MINING NOTES.  From our Exchanges.  Twelve'year's ago Moody's -farna",- now  the sue of Johannesburg, was ollered to  IJuron Grant lor $250,000. His expert  however made an adverse report and the  matter dropped. It is held uow at a  thousand million dollars.  Iu "1895 there were 901 mining companies registered iu England with au  aggregate capital of S536,lJ3-,S*05.  Under the Transvaal law any person  guilty of rising or rebelling agaiust the  government forfeits all his mining rights.  This is what may happen, to members ot  the reform committee both English and  Americans who were arrested iu Johaii;  uesburg. As most of these men are  holders of the richest properties in the  !.-lauil their trial will cause great excitement.

A Chinee at This Important Smelting Voint  on tlie Columbia.  The look of pained astonishment on  the faces ot the several thousand people  whose remark "You kuow the Trail Creek  country ot course;-'", only produced a reluctant negative, may be held directly  responsible for this letter. Th.it look  grew in intensity. It haunted me. I  turned and fled. Happy day. A ringing  "yes" cau now supplant the faltering  "uo", aud a paternal "ask-away-I-know-  all-about-it" air is mine own.  Your correspondent found himself the  other day tripping down the bank to go  on board the little Illeeillewaet for a run  to Trail Creek. Out into-the stream  swung the sturdy little craft aud the rush  of tbe rapids shoots us dowu like a big  toboggan.' On either side the ranges  rise from, the cool gray shadows of the  wooded shores to the sparkling, sun  bathed,, summits. We have our stride  now and faster and faster swing down  the current. Every turn of the winding  river reveals some new and picturesque  combination of fir clad slopes, time riven  crags and snow clad ranges agaiust the  blue beyond. It is wii h a ' feeliug of  disappointment at pleasures so'' soon  past tbat we round the last bend and  run in under the steep bank.  "Yes sir, this is Trail.Creek. Can't you  see the Dig smelter on the hillJ yonder?"  and here we are.  Trail Creek country and the towns of  Trail and Bosslaud have been so often  described- that details are unnecessary.  Your correspondent will therefore confine himself rather to impressions than  descriptions. As the natural river outlet1  for the surrounding region, the town of  Trail is now and always will continue to  be one of the best poinls in tbe district.  This verdict har been rendered by those  who should know aud the present trip is  nrsearoh of reasons.  Even its most enthusiastic admirers  are forced to admit that the townsite is  rather rough aud broken, but enough  good gouud exists for all" busiu ess purposes. As for the remainder, the place  has the usual rugged attractiveness ot  the Kooteuay with, the added beauty of  ihe river and the Trail Creek canyon.  When one'- remembers that a t^v  months ago this town consisted of ti  hotel, a restaurant and a grocery store,  theu stepping from tbe boat is con-  frouted by from fifty to sixty places of,  busiuess from bauk to meatmarket, sawmills, stores; restaurants, hotels, newspaper/customs house, brewery, bonded  warehouse and so on through the list,  one becomes simply a walking interrogation point. Tbe answer is up youder on  the hill above the towu. Let us go. and  take-a-look atifc.       ��������� . -----    ~     '���������'  Mr. F. Aug. Heinze, the Butte smelting  capitalist, secured a contract from the  Le Koi and other properties at liosslaud,  tor about 75,000 tons ot ore. He then  proceeded to' the details of his little plan  which includes a smelter, a railroad and  a few other trifles.  Standiug ou the edge of a bluff of the  Columbia river, aud some 100 feet above  the level of the town, are the smelter  buildings. Through the kindness of the  foreman G. C. Munro, your correspondent was shown (-through ihe -works,  and something of their purposes explained at length.  Beginning with the roomy office buildings we pass down the hill. Here are  tbe ore bins, twelve in number, holding  100 tons each. The ore runs through  the usual processes from bin to breaker  to the rolls of the sampler, then to the  big rolls, iuto the bins, roasters for'cal-  cining  and  tbe. matting furnace. The  two 14x00 tubular boilers in the power  buildiug are as yet ample for the rope  transmission, but may be added to in the  NEWS OF  THE   WORLD.  of this high grade ore have been  THE WKATlLKtt.  ��������� The Iweek. opened with some sharp  frost*-, but on Wednesday ii chiiiook  set in It continued on Thursday  with warm winds and rain and lasted  over yesterday.

In a busy wotk-a-day conntry like  British Columbia it might be supposed  that books were tit a discount and that  no one hud auy time lo read anything  except the local newspapers. This is not  the case. Books of all kinds are eagerly  bought aud "eagerly read, aud as far as  light literature is concerned oue is just  as hkely to find the latest novel iu a  miner's "cabinin Kooteuay as iu a London  drawing room. We did actually thus iind-  Dodo iu a Kootenay cabiu at a time when  it was hot from "the press in Euglaud.  But though -we British Columbians are  ready to read anything, few ol us have  time to write, but we have.one or two  authors amongst ns ..whose uames are  already well known.  Phillipps-Wolley  Ot these Mr. Clive   li _      is   easily     the   first'.  tlis latest book "The Queeusbeiry Cup"  (London. Methuen & Co.) will certainly  inciease his popularity. It. is essentially  a book for boys, but grown meu may-  read it too aud be all the, better for it.  The story deals with the adventures of  two .English lads from their school days  to  the   destruction of  Wilsons gallant      band in South Africa.   The whole book | j-'j^'g ei"-ht  future. The plant proper consists of oue  50 ton blast furnace, two O' Hara calcin-  crs of GO tons capacity each; two reyerb-  eralory furnaces surmounted with four  rotary calciners each, dust chambers and  stack. When fully completed tbe plant-  will have a total capacity of about 300  tons daily, but it will be some time  before that desirable figure is reached.  The plans of the plant are very com  pleto.a'id the system is the latest and  most successful." With practically unlimited quantities of ore to draw from  the future of the venture has already  assumed that roseate hue so pleasing to  a man of "Mr. Heinze's artistic taste.  The row about right of way which has  kept the two townsagogfor several weeks  appears to have been temporarily adjusted aud the tramway people are now  advertising for men and material sufficient to double the pteseut gang. Home  rather heavy rock work remain  doue aud it will bo well along into the1  .Spring before tbe mighty output of precious rock rolls over the rails from Rosslaud to Trail, and "The drivers cease  from swearing, and tbe mule teams' are  at rest."  Iu the towu of Trail busiuess is good  and j;etting better every day. So soy all  those who are in it. Trail hicks in many  ways that tang of frontier spirit so dear  to those who know and love the "good'  old times in tbe good old camps", but she  means' business in the most modern sense  and has as littlo time for "frills" as any  of them.

Yesterday was the feast of St. Valentine and Wednesday was the Chinese  New Year. The latter was celebrated  with the usual display of fire crackers  and other noisy pyrotechuics.  The formal opening of the Royal Hotel  will be celebrated with the usual appropriate ceremonies by Messrs. Cherbo &  Booth in the new building at the corner  of Silica nnd Stanley streets this evening.  We regret to hearof the death of Mr.  Green senior, father of Mr. Robert Green  of Kaslo. ' The remains of the deceased  gentleman have been shipped to his late  home-in Pembroke, Ontario.  Mrs. Ironside died at her husbands  residence ��������� on Victoria street this  morning and will be buried tomorrow  afternoon at 3.30 p.m. The deceased  lady had been ailing for some,time.  Mr. A. M. Johnson who recently  passed his final examination as a  barrister and solicitor was presented  to the full court in Victoria on Saturday last by Mr. E. V. Bodwell. c He  will probably return to Nelson during  the coining week and open an office  here.  The s.s. Nakusp got rather a severe  handling during a storm on the  Arrow Lakes on Saturday last and  consequently had to lay up, over one  trip, for repairs She was however on  the route again yesterday and left  Nakusp for Robson at noon. Her  passengers will arrive here today,  Superintendent Johnson has nearly  got his smelter ready for work again.  Certain iron work Is to arrive tonight  from Spokane which can quickly be  adjusted. The work of fitting,new  sheaves and clips to the tramway is  still going on and will probably be  finished on Tuesday when it should  be in working order again.  The ranks of our professional men  have been augmented by, the arrival of  Dr. Syihonds. The new doctor took  his degree at Edinburgh in 1884 and after studying further at Dublin andLon-  don passed intothe Royal Navy in 1885.  He came to this country as one of the  surgeons of H.M.S. Royal Arthur the  flagship of the Pacific squadron.  After eight years of service he retired  on a gratuity and established himself  at Donald, but being attracted by the  tame . and growth of Kootenay has  now come to Nelson and settled down  amongst us. His offices are in the  Bealey block.  A NEW LODGE.  ���������vf Court of Independent Order of Foresters  Established in Nelson.  A Court of the Independent Order of  Foresters was instituted, at Nelson on  Wednesday evening last by Mr. W. F.  Swannell. Mr. Swannell holds the office  o* Deputy Supreme Chief Ranger of the  order. The Lodge opens with a strength  of 21 members. This successful organization which is an offshoot of the Ancient  Order of Foresters, has no less than 85,000  members in Canada the United States  and Great Britain aDd has also a surplus  81,500,000. The head office of this order  is in Toronto. The increase of membership last- year was no less than 25,000.  The establishment of a branch of this  order in Nelson is very much to be commended.

M'Minn.in a paper on  acetylene gas, thus'summed up the situation from an electrical standpoint:  This is a new gas, havlug an illuminating power much greater than that of  common gas. No investment for street,  mains is necessary, hence the gas com-  paaies must use it.either as an enrichcr,  or as an adjunct to ther present system  to supply isolated buildings which can  be reached neither by their present  mains-nor_by--el-ctric__lig__^._It__they^  obtain the rights for this gas, they will  have a weapon which will be as much  stronger than the Welsbach burners as  the acetylene flame is stronger than the  Welsbach light. To produce this gas or  calcium carbide the gas companies must  put in electric plants, whichwhen not in  use making carbide can de placed in competition in electric lighting.  There are places, and many of them,  where nothing will ever supersede the  use of electric lights, but when you, consider that only five per cent of the residents of south Wisconsin are- reached by  gas and only thirty per cent are reached  in Milwaukee, that even less can be supplied with electric lights, there is a field  open which is wonderful in the possibilities for successful investments aud large  business.  Most of your lighting plants are idle  during at least half the time, and could  thus be made producing plants for the  whole time, and;you could reach a territory which cannot be reached by either  the"gas companies or yourselves without  large outlays for extensions, and in most  cases not reached at all.  Of the following facts I am certain:  1.   The gas is intensely.brilliant.  .2.   It has a decidely disagreeable odor  if it escapes without being burned,  aud  when burned emits no odor nor smoke. "  3! The gas can be distributed for  much less cost (considering the.interest  on the investment) in the cities and also  to every resident of the state, whether in  the city or country.  4. The same amount of light can be  produced for much less cost than by ordinary gas or electricity, for one-third  cubic foot of acetylene gas burned per  hour gives more illumtnation than, a  sixteen caudle power incandescent light  or five cubic feet of ordinary gas.  Allowing a maximum cost of 850 per  ton for carbide, delivered either as a  liquid or as carbide, sixteen candle power  with acetylene,(oup-third cubic foot per  hour) costs .0016; sixteen candle power  incandescent costs practically .006; sixteen candle power ordinary gas, at 81.76  per 1000 cubic feet, with four-foot tip,  .0070_; or acetylene costs .IG of   a  cent  In a despatch to Sir Hei ciiles Robinson Governor of Cape Colony, Mr.  Chamberlain, Colonial Secretiuy outlines the present condition of affair...  He points out that the mining interesr  the mainstay -of the9 country, is  mainly in the hands of thc Uitlanders,  who are debarred by legislation from  the rights of citizenship, and .states  that the whole direction of.aliairs and  the right of taxation remain a monopoly in the hands of a decreasing  minority of the population engaged in  agriculture, whilst the majority, who  raised the revenues, from ������75,0(10 to  ������2,000,000, ai'e denied any voice in the  government ofthe Transvaal and ai ������������������  unable lo obtain redress foi- the formidable grievances' hampering and  injuring them incessantly.      .> ���������  -Mr. Chambeilain " emphasizes .ch'n  pacific aud above-aboard character uf  the Uitlander agitation and asseiis  that the Uitlanders' petitions weie -  rejected by the Volksraad amid.scon,r  ful laughter, one member of that body -  challenging the Uitlanders to take up  arms aud tight. -:'  ��������� " ' .  He then proceeds to state the position of Great Britain and- her claims  toward the Transvaal, saying: "Since  lhe convention of 188. Great Britain  has recognized the Transvaal as independent, ;internally, but its external  relations are subject to the.control'6������  Great Britain. There is no reason thub-  a foreign state will dispute out* rights,  but it is necessary tn state clearly that  the government intends to maintain  them in theii:. imegi iiy. Interna,iy  Great Britain is justified by her inLi.r-  est in South Africa as a whole aud liir  the stability of thu Transvaal, and tu  lend, her, friendly councils regarding  the ' new comers, mainly. British  subjects."  The dispatch then deals at. length  with the grievances of.'the Band and  expresses .Chamberlain's ..belief that  the difficulty of naturalization and the  franchise is lo be met by'granting the  franchise after five years' residence  and' the removal of the objectionable  features of lhe oath of allegiance,  which would still deprive the oath-  takir of his status as a British subject.  As the settlement involves so many  details which are easier, settled by a  personal conferen'ce, Chamberlain  suggests to President Krueger.that if it  is convenient and agreeable to him he  should conn* to England.        .   .-.-.  This invitation has been accepted  and a special meeting of the Volksraad  will probably be held to appoint "a  Commission to accompany the President to England. -'-"���������''.

"Admirably  reasoned!    I  quite  agree  with you.'"-  Helen was flattered. In spite of an effort  at cool indifference, her cheeks , glowed  with pleasure at this spontaneous ack*  nowledgement. Still, she' tried to depreciate his compliment by saying: -  "That's only a feminine practitioner',  view."  "Nevertheless, rational.

Then Dr. Lancewood  rapidly gave his reasons. When ho had  concluded, Maj. Passmore said:  "1 shall do nothing of the kind. I'll not  have him in the house.  "Very well," said Helen rising, "then I  relinquish the case."  "I am glad you do. Lancewood, you'll  manage it better alone."  "I shall have nothing further to do with  lt, sir. I agree with Dr. Glade. We have  given you our opinion; if you follow your  own, you must be responsible for the consequences. Good-day, sir; good-day, Miss  Passmore." And with dignified urbanity,  Dr. Lancewood followed Helen into the  hall.. ..  Maj. Passmore was beside himself with  uncontrollable rage.  "Lancewood," he exclaimed from the  door, "that girl's bewitched ' you; she's  leading you by the nose���������you've lost your  wits���������you'll regret this, mark my words!"  "Maj. Passmore," said Dr. Lancewood,  with'exasperating coolness, "I am sorry  to see you have permitted your habitual  brusqueness to degenerate into rudeness.'.  Before the irate major could reply, the  door was closed, and the two doctors were  gone..  ,    "Oh,- Gerald, you carried it off. splendidly," said Helen, as they drove away. '  Two days later Maj.

We are glad to hear that the Hoard  of Hospital directors have arranged a  scheme hy which this most valuable'  institution may he kept alive. It, has-  been found that the public only.  wanted to be asked in order to show  its interest in the attair to the extent  of putting its hand into its pocket.  Mk.> Ciioasdailti; of the Hall Mines  has taken the matter, np warmly and  has promised to do his utmost to  secure the subscriptions of the large  number of men the company will  presently 'employ. The employes ol  the C. -fc K. S. N. Co. will also return  to their allegiance and many new men  will come in. A canvasser lias been  appointed to go round the district and  ask those who are waiting to be asked  for their subscriptions. Meanwhile  we beg of everyone not to wait to be  solicited but to go to the treasurer 01  to any of the governors and hand in  his name as a subscriber. It is believed  that the Government will contribute a  larger amount this year than it ha>  previously done. Hitherto the  hospitals at Kamloops and Golden  have received about twice the annum 1  that Nelson has. Looking to the  amount of revenue received from West  Kootenay. this is'hardly fair.  FREE SILVER.  Free silver men have decided to hold  a Convention at St Louis on .Inly 22  for the purpose of nominating a presidential candidate. At a conference in  Washington at which this course was  decided upon, an address was framed  declaring that "tlie paramount issue  at this time in the U. S. is between the  gold standard, gold bonds and bank  currency on tlie one. side, and the  bimetallic standard, no bonds and  government currency on the other;''  and that they "are unalterably  opposed to the" single gold standard  and demand the immediate return Lo  the constitutional standard of gold  and silver, by the restoration by this  government, independently of any  foreign power, of the unrestricted  coinage of both gold and silver into  standard money, at the rat io of 10 to 1  - and-upon terms of exact equality as  they existed prior to 1S7.'3; the silver  coin to be a full legal tender, equally  with gold, for all debts and dues,  public and private."  This simply resolves itself into the  -question���������whet her-the-United-Stat os-  is strong enough to make other  countries accept silver for her debts to  theni which she has promised to pay  iu gold. Were she able to do so it is a  little doubtful if she would wield the  power, as the action is not strictly  honest. The American nation is too  honorable to do anything underhand  in,the matter apart altogether from  tbe disastrous eil'ect such action would  have on its credit. AVe are much afraid  -that the millenium of 10 to I-will not  come" until there is a general agreement among all nations in favor of it.  A VICTORIAN HERCULES.  Victoi ia has got a Pa men uhst. The  Rev. Mn. Trotter has taken up the  matter of the city's iniquities and like'  ���������a moral Hercules is going to clean  out the Augean stable.- He began by  preaching a sermon in which he gave  a description of gambling dens and  other abodes of vice in Victoria.    Now  1 people who are interested in this sort  ['-   of thing would do "well to watch Mit.  Trottek.      It" mav  be that' he   has  nothing but the salvation of souls iii  : hia mind. But it must be remembered  that' parsons like newspapers live  largely by notoriety. When either  takes up a .subject that is novel,  especially interesting, and has a little  ���������of the flavor of forbidden fruit about  it, it takes at once. The church is  filled to'sutt'ocation in one case, in the  other an extra large edition is printed  and sold. The result is the same in  both cases���������cash. Now it is perfectly  well known among' newspaper men  that nothing draws like a big divorce  ���������case with plenty of filthy details. The  social evil, as it is called is equally  effective, but decent' journalists forbear to soil their pens with corrupt  matter of this kind. Mr. Stead is a  notable  example.     His   dabblings   in  . the dirt of great cities are well known  ���������and though he has a large following of  a certain  class,   he has entirely   lost!  caste amongst  his   fellow journalists  'und with the bulk of people generally.  We are rather inclined to believe, that  Mn. TnoTTKii is simply ��������� among the  notoriety seekers. The sermon that  he preached was not fit. to be listened  to by sisters and daughters and wives.  If he has all the evidence that he says  he has, his object was not advanced by  preaching a sermon on it. He should  take it first to the authorities and lay  it before them, if they decline to net  then his only recourse would be to stir  i*,p public feeling on the matter by  publicity. But we are afraid that the  bulk of public feeling in the matter is  mi the side of leniency. It likes to be  tickled as to its sins but dot's not relish  the prospect of a perfectly moral town  where it is always Sunday afternoon.  THE POSITION OF SIL VER.  During the recent shocks experienced by the money maiket owing to  Venezuelan threatening!), Transvaal  troubles and German impudence, silver  has steadily maintained its price. Jn  February lust this quotation for bars in  London was 27.]d per ounce. Since  January 1 of this year it has lirmly  .stood at .i(Md or a little bettei. The  New York prices at the same periods  were 501 cents in February 18i>5 while  now they are keeping up pretty well  10 07.J. The rise here is somewhat  higher than it has been in London.  At the end of the war between China  and Japan it was thought that the  necessities of the situation would  lequire a large quantity of silver to be  ���������-en. to the far East. These anticipations were not fulfilled. Japan cer-  ainly did purchase some little  amounts, chiefly in India, but the  transactions were effected so quietly  as not to affect the market. Still the  price kept up. Other causes for its  strength must therefore be looked for.  The London Statist is now regarded  as an authority of the highest standing upon all financial questions, and  ! his; is what it has to say upon this  matter; The silver market has been  very firm although India, China and  Japan, aro not buying. Considerable  orders have been placed for Franc-,  and the United States is holding back  ���������he metal for higher prices. All this  points to the beginning of another  -peculation in silver, and, in fact there  is an inclination upon the Stock  fix-hange to buy all kinds of silver  securities. The principal reason, no  doubt, is . that the belief is now  becoming general all over Europe, and  is shared to a considerable extent in  the United States itself, that ^silver  will before long become the real  standard of value iu the United States.  If so, it is argued, the Indian mints  will be reopened,' and there will be a  very sharp rise in the metal.   ���������  This is most cheering reading and  we wish tliat the Stalest had'left it at  that. Unfortunately however, it  proceeds to warn its readers against  placing any too great .reliance on the  iheory. In this the Statist is right.  There has lately been quite a revolution of feeling in tlie United States on  ihe silver question. In several States  where no one but silver advocates  were in it at all, the agitation has  completely subsided and men are left  out in the cold who were at the very  height of popular favor. Iii all pro-  liability the real reason for the firmness in the price of silver is the one  generally put forward in American  journal? namely the large increase in  the production of gold. For us here  in ' Kootenay and especially in the  SlocanV" the:-reason-for "thVrise iirthe*  price is a secondary consideration, but  there seems every probability that the  present satisfactory price.will not only  be maintained, but will gradually  harden. To what figure it will go no  one dares hazard a guess.  ���������.    NOTES.  The Parliamentary" papers, so far as  they have yet reached us contain-little  I hat"is of interest to Kootenay lo.ally  or to the business of mining in general.  Petitions havo been received for legislation permitting ihe establishment of  water works at Sandon, and electric  light and water works at Rossland,  also from the Nelson Electric. Light  company for matters affecting their  charter.  Dr. Cyrus Edson a well known  physician of New York has discovered  what is apparently a cure for consumption or tuberculosis in every form. It  was ascertained that a week solution  of carbolic acid killed the germs of  this disease which had been at tificially  produced in the laboratory. The difficulty to -be solved was how to apply  (he remedy to the germs when at their  deadly work inside the human body.  After much research Dr. .Edson bas  produced a fluid which he names  aseptolin." This can be safely used as  a hypodermic injection and as far as it  bas been tried on 217 persons has been  successful.  It is quite natu-al that the people of  the United States should feel a  national pride in the successful raising  of their loan among themselves.  That however is "not quite what they  wanted." The object ofthe loan is to  pay the country's debt's in Europe and  elsewhere. The subscribers t.o the new  loan will have to put up their good  gold which will be at once shipped out  of the country, [t was in the hope  that this .. export of gold would tie  stopped 1 hat the loan was thought of.  What they leally wanted was that  European countries should subscribe  the money.and thus put off the drain  of that amount of gold for 30 years, or  until the loan was,repayable. President Cleveland's warlike message of  course at once put an end to any idea  of raising the money in Europe and so  ii had to be done in America which  lenders the whole affair a complete  failure.  AVe have received the annual report}'  of-the Public Schools of the Province  for 1801-5. It is a bulky volume of  statistic- containing 349 pages, and an  appendix of 128 pages more. It is an  absolutely uninteresting compilation  of ut-eles."- details which we venture to  asssei t no one except perhaps a few  faddists will ever read.' Its sole merit  is that it is out in good time. We  await the report on th/* mines.  Heaven only knows when this will  reach us. Probably not until its information is long out of date. It will be  interesting to compare it when it does  come witli this other one just to hand.1  They are both issued under direction  of the same minister.  The Statistical Year Book of.Canada  for 1801 published by the Dominion  government is being quoted far and  wide The portion that attracts  attention is that which treats of  Canada as a farming country. This is  going to be changed. We have just  got to show that the mines of British  Columbia are as rich as the whole of  the rest of Canada put together. It is  a big job but we can do it. The government of the Dominion is against us  at present. They have voted $750,000  a year towards a fast Atlantic service.  This is mainly to encourage exports of  cheese and other farm produce. The  money which is a large sum al! goes  into the one pocket and is something  worth having. Our efforts to build up  a smelting industry are helped by a  paltry $00,000 which seems likely to be  split up among many pockets and is  worth nothing to anyone.  The person who makes up the  English news published in the Colonist  probably resides in Alaska, or Tiro-  buctoo or the wild forests of Borneo;  No one who lives in a civilized country  or who knows any'hing about, current  affairs could possibly compose such  terrible trash. In a recent letter it is  announced that "it is well known"  that the Queen desires to confer  peerages on Cecil Rhodes and Dr.  Jamieson, and has brought her personal influence to bear on Lord Salisbury on the matter and won his  support. This has occasioned a coolness between the new premier and Mr.  Chamberlain, who is pledged to bring  Dr. Jamieson to a fair trial. It is  further hinted that Mr. Chamberlain  may again "change his coat" and  return to the Liberal ranks. Now this  is on the face of it such an absurd heap  of misstatements and ignorance that  it is scarcely worth while to point  them out. As to the peerages, itis  scarcely likely that a man whose  antecedents were so shady that even  the Prince of Wales could not get him  into the Travellers Club, would be  raised to-thar dignity, while as to Dr.  Jamieson, he has never done anything  whatever to begin to be eligible for  the honor. Men who know have not %  good word to say either for him or  Cecil Rhodes. Mr. Chamberlain has  never yet changed his coat and is not  the sort of man to do it. When these  things happen J. Fred Hume will be  asked to take Chamberlain's place in  'he British Cabinet and Porcupine  Billy will have a seat in the House of  Lords.  ROYAL HOTEL,  ���������  Cur.

It presented an enormous median, occipital fossa in place of  tho occipital median spina which ooours  In the Interior of the -kull. Thla ta a characteristic wanting in the superior apea  and existing In all vertebratea. I made  the autopsy In the yard of the prison In  the early hours of tha ��������� ornlng. Tha day  was very foggy, in tha winter of 18-4.  The weather and the place did not permit  me to make a thorough autopsy, but I recollect how, at that moment, the whole  idea of my future work rose before me Ilka  a picture. I Instantly perceived that the  criminal must be a survival of tbe primitive man and the carnivorous animals.  The Idea, though yet embryonic waa perfected a few daya later, when I was called  as an expert by tha tribunal of Bargain*  in the cue of a sort of Jack the Ripper���������  one Verzentl. This young peasant, with  cross eyes and enormous.jawa, waa possessed with a desire to disembowel, chaw  and eat morsels of wumaa, young and old,  who happened to cross hia path.
