NELSON:  TUESDAY ^ORNING OCTOBER 23 1900  PRICE FIVE .QENTS  HOCKING FOUND GUILTY OF BIGAMY  He Had One Too  Many Wives and  Must  Years for His Folly.  Serve Three  whole region will0 soon be frozen  up, making it next to impossible  for the Windward to get out this  year. .  PRISONER MAKES A STIRRING APPEAL FOR CLEMENCY  William It. Hocking of Cranbrook,  was convicted of bigamy at the assizes yesterday and  sentenced   to  throe     years'     imprisonment.     A  V!ii'ie"ty of circumstances combined'  to make the case of more than ordinary interest and every step was  watched   with   keen  attention  by  those who crowded the court room.  The fact was established.without  contradiction that in 1895 Hocking  married JViunie Ruth at Salt Lake  City,   (Hah. and   that in January'  last he married Jean Montgomery  at Cranbrook, and tho case resolved  into a question  of bona  fides.    To  secure an acquittal il was necessary  for  the defense to establish that  Hocking was innocent of criminal  latent when he married Miss Montgomery.    To  do  this  the prisoner  ' went into the witness box and told  an ingenious story.    After  parting  from his wife at Salt Lake  City he  had moved from point to point and  was in Colorado during 1S9S.   Here  a copy of the Salt Lake Tribune  fell into his hands containing a legal  advertisement to the effect that he  had been made  the defendant in a  suit for divorce instituted by Winnie Hocking, and that if no counter  plea was entered within 00 days the  decree would be granted by default.  ��� Hocking asserted that he took no  action and thought the matter  of  the lirst marriage was disposed  of.  Later, in 1899, he met Miss  Montgomery   and   became attached to  ^- her.    To further satisfy Ins mind he two personal friends, at  Salt Lake City requesting them to  look,/, up   the . records   as   to ' the  divorce.      Both   replied   that the  decree had gone through by default.  No impediment seeming to exist he  married the second time.  .'A. month  after the wedding.Jiis wife found  the letters and' when put on the  stand she corroborated this statement.     In   connection with these  letters it was significant that they  could not be produced nor had any  mention been made of their existence at the preliminary hearing at  Moyie.    The prisoner swore he had  other letters and papers bearing on  the case but -that the documents ,  had been stolen from him while in  the,"bull, pen" during the Coour  d'Alenes troubles and never returned on his liberation. A damaging piece of evidence was given by  the second wife who testified at  Moyie that Hocking once said to  her in a fit of passion : "You have  no hold on me." The prosecution  held this statement indicated that  Hocking knew his second marriage  was not binding and therefore  bigamous.  The principal witnesses for the  crown were Minnie Hocking, the  first wife, and Parley P. Christensen ah attorney, both of Salt Lake  City. Mrs. Hocking Avas accompanied by her two children and  was of most prepossessing appearance. Her evidence was straightforward and detailed the facts  leading up to the separation from  her husband. She is self supporting and is now. seeking" a divorce.  Mr. Christensen testified as to the  legality of tho first marriage and  stated that it had not yet been  finally dissolved.  Mr. justice Walkem charged  strongly against the prisoner, his  verbal castigation being about as  severe as any address ever delivered  from the bench. The jury was absent for a shorty time only and returned a verdict of guilty.  Ju' reply to the query as to  whether he had anything to say  before sentence was passed Hocking  made the neatest speech ever delivered from the prisoner's box in  the court house. He urged his  honor to deal leniently .with him,  maintaining, strenuously that he  was wholly guiltless of .any intention to break the law or wrong the  woman who had become his wife at  Cranbrook. He' was anxious to  have an opportunity to see JMiss  Montgomery before being taken to  the penitentiary in order to turn  over what money and valuables he  possessed to her and would also, if  tho law permitted, marry her at  the earliest possible moment in  order that her unborn child might  have a name.  Hocking's remarks  worded and created a  pression.     The sentence   of  years'    imprisonment    was  Old Enough to Votel  Ogdexsiiurg, New York, October  22.���Joseph Labroint, a French  Canadian, long a resident of this  city, is believed to have been the  oldest man in northern New York  to register this week.

London, October 23.���The Times  publishes the following from its  correspondent in 8b. Petersburg:  "It is safe to say the visit of the  ^Chinese^minis^  the Russian court and the. principal ministers are now staying, and  whence the Russian government is  directed with more secrecy than  would be possible here, is connected  "with an endeavor to make a separate arrangement concerning. Mau-  (huria."  Tlie Russians will continue to exterminate the Chinese in .the most  ruthless manner iu order to protect  the future of the railway. A critical study of the official report shows  that Chinese resistance has been a  mere farce.  The Russians have only been too  glad of the opportunity to kill  every Chinese soldier and to destroy every .vestige of Chinese  authority in Manchuria, and they  have taken advantage of this farcical resistance with a vengeance."  A Fatal Fire.  Montr ea l,, Quebec, October 22���A  fire which broke out in a small tena-  ment house on Archambault lane  ' at l.SO'this^niorning resulted in the  death by suffocation of five child;  ren. The father, Arthur Leblanc,  a shoemaker was badly burned but  will live. The mother was only  slightly injured. The children were  in an upper room and were dead  before the firemen could get to  them.  Riot In Coal Fields.  WiMvESBARRE, Pennsylvania, October 22.���This evening there was  another riot at the Stanton wash-  ery of the Lehigh & Wilkesbarre  Coal Company. When the workmen started to go home under the  protection of the coal and iron  police, fully 5000 people had gath  ered. A telephone message was  sent to police headquarters in this  city for help and chief of police  Kline and a number of officers responded.

"  United States Buys Territory.  Berlin, October 22.���Reliable advices from Copenhagen assert that  the sale of the Danish Antilles to  the United States will soon be effected. Next Thursday the Danish minister to the United States,  Dr. Constantino Brun, will start  for Washington after completing  his home coming, bearing the  formal terms of sale. A bill authorizing the alienation at the price  fixed by the present cabinet, $7,-  000,000, will reach the Reichstag in  a few weeks.  Mint For Canada.  Montreal, October 22.���Hon. W.  S. Fielding, Canadian minister  of finance, in a campaigu speech  this evening announced that the  Canadian government had obtained  the cousent of the imperial government for tho establishment of a  branch of the royal mint in Canada.  This mint would coin all the Canadian gold required, the balance of  the Yukon and British Columbia  product being made up into British  sovereigns.  Peary's Party in the Ice.  St. Johns, Newfoundland, October 22.���The latest fishing craft  to return from northern Labrador  reports that nothing has been seeu  of the Peary exploring steamer  Windward.

COAL STRIKE IS STILL ON  MINERS     WANT     A     DISTINCT  UNDERSTANDING.  The Outlook, However, For an Early  Settlement Bright, Is the Opinion  Of President Mitchell.  Appointed Governor.  London, October 22.���Sir Cornelius Alfred Moloney has Jbeen appointed governor of Trinidad  and Tobago Island, and will  bo ' succeeded as governor  of the Windward islands by sir  'Robert Baxter LleAvellyeu; now administrator of the colony of the  iCambia and formerly administrator  of Tobago.  CHINAMEN OFFERED A BRIBE  WITNESS  TESTIFIED   THAT   $500  WAS 0FFEEED FOB PERJURY.  Rather Startling Evidence Introduced  Yesterday in the Chenoweth  Murder,Case.. ���  The Chenowith murder case was  opened at the assizes yesterday afternoon at the conclusion of the  Hocking trial. Four crown witnesses were examined before court  adjourned for the day, H. A. Mac-  Lean conducting the prosecution  and A. H. MacNeill of Rossland  cross-examining for the defence.  A startling announcement was  made by Mrs. Wright, one of tlie  crown's witnesses, who stated positively on oath that since the preliminary examination before the  Magistrate at Rossland in May last  her husband had been approached  by two Chinamen who offered him  $500 to bring evidence which would  secure the conviction of little Ernest Chenowith. This testimony  will doubtless have a material  bearing on the ease as supporting  the contention of the defence that  Mrs. Chenoweth's Chinese servant  was murdered by his fellow-countrymen at the instigation of Highbinders or a secret society of similar nature. .;'.-; r - .  The extreme youth of the little  pri.sonerrwhose"head=barelyTeacheT  to the top of the prisoner's box  coupled with the gravity of the alleged offence, makes the trial unique in the annals of Kootenay  courts, and the case is not paralleled  in the recent history of Canadian  justice. Chenoweth is hardly  eight years of age. Had the lad  been under seven years he could  not have been tried for murder,  but between the ages of seven and  fourteen years the law holds a boy  responsible for crime provided it  can be demonstrated that the defendant is capable of realizing tho  nature of the offence he commits  and the consequences which may  arise therefrom.  At yesterday's sittings the fact  of the Chinaman's death was established and medical evidence submitted as to the cause of death;  The physicians called could not determine whether the deadly bullet  was fired from within or without  the room in which the body was  found. It was also brought out  that on the day previous to the  murder two suspicious looking  Chinamen were seen about the  Chenoweth house.  Sherman's Funeral.  Washington, October 22.���The  fuueral of ex-secretary Sherman,  who died yesterday, will be held at  the Sherman residence early  Wednesday afternoon, Rev. Alexander McKay Smith, rector of St.  John's church officiating. Services  will be held in Mansfield, Ohio, on  Thursday whicli president McKinley  attends. It is known that Mr. Sherman loft a will, but no information  concerning it will be obtainable  until after the funeral.  .   Hazelton, Pennsylvania, October  22.���President.Mitchell in tin interview tonight practically admitted  that the   anthracite .coal  miner's  strike would end jis soon as the operators posted a notice guaranteeing the payment of a-10 per. cent  increase in' wages  until April 1st.  President Mitchell sajd: "The prospect of an early'settlement of the  coal strike   is "becoming brighter.  .Some of the operators have not 3ret  posted notices signifying their willingness to fall; in  lino  with the  Reading company or with the proposition made by. the Lehigh Valley  Company in tlie'Hazelton region.  If all of them notify their employees  by posting   notices , or   otherwise  that an actual, advance "of  10 per  cent would"be paid each mine emT  ployee and guarantee its continuance until April:'!st, together with  the abolition of, the sliding scale, I  believe that the1, terms' would be accepted by the* nfine workers.   The  reduction in powder from  $2.7:1 to  $l.ti0 has confuted the miners, but"  L some of the operators have"so fully  explained   how.   contract    miners  could receive the" full advance of 10  per cent as welly as" all others employed  that   I'v believe   this   obstacle can be overcome."  Although as president Mitchell  says, the outlook for an early settlement of the strike is bright, it is  difficult to make.a prediction as to  when the end will come. Some of  the coal companies are showing a  disposition hot; Jtq issue_, a second  notice guarantVeiKg-"the'pvaymeht"vo"f  the ten per cent increase in wages  till April. Among these' are. the  Delaware, Lackawanna & Western  and the Delaware &-Hudson, the  officials of which compauies are reported to have; declined to issue a  supplemental notice. The labor  leaders, however,- hope, that the  companies will in some way make  known that they will guarantee the payment of the advance  until April 1st. As soon as all the  notices guaranteeing the payment  of the advance until April 1st are  posted, president Mitchell will call  a meeting oi the national executive  board at which it is" believed the  strike will be declared off.

Oddie of the New York  Yacht Club today:'  London, October 22, 1900.  Oddie, Secretary N. Y. Y. C:  thanks for your kind telegram to  myself and.Kelly? Very willing to  meet "you on points proposed but is  hot 1 o'clock late enough, especially  as I consider it will be better to revert to the six hour time limit, the  shortening .of which to five and a  half hours at my request was productive of at least one abortive race  on last occasion.

Hazelton,; Pen nsylvania, October  22.���President Mitchell- of the  United Mine Workers tonight in an  interview said that if all the companies will notify their employees  that an actual advance of ten per  cent will bo guaranteed till April  1st and that tho sliding scale will  be abolished he believes the terms  would be accepted by the mine  workers. .   The Alliance to be Tripartite.  Washington,'October 22;^-The  state department today made public the correspondence which has  taken place between itself and the  French government since the original note respecting China, whicli  laid down the terms suggested by  France as a basis of negotiation for  a settlement. The last correspondence consists of two notes exchanged  by secretary of state Hay and M;  Thiebaut last week, putting in  formal shape certain verbal statements of importance respecting the  negotiations begun.    ..  An interesting and important  feature of tho United States' note  is the suggestion that the powers  bind themselves again to the "open  door," exactly the objects aimed at  in the British-German agreement  or alliance whicli was made public  last week. While this note by secretary Hay bears date of Oct. 10th  and the British-German agreement  is assigned the date of Oct. Kith,  the action of this government was  taken in ignorance of the agreement and it is entirely possible that  it may have been the means of  bringing about the disclosure of its  Grand Fohks, October 22���[Special to The Tribune.]���It   has just  leaked out that the post office here  was burglarized   last  Wednesday-  night and two registered packages, -  one containing one   thousand   dollars from  the ;/bank>,..pif v Montreal,  Greenwood,"and the other, contain-,  ing two thousand dollars from  the  same   bank   were   stolen.       Both  packages were   addressed   to   the  Eastern   Townships   bank.       The  bills were the issue   of   that   bank  and had been   sent   to   the. bank  branch here for   redemption.   .las.  MacKinnon, acting manager of the  branch bank states that it will' not  suffer any loss, as the   remittances  were fully insured   in  the British  and Foreign Marine Insurance Company.  The police are working on the  case. Postoffice inspector Dormah  of Vancouver has arrived here and  is conducting the -. investigation.  The packages it seems were left in  a drawer in the post office over  night. The action of the government in failing to provide a safe, is  severely criticized.  ==The-mysterious-part=of=the^i'ob-=  bery is the fact that tho post office  was found locked in the morning.  This has given currency to the belief that the burglars were well acquainted with the premises and the  postmaster's methods. A similar  robbery occurred a year and a half  ago when the robbers actually carried off several mail bags and their  contents.  Galliher Solid In Cariboo.  loO-Mir.R House, October 19.���  The Liberal campaign was opened  in Cariboo by a meeting held in the  interest of candidate Galliher,  Stuart Henderson of Ashcroft addressed the electors of the 150-Mile  House. A large and crowded meeting greeted Mr. Henderson, who for  one hour explained the Liberal position very effectively. Tho meeting Avas almost unanimously in  favor of Mr. Galliher, who will poll  a large majority here. Mr. Henderson is to be congratulated upon the  hearing he received aud the impression he made, and Mr. Galliher upon  the champion he has in Mr. Henderson.      -         " Will Pay Up.  Panama, Colombia, October 22.���  A dispatch to the Star and Herald  from Guayaquil says tho Ecuadorian congress has made arrange- which the country, will  pay its entire foreign debt.  Shipping Men Approve., October 22.���The Hamburg-American line, the North German Lloyd line, the Association of  Shipowners at Hamburg. Bremen  and the various other Chambers of  Commerce have telegraphed to  count von Buelow their heart}' approval of the agreement.  At a meeting of the directors of  the Imperial Development Syndicate held yesterday, the delegation  which accompanied A. n. Gracey,  the syndicate's engineer, to examine  the Lexington mountain properties  under consideration   by the  company,  reported so favorably that  the   directorate   unanimously   decided to close   the   bonds on the  claims and proceed at once with active   development.   Judging   from  the reports on the section, the Nelson men who comprise the Imperial  Syndicate have made one of the exceptionally   fortunate    strokes   of  business sometimes seen in  mining  sections.  To quote Sir. Gracey, who  has examined the claims thoroughly:  "These Lexington mountain properties   have   the    richest   surface  showings 1 have ever seen on a free  milling  property."     The hill was  first staked'in 1898 by prospectors  who were   looking for silver-lead  properties and made their locations  on the strength of a trace of galena.  Tho mountain is hard to prospect  owing to moss which povers  the  surface - inches   deep   and  as. the  original   locators   looked only for  silveivlead the merit' of  the free'  gold discovery wns quite overlooked  for some time and no work 'of any  account   was   done   beyond   open  crosscuts.     The Imperial syndicate  has tied lip most of the promising  claims on the mountain,     in addition to the list  mentioned-a few.-  days   ago,' they-have acquired''a'  half-interest   in four- claims   and.  bonds^pn-three-otheri'claimsV'giving^  them~contr6i of 12' a'djoining' locations. .On thepropertyarefour or five  true   fissure   veins   ranging   from  four to fifteen feet  in- width  from  which assays of $4>to $00 have been  had.   It is proposed to erect a comfortable camp and.put a crew of 12  to 15 men at work  immediately,  utilizing   a   couple of cabins now  erected on one of the groups under  bond as  quarters for the crew in  the   meantime.     Tunnels   will  be  started on a couple of   the   most  promising leads, aud the  nature of  the ground is such that development   can be carried on economically, and in  drifting  the  gain in almost foot for foot.  The' claims   are located  within a  mile of the  wagon road between  Comaplix and Cambore and .within  half a mile of the latter townsite.  A. H. Gracey leaves in a few days  =for=Lexington=mountain-to=get=de-=  velopment under way.

If they have deceived or betrayed the people once,  i'lTis a safe"a"sisumpti6ri~they".willdo  it again if given the opportunity.  So with newspapers. The Miner  deceived and betrayed the work-  ingmen of Kootenay when they  - were fighting for the eight-hour  day, and now it is telling these  same men that it is their best  friend.        In order to keep Nelson up-to-  date, the city council must provide  ways and light the streets.  The present council have less than  three months more to serve, and  they should turn over to their successors a city whose streets are  passable both day and night. It is  true that providing a plant to  light the streets will cost money;  but nothing, in the way of street  improvements can be secured without money,-and such an expenditure cannot be classed as other than  one thai; will bo for the good of all  tlie people-of the city. Light the  streets by all means.  The Tribune is the one paper in  the province that has always advocated smelting the ores of our mines  at home, By. doing so it has incurred tlie ill-will of the mine owners and the business element whom  .the mine owners control. But the I  fight for the hoino smelter is gaining ground. The Rossland Miner  now says the people of tlie province  can only secure the full measure of  prosperity by keeping within the  province the hundreds of thousands  |Tiip. TniiicNK has placed a part of one column  al the disposal^of tho Independent. Laborers,  whose views . will be expressed therein from time during Ihe campaign. A like privilege is accorded ilie Conscrvulivcs and the  Liberals.    Workinginen will do well to road  the report which Mr. (Jnlliher gives  of his visit in Ymir, wherein lie is  so confident of the support of union  men and compare it with the report  of the same visit as given by the  Miner correspondent. No doubt  Mr. Galliher was depending upon  the effect on union men that the  idle threat he made there would  have when he made such a cheering  report. With due regard for Air.  Gallihei-'H knowledge of (.he law, Ave  feel that he must fall far short of  an ordinary knoAvledge of human  nature if he thinks workinginen  can be scared by an empty throat  into forsaking their principles to  support his party. Mr. Galliher  would do Avell to learn that the day  is past when workinginen could be  driven in Hocks like lambs to the  slaughter, and whatever success  might attend an effort to lead them,  certain it is that they refuse to be  driven. The workinginen of Yale-  Cariboo-Kooteuay have a candidate  of their own, and thoy will support  him to a man despite all the predictions of the party leaders to the  contrary.  It is interesting and to a degree  amusing to note with what persistence the old line parties continue  to advertise the statement that  "Labor men were present at their  meetings." Strange, isn't it?  The Labor party have never considered it worth their Avhile to  mention the fact that old time  party men are continuously in attendance at' their rooms for the  simple reason that their ranks are  filled Avith them and more coming  hourly and still they come.  The explanation is so transparent  and simple that he who runs may  read. The absence of workihgmen  in their camps has struck terror to  the hearts of the^heelers and the  effort is being made to show that  the Labor party is divided. This,  however, is not the case. The  Labor party was never more united.  They are of but one opinion, that is  that the legislation most needed by  workinginen can not be obtained by  an old line party candidate. The  workinginen of today are too intelligent to be led aside by the oily-  tongued politician or to be carried  into captivity to be made"the slaves  of hide-bound partyism. They  have learned to seek their rights  through another channel, that of  independent political nation. This  they believe to be their only salvation and they are determined to  avail themselves of this, golden opportunity to deal a death .blow to  the old parties in Yale-Cariboo-  Kootenay who have promised so  much aud given so little.

In the meantime he adheres to his resolution to remain in  gaol until the funds are remitted  despite the protests of friends, who  are anxious to put up any amount  of bail necessary to secure his liberation. Mansfield's consolation is  that every day of his confinement  adds to the damages he will collect  from the syndicate sending him to  British Columbia Avith instructions  to do certain work on their properties and then failing to remit funds  to liquidate the obligations entailed  thereby, thus leaving him open to  the indignity of arrest and imprisonment.

The one industry on which the prosperity of this constituency is  almost wholly dependent is mining; and wo believe that our mining industries are as fairly entitled to protection as the manufacturing industries of Eastern Canada ; therefore, we advocate that the duties on lead  an(rie~~cl~~j~~rdtfcts*be"inr:reased7so-timt-they-shall-be-as-liigh-afl-tliORe-iiow_  imposed by the United States on the same articles.  That the output of the precious metal mines is largely increasing,  therefore we favor the establishment of a mint, so that the specie in circulation shall be that of our own instead of that of a foreign country.  We advocate tho restriction of tho immigration of Chinese and Japanese, and all classes who cannot become good citizens of the Dominion-  of Canada, and suggesttho adoption* of the principles of the Natal Act..  British Columbia lias not now the representation in the federal parliament that she is entitled to: therefore we advocate that when the  redistribution of seats is made that this constituency shall be given representation according to its population.  That it augurs well for the success of the party that Hugh 'John  Macdonald has decided to leave the field of provincial politics to take  part in the larger one that affects the people of the whole of Canada.

Lord     Charles     Beresford    has  ii mazed the world by the brilliant  strategy by'whieh he won the sham  11 ittle in the recent manoeuvres of.  tin-)   British fleet  in   the   Mediterranean.    His tactics have been pronounced the cleverest in the naval  nnnals.    The fleet was divided into  'two parts, Beresford in command of  one    and   admiral   Fisher   of   the  < itlier.    Beresford was blockaded in  the   port of  Mytilene by  torpedo  boats and  Fisher's  fleet was hovering about aud lying in wait outside.    Beresford's task was to coal  his fleet, get out of the harbor and  attack Fisher.  It should be remembered that lord Charles has never  been an enthusiast on the subject  of torpedo boats.    In fact he has  repeatedly decried its efficiency as  an offensive craft.    It is only a few  years ago   that,  speaking   in   the  house .of commons on a naval appropriation bill, he asked the admiralty  to furnish an old  warship, armed  and under his directions, of which  he would take command   with a  volunteer crew raised by himself  and defend it successfully against  the attacks of any number of torpedo boats.  His task at M ytilene was therefore precisely to his liking. By  putting lights on launches so as to  resemble ships in the darkness he  decoyed the torpedo boats away on  n- false trail and, with every light  on his own warships out, he slipped  away to sea without a vessel being  touched. Having done this he misled Fisher's scouts by false signals  and caught the hostile fleet entirely  unprepared off Lemnos. Fisher's  squadron' was steering iu parallel'  columns and Beresford manoeuvred  liisshipsso skillfully that the ad-  miral'had no opportunity to change  this formation or to do anything  but clear decks for instant action.  Reresford-ran Ins-ships in single file  t.igi'it in between tlie lines enabling  him to fight with both broadsides,  while each of Fishm's vessels could  use but one.  Tlie victory was so complete and  overwhelming that tlie umpire  asvarded it on the spot to the dashing hero of the Alexandria bombardment, who ran the cordon  In right under the guns of the  JSgyptian fort and battered it to  atoms at close range. Beresford's  daring seamanship and resourceful  tricks in these manoeuvres are a  startling contrast-to the old methods, and stamp him as the cleverest  rommander in the British navy.

The   product  is large when it is considered that  the company was compelled to suspend washing operations for about  24 days, awaiting the arrival of explosives, which were delayed in delivery on account of the heavy and  impassable condition of the   roads  between    Ashcroft    and   Bullion.  Were it not for this delay and serious loss of washing time; the   product of the second   run   would   no  doubt have reached about $210,000.  It is understood that the   Cariboo  company has stored iu its extensive  system    of    reservoirs,    sufficient  water to run the mine full time for  sixty days, so we may look for another large shipment of bullion before the end of the season, and   we  are safe in saying that the product  of the season of 1900   will   greatly  exceed $300,000.  TAKE DE WET TO BE PARNELL.  Throughout Ireland there is a  widespread belief that Charles  Stewart Parnell is not dead, but  that it is he who is now fighting  against lord Roberts in the Transvaal under the name of Christian  De Wet.  This extraordinary statement is  made by the Dublin correspondent  of the Paris Temps, and it was published in that paper a few days  ago. "Mauy people iu Ireland,"  says the correspondent, "believe  thac, instead of dying, Parnell  simply withdrew from public life,  intending to wait until a more favorable time arrived for- putting his  cherished plans into execution.  This belief has now become so  firmly fixed in the people's minds  that the great patriot's tomb is today neglected, though' it was for  several years a Mecca for patriotic  Irishmen and the rendezvous of all  the nationalistic societies in Ireland.  And, if Irishmen sympathize with  the Boers, a main reason is because  they believe that the Christian De  Wet who is battling with lord Roberts is their own beloved leader,  Parnell.  "I was present at the funeral of  the great Irishman, and T could not  help noticing that there were mocking smiles on the faces of very  many persons in the immense  throng. I expressed my surprise to  a venerable patriot, who was walking near me, and he whispered  these strange words into my ear:  'It's a dummy we're going to bury,  and our leader himself is following  tlie coffin, disguised as a priest.  The people even say that they had  great trouble to get him to cut off  his beard.

O.  playing aud won't England be surprised when she finds the dead Parnell coming back alive some years  from now!'  "During the following forenoon,"  continued tlie correspondent, "J  met a Nationalist member of parliament, who had been an intimate  friend of Parnell's and I told him  what I had hoard.  "He was not in the least .surprised, but he gave me a curious  explanation of the popular belief  that Parnell was still alive. , 'you  know as well as I do,' he said, 'that  we have just bidden an eternal  farewell to the great champion of  Irish liberty, but it is our duty to  keep silent when we find that the  Irish people are so strongly convinced of his immortality. Moreover, we must remember that Parnell, dead, will not be able to stimulate Irish patriotism in such splendid fashion as Parnell, while living,  was able to do, and therefore, it is  well that he should still live in the  imagination of his countrymen.' "  There is said to be some physical  resemblance between general De  Wet and Parnell, and those who  knew the latter in life claim that  his character was in many respects  similar to that of the sturdy Boer  loader. There is also said, too, to  be some mystery about De Wet's  early life, and this is one reason  why the rumor has recently spread  throughout Ireland that lord Roberts' antagonist is none other than  Charles Stewart Parnell.

The residence of Mr. Rowley, corner Josephine and Observatory  streets was badly damaged by fire  this morning. The blaze was discovered about 1 -o'clock and an  alarm telephoned to the central station. The family had to leave the  house withoiit a moment's preparation and the lire had attained a  strong headway-before water was  turned on. The auxiliary station  at the rear of' Mr. Rowley's  lot was manned' by one lire-  man only aud the best he could  do alone was to use a Babeock extinguisher, which was practically of  no value under the circumstances.  The fire depaitment lost time  through changing the pole from the  chemical wagon to the old apparatus which was all the team could  possibly handle on the hills. A  section went to the fire on foot,  however, and got out the auxiliary  reel. The fire was subdued within  a few minutes after... water was  turned on. The,addition on the  south side of the' house, was destroyed but the damage to the main  building was comparatively light.  The fire is supposed to have originated from a defective chimney.
