In   the  States  a   colossal  combination lias piaclieaily - miUdied  I'Oinpelilioii     at    one   .slioke.     The  Dominion   government is  confionted  with   the nltei native   ofadcpling  Iini  principle of government owneiship or  of seeing the'national  railway system  swallowed up by, the, same   eoinbina-  ��������� liun. -'.

The. man  on  tho 'street is in possession of.a test-by  which   they  are   all gauged.    Heh'.is  made up his mind thai not only is the  state     ownership     of   transportation  facilities  the  best   policy    in    other  lespeetB,  best  for the people and hest  for'the piogiess of  the country,   but  also that it is the cheapest and   nothing  short  of it will ultimately satisfy  him, .And  government   will  succeed  government  until   he  get's   what  he  wants. .

"Yes. I do," said the New Zealand  piemifi'. *'lL is the only way in which  Llie mill o,Liis should he owned and  operated.

Nearly all tlie loads, are, milking  money. The cash levenues for 1SS1I)  amounted to uloie than $7,000,000,,  while the expendituoe was less than  $5,000,000. The earnings of some, of  't be lines ranged lroui 5 to 13 per cent.  The matter is very cjosely figuied, and,  on the i oiids belonging to the government, theie is no incentive to give  anything tlse hut the best service at  the lowest possible cost."  FERGUSON'S PROSPECTS.  The  Outloolc  for  the   Season   of  1901  Very Promising.  The prospects for a' season ol  unorecedeiiteil activity und prosnerity  in "tlie Ludeau in the year 1001 nre  excellent. -There seeing to bo no doubt,  at all that the C. P.

Already there are piospects of a  brewery, wholesale liquor si ore.  another hotel, a bakery aiid a drug  -tore opening * in Fec^tison.

Last month  nearly a.hundred lots Wuiiiged hands  on the Fergii-on townsite. Altogether  it looks a.-if the long expected boom  iu the mining centre of the Laideau  hns ht-giin to hum.

A Dainty and Attractive Display of thc  Spring Fashions at the Madison M.lli-  nery Parlors.  The;iadies of Revelstoke this week  have enjoyed iu the shew of millinery  at the Madison Parlors a treat such as  has never been surpassed either in  Revelstoke or in many business centre.-  of much gi eater pretentions. The  display was very rich and varied and  I be artistic designs in hats and toques  weie so beautifully modelled as to call  forth encomiums fiom the- most,  lastidious.  Amidst uhe charming and bevvildei-  ing array thu hat which was perhaps  the one most admired was a large  picture hat made of black insertion  straw, faced with tucked tulle and  trimmed with tulle edged with narrow  Saleucienie.s lace and-.finished under  lhe Ini111 wilh n handsome black tip  and jet ornament.  Another design was a very handsome toque wilh gold and black over a  soft-rolled brim ol white tulle finished  with ribbon crown, the loops being  caught, witli a handsome jet oruain-Mit  and large black pompon flowers at the  side.  A third especially effective hat. wait Leghorn faced wilh black silk velvet  antl sott luce edge trimmed with black  chilfou and tips, finished at the side  wilh n handsome long gold buckle.  Again one particularly admired was  a lame black hat, faced with black  tucked chiffon, tlie upper biim of black  and gold lace, a handsome black flower  crown, with yellow centre triiiiiueil  with black chiffon and osprey caught  with gold and steel buckle. A dainty  finish was a long black chiffon tie  which was very effective. :  ' A white chiffon hat wilh folded  brim and caught with gold bunds,  trimmed with lace run witn black baby  ribbon and pink and white roses, was  also .1 centre of attraction.  Some .of -the. dainty effects in new  flowers are tinsel roses and among'the  new tiiminings gold and black aie  very much in demand.    ,  R. XV.

Provincial Health ofiicer, in his leeent report upon typhoid  fever and sanitation matters has the  followinglosay lespecting the methods  adopted by the Chinese market  gai dt;ners:  ���������'One more matter which I fear is  entirely tnisuiidei.slood in this country  is Chinese guldens. I found that in  neiirljr all the families in whicli  typhoid, infection* occnied it was the  custom to get vegetables from Chinamen. Now, it is not generally known,  hula fait, that vegetables can, and often  do, cany infection. Of coiuse, most  vegetables are purified by boiliug, but  many���������such as salad and celery���������are  served raw, This, 110 doubt, is the  cause of iiKiii' trouble than is generally-  supposed, and, therefore. I thought it  my duty to visit some of the guldens,  supplying Victoria. I only vibited  Chinese guldens, and niu satisfied that,  should the pal ions do the same, they  will make a change. In manv of them  pigs me kept. There-is no pietence ol  keeping the place clean. The pens me  simply an .'illumination, the yards jusl  as hul. In two instances, I saw oif.il  lying around, and fiom its condition  must have been theie for some days.  Such .tie some of the surroundings  wheie niaikel, vegetables aie kepi.  This is had, but nothing compared  to the dirty habit all these Chinamen  have of pieserving tlie urine for the  fertilization and whitening of vegetables." Each garden has a barrel  always full of urine; which is allowed  to decompose so that, plenty of ammonia, develops. The vegetables are  then finely sprinkled with - this.  Outside this disgusting practice, the  health aspect is grave, because these  vegetables, unless cooked, will carry  typhoid orother'diseases,-just' us sure  as mill; or water. I would recommend  thai, this matter be actively dealt  with." -   .     "'  ,  The large number of private' resi-.  'dents in the city who are accustomed'  to put chase their vegetables from the  Chinese peddling vendors who call  with such persistently at ehir side  doors, should carefully consider the  above lepoi t.

HUME  &C0  In another column will be.found the  declaration of .incorporation of the  Revelstoke- Hospital Society taken  from-the-B.-C. (-razette.=_The purpose  of the society is there stated to be "lo  establish and c maintain . a private  hospital,for the treatment of disease."  The expression "private hospital", is  intended of course to convey the idea  that the institution is not under  government or municipal control but  is -.undertaken - hy .private* persons  formed into the society with the above  title. It is obvious that the activity  of* this society .is not "necessarily  limited to the erection nf the proposed  hospital building and the maintenance  of the institution" theiein. They can  go to'work "and open a hospital in  town here tomorrow if they choose  to do so. They can , rent -a  building suitable for the purpose and  commence operations right away.  There is work right to their hands now,  if they choose to do it and as things  now'stand they are the only people,-  wbo can do it. Right now in this  town there is more than one serious-  case being trealen in private houses  and hotels, which should be cared for  iu 11 properly appointed hospital.* Any  day a railway or mining accident may  bring half a dozen or more victims of  some unforeseen catastiophe to be  treated in town, whom tn send all the  way to Kamloops or Golden would be  to pronounce their death warrant. Il  is for tlui trustees to consider these undoubted facts and the very serious  responsibility in which they stand  with regard to them. As far as the  Herald knows, since the last hospital  meeting no further steps have been  taken to get subscriptions for the new  hospital or members into the society.  The Herald hopes to see a  little more energy put into the  work of the society and would  suggest a meeting of members  ������t an early date to discuss the advisability of starting' work at once in a  rente.l building, the appointment of a  committee to solicit fresh subscriptions, the filling of the ranks of the  society witii inembeis and such like  matters.

It -is  lecorded that in her efforts to obtain  exclusive iurisdiction.over the marbles  this yonng lady not only kicked and  sci .itched her little brother, but also  spat at him.'   - -  v Paterfamilias, in administering a  lecture apropos ofthe fracas,' passed  lightly over the scratching and biting,  as being perhaps manifestations of sex,  hut the spiting struck him as 't specially heinous offense.   ,  "My dear child," he said, reprovingly, "I can't see where you accquire  such extraordinary habits, unless the  devil himself 'puts them into yonr  head."        .     ���������  ���������'1 think it was the devil who made  ,me bile and kick," said thi.s sedate little  minx, reflectively���������"but the spitting,"  she added���������"that was entirely my own  idea."

The Height of  Elegance  A Report, Which Will' Probably be  Soon Confirmed, That Superintendent  Duchesnay is to" Receive Promotion  and to bs Succeeded by Mr. Kilpatrick.  There is a rumor prevalent, which  the Herald hits good reason to believe  is based on solid foundation that about  the middle of the piesent month Supt.  Duchesnay will receive promotion ancl  will leave Revelstoke. It is further  rumored that the new superintendent  of this division is to be Mayor . Kil-  patiick. The Herald gives this  announcement as a rumor, which  theie is good grounds for believing to  be true, although there is no official  eonfii m.'ttion obtainable. Revelstoke  will hesotry to lose Mr. Duchesnay.  since that*, geutleiuan has duriug his  stay amoiiK us made friends in every  direction by his unfailing courtesy aiid,  willingness to oblige. On the gentleman, who is named as his -successor  the Herald - need hardly dilate..  Revelsloke has enjoyed the advantage  of his services on ihe city council now  for three year's and at the last election r  pat him in the chief magisti-ate's chair :  by a sweeping majority. We know a',  good man, when we can get one arid  theie is uo doubt that the C. P.

The coal is  certainly of no value in the ground,  and until it is dug up and shipped the  country  realizes   nothing on- it.  "-In  other words, it is not the coal, but the  labor    that   counts.     If 10,000  men",    -  instead of 900, can be put to  work  in *  the Ciow's Nest so much the better for'.  B.   C.     It   is   immaterial, .to -British  Columbia where the  coal goes  to,   so.  long as it is paid for.    It would be just  as reasonable to ask Nanaimo or Cape  Breton  colleries to refuse to sell to the  United States as   to - ask.1 th'e .'Crow's  Nest  Pass , Company to do the same.

The  crowning error  of Canadian   history  was in permitting these coal  fields  to  pass into the hands of a  private -company.   A production of 100,000 tons -11.  day���������and  such   a  production   is  nob -  an impossibility���������could, under govern- ,  ment owuership.-have   been   nride  to  pay  the  whole   Dominion    revenue.

If  the   government did its  duty   by   the   people   ib  would expropriate these railways and  coal lands and  operate  them   in   the  puhlic interest.   It is a matter of only  a very few"years until the government  will be compelled to extend the I. C. R.  to tbe Pacific  coast,   and   the   public'  ownership of the Crow's Nest Railway  and its branches would greatly  facilitate this national   undertaking."    The  government will also have to   open   a  mint in the near future and there is no  reason why it should  not  operate  a.  refinery in connection, thereby supplying a  home market  for  Kootenay'a  mineral production. ,    -  This is the only logical and permanent solution of the smelter ami  railway questions.���������Paystreak.

Airing himself in a London  ballroom, he was pressed by his host to  take part inthe worship of Terpsichore,  bub for a longtime resisted. At last,  moved by the statement that his  supposed partner was exceptionally  pretty and an heiress witbal, he relented. "Well, twot her out, dear boy," _  he drawled. He was promptly led up '  to tbe expected fair one, bub unfortunately she had overheard his remark.  The introduction took place and the  maiden, raining her pincenez, surveyed'  him with a critical air for some score  of seconds.

All INCONSISTENT POLICY  The  remarks  of  R.  L.  Borden    in  'me budget debate clearly define   the  eolicy  of  the  Conservatives    on the  trade Question., -They have pronounc-  ������___, in favor of an inter-Imperial preference ln trade.    They desire to see  tie products of the various  portions  of   the   empire   protected   within    it3  bounds by a tariff    high    enough to'  ' militate  against" foreign  competition.  This  policy  is" of  a  far  wider significance   than   a   mere     Question   of  Canadian  industry  or  Canadian  revenue.    It affects every colony of    the  empire and    il    carried'   into  effect  would' ��������� confer   benefits   incalculable  opon Canada.    Within thc bounds qf  the  empire  there  are   industries  and  resources, of every kind so that protection based  upon  an  inter-Imperial  preference would virtually mean free  trade within   the    empire     and   adequate protection for home industries.  The Liberals'oppose this policy. They  do   not  object  to   free   trade  within  imperial bounds  but thev desire-that  \ it should be carried further so as to  take in the the nations of the world  and ..argue that    the    government  of  Canada has not the power to fix the  trade  policy   of   either   Britain  itself  or   other   colonies.  This may be true enough but tliere  is no doubt whatever that the   other  colonies   would   he   quite   willing    to  meet Canada  la  s. scheme of mutual  protection.     The     present     time     is  yery opportune for the enunciation of  such   a   policy.      The   federation   of  Australia   does   away   with   thc   diffi-  tulties  of  opening  negotiations  with  a   multiplicity   of     governments     at  the antipodes.   The feeling in Britain  against absolute free trade is rapidly  SJining.     It   is   felt   there  that    tho  industries feel the want of protection  from   foreign   countries.     Free  trade  frna destroyed to a great extent   the  asricoltural industry in England, thus  sapping  the   great     landed   Interests  which  exert  the  most beneficent' in-  ���������Silence ever-felt-by-a-nation--or-peop!e.  Therefore statesmen  of  England  are  slowly but surely gravitating towards  protection,   and   are   believed    to   be  ���������aot  unfavorable to  an   inter-imperial  preferential trade.  tt can be seen at a glance the advantages that would accrue to Canada from protection in its  favor in th'e markets of -the  old land. The cattle of our Western  ranches would oust the steers of  Wyoming and Texas, and the stall-  fed farmers' beef rrom New England,  from their place on thc British mar-  Vets and consequently Increase in  value. Our lumber would take the  ���������place of that now supplied hy the forests of Michigan and Maine and  would command a higher price, while  an embargo upon American wheat  would raise the product of Canada  greatly in value.  It is true that Canada cannot djc-t  tate thc trade policy of Great Britain  or of sister colonies, but a grertt deal  siay dc none in iniluencing lt-ana even  to obtain its eventual ���������"'t'onsiimation.  ���������*A.t*-the time of confederation none of  the Canadian provinces had a right  to dictate to the other and yet the  scheme was. initiated anil carried to a  successful-issue. One of tho planks  of the Liberal platform of ISOS wns  "tin restricted reciprocity" yet the  carrying cut of that policy involved  ���������what* the Liberals' now call "dictation" to n foreign government.  The policy adopted on this p-ii.it by  the Conscrvitives of Canada Is perfectly feasible and in accord with thc  prowirs Imperial spirit.

We wish succees to Mr. Borden  and his followers in the statesmanlike  Ftand they have taken on the great  question and which' if properly followed np will undoubtedly end in s,nc-  ���������c-essful consumation.  I  I  I remember an occasion when the  scientific world received a veritable  "message from Mara." which excited tbo liveliest interest and astonishment. I am not now referring to the  admirable play which we have all enjoyed, and whose title is expressed  by t.he words just written.. I am  thinking of the meeting of tho British association, which was held at  Plymouth in the year 1877. This particular meeting, otherwise memorable  from the circumstance that th? marvellous instrument, which we know  as the telephone was then first made  known to somo of us. was by a singular coincidence tho occasion on  which ono of Iho most striking astronomical discoveries of the century was first announced on this side  of tho Atlantic.  It was on August 11, 1877, that Professor Asaph ].Iall. using tho great refracting telescope in tho observatory  of Washington, discovored two  minute satellites revolving abaut' the'  planet of Mars. Having taken another couple of night* to verify and  complete his observations, he dispatched tho tolesram to Europe.which  was read at thc British association.  My reason in now referring to this  matter of somewhat ancient history  is to call attention to tho dato when  discovery was mado. I should not  perhaps say' the date���������-I shoui.l ss.v  rather tho month, of the year. Asaph  Hall's famous observation was made  was in August.and this is a fa.t which  all who deairo to see wonderful sights  in Mars should lay to heart. They  need never expect to obtain very nt-.  tentive hearing from tho astronomical world unless thay a.ro ahlo to say  their- observations of the planet have  been made ln or about the month of  August. No not, please, lot it inferred from this statement that Mars  is in a favorable position in August  every year. This, is. lndoe4. by no  means "the case. For example. Mars  is not at thc present moment in a  reallv good position for observation;  but next August is cannot bo observed at all.- Perhaps a tew words ot  explanation will bo necessary.  The earth and Mars and the sun  come into line.' with the earth between  the' two other'' bodice, ancn every  two years-and two months, or'to be  more" accurate, once everv 780 days.  When thia is tho case Mars in said  to be in opposition and comes on tho  meridian at midnight. The planet is  then in general much nearer to us  than when he occupies in-_t.h*_r position. If tho orbits of tho earth  and of Mars were each exact circles  then the distance' between the earth  and Mars at each opposition would of  course be always the same: and accordingly every two years adn two  months the planet would bo in a.  good position for observing and even-  one of those periods ot good seine;  would he .equally advantageous with  every other. But. the tracks of the  earth and of Mars arc elipsis. *iut  Circles. Mars, in fact, departs! so  considerably from a." circle that the  distance from the earth to the Dlanot  at tho time of opposition Is in, some  cases, twice as great as it is at other  times.' We know, of course, that if  the distance of an object ba ..c-ublcl  the apparent size it present*, is" xc-  duced ono fourth, and conseciuentJy  the features or. S-Iars are seen four  times as well during favonb'o op] o-  sitions as they are at unfavorable.  We thus obtained u iruide as to thc  occasions on which the planet can be  seen  to  the  greatest "possible  advantage.    Thc point in the earth's track  whicli approaches most closely to the  orbit  of  Mars   is    that    which     our  earth occupies on August 2G in  each  year.     On   that   particular   dar-   the  earth passas between the sun and the  point in the heavens in which Mars  must   be  situated  when   he  Is   nearest to the sun.    In like manner,    on  February 22  in each year, the earth  passes   between     thn    sun   and   that  point in the heavens in which  Mars  must be  situated when he is  at the  greatest distance from the sun.    We  can now readily obtain the principles  which   will   guide   us  in  determining  whether  an   opposition   is  or    is not  favorable to the study of the features  of the planet.      If it should  happen  to take place on February 22 "it would  be about as  unfavorable as possible,  for-if-thefopposition-happenedT:it-any  other   time   of   the   year, the     earth  and the  planet would  be  nearer  together.    We  thus  see that we  have  by that  date  alone  u   very   fair  test  as to the,-'*xpellence of any opposition  of Mars'aor the purpose of a minute  scrutiny   of  its  surface.    The  nearer  that date is to August 26, the better  the opportunity, while the nearer that  date is to February ?.-", thc worse tho  opportunity.  For an opposition of Mar*-, to take  place at the .most unfavorable time Is  a snmc-wliP.t rare occurrence     fr. dirt'--  owever. har.nen iii i_>77. .when the  opposition occurred on Septemho. .">  which was onH- 10 days after the best  conceivable d.i!<*. It was' the kuo-iv  ledze of this eircurast'in'"-.* whirl, induced Professor Asaph ir.ill*-to-tako'  advantage  of  this  evcoDtional  opDor-  unlty. and ^o undert.-ilce that, narofu":  search in" 'ths* sa-Celliti"- of Mars  wr_i_.h*'*was orownrvl with such "<���������-  rrfarl'a.ble success. .Those of r.st *-yhn  remember the -iDpearnncR' of Mara"  as -i clorious rucldv^nrh in the autumn  of 1877 will pn=*ily apnrp-Matp. the  significanc" of azt oppositini which  occurred  at thy rishi timo     Vv'--> had  they are to be seen now. when tho  opposition is about as bad as lt could  he. If theso wonderful things , had.  veritable existence, it would not be  in January or February that we  should bo reading of thorn; for, as  already remarked, in such months as  theso we can never oxpect important observations to be mode -of Mars.  No one who has ever looked at the  glory of that planet In an August  or September opposition, and its  comparative feebleness when the opposition occurs ln less favorable  months, will hesitate for a moment  in viewing with very gravo doubts  any statements of alleged signs in the  planet at tho present time. I do  not, indeed, go as far as to say that  it is absolutely imposRlblo for a discovery to be mado about the globe  of Mars at a February opposition,  but the imsrobability of such an  achievement is so exceedingly great  that an unusual amount of testimony  of the very strongest kind would be  required to outweigh the presumption  against  it.  -Por this reason alone, eveu if there  were not many others, astronomers  attach no importance whatever to  to certain statements about Mars  which havo recently obtained considerable circulation. Whether there  aro Inhabitants on that plant we have  not tho slightest idea. Even if there  are inhabitants it would bo extremely doubtful whether they ure conscious of the existence cf tills earth  or feel any desire to communicate  with us. But we mav be certain that  if there arc 'inhabitant.*! on Mars,  and if they have been =o ill advised  as to have chosen thc present time  for making efforts to cause some demonstration which b1ir.11 bo perceptible' on this earth, then their astronomical knowledge must he in a deplorable condition. They have chosen  as the occasion for such efforts the  very worst possible opposition. If  the Martians are Intelligent they  ought to know that a signal to he  perceptible two miles off has to be  four timed rs big a-a a signal perceptible one mile of?, and that consequently they would be making an  utterly foolish waste of their powers  if they attempted any communications at a time po inappropriate as  the present. '  WRONG BODY    .  Fnneral Delayed  Denver, Col., March 20.���������Tlie funer-"  al[had to be postponed because' tho  wrong body was* in the coffin.

The exchange  of dead bodies was made at Denver.  Who made thc mistake is a matter  of dispute between the Denver undertaker and the assistants at the semi-  charitable home in this city.'with the  burden of proof on the home. The  body to be buried was that oi n 10  year old boy.  The lad died here and the body  was turned' over to the undertaker  with instructions to have it in Col-  orada Springs by Sunday morning,  as thc funeral was to take place then.  Tlie undertaker's assistant received  it from the home and -dressed it according to instructions.

Tbe coGin was put in place in the  parlor of thc- sorrowful home about  an hour before the time scheduled for  tho last rites.  When the lid was taken from the  coffin it was readily seen thnt a mistake had been made.  A wrong body had been shipped.    '  Telegrams were sent to the undertaker telling ot the great mistake.  The latter replied that tha mistake  had not been noticed till he rpcetved  the telecram. He was: willing to  make amends, but under the circumstances, ittle could be don<->.

The peculiar feature of hi3  scheme for possessing himself and  Canada, by right of discover}"-, of the  waters which wash the* Pcfe, and  ���������whatever land they may contain, are  now fairly familiar.

Mr. Cook was effusively greeted by  his newly-found allies of tho Conservative party, and by somo of those  with whom he had formerly been associated in Liberal ranks. His face  wore a nervous smilo as he towered  over every other figure in   tho room.  Chas. Marsh was present as private  counsel for Mr. Cook.  Mr. Ritchi<2���������Were you a candidate  for appointment to the'senate?  Mr. Cook���������Yes, from 1896 down till  tho failing of Sir Oliver Mowat's resignation. The first interviews I had  were after-Sir David MacPherson's  death, with several members - of the  government. My interview with Sir  Oliver Mowat was not very pointed,  that is Sir Oliver gave me no definite  promise of support. Sir Richard Cartwright I next saw. ��������� He told me  there was one gentleman who had  claims on the party over me, but that  Senator Ferguson was at ttiat time  very ill and'could not-last long,'and'  that in caso of hia -demise - the  other gentleman , anA I could; take-  seats .oh the floor of the senato at the,  same- time. Sir Richard did not tell  me who the gentleman was; but "I  knew it was George A. Cox of Toronto. Sir Richard said this gentleman had more recent claims on party  than I had, and I quite agreed to  this.  Mr. Ritchie���������What was the nature  of the claim?  Mr. Cook���������It related to the elections.  Mr. Ritchie���������Was it in connection  with the stump?  Mr. Cook���������No! Senator Cox never  took   the stump.  ' Mr. Ritchie���������How was it then?  Mr. Cook���������He assisted in money.  Reference was then turned to the  matter of private correspondence  between Cook- and_M. C. Cameron,'  now dead, copies of which Mr. Ritchie  produced.  Mr. Blake objected to production  of alleged copies until it was .ascertained whether or not the originals  were to be had. This objection, however was overruled and the letters  were read.  Correspondence began August 24,  1S5G. and related to efforts Cook was  putting forth to secure 'the appointment. Cameron had seen several  ministers on behalf of Cook and referred to the claims of the various  candidates for appointment.  Mr. Comeron showed him a letter  in Toronto from Sir Richard Cartwright which Cook read.  Mr. Ritchie ��������� Do you, remember  what the letter said?  Mr. Cook���������It said that .Cook must  surely do" something in this connection, that is, in connection with the  senatorship. I asked Cameron what  something meant. He said it meant  510,000. I was indignant at the proposal and said I would not pay one  cemr"as~T~deservedi the "appintment'iif  return for my services'to the party.  I met Mr. Cameron in the course cf  the week following, and was accompanied by my solicitor.S. C. Biggs.'  Mr. Cameron then repeated his offer,  which I declined to accept. My efforts to seure this appointment then  ceased until after the next vacancy  occurred.  Mr. Ritchie���������Did you get possession  of the letter from Sir Richard Cartwright?  Mr. Cook���������N'oi- Cameron said Sir  Richard .had told him iiot to part  with  it.  Sir Mackenzie Bowell���������Were you  suro   or   Sir   Richard's   handwriting?  Mr. Cook���������Yes;    I would swear to it.  'Mr.   Ritchie���������Did   you' renew   your  correspondence with  Cameron?  Mr. Cook���������Yes; and I received a"  letter in reply stating that IJ. Jhad  refused to play the cards and therefore lost the game. I understand this  referred to my declining to put up  310.000. Mr. Cameron said in his  letter that he intended leaving the  government to select tho men " for  office as they chose.- Tn December,  1897, and May, 1898, I again saw Sir  Richard Cartwright with regard to  a senate vacancy. I told Sir Richard that Ar. C. Cameron had demanded $10,000 from me on a former occasion for a call to the senate. Sir  Richard replied: "Well, Cameron  wanted to get some money for Ttdrty  pin poses, and took thjs means of  obtaining  it."  Mr. Ritchie���������Who was It had mentioned  that amount?  Mr. Cook���������r think Sir Richard aairt  Cameron suggested that amount.  Sir Mackenzie Bowell���������Sir Richard  bad not objected to the offer being  mndc?  Mr. Conk���������No: he knew Cameron  wns going to make it? '  Correspondence wa3 then produced  between Cook and Cartwright which  comprised requests from the former  right aloiis;, after the offer from  Mr. Cameron, which showed that Cook  was far from being discouraged as  far back as 189G. It was not till July  30, 1899. that Mr. Cook announced in  a letter to Sir Wilfrid that he was  no longer, a candidate for appointment to tho senate.

Mr. Marsh here jogged the witness'  memory in regard to a conversation  he had with W. T. R. Preston just  beforo the Kerr appointment.  Mr. Cook���������Yes; Mr. Preston came  to my office saying ho had instructions from Ottawa to tako .$10,000  for a senatorship from me. I forget  whether Ue said Sir Richard Cartwright or the government had told  him to seo me, but I told him I would  not pay the money.  Mr. Preston then said that If I did  not pay the money I could not have  tho appointment. The government  was very anxious, Mr. Preston said,  to give Cook the appointment, but  could not do it without the payment  of $10,000; thay wanted the money  for party purposes.  Mr. Blake���������How was it you did  not remember this conversation with  Mr. Preston when Mr. Ritchie asked  you in the flrst place?  Mr. Cook���������I did not think of it at  the time.  Mr. Blake���������Your memory must bo  very defective nnd may bo equally at  1 fault in other connections.  Objection was made to a cross-  examination which would necessitate  disclosing tho names of Mr. Cook's  chief witnesses hut this was not upheld. It was announced that the two  chief witnesses to support Mr. Cook's  main charges nro Frank McDonnell  and Mr. Hancock.  Just before the committee adjourned, Mr. Blake put a further question with regard to Cook's conversation with Cartwright, touching the  Cameron request for $10,000. Mr.  Cook said he asked Cartwright whether- that gentleman had authorized  Camsron to make the offer. Mr. Cook  said that in reply Cartwright told him  tho money was wanted by Cameron  for party purposes and ho (Cartwright assented to it.r ,.  In further cross-examination Mr.  Cook qualified the word assent - as  applied to Sir Richard and'said the  minister had not used the word'assent.  o   London, March 25.���������PririceEs Beatrice may become Queen Consort of  Holland by virtue of her marriage to  tho Grand Duko Weimar to whom ehe  is eng&ged if Queen Wilhelmlna' does  not give birth to a child.

J.,  while its. inhabitants were asleep this  morning a'nd reduced ' 11 buildings,  stores _and residences, to ashes. The  conflagration was extraordinary in  its.character and its origin. ...,,,-.-"   ,,  The village is" in "a valley":alqhg  the' line of the Jersey Central ' railroad. An immense freight train was  coming east at 6:30 a.m.. It, was com-',  posed - of a string of coal cars and.  18 'tank"' cars. High- above the village the track of the railroad ran  along the side of a mountain. They  descend as they approach the village,  but 'even at the station are considerably above the main street, which  runs up to tho depot at a steep incline.   ���������  A few ��������� miles west of the village  while coming down the incline around  the mountain, the train parted. Tho  engineer on the forward end .'pulled  open the throttle of the engine and  tried to race away from the section,  which" was increasing its speed every  second. He managed to keep clear of  the racing cars until he got opposite  the depot at Glengarden, when the  second section smashed into the first.,  ' The first section, composed of, coal  cars,' was going at a high rate ot  speed .and none of its cars were jolted  off tho track. The forward cars, one  of the oil tanks of the railway section, was hurled sideways across the  track and the tank cars behind were  piled up the top of it in every way.  , The first crash caused" the oil in one  of the tanks to explode and ignite  and the terrific heat caused .the other  cars to explode" one after the other.  The .incline running from the depot  to Main street acted''as a sluice for  the burning oil and it poured into the  chief thoroughfare of tho village, setting fire to everything it touched.  Houses, fences, trees, shrubbery* and  barns .were reduced to ashes in an  incredibly   short  time..  Villagers awakened by the explosion rushed from the' oncoming  flood of blazing oil, carrying children  in their arms. Some risked their  lives to free, howes, cows and dogs  in outbuildings, but other unfortunate  animals could not be reached in' time  and were burned. JWithln flve minutes  after the first explosion tho flowing  river of oil had "reached, the Masonic  temple in the heart ofthe village and  10 minutes later that structure was  enveloped in flames.  -���������TEen--huildihg-after*-building*4g--  niled after the oil reached them,  and within half an hour- the area  of 400 feet square . was a mass of  flame. From the wrecked oil cars  the - oil also flowed down the incline  of the railway ..track, making a long  line of. fire that destroyed the ties  and twisted on bent rails.  Loss-$85,000 to $90,000.

London. March 2C.���The Chinese
minister. Sir Chieh Chen Lofenm Luh,
called at the foreign office yesterday
afternoon and urged the British government to bring pressure to bear in
order to prevent Russia from securing
tho necessary signatures to the Manchuria agreement. The government
was still in tho dark last nieht as to
whether the agreement would be
signed or allowed to lapse when the
ume expires which is today (March
62). The officials of the Japanese
legation are inclined to believe that
rtussia- will succeed in getting the
necessary signatures.
The situation is still moro complicated owing to the fact ascertained by
a representative of tho Associated
Press that there are 2 secret treaties,
ono of which is to bi sinned at St.
Peteresburg dealing with Russia's control of the military situation In Manchuria, and anotner to he s'.&ned at
Pekin dealing with her cull powers.
The Chinese appeals for sunport have
failed to produce any direct ri'-nonse
from Great Britain or .-.pparently
from any other power to St pptoi��-
Tmrg for Russia pprsisto.iu adheres
to her contention that thc secret agreements concerns no one but herself and China. On this ground
Great Britain's request for copies ot
the agreement was abruptly declined.
It is explained at the foreign office
hore that it would be dangerous and
useless breach of procedure to endeavor to enter upon expostulations
with Russia which would only be
based upon information supplied by
the Chinese. in other words the
copies of such treaties and alleged
modifications of them recently given
to the powers are worthless documents and will remain nucn until
Russia herself chooses 'to communicate the terms of the actual treaty
and modifications.

not intend to extend the franchise to
Kaffirs in thc Transvaal and Orange
River Colony before representative
government is granted. The conditions regarding assistance to burgher
farmers, fire arms, etc., are the
same as those in Kitchener's replies
to Botha.
Milner adds, that he agrees to the
above except as to desires for modi-
cation regarding British subjects in
Cape Colony and Natal in ihe Boer
army, who. if they returned to those
colonies, would not be able to be
dealt with under the laws of those
colonies passed to meet circumstances;   He adds:     -    . ( "
"While" I am willing to concede
much -in -order to strengthen' Botha
in influencing the people "'to' submit
to an amnesty ,for-rebels/is; in- his'
opinion, a'point*which' his majesty's
government cannot afford' to concede.
I think 'it would have a deplorable
effect upon Cape Colony' and Natal
to obtain peace by such a concession."
