Eleventh Year
Sir Wilfrid  Laurier  Warns
the Liberals to Be
Tomorrow's Labor Convention   in   Nelson -Ralph
Smith at Home.
In a speech delivered at St. Il.va-
clnthe last week Sir Wilfid Laurier
stilled that tho elections were near
ami warned the Liberals to he ready
at once for the fray. It appears to be
taken for granted throughout the Dominion that tho elections will taki
place before November 15,
Rnlpli Smith, M, P, 1'., upon his arrival from the Last said to a correspondent of The Victoria Times: "I
have definitely decided to run. 1 re-
eeiroil the unantomus endorsation of
the Congress, BBking me to run, and 1
have finally decided. Some time ago
Mr. Sloan came to me iu Nanaimo

Here now he has many names, of
friends of mine, on his requisition pa-
par, of course, they will desert him
when they find how they have been
deceived, Mr. Sloan is everything to
���verybody. If lie meets a Conservative
lie gives him a talk and the same
with a Liberal, lie was a little too
previous, Vou can say that I am in
the Held as an Independent Labor candidate, and of course 1 will resign my
position In the local Legislature bo-
fore I am officially nominated for the
House of Commons at Ottawa,''
Tlie Miller seems to be well posted
as I" what will be done by the Labor
men mi Wednesday. It says the majority of the delegates are pledged to
vote foi .lames Wilks.and that he will
be a candidate, Is The Miner preparing to Hop? Will it drop Candidate
MaeNeill and support Candidate
nllks? Stranger things have happened,   The Tribune.
(Indeed they have, That latest Hop
of Mr, Houston, for instance.)
Thu Greenwood Miner says: The
Unionist delegates to the Nelson convention should consider the question
carefully before placingucandidate in
'he field. It is an easy matter to select
a candidate.hut it is often much more
difficult to elect him. In the last Pro-
"inelal campaign the Martin candidates had in nearly every constitu-
'���ii'T the support of Unionists, the
exceptions being Nelson and Slocan
ridings, In only one constituency���
Kossland was a Martin candidate
successful, ami he by the narrow ma-
>"'>>��� of 34. Mr. Curtis polled 11(1 per
"��nt. of the labor vote of tho Boundary, ami in Greenwood 08 per cent, of
the Liberal vote, and yet he only poll-
'���'l 013 out of the 1,203 votes cast. Out
Of tho Oia voles which Mr. Curtis revived a labor candidate will do well
,f !"' get ISO votes, and from tbe
Mackintosh followers 15 votes. This
figure-IB' is the outside vote that a
J*j>w candidate can poll in the
Boundary. In North Vulo the Martin
candidate received, In the Provincial
pwpnlgn, 85 votes out of 1,000 polled;
'" MSt Vale, inn out of 1,000; In West

lh" Silvcrtoiihin says:    It   has been

labor leaders is known throughout the
Riding much more widely than either
of the old line candidates, ami where
parly lines are felt SO little as they
are in the mining districts, a man's
personality and range of acquaintance
does more to elect him than his party
New York, Oot, 3,���Tho Iierlin correspondent of The London Standard
learns that England's reply to the
German circular in reference to China
is shaped In a very friendly and
affirmative tone. The Tribune's London correspondent cables: "Iierlin,
Oct. 2.��� The Berliner Tngeblatt in the
course of a reference to I'nited States
Ambassador White's letter to the German-American republicans of New
York City, says: The Germans will
not regard President McKinley's answer to Count Von Buclow's note as a
proof of friendship. We undertake
to advise President McKinloy that he
cannot have the German-American
vote unless he changes his Chinese
policy.' "
Father Drummond's Lecture
at the Opera House Last
Recalls  Incidents   Showing
the Bravery of the Irish
Lord Roberts Pays a Splendid
One to Departing Canadian Troops.
Under data of Pretoria, Sept. 2r>, a
special to the Toronto Mail and Empire says:
"General Roberts, iu the presence
of Lady Huberts, and   bis   daughters,
inspected six companies of the Canadian regiment, who were about to
take train for Cape Town ou their
way home after a year's service in
South Africa.
"Crowds were present,ami the men,
who are in excellent health, making
a splendid appearance, the scene was
a brilliant one.
"After the march past,General Roberts addressed the troops,    lie said:
'I cannot allow- you to depart
without expressing my thanks for the
appreciation of your loyal services and
excellent work, especially at Paardc-
berg, on February 27. 1 am sure thc\
people of Canada will be pleased to
hear how gallantly and how splendidly you have all behaved in action.
Deeply 1 regret the losses you have
Buffered. I should have been happier
if you had returned in your full
Btrength. The regiment lias bad Kid
killed or wounded; but no one could
expect you to pass through so arduous
a campaign without losses. I am
sorry that some of you arc obliged to
return sooner than the rest of tbe regiment, but I recognise the urgency of
private affairs, I am confident that
tho Queon and liritisli people will
never forget your services. If it
should ever be iny good fortune to visit Canada, I hope to meet you all
"After the troops bad given cheers
for the Queen and Field Marshal, the
latter shook hands with the Canadian
illieers   and   presented   them   ono
me to Lady Roberts. "

A splendid audience greeted Father
Drummond at the Opera House last
evening. The lecturer was warmly
and frequently applauded as he dis-
OUSSed his theme, "The Irishman as a
Soldier" which was treated iu a style
that aroused his bearers to mingled
bursts of cheers and laughter. Father
Drummond was introduced by Mr.
W. A. Galllher, and the cheers which
arose at the end of the lecture were
followed by a rising vote of thanks
to tho lecturer. Father Drummond
said in part:
"Ladies and Gentlemen.���I wish to
draw attention to what the Irishman
has done iu the past and show his
brave    qualities.     Englishmen    are
not slow to note the superior bravery
of Krin's sons. Winston Churchill,
tho war correspondent pays a compliment to the Irish soldiers iu his despatch anent tbe escape of tbe armored train at Chievely. lie says that
when the tight was hottest and the
volunteers were called to try aud clear
the tracks,live of tho Dublin Fusiliers
came heroically into the open while
the Devon aud Natal carbineers kept
under shelter. Who has not heard of
the Tipperary boy, hardly fifteen
years old, who was given a silver
medal by the Queen and who bad been
wounded at the battle of Colenso and
though wounded rushed on and lost
his bugle on the way. The Irishman
naturally loves a light, but what he
wants to see is his antagonist downed,
not killed. If he must kill him ho
will, but he had much rather see him
get up to he knocked down once more.
Soldiers of other nations seem to
delight in mere butchery. No real
Irishman could take pleasure in mow
ing down savages with Maxim guns
or stilling liners with lyddite fumes.
He would think such overwhelming
odds cowardly. Nothing is more natural than to see a quiet peaceful farmer at tho fair, walking along with
a scythe on his shoulder and upon
coming upon two men having a Bght,
that is to say a fair light, lay down
his scythe, take off his coat roll up
his sleeves and then taking bis stick
and looking for a moment to see
which side was loosing, which was
the weaker side, to rush Into the fighl
and smash the lirst head that comes
in his way. lle feels no instinct to
take the winning side, thai Is not   an
Irishman's taste.   They tell an   anecdote as to a Bligoman  arrested  for
having killed another man in a row
at a fair. It was proved that he had
���truck him but once on the head and
that the dead man had an abnormally
thin skull. The judge asked the culprit if he had anything to say In his
defense. 'Well you honor,' said he,
I've only this to say. What business
had a man with a skull like that at a
fair.' You see he was sorry he killed
him. He never meant to do so. It
was all the fault of the thin skull."
In speaking of the resourceful initiative of the Irish, Father Druminond
said: "A thoroughly disciplined
soldier is good, but to he perfect, be
must occasionally tako the Initiative
himself, and then ho reveals the military resoures latent within him. In
January, 1708, Marshal VHleroy was
surprised   by   Prince   Eugene and the
Ocrmans in the town  of Cremona,
The surprise was   skillfully   managed
and would   no   doubt  have   suit led

if   Ihe   Altbonc     regiment    by
honey being a little  apprehensive  in
the evening, had   given orders for   an
early drill   aud    parade.   Fearing  to
sleep,  he   threw   himself   down   fully
dressed on   his   bed.    Towards   morning he heard   11   disturbance   and  on
rushing out of   his quarters found his
men all drawn   up   in   line   of   battle
and fully armed, but   dressed only   in
their night shirts.     He did   not   send
them back   to dress, hut placing himself at their head   led   them   as   they
were against the Germans.   The silent
entrance of the enemy through a long
unused   aqueduct     enabled   them   to
open the gates and   admit seven thousand Germans, O'Mahoney first swept
the ramparts of the enemy and recaptured     the   cannon.    Next,   in   their
night shirts, notwithstanding   the inclement weather, they   drove the tier-
man infantry before them from street
to street.      At   last   these half naked
Irishmen   had   to   face   the   Imperial
Cuirassiers, then accounted   the finest
steel clad horse   men in Europe.    The
bold dash   of   tbe   heavy  cavalry was
met by a steady and well directed   fire
by the Irish   aud   then   the   gleaming
sabre crosses with the   bayonet.    The
light was short, sharp and decisive in
favor of the Irish, tbe   German leader
is killed, the Cuirassirs retreat in hot
haste,    Cremona   is   saved,  France   is
jubilant ami all Europe is astonished
at Prince Eugene's defeat by so small
a force  of   exiled   Irish   soldiers.    To
appreciate what tbe resourceful   initiative of the Irish   overcame  at Fonte-
noy one   must remember what   heroes
they overcame.    Tlie Duke of Cumberland, the pitiless   duke, assembled all
the  best  soldiers   of  his  army,   and
formed   them   into   a   column   of  six
thousand   men,   with   six   cannon   in
front of them and six on   either   side,
they   like   Tennyson's     heroes   "had
cannon to   right   of   them,   eaunon to
left of them. "    Lord John   Hay   gave
them orders to   march   right   through
the village of Fontenoy,right through
the centre of   the   French,   until they
got to their rear.aud then to turn and
sweep   them   off the field.    Never   in
the annals of history   since the Macedonian   phalanx   was anything   more
glorious seen than   the march of these
six thousand   Englishmen   that   day.
The   French   closed   in around   them
battering tho   head   of   their   column
with cannon, but the column marched
on as if it were made  of triple Steele.
As the Englishmen   inarched through
the Fienc.i   lines,    men   fell  on every
side, but as soon as   one man fell   the
rest dressed up and closed the column.
On they marched like a  hngh   battering   ram of brass, in   vain the French
sharpshooters   harassed   their   flanks,
in vain the French   infantry  tried   to
withstand thcm,iu vain did the King's
Household Cavalry charge upon them,
they were   scattered   by   tho   Knglish
flro.  At length King Louis  turned his
rein to tly but   Marshal   Sax   stopped
him.      Wait my liege' he said, 'lot us
set   the   Irish   at   them.'    The     Irish
under Lord (Tare charged with a wild
Irish yell and swept tho  enemy   from
the hill and in   a   very   few   minutes
that Knglish phalanx was a disorganized   rabble.    Well   might George the
Second, exclaim:    'Cursed be the laws
that deprive me of such subjects.'    No
wonder witli such bravery,   such   discipline,   such     fertility   of   resource,
Irishmen should have been eagerly accepted in all the armies of Kuropc and
America.     From   tlie   final   surrender
of Limerick to the   era   of the French
Revolution three  quarters of n  million of Irishmen served   in the armies
and   navies of Europe  alone,    lu   the
American   Revolutionary   war, Wl   per
cent, of the   men    under   Washington
were Irish.    Al one    time almost half
Ihe soldiers in the Hritish navy hailed
from the Groen Isle.    These   aie facts
approximately known by the majority
of well infori I   persons, hut what is
mil so generally known Is the great
ability for organi/.llon manifested by
Irish commanders in both army and
navy. To begin with the latter, it
was John Harry, a native of tbe County ,,f Wexford, who organised the
American navy. lie was no doubt a
great sea tighter but was especially a
great organiser. It was thanks to
Jack Harry's training, that the American gunners were the lirst to uno
sights lo their guns thus making their
broadsides more deadly than ours in
the battle of 1818, and history will
tell how disastrously they poured
their fire into our frigates. Tbe Initial impulse thus given by an Irishman lias resulted In the present startling accuracy of the American naval
tire and it Is very doubtful If Hritish
gunners inn equal or surpass them iu
Oils  respect. "
Ten-Stamp Mill Will   Be In

ore are 111 sight and 1,10(1 feet of tunneling and slnfliug has been completed. The assays of the ore which
has been taken from the mine show
0.02 ounces of gold and 30.1 of silver.
An amalgamation test showed that
4.22 ounces of gold and 13.33 of silver
would lie saved, representing 70 per
cent of the values of tbe ore.

Greenwood, Oct, 8.���Now   thai   thu
shipping stage has really been arrived
at by many of the mines throughout
the Boundary district. Interest on the
outside is again pointing this way.
Hardly a day passes that a representative of capital is not out ill the several camps visiting and inspecting
properties with a view to negotiations. The reports from the big producing mines are all favorable.
Phoenix is   steadily forging ahead.
At     the     properties   of     the    Miner-
Graves syndicate   it.',  persons are employed, and this force   will shortly be
added to considerably.    The Hnowshoe
has a payroll of IT and tin- War Kaglc
nearly the   same   number,    W.  Yolen
Williams, superintendent of the Knob
Hill-old    Ironsides-Victoria    groups,
says that by the   lirst of  next    month
the ore shipments, now  averaging 300
tons daily to   the   Grand  Forks   sind
ter, will be  doubled.    By   that   time
the Knob Hill new 10-drlll   compress
or plant will lie in full   running opcr
at ion and more men   will be placed at
work in the   slopes already opened up,
on the tunnel level.     Al  Ihe old Ironsides sloping is iu progress on the m'i-
olid and third   levels.     On the ���!"" fool
level of tile Victoria   claim,   which is
connected     with   the     old    Ironsides
workings, prospecting   is   in progress
with diamond drills.
The win/.e from the ' railroad" tunnel on the Snowshoe, the properly of
Ihe Hritish Columbia I Rossland and
Slocan) syndicate, is down 30 feet in
a good grade of ore. The tunnel is in
38fi feet, and at. a point aboul 200 fed
in, the  winze   is   being   sunk.     It    is
of Spokane, is pushing work in the
development of the Evening Star.
The claim ami the Sclliy, adjoining,
he has under bond for 845,000, Th
shaft is down IT feet. Recent assays
of the ore taken out in tlie sinking
gave a value of '.I per [cent, copper. t?l
in gold and SI.'.'0 in silver. Figuring
copper at I.'1 cents, makes B total of
83 ,20 pci- Ion. The shaft will he continued down to the Ion-foot level,
when crosscutling of the big ore body
will be started.
In Deadwood camp shipments of ore
from tlie bins of tbe Motbei Lode
mine will lie commenced at once to
the (Ircenwood smelter. This i
merely to malic room for ore now be
ing taken out in development. Th
bins at tlie smelter have a capacity 0
2.ono tons and this will momentarily
relieve tlie pressure at the mine.
On the Greyhound, in the same
camp, after crosscutting the ore body
:is feet at Ihe mil-foot level, sinking
has again heen resumed.
Tbe shaft ou tho Marguerite having
reached a depth of 100 feet, crosscuts
east and west nave been started. The
shaft was sunk midway between parallel veins and it will not be many
days, it is believed, before, the workings on both sides will be in ore. The
tunnel on tlie Great Hopes, tho adjoining claim, is now in 210 feet nnd
is being continued.
At the Morrison mine, in the north
end of the camp, drifting is in progress on what is known as the number two ledge. The ore body lias been
opened up for Is feet and the showing is reported to he a good one. Development is also in progress on the
Sunset and lluckhorn mines in the
same camp.
At the II. C. mine in Summit camp
the ore shipments for the present
month will average 2.1100 tons. In
places the slopes opened up from wall
to wall show the ore body to be fully
no fei't in width. It is a splendid
grade of chalcopyrlte. The mine employs loo men. When sinking is resumed, after the opening up of further sloping ground, the force will be
added to.
From Camp MoKinuey encouraging
news is to hand. Since Managing Director (ieorge II. McAulay of the Cariboo Camp was in camp a partial idea
of the proposed additional develop
incut of the mine lias been made public, A new shaft is to be sunk to a
depth of :,i)(i feet on the Okanogan
claim. Ihe most easterly ground of
the seven contiguous claims owned by
the company. At the present time
the fourth level, at a depth of 355 feet
from tlie main working shaft, is already half across the Okanogan
ground, and it is bore that some of
the nest grade of ore has been found
in tbe mine. It is also proposed to
continue the levels west from tbe main
shaft, a considerable distance into
virgin ground.
To date mining operations on what
is   known   as   the   Cariboo     lode,   of
which   Iiu pany   owns 4,TOO   feet
ill length, has been mostly within the
limits of tbe Cariboo. Amelia and

Continuously    for    the next  two years.
While no announcement has been

In The Miner of yesterday we pub-
11 il the impri ���inns of a gentleman
hail just returned from a visit to
the Lardeau country. The interview
began: "Business at present is very
quiet iii tlie l.in'iicaii district.owing to
the stopping of construction on the
railroads. Prospectors ami business
men who have been there for live or
six years are becoming disheartened
on account of the fact thai a great
many ol them have reached their last
hy keeping up assessment, etc. When
Ihe railroad started many did extra
development work- mi their property,
hut now as construction has stopped
soin.- are disgusted and feci like
throwing up their claims.'* It is na
tural that there should lie disappointment under the circumstances. The
people of tlie Lardeau district were
olatcd with the prospect of a railway,
anil made plans which liny persuaded
themselves would soon he realised.
Il is not pleasant to see them go toppling over, one alter the other.
I tut. before venting all the anger
of their disappointment on the railway
people they shouhl consider whether
these arc Ihe only persons who are
to blame. The conditions of the
Kootenay are not unlike those of
Manitoba twelve or fifteen years ago,
only instead of settlers rushing in to
got a homestead here they are hunting lor prospects, or for some business
chance that arises out of mining development. In the early days of .Manitoba there were settlers who could
not content themselves witli a quarter-section near the main line of railway, hut must needs go away ten.
fifteen, or twenty miles into an unsettled region, ami they had no sooner
begun to produce more than they
could consume than they Cried for a
railway. This happened all around,
and in tlie course of a very few years
the railway people were dismayed
with demands for railways in every
direction, These demands were so
loud and so frequent, and so readily
encouraged by politicians and agitators, that a single settler whose fancy
took him into an Isolated region conceived   himself   entitled    to    a     line
OUgh his back yard.
The din was so great that the   railway   people   became   convinced   they
must have heen guilty of some atrocious neglect,   anil   branches   here   and
there wen- hastily constructed.    They
were built before   their   time   and of
course did not pay.    Some of them are
uoi   paying yet,   ami   merchants   and
other business men   in   Manitoba,    in

rashness   or   imprudence  of  men
��� rushed oil' iu advance Of the rail
ways. Men who do Ibis, whether iu
carch of 0 homestead or a prospect,
take their chance. The prospector,
, j course, must go where ihe mineral

The Victoria Colonist quotes Mr.
Mcllride as saying that within twelve
months the Government would see
that a railway through the Cliilli-
wack Valley would be under construction. The Colonist understands the
statement to moan that it is "the intention of the liovernmcnt to form
and carry out a plan of railway construction that would lead to the beginning of work within a year of a
lino from the Coast to Kootenay."
It is such enterprises as this that the
(lovernment, whether of the Province or tho Dominion, should encourage wiili substantial assistance. Private effort should not be expected to
engage in undertakings that may be
of immediate public .advantage, hut
which do not present any immediate
prospect of dividends. Private companies, like private individuals, are
excused if they devote themselves to
their own interests: the opening up of
districts or Provinces is the work of
Governments, It is conceived to be
in the interest of a large portion of
Hritish Columbia to open up direct
communication between the Coast and
Kootenay. and the Victoria Government appear to be alive to their responsibility in the premises, It is a
pity something additional could not

this statement of "Crestou being the
proper place for the olliee'' and to
point out thai il. is not by any means
as well situated as Kuskonook for the
following reasons: First, Crcston is
situated live miles from the extreme
south boundary line of the district,
and l.'i miles from the north boundary
line, whilst Kuskonook is nearly the
geographical centre of the district and
easy of access cither by boat. rail, or

a larger percentage of the claim owners live also lo the north of Kuskonook.

Bronzed, and hh a rule boarded,
hard aa nails, and, in the visual acceptation ol the word, unsoldierly
such is the appearanee ol tho Hritish
soldier at present Bervlng In tho
Transvaal and Orange Rivor Colony.
Not even his most ardent admirers
could oall him smart; liis clothes
patched with anything that oame
handy at the time, his kit put up in a
rough-and-ready manner,
However, our men themselves are
a splendid lot, Btrong and well made,
giving little or no trouble to their
officers! cheerful undei the most
discouraging oircumstnnccB, often
singing when it ruins, marching, and
as a rule, fighting in stolid silence,
A tramp of some 500 miles, often on
half rations, under a hot sun byday
and frequently drenched by rain or
chilled By frost at night, a blanket
and a waterproof sheet being1 their
onlv covering, has made them what
tiiey live, thorough soldiers; no pipe
clav or polish about them, but eminently serviceable and In condition to
bear the hardships of war,
At the commencement of the campaign the Hritish soldier began by
losing his kit, leaving behind him
what was useless and cumbersome; at
this stage of the war, however, very
little is considered (is useless. The
men have, In fact, learned to shift for
themselves, though largely owing to
the Jdlfference In training of the two
service, they arc not so expert at the
business as the bluejacket, who is a
worthy rival of the Frenchman In this
respect. Nevertheless, tbe Improvement since the beginning of the war
is very marked, and the time within
which, after arriving in camp, the
cooking pots arc on the Bres has heen
reduced by at least ono-half within
the last six months,
At a halt on the line of march In a
country where wood was scarce, the
men would collect all they possibly
could and carry it witli them for
miles, not heeding the extra weight;
then, on reaching the camping
ground,they would anticipate the regulation tea by cooking In their canteens, ineiilic meal or any other "luxuries" they had heen able to obtain,
and often nic.'ilic meal was a luxury.
Latterly Hour has been issued in
lieu (it liulf biscuit ration, the men
having to cook it as best they could.
Dae wonders what they Would have
done with  it a few months ago.
It is remarkable what care and attention they pay to their rifles, having learned to know the value of a
bolt which works smoothly, and a
magazine spring which acts when required.
(in the march the men would go on
mechanically, more liko trek oxen
than anything else, smoking when
they had the means, scarcely ever

It is curous fact that, on the infantryman, shells have a greater moral
effect than ritie bullets, though the
latter are by far the more effective,
While the gunner, on the other hand,
would rather be under shell than rifle
tire. Neither loves the merry pompom, which, though the least dangerous, has an effect on the nerves which
no one can help experiencing.
At tbe commencement of the campaign the man serving with the colors
was a decidedly better soldier than
the reservist. The latter came fiom

with the regiment, and did not experience that keen sense of delight at
the prospect of seeing active service
which his confrere with the colors
felt, lie had home ties; active service, therefore, meant more to him.
He wished to get hack, to have done
with the war and the country.and the
Sooner the better   for him.
This was only to he expected. Probably any Continental nation, in u
great war beyond the. seas, will find
this desire still more marked among
the reservists of its Held army. In action the reservist probably realizes
the danger more than the younger
men, though he docs his dutv equally
well���all the greater erdlt to him.
Many were too old for the long
marches and hardships, and had to he

months, however, the reservist was.as

having more resource and self-reliance when in a difficult .situation.
One word with regard to our soldiers' qvalltios as marksmen, (liven
equal advantages, they are undoubtedly us good and probably better shots
than the Hoers; they arc hampered by
having as a rule, to attack, over open
ground, a straight-shooting, concealed enemy, and by the difficulty of
judging distance In this country. The

the cars Is perfeclty white. Eaoh ear
is tan colored and a white streak runs
through the forehead as accurately as
if made by the barber for n favorite

dark spot which makes him look as

the body is tan colored. Although
the pup is only  about  three  months

William Jones who escaped from
the Provincial jail here lust Thursday
forenoon, was arrested at Vinir two
days afterwards but was released and
is now probably forever beyond the
reach of the police utUcials, Word

was acting in a suspicious manner,
und was arrested by the constable

description which he had received

the man that was wanted or not. so
the prisoner was released after being

Young Man   Pleads  Guilty to Killing
of Joseph Sifton.
London, Out., (lei. :.'.���-A sensation
was caused in Ihe Assize Court here
when Walter Herbert, charged with
being an accomplice of Herald Sifton
in the murder of Joseph Sifton. the
hitter's father, pleaded guilty of the
actual killing.
Both prisoners had been brought before His Lordship for trial, and Herbert was to be defended by Mr. Meredith, who was as greatly surprised us
wus the court ut the young mun's admission of guilt.
Gerald Sifton in a clear, strong
voice, declared that he wus innocent n
few minutes before Herbert gave his
unswer to the court clerk.
His Lordship asked if Herbert's
counsel was in the room, und upon
Mr. Meredith arising, the court stated that he did not, think the young
man wus aware of thu seriousness of
bis position. His counsel replied Hint
as his client hud once before mndc u
confession, und now seemed determined to stick to It, he (the counsel) hud

Shenandoah.I'a..(let.:.1. Superintendent Scinlicr. of the Lehigh Coal and
Navigation Company's collieries at
Lansford. today Informed the Associated Press correspondent that no
trouble wus anticipated in the I'unth
it Creek Valley. "We have ten collieries   there, employing   j.uin men,"
said Mr. Beinher,   "and  they are all
working with full forces. No attempt
was made this morning to interfere
with our workmen and we do not
think this strike will affect our collieries. "
The superintendent suid that he
understood mat a few- mine workers
who bail joined the union at a meeting last  night ut   Lunsford   were   nl-
ruady members, having enrolled them
selves   ut     Couldale.    (lenerul    Cobin
said today that he expected  to send

of these men hail ben threatened  by

tcrly opposed to the match us her
futlicr-in-luw the luto Duke.
The young Duke is now of age and
his own muster. He bus been buck
from Africa several months, and it
bus excited no little comment that
whereas when ho came to England
for a tew weeks Immediately after
his grandfather's death, he spent his
whole time with the Wests,|ni'glecting
his own family, he bus not been near
them since his return, nnd bus been
seen nowhere with a beautiful girl to
whom he was believed to be affianced.
The Grosvcnors, meanwhile, arc
going about everywhere denying the
existence of any engagement and ridiculing the report Hint anything of the
kind exists, and it is generally believed that the match is broken off.
Some people here arc even wicked
enough to suggest that the widow of
Lord Randolph Churchill has not been
altogether a stranger to the rupture
of this engagement, to which she was
glad to contribute by way of getting
even with Miss West's mother���that
is to say, her own mother-in-law���for
all the abuse t) which Mrs. Corn-
wullis West had subjected in her connection with her own marriage
with Cornwallis  West.
Had the marriage between Miss
Sbelagh West and the Duke of Westminster taken place the latter would
have become the brother-in-law of
Lord     Kundolph   Churchill's    widow.

"One of the old slang' phrases of the
stage." said Muggles. who used to be
u good actor, to a New York Sun
reporter, "was to 'pong.' This
means, or used to menu, using; your
own language ��� that is. playing a
part without cues of the proper lines,
relying only upon the knowledge of
the play to carry you through. Years
ago on the road there used to be some
highly ludicrous situations iu consequence of il new play being' produced
in a hurry. The stngc manager, bow-
ever.had a wonderful genius for patch
ing up a hitch. When circumstances
were necessary he would lower a front
scene nnd tell the low comedian nnd
chambermaid to go on and 'keep it
up.' and while they did so he would
arrange bow the play had lo be continued.
