MAFEKING
persistent Rumors In London
Of tho Relief of That
city.
Reports of Olivler's Victory
Over Gatacre are Not
Believed.
IIIY ASSOCIATED IMtMSS.)
Umilmi, March 88.���(4 a. m.)-Again
Here is a persistent rumor heie that
Mafeking bus been relieved. It is even
assorted Unit the War Offlne bus received B dispatch positively aiiiimiucing
the relief, hot that publication of it
is held back because the form of the
message admits the possibility of a
mistake. The War Offloe, however,
Asolarea that there is no cnniirination
pf the minor and that no further news
on the Bnbjeot is nt band.
Nu attention is paid iu any quarter
to the wild Hucr minors, of Command-
nut Olivier's victory over General Qat-
acre, which urn only designed to relieve tin1 '-1rcii]iing spirits nf the laugh-
em. It seems certain that Mnfolcinu's
oulv chances lie in relief by the columns eopposed to be advancing from
the sonth or in the possibility tint
Colonel Baden-Powell was strung
enough to attempt a sortie with a view
of oapturing the Boer nuns at a time
when Comiiiuudunt Symons withdrew
his meu to oppose Colonel l'liinicr's
advance. All the reports regarding tlm
iCitish operations in the Fine .State
continue to bo sntisfucti ry. Noihing
tins developed regarding "General Boiler's intentions, bnt it seems hard to
believe that be is again embarking
General Warren's divisions. It is
reported from Loreuao Merqhes thnt
Pretoria is prepared to stand n suig) of
two years, and the Boer women, Iran-
tie at the reverses to thu Boer arms,
are entreating to he allowed to shoot
the Blltish unicorn imp, in,uml at Pretoria. It is also announced from the
T.ansvaal capital thnt Ihe Italian
Government has declined to  interfere.
Wnrrentnn, Mnrch 22.���The liners
have vacated Klip Dam and Windsor-
tun. Their wives nud families have
tied with them. They sank Ihe pouts
or ferry limits at Uiverton and Wind-
snrton. The Valley can only be crossed
by swimming, The country this side
of the river is well patrolled by the
lliitish.
gtontly astonish the Boers. A diB-
patoh to the Morning Post, from
Hloonifonteiu, dated Wednesday, says:
"A deserter reports that the enemy after repeated dissentions has withdnwn
from     Brand fort    northward,'I   Ho
thinks it unlikely thnt tbe Boers will
iiiaki) u stand anywhere south of the
Vnal,    I cannot personally share  suoh
optimisms."
London, March 22.���The report from
Krouatadt, Orange Free Stute, via Pretoria, that tbe Hours uuder command
Ot General Olivier, hod defeated the
British troops under command of Gen-
ernl Qatacre, in the vioiiuty of Bethu-
lie, is not believed here. A dispatch
to Too Daily News from Springfon-
toin, tinted Tuesday, March 30, says
that General Gatacre was "All Well"
and adds that he and General Brabant
had not lest a dozen men in a fortnight. The InBt advices also placed
General Gatacre about thirty miles
north of liethnlie, where the Boer re-
poit says the defeat wiib indicted.
Ebis, combined with the fnot tbnt no
mention of the affair was made by
Lord Roberts in.his dispatch of March
21, confirms the belief that tbo Kroon-
startt report is erroneous. The reports
of skirmishing near LobatBi while apparently uot indicting nny serious Iosb
to Colonel Pluincr's column caused
grave anxiety in rcgurd to his ability
to reaoh Mafeking. Further uowb
from that quarter is anxiously awaited, for in tho six days that have
elapsed since the Inst message was sent
off, serious omigemcuts have occurred,
though not of Colonel Plnmer's seek-
iug. The Boors seem determined not
lo give up their prey at Mafekiug,
without a fieice struggle. In reply to
the major of Cape Town's request to
make "Mafekiug Relief Day" a public
holiday, Premier Schriener wrote:
"May tho holiday come soon nud may
a spirit of general good will and
kindly ceusure prevail at one later."
The Times iu lis second edition,
publishes a dispatch from Lorenzo
Marqnez, which quotea President
,-ii'vn ns saying .at Krooustadt thnt
the Boers could coutiuuo the struggle
tor six months longer.
While the Boers and British in the
Oiaugo Free State are taking advantage of tho period of inactivity to en-
liiely rest, those on the bordeis of
Natal are beginning to show activity.
A special dispTtoh from Dnrbun says
the town ot Pomeroy, thirty miles
eistof Ladysmith, has been burned
by the Boers. A British detachment
arriving at Pomeroy as the Boers
vacaten the place, shelled theburghetB,
bnt they succeeded iu taking up a
sr.ng positiou in the hills with a
lorce estimated to number n.udO.

been brought against General Methnen
by Colonel Gongh, or any other officer.
Colonel (lough, ho added, has been informed that an inquiry would bo held
in his case. Colonel Gough is alleged
to have been ordered homo by General
Methnen after deoliuiug to obey a command issued by the lutter, aud the colonel demanded a trial by court martial.
It has been learned that no peace

Ottawa, March 22.���The correspondence between Lieut. -Col.  Hughes and
General   Hutton and Dr.    Borden  wns
presented to Parliament tonight by tbo
Minister of Militin.    Tbis correspondence  opens   with a   letter   from   Col.
Hughes   to   the   Minister   of Militia,
offering lo  enroll   and lead in  active
service abroad, a regiment   or   brigade
of Canadians either under the "(lag of
Canada or what   he   deemed better the
flag of the Empire. "    On July 2fi last,
Dr. Botdeu replied   thnt  he   sent   the
offer of Col. Hughes to the War  Office
through tha regular channel.    On Jnly
81, General Hutton wrote the Minister
thnt, while Hughes'   application spoke
well for his military spirit, tbere were
officers of greater experience than Col.
Builhes,   who   had   mnde   application
without the approval of his commanding officer   and   tbe   General   untitled
Col. Hughes of this   irregularity,   aud
the breach of military   procedure.    Un
August 10, Col. Montizambert, D.   0.
C. of Districts 8 nnd 4,   sent  Hughes'
application to tbo   Chief   Staff   ofiicer
iu   tbe   regular   way   nnd   marked   it
"foi warded and   strongly   recommended."    Gen. Hutton had Cnl.   Hughes
written to,calling attention to the mil-
itaty regulations, whereupon tho latter
replied that,  he had   not   violuted   the
Queen's regulations,    witb  which   he
was  thoroughly  conversant.    He  had
yet to   learn of   anything   which   deprived n citizen   soldier from   address.
ing tho Minister of Militin on that  01
any other   subject.    Further be   made
a direct offer to the Imperial   authorities as woil, so that delays   might   be
avoided.    He was competent   to   command bis corps   and wanted to   know
the paragraphs of tbe   Queen's regulations thut   ho   had   violated.    Besides
he considered   the   letter   of   the staff
ofiicer uncalled for.   The sequel of Cot.
Hughes' offer to the Imperial   authorities was shown   in   a  letter from  the
Governor-General's   secretnry to General Hutton, stating   that   Lord Minto
had reoeived from tho Hon. Joa.Ch.'ini-
berlain a  dispatch. Informing him of
that offer, and asking General  Hutton
to inform   Hughes   tbnt  Chamberlain
had requested tbnt nn expression of his
high appreciation of tbe loyal  and patriotic spirit   shown   by   Hughes, and
those who   have   volunteered to   servo
with him, bo conveyed to  that officer.
This   letter   was   accompanied   by   a
note   from His Excellency'a   secretary
stating that the implication was   quite
irregular. Gouerni Hutton in forwarding this to Hughes   asked   for his reasons for  the   irregularity   spokeu   of.
Hughes in reply maintained   that as a
citizen of the   Umpire   he hud a right
to do what, he  did.    An officer of   the
Canadian militin wns uot to be regarded in the same way as an officer of the
permanent   service.    To   tins  Colonel
Foster wroto privately asking   Hughes
to withdraw his loiter befoie tho General bud taken official notice   of it.    If
not   it   might   result   in  making   his
"military  position   here   nutennble."
Colonel   Hughes  answered   that  oven
if he were straining military etiquette,
uo   inntter wha��� wns douo   he   should
not ask the letter back.    Goueral Hutton instructed Col. Foster  to any   that
HughoB' letter was "highly   improper
'   and   that "unless
it was   withdrawn    with   a   complete
apology it will bo tho duty of the geu-
oryl to submit   the   correspondence   in
quV'iition   to   the   Minister nf   Militia
for   reference   to   his   Excellency  the
Governor-General.    Col. Hughes wroto
unofficially   to   the   general,   sovorely
criticizing the   ability   of Colonel Buchanan to oommand, and criticized the
predecessors  of   the general,   pointing
to their failures and   permitting them-
solves to be Influenced by a few In Ottawa, Montreal  and Toronto.   "In nil
love and brotherhood" said Hughes,"!
know you allow yourself  to   be   meddling here and tbere in small  matters,
Even if your suggestions be approved
it must not he forgotten fiat we in
Canada know of British ways in ninny
things. We nre not iu lovo with her
because of her barnacles and hor dentures fastened upon her noble body.
We  have   un   love   for   these   British
remittance men, obanoe offspring and
others sent out to thoBe Colonics and
too often placed in positions Which
thoy nre inrapablo of filling." This
letter and next ono which was dated
the 88th of August was marked cnnlid-
ential. In the last letter Hughes said
that be hud yet to learn of any British
offlcor of note who had boon promoted
to a high command on his merits,
Lord Roberts nlone excepted. On
October 88, after the declaration of
war   Colonel Hughes wrote a   personal
letter to Hutton telling  bim   that he
(Hutton) had published slander
against him as an officer and 11 citizen
nnd as far as his statements concerned
him, they wero untrue nnd his attempt
to connect him with   Insubordination,
laughable and   s ringly   vindictive.

Ottawa, March 22.���In the House
today the PoatmaBter-General, in reply to n question ooncerning The Montreal Star being franked by tbe carload
by George Taylor, said be had knowledge that large quantities of The Star
were franked through tho mails by
Taylor and other Conservative members. He had no knowledge of tho
precise quantities. In the interest of
his hon. friend he hoped be hna assistance in having them franked, seeing
the quantities were so large. He wns
aware Taylor used stumps for franking. As to the oppoBite lines of policy
The Star, Le Journal, the ono being
anid to blame the Government for not
doing enough in.regard to contingents,
while the other acoused the Government for doing anything at all. he
did not know nnythiug about, because
ho did uot read either. As to whether
tho Government intended to take steps
to prevent tbe Baid George Taylor from
us-.ug the mails at publio expense, no
amendment of the statute in regard to
the franking privilege was in contemplation.
Hon. Mr. Mulock moved his fair
wage resolution which is as  follows:
"That it bo resolvod that all Government contracts should contain such
conditions as will prevont abuseB,
wbich may arise trom tbe sub-letting
of such contracts, nnd that every
effort shonld bo made to secure tho
payment of Buch wages as are generally
accepted aB current in eaoh, for competent workmen in the district where
tbo work is carried out and that thia
House cordially concurs in such a policy and deeiuB it tbe duty of the Government to take immediate steps to
givo effect thereto. It is hereby deolared that the work to wbich the foregoing policy shall apply inoludes not
only work undertaken hy the Government itself bnt also all works aided by
giant of Dominion   publio funds. "
He said that the first timo that a resolution of this kind was moved in tho
Imperial Parliament in 181)1. Not only
did tbe resolution he was proposing
deal with Government works, but
other works of publio character. Canada bad the experience of the Mother
Country in tbis matter. It would be
necessary to frame regulations for tbe
proper carrying out of the resolution.
Tho resolution in the Imperial Honse
waa adnptod in 1808 and a committee
was appointed in 18!)K to seo how it
was working. This committee reported in 1807. Mr. Mulock read from the
report of this committee which took
evidence in regard to the working of
tho system. It testified that the law
was working in the right direction although complaints were made
against it. Whilst the first attempts to
utilize  tbis  resolution  might not ac

complish what was expected of it, still,     tty .]nCJJ was Ilot discussed.
it could   be   improved   from   time   to | 	
time, when it was shown that suoh
improvements were necessary. Tho
first two propositions dealt with expenditure of public money to those
who supplied material and labor. As
to the question of Bub-oontraots, the
enforcement of what be proposed in
bis resolution, would be most desirable. The contractor would have to be
responsible for his agents and it
would uot bo possible for any contractor to defraud his workmen out of
their just rights. Then, bb to that
pait of the resolution wbich referred
to tair wages, it ought to have general
support, Contractors frequently moved around aud pulled down the labor
market in this way. His resolution
would put it beyond contrnctorB' interest to seek to interfere with labor
murkets Contractors will naturally
utilize all labor before applying to the
outside. Whut tho country was interested in was to boo tnat workmen
got a fair day's wage for a fair day's
work. Apart from tho humane point
of view it wns in the interest of the
country and Government to soe workmen get a fair wngo. If tho House
adopted the resolution it would ho the
duty of every Minister of tho Crown
to live up to it nnd see that tho principle which it doclared for was maintained.

against n railway company that was

Government!
Mnlook���It is not advisable perhaps
nt the presont moment to go into how
the law is to bo enforoed, but I see no
difficulty in doing so in the caao
whicli was pointed out to me. Bclon
the Dominion paid tho subsidy, it
could he arranged that the company
would have to show thnt thoir workmen wero getting current wng3s of
the district in which they woro employed. The resolution would have
Ihe effect and would soon be adopted
by Provincial Legislatures and all

THE INDIAN FAMIFE.
We have boen too absorbed iu tbo
South African war to take note of
what is happening in India. Millions
of our fellow Buhjeots iu that ancient
Empire aro starving to death. We
need not cite evidence of the destitution, or go into details. The Viceroy
says that thoy "uro face tn face with
famine of wntor and food nnd cattle
which, in particular areas affected, is
unprecedented in character and intensity. " And further: "Tho crisis ia
one which not Iobb tbnn an Imperial
war demands the loyal and enthusiastic co-operation of all who love India. To that oo-operatiou in the
months of trial that lio before ns, on
behalf of the Government of India, I
unhesitatingly appeal."
It has bean deoidedjto raiso a Famine Fund in Nelson. Let us not bo
discournged by tbe immensity of the
destitution. The small sum of ouo
dollar will sustain life in one of those
starving Indians for a mouth. Nelson,
thon. small asj it is, aud stupendous
us tho calamity may he, enn make its
sympathy felt to au appreciable extent.
Mr. Kydd, of tho Merchants' Bunk
of Halifax, has ^kindly consented to
not as treasurer of tho Fund. All contributions will be acknowledged
through The Miner, aud nfter remittance will he aosiBowledged a second
time in Tbo Indian Standard, published at Rutlam, Central India. Tbo
good work of assisting to provide re--
lief for those starving millions is progressing at numerouB places tnrough-
out the Dominion ; happy, prosperous,
and generous Nelson should uot be behind.
OF SINSTER PORTENT.
There bns been, and is yet, rivalry
between Vancouver and Victoria, although for Bhamn's snke both endeavor
to hide it. Tin.- rivalry is at the
root of t lint sectional feeling whioh
more than once has nlmost openly arrayed Island aud Mainland in a struggle for supremacy. We believe it is
tru - that the over-reaching ambition
and the consuming selfishness of Vancouver have beeu mainly responsible
for this condition of tnings, and although of the Mainland tho Interior
has been dispo-od to give its sympathy
to Victoria. There is danger that thin
favor i ��� about to be withdrawn, nnd
that at no distant day a uuitod Mainland will a���inn,' control of publio
affairs, witb slight regard for thu
wishes and in absolute defiance of the
power of the Island.
Tho circumstances hnve been bus-
picous from the very beginning of tbis
latest phase of tho crisis, Tbe suspicion is deepened by tbe following,
from Tbo Vancouver Provinoe:
"There is very good reason to bo-
lievo thut the Dunsmuir interests will
actively support Mr. Martin in the
coming contest, even to tbe extent of
contributing substantially towards the
expenses of tbo Government side.
Moreover, tbe few seats in which they
have a controlling influence aro to be
thrown, if possible, to Mr. Martin's
support." A combination between
Mr. Dunsmuir and Mr. Mnrtin would
be an unnatural one, and could only
be effected foi a sinstor purpose. It
would bo impossible to find two mon
more opposed in training, disposition,
nud sentiment. There is nothing in
common between them, unless it be a
selfishness that could ho turned to their
mutual advantage. Mr. Dunsmuir
has been credited with having controlled pust Legislatures, and it Is beliov-
oil that be and Tiie Colonist newspaper, which he owns and whoso policy be directs, nre so strenuously opposing the adoption of Federal party
lines through fear that control will be
lost to him. His power can only bo
preserved by maintaining the system
of personal government thnt has prevailed iu the past. It is in the hope
of |" i|" tuatiiiK that system that Mr.
Dunsmuir is throwing his support to
Mr. Martin.
Tbe Miner has bad very little sympathy with tho frequent attacks mi
"tbo Dunsmnirs,'' but it confesses tbnt
it oonld only view with alarm a combination so fraught Willi danger to the
general public Interests. It could only
mean that Mr. Diinniiiuii and Mr.
Martin bad United nn the common
ground nf plunder. If the Diinsmiiir
inlliicnce for evil, as that would be,
con only be destroyed by arraying
Mainland BgBlnsi Island, we bolievo
the speotacle of tbOSS two linked arms
in a political OOTltest would be aggravation enough to drive the people to
it.
The civio officials are taking extreme measures tn collecting the road
tax from Italians. Those officials are
acting under iustruotions, nnd if the
prooeedings tnkon seom liaish tbey aro
rot to bo blamed. And as the road
tax is a reasonable and jnst one, it is
"iilv proper thnt Italians as well as
otherB shall bo made to pay it. It may
be uecesssry to hunt these foreigners
liko criminals, and whon run down to
take thorn before the Police Magistrate
and have them heuvily fined or oast
into prison. But unless tbis treatment
is meted out lo all delinquents,tho dis
crimination is unjust, of course, uml
many will think it brntal. Are there
nib,-is besides Italians who are in ar
rears for road tax? In view of the
drmtio measures tnkon against these
we think it is tbe duty of tbo Couuoil
to mako iuquiry and soe that all are
treated alike. It may be tbe policy
of tho corporation to drive Italian:
out of tbe town, and if bo it will proh
ably bo wiser, before carrying it out
to givo us all an opportunity to doter
mine whether it is n policy the town
would desire to have adopted. Mayor
Houston, unfortunately, is afflicted
with a groat many unreasonable prejudices, and it is a very grave question
whether he is to be permitted to indulge them at the expense of tbo public iuterest. A respbotable, industrious, law-abiding Italian is as good a
citizen as any othor, and is deserving
of liko protootion and consideration.
Wo are told from Ottawa that the
people themselves must deal with
Lieutenant-Governor Molunos iu the
fiist instance. That is right ouough;
but what are tho peoplo to do when
they are not given tho opporfuuity to
doal with him? If we hnd u Goveruor
willing to obsene n decent regard foi
the unfailing practice in such oases, be
would have given Mr. Martin a weok
to form his Cabinet nnd then ordered
him to tbe country at once. In that
case the people conld net. Bnt as it is
Mr. Martin is taking the summer to
complete his Cabinet, and the election
will ho held when it pleasos him to
give tbo word. Our Goveruor is believed to be merely a tool of Mr. Martin's, and the peoplo can enly look on
in helpless amazement. As it ia out of
their powor to move tbe Governor to
move Mr. Martin, they can only appeal to Ottawa to oome to their relief.
A few weekB ago The Miner sng
gested that the forest resources of this
Provinco, if protected from destruc
tiou, would yet piove of great value as
a Bnpply for pulpwood for the manufacture of paper. A Mr. Richardson,
of the Graham Paper Company, of St.
Louis, one of the largest of tbe kiud iu
the world, is viBitmg Vancouver, aud
has expressed au opinion very much ou
tho line of that of Tbe Miner. He
tbink9 that with our enormous water
power and abundant pulp forests we
should be supplying paper not only to
tbe home market but to tbe whole of
the Orient. Some day a man will
come along with money and enterprise
enough to go into the business on a
largo soale, and in dne time British
Cslumbia will bo known as one of the
largest prodnoeis of paper on tbe continent. ,
Onr usonlly correct contemporary,
The Rossland Rooord, is aFtray m
saying thnt Mr. Potts, to whom it iB
rumored the portfolio of Finsnoo in
the Martin Governmonf has beeu tendered, is tbo junior member of tbe law
firm of Tupper, Peters & Potts. Mr.
Potts caaaed to be a member of that
firm some time ago, and it is inconceivable that he oan be considering a
proposal to tako office under Mr. Mnrtin.

L1VLHS AT WORK.
Lost   K. & S.  Burne Located by Capt.
Moore.
"I oan't find any lmr|re, bnt have
found a box car " This was the fir-it
meSBOtje   ever sent from tbe   bottom of
Koot ly Lake and   was written   on a
Hiitto 7") feet belew tbe surface by Captain .lames Moore, a submarine diver,
and was sent np to Cupt. A. K. Mac-
rlonalil, who was in charge of the apparatus above water.
Capt. Moore is nn experienced submarine diver from Vancouver, who
was ompluyed by the C P. R. to look
for the K. & S. barge that wns sunk
off the 0, P, K. pier about three
months ago. The burge was about
tbree-iiunrters loaded with stone aud
sank in about sixty feet of water, but
her exact whereabouts were unknown
and (,'npr. Moore went down to mnke
n survey of her location and condition.
The diving nppurntus was put on a
small scow which wns anchored ns
near us possible to where the burge
wus supposed to be. After taking off
his cost and waistcoat the captain put
on a heavy woollen sweater, thick
woollen rights nud a woollen cnp.
Over the tights he wenrB heavy woollen hip stockings. The diving suit,
wbich is made of a heavy twilled fabric intorwoven with rubber was then
put ou. This euvelopes the whole
DOfly with the exception of the hands
anil head. At the wrists uro wide rubber end's which fit closely over tho
wrist and ure made watertight by
strong rubber bauds. A padded collar
is worn around the neck to keep the
weight of tho helmet oft the shoulders.
The neck of the diving suit is made
with a wide bund of half-inch rubber
and to it is clumped by thumb screwB
n wide copper neck-piece to which is
attached the helmet. Canvas boots are
then put on and over these are drawn
the heavy leather diving shoes with
leaden soles Thcno bonis weigh about
;i() pounds The headpiece is made of
copper aud has three openings for light
uud vision, these mo protected by bars
and covered with heavy glnss. This is
slipped over the head aud screwed
firmly ou to the copper neckpiece, the
visor in front being lift' open.. At
the back of the helmet is attnehed the
pipe which is connected with the air
pump. A strong knife is buckled
arouud the waist and heavy weights
fastened to the chest and back and
the diver is ready for the descent.
Captain Maodonald then fastened ulife
line nrniin 1 Cupt. Moore's chest und
started the men at the pumps. After
a parting word to Captain Moore ho
screwed the glass visor in place and
tho diver stepped to the edge of the
scow und dropped into the water. Ho
sank slowlv to the bottom while Onp-
t.iiii Macdouuld steadied the signal
rope and kept uu eye on the nir pipe.
As soon as he struck the bottom he
moved nipirily nwuy nnd commenced
the search for the sunken scow. His
course coul.i be followed by the bubbles
that arose from the escupe vnlvo in his
helmet. After being down about n
hull' hour Captain Moore signalled to
dipt. Macdouuld and a slate with a
pencil attached was sent down to him.
In a short while Cupt. Macdonald
pulled up the slate nnd found thereon
the message which bends this column.
Capt. Moore had found a box car which
was lost off the slip over a yeur ago.
In a short whilo he came to the surface and reported finding the car.
After a rest he went down again nnd
in abiiiii teu minutes enme a signal
along tho line that indicated that he
bad found Ihe barge. When bo oame
up be reported that the barge was lying in about 66 feet nf water and could
be raised. Her caigo of stone was still
ou her. After making a bnoy fust to
a line aud anchoring it over the barge
operations were suspended nntil today.
Hoth Capt. Macdonald and Capt.
Moore were in the Navy nud nre old
bnads at the business having done a
grent denl of submarine work. They
wili resume operations again today
and the first steps towards raising the
bnrge will be taken.

General Hutton recommended that
Colons] Hughes be removed from command of bis regiment and placed ou
the retired list. On October 88, Colonel Hughes wrote, "on train," to
General lluttnn expressing regret at
the unfortunate misunderstanding between them. "My apology," said
Hughes, "for giving wny to temper
and displaying au independent spirit,
is that 1 wns given to believe thut I wus
to be superseded In Ihe Tiansvnnl."
Again on October 2~, Colonel Hughes
wrote what ho called nn ample apology
for certain letters written the General
under excitement. Ho regretted what
he said about the British serivco nnd
wisher',   to   withdraw   whatever   wns
deemed Insubordination. This apology wns not sntifactory to Hntton und
the General wrote on it that if no otli-
cil apology wns given Hughes would

Hughes,  who evidently   did not   again
apologize, On Janusiy in. Colonel
