Mr. Landis declared  today   Unit Va  printing      contagion  seems   to  have  swept over and   taken possession  of  congress  and a'l   departments of the -  government   to   such   an extent   that  an arbitrary reduction  in  the printing appropriations of from   20   u>  25  per cent,   could  be made without detriment to public welfare.

The milk is fresh and sweet,     and  peculiarly  rich in nutritive and  medicinal qualities.    The yield  from    a  full-grown   whale is  from  five tosov-  eu     hogsheads      a day.

Chemical   analysis   has   shown   that  COLLINS OFF  FOR FRISCO  George D. Collins was extradited to  San Francsco via Seattle by the  steamer Princess Victoria, leaving at  -0,o'clock Saturday night.  'Ihe extradition was done without  notice. ]Ur.      Collins was unaware  of his impending departure until about -twenty minutes before tbe steam  er sailed. His'effects had'been  piit  together and he was taken to the city., lock-up by Constable -O'Lcary.  There Chief Langiey told him the  warrant of surrender had arrived and  been given to Detective Gibson. The  patrol wagon was at the door, and  Collins, the chief and two officers���������  Sergeant Redgrave and Constable  fl'Leary -embarked. Detective Thomas Gibson, who has been waiting since  July for his prisoner, was at th?  .Princess Victoria, and tbe San Francisco'lawyer was then turned over; to  him.  Collins made no objection. lie asked Detective Gibson to give him a  copy of the warrant, which, he noted,  did not contain any statement that  no other charge than that of perjury  could be brought against, him on his  arrival in San Francisco. However,  he said'the law held that he could not  be charged with- any other -offence  than perjury, for which he was committed for ox tradition by Judge  Lampman. Just before the steamer  sailed Detective Gibson and Collins  shook bands. "Well, George, we're  off at last," said Gibson.  Collins laughed. "it docs look like  it." he said.  Then the steamer tooted, the officers went ashore and Collins had been  extradicted from Victoria after abandoning his long and for a time determined  fight against fate.  Secrecy   had     been      maintained   by  the police regarding      their  intentions.  If  was     generally      believed that  he  would   be  kept until  Wednesday   and.  sent   by  the      direct .steamer  Queen.

II: MacMahon, which  has returned to England after spending  two and  a half years demarking  the boundary  between      the Persian  and     A fob an     territory in Seistan,  about which .there was a quarrel. No  fewer than  fifty members of tbe mission  lost their  lives,  some from heat  awl   thirst,  others' from  being frozen  to death,     anil some from drowning  and   hydrophobia,   while  nearly  5,000  camels  and      J 20  horses succumbed.  The   mission,   says  Router,  consisted  of eleven British officers,'a large stall  of    survey and    irrigation experts, an  escort of 200 native infantry,  00 cavalry,  with     a large supply 0f transport,  including the 58th Camel Corps  ���������in all a   total of 1,500 men,       200  horses, and 2,200 camels.   As the base  was   at Quclta,  500 miles across almost   waturlcss  desert,   whence      all  stores except grain audi fodder and a  few   local   commodities,   liart   to      he  imnorled,  the difficulty of feeding the  mission can he well appreciated. Five  weeks  were  taken   in the march    of  500 miles over uninhabited, waterless  country between Quctta and Seistan,  and three men and a number of ani-  ma-ls were frozen to death.   The camp  was  formed at Kubak, a bare,  desolate  spot,   wind-swept,   with  alternations  of extreme  beat and coici,   and  here the mission  stayed two and   ,a  half  S'.immers.    Tbe  work  of demarcation   was   very difficult.    South    of  the Ilrlmtnid Rher, for 00 miles, tho  line'"   ran   through  an absolutely wai  terless     desert,  in which the pillar-  huiidiiig     parties     had to   spend  six  weeks,   being   dependent  entirely   upon  water  brought from considerable  distance/;.    North of this section the  boundary was through country   liable  to inundation,  in  which pillars of   a  massive,  permanentjnature had to be  built.   The last 20 ihiles of the fron-  lici  ayain     tui; up the waterless glacial   slopes'of   the   Siah   Koh mountain.       The demarcation was finally  completed     at the end of  jst year.  One of the most  tragic experiences  was  the death  of an Indian" surveyor  while  on  duty  in  Hie  waterless  desert,   of  Dasht-i-jMargo,   which       had  never  before  been   visited  or 'surveyed.     He ventured  too far from water,   anW,   owing   to   the  intense heat,  was   unable  to move  forward   or .retrace his steps.    He and  seven of his  followers paid  the penalty with their  lives.    The incident was marked     by  the; heroism  of one ��������� of his  men,   who,  seeing   the  surveyor  d,se,   determined  to rescue the map for which" so many  lives "'haid   been given.    He  cut  it off  from  the  boarfrl of   the  plans   tab|l.o,  and,  knowing that he could -not-long-  retain consciousness,  wound  it under  his waist cloth and around bis b|0dy.  Then he blindly started northward in.  the hope of reaching water.   The four  men who starred 'with -h-iih Collapsed  and -lie himself    remembers no more  than   coining   to   consci'ousjicss ���������     at  'night  time  lying  in  ii pool  of  water  by   the   Kras-h   river.    Here he   was  found-by a wandering  Afghan,     who  carried liim on  his back to an  Afghan village,   where his -fAfc  was saved  after receiving careful attention.  The  bodies  of his  unfortunate companions  were afterwards discovered in a completely  mummified, condition.  Last winter all the jackals      with  which  Seistan  abounds for some  unknown cause went mad and attacked  men and  animals-    T^ic d.scasc also  spread    to    the wolves,  who   played  great havoc.    Four members of     the  mission   were   bitten,  one  of   whom  died   of .'hydrophobia.     A mad   wolf  which attacked the camp of the Camel   Corps,   bit  78  camels  and       one  horse,  and   IS  of  the camels  amd   the  horse died of hydrophobia.   On -another   occasion   a horde   of   mad   wolves  tried      unsuceesslullv   to  rrslii       the  camp.

The fish began  arriving in July and  continued      to  come  until the middle  of September.  n'om the fish  which  we retained   between the weirs at  Seaton lake we  obtained forty-live million of sockeye  salmon  eggs, and  one and a half million  spring  salmon  eggs,  a total    of  forty-six mid a half million eggs for  the season.  "Whilst we might  have   incubjktwl a  greater number of e-'-s at the station  we did  not  <io so, because  that   was  ihe limit of what  we  thought       we  could raise of tree swimming fish.  "While the Seatpn lake hatchery is  one of  the largest on   tne coast, it is  not     sufficiently large, to rear more  than ten million free  sw.mming hsh.  vVe have,  however,  constructed  in an  armof   the creek,  i caring  ponds which  cover a space ol 1,5('U  leet in length  oy 80 feet "in width, ;n which the conditions are as near nature as possible  and      in these  interesting ponds  we  ^opose   to rear  to  a free s\V|.jnnidng  condition',  thirty  odd   million  fish.  "As to the other hatcheries on the  watershed of the Fraser, there is'  '.that of Shuswap, They collected  th������re eleven and a half million, sock-  eyes, one and a half million of which  they shipped to the Bon Accord :hatchery. At the hatchery on the Birkenhead they jcollectcxl twenty-four audi  a half millions. I am told,, five and a  half millions-of which they sent to  Birkenhead, owing to high water, due  to the excessive;rainfall'in September  the collection of eggs for the Bon-  Accord- and Harrison Lake hatcheries has been less than the 'effort's  made to collect them-.  "Strange to say, the late rim of  fish in Movice creek has not "beeh up  to.the, average of the last twelve  years, with the result that up to  date the collection of egvgs at that  point has been less than six million  No one was more surprised at the  failure of the fish to run to Moricc  creek this year than myself. I have  inspected that point for- the last four  years, and this is the only year in  which 1 have not seen an abundance  of   fish.  "Reviewing the results on the watershed for the Fraser for the year,  which is professionally considered :'  big year, it is my opinion that i he:  were not, so many breeding fish reach  ed the spawning grounds this year a:  in  the big  year .four  years  ago.  "From   the hatchery   point,  of view,  then,   we have at the Shuswap batch  cry    eleven and a half million eggs.  At   the. Birkenhead a take of 2-1 A- 'millions,   at   Moricc  creek  a lake  of six  mi.lion, anil at Seaton lake forty-live  million aifd a half;  a total  of eighty-  seven  million   for the  five   hatcheries  on  the Fraser river.  "   "Naturally,     1 think  1 am   greatly  pleased    that  at  the  one  provincial  hatchery of which  T am sole  manager  1 have succeeded   in   faking  more than  one-half  of all   the  eggs  collected   o"  the      Fraser  watershed   this season,  but. in making   this  statement   I wish  to  emphasize  the  fact   that  the water and  the natural conditions as well  as  the  run  of  fish   were  more  favorable  at   my station   than   at   others.  *ln  thus complimenting myself and  the  provincial  government  upon   the  success   that  we have  met  with       in i  taking more than one-half of  the total collection  of eggs  at  our       one  Statements from Gentlemen who  r.  Have  Been Mentioned  as  Probable  Candidates  Although there is as yet another  two months before 'the term of the  present city council will expire, the  next municipal elections are already  being talked of on tbe streets, and  the names of several gentlemen have  beep  mentioned  as 'likely  candidates  for either the mayoralty or the   al-  dermanic board.     In connection with  the former office, the following names have been mentioned: Aid. II.  Blair, Aid., 1). Nicholson; Jf Bickle,  1VI. Matheson; A. Uren, and A. Mc-  Murlrie. While manv have expressed  the hope that the present, mayor,  Mr. J. W. Coburn, would seek election.  During the past week The Ledger  has interviewed the gentlemen whose  names are mentioned above; also several of the members of the present  board of aldermen. In nearly all  cases the gentlemeji spoken to have  authored ihe press to make definite  statements  as to  their intentions.  Last week a reporter called on Mr.  Coburn, and brought up the subject  mentioning that His Worship had  been frequently spoken of as being  likely to  seek  re-election.  "Nothing  is fmtiicr   from   my  intentions,        said Mr.  Coburn.  "Certainly  I have been asked  by some ,of  my friends to again run for the office,  but   I have  fully   made up  my mind  returned .Mx. Coburn,. ,  Mr.  D.  Nicholson  was next spoken  to.   Mr. Nicholson said he had been  frequently  asked   to seek election to  the mayoralty, but at present he had  not decided whether to .do so ������or not.  He     was not by  any means anxious  '"or  the office, ��������� an|d if a glood,  progressive,   business-like  man could  be  induced to run. for tbe position he himself would  not seek election,      and  would do all in his power to support  the, candidate.  Mr.   M.   Matheson  authorized  The  ledger to announce that he had no  intention of running for the mayoralty.   He had been asked, but had decided not to do so.  Mr. Andrew McMurtrie when asked  if the report that he was likely to  become a candidate for the mayoralty was true, gave the reporter to  understand that be had given the  matter no serious copsideration up  to the present.  Mr.  Uren  also said his  friends hafl  endeavored  to induce him, to     seek  election,   but  he  did  not  intend doing so. '  Aid.  Blair  was  called upon at his  residence this morning,  and  said he  had not the'slightest intefction    of  becoming a candidate at  tiie coming'  elections,   either  for  the   mayoralty  or to the aldermanic board.  Mr. P. Malonc stated that he had  not to do so. While 1 have had time no intention o{ seeking office or the  to devote to the necessary duties in Colinoil asain. He would not be able  the past, I shall not have* next vear, lo (,eV0,fi the.necessary .time another  as my business is now demanding all year' while Mr- W- Bevcridge said,  my aUcntion. Then, again, the un- .on aCCOl,Ilt of J'is business ties, he  progrcssiveness of the citizens would, j would not under any consideration  it._il were possible for   rue  to devote   again seek office  the necessary time, not by any  means be an inducement to again  seek election. The electric light bylaw was, as you know, defeated, and  thci local improvement by-law Vvhich.  if it were passed, would be a means  whereby improvement to the cvty  could be -assured, the council would  not '.entertain."  "Do vou  wish  to make it known  Mr.   J.  Bickle sa'ill it  was  rather  too early at  present for  him, to say  whether he W'ould   seek office or not.  He had been'repeatedly asked to do  so,   but  had      not   yet mode  up his  mind.    He,  like many others spoken  to,, expressed the hope that Mr. Co-  burn might be induced to run again.  In addition to the names mention-  ad   above     several  other   gentlemen  that  you   have fully decided  not to  .have been spoken   of, but  these  The  again seek office?" was asked. ! Ledger     has. as yet, been unable to  "You are at liberty.to say that."   interview on  the question.  YOUNG GIRL  SUFFOCATED  Tacoma.

The. children   of   the  congregation  gathered  to hear vthe Rev.       Mr.  Rodgcrs.    The   sermon   was   impressive,   the subject  of discourse being  "The'Gospel."    First, there  is   absolutely  no  death   where  the  gospel  comes:  2nd,  the gospel declares that  the blood of Jesus  Christ blots out  all sin;  3cd, the gospel affirms     that  there :ie no judgment to them     who  are in Christ Jesais;  4th,-the gospel  is free.  faniilv were, ail afmid of her when in  such ' condition,   and   the   little  girl       There  is   an  interesting^story  be-  ran   awav'from  the house,  and   upon''     ' '"' ���������*--���������>   reaching home did not tell her mother   of  her sister's  condition.-  That evening Mrs. Ulsh sent one of  her sons  to .sec how the girls    wcro  getting  along,   but  he did   hot.     find  her.

A  SATISFACTION  The conclusion of the case brought  in behalf of the act that tiie pound-  Keeper is supposed to  enforce, winch  resulted  in   the imposition   of  aline,  is .most satisfactory  to  those of Lady smith's  residents  who  wis>h      the  c..,ty    to   progress  on modern lines,  and  last Friday s decisions  will   do  much  toward  making  the  lot of the  pound-keeper lighter,  for if the public finds out, and it surely  must with  a few  examples before  it,   ttiat       so  long as the pound-keeper acts within  "the   law he will     receive the support  of  the  council,   the lav  will  not le  so readily brokcrn.  Of     course,   a pound-keeper   should  not ', be needlessly  severe in  looking  after    infractions of the law.  It  is  not  the man   who   aceidcnUy   allows  an    animal   tosliay   throilgh       the  streets   and hastens  to make, it  secure   at  once   who   should be  looked,  after,   but  the one who  willfully,   or  by  shear obstinacy insists  on violating the lawr.   In such cases whether  a dog   tax is not   paid , or  a cow     is  oh   the  street,  encourage  the  pound-  .kceper to enforce the lu-w.' He is en-  tilled   to  the support  of  those oi the  public who wiiS to see law  and or-  !der prevail.  ������������������������������������o ���������  ���������,QUEER   MARRIAGE TANGLE  'One of the ���������m6st-remarkabic"mar-  riagc tangles ever known has just been  presented at Toledo, Ohio, where Edward and Fred Metzgar. twins, made  application for licenses to marry sisters, ai.so twins.

His mother tended him  affectionately,   but,   being  an only son  he naturally     became a     spoilt child.  The chief blemish in his character was  his refusal  to  abandon the food of his  infancy.  Now, a two year-old bun calf is  practically full-grown. ...The IJodgcr  weighs three-c|juar(ers of a ton and  his mother is now only hair his size.  Of late she has been trying to ween  him. but the Dodger refused lo realize'  that he had become a grown-up.

This  siiakvskm is the newest novelty in  llu dress of women motorisls. At  present there is only one anaconda  coat in existence,' and its inventor,  Mr. (1 miner, proudly showed it yesterday  to a reporter.  It was an elegant production, tlU'ce  quarter length,'in  delicate shades   of  cream  color   and   brown,   with   cuffs,  collar and  reveis of beaver  fur. and  lined  with  brown satin.  "Although anaconda skin is not  difficult,-to obtain,',! said the inventor of the coat, "the matching of  sufficicnl skins is the great difficulty  The coat is made of four skins and  one of the most attractive points in  its  favor is  its extreme lightness.   ,  "Anmcoii'da skin   is as flexible    and  soft  as broad   tail, and  its durability  is  practically everlasting.    Its bright  and scaly -surface is pever dulled, aiul  will  never     wear out.    It is several  degrees warmer than any' known fur-,  and  as a trimming anaconda  skin is  a-'novelty   this ' season.

In a hundred rock  maple trees . perhajs one is ai birds-  eye. Nobody can pick the specific  tree out by inspecting the bark, or the  manner of Ihe gro,wth. Y'o,u may  have to chop 200 trees before you  find one that is   worth the sacrifice.  Fact is, the Woodpeckers make all  the birdseye maple there is. In Hying about the woods they come to a  rock maple tree that yields very  sweet sap m the season when sap is  i mining. JMost birds like sweets���������  woodpeckers are very fond of sugar.  Having found a tree yielding a large  per cent, of sugar the birds peck holes  in the trunk and then stand against  the bark and drink the sap as it  oozes out.
