the distinction of having a price oh

offer of half a million dollars for Sun
Yat Sen, alive or dead, but preferably dead. This sum is made up of a

An English Education.
Accounts differ as to Sen's birth- ���
place. Some say that he was born in
Hawaii, but the accepted ^version is
that Hong Kcng was his native city.
When he was a mere youth he was
studying medicine under an English
doctor In Hong Kong, and thence he
went to England, where his medical
education was completed. He returned to China and began to prac-'
tise, meeting with considerable opposition, for twenty years ago China
regarded the new medicine as a sort
of witchcraft. Ju3t when Sen began to be a revolutionist is not clear,
but it was not long after he had been
to England, for no intelligent Chinese could have experienced English
civilization and not realize the great
need of reform at home. The
ciiances are that Sen preached revolution all the time he was practising
medicine, and that his first converts
were his llrst patients. His first Idea
was  for    reform    through    peaceful

M -   III Ml ��� td
Value of Mineral Output Estimated at
Twenty Million Dollars.
The annual report on tbe mineral
resources and production of Alaska
for 1911 ls now in preparation,. but
the Pacific Builder and.. Engineer
gives a piellminary estimate, whicb
Is believed to be not over 10 per cent.
in error.
The value of tbe total mineral output of Alasita ln 1911 ls estimated at
$20,3/0,000, compared with $16,883.-
078 In lyiO. The gold output la 1911
is estlmatel that tbe Alaska mines
produced 22.900.000 pound* oi ".opper
in 1911, valued at about $2,830,000;
In 1910 their output was 4,241,089
pounds, valued at $538,695. The silver production ln 1911 is estimated
to have a value ot $2zo.0oi>, eonii.k.e.��
with $85,236 for 1910. The value of
all other mineral products in 1911,
including tin, marble, gypsum and
coal, was about $170,000, an Increase
over that of 1910.
By using the above estimates for
tbe output of 1911, tbe total value o:
Alaska's mineral production since
1880, when mining first began, is
found to be, in round numbeis, $206,-
mOO.000, of which $195,950,000 is lep-
resen'ed by the value of the gold out
put. The total production of copper
ln Alaska since 1901, when systematic
mining of tbis metal began, is aoout
66,700,000 pounds, valued at about
General Conditions Favorable.
Tbe favorable showing made by the
Alaska mining industry during the
year is due, nrat, to the very laite
output of copper, and, second, to the
greater production, compared with
1910, of tbe world placer mines in
the Innoko-Iditard region. Aside from
the increased production, the most
Important event of the year was the
opening of the Copper river region by
the completion ot the railway into it.
The lndust:ies already stimulated by
this line strikingly Illustrate the Importance of railway communication
to Alaska. As no progress was mad��
in the opening of the coal flelds, the
needs for cheap fuel in Alaska are
! being met. by tne substitutes of oil-1
! burning for coal-burning engines. The
! importation or California crude oil H
tapidly Increasing, with a corresponding decrease in the use of coal. Some
new drilling was carried on in the
Natalia oil field during 1911, one or
two old wells being reopened, and a
small production made. The oil was
refined and the gasoline sold in tbe
local market
i    Although   most   of the   gold   still
1 comes  from  the placers,  much  progress was made during 1911 in pav-
I ing the way for an Increased output
from  auilferous    lodes.    This    *oik
I was carried on in most of the   goli-
beaiing areas of Alaska, but tne most
' notable advances were in the Juneau,
\ Valdez,     Kenai     Peninsula,   Willow
Cieek and Fairbanks districts. Aside
from the increase in  copter  mining
the advances made in develojing golu
lode  mines is  tho most eucciiiatang
feature    of    the    year's    o'.erations.
, Dredge mining also made great pro-
| gress,  notably   In   the  Nome   region,
lt  la   estimated  that,   ln  the  entire
territory 22 dredge*    were    operated
tor the whole or part of the open season  ot 1911.    In aidltlon    to    those
1 operated, at least half a dozen were
, ln process of construction,
j Transportation   Facilities   Increasing.
Ab improvement    In  transportation
Is the most important element in the
advancement of the mining industry,
the progress of the year in this   respect will be briefly summarized. The
Copper Kiver and Northweste.n railway  was completed  to Kennkot    lu
April, Villi   There was no other railway construction    in Alaska    during
the  year, though some railway surveys weie made.   At the close of 1911
there   are   465   miles   of   railway   In
the territory, compared with 371 miles
In 1910.   This mileage   ls dlsti Ibuted
among nine different railways from
five to 196 miles in length.   The existing  railways  emphasize  the need
of additional transportation facilities.
The most urgent need ls tor a railway
to connect   an   open   port   on   the
Paciflc wltb the Yukon basin.   Until
such a line ls built only the richest
placers of the Interior and~only   the
most fa vol ably located lodes can be
profitably exploited.
The Alaska road commission continued its important work of making
mining districts accessible by the
building ot wagon roads and trails.
Probably the most Important undertaking of tbls kind was the comple
tion of the winter trail from Seward,
on the Pacific seaboard, to the Iditarod placer district. This not only
serves several placer mining camps,
but also shortens the winter route to
Nome by some 500 miles. Work was
also continued on the Valdez-Falr-
bsnks trail, which can now be used
not only as a winter route, but also
as a wagon road ln summer. A cut-
oft was built which connects the
wagon road with Chitlna, on the
I winning party hia reward would be
'certain.   The man wbo is able to be
at the same time at tbe bead ot both
opposing parties,   and to be   in   the
position of winner no matter whicb
side falls, possesses dexterity ot the
highest  order.    That  is  the  happy
situation of Yuan Shi Kai at the piesent   time.   Of   course,   a   mis-step
would ruin him,  but it wouid rum
{any other big man    ln China,    and
Yuan's ultimate Liumph would be, in
| spo. ting parlance, "a good bet."
Premier or President?
His career up to tbe present tlmo
has   been a  remarkable  one,    aud
chiefly because it has revealed a man
able to'enjoy the confidence of bath
sides in any conflicts.   Thi ough it all
he has enjoyed the confidence of the
foreigners, and this is at the jottom
of hit strength.   At the prebent t me,
for example, he is piemier of china,
yet be Is trusted by the revo.uiiouists,
ani  was  offered  the  presidency   ot
the Chinese republic by   them.   The
prince regent realizes that Yuan is
a reformer at heart, and yet he was
obliged to appeal to him to save t.ie
country.    The hesitation of Yuan before he accepted the imitation  was
a master stroke of diplomacy.^   Uau
he hastened to Pesing he would have
forfeited   the   regard  of  the  revolutionists.    Had he tefused to answer
the summons he would have incurred
the enmity of the Chinese loyalist*.
He paused impressively,    and    then
when he made his move be did to
with tbe blessing of both parties.
With the Boxers.
Yuan flrst attracted attention by a
demonstration     of    patriotism,     or
treachery, according to the point of
view, when the Boxer agitation was
in its earlier stages.   He was at that
time mayor a small town ln Shantung, and he beheld  most   of    liis
friends enrolling    themselves ln the
Boxer society.   The non-Boxers were
! ln a minority, and yet Yuan was wise '
' enough to see that their cause was '
I doomed to failure.    To have said so '
; openly would have been to risk bis ;
| life.    So    he remained    silent.   The'
I time came, however, when he bad to
j take his stand. . He was Invited   lo
; Join  the brotherhood  and    help rid
| China  of   the   foreign   devils.    Fortunately for him, in Its earlier stages
the   Boxer  agitation  was  ministered
to by   the grossest superstition.   For
instance, lt was believed that  when
once a Chinaman had become a Boxer
he became at once tbe ward of the
Chinese gods, who would render him
immune from the effects of foreign
inventions such as rifles, and lt was
this belief that gave Yuan bis chance-
- Exploding a Superstition.
In response to    the invitation, he
said he would gladly Join tho society
and help exterminate the foreigne s
if he could be certain that the miraculous    effects    attributed  to    th.i
Boxer Initiation ceremonies were   to
be depended on. Me was assured that
there could be no doubt on tt Ja rotift,
and  finally he Induced the most active of the Boxers In the town to give
him a demonstration.   Yuan produced
a rifle, and the Boxer stood a   tew
yards  away.    The  mayor   then    explained that it was at the request of
hia friend the Boxer that he was maW
Ine the teat, and that he considered It
a mere matter of form anyway.    8o'
hc   took   careful   aim,  and   shot hi 3
friend   thi ough   the  heart.    He  was
filled with grief at the accident, and
had the victim buried at the expensrf
of the town.    Later on, as the people
began to think the matter over, they
concluded that there were disadvantages connected with the Boxer business, after all, and that they would
be better not   to mix  themselves up
in it.
. The Ailing Leg.
News of the Incident reached thc
Dowager Empress and greatly delighted her, and Yuan's subsequent
efforts In behalf of the foreigners
marked him out for honor at tho
court.   Gradually he rose,

Newport Beach, Cal., Jan. 14.���
Three bandlta, equipped with large
quantities of nitroglycerine, destroyed
the supposedly burglar-proof safe of
the state bank of Newport, at 2:30
o'clock this morning, but in a battle
with citizens, who were aroused by
the explosions, they were forced to
drop their loot, amounting to about
$2000, before they got outside of the
hank building.
One of the robbers was wounded,
but all escaped, although they are now
closely pursued t>y a posse of Orange

At a religious ceremonial of the

Vurbar there is no need to move any
of the instruments of the actual coronation from their resting place in
the Wakefield Tower of the Tower of
London. In connection with the safe
keeping of the regalia in the Tower it
is interesting to recall that before
the Wakefield Tower waa recently altered and made absolutely burglar-
proof, an old passage waa found leading from the tower to St. Thomas'
Tower, which faces the river frost.
It was discovered that it would have
been possible for a burglat, by the
collusion of a servant, to obtain entry
through St. Thomas' Tower into the
old passage and ao into the Wakefield
If the burglar had made hia entry
after the cloaing hour on Saturday he
would have had all Saturday night
and Sunday to work undisturbed at
the locks of the iron cases holding the
regalia. This condition of thing* was
Realized when a thorough examination
waa made of the Wakefield Tower after the theft ol the Dublin crown jewels. Alterations were made immediately. The passage was done away

Hall secreted himself behind an oil

at them. The shot from the big
bore gun spattered the wall over the
head of the robber who was carrying
the bank cash in a horse's nosebag.
He dropped the-sack and fled. Hall
fired again as the robbers sped down
the street and one of the fugitives
tumbled over. Money and parts of a
burglar's kit of tools rolled out of his
pockets, but he vyas helped up by his

the lack ot communication,'' delayed
the beginning of the chase by offloe;��

In their haste the bandits left behind tbem large quantities of nitroglycerine lying about in the vicinity
of the looted bank.'- <    i  ������
When Charles Wallace, cashier of |
the Institution, arrived, he found two
bottlea ot the explosive standing on
the table in the directors' room. An
oilskin roll, lying just outside the
front door of the bank, contained several more bottles. I
The presence of the highly dangerous bottles deterred every one from
entering the bank after Wallace made
his discovery, and constables later established a cordon about the place to
await the coming of detectives, who
later joined in the chase for the robbers.

Toronto, Jan. 14.���The stock exchange firm of MesBrs. E. R. Warren
& Co. suspended payment toiay with
$125,000 liabilities. The firm has been
heavily interested in Porcupine shares,
and a slump in these is Baid to account for the failure.
Some time ago Mr. Warren joined
a syndicate which bought the Davidson claim ln the Porcupine district
and turned it over to a crown-chartered company, taking stock in payment. The firm have since then been
endeavoring to make a market for ibe
stock, and tbe failure to do so, due
entirely to tbe general collapse of
Porcupine stocks, is believed to hive
been the final cause of their suspension. Another factor ln causing the
suspension is believed to have been
the drain of tbe New York office,
which the flrm bas been maintaining
at a big expense.

A Tale of
Orr's Island
e  Conrrtfht by American Prass Aim-   ���
elation, 1911.
! Daring the summer of Id��� Constance
Phillips, an art student, chose the
coast of Maine for a field in whicb to
paint pictures. There ls an Island on
that coast which has been made preeminent among its neighbors by a
celebrated authoress, who located one
of her stories there. HafMet Beecher
Stswe's "Pearl of Ore's Island" bss
been read by mllllons^of ber fellow
countrymen, thus familiarizing them-
wltb st least tbe name of tbe locality.
Mlss Phillips, being alone, stopped at
a small hotel near the house In which
Mrs. StOWe wrote her story, lu the
morning ufter breakfast she would
tnke her artist'* paraphernalia and
start out In seun-h of a si-ene tn transfer to i-UDvut Itui sbe found tiutlitnn
of the marlue order Hint pleased her
Wore thHU Hie vli-w looking eastward
Irom the lower em) of the Island Hi*
sri-udlnp au lupllm'. she found berselt
Just abore n rocky shore overlooking
a strip or Cuhco buy. There she set
up ber ensel nnd. embracing In ber
subject a hit nr the rocks and s bit of
the ocean, Imtuu her work.
Constance palmed all the moraine.
but uiironiinatelv her ability to transfer to canvas what she saw wns not of
ii high order. Like many aspirants for
success In art sbe felt it. but was unable to express It What she bad
placed on the canvas disappointed her.
Bhe was looking at her work ruefully
when sbe heard o step behind ber and.
turning, saw u man descending through
tbe wild grass and weeds. Aa be passed ber be lifted his cap and. casting a
glance at ber picture, paused, looking
from lt to Its subject.
"You have selected quite an attractive view." be said. "Your discrimination ln tbls respect ls proved by
your having cboeen tbe best tbere is
- rr fear It Is all discrimination." said
Constance, viewing ber work lugubriously.
"You mean tbat yon are not gifted
with the artistic touch?"
"1 fear I am not."
"A good deal depends upon tbat
which for tbe want or a better word
1 shnll call tbe trickery ot art. There
are all sorts of methods of producing
effects wbich. though ln themselves
mechanical, tend to successrul painting. Judging from tbls bit of work. 1
fancy you bave something to learu in
this respect."
"For Instance, this Wt of rocky cHU
ls depicted against thnt wood across
the water. The cliff ls of a dark
brown, the wood a dark green, two
dark substances, the one directly behind tbe otber. You must make one
of tbem of a different shade from
what It Is. Tbe rock, being In the
foreground, is the most Important.
You have got its color to perfection.
The wood, being distant, would bear
more blending with its neighboring
objects. It will bear lightening,
which will darken the rock!"
Coustam-e mixed Borue colors on her
palette, gave the wood beyond the
rock a dull nnd wus quite pleased with
the Improvement. Tbe rock stood out
boldly, while the wood uppeured ut
Its proper distance.

Constance noticed that be was pale
and thin. Hls eyes, which were large
and expressive at any time, seemed
more so In his invalid condition. She
thanked bim for his suggestion and.
removing ber canvas, folded ber ensel
and her stool, put her palette and
paint ln ber box and was starting
away when the stranger said:
"Have you to carry tbose things
"To tbe village, about a mlle up the

"1 expect to."
"Then it ls not necessary that you

while she carried the rest, and they

Of those summer cottages containing
only bads, chairs and cheap tableware
���which city folk rent either for a few
weeks ln summer or for "the season."
There was a broad porch on three
Fides of lt, and Its occupant, setting.
down the artist's materials on tbe
porch, (said: ���       ��;
"They may remain here til! you return ln tbe afternoon, and lf you don't

"Vou are very kind." Constance re-
I lied    "Ho you live here all alone*"
"For the present 1 go back te the

"I wlll relieve you of my belongings

"If it ls not necessary thnt you

���ra* delighted jvft'j !ts   Sbe was sur
\,flsei af her lalSuf.
Cutistance'l Instructor told her that
If she would take her picture to a
prominent nrt dealer In Hoston he
thought she wouid get a good price
for ll. He snld he would meet ber
there on a certain dnte and Introduce
her. On the dny named sbe took ber
work to the store, but her Instructor
felled to meet her. She showed the
dealer the picture, aud he studied It
"Hid yon paint lt?" be asked.
"Certainly.    Wby to you ask that?"
"Because I would have sworn tbat
was u Frank Klllot "
Taking up n small mlcroscooe. be
hruugbt it to heur on a lower corner.
���It Is an Elliot." he said.
"What do you mean?" exclaimed the
Hstonlshed Constance.
The dealer handed her the microscope, and sbe brought It to bear on
tbe picture. Tbere sbe saw "P. Elliot
"Wbo is Frank Elliot?" sbe asked
"Our principal American marine
painter Just at present"
"Wbere does he live?"
"Nowhere. He's been trying to regain bis health at Orr's island, 1 believe."
Constance was dumfounded.
"Wbat value do you place upon tbe
picture?" she asked.
Tbe dealer pondered a few moments,
then said:
"H Is worth about $1,200"
"(ioodness gracious!" exclaimed the
girl, ber breath quite taken away.
At that moment Constance's Instructor walked Into tbe shop.
"Hello. Klllot." said tbe dealer.
"Heen trylug to fool me again, bare
you? You can't do lt 'I'd know your
work In a dungeon."
The sequ-jl to tbls story ls very brief
and very prosaic. Frank Elliot nnd
Constance, his wife, now In summer
occupy the cottage at Orr's island,
where be pslnted tbe ptctnr*
lng we are fresh snd can do ear best
work. Besides, wben we have Inat
finished a bit of work we are liable te
either undermine or overvalue It II
yon leave wbat yon hare done this
morning without looking at It GUI tomorrow you wlll be able to put a much .
better estimate upon tt tbsn now, Ju#f"
after working upon it."      ...,-'
"And if 1 leave It bere-1 can't sec
it can 1?" -*���*
"No, you can't   And In tbe morning
when  you  art  fresh  you  will  know
just what lt  requires.    Yon see. tbe
: course 1 advise is' benedclai in more
j ways'than one."
-Constance left blm and. striking s
.''disused road through tbe pines, walk-
I ed away toward Harpswell village.
i After dinner Instead of going bark to
i her work sbe took a siesta snd later
I a tour of observation In search of ob-
! Je>'ts to transfer to canvas.
Tbe next morning was clear snd
j crisp. Constance walked to tbe rot-
I tage where sbe bud left ber belongings nnd, approaching, saw ber eusel
set np on tbe nortb porch and ber picture resting on It She was far better pleased wltb wbut sbe had dons
tban sbe bad been lbe day before.
Just tben tbe stranger came oul. and
sbe said to blm:
"You are an admirable teacher.
Last evening I was disposed to throw
my work into tbe flre. Tbls morning
1 am very well satisfied with It"
"I'erbaps It is because yoa see lt
tbrough rested eyes."
Constance took her picture down to
tbe position she bad occupied the day
before and began her day's work. She
was ugain disappointed. It seemed
to ber when noon cntne tbnt her picture looked much ns It had done tbe
day before. She carried lt up to tbe
stranger's cottage He saw ber coming
and went out lo meet ber.
"I fear thnt I hare spoiled It." she
said to blm. "This morning- It was
tine: now It in worse than it was yesterday."
"I'ut It away from you again." he
said, "till tomorrow morning.'*
"I will leave lt wltb you till to
morrow morning If you will kindly
keep it. but I know that during the
day I bave Injured It rather than Improved It. I am heartsick over It."
Growing confidential: "1 am very poor
nnd have hoped soon to be able to
make my living In this way. If the
taore work I put on a picture the
worse it is, what cbaacy I* there ror
me?" -��� *���
"We must all meet discouragement,"
he replied, "but when we ere In lis
tolls there ls u ki:id fairy called rest
thut unwinds tbem,'and wben we ure
refreshed we take Uold ayalu with
renewed  vigor."
So Constance left her picture with
hei new found friend, went to her
room and lounged the rest of the day.
In the morning she found ber picture
Ugain set up in au advantageous light,
and again her dissatisfaction with it
of the day before was changed to
I'ay after dny Constance worked on
tier picture, every morning comforted
iiy its appearing to her to oe improved
trom what it was the day before,
every noon fearful lest she bad lost
more than she bnd gained. The
<rrunper taught her many a "trick." ns
he called it. by wliich objects were
brought to their relative position and
striking effects produced. One thing
she knew���taken altogether, the picture was really growing Into something beautiful. She believed that
whkt'she was doing was due entirely
io n subtle influence ber Instructor
exerted over here.
I Hiring this time tbe summer wns
fading Into autumn. The water and
the sky took on a cold hue, and tbe
cottage residents of Orr's Island began
to return to their permanent homes.

all other nations during something
like half a century, in the course ol

gone through enough hardship and

always attended him, and his many

One of Mr. Burleigh's best "scoops"
probably was his interview with Joubert on the eve of the last South
African war. The slow troop train by
which he was traveling was overtaken by s special on which Joubert
snd his staff were going to the front.
Burleigh waited till it was just moving out of the station, and then bluffed the stationmaster into stopping it
by signal, telling him thjt he had
been left behind. The special stopped, and Burleigh got on board���tn

Sangatte, near Cape Grisne2, Calais,
in a 20-foot racing skiff, in the extraordinarily short time, o! 3 hours
50 minutes, was an undergraduate at
Cambridge, he was noted for his unusually liberal-minded views. For example, the Salvation Army in tbe
Varsity town met with fierce opposition. A rowdy antagonistic mob used
to find pleasure in smashing up the
bandsnfen's instrument, and personal violence was not by any tmans ttlj-
inown. This was too much tor a

these, eir William H. White, who waa
tor many years the chiei constructor
of the British navy and who designed the great Miuretania.
While he was director of naval construction in the- British navy, in
which office he served lor manv years,
174 ahipe were built irom his designs. The vessels of this immense
fleet���t'.iey really constituted 12 separate fleets ��� carry 1,510 guns and
have an aggregate displacement of
861.000 tons and an indicated horse
powi.- of 1,400,000. They cost altogeth-
-et ahout $200,000,000.
But that fleet of 174 ships does not
represent all that Sir William White
hat done in naval construction. For
a number of years before he became
director ol construction in the British
navy, he was at the head of the warship department cl one oi the biggest .
ehip building firms in England, and !
ant for him he was not seen ih the
House of Lords lor many yean, and
when he did' make his appearance a
couple of years ago to vote on a division of great importance to his claas
he waa shunned by every one.
A great English landlord, Lord St.
Aldwyn, who is better known by hts
former title of Sir Hichael Hickt-
Beach, even went so far in a debate
aa to declare that Clanricarde't vote
in favor ot a measure was equal to
hall a dozen votes against it, and to
denounce him ai a disgrace to landlordism.
Clanricarde hat not been in Ireland
for at least thirty years, and probably
for a good deal longer. He had not
even the courage to tace Lit tenants,
but left that dangerous work to his
agents, and more than one resigned
rather than carry out his orders.

tageous to him, but he sacrificed it
unhesitatingly to what he considered
his patriotic duty when he was called
aome 35 years ago to direct construction in the British navy. He carried
on that work (or 30 years at a personal  sacrifice, at his  compensation
himself by collecting pictures and
antiques. Although a wealthy man,
he probably spends less on himself
than most clerks, and few oi the people who meet the queer old man in the
garb of nearly a c-ntury ago walking

realize this is the man whose fame as
the worst landlord even Ireland ever
produced is known to all the world.
The pity ol it is that Clanricarde ie
the latt of a race that has been great
in Ireland nearly 700 years, and some
of whose members really served their
country. His name is Hubert George
du Burgh Canning, but the "Canning"
was added a couple of generations ago.
He it therefore the head ol the great
Burke family.
The first of the race in Ireland was
Richard de Burgh, who wa* lord lieutenant in 1227, ar.d who received th*
title of Lojd of Connaught.   His ton
became Earl of Ulster, and four generations   later  the   present   title   wai
created. Other branches of the family
are the Earls of Mayo and Viscount*
of Galway.
I    There   isn't   any   doubt that   Lord

i real  estate   nian   of  Vancouver, and
| was a native of Shawnee, Ohio.   Sha
had live.l  here, however, for twenty-
three years and was 31 years and six
months old.    She married Mr. Wells
Gray on Dec. 15, 1899, and she leaves
her husband with one boy.
