that on the Von der Tann, and having
its origin also In tbe storeroom, ia

Harrisburg, III. Oct. 23.���Nine men
were killed, ten others severely
wounded, were cai ried up by rescueis,
and fifteen more were imprisoned by
a cave-in, as a result of an explosion
of a keg of powder wbicb ignited tire
damp today ln O'Gara mine No. 9, a

were not lost was due to tbe fact that
the shift was changing when the explosion occurred.
The explosion, although it occurred

muffled by the strata above It, was
heard here. Several men, with cloth
over their noses and mouths had

In All  Encounters With  Italian    Sol-
dlery Turks Have Shown the
Most Reckless Bravery.
Tripoli, Oct. .23.���Ttoe fighting at
Benghazi between the Italians and
tbe Turks bas beesi of the fiercest
character. AfW<r an engagement
which lasted all day Oct. 19, the
Turks returned to the camp during
the night. They made a savage onslaught upon the Italian camp, but
were repulsed. In the morning the
Italian forces occupied the city. The
Turkish losses were heavy and the
Italian dead number not less than one
There are good reasons for believing that the Italian forces at Benghazi have been severely handled by
the Turks and their Arab auxiliaries.
It Is understood tbe Italian losses are
much heavier than officially reported.
Color Is given to tbis belief by the
hurried departure for Benghazi of
four warships and the hospital ship
Reina Margherita.
Steamer passengers who went to
Benghazi but were unable to land Bay
the Turks and Arabs have displayed
reckless bravely In making furious at--j
tacks on the small Italian forces entrenched. There also are reports of
massacres of Christians at Derna and
Benghazi, but no confirmation has
been received.

Queensborough Drainage.
Queensborough Improvement Association wrote complaining that the
petition presented to the council calling for an efficient drainage syatam
had not received the consideration
due to such an important matter. The
communication went on to state that
the petition was signed by property
owners whose money interest In the
district aggregated at a conservative
estimate $800,000, and the writers
were unable to understand the letter
of the city clerk "that he thinks the
improvement asked for could not be
provided for under the Municipal
Clauses Act." The contention was
advanced in the letter that sections
266. 267, and 268 of the Act most
clearly define that the municipal eounell bas the power to provide for these
Tbe letter went on to state that lt
was immaterial whether the work was
done under the Local Improvement
By-law or under any other law. In
the communication of the city council
dated August 15, it was recommended
to be done under this by-law, and as
the property owners agreed to carry
tbrough part of the expenditure, the
Association thought it was to the best
advantage of the city to have the
work done under this bylaw.
In the same communication from
the council, proceeded the letter, the
figure for the drainage pumn was
given ns $3800. The Rssociation had
consulted several engineering firms

Gets Five Thousand Dollars at Point
of Gun But for Short Time
Port William, Ont., Oct. 23.���One of
tbe most daring robberies In this section took place wben a man entered a
bank at noon and held up the teller at
tbe point of a gun and took between
Ove and six thousand dollars.
Tbe robber, after securing the
money backed out of the bank and
started down Victoria avenue, followed by several persons to whom the
teller had shouted tbe alarm.
Half an hour later the pollce captured a man believed to be the robber ln the coal dock section. He offered no resistance. None of the
money was recovered.
It is alleged that A. R. Running,
formerly accountant in the Royal
bank, was the robber. Running, who
had been connected with the Royal
Bank for about three year;, came hero
eix months ago. He came originally
from Brockville. Ont.

VANCOUVER, B.C.. Oct. 23.���The
sphere ot woman's activity ln British
Columbia Is not boundless. Th- law
says it has limits. Tn en appeal case
here today. Mr. Justice Morlson ruled
that no provision Is made under the
law for women practising at the bar
in this province.
The case Is one in which great interest has been taken. Flippant
young barristers have been ln the
habit of enquiring why, Flnce bar
maids have been put out of business
in Great Britain, maids should be allowed to practice at the bar In British
Columbia. On the other hand, the
Woman's Equality League have been
active ln asserting the right of women
to practise as wwell as men, and it is
to be expected that Attorney-General
Bowser will be bombarded with requests for such alteration of the law
as will permit women pleaders to appear In court.

The steamer Montara, Captain Harrison, of the Pacific Steamship Company's fleet arrived yesterday at 7
a.m from San Francisco with 700
tons of cement and salt, which she
discharged at the Evans-Coleman

between Vancouver Island ports and
San Francisco In the coal trade. Sho

Lisbon, Oct. 23.���The failure of the
Royalist campaign becomes more apparent. The people ln general continue completely indifferent to the
Royalist propaganda. An additional
reason for their quiescent attitude is
to be found in a proclamation just
issued by the carabineers that any
inhabitant discovered conspiring
against the republic will be instantly
The Royalists have suffered further
discouragement on the frontier, for
the Spanish government apparently
has decided to take active measures
against them.
During the last forty-eight hours, a
hundred Royalists have been disarmed. Despite these obstacles, the Royalists are reported as preparing for a
second combined incursion Into Portugal. They will be divided Into three
columns, 450 mpn under Captain Cou-
clere, the Royalist leader, near Port
Torttellohomen; 800 under Camacho,
near Londoso, and 250 under Chagas
These will await the subsidence of
the floods, and the arrival of a Royalist, cruiser, and it la said, will tben at

Tacoma, Wash., Oct. 23.���In a
hearing that is a forerunner of the

by Mrs. Linda Burfleld Hazzard, "the

Williamson, who charges that Mrs.
Hazzard starved her sister, Claire
Williamson, to death after securing
her property, repeated in the courtroom at Port Orchard today part of
the sensational story which led to Dr.
Hazzard's arrest. The hearing was
held pursuant to an order of the court
that Mrs. Hazzard give an accounting
of her two months' guardianship of
the estate of Mlss Williamson, from
which she waa discharged on July 31
when a court investigation decided
that Miss Williamson was not an Insane perBon, as charged by Dr. Hazzard. Counsel for Mlss Williamson,

which bhould be returned. This

cut down the Vancouver tug Noname
yesterday afternoon at 4.30 p.m. two
miles north of the Fraser river lightship, and ten minutes after the collision the tug, which is valued at $25,-
000, sank. The crew of nine men
scrambled aboard the Iroquois and
weri' brought ln here last night.
Dense fog prevailed at the time
and the Iroquois came on to the tug
suddenly. Engines were reversed and
helms altered, but the smash could
not be avoided, and tl.e tig was sti ue'.;
amidships on the port Bide. The Iroquois nearly cut light through the
Noname and before she backed clear
Captain Jack Barbari and his crew

clambered aboard the passenger boat.
The Noname left here yesterday
towing a scow on which was a heavy
donkey engine. Her destination was
Salt Spring Island. Aftar the collision the tow rope was cast off and
the Iroquois took the scow alongside
and brought lt Into Vancouver. She
docked at 8.30 o'clock last night
There was great excitement on the

Royal Ladles Welsh Choir.
Madame Thomas, leader of tho
Ladles' Welsh choir, wbicb is to appear here tonight, has been privileged
to represent Welsh music in a great
number of places outside the United
Kingdom frcm time to time. When
the Irish people inaugurated their
movement for the resuscitation of the
Irish language and Irish music, they
instituted inquiries with regard to
national music in Wales, and in 1899,
1900 and 1901, Mme. Thomas provided programmes of Welsh music at
the Irish Oireachtas meetings, held
at the rotunda. Dublin. The welcome
Bhe received on that occasion from
the warra-heaited Celts of the Emerald Isle wlll never be forgotten by
her and those who had the pleasure
to accompany her. The striking
scene that occurrei when, on one
occasion, with Cardinal Logue in the
chr.ir, the "Men of Harle;h" wus
sung to full band accompaniment,
produced a scene of enthusiasm. At
the time when Madame Thomas was
mayoress of Cardiff, she, with ber
husband, was invited to enter
L'Orlent, to celebrate the centenary
of Brizeaux. the national poet of
Brittany, and again in July, 1906,
when "Les Fetea Ce'tlques" wcra
held in Saint Brieu, she was invited
to provide a representation of Welab
music on tbat occasion. In the presence ot fopm 25.000 to 30,000 people,
In tbe protect of St. Brieu. tbe songs
of Wales wero sung, and received
with a futore of appreciation. Indeed. It. seemed as If tbe Whole proceedings would be come a huge Welsh
concert. This was particularly the
oase when "Captain Morgan's March"
was sung. It may not be generally
known that this music, under tbe title
ot "Sezis Owen-Gamp," is aa well-
known tn Bilttany aa in Wales, and
tt was a pleasant surprise to many
to find that both nations have this
music in common.     ,

The first Sunday of autumn in London brought with lt the pleasantest
features cf the "Indian summer"
known across the Atlantic
weather was Ideal, with just the bracing tinge and sharpness whicli attends walking and driving under the
best conditions.
All London Beemed to be back
from tho seaside and the moorland
and the heath���not the London of
May or Ascot Sunday, hut rather the
London of the middle class and the
worker. Everywhere one observed
the soberer tints of autumn dresses
In the park, ln the streets, in the
churches, and at the concerts and
Sunday  entertnlnments.
St. Paul's Cathedral was crowded
under the dome and transepts at all
the 8���/vIce4- Especially was this
the case at the service In tbe afternoon, when the canon ln residence.
Rev. J. G. Simpson, preached, and
Wesley's fine anthem "Ascribe unto
the Lord" was beautifully rendered
by the choir.
At the Abbey, looking none the
worse for Its recent experiences. Archdeacon WUberforce preached to an
enormous congregation In the afternoon. Everywhere one observed the
large number of foreign visitors, a
sign th^t the holiday season ln London Ib not yet at an end. The feature of the service waa the splendidly
eloquent tribute of Dr. WUberforce
to the character of his late colleague
and friend of many years, Canon
Duckworth. Throughout the great fane
there was a reverential silence during its utterance that told lmpresslve-
.y of the respect felt for the great
churchman now passed away. At
Westminster Cathedral the music
was. as It invariably ls, a great attraction for an Immense congregation.
Certainly one of the features of
London's Sunday In the churches was
the reference ln many of the Nonconformist places of worship to the protected Well-Johnson contest. At the
City Temple (the Rev. R. J. Campbell) at Union Chanel. Islington (the
Rev. W. Hardy Harwood), stron?
denunciations were uttered, and at St.
Mary at Hill church, Eastcheap, the
lantern service drew a crowded congregation, the subject being the
"Wells-Johnson fight."
In many churches and chapels harvest thanksgivings were held and
this was especially a feature in chapels, where the annual observance is
usually earlier than In other places
of worship.

i the Royal Albert Hall the new sym-
' phony orchestra was heard to^reat
advantage under the direction of Mr.
Landon Ronald, while the Queen's
Hall was crowded at the afternoon
concert, when, in addition to the
| Queen's   Hall   Orchestra,   which  ren
dered a varied programme embracing excerpts from Wagner, Brahms
and Berlioz, there appeared Mr. John
Szlgeti, a violinist of high reputation.
Scenea in the Open.
But the great "boulevards" of London   were  crowded    throughout    the
day, and the picture shows did good
business.    Fresh from their holidays,
thousands paraded the Mlle End road,
where all "East London"  seemed to
be enjoying the balmy weather conditions.    Earlier   in   the  day   one observed the stations still crowded with
patrons of the many excellent cheap
excursions   to   Brighton.  Eastbourne,
I Hoxhlll.    Folksone,    snd     Worthing,
The . and to Clacton.    Felixstowe, Walton,
'and Cromer.    It Eeemed as lf every-,
one was loth to part with the Bunyner,
just gone and was eager to snatch a j
day from the more rigorous days soon
to come.
The public parka also ministered to!
the  needs  of   tbe  community,  while
many, profiting by the fine weather,
motored or cycled  Into the country.
Hyde   Park   bore   a   somewhat   subdued air after  the  brilliance of  the
paat   months.    Here  there  was   less
disposition on the part of the public I
to listen to the orators who usually'
erect   their   "talking   stations"   adjacent to the Marble Arch entrance.   A
small  crowd  hung listlessly  round a
wagon in the park, where a lady ad-
vooated  the   female   suffrage   cause.
The   flag   hung   languidly    alongside, j
and the votaries of voters were them-1
selves less tumultuous than usual. It |
was a quiet time also wdth the other j
speakers.    The  aged gentleman  who
exploited the pros and cons of Infant 1
baptism failed  to dispel the indlffer-
ence of his auditors.   A younger man
pleaded with more success the claims |
of the antl. Socialist movement, but
upon   reaching   the   statistics    upon
which the force of hls argument was
based a competitive crowd of enthusiasts "next door" struck  up a hymn,
which   temporarily   handicapped   the
anti-Socialist statistician.    But   there
was an elderly  speaker, with  a foreign  name,  who defied  rival   noises.
Equipped with a fair-sized megaphone
he forced the truth home to the most
reluctant ear. The need for the megaphone was soon apparent, for he had
undertaken a heavy task.    In himself
was  epitomised   (as  set   forth   on  a
large placard):    "The propaganda of
humanitarian   deism  for   the  conversion    of   Jpwb,    Christians.    Moham-
etans, Thelsts and other misbelievers
and    sinners    into   humanitarian   deists."
Judge Rentoul, who, with some
friends, was doing the round of the
booths, from suffragtsm to infant
baptism, wore a perplexed look as he
drew nigh to the megaphone artist
and listened for a time.
Back From Holidays.
Hampstead heath lacked nothing
that was needed to make the North
London Sunday enjoyable. The
bright sunshine of the afternoon and
the genial temperature of the evening
drew multitudes to the heath���In fact,
tiie number of people who frequented
the heights during the past summer
was almost double the record of previous  years.
Of course, there were the usual flve
or six speakers who frequent the
spaces allotted for peripatetic oratory. The Socialist contende 1 vociferously with the tariff reformers, and

The corner of the Latchmere Arms
and  Parkgate,  Battersea, were coigns '
of vantage which the Right Hon. John I
Burns used to avail himself on Sun-!
days   in   his  Socialistic  days.    They I
were  occupied   yesterday   by   voluble
successors, whilst In  Battersea park
and   Clapham   common    the    county)
council bands discoursed some really i
capital music to large audiences.   For
tbe holidays are over, and the bourgeoisie   must   seek    relaxation    near
home.   The weather was not too cold
for   sitting    through    the   programs,
���ad  a multitude of halfpennies   (all |
that the use of a chair costs at Clap-
ham)   were expended  on  the  recrea-1
tion.    Hundreds of children and even
"grown-ups"  found   entertainment  ln!
model  yacht racing, and  everywhere
order prevailed.      The park  keepers
are  loud  In  their  praise  of  tho  improved behavior of the frequenters of
the  commons.      Although   the  horse
chestnut season ls not yet over, there
Ib little complaint made of the conduct of the children.    "I don't know
why it is," said a policeman on Clap-
ham    common    yesterday,   "but    we
meet with fewer hooligans than ever.
Perhaps   itg   some   change   in    the
school   training,   but    certainly   the
children are better behaved than they
used to be.    We now have very lit
tle Btone-throwing at the trees, and,
although the ponds are used for bathing very few of the little ones get
out of hand."
���But any sketch of London's Sunday yesterday would be incomplete
without a reference to the lovely conditions which favored those who took
occasion by the hand and went up-

great as in mid-June, but they were
surprisingly "many" for the last week
ln September. At Hampton Court,
Richmond and Staines the river was
flecked with craft, and but for tbo
calendar one might have thought it
the first day of May rather tban tho
last Sunday of September.

E. A. Paige Managing Director
it would be a difficult matter at
this season of the year to hit upon a
more efficient scheme whereby to advertise British Columbia as a whol,>.
and the distiict of New Westminster
In particular, than that chosen by the
Provincial Government which has taken the form of a ton and a half of
selected potatoes gathered from all
ports of the province, and which have
been forwarded to New York to compete for the Stlllwell Challenge trophy at Madison Spuare Gardens next
The exhibit has been collected and
selected by possibly the greatest authority on the potato in British Columbia, and under his care and that
of the Publicity Agent for New \. estminster. another high authority on
the ublpultous tuber, and moreover on
advertising In general, it went forward to New York on Saturday.
Nothing has been left undone  by
these two men which could possibly
enhance the exhibit and give It greater  potentialities   as  a   prize  winner.
The province has b?en combed with a
tine   tooth  comb  for   the   best   and
nothing but the best.   The wrapping,
the packing  and  the   labeling   have
been placed ln the hands of experts
In these matters, and two better men
could not have been appointed to accompany    the    exhibit   to   Madison
Spuare Garden, there to eulogize it
and the province.
In connection with the labeling lt
may once more be stated that the tag
on each box bears the following inscription: "Collected and packed at
New Westminster, the agricultural
capital of British Columbia."
It is possible that It may be said
T>y those who have the interest of the
province nearest to their hearts that
New York is not the place from which
they  would   make  their  first  choice
���ot  immigrants,    lt ta even on record
among tYie statistics coYVected by the
authorities ot the V.  S
least  desirable   class  ot  Immigrants,
ot  all  that  come  to thla   continent,
land at the Port of New York.
But that does not affect the masnl-
���tude of the advertising scheme. The
main point is that if this exhibit
from New Westminster should win
the Stilwell Trophy, the highest
honor possible on the whole of the
North American continent, a measure of publicity will have been gained
which cannot well be estimated, and
the fact will be noted and repeated
again and again throughout the British Dominions. And it Is this larger
and mere desirable field from which
VL. C. wishes to attract it's future citizens.
In any event win or lose, a great
advantage v.iH have been gained and
an amount of publicity for the province obtained which could have bean
assured in no other way so economically, with as wide a range, or eo
This Is practical advertising, indeed, and the Provincial Government
deserves the hearty approval of the

The association asked for a joint

might be possible. They also asked
tor reconsideration of the petition.
Tho letter was signed by C. A. Rob-

It was agreed to hold a joint meet-

The following resolution from the
Local Option League of B. C. was re
���ceived and left over for a week:
The municipal council of New
Westminster agrees to the amendment of the Municipal Clauses Act,

Grading Sixth Street.
One of the brisk discussions in a
somewhat short session ensued upon
introduction of the question of the
grading of Sixth  stieet.
Aid. Johnston, referring more particularly to Qurens' avenue, said lie
had ')een asked to go and see the
j;rade. lie thought it was up to the
city to level up the tracks, or to have
the levels made up to the tracks, and
this would mem that they would havo
to tai<e everything to the level of the
macadam. Hereafter, in justice to
the council, no grading  should      be

British Columbia Ignored.
Mayor Lee said that all through his
Eastern trip he never heard British
Columbia mentioned hy nny of the
immiaration officials, simply because
British Columbia was not included in
the government immigration policy.
This was working a hardship to the
province. He knew of an instance
where a party went in and asked for
Information about British Columbia
and was simply told they didn't know
anything about Hritish Columbia. The
prairie provinces w?re included in the
policy. He would like to see the
council pass a resolution asking the
policy, and asking councils and boards
of trade throughout the province to
join in this request.
Aid. Johnston moved that the matter be left in the hands ot his worship.
"Aid. Dodd thought the matter re-
nulred a whole lot of consideration.
The Trades and Labor Council had to
pay an agent to tour Great Britain
informing the people of conditions as
they really were in Canada. The
Government was not so bad as the
Salvation Army and other organza-
tions who were scattering yarns
broadcast in the Old Country which
did not correspond with facts as they
were found in Canada." He did not
think the city should be a party to
bringing people here under false pretences. A matter of this kind should
be fully considered and the people of
the Old Country should he shown ex
actly what to expect. There should
be no misrepresentations.
.Mayor Lee said this was exactly
what hs had in mind in making the
resolution. The only advertising
matter with regard to Hritish Columbia which had reached the outside
world had been through advertising
agencies, whloh had not the backing
or the responsibility of the government. What he aimed at. was the
dissemination of information by the
government, which, of course, could
do nothing else than give accurate
The resolution was carried.
City vs. Coghlan.
Begardtng this matter the Finance
Committee reported that on the advice of the city solicitor this matter
been settled. The conditions of tlie
settlement are that Coghlan pays
$5011 in addition io his account for
bricks, $406.59, which was not disputed. Coghlan has withdrawn his
claim for trespass of lots by burning
of cord wood.

which can be used as an ordinary, rifle and another as a machine gun.
Mr. Svenson claims that his weapon
can at wlll be made to perform both
functions without its w<.'ght in anyway being Increased, lt can be
loaded either at the breach or underneath by inserting the cartridge magazine.
A company of infantry, equipped
with the new rifle and forming a
front of fifteen paces, can fire, it is
said, 70 sho'.s per second, or if f'tted
with a larger magazine, 240 to 250
shots in three seconds. A battery of
machine guns, consisting of four
pieces, served by sdxteen men, with
their officers, would occupy a front of
fifteen paces and fire under the same
conditions only 32 to 95 shots respectively in the same space of time.
In adition to this, machine guns
are difficult to transpo;t, or to place
in position, or to hide from tbe enemy, which is not the case with the
rifle of the Svenson type.
The new weapon ls about the same
weight as the Mauser ri.'le. and has
the same kind of barrel, but its entire
length  is five centimetres shorter.
Another advantage is Its simplicity
of construction, possessing, as it does,
only seventeen movable parts, including tha spiral springs.

Will   Be   Possible   to   Dispatch    Torpedo Against Vessel While Sender Remains Safe.
London. Oct. 23.���Great success has
attended a series of experiments
made by the staff of the Vernon Torpedo School at Portsmouth in controlling submarines solely by Hertzian or wireless waves.
The Vernon torpedo experts have
discovered a device which makes it
possible to navigate a submarine from
the deck of a warship, though the little vessel may have no one aboard
The experlemnts have shown that so
complete ls the influence exercised
over the craft by means of the wireless waves that it can be driven
either submerged or on the surface.
The experiments are a development
of the operations on which the Ad-
inirajty have been for some time engaged in perfecting the wireless torpedo. This Is now In an advanced
stage, though much has still to be
achieved before it ls brought to a
state cf perfection.
fi****- *^ti***rlm**iti* -with ���- the ��� submarine were conducted with one of
the i olland boats off Selsey. The con-
troll .ig apparatus was aboard the
cruiser Furious, tender to the Vernon,
and now used largely as an expert
mental wireless ship.
As a precautionary measure no one
was allowed on board the submarine
during the trials, though it is said
that the step was quite unnecessary,
and volunteers were ready to undertake the duty if required.
It Is considered more than possible that in the very near future it
will be possible for a torpedo to be
directed by means of wireless to the
hull of an enemy's vessel from a position in which iU^assailant can come

own and more than its own. To the
self-same conditions that have caused Germany to register the lowest
potato crop ln three decades, that
have eliminated t'ie best sugar output of Northern Europe and have
sent the prices for vegetables and
fruits ln the markets of Germany,
France and Austria soaring, vineyards
have broken all records.
The desert-like conditions that
have killed or half killed the crops
of eatables have but added to the
wine making contents of the grapes,
the long, hot spells having put into
the wine grapes a flavor that will
mean high prices for the "vintage of
1911," and a quality that has not
been recored since the famous vintage of 1893.
Big Yield Indicated.
For France, the leading wine producing country of tbe world, tbe estimates of the L'nited States department of agriculture's agents ln Europe point to a yield of 1,263,000,000
gallons. The average for the preced-!
lng ten years was 1,300,180,000 gallons. For Italy, this year's production will be slightly more than 1.188,-
000 000 gallons, which is slightly higher than the ten-year average of 1,102,-
615,000 gallons. Spain will add 442,-
598,000 gallons to the European wine
output���virtually an average, for from
1901 to 1910 Spain produced an average of 437,221,000 gallons. Hungary
expects to produce 105,668,000 ga.ions
of her famous high flavored wines
against a ten-year average of 109,493,-
000 gallons. The other countries will
add to the total a fraction less than
500.CT0.000 gallons of wine of all
There will be more champagne this
year than ever before in the history
of viticulture; not because the vineyards of Northern France have been
unusually productive, but because under the new law of the French Republic a larger territory has been admitted to the privilege of branding
Its  products  "champagne."
Until June 7, 1911, the only section
of France wherein the use of the
word "champagne" upon the bottle
labels was permitted were tn the Departments de la Marne and de la
Alsne. All the other,"flz" producing
sections of tbe territory lying Just
east'of Paris were compelled to use
other nomenclature.
New  Champagnes.
Tbe new act has admitted to the
privilege of using the word "champagne" the remainrhg Arondlssem-
ents of the Department de la Marne
1 and de la Alsne as well as two Aron-
raissements    of   the    Department   de
l'Aube, one Arondissement of Haut
Marne and one of the Department of
Seine et Marne. The pesmlsslon to
use the tallsmanic word carries with
it a resriction. All of the wine from
the added territory must be labeled
"Champagne Second Zone."
Restrictions of the severest kind
have been placed upon the manufacture, handling and cellaring of the
newer champagnes. The French government wlll permit no mixtures of
wines from the two section���the old
and the newer, the second zone label.
The planters who sell to the wine
manufacturers will receive about four
francs per kilogram for their grapes.

Daily   Parade  of   Rome's   Rich   Will
Be Foregone in Favor of General   Public.
Rome, Oct. 23.���Through the acquisition by the city of Home of the
famous Villa Borghese. which lies
Just outside the walls of the old city,
and its conversion into an Immense
public park under the name of the
Villa Umberto, Rome has lost one of
its most famous and most characteristic social customs. This was tbe
world known drive every afternoon to
the Coibo and the Pincian Hill. Tho
drive is still taken, hut the things
that went to make it famous are now,
like so many other things in Rome,
merely a matter of the past.
Until this change caino about, all
of the Roman aristocracy and "Patrlz-
ioso" for folly a century past took
this daily drive to the Corso. It was
as obligatory as the necessity of eating and as unchanging as the laws of
the Medes and the Persians.
The Corso Itself, over which the
drive started, was formerly the famous Flamlnlan Way, over which for
centuries before the beginning of the
Christian era, Rome rushed its troops
to the north. Just as over the equallv
famous Appian Way, it poure.l Its
troops to the south. The portion of
this old Flamlnlan Way, which still
remains within the walls of the present day Rome, extends from the
Piazza del Popolo and Is one of th'
narrowest of the principal streets of
the city.
Narrowness Its Feature.
It was this   narrowness, however,
more than anything else that probably came to make the afternoon drive
to the Corso so famous   and which
brought to the street, under its new
modern name, almost aB much fame,
although of a transitory nature, as lt
enjoyed ln its palmiest days as   the
Flamlnlan   Way.     Promptly   at   four
o'clock every afternoon all the famous
Roman families started on this drive
through the Corso.    There were the
families whose princely titles came to
them   through   the   church.     During
the  latter part of the  last   century
there   was   also   the   families   whose
honors   came  to  them   through   the
Qulrlnal.    There were all of the old
families of the Roman aristocracy, all
of the old patrician families, families
whose     names     have     rung    down
through the ages of Italian   history.
Then after a few turns in the Corso
the carriages drove from the far end
of the Corso, the Piazza del Popolo,
to the Pincian Hill, a little park overlooking the entire city, but covering
in its original confines hardly  more
than two or three city blocks.   Here
again the narrow limits and confine-
kept everyone in the closest possible
possible for the Indians to cobs them
by means of canoes they have resorted to bridging.
Their bridges are Interesting structures from the engineering point of
view, inasmuch as the cantilever
principle ls adopted. A bridge of this
design spans the fiulkeley River
where It is about 120 feet wide, and
the height from the bridge to water
level is about eighty feet.
It is built of wooden logs, the legs
of the structure being foimed of single stout logs varying from sixty to
eighty feet in length. The task of
lowering tliem Into position must
have demanded considerable ingeu
ity on the part of the builders.
They are burled about fifteen feet
at their lower ends an.l anchored by
the super-imposition of masses of
large rock rolled and carried to the
site. The logtldunlal members of the
shore spans are similarly buried in
the ground and lashed to the ends of
the diagonal legs.
These main members, coresponding
to deck girdles are about 120 feet in
length, and to either end the A mem
bers of the superstructure are lashed. Elaborate cross bracing Is resorted to In order to secure greater
When the bridge was first erected
the different members were simply
secured together by willow thongs,
but when the British Columbian government erected a more substantial
ssupenslon bridge lower down the
river the Indians assembled and fol
lowed the white man's operations
with great interest. They observed
how the thick wire cables were slung
and anchored, and accordingly decided to Introduce wire Into tlieir own
They procured the material for th's
purpose from wherever they could
and introduced it in a most fantastic
manner. Also when the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway engineers commenced working on their track near
by the Indians procured odds and
ends, such as bolts and spikes from
them for introduction in their bridge
so that now it ts a strange looking
piece of work, though the fundamental cantilever lines are still distinct.

Pittsburg. Pa., Oct. 23.���Pittsburg's
nine councllmen, appointed recently
by Governor Tener to give this city
a clean government, have opened
war on women smoking cigarettes in
publlc places.
A hundred society women who
favor smoking cigarettes in cafes are
preparing to give the city a fight.
They declare they have a right to
smoke wherever they please and
when they please.
Following a church meeting several nights ago the elders and pastors and their wives went to a downtown cafe to dine. They declared
they could hardly find their way to
tables owing to the thick clouds of
smoke from cigarettes in the mouths
of a score of society women.
The church people appealed to the
mayor, and the mayor took it up with

So strong is the belief in this legend that when it was announced
that the late King Edward Intended
to liave the gem set in his crown,
many leading Indians petitioned h's
maiesty to pive up the idea.
The result was that the Koh-i-noor
Instead of appearing in the king's
crown, was mounted in Queen Alexandra's diadem. It has now Veen
transferred to the crown of Queen
Mary, and before the close of the
year this historic gem will he seen

it came.
Large Diamond Lotus.
Another notable jewel to te wo-n
by Queen Mary at De hi is a large
diamond lotus, which is now being
mounted by her majesty's jewelers.
This will he worn at the enthronement, as will the magnificent necklace which was one of India's presenl to her majesty when, as Princess
Of Wales, she made he-,- memorable
visit to the Kast. The necklace is
formed of graduated pe&rls, all differ-
In:: in eolor. The central slone is an
immense gray pearl of matchless
beauty and si/e. and among the oth-
< rs are perfect, specimens cf the
mauve, bronze, pink, black ami yellow  pearl.
Many of the cloth of gold dresses
being made for the queen will have
in their composition needlework,
specially made iii Delhi during the
present year.
Following her majesty's example
most of the ladies who will attend
the Delhi pageant have chosen for
their dresses gold cloth and tinsel
woven brocades. Lotos blue, emerald
t;reen and orange are other colors
favored by the queen and by those
who will accompany her.
Discharged  From Asylum.
By an order-ln-couneil of tlie provincial   executive   Just   adopted,   Isaac
Harry   Nosovitch.   who,   during   the
past  six  months has been  a patient
ln the criminal ward of the hospital
for the insane at New' Westminster,
has been  discharged from  that institution  as  cured  and  realeased  from
custody    upon   the    recommendation
and with the approval of tlie law officers  of  the  crown.    It   will   be   remembered    that.    Nosovitch.   a    milk

motive  for  the  um.rovoked  attack -
and upon Nosovltch's arral.tnmeni far
shooting  with  intent  to murder, the
Jury recommended an examination as]
to   mental   condition.     This examination   beins-   made   showed   the   man
not to lie held responsible for his ac-j

lias since been brought about.

In time, the fortunes of family after

and fell, hut few Indeed were the
families whose fortunes ebbed' so low
that tliey could not keep their carriage and horses with which to make
the daily drive to the Corso. They
might live on bread alone at home,
their servants might work solely
through family loyalty, with never
a thought cf pay, but always enough
was somehow kept together to make
this brave show in the Corso that had
been their heritage from the past.
Of course, while this same brave
show was heing made in the Corso
and the Pincian, everybody who
wasn't in "Who's Who in Rome,"
gathered along the edges of the street
or along the driveway and watched
it all go hy. But now all this is a
tiling of the past, lt has not come
so much through thc crumbling away
of the old aristocracy's fortunes as

The time of the Assize Court yes

Crown prosecutor, the case was heard

fui old negro slave loaded the four
barrels ot money Into a farm wagon
and drove away. The next day
Judge N. B. Moore, who now resiles
at Haskell, met them in the Choctaw
nation, and tliey told him their errand. Marshall showed him the barrels of money and he saw the coin.
Upon their return from hiding the
fortune Marshall told his wife where
tliey had left the money, but the secret was confided to no one else. As i
the war progressed Marshall took his
family further south, going to Tex-
as. He died in Texas and his wife |
survived him only a few months. Tlie
negro slave to whom the secret had
been confided, died a short time later
and the secret perished.
After the war the Marshall negroes
drifted back to the old plantation and
took up the land under the treaty of
lRiili as freedmen allotments. Ben
Marshall's son took up an allotment
on part of the plantation, but soon
left the spot of painful memories and
went further north In the territory.
His son Ben Marshall, 3rd. was born
near Fort Gibson and Is now living
at ClarkevIUe, Okla.

Hidden During Civil V.*ar Fifty Years
If the clew developed proves authentic, the fortune in gold and silver buried during the civil war by
Ben Marshall, one of the wealthiest
Indians in the old Indian Territory,
and lost for nearly fifty years, may
be recovered and the membera of the
Marshall family, now in moderate
circumstances, restored to their former prestige, says a Mu��.ogee, Ok la"
homa, exchange.
J. J. Ayers, an aged man, came
from Texas to Oklahoma, hoping to
pereuade some one fo'furnish the $100
necessary to enable him to go to a
treasure cave that he says he can
locate without trouble, though he has
not heard of it in forty years. Ayers
had read in the newspapers of the
search instituted for an old Indian
named Keyes lor a treasure cave In
Southwest Missouri where the Indians buried silver bullion. The Oavc
that he knows of is evidently not the
same as that Keyes is searching tor.
but Avers' description of the treasure and the locality coincides with
the ���description of the barrels of money that Ben Marshall buried during
the war.
Ayers' story is that forty years ago
a trapper paid visits to Fort Worth,
Texas, from the Indian Territory,
with pockets filled with gold and silver money In American .and Spanish
coins. He went on periodic sprees,
and several times described to Ayers
the source of his wealth, saying that
he had found a cave beside a stream
in the Territory filled with gold and
silver. Finally the trapper left Fort
Worth for another excursion to his
treasure cave and never returned.
Ayers, who had regarded the story
as perhaps the vagary of a drunken
man. forgot the treasure cave until
it was recalled to his memory by the
story of the Indian treasure seekei,
Ben Marshall was one. of tlie
wealthiest halfbreeds in the Indian
nation. lie had a big plantation between the Arkansas and the Verdigris
rivers, many slaves and herds nf cattle and horses. IVjfore the civil war
the government paid the Indian annuities in gold and silver coin, and
Marshall, trading with the Indians
accumulated money enough to he
stowed away in barrels in his plantation house. When the civil war broke
out he had four barrels filled with
gold and silver in the house. Many
of th<> old Indians still living remember  havine  seen tills monev.
The Indians bid their wealth in
every available place during the war.
and Marshall planned to hide his gold
and sliver.   One night he aud a fa:t:-.-
