(Associated Press Despatches.)
New York, Dec. 21.—A Pittsburg
despatch to the Tribune says: It is
feared that within thc next ten days
almost overy industry in western
Pennsylvania- nnd eastern Ohio •will
have to close down. The "drought is
thc worst in the history of this part
ol the country. The weather bureau
cannot see any relief in sight. There
is only half a loot of snow on the
level. If this melted it would only
be equal to six-tenths of an inch,of
rain and it will take at least one
inch of rain besides tb 'he pi benefit.
Thc Edgar Thompson Steel plant has
ordered a large part of the plant to
close down. The lurnaccs have no
coke and the boilers arc all corroded
with thc sttlpher Irom thc coal mines.  In the country districts especial
ly in the-mountains, nothing but
melted snow can be hail for watering stock or for house use. Firemen
have hung up their hose in scores ol
towns.
Mines have closed alter using sulphur water until, corrosion had cat-
m boilers and pipes to a.shcli. This
is working a hardship, as luel cannot' be had'. Thc south is suffering
for coal. Streams that have never
been tlry within the memory of man
ha-:e . not been covered with water
tor; a month, and pools are frozen
irojitl. Workmen at thc National TiflsS
Works, thc Buqiicsnc and Home
strrad mills say conditions at those
places cannot be-explained and orders r . to - close down ate expected
hourly.

team has not all been chosen yet and
while the captain Is darkly mystcr-

that while one oi the most susceptible ol the younger members was
calling on a lady Iricnd tiro-oilier
day he was persuaded to Indulge in
cake and pie that have been strictly
tabooed from tlie training tabic. Tho
captain is therefore carefully watching to sec it any 'ill effects follow before settling whether the backslider-
shall give place to some one else.
Thc team each day goes through a
course ol physical culture, on lines
laid down by the Ladies' Home j

Mr. A« J, McMurtrie   Declines to  Have
Water in His Cellar Even as a
Free Gift
He Asks Fer Mandamus to Compel Building cf Proper Drain on Gatacre
Street
Now that Lailysniilli is a city she
is gradually receiving Ihe attention
rrnil privileges that are,due her. The
latest in this line is a writ issued on
I kliali of Mr Ay J. McMurtrie against
the corporation for damages because
of the water that runs gaily down
Gatacre street from the celebrated
sausage machine motor operated by-
Messrs. Panncl & Plaskett over which
the civic authorities and the enter- [
jrrising firm have had so much plea-.
sant conversation antlcorrespoii'lencc.
Mr. McMurtrie complains that be
does not want the water in his- ecl-,
lar and he holds the city liable lor
the damage because they have    not
provided a proper drain on the
street. He is also applying for a
mandamus to compel the ..corporation
to put in a drain on the street, so
that the water may stay outside his
hotel. It does not pay lor room
rent and he needs all the hotel lor
the use of his guests and declines to
allow the city to use his cellar as
a reservoir. This is the first time
a writ has been issued against the
city since its incorporation and naturally it makes Ladysmith leel
rliite grown up to have a real lull-
sized law suit on its hands. Mr.
Russell Simpson is acting for Mr.
McMurtrie.  '

ST. MAJELLAN A SCULLION.
Blessed Gerard Majcllan,  who with
Messandre Satrli, was eanoni/.cil   by
Pope Pius N. last Sunday morning,
St.  Peter's at Rome,  was in life
only an    ordinary Italian domestic.
His work was tliat of a scullion    or
dishwasher, but in that capacity he
was noted lor his obedience and purity ol heart.    He lived during    thc
eighteenth   century.     To be eaiirin-
ized   as   a saint is not the  reward
ol cither service or intellectual ability, nor need one havo been a priest!
lo  receive    this     third and highest;
iurii.,r in the power of Ihe   churt'h. I
Any ordinary brother who has lived j
a life ol conspicuous purity and    de-1
volion may     come in line for
honor of canonization.    There
two degrees that each candidate
canonization must havo received
fore the    canonization proper,
must have been     declared venerable, '
which first     degree is never granted
until a man has been -dead fifty years
run!  which  lakes a periorl  of    many [
more years'    examination into    his I
private life before the granting    of
thc honor    is   finally consummated, r
Then comes the beatification.    Ma-1
jellan was beatified in  18!) t.      The
last step  is  the canonization    proper, which is virtually nn expression
by the church of its belief that   the
deceased  is one ol the saints in heaven.    While in    iate years very few
notables     have been canonized, yet
since  llie organization of the Catholic church there    have been   some-'
like twenty millions who have    received this honor.    All the martyrs
have received  thc blessed     degree of
canonization by virtue of thcir mar-
tyrdnm. thc church holding (bat   no
man can tlo more than lay down  bis.

BRITISH SHIPS
ARE CAPTURED
Nagasaki, Dee. 21.—The British
steamer Nigrctia, which>wasseized
by the Japanese cruiser Tsushima off
Ulsan yesterday, lias arrived at Sa-
selbo for trial before the prize court.
Thc Nigretia was proceeding to
Vladivostock with a cargo of kerosene. It is said the crew refused to
leave Shanghai, but werc compelled
to do so by the consul, who held
that her cargo was not eontralirani'l,
owing to the fact that the port of
Vladivostock is not being lilocailcu
by the Japanese.
Tg|rio, Dec. 21.—The examination ol
the cargo, passengers and crew oi
the British steamer Nigretia is progressing. Beomiggly it is uutlcrtini-
rncil if paroled Russian officers arc
on board the Nigrctia. Thc Japanese are carefully investigating this
side o the case, becadsc of thc
question of the ability of tlie Chinese
ollicials to properly comluct the internment of Russians who seek refuge at ports iu China which is considered to be vitally important.
Tlie Britisli steamer King Arthur
was captured while attempting to
leave Port Arthur yesterday by the
Japanese guardsbip Asgira. It is
understood that the Kiug Arthur
took supplies to Port Arthur. She
had on board Russian naval officers
who were attempting to join the
Russian second Pacific squadron. Thc
King Arthur was taken lo Sasebo for
trial.

DEMAND FOR
LUMBER DUTY
THE BALLOON
IN WARFARE
Mukden, Dec. 21.—Correspondence
of the Associated Press.—Mr. Nandt,
who has been in charge o! the balloon corps in thc tar east during the
war, has given some interesting conclusions reached in practical work
in the field. He still thinks the
balloon has a distinct future in warfare and there have been a number ol
occasions when the balloons did valuable work in scouting, but on the
whole he says that the weather in
Manchuria is too damp for balloons
to be at their best. It has proved
exceedingly difficult to get photo-'
graphs of any value. When the bal-
oon was low, the vibration owing
lo air currents was excessive. Light
was seldom good and frequently the
balloon was too high for pictures to
be of any use. In the attack on
Putiloff (Lone Tree Hill), he says
there was presented a very interesting panorama ol the battlefield, but
it was often impossible to tell with
certainty which were Russian lines
and which were Japanese. The best
work of thc balloon corps was done
during the retreat from Liao Y'ang,
when he says for scouting purposes,
they were really valuable, olten almost indispensable.

MEXICAN TRADE,.
A lew .days ago in discussing the
opportunities 'of the .newly subsidized steamship liife"- between Saiuula
and Mexico, we mentioned as 'an example of the trade that might be
done, the growth of business that
has been worked up between Mexico
and the Unitetl States. This is fur.
titer borne-out -by -the figures - just
published by the Un ted Slates -department of commerce which show
that the exports Irom thc States
to Mexico rose from "ffiirteen'
million dollars in. 181)0 to torty-six
millions in the present year, and Imports rose Iron; twenty-three millions
to forty-lour millions. In fact the
United States supplied fifty-nine' per
cent, of Mexico's imports this year,
and took seventy-six pef cent. : of
her exports, liad the United States
been content to allow tlle European
countries to control this trade as in
the early days; she never wottM-havc-
secured -such a large uhare lor herself. Maify of ITic; .things that Mexico exports are purchased today by
Canadians .through, the United .States
middle man; and there is no reason
why this should    be the case when
we shall have a direct  line ot    our
-     '"    '   '    -   '  ^ -i
own.    'I'll? prjncin.a,!  articles .among
the exports to, the States arc fibres,
such as sisal grass used lor making
ropes, coflcc, hides and ores. Mexico takes in return, manufactures-of
various kinds, coal, lumber, leather
and provisions. Canada can compete in. many articles and add t<i
them—fish for example. There is
no reason why, with our growing
commerce and ability to supply exports, Camilla should hot be able
to get her share ol this large trade.

The first trackless trolly street

U. S. COMMENT. ,,, ,.
It speaks highly lor the certainty
lelt by the Britisli government that
there will he no impairment'of' thc
friendly relations with this country
that Great Britain is preparing to'
remove her naval lorces from Canadian waters, on both oceans; and is
likewise proposing to reduce, if not
withdraw entirely, her garrisons Irom
thc Canadian forts.
It secmd by' reports which come bt
Canadian critics that the expectation
is there that Canada will bo called
upon to furnish and maintain at her
own expense the garrisons which havo
been crectedin thc past tor CanadaJs
protection and ol British naval stations in Canadian waters. The withdrawal of the British fleets Irom thus
waters leaves no reason lor tho
maintenance ol the forts save for the
protection of Canada alone, and as
Canada contributes nothing 'irwily
to the imperial defences, she u* likely
to be asked rto maintain the cost of
her own peculiar defences, at the
least.
There is no reason to doubt that
Canada is prepared and will be willing to assume this burdeti. The Can-
amilan people, while intensely loyal to
the British crown, are also'' develop;
ing a spirit ol nationality. Canada
aspires to. a higher posit! in .hah
mere dependency. Hiiro have been,
Irom time lo tiriieL .claims advanced
ol thc right of Canada to deal directly with other states in matters
involving Canadian interests. Without
the intervention of the British lor-
eign office.
Under thcr'circumstaiiccs it would
seem that the Canadian people will
he very willing to assdmc the duty
ol garrisoning ihe forts built by imperial moneyiltor tne defense ol Canada, and thus advance one stL'i lir-
thcr toward the dignity ol a nation
by maintaining an army..for her own
defense.-Scattle P.-l.i '  I

and braces. Very suitable for Christ-
presents.
Last nirrht a Chinaman of a con
filling nature    drove in from Frew
ranch and for     the night  left    Ih c
sacks ot    potatoes in front of    the
Chinese shoe shop near thc    corncr

had been around rather early    this
year and had lelt tlic spuds .or Chrisil
nias gifts for the poor as one    sack
was missing this morning.   This will

that the   Chinaman will give   anyone the idea that he is distributing
larm produce free.
