WANT AMERICANS TO STAY
CHINESE BEG GENERAL CHAFFEE
TO KEEP   HIS TH00PS IN
PEKIN.
GERMANS ARE WKATIIY BECAUSE
AMERICANS WILL   NOT TURN
OVER THE MAIN GATE;
I'likiii. April 33.���Many applications
have been made to Mr. Ruelchill and
General Chaffee by Chinese of all degrees for the detention in China of
American troops until the general
withdrawal of troops of all the powers. Many of tho.-e who are making
this request tliink the withdrawal
of Americans will make the others
remain longer. There uro also people
who do not desire to see any of the
soldiers go, fearing - anarchy und an
in prising against foreigners.
Field Marshal Von Waldersee bus
made application   that the. gate of the
Forbidden city be guarded by German troops after the departure of the
Americans. General Chaffee bus replied that American soldiers will continue, to guard thu gate. At this the
Germans are Indignant, saying tills
Impugns their honesty und that If the
United States desires to do her -Share
of policing the city she shoulo leave
behind enough troops for thut purpose, that merely u few men bu?ong-
ing to the legal ion guard should control the gute that would be within
the Gerinun quurters Cannot be ul-
lowed. If Qenetal Chaffee persists In
this course diplomatic representations will bo made in the mutter.
The ministers of tho foreign powers ure meeting #duily. Tbey do not
at present show u disposition to reduce the clulms which many think to
be extremely reiisonablo.
It Is understood at Washington that
the Chinese plenipotentiaries at
I'ekln, Prince Ching und LI Hung
Chung, are prepared to give 0 guarantee to the powers for the protection
of all foreigners In China If the foreign troops now stationed then- are
withdrawn. 11ns Is understood to be
the basis of the withdrawal  of  10,000
French troops and it is earnestly hoped among Chinese otllcials that this
will be followed by a similar movement on the par of the other foreign
forces in China.
Quebec, April 33.���A public meeting
of the citizens was held today and a
big deputation appointed to go to Ottawa and urge the government to purchase the Plains of Abraham In spite
of tlie objection of Hon   R. R.   Dobel.

CHARGES AND   ADDITIONAL
BLACKGUARDING.
CANADIAN  PUBLISHERS DEMAND
AMENDMENTS     TO    ENGLISH
HILL   ON COPYRIGHTS.
(SPECIAL TO Till'. HUMOR.)
Ottawa, Ont,, April 23.���Tho taking
of evidence ill tlie Coouk charges before the senate committee -vus continued today. M. 11. Cameron, barrister
of Goderieh, produced all of his father's papers. The only interesting one
among them was one from Cook in
which he told Cameron that he had
culled on Liuirlcr and Mowat and
found Luurier like an iceberg und
Mowat had Insulted him by saying
ihe government want "more bruins"
In the senutc.
In his evidence today Cameron waB
asked by Couk's counsel whut had
brought him lo Ottawa and Cameron
replied indignantly to "vindicate|my
father's memory and to prevent If
possible the production of my father's private letter book by Unit bluck-
guurd, my brother-in-law,"
Dr._\Vilson, upon whom this epithet
was bestowed, sat within a few feet
of the; witness. Dr. Wilson In his evidence hud stilted thut he too was anxious to shield the late M. C.Cameron's
memory, but it appeals thut ho produced the private letter book not only
without tlie consent of Mr, Cameron',,
widow and son, but ugninst their
hlrong protest. S. II. Blake protested uguinst the principal of producing
private and confidential correspondence. The argument of counsel is fixed for tomorrow.
Hon. Sydny Fisher, minis er of agriculture was waited on today by a
delegution from Toronto which presented to him an important matter
affecting the copyright interests of
Canudu. The delegutos represented a
recent conference of the publishing
and printing interests of Canada and
come down under the auspices of the
Toronto board of trade. The point
raised was in connection with the
Loid Moukswell copyright bill now
before tbe British liouse of lords. The
delegates asked that Lord Monkswell's
bill should be so amended as to make
it clear that a colony could grant a
license to print a book without being
forced, if called upon, to give a license for exclusive importation.
Mr. Gage strongly urged the need
for snch an amendment if Canada's
interest were to be protected. A draft
clause was submitted containing the
proposed amendment and the government was asked to forward it to England and to back it up with adequate
support.
Before the order pi the day were
called McLean of East York again
brought up tbe question as to whether
May 24th was to be a public holiday
this year, and urged the necessity of
au curly answer. The premier said
that an answer would be given on
Monday.
On the house going into supply the
estimates of the depaitment of railways were taken up.

GLOVE MATCH ARRANGED
BURNS AND   GOFF TO  MEET   IN
NELSON ON MAY
loTII.
A TWENTY ROUND  CONTEST FOB
A PURSE OF FIVE HUNDRED
DOLLARS.
Jimmie Burns and Charlie Goff, the
pugilists who fought a hard battle at
Rossland recently, will meet again in
this city on the 10th of May in a
twenty-round contest for a purse of
S500. Articles were closed last night
for the mill and the sportsmen of Nelson are promised by all-odds the finest
spurring exhibition ever brought off
in the city. Manager Armstrong of
the Rossland Athletic club, who engineered the meeting at Rossland, has
been in the city for seveial days iu
connection with the arrangements for
the exhibition,and last night the final
details were settled, a $r>0 deposit being put up to ensure the contest coming off. May 10 was selected as the
best date for the affair in order that
tlie men might have an opportunity to
get into shape befoie the meeting.
Both are now in semitruining and a
couple of weeks work will euBily put
them in splendid condition.
Churlie Goff hulls from Spokane and
Is a boxer of very considerable ability. In the fight with Hums at Kossland he acted gamely and took much
punishment before receiving the blow
tbut put him out of business. At no
stage of the game had he Burns going
and it was generally thought that a
little more aggression at that juncture
would huve reversed the tubles. Jimmy Burns is a Chicugo man and has
fought a number of good buttles and
been successful in tlie majority of
them. He is a heavier man thun Goff
and generally regarded as somewhut
slower. Golf's quickness will therefore offset Burns' weight; nnd the
concensus of opinion among those ut
the ringside in their battle at Koss-
lund was that had Golf cjnteuted himself with getting awuy after delivering the blows his science enabled him
to plate, instead of pushing the fighting from the stnrt, he would have de-
fcute4 his big opponent. Golf was
Corbett's tiniucr in one of the ex-
chumpion's lights. The meeting at
Nelson Is, of course, an exhibition of
sparring ueeoidlng to the . articles
signed, but it is the best thing of the
kind ever arranged for this city.
Burns Is now in Rosslumi but will
arrive In Nelson today und is to commence training at once. He will he
accompanied by nls trainer, George
Lawler, "the Irish Giant" und the
two will make their headquarters at
the Hotel Hume. Goff is In Spokane
and will be In Nelson within a few
days. He Is expected to remain ut the
Phalr during the period   of   training.
Rleh0.Cn--, Que., April 33.���John
McMorine, a pioneer of this pluce and
father of Alex McMorine, of Victoria,
B. C, died this morning aged 70
yeurs.
G. M. Bosworth, of Montreal, and
W. R. Maclnnes, of Winnipeg, are in
the city today. They will spend the
day here, leaving for Rossland this
evening. Mr. Bosworth is freight
traffic manager of th C.P.R., his jur.
isdiction extending over the entire
system, while Mr. Mclnnes is western
traffic manager with a division extending from Lake Superio.-, in the
east to the coast and San Francisco
The two officials have been on a five
weeks tour of the west and arrived
last night from tbe coast spending a
day at Sandon en route. Captain Mac-
donell joined the party at Sandon.
Mr. Bosworth'b visit to the country
is likely to inaugurate some changes
in freight facilities or rates, as he is
the couit of final appeal in matters
relating to   the  hauling   of   freight.
��� Business is quiet about the C P. R.
depot, a decided lull in freight traffic
having put in an appearance. This
is a perfectly natnral condition of
affairs and crops up annually at tbis
season of tbe year. The reason is that
business men generally are withholding shipments until the lake rail rates
take efl'eet,. As navigation opens at
the end_of thu week or rather the
middle of next week, it is safe to
predict a very lively rush of freight
by the middle of May when the first
installment of shipments over the
Luke Superior waterway is about dhe
to reach Nelson. W. R. Maclnnee,
weBt-rn freight manager, Btated yesterday that the company is now making contracts on the lake rail rate
basis. The local railroad people have
taken advantage of the few duys rest
afforded them by cleaning up the
yard and division of empty cars in order that the anticipated rush of business may be handled with the utmost
expedition. With the facilities now
afforded in this section, the company
will have no difficulty in handling all
the freight that can be sent in over
the Crow's Nest road without the
slightest friction.
The announcement by the Great
Northern system of the change in the
schedule affecting Nelson as foreshadowed In The Miner a few days since
Is of very material importance to the
business and travelling public generally. Under the new time card the
morning train for Spokane is likely
to leave the Union depot within a few
minutes of nine o'clock, and, by making fuster time on the south run, will
urrive at Spokunc ,-ib early as the
train leaving now ut 7 o'clock. The
connection with tho westbound liyer
ou the inuin line of the Great Northern will be close und passengers for
the coast uro to be deposited at Seattle on the morning of the following
day, making the entire run under 24
hours. Returning the time is about
the same. The Spokane train may
arrh-e here as eurly us .1:30 o'clock in
the afternoon, the lojul ollloluls being
of the opinion that the time card can
be arranged to accomplish tills. By
this means the eastern mall will arrive in Nelson a couple of hours curlier thun nt the present time uud
quite ub early as could be secured If
the mull wus carried around by Kuskonook on the schedule now  In fotee.
Under the now time card, however,
the time by the Nelson & liedlington
run Is likely to be slower than ut present and will certainly be a couple of
hours behind the ull-rull route direct
from Spokane to Nelson. Naturally
thu request to huve the mulls diverted
will be dropped unless the Greut
Northern Bhould run a train out of
Bonner's Ferry connecting with the
west bound transcontinental train
and the Kootenav ir.ail diverted there
instehd of going to Spokane for redis-
tiibution. Thia would bring the
mall in here several hours earlier
than could otherwise be secured but
no hint of a change as Indicated has
been given us yet.
The C. P. K. has not jet announced
its Pan-American exposition rates,
but as a matter of course thev will be
similar to the rates announced by
the American roads, vi/., single fare
return. An official statemei' in t"
head is expected daily. The rate announced is generally regarded as a
reasonable one and quite as much as
the railroads could have been expected
to grant at this time. If rate-slashing
is ever inaugurated in the race for
eastern business arising out of the big
Buffalo show it will be later on in
the season. The attendance at the exposition may not come up to the expectations of the management and in
this event they are sure to appeal to
the railroad people to come to their
assistance with lower rates. Reductions brought about in this way often
lead to a general cut in which the ordinary conventions of the passenger
business are disregarded.
One effect of the resumption of the
direct passenger service between NeJ-
son and Spokane is that all express
will be handled by rail and the clear-1
ing of goods billed to Nelson by the
customs officer at Rykerts will be dis-1J
continued. In fact a number of the
powers of attorneys by Nelson business men iu favor of the officer ut tbe
boundary line have already been
withdrawn and in a short time the
practice will be discontinued. It is
understood that a new system of clearing express goods through the customs
will be inaugurated in Nelson and that
in this respect the practice will be
similar to that followed in all commercial centers of any importance.
In this way the convenience of local
business men will be materially expedited and the customs officials will
have less trouble in handling the business.

Work has been progressing steadily
for several weekB past in the C. P. R.
yards, and within a few duys the tusk
will be completed and the road in
splendid condition. Several thousand cars of material from Five Mile
point have been deposited in the yards
and the level of the entire area has
been raised several feet. Finishing
touches are now being made to the
west end of the yard, where material
is being put in for a double track leading to the main line. When this is
completed, probably by the end of the
week, the yard will be turned over us
complete. It is likely that the next
improvement inaugurated at the yard
will be the extension of the stores
building, which hus been undei contemplation for some time.
That the woik at the new bridge
across the Columbia at Sprout's landing is rapidly ' nearing completion is
indicated by the fact that extensive
shipments of cut stone for the copings
or last course of the piers and abutt ���
ments, are now passing through from
the quarry on the Procter line. This
stone is the finest product of the
quarry, each of the stones weighing
half a ton und upwards, and being absolutely free from the truce of Iron
which mars the perfection of material
used in bridge building. The work
has adavneed to a point where the
danger from high water is InCaltls-
imul.
London, April 23,���The Gazette this

of the Royal Canadian Dragoons for
conspicuous bravery at Kooraatipoort
j river on Novembei 7, lUOO, in protecting the artillery from capture. The
Gazette also makes the announcement
that Robert Gnnth and Wyn-iham S.
POital have been made baronets.
The annual return of recruiting
for 1000 shows a total enlistment of
08,301 against 42,700 in 1800. The recruiting for tlie infantry is regarded
as unsatisfactory. In spite of tlie impetus of the war and the reduction in
tlie standard of height, the number
of enlisted infantrymen is below that
of 1800, the recruits generally having
preferred the showier branches of the
service.
Applications for the new war loan
continue to pour into the Bank of
England. The subcribers today
though numerous were mostly small
investers. It is estimated thut the
loan was subscribed for six or seven
times over aud it is expected that the
list, will be closed tomoirow as it is
not desired to lock up too much
money. In the house of commons today various members sharply criticized the budget inciease of the income
tax and the chancellor of the exchequer, Sir Michael Hicks-Beach,
replied that more money must be raised somehow. None of the objections
suggested a better way. He hoped
that the additional taxation might
br'ng home to the country the virtues
of economy, The income tax resolution was adopted by ,100  to 88 votes.

SITUATION AT VICTORIA.
Very praiseworthy efforts are being
made by newspapers supporting the
government to minimize tin- seriousness of the dissentions whicli are to
ba noted among Premier Duosmuir's
followers, but it cannot for a moment
be doubted that the situation is full
of peril and the outcome by no means
easy of estimation. The refusal of
seven members who sit to tlie right of
Mr. Speaker to swallow the govern*
ment programme in the matter of
railways cannot but be regarded as a
circumstance whicli implies disaster
unless shrewd diplomacy is displayed.
The premier is anything hut a dilpo
mat; and his colleagues can hardly be
given credit for possessing ability of
the soit which is demanded il the
rocks and shoals are to be avoided. All
signs indicate that tioublous times
are ahead of us in matters political.
All who have the true interests of the
country at heart will regret very
much that circumstances have arisen
which place the government ill jeopardy. A defeat for the government
ut this juncture would do incalculabl
barm to the country. The opposition
is weak, disintegrated and mistrusted
and a break-up at Victoria at this
time would result in nothing snort of
chaos. Further developments in the
situation will be awaited with tin
keenest anxiety.
T1I1C  WAR    IN Al-'RICA.
The. latest news regarding the operations iu South Africa is, on tlie
whole; satisfactory. The Boers aie
surrendering in small batches and
their agressiveness lias diminished to
11 very noticeable degree. Lord Kitchener's proclamation to the effect that
any resident of the martial law districts of Cape Colony found in arms
will be liable to the most severe penally should have a salutary effect.
Lord Kitchener is apparently putting
into operation the delayed plan of
campaign for which his new field force
is intended. The mounted army is
tlie lurgest ever placed in the Held by
any nation. The regular cavalry comprise some 14,000 men. and the colonials about 50,000. There are. 7,000 or
8,000 regular mounted infantrymen,
and the Imperial Yeomanry will
eventually reach a total of over '-'0.-
000.    The artillery comprises over 1'.,-
000 men, and has more than 800 Impounder and IS-pounder guns. Some
twenty ammunition columns are ap
pointed to various columns and are
composed of men drawn from various
sources, including the uimy service
corp and the cavalry reseive in ling
land. In round figures, Kitchener has
a mounted force of about 80,000 men.
Willi this great mobile force, together
with Infantry sulllcienl to bilug the
grand total to nearly a quarter of a
million of men, tho British cominun
der-in-eliief has set out to complete
the subjugation of the Boer republics.
The movement northward of Klerks-
drop by Uuwlingsnn. und l'lumer's occupation of I'ietersburg und hi; movements id ill further to tlie north, is
likely to be followed by u movement
up the railroad leading from the Fre-
toriu- Lorenzo Marques line noi th
through the Lvdenburg district to
Leydtidorp. This disirict north of
Pretoria is called the bush veldt
tvllloli is incorrectly characterized ns
il fever-stricken country where neither
man nor beast, not acclimated can escape tin' dreaded fever. This is scarcely true. In winter it is the healthiest
part of the Transvaal, und to it the
Hour fanners trek   when the  grass on
1 lie veldt to tlie south becomes parched nii'l unlit for the live stock to cut.
The bush veldt Is u long strip of
wooded cou-iti-y which runB roughly
east'by west In a lino fifty miles to
the north of Pretoria, It lies somewhat lower thun the surrounding
coiiutrv.iind for this reason maintains
throughout tlie year a warm mean
temperature. There nru never frosts
there, though on the high taldc-lunds
about Middlohurg and Belfast, not
thirty miles away, night frosts uro
both frequent anil hitter in the winter
Season, A series' of tetters recently
printed in the (Jape Times, uniler
heading. "A Boer on the War" and
written bv one of tho number who
wete captured with I'rinsloo by General Hunter, affords Instructive light
upon fin- feelings of the respective
parties to the great struggle now   up-
proaeblrg an end. This write! I�� obviously a mun of peaceful and moderate views. He tells that '-never in
history has a war been so mercifully
waged on both sides.*' and adds: "In
face of everything said to tlie contrary,
there is very little hatred between
the true Hriton and the Boer." This
is gratifying, to begin witli. He admits that there is bitterness on the
Boer side, however, growing out of
the surrender of l'rinsloo's commando,
but avers that it comes wholly Irom
the Boers being deceived by their lying and conscienceless leaders.
GOOD FOR BB8INBS8.
In an article whioh lias attracted a
great deal of attention, Alfred Harms
worth, editor of the London Daily
Mail, argues that il is very benelicial
in a business sense for a King to rule
Great Britain. The world has passed
from the realm of sentiment to tlie age
of business, and In Edward VI1. we
have one who is above all a man of
affairs. Not enough is known on
this side of the Atlantic of the marked aptitude ol our King as a diploma
list, a negotiatoi and a bard-working
business man. His only rival in this
matter among tlie world's sovereigns
is ins nephew, William of Germany
and no one will gainsay the fact that
for discretion and savoii-faire lOdward
VII. is more than a mutch for William
II. It bodes well for the world's
peace that friendship, as tlie u-sult of
the emperor's visit, will be firm
'twixt Iiiin and his German nephew.
The thiee nations do not always see
eye and eye; no treaty will ever link
them, perhaps, but there will he thut
between them, it is to be hoped, which
wu of the work-a-iluy world know as
a "business undertaking." Edwurd
VII. needs no training for his office.
For some years past ull important
foreign diplomatic dispatches have
been sent to Mailborougb House us
well ns to the queen, a precedent in
English history. He has gathered
about bim in Sir Francis Knowles.Si
Stanley Clarke, Mr. Sydney Grevillc
and other accomplished and businesslike men who have attended to vast
correspondence and an Infinite amount
of oflice work in a manner that, has glv
en universal satisfaction to tlie Empire. As a business people we need a
busin.Ss King, and we have the man
vre_w_.it,
Tbe provincial government has displayed wisdom in abandoning ils da-
termination to make un increase in
tlie poll tax at the present time.
A rumor is afloat to the effect that
four more members in tlie federal cabinet Waal be given to British Columbia. It seems almost too good to be
true.
Jake Gaudaur is sighing for fresh
fields to conquer. If Jake keeps at it
long enough he will meet bis match
���that is what happens to all champions sooner or later.
It is now _eeu that Emperor Wil
Ham huo good grounds for supposing
that an attempt on his life wus plan
ned. The mirth which wus en
gendered ut the lirst reports of the
Kaiser's alarm wJH be turned to sympathy.        	
The interesting announcement comes
from Chicago that the Cudiihy companies are contemplating the estab
lishmcnt of a large pucklng pluut ut
Calgary. It Is argued that should the
concessions be granted, the Cud ally 8
would be in a position to supply th
entire Northwest from that point, and
would enjoy uu udvuntugo of position
that would almost bur out competi
tirn. With u Canadian plant packing
Canadian cattle, they would be in u
position to bid successfully OU government contracts fur supplies to the
British unny and thu Canadian
mounted police. Esquimau, on the
North Pacific coast, being tlie naval
station of the north I'aeilic squadron
of tlie British navy, they also would
be able to furnish tho navy with Its
meat supplies.
CURRENT COMMENT
THE PROVINCIAL   GiiVEIlNMENT.
According to seiisalionnl reports
sent out from Vlciorln und published
in various Mainland newspapers, the
duys of the Provincial government un
numbered. Indeed, according to some
of these reports, Wednesday next is
tlie date on which tlie government
will meet its defeat. It is scarcely
De06SSarjl to say to anyone who has
an Intimate knowledge of the situation, that there is no real ground for
such reports. Of course, it is always
possible for something unanticipated
to happen and a government may
moot defeat as unexpectedly as did
Lord   Hosehery's    administration   in
isofi in committee of supply on a vote
for a trilling sum in connection with
the store, of cordite. But, humanly
speaking, there is no reason to believe thut the Duusniuir government
will not pass safely through the remainder   of   this   session    unless    it
should be guilty of some stupendous
piece of folly or be betrayed Into some
tactical Blunder by the indiscretion
of one or more of Its members. -Vancouver News-Advertlser,

QUESTION ANSWERED.
Yes, August Flower still has the largest sale of uny medicine in the civil- \
ized world. Your mothers and grandmothers never thought of using any
thing else for Indigestion or Bilious-1
ness. Doctors were scarce, und they
seldom heard of Appendicitis, Nervous
Prostration or Heart fa"ure, etc.
They used August Flower to clean out
tlie system and stop fermentation of
undigested food, regulate the action
of the system, and thnt is all they
took when feeling dull and bad with
headaches and other aches. You only
need u few doses of Green's August
.'lower, in liquid form, to make you
satisfied there is nothing serious the
matter with yon. For sale by VV. F.

Wallace and W. Telford for the gold

the game was well contested, resulting in W. Telford's favor by a score
of 31-8. Hell and Hedley have still to
play to see which will wear the
bronze button. On account of unfavorable weather only one game was
played in the second draw, Purdy vs.
Geo. Thompson, the former winning
by a score of 31-13. All the members
are requested to play off their games
in the second draw as soon as possible.

CHEW FOOD.
Chewing Preserves the Teeth and Helps
Digestion.
The finest specimens of teeth are
seen in animals and human beings
who chew   the food thoroughly.
Dentists agree that teeth must he
used to properly preserve them and
therefore they urge people to chew
their food thoroughly,but ihe nervous,
hurried manner o* eating is altogether too common among people and
when fed on soft mushes Ihey lire liable to swallow tin.1 food without ehew-
ing.
Dyspepsia and bad teeth ate the result if tills practice ih continued. Tine
one can eat soft food without detriment if the necessity of chewing is
remembered, Grape-Nuts food Is so
erisp anil brittle and withal so pleasant to the taste that the user can not
forget to cbew and thus the teeth get
the necessary use and the glands of
the gums are made to give the juices
that Nature Intends shall be mixed
.vith the food before it enteis the
stomach. A New York doctor says
many New Yorkers put a little sugar
on oatmeal and then cover with Crape-
Nuts, and this method compels the
chewing _nccessary to digest the oatmeal.
(1 rape-Nuts food is prc-iiigested
and also helps In' digestion of other
food. The doctor's plan might do for
a variety, but drape Nuts and cream
alone are considered ideal by hundreds
of thousands of brainy people. There
are other reasons why those who cut
drape-Nuts look nourished and well
fed. The fond is made of parts of the
Held grains which Nature makes use
of in rebuilding brain and nerve centers. Proof will follow use.

BASKI1ALL NOTES���
The local baseball enthusiasts are
practicing on Sundays and at odd
times during the week, but no step
has been taken as yet in the direction
of organizing the team for the season.
The Kossland enthusiasts are particularly anxious tti see Nelson ip the
Held with a fast team, realizing that
the succes*- of the game in their town
depends in a great measure on their
ability to secure games with outside
points, of which Nelson is the principal center. In event of this city failing to have a first class team it is not
likely that Rossland will go to the
expense of organizing a semi-professional nine.
WALL PAPER
A GOOD RECORD���
Mr. William Mackenzie, general
agent for the New York Life Insurance Co. with headquarters in^ this
city, received notification yesterday
by wire from Vice President Perkins
in New York, thut he is one of the
twelve agents of the company who
proilueed the largest volume of busi
ness during the month of March. As
the New Vork Life Insurance Co, employs over six th,iii'-:tnd agents, and
transacts a larger volume of business
than any other insurance company in
tlie whole world, it is very evident
that Mr. Mackenzie is an insurance
mun of marked ability. His splendid
achievement will bu rcwaideil with a
free trip to Saratoga, New York, to
the general agents convention in Sep
temher. It is worthy of note that
tbe names of the leaders are published
in a bulletin every month, and distributed all ovei the civilized world.
The company does business under and
is supervised by eighty-two governments.
