'J'he business ollices and banks were for the  time Iriinsfoi'inL-d into rooms, for  games. 'J'he telegraph opera I ing room  was in pOf-scsr-ion of young people  playing at.''Oltl iMiiid" and "Specula-  lion".

This coming year will sec the  development of the greatest railway  construction which Canada bus  known. The Canadian Northern  and Grand Trunk have each  intimated their intention of extending their systems,lo the Pacific  Coast, and the Trans-Canada is  being organized to build from  Quebec to British Columbia. As  usual these projects are made the  basis of demands for money and  land bonuses, from the Dominion  nnd Provincial government's. At  Inst session of the British Columbia  legislature a bill' was passed to  guarantee bonds for the Canadian  Northern, in consideration of control of rales", but it appear.-- this  assistance is not sullicient for that  company, aiid they threaten that,  unless they get further substantial  concessions, the road will stop nl_  "Cdmonton.       The   (Iraml   Trunk  on the city electoral rolls. The  city elections will soon be on and  citizens who are entitled lo vote  will regret it when too late if they  find themselves unable to record  their votes. Besides, it adds to the  dignity and importance of the city  to have on the roll a full list of  those citizens who are entitled to  vote. Owners of real estate, householders and license-holders are  entitled to have their names on the  roll and they can have this done  by obtaining from the city clerk a  form of declaration and having il  attested before the mayor, a justice  of the peace or notary public.  THE PREMIER.  Talks Hopefully of the Future.  Speaking at the 32nd annual  banquet of the Pioneer Society tit  Victoria, Hon. Col. Prior said he  appeared before them for the first  lime'as premier of   British   Coluni-  demands government grunts otjii'iil   b\i\.     He .fully appreciated    the  "    " '   "      great  responsibility   which he had  as  T   A. KIH  I UK,  Dominion and Provincial  Land Surveyor,  Revelstoice, B.C.  M  ISS EDWARDS,  TRAINED MEDICAL AND  SURGICAL  .^    NURSE.  IiEVELSTOKE.'B. (J.  ftbeikootena\> Mail  FRIDAY, DECEMBER 12,1902.  'The salaries of the city ollicinls  require revision. As these salnries  stand nt present they are not a fit  recognition of the services rendered  anil required.  Speaking'at Victoria II. D. llelm-  ken, M. P. P., said of the political  outlook;- "'It would be found that  Col. Prior would have a good majority when the house met. and that  his policy would meet with the approval of all classes."  That was a manly speech Hon.  Col: Prior made " at Victoria the  other day. It spoke hopefully of  the future and ought to inspire  confidence in the premier's determination to do all in his power lo  promote the best interests of the  province.  Guggenheim, head of the smelter  trust, thinks the outlook ,for silver  is all right and says China and  Switzerland must be big buyers of  silver for coinage purposes. He  says the demand for silver in the  arts is increasing and that tlie  syndicate now scll'l .200,000 ozs. a  month where former!v- thev sold  onlv 700.000 ozs.  RAILWAY OR A XT?.  J'he Commercial say.-: "A statement comes from tlie Pacific coa.-t  to the effect that the Canadian  Northern railway will not be extended tlirougli British Columbia to  the co;if.t unle.-.- tin- province grants ���������  the aid demanded by tlie, company.  If thi.s statement is 'true, it i.- to be  hoped Ihe people of British Columbia will refuse to be taken by the  throat in this way.  ''The Commercial does not presume to say that British Columbia  should not extend any aid whatever to the Canadian Northern mil-  road. We do.' however, say that  British Columbia, like other province? of Canada, has been altogether  too generous in aiding railway and  other enterprises. The profligate  manner in which the public domain  has been given awayi'n British Columbia almost exceeds the enterprise  exhibited by the Dominion in getting rid of the nation's wealth represented by the public -lands of  Manitoba and the territoiir-s. The  evils of tin's policy have become so  ���������.apparent Ibat.at last tlie Dominion  government /has declared that  grants of land will cease. The decision, however, lias not been arrived'-at, until ..irreparable   injury  to those given the Canadian Pacific  The Trans-Canada' also looks on  the public treasury as fair game.  The time bns arrived when this  province should,not be held up by  any railway company. Thesc'rail'-  ways must get to the Pacific Coast,  whose ports arc necessary lo afford  an outlet for the enormous grain  production of the North West. If  the province did not give a dollar  uf cash or an acre of land these  railways will be built, and for any  assistance given the Province must  receive equivalent value!     ������������������'  'J'he Canadian Pacific is an object  lesson for all time in'landand  money grants. , Tlie Dominion  paid foialhc building of this road  nnd should have retained . the  'ownership. The government of  that lime preferred to put $70,000,  000 of public money into the  pockets, of the Canadian-Pacific  promoter* at the sacrifice of the  public interests. And how have  the'public been treated? It is true  ihe railway gives a good service,  but it is also true that the people  of Canada, liaving practically made  a present of that railway to a company, have to pay excessive freight  and passenger rates���������much higher  rates than ��������� levied,' by ' any  oilier through' road on the  continent. The original arrangement, that . when' the, company's profits amounted to 10 per  cent the rates were lo be lowered,  is n dead letter. The company's  accounts show earnings of' '20 per.  cent on heavily watered stock, but;  because tlie company pays 5 per  cent on its water instead of 1Q pet-  cent on the actual capital., invested  it escapes this obligation by a  financial trick and has thus broken  faith with tho people.- Again ihe  company ivns lo pny iis share of  the public taxation within a certain  period, which has expired? Yet  the company lias broken 'faith with  the public in this matter also, and  has so far successfully "avoided payment of its share of taxation. The  position' in which nn important  distributing centre like Revelstoke  is placed as regards freight rates is  nothing short of a public, scandal.  There is no better evidence of this  than the "fact that it pay,- lo ship  goods from Montreal to Vancouver  and back again to Reveistoke���������in  other woids the present tariff is, so  unfair that the company will do  7.50 miles of haulage beyond Revelstoke for less than lor delivery at  this point. How different];-'  Spokane is treated by the lirt-ut  .Northern? Spokane is geographically to the Great Northern  what Kevelstoke is to the C. P. R  Such glaring injustice in railway  rales demands state intervention,  and shows the'necessity of government control of railway schedules.  It shows the folly 'of the people-  giving huge subsidies to railway  companies, who repay such generosity by imposition and abuse ' of  the privilege.- conferred on them.  Where the government has to  heavily subsidies the railway company in the first place, it i--, ln-lt.-r  for tiie government to take in hand  the building and operation of tin-  line. There is no greater puljlir  outrage than the railway position  in Kootenay today. The cro\eminent bns spent many millim.* in  cash and land grant.- lo se. ure lib-  opening of the Kootenay fount ry  hv railways, bill lli.-st- hug.- puLli'-  ! irills ton private corpora inn i .in;  nullified'by the excessive fn-Ldil  rates charged.

Were these, lines owned and operat-  undertaken, and intended,as far  he could to give the province honest  and fair government. (Applause.)  He had'been told that he was up  against a hard proposition.(' Laughter.) Well, he saw before him  many.who in their day had been  up against hard propositions.  (Renewed laughter and applause.)  And they overcame those difficulties,  and thai was what he intended lo  do if pluck and courage would do  it. lie would not show the white  feather in tbo0task he had undertaken. IJe had faith in British  Columbia. Touching upon the  condition of affairs in the province  of British Columbia today, the  affairs were not so bad as some  .would try to make out. lie believed, indeed, that the province  was in, a fairly satisfactory'" condition. There was nothing much  lo complain of. Any,, man who  had a .fairly- good chance could  make an excellent living in British  Columbia today. Tho agricultural  industry was in good condition;  bountiful crops ��������� were raised last  season,c and good prices were obtained.' The snnie'optimistic condition could be applied to lumbering, fishing unci mining. On this  latter point he felt in a position ' to  speak with sonic degree of authority.  He was emphatically of the opinion  that the industry was on ti good  basis. The Rossland mines are  today shipping more ore than at  'any time in their history. ' Great  progress was .being 'made in the  Boundrny -country. One hundred  thousand tons of zinc ore -will be  shipped to the United States this  year., All this means prosperity  for llio country. (Applause.) The  Atlin district also was most prosperous, and (here was,be was happy  to say, on the occas.ion of the  Pioneer's dinner, a new era of  prosperity setting in on the old  Cariboo.  ���������v  /  BUILDING.

Hitherto, like most men  of my cloth,- I had been constantly  hard up; of late, all hut In "Queer  street," for I,had yielded only loo readily to the fascinations of London. After many years of service abroad, this  spell nt home. In the heart and center  of life, was enough to turn any one's  head. 1 was iiow on the headquarters  Stan",' with an appointment in the intelligence department, and I foiuuPpeo-  ple were very kind; shoals of invitations came" in, and I accepted everything���������balls, 'dinners, routs. I weut  everywhere on the chance of-meeting  Frida Fnirholnie, at whose feet 1 had  ��������� fallen the very first day we met. I  worked hard at the office, hut I played  hard, too. making the most of my time,  of my' menus, wliieli, unhappily, did  not go far. Four or five 'hundred 'a  year is not exactly nfllucucc for a careless young soldier, witli a war office  appointment, aping the ways of a finished man about town. Gloves, but-"  toulioles and cab fares swallowed up  half of it, aiid with the other half I had  hardly been able to keep out of debt.'  That, at least, nnd without looking  further, was all over now. ' ,.  Savory had suffered more than once  from the narrowness of my budget:  but'he had been very, good and patient,  aDd I was glad to think he would be  the first to benefit by niy good fortune.  "Would you like"your money?" I asked as I buttoned up my coat and-made  ready to start for the otlke, a little late  in the day.  "Well, sir, I am rather pressed. The  quarter's rent Is overdue, and the landlord called twice yesterday. If you  could make it convenient"���������  "How much do I owe you?"  "Seventeen pounds eleven for the  rooms, and Mrs. Savory's bill is ������0."  I had taken out my checkbook while  lie spoke nnd wrote him a check for  ������50.-   '  "A little 'check! There! Keep what's  over after you've bought u nice bit of  earner ttian this. It liad hardly occurred to me that I, need not go to the office at all. You see, I had been some  13 years under discipline and not many  hours an archmillionaire. Besides,  there is such a thing as esprit de corps.  I was a public servant, engaged in responsible work, and I could noi, would  not, have neglected it willingly; uo, not  for the wealth of the Indies.  So I stepped briskly down ihe steps  below the Duke of York's column and  crossed the park at my very best pace.  For all that, I was overtaken near  Birdcage walk by some one who hailed  me ���������without coming quite close.        ���������>  "One word, sir, I pray, in your own  best interests. But, sakes alive, keep  back that hound. He-is a fine beast,  no doubt,c but I'd rather have him  farther away."  "Quiet, Roy! My dog will not harm'  you," I said civilly. "But at this moment I nm very much pressed"���������  "If you will allow me to walk with  you a few yards, no more, I reckon'I  could make it plain to you that I have  a good excuse for intruding upon your  valuable time." ,  The park was .is open to him as to  mo,'find when lie ranged himself alongside I made no objections. I confess I,  too, was curious to hear what lie had  In en v  Tu be colliiniied.  0<  leSe  R. F. Perry was in the city from  Uoldfields this week,and reports such  progress with the Northwest.

Project to Raise Them by a Dam
Tho United" States Government's
determination to'investigate a-'feasible plan of maintaining, if not to
lift,, tho present level of the Great'
Lakes has caused a' great deal of
comment -in m'tfrine Circle's of Chicago, and has amused great enthusiasm at-all otlier --.ports, and j-the

that thojcxperts who vvill carry on

at an early date.     .   ' - \
Tire question' of the practicability
of such a plan is not altogether new,
but it appears that former experiments along these lines have never
been carried far enough, because .until very recently there has been ample deptli of water at various,t ports
and through the rivers, and channels
connecting them. During the last
few-years, however, vcssolmen say"
lake levels, have dropped at an al-
ai-tning rale, and the point is now
reached where much fear is expressed
for the'' future of-eommeice. The
condition becomes more noticeable,
marine interests' contend, since the
tentU-ncy of shipbuilding is toward
the larger and deeper draught craft.

that it may be practical to erect

be felt in Lake. Huron, but in lesser degree, the'water being raised
perhaps two feet. Tt is. not obvious

Recently a Canadian levenue cruiser chased a suspicious- looking
schooner along the Cape Breton
shore and next morning- the whole
coast was found to' be strewn with
casks of intoxicating liquors, writes
a St. John, Newfoundland, correspondent. These had, come from the
schooner, which was a St- Pierre
smuggler and was. making for a
landing place when chased by , the
cruiser. To escape conviction she
threw the contraband cargo over-

In this incident, is embodied one

thousands of dollars - worth of

in London Tit-Bits by a gentleman,
a great iiefsonat friend of the much-
condemned nuui, who pointed out the
house occupied by the famous prisoner of Devil's Island as we i>asi,od
down a quiet, suburban thoroughfare
of the world's gayest city. He had
had mi interview wilh Dreyfus that
very week. He found him writing
at his desk as unconcernedly as . a,
retired banker, determined to take
life easy.
He explained Ural he accepted the
"pardon." which many deelVire" lie
should not have done, at the sole
advice of his friends, and on the understanding 'that he'could tipjieal
against the decision. Thit chance
has gone, now ��� that the President
has proclaimed an amnesty'for all
Dreyfus-, continued my friend, "is
not a sympathetic man at first sight,
rather the "other way; but the. more'
you see of him��� nnd f have ^chatted
with him some seven or eight times
during tho present vear���the
After each conversation your opinion of him improves. You quickly
discover this ' fact, that he views
with broad humanity tho 'motives
and acts of the men 'who made him
curse the hour of his birth a thousand, times. ,    - ,
He acknowledged, to mo one day
that his natural inborn reserve had
made him many tenemies.
"Until 1 mot my wire." he once
said to me, "I never <ytrcd��for the,
society of anybody., It was wrong,
but I never know it"until it was too
late. I sought no friends iind
acquaintances because I had not the
inclination, nnd because my ambition to succeed madelne careful of
my time.- The/- bouts devoted' to
friendly intercourse - would lie better
spent in study, I thought. Whcn"t"
joined the ,l general -stall", for . instance,, I made not a single-,call ���
just sent my*card to superiors surd
comrades alike. It made bad blood;
they'thought mo uncivil."
Dreyfus admits, without a shadow
of hesitation, that many features of
his'case arc unexplained to this day.
JIc has many sincere friends' who
visit him frequently. ""Thus the ex-
prisoner of Devil's. Island spends his
time", happy iu the confidence and
love of his wife,' and children. With'
tho, exception ��� of the police and a
few'special friends, no one knows of
his' whereabouts.

that had taken place m .her mistress.
There was a worn, anxious look in

Then we began to notice that ��� Air

at supper. "Haven't rnj, words come

that he was going to London _ior a .

mo the climax of all tho changes.

On tho firth" day after his departure, at live ' in the evening, Air'
Porter returned. 1 was in 'tire front

sacred-'to him as his daughter, but
having a great love, of flowers, and
.having acquired "'some know-lodge' of

that rose to  my lips at the     sound
of my name so strangely associated.

Just the shadow of impatience
crossed (he gill's face aL this speech,
hut she laughed merrily and continued her way through tho shop.
It vvas Ida's first visit'to the great
works of which her father was the
owner. - She had be-on roared ,ln the
exclusive atmosphere of wealth, sind
her vision had not reached much beyond her father's palatial'mansion,
tho then I res,,, tho other palatial mansions in "our set," and the Continent ah toi.r.
Of coursb, sl'.e knew about the
gi-e-at mills, , but heretofore to her
they had been ��� simply acres of
gloomy, smoking prisons, from 'which
(hero was wrested the money that
bought nil  the good things.   ,
On this pleasant day in' the early
autumn, wearied with the conven-
liona! round of pleasures and pastimes with which she was surfeited,
and somewhat- aroused by a novel
she had been reading, which dealt
witli the woild' of workers, she had
determined to see the inside of those
groajL smoky shops and find just
what was going on there and the
manner of" men who lived among
Ihem. "
Her'lather had laughed at her,,
whim, and as he had not time that
day to go with her,, Philip Hammond acted ns ' her escort. Philip
was her constant champion ��� her
destined husband ��� tho son of Air.
Norton's life-long friend, a successful banker. ' -      <.
Jt  was  but   a   moment  after      the
conversation   recorded  between    "Miss
Norton and Air" Hammond that     an
iircidcnt occurred.
A man  directly ahead of the vibit-
iors-.   carrying <t   heavy      load  on  his
.shoulders,"     made     a   misstep,     fell
j against a great leather bolt, and was
I curried  oil'   bis feet and was canned
[upward wilh the bolt.     As he reali/.-
]ed     his     .danger' he gstvo a fearful
i shriek  and  Ins      eyes met those   .of
' Aliss Norton.     The mortal  terror of
Ihem burnt   into "her very soul    and
she shrieked:
"Philip Philip, savo him! Oh,
save him!
She saw lire wheel to which the
belt was dragging him and knew
that he must be crushed.
Philip smw the fearful danger, but
stood as one paralyzed.
He could have reached the man
from where lie vvas, but stood trembling with white face and horror-
stricken eyes
The attention of the entire shop
had b"cn attracted by the shrieks,
and a score of men weie running toward the scene.
"Pull that lever, you there with
tho white cap! The black one!
Quick: Thiow olf the belt!" came
in clear, commanding tones from behind Hin Hammond did not stir.
Ife threw up one hand to .shut out
the sight of the man being crushed.
in the meantime past the two visi-
mtin  who had shoul-
arin badly crushed,  but alive.
Then the blacksmith led go the
wheel and the machinery started to
whirr and buzz. The men crowded
about him, uttering congratulations.
"Well, J'in blest, Joe. You saved
Alike from bein' made into mincemeat that time. I didn't think it
could be done. By Jove, Joe, I'd
like to have your muscle."
These and similar compliments
were fired at him as he turned with
a broad grin to the forge.  ' '
Directly in his way stood a beautiful girl with blanched face, her
great ,brown -eyes swimming 'with
"Oh, sir,. J want to say you are
the lira vest and strongest sind quickest man J over saw. J cannot thank
you too much. J was afraid he
would bo crushed to death "   '
He flushed to the roots 'of his
hair.       '
That evening Tda went  over      the
scene, with her father. ��� -He-know   all
[about-it. and told her that the res-
icticr was Joseph Afadcrn.
I    "One of tho best- lncn wc have," ho
paid warmly.. "A thorough mechanic
and an inventor.     We keep him,    at
ihe forgo     because  there  is  a     particular' part of the machine th   'has
to be done     by    hand,  and  Alailern

J-'ew men have the strength and skill
combined lb do it.     Wc i>ny him   as
well as though     he were a  foreman,
but have to   keep him at the' forge.
I have ordered that ho bo handsomely rewarded for his heroism to-day."
' Papa,   I  want you  to invito   him
to dinner,"  suddenly said  Ida, after
some minutes spent in  thought.
"Who?" asked Air. Noi;ton, looking up  from  his paper.
"Air.   Aladern. .' I  think  it     would
be a much nicer way to show appreciation  of his  heroism  than    merely
to give li'im money."'
Air.  Norton  smiled,
wholly     undemocratic
stincts. .       o
"Hut your mother," he said.
' She had an answer, and the result
was that doe. Alndern found himself with paljiitating heart, going up

Mrs..Norton absented herself from
dinnerAvith  .cold  disapproval.
'After dinner Aliss Norton took her
strange guest to the library; and
was astonished' at the wide knowledge he displayed of books and the
strong" opinions he hold on-economic
topics.   , ���
He told her of their workingnien s
club and the discussions they. had.
"You should attend one of our open
meetings; it would interest you," ho
said. ���   - -,
"I wiil," she replied, -and she, did,
and was still .more astounded to
hear him in debate wlicrc ho stood
like a lion to fight for his opinions,
using' always the most forceful language and,, displaying tho widest
reading- and information.
She invited him to call and ho did
once or twice. As he was about to
take his departure on the second
occasion ho said:
"1 think this is the last time, Miss
Norton, that 1 will see you, and I
want to tell you how "thoroughly I
appreciate your kindness and how
much '1 have enjoyed the evenings I
have spent here." ,
"The last time!" she repeated, the
blood rushing     to her face.     "What

That crack cavalry corps, the 9th

to letters wiiTrty have been received

treatment of ii native which took

On tire night ^of arrival at that
station the men of the regiment wore
entertained by men of the Gordon
Highlanders nnd the Royal Horse
Artillery, and on tho same night a
native vvas brutally ill-treated. He
was either kicked or struck, being so
severely injured'that his death resulted a week later. He was found
nearly four miles from the barracks
occupird by the Oth Lancers, and
was taken to hospital, remaining unconscious till the day of his death.

ill-used' him. ' Up to thsit' lime tho

.Although I here is much against
(he probability of a native accurately " identifying' a khaki uniform in
the, dark, his dyingAstalenient led to
inquiry.. ' ' ' ,
were found within (he linos of the
Olli Lancers, and this justified, further investigation. Much'unlive evidence vvas taken and very strict inquiry wsis made in the regiment.
Three special courts were held, , but
all to no .avail. So far as the efforts of the regiment were ', concerned tho matter remained si , complete mystery.     ' '      u
However, Loud Cur/on lias very
properly determined to treat all assaults upon natives as matters of
great gravity, and with the object of
getting to the loot, of the matter a
general was sent from headquarters
to conduct'' a further investigation.
At the conclusion the general stated,
that it-vvas hardly fair to- blame
the regiment individually, and promised to report as favorably as possible. Ho'added, however, that the
Government had decided to 'punish
the whole regiment if the culprit was
not .found out, and ho appealed to
the guilty man to como forward and
save  tho'regiment from punishment.
'   Tho apjicnl  met with  no  response,
and  during    August    the  promulgation of the punishment-was made.
Jt was a punishment of drastic seventy. Jt was decided that all officers, .non-c-ommissioned officers, and
men on leave in India should Uc .immediately-recalled,'nnd that no( further leave in or out of the country
should bo granted till January,
1903, and (ho disgrace brought upon tho regiment was emphasized by
the "extraordinary order that sentries should be' placed on all buildings occupied by,.llic regiment, until
Ihe.same date.      ,- , .    -
As si further punishment it was also staled that llie regiment would
be debarred from service at the Delhi durbar, but,- owing to tho ' fact
that many Indian veterans would bo
present who have been associated
with the legimcnt, ii was felt that
this miglit be taken sis a personal
affront to Ihem and'lo the force
which served at Delhi dur;ing the mutiny. This part of the punishment,
was therefore1 withdrawn.'arid tho
regiment will fake its place among
the troops to bo represented at tlie
coronation durbar.. ..

AndHhis treatment must'be rspociak
,ly galling   to  a.  regiment that     has
returned straight from long and arduous  service  in  South   Africa      to
service in India, and thus denied the
applause     and  appreciation  received
by those regiments whose more happy fortune has brought them back to
England.  -
Jn his survey of individual accomplishments at the close of the
war, Renter's correspondent' spoke
of the Oth as the one cavalry regiment, that by common consent had
upheld the " highest and most brilliant traditions of English cavalry,
and it is on this regiment of splendid accomplishment and hitherto .unblemished fame that this punishment
and disgrace have fallen.
The punishment is nn antiquated
method and undeserved way of
treating crime. To punish all for
the crime of one may bo easy, but
it is unjust; and the British public
showed by its disapproval of tho
wholesale punishment in the Sandhurst affair bow little it is in accord with such measures.

Rare Variety Arrives in Hamburg
From Borneo.
Alost   monkeys   have nothing     but
nose-holes, and-no real nose,  as   we
consider it.     But there is a    monkey
in     Hoi'tieo    that     has a  long nose,
longer  even   than   thsit   of  particularly long-nosed human beings.    A specimen  of this monkey, known as the
proboscis     monkey,     has    just been
brought alive to Europe, and is now
lf, I in     Hamburg.    The     queer creature

Value' of the Seismograph in   Recording .Earthquakes'   at
Long Distances.,
At the recent meeting at Belfast
of the , British Association', Prof.
John Alilne said that Ihe usual yearly average of earthquakes whoso effects were felt all over the world is
about fifty. Recently, however, they
have been more numerous. Jn tha
three , years between Januarv J,
ISO!), and January 1, 1902, tho
number recorded was 306.
Jt is only-within the' past ten    or
twelve years that seismologists have.,
been able     to record instrumentaliy
the efforts    of earthquakes at    long ,
distances from the ]ilarc of origin of
the shock.'    The seismograph was in-'
vented  about fifteen years ago      for-
the     purpose     or     recording earth
movements that could not otherwise
be observed.    Jn Japan, for example,   ���
there  are thousands  of earth  movements or tremors every year"  which ���
are too slight to be noticed by those
on the ground,  though it is, slightly
moved beneath their feet.    There'are
several forms     of     the seismograph,
but the most' common  is tho pencil-
tipped   pendulum' so  delicately      adr.'n
justed that the slightest earth movement where it-stands'is at-once re-  -
corded-on the paper beneath it.-,-,
,At the, time of the great Japanese''
earthquake in 1S9L it was recorded "
by a seismograph a"s far awny as
Shanghai, ��� China. But no one "' at
that time., supposed that the cilccts
o'f tho severest earthquake' shocks
wore distributed through the rocks-
clear - '
it was not until a number of sesi-
lijographic stations were ' established
in Europe that it was found that severe shocks-occurring on the'margin
of the Pacific ,Ocean could be recorded there: ..Shock's of the greatest intensity cannot lo-dny,occur anywhere without the' fact being almost '
instantly communicated through tho
rocks to seismographs in all parts ���
of the world. ���        ���'"���

Prof. 3Vlilne says that in till cases
the center of origin of world-shak-'
ing'shocks lics*o'n,,the flanks or near
the bases of the steepest flexures or
breaks on the earth's surface. Many
of them occur in tho abysses- of llio
sea and it is usually found" that
when, these terrible shocks originate '
on land i'arge areas arc raised or
lowered as tho result of the shock.
Thus', in Japan, in 3891, a breaking down of tho rocks occurred
among the mountains' where tho disturbance originated. 'The length of
this break wnsi ��� traced for" forty
miles and tho area of subsidence,
which embraced the western part of ,
the Nco Valley, sank vertically from
ton to twenty foot."
During      the      New Madrid  earthquakes of 3SI 1-1.'!, which occurred in.'
the    Afssissippi   . Valley,  in what is
now  the  southeastern   part  of      tha
Missouri  and  tlie northeastern    part   '
of Kansas,   . an    area -   about fi,000 '
square miles,.subsided  vertically     on
an average of about fen feet.
Some of these, sunken areas permanently attracted drainage .from
the surrounding country svnd ', remain to-day as bikes, the memorials'
of ti terrible ' period of convulsion

There wore no such things as sois- ���
niographs in those days, but men
who were scattered over our country felt the effects of those earthquake shocks throughout it ' region
embracing about one^third^of,- our
present territory. ,'Seismographs,
would undoubtedly - have .recorded
these earthquakes throughout the .
world. - t
.The-colossal,-cause ,o( one of y the -\
greatest, earthquakes,, in tho- past
century has been quite clearly established. The Assam earthqaiikcp of
1S97 was , , due to�� si, movement-, of
about 30,000 square miles of thc'ui)-
Iicr rocks throng!)-a distance of sixteen foot.
Tho Cutch earthquake of 18J9 resulted ' -in the subsidence of 2,000
square miles of country and the elevation of a ridge fifty" miles in
length. - Similarly, when the center
of origin of great earthquakes has
been sub-oceanic, soundings have
shown that vast depressions have
been formed under llio sea while
coast lines have been raised or lowered. Jn 1822, about 100,000 square
miles along the coast of Chili were
permanently lifted about three feet.
In addition to the great earthquakes there occur every' year some
10,000 minor shocks, a great many
of which arc detected only by the
use of seismographs. It is supposed that many of'these shocks slight--
ly relievo tho strain-upon the underlying rocks which "are -being slowly
bended or lifted by subterranean for- '
cos, without causing enough motion
lo create any serious disturbance at
the surface'.

The vanity of the J'Yench race occasionally meets with an amusing
