Tho Keystone Mountain camp,  which was first explored by A. AV.  Mcintosh some live years ago, is ono  which will very rapidly spring into  prominence with Lhe unproved enin-  iniiriicalioii wliich lhe steamer on Iho  upper liver will furnish. The mountain lies hack a few, miles fiom lhe  Columbia.and the miiiei al lead can bo  traced across il, for four or live miles.  On tho load iue located soino liih ly or  forty claims iu all. A treuiendoiisly  heavy iron rapping is it distinguishing  feature of the lead. On the Keystone  claim ilsell", Iho original discovei y.  which is owned by A. W. Mtlnlosh  and F. B.

At  tho end of the tminol llie lead dips  down suddenly arid the 010 value**  increase considerably. Development  has she\i 11 up a good hody of galena on  tho Keystoiie and thero is no doubt?  that future operations will disclose  one of lhe banner mini's 111 tlio Bond  in the Keystone. Other claims on lhe  lead are the Black Diamond which has  a tremendous iron capping, owned by  A. AV. Mcintosh, the S11011 bird owned  by C.

It was not taken, as far as  this paper understands, in anyspiiit  ot actual antagonism to the proposed  i.tilway, but simply hecausethe boaid  111 the absence of sufficient infot mation  on llie subject, did not wish to take . a  stand one way or the other, lt is  obvious that this was the right course  to puisne. Grout interests are involved in this matter and a too hasty step  either one way or the other might be  bitterly regretted.    On   llie  one hand  I he proposed road piomises to develop  the extensive coal measures of tho  Crow's Nest Pass to a remarkable  degree* and it would be suicidal for this  pi ovince to place any bar in the way  of our coal finding ashoit ionic toils  natural market in the States immediately soulh of us.

In fact  things havp tome to such a pass that  the veiy existence of mining in Kootenay depends upon our being able to  get'local smelteis and lefinets established in the district, lt is a veiy  doubtful point whether tho powois  behind ibis pioposed tharterare not  hostile to the establishment of nny  smelleis or lelineiies in this province..  It may be taken foi granted that lhe  smelling tonibine lecently formed in  Iho States are not likely to he friendly  lo the existence of riy.il smelteis and  lefilieries in Kootenay.' Thev did not  go lo the tumble offouning their  tuist 111 01 tiei lo build up ceimpeLilois  in Canada. Now we limit the Orim's  Nest coal fields to help ns build np'onr  smelters, but the men behind the  desired chm ter are closely allied with  the American iineller combine. This  is the crux of lhe 11 hole situation ami  no amount of talk about the benefits  Ot railway competition gels around it.  It will avail this piovince but in a very  small degree, if it gets competition to  timiwpmt- its coal t.o tho Montana  market and at I he same time throw  away its jiopes of building up tiie  smelting hidustiy and with them the  whole mining   industry   in Kootenay.

The Dominion ministry had'a pretty  close,,call on the first party vote of  the session. Dr. Sproule had moved  a resolution in favor of a bounty on  the production of sugar beets. Mr.  Fielding moved the adjournment of  tho debate which motion carried by  only nine of a majority. The vote  stood, government 59, opposition 50.  It is asserted that this remarkable  smallness of the Liberal majority is  due to the Quebec followers who are  out with the' government because  they will not introduce a measure to  increase the sessional indemnity. It  does look as if the government were  already suffering from factional disturbances, the inevitable outcome of  a very big majority.   0   A TALE OF HORROR.

In the United States, that ideal republic that is swayed by au aristocracy (?) of political bosses and  miliionaiire monopolists, certain high  officials are protesting against 'giving  commissions in the navy to men who  ha.ve served before the mast, for fear  of social contremps. And yet America  is the much vaunted land of freedom  and fraternity. How doth history repeat itself.  A ,Canadkin has been lynched at  Scranton. We are not concerned as  io whether the man was guilty or  not but he was a British subject who  was murdered by a mob without a  semblance of trial. The Americans  are certainly entitled to burn and  hang each other as long as they please  but if they think they can try on "the  same game with British subjects they  will get. sadly left. The Imperial and  Dominion authorities will certainly  take the matter up and tho ringleaders of the Scranton mob will yet  have to regret that they laid un-  sanctified hands upon a British subject. ' ,   o   Last July four eggs were left in  the doorway of Signora Angela Par-  izza, of Newark, N. J., and have  since been the henfriii.ful source of  woes and litigation. The signora was  not sued for the value of the eggs,  which is said to have been a minus  amount. The eggs in fact were snid  to be too bad to he beaten. Signora  Parizza not only accused her neighbor Signora Dirolla of putting the  eggs in the doorway, but emphasized  her opinion by putting that lady out  of business in one round. An r.ction  for ?500D damages followed and the.  jurv after being locked up for two  day's and a night were discharged  without finding a verdict.

Twenty-five  vears ago, when in the prime of his  manhood, he did serrice for Canada  that is having a good effect yet.  When the great west was opened for  settlement the Mounted police was organized and he was one of its best  officers. Sent to the foot of tho  Rockies, almost a thousand miles  from support, it became his duty to  teach the powerful Blackfoot Indians  a lesson, and he did it so firmly antl  ouietly that the effect was never lost.  Accompanied by two men he entered  their armed camp and took out the  criminals he wanted, and his manner  of doing it gave the tribes to know  that the police were, their masters, as  well as their friends. Sitting Bull,  the last of thc great Sioux warriors,  who had cost the United Sla..-* ������-my  thousands of men. knew what the  Canadian police were, and came with  his braves unarmed and docile tic-fore  the representative of British civil  law.

For ove; a century G. Washington  ranked as the monopolist of every  chance to chop dow.i a few cords of  fame with his little hatchet. The  hatchet exercise seems to be a game  which two can play'at. It was left  to Mrs. Carrie Nation to prove that  the late Mr. Washington was not to  figure as the one lonely ancl exclusive  hatchet artist in all the bright rod  pages of American history. If George  Washington can make history in a  small way by chopping down one  poor runt of a cherry tree. Carrie  Nation can make hiEtory in a larg?  way by chopping up a few full sized  bar-rooms. Carrie Nation and George  Washington are indeed sister and  brother in the hatchet game. It is  not known exactly whether Mrs.  Nation ever told a lie. but Georcre  Wpshineton could never rival Carrie  Nation in the gentle art of swaying  other people's destinies with a little  hatchet,   v. " ��������� ���������  ',  A Device Which Should do Away with  all Dangers of Bein? Buried Alive.  New York. Feb. 28.���������Practical demonstration was given yesterday at  14 West Eighth street of a method  of saving the lives of those proina-  tnrely burled. The system is the invention of Count Michael do Karnico  Karnichl.  Emile Camis, the Inventor's accredited representative in this country, arrived here recently from I'arls.  He has put the apparatus in place  and yesterday he .wits aula, to show  ln detail how it is used. He lay  down in a casket aud from it gave  such signals as he would have done  had he been buried alive. The Karnico system calls for very simple mu-  chanical appliances.  Count Karnice's attention was first  attracted to the subject of'premature  burial by a dramatic incident which  came under his own experience. As  chamberlain to the Csar of Russia,  he is engaged ln various Industrial  projects, and has estates- in Russian  Poland, where thousands, of persons  are employed. A daughter of one of  the count's tenants was thought to  have died, and the Russian nobleman  went to the funeral.  Owing to certain official duties he  did not arrive until the coffin had  been lowered into the grave. It  seemed to him as the approached that  ho heard a faint noise from the  grave, and he at once ordered the  coffin taken out.  It was found that tho girl was living. She is alive to this day, a witness: to an almost miraculous "escape  from  death.  Count Karnice was so Impressed by  what he had witnessed that'll*., began  to make a. study of the; subject of  premature burial and finally invented  the apparatus which bears his name-  Mr. Camis used yesterday a. casket  originally constructed for FrauciSQUc  Sarcey, a distinguished French dramatic, critic, who probably had no  idea at the time that his own death  wai imminent. After Mr. Cami-s had  taker, his place the coffin lid was  closed and a tube four Inches in diameter was fitted into an aperture in  the lid. In tho top of the tube was  a small steel box. about 16 Inches  square. The coffin was then hermetically   sealed.  Suddenly the lid of the box^ flew  open, and a creat nickel plated ball  rose to a height of six feet above the  coffin lid and a bell rang with the  vigor of a Yankee alarm clock on a  frosty morning. Mr. Camis had come  to life.  Then there sounded from tho bor  a loud outcry. Mr. Camis subseQuent-  lv stated that he had not spoken In  an especially loud one, and explaimi-  ed that the construction of the ap-  paiatus had increased the volume* of  his voice. When the coffin was opened  he  emerged  smiling.  Mr. Camis is makng arrangements  to have himself buried undor six leet  of earth in the presence of well  known persons is order that he niay  draw attention to the need In this  country of some device to save ihe  lives of persons burled alive.  There   is    something    weird   about  beinc-  buried  in  a-coffin   even  when  vou 'know  that  friends  are  roady  disiuter you.

It  seemed   as  thoueh  I   were  in  a  The following is an account of the  lynching of a negro which took place  at Terra Haut, Ind.. a few days ago,  taken from the Spokesman-Review:  George Ward, a negro employee of  the ear works, was taken from jail  ancl lynched by a mob for the murder  of Miss Ida Finkelstein. late yesterday afternoon. Miss Finkelstein was  a toacher in a sahool near the outskirts of Che city and was on her  wav home from school when a negro  sprang out from a clumo of bushes  and gave chase. After Tunninu a  short distance tho nesxo overtook his  victim and shot her. Then he cut  ker throat, robbed her of her pocket-  book, containing three dollars, and  fled. More dead than alive the school  mistress staggered to her home, half  a mllo distant. She told her story,  and then relapsed into unconsciousness.   At midnight she died.  Public indicnation was tremendous,  and posses wero at once organized  and scoured the country in all directions, searching for the negro Early  today Ward was arrested on suspicion. At first he denied all know  ledgo of the crime, but later confessed, saying the girl had taunted him  about his color and had slapped .him  in the face, and in a .fit- of anger ho  had shot her-trad cut her throat.  Jail Doors Battered In  Ward was placed in jail and as  soon as the fact became known a  crowd began assembling before* ��������� the  structure. By noon hundreds of people surged the street in front' of the  jail, demanding that Ward ,be tio-  livered to them. Suddenly tlie crowd  rushed at the jail door, and in*-a  moment battered it down. They were  driven back however, by Jailer O'Don-  nelly, wb~o fired a gun several times  over their heads. Three deputy sheriffs received slight injuries from the  charges of shot, but none in the mob  were hurt. Arrangements were it  once made to take the prisoner before the court immediately. This  was announced to the mob but did not  appease them.  At' 12:36 the mob'again rushed at  the'battered; front door of the jail and  swept all resistance aside. Ward was  found crouching in a cell and waa  dragged out. A rope was placed  around, his1 neck and he was. dragged  to the wagon bridge' across the Wabash river, three blocks awav. and  hanged  to a bridge stringer.  On the way to the bridge the victim was beaten with sticks and shot  at by members of the mob, and ��������� he  was unconscious when hanged, and in  all probability dead. When the body  was dropped from thc bridgo one  strand - of the rope broke, and. the  leaders of the mob, thinkins that  that their victim might drop into the  river, "hauled the body up again, and  it was tl raged to the west side of he  river and  burned.  Tliere was uo attempt at disguise  on the part of any member of the  mob. -In all tho crowd not one word  of sympathy for the wretch was to  be heard, though many deprecated  the final act of burning.  It is estimated that 2"i09 people  formed tho mob.  Details of an Awful Lynching  At noon the crowd outside the jail,  numbered several hundred, including  men. women and boys, battered the  iron doors and were drven back by  .Jailer Lawrence O'Donnell. " who fired  over the heads of the mob. Deputy  Sheriffs Cooper.1. Hessiclc ancl Leforge  were struck by scattering shot and  slightly injured, but nobody in the  crowd was hurt. A detail of police  arrived on the scene and tr|.?d to disperse the crowd, but with poor success.  The crowd kept on growing and  the excitement increasing until 4:C5  o'clock a crowd of Irresistible num-  ojbers attacked the jail, battering down  interment the outer doors, securing possession of  the keys and entered the cell room.  A piece of railrop.d timber. 25 feet,  long and eight inches thick was used  as   a   battering   ram. . The   side   door  ed $1 for' a toe from the 'nigger's  foot." A. venturesome,youth drawing  a knife .from; his pocket made a dash  for the 'prize. He quickly delivered a  for the prize. He quickly amputated  a toe, delivered tho goods and got his  money. As the bones began to  crumble and fall apart the fragments  were drawn from the flre and carried  away.  At 8 o'clock there was nothing left  of the body except a small portion of  the trunk and the back of the head.  Busy hands kept the burning fagots  piled upon the roasting segment.  Women Came by Scores  Women came to the scene by scores  and elbowed their way into the inner  circle of spectators, apparently unmoved by the horror of the spectacle.  When the last fragment of tho body  was consumed the crowd still lingered  augmented by new arrivals, satisfied  to gaze on the ashes of the dead.  Ward was 27 years old and leaves  a widow and two sons. Ht. came here  two years ago from Circleville. Ohio.  The statement that he was at one  timo in an Insane asylum was denied  by the widow. He served a jail sentence in 18"99 for larceny.  As   public   sentiment   upholds   the  lynching no prosecutions are expected.  o      This, in substance is.her story ofthe terrible'.crime. .--:-.Her talk was  rather mixed and some of it was incoherent, but the above' is as nearly  her own words as could be gathered.

A Spokane despatch says:  Mrs. Wurzer, insane murderess, iras  held at the city jail lost evening for  safe keeping.  Mrs. Wurzer slew her six children  at TJniontown, Wash., Saturday night  by drowning them In a well. She  was yesterday at Colfax adjudged insane and committed to the asylum at  Medical Lake by Judge Chadwick of  the Whitman county superior court.  Deputy Sheriff Hamilton, of Whitman county, and Mrs. Bronneke, of  Colfax, left with Mrs. Wurzer on the  afternoon train, and arrived in Spokane at 6:45 last evening.  The unfortunate woman was taken  at once to the city jail and placed in  the strong room, where she was. seen  by a reporter. ,   i.  With glaring eyes    and. disheveled  hair she/paced back and forth ln her  cell, muttering incoherently.  -  "Do you know where you are." she  was asked.  "Yes, I'm in heaven," she replied  in her peculiar broken English. "I  Had six children," she continued, "and  they all went to school, but they don't  go to school yny more. 1 killed  them. Oh! that was best for them.  I killed them. They are in heaven  now,  too."  Then with a moan she sank to her  knees, and clasping her hands, rocking to and fro, she prayed. She  prayed for her dead children, lor herself-and for her relatives and trlends  in Austria, then breaking off suddenly she called to an occupant of an  adjoining cell, and "talked for several  minutes in her native tongue. Then  as suddenly she resumed her prayers.  "Did you know my children?" she  asked. "They all went to school  Yes. they all went to school, but they  don't go to school any more. They  were uice children too, but I killed  them. 1 am not sorry that I killed  them. They are in heaven, too, but  I ��������� can't see my. children until I have  Been in  heaven for two weeks."  Thus she talked In    disjointed sen  tences  and  again  sank to her knees  aud resumed her prayers.  As tne reporter was leaving she  called to him: "Good-by. You will  have to be in heaven two weeks  before you can see me again. Good-  by."  Deputy Sneriff Lang will leave with  his cuarge for Medical Lake on the  morning train.  Tne Story of the Crime.

The trip to CnflaTC was made  ma carriage, and at times the murderess grew restless and wanted to  escape, when Mrs. Breonneke would  -eonv-ersej_w-Ith-.her-iir.lher���������nat5vo_lan-.  guage and the woman would regain  her composure antl soon drop off to  sleep. She spent the night In the  county jail,, under guard, but slept  only at intervals. She would ��������� wak������  up and go Into the sheriff's private  office and lie on the sofa, and, when  she thought the guards were not looking, would try to esacpe. She shows  a great degree of cunning. Deputy  Sheriff Hamilton and Mrs. Broeuneke,  who was authorized by thc court, to  act as attendant, left this afternoon  for Spokane with Mrs. Wurzer, and  will go from Spokane in the morning  to Medical Lake. -  Told of the Murders.  rMs. Worzer does not speak Bullish  well and gave ner testimony In German. Mrs. Hroenueke acting aH.iinter-  preter. The women told In detail of  the murder of her slz helpless children, saying she suddenly determined  to kill them, as she realized that they  could be saved In no other way. She  trusted In Jesus to save her, but was  certain the children could - only be  sav������-d by being killed. She. sale! she  first tnrew George, the 4 yeai old  baby in the well, and then threw  Mary and Joseph, the twins, aged C,  In after him. Anna, aged 7, followed: thon Louise, aged 10; the eldest,  aged 11, was not thrown In the well.  After the five youngest had beer,  thrown In.' the mother leaped down  to them and drowned thetn one at a  time. She had Kosa carry a bucket  of wale;- from a neighbor's well and  this was thrown down her own well  to make sufficient water In which lo  drown the children.  "They begged me not to kill them,"  said tho crazy mother, "and at tlm*s  r felt that. I could not do it and then  I drowned them. While 1 was holding thc head of one tinde.r wainr the  others would beg me not to kill If.  and fell me 1 did not,,know what I  was doing. When one was dead I  would lay It to one side of the well  so it would not be jln my way, and  so If. would leave room and water  enough to drown the next. They  kept begging me not to do it, and to  let them live, but it hnd to lv. done.  That was thc only way to save them.  I am not sorry thnt I killed them:  they are In heaven with thfiir father  now. I begged Rosa" to .lump down  in the well where thc other children  and I were, and she jumped down to  me and I drowned her too."  Illustrative  Customs.  The following is an extract from a  letter received from an officer at  present serving in South Africa, by  his relatives in Calgary:  I have been watching a curious trial  today. One boy charged another  with some crime and the accused  'denies it, so they each get a chicken,  one a Cockered and one a pullet in  and they sit by themselves  in the middle ot an interested circle,  while the chickens are tethered by  one leg to two pegs in front of the  medicine men who brew a poisonous  decoction in a little tin can beslda a  small wood fire and give each chicken  a dose. The chicken dying first proclaims its owner the guilty one. They  wore ..having their third dose when I  saw them last, over an hour ago,- and  the case is not punished yet.' The  medicine men evidently, like-to get  their money's worth.  I think the case is really setlted  either by tho medicine man's favor or  private judgment of their guilt, as  of one of the principals, or his own  they sit in front of him all day and  he can accordingly give the chicken  of the one he thinks or wishes gulity  a little more each time than the  other.'"- The punishment is .flogging  and 1 am confident I could pick the  guilty one. The other boy looks  worried, but the one I take to be the  culprit doesn't seem to care. He  knows that if his chicken dies he  deserves the flogging anyway, but  the other boy doesn't see it that way  at all. I wonder how he -satisfies  himself if the verdict goes against  him. I went down to see the finish,  and after cutting a string off the  wrist of plaintiff and'defendant the  head medicine man gave them ..each,  after helping himself, a pinch", of  black powder in each - hand to swallow, ,and the. same to the three other  medicine men"'-and the trial was.ide-  clared. postponed until' the - next  quarter sessions I'presume, the chickens having positively refused to die.  It .was a strange and in some ways a  sad sight. Then all hands repaired  to the compound where -the usual  Sunday afternoon hop was proceeding.   o   TREATED TO CHAMPAGNE  On the Eve of Death���������Chinese Functionaries Executed.  Kill Siu and Hsu Chang Yu, the  two Chinese officials who were turned over by the Japanese to the board  of punishments, were beheaded lately  on the same spot where the four  members of the tsung liy amen were  put to death-during thc siege for favoring the foreigners. ��������� A great crowd  assembled to witness the executions.  Before the executioner did his work.  Lieutenant Colonel"Gore��������� Shiba, military attache of the Japanese legation, visited the condemned mon and  treated them to champagne. Kih  Siu said to him: " I do not know  what I have done to make me do-  serving of death, but if beheading me  will make the foreign troops evacuate Pekin and my emperor return, I  am satisfied to 'die. -1' will tlie a  patriot."  Kih Siu and Hsu Chang Yu were  taken to the place of execution in  carts, escorted bj' Japanese infantry.  Both were dresesd in their official  costumes, but without marks of their  rank. The street in which they were  beheaded was guarded by French,  German and American troops. Kih  Siu's bearing was most dignified. He  was apparently calm" and fearless.  Hsu Chang Yu seemed to -be stupefied  with opium.  The condemned men' met death  stoically. In each case one blow  severed tlie head from the body.  At the time the execution was  being.carried out the ministers- held  a meetlng'and determined on the part  of the majority to draw a curtain  over further demands for ��������� blood.  United States Special Commissioner  Eockhill sided strongly with those  favoring humane methods, who are  S.r_Ea.rnesti_Sato.w,_._ancUM._Komara._  Colgan and DeGiers, respectively  British. Japanese, Spanntsh ancl Russian ministers. Others believed that  Chin-', had not been properly punished and that men' should be executed  in every city, town and village  where foreigners had been killed. It  is to safe to say. however, that little  more blood will be demanded.  IMPERIAL BA'  OF 5l\BADA  Jlciul Oflice.

March 5.���������The house todav.  considered Mr. Mulock's' resolution  authorizing the governor in council to guarantee the payment of fiva-  sixteenths of the cost,of,the Pacific  cable, said cost being estimated at  '������2,000,000. Mr. Mulock said that  since" the act of 1899 , some I'hanaes  have taken place in the conditions existing. The Australian statGE owned  by telegraph lines and of course tha'c  crcumstance was a guarantee that  the cable in which these stares ivei-p  interested will receive a larse amount  of business and patronage through  the movement of Australasia Since  the contract was sisned In December  last the state of New, South' Y.rnles  has made an agreement- w:th the  Eastern Extension Telesraah company. Certain concessions and privileges necessary in competition with  the government of New South Wales  in. that the company was to enjoy the  advantage of carrying ou business as  a land telegraph company in New  South Wales.        .   .  This must have som3 nppvpcnhw  effect upon the. financial success of  the Pacific cable" and he. deemed it his  "duty to call atention to.,_the fact" although of course "it was too late to  recede even should Canada desire. to do  so,' because the 'contract had been  signed and the cable was now presumably under construction. Instead  of the money beinu borrowed, as .was  contemplated^in^.1899,   by. .the .cable  commission and the various govern  ments guaranteeing their respective  shares, it has been arranged that the  imperial government should borrow  the money in* the first instance arid  the various governments should  undertake to bear their proper share  of the loan.  Petrusvllle and our patrols have been  engaged,. I anticipate that a general  acton is about to be fought and that  the collision Is likely to prove serious."  General French's most recent success combined with the advantages  gained by the British forces in South  Africa has created a most hopeful  feeling in  the war  office  here.  Lord Raglan, under secretary for  war, described it today as being the i  "thin edge of the wedge." and this .  is also the opinion of military critics.

Tic regretted if thl������ would be  the case.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier:      "I    may inform  my  honorable  friend  that correspondence is now going on between  Ottawa and London on this very subject.      The  correspondence    at    this  moment is confidential, and it is not  in my power to give the communications to  the House.      Without going  into particulars as to the tenor of the  correspondence I may state that I. am  altogether with my honorable  friend  iu   thinking   that   it  wotilcV be   most  unfortunate if their royal highnesses  of Cornwall and York had not an opportunity, of  visiting  every, province  in  the Dominion when they come to  Canada  next summer.      It would  be  most   convenient,   and   I   believe   the  best mode for all would be for their  royal  highnesses, who  are to  return  from  Australia    next > September, -to  come by way of the Pacific instead of  the  Atlantic,  landing    at Vancouver,  visiting British  Columbia, the towns  of Manitoba, and so on down towards  Halifax.      This, is  the  view I   think  we  can assume,  is being represented  at this moment to their royal  highnesses.       More   than   this.

Changes in the School Laws.
The government proposes, if the
amendments proposed to the Public
School Act become law, and thai, is
assured as it has already been can-
cussed upon, to increase the provincial
revenue tax from the present figure
!���;:'. to $5. Hitherto the four inuni-
cinalities of Victoi in, Vancouver, New
Westminster and Nanaimo, . have
collected and retained this tax,' but
I he govern ment now pi opose to take it,
themselves. Compensation is to be
provided, according to the finance
minister, bv a. material advance in the
per capita grant, to each of these cities.
These grants will be based as before
on the grading of the school under the
provisions of" the' School act Cit.y
M-hui.l districts of the first class include
all incorporated cities and' towns
wherein the average actual daily
attendance equals or exceeds 1.000 for
the school year, comprising Victoria
and Vancouver; second class districts,
where the average is 250 or over and
comprising Xaiiiiinin. Nelson. New
Westminster and Rossland; and lhe
t bii d cla=s those under 250 and comprising Columbia. Cumberland, Grand

Phoenix,    Revelstoke,    Sandon     and
The per capita grunt for cities of the
first class will be ijiK': fur cities of the
second class, gilo: and for the cities of
the third class. $20.
In addition to lhis thc new act will
provide for an appropriation of $-'"00
for each teacher employed in a high
school.       ., __.;.;... iU...;.
will give instant, relief,  and  a
bcitlle will usually cure two or
