroyed recently in various districts of Luzon and Laro. One camp was captured

enemy is very ahy and generally escapes. A scouting party of the 40th
Regiment captured a score of Ladrones
near Silanij. Paterni and other influential independent radicals are seeking to develop the two faotions of the
Federal party. Paterno contends that
while the declared principles of the
party will do for the present, eventually the Filipinos will seek fuller independence.

MARINE
DISASTER
French Mall Steamer In a
Very Precarious Condition.
Feared That Ninety Souls on
Board   Cannot   Be
Rescued.
Marseilles, Jan. 9.���A terrible disaster threatens the steamer Russie,
from Oran, which stranded yesterday
on the coast near the village of Fara-
man during a violent storm, with 50
passengers and a crew of forty on
board. She has keeled to the starboard and the waves are sweeping
over her. Desperate attempts to rescue those on board by tbe life boats
and steam tugs were made yesterday
and today, but thus far tbe rough seas
have prevented every effort to approach her. The wind is blowing a
hurricane with bo signs of abatement.
A great crowd is assembled along
the shore, anxiously watching the endeavors to communicnte with those on
board the doomed ship, whicli ie
bumping heavily, the seas dashing
over ber. Rockets have been fired, but
each time the line has fallen short.
Rear Admiral Bessel of Marseilles
bus telegraphed to Toulon for the dispatch of the powerful tug Travailleur
immediately to the scene. At darkness this evening the authorities were
assembled on shore, and the life boats
were lying off, awaiting tbe first opportunity to effect a rescue, but the.
latest despatches from the light house
keener at Faraiuan say the steamer is
hopelessly lost.
Marseilles, Jan. 9.���Dispatches from
the village of Faraman, near which
the French mall steamer Russie, from
Oran, Algieria, stranded on Monday
in a violent storm with dfty passengers and a crew of forty.say all effortB
to reach the steamer have failed owing to tbe high seas which are running. The pilot boats and torpedo
boats which have attempted to reach
tbe steamer have been unable to battle with the waves and have returned.
The only hope seems to be in the
ability of the life savers to throw a
line over the Russie when the wrecked vessel shall be driven closer to the
shore. The forecastle and part of the
forward deckhouse are all of the vessel
remaining above water. It is believed
tbat Borne of those on board of her
must have already been drowned although no bodies have been washed
ashore.
Later.���A signal message was received at three o'clock this afternoon
from Russie saying all on board were
alive but begging for succor. The sea
had slightly moderated but all attempt at rescue had failed.
TERRIBLE HURRICANE.

men in the steam launch. Two bodies
wore recovered but could not be identified. Commander Schroeder Bpeaks
In the highest terms of the unflinching courage and determination evinced
by Captain Beire and the officers and
men under bim. The Governor says:
"Tbe devastation on the island is deplorable. Some of the older inhabitants say that the hurricane of 1855
was as severe,but since that year nothing has been known to equal it."
OPENING OF THE DIET.
Speech From the Throne Tells of Big
Canal Improvement.
Berlin, Jan. 8.���The Diet was open
ed yesterday in the name of Emperor
William, who is suffering from a
slight cold, by the Imperial Chancellor Count Von Buelow, who read the
speech from the throne. The principal
point in this was the announcement,
of the immediate presentation of an
extended oanal bill comprising not
only the Rhine and the Elbe scheme,
but also the construction of a waterway for large ships between Berlin
and Stetting, a more practicable waterway between the Oder and Vistula,
and the Improvement in the Wartha,
Lower Oder, Lower Hevel and the
Spree.   The  speech  referred   to the
continued satisfactory financial situ
atlon, saying a considerable surplus
had been obtained in 1899 and that
equally favorable results were expected for 1900, while the budget for 1001
showed a marked Increase in revenue
and the profits from the state railways
were satisfactory. It was proposed,
the speech added, to introduce bills
dealing with the reform of the local
government of Berlin, the relief of
provincial finances, tbe housing prob-
lein'and others. The speech concluded with an appeal for the patriotic
labor of the members of the Diet and
with reference to the bi-centennary
of the Kingdom of Prussia.

MUST FAVOR DUELLING.
Catholics Refused Commissions Because They Oppose It.
London, Jan. 9.��� A dispatch to Tbe
Daily Newa from Berlin says tbat
much interest attaches to an incident
that has occurred in connection with
the duelling traditions of the Germany army. Three cadets at Cologne,
who were fully qualified, applied for
commissions in the army. It being
known that they were consistent Catholics, they were asked to express their
views on duelling. They replied that
they did not approve of it, whereupon
they were blackballed by tbe board
of officers. Duelling is obligatory
on army officers. Nevertheless, General
Von Gossler, Minister of War.eancell-
ed the vote, but the officers subsequently again blackballed the applicants. The affair will be referred to
tbe Reichstag.
WIRELESS TELEGRAPHY.
Toulon, Jan. 9.���The recent experiments with wireless telegraphy in
connection with the French fleet have
been bo satisfactory that it has been
decided to provide the entire Mediterranean squadron with wireless apparatus, which will be subjected to decisive tests during the coming cruise of
that squadron. Recent experiments
showed that dispatches could be read
reliably at distances of from 18 to 20
miles by the new system. New lights
also will be tried with a view of introducing reform in the tactical signalling.

property is this week joining the long
list of British Columbia shippers
The management of the Broken Hill
M. & D. Co. have decided to ship a
quantity of ore this winter and over
two car loads are now sacked at the
Wilcox ready for hauling to town for
shipment to tbe smelter. This ore,
which will average from 840 to 800 to
the ton, has all been taken out in the
course of development on the new
ledge discovered on the property last
spring. A tunnel has been run on the
ledge a distance of 300 feet, a depth
of 160 feet having been gained. Work
is to be steadily prosecuted on this
vein all winter, and the ore will be
sorted and sacked for shipment in, Ink
en out. It is the intention of the
company to erect a mill in tbe spring,
tbe bulk of the ore being free milling.
The Dundee also intend shipping a
qunntitiy of ore this winter from the
new workings on their property, done
oh the ledge discovered after the fire
destroyed their concentrator in tbe
early part of the summer. Three tunnels are being run on this ledge, the
ore averaging over five feet in width,
and carrying good values in gold and
silver. .   .
The company formed in Spokane to
operate the Big Horn claim on Good
Hope mountain, have a force of ten
men at work on the property. Cabins
have been built, and a stock of provisions and supplies put in for the
winter work. It is the intention of
the company to run a 100-foot tunnel
to tap the two main ledges on the
pioperty at depth.. Three shifts of
miners will be kept at work on the
tunnel all winter. The capital interested is all Spokane money, and sufficient funds have been secured from
the sale of promoters stock to fully
develop the property.
���  ���  ���
Following is the text of the report
of the directors of the Gianite Gold
Mines, Ltd., presented at the second
ordinary general meeting held at
Winchester House, Old Board Street,
London, E. C, on Dec. 28th lust and
will be of interest:
The directors submitted their report
and statement of accounts from the
commencement of the company's operations to August 31, 100. The accounts
consist of a balance sheet, revenue
account and profit and loss account.
From the revenue accounts, after providing for all expenses chargeable
nguiUBt revenue end after writing oil
a sum of 2,890 9s. 3d. for maintenance
and repairs, a balance in left of ��1,-
725 17s. Id., which has been transferred to profit and loss account, ami tin
directors .regret thut the total working
shows a loss of ��754 Os 5d. The balance sheet shows liabilities amounting to ��29,905 4s. 8d., which sum has
been entirely applied in Increasing
the company's property and in development and equipment. The director*,
wish specially to call attention to the
fact that the Poorman mine nnd adjoining properties have been purchased and the property of the company
almost doubled without any cash having been proivded for this purpose, or
for tfee development of the Poorman
mine. At the meeting held in May
last you were informed of the circumstances attending this purchase. In
conjunction with this mine, the Granite mine can be more advantageous!-,
worked,and in acquiring the Poorman
mine, which was a going concern, the
directors took what they thought wa*>
the best step in the Interests of the
company. To enable this company to
acquire the Poorman mine, the Duncan mines lent the cash required, and
in addition to this they bavo allowed
a considerable part of the cush price
of the Granite mine to lie over. With
the exception of the Bank of Montreal, from whom an overdraft has
been incurred, they aie the sole creditors of the company. A table given ut
he end of the report shows  the mill
ing results up to the close of the account, and you will observe from it
that the average extraction of gold
has been about 89 per ton (equivalent
to about half an ounce.) The expenses
of mining and milling have averaged
80.28 per too, and the surplus revenue
has been employed in development.
'I'lii* mills lias, after the first trial,
worked exceedingly well, and as much
as 88.4 per cent of the gold was recovered in the crushing for August
last. This percentage has been maintained since. The work In tbe Granite mine has shown that at the lowest
level the vein is more settled, a body
of ore continuous for 100 feet and
averaging 20 inches in width having
been disclosed there. After the Poor-
man mine had been purchased, our
engineer recommended that the Granite mine be worked from below by
connection with tho Poorman mine,
which is situated lower down the hill.
This connection, when made, would
give 500 feet of backs on the Granite
vein, and working the mine thus
would very much lessen the cost by
dispensing with all pumping and
hoisting. This policy haB been adopted by the board, and the ore in sight
in the Granite mine has therefore been
left to be taken out in this way. At
the meeting in May last the engineer's
report was put before you, in which
he asked for a further working capital of at least ��10,000 for the develop
incut of this mine upon a much larger
scale and the corresponding Increase
of the battery from 20 to 40 stamps.
You were aBked at that meeting to increase the company's capital for this
purpose, but owing to the state of the
financial markets since that date the
directors have not been able, so far,
to raise the necessary capital for extending the scale of working and, in
their opinion, putting the mine on a
satisfactory and paying baBis. They
are, at the moment, endeavoring to
perfect Hue.li arrangements as will give
them tbe amount required.

THE LONDON
AND GLOBE
Stormy Meeting Today Captured by Lord Dufferln's
Sincerity.
Whlttaker Wright Announces
Reconstruction Scheme
Will Go Through.
London, Jan. 9.���Amidst cries of
"Turn him out," hootings and other
hostile interruptions, the Marquis of
Dufferin and Ava,chairman of the suspended London & Globe Finance Corporation, Ltd., at the extraordinary
general meeting of the company called for today,succeeded in at least temporarily appeasing the wrath of the
shareholders. The hall was packed
and the directors were evidently supported by a large faction, as warm
cheering was mingled with hisses and
hoots. As a result of the explanations
of the directors, the shareholders
voted an adjournment until Monday,
when a scheme for the reconstruction
of the concern will be submitted.
Lord Dufferin spoke with evident
emotion as he explained his personal
relations with the corporation and the
result of the meeting was largely a
tribute to himself. During the course
of bis remarks he explained that he
was induced to accept the chairmanship at the solicitation of the late
Lord Loch and Sir Wm. Robinson.
His Lordship added that he felt that
when two such eminent men were connected with the concern he could legitimately join.-���' He soon, discovered
he had bitter dpponentB who'desired
his resignation, hoping that a depreciation of the securities would follow.
But he stuck to his position and investments and though a greater sufferer than most of the shareholders he
had no regret if he had convinced
them of his good faith. Later he found
the duties to be a physical strain beyond bis advancing years and he
wanted to withdraw but was haunted
by tbe fear of tbe detrimental effect of
his withdrawal and he held on to the
chairmanship until he received news
of the serious condition of his youngest son. Then he yielded to his mother's prayers to take her at once to
South Africa and he sent in bis resignation with a clear conscience, believing that the surrender of his position
under such circumstances was so natural that no oue would dream of placing a slnster interpretation "upon it.
lie had no anticipation then that the
London and Globe would default from
its engagements on the Stock Exchange. The news reached him in
Ireland and in the presence of such a
calamity lie felt that every private
consideration must be sunk, In conclusion Lord Dufferin, who was deeply moved, declared that the patience
mil generosity with which the shareholders had heard him would be one
of the brightest souvenirs of his old
age. He resumed his seat amid loud
cheers,
Mr. Whitaker Wright's reception
was of a mixed character. He announced thut the directors had practically arranged with the creditor! and
Ihe company will soon be sailing
unoothly again. It would bo ncces-
lary to adjourn until Monday, when
ho believed the shareholders would
lienr that all their Interests were safe
and that a scheme for the reconstruction of the company would be proposed
insuring Its future prosperity. Mr.
Wright added that he had udvanced a
quarter of a million pounds to tide
the Corporation over its struggles.
Mr. Wright's fuithcr remarks were
listened to with considerable Impatience and the meeting closed with fur-
thor cheers for Lord und Lady Dufferin.

HAROLD SELOUS.
From reports published in the Winnipeg papers our morning contemporary gathers the following: "The
Protestant ministers of Winnipeg are
said to be agitating for better religious teachings in the public schools.
The place to teach religion is in the
churches, and if Winnipeg is short on
churches and long on schools, the
people of that town are well off."
In the same column appears this short
paragraph, also the result of the editor's perusal of his exchanges: "There
are 115 Presbyteriens and only 30
natives of Scotland in all the penitentiaries of Canada." ReMgious teaching has been a marked feature of the
schools of Scotland for generations
back, and wuh reflecting persons the
fact will sufficiently explain the
meagre patronage of Canad'an penitentiaries by the natives of that country. The editor of the Houston Tribune may be an oracle among bis own
kind, but he should not assume that
character -when he finds himself
among persons of intelligence and
knowledge of   the world.
A case of general public interest was
up beFore the Police Magistrate of
New Westminster a few days ago.
A local brewer sold half a gallon
of beer to three young men,who drank
it on the premises; the brewer waB
tried for a violation of the Provincial
law for the regulation of the traffic.
He contended that, as he had his Dominion license, the local law did not
govern. Under that license there was
no restriction as to the quantity to be
Bold or any direction as to where it
might be consumed. It was a test
case, arranged between the brewer
and the Liquor Inspector, for the set
tlement of a much disputed point
The Magistrate reserved judgment. It
will be interesting to know wheLber
a brewer's license carries with it the
privilege of selling at retail, and
whether the business is otherwise exempt from interference on the part of
the Provincial authorities. Whatever
the decision, it will p.obably be car
r.ed to   higher court.
Hamsworth's feei'ngs in taking ab-
Bo'ute charge of The New York Wo.Id
for one day, and making it up accord
ing to bis ideas of a newspaper, are
supposed >o be illustrated by a story
to'd by The New York Times on the
authority of Aad ewLang: Dr. Jow-
eu was once st'anded in a small town
In the North of England, and compelled to dice at il:* oue hotel. There
was but one d'no.* in the coffee
room, and I bo great scholar began his
d)iiner in a gloomy solitude, presently
punetca ed by the pop of a champagne
cork. This did not stavtle him, but
he was somewhat mo-.ed by the pop
of ano'.l'cr within u quarter of an
hour. And when, n.'ler another quar
ter of an hour, a third cork popped
his dignity cou'd not prevent his cur
ios'ty from turuing him around. As
he turned, his eye met that of an un-
iiii-tali.'ilili* Caledonian, in the act oi
rirsing a glass of champagne to his
lips, who somewhat confusedly explained: "Sir, I would hae ye to
know that I am na traveling nt my
uin expense."
It is to be hoped that the business
men of Nelson will turn out In large
numbers to the annual meeting of the
Nelson lloiird of Trade whicli is to be
held tonight. Of all the towns in the
Interior of British Columbia Nelson
shows the least Interest in the work
of its Board of Trade if the attendance at the ordinary general meetings
can be taken as a criterion. But still
some people make tho objection that
the Board is controlled by n eliquo.
This is the simplest thing iu the
world to overcome, allowing, for the
sake of argument, that the mythical
clique really does exist. All that is
necessary is for the objectors to attend tho meetings and run the Board
themselves.
Will those American papers with
pro-Boer tendencies, which are making Great Britain tho v'otim of some
wonderfully clever Do Wet jokes,
please remember that they have been
after Agulnaldo and a few naked
black men for over two yenrs,and it is
The Toronto newspapers of the 3rd,
4th, and 5th all came tumbling in together by last night's mail. This
happens ��� with unfailing regularity
about once a week. A great postal
service they give us in the Kootenays.

Dear, dear, what poor, weak, made to

us believe men are! Fickle, unstable,
only te be held In the path of right and
doty by tender consideration, gentle coaxial and constant watchfulness to see tbat

"Another way to hold your husband Is
t* make allowances for his little Imperfection*. Be will smoke in tbe bouse

They are only spots on tbe sun. He patient, and If you ever fall Into a wrauglo
be the first on* to make up. Never let
the sun go down on your wrath."
That's a mart's view of the proper way
te hold a man to the performance of oue
of his highest duties in life. There never
w��s a man hater���If there ever was a
woman who could be called thnt���who

get np and tell the men of the country
how te treat their wives; how to "hold"
them so they will not lose their love for

men In th* world need to be coddled like
this. Fortunately the women don't believe It. Tbey know the world is full of

PROTEST ENTERED.
Winnipeg, Jan. 9 ���George L. Le-
polnt and George N. Sense have entered a petition against the return of
Joseph Bernier as a member of the
Provincial Honse for St. Boniface.
They allege a corrupt bargain between Premier Roblin and Archbishop
Langevin, by which the latter was to
exert his influence upon tbe voters to support Bernier, and the
former was to endeavor to procure
legislation advantageous to the Catholic minority and members of the Catholic ohurch within the Province,
relating to the support and maintenance of separate schools of that
church. The petition also makes
charges of bribery, personation and
fraud, and asks that the election be
declared void and that Bernier be disqualified.

any attention to myself."
Crimsonbeak���I got the opinions of
two eminent lawyers on a certain
question of law the other day.
Yeast-Were their opinions the
samo?
Crimsonbeak���Yes; 835 each. ��� Yonk-
ers Statesman,
Tho lesson was from the "Prodigal
Son," and the Sunday School teacher
was dwelling on the character of tho
elder brother. "Hut amidst all the
rejoicing," he said, "there was one
to whom tho preparation of the feast
brought no joy, to whom the prodi
gal's return guve no pleasure, but
only bitterness; one who did not approve of the feast being held,and who
had no wish to attend it. Now, can
any of you tell me who this was?"
There was a breathless silence, foi
lowed by a vigorous euckling of
thumbs, and then from a dozen syin
pathetic little genuises eamo the cbor
ns, "Please sir. it was the fatted
calf. "���Louisville Post.
Here is a clever little "tit for tat,'
credited   to   the   bard of the   Boston
Journal,and probably founded on fact
Said a young and tactless husband
To his inexperienced wife:
"If you should give up gading.
Such a fashionable life
And devote more timo to cooking���
How to mix and when to bake���
Then perhaps you  might make pastry
Such as mother used to make."
And the wife,   resenting,   answered
(For the worm will turn you know);
"If you would give up horses
And a score of   clubs or so,
To devote more time tb business���
When to buy and what to stake���
Then perhaps you might make money
Such as father used to make."
Mrs. Buggins���I did something to-
lay that I've been screwing up my
courago to do for a long time. I paid
that odious Mrs. Bjoneseall I'vo owed
for a long time.
Mr, Buggins���I can sympathize
with you, my dear. I paid the odious
Mr. Bjones a bill I've owed just as
long.���Philadelphia Record.
"Why is is?" she asked, "that
when you are playing whist against
papa you make so many blunders?
You never seem to make mistakes
when he isn't in the game. Are you
awed by him?"
"Well, not exactly that, Miss Rockingham," ho answered. "You see, I
found out some time ago that your
father likes to win, and 1 want him
to have a kindly feeling for me. I
hope to���to have a favor to ask of
him one of these days, and���"
He hesitated. She looked into his
face, and then somehow hie arm got
around her and she whispered :
"Oh, Edward, how did you ever
guess that you had any reason to
hope?"
GOOD ADVICE.
The most miserable beings in the
world are those suffering from Dyspepsia and Liver Complaint. More
than seventy-five per cent, of the people in the Dominion are afflicted
with these two diseases and their
effects; such a Sour Stomach, Sick
Headache, Habitual Costivenesa, Palpitation of the Heart, Heart-burn,
Waterbrash, Gnawing Pa'ins at the
Pit of Stomach, Yellow Skin, Coated
Tongue and Disagreeable Taste in
the Mouth, Coming up of Food After
Eating, Low Spirits, etc. Go to your
Druggist and get a bottle of August
Flower for 75 cents. Two doses will
relieve you.* Try it. For sale by W.
F. Teetzel.
Follow the Crowd���And you will
get aboard an elegantly equipped,
dean, well lighted train on "The
North-Western Line" when you reach
St. Paul. If you are going east,
can't do better than to tell your home
agent you want to try the North-
Western. Wo will dp the rest. R. S.
