 DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE  DOLLARS A YEAR  . WEEKLY EDITION  BY MAIL  TWO  DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR  NELSON:  FRIDAY MORNING  MAY IL  J900.  PRICE FIVE  CENTS  THE WONDERFUL NEW SHELL  Senate iri Secret Session.  Washington", May 10.���Again today tiie senate discussed iu secret  session tiie mysterious projectile  "with which tho navy department  lias been experimenting*-* on armor  plate. The publication in this  morning's papers of the details of  tlio secret session held yesterday.  In the course of whicli senator Till-  ;��� man laid before the senate informa-  '_ tion he had received atthe naval  I department concerning the armor-  \ piercing projectile that had played  ; such havoc with the best armor  I tested at the government proving  >\/ground at Indian Head convinced  many senators of the futility of attempting by secret sessions to keep  information from the public. However, while senator Tillman Avas explaining to the senate today what  he desired to accomplish by the  secret session yesterday, another  secret session was moved, the senate  preferred to hear the South Carolina  ��� ������*���i-i*��-i*i i  eign representatives in that capital  have jointly notified president  Kruger that ho will be held personally responsible by their governments for the safety of the Johan-  nesbm'g mines, it can be stated that  the United States representative,  consul Adolbert Hay, did not join  in the representation if any such  were made. The department of  state will adhere to its uniform  policy in such matters, of acting  singly. It may be that its line of  action will parallel that taken by  tiie powers jointly, but it will not  be in any degree affected thereby.  ROMAN CATHOLIC LEGATION  News of-the Church.  I  senators explanation behind closed  doors.  After the galleries had been  cleared, senator Tillman reiterated  substantially the statement concerning the Indian Head tests of  armor plate which he had- made  yesterday. He pointed out the  effectiveness of ther projectile,  tipped with a point of soft steel,  against the armor tested, and used  1 hat fact as au argument against  the payment by the government of  what he ^termed "monopolistic  piice'sfor armor." He dwelt upon  the vulnerability of the best known  armor���including the Krupp armor  ���against the  projectile.      He. ar-  1,5 raigned the navy department for  | making public yesterday the de-  tailsyof a test of armor with the  six-inch gun iu which one of the  soft-nosed projectiles pierced the  plate almost as if rit were oak, declaring his belief that the test had  been made public for the effect it  might have upon the senate debate  on the impending bill.  jSynator Chandler-felt the navy  irtV^ai'tmen t had not dealt frankly  with the senate in respeefc to the  information regarding the teste.  Senator Hoar discussed the subject briefly, deprecating the evident  inability^of the senate to keep its  --.carets and criticizing the navy department for publishing information withheld from the senate.  After some brief discussion it was  decided,-inasmuch as the salient  facts had been published, that the  niliior plate matter might as well  1 e considered in open session. In  * Hi is connection it was pointed out  ' iliab there was really no secret  about the soft-nosed projectile, as  4 i he navy department has been ex-  _- periuienting with the projectile for  1'years.  Later in the day a communication  . way submitted to the senate by senator Hale from the bureau of  oi dnance of the navy department,  iu which was -described���minutely  llie effect of the projectile in question upon various kinds of armor*  Jr. was shown that the projectile,  which is a solid steel shot, not a  s-hell, carrying no explosive charge,  would pierce the best of armor  \\ lien the conditions of the tests  were perfect in ovory instance, but  only iu suck conditions.  Spanish Politics Troubled.  Pauls, May 10.���A dispatch to  the Temps from Madrid says the  greatest perplexity prevails in the  political world over the situation  ejeatcd by tho events in Catalonia,  tho national union campaign, the  scheme existing between tho indus-  trial and -commercial classes aud  the political parties aud by the  jittitude of the Carlists, republicans  and socialists, who are -always  ready to take advantage of all circumstances, a situation which is always assuming exceptional gravity.  Marshal Martino de Campos summed  up the situation in the following  words: "The miiiistry must govern  Washington, May 10.-���The new  auditor of the papal legation, Rev.  Dr. Francis Marchetci, arrived in  this city from Home today. He  came via Naples and, on account of  his voyage covering about two  weeks, reached the legation feeling  quite unwell. Archbishop Mar-  tinelli and Rev. Dr. Rooker, secretary of therlegation, left Washington today for Portland, Oregon.  MonseigneurMai'tinellistatedthat  he was going west to'fulfil.a promise made by him to the archbishop  of Oregon, Dr. Alexander Christy,  who* desired to receive the pallium,  or badge of rank, direct from  his hands. Both himself and  Dr. Rooker will be absent  from Washington for , at least  three weeks during which time Dr.  Marehelli will have charge of the  legation. ,He is a native of Rome,  was born in 1867 and has never  visited America before/altliough he  speaks English fluently. He succeeds Monseigneur Donatius Saretti  recently appointed ' bishop of  Havana,. Cuba, who was the first  auditor of the legation.  Before leaving archbishop Mar-  tinelli stated that no credence  should be placed in the rumors regarding episcopal appointments.  But three vacancies, those at Vancouver, Savanah and Tacoma have  been filled, as announced by the  Associated Press. Monseigneur  Martinelli expressed his *��� surprise  that a report cabled from England  recently announced the appointment of Dr. Sparreti as archbishop  of Havana."  'He says that no appointment Jias  been made for one archdiocese already exists in Cuba, that of Santiago, of wliich. archbishop Baranta  is the incumbent. ' Both bishop  Sharetti of Havana and bishop  Belnk of Porto Rico are his suffragans, as the province of Santiago  includes these, sees alone.  J. C. BROWN IN THE CABINET  Coast Political Rumors.  Victoria, May   10.��� [Special to  The Tribune.]���The entry of J. C.  Brown into the provincial cabinet  has occasioned considerable  speculation in regard to what influences  led him  to alter his attitude towards Mr. Martin.   It is  rumored  that he entered the cabinet only  after   an   arrangement   had   been  reached whereby the question of  the   premiership   will   be thrown  open after the elections, and. the  government   supporters    will    be  asked to decide, between   himself  and the present premier.     Rumor  .has   also -associated   the name of  Cotton with the post of agent-general in London, should Mr. Brown  become   premier.     Comox   correspondence says   the   Independents  are having" a hard time to find a  candidate.; *  " The ex-minister of finance reappeared in.' town _ last Saturday.  He is not averse to talking politics,  but has very little to say concerning his extremely short tenure of  the portfolio beyond that; he received it honorably, and resigned it j  honorably. The refusal of Mr. Mclnnes to oppose Mr. Mounce in  Comox practically makes the latter's  election a certainty.  collective note- informing president Kruger that the powers would  hold him personally: responsible for  the safety of the mines, and would  support Great Britain in enforcing  compensation in the event of their  destruction. ���  or resign.  The Quito's Cargo.  New York, May 10.���The Quito  sailed today for Bombay, India,  with 200,000 bushels of corn for'the  famine districts.

Washington, May 10.���Respect-  jug the statement telegraphed from  Pretoria to the effect that the foi'-  WE WILL FIGHT TO THE END  Steyn's Brave Boast.  Nkw York, May 10.���According  to a dispatch to the Herald from  Zand river, via Lorenzo Marquez^  president Steyn in an interview  with Richard Harding Davis last  Monday said:  "We will fight to the end. Not  one of my burghers is unwilling to  fight. We have never considered  abandoning the Transvaal. We  will fight at the Vaal river, at Pre-  toiia and afterwards in the mountains. We have nothing to gain  by peace, everything by fighting.  The British are now at Winburg  and Virginia. We expect a big  battle shortly.".  Boers Move From Ladybrand.  Thaba Nvm\ May 9.���The Boers  have moved their ' headquarters  in this district from Ladybrand to  Cloeolon. They occupy strong positions at Negathling's Nek. The  British, including general Brabant,  are scattered among a number of  strategic^ points, securing the  country south of the line from  Winburg to Lady brand.  Women Want to FiHht.

Many Fires in America.  New York, May 10,���The national board of fire underwriters in  annual convention today, elected  the following officers: President,  G. P. Sheldon, New York; vice-  president, E. L. Ellison, Philadelphia; secretary, Robert B. Heap,  Philadelphia; treasurer, Fred W.  Arnold. In his address the retiring president, H. G Irvin of Philadelphia, reviewed the events of the  year, and said that the fact-which  must impress itself on insurance  men as of most serious importance,  is the enormous Are loss of the  country, which amounted in 1899  to $153,597.83. Mr. Irvin said: "If  we may judge from such records as  are accessible, property in the  United States is burning in a  greater proportion to values than  in any other country. This is the  more startling when the destruction goes on in a year like the one  under review, when business generally is admitted to have been good."  Forbid Travel on Lake Bennett.  Victoria, May 10.���The Canadian  authorities, have forbidden travel  on Lake Bennett until the opening  of navigation. This means that  traffic will not be allowed on the  lake until the steamers commence  to navigate its, waters, which will  probably be three or four weeks.  Canadians Are at Winburg.  HAjMilton, May ' 10.���Captain  Carpenter, who left Halifax in  charge of recruits for tbe first contingent in South Africa, cabled his  father yesterday that he "had arrived at Winburg, Orange Free  State, which indicates that the recruits are at that point.  Free Staters Moving North.  Maseru, May 0.���The Free Staters are moving in small parties,  with their herds, from Ficksburg to  Bethlehem, on their way to Harris-  mith or the Vaal.  Another Denial From Berlin.  Berlin, May 10.���The semi official  papers this evening deny that Germany   has  participated    in   any  No Corbett  New; York, Ma;  Jeffries and James J. Corbett will  fight 25 rounds tomorrow night in  the arena of the Seaside Athletic  Club ' for the heavyweight  championship of the world, now held by  Jeffries.    They   will    wear     live-  ounce*      gloves       and      Queens-  berry   rules   will    govern,   except  that there shall be no hitting in  the clinches.   Charley White will  be the referee.    It is expeeted that  between 10,000 and 15,000 persons  will see the nght,-whieh will be for  60 per cent of the gate-, receipts or  About $'15,000.     Of fchi4 sinn^the  winner is to receive 75 per cent or  $33,750, while the loser will  get 25  per cent.   There is plentyof Jeffries  money   in 'sight, but   Corbett currency   is   hard   to find.      Jeffries'  admirers      have ���   entire      confidence     in   the     champion.      The  men     have    agreed     there    will  be     no     hugging     or ,   holding.  Each principal tomorrow night will  have at least three seconds.    Gus  Ruhlin, George  Considine and Lee  Pardelle will be in Corbett's corner  and   Jack   Jeffries,  Tommy  Ryan  and   Ed   Dunkhorst   will   second  Jeffries.  ROBERTS ACROSS THE ZAND    f  Strange Headquarters.  London, May 10.���Lord Roberts  reports to the war oflice as follows:  - --Cable- Cart,-headquarters-at  front, May 10.-9:10 a. m.���We are  now across the Zand river. The  enemy are still holding a strong  position but we are gradually pushing them back."  The crossing of the 'Zand river by  the British appears to have been  effected sooner than even the most  sanguine expeeted, and this morning lord Roberts' temporary headquarters is established in a  cable cart on the north bank  of    the     river. The      opposi  tion the federals _ are offering  shows that yesterday's reports of  the abandonment of their position  were ill founded. Lord Roberts'  advance force, consisting of from  10,000 to 12,000 mounted men besides infantry, artillery and ' the  naval contingent, appears to be  sufficiently-powerful to overwhelm  any opposition the burghers can  offer. Even though, as reported  yesterday, they been reinforced by 3000 men from  other commands and possess  a score of heavy guns, the experts  believe the opposition will not be  prolonged more than shall be necessary to remove the guns and  other impediments in the direction  of Kroonstadt.  Further reports from Lorenzo Marquez show that the  customs authorities, in addition to  clothing and shoes, refuse to clear  corned beef for the Transvaal, holding it as contraband.  Patriotic Fund Increases.  Ottawa, May 10.���The Canadian  Patriotic Fund to date amounts to  ��271,832.00.   .  CANDIDATES IN THE FIELD  In the Slocan.  KAslo, May 10.���[Special to Tho  Tribune.]���Despite premier Martin's  assertion that the eight-hour law is  a dead issue, it will probably cut  considerable figure in the Slocan  during the coming campaign, which  opened in earnest here last night,  when . R. F.. Green made his first  speech asking the. electors of the  riding to re-elect hiin. He fully explained his connection with the  eight-hour law. .  Thomas Forster, ex-speaker of  the legislature, also addressed the  gathering, and was considerably  heckled by George Kane, on behalf  ���of Joe Martin, and by Mr, Wood of  the Last Chance mine upon the  eight-hour law. r> Mr. Wood and  magistrate Carney, who was in the  chair, had a wordy duel over  Wood's eight-hour law questions,  and it seems that from the start  the election will be a pretty exciting one in this district.  John Keen was formally nominated last-night as the business  men's candidate, whileGreen comes  put as an independent with a  strong leaning .towards the Provincial Party. Both men have issued  their election address.  now   located in   Toronto as   sales  agent for a coal company, was  the  petitioner, and a creditor objected  to his discharge on the grounds  he  was a resident of Canada and therefore could not. avail himself of the  provisions   of   the    law.     Ilefree  Moss of this city held that Clissdell  had established a domicile in New  York state, and was simply a temporary resident of Canada and so  entitled to his discharge under the  law's provisions.   Judge Cox's decision sustains referee Moss'  contention.  W. L. HAGLER IS NOT GUILTY  RAILWAY STRIKE GOES ON  Young Woman Killed.  '.',; St. Louis, Missouri May 10.���The  feature of the day in the great  railway strike was the conference  between ' governor Stevens, the  members of the executive committee of the local Street Railway,  Employees' Association and the  officers and attorneys of the transit  company, called for the purpose of  ascertaining if some sort of an amicable understanding could not be  arrived at, to end hostilities. The  conference lasted for several hours,  _- * _ ������ /    _*  but at its conclusion governor Stevens announced that nothing had  been accomplished.    *  The Suburban company operated  its system under police protection  during the entire day without interference, and was patronized  liberally by the public. The Transit  company ran two ears over one  branch of its system but did not  attempt to carry passengers.  Another fatality as a result of  the strike was recorded tonight. As  Flora Siegfried, a young woman,  was crossing Washington street  carrying an infant in her arras, she  was hit on the head' Avith a brick  that had been hurled at a passing  car on the Suburban system. Her  skull was fractured and she died  shortly after being carried to the  city hospital.  _   International J}ommittee_ Wanted.   Washington, May 10.---The  house committee on foreign affaiis  today acted favorably ou the joint  resolution forcing the president to  iuvite Great Britain to -join in the  formation of an international commission, four from each government, to consider the diversion' of  waters along the boundary of the  United States aud Canada. Tho  inquiry is designed principally to  ascertain the effect of ihe level of  tho lakes caused by improvements)  to tiie Welland canal, Sault Ste.  Marie canal and the Chicago drainage canal. The inquiry covers the  entire lake region, including ali the  waters of the lakes and rivers and  by which the water flows by the  river St. Lawrence to the Atlantic  ocean.

HOPE RUNNING HiGH AGAIN  Situation in the Free State.  London, May 11.���4:50 a. m.���  Members.of the house of commons  were freely betting in the lobbies  last evening that lord Roberts  would be in Pretoria in two months.  From 15,000 to 20,000 is the highest  estimate of the Boers under the  command of general Botha, who is  said to havo 46 guns. Lord Roberts  is pressing hard after ; this force  with 35,000 men and 140 gims and  20,000 more men are easily avail-  .able. "'.'' ..:'.'���'"'���' ':' .'.'���..

An Important Decision.  Elmiua, May 1].���Judge Cox  has  just handed down an important decision in bankruptcy proceedings.  F. V. Clissdell of Corning, who is  Confession Obtained.  Havana, May 10.���The postal  frauds have reached a point where,  within the next few hours, other  arrests will probably occur, and it  is believed-that a considerable sum  will be recovered at the same time  that the arrests are made.  One of the culprits, has made a  complete confession, conditional  upon hi.s testimony being accepted  as state's evidence. What he says  proves conclusively what was  known before, that several others  besides Charles F. Neely, late financial agent of posts at Havana, are  more or lesh implicated. The exact dates have been 'obtained by  the authorities.  The latter refuse to give the  name of the man who has confessed, but, though shocked at the  nature of the confession and coldblooded swindle aud conspiracy,  they arc still glad that they have  evidence to completelyjustify their  action in regard to Neely.  Johannesburg Mines Safe,  Cai'K Town, May 10.���The Cape  Argus published a report from  Johannesburg, said to have been  suppressed in the cross-examination  of mining engineer Munniek, that  Munnick testified that preparations  had been made to explode 25 mines,  and, on the authority of secretary  Reitz, he (Munnick) had already  bored shafts in eight. '"Well informed foreigners in Pretoria," says  the correspondent of the Cape  Argus, ''now consider the mines  safe. The Transvaal officials have  issued appeals to the people to protect property, and although preparations wore made to destroy the  principal mines, wiser eounssls now  prevail. State engineer Kliuk declined to resume his duties unless  the dynamite was removed, and  the government agreed to hia demands."  Sketch of the Case.  Great interest was aroused yes-  .terday by the case of Regiua vs.  W. L. Hagler, secretary of the Sandon Miners' Union, who was accused  of unlawful assembly. The alleged  offense occurred on the night when  the Payne Mining Company imported a number of cheap alien laborers  to work at the mine. Tiie facts as  "brought out by the evidence were  briefly as follows:  W. Ii. Hagler had been warned  by a telegram that these men were  coining, and when he heard a train  coming   in   at   the   unusual   hour  of  11 o'clock at night, he got up,  and from a conversation with one  of,the train  men he  was  given  to  understand that the scabs  in question were aboard.    He accordingly  made his way  up to Payne siding.  In  the   meantime   the   news   had  spread, and about 20 union -men in  all went up  there with a view  of  laying the true  state of affairs before the limported men.    They were  not allowed to speak to them, however, and an altercation ensued iri  whicli the   accused   abused   C. H.  Hand, superintendent of the Payne,  in   somewhat   strong   terms.     No  violence,  however,  was  offefed in"  any shape or form.    Afterwards he  laid air information against Hagler  for   unlawful   assembly, and   also  telegraphed  for police   protection.  CH. Hand, John Day and  George  Hughes gave evidence for the prosecution, and McLean, Noil,  Morrison,  McDonald and  W. L.  Hagler '  for the defense.  For the defense, W. A. Macdonald, Q. C, urged that the men were  there for a peifectly lawful purpose, and that the altercation between Hands and Hagler had been  unduly "magnified, and that there "  was no occasion to fear nor any^,  threats of violence. J. A. Macdonald, Q, C, for the crown, took the  ground that though the assembly  might have originally been for a  lawful purijose, yet, when on the  ground the conduct of their spokes*-" '  man, Mr. Hagler, was such as to indicate that violence might have  been reasonably expected to .occur  at any moment,  - The jury, however, did not take  this view, and, after being out  about two hours und a half, they  brought in a verdict of not guilty.  Mr. Hagler had many friends in the  court room, as was shown by the  number of congratulations he received.  The jury was a very representative one, as a glance over tho names  will show, but it was notimpauplled  without considerable trouble, as  the crown ordered fifteen to stand  aside while the defense challenged  four. The jury, as finally selected,  was as follows : G. Gurd, foreman,  J. T. Fife, J. A, Dewar, F.B. Gibbs, '  T. Allan, Dr. Armstrong, G. W.  Hale, A. Carrie^ W._ Waldie, J.  Blaney. J. Rae and H. G.

The primary election yesterday  shows very clearly how the vote in  .Nelson will be on June_.0th. If the  electors take sufficient interest to  vote at a primary to select delegates to nominate a candidate, ifc is  altogether likely - tiiey -will take  more interest in voting to secure  that candidate's election.

The delegates  are not confined to one class. There  will be farmers, miners., laboring  men, pi-ofessional menjand business  men, but not a single politician.  some inducement would be offered  Canadians to remain1 in South  Africa. Now there can be little  doubt of it, for of late Kipling has  had a gift of prophecy in war  and polities. After his song  comes the blare of the trumpet.  It is also known that many of the  Canadians who went to the war expressed an intention of looking over  Africa before they came back, with  a view to settling there if they got  nn opening. A groat many of them  will probably accept any opening  that oilers itself for remaining in  the British service in any civil or  semi-military capacity connected  witli the work of reorganizing the  country.  This was not what Canada had in  mind when she sent these men away  to assist au imperial cause, yet the  men are freo agents���most of them  ���and must judge for themselves,  But if they stay they will miss some  inducements, too.  Devil in a Dog. -,  AYLaiBR, Ontario, May 10.���Alfred Baughman, a farmer from the  second concession, is held on a  charge of 'insanity. On Monday  night, while sleeping at the house  of his brothei', James Baughman,  he became violently insane and  gave the inmates a hard fight before he was controlled. Baughman  lias been slightly insane for some  time, and was possessed of the idea  that he had promised God that if  He would help him pay off the  mortgage on his farm lie would kill  the devil as an offset to the obligation. On Monday night James  Baughman was aroused by a great  noise downstairs. When he descended he found that the devil  had, according to his brother, assumed the shape of Baughman's  dog, and the crazy man had seized  him by the legs and battered his  brains out against the furniture.

It is all very well for Rudyard  Kipling to walk around the hospitals  in South Africa admiring the  young, sound, clean, intelligent and  well-educated Canadians who are  recovering from Avounds received in  battle. It ib also all very well for  him to refer to these i_hrce hundred  men as being beautiful young fellows, who should become heads of  saned and soaped families, but  when lie suggests that these volunteer soldiers of ours should settle  there he asks too much.  This country needs all the sane  aud soaped families it can grow for  some time to come.    We sent those  young fellows   to Africa to   help  thrash an unwashed, but straight-  shooting race of Boers, and we want  I fcheni   back when   the object has I  \ beon accomplished.    To tell the ac- j  tual truth, Canada needs them in  her own business, and could spare a  lot of other jnen much better than  those first-fruits of the soil.

Gratifying as arc the evidences of  ilie   material  prosperity which   is  general   throughout   the   country,  and in which all classes of the population share, it is well to give attention to whatever evidence is attainable throwing light upon.the well-  beiiig  of  the   Canadian  people in  another    sense   than   the   merely  material.     Statistics  of trade  expansion and business activity that  sols the coins jingling in the pockets  of  the farmer,  tho merchant, and  Lhe  workingman,   have  a  solidity  and  certainly not  to be  gainsaid.  They are the expression in figures  of the actual conditions which are  e\idont every day about us.    ]3ut  when it comes to the question of  1 lie character of Canadian manhood  aftil    womanhood,  and  the   moral  tendencies on Avhich the true well-  being  of  tho  country  must   rest,  while fairly certain and just con-  ( hisjons can be formed by anyone  w ho studies observantly the everyday developments of life about him,  and reads the newspapers, there is  a lack of statistics of moral probity  and of the advancement in manners  aiul    moral**..      Criminal   statistics  deal only with the shadows in the  picture  of the  national  life.    The  growth of moral excellence iu a people, the spread of honesty, temperance and the right ways of living  that   make   a   people   better   and  happier���these    are   developments  that the statistician cannot measure  and compute.   The vices of a people  cinbe given in figures, to several  places of decimals-*.    But tho virtues  of a people cannot be put down ae-  t'lilately in black aud white.  One virtue can be claimed beyond  question for tbe people of Canada  in a very marked degree, and that  ii tempei trace in tho u&o of alcoholic  liquors. Some striking figures in  t his regard are given in the statis-  i its of the British Hoard of Trade,  wliich show that whereas in Great  Jh J tain alcohol ..contributes 36 per  cuit of the revenue, and in the  Tinted States 28 per cent, in Canada the percentage so contributed  i-, only 17.1 per cent. If all the seo-  lions of Canada and all those of  Australasia are grouped together,  tho consumption on tho average of  i hree years may thus be compared  wilh that oi" Great Britain and the  Uuited States:  Wine 'Boer SpinN  (.matin. .*.... 0.0**        .'!(> 0 0ft  A Uxtrdl.thM.   ......         103       101! 0.70  t'i i ed States    0*0      1".H OWJ  Cic.it Diitain 0.11       319 1.U3  "it is generally assumed," says  the Licensing World, "that the  average alcoholic strength of wine  is 30 per cent, whilst that of beer is  about Jl-per cent of proof-spirits.'!

In the  published papers of tho Engineering Society of the School of Practical Science, Toronto, Mr. W. II.  Ellis, M. A., M. B., has a paper ou  fire making that is very interesting.  Ho shows that the making of a  fire by the use of friction between  two pieces of wood was widely disseminated among savage races,  being employed throughout both  North and South America, in Polynesia, Australia, Asia and Africa.  The commonest  method  of production the necessary friction  was  by boring.    This method, Mr. Ellis  says, was employed by-the Iroquois  and   Algonquins   of   the   western  plaius,   the   Esquimaux   and   the  Indians of South America, as well  as many tribes in other quarters of  the globe.    The Indians of this continent wore very expert in the use  of this fire hand-drill.   The Hurons  and   Iroquois    took   a   fiat   piece  of    cedar,     near     the     edge     of  which they bored  a hole with  a  beaver tooth. Fromthiscavityalittle  canal led to a match   of   frayed  cedar bark, all in  readiness to be  ignited by a  spark.    Inserting  the  pointed end of a  round cedar stick  in  this  hole, they rotated  it  with  their hands with such violence  and  rapidity that   the   borings, whicli  were pushed out through the canal,  took   firo   and   ignited   the  cedar  bark.  It would appear that some  savages, more practical in tlieir  science than others, used a thong  on the upright stick as a string is  used on a top, to produce rapidity  of rotation. Mr. Ellis said that it  is very easy to produce a fire by  this method of wood friction.  D. R. Wllkio; GoncraliManagor.  E. Hay, Inspector.  Nolson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker Street  J. M.

Tho showing for Canada is  one in which Canadians'may well  take just .satisfaction. And uot  only does tho average Canadian  consume less intoxicants than the  ,average citizen of the countries  named, but the consumption of alcohol is steadily tending to decrease  in Canada. The inland revenue report for I89f) shows for wine and  t-pirits a decline in the per capita  consumption, aud for beer a slight  increase over 1898, and the ten-  rttiiiey has been in the bame direc-  * ion for a number of years. Undoubtedly our system of public  education has had an important in-  iiueuce in the creation of this ten-  tieucy. While tho immediate object oi the schools of Canada is to  inform and develop the thinking  tn'nid of the pupil, they co-operate  -with the churches in the work of  character building, and in laying  iho foundation of good citizenship  rtnd of reliable, upright manhood  it ud womanhood. Education is the  greatest foe to intemperance,  Fixe Without Matches,  The cheapness of lucifer matches  has brought them iuto almost  universal use, and the starting of fires  S��y primitive   methods is. quickly  A   LESSON   OF   A   FIRE.  The lessons of the great fire were  dwelt upon from almost every pulpit jn Ottawa on Sunday last.   One  of the most practical addresses was  that delivered at the .church of Our  Father, Unitarian, by the Rev. Mr.  Walkley, a native   Ottawan.    Mr.  "Walkley preached  on the practical  lessons to be taught by this calamity.    He contended that such siib-  jeet-** come legitimately within the  scone  of the pulpit ��>ince  they all  have an ethical bearing. Experience  is'our great teacher     It was*, only  after many lives -had been lost that  the railway companies had equipped  their cars with proper  brakes and  couplings, and overcome the dangers  of tho old modes of heating aud  lighting.     Railroad managers had  long before seen the necessity of  these improvements in tho interest  of hitman life, but recoiled from the  prospect  of diminished dividends.  Many years ago, and   every year  since, this very calamity in Ottawa  was foretold, but moneyed interests  stood in the way of the removal of  obvious   sources   of   danger.    The  wages paid to the laborers in  the  mills   were   such  that thoy could  only  build   fire  traps,  packed to-  ~g"etheras~closely as~ possible. ~ Mr.  Walkley referred to the widespread  sympathy and helping hands everywhere extended   to the  sufferers.  The empire shows, in this hour of  trial, that it is of one heart,  with  fellow-feeling for all.   The queen's  sympathy   shows   her   to   be   not  merely    the     able    constitutional  monarch,     and    wise     ruler,   but  the tender-hearted mother of her  people.   God bless the queen.   This  church denies the doctrine  of the  depravity   of   human nature and  teaches that the divine is in all  men.     The deep and   widespread  sympathy   and   proper   assistance  elicited by this great fire is  one of  many proofs of the soundness of  the doctrine. Mr. Walkley said that  we should have the right idea and  feelings with regard to social questions   rather than  theories about  abstract matters.    One suggestion,  and   it   met   confirmation   in  the  whole work done by the militia in  the fire, was the need of organization.  He suggested that a "call" fire brigade   should   be organized  to   be  brought out only in great emergencies.    The churches one and all,  have a great work in teaching the  people that the laws of the physical  world are as much from God, aud  to be obeyed,  as  any law of the  bible, creed or  church,  or  perhaps  more so.   The spectacle of people  putting out images and pictures to  stay the progress of the flames does  not speak well for the education, or  lack of it, in some of the churches  and schools.    It is the duty of those  who do know to instruct the ignorant, and if this were done and justice were meted out between  employer and  employee  there  would  be less misery and ignorance in the  world.     In this   work   our newspapers,   whatever   may   be   their  faults, deserve commendation. They  may not be such as Jesus would  edit (if anyone knows   what   He  would have .edited) but they are  doing a service to humanity and in  this    great   fire  have   come   near  to the thought of    Jesus  as   set  forth in the parable of the good  Samaritan.     The great Chaudiere  Palls, the gift of God to this part of  the world, belong, not to a favored  'few, but to all the people of "Canada, and their great power should  be used for the benefit aud protection of this, our capital city.   There  is  sufficient power in the falls  to  raise  water enough from the Ottawa  river. to flood this city and  ensure perfect   protection against  fire.   And it is the duty of the Dominion   government   to   take this  matter into consideration and act.  Ottawa, the capital of Canada, is a  fair oity,   beautiful for situation,  and ought to be the joy of all Canada.   Jn some way provision ought  to be made to constitute the capital  and its vicinity a district exclusively under the control of the federal  government.       The , government  could then enforce regulations for  the protection of   our parliament  buildings, which were threatened  by this 'fire, and are not even now  safe.    These buildings with all their  precious contents are the property  of the people of Canada, and the  people should insist, if the government  hesitates, that they should  nou be auy longer exposed to such  dangerjnerely_to suit_the convenience of men of wealth.   Mr. Walk-  ley closed by emphasizing the growing thought of the age that wealth,  being the product of the people is  held in trust for the benefit of the  people. They hold a mortgage upon  it, and if the mortgagers  betray  their trust, the people will foreclose.  WORKED   IT   BOTH   WAYS.  New Orleans Tiiiiss-Dcmocrat.  "If the real inside workings of  the average bucket shop were laid  bare," said a telegraph operator  who has had much experience in  such establishments, "the revelation  would open the eyes of the young  donkeys who imagine they can beat  the game.. Just to illustrate the  point I'll tell you a little story.  "Some time ago there were two  rival bucket shops in a certain  southern city, supposed to be  run by northern operators. Business was a little slow, and it  was evident that the speculative  element was inclined to be suspicious of both establishments. One  day the manager of one of the concerns hunted up a young fellow who  had more money than brains, and,  handing him $50, asked him, as a  special favor, to go over to the  other house and make such and  such a play. ' It's a private speculation of my own,' he said, 'and 1  have a straight tip, but I can't very  well place the money myself on account of my connection with ��� &  Co. If I did they'd get suspicions  right away.'  "The young idiot supposed, of  course, that he had struck a bonanza���one bucket shop man playing  against another! It must be a sure  thing ! So he not only placed the  $50 as requested, but played the  tip hard himself, aud so did all his  friends, whom he promptly let into  the secret. Needless to say, they  were all eventually skinned out of  every cent they put in, but the remarkable part of the story is that  the same tactics wore worked back  and forth by both managers on at  least a dozen different occasions.  Each time it was done they gathered in a lot of new clients and made  a big haul. It developed not long  afterward that' the two bucket  shops were run by the same people."  The Ideal Correspondent.  Archibald Forbes in his Memories  and Studies of Peace and War,  limned a picture of the ideal war  correspondent. To begin with a  war correspondent must have gifts  of the languages, and be an all-  round linguist. He must be sweet-  tempered, suave and diplomatic,  but big and ugly enough to command respect. He must be strong,  athletic and able to ride anything  from a giraffe to a rat. He  must have plenty of endurance  and think nothing of riding a  hundred miles at a stretch. He  must not mind such trifles as having  to do without food or sleep for a  week at a time. He must be able  at the end of a long ride over difficult country to write round-hand  for a foreign telegraph clerk, ignorant of the correspondent's language,  at the rate of a column an hour for  six or eight hours. He must be a  competent judge of warfare, with a  genuine instinct for likely places of  battle, must discern victory or defeat before the end, and then, having como to the conclusion as to the  fate of the day, must ride off from  the field, without seeingwhetherhe  is absolutely right or not, to pen  and wire his account of it.

It was reported yesterday that  the Star mineral claim, on the divide between  Kaglc and Sandy creeks, had boon bonded for a  large sum. John Weinberg, one of the owners,  would not corroborate the statement.  The steam roller was run over  the macadam block on Josephine street to roll  tho rough stone before the IImil dressing of lino  material or metal is applied. The roller worked  satisfactorily, and a large number of citizens  witnessed its evolutions.  The remains of the late Harry A.  Gervan, who was killed in the explosion at Six-  mile Point, aro to be removed to Ottawa, where  his parents reside, shortly. A number of the deceased young man's friends are subscribing  toward a fund to be used in the erection of a  monument.  Rev. father Ferland received  a  letter from bishop Dontenwill, who is en route to  Rome. Tho letter .was only 13 days en route.

After spending the' morning about  town, the visitors were entertained  at   luncheon   in   Fraternity   hall.  Mayor Houston and a number of  leading citizens were iu attendance.  The proceedings were of an  informal nature,  but after the covers  were removed a few speeches were  indulged in.
