Jud,-_;e Thompson had tint evening  l'ptui'iiecl from court, in anolhiH" ciiiih-  ty, and lu-iiiK very liri'tl. was lvsting  on t.he sofa, nnrt the mother and her  son, supposing that ho was nsli-ep, had  bran speaking in an undertone; but us  the boy spoke.about his mothei- soiiiK  to the saloons, the jiuVe suililenly  roused up anil i-xelaimeil, "What tomfoolery is all tliatl" The boy slipped  nut, of llu; room and went to bed.  while .Mrs. Thompson assiu-ed hei-  husband that she would not be led  into any foolish act, by IDio Lewis, or  anybody else. After he had relaxed  into a milder mood, though continu-  inp; lo scut, at the wholo plan as  ���������'toiufoole.y," the gooel .woman ven-  tmedio remind him that the nieii  had bean in the "tomfoolery" business  a leing time, and. sii-jri-Ci'Sti'd lh.it it  inifjfht be "God's will" that the women  should now take their part.  The- next morniny after breukf-ist,  when "tliey were j;athei-i'rt in the sil-  tint>' room, lhu boy ciime up, nml laying his hand on his mother's shoulder,  inquired, "iUoLhi'i", are you not cuing  ov.ef lo the church this "morning?" As  she hesitated and doubtless showed in  lier c-ounlciiiince that sho wus greatly  perplexed, the boy said, "But, iny  dear mother, you know you have to  ;j;o." Then her daughter, who was  ���������sitting on a stool ill. her side, leaned  over in a most- tender maniier, anil,  looking np in her fare, said, "Don't  you think you will go?'' ��������� .  While tliis conversation had been  going on. Judge Thompson had been  ivaluing lhe tlooi- in silence. tSiuleleiily  lio si iippe-d, and placing his h.-inil upon  the family liibly that lay upon, his  wife's work table, he suid, "Children,  you know where your mothei' goes to  set Lie all vexed questions. Let us  leave her alone." iroitig out of the)  room iis he spoke, lhe cliiieh-eti following him. Mr.**. Thompson turned the  key in the lock, and was in the net of  kneeling down to pr.iy. when she  hoard a gentle lap on-llie door. Upon  opening it, .she tiuiiid her ilauglil. r  with lior Bible u\wn anil the tt'i.rr.  .'oiii'1-.ing do.vn her cheeks as she said.

They drew up appeals I.o druggists,  saloon kci'pe'i".*. and hotel proprietor--.  Then Dr. Mi-Suivly, the Pit's-liytor.iiin  minister, wlui'hnd I o this time occupied lhe chair, called upon "llie new  pii'sldi'iit to conn- forward and take  her place. She tried to get up, bul  liaving nei-er dono any public work,  lu'r'iiiubs refused to urt, and she sat  still. Wise Dr, JMcSiirely looked  around al the men and said, "Brethren, 1 see that the ladies will dn nothing while wei lemnin. Let us adjourn,  leaving this new work with God and  the women."  After the men had filed out, and the  dnov iv.is closed behind lliein, new  strength suemed to e-nmi' to Mrs.  Thompson, and she walked fiirward tei  lhe minister's table, took the large  Bible, and, opening it, loid the story  of the morning in her own home!.

The story came from two dif-  I'rent sources and may account for the  fact lhat ii-s yet theie have been no'  slop.-, tnken, so far as known, towards"  holding bye-elections.  When asked a couple of days ago lis.  to whether there was any likelihood of"  bye-elections being brought on, Pre-*  micr Semlin replied that there was no'  bin ry. Undsreii'diiiary ciicuinsUinces'  it is the custom to have the' bye-elec-"  tions for the uieinbers of a neiV .  ministry as promptly as possible, as:  by the acceptance of oflice their, seats"  in the Legislature are vacated.

SATURDAY,      AUGUST  1898,  Will He Investigate  Hou. Mr.  Sifton  has at last found  il necessary to attempt to refute the  stories of the misdoings of his agents  in the Yukon.   As'long as the reports  of crookedness and incapacity appeared  only in the  opposition  papers,   il  was sufficient for'him to suggest spite  or  mendacity  In  order  to  allay  any  doubts  as  to   the  integrity   or  capa-  bilty of the Yukon officials, but when  respectable   Liberal ..newspapers   one  after   another:    published,   apparently  from   authoritative   sources,   letters  from   Dawson     City,   charging    the  officials    of     the   government    with  corruption   and   fraud,   it   seemed   to  Mr. Sifton that something move than  a mere denial "was necessary.   Accordingly  his  inspector  of  mines,  Air.  J.  D. McGregor, formerly a horse -.dealer  in   Mr.   Sifton's   old   constituency   al  Brandon   has  allowed   himself  to   be  interviewed at Brandon, just about the  time Mr.  Sifton  himself happened  to  i isit   that   city.     The   result   ot   the  interview   appears   in   tho   Minister's  Mouthpiece of Winnipeg, whore it is  given  prominence.    Air.  McGregor  is  himself a Yukon official, he is one of  the   persons   against   whom   charges  have   been   made,   and   naturally   ho  knows  of  nothing  that, would   brine  the blush  of shame to  the cheek of  the innocent Yukon official.    His account of the manner in which ho, the  inspector  of  mines,   secured   a  claim  over the head o������ a Swede miner, is a  beautiful   specimen   of  literary   style,  although      not      affording      much  concise        information.        Air.      AIc-  Gregor,      however,      in      accordance  with the usual practice in such cases,  "'courts  the  fullest  investigation."   If  Mr.  Sifton  seriously  proposes  to  investigate, there is no lack of material  at his disposal.    Let him throw aside  all letters and communications which  . appear  on   the  subject  in  opposition  journals,  and  devote  himself exclusively to the complaints which are ventilated   ln   papers   which   have  faithfully supported the Liberal party.- In  . an-interview .published  in the .Globe  a  former resident  of  the Yukon  excuses the action of government officials  in staking out claims on the ground  that  officials  cannot   be  expected   to  live there unless they avail themselves  of outEide chances of making money.  Should   this   statement   be   true.   Air.  Sifton might consider the advisability  of   increasing   the   salaries     of     his  officials so as to obviate the necessity  "of   their   using   information   acquired  in their official capacities for the purpose  of  helping  themselves   to  other  peoples' property.  The Vancouver Province publishes  an interview with J. Lyon, a returned  miner, in which Air. Lyon says in  answer 10 a question as to the "future  of the country: "Well, if the Dominion government take off the royalty it  will be all right. The officials up there  have been doing a lot of crooked work  and many miners are leaving iheir  clianis to go to the other siele." Mr.  Lyon, who resides at Santa Rosalia,  Cal.. may be in a position to tell Air.  Sifton something to  his advantage.  The A'ancouver World publishes an  interview with Colonel Domville, M.P.,  in" which that gentleman states that  "on his arrival at Dawson ��������� he founel  things in a deplorable state, anel that  there seemed to be a general lack of  confidence in the administration."  Colonel Domville is a well known  Liberal AI.P., and should know whereof he speaks. Air. Sifton might learn  something from him.  F. E. Rutland of Dawson, under date  July 26th, gives his views or the situation in a letter which was published  in the Vancouver Province of Aug.  10th:  "The discontent at the mining laws,  the royalties and rapacity of the government officials is growing louelor  and more angry every day. N'o one  appears to expect to receive justice  unless he has a pull."  Will Air. Sifton be satisfied with Air.  .McGregor's general denial in the face  of such a charge as this ?  R. G. Grey. J.P.. of Plumper's Pass,  B. c, who is now at Dawson writes  under date July 12th. to Mr. XV. Harris  manager of the Wellington creameries,  a letter which appears in the Westminster Columbian (Liberal) of Aug.  10th, of which the following i.s an ex-  tract:  "The utmost corruption prevails  among all the government, officials,  and the best country has been staked  illegally by or for the officials, speculators, saloon men. etc.. anybody and  everybody but the regular prospector.  Things are in a horrible muddle, anel  I would not be surprised if there was  trouble yet. However, there is a strong  Canada's display at the Omahii Exposition is a big one.

Along'with the butter goes the cheese,  which last vear amounted to 1115.000.-  000 pounds, valued at $15,000,000.  Honey and maple sugar aro two other  staple products of Canada shown in  the exhibit.  The lumbei- exhibit is interesting  as well us instructive, There are some  oak, pine, poplar, birch, hickory, walnut, maple, cedar, and a score of other  varieties. One. of the most interesting  is ii slab cut from a log ot hard pine.  It is six foot across and Air. Alycrs  vouches for the statement that the  tree from which this plunk came measured 150 feet- to the first limb. In  addition to this, he declares that there  arc millions of acres of pine forests  in the north of lho Dominion that  have never been visited by tho chopper.  In the centre of the court is the  mineral display. Three large cases  are filled with rich specimens of gold,  silver, copper, lead. zinc, tin, iron, and  other metals from the gray sulphates  to the most beautiful and delicate  forms of crystallizations.

Loudon, August 3.���������In order J-'~o  relieve the tedium of confinement to  his room, the Prince of Wales has used  llie electrophone nightly to hear the  performances at the opera, and also  the order of divine service at one of  cily churches, . In connexion "\vijtli  lhis amusement, a correspondent asks  whether the use of the electrophone  does not portend increased absence  from church. Perhaps some light may  bo thrown upon the question by reference to the late Edward Bellamy's  Looking Backward. It will bo remembered that the hero of the social romance was supposed to havo beon  mesmerised into a deep sleep in 1S87  iind was restored in the year 2000. On  a Sunday after ho had recovered his  acquaintance with the world���������a very  different world, his host proposed to  remain at home and hear a sermon  by telephone. He asked him how he  could hear it it he stayed at home,  and the following was the reply:  "There arc still somo who prefer to  hear sermons in church, but most of  our preaching, like our musical performances, is not in public, but delivered in accoustically prepared  chanibeis.coiiuccl.cd by wires with subscribers houses. I soo by the papers  that Mr. Uiirton is to prcii-'- this  morning, and ho preaches only by telephone, and to audiences of 150,000  people." This bold prophecy seems  to bo on its way to fulfillment���������and  some preachers have a groat future  before them.  Thli. HOOLEY REVELATIONS  Air. Hooley made his first public  iipppearance in the bankruptcy court  this week, and today the public are  enabled to share some of the secrets  of company promoting. Air. Hooley  bought and sold businesses with an  astonishing recklessness, which must  have been accompanied by some degree of shrewdness that is not shown  in his evidence, anel ho succeeded according to his own account, by a system of wholesale bribery. He has  given the public to understand that  ho has been ruined iu a largo measure  by blackmail ho has boon obliged lo  nay to persons connected with certain papers. The most interesting  part of his evidence relates lo the pay  default iu the high court.  The plaintiff sought damages for  injuries and loss he had sustained in  the raid, in which ho held he had  been induced to take part by misrepresentation, 611 the part of certain officers of the Chartered company. The  fact of thore being no defence offered  showed that the case against Air.  Rhodes and his company was hopelessly bad, but Air. Adams' action,  who had brought the action, doubtless  quite deserves the soliatum he has  received. From the beginning to the  end, the Jamieson raid has been a  costly business for its promoters, who  it is safe to say, are noi likely to attempt anything of tho kind again.  Tho   revelations   mado   in   tho   examination of Air. Hooley have caused  a considerable sensation in the house  of commons, and there is much talk  as to further proceedings.   Jt is quito  certain that if members of the house  had been involved a public discussion  on  tho  subject would   have  been  inevitable.    As  it   is  there  is   a  great  deal of curiosity as to the courso the  peers  will   adopt.    Air.  Hooley  again  yesterday  made  a  largo  contribution  to the gaiety of the bankruptcy court.  At  the  outset he  bluntly  announced  that ho was not going lo retreat from  any of the statements made by hiin at  lhe previous sitting,    lie was absolutely prepared to prove them all..    To  show  this was" no  empty   threat,  ho  waved 11 chock in lhc air. bearing tho  endorsement,   it  was  said,   of  a well  known peer.   Ho was also good enough  to name  a  trio  of  gentlemen  whom  ho described  as  the "greatest blackmailers in London."    Tho excitement  gre.v as Air. Hooley accused Lord de  la AVarr of having attempted to bribe  him into silence by offering him ������1000  to alter tho evidence in his favor since  the last session of the court: and there  were  also some  sensational  passages  concerning the relations between  Mr.  Hooley and Lloyd's bank.    These disclosures ought lo show the investigating public how utterly worthless arc  titles  on  a   prospectus.    Air.   Hooley  was for a timo the idol of a certain  section of London socioty. Tho patronized him and lined their pocitets.   Ho  was a pillar of the church and a benefactor of St. Paul's cathedral.

The objection to investing money  in mines on the theory that, the Alining business is of';a transient nature  Is seldom urged these days by Intcl-  lige.-nt men. The average duration of  a paying mine is greater than that of  a profitable merchant.ilc business or  a manufacturing enterprise of any-  kind, when measured by the volume  of business done and the not receipts  realized. There arc mines that have  been producing ore for over -100 years,  and as yet no signs of a. transient nature, 'but it. is difficult to find a mor-  chantile business of any kind that has  withstood the ravages of time with  equal fortitude.���������Kast Kootenay Minor  The London daily papers are growl-  in,; over the turn affairs are taking in  China.

And hero Is the story ot the Astor place  riot, not ns tho ogeel Rialto lounger tell?  it, but ns it aotunlly occurred:  On Mny 25, 1800,' thoro disappeared the  Inst vestigo of Clinton hall, on Astoi  placo, Xew Tork city, nnd sinoo thon the  Mercantile Library building hns covered  its site. But this Clinton hall wns thi  original Astor Placo Oper.._Hous������. In  1841) lt wns tho finest theater in the city  did loentod in whnt was tho most intensely rospectablo resilience part.  In tho Astor library tliero is a pamphlet  published within n month nfter tho fated  nigho'bf Mny 10, 181'J, with this impress  ivo title page:  ACCOUKTOFTIIff,  ' TERRIFIC AND  FATAL RIOT  A-  T7IE  _**EW YOKK ASTOR PLACE OPKSA IlOUSft,  ON THE NIGHT OV 3IAY 10, 1810,-  wiTn the  QUARRELS OF FORREST AND MACREAD"J,  Includini; nil tho  Causes Which Led to Thol  Awful Tragedy,   Wherein an Infuriated Mob VVns Quelled hy tho  Public Authorities,  gndden Death or  Mutilation of More _l_u  Fifty Victims.  Tho causos which led to itnre ns follows.  In 1826 Edwin Forrest wns tho brlgh'  partlculnr stnrof Gilfert's Bowery theatei.  Methods wero crude, but tho financial ro  suits iit loast wero satisfactory. Tho actor  soon loft tho classic shades of tho Boweiy  and offered his famous prize of JoOO for it  tragedy. Mr. Stone's "Motamorn" wis  accepted anel later in another competition  Dr. I"irel's"Gliieliator."j  In 1S27 Macready, who was thon 43  yoars old. tho victim of a potty spirit of  fault finding, made Iris initial bow to un  American audience. But in Philadelphia  they interpreted some, of his caustio re-  mnrks as nn insult to thn public.  In 1S35 Forrest visited Europe nnd nfttjr  a long tour on tho continent nppeareel "is  Spnrtacns ln Drury Lano thnnter on Oct.  IT, 1S36. Ho met with success evcty-  __whe_e_nnd-ro_eivoel_.many_ _ourtosie<__frotn_  eminent literary men and from thoso of  his profession, particularly from Mr. Macready. On his return to tho "Unitod States  be wns feted at Philadelphia and offered a  congressional nomination nt tho hands of  the New York Democracy. It was In the  summer of this yoar he made his famous  Fourth of July oration.  In 1S41 William Charles Macready returned to America, but there wns then a  growing rivalry botwoon the two actors.  Mr. nnd Mrs. Forrest went to London' Id  1845 for a second timo to fulfill nn engagement. During their visit, which la_t-  ed two years, nn open rupturo occurred Jn  tho friendly personal relations thnt had  existed till thon betwoon - the two mon,  and to the subsequent zonl with which his  friends espossod tho American's quart ol  was due tho culminating unfortunate riot  of Astor place.  Tho English failed to renow tho cordial  reoeption they .hael previously tendered  Forrest, nnd, according to the chronicler  of that day, "the ungovernable tragedian  was beside himself."  At Edinburgh he visited the playhouse,  end it is said hissod.Maoready's Hani-  lot from a box. Tbe insult was tho cause  of a bitter newspaper controversy. Aftnr  this Forrest when attempting to play whs  hissed by tho entire audience, and later he  failed to socuro nn engagement in Paris.  Deeply humiliated, he returned home,  but tho Amorican press cheered- him with  sympathetic words, and tho light waxed  warmer.  Macready again crossed tho Atlantic tn  October, 1848, and on the SOth of that  month played in Boston. His reception  thore was disappointing, for. Forrest.'.-  friends wero present to avenge tho wrongs  suffered by tho Amorican - tragedian  abroad through tho Englishman's influ-'  enco, It was believed.  Maoready deoidod to oome to Kow York,  whoro Forrest was playing to crowdetl  bouses. JN'iblo and Hackett leased the Astor Place Opera House and billed "Macbeth" for May 7, 1849. Forrest's frlonds  were ln evidonco at tho first performance  and hissed the actor off tbe stage. Tho  special squad of policemen on.duty did  nothing.  Mayor Woodhull the next day. protested  against another performance, but the lessees Insisted on their rights, demanded  protootlon and roforrod to their $-00 license as the basis of tho claim. Helv.ctaut-  ly tho protootlon was finally granted.  The English actor had sonic supporter*,  ���������nd nroong thoso who earnestly requested  him to continue anel promised him an enthusiastic reception was Washington Irving.  In anticipation of trouble, however.  General Sand ford ordered out eight coin-  pan ies of militia, but there was not uny  Increase of the pollen forco.

Another timo sho will show you her  quilts, six or seven of tlicm foldeel away  neatly, ono npicco for each of tho children,  as sho says. "When do you do your scv  ing?" you ask her.  "Mostly in de night timo, when do Chilian is out de way an do mens is lay down  er gono hun tin."  "But you have no lamp?"  "No, but I keeps a good turn of fab  splinters an piuo knots handy, an doy  makes a good blaze to seo by. Days when  I does half task in do field I works 'bout  do houso. in do afternoon, but doro's do  wash in to do an do patchin an scrubbin  on one t'ing an nnuelder, Don, if I lias  new cloth, I makes brooches or frock, ono.

"I mostly makes do chillen a stirabout  or somo bread 'foro I start ont in do  niornin, an every night foro I lay down I  clip somo tatcrs in do ashes to dono slow  for dem. Den I gen'ally don't cook no  more till I como out do field at sundown.  When I git chance, I does muko cako an  sweetened bread if eggs is plenty."  "But you sell your eggs?"  "Yos.

I always keeps  u bottlo of kcroseno huudy, 'canso it so  good to drink for misery in do head or te  rub with when your j'ints is painful.  "I does mako sharp money out of my  butter, too, when do cow ain't gono dry,"  sho adds. .  The averago negro farmer who plant*.  his littlo one horso or two horse acreage  that he rents barely makes enough iricomo  to keep body und soul together. In tho  Hush harvest season ho earns lho equivalent of 40 cents a dfty. His wife, according to her interpretation, has to "turn  swift" in order to mako things hold out.  She buys-as little as possiblo and makes  uso of such resources as aro at hand. Even  food for the cow has to be considered, as  is evidenced by tho "going dry."  "If we eoulel mnko out to gi' Sook a  mash of cooked peas night an mornin,  sho would keep up her milk all do year,"  snys Sook's mistress, "but wo can't elo  dat nor rent no good pastur' Ian' noidcr,  uu in lie winter do grass what's growin  in spuro Ian' uin't much. You see we got  do mulo to . feed too." Thus sbo tells of  her simple needs. Tho negro housewife's  broom is mado of broom straw gathered  from tho fields and bound scourely with  strips of homespun. The scrubbing brush,  thnt plays an important part in tho weekly cleaning up, is made of shucks from  tho cornhouso pegged-into a ploco of  board with a long handle to it.

The  few remaining weeks of open water  ought to be taken advantage ot by  business men.  Thos. Stafford, a private in the 13th  infantry of the regular army, who  was murdered some weeks ago at  Porto Rico by Private I.adukc, of  the Second Wisconsin volunteors, was  a Canadian, having been born at  Niagara Falls.

Tho patching done  by theso women may bo classed as an art.  Every possiblo economy is practiced in  theso homes.

Tho negroes on plantations remote  from towns aro primitive in their mode  of lifo and remarkably thrifty.
