 _u  KOOTENAY  rlas Mines that are Paying Dividends and Hundreds of Properties that can be Made  Dividend Paying Mines.  '//,  �����_;,  KOOTENAY  Mas   a   Mineral   Output   of Upwards   ot   Orxii  Million    Dollars    Every    Month  In  The Year  DAILY  EDITION:  FIRST YEAR-NO. 40.  NELSON,  BRITISH   COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY  IS, 1899.  WEEKLY  EDITION: ,  SEVENTH  YEAR-NO   11  L��f  TELEGRAPHIC NEWS BY WIRE  The Estimates as They Affect Kootenay.  Victoria, Feb. IS.���The estimates  brought down by the government disclose  some rather startling things. Among  them is the fact that $100,000 was expended by the Turner government on the  Glenora-Teslin trail. It will be necessary  to borrow a million and a half, on which  interest will be paid at 8 per cent.  The superintendent of police will have  his salary cut down from $105 a month to  $125; the sergeant of police from $125 to  $85. Provision is made for a minister of  mines with a salary of $-��000 a year and a  deputy at $150 per month. It is supposed  this means the division of Hume's dual  offices aud that Higgin. will be made provincial secretary. The speaker's salary is  reduced from $1500 to $1000, and the clerk  of the house loses $_00 a year.  The house remained in session last night  until 11 o'clock, M.Phillips occupying  most of the time.  . Kellie has given notice that he will introduce a bill preventing the abuse-of  privileges of the assembly, which is meant  to muzzle MePhillips, who has made a  record for himself during tho session of  talking against time.  Turner, a.s a member of the public accounts committee, tried to introduce a  minority report but was ruled out. It  was an explanation about the blank  warrants, which he says was in such shape  they could not have been made any use  of, even if the lieutenant-governor had  signed them.  Wells of the north riding of Erst Kootenay has taken his seat.  The fire department of Nelson is to get  $150, and $058 is down to complete the  Nelson public school building. West  .Kootenay is to get $00,000 for roads and  trails and $20,000 for public buildings at  Nelson and Rossland.  - Decided Against Maclaren.

Toronto, Feb. IS.���The Globe's special  correspondent at Washington says: "It  is an open secret that the Alaska boundary question has been the main subject of  discussion between the commissioners  this week. The attitude of the Canadian  and British commissioners is not that of  persons asking for the favor of a port on  the Alaskan coast. In .the boundary  question they have a well-defined contention, which is so far from that of the  American commissioners as to cause a delay in the proceedings aud give rise to the  frequent reports of breaking off negotia-'  tious. It may be that the matter cannot  be settled, on the basis of concessions, at  the present meeting, and that arbitration  may be necessary;"  -The Metal Market.

The Chapleau is owned by Gvvil-  lim and Tattersal of Slocan City. There  has been about 325 feet of underground  work done upon it, which has been paid  for by the ore taken out. It is a dry ore  carrying good values in gold. The syndicate which Mr. Hind represents has secured a bond upon the Chapleau, and if  his report is satisfactory work will be  commenced in the spring.  Working Bond on the Venus Group.  The Owners of the Venus group, neat-  Nelson, have giveu a working bond on six  of the claims to a Toronto syndicate.  There is no money involved in the deal  but the agreement calls for the performance of a given amount of work within  the year, the same to be commenced at  once and carried on continuously. The  representatives of the Toronto people are  expected to arrive in Nelson to take over  the property next week.  Aptulnaldos Family History is Involved in  Obscurity.  Should he escape the many deadly dangers that lie in wait for an insurgentchief  iit open rebellion, we are likely to hear a  good deal about Etnilio Aguinaldo, the  Filipino chic!'. One of the most satisfactory biographies of tho man yet giveu.  is one published in this month's Review  of Reviews. Coming as it does from air  American source, we may rely upon its  not being over eulogistic ; on the other  hand it bears an impress of fairness that  inspires confidence.  .   " u  Aguinaldo   is   a   half-breed   of' mixed-  Spanish aud Tagal ancestry, with a probable dash of Chinese blopd on the mother's  side.   Pedigrees are not kept very carefully in the Philippines, and Aguinaldo's  family history is involved  in  the usual  obscurity of a native lineage.   So deep  has been the moral mire of thePhilippines  under Spauish rule, so universal the immorality   of  the   dominant   race,   tbat  neither the civil nor religious authorities  have ever cared to keep any record of the  alliances   and    misalliances,   the    births  legitimate   and   illegitimate,   the wives,  concubines   and   mistresses,   slaves   and  abducted women who have filled the long  years of Spanish rule.    Such, high sounding names, as Aguinaldo,   Cervantes and  De Soto, have been adopted by the brown,  and cafe-au-lait complexione'd  men of the  islands, just as the southern negro affects  Pompey,    Julius' .'Cte-iar,     Scipio     and  Napoleon.  Aguinaldo's character is that of an intelligent, ambitious aird brave mau. But  he is crafty, vindictive aud cruel. Like  most Asiatics he is vain and insincere.  Even his foes acknowledge that- he is a  born leader of men and capable of administering the affairs of a country. -������'���'  His father was either a Spanish general  or a Jesuit priest; at any rate he was  brought up in a priest's house in Cavite.  The father treated bimkindly, although  the.child was only nominally an assistant  scullion in   the kitchen.    He   was given  BOSSUB'S   VINDICATION.  ���waS.rekn_,Dlled,,iff"'Tih  M!^hV���?;oan'tiii_ia.^^  ^4tV��Mii^ .i^jrif^fifiit.

There is not the slightest  doubt that the revolution' was brought  about by the brutal treatment' suffered  -by=th eWEU i pin os ;=th ey���wer e=p rac t ica'l I y-  s-laves, uudfer cruel and tyrannical taskmasters. But the revenge they took was  savagely blood-thirsty. The first to feel  tlie torch arid sword were the spies and  those friars" who had taken advantage of  the law. Several who had kept nvqn at  work, whose families starved iu the meantime, were burned' alive or cut to pieces.  Others had a less tragic fate, but every  one Who had benefited directly of indirectly by human suffering, was put to  death Wherever the rebels could lay hands  upon them.  This insurrection Was terminated in a  few mouths by an agreement on the part  of Spain to grant reforms, arid to pay a  million dollars to the ins'trrgent chiefs*  The reforms were never- carried out arid  the chiefs received but $300,000. Undoubtedly, however, much, of this went into  Aguinaldo's pocket.  When the AMierican war br'okc put the  insurgents once more took up arms. They  were Valuable allies of the Americans,  though the battle would no doubt have  been won evennvithout tlieir aid; admiral  .Dewey's victory over the Spanish fleet  deciding the ultimate fate of the islands.  Aguinaldo did the detail work American  forces would have found so trying.  No sooner were the Spaniards disposed  of than Aguinaldo determined that the  islands should be given over to his own  people. He soon showed antagouism to.  the Americans and an open rupture was  the. result, early in the present month.  That he has over-estimated his power is  certain; insurgents that could riot overcome decayed Spain will do but little  against the American forces. A guerilla  war may be kept up for years, but in the  end Aguinaldo will come to grief, and the  Philippine islands will know him no more.  Bright young Asiatics have no business  opposing Anglo-Saxon civilization.  Looking: Over the Silver King.  J.. D. Kendall of Vancouver is at present looking over the Silver King mine  and other property of the Hall Mines,  Limited.

How a Charger Sustained Hi's Dead  Master'.  Honor.  When   M.  de Bossue returned  to the  court in France he was most coldly received.   The king refused to see him and  the king's  courtiers  were quite uncivil.  At his sweetheart's house, in the Rue des  .Saints Pores, .he door  was closed in  his  face.    Ho  was   tilled  with astonishment  and grief, both of cwhich were increased  when  he went to see his  friends.    All  looked askance at him, few deigned even  tr speak to him, and  none accorded him  the explanation he sought.  Too proud to question strangers, and  yet sensitive enough to suffer keenly  sunder the treatment he had received, he  went to his room to brood alone.  There was a mirror here, and in this  he surveyed himself. Tire hardships of  war had deprived him of his good looks ;  his face Was drawn and haggard, his skin  wrinkled ; his eyes were dull aud sad :  while across his left cheek a long, disfiguring scar told where a sabre had cut  deep. .".      '���'- ".������'������   .  He left the mirror and sat down dejectedly. "1 am grown ugly," he said, '"and  poor, and therefore they shun me." He  thought of his life ; offered to his country  and to glory ; of hisl hard campaigns in  America and the Indies ;; of the famous  battles iu which/he had. done his part  under Montcalm and Vaudreuil���"but all  this," he told himself, "has been in vain.  The king, my love, my friends, they are  none of them left to me. The only faithful one of them all���my horse, who used  to lick my hand and neigh gladly at my  coming���he, too, is gone, for I have sold  him.   No one���nothing is left to me I"  One black thought was succeeded by  another, and his gloom and melancholy  increased till life seemed but a burden to  be got rid of. He was a man of promptitude and decision, and,.having come to  this conclusion, he did not procrastinate.  His pistol lay ready to his hand���one shot  and-the deed was done.

He ended by re^  nouncingliiin. ��  ''But," he said fco himself one day, "I  can't fpr'get; hirtr. I loved him well, and I  J3ef_e__e__tjdveJi i m_S til 1 .___Very=well,Jtsha!!F  allow myself this little eccentricity���that  of loving a dishonored wretch. Bossue  remains my friend, and *of all the world I  alone .shall recall him with something,  tiiaii disdain."  He hung the dead matr'.s portrait on his  wall ouce more. But tire portrait was an  old one, and tip longer resembled anybody.  La Ptiysaye, discontented, wished for  some other sPtivenir���spmething which  Bossue had used'. He thought of the  horse: "Where is he now? They tell me  that he sold hlrjti. That hoi'��p fiat'ried  Bossue for ten years.   I must find him."  Onccj while his friend still served with  hinij he hftd se^lr the hofse--tl cjuious  beast, of a dark^yellbwisli color, the product of ii cross between a Spanish barb  and tin Indian pony. He was able to furnish description, of the animal to certain  men whom he sent in Search of it.  The men were away three months'. One  day, La Huysaye received notice that a  horse answering to the description given  had been found in a field in Artois. lie  went to the place and bought the animal  at once. It was, indeed, Bossue's extraordinary beast, the friend of his friend, old  and thin, worn by the hard service befor;e  the plow and the ill-treatment of the farm  hands. There were the white legs, still  fine as those of a racer, the long black  tail and mane, and those eyes, dark, cold,  clear, and fixed, that made one uneasy.  "Strange animal!" though La Puysaye.  He had it fed, groomed, and saddled,  and set out for Paris at a rather halting  gallop. Much fatigue d he arrived at  length. But tired as he was there was to  be little rest for him. A note from the  Bureau of War awaited him, informing  him that his request for a regiment had  beeu granted; that it was to be known as  the "Grenadiers Puysaye;" and that he  must join it near Fribourg as soon as possible. Taking hardly the time for the  writing of a letter and the saying of an  adieu, lie departed for that place; and,  gratifying his own wish, lie went thereon  Bossue's horse.  His new grenadiers grumbled among  themselves. "Is it with that plug," they  said, "that he means to lead us ?"  La Puysaye's friends looked at the  beast critically.    An  ensign  lifted, his  lip. "No use,'  old horse and  his age."  "But why didn't  black fellow?"  "Oh, Constantine broke his leg, and���  but do not laugh messieurs; poor and old  as is this charger, he is good enough for  the: campaign. I judged that we should  be only amusing ourselves here, and I did  not .wish to honor the enemy by riding  too fine a horse.  The officers saluted smilingly, and the  colonel, wishing to see the marshal!, M. de  Coigny, inquired the way to his quarters.  Before going thither, lie left his horse  with his orderly, who was going toward  the trenches. "Bring him back to me to-  uiglit," said the count, aud the man departed with the horse. M  But not more than an hour-had passed,  and La Puysaye was just leaving the marshal's quarters, when an attack was ordered on a strong point where 1S00 men  had been killed the night before. The  trumpets sounded and the army hastened  to respond. All other tasks were abandoned, and, with the others, their uniforms  in order, their arms in readiness, the  grenadiers fellinto line.  Being ordered to hold his regiment in  reserve, M. de la Puysaye conducted it  behind a certain embankment, then sought  to go after his horse. But his friends  stopped him. "Not now," they said; "the  place is exposed; you would be risking  your life needlessly."  La Puysaye returned to his place, and  gave- vent to his vexation. "Miserable  orderly!" he cried ��� "my horse! See  what he has done with my horse !"  "Cie !" exclaimed a captain in astonishment, "why are you so concerned about  the beast? From whom did yon get him ?"  La Puysaye, tired of keeping his secret,  revealed it. "From De Bossute. He was,-  alas, one of my old friends."  The news was murmured through the  ranks, while the officers marvelled audibly. f'What an idea !" they said. "Where  is he that we may observe him again?"  "In that trench over there, which is so  exposed. My orderly must have been  drunk to leave him in such a place."  "Oh," cried an officer, "have no fear !  Bossuet's horse ! the horse of a coward !  He'll crouch when the bullets fly; you'll  . find him again safe and sound." . .  >^}\ii}fMlYffiIia$l another,- "the ,trench  ucoVers^liirirjfhelssatisfied to stay in it; he  ,��'Woht".Co"_dpiputty:^ _  ^AlfJth^^m'Sjileh^lB' bomb "came singing  ,;t.hrfp^hV."the|i"a;ir;Kand from, the trench,  ^.caljMj^VplKpWlj'iri.; defiantly,' "a horse  .emer^^ alone in the middle of  ^tlfe^fi'e.ldh|in*f^ "great open place���alone.  feTiiJE5s��d-d.j,^:wars^bh".his back;.the bit in his  fmgufclijtaW he had lowered- his  lp��p$nmtth^.silence .following the first  li^otKb;;^ only for a sig-  '���hahon .liis*bridleiv��j        ' -     -      "  ^^'PeJ5cowkrd's",.'horse!", thought    the  ^.^Just'jthehrthejplace seemed to fill with  ^_a6*^,*.vf,lj',i'le*'.li��e city beyond trembled as  >^i..h^ah^^i'|lJirfuake shock ; three more  ���^Qn^bi^in".^^^^ of France, and fifteen  *files\wf^ like so much grain.    .  ^ Tlip;*trtim^et. .ftrunded- the attack; and  at thapmo^iiehtj; suddenly, magnificently,  .ne^TaS_��^^yJ?'*pJ-��;-,he setting sun, clothed  the ihbrKeTiii .^pldf ille raised his head, as  the bfa^e.steed does when the battle is  otiandj.fhle%rider;l encourages him to ad-  vahcgy'tKeh tfoldly^ eagerly, joyously he  charged on the City at a gallop.

Wag it the memory of Bossuet's glorious  battles? -Was it the force of a habit acquired after a> score of engagements���the  result of a lesson learned on many fields?  They who followed swiftly after him  did not know; but they swore afterward  that they had seen a hand on his bridle,  feet pressing his sides, a shadowy form; on  his back, and for one brief instant a face,  with along scar on its left cheek and a  look such as no coward ever wore.  The poor beast at length fell, bleeding  from a score of WOunds, but he had done  enough; in the eyes of the army he whose  horse this had been was vindicated. Bos-  siiet was not a coward.  Lectures on Cooking:.  The ladies of Nelson who do not know  anything about cooking will have a  chance shortly to become experts���in  theory, at least. The Woman's Council of  Nelson have taken the matter in hand.  They have inducer! Miss Be$sie -Livingstone, a graduate of a Boston school of  cookery, to come here and deliver a Course  of lectures. The first lecture will be  given on Wednesday afternoon next, and  will be free, the subject being "Soups."  The course will be made up of ten lectures,  the lectures being delivered daily between the hours of 3 and 5 o'clock in the  afternoon. The price of the course will  be $3; admission to single lectures, 50  cents. After the expenses incident are  paid, the proceeds will be handed over to  the treasurer of the Public Library Association. The lectures will be given in the  hall over Neelaud's shoe store.  Promises Well.  A report from the Athabasca mine is  that the ledge recently discovered on the  surface promises well.   It is stated  that  the ledge has  been crosscut for six feet  and the hanging wall has not yet been  reached.   A sample taken across  the six  feet is reported  to have given an assay  value of $100 to the ton, and there is one  streak in the ledge which assays #200 to  the ton.  THE MIKES AMD SMELTERS  May Erect Sampling: Works Here.  There is every likelihood that the Slocan  Ore Purchasing Company will erect its  sampling works in Nelson.   The members  of the finance committee of the council  have waited upon H.  M.  McDowell,  the  manager for the company,  and have ascertained that the company do not expect  any financial aid from thecity.   Thechr'ef  object the company had in approaching  the council on the matter of probable inducements was to get their support in the  securing of a suitable site for the works.  The manager gave the members of the  finance  committee  to  understand,  that  while the purchase of galena ores would,  be the chief concern of the company, it  would undertake to purchase dry ores as  well.   The sampling works will probably  provide employment for six or seven men, '  and as the company does not appear to  be asking for any unusual favors from the  city, the finance committee will doubtless  report  favorably  upon   the   company's  application.  Dundee Concentrates Shipped to Nelson.  The management of- the Duudee niine  has arranged for the shipment of the company's concentrates to the Hall Mines  smelter at Nelson. The ore which the  concentrator is working on is concentrated six to one, giving the concentrates  a value of $10 to the ton. At present  about 40 tons of crude ore are being put  through the mill daily, but as the capacity of the mill is 50 tons, an increased output may be looked for when the men become .familiar with the workings of the  mill. In addition to this concentrating  pre, the Dundee has considerable ore  which will pay to ship without milling.  Locations and Transfers.

' " '  *   .j y\    , _���; 1���^ 1���.��� ^  Was Pontius Pilate Scotch ?       s    .   ,  'I., for .any reason a Briton .becomes  famous Scotland or Ireland is sure to call  him her son. But not until the other day . -  did I know, says a correspondent of the  New York Sun, that Scotland asserted  that it was'the birth place of one of the  most famous Romans in history. But .so  it is; the "laud'o' cakes." says that.within "  her border-s and nowhere else was born  the famous Pontius Pilate. - "  -  According toan old Perthshire tradition,  .;  the Roman ruler of Judea was' born at  Glenlyon, not far from  the place where-  the  ancient  yew  tree of  Foringall has  flourished, as say the experts in agriculture, for .'3000 years.  According to the legend, an embassy  was sent to Scotland by Ctusar Augustus  .short]y_before the���birth-of-Christ One���  of the embassadors was the father of  Pontius Pilate. The Romans were courteously received by Metellanus. a Caledonian chief, and were conducted to his  residence, near Foringall.  By a rather unusual circumstance it appears that the, tnpther of Pontius Pilate  had accompanied her husband pn this embassy, and in Perthshire gave birth to the  future governor of Judea.  To develop the case against the legend  Would be too sinrpie ft ta^k tQ be amusing,  but the points in its .favor are interesting.     ���  Iu the first place it is* tolerably certain  that Cufsar Augustus did .send" an embassy to Scotland about the beginning of  the Christiaii era, and Metailanus was the  name of 4 Scottish ruler who began his  reign about 2 B. Cs The remains of a.  Roman camp are still visible near FOftin^  gall, and there is every probability that  the Caledonians had a settlement in the  neighbor-hood at an early period.  According to tradition Agricoia had a  fierce contest with Caractactis, the successor of Metailanus, on this very spot.  | It would perhaps be going too far to  s'uggest that Pontills Pilate's character, as  far as we can judge from extant records,  might be thought to show the influence of  the natal place, presuming it to be Scottish, but certaintly he displayed a distinctly com promising and noncommittal spirit,  so far as he was able.  Two Locals.  The finance committee has decided that  the city books  must be audited, because  of the  misleading statements published  by the old city council.  It is not unlikely that Gray's mill will  be taken over shortly by local parties,  who are practical mill men and builders.  This property in full operation would give  employment to -10 men. It would be the  largest industrial enterprise within the  city limits, and second only to the Hall  Mines smelter in importance to Nelson.  The Official Majority.

FEBRUARY 18,1899  The city council has decided to cut down  the mayor's salary from $2000 to $1200.  The, question might be asked, if the mayor  is to be merely the presiding officer at  meetings of the couucil why should he be  paid a salary at all when the other members of the council are not paid? If one  member of the couucil is to be paid, why  should they not all be paid. The old  council -required the mayor to manage the  city's business, and paid him. accordingly.  The new council have decided that the  city's business shall be managed by the  council, with the aid of subordinate  officials. If the business management of  '.- the city is to be the work of the council as  a body, then the body should be paid, not  a single member ot that body. Pay them  "all, or pay none.  --/:.'.- This Coast papers are now trying to account for the result of the recent election  in this riding.

This, no doubt, is owing to  a variety of causes, the chief of which is  its great importance as affecting the destiny 5f the nations in  which it has not  been sufficiently impressed upon  the people.   The cooking of food is an ancient  arty and as familiarity breeds contempt,  it is doubtless that from its  necessary  commonness as an occupation it has been  neglected. , ^_  It is strange, yet nevertheless true, that  a large percentage of those who are or  who should be instructed with the preparation of food for human consumption  deem that the knowledge handed down  from one generation to another, without  additions thereto, is quite sufficient. In  the majority of instances the dearth of  knowledge as to the role the different  constituents of food, such as water, mineral matter, fats, starches, sugars and  proteids play in the nourishment of the  body that existed generations ago prevails to a great extent at the present  time.

Since its appearance somewhat of a  " sensation has boon caused by the fact that, the cunimad-  derof tho vessel���the burning of which occurred forty-  one years ago���is not only still alive but has written a  letter finding fault with many details in tho story, which  tells of lhe heroic behaviour and strict obedience to orders under trying circumstances;of a number of soldiers  aboard a-small four-masted screw steamer of eleven  hundred tons, chartered to tako out troops to India in  1857, the year of tho Indian mutiny. Among the regiments was the Fifty-Fourth of the Lino, now the Second  Battalion of the Dorset Regiment, which was hurried  out in three ships, of which the Sarah Sands was tho  headquarters. Besides the lieutenant-colonel, the regimental books, pay-chest, band and colors, she carried  sonic fourteen otlicers, three hundred and fifty-four rank  and file, and about a dozen .women. The steamer left  Portsmouth on August 15th. Her crew were an insu-ordinate lot, and by the time the Sarah Sands reached  Cape Town���where-sho.stopped to coal���they'were on  the verge of mutiny, tho: troops being-obliged to work  her out of harbor.

Besides .the. e there n were .a couple  Of barrels of .ignalling powder for the  sh,ip,s use but this the troops did not  kaow.  Then the fl. mes broke out through the  after deck, the light attracting shoals of  sharks, and, the rnizzenmast fluked up and  went overside with a crash. Th*s would  have veered the stern of the ship head to  wind, ih which case the names must have  swept forward* but a man with a:hatchet  ran along the bulwarks and cut the wreck  clear, while the boats surged and rocked  at a safe distanceMnd the sharks tried to  upset them with their tails.  A captain of the Fifty-Pour.h���he was  a jovial soul and made jokes throughout  the war���-headed a party, of men to cut  away the bridge,, the deck-cabins, and  everything else that was inflamable���this  in case,of the flames sweeping forward  again^w!hile a provident lieutenant with  some ihore troopi lashed spars and things  together for a raft,, and other gangs  pumped desperately on to what was left  of the saloons and the magaziues.  One record says quaintly: "It was necessary to make some deviation from the  usual military evolutions while the flames  were in progress." The men, formed in  sections, counter-marched round the forward part of the ship, which may perhaps  be better understood when it is stated  that those with their faces to the after  part where the tire raged were on their  way to relieve their comrades who had  been working below. Those proceeding  "forward" were going to recruit their exhausted strength, and prepare for another attack when it came to their turn.  No one seemed to have much hope of  saving the ship, so Jong as the last powder  Are  now  prepared  to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  ��� t  .  was unexploded. Indeed, captain Castle  told an officer of the Fifty-Fourth that  the game was up, and the officer replied :  "We'll fight till we're driven overboard."  It seemed that he would be taken at his  word, for just then the signaling powder  and the ammunition casks went up, and  .the ship from midships aft looked like one  volcano.  " The cartridges sputtered like crackers,  and cabin-doors aud timbers were shot  up all over the deck, and two or three  men were hurt. But���this isn't in any  officiarrecord���just after the . roar of it,"  .when the stern was dipping and all he-  lieved the Sarah Aun was settling for her  last lurch, some merry jester of the Fif ty-  Fourrh cried : "Lights out!" and the  jovial captain shouted back : "All right,  we'll keep the old woman afloat yet."  Not one man of the troops made any  attempt to get on to the rafts; and when  they found the ship w��s still floating, they  went to work double tides. At this point  in the story we come across Mr. Frazer,  the Scotch engineer, who, like all his  countrymen, bad been holding his trump  card iu reserve. He. knew.the Sarah was  built with a water-tight bulk-head behind the engine-room and the coal-  bunkers, and he proposed fo cut through  the deck above the bulk-head and drown  the fire. Alse he pointed out that it would  be as well to remove the coal in the  bunkers, as the bulk-head was almost red-  hot and the coal was catching.  So volunteers dropped into the bunkers,  each man for the miuute or two that he  could endure, and shoveled away the  singeing, fuming fuel, and other, volunteers were lowered with ropes into the  bonfire aft, and when they could throw  no more water, they were hauled up half-  roasted.  Mr.' Frazer!s plan saved the ship; although every particle of wood in the aft  part of her was destroyed, and a bluish  vapor hung over the -red-hot iron beams!  and ties, and the sea for miles about looked like blood under , the glare, as they  pumped and passed: water in buckets,  flooding the stern, sluicing the bulkhead,  and id am pin g jtha- coal*, ibeyond.the" bulk-,  -1"     Vt,M    _     A|,,J;UI    DtJu.nUn<ii-   fit    ipXl    ��   ��"lJ'nl��t6�� "O.tf-M-**".  mn_ Trillin    nW,���nrfH.    ��-nia  iheadfalhthrongh theUonguightaKhe yery^  isidesottbe.'ishipw.ere.redThotiso^thatitl. ey;  iW^pnderedXwJjen,thEejpIatejssjybujcl",bncKle"  faridrwr*en"ch" ^outM^  'whple(Efaght���d���o1\vntp���the sharks;-"*^..:;-��: yhx-  "^The| rnizKenmast,:���;as1."youvknow,,, had -  :gone;��the4marnmast-,��although; :w��rapped  Capital, Paid  Reserve  Up  $2,000,000  1,200,000  HEAD  OFFICE, TORONTO  D.

Tire  phbtpgralpli of the wreck looks "exa-tly  iitce that of a gutted theatre after* the  flames and Hremeiilaave done their worst.  They spent the whole of tire twelfth  pumping water out as zealously as they  had pumped it in; they lashed the loose  tanks as soon as they, were cool enough to  touch; and they plugged the hole at the  stern with ham mocks, sails, and planks,  and a sail over all. Then they riged up a  horizontal bar gripping the rudder-head.  Six men sat on planks ou one side and six  at the other, hauling on it with ropes and  letting go as they were told. That made  as good a stearing-gear as they could expect.  On November 13th, still: pumping, they  spread one sail on their solitary mast���it  was very lucky that the Sarah*Sands had  started with four of them���and took advantage of the trade-winds to make for  Mauritius. Captain Castle, with one  chart and one compass, lived in a tent  where some cabins had once been, and at  the end of twelve day he sighted land.  Their average run was about four knots  an hour; and it is no wonder that as soon  as they, were off Port Louis, Mauritius,  Mr. Fraser, the Scotch engineer, wished  to start his engines. The troops looked  down into the black hollow of the ship as  the shaft made its first revolution, shaking the hull terribly, and if you can realize what it means to be able to see a.  naked screw-shaft'at work from the  upper deck of a liner, you can realize  what had happened to the Sarah Sands.  They waited outside Port Louis for the  daylight,, and were nearly dashed to  pieces on a coral reef. Then they came in  without loss of a single life, very dirty,  NELSON BRANCH  A ffcucral banking business transuded.  Savings bank department.

Port Louis gave them public banquets in  the market-place, aud the French inhabitants were faciuatingly polite, as only the  French can be. '  But tire records say nothing of what befell the sailors who "consigned the ship to  perdition." One account, merely hints  that "this was no time for retribution,"  but the troops probably administered  their own justice during the twelve days'  sail to port.  On December 20th they were all reem-  barked on the Clarendon. It waspoor  accommodation for heroes. She had been  condemned as a.coolie-ship; was full of  centipedes and other animals picked up  iu the Brazil trade; her engines broke  down frequently, and her captain died of  exposure and anxiety during a hurricane.  It was January 25th before she reached  the n-ouih of the Hoogly. ..-��� .  By this time���many men, probably consider this quite as" serious as fire���the  troops were out of tobacco, and when  they came across the American ship Hamlet, captain Lecran, lying at Kedgeree, on  the way to Calcutta, the officers rowed  over to ask if their was any tobacco for*  sale. They told the skipper the history  of their adventures, and he said: '    1 '  "Well, I'm glad you're come to me because I have some tobacco.   How many  men are you?"  ;,' "Three hundred," said the officers.   ._  Thereupon captain Lecran got out four  hundred pounds of the best Cavendish  and a thousand Manila cigars for the officers, and refused to take payment on_the  ground that Americans did not accept  anything from shipwrecked people.
