 w  CENTRAL AND NORTHERN KOOTENAY  Have more silver-lead mines and prospects  than any other mining1 country  in the world.  -���    . '������'Vtiliy  SOUTHERN KOOTENAY AND YALE  Have  the  largest gold-copper mines ever  discovered, and their output will be  millions for years.  DAILY   EDITION:  FIRST YEAR���NO.  54-.  NELSON, B. C, TUESDAY AFTERNOON, MARCH 7,  1809.  WEEKLY   EDITION:  SEVENTH YEAR -NO.  15.  ;VfV  ,fj--"TT'"B_  SITUATION INTHE PHILIPPINES  Remains About the Same.  Manilla, March 27���11.25 a. in.���At daylight this morning the enemy was discovered  trying to  mount a gun across the  river  from   San   Pedro,  and   the   Sixth  artillery promptly shelled  the rebel battery,   temporarily  stopping   work.   The  enemy   poured   a  fusilade of  musketry  across the river, but a gunboat moved up  and cleared the banks of the stream with  rapid-fire guns.   All was quiet during the  night.  Postoffices have been established at Ne-  -   gros, Cebu and Iloilo, and the clerks left  yesterday for  their respective posts by  the steanier Espana.  Manila, March 7���2 50 p.m.'���While the  ��� rebels had concentrated their forces with  the   evident   purpose  of   attacking   the  waterworks, no direct attempt was made  to capture the American position there.  The .detachments from Hale's and Whea-  ton's brigades cleared the country today.  New York, March 7.���A despatch to the  Tribune    from   Washington    says:   Renewed  interest in   the situation in   the  Philippines is awakened by the establishment at Manila of the civilian members of  the  commission    which has   been designated by the president to represent him  in  the archipelago.   The speculation regarding the   duties of this  commission,  and the authority it will have in the colonial government, are set at rest by the  publication of the order   issued  by the  president to the secretary of state. It will  be .noted that the military  government  of the islands under general Otis will be  continued     without    interference   until  congress makes other provisions, and that  the powers of the commission,  while important, are largely advisory. . The order  says:    In order   to  facilitate the   most  humane,  specific and effective extension  of authority  throughout these  islands,  and to secure with the least possible delay  the   benefits of a wise and generous  protection of life and property to the inhabitants, I have named Jacob G. Schurman, rear admiral George Dewey, major  general ElwellS.

Fifty-eight concerns are said to have signified their intention of sending representatives to the meeting. One of the largest manufacturers of knit goods in this  section says he is very sorry to see this  movement, as trade is in excellent condition and prices are good, and he does not  believe that the combination will be as  good for either the manufacturers or the  public. The proposed trust will be capitalized at $50,000,000 if it is organized.  The Body on Board the Cruiser.  New York, March 7.���The body of lord  Herschel reached Jersey City from Washington at 7.40 this morning, and was  taken on board the British cruiser Talbot,  which will convey it to England. The  special train over the Pensylvania railroad bearing the remains was met at the  station by the British consul-general,  Percy Sanderson: commodore Philip,  commandant of the New York navy yard;  lieutenant-commander Kelly, United  States navy; and detachments of American and British marines. The marines  escorted the casket from the train to the  navy yard tug Narkeeta, on which it was  transferred to the Talbot. Noon had  been set as the time for the sailing of the  Talbot, but it was expected she would be  delayed on account of the storm.

Speculating as to the Cause.  Paris, Mai'ch 7.���The deaths resulting  from the Toulon explosion pf Sunday  morning nunibe'r fiffcy-ifou'r, and 130 persons were ihjiu'ed. The reports that the  catastrophe was the result of a crime are  renewed. It is asserted that a fuse five  feet long has been found iu the ruins of  the magazine. M. Lockroy, minister of  marine^ in the course of ail interview had  with him, said that none 6f the theories  jtdyaude.d was admissable. "Imprudence  on the part of the personnel." he added,  "was impossible, as the explosions occurred several hours after the gates had  been closed. The heating theory too is  unsound, as the temperature of the building wa-i always low and the air dry."  Had Two Motives.  Berlin, March 7.���Emperor William has  received through Herr Von Holleben, the  German ambassador at "Washington, a  message from Mrs. Rudyard Kipling, expressing her thanks for the despatches  sent to her by his majesty yesterday, in  which he expressed his solicitude for Mr.  Kipling. His majesty's message is much  commented on here. It is believed it was  not only sent from the motives of sympathy and courtesy, but to create a  pleasant political impression.  The Knit Goods Trust.  Utica, New York, March 7.���The knit  goods manufacturers here and iu the Mohawk valley have received an invitation  to the meeting to be held at the Waldorf  hotel, New York, on the 15th instant, lor I  Great Britain Gets Succession Dues From the  Estates of Dead Emperors and Empresses.  Dissension has arisen over a portion of  the estate of the late empress of. Austria  between the Austio-Hungarian embassy  at London, the British estate of administration and the Bank of Eugland. It appears that the empress had $2,000,000 deposited in the bauk. Last November,  when the heirs were arranging the  division of her property, they asked payment of th is' deposit, But the bank refused to pay the sum in its entirety,  asserting its right to deduct a certain  amount, for succession fees, and in support of this claim quoted the law which  was recently enacted, to the effect that  all property ^of foreigners hot living in  ^re^t^,^  fcipn*.j3'h"i��fr^  deathoJjthe:li'preignfcl iintfc*��epunt4jra*nz��  "*DeymTs'the,- -Austrojlliingarian ."ambassa-*  .doridisputesahe'equity of.this��rnlihgi".deri  flavin g.%^ha;^.:a"s^  ^hai^we^tp-npQSwi-s  property."^Jpf/sforei gna.VambassadorsTvwlib6.  ?Jiave3S.diedtin|London;"the,��-.ameipi;iyilege  should be extended to foreign sovereigns.  iT'ifeVquestio^  ^ii^i^^h^j^.^|,^:c^^r^:) -v  r" ��ThisVdi��pttte^i%Valls^lte*siihila  lthat[ocC'U^d^:ih"e/deaftli"��6��  jan,de1^III:(^|hp>in,^est^  ^isnJseicifrities:y��3ar  !19bisVdfflJ|fs!_fa?.'i_JbVo^g^  [isif 'W^ll]am?H"a*i'c6ur:B��P,Shehr.c "of*  ��the?excheq\ier, and,intimated that,a- ,part,  flot'the fortune .was.wJllJed'.by", the %'te..eui-  ipeifo_\toVhis^^  Try1        In ��� "     rW\\  "  *   �� 1 '        i__l_Drt"       "vfl ��V'   J*    ���'        "* RO   tP��  "       "���   ^ a*IID*l��,'"n|l    "��   D     n    "  Wales:.:���T,his-latter������Jbeing.,exempt.;trbo.m  &nysdiies:br}^axes "whatev"et:/the"5chancel?  lor.deCjidedHo, extend;;theVLsa;me\pi^yilege  tpth ej 6 th��i5heirs'vah  was transmitted?

Hen- Krupp, the gun king, of Essen,  Prussia, has just made another gift of 500,  OQO marks to the pension fund of his work--  men, thus raising it up to 1,500,000, marks  ($303,750). To be employed at the Krupp  gun works is to the highest goal Of a German workman, for he is then not alone  well treated and well paid���no such thing  as a strike ever having threatened the  works���but he is well provided for all his  life. Krupp employs altogether, including the new shipyards he has started at  Kiel, some 32,000 men. He is said to be  worth $40,000,000.  A workhouse for the blue-blooded has  just been founded at Charkoff, the capital  of the Russian government of the same  name south of Moscow. Backed by pedigrees and with no means of support, men  and women of all ages are admitted to  this unique asylum, which has the imperial protection, and is subsidized by the  benevolent among the Russian aristocracy. The able-bodied inmates lead no  idle lives, for work is apportioned to each  according to his mental or physical ability, and it is marvelous to see what the  good-for-nothing spendthrift and the decayed nobleman, who from infancy has  been petted and served, can achieve when  they are forced to work. Those reduced  ladies and gentlemen are lodged, fed and  clothed and receive 15 copecks (10 cents) a  day for pocket money, with the promise  of more for exemplary conduct and exceptional industry. Only aristocrats are allowed in.  HIGH WATER CAUSING DAMAGE  Along the Ohio and other Rivers.  Cincinnati. March 7.���Notwithstanding  the low temperature and the high winds  of last night, the Ohio river continued  steadily rising at the rate of two-tenths'  of a foot per hour. Newport is the earliest sufferer from high water, and already  a considerable portion of her territory, is  flooded, and families have been compelled  to either leave their houses or go to the  upper stories.  Lexington, Kentucky, March 7.���An almost unprecedented loss follows the  breaking -up of booms in the Kentucky  rivers. It is estimated that fully one  million dollars worth of logs have been  lost in this way at Jackson, Beattyville,  Valley view and other points. The Lexington & Eastern railway has been a  heavy loser. Above Clay City its tracks  were submerged in some placesto a depth1  of five feet, while in_ other places the  tracks were washed away. V  Charleston, West Virginia,  March 7.���:���-���;  The   night   was one of  discomfort andi  actual suffering.    The slow falling of the'  water, added to the low temptature, hasj  made the situation a gloomy one.    Many:  business   men   were    compelled    to   useV  threats to those seeking provisohs and  fuel.   The governor was forced to use a  boat to go from the executive mansion toV  his office in the state house.   Much drunk-'  enness and disorder has prevailed.    The  loss to timberraeu up Elk  river will be  heavy, as that river traverses the heaviest;  logging district in "West Virginia.     Iro-;  mens�� rafts are thrown in loose ahdrgo  into the Kanawha, sometimes doing hea,vy.  damage to coal docks, barges and tipples.  The Winnifred coal docks are gone with,���;  several barges, and an expensive tipple  between the east bank and Belmont was!  swept away.     ' VV(  A Wages Case Settled.

In comitienting On the resignation of  sheriff Robinson, the Miner, as usual,  makes mistakes. Sheriff Robinson has  never been under salary, either as sheriff  Or as a deputy. He served as a  deputy under sheriff Redgrave for eight  years,  and  his only 'Compensation was  One-half of certain fees. When made  sheriff, Sir. Robinson certainly expected  to.feet the -salary that had been paid sheriff Redgrave, but he did not get it. More*  he has not yet been paid for his  own services for attendance on the last  assize court, or repaid the disbursements  lie niade for assistants at that time. The  sheriff has had no communication from  the attorney-general, other than the  letter dated February 24th.  Transfer of Mineral Claims.  The transfer of the following mineral  claims were recorded today at the Nelson  office: Golden Crown, Florence W.,  situate on Morning mountain, two miles  west of Nelson���George Wilson to John  Norcross, one-half interest, consideration  $500 ; Blue Bell, situate on the north fork  of the Salmon river���Frank Flaunery to  Andrew Leander, one-eight interest, consideration $10;    ���  The Largest Dry Goods Store in Kootenay.  Fred Irvine & Co. aim to have the largest dry goods store in Kootenay. They  now occupy premises covering 3000 square  feet of floor space, and in addition have  rented in the same building the rooms recently occupied by The Ti.ii.uni_ and by  A. Enstead, which gives them 2000 square  feet additional floor space. Five thousand feet of floor space is a pretty good-  si zed score.          -  Her Condition Better. ..

Alstroni of Kaslo  has transferred to 0. D. Rand of Spokane  an undivided one-third interest in the  mineral ciaiin Standard, and an undivided one-sixth interest interest in the  Total Wreck. Both claims are situated  at the head of Ten-Mile Creek, in the Blue  Ridge camp, Slocan district.  It is Alexander Guthrie and Darius  Miller who are interested in the purchase  of the Bannockburn group. Mr. Guthrie  is of the well-known railway contracting  firm of Foley Bros. & Guthrie, and Mr.  Miller is a prominent official of the Great  Northern railway at St. Paul.  The members of the playing team oi' the  Kaslo Hockey Club were photographed in  a group on Sunday morning by D. P.  Kane, city water commissioner, au amateur photographer of considerable skill.  R. F. Green, M.P.P., returned home ou  Saturday evening.   Mr. Green looks  well  after the labors of the session, but  glad to find  himself again at home  able to resnme his more immediate  ness.  Maurice A. Bucke, the mining engineer,  recently returned from an absence of several weeks in Eastern Canada, has gone  to the Yellowstone Park, Wyoming, on  professional work.  Kaslo will have a school of cookery. At  a meeting of tho. ladies held in the council  chamber of the city hall on Saturday it  was announced that the list of subscribing pupils had been filled and the services  of Miss Livingstone secured.

"I was ' a member of captain Hiram  Bledsoe's famous Missouri battery," said  a man who is living in Spokaue. "His recent death removes about the last  prominent;figure in the Confederate ranks  from Missouri. Except in the presence of  his superior officers he preferred zo have  his men call him Hi. He went into the  war right at the beginning. The men  who first enlisted under him were his  neighbors and acquaintances in Cass  county, where he had lived since the  Mexican war.  "There were five brothers in his first  command.    When they presented themselves for   enlistment Hi asked  them if  they   had not   better divide, and added  that he did not want to have the entire  family.   But the boys insisted, and it is a  singular    fact  that    they,    with    their  commander, fought through the war.   So  far as I can now recall no member of the  Bledsoe-battery  was ever reprimanded.  It was a model organization.   Its discipline was army talk.    And  when Bledsoe  met general Beuregard for the first time  Beuregard   complimented   him   on   the  reputation of  nis command,  and asked  him the secret of it.   Bledsoe's reply was  that his command was composed of gentlemen, and that he treated them  accordingly at all   times.     Wheu  this superb  organization was decimated aud it was  proposed   to  recruit it   with   conscripts  Bledsoe refused.   He said that men who  fought under him must be volunteers. He  challenged   the admiration of Grant by  the way in which he fought Grant's command at Port Gibson'in-1803. It was when  Grant was   closing  in upon   Vicksburg.  Bledsoe held off the entire advance for one  day, and Grant asked, so I have heard,  who was in command, and said  that if  . tb��.re^wnc_a,.few-;n-ore as, determined as  Bledsoe, the war would have lasted longer.  ��� ��� "In 1-.G1 a command of Federals moved  up near Bledsoe's . lines, and the boys in  blue became very "noisy and did some  miscellaneous firing. Bledsoe was asleep.  The noise awoke.him. Turning, to the  nearest captain he asked what the noise  was about.- And when informed he said :  'Well, I must stop this, for I want to go  to sleep.' And he shelled the Federals until they withdrew.  ��� When the war was rover Bledsoe re-  turned'to hi3 farm in Cass county. rIIe represented that county = in-the legislature  for several terms. He ��was consulted by  the leading'men of his party, and if he  had not. checked his friends he might  have had any office iu the state. But he  insisted on staying at'home.  "In 1S95 there was but one confederate  monument in Chickamauga National  Park. It was the gift of Missouri. On its  sides was the story of Bledsoe's battery."  Pensions for Professors.  The system of retiring-pensions for pro-  "f essors, "whiclris~tb~be"iTrtTocl uc-e'd^atTIar"  vard, has everything to commend it.  Such pensions are not unknown in other  countries, but here in America the men  who have devoted their whole lives to  learning are worse off when they retire  than policemen or firemen. In the nature  of things the work of an instructor at an  institution of the kind, whether a large  university or only a small college, is seldom well paid, and the uatureof the work  is such that it absorbs time andenergy,  and makes the etirniirg of liione'.y by Other  llieans practically impossible, it is right  and proper that years of fai'CM'ul service  ���should be --<-Coghis.ed, and that one, who  for love of the higher ideals of life, has  turned his back on mere gain, should at  least be freed from the fear of poverty in  his old age.   _^ ___^  A Twenty-Round Fight.

THE MAYOR ISWTTHE SICK LIST  And Alderman Fletcher Is Vested With all the  Honor and Power of the Position.  Alderman Fletcher is a happy man this  day.   At the special meeting of the city  council   yesterday  he was   made acting  mayor of the town.   True, the span of his  authority depends wholly upon the health  of mayor Neelands, who is down with la  grippe,   but  acting   mayor   Fletcher   is  happy just the same. As a stepping-stone  to his promotion, alderman Fletcher was  voted to the chair at -yesterday's special  meeting of the council, and for the space .  of a couple of hours he showed the other  members of the council what an excellent  presiding officer he would make-should  the electors at any future time make him  a full-fledged "mayor.  After disposing of the application for'  a gas company's franchise, by notifying  the company that it could secure the  franchise upon the same terms as offered  to H. J. Evans, and by posing a deposit of .61000 as a guarantee of good  faith, the council took up the case  of the waif, Jimmie Waymouth,  who has been a thankless burden upon -  the charitable people of Nelson for some  time. Several months ago Jimmie was  found by the chief of police sleeping under  the boiler in Gray's sawmill. His story  was that he had been left in,Nelson by his  father, who promised to send him money  ���but the money never.came. As an experiment, Mrs. E. C. Clarke of the Queen's  hotel took Jimmie in, with a view ot .making a bell-boy out of him. She learned  that James was not the stuff of which  good bell-boys are made. Having failed  as a bell-boy, James was given a home in ".  the boaading house at the Silver King  mine, .but the woman who took, him in  hand grew tired of her charge, and James  was returned to this city. He then put  up at the Queen's hotel as a guest and has  remained there ever since.  Alderman   Hillyer laid   the matter be-  ���  fore the council and expressed the opinion  that the council should take some action  with a view to relieving Mrs. Clarke. The  matter was referred  to the mayor to see '  what  arrangements   could   be   made by  which the waif could be placed in one of_  the provincial.homes^. -       . ��'.     -"  The next matter to secure the attention  of the council was the uniform 'of  the '  chief of the ,fire brigade.   The responsibility of securing a suitable . uniform .was  placed upon the shoulders of the'.mayor."  and the city.clerk;   ,  .The. council  then ".passed .a  resolution,  au'-ucririti'-r-th'e-pnblic-'works- committee"--'  and the city engineer to make such re- ���  pairs on sidewalks and  streets as.they  considered' advisable. '    This  resolution  was  moved  by alderman Beer and seconded by alderman Hillyer.-       ���  '  On motion of alderman Beer, seconded  by alderman Kirkpatrick, the council also  decided to call for tenders (1) for all lumber necessary for sidewalks, etc.; (2) for  pipes and all other supplies necessary for  connecting the water mains with the  houses of consumer1.; and (3) for the burial of paupers.  The council then retired.into committee  of the whole and further considered the   ,  revised bylaws.   Just what they accomplished is not known, as it isnot the wish,  of the men who constitute the present3  council that the ratepayers should know   '  what transpires in committee until they,  are ready to railroad the committee's findings, throughthe council.  When the council came out of the committee of the whole they discussed the  police   protection and. decided  that the  present service is not satist'actory:   They   accordingly passed a resolutioiflibtifyihg  the police commissioners that they are not  satisfied with the present arrangement,  and the same will be forwarded to the  commissioners at their next meeting.  Whether the resolution of the council  will lead to the appointment of another  constable or to the retirement of chief  McKinnon will depend upon what view  the police commissioners take of the  matter.    The Madhi'-i' Body Thrown into the" Nile.  A discussion-in t��lie"hpuse of cominpns^  .  brought out the fact that  tlih Madhils-  body wtts Cast into tile Nile.   TPhe Sirdar  defends   this   as necessary to destroy a  barbarous and faiutt.cal superstition, exv  plaining   that  otherwise   the DfervisheS"  would believe that the British feared the  Madhi's shade.   This  matter will  be debated when the vote to grant the sirdar  ��30,000 comes up in   parliament.     It is  thought   that the   sirdar in growing to  understand   the sentiments of the East  lost  touch   with the  sentiments of the  West. It is recalled that after the Restoration Charles If. exhuriled the bodies Of  Cromwell, Ireton and Bradshaw, and they  were   dragged   to   Tyburn.     A   leading  London paper of that day adds :      "The  three carcasses were then pulled out of  their coffin���. and hanged on a triple tree  until sunset. They were then taken down,  the  heads   cut off, and the loathesome  trunk'!, thrown into a deep hole under the  gallows."   Wages Raised Ten Per Cent.  In  one sweep, the Massey-Harris company of Toronto has added  upwards Of  $10,000 a month to its pay roll.   Notices  ������  have been posted up in the Mussey-U-trj'is v  factories in Toronto and Brantford, notifying the workmen that every employee  will   receive   a   10 per  cent increase in  wages, dating from March 1st.   There are  700 hands employed at Brantford and 1500  in Toronto.   The steady advance of good  times is responsible for the voluntary in-  I crease of wages. THE TRIBUNE:  NELSON, B.

TUESDAY. ...  .MARCH 7, 1893  The Canadian Pacific Railway Company does not confine itself to strangling  towns that will not do its bidding. It  strangles smelters that compete with  smelters under its control. The Hall  Mines smelter at Nelson is to be strangled  because it conies into competition with  the Canadian Pacific smelter at Trail. The  Hall Mines smelter is not to get a pound  of ore from any point on the Canadian  .Pacific railway. The reason therefor is  tersely expressed by a high official of  the railway  company.   He  says:   "We  -.��������. " would be blanked fools to allow smelters  "and sampling works at Nelson to com-  ��� " pete with usfor ores that we need our-  " selves."     ���-' ,.";."--       .:  The opponents of the Semlin govern-  ; ment  are making  a great  cry  because  attorney-general Martin and finance-minister Cotton  intend to look after their  private   business   affairs  at Vancouver.

CURRENT RATK OF INTEREST PAID  SIENKIEWIOZ'S   NEW   NOVEL.  A Powerful Story of Poland in the Fourteenth  Century.  For more than a year"��� Henryk Sienkie-  wicz, the author of "Quo Vudis," has been  engaged in Warsaw writing the noyel  which is to follow that famous work.  Months before he began to write he was  shaping his story and fitting ib to the  period of Polish history with which it  deals. Like all of Sienkiwiess's novels, the  book is first appearing in installments in  a Polish literary publication. The title of  the new work is "Kizyzaey" (Teutonic  Knights), and the installments have been  appearing for over a year in the Warsaw  Tygodnikltlustrowauy (Illustrated Weekly). The distinguished novelist is nob  rapid iu literary composition. His preparation, is most minute and laborious.  At times he is in the mood to write much  and agaiu the weekly product is small.  Sometimes the regular instalment fails to  appear and again it may be unusually  short. The first three numbers of the  Tygodnik Illustrowauy this year did not  contain a word of the story. The novelist  was a member of the committee in charge  of the ceremony of unveiling tho monument to Adam Mickiewiez (1799-1S55), the  celebrated Polish poet, aiid he wrote this  note to the publisher of the Tygodnik,  which was made public:  Dear Sir: Owing .otliopres.iircof various occupations  incidental to UiouuvciliiiKof the monument, lam unable  to send you at present tlio manuscript of "K\-/.y/j\cy."  Sincerely .yours.   . ' II.-SLl-NKIKWlC'/i.  He is writing the novelin the beautifu[  home where he ,and his two" motherless  11 children   reside.     The   work deals  with  * tliat peViod of Polish history when the  marriage "of the young, and beautiful  queen of Poland, IIedwiga(l:iSG), to the  prince of ^Lithuania brought the last  heathen couutryin Europe into Christianity and united the two, countries. This  event gave the deathblow to-the. Order oi'  ' Teutonic Knights, which" was then at the  height of its power and prosperity.-  Alauy educated Poles say thab the novels  of Sieukiewicz dealing with Polish history give so accurate, philosophical and  powerful a. delineation of ' the tragic  drama bf the ill-fated kingdom, as wholly  to commend them to theJ attention of  historical students. The new novel, like  its predecessers, is full of the atmosphere  and color'of the times wliich the author  describes. The. reader-, sees fourteenth  century life on the borderland of civilization. Many of the incidents, such as that  of a great boar hunt, the death of the  queen, a terrific storm, ih which men and  horses perish under the snow, and others,  show all!bthe masterful descriptive power  Wj-ich/ has   made   tikis jtiovislisV famous.  =T-h"ef fi ctfen-il 1 li m .iii es=the-cshai*acter=a n d  deeds of hif_tori.c personages and the titties  in which they lived. JLet its briefly recall  the." story of the Teutonic Knights with  whose acts arid final disaster the novel  haaimuchto do. , d  The Order of Teutonic -Knights was one  Of the hiiiitary and religious orders to  which t'liei fcrusades gttve birth. The  knights Vvere required to be of noble par  outage,, to defend the Christian religion  and; promulgate it with all their might.  They wore a wjiite mtiutlp with a black  cro^s on the bj'ea=-b. The order rose to  jgr.re.a1. power aiicj influence ahd ehjjoyed  the fullest t'onlidence of both the Pope  and the Gerriiau eiiiperor. It saw tlie  hopelessiie-iii of further af.fce.upts to fcxpel  the Mohamtnedans from the Holy Land  and eagerly hailed the opportunity to  transfer its activity to another sphere,  which was afforded by an invitation to  make war upon the heathen Prussians  and Lithuanians. The Knights conquered  all of Polish Prussia, as it is now Called,  invaded the Polish territory and overran  the greater part of Pomerauia. They  built fortified castles in all their territories. The grand-mastership of Wein-  rich von Kniprode (1351S2) was the most  prosperous period in the history of the  order.    Knights  from England, .France  ^and Burgundy enlisted in their ranks to  'fight the heathen. The union of Poland  and Lithuania in 138G struck at the root  of the order's prosperity by depriving it  of its mission, when there were no more  heathens within reach to "convert" and  despoil. The audacity of these armed  monks was without limit. They converted   souls   by  fire and  sword.     The  ��� bright and glorious era of Poland dawned  only after the order had been crushed.  The final blow was given in 1454, when  Casimir IV. of Poland defeated three formidable enemies' of his kingdom. The  Prussians, also wearied by the oppression  of these fanatical brigands, placed themselves under king Casimir's protection.  The Knights were conquered after twelve  years' struggle and finally submitted.  They had to surrender Dan.ts.ig and Pom-  . erania. At one time their possessions extended from the Oder on the west to Finland on the east, with a population of two  Are now prepared to iss.ue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  to three million.=, and for a period the  order played the leading role in the political history of northern Europe.  Ib is not likely that over half of the  novel has yet been published, Jbut a summary of some of the incident s; thus far related will give au idea of the dramatic  material with which Sienkiewicz is dealing:  A young Polish knight, Zbyjzko, aceoni-.  panied by his'uncle, Maciek, is on his way  to Cracow, the capital of Poland. They  stop at. an inn for the night, and while  there the princess of Mazowsze, sister of  the king, arrives with her suite. The  princess is on her way to Cracow as the  guest of the king, to celebrate the festivities in honor of the expected arrival of  an heir to tlie throne.  When the princess arrives; Zbyszko and  his uncle wish to withdraw, bub the princess graciously bids them to remain, aud  mingle with tlie gentlemen of her suite.  Among the ladies accompanying the princess is a young girl, Danuska, the favorite,  of the. princess. Zbyszko is struck with  her beauty aud learns her history. She  is the daughter of a nobleman, Jurand de  Spyehowo. Jurand ��had a young and  beautiful wife, aud dnringhis absence the  Teutonic Knights invaded and pillaged  his castle, and one cf the Germans was  about to take the young wife away on his  horse when she died of fright. The grief-  stricken husband took his little daughter  to the court of the princess of Mazowsze  and begged her to be a mother to JDan-  uska, while he devoted his life to revenge.  No German who fell into his hands received mercy. There were terrible dungeons in his castle, and in them the captive Teutonic Knights perished miserably.  When Zbyszko hears how Danuska had  become motherless lie; vows that he will  slay no less than three knights iu honorable fight.  The following morning the princess's  court continues its -journey toward  Cracow and Zbyszko aud his uncle go  with them. Approaching the capital,  they see a splendid knight on a fine horse  and recognize him as a Teutonic Knight.  The young and impetuous Zbyszko, spurring his horse, dies at, the knight, "draws  his sword and tells him to defend himself.  The German does not move or speak, but  just-as Zbyszko is about to thrust him  through, his hand is stayed by one of the  gentlemen of the priucess's suite. All  realize the serious offence the youth has.  committed through his stupidity. ; The  knight, Voh Loeweby name, is the ambassador from the grand master of the  Teutonic Knights oh his way to ��� the  festivities at the Polish court. One of the  gentlemen tries, to explain-matters, and-  JLoew'e says he will forgive the youth if  the latter begs his pardon on foot'aud  without'.helmet. This Zbyszko iudig-  mmbly refuses to do, saying he would not.  comply if he had three heads to lose. The  princess tells Zbyszkoto enlist as a gentleman of her court, so thab she may more  easily protect.him aud ask pardon iu his  behalf. He accepts with enthusiasm, especially as he wishes to remain -near  Danuska.  At dinner in thekiug's palace Zbyszko  is standing behind the chairs of the princess and Danuska. He sees Von Loewe  among the guests, but the knight did not  .��eem to recognize him. Von Loewe remarks that Poland is a barbarous land,  for a country caunot be civilized where  the life of an ambassador from a friendly  power is not safe. The king tells him this  is hot true, whereupon Von Loewe says  thab^he^was ou=bhe=pdinb=of^beihgT_-rur^  dered the.previous day within sight of  the capital. The king, in terrible anger,  demands the name of the m"rtns and s_vys  that even were he the first gentleman in  the land he should die for having so disr  graced his country.

Danuska, almost paralyzed during the scene,  suddeuly drops to her knees before: the  king and begs; "King, O merciful king,  forgive Zbyszko." Everyone is moved es>  eept the ambassador. The king refused  to forgive the youth unless Voir Loewe  first forgives him. The princess joins her  prayers to those of Others, begging the  ambassador to forgive the young man.  Von Loewe answers:  "As a monk and a servitor of Christ I  forgive him from the bottom of my heart,  but as the envoy of the Grand Master of  my order I cannot and will nob forgive  him* for in my person he has insulted the  whole order, iind if he be not punished all  civilized Europe will know how ambassadors are treated in this country." t  A few days later a daughter -is born to  the queen, and soon after the child's death  is announced to the anxious people.V Ib is  not long before a black flag from bhe  highest turret of the castle and the ringing of bells in all the Churches announces  the sadnews of the queen's death.

The knights are determined to  get Von Berger out ot Jurand's dungeon,  and Danvelr,  one   of  the   knights,  hits  upon  the plan of kidnapping Danuska,  taking her to the fortress of Szczecin, and  then Jurand, who loves his daughter intensely,   will give up his prisoner.   One  evening a message comes from Jurand,  bidding his daughter to join him  at his  castle, as he is ill and lonely.   As Zbyszko  is too ill to accompany her, they decide to  wed at once. They are wedded, and immediately   after    the   ceremony    Danuska  starts home with an escort.   Then Jurand  suddenly arrives at the princess's court to  see his daughter.   He had seut no message to his daughter, and declares that she  has  been kidnapped.   The despair of all  is terrible, and the prince is beside himself with anger.   That these monks had  pushed their audacity so far as to kidnap  a girl from his own court and one who  was under his protection was monstrous,  and he vows to help the Polish king fight  the Teutons.   Jurand and Zbyszko start  for Jurand's castle to get men and search  for the girl.   Meanwhile Danuska is taken  by   the treacherous knights to Szczecin  foitress; Danvelt, Rotgier and Godfryd  are   the guilty   men, and   as they know  thab complaint .will be made to the Grand  Master and  the Pope,   they contrive to  plan to make it appear that they are not  the kidnappers.  They send a messenger to Jurand with  word:  "Your daughter is safe in the hands of  the pious knights. She will be -returned  to yon if you will release Von Berger;  send a message to the prince telling him  that the knights were not responsible.for  the disappearance of Danuska, and then  come unarmed and alone to Szczecin,  where the girl will.be giveu to you:"  Jurand agrees to all. He sends Zbyszko  to the prince to say that the girl was kidnapped by robbers and not by knights, and  that she will^soon. be home. Then he  starts for the Knights' fortified castle,  constantly praying that God will give him  patience to endure the humiliation he will  undergo for the sake of releasing his child.  He arrives at the castle, bub is not adtriib-  ted until he spends twenty-four hours at  the gate like a dog. Then the proud  nobleman is taken before the assembled  brothers in the large hall. When tlieir  lifelong enemy stands thus before them  they glory in his humiliation, but Jurand  with superhuman effort endures. everything for the sake of his child. In a trembling voice he says he has fulfilled his  part of the agreement and begs for  Danuska. A woman is brought into his  presence,' but she is nob his daughter.  Only then does he realize the enormity of  their treachery and their infamous  scheme. Still controlling himself he asks  Danvelt to stop his joking and give him  his daughter. Danvelt whispers in his  ear:  "If eyer,~you*geb her back," ib will be with  my-bastardV" -'      J_  Jurand seizes Danvelt, throws him high  in'the air, and the lifeless-body of the  knight falls to the stone floor, his brains  spattering the white mantles of the-Teutons: Then he"snatches a sword a knight  and begins a terrible slaughter right and  left, killing many before he is overpowered, put in chains aud thrown into a  dungeon.,   . .

The jury case of Oassellvs. Cockle occupied the greater part of the sessioii of the  county court today. This is the Kaslo  case which originally involved $2, but  which represents a good deal more now  since it required the services of two Kaslo  lawyers, a number of Kaslo witnesses, a  Nelson jury of nine men and a judge of  the county court to determine the question at issue.  The plaintiff in the action is a Bliss  Cassell, a good looking girl from Linds-ay,  Ontario, who came to Kaslo to accept employment and became involved in a law  suit before she got out of the service.  Her interests in the case were ably looked  after by W. O. MeAnn of Kaslo, while G.  E. Martin also of Kaslo looked after the  case for the defendant Cockle.  There were ten men drafted as jurors  for the case, and all were present save J.  H. Matheson, who is suffering from an attack of la grippe. * W. A. ThurmaD, F.  W. Swannell and John Miles were drawn  for   the jury,  but were asked to stand  aside; James McDonald was not drawn,  aud the jury was therefore composed of  James JNeelauds,   John   Paterson, T.  A.  Mills, F. J. Squire and Harry Stutter.  To  them lawyer lie Ann related  the grievances of the  pretty   plaintiff.   He   said  that while she was at Lindsay,  Ontario,  she was,induced to come to Kaslo to accept  employment  in   the hotel   run  by  Messrs. Cockle & Papworth,  an offer ol  $25 a month salary having been made.  VVhen she arrived at Kaslo there was no  position, as intimated, vacant for her, and  she went into the kitchen of the hotel as  second cook.   She worked from November 12th to January ISth in  this capacity  without any salary being fixed.   When  she   asked    to    have   her   salary   fixed  Cockle said that he could not pay more  than $25 per mouth.   The plaintiff said  she would not work for this amount' and  Cockle said he would see his partner. The  partner iu an interview with the plaintift  admitted that $25 was not sufficient payment for the work performed, and asked  her to remain for a while and see if the  matter could not be adjusted.   On- Thursday, the 19th of January, the matter was  not adjusted and the plaintiff quit work.  She remained iu the hotel Thursday evening aiid had breakfast in the kitchen on  the following morning and then left the  house.    Wheu   she   applied   to   get  her  trunks they were refused her uuiess   she  paid a balance  of  $J9.-13, which   Cockle  claimed was owing him  out of the $G2 SO  advanced to the plaintiff for transportation from Lindsay to Kaslo.   An aclibn  was brought against the hotel proprietor  and the plaintiff's trunks .-were recovered.  This was  where the  case   stood when it  was brought up .in the court this.mornii.g.  The case came before judge Form and a  jury  tliis- morning, as an  action- on  t__.e=-  part-,   of     Cockle      toj L   recover      the  trunks'  under   the   Innkeepers" Act, ,in"  wliich   the-- contention   was. raised, that  after  the cook refused to work she 'became a guest of the;hotel and owed $2 for  lodging.   The: defendant.also asked   for  $50 damages for breach of contract-and  $19.43 representing the amount'owing-out  of the sum advanced :the cook for railway  fare.-."'.'- ' -"'   '���  *" The-plaintiff on- -the other hand asked-  the court to fix as a'reasonable wage for  a' second cook .a wage'olV^'lo "per"'month,  this; would enable the plaintiff to repay  the advance for 'transportation aud leave  -"a balance of $27 coming to her as wages  for the time she worked. With respect  to the item of $2 the defendant denied  that she was a guest of the house and was  therefore not liable.  This is the tangle "which the jury has to  straighten out, and the case was still  ���proceeding with all , due solemnity wheu  the Tribune went to press.  ^Meeti-.-_pf;the^B6ard"p��Trade Gouncil. ���  A. %. l-ipclgin-iVpresided at the iheetihig  pi  the council   of  thS  Soufch KoOtfenay  _33oard of Trade last ejvehjng, -when_the_  toria, and only white labor is employed.
