The Noted Divine, Lecturer
and Writer Passes
Away.
Washington, D. C, April 14- Rev.
T. DeWitt Talmage, the noted Presbyterian divine, diad at 9 o'clock Saturday night at his residence in this
city. ' It has been evident lor some
days that there was no hope ot his recovery and the attending physician
bo informed the family. Tde patient
gradually grew weaker until life
passed awav so quietly tbat even tbe
members of the family, all of whom
were watching at tbe bedside, hardly
knew that all was over. Tbe immediate cause ot death was inflammation
of tie biain.
Dr. Talmage was in poor health
when be started away from Washington for Mexico for a vacation and rest
six weeks ago. He was then suffering
from influenza and serious catarrh
conditions. Since his return to Wash
ington some time ago he has been
quite ill. Until Tuesday, however,
(ears lor his death were not entertained. The last rational words uttered by him were ou the day preceding the marriage of his daughter,
when be said: "Of course I know you,
Maud." Since then he has been unconscious.)
At Dr. Talmage's bedside, besides
his wife, were tbe members of bis family: Rev. Prank DeWitt Talmage,
Chicago; Mrs. Warren G. Smith
Brooklyn; Mrs. Allan R. Donnan,
Richmond, Mrs. Clarence Wyckoff
and Miss Talmage, Washington.
While arrangements for the funeral
ha ye not been finally completed, tbe
family have about decided to have the
body taken to the Church of tbe Covenant here on Tuesday, where services
will be held. The body will then be
conveyed to Brooklyn, where interment will be made in the family plot
in Greenwood cemetery, probably on
Wednesday.

An Old Dream of Inventors
Put to Practical Use in
California.
To make tbe unruly ocean, with its
ponderous waves and resistless tides,
work for man is an old dream that bas
lured many inventors, yet. the city of
Santa Cruz, California, possesses proof
tbat it is not all a dream. For four
years an efficient wave-motor has
been working on tbe coast near that
town.
It stands at the edge I of a rocky
cliff fronted by deep water. Two well-
holes, one eight and tbe other five feet
in diameter, were sunk in tbe rock,
'the foremost within five leet of the
edge of tbe cliff and the other directly
behind it. These wells extend from •
level thirty feet above high tide to a
point below ebb tide, and at the bottom are connected by a horizontal
tunnel with the ocean, so that the water stauds in the wells at the same
level as in the sea outride.
In the well nearest the clifl-edge is
a counterbalanced float, rising and
falling with tbe swells ot tbe sea. The
second well contains the plunger ot a
force pump, working in a long pump,
working in a long pump-barrel and
and actuated by being connected with
the rising and falling float.
In tbis way sea-water is forced on
every down stroke of tbe piston in the
pump to a vertical height ot one hundred and twenty-five feet, where it
enters a five thousand-gallon tank,
carried on a derrick sixty feet above
the ground. Prom tbis tank it runs
off to smaller tanks distributed along
tbe roadsides over the surrounding
country, where it is used for sprinkling.
Tbe pump and the float are both
carried by guides, supported by a derrick above the wells, and fastened to
the end of a round timber sixtvfeet in
length, which is counterbalanced at
the butt and provided with wheels
running on a short track, so that it
can advance or recede as well well as
oscillate up and down, and thus the
entire apparatus is kept in adjustment.

TUESDAY, APRIL 15,1902
Under the name of the Biitish Columbia Ooal Company, limited, an
association has been formed in Victoria to aevelope six square miles of
coal lands in the Similkameen valley.
j If, as is generally expected, the Yu-

it is not difficult to see tbat the prob-'
leiu of supplies will be solved by a
railway running through British Columbia. When tbis is done the bouu- •
dary question will be less important'
than it is today. Northern British ;
Columbia will be connected with tbe
Northwest Territories, and the miners
will be levelling in bread made of No,
I hard, British Columbia fruit and
tiah and Alberta beef, while all these
regions will profit by selling their
stuff at miners' prices. Eastern Canada will supply manufactures. Our
American friends will uot be "in it"

by rail,   unless   they   join the   great j

The house committee has reported
favorably the senate bill giving Mrs.
William McKinley an annual pension
of $5 000. As the estate of the late
President McKinley was said to be
valued at over a quarter.of a million,
it is pale to assume the taxpayers who
will have to loot tbis expense will not
appreciate tbis unwarranted extravagance. If Mrs. Kinley will decline
acceptance of tbe donation, she will
be remembered with grateful pride by
a nation ut admirers.

Templeman said it looked like a line

latter would read more correctly if it
were as follows : "Only by consent of
the Canadian Pinch."

The City of Columbia is Isltuated

Apples, plums, iieurs, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small frnitana
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and brick' lime and' stone
of good? quality pah always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country-, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes, have been discovered
through the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the city by pimping from a beautiful spring of exeep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plant
of the kind iu America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the benutible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational centre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest city in the interior.
