INVESTIGATES MURDER.
Superintendent llusscy, of the provincial police, has returned to Victoria from the northern part of Vancouver island, where he has been investigating tlie circumstances connected witli the murder of Kwrw.il.l.
a woman of the Nawytii Indians.
During the progress of a potlatcli,
Kvvrw.itl was murdered. She had
apparently been enticed from the big
house on the reserve to a distance of
about three hundred yards into tlic
woods. The body was lound next
day witli tlie head almost severed
from the body. 'I'he f.ockcts had iblccn
rilled, pointing to money ligving been
tire motive lor tiie deed. Provincial
Ollicer Woolacotl investigate, it.
When all the circumstances ' werc
brought lo ihe attention ol Supt.
Uussey, llie hitter decided Hint flic
chief ol Hie Nawytii Indians, Soli,
wltl, should be proceeded against tor
plotting In defeat tlic ends of justice. It was' set forth Hint the old
chief ban advised the Indians of lhc
tribes concerned that, tlicy should not
reveal anything respecting the circumstances of the murder. Tlic chief
was accordingly proceeded against
under the criminal code, convicted
nml sentenced to nine months' imprisonment for conspiring to defeat-
the cutis of justice, 'i'he chicl in
trotisetiuence made a statement implicating several Indians in tlie murder.
Mr. llusscy got considerable iuiur-
imition, but many ol Die Indians,
and elsewhere. Tbe further Invesli-
wcrc absent on a hunting expedition,
gallon nf il lias been left in the
hands of Constable Woolncoll.
An official announcement cemes
from Tokio tor.ay that thc Japanese
have occupied the summit of 203 metre hill. This important position lias
been the abject ol severe and continuous fighting and cablet! advices Irom
lime to time have indicated that
there has been sacrifice to : gain it..
203 metre hill Is a dominating
height in the range which lies to the
westward of the town of Port Arthur and according to reports it
command's an artillery range ol Port
Arthur and a portion "of thc main
town. Its approximate distance Irom
both-Tokio antl St. Petersburg indicate that isolated engagements of a
more or less severe nature are oc-
t tiring along thc Iront ol the Mnnchii
rinn armies, but it is not apparent
that thc main lorces nre engaged.
I'okio, Dec. l.—Thc Imperial army
headquarters announces that rlic Japanese troops besieging Port Arthur
arc in possession ol 20.1 metre bill.
The following despatch has been given out: "The army commenced a
bombardment against 203 metre hill

Gen. Nogi. "telegram announcing
tlic storming nnd capture of " 203

hy the Japanese people. It 'revives
hope, of an early capture of Port Arthur • proper. The people have never
despaired of Hie success of the besiegers but tlie fortitutlc ol thc elcfcii-
ers and Hie prolongation of flic siege
which exceeds by months the   most

I Today was the tlay set under the
conscript «ct when rlcruits could join

have joined the colors today under
the conscription has not been inane

DAD NE_'S FOR RUSSIA.
St. Petersburg, Dec. S.—The war
ollice is not yet prepared to accept
the report that the Japanese before
Port Arthur have taken 203 metro
hil,, but if;it is subsequently officially confirmed the war ollice admits
tllat it will be a desperate blow for
gallant idefenders of the fortress. Tho
position commands the harbor ami
if Hie Japanese can) mount siege guns
on its summit rbcy can drive out the
Russian squadron or destroy it nt
ils anchor. Those familiar with tire
supporting plans of Hie forts think
it is by no means certain Hint even
though the Russians nre foreoil lo
retire from 203 metre hill, the Japanese trail place in position heavy
guns against tire lire whicli the other
forts can bring to bear on it. Still
the war ol.ee officials reluctantly
agree that such a breech in; the chain
renders the position extremely critical and although the garrison might
be ali-e to bold out in'the Golden
Hill, Tiger's Tail, Liaoti Forts for
some tin , it may mark the beginning of the end. The war office is
conyjneed Hint with the approach of
Hie Russian second Pacific squadron
the Japanese considered that the elimination of the Port Arthur squadron as a lighting factor was absolutely vital, thus accounting for the
reckless sacrifice of life in order to
secure a position directly command
ing the harbor.
SOLDIERS HARDSHIPS.
] New York-, Dee. 1.—A Berlin despateli to tlic 'fiines quotes Hie lliol-
nisclic /.fitting as saying that thc
[Russian troops arc suffering greatly
owing to tlic lack of proper a'cconv
niodritioiis on their,way to the front,
(hi some of Hie military trains, not
even straw mattresses arc provided.

tlie fisheries question ns it ahectcd
Ilritish Columbia. When in Vancoiil

tiiine advocated tlic aupoinlnient of
such a commission, The hollowing
reply received yesterday Irom lion.
Raymond I'icfoiitaiiie by lhc secretary of tiie Fraser River Canncrsj
At sedation is self-explanatory.
"In reply lo your letter ofthe 8th
instant, I have decideil that alter all
it would he inopportune to proceed
immediately to the appointment of a
Ilritish Columbia Fisheries Commission, and I have decideil tb let the
commission slant! for a little until
the members of parliament rcpr.-
senting the provinl-e, qan consider
the ^proposal with mc in Ottawa. It,
will be no disadvantage; but a gain,
to havo the matter discussed personally with me before final slops arc
decided upon. Indeed, I could not at
Ibis stage take such steps, without
giving the members an opportunity
of expressing their view upon its
scope and work."

Russian Revolutionists and Re
formers Formulate Their
Plans Together
Demand Abolition of Autocracy Replacing It By Responsible Government
London, Dec. l.—Thc London Times
Paris correspondent sends a summary
purporting to be an account ol a secret conlerence recently held In Paris
by Hussion reformers, and revolutionists. It is stated that they agreed
to cooperate in an effort to reform
[the Russian government, recognizing
the following principles and fundn-
'riicntal demands:
I   "First—The abolition of the auto-
j cracy and the repeal of all measures ■
infringing on the constitutional right
of Finland.
"Second—The establishment of a
democratic regime baseu on universal suffrage.
Third—The right of each nationality to dispose ol the Russian '■ government."
Nine* societies, each ol large membership, are said to have been represented at Hie conference.
The Socialist leader M. Jaures,
today made public the text of a manifesto of the revolutionary, socialist
and other opposition parties in Russia which he says was issued simultaneously throughout Europe. The
manifesto is signed it),' representatives
of tlie various revolutionary and Socialist parties of Hie empire, particularly in European Russia, Poland
and Finland, who recently have been
holding secret meetings. The manifesto leaves the individual parties
free to pursue their own methods of
opposition to the government, but
pledges the union of all the elements
of the opposition to secure "the abo
lition ol autocracy and the - substitution ol a democratic system based
upon universal suffrage, the reversion
of thc measure destructive of tlic constitution of Finland and the suppression of the violence of the central
government against tlic various sections or tiie Empire." Tlic manifesto closes as follows: "Tlie parties represented herewith unite their
oilers lo the purpose ul hastening
the inevitable fall of absolutism."
M. Jaures says that tlle uniting of
the opposition parties is part of the
movement for the adoption of a dem-
o.rralic Institution in Russia which
he declares will be the most important historical achievement since Hie
French revolution.

SCIIOOL VACATIONS.
In the annual report ol thc Superintendent ol Education for this province an intimation is given that the
aato of reopening tlic schools after
the summer vacation will be changed.
Mr. Robinson says that lor some
years he bus lelt that the summer
holidays, beginning as they do in tho
lasl, week in June and extending to
Hie second week in August, are held
at an inopportune time, as the reopening of tlic schools takes place in
Hie middle of tbe hottest month of
the year. Hie adds Unit the dales ol
opening and closing of the summer
vacation arc now under consideration
and an announcement will lie made
belore tlic close of Hie present school
year. Any person who has had lo do
Witli lire schools ol the province,
knows this subject'is one thnt is Icing
dealt witli none too soon. Wc tlo not
know lhc reason originally tor fixing
Hie dntcs of the summer vacation as
al present; hut year after year the
same question arises of llie necessity tor prolonging lhc vacation nt
leust a week, till the weather becomes somewhat .ooler. In the east the
holidays us a rule lasl through tho
two months of July anil August, anil
while the .earlier here is by no
means so warm as in the oilier provinces curing tlic summer months,
the hottest portion frequently begins
just when Hie schools reopen. Then
there is a hurried meeting ot tiie
trustees and permission has to he ob-
tnincd Irom the department lor a lew
more days grace for Hie children. A
couple of weeks longer vacation than
thai at present iu vogue will not do
the children any harm; whereas suddenly plunging the youngsters into a
sultry school room, where they find
, it difficult to keep awake or take interest iu their studies, is liable lei
elclract Iroin the good cffeels of the
healthy open air life that most ol
llii-m lead during the holidays. The
health ol a boy or girl is' as necessary as an educational expuipineiit and
therefore Iras to lie regarded with as
much enre as lire schooling.

,;,'•' hoard shipments.  The trade at large
in Cent lor Cent lor November,    is Ucjjevcs tllat thc West Virginia trade
put at the great figure ol 3511,421,00.11 campaign has unnecessarily reduced
net ton's lor tlle yenr 11)03, Now inasmuch as the days "active" are but,
an average of 210 in thc year, it can
readily be seen lir.,1 tiie industry is
justly to be credited with tlie title
given it—the most .vontlcrliil in tlie
world. Ot the tonnage stated there
were some. 72,000,0011 tons anthracite
anil that leaves us with the grand
figure of a million tens a day (lor
tlic days worked) ol that great steam
producing fuel—bituminous coal. The
lact that this fuel is so largely used
at. home as an indication ol our in
dustrial condition 'tor ICngland,
with {an output of a million tons less
than that ol tllc United States, e>r
.ports over sixty million tons to all
part's of the world.
A million tons a day means live
trains ol fifty cars each lor every
day in the year; the cars carrying
forty tons each.
The mining and shipping ol a million tons ol bituminous coal a day
shows a wonderful activity in business ol all kinds, Irom that ol railroading to thc driving ol spindles in
tlic cotton lactories ol New Ungland
In view of, this, antl the growth that
one may safely,say is hound to come
with the years as they pass by, is
there not a vast deal ol truth in
what has been said of the value -of
coal land ownership? Tlie value of
such property is most highly esteem-j
ctl abroad, and it is growing here as
knowledge spreads of the great tonnage antl consequently growing demand lor fuel.
Tu speak ol the lunilamcntal   importance of fuel to the nation's well-
being    may    be to travel over old
ground,:   but repeated references to
this vital theme are not out of place.
Columns arc written about tlic prosperity of tlie now South through the
prtxrccils ot its cotton crop, a   commanding figure until you conic, to calculate the market value of 350,000,-
000 or more tons oi coal mined   ami
sold even in an "oil" year. Iron    is
called tlic "barometer ui trade,-' ami
an output til 18,000,000 tons ol pig-
iron calls forth more comments than
twenty     timet, that output ol fuel.
Iron and steel are often quoted by tlio
men and papers of Wall street     because doubtless, the statintics ol these
trades are more easily comprehended
by tlic majority ol people there than
tlie statistics of coal.   Perhaps    the
fact that the latter product is  com-
ititui anil familiar—a direct product oi
tlie earth—has.something to tiu  with
it;   yet, more men arc employed,   in
the coal, business ami more people tle-
(nen   tl directly iipun it tor support
than iu thc iron ant) steel industries
both together.
The cunt tonnage ot Illinois,     thc
i second state in the list ol coal production,     exceeds the whole IrcigHit
business of .■ tlic New York Central
Railway, ami lllc    state of Pennsylvania docs five times as much as Illinois.   Tate live, years as a unit in'
the production ,oI coal, instead ol one
year, anil the advance ot each period
over that  of its iiniueiliitte predecessor ami all  that bate gone lielore is
marked.    The invariable tendency   is
to go ahead, even if sonic one year
Is not up to .expectations.   This    is
particularly the case wilh the quantity ol.cnal mined; and when it comes to price, both bard and Bolt coal
are sold at better advantage    now
than five years ago.  The general average,    which determines thc worlli
antl tendency ol all things, is lavor-
iible, and progress is the mark     ol
trade throughout, today the production of hard coal is beyond the figures which experts of only ten years
ago sali! would he possible with all
she anthracite mines working every
ilny In,the yenr ami the statistics ol
bituminous arc likewise beyond    the
reasonable expectations   oi oven five
years ago.
((rent interest is being taken in Vie
cl-orl being made among West Virgin-
la    operators to agree upon an in-
its 'own earnings and unnecessarily
punished its own competitors In the
amazing low prices askcil lor its products; prices which oractically wiped
out competition so lar as Pennsylvania protlucers were concerned. West
Virginia operators, have, however,
clearly demonstrated their advantages over any other bituminous section
in the matter ol low cost of production.
LOOKING AHEAD.
A Clyde pleasure steamer called iu
at the pier oi ' small fishing hamlet
on the West Coast. Onc ol the natives of the plan-\ crossed thc gangway, approached the purser, rand said
"Are ye the pursur?" The latter admitted that he was. "Hoo muckle.j'
proceeded his interrogator, "wail it
cost tao tak' a corpse to Glcsca?"
The ourscr stated the amount and
added that he would require to make
haste if he desired to go by the alternoon boat. "Ah, wcel," replied
Ihc native, "it's thc wile ye see, an'
she's no dcid yet; but maybe she'll
be ready for tae-morrow's boat."
BY RIGHT OF THE WillK.
Just opposite Glcnquoich Lodge,
which King Edward has been.visiting
is a little inland in Loch Quoich that
some titty years ago sheltered one of
thc best known characters in tlic
Higlilaads. This was a Glengarry
man named MacPhee. Early in life
he joined the army, but (discipline did
not suit him, and he deserted. He
hid in thc Highlands lor a time, but
was captured, contriving to escape,
however, liy jumping overboard from
the steamer that was taking him
south. Ultimately he made itis abode
on what is now known as Eiloaii
Mhic Mice, on Loch Quoich, One ot
his earliest escapades was to steal
his wife in the most, approved ancient fashion, nnd then he began to
steal sheep. The one offence was {condoned; the orbcr was not, and, being
caught red bun ■led, he was imprisoned. He din! in gaol. During his rest
denee on the'island MacPhee.assumed
the role ol a seer. He did a business
in charms, and ailing cattle were
brought to him to be cured. His arrogant hearing is illustrated by his
first visit to Mr. Edward Ellicc, alter that gentleman hail bought Glen-
iioich. Asked by what right heliv-
■■il on the island, MacPhee drew his
ir:!'!., and, plunging fit into thc table,
leclarotP "Ity this right I have kept
it, r.iiil by this right I will.hold it."
U. S. COAST DEFENCES.
Washington, D. C, Nov. 80.—Brigadier Gen. Story, chic! ot artillery
United States Army, in his' annual
report Nto Ren. Chaflec, the chief ot
staff, dwells upon what he, regards
as the most urgent demands for tho
coast defences. He says\lhat the best
am! iijost economical use of the entire arament ol the coast rqtfuires
one complete relief to man every element of defence. He says that if torpedoes are co-opcratcd witli a proper
armament as at Purf Arthur anil
Vladivostock. it is not probable that
any enemy however enterprising,
would attempt to force their line of
defence.

was at the manse the other
day," said thc prccenter to an old
crony, "an' the minister and me got

says he, 'I'm very sorry to tell you
that I must advise you to give up

WIRES IN WAR.
The electric wire has an important
part in the present war.  Onecorrcs-
pontlcnl says that during the most
ceent operations tlie Japanese com.
niaiider-ln-cliict "was i communicating
over thc wires witli all tho. generals
along the. twenty-five miles of lighting line, as well as wilh the besiegers     at Port Arthur, and his government atTokin."    -The system under
which tiie general was tree to do his
work without distractions had, after
all, agood many advantages. General Buller, while in the C'ape,: protested against the irritating recurrence
of little rcil-tapish queries whicli armed from Pall Mali, by every post.
Hut the telegraph and telephone must
pile on tlie agony unduly.' Kuropatkin seems to suffer Irom the'wire also, though if it he true that he   reluctantly advanced under strong' pressure Irom St. Petersburg, he weakly
gave, way to an influence which other
generals have wisely resisted.   When
thc unsohlicrly Napoleon HI. took it'
ou himself to control, Irom hit. pal- I
aee. in Paris, the movements ol   the |
French army in the Crimea, he   received a sharp call to order Irom the
inai shall commanding at. the tront.
"I must remind your Majesty,"wrote
the niarsball, "that while the troops
arc.not disloyal, they will not take
directions   [mm   a civilian."    Bis.
match's interference became so    unbearable that ho and the military
leader, .Von _lolt_c, ceased to lie oven
on speaking terms.   Ol course,    the
first Pitt directed some ol England's
must famous engagements Irom   his
own easy chair, and generals merely
went forth to execute in Canada and
on the Continent tho elaborate  battles which he planned out in the   seclusion ol his study.   Hut then     all
ministers are not Pitts.
THE LOWER OKANAGAN.
The lowering ol the level ol Oknii-
iigarr lake is a project which will probably be carried out during the summer ol l!l0f> or thc succeeding season.
Engineers havo, been taking levels end
conducting other necessary preliminary work, anil have reported lhat
the scheme is a feasible one, and can
be accomplished at a reasonable cost.
One of the main reasons-of this
improvement is to relieve tlie town
of Kclowna, which is flooded' by high
water every spring. The town is located on a rather low portion ol land
and the spring Ircshets raise, the level ol the lake to such a degree that
considerable inconvenience and damage is done. To overcome this, the
river between Okanagan and Dog
Lakes will be dredged, antl thc level
will be lowered lour lect or more.
This river is only live or six miles
long, and if made more, navigable,
will allow steamers to pass through
to Dog Lake and give water transportation to a portion ol the district which will soon be settled.

THE PEOPLE,
arc great bargain hunters. We, as a
whole, tlo most ol our shopping at
stores where bargains are advertised.
While we arc patronizing the bargain sale, other things in the storo
attract us.
We go to the store to get a 50c
bargain. Before leaving wc buy
many dollars' worth of goods.
Advertised bargains are great business winners if advertised in the
right pnpors.
A good advertisement must go to
the people In an hniicst, straight-forward way and talk business from
start to finish. It should lie plainly
worded just as ynu wtiuld talk to a
customer in your store.
