deputation; Mr. Jardine, who had
otner business in Ottawa, left, this
city a day after the delegates, but
reached the capital in time to assist
in making representations to the leaders of the government.
Good Results Will Follow.
In speaking to the Xews this morning. Mr. Kennedy said he was convinced that good results would follow
the trip of the delegates to Ottawa.
The main object of the deputation���
the improvement to the north and
south arms of the Kraser river���has
already been dealt at length in these
columns, but the other missionary
work done by Mr. Kennedy will be
news to the public.
Three  Interviews with  Premier.
In all Mr. Kennedy had three interviews with Sir Wilfrid Laurier, once
in   company   with   the  main   bidy  of
delegates and on    	
when he saw the prime minister on
other matters. He also interviewed
the minister of marine and flshe.ies,

Bigger Wages Asked.
A petition signed by the guards at
the Dominion penitentiary mid endorsed by the executive of the Liberal
association was presented by Mr.
Kennedy to the Hon. A, P. Ay.es-
worth. K.C, minister of Justice. T.ie
burden of the petition was that the
men employed in looking after
the wards of the government should
receive bigger wages, no increases
having been granted for some time, in
spite of the increased cost of living
all over Canada, and more particularly in the west.
In connection with this plea, Mr.
Aylesworth informed Mr. Kennedy
that he would look favorably into the
claims of the men, but that as the
wages of the employees of the penitentiary were fixed by statute, it
would be necessary to introduce a
bill  into    parliament    before    wages

religious movement and leligims subjects are wondering what has become
Of the sect which recently was wont
tto hold meetings of a stienuous character in the little wooden building
south of the Hotel Russell.
The name of the meeting house was-
the Apostolic Mission, aithougn the
name popularly given to the devotees
was "Holly Hollers." The name Holy
Rollers dil not p.operly apply to the
sect, but that is what Kiev were
called.
Whoever they were, they have disappeared. On tlie window of the
place there is a sign thus "To tent,
apply to J. J. Johnston."
There is no notice on the door or
the windows to lead uny setke.s after
truth to their new abode, if tli y have
one.
People coming down Begbie street
have frequently stopped in amazement at the sounds that issued from
the little building. Vociferous prayer.-i
and prayerful groans rent the air ami
it was no uncommon sight to see half
a dozen curiosity mongers Hue up ou
the sidewalk trying to get a peep,
through the cracked frosted windows
at the mysterious iltea within.
The members of the sect comported
themselves with due decorum while
on the street and they never suffered
any police Interference. Once or twice
they held meetings on the street corners and for a brief half hour rati

Army, but they seemed to have drifted away and no man knows wliera
they have gone.

London, Dec. 23.���The old-fashioned
style of celebrating Christmas, with
the blazing Yule log in the fireplace
and the merry family seated around
the festive board, which is groaning
under its load of choice viands, including such delicacies as boar's head,
venison an.l plum pudding, is a thing
of the past so far as London is concerned.
lt may still survive in the households of well-to-do country gentlemen,
conservative enough to preserve ancient traditions, but in London the
custom has died out. The rich leave
their town houses and take their families to some fashionable seaside resort, where they spend the holidays
amid the discomforts of crowded hotel life. The poor stay at home and
enjoy their holidays according to
their means and taste. But there are
no yule loge nor any of The famed accessories of an oil-time Yuletlde celebration. |
The royal household, still in mourning for King Edward, wlll spend the
holidays    in  a    comparatively   quiet
manner.   The king and the queen and
the members of the royal family will'
celebrate   Christmas   "en   famille"   atI
Y'ork  Cottage,  their  charming  estate
in Norfolk.   Although quietly and unostentatiously, elaborate   preparations
have been made for the Yuletide celebration. There will be plenty of good
things for the table, including boar's
head and cygnet and a liberal supply j
of plum pudding, made in accordance i
with the famous recipe, preserved in
the royal tamily for more than a cen-|
tury.    Tbere will be presents   for all
members of the family, a family gathering  around   the   Christmas   tree  in I
the hall and distribution of presents
to the retainers of the king's estate.
King Edward loved to have a num |
ber of intimate friends around bim at I
the  Yuletide season   and   Invariable I
had a large house party ai Sandringham  at  that  time,  but  King George,
limited by the rules of mourning etiquette, will forego the pleasures of a
gathering   of   congenial   friends   this
Christmas, whatever he may choose to
do in the future.
Christmas trade has not been quite
so brisk as last year, owing to the unsettled condition of things caused by
th.e excitement  of the political   campaign  and industrial strikes and disturbances,   which    have   considerably
reduced the purchasing power of the
poorer working classes.   The demand
for toys and other holiday goods of a
; cheaper   gra'e   has   been    lareer    in
I comparison   than    for   some    holiday
\ seasons.

Of GALLANT BAND
New York, Dec. 23.���That Xew
York City is in danger of a lire disaster greater than thai which destroyed San Francisco following the
earthquake is tbo assertion of M, S.
'i anneiibaum, one of the Insurance
experts called upon ior testimony before the state legislative commitee,
which is Investigating fire Insurance
rales and  i onditions here.
"The    danger   of   disaster   to    New
I York is not only a possibility," Mr.
Tannenbaum    told    the    committee.!
1 "The extent, of the San Francisco flre
j was due to the breaking of the water
1 mains, and that is the danger we face.,
Right   now   we  are   digging   tunnels!
j through  the heart  of the city,  vising
I large (juantitles of dynamite.
"Any   day   a  terrific   explosion    as
'sudden and  unexpected as the disaster in the Xew York Central terminal
yards might break two or three of our|
principal water mains.   If this should
I happen, und then two fires should
bieak oul al the same time, where
would Xew York be?

NATIONAL
HYSTERIA
ON   SANITATIONS
Chicago,   Dec.   2'.i,���National   hysteria relative to personal infection and,
the need of sanitation, was discussed
in a  paper prepared by Dr. Alvah H.
Doty, health officer of the port of Xew |
York, and  read  by  A. S.  Knight,  of,
Xew   York,  recently,  at th.e  Associa-I
tion-of Life Insurance Presidents.    It
said:
Disinfection of money is not necessary from a hygienic standpoint,
neither is there the danger of infec-j
tion from straps in public conveyances generally supposed; we are suffering from a sort of national hyste:ii
on tlie subject of sanitation, but fortunately it is on the safer side.

Denver, Col., Dec. 2'.i.���Mrs. David
Goldstein, wife of a wealthy junk
dealer of this city, probably is the
only woman in the United States who
has cone on record as never having
ownel a hat. Tli: was her testimony
in a suit for separate maintenance.
Attorneys for the husband declared
this was due to Mrs. Goldstein's religious beliefs, but the woman said ii
was because her husband would not
spend the money, although, she declared, be is worth $150,000 and has
an income of Jlu.imn a year.
London,   Dec.   23.���The  last   surviving member of the  gallant   band   of
Lucknow V. C.'s, Sir Anthony Dickson.
Home, K. ('. Ii.. celebrated his eighty-
fourth birthday some days ago.
Willi ten comrades, all cf whom
are dead, Sir Anthony, in September,
1857, held a house in a Lucknow bazaar against 100(1 Sepojs for a day
and ni .lit in defence of wounded
men. The little band ha 1 been cut.
off after the march of Havelock's relief column Into Lucknow Residency,
Sir Anthony was a surgeon then attached to the ',10th Light Infantry, and
was with the rear guard that could
net force its way through to the residency with the main body of Havelock's men on September 26.
The events of September 26, which
gained hini the Victoria Cross, are
sllll fresh in the memory of Sir Anthony. "With a guard of 1 TO men,"
he said, "I was sent forward to convey the wounded into the residency.
Sepoys were all around is in the
housetops tiling down, and when we
reached a raised bazaar the native
hearers of tlie palanquins, in which
the wounded were borne, dropped
their  burdens and  tied.
"With four men to help me I dragged some of the wounded Into a one-
story house, where other soldiers ran
to join us. There were only ten ef j
fective men in the house, and outside
I calculated 1000 Sepoys. The mas-'
sacred the wounded men, shooting
and cutting tliem to pieces. We
made a pile of dead to obstruct Sepoys who tried to rush the house, and
kept up a steady fire.
"During the night there wee only
seven of us left fit to fight. The terrors of the night were awful, for others of our wounded had fallen into the
Sepoys' hands, and they burnt them
to death within our sight. When daylight came we had given over hope.
All at once, however, we heard the
crack of Enfield rifles.
"Sure enough, it was a relief force
out from the residency, an I we cheered like mad altogether. We had look
ed death in the face for a day and a
night."
Xew York, Dec. 21.���A short,
squarely built man who twenty-seven
years ago was a cabin boy on the
Great Lakes schooners, has just returned to America for a vacation. He
is registered at a Xew Vork hotel as
Et, I). Buckman, Constantinople, but in
his home town he is known as Buck-
man I'asha, vice-admiral of the Ottoman navy and chief naval adviser to
the sultan.
Buckman began his strange career
on the Great Lakes at the age of fourteen. A few years later he became
commander of the first of the whale-
back steamers, the Joseph L. Colby.
As a salt water seaman, he led tho
life of a world-wide adventurer, finding employment In every corner of the
globe. When the battleship Maine
made her trial runs he was in command of her, and when the Crimes
finished the cruisher Medjidii, he was
assiuned to deliver her to Turkey.
The Turkey navy had been a joke
when Abdul Hamid took a fancy to
the American sailor and asked him to
take a job as naval adviser.
During the next few years, while
the new admiral was putting the Turkish navy in shipshape, he got very
close to th.e sultan, and once saved
the ruler from assassination. He is
the only Christian who ever had actual command of a Turkish uaval
force.
EARL    SEARCHING    FOR
PAINTING   IN   NEW   ENGLAND
Shubert Theatre Destroyed.
Xew Orleans, Dec. 2:;.���in a fire
that caused $200,000 damage in th i
Barone stieet business district, and
heavily damaged ihe new Shuberi
theatre, three negroes were fatally
burned today. For a time the lire
threatened the entire district, hm
finally was brought under control.
Boston, Dec. 23,���Earl Percy, aide
to Earl Grey, the governor-general of
Canada, is at present in the Xew
England states searching for a valuable painting of one of his progenitors,
the tenth Earl of Percy.
The painting is said to be an original Van Dyke, and, of course, very
valuable. There seems some mvstery
as to its exact whereabouts just now,
but of late there have been rumors
that it was to be put up at auction.
The Earl is very desirous of procuring it, and is said to be willing to pav
a good long price for the musty old
bit of canvas on which the features
are now almost unrecognizable.
Art connoiseurs state that this and
some other painting belonging to the
Percy family have unique histories.
Years and years ago the family
were mixed up in tie feuds in the
English and Scottish border. In the-5e
affrays many valuable '.airlorms passed from cue family to another and
some of them eventually drifted to
* America and others to the continent.

POSITION OF SOCIALISM.
Apart from any other circumstance
there is one feature about the result
of the British general election which
may lie regardel as particularly satisfactory. This is that there has been
a. very considerable falling off of support to Socialist candidates. Only
three such candidates have been returned to the new parliament, and in
nearly every case where votes in support of the Socialist program we.-e
sought the poll was very small. This
may be taken as an indication that
the Hritish electorate has lost such
faith as it once professed In the
Socialist propaganda.
In Germany, on the other hand, it
is said the Socialism is growing
rapidly in strength, It is even asserted that the gin ernment fears tho
Socialists will come pretty near to
"carrying the Empire" whenever a
general election takes place. This is
possibly rather an extravagant view
of the position cf affairs. Yet there is
no doubt that the disciples of Karl
Marx have greatly increased in number of late. The severity of the measures adopted by the government in
suppressing recent labor troubles is
said to be responsible for the large accession of support which the German
Socialists have secured. It, however,
remains to be seen whether the forecast upon the present strength of the
German Socialist party is accurate.

proportion of uninflammable matter.
The result is that when the substance
I burns there is left au almost unman-

Summing up, Mr. Suybolt said the
idea was all right, except for the important, fact that it. didn't have

Apart from the demand for turkeys j

this season, the feature of yesterday's!
[market was another five-cent drop in
the price of eggs, which were brought I
forward in large quantities. This isl
a very unusual movement for this i
time of the year, but is probably due1
to the fact that this commodity went
to too high a Ilgure early In the'
winter, with the result that many people decided to cut them oul of the bill
ot fate entirely. Under the circumstances, .here was nothing left, to do
but reduce the price or put the eggs
in cold storage, and as there are hut
few facilities for the latter action in
this par. of the country, yesterdays
decline in price was practically inevitable.
For the rest, the market was chiefly
remarkable  for the  exceptional number of buyers, who thronged the build-

they will celebrate the event in as
many ways as there are differences in
their philosophies. To the grown-ups,
after all, there is not now the
same pure, unalloyed delight with
which it may be imagined the people
greeted the anniversary of the birth
of Christ in an earlier and more childlike era. Thoughts of the many little
worries involved spoil it for them.
They reflect on the fact that it is a
very expensive occasion; something
may have gone wrong with the gift-
choosing; or perhaps they regard the
family plum pudding with dyspeptic
apprehension.
Happy Time for Kiddies.
But to the children, It Is a delightful time, glorified with the certainty
of good thiugs to eat .for a child is
mostly stomach), yet tinged delicious-
Jy with an air of mystery and anticipation.
Does Santa Claus really exist, and
will he really come down the chimney
(alas, the modern chimney was not
built to the spacious ideas of the day
of that myth) ? Does the ancient rite
of calling up the chimney on the Eve
have any real bearing on the gifts of
the morning, and is a diminutive
stocking large enough to hold the
apple of one's eye, the longei for
gift?
These and other kindred queries
agitate the childish mind, to the great
enhancement of its owner's enjoyment.
Then when the dawn breaks, and
the little forms steal from room to
room In their night gear, and frantic
greetings are exchanged, and marvellous toys examinei with indecent
haste, then indeed does the wave of
universal joy reach its meridian;

When the Prodigal Returns.
There is yet another phase of the
season which Is seldom marred by
any fly in the ointment. Christmas
has come to be universally recognized
as the great and appropriate time for
horae coming, and whether it be the
prodigal son. welcomed by the little
mother with tear-dimmed eye, or the
stalwart father gathering his children
in one sweep to his fond arms, or the
daughter, home from college, giving
the glad hand to all her erstwhile
beaux, here is real pleasure of the
finest kin 1.
And then there is the   family   reunion, when the "Old Scout," grimly
jocular, sits at the head of the table
and carves the roast, distributing   it
with a twinkle ln his eye and a glow
In his heart.   What Jokes are cracked,
what,    gusts    of    Homeric    laughter
i startle the family cat, what fun eni
��� fellowship ?     Then   indeed    is   life
, worth living,   and    pessimism   fades
into deserved oblivion.
Therefore, eat, drink and be merry,
for it is Christmas.

Richard III. felt the loss of his horse keenly, but you would feel
just as bad if you lost a valuable horse or horses through an accident or disease.
If you take out a policy on your horses with one of the companies I represent you will displace one of your worries. A policy
of this kind, insures your horses against death from any cause.

Punitive Expedition Probable for Slave Trading
Tribes in Far East.
Paris, Dec. _M.���The public Is becoming more and more interested in
the serious situation in the Tchad region.
The dearly won victory of the lamented Colonel Midi, with bis handful of colonial troops, Is likely to be
followed up by the formidable punitive expedition against the fanatical
slave trading Senoussi tribes, who
have been suppo.ted and supplied
with cpiick firing rifles, ammunition
and other war material by Turkish officers and agents through Tripolitian
ports into Tlhesti.
The vast territory between the hinterland of Triiioli and Lake Tchad is
within the sphere of French influence,
