Nelson, British Columbia. Wednesday, March 29,   1899.
Ninth Yea
oners say Aguinaldo has declared
that if the Americans take the Filipino capital he will surrender.
NEW PHASE  PRESENTED.
Progress  Through   Jungle,
Fire, and Flood
HEROISM  IS TYPIFIED.
The Filipinos Defeated at Every Turn
and Fleeing to Their Oapital
For Safety.
Manila, March 28th.���9 p. m.���
The engineers are repairing* bridges,
the rebels haying tailed to destroy
the iron work. The railroad is kept
busy hurrying supplies to the front.
The country to Malalos is level with
streams and patches of wood but
there is no jungle. The American
troops will advince at daylight
taking four days' rations with them
and having two hundred rounds of
ammunition in their belts. They
expect to take Bocavo, on the railroad to the east of Bulacan, tomorrow. It is a difficult position, protected by streams. The American
line is 1200 yards from that of the
rebels. Desultory shots were exchanged today. Reports show 20
Americans kilted and 61 wounded on
our side yesterday. ' The Dak ota
regiment lost 10 killed and 37
wounded. According to prisoners
in the hands of the Americans,
Aguinaldo's generals, Garcia, To-
freo, and Pycheco, were with the
Filipino army yesterday and drove
their followers into the lirst aggressive demonstration. The rebels attempted to charge across the plain
east of the railroad, but the Americans charged to meet them and the
Filipinos bolted after a few shots,
leaving several men killed on the
field. The Filipino prisoners further declared the rebels have los't
all taste for fighting and their officers have to keep them in line by
beating them with swords.
One of the most brilliant and
costliest achievements of the campaign was the charge of Major Howard's battalion across the river.. Advancing at the double quick they
forded the river beneath them and
splashed across with a yell, swimming and wading with bullets spattering in the water,and rushed upon
the rebel trenches. Ten men were
killed and eleven were wounded in
the charge. At the capture of Mari-
lao there were several incidents
showing the bravery of American
troops. Some Filipinos were entrenched on an island in a bend of
the river. The Americans approached in a triangular formation
with the 3rd Artillery in the apex
and the Kansas and Pennsylvania
regiments forming the sides. Col.
Funston called for volunteers to
swim the river. Two men crossed
under fire and secured materials
with which a crossing was effected.
Major Bell of General MacArthur's
staff with Company I of the Pennsylvania regiment and Lieutenant,
Abernethy and ten men engaged in
similar exploits. After the Filipinos had raised the while flag
many of them attempted to run and
several were shot for so doing. In
the church yard of Marilao the
Americans found 30 newly made
graves of Filipinos and a dozon
bodies were seen drifting down the
river with gruesome wounds. The
prisoners are digging graves for
their former comrades. Many huts
are in ruins having been burned by
their inhabitants. The Americans
are not burning any buildings. Our
troops captured four Spaniards
who were fighting with the insurgents. Gen. MacArthur was under
a heavy fire yesterday.     The   pris-
The Latest Statement of the Samoan Difficulty.
Berlin, March 28.���The correspondent here of the Associated
Press has obtained from the highest
authority at this capital the following explanation of a feature of the
Samoan question which has lately
arisen. On the report that the
American Government has cabled
to its admiral at Samoa to act in
accordance with the decision of two
out of three of the representatives of the powers, the German
Government made earnest representations to the American Ambassador here that the Berlin treaty
requires the concurrence of the
three powers and called attention
to the dangers which were sure to
arise if there was any violation of
the treaty. The American Government made a frank and concilliatcry
answer which has caused much
satisfaction here. It recognized
the necessity for unanimity on ;he
part of all three powers under the
treaty as a condition of any settled
policy or permanent action and declared the admiral was only to act
in agreement with a majority of the
representatives of the powers in a
case of emergency which absolutely
does not admit of delay. But in
such a case the ratification or adjustment by the three powers must
be sought at the first possible moment, and no permanent arrangement can be made without such
unanimity. The American Government, it is added, cabled to its representatives in Samoa to pursue the
most friendly and conciatory pol icy
toward German representatives and
German interests,carefully avoiding
everything likely to be misconstrued
or to create ill. In consequence of
the stories regarding Mataafa hav
ing sanctioned sectarian religion
the German government assured
Mr. White that all its influence will
be against interference with the religion of any sect.

New York, Marcli 28.- At a
meeting of the Board of Aldermen
of Gr-riter New York today a motion requiring the use of eight

DEATH OF  A VICTORIAN.
Victoria, H. C. March 28.���Geo.
Jay, a resident of this Province for
37 years, died today after a long
illness. He was in Cariboo in the
sixties and from there came to Victoria where he has long been in bus-
ini" s as a seed merchant. He

Jay, a barrister.
Several Important Motions Passed by the Board of Trade.
Threatened Disastrous Results of Recent Legislation Enforcing an Eight Hours Day for

INCREASE IN TOBACCO.
New York, March 28.���At a
special meeting of the stockholders
of the American Tobacco Company
held today in Newark, N. J., it was
voted to increase the capital stock
from $37,000,000 to $70,000,000.
The increase which is all in common
stock is to be used to acquire the
Union Tobacco Co.
The two questions whieh of all others
are most intimately connected -with tb*
well beiug ot Kootenay were discussed
yesterday evening by the South Kootenay Board of Trade, namely the lead
question, aud the eight hours day for
miners. There was a good attendance
of membi n and Mr. G. 0. Buchanan,
President of the Kailo Board of Trade,
was present by special request. Mr. J.
A. Turner was elected to the ehnir.
3, Bv an arrangement by whioh lead
mined and smelted in Canada, can be
refined in bond in a foreign country,
nnd returned iuto Eugland free of duty.
Neaily the whole output of silver-lead
ore continues to be ahipped to the U. 8.
where it is charged with a duty of $30
per ton upon its lead contents.
Under   the    operation    of the tariff
i whieh has been in  force since July, 1897,
i the production of   lead   has fallen off
from 19,420 toui in '97 to about 17,000
! in '08,
Before proceeding to the brunt*ess of I    Under onr present tariff 5000 tons of
the meeting Mr. O.  M. Rosendftle was | dry white lead comes into Canada at a
elected member of the Board without
ballot. Mr Buchauan than rose and
before touching on the lead que"
tiou asked tbe Board to endorse a petition of the Lumberman's A&BOoiali'ic uf
Vancouver asking the Government to impose an import duty nf %'l n thousand on
rough lumber anil of 30 rents on shiugli'B
to enable B. C. mill meu to compete nu
equal terms with the Americans iu tbe
markets, ot Eastern Canada. He stated
that lhe Kaslo Board of Trade had en-
do aid tbe petition. After he had explained the fan*a of the situation (be
Board unanimously gave its sanction.
Mr. Buchanan tbeu addressed tin
Board and -dated that last year Mr. E .1.
Matthews, agent for Braden BroB. who
had a lease ou the Pilot Bay Bmelter, rep-
reseuted tbnt an increase iu tbe duty en
on lead would be sufficient encourage
ment to enable them to start lead smelt
ing and accordingly tbo Kaslo Board of
Trade took aotion on those linen. Th< y
wanted the wanted the Dominion Tariff
to be raised ou those commodities to a
lsvel with the Diugley Bill, whioh ib
praotioally prohibitive, the duties
amounting to 2 7-8 oeuts per lb. on dry
white lead, 2>j cents psr lb. ou lead bu'-
lion, 5 cents per lb on paints containing
lead, 3J4 cents on white acetate of lead,
I'... cents ou lead iu ore, and *i'.j cents on
lead iu sheets.
The Government intimated in reply,
that it would be best to let tbe matter
lie over for a year, aa tbey bad hopes ot
making a reciprocal treaty with the V.ti,
on these matters. The'tree admission ol
lead ores into the U. S. was all Kaslo
wanted, though it would hurt the smelling industry if the duty on bulliou ie-
mained. Tbe enormous impetus given
to mining would oounterbalnnoe this.
At present the annual export nf lead had
never reached '20,00(1 tous. His minima
tion wai there would have beeu no difficulty iu getting the duty taken off lead
ore and induced on lead bullion, bad the

speaker hud heen authorised to Impress
the necessity of notion upon the Government. He hail written to suob Min
iater , and Tory fully to the Mini-dor ot
Customs, lie thou rend the letter's letter which ia so full of iuterest that it is
reproduced here in (ull.
The lion. Wm. I'atterHon, Minister of
Customs,
Sir:���In view of the pause in the proceedings of tho Intel-national Commission, and the uncertainty of nny relief to
tho silver-lead Industry through the
medium of areoiprocal arrangement,1 ht'g
to direct your attention the suggestions
made hy the Kaslo Board of Trade last
year as to thn practical methods by which
the ill effects of the present U. 8. tariff
may be minimised,
1. By tbe substitution of a bonus to
he paid upon lead of Canadian origin,
smelted and refined in Ciiuadn, in lieu
of the bonus uow payable under Chap.
7, 68, 59 vie. entitled "An Act to nu-
courage lead (.melting."
2. By nn inorease ut the duty upon
lend     and   its     prnduets   coming   iuto
Canada.
(a) To tbe same ralos as now imposed
by the tariff of tbe U. 8.
(b). To the general average of tbe
duties now levied upon manufactured
goods now ooming into Cauada.
live per cent duty, about $3.50 per ton,
and 50(10 tons of pig lead at 15 per cent
or $7.50 per ton,
Tbe smelters in the U. S. whioh deduct from our miues tbe duty of $30
per ton, have the option of withdrawing
tbe duty and supplying Canada to tbe
extent of her requirements by paying
tbe duties as above.
We are strongly of opinion that the
best tolution of the difficulty would be a
reciprocal arrangement with the U. S.,
whereby lead aud its products would be
entirely free sb between the two countries. Until suoh time aa this can be
secured, we submit our product should
be upou the same basis an other goods
produced within the Dominion.
We desire to point out the manifest injustice in the tariff rating of
dry white lead and oxides, ochres,
oils, raw and boiled, and almost all
other material used in paint which
pay 25 per cent duty and the same
rate is levied on mixed paints,
whiie lead and zinc in the dry
state are admitted at 5 per cent.
The price of paint to consumers is
regulated by the cost of foreign
mixed paints, and the few Canadian
firms which carry on the very simple operation of grinding, profit by
the margin between the 5 per cent
duty on raw lead and the 25 per cent
on paint. In order that'we may
supply this very considerable item
of 5000 tons of dry white lead with
our own domestic product the business of lead corrosion must be established in Canada, but this can
scarcely be expected while the industry is left exposed to so close
competition as at present As tor
the proposition of the payment of a
bonus upon refined lead, the "act
for the encouragement of silver lead
smelting "was avowedly of an experimental character, aad a large
amount of money has been earned
under it, chiefly by smelters working
upon ores of gold and copper, but
inasmuch as no money has yet been
p��id under it, it can scarcely be supposed that it has had much effect
upon the development of the industry.
There are now in B. C. three
complete establishments ready for
the smelting of lead ores, and it is
probable that the payment of a
bounty of 50 cents per ton upon ore
smelted, would not appreciably encourage their operation* The es-
tablishmcntat the earliest practicable
date of a refinery in Canada enabling
us to prepare our smelted bullion
for the market in our own country
is however a desirable object. The
objections are���the first cost of a
plant which would probably
amount to $100,000, and further
the fact that it would for a series of
years operate at a disadvantage on
account of insufficient employment.
The payment for 5 years of a sum
equal to thnt now offered for imelt-
ing, to be paid at a rate of $3 per
ton of lead refined would be a de
cisive inducement for the establishment of a refinery. The bounties
paid by the iron and steel industries
have been adjusted from time to
time to meet the varying phases of
that industry, and have been renewed
since the advent of the present administration to power. And we
believe that the silver-lead industry
when freed from the initial difficulty
attendant upon the the marketing
of their lead product will take a
prominent place at the head of the
list of metallic substances mined in
Canada.
The bonding privileges which we ask
for, would afford uu immediate outlet for
our smelted bullion, pending the construction of refinery works iu Canada,
and would be au effective guard against
the abuse of a monopoly which might
otherwise arise.
Believing, as I do, that the Parliament
of Canada fully recognizes tbe necessity
of plaoing this industry upouaplaneof
equality with others in a similar position
iu the Dominion, 1 beg you will use your
iuliuenoe lo have our requests, an herein
embodied, carried out during this session
ot parliament.
The letter read, Mr. Buchauan stated
that Mr. Fielding bad promised, tbat if
the international negotiitions failed, he
would oonsider ibe best means of removing the disabilities under which the lead
industry labore.1. His ouly fear was that
aot'"-_ was being taken rather late in the
session. The importation of lead into
Canada had increased according to the
returns of seven mouths of the last fiscal year. The Hon. W. Patterson had
given him to understand that tuere would
be uo difficulty in arranging for tbe lead
to bo refined iu bond.
EIGHT HOURS LAW.
Mr. 8. ti. Fowler then introduced the
eight hours question which he described
as of more pressing importance than tin*
lead question, lie considered that tbis
would work to everyone's disadvantage.
The community wub satisfied with present
conditions. Tbe result ot such an act in
Utah was the exodus of the best miners.
This resolution was passed.
"That a oommitte be appointed by the
ohair to formulate a memorial to the
Minister of Mines, asking his influence
and interoessiou looking to the amelioration of the oouditions which are likely to
obtain if the Metalliferous Miuing aud
.\n��-   ������Hon Ant he enforced."
The committee consists of Mensra. 8
S. Fowler, Capt. Duncan, S, 8. Taylor,
H. B. Thomson aud J. Bannermau.
After passing a vote of thanks to Mr.
Buchanan tbe Board then adjourned.

that the Payue mine is the largest producer in British Columbia, has been
d ispelled by the publication of tho olllcial statistics of the taxes paid by the
various mines on their output for the
fiscal year ending June 80th, 1898."
Whatever is believed in London in respect to this matter is doubtless based
on what is said here ou the spot. It
has not heen claimed in British Columbia that the Payne is the largest
producer. The claim hero, and it
holds good to this day, iB that the
Payne is the largest dividend payer.
It has never been a qnestion of gross
output, nlthough the Payue in that regard is a close second to the Le Roi.
CRESTON.
Creston, the boom town nt the junction of the Crow's Nest Railway,is in
a state of inocuous desuetude. Although the snow has almost entirely
disappeared, tbe long promised boom
bas not swelled to the proportions
which were fondly anticipated. Delightfully located nt the junction of
the railway, in the midst of a fertile
agricultural region and i country
senmed with precious metals, it will
ultimately become one of the important centres of trade in West Kootenay.
Like most towns which are called into
being by the exigencies of railway
construction, it will never attain its
proper place from this cause alone but
must finally depend tor growth on
the resources which environ it.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier discarded his
mauly ways in his spneoh on the Address. It was a remarkable speech
for him, who bus always beeu noted
for extieme oonrtesy in replying to au
opponent. There was little courtesy
wasted on this latest ocension, He followed Sir Charles Tupper iu bis five
hours' atta-k rn the Government,
aud paid marked attention to the hou.
gentlemen. Mr. Foster, who was the
next to catch the Speaker's eye, said
the speech consisted almost entirely ol
personal tlagellatiou. It must have
been a surprise to the Opposition, and
the organs ot that party nre abusing
the Premier for the vigorous personal"
ities of his speech. They are at a loss
to account for the unusual tfine adopted but it will be sufficiently explained
if we consider that this is to be tin
last aud is, therefore, the lighting session of the present Parliament.
It was certainly a fighting speech,
and no doubt a full report of it will
be widely circulated. It was vigorous,
able, and in some respects stiong. But
there was lamentable weakness in his
defence of the conduct of the Government in respect to prohibition, i.u
douied that any pleJgu was made to the
prohibitionists or to the country iu
connection with tha plebiscite. Here
is his cuse:
"Let me say this: When we put
that plank into our platform there was
an implied agreement between the
members of tho party who believed in
prohibition nnd those who did not
believe iu it. The implied agreemeut
on the part of those who did not believe in prohibition was that if the
voice of the people spoke uumistake-
ably, if it should be shown that the
great majority of the electorate were
in favor of prohibition, then those
who did nut believe in it would surrender their views to those of their
brothers, and would work houostly
for the success of that policy. On the
other hand, there was an agreement ou
the part of those who believed in prohibition that if the voice of the people
on the subject should uot be of sufficient strength tu w.uiuui the adoption
by the party of the policy of prohibition, they also would square tneir
views to those of their brothers, and
we would hear no more of that question in the ranks ol' tho  party. "
We do not think the country, whioh
paid $800,000 for the plebiscite, has
anything to do wuh agreements or
understandings between sections of
the Liberal party as represented at the
Ottawa convention. It was ou account
of the agitation and because of the
persiateuco of the prohibitionists that
a plebiscite was made a part uf thu
party platform, and prohibitionists
and the country alike were distinctly
assured tbat lbs plebiscite, if yon,
would bo followed iiy legislation giving it effect, Tbe mure fact that the
plebiscite and prohibition, takou together, were incorporated in the plat
form was a positive, distinct pledge to
tho peoplu of Canada. It it were not,
party platforms are a sham and a
fraud.
Nothing was said to suggest that thu
vote should show a clear majority o1
tho entire electorate; prohibitionist"
and tho country were led to believe
that all tbat was necetsary was a majority of the votes cast, and if this were
obtained the declaration of the majority would lie supplemented by legislation to prohibit. It wns on this un
demanding tbe prohibitionists threw
themselves into thu oontOlt and, as is
alleged, spent three quartet* of u million in proseonting tlm campaign. To
���ay now that there was a private understanding aiming tbe coiiveiitiotiists
at Ottawu that   the   plebiscite   should 	
show a   majority   of   the   entire vote, |   ....    ��� ,,. ,,.,,,,, .

NELSON DAILY MINER, WEDNESDAY. MARCH 29, 1899
A MINIM STORY
LONDON PAPEE'S ACCOUNT OF FINDING THE HALL MINES.
Correspendent   Thinks   the   Hall
May    Pay   Dividends-
Some Notes*
Mines
hate purchased lots, 4, 6, 6, 7, 8, and
9, blocks 39, on Mill street, aud the
two former gentlemen have already
let contracts for tbe erection of residences thereon. The other two gentlemen also intend building in the immediate future.
In the fourth of his series ot   letters
to The Pall Mall Gazette, the   British
Columbia   correspondent   says:   "The
mining   division of  Nelson   is an important one from an  English   point of
view, for   within its   boundaries   are
situated many properties from   which
British shareholders fondly hope to extract    dividends.      It    is     devoutly
to    be   wished   for  their    sakes   as
well as for  the  reputation of  British
Columbia that tliese  dividends will be
forthcoming.    The chief English companies that have   invested   in the district are the Hall Mines, Limited, the
London  and   British   Columbia Gold-
fields, Limited,   the   Athabasca   Gold
Mining Company, the Duncan   Mines,
Limited,   and   the Ymir Gold Mines,
Limited.    The latter is an offspring of
the   Loudon   and     British   Columbia
Goldfields, and   it   may be mentioned
that this latter   company  his  secured
some properties  in the Slocan, including the Ruth and   Whitewater Mines,
which have also been floated  as a subsidiary  companies.    The   Hall  Mines
promoters led   the way   in  informing
the Londou market that   there is such
a   mining   region   as  Nelson   in   the
world. The  company   takts   its name
from the Brothers Hall, who got  hold
of tho property  in   rather a  romantic
way more than   a   decade   ago.    They
contrived to make a   living from their
crude   working    of the   silver-copper
deposit on Toad   Mountain, and   tben
they came across  the ubiquitous company promoter,   who   obtained an option on the property.   For a time London men did not look   favorably  upon
the proposition from the wilds of British  Columbia.    It   is   even  reported,
though I oannot find any   sponsor  for
the story, that one finanoier   when approached   asked the remarkable   question,   'Where   is   British  Columbia?'
and prooeeded to answer  it himself by
saying, 'Let's see, it's in South America, isn't it?"   It is not too  much   to
say that the flourishing  City  of  Nelson owes   not a  little  of   its present
prosperity to  the  opening  up  of the
Silver King lode  aud   the  subsequent
establishment  by the Company of the
smelter.    The    company   own   about
twenty claims, covering   in all  about
600 acres     Sooie are in a silver-copper
belt, and others  are   iii   a  silver   on
the gold belt   in   the  sauto  geological
formatiou.    It was not until April last
that the directors felt themselves  able
to   pay   a  dividend,   aud   subsequent
events proved that they were   a  little
too previous even then.    Expert  opinions go to show,  however,   that with
tbe strictest economy and  experienced
management, the   Company may, in a
year or two,   enter   upon a  period   of
profit-taking."

FROM BOHEMIA.
Van Huniselaar had eat through many
in embassy dinner, eating messy dishes
out of nl'li us and frilled papers and
Dili mil* his polyglot remarks to many a
foreign celebrity, bnt he glanced to-
v. .��iil his left hand neighbor -with some
Apprehension us he finished his soup,
making a hasty itudy of the princess,
with her blue black hair and her Bwar
thy side face. There was a display of
shoulder and blazing green jewels in
the corsage, an impression of large outline and a pervasive personality. Clearly she -was uot attractive, he decided,
ami then, as she finished what bhe had
I ������* 11 saying to the man who took her
out and turned toward Van Rensselaer,
he instantly reversed his judgment
nuder the compulsion of her dark eyes.
Whether or not ihe was haudsome by
ordinary standards he oould not have
told, but attractive and interesting cei-
taiuly, and inexplicably odd. With her
large red lipped mouth and gleaming
white teeth she might have been u quadroon or sho might have posed to good
effect aia gypsy queen in private theatricals.   Sho spoke to him in French.
"I sui pusuyou are a senator or a general, or perhaps a cabinet member? You
American men are so osteututiously
pluin iu dress. Yon abstain so carefully
from wearing your decorations on yuur
���.'veiling coats that a poor foreigner may
uot know."
He laughed. She waa andaoious even
for a princess.
"1 am sorry, your highness, but 1
have neither offioe nor insignia to my
name. Indeed I have been puzzling my
inglorious head not a little to know
why I am placed so illustriously at your
side!"
But ha knew, and so did she, that it
wan because he spoke French like n Parisian and was the cleverest diner out in
Washington. It was not until the lirst
entree that they again took a turn, and
she passed with evident islief from the
heavy German of the Austrian embassador to her more aooustomed tongue.
They tutted and hazarded suggestion's
n- to the composition of the dish before
them.
"Permit me, monsieur," she broke
off suddenly. "Allow me one more
gness, more intimate���personal! lam
a clairvoyant, it has beeu said, and I
hare taken a great liberty. I hnve been
reading your thoughts. Will you allow
me to tell you?"
Van Reusielaer bowed, smiling his
Incredulity.
"You do me muoh honor, madame!"
"Very well. Yon were looking down
the table a moment ago wben I addressed you, past tho green and gold Bohe
un an |,'ass. I do not know what yon
saw, but it was something very far
away���oversea, I think." He flushed
slightly and assented. "We spoke of
the entree, your mind on, other things.
1 said, 'It is made of fish, I fancy,' and
you replied, 'Since ilia a game of guess,
I choose lobster.' What you were thinking was, 'It is tha world old mess of
pottage���to be henoeforth my daily
bread!' N'eit ce pas, monsieur, uu bon
hasard?"
Van Rensselaer finished his wine and
���et down his glass. He waa not smiling
now, and the flush had died out of his
cheek. He looked at her with a gravity
very like displeasure.
"Your highness il indeed clairvoyant It was not a gneia. It wns the
truth. Princessei always tell the tinth,
do thiy not?"
She made no reply, and the jewels in
ber piled up hair bnrned not half so
dieply as her eyes. He wished that people who were clairvoyant would not
fall to his lot at dinner. It was distinctly uncomfortable and not eondnoive to
good digeition.
"Is it too much," tald the princen
���ottly, "to ask what the birthright
was?"
It wai  too mnch decidedly, and yet
before he knew he aniwered, "Mn.-ic"
"Ah!"    murmured   bis   questioner.
"And now?"
"Now," laid Van Rennelaer, smiling once moreai be shrugged his shoulders, "now, I am Darby. But perhaps
Darby aud Joau are nol indigenous to
Russian society."
Through tbe orohidi a faoe was smiling greetings to him.
"How despairingly eharming!" ligh-
ed the Russian ai ihe laid down her
lorgnette.   "And that ii Joau?"
There was an exasperation tor Van
Keusselner in the finality of tbis woman's intuitions.
"Priuoesa" be laid when next they
turned toward each other, "I am haunted by a resemblance. I think my subconscious mind, if I have one, had gone
wandering over time and space to verify it when you caught me napping. I
have never seen bat one woman who
looked like you���it was years ago in
my student daya She alto waa a prin
cess���uf Bohemia I"
"That was ouoe my country," she re-
-plied.
Van Rensselaer laughed. "Bnt not
ben���or mine. There it another aud
greater Bohemia where inch as you
may uot dwell. Yourt it geographically
located. Thoother it not ItilNoMan's
Laud. At it happtutd, that other prin-
cast belonged to both Bohemias."
" Who wet she���ind what?"
"Pardon me. Sbe had yonreyet, bnt
not your anctitry. She wu a gypsy *��io-
linii't in Prague. I bave never time
���eeu eyes liki hers nntil tonight, and
I shall ueveragain bur a tone like thai
from ber violin."
If  he thougkl  ha had punished ber,
he wis mtttiken. She drew in ber
breath with an odd little sigh and look-
ed at him from under ber lowered lids.
"I again rend your thought, mou-
tieur, and I honor you for it. You are
laying to yourself that her real tank
wus as fur above mine as your Bohemia
was a happier land to dwell in thau���
let ns say Russia !"
It was after dinner wben the women
were grouped in knots in the long drawing room that the princess managed to
learn what she wanted to know of her
neighbor nt the table.
"Van Rensselaer���oil, yesl" said the
hostess. "Wecall him Fortunatus; he's
such n lucky dog. He's the last of an
impoverished old Amerioan family���if
there is such ti thing as an old family
in so young a country���and was quite
ont of sorts with fortune when he mot
his wife. I believe he wus knocking
about Europe consorting with ull sorts
nf shabby mimical people, studying to ba
a pianist. Sbe fell so desperately in
love with him that her father wai
obliged to allow the marriage. She bnd
always had her whims gratified, and
she threatened to kill herself if denied
this oue. There was some delay abuut
it, and then the wedding took place
with the oompact���so I have beeu told
���that he was to give np his profession.
I fancy that was no great hardship,"
she laughed, "as the price was $3,000,-
000 dowu and the hand of the richest
heiress iu America. It is not a difficult
metier to bo rich, princess I"
"I think it is sometimes very difficult, " was the surprising answer.
It was at the bidding of a scented
note with a corouet on it that Van Rensselaer found himself a few days later
entering the apartments of the Russian.
"It's a thundering annoying sort of
thing having your mind read, and I
hopo she won't be up to it again," he
grumbled.
She was clad iu flowing red garment!,
ornamented with gold filigree, and a
finely wrought gold girdle hung down
from the clasp to the hem. Van Rensselaer felt the costume to be io barbaric as to be out of good form���too theatrical���and yet her manner was simple
enough.
"We were speaking that night," the
began ns if they had just left off, "of
music, Hungarian music, or were we
ouly thinking of it? 1 was hoping yon
would play for mo today."
"1 never play, uever touch a piano
any more." And he felt a thrill of annoyance, as if some one hud pushed
against him roughly.
The princess arose and crossed the
room, taking up a violin that lay on
the open piano. "Theu you will listen
to me?" she said.
It was Schubert, aud she playud with
inch mastery of the instrument, such
sympathy aud love of the work, that
Van Rensselaer was moved out of hit
reserve. He laid aside his bat and
| gloveB and sat down by the piano. Once
more he threaded through exquisite
bantu no���!��� aud tilled tbe scheme with
the piano accompaniment he knew so
wall. For more than an hour they played with uo words save: "Do you remember this?" ot "Auother composer
has solved that problem thus���you know
it," lending and following by turui
through those pnths where only muii-
cians may walk iu happy knowledge.
"And uow, "said the princess at lait,
"do you remember?" She stood straight
and tall in ber barbario reds, the gold
ornaments gleaming iu the late slanting
light, mil \ an Reusielaer hud no need
to wait for the strains that were coming. He was back again in student days,
and through the cigar smoke of the music hall iu Prague he could iee the gita-
ana, more ilim and girlish, but with
the same strange eyes and the blue
black hair, while above tbe cliuk of the
beer glasses and the toft shuffling of
the waiters' feet he conld hear the
witchery of her gypsy music���tbat half
remembered strain that had teaied him
so often through the intervening yeirs.
Back and forth flashed the bow while
her figure swayed to the mad motions,
and then came the sad cadence with the
heartbreak iu it thatoften chanoterizei
the Hungarian music Here she broke
off aud laid the violiu ou tbe piano.
Then she came and put her hand on
Van Rensselaer's shoulder.
"You know me now. I also wai a
Bohemian and I also (old my birthright
for a tniu of pottagel Ah, comrade, it
ia a grand country, that Bohemia I Bnt
we were not worthy of it, and there ii no
going back! But it it still left to ui to
be true���true to a compact, and one dishonor ii suougb I"
The princen held out her hand in
farewell end diimistal, and Van Rensselaer kissed it reverently. He felt unsteady ou hit feet, at if he had been
drinking.
"Uoodbyl" the tald brokenly. "I
shall uot see you again, for 1 am going
away tomorrow���Lack to my Darby iu
Uussia 1 shall think of you loiuetimes
wheu I dream of Bohemia, and I shall
pray that you be nut too unhappy in your
| exile. Be good to your .loan!"���Annie
