ANOTHER HITCH.
St. 'Petersburg,  Nov. 16.-A   difference has developed between Great
Britain audjlussin over the laripgua)\
ol the article in the North Sea convention relative to the question    ol
responsibility.    At tile foreign office
it is said that Russia does not' desire lo in any way recede Irnm    the
basis of the agreement', but site pro-
n poses a modification of the language
i.ubniittod in tlio English text.   The
Admiralty it Is understood contended all along that the international
commission     should eonlhrc its    Inquiry    to the • establishment ol tbe
question whether torpedo boats wore
oil the Doeser Hank and whether in
any event   tlie Russian .Ships'    wure
justilied in firing. I
liy the government to conic West.
Tlic intention is to bring out another party iu 111(15 to giue incite demonstrations to tlie Mirers on the
Atlantic coast, and these will come
to Vancouver.
Mr. Cowle came over Irom Nanaimo on Si, .inlay and left for tlic
East on Sunday afternoon. After bin
trip of inspection, he was quite confident tbat the Nanaimo herring is
fully up to tlic standard of the
Scotch lisli, and that il is capable
of being cured in a* variety' of ways
so as to make delicious and valuable
food. The llsh l*re were a little
smaller than on the Atlantic coast,
bul this was in their lavor, as when
loo large they become coarse Owing
to the run being just started, he did
not see thc her(ing lo the best advantage. Comparing the methods in
vogue in Ilritish Columbia with thoso
on the Eastern coast, Mr. Cowic
says thc barrel used for packing is
much superior bcrc, Being perfectly i

son of How to Gather Golden Gain
Che Poo, Nov. 1(1.—(Noon.)—It is
rumored that tlie Russian torpedo
boat destroyer Rastoropny, .which
has put Into this port, brought a
despatch from Gen. Stocssel asking
the St. Petersburg authorities for
instructions as to whether he would
continue holding out, awaiting relief, or make immediate arrangements with the Japs for surrender
upon tlie most advantageous terms
possible. This rumor cannot be confirmed, but it is obvious that only
despatches of the highest importance
would impel Gen. Stocssel lo risk
the loss ol a warship by sending her
out upon such a mission, in lace of
the rigid blockade maintained oil
Port Arthur by the Japanese fleet.
The captain ol the Rastoropny has
notified thc Chinese authorities tiial.
be will disarm. It is beliuvcd thai
this decision was arrived at after
communicating with St. Petcrs|ipirg.
There is reason to believe tbat .Ia|H
anese cruisers have Llrnr. watching Hilio
port although a steamer which has
I just arrived, saw no Japanese war
vessels. The Rastoropny brought a
number ol copies ol tllc Nova Krai,
a Port Arthur newspaper. In one of
tllc iss.as it is stated that while a
(Associated Press Despatches.)
Jarpancse destroyer was laying mines
on Nov. 11, she was surprised Wy thc
. battleship Retvis-an and sunk!
LATER.
[ Che Foo, Nov, lfl.—The Russians
have blown up the torpedo boat destroyer Rastoropny. Thc torpedo
boat destroyer Rastoropny was ol
210 tons displacement, was 200 leet
long, ami had a speed ol 20 knots.
Her armament consisted ot one 12-
poundcr and three .(-pounders, and
she had two torpedo lubes. She was
launched in 1001.
WORD FROM PORT ARTHUR.
St. Petersburg, Nov. 10— Despatches from Gen. Stocssel, commander ot the Russian military forces at
Port Arthur, and Rear. Admiral Wi-
rcn, in command of the Port Arthur squadron, brought by the Russian torpedo boat destroyer Rastoropny to Che Foo, have reached tlie
Emperor, but have nol yet been made
public. The great importance ol tbe
infiirint.t,ioii is apparent frnm the|_ct
that tbe torpedo lioat destroyer was
deliS^ra'lely sacrificed in order tto
gel the communications from the beleaguered garrison. The only word
which lias reached llie Admiralty, ia
a telegram  from the captain ol the
Haistoropny, announcing his armi/val
with official despatches. An attempt
of the Japanese to repeat tto Rycs-
pitelni incident,  in these waters   lis
confirmed.   The captain reports that
the Rastoropny will be disarmed and1
hauled out to prevent the .possibility
ot the Japanese entering the harbor
and lorcibly towing her out.
|   Tto commander ot the Rastoropny
'in an interview of his adventureous
voyage, said: "We lelt Port Arthur
at midnight in a blinding snowstorm.
I Tlie boat was navigated through all
the dangers of floating mines without    a mishap. On reaching tlie open
sea, we saw a Japanese cruiser and
'some torpedo boats in the distance,
but    we    were    steaming   rapidly
through the storm with lights    extinguished  and  passed  then unnitic-
ed.      We reached  Che Foo without
any mishap of any kind,"
|   The    commander   of   the torpedo
boat destroyer was optimistic   with
reference to Port Arthur.    He    declared all the fort, remained in Russian hands and that the garrison was
confident and in good spirits.      llie
former     Russian    governor ol Port
Dalny, M. Sakharoff, died recently at
Porl' Arthur of enteric fever.

THANKSGIVING."'
Tomorrow Canadians .will observe
as a day of thanksgiving for the
blessings, that the, country .lias, received during the past year. While
liiorc iiniiieilirilcly, perhaps, wc have
taken the custom from .thai followed in the. linked States, it goes
mucb further back than Hint. It is
applying to the cotihtYy3 aMyti whole
tiie old harvest hdiiic festival which
in some form or other lias conn
do.wn-.firom. ancient .limes,, a time of
rejoicing ity the husbandman when
the crops were all gathered and safely housed away before the winter
time came. The custom is a pleasant
one and in what country today have
the people boiler cause lo be pleased? Where can to found less poverty
and wealth more evenly distributed'
than through tlie length and .breadth
of our prosperous land? Ot|icr countries may have individually more
millionaires possessed of immense
riches, but they have more abject
poverty as well, tiie two extremes.
Today it, is admitted. lhat nowhere
are there greater opportunities open
for successful progress than in Can-
aria and the Dominion stands'higher
iii the eyes of all than it over did
before, tmliyidual cases., of, failure and;
misfortune-there must, bis all cannot
succeed; hut at any rale even these
have something to to thankful for
today; the least fortlunato can for
lire want oi a Ijcttcr cause for ob-t
serving the holiday thank heaven
that things' are no worse.

STARS OF
THETOkSK
<f_S     . A ■
Majjor Dclmnr is the bright   star
ol the trotting world for 1904, especially because he lowered the colors ol Lou Dillon.
Second only to Major Delniar
stands. Sweet Marie,- the 'wonderful
California mare, who is without a
doubt the greatest racing trotter the
world has known, and before, another
ycair ban passed she is more than
likely to he hailed as thc champion,
in this connection it is interesting
to recall that this, brilliant performer was called a quitter last year,
and with reason, lor she gave evidence time and again ol cither taint
hcartcdness or lack ol endurance that
has made her record ot this season
the more remarkable* After her
wonderful display of sameness at the
Lexington track, when aire outgamed
thc other entries1, including' Tiverton
the horse that beat her in the Charter Oak, she was stamped as being
not only a speed wonder, but a marc
possessed af thc stoutest of hearts,
as well as a constitution ol iron.
But the season that gave Sweet
Marie pre-eminence as n racing machine marked the downfall of the sen
national Lou Dillon, unquestionably
the fastest of trotters, Last year,
Lou Dillon was queen and Sweet I
Marie a fast marc, but a qfuitter.
This year Sweet Marie fought her
way to thc top through her game
ncss, while Lou Dillon displayed either a faint hcartcdness or a weakness of constitution that has related
her to thc class of horses that have
great speed hut nothing else. In discussing her race with Major Delniar
for the gold cup at thc Memphis
meeting the Horseman says:
"lyiiy was It that the little marc,
which had so decidedly defeated (Major Delniar a year ago, was unable
to even force him to trot a couple ot.
miles, to wagon in record time? Thi
only spot for an excuse is found bad
in July when the mare did not. di
herself justice at Detroit and was n
lew day- later taken dangerously ill
with fever at Cleveland. She recov
ereil quickly from this sickness aril',
was brought along during the bat
ancc ofthe season with tlie one idcr
iu view of defeat ing Major Dclma'
In thc race for thc gold cup. To tfiii
end, all her exhibition dates wen
cancelled.
"Lou Dillon was prepared lor thi
race with tlie greatest care am
skill. Millard Sanders and Charles,
better known as 'Doc' Tanner hut'
a record ol the trial miles of feed
ing, etc., which was so successful
lust Vycnr in bringing the mare ti
tlic track in record breaking condi
Irion. The preparatory work for the
cup race was based on this, and
there is no question but she was pre
pared with tlie greatest of care am!
skill by two ol the. best conditioner!
in the country. A couple ol weeks
previous to tllc race tllc marc war
tried out, trotting a mile in 2.01 J,
and repeating in 2.03. She came
out ol these workouts in as good
condition as thc most critical could
wish. On Eriday previous to the
race she Trotted a mile in 2.115 anil
asked II she had her extreme speed
she stepped an eighth in l.'U seconds. On the day previous to the
race site impressed tho visitors to
the track as having all her 'hawklike sliced,' as one, of them expressed
it. To better understand her con
tion the work given her since the
race should be considered. On Thursday she was worked a mile in 2.05,
and on Saturday one in 2.01}, with
the tractions in 30_, 1.01} and 1.31 J
llctore tlic race and alter, Lou Dil-
loh liad all her speed. Not one bit
of fault could he found with her preparation. Was it racing luck that
she was apparently not herself in
the second race ot her life? Or was
if possible she (lid not like being
beaten lo the half in 1.03}?
"IMaj. Delniar is not new to tho
racing game. He won honors as
the thrce-ycmr-olil in competition
with others of his age. Later he
raced against the best in his class,
and won and was heal en as fortune
tavwed. A year ago, the mare
started hi the llrst race ol her lite,
caught MaJ- Dclmar when he was
acknowledged oh ami with the advantage nf thc pole beat blm decisively. On the day ol the race Maj.
Dclmar was a champion in appearance, trained to, the very second,
had the fortune to draw, thc favored
position next the pole aim rclused tn
even be headed after the word was
given."
Granting that Lpu Dillon may not
have liecn herself that day, it must
be admitted that the work ol the
marc just belore and immediately
after that race lent color to the belief that It was Maj. Delniar and
not sickness that beat her.
FINDING OF
JjBOfSR <_rOLD
ir-
News was received at Krugors-
dorl recently, .says South Africa, of
'tr„6 discovery in the bushvcld beyond
Louis Tricltardt's Drift and thc Spe-
lonken of the famous buried treasure
.which was secretly removed Irom the
Pretoria mint just belore Lord Roberts' forces entered the.capital, and
which formed the romantic issue in
the tragedy culminating in the " execution of ex-Policeman. Swart?.. Thc
treasure, which consists of bar gold
and coin, approximately amounts to
00,000*" dunt-e.; _-d Is 'valued it a
quarter ol % million sterling..
The story of its burial and   discovery is sensational in .extreme. It
is n history ol- blood and crime   no
[ewer than six men having lost their
lives in the burial .and the subsequent search lor the gold, which   has
Iastcdr since the declaration or peace.
Ol th. orhjiifal pa'rty which, was despatched to hide the gold,' not a single soul isaliyc today.    It appears
that some twenty-tour hours belore
ihc. occupation ol Dretoria hy the imperial forces, orders wore'received at
the   mint    from the late President
Kruger   and   Mr. Hcitz,   .tlie then
State Secretary,    to remove     the
greater portion of the  ' 'gold ■ which
was extracted     front the Robinson,
Roso Deep, Ferrcira and other mines
lo thc secluded spot in tlie bushvcld
jcyond Pietersburg.
It was known    by the old Trans-
,-aal    ollicials    that a wagon with
rout mules,    accompanied    by    six
rpccinlly selected burghers, left Pretoria at midnight with the gold and
.anquished into the veld.   The    crx-
.loliceman    Swart-     and  the   man
whom he murdered, and for which he
riiffcreil the last penalty, werc among
the. party.    After burying the  gold
four of the Wardens ot the treasure.
rejoined the commandoes; hut a luck-
ess   fate    seemed'to have pursued
Ji'em, and they werc all killed utter
*ard.    For some time the    search
ippcarcd to have died out, and    it
.vas   only through second or third
land knowledge   that a Krugcrdorp
ryndicnte ol six, including ex-Clencr-
■Is    Kemp and   Cellicrs, cx^'olicc-
iieutcnaiit Van  Kyi,  W.  D. . .Smith,
.mil the _.'."_• Kemp, a cousin of thc
•x-gcucraMouiid out that there   was
state treasure buried in tbe    Inish-
,-eld.
The party made repeated exploring,
rips into tlie Low Country, in   the
had season    'to escape observation,
mil most o.f theni were stricken with
malarial fever.    Each member   took
a inherent direction with tlic   under-
Handing that il any lound thc treasure it was to be split, uo into ciijual
iroportions.       Only   one   iiiciii|ri'r,
however, found the burial place, and
iic was cx-Qcneral Cellicrs. The site
was between two peculiar trees.    A
red flag as a sign, was stuck up on
one of the trees, with a carcass of a
mule iu between.    0/ c of the ribs of
the mule being imbedded in the  soil
where the gold was buried.   On   returning to  PlctorsbUrg,'  cx-Ucncral
Cellicrs was prostrated witli malarial fever in the hospital, and while
lie was hovering    between..life    and
death he divulged part ol his secret
to oilier members of thc syndicate,
who, however,, alter repeated search
ings, tailed to find the spot.     Some
differences ot opinion followed,    and
ultimately thc syndicate broke   up,
deciding to severally go their   own
way.
The Government authorities, getting wind og the whole affair, approached an ex-state official residing
at Krugersdorp, and he supplied
them with certain information and
apian ol.tho supposed site. While
the (loverninent were acting on this
information, Mr. S. J.' Kemp, cousin of the ex-general, had revived u
systematic search, with the result
ol the discovery.

DEEP DOWN TO D.
Musicians say that it is at least a
quarter ol a century since a woman
sang the lower D, a note, which
Mine. Albuiii is credited with reaching, hut there is n young Australian
now in London wlio can accomplish
this rare vocal feat.
Miss Violet Elliott is a tall ami
charming brunette, who has only
been a lew months in this country.
Apart Irom the wonderful low notes
ol her register, her voice lias a peculiar reasonancc which is usually
associated with jagooil baritone,
though this by no moans destroys its
essential femininity.
Miss Elliott finds herself In a difficulty because there are no snugs
written lor the tcmalo voice which
Igive her an opportunity ol using her
lowqit notes. She Is, therefore, obliged to sing men's songs. "In Cellar Coo)," which provfs such n ^tumbling block to many amateurs, has
no terrors lor her, tor It only demands alow O, and she has nearly
halt an octave in reserve when she
has sung that not*.' " • '
'The three ballads that I usually
employ tor my low notes'," she said,
'this weak, are   'Out on .the Deep,'
PATROL THE YUKON.
The Northwest Mounted Police are
preparing the most extensive system
of patrols for Yukon territory the
coming winter that ever have been
maintained in the North. A patrol
will lie made Irom Dawson to Fort
rVlcPlicrson, at the uhuiI.Ii of the Mc
Kcnzle river by way ol a pass in
the Rocky mountains west ot Daw-
sou, and patrols maintained regularly all winter between Dawson and
Duncan, Dawson and White Horse,
Dawson and Forty-Mile, Forty-Mile
and Glacier Creek, White Horse and
ihe Alsek and other places.
Dctwccn Dawson and White Horse
a patrol will lie maintained in such
fashion that thc entire length ol the
trail will he covered one day each
weekr The rounds will he niado with
sleighs drawn by horses, and the police will maintain a light express
and mail service for their own convenience as well as lo cover the
country for thc protection of thebco-
ple. along the route.
On the Yukon river a patrol will
lie given each week between Dawson
and Selkirk. Above Selkirk to iMin-
tb the overland trail patrol will
cover the river, nnd lieyong Minfo
the trail runs so close to the Yukon
that it is not considered necejuary
to have a winter patrol an the Yukon.
Hctwcen Selkirk and Dawson the
same posts will be open along the
river In winter as were maintained
in summer, aud on the winter trail,
posts will lie maintained at Grand
Forks, Wounded Moose, Stewart
Crossing, Grand Valley, Selkirk and
Minto.
Tho patrol lor Fort McPlicrson will
leave Dnwson in January, make a
trip to McPlicrson and return lielore
ipring. Only one round trip will be
made during the winter. Tim patrol will cover perhaps 500 miles,
actual traveling distance. An Indian guide will accompany thc police. Two or three police will he
detailed Irom Dawson on the trip.
The greatest difficulty on the trip
will be carrying sufficient feed fur
flic dogs.

RUGBY IN LONDON.
"A great deal has been written
lately on the decline of Rugby in
London, Eng., and in some districts
it is unfortunately only too true.'
Take London for instance, says an
English writer: A few years ago,
lila-~-licat.li and'Richmond could always command their two, three and
lour thousand spectators at a match
whereas now there arc only hundreds, and 'to many minds this falling off is entirely due to the uninteresting game played by the London
teams. One must go with the tjnics,
and if they would only try and develop the four three-quarter system,
which was inlended to oprn out thc
game more, and to do away with the
old stereotyped forward game, it is
rcrtain interest in the game would
revive again, it is all very well
for Rugby teams to say they can
:et on without "gates," but look
at the effect on the game! What is
nore disheartening to tbe playcgs
than to turn out before empty
bem lies and with no encouraging
cheers from supporters? There is no
iloir-t that the Londoner is at a
^reut disadvantage as regards training and getting himself lit,, hut, sure-
if a man is keen on the game anil
lal.es any interest in his club there
ire heaps of gymnasiums where this
can be done with very little trouble,
f thc Rugby Union would make a
ule that all matches should last,
rightly minutes instead of seventy,
then men would get lit, for their own
sakes. A league has been suggested,
but It Is doubt Ini il it would improve matches. The games as
friendliest are t;|itc bard enough
at present, and a system of points
might bring a lot. of rough play iutt:
the game, which r.liould certainly be
avoided. The only benefit would lie
punctuality, and there again tbe Lou
don clubs arc the worst offenders,
What is wanted in Rugby Football
is to have the ball continually handled among llie backs, and not as is
chiefly the case now, lost, half the
game in amass of forwards."

Monday was very stormy at    Victoria according to the Times which
says:
There are not many small craft
moving on the waterfront today, indeed there arc few that could, go out
farther than the harbor, for in the
straits beyond white caps arc toss,

have been seen this season are making navigation for even the larger
coasting vessels none too pleasant.
The siiualls which have been .prevailing siiu e early yesterday afternoon
are fin- heaviest which have come
this fall. Yesterday evening the
wind blew from the southeast, but
vetted around fo the southwest this
morning, and blew strong. The centre ol tbe storm this morning war
off Vancouver Island, but llie winds
were generally all along the coast,
from the Columbia river north. The
greatest velocity recorded at the
meteorological ollice was between 3

AMONG CANNIBALS.
It has been practically decided to
organize a British expedition consisting of a force of from 1,540 hi
2,000 men, to march through the
country of the Niam Niam savages,
a tribe of Central African cannibals
whose deeds figured so prominently
travellers' books ol a generation
argii. The country, which situated
some 800 miles southeast ol Khartoum, is within the sphere _f British
influence, although the natives themselves at present render nn allegiance
except to their own Sultitn. At
present the entire trade ol the country, which is very rich in ivory, is
in the hands of Belgian traders who
give thc natives firearms. In exchange
for tusks. It is indeed stated that
only one Englishman, a Dr. Stewart
ever penetrated the land, and that
he was mdrdered. If they arc so
disposed tlic Niam Niams can take
lhc field with 20,000 men armed with
Ililgian rides and with native bows
and arrows. Although they are heathens aud cannibals they are of a
.listiiicfly higher order ol intellect
than the tribes ol the Upper Nile
Valley.
