Showing the Dates and Places of Conn  of Assize, Nisi Priiis, and Oyer an  Terminer, and General Gaol />/?//.���������������,  ryfor the year 1804.  is  and  Dclive-  While showing at Syracuse,   N.Y.,  las,t Friday night,  Bob(������Fitzsimmons  knocked out his sparring partner, Con  Riordan,'  by an   upper-cut.     Riordan  died? at 3  o'clock Saturday   morning'  without regaining consciousness.       <3  The,show was  exhibiting, at. Jacob's  Opera House.   Riordan. it was alleged, ���������  had been drinking: heavily, and he gave  evidence of this when he walked on the  stage for his "go" with  Fitzsimmohs".  After a few   exchanges   Fitzsimmons  landed  orr^ Riordan's  jaw    with   the"  right.   It was sufficient to cause Riordan to reel and fall on his knees.   Then  he fell over,, apparently lifeless.   The  audience  became "very   excited,'   and  many  jumped   orr   their   seats   and  shouted.   Two physicians were hastily  summoned, and Riordan was removed  into one of the.w.ings where the doctors  worked for hours in the effort to bring  the man to,   but it  was   of no avail.  After 3 o'clock he sank rapidly until  death intervened.' The physicians, Fitzsimmons and a few members oi* the  company were present.    Fitzsimmons  was afterwards, locked up.   In "an interview he stated that he did not know  Riordan was in such bad condition. He,  declared that whenever he sparred with  Riordan  the latter  inevitably' turned  blue around  the mouth!.     "This," he  sard, "was a sign   for  me to let up.  Last night I noticed he was "not right.  ,lhe blow that caused the  trouble was  merely a, slap.", , Riordan, he said, was  a hard drinker, and his poor condition  was likely due to heart trouble.   Fitzsimmons   was   taken    before   Countv  Judge Northrup and bail fixed at $10,(KX)  to answer to the charge of manslaugh  ter in the first degree.

At'Nanainio, last Friday,  William  Quail, a mirier, employed, by the New  Vancouver Coal  Co., met with a, fatal  accident in No'.l level of the Esplanade  shaft.   John "Wilson and Charles Webster wore working on a cross-cut which  was being put through for an airway.  The shot fired  by them blew through  to the ceiling,   where  Quail  and   his  partner,   C. Hansen,   were   working.  Quail received the   full force  of the  blast about the head  and shoulders.  With his skull fractured, his neck and  both arms broken and   other severe  injuries, death was not immediate, and  he lived until bis companion sUrted  to carry him  to the pit-head, where  death gave him  welcome  relief from  his agony.     Quail   hud |,e(.n  several  years in the employ of the  company.  He is a'young man, and  it is supposed  hai relatives in eastern Crnada.  The Columbia River and Arrow Lakes'  by Moonlight.  p [B"X our correspondent.]  It is a new experience for travellers  on the Columbia River to leave Revelstoke by the-R. & A. L. Railway, as I  did last Thursday evening, at 5 o'clock,  take steamer at the end of the track,  about  10 miles'down and known as  Wigwam Junction,  reaching Robson  about  10  o'clock   the  next' morning.  This night trip is rendered possible by  means of the powerful electric search  light with which the steamer Lytton  has been recently fitted,   aud  which  enables her to run safely at night, even  at the present low stage of > the river.  The revolving light is made to illuminate the darkness at any desired point  of the compass and to detect obstruction's,  or to reveal  the   buoys which  have been anchored as guides to indicate the channel.  At Hall's Landing the steamer called  to   leave   "Uncle"   Henry- Lovewell,  whose building is   the   only one  left  standing,'on  its original foundations,  those of all the other settlers having  been moved by the June floods. ������ In  spite of all the discouragement caused j  ,by this terrible flood,' nine of the" settlers, arc still  occupying their farms,  two 'more are coming, and' only one  has gone���������J. W. Jloxley, who sold out  his place at a good price  to Bourne'  Bros, of Revelstoke.    It does not seem  possible that the river could have risen  25 to,30 feet above its.present level,  submerging the !>ench land on which  the forests have been growing for centuries, and which bear no flood marks  of any former period of high .water.  This gives the settler's encouragement  to' still "hold   on'and   improve  their  farms, although the recollection of the  scenes of June and the possibility of'  .their   recurrence, .together-   with "the  losses  they suffered,   cause" them   to  move slow in  the work-of restoring  their farm's jtnd1 homes.  At-10 p.m. we arrived at the Halcyon  Hot Springs, which ,is the new name  given-by Capt. Sanderson to his pleasure and sanitary resort on the Upper  Arrow YLake. The improvements he  has made in clearing away the forest  "and e'recting'a large and well-appointed  liotelduring the last "year are a genuine surprise to those whose vision they  greet for the first time, as they did  mine, in the', clear' November  light.  At I a.m. we were at Nakusp, but the  steamer's arrival at Robson was unexpected, (ind- the train from Nelson did  not meet her, as the telegraph was not  working from Nakusp, and her* coming  could not be wired. It was, therefore,  late in the afternoon before she left for  Trail Creek and Northport.  The Lytton' is now making her last  trip to Northport for the season, and  takes on about 60 tons of ore at Trail  Creek  for shipment to Tacoma.   The  steamer  will,  however,, run   between  Wigwam Junction and Robson as long  as the weather will permit.   The last  trip last winter was on January ISth.  Her officers, Capt. Gore, Purser Anderson and Steward Tompkins, experienced some of the dangers of navigation  when the steamer Columbia was destroyed by fire;  as also Mate Ritchie,  who was captain of the steamer Queerv  when she blew rrp last summer on the  North Thompson   River,   near' Kamloops.    Engineer Hatherly has safely  regulated the power that has propelled  the Lytton the entire season.   But all  the steamer's competent official staff  will be glad to take their well-earned  vacation wherr winter sets its seal on  these inland waters.  LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY.  Mr. KITCHEN, MENTIONS A FEW  ',   - . ,     THINGS.  HAS NO USE 'FOR HYDRAULIC MINING.'  On Friday Mr. T. E. Kitchen brought  up some facts he had been seeking out  since the election.     Speaking of the  dyking clause in the Address, he said  it was for the House to consider which  was   of, the   most   consequence���������the  farming lands on  the Fraser or the  paltry-sums obtained   on   the   upper  part of the river ftoni hydraulic mining, because the same difficulty was  going to arise, here as on tho Sacramento River.    He warned them that  the river alrove Chilliwack was gradually silting up with gravel, and as long  as this silting wenton in consequence  of the' hydraulic mining, they would  have to go-on raising dykes.   It was  within   his  recollection when steam-  ' boats could travel much'further up in  the fall than at present.   ;  .PICKS OCT THE FAVORED ONES.  Mr.'Kitchen  then  pitched' into the  matter of advertising the voters' lists.  He said the Vancouver- World received  over $800 for publishing the Vancouver  and New Westminster lists.   He would  ,Iike to know what right the World had  to receive the voters'list for Westminster.   He would also like to know why  the   Colonist  was' charged  with   the  voters' list of Vancouver City. "The  Westminster Neiv's was credited with  the publication   of   the   Westminster  voters' list.    The, Vernon' Netvs was  credited with oyer $500 for advertising,  .and the Vancouver' World also got the  advertising for that part of the coun-,  try.   It really'looked a good deal like  rtllhcirlioir-irv I  Formations Silver Deposits.  The process by which nature forms  her silver de])osits is very interesting.  It mirst be remembered that the earth's  crust is full of waters which percolates  everywhere through the rocks, making,  solutions of elements   obtained from  them.   These chemical solutions take  up   small   particles    of  the    precious  metal, which they find here and there.  Sometimes  the solutions   in question  are hot, the water* having got so far  down as to be set boiling by the internal  heat,of the globe.   Then they  rush upward,   picking up the  bits of  metal   as   they   go.'     Naturally   heat,  assists the performance of this operation. '  Now   and then   the   streams' thus  formed, perpetually flowing hither arid  thither below the ground, puss through  cracks or cavities in   the rocks, where  they deposit their loads of silver.   This  is kept up for/a great length of time���������'  perhaps thousands of years���������until  the  fissure or pocket   is' filled up.   Cran-   '  nies permeating- the., stony mass   in  every direction may become filled with  the precious  metal,   or occasionally lt,  chamber may be stored full of it, as if  a   million   hands. were'   fetching   the  treasure   from   all'sides,   and  hiding  away a future-mine   for some lucky  prospector to discover in' another age.  ���������Pittsburg 'Dispatch.  Coal.and.Oilin the Peace River District.  subsidising  A FEW AWKWARD QUESTIONS.  like to ask why, if they  moon  To Control the -World's Silver Markets.  The Denver smelting men held an  important meeting this week. The  object was to formulate apian towards  uniting the silver mines of the State  with the miners and smelting men of  Mexico and form a syndicate to control  the silver markets of the world. It is  rumored that J. D. Rockfeller and the  Rothschilds are interested in the  scheme;  ', He would  were in such a mood for economy, it  had cost $300 to r;evise the Voters' lists  for Chilliwack.    While W. B. Towns-  end   was   the   collector ������������������ of  votes   for  Westminster,  why.were his services  put down at the rate of $500 as a relief  distributor?  Also S.'A. Cawley, whose  account^ appeared in the name of his  brother-in-law; who; after he had neglected to obtain receipts for his grain,  received payment at the rate of $3 a  day for 15 days for collecting,these receipts.   F. G. Tytler "received $203 for  taking high water levels. ' All he did  was to -sail, around, in a canoe, cut a  notch in a tree and write, "High water  mark in 1894."  He���������further alluded,, to the defeated'  candidate in Delta district (Mr. Punch)  who had received a position ��������� at $150 a  month. He rather thought this was a  sinecure also. This was an example of  what the Government'called economy  in times of depression.  THE SIZE OF MINING CLAIMS.  MR.  HUJITE THINKS   THEM   TOO  LARGE.  Mr. J. F. Hume rose for his maiden  speech without a tremor.   He deplored  the havoc wrought by the floods. , It  was necessary, in order to develop the  mineral resources of the province, to  repair- the roads and trails so damaged.  They had now 15,000 tons of ore awaiting transhipment in his district.   The  leader of  the  Government   last  fall  promised this assistance, and he' believed they might rely upon it.   With  respect to the Mineral Act, he agreed  with Mr. Graham.    The claims were  too large for most of the owners and  prevented the full development of the  mines.   He would like ��������� to see the present dimensions reduced to 000 by 1,500  feet.    He was  glad to see that the  leader of the Government had in view  the early introduction of a Small Debts  Recovery Act, which   he  held to be  very, necessary.   In conclusion he congratulated the leader of the Opposition  on the manner in which he had replied  to   the   mover arid  seconder of  the  Address. *   "  David Reid, a trapper and prospector,  who has spent   years  in  the wilds of  the-province, returned to New Westminster last' week from .Cariboo and  tho   Peace   River  district,   where   he  spent the summer.   Irf perretr liting the  wilds of the Peace' River country he  discovered a flowing wellof petroleum  which  is  wasting 1,000 barrels a! day..  Near at band he found' coal," but "was"  unable to remain  even  a day, on the  spot, owing Ur the ugly disposition of a  party of Indians who.kept on his trail ',  all the time he was there. "  Sydney Lobb formerly in Big Bend.   ���������  a        l       ��������� ������������������  ' At New Westminster ��������� Assizes   last  week Sidney Lobb, accused of, murdering his wife iu'June'last at Nanaimo, .  was acquitted.   The evidence-.for the'  prosecution was purely circumstantial.  The defence produced several witnesses  of unquestionable respectability, who  testified   that   the deceased lady had  spoken to them of suicide. The judge's  charge ^rather favored   the  prisoner.  The  jury   was   out    thirty   minutes,  Lobb is an old  timer here, and was in '  the Big Bend some four or five  ago.  years  Time to Quit the Newspaper Business.  A retiring newspaper man gives this  philosophical reason  for quitting the  business:���������A. child  is born, the'doctor  in attendance gets $10 the editor notes  it and gets 0; it is christened, the 'minister* gets $4. the  editor* writes it up  and gets 00; it marries, the minister  gets another fetytho editor gets a piece  of cake or 000: iii  a course of time it  dies, the doctor gets from $5 to $10,'the  minister gets, another*' $4, the undertaker gets $24 to  $50���������������������������the editor publishes   it' and'receives  0000���������and the  privilege of running free of charge a  card of thanks.  Another Girl Strangled.  Awarded  Highest Honors���������World's  Fair  Lost His Foot Through Another's Folly.  Robert Banville, a news agent on the  B. B. & B. C. Railway was run over by  the Northern Express at Srrrnas last  Friday evening. He. had swung himself on the car steps, when someone  pirlled his coat. His hand slipped, and  in a moment he was under the wheels,  which pawed over bis loft foot crushing  it.into a shapeless mass. He was afterwards taken (o the Vancouver City  Hospital, where the foot, was amputated  by Prs. Robert-on and Johnson.    . ,  MOST PERFECT  MADE.  A pure Grape Cream of Tartar Powder.

Mr.   Kellie  defended   the  amended  Mineral Act, and contended that the  present claim dimensions should not  bo tampered withi   The Opposition, he  said, brought forward no practical suggestions for amelioration, and praised  the Government for the action they  had taken in the matter of the Nakusp  & Slocan Railway.   Another question  he alluded  to was  the   necessity  for  keeping   the   Indians on  tho Colville  reservation    and    advised    that    the  Government should request  the assistance of the Dominion  Government in  this respect.    If tho Government pur-',  sued the policy hitherto applied to the  Kootenay region he  hoped  for much.  The   time was  not far distant when  the   annual    mineral     production   of  Kootenay would amount to $15,000,000  or $25,000,000.   He advised tho Government to pursue an energetic emigration  policy,   as-increased   population  was the great noed of British Columbia.

Ernest Darrow, n 17-year-old boy, of  Patchogue. L.I., was taken  to the insane asylum last Friday.    A few days  ago his mind became unsettled through  worry over his rapid growth.   He is  (1 ft. 4 in. in height and is still growing.'  This strange growth began three years  ago.   He was at that time  not, more  than 4 ft. 0 in. high.    He soon irrew so  big and stout that he had  to be taken  from school.    As his  height incrwuscd,  Darrow became  more  moody and lost  his strength. l  The Railway Brought Into Nelson.

The settlers in Fire Valley have nor,  ���������       petitioned for an appropriation 10 build  a way-m road over the mountains into  East Yale district, as Iras  boon  stater!  in <". Vale newspaper.   They prefer the  , ' much shorter, route to good markets by  way of the Arrow Lake.'''The Jioncst  claims of tiris fertile agricultural dis-  , ' trjet must not.Ire" overlooked when tlie  appropriations are being made, and we  have no'doubt tliat- .Mr1. Kellie will be  an able advocate. We heartily coincide with the Nelson Tribune when it  says :  Messrs. Kellie and Hume���������the valley  '   is in Mr. Kellie/s district���������should work  in unison on this matter. Money should  not be appropriated for a 2-1-uiile road  ' -when the one that is needed would not  , be more than seven miles-long. ''  The- rumor, which circulated around  the town last week���������that Farwell had  lost the case in,the townsite dispute.���������  was the cause of considerable rejoicing  among those who-liold Dominion titles  to their lots, most' of thein  believing,  ,        rightly , or   wrongly,* that'they would  not be recognized byo Farwell; and, in  a the  light  of  sonic  recent  utterances  published  in  a local  paper as coming  from -Mr. Farwell, thev arc  not.  very  far  wrong' in their   belief.    JLJut the  ejtseyisy'nofc- settled---yet, -and --heaven  knows   when  it will  be.    Mr. Mara,  who was here on .Monday, telegraphed,  to Mr. Daly,.Minister of tho Interior,  and received the following reply :  y    f .    .        Ottawa, Nov. 20, 1801.. !

The' following paragraph, which appeared ia last Saturday's J finer, is an  example of the ludicrous figure cut by  W an honest and reliable news item after  travelling around the coast cities for a  couple of weeks:  From Alberni  comes the news that  - $1,000 was taken from a pothole in the  vandal mine on Rock Creek in one day  by F. Vandal and A. T. Beacon.  This is'rich. Tlie '" par. mutilator"  takes in three widely distant point-.- on  which to locate the mine���������Alberni, on  .Vancouver Islandj Rock Creek, in the  Okanagau yauc! tho only Vandall mine  in the province is in Big Betid, North 1  Kootenay. No wonder the Jfintr did  iiot recognize it. All the names are  altered. The original paragraph, which  appeared in the Kootenay Mail of Nov.  3rd, read as follows :  - Reports received this week from the  Vandall mine on French Creek are to  the effect that they have struck it rich  iu a "not hole" from which over ijil.tXJO  was Liken last week, arid is still yielding gold. Four men are working this  claim, which is owned by Frank Vandall and A. L. Beaton.  THE KIND-HEARTED MA*.

Mr. Kitchen, in the debate on Wednesday, complained of having been  abused in an editorial in the Vancouver World, in connection with his  statements relating to the advertising  of the voters' lists, when the mis-statements of which he was accused really  occurred in-the public accounts.   .  Hon. Mr. Davie said it seemed to him  that the hon. member had only himself to blame, having taken advantage  of a quibble, a clerical error apparently  in the book, to make an uncalled for  attack.  Hon. Mr. Turner suggested that in  the future the member should, before  making such wild charges as that the  accounts were* cooked, make inquiry as  to any items which appeared to hiin to  be fit subject.-, for such inquiry. The  vouchers were always at his disposal in  the treasury department.  way on the ledge, and has made several  stopes. Tlie ore in sight is estimated  at 50,000 tons/ There are two-other  veins, apparently-independent of the  main vein, one on each side aud parallel with it, equally as good ore, from  which shipments have heen made this  summer. The Ee Roi mine will have  produced and shipped by the close of  November, during,the season, of 1891,  1,865 tons, and the intention is to ship  at least 25 tons daily during the winter.  The ore goes to the Tacoma smelter at  a total cost, including charges for mining, freight-and smelting, of $21 per  ton ; leaving a net' profit of $20 to $30  per ton, and the ore is improving in  quality. The company lias added to  the hoisting works of last year���������a  .boiler and engine of 100 horse-power  and an air-compressor with a capacity  for ten machine drills, first-class  machinery, and all of Canadian manufacture. They propose to use four  machine drills this winter, which is all  they have room for at piesent. They  arc employing -10 men.  THE WAR EAOLE.  On this mine there is a surface prospect showing a nearly continuous vein  for 800 feet, and a shaft has been sunk  82 feet on a 9-foot vein ; a tunnel' has  heen run about J 50 feet, which struck  the vein under the shaft, aiid which,  much to the gratification of tho men  who have it under bond, maintains its  width and quality. A first shipment  of 29 tons has just beon made. There  are 800 tons on the dump, ami preparations are being made'to send out 2,000  tons the coining winter-. This mine  was only a piospect at tho beginning  of the year, and was bonded for IS  months by Finch, Clark & Co., who  will take, up the bond at once. A few  men have beeu .employed al! summer,  and they are now working 24 men.  They will use two of the LeRoi Co.'s  air drills, by transmitting the power/  about 3,000 feet. I  THE NICCEL   PLATiv.  There have been shipped from the  Nickel Plate 30 tons of high-grade  pyrites, which inns about $7S irr gold.  Small hoisting works and other  machinery of inadequate capacity have  been put on the mine, but disagreement  among partners has caused the shutting down of the mine.  THE JOSIE.  - A 125-foot tunnel has been run on  this property, and a 60-foot shaft sunk.  A shipment, said to.be 350 tons, has  .been made, but.on account of lawsuits  the mine- is closed. It" is expected,"  however,��������� .that a settlement ..will;-be  made, that machinery-will be introduced, -and . work "' prosecuted'-this  winter. *-  ���������THE  CLIFF, " ,  on which four men have worked nearly-  all summer,-has a 12-foot vein, and the  quality of the ore' has improved, but it  is still not high enough, to bear shipment, although it runs $18 to 20 in gold  per ton.  THE O. K.  On the O. K. mine a tunnel of about  150 feet has been run, and an uprise of  50 feet���������some stoping has- also- been  donei ,A 5-ton stamp mill was brought  in and erected in September, and has  been, running steadily since with good  results. '. The ore is ' very refractory,  carrying gold, lead, zinc, copper and  iron ; has considerable free gold, and a-  large proportion of rich sulphides.  Ahout-15 tons were shipped, worth  $375 to the ten. The very refractory  ore of this mine .requires the highest  class of machinery'to insure the best  results.. The vein is 2.J to 3J feet wide,  and 12 men are employed.  THE  I. x. L.  -was put under lease for-18 month's and  a little work is being done with the expectation of finding the Le.Roi vein  running through it, which claim it adjoins.    Four men are employed.  *  , About two .miles from the Le Roi,  across and on the west side of''Sheep  Creek, a new discovery has been -made  this season, named "Gold Hill." Ten  ton's of ore have been packed out and  shipped. The vein is 9 to 10 feet wide,  and the owners have sunk 50 feet.  Tlie ore is said to be " $100 gold rock."  A new group of silver claims, about  four miles west of Trail,- has been  found. Little work has been done on  them yet, but it- is the intention to  make shipments this winter, as the ore  is high grade. The vein is 7 feet wide,  and the ore runs 178 ounces per ton.  The mines thus far described are the  only ones which are at present producing ore. There is much other work,  however, being done by the> holders of  claims in keeping up their assessments.  There has also been a great deal of  prospecting done, 09 claims having  heen located or re-located thus far this  season.  ��������� A smart town called Rossland has  sprung up within half a mile of the Le  Roi mine, where three hotels have been  opened and three stores established,  with a population, including the miners  of the camp, of perhaps 150 people. The  Le Roi Mining Co. is now building a  large hotel at Rossland.  Pour1 teams of four horses each are  regularly hauling ore from the mines  to Trail, and when sleighs can he used  two-horse teams will do equally as  much, thus doubling their capacity.  The effort will be made to ship out  5,000 tons of ore this winter, which will  make necessary a largely increased  force of miners, as well as means for  transporting the ore to the river.  The steamer lllecillewaet is now at  Trail, and will  he used to carry ore to <  Northport, 22 niiles, making  three or  four trips a week, arrd as soon as facilities for transferring from boat to ;::d\s  Tenders fop a License to Gut Ttmbav  ' on Dominion Lands, In tbe Prov&aeo  of Bpltlah Columbia.

The distance to  Waneta is 11 miles, and the capacity of  the steamer 30 to 40 tons.-    -  It-appears that' the Spokane & Northern Kail way refuses to make the ne- l  cessary transfer track at Waneta, and  the steamboat company will therefore  put it in at their own expense.1  This  railway, it is .supposed, would like to,'  force the transportation of the ore over ,  the wagon road lately built from the "  mines down Sheep Creek to the boundary,  ahout six miles, and  ahout ten  miles further across the Colville Indian  reservation to Northport.    If this cau  be done the ore wUI not come to the  river on  the Canadian side, and  the  Spokane & Northern will haw the carrying of the ores of the Trail Creek  mines altogether under its control, no  Canadian transportation line or smelting company deriving any benefit from  them.  - Is it not the true policy of these  mine owners to continue to do business  by way of Trail, thus stimulating competition and consequently lower rates  of freight? If they place themselves  in the power of one company, and chat  a-rail way, will they not soon realize  .the truth of the remark so often made  hi relation to high freights���������that their  ores must pay fcrr transportation " all  that they will bear?"  It is probable that the output of the  Trail Creek mines will soon exceed the  capacity of all present means of freighting to the river. That which will, however, settle the question of all outward  methods of transportation, and is now  seen to be an absolute necessity for  the camp, is the establishment of a'  smelter either at Trail or Itossland:  Trail Creek is ri camp of low grade  ores,-which win only be of value to the  owners when they are smelted at home.  The cosjt of transportation to a distant  point is more than they are worth.  The location of the smelter will therefore be determined by a comparison of  the advantages or disadvantages of a  site at Trail or* at Itossland. It is a  question of dollars and cents ns are,  and should be, all questions of business.  Will not other ores for fluxing lie  needed that can Im* obtained moie conveniently and cheaply on the river, to  whose waters as a rig'hi of way no one  has an exclusive, right, hut which are  the common property of nil who see  lit to use them, rather than by a railway corporation which owns the sole  means of egress and ingress? In short,  on which side, river or inland, will the  balance of profit or loss, incline the  scales? In this connection an air or  wire-rope tramway which would carrv  the ores from the mines to the river bv  the' principle of gravitation, should  have due consideration.

No matter how  unfortunate tho Chinese may be in the  war with Japan, the Japanese cannon  and rifles can never claim as many victims as this demon, which ia as old as  Ciiina itself. Tho Chinese may fear  'foreign enemies at times, but they dread,  their demon ;always. It is always present.  This demon is a river, which, fortunately for tho human race, has not its  like on earth. It is known in China as  the Hoang 110 or Hwang ho, but' Europeans usually call it the Yellow river,  owing to its very muddy 'waters.  Tho Iloang-IIo is onetof iho lug rivers  of the world, belonging in that select  ciiclc of rivers composed of tho Aina-  toii, the ili-isissippi, the Nile, the .Congo, etc. Uut its bigness is not iti chief  characteristic. It. has another quality  which turn's it into China's demon and  makes it cut holcs-iu Chinas enormous  population. ' ,  The Yellow river is a fickle stream. It  changes, ils be1 with tho same easo that  u man changes his clothos, nnd, v/hon- it  seeks a new course tlioro are fowor  mouths to food in China. I3y Booking a  now bed it is not meant that tho Yollow  river runs a mile or two away from its  old channel, as the lower Jlississippi  sometimc-s does. ' It explores regions entirely now, for this extraordinary livor  in 2,500 years has emptied itself into the  ������ea by nine different months, and f woof  these have boon ua much as S30 niiles  apart. i , ',  JNow you   want   to   know why this  river, even if it does make wide changes  in its courso. is called   China's   Demon.  Just imagine that all this   country bo-  twoen Now York andJSTorfolk, says the  New York   World,   and   extending far  back into tho interior, is alovel plain full  of cities, town's' and' villages   far more  densely populated than nrry State :n the-  .Unioii. ovon swarming with population  to a greater extent   than   the* plains of  Belgium.    All these millions   and   millions of human  beirisjs   are  prosperous  and aro busy with their ordinary duties.  But the Epiing rains back in the mountains havo been unusually heavy.    Nobody pays any special   attention,  however.' ��������� ���������      ' ( _      '  ' By and by tho   mighty river which  flows acro.-s this thickly populated plain  begins to get a little muddier and a little., yellower   than,, usual.    The water  grows deeper and tho current swifter.  Still nobody is much alarmed, for if tlio  river rises too1 high they can easily move  b ick out of tho way.     , u  But away buck a thousand niiles in  tho inferior,, whoro the ' waters of tho  river flow down from tho tuounUinand  enter the plain, there is a curve in the  channel. Tho swollen torrent, as it  swishes around the curve,'beats against  the bank. Under tho impact of tho  great volume of water the bank caves  away. Day and night huge cakes ot  earth aro dropping down, and the protecting bank rapidly grows smaller. The  water ru.iiingdown from the mountains  boar on it perpetually.  Some night, with a crash, -the last of  the bank falls in. Tho whole river deserts the old channel, pours into tho  new, and off it goes at a great angle  from its former course, sweeping across  the plain, a boiling, railing, irresistible,  'muddy torrent, beating down everything iu its course,' carrying away villages and towns and rushing on to the  sea. its uide torrent covered with  houses, human bodies -arid the other  wreo: of va swarming population.  Jnst im iirirre, if you can, such a thing  as this happening iu our own country,  end you wiil comprehend the Demon of  China. Tiie Chinese call it -'The Sorrow uf Han." The number Of people it  has druwne-1 in its changes of course is  almost incredible.
