have been stirred    to    action by tin

Resent Action of U. S.
"i'he bringing of the cruiser to Corinto is resented by Zelaya's followers
ns an unwarranted attempt on the
pan of the United States to influence
the action of the Nicaraguan congress in Its selection of a successor
to  Zelaya.
It is taken for granted here that
the Tun men aboard the Buffalo wlll
be landed and that they win march
on to Managua in the event that congress decides ln favor Of Ur. Jose
Madriz.
This alleged intention, wholly unwarranted by any communications
that have passed het ween Washington and either Vice Consul Calder and
Admiral Kimball, is being used by
the Radicals to foment a demonstration of protest against the United
States and the storm promises to
brea ktomorrow.
The opponents of Zelaya are sc-
cretly lending their aid to the demonstration in the hope that some of the
Americans or their property Will be

Angry Over Premature News.
li Is learned that several members
of the  university consistory are ex-

llmlnarj report, one oi them express-
r, grel thai the university had not
waited until Dr. Cook's claim that he
had reach, l th, pole had been proved
before honoring him.
The Copenhagen newspapers up to
the preseni have been wholly friendly to Dr. Cook, lun it is learned some
of thi ng  dallies tomorrow wlll
print artli les throwing doubt on
Cook's tru tworthiness. They will
point o'.n that the Danish people regard Cook in the llghl ol a national

In a game In tbe Charity Cup Ber-

Xew Westminster won from the Vancouver Shamrocks by the score of 3
to 0. The half time score was 2 to 0.
The locals had the best of the P'ay
all the way through, although the visitors several times became dangerous.
Their loi ward line seemed to be
somewhal weak, being hardly ever
able to negotiate the ball past the local backs. Kobiuson, the New Westminster goal keeper, stopped everything thai cam, ul8 way but he had
a   bard  job   keeping   warn,.
Robertson, tor the Hovers, was
about the .,iost effective man on the
field, although he was handicapped
bj a sore knee, For the visitors took
and Fagau did the good work. GUI
had some haul work to do ill goal
and held down the position well, considering the state cf the ground,
which did not permit much speed.
Hays, Johnston and Robertson di.i
the  scoring.
The attendance was very small, owing to the weather, which was about
the limit, It was not raining but It
was cold aud foggy and the ground
v.i t and about half frozen. The fog
was sei thick that the spectators on
one side of the field could scarcely
see the men on the other, and the
ball was only visible to one Part of

lilS BROTHER SAYS
WATSON IS MAD
Was Not Responsible When
He Attacked the Asquith
Family.
New York, Dec. IS.���William Wat-
sou, the British poet, who came to
tills country recently witn .iis wife,
has disappeared as completely as has
Ur.  Cook.
His brother, Robinson Watson, believes he is under the obsession ot a
recurrent hallucination that lit ml attacked him si .enteen years ago in
the stress o f o^c-work and tbe conflict of powerfully opposed emotions.
"1 declare deliberately, in full
knowledge," said Robinson Watson,
"that the terrible things lightly
hurled by my brother against a certain distinguished family are in no
sense the responsible utterances of
the poet, William Watson. They
are the outcome of a menial malady
alien to himself, and when he returns
to himself, the William Watson we
know will condemn them with burning words and bitter tears."
Strange  Action   Explained.
Robiusou Watson goes on to explain in an interview telegraphed
from Montreal, how his brother came
to enter on "what is perhaps the saddest experience that can be endured
in the life of * any man���a mental
aberration."
Un the death of Lord Alfred Tennyson, William Watson, he said labored fifty hours, without rest aud
almost without food, to produce what
was originally Intended to be a brief
commemorative poem, but, under the
impulse of burning ambition, became
"laclirymae musarum," a poem of
poem on which Robinson Watson
quotes Gladstone as having said that
"lt is  greater  than  Tennyson's  own

Sealskins Fetch High Figure.
Victoria, Dec. 18.���The annual sealskin sale held at London yesterday
resulted lu prices from lii to 30 per
cent, higher being realized. Cargoes
of 14 British Columbian and Japanese
sealers and the fleet from Halifax,
which hunted off cape Horn and
Uruguay, were sold. The British
Columbia catch was 3552 skins, taken
by five vessels, the average being
good, but, owing to the smallness of
the fleet, the catch, like the fleet, was
the smallest on record. The prices
brought for Behrlng Sea and North
Paclflc sealskins were from $24 to
$30, an Increase of 30 per cent., while
Cape Horn skins brought $35 to $36,
an increase of 15 per cent.
Accident Doesn't Delay Messenger.
London, Dec. 18.���A plucky little
messenger boy, while uhrrying along
Piccadilly the other day, was knocked
down and run over by a taxlcab. Directly he was picked up from under
the cab he saw a constable, and, disregarding all Inquiries whether he
was injured, he drew a telegram from
his pocket and handed it to the constable.
Rev. George A. Wilson Makes
Appeal for Assistance in
Missionary Work.
The Rev. George A. Wilson, . p, r-
lutendent of home missions In Bil-
tisli Columbia, occupied the pulp., of
St. Andrew's church last night and
spoke on the work and needs of this
department, Taking as his text, "The
Harvest is Plenteous, but the Laborers are Few," he dwelt on the great
opportunity for mission work that
Canada now presented.
Ontario's   Yard.
ln pointing out the opening for missionary woi a in New O.i.alio, the
speaker gave some very interesting
fuels and figures regarding the great
Cobalt mining country, lie said that
there wa* $300,000,000.00 of capital
Invested in the country now known
us New Ontario; the country tha; the
settlers tliere called the front yard
of Ontario. It extended east and weBt
from the Ottawa riv, r to Lake Nlpl-
gon, and nortii and south, from the
Height of l.and, a few miles nortii of
the north shore line of the Canadian
Pacific railway  to .lames  Bay.
In this country ther, was untold
mineral and forest wealth, and wnen
the bush was partly c.eared it was
freely prophesied thai the agricultural resources tliere would equal those
of old Ontario. Into this empire there
was pouring an endless Stream of settlers of all nationalities and creeds,
and it was impossible wi'u the number of missionaries and the lack of
sufficient funds to provide them with
anything like proper spiritual education.
In tlie prairie provinces the same
thing was happening. The speaker
said that if all the homesteads that
have been taken up in the last few
years were placed end to end they
would make a strip of land 19 miles
wide, stretching from Winnipeg to
the Rocky mountains. Here again was
a lack of men to carry on the work
of the church and many mission fields
were vacant.

"And now 1 must disclose the- fact
that al that time my brother had 11 n
for many years contending with ad-
verse pecuniary circumstances," continued Robinson Watson, "and when j
tb, great news came ll was like a
veritable avalanche oi good fortune
to him.
"Bul it was too high; It was more
than he could bear. A week lain- it
became evident beyond all doubt that
his mental  balance  was gone."
William Watson's delusions, says
his brother, assumed the form of a
belief thai he had a mission to perform against certain exalted personages, That belief, the brother is
convinced, has returned.
"The poet," he said, "has come to
Auk ilea witl, a deeply rooted belief
that he lias a mission of hostility
against a certain faintly In high . tation in Kngland. Nothing can dis-
Buade bim from that wild infatuation."
