Starvation and Flood Cause
West Huan District of China Scene of
Great Disaster and Loss of Life
���Sealers Imprisoned.
Victoria, Sept. 24.���News of terrible
loss of life, estimates placing the
dead at over 100,000, as a result of
the floods in West Huan, was brought
by the Empress of India today. The
country was like a great tnlund sea,
the higher sections being covered
with corpses washed tfiere. Refugees
who escaped tbe flools arrived in the
cities to find hordes of starving people, and staggering out on to the
roads, the majority to fall by the wayside and die. The receding waters
were followed by disease due to the
dead bodies of men and animals.
Gieat traffic in human beings results
from the disaster, boatloads of girls
being sold for removal to the cities,
and misery beyond description exists

The Japanese sealing schooner
Kalob Maru wa* seized by the Russian patrol cruiser Manjurla, off the
Copper islands, on August 12. according to advices brought by the Empress of India. The sealers were
taken off by an armed patrol party
and imprisoned on the Russian warship and the schooner was towed to
Pftropavalovsk, where the crew was
imprisoned. The Japanese reported
their government that they were
provided  with    food    and    their
ihooner was looted and their person-
effects stolen.

First Meeting of Season Held���Partial
Program for Winter Season  Is
Brings Dewn    Interesting   Specimens
from Deep Water, Including
Wolf Fish.
The B. C. Packers' halibut steamer
Roman completed her fifteenth trip
tbis season on arriving at the city
yesterday from the northern Ashing
banks. Duiing her eight days absence she made a catch of about 110,-
O0P pounds of halibut. Nothing very
eventful transpired during the trip
except the capture of a few interesting marine biological specimens,
brought to the surface from the
depths of the sea on tlie fishing gear.
One of these is a Species of polype, a
member of the nntliozoa family,

coUhleatone. When given to Chief
Engineer Kelly by one Nick, a lisher-
man, it seemed tired, but hy skilful
treatment and a copious supply of
salt water in a bucket it revived
sufficiently to assume the jaunty air
of a company promoter. This rare
specimen is now in the possession of
one of the staff of the News.

The first meeting of the Women's
Educational Club of Columbian college, after the holiday season, was
held at the home of the vlce-presl-
dent, Mrs. C. A. Welsh, on Thursday
evening, September 2i. An Item of
importance was a communication
from the Local Council of Women
asking that the club, as one of the
affiliated societies, assist in the management of the tea rooms during exhibition week. Mrs. Welsh explained
that the tea rooms had been given to
the local council1 on condition that
they were used for the benefit of the
Koyal Columbian hospital and if this
were not done they would be taken
for some other purpose. As the
needs of the hospital are very great
and sometimes as much as $800 is
raised during fair week. It was felt
by all Interested In the hospital that
every effort should be made to use
the rooms tbis year as in for ner
years. The club decided to lake
charge of the rooms for a day which
should be named by the local council
and a soliciting committee was appointed consisting of Mrs. Da,:es,
Mrs. Reid and Mrs. Gifford.
Another matter of importance that
came up for discussion was the literary work to be undertaken by the
club during the winter. Several subjects were suggested such as the
study of psychology, the reading of
Stoddard's lectures, the study of
Canadian authors, but no decision
was reached and the matter was left
in the hands of the following committee, Mrs. Reid, Mrs. Fisher, Mrs.
Hetherington and the lady teachers
of Columbian college.
As this was the first meeting of
the season, no literary program had
been prepared, and the only item of
that nature was a ��� very interesting
letter from Mrs. Sipprell read by Miss
Hitcham, in which Mrs. Sipprell told
something of her travels on the continent and dwelt particularly on her
impressions cf the east end of London.
Tlie members-hip of the club is increasing and the members are look-
lng forward to a series of pleasant
and profitable meetings during the
coming winter.

Net Affected by Failure of Reciprocity
Pact to Pass���Will Go to United
States Free.
Washington, Sept. 22.���John Nor-
ris, chairman of the committee on
paper of the American Newspaper
Publishers' Association, issued a state
ment today showing that the defeat
in Canada of the reciprocity agreement has expanded the free lone for
pulps and paper so as to Include all
favored nations. His statement follows:
"Canada's rejection of reciprocity
raises a question with respect to the
favored nation treaties that is unique.
Culike the items contained in sec��
tion 1 of the reciprocity bill the paper
and pulp clause, which was section 2,
abolished the duty on Canadian pulps
and paper subject only to a Canadian precedent that the pulps and paper must be made from unrestricted
"Section 1 could not go Into effect
until Canada took reciprocal action,
but section 2 became effective on July
26, when the president signed the
reciprocity bill. Canada's vote of rejection will make section 1 Ineffective
but lt wlll not impair the pulp and
paper section which can not be nullified except by a repealing act of congress and such repeal ls highly improbable.
"The Importers of pulps and par
perB from Germany, Norway and
Sweden claim that under the favored
nation treaty, products of these countries are entitled to the treatment
that Canada obtains when the pulps
and paper are made from unrestricted woods and that tbe tariff on those
articles Is automatically abolished
under like conditions."
Treasury department officials say
no similar case has ever arisen in
this country-
Laurier to Lead Opposition.
Ottawa, Sept. 24.���"I would feel
like a deserter were 1 to drop out
now." These were the words of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, when addressing a
numher of newspaper men and personal friends who called at nls office
this morning. From this it appears
tbat Sir Wilfrid will lead the opposition during the next session. He expressed his intention of calling tbo
cabinet ministers together at once
and disposing ot all business it is
neceBBary to deal with before the
resignations of the ministers are
placed In the bands of Earl Grey. A
great demonstration will be given in
honor of Premier-elect TT. L. Borden
on Tuesday night.
Is 8aid that All Stipulations Do Not
Meet Germany's Views Concern-
in  Africa.
Paris, Sept. 24.���The latest reply of
the French government to the German proposals, which was approved
yesterday by President Fallieies, who
received the cabinet at Rambouilet,
waa dispatched to Berlin last night.
A semi-official communication issued yesterday afternoon said the reply showed some slight divergence
trom the text of the German note.
The communication continues: In
the matter of consular courts and
foreign proteges, France, in order to
remove the abuses complained of, desires that not only Germany, but all
the powers shall agree to the revision of the Madrid convention until
French Jurisdiction has be.n completely re-established in Morocco.
Finally, Foreign Minister de Selves
proposes a new wording for the
clause relating to the control which
France agrees to exercise over transport enterprises.
It is hoped that these difficulties
will be eaBlly smoothed over.
Assisted by Belgium Is   Pushing the
Construction of the Transequa-
torial    Railroad.
Paris, Sept. 24.���The Temps publishes an article of especial interest
at this period of the Franco-German
negotiations pointing out the renewed energy with which Germany is
pushing forward the construction of
her African railway lines.
"It is beyond doubt," says the
Temps, "that the Germans liave taken up, on their own account, with the
assistance of Belgian companies, the
colossal project of an African trans-
equatorial railway, which was unfolded by King Leopold before the International Geographical congress, at
Brussels, as Ions ago as 187C, and
which presents itself as the counterpart of the famous English project of
the Cape to Cairo railway."
The unequal development of the
German African lines affords a first
proof of this. Whereas the line from
Ueambara, north of Zanzibar to Tanganyika, only progresses slowly, the
line from Dar-es-Salaam, running
srarMlei to the equator, also towards
Tanganyika, ft two years m advance
ef its program, in 1904 the reichstag
voted the construction ot the line
from Dar-es-Salaam as tar as Moro
goro, 140 miles from the coast.
As soon as Morogoro was reached In the year 1907, the continuation as far as Tabora, nearly six
hundred  miles from the
Business Wilt Be Carried    on    This
Morning in the New Premises,
Which Are Elaborate.
The Canadian Bank of Commerce
will this morning open up for business in their splendid new banking
building on Columbia street, adjoining their former location. While the
new quarters are not entirely completed, the work ls sufficiently advanced in the main floor to enable
the management to carry on the business of the bank.
The second floor, which ls being
fitted up as a dormitory for the banking staff, will not be ready for occupancy for some time. The practice
adopted ln many ot the cities of the
east of having the bank clerks live
In the building, will be followed out
here as far as is possible.
The new home of the bank adjoins
the building which has been occupied
by them for the past few years. As
to interior arrangements and fittings
it is complete in every detail and
presents besides a striking front on
Columbia street. The Interior is richly finished in hardwood and has a
marble blocked flooring. All the fixtures are of the newest designs,
made In mahogany and dull brass.
The rotunda as well as the space for
the staff is well lighted by windows
both on Columbia street and ln the
rear. A commodious vault occupies
the whole east end of the building.
Throughout, an eye has been kept on
the needs of the future, and while
business does not demand such a
pretentious building at present, it
will doubtless be required as the city
increases in size and importance.
It has not been definitely decided
yet to what use the old office on the
corner will be put. The Canadian
Bank of Commerce holds a lease on
it which does not expire untll the end
of the present year.
Rogers Starts Flight.
Elmira, N. Y., Sept. 23.���Aft?r two
attempts, C. P. Rogers left the ground
this morning, and started on his
flight to the Pacific coast. In his first
attempt rough ground prevented a
good start, and in landing some suy
wires were pulled out and a hole
torn in the elevator. The damage
was quickly repaired and Rogers resuming, took wing following the Erie

Colfax, Cal.. Sept. 23.���Leaving the
ground this morning at 0:43 o'clock
Robert G. Fowler, the aviator, after
flying twenty-four miles to Blue Canyon, was forced to give up in his attempt to cross the Sierras with his
biplane. Fowler claims that owing
to the thinness of the air at the
height necessary to go ln order to
cross the Sierras he would require a
stronger engine, the one he has not
being strong enough, and the planes
falling to "bite." His biplane was
tossed around like a toj when he

New York. Sent. 24.���The puMIc
school authorities of New Jeisey
wore called upon yesterday for the
first time In tlie history of the state
to deal with the situation arising
from the refusal of Catherine Aud-
sley, a 14-year-okl girl of Perth Am-
boy, N. J., to salute the American
flag or take the oath of allegiance
during the exercises in her school.
The state school laws compel the salutation of theh flag and the rrne.val
of the oath of allegiance to lt every
morning. The girl refused to comply
with the law, and was sent home by
the school superintendent.
M. F. Audsley. the girl's father, who
ls a British subject, came to New
York and placed the matter before
the British Consul here. Mr. Audsley
said he did not prohibit his children
from paying all the respect due to the
American flag, but he had instructed
them not to take the oath of allegiance to it. The British Consul will
send to the proper authorities in
Perth Amboy papers confirming the
statement that Mr. Audsley's children
are bonda-llde subjects of Great Britain.
Foreigners   Respected.
Peking, Sept. 24.���Foreigners have
not been attacked in the disturbed
province of Szechuen. The leaders
of the agitation against the Chinese
government's policy of building railroads with foreign capital evidently
have Instructed their followers not to
molest foreigners. The obedience of
the natives to these instructions indicates, It is believed, that the movement has behind it the thorough organization from which further troubles may be expected In the   future.

New York, Sept. 24.���The first
l'nited States mail ever transported
bji aeroplane was carried yesterday
from the aviation field on Nassau
Boulevard, Long Island, to Garden
City, a distance of flve miles, by Earl
Ovington on a Bleriot machine. His
flight was the leading feature of the
International meet opening yesterday.
Ovington took only one bag of mail
and held lt between his knees and
when he was over Garden Ctty he
dropped it on the signal of a man
who waved a flag, as pre-arranged.
This bag contained about seventy-five
pounds ot letters and postcards.
The flying contests were mediocre,
the most Interesting being the search
by aviators for .a detachment of the
18th Infantry, United States army,
which had been secreted ln a woods
three miles southeast of the field. Six
of the aviators, Including Tom Sopwith and Graham-White, of England,
Eugene Ely, J. A. D. McCurdy and
Beatty, could not find the soldiers.
Eugene Ely made a spectacular
flight showing the perfect control of
his machine. He dazzled the crowd
by -turning his machine head down
and dropping 300 feet and then checking his flight when near the turf and
floating off.

Vancouver, Sept. 23.���The arrest o'.
a a��an for vagrancy and then to have
him give bail bonds totalling $2000
is a rather unusual experience for
the police of this city. Yesterday
morning both Magistrate Shaw and
Prosecuting Attorney Kennedy were
taken by surprise.
H. A. Holmes was before the court
on the charge of obtaining $5 by
false pretences. The question of ball
arose, and defending counsel remarked that Holmes was already under bonds In connection with a pi lor
charge of vagrancy. The books Bhow-
ed that the ball arranged was $2000.
"I think we had better let him out
on his own recognizance," decf'ed
Mr. Kennedy after a few minutes
hard thinking, in which to digest the
fact of $2000 on the one hand and a
charpe of vagrancy on the other.
"I think so, too," remarked the
court. i
Holmes will be heard in his defence on Tuesday.
anl all patrols, especially in the Interior, are still exercising the greatest vigilance."
Last spring the department re ra:i|f
ped out the pro. ince for flre protection. The main divisions were made
���the Coast district, coming under
the supervision of Mr. Gladwin at
Vancouver, and the Nelson district,
over which Mr. W. H. McGregor bas
charge. The Vancouver district was
sub-divided Into the districts of Victoria, Kitselas. Graham Island and
Fort George, while the Interior country was similarly subdivided into districts. The patrols stretched from
Atlin lake, at the extreme north ot
Bfltish Columbia, to the international
boundary, and from Graham Island to
the Yellowhead Pass. In the Kootenays, where there are many million
feet of valuable timber. Including
some of the finest cedar In North
America, eight districts were mapped
out. an'' Btrong patrpls stationed.
The patrols were given special Instructions to see that the railways
provided the necessary right of-way
through forest country. This was a
matter of greatest importance, as the
majority of the big forest fires have
been caused by sparks from the-
smokestacks of locomotives.
"With thc increase in population
both ln the coast and the interior dis--
tricts of this province, it is probable
that the patrols will have to be
doubled next year," observed Mr.
"It Is costing the government
money to have the country patrolled.

Fifteen Thousand Every Year.
"This Salvation Army is trying to
tan fifteen thousand villages that
every year throw off one family from
each that can not be absorbed. Those
fifteen thousand families are drifting
Into the cities, there to deteriorate or
to force down others less able to
struggle for existence. Those fifteen
thousand families are made up of persons whose life training has been of
an agricultural nature. They woull
make ideal settlers for any new
country, and they could provide the
means of transportation. The Family
Reunion Movement is a good thing,
but it affects the classes residing in
the cities and not the agricultural
class that is most needed in the Dominion today.

Journalists'   Responsibility.
"Yet  the   solution   of   the   whole
question is in the hands of the journalists.    It  ls  a  tremendous  responsibility, and  lt   Is  strange   that   the
keen and brilliant leaders of the press
have not realized It.    There exists a

Invented it. and the 'Renaissance
only came into our vocabulary about
sixty years ago. About art or business it would be almost impossible to
speak, for our artistic or commercial

ln despair on the subject of the
weather, although we might get on
more successfully, we should yet have
to explain what we meant'by a breeze
by atmosphere, by 'fine' weather or
���brilliant' sunshine.
"Apart  from  new    Inventions   and
yet we believe that It has never yet
held an examination to test the powers of thoBe who are going to wield
the greatest weapon in the world. In
all other professions severe tests are
Imposed before a man or woman can
practice. In Journalism every quack
ls allowed to impose his quackery on
the publlc. No man or woman- should

English language.    If the Institute of
nev discoveries, there are a number j Journalists will not take upon itself
of causes for this perpetual change ln
language. in the first place words
get worn out, all the vividness and
expression fade from them, and new
words must be found to do their work.
Others words, fine and beautiful
words are struck by a strange sentence of death, and slowly die away
or only lead a ghostly kind of life in
the archaic language of poetry. Take
for instance words like tarry, abide,
raiment, blithe, cleanse, quench;
these are all good old words familiar
to all, and yet for some reason they
are dying, and probably none of us
have ever once used them in conversation. But the main cause of thla
process of change is to be found in
human nature' itself���our language
changes because life changes; and
lf we do not talk like our ancestors, lt Is because we are not the
same kind of people.
Our Abstract Words.
"Speech ls the garment of human
thoyght, of human nature; and, like
human nature, a part of it Ib stable,
moving slowly or nbt at all. while another part Is undergoing a perpetual
process of transformation. If then
we compare the Elizabethian and our
modern vocabulary. We shall be
struck at once by certain obvious differences between the Elizabethans
and ourselves. Their words are, with
their thoughts, definite and concrete,
ours generalized and abstract. Even
to their abstract terms. Time, Law
and Nature, they give personalities
and almost vlBlble forms. They lived

"If journalism were really turned
into a profession, with the safeguards
of a profession, the results would be
far-reaching. The English language
would secure for Itself a standard of
clarity and purity that every newspaper written in English in any part of
the world would of necessity struggle
to attain. Then, too, an English academy would become a reality, and this
would react on the literary standard.
The value of the French academy to
French journalism Is apparent
enough. The faults of French journalism are obvious, but bad French ls
not among them. Today we are at a
turning point ln the history of the
English language, and it largely depends on the press whether we are to
turn towards decay or towards still
higher literary possibilities than

Inspection made by the sirdar, Gen

the Boy Scouts, Lads' Naval Brigade,

Inspection the different bodies marched past, led by ttie Lads' Naval Brigade.
Gen. Sir Francis Wingate then addressed the hoys, and in the course of
his remarks said he had the highest
opinion of the movement which had
brought about the organizations he

He regarded the traihlng of the national boyhood in discipline, obedience and self-respect as an Immense

Profits in Coal Mining
Some idea of the enormous amount of money accruing from coal
mining may be -gleaned by the. fact that there are resident In British
Columbia a number of millionaires who owe their financial success to
the wealth of coal properties.
They will tell you themselves that a few years ago they acquired
tlie coal land, opened up the same in a small way, and in a very short
* pace of time found themselves independent.
One lady from her ihtefes's in,a coal property on Vancouver
Island received $300,000 per year for ten years, or a total of $3,000 000
. There are many 'men, readers of this paper, who remember the difficulty with which shares in The Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company, at
the Inception of that corporation, were sold for 10c.
They went a-begging at this Insignificant price���yet a very short
while after the Great Northern took up the property and paid $380 per
share, and today It ls Impossible to buy stock where It is tor sale,
except at a big figure. i
These enormous prices for coal shares and these great' profits from
the operation of coal properties arise out of the fact that there is
practically an unlimited demand today along the Paciflc Coast In Western Canada for coal for domestic ahd industrial purtoses.
The supply ls limited to a few mines.
Many of the mines, are, controlled by contracts to American corporations bo that the whole output of these properties is iabsorbed by
American markets.
Although British Columbia has within her boundaries more acres of
profitable coal land than any other similar area of country elsewhere
ln the world, yet unfortunately, through the limited transportation facilities, it is impossible to operate but a very small portion
of the same, and only such properties as are very close to main line
railway or front on navigable river or salt water harbor Is It possible
to mine at a profit.
A limited block of stock In the American-Canadian Coal Company,
Limited, is offered tie public by Capt. Wilbur Johnston, the trustee, at
the opening or ground floor price of '20c per share.
These Bhares have a par value of $1.00 eaah, are fully paid-up, and
That is, when you have paid the 20c each there are no further
calls or oblieatlons on  your part.
It Ib a limited liability corporation, having a British Columbia char
Shares will be issued and allotted in order of receipt of application,
which wdll be numbered and dated as received.
This advertising announcement is to draw the attention of those Interested and advising them to send in their application or call to make
their application at once in person, since in ail probability the limited
issue at 20c will soon be fully subscribed for.
In making your application, address the same to Capt. Wilbur Johnston, Trustee, 421 Columbia street, New Westminster, B.U.
Remember, $20 in cash pays for 100 shares, which, may, however,
be purchased in blocks of not less than 100 by paying $10 cash, and
the balance In' two equal monthly Instalments.
It is advisable for those who are desirous of making some easy-
money by buying the shares at the ground floor price of 20c a share, Ut
buy double or treble the amount of shares they Intend to hold permanently, and wben the price is 40c or 50c a share a tew weeks hence, to
sell out two-thirds or one-half of their holdings, .thus reaping a handsome profit and a proportion of the original buy free of cost to yourself.
Remember the terms are $10 cash���not less than 100 shares���ag
flrst payment on 100 shares, and two payments of $5 in two monthly
instalments.   No further call or obligation.
$10 cash handles 100 shares; $100 handles 1000 shares.
The profit at 40c a share on shares bought at 20c is $20, and on
1000 shares the profit is $200.
This is an exceptional opportunity to become identified with what
is certain to be one of the active shipping coal mines of B. C. In the.
very near future.
About the Coal.
There Ib absolutely no question about the coal in the property, since
hundreds of tons crop to the surface at the foreshore of the propeity
in the form of miniature Islands black as ebony, and stretching almost
aB far as the eye can reach.
The property Is held by virtue of a crown grant trom g>\ernment
and represents the highest known title to land in Canada and carries
with it not only the coal and oil in the property, but includes also ttio-
surface and timber rights.
This coupled with the fact that there   is a landlocked   deep   water-
harbor at Masset Inlet affording water  transportation  to all  points on
the Paciflc Coast surely represents an investment of exceptional merit.
. Call at the office of the Trustee for full particulars.    Read the Engineer's report and view(the maps and plans.   It's worth while.     /

Word reached here by the Makura
that the merchants of New Zealand
complain that the freight rates between Auckland and Vancouver are
"absurdly high," and In taking the
matter up with the Union Steamship
company of New Zealand the merchants made comparisons viith the
freight rates by direct steamers to
the United Kingdom from New Zealand ports, and those of the Auckland-Vancouver route, pointing out
that the latter rates, over, a shorter
run, were much higher than those
for London or other United Kingdom
Charles Holdsworth, general manager ot the Union Steamship company
of New Zealand, described the comparison as "distinctly unfair."
"You can not," Mr. Holdsworth explained, "fairly compare rates by a
fast, matl passenger 15-knot aervlce,
with those by a 12- knot (or less) cargo aervlce. '
"When the trade grows sufficiently
to warrant the building of such large
cargo carriers as are ln the New Zealand-United Kingdom trade, and
large and regular cargoes of auch

With the memory ot a big local
bank robbery still fresh ln their
minds, renders of the World wlll be
more than usually interested in the
story of a noted ex-bandlt and outlaw
who arrived in the city and will lecture here before proceeding on a
globe-encircling tour in which he will
lecture upon his experiences as a
train robber before audience In Australia, Japan, China, India, Afiica and
This singular man is George Son-
tag, and he has heen delivering a
series of lectures all over the country. Previous to 1RH2 when he entered upon bis career of crime Son-
tag for eleven years followed tbe honest and peaceful pursuit of a railroad
construction man iu Manitoba. Then
he took to the road and essayed the
quick route to wealth by a series of
more or less desperate robberies that
covered a period of more than three
years. At Western Union Junction,
Wis., and at Kaaota, Minn., Sontag
and his accomplices pulled off successful holdups and got safely away
with the booty. Then three other
robberies of lesser importance were
perpetrated in California. It was at
Colli., Cal., in 1893 that the greatest
of these took place, the outcome of
which was the capture of George Son-
tag, wbo was convicted on circumstantial evidence ot the train robbery,
for which he received a life sentence.
Sontag was Incarcerated in the Folsom prison and wltb some other life-
term men made an unsuccessful attempt to escape, in which some of the
prison warders were killed. After
serving nearly fifteen and a half year,
of hi. sentence Sontag wa. pardoned
not long ago, and 1. now on a lecture
tour of the world, a. previously
Mr. Sontag 1. a man of some 50
yeara of age, of medium height and
rather stoutly built, with a pleasant
florid countenance. In appearance he
1. far from being the type of man
popularly associated ln the public
mind with holdup, and train robberies. He has been rendered permanently lame ln consequence of shot
wounds received ln the flght. which
followed upon the robberies and hs.
been wounded ln the ankles, legs,
thighs and back.
Mr. Sontag delivers his lectures ln
a very forcible and convincing manner and is certainly well worth hearing.
His lecture is illustrated with beautifully colored slides taken from actual photographs of the events, and
he gives some very good advice upon
the futility of following a career of
crime. In Impressing upon his audience the fact that a criminal Ib bound
sooner or later to be brought to account for his crimes, and that It usual"
ly means the spending of the best
years of one's life in prison. He also
dwells upon the pain and suffering
which such a life ts bound to cause
to parents and relatives, and the
shame and humiliation which it
brings upon them. He mentions Incidentally that the profits of the
crimes are very small, ln reality, and
that the $15.(100 which were the proceeds of the train robberies In which
he was concerned, cnlv amounted to
25 cents a day when divided over the
whole period of the robberies and Imprisonment.
In the big Collis holdup Sontag's
brother and a man named Evans were
his accomplices, George Sonta* nnd
Evans performing the actual holdup
and Sontag's brother looking after the
team of horses. They all succeeded
In eettlng clear away with the proceeds of the robbery, but two days
later George Sontag was arrested on
suspicion. It was supposed that the
robberies were the work of the Son-
tag brothers and the sheriff and a
posse visited the brothers' house
where Evans was also stopping. In
the altercation which followed the
sheriff's visited Evans opened fire up-
cn the Posse and seriously wounded
the sheriff and one of his men.
Evans had not been suspected up
till this time, but the shoottne affair
proclaimed his guilt. Evans and
George Sontag's brother took the
sheriff's visit Evans opened flre lir*.
lng fled at the commencement of the
shooting affray, and made off. They
returned to the bouse late the same
night and one of the sheriff's men who
had been lying ln wait ln ca��e the
robbers should return, opened fire on
ttw�� bandits, but onlv succeeded in
ktlllne the horses. They succeeded
ln getting away to the mountains end

t'ie Collis holdun, with a reward of
$12,000 out for their capture.
They were eventually run to earth
at Young', cabin on June 12, 1893. by
the sheriff and a posse of men, and
in the battle of Young's cabin which
ensued, Evan, killed two of the posse
and three more were wounded, the
two outlaws once more evading capture for the time belns. Thev we'e

In Fez should exist at the very door

"The story is this: Lamta is a pretty

of the shrines of his ancestors and

"Japan is harder to formulate than
either China or India, and no one who
knows either of them dares to generalize. On the whole, however, 1 come
nearest   understanding   things     here
when   I   liken  them   to   tho   Renaissance.    There was a wonderful  high
old   civilization,   curiously     dlffoient
from uny in Europe, but in some respects singularly like that ot Greece.
Unlike Greece, It was politlcaly stable
untll forced for self-preservation  Into
contact, If not conflict, with the western world.    Thus'it could survive only
by absorbing western culture in some
such mood as that in which Petrach
drank  in  that  of  antiquity.   Yet  it3
character   was   so   firmly   established
and its own  ancestral  tradition  was!
bo  passionately      cherished     that  at '
heart Japan is still  wholly devotedly
Japanese.    Aiul   this  means  not  imperial in impulse���at least, as we understand the  word.    Japan,  I   think,
still have the Intelligence to perceive
that the true source of her national
power   has   been   the   purity   of   her
blood and    the   concentration    of its
sphere of Influence.
"For two reasons Korea is necessary. The Immense increase in population exceeds the capacity of the Islands: and more threatening still, the
whole of Japan which I have sean is,
to all appearance so geologically rotten that you can almost anywhere
start a landslide with a walking s ick.
At any moment you fe?l a catastrophe
might shake half the country out of
habitable condition. Beyond the scope
j?f thfae inexorable impulses to expansion no Japanese desires to expand. Thevb are few, 1 believe, who
do not regret tho need which came
fifty years ago to end the wondrous
isolation by which the Siioguns preserved the national integrity; but this
regret Is like that of loyal Americans
that the Revolution had to be the
price of our nationality, and thus we
spring from a disrupted Biitish Empire instead oT from one so powerful
ns to control  the modern  world.
"I grow unintentionally declamatory. Some words In your letter,
however, warrant me, I hope, in adding that, so far as I can observe, the
course of the present government in
England has undoubtedly diminished
British prestige in the Ear East. Of
course. I have been thrown mostly
with Americans and their sympathizers. What startles me, ho we vor, ts
that in China and Japan the casual
traveler is so little aware of British
presence. Instead of Imperial dominion, British influence here seems
to such passing eye as mine to stand
for little more than that of any other
foreign power. In Japan almost as
much emphasis was put on our American Foruth of July as had been
put a few days earlier on the Coronation. It seems to me as if Radicalism were really shaking the foundation of the Empire."

power of recalling various memories

Impossibility to exercise II Memory lv,

and In some cases of advanced alcoholism tbere ls absolute forgetfulness ot
wide gaps of years; a man may be
nuable to remember anything from tbe
last flre minutes back for twenty years
and then remember back to childhood.
Tbe memories of childhood are more

The Radium Institute in Riding-
hoiiEe street, London, the most fully-
equipped institution of Its kind in tha
worH, was or.ened a few days ago
without any formal ceremony for thn
treatment of patients. A number of
rases havo already been treated, and
though the officials do not claim to ba
able to work miracle, they believe
that with their methods they have
every chance of success ln certain
cases of cancer which are not too
far advanced, some cases of ulcer, and
certain forms of eczema and other Intractable skin diseases. The institute
has been established owing to the
generosity of Viscount Iveagh and
Kir Ernest Cassel, who acted upon
an Idea emanating from King Edward.
The Object of the Institute.
The amount of radium in the institute Is perhaps half a teaspoonful.
and is probably worth ��50,000. The
quantity is more tban tbat possessed
by any other institution ln Uie world.
Tbe object of the institute Is to treat
patients whp probably cannot be operated upon and who from other
causes require the use of radium.
Thirty patients can be treated at a
The patients are divided into two
classes���those wbo pay and those
who are recommended by a doctor for
free treatment. There is no difference made between them ln the manner of treatment.
There is a room that can be darkened. Thl. ls for the examination of
tbe throat Electric lights that grow
brillant and dim at will and strange-
shaped taps tbat can be turned to
let water flow with a touch of the
elbow to prevent possible contamination with the bands are among the
novelties in these rooms. Upstairs,
there are twelve rooms where patients undergo the application of the
radium rays.
The Wonders of Radium.
Nothing more wonderful can be
imagined that the little square or circular trays of metal containing speck.
of radium ln shellac varnish wbosa

Stale Bread.
Tt is generally supposed that the
stalcness oi bread arises lrom its becoming actually drier by the gradual
loss of water, but this is not the
case. Stale bread contains almost
exactly the same proportion of water
as new bread after it has beeoma
completely cold. The change is merely in the internal arrangement of the
molecules of the bread. A proof ol
this is that if we put a stale loaf into
a closely covered tin, expose it for
jhalf an hour or an hour to a heat not
exceeding that of boiling water ancl
.'then allow it to cool, it will be restored in appearance and properties
practically to the state of the new

There are stories which will  stand
resuscitation, and   there   are   stories \
which  will not.    Personally  I  always
liked this one of Frank Fogarty's:
"A man was walking along the road
with a dog and a gun, and an automobile came along and killed the dog.
The owner of the automobile gave the
owner oi the dog $5 toi the loss of Uie
dog   and   then   asked:
" 'Where were you going with the
dog and gun?'
" 'Down to the woods to shoot the
dog,' the man answered."���Exchange.
A Cruel Toy.
A singular toy, invented for the delectation of Tippoo Sahib and found
in his palace at the taking of Seringa-
pat am, is in the form of an automaton
tiger, life size, represented in the act
ot devouring a British soldier, who
lies prostrate under its jaws. Inside
this automaton is a rude organ, which,
when turned by a handle, emits
sounds in imitation of the growls ol a
tiger and the moans of the dying victim.
Ancient Preservation of the Dead.
Herodotus gives a good description
of the manner in which tho early
Ethiopians preserved their dead.
Having thoroughly dried the corpse,
they plastered it over with a paste
made of gypsum and then painted
the face and exposed parts so as to
make them look as natural as possible. Dead bodies served in this
manner remained intact for hundreds
nf years.
