Tha     services  of Captain McKenzic  were at once,enlisted,  and steaming  to Cowichan Gap the Henrie'fcta speed  ily hauled  the Georgian oil' the rocks  and towed tlie barge and the disabled tug to Crofton.  The bottom of the.biarge was   not  seriously damaged, but it is ^thought  likely    ..that    the Escorts propellor  may    be badly     injured.

We of     Ladysmith  have,  unlorluiNitely,      no     hospital   of   our  own.

Are  miners,  vote it vvas     decided  against  establishing  a  hospital  in Ladysmith?  Now, there is a provincial grant  of fifty cents per day for each patient treated in any provincial hospital. Conditions are different.  Quite likely the same assistance for  a Hospital could be secured as was  offered by the Colliery Company two  years   as;o.

Smathers,  (he millionaire, horseman,   has     been  accused  of knowing that  drugs    . a.d  been  administered  to Lou  Dillon,  C.  Ki  (!.   Bull-ing's  famous  trotter.    At  Memphis,   u,   October,  1904,   Smathers      driving  his   own   horse,  Major  Dclmar, beat Lou  Dillon.  The Mold  cup was worth $5,000,    'hich Sirath-  ers won at the time, "'as   ji:en takjii  by  a deputy sheriff or.t  of   -mather's  su te in the Pierropoint,  and is now  in the sheriff's office.    Mr.   Smathers  when seen late last night said     the  cup  had been  seized before, he     had  learned ��������� of the  accusations  and   that :  he believed his former trainer     and I  Bulling's  trainer who drove Lou Dii- j  lion  in the race 'were  being   used  by  some     man of great power to injure  him.  A Chicago despatch says: K. i B.  Bullings, owner of Lou Dillon, is  now on his way to New t York, and  it is understood that he is decidedly  averse to participating in the controversy regarding the $5,000 gold cup  awarded to E. E. Smatners of New .  York, whenSSmattier's trotter, Major in ihe month of January, ami the de-  Delmar, defeated Lou Dillon at Mem malld is fair1^ sood.  I>his in 1904. A man who is familiar with the case said today: '" The  liest vetcrinaries in. this country  ha\e in turn had Lou Dillon under  their care j and ��������� scrutiny,-and none of  them is able to say if she will ever  recover her fooi'mer greatness.  "Assuming that     the lc-ai action  for the recovery of the cup is 'brought  to  a successful   issue,, it  is manifest  that probably  the     least important  feature  of the  matter  has  been  settled, .and  there  will still remain the  gravest questions  of  tho responsibility for  the damage done to  the mare,  as well as the personal discussion involved.   ' If   the association  succeeds  in  the action for the Vecovery of the  cup the atrocious  character ,'of ���������    the  wrong  done  would   necessarily   indicate to  the public  officials  the;   next  step to be taken."   O ; ���������-  Mayor Nichols/on had a conversation with Mr. Parker Williams at  the station this morning. 'In reference to the hoso reel question, Mr.  Williams told His Worship that the  government had not yet come to any  decision as to the pticc to be asked  for the hose.

MONDAY,   FEB.   12,   1900  AN INDIAN  POTLATCH  On Tuesday evening, says the Cow  ichan Leader, we visited the Quamichan ranch in company with The  Hon. i''" Jdham Smith, J. Savage, of  Rockfoid, 111., Missi Agnes Dean  Cameion, Mrs. Whiteman D. Ford,  Mis. Hanson, Indian Agent W. R.  Robertson and others. It was our  first visit to an Indian dance and  pollaU-h, and wc were very much  .surprised, first, at th'c number present, and second at the behavior of  those present. There ,must have }fc-t\  four hundred persons present anil per  feet order prevailed. Money, blankets, guns, fciread and other articles  were-given away, each recipient as  h s or her name was called came  forth and received a gift., The  building in which the potlatch was  hold is 45x90 feet in, size with two  huge fires' burning in the centre constantly attended by four men. Seats  are arranged all around the sides  and ends of the building where the  spectators and those not taking p.ai't  -can sit.and view -he performance.  There was a large space "n the crn-  tre, around the huge fne wnere the  dancer's " performed and the 'astn,silc  dresses 'in which they appeared around these fires gave the whole t.i.iug  a, very weird appearance, the like of  -vhicli we haA'c nc^er seen. The music wns furnished by the audience  by heating with sticks on boards and  two bv three had Sort of drums of  skins stretched over round hoops, but  the perfect time kept was a surpiise  io the forty of visitors and really  z\m danCHifr Wivs skilful and grateful'to what wc had anticipated. The  pictures������jfceiiess of the whole thing  must be witnessed to be appreciated.   o���������   PECULIAR   AND  PERTINENT.  ���������'A business in Australia is that of  lending tng-agement rings and wedding trousseaus.

Dr. Ford Rohfertson,   in the first of  the   Morison lectures  at Edinburgh,  has    inn forward a theory.as to tlie  cause of   general paralysis of the insane     which the medical faculty are  in    no -wise. / inclined    to accept    as  conclusive.        He    declares that evidence is  available to show that general paralysis and the  allied disease,  tabes    dorsalis,     are    as specific in  their causation  of  tuberculosis,    typhoid    fever or    diphtheria. With his  assistants  he succeeded   in oh|aiu rig  a, culture   of the diphtheroid  bacillus  from, the bfain in nine out of twenty-tin ee    cases of   general  paralysis  in  which  the experiment  was made.  Inquiries   among  the   best  special-'  ists   in London  indicated . that  while  (lie  medical     profession    regard  Dr.  Ford Robertson's theories  with sympathetic'     interest,  they  do  not consider    that they advance our know-1  edge of     how ������est to deal with general -    i<iralysis    ui-   the    insane one  whit      Regret    is expressed that so  Tar tfiothing -decisive has come     from  his experiments.

Toronto  A good deal has Deen heara rrom  time to time of the extent to which the  Japanese pushed their spy system,  both in Manchuria and Russia, before  the war. The accuracy of the following story is guaranteed by the Matin:  Toward the end of 1898 a Japanese  from Kiusiu arrived in St. Petersburg  and opened a tea warehouse on the  Nevsky prospect. Shops of this klud  simply swarm in the Russian capital,  but all the same the Japanese prosper*  ed exceedingly.  In view of the big business he antic-  ' fpated at the Easter festivities during  the following spring the tea merchant  got over five of his fellow countrymen as assistants. These were all extremely agreeable, tactful young fellows, who quickly ingratiated themselves with the aristocratic clientele of  the shop.  But despite the prosperity of their  business the Japanese did not seem  happy. Their melancholy was noticed,  and at last they confessed their secret.  They did not In the least mind leaving  Japan; they were delighted with Russia. What they did not like was to remain foreigners on the soil of their  adopted country. ,Thelr dearest wish,  they said, was to become naturalized  Russians and to be admitted Into the  Orthodox church.  The idea appealed to the aristocratic  customers of the tea shop, aud In due  course they were admitted into the Orthodox church and made Russian clti-  eens.  Shortly after this the five new Rue-  elans wanted to get married and found  families. Once" more their customers  interested themselves in their behalf.  Brides were found in the shape of  pretty young Russian work girls, dowries provided by subscription and the  'Marriage ceremony duly performed.  Time went on, children were born, and  everything In the various nienages  seemed to be most satisfactory when  suddenly the war broke out. Two days  later the Russian-Japanese tea men  had all disappeared, leaving their wivea  and families behind them in St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg society was flabbergasted. The confidences It had unfortunately imparted to the tea men  went to Tokyo in the form of private  reports to the Japanese general staff,  while the heroes of the story, all captains or lieutenants* in the Japanese  army, went back to their respectivt  rPirlmenta.���������London News.  > Wf re twins, an' my-flame's  J..ucy BroWM,  Au' her name's Lulu.    i'm called Lou,      |-_,  An' everybody in 'Is tovrrk  'Ky call my sinter 'at name tno. ^ >  An' folks 'ey come to see us here,  An v.-e 1st have tJie mostes' fun, '  "Cause evw'body say: "Oh, dear!

Servian  fsaue  Which  Is   In  mand Anionic Collector*.  According to a Belgrade correspondent,  the  publication  of  the  story  of  Queen Natalie's' iutrigue to reve������g������  berself on Servia, followed by the sudden withdrawal by the postal authorities of all the new coronation stamps,  Is the eole topic of conversation  throughout the Balkan states.  In order to celebrate King Peter*e  coronation the Servian government deckled to issue a series of large postal  labels bearing the new monarch's portrait beside that of his ancestor Kara--  geovge.  The engraving was unfortunately ln> ! ������noney  trusted to a Frenchman named Mou- j X"���������Ni  ebon, a person, it is alleged, very  friendly toward Queen Natalie, avd. be  very skillfully introduced into tlfc������ 4e-  si^n for the new postage stamps the  ghastly features of the queen's murdered son, King Alexander.  A vast number of the coronation  ���������tamps were issued to the public before  It became known to the authorities  that the new issue was regarded by  many of King Peter's superstitious  ���������ubjects as a "heavenly sign" that tlie  Sew monarch's reign was to be "brief  and bloody."  If one of the new stamps be held np-  ���������Ide down the unmistakable death  mask of King Alexander may be seen,  formed by a portion of King Peter's  head with that of his ancestor, Kara-  george. The nostrils of the l^'O beads  together form the eyes of the murdered monarch, the mustaches make the  eyebrows, and the eyebrow and eye of  Karageorge form King Alexander's  nose and mouth.  The "'death mask stamps," as the new  Issue has become known, have undoubtedly made a great impression i������  the army and among the uneducated  classes.  ���������  "I learn on the best authority," cou-  -eludes the correspondent, "that the'  ������overms<mt is aking desperate efforts  to buy ap as many of the dangerous  labels as possible and is even sending  agents abroad to France, Germany  and England to secure them at any cost  from speculators and foreign stamp  dealers."���������London Nevp.-"   : o���������������������������  Eaxy When You Know How.

AJnaiWle to trace their way through  the forests on account. of the  hea>y   snows,  the   two     men for  eight daji. wandered, from place  to place without seeing a sign of  civilization. rl'he second day out  the last of the food wns eaten, ami  for two days .the'men had nothing  to eat.

Were it a steamer,  it undoubtedly would have drifted  from the position in which the  fire was first seen about 7 o'cIock.  But the fact that ths fire did tu>t  appear to inovo any from its posit ion inaib it seem that whilj  coasting up tlio gulf yesUrday  some vessel had caught fire and  bad   been   headed   for   shore and  beached   in   an   effort ( to   save tho  passengers and crew. Some of  those who saw the flames wore of  the opinion that. it was a bunb  fire' on the mainland, but on looking, at the same through good glasses many wore convinced ' and fell  satisfied that it could he nothing  else Mian a steamer in flames.  The thought that such was tho  case, and that many precious lives  were at. stako roused some of the  ..citizens   to action.  The Mayor,     who  had been     made  J   aware of the. occurence at once  communicated with Mr.. Stocke.li,  who immediately placed Ihe AI01--  at   the    disposal   of   any   one who  wished to hazard the trip, making  arrangements'to have the afternoon  shift men come "up at No. One  shaft.
