 STEAMER STRIKES AN ICEBERG  Off Newfoundland.  Nrw York, September 5.���Passengers  who arrived here on tho Anchor Hue  steamship City of Home from Glasgow  yesterday, told of an exciting experience  they had on Thursday last oil" the banks  of Newfoundland, when the vessel ran  into an iceberg in a dense fog and had a  narrow escape from adding another to  the list of frightful disasters at son,.' Tho  City of Rome left Glasgow on August  20th and had a fair and uneventful voyage until Thursday, August 31st, when  early in the day she ran into a thick  heavy fog. Her speed was reduced to  about nine knots an hour and extra, lookouts were posted. As the day wore on  the air became cold, and fearing icebergs might be the cause  Captain ..Hugh Young and several of  his officers remained constantly on the  bridge. The entire crew was held in  readiness for any emergency, but no word  of the anxiety of the ship's officers roach-  . ed the passengers, and those in the first  cabin wlio ate at the first table were at  dinner when the collision occurred. At  about 5.50 o'clock captain Young was  pacing the bridge, occasionally stopping  to peer into the gloom, or to speak to one  of the other officers, and by his direction  one of them had just signalled the  engineer to slow down still more, when  the lookout on tlie starboard bow waved  liis hands and shouted "Ice dead ahead,  sir."  ���Within a second the bells were clanging in the engine room and the City of  Rome was backing at full speed. Meantime all the ' officers except the captain  had sprung from the bridge, and in response to their orders the crew were taking their posts tit the boats and elsewhere. When the vessel struck'-every  man was in his place and the boats were  being made ready to drop over the sides.  All this was done in a few seconds, aud  almost at the same time .there caine  'a -sharp, quick shock, under" . which  the vessel reeled slightly to port  for     a      moment. There     was      a  crunching noise, the bow rose high in the  air and then dropped to the level again  as the City of Rome crushed through and  glanced along the  edge  of  the  iceberg,  passed it and disappeared in tlie fog.     it  was all over in a minute and then captain  Young sprang to the bow and lowered  himself from the chains to ascertain what  damage had been  done.    ITe reappeared  in .about two minutes and shouted to the  passengers, who now crowded the decks,  "No damage, no danger."', What he- had  found was that .the  bobstay had been^  bent in and the right arm of the figurehead representing Julius Ctcsar had. been  " broken     off."     There     was    a'     scene  of    considerable     excitement     in     the  ' cabin      Avhen      the      shock     of     the  collision    occurred    and    it'  was    only  pi-evented from becoming a panic by tlie  coolness and energy of the  ship's doctor,  John  K.   Crawford,  and  other   officers,  who   finally  succeeded  in   quieting  the  fears of the prsseugers.     Several women  fainted, others  became  hysterical and a  number   of   men  and  women fell upon  their knees in prayer.    There  was also a  new terror added to   the scene for a few  minutes.    A   passenger   who had  acted  queerly during the voyage, and had. it is  said, been put under  restraint, ran from  his stateroom through  the salon  wildly  brandishing   a   knife.     Within   ten   or  fifteen minutes, however, quiet was fully  restored, but many of the passengers, the  women especially, remained up all night,  and some took the precaution of providing themselves with life preservers.

An   adjournment  of  48   hours  Avould probably give  them  time  to got  here.     A  remarkable  circumstance and  one that is significant of the relations between tho two prominent advocates who  aro conducting  the defence   is   the   fact  that Maitre Labori telegraphed  the German emperor and the king of  Italy  on  his   own   initiative   without  consulting  Maitre   Demange.      The  appearance  of  colonel Scliwnrf/koppen  and  I'ani/./.ardi  would be the most, sensational tis well as  tho most important, incident of the entire  trial.      Their   depositions   would   be a  formal   and . emphatic   declaration  that  they never had  any  relations with the  accused and that tliey would make such  statements that the court must order an  acquittal.    Those  who are in  the confidence of the counsel intrusted with the  defense express  a   firm  conviction  that  Dreyfuswillnow.be acquitted.     Nevertheless one of the most promising generals declared himself quite pleased with  the progress of the  trial  thus  far and  confident of a conclusion eminently satisfactory to the prosecution.  Tomorrow's   session    will, open   with  closed doors  to hear  from Eugene  Cer-  nushi, the Austrian political refugee, the  name of the foreign military attache he  has already mentioned as admitting that  he had   received' treasonable  documents  from   Dreyfus.     The  remainder  of  his  evidence will  be  given  in  public.  It is  reported that- the minister of war has  sent    orders     to     the     generals     and  other     military    Avitnesses     to      leave  Rennes       and        return       to       their  respective    posts    within'    two     hours  after tho  conclusion   of the  depositions  and not to bo present during  the  pleadings.    They AvilKthus be.absent when the  verdict   is  delivered.    .'General   Mereier  being on the .retired list is not affected by  this order, but generals Roget, Gonz and  do Boisedcfl'ro must go. '   The orders are  intended   to  avert  a   demonstration  in  favor of the generals.  BAD WEATHER SPOILS SPORTS  SUNDAY CLOSING FORGES WIN  Verdict Expected in the Dreyfus Case,  _^RHNN."S,-Sepleniber--5.���Maitro���Labori  - nils telegraphed, personal .appeals  to  the  . .emperor William and king Humbert to  . grant   permission, to   colonel  Schwartz-  ��� koppen and colonel  Paniy./.a.rdi^  German  I and Italian attachees in Paris iu IS04, to  , come to Ratines to testify on behalf of  ; Dreyfus.   This is the chief topic of coli-  , versation in cafes and tlie reports of the  Journalists- tonight.    Tlie appeals Were  couched in eloquent tcrms> invoking the  assistance, of their majesties in the. name  of justice and huniaiiity.   These are quite  supplementary to the formal 'application  ���that will be made by the government  comnilssftry, iiiajoi' Onrrieiv  The demand of M. Labori tliat the  court martial should issue process, subject  to the approval of the two sovereigns,  cante like a thunderbolt in today's session.  The step is fraught< with momentous consequences, as it affords emperor William  an opportunity to assume his favorite  role of arbiter of the destinies  of the .world. No one would be  surprised if colonel Sehwartzkoppen in  the name of the kaiser, should make a declaration that would practically decide  the trial; Both ��� Schwartsskoppen and  PannissKardi must consult their respective  sovereign's before coming, but the counsel  "'or' captain Dreyfus fully expects them to  arrive here, if they come at all, in time to  give their testimony on Thursday. Iu  this ease, the trial would probably consume this week find the verdict be delivered on Friday or Saturday. This is  the view that obtains tonight, differing  somewhat from the feeling earlier in the  day.  Colonel Jdiiatist told Maitre Demange  at the close of the session that if; he  should receive official notification that  colonel Schwartzkoppen and Paniazardi  would come to depose he would be pre-  jjaredto adjourn the trial pending their  With Two Members Absent.  At the meeting of tlio city council last  evening alderman Beer's Sunday closing-  bylaw received its second -reading. The  fight against-,the bylaw'-was made by  alderman Fletcher,- who was supported  by .mayor Neelands, but as aldermau  Beer was supported by aldermen Moliillop  and Kirkpatrick, -with, aldermen Hillyer  and Thomson absent, the second reading was carried. ou a vote  to three to two. As the by-law was in-  broduccd it prohibited the sale of anything ou Sunday save milk, drugs and  medicines, but when it came up for its  second reading some consideration was  shown for the objections raised by alderman Fletcher, and an amendment was inserted permitting the salo of tobaccos  and newspapers. With alderman Hillyer  present it is douhtfid if the third reading  of the by-law can be earned, as he is said  to be opposed to it.  Tho bylaw levying a road tax of two  dollars upon all nude residents between  the ages of 21 and 50 shears received its  first and second reading Avithout opposition as the council needs the money.  The bylaw regulating Avashhouses was  not introduced.   The bylaw:closing-barber-shops on-Sun-  day received its first and second reading,  alderman Fletcher aloue'dissenthig.  The bylaw to provide for the numbering of the houses in the city received Its  first find second readings, after Avhich a  resolution wa$," moved by alderman  Fletcher, seconded by alderman I&ii'kpat-  ri'ek, instructing the city engineer to have  the niVmos of the streets printed on tin  sheets and posted oil all steeets inter1"  meeting Stanley, Ward : and : Josephine  streete.  The report of the public works committee: Was received and Considered  clause" by clause. The first clause,  awarding the contract for the laying of  the water pipe' to MeBeath <fc Peters, was  adopted.  Tlio .clause iu. the report - recommending  that the city solicitor prepare agreements to be signed by the owners of private property, giving tlie city permission  to lay its pipe line over the same was  adopted,, but no recommendation AA'as  made with respect to tlie purchase of  additional hind around the .reservoir.  The clause recommending the acceptance of the tender of Campbell & Deacon  for the construction of a 'sewer along  Latimer street from Stanley street to the  Crickmay hospital, Avas adopted.  The clause recommending the purchase  of a six-foot Avater wheel for the po\yer  house aviis laid over until the next meeting of the council.  The North Star to Resume.  Fred Robbins, consulting engineer of  the Maun syndicate, is at the North Star  mine making an examination of the  property. A diamond drill is now on its  Avay to the mine.

At Rossland,  Special to tho Tril>uno.  Rossland, September 5.���Incessant  rain again interfered with tho success of  the Labor Day celebration wliich closed  tonight. Tho city has been crowded with  visitors, every hotel having been taxed  to its utmost. A greater number arrived  by this morning's train than arrived  yesterday. Inclement Aveather interfered Avith the decorations, elaborate  preparations for which had been made.  The city generally Avas in 'holiday attire,  but owing to the storm all prizes for  decorations Avere declared off.  The rock drilling contest was an interesting attraction, and Avas Avatched by a  crowd of fully two thousand persons.  Rossland's champions, Mike Burns and  J. A. 'Morrison,- Avere defeated ���by Mike  McNichols and Billy Tallant. While  Burns, and Morrison drilled the sun came  out for a short time. They driiled 34f.  inches solid granite. When McNichols  and Tallant came on the stand the rain  Avas beating doAvn more pitilessly than  ever, but they decided to go on,, and  finished. They drilled 35i inches, winning  the prize pf $250 by three-fourths of an  inch, and beatfng the champions of Rossland. Only tAvo teams contested, therefore the second prize of $100 Avas called  off. .-.. ..-* ���������;.' .-:  The second event Avas.a boys' drilling  contest for Avhich" prizes of $25 aiid $15  Avere offered. There Avere three entries  for this event. Martin and Smith took  first prize in eight minutes drilling 11  inches, Furlong and Stephens took second with a record of 10$ inches, and For-  teath and Reagh third Avith 10^ inches..  A street parade took place at 10  o'clock, the city band heading the procession. H. W. C. Jacksou acted as drum  major. He performed Avouderful feats  with a big gold headed baton. FoIIoav-  ing the band came the Painter's union in  full Avhite uniforms bearing in front a  beautiful silk banner. Next came a large  float, drawn by six horses, representing  art in its' various, branches. - A large  delegation froni the'Miners' Union, Barbel's, Typographical, Carpenters, Newsboys and various other - trades  _and ^ labor unions .' took* part,'  marching on   ",   the' sideAvalk,  Avith banners and different devices emblematic of their respective organizations.  Rain   and   Avind   interfered    materially  with  the  calculations   of   the  different  uniformed societies avIio expected to make  grand displays.    A dump cart filled Avith  vegetables,   fruit,  hay,  chickens, boxes,  etc., advertising A. C. Fry AA'as a noticeable feature of the, day's sports���in fact  the most prominent feature in a humorous  Avay.    The horse being spirited and  the driver a novice, the former became  frightened  and   ran   aAvay, spilling the  contents  in  all  directions.     EArerybody  cheered loud and long,  and  the  exhibit  Avas conceded to bo a huge success in all  respects. No harm Avas done to the driver  or the horse, although both Avere in danger for a time.  The firemen's race resulted as folloAVs :  Fred Wilson first, William Boyd second.  In the 220 yards open foot race Tommy  Morris took first, Chester McBride second,  and-W.-Best-third���Prizes-Avero-$25 and  $10. A black cur interfered with this  race and threw C. Wilson put, Avhen he  stood a good chance for second money.  Tile same cur also interfered with some  horseraces, but he still survives.  ' There were the usual little folks'* sports  held in the skating rink.  In horse racing the event in which, the  most interest A\'as taken Avas the gentlemen's saddle race. There were1 three  entries, Dr. Coulthard's Major Avinning in  three straight heats.  John McLaren, president of the trades  aitdj labor council, then called a meeting  tit Minors-' Union Hall. Tlie building' was  crowded with an enthusiastic assemblage, representing the bone and muscle  of Ttob'slaiid. Interesting addresses were  delivered by Mayor Good eve, Janies  Wilks, F. J. Deane. M.P.P., of Ram loops,  editor of the Inland Sentinel of that city,  Mr. Ralph Smith, M.P.P., of Nanaimo,  chairman of the Trades and Labor Congress of Canada, Avhich meets iu Montreal this month, aud J. R. Sovereign, ex-  president of the Knights of Labor, Avho  stated amid loud cheers that it Avas the  first time lie had ever addressed a Cana-  idian audience. He endorsed the eight-  hour movement and illustrated his points  by drawing parallels to good effect.  The celebration concluded Avith a grand  ball tonight.*  EIGHT-HOUR LAW DEFENDED BY  Ralph Smith at Rossland.  At the Labor Day celebration  in Rossland on Monday, Ralph .Smith, tho recognized leader  of organized  labor  in this  province and member of  the  legislature  for   South   Nanaimo,   inado   some  vary  pointed remarks upon  tho subject of the  eight-hour   amendment   Avhich   was   inserted into  the  Metalliferous Mines  Inspection Act last session.    He  reminded  his hearers that  there  was nothing new  in   such   legislation.     The  principle   of  eight   hours   in   mines has  been  established.    The  coal  miners  of Vancouver  Island have eight hours as a consequence  of organized  labor in  the old  country  jfears ago, and it did  seem  to  him that  AVhen organized labor expressed  a disposition for eight hours in the  metal mines  of this  country  tho operators  ought to  liaA'c remembered that, as a principle, it  avjis established and- ought to be  given.  The speaker declared that  avo  might as  Ayell think  of allowing them  to ignore  other   long-standing,  principles   as  this  one.    Take  the  right to combine, made  laAV fifty years ago.    Tho operator avIio  refused this privilege, he declared, Avas a  scab.  'The great.majority.'of employers  never   question   this  right,  and  surely  then AA'e ought to insist  upon  the  privi-.  lege, by  laAV  if necessary,  rather than  allow a feAv operators to interfere with  our rights.  Take again the right of workmen raakr,  ing complaints against existing conditions  ���of.danger.    The old cry   Avas "We will  manage our  mines and factories  as  Ave  like," and the employe  Avas told  that it  avjis none of his business to say what.was-  dangerous, but just to Avork ahead. There  are still a few ignorant bosses'who  say  the same today, but instead of tho people  submitting to  this,  they organized and  sent members to  the  British house and  regulated   these  conditions.    They  just  told the employers  Avhen  conditions of  danger existed, and  that  they  must be  remedied.    Do you think it reasonable to  condone Avith  any  feAv employers avIio  refuse to adopt along standing principle,  asked   the   speaker.     These   things tire  enforced, and they are just as young as  the  principle  of eight  hours in" mines.  There ought not to be  any. necessity- for  'legislation today for any principle"wliich  Avas admitted iu England   .30 years ago,  and many years  ago  in  the Australian  colonies.    When a few operators  refuse  to voluntarily do it, then it is reasonable  to say to them, Ave will make you  do it.  4    " It is said that the mine-operators arc  uniting in   favor of legislators Avho Avill  repeal the eight-hour laAv.    I want them,  before   they   do this,   to consider   tAvo  things.    First,   that   they aviJI by such  action drive  organized  labor to outA-ote  any candidate outside of the labor ranks.  We Avant to be just to all interests.    We  ought to have all   interests fairly represented, but by this foolish action of trying to organize against  Avhat is in common operation all over the Avorld, except  a few of the states of America, they will  drive us to supply  the legislator's onesided   interests   Avhich,    as   soon   as   it  Avishes, can outvote the outside operators.  "They  ought   to    remember   another  thing.    These mines, after all, are under  the super-vision-aud control of-tho-govern--  ment, and Avhen Ave can  prove  that the  workmen   have   exhausted'   every   fair  means of conciliation,   and   these mine  operators who simply Ibtliid the wealth,  are refusing to operate and thus deprive  the provhice of revenue, the government  can operate them for thein, and hand  over to them what it considers a fair  return   on   their  capital.     I  think  the  operators here are Very short-sighted on  this matter,' they have not by any means  exhausted 'the .method's of conciliation.  They liave their constitutional remedy,  by agreeing witli the miners for proper  contract rates for drilling tile rock And  Aveek of Inman and Crnddock with seven,  other prisoners from the Wardner bullpen has disarranged the plans of the  prosecution, as the officers Avoro ready to  proceed today Avith tho eases against Inman and Craddock, this being tho date  set for their trials before court adjourned  at tho hist term. Now other cases must  be taken up, and tho attorneys desire  some time to prepare for trial. No intimation is given out as ^to Avhich of the  prisoners Avill be called for.  TWO   OFFENDERS  COMMITTED  The Cameron Theft Case.  Thomas Cameron received his  preliminary hearing yesterday morning before  police magistrate Crease upon the charge  other work. This they have never  attempted to do, I am informed. I see no  reason why they, ought to battle with the  eight-hour law. Some of those mines  are making large profits and are paying  larger wages than some of the coal niines  of Vancouver Island, which never Avork  longer than eight hours."  of stealing a  check  for  $15.05 from the  person of John Leech in the rear  of the  Grand Central hotel on Sunday morning.  The   evidence   AA'as   conclusive    agaiust  Cameron.    Herbert Frederick Lee, ono of  the proprietors of the hotel  said that he  sjiav the  prisoner' take the check from  Leech Avhile the latter Avas  asleep, and  when "taxed with'the taking the prisoner  replied that he Avas  merely  taking  care  of the check until Leech should get sober.  Cameron and another man then took the  check to the Silver King hotel and  requested the. bartender to  cash  it.    The  check Avas made by H.  W. Hawley, Avho  has the contract for the  construction of  the Molly  Gibson Avagon  road,  and the  bartender agreed to cash the check provided it  was  endorsed.    The  mau  avIio  Avas 'with Cameron then forged the name  of John Leech, but before the tAvo could  receive the money they Avere denounced  by a man  whom the proprietors of the  Grand Central had sent to  recover the  check.    Cameron's defence was  that   he  took the check with Leech's consont, and  that he was not a party to the attempt  to cash the same.    The  magistrate  committed   Cameron    for   trial   and  bound  Leech ever in the sum of $50  to  appear  and give evidence against him.  Kelly Housebreaking Case. -  Austin J. Kelly had a hearing upon the  charge of breaking into and entering the  dwelling of T. M. Parr on Cedar  street  Avith  intent   to   commit   an   indictable  offense".'     The only evidenee.takcn-in the  case was that of Parr,"the  owner of the  house,  and chief of  police  Jarvis,  whoL  made tho arrest.     Parr's testimony Avas  that  as he  Avas  returning  home  about  noon on Monday he saAV Kelly jumping  away from a AvindoAV in the house Avhich  had been broken in.     Kelly at once took  to his heels aud Parr after.following him  for some distance  returned aiul notified  the police.    Parr's opinion Avas that Kelly  saAV him coining and got out of the Avin-  dow   before   he  came   up.    There   Avas  nothing missing from  the house saA'e a  loaf of bread.    Kelly, who had just been  liberated from the provincial jailwon the  morning of the housebreaking, had nothing to say in answer to the magistrate's  interrogations and Avas  forthwith  committed   for   trial.      Kelly   asked   for   a  speedy trial.   Galena Farm Will be Worked.  A. AV. McCune and W. L. Hoge, avIio,  with MoCuaig, Rykert & Go. of Montreal,  -haA'e -just- purchased���the -Galena���Farm  property in the Slocan, have returned to  .Salt Lake City after a loug(/hy visit to  their latest purchase. The property Was  thoroughly examined, and the iie\V. owners express their intention of putting  eonsiderable money into the immediate  development. In an intdrvicAV with the  Salt Lake Herald Mr, McCune has noth��-  ing to say as to tlio pernicious effect of  the eight-hour IiIav. On thO contrary, he  announces that his company will at once  resume work upon a property wliich tlie  foi'lner owners spent thousands of dollars  upon without return.  WATER AND LIGHT QUESTIONS  Before the Works Committee.  A meeting  of the public  AA'orks Committee   AA-as   held  yesterday   afternoon  Avhen the matter of the  laying of the  Avater main   from  Cottomvood  creek  to  tho reservoir and  the improving  of the  electric light service was discussed. With  respect to the first matter tho committee  had to decide whether tho  city  should  lay tlie pipe lino by day's- Labor or accept  the tender of MeBeath  ��fc  Peters,  which  while the lowest received   for  tho work  Avas   $808   in   excess of  what  the  city  engineer estimated tho work should  be  done for.  Alderman   Fletcher   AA-as  in   ftiA'or of  letting thoAvork by contract as ho figured  that Avhile the actual  Avork  under close  supervision   might   be   done   for  $1000  the    difference  Avould   represent  but  a  fair   profit    for    the   contractors.      He  tulded     that    the    experience    of    the  council had been that work could not be  handled by the city by day's labor within  estimated  costs, as the city did not get  the work out of men that private contractors did.     There was also the item  of tools to be provided for and the city  '-would have to take the risk of striking  considerable hard work.|  City Engineer McCulloch informed the  committee that MeBeath & Peters already had considerable work in hand for  the city, and the indications were that  they Avouid not make anything upon  either their electric light flume or their  sewer contract. Such being the case he  thought that perhaps it might be Avell for  the city to award them the contract for  the pipe line even though their price avjis  in excess of his estimate.  Mayor Neelands as��ented to the recommendation of the committee that the contract be awarded ta MeBeath & Peters.  TheAvork Avill probably furnish employment to fifteen men, avIio should complete  it within two months provided favorable  Aveather is had.  City engineei McCulloch reported that  the men AA'ould be in fioin the electric  light flume that evening, and the water  Avould be turned into tlie flume before  they left. At present-he said there was D  more water in the creek than the flume  could carry, as the sido joint Avas not  very closo. When he turned the Avater  in tis an experiment he had to chock tho  flow doAvn to 350 miiieis inches, which  the flume could carry Avithout raising the  water above tho side joints.  The desirability of substituting a six-  , foot Avheel at the city's electi ic power  house Avas also discussed. The city "  has a chance of disponing of the four-foot ��  '.Avheel. If the finances Avill stand it tho  council Avill be asked to make tho purchase of the larger Avheel.  The city engineer also called the attention of the committee to the desirability  of raising the electric light dam four  feet. This, he said, Avould ensure the  city ti .steady Avater supply sufficient,  with the flow of the creek, to run two  six-foot wheels to theii" utmost capacity  for eleven hours and generate poAver for ��  5000 lamps. This raising of the level of  the dam Avould give a total storage area  of about two and a third acies and  Avould ovei flow but a small amount of  land iu addition to that already covered  by the present dam. While it might not  be convenient to make the- necessary expenditure upon the dam this year, he  thought that in effecting a settlement  with the owners of Addition A for land  already in dispute the council should  also acquire title to such extra land as  would be affected by the raising of the  dam. The land required was practically  worthless, and tit its widest point Avould  -nt)trextend"moi'e"than 10���feet-fiTTfii tlie"  present Avatei Ica'oI, so that the area  would be comparatively small.  The committee requested the engineer  to prepare a tiacing, showing the  amount of land which he considered it  desirable for (he city to acquitc, and the  "negotiations for purchase, together Avith  an application for pot mission to lay the  proposed pipe line over certain other pii-  vaty property, will, by the committee's  recommendation, be placed in the hands  of the city Solicitor.

The  suit is the .first of its kind taken against  the bank since it closed its doors a month  ago yesterday, and the question as to  whether the privilege of ninety days  granted banks, in which they can-suspend  payment before tliey can be put into  liquidation, covers this point now to be  brought up.  iFresh Mineral Discoveries.

By till the laws  governing the relations between' people  and their names, he should have been  Irish ��� but he was not. He was colored,  and A'ery much so. That Avns the reason  he lived on Douglass street. The negro  Avas very strong within him (the instinct  of, colonization), and it .was in accordance  AA'ith this that Patsy's mother had found  her AVtiy to Little Afiica when she had  come north from Kentucky.  Ptitsy Avas incorrigible. Even into the  confines of Little Africa had penetrated  tlio trutint-ofliceraud the terrible penalty  of the compulsory education law. Time  and time again '.had -poor Eliza Barnes  ibeen brought up on account of the shortcomings of that son of hers. She avjis a  hardworking, honest Avonian, and day by  day bent over her tub, scrubbing away to  keep Ptitsy in shoes-and jackets, that.  Avould Avetir out so much faster than they  could bo bought. But she never murmured, for she loved the boy Avith a deep  affection, and his misdeeds Avere, ji sore  thorn.in her side.  She Avanted liim to go to school. She.  AAranted liim to learn. She had the notion  that he might become something better,  something higher than she had been.

The little fellow  had. shedno tettf�� AVheu he looked at Ms  .father's bleediiig body, bruised and  broken by the fiery young two-year-old  lie avjis trying to subdue.    Patsy did not  ^sob-oi'���Avhiinper^tholigli^his-heart^tehedr  for over all the feeling of hi�� grief was a  mad, burning desire to ride that horse.  His tears Were '.lied, liOAVever, when,  Actuated by the idea that times Avould be  easier up North, they moved to Dales'-  ford. Then, Avlieiv lie lealuied that lie  niust leave liis old friends, tlio horses and  their masters, who... ��� lie had known, he  Wept. The comparatively inejigre ay-  poiiitniolitaof the fait' grounds at Dttles-  ford proved ii poor compensation for all  tllese. l''Or the (i^st ;fe\VAveeks Pttt,sy httd  dreams of running away���back to Kentucky and the horses and stables. Then  Jtfter a while he settled himself" AVitii  heroic resolution to make the best of  Avhat he hail, and with a mighty effort  took up the burden of life tway from his  beloved home.  Eliza Barnes, older and more experienced though she avjis, took up her burden Avith a less cheerful philosophy than  her son. She Avorkedhard, .and made a  scanty livelihood, it is true, but she did  not make the best of Avhat she had. Her  eomplauings Avere loud in the land, and  her AVJiilings for her old home smote the  ears of any avIio would listen to her.  They had been living iu Dalesford for a  year nearly when hard Avork and exposure brought the Avonian down to bed Avitli  pneumonia. They Avere very poor���too  poor even to .call in a doctor, so there avjis  nothing to do but to call in the city  physician. Now this medical man liad  too frequent calls into Little Africa, and  lie did not like to go there. So he Avas  very gruff Avhen any of its denizens called him, and ifrAvas even said tliat he avjis  careless of his patients.  Patsy's heart bled as he heard the doe-  tor talking to his mother:  "Noaa1", 'there CJin't be .any foolishness  ,  about this," he said,    "FouVe got to stay  in bed and not get yourself damp."  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Sk.aguay, U. S., Atlin., B. C, and  Dawson City, YuK<>n District.  "How long you think I got to lay  hyeah, doetahy" she asked.  "I'm a doctor, not a fortune teller,"  was the reply. "You'll lie there as long  as the disease holds you."  "But I can't lay hyeah long, doclah,  case I ain't got niifliii' to go on."  "Well, take your choice: the bed or the  boneyard."  Hliza begun to cry.  "You needn't sniffle," said tho doctor;  "I don't see what you people AA'ant to  conic up here for anyhow. Why don't  you stay down South Avhere you belong?  You'come up hero and you're just a burden and a trouble to the city. The South  deals Avith all of you better, both in pov-  crty and crime." He kneAv that these  people did not understand him, but he  wanted an outlet for the.licit within him.  There was another angry being in the  room, tind that A\'as Ptitsy. His eyes Avere  full of tears that scorched him and would  not fall. The memory of many beautiful  and approprijite oaths came to him; but  lie dared not let his mother hour him  swear. Oh! to htive a stone���to be across  tho street, from that man !  When the physician walked out, Patsy  Avent to the bed, took his mother's hand  andbontovershanicfsicedly to kiss her. He  did not know that Avith' th.it Jict the Recording angel blotted out many a "curious  oath of his.  The little mark of affection comforted  Eliza unspeakably. The mother-feeling  overwhelmed her in one burst of tears.  Then she dried her eyes and smiled at him.  "Nevah min', honey," she said ; "mammy ain't gwine lay hyeah long. She be  all right putty soon."  "Nevah you min'," said Pjitsy AA'ith a  choke in his voice. "I can do somep'n',  an' Ave'll htiveaiiothali doctah."  "La, listen at de chile; Avhat kin you do?"  "I'm gpin' down to McCtirthy's  stable  and  see   if   I kiu   git   some   horses   to  exercise." .;...-. .  . -".

Among the latter Avas  ji tall, lan.ky man, holding forth to a  group of men.  "No. sub," he avjis saying to them generally, "I'ni goin'- to AvithdraW my hoss,  beejvuse thaili ain't nobody to ride him as  lie ought to be rode. I haven't brought  iX jockey along Avith me, so I've got to de^  pond on piclv-nps. Now, the talent's set  tvgin iny hoss. Blacik Boy, because he's  been, losin'' regular, but that hoss litis lost  for the wjnit of I'idiii', that's till."  The crowd looked iiv tit the slim-legged,  rtiW-bohed liofse, .and AVtilked awtty  iJiugliiug.  "The fools!" muttered the stranger,  "If I could ride myself I'd show 'em!"  Patsy was gjv/.iiig into the stall at the  horse.  "What are you doing there," called the  OAvner of him.  "Look hyeah, mister," said Patsy,  "ain't that a bluegrass hoss?"  "Of co'se it is, an' one o' the fastest  thah evah grazed."  "I'll ride that hoss, mister."  "What do you knoAV 'bout ridin'?"  "I used to gin'ally be 'roun' mister  Boone's paddock iu Lexington, ari'^������"  "Arouu' Boone's paddock���Avlnit! Look  here, little nigger, if you can ride that  hoss to a Avinnin* I'll give you more money than you ever seen before;"  "I'll ride him."  Patsy's lieart was beating very Avildly  benetith his 'jacket. He kneAvtluit glossy  coat. He knew that raAAr-boned frame  and those flashing nostrils. That bkick  horse there owed something to the orphan he had nuide.  Long before the time for the race Patsy  went, into the stall to become better acquainted with his horse. The.animal  turned its-wild eyes upon hini and neigh  ed.    He  patted the  long,  slender  head,  jind grit.!n'd jis the horse stepped aside.  "He sholy is full o' ginger," he said to  the owner. Avhose name he had found to  be Brackett.  "He'll sIioav 'em a thing or tAvo," laughed Brackett.  "His dam aaras a fast one," said Ptitsy  unconsciously.  Brackett whirled on him in a flush.  "What do you know about his dam?" ho  asked.  Tho boy stannneringly told the story  of his father's death and the horse's connection therewith.  "Well," said Brackett," if you don't  turn out a hoodoo, you're a winner, sure.  But I'll bo blessed if this don't sound like  a story! But I've heard that story before. The man I got Black Boy from told  it to nie."  When the boll sounded and Patsy  AA'ont out to warm up, he felt as if he  woro riding on air. Some of the jockeys  laughed at his get-up, but there aviis  something in him���or under him, maybe  ���that made him scorn their derision.  Then the bell called him back to the  stand.  They did not get tuvay at first, and  back they trooped. A second trial Avas a  failure. But at tho third they Avere off  in a line as straight as a chalk-mark.  There Avere Essex and Prefly, Queen Bess  and Mosquito, galloping away side by  side, and Bltick Boy a neck ahead. Pjitsy  kneAv the family reputation of his horse  for endurance as AArell as fire, and begjin  riding the race from the first. Black  Boy came of blood that Avould not be  passed, .and to this his rider trusted. At  the eighth the. line Avas hardly broken,  but as the quarter avjis reached Bltick  iBoy.had increased his lead and Mosquito  Av.as at his flank. Then, like ji nash,  Essex shot':out ahead under.. whip .and.  spur, his jockey standing straight in the  stirrups. s .  The croAA'd in the stand screamed; but  iPatsy smiled as he lay low over his  horse's neck. He saAV that Essex had  made her best spurt. His only fear Avas  for Mosquito, Avho hugged aiid hugged  his flank. They were ne'aring the .three-,  'quarter, post, and he., was . tightening his  grip on the black. Essex fell back; his  spurt Avas over.. The whip fell unheeded  on his skies. The spurs dug him in vain.  Another cheer from the stjind, and  again Patsy smiled ivs they turned into  the stretch. Mosquito has gained a head.

Then the band thundered, and Patsy  AA'as oil' his horse, very warm and Arory  nappy, following his mount to the stable.  There, a little later, Brackett found him.  He rushed to him, and flung his arms  around him.  "You little devil," he cried, "you rode  like you Avcro related to that hoss!  We've Avon ! We've Avon ! " And ho began thrusting bank notes at the boy. At  first Patsy's eyes bulged, and then ho  sei'/ed the money and got into his  clothes.  An hour later he Avalked into his  mother's room Avith a very big doctor,  the greatest the druggist could direct  him to. The doctor left his medicines  and his orders, but, Avhen Ptitsy told his  story it aviis Eliza's pride that started  her on the road to recoA'ery. Ptitsy did  not tell his horse's name.

The Wilson brothers, who are dcArelop-  ing the Birdseye, havesiirA'eyors tit work  surveying tv Avagon road from tin; liirds-  eye to the Athabasca mill. Jt is said thatthe road will be" commenced at once. At  the Birdseye a fault has been encountered  but the operators of the property tire  confident of again catching the load.  While they had'it the lead avjis unifortn-  ily rich.  Alderman Fletcher, Avho has recently  returned from Grand Forks, says thatthe  people of that town are A^ery much exercised OArcr the disclosures Avhich tire  stud to have been made Avith respect to  the burning of the hotel at Columbia.  There is now little doubt in the minds of  most people that the fire was incendiary.  Some six arrests have been made and  Avarrants are out for others avIio are said  to haAre left the country.  The London & British Columbia Gold-  fields, Limited, have purchased the plant  and Avater rights at Case-tide City formerly owned by the Dominion Mining and  DeA'elopment Agency. This poAver is regarded in the Boundary .as a very valuable asset Avhich the selling company has:  spent several mouths in harnessing. ..  The Crows Nest Pass Coal Company is  uoav laying iu a stock of coal in its Nelson yard for the Aviuter's use. The coal  uoav coming in is from a greater depth in  the mine and is of a much better quality  than that Avhich aa .is shipped last Aviuter.  R. L. Lennie returned last evening  from a business trip to Fort Steele.  By some oversight the Canadian Pacific Railway Company allowed passengers for Kootenay Landing to remain  a couple pf hours in the dark last night  ;aa. viting for the steamer for the Landing.  ���When a boat is going to be several hours  late in arriving at her point of departure  officers of the boat know of it. This  being the case there can be no excuse for  permitting passengers to Avait two hours  in the rain.  Finns Coming to B. C.  Touonto, September 5.���A delegation  of Kinns is on its \Arn.y to the Dominion to  select lauds for a colony of betAveen five  and ten thousand families. The delegation Avill probably decide upon British  Columbia, along the Pacific' slope and  Vancouver Island. A letter to this effect  was received at Ncav York from A. Boig-  strom. Mr. Borgstrom, Mr. M. Zillicaus  ami Mr. C. Mypestein, constituting the  delegation, have been travelling  over Canada as tlie guests of the Canadian government. An .agent of the Finland Navigation Company says : "Thousands of Finn will come to this country  before the present year is out. Farms  which used to sell live years ago at 25,000  marks are going today for f.,000 and less.  The people want to get rid of their holdings. As soon as the obnoxious changes,  in the Finiiishconstitution, which congress  failed to sanction, tire enforced, the Finns  will be ready tocptit their natiArccountry."  The Metal Market.
