This is nil right for a start,  though Mr.'Wells does notsny whethei  or no he wiii advise die government lo  help the steambciut project out. At  any rule he is the first, Minister ol  Lands and Works, who has taken up  lhe matter ofthe development, of the  immense resources of the country  lying north ol" Kevelstoke. witli anything resembling an appreciation ol  the importance of the itnilei taking  ���������mil he anil his -supporters. in lhe  Kootenay press may rest quite assured  that so long as he keeps on this course  he will leceive every support, from Llie  people of Kevelstoke of any shade of  politic.  The Hkkalii would also like to call  the allei'tion of the.-e journalistic  Mipporleis of Mi. Wells than Revel  s-toke in urging I hut development of  the North Kuoten.'iy district lie made ;i  plank in the policy of the Pi ovincial  GoveriiMient. are not, pie.'.sing upon  them a project of merely local importance, advantageous though it doubt  less would be to lhis town. We have  seen wil bin the past iyw yeais wh.1,1  tlie opening up of South Ko'itV'ii.iy has  liie.int to British Columbia.' II. is not  necessary to point mib this obvious Lie.  in detail. Well, the people of, lie vei  swike.irc .i unit in the conlideni lu'hel  that the story ol Hn-sl.ind and Nelson,  of the bloc.in aiul Lai'de.iu '-'ill be  repe.ileil.il not exceeded, when the  enormous ua: in.il resources illicitly  known to exist in the Big Bend and  the C.inoe river di-tiii Is are rendered  accessible. . We :ne not asking the  government to give us comumnicition  with a oroinising mme ortivo or even  a good mining camp or two, the open  ing up of which would inciely help lo  swell to some extent the volume of  Revelsloke'-. business. We are asking  lliem Io open an immense disliui,  (���������Mending foi some 200 miles noi I ll of  the main line, a di-lrict ol the most  varied and valuable resources, a district which contains every kind ol  mineral wealth, placer and quail/, gold  fields, copper, lead and silver ores, the  most extensive deposits of lirst class  -mii'ii-in-Oanada,-foi ests-of-llie-liiie-L  Umber equal to supply lhe demands of  Kooleimy for half a century, ai"l  agi iciiliur.il and grazing lands which  will yet, furnish the chief source ot  supply of I,ii-iiiing product- for the  ill ,1'kets of Kooleiiay. These resource*.  uie at. present lucked up and rendered  useless for lack of proper methods of  transportation. For, the last ten or  twelve ypi.rs government, after government has been urged time and again  tii take the matter up and notniug has  been ;dnne. Appropriations have  been made for this purpose and on one  pretext or another withdrawn. And  we stand now with ahoul three and >i  half miles of mad built to i-.how for all  I hese years of effort. It is scarcely >o  be wondered that we area little touchv  on t fie Riibji ct. And the pre-s of  South Kootenay uud pailicularly of  Nelson, which fought so long and  persistently the same battle precisely  to get the lesourcps of tlnii district,  appreciated at their proper value' by  officialdom of all kinds, should be the  last to throw cold water on the work  which the people and newspaper* of  ^Kevelstoke are doing under precisely  similar circumstances of official delay  and discouragement. We are not  asking the Provincial Government to  do anything unreasonable, but we do  ask thein to believe that in urging  upon them the necessity of opening up  North Kootenay the p-nnle of R.-vel-  sloke iiave good gi'i'iind-i for the faith  in that country which is ������������������������ them, to  adopt wil houi delay this siipieme^lask  as purl of their settled policy and to  push it on vigorously to completion.

THE KIHC3'  MESSAGE  and  Ex-  Mr. Wells on the Big Bend Road.  On the ILukm.d announcing that the  Chief Couiinissioner of Lands and  Works, Hon. XV. C. Wells, had stated  in an interview thaL he was opposed to  the opening up of the Big Bend  country, we placed ourselves in loiii-  municiition with Mr. Wells on the  matter, feeling sure from the opinions  we had previously heard him expiess  that he had been misrepresented.

AN ANGLO-GERMAN ALLIANCE  The idea that Great Britain occupies a position of "splendid isolation which appears to "have been held  by a number of. European countries���������  notably France���������has been dispelled  by the unequivocal demonstrations of  cympathywhieh have heen called forth  by the death of Queen'Victoria. Of  course some cf these expressions are  merely formal and have only tbe significance attacned to tile situation,  but others snow that Great Britain  has many foreign friends. The attitude of the Emperor of Germany  shows that come what may he and  his people are tbe allies of the country to which they are bound by so  many ties. Dunns the progress of  the war in South Africa. France,  Holland and even Russia have not  heen wanting In unfriendly demonstrations. Indeed it is now well  known that Kruger nad been led to  bslieve that he would receive assistance from one or more of these  powers in the way of intervention.but  d&spite the fact that they did not interfere a strong .feeling of hostility  was known to exist. The present  attitude of the Emperor has, however,  show that Great Britain can at least  rely upon the moral support of Germany. The Kaiser has on previous  occasions given evidence tnat he was  not altogether blind to tne advantages of an Anglo-German alliance,  ind indeed the interests of the two  countries are very similar. Germany  of late years hns come to the front  as a country of high and advanced  civilization and her army as a fighting machine is second to none in the  world. With Britain's navy and the  army of Germany the two countries  could face a universe tn arms. And  such an alliance would therefore bo  one of the best safeguards possible  for the peace of the world. There are  not wanting sentimental reasons  either for such an alliance. The  ^p������ople_oLi..oUi_ieoiintries_have_spriing=  from a common stock. The two  Royal families are bound together by  the ties of blood and soldiers of Britain and Germany have gone to victory together at Blenheim. Malpla-  quet and at Waterloo.  It may be argued that the attitude  of. the Emperor of Germany towards  England during the past few weeks  has been merely of a personal nature,  hut Royalties never take any attitude  that is not of International significance, and it may therefore be pre-  Mitned that the Kaiser is disposed to  be- friendly.  It is sincerely to be hoped that au  Anglo-German alliance may he consu-  reated at no very distant date.  time, left swearing that he would return   In.   three , days "and   kill all the  Amoses.     Accordingly,   Vaughn  went,  to the ranche on which he waa working in the     Territory,     procured.   a  brace  of  six shooters,  and    on    th������  appointed  time went back  to Caney.  The Amoses, barricaded in their joint  and  armed with, three double barreled shot guns, were waiting for him.  Vaughn  hitched  his horse,  and pulling his six shooters, began firing and  walking toward  tho Amoa joint. Thp  Amoses replied with a broadside from  their shotguns,  and when   the smoke  had cleared away Vaughn lay in    tho  street   with   his   body   full   of   buckshot, and Tom,Amos lay on the floor  with  his  jaw  shattered  hy  a  bullet.  Blood   poisoning  set  ia  and  in   four  weeks  later  Amos  was  buried.      On  the   other   hand,   Vaughn,    .who   was  thought     to     havo     been     mortally  wounded,   recovered,     and     in     two  months was able to go to -work again.  Vaughn  was  a crack shot and the  Amoses  lived   ln  constant*,  terror    of  him,   and   after   tliey   found   that  ha  had   gotten   well   they   swore   out   a  warrant for his arresi���������which was an  unusual   proceding iu thoso days.    A  deputy   sheriff,   who    was    a    warm  friend  of  the joint keepers,  arrested  Vaughn, and put the Amos������s and one  of their friends on the force to guard  him thc  night after the arrest.  During  the  night,  while  the deputy waa  asleep,   the  Amoses shot and    killed  Vaughn.    They claimed  thai he    had  irled   to   escape.     However,   three   of  the flve shots  which  had pierced the  dead  man's hotly were firod  after ho  had   fallen���������so   the'  direction    of  the  bullets  indicated.  The Amoses at that time did not  know of the existence of Charles  Vaughn���������who was employed on a  ranche ln Texas���������and, after they had  killed dim, settled down to quiet  life. Wilher remained in Caney, and  Dennis Amos, with his young wife  and child located on a farm just east  of Cedarville. A friend of Jim  Vaughn In the meantime notified  Charles Vaughn of the manner tn  which his cousin had been killed,  and Charles thereupon hoarded the  next train for Caney. He remained  there a day and by inquiry learned of the whereabouts of the Amoses.  On the second day after his arrival  ho met "Wilber in a drug store, and  walking up to him informed him  that he was there for the purpose of  killing him. Amos reached for his  gun, but Vaughn was too quick.for  him iand sent a 45 calibre bullet  through his brain. The dead man had  hardly struck the floor before Vaughn  was. on a horse riding at breakneck  speed . toward  the town.  Dennis Amos was eating dinner  when Vaughn reached his house, and  without introducing .himself the  infuriated cowboy then opened fire  and sent -a bullet through Dennis'  breast and another through his head.  The Texan then picked up the child  and dashed its brains out against  the floor., He also flred a shpt at the  woman, but she escaped' into a bedroom, and Vaughn, thinking his pursuers were close upon him. mounted  his horse and rode away. Although  a posse pursued him for two days  he was not overtaken.and his whereabouts had never been known from  that day'to the day of his death. Yesterday, when, after ,a six week's  struggle with fever, he found that he  had to die. he tolci his attendants  that he was Charles Vaughn and narrated the story,, which the older residents of this town know to be true.

Jj...,   Alana;:! ilerjlsteka Branch.  The financial world o������ the United  States���������and by reflection of Great  Britain and Canada���������is much excited  by the remarkable stories of railway  deals which have beoen ascribed to  Mr. James J. Hill. It may not be  generally known that this man���������Mr.  H1U���������the man of millions, is a Canadian, and that all his success has resulted from his own exertions. He  was born .on a small farm near  Guelph. In Upper Canada. September  13, 1838. His father was of that  sturdy race of Scotch-Irishmen, and  his mother a Scotch-woman, both frugal, Industrious and religious, und  they had a hard sturggle to win  livelihood from the soil of a new  country and rear a growing family of  children. Mr. Hill's early life waa  precisely that of other farmers' sons  ot the period, with lltlte schooling  and plenty of hard work on the farm,  with the chores and cattle. Ho succeeded, however, In getting a fairly  good education, even to a slight knowledge of Latin, but when at 15 years  of age his father died, be was unable  to prosecute his studies further, and  was ��������� forced to take up \vlth work lu  a country store.  When but 18 years old. in 1856.  young Hill set out to seek his fortune  in the States, as so many other Canadian lads have done, both before and  since his time. He remained for  only a short period ln thc east, and ln  July 1856, reached St Paul, Minn.,  then a thriving little river town of  5,000 Inhabitants, in the remote North  West. No railways had penetrated  to the city at that time, and the only  means of reaching lt waa by tho  broad, flat, stern wheeled steamboats  that plied the Mississippi. His flrst  employment was with the Duhuaue  and St. Paul Packet company, the  agent of which at St. Paul was the  firm of J. W. Bass & Oc. At this  stage in his career young Hill turned  his hand to anything, loading cargo  as a laborer, acting as clerk and levee  agent, as foreman of gangs and doing  whatever presented itself to be done.  He was Indefatigable and obliging,  and mastered all the details of river  transportation, and in 1865 he waa  offered and accepted the agency ot  the North Western Packet company.  In tho meanwhile railway communication had been opened " wltth St.  Paul, and Mr. Hill, while still continuing ' as a river' transportation  agent, became agent of the St. Paul  and Pacific railway, handling all the  freight received from and transferred  to the river bank. In 1869" he  formed the firm of Hill, Griggs &  company, which engaged in both the  transportation and the fuel business,  and which took to St. Paul the flrst  coal ever used there for fuel. The  partnership lasted until 1875, and, in  the meanwhile, in 1870. Mr. Hill em-  harked in the flrst venture which was  destined to make him famous. This  was the establishment of tne Bed  River Transportation company, which  opened up the first regular communication between St. Paul and Manitoba  and developed the great gram resources of the Red River valley, "the  bread basket of the world."  The St. Paul and Pacific railway,  which had been operated in connection with thc river lines in which Mr.  Hill was interested ln, either aa agent  or owner, defaulted on Its bonds in  1S73. This' afforded Mr. HU! his  great opportunity in the Sine ot railway development. He knew the vast  resources of the Red River country  and of Manitoba, and he realized that  water transportation was doomed.  Many another man ln his position  would hs-.v regarded ths taiiure cf  lhe railway as tho failure of a 3j-s-  tcm. or of f.n idea, and stuck to his  river steamboats;. Bot not so with  Mr. Hill. The. fault, he concluded,  was not with the railway, but with Its  shocking construction, worse management ancl grossly exhorbitant debt.  There were outstanding $27,000,000  of bonds cn the St. Pr.v.l and "Pacific  railway, a majority of which wero  held in Amsterdam. Mr. Hill's fortune at the time amounted to about  SI00,000. How to acquire thc S27,-  000,000 of bonds with z. capita! of  $100,000 was the problem Mr. Hill had  to study. In his transportation business in Manitoba county he had become acquainted with -Sir Donald A.  Smith, chief commissioner o" the  Hudson's Bay company (now Lord  -Strathcoii������7f���������^To���������Sir���������Donald���������Smith-  he submitted the proposition and unfolded his plans. The hypnotic  power highly developed in later years  won tie day. Sir Donald Smith  became a warm adherent of the project. So did George Stephen, president of the Bank or Montreal, and  now Lord Mount Stephen, ancl with  them was associated Commodore Norman  A.   Kittson.  iir. Hill's confidence, ia the undertaking was such that he invested  every penny of his fortune in the  enterprise. For fivo years he labored unceasingly, nnd at times It looked as though his $100,000 was lost. But  fie persevered, with his negotiations,  and finally, in ISTfi, had acquired control of the bonds of the St. Paul and  Pacific railway. Then the mortgage  was foreclosed and Mr. Hill and his  associates came, into possession of the  property, which during the long re-  reivcrship had dsgeneraterl to a condition little hotter than that predicted  hy Jay Oonld of a certain property,  "two streaks or rust through thc  grass."  Tho road was promptly reorganized  under the name of tho St. Paul, Minneapolis and Manitoba, and construction work wont on rapidly, pushing  out and extending, tapping a wheat  country hero, and a lumber country  there, and take a port at somo other  place.  From this property of' only 380  miles in length In I87f) was evolved  the Groat .Northern system, with its  5,411 miles nf road. Tho samo plan  that was followed In building tho .180  miles of original rond has bean followed In building the entire T,HI  miles, and the result is a lower capital stock per mile, and a lower funded debt per mile than any other  system of vast mileage and importance ln r.h������ United ,St;ite������ mui the  whole f.Miin iinr-- boon iincomnilshod  with land jrrsmtn or subsidies, except  a small portion In th������ .State of Minnesota.

Between the  nobility of Britain, on the one hnad,  and the humble Great Northern fireman on the other, are the Morgans,  Rockefellers, Kennedys, and the vast  capitalistic interests of the United  States, all reposing confidence in this  self made, many sided man, and following eagerly where he leads.  Not so many years ago Mr. Hill  was regarded by some of the Wall  street contingent with whom he came  In contact in somewhat ln the light  of a charlatan. Not that there was  anything that suggested the Juggler  or mountebank about the somewhat  short, stocklly built man whose deep  chest and broad shouldres are surmounted by a grand head, covered  with a shock of lialr. and a race  framed In a tangled beard, irom  which two glinting eyes peer ous  undpr bushy eyebrows, but then Ue  had made the statement that a railway could be run and maintained at  from 50 to 55 per cent of its earnings  and probably less. It waa a startling  proposition.  "Ridiculous," cried Wall Street,  "Absurd," "Nonsensical." "Mere bookkeeping." "Jugglery of figures." With  one accord railway and financial experts turned to their books and to  their records, ond showed that tho  average of operating expenses to earnings of nil the roads ln the United  States was hut a trifle short of 70 per  cent, and that when roads were operated tor less they were peculiarly  favored, or had been marked out for  Inevitable bankruptcy and the protecting care of courts and receivers  Ocular demonstration and practical results bore fruithfully, and the  influence of this Canadian genius  spread apace.

H������ had wrougt  a revolution ln the methods of nprrii-  ting his own property, and he is  working a revolution now In the  management of t!������������ raiWays of the  United States.  What is the secret of Mr. Hill's success in railway management? was the  question asked the other day of a  auaiber of bankers of New York city.  "Common honesty, I should say," replied one man. "H'a stockholders  know and believe !n hint. They know  '-.hat they will get as much out of the  property as he gets. Everything goes  to the stockholders of the Great  Northern road.

And there is not a tlKurij relative to  the cost of anything; that" he cannot  give you off hand."  "Out of his head?" was asked.

Who Held Her Was Shot���������In  Danger at Sea.  The Queen had a number of narrow  escapes from death by accident.  When onlv six months old:'her parents, the Duke and Duchess of York,  had taken the royal child to Sid-  mouth, Devonshire, for change of air.  A boy shooting sparrows accidentally  discharged his gun opposite a window at which a nurse holding the  infant in her arms, was standing.  The glass was completely shattered  and the nurse's sleeve was riddled  with shot, yet both the nurse and the  baby'princess escaped injury.  Four years afterward the pony carriage in whiah she was driving upset  and would have fallen on her had it  not been for the promptness with  which an Irish solider, who was passing by, seized the little girl's frock  and tossed her up into his arms. Curiously enough the solider was not  aware until 54 years had passed that  the child whose life he had saved had  grown to he Queen of England.  Soon after the coronation, irhen  Her Majesty was . driving ��������� with her  mother near Highgate Hill, the horses  took fright and ran - away. They  were stopped by a publican.who.when  asked to name his reward said: "Permission t'i hoar the Queen's arms on  my sign." Next day he received a present of a pocket hook from Her Majesty, .of wliich he laconically, observed that "it was _ heavy, very  heavy."

When a- girl of 14. during a yachting excursion, she was dragged from  under a falling mainmast by a'pilot  named Saunders, .and so saved from  death.  r.irly twc. years after this the royal  yacht collided with :i vessel named  fhe .Mistletoe, and two peon'.e "wore  drowned within sight of the Queen.  Her Majesty was in a railway collision in 1856.  In all these trying experiences the  Queen maintained her self possession;  and she has observed that her one  thought on such occasions-has been  the regret at leaving certain duties  in which she was then engaged unfulfilled.

The capture was effected after an ^.'criting  chase of many miles. The posse  comprised about 30 ot the most prominent��������� residents-of���������Madison���������county-  The murderer was mounted on a  superb animal and had evidently ridden furiously all night ln order to  put as great a distance as possible  between himself and his pursuers.  Wolff stopped at a ranche house  along the road and secured something  to eat. He told the farmer he was  looking for a bunch of cattle that  he had .lost. He hastily devoured  some food and remounting his horse,  rode away as fast as the animal  could carry him. '  Shortly after noon tho posse spied  him. Ho endeavored to avoid them  hy making long detours, but the determined men were not so'easily  hoiked, and thoy spread out in all  directions. Seelnir that trere was no  possible hope for his escape, and  knowing that resistance meant death,  he quietly surrendered. There is n  strong feeing here to lynch Wolff.  At -1:20 today n large body of men  started out to meet the posse.  Particulars   of  the  Tragedy  Further particular's have been  learned of thc murder of Sheriff John  Summers of Madison county, who  was shot at the latlor's cabin in  Morgan gulch, 18 miles from Virginia City,  in  Mitdlson  county.

Id all of which he affords  cause of satisfaction to both friends  and enemies. He appears���������in the  light of his opinions and sentiments  (in so far an these books express  them) a man of singular superficiality whose pretensions to omniscience brings Into a strong and un-  flatterina light his distinguishing  imperfections. These imperfections  mav not be visible to Mr. Davis' admirers by reason���������merely���������of thoso  Intelectual limitations which permit  him to claim admirers In the country of his blrtK  In reading "With Both Armies"  one must be at a loss to determine  whether Mr. Davis Is the more remarkable for hU faulty judgment or  his bad tasta Lot us appeal to himself.  "When the war opened I felt that  sympathy for tne Boer which on������  naturally holds for the under dog  * * ��������� But in spits of this sympathy and in spite of the wishes of  the editors for whom I was acting  as correspondent, and wno desired  that I should follow the war from  the Boer side.

And I believe that the people ot  England, who wero betrayed into  this war by Mr. Chamberlain and  Mr. Rhodes, who misrepresented  facts, who suppressed the truth, who  dangled before.their eyes advantage!  they will never enjoy, and frightened  them with evils which never threatened and which never will exist���������)  believe if these people could learn th*  truth, by three months of enquiry ln  the Transvaaal. which was tho way  I learned It their sympathies would  be  much as mine"  On pages 9 to 105 Is a vast dea)  of bathos wherein Mr. Davis indulges  his delight in the simplicity and pastoral beauty of the Boor character,  as exhibited;, may he parentheticallv  remarked, by those officials and bura-  hers who met Mr. Davis In his capacity as a Yankee war correspondent.   Mr. Davis again says:  "To a great power such as Great  Britain, this war should be only an  incident. But, strangely enough, it  is the Boer who appears to consider  it an incident, an unfortunate occurrence requiring severity on his part  and entitling the. punishment of a  wayward and mistaken enemy. He  discusses the war toleranciv and  patiently. He expresses a creat pltx  that such fine fellows as the English  soldiers should have come so far to  be killed. ��������� * What makes the remarkable .resistance which ,the Boer  has shewn to the British forces the  more remarkable is this fact of his-  leisurely indifference to it all " *  At Spion Kop the attack on'- the hill  was made by 40 men. so few indeed,  so they claim, that one of the English  colonels surrendered, and then or*  seeing, when the Boers left cover, lo  what a small force he was opposed,  threw down the white flag and cried.  'No, we'll not surrender,' and fired  on the Boers who were coming ud to  receive his rifles. .* * But thc comment the - Boers ��������� made on, this  'treachery' was: 'It was probably a^  mistake. Perhaps some one without  authority" raised the white flag and  the colonel did not know lt. He  wounded 17 of our men, but I believe  it   was   a   mistake."     *     *  And thus Mr. Davis proceeds, presenting endless illustrations of Boer  courage, magnanimity and kindness  to the enemy, and launching into  warm heroics anent the tremendous  odds, 10 and 20 to 1. which the  Beer was successful in opposing. He  draws a fine sketch of British hysterics and Boer stoicism, and offers  ' sage advice to Great Britain: its  impotent statesmen and war office,  concerning   the   exaggerated   imDort-  his Boer instructors possessed some  lltlte wit; some little part, perhaps, of  the useful wisdom of the serpent;  and that the views, which they pressed upon him those which they believed would-be useful to him and  satisfactory to his "editors." Did it  ever enter vaguely into the mind of  Mr. Davis that Sir Alfred Milner  might be almost as capable as himself  of advising the British government  upon matters South African; and that  the British people would prefer Sir  Alfred's view (the product of the sustained and comprehensive study of  high Intellect) to the "three months"  product of an observation such as  persons of Mr. Davis' calibre are  capable of applying to the situation?  Mr. Davis' "pathos of Boerdom,"  and his somewhat maudlin and incoherent protest against the preoccupation of the British people in  this "Incident," this picayune and  petty war, discover the writer of  "With Boer Armies" to be equally an  expert In ethics as in "militarism."  Mr. Davis soars too high; he composes too much. We would recommend him to proceed from particulars  to generals, and flrst study the particulars carefully We would, in all  good faith, suggest that he give attention to "small things;" and that,  as a preliminary effort, and for his  ultimate advantage, he shall allow  himself to figure humhlv in this category.  CHILD'S SUICIDE  .MOBBED IN LONDON.  Mrs. Langtry Unpopular. London Mobs  her for not Stopping her Play  soon  Enough after Queen's Death.  Mrs. Langrty was mobbed at Bal-  hani, London, on Tuesday night, and  her carriage was wrecked because  sbe continued playing The Degenerates at the Duchess theatre after the ^  Queen's  death  had been    announced. , an^which^thi^m^g  .^.^.^  Qf  A Boy of Six Years Kills Himself With  Acid���������A Story of Pathos  Only six years of age, but filling  the grave of a suicide is the fate of  lltite Carl Sri.ith, up to yesterday an  Inmate of the Home for Feeble Minded, when he ended his earthly troubles, says the Minneapolis Tribune.  The little l'cllow, who at times was  bright and interesting, was admitted  to the home several months ago, and  soon won the hearts of all the attendants by his cute ways and lovable  disposition.  He was wise beyond his years, in  spite of the fact that a cloud rested  upon his brain, and demonstrated in  a thousand ways that he was suffering  mental   agony  most  of  the  time.  For nearly a week he had been  acting in a manner so. peculair that  the nurses paid more attention to  him than usual, and as he had been  heard to say that he wished he could  die, no matter by what means, everything with which he could Injure  himself was carefully kept out of the  way.  Yesterday the child seemed to have  recovered his spirits, and the vigilance of the nurses was relaxed a bit.  This the little fellow was quick to  note. He said nothing, but abided  his chance. It came in the afternoon, when the attention of a nurse  guarding him was' attracted elsewhere for a minute.  Like a flash the boy darted into  the adjoining mediicne room, threw  open the case where the poisons are  kept, seized a big bottle or raw carbolic acid, and in a second had swallowed the contents.  ' Medical aid was prompt, but tho  acid, worked too swiftly, and tn 10  minutes the child was dead���������killed by  himself because he was tired of being  shut up like a wild beast.  At a coroner's inquest,, held soon  after his death, a verdict that death  was self inflicted was returned, and  the nurses were exonerated from all  blame.

Mr. Davis' somewhat naive admission that his editors  cleslred him to "follow the war from  the -Boer side" may be dismissed with  the just criticism that he has loyally  carried out his Instructions.  As to the betrayal of their countrymen by Messrs. Chamberlain and  Rhodes, the "misrepresentation of  facts," and "suppresison of truths"  it is not necessnry to do more than  remind Mr. Davis' readers that the  best possible evidence exists of Mr.  Chamberlain's desire and intention to  avoid'war; and the lack of "preparation on the part of Great Britain,  when the emergency arose, may be  appealed to as an indication that the |  government at large did not seriously  contemplate an outbreak of 'hostilities. Mr. Chamberlain's frank reiterations of his own position ln the  matter will be accepted by all who  do not share Mr. Davis' profound ignorance of the actual facts of the  case.  Mr. Davis avers that if we would  personally study the situation as he  did "by three months of enquiry In  the Transvaal" we should Inevitably  share his pro-Boer sympathy. This  averment may be gravely doubted.  Mr. Davis should bear ln mind that  An  Attpmpt  Will  Bu  Made   to  ciliate tbe Creeks.

Crazy Snake sjys that whou he was  last ln Washington he    called    upon  William   A.   Jones,   corninlslloner    of  Indian affairs, and prayed to him for  relief  from the  unlust  terras of  the  Carlis act.      Hu suya thut Mr. Jones  told him to return homii and'that the  Creeks   might  make  tbelr  own  laws  nereatter.     Snake insists that he has  signed statements from JoneB to prove  hi3 iiBsnrtion..    However, no one who  lias seen these letters  can  bo found.  Politics,   lt  ia  said,   have    entered  somewhat  Into   the  exaggerated    reports sent out from this section. The  present   United   Status   marshal,   Lee  E. Bennett, has a bidder fo** his office  and his enemies, It Is said, have been  given color to the sensational reports  and    saying    that    another    marshal  would    have made wholesale    arrests  from the start and thereby put n stop  to even the suspicion of an uprising.  The fact of the matter is that under  recently adopted    regulations  hy  tho  department nt   WasniiiEton    Bennett  has   heen  powerless   to  not    without  permission from thc federal    ollicials  there.

Bennett- is   busy  today  geting  provisions  and     supplies    together  preparatory  to    starting    tomorrow  with  about   20    deputies   to  join tho soldiers at Henrietta.  Bennett says his mission is to fight  if necessary, but principally to convince tho Indians that Snake has no  authority from the federal government to mako laws, and that Snake  and his followers are violating the  laws of the United States when they  attempt to enforce the old laws of the  Prime Beef, Pork, Mutton* Sausage  Fish and Came in season.
