The Work Laid Out for the Double  Eagle Company's Property���������A Good  Report from the Standard Mine���������A  Bonanza Gold Proposition on Keystone Mountain, Big: Bend.  During the past few days as is well  known the hoard of directors of the  Double Eagle Mining & Development  Co. have lieen in session here' milking  arrangements for tho development of  their various properties in North  Kootenay. These properties include  groups and claims fi0111 the Big Bend  country to the LardeuiPiind comprise  the Nolile Three group of five claims  on Lafoime creek, the Trilby group on  Snhle creek, the Moscow and Ottcrtii.il  claims on Pool creek, the Silver Bow,  Butte and Black Diamond on Lexington creek and the well known Maybe  mine adjoining the famous Nettie L  near Ferguson. The company, which  has solid London capital at its hack, is  thus interested ill over the district of  North Kcioteimy. The work laid out  fur the coming season will be done on  the Maybe and Moscow properties, cm  both of "which ii large .amount of money  will be spent in development'utider the  capable direction of Manager Pool of  the Nettie L, who is also managing  director of the Double Eagle Co. Witli  regard to the Lafonne creek properties it has been decided to get thetn  crown granted at once but v further  development will he deferred until  such methods of transportation ancl  communication are available as will  render coin unions work feasible The  completion of the deal by which the  company acquired its various properties marks a step forwaid iu the  development of North Kootenay.  .  .1 .*'  C. B.Hume & Co,  Carbonate Chief.  Among the numerous Big Bend  properties uf which lilt le is heard at.  present, hut which wilh pioper. means  of toium indention will very rapidly  come to the front ii- the Carbonate  Chief, a gold proposition, situated on  Keystone mountain, aliout. three nr  tour miles back froni thc river as* the  crow flies.

W.- H.  j\y_Ui"Ox_^lidtcoiisidHi^ibl������_.wc>i*k; on" .this  *picinVJjy.iii'.thV* winter'of '08 aiul' ran  a tunnel over,ISO feet and over GO feet  altogether of a" crosscut from t he '.end  of and at"1 right n'ngleS. lo the tunnel.  The ore is believed by thc; owners to  be a gold sulphide arid is so soft that it  has tube worked by picked and shovel.  Theie is ������n immense body of it n������ the  whole of the 130 odd teet of the tunnel  and crosscut is in this ore and the w all  has not yet been struck. The ore  goes from $3 00 a ton in gold as it  comes out of the. mine to $8.00 when  concentrated, which an expi vt repori ed  could be done foi* 20 cents a ton. Tie  values are veiy uniform throughout  the whole working1-. When concen-  dated it could be treated, it is believed, by either the chlorination or  cyanide process on the spot. The  Herald expects to hear of the Carbonate Chief hefoie long.  Lieutenant Pooley Writes of the High  Standard of Their Work.���������British  Columbia Contingent Well Upheld  Honor of the Province.  Nineteenth Battery, R, F. A.. Newcastle, Natal. Jan. 23.���������As Strathcona's  Horse are about to leave, or have left,  for home, and, contrary to my expectations, I will be out here till the end  of the war. imd am consequently  unable to return with them, 1 feel  that; as the ollicer iu charge of those  splendid men, who more than a year  ago, left, principally Victoria, Vancouver and Revelstoke (the men of No.  4 troop, C. squadron) for service in  South Africa, it is my duty to let  those who sent them forth as worthy  representatives of those I owns, know  that they have performed their duties  in a manner that they should all feel  proud of. Splendid men they are, for  men that have gone through the hardships and performed theirduties in the  way that they have are splendid men.  They have., in, every way upheld the  name and honor of British Columbia  and Canada, and. continued while in  South Africa, to maintain that glorious  standard, which they found on arrival  here to have be.eh set by their brothers-  in-arms, the Canadians at Paardeberg.  I cannot speak too highly of these  men, individual and collectively: when  I say that to my knowledge only two  of these, about 42 men. have, while in  Strathcona's-Horse,-been brought up  on a cliaige before their 'commanding  officer, military men at -least will  undeibtand what this really means,  and iv hilt a high recmd it is for men.  who with one or two exceptions, have  never scen.iiiilitaiy service before. All  ordeisand duties weie always carried  out cheerfully, keenly and in a  thorough manner, and the best of  comradeship existed thronghout. If  any recommendation I can.give them  might l>e of use in after life to help  them, I give it willingly, and honeslly  feel that never did men before deserve  a stronger recommendation than they  do for the way they have, one and all,"  performed their duties.

The Imperial Limited,  The Imperial Limited service is to  go into effect on u date to" be selected  about the middle-of June. The company purpose making some changes  which will result iu cutting down ihe  time between Monti eai and Vancover  by some hours. The C. P. R. is figuring  on an unusually large amount of  transcontinental, business, among tbe  fixtures being several parties uf English touristh who are expected to take  in the Kootenays. The C.P.R. houseboats on the Kootenay and Slocan  lakes are to be widely advertised - and  are expected to be in almost constant  use,  predate the honor and -luck I had,  thoiihh the youngest.officer'in the regiment,, in being- in ch.-.ige of s.ich  soldier's, and one.felt that it, was possible, to , go through almost anything  with such fine, British Culiimbiai'S  behind you. I should like to '.ike this  opportunity of publicly thanking them  lor the way they at all* limes .so_.*well.  and cheerfully cai-i-jc.il out' orders -and  to assure them that it was due,to this  and the excellent . work ���������of.-.the non-.  commissioned oflic'-ei-s lhat 'the troop  hud the best recoul for discipline in  the regiment. In writing this lettei.  'I'm uo'way'wish to dispirag'e thu  other tioops of the regiment. 7 Far  fiom it, because I honestly believe  that no finer body of men " than  Sli.ithiona Hoise could have been got  together, as I have many, tunes heard  oiir'tommaudirig officer remark (and  who a better judge than he ?.) '"'But 'I  consider, having been put in charge of  a certain body of' men,, and" when I  honestly feel as I now do, lhat I am  justified in giving such a highly  satisfactory repoit as this is, that. I  would be neglecting my duty did I not  do so, and also do my utmost in their  behalf. I have heaid several Imperial  ofificeis speak of Strathcona's Horse in  the most flattering manner, and say,  and tightly, too, "had there been a few  thousand more Canadians out here,  tlie war would have been over before  this." The one regrettable fact of this  war is that there has been far too  much suirendeiing of British troops;  but none of those Bi itish troops were  Canadians, and. this fact especially  causes them to be so highly respected  as they now aie; but in speaking of  that, I am sure that all Canadians, who  "came ootr~of"this-countrv^aftei'-the  Canadian infantry, will not for a moment hesitate iu t> eying in so many  .words, "they are the boys," they are  the ones we have to thank for the way  in which the Canadian troops are now  respected: and glad I shall be when I  can meet some of them to. eougratu  late them. They-set the standard, and  thata high one, and we did our best  tomaiiitain.it. The Gordon Highlanders, who fought alongside and  amongst the Canadian intantry at  Paardeberg, said, after the.fight, thut  they would sooner' fight alongside a  Canadian than anybody, and.this from  a Thomas Atkins! which I consider in  a matter :.of that kind the highest  compliment.  Strathcona's Horse have marched,  undoubtedly, up to the time tliey left,  further than any other regiment that  has been out here. They have been  continually on the move since June  last, beldom stopping longer than 'iwo  or three clays, and on one occasion, a  week. They have been thiough  Zululand, Natal, Transvaal, north,  south, east and west; Orange River  Colony and Cape Colony, a record  which no other regiment, has. I wish  all members of Strathcona's Horse the  best of luck, and assure my troop that  I am very sorry I am not returning to  Canada'-, in the proud . position of  lieutenant in charge of No. 4 troop, C  squadron'. The following is a roll of  the names of men who are past and  present of the above troop, several  non-commissioned 'officers having been  promoted and transferred to other  troops.

The mayor nalso  carried with him *i petition for the_  establishment of a high school here  signed liy nearly 300 people. With  them went Aid. McCarty and C. F.  Lindmark who with Mr. MeCarter are  a delegation from thu hoard of trade  to urge upon" the government the  necessity ot a bonus to the proposed  steamboat on -the upper river, the  completion of the waggon road lo  Eight Mile without delay, the trail  from Goldstream to the mouth ol  Canoe river and all matters connected  with lhe speedy opening up of the Big  Bend distiict." With the delegation  went II. J. Bourne, whose assistance  in pressing the needs of Revelsloke on  the ministers will be of weight and  value.  Specially Mentioned in Despatches.  Among the South African despatches just published iu thc'London  Gazette is one from Gen.,Buller on the.  Strnthcona. After mentioning-, the  "marked success" with which they had  served since joining the force last June  and the value, which they have been  lo it of which he says "I'can hardly  speak too highly", he speaks of the  valuable services of Col. Steele and  mentions some of the officers and men  as having specially - distinguished  themselves. Finally he appends "a  list of those officers and men, who  dm ing the 12 months' work have  performed special acts of bravery or  have been selected tor and successfully  curried out arduous reconnaisances or  dangerous duties." Among . these  names is that of Corp. R. M. Grogan  of the firm ot Rolt it Grogan. Rossland  and'brother of G. E. Giogau. editor of  the Herald.  _    \ *  Pioneer Navigation on the Columbia.  The first boat put on the river to  make connection between ReveNtcke  and the lower couutry was the Despatch, which was commanded by  Capt. Sanderson and un fiom this  point down river about thirteen yeais  ago'. F. .McCarty acted as her engineer for aliout six weeks and all the  freight she" carried in that period was  two bales' of oie sacks, a-couple of  cases of liquor and few odds and ends.  However, -. there, was more, or less  passenger traffic and _the- venture was  a paying one.   '       ' ,.'-       " .<. i  INVESTMENT ON  SUFFERANCE  Millionaires as Helpless as D.igos  Before the Power of the Big Six.  But through it all (here is one point  that shines out clearly: that is the  helplessness of the individual. Mine  owners in the Slocan who have spent  thousands and himclieds of thousands  iu the development of lheir properties  are as completely at the mercy of one  or another of these great corporations  as the Dago or the Jap on the secl������on  gang.' The experience of the past few  days proves that the laborer and capitalist alike live only by sufferance.  Should tho directors of these great  railway combines so decree they could  shut up this camp as tight as a drum.  Every ton of ore produced is made to  pay its toll and no one escapes the  exactions of the monopoly  And the power .of these kings of  finance is not limited to isolated camps  like the Slocan. Should the six men  who head the famous "community of  interests" aggregation so decree, New  York or San Francisco,. Chicago or  New Orleans could be niiule > to disappear from the map as completely as  Atlantis of the ancients. Theie is no  resisting their power. They have it in  their hands to make, break or set up in  business any indivdnal, company,  combine or community on which they  choose to visit their patronage or displeasure. No city is great enough and  no man is'rich enough to withstand the  disaster that would'follow a disejim-  ination in freight rates. Laws,' anci  interstate commission are deadletteis  in the category of the combines and the  great arteries ot traffic are drained or  glutted as it suits their purpose.���������  Sandon' P.iystreak.

DRIVEN TO TAKE HER OWN LIFE  .Last  July   four  eggs   were   left  in  the  doorway of Signora Angela  Par-  izza,    of  Newark,   N.. J.,    and   have  since been   the  henfmitful  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 said  to be too bad to be beaten.    Sigiiora  Parizza  not only accused  her neighbor   Signora   Dirolla   of   putting    tho  eggs in the doorway, but ernphiHized  her opinion by putting that iady out  of business in one round.

Tt is asserted that this remarkable  srnallness 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.

A hatchet seems to be always ready  to the hand of any American, man  or woman, who wishes to break into  history, says the Toronto Telegram.  For over a century G. Washington  ranked as the monopolist of every  chance to chop down 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 and exclusive  hatchet artist in all the bright red  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 history In a large  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 M;s.  Nation ever told a lie, but Geoi-gs  Washington could  never rivai Carrlo  A  Poor    Woman    Deserted    by  Her  Lover  Commits  Suicide in  Despair  ���������A Drama in Real Life.  Forsaken by the man ahe loved,  and for whom, it is said, she laKt her  Tiusband and several small children,  Mrs. Henrietta Senecal drunk a  quantity of carbolic acid shortly, after  3 o'clock yesterday- afternoon in a  room ..at Sl'Bleury street, dying in  the'" General hospital an hour later.  Says the Montreal Gazette. No statement could be obtained from the  woman as to whether ehe fatal  draught was self-administered or  otherwise, but from Samuel St. Onge.  claiming to be a resident of British  Columbia, who was in the room whero  the prologue to the tragedy was enacted, the police gathered facte which  point to deliberat suicide, the woman  drinking thc fiery stuff before ho  could prevent it. St. Onge was detained by thc police at the Instance  of Coroner McMahon, who haa ordered an inquest to be held this morning, when further investigation will  be made.  All the elements for a flrst-class  drama are contained In tho story  leading up to the tragedy. According  to the statement made to the police.  St. Onge and the dead woman lived  together in a boarding house on St  Antolne street, until a few days ago,  when the man suddenly packed up his  belongings aud left, telling the woman that because of the existing  Tegal barrier he could not marry; her.  Fie claims to havo also given ner  some money. ,.  St. Onge called about 4 o'cock  Thursday afternoon at the home of  Mrs. Irwin, 81 Bleury Btreet, and' arranged for a room and board for  himself. Shortly after he had left  the house, a woman, who was subsequently recognized- as Mrs. Senecal.  arrived, and asked Mrs. Irwin for a  room. Being unable to accommodate  her at the time the woman was requested to call again, which ahc'Tdid  yesterday morning about ���������' 10 o'clock,  saying that St. Onge --was her husband  and that she would remain in his  room until he returned.  "The woman appeared to.-^"be.,In  trouble," Mrs. Irwin said:.."''"She waa  crying. We took herein under the  impression that she was Mr. St. Onge's  wife, and did all we could to make  her comfortable:" - We went to see  her several Ji'mes during the day, and  invited ^her' to have tea, but she complained jof being too III, though she  had not taken any food since the day  before.' The woman was .unable to  speak ,:in English, and at the reauest  of one of the -young men in '. the  house she wrote a note:-'in French,  saying: "If Mr. St. Onge come6 in.  do not toll him ������ am here."  "St. Onge returned to the house  about 3 o'clock in . the afternoon,  going direct to his room. There waa  nothing out of the ordinary in the  meeting of the man and woman,  those who were on the upper floor  say, and they conversed in French for  a fewr moments, the woman afterwards appealing to St. Onge not to  send her away.. There was some  loud talking ancl sounds like a woman crying," Mrs. Irwin said, "and in  a minute later till was quiet. St  Onge came downstairs shortly afterwards, and in passing my sister said:  "Why did you let her in?' with that,  rushing into the street.  "When I went to the room, in response to my sister's call, I at once  detected the fumes of the acid, and  sent for an ambulance, before the arrival or which Dr. Johnston gavo  medical assistance. I asked the  woman several times whether she. or  any one else had given her the acid,  but she was so badly burned in the  mouth and throat that she could uot  speak. Mr. St. Onge told mc wheti  he returned that the woman was not  his wife."  Lieutenant Cotirtols, of N'o. 5 station, was notified of the ense about  3:30 o'clock, and detailed Officers Roland Mngenu to make an Investigation.  The men came just about thc time the  ambulance had started for the hospital, and from Mrs. Irwin learned the  facts in substance as already related.  Coroner McMahon was also notified,  and after hearing the circumstances,  ordered St. Onge detained as a witness. The man was taken to No. 5  station, where he made a statement  to the police, and in the evening was  sent to the central station. "St.  Onge," Lieutenant Courtois said last  night, "told trie he left the woman  because he could  not marry her."  The cmiple^_tlie_police__sa������._forniQEly.  "lived ih a boarding house on,St. Antolne street, previous to which, according to what Mrs. Seuecal told  Mrs. Irwin, she and St. Onge had  travelled extensively. St. Onge is  said to be prominent in commercial  circles, aad has a large account with  the Bank of Montreal.  a time' of excitement here. Four  ladrones came into the town and as-  sasinated a'native who was friendly  to the Filipinos but who was suspected of having given information to  the soldiers. The.soldiers were in  time to catch one of the robbers and  he confessed. A few days later they  eaught the other three, and a public  hanging is expected within a few  days.  "About 12 o'clock the same night  the insurgents went into Cabatuna, a  town about 10 miles up the line, and  set it oh fire. The American soldiers  were able to save nothing but the  cnu'fch atfd-v.the-. .convent, to which  they had retreated and-entrenched  thmselves. The hospital arid- .barracks were among the buildings  burned.  "As a result of the investigation  which followed, the presidente of the  town was arrested, as it had been  found that he furnished the insurrect-  os with native police uniforms. The  president has been found guilty and  another hanging is due.  "Early this morning there was a  big fire in the western part of the  island, and a village called Buga, was  destroyed. Six natives were killed  and 200 head of carabons were carried off, after 40 had been killed.  "The 38th volunteers have a lieutenant colonel named Crane, who is  from Texas, and he is causing great  terror among the natives up tho  island. Lieutenant Conger, with  Gordon's scouts, also is doing fine  work, aud no treacherous Insurrecto  is spared. You cannot trust any  native, and whenever one goes out  after dark he takes a revolver or a  rifle, as any clujnp of bushes or  bamboo Is likely to secrete assassins."

Benet has ordered a  special term of the court of sessions  to meet at Anderson on March 7. to  receive thd report'of the grand jury  he has clwrged to investigate the  "shameful practices" and "stockade"  scandal/ of Anderson county. In  charsins the grand jury to make a  thorough and fearless investigation,  the judge said he had heard rumors  pf the condition of slavery_'. iu" that  county, but the'evidence-brought out  during.-'the week in the trial of Jas.  Newell.', a farmer, for the murder of  Will Hull, a negro, "astonished the  court." _.,;,..  The judge stated that Hull' had been  killed white atttempting to escape  from TewellV. stockade, and that ho  was not a convict, but held a prisoner under Jabor contract, that gavo  the, landlord every right ever claimed by a master over slaves. Hull had  run away aud cone home, where ho  was arrested at thc instance or  Newell hy a constable, and by that  constable taken to Newell's stockade,  instead oC tho jail, and turned over  to Newell"1* guards. Later, when he  again atempted to escape, he was  killed.  The judfrn said "'lie was informed  that not only mon. but women and  children, wero held in this bondasre.  He read the labor contract in force  in Anderson, saying it could hold iu  no free country, no court would permit a mr.n to barter himself aa a  chattel: and this thoy had clone here.  The conn-act. besides allowing, tho  use of fores and subjecting the laborer  lo "plantation regulations" which  permitfed whlnplnsr. contains this  clause: ;  "The ������said landlord shall have tb<>  right to transfer his interests iu thin  contract to any other party, and J  agree to contimm tn work for th������  said assignee thn same as_for the  original  party of tlio first part."  It is understood that the wealthiest men in tho country are involved.  The judy;? urged the jury to see that  justice was done to the negroes, who  should be considered the wards of  the  whiles.  "There are said to be stockades in  your county." he tnld them, "without  a single convict, yet filled with men  guarded r.s convicts, worked us convicts, punished as convicts, and sometimes shot as IC felons escaping from  prison  and  the  custody of  the  law."

The letter  is dated December 23. 1000. ond It  says In part:  "An expedition started out on this  island.

"A week ago last Friday night was  ��������� est consumers of beer, and they have  latterly been regarding. their favorite  beverage Yery shyly. Brewers and  publicans are not exhibiting' wise  diplomacy ln dealing with the  stuation. The walls of ono of the  cities largely affected were a short  time ago covered with placards of a  big firm of public-house pwnera who  brew their own beer, to the effect that  the only ingredients used were hops  and malt. At a subsequent Inquest on  the body of a victim of arsenical  poisoning, it came out that the beer  was regularly obtained from one of  thiB particular firm's houses, and  they admitted in evidence that they  had made use of the incriminated  materials. "   "���������-  - To their credit it must be said that  the. moment the discovery was made,  they turned every drop of beer in  their establishment Into the sewers,  but that hardly Justified their subsequent placard .  The British public is supposed to  be strongly protected from this sort  of thing by a very stringent adulteration act. An unfortunate milk' dealer,  whose milk' is found to contain water,  or bread seller whose bread has got  in them potato flour, or alum, or other  foreign substances, Is shown no consideration on the plea or ignorance  unless he can. produce a written warranty of purity from the original  vendor, in wheh case it is the latter  who is made liable. Under these acts  prosecutions were entered against a  number of publicans, but tho powerful and wealthy associations which  Exist for Their Protection  at once  put  forth  every  effort,  and  empoyed  one  of    the   most  eminent  London counsel    to defend tho cases  and raise legal quibbles.     The result  so far is that two magistrates, both  excellent  lawyers,    well-qualified  to  deal with the matter, have arrived at  directly opposite decisions, and It has  now  to  be  dealt with    by a,higher  court.      The' brewers    seem to hav������  made a grave mistake    ln their own  interst-in defending the cases at alL.  as had they allowed their consumers  to .submit to conviction,  and to pa7  .the n'ot very onerous fines that would  have  been  inflicted,  lt    would . have  been  an  admission  on-theii- part  of  of their liability for Selling dangerous  liquor, and public'confldence would In  some degree have   been    restored to  them. Now they stand in the position  of being rable ' to    plead    ignorance,  which -has'   been  - accompanied by a  great amount of negligence, and th'ero  is no guarantee that all of   them, will  exercise the care they ought In future.  To what- extent the trade has b������en  affected it is impossible at present to  say. because brewers are hardly liker  ly/to take the public Into ..their confidence as to. the'falling'off in their  sales. That,will be revealed, however,  later. _>s it is a matter of. national as"  ;well as individual importance, no Inconsiderable    part    of    the    revenue  being raised from beer so that when  the chancellor of the exchequer makes  his   next   budget   statement   he   will  have  to say how many barrels paid  duty during the year.     That the falling off has been   considerable is well  known, ancl in the present state of the  national  finances the loss ot revenue  will  prove    serious.       Two    million  barrels   will  not be an  excessive  reduction, and the outy involved on that  quantity  is      upward   of       i"75G.000.  Truly,  great  oaks  from   little  acorna  grow.      Who  could    have     imagined  that  the  carelessness  or  greed  of a  manufacturer of sulphuric acta would  have created such a commotion la the  ranks  of  the  strongest  and   Dest organized   trade    in the world,  or that  the arrangement of the treasury could  have  been   upset?      Tbe  consequence  may be far reselling, because any loss  of revenue from reduced consumption-  will have to' be made good  by nigher  duties, and a real step may ne Laken  in the direction of putting an end to  habits of excessive drinking.  Gentlemen: I have received from an  official of your road an annual pass  over your lines in. this state .and-I  hereby return same to you for the  following reasons, to wit: That the  giving of passes is generally considered as an attempt to influence legislation or to head oft! blackmail. -As  a taxpayer of this state you are as  much entitled to my services In the  legislature as is any other taxpayer,  and that without extra remuneration.  At the same time 1 should not pay  more consideration to your wishes  than to those of the most humble  citizen, even though you are willing  to pay me for so doing, and I do not  wish to be in any way placed under  obligation to those wishing favors.  When I accept favors 1 wepect to return favors. Personally, I like to be  neighborly, but as an official I have  no favors to give and none to ask.  "The state pays me for my time  and furnishes me with transportation  necesasry. ��������� The constitution makes  it unlawful for me to accept a pass.  If we, the lawmakers of the state,  refuse to obey the foundation law of  the state (the constitution) how can  .we expect people to oDey the laws we  pass?  "If it is right for mo to accept  passes, the law should provide for the  enforcement of the duty, and-not leavo  It to you to confer them as favors  upon individual members.  "If tho constitution is ut fault and  members should be allowed to accept favors of money or lrs equivalent  In passes, presents, etc., from those  wishing special legislation, we, tne  representatives, should refer the matter to the people and allow them to  change the constitution, and if the  conBttutlon Is right we should pass a  law to enforce the provisions of the  constitution ln relation t>> passes and  to bribery.

THE STORY OF SULLIVAN  '���������* -A Desperado of the First Water���������For  Eight Years'He Was a Night-  Mare to the Settlers���������He had  Committed Five Murders.  The verdict of a coroner's jury at  Kochiching, on the northern border  of Minnesota, has closed one of the  most fascinating chapters in the history of that wild region, wherein the  condition of life are about as primitive as those which confronted Adam  in the garden of Eden, outside a few  villages that have been created out  of mining industry and capital.  Frank Sullivan, the terror of the  country about Lake Kabetogama, has  passed in his checks. A shotgun  loaded with buckshot in the hands of  of Will Randolph did the business  for Sullivan, who had almost convinced the settlers of the region that  he bore a charmed life.  Sullivan had been shot at, cut,  stabbed and battered until his physiognomy bore but slight resemblan������e  to its orglnal contours. He was a  squaw man with four or five half  Indian children, and he lived on Ash  creek, which discharges its waters  into Kabetogama.  For the last' eight years Sullivan  had been a nightmare to the country  adjacent to his* domicle. He was a  one armed man. Nobody .knew  where he came from originally, but  it is on record "that he lost his arm  while dynamiting fish in the big lake.  His partner, who was working with  him at the time, was blown to atoms  by the explosion.  George  Hillyer  and  J.  H.  Hill, of  the  Alice   mine,. in  the   Seine _ river  country, are at Minneapolis. '    Hillyer -kndws  the  whole  country  from  Tower to Fort Francis and is familiar  with practically everybody in it.     He  tells the  story  of Sullivan's, demise.  Randolph Held Him in Contempt.  It appears that of all  the men ln  that region there   was only one who  profesed   contempt   for ���������  the    professions  of  Sullivan. ;   That  the "'latter  was  a; bad  man ' Will   Randoph  was  willing' to "agree,: but   that   Sullivan  had  any  right to terrorize - the  community Randolph denied.     fn fact it  ���������- was understood  that if Sullivan  and  Randoph ever met there would be a  ' fight in which one man or the other  would lose his life.  Last autumn Sullivan became a  passenger on one of Randolph's boats  from Koochiching ��������� to Mine Center.  The boat did not stop at Rainy Lake  City, and Sullivan insisted on. being  put ashore at the latter point. Randolph refused to change his course  to please Sullivan, and the latter  drew a revolver with the object of  .enforcing hiB demands. ��������� He was  promptly  disarmed'and tied  up.  At that time Sullivan swore to kill  Randolph -on /.sight. A few weeks  ago . the men ..met on a-, trail not far  froni Rainy Lake.. .Sullivan at, once  opened 'flre with a revolver, wounding Randolph twice, once in the arm  and .again in the- hip. Randolph  reached for a shotgun which lay  ' ready loaded in the bottom of his  waggon. ��������� He took tvo pot shots at  Mr. Sullivan,' and filled the latter so  full of lead that he novel* turned  over.  The news of Sullivan's death created something in the nature of a sensation in the country. Many of the  'Indians believed hire immortal, and  scores of white men would travel  miles out of their way to avoid meeting him. Randolph became the hero  of the hour and the coroner's jury  which was, convened at Koochicing  reflected the -popular sentiment' when  it returned-a verdict of justifiable  homicide.  During Sullivan's residence in    the  log house .on  Ash  creek  there have  been   five   brutal '  murders   within   a  ���������ri_ie-sho������--of-:-his-place.-=;-In-one-ease  the   method   was     so   revolting   that  - strenouous  efforts were made to' discover the  murderer,  but  though suspicion  was  strongly  dicected  iigainst  Sullivan no evidence could be i.rocur-  ed on which to base an arrest.   It was  currently   commented   all    over    the  region, however, that Sullivant com-  . mitted   all' the   inexplicable    crimes  which   had   spread terroir all   along  the border, and the man himself had  been- known  to  point  to  his   record  as evidence that'any' threats he made  would be carried out.  "There Is no doubt," said 'Mr. Hillyer yesterday, "that the death of  Sullivan will be of advantage to the  country. Ills reputation was spread  all over the north and men were  , afraid to carry money into the coun-  " try for there hud been too many  mysterlotiB murders and robberies on  the trail.  "I knew Sullivan very well personally. 1 have ridden, before now, 50  miles with him In a wagon over the  trail from      ,   Tower, north,  and once I had him hired as. a canoe  piolt, but. he got drunk on ourwhis-  .    key,.and  out of respect    for    his reputation   we   permitted   him   to   stay  drunk as long as he liked. ' In fact,  _'   thc longer he stayed drunk   thc better we liked him.    On the other hund  - wo were mightly glad to get him out  of the boat when we reached our destination.  "Still I must say tiiat- thc fellow  had some good traits. He would tako  a man in who was'night bound, feed  his horses, give him n bed and send  him ,oft up the trail next\ morning  without asking' for pay. But if the  man had money and Sullivan knew  it there might he a little holdup to  vary the monotony.  "Randolph, who killed Sullivan, Is  one of the most lawabidlng and one  of the most' fearless men in the whole  north country- He has nothing to  regret- in having removed "Sully"  from the face of the'earth."  THE LEGAL ASPECT.  Important Light Thrown Upon the Man  itoba Railway Deal.  SLANDER ON THE BRITISH  Stein anb DeWet Pnblish a Proclama-  mation. - Hypocritical Document,  The following proclamation has heen  issued by President Steyn and General De Wet:  "Be it known to all men that the  war which has been forced on the  Transvaal republic t>y the British  government  still   ranges   over   South  Winnipeg, Feb. 26.���������Questions as to  the power of the Canadian Northern  railway to contract with the Manitoba government as to rates to be  charged have heen submitted by telegraph to Messrs. Christopher Robinson. C. F. Shepley, A. B. Aylesworth  and Wallace Nesbitt, K. C.'s. Toronto.  These eminent counsel have given  opinions but add: "We think, however, forther Information and more  time for consideration desirable."  First. Can the Canadian Northern under existing legislation by contract transfer to the province, as proposed by the agreement, the right for  thp lieutenant governor in council to  fix  rates? .  Answer:    No.  Second. If not, can such agreement  be made binding by provincial legislation alone?'  Answer:    No.  Third. Can the prorinclal legislature without assistance from the Dominion parliament, authorize the  courts to direct specific performance  of agreemnt as to freight rates, as  contemplated by section nine of the  contract?  Answer: If the foregoing answers  are right, specific performance would  not be decreed.  Fourth. If -the province parted  with the guaranteed bonds, but failed  ln obtaining Dominion legislation  ratifying the rate agreement, would  the province be liable to the innocent  holders of bonds without having any  power to fir rates?  Answer:     Yes.  'Fifth. If the Dominion parliament  ratifies the entire contract except;as  to rates: and the company used ' its  Dest endeavors,, as in paragraph four,  to ,obtain legislation ratifying rate's,  but failed, would there be any breach  6f covenant by the company?  Answer:   No.  Sixth. Sub-section 10. section 92,  British North America act, provides  that the provinces -shall have no, authority-to legislate-respecting Dominion'railways. . Can the Dom*!.iori  change this, .or would anv change in  the British 'North America act require the.eonsent of all ,the provinces  and the Imperial parliament as -wall  as the Dominion? ' .  Answer:    No ^-  Question seventh relates to the  mortgage, which la now heing prepared for signature by the company. To  some objections that have been raised by opponents of the bargain it has  b'cen answred' that the mortgage  would cover the point made. For instance, objection has been made that  there is no provision in the contract  requiring the Canadian Northern to  operate their roan's. It is ��������� asserted  that this and other provisions will be  incorporated in the mortgage. Question seven, therefore, asks the counsel  can the governor insist on this mortgage in any way altering the provision of the contract, or is his right of  approval limited to a mortgage .strictly in accordance with -th*5 contract,  but securing by necessary provisions  thc carrying out of the terms of the  contract by the company?  Answer: The mortgage must conform to the contract.  This last answer appears'to mean  that either party has the right to  have the mortgage conform entirely  to the contract, but it ' cannot bs  taken to mean that the parties may  not prepare and sign a mortgage  which will contain provisions for the  greater security of the province If  the company ts willing to do so.  This is the alleged present intention  of the parties, and the upholders of  the contract also say that many of  the defects alleged in. the contract  are covered by the railway act of  Cauda, and that the contract cannot  beexpected to Include all the law on  the subject.  ���������   As to -thu .first    questions,  dealing  with   the   constitutional   point,   they  seem-to be based on a possible failure  to   obtain 'the" Dominion '' legislation  validating contemplated provincial legislation ancl agreements.      On    what  grounds - the  Dominion  would   refuse  such  legislation   is 'not  pointed   out.  The-Dominion subsidy act and the  railway act vest the aboslute control  of_rates^-in=-the--governor���������general-=in  council,  and this    may    be    thought  sufficient not only- to  justify but to  require the Dominion government to  refuse legislation giving the province  any   control.      But   the   method   by  which thc Dominion control is exercised, ,as provided by the act." is  by  the submlsison^of the rate bylaw of  the company to,the railway committee at Ottawa. It seems possible that  the terms of such a bylaw might be  agreed  upon    between   ^the  province  and   the   company   before   such   submission..    By this way thc provincial  control 'might be  exercised. - and  the  idea     -that    the    railway committee  would disaprpove' of such rates sugr  gests  only    In   csjse   the    committee  thought them too'high.     Such a contingency can only raise  iu  this case  if the whole scheme is to be a failure,  and the province finds it necessary at  thc same time  to raise ihe' rates in  order  to  obtain  a  revenue   sufficient  to meet the charges against the road.  Again,   it might  be  made to  appear  the present contract is an improvident  one for the province, that the revenues   of  the  province, are  certain   to  be called on to   make up deficits beyond   their   power.       If     this     view  were taken by thc Dominion government  there  might,   be  found'   In  it  sufficient ground     for   disallowance.  The revenue" of the province is made  up chiefly, of the Dominion  subsidy.  On the failure ot the revenue to meet  a deficit on the    railway    guarantee,  the most natural"source of Increased  revenue    would      bo    the    Dominion  treasury.      But the principle u������ provincial  autonomy    seems    to Include  the power of.a province to make improvident  bargains,   bo    that    ju-ool  even of the certainty of such a result  from the present bargain can scarcely  be held a sufficient    ground  for disallowance. -*  Africa, that all the customs of civil  lzed warfare and also conventions of  Geneva and The Hague are not observed  by the enemy,  who have not  scrupled, contrary to the Geneva convention, to' capture doctors and ambulances and deport them in order to  prevent    our    wounded from getting  medical  assistance:     that they  have  seized ambulance material appertaining thereto:    that they have not hesitated   to   have  recourse  to  primitive  rules of warfare, contrary to the solemn   agreement   of   The   Hegue.     to  arrest neutrals and deport them,    to  send out marauding bands to plunder,  burn   and   damage   burgher's   private  property; that they have armed Kaffirs  and natives and used them against us  in the war:    that they have been continually capturing women and children and old and sickly men, and  that  there have been many deaths among  the   women     because     the   so-called  Christian   enemy   had   no   consideration for women on    a sick    bed. or  whose   state   of   health   should   have  protected  them   against rough  treatment.    Honorable women and tender  children have not only  been treated  roughly  but have  been    insulted  by  soldiers by  order    of    their officers.  Moreover,   old   mothers   and   women  have   been   raped,    even    wives  and  children, and the property of prisoners of war, even of killed burghers,  has not been respected.    In many instances the  mother  and father  have  been taken, the house has been left  unprotected, and all have been left to  their fate, an easy prey to savages."  "The  world has  been  untruthfully  Informed by tho enemy that they have  been  obliged  to    carry  out this  destruction  because  the   burghers  blew  up the lines, cut .the wires and misused the white flag.   Nearly all    the  houses in the republics have been destroyed, whether in the- neighborhood  of the  railroad or not..   The 'alleged  misuse of the white flag is simply a  continuance   of  the'.everlasting   calumny  against which  the Afrikander  has.had'to strive since the time God  brought him  into    contact with  the  Englishman.'   Robbing   his - opponent  of goods only does  not -satisfy him.  He is not. satlsfled\-until he has robbed  him  of  his  eood   name.    Also;  they  state to the world that the republics  are conquered- and that only here and  there   small     plundering    bands   are  continuing the strife" in an irresponsible manner.   This is an untruth.   The  republics  aro  not    conauerod.      The  war  is   not  finished.      The    burgher  rorce of the  two  republics    are  still  led   by   responsible  leaders,     as  from  the  comencement  of  the  ���������war.  under  the  supervision     of   thf*   governments  of both republics.  "The fact that Lord Robert;; ancl  Lord Kitchener choosing the term  "marauders" ��������� in designating the  burghers does not make them such.  When was the war over? Perhaps  after the battles in which the irregulars captured the enemy and totally  vanquished them. The - burghers'  would be less than men if tbey allowed the enemy to go unpunished after  ill-treating their wives and destroying their. - houses from sheer lust  of destruction. Therefore a portion  of the burghers resent. All Cape  Colony will not only wage war, but  will be in a position to make reprisals as it has already done.  "In the case of ambulances, there-,  fore, we warn the officers of his majesty's troops that unless they cease  the'destruction of the property of the  republics we will WFeak vengeance  by destroying the property of his majesty's subjects who are unkindly disposed. But in order to avoid being  misunderstood, we hereby openly declare that their wives and children  shall always go unmolested, in spite  of anything done by his majesty's  troops. We reouest nothing from  our brothers in the colony, but call  on them, as well as on the civilized  ���������world.to assist on behalf of our joint  civilization and Christianity in putting an end to the.barbarous manrcr  of the__snemy's warfare.  , "Oiir prayer alwavs will, be that  God, our Father, will not desert us  In this unrighteous strfe.

The members of the  camp which owns the "goat" supposed that the matter was settled  and that Dorch was satisfied. After  his recovery he brought suit against  the order, claiming that his work as  a tailor was seriously interfered  with, and that he would never be  able to make the good wages he  once demanded.  A similar action was brought against  the Maccabee order some time ago,  and the result of that trial was that  the injured candidate was given a  verdict of $5000.  The Modern Woodmen claini that  their 'goat" is not dangerous. "All  a man has to do Is to hold on ancl  he is safe," said one of the witnesses  who had gone through the mill.  "There isn't any danger if one follows . the Instructions. When I felt  myself going round and round all I  thought about was holding on."  Dorch made the mistake of getting  his hand under the wheel. His finger  was badly smashed. He signed a release, it was claimed by the Woodmen, but Dorch said he did not.  This trial has attracted the attention of secret societies all over the  country. How far the responsibility  of a degree team extends when an  unpleasant ocurrence spoils the  evening's fun is a question that the  courts have been called upon very  few times to decide.

Failure to repay the money which had ' _!^ryesjt.  been paid him by the .Woodmen, before bringing a suit for damages, le-  sulted in the non-suit.  Judge Gates called attention to the  fact tha������ the previous case decided in  the upper court, showed that failure  to repay the money received as a benefit was a bar to an action for  damages. Mr. Kearnes, who represented Dorch, said that he was  ready to offer an amended .petition,  but after a consultation it was decided to take no further action. at  this time.  The jury had listened to descriptions of the "goat" and the alleged  wrongs of the plaintic for four days.  The case is one of wide importance  and is of interest to every member of  the order, which has about 7000 members in Kansas City. The action was  brought against the head camp, which  The Children of Divers Lands Frater-  inize on the Wide Prairies.  Mr. John Hawkes, the well known  journaist,l who "is editor of the Cam-  duff Gazette, writes the following interesting article In his paper:   ,  This great Canadian-west is indeed  a land of many peoples and tongues.  A very-respectable" Babel could-be or-'  ganized at a score of points in the  Territories. We know more than  one Finn who carlred a' sword  through Turkey in the RubHO-Turkish  .war.. We.once met a man 'onhorseback on a prairie "trail, who proved "to  be a Syrian from'Damasc'm the oldest  city in the world, wherein is the  street called "Straight." He had gone  in and but"of Damascus "as a boy the  same as a western lad might go in  and out. of Carnduff. On one occasion we noticed some very curious  figuring in a billiard room, and found  the pool players were Syrians, "who  were doing their own marking in the.  Yiddish fashion���������backwards. In the  unsurveyed" lands of the Beaver Hills  we partook of the hospitality of a  Frenchman who had farmed 16 years  in Algeria. Recently in West Assiniboia we met-a man not long arrived from India. Men from Australia and New Zealand are plentiful.  There is a Yorkton man who has resided in the Samoan, Islands. At a  friend's house in' Regina. the young  lady who condescended ' to wait at  table was a Maygar wlio had lived in  Constantinople. French scouts we  have met in plenty, while the young  sprigs of the British aristocracy wbo  "haw haw" so languidly but are in  such a consuming hurry to get killed  if any fighting is going on, are almost too numerous to mention. Men  of all professions and races are to be  found guiding tho plough or riding  the stock ranges.  Every European    country is represented, athough we never met a tur-  baned Turk.     We, however, were the  guest  of   a   Roumanian,   wbo   kissed  our royal hand, as did' ali>o his wife  and children.

He appears to. shine au  a domestic.  At Medicine - Hat, in West Assinhoia,  we found the dining hall of the hotel  in the possession of Jap waiters who  had displaced the' usual dining room  girl.     Going to our room we discovered a lady-like young Jap performing, the duties  of chambermaid.  Enquiry    revealed    that cooks, w-ilters,  chambermaids, and ln fact thc -whole  domestic stall., were   Japanese    men.

Having derived considerable pleasure ahd instruction from the numerous Interviews with "returned  heroes" that have been appearing of  late in the western newspapers, I  have deemed it my duty towards the  readers of The Breeze to give them  an interview all to themselves. The  "returned hero" whom I have interviewed on their behalf is Trooper  William Wilkie. of the C. M. R., a  well known leader of the cotillion in  the polite circles ot Edmonton.  . Handing in my card at the hotel I  was shown up to Trooper ��������� Wilkie's  apartments, where I found him resting on a louuge reading Maria  Corelli's Sororws of Satan. He  greeted me cordially on learning the  object of my visit and at once touched tbe annunciator for a bottle of  Scotch. Pushing a box of El Hor-  ribleuras towards me the battle-  scarred hero courteously Inquired how  they were coming. On being assured  that they were coming in carriages  he appeared relieved, and voluuteered  the information that he was   glad  to be back home.      Tho bottle  having been brought, nnd the attendant politely requested to chalk it up,  we -partook   of  two   bis   hookers   to  prepare for the work ln hand.  "You look well, Mr. Wilkie."  "I always look well," said the warrior, straightening his necktie.  "How did you like"Africa?"  "Not at all."  "Were you killed?"  "No."  "Did you suround De Wet?"  "Say���������never mind aoout that-  another drink."  "Did you corner him ai all?"  "Have a fresh cigar."  "Are  all  those lurid    stories, you  have   read   since    your    return   perfectly true " -  "Say, would you like a little water  with your whiskey?. Let me ring  for some "  "No thanm.

"Why cert'nly." cried the , trooper.  as he replenished his glass. "Tho  last time I dined' with Roberts, in  Pretoria he complimented me warmly  on the marvellous manner ln\ which  I .succeeded in rallying the troops  during the panic . at Ponokaspruit.  That'affair was after all but" a trifle,  and I think Kis Lordship over-rated  its importance. The Imperial - "Xeo-  manry, the C. I.

THE WATERWORKS DEAL.  In discussing the question of tbe  advisability of t.he purchase of thu  plant of the Revelstoke Wider, Light  c*v Power Co. by the city *me consideration must be constantly borne in mind  and tlmt is that it is a paying concern,  bringing in a high rule of interest on  the total investment. The annual net  proceeds, after wages, repairs and all  other expenditure lias been accounted  for, may he very consei vati veiy put at  $10,000 or over 12 pur cent on the total  amount expended originally or subsequently on the plant,. On the amount  which the cily is asked to pay for the  plant by the company this sum would  amount, to over 11 pur cent per annum,  which is surely as large a rate of profit  as can reasonably be asked for. And  on this head it is very important to  bear in mind that increased profit  does not at.all mean increased expenditure iu the water and electric light  business line. It may be -.iifely said  lhat the business of the company  might be trebled without appreciably  augmenting their wag-, list forinstance  which is the chief item of their regular  expenditure. The profits increase in  short faster than the expenses.  If the city then purchases the plant  it will at once come into a revenue of  at least $10,000 per annum with 11 certainty of a constant ancl considerable  increase. Out of this sum will have to  come every year $5137,57 for iuterest  and sinking fund on the purchase  money leaving we will say $4850 to,  the good. Now the city has to start  in; immediately to obtain a separate  waterworks system for fire protection  purposes, out-of which the'individual  ratepayers will no doubt derive some  benefit in the shape of lower insurance  rates but from which nothing in the  way of direcL profit to the corpora  tion itself can possibly be expected.  If we do not 'purchase the company's  plant the city will either, as the  Herald pointed out in its last issue,  have to put the. system in itself and  take' some $2500 or more a year out of  the ratepayers' pockets to pay the  sinking fund and interest on the  tnoiic'y borrowed to do the woik or  else pay the company 10 per cent, on  the money invested or about N $3300 .a  year, to doit for them. But if we  oiirchase this plant we shall be itXt'.e to  pay the iuterest on the money which  it will be necessary to borrow for this  work out of the profits derived, from  the water unci electric light business  and still have a surplus of $2350 to the  good, which would" be available for  extending the system and thus become  the means ot gaining further profit to  tbe city. The city will acquire a  valuahln asset, it will provide ' the  necessary fire protection, which must,  in Miy case be provided and that HI  unce and it will leave a surplus in  hand. Aud all this without costing a  single ratepayer a cent. The Herat..!)  altogether fails to sec* what better bargain can be reasonably demanded.  r  I Just a  I Spoonful  OF DR.
