HUME  &C0  GLITTERING PROMISES  In another colinn of this issue will be  found an account of an interview with  Mr. Ed. Adair, who gives a report, of  the result of his recent visit to Eastern  Canada.' In this article matters are  touched on "of great importance to the  people of Revelstoke and the Big Bend  district. The immense value of the  very extensive timber ranges which  exist on the upper Columbia is one  point, on which he touched, which  should be kept steadily to the front.  Revelstoke is the -natural point at  whicli this timber should he converted  into the manufactured article, whether  in the shape of lumber or pulp. For  tlie manufacture of this latter article  the very largo area of spruce forest in  the valley of the Columbia and on the  slopes of tlie neighboring mountains  offers unrivalled advantages. There is  probably no place in the province  when* the pulp industry can be carried  on more successfully than at this place  nnd the attention of the government,  which is committed ��������� to a policy nt  bonussing pulp factories in British  Columbia, should be directed to this  fact.  Another point of  interest contained  in this interview is the description ^of  the mnniier, in   which   the  Dominion  government intend to expend the   fifteen thousand dollars, appropriated for  the improvement of the navigation on  the upper river.   The idea  ot   putting  one  thiid   of   this   amount  into   the  construction of a tramway  at Death  Rapids is one which must meet with  unqualified    approval.        The     only  criticism which can be offered is as  to  the  adequacy  of the   sum    of    five  thousand  dollars   for   the ' proposed  work.   However, this   may be, in the  uncertainty   which   prevails    among  those who know the ground as to the  length of tramway required   to   meet  the necessities   of  the  cise .at   these  rapids, the Herald is not prepared to  to decide.   But it certainly is a source  of gratification to find that the Dominion government are in possession of a  full knowledge of the necessities of the  case with regard to transportation   at  this point and are prepared to start to  work to overcome them.*    Taken   together with the wagon road above the  canyon  and��������� the' -' steamship  .promised by theprovincialgovenimentf  this proposed tramway means .that' a  second, steamer will  certainly    very  shortly be put, on the river to ply   between the head of the   Death" Rapids  and that nn  immense  territory  con;  taining the most valuable resources in  minerals, timber and land will at once  be placed in close and easy communication with Revelstoke.   To this town  the grants in this year's Dominion and  provincial estimates mean that the Hrst  strides have heen taken along the road,  which will  in a  few years*, leave   her  without a possible   the  com  mercial capital of Kootenay.  It has been some time arriving, but  it is beginning to come. The force of  geographical position may be slowly  exerted but it is always in the long run  irresistible. It is a power, which from  its very nature does not appeal except  to the most clearsighted. Half a dozen  mines on the side of a hill within easy  reach is a tangible piece of evidencefor  the future of a near by mining camp,  which is much more easily appreciated.  But it is position.which is the final and  supreme factor in the creation of great  distributing and -commercial .centres.i  A place which grows and grows!  steadily~*andT^almost--��������� i*uperceptibly,-  without any very 'assignable reason  for its progress is the place, which  eventually arrives at supremacy,  Revelstoke has hnd 'much to contend  with. Townsite complications of every  possible variety 'retarded its growth  for fifteen years. .Freight rate discrimination against it even, now has  cut it oft f wun the trade, which should  rightly belong to it in lhe districts  immediately to the south of the town.  Folly and mismanagement have practically wiped out mining camps, which  were and still are of infinite promise  and which today nhould be doing a  large trade with this plnce " ns supply  point. Inaccessibility has hindered  development in the vast district north  of the main line, which is the natural  commercial territory of the town. But  no circumstance or combination of  circumstances has availed to destroy  the faith of Revelstokers in fthe ultimate future of their city and it looks as  il|nt last their patient faith and  undaunted efforts were to begin to  receive a well deserved reward.

The  Coal eompanv has announced its  intention of immediately meeting at  Fernie 120 more ovens andSO additional  houses, at a cost of $117,500. At  Michel -100 ovens will be erected at a  cost of SSSOO.OOO; llXi houses at n. cost of  $55,000; on plant and mine improvement $00,000 will be expended nnd  $5,000 on offices and store houses;  making a total of $420,000, At Mor-  rissy creek the following amounts will  be the outlay : 200 coke' ovens at  $150,000 *, 150 houses at $82,500; mine  improvement and planls, $00,000 and  ollices and store $5,000, or a total of  $297,500. In all, the granting of the  charter will be the signal for the expenditme in these three" places of  $335,000. This will mean the employment of hundreds -of men and the  inauguration of a period of activity in  that district which will make itself felt  not in the province only, but also in  Eastern Canada.���������Rossland Miner.  Mine Managers' Announcement.  Rossland,' 1st April, 1001  To the Employees of the Undersigned  Mining Companies:  It being a matter of common report  that a certain element in the Rossland  Miners' union is insisting upon the  abrogation of the settlement that was  entered into a year ago at tbe instance  of Messrs. R. C. CluteandRnlph Smi__h,  we think it only'right to all concerned  that we should state atj,he earliest  opportunity offered, that if any action  is taken by the Miners' union looking  to a change in the existiug labor conditions in this camp," we, the undersigned, will have no alternative but to  close down pur mines and re-open only  under a reduced scale of wages."  .. The accumulating burden's.that have  bonus j-been imposed upon the ininirigiridustry  ' in'this province are "already 'lreavy~to  bear and if-those'.burdens are increased  it -will be" impossible to operate these  .mines on a business basis. ,. '��������� - , -  *"��������� We have been struggling.for- a long  time past to put these mines on a pay-  .ing basis, and*-;have been devising all  manner (of ways and means for the  accomplishment of this end without  resorting to the'reduction of wages.  Consequently, any further trouble  or expense to the companies at this  time will leaveno' alternative but to  abandon our effort to maintain- wages'  .at tlie oldstiindaid,. and we will be  compelled to adopt the long considered  plan of reducing miners' wages to $3.00  per day and muckers and unskilled,  surface libor to $2.00 per day.

This  may be a, sorrowful outlook for his  sentimental clerical friends in Eastern  Canada who want to deluge this country with these Oriental ragamulliiis,  for thu purpose of Christianizing them,  lint w,e fancy that their thin quavering  pipings will sound rather small in the  e.irs of t he federal legislators when  the report of the Chinese commission  has been submitted to the house.���������  Rossland Miner.  Legislature Adjourns for Two Weeks  "Victotia, April 4.���������The legislature  adjourned for two weeks fiom Wednesday. The object is to allow the  members to consult their constituents  on the railway question, the government having decided guided  entirely by their supporters on this  question. The budget speech will not  he delivered until after tlie recess and  it-1 is expected "that the'then finance  minister, .Turner, will announce his  retirement from public life to take the  position of agent general of this  province nt London, Eng. This office  will be opened in May and it, is  expected that^R. E. Gosnell, secretary  to the preniier,-will go over.  Terrenoir Donations.  The city'clerk is in'receipt of.the  very handsome sum of $02 collected by  Mrs. Martin and ' Mrs.' Edwards at  Nakusp.for the benefit, of the Terrenoir  family." A further amount; of $6 has  been forwarded by the Calvary Herald and Mr. Clancy, C.'P. R.'.watch-  man, has sent in a> personal "subscription of $5 for tbe same purpose. C. F.  Lindmark, who ,is- collecting in town,  reports.that he'expects to raise at least  $200 on his list before he 'completes it.  Conductor .Alf-Penzer, fwho , was  conductor on the train on 'which the  accident occurred, has collected < $80  and $00 for the benefit of the family.',  THE LARDEAU BRANCH  Will  be  Completed to  the Foot of the  Lake by May or June.  Questioned by the Nelson Tribune on  Tuesday as to thu Lardeau extension,  Mr. Whyte explained that work was  being pushed with all due haste. They  had a good deal of steel on hand, but  not sufficient to cover the distance.  On this branch.OO-poimd rails would be  used, 'which would be heavy enough  for till the trafiic expected. On the  main Hue, where heavv freight had to  be handled,* 80-pound steel is used.  Probably by May or June tliis branch  would be completed. There was some  heavy rock work lo be encountered,  but the grade generally was easy.  the  Blairmore Coalfields Will Supply  Canadian Pacific Railroad.  In discussing the prospects of his  company in their Alberta . coal  ventures, H. L. Frank, of Butte, is  quoted as follows in the Western  Mining World: "I am satisfied from  what I have been told by expert coal  men, and from what I myself have  seen, that the mines are the best in the  entire Northwest. At anyjrate they  are good enough lor me and I am  going right ahead with the putting in  of machinery and developing without  iinylimit, We will,-have the most  complete coal plant in that part of the  country when all our machinery is in  and our hoisting machinery will he as  complete as that of any of ��������� the great  copper mines of Butte. We will not  ship oiir coal to Montana, at least not  for the present, nor will we coke it for  shipment here as was intended, ' As  oiu arrangements now are'we will sell  the entire output of the mine to - the  Canadian Pacific Railroad, aud they  are very anxious that we should begin ' to supply them as quickly as  possible, which is one of the reasons  tor my trip al the piesent time."

The first of these provides  for government control of tbe company's freight and passenger rates, and  the second prohibits the railway company from moving ciial or coke fiom  the East Kootenay collieries-until thu  demands of the smelter in "Vale and  Kootenay have been met to the satisfaction ot the lienteuant-governor-in-  council. These amendment*-, will put  t he professed good faith of the Crow's  Nest Southern promoters to the test.  They have proclaimed all along that  they were anxious' to guarantee the  fuel supply of the Coltimbi.-t  smelters and that they onlv intended  to export their surplus. The amendment of the attorney-general simply  makes it obligatory upon the promoters to do what they profess', their  willingness to do.���������Nelson Tribune.  The New Mountain Playground.  There will be a larger influx of tour  ists to the'mnuntains of British Colum  bia during the coming summer than  ever before in the history of'the C. P.  R. You know, a new playground has  been discovered in the Canadian  Rockies, up the north fork of the  Wapta, directly north of Field station.  It is a wondpi'ful place, with high  peaks that are worth climbing, glaciers  that rival the Illecillewaet. of the  Selkirks, mngnificent waterfalls that  surpass in height and volume anything  of the kind in America, and deep' canyons that will .delight" the sightseer.

It was the old trouble about putting  the , choir into surplices���������the old  tronble with a variation. Generally it  is a section of the congregation that  kicks on these occasions. This time it  was the better half of the choir that  struck. It was a mixed choir and the  ladies had decided objections to wearing surplices. The choir master  insisted, the curate pleaded, but all in  vain���������'.When she won't, she won't and  there's an end on't." Finally the  rector was appealed to and the reverend gentleman made short work of  the revolt. "Ladies." said he. "Next  Sunday morning tt will be surplices or  nothing 1"  The tenors tittered, the sopranos  nnd contraltos blushed, bul on Sunday sure enough it was surplices.  How to Grow Pansies. ,  Pansy'plants are raised by getting  good seeds and sowing in shallow boxes  in the^house or Hofbeds^'utdpors.���������Iu  the house seedB may be started in  February, March or April. Fill the  box with fine prepared dirt, .bringing  it nearly to the top. This soil need not  be so very/rich^ good garden loam will  answer very well. Make the top level  nnd smooth and scatter the seeds as  evenly as possible. When this is done,  shift some soil over them until they  are covered about a quarter of an inch  in depth. Next give a light sprinkling,  and then wet a piece of spongy paper,  and put over the top of the box, set iu  a sunny window, free from drafts, and  in about eight days expect to see the  first tiny shoots appear. Do not pour  water over the soil, but let all moisture  be given through the paper, which  should be frequsntly moistened.  By May, plants ought to lie large  enought to set out of doors. Have the  ground where they are to be placet",  deep and mellow and plenty of well  decayed manure worked in. Select a  cloudy day for setting out the .plants,  and put them about eight inches apart  each way, ^firming - them down welL  By July they will begin to blossom  and will continue to, flower until late  in the fall. In the meantime work the  soil every week, give tlie plants all the  water they can drink. Keep the blossoms well picked off. so no seed pods���������  which take the strength from the  plants���������can form, and give fertilizer if  it should be needed, the best fertilizer  is liquid manure, is not too strong.  To my mind a situation which receives  the benefit of the sun till noon"5 and is  shaded for the remainder of the day is  an ideal place for apjuisy bed.

Mr. Adair's Report of Effective Work for  the Development of North Kootenay in  Eastern Canada.  Mr. Ed. Adair returned Irom his  trip to the east on Wednesday. He  reports a very successful result of the  journey. He has set on foot business  arrangements which will result in a  considerable access of capital into the  Big Bend district. A second company  has been started to take over part of  the property on Lnforme creek, owned '  aud operated by the Adair Mining  Co. at present and there is every  chance that active and extensive  operations will be shot tiy instituted  by both companies on theAdair group."  Mr. Adair found that the reputation  of the Big Bend district as a mining  camp was well established among  people in Eastern Canada interested in  mining and that they were quite well  posted on the -whole situation a'nd the  conditions, which have hitherto  retarded the progress of the district.  Further than this Mr. Adair utilized  his experience   as _ an old lumberman  and his   knowledge of the   timber  resources of North Kootenay to interest  lumbermen   down  east  in the great  inducements which nature offers to the  establishment of the pulpwood indns-  try  at  Revelstoke.   He  pointed" out  that the valley of the Columia is full  of spruce'and that spruce also grows  in large quantities~on the slopes of the-  mountains  on  each side of the river  above   the  cedar  line,   from   which  elevation the logs can easily be brought  down by means of slides.   As a matter  of fact we possess in the valley of the -  Columbia from Beavermouth to Rev- -  elstoke   ft ��������� timber district,   which  is  -  only excelled in British Columbia by    *  the timber  limits on-.the "coast  and,  Revelstoke is the point marked cut by  the  geography   of the'district for'the  handling  of  this timber  whether by  sawmills or pulp factories.   Mr. Adair  feels confident that he has succeeded in  intei esting   eastern" capital   to   the  investing point  in the_ great capabili- , "  ties presented byjtheJBig Bend district'' '���������.  for the'succe'ssful- carrying \on of-these ,i"  industries  and the results of his  mis- **  sionary work are likely very shortly to  materialize.* .-��������� --*-'      : -"   ,.

Mr. Joseph Martin is repoma as  introducing into the British Coumbia  legislature a bill to permit champerty, or the taking of lawsuits on  the chance of getting something out  of the results of the judgment. There  has always been champerty, and there  have always been laws against it It  has been rghtly regarded as a practice at once mischievous and degrading to the professional man who permitted himself to descend to it. It  is a matter of surprise that a lawyer  should take Mr. Martin's position.  The bar in the Pacific province must  be short of business indeed.���������Montreal Gazette.  A KIDNAPPING CASE  ROAD TO HUDSON'S BAY  The Northern Pacific railway Is reported to have notified the Manitoba  government that unless the lines covered by the Roblin contract are taken  over on April 1, the company will refuse to stick to Its bargain, says the  Monrteal Gazette. It is a little  doubtful if the Northern Pacific  would refuse to sell a non-payins  property at a huge price, because of  the delay ot a day In the purchaser  coming to time. Still its earnestness  might be worth testing. If it should  live up to its threat the only apparent  door for the province to escapo from  a mad bargain would be unexpectedly  opened.  General Botha has declined the  term6 of peace offered by Lord Kitchener. There aro many things that  make it appear the negotiations were  not, on the Boers' side, intended to  reach any other end. Tho partial  cessation of hostilities has enabled  the various commanders to confer  with each other, an tho result may  be looked for In some new development of hostility as useless as affecting the end ' of tho campaign as it  will bo annoying to the ultimate victors. But the end is coming. Every  month sees the hostile forces weakened with no opportunity of regaining lost strength.  WIPE OUT THE BLOT.  The Liberal papers are speaking of  the "empty nature" of the Cook  Charges, while the Conservative papers  state that they have been amply substantiated. Divested, however, of  all party coloring the recent investigation proves undoubtedly that Mr.  tj-ook was not talking altogether  through his hat last fall whon he  asserted - that he was offered the' recusal of a seat in the senate for thc  sum of  $10,000.  It is true that the baldness of thc  proposition was' covered by the sug-  ���������geetion that it was only a subscription towards the party funds that  was required, but as. the amount of  tJhe subscription was fixed at $10,000  and . a seat in ' the senate was made  contingent upon its payment, it can  ���������only be regarded as a quid pro quo.  The above facts are borne out by  Sir. Cook's evidence before the senate emmttee and can hardly be gain-  sayed. Mr. Cook is a gentleman of  wealth and position and a life long  liberal and is hardly ths man who  ���������would violate his political predelic-  jions or his personal honor by swearing to a false,statement without'obvious reasons.  Tho investigation leaves an ugly  emirch upon the mantle of leaders  of the Liberal party that will not  he effaced for many a day to come.  Any politial party that uses their  Bower as representatives of the peoplo  to traffic in the offices of the crown  rightly merit the condemnation of tho  people.  There were scandals in the times  of the Conservatives but it is doubtful if "ever there was anything equal  to this.  In the reign of James I. baronetcies  were sold for large sums to replenish the privy purse and historians refer to .it with contumely as a disgrace upon England even in those  aafidaeval times. What must be  thought of Canada when such a scandal occurs nearly four hundred years  later.  If the charges are not true.., it is  earnestly hoped tbat the government  will not sit in silence but will  take vigorous means to rebut tbem  so that Canadians will not need to  Slide their dimiiushed heads in shame  and bear in silence the reproach of  other nations.  It    is estimated      that thero     aro  about 400,000 Angora    goats    in' the  United   States,   and   that our  ann.-.l  production of mohair is about 1,000,-  000 pounds.     Although very little has  been  said   or   written   about  Angora  goats  during tho last 40 years, they  have been    extensively bred    in the  "Western States   and   Territories, especially  in Texas.  New Mexico,  Nevada, Florida. California and Oregon.  Investigations prove that they are not  only classed amonK the most useful  or   the   domestic   animals,   but   their  usefulness  is  manifested   in    various  ways.      The fleece,    called "mohair."  furnishes   some  of  the  finest fabrics  among ladies'  goods,  and. is used  in  various   other   manufactures.     Their  habit  of  browsing  enables  a  farmer  in a wooded locality to use them to  help in subjuagtlng the forest. Their  flesh is exceedingly delicate and  nutritious: the milk, though not so abundant   as   with  the  milch  breed   of  goats, is richer than cow's milk: their,  tanned skins, though inferior in,quality to the skins of the common goat,  are used for leather: their pelts make  the  neatest .of  robes  and* rugs.      A  few of them ln a flock of sheep are a  protection "from wolves and dogs:  and  their manure is noticeably helpful to  the  grass  which  follows   them   after  they  have  cleaned  away the undcr-  brusti.      1'nere  is   much  interest  in  the  goat question,  and    the    United  States department   of agriculture has  received   numerous   letters of inquiry  concerning  Angora   goats. '   For  the  purpose of  answering the  many  letters containing   questions, the bureau  of animal    industry of   that department has just issued Bulletin No. 27.  Bureau   of Animal   Industry,  cutiteld  ''Information    Concerning     the . Angora Goat.'"���������Bradstreet's.  _A  TU8H-IN THE TIDE...  The other day the prisident of  ehe Glasgow chamber of commerce in  the course of his annual address came  but' strongly as a protectionist. lie  stated in inaugurating free trade in  Croat Britain the principle of self-  interest had been eliminated and  without that .principle no nation  could hope to keep up its own industries. Great nations had been built  ci) by the practice of protection until  they were serious rivals of Great  Britain anil the day was coming when  Britain would have to adopt llie  principle of protection.  Wo woufil commend thwe utterances to the attention of tbe leaders  of tho Liberal party, who declare that  tbe old country will never give Canada  preference   In  her  marUeiK.  The president of the Glasgow  chamber of commerce, by virtue  of his position must be* representative  of lhe views of out* of the strongest  bodies representing Industrial interests in the world. He may be expected to know what he is speaking  about and hi3 utterances should be  well  weighed.  As a matter of fact the principle  retarding factor which exists In Canada against the government entering  into negotiations for reciprocal [/referential trade, is tlie absurd personal predelictions of the premier  hlmEelf.   .  It will be remembered that during  the election campaign of 1S96 he  -posed as an apostle of free fr."<!e  jzospc! and as such was petted, feted  aad presented with a free trade medal  by thc Cobden .club in England. He  accepted the medal and made spaelics  of a committal nature. "When he returned to Canada antl discovered that  the national policy of the Conservatives would have to be maintained,  he endeavored to maintain his title  to the Qobden medal by tinkering  with the 'tariff and making a fr*-v  paltry  reductions*.  He is' afraid, however, tbat . wero  he to countenance anything in the  shape of a reciprocal preferential tariff, he would be accused by liis one  tirae friends ofthe Cobden eluli with  having deserted   bis  colors.  Thus do the personal foibles of one  stand In the way of progress and reform.  A Strange Affair ��������� Shrouded in  Mystery  Rochester, N.Y., March 30.���������A war  rant has been placed ln thc hands of  Director ot Detectives Hayden today  for the arrest of one Edwin Puller,  charging the latter with kidnapping  the 14 year old son ot Thomas D,  Wild, a prominent tailor of this city,  on March 15 last.  Two weeks previous to March 15,  Fuller arrived in the city and leased  an office in the Granite building. He  announced himself as a promoter of  the great Merchants Exposition and  Midway fair, which he proposed to  hold at Fltzhugh's hall the week of  March 9-16. A vaudeville show was  to bo one of the features of the fair.  Fuller, the night before the close of  tho show, suddenly disappeared. On  that night Wild was seen with Fuller  at the Erio station.  Young Wild had not been seen since  he disappeared until this morning,  when, after having been -kept a prisoner in Canada for 10 days, ho returned home and told a story of  adventures such as seldom fall to the  lot of boys of his age.  To Director Hayden at police headquarters "this morning, Thomas Wild  said Fuller first noticed him one day  when he was playing a piano at an  auction store. Later he met the boy  near the corner of Main and St. Paul  streets, and asked him to take a  walk with him to see a man who had  a lot of dogs and horses. Fuller  promised to buy somo soda water.  The boy consented, and after stopping  at different drug stores where soda  water was indulged in, tho pair reached Union street, whero a freight train  on ��������� the Niagara Falls branch had  been stopping for orders. The boy  said that after taking the last glass  of soda water he felt very sleepy and  believes It' was drugged.  Fuller' carried the lad into the  caboose of the freight train and laid  him in a bunk. This is the last the  boy can remember till they reached  Niagara Falls. From there Fuller  kept the boy so closely guarded that  he could not escape. They walked  across* tho suspension .bridge to Clifton, and from there froceeded on foot  to St. Catherines, where Fuller took  rooms for the night. He kept telling  the boy to call him "Papa" but this  young Wild refused to do.  After leaving St. Catherines Fuller  gavo entertainments in music halls, he  playing the violin while Wild accompanied him on the piano. At Hamilton Fuller shaved off his moustache,  cut his hair and" otherwise altered  his .appearance.  ,, Wild says he was continually  trying to get away; and when they  reached Toronto yesterday he had  managed to save 'out of. the little  money Fuller had given him 92.10.  When in the afternoon they put up  at' 248 Richmond street, Fuller went  out "a few minutes, and Wild started  for' home. In Toronto, Fuller went  bv the name of Edward Ferguson. He  also called himself Thomas Scott,  Fulton, and several other ��������� aliases at  different towns they were in.

"I can give you no definite announcement," said Mr. Mackenzie.  "The matter is entirely out of our  hands."  "Do you anticipate any hitch in the  arrangements from action at Ottawa?"  asked the reporter.  "No," said- Mr. Mackenzie. "I  don't think there is any reason to  helieve that there will be."  "Then'you think tho contracts will  be ratified by parliament?"  Mr. Mackenzie was of the opinion  that they-would.

He came  out over the ice, or what is left ofi  it, arriving in Seattle on the Victorian yesterday. Mr. Robinson spent  a full month in Dawson and along the  creeks, and being an observing man,  has a good idea of the conditions in  that country.

Found travelling  vc-rv difficult during tho last two  weeks, as the country- was more or  less a desert after the ravages of tho  famine. The roads were bad. being  covered with loose sand, and often  led alongside tho deep jungle, inhabited by snakes, tigers, panthers,. etc.  in those dtstricts. the roar of tigers  wns heard nightly,' and it was utterly  unsafe to go outside a village after  darkness had fallen. On one occasion  I was pedalling along, the junge  growing close to the road, at dusk in  a part of the country, whore several  "man eatera" were supposed to be  prowling about. When all of a sudden, I heard a loud crashing and a low  growl in the jungle close at- hand. It  may have been a tiger, or it may  have only been a water buffalo.

I was, compelled to carry 'food and water, and  sometimes to camp out by myself In  some small village.

Some Exciting Incidents of Chinese Warfare Forty-One  Years Ago.  During the past week, Calgary had  an interesting visitor in the person  of Major Butler, who, ln his day, has  seen as much active service under the,  British Hag, as almost any man now  living. The Major has been enjoying  a  quiet  and  secluded  liie    on    nis  ranche near Cochrane since the country was first settled, and his recent  visit to the city'Is the first he has  made since IS years ago.  Major Butler was ln the exciting  Chinese troubles of 1860 to 1863, the  first Khartoum campaign, the Indian  Mutiny, the earlier South African  troubles, and many others. His intimate friends say that he can give  many an Interesting personal reminiscence'of Gordon, Roberts,- Buller  and other well known figures whose  names aro firmly bound up with  Britain's military history.  Like a true British soldier, the  Major has a strong dislike to talking  for publication. In the past he has  resisted Tho Herald's persuasions to  let the public share some of the delightful conversations his more intimate associates have so often enjoyed.      ' ,  In 1860 Major Butler was an ensign  in the Thirty-First Regiment, which  took part in the "storming of' the  Taku forts. TEe British forces were  under the command of Sir Hope  .Grant, with Napier, (afterwards Lord  Magda'la) as bis chief of staff and  chief engineer. Five thousand British and 5,000 French landed 14 miles  east of the forts. They, took Uie  Chinese army on the le������t flank, completely routing them. , The Chinese,  who, consisted mostly ot cavalry, retreated towards the forts. The invaders after the first day's fighting,  encamped on the banks of the Pei Ho.  They stayed there for two weeks,  throwing a bridge across the river,  meanwhile throwing out scouts and  patrolling parties. A dispute arose  between-Napier and the French commander, afterwards the Duke of Pali-  chow, as to which" fort should be  tackled first; the^Frenchman claiming  that the south fort was the key to the'  situation, - and > Napier contending  that the north -fort -was the bey. Finally Napler.and. Grant determined' to  attack the north "fortT and in consequence-the French general refused to  tq-operate.��������� The.British -then stormed  tlienorth'forts and took them. Three  hours   afterw^rijs,. .Mandarins   came  that time the British minister plenipotentiary. One of Lord Bruce's assistants was Sir Harry Perks, the  well,known Australian statesman.  A halt was called and terms of  peace arrived at. Sir Harry Parks  and' Beveral others of the British  went with the Chinese Into Pallchow.  Then came the dreadful part. They  had no sooner got inside Pallchow  than they saw a large Chinese army  surrounding them. The Chinese had  been guilty of a great piece of  treachery. Parks and several others  were taken prisoner, and were afterwards brutally treated and tortured  at Pekln.  As soon a3 the British discovered  the treachery, they started on and  captured Pallchow, killing thousands  of Chinamen. The Chinese were  camped along a canal, and the  officer who relates this says it was  mpoesible to find a aquaro yard without a dead body. Those who were  not killed were drowned.  The British then started on their  five days' march to Pekin, a distance  of 40 miles.- It had been arranged  with the French that "when Pekin was  reached the army should march along  .within a mile or two ot the walls  until the Summer palace,was reached, ' flve miles beyond Pekin.  The palace, known as "Yuen  Min Yuen" or "Heavenly Paradise,"  was a magnificent place, filled, with  treasures of untold value.  "When the British arrived opposite the Antln gate, they saw 20,000  Tartars coming out. Sir Hope Grant  ordered a halt This was 3 o'clock  in the afternoon, and by the time  he found out what they were aiming  at, it was too late to proceed ���������' the  other five miles to the palace.  In the meantime the French went  ahead and got to the palace, the  first intimation of their arrival being  bonfires, which were visible to ��������� the  British. They captured the palace  that night, and did as much looting  as they could. Grant made Inquiries  as to where he could get transports  so that he could go and get the  British share of the loot. One officer  had 50 mules that he had looted on  the road.   - ,  Young ' Butler" was sent for and  Grant said to him: "Paddy, I hear  you are the .greateBt looter ln the  British army, take these, mules, and  bring down as much loot from the  palace as you can carry."     i  -This officer took down GO'Chinese  carts hauled by. mules tandem fashion, with an escort, ot .Fane's Horse.  The next two days' he������.brought back  a- hundred loads of loot, among  which was Lord McCartney's carriage,  that he had taken out two years  before as a present    to the Chinese'  across from the.south'fort with offers'  of surrender. thus^hWlhg that #yiBC>verni_ient trom ������re*i ?nt^ln-JTh*  British" were right^saylnl that'lhej J** *������ecored was J.0Tt* hundreds of  -     '��������� ,        *     V-    '    "..      ,  ,. }thpusands of pounds.

If Count Bonl and the other French  gentleman of his class thirsting for  each other's gore really wished to  know how to fight for honor's sake  let them visit Medicine Hat and hear  the story of how "Bulldog" Kelly and  Mahone, the stockman, fought theirs.  It is only necesasry to say of Kelly  that once in his life he figured in a  celebrated international law controversy which the then secretary of  state, Thomas F. Bayard, ended. His  mother was a friend of John A.  Logan, ana one ot nis sisters was  recently, if not now, a school teacher  in this state. Mahone was nothing  more nor less than a frontier cattle  man. He met Kelly flrst at Calgary, where, in a dispute over cards,  an enmity arose between them. Sub-  seuqently they clashed ln the Medicine Hat country, and Mahone wronj^  fully accused Kelly of stealing stock.  Kelly would havo killed him then and  there but for the Interference of the  Canadian Mounted police. Subsequently one of these policemen suggested to. him that he challenge Mahone to a duel, and that they have It  out alone. Kelly evidently thought  well of the suggestion, for a day or  two later, meeting 'him In that isolated and abused town, Medicine Hat,  he quietly told him that he would fight  him the next morning as the_sun rose  on the Tortured trail, and prove to  him with a gun that he was not q  thief. Mahone nodded his head in  acceptance of the defiance, and that  was all there was to the.challenge.  , Kelly slept in a ranche house that  night, but was up before dawn, saddling his horse. He carried for arms,  two sis shooters and a short hllted  bear knife. * He rode away from the  ranche ln tho heavy darkness before  daybreak, headed for the Tortured  trail. He was a six footer! sandy  haired, heavy, jawed and called "Bulldog" because he'had once pitted himself against an animal of that title  and whipped him in a free fight. His  courage was extreme from the brute  point of view. To illustrate this,  years after this event, when he wa3  on trial tor his life In a murder case!  he was Instructed by his attorney to  kill one,of the, witnesses'against him  it he attempted to give certain testimony.  "You listen' to-him," said the attorney, "and if he testify as  to 'certain.1 things let him have it."  Cowed by Kelly's Gaze.  Kelly, as a prisoner, entered the  court room with a knife up'his sleeve,  and.sat through all the- proceedings,  with his. eyes "on the man he was to  wafch. . The. latter grew restless,  and when he took the stand broke  down completely and did not aid the  prosecution at" all. He divined without1 knowing It, that;if he* testified  as'fthe prosecution believed he would,  Kelly woud then and there end him.  And all this took place not In a frontier town, but ln a court of the  United States government.  Well, Kelly rode down the trail as  well in spirit as a man of his nature  could be. He did not .whistle, for  whistling men are. rarely brutal. But  he 'abused his, horse, and that was  the best of evidence that he felt well.  He watched the dark hang closer and  closer to the plain grasses, the stars  grow less brilliant until suddenly in  the east it' was as if a curtain ��������� was  drawn up and the-day came with the  call of the wild birds and a wind that  came from the west to meet the,sun.  He glanced towards Medicine Hat,  and from that point, out of the  black__and grey of the hour, ^rode  Mahone, armed as his'opponent-was.  They  were a mile  apart when ".they  his ballet wounds had 14 knife cuts,  and Mahone had 15.- They were put  to bed in the same roo'm .and the  same doctor attended both. For days  they lay almost touching each other,  and neither spoke. Medicine Hat had  been unable to decide which had the  better of the fight, and it seemed*-as  if it would be resumed if both lived  to recover. But one morning Mahone raised himself painfully from  Bis mattress, and he put out his hand  to Kelly and said:  "You ain't no thief;  you're game."  And Kelly covered the hand with  his own, and they shook. That settled their feud. They were under  the doctor's care for three months,  but when able to go out rode away  from Medicine Hat together, the best  of friends.  That was a real fight, the onl?  kind of a fight that a real man goes  into if he is going to fight at all. It  was a pity that Kelly did not hold his  courage afterward for better uses. He  became involved in one of the most  brutal murders known to the Calgary  region, escaped the hangman's noose  By technicalities, and finally in Nebraska or Wyoming fell ofE a box "car  one night and was ground to pieces  by the wheels of a transcontinental  freight.  Mahone never fought again.   o   THE DARK BLUES.  OXFORD WINS THE BOAT RACE.  A Grand Contest   Neck and Neck.

It was recently'announced that he  would remain in this country until  thc middle of April, by which time  It was 'thought the huge company  would become operative. .  At Morgan's offlco a statement was  made apparently Indicating that Morgan -has for some time known full  woll of the dangers attendant on a  European trip at this Juncture.  Privato Detective Smith, whose sole  duty it is to scrutinize every caller  nt tho Morgan office, said: "Morgnn  has his ' agents abroad to transmit  news to him."  That tho matter had become public was apparently the causo ot great  discomfiture at tho banker's offices.  At his residence last night Morgan  refused  to  see  anyone.       ���������<  recognized each other." Kelly' reigned  in  his "horse' and  waited.-      Mahone  came on.     No surgeons    or 'seconds  were  in  attendance.     ..Medicine Hat  .was'asleep.      Mahone    drew nearer,  moving a.'little, to the-left as if to  circle Kelly.     The    latter - suddenly,  dropped under  his horse's neck, and  fired. His bullet clipped the mane of  Mahone's horse. Mahone gave a,wild  whoop and flred back, riding as Kelly  was? Indian fashion,-and looking for  an opening.     Both horses were,now  in 'motion and the shots came thick  and , fast.     Kelly's horse went down  first, screaming from a bullet through  his iuiigs.     His rider entrenched behind him.     Mahone    made a charge  and lost his own horse, besides getting a bullet through his   left arm.  He too, entrenched.-     In a few moments one of . his shots     cut a red  crease i across  the forehead  of  Kelly  and  filled his eyes with1 blood.     He  wiped - himself off, and , tied  a handkerchief over the mark.  ' With Knives and Pistols.

"In connection with this application  I had interviews with members of tho  cabinet and others, and wrote or re-  received letters from them, the originals or copies of which I have  "kept.  "After -these negotiations had proceeded for a considerable length of  time, I received a telegram from Ottawa from one of the leading'Reform  members, known to possess tho confidence of the Laurier government, requesting me to meet htm at' the  Union station, in Toronto. I did  meet him as requested, and he then  showed me a letter which had been  written to him by one of the member, of the cabinet (for the purpose,  as he said, of being shown to me), in  which he was authorized to inform  me that I could have the position I  had applied for,, providing I would  'do' something.'  '"I thereupin asKed , hini what this  expiesslon was intended to mean,  and what was the 'something' I was  asked or expected to. 'do.! He then  informed mn that I would be required  or expected to pay a sum of ten  thousand dollars. I told him very  emphatically that I would not pay  tbat or any other sum. He thereupon said that he would not accept  my answer-as final, but would see me  again after I should have had timp to  give the matter further consideration.  "Later, I again met him in Toronto,  when he again told me he was authorized to say positively that if I  would pay the sum he had formerly  named, that is, $10,000. I would be appointed a senator. I again refused  to pay any sum of money.  "I further say that I .have" in mjf  possession a large number of letters  written by members of the govern-  mens and persons acting on behalf of  one -or. more of such, members, ,and  copies of some letters the originals of  which I was requested to return after  perusal,- and did return; also copies  of letters written by me in'reply to  letters so received, and that these  letters and copies of letters bear corroborative* evidence in support of -the  statement above, made by me.  "And I, further * say,..and promise  that should an investigation be' made  by a competent and, impartial nonpartisan commission into the whole  matter of tor. attempted sale  of senatorshlps. as . it has recently  been intimated by the Honorable  Sir' Mackenzie Bowell, may be mode,  I will'appear before such commission  and give evidence and produce the  correspondence and copies of correspondence which I have' in ray possession, and will also furnish the  names of witnesses who can cprrob-  orate nr statements.       - '  : "H.

With  this he set upon him with a ��������� cluhbPd  revolver and beat Christiansen on the  head until he fell to the-floor, bleeding and half unconscious.

In  -the centre of the pit wns set a solid  lron_nost, attached to which was/ji  heavy iron chain andean old-fashioned pair of handcuffs. Nearby, was a  heap of human bones.' ' '       - .  Enquiry has disclosed thc fact that  In 1831 Perry Borden, a young  Frenchman,* brought his young wife  to. Poultney to live in the house  which the workmen are tearing down.  She was ��������� witty and . vivacious, and  attracted * considerable attention. In  a short timo Borden became jealous  of her and forbade her visiting a  tavern that was kept close by. Thc  young and high' tempered wife would  not submit to be dlctnted to by her  husband. ��������� One night in November,  1831, sho was at tho place, and about  10 o'clock ������ Borden called tor her. She  left tho- plac'o with him and was  never seen by her friends after that.  Borden said his wife had dosertGd  liim'and fled to Canada.  After n year Borden wont away,  and was not heard of again until 1882,  when he suddenly reappeared tn town  Ho said ho had been at sea for 50  years. His mind seemed shattered. He  went to the little house and remained  two years, neighbors supplying him  with provisions. He finally took sick  and the town took cliarRO of him. He  died In 1887. and wns burled'in the  pttcr's field.  The discoveries mado by the work-  mon have led every one in H1I3  vicinity to believe that Borden  chained His wifo in the underground  cellar and left her to die a horrible  death.
