Then Muki Abd-el-Aziz reached lln-  lint in' saretv and the news of the death  j of the old sultan was proclaimed, and  Sir Hiutv Aubrey Do. Voro Maclean,  to give him his full lOnglish title, who  afier serving as a British soldier, resigned from the British army in 1S70  to be a Moor, is now leaving liis beautiful palace in Morocco and returning  to En gland.  A. keen, clever Scotsman, in Moorish  dress, a man rather, 'short of statu re,  gifted with commanding ability and  great courage ; a striking figure clothed  in loose trousers tucked into Unlit riding1 boots, an embroidered coat of  Zouave style, a soft white turban- and  a loose robe falling over liis shoulders���  i  such is Kaid Maclean, late commander  iti:chief of the grand army of the Sultan of Morocco. The sight of one eye  isgonc.but the other is good enough  for two.  Something over a quarter of a century ago, the young Scotsman, being  on duty in 'Gibraltar,-, took' a jauni  across to Morocco. At the iii.taiice of  the late Sir John aDruniniotnl 1 lay,  then British . the court of  the Sultan, he was offered the post of  musketry instructor to the' Moorish  army. Being a Scotsman,-arid therefore far-seeing, lie "grasped theski ts of  happy chance," and took the post.  He taught the Moor how to sin ot,  and as,jnaster of military things in a  country where the problem of defence  is of immense import, a very few years  found him standing close to the throne  itself. .Then a* a high honor, and as a  fitting recrgtiition of the great ^rv'ces  he had rendered to the nation, the  ��� Sultan made him Kaid. -When Abd-  el Aziz the throne of Morocco,  M..clean became his friend and council I oi\7  Of .all the things thc kaid lias  achieved he has done nothing better  than ihis great feat of becoming a  Moor "without ceasing to be a Scot.  lie has roamed the wild regions of  Morocco, with the" nomadic CMirt and  has often been the only 'connecting  link between the Sultan and the ministers of the powers who remained,  ra >re orJsjj pitto-Hly, at Tangiir.  - A soldier, a royal adviser, an atniy  administrator, he soon became a diplo-  mat. And now and then lie w'.iuld  put on, with a~~__r.>win,r leeltng of  strangeness, mayhap, an English s'lit  of.clothes, and would come over and  makS a stay at Brighton, and visit the  ollicials of Downing street. Then  buck across tl.e sea once more Morocco  bound.  Of course, like most successful men,  he wasa constant victim of jealousy'.  There were those who watched with  the "green eye" his influence with the  Sultan and his suc'jessfal h 1:1 lling of  the army, and in the course'of a "military mission" from France was ' |ila<-ed  sit lhe Sultan's disposal." Hut ull the  moves of the continental chessboard  failed tp break the contidence liis imperial master had in him.  Up and down the land lho Kaid  Maclean journeyed willi the 1.1. Su'tan'  and was with him during the List dramatic march 'from -Murrakcsh to Rabat.  In the last journey the ."son of Mohammed"   then   became a'-weaiy old  t ie body was l.iid beside the grave of  his ancestor, Sidi Mohammet. So  necessary been to maintain lite  death secret that the body had been  curried into Rabat through a hole in  the waJJ at the dead of night.  This ghastly mockery was followed  by a period of added influence for the  Kaid Maclean. The uneasy throne o*  the young sultan seemed to serve Mae-  lean still greater opportunities for wise  ciuncil, ready resource and prompt ac-  ti ni in ciisis. Tlie young sultan  cimeto the throne with no knowledge  of the world outside the walls of Itis  har.ui. To his credit be'it said that  he bad the wit to recognize in Maclean  tiie strot'g man to upon.  As illustrations of M_e!eau's endurance and resource it mny be mentioned,  that he has often been in '.. the saddle  nineteen hours out of tbe twenty-four,  and that when he lost the use of his  right eye, he made himself a dead shot  from tlie left shoulder. He has long  had the title of tho "best interpreter in  Morocco," and hasfavorablyimpressed  the Sultan witii his English ways and  diplomacy.  The drive from the coast of -Morocco  across Ihe Fez in a cab is an experience  given to few. He bought for the Sultan an up-to-date hansom from Long  Acre. It was duly latided at the coast,  and then came thc problem of getting  it acr jss to Fez.  Harry Maclean, who had overcome  so many other "difficulties, made light  of this one. He mounted tlie box,  cracked the whip and started off on a  d.'ive of 120 miles across a country innocent of roads. At one time at a difficult mountain pass the wheels had to  hi taken off and the body of the hansom slung between camels.  Sohe has'gone on fighting the Sultan's cunning enemies, lighting the  ch .Iera's scourge, fighting the wiles of  European diplomacy, lighting the difficulties of a semi-savage country for  the sake of progress aid liberty.���Philadelphia Ledger.

Being disappointed in his  effort to gain an entrance to the stores,  he seeks "tit a representative of the  Tribune, and pours a tale of woe into  the ears of that individual. He "roasts  the moral cowards who keep their  business houses closed to please a half-  dozen faddists." No one else seems to  be able to discover this individual, and  in the opinion of many this outspoken  gentleman is regarded aa a creature of  of the imagination of tbe Tribune editor. The presence of this apparition  at the Tribune oflice this year has been  supplemented by au attack on the business men who have dared to conduct their business to suit themselves.  It is charged that many business men  in Nelson who are observing the half-  holiday are victims of the tyranny of the "faddists," and that others  are closing their door merely for a  blind.

It was important  that  they should be instructed as* to tiie advantages of Nelson as a tourist resort.  If it had uot been for T. G. Proctor  they would have been permitted to depart without anything more than a  mere mention of their names in tbe  dally papers. Mr. Procter when made  aware of their presence rented a launch  and took them up tbe lake and explained to them why their railway  should afford every facility to tourists,  with the result tbat they promised to  give tbis matter their immediate attention. Now, this cost Mr. Procter  not less than $20, and as there was no  fund to draw upon, of course he had to  pay it. And this is only one instance  of Mr. Procter's efforts to render good  services to the city. Tbis problem should be solved in some way.  The city council appears to be able to  spend large amounts in lawsuits, surely  a few hundred dollars could be spared  for the purpose of entertaining tourists  and others whose presence here would  prove beneficial to tbe city and Kootenay.  ^/TITTLE MONEY  "- - v//_  ;.
