The principal obj-'ct of the convention of mining men of British  Columbia, which will meet in Nel-  win December 15, will bo the discussion of the practicability of  building up a zinc smelting industry in British Columbia and to  remove tho necessity  smellers of tau United States.  At present whatever zinc ore is  produced iu (lie iiit"rior of Uritish  Columbia is smelted in tho United  .State?'. This on account of duty  and freight is an e.\'[-onsivc operation.  Another point whicli will fiar*  lieiil'irly nltccls tlio United State.-' is  in connection with tho market for  for using the  zinc. At present practically all the  zinc'produced in Canada finds a  market in the United'States, but it  is now proposed "to foster the manufacture of zinc in Canada so as to  render the Canadian'zinc miner independent of the United States  market, in which he can only compete under the handicap that the  duty imposes. *  Still another aspect of the situation is the demand on the part of  tho Canadian zinc industry for a  high tariff on the zinc products of  the United States. The United  Slates zinc manufacturers now  have a practical monopoly of the  Canadian market for tho output of  the industries that it is proposed  to establish in Canada. "  The ores of the interior of British Columbia are rich in zine, and  io is hoped to promote an extensive  mining and manufacturing industry which will be of vast import  aiico to the progress of the interior  of British Columbia. It is known  that both the provincial and Dominion governments are impressed  with the importance of the subject  (Mid that they are likely to follow  thesoggestions of the  convention.  Thd gathering will take place at  the instigation of the Ni-lson board  of trade, and thc following matters will be discussed at the meet-  inn- ���������  1. The pstablishmen** of ,a zinc  smplter in this country.  2. The establishment of home  manufactories of zinc products  3. The asking.for  aid for assistance in  experiments.  4. The asking for a bounty on  zinc similar to that at present in  force for lead.  5. The asking for the increase  of tho duty on zinc ore products,  such as spelter, oxides, etc., which  now come into this country, principally from the United States, either  free of duty or at a low tariff.  government  Methodist Bazaar ou Dec. 14th  at McEae's old staud.

Bunbury arrested a bad Indian  named Sam Pierre near Penticton,  who is wanted across the line  for breaking jail. Tho Oroville.  Gazette says the following about  this bad redskin :  As illustrating the willingness  of Pierre to take desperate chances  Oisicer Bunbury states that at  Okanagau Falls he slept iu the  same room with the Indian, who  was of course manacled. When  they went to the room Pierre laid  down.on one of the beds, and the  olYiccr who had removed his revolver, threw his belt and 'scabbard on the foot of the other bed  and his coat over them. Bunbury  then turned to the dresser as  though to make his toilet, and  could observe Pierre's movements  in ..the looking-glass. No sooner  was tho officer's back turned than  with the noiseless, snake-like movements "traditional with Indians,  Pierre raised up and reached over  for tho belt, supposing the revolver to be in tho sheath. As his  band touched the belt Bunbury let  out a gay haw, haw, and the foiled  Indian fell back with a curse. Had  thc. gun been there and the Indian  got hold of it, the friends of Bunbury would be wearing weeds today.  The dining room of the Rossland  hotel has been reopened.

Then the  young lawyer got at him.  "What's youi   name?"  bellowed the  exponent of Blackstone.  "Bill," was the quiet response.  -"Bill-what?"  ,"Bill Watt," repeated the boy.  "Now, see here, young man. don't get  new.    1  want your name, and quick  too.   Again, what Is It?"  "Bill Watt-Watt-Watt-Watt-that  Is it.

"Now, BUI Walt, pay strict attention  to the question I'm going to ask you.  Listen! Isn't It true that you have  sometimes been called a prevaricator?".-  "Come again!" was the reply. "I  didn't get in right on that."  "A prevaricator, one'* who tells fibs.  You know what fibs are, don't you?"  explained the attorney.  "Well, I guess I'm not one of thoso  prevaricator things���������uot by a long  shot! You've got the wrong child, old  scout," saucily remarked the red head,  "Very well," replied the lawyer.

Quaint Ceremonies  When  the  Grain  Is Garnered. <  In many places there are curious  and quaint customs connected with  the gathering in of harvest. They all  boar a certain resemblance to eacii  other, but have different designations.  ..'���������When   the   last   shock   of.   corn   on  the farm has been cut in Devonshire,  a cry is heard from one of the reapers:  "I've gotten it!"  "What hast tha' gotten?" shout the  others.  "I've gotten the neck!" yells the  first.  As the reaping has been ^rapidly  nearing its completion, the oldest laborer goes round the field picking the  best ears of corn he sees in each  sheaf. These he ties together, and  intricately plaits into a sort of broom,  topped with the ears. This is called  the "neck," or "knack," and when  tlie cutting of the last corn is heralded with the shout, "I've gotten  it!'"- the reapers gather together, and  stand in a circle round the man holding the "neck." He stoops to the  stubble with it, and the ring .of reapers, holding their hats in both hands,  likewise bend to the ground. Rising  upright, and stretching their arms  and hats above their heads, they  slowly chant, in harmony, "The neck"  three times..,,Then they burst into  triumphant shouts, "We have 'unV  We have 'un! We have 'un!" Round  goes the cider-pitcher, and, with acclamations, the plaited neck of corn  is escorted to the farmhouse.  There it is delivered to the farmer,  with the chorus, "A neck, a neck, a  neck! Well cut, well bound, well  shocked!" The little bundle of corn  is hung from the kitchen ceiling, and  remains there until displaced by the  "neck" of the next harvest. To lose  or part with this "neck" is to invite  misfortune  and disaster.  In Cornwall the last sheaf of corn  is also called thc "neck," and is  decorated  gaily  with  blue ribbons.  In Yorkshire, where the clergyman  is still often called upon to cut the  first corn "of the harvest, the last  sheaf is. simply called "the kern."  Its fall before the sickle is proclaimed  by shouts of ."We've gotten it!" And  the reapers escort the kern home. It  is dressed in a white frock, with colored ribbons, and crowned with  wheat-ears. At the kern supper whicli  follows, this kern baby is enthroned  in the barn, and supposed to preside  overthe feast. The well-known harvest supper comes later, to mark the  end of the gathering-in, and is called  the "mell   supper."  The really interesting customs are  those which attend the cutting of the  last sheaf. It symbolizes the corn  god; and, though its original meaning  has been forgotten, it is celebrated  in various parts of the country.  CHILDHOOD   AILMENTS.

Crime In  Ireland.  What Ireland is like under Radical  rule is clearly shown by the criminal  statistics for 1������03, which have just  been published as a Bluebook. Indictable offences for the whole of Ireland, which numbered 9,465 in 1906,  ���������leclined to 9,418 in the year 1907,  but rose last year to 10,266. This  represents an increase of 8.5 per cent,  as compared with 1906, and of 9 per  cent, as compared with 1907. The  rate represented by the above offences  was 2.3 per 1,000 of the estimated  population. The number of persons  proceeded against for non-indictable  offences was 31,697 more than in the  year 1907 and 9,213 above the average  for the ten  years  1898-1907.  The numbers of cases of drunkenness in 1908 is less than the number  in 1907 by 2,5!II2, and if the figures for  drunkenness in 1908 are compared  with the average number of such  cases in the 10 years 1893-1907, it appears that a decrease amounting to  12,841 has occurred.

Major George Graham, retired army  oflicer, had: been a widower for ten  years. His daughter Nellie was nineteen years.old.   . '  The major realized that he was  growing old,- but when It came to the  jJaughter he continued to regard her  as a child. Even when she got Into  long, dresses he would not have been  a* bit surprised to find her walking the  fence with a balancing pole oi seated  .��������� on the limb of a cherry tree. She hail  been away at school; she had returned;  he knew that she went to parties, and  ho saw young men'about the house,  but he seemed to be In a dream about  her age. Iu bis thoughts she had not  paxwr-d the rag doll stage yet.  Major Graham was enjoying his  'Clgur on the veranda one evening and  listening to Nellie's chatter In an ab-  Btraled way when that young woman  made a Budden diVe Into the house and  a young man came up the path and  took the vacated chair. ��������� The ��������� major  equlnted at h!m aud thought he recognized him as young Durlburt.  A young man's name may be much  or little to the father of the girl he is  lu love with. In this ease it meant  little until an eiplanatlon- had been  entered Into. .Then it meant a whole  lot. Young .Mr. Ilurlburt loved Miss  Nellie; Miss Nellie loved him. He was  of good family and had some prospects; he knew.she was an only child  and realized how hard Jt would be for  the father to give her up. but he would  love, protect and cherish her always.  The major was so shocked that In his  excitement he'threw away n cigar that  had been only half consumed, a thing  he had not done In battle with the  guns roaring around him.  Just what the man, of war said to the  young man of peace need not be recorded here. The gist of It was that  his daughter was still a child, young  Hurlburt was only a ���������'kid" and that  he should put his foot down against  any nonsense. Yes. sir. It must be  stopped. Yes, sir. he would tell his  daughter so. Yes,'sir. and-aud���������and  bo forth. And the young man took his  departure a human wreck, and Miss  Nellie, who, of course, had heard all  ' from an open window, sought out her  good aunt and buried her face in the  lap of that Individual and moaned out:  "Oh,.Aunt Mary, I shall die���������I know"  I shall .die!.'.

She gave /What comfort and sympathy she could, and after seeing the  ������������������weeping /".child" tucked into bed she  nought the father* in an attempt tot  Boften his heart.  The major was wanting some one to  talk to just then, and she got all ihat  *was coming to her. She had been remiss, she had been careless, she had  neglected her duties as a chaperon, she  had almost brought a calamity upon  the house of Graham. With her eyes  wide open she had allowed a mere !  Infant���������yes. mu'nni, an infant���������to fall  lu love and engage herself in marriage  - to���������to���������well, to a-young, man.  In vain Aunt Mary tried to exculpate  herself. No oue had ever talked back  to Major Graham. U. S. A., and got  the best of It, and she failed. He  could utter twenty words to her five,  and the odds were too great, even for  a woman's tongue. She retired from  the contest to say/to the tearful maiden  in waiting:  "If your father doesn't get over this  'and talk seuse I'll���������I'll"���������  - "You'll do something, Aunty?"  "1 don't know what I'll do. but you  ���������wait. Here you are, nineteen years  old. aud he's talking as If you were  not out of bibs and high chairs."  There was hope that if Aunt Mary  went around with -a serious look on  ,.hcr face and had little to say and that  if the daughter went about with tears  in her eyes aud heaved heartbreaking  sighs at intervals the major might  come down off his high horse, but  after three days of it he seemed more  determined than ever, .finally, at the  end of a week, the sister said:  "George. If that girl elopes to get  married you will have only yourself  to blame."  "So children have taken to eloping,  eh!" be replied In cutting tones.  That ulght there was a meeting of  conspirators in Miss Nellie's room.  There were only two conspirators, but  they were enough. The major was  asleep and dreaming of battle as they  planned. There were no more tears,  no more sighs. Next morning a little  note was sent to youug Ilurlburt.  That night he disappeared off the face  of tho earth.  That night also good Aunt Mary  was engaged for two hours carrying  bundles and other things up Into tbe  'attic, and when morning dawned again  another suddeii shock was ready for  Major George Graham, retired. He  was eating his breakfast when bis sister entered tbe dining room to announce that Nellie's bed had not been  occupied during tbe night. The exclamation made by tbe major when a  bullet killed bis horse was repeated  on this occasion, aud a minute latel  be was upstairs.  "1 predicted It!" observed the sister  ts she followed at his heels.  ���������'Lopl* for a note," he replied.   "  "I have looked. Tho poor child left  none.

The  major was sorry that he hud bluffed  as he had. ** The sister, took care to  keep telling him what a cruel father  he was and how much Nellie must  have suffered before taking the step  she had, and by evening of the second  day the old war hero was calling himself names. ���������,' -  The scene was the veranda again.  The major was smoking and sighing  when young Hurlburt ^suddenly appeared. He was not shot down In his  tracks. He was not even taken by the  throat.  "Major, I understand you were In  quiring for me the other day," be  quietly remarked.  "Yes, sir; yes, sir. Where ls my  daughter, sir?"  "The last time I saw her was here  at-your house."  "And you tell me���������you mean that she  and you did not elope!"  "Elope! Major Graham, do you  think' I would coax your daughter into  such a thing?"  -,  "But she Is gone. Whom did she go  with?"    Where is she?"  "I cannot tell you. 1 was off camping."  "Mr. Hurlburt, I refused you my  daughter's hand, but at the same time  I believed you an honorable young  man."  "I believe I am, sir."  "And/your daughter would do nothing to dishonor herself or her dear old  daddy!" said MIssNellle us she suddenly appeared and sank down at her  father's knee.  "You���������you back again!" he gasped.  "Why, I've not been away. I got  tired of my room and moved up into  the attic for a change. It's just lovely  up there, only the mice made me afraid  nights. You didn't' think your Nellie  would run away just because you were  a little cross, did you ?"  "See here. I don't understand this a  bit," said the major as he recovered  his senses.  And then came the last shock. His  sister came forward and said:  "Why, brother. It's easy enough to  understand. They' are in love with  each other and want your consent to  their "marriage."  The major wouldn't have been the  I major If he had given them his blessing then and there, but the records  show   that  he did   within   the ; next  month, and that was good enough.

THE SPECIAL WRITER.  An Anecdote of Verdi.  The first production of Verdi's opera  ,"Othello" took place at Milan, and all  the prominent musical critics of Europe foregathered in the Cathedral  City in honor of the occasion. Among  them was a Parisian Journalist of wide  reputation and admitted authority in  the musical world. His first care on  his arrival In Milan was to seek out  Verdi and ask to be allowed,.to be  present at one of the final rehearsals  The composer received him with extreme politeness, but replied that he  could not possibly grant his request,  as h������ had decided that the rehearsals  were to be absolutely private, and he  could not make an exception in the  favor of any one journalist, however  distinguished. .  * The Paris critic, far from pleased at  this answer, protested that in these  circumstances his account,of the opera  might not be nil he should like it to  be. "You see." he explained to the  composer, who affected not quite to  understand, "I shall have to telegraph  my article the same evening. It will  necessarily be hastily written, and the  impression iu Paris the next day may  suffer In consequence."  But Verdi was moro than equal to  the occasion.  "My dear sir," he made,  answer, "Iado not write for 'the next  day."' The^eritic bowed himself out.  Gleanings and Gossip  The Russian czar rules over 160,000,-  000 persons.  One aeroplane factory of Paris employs 52 persons.  The meeting of the British association in 1913 will in all probability be  held in Australia. The effort is being  mack, by he officials of the university  of Melbourne, who are now in corres  pondence with the various educational  and scientific bodies of the southern  continent.  Nuremberg is the centre of the toy  trade of the world. More than half  the employes in the toy factories are  women and girls. The wages of the  female toymakers are about.five cents  an hour. Of the estimated German  top output of $25,000,000 a year, about  $19,000,000 is exported, more, than  half going to Great Britain and the  United States..  A Berlin museum has recently acquired .a very valuable manuscript  which originated in the second century  73. C. It seems to be of the nature of a  biographical dictionary, for it contains  a list of the leading men of the time  in art, statesmanship and warfare  with much other general information  of a similar nature. The paper was  found in the wrappings of a mummy.  ne has not by any'means been con-  fiiwd ;"fo those of his own religious  com ni union*' The possessor of one'of  the biggest hearts that was ever put  'ntn a man, of the most delightful  ���������ind winning brogue that was ever  given to an Irishman, and;of an exceptionally witty tongue, his company  was welcome wherever he went.  Anecdotes by the score have been  related of him, gome of them true  and some of them false, and anum-  ber, of them of course have found  their way into this journal. Probably  the best of them, which was published two or three years ago, and which  is worth repeating, was the famous  retort he made to a 'certain prelate  "who rebuked him for being so fond  of horses, saying that his mind should  be more (placed upon spiritual matters.' They were driving along the  road, and presently a comely young  woman parishioner curtesied to them.  "A' very fine-looking young woman," con'metited the prelate, "Every  man to his taste," replied the dean  quick, as a shot; "I prefer horseflesh."  When he lived, at Richmond Hill  twenty years ago and was compelled  to drive a great deal his love of horseflesh was famous. He always had a  trotter that could give the dust to  most of those encountered on the  road, and in winter time when speeding was good on upper Yonge street  ft was his delight to try it out with  the crack trotters from Toronto, whose  own irs-'.'loved in this fashion to wile  away a winter's afternoon. On the  other hand, he was a parish priest  in the truest sense of the word, 'especially in his handling of the types of  rough, ignorant,' and contentious peo-  'ple with whom he had to deal. He  looked after their financial affairs for  them, protected them from those who  would prey on their credulity, and altogether proved himself in a very  real sense a friend and adviser as  well as  a  spiritual  guardian.  DEAD AT AGE OF 124.  Soup Without a Spoon.  Soup without a spoon seems even  harder to negotiate than meat without  a fork, and we can sympathize with  the complaint recorded in the diary of  Felix Platter, a young Swiss, who went  to Montpelller in 1552 in order to study  medicine. He lodged in the house of  bis professor, Catelan, one of the  -greatest doctors of his time, and yet,  writes Platter, "we were compelled to  eat our stew in the usual French fash-  Ion���������that Is to say, picking the meat  out with our fingers and then drinking  the broth. In vain we begged our  hostess to let us have spoons, but not  a single one was to be found In the  house, tbe only implement on the table  being a large knife fastened with an  Iron cbOjin. No one here seems to have  ever heard of spoons, which we at  home flnd so useful." Montaigne was  astonished when he visited Switzerland in 1580 to find that "at all meals  they put on the table as many spoons  as there are people present-.'���������West*  minster Gazette.

Not long ago she .came running to  her father.  "Papa, papa, George called me  names."  "Why, what did George say?"

And in his  death Owen Sound loses one of its  best known figures. A man of giant  frame and strength; consistent with  his size, he was a conspicuous figure,  whether on the streets, or in his boat  sailing up the river.' But of late, the  old man had been failing. His big  frame grew gaunt, his step .slow.  About 'a month' ago, while cutting  wood, he gashed his foot with the  axe. His system, enfeebled by age,  ���������was not able to withstand the shock.  According to his own" story, he was  born in 1785, and was therefore 124  years old. His mother was a' squaw,  his father a Frenchman. The first  three years of Joe's life was spent  amid Indian surroundings; then his  parents came to this locality and settled near the point where his cabin  now stands. " His early years were  spent here; but the "wanderlust" of  his Indian ancestors asserted itself,  and for years he traveled, visiting  many places in Canada and the Republic to the south. His wanderings  over, he returned and spent. the rest  of his days here, fishing and hunting and trapping until "game became  too scarce.  On one occasion, it is said, he went  to' buy a barrel of salt for his fish.  The merchant jocularly said, "Joe,  you can have a barrel if you'll  shoulder it." "All right!" growled  Joe; and stooping, he caught the  barrel by the chines, and with a  mighty heave hoisted it over his  head and, set it across his broad  shoulders.' Then, grinning at the  discomfited merchant, 'he walked off,  carrying the barrel. When one looked at, the man, a year or'so ago���������six  feet four inches tall, and broad" in  proportion���������the story was easy to  believe:  Joe was a great boxer and wrestler,  but with all his strength, and all his  love for game, he was never quarrelsome. He was always considered one  of Owen Sound's most peaceable and  law-abiding citizens.���������Owen Sound  Sun...:-,'..'... ���������._:...'������������������         A Quebec Custom.  The custom of placing a green  bough on the roof of a newly-built  house is not confined to Germany,  but was adopted by the French-Canadians, who brought it with them from  Brittany.  The custom was originated from the  superstition "prevalent centuries ago  that every tree is inhabited by a  spirit. Consequently, it was believed  . that every time a tree was felled another spirit was dispossessed, and  this was supposed to cause some bitterness on his part against society.  Rather than risk having these  homeless and disgruntled spirits vent  their ill-feeling upon the houses under construction or upon thc builders,  says Van Norden's Magazine, a  branch was planted on the highest  part of the house for their occupancy.  They were then supposed to be mollified, and if they remained so until  the roof was put on any evil design  contemplated would prove harmless,  for the spell would be broken.  Canada's Fine Cheese.

Mrs. George Aldridge, 12 Louise St.,  Stratford, says���������"While*.playing barefooted about the yard my son Bertram, 6 years old, stepped on a broken glass bottle, which cut very deeply into his big toe. The cut was so  deep that I sent for a doctor and had  the foot properly dressed, the doctor  leaving a lotion to be applied daily.  Under this treatment,- however, the  wound seemed to get no better but on  the contrary, inflammation: set in. A  kindly neighbor then recommended  Zam-Buk. We obtained a supply, and  after a few applications the child  seemed to rest better, and the pain  was very much reduced: In a few  days, under the Zam-Buk treatment  the wound assumed a better appearance, and from that, time healing  was very rapid. Inflammation and  soroness were finally completely banished, and in ton days from the first  application of Zam-Buk, we took the  bandages from the foot. I feel sure  that but for Zam-Buk the child would  have had a very bad time, and might  have had to sacrifice the toe."

Dysentery corrodes the intestines  and, speedily eats away the lining,  bringing about dangerous conditions  that may cause death. Dr. J. D. Kel-  logg's Dysentery Cordial clears the intestinal canals of the.germs that cause  the inflammation, and by protecting  the lining from further ravages restores  them to healthy condition. Those subject to dysentery should not be without this simple yet powerful remedy.  Havana has 400 different kinds of  food fish, while England all around  has only 50 sorts of food fish.  Arthur   E.   McFarlane   Has  Achieved  Fame In U.S.  In these highly developed days the  writer of a special article is expected to put fancy as well as the real  ' facts into his material. He is expected to be epigrammatic, to put  life blood into his stuff, to,make his  readers sit up and laugh here and  there all through the article and,  then take it seriously in the end.  That's what Arthur E. McFarlane,  the well-known young Canadian  magazine /writer does. If he didn't  deliver the goods he would not have  so many of his articles accepted and  highly paid for by big publications.  For it takes time to work up the  material for a special article these  days, and time means money. And  the fact that any one of . a dozen'  leading editors is-ready to say,-"McFarlane, spend the time and money  necessary to get wise on this question, and let us have what you think  it's worth"���������this fact means that McFarlane can  deliver the goods.  Some time ago he made a contract  with -a certain journal to write;something about: Barnum and Bailey's  circus. He didn't simply, go to the  circus and write'a page or two about  it offhand. He traveled with the  show for two or three weeks; stood  in the ticket-seller's cage and kept  his eye peeled for incidents;, dressed  as'ii clown und helped in a turn; and  learned pretty nearly everything  there was to learn about the humorous and serious sides of running a  big circus. That's the way special  articles are worked up these days,  and that is one reason why their  prepartion is somewhat more arduous but also more profitable than  short-story writing.  Naturally Mr. McFarlane, sojourning with strange folk here and there  to learn their habits and language,  has accumulated a large fund of good  stories. One that he told' the other  day to some friends seems timely  just now when so much is being  heard from suffragettes on the lack  of consideration accorded women by  the world. Mr. McFarlane and  Arthur Stringer roomed together for  a time.when they made their first  attack ' on literary New York. In  those anti-prosperity days, the young  men lived frugally in unaesthetic  surroundings, their window looking  out on a prospect somewhat resembling the famous street scene in  "Salvation Nell." They were amused  as weir as distracted by many strange  noises, vbut from the cramped domicile of a certain family near by arose  every night sounds of discord and  strife that came to be distinctive and  of compelling interest. One night in  this- disturbed and disturbing home  a row-ensued that made all,previous  rackets there seem as the cooing of  doves. All over the court windows  flew open, that of McFarlane and  Stringer among them. From what  could be heard it seemed that murder was beingidone. They were just  about to dash off, thinking to rescue  a woman-from the hands of a brutal,  besotted husband, when suddenly an  excited little urchin rushed out of a  doonvay, and yelled to a group of  night hawks assembled on the pavement :  "Come on up quick, youse; me  mudder's killin' me fadder." ���������"  Then the windows were all slammed down and interest in the episode  suddenly faded.

The hotel at Wainwright, one of  the new divisional points of the  Grand Trunk Pacific and one of the  new towns along that line which are  booming at present, was noCbuilt originally at Wainwright, but at a  point called Denwood, some three  miles and a half east. When the line  was going through and the new towns  were being projected, the proprietor of  the hotel got What he thought was a  sure tip that a spot on the prairie  called Denwood was to be the divisional point.

As he had to  drive the lumber for his first hotel  tome 32 miles over the prairie, he  certainly deserves some modicum of  success.  Exploration Ethics  That ethics might play a part in  polar explorations probably was not  dreamed of in the earlier days of the  art, science, or whatever it may be  called, It now seems possible^ however, that in future the would-be discoverer of poles and the like will be  compelled to take a course in polar  ethics before lie can secure .his license. According to the statement of  one of the physicians who accompanied a former expedition1 poleward, if  the newspaper accounts may be relied  upon, Dr. Cook, even if he did discover the north pole, ought to be  disciplined for "violating the ethics of  polar expeditions" by using a portion  of the route: which another discoverer  had laid out.���������New York Tribune.
