ACQUIESCENCE  The American..Review of Reviews  for April notes the rise of a demand  for government railways in Canada in  a Very sympathetic spirit. Jt remarks :  "'How suddenly* new conditions may  advance a question like government  ownership of railways from the stage  uf academic .iliscussion to that of a  blazing',*practical- issue, lias just no\v  heen illustrated.'in the neighhoiing  country of ,, Canada. The whole  Dominion- has been thrown into a  great discussion hy the recent railway  consolidations' in the United Stales."  The Keview of Reviews depiecnles the  AiiH-Aiuericinism with which the  discussion -hat) been tinged .hat finds  nhtrnng elseln it to he criticised,' hut  incidentally almost it places its finger  on what seems to the IlKHAI.b to he  the chief danger looming ahead in the  changed conditions, which the recent  unification of railway interests in the  United States has brought about. It  save: "Meanwhile it is a curious as  well as a significant 'fact that the  changed conditions of private ownership have to the minds of some people,  made it a matter of less importance,  either way, whether in the future, the  government' should or should., not  intrease its industrial fmietioas. It is  conceivable that a unified -railway  system under, private management  might be carried on' with such regard  for the reasonable intei est s of all  passengers and shippers that there  would seem little if anything to gain  from the point. of ^view oftheepm-  luuiiity'at lurge by 'the 'transfer .to  government control." It is certainly  tromely probable that with the consolidation of the transportation system of  the continent under one control the  old competitive system wilh all its  evils and with its evils a number of the  most ' forcible argnmeuts - against  private ownership will vanish. The  men who have engineered this unification are distinctly great men.. They  are men of the stuff of which in'foi mer  times great Empire-makers have been  built. Their rule is likely at all events  to be a just and wise, perlrips even a  beneficent one.- The competitive  system, whicli is passing was a very  wasteful one. The .mere elimination  of this feature from the transportation  problem will enable'"the men- at the  head of the new consolidation to  collect a much "greater, reven.ne from  'the'''-unified railway system"of the  continent than was before possible,  while at the same time dealing far  more moderately and equably ^vilh  the public than theii predecessors  were able under a condition of industrial warfaie to do. But acquiscence  means neither more nor less than an  ultimate condition of social serfdom.  FREE TRADE IN MEDICINE  There has been for some time past  and there still, exists considerable  friction between the medical profession  in Victoria and the fiuternities. The  'medical council in pursuance of a strict  code of professional etiquette have laid  down a rule that no member of the  medical association wliich includes  every qualiflc-d practitioner in the province, can accept "the - position of  physician to a society.' The result of  this action on their part lias been a  petition from a federation of the  orders, which'has been formed on tlie  coast, praying the legislature to amend  the present-Medical Act so as to admit  to practise in Brilish Columbia, any  medical mar. holding ni diploma from  any' recognized University or College  of Medicine in.Great.Britiun or any. of  its dependencies or who is qualified to  practise in any province of the Dominion, and can produce credentials of  character.and good standing in the  profession, and that the examination'  of their credentials shall be conducted  by examiner*, appointed by the government; '   .- *  The present system is of course on  the faco of it iin absurdity. The  treatment, of typhoid fever or the  amputation of a leg do not differ in any  particulars in Nova Scotia or British  Columbia. The examination of candi"  ditesfor registration as qualified piac-  titioners in tliis province keeps out lo  the very great benefit of the community, the holders of worthless degrees  gained after a few months' course in  some twenty fifth rate university in  the western states and that is about all  that can be said in its favor.(/ To the  possessors of Ciinadiad or old country  medical dehi'ees it is simply an annoyance as it is not stiff enough to" cause  them any trouble to pass it. ' The  Herald agrees with the principle of  the proposed amendment, which is  that these iuterprov.incial barriers to  medical practise throughout, the Dominion are to our own Canadian and  old country practitioners simply a  useless vexation arid inpertinence and  should be abolished.  At the same time the wisdom of the  proposed amendment at' this present  juncture is open to exception. There  has been on foot for some time past  throughout the profession in Canada a  movement, which aims at abolishing  these hindrances to freedom of practise within lhe various provinces and  at "the time is designed to - still  further elevate the already,.very high  standing of Canadian medical men. - It  is proposed that at.the medical conven  tion. embracing the whole profession  in the Dominion, which .is "to he  held in Winnipeg next August,  proposals will he made by which  ono universal qualification for  practice will be. established from  one end of Canada to the other.  The degiee so conferred will be given  on passing, a board of exainineis  appointed by lhe Dominion government, making a much more rigid and  impartial test lliaii that in vogue at  present, when each university gives its  own degree and qualifies its own  students to practice. In view therefore of the fact that such a movement  is on foot among the niemhers ofthe  profession the'insulves, a movement  which is in entiie accoi dance with the  principle of the proposed amendment  and ' which will further tend  so greatly to elevate the already high  character and standing of our Canti-  dian doctors in the eyes of their  colleagues and the public of Great  Britain and the United States, the  Herald is of the opinion that any  proposal to alter our provincial medical act at the piesent is ill timed and  unwise.  NOW OR NEVER.  St seems to the Hkrald -that as the  the amendments to the school act  have already become law it is getting  about time for the "ratepayers of Revelstoke to be up and doing. Wh have'in  the town at piesent a school building  which is admittedly, inadequate in  accomodation and faulty in construction. Certain make shift, additions are  it is true'proposed for this year, hut  even with these it would only,be'a  magnified country school house, without proper sanitary conveniences and  utterly behind the times. Iu two or  three years at the outside it would  have to be demolished to make room  for a worthier structui e. Tbe point  for the ratepayers of Revelstoke to  take into serious consideration is this.  Do they or do they not intend to allow  the provincial government to slide out  of further responsibility in the matter,  leaving ns to face the certainty of  having to put our hands in our pockets  for fifteen or twenty' thousand dollars  for a new school building in the almost  immediate future, Our sister cities of  Nelson and Rossland start under - the  new conditions each equipped with a  modern and substantial school build-  "riig, which,.'will -serve _theii*-.-requirements for 'some I time "to comb," Revelstoke on the, contrary appears to be  content to be left by the government  to furnish one for herself. If the old  condition of affairs was destined to  continue one can understand this town  putting up with the .tinkering additions, which it is proposed to make to  the present building. , We could do  with them forawhili*,.-knowing, very  well that eventually the government'  would have to erect ns an " np-to-date  building. But uow the case is entirely  altered. After this year there will be  no more going to Victoria for school  'buildings. If we want them we shall  have to furnish them ourselves. We  .ought to demand that we shall be  given a fair start. The Herald is  credibly informed that the strength  and justice of onr case is recognized by  the department,and it is confident that  a petition for a brick school building  to be erected here this year, to cost  not less at all events than' $10,000,  would meet with favorable attention  Down Pretty Fine.  ��������� Our Revelstoke watchmaker," J.*  Guy Barber and his ettlcient assistant  R. N. Doyle, received quite a compliment from the chief watch inspector, R. J. E. Scott of Montreal. He  has notified them that tue" accuracy of  the watches, belonging to C. P. R.  employes, under their care, shews the  .second hest average for ��������� the last two  months of any point on the company's  system, There are 125 watches under"  their care and every month reports on  the result of the fortnightly examination made of these* timepieces have to  be sent in so that Mr. Scott privtically  makesa second inspection of every  watch used on the line himself. Thirty  seconds is the maximum deviation  allowed lo pass without censure, so  that the position of inspector requires  bobh extreme carefulness and thorough knowledge of the watchmakeis  art, It will he seen that the standard  attained by Messts. Barber and Doyle  is a very high one.  L. O. L.  --A regular meeting of the Royal  Scarlet Chaptet will be held at the  Oddfellows Hall on Sunday April Hth.

FAVORS STATE OWIlERSHiP.  District Association Believes the Domin  ion   Should Ov/n  aiid   Operate  Refinery.  At a meeting of the District Association No. Col'the Western Federation  of Miners held iu Nelson on Wednesday  the mallei ot a government bonus to  the lead refining industay was among  the questions discussed during the day,  in connection with which the following  resolution was parsed:  Whereas, the silver-lead mining industry of Urili-.li Columbia has been  seriously hampered by the actions ol  the American smelting trust in increasing their charges of treatment, of otn  ores iin-1 increasing their commission  for l.hu deposition of'our bullion; and.  whereas, this convention is of the opinion that the establishment of a refinery  in Canada would greatly stimulate the  production of silver-lead ore, and materially contribute to the promotion ol  tbe general interests of the country',  and. whereas this convention i.s of the  opinion thatitisabsolutclyessenti.il to  the proper protection of .all interests  involved that, the proposed reflneiy  should be established under such conditions as would preclude.the possibility of its absorption by\ the smelter  trust nt any futuie'dale; therefore, be  it, resolved; that this District Association, No. 0, Western* Federation of  Miners, in convention assembled,  declare that in the judgment of this  organization the true solution of lhe  lefinery p-oblem is the.'iconscruction  and operation of a refinery by the Dominion government of sufficient capacity for the 'treatment of our silver-  lead ores, -and that s\uh "a refinerv  should be situated at '^ome central  point in-the mining district of this  province.     *   . *    ,  Revelstoke Gun Club.

Theie is scarcely anything of a romantic nature left in "lhe life of the  locomotive engineer. Business has  crowded it out, and the driver is as  much n machine now as the engine he  controls. 1 noticed several old engineer.-, whom 1 knew '.o he mostreliable,  walking around town, out of work,  tlii*. winlur, and the other day I asked  an up-to date railwav man the cans-;  of this.  ������������������They are too carefull." was his  reply. Strange answer ! Of all men in  the woi Id'now co.ild a driver be too  caret ul! 1 had always though thaL  caiefuilni*.*.s and caution wa.s the first  requisite for a man in such a position,  and T tried to discover lhe meaning of  llieauswcr given me by the ottici il.  Time was when the engineer legard-  ed hK engine as his personal property.  Ik'inhviiys called it ".������������������he" and often  limes spoke of it as "my old girl" I  have even known of instances where  -uch teiuisas "Big Kate." "Peach.'  and "Sally Slick" were used. If a  driver was laid oil" on account of illness,  he often worried less about his own  trouble.- than aliout the fact that some  new man Mime heartle.-s stranger, was  handling bi- darling. If he pulled into  a station and found orders .there to lift  a couple of car*, he would'argue with  tlie agent and even with the despntch-  er rather than ovei load "my  engine."  On a stiff grade I have listened lo an  old driver talkto'his engine as if it were .  a human being.  "Now, take   hold,   old   girl.     Does  ���������Peach' want a little more sand?   And,'  as the wheels would slip,   "She always  on board."  1 well remember ono experience I  had, when a small boy, I was liding iu"  an engine up the grade near Acton,  when, after considerable sputtering- ���������  and slipping and a good deal of coaxing  and -swearing alternately, the locomotive came to a dead stop.  "It's no use. son." said tbe man at  the throttle to me.' "She won't do  anything when theie is a stranger  watching her. You"get off and "catch  the caboose. Then you will see hei*  walkaway with this"train." As 1 live,  that i- exactly what happened, and. to-  this day, [ have never been able to ���������  explain the matter, for the stop was  not sufficiently long to allow of any  increase in the steam pressure  I have seen a driver pat tbe hot sides  of his charge after a "successful run,  just as an owner often strokes the neck  of his favorilie r.-icehorse. I have  heard him . curse the* eompanv for  supplying dusiy coal, which "choked  up" her hiDgs,"' and , stories - about  engines not feeling well, .and having -  colds and rheumaiism are as old-as  railroading itself.    * , -   "  ,   These are the drivers who have*lost '  their positions. .They would not over-' '  work an engine,"no matter   what   the  time schedule called for and they_have __  found out that, in the1 rush of railroad-,  ing at piesent, it is not a case of " my  engine,"   but  the   company's  engine.   .  The successful engineer of tbdayhas no ;,  mercy on his engine.   He would drive''_.  her to the devil on an order  from   the  superintendent,-and if he loosens every'  valve and bolt, from the tender to  the  pilot, it does'not worry-him  any,  for  he knows that there   will  be  no    reprimanding so long as  he  gets  in  on  time, and that   the  roundhouse  men  ure waiting  to   tighten   up   "the old'  scrap heap."'  Ye gods! And   to-think   that  "the  -  scrap  heap"'    was   once -somebody's'  darling.  Tosave.timewhileshunling.be will   .  "pull her over," with twenty-five cars  behind-him.   regardless   of   cylinder  heads.   The old.  careful  driver would  not thinkof reversing   with  one  car.   "  When   starting,   he   will   yank  . the -  throttle   out  six  inches  at  a    time, "  whereas the man who now   walks  the  streets made hairbreath motions.    He >  races over the switches, and so long as  the wheels on one side are on the  rails .  it does not bother him if those on  the  other side aie in the air. 'lie does   not  shut  off   steam  until    within, three  hundred   y.-itds    from     the    station,  whereas    tlie    old-timer    closed  his  throttle when three-quarters of a mile'  away.  . Only [three things interest the 20th  century driver: his split second watch  liis stenin guage and the yellow timetable, whicirhangs before-him���������in -thecal]. There is uo time for romance  now.  Programme of Epworth League.'  Aprii 1st Consecration  "   Sth���������Doctrines of the Methodise  Church Pastor  "   15th���������South' Afi ican War   T. Lewis.

Tho world Is crowded with young  girls who havo preferred a rough life  of toll and misery to living with cold,  fndffferent stepmothers who made  them keenly feel tho loss they had  sustained when their own mothers  died.  ���������When the children are grown up,  there is no excuse for a man to remarry. Yet he sometimes marries a  young girl, but then It Is, on his part,  a sacrifice again. He wants to give  a companion and a playfellow to his  daughters, and to attain that end ho  does not hesitate to commit an infamy. Sometimes he marries an old  one and commits an act of profanity,  of less amour. A man, fond of h.fc  wife, does not see hor grow old; but  no woman above 50 can inspire in a  man of any age any other sentiment  Than those of friendship and respect.  He may be the friend of ench a woman, but he should not be her husband.  We might philosophize at great  length on such topics.  I loathe giving advice; yet I cannot refrain from saying as much as  this: If either a widower or a  widow 'fall in love again," let them  remarry by all means; but if the real  inducement Is the love of thofr children, let them, for the sake of heaven,  for tho very sako of thofr children,  engage the servlcsc ot a good,  motherly housekeeper. This has invariably proved to answer very well.  i  o  IMPORTANT FIGURES.���������TRADE STATISTICS FOR  THE LAST YEAR.  Imports  Dutiable Goods   Free   Goods.."

In some countries of    the far East  the question has 'been settled- so far  as women are   concerned;  they burn  their widows.     In many places much,  aearcr home it  is " not  infrequent to  bear    the    opinion    expressed    that  widows should be  disposed  of  as  in  Malabar-  Iii the case of  widowers.  I should  tecl inclined to answer the question  in the negative.      If you have been  happy la your first marriage, do not  risk    comparisons  which    might    be  odious.      If you have been unhappy,  do  not ask  for  a  second  dose.      In  both  cases, therefore.  I  come to  the  conclusion that the answer should ba  don't.  People   who   remarry���������men  or  wo-  en���������have invariably the same ex-  2. They apologize by saying that  Uiey take the important step for their  children's sake. If they were to  follow their o'wu (- inclination, they  would spend the rest of their natural  lives weeDing over the graves of tbe  beloved defunct, but they must not be,  selfish and think of themselves alone'  ���������they must remember that they have  children who depend on them for  their welfare, and they are ready to  do their duty and sacrifice their own  inclinations and feelings. The devotion of which the human heart is  capable, man's especially, will save  the race from oblivion when it is  jrone from  the earth.  A widower who remarries invariably reminds his friends that children  should be brought up under the  sweet aud beneficial care of a woman,  and he tells them that he remarries  to give a mother to his dear litllo  ones���������nine times out often an indif-  fent one, and one not unfrequently  a. bad one. Ii he had no children.  fee says that he is so lonely that he  ���������must have a companion, also a housekeeper, and he gives you to understand that all this is en tout bien  tout honneur. And he says it to his  fxiends and he repeats it to himself  so oftenthat he finishes by believing  st  is   so.  The widow with children will tell  you that she cannot support her  cbildren and that she wants a protector for them and for herself. And  she often speaks the truth. At any  rate if you listen to them all not one  ���������will ever tell you frankly that lie re-  ^���������aarnes    because, he has^ fallen in^  tove with a woman, and she because  she has met a man who appeals to  her fancy.  When people apologize fcr what  they do. I always suspect them of  fiavinc done something of wliich they  ar-e not particularly proud, if not absolutely ashamed.  No man has ever been in the next  world and returned to earth to tell  his fellow creatures what he saw  there, except Lazarus.but his contem-  prariea neglected to Interview him.  and we are as much In tho dark on  the subject as if he had never left the  grave.

March 31.���������Reuben  Good, n prisoner who Is confined la  the county jail awaiting trial on th������  charge of robbing his mother. Mrs.  David Lucsa, made a confession to  .Sheriff Law, of this county, in wliich  he accuses his mother of killing-an.  adopted child and kidnapping another  to take its plaee.  The child kidnapped, he claims,  was no other than Ray Elliott, whoso  abduction created so much excitement  in Marengo and the surrounding  country several years ago, and whp.  was thought to have been ��������� fltially  found in this city. In his-confession  Good tells the following story:  "A sister of his was betrayed in the  early' nineties, 'and went to a home}  for unfortunate girls. There she  gavo birth -to a child, which." sho  said, the authorities of the home sent  to her mother without making known  'her identity.  "His mother. ��������� knowing who the.  child was from,' received It and ap-  aparently gave it good care.'but kept  its 'identity unknown from the neighbors in La Porte City, whero she was  then living, under the pretense of  navmg adopted it irom an orpnan  asylum.  "One day. in a Ht of anger, she  struck it, knocking it out of its  chair to the floor so forcibly that it  died in a few minutes. Recognizine-  Che awful crime she had committed,  she immediately bethought herself to  burn the body and thus free herself.  "Making a great fire of chicken  feathers in the kitchen stove she cast  the child's body Into the flre until it  was entirely consumed.  "Then, fearing lest its disappearance would direct suspicion against  her. she fled to Marengo, where she  abducted a child about the size ot th*>  one sho had brought to r.uch a tragic  death from the streets where it wns  playing, and brought it back to La  Porte with her:.

The letter is short. Its quality can  be judged from the following excerpts:  "The war in South Africa will cost  not far short of two hundred millions, and the settlement *=ecms as  far off as ever. There are problems  to be solved in tho far east of the  first magnitude and the government  appears destitute of a clear, settled  policy. Already the huge expenditure for tho army and navy is going  up by leaps and bounds, and will  force Europe to add to Its ruinously  large armaments. Where is it to end?  "Tho Irish Question Is more to the  front than ever, and  thc government  seems to view it with a pathetic im  potenct*.  "The opponents of the Liberals arc  not endeavoring to take up the government's burden until they have  'exacted conditions that their policy  will not again be stultified by the rejection of their measures in .the  house of lords." "  Whether the conditions should he  exacted from the king, or whether  the Liberals must frankly appeal to  the country for the practical abolition of the house of lords is not quite  clear.

Montreal, -April 1.���������Judge Archibald in the superior court has". delivered his decision. in the celebrated  marriage case. HIb' honor holds that  marriage in the province of Quebec  Is a civil contract, and not a sacrament, as Is -declared by ..the Roman  Catholic church authorities. ' That  Delpit and Miss Cote, both Catholics,  were united by a protestant minister does not affect the law. and their  marriage is legal and binding.  This is in direct conflict with the  ruling of the ecclesiastical court at  Rome, /which several months ago  declared that marriage annulled on  tho ground that tho laws governing  tho Catholic church had been violated  and tho ceremony not legally performed.  It will be remembered that Delpit  was formerly private secretary to  Lieutenant-Governor Jette, having  been brought from Paris by Sir  Adolphe Chapleau. Seven years ago  he and Miss Coto were married by a  Unitarian minister. Three children  were born to them, all of whom are  now in" the possession of Dolplt's  mother ln New Tork. . - ���������  Tiring of his wife. -Delpit appealed  to Rome to have tlie marriage annulled, for reasons set forth above,  and two months later this was done.  Mrs. Delpit appealed to the supreme  court  with   the  result  as  above.  It is not known whether Delpit will  appeal the case to a higher court,  but' it is not improbable that ultimately the privy council will be asked  to' render judgment, in the case.  This is the first instance in which  civil and ecclesiastical laws in Quebec havo come in conflict The feeling on both sides is very bitter ever  since the suit was. entered'and-'promises to intensify with Judge.Archibald's - decision.

The adventures of Armand Guibert,  who, about six years ago, under the  name of M. le Compte de Perugulni,  cut a wide swatn in New York society, were brought to ah abrupt halt  yesterday, says the Montreal Star,  when he was sentenced to 30 days fn  jail by Magistrate Lefontaine.  The charge against Guibert was laid  by Madame Andre, his former mistress  who left Paris with him early in  1895, and after living a few months  in London, came to New Tork. At  the metropolitan city of tbe United  States Guibert gave his name as  Count Pernguinlj an . astonished the  upper .ten by his accounts of his ancestral castles in France and his  magnificent wine cellars, which, he  stated, contained the finest old champagnes, and whose contents would  amount in value from $150,000 to  11.00,000.  Madame Andre lived with him at  New York, but Bhe knows very little  of his adventures "In that city, ae  ho left her at home and sallied forth  for three or four days at a time,  frequenting the parlors of the best  society ln Gotham. / On- the strength  of his .domains' in France ana *-he re"  raarkable wine-cellar',' whose contents  ho Invited the gay New Yorkers to  sample when they came to gay Paris,  ho borrowed sums of money, and by  an industrious appllcatln to the interesting game ot poker, raised funds  to allow him to live in high estate.  Occupied with his pleasures in other  spheres, he neglected Madame Andre,  and sho left him and camo to this  city. "When his real position became  known, he was dropped by the gilded  youth of Gotham. He came to this  city, followed up his former mistress,  -and tried to Induce-her-to procure  money for him. She did not relish  this, however, and returned to New  York'.  Guibert followed her thither, and  when she refused to accede to his requests he threatened her life. ThingB  became so bad.that a little less than  :i year ago she applied' for a warrant  for-his arrest, and he .spent a couple  of months in the Tombs. ">���������  In the meantime Madame' Andre  returned' to' this city, and- made new  friends, who supplied all her wants.  Some three weeks ago her former  lover came-to this city and beg-iu  by writing her for money. Whon  this was not forthcoming he used  threats. A week, from -Tuesday last  he called at her home, and was  .shown into the" house by one of tho  young women who lived with Madumo  Andre. He asked to see the mistr-MS  of tho house"1" and when she came  down, not' knowng who her visitor  was, he drew a revolever and attempted to shoot her. '*���������".*"_    ,  A young man who happened to be  in tho house at the time, saw what  was about to happen,and ius*r.cl between the woman and tbe would-be  murderer, wresting the-weapon frcm  his grasp. This was rno eav/ task  as the revolver was secured to bis  wrist by a cord., At last he sot aw.iy  and was not seen for some days.  On" Mcinday "last,- however.: he .was  -arrested'by. Acting Detectives Cote  and Wilson, and yesterday appeared  before Judge Desnoyers'injthe-court  of special sessions. _ The officers who  searched him after his arrest found  on him what-resembled a sandbag,  but on closer examination, it was  "found to contain salt instead of sand.  The evidence against the accused was  crushing. "- -,���������������**���������  Some days ago, however, liagisti ate  Lefontaine received .* ��������� from Pans,  France, a letter from the police authorities, asking him to locate, if  possible, a-man named Armand Guibert, a native of Brittany, who has  been known under various aliases,  among which appears that of M. lo  Comte de Peruguini, who is wanted  in France on a charge of forgery.  Under these conditions Judge Des-  noyers condemned "Guibert to 30 days  in iail, and in the meantime the  authorities in France will be commu-  S������d with and will ^uMtaa have  time to  institute, proceedings, on the  Ch������dftherF?e>ncn- authorities, however, not have time to get here with-  tatte 30 days, the pseudo coun: wll  probably  be  held   on  the  charge  ot  carrying a concealed weapon.  32������L.

An arrangement  is made with tho cashiers of the  country banks to keep on their desks  pads furnished by the agent, the  pads ruled and perforated, for information about five persons on a sheet,  kept in duplicate by a carbon sheet.  As he .finds opportunity, the banker talks to his customers about insurance and: notes down their, ideas  on it; how much thoy carry, if any,  with what companies, etc. . One sheet  when filled out is sent to the agent,  who enters lt in a card catalogue,  while the banker keeps the copy as a  check.

Berlin, April 3.���������There is the highest authority for the statement that  tho investigation into: the causes of  the attack upon Emperor William by  Deitrlch Welland has not been concluded, but Is still being vigorously  pushed. The imperial court at LleD-  sic. which alone can,try cases of high  treason, has sent two officials to  Bremen to assist in the, investigation,  which is now "directed chiefly with a  view to clearing up three points not  yet explained, namely: What company Welland regularly' frequented  before the attempt; whether he received orders from plotters, particularly anarchists, 'socialists or Anglo-  phobes. to carry out��������� the attempt,  having also in view .what has become  of the suspicious individuals who  were seen near him just before it was  made and what weapon was used by  Welland or some other person.  Was  It Iron  or a Bullet?  Evidence "tending to throw, .light,  upon these poins has been accumu-'  lated, but It is too slight to warrant  Irdictmcnt. The .question whether  Welland actually threw a piece of  iron, as was at flrst alleged, or some  one fired a shot from an air rifle, is  still unanswered to the satisfaction  of the authorities. Emperor William  inclines "to the air rifle theory. His  physicians incline to the belief that  a piece of iron was thrown. The  Emperor is also convinced that Welland was a tool, and 'In this conviction he is sustained by his entourage. * *'  Immediately after the' "preliminary  investigation is closed tbe evidence  will be sent to the Imperial court at  T-elDsic, whose president will come to  BeVin at Eastertide 'to confer with  Herr von Schoenstadt."Prussian minister of justice, and with the imperial  judicial department, with a view of  ascertaining whether grounds - exist  to begin a trial for high treason".  SHAM BOERS  A despatch , from Hauvre, France,  says:  The French police have arrested a  batch of individuals wearing the  Boer costume, and trying to imitate  their language, while offering for sale  at any < price, salvage goods. The  story they told the credulous populations in the country towns through  which they passed was "that 200  Boers had seized two British vessels, that they had brought- part of  the cargoes to .Franco, to sell, aud  that they intended to return to,the  Transvaal with tho proceeds.

He talked about Jeffries refusing  to meet him as he bad agreed and  how ho showed his superiority over  tho champion by defeating Ruhlin  and  Sharkey.  Bob and Dunkhorst. like Ruhlin  and Martin, were pestered -by Frank  Hall, but lt did not prevent Fitz  knocking the villain of the play out  of a second story window, when he  attempted to bilbo him to lose a  fight, which appeared to be more  brutal than his boxlnc exhibition  with.

He is said to be about 30  years -old.���������i=-He^=--began^_life^as_a  servant boy for" a Jesuit priest iu tbe  Philippines at the age of four.  Early he learned to read-and write  under his master's, tuition. -At the  ago of 14 ho waa v enrolled In the  medical department, of .the Pontifical  University of-Manila, and became a  Mason. In ' 1888 " her- went to Hong  Kong, picked up some knowledge of  military tactics and Is said -to have  served in the Chinese navy under the  late 'Captain McGlffen.  He headed two Insurrections against  tho Spaniards and was reported-.to  have been' bought off with a heavy  bribe both times. When Dewey's  squadron sailed for Manila Aguinaldo  was at Hong - Kong. He organized  the .Insurgent kovernment with considerable detail. He was at ' first  president and later assumed a dictatorship.. The socalled congress met  at several towns that were termed  capitals until dispersed by the American troops.  After fierce fighting in the latter  months of the year. Aguinaldo in  January, 1897. advanced V from;- Cavite  Into the province of Manila, with  about 8000 troops, intending to carry  the rebellion into sections -which had  not yet risen, and also to join forces  with the insurgent general. Dlmaluga  He was unsuccessful, however, the  Spaniards cleared the province by the  middle of January and forced Aguinaldo back Into Cavite again. * The  Spaniards, on their part, were not able  to carry the campaign successfully  into the  rebel  strongholds,  and    the  rebellion   dally   assumed-   more   for  midable proportions.  The campaign was carried on with  varying fortunes until the following  August, when a more energetic policy  was Introduced by "the Spaniards.  Some months later Aguinaldo entered into negotiations for surrender,  On December 25. 1807. be ordered his  people to lay ddwn their arms. He  and his associates had been bought  off for $400.000' and a promise of  8400,000 more. He himself went to  Hong Kong. When war between the  United States had become Imminent  In the spring-of 1898 he returned to  the  islands;���������. and" headed  another  1 n-  fleet on'.; May 1, 1898, -the insurgents  ���������became more active, and after, surrounding Manila, Aguinaldo proclaimed the independence of. the Philippines on June 12, 1898, and signed it  "Emilio Aguinaldo, Dictator of the  Philippines."  He had previously issued a proclamation investing himself as president of the ministry with a gold collar, with a gold triangular pendant,  engraved with the sun and three  stars, a gold whistle to carry and a  stick with a gold handle, and a  tassel of gold.  He asked the powers to recognize  the republic and on September 30  he called an assembly of the Filipinos  at Malabos to ratify his proclamation.  This was done but not without much  opposition.  Tension between the American  forces-and the Filipinos grew more  strained as the year advanced, and  in- December General Otis was' ordered . by the ..Washington authorities. to  take Iloilo. He sent General' Carpen  ter upon ^he errand, but before the  American general arrived the Filipinos had driven put the Spanish garrison and were in occupation; General Carpenter, however, took possession, whereupon Aguinaldo put forth  a proclamation protesting against the  American occupation and American  pretension to sovereignty, denouncing  the course of President:McKinley. and  calling,upon the Filipino* to continue  their struggle for Independence.  On the night of February 4. 1899.  the long expected conflict bogaii.  Aguinaldo led some of the fights in  person. One of the blots in his career  was the assassination of Luna, a rival  chief,.who was stabbed to death on  Aguinaldo's  threshold  The fighting against the United  States.:troops In the' Philippines, for  which Aguinaldo was largely responsible, began on the -night of February 4.: 1899. two days before tho United States Senate approved the treaty  of peace with SpaiD  , A group of armed Tagalogs approach  the outpost '���������.-��������� at. Manila block house  No. 7. refused to halt when challenged and the first shots were fired.  Jn half an hour tbe flre was on from  the rebel lines on three sides of the  city, and the rebels were netting their  flrst taste of American fighting. That  the advance on the Nebraska outpost  was a deliberate plan to open hostilities, and authorized by the ..rebel  leaders, was made plain by the attempted uprising within the city walls  which was checked by the vlsllancn  of the soldiers on police 'dutr-    -  The' taunts* and 'insults of the  Filipinos while the Americans were  under strict orders not to flre on  them.'made" the change to 'active service welcome for regulars and volunteers alike. Fully 2000 rebels were  killed in the fighting that night, and  in the morning, when Dewey sent his  light draguht vessels close into shore  and raked the enemy's'position with  the machine guns. The American  losses were about 20-killed and 20(1  wounded. It Is estimated that 20.000  Filipinos were - engaged as against  13,000 Americans. s ���������  Aguinaldo's army fell -back north  and - south and the insurrection was  on   in earnest.  - On' the night of February 22. 1899,  Manila was set on flre "by Aguinaldo's  spies in the city. The ,districts of  Santa Cruz, San Nicholas, and Tonda  were flred simultaneously, and rebels  concealed in the brush shot at tbe  soldiers sent to Unlit the flames. The  vigilance of-*tb*> soidiers'on 'police  duty again prevented an uprising'in  the city, and the fire was checked  before it reached tbe -business "centre. Next day 500 suspects were arrested In Manila, and this effectually shut off any further attempts at  the destruction'of the city by flre.  On April 29, 1899, General' Quino,  acting for Aguinaldo. Bent two envoys  Colonel Manuel Arguella and Lieutenant Jose Bergal, to ask General  Otis's terms, and - was told that  nothing but unconditional surrender  would be , entertained. A truces was  refused.  Later' in the same'month Aguinaldo  sent a commission of seven to Manila  to discuss with General Otis his  terms of Burrender. The plan of government which President McKinley  was willing to -gront him was outlined to these envoys, and on May  23 they returned to report to Aguinaldo. The negotiations were without  result.  During* the last - year Aguinaldo's'  whereabouts have been a matter of  much conjecture. There have been  any number ot rumors, among them*  one that- he had 'been in Manila a  number of times, disguised in a woman's dresB.  Paler, near which place he was  finally caught, was where Lieutenant  j.���������Cr^Gi'lmore-.and���������14--Hien-of-the  gunboat Yorkton were caught and  held by the Filipinos for a long time.  Aguinaldo's wife and sister, and the  sisters of Cblonel-Leyba, were captured on January 1 of last year, at Ta-  laban, province of Bontoc, by Major  March ot the 23rd volunteers. Four  rebel officers, 18 of the men, and ope  American surrendered with the women.* His mother was also captured  and one son died during the flight  of the family before the American  troops.'  Chinese Blood in Him.  Aguinaldo Is only 29 years old, but  Americans who 'came ln contact with  him said that he appeared 'fully 10  years older. He .was a native of the  island, with Chinese blood In bim.  He was born in the vllage of Imus,' in  the province of Cavite, and lived  there until the rebellion. His family,  owned rice and sugar fields, the possession of which the order of the Re-  tollectos."the   largest  proprietors   of  adherents;  Rizal was soon ��������� afterward  deported.  In 1896 Aguinaldo became mayor of  Cavite.- He first became .prominent  in the rebellion which broke out. In  that year, the result of a conspiracy  which had been in preparation for  seven years in the Cratchuanan,' the  new circle created for political purposes by the natives in the Masonic  lodges, into which the Spaniards had  initated them. The outbreak came  in August 1896.  FUNSTON   JOINED   INSURGENTS  General Frederick Funston was  born ih Ohio 18G6, but his parents  moved to Kansas when he was yet a  child.  When the Cuban Insurrection broke  out against Spain Funston Joined the  insurgent army, with the Intention of  corresponding for a New York weekly. At Bayonne he led a cavalry  charge with GOO Cubans against 2.500  Spanish infantry. . At Las Tunas he  was wounded and had his horse killed  under him. Garcia made him a  captain, and when In 1898, the United  States, entered .the ^struggle the governor ot Kansas: appointed him  colonel of a regiment.  Colonel "Funston fought through the  war with characteristic bravery, but  It was not until he was sent to the  Philippines that he, attracted wide  public attention. After his exploit  in swimming the . . Rio V Grande, in  Nortli Luzon, at the head of his men.  under a hot flre from, the enemy, he  became known everywhere and was  the popular hero of the band, fighting  in the islands.  Early In .1900 he captured, a mass  of letters and : private papers.. belonging to Aguinaldo. "One" of these letters was directed to Aguinaldo������������������: personally and written by A. Mablni.  president of the council. It outlined  the details of the conspiracy to attack  Manila. Another letter waB from  Montague R. Leverson, of New York,  a member of the.Anti-Tmnerlaltatic  league. Leverson suggested to Aguinaldo that ho capture United States  ofllcers and treat them as pirates.  General Funston was married in������������������ a  brief respite from active service between the closeV of the . campaign in  Cuba, and the opening of the Phllin-  pine operations.

The" father "of Aguinaldo  Id consequence was kept poor, and  endured privation in order to enter  his son <in the'College of St.'.lean  Lateran. and afterwards to send him  to the University of St. Thomas at  Manila.   '  The cost of pursuing a course of  study at these institutions was not  less than 1.200 francs a year, and the  elder. Aguinaldo had great difficulty  to make both ends meet. Aguinaldo  passed easily rrom the college to the  university, but at' the latter ��������� place  he was considered by the professors  to have the most obtuse mind of. all  tne students.' , For three "'years he  ���������wore the.'costume- of V the- univridty.  and" observed its severe dlscHpllne,  Its frugal .regime, but. without obtaining   tne least   intellectual   oenent.  In fact the; Dominicans finally sent  him borne in sheer despair. ' He then  "iit'ered the Normal School;/of the  Jesuits. Here he made some progress,  but at the time his father died he, was  forced to return home tojtake care of  his patrimony, which continued to be  threatened by the lawsuits Instituted  by the order of the Recollect*;.

Fires Raging Oyer a  Large Area in  Australia -       ,'    '  Australian despatches 'say: -  South      Australia .' and      Victoria",  after simmering for a. week under a  heat  wave   which   reached   the  temperature of' 109 degrees in the shade,  have been visited with a series of the  most  disastrous bush fires the country has ever: known.  In the Mount Pleasant (S.A.) district 50.000 acres of grass land has  been destroyed by a fire which lasted  three days and covered an area of  nearly 100 square miles, doing upwards of ������10.000 worth of damage. " ���������* " ~  " The town itself- was only saved by  the desperate - labors . of the people,  women as well, as men,! who fought  the flames contiuuously for 30 hours,  beating down the burning grass with  lone green boughs wherever "it seemed possible , to make? a ' gap in the  onwards  sweep of the flames.  Driven by a fierce gale from the  redstone deserts of the northeast,  the fire advanced like a solid wall,  swallowing everything .in its path,  and it was only when the gale slackened that there was any chance of  checking the tide of destruction.  Sheep and cattle, maddened by the  blind and biting smoke, rushed in  hundreds into the heart of the fire  and were burned to ^cinders; horses  and cattle perished, by the scores,  and so fierce were the, flames that  when the fire was spent only a few  calcined bones on the blackened  plains were left of many 'thousand  head'of, live stock.  Fires broke out in the southeast of  south Australia also, In the , Mount  Gambier and Narrocoorte - districts,  doing damage to the extent of some  ������4000. The homesteads are mere plies  of ruins/, and the settlers have been  left penniless.  In Victoria,-to the terrible story ,of  grass and stock destroyed���������in "Wan-  garatta alone 2500 sheep were consumed���������must be added a mournful  loss of life.  In the Braxholme district six children were 'caught between two advancing columns of- flre and burned to  'death. Three- farm-hands���������perlsbedr  and upwards of 20 others are missing, no hope of their'escape being entertained.  Fires 'also broke out lu seven other  districts, tho total loss of human life  being roughly-put at,26, though it  is feared the total may be larger, and  in stock (chiefly sheep)  over 100,000  bead. ��������� ���������-,,-.  Byaduk and 1/3wer Byaduk townships have been almost wholly destroyed. Peoplo with their clothes  burning rushed to the creeks and  dams and stood there while the flre  swept ovor .them like a hurricane;  On one sheep station " 2,000 sheep  were roasted alive. 600 standing huddled together In one spot. . Two  miles further on 3,000 sheep were  charred to cinders, and in the district  ft is estimated that 10,000 sheep havo  perished. - .....  In the Birregurra district the  charred remains ot three little boys.  6ons of a settler, were found near  their home. They became separated  from their people, and struggled ou  as bravely as they could, until, blinded by smoke and flames, playing  around them, they fell hopelessly and  confused, to die within a few yards  of each other.  Trains Dash Through the Fire.  In the Wangaratta district a train  was caught in the flames, and as It  would have been certain dyath *o  pull up, the driver piled on steam,  and ran at express speed through the  Burning bush. ' Many of thc r.n_asen-  gers were badly scorched, nnd thn  cars were blistered and charred, but.  happily, no lives were lost     ,r  In the north eastern -district the  flre swept over an area of 300 square  miles. Trains along the railway line  bad to travel brtw"o*_n walls of flre  and hundreds of sheep were destroyed. Up to the time of writing seven  lives nave heen lost, nnd rnnortp  state that the fires arc still sweeping  through the country.  At Queenstown,. in Tasmania, the  locality fn which are situated the  works and mines of the Mount Lvell  company,  fires    have  been'   burning  since January 25. and   for   the nast  week the   bush has been a,fiery furnace for miles around. ���������  Houses were unroofed; by tho gale  Wonderful. City of the Dead Discovered in Alexandria  The most important discovery at  Alexandria, both in ancient and modern times, has lately been made  through a happy accident.  While an ordinary laborer was  working at Korn El Shogafa. one of  the. dllrtTest and most neglected portions of the city, his pick came  against a rock which gave a hollow,  echoing sound. The man informed  the authorities, and on the place being  excavated,' a wonderful sight presented itself to the spectators. It was no  - -less than jan astonishing '.'city ol  the dead*' : with Its hundreds "of corridors, temples :of beautiful-sculpture  and artistic skill, huge cemeteries  with their skeletons more than 10  centuries old,. five sarcophagi, hun-'  dreds of pillars majestically standing  In that beautiful,- but dim and solemn  nechropolls. No less than four  stories are found iu this wonderful  subterranean city.  One of the most perfect and beautiful buildings is a fine temple, supposed to be of the epoch" of Septimus  Severus. In the front part .of it there  is a tomb with, a . large relief representing the mummy, of Osiris, reposing on a funeral blcr.; Anubls with  one hand holds towards him a Greek  libation cup, while the other hand Is  placed on the heart of Osiris. The  bier of Osiirs is supported by a finely  sculptured Hon, which holds In its  paw the pen ; of Truth;"; Underneath  the -ll<|u are three canoplc gods.whlle  to the right and left are the gods  Thoth and Horus.. There is':a smaller  relief to the right is.representing the  two godesses Isis and Nepthis weeping, while to the left stands an Imposing picture representing the priest  Herheb, the priest of funerals, clad  In a garb of panther skins and reading the Book "of the Dead to a female, probably Isis. who brings offerings.  There aro In this temple three important sarcophagi, the largest of  which contains two sculptured masks  of Vomedy and Tragedy, while the  other two, on the right and left, are  the* same- containing ���������" two"-heads of  the Medusa. In -the --centre is Apis  receiving - the offerings of Isis and  Horus, who are carrying necklaces  for Apis. Then we have -two life-  size figures of tho gods Set and Aun-  bls, each with a curiss and' a rod of !  office, and their attitude' resembles '  that of Roman ocers. On either side ',  of the door are two figures, of a man  and a woman, the latter having her  hair done in the Roman style, but the  pose is quite" Egyption.���������Cairo correspondence of New York Times.

Great Strides Since the World's Fair  at ChicaEO.  The world  has    come  to recognize  that the American mind haa more in-  genitive genius in it than that of any  other people. The public has become  familiar with'the advances American  machinery '.and      implements  ' have  made  in'   winning favor    in foreign  countries, and the daily records go to  show that this    progress    continues.  The World's Fair was a fine portrayal of.the abilities of Americans, and  the   years   that  have    passed   - since  then have been   years of   wonderful  progress.      In these years many inventions have been brought to a state  of perfection, and the    exhibit    that  can be made today    is   such  >as ta  cause all ta marvel    at the development of recent years,   i The Pan-American Exposition will be the greatest  "exposition held    on  ' this    continent  since the Chicago fair, and it is intended   that in   every  department   it  "shall portray' the advancement up to  date.   - For this reason it is evident  'that In many ways the Pan-American  Exposition    will    actually excel    the'  World's  Fair.' a  fact    made possible  by the inventive genius of men who  have -been careful, energetic workers  in numerous fields.     This will be especially true In the' connection electricity" will have   with   the'Pan-American  and  the part it will  play In  making the Exposition a success.   , In  some respects the  electrical .features  of the World's Fair    wore    novelties,  and in many cases they have advanced iu favor until now they aro looked upon as necessities of ��������� the   daily  work.     This is one of the results of  -progress-,.-and-when-=people_have_seenJ  all the electrical features of the Pan-  American Exposition   they will   feel  that electricity  Is the greatest forco  the world has known to Improve the  conditions of a people and develop a  country's resources.  ?. 5URNS 8c  mil  wm  .
