PRIZE BEAUTY
IN KLONDIKE
Exalted in Madison Square Garden
last December as a modern Venus de
Milo, Miss Emma Ncwkirk has advanced one more step in her triumphal career and has become thc bride
of a Klondikcr.
Miss Ncwkirk arrived in Dawson
from her home .in Santa Monica, Cal.
anil she and Edward Ellis were'married in Dawson Sunday, and lelt for
Fairbanks, where they' will make
their home and where the groom will
enter business. Mr. Willis is a
Klondikcr of '08, he is best known in
Dawson as from Sulphur creek, where
lie has been in business.
Carrying oil thc honors by popular
vote last December, Miss Ncwkirk
won tbe $1,1100 beauty prize at the
Madison Square Harden in competition with Llie beauties of thc continent sliui'Liy afloiwarils won a niiiii-
' ber ol athletic events which proved her a woman ol rare accomplishments as well as charm. Physical
development is largely the basis oi
the coming Klondike bride-to-be, and
"it Was ou the actual measurements
conforming with those o,f the world-
famed Venus of Milo, that Miss Ncwkirk established her prowess.
Miss Itcst, her rival, according to
the critics, lacked one-thirty-sccond
ol an inch perfection. The large toe
uf her left fool missed tbat much
elassic length. The coming Yukon
queen lacked nothing in that respect.
Her figure in every respect confornir
cd to the canons of health and beauty, ami, therefore, Miss Ncwkirk won
over all competitors the $1,000 prixe
for a perfect womanly figure at the
physical culture exhibition, Madison
Square Garden.
Through the. alluring stream ot
flattery of an idolizing wo.idthc love
ol this latter-day Venus remained as
pcrlcct as her beauty. Faithfulness
was not short of charm, and the
tender tics that sprung between the
lieautitiil woman and, Edward Willis
years ago in Santa Monica burned
steadily aud ardently. Mr. Willis Visited the States last winter, and tho
two old sweethearts then agreed (that)
they should meet in Dawson ' ithis
month ami become man and wife.
ANXIOUS TO. ACT.
Washington, net. 17.—The war iu
the East has enlisted the, closest attention ol the United States administration and it Is felt that the time
is approaching when It will bo.,In order lor the great neutral powers to
move towards the restoration ol
peace. President Roosevelt has
from thc first stood ready tn use his
good offices to stop hostilities on a
liasis favorable to both belligreants,
but lie is stopped from moving by
the fact that It has been the unbroken rule ol tlie United States government to wail until it Is assured
(Jiat both sides to a controversy ol
this kind are willing that the United States should act. There has
been so fat tin open proposition even
If it lie truthfully stated that even
an Indirect overture has come to
Washington irom St. Petersburg or
Tokio, but it is believed that the
Mgns point to an early move In that
direction.
CHINESE CONSPIRACY.
Wong AH Lum, another Victoria
Chinaman, halt been arrested ou the
charge of perjury, alleged to have
been committed by him while a witness for the defence in thc trial of
Wong Gow and Wong On, charged
with murder of Man Quan, the Chi.
n^sc theatre manager. Thc perjury
is claimed to have been iu his [statement that he was not in Man (Juan's
room when Wong Hung entered on
the night ol the murder. Bail wis;.
lixed at $5,000, the prisoner in that
amount and two sureties of $2,500
each. Thc case was icmauoeil until next Friday.

JAPANESE SHOES.
The Japanese shoes, or "gcta," as
I hey arc called, are one of the singularly distinctive features of Japanese life which will strike the observer with wonderment as soon as
lie sees them looming along the 'roadway, or hears them scraping the
gravel with an irritable squeak that
makes his very nerves shudder. Nevertheless, awkward though the shoes
appear, they are of a kind constituted to make the lect as hard as sheet
iron and ankles as strong as steel
girders, says thc London Chronicle
The shoes are divided into . two
varieties; the low shoe is called Hie
"komageta," and is only used whin
tire road is in good condition. The
high shoes named "asliida," are
worn when the weather is rainy and
the roads are muddy. Both kinds
have a thin thong attached to the
surface to secure thctn to the lect.
whicli are therefore not covered as
if they were in shoes, hut arc left
exposed to atmospheric conditions.
The "komageta" resembles somewhat the Lancashire clog, and their
construction merely' entails the carving of a block of wood to thc proper size. The "ashida," however,
are of more complicated designs.
have two thin pieces of wood, about
three inches high, nt right angles
to the soles, ami, occasionally, in
the case of priests or pilgrims, only
one bar attached.
Some of the "geta" worn by little
girls are painted in many colors, nnd
others havo .a tiny bell hanging from
a hollow place al the back, whicli, ns
it tinkles in a mystic way, heralds
tho approach of children. The superior makes arc covered witli mats
made of panama. Thc highest price
amounts to about ten yen, or $5,
while the cheapest Is less than 10 sen
or a few cents; but then tho "goto"
will not last longer than a month,
and once out ol repair can never lie
mended.
Learning to walk oh a "gcta" is
an exceedingly dlfliqult process. Indeed it is far easier to acquire skating or stilt walking. The aver igo
child In Japan takes about 2 months
lielore being ablo to move along on
thc national tootgeair, and the little
ones repeatedly slip from thc wooden blocks, falling to the ground,
which scorns to their miniature; imaginations n considerable distance
beneath them. Although foreigners
usually take with readiness to tint
customs of Japan tlicy aro absolutely unable to manipulate the perilous.
"geta."

Fifty-two Feet High
Structure to Be A Hundred and
Seventy Feet In Length—Immediate Construction
There will soon be a fine hew bxidge
over the Nanaimo river near Haslam
creek to replace thc old government
structure which has outlived its
term of usefulness. Thc plans
which arc now in the olHcc of Mr.
Thomson, the Government Agent,
call for a fine bridge built ot
timber about 170 feet long with an
eighty-foot soau at a. huighth of (Midfeet above the' water. The roadway
is twelve leet. wide and the wlidfe
structure will be very substantial,
and well suited lo the purpose intended. The plans were specially
drawn by C. II. Cookson, of the
Lands and Works Department.
The work will be started at once
and carried out as speedily as possible.

Arrangements arc being made for

London in tlie easily part of November, under the chairmanship ol Mr.
Lyttlelon, the Colonial Secretary
The exact date of the gathering will
largely depend upon the movements
of Sir William Mulock, the Postmas-
tor-Gcncral ol Canada, which at the
present moment arc uncertain, ow>

While the battle ot Shakhe River
has obviously resulted in a Japanese
victory, today's despatches indicate
that Kuropatkin's defeat was lat
from being as crushing as the news
of Saturday and Sunday presaged.

lapanese, while himself sustaining
raSualties 'which arc dcfieriloVd as
'appalling." At Koveral critical
points along the extended line, the
Russians have launched attack alter
attack at the Japanese and in some
instances succeeded in driving them
out and occupying their positions.
In one such attack they captured 1 i
guns. These, however, are apparently but Isolated successor in what
is a general defeat.
An official report to St. Petersburg says that tlie cannonading was
reopened along the entire front this
morning. No official advice hut; lieen
received from Japanese sources, hut
a despatch from Tokio based on "reliable private sources," says the
Japanese continue their advance.
STILL ADVANCING.
Tokio, Oct. 17.-(Noon)—It is reported from a reliable source that
the Japanese are continuing their advance and that they have occupied
additional positions south of the
Shakhe river. The lelt army occupied Wufukiatun at noon yesterday,
destroying lour or five battalions of
Russian infantry and several batteries of artillery ami crushing by repulsing a subsequent counter attack.
Artillery from thc centre and infantry from the lelt army arc harassing thc Russian retreat. Gen. Oku
has attacked the main strength of
tlie Russian right based at Chicn
Pass and Chuangtsou and is now op-
crating to block the Russian retreat
along the railroad. Official confirmation of the above is not obtainable.

quickly converted the temple into
ruins. Therefore tlie Russians were
forced to leave the Japanese in possession of the Temple, and during
the the whole of yesterday the Russians held one-half ofthe village and
the Japanese the other hall.
A pool of water in the village separated tiie combatants, forming a
sort of neutral lake. The Russians
and Japanese soldiers occupied the
neighboring huts and Irom the shelter of earthen walls of the Chinese
court yards tlicy hurled jokes at
each other to the accompaniment of
occasional ride bullets when any
one was rash enough to show his
head.
Thc village of Lamontang (Lamut-
ing) on the south ol the Shajklic
River and slightly cast of the railroad was also simultaneously occupied by the Russians and Japanese.
At 3 o'clock in the afternoon the
Russian offensive operations were
crowned with success and the Russian right moved forward to the village of Wuchang, which was carried
by a'brilliant assault against a determined resistance, tlie Japanese
finally abandoning it with heavy loss.
At 5 o'clock thc Russians occupied tlie village ol Chenlianpu which
lies almost parallel with Linchipu on
tlio north side of the Shakhe River,
and to the west of wiierc if bends
south ami this concluded the fighting at Ihe Shakhe river Sunday.
The fighting ceased entirely nt
night-fall, everything wns wrapped in
darkness and under a black starlets
sky, the Russian soldiers brought up
their supplies from thc licid ditches,
to the trenches while ov«cr Japanese
positions hovered great flocks ofcar-
roon crows.

will follow today and tomorrow.

TURNING THE TABLES.
Mukden, Oct. 17.-(li.5f p.m.)—Yesterday the Russians were not only
successful on the right, but carried
out some brilliant movements on the
left, where they assumed an energetic offensive movement against the
J.i I'l'csc po Ition al Soukh,i',.ing.
Soukhatung Is on tiie high toad
which runs tn Ucnuit/.u, joining the
Mandarian road, where the Hun river intersects it. It is a mile north
of the Hun Pass, which is lour miles
north ol Shakhe. The Pclrovsky
Neuchlct and will Minstrand regiments stormed the Japanese trenches
at Soukhatung and. carried them after despcrale resistance, capturing
leu guns. The Japanese losses were
enormous.
AT CLOSE QUARTERS,
den, Oct. 17.-15.45 p.m.)-On Saturday at midnight, the Valkgliilsk
regiment moved nut of its positiiui
north of Sakhc to capture the village of Fishinpu. The Russians
kept quiet and then charged
tho bayonets, clearing nut the Japanese at the south ond of tlie village,
hut at thc other end stood a Buddhist temple, which the Japanese Converted Into a fortress. They dug
up trenches around its stone walls, j
of the Russian    centre by enfilading
the Japanese flank.
Thc weather today was warm and
clear but it grew suddenly colder
this evening.
RUSSIANS TAKE GUNS.
St. l'eterHiurg, Oct. 17— General
Sakharoff. telegraphs that the Russians yesterday captured Lonely Tree
Hill, south of Shakhe and captured
eleven Japanese guns and one quick
llrer.
RUSSIANS HOLD THEIR OWN.
St. Petersburg, Oct. 17.-Official
report; received by the war office
dated early this morning say that
the battle was resumed at daybreak
today and that tlie Russians sl.ill<
hold the right bank of the Shakhe
river, that the pressure on the Russian left has been relieved, and that
the contest in continued on the right
where the Japanese arc still seeking
to break through thc Russian centre
in order to get possession of fold rail-
with ' load and cut off the Russian army
Irom Mukden. Unofficial reports say
llie Russians had .sonic successes at
Shakhe river' yesterday, where Gen.

Gen. Kiiriipatkln Is able to stand
like a stone wall. The right wings ol
both sides are believed lo be greatly
exhausted by their long sustained effort. The main fear is that the extreme quiet on the left may portend
some move on the part of the Japanese which Kuropatkin has not yet
been apprised of. Gen. Grippenberg,
who is to command the second army,
said to thc Associated Press this
morning: "Even if Kuropatkin has
been badly dcfealed, provided it docp
not end in a rout and disaster, in
my opinion his offensive movement
should be approved. Only by hammering away can we ultimately hope
lo smash thc Japanese. Kuropatkin
is isimply preparing the ground for
us when we arrive with thc second
army."
EIGHT DAYS' FIGHT.
Berlin, Oct. 17. (11.51 a.m.)-Col.
Gaedke, the war correspondent of the
Tageblatt, telegraphs from Mukden
that when he left the battle field
yesterday at 31.10 p.m., a general ui-
gagement was in progress, which was
not decided, although not :infavn:able
lor the Russians. Thc battle oncred
at 7 o'clock in the morning, in miles
south ol Mukden. At J . n lie
heard heavy artillery firing in Ihc -
mountains eastward, where lie understood Gen. Stakclbcrg was attacking
the Japanese right flank, 'n immense number of wounded ' re ar-
day of the fighting, the weather vas
riting at Mukden un this, the nghth
line. Fol. Gnedkc sent another dispatch dated Saturday, which was detained at St. Petersburg, describing
llie operations on tlie Russian right,
which he accompanied. He says that
after four days of hard fighting with
heavy losses, the Russians had reached a point at thc base of the height
of Tumin Pass, which was occupied
by the Japanese. Thc Russians were
only about 30(1 to 5U0 yards distant
Irom the Japanese position ami intended storming them the morning of
the 13th, but thc order to retreat
arrived during tile night. The Russians fought with admirable persistence and skill. Their artillery was
somewhat greater than that of the
Japanese in number of guns, and far
superior in efficiency. The inlantry
and artillery cooperated with great
success. In retreating from the pass
he Russians got away without firing a shot. The wounded were carried away on stretchers. The incessant artillery firing was heard from
the Russian centre and right on the
fourteenth, and was considerably
Stronger than thc firing at. Liao
Yang. The Russian losses up to the
evening of October 13th were estimated at 15,00(1.
POUNDING THE SHIPS.
Tokio, Oct. 17.—It is aulhoritive-
ly reported that the Russian fleet at
Port Arthur is suffering severely
Irom the fire of the Japanese land
batteries. Reports of the recent attempt hy the fleet to sortie arc unfounded, as is the reported capture
of another blockade runner.
BALTIC FLEET OFF DENMARK.
Fakkebcrg, Langcland Island, Denmark, Oct. 17.—The Russian Baltic
Sea Heel passed the southern extremity of Langcland Island this morning. The Danish cruiser Heimdal exchanged salutes wi|fh the Russian
flagship and then accompanied thc
Russian, vessels to the northward.
Thc fleet comprises 24 ships. Shortly
afterwards the vessels anchored in
Langcland Bay to take on coal.
There steamers were awaiting them.

WAR'S DEPRESSION.
According to late despatches,   the
war has brought   terrible depression
and misery in thc South Eastern provinces of European Russia and    the
poorer people are reported to ho in
dire straits, owing t0 the stagnation
of Industry and commerce.   If this he
true, a continuation of this distressing state ol affairs will undoubtedly
result in bringing about an end to
thc war eventually.   In some parts
of Russia the crops are reported enormous, but so occupied are thc railways in transporting troops to    thc
front that they are unable to   move
the crops to market for distribution.
Naturally, this means that while no
no portion of thc country suffers for
lack of food, the farmers wfth huge
grain crops on their hands may also
be in equally unpleasant predicament
by not being able to dispose of their
produce In order to pay their debts.
The whole interior traffic of a country cannot be suddenly disorganised
without very serious results and   a
long continuance of this means ruin
and     disaster.   The moving ot huge
bodies of men and supplies no doubt
produces good to some, but It     is
largely unproductive work that maintained for a'lcngthy period, saps the
life blood of peaceful industry.   It is
said, too, that money is beginning to
fail the    government and that there
are even being advances made to the
heads of the Greek church for the use
of the funds belonging to the church
for prosecuting the war.   It will be
many years before cither Russia   or
Japan recovers from the heavy drain
now being made on their resources,
though in the case of Japan, her foreign commerce is not being so largely affected, the Russians being practically driven oil the sea in the Pacific.

LONG    ENGAGEMENTS.
A great deal of space is being
de
voted to thc question ol marriage
and divorce in thc United States
press just at present. One can hardly pick up a paper without seeing
several references to actions taken or
disoussions indulged in by various religious bodies, and backing these are
the opinions of the editorial writers
giving their advice upon the subject.
A body of Chicago Methodists has
gone a step beyond the advocacy of
stricter divorce laws; the good brothers have laid down a rule that "a
long courtship—long enough to test
tho quality of love" was advisable.
The exact period Is not given, and
coming from Chicago the advice is
therefore not definite enough. People
do things in a hurry in the Windy
City. If the satrlcal references of
rival towns or the comic papers aro
tcj be taken as a guide, a long engagement, as understood in Chicago,
might mean a whole day or at thc
limit a week, for that is quite a long
period comparatively in a place where
marriages are celebrated one day, a
' divorce the next and a new alliance
formed hall an hour later. The VJlock
River Conference" tnnst lie more explicit and set down n time limit for
engagements.   - i

How Many People In Ladysmith?
A canvass of the city is being made for subscribers to
tho Daily Ledger. It has. been suggested by some of the
iv '.fioss men tliat it would be of interest and value to the
; nullity to know how many people live in-Ladysmith
and immediate vicinity, 'ihis means all ofthe actual residents within half a mile of the postoffice in Ladysmith, exclusive of Chinese.
Each subscriber to the Daily Ledger will be handed a
card and asked to write dowu a guess of the number of
people our census, which will be taken with reasonable accuracy will show.
Envelopes will be given with the card. Write down your
guess, sign your name, put the card in the envelope and seal
it up; either hand it to the canvasser or leave it at the
Ledger office. All guesses must be iu during October; none
will be counted after that date.
The census will be computed by the 15th of November.
The envelopes will then be opened and the following prizes
given:
1. To the person who guesses nearest to the exact number of people living within one-half mile of the postoffice
(exclusive of Chinese) $20.00 in gold.
2. The person coming second nearest, $10.00 in gold.
3. The person coming third nearest, $5.00 in gold.
If two or more persons tie for any place the money will
be divided.
This contest will be absolutely fair. No person in any
way connected with the canvass will either give out any information or be allowed to compete.

A. NARROW ESCAPE
Gov. N. J. Bachelder, of New
Hampshire, dislikes tramps, according to an exchange.
. "One of my first experiences with
tramps," he said the other day,
"happened In my early youth.
"On a fine summer morning I was
taking a walk through the country.
The road was white and firm. ' In
the green fields the farmers worked'
iu their brown overalls. The birds
sang in the woods and the air Uas
sweet with tlio scent of pine trees,
grass and flowers.
"Tn a lonely place a tratfip laj* under a tree. He rose on my approach
and in a melancholy tone he told me
a hard-luck story and asked for alms
"I gave him some small change,
anil then I said accordingly:
'* Down there on my left, .hi}
fi'icno, there is a farmer who wants
men to help him thresh wheat.'_
" 'Thankee, sir,' said the tramp,
turning to the right. 'Thankee. 1
might have gone down that way accidental like.' "

The divorce. records in Spokane,
show some curious fluctuations. There
were 150 granted from January 1,
1902, lo January 1, 1903, and there
were 225 granted in the succeeding
year ended January 1, 11104. Of late
apparently there was a slight decline
in the activity ol thc divorce courts
for. only 200 were granted in the 12

GOOD OLD POSER RE-POSED.
The clever Dr. Ritchie,, of Edinburgh, met with his match while examining a student.
He said: "And you attended the
class for mathematics?"
"Yes.'.'
"How many sides has a circle?"
"Two," said the student.
.   "What are they?"
What a laugh in thc class thc scu-
dent's answer produced when he
sais:   "An inside and an outside.
But this was nothing compared
with what followed. The doctor
said to the student. "And you attend the moral philosophy class
also?"
"Yes."
"Well, you would hear lectures on
various subjects. Did you ever hear
one ou cause and effect?"
"Yes."
"Does the effect ever go before the
cause?"
"Y'es."
"Give mc an instance."
"A man wheeling a barrow."
The doctor then sat down and proposed no more questions.—Providence

ILLUSTRATION OF DIPLOMAC
"Will you give mc, sir, a good
definition of diplomacy?" a reporter
said to the Spanish minister to\America, Kmillio dc Ojeda.
"Instead of a definition I'll give
you an illustration," the diplomat
replied. And smiling a little, he began:
"There was a certain tenant fanner who waited. ou his landlord one
morning in great distress ol mind.
" '1 havo bad news to report to
you , sir,' he said.
"The landlord looked up from his
newspaper with a scowl.
'!''Had newM?- ha ■ sWltd. ■' "Bad
news?    Bad news of what sort?'.
"The tenant rubbed one foot over
the other and twisted his dusty cap
nervously in his huge hands.
" 'A terrible sort, sir,' he faltered
'Your black bull and my black bull
got to fighting this morning, and
my black bull gored yours to death.'
" 'I hold you responsible," the
landlord cried excitedly, and be
jumped up from the chair and paced
back add forth at a tremendous gait
'1 hold you responsible, farmer.'
" 'But, sir,' the tenant objected,
'you can't say I was tq blame. The
two bulls got together, they fought
and one was killed. That is all there
was lo it. How was I to blame?'
" 'I am a justice ofthe peace,'
said the landlord. 'I know the law,
and the law says in plain terms that
that the owners of dangerous animals are responsible for thc damage
that they do. Your bull killed
mine, farmer, and you must make
good Ihe loss to mc. That is thc
law.1 '•*-•   '        "—  '   *   " -'
" 'That is the law, is it, sir ?'
said the tenant.
" 'That Is the law.'
" 'All right, sir, I will stand by
the law. But'—and here the tenant,
a true diplomat, permitted himself
to smile faintly—but sir, I was
guilty ol a.slight mistake when I
said my bull killed yours. It was
your bull, sir, that killed mine.' "—

A JEALOUS DOG.
Enraged at the attention shown
the 3 year old son, the family dog
of M. P. Horton, who lives at Belle
Fountain, Benton County, Oregon,
, attacked the baby and would have
killed him but for the bravery of
his 0 year old sister. Seizing an axe
the 1 ttle girl swung with all her
might and brought the blade down
on tlie head of the brute as he tore
at her brother's body, The dog
let go -liis hold and ran away howling. He came home after a nlghtls
absence and was immediately shot
by the father.-
Prom the top of the head forward
several inches of the scalp of the
child was ripped open so that eight
stitches by a surgeon were required
to close the wound. The forehead
was lacerated and a section of the
front of the bone of the eye-socket
was bitten away. The eye was
torn from its socket so that it hung
on the child's cheek, There' is hope
that tlie eye - may be saved.

DIVORCES  IN  WASHINGTON.
Washington has apparently far outstripped South as the prize state fur
granting divorces, says the Spokane
Spokesman-Review. In the year ended October 1, there were 211(1 divorces granted In Spokane county. As
Spokane county has about 11 per
cent, of tho population of thc state,
all the divorces issued lu Washington
on that ratio, would number about
1850.
•South Dakota, with a population
ot 500,000 is bragging complacently
of 087 divorces within the past year
That means one divorce per- year lor
every 500 people,   /
In Spokane county there was one
divorce for every 400. people. To
figure it another way, there was a
divorce for every 80 families in tho
county. In 20 years ol married life
therefore, on Unit basis, each couple

LADYSMITH 3; EAGLES 0.
It looks like moulting season for
the Eagles just now, for yesterday
tlicy had their finest leathers plucked out to adorn the caps of the triumphant Ladysmith team, who beat
them 3 goals to a duck's egg. The
Eagles were game birds and struggled strenuously to keep their plumage intact, but it was no avail. Their
opponents had the best combination,
though the general play wqs irathcr
ragged and shows that, while individual stars ahinc out it will take a
bit more practice together to get.
Ihe best out ol the whole team. The
Ladysmith team at thc kick-oil played down • bill towards the bunkers,
and within hall an hour, Tom McMillan tscored first blood for them. They
succeeded in keeping the ball fairly
toward that end of the field for most
of thc first hall, but thc strenuous
efforts of Leahy in goal slopped several hard shots, and the Eagles'
bucking up kept things ovener till
the change of ends came. The Eagles
tried hard in thc next half to even
things up and it was only by thc excellent stopping qualities of Ninvmo,
that two very dangerous shots missed the mark, . Gradually the ball
was forced to the Eagles end and In
a mix-up in front otgoal was accidentally beaded through by Moly-
ncaux of thc Eagles. A third goal
was scored by Sanderson for the
Ladysmlith men before time was called.

BASEBALL RECORDS.
'.'Harry White, a pitcher ol the Chicago White Stockings, made a
world's record when he pitched forty-five innings of shutouts. The.only

made it while with tlie Pittsburg
club. Hla total was forty-one. In
11102 James H. Wiggs, then with the
Helena, Mont., team ol the Pacific
Northwest league, pitched forty-four
consecutive innings without a run
being scored against him. This was
in a recognized baseball organization,
but even this is eclipsed by Whitcli
marvellous work in his last five
games, as he went an inning more."
