the body or clothing of Alexander
Zlkanieff, a wealthy Itussian contractor cf Vancouver who, the provincial police believe, was done to
death ln the neighboring municipality
some time In November. 1512.
It ls true there are two witnesses
who swear tbat they saw the body
of Zlkanieff, the face and head covered with blood and dirt, sewn up In
a long canvas bag as though ready
for burial or throwing into the lake,
and that grouped around that bag
were four men, one of whom, Klushka

Magistrate J. Stilwoll Clute for the
murder of the missing man. But

police are asking.
Different Factions. .
The trial is rousing much interest
in the Itussian colony. The dead man
was well known; so is the one accused now ln prison. The brother of
the dead man is diligently aiding ln
running to earth those who are believed to be responsible for the supposed murder, while a second Zabieff
is as firmly lighting for the life of his
brother in the dock. Around each
of these is grouped a faction of their
countrymen and between them stand
Chief Constable Smith and his aids
representing the law.
At the preliminary hearing, which
will be continued today, J. K. Grant

have happened, and among them it
is recorded that the lapse of time
has resulted In a serious lapse of
memory on the part of the pair who
accidentally stumbled upon the body
of  Alexander  Zlkanieff.
Saw His Body.
All that Kupoff and Myzkoff would
say on ihe staud yesterday was that
they had seen Zikaniefrs body and
that the face was blood stained and
muddy, but beyond that tbey would
not go. They would not repeat what
it is said they told Chief Provincial
Constable Smith, of Vancouver, that
thev bad examined the dead man's
head and that In the back.of the head
and the neck were two bullet holes,
while across the forehead was another wound. These things the two
crown -witnesses would not tell on
oath yesterday, as they are said to
hav* told them freely to the police
some while back and it was signifl
cant that during the giving of the
evidence which was drawn fmm their
reluctant lips they glanced anxiously

Toronto, Feb. 25.*���A sensation was
sprung in the Ontario legislature late
this afternoon when Gustave Aven-
turel, M.P.P. for Prescott, and son of
the late speaker, charged that an alliance existed between the license
commission and the liquor men in his
county. '
G, \\. Ferguson, member for Gren~
vllle, iii rebutting the charges, startled
the houseTjy reading a letter addressed by Mr. Aventurel to the Ontario license and allied trades association.
Mtj. Avfenturel's letter was to the effect that he toad always been a true
friend of the association and was
prepared to vote against his leader, R.
K, Jtftwell, on the question of abolishing the bar. -He states that he was a
poor man, luring only upon his- small
sessional allowance and expected the
association would see its way to helping him along by paying at least ten
thousand, dollars, payable $3000 down
and tbe balance In instalments. For
., that salary be was prepared to be the
defender of the association and introduce ln the legislature any amendments to the government measures to
restrict the liquor traffic. He added
that he would sign any. agreement the
board of the association������* would require to fight for the liquor Interests
in the legislature.
In conclusion Mr. Ferguson said that

This information was received with
particular interest   because   Senator
Bristow and others in congress have
charged that agitation in favor of repealing the section ot the canal act
giving free tolls to American vessels
was in the interest of the great Canadian railway and steamship corporations.    It has heen suggested In the
debates, however, that the transcontinental roads opposed the free tolls provision not so much on account of the
advantages   to  American  ships  over
those of other nations, but because of

The old saw to the effect that the meadow in the distance looks, like better grazing ground than the one under
your feet, coupled with the reports which, for two successive years, have been coming up from California concerning ruinous rainfalls and freeze-ups, leads the ordinary stay-at-home British Columbian to the belief that
this old province isn't such a bad spot after all.
Despite the fact that a prominent clerical gentleman,
who should have known better, told an English audience
the other day that there were only three months of the
year at all enjoyable in the Canadian west, there are those
in British Columbia who believe that, taken year in and
year out, this climate has the best of them beaten as a
health producer.
Last year you, or some of your friends, went to California for the winter months and what kind of a greeting
did the far-famed weather man down there hand out?
Raw, cold winds and frost that ruined the orange crop
from one end of the country to the other. This year you.
or some of your friends, determined to try the experiment
again and once more the weather man in the Golden Gate
state has risen to the occasion with the finest kind of a
deluge that has soaked the country from top to bottom

Dinner Guests' Idea of a Really
Beautiful Woman.
What Fur and What For Ar* ths Two
Most Timely Questions Apropos of
the Rainbow Hued Pelts of tho Season���Looked Upon at First as ��� Joke.
Dear Elsie���The other evening Dick
end your humble scribe were guests at
a very highbrow dinner, and, between
you and me, we were bored to the last
gasp of extinction until some other
frivolous creature broke up the conversational solidity by asking the table
at large, "Have you ever seen a beautiful woman?"
"Why, women are the living embodiment of all the best ln urt!" Dick
snickered audibly at this, thinking, the
wretch, of the feminine art one sees
with painted and plastered faces on
Broadway bere In New York.
"There's no such thing as beauty,"
flashed the cynic, with the unlovely
sneer with which he cloaks the kindest henrt. In reply to the above sentl-
nieiital definition.
A perfect battle of protest stopped
tbe cynic, every one of us speaking nt
once except the highest browed lady,
who smiled a decorous smile as though
to disarm any male creature of the
absurd Impression that be might take
a particle of the word "beauty" to himself.
"Beauty ls comparative," contlnned
the cynic, undaunted, "which proves
that It Is nonexistent You see, if
there were only one woman on earth
she might either be exquisitely lovely
or a perfect fright It would be all
the same. You couldn't label her because tbe standard isn't tixed. What
you cull beauty is a matter uf persoual
taste and���well, and climate. In Egypt,
for Instance, the Arabs hail a fat woman as rapturously lovely. In Europe
she Is considered a freak. If she ls fat
enough she cuu earn her living lu a
sideshow, whereas in some countries
it would enable her to qualify for
queenly state."
"A woman's beauty is not nn affnlt
of color or line," indignantly Interrupted the philosopher, while we gaspingly
absorbed the cynic's speech. "Wheu I
mn asked about a woman's beauty I
feel Inclined to quote tbe famous dictum, 'Wait and see.' Tbe beauty's
Im ir may be red or black, ber eyes
blue or gray���It's all the same. But
If you should be privileged to bo ucai
her day after day und feel something
spiritual lu her smile, something restful and vivid in her presence; if yout
vitality Is renewed by talking to her
and a tine, strong courage to meet life
comes to you through her Influence,
you may know that that woman is
very, very lovely."   So said we all.
Talking of dinner reminds me of tea,
or, rather, teapots. Irish nud still
more Irish, Isn't it? Well, tbe impression I am trying to convey is that
in telling you ubout the dinner conversation reminded me of a teapot���
a novel sleeping teapot���1 saw at a
friend's house while partaking with
ber of the cheering cup. This pot,
which ls made of artistic earthenware,
bas nn earthenware sieve across half
of tbe neck of the pot Tea leaves are
placed on the sieve and boiling water
poured in the lower part Tben the
teapot is turned ou Its side, which allows the boiling water to reach the
leaves, but docs not admit of the
leaves .straying Into the teapot When
sufficiently drawn tbe teapot Is "waked
up" to nn upright position nnd the tea
You see, dear, making tea ln this
way one does not have to bother with
any mussy "ball" or strainer. Tbe teapot ls quite inexpensive and deserves
to be better known to the housewife.
You scorned the idea of rainbow
bued furs when I wrote you ifbout
them not long ago. but If you could
see a perfectly darling "eggplant"
broadcloth frock of mine trimmed
with moleskin dyed a beautiful harmonizing shade of mauve, with some
ecru lace as a relieving tint, you would
fall ii victim to this absurd craze.
Paul I'olret. who started the pelt Innovation, must have done It to have
his little Joke. Yet all the fashionable
dressmakers lime taken It lip seriously. Polrot went pretty "fur." but tbey
lire going "further," as 'twere. The
most violent of the dyed skins nre In
canary tuned collar and cuff sets of
while (?) fox on white evening wraps
and the new long coats of emerald
preen moleskin. A purchase of tbe
latter would simply menn the exchange of long green for long green
Pnrgfve ine this, dear; It IS awful.
One really must have a touch of fur
on everything this winter to be smart
Even high shoes and the new Russian
bonis to wear with slit skirts have
bands of fur at the top. One, too,
must have among her millinery at
least one fur trimmed or all fur hat.
while one's negligees and evening
frocks have a peltry trimming, and I
presume In n few weeks we'll have
our nighties adorned with fur.
Tell me In your next letter what
you'll select for tho trimming of your
robe de null If worse comes to the
worst.   Devotedly, MABEL,

HARD TIMES! A prominent advertiser who spends a fortune every
year in publicity has established a
significant rule. Whenever he notices a slowing up of business he increases
his advertising. This is the reason: "When
business is booming it is unnecessary to
fight for it���it comes of itself; but when
business is slow I insist on having my share
of it, and the easiest way to get it is by calling attention to my goods. I do not wait for
hard times. I scent them in the distance,
and before anybody else gets busy I make
my contracts for advertising on a big scale
and get my orders in before my competitors
know what I am doing." The logic and common sense of the attitude of this gentleman

West Coast Town Boiling Over With1
Excitement After Seeing Some
Pay Dirt.
Port Alberni, Feb. 25.���Thla town
is all excitement over the new gold
strike somewhere near Ucluelet, 40
miles from here at the head of the
canal. Mr. Wilkinson of the Royal
bank, brought up some dirt that went
?10 to the pan. It was so rich that
some of the old sourdoughs would
hardly believe It, so they took a
sample to the local jeweler. He picked out the largest pieces, one aa large
as a pea, hammered them out and
gave it the acid test. Then the ex- j
citement commenced. The hardware
men sold all the gold pans���and frying
pans���and the supply of shovels in
very low. Gasoline boats were chartered, some not even waiting to outfit.
Iluslness men, clerks, laborers, are
just reaking their necks to get down
to Ucluelet. As they have not got
back yet it is impossible to give further details at present
The Kalappa mine, situated near
Usluelet, has just completed ore bins
at a cost of $6000. Last month they
shipped 1000 tons of ore averaging $22
per ton. They have 500 feet of backs
and 2000 tons of ore blocked out whierh
they are now hard at work stoplng
out. This is going to make a first
class mine. It looks like a true fis-
I sure vein. The big English syndicate
is busy building a trail and wagon
road to the Ptarmigan mine.

Maduna, on whose ranch near Spalding Sheriff Harry Lydon some time
ago found 15 dead horses from starvation, was arrested today upon his arrival in Lewiaton and pleaded guilty
before Judge Erb to a charge of malicious mischief. It was charged that
be failed to provide food for the animals left in his charge after promising
to do so. Judge Erb placed Maduna
under |500 bends which he was unable to furnish and he is now in the
county jail.
Ira McPeak of Clarkia, Idaho, who
p'.aced 44 of his own pack horses and
four of another party in Maduna's
field, was a strong witness against
Maduna. McPeak testified that Maduna was to tike care of the horses
and furnish them feed if needed, McPeak to pay a stipulated sum for this
attention. Of the 48 horses placed in
the field by McPeak. 20 starved to
death and three are missing.

things; and that brought me plump back to my own job of advertising.

Sport Comment
The action of the young men of St.
Andrew's Presbyterian church in deciding to organize an athletic association with the ultimate view of having
.t church ut'.iletic league /formed in
the city should bring excellent results if such work in other cities is
any criterion. While the class of baseball cannot be expected to reach the
par maintained by the city league nor
can the promoters hope to set such a
pace in basketball as that maintained
by the regular city league, the fact remains that more young men will take
up athletics should the proposed organization be carried out. In this
present day pace the public ar'i much
too prone to become spectators at the
orf to acquuint that young man of his
good fortune.
North learned of his windfall in
Switzerland, whither he had followed
the Bonds, in company with Arthur
Merrit, a friend cf his, If it hadn't
been tbat North was desperately
afraid Helen would marry a duke de
spite all his efforts, he probably
wouldn't have listened to ihe minister
for a moment. As it was, he decided
that becoming a king waa the simplest possible way of winning Helen.
North was crowned and discovered
that a monarch's life was a distinct
bore. He wa9 so hedged about with
conventions that he could hardly
breathe. But he won his reward for
all the discomforts when the Bonds
were presented at court. The utter
confusion of Mrs. Bond was distinctly-
grat'fying. *
The affairs in Balkla speedily became in a very troubled condition.
After the revolutionists had made a
couple of attempts on hia life, North
learned the true reasons for their
discontent and sympathized with
them. Arthur Merritt fell in love with
the Princess Senla, whom the prime
minister had decreed must marry
North for political reasons.
So North decided to clear matters
up. He gave Senia to Merritt, declared himself In favor of a republic,
abdicated and sailed fcr America
with  Helen.

On the subject of Canadian fish in

last issue:
The experiment of Introducing frozen halibut from the Canadian Pacific
coast on the Grimsby market and
thence into the markets of the kingdom, has proved so successful that by
the time the second consignment was
due to arrive the first delivery had
all been disposed of and orders were
in hand for more. Naturally there

Popular Belief* Which Have Sprung

Fixed Ideas, Yet Have No Foundation In Legislative Enactment*.
Many people have the idea tbat if
oue owes a bill and goes to his debtor
and tells him tbat he ls willing to pay
and then offers some trifling sum on
account, say $1 or even less per -week
or mouth, the creditor Is obliged to
take It, utterly regnrdless of the fact
that if creditors were obliged to receive payment in that way It would
put most of them out of business In a
very short period.
There is no such law.
In the minds of very many people,
especially ln the country districts,
there ls unother firmly fixed Idea tbat
If one person strikes another first the
person assaulted may then all but

There Is no such law.
A person assaulted has the right to
defeud himself, but he may not use
any more force than necessary to do
that To use more than necessary
force completely turns the tables, and
the assaulted becomes the aggressor

Toronto. Feb. 25.���Alleging that his
two daughters were punished, imprisoned, improperly fed, and permanently
injured and disfigured at the Mohawk
institution or school near Brantford,
George W. Miller is suing Superintendent A. Nelles Ashton for $5000 damages, and he also seeks at Osgoode
Hall an order to change the place of
trial from Brantford to Simcoe.
Miller says that Ashton has a large
family connection and that he is related to W. F. Cockshutt, M.P., who,
also is a member of one of the oldest
and best known families. Under these
circumstances, according to Miller,
an Indian could not get a fair trial in
Brant county.
Miller alleges that Ruth and Hazel
Miller were assaulted and punished ln
August last, year, by having their hair
cut off, thus sustaining injury and
disfigurement. In the same month
Miller says Ruth was imprisoned in a
dungeon and served with bread and
water for three days, and Hazel was
confined to a room on the same diet.
He charges, too, that Ruth was cruelly
whipped on the bare back. Miller
complains of stale food, separated milk
wormy oatmeal and spoiled meat.
Miller says Asliton did these things
personally or instructed others to do
Ashton In his statement of defence
denies the assault, but says that the
defendants attempted to escape more
than once, besides committing other
acts against the regulations. If any
punishment was meted out it waa -in
pursuance of the regulations to prevent escape, and for their own good.

there was $100,000 in the estimates for
