Pleasant Smoking Concert at Opera House Last Night-
Returned Volunteer Spoke.
The smoker was ar-
give Lee a   chance to
The smoker at tlie opera house
last night in honor of private Alexander S. Lee was successful in many
respects. About 400 citizens turned
out to honor the returned volunteer and they were enthusiastic
whenever tlie khaki-clad figure was
iii evidence. -The entertainment
was .arranged on a few hours'
notice and the audience seemed
willing to put up with delays
whieh would not have been tolerated had the facts been other than
they were
ranged to give J-iee a
meet old acquaintances and relate
a portion of his adventures under
the British flag. This he did and
the,audieiieo was satisfied.'-'Refreshments were served and the proceedings lasted until a late hour.
Mayor Houston took the chair in
opening. He welcomed private Lee
home on behalf of the citizens and
referred , amid applause to the
manly way in whicli the Canadian
volunteers, particularly those of
tho lirst contingent, had upheld the
honor of .Canada while fighting for
the Empire in South Africa. Their
deeds, he said, had reflected credit
on themselves, and upon the colony
which sent them forth. He introduced private Lee who received a
splendid reception. Rev. William
Munroe, pastor of the Congregational church, followed with a neat
,  speech, in the course of   which he
paid   a   glowing   tribute   to   the
'  Canadian vblunteers-^and^-the  Em*
- pi re >for-which they Kad-fought."   -•
Private    Lee    contributed   "two
speeches   during  the evening.   Iu
the first he devoted himself to" de-
... ...scribing the movements of thejDan-
- adian contingent after it left Cape
Town to the point where they
reached Pretoria, when he left with
captain, now major Hodgins to
work on the railroad division. The
second address dealt with some of
tho incidents along the line of
march, such as the emergency
ration episodes, water supply, etc.,
most of which h.ave already been
touched on in Thfj Tribunr. Hearty
cheers were accorded Lee at the
conclusion of each speech and this
was repeated during the singing of
"Soldiers of the Queen," when he
stood at attention on the stage.
The balance of the program was
contributed by Messrs. Dick Slugg,
Albert-Steele, C. Hislop, Winter,
/Smith, R. Thompson and others.
— How^DewetHTook="Bevenge.	
in running over his' experiences
in Africa private Leo gives several
incidents of further interest. Among
these is the story of the Boer gon-
ei-al De wet's revenge, ft was currently reported among the British
troops that Dewet's continued persistence was not because ho hoped
to secure any special successes
against the British, but morely to
gratify his private revenge. The
British had burned Dewet's farmhouse, and when tho Boer general
learned of this he said: "I'll destroy a million pounds worth of
English property to even up." He
started ,in and how well he succeeded is known to all who have
followed the newspaper reports of
the recent course of events. One
of Dewet's acts which the troops
felt more than anything else, was
his burning of the mail train at tho
point where the railroad from De
Afi' to Johannesburg crosses the
Vaal river. It was the first mail
sent north after the troops left
Bloemfontein for Johannesburg and
contained four months' letters and
papers for 70,000 men. Dewet
wrecked the train and, set fire to
the whole outfit. Private Lee came
back over this road and states that
for two square miles arouud the
bridge the ground is covered with
half charred papers. It is estimated
that several hundred thousand
letters and papers were burned in
pure watonness as the Boers made
no attempt to read the letters or
profit by any of the correspondence.
This hurt tho soldiers feelings worse
than a good licking.
According to Lee, modern war
fare must lack all the picturesque
features of the conflicts of early
days. He has been under constant
fire for three days and never saw a
Boer during that period. In fact
the first Boer Lee set eyes on was
one who came into camp to surrender. He says the regiment would
march into a" position, lie down and,
receive instructions to fire at the
skyline of a kopje a mile distant.
Furthermore they never knew how
many men wero engaged on either
side. The    British   army   was
dogged by spies, and they were so
adept at securing information that
nothing was divulged save what
was absolutely necessary and that
at the last moment. Thus it was
that the Canadians would go into
an engagement not knowing
whether there wero 1000 or 100,000
more British in the same fight.
Two° regiments might march
along the veldt within two
miles of each other and each
be profund ly ignorant of the other's
location for a week. There were no
grand stand plays, and if the men
had enough to eat aud drink, with
sufficient time to sleep, they were
satisfied to let well enough alone.
The people in Nelson were much
better informed as to the general
course of events than were the
members of the contingent. In
fact the latter were profoundly ignorant of all that was transpiring
outside their immediate vicinity.
Judging from private Lee's experience there is nothing very terrible about a modern battlefield.
He was under fire many times but
-never saw, a man, Briton or Boer,
killed, nor did he ever to his
knowledge fire a bullet which
killed a Boer, although his Lee-
Enfield rifle was practically worn
out by use. The lirst dead man he
saw in the campaign was at Paardeburg when he happened across two
dead Boers in a trench. Lee says
the lyddite used by the British had
a terrible effect. On one occasion a
shell was exploded over a Boor
position and the defenders driven
out. When the British entered
they found 00 Boers had been
killed by the lyddite and it was
presumed that as many more
wounded were carried off.
Russia Has Money to Burn. -'
Wasiji*votox, November 0.—M.
Bouttowski, finance secretary of the
Russian, embassy, has returned
from St. Petersburg, where he had
an opportunity to confer with the
Russian    minister   of  finance,   M.
_Dewitt,_and_ to learn_from_the
authorities the satisfactory condition of Russian finances. On his
return Mr. Bouttowski was somewhat surprised to see it reported
that Russia was seeking to place
loans in the United States and advised the most responsible American financiers in New York that no
such investment was contemplated.
The rumors continued to circulate,
however, so Mr. Bouttowski gave
the Associated Press tho following
official communication which he received from the imperial minister
of finance of Russia: "in view of
the rumors which began to circulate again in tho foreign press
about the suggested negotiations
by 'the Russian government of a
loan, the ministry of France considers it necessary to declare once
more that the Imperial Russian
government is neither contemplating nor disposed to negotiate loans
of any kind, the ordinary revenues
and the free cash reserves of the
treasury being more than sufficient
to meet all expenses, not only ordinary but also the extraordinary,
necessitated,by events  in the far
east."    .      ' 	
France Would Have Acted Early.
Paris, November .9.—The Chinese
yellow book which was distributed
in parliament today shows that
early in March M. Delcasse, the
French minister of foreign affairs,
urging a combined naval demonstration in view of the agitation in
China, was opposed by a majority
of the powers, lord Salisbury saying that in view of the uncertainty
it was preferable to let the situation ripen, pointing out that the
government of the United States
had already declared it would not
participate in a * naval demonstration, which was contrary to its
Count von Buelow, German minister of foreign affairs, under date
of April- 4th, also thought the
trouble in Shan Tung province had
completely calmed down.
M. Jules Cambon, the French ambassador   at   Washington,   under
date of April  nth,  replying to M.
Delcasse's enquiry as to one American vessel with a British and  German ship being sent to the gulf of
Pechili    said     the. -   Washington
government     thought    that    the
growing   agitation   of   the   secret
socities justified precautions which
ought to take the character of a
joint demonstration of tho powers,
as minister Conger requested.   Secretary Hay thought the fears manifested in  China were exaggerated.
M. Cambon on June 8th  reported
a conversation with secretary Hay,
who said minister Conger wns only
.instructed to do what was essential
to protect American interests.   Mr.
Conger did not desire to amalgamate his action with that of the
united powers.
Typhoid in Montreal.
Montreal, November 9.—An ou t-
break of typhoid fever in two convents situated in this city has been
traced to the milk supply obtained
from a farmer named Choquette of
Beloeil. There are twenty cases so
far in the two institutions." An
examination showed that one of
Choquette's help had typhoid in his
family and that one of the man's
men had actually milked cows while,
suffering from a mild attack of the
disease. An example is to be made
of Choquette.

of Them.
Montreal, November 9. — Sir
Charles Tupper today announced
his retirement from public life. He
arrived in town this morning from
Halifax and met a number of prominent Conservatives. Sir. Charles
had offers of half a dozen safe seats,
but declared that his defeat iii Cape
Breton afforded him an excellent
chance of retiring and he intended
spending the:remainder of his days
in his own family. Sir Charles expressed, the hope that Hon. George
E. Foster would secure a seat in
parliament without great delay.
The choice of his successor will be
made by Conservative members.
The names most prominently mentioned are Hon. George E. Foster,
sir-C.-II.-Tupper and-AIr.—CasgraiiiT-
Sir C. H. Tupper came up from the
Maritime provinces with his father
and left later for the Pacific coast.
He attributed the' Conservative
losses in the lower provinces to the
fact that the Acadian, vote went
soldidly for Laurier.

The causes that^led up to the. arrest itlate back about" a month. Mi\
Cummlngs, it. appears, owned a
quarter interest-in^.the. North Fork
of Kettle River'Iraprovem'ent Company. It is alleged that after he
had been notified,by the provincial
government of £he cancellation of
the franchise, he'showed E.;Sprag-
gett, lumber merchant, a, telegram
purporting to have been received
from C. C. Young of Boston and in
which Young offered five hundred
dollars for Cummings quarter interest in the franchise. Mr. Sprag-
gett, being unaware of the circumstances and being' interested as a
sawmill owner on~the_Kettle river,
was offered the quarter interest for
the same figure.^; He .accepted the
terms .and;- \\\ ":^i_^^^ym^{itx_t\^ j
alleged, Jassumed-aii '"obligation of
Mr. Cummings'"amounting to one
hundred and twenty-nine dollars.
Subsequently he learned that the
franchise was valueless- and that
the seller had been so notified by
the provincial government prior to
Spraggett's purchase', - Acting upon
the advice of It.- A. Dickson, his
counsel, Mr. .Spraggett demanded
and obtained restitution. Mr. Spraggett, who had been handed the
alleged dispatch .from Young to
Cummings, submitted it to the
local agent of the Spokane Northern
Company, who pronounced it a
forgery. .The telegram, it appears,
was typewritten on a blank form
of that company. The facts having
been brought to the attorney-general's attention the -present. proceedings were ordered .to be instituted.
Japanese Way in Battle.
fire from the walls of Tien-Tsin,
and to show an inch of- head'meant
death, occurred a striking incident,
says Harper's Weekly. The Japanese held a row of huts along a canal
leading to the south gate of the
city, about half a mile away. An
interval of 250 yards between two
rows of these houses was.a. zone of
death, and the Japanese forces
occupied both sides of i t. No one
knows how many thousand Chinese
rifles covered this area. A Japanese officer galloped up to.the shelter of the nearest house and started
a soldier with a verbal order
across the open zone. Within .30
yards he fell dead. Another soldier, without an instant's hesitation, dashed out with the repeated
message, and his body fell at his
companion's feet. Instantly, like
clockwork, as if tho whole Japanese
army were available to be slaughtered, the officer sent forward another white-uniformed, brown-vis-
aged messenger. To the relief of
the onlookers he got safely through.

St. Johns, Newfoundland, November 9.—Official returns as to
yesterday's general election's have
been received from eight districts.
Of these tho Bond government, or
Liberal party, won seven; the Reid
Morine, or Tory party, securing
only one. In the Carbonear district Mr. Maddock. Liberal, defeated

London, November 9.— What is
possibly the most brilliant of all
public functions in -England, the
lord mayor's banquet, took place'
this evening.   It was a memorable'
event to Americans by reason of
the following remarkable utterance
of lord Salisbury, who in the presence of 900 guests, including United
States    ambassador    Choate,    the
-members of the-British cabinet and
many of the leading men of England spoke as follows of the American elections:     "We believe that
the cause which has been won is
the cause of civilization and commercial  honor.    We believe their
principles to be at  the root of all'
prosperity   and' progress    in   the'
world.    Therefore,  we claim that
we have as much'right to rejoice in-
wlmt has' taken - place as the   distinguished "gentleman (referring to
Mr.-Choate):. who sits at my side."
This waS'followed by loud and prolonged cheering whicli   made the.
golden plate on the oaken shelves
shiver.     •   - .
Lord Salisbury's, "incursion into
the internal politics of the- United-
States was preceded by an apology,
in the course - of which ho said:
"One of the circumstances which
gratifies me most .during the last
year is the very hearty friendly
feeling < displayed between this
country and - the United. States.
I hope Mr. Choate will forgive nie-
if there is any irregularity in the.
expr.ession.-c;.„„.-,^J.jj^£.-£J. _j:
"It is quite .wrong for a'secretary
of state to make any observations
in respect' to the. internal' politics
of another country, but I am* soon
to give up my office, and in view of
this abandonment, which is close at
hand, I hope Mr. Choate will forgive me for expressing tho supreme
satisfaction with which all of us
have heard of what has recently
taken place in the United States."
Mr. Choate replying a fewminutes
later to the toast of the diplomatic
corps, declared that lord Salisbury
had stated with such truth, simplicity and earnestness, the result ot
the election that lie (Choate) woulcj
not attempt to add to it, although
he would venture to congratulate
the.noble lord upon the fact that
his remarks, had been made after
instead of before the election.
(Laughter.) Except in its reference
to the United States, the speech of
the premier cast an extraordinary
gloom over the gorgeous banquet.
Following directly the colonel
commanding tho City' Imperial
Volunteers, lord Salisbury startled
his hearers, who caught tho drift
of his remarks, by satirizing the
Avar fever, although praising the
courage of tho soldiers and declaring that the passionate admiration
of military valor evidenced by tho
populace must produce a. change of
attitude on the part of the outside
world when viewing English chai-
Then with lowered voice and
almost trembling accents he went
on to speak of the price of victory
and the ravages of death, dealing
especially with the queen's bereavement in the loss of prince Christian
Victor. Finally, with bent head
and hands .clasped he uttered a
hope, almost a prayer, that lord
Roberts might be spared the sorrow now hanging over him by
reason of the critical condition of
his daughter. Tears sprang to the

Mr. Kruger and the empress of
China, ho went on to say, had

maintained that tlie British war
oflico deserved great credit for tiie
way in which it had handled these
emergencies. "Despite nebulous
and fictitious attacks, we should be
glad to improve all the defects of
tho war office and our utmost efforts
will be devoted to that task, but 1
should rather deprecate any unnecessary examination into what

"Did it declare the action of  the merchants cowardly aud timeserving? Not much. Yet today it  is shouting itself.hoarse inpraiseof  tho candidate of the Independent  Labor party. When the working  miners of Rossland were fighting  for their bread and butter, ..the  Heiuze kite was toohighin the auto notice them. When- they are  playing at politics, the kite; allows  ���all .the boys achauce at flying it.  The poor old Evening ��� Miner of  Nelson has blundered .again,.as was  expected.     Ifcrfeels -very sore because the province of .Quebec voted  to retain a son. of thot province at  the heed of the government bf Canada, and abuses people for.being  French-Canadians -and members of  the Catholic church.    Why; should  French-Canadians not be proud of -  sir   Wilftid   Laurier?     He is the  first French-Canadian whohas.been  premier   of   Canada.     He did :-not  win   that   high   position   without  long service to his party.     He won  it on his merits, for he is a leader  of men.    While many will differ  with   the  political   vjews   of  the  Tin-*   Canadian    Pacific   railway  I handled. 84,000. tons, of-ore from the  mines of Kootenay and, .Boundary  camps, during ��� the month of. October.    The bulk   of   this   ore   was  hauled . to .the smelters at , Grand  Forks,   Trail   .and  Nelson.    If i the  one,railway-system, alone ishand-  ling so large a tonnage now, jvhat  will thetonnage of the country-be  when the.mines are fully developed?  It is;safe to say that the output of  the mines of southeastern British  Columbia will, within five years, be  greater than that of, the mines of  Montana    or   of   Colorado.     And  every ton of the ore will be smelted  in British Columbia if-only the provincial government has the courage  to,act on common sense lines.  Help  -thoso -that help .you.

The one industry on which the prosperity of this -constituency is  almost wholly dependent is mining ; and Ave believe ��� that our mining industries are as'fairly entitled to protection as the manufacturing industries of: Eastern Canada ; therefore, we advocate that the duties ion lead  ^and4ead^prodnctsgbeJncueased,,Sj^that_they^shall:be_asIhiKhas those now,,  imposed by the United.States on the.same articles.

From   the   position  they take on every question affecting the welfare of tho city it really  sisoms as if they had made up their  minds that we shall always-remain  as we are now.   Let any individual  or set of individuals propose anything :to-place us in the line of progress and we are met with the argument that somebody will close  up his place of business or that the  wrath of some corporation will  be  visited upon our poor,unfortunate  isolated heads.  Surely we have not  yet reached the limit of pur growth;  surely, our commerce is destined to  expand yet a little more.  We hope,,  and certain men with money to invest seem to believe' that by open-  up a new route they will add to  their own wealth and  increase the  resources  of   the   city.    That  the  time will come when we  shall  receive the connection  they  propose  to give us is beyond doubt; and the  only question for tho ratepayers to  consider is whetlieritwould be worth  their-while to contribute something  to hasten-tho consummation which  we believe the  great  majority  of  them desire, and would be benefited  by,  while they  yet live.   At the  meeting Saturday night Mr. Rodwell  drew a very glowing picture of some  of-the possibilities of the future for  ' the commerce of the Pacific coast.  In the light of the history, of tho  last  few years   it   was  not. overdrawn. Now that the great nations  have obtained a foothold  in  China  we-may look for an unprecedented  era. of expansioirand we should bo  prepared to take full: advantage of  .it.   "We know that we have nothing  -to thank the O..P. R*. for.- rZDhat* it  discriminates against Victoria-.was -  made clear by the intimation  that  its cars may be taken to any part  of- the island where there  fire rails  laid except Victoria.    That it is an.  ������> -ndvantage to a place to have freight  brought into it without  breaking  bulk  is  proved by  the  fact  that  loaded cars are delivered at every  place     along    the    Esquiraalt    Si  Nanaimo lino except Victoria.    We  do   not   think   Victorians . should  allow such a state of things to exist,  aud  we believe that at the first  opportunity: they - have ' they will  take effective-measures- to-put- an  end to it.    We-alUwant to :see . the..  C. P. N. Company flourish.     It dias  been a usefuMnstitutiou to" Victoria  in the past and it will be-still more  useful in the future. - There will be  plenty   of   business   for 'all even  when �� competition becomes - much  keener than it is at present, and; the'  record   of this   pioneer* company  proves that it will be more - than  --able^to^hold^its^.owriTtagainsteallT  comers. -  Dressmaking. Degraded.  A pessimistic '.'''Parisian'--; prophet  has-declared:that the Atogue. of{the  tailor-made gown has degraded the  art of...dressmaking.until there  longer ambition enough left in .its  high priests to inspire them to  noble efforts. The great men of  the^past, such, as Worth, Felix and  the first Doucet, in the opinion of  this discouraged observer, will find  HO successors. For one of the conditions precedent to a successful  tailor-made Is that it be the handiwork of a man, and usually of one  who has had experience in making  the clothes of his own sex. Earlier  masters of the craft never had to  impart the slightest suggestion of  masculinity to the gowns they  made. The writer attributes this  state of affairs as muph to the  moral influence of the tailor-made  as to its present vogue all over the  world. It is a cheaper kind of  ..gown than well. dressed women  ever wore before t and it has made  -them economical in their expenditures. It can be worn almost any-  . where outside of a ballroom, and  tlie" majority of women have . be-  poine indifferent as to the little  proprieties of dress which they for*  merly observed so carefully. Nowadays they; take thei r afternoon  drive in a 'tailor-made, and in the  -same attire pay formal calls. The  elaborate costumes for afternoon  wear have therefore disappeared almost entirely before the triumphant march of this new garment,  which is crushing out by its utility  all the graces and beauty of dress  that used to interest women and  'TiHE^MKOF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is-now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skaguay, U.

Duchesses and shop girls look  alike nowadays to a degree they  never did before, as the tailor-made  cau be brought within the reaclrof  almost any purse, whereas the  gowns made by the. former masters  in the profession could not. 'Its influence, declares: this French-writer,  has reduced to half a dozen: the  number of women in Paris who  spend twenty thousand dollars a  year on their dressing, and-;that is  crime enough in the eyes of the  great dressmakers to put the tailor-  made under a ban forever.  ���     ���  ALL .MODS SOLD 25 PER CENT CHEAPER THAN ANY OTHER  HOUSE IN NELSON.

The story has been  repeated each month since July,  IS97, but the business has been increasing to such a great extent that  the ��� owners of the Oregon Short  Line-have no doubt .seen for themselves the advantages of an -open  gateway policy, advantages which  would- be immediately lost if the  gateway were closed. But taking  it -for granted that the Omaha  rumor has some this1  time; for sake of argument that  there is some talk of the gateway  being closed an excellent counter  argument is a situation that has  arisen in the last few months, The  Burlington has -very recently completed an all-rail short. line ��� from,  Denver to the Black Hills of Dakota ; also to Billings, Montana. At  the Iatte��' point it has effected  through freight arid passenger ��� service in connection'with tlie Northern Pacific for Butte, Helena, Spokane, Portland, Seattle, Tacoma,  Alaska, Nome and the - Orient.  Therefore, the Oregon Short Line is  not the only northwest road which  can be used by the middle routes.  If- the Ogden gateway were closed  today -the Burlington tomorrow  could ;. offer at Denver direct connections for the Pacific Northwest.  ���Its offer��� could and would be accepted by .the Santa Fe, Rock  Island, Missouri Pacific, Colorado <fc Southern, Denver  <fe - Rio : Grande and Colorado  Midland. This would throw the  Coloradofreightandpassenger traffic  ' between that state and the Pacific  Northwest to the Burlington. Thousands of. passengers and tons of  freight would be turned from Utah  and the. Oregon Short Line, but the  Union-Pabiflc   would   not be.the  ���gainer ofcone passenger or one ton  ��� of freight. .That is the new  BRONZES of All Kinds  ���MANICURES AND MANICURE SETS  -With Stones, and Without  CUT GLASS, in-White and Colors  LADIES'.CHATELAINE BAGS '"  SILVER TEA  SETS,  They are Beauties  -MUSIC ROLLS -*  It is impossible to describe  all the Goods I have in stock,  but your inspection of them  is. solicited.

Magnificent Revenge.  A few years ago, while Robert  Stewart wa9 governor of Missouri,  a steamboat man was brought in  from the penitentiary as an applicant for a pardon. He was a large,  powerful fellow, and, when the  governor looked at him, ho seemed  strangely affected. He scrutinized  him long and closely. Finally, he  signed the document that restored  the prisoner to liberty. Before he  handed it to him, he said: "Yon  will commit some other crime and  be in the penitentiary again, I fear.'  The man solemnly promised that  he would not.  The governor looked doubtful,  mused a few minutes aud said:  ���'You will go back on the river  and be a mate again, I suppose?"  The man replied that he would.  "Welly I want you to promise me  one thing," resumed the governor.  "I want you to pledge yonr word  that when you are mate a'gain you  will never take a billet of wood in  your hand and drive a sick boy out  of n; bunk to help you load your  boat on a stormy night." The:  steamboat man said he would not,  and inquired what tho governor  meant by asking him such a question.  The governor replied:   "Because,,  some day, that boy may become a  governor, and you may want him  to pardon you  for a crime.     One ,  dark, stormy night, many years  ago, you stopped your boat on the  Mississippi river to take on a load  of wood. There was a.boy on bonrd  who was working his passage from  New Orleans to St. Louis, but he  was very sick of fever and was  lying in a. bunk. You had plenty  of men to do tho work,, but you  ���went,to that boy witli a-stick of  -wood in your hand-and drove -him  with blows and curses outinto the  wretched, night, and kept him toiling like a slave.until the load was  completed, i ��� was.- that boy. 1 fere  is your pardon. Never again be  guilty of such brutality."  The man, cowering,. and hiding  his face, went out without a word.  What a noble revenge that was,  and what a lesson to a bully!

HE CAVE, AWAY THE SNAP  And Instruments Were Becovered.  A drayload of band instruments  was driven away from sheriff  Tuck's office yesterday. The natural inference would be that the  sheriff had prepared to celebrate a  big Conservative victory, but this  was not tho case. Tho horns and  cornets were the result of a haul  made under a writ of replevin, and  thereby hangs an interesting story.  -The fact that the trouble had  arisen over the band instruments  purchased bj' the old smelter band,  used by tiie citizens' band last summer and then claimed by the re-or-  gani/.ed smelter band is well known.  The new smelter band retained  Galliher & Wilson to secure the instruments for.them, the remaining  members of the citizens' band having' declined to hand the outfit  over. A-writ of replevy was secured and placed in the hands of  -the sheriff, who executed the document, lie only succeeded in recovering, a couple of drums, some  uniform caps aud music. Thebal-  aiice of the outfit had disappeared  and the sheriff could not locate  them, so.lie made a report to this  effect.  The - instruments might never  have been discovered had not one  of themembers of the late citizens'  band celebrated the Liberal victory  ��� too.freely. In his enthusiasm he  could not refrain from telling some  acquaintances how. he had fooled  the sheriff by burying the instruments beneath the floor in the old  practice room where they would  never be found. An inkling of this  came to "the-ears of sheriff Tuck,  who visited the band room yesterday morning with an axe, tore up a  raised. portion of the floor and unearthed the whole outfit. Now the  smelter band will commence regular  practices.  - -  Takes Exception to a Report.

I am in  a position "to state that the afternoon before she sunk she was in  good condition and showed no signs  of sinking.; The party who furnished you with the information  that the water entered through the  syphon holes, lays himself open_ to  the supposition that he was the one  who broke open. her engine-room  (which was locked) and stole the  wrenches -. and lanterns, as . ho  evidently must have been aboard  of her to: see where the water  entered; I may state that the  cause of her sinking is being inquired into;? as it is known that she  did not sink from ordinary leakage.  ���������     ���       C.
