STRATHCONA'S  WELCOME HOME !  A Spokane Man on the Mining- Situation in Kootenay.���������An Uphill Fight  Against Mischievous Legislation and  Extortion,  F.

Those that are still running will lo  fenced to.close within" a short time, as  will also the sirielter, on" that side-of  the line.- This state of affairs lias been  brought about by ii combination of'  circumstances. "The action of the  American Smelting it Refining company in raising the smelting rates and  a corresponding raise ot the refining  rales is the'final act that forced the  mines to close.  "The silver-lead resources of British  Columbia are- the ereatest of any  district in the world. Since the commencement of their development,  about 10- years ago, almost every  stroke of the pick has been made under  the most adverse circumstances.

Griesbach, a recently returned member ot the Canadian Mounted  Rilies, gave an - address in Edmonton  tho othei- day. entitled "Oar Friends  the Enemy," of which we quote the  concluding remarks :  "Tliey civile of a great race these  people. A race famous in history for  their love nt freedom and stubborn  bravery and in the life of the pioneer  and the colonist that 1 ace has siitferecl  no deterioration. Let us not forget  thai tliey uie fighting for lhe giealest  and most .sacred cause for which men  can light���������the cause uf liheity. We  pride ourselves upon the lonrage and  siiiying powers of mir snldieis and  rightly so too, for the woild has not  seen better soldiers than the Jiiilisli  soldier, but il, seems to me that tinman, who tor home and Ireeiloin. .1  lost cause, lies out on the kopjes  huiigiy, cold, diity. weary and heart  broken aud yet lull of fight is posse-sod  of as high courage and as great slaying  power as the exultant, volunteer scciu e  in Iho knowledge of ultimate vietoiy  and backed by the immense resources  of a mighty Einpiio.

This war is  drawing to a close, lt has been the  greatest, st niggle of the limes and we  have learned many valuable lessons  from "Onr Friends* the Enemy."' In  this campaign the European nations  have sat on the fence ; perhaps they too  have in ofited and perhaps they nave  not. it may be that, in the not verv  dislani future one' or perhaps moie of  these nations will run up against the  Biitish army, this British army which  has hoen.lo them a jest and a continual  source of amusement, 1uud when tbey  do, bcPove 1110' ladies and gentlemen,  they will receive a jolt' in the solar  plexus which they won't "get over for  many a long day.

Owing to the milliner,  in which they are arriving by one's and  two's and the lack of any knowledge of  the dates of their return beforehand it  has been impossible to  organize  anything    -in    the   nature of   a   public  demonstration and reception.   At the  sayie   time  the   HEltA...r> need hai dly  assure the hoys that this is due  to   no  lack of appreciation on lhe part of the  citizens   of Revelsloke  of the gallant  services  rendered   by    their    famous  corps  to the  Empire.    Their splendid  leader is an officer  whose name   some  sixteen   years   ago   was   a  household  word along the line of construction  of  the C. P. R. from   Laggan   to   Revelstoke iind'hiter in 'S7 and 'SS throughout  East   Kootenay.  wheie the now  nourishing    town  " of    Fort.     Steele  commemorates  his name.    In  every  possible   way   the  .Strathcona's  were  identified with   Western   Canada and  there   was   no corps   serving in South  Africa whose doing were followed with  greater interest throughout this  province.   They  have  nobly sustained the  honor of the West and" the  name  of  Western men.   Revelstoke is proud to  have     furnished    its    contingent    to  Strathcona's Horse 'and: to welcome  her own members of tho corp9 back in  her midat.  snielted and refined, aud for this  privilege the United States government, taxed the mine-owner S15 per  t in on his lead; the British Columbia  government taxed him two pet- cent  on the value of liis output.

It is no������ at all probable that Mr.  Sifton -will bring any more Doukhobors to Canada. They don't seem to  have been exactly a success.  Their advent was heralded far and  ���������wide as the arrival of poor persecuted  Christiana, who tor conscience sake  were flying trom the tyranny of the  creat white czar. They were' given  assisted passages to Canada. Land  ���������was allotted -to them in the garden  spots ot the North West, and all went  along as well as possible. Lady philanthropists visited them and went  into ecstacies over their picturesque  if somewhat barbarous costumes. The Philadelphia Quakers were also aroused and  appearing to recognize some religious  affinity between themselves and the  Doukhobors, sent them large sums  of money.  For a while ail went well and Clifford Sifton posed as the liberator of  a noble people from an intolerable  bondage.  Of late "however, a change ha3 come  over  the' scene.     Shortly  after  their  arrival it became apparent that    the  Doukhobors   were   not   all   that   was  claimed  for   them   and   for   the   last  year or more they have been kicking  tip ln good style, proving dead weights  around the neck of the minister who  doubtless   now   curses    the  day    he  first heard of them. Homesteads were  allotted them in the most fertile portion of the country, but they objected,   informing   the   government   that  it was contrary to the laws of heaven  to  hold  land  otherwise    than as    a  community.   It was in vain that they  were informed  that as  soon as  each  homesteader   got   his  title  he  might  turn In his -farm to the community.  They replied  that   by so doing they  were sacrificing a principle which   no  besotted  goTernment - would  ever  Induce  them  to   do.    This  matter  was  keld ln abeyance, the harassed minister  trusting  that  the  worthy  Russians   might   be  induced  to   see   the  matter   in  another light.  But  in  the  meantime another thing cropped   up,  viz..  the marriage    question  and  on  i-hat abject the Doukhobors were   Inflexible.    They   could     not  see   why  there should be any civil or religious  celebration   of   the   matrimonial   tie,  an  fact  they   declared   that  anything  mi the  sort was  abhorrent  to    God,  and   contrary   to   their  religion,   and  .Siey  would    not    tolerate    lt for  a  moment.

The unsophisticated  breed is known to be particularly  susceptible to talk of this nature ai\d  Mr. Prudhomme Is reported to have  made a number of converts. It was  known, however, that several of the  Halfbreeds remained staunch to Mr.  Davin and two gentlemen, Messrs.  Marlett and Challoaer, went down to  Willow Bunch to represent him at  the polls. The emmlsaarles of Mr.  Scott, however, had them arrested on  some trumped up charge of trying to  debauch (?) the electorate with  whisky. They were kept in durance  vile until after election day, and the  Liberals wero ln a position to do as  the������- pleased at the polls, were hauled  beforo a magistrate, committed of a  contravention of the election law and  received a sentence. Both Mr. Chal-  loner and Mr. Marlett protested loudly that tho whole affair was a Grit  election dodge and carried their  case to the Supreme Court with the  result tnat tne conviction was quasneci.  It is now in order to mako some one  smart pretty severely and it is to be  hoped that In the Interest of justice  and electoral purity the matter will  not be allowed to drop.  ��������� o   AN INCONSISTENT POLICY  Sir Wilfrid Laurier and other members of his government have delivered eloquent and glowing specehes  wun   regaru   to  uanaairK   loyalty  to  the Empire. Tho premier's smooth  speeches on the war questions have  been heralded far and wide by tho  Liberal journals who with a triumphant "told you eo" inflection hava  pomteti to tnem ns evidences or  tho Imperial spirit of, Canada's first  minister.  Talking, however, Is cheap and with  Iris dramatic Instinct Sir Wilfrid loses  no opportunity to pose before the  people of the Dominion, but he fails  to back up his talk by actions.  He has no reward to offer to Col.  Sam Steel'o for his services to tho  Empire which have been so great as  to warrant and receive the thanks of  the sovereign, save permission to return to a subordinate position in the  .North west Mounted police. The  case of Colonel Herchmer where the  action condemns while the voice applauds, is another pointed instance.  That officer although having brought  the Mounted police to a state of efficiency never before attained was retired immediately on his return from  active service, although he had considered lt his duty to' decline a stafi  appointment in Africa that offered  ���������bim greater emoluments than did his  position as commissioner, of' tho  Mounted police. ' .  Canada cannot expect to have good  officers as long as this policy of  slighting their services is pursued.  SCATTERED TO THE WINDS  An   Old   Man    Complies    With    the  Ante Mortem Wish of His  Brother.  New York,   March   17.���������Passengers  on a Staten Island    ferry boat, who  Knew   wnat   tne   Hinguiar   actions   oc  an old man meant, stood with bared  heads Saturday afternoon' when Alexander Becker, of Brooklyn, bowed  with griet. stood with two friends on  tlie upper deck of the boat:; and threw  to the winds the ashes of "his twin  brother Louis, who died on February  24. The body of Louis, according to  his wish was cremated. The scattering of his ashes waa done because of  a codhil to his will filed in the Surrogate's office in Brooklyn last Wednesday.     It read:  "I loied the sea all my life, and  when I dio I want my ashes to be  scattered over the Atlantic ocean."  In obedience to the request. Alex-  anaer, witn nis inenas. iionraea .a-  Staten Island ferryboat intending to  scatter the ashes in the lower bay.  When off Robbins Roef they found  the wind then blowing would not  carry the ashes out to the Atlantic  acean. Thoy remained on the boat  and made several trips. Their frequent inquiries of the deck hands  hands about the wind attracted attention, and when they reached Robbins Reef for the third time they  found tlie wind was blowing westerly, and the old man with his friends  went out on the upper deck. They  were followed by many passengers,  among them 13. . il. Muiler, county-  clerk of Richmond county, and Councilman Joseph O'Gratly.  Becker slowly took from his pocket  a small package which he opened. All  the   passengers    saw    was   a     small  amount of dust.      No one spoke, but  all took off their hats as Becker, looked at tho opening package, and then,  with tears running down his wrinkled  -cheeks.-held-it-out-as-far---a3-hIs= arm-  could stretch.      The high wind blew  the ashes away in a    twinkling, and  the paper followed, but this dropped  into thc water, while the ashes went  on towards  the ocean, and the cher-  is:iea   wish   ot   jl,ouis     tseciter    was  granted.  Louis Eecker was a chemist who  after accumulating a fortune in this  country, retired and began to indulge  his passion for travel on the ocean.

Ho then made  his home in Brooklyn, but every day  lie walked to Coney Island and Razed  on the ocean for hours.

Just when  it would seem the robbers would succeed in getting away Cashier Ryan  leaped forward in an attempt to  knock up the revolver of the man  with the money. In the scuffle four  shots were fired and Ryan fell to  the floor shot through the groin by  bullet from the pistol of Rowe.  Mr. Faustenbaugh grabbed Rowe  and after a ahort scuffle threw him on  the floor.   Keeper ran out of tho door.  The noiso of tho shots attracted  J. F. Leiter, who has a store near  the building. He ran out with his  shot gun and pursued Keeper for a  block and shot him in the back of  the head, when the robber surrendered.

Hungarian Nobleman Gave a  Gift to the Prince of Wales  The Hungarian journalist and politician, Kornel Abranyii'in his paper.'  Pestl Naplo, giv&s somo interesting  details of a visit which King Edward  paid to Hungary many years ago.' Thn  king repeatedly declared that when out  ot England ho felt nowhere so much  at home as ln Hungary, and he was  often pleased to accept invitations  from Count Tassllo Festetics or  Count Stephen Karolyi, wth whom he  had many friends.  Once whon he was at dinner in  Count Karolyi's Budapesth house ho  refused the costly French. German  and Spanish wines, that were offered  to him. and with all the courses  drank the white tablo wine which  he had tasted after the soup, and  declared that no wine over suited hia  tasto so well.  After dinner he asked the count  where he could order a reasonable  quantity of this wine. Count Karolyi, with Hungarian pomposity, an  swered: "The wine is nowhere to  bo had: it has either been drunk to.  the last drop or else jealously guarded; the vines which produced it are  all destroyed by the phylloxera, and  whether new plantations will ever  produce the samo quality again Is  uncertain. What I have of it was left  by my father in the cellars of "Neigy  Karolyi, and I do not know how  much that ia.  Nothing more was said. but. next  day Count Karolyi travelled to Neigy  Karolyi. called the manager of .the  cellar, and asked him: "How'much  more have we of the Bakator from  Ermellek?"  "Of the family wine?" tho butler  asked. "Well, just so much that it  will last us to tho end of our lives."  "The question is, how long do you  expect we shall live?"  "Should God give us a hundred  ���������years to live, even then the wlnn  would last to the end."  "But suppose- I did not expect to  live one hundred years: suppose I  thought 80 was enough, how much  wine would be left?"  -"On a rough calculation���������10 hectolitres."  "Very well, put thoso ten hectolitres into the.very best casks you  can get, take them to the railway  station, and make .ready to accompany them on a long journey."  Now, to take wine safely by rail  and by ship is. a difficult matter if  its quality is not" to' suffer. Two  weeks passed before Count Karolyi  received the. announcement that the  butler had reached England in safety  with his 10 hectoliters of white wine,  that he had tested - its . quality a.nd  had found lt ln perfect condition.  The count wrote a respectful letter  to the then Prince of Wales, informing him that 10 hectoliters of the  wine had been pleased to like in  Hungary were in England, and begged him to accept lt.  The prince expressed his delight at  the present in a letter which will be  kept - ln the count's family, but  Karolyi only learned much later how  much tho prince appreciated the gift.  About eight yeara ago Karolyi was  the prince's guest in England, and  at table he was informed that the  Batakor from Ermellek appeared on  the table Bolely in his honor. At othnr  times the prince drank it himself,  for he had also made arrangements  t(3 make it last all his life.

ROBDERY AND Ml'RDRR  a  ltobhi.1-  The London Leader o������ February  27th says:  Whon in the houae last .Friday, ln  reply to Sir E. AEhmead-Bartlett,  Lord Stanley made a detailed statement as to the number of horses sent  to South Africa, It was made apparent that justice, to say tho leant,  had hardly been done to Canada.  While the United States had been  called   upon  to   supply  20.310  horses,  "Thero is to me nothing surprising or unusual in the' cabled" announcement that Prince Chwang has  been invited to commit suicide. His  life has. it. Is said, boen demanded  by the powers. The custom of suicide for officials of China in punishment for offences has been ln vogue  from time immemorial. I suppose it  originated, in the idea of the sacred-  ness of tne person of the rulers; permitting no hand but their, own. to  punish them. Tho..method used is  generally by swallowing gold leaf.  When the death punishment has been  decided upon for an official who has  done anything to merit the royal displeasure a decree is issued sentencing  him to death. This decree is carried  out by his own hand, but If he should  not make away with himself within  a reasonable time he is publicly executed. This, however, is an exceedingly rare occurrence, as the death  deeree of the emperor la final, and officials take the most dignified way of  complying with lt.  "WU TING  FANG.  "Chinese Minister to United States."  Cable despatches from Pekln announce that Prince Chwang, a leader  ot the rebellion, has been ordered by  the dowager empress to commit suicide.  Chang was only second to the notorious Princo Tuan in aiding and  abetting the Boers. Like Tuan, he  is a member of the imperial family,  although not so closely related to  the emperor as the latter. He is  a man of considerable ability, great  ferocity and ferociously opposed to  foreigners. He supplied the Boxers  with money and ammunition.allowing  his soldiers to join them, and provoked tho assaults on the legations in  Pekin.  I Chwang is a cousin of the emperor  and a descendant' of the victorious  Manchu general who'placed-the present dynasty on the throne. He maw  be said, therefore, to mora is, "the  b'est society" in China.  ��������� The pnishment of Chwang was one  of the demands ot the powers which  the empress resisted to the last. According to the latest despatches ehe  finally consented that Prince Tuan  ancl Duke Lan should he banished  for life, and that Chwang - should be  dealt with in the 'curious manner  stated.  The career of Chwang Is perhaps  less interesting than the manner by  which he ia to die. It is an immemorial custom in the Chinese - empire  that persons ot very high rank ��������� or  birth has been Invited . to commit  suicide. XVd have often heard of the  custom in Japan nnder the name of  "hari-kari" but it is much older and  more  highly    developed     In    China.  Chinese emperors have' left immortal  examples^of delicacy and courtesy ��������� in  their letters inTltinjr their friends  and relatives to kill themselves.  Mr. Chow Tsz Chi. the Chinese  consul in New York, who speaks English admirably, explained the principal features of this singular custom  to the New York Journal. ,  "Only very great persons." said Mr.  Crow Tsz Chi; "are invited by the  emperor to commit suicide. It is  really an honor. When it becomes desirable on account of some offence  or for some other good reason that  one of these great men should leave  the world, the emperor sends him a  courteous demand to do bo.  'The reason for this method is plain.  It avoids subjecting a man of great  rank to the humiliation of a public  execution, and also avoids the disgrace that It would briug upon his  family. It is inconceivable that one  of the emperor's blood should be publicly executed. He who kills himself by imperial command dies in  honor, surrounded by his family.  "Tt Is usual, although, not. I think  invariable, for the emperor to send  his correspondent something"- with  which to kill himself. This may be a  bottle ot wine, a silken girdle or cord,  or a sword. " The wine Is to poison  him. the rope to hang him, and the.  sword to stab him.  ..."There  have, been   many._hiatorical  cases where great personages" have  been invited to kill themselves, and  never lo vny knowledge has any one  refused to ob"6y the command. Ordinarily It is a crime to commit suicido  but when the emperor . commands, it  becomes a duty and an honor. If tho  man were to refuse to obey the order  I presume he would be executed-. The  mere fact that he disobeyed the emperor would make him liable to the  death penalty."  A prominent Chinese official,    who  io   be  relations. He prays at great length  to his gods and to hia ancestors, aad  then commits Bulclde by the meUvo-C  which has boen - recommended to him  by the emperor.  As a rule he will kill, himself within 24 hours of the recipt of the mes**  sage. It is considered good form to  be prompt-in carrying out the emperor's wishes. To delay suicide many  days would bo regarded aa cowardice.  AU Chinese, who have, been consulted agree that-if. the., man failed to  kill himself he would be executed, but  such a step has never been necessary. _ ..-  .  It is important to know that a man  ordered to commit suicide by the Emperor would b������ disgraced If he performed the act by substitute. whereas  if he were condemned to be executed,  he would regard'- It as merely, a sensible act to provide a vicarious victim. Tho powers aro therefore moro  certain of vengeance through the  bulclde rescripts than if they depended on Chineso officials to execute the  offenders.  When Prlnco Chwang commit*  suicide he will atone for wnatever  misdeeds ho may havo committed by  a" supreme act of piety and devotion  to tho emperor. That la the official  and religious Chinese view ot the  matter. Therefore ho will receive a  grand funeral, with complete religious  rites, like one who has died full of  years and honors. Fires will be  kept burning upon" altora erected to  his memory for a month. They will  be lighted again at thc same time  every year by his pious descendants.  He will be laid at rest in tlio splendid  tomb of his family.  The emperor Is not the only man  In China who . Invites, people to  suicide. It seems that many prominent Chinamen are in the habit of  using this method to get rid of dependents of whom they are tired.  This, of course, is contrary to law  and religion.  The terrible old lady, the Dowager  Empress, haa ordered an appalling  number of suicides. - It is assumed  ln tho case of Princo Chwang that' the  emperor will order the suicide because  of the Importance and because tho  powers'-are-interested In him."*- Tho.  Dowager, however, ' receives their  messages,' and' is really the one who  decides what action shall .be taken. .  It is a curious fact that the Dowager is now ordering the suicide of  leading Boxers, whereas. a few  months ago, she was promoting the  suicide of those who' failed to carry  the Boxer movement to success.  On the road to Sigan Fu during the  flight of the court the Dowager de-*  graded one of the officials and ordered him not to follow the court. Somo  weeks ��������� after the arrival of the royal  party-at the present capital this official, ' whose' offenco had been' a ��������� com-  paralvely small one,, thought that she  ahd probably forgotten' all about it  and so he went to Slgan Fu.and appeared in liis usual' place. - When the  Dowager saw him, she exclaimed in a  tone of surprise: ,   .  "What, tire you alive yet?"  ..The official went off in a corner at  once and  drank  the-. contents    of. a  bottle of poison that he carried with  him  The French Huguenots refugees,  who have met in the crypt of ��������� Canterbury cathedral ever since 1550,  when a royal charter of liberty to  worship was granted to them, have  sworn allegiance to King Edward  VII. Their pastor, the Rev. Jean R.  Sarnabas, preached a memorial- service for her late Majesty, Queen  Victoria, and then, according to nn-  cient custom, the oath of allegiance  was taken, the pastor with uplifted  Hands making the solemn declaration,  to which the . people responded  "Amen."

A GAMBLER'S NERVB  PARLIAMENTARY OBSTRUCTIONISTS   DO LITTLE GOOD.  Maude Gonne. the Irish Agitalor Strongly Advocates Taking  up Arms Against England.  Maud Gonne, the Irish agitator,  has written the following to an American paper:  On this, the first St. Patrick's day  of the new century, it Is well to remember that no people have ever yet  won their freedom by talk, and how  sane men have ever believed that the  eloquence of words would hive effect  on such a brutalized people as the  English is to me inexplicable. An  unarmed woman, with no - means ot  ' calling for assistance, might as well  ask an enterprising burglar to-lay  down the gold or Jewels he had stolen  as Ireland to send members of parliament to Westminster to expose her  wrongs and ask England to leave off  robbing.  Ireland has waited nearly 30 years"  on constitutional agitation, wo oae  can say it has not had a fair trial. In  Parnell the parliamentarians had an  incomparable leader. The Irish in  America ana tne people at nomo  gave thoir full supoprt. OTor 2,000.-  000 of pounds must have been spent  ln keeping up the movement, and the  net result Is a decrease of 1.000,000 in  Alarmed politicians have hastily organized the United Irish league. The  name sounds revolutionary; lt carries  a reminiscence of tho United Irishmen of 1798. which may serve to deceive the unwary, while tho motto:  "The Land of Ireland for the People  of Ireland" is to catch the farmers.  Their methods are to be strictly legal  and constitutional.  Hero is the statement ot". policy of  William O'Brien, father ot the United  Irish 'league at his convention held  in Dublin in December. *r believe  tnat any rungnsn ministry or any  English parliament can be brought to  be themselves the flrst to agitate for  home rule' by giving them an illustration for a few years of the inconvenience of having an active Irish  party planted ln the heart of their  parliament, and of having a hostile  Irish press forever hanging on the  flanks of England to, weaken her  and to press upon her ln her first hour  of difficulty."  lt sounds warlike to talk ot "a  hostile Irish press hanging on England's flanks," but what does England care about the Irish press?   And  tho population of Ireland, and an in  crease of about 93 a head In taxation, hf the sentence about home "Mc, Eng-  The few   agrarian .reforms   which (land's difficulty,  means    anything,  it  were obtained by Parnell were due to  the vlocnce of the early days of the  land league, where landlords' and  bailiffs' lives were not easily Insurable, and not to the eloquence or our  really eloquent representatives at  Westminster, who used tneir eloquence to stay the violence of the  Irish people.  The Boer war���������or, as I should say,  the English war against liberty In  South Africa���������came upon ns while  our people were still turning tlreil and  hopeless eyes toward Westminster,  and weakly and half heartedly hoo-  raylng for the men who were to win  bloodless battles for them, but could  not do so.

'Where were the '-millions of   pounds  N which were to   have    freed Ireland?  They were" gone In breath, ln talk, in  vapor. -   The Irish people,  were   unarmed and unprepared. -    As great an  opportunity as Ii eland   can never expect for shaking off England's deathly grip was wasted, thanks    to constitutional agitation.  The Irish people have understood,  and a reaction has set ln against the  parliamentarians The circulation of  their p.-ipcis has fallen; their meetings' are unattended.

I believe war with one of the continental powers is inevitable, and ln  the event of war, there must be no  compromise in Ireland. Our .people  must not listen to politicians who  say: "Keep quiet whilst wo agitate  in parliament, ana isngiana is ner  difficulty will give you home rule.  If you commit acts of violence England will never consent to give you  anytning. anow your loyalty to  the empire, and out of. gratitude  England will reward you." And Eng-  giana s   aimcuity  wouia    pass,    ana  England would, be beaten and despised, but strong enough to hold tbe  wretcnea staves wno tried to "win  lioerty ror themselves . by shouting  or paying for it with "the blood -- of  others,' and the world would look on  Indifferent - and "contemptuous / at the  quietvdisappearance > of an old���������raee  which, once was valiant, but _ whose  courage politicians would have- destroyed. In the event of war there  must be no compromise. Irishmen  are no cowards. They have fought  and won battles for many otner  countries: they have poured out their  blood unsparingly-for America. They  will fight as bravely for their own  motherland.  It is In the din and terrible mystery  of the holy battle wind that liberty is  enshrined; It will bo through the  smoke and darkness of' battle that  Ireland will win life and regeneration  and freedom.

Ho died  in Butte a few days ago, and as Is  so often the case with members of  that calling, he died broke.  At ono time Levy was one of the  most noted gamblers in Montana. He  was a plunger, and no game was too  stiff for him to play. When fortune  was running his way, Levy had a  great bank account, and his games  had no limit. His favorite game was  poker, but faro commanded a good  deal  of his attention.  No   sport   ln    the  west  had  more  nerve than Levy, and no man had   a  more tender heart.   In the flush days  he  spent  a  vast    amount of  money  in charity, and yet few people knew  anything  about it.    The  wife  of    a  noted western congressman owes her  education  to  Levy.   But he was  not  much given to sentiment;    his trade  did   not  promote  that  characteristic.  In  1876  Levy paid a visit  to Virginia City, Nevada.   Times were flush  and  money  a drug    on  thc  market.  Con.   Virginia and  California   mines  were  paying    each    $1,080,000   every  month   in   dividends,    and   the   8000  miners on the Comstock were earning  $4 a day.   Stocks were fluctuating, and  fortunes were made and lost ln a day.  Tho very air was charged with    the  spirit of speculation.    An hour after  Levy landed in town, he was in Bill  Dormer's luxurious club rooms. There  was a air of quiet elegance about tho  place that contrasted strangely  with  the Montana houses.    Levy    thought  the house  was run merely  to  catch  the "dry gods clerks, bookkeepers and  such like.    But he concluded to take  a chance.      Taking    a    seat at the  crowded table, he Inquired a3 to what  the   limit   was.    The  dealer   glanced  at Levy, recognized a real sport, and  without saying a word, pointed to the  celling.    Then the play began.  Levy dropped ten twenties on the  king and coppered the flve -spot for  a similar sum. , They' lost on' the  turn. Five hundred dollars went down  on-the ace, but*,lt remained there  only a moment���������the dealer transferring lt to another part of lhe tablo  where a mine superintedent had won.  Levy drew from his pocket a, roll of  bills and passed over $1000, asking for  blue chips. He tried one system  after another but' somehow the cards  would not come out of the box his  way.  Another draft was made on his roll  of -bills,' and then another, and still  another. At "the end of two hours  Levy was loser to the tune of $16,500.  He arose from his seat, and was  about to. leave. He hesitated -��������� a moment, and turning toward the table  he noticed that the queen had won  three times. "Hold the deal,' please,"  ho'observed, at the same'time reaching over and placing a bill on tlir  queen. The card won. and the dealer paid the bet for J1000. Moving the  whole sum over ou tbe ace. Levy  won again.. The deal was now near  the close, and the Montana sport  calmly waited lor the last turn. It  soon came, with ten, jack and seven  in the box.      -    ,   t  "I call lt Beven-jack. for the $2000"  said Levy. It came ten-seven, and  Levy unconcernedly left the table. The  game proceeded aa though nothing  out of the ordinary had happened.  BRITISH INTERVENTION  THE CHINESE WISH BRITAIN TO AID  IN CURBING RUSSIAN DESIGNS  IN MANCHURIA.

A "Member of the Eau Claire Company  Spoken Well Of.'  ��������� (From the Phillips Times).. '  One cf our oldest loggers, I. K.  Kerr, has this'week finished his contract for banking 200,000,0.00 'feet of  pine .logs. This winter's-output of  3,000,000 feet ends his operations in  the vicinity of Phillips. Mr. Kerr  commenced his logging operations in  tuis-seetion-in-the-fall-o������-1875;-���������-He  established his first camp at the outlet  o������ the Elk, where it empties into the  south fork of the Flambeau near the  McKinley and Price farms. Hlo success as a logger has been remarkable.  From ths earliest days .of his operations, by his energy and skill, fortune  has turned the face of Mammon to  him. About 15 years ago he contracted for a job of banking a standing lot  of pine that was estimated at 200,-  000,000 feet. He entered tho_work  with the strength of a strong man  and devoted al his energies to the  work, lie was close in his business  deals, but always honest.  During the time of his operations in  and about Phillips, Mr. Kerr hns always been interested in the local affairs of our community. When con-  -.luuii.. nave permitjea ne ns,. employed men from our midst for service in his' work, and there will be  many a lumber boy from Phillip*: who  will regret that Mr. I. K.

Premonitions of a Gigantic Struggle.���������  Praying for War.  London. March 26.���������The Chinese  minister. Sir Chieh Chen Lofenra Luh,  called at the foreign oflice yesterday  afternoon and urged the British government to bring pressure to bear in  order to prevent Russia from securing  the necessary signatures to the Manchuria agreement. The government  was still in the dark last night as to  whether the agreement would be  signed or allowed to lapse when the  time expires which is today (March  62). The officials of the Japanese  legation are inclined to believe that  Kussia will succeed In getting the  necessary signatures.  Tho situation is still more complicated owinc to the fact ascertained by  u  representative  of    the \ Associated  Press that there are 2 secret treaties,  ono of which is to bi signed at St.  Petereeburc dealing with .Russia's control of the military situation in Manchuria, end onotuur to bo si&ncd at  Pekin dealing with her civil   powers.  The Chinese appeals for s.import 'have  failed to produce any direct rt:*.ponse  from  Great    Britain    or    ..pparently  from any other power to St   l-*ctor������-  burg  for  Russia persistc -,iiy  adheres  to her contention that the secret agreements concerns    no one but herself and China.       On    this    ground  Great Britain's request for copies of  the agreement was abruptly declined.  It  is  explained at the. foreign  office  here that it would be dangerotis and  useless  breach  of  procedure  to    endeavor to enter upon    expostulations  with, Russia  which    would    only be  based' upon information    supplied by  the   Chinese.       In   other   words   the  copies of such treaties    and    alleged  modifications of them recently given  to  the  powers   ,are  worthless  documents and will' remain",   sucn    until  Russia- herself  chooses  to  communicate the terms ot the  actual  treaty  and modifications.  To tho fear of domestic revolution,  is added the dread of war with China  for Japan's warships are rushing to  Corea, aha other nations stand ready  to take' part in a gigantic struggle  in the far east, where Russia . has  everything at stake. The Nihilists  are praying for war.  A scientist has  discovered  that it  is   aangerous    to Kiss    witnout  nrst  washing the mouth and lips' with an  antiseptic remedy. Upon every lip  lurks bacteria awaiting an opportunity to switch Its location. Beware  of the deadly kiss. Look not upon  tho lips when they are cherry red in  tEe moonlight, for in the end the microbes will sting you, and the bacteria will bite you into an early demise. Science is wonderful. It reveals many unknown dangers that  we have dallied with in the past, only  escaping the terrors of bacteria by an  element of luck. While science has  revealed this great danger, and provided a remedy, it has also increased  mental anxiety.     Suppose a girl with  THE MOLSONS BANK  INCORPOIV*.'  by Act or Pawuammt, 1SBB.

A case of peculiar interest to ratepayers recently occurred in Reglna.  A couple of years ago a Roman Catholic separate school district was  formed. While several of the Roman  Catholic ratepayers had been paying  taxes in the public school district debentures had been issued. The municipal authorities held tbat as -they  had assumed liability -for these  debentures their entering another  district did not discharge their liability and consequently a number of  Roman Catholic citizens were forced  to pay two sets of taxen. Appeal was  made aaginst this and a decision  has been rendered that tbe members  of the separate school district are not  liable in any extent whatever for the  debenture Indebtedness of the public  school, even admitting that they had  a say in contracting the debt. The  money paid by the Roman Catholic  ratepayers towards the debt has been  refunded by the council.   o   Vancouver has a brotherhood of  faith-curers called. Dowleltes.
