Lanvbton who, in the early part of  August     travelled through this district posing as a civil and electrical  engineer attached to the staff of the  Canadian     Pacific Railroad, reached  Carleton  Place August  18  and coincident with   his  arrival     was an ad-  vertisemmt     in  thc Toronto' prep."*,  calling for ten men to go and help  fix electric machines  in  British  Columbia,   He engaged ,a room in one of  the  hotels  and   waited   there  for replies.-    Applicants   for  the  position  received  an  answer  by  return  mail  Uiat.it would be necessary for them  to  forward  him the sum of ten dollars for a guarantee) of good faith on  their    part,   upon  receipt  of  which  they - would  be furmehed .with free  transportation   over   the   C.P.R.   to  destination,  the ten dollars to ,be refunded    to     them as soon     as they  started work.  The   thing   looked   all  right,   especially as Lambton replied to the ;M"-  plicants on Canadian  Pacific note paper,     so   in   came  many  ten dollar  bills.    Some   of   the   applicants   not  receiving   within  reasonable   time the  document  that would  ensure them: a  free ride over the C. P.

London,  it       is    known perfectly well  that the Japanese legation  in  London   know    that      a secict   treaty  has been  made between   the  C/.ar of Russia  and      the   Emperor  of   Japan,  despite  the  usual diplomatic    denials.   These   '"acts   concerning   tlu  treaty  and  its  purposes can   be staled   on the  highest authority.  The  Kaiser advised the Czar   to     make  a-secret   treaty   when  tihcy  met on   their yachts llohenxollern     and    Polar Star  in  the  Baltic Sea.  The  intermediaries   in' the   negotiations      were    the Japanese  Minister  in   London,   and   the   German Amliassador in St.. Petersburg. ~  King Edward helped in   the making of the treaty  ..It .provides  that ��������� the  Czar, of ���������Russdru-the   Czar not the ������������������-.mpiue,  shall   Pay   $500,000,000   indemnity  to 'Japan  in five  years,  less tho  amount which  Russia will   pay   the Japanese   for   the care      and  maintenance   of   Russian   prisoners   01   war,   $100,0011,000,   as1 provided  in   the treaty  of Ports mouth.  It is reported also'that Russia agrees ��������� to give Japan, a free  hand in China, though this point is not so certain as others.  The compact was made without the Knowledge even of Baron  Komura and' Mr.  Witte. ��������� .       ���������       .  The.Czar- awl Emperor of Japan bound themselves solemnly  to secrecy  about the   treaty.  Emperor William desired peace, be had 'vis own reasons, but  he desired peace. That the Kaiser was sincere and helped all  through. When the Kaiser met. the C'/.ar,.he told him that,he  wished peace, but that the Russian people would have his throne  if he had to pay indemnity. William told him mor-t likely Japan  would agree to peace without indeniiiit.y. He finally advised the  Czar  to  offer secrctcly  to pay  indemnity  out   of!   his own   pocket.  Thc Emperor of Japan acquiesced  in   this  proposal.  -    It  made   peace  certain,   "Saved     Russia's     face,"   and   Japan  needs  the money.  loxicadon.

CHINESE  SMUGGLED   ON  ,THE   UMATILLA.  Seattle,  Sept.  8.���������Two  Chinese arrested in Seattle on Monday by Immigration Inspector Ellis yesterday  confessed  to the inspectors that they  had entered  this country  from Vancouver on the steamer Umatilla, and  that they had been given passage by  some of the firemen of,the boat. The  Chinese were taken down to the Urn'"  atilla  before     she  sailed  for      the  south,   but  declared   through 1 an   interpreter     that the man  who gave  them  passage was" not aboard.  Neither of the Orientals possessed  a certificate   of  admission   to      this  country.     The Chinese arrested will  be taken before a United States com' *  missioner and   will   probably be ordered  deported.  ft was adviseablc,. therefore, he said,  to be satis'licd  witn   present  terms.  lu conclusion, Baron .Yamomoto  said that Russia was sure to build  aslliirg n,\vy and that JaP.in must  be 11 cpaml to make adequate provisions' for such  a contingency.

MANY MEN  KILLED IN  EXPLOSION  TROUT  FOLLOWING   SALMON  AT  INDIAN  RIAER.  Vancouver,  Sept.   9.���������A  very heavy  run of cohoe and dog salmon is occurring on Indian river, at the head  of the North   Arm and Inlet, and it  will  likely continue  for some weeks.  Mr. R. T. Burtwell, fisheries officer, who has just returned from a  (our of'North Arm waters, states  that the run of fish Js ienormous', and  is a sight well worth witnessing. In  many of the eddies the waters, are  black with  the fins  of  the fish.  Sea trout, enormous fellows'-; are  following the salmon up the stream  to the spawning beds. Tbe trout -  raid the spawning grounds -jn order  to steal the ova after it has been de  positerl in the stream bed by the  female fish. Mr. Burtwell s'lyrtes he  saw several fishermen with rod and  line making good catches of trout.  The fish were game and were taking  the fly readily.  While on Indian River Mr. Burtwell detected an illegally placed net  and destroyed it. It was "(peing used  for salmon���������not  for  trout.  HOW   A   HAUNTED  CASTLE  WAS   SOLD.

American     and  Magazine, the  Hearst,     contention     being  that   the  right   lo    such  combination   belonged  to a special section of one of his papers.   Issue     was really joined as to  lhe right    to use thc word American,  which hundreds of publishers use with  out 1 lie     least idea that they jrwre enjoying a monopoly-   Judge Holt li*as  decided     that the     special  section is  simply an     integral part ot the newspaper- with r which it is published and  not   m any     sense a   magazine-, also  lhat   it cannot,     possibly be damaged  by the publication of a magazine pure  and simple, no matter what the title.

"Haunted  houses"     are  generally  at -a discount   when  they   come into  the  market,  your average householder,   protesting that     he    is not the  least hit superstitious,   would  never  dream of taking  one  of them,  even  at half the     rent of a house exactly  similar in accommodation, but above  suspicion   in  the  matter  of   ghosts,  says   a London   exchange.   Yet  some  enterprising  house agents  have just  proved     that,  after    a4i,  it is some-  time.s an excellent  thing  for  a place  lo come  into the  market  with     the  iepulalion   of  being   haunted.   Augill  ''astle, an ancient  Westmorland scat,  's  a case in point,   as   the  following  particulars   will   show Augill   Castle  is near     Kii*k',y      Stephen, and is a  noble  pile.    It formerly belonged  to  lhe Lords  Wharton,  and  was  rebuilt  10  or 50  years  since-    Until recently the place had  the  reputation     of  being haunted, the particular amusement of the ghost,   according  to repute, being ,to stalk about the castle  to      the  accompaniment   of   moving  lights.    The  castle  contains  a large  amount  of  accommodation,   with     a  fine  entrance  hail,  panelled   in   carved  oak,  and  extensive cloisters. Outside     there is good     stajbling,   with  nice  garden   and  grounds   and      surround: (rig park lands.    A firm  of agents  advertised  the-property  in      a  London   Journal  a few months   since  as  a "haunted castle"   for  sale,   and  this caught the eye of the American  playwright,   Mr.   Paul   Kester���������   author  of  "Sweet  Nell of  old Drury" ..  ���������then  residing  in  Virginia,  U.S.A.,  Mr. Koster at once opened oorrespon  dence with   the agents,  and,  telegraphing     that he was  willing to  buy  the castle and the  whole of its contents at the price asked,     remitted  tihe     deposit  money  by  cable.   Mr.  Kester     with his family  arrived in  England by the Cymric about      a  fortnight ago for the purpose of taking possession. _ _   ^j *-",  ���������v.
