Strike Reported on Lexington
Mountain.���Windermere Notes.
Moyie, II. C. May 13.���Manager
James Cronin of the St. Eugene mine
has returned from Toronto, anil stales
that the mine and mill will lie started
up at once with a force of about 800
men. The St. Eugene company has a
large co ill act with a Belgian firm,
and it is the piesent intention lo
start the mill on this run, which
wil require seveial months to complete. When asekd regarding the reported full in Uic price of SI.. Eugene
stock, Mr. Cronin said there was absolutely nothing to it. He said that
there was no stock listed in the market nor did he know that there was
any for sale.
Mr. Cronin says that the chances
seem very favorable for the Dominion
government granting a bonus on re-
lined lend, and he thinks this will
he done very shortly, us the session
will soon close,
A new strike is reported from Lexington mountain,on the steven-a-mon,
the northwestern claim of the Lucky
Jack group. Tlie owners, Messrs.liiit-
ler, Deroslero and Owen, have during
the past eighteen months driven about
HO feet of tunnel on n lend containing a great quantity of galena and
have a very satisfactory showing at
that point, and have just succeeded in
tracing and uncovering what is eon.
fldently supposed to he an extension of
the large lend on the Eva mine, and
in this .icy have found gold ore
which will hear comparison with any
found on the Eva.
Mr. Elmer Everett has tapped another large quartz lead on his claim
the Everett, and although ho has not
yet found any samples visible in the
Rolid, washing lias given very satisfactory  results.
there nil] be a big rush into this particular district this Season.
Several of the most promising properties have been bonded,, during tlie
winter by foreign capital.
Vancouver, Ii. C., May 18,���J. Ii.
Handings, M.E.. of Seattle, is at present on Texada Island, examining the
fabulously rich strike recently made by
Mr. Plants. Mr. Handings represents
Seattle capital, and has in his possession a draft for 8140,000, which he is
authorized to pay to the owners of
this wonderful prospect, provided it
turns out to he as is represented. Mr.
Rawlings took with bim two miners
and any amount of powder and says
if it is a pocket, ho will blow the
pocket to smithereens. It is a well
known fact that extremely rich pockets of ore have been discovered all
over Texada Island; in fact men have
been living off the gold lougbly extracted from the free milling rock on
the island for years. Some time ago
Captain Scott, n man whose whole
life lias been a succession of sensational adventures, declared to the World
that he had found tho richest mine in
the universe on Texada Inland. The
speciments exhibited at that time
were almost all gold, and the sensational announcement caused great
excitement in the city, a syndicate
being formed to work the mine iu less
than six hours. Of course the mine
turned out to be a pocket, but several
thousand dollars were secured from
the ore and saved the syndicate from
loss. This experience, of course, has
prejudiced the public with the Planta
tind; in fact, Mr. Rawlings bas stated
that he does not expect to find that
the Planta claim is a mine. Mr.
Rawlings, when here, fraternized
witli the telegraph people, his claim
to their recognition being that be
once worked alongside of Edison, and
was one of the first live to operate the
telegraph instrument by sound.
THE BOAT CLUBS PLANS
COMMITTEE   WORKING    HARD TO
PLACE IT ON A POPULAR
BASIS
REGATTA   TO     HE     HELD    THE
FIRST  WEEK   IN JUNE���
THE COUR.SE.
Peterborough, April 10.���Prof. Robinson of Chicago, representing American capital returned to Peterborough
on the Slh   inst.
It is understood that there is a deal
pending for the purchase of the Silver
Thread mine on Law creek, by an
American syndicate, represented by
Thomas Slarbird of Peterborough,
B, C.
Development work on an extensive
scale is being pushed on the Iron Cap
mine on McDonald cieek, tributary
of Horse Thief creek.
Development work on an extended
scale will he resumed on the Paradise
mine on Spring creek   almost at once.
C. M. Keep, president of the Silver
Belt.Mining Co., returned from California last week and expects to commence work on a large Bealo on all
properties owned by the company.
Robert McKeeinati of Peterborough,
Ii. C., one of the pioneer prospectois
of East Kootenay, expects to bond the
Sunrise group, situated on llugaboo
creek, to an American syndicate in
the very near future. Mr. McKeeman
is the principal owner of this vciy
promising copper pioperly.
The Ilolpbine mi no on the north
fork of Toby creek, owned by Messrs.
R A. Kimpton and II. C Hammond,
will probably commence shipping
again this season. This property is
high grade silver-lead.
The Paystonc group of mines, situated on Horse Thief creek, was formerly owned by Robert McKeeman of
Peterborough, and R. O. Jennings of
Fort Steele, B. C. Robert McKeeman
disposed of a one-quarter interest to
William Santo of Windermere, H. C,
and the remaining one-quarter he
bonded to Ben Abel of Peterborough,
which lias since been taken up. It is
understood that tlie piesent owners
will develop this property during this
season. The ore is similar to the
famous War Eagle mine, Rossland.
Thc White Cat group on Boulder
creek, with an Immense showing of
high grade silver-lead ore. will be developed extensively during tlie season.
According   to   present    indications
or more will command more attention
than a few, and will probably go
through quicker and with more prospect of success. Such application
will probably require il month or six
weeks to go through.
The club intend to hold their first
season's regatta In the first week in
June, the exact date depending on tlie
stand taken by the merchants with
regard to the mid-week holiday.
The races will probably be decided
this year between Roberts' point and
the Tramway company's park. This
course will be in every way a more
desirable one than In time past and
both the boat club and the Tramway
company will do all in their power to
make the occasion a successful and
enjoyable day for all.
DEATH OF MRS.  HURRY���
Mr. Robert Hurry yesterday received
the sad intelligence of the death of
bis mother at Cbarlottetown, P. E.I.,
Sunday. Mrs. Hurry was S- years ot
age and leaves living a family of nine
of wbom Mr. Robert Hurry and Mrs.

METHODIST  CONFERENCE
FULL   ATTENDANCE  OF   RERPE-
SENTATIVES  AND   GREAT INTEREST manifested.
REPORT   OF   EDUCATIONAL COM
MITTEE-STATIONING    COMMITTEE AT WORK.
It is to he noted with much satisfaction the committee of the boat club
is making every effort to place the
organization on a broad and popular
basis this season and that up to the
present it lias met witli every encouragement in its attempts. The membership is increasing very rapidly this
year, almost tivo dozen names liaving
already been elected by the committee as active members who will compete in the regatta.
Now that thc club has amalgamated
with the North Pacific association of
amateur oarsmen, it is more imperative that only amateurs become active
members, for, be it known, that even
local competition amongst tlie members against professionals, for anv
prize whatever, makes the whole
club professional and so haired out of
the amateur association. As there is
every porspect of the regatta of the
Pacific Coast club being held here
next year, this possibility must be
avoided at all cost.
It is to he regretted that althlelics
of all kinds in Nelson up to the present time have been carried on under
the stigma of professionalism, for
there are many true and enthusiastic
athletes in the city who are barred
ont of all amateur competition���now
Unit it is beginning to assert itself���-
just because their keenness-for athletics in time past bas been greater
than their discretion. In other words,
rather than loose all chance of the
glory of victory, they competed for
money prizes, more for the sport that
the race contained than for any hope
of gain. For the benefit of these unlucky ones it may be said that on application to the Canndian Amateur
Athletic association they can be reinstated as amateurs, Several applications bave already been received by
the committee of the boat club with
this end in view, and if such application be made out at once,in due form,
nn.i forwarded to any member of the
committee,they will be only too pleased to back such application, forward
it to headquarters and do all in .their
power in favor and support of the
candidate. A clear statement, with
dates, is required, of all events competed in for money prizes, with reasons for so doing. It is to be hoped
that as many ns possible will now
avoil themselves of this opportunity
for reinstatement, for a  dozen names

parliamentary committee of the Trades
and Labor council recently on their invitation to give some   results   of   his
research into the methods   adopted by
I the Chinese coolie Immigrants to supply the cheap labor   market   In   Hritish Columbia, Mr.Cowan having made
a   study   of   the Chinese  question in
'connection with writing an article on
'the  Chinese in Canada   for   a certain
'well known encyclopedia.   Mr. Cowan
made the startling   statement  that in
his   researches   he   had   come   across
documentary   evidence   to   show that
many   Chinese- who   cainc   into   this
country raised the necessary funds  by
giving   n   chattel mortgage  on   their
wives and   children.    If the mortgage
I was   foiecloBed,  the   mortgagee   took
possession of the w'fe and children os
, his slaves for  thiee years; at  the end '
.of that time bis slaves could be released only on being  purchased from him
at   a   proper   valuation.    Oilier   very I
important   matters dealing   with tlie
Chinese   question   were gone into  by I
Mr. Cowan, who is to   appear   befoie

BIG   GROCERS'   GOMB1NE
THE  RETAIL  MERCHANTS OF
VANCOUVER PREPARING TO
FORM A TRUST.
TWENTY       PROMINENT      FIRMS
READY TO SIGN PROPOSED
AGREEMENT.
A full attendance of representatives
were present at thej opening session
yesterday. Rev. Dr. Carman, general
superintendent, in the chair.
Gieat applause greeted the announcement that the degree of D. D.
had been conferred upon the ex-President; Rev. R. Whittington, M. A., B.
Sc, by the_Wesleyan Theological college, Montreal. He is the only D. D.
in the U. C. conference, and Montreal
College has not only conferred an
honor upon Mr. Whittington, but upon itself, as the recipient is held in
high esteem on account of his scholastic attainments, and other good qualities of mind and heart. Rev. E. E.
Scott presented the report of the educational committee, and. the names of
the various examiners for the conference course of study was appended
thereto. Rev. E. S. Rone, of Metropolitan church, Victoria, asked a
question regarding the order rank
at civic functions. Rev. Dr. Carina-
stated that the question has not been
finally   settled.
The following were appointed a
committee to draft a memorial to
present to the Dominion parliament
in Ottawa so that the Methodist officiary may have their proper rank at
royal nnd other state functions: Revs.
E. S. Rowe, Dr. Whittington, E. E.
Scott, R. W. Harris, D. Spencer.
In the discussion which followed it
was stated that the time had come for
Methodists to asseit their rights. I
They desired no favors but as a
church they were entitled to their true
standing in this great Dominion
where there was not state church.
And address will be presented the
Duke of Cornwall and York on behalf
of the Methodists of B. C., on his
arrival on the coast. The following
will prepare the address: The president of the conferene and Dr. Whittington, Jos. Hall, R. W. Ilurvis, II.
L. DeBeck, D. Spencer.
In the afternoon a deputation from
the Socialistic Educational club was
received by conference. The following gentlemen compoeed the deputation: Mr. Coxhead, Mr. Larkcy and
Mr. Ebbs. Each speaker stated that
theyVwere in full accord with the
conference in regard to the government control of the liquor traffic.
Government control, whilst it might
not entirely eradicato all the evils of
the traffic, would be a step in tbe
right direction, and If one could not
secure the "whole loaf" we should
accept half a loaf. The rcrort of Columbia college, Victoria, was presented by Principal, Sipprcll. They
have finished the most successful year
in the history of tbe college. During
the year 70 students have been enrolled and have 111 candidates who have
been taking university examinations
and five have been writing for piovln-
eial teachers' certificates. The college
has been benefitted to the extent of
five thousand dollars from the 30th
Century thanksgiving fund.
Principal Sipprcll has succeeded in
raising the college in the estimation
of the B. C. people, and it is rapidly
gaining favor. He is assisted in the
teaching by four specialists in depart-
Vancouver. May 13.���A meeting of
retail grocers called to consider the
advisability and practicability of
forming a combine took place recently
and after the matter was laid oefore
them by the promoters of the scheme
and discussed anil criticized at great
length, a vote was taken, which resulted iu showing a substantial majority of those present in favor of the,
combine.
Very briefly, the plan is to reduce
stores now doing business to about
one-third of the present number ; as
an example, the total expenses of
thirty principal stores, according to
the business now being done, have
heen estimated after careful consideration to be $17,071, against this is the
estimaled expenses of eleven stores,
serving the same number of customers,
of 88,495, thus showing a saving of
$S,700 a month to thirty merchants
engaged in the grocery business.
It is proposed to place these eleven
stores, which of course will have
nearly three times the capacity per
store of the other thirty stores, in
suitable localities according to the
density of tlie population.
They will be up to date stores, and
a butcher shop connected with each
establishment and to have one executive head over the entire business.
The promoters of^ the scheme lay
great stress on the assert ion that consumers will benefit by the combine.
The great saving in expense, and including the ability of the combine
to purchase their goods cheaper in
large quantities, is sufficient assurance that this will be the case, according to their reasoning. They
assert that the combine is an assured
fact; that only one of the larger films
of the city has declined to enter tlie
combine. And it only remains for
these firms to put their names to a
legal agreeinnt. now being drawn up
for their signature, before preliminary arrangements are made towards
amalgamation. The serlvces of an organizer will be secured, and no stone
left unturned to bring the combine to
u successful issue in six   months time.
There are some twenty firms in tlie
city ready to sign the legal agreement, which represents most of the
capital involved in the grocery business here, and these twenty firms believe tliat the moment their signatures are affixed to tile agreement
there will be nothing elso for the other grocers to do but to fall in line, as
thc combine would so reduce prices to
the consumer,besides increasing their
own profits, that it would be the
greatest folly for tboes outside the
combine to remain outside. There are
of course those who are strongly opposed to the combine, asserting that
it is a dieain, impracticable and impossible of realization, and therefore
unworthy of serious consideration.
The promoters answer "time will
show."
HIGH WATER IN THE LAKE
NOW RISING   AT-   THE   RATE   OF
THREE INCHES   EVERY
24 HOURS.
REPETITION   OF THE   FLOOD   OI<
181)4 PREDICTED BY OLD-
TIMERS.
At 5 o'clock yesterday the lake bad
risen within two inches of the top of
the far end of the city wharf. It is
rising at the rale of three inches
every 24 hours, and is now seven feet
four inches above its  normal   height.
Those who have made a study of thu
rise and origin of Hoods, arc predicting a repetition of the condition of
tltlngs in 1804. These fears are based
on the calculation of a well known
citizen who has kept notes of the conditions prevailing dining tlie last
eight or nine yenrs and claims that
the water in the Cottonwood creek
are highest when the snow is all off'
the tramway of the Silver King mine
on tl.e brow of Toad Mountain, and
as the lake is rising there are good
reasons for fearing a deluge, owing
to the fact that there is a very large
amount yet to bo found in that vicinity, and with a few days of rising
temperature such as is naturally expected during the remainder of this
month, a flood is almost inevitable.
On the other hand, however, a gentleman coming in from Crow's Nest
district reports that the Kootenay
and Goat rivers aie not rising, but
owing to the cold snap are lower .ban
they were a week ago. and barring
specially hot weather and warm inins
there is practically no danger of a
repetition of the Hood of 18114.

A day or two ago.The Miner reported au accident to a freight train at
Sparwood, of which further particulars, though still meagre, are to hand.
The missing fireman's name is

recovered. The conductor, Harry
o'llagan, and the brakesman, whose
name has not yet been ascertained,
jumped the train as she was falling

Several of the offenders have taken the
hint  and   moved   to fresh  fields  anq
pastilles, in some   instances   like   thd
snail, taking their  bouses witli theuij
hut in other eases leaving   their   nasi

and the   tender   mercies   of  the   city

delusion thai the city  authorities   are|
only   fooling.    That   delusion,   however, is destined   to a fatal  cxplosion|
in   the very near future, foi the council have decided lo prosecute  all   whol
have failed to comply witli the   regu- I
lations which came into  force  on the |
liist day of May, 'The C. P. R. are assisting in this matter   and  have post-

property or having  shacks   on   their
property   without   chimneys    should
hold   themselves   in    readiness to appear before the magistrate   any   time
in the near futuie.
Another matter of public interest
especially to the lire laddies, discussed at lasi night's council meeting was
the question of reorganizing the fire
brigade. In the past the volunteer
lire brigade have been paid a specific
amount every time tlie fi brigade
wus called ont. The new tiro chief is
inaugurating a new system, which
has met with Hie approval of the fire,
water and light cominiltei', and also
approved by the council, that they
be paid at the rale of (Iii per month
each, Including all calls and alarms,
and a line of $3 be imposed for non-
attendance. At first some objection
was raised to tbis plan, as it was
thought that it might cause a "kick"
among the boys, but as tlie chief of
I lie lire brigade anticipates no difficulty in procuring all the men he
needs on these terms the plan was
adoptt'd.
The Rocky Mountain Rangers band
also came under discussion and some
criticism, line of the aldermen anticipating the need of a hand dining tho
lirst of July celebration, brought up
Ihe mailer cf au appropriation of $>>'>
a month, which had heen asked for or
Suggested, The matter was debated
fiom every standpoint, some lining
in favor of an appropriation and
others against it. The mayor stated
that in ,'iu attempt made to buy the
instruments they lirst had asked Sfiil
then raised it to $7.1, and now "bulled" the musical market to M2o. It
was finally decided that the council
had no power to appropriate money
fair sue'' purposes, and the mailer
was Ifet over until tin' mutter uf appropriations Clime up for the July celebration, with tin understanding that
if the band was then in existence any
appropriation to the band would be
made then, Last year the band received SAO per month for four mouths, but
thu .war befoie they had both to pay
the fiddler anil choose thc tune theui-
Belves.
The lire, water and light committee
also n mmended, which was approved by the couno'l, that the Kootenay
Lake Telephone company be required
to move their wires fiom thc electric
light poles, giving them six months
in which to do so,except on Josephine
street, which have lo be moved in
four months, witli permission to erect

direction of tlie city engineer.
Authority was given to have direct

CHARACTERISTIC.
There is nothing surprisiner in the
rcpirt from Victoria that Mr. Martin.
Mr. Brown, and Mr. Mclnnes are to
be taken into the Cabinet. Places are
to be provided for them by the resignation of Mr. Turner, and the enforced retirement of Mr. Wells and Mr.
Prentice, We do not think the report
is well founded,but neither it nor any
otliei can he too extravagant or improbable, if it bus to do with politics
as practised at Victoria. There it is
possible for anything to occur. It
was hoped that with the advent of
Mr. Dunsmuir there would bo a sane,
solid, sensible business Administration. Mr. iiunsiiiiiii-'s wealth was
supposed to put him quite beyond
those little temptations which too often beset, with evil consequences, less
favored politicians. It was thought
he possessed abilities sufficient for
the position of Government leader,
and that between bis honesty ar.d
his obstinacy be would draw a
straight line and make his colleagues
and his supporter" keep to it as well
as himself. He was but a short time
in office when be began taking conn-
eel with the man who, under our political system, should be the chief
enemy of tbe (iovernment. Instead
of advising with bis friends and followers, Vlr. Dunsmuir has taken his
inspiration from the leader of the Opposition. For two or three years
previously polities in British Columbia had been shockingly demoralised;
instead of mending matters, as was
hoped. Mr. Dunsmuir hus made them
worse. When the conduct of public
affairs is made subject to intrigues
between the leaders of the opposite
parties, it can be said that the country has reached high-water mark in
corruption aud general political profligacy.
But there is no truth^in the report
referred to notwithstanding���that is,
it is not all true. Mr. Martin may
be taken in, Mr. Brown may be taken
in, or Mr. Mclnnes muy be taken in;
but not all three. That would be
worse than Mr. Martin's Government,
which was composed of men who had
never been in public life and of whom
the people had never heard. Such
an extraordinary variety of Cabinet-
making startled the Province, but it
was innocence itself in comparison
witb a (iovernment formed out of the
Opposition. Mr. Dunsmuir may have
little sagacity as a politician, but he
need not go farther than his coachman to ascertain that Governments
are not made in this way. An Opposition Government is a peculiarity so
far unknown to the political systems
of tlie Hritish people. Last aluly the
electors of ibis Province declared witli
a great deal of decision that they
bad no confidence in the party represented by Mr. Martin, Mr. Brown,
and Mr. Mclnnes, and to put these
three men into the Cabinet now would
be an outiage which the people at
least would not stand, whatever the
House might do. Tbe pretext of a
coalition would not pass in this
case, as the three Opposition members
would dominate the Cabinet and tho
otlieis would be meie dummies. It
would uo longer be a Government representing thoHc principles for whicli
tlie country declared lesB than a year
ago, but u Government of men whose
principles und practices were emphatically condemned. A Government that
can assimilate one of them might
boast of considerable stiength of
stomach, but the entire three would
be fatal.

knows. Anil so, too. in tlie United
States. Eaoh system of railways In
that country competes witli other
systems, with the result of keeping
rates within a reasonable figure. One
has to be either ignorant or dishonest
to claim that rival railways do not
compete. And this competition is far
more effective than any Government
control that has yet been exercised iu
the experience of Canadian    railways.
'It is true," says The Toronto
Globe, "that to some minds the public ownership of all lines is the only
thing that commends itself as a remedy tor railroad ilis. We fear that
public opinion is not prepared for so
radical a cure. It is at least a measure that should receive a great deal of
critical examination, anil that might
fittingly be preceded by experiments
in public ownership of less magnificent proportions.'' Public opinion
is far from being prepared for so radical a cure, and when it comes it will
be Federal ownership, not Provincial.
The wise and learned politicians
who have just shaken the dust of Victoria off their feet have been babbling
for a month past nfciut Provincial
ownership,in darkest ignorance of the
foct that in Canada Biich a thing is
wholly impracticable.

Among the later Bills to pass the
House was one to encourage the establishment of pulp industries in the
Piovinee. Of course it bad to be provided that no Chinese or Japanese labor should be employed in connection
with them. That is tlie little fad that
is running its course just now. It was
Mr. Martin who procured the Insertion of this provision, declaring when
moving his amendment that it would
be better to have no such industries
at all if they were to be cariied on
with the aid of Mongolian labor.
This is the very intoxication of prejudice. As long as this spirit endures, industrial development in British Columbia will be of  slow growth.

In the course of tha debate on the
Loan Hill Mr. Dunsmuir said that
"competitive railways" do not give
competition, and added that lower
rates were only to be obtained
through (Irvernment control. No one
who has the least knowledge of conditions in Eastern Canada tvi 11 pretend for a moment that the Grand
Trunk and the Canadian Pacific are
not competitive roads and do not compete. The competition Is real and
substantial,   as  every   business  man
The supplementary estimates contained an item of $2,0(111 for improvements to the court house in Vancouver. Mr. Joseph Martin, a member
for Vancouver, opposed the vote.
That was nn instance of rare good
courage, whether the improvements
were or were not necesssary. Mr.
Martin said that members were too
much disposed to grab for their constituencies; in this case, the vote was
not required, as thc present buitiling
was adequate to the needs of tlie profession, and he for one would not join
in raiding tbe Treasury ineicly to
please his constituents. All of which
is very much to his credit.
The   Kossland   Miner   characterises
the three men wlij> are   mentioned   us
possible Ministers in this fashion:
"Martin, an unscrupulous -trickster \
Mclnnes, a howling demagogue, and
Itrown, a whimsical pessimist. Ve
gods, what a combination f.irm of
l.oveminent for thc Province of I'rit-
ish Columbiu '."

Wild Horses From thc Upper Country
For South Africa.
Van en il ver, It. (' , Muy 13,���H.
15. .luyiii', of I.iilooi't, stated in
nn interview today Unit any one who
is familiar with the Upper Country,
namely, the unsettled lands of Yale
and I.iilooi't, kno,vs that there aie
thousands of wild horses roaming in
the hills, and that they make raidH of
the farmers' ranches, doing much
damage   to  their    ciops.   Iii    thete
bands there aie many well bred
horses, ranging in weight from 1,000
to l,2()ti pounds and upwards, which
are admirably adapted for military
purposes.
A statute exists, providing that trie
farmers muy shoot these horses as a
nuisance.   Air. Jayno suggests that it
would lie much better to eoirnl the
whole Lit, 1(111 the useless ones Ri.d
sell the rest fur service ill South Africa, lie suggests that the provincial
government arrange for an organized
pursuit of the nuiiicrousJhenW nnd
have them eoirailed In proper enclosures to be erected for the purpose.
Mr. Jayn. said that all the range-
holders in I.illiinel ami Yale promised
to heartily co operate witli tire provincial government while tlie Dominion government have promised to establish a remount station in British
Columbia. It is thought that if an
organized pursuit he commenced within sixty days, before the year is up
many of lie now untamed steeds roaming ovei the waste lands of Hritish
Columbia will be captured, subdued
and trained, and charging in company
over the South African veldt.
GOOD  AUVICI'l,

THE    INTERESTING  CAREER   OF   DR.
JULIA HOLMES SMITH.

the House.
Ilr. Julia Holmes Smith, elected in
October, 1889, to the deanshlp of Hie
National Medical college of Chicago, has
the unique distinction of being Hie lirst
woman ever elected to such a position.
Of her career Dr. Smith says:
"When 1 was 15, I wns sent to New
Vork and after two years graduated at
the Bplngler institute. A brief social sen-
son in New Orleans was followed by it ti
early marriage to Waldo Abbott, One
sun wns born, Willie J. Abbott, noted ns
well in journalism and literature as in
Democratic politics.
"After a  very  brief married  life the
misfortunes that came to all southern
people at tho close of the war made it
necessary for me to enter upon nil active
life, nnd the result was the opening "f
tlie lirst kindergarten ever established in
DB. JULIA HOLMES SMITH.
.Vow Haven, Conn. Several years ot
teaching and writing followed, and in
1ST. a second marriage to Sabiii Smith
of New Loudon. Conn. Then a removal
to Boston, where 1 pursued the study of
medicine in the Boston University Seiiool
nf Medicine for three years.
"Business calling Mr. Smith to Chicago. 1 assisted in tlie establishing of the
Chicago Medicul college and took a diploma there, entering upon active practice in 1877.
"I lectured nt the Chicago Homeopathic
college for some time, lint severed my
connection when the college nimnuiieed
itself 'for the medical education of men
only.' I wns one of the earliest members
of the Fortnightly of Chicago, three
times president of tlie Chicago Woman's
club, founder of the Philosophical society
of Chicago. In IS."), at tlie Cotton exposition at New Orleans, tlie directors appointed me superintendent of the woman's department of the northwest. The
interests of 11 states were in my hands
and a large amount of money nt my disposal. The success of this enterprise, so
far ns the northwest is concerned, is a
matter of history. As a native of New
Orleans I was able to assist in making
the path smooth for .Irs. Julia Ward
Howe, who had been chosen president of
the woman's department of the Cotton
exposition. In 18! 13 1 was made vice
president of the International congress of
homeopathic physicians and surgeons."
Clrla, Men Want to Mnrry.
Men who are looking for wives nre
growing more cautious daily. The up to
date maiden of society must bo careful if
Bhe would wear orange blossoms.
In the opening of love's campaign appearances count doubly. Men love beauty, but there is one rival to ttiis attribute
in their eyes���to wit. exquisite neatness.
Given the features of Venus, a girl
whose hands denote little care, teeth
given over to tartar or a breath that is
not to be tolerated save at a considerable
distance will not speedily wenr a betrothal ring.
Hemember, girls, men nre born hunters.
They vnlue the girl who is uot to be had
for the lirst asking. Not she who cheapens herself.
Odious mannerisms are fatal to a girl.
Giggling simply maddens some men. One
girl missed becoming the wife of n nnbob
because she "sniffed." "Making eyes,"
ns it is called, is seldom a binding fascination to the wife seeker.
Fast talk may attract men to some
girls���nny, it does���but men who hear a
girl tell or laugh nt n risijue story mentally draw a line through her name ns a
possible wife.
Vanity is inherent in both sexes. Men
usually have a goodly share. The girl
who can find out the vulnerable spot of
the eligible and skillfully Hatter thereupon has covered thc first ground toward
the goal.
The tailor made maiden is beloved of
all well bred men. The more quietly but
stylishly the girl is gowned the greater
admiration she will receive from Mr.
Man. Moreover, she must be well shod
and never frayed as to petticoats.
Thc voice is a powerful aid to girls
who would win to themselves much admiration. Loud voiced women are never
so enthralling as those having a low timbered tone. Have a sympathetic voice
and laugh. They can be acquired.
Wisdom teaches us thut the sons of
Adam love women with bountiful forms.
There is a better reason than vanity,
however, why girls who may become
wives should endeavor to become physically perfect.
Little Lndy Disdain, have a care If
you "care for" Prince Forlunatus. He
knows his full value, you may be sure, so
don't put him off with vague promises���
too often.
Well bred girls never bonst to their
fiance of former proposals. Man pays a
girl a high honor in asking her to become
his wife. Other manly men remember
this respectfully.
Show your fiance he holds your heart,
but if you would hold his don't take the
general public into your confidence.���
Philadelphia Record.
Moccasins the Ideal Footwear,
The moccasin is the most rational and
comfortable of all footwear. In moccasins the feet have full play; they can
bend and grasp: there Is nothing to chafe
them or impede circulation. In moccasins one can move like on acrobat, crossing slender and slippery logs, climbing
trees or passing with ease and security
along dizzy trails on the mountain side,
where a slip might mean sure destruction.
Tbe feet do not stick fast in the mud.
In tbe north, when the mercury is far
below zero and no civilized  boot will
protect the feet from freezing, the savage suffers no Inconvenience. His moccasins, stuffed with dried grass, let the
blood course freely. The perspiration may
freeze on the hay in a solid lump of ice,
but the feet remain warm and dry. The
buckskin moccasin, Indian tanned, with
deer's brains and wood smoke, always
dries soft after a wetting. In autumn,
when all the leaves and Iwigs are dry as
tinder, a iiiun wearing shoos makes a
noise in the forest like a troop of cavalry.
Hut iu moccasins he can move swiftly
through the woods with Ihe stealth of a
panther. The feet are not bruised, for
after enjoying for it time tin* freedom of
natural covering, these hitherto blundering members become like hands, uud feel
their way through Ihe dark like those of
a eat, avoiding obstacles us though gifted wilh a special sense. Best of all, the
moccasin is light. Inexperienced sportsmen nnd soldiers affect high topped laced
boots wilh heavy soles and hobnails, imagining Unit these are most serviceable
for rough weather. Hut these boots weigh
between four and live pounds, while a
pair of thick moose hide moccasins weigh
only 11 ounces, lu inarching ten miles n
man wearing clumsy boots lifts _U tons
more shoe leather than if he wore mocca-
sins.���Harper's Magaslne.
-.vcnliijr Firesides In  Alaska.
An Alaskan hut is not the worst place
in the world���far from it. Its interior
consists of a square floor of earth flanked
on all sides by two wide ledges rising one
above the other like a terrace. On tlie
lower ono rest the cooking, weaving and
fishing utensils, the knives and needles,
pots and puns. On the upper ledge, with
much display of wonderfully woven blankets, nre tin: beds. In thc center of tlie
mom glows tlie tire, tlie smoke groping
its way out of a hole in the roof.
After Hie day's work is done and the
stomachs of both people and dogs arc full
the family gathers around the tire. Facing tlie door sits the father, next to him
the mother, on one hand the sons aud on
the other the daughters, even to the
third mid fourth generation, it may be.
Beyond these are the servants or slaves.
Eneh has his place and takes it as a matter of course. Without, in tho darkness,
the dogs clutter about the door and howl.
When the family sings in strange, broken, yet rhythmical measures, the dogs
howl louder than before and the women
sway their squat bodies back and forth
unceasingly, keeping their hands occupied
meanwhile at their task of weaving or
braiding. Tlie men carve their spoons or
cut curious figures from tlie black slate.
The suitor for the hand of one of the
daughters enters slyly and takes a seat
witii the sous. No protest is made. The
fattier uud mother go on with their little
tasks, the young girls giggle after Hie
fashion of girls the world over. And
tin1 suitor, thus uni'epulsed, contents himself, thinking his case won.
The oldest among them chants some
old folk song, and the father rises. It is
the signal for good nights, The ashes are
spread over the lire, and by the light of a
few fishes' tails dried for tlie lighting the
family goes to bed, forgetful nf crashing
bergs, of the mysterious aurora, of the
mountains where the snow lies forever
and alway. So is home made anywhere,
where tbe spirit of home exists.���Self

BnalneNK CirlN In thc Ilonse.
I do not mean n girl who has gone into
some Ivmlr or profession, for Hie most
domestic "home bird" of my girl readers
may be one. Indeed, if she helps to carry
out her.dnily duties successfully she must
do her utmost to become a "business
girl" in my sense of the word. And when,
in course of time, she passes to a home of
her own, she will be nt no loss in taking
up her position as housekeeper and mistress. She will win the respect of those
in her employ by showing them that she
understands how she should tie served
and that while comfort is absolutely required no extravagance will be allowed.
She will cause her husband's love for
her to increase by showing him how truly
his interest is hers by bringing into play
her knowledge of "how to spend and how
to save." To make homo uncomfortable
by mean, unnecessary savings is no real
economy, but to plan witli loving thought
how to make every dollar yield ils true
value is housekeeping in its best sense,
for such n "business girl" will make a
small income go further nnd give more
real happiness and comfort than would
one of double and treble the amount in
experienced hands. But to make my girl
render n complete business one of the
type which I write she must nlso learn
how to conduct her charities. Giving indiscriminately, without inquiry or
thought, is often more productive of evil
than good, and she must be as wise over
the spending nf (lie portion allotted "to
help others" and give as thorough consideration to It as she does to what she
puis apart for her personal concerns.���
Cleveland Plain Denier.
Tall  Vermis Short.
Some one wiio luid nothing else to do
has been spying about to see which have
the preference witli the other sex, tall or
short women, and this is what she has
concluded from her observations: "It is
uu undeniable fact that the majority of
men prefer short women to tall ones.
Perhaps this is because they like to he
looked up to���nt nil evenls by the fair
sex���and it is only natural for them to
prefer the girl who, iii her Mule carcss-
ings and fascinating, lorcrllke ways, hns,
on account of her shortness, to look up at
him for the purpose of peering into his
lovelit eyes. Tall women lire usually
dignified and appear to scorn kittenish
ways, nnd although they manage to draw
admiration it is rather, of tlie nwn inspiring kind. No doubt, owing to the
siniillness of stature and pretty, playful
ways, men give to little women more
petting than thc tall, dignified woman
demands.
"The lover's oft repented expression,
'You little darling,' could hardly he applied to the very tall girl without tickling
Hie risibilities of those who overheard it.
This is certainly very hard and looks like
a punishment for being tall, hut who can
help her stature? It is n fact, too, that
men are rather shy about approaching
tall women because of Hie restraint
which they feel, but cannot explain. They
are under the impression���why it is hard
to tell���that tall women are built to be
commanders, nnd they nre in their natural element when left alone iu their reserved dignity and musings iu their lonely wanderings."
KIplInK on American.!.
The Englishman's liouse is said to he
the Englishman's castle: but. as Mr.
Kipling hns been the first or one of the
first to point out, the American castle is
the American's olliee. The American of
wealth, says Mr. Kipling, is owned by his
family. It would be strange were he disowned, but Air. Kipling uses the word
'owned" in a very particular sense���the
sense of that rather slangy Capelcourt
word, "run." I'apa is "exploited for
bullio" by his woman folk and especially
by his daughter. So it seems that modern fiction is uot so far wrong in its portraiture after nil. The splendidly unfettered tyranny of Hie daughter, however,
is often meteoric in its brilliancy, There
is often ahead a Stock Exchange crisis,
and should this come the girl who hits
"irreverently" taken tbe domestic lead
has to discard with her $1(1 bonnet and
her $18 shoes the prescriptive right to the
society of the man who arrives and lake
to stenography or typewriting. Iu the
last state more than in Ihe lirst is it Hint
Mamie or Ilattie or Sadie shows herself
worthy of Mr. Kipling's eulogy. Only���
and this is not to he forgotten���the true
American girl whoso life no crisis clouds
does not drop her less happy sister from
ihe list of her friends. "No," said it scarlet lipped vision in while lace, "Ihat"���
meaning the typewriting, ele.���"might
linn,en to me any day."���English Exchange.
DreMM Allowances of lloyalty.
People sometime! wonder what sum is
put aside for dress by Hie daughters of
royal houses. Au enterprising fashion
writer tells us that before her marriage
the Duchess of Fife hud a very small
dress allowance���about $1,500 a year.
Besides yachting and everyday dresses
nnd nil the usual costumes required by s
girl of the upper classes, royal princesses
have also to wear the costly and elaborate dresses whicli their rank demands
at ihe weddings of their near relations,
They nre, however, fortunate in having
stores of beautiful laces, priceless furs
and marvelous jewels, all of which can
he used again ami again.
On Hie whole, it may be asserted that
a frugal princess may spend as little as
$5,1101) a year on her dress, while her
more wealthy and extravagant sisler
may find her dress bills amount to HI
times Hint sum. Age bus nothing to do
with the matter, for the queen of Italy
spends far more than does her beautiful
young daughter-in-law, tlie crown princess ot Naples. The empress of Russia,
Who, more than any oilier European princess, is able to indulge her wildest fancies, dresses with the greatest simplicity,
In the daytime she mostly wears tailor
made coats and skirls and in Hie evening
favors the purest white materials.���New

Be Gentle.
Be gentle In your manners. The heavy
footfall is not necessary, and by it you
shock the nervous and waken the baby.
The loud, shrill tone is not so easily understood as the nicely modulated. Perhaps you ure "always knocking over a
vase or a book, tipping over a glass of
water" or such like mishaps, l'ou may
not think so, but such things show a
lack of consideration for others, for with
a little care nnd forethought such disasters might almost always be avoided.
Learn to walk quietly. Keep your eyes
open that you may uot trip over rugs
and cushions or chairs and small tables.
Don't make your friends dread to have
you come in, as do Hie friends of one
young lady of this town, "for she always
breaks something before she leaves,"
they say. "Aud she is so good nutured
about it, too," remarks one, "aud peui-
tent, but says she always creates a
breeze and she really cannot help it."

Women mill thc Sense of Ilnuior.
At lust we nre beginning to find a
really good reason for women lacking a
sense of humor. They are too good for
it. Mary Wilkins givey the reason indirectly in a short story. "Susan," which
lias recently appeared. Susan was a
good and noble woman, and one of her
peculiarities, when one ciinie lo analyze
her, was that she never laughed, though
she had a wonderful smile. She was ono
of those rarely sympathetic, clear sighted, well balanced people who keep themselves and to a great extent the world
around them straight. She never laughed, because, as Miss Wilkins says, "people, in order to laugh at anything, in Hie
face of the misery upon tbis earth, have
to have a streak of bitterness and rebellion iu them." That's it. There is more
or less cruelty iu so called humor, and
women are too tender hearted and sympathetic for it.���New l'ork Times.
Bxtrnordlnnry   Marrlnjre   Von_.
An English rural clergyman says that
in his parish it was quite Hie fashion fur
Ihe man, when giving the ring iu Hie
marriage ceremony, to say to the woman,
"With my body I thee wasli up, and with
all my hurdle goods 1 thee aud thou." lie
said the women were better up in this
part of the service than the men. One
day, however, a bride startled him by
promising, in what she supposed to bo
the language of the prayer book, to take
her husband "to 'uve and 'old from Ibis
day forni't for betterer horse, for richer
power, in siggerness health, to love cherries and to bay." What meaning this
extraordinary vow conveyed to the woman's own mind, the Incumbent said,
baffled him to conjecture.���Short Stories'

I'litehliiB Small Gloves.
When a glove is too small and splits,
it is worse thun useless to sew up the
rent. It must be patched. Tlie patch
must bo of kid of the same color. Turn
tlie part inside out, having trimmed Ihe
hole round so that the edges are even,
and cut the patch of kid to the right size,
Then, witli fine needle nnd cotton, sew
in the patch, taking care only to take
up the inside of the kid and to keep the
seam flat. If this be done neatly, the
glove will be nearly as good as new.
Housekeepers should take good care of
their hands. Protecting the hands from
the weather is the best way to prevent
chapping. Dry the hnnds well after washing them. Use this cream nt night: Cold
cream, one ounce; extract witch hazel,
one quarter ounce; It. benzoin, 15 drops;
mix thoroughly.
Medical authorities sny that the banana is a perfect food. Fried, it makes a

in the batter and fry iu hot butter or

ORIENTAL COMMISSION.
Evidence That Canada (lets Head Tax
and II. S. Oets Chinese.
Vancouver, May 13.���Sensational
evidence which has caused a great
deal of comment was given today before the Oriental commission by the
secretary of the British Columbia Chinese board of trade. Yip On, who is a
Christian, made the following statement under oath: "If Canada restricted Chinese immigration altogether for five years there would be few if
any Chinese in Canada. This is because seventy-five per cent.of the Chinese who migrate to Canada get into
the United States, and tho majority of
the twenty-five per cent, that remain
go there too later on."
Yip On further stated that he was
in a position to know that an enormous number of Chinese smuggle
themselves into the states from British Columbia. When Commissioner
Clute confined him to facts and figures, he swore that he knew personally of 200 who started from Vancouver and got safely Into the United
States in the months of March ana
April. Speaking generally, Canada
got the head tax of 8100 and the United States got the Chinamen.
