Kuhn,  former postmaster at West .Seattle,  who is confined in the county jail,  on a six months' sentence for embezzlement of postal funds, "learned  yesterday that his little babe, a hoy  9 months of age, had. died. The father was sorely grieved at being  compelled to spend the day behind  the bars, instead of at the bier of  ���������his offspring.  '  ������ . '  Kuhn, prior to his arrest, was  postmaster and also conducted a gen  oral store. The postal inspectors  found that lie was ?1,900 short" in  his accounts, but he claimed that  this was due to mixing hi* .personal  and government accounts. .After his  arrest restitution -was made to the  government, and when the case was  called Kuhn plda-dcd -guilty-to a tecl^  nical violation of the law and was  sentenced by Judge Han-ford to serve  six months in the county jail. Three  and one-half months of this sentence  have been served and it is understood that a movement has been  started to secure a pardon.  When asked if he would roq^icst per'  mission from the authorities to attend the. funeral of his babe, Kuhn  answered he probably would not.  Since'his incarceration he has boen,  a model prisoner and has been a  trusty almost from the start. His  ���������wife and another child still reside in  West Seattle.  tcLSon and Kake that materialized in  the uiiicjfiic discovery. For tluec  weeks they have been (juictly investigating the ground in that vicinity,  find it is fx.oz.cn to.a depth of several feet' and that all suiface water is  promptly congealed thereon.  One icmaikable featuie of their dis  covery is that they can" actually  umno ice. In fact^ they have -kept  thc refiigeiators in,their,own homes  supplied-for a foitmghl by chunks  of ice dug from the'cailh. With a  pick and shovel tiicj have dug a wag  on load -at a time and believe there  is an inexhaustible supply. Thc ice-  mine is a halt mile in extent, a  quarter mile wide and pi unknown  depth.  STRIKE IN  yet Winnipeg gets a lower rate. And  it is  even worse as regards   points  in our  own province.    The rate from  New Westminster    and other    coast  towns to Nelson, Cranforbok,    Ross-  land and the  Kootenay 'district  - is  g 1 eater    than   fro,m   Winnipeg. <   The  difference in  the freight rate    from  Winnipeg    by      way    of tlie Crow's  "Nest Pass, is irom 25 to 33     cents  per hundred .weight   less   than from  the coast tni these British-Columbia  points.-   Thc result.'is that the coast  is     prohibited    from    trading with  these places.     On staple articles,the  extra freight charges would eat r up  all  the  piofits.     This is  the    thing  wc want remedied.     This   is ' what  we sent Mi.  Joseph Martin'   to   Ottawa  to ask  the commission.   If we  do not get thc reduction on   treight  as   far    as Calgary   we   should    at  least get it to points in our    own  province.     We claim that the discrimination is unfair and we   will    insist on an answer in this point."  No action has yet been taken by  the committee, but it is likely that  an eflort will be made to see the  coinmissioiieis who aie now on theii  way to the Yukon, before they go  hack east.  KILLED BY  STREET-CAR  Montreal, Aug: 21.���������Knocked down  and mangled by a street ,car, Urbjain  Roux, a saddler, from Tinwyck, JAth-  told that jibe woman is dead. The  man seemed anxious lo have it understood that the shots were fned  inside the' house, and his version is  that he stood 111st inside thc doorway ^and> hied nist as Mrs. Pivpo  was rising with a cry ,noti to shoot  as 'he pulled the gun from _Mic inside1 of his coat. l  '  ���������v  Deputy. Matt Slarwich-related the  story as f.11 as he could get it fiom  the prisoner. He says the trouble  arose over the breaking of a window at the house. Matenche became  involved"in a dispute with his twTo  comrades.^ Aftoi leaving the house  they lctuined and the prisoner entered the" dooLWay with the gun in  his hand." The woman, who was a  cripple, started to aiise from her  chair wUh^a- cry, when two shots  were fired, one of them enteiing her  aliilomen.  - After the act was committed, Matenche diopped the weapon and ran  out into the darkness, but was soon  taken into custody by the deputy.  No charge has yet Wen placed  against the man," and the information has not yet been officially placed in the hands of the piosccutinpo  attorney's oflice *  New Westminster, Aug. 22.���������Appar-,     Matt, a Finlander, was in trouble  entiy there^ will be no change regard-   lust evening, and came before    Justices of the Peace Matlicson and Nicholson  for    a hearing,     The   complainant was one Victor Thompson,  who claimed that    the accused had,  011 Sunday night last, attacked   jhim  wilh  a knife.      During the progress  of the    hearing,    it was shown that  the prisoner had bfecn in a figjht with  the complainant in the New Western1  ibwir about seven o'clock Sundaytevcn  ing.     After this discussion had   been  settled considerably to the disadvantage of the complainant, who appeal;  ed in   couit with two black    eyes as  a  result, the la Iter claimed that ho  was  again  attacked by Matt, at    12  o'clock that night on the back steps  of a    hoarding 0 house,    and it was  here that he claimed a knife was used.     Thompson failed to prove    his  case, however,    and Matt was    dismissed.      Mr.' Russell Simpson   appealed for the accused,  ing tlie close season for sockeyes  jlKitween August 25 and September  15th. Inspector Swoid to-day today slated that as far as he was  aware there would be no change,  and that unless he hears from Ottawa in the meantime there will he  110 nets smaller than a seven inch  mesh used between Saturday morning, Aug. 25 and Sunday evening,  Sept. 111. ,  Some time ago the announcement  was made by Mr. Burdis, secretary  of Fraser River canners association,  that the Dominion government    had  use    of      the   traps  through the close season.  These facts aic taken by Fraser  fishermen to he an unjust discrimination.   They claim that if  the    trap  eyes and cohoes, that the net fishers  should have the same privilege, that  theie should either bie a close-season  or an open season for all. The fact  that the tiaps are allowed to keep  in opciation it is claimed, 'will lessen the -catches in the river after  the season is again opened. It is  also alleged that 'the traps keeping  in opeiation all season will kill off  the cohoes 111 a couple of years.  Theie wclc only small catches of  sockeyes last night and some fishermen who got "skunked" on the first  drift gave up in disgust.

Seattle, Aug. 22.���������'-Perhaps the  best business for small farmers in  lhe Hawaiian islands is pineapple  laisin-o," said G. N. Wilcox, of Honolulu, at the Butler last night. Mr.  Wilcox is engaged extensively in ag-  liculfinal puisuits in the islands.  "A year ago practically the only  fanning was done in the raising cl  sugar cane. It was not until the  past yeai thar experiments have  shown that pineapples can ������o ix'.spri  by thc smaller faimci to as r.dvan  tage.  "Panenpple land does not cost so  much as sugar land, and the cost  of raising the apples is not as much.  One lnus go into the sugar business  on a Luge scale to make it pay. In  some p.nts one can buy good land  for S100 an acic, while in other  pails of the island it is,next to impossible to get. land at a leasonabjlo  figuie.  ''Lahoi costs from 75 cents to  $1.50 a day. Japanese are largely  employed and work cheaper than the  Hawaiian's.

'  The recent episode at the Belasco  theatre, Washington, when the president's coachman had a difficulty  wilh the manager because he would  not move his carriage, although nobody was in the carriage���������and it was  waiting for some White House guest������  reminded an old police sergeant of a  time when he was stationed at thc  Baltimore & Ohio station in that  city, according to the New York  World.  Among his other duties he had to  keep carriages from standing at tnc  curb diiectly in front of the station  entrance, it being necessary to keep  that place cleat for caniages that  were coming and going at that point  President Grant drove to the station  to meet one of the incoming trains.  While the officer was in another  place the carriage ^topped in front oi  the-station. When thaj officer wturn-  ed he noticed the president's rig  standing there and waited for it to  move along. When it did not move  and no one alighted the officer supposed that the president had gone  into the station.  "You know as well as I do that  you caTmot stand there," said tho  officer to thc president's coachman.  "Do you know whose carriage this  is?" was the only answer oi the  man on the box.  "That makes   no difference.     You  must      move."      But there was no  move  on thc part of the   coachman  to stir from thc place.  "Hawkins," came a voice from inside, "did you hear what that officen  said?" And the head of the president of the United States was poked'  out of the enrriage window.

Peters, of the marine supreme court  was presiding at Bangor over a  civil case, years ago, in which one,of;  the important witnesses was ahorse  doctor tinned Burns. The doctor was  ;i small man with a weak little  voice, and the council-on both sides,  as well as the court and jury, had  great difficulty in hearing his testimony.  During' cross-examination the counsel for the plaintiff became exasperated and began to-prod and harry  the little man.  "Dr. Burns," he shouted, "if we  are ever going to get anywhere with  this case you must speak up so the  court will hear you. You can't ey-  pect the jury to understand signs.  Speak loud and strong,  sir."  The small-sized veterinary tried,  but it was evidently no use. Whether  from embarrassment or inability the  sound would not come.  "Well, your honor," began counsel ||j  indignantly, when the chief justice I gf  stopped him with a gesture. Leaning j������J  over the bench he said: ;^j  "Mr. Attorney,   you    must be pa- 'fi  tient with  the doctor.     He   cannot \'~  help it.       Years spent in the    sickroom have made speaking low a sec  orid nature with him."  Capt. Alex. McLean's schooaer  Carmencita,, made famous last year  by hor alleged raids on the American sealing grounds  is about lo doso'iid  a common guano wu-rier. She is  now owned by a .Mexican Guano  company, and will be employed in  the transportation of odoriferous,  cargoes from I ha guano islands oil  tlie coast of Mexico to the mainland.  Rev. M. O.

DEFIES  COMPETITION  Some time ago king Edward sent  a donkey as a present to his little  grandson the crown prince Olaf, oi  Norway. The donkey was sent b>  the steamer Monteblcllo, and the cai>->  tain got instructions to look weli  after the animal. On arrival outside  thc Chustiania fjord the captain signalled the lighthouse "All right, '  but received no signal in reply. J:e  then gave orders to signal "ass" on  one mast and "All right" on thc  other. But still no reply. As it  is a vciy important matter thut signals from vessels passing the lighthouse, should be reported propcily,  the captain complained to the an tho- ;'j  rities. The official explanation is ; f*  this: At the moment the monfcebel-  lo passed the lighthouse thc signalman on duty was called to the telephone and consequently could not re  ply immediately, and when, afte-i  having finished the conversion at the  telephone, he saw the second signal  flying: "Ass! all right," he took it  as a personal snub-and did not think,  it necessary   to report it.  ...
