 '" - -%���_  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  EIGHTH YEAR.  NELSON:  FRIDAY MOENING DECEMBER H 1900  PRICE FIVE CENTS  But Are Extremely Reticent About Divulging Any of  Their Proceedings to the Reporters.  WILL DEVELOP TOAD MOUNTAIN PROPERTIES-OTHER NEWS  W. Dennis was found unconscious,  from a blow on the' head, when his  train reached Texarkana. Until he  recovers no description of the robbers can be secured. Two men  have been arrested on suspicion at  Naples, Arkansas, but no trace of  the plunder was found on them.  THE RAILROAD PROGRAMME  'i  The   Mine   Owners'   Association  Was in convention all  day yesterday aud it is understood that business of considerable importance to  the organization was under discussion, though the members decline to  divulge auy particulars of tlie business.   Last night   the   association  dined at the Hotel Hume and spent  a jolly evening.   The matter of se-  ��� curing a market for silves-lead ores  is of much interest .it the present  time in view of the fact that the  American  Smelting   Company has  declined  to   accept  further   shipments or renew old  contracts  on  the original basis.   This condition  of affairs was foreshadowed by J.  N. Hill, junior manager of the Spokane Falls & Northern' road on his  trip through the Kootenays a few  months ago.   He predicted that the  smelters across the line which were  using lead ores as a flux were so  overstocked that producers would  shortly require to iind another outlet for their product.   This condition of affairs exists today and it  remains  to  be   seen   whether the  combine is simply  firing the preliminary    gun   iu    a    movement  to   advance   -rates    or     whether  their       excuse      of      over-stocks  .-.?_ based on actual conditions.  When the combine went into  elt'ect the mine owners naturally  looked for a squeeze in, rates, and  because the advance was not immediate they have not had reason to  -. change this opinion. If a combine  does not advance charges, wherein  is the advantage of combination,  ask tlie mining men, and in the recent stand taken by tlie combine  smelters they see the first turn of  tlie screw. "1 do not anticipate the  American smelters will, continue to  refuse lead ores," remarked a prominent member of the Mine Owners' Association yesterday. "They  will make much ado about tho  slump in lead and enormous overstocks of lead ores, and then concede to the producers by taking  their ore again at an advance of a  couple of dollars iu charges, thereby  cleaning up a couple of million's  annually over and above the 30 per  cent profit they now rake off without taking a tithe of the chances  incidental to mining." How to  fight this advance is a matter  which lies with the mine owners,  but the success of their efforts will  be watched with interest.  funds  secure  claims.    Since   then  been done with the  in     surveying,  crown    grants  etc.,  for  to  the  nothing   has  property, but  Mr. Adams promises to start work  in the near,future with a view to  determining the merit of the proposition. Fine copper float is found  all over the claims, but up to the  present time nothing has been discovered in the shape of a permanent  lead, although this doubtless exists.  The nature of the ground is such  that any development to be successful must be on a large scale. Under  Mr. Tlastie's management the  Rambler-Cariboo has advanced to  the leading rank of Slocan properties. It is a constant shipper of  high-grade ore and has paid $105,-  000 in dividends. The mine is in a  high state: of development, much  ore is in sight and. it is regarded as  one of the big properties in the  camp.  Will Not Take Action.  In response to a query, J. Roderick Robertsou informs The Tribune  that the London & B. C. Gold Fields  will do nothing this winter toward  acquiring the Olds property, one of  the best known propositiuns iu the  Kettle river country. The London  & B. C. had an option on the group  during November and put a small  crew of men to work. Their decision to take no further action this  winter is not actuated by any lack  of confidence in the merit of the  property and it is understood, that  a hitch in the negotiations led up  to this outcome. Report has it  that last year the Messrs. Olds refused a bond of .$100,000 from a well  known Nelson mining man and went  to England to place the property.  Failing in this an option was  offered the London & B. C. at considerably less than the first offer  received.  Owns a Nelson Property.  W. Hastie Adams, manager and  one of the large stockholders of the  Rambler-Cariboo mine in the Sandon camp, who is in attendance at  the Mine O wners' Association, is the  principal owner of the group of  claims controlled by the Palls View  Mining. Company in the Nelson  camp. The company owns four or  five claims in the copper-gold belt  on Toad mountain.

New Yoiik, December 13.���Narrowed down to six sore, battered  and stained riders, the six days' bicycle race in Madison Square Garden now becomes a contest of the  nations. At midnight tonight, or  the beginning of the fifth day of  the contest, only one American  team was left in the race���Elkes &  McFarland-���-who, with Pierce and  McEachern, the Canadians, had covered 1827 miles and four laps. Elkes  and Pierce were the freshest men of  the six, but they were showing  weakness signs with each revolution  of their wheels. McFarland is a  wreck and is kept upon his wheel  only by the greatest prodding of  his trainers.  All day today a doctor was in  c***<stant attendance on him, taking  cuieofhis lame leg, the result of  the hard fall last night. Elkes and  McFarland  and   Pierce    and  Mc  Eachern led the French team, Gou-  golitz and Simar, by only one lap,  and the dogged determination and  frightful bursts of speed which  Gougolit*-*. shows at times makes  natural the opinion, that barring  his cuts and bruises there is still  lots of vitality left in him for the  final wind-up.  At 1 o'clock the score stood:  Elkes and McFarland 184 7.3, Pierce  and McEachern 1847.3, Simar and  Gougolitz 1847.2, Fisher and Fredericks 1840.7, Kaser and Ryser  1840.7, Waller and Stinson 1846.7,  Babcock and Arenson 1465.5, Turville and Gimm 1456.8. The leaders  were 35 miles and one lap behind  the record at 1 a. m.  Bobbed the Mail Car.  Texarkana, Arkansas, December  13.���The mail on the north bound  Cotton Belt passenger train was  looted between Bassetts, Texas, and  this city today. Several registered  mail pouches were cut open and the  contents carried away. It is understood that the pouches contained  several valuable packages en route  from  Memphis.   Mail  clerk  John  An Alarming Eumor.  Londom, December 14.���The Daily  Express publishes a rumor of a serious disaster to the British arms.  According to the report the Boers  attacked the camp of general  Clements in the Barberton district  and captured the camp, killing a  number of British officers and  taking prisoners all the British  troops, including four companies of  the Northumberland Fusileers. The  story is _ not confirmed in any  quarter and is not generally believed.         Over 200 Drowned.  Canton, China, December 13.���  The~ falling overboard of a man  on a passenger boat on the "West  river, near Ho Kan, led to a rush of  400 passengers to the side of the  vessel, which caused her to sink.  Over 200 persons -were drowned.  CONSULTATION OF OFFICIALS IN  NELSON.  W. F. Tye, Chief Construction Agent,  Spends a Week on This Division  ���Contemplated Work.  CRIME RAMPANT IN PARIS  CLOSING OF EXPOSITION CAUSES  MUCH SUFFERING.  Street Cars on  Suburban Lines Not  Operated After 8:30 on Account  of Danger From Holdups.  Paris, December 13.���The close  of the exposition, throwing thousands who were dependent upon it  for   a   living   in the streets, has  created   abnormal   criminal   conditions in Paris and has directed  attention to the dangerous state of  affairs.    The outlying quarters are  infested by bands of footpads and  hoodlums, who terrorize the residents.   The papers are filled  with  accounts of their nightly exploits.  A gang of thieves recently held up  a street car in a populous district  and robbed- the passengers,  while  an   important   electric    car    line  serving the suburbs of   St. Denis  and St. Ouen has refused to run its  cars later than 8:30 in the evening  on account of the danger, and it  was announced today that the prefect of police had directed to place  a couple of policemen on each street  car running in  the suburbs  after  8:30   p.m., and that   he had also  directed to create a special corps  of picked men to   be stationed in  the dangerous wards, such as the  ward   where the dead_ body^was  receutlylSiscoveredy  Moreover, in order to secure murder clues the police for several  nights have raided the disorderly  districts and have made large hauls  of criminals wanted on other  charges. A raid last evening led to  347 arrests. In fairness it must be  said that the present condition of  crime is largely due to the number  of workmen, street hawkers and  others who came to Paris attracted  by the exposition and are now  walking the streets out of work. It  is estimated by the.,statistician of  the Central Labor Bureau that in  25 trades 21,000 out of 51,000 are  out of work. The officials of the  prefecture of police calculates that  there are 22,000 sufferers from the  closing of the exposition who have  joined the criminal army.  Would Abrogate the Treaty.  "Washington, December 13.���  Senator Money introduced a resolution in the senate today providing'  authority for the abrogation of the  Clayton-Bulwer treaty by diplomatic negotiations. Following is  the text of it: Resolved, that the  president of the United States be  respectfully requested to consider  the expediency of opening negotiations with the government of Great  Britain for the abrogation of the  Clayton-Bulwer treaty, with the  assurance that such action on his  part will meet with the hearty consent and support of the senate.  Grise Elected.  Welland, Ontario, December 13.  ���At the by-election in Welland  county for the Ontario legislature  today, Grise, the government candidate, was elected by about 100 majority.  W.   F.   Tye,   chief construction  engineer for the C. P. R., left for  the east this morning after spending a week on this division. During  his visit Mr. Tye wbs* in  close consultation with- the local magnates  of the road and the general impression is that the building programme  for 1901 was under consideration,  particularly as John G. Sullivan,  chief engineer bf the province, and  A.- F.  Proctor, assistant engineer,  were -constantly with Mr. Tye' -  -It  has been intimated that the recommencement of work on the Lardo  road and certain* wprk on the main  line   at. Field, together with' the  taking over of. the-jBalfour extension were among'tKe leading items  discussed and it would surprise no  one to learn that other lines,  possibly   one   to tap^the St.  Mary's  country were also considered.   The  surveying party which went into  the Lardo a couple \pf months ago  to continue the road west to Arrowhead from Trout Lake has finished  its   survey   and   the  engineers in  charge   were-, closeted  here for a  time   with   Mr.-  Tye.     While   no  definite   announcement, has   been  made regardihglthe Lardo road, indications are not wanting that the  road   is to' be completed.     Some  Loss to the Country.  Toronto Telegram.  Independence would have gained  a victory by the election  of Chris.  Foley  in   Yale-Cariboo   against a  Sifton Liberal and a C. P. R. Tory.  Labor has so-called representatives  in parliament like Ralph Smith, M.  P., and A. W.  Puttee, M. P., who  cling to the coat tails of the government which helps them to the  head   of   the   poll.     But   Messrs.  Smith and Puttee are no more, representative   of   labor   than  E.  F.  Clarke, M. P., or A. B. Ingram, M.  P.   Neither   Mr.   Clarke   nor   Mr.  Ingram poses as a labor representative, but they are at least as true  to the cause as Ralph Smith and A.  W. Puttee, who run as friends of  labor and act as hide-bound  backers of the government. The speeches  of    Mr.    Foley    in    Yale-Cariboo  marked him out as a conspicuously  able man, aud the labor  men of  that great district have no reason  to be ashamed either of him  or of  his fight.   Their defeat yesterday  is sure to be turned into an early  victory, and they did well to go  down with their principles, instead  of trying to elect a sham representative by dickers and deals with  either the government or opposition.  -  HOW CHINESE COOT LEFT PElf  Additional Details of the Escape of the Emperor and.  Empress Dowager. '-���-��,������/  GENERAL  PROVINCIAL AND   DOMINION   NEWS   NOTES  - >*---rl  ' '���'-"$ l  *   '*<B  M'GOVERN IS THE CHAMPION  GANS   KNOCKED   OUT   IN    TWO  BOUNDS  LAST NIGHT.  light will probably be cast on the  matter a few weeks hence when it  will be seen whether or not the  company.starts wbr_o_ the - wharf  at the Kootenay lake terminal. This  undertaking will naturally be  carried out at low water and its  commencement will be regarded as  evidence prima facie of the company's intention to start work in  the spring.  The Balfour extension is not yet  completed so far as the construction department is concerned and  engineer Procter, who built the line,  has a couple of week's work before  the line can be turned over to the  operating  department.   After the  recent storm when the barge service   between   Kootenay  Landing  and Nelson was disorganized the  operating department called on the  construction branch to allow .them  the use of the road in order that  by   saving   half the,! distance, the  barges might   make   double  trips  daily instead of single trips as is  _the^case-under=theexisting-arrange-=  ments.   The request could not be  complied with and the operating  outfit had to get along as best they  could with  the old service, which  they did with' extra hustling.   On  January 1st the C.'P. R. is  to assume control of the section of road  between Nelson and Five-mile point,  acquired by purchase from the Nelson" & Fort Sheppard, and as the  construction people turn over the  balance of the extension to Procter  about the same time they can use  the road if desired.   In. event of  the present press of business, when  forty-five   cars are handled daily  between        Kootenay       Landing  and      Nelson,      continuing     the  line       will        be        used        for  transporting freight cars, thus .enabling the barges to make double  trips daily.   Unless the west arm  of the lake freezes over the passenger   service   is   not   likely   to   be  altered, as the present arrangement  is much more convenient for the  traveling public and saves a passenger train being placed* on the  run between Nelson and Procter.  The engineers claim the Balfour extension has the finest roadbed of  any section of the C. P. R. or any  other line in the west.  The completion of the road between Kootenay Landing and Procter is regarded as a thing of the  distant future. While continuation  of the line would give the company  an unbroken line of rails from Montreal to Nelson, the thirty miles or  so of road would cost in the neighborhood of $2,000,000 because of the  recent heavy rock cuts, and the  present exigencies of the service do  not warrant this heavy outlay,  which does not include any estimate  for the completion of the bridge  across the lake. ,  The Baltimore Boy Put   Up a Poor  Fight and Was Never in It  ���Fight by Bounds.  Chicago, December 13.���Terry  McGovern is now the undisputed  lightweight champion of the world.  He knocked out Joe Gans of-"Balti-  more after two minutes .and five"  seconds' fighting -in the second  round. Gans put up' a very poor  exhibition and was never in" it at  all.        McGovern   started   rushing  him at the sound  of the bell and  never let up till Gans was counted  out.   In   the   second  round   Gans  tried to fight a little at the opening, but soon resorted to his backing tactics, attempting to return no  blows, and was making no effort to.  block the hot ones which McGovern sent in on his mouth and face.  As he was rolled down  on the floor  time' after time after every rush  McGovern made he looked around  with   a    helpless    expression,    as  though he had  no idea where he  was.   The last knock-down he was  on-his back six seconds, then rolled  over' ou  his face,  rose to his left  knee and remained in that position  until tapped on the shoulder and  told that  the  fight was  over  and  that he was knocked out.  ===Round=^lt^&i_GbWra^re^=^witir  left.    He rushed Gans to the ropes,  pounding him hard ou the ribs with  his  left.     McGovern  missed right  and left.   McGovern sent Gans back  with left iu jaw, Gans uppercutting  under the heart.    Gans put right  and left to face.     McGovern  put  right and left to jaw, sending Gans  staggering with right and left, following him up with right and left.  McGovern sent Gans to ropes with  right and left to face.   McGovern  landed   right to   jaw,   staggering  Gans and nearly floored him with a  left to face.     Gans knocked down  with left to jaw.    Up at the count  of   seven.     Gans   knocked   down  again one second after bell  rung.  Gans taken to his corner in groggy  condition.    No claim of foul made  by Gans.  Round 2.���McGovern sent left to  face, knocking Gans down. McGovern landed right on jaw. McGovern landed hard right on ear  and left to mouth. McGovern  landed two lefts to face. Gans  knocked down with right to jaw,  taking full count. The minute he  was up McGovern rushed, knocking  him down again. Gans knocked  down again. Gans knocked down  again with right to the" jaw. Gans  knocked out.  As McGovern, smiling and waving  his hands, turned towards his  corner he was picked up in the  arms of his manager and seconds  and carried bodily to his corner. In  an instaut tlie ring was thronged  with cheering McGovern adherents,  who gathered around the Brooklyn  boy's corner and cheered him again  and again.  Gans had no excuse to offer for  his defeat. His seconds, however,  said he was over-trained and that  his stomach had been bad all day.  Victoria,    December   13.���Late  Oriental news gives some additional  and hitherto unpublished details regarding the escape of the Chinese  court from Pekin, published in the  the Chinese press from a well informed   Chinese   official.   The   account   states   that   the    emperor,  dowager empress and party were  insufficiently supplied with clothing and had no provisions of any  kind.   Accompanied by an armed  guard and'  eunichs they left the  northern gates of the city, where  their passage was disputed by soldiers in charge, while the gates were  choked with Chinese fleeing from  the city.   In order to prevent delay   and   cut   short    dispute   the  eunichs fired several volleys upon  the crowd, killing  a considerable  number, and the carts conveying  the imperial party were ultimately  driven forth from the city over the  bodies of the slain.   By evening the  cortege reached Husi-hi-Zien, where  a magistrate, Wu by name, came  forth to meet it and escorted his'  imperial guests to his yamen.  The empress was shivering with  cold and begged the magistrate to  supply her with additional clothing.  He replied that to his regret, being  Chinese, he had no Manchu female  attire   available,   whereupon    the  empi'ess said this was not the time  in which distinction should be made  between Manchu and Chinese and  that she was quite willing to don  Chinese - clothes. -  The  magistrate  then caused a number of garments  belonging to the widow of his de-  e'eased elder brother to be brought  and placed at  the disposal of the  empress, who was only too glad to  make use of them.   A repast was  quickly ' prepared,    of   which  the  imperial party partook.   This being  terminated the empress proceeded  to bewail her sad fate.    "Never before," she said, ''in the history of  the    dynasty   had    the   imperial  family suffered such dire humiliation   and   discomfort,"   blame for  which she did not hesitate to lay  upon   the   princes, ministers   aind  generals, who  had  by their  false  and misleading reports kept her in  ignorance of the progress of the  allies and the real state of affairs  until the very last moment.  The emperor is said to have  =miugledihis^tears_,vith=those-of=the'  empress and to have repeatedly  kowtowed before her, whilst the  magistrate himself could not refrain  from weeping over the sad plight  they were in. In consideration of  Wu's hospitable reception he was  promoted on the spot to the rank  of prefect and sent ahead preparing  tlie way for the imperial party  along the road to Tai Yuan Fu,  whilst his cook, whose effort to  please, evidently was satisfactory,  was ordered to accompany the empress on the journey with a view of  providing the court with suitable  food.  this week a_ad will  protest against  before   tlie   London  commerce.  ill make a strong^i'ig  the Lloyds actional  chamber. ���* of V#��  13.���The*>  Lord-Jr^  Butcher Boy Group Bonded.

Tlie senate did not close its  doors until 2 o'clock and there was  then left only one hour's time for  discussion of the provisions of the  amendment.- The vote was taken  by yeaa and nays, 05 votes being  cast in favor of the amendment  and 17 against it. After* the  amendment offered by the committee was passed upon various  other.amendments received the consideration of the senate for a short  time, but none of them was acted  upon.

It js said that the only union  that Lhe Nelson Evening Miner can  n*ow~dra\v^on���is���Nelson-Lawyers-  Union No. 4, and that it, even, is  not unanimous in meeting the  drafts drawn against it to pay individual members of Nelson Typographical Union No. 310.  Tun organ of the Tax*Favadiug  Chinese and the Bonnington Falls  Power Company has placed a  fandidate in tho field for mayor.  The candidate is a good citizen, hut  his newspaper organ will kill him.  Kvery man ib supports for oilice  goes down to defeat, for the people  look with suspicion on anything or  anyone it favors.  Tub inequalities of representation in the provincial legislature is  shown by the vote polled at the  Dominion election. East Lillooet  has one member in the local house  and polled 100 votes all told. West  Lillooet, with one member, polled  107 votes. Cariboo, with two  members, polled 288 votes. North  Yale, with one member, polled 742  votes.- West Yale,-with one member, polled 372 votes. East Yale,  with one member, polled 767 votes,  aiid three precincts to hear from.  Revelstoke riding, with one member, polled 074 votes. Rossland  riding, with one member, polled  2034 votes. Slocan riding, with one  member, polled 1031 votes. Nelson  riding, with one member, polled  1170 votes. Southeast Kootenay,  with one member, polled 720 votes,,  and Northeast Kootenay, with oue  member, polled 308 votes. Mr. Galliher carried Cariboo, East Lillooet, West Lillooet, East Yale,  Nelson riding of West Kootenay, and the north riding of East  Kootenay. Mr. Foley carried Rossland riding, Slocan riding and the  south- riding of East Kootenay.  Mr. McKane ��� carried North Yale,  West Yale and the Revelstoke  riding of West Kootenay.  Till** only names mentioned for  aldermen in the East ward are  John Paterson, H. J. Evans, John  A. Irving, John H. Mathesbn and  Charles J. Clayton. No names are  mentioned in the West ward except John Hamilton, Harold Sclous  and T. J. Scanlan. It looks like a  new deal all round this ye.gr.   None  of the gentlemen whose names are  mentioned above are connected  with any cliques, either professional, church, social or political,  and all are dead stiaight on the  question of municipal ownership of  public utilities. The next mayor of  Nelson will be John Anthony  Turner.  Lv referring to the late election,  the Kamloops Sentinel says Mr.  Galliher fought a very diilictilt  campaign, and was heavily handicapped by the fact that in the great  mining centers of southern Kootenay he had no newspaper support  at all. There is a good deal of "rot"  in the above. Air. Galliher had the'  support of the Revelstoke Alail,  Golden Era, Fernie Free Press,  Greenwood Times, and Kaslo  Kootenaian. Air. Foley had the  support of the Rossland Aliner,  Rossland Industrial World, Sandon  Paystreak, New Denver Ledge,  Slocan Drill, and Ferguson Eagle.  Mr. McKane was supported, by the  Revelstoke Herald, Fort Steele  Prospector, Sandon Mining Review,  Rossland Record, Nelson Economist,  and the Nelson Miner. The following papers were strictly independent, namely; Greenwood Aliner,  Phoenix Pioneer, Grand Forks  Gazette, Cascade Record, Cranbrook  Herald, Aloyie Leader, and Nelson  Tribune. The Sentinel also says  " Mr. Galliher's cause was further  " handicapped by the fact that the  " entire machinery of the provincial  " government was worked against  -" him iu the interests of Air.  ���' McKaue." That is not a statement of fact, so far as Kootenay is  concerned. In Rossland, Nelson,  Slocan, Fort Steele, aud Golden  ridings, the provincial government  officials did not take either an active or an unfair part in the campaign.          During the life of the present  city council a number of unions and  organizations and societies and  individuals havo laid their wants  and grievances before it by petition.  The labor unions asked for a nine-  hour day and a certain rate of  wage.*-. Tho individual members of  the council placed themselves on  record on the question at issue.  Several ot the churches petitioned  for Sunday observance. Societies,  like the hospital and public library,  ���asked for. donations and grants.  Tho firemen petitioned for certain  privileges. Representative business  men petitioned for the reorganization of the fire department. Numberless petitions were presented for  sidewalks aud street improvements.  But according to tho Nelson Even-"  ing Aliner, a newspaper that de-'  claros, because it has brought out a  candidate for mseyov that all other  people .must be quiet and let it have  its way, says labor unions must  be sat upon ; that thoy have,  no rights tliat should be considered;"  that the salt of. the earth, should'  rule them with au iron* rod."'-The  men who belong to tholabor unions  in Nelson have just the same right  to put up a candidate for alderman  or for mayor as has the little' clique  who mot in a back room on Wednesday night and selected a candi-"  date for mayor. They even have a*  better right, for they are more  numerous and pay more revenue  into the city treasury. But' Lhe  Aliner is.a little sore at labor unions  just now, because one of the unions  that has business relations with- it  compelled it pay its reckoning.  Hence the squeal against * labor  unions.  00 * 00' 00 ' 00'  :fx_-axrx___xT*ra*c��z_:_-_j_r  Holiday  Novelties [*  Arriving Daily,    [j  __-[xiixii:wi,iiix__x__ii_  __���__**; *___ ���__*'<_l*'*___��� <__*'*___* -<___-0*-  00' 00 ' 00' 0-0 '00- 0?

The people of Longwood, a pleasant suburb of Chicago, have solved  the problem of living (the same  servant-girl * problem that is just,  now agitating the west, by the  way) by doing it on a co-operative  b.asis. Ib isa brilliant success' they  declare. '" ...''..'������.'       -   .;  They were almost worried to  ;death by the difficulty of; finding a;  hired girl. Now they; have found  out how to do without her, and-  thoy are better off than they ever;  were before. :  Instead of having a gii*l apiece,  v they have one chef, who has all the  assistance he needs. They have a  dining-room and a kitchen in com-1  mon. Their three meals cost them  _() cents a day a head. ���  As the fall was coining ou this  year their souls sank into their  shoes as they thought of the usual  diiliculty of holding on to. their  hired girls. All through September  they were conjuring vip bleak vis--  ions of winter when home would  probably be without its hired girl.  About the first of October they got  together to consider their wrongs  and how to right- them. Mrs.  Thomas Chambers had the only  feasible plan of relief. She. had  read books full of lovely theories  on the subject. Moreover, she had'  seen some of thoso theories in operation in Portage, Wisconsin.  So  the  good folk  of Longwood  appointed  Mrs.  Chambers   a committee of one to delvo into the mys-  , v'ery of hiring  a chef, to  find out  Cow much help  he  would  require,  to estimate  the cost in  fuel, rout,.  . service and provisions of furnishing'  for forty or fifty people-about the  sort of-meals  that people, iu  their  .circumstances were in the habit .of.  eating���in short, to reduce some of  her beautiful theories to a practical  Avorking basis.  As a result, ten families living  within a radius of three blocks of  the scene of the experiment formed  the Longwood Co-operative Home  . Association. They rented the  main floor of the residence of AV. II.  Stafford,- one of their number.'as  the best quarters available. -They  propose to furnish'meals to their  members at an average per etipita  cost of yo cents a day.. Children  under twelve at half price. They  have eliminated the hired girl from  their domestic scheme of existence,  ..and, after three mouths' trial, confidently expect to live happy" ever  after. /-  "Service we reckon at about  $lf>  ��� per week," said A. H. Kingman,  treasurer of* the association. "If  each family kept a girl .'at, say, a  fair average of $_ a  week, the item  ���of��� service���alone���would���cost���the  members Jf>40 a week. In fuel there  will be some saving, but not so  much as at first appears, as eiich  family has to keep a fire in. the"  kitchen range most bf'the' time.  " On provisions the saying,.' of  course, should be heavy, partly because wholesale quantities can;, be  bought at wholesale prices, 'biit  more because a family of ten is  always proportionately far chejyper  to cater to than a family of two.

In the dining-room each family  has its^own table and uses- its own  linen, china, silver, etc. In the  kitchen all have contributed lb a  common stock of cooking utensils.  By the time the present, s.tbck..is  exhausted it is hoped the association  will be iu a condition to replace it,  so that the table furnishings will be  more uniform.   ���   - ���  Breakfast is .served from 7-to  ; 8:80, luncheon: from 12 to 1, and  dinner from 6 to 7 o'clock, on week  days. On Sundays breakfast is  from 7:30 tot 9, with an elaborate  dinner at 2, and no supper, the  /members arguing that their help  are entitled to the "Sunday afternoon out," which they would inevitably demand if employed by  individual families. So each family  gets its own Sunday night tea, or  visits friends outside of Longwood.  All the dishwashing is done on the  .co-operative   premises,    but    each  * family attends to the laundering of  ;ts own table linen.

It  was an ordinary looking instrument  such as is used for calisthenic exercising, but the special feature about  it was that it bore anywhere from  500 to 1000 labels, indicating that it  had traveled over most of the railroad lines in the United States and  Canada and enjoyed a trip or two  across the ocean. The story of the  traveling club has been lost sight  of, but it is understood that originally it belonged to a theatrical man  who took exercise daily. One night  the company made a rush to catch  a train after the performance and  in the hurry, of packing the club  was overlooked. Next day the  actor wired to have his property  forwarded by express and this was  done.

For a year or. more it has been on  the move constantly, each express  messenger adding a new,, tag and  handing the traveler to the man at  the end of the trip. From the tags  it. seems the club traveled for several months in China and was returned through India and the  Mediterranean to England and  across the Atlantic to Canada where  it was moving toward the Orient  again when it came over the C.
