The accident  happened on Coulee biidge tiDiir St.  Mary's river, nine miles from Lethbridge in Alberta, lt -ippeurs that a  high wind carried away a portion of  the bridge, dashing the men working  on it, CO or CO feet to the bottom nf the  creek."

A public meeting for the purpose of  choosing recreation ground trustees  was called for lust night, but owing to  thn fact that practically no notice was  given, tliere was a very meagre attendance.

Sap f  THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE  RECOMMENDS ARMED INTER-  - VENTION IN CUBA  War-like Resolutions of a Conference  of Senators���������Sain Unable to Guarantee Security to Foreign Vessels-  Rioting of a Spanish Mob in Kingston, Jamacia.  (Special to thk Herald.)  Washington, April 11.���������Tho President's mess-age went1 to Congress today. It reciinunends armed intwrven-  tion in case the request of the United  States is not complied with, but the  word "immediate" before the word  armed" bus been struck out. Nut  only this but the President and Cabinet on the new programme for Spain  intimate that she should be allowed to  form a new government if she desires.  Thus Spain has gained her point in  making delay. Congress may not  agree with McKinley's pacific tone.  A conference of Senators! have framed  the following resolution, which is to  be introduced "Resolved by the Sen*  ite and House of Representatives of  the United States tliat tlie President  he'and is hereby v empowered and directed' to take such * action a.*, will  bring an' immediate, ���������toj'ininatioii to  the hostilities in Cuba and to establish  a stable government, by mid for peace  on the Island and is hereby, empowered and directed to use the bind and  naval fort-ess of the -United States.' if  necessary to bring about that end.  The President's message asks Congress to authorize tho President to  take measures to secure'the establishment of a"' stable government there  and to use',.the military and naval  forces of the'United States as may be  necessary for .those purposes. The  President says the only hope of relief  from the condition "which can no  longer be endured is the enforced  pacification of the Island. The issue  is now with Congress/and he awaits  its action, standing prepared to carry  out every obligation'imposed on him  by 'tli-e'constituents. ���������Spain', .decree  for the.suspension of hostilities is submitted'to Congress foi just and cure-  Tiii"*!ittentior., with" the observance  that, if,the measure attains ' success  and careful result then our a__.pit.i-  tions as a peace loving people, will be  realized. If it fails it will be only another justification for our contemplated action. The Maine" incident  argues prominently in the message.  The President argues that the wreck  of the Maine, in Havana harbor shows  that Spain is' not able to' guarantee  security to foreign vessels- Spain has  disavowed any connection. in\t.he  disaster' and olfered to submit all  differences which may arise from that  BURIED ItLTHE SNOW  Death   Descends   with   a   Rush   Upon  Fifty Seven Klondikers.  The Victoria papers of Saturday report a terrible tale of loss of life by a  snowslide in the Chilkoot Puss. It  oct-urrcd at the "cut off," a short trail  ised in the return trip, about two  miles above Sheep Camp, along whicli  close to the sides of a steep glacier  hundreds of people wero camped.  All Saturday night a heavy snow  storm had been raging iu the pass and  the huge weight of snow towards  morning caused the first little slides.  None of theso were serious, however,  md it was not till 10 o'clock on Sunday  morning that . anything serious happened. The mild weather had honeycombed the snow that was lying on  the mountain sides-before the Saturday night storm, and the fresh snow-  falling on top had proved too great a  weight. Consequently the big blankets of snow slid olf the steep mountain sides'.  Suddenly with a roar a great muss  of snow fell from the mountain and  buried three men. Hundreds of people were passing up the main pass and  manv weie also travelling downwards  through the cut olf, for it is estimated  that at least 4,000 people went over the  pass daily.  ���������There were "manv willing hands  ready to give assistance, and soon a  score of men were digging , away to  rescue the unfortunates. Not long  afterwards a huge body of snow.ex  tending along tlie _ide of the mountain for a long "distance gave way and  caiii'e thundering down ir.to the" pass,  burying men and tents und oxen and  horses arrd dogs. Where a few moments before v_li.ul stood a little camp  with more than a hundred men was  now a broken muss of snow and ice.  When the people'wtio saw this recovered from themomentury panic they  caught up shovels, ' picks find even  pails and pans .with which to try and  dig out the victims, who were buried  under the mountain of snow and ice.  Tlie work was rendered far more difli-  culfc'-liy the fact 'that 'there-was so  much ice'mixed with'> the'shntv that" it  was* difficult to" handle. .Word was  sent to Sheep'Camp two.miles down  the trail, and in a short time hundreds  of men were working' for life and  death to save the victims of the snow.  Fifty-seven people wero taken out  alive, many of them badly hurt, others  benumbed with , cold* and some few  quite uninjured. So loud was the  noise of the lust and greatest avalanche  that it .vus heard at Sheep Camp, two  miles away. As fast as the dead were  taken out they were'earried to Sheep  Camp, where the living were cared for  in the tents of the campers on the  main trail.  GAMBLE & O'REILLY,  Civil Engineers.

Latimer, of Langley Prairie. B.C., writes: "I cannot speak" too  strongly of the merits of Magic, Liniment. I had been a great sufferer from  rheumatism for many ye.~~.i~~-, during  it-hidi time I hud tried many doctors  and remedies; but Magic Liniment has  enr-ed me completely. 11 rubbed the  liniuient on for ttvo weeks, after which  my rheumatism entirely left me. and  has not troubled me since. We find it a  useful household remedy in our home  and would not be without it." Price,  25 cents a bottle.  offer.  Washington, April 12.���������The future  relations of- the United Stales and  Spain as to Cuba now rest with Congress. The Foreign Committee of  both houses now have the subject' in  their control and tvill report what they  consider should be the attitude of the  -United Stfites. The effect of the  President's message w.-is quieting.  The Cabinet coincide with the Chief.  The majority in both houses favored  the independence of Culm. The message did not accord with the sentiment  of the majority. At a caucus of  Senators a declaration of war tvas  talked of, but it was thought it would  not carry in the Senate. Airy hiicIi  measure will be promptly amended,"  or the fire taken out of it. The only  esolution will be to recommend the  President to intervene at his discretion  in Cuba's affairs.

Social at the Methodist Church.  The concert unil dinner given by the  ladies of the Methodist church on Easter Monthly proved 11 great attraction.  Dinner was served from 0 to about  half past 8 o'clock, and all who partook of it were unanimous iu their  priiiso of ihe evening's menu. A  volunteer staff of Indies and gentlemen  attended to the wants of the guests,  and. performed their duties in a most  efficient manner. The second part of  the evening's entertainment was  opened by a happy speech from tho  chairman. Rev. J. A. Wood. Thereafter 11 splendid programme was gone  through. Every number wus well  rendered and appreciated accordingly,  though the honors of the evening  were accorded to Mr., Latvson. whose  recitations well deserved the enthusiastic reception they met. with.

Griffiths.& Co.,  DEUOGISTS. ItEVELSTOSE.  Kootenay in the Old Country.  Mr. J. J. Young of the Calgary Herald, who was in town yesterdav, told  tl.e'Hekald that during his recent  visit to England he found a very satisfactory and favorable feeling towards  British Columbia existing. The Klondike excitement has proved a most  potent advertisement for this part of  the world and the opinion in broking  and pioriioting circles is that British  Columbia is destined to become the  next fiishionable craze among speculators. - A 11 umber of syndicates have  already been-formed to send experts  out to this country to report on its  mineral resources, uud others are being formed. Developed and proved  properties tvill prove the chief, and indeed the only attraction worth mentioning, to these people. ��������� There is an  immense amount of" capital in the old  country earning at present only one  and a half per cent., for which'-more  lucrative openings are continually being sought, and some of wliich will 110  doubt be diverted in the near future to  British Columbian channels.  As Celebrated in the Various Revelstoke  Churches.  . Easter day began in St. Peter's"  church" with" an eaily celebration of  the Holy Eucharist at S o'clock which  was fairly well attended. At the second celebration at 11 o'clock the church  was crowded and a large number made  their Easter communion. Again at  the evensong, which" wus fully choral,  a very large congregation was present.  'All the familiar Easter hymns were  sung ut these services, which were  very bright and -hearty. The members of the parish were especially glad  to welcome Mr. Fordjthe vicar, once  more among them, after his illness.  The Easter offerings nearly reached  $30 in amount. The church was beautifully decoraLed with a profusion of  flowers on the chancel screen, and  altar," and texts running round the  church and across the rood beam,  " Christ our Passover is Sacrificed for  us.therefore let ns keep the Feast," aud  ".Jesus Christ is Risen Today, Alleluia." A new carpet for the sanctuary  and a new kneeler for tho. communion  rail, the latter the gift and work of  Mrs. Drew were among the Easter  offerings of the day.  In the Methodist church Rev. J. A.  -Wood.-tho���������paslor.-preached-seriuons  bearing on the great event commemorated at Easter at both services, and  the choir rendered some special Easter  music very acceptably. The 'services  were well attended during the day.  In the Presbyterian church Rev. P.  D. Muir preached his farewell sermons  before leaving for Ashcroft.

At a meeting of the directors of the  Great Western Ltd. held yesterday  the arrangements for the transfer to  the company of the Nettie L. claim on  the Pool group near Ferguson were  completed.

Arrangements are also  lieing made to obtain crown grants for  the ^various properties owned by the  company, as sufficient work has been  done on them all to entitle the company to the grants. ,,  Where is He at?  A  question   that   is  agitating   the  minds of local  politicians  is :    Where  is Hon. D. W. Higgins?   There is no  uncertainty   as   to   his bodily whereabouts, for   his   bulky   form  may  be  seen-reclining gracefully   in the comfortable chair provided   for him in the  house ; but where is he politically ?   It  was announced with   a great flourish  of trumpets by opposition papers that  the  Hon. D.   XV., upon  resigning the  speakership, would be   found  fighting  for the right beneath the banner of the  opposition, but as yet it  has not been  apparent to tho ordinarycibserver that  the honorable gentleman is particularly   inclined   to   oppose his   erstwhile  friends,   Messrs. Turner, Pooley & Co.  The ex-Speaker may be only "biding  his time," but there are those who  are  uncharitable enough  to say that he is  trying to run with the hare and hunt  with  the hounds.

THE COMING OF THE SPOILS  SYSTEM  Montreal Star:    It is an "unpre-  decented thing in this couutry. at  least in the memory of this generation, fora parliamentary party to  deliberately and   openly hold up  the government of the day in the  midst of a session and demand that  ib pass over the patronage.-  Yet  this is exactly what has been done  aud presumably is still being done  at Ottawa by the Liberal parliamentary party.   Their own press  have been exceedingly frank about  the matter. Tho customary secrecy  of the caucus room has been Hung  to the winds, and the country-has  been told with the^ utmost sang  froid that two successive and prolonged caucuses of the government  party were held for the purpose of  berating the   Ministers   for their  failure to   distribute the "spoils"  with  desirable   celerity  aud   ex-  clusiveness.   A cooler carelessness  nf public opinion could   not well,  have been shown.   These political  gentlemen of the road have not  even had the grace to be ashamed  of their conduct.   They have gone  to the press with their grievance  and    called   upon    their    fellow  parti/.aus throughout the country  to come to their support in this  noble battle for a fair share of the  "plums."  This condition of affairs at  Ottawa canuot fail to challenge  the attention ot the electorate.  It is not a condition that can make  for healthy government. The  cabinet is uecissarily more or less  the creature of the party behind  it; and^'if. that party will have  ____"o_thi.ug_ less than all, the Tory  ."deputy heads" in a charger, aiid  insists that the sensitive gentlemen who now do business with the  departments shall not iind there  tho same unsympathetic oflicials  whom they were accustomed to  see during tho reiun of _"thc Tory  oligarchy," the Ministry canuot  very well help giving wav to some  3 degree to this demand. And there  is unfortunately little evidence  that the Ministers are, as a whole,  imbued with a Spartan spirit to  resist the clamor of those who do  not "make elections" for the  excitement there is iu them. All  this leads the way to the morass  of the spoils system: nnd the  experience of our American  neighbors has shown thai there  are few deeper holes in the political  "bad lands" than this.  The average citizen felt In������t  year, while government commi.-  sions were trotting about the  country arranging for the decapitation of Tory officers where-  ever evidence of Toryism could be  found, that we were getting  altogether too much of the spoils  system. But now it ~epra= that  this was not nearly enough for the  men upon whose support the  Ministers depend for their continuance in oflice. They are  entirely dissatisfied at the little  that haslbeen clone, and have  taken the extreme step of sending  the torch to the country in an  endeavor to arouse faithful  Gritism the Dominion over to serve  a demand upon the Ministers to  set the head������man at work again.  Nor is it any little local complaint  by a few constituencies, The  whole party appears to be furious  at the sight of Tories still -'feeding  at the public crib." Plainly we  are to have the "spoils system" up  to the limit if the Liberal parliamentary party has its way.  - Xow is the countiy in favor of  our adoption of this cast off shell  of American politics? Popular  government was nearly strangled  byit across the border, andescape  was had from its toils only by the  fiercest struggling and the formation oE what was practically a  new party. Are we ready to saddle  ourselves with an incubus that the  Americans have hung off? This  must become a live question with  us just in proportion as the distribution of the ofiices is made the  "Nothing is more sttntling, says  a  Weekly Sun  writer,  than   tlie  decadence,  we might almost say  Ihe   downfall,   of   tho   American  Senate.     It used to  lie the conservative aud dignified  branch of  the legislature.    It utterly J owe its  character" for conservatism  when  it voted that the  public creditor  might bo paid in  bn^o money.   It  forfeited its dignity tho other day  by recklessly accusing the Bi itish  government of plotting the annexation of Hawaii.   Ifc received from  the Bi'iti~h foreign ollice a flat contradiction,   to   which  it .can say  nothing in   reply.     One source of  this loss of character ��������� is  the importation of senators from territories still in the frontier condition  and  unfit to bo State-, but made  States by party policy for the sake  of their senatorial votes.    Another  source   i_    the    election   of    barbarians such as Senator Till man  by the mean whites of the south,  w'ho,    tho    oid   planter    families  having      been       ruined,      have  succeeded to power.   The refill tis  that the hou-e nf representatives  is now the respectable branch of  Congress, and   the  one who   lias  sober, councils   may   be  expected  to prevail.

Wasuinoton, April ',(!.���������It is announced semiofficially that in the important message to be presented lo  Congress this afternoon. President  McKinley recommends armed intervention in Cuba. This is looked on as  a long step toward war.  Washington, April 7.���������As swift as  a cannon's flash a change came over  came over the Cuban situation yesterday. The galleries of Congress hall  were crowded to their utmostcapacity  with an excited throng of people, The  Senators and Representatives appeared anxious and agitated, and even the  diplomatic, corps was in a ferment,  awaiting the message from President  McKinley to Congress that might  mean war. When excitement was nt  the very highest pitch, word wus  passed that there t\ ould be no message  today. Its suddenness stunned the  public, who heard the news in distorted forms, and amazed even members  of Congress. II. ultimately became  known that not only would there be  no message today, but no message thi~  week, and that there was at least a  possibility that the message written  and approved might never go to Congress at ull.  Two reasons are given for this. First  Genernl Lee would be unable to get  American citizens safely out of Cuba  und the second reason is that the  Madrid Governmenthus declined itself  ready to open up tlie whole question.  What the outcome will be. it is hard  to say, but. the aspect certainly offers  a more pacific outlook.  A Spanish cabinet crisis is rumored  and tbe Madrid parliament has adjourned foHthe Easier holidays.  The   Queen   Regent. of Spain   will  proclaim an armistice with Cuba,  '   It is suid that the European powers  have intervened between   the   United  Slates and Spain.

She  ckoso to willfully misinterpret my  words,  "It will all roll iu again. I think tho  gardeuer wants oxercise."  "Fred," I wont on severely, "is not  a man to bo played with."  "I don't play with him. His screw is  too feeble for words."  "1.1111 not referring to teunis.   Fred,  I repeat, is too good to be flirted with  in tho outrageous way you are doing."  "I don't flirt."   .  "Youdo, Edith. Last season it was I;  after that"���������  ��������� "Oh, that was not flirting; it was  cousinly"affection. Besides, you don't  count."  "It is tho Eamo thing.

What can ho say:"  "Oh", tho usual tort of thing���������very  much tbe same as you used to."  "Fred never struck mo as being particularly poetical."  "Were you' poetical?" sbo-inquired  innocently.   I disregarded tho question.  1      "As your cousin I am bound to speak  seriously to you, Edith."  "As my'cousin you are privileged to  be rude."

"I am three years older than you. A  man gathors a great deal moro knowledge of the world than a woman."  "That is why women are so charming."  "All women are not charming."  "That is so," she assented mnsingly;  "Constance Droury, for instance."  "Miss Droury is a particularly well  informed girl." I rather liked Constance; she appreciated my poems. Not  every girl has the power to 'appreciate  my poems.  "Yes, about the failings of her  friends."  "Thoy at least are failings."  "She says so."  "You are ill natured. I hopo, Edith,  you are not jealous in temperament."  "Of Constance? Certainly not."  Sho answered ray implied question,  not my verbal ouo.' I know by that that  she was hurt.  "Miss Droury is very popular."  "Fred hatos her. I thiuk she's well  meaning bat unfortunate"  "I was not thinking ol Frod."  "No, yon were thinking of yourself."  Edith bad a disagreeable   habit of  iJfeadiDgone'i thought*��������� to be mere cor  rect, of reading  my thoughts.    Sometimes it verged upon indocenoy.  "Wo are getting away from tho question," I said severely. "I waut to speak  to you seriously about your ltirtntion  with Fred."  "I deny tho flirtation."  "Thou it is serious?"  Sho did uot answer.

Miss Freenr is indeed  said lo bo tho lioinoliost wonum on the  English f.tape, a distinction, I hnvo been  told, which she hugely enjoys, for lt means  dollars ami cents, or, rather, pounds, shillings and pence, to hor. Ilcr first notable  pieco of work was as tho .slavey, Ruth,  in "Tho Girl From Purls." Josephine  Hall, beautiful though sho bo, saw Miss  Fivoar iii this part in London and at once  made up ber mind thut'shc would liko to  play it heio. So sho -got the American  .rights df the piccu and Edward "Evangeline" Rico put, it on for lier, with tho pecuniary nsf-istiinec of somo other pei sons.  Its success iu this city and throughout the  country is ono of l,ho notable facts in connection with the theatrical business of the  past ttvo jour;;. Now that Miss Freenr litis  mado another tremendous bit in a similar  part in "Oh, Susannah!" it is but natural  that Manager--Charles Frohman should  hnvo engaged Miss Hull, Miss Freenr herself nob boing available, owing to the continued success of tho farco in London.   -  Fritz Williams, tho young, gentleman  who dealt tho Lyceum a two edged blow  by resigning from its stock company and  then marrying its charming littlo ingenuo,  Kutlierine Floronco, is also in tho cast ol  "Oh, Susannah!" nnd it almost goes without saying that he 1ms mado a bit. This  actor lias dovcloped wonderfully. When" he  was at tho Lyceum, ho nearly always had  parts which wero peculiarly adapted to his  somewhat unusual methods o������ f unmaking.  Thero wero then many wlfo' declared that  if he over left thnt company, ho would soon  bink to bis level, whicli it was nlso hinted  would not provo to bo a very high 'one.  Well, be did leave and, despite tbo excellent work which lio had douo before and  has donq sinco, it, was really tlio most commendable- mid sonsiblo net ot Fritz Wil-  liams' theatrical caroer. Being on tho out  In othor words, Pnttor takes Snrdou's  di-fonso when charged with plagiarism in  "La Hnino" ond makos lt his own now  thnt ho is aoousud of having appropriated  matter from that play. Ho also fails to  state that ho has not moroly tukon an Idea  and worked lt ovor, but has rrsed scone  after scono almost exactly as writton by  Snrdou. Ho Ignoros entirely tho reference  to "Fill," ami thoro Is evidently method lu  that, for tho cablu brings thu now- that  Potter has takon tho proonution to buy tha  .English rights of tlmt story, There was  no international copyright botween this  country and Franco nt tlio timo that  "Fill" tvas written, but thore was between  Kngland and France, and tho fact that  troublo was promised whon. thu prod notion  of "Tho Conquorors" might bo attempted  In London may have Influenced Mr. Pot-  tar somewhat In his purohaso of tho Do  Maupassant story.  Sarah Bornhiirtlfc bas created a sensation  by hor aotlng us tho herolno of Gabriel  D'Annun/.lo's tragedy "La Villo Morto.'-'  The piny in tho hands of an ordinary company would appeal to none but thnso of extremely morbid temperament, but as the  Bernhardt impersonates it, according to  tho Parisian reviewers, it is one of the  Ki*3d test characterizations over socn on the  French stage. Sho plays a blind wlfo who  Is imbued with tho conviction that her  husband's all'ectlon for her has tvuned considerably and sho sets about tho work of  ascertaining definitely whether or not her  suspicions aro well founded. The methods "  by whioh tlio climax of tho piece is arrived  at aro said to be unconventional to thu  point of audacity, and thoro aro naturally  in a play especially written for Bernhardt  a uimibor of situations of exceptional  strength. Already it is whispered along  tho Klalto that It is now settled that tha  great French actress will visit us early  next season and that her coming wus dependent sololy upon tho success of "La  Ville Morte." Incidentally, it will also  provo the making of D'Aiimmzlo ns a  playwright, for the"dlvino Sarah" has already commissioned him to writo unother  tragedy for bor as a companion piece to  lior present work. D'Annuiizio's second  BU~ort will probably bo produced lato in  May and nut Improbably in London.  If Dame Rumor Is to bo believed, theater goers of tho 6innller cities who have  heretofore nover been uble to gratify their  tasto for music of the highest order, .will  havo tho opportunity to hear soma of the  best lyrio artists in the world next season.  Sembrioh, it Is pretty well sottled now,  will not be with tho Metropolitan at all,  and tlio report is that Mai bn will only sing  with that organization for a short timo.  Briefly, theso two magnificent singers, it  is said, intond to tour tho country with  small companies ot fairly good people giving tho old fashioned combination enter-  tninmont, which is half opera and half con-  cort. Necessarily only short operas will bu  used, but many of thorn aro more popului  than tho longer ones and are not heard more  frequently only.for the reason that the  public whicli pays several dollars a seat for  an evening's ontortalnmcnt Is dissatisfied  if it is sent homo beforo 11 o'clock. It  wants its money'., worth and is too apt ta  measure tho value by tho length of tho performance.  It is oven hinted that Culvo Is nluo nnx-  Jous to try tho.->Melba-Soinbrich plan next  sonson, but sho cxnotsa g-.i..rnntoo that her  sharo shall not bo less than $3,500 a performance. Whilo it is hot improbable that  sho might bu ablo to draw moro than that,"  it is a rather risky tiling for a manager ta  guarantee, especially when Patti, tho incomparable, may bo had for similar enter*  tniiinionts nt $4,000 for each performance.  Still, tho willingness of tho Frenchwoman to go into such a vonture on nny terms  is pretty good evidence that thero is a  growing impression thnt grand opera ns  presented by tho Damrosch and Metropolitan companies is possiblo only in threo or  four cities of this country and that there  Is also lots of money in the smaller places  which can bo gathered by tlio first artiste  of Iritoriiution.-il reputation who may go  aftor it In tbo proper manner.  An Ov<?rlool<ed  Featur<? of ... .  Newspaper Advertising  An important, though often overlooked feature of  newspaper advertising is the good feeling which-a pleasant  invitation, neatly plaeed in type, produces. Acquaintanceship  between our readers and advertisers is begun at the very  first time your advertisement appears.. The invitation may  not always be accepted at once, but good will, has been  "stablished.  With what a feeling of ease and serenity one enters  the store or hotel that is advertised ; he is welconie ; he has  been invited to come. With what confidence you inquire for  an advertised article; the proprietor himself' believes in it,  wants you to try it, is interested in your getting-, it. This  very good will, tliis appreciation of courtesy, this'-satisfaction  in being pleasantly asked, has been the foundation:"of manv a  successful business.  Newspaper advertising is something niorc than  spending money in the newspapers. If properly-done it is  the making oi' acquaintanceship and friendship, that will  surely be of great value in time to come. , *  Would you have your business or your article" so  favorably regarded ?

That observation has boon often \  mado, but it Is particularly apropos at the  present timo because of his inexplicable  conduct with referenco to bis piny, "The  Conquerors," which, by the way, is still  crowding tbo Empire thentor nightly to  tho doors, In good weather and bad. Pot-  tor was not only ncoii'vd of having taken  the first act of "Tho Conquorors" from Da  Maupassant's "Fift" and tlio remainder  cf the work from Sardou's "La Hnino,"  but tlio accusation was proved beyond tho  shadow of a doubt. That would havo cm-  bnrrassod sonio men, but Potter does not  appear to bo'bven annoyed. Ho docs not  deny it; that would bo useless. So instead ho writes to bis manager here. This  is tho text of tho salient portion of his letter:  "I hear that I am accused���������though I  have not road tho accusntiini���������of borrowing scenes of 'The Conquerors' from Snrdou's drama '"La Huino.' When ignorance,  malico and envy bail brought similar  thnrges against Sardou, ho wroto thoso  words in reply:  " 'It would"bo easy for mo to establish  that all timo nnd nil history hnvo consecrated tho right of tho dramatic author to  gather inspiration from subjects which  havo been troatcd before him. It would be  easy for mo to establish that the jiiero fnoi  of transforming, for example, 11 story into  theatrical action constitutes, by nature of  the work whicli it exacts, an art qnito distinct from that of tho story teller, ond is  consequently a nctv creation, ��������� new paternity.

Lnckuyo refused it point blank,  nnd considered tho matter closed. But he  did not know tbo manager with whom ha  was dealing.
