Situation Arising Out of Resignation of Officers Grows
More Intense���General French Denies He Has Withdrawn Resignation���General Ian Hamilton May Succeed to Post.
Would-Be Assasln  Fires    on    Former
President of Nicaragua.
Madrid, March 29.���A dispatch received hero from Barcelona says an
attempt was made today to assassinate
Jose E. Santos Zelaya, former president of Nicaragua, at Casa Horres,
where Zelaya resides.
A man who said his name was Rosas and who declared that he was a
Nicaraguan, entered the residence of
Zelaya, drew a revolver and fired at
the astonished ex-president. Zelaya
Was not hit by the bullet.
Rosas was immediately overpowered
and arrested. He said that Zelaya,
when president of Nicaragua, was responsible for the death of his uncle
and ihat he had been pursuing him
ever since In order to avenge his dead
London, Marcli 2ft. The ceisis that
has been threatening all last week
both In and out of parliament is by
no means over and the outlook today
is blacker than ever. Oeneral Sir
John French in an Interview VI th the
Daily Mall denicB that he has withdrawn his resignation and gave no
Indication of doing so. Premier As-
iiuith will make a definite announcement in the house of commons tomorrow afternoon following a meeting of
the cabinet which will be held during
Ihe morning. The Unionist press still
claims that Oenerals French and
Evert will persist in their demands
to resign while the Daily Chronicle
is of the same opinion. The Daily
Express comes out with the announce-
im eit that the post to be vacated by
Oeneral French will be given to Gen-
I eral Ian Hamilton, inspector general of
; overseas forces.
Should   Oeneral   French   persist   tn
i resigning it  is thought that dissatisfaction   among   the  army   will   again
j crop  up and  will  probably  mean  the
I supplanting of Col. Seely as secretary
of war.
The court  Is scheduled to move to

, facts of the amazing incidents of the
past week.
Party organs, in view of the possibility (,f an early election are making
capital of the Curragh resignations by

Cornea of Pifl's Bye Used to Restore
the Sight of Little David
Baltimore,    Md.,    March 2ft.���Sight
hai   been   given   tO   the   left     eye     of
David  Kane, nine months old  son of
Mr. and Mrs. Kane, of Pittsburg, Pa., i
after the grafting of the cornea of a i
pig's  eye.  to  the  child's eyeball,  ac- j
cording to a statement  of physicians '
today at a hospital.
Certain   tests,   they   assert,   have i
brought out this fact without a doubt. I
When the bandage was removed from 1
the  eye   It  was  said   that  the  child
followed    the    sourse    of    a    lighted
candle, which was moved in front of
blm.    Another tesi   thai   brings  out
the   tact   more   clearly   is   that   the !
child now winks hi.* eyelid if a linger I
or  a small  object  is  waved  close  to
the eye.
The disease from which little David
has been a sufferer since he was
three months old is known as staphyloma of the cornea. The operation
was performed last Monday and the
cornea Of the pig's eye was used be-1
cause it is said it more closely re-
Bembles the human cornea than that j
of any ether animal.
Boston, Mass., March 29;���Justice
Benjamin Russell, of the supreme
court of Nova Scotia, and Professor
Jay William Hudson, of the University of Missouri, discussed international peace ai a meeting of the
state branch of the American School
i f Peace league yesterday.
Justice Russell spoke of "The
really imaginary line" dividing the
I'nited States and Canada aud de-
<*lai-��*el that during the past century
there had developed between England
and the* I'nited States, clashing In-
I.n sis. which had European powers
been the* interested principals, would
have led inevitably to war.
Pr lessor Hudson said; "The
change in public opinion in regard to
the necessity for war is no where
better exemplified than in the policy
< r iin* tf. S. toward Mexico, a policy
that makes for peace, put forward in
a way that public opinion would not
have sanctioned twenty years ago."

Incensed Bandit Kills
Two Moneyless Men
HiQr/vayman   Failing  to  Secure   Loot
Murders One and Fatally Injures
Other Victim.
Mount Vernon, Wash.. March 2ft. -
A man believed to be diaries Hopkins, known as the "tattooed bandit."
because of the words "true love" tot-
tooed across his hands, killed Tony
Gerb and shot and probably fatally
wounded John Freeman, loggers, two
miles north of McMurray, 15 miles
southeast of here last night.
.Freeman and Gerb wen* walking
along the railroad tracks when the
high vny man halted them and demand
ed their money. Neither had any and
nil the robber obtained was a razor
cat ried by Gerb. Incensed because of
his failure to obtain loot the bandit
drove the two men into a slough 800
yards from the track.
"1 guess I'll get rid of you fellows
right now," Freeman said the bandit
told him and then hit Gerb over the
head with his pistol, killing him instantly. The blow broke the pistol
but the bandit produced another and
shot Freeman through the neck, leaving him for dead.
Freeman managed to crawl into Mc
Murray early today, where he gave
the alarm and was taken to a hospital. He is not expected to live. The
body of Gerb was found in the slough.
A skirmish is expected in the Hurnaby council tonight when the report
of the committee appointed to redistribute the present six wards on a
more equal basis, will make a report.
The present plan is to create three
wards in North Burnaby and three
in the south which if passed would
mean the breaking up of the present
boundaries, The present constitution
gives tiie south the majority as Councillors MacDonald and Fau-Vel are
looked upon as representatives of the
section lying north of Burnaby lake, j
According to reports everything
along this line of redistribution is j
agreeable to the reeve and council
with the exception of Councillor
Rose, of ward two. and Councillor
Allen, cf ward three, who after a
peek at the proposed plan, see vision)
of representing an entirely new dis-
j trict and population. These two
! gentlemen are likely to raise objec-
j tions at tonight's meeting.
A discussion on a new traffic regulation  bylaw  compiled   by   Municipal
Engineer   Macpherson   is   also  slaied
I for tonight.
School Administration.
At a conference between Reeve
1 Fraser and Councillor Rose represent
| ing the council and Chairman Herd
and Trustee Burnes representing the
school board, held in the mJRlicipal
hall on Saturday morning th*e question of the school board's bookkeeping being taken over by the municipal hall staff was discussed. While
both sides appeared to be agreeable
to the change, a quettion arose as
to whether such action was legal un
der the school act. Advice from the
provincial department at Victoria will
be sought before anything definite
is done in the matter.
Another point taken up was that
of school finances hdA the where
abcuts cf the elusive $40,0ii0 which
was reported as missing during the
recent school trustee elecilon campaign. All trace of this sum had
been lost, according to the trustees,
but eefter the situation had been gone
over by Chairman of Finance Hose.
Messrs. Herd and Burnes appeared
Estimates Reduced.
It was discovered, tu the edification
of the latter, however, that the estimate available fcr use by the school
board will be considerably less than
at firs* thought. This is explained by
Reeve Fraser and Councillor Rose by
the fact that In the transaction with
Spltzer, Rorick & Co., the school
bands were hypothecated in the same
manner as were the other bond?. A
shrinkage will occur to some extent,
the actual amount not being known
until the treasury certificates are
wipi d out and the bonds sold. To
make up this shrinkage the council
has decided to distribute the amount
over all the bonds hypothicated and
thus prevent a large sum being taken
from current revenue two or three
years hence, which would undoubtedly result in the large increase in the
tax rate. The latter the council is
anxious lo obviate and towards this
end lhe school board will probably
have to accede to the necessity of allowing a certain percentage of ihe
funds available to be kept in reserve.

Juarez, Mex., March 2ft An official |
message from the front tonight says I
that the fighting is still going on [
fcr the possession of Torreon.
The telegram  says that' the rebels I
now   hold   all   positions    except    the
main  barracks and  two smaller  bar- i
racks.    In the last  twenty-four hours!
it   Is  reported   that  Cen.   Villa    took j
Corro de la Cruz and the Torreon
Another telegram admits a rebel
loss iii the last six days of ftOO killed I
and wounded, and places the federal
loss at 2000. As there are already I
at Chihuahua 500 wounded, the re-
port of rebel losses is thought to have
been minimised. Among the rebel
wounded   is   General   Tomas   Crbina. I
P   is  said  that private aoldierB taken  prisoners  are  being taken    into
the rebel ranks, but their officers are
executed  unless  they  take  the  oath j
of allegiance to  the  Constitutionalist |
cause. All irregular troops in the fed-!
eral garrison are executed upon cap- !

Carranza at Juarez.
Juarez. Mex.. March 29.���General
Venustiano Carranza, first chief of
the revolution was welcomed at Juarez today, ln the last two weeks the
general lias ridden horseback for
five hundred miles and In the last
two mouths he has travelled 2000
miles in the same way.
He looked the picture of health and
vigor, a living contradiction to stories that he was feeble and that he
had constant recourse io stimulants
in order to bear up, and other reports
of a similar nature. His appearance
| also branded many lithographs of
him as libels, for they made him appear  old  and   rather  thin.
All afternoon automobiles and carriages streamed out the road past I
tiie race track and ajeng the railroad I
io anticipate his arrival. The road j
held a straggling procession -of these
vehicles, bicycles, saddle horses and
men, women and children In gala attire, each with a bit of the national
red, white and green.
Villa's Chief.
General Manuel ChftO, military governor of the state of Chihuahua, who
came here for the purpose of formally welcoming the jefe suprema, galloped with his staff to a point three
miles south Of tbe city. Here General Carranza and his staff and the reception committee met and there ensued a long wnit for the troops train
bringing the horses and men of Car-
ranza'8 own army.
Visitors were eager to catch a

Huerta Not President
He added that he had no occasion

no act or contract cf the Huerta government would be recognized should
the revolutionists succeed in capturing  Mexico City.
"Huerta is not president of Mexico
and none of his acts can be legal,
and therefore none of them can be

When the newspaper men were introduced to General Carranza, he
smiled and said:
"Well. I suppose ycu want me to

London March 29--The past week's
business on the stock exchange,is
estimated to have been the smallest
since the dark days of the Balkan
war. The strong undertone has not
disappeared, but the immediate outlook is so confused that optimism is
slow in reviving. The markets on

who attended the university boat race

French Deputies Resign.
Paris, March 29.���Two members of
the committee of the chamber of deputies which is investigating the fto-
chette affair resigned yesterday. They
were Georges Bery and Jules la Mays,
who took the ground that a majority
of the members of the committee were
being influenced to too great an ex-
i temt by politicians. The resignations
of the two deputies were presented at

Collingwood,  Ont.^ March  29.���The
scrutiny of  the  ballots  cast for and
against  the  bylaw  to  guarantee the
bonds of the Imperial Steel and Wire
j company to the extent of $100,000 developed  a sensation  yesterday  when
Harry Storey, a deputy returning officer, testified that the night previous
to the vote being taken he was handed 30 ballots by T. E.  McKin. an insurance agent, the ballots being marked in favor of the bylaw.   Storey said
he put these marked ballots in an envelop and  handed them to a friend.
They were produced in court, and were
seen to be similar to the official ballot.    McKin denied the allegation and
stated that he had not seen the ballots   before.    Representatives  of  the
Enterprise Printing company, printers
of the official ballots, could not throw
any light on the bogus ballot papers.
The   scrutiny   will   be   resumed   tomorrow afternoon.    So far there is a
net increase of one vote for the bylaw.

those sites. With the growth of ocean and transcontinental traffic through from this peninsula, there will be bound
to come conflict of authority, municipal councils fighting

accomplished without much heart-burning, and it does
not make the outcome any less sure. For this latter reason

The plaintiff testified that an alleged common law marriage between
herself and Ewald took place In St.
Louis in March. 1890. Prior to leaving St. Louis to take up her residence in an elaborate home bought
for her by Ewald, she lived in Wil*
liamspor:, Pa., Pittsburg, Washington
Chicago and Denver. The plaintiff
admitted she never was generally
known as Mrs. Ewald.
Although Ewald operated a large
iron foundry here for a score of
years, and accumulated several million dollars, he virtually was unknown  personally  in  this city.
He shunned even ordinary notice,
made only such acquaintances as his
business necessitated and took no
part in the city's affairs. He spent

A Huge Punch-Bowl.
A correspondent of Country Life
sends some particulars about an extraordinary punch brew which took
place on Oct. 25, 160i.
The biggest brew on record was
made at the house of the Rt. Hon.
Edward Russell, commander-in-chief
of His Majesty's Forces in'the Medi-.
terranean. A garden fountain, plac-'
ed where four walks met, was used ">
as a bowl, and in it the following ingredients  were poured: ���
Four hogsheads'of brandy, 25,000
lemons, twenty gallons of lime-juice,
1.300 cwt. of white Lisbon sugar, 5
pounds of grated nutmegs, 300 toasted biscuits, and one pipe of dry
mountain Malnga. Here, indeed, was
a punch-bowl worthy of the heroes of
lhe seventeenth century. A boat waa
specially built so that a boy might
row about in it and rtll the cups of
the assembled guests, which, accord-
ins to our authority, probably numbered more than 6,000 men.
Tbe  King's  Buttonholes.
His Majesty's taste In flowers ia
i rather different from that of his fath-
i er. King Edward went in almost entirely for gardenias, and every day
��� when he was In residence at Buck-
] Ingham Palace two or three perfect
! specimens were always placed in hi3
1 room for his use. He would wear
i one in the morning and tben change
j it for another in the evening.
! On the other hand. King George
1 loves variety. For evening: wear, of
course, a white flower is de rigueur.
and His Majesty patronizes either a
| small white rose, a gardenia, or eveu
| a dainty pheasant-eyed narcisBUB.
I For morning and afternoon we^r be
' is very partial to Parma violets, a
I small bunch of sweet peas, or a small
I unopened rose.

Chicago, March 29.���Dwight L.
Price, of Buffalo, NY., is 36 years
old and handsome as a cow puncher
in a Wild West moving picture.
Mrs. Margaret Johnston is a few
years older. She lives at 383 Cass
avenue, Detroit, Mich. She was in
love with Price, lt is said her husband divorced her because of her affections for the younger man.
Mrs. Johnston arrived at the Congress hotel in Chicago on March 9
and engaged a suite of rooms. She
was happy. She smiled at the boy
who brought her ice water and gave
him a big tip. The maid who arranged her bed also was favored with
a smile and a tip.
Yes !    She Was to Be Married.
It became rumored about the hotel j
that Mrs. Johnston had come to Chi-1
cago to be married. March 10 the!
rumor was partly verified by a mes !
senger boy in whose care Mrs. John
Bton had entrusted a telegram to;
"Oh. 1 do hope he answers soon. He |
should be here now," she said
long  will it  take for  me to get    an
answer ?"
The boy lol* her. But the answer
did not come. She stayed over a day.
hoping some of her telegrams would
reach Price, but Price never wen:
near a telegraph office in Buffalo.
So yesterday afternoon Mrs. Johnston packed her suit cases, paid her
bill, aud wept. Then she took the
3 o'clock train back to Detroit. Bu"
she left her story behind.
And Here's What Happened.
Price was to come to Chicago on
March 10 and register at the Black
stone hotel. Then he was to call on
Mrs. Johnston and the two would pay
a friendly call upon the marriage
license clerk and a justice of the
They had planned tt all out in Buffalo and Dwight had been so considerate. Mrs. Johnston had a good deal
of money and some valuable jewelry |
Dwight told her how careless
was in carrying her treasure
the country.
"I'm so afraid." he had said, "tha"
some villain will  take    advantage of j
your innocence and  steal the money j
and  the gems.    Women are so careless that wav."
"But, dear," she had answered, "1
must trust somebody. 1 can't leave
the money here."
But Dwight, careful man, had al
"I  will keep  Your  Money." i
"I will keep your money," he said,
"and your diamonds.    And when  we |
are married you can have them hack." j
So Mrs. Johnston counted out $700
and gave blm $4000 In jewelry, and!
set out light hearted for Chicago, And!
she  waited  and   waited  and  waited,
but tbe bridegroom -never came.
Mrs. Johnstbrt', fs*fl tidt feel she
ought to notify the police. That would
bring too much publicity upon her
and Dwight. and it might get Dwight
into trouble. Besides, maybe the dear
boy couldn't come. He might be sick
cr dead or something, and not to
blame for the delax,
She had known I'm. .several years
and he had tievlr done anything
whicli would lead her to suspect he
was insincere or that he meant io
keep her cash andrg#ms. She believes
he will still "Milt? -Hn?' with the
money and jewels* safe 'and sound,
and that the wedding will take place..

suspicion. Public opinion abroad certainly does net favor Royalist conspiracies, and from today it will condemn with witli especial severity.
Further, the Royalists themselves are
beginning to realize that their wisest
course is to let the republic entirely
alone. They regard it us a clique
based on the indifference of the coun-!
try. a lodge in a garden of cucumbers,
and as such It may be left to work out .
Its salvation. Hut if the amnesty Is
followed by a spirit of toleration In
matters political and religious the republic will win over public opinion
both abroad and in Portugal, lt will
then be vain for the Royalists to pipe,
since the Portuguese people will re-
fuse to dance to their piping.
The  next  two  yaes   will  probably
show win thir or not the republic can
survive the dearth of statesmen and j
the stress of party factions so clearly
shown during the recent ceisis.  Prob*1
a'bly   the   bist   solution   would   be    a
broad-minded and  tolerant    republic,
in   which   all   Portuguese  could   ui it
to    build    up    Portuguese prosperity.
For this the amnesty has laid the first
stone.    But excessive anti-Clericalism
and   the  Carbbnara   must    disappear

Still Suspicious of England.
The suspicion   is still rife   In Por-,
tugal    that     the  outcry   In    Kngland'
against    the    treatment  of  political
prisoners was due to hostility toward j
Portugal, einel  to the    desire    to    setI
Portugal on  fire over this   question,
so that Kngland  In    the    meanwhile
might   quietly  help  herself and  Ger*
many to the Portuguese ci ionics. The
true tacts of the case can, of course,
be  Btated   In  two words.
Although tbe ri public has been
recognized t.y Greal Bfltaln, tbe |
Carbonarla h is not, an I it nan agii m*t
the proceedings of i ie Carbonados
and tlee government which supportedI
I, i and encouraged them that public
opinion  in  England  protested,
The authors of these proceedings'
were not considered in Kngland to be
in any way representative of Portugal.
Moreover, the scant liberty given to
th.* press for some t me undi r the
republic marie it almost imperative
for t'eireign opinion tO ceniie to the
help of the throttled opinion in Portugal, Now the Portuguese Republicans who advocate moderation have
made themselves heard to some purpose, and it only remains-foe foreigners to wish them all Buccese in their
difficult task of permanently checking the extremists.
The amnesty Is proe.f thai the r
public considers Itself able to exist
without the persecutions of secre'
i 'ubllc [societies, and without insulting and
Imprisoning its opponents for their
e pinions, and it must therefore be
accepted as a sign of confide nee and
me opinion that   construction of a IJ
government   railroad   In   Alaska   will jl
have a good effect on trade conditions
all over the Pacific coast. ,
"1 look for a tremendous increase in !
the   production  of  gold,  copper  and
e.".i'i* mineral products of Alaska," he
said,  "and   it  is  certain   that   as   the
railroad  progresses, farmers will set- ,

To    the    re-J improbable, it is within the realm of
a   source   of | possibility   that   within   a   tew   years
Alaska wlll send a large quantity of
agricultural   and   fanning  products   to
the United States.   Anyhow, it is certain   that   Alaska   Will   grove   enough
vegetables and cereals for its own use
and that the population of the. territory will be greatly increased."

The Straight Line

"A Straight Line is the
Shortest Distance between Two Points"
Whatever troubles old Euclid gave us in our schooldays
his axioms were simple enough. In our business life
to-day we show a lively appreciation of the truth of this
axiom in cutting out superfluous efforts���in the saving of
time and  labor.
In making goods the straight line is "efficiency." It is
the shortest distance between raw material and finished
in Selling Goods, the straight line is
Newspaper Advertising.
It is the shortest distance between the seller and the buyer.
Some manufacturers are applying the straight line in the
making of their goods, but neglecting it in the selling of
them. Some have no line of communication with the consumer at all many let their message meander along bypaths of "chance acquaintanceship" instead of telegraphing it along the straight line of Newspaper Advertising.

tho two points of "Supply" and "Demand."

The prince is 44 years of age. He
is the son of a Russian general Vho
is very wealthy and very influential.
His delicate health prevented him
freim entering t'ne army and at 21 he
decided to study law. His family approved of this but when he proposed
lo practice they were indignant. The
P'inne, however, volunteered to prosecute a suit brought by some peasants
against a nobleman friend of his father. The prince, in telling about this
said: "I won my fight and then began
a fight against the oppression and injustice of Russia. I intended to be
only n social reformer fighting for the.
rights of the common people hut because of my activity 1 was soon branded as a dangerous revolutionist. My
Investigations made me become constantly more interested in the awful
condition of the poor, and, as 1 had
money 1 was able to devote myself
to the working people and unfortunates who needed legal and other assistance.
"The issuance of political pamphlets is a crime in Russia. Some of
my friends who were engaged in printing and distributing educational pamphlets were so closely watcher by the
police that 1 hid the pamphlets and
printing machine in my house. The
police, in my absence from the house,
discovered them. The authorities and
my family pleaded with and threatened me. They promised that if 1
gave the names of my friends they
would release me. 1 Vefused and my
family then cast me off.
"After eight months in prison 1 was
exiled to the bleakest part of northern
Russia, a small village called Messen,
north of Arkangle". Eventually 1 escaped and 1 have been a revolutionist
ever since, working for the cause in

For the information of the Canadian farmer the most important results of the season of 1S13 at the dif

in this some recommendations as to
varieties to grow and methods of production to follow that should piove ot

profound vitality, he wlll certainly

will have leisure to take up entirely

success in this connection." M. Rodes

the people can hear them."
