Thrilling Adventures of Two Ladysmith
Navigators in Voyago Through Blinding Storm of Yesterday
One Sits on Lonely Rock While the Other

Marooned on a desert island , and
lost in a waste of wafers are tlie
adventures that befell two hardy
sailoi'incn from the port of Ladysmith yesterday. In the afternoon
two well known citizens started
oil in a launch for Collin and Thetis
Island. Al Collin island one ot then:
was to land and fix flic light that
needed attending to, while 'the ofh.-r

■.smell of liniment and bandages round
their bands where tlicy blistered

shipwreck. Collin Isla|d—lomirivoirfr
panic—was reached at two o'clock,
ono mariner landed and then Our
Hero steamed away for Thetis Is-
laitd gayly whistling "The Ship that
Never Returned," Eventually Ire
reached Thetis Island—at least !.■;■'

iu tlic teeth of the gathering storm,
while tlic billows rose high and flic

Leaving our hero sailing over the
briny sea with hope in tiis heart ami
a pair of wet boots on bis feci, let
us now return to tlie lone llgurc on
Coffin Island. The light was fix'od all
safely and then the mariner cast tin
anxious eye seaward, watching for
the returning vessel that would bear
hint homeward. Tlie hours passed,
the damp became wetter and hunger
grew apace. Four, live, six, oven
nine o'clock would have struck hail
there    been a clock bandy.   At last
the truth dawned upon him, something. liail happened and here be-was
iriarooned.oil a desert island with no
slipper iii sight, the cruel rain dripping down his back and no shelter or
lire. In his despair he could ohly
box thc compass aloud and trust to
luck. Harry's cheerful .face: that had
breamed upon him so brightly a lew
short hours before had gone—Harry
had taken it with him—but where?

Wc left tlic gallant launch and her
tow bounding o'er the foaming sea.
We find her still bounding. CofDn
Island has not loont.il in sight yet.
Hours have passed/ At last the
weary eye of Our Hero catches sight
of a low dark streak on the weather
bow, "Laud, ho," .he cries with
joy and pushes on the engines.- He
cried out something very different a
little later on when he found that
he was hack again at Thetis island,
a f the very point, whence hours' pre-
viously be had set forth for Collin
Island. Hysnnie mysterious mental telepathy' while thc marooned
mariner on Collin Island was boxing
Hut compass, the launch was doing
tlie same filing and bad run round
in a circle. Having said all he
wanted to and in words tbat rose
above the howling gale, Our Hero
cast oil the tow, left it behind and
once more, anew, be set forth upon
his course. This time lite storm
abated and a lew hours afterwards,
at ten o'clock ml night the launch
thvw near to Collin Island, thc
rescuer', and rcscuec exchanging
conversation emhlnlying their inmost thoughts long before a landing
could be mailc..
In flic calmness ol the night tine

London, Nov. 22.—A despatch to
tlie London Express from Nagasaki
gives a new version ol the report ol
the sortie of the torpedo boat destroyers from Port Arthur which is
said to have occurred at the time
the Rastoropny left. The correspondent of the Express says that the
three boats left two days before the
Rastoropny carrying duplicates of a
despatch from Gen. Stocssel. There
werc some badly wounded officers on
board the boats who preferred to
risk their lives at sea than to meet
certain death in the unsanitary hospitals of Port Arthur. Thc Japanese cruiser Kasuga sank the first
destroyer after a light lasting half
an hour in which all the Russians
were shot or drowned except four
who were rescued Irom the sea by
boats from the Kasuga, after the
destroyer sank. One of these thus
rescued soion died. The cruiser
Alatsusliima sank tlie second destroyer 25 miles from Port Arthur receiving herself an affective blow
from a torpedo. Two .lapanese torpedo gunboats sighted tlie third destroyer off Lia Tisliua! at midnight,
and chased her until four o'clock in
the morning, when the engines of
tlie torpedo boat broke down. Tbe
gunboats discharged two torpedoes
it her both of which struck almost
simiillancously. The destroyer sank
witli all on board of her. The correspondent adds that the Japanese
naval authorities express the highest
admiration for the bravery of the
crews ol the destroyers.

NEAR MUKDEN.
Mukden, Nov. 12.—, via Tien Tsin.
—Since the Japanese attack on Pou-
tilofl! Hill on the night ol Nov. 18,
no activity has been apparent. Tlie
character ol the attack on PoutiloS
Hill is not fully understood beyond
the (act that three or four battalions participated. It prob-.ly w_S
made on the initiative el the local
commander without the consent of
headquarters, and as an attack it
can only be favorably regarded in
the light ot a reconnaisance in lorce.
This incident is the most important
that has happened since thc battle
ol Shakhe.
Poutiloff Hill which is now the
centre of interest of the entire line
could be seen flashing signals of attack Irom her fortifications as the
Japanese infantry advanced.
On account ol repeated reports |hat
the Japanese intended to attack on
Nov. 18th, this assault was believed
to be thc signal tor an advance of
thc entire line, and consequently the
entire Russian army, on the qjui
vivo began its own hostile movement-.. Both east and west ol Pou-
tiloff Hill the Japanese arrived within fifty yards of thc Russian trenches
The Russian lire was too deadly tor
a further advance. The next morning disclosed about 80 Japanese dead
which the Russians buried yester.
day. The Japanese succeeded in carrying oil in haste 200 wounded. The
Russians lost half a dozen men in
the trenches.
Scouting operations on both sides
result daily encounters some times
between battalions, but the encounters are little more than skirmishes.
.The scouting is for the evident purpose of identifying opponent's positions and local strength. The Russians continue daily to shell the position at Linshenpu.

WEST COAST WRECK.
The steamer Queen City has brought
news to Victoria of the first wreck
which has. occurred on the west
coast of this island since the winter
storms set in. Thc vessel lost is
the San Francisco barkentine Make-
weli, Capt. Neilson, which loaded
lumber at Tacoma last month and
-ailed lor Mauritian on Oct. 31st.
Thc crew ol the Queen 'City learned
ol quantities ol lumler having recently washed arh'.rr, especially at
Hesquoit, also of 111.' stern of a vessel having drifted in f om sea on one
ot thc islands, wl.i ir bore evidence
ol lately met destruction.
The Queen City's mail furthermore
contained a nrivate inessa^fc from the
Times correspondent at Clayoq}iot,,
which reports that Masso, a Clayo-
quot Indian, In searching lor wreckage oil their Island ranch near Len-
nard island, came across a life buoy
marked "Makcweli, H. R. & Co.,
San Francisco." The message further stated lhat It is presumed that
thc buoy belonged to a lumber laden
vessel, as" great quantities of lumber are strewn along the beach.
The barkentine la-longs to Hind
Rolph & Company, ot San Francisco
She is a tour-masted wooden vessel,
and was built by W. A. Boole &
Son, Oakland, 1002. Her dimensions
arc given as lollows: Gross tonnage,
1,100 tons; net tonnage, 889 tons;
length, 10-1.1 lect; beam, 3B.5 lect,
and depth ol hold, 17.5 feet. A vessel of this description should be capable ol carrying about a million
feet of lumber.
From the Information narrated
above, says thc Victoria Times,
there can he only one conclusion
lornied, namely, that the Mai-kawcll
has met thc same late that so many
others ol lumber (lecls have in the
past during thc stormy seasons ol
the year.

BALLOT BOX FRAUDS.
The evidence being, brought out at
Belleville regarding the use of bogus
ballot boxes in the elections in Ontario shows a disgraceful condition
of affairs that must give every decent Canndinti n feeling of shame and
horror. It is not n question of polities, it is one of national honor and
the crime when brought home must
lie punished with the utmost severity. There was a time when Canadians Spoke with pride of the fairness with which voting was carried
on in this country. But looser methods began to prevail and now comes
our punishment—a' scandal that pull
li'shos abroad tn the world that the
electors by fraud anil the devices of
a crook can he defrauded and rnblied
of Ibeir votes. It matters not whrrt
the result of Hie present ease; the
mere existence ol the false ballot,
boxes by which by the turn of a
handle bogus ballots can Ire substituted shows thai somebody was us-
ing them. One of Hie wilnesscs states that three hundred of these were
purchased for use in the Ontario
elections. If this weve:sn, the Ross
government, for tlic sake of public
decency must see lo it that thc next
election is in the hands ol officials
against whom thc finger of suspicion
cannot point—not mere parly heeler.
and hangers-on.   The members ot thc
government  say  tlicy  knew nothing
ol these corrupt practices. II so, let
them like honest men make a clean
sweep ot lhc men who are implicated in the (rands. Thc feeling of disgust, that has gone through thc
country since this trial came up is a
credit to the people as a whole. It
is undoubted that the mass of the
brought home to a politician, most
public is honest—that il a crime is
constituencies will refuse to have
him as their representative. The
great reason for this growing corruption in politics, however, is the
leniency of thc sentences meted ont
lo rascals caught in the act. Not a
great while ago a couple ol polling
officials in Montreal werc convicted
and sentenced to certain terms in
prison, bul the government Interfered after the criminals, had liecn incarcerated for only a short time and
llir-y werc liberated, That is not as
if should he. The purity of the ballot'boxes must be,preserved at all
costs. Men who arc put in positions
ol solemn trust in charge ol elections
must be made I'd feel their deep rc-
sponsibi.ity; and if they fail in their
duty they must tukc tllc hitter consequences. Ballot box frauds strike
nt the very root ol responsible government. We cannot permit the will
ol the people to lie frustrated by
sonic scoundrel who purchases another rascal to iln his work. There must
be always two patties to an election
fraud, the man whose interest it is
to have tlie work done ami who pays
lor It, and thc man who accepts the
bribe that sillies his scruples nnd
makes him a liar, a perjuror and a
thief. There can lie no condoning of
these crimes for political purposes.
As we said before, if is not a (Question ol party loyalty, It is one on
which true men o( all parlies should

Earl Filzwilliani. has purchased the
Jlaxlech. ...Castle, .one. ol.the Cape
Mail steamships, and intends to com-
•bine a trip for tbe benefit of his
health in the South Pacific with

that there w'ero coal fields in the
youth Pacific,. Iiecatise coal was constantly washed up on the shores   ol
"My object in going to search for
Ibis coal," said Lord Filzwilliani to

very, simple explanation. I have sufficient money to need investment and

GRAVEYARD
.OF ATLANTIC
Hull, though brought into prominence by the outrageous atttoli of "tirre
Baltic Squadron, is not the only
great trawling port on our' cast
coast, says the London Morning.
Leader. It is probably not even the
greatest, for Grimsby, with an even
briefer industrial history than- its
vis-a-vis on the llumber has been in
a marvellously short time brought- W
the front rank by the combined clergies, of thc fish trade and the great
Central Hallway. Hull and Grimsby between them are responsible for
heavier landings of trawl caught Osl.
than all the other ports ol England
and Wales together. Their fishing
.. communities have ia common Devon
origin, fgr it was thc hardy men ol,
Brixham,. who, in the second half of
last century carried the industry
eastwards to Ramsgato and Lowestoft, and thence in turn, to Sear-
borough, Hull and Grimsby. The attraction of Scarborough was its
Summer visitors, who were always
ready to fay top price for fresh fish;
.and it was while stormbound oil that
' resort that a Brixham skipper ■ ac-
tdally discovered the since famous
"Silver Pit," which duly proved a
perfect mine ijr soles and other
prime fish.
Scarl/orough, however, while it of- j
leredthc certainty of brisk custom
for a limited perioil of the year, has
and had practically no facilities in
the way of shipyards, stores, and
similar reuuisitics of an industrial
marine. This applied wilh almost
equal lorce to the more northern
part of Whitby, since chlclly identified wilh tlie autumn herring fishery:
and an obvious migration to Un
number was the result oi these
shortcomings elsewhere ou the Yorkshire const. A considerable stream
trawling fleet now has its hcaduluar-
tcrs iu the Tync, not at Newcastle,
as was once hoped by the municipal
authorities of that city, but at
North Shields; hut its origin is in
great measure independent of that ol
the Hull and Grimsby trade.
Hull has always admirably answered flic needs of the industry, and its
industry has seldom been more prosperous than it is today. That some
ol its capital and labor should qrhitr
apart from thc practical advantages
offered by the Great Central, have
crossed tiie water fo Grimsby was
onlyto lie expected, the latter porl
uncling greater accominodaftjion,
cleaner water, and less river navigation—a distinct gain in loggy \yoa-.
tiler. The fishing ot both ports is
performed almost wholly by steam-
trawlers, but certain traditional distinctions may he noted. The Hull
boats are rather more given to long
voyages, Iceland and tlie Karoos in
the one direction, and Portugal and
the Hay ol Biscay in the other, furnishing much ol thc fish landed at
this port. Urini-tjr also works these
distant grounds, but home banks in
tlie North Sea have tlie first claim
on its activities. Another difference
lies in the preference ol Hull, lor
what is known as the "fleeting" system, a practice which entails sending the collective catch of several
trawlers to the homo market on a
fast steam-carrier. These steam-
carriers return with their cargo to
both Hull and Billingsgate, the direct trade between the latter and
thc Dogger Bank being- nothiijg new
ns some people have imagined, but an
old-established and important asset.
One obvious advantage ol the "lleet-
Ing," over the "siiigle-.bliating" system is that by the latter arrangement each trawler lands her own
catch, and therefore loses much time
Iu transport which might profitably
lie spent in lisliing.
Other trawling ports on the coast
aro Boston, Lnwcstoll and Rams-
gate. Boston harbors a large, fleet
ol steam trawlers, similar to those
at tho I lumber ports, and equally
equipped lor long voyages If required. Yarmouth, once a great trawling centre, has transferred its capital lo the l.crrinb fishery,, and tho
only trawlers that lie in the; river
today are the small cralt whicli drag
III. inshore beds for shrimps.
Lowestoft Olid IUmsgate belong to
a totally different category of.trawling pint from those more northern
centres which wo have, hitherto been
considering. Like Brixham, the parent nl them all, tlicy favor the smack
the red-sailed trawlers which Ashes
Hie home grounds and returns every
night, or every other night, -with its
catch Iresh loir the .i.arkct. "Steam-
power on these picturesque sailing
trawlers is confined to working tgo
winch thai lowers find raises tlic net,
nnd the old beam.lrawl Isrrsed , not
tho newer otter-trawl in labor ol
the steamers, a pattern in which the
great elm-beam is dispensed with.
The Hull trawlers, on the other hand
do not affect the plclurowuc, hut arc
liiislness-llke steel vessels with , tho
Innnel well aft. On a dark night,
they might easily be mistaken when
under way,    for     ordinary coasting
craft.      On    the  Dogger, however,

Every variety oj„ life nine, wuujse--
out: —cluster pine, Scotch lir, Australian pine -y the ten thousand''

Iwo thousand and one hundred each
of other pines. Spruce, cedar and
juniper were planted almost as profusely, fo these were added all the
coiimion trees of thc ordinary lorcst, rose bushes, creeping plants,
dowering shrubs, pea-vines, hawthorns honeysuckles and wortleberry
bushes. The great enemy to vegeta-
- ion is the cutting and stinging ot
wind-driven sand-blasts. Their- force
may be known from the fact that
many pane- .of glass in the station
.'wildings cease to be transparent,
mil become opaque as Irosted or
"ground" glass. Thc effect of sand
iriven by wiiid onwood is also most
.urious, the erosion often shaping a
beam as if it had been under the
turning lathe. Thc dry gales ot August arc found to be destructive to
many ol the weaker shrubs. Thc
duster pine that flourishes in Brittany seems so far to thrive in Sable
island. The matting ol thc fallen
ullage with thc sand may, it is liop-
■id, give the banks a firmness whicli
iihey ilo not now possess, and go a
long way towards averting the dread
alaslrophe which some prophets gf
-vil pronounce inevitable in thc long
run—namely, the total submergence
if the island beneath the surface of
-he sea.
Mince 1892 thc sea. has encroached
on the land and covered places where
grass formerly grew. The west
sand bar changes In size and snapc
.villi every severe storm. It still
shows ordinarily nine miles of hea-
,y. breakers, succeeded in bad weather by seven more miles where the
depth increases Irom Ave to ten
fathoms. '■•
Since the lighthouses were estab-
.ished in 187., it has been necessary
to move thc west end lighthouse
eastward on two occasions, and the
continuous wasting oi the west end
will soon render a IJiird removal unavoidable. From a wreck-chart prepared it appears that thc number ot
snown wrecks on Sable Island and
its bars for each, decennial period .ol
flic iast century is as follows: Ending 1810, eleven; 1820,) nine'; 1830,
eighteen; r. 18W, twenty-five; 1860,

nineteen, 1800, ten; and 1000 twelve.

DEATH OF LADY,TRAVELLER.
Mrs. Isabella L. Bishop, one ol the
most remarkable women travellers
of modern times, died in.Edinburgh
on tbe 7th: inst. She was the eldest
daughter ol Rev. Edward Bird, B.
A., rector of Tattcnhall, Cheshire,
and was bom on 15th ol October,
18112. She was only twenty.two.
when she began ber travels, coming
to North America, and publishing
later "Thc Englishwomen in America," the first of a long scries ol interesting accounts of her various
wanderings. She stayed lor soven
montlis in the Sandwich Islands, and
in,1871 she wrote of'A Lady's Lilo
in the Rocky Mountains.'. In 1878
she set out upon the first of a number of journeys' she made in the Far
East, and the result (again re-pub-
lishcd letters to .. her sister) was
given in "Unbeaten tracks In Japan." She travelled for several
months in the interior ot the main
island and in Ye.o. -From Niko
nprthwards her route, waspaltoge-
llicr off thc beaten brack, anil had
never been traversed in its entirety
by any European. She-lived among
Ihe Japanese, and saw their mode
of living in regions unaffected by Eu-.
ropean contact. Her land journeys
extended to over MOO. miles, and already she saw the first' fruits of tlic
Japanese reformation which begun
some ten years earlier. fShc. wrote
also oi her experiences in China,
Singapore, and the Malay; Peninsula. In I«81 Miss Bird became the
wile ol Dr. John Bishop, M. D.,Na
well' ' known Edinburgh physician,
who, however, died Ave years later.
In 18110 Mrs. Bishop resumed her'
travels in Asia, this,' this time scl-
clting Persia and Kurdistan, and including, a summer In Uppdr Karun
region and a visit to tho Nesloriati
Rayahs.. Then followed a "series ol
works the   result    ?l a systematic
1901 Mrs. Bishop, now approaching
70 years of age, made what proved
to be her last serious foreign journey—a tour.ol one thousand-riiilei'otf
horseback in Morocco, including tlie
Atlas mountains. Mrs. Bishop was
the first lady to be elected a Fellow
ot the Royal Geographical Society
Her sweet voice and charming manner placed her high in public estimation as a lecturer'.

MACEDONIAN TROUBLES-
London, Nov. 22.— The Stanili.nl
loilaj' prints a long letter- from Constantinople dealing with the situation in Macedonia, The writer says
there lias been a marked change in
the last six months. Formerly it
;t was a question of protecting the
Christian population against violence, but now it has become one
of intervention bbtween vrvrrwnis
Christian elements.
Since the policing of Macedonia
bus been taken out of Turkey's hands
the correspondent says there has
hern returning ironxicts between rival nationalities accompanied by Irar-
baritjes quite as outrageous as those
with which llie Turks were formerl)
reproached. The truth is according
to the Standard's correspondent each
of these Christian elements wants independence and the hatred ol each
therV detestation    ol
branch here and will also have su-! the Turks. The Aiistro-Riissian rc-
pcrvision of tlie Wellinpjlon store. | form scheme, therefore, has not bus

STREET WASHER.
'I'he street department of Seattle,'
proposes to purchase and put in op- j
oration on the paved street of the 1
city next year two high-pressure.
sluicing carts which will be used |
lor the purpose of cleaning the |
streets. These earls arc to be used
because they can be operated during
the day, when trallie is heavy on the
streets without inconvenience to
Irallic. At the present time the
pavcil streets arc washed off every
night with a hose which is hauled
about ou trucks, but this method ol
cleaning the main thoroughfares can
only lie used at night, because when
the hose is stretched along the street
it interferes with traffic. The result
is that though the pavements are
made perfectly, clean during thought
hours, they soon become dirty again
aftor trallie commences in the morning. Mud is carried upon the pavements by wagons from the uupavoil
streets, anil in a few hours i,he whole
street becomes covered with a coal-
ing of dirt. This is packed down by
thc wheels, and when it is wet by
tbe rain if forms a thick sticky
paste At present this paste has to
lie left on the pavements until night
li.fore it can be washed away.
The sluicing carts are so construct
ed that they can Iro driven along a
paved thoroughfare iluring the day,
when the street is in use, and the
muddy paste can be washed oil into
the goiters and carried away, Thcsp
carts have been extensively introduce
ed in the east, it is staled by Superintendent Walters, and the' report
is that they work satisfactorily, The
writer is forced from the carts by,
compressed air and strikes llie pavement 'with sufficient force to cut
away llie mud nnd ilirt that clings
to the street.
