OMAHA  REWARD
Quest for Cudahy  Kidnapers
Not to be Abandoned.
$25,000 FOR KIDNAPPERS
City Council of Omaha to  Relieve
M«\ Cudahy of Paying the
Reward.
At a special meeting of the city
c.icncil of Omaha, Neb., that body
adopted a concurrent resolutioi
offering a rewnrd of $25,000 for
the arrest and conviction of the
persons who abducted Edward
Cudahy, jr., on the night ol December 18. For the arrest and conviction of one the resolution provides a reward of $8,000, -for two
$15,000 will be paid, and the whole
is offered for the three principals.
The members of the council did
not deliberate long, and the vote by
which the resolution was passed
was unanimi. us.
The council also asked a Mr.
Cudahy to withdraw his offer of a
reward of an equal amount for the
capture of the criminals.
The object of the city's offer is
largely to relieve Mr. Cudahy and
his family of the fear of reprisals
from the bandits, and to remove
from the police and detectives the
restraint they have felt in trailing
the bandits on account o thc very
trying position in which Mr. Cudahy has been placed
The action of the council is generally commended   by   the   citizens.
Notwithstanding the anxiety of
Mayor Moore to relieve Mr. Cudahy
ofthe "burden" of offering $35,000
for the arrest and conviction of the
kidnappers and the offering of another reward of $35,000 based on the
mayor's personal guarantee to raise
it by popular subscription, Mr.
Cudahy decline to he relieved of the
burden, and announces that his reward will stand.
population, as well as to the industrial development and national
progress generally. Immigration
during the past four years has enormously increased iu the west, and
the number of actual settlers in that
region has reached a figure hitherto
unprecedented in Canadian history.
A feature in the p.esent immigration statistics of the Dominion is
found in the extensive movement
across the border which is going on
from the western states. Mr.
Frank Pedley, Canadian superintendent of immigration, who
has just returned to Ottawa from a
trip through the western states,
reports that the work done during
the past season has been highly
satisfactory. The number of new
settlers whom western Canada received from the American side was
not only large, but these people
were.of the best class. He calculated that about 16,000 farmers had
arrived in Canada from the United
States during the past summer, and
that with their money and effects
they brought with them about $7,-
000,000 of capital.
The Canadian agent in Nebraska,
for instance, reports that from
January to November he sent to
Canada 1,500 farmers. They took
with them money and effects to the
value of $1,000,000. The Minnesota agents stnt 1,300, with property amounting to $800,000. Michigan contributed 3,000 persons, So.
Dakota 800. The outlook for a
large migration of farmers and
others from the western states into
Canada early next spring, Mr. Pedley says, was never brighter and
promises to be a  record-breaker.

—Lai! Enumeration Inaccurate.
An Ottawa dispatch says: Canada is making preparation to count
her widely separated family. The
fourth decennial census of the
Dominion will be taken during the
first week of April next, but the
task of enumeration will require at
„Ieast one month in which to com-
v • plete it. To make the forthcoming
SP "solemn inquest of the nation" and
sp j to complete the Canadian census of
1901 will/equire a small army of between 8,000 and 10,000 enumerators and other officials.
Census taking is  an  old  institution in  Canada.    The   first  official
census of New  France,  as  it  was
then called, was  taken in   1665, a
little more thin half a century after
Champlain laid  the   foundation   of
Quebec.    The   population   of   the
country was found to be 3,315 souls.
During the remainder of the seventeenth century   eight   censuses   of
New Trance were taken, and twelve
in the eighteenth  century.    When,
in 1790, the year in which the first
census of the  United States  was
taken, the population of American
Union was found to be 3,939,314,
the population at that date of what
is now  the Dominion of Canada
wc was 220,000.    tn 1861 all the Can-
$l adian provinces were taken,  except

Will Develop the measure* of lhe Oka-
■Kigali and Boundary District*.
An Exchange says: An application is being made to the Dominion government for a charter incorporating the Pacific Coal company,
with a capital of $4,000,000. Sir
William Van Home, R. B. Angus,
Charles R. Hosmer, E. B. Osier,
W. D. Mathews and several others
are named as organizers, and the
object of is to develop coal
properties in the regions lying between Greenwood, Penticton and
Okanagan lake.
Recent developments in this  section have   demonstrated  the  presence of large areas of coal measures
some of which give promise of  being   equal  to  anything  in   British
Columbia.     Near  Fairview,   some
20 miles from the south end of Okanogan    lake,    is   a   basin   many
miles    in     extent,     where     numerous        rroppings      of      coal
have been  located and  the small
amount of work done up to date
has   proved the products to  be  ot
excellent quality.   The belt appears
to extend over   to   Keremeos,   and
the   Similkameen side ofthe range.
Geologists who have made a study
of  this section have pointed  out
that all the conditions are favorable
for extensive areas of coal lands.
It is understood that the new
company has acquired large holdings in this part of the Boundary
country, and that work will begin
on a large scale as soon as the
charter is arranged.
The formation of the new company, backed as it will be by some
of Canada's most noted financiers,
will mean much as an aid
to the mining and smelting industries of the Boundary country.
This is especially the case owing to
the fact that railroad facilities can
be readily obtained by the promo-
tees of the coal company.
It is the intention to erect ovens
and produce sufficient coke to supply not only local smelting wants
but to compete in Ihe entire interior markets.
The full text of the resolution
introduced by Mr. Olmstead of
Pennsylvania in the United States
house is as follows:
"Whereas, the continued enjoyment of full  representation  in  this
house by any state which  has,  for
reasons other than  participation  in
rebellion or other crime,   deniee to

being 31 yenrs of age and citizen of
the    United   States,     the     right

other officers, is in  direct  violation
of the 14th amendment of the   constitution   of  the     United   States,

the basis    of each  representation
therein shall be reduced in  porpor-

such denial in each of said states

for.the doorkeepership of the Missouri house of representatives. No
man at the capitol has it is said
worked harder than he for an
appointment. James personally
applied to the different members of
the legislature to give him recognition for the benfit oi future generations of his family.
The decision was reached in the
democratic caucus after an all night
session. James' name was presented by Judge T. T. Hawkins a venerable member, who pleaded eloquently for the candidate. On the
first ballot James received but 15

withdrew his name, "thanking

The censorship has just permitted news of the following peace
tentatives to emanate from Pretoria:
About the middle of December a
number of prominent burghers,
who had submitted and were living
in the Pretoria district, formed a peace
committee. Mr. Van Rosenburg,
a former member of Ihe first volks-
raad of the Transvaal, was elected
president of the conference, which
included other prominent members
of the volksraad. The committee
resolved to attempt negotiations,
and accordingly in response to a
suggestion, Lord Kitchener attended a meeting of the committee
December 21 and addressed the
meeting. He said he was glad to
meet a committee desirous of bringing the war to a speedy conclusion,
and he assures them that they
could rely on his ass'stance in every
way calculated to further that object. He proceeded to point out
the folly of a continuance of the
he guerrilla warfare, since the
British government would never
permit the reeslablishment of the
Boer government.
Mr. Chamberlain's statement in
parliament, Lord Kitchener contended, clearly showed that there was
no wish to oppress the burghers.
On the contrary, the British proposals forshadowed an   enlightened
government, in which the burghers
would have a prominent share,  insuring the rights ol  property   and
the ancient laws and customs of the
burghers,    Lord   Kitchener urged
that it was useless to continue the
present inhuman  struggle, pointing
out that the   powers   had   refused
Mr. Kruger's requests  of intervention.    The burghers, he   said,  had
fought a good fight,  but they had
been overpowered, and  there   was
no dishonor in the leaders recognizing the fact.    He reminded  them
that there were hosts ot Boer   prisoners waiting   to   be   restored   to
their families.
see him personally if necessary.
Lord Kitchener bade them tell
their friends what they had heard
him say, and assured them that tliey
could place tbe most absolute reliance on bis giving effect to it.
The committee, which included
General Cronje's brother, cordially
thanked Lord Kitchener and promised to print the speech in Dutch
and to circulate it everywhere.

been issued against burping farm
houses unless it should be prove d
that the actual inhabitants had committed misdeeds.

Lord Kitchener's plan were Jagers-

CHAFFEE'S  RECOUD IS CLEAN
None of HI* Men Mixed I |>   In Looting;
Expeditions.
General Chaffee has cleared himself of any suspicion of participating in any of the looting expeditions
which are said in some quarters to
be going on in China under the
guise of punitive expeditions. His
report of the conditions under which
he took his last excursion from
Pekin has been received at the war
department by cable from Pekin.
The officials were surprised
when they saw the press reports
stating that the American troops in
Pekin, which were distinctly designated as the legation gards and as
such were to have no part in the
ordinary military operations, had
gone in the country to co-operate
with the German expeditionary
force. From the nature of General
Chaffee's telegram it would appear
that the officials had communicated
with him on this subject and invited the explanation which is afforded in the following telegram,
dated January 1:
"Colonel Theodore Wint  returned.   The movement was simply to
vertify the    report   that Christians
had been murdered and secure the
arrest ot the guilty   parties   if   the
allegation   was   found   true.    The
Germans from Tientsin had been  in

COMBINE OF PLOW COMPANIES

Ised lo Enter
The combination of plow companies, of which there has lieen rumors
fort wo or three days, will be launched
this week with a captialof $65,000,-
000. Chicago men who have been
prime movers in the negotiations
stated that all obstacles to the
consummation of thc deal had been
removed.
Charles R. Flint, president of the
United States Rubber company, is
the financial power behind the combination, but it is said the president
of the company will go to a western
man of practical experience in the
manufacture of plows.
Thirty-one firms are said to have
agreed to enter the new concern,
which probably will be called the
American Plow company. The
promise is that the combine will
be able not only to reduce the price
of plows to the farmers, but also
wilt turn into its own treasury a
profit greater by $5,000,000 or
more than the total at pi csent accruing to the manufacturers under
their expensive method of securing
trade.
■Is Proclamations Were Suppressed
Referring    to his proclamations
to the country, Lord Kitchener said
that, unfortunately, these  had  not
been allowed to reach the burghers,
and he trusted that   the committee
would make  known the   fact   to
the  Boers in the field,  as he desired to give them every chance
to surrender and wished  to finish
the war by the most humane means
possible.    He promised to give the
committee notice, if compelled   to
abandon   conciliatory for   harsher
measures.     Going on   to explain
his recent  explanations confirming
Ihe statement that those  who ha
broken oaths of neutrality would be
treated in  the same   way as the
others,  he told the committee  that
all would   be  accommodated  with
their families in   protected laagers
along the Hoe of the railway.     He
asserted   that   it was   inperative
to clear the   country of inhabitants
and   of food because so   long  as
food remained the commandos   will
be able to  continue  in   the   field.
He could   not   be   responsible for
stock unless it was brought in, adding that he hoped at the end of the
war to bc   able to divide the remaining stock  among the various
sufferers.
Mate Other Promises.
No one, he promised, would be
sent out of the country, but all
who had fought fairly, including
the leaders, would receive the consideration due their rank. He advised the formation of a local subcommittee to send agents to the
Boer commandos, explaining that
they would communicate through
the central committee and the military governor,  and also come to

Still the output is most satisfactory.
For the year 1900 Assayer Fred
A. Wing of the United States assay
office at Seattle said that his receipts
at the office have been 46 1-8 tons
of gold and silver. The total
quantity of gold for the year was

assay value of $22,038,755.12, and
it represented the individual deposits of 7106 persons. Over $16,900,-

the remainder from other parts of
Alaska, British Columbia, Wash-
gtoinn and other states. The highest mark was reached in July last,
when over 14 tons of the yellow
metal was deposited in the assay

output was $3,723,272.14, which is
considered good, taking into account the lack of water there and
the almost endless litigation.

The production of metals in Idaho
during the year 1900 amounted to
$14,150,000, an increase of $561,-

of other metals increased. The figures for the year are as follows:
Gold $2,000,000; silver,$6,000,000;

look forward to some noticeable
developments in that department

known to be extremely rich.
"It is a mistake, however, to
imagine that gold is the only asset
of the province. Capital could be
employed in other industries besides
mining in British Columbia. There
are fine agricultural land, magnificent bodies of water for power,
great areas of timber, especially
adapted to the manufacture of pulp;
in short, I know of no country
offering greater facilities for diverse
industries, always providing that

For the year ending March 31,
1900, the total estimated revenues
of Prussia amounted to $581,581,-
857, of which $321,490,620 came
from the state railways. The net
profits of the street railways were
$132,756,356. The total amount
raised by direct taxation of $45,-
782,950, and by indirect taxation
$19,721,250. The interest on Ihe
entire public debt, including all the
money raised for the purchase of
railroads and for every other pur
pose, was $57,921,311. Thus the
porfits on government railroads paid
the interest on the debt, balanced
the whole amount raised by taxation
direct and indirect, and left $10,-
226,841 over; which is more than
three times the cost of supporting
the king (Prussian kings being
much cheaper than  other kings of
finance.)
Prussia has 30,268 miles of government railroads and 3498 belong
to private owners. It is the policy
ofthe government to acquire the
few remaining  lines  as  rapidly as
possible.
In 1889, 42 companies operated
75.4 per cent ofthe trunk line mileage to Russia. In 1899 there were
only nine companies, operating 40
per cent.while the government operated 60 per cent, or 16,414 miles.
The Russian state railroads, formerly run at a loss, now bring a
profit, notwithstanding the fact that
the government has built so mapy
lines for military purposes, witwjtit
regard to commercial considerations.
In Austria proper, the govern-'
ment owns and operates 4700 miles
of railroad and operates 1260 miles
more belonging to private companies. Lines owned and operated
by corporations amount to 4862
miles. In Hungary the governments operates 4876 miles of its
own and 3439 miles belonging to
companies, against 1822 miles owned and operated by corporations. In
France most of the railroads are
run by strictly regulated corporations, but all of them by the term
of their charters, will become the
property of the nation between 1950
and i960.
In Belguim 2069 miles of railroad are operated by the state and
798 miles by corporations.
In Switzerland the voters have
decided by the referendum to acquire the railroad system of the
"juntry.
In Sweden the government owns
2283 miles of railroad and corporations 4066 miles.
In L en mark the government
owns 1108 miles and the corporations 460.
England has private railroads,
but her colonies and dependencies
have gone in for public ownership.
In India only 3600 miles out of
22,491 belong to private companies, although they operate nearly 12,000 belonging to the government or native states.
ln every colony of Australia the
government owns all or most of
railroads, ln New South Wales it
owns the street car lines  as   well.
In Cape Colony.the government
owns 2348 miles of railroad
against 330 miles  in private hands,
In Natal the government owns
all the railroads.
In Egypt it owns all but 72 miles
out of 1169.
In Japan, Chile, Argentine and
Brazil the railroad systems are de-
vided between public and private
ownership.
We have little company in our
policy of exclusive private control
over means of transportation.
About the only countries that go
with us on that line are England
and Spain.
But when we come to telegraphs
we are more lonesome yet, England and Spain have their postal telegraph system. So does every
country in Europe, every country
in Asia of any importance, every
colony of note in South Africa,
every colony in Australia, and the
principal republics in America.
We loom up in solitary grandeur
as the only great country in the
world that permits a part of its
postal system to remain in private
hand. And even we are operating
railroads and telegraphs in the Philippines and telegraphs in Porto
Rico, although we cannot give
our own people the benefits enjoyed
by our "subjects"
It is estimated that one year's
sale of ice in New Vork at a reasonable price would pay the whole cost
of a municipal ice plant and leave
a surplus for something else.
Some people who admit that
public ownership would be a good
thing in itself, ask where the people would get all the billions ot
dollars needed to buy out the public
utilities now controlled by private
monopolies?
Bear this in mind: The people
are paying for all these things now.
Every cent of the value comes
from public contributions. If the
people censed to patronize them,
the Vanderbuilts, the Goulds and
the Huntingtons would be paupers.
It the people can pay interest
on the cost of railroads now, they
could pay it if the railroads were
there own property, especially as in
that case they would have very
much less to pay. The people's
money built the plant of the ice
trust. It could equall) build plants
of the people's own,
It is no experiment that wa are
proposing. Other countries have
done the experimenting and are
now marching confidently ahead.
The question with us is whether
we shall sit stolidly, like Chinamen,
with our eyes closed to the lessons
of progress.—Now Yotk Journal.
COLVILLE DEFIANT
Says He Did His Duty as Lord
Roberts Ordered.
DEMANDS TO BE TRIED
Imperial Yeomanry, Which Included Sous of Millionaires, Had
to Be Sacrificed.
PLAN   OP   ARBITRATION
Major General Sir Henry Colville, whose resignation has been
demanded at the war oflice, but who
refused to resign and went to England from Gibraltar, arrived at Plymouth on Saturday last to demand
a trial by court martial to establish
the responsibility for the yeomanry
disaster at Lindley last May, caused
a countei strike at the war office in
a 3000 word statement which he
has given to the press. He says he
has come home to demand a free
inquiry and does not intend to be
made a scapegoat for the sake
of     the     staff. He.     avers
that the Lindley disaster could never
have happened had he been informed of Lord Roberts' intention.
The primary cause ofthe surrendc,
he says, was the information given
by the headquarters' staff to Colonel
Spragge and himself, and he declines to accept the blame. He
lays out the facts and blames others.
General Colville and his influential
friends in and out of the army are
thus beginning a campaign against
the new secretary of state, William
St. John Broderick, Lord Roberts
and General Kitchener for war. It
is expected to be fought out with
some ferocity in parliament.
After he returned from South
Africa, General Colville says, he
fully acquainted the, war office with
the facts. Alter some time he was
informed by General Sir Evelyn
Wood, the adjutant general, that
Lord Lansdowne, then secretary of
state for war, had directed him to
say that General Lord Wolseley.the
commander in chief, approved of
General Colville's resuming the
Gibraltar command. He learned
unofficially that an army board of
five of the highest officers
of the war office had considered his statements and Lord
Roberts' dispatch on the subject.
His reappointment was the result of
the inquiry. To his intense surpiise
Adjutant General Wood on December 21 notified him that William St.
John Broderick,the newly appointed
secretary of state for war, held him
responsible for the loss of the Yeomanry, and ordered him to quit his
command immediately and hand
over his resignation.
Colville Goes Into Detail.
General Colville, going into official details, says he was ordered to
concentrate his division at Heilbron
on May 29, and names the various
dispositions of the other divisions
which extended across the Orange
Free State. He assumed that Loid
Roberts intended to advance,sweeping all belore him. His orders were
absolute and he had tq carry (hem
out. Hence he could not go to the
relief of the 500 yeomanry without
risking the success of the grand
operation. Under the circumstances,
he said, he considered it his duty to
pass on, even if he were sure it
would entail the loss of the yeomanry. Besides, he had only food
enough for two days. He pushed
on and the yeomanry surrendered.
Lord Roberts broke up General
Colville's division and expressed his
dissatisfaction.
"On my pointing out that I had
obeyed his orders to the letter," declared General Colville, "he said
his orders were only intended as a
guide."
General Colville alludes to some
of the yeomanry being millionaires,
and quotes Lord Roberts as saying
it was his duty to sacrifice his force
for the yeomanry.
"It will be remembered," General Colville says, "that the corps
d'elite numbered 500 and my force
nearly eight times that number."
General Colville recites two examples of what he considers Lord
Kitchener's defective Work.
Between     Leading   Publishers   and
TjrpoKraphleal union.
A pamphlet has   been   issued in
Chicago containing a new  plan   of
arbitration  between   the  American
Newspaper Publishers' association
and the International Typographical union.    The plan was devised
in  December by a conference committee composed of Alfred Cowles
of   the   Chicago Tribune,   M.   J.
Lowenstein of the St.   Louis  Star,
A. A. McCormick of   the  Chicago
Times-Herald and  Frederick  Dris-
coll,   commissioner,     representing
the   publishers,    while James  N.
Lynch, president of the International    Typographical   union,   C.    E.
Hawkes, vice-president, and J.   W.
Bramwood, secretary,   represented
the executive council of the   International Typographical union. The
meeting of the directors of the Publishers association have   approved
the plan, and it is to be submitted
for action at   the  approaching   annual meeting in New York  in   February.
It provides in brief that if any
publisher having a contract with a
local union will agree to submit
to arbitration any differences arising
under the contract, the International Typographical union will underwrite a contract and guarantee its
preservation. Pi ovision is made
tor local conciliation or arbitration
first. If this does not effect the settlement then the matter is to be
referred to a national board of
arbitration, composed of the president of the International Typographical union and the commissioner of the American Newspaper
Publishers' association, who, if
they cannot agree, shall select a
third member. Work is to be continued during the time occupied by
arbitration and if so adjudged the
board's decision will have practical
effect upon the day the issue was
raised.
NOVBL GREETING OPLAROK
Edwin Markham Reads a   Poem   on
Ihe New Centnr].
A dinner was given at Arlington
hall under the auspices of the workingmen of New York and was called
"Labor's Greeting to the Twentieth
Century." It was projected by the
committee of 100 which was organized to call a convention to estab
lish in New York city a federation
or council of delegates from labor
and reform societies.
Amoung the speakers were Controller Bird S. Coler, John Swinton
and Henry George.
Edwin     Markham   was    loudly
cheered as he   ascended   the   platform.    He read the following poem
as it was first published:
We stand here at the end of  migh
ty years,
And a great wonder rushes  on   the
heart,
Whiie cities  rose    and   blossomed
into dust,
While shadowy lines of kings  were
blown to air—
What  was the purpose brooding on
the world
Through the large   leisure   of   the
centuries?
And what the end—failure  or   victory?
Lo, man has laid his sceptre on t! s
stars,
And sent his spell   upon   the   continents.
The heavens confess their  secrets,
and the stones,
Silent as God, publish their ministry.
Man calls thc lightnings  from their
secret place
To crumple up the   spaces   of   the
world
And snatch the jewels from the  flying hours.
The wild white smoking  horses of
the sea,
Are startled by  its   thunders.    The
world powers
Crowd aJound to be the lackeys   of
the king.
His hand has torn   the  veil  of the
Great Law,
The law that was made   before  thc
world's—before
That tar first whisper on the ancient
deep,
The Law that swings   Arcturus on
the north,
And  hurls the soul of man   on   the
way.
But what avail, O builders of the
world,
Unless ye buiid a safety for the
soul?
Man has put harness on Leviathan,
And hooks in his incorrigible jaws,
And yet the perils of the street remain.
Out of the whirlwind of the cities
rise
Lean hunger and the worm of
misery,
The heartbreak and the cry of
mortal tears.
But hark, thy bugles blowing on the
peaks;
And hark, a murmur as of many
feet;
The cry of captains, the divine
alarm!
Look, the last son of time comes
hurrying on—
The strong young Titan of democracy;
With swinging steps he takes tha
open road,
In love with the winds that beats
his hairy breast,
Baring his sunburnt stength to
all the world,
Then cast his eyes around with
Jovian glance;
Searches the tracks of old tradition;
scans
With rebel heart the books of pedigree;
Peers into the face of privilige and
cries
Why are you halting in the path of
men?
It is your shoulder bears the human load?
Do you draw down the rains of the
sweet heaven
And keep the green things growing?
Back to hell.
We know at last the future is secure.
God is decending from eternity
And all things good and evil, build
the road.
Yes, down in the thick of things,
the men of greed
Are thumping the inhospitable clay;
By wondicus toils the men without the dream
Are laying the foundations of the
dream,
The kingdom of fraternity foretold.'
Prince Sn to Apologise
Writing from Pekin to the Times,
Dr. Morrison says he believes that
Prince Su, whose palace was destroyed during the siege of the legation, will be chosen to go to Berlin
to apologize for the murder of
Baron von Ketteler. He says
Prince Su is of higher rank than
Prince Ching and conducts the imperial sacrifices in the absence of
Emperor Kwang Hsu.
Russia is negotiating with Germany for a convention aiming to restore the railway from Tien Tsin lo
Shan-hai-luvan to Great Britain,
says Dr. Morrison. Russia is to
retain half of the rolling stock of
the road from Shanhai-kwan to
Tien Tsin. She also appropriates
the workshops at Shan-hai-kwan,
with all their contents. Great
Britain is trying to modify these
onerous conditions, which probably
will be agieed to by Count von
Waldersee, as no German interests
are involved.
HISMl-V   I'll US* IS SHI.I'TM 'A I.
Ignores   ii.Iii.-m-    Arceplanre   of  the
Pears   Terms.
The Russian press either ignores
the Chinese acceptance ol the peace
terms or effects skeptism regarding
Chinese sincerity. Most of the
papers emphasize what they regard
as the evidences of dissension
amoung the powers, an extract from
one of Dr. Morrison's dispatch:*
from Pekin to the London Times
supplying thc text.
The Novoe Vremya calls Count
von Waldersee a "brutal old man."
Tne Vladivostok correspondent
of the Novoe Vremya telegraphs that
the Japanese and Russians are
fraternizing, the Japanese singing
Russian songs.
Prince Jamie de Bourbon, son of

of Vice Admiral Alcxieff, has been
