Array *��>*  INTERESTING ITEMS REGARDING  Prominent Personages.  Helen. Gould has given Maury Sutton,  of Baltimore, a law scholarship, which  includes books and board in the University of New York. Mr. Sutton* who  served in the Cuban war, attracted Miss  Gould's favorable attention when- in the  hospital at Montank- point.  M. Peconiblc, of the Hue Jean-Rousseau  iu Paris, is the last of the family which,  since the founding of the order, have  made their living solely by manufacturing for the government the plain jewels  of the Legion of Honor. His establishment turns out at least two thousand  crosses a year.  Two representatives of England's  colonial governments now visiting Europe  ���.John Mackenzie, minister of lands for  New /enlaud, and .1. \V. Ta'verner, minister of agriculture and commissioner of  public works iu Victoria���liave had adventurous lives.

Published at neIIiSOn, British Columbia.  DAILY (BY MAIL) $6 A YEAR; WEEKLY,  The youngest royal grandmother in  Europe at the present time is the graifd  duchess Anastasie of Mecklenburg-  Schwerin, whose eldest daughter was  married a little more than a year ago to  prince Christian of Denmark and who is  now the proud mother of a son. The  grand duchess was thirty-eight at the  time of,:her grandson's birth, and on the  twenty-eighth inst. she will complete her  thirty-ninth year.  Senor Pi y Margal, who recently surprised the Spanish cortez by holding up  the United States as an example to be  followed by Spain, is, strangely enough,,  one of the leading authorities on United  States history. He has written a history  of the United States in two large volumes,  and his library, which is perhaps the  finest in Madrid, consists largely of works  on the same subject. It is his ambition  to write the standard work on this subject.  Captain E. Ross Smith, of the One  Hundred and Fifty-Ninth Indiana Volun-.  teers, who, ib is said, had the distinction  of ..being the youngest captain in tlie  United States service during the Spanish-  American war, has again been honored  with a captaincy in the United States  service. He was only nineteen years old  when he took his company to the field.  - He is the only son of captain S. M. Smith,  \ a veteran of the Civil war, and his home  is in "Washington, Ind.       * '        .  1 Mascagni has had a signal honor paid  to liim _by Lfeho German emperor. J To has  decided to" have' every  year  iu Berlin a  .series of concerts, directed by the most  celebrated "batons"   in   the world.    The  /concerts will begin iu 1900, and among  those chosen for the first series is Mascagni. The Italian composer's hymn in  honor of admiral Dewey and the victories of the American nation, when per-  formed.alPesaro for the first time in the  presence of two thousand people, was declared to be one of the best, things he has  written. ^^^^^  Theobald Chartraiu, the artist, is building a beautiful home at Nouilly, in Paris,  which is said to be tho handsomest in a.  region of elaborate residences. He lias  shown his appreciation of American institutions principally by the number of  bathrooms with which he has supplied  the house. Their number is unprecedented in Paris, and is said to be causing  great astonishment to those of the .artist's friends who have seen the designs  for his residence. M. Chartraiu will return tcTNew YorlcTigain next whiter. His-  earnings last season are said to have been  larger than iu any previous year, aiiid the  Paris establishment is largely from his  American profits.  Dr. At.tg.itst Ravogli, the Italian consul  at Cincinnati, has been knighted by his  rsov&roigilj king' Humbert,, iu recognition  of his eminent services iu the profession  of nicdieiue. Dr. Ravogli was graduated  in Rome, and' subsequently received  fihother "diplOiha from the Royal College  of Afedieiiie of Vienna. He cauic to this  country eighteen years ago, awl has been  ���Italian consul at 'Cincinnati for about half  that time. He is accredited as being one  of the foremost dermatologists in America.  lie has held the professorship of dermatology in Miami College and the Cincinnati College of Medicineand Surgery, and  holds the chair of that branch of .medical  science in the medical department of the  university today.  Maitre Labori, who almost lost his life  at the hands of an assassin at Rennes a  fortnight ago, was until recently editor  of the professional newspaper la Gazette  du Palais. He is compiling and editing a  comprehensive treatise on French jurisprudence entitled "The Encyclopaedia of  French Law," of which nine solid quarto  volumes have already appeared. He made  'his reputation as a remarkably clever  criminal lawyer in the ease of the  anarchist, Duval, and in the defense of  the Niort brothers, accused of parricide.  Among the best known cases with which  he lias been connected may be cited that  of M. Prieu against the minister of  foreign affairs; the eccentric case of tlie  comic actor, . Chirac; several lawsuits  against Gil Bias; and the Valliant anarchist trial in 1804. His pleadings in the  #oJ�� trial have'since greatly enhanced  his professional reputation, not only for  forensic eloquence, but for adroit and  skillful handling of his ease.  An accomplished young Russian, Anna  Bvrenioff, is now in this country. She  was at first an editor in her own country,  but committing the fatal mistake of  having original opinions her paper was  suppressed and she betook herself to the  university of Heidelberg, and was the  first woman ever granted a diploma in  law at Leipsic. The story of her degree  is that she was refused for the sufficient  reason that she was a woman. One day  the king of Saxony visited the university,  and noticing this woman .among the  many men, accosted her, and finding that  she was a Russian, asked her if she was  happy in his country, on wliich she told  her story with the effect that the king  ordered that she immediately have her  examination; she was able to prove her  right to a diploma-nnd received it.  Crawford Behind the Bars.  Wardner, Idaho, August 81.���Sergeant  Crawford, who  liberated   the prisoners  from the Wardner bullpen, was  brought  over from Missoula by sheriff- Sutherland  yesterday to Wallace.    This morning he  was brought down from that  point in a  government wagon, shackled and under  guard of mounted cavalry.    The prisoner  presented a dejected  and   castdown  appearance and seemed   to  realize  the full  import of the shameful act which-he had  committed.    He was immediately placed  in an iron cell specially prepared for this  occasion, to await the court martial, which  will probably.be ordered in a few days by  general Merriam.    In an unofficial  examination by  captain  Edwards,  Crawford  stated that he had only received $250 for  the job, which had been paid him by Pat  Addudell, one of  the  escaped prisoners.  This story is given some credence by the  authorities from the fact that Crawford  was headed  toward  Butte,  where he is  said to liave expected to receive another  payment from   the Western  Federation  of Miners.    He knew nothing whatever  of the direction taken   by  the jjrisoners  after leaving the pen.    Although posses  are   continually, scouring, the couutry,-  positively no clew in regard to the  fugitives ,has  been   obtained.      The  Inman  Colfax sto_ry is* given" no  credence here.  The deputy returning from there states  that the  description'' of the  man  given  disproves the theory that it might' liave  been.Inman.        ' - *  To Invade Costa Rica.  New   Orleans,   August   81.���On  the  authority of an American just returned  hero from Nicaragua, where he has lived  for the past seven years, it- is stilted that  there recently took pkiccii a-secret conference, between president Zelaya of Nicaragua and president Terencia Sierra of Honduras, the purpose of which was to effect  an  offensive  and  defensive  alliance between these two countries for tin invasion  of   Costa   Rica.      The   conference  took  place at Amalapa,  Honduras,  the chief  seaport  on  the  Pacific  side,   and   it   is  stated that war between  the allies  and  Costa Rica is bound to  eventuate.    The  cesus belli is contained in  the fact  thtit  Nicaragua is intent upon regaining from  Costa Rica the  province of Gnanacastc,  the boundary  line  between  Costa  Rica  and   Nicaragua,   which    is  adjacent   to  the���proposed���route- of��� the��� Nicaragua  canal.   This province formerly belonged  to Nicaragua, but was Avrested from tlie  latter coiihtry in the last struggle with  Costa Rica:    It is likewise stated that  $30,000 in gold has bean shipped to Hamburg tind that Zelaya's father is iu Belgium buying arms for the alliancej and  also $2(>,000 in -gold has been shipped to  Zelaya's agents in New York for the same  purpose.

The brief is  addressed to attorney-general Griggs,  who is expected to review it and present  liis opinion to tlie president. The brief  places the convicted man on a pedestal  with Dreyfus, Mr. MacVeagh ..arguing  that there is the closest analogy in the  cases of the two .men. The attorney gen-,  era! devotes a considerable proportion of  his 38,000 words in attacking members of  the court martial.  Great Britain's Glaims.  Paris, August .31.���At today's session  of the Anglo-Venezuelan boundary arbitration commission, sir Robert Reid, Q.C.,  former attorney-general, continued his  argument in behalf of the case of Great  Britain. He contended that even were it  true that the Dutch abandoned Amakuru  Fort in 1048, there was ample evidence to  show that they had, without dispute, the  Orinoco almost, to, its source .and the,  whole of the Essequhjo. .

Mr. MePherson disclaims the interview  in  a  signed  letter to the Vancouver News-Advertiser,  which is as follows:    "Some time ago' the  dispatches sent from Vancouver to several Eastern "Canadian -newspapers were  so characterized  by falsehoods  and  exaggeration, that even the Colonist, Avhich  can do quite a little in  that lino itself,  thought it necessary to write an editorial  on  the subject.    Iu  the course of  the  editorial,     the    representative   of   the  Eastern papers  was somewhat severely  handled, and spoken of as a 'mendacious  liar,' and so on.     The appropriateness of  the   description  struck   everybody, and  when it became known that the Colonist,  all- unwittingly, had beui describing its  own representative,  men  adhered-;more,  tenaciously than ever to the opinion that  the description was an'accurate one; that  the editor,  for  once,  at any  rate,  had  struck the nail on the head..    The above-  episode       was       strikingly       recalled,  to     my     mind    today     when    I    saw-  Sunday's     Colonist     containing'    what  purports to be an interview with me.    I  did not know the  'mendacious  liar' in  the flesh before.    I know him now, and I  think I shall probably keep him at a distance from nie in future.    For wilful mis-  ' representation in nearly every particular,  I would be willing to back that interview  against anything of the kind I ever saw  before.    Things I did  say and  attached  importance to, are not  reported  at till;  things reported, in nearly every case,-are  not as I said them.  But I am told this was  only what was" to be expected from  the  Colonist, especially  in its present position, for the party to whom I am indebted  for Sunday's issue tells me the paper has  been  full  of  editorials  lately  based on  information  sent   them  from  the same  authoritative and  reliable  source,  as to  some ' caucus' meeting held  a short time  ago in Vancouver at which it was  said I  was present.  "Here again the representative is living,up ,to  his reputation,-.for  if there Was such ;v meetiug   (which'   1  doubt),  I- knew   nothing  nothing whatever about it, and I was certainly not at  it    As the  Colonist appears to be anxious to,know how I stand in regard to the  present government, I  will  tell it.'.   My  position- is   exceedingly   simple.    If the  government make any attempt to repeal  the eight-hour or alien  labor legislation  of last session,  I-shall  oppose them.    If  they leave that legislation alone, and introduce further legislation which 1 can  approve, I shall support them.    That position may  not suit  the  Colonist, but 1  think it will siiit the vast majority of my  constituents.. The Colonist should know  that we fought  too many years in this  province   to  rid  it   of   the government  (lai'gely in their own intercuts) of a small  Victoria oligarchy for us now to take any  measures to  get  that oligarchy quickly  back into power again."  1N,'I,ANI) KKVKNMJIi  SOUKCKK.

Scott, staff correspondent of the  Mining and Scientific Press of San;  Francisco, inis, this to say of the Boundary  country: "The mines in the Boundary  district, around Pluenix and -Greenwood,  are developed to a surprising extent and  none of them seem to lack money for development and equipment. Before the  close of the year, all the principal mines  will be accessible to a railroad spur, when  they can begin shipping. I did not see,  or hear of, any idle property in that  section. The completion of the railroad  to Phoenix", Eyholt and Greenwood will  bring in a large amount of mining  .machinery, which has been ordered for  the various properties. It all looks like  the development of a great mining region.  There seems "to be amplo justification for  the erection of smelters at Grand Forks  and Greenwood. There will be ores to  feed them." ."   Shareholders' Meeting Adjourned.  Owing to the absence from towii of the  president, and the illness of the vice-  president of the company which will  operate the Merchants Exchange, the  meeting of shareholders which was to  have been held last night was postponed  to �� date to be iixed. later on.  No' Corner on Flour.  Local merchants who are handling  different brands of flour desire Tun  Triuunk to state that no corner exists  upon that commodity. The belief that  such was the case was occasioned by the  report tliat W. W. Ogilvle had purchased a large block of stock in the Lu'kc  of the Woods Milling Company. This  purchase it has since been learned  affected but one-fifth of the company's  particulars were contained in the brief  message beyond the fact that Mr. Buxton  had had two apoplectic fits, the second  one proving fatal. Mr. Buxton left Vancouver Saturday noon in the best of  health and spirits in company with  friends for a hunting and fishing trip  into the interior. With him were two  particular friends from England, Mr. and  Mrs. Powell, with whom he was travelling.  They had arrived here but a short time  previously, and the trip up country was  for fish and game and a view of the  country. He was !J9 years of age .and  came from Fazealey, England, about  nine years ago.   '  The Surprise is Looking Well.  High up on the side of Alpha mountain  and adjoining the Alpha mine in the Slocan, is situated the Surprise- claim.   The  big Alpha ledge crosses this property aud  an  ore   shute, almost as  large as that  worked on the Alpha, has been discovered  and enough work done to show that this  claim is the making of another Silverton  shipper. A tunnel has been driven on the  Surprise a distance of 110 feet,  the  vein  being followed, and in driving  this  tunnel over a carload of clean  ore has been  saved and piled on the dump.     The vein  is large, averaging over 20 feet wide and,  as on the Alpha claim, lies fairly flat, the  dip being about 45 degrees.    In. driving  the-tunnel for the first 50 feet, a streak  of clean ore from one  to  two  feet  wide  was followed,  which  gradually  worked  over to the footwall and went out of the  tunnel,    which    was    driven   straight,  at  a   distance   in   of   about    50    feet.  The  last   00 feet of   this  tunnel  is  in  ledge   matter   that  is   full  of ore  and  would    give   returns    if   run    through  a   concentrator.      Lying   in  this   ledge  matter  are   boulders   or   large   chunks  of clean ore, some of them weighing over  400 pounds and the whole drift is in matter that will pay to work.    At the  end  of this tunnel crosscuts have been driven  both ways.    On the hanging  wall   three  feet  of  first-class  ore was cut, and near  the footwall the streak of clean ore" first  followed by the tunnel was again struck.  At this point it was about 18 inches wide.  The'character of the ore iu  tho Surprise  is iiivery fine grained steel galena, carrying considerable gray copper and  giving  assay values ranging f rom! 50 to 750ounces  in silver and fromc (50 to 82 per cent lead  per ton.u ��� The formation  is  the. same as  that iu which lie nearly all the big silver  lead properties in the Slocan, being a Sandon slate with occasional dykes of quartz-  iteand  porphyry.    The situation of the  property is very favorable for economical  woi'kingjtis it can be operated and drained  for a great, depth  by tunnels which can  all be driven directly in on the vein.    TL  is distant from  Silverton two and one-  half miles, anil connected by a good wagon road with the town.  BOER WOMEN ARE MEDDLING IM  Their Husbands' Business.  Johannesburg, August 3L���The Standard Digger's News, of Johannesburg, describes the Boer women as very warlike.  They are forming rifle clubs in many districts, and petitioning the Transvaal  government against granting the franchise to tlie Uitlanders on the basis of a  five year residence.

London, September 1.���The Pretoria  correspondent of the Daily Chronicle  says: President Kruger is not likely to  agree to a conference with sir Alfred Milner at Capetown, but he might go to  Colesbcrg, just within the borders of Cape  Colony.

If he does it is feared that a rebellion will break  out,  as the Dutch would   ;  believe that Great Britain is again forcing  Cecil Rhodes to the 'front.  Capistown,  August   31.���The   rumors :';  that the Schreiner cabinet would be dis-   .  missed caused tin unusual episode iu the  house of assembly.    Cecil Rhodes asked"*l  for a speedy passage of the estimates, in  order to'enable him to go to Rhodesia,  with the other leaders of the opposition  supporting.the -'demand,- but  the ministerialists fearing that the completion of  the  estimates  would  be  the signal  for ;  their downfall, declined to be forced and  after the passage of a few votes the house  proceeded to other business.

Practically ho  Beckoning Time.  The ordinary method of reckoning time  in Mohammedan countries is from sunset  to sunset;.    Twelve o'clock  is  at  sunset,  and this is the beginning of the day. Two  periods of 12 hours then pass till the next  sunset,   whereupon  everybody   sets   his  watch, if   he   has   one, backward or  forward,   according   to    the    season.      Of  course, accurate time is impossible under  such a system.

There are out of  the way parts of tlie  world  that keep very good time, because  their clocks are  regulated  by  telegraph  from 'Greenwich and then the Greenwich  mean    time   is    reduced   to local  time  according to longitude, differences.  Thus,  at   IjK'igos   and   the   Gold   Coast,  AVest  Africa, the local time is checked daily by  telegraph   from   Greenwich   and  transmitted to all tlie telegraph offices in the  colonies.        . The     time    at     Aera     is  only     'if J-    seconds    slower    than    that  of     Greenwich,     and      is     the      time  used throughout the Gold Coast.    Most  any   sort   of   time   is   kept   in   China,  Asa   rule   the   Chinese  use an apparent'  sun time  obtained  from  sundials.    The  foreigners at the   ports  on  the coast use  an   approximate   local    time   calculated  from the Shanghai time, supplied by the  telegraph companies.    In  the great city  of Tientsin,  with a million inhabitants,  the time is determined  by the municipal  chronometer,   which   is   the   town   hall  cluck.    It   is. supposed.--to   be   regulated  every  Saturday,   when������-':the  community  may.set  their  watches,  but  it:has been  kiiowu to be in error at least three min-  UtiJS,  ."'Th!e^etn^  '^&^��4nn''h0itfeW'&ba-l  ".VO11.-.,'      '   "'nnPni'Jnf'n���    *       _a .  *j     ' ��� 0.-D  cd   (ihe,l'%v."dijkii;feh  Biitfsh^set'Q.iia "  lark', specjillly^  vice*   iiftfet'  landed a,  ... .    ���      ���      u.      .���..,.���._.  moved  "the.

A short, thick-set  man iu tho -black uniform of the artil-  =lei^y^==ovei?-=the-^l,ecl==-collar==his==iiair"  was  shown  white  tis silver, and  at the  back of the crown, he was bald.   As he  turned to  face  the judges  there Wits  a  glimpse of a face both burned and pale���  a i'ather bi'oadj, large-featured face with  a painted .-chin.    It was  not Jewish in  exprcssioli,   unless   the   eyes under tlie  glares were $et a trifle close  together,:  and not wholly sympathetic} either; you  might guess him hard, stubborn,.cunning.  But this is only, guessing/: .What  wo did  see in tho face Was sulFei'ing alul elTort���  a misery 'hardly to lie -borlie* tiiul a tense,  agoJiiviiiig sti'iving to bear itnd to hide it.  Jlere is a mail,  yoii would say, Who has  endured   tilings uiiendunible, and   just  lives  through-���inaybe  to  endure  more,  lie walked up two steps to his seat with  a gait it little heavy yet brisk and full of  resolve,   saluted   the president with   a  white-gloved  hand,   took   off  his   kepi,  sat    down.      An    officer   of   gendarmes  followed      and       sat      down       behind  him.       The   recorder,    rising   from   he-  side;     the     prosecuting     officer,      read  out  the general  order  constituting   the  court; then the white moustache and imperial twitched   as  the   president,   in a  small voice, put a (juestion to the prisoner.    Another sudden stillness : then came  the voice of Dreyfus.    No one heard what  he said���thin, sapless, split, it  was  such  as might rustle from the lips of ;i corpse.  As a fact, he had merely given his name,  age and   profession;   now   he  sat  down  again, and attention began to flag. There  followed over two hours  of technicality.  The reporter reads the Act of Accusation  of the first trial ; it is long nnd has been  public property for  a  year  and   a   half.  Hut when it is over' comes the moment of  tho   day.    The   president  addresses  the  prisoner in his suave voice,   and   Dreyfus  stands up.    lie  is  round-shouldered, yet  he  stands   bolt   upright,  and   looks    his  judge   hard   in   the   face.    A   paper   is  handed to him ��� the   bordereau,   at  once  tho   act   and    evidence    of    treachery.  Did     lie     write      that?        Again      an  instant's      dead      silence      and    ' then  then  again  the   dry,  split,  dead man's  voice.    If is the voice   of  a man who.has  forgotten how to speak, who is struggling  desperately to master tones which, crumble and fail him.    The ,yoice rises���half a  shriek and   half  a  sob.    But the words  yon hear are, "I am innocent, my colonel."  Then the colonel's  soft  tones  again and  more answers.    The brake of the 120 millimetre gun, the  artillery firing-manual,  "Dreyfus's journeys to Alsace, a suggested  trip  to  Brussels,  his  relations  with an  Austrian mistress,  his alleged confession  ���a string of cross-examination.  It is difficult to follow  the  questions, but after  five  minutes  the answers  are  heard in  every corner of the hall.    He has found  his voice, and  it  is  deep  and full.    No;  no, my colonel; never; I never played; I  do not know him;   I  never said so���the  replies follow  ou  the  questions sharply,  instantly,   eagerly.    Now   and   again   a  white-gloved hand is raised in emphasis,  ���while the white left hand fingers twitch  on the kepi.   Now and again comes a sentence���-precipitate, almost breathless, as  if he feared   to   lose  one  second of his  chance to be heard.    Every moment his  back stiliens, his voice deepens, his hand  is raised more  appealingly,. his protestations burst out more  fervently.    He is a  man fighting for his life against time.

A Story of the Trail.
It is novel1 well to be too sure wheat yon
would do uiuiRi' given i:ii'ciiii..sl;iiieos, until yon have ti'ied and fotuul out. A
course of action which you knew to be
.absolutely foi-oign to every instinct within you—when you sit down to reason
about it, after the manner of the ago—
may be the very one you will follow
when there is no time for reason. Jf any
one had told Mackworth that under fire
he would be a.coward, Mackworth would
have knocked the informant down then
and there, and liave reflected upon the
danger of his commission afterwards.
Mackworth had been graduated, too,
bntbeing a rightniiiided boy, he remembered that it was to Horatiiis that the
molten image was made, and not to the
fellow who built the bridge; so he very
■properly chose the.cavalry, and heaven
rewarded him by sending him straight to
the frontier. And this was in the days
when thoi'OjjWas a frontier; when men endured discomforts that they sigh to know
again, as none ever sigh for the. luxuries,
of the past; when the Apache and the
Chiricahua were in the land, and still
struggling to be -masters of it; and when
a woman was truly a blessing of the gods,
and might, even under .disadvantages,',
have her pick of the department. But
as there is no woman iu all this, that
is irrelevant. ^

fore long tlie bottom' fell out of his niii-
verfte. and he was filled with tin eijdiii'iiig
skepticisin,    Aiid tliis was how it. came
The first time lie was iindei' fi.ife was
when jfchey were caught at rather ix disadvantage among the pities iu the Mogol-
lous. Thii fight" began about dusk Mid
lasted well into the night. It may have
been the result "of some bugstboo^tories
unconquerable fear of the dark; it Way
liave been some, lurking instinct, or it
may have been just bine funk which
overcame him. Anyway, he hid behind
a, bowlder, eroiiched and cowered there,
trembling so that liis carbine fell from
his ..hands.
Aiid Morley, liis captain, found liim so.
"What are you doing.'?" he demanded,
lie was an irishman aud a soldier of the
old school, but ho- tllci, not swear. Mack-"
worth knew, froiii tliat, how bad it was.
He scrambled up and babbleiL "Gob out
of fcherc.'" tin' captain said. He would
have used a better tone to one of the
troop curs.
Mackworth felt for liis carbine and got
out, staggering, but no longer afraid, only
ashamed—sickenfngly ashamed—beyond
all endurance. He tried liard to get himself
killed after that. He walked up and
down in front of his men, giving orders
and smoking cigarettes, and doing his
best to serve as a target. The captain
watched him and began to understand.
His frown relaxed. "You'd better get
under cover," he suggested; "you are
taking needless risks." Mackworth looked at--him'with wide, blank eyes, and did
not answer. His'face was nob only white
now, it was gray and set, like the face of
a corpse.
Morley's heart softened. "It's only a
baby, anyway," lie said to himself, "and
it is unhappy out of all proportion."
And presently he went to him again.
""Will you get under cover, Mackworth?"
he insisted.
"No," said the lieutenant, "I won't."
The captain swore now, fierce oaths and
and loud.   "I order you back under cover,
sir."     ■.'■'■*
"Mackworth glanced at him and went
ou .smoking.   Morley did not fancy liis
own position, arguing with a green boy,
fully exposed to an invisible enemy, He
knew'that wasting officers is pretty, but
is not war. "1 shall order you to the rear
under arrest, unless you get back there
with the men immediately."
Mackwoi-th retired, with a look at his
superior for which he should have been
court-martialed. 7Vfcor that the scout
went tho Avay of most scouts, being ji
chase of bhe intangible, up mountain
ranges, when you pulled your horse after
you; down them, when ho sliped atop of
you; aci-oss malpais and desert, from the
level of the ine.sr.uite .and the gi-easewood
to that'of the pine and the manzanita.
Chatto's band was at the north, to the
south, to the east and west; but when the
troops got to the spot, after forced
marching, there was nothing.
It went on for two months; and all the
while Mackworth's despondency grew..
The weight of years was upon his yet
barely squared shoulders,-the troubles of
a life-time were writ upon his face. And
it was a pitiably young face, despite the.
growth of yellow beard. He would not
be comforted. He was silent and morose..
He would not lift up his beautiful baritone in song, be the camp never so dull.
Only his captain knew, why, of course—
and "he didn't toll. Neither did he attempt consolation. He thought the remorse healthful, and he knew, besides,
that in such cases a man has to work out
his own conclusions and salvation. This
is the way. Mackworth eventually tried
to work, out his.
There came otic day a runner from the
hostiles—a dise-faced, straight-locked
creature, of sinews—who spoke through
the: White Mountain interpreter of the
troops and said that his chief'-was ready
to go. back to the reservation, but that he
must go upon, his-own terms. And the
chief stipulated, moreover, that one white
man—rone, alone and unguarded—should
go to the hostile camp and discuss those
terms. If a force attempted to come he

The lieiitenaitt, shriigged his shoulders;;
"Shall yon lob, ;me go ?" lie iiisisted.
"Not by a long sights"
"I ^ish to go, captain Morley."
Morley coiisidered, and he decided that
ib niighb not be wise to refuse, "Jliere
was no knowing just what the set-faced,
boy wight do. So they parleyed together for a -time; then Mackworth moiinted
to comeback, and the officers and men
did not expect to see him again. They
watched him go off into tlie distance of
the plain, toward the mountain, .following the hostile, who swung on at the
long, .untiring! dog-trot. 0
After four lion ft) they canto to the
mouth of a nat'rpvv eanyoii. The runner
had given no sign or sound, and1 the fixed
look had not gone from Mackworth's
fit _e. Well within tlie canyon the hostiles
wore in camp. They had hobbled their
Jean little poivioss, the sqnftws were gath
ering wood, and the bucks were squatting
upon the ground or playing monte with
cards of painted hide, around a cowskin
•spread under acedar-ti'ee. Four of them
rose and slouched forward. There was a
prolonged scrutiny upon both sides.
The chief waited for Mackworth to begin; but the white man's instincts were
good. He beat the sullenly silent redskin at his own game, and in the end the
chief spoke. Tlie runner displayed for
the first time his understanding, and interpreted. Mackworth made answer
with decision, offsetting his own terms.
The bucks scowled, and the chief began
to argue. The white man, with tho unflinching eyes, would not compromise.
"Tell him," Mackworth said, "that this is
my will. If he will not do this, I go back
to the soldiers and we follow you and kill
you all, man and Avoman." The face of
the chief grew black, a growl rose from
the crowding bucks, and the watching
squaws began to chatter in voices sweet
as the tinkle of glass bells.
The chief stepped suddenly forward
and caught the bridle above the curb-
shanks. Not so much as an eyelash of
the stern, white, young face' quivered,
and the heart of the red man was filled
witli admiration. One movement of fear
would liave cost Mackworth his life then;
bub he was not afraid, not though he
knew that torture might await him. He
sat looking coolly down at the lowering,
cruel faces. The chief turned and spoke
to the bucks, and there was a growl of
protest; the squaws joined with a shrill
little chorus scream. But the chief flung
away the bridlo, With a force which made
the horseback.
"He do same you say. He go back to
reservation today. He say you ukishee
quick," said the interpreter. Mackworth
turned deliberately and ukisheed, with
no show of haste and without a backward look.
He reported his success and went to his
tent. His look of stolid wretchedness
was uuchanged. Morley began to be
nervous. He went to the tent himself
and found the lieutenant writing a letter
by lantern-light. It was not a normal
opportunity to take for that, so the cap-
tain, being filled with misgivings, trumped up and errand and sent him off on ib.
Then he looked at the letter.-ft was to
Mackworth's mother. Morley did not
read it, but he guessed the whole thing
in a flash. He took up Mackworth's ear-
bine and slid it under the tent-flags into
the outer darkness. Also he broke the
Colt's, which had been thrown down upon the bedding, and pub the cartridges in
his pocket. Then ho replaced it iu the
holster, and going out picked up the carbine and hid ib in the bush.
After the camp was all .asleep and Morley snoring loudly across the tent, Mackworth groped under his pillow and
brought out the revolver. He cocked it
ami waited a moment; then lie placed the
barrel woll  in his mouth and pulled  the
trigger once—and then .again and again.
*       *       *       *.      *       *       *
At first call for reveille Morley awoke.
Mackworth was already up, and turning
he studied his captain's-face with the
faintest and most unwilling of smiles
twitching the corners of his mouth under
the beard. It was the most natural and
healthy look his face had worn in Aveoks.
"Well?" said Morley.
"Well?" answered Mackworth, "I
'should like my carbine and the loads of
iny Colb's, please."
Morley's face broke into a broad grin.
"Will you be good if I let you have
them?" he asked.
"I'll be good," promised the lieutenant.

Tlie Nelson Coke & Gas Company was  informed yesterday that the directors of  the Half Mines,   Limited, had consented  to the sa]e  of  block   95   to the gas company as a site  for  the company's works.  Tlie Hall Mines directors  made two propositions, one of which was that the yas  company should be permitted to purchase  block 1):"> outright, and   a second that the  sale should include   the closed street sections  adjoining   the   block   which   were  deeded to the I hill Mines some years .ago.  "With respect to   the   taking over of the  street sections, however,   the 11 nil Mines  will recpiiiean undertaking from the purchasing company that a twenty-foot thoroughfare shall be allowed upon the closed  streets.    This  action   will   doubtless   remove.all cause   for   friction  between the  city and the   Hall   Mines over the closing  of the streets, and   will   render unnecessary  any  expropriation   proceedings  on  the part of the city in order to maintain  an outlet from   the  city   over the Forty-  nine creek  trail.    The   gas company will  commence work at  once  upon the necessary buildings.    The  main   building will  doubtless be  built  of stone.    It will be  132x35 feet, and 20  feet high to the wall  plate and 29  feet to the ridge.    Most of  the company's plant  is   now on the road  to Nelson, so that  it  can be installed as  soon as tlie   building  is  ready to l-eceive  it.    The company expects to have all the  pipe laid through tlie streets by the middle of October.    Four carloads of pipe aro  expected to arrive within a week, which  quantity it is   expected  will be sufficient  to complete the work.    The company will  be in position in a  day or two to call for  tenders for the  erection  of the building,  as well as bids for material.   As a bunker  capable of holding 1500 tons of coal is to  be built, there will  be a demand for con-  siderablo lumber. ���    - .  Postoffice  IiAKJCIt STltRKT,  Store  NELSON.  J. A.
