little trouble In reaching shore, possessed as they are of every convenience for travel upon the Ice, including ilugs
The department received a message
from Dr. Anderson, on board the
Alaska, near Circle, Alaska, date as
late as Nov. 10 last. Dr. Anderson is
In charge of Uie southern party of

The telegram  was sent by carrier
to  Circle.  Alaska    and    telegraphed
from there.    The department haa re

Efforts Will Be Made to Secure Renegades by Peaceful Means.
Washington, Nov. 18.���In tbe hope
that the excited K'nvajo Indians wbo
are now defying tbe government authorities at Beautiful mountain, New
Mexico, may be Induced to yield
peaceably and surrender the eight
renegades sought to be arrested, the
war department today ordered General
Hugh L. Scott, commanding the second cavalry brigade at Fort Bliss,
Texas, to proceed In haste to the
Navajo agency to confer witb the Indian chiefs.
General Scott is singularly influential with tbe Navajos, whose
language he speaks. He always has
been regarded by them as tbeir best
friend and it Is believed he will be
able to placate them.
The general's Instructions are to
confer with Major McLaughlin, tbe
Indian agent, before beginning his
conference. To back his mission witb
a show of force, orders were sent to
Fort Robinson, Neb., to entrain and
dispatch to the Navajo agency a full
squadron of the Twelfth cavalry to
serve as General Scott's escort.

"The same arguments have been
msde against the investigation on the
floor of this convention aa were mads
against tbe Weat Virginia investigation by representatives of the Cltlxens'
Alliance, the Manufacturers' association and the representatives of the
coal companies. It sounds strange to

society in the past, there has been a warning sounded and
unless it is heeded the big annual fair in New Westminster, the fair that has done more to raise the standard of
British Columbia products than any other similar organization, will find itself warming a back bench instead of
polishing the upholstered seat up front.
Allowing for the bombastic broadsides which accompanied the oratorical volleying in Vancouver the other evening anent the Terminal City's show being the second best
in Canada���which everybody knows it isn't���there was
displayed at the annual meeting of the Vancouver association a determination that spells earnest work in preparing future fairs there in an effort to wipe out danger- jket'at
ous rivals, and, since the Royal City event at present'
stands at the top of the tree, it is only natural to suppose
that the annual show here is the principal target aimed at
by the fair people along the shores of Burrard Inlet.
In this fair business it is a case of the survival of the
fittest and by fittest is meant the show that draws the
crowds. That's a point nobody will dispute, for crowds
mean money and cash means big prizes, which are the
things the exhibitors are after.
To begin with, there isn't an exhibition west of Toronto that puts up an agricultural and horticultural display that can commence to compare with the one here; with 3,000 pounds

750,000 pounds of halibut arrived at
Seattle from Alaska banks yesterday
and the day hefore and prices which
had been ranging from 7 to 9 cents,
immediately hit the skids for lower
levels. Not since rough weather set
in, about a month ago, making fishing
in the north a rather ticklish proposition, has such a large amount of
halibut been dumped on the local mar-
one time.
The arrivals included the steamship Chicago of the Chlopeck Klsh

steamship Independent, of the Weiding & Independent Fisheries company,
with 210,000 pounds! the steamship
Starr of the San Juan FiBh and Packing company, with 40,000 pounds: the
steamship Northland, of the Northland Steamship company, with 245,-

Hockey League  Liable to Have Hard
Road Unlet-*; Clubs Pull Together.
The time has arrived when the
members of the different hockey clubs
comprising the local league must pull
together if the present schedule is to
be fought out this winter without nny
changes being  made.
Tho present financial stringency,
the arrangement with the Arena people and the consequent heavy drain
on the finance* of each club before
even a cent can be brought ln from
gate receipts, all of these'make It absolutely necessary for everybody to
pull together.
The Sapperton-Whlte Rock aggre*
gatlon dropped somewhere between
fit) nnd |40 on thetr dance held recently -ifhne the support accorded the
Moose on Thanksgiving night was
barely enough to pay even for the
hall. Such Instances are disheartening to the clubs and already there ts
some talk of one at least of the clubs
pulling up stakes which would disrupt the league to such an extent
thst thc schedule would probably have
to be rebuilt
Let everybody pull together for the
amateurs, lf New Westminster Is ever
to be placed on the map as far as an
Allan cup team le concerned, tbe time
to start matters Is right now. If all
the members of the four clubs would
pull together on the street and fight
out their battles on the Ice there would
be no necessity for such sn appeal.

Toronlo, Nov. 18.- When Cecil Irwin

which baa ever been perpetrated In

up a bogus will in which lie and his
father were named as executors.    Under the tiniis nf lhis will he was ben-
etleiary to the extent of $ir,.(i(iii in
the Shape of real estate throughout
the city, Irwin then drew up an affidavit, it is claimed, by which his father withdrew his powers as executor,
leaving Irwin with the power to administer tlie estate. With these documents he went io the trust company
and explained to them that owing to
the fact thai In* was not conversant
with business methods lie would like
(hem to handle the estate fnr hlm.
After viewing tin* documents that
Irwin presented to ihem they accepted the administration of the estate.
Shortly alter !h,'y had done so    Irwin
asked if he could obtain $3,000, as lie
was badly in need of funds The trust
company acceded to liis request   A
few duys afterward he again asked fori
money,   obtaining   tn'in.     When   this

Irwin's requests for money had been
too frequent, and the trust company
became suspicious.    They    examined

Inn    rtlfifrent    1   uses    which     Irwin '
claimed his mother owned. They then
learned that they had been swindled,
A warrant was asked for Irwin's ar-
rust, and when Ma answered a call to
the company's office Saturday afternoon tiie police were waiting for him,
Irwin wuh released on $5,000 furnished by his father. It Is said that he
admitted lu the police when placed
under arrest thai both will and uffl-
davit had been forged.
West ls Pull of Stories of Brave
A liripht youpa woman in the newer
pnrt of 13ritish Columbia is the heroine
of n bear story that is quite true. Bhe
is a farmer'h daughter, and one uf her
daily duties is to milk the cows. Ons
evening not long figo she was so en-
gaped when a bear suddenly came out
of the bush a few feet nwny from her.
Tho bucket was partly lllled with rich
Jersey'milk, but the girl left it on the
ground and beat a hasty retreat, which
wns precisely what Bruin wanted. With
much relish he emptied the bucket, and
then ambled away.
The next evening the milkmaid was
hotter prepared, and when she went
to tho pasture she carried the bucket
in one hand nud in the other a shotgun, which she leaned ngninst a tree;
this because she looked for a return
visit of the milk-loving bear. She
was not disappointed. The pail was
marly filled this time when Bruin
appeared, coining toward her in a
very evident hurry. The girl repeated
her flight of the evening before, and
the bear again mnde up to thc bucket.
When his head wus comfortably into
tho milk, the gun, loaded with number
���ix shot, was very precisely aimed,
snd a second or two later Bruin lay
The point of this story is that the
women who live in thc frontier country have need of keeping their wits
about them. And, as a matter of fact,
most of them do. Many talcs are told
of the bravery, fortitude, and remarkable endurance of woman settlers in the remote places nf the West
and North, some oi whom have also
proved themselves the possessors of
exceptional ability and business keenness.
Thus thero is an honor roll nf at least
a half-dozen women in Alaska wkc
played the part of mining prospector
so well that they made good stakes and
won fame and fortune. They were, in,
the theory nnd practice of placer min-1
ing as any man in the North, and
proved it by results. It ia told of one
of these venturesome six that nncc, to
save her husband's bank at Nome from
failure, she traveled three hundred
miles in midwinter, alone and by dog
team, carrying a sulistnntinl clean up
of gold nuggets from her own holdings.
By day and night, through snow and
buzzard] she kept to the trnil, and:
reached Nome, with her golden relief,'.
just in time to avert the threaten,',1 dis .
Another   woman,   not  a  gold hunter.
mushed   1,460  miles  from   Kampart  u
Whitchoise, in the Yukon.    She did  it;
alone, too, and in the dead of a deadly
winter.     With   her   train   of   dogs   she*
made an average of twenty-five miles a
day. and  on  one or  two days covered ,
Uyrtv live miles.    That is good travel-
rag on tin* winter trail, even f>*r n man,
iiii,1 especially good for u wuman when j
for the greater part of the way she ran.:
not rode, holding only by her hands to
thc bars of the dog-sleigh.    For en some'
days it  was too cold to ride; fifty and
sixty   and   seventy   below   zero,   which;
means that one must keep moving.
Just like a man. this woman musber
rode and tramped, sometimes breaking
a   wav   ahead   for   the  dogs   when   she
zero fog   was   too   dense   for   them   to

; Curious Methods of faring For Spanish  Fighting  Bui's-
Whatever one's views ma: " ln
j regard to bull fighting there Is one
feature of the national sport of
Spain wblch is particularly Interesting to the visitor and sightseer.
, The bulls for the arena nro usually
kept in large paddocks, wild and unfettered, for, as Sir Albert Kolllt.
who has visited ono of these paddocks near Seville, says, "The a -
nulls know nothing of ropes or chains
during lifetime."
It ls a dangerous business, how-
' ever, entering these paddocks. Sir
Albert stood some fifty paces from
] tho bullB and In hiB Interesting let-
5 tr r describing the scene, published In
l Country Life, says, "We entered with
' our lives In our hands."
The  bulls,   howciver,  nro  kept   In
j order   by   a  cordon   of   tame   oxen,
i wblch, lf a bull attempts to escape, at
! once   prevents   lt   doing   so,   acting
skillfully and effectively as a species
: of bovine police.    "The night before
1 the spectacle In the bull ring at Seville," to quote Sir Albert, "the bulls
are  driven,  still quite at  large,  by
picadors along the boulevards. Inter-
; mixed with the oxen and  restrained
! only by them.  On my asking If there
: must not he danger to the puMlo using the boulevard, the reply was that
' occuflonally a bull might 1 .de in the
: bashes of the central gar lens and fall
foul of a workman In the morning,
: but such  Incidents did not  seem  to
i be regarded as mntterR of much Importance compared with the popular-
1 Itr of the national amusement.     At
times   mauy  of   the   aristocracy   and
others of both  sexes ride on  horseback In advance of the bulls, which
ls regarded as fine, hut  rather dangerous sport.
"When at or noar midnight the
bulls thus enter the bull ring, the
scene is one of great turmoil, noise
. and excitement. In rush the driven
animals, bulls and oxen, belter skelter, a motley crowd of men and
beasts, a veritable pandemonium. The
last scene is most interesting of all.
Stables with open doors encompass
the arena, ln front of each of which
is a sliding door and ;.: ths back a
lighted lantern. These lanterns the
bull makes for one af!>*r another,
s:"*iKlilng then and extinguishing the
lights, and as each light is observed
bv an attendant to !"��� put out, he
slips down the door of the stable and
the bull ls thus encaged and ready
for the Spanish holiday of the morrow. Successively the lU'ht dis-
rppear. and when all am out and the
doors of the stables closed the police
oxen are driven out of tlie bull rine
to return to their more peaceful pad-
doc'-s and to render similar service
to other bulls and other devotees of

I'aris, Nov. S. A man alleged to be
"the king of hotel thieves" was arrested In I'aris.
| Tho man-grey bearded, of excellent appearance, fifty-two years of
age. and named Urhaln Thaust Is
stated to have been sought for continuously by the police since June,
1891, Kor the greater part of that
time lie has been living In a well furnished villa at Hois Colombes. a suburb of I'aris, with his wife and four
children, who believed that their father was a jewel broker In the cily.
His earnings as an hotel thief are ul-
leged to have reached between $6,01:0
and  $7,50(1 a year.
In June last the police had reason to
believe that lhe suburban jewel broker   was  a  French   "Raffles"  wauled

About two o'clock in llm morning a
noise was heard outside t le door of
one of the detectives' rooms, and the
officer in tnd began to snnm loudly.
Soon the door was gently tried and a
tiny ray of llghl was seen through the

scared the thief, for no more was
heard at the door for half an hour.

of a comiiillteu appointed In Aprll,

examining and coimldering the whole
of the evidence relating tot he taetles

that we have had to wait. 108 years

a very few years the idea became fix

tactical genius which was Nelson's unrivalled gift. Nuw. if this were really the eaae, it would Involve lhe total I
negation of ail tactical principle and
point to the sheer futility of all tactical study. ThiB ia no mere academic
consideration. Naval officers, Ini-!
tnersed In praotlcal concerns, are far
too prone to say; Why should he both-

teted upon It, hut went at the enemy
anyhow Why one of his own ofllcers
said, 'We went dowu In no order, but
each man to take his bird.' Tactics
are a mere fad of the schools ' lf such

Montreal, Nov. 18.-Flrmln Jasmin,

The action was brought by thc officials of the Society tor the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, represented by Charles O. Ogden of Surveyor,

It was claimed by tbe prosecution
that the operatlona were performed
on October 30 and that tbo oowa were
loft In the field all day.
Mr. Jasmin admitted that the tails
had been docked, bat claimed It waa
for sanitary reasons. He said that
alnce there was a general demand for
pure milk It was a common precautionary operation among th efarmera
and milk men of St Laurent.
Mr. Ogden, tor ttie prosecution,
claimed that the cutting of cows tails
waa a cruel and unnecessary measure.
He said he did not seek to have the
