Under this  head   the  report of the'  public works committee presented  a*  week ago last'Saturday  on  the side-'  walk question was taken up.  On request of Aid. Gruhuni all the'  petitions on the question were then'  I'uiid by '.he clerk.  Aid. Kilpatrick moved  thnt thu re-*  pint be received  by  the council.    Ha  believed   that   the   mujority   of    the*  people   wished- for the  half frontage*'  tnx.    ne thought it should he adopted"-,  now.    Under   the  existing municipal  net it was no doubt difficult to  adopt'  the   principle   and    the    act    needed1  *  amendment.  Aid. Graham seconded  the  motion.-  Aid. Wells inquired whnt  hnd  hap-'  pened lo the motion of September 2nd*1  instructing   the   public   works     com-'   "  mitttee to proceed with the .construe-'  tion   of   the   sidewalk.    A   couple  of'  motions   were   then    hunted   np and*  read.  Aid. Brown  begged  the council to'  get to work.     It was no good hunting"  up petitions   and going over the  old  ground.     He     expected    the    public"  works   committee   would   have    had  something to place hefore the council.  Aid. Kilbalrick again  called  for an"  explanation   of  the.   intention  of-the', *.  council.     What   did   the^ " proposed   _  "  sidewalk" of the motion of Sept. 2nd  mean?   The public works coniiniltee'  wereqnite ready  to get to  work  as'  soon as they received definite instruc-"  tion. *~ '    " '      .     -  ? The motion was curried".  -.His worship begged  the. council  to',/  close the discussion  and adopt some'  scheme of building the sidewalk.  Aid.

As to the petitione tlipre was  only one to "which   the   council  need*  pay attention was that one  in "which--  the residents along the proposed route',,-  refused to pay the full frontage tax.  Aid. Graham thought if one pfetition*  .  was   recognized   all   should   be.   The"  hulk of the ratepaying  population re-,  sided west  of   Campbell   avenue and,  the people living iu that quarter vrould-  scarcely use the trunk walk that all.  ,  Aid. ' Kilpatrick    argued   tli it, the*  signature to the petition  against the* .  full   frontage    tnx   was got   iiy mis-    ,  representation nnd he could not there-"   .  fore pay" us  much  attention   as   Ald.-  McKechnie   did  to  it.    It was  never*  explained that  the city would  really"  he building the whole of at least one*  half of the sidewalk.  At this point the discussion  waxed- .  rather warm.    Aid.

The Chinese shacks -which were  burnt last Tuesday were destroyed not  by the cily police but by thc medical  hc-ilth o'iii.er. The occupiinf- hnd  received several previous wurniiics to  clean up tlieir houses of which no  notice whatever was taken nnd these  hovels were in siilIi a filthy condition  as to be a renl menace to lho health of  the tou h. Theie is Mime talk, most  probably without foundation, that the  Chinese in town have appealed for  redri-'s-s to their Consul in   Vancouver.  Knocked OfT thc Track.  The C. P. It. section foreman at  Clanwilliniii. John Mnk, went to sleep  on the ruilwuy truck on Monday Inst  und was knocked off by a passing  freight tiain. He luy by the side of  Ihe truck for 20 hours before he was  noticed by lho crew of another freight  train, which picked him up and fetched  him in town. Dr. Cross attended to  his wounds nud sent him to the hos-  pital. where he is at present und doing  well.  Fell Through a Snowshed.  Last Tuesday a section hand named  Wilson, while working on the. top of  a snowshed near Glacier, fell through  ,lhe roof of the shed on to the track  beneath and broke two of his ribs. He  was brought down here nnd his  injuries altonded to by Dr. Cross, who  lilaced him in the hospital.  niation required by  the  public  iyorks|  committee while Aid.  Kilpatrick  nnd  Graham had another establishing' the'  half frontage   tax' as   a   principle  in  building sidewalks.   The latter motion''  was put by the mayor in spite of tlie   r  protests of Aid. Crage that liis  should  i eceive precedence and  was  lost by 4.  votes to 2, Aid. Kilpatrick forming the'  minorit.

A S-..-.OER ON   ONTARIO.  The  MacGregor.   Mnn.,   Herald,  has  the following  ��������� Ten thousand of Frank Oliver's  sail of llie earth cam*, from Ontario  ivunin lbe pasL JO aays. '1 bey nre  a scaley lot, with omy a sprinkling  o������ me aorny handea agricultural laborer amongst tbein.

Needles to say the MacGregor Herald is a stauncu Liberal journal, says  tbe Guelph Herald. Only a Liberal  journal would so cheerfully slander  Ontario's sons. The young men who  go oui annually from this province  to aid the Manitoba farmers in securing their harvests, are ihe same  ���������lock that has made Manitoba what  H ia Where would the prairie province be today had she- not drawn  liberallv of the brawn and muscle ot  Ontario"? Many of the ouag men  ���������who go out on the harvest excursions  take up land and become permanent  residents of Manitoba. They receive  no government assistance, they pay  for everything they get; earn every  dollar they make. A reflection ou  tntlr character or habits is a reflection on the fairest province in lb-  Dominion, a province that has been,  is and' will be the cradle of tbe  Canaoian   people. The MacGrcgoi  Herald man's preference for tne  Doukhobors is suggestive of the influence that evil smelling foreigners  may exercise upon a weak brain and  _ sadly  depraved   taste.  THOUGHTS ON TWINE..  The small duty on binder twine lm-  nosed bv the Conservative government  Ssed to' be represented to the western  farmer as a monstrous evil. Ho used  to be told that if he would only place  a Liberal government in power he  would get his binder twine for ha.il  nothin," as the irksome duty woulci  ba totally abolished. The Liberal  party was returned to power; tbe  duty -was taken off binder twino, and  the result today Is that the price of  binder twine has increased from 8 to  14 cents par pound. Tho Canadian  market by the abolition of the duty-  has been placed at the mercy of the  United States combine. Tho Canacl--  ian Industry has been killed and  eharge what It likes for the twine.  The Morden Empire has been figuring out how much'the farmers of the  Morden district have . lost owing to  this binder twine job ot the government. And this is what it figures:  "The output of twine by the four  dealers of Morden for the present season is 330.000 pounds. It has cost  the farmers ot this vicinity $42,900 for  twine this season. Farmers in Minnesota using the samo amount would  pay $24,750 for their twine. This  startling difference can easily be ac-  cwnted for. The binding twine from  the state prison of Minnesota costs to  be manufactured 61-2 cents and is  gold for 7 3-5 cents a pound, the bintl-  "~������r twine from Kingston was-soid -by  the government to Bates &. Co., as Sir  Wilfrid Laurier says, for 4 cents ant.  k fraction per pound, and after passing through many hands indirectly to  the ������������������.rraer for 13 cents a pound. I_  other words so that a particular  friend-of the government might control the market the prison twine was  given to him on a. contract without'  exiling for tender..  "Had the government sold tee  twine direct io tho farmers through  the retail dealers, the saving would  have been 5 2-5 cents a pound or the  farmers ln tho vicinity ot Morden  would have $17,020 to" tho good at'the  end of this season after paying for  their twino or tho province would  have $345,000 to the gootl as a. saving  in binding twine alone; $545,500 more  paid on local bills each year means  something to the west."  According to the Morden Empire's  estimate, the farmers of Manitoba  have had taken out of their pock������ts  considerably over half a million dollars ln consequence of the government's job ���������1th Mr. Bates. When  they realise -is, the farmers of Manitoba will.begin to comprehend just s  little fraction of the benefits they are  deriving from free trade and a Liberal government.  More than ordinary interest, says  thc Eiceders' Gazette, centered about  the. canlc pens of the Chicago slock  vards last week when thc sale was  announced of a consignment of fat  cattle at the premier ligures of ������6.85  per .00 lbs; and the significance of  such a sale should not bo overlooked.There is a cause for congratulation among feeders in view of the  fact that while this oulside price has  only been paid in one insianco a  suflicient number of olher sales have  been made close up to such figures of  late to demonstrate continuance of a  maikct full ot encouragement for  thoso who arc fitting good calllc yet  to  conic  forward.  There   nre   always   prcsont   certain  collateral   influences  thai  temporarily  affect market prices���������such us demand  and   supply,   weather   conditions,   the  faith   or   emergencies   of   those   who  deal   in   meat   products���������and     these  cannot   he   safely   ignored   or   underestimated   by   students     ot   our   live  stock   markets.     But   there   are   bc-  vond   nnd  beforo  theso  certain  basic  facts which it will he even more dis  astrous     for     breeders       to   ignore,  Whether the general level  Is high or  low mere is always to be found considerable  range  in   quotations  of  actual  sales.    Buyers  are  usually good  judges and knowing what lhey want  generaly   get  it  by   advancing  prices  beyond  averages for tho time ruling.  And here the  intelligent breeder and  feeder     recognizes   ' his   opportunity.  Top prices are paid for animals most  nearly  approaching  the  standards  of  the recognized beef breeds.    To meet  this  purely  bred    sires    of the  bee:  animals   must   be   used   on   the   best  obtainable  dams,   the   progeny   of  no  others   will   respond   so   promptly   or  profitably   to   subsequent   troatmenti-*  however     liberally    bestowed.     Good  breeding     must   precede   liberal   and  intelligent feeding,  and only animal",  resulting from such dual efforts need,  bo  expected   to  command  top  prices.  What is just now especially apparent in tho cattle markets finds equal  emphasis all through the list of meal  yeilding animals.    Thc foundation for  prices   is laid hy the feeder, and un-  ess ho has looked woll to tho qualit"  of the    material employed the subse-  Itient work of fitting for tho marke'.  must  fall short ot  the fullest  possible   reward,   whether   bestowed   upon  ���������-.ho production  of    beef,    mutton  or  pork.  The days of graded  sires    are  numbered   as   far  as  top    prices  for  meat producing animals are concerned.      Such     sires   must  follow   their  colder   blooded   ancestry,   the   scrub,  into the merited oblivion from whicli  fhe  have   been     too    long   withheld.  Fortunately  the alternative  need  not  work even  temporary hardship.  Pure  bred sires   of   recognized   character-  bulls,   rams  boars���������of  all   meat  producing   types   are   within     reach   of  avery   man   who   aspires   to   become  a   producer  of   animals   that   may   he  most  profitably    fed    and   marketed.  And in making this selection there is  'atitude   for   full   expression"   of   preference   among     breeds      within   the  limit   of   safety,   as   the   top   o'   the  market   is   not   monopolized   hy' any  breed   of cattle,  hogs  or sheep.   Each  has   opportunity   for   premier   place,  and  right  well   havo  they  succeeded  in dividing thc honor of attaining it.  The   outstanding   fact   that   finds  emphasis in overy day's experience���������  whether on  the range,  in  the' breeding pen, the feed lot or on iho market���������is   this:     Breeding   counts   more  "orcibly than subsequent manipulation  with  animals   that   are    expected   to  bring the highest profits for feed and  labor,   and   the   brooder   who   enters  tho   competition   with     any     but    a  typical   sire  of ^undoubted     purity  of  breeding assumes a handicap that will  inevitably   hold   him    short    of   first  place in the market of his products.  Tvto weeks ago it was announced  tbat. the salary ot Yukon Commissioner Ogilvie had been increased to  $G,000, and that two of his subordinates had theirs raised to $5,000. At a  cabinet mooting last week it was decided to create a now oflice, that of  assistant Yukon commissioner, wilh a  salary ot $-1,000. All those offices aro  provided with residences, and Iheir  living expenses are paid by tho  government.  TWO TROPHIES  MfiST������f!   IS  BACK.  THE WORD "MAVERICK."  There is probably not one cow-  puncher in two hundred,, who can  tell where the word maverick originated, or how it was first appliod  to an unbranded animal. It has  been used by ranchers almost is long  as anybody can remember, and to  this day tho majority of people believe the proper definition io an unbranded cow or steer.  There is a little piece of history  connected with it which show-s how  the wor was first used as it is. In  the early days of Texas lived a man  -������~ho"o Dame was Samuel Maverick.  He owned immense estates and was  kno~~ra far and wide as the cattle  king. At one tlm. he had a claim  against a. stockman which ho could  not colleect, so accepted 400 head of  cattle at $3 a head in discharge of  ths debt.

Mr. Bergeron connects those , evidences or  jro^peiity   wilh   the     fact     that   Mr.  i'arte gives out dredging contracts,  io brokers, lawyers, druggists, and  otnar men, who have no dredges and  know nothing about the work.   These  private bar^ainem aro paid prices  that enable them to farm the job oul  to genuine contractors at large profits.  In one case the dredging cost nearly-  double the value of tho work in  the open market. The contractor in  this instance was a real estate broker  in Montreal, whose daughter had the  good fortune to marry M". Tarte's  SOn.  A few ot us still lingered iu the  smoking room at Frcshfor Friars, Dig-  by, Jack Fairholme and I hanging  back after tho rest had gone to bed.  It was my llrst. visit, and 1 had arrived lato that day. There was a  large party in tho house, hut I did  not know half of them.  When at last we broke up, .lack  Fairholmo said: "I'll tako you by a.  short cut. I know my way about;  1'vo been coming hero so often."  With implicit faith in his knowledge  of the country, wo followed our leader  across an open apace, whore a. whiff  of night air extinguished all our candles. In at a side door, up and down  two flights of stairs, in and out of  several corridors, till at last Jack  paused before a closed  door.  "Here you are, Reggy," he said to  me.     "This is where you live.''  I turned  the  handle and  went in,  the room was dark,  the*bllnds were  down, thc curtains close drawn. I felt  my way  toward      the      mantlepiece,  guided by the passage light streaming  through tho open .door.  "Confound it���������no matches!"  "Here, I  have,''  said Jack.  The  room,  now  lighted up,  looked  -strangely  unfamiliar.  It was not tho  .-oom where I had dressed for dinner.  Thoro  were   nono  of  my  belongings  about.      Tho  dressing  table   and   its  mirrors were draped in laco and pink  | ribbons;   there  were several tell  tale  I articles  to  be  seen���������a pair  of  silver  backed hair brushes, a hand glass in  silver frame, a number     of trinkets.  bracelet, rings and brooches, an ivory  box or two, and there���������not a doubt oi  it. lay a thick coil of reddish brown  hair.  Jack, who was with me at the dressing tablo did not wait. Ho blew oul  che candles and ran out, I at his  heels, only to find tho door shut in  my face, no doubt by Jack to spite me,  for I still heard him laughing on the  far side.  I was caught in a trap. Beforo 'I  could find tho door knob' and escape  from the room I heard a movement  in the direction of the bed; a short  pause ot stillness, then the swish of  some soft silken wrap and the clop  of loose slippers on the floor.  I had only one chance, one hope���������  that I might slip out hefore. she discovered me. But this was gone next  moment, for while I stood thore holding my' breath sho ran up against me.  There was a gasp, a halt scream, and  .hen she upbraided me by name.  Imediatcly, however, she opened the  door for me. and in a. fev,- short seconds the light from the passage showed me a tall figure In light, loose  drapery; then I turned and fled. Fled,  but '*���������--* so fast that I quite escaped s,  blow from some missile thrown after  mo. nnd it must have been by her.  Socmthing certainly struck me on  the back, and as I stooped to pick it  up I found a tiny bedroom slipper of  pale blue silk, embroidered in seed  pearls. T seized it, accepting it as an  omen ot good luck, as a token of  friendliness, perhaps forgiveness. Why-  else had she thrown it after me  It was not the only relic of that  night's escapade. "When by and by 1  50t back to my own room. not. without  a long se?.rch. ande mpt-ied tho poc-  a long search, and emptied the pockets of my smoking jacket I found  that I had" also carried oft the coil of  reddish brown hair.

Miss Fellowes responded to the appeal, but strangely. She did not  speak, only blushed deeply, a blush  that crimsoned even her neck and  shoulders. ",-  1 was seized with a sudden inspiration.  "Miss Fellowes.i* No answer. "Miss  Fellowes." No answer. "Pray listen, even if you will not speak. I  believe I have some of your property.  I should like to restore it."  "You would not be so base) so un-  gentlemanlika���������"  "Not the slipper," 1 went on calmly,  taking for granted I was right in my  line. "I shall keep that as a souvenir, it is treasure trove. But the hair,  you will want that at once. ��������� I cannot think how you have got on without it all this time.''  "O, Captain Phayro! How can you  ���������why should you think���������what have I  dono to deserve this?" She almost  gasped for breath as she spoke, and  tho tears were noar her flno eyes.  "Why do you cut me? Do 1 deserve that? You know it was not  my fault originally. Last night you  accepted my apologies���������'*  "Captain Phayre, you are really too  terrible.     That is not my false hair."  "But it was in your room "  "That was not my room. That, was  auntie's room. She is a bad sleeper,  and sometimes likes to chango her  bed. So last night she. took mine  and  T  hers.''  "So It's hers���������the hair, 1 mean?"  "H���������sh! She may hoar; she would  never forgive us.*'  "Doesn't sho know?"  "Nothing, not a syllable. I hope  sho never may. ir.

WAR  CORRESPONDENCE  London, Sep. 25.���������An attempt to  hold a pro-Boer anti war demonstration at Trafalgar Square London on  Sunday resulted in a drastic failure.  Thousands assembled, but not to support the speakers. On the contrary  the crowd waved Union , Jacks and  sang the national anthem and "Rulo  Britannia'' like mighty invocations.  Tho speakers who wero quito inaudible were received with groans, decayed apples and eggs and other rais-  slls. Chamberlain was cheered and  Kruger hissed. Thc list ot speakero  which included none of special influence, most ot them being labor leaders or socialists, or members ot tho  Peace association, had no opportunity  to address thc crowds. They were  saluted with execrations .is soon as  they mounted the platforms and were  obliged to stand, smiling complacently, during the singing of the national  anthem, and the wild cheering for Mr.  Chamberlain. Their attempts to put  their resolutions to a vote were the  merest of dumb shows. Henry Hynd-  man, socialist leader, was a particular  object of animosity and was menaced  with a forest of walking sticks when  he tried to speak. The shouldering  of a soldier and a marine with thoir  hands clasped in procession around  thc square provoked frantic enthusiasm and was altogether an impressive incident, the multitude bursting  into the song "Soldiers of the Queen."  Finally the mounted police were called  out to clear the .Square and batons  were freely used. In consequence of  tbe organized interruption tho demonstrators purpose holding a public  meeting at an early date in one of tho  largest metropolitan halls.  England Still Temporizing.  London, Sep. 25.���������Tho. correspondent ot The Tribune cables the following regarding Friday's cabinet meeting: ".No retreat. No provocation,  but more troops to the front. That is  the brief summary "of the cabinet  meeting. The continuance of negotiations with the Transvaal on" former  lines is not considered desirable and a  fresh start is to be made as soon as  tho ministers have a measure in hand  for a deliberate review ot the whole  ���������situation. Meanwhile the military  forces in South Africa are to be increased by 10,000 or 20,000 men. The  Transvaal government is to be courteously informed that tho ministers require time tor reconsidering the subject of England's relations with the  Dutch'���������^"Mic and the door iB not to  he closed against diplomacy if Kruger  wi*hes to make fresh, overtures. The  ministers are determined not to provoke a declaration ot war, especially  when they are not - in readiness for  " hostilities, but they will not modify  the terms of the last communication  ������enl out" by Chamberlain. ,  Kruger Must Decide"  London, Sep. 25���������Never at any. atas*  of the Transvaal crisis has peace or  war rested so entirely in the handa ol  Kruger.     The longer he delays hi������ decision the better are the chances for  peace." He knows to what extent ne  can rely on the section of South Afrlea  to uphold him. ' He realizes that tho  British will, if possible, avoid a conflict until the last transport lands her  men, and he is'too wil? a leader not  to know the military advantage that  comes to the aggressor.    His appeals  to the foreign   powers to   intervene  haye  apparently  been'1 hopeless,  but  his effort* to drag in the Orange Free  State have, however," been successful,  and if   he honestly intends .   to defy  Great Britain he will never     have a  better opportunity than the present.  It'is such reasoning which is uppermost in the minds ot thinking British  and which      prompts them     to fear  ���������thatr-before-ne3t-weok's-cabinet-meet-_!  ing the Boers will have passed over  the Natal border.     If they have not,  there will he much ground for believing that Kruger intends an ultimate  hack down, though   whether     he is  strong enough    to carry his     people  with him in such a course is left .to  grave doubts.     The Transvaal negotiations are now so long     drawn out  that though  tho papers devote  great  space to them popular Interest seems  to be flagging.     The government organs, while regretting the attitude of  the Orange Free State, point out that  its open hostilities     will     eventually  prove advantageous    in ridding Great  Britain of the annoyance of having: a  presumably     neutral,   but   - really' n  hostile power so close to the scene of  action and enabling Great Britain to  add a free state without encountering  foreign protests of accusations of inhuman aggrandizement.

DREYFUS AND HIS CHILDREN  A:   Dangerous   Reaction     Caused   by  Meeting Them  London, Sept 25.���������The Paris correspondent of the London Times "says:  Meeting with his children has caused a serious reaction in the condition of Dreyfus, and it is feared that  it may be necessary to send him to  Malta or Madeira."

Tho_ department has _been investigating tho matter and have decided that"  it will bo utterly impossible to send  this class, of mail matter over-'the  ice.  London, Sept 28.���������A special despatch from Pretoria, says that the  members of the A'olksraad, believing  that the British notes are intended  to gain time for the concentration of  troops, urge the government to adjourn the Raad immediately and to  send Great Britain a note declaring that further mobilization will be  regarded   as  an   unfriondlyact.  Trenches, earthworks and sand bag  defences are being erected in all the  available approaches to tbe capital.  Troops are steadily moving and arriving in Natal.  Text  of  Chamberlain's  Letter  London, Sept. 26.���������The officials of  the foreign office yesterday gave out  the text of tho letter of the secre-  ary of state for the colonies, Mr.  Chamberlain, to the British high  high commissioner in South Africa,  dated September 22nd. The British  reply expresses the regret that hei  majesty's offer of September has  been refused, and says: "The object  her majesty's government had in view  in the recent negotiations has been  staled in a manner which cannot admit of misapprehension; viz., tu  obtain such substantial and immediate representation for tho Uitlanders  as will enable"~them to secure for  themselves that fair and just treatment which was foimally promised  them in 1SS1, and which lier majesty  intended to secure for them when  she granted the privileges of self-  government to the Transvaal. No  conditions less comprehensive ihan  ttose contained In the telegram of  September 3rd can be relied on to  offset this refusal. The refusal of the  South African government to entertain the offer thus made, coming as  it does after four months of protracted negotiations, themselves the climax of five years ot extended agitation, makes it useless to further pursue the discussion on the lines  hitherto followed, and the imperial  government is now compelled to consider the situation afresh and to formulate a new proposal for the final  settlement of the issues which have  been created in South Africa by the  policy contantly followed for many-  years by the government of South  Africa. They will communicate the  result of their deliberations in a  later despatch."  In a later communication dated  September 22nd the imperial government takes up the charge of breach  of faith insinuated by secretary of  state -Reltz,* September IG; "Which,-.'  it is pointed out, "we cannot pass  over in silence." Chamberlain then  says: "The proposals made by the  South African republic in its letters  of August 19th and 20th, were uot  induced by suggestions given by a  British agent from the state attorney,  as claimed, and that on the contrary  the state attorney sounded the  British agent both in writing and in  conversation as to the conditions  upon wheh the imperial government  would ..waive its Invitation to adjourn the inquiry and as a result of  these communciations, these proposals were made by the South African  government in . these letters. It is  impossible that. the South African  government could have "had any  doubt as to the imperial government's  answer to to the conditions named  and my reply was actually the same  as the British agent had foreshad  owed to the state attorney and which  heretofore they must have anticipated  making their proposals.

l;i_l is one of considerable importance
to Ri'vi'lMoko. ^Everybody is of one

Mr. Beach's company is willing to
supply this requirement Iiy placing a
st earner on tin: river nnd in his opinion
the inducements olTcred in the Genelle
agreement are satisfactory and will
lie (urcpl.-ilile lo lhe company. Consequently we may expect a steamer
