Tlie   lollowing   are  exlrncts   taken  from (he  very   interesting nnd minis  ing   lei  H**    on    the   South   African  campaign  given by Trooper Lewis  of  Str.itlii'ni.n's   Horse in the Methodist  chinch lustMondiiy. Hecomiiipnced his  remarks by  describing   the  ditllcnlty  nf   preserving   discipline  aiming    the  free and independent  AVcBtein 'Canadians,   who formed   the   hulk  of  the  corps :     "As vou all know tlu; Strut h-  eona Horse were  not  regular   troops  and it was found rather hard to   bring  them  under military  discipline.      In  the Held any order that might, he given  was   iiiiqiu'btiouahly   obeyed,   bnt  in  camp   the   boys hud a habit of  asking  the why and wherefore.    In the rpgul.ir  ,*umy it is considered an utter   breach  of all military legulations for a trooper  to ask the reason why, but our  fellows  would argue the point.   As an instance  1 remember one day as we were pitching tents the Seigunt Major   came  up  to one   outfit   who   weie   putting   up  their tent, saying : -  'I want less talking here.'     'It  seems  to me lhat you  are doing most of the talking,' was the  reply he got.     Tin   supposed   to talk  he said, I'm paid for talking.'     "Well 1  [ guess you earn your money nil right.',  he was told.     He walked off laughing"  and the boys put up the tent in   their  own little way instead ot according to  military regulations.' *��������� Hardly'a   duy  passed but what some one wiis   up " be-  . . t*. _,_ .     _, ..   , ' ,.   ,.p  Jr-.   and  SHOES  Another big tot" of'- SLATER'S' just  in;-the newest thing in-TANS**.  1.

HUME  &C0  fore  the ^Colonel for some breach-- of  discipline.    The Colonel would growl,  give you a little advice-and dismiss the  case. * Colonel Steele was imbued-wilh  something of the same 'spirit  himself,  for soon after our arrival at Capetown,  we   were  reviewed   by "the    general'  commanding  at  that  point,  I foi get  his name.   He remarked to the. Colonel  'These men are rather dirty.'    .'Thoy.  did'utcome hereto shine buttons, they  came to work,' was" the answer.:   The  Hrst name we got from the Cape Tojvn  people was 'Dirty   Strathconas,'  after  a   while   they   changed   it   to   'Devil  Strathconas.;,    I,��������� want  to say here at  I the commencement, that with fi  very  few  exceptions,   the   best  of  feeling  existed between the hoys and   officers;  They would often laugh together, over  little incidents that had happened.' [' I  dont think that  a  better   man   than  Colonel Steele could have  been   found  for  the position.     It   was no joke lo'  take   men   like   we   were, bring them  under some kind of discipline and. stilly  retain their confidence. - Only   a man  who understood  Western   men   could  have  done  so. * " The   Biitish officer  could not understand us. "    He might  laugh at ns or he' might stand   on   hi������  dignity.     Anyhow it amounted to the  same thing.     One   of. the  boys met a  Brigade "Major   one   night  in  > Cape  Town.     (Officers  of'that rank in undressed  uniform   wear'   peaked  caps  with l ed band.)     The  Major   slopped  the lad with this question],    'Don't you  fellows ever  salute   anybody?'     The  reply   was  I'beg  your pardon Sir ; I  thought  you   belonged   to  the    Salvation Army."     At Urrtylinstaad one  of our fellows" hitched up a Cape ciii t,  in the.day time. ,drove  down "to   the  railway warehouse   where  provisions  "\^eTe"������toredrpl������*,ked'-oiit-soine���������officers  perquisites and  proceeded to load   his  cart. " While he w-is in the warehouse  lifter another arinful   the  sentry  on  guard c line up, and  was   looking into  the cart.     The Strathcona  put  on a  haughty'   official     manner.    '    'You  fellow, what are you doing there.   I've  hist too many  thi rigs'stolen   by  you  men.   Move away  from -there.'     The  sentry a private'of some line regiment  took the bluff, saluted and walked off.  We had a big feed in camp that   night  which should have gone to some officer  of the R. H. A. *'���������    -  "We    had   about   six    weeks*  at  Heidelberg! when   we   were   relieved  by  T. M. 1.   AVe marched south    to  Pardekop,  where Buller was massing  hia troops, 30,000 men. Roberts mWed  l-ia.nt Pretoria.    Aug'. 7   we  started.  Strathcona on the left Hank  and   advance guard. AVe left Par lekop about  3 k, Strathconas came under fire about  8 k.Jind  when we went into.camp at  Amesfort  at dark 'they    were"   still  peppering us.   There was quite a fight  that day all along the line.   We had  to  fight for  every lidge.   It was all  long range work as the Boers retreated  as we advanced.   Buller was 70, some  odd days reaching Pilgrims Rest/fight-  ing'.every step you might say."   -AVe  were now in a new country every day  therefore   we generally   had  fowl   or  pork for supper. The night we reached  Amesfort  nearly every  roan  had  a  goose  or chicken tied  on   bis saddle.  We cammed in Amesfort the next day  waiting for the transport to con'cen.  trate-agaln.   The morning   was-cold  with a thick heavy fo..r, under cover of  which the Boers had crept through tha  oufpnstssounding reville for us wilh  their Mausers. The S. A. L. H��������� whose'  turn   for  duty it was, soon put "them  ont of that.   The next town we struck  wns Ermelo. which we rushed-at 'a  gallop, the Boers pulling out of town at  | one  end   while  wo  went  in   at. the  .other  Ermelo,   for  we  had raced through a  ���������.and storm and a pra'uie flre.   AVe. had  about  an   inch  of sand all over everything, our eyes bloodshot,   it  was   no  wonder some of the people in town felt  a little timid.   Jumbo Edwaids   and  myself found ourselves at one end of  the town talking to the schoolmaster  who said he would like to take us into  his house for some tea only we wero  Canadians.    What he meant hy that  I don't know.   Him we lettand went  towards a house that, had its name on  the   front   gate.   "Angels   Retieat."  Jumbo says, this is  the   place for  us  Tom.    I said "Certainly Heavens our  home."    We found the angels out with  the door locked.     However   it didn't  take long to open it. It took the officers  nil the rent of the day  hunting np the  boys,  as   we   were  for  outpost  that  -night.   They were scattered all over  the   town   in every unoccupied house.  We had all kinds of things    to   eat  during onr short but pleasant stay at  Ermelo.   I   almost   think   the inhabitants were relieved when  we got the  oidors to march again.   I think myself  that   we will  always look  buck  with  pleasure to our stay at Ermelo."  "One stop on the road to Lydenburg  was   in   the   Crocodile   Valley.     AVe  stayed here  four days.    It is a pretty  little spot.   Buller has a great .eye for  scenery, that was why we stopped, so  long .1 guess.   One day   I saw Buller  sUnding nil alone on a ridge taking in  lhe scenery all around, so much occupied was he with the landscape that he  seemed   to   pav 'no   attention   to the.  shells that weie diopping around him.  Sometimes I think he may have been  sizing up the position, for ihat'mghtho  heliographedlo Robert's.   That same  day we ourselves were "in receipt ot  a  good uianv favors from the Boer guns.  We lay under a" kopje all  day  while  ttTey  shelled   it  with   guns.   For the  'fit st hour   iir so it- was too  interesting  for comfort but after a while you coulu  see   lots  ofthe Hoys asleep.' -"Do you  think  -you'll    stav.in   this country.  Gk'oige,''. linked  one  of  the ..boys  of  another..   "Naw, I dont.'-' says George,  "there is too many red-hot cnalstoves  ���������flying around hei e for me."   It was a  poor time to hoom immigration.', .  ���������'Being under shell liie is a kind of  strange position "until you get used to  it.   'If 'they  aie   Using melinite  the  fir *t thing you notice is puff of smoke,  iiuer a while you hear the report, then  in.the distance theie is a  faint whistling  sound," gradually growing louder  'anddouder, until, there, is   a rushing  sieech   nnd. a   lepoit.

One of these shells  came gently along and struck a nigger  'trtule d'-iver.   Justus it struck him   it  hurst." That nigger didn't leave even a  lotk of his hair to sho.v where he   had  been,    There are six of our hoys lying  on the hills yet, they * weie killed  the  next  day.'Four .of, them .were sur  lounded'\vhile "on outpost  duty,  refused sto surrender and totight as long  as they could hold   their  rifles.   Two  others   were   killed   while  trying    to  relieve them, lt cost fifteen Dutchmen  loget those boys.   We marched on to  Lvdenbnrg   without opposition   after,  Eelting out of Lhe valley.", AVe fought  our wav  over  the   much* spoken* oi  Lydenburg    hills,    past    the   Devils  Knuckles,"through Hells Gate, around  Spitz Kop, Sahic Mine, Pilgrims Resi,  Krngerspon and then back .to Lyden-  Inii g.   AY e   were about four weeks, in  the hills where no British troops could  ever get.   So sine of being able to keep  us   out had the  Boers  been   that we  were  continually finding' large stores  nf ammunition and  provisions. , which  had been cached there tor emergency.  There is lots of stuff we never found.  But thev had not reckoned on Bulller,  rhe-Hnesfc"general-inUUe_.wholearmy.  We were wilh him' for five months and  I never heard one of his, soldiers utter  anything but praise for Buller.   Any-,  one that knows the country he fought  over could" have nothing  but praise.  The  Boers, had   a    very  wholesome  lespectforhim too."  "A question I have often heen askpd  is '"What kind' of people are the  Boers?"-  They   are just ".the same as  RAILWAYS  How the Colony Operates Its  State Owned Railways for the  Benefit ofthe Public.  All but one or two of the railways  in New Zealand are owned and operated by the State. In 1808 the roads  earned 3 per ceht, over everything  but the interest charge on bonds, and  if the railroad horids were bearing 3  percent, interest, as would hn the  case if they wero refunded, the 10-  ceipts would show a small profit. The  report for 1900 shows the net earnings  fori 80S to have increased to 3.8. per  cent. _������  It should be borne in mind   that  the  State railways  In  New   Zealand   nro  not run for profit, but for the  benefit  of the people.     The. remuneration  of  the officers and nien   is  fixed  by  the  legislators.   On ihe  other  hand,   the  railroad men cannot strike, but   must  take their grievances,   first   to  their  superior officer,, then ,to   the  Appeal  Board, and, in thb last resort, to   Par  liament.   Politicians and office-seekers  have been completely shut  out  from I  the State railway system by the  creation   of a .Civil  Service .Board,   possessed of'unusual   powers.-    Railway  rates are fixed in New Zealand by  the  Minister for  Railways,   but  the . ultimate power over., them  is .vested  in  Parliament.   ,   ../ *, .- ...., .   , ,  .   The  State  railway, system   knows  .nothing of the doctrine that a shipper,  if the largest,-is entitled to the  lowest  rates-.mucti less ot the  theory  that' a  railroad manager has a, right to',give  such favoring  rates as  to make-the  shipper he 'prefers..the   largest,, even  though he should stiirt'as the. smallest.  Here, as in its land policy, the; Government   deliberately - acts    upon    the  principle of favoring  the  small'.man.  The settler who  brings, down, to - the  station his one   bale of  wool gets. as  low, a rate as tbe company that  sends  off thousands of.bales.   Such' a thing  -ts a rebate  or discrimination   is   unknown. . , ,-     j^,-s    ,        *   ;       ,   - ���������  ^"Children.ofJJ-������ primary, grades* are  carried free on the railroads, .'but, not  further tban the next school.  Children  who want to go further, and-* those > of  the, higher grades,   can   htive  season  tickets for any distance..up   to, sixty  miles, securing, for  instance,   a ��������� three  months' ticket., giving  transportation  to the extent of 120 miles  a  day,   for  $2.50 to $5,   according   to    the    age.  ���������Working people have the same rates  for holiday   trips as  do  the    young  school children.  The parcel system is singularly  cheap. A seven pound parcel can be  sent thirty miles for twelve cents, and  to any point in the colony by rail for  twenty-five cents. The rates on large  parcels are made relatively high in  order that the heavy business may go  by freight. Newspaper publishers can  send three pounds twenty-five miles  lor two cents, and the highest rate foi;  nny distance is six cents. A bundle of  newspapers weighing 112 pounds may  be sent to any point in the colony for  fifty cents. Books are taken to and  fro between libraries and the subscribers for one quarter the parcel  rates. ,  To help farmers market their products HftT-sir pounds ot fruits and  vegetables will betaken any distance  for twelve cents. The railroads bring  fie farmers lime to warm their Boil  free of charge, and a stallion, brood  nwe, ram, shepherd dog, or any  other  domestic   animal   desired  breeding purposes Is carried free.  foi  RUMORED C.P.R.

He went'out in the afternoon,'  Bioletta followed him out in the evening.'go-  ing on" foot, and .taking  a  six-shooter  with him.

GROGAN,  Editor.  ALF.X. LUCAS*.  Travelling Agent.  Saturday,  April -20th. 1001.  TO   THE    RAILWAY'MEN  OF WESTERN CANADA'.  For  the  successful'  inception  and   carrying out  of our project  of   conducting    a    semi-weekly  journal specially devoted to your  ^.interests it is obvious   that  your  active    cooperation*   is' a-chief  requisite.   The main factor ofthe  future success of the Herald ..as  a Railway Mens' Journal' will-be  the  continuous   presentation  of  the   local   and    personal    news,  relating to the great brotherhood  of railroad employes'throughout  rhe districts,   which   we  propose  to cover.    The  p'nly'way, which  we can obtain this class of' news  is through -the assistance of -railway   men themselves.' ;RaiIroad  men   form/a community of their  own, in   which "much "goes on-of  interest a'nd   importance to-them-  " selves,     which     the'     ordinary  -��������� newspaper   never  gets hold ��������� of.  This   is the kind of items, which  it will be our aim to supply and  we   look  to"you   to further this,  object.   We want correspondents  at every railway, point in. British-  Columbia ' and     Alberta..   The  items  furnished by  them will be  .perused   with   interest  by   their  . comrades of the   road   over   the  whole railway   system   of   these  " two provinces.      By   furnishnig  them you will help to   build 'up  an   organ   of   your -own,   with  -weight  and   influence.'to   urge,  your   requirements    and    voice  your sentiments.    We feel" sure  that every thinking railway  man  will appricate the power,   while  the existance   of   an . influential  journal devoted to their'interests,  will give to railway    men -as.a  body and will   do   his'-best   to  assist it in the manner above   indicated.    What we want  is   the  news, the whole news and ' nothing but the news and we  appeal  to you to aid us in the successful  conduct    of    our     project     by  furnishing it with regularity, and  despatch.  THE BEST WAY   OUT.  The strides"which the policy of  government ownership of railways has  made !n the minds of the people wits  well exemplified in the experience met  with last week hy the circulators of a  petition in its favor among the residents of Vancouver. It was signed  hy 1100 names of citizens in all walks  of .life. One circulator reported 050  signatures out of TOO voters visited and  among those who refused only one  expressel himself as opposed to the  principle'of tbe petition. Another  secured ISO names in one day without  encounteritiK any refusal?. This is a  shewing, which indicates very clearly  the hold which the policy has taken on  the puhlic imagination, particularly as  there is but little doubt that the same  results could be duplicated in every  city, settlement and village in the  province.  Aa a. specific example the petition  mentioned the Coast-Kootenay line as  one which could be built with the aid  of the Dominion - bonus "without  adding to the provincial taxation for  several years to come." It is of course  this particular road, the disposition  of which is causing so much searching  of heart at Victoria. On the one side  is Jim Hill offering competition but  demanding a "bonus, on the ottier is  theC. P. K. modestly disclaiming any  financial assistance but holding out no  prospect of competition. - The fact  that the' popular demand is for  competition is offset by tbe equally  obvious fact that the popular verdict  is against any further extension of the  bonus system. "Do you mean to deliver British Columbia, bonnd hand  and foot to the C. P. R.?" angrily  demand the supporters of Mr. Hill  and competition,   "Do you ..intend to  put ��������� another  couple of  millions   of a  rake oil into the   pockets   of  charter  monger., and railway monopolist's ?" is  the indignant response of the opponents   of the   bonus  policy.'   There  is  nothing very renmrkable that under  the circumstances the government at  Victoria!   bombarded  with    petitions  and counter-petitions, resolutions and  counter-resolutions from every corner  ofthe province,   find   the question  a  difficult one to decide.  "The oljy.i.qiis and certainly the most  politic    course   for   the  government,  would seem; to he to take the   bull by  the horns and build the road by themselves  or  if   they   could    effect   it,  conjointly with the Dominion government.    Jtis hard to   see  why a   road  which such very practical 1 ail way men  as   President Shaughnessy and J. J.  Hill are competing with one another  for the privilege of building,  should  not prove a success in the hands of the  government.   We may he quite sure  that'they   are not solely impelled by  motives of pure philanthropy in  figuring on  the   construction   of  the line.  There i must  be   dividends  in   sight  somewhere  and  in   our  opinion   the  government would be fully justified in  trusting    to the   judgement  of  such  skilled experts in   these  matters   and  indecidingto   divert these    expected  profits  into   the provincial   treasury.  At  the same time  the  most  indent  supporterof the policy of government  ownership cannot blind himself to the  fact-Chat neither in this province nor  in'thc Dominion of Canada have we at  present   devised  any  machinery  for  keeping government owned railways,  if operated by the government, out of  the  hands  of  the politicians.    It is a  most regrettable fuct, but a  fact it   is  all the same, that  the   average   Cana-  .diftn   . shrinks ���������   from    placing    the  enormous patronage, which the operation of our  railways   by  the   government would imply, in the hands of the  men,.--whom  he,* or  at all evfents the  majority   ot his fellow  countrymen,-  elect .andsometimes   elect  time   and  ���������time again, to direct the affairs of the  Dominion and  its various  provinces.  Some adequate method of keeping, the  railways out of politics will have to be  in working order before the operation  of the lines by the government can be  safely attempted.  , But,the provincial government can  if they choose profitably construct  and'own the Coast���������Kootenay.'railway  without operating it, retaining-at the  satne'time full control-over the' freight  . . *-*  and - passenger .rates arid all ��������� such  matters' relating to the interest and  convenience of the people." Having  built the line" they could for instance  lease it to'the highest bidder and make  such terms and conditions in the lease  as wquld ensure a practical public  control of the road. lt seems* that  this would be the most adequate  course to pursue out of the 'difficulty.  Tliey .-would not give away a big sum  of the ; people's .money in order, to  secure a competing* road, which, ' as  has been known to be the case not once  nor twice but scores of times in the  history of railway construction on  this continent, might fail to compete.  But they, would secure all the results  which could possibly arise from the  most active competition by having in  their hands the making of a lease of  the people's property, which would be  a security andguarantte of tne people's  rights. - Ib may be noted as a striking  example of the validity of our contention that after having secured at  the co'st'of a threatened popular rising' what they flattered themselves  was railroad competition, the government of Manitoba have recently found  themselves compelled, in order to  attain the reductions of rates desired  by .the* people of the province, to  practically adopt the course outlined  above. They have hart to lease  the very road, which was to give them  competition' and -with the avowed  object of avoiding the political evils .of  government operation, have re-leased  it* to another line, safeguarding (ne  people's interests by the conditions of  the'lease. The Herald believes that  the British Columbia government  would be pursuing a wise, ^sbund and  politic course with. regard to this  vexed matter of the Coast���������Kootenay  railwav, by'*followin  the   lead  bv their confreres of Manitoba.  given  SUGGESTED MINING       <-  LEGISLATION  So many proposed niiiendmcntK to  the Mineriiil Act, have been showered  upon the provincial government' that  the chances are that the whole subject  will lx.> deferred till the next hi'ssion of  the house to admit of a thorough in-  v.i-tigalion into the conditions of  metalliferous*, ruining in the provinci*.  This heing tin* eai** the I.Kn.w.i.. will  not, lit* accussfd of an attempt to add  to the perplexities of the -Minister of  Mines, caused by his present plethora  of good advice, if it ventures to throw  out the following suggestions fni*  remodelling the relations financial and  otherwise existing between the prospectors and minors on the one hand  and the government on the other, fn  the first place we would propose to  abolish one useless piece of farce in  present Minerel Act, the annual  liundred dollars worth of ,'iHsesHment  work called for for fivo years beforo  the'claim can be crown granted. It  is a notorious fact that in nine cases  out of ten this work is not really done  at all a'nd the regulation entirely f,iil������  of its object, which is to get claims  developed, for the reason that there is.  no check on the claim ownersprovided  or pi'ovidable. Jn lieu of thi.s assessment work we would provide that  every owner of aclaim should annually  pay to the government the sum of ten  dollars "and in addition perform personally or by proxy fifteen dollars  worth of work  oa  trails- within  the  district in which he is interested under  the supervision'ofthe' gold   commissioner.    That is to'say   the   gold . commissioner in arranging  his work   for  the year   would   call   on   each   claim  owner within the particular recording  district for five days work   on   in  default the sum of fifteen dollars.     This  should be done for five years,   at   the  conclusion of which period  thc owner  would produce his   receipts   for   cash  and labor and' proceed   to   apply   for  crown grant.     ln  " default ��������� of    the  annual payment of the ten dollars cash  and fifteen .dollars worth of   labor, or  the same amount in money, the claim  should lapse to the government, which  should be empowered to dispose of it,  after   due   advertisement,   either   by  tender or  at  auction   at   the     upset  price ollthe unpaid taxes, whichs hould  not   be allowed  to accumulate  over  one year.   The purchaser would  then  assume all the conditions of the' holding binding on the original-owner.    In  this way the practises, of    relocation  and over staking would' be   abolished  and the   useless   annual     assessment  exchanged for work, which  would   be  at once an 'advantage   to   the   miner  and the district and at the same   time  be sure to be really performed.  Once crown gran ted at the expiration  of'five years or for that matter at any  time within the five year period, if the  owner considered it to his advantage  to apply for it and pay down the  balance of his annual twenty five  dollars in a lump sum, the claim  should be subject to a land tux, the  obnoxious royalty on the output being  at the same time rescinded. lt is  claimed in favor of the royalty that it  is easily assessed and collected. As a  matter of fact it is no more easily-  collected than any other tax and no  more easily assessed than a land tax  would he, if the following method,  which is at this day in vogue in ��������� other  mining countries was adopted, Make  the owner his own assessor subject to  a condition that anyone can buy his  claini at a twenty per cent advance -on  the last assessed value. The--assessment would come pretty near the  right value and failure to furnish it or  to pay the taxes within a certain date  should be made to mean the cancelling of the grant and the reversion of  the property to the crown. There  would be no difficulty at aU.aboutJt.  Th'e'Herald claims Unit if this . plan  were- adopted the  prospectors -would  be benefitted by having three fifths of  their  annual; fees for  the'first, five  yeurs spent right in theii'.own /district  on trails to open itupand   by- having  the present useless  annual assessment  changed for a practical and  beneficial  employment of their money or ��������� labor.  They would further be   benefitted   by,  the extinction of claim jumping, which  practice would-find no ,i'oom   for  exercise    under   the   proposed    amend  ment.   The government would benefit  by doing   away ��������� with   all - chance  of  evasion of  the   conditions of  holding  claims such as the practice  of  relocation now affords.     Every claim would  either furnish its annual quota of  cash  and labor to' the province or else lapse  to the crown.   The mine owners would  benefit by the  exchange of the  obnoxious and inequable  two per  cent  royalty on the output for a tax, which  would   fall  on   all    owners    without  exception but yet would be so graded  as to weigh lightest on properties   the  least able to bear the   burden   of   taxation,    instead   of    heaviest  as   this  iniquitous royalty does.    Mine owners  have no objection to bearing their  full  share of taxation.    They recognize the  fact that on the   mining   industry,  as  the chief industry of the province, the  burden   of   furnishing   the   necessary  revenue for the   development  of   thi9  new country must  inevitably   fall but  they do object to being   compelled   to  pay an unscientific and inequable tax,  such as this royalty simply  because   a  careless   legislature   finds  it easy   of  assessment and is   told   it   is easy   of  collection.     It was as a matter of fact  enacted  before   you   could   say  Jack  Robinson   and    without  any   consideration as to whether it   was   easy   or  "difficult of assessment-or collectTon'or"  anything   else   by ,a  legislature  profoundly   convinced   that it must beat  all events dead easy for such Croesusses,  as    Kootenay     mine    owners      are  popularly supposed to be in the   longitude of Victoria, to  pay  almost anything which   the  finance   minister of  the day was   minded   to   demand   of  them.    There seems to be no adequate  reason why   the   government  should  continue   to  adhere   to  u-selesa.    impracticable or obnoxious conditions of  mineral   claim   'Pniir_p,    when ���������  more  practical   and   popular    method")  are  open to them and   the , Hkhai.d   feelR  convinced that the scheme  outlined in  the ahove article would  be   welcomed  by both prospectors and  mine   owners  if crystallized into legislation.  A CH0STLY HAND  Engineer Tupper Declares His  Train Was Saved by a Spirit  Hand.  (By Arthur Jnnu's Pegley)  Tom Tupper used to run   an  engine  on the Denver & Kip Grande   between  Tronton    and    Durango,.^the .-Whole  length of the  division  through.mountain cuttings and   precipitous gorges,  Tupper   held   the   throttle  on  old 39  until   something  happened that    incapacitated him���������at least so far as concerned his  usefulness  on   an  engine.  He is  it   comparatively, young- man.  Thero  are many  older engineers thnn  he  iu   the  service,  but   Tupper   will  never drive an engine again.     He lost  his nerve on the Ironton and Durango  run eight years ago this spring.   Sometimes he walks  to   the  round   houses  and   looks  over  the engines,   hut he  can't ride one of them.   The minute he  attempts it his  hands   hegm shaking  like those of a man with palsy, but he  is all right so long as he keeps   his feet  on the ground.     The  specialists  say  that Tom's trouble  is  neuraesthenic,  meaning that his horror of an   engine  implies no tangible physical ailment���������  merely a deranged  condition of the  nervous system, due to shock.   Tupper  doesn't believe the specialists, because  his nerves are all right anywhere  else  hub in an engine cab.     He owns np to  the nervous shock, though,  and tells  the  stony  in   simple  language   that  renders it none the less thrilling.  "I'm not superstitious," said Tupper'  to me, "but this happened on a Fiiday  night. " I was living with my wife and  two little girls at. Ironton. My run  was from Ironton to Durango. It was  a dirty piece of road���������all trestles and  cuts arid mountain passes, with grades  that would make a man open his ��������� eyes  in this section. 1 had just had supper  one evening, and. was getting ready  to go ont when Mrs.'lliley.-the wife of  my old fireman; Jack Riley���������he*8 dead,  God rest his soul���������called at the house  and said Jack was down with typhoid  fever. . He had come in sick on our last  run, .but I hoped he'd'be all right after  a rest. With the typhoid ��������� he had  pneumonia, and,'as everybody knows,  that is a hard combination.  - .'.'Jack's wife was in a terrible* state  of mind, poor womiin, and I didn't feel  much better'^than' she'.did-over it.  Riley had .-fired six years for me, and  he knew the road.-as well ; as" if He'd  built it.,,, He., knew 'cld.;39, too, and  there's a'lof in knowing an engine.;' I  hated to go out with a new fireman,  hut there was no help for it. At 8:40  I pulled ont, feeling sad at heart' over  poor'Jack- and very doubtful about my  substitute. - The < latter's name was  Deyine; a good, honest' lad,' but inexperienced. He'd been a wiper'there'  for three years. It- was a bad night  with a heavv gale blowing aud flurrier  of snow.-' Before we got to Summit 1  saw that the new man - was a handy  fellow, and would probably get 'along  all right,'but-I was ^bothered about  Jack. You see, the Dr. said that'he  might not live until morning, and I'd  have given anything to know how he  was getting on.  - "The storm seemed to get worse  after we passed Summit, and the snow  turned to a pretty heavy rain.- I  couldn't see far ahead, and at that  time of the year there was a good deal  of danger from washouts or landslides.  We were humming along at a good  lively '.lip when I turned round - and  stepped toward the tender. Devine  was up above shooting coal down;  " 'Keep her humping, for the grade-!'  1 yelled to him, and just .then'the  strangest thing you -ever heard of  occurred. Old 39 reversed, and the  sand stopped her pretty near dead  short. I turned quick as a flash and  started for the lever, but if I never  draw another breath there stood Jack  Riley, his face white as a sheet and  pointing ahead with one hand while  he hung.on with the other.  "For an instant I waa dazed* Then  I sprang ab him and threw -both  arms  I   yelled���������  made   me  night,'and   he  started   miimbliii'  his  prayers.     .-     ���������  " 'But did yon see   hint?'  the awfulness of the   thing  creep all over.  '��������� 'I seen ul', he said. ��������� 'Man, Hear,  why couldn't I sue ill?    Am llilind?  '' Well, we got on the engine and  backed her up to Silverton. They sent  out a work tin in that cleat ed that  track in under two hours. It wns 9:41  when Riley stopped her. We stinted  out'from Silverton to finish the run at  11:20. When we neatert that place  again I swear it was all 1 could do to  stuy on the engine. Devine was worse  off than I was. His hands shook, and  his face shone white thiough the coal  dust.  "'For the love of heaven,' says he,  'pull her wide open and get by, will ye  not, Tom?'  '��������� 'Go easy, lad,' I 'said. 'We've a  clear track now.'   % *  "When we went by the spot my  hair stood straight as barbed wire, and  I just lis much as* anything expected  to see lliley board her again, but he  didn't. We ran through to Durango  without further trouble, arriving three  hours late, -  " 'What have you fellows been doing?' began the station agent, as we  pulled up. 'Here's it message for you,  Tom, he said. *Poor Jack' Riley is  dead; it's a wire from his wife.' Here'6  tlie way that menage read:  " 'Thomas Tupper, Durango:' Jack  died at 9:44���������Clara.' "  "No. I'm not superstitious, hut I've  gob eyes to si.*e with, haven't I? Old.39  stopped and somebody gave her sand  at.9:44 to the tick. " I saw Riley throw  her, and my fir'emijth saw him as plain  as I did. Oh, I'm not. trying to explain. Leave tbat to the fellows wlio  know so much.' With me, anything  that I see myself goes.

During the past few days an experiment ' in the shipment, of California  fruit by way of the Great'Northern  Ry. has been cart ied out which was  watched with a good deal of interest  by shippers and railway men. The  shipment consisted of" 5500 bores of  oranges, weighing 72 lbs. each. It was*  loaded into a vessel at lledondo. one of  the seaports near Los Angeles, wheie'  it was transferred to one of the regular  steamers running-between -San Francisco-, and-' Seattle. At ..Seattle the.  shipment was transfermTto a freight  train of the.Great'Northern Ry.,-made  up of 14 carloads of oranges and* one  carload of canned salmon. This .train  left Seattle on the afternoon of Maich'  26 and arrived in St. Paul March 29, at  11 a. m., the actual time on the road  being 68 hours, or an average, for the  1823 miles,"of 20.8 miles per hour. The  529. miles from Mi not, N. D., to St.  Paul was covered at an average speed  of 30,2 miles an hour. The purpose of.  the experiment was partly to test the  time required to ship via the water and  rail route to the northward and also to  observe the condition of the fruit .sent  over the cooler route.���������Railway Engineering Review. .' , ..

John Houston is out with 11 brand  new policy in the railway line. He  hu9 circuliited paniphIets*oiitlinin*_r the  scheme to this newspaper men and politicians of the province and a recent  Trihune contains a long article on the  topic. Houston figures that there are  225,000,000 acres of land in the province and he advocates issuing 2T-.0Q0.-  (XX) of land script at SI nn acre, thereby  putting the province in possession of a  fund sufficient to build a. thousand  miles of railway. With this'mileaKe  he proposes to open thc Yellowhead  and adjacent territories. The land  script, according to jthe scheme outlined, would cover tiniher, mineral,  agricultural and other rights and  would give the possessor sole and  complete title to whatever ground he  located. Tt is also proposed to discontinue all other methods of selling  government land and make thin the  only way in which wild land could be  acquired by purchase. Locations  would be taxable just as soon ns made  and crown grants would have to be  taken out within a certain stipulated  time,  around him to hold him. -My-"flrst  thought was that the man had escaped  from his house in delirium and secreted himself in{,the tender before, we  started, but he hadn't.

And I  scarcely know which of aa looked  or felt happiest���������the famous surgeon  in tbe triumph ot hia skill, my sweet  girl friend for tho renewed slow ot  health, or I with thankfulness at seeing her reBtortd.  I think I suggested that the doctor  might h mself keep the bouquet 1  had Brought, it hn were content with  a sentiment at second hand. I thought  a, change came over hia. face. He  smiled with quieter gravity, and to  my surprise declined the offering  without thanks.   He acted toward me.  - i faney. in much the same fashion as  .   the*surgeon to an.asalstast, who had  held*'out the wromr* instrument. ..at a  critical moment. I was nettled. In  the embarrassment of the moment. I  allowed my eyo to rove impolitely  among the furnishings and appliances  ot that chamber of science, while the  little patient just -discharged was  again making her grateful adieu.  "What a pretty Bower pot!" I-said  l.y way of forgetting my own rejected  token. It was one of tho finest  pieces of favrllo glass I had ever  seen. And steppng toward the window to admire lt more closely, the  rich, deep dolors smote by th* morning sun drew attention by contrast  to tbe eostents of dull, brown earth,  and the dried, shrlveled-up stump  ot what had long ago been some  growing shrub.  "Yes."  said the doctor,  aa  if    to  ntbne tor  a discourtesy,  "and it  Is  'far too handsome-to be so useless���������  would  you  not my?    But it has a  strange history.   Shall I tell you?"  And then he told me this story, a  romance in which he figured aa residuary legatee: ,  .   He had been on the vleltisg staff of  tho hospital ot St-M. and his duties  ' had  taken  him  almost' daily" to the  - 'morgue.' .Early one morning .in the  .-spring of-189���������-Or:-'Burton w-aa aoti*-  "fled by telephone of a most mysterious case, a suicide who had destroyed  all traces ot his ideality and had died  -apparently of same sleepy poison in  a small room In an obscure hotel,  fhe-suicide had. registered under _ a  same doubtless assumed for'tbe pnr-  Kose of keeping sorrow from any one  wbo after all mighty have loved him  'iv little. The name'waa "John .Par-,  ringtori."-    '���������������������������'''������������������"     * -" t   / 7~'--''*"'''.'  *-Many-"bad viewed the' body'and  turned   away   -shaking'  their beads.  ��������� ���������'Among .the  visitors'rat' the''morgue  was''a..'young woman who came alone  - in a. private carriage. . Her behavlos  tgas most extraordinary. She glanc-  ea about "the ' bare walls with "a  shudder,, then up at the .high and  narrow ^windows tn tho" room-where  the autopsies were performed. One  Took' at -the. set but. still handsome  features of the suicide was enough.  She grasped the 'right band as if  to 'wish him GodBpeed, and" then,  finding"the wrist tied tightly to.the  other under the "sleeves i ot - the  shroud, drew quickly away at the  sickening realization of what lt means  tcJ die alone in such a way.  She did not cry out or Bob; her  lips quivered slightly. Still the  morfnie   keeper   'thought    it  strange  "��������� when she - passed out repeating that  one word bo" often , spoken at the  eKits of This place-r-a subdued ^"No."  . There wasia peculiar shade of sadness in the woman's tone, as if she  spoke both for thc/present and the  past.  It was afternoon beforo Dr. Burton  found it possible' to bs present, and  " tfie post mortem examination was delayed until hia snivel. In the meantime an "unprecedented thing had occurred. The same carriage which  had brought a mysterious gentle  "   soman to tha morgue- returned to  ' taose silent gates -wtihout her. The  footman opened'tho door and .took  from tbe floor ot tho cartage a mag-  , aificent 'flower pot-  in  which .there  * grew a tall 'sedge-like grass, having  tc number of buds and one perfect  white flower. Thero was a card in  k fine, small"hand which duplicated  the'-designation ofs the tag on the  wrist of the suicide.  "Well,"-here's a-fine mystery,    said  the morgue keeper.   "I can't see what  ,  good  a flower pot will, do him,  you can leave It for him  if. you  to. -First flowers ever, sent to  ' place, ��������� I can-tell you,, and  - acntvem���������sh������*a -is.a-lady."

And I wish I were dead, right  hero and now. Doctor," he whispered, drawing closer and 'snaking  hands, "let it alone���������that plant grew  in hell."  For several days afterward Dr.  Burton wondered at this denunciation  of an emblem, an act, a friend, all  of which certainly seemed worthy ot  any human being's affection, notwithstanding tho unexplained clrcum-*  sauces of the case.  No one waa permitted to touch the  flower sent to "John Farrlngton.". It  remained on the high window ledge  and bloomed in the Southern sunshine  for the ��������� dead who had no graves. It  came to bo hold in a certain sacred  awe by the attendants, and even" by  undertakers, doctors, of course, being  without the question of-superstition;  But nothing can describe the amazement caused by the subsequent miracles accredited to the morgue flower.  Three othor persons brought to the  morguo from as many different hospitals, all of whom had been pronounced dead by the respective house  surgeons, came to life with faces upturned toward the magic flowering  shrub.  An Investigation by the county  medical society ot this "shocking  carelessness" Jn the hospitals reveal-  d the fact that every one of ,-the  patients who "got well in the  morgue" had, in one way or another,  been received as cases of attempted  suicide. All had insisted on "dying,  even when arraigned in court charged  with thc technical offence of attempted self destruction.  Thus the morgue flower compelled  recognition���������even of the physicians���������  for its good luck, if not for 'some  healing properties unknown in their  medical text books.  Dr. Burton at length decided to  take the thing home and tfive it a  place in hia -sanitarium,��������� where"; it  would cheer his private - patients' and  inspire confidence through the-Very  longing for health*. , ..'.'.-.."-,  Now and then, passing through'".the  ward, he would stop to pluck one- of  the white bloesoms and tOBS it upon  tbe cot from .whence a wan fact'  might wateb his movements appeal-.  in'gly. ���������- Tho i weakest patient - 'would  clutch the fragile gift and inhale-its  delicate perfume with -a sligh, rather  than' a breath; and 'say: .. -,_ ���������  Oh,- how kood 'is life!

Personal Life ot Abdul Hamid, the  Monarch Who Never Pays  and Always Owes.  London News: Tho secrets of an  Oriental despot ara usually more  worthy of the name than political se-  rets as western peoples understand  tie term. Under governments more  or less popular an inkling of what is  going on behind the scenes is pretty  sure to get about; and. indeed, the  backstairs dealings of those in power  are usually open and palbable  enough. But in countries where all  government is ono huce conspiracy  of a few against the interests of the  subject, another state ot things prevails. All who have a foot in the  house of power are in the plot, and  {he merest love of life will keep them  standing shoulder to shoulder, from  the crowned king down to the smallest footboy in the palace. We are  some centuries past the. time when,  a man of the royal household was  everybody's enemy, and a progress of  Henry I'lantagenet was more dreaded  than the descent-of a gang of outlaws. But in the Bast 'that time continues, and when the Shah of Per*  sia comes to England he leaves a  trail ot beggared people on his way to  the seaport. So the peoplo ot tho  palace must always stand or fall together, and secrecy as to what goes  on under the shadow of the throne is  not hard to maintain.  Some interest, therefore, attaches  to a-little work about te be issued  in Paris under the title of "Abdul  Hamid II." ' We have .reasons for bo-  litevlng its stateemnts' to be authentic, and we venture to think some ot  them may interest English readers.  The Sultan ot Turkey and his surrounding have become perforce a  little "westernized", on the surface.  The ladies .'of the palace make use of  Parisian dress materials; -'the commander ot the Faithful buyB the  latest invented guns for the armory  ot the Ylldiz Klosque. But beneath  the.skin there is no more ot civilization, an we understan it than ever  there was. The royal Income, for  example, which Is.one of the largest  in Europe'. - is collected " by Oriental  methods and subject to Oriental stl-  ferings. "Let them steal so long as  they serve me," Ib tho imperial motto, and so long as the.minister or  courtier does not- make himself so  obtrusively rich as to Invite the jeal--  ous scrutiny of the ruler, he is free  to make his profit-from, either public  or. private, purse-  The personal-life of* Abdul Hamid,  however. Is" one.of'the-most striking  illustrations of i this 'phenomenon ot-a-  lighUveneer of western habit overlaying a score of .things.totally -Oriental.-  A tyranny is 'the"-, natural svstein'* of  polity, in the. Eastland'in Turkey'.lt  is not dissembled, b'ut ' the personal  existence of the tyrant Is 'passed In  doing Eastern things in a western  way. Among the most important of  the Sultan's labors is the'hearing ot  reports ot his spies in all parts of  Europe, but -newspaper.cuttings are  the form, of'information with which  ho most-likes them-to furnish him  His staff of secretaries . is large  enough for the most nard worked and  dovoted guardian ot the* State, but  they are - principally employed-s-and  tncesasntly, too���������with the private  concerns, whims, suspicions and fancies ot their.master.. Tireless, as.his  activity is. and "careful as he is of  each moment of time, -very - little of  his energy is directed toward national  affairs, and public ouainess is nowhere more delayed and neglected  than under this buBy ruler.  Concerts, plays and kinematograph  entertainments   are   favorite   means  withthe Sultan-of-dispelling the cares  of a throne,'as they are with most  crowned heads.     The services "ol': his  own dramatic   and "operatic   troupes  are'often In reuqest, and any company that may be - visiting Constantinople    is    usually  comamnded  ' to  favor- him  with .a  private  performance       But    it is characteristic    of  thc  eastern  notion of  royal  dignity  that all-mention, of," these entertainments is. strictly forbidden    in   the  Turkish press, and it Is rarely that  any   one  outside  the  family   of  the  Sultan is "invited    to' witness them.  And, surounded ns Abdul Hamid is,  with every kind of object of use and  ���������luxury that   Europe can   supply, he  passes among them an existence harassed by eevry kind of suspicion and  fear that could  assail a potenate of  rthe'Arabian Nights.'    The   elaborate  ceremony ot precaution,   with   whicn  ���������his'meals'are prepared engage the at-  'tontion of the highest and'most trust*  led of his' officials.      Tho cooking is  done .in a ." separate ..and -.strongly  'gi_arded-chamber,=andl_l0^chief does  Everything  beneath   tho ,eye   of   tho  Sultan's     confidential     servant.     A  solemn procession' conveys   the food  and water to the salle a manger  the  carafe  beinB  sealed,  and  the  dishes  covered  with  cloths  which  are  also  sealed upon them. These' precautions  against poison by  no  means satisfy  the Sultan.'    At any moment he may  comamnd the official   who ovcrlookes  tho cookery to taste a dish   and a  number of pet animals are kept, to  wlillch the first "morsels aro given by  the* royal'hand.     In his tastes thc  Commander ot the Faithful  Is prudently- abstemious.      No man  could  watch his health more closely In this  respect,  and to put on flesh  Is the  flream ot his existence.     But a naan  so much a victim-to nervous worry  can hardly look to   get   fat and to  whatever  fooa  Abdul  Hamid  treats  himself,  his    frame    is    continually  shrunken and debilitated. ,  In  the  taste  for  tobacco ��������� on   the  other hand, he practices   no moderation; this Is a craving strong-r than  any U3te for food, and the clsarfttte  that is between his lips from morning  till night can do little to irnwove a  ���������nervous   system already shattered by  anxieties.      In the matter of liquor,  tho Sultan  is  no  strict .Mi**-<-!:>mnn.  and pleads" his health ai an  excuse  for the  indulgence  in  an  occasional  glass of champ?gne.     It is -said that  he habitually  drinks;* some    cordial  before   receiving    'ambassadors, and  visitors, in order to give a temporary  briliance to his eyes and complexion;  for the "Sick Man" canot bear-to be  thought an Invalid; and has never yet  allowed his severest attacks,ot illness  to  be   publicly   announced.   He  even  goes 60 far as to doctor himself for  most of his ailment...  - The'pitiable  Btate ot his nerves makes thp night a  recurring terror  to  him.      He fears  dirkness like a child, and the whole  'of the  apartments occupied by  him.  with the surounding gardens arc bril-  llantl**- lit up from  the moment  the  light  fallH.      Silence, too.  Ir terrible  ������*-i him.  ind  he ran  onlv sleep with  th*������   nnlop   ot    h'p   jrunrd     tramnlng  before the pain re in his er.rs.     From  his Blceo be will start to summon 'an  Internreter for a dream, or to go out  and sweep the' horizon   with strong  glasses.      Usually he    is sent    with  difficulty   to   fsleeo   by   Uie    reading'  aloud   ot  his   brother  or  a  favorite  servant.     Next to the   report*? of his  spies, the literature that appeals most  strongly to his taste is the sensational novel, and the more horror there  ia to stimulate his taste, the better  is he pleased. It is only characteristic of him that the only sport in  which he excels is rifle and pistol  practice; at this he could show tho  way to most men.  These are a tew of the details regarding the life of Abdul Hamid  which we have gathered from the  work ot Adosaides Bey. He has no  cause to love the Sultan, whose persecution of the young Turks drove  him from his-country; but we believe  his account to be faithful, and we  have selected only such matter as  seemed unlikely to be tinged by prejudice-  o  GIRLS SOLD  They Objected to Their New Masters.  Chicago, April 14.���������A special to the  Tribune from Kankaee, Ills., says:  The sale of two girls, members of a  gypsy band, at Momence, this county, yesterday brought on a riot' that  for a time threatened serious results.  So angry were the citizens over the  traffic that a mob was formed which  drove the gypiy band from town.  The deal which caused' all tho  trouble was the Bale ot Juanlta Cos-  tello and Margot Czech, 16'and 17  years old, by their guardian, Nicholas  Karoptkln, a Russian, to a Brazilian,  also a member of the band, the prico  paid being |800.  The girls refused to recognize the  sale and threatened their prospective  master. The Brazilian then swore  out a wararnt'for Karoptkln.-charging the obtaining money by false pretences.  A squad of police was found necessary to secure the Russian, who drew  a revolver on the officers.
