LADYLMITH'S DARK DAY
AND ITS EFFECTS
Sun Seems to Fall an Hour Behind Hand
and Many People Rise That
Much Later
Pouring Rain, Heavy  Wind   and  Black
Clouds do Not Form a Scene Where
Every Prospect Pleases
"Did you oversleep yourself this
morning?"
A good many Ladysmith people
have to answer that question in the
affirmative, lor out ol a dozen men
of whom the inquiry was made, only
one could slate that he rose at his
usual hour, and that was not in
time to hear "cock crow."
At eight o'clock so dark were the
rain clouds that it was impossible to
write without tt lamp, and lelt dit-
nial ami dreary, as if llie sun itself
had been out too late at lodge meeting tlic night before and had risen iin
hour behindhand with that tiled
feeling and an unpleasant taste in
his mouth/. Many men did not reach
their offices iinl.il long alter tho usual hour, ami breakfast almost merged on lunch.
One gentleman whose hours are
fairly regular, admitted that it was
quarter to nine before he bad shaken oil dull sloth and was going up
Gatacre street from his hotel with
giant steps as if trying to overtake
tlie Meeting moments that would never return. Perhaps, however, 'the
mast horrible example was a nice
young man with louzzled hair -gener
ally parted in the middle, but    ap
parently this morning quite guiltless
ol brush or comb. He sat beside the
lire in his ollice altee nine o'clock,
shamelessly imbibing sustenance from
a huge 'bottle labelled "din," although the liquid within it - was.
slightly colored with milk. A dinner
pail like tbe miners carry was on the
floor beside him and between gulps,
ol thc beverage—he said it wat tea-
he- tore hasty mouthfuls from a huge
sandwich, utterly reckless of .his'digestion. He had to' admit that il
was long after eight liefore he awoke
to the affair's ol the world this morning and then shoveled on his clothes'
any old way and scooted'for town,
sending the ollice hoy to the hotel
lor his hunger appeaser. Ills collar
was awry aud he altogether looked
as if he had'turned: out of the wrong
side ol the bed. However, he was
only one ol many, but being young
and thoughtless, lie did not seem to
care much; but admitted that he hail
been out visiting sonic friends the
night before anil had not got home
till fairly late.
Thc wind whistled nnd blew half
a gale during the night and the waters ol the harbor rose in a heavy'
swell which one old' timer says was
the biggest he ever saw here.

Representatives Find The Reforms are Not as Large
as Wished
They  Are Allowed to Mw*
Privately Without Official Status
(Associated Press Despatches.)
St. Petersburg'! Nov. 10.—Today
may mark a red letter day in the
Russian calender. About a hundred
representatives ol Provincial Zcmst-
vos assembled privately at 2 o'clock
this aileinoon with the avowed purpose of presenting to Emperor Nicholas through Interior Minister Svia-
topollc Mirsky,' a truthful picture ol
the internal conditions oi Russia,
coupled with recommendations point-
ing out in-plain terms the necessity
for calling in legally empowered constituent assembly to have a direct
voice in the government, The word
"constitution,-" however, will he
carefully avoided. The Liberals have
been greatly excited by the developments ol the Inst lew days. The
meeting was to lie held at Duma, or
city hall, hut at the last moment,
the official auspices was refused, the
Enijioror withdrawing his consent,
sent.
Many of the Zemstvos representatives attribute tlie Emperor's attitude primarily to the inlluence ol
Grand Duke Sergius, M. I'ohcdonog-
liil, the procurer general of the Holy
•Synod and M. Sassonoff, a member
of tlic council of the .Empire, and indirectly to such reactionaries as
Merchersky, Stiumor and Suchinsky.
The two latter formerly were the
late Interior Minister Von Plchve's
ttlsistants who were promoted to thc
emmoil. ol the Empire. When Prince
Sviatopolk Mirsky dispensed wilh
their services the spectre ol a constitution was successfully raised, according to their view. Prince Svia-
lopalk Mirsky's friends, however,
have another side of the story. They
insist lhat he acted iu tlic sincere
eoiivicliun of what he believed tu be
the lust interests ot Zcmstovo s de-
iK'liipmeiit. They explain that when
lhc minister .begun the negotiations,
11. Shipoil and Pclrtmkavich and
Prince I vol! were scut to explain
'what thc meeting proposed to do
and the minister found that instead
of the ril representintives whom
he. had invited, one hundred representatives were to he present and that
they proposed to go much further
than their power authorized; They
werc ill a sense oflieinl representatives chosen by the Zcmstvos to present ' a memorandum lo the government, I
When thc Emperor declined to
grant permission however, Prince
SviaioliolK Mirsky 'Informed the representatives lhat although official
sanction was declined, they could
meet privately, police protection being' granted. Moreover, he himself at
once drafted a law for submission to
the council of thc Empire, the Zvuisl-
vos to eicct delegates to sit in a
consulative body in connection with
the department ol rural affairs ol his
ministry. This law will be immediately promulgated in order that
the Zcmstvos with their approaching
meetings , in December may choose
representatives.

the Zemslvos representatives here,

in their views, rejected the advice ol

speak plainly. Their programme has
a negative and positive side. Tiie

fourteen men. Eight of these were
miners and the balance were timber
men and drivers.
One man escaped in safety. His
light had gone out and he was on
his way to relight outside the mine,
the gas overtook him near the exit,
and, running lorward, he fell outside
almost overcome. He is still very
ill. Those near the mouth ol the
pit heard a rumbling sound, and in a
lew minutes a volley ot coal and
dust burst from the pit mouth to a
distance ol fifty yards. All ot those
inside the mine, -with one exception,
were killed.
The names of the English-speaking
men among tbe dead are: P.. Boyle,
Pennsylvania; W. Piatt, England; P.
Tciuiie, United States; J. Cllrcenmaii,
England; Jenkins, Wales.
The case ol Jenkins is particularly
sad, his wife and children having unit arrived Thursday Irom thc Old

month a year ago in the very same
spot, and was attended by lour fatalities. This was not an explosion,
but a blow-out.

New rYork, Nov. 19.—A London
despatch to the Times says there is
no doubt whatever that the Britisli

within its naval dispositions. This

the strength ot the home fleet and
also lor the determination to retain.

There were about 400 signatures on

obtained, but on account of the precarious slate ol thc boy's health it
was thought best to gel It away

it is doubtful il he will

it is not at all likely that even if
no change is made in the sentence tie
will live long enough to sec it executed. An attempt is to be made to
have him removed Irom the condemned cell and placed in more comfortable quarters as speedily as possible.

HERRING CURING.
I-i view of .the conclusion arrived
at by Mr. Cowrie; the Scottish expert who speaks highly of the herring ol this coast, .it- seems to be
timely for Ladysmith to bestir herself and find out whether a herring
curing industry could be built up lor
this port. Not only docs Mr. Cowic
think the herring are belter than the
larger ones caught on thc Atlantic
coast, hut classes them as cioial to
the Scottish variety in which an immense, world-wide trade is done.
During the present summer the
government has had a number ol export ciiicis from Scotland giving lessons in curing to tlie fishermen in
the Maritime Provinces and ncflt
year a similar experiment is to lie
tried on this coast. It appears to
us that the Board ol Trado of Lady
smith might very properly take the
matter up, wilh a view to gotting
such information as to establish
whether it would prove profitable In
start the curing of the fish in the
vicinity of Ladysmitli. Wc need varied industries and it would seem
that wc arc quite as favorably situated as Nanaimo to engage in the
herring fishing. Now that an authority like Mr. C'owie lias given the
herring the stamp ol approval as to
high quality, why should wc not try
to develop this resource which lies
at our doors instead of waiting lor
some one else to come in and reap
our sea harvest? In this connection
it might be noted that besides thc
markets now available, the line ol
steamers to be placed on the route
between Mexico and Britisli Columbia will open a large and very profitable market for these llsh. The
Latin countries are all great ■ consumers oi llsh, both fresh and cured,
and there is no reason why British
Columbia should not get a great
share of this trade. The matter will
bear looking inlo.

INDIAN RELIGIONS.,
The oldest religiqn 'iry India, iViS;
stated in the general .report on thi
Indian census ol 1901, is the medley
of uncomfortaljUe superstitions known
as Animism, which conceives of man
as beset by shapeless phan'
mostly impersonal, requiring, diligent propitiation' by -.rites and magical formulae. Those returned as
Aniinists number 8,580,900 mostly
lound in Bengal. In the higher
forms ol Hinduism pantheism ' is
lound closely associated with a deeply ingrained belief ol transmigration, and is still mote universal be-'
liel in "karma." Between the extremes ol practical magic and pantheistic metaphysics Hinduism includes a bewildering variety ol pessimistic creeds. The number ol Bra-
manic Hindus in 1001 was 207,050,-
557, or seven in ten of tbe population.
Mohammedans numbered 62,458,077
or 9 per cent, more than in 1901.
Thc actual beliefs and practices ot
the Mussulmanns differ considerably,
and thc uneducated are deeply infected with Hinduism. Buddhism is
professed by 0,470,75. persons, an
Increase of 33 per cent. The Bur-
mans, although nominally Buddhists
adhere at least to thc ancient Nat.
or demon worship, Buddhism being
only the superficial polish. The Sikhs
who nearly all live in Punjab, and
the Jains, who live mainly in Bombay Presidency both tend to. des-
«rilic themselves as Hindus, so that
their respective numbers, 2,195,339,
and 1,33-1,138, are probably under
slated. Thc small but influential
.community ot Parsis (94,190) it
mainly lound in Bombay. Ol thi
.2,1123,241 Christians, 2,064,313 an
.natives, the number ot whom has'
increased by 31 per cent.
In Western India the returns wen
-welled by Ihe inclusion- ot famiiu
waifs, iu Madras and llengal tin
more degraded classes tend to be
conic converts, partly tor social reasons. Nearly two-thirds ol all
Christians arc in the Madras Presid
ency, including Cochin and Travail
core, where about 25 per cent olthi
people profess Christianity. Out oi
the total Indian Imputation in 1901
70 per cent, were Hindus, 21 pel
cent. Mohammedans, 3 iter cent. Bud
dhisls, 3 per cent. Animists, and 1
per cent. Christians.
THE PASTOR'S WISH.
The shepherd of a flock iu a certaii-
suburb of Chicago had been finding it
difficult to keep on good tetms witl
one ol thc tactions. While the members ot the congregation preserved ai>
outward show ot general tricndliucss
there was under the surface a bit
.etrness that, try as he would, tin
.preacher could not dispell.' Things'
kept getting worse and worse until there was no longer any attempt
to conceal the difference between tin
pastor and some twenty-live prominent members ot Ihe church. They
were sure to line up on different
sides of i every proposition that was
broached, and they spoke in anything but respectful terms of- one
another.
One Sunday morning just aitei
the minister and those who werc
opposed to him had been in con
[lict at a business meeting, the good
man arose In the pulpit and began
to tell his hearers ol experiences
that he had undergone ih an Ohio
city, before being called hither.
"At one time," he said, "we had
a terrible epidemic ol typhoid tcvci
and I hud occasion to see then hov,

His work in mysterious ways.
People who had previously been enemies were brought together in loving friendship by the afflictions that
were put upon them during these trying days. Old quarrels were forgotten, a spirit ol religious fervor
swept through the'town,'and I was
called upon to offer prayers in homes
where only wickedness and blasphemy existed before. The scourge
was terrible, but it also brought
glorious results. I remember that
on one Sunday twenty-four coffins
lay before me as I entered my pulpit to preach. Oh, that wc might
have a repetition ol that glorious
regeneration here." I

A STRANGE     RENT.
They were talking about strange,

"The 'queerest rent I know of,"
said a real estate operator, "is paid

"This family holds from the crown
