 THE SiTUATIONJN^SOUTH AFRICA  Wired from Londoii This Morning.  London, November  2;"5.���5 p. m.���Thus  far the special dispatches  describing the  battle   of   Belmont bear   a   stereotyped  character, proAring that  the hand of  the  censor has been at work on them.     They  are too incoherent to  enable the  reader  to form an accurate idea of the event, or  to place a proper estimate  on the  value  of the  victory.    All  the accounts agree  respecting the splendid fighting qualities  displayed on both sides.     Nothing could  have  exceeded  the  steady courage and  pluck of the British infantry in the  face  of  terrible   fire; while   the   Boer   guns  were   splendidly    served,   the    gunners  standing to them with dogged determination,     exposing   themselves    until   the  very last moment,  aud  only   becoming  wild   in   the ,aecuraoy    of    their    aim  during     the     charge   of    the     British  infantry.     *   All admit,  however,    that  the   victory    could    not    be    properly  followed up  and  utilized  owing  to  the  want of sufficient cavalry.    The  pursuit  of   the   defeated   enemy   by the   Fifth  Lancers was evidently not very effective,  and curiously enough, while all  the  correspondents  report  the  capture  of  the  Boer guns, geueral Methuen's own report  omits any mention of such an achievement.    On the whole it seems safe to assume that the Boer guns were  not  captured.  The striking proof offered of the excellent material general Methuen has in  his brigade has, however, been a matter  of great satisfaction iu London.  There is an unconfirmed* rumor that  the correspondence seized in the Boer  camp contains evidence of treasonable  communication between the Boers and  the Dutch colonists.  The corrrspondent of the Times at Belmont says: " After the struggle the  laager was'burned and the ammunition  destroyed. The cavalry and mouuted  infantry on both of the flanks pursued,  but were unable to overtake the fleeing  Boers, who got away with their transport. The Boer rout was complete aud  their losses arc believed to equal ours.  They used some dumdum bullets. Everything wat> iu their favor. Jt is rumored  that there have been some threats to  assassinate the burghers who are tired of  war and are deserting."  General White's dispatch of Wednesday effectually disposes of all the rumors  of another sortie from tadysmith and of  the defeat of the Boers. The situation  iu Natal remains unchanged, the sortie  from Estcourt to Willow Grange having  effected little. 'The position of Mafeking  is beginning to be~regarded with anxiety,'  in view of the" impossibility of general  Metheun being able to reach the town for  some time to come.  Throngs of people -wore waiting at the  war office last evening until a lat6 hour  for the list of the killed, wounded or  missing in the battle of Belmont, but  nothing was published in addition to general Metheun's first dispatch.  General Buller's destination is kept a  strict secret at Cape Town. Some reports say that he has gone north, and  others that he litis gone to Durban, as  already cabled.  , A dispatch to the Times from Mooi  river gives tho British casualties in the  Willow Grange affair as three killed and  forty-four wounded. This is the lirst  news of such a,heavy loss, and if correct  suggests a repetition of general While's  action of October" 30th.  The Pie.terinaritzbuig correspondent of  the Daily Mail, describing the same, says  the British s>urprised the Boers, carried  their position, captured all th_ir_e��lu ip_-  ment^ find returned, to Estcourt iu  safety. Geueral Hildyard was well satisfied with their work.  The Daily Mail's correspondent at  Naaupoort says: "An open, unsigned  letter, smuggled through fromColesburg,  says commandant Grobbler "has arrested  two prominent Englishmen, and threatens  to shoot them if any harm ib done to Van  Ranzenburg, ringleader of tlie Golesburg  rebels, who was captured by the British  and it> to be tried for troahon."  nne  SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 25,  1899.

There is a sad .side to all this; indeed}  you and I are thinking as much of those  who have died for the honor of their  country and of those who are suffering as  we are thinking of our victory."  BOERS TREATED THEM KINDLY  Michael Davitt Injured.  Dmii.il*., November 21.���Michael Davitt was thrown from his carriage in a  street accident in Dublin today aud rendered unconscious by the fall. He revived soon after he had beeu taken to  the residence of John Dillon. Although  he complains of injuries to the back and  head, his physicians do not consider his  condition such as to. cause alarm.  Will Escape by Balloon.  London, November 25.���Nothing is  known at Cape Town concerning the reports that United States consul Macrum  has been refused permission to leave the  Transvaal territory. It is said that Cecil  Rhodes keeps a big balloon ready at  Kimberley to escape if driven to that extremity. - -  All Well at Ladysmith.  Duriian, November 24.���Au official  message from general White at Ladysmith, dated November 22nd, says : "Situation unchanged. Troops well and  cheerful."  The Battle of Belmont,  London, November 25.���The Daily Mail  publishes the following dispatch from  Belmont describing the battle: "Tlie  Boers held a position which British troops  would hold against almost any force. The  Boers were routed completely, and many  estimates of their loss is 50 killed and  150 wounded. ,Mr. Knight, correspondent of the London Morning Tost, was  wounded. The Boer prisoners are ignorant, dirty and Wretched. They say that  half their commando are tired of war and  will refuse further service. The force of  the fearful fight 'was borne by the infantry, who were obliged to climb 500 feet  straight into a terrific stream of missel?.  The Ninth Lancers pursued the enemy  with great vigor, but the Boers, well  mounted and familiar with the hills,  melted before them. Possibly, however,  the victory would have been more decisive had we possessed more cavalry."  After the battle of Belmont general  Metheun, addressing his troops, said:  " Comrades, I congratutate you on tiie  complete success achieved by you this  morning. The ground over 'which we  had to fight presents exceptional difficulties, tind we had as an enemy one Avho is  ar master in tho tactics of mountain fighting!    With troops, such as you,  a com-  Kussian Troops Moving East.  Odessa, November 24.���It is reported  that 10,000 troops will soon leave to reinforce Russian garrisons in the far east.  THE SARDINIAN SHOULD ARRIVE  At Cape Town Today.  '- The steamship Sardinian with the Canadian contingent aboard will arrive at  Cape Town today if as good time is made  between the Cape Verde Islands and Cape  Town as was made between Quebec and  the Islands. The distance from Quebec  to Cape Town is approximately 7015  miles, 3447 miles of which were covered  in thirteen days from the day of sailing  from Quebec. This was a daily speed of  265 miles, or 1,3 knots an hour. As the  Sardinian was tit St. Vincent ou the 12thj  she should complete the trip by the 25th  (today). Prom Cape Verde, the men were  reported' all well and in good 'spiHts.  There had been a good deal of sea sickness  tit first, but it was soon over., There  were only two days of rough weather,  on the first Wednesday and Thursday  after sailing.  The British Navy League.  London, November 24.���Rudyard Kipling, addressing a branch of the JNfavy  League this evening at Ilottendean,  Brighton, said the object of the league  was to create a certain public opinion,  which should auuounce its willingness to  pay taxes in order that the British navy  might be efficient and strong, and might  not fail the British people In the hour of  need. "We did not realize what our  navy meant," said the speaker, "until we  saw it taking away a small police detachment of (50,000 men, with mules, horses,  and hundreds of tons of stores, to get  at some people who have interfered  with our idea of right and wrong  at a distance of 6000 miles."  United States Becomes Insistent.  Washington, November 24.���Mr. Macrum, the United States consul at Pretoria, has beeu instructed by cable to impress upon president Kruger that, in the  view of this government, the usages of  all civilized nations sanction the ministration of a neutral representative in the  interest of tho citizens and captives of  oue.of the parties to a war, and he must  further insist upon performing the sacred  duties imposed by all considerations of  humanity. This is practically au announcement of the insistence of the  United States government upon the execution of the trust it has assumed in the  interests of Britain in the South African  .Republic.   Captured Counterfeit Canadian Money.  Boston, Mass., November 2*4.���[Mangled  in transmission].���Davis says he has a  wife and two children in Halifax, Nova  Scotia, and that a woman who was witli  Williams iu Guthrie, when he was  arrested, was Annie Uobert of East Boston. The police went to Miss Ilobert's  house today and found plates for $1, $2  and $5 Canadian bills, $4800 in finished  money and $4800 unfinished. One lot  was drawn on the Bank of British North  America and tho other lots were on other  Canadian banks.  On the Trail of Aguinaldo.  Manila, November 21.���Senor Buen-  camiuo, a former member of the so-called  cabinet of Aguinaldo, has been brought  to general Otis a prisoner ou board the  transport Brutus. He had sought refuge  in a village .near San Fabian with Aguiti-  aldo's mother and son. The natives disclosed his identity to major Cronin, who  captured him. ��� ..General Young is still in  the mountains on the trail of Aguinaldo.  Winston Churchill Interviewed.  Pretoria, November 24.���Through the  courtesy of the Transvall authorities, the  correspondent of   the Associated  Press  here, in the company of  Mr. Goebler, under secretary for foreign affairs, and Mr.  Desouse,  secretary  of the  war department, was enabled to visit Churchill today at the Model school, which serves as  a prison and where he  is with  the  captured officers.    Beyond a slight bullet  wound iu the right hand, he seemed well  and  looked hearty,  although  naturally  chafing, under enforced idleness.     Iu the  coiirse of the  interview he said :    ''The  Boers have treated us  with much  kindness.    This was the case  from  the first.  Tliey       praised        our       defence      of  the     train    .and     expressed      surprise  that     the     locomotive       was      saved  from becoming a hopeless wreck, as they  expected under their artillery fire.     We  were marched through a pouring rain to  Coienso, proceeding the next morning to  the Boer camp near Ladysmith, and then  going  by  rail  to  Modderspruit,  finally  arriving here on November 18th.    On the  journey    great    numbers    of   burghers  crowded to see  us,  but  there  was only  one   who made  insulting   remarks,  the  others offering us cigarettes or showing  such marks of attention.     Mr.   Churchill  said    the    confinement   in   the   Model  school    was    close     and    severe,    but  under       all       the       conditions,   ,   he  had   no   grounds   to  complain.     When  asked regarding his  general  impression,  he said  he had  had  many   discussions:  with  the  Boers  as to the, rights of the  war, and  had  been  much impressed by  the   number who  could  speak  English.  He  had found  that most  of   them  regretted the conflict, asserting that it had  arisen as the result of misrepresentations.  So far as  he  could learn, however, the  spirit of the burghers iu the field, despite  the  privations, was that  of determination, and there was no chance of an early  peace.    "I fear," said Mr. Churchill, "that  the   struggle   will  be  bloody  and   protracted."    Explanation and Declaration.'  Paris, November 24.���In the chamber  of deputies today ,during the diseussion  of the foreign estimates, couut Montagu,  Conservative, asked for explanations as  to the incident of the British cruiser  stopping and boarding a French steamer,  the Cordoba, in Delagoa Bay. M. Del-  casse, the minister of foreign affairs, replied it was not an isolated case. Belligerents during a war, he explained, had  tlie right to ascertain the nationality of  any vessel, and, he added, if the Brit'ish  cruisers only did this, they had acted  within their rights. Referring to the  Transvaal, the foreign minister said he  favored mediation and arbitration, but  he did not deem it opportune to take the  initative, as the powers had not yet signed The Hague protocol. Touching upon  the lingering newspaper strictures as to  the Fashoda settlement, the minister  remarked : " Some papers make it a business of dwelling upon national humiliation. The government took a decision  which it was quite justified in doing,  and a subsequent treaty gave France  vast territory and consolidated our African empire."  THE FOOLS ARE NOT ALL DEAD  Tire Destroys Dry Goods Houses.  Detroit, November 24.���Fire which  started iu the top floor of Krolick <fc Co's  six-story dry goods store, 1(50 Jefferson  avenue, has burned from end to end in  the two upper floors and i.s still, at 11:80  p.m., spreading. Their stock is worth  about ,$400,000 and is insured for $250,-  000. At present tho roof of .Strong, Lee  Ac Co.'s dry goods store adjoining is also  on fire, and the store is in danger of being gutted. The hitter's stock is valued  at between $300,000 and $400,000, and is  fully insured^   The Result of a Stormy Interview.  Detroit. November 21.���George Brooks,  this afternoon, shot his divorced wife  three times at her home, 221 Sherman  street, lie then rushed on, the Grand  Trunk railway tracks adjacent and shot  himself dead. The woman will recover,  although wounded in the neck, shoulder  and body. The shooting was done after  a sho'rt, stormy interview between the  couple.    , Fire iu Montreal.  Montreal, November 24.���Fire tonight  did $."50,000 damage in a building ou .St.  .James street occupied by Wm. Agnew &  Co., p*silk and dress goods importers, tho  branch of the Sanford Manufacttuing  Company of Hamilton, Ontario, and a  number of manufacturers' agents. The  loss is well covered by insurance.  Given Severe Sentences.  Halifax,November 24.���-Edward West,  charged with stealing from mail bags at  the railway station here, has been.sentenced to twelve years :in the Dor1  Chester penitentiary;. James Pender, a  young lad, au accomplice, was sent to St.  Patrick's Home for two years.  A Swindling Concern Broke up.  New York, November 24.���William F.  Miller, head of  the Franklin  Syndicate,  which has accepted deposits  from  thousands   of    persons   in   Brooklyn  under  in'omise bf paying  dividends  of 10  per  cent a week, or 520 per cent per annum,  and Cecil Leslie, his secretaiy,  were   indicted by the King's county  grand jui y  ���this afternoon.     Warrants  were  issued  for the arrest of these men, but up to a  late hour tonight neither had been found,  the police .saying they disappeared in the  afternoon.      Tonight  the   police   under  captain Reynolds, chief of detectives in  Brooklyn,  and inspector   Brannau   and  police captain Lee,  raided  the  premises  .occupied by the  Franklin  Syndicate  on  Floyd street.    There was a  great crowd  of   people  around  the  building as  the  police surrounded it.   inspector Branuan  arrested Louis Miller,  the  head of the  syndicate aud proprietor of the concern.  There were forty employees engaged  at  work in the offices and they were allowed  to go.    It was stated by Louis  Miller  to  the police that the offices  were  then  in  the hands of ex-sheriff Daly of Richmond,  ;to   whom,    he    said,   the   concern   had  assigned.  ���j Miller had been engaged for the past  two years or -so in offering his glittering  'inducements to the people to deposit  their money with him to make use of,  .but'"it has been only .within the last  .month that, by extensive advertising in  one way or another, he has managed to  attract to ,his offices hundreds of people  daily, * who gathered in a long line or  fought with each other for the opportunity to hand over their savings. Miller  began the Franklin Syndicate in a very  small way, locating his office amongst the  poorer classes iu the borough of Brooklyn, and milking one feature of  his business the acceptance of  very small sums of money and  the alleged investment of them for the  poor people. He claimed that by inside  tips on the stock market he was able to  reap large profits for his ��� clients. Seemingly he paid the interest on the principal each week and his business increased.  It is claimed that MHler was simply the  representative of a syndicate of men who  liad been engaged in conducting blind  pools for years. No syndicate has  ever attempted to pay .any such  wonderful' rates of interest as the  Franklin Syndicate. The very fact  that the newspapers and financial  circles began to make investigations  aroused public interest to such an extent,  and at the same time public cupidity,  that it is said that within the last week  Miller has received deposits aggregating  from $30,000 to $40,000.  One of Miller's trusted employees is responsible for the statement that the  Franklin Syndicate man had taken in  over $40,000,000, and it is known that  when the banks shut down on him  yesterday and refused to accept his  deposits any longer that he withdrew  $150,000 from the Wells Kargo Bank. It  is asserted tonight that Miller deposited  $100,000 witli the German consul.  allowed to increase the capital to  $5,000,000. The executive is composed of  the prominent men in Canada. Among  them are lord Strathcona, sir William  Van Home, C. M. Hays, C. It. Hosmer, AV.  W. Ogilvie, E. S. Clouston, T. G. Shaughnessy, R. B. Angus, senator Drummond,  James Ross, and others.  Ontario Crops up to the Average.  Toronto, November 2J.���The Ontario  fall crop report, issued by the government, on the whole is of the most encouraging nature. Aveiage yields about  the same as announced in the August report, with the exception of the potato  crop, which is above August figures.  May Last Six Months.  Toronto, November 24.���-General G. E.  Sanford. who has been in the British Indian service many years, is visiting here.  He is not inclined to minimise the seriousness of the war in South Aft ica, and  is of the opinion that it Avill last at least  another six mouths.  The Father Has the Right.  Niow York, November 24.���The suit of  Rosa Calm for $-3*5,000 damages, alleged  t~6~havb UeeTTdone her by her millioliaitu'  father, Isaac Calm, has been decided by  a jury in the supreme court in favor of  the defendant. Thus ends a remarkable  ease, which was the first in the history of  jurisprudence iu which a child had sued  ti father, asking damages for assault.  Counsel for defendant made a strong  plea iu his argument, contending th.it  from the time of the Romans no one had  questioned the right of ji father to chas-  tiso liis children.  Hangings in Two Southern States.  Dahlinoton, South Carolina, November 21.--Ed Lucky and Tom Mitchell  were hanged here today for ns.suult on  .Josephine LaiTerty,a young white woman.  This was the first instance of legal execution in this state for criminal assault.  Atr&riN, Texas, November 24.���.James  Davidson was hanged today for the murder of George W. Engbnrg, a merchant,  and his wife at Manor, Texas, last June.  Davidson confessed on the scaffold.  Willing to Postpone the Fight.  New York, November 21.���Peter  Maher and "Kid" McCoy may fight after  all. The statement was made today that  Maher agrees to a postponement of three  weeks ou account of McCoy's illness, and  will not claim the forfeit if the bout  takes place then. This would make tlie  date of the bout the first week in January.    A Big Trust Company Formed.  Montrkal, November 21.���A big trust  company has been, formed here, to be  known as tlie Royal Trust Company of  Montreal, with capital subscribed . of  $500,000,. lialf of which has been paid.  Authority will be asked of the Quebec  legislature, at   the  next session,  to  bt>  Reappointed to an Honorary Position.  Toronto, November 24.���Hon. David  Mills, minister of justice, has been leap-  pointed professor of constitutional law  at Trinity university.  Nova Scotia Hotelman Suicides.  Truro, Nova  Scotia,  November 24.���  J. AV. Walsh, pioprietor of the Dominion  house, shot himself dead yesterday afternoon.  WAS GIVEN A LICHT SENTENCE  For Passing Worthless Checks.  The ease against captain Wainewright,  charged with obtaining money from Lillie  Brothers by fiilse pretenses with intent  to defraud, was tried summarily by police  magistrate Crease yesterday morning.  The prosecution was conducted by chief  Jtirvis. The evidence of Thomas Lillie  was taken to the effect that the defendant, Wainewright, came .into Lillie  Brothers' store and paid an amount  which he owed with a check for five dollars. He also cashed a -eeoud check, for  five dollar*?. The checks were presented  atp tho Tir.**.k of Montreal and were-dishon^  ored, theie being no funds in the bank to  the credit of Wainewiight. J. A. Macrae,  ledger keeper at the Bank of Montreal,  testified that Wainewiight never had an  account at the bank, but that several  checks were issued and presented at the  bank for payment, the checks given to  Lillie Brothers being among the others.  W. A. Galliher, who appeared for the  prisoner, took on objection that the case  was uot properly before the magistrate,  in that the question of jurisdiction was  not shown.   The  witness, Thomas Lillie,  had stated that he resided in Nelson, but  it had not been shown that ���* the offence  recited was committed either in Nelson  or the county of Kootenay. The store of  Lillie Brothers was not shown to be in  Nelson. It might be in Greenwood or  any other place, and the court could uot  take judicial notice of the fact that it  was in Nelson.  Police magistrate Ci ease .said that he  had noticed the weak points in the evi-  _dencp_ referred to _by_the defendant's,  counsel. The witness Lillie had stated  however that he resided in Nelson and  was engaged in tlio boot aud shoe business, and fiom the general tenot of the  evidence there was not the slightest  doubt but that tho offence recited  took place in Nelson. Upon the evidence  given he would find the defendant guilty.  Mr. Galliher then asked to be allowed  to say something in mitigation of the  offence. Prior to the issuing of the  checks the prisoner had cabled to England for money and on tiie 20th of October such a cable had been -cut and au  answer which appeared favorable had  been received. He also understood that  institution had been made and would be  made in all caws, iriespcctive of the result of the present trial. He asked that  the piisoner be allowed to go upon mis-  pettded sentence.  The magistrate in reply ^aid that while  it might be traveling outside, the limits  of tho case, it had been shown that theie  wore a number of checks issued by the  defendant for which he had no funds in  the bank to meet. The fact wtis also  apparent that the merchants of  Nelson seemed to be regaided as  prey for such schemes and he  could not be swayed by sentimental  leasons. It was sworn that a crime had  been committed and there only remained  a duty for him to perforin. The full  limit for the offence committed was six  months' Imprisonment, but as restitution had been made he would commit the  defendant to three months imprisonment  at haul labor.  It is not unlikely that certiorari ptocoed-  ings will be taken by the prisoner's  counsel to ha.e the con. iction quashed '  upon the ground that the place where  the offence was committed was not  proven.  THE REVENUE FROM THE MINES  Not as Much as it Should Be.  John Keen, asses��or and  collector for  the Slocan  division,  returned  to Kaslo  yesterday.    He says that the revenue of  the government under the one per  cent  tax  upon  the output of the mines will  not exceed $14,000 this year as compared  with $30,000 last year. The depreciation iu  the revenue is due entirely to the actiou of  the mine owners in refusing to accept the  changed conditions brought about by the  enforcement of the eight-hour  law.    On  the other  hand, a  considerable  increase  will be made iu the revenue of the  government upon account of  the  payment  into the  provincial  treasury  of assessments in lieu of the performance of work  upon prospects.    This year the receipts  of the government from the  Slocan  riding under this head will be  fully $7000,  which is an amount  in   excess   of the '  amount received  from  the  entire province in former years.  It is said upon good authority that the  government is considering the  advisability of readjusting the method  of taxing  mining companies.     Under the  present  arrangement even  when the mines  are  working  to  their   fullest capacity,  the  revenue  of the government from them  does   not   equal the   expenditure   upon  roads, trails  and bridges.    In short, the  mining industry, instead of being a source  of revenue to the piovince, is a drain upon the provincial exchequer.   The change  proposed is said to be the  application of  the income tax to the profits of the mining  companies.    It  will probably be  so  arranged that the assessor will be  given  power  to inspect the  stock registers  of  the mining companies   operating in  the  province.and have power to assess and collect from thecompaniesthtoughtheiroiiiee  in this province, a tax equal to the iu- .  come   tax   upon  the earnings  of   their  shares.    It has been estimated that when  the mines  of the  Slocan  district are in -  operation the aggregate dividends of the  year equal at least $3,000,000, upon which  no  tax  is  paid, the  money in most instances being taken  out of the country  altogether.    If  this   earning   was  made  liable  to  the  income  tax and provision  made for its collection, the provincial exchequer would be eniiched to the extent  of $1.*5,000 per annum, and the tax would  fall  upon   only   such   as  are  wrell able  to pay.  Five Thousand British Reconnoitre.  Durran, November 21.���The Natal  Advertiser confirms the report of fight- '  ing near Willow Grange. It says : "Five  thousand British left Estcourt on Wednesday afternoon for a reconuaisance.  "They Siu-p-ia&l the Boon, at '. o'clock  Thursday morning and occupied their,  position, bayoneting sixty of the enemy.  At daybreak the Boers opened with quick  firers. The British artillery was unable"  to i each the Boers, and the captured  position therefore became untenable and  was evacuated. Subsequently the artil-  leiy was brought into action, and the  Boers fpll back. Their object having  been attained, the British returned to  T.stcourt." ->   The Mayor is Right.  Mayor Neelands was interviewed yesterday upon the subject of improvements  to the city wharf. As the result of the  inteiviewit was gathered that the mayor  will not favor any action by the present  council, lie is of the opinion tliat the  wharf is. no more dangerous now than it  has been for several months past, and  that there is no reason why the next  council should not be allowed to deal  with the matter. In this the mayor is  undoubtedly right*r~as���the-succeeding  council Will hava money available foe the  work before it could be "-.edited bydeben-  tuies.    The Opinion of a. Practical Miner.  A practical miner, who for the last four  months has been working an eight-hour  shift in a mine not a hundicd miles from  Nelson, was asked yesterday his opinion  as to the amount of work that he did in  eight hours as compared with what he  did when working ten hours. He replied:  "A good miner will average as much work  in eight hours as in ten. When 1 say  good miner, I mean a miner tliat knows  hib business.." Asked what proportion of  miners lie considered good, hi^ replied:  "Well, three out of five can be depended  on to do ti good day's work."  The Announcement was Premature.  Aldei man Moore of Kaslo is legistered  at the Hume. He hits just come from  Sandon, and says that while the announcement of the settlement of the  tiouble between thr* mine owners and  minei.**- is premature, the prospect for an  early adjustment of the difficulty is good.  In any e\out, he says, the geneial opinion is that the Payne mine w ill resume  woik at once. A supply of beef has been  taken up to the mine, and it is reported  that tho company luis placed a large order for general supplies with H.Giegericb.  of Sandon.  One of the Leaks.

The  next day  my  jid her mother, escorted by marquis  Serade, inspected my choice,  fine here say parenthetically that  Id  de la Parade is my bete noire;  les not prevent him, however, from  Iconstantl^at our home.

If he lias  given up tho way to his clubs, it comes of  not paying his dues. Two things about  him excite my admiration, not my sympathy : he is the best-dressed and the  wittiest man in Paris. I insist that in  his situation he ought to flaunt fewer  new coats and bons-mots.  He declares that he will die single���  and no one doubts it. Hence he never  compromises any one. He can be seen  for twenty days with the same woman  without calling forth comments. People  chaff him on the subject, and he joins in  the laugh. "II codnait Dieu et le Diable."  liy good luck he has preserved his slim  figure, and is younger than the youngest  when he rides, skates, plays tennis, leads  the cotillion, recites monologues, organizes charity bazaars, drawing-room comediettas, and country-house parties. His  wit has the reputation of "making a dead  man laugh."  When the express pulled into St. La-  s_are station, my wife and 1 were on hand  flourishing New York Heralds as if Ave  had them on sale. A tall girl, admirably  made and graceful, stepped unhesitatingly tOAA'ard us, held out her hand, and in  the purest of French asked us hoAA' Ave  Avere. We might have parted only the  day before. She announced that she Avas  ready to accompany us, expecting her  maid to grapple Avith the customs officers.  But the soubrette did not understand the  language of Racine any better than Racine himself would if he came back to the  world today.  "You stupid thing ! Hoav provoking !"  exclaimed Miss Walton, stamping her  slim foot.  morning on her radient face, when we  went to lunch at her hotel. She had invited the marquis, of course. Fernand  pronounced a single English sentence, and  Enid at once expressed the Avisji of meeting my mother-in-law. I inferred that  La Perade had put the idea into her head.  What au invaluable friend !  The ill-effects of our proximity to the  "Washington" Avere soon evident. Enid  and my Avife became inseparable. I must  admit my personal duties Avere light. La  Perade Avas their usual escort. I don't  know how the man always manages to  have his pockets stuffed Avith tickets for  theatres, private viewn���all sorts of interesting places.  The American girl AA'as continually  lunching and dining Avith us. My Avife  insisted that it Avas out of the question  to set our potau feu before tin heiress accustomed to the luxuries of the country  of dollars, especially when the aim Avas to  bring this heiress into our family. To  judge from the cook's bills, it AA'as an inheritance, not an heiress, that had dropped on us from America. But, after all,  a rich brother-in-law is not a bad thing  to have. And shall I add : the prospect  of seeing my mother-in-law tackling an  American girl dyed-iu-the-AVool would  have reconciled me to greater sacrifices.  The introduction took place. Jerome  dropped in on lis accidentally one evening  at dinner, in full uniform. The uniform  AA'as ray mother-in-laAv's idea ; she considered Jerome particularly fetching in his  Avar-paint A complete failure! Miss  Walton, avIio sometimes indulged in the  frankness of an enfant terrible, explained  amused me, an amusement largely due to  my mother-in-laAv's convulsed, indignant  face. Miss Walton had procured nie  other satisfactions of the _>,une nature,  and I am not a man to forget a turn done  nie.  It Avas one evening���at my house, of  course���as Ave were leaA-ing the table.  Jerome, my mother-iu-laAv, and the marquis were our guests. At some trifling  jest of Enid, La Perade and Jerome  placed their pocket-books in her keeping.  Ou Jerome's Avas simply inscribed the initials "J. C," his family being of old and  excellent blood, but Avithout a title. On  the marquis's portfolio, on the contrary,  aviis stamped a coronet that might have  served for a napkin-ring.  Enid expressed great admiration for  the heraldic attribute and its charming  effect on one's lingerie, for La Perade, intoxicated by his success, had displayed  his pocket-handkerchief. He Avent  farther than that, luckily, in articles of  clothing ; but we AA'ere successively treated to a vieAV of his porto-monnaie, his  Avatch, his hat-band, his cuff-buttons, and  the knob of his cane. At each fresh coronet, Miss Walton broke into cries of admiration, while Mme. de Chauneville'.s  broAvs drew closer together.  Enid, seeing the old lady's marble face,  inferred that she Avas condemning this  enthusiasm as plebeian. "You must excuse me," she said, sweetly. "I am not  used to marquises' coronets."  "Neither are the La Perades, mademoiselle," replied Mme de Chauneville, disdainfully. "That is Avhy they make an  abuse of the ornament."  bitterness: "Perhaps you had better  arrange something���a hop, for instance,  to amuse the girl. She has told you Iioav  she adores dancing, and you knoAV Avhat  a valseur Jerome is. This is AVhat any  truly affectionate  brother-in-liiAv Avould  do.    But "  A sigh, an upAvard toss of the head  finished the sentence. I retorted in a  smothered rage:  "Very AA'ell, madame! You shall have  your dance. OtherAvise, till the end of  time you will declare I was the oue Avho  prevented your --on from marrying his  Americaine, if by chance she should not  be touched by his true sentiment!"  For a feAv days the house enjoyed a  treacherous, halcyon calm. We saAV less  of Euid than usual: Jerome Avas fearfully  cut up about it, of course. If he complained to her���alas! in too discreet terms  ���that she Avas invisible for days together,  "I liA'e at Worth's," she would reply;  "the horrid man is late AA'ith my frocks.  Aud I am leaving soon!" "Alas!" sighed  the artilleryman, Avith a sigh that blew  aAvay Enid like a rose-petal in a breeze.  I said oue day to my brother-iu-laAv:  "Why don't you accompany Enid to  Worth's?"  "Oh!" protested my mother-in-laAv, with  an outraged blush.  "Cher ami, you must rea.lly come to the  front more. Before the soiree you must  dine with us, au champagne; I forbid you  a drop of Avater. This time you must not  miss the opportunity. I expect you to  conduct yourself like .a hussar of the old  school, do you hear?"  The morning of the great day the house  ft 4 MAN, fry rtfon-l  I    /mfiu/se f's /c acT ffits  DR. JEKYLL"  ���MR.  HYDE"  All at once a providential*. personage  dropped as from the cloud**.. It took La  Perade tAvo minutes to shake hands with  me���pretending he had run across us by  chance���get an introduction to Enid, and  conclude: "1 Avas waitiug for a friend  who must have missed the train. I trust  Miss Walton Avill allow me to come to the  maid's assistance" (he knew English, the  plotter!) "while she goes to her hotel to  rest.    By the Avay, Avhere are you  stop  ping  -to Enid.  As the ladies turned to go, the clever  dog Avhispered to me: "Mme. de Chauneville sent me to reeonnoiter. Mazette! I  can assure her she is going to have a  charming daughter-in-l&AV."  It had been decided that Miss Walton  should dine Avith us en trio that evening.  But she proA'ed so desirous of showing  her gratitude to La Perade for his kind  offices that he had to be Avired to make  up the quartet. I must admit that,  thanks to him, the new arrival passed the  evening in a gale of laughter. The parasite shoAved himself a clever diplomat,  too. He managed to praise my mother-  in-law most naturally. He told touching  anecdotes of Jerome's childhood and  youth. A French boarding-school girl  would have dreamed all night of the fascinating officer.  But Enid AA'as neither French nor  boarding-school girl. Not a sign of insomnia could   be.   discovered   the   next i  to us that the military career���at least in  the lower grades���is looked cIoavii upon in  her country. The conversation came to  a standstill, and for a whole quarter of  an hour���the first���I did not hear Enid  laugh. I saAV her eyes turned with  amazement upon Jerome's glass of Avater.  Latterly Ave had drunk nothing but  champagne from one end of the meal to  the other, folloAving the American fashion.  The campaign against Enid's heart had  begun feebly. The artillery, if not routed, had, at least, caused no ravages. We  joyfully noted that Jerome Avas luckier  at the next meeting, ou the following  Sunday. He had not been able to resist  a lively admiration for the young American girl. Enid, AA'ith charming grace,  gave the first signal for a flirtation, but  Jerome, a Frenchman to the marrow, had  not the ftwntest conception of this New  World art. He heaved sighs, accompanied by long, tender glances, instead of going to laugh and chaff Avith Miss Walton  in a certain cozy corner that the experienced marquis had prepared purposely  by means of a screen aud a palm, lie  himself made use of it more than once  Avhile Chauneville Avas kept in his garri-  sou at Bourges.  The young foreigner's naivete infallibly caused one to pardon cetain defects  of education or taste. I recall an instance  that others perhaps Avill condemn more  harshly than  I   did.    I * admit   that   it.  The original La Perade received his  title--and his name too, for the matter of  that���in 1820, in the person of Fernand \s  grandfather, a fact voluntarily forgotten by the ex-young man. Our marquis  said nothing, having nothing to say; but  the expression of his eyes suggested that  he Avould not soon forget the scratch to  his armour proprc. The evening ended  coldly. From that time on Ave saw far  less of the man Avith the crest, though  there Avas no absolute breach. Miss Walton began to know Paris like a book, and  no longer troubled my Avife to accompany her���nothing strange so far as an  American girl is concerned.  It Avas June; Jerome had a fortnight's  leave, and Avas making the most of it to  accomplish Enid's conquest. Mine, de  Chauneville Avas sanguine.  "Jerome is getting on," she repeated.  "It is iioav only the question of tho occasion for his declaration. With American girls everything depends ou the occasion.    Jerome had uo opportunities."  "Not my opinion at all," I replied.  "What more does he need ? Not later  than yesterday 1 sent the tAvo of them  off to the Eiffel ToAVer! Must I arrange  a boating-party, so that Miss, Walton can  be rescued from a watery-grave by your  son's strong arms?"  Belle-mere   detested   my   irony,   -.and  usually retreated at  the  first'. dose,   but,  this time..she merely returned with quiet.  AVas given over to pillage. The carpets  Avcro remoA'ed, the floors waxed, chairs,  music-racks, and platform were? brought.

As to my mother-in-laAv, I  beheld her checkmated for the first time.  But I soon caught the AA'arlike flame beginning to glow in her eyes. Her lips  moved; she aviis about to speak.

He entered the army at the age  of fifteen and served through the Austrian  Avar of 18f5G, and afterward as a A-olunteer  in the army of the pope. When the Avar  Avith France aviis declared he reentered  the Bavarian army, and at the age of  tA.-enty-one receiA'cd a AA-ound so seA'ere  that he Avas left a cripple for life. Then  he determined to study for the church,  but suddenly, in the midst of his studies,  announced hiscouA'ersion to the doctrines  of socialism. Since then, for more than  tAventy years, he lias devoted his time to  the spread of soclulisin among the Democrats of BaA-aria,  tc\  President Steyn, avIio occupies the high- ;  est position in the Orange Free .State, has  risen through his oavii determination of character and his* "untaint-  able honesty from the lowest to the highest position in the state. For six years  he studied law in England and Holland,  and returned to his native country in  1882, AAdien-he aviis twenty-fiVe years of  age. From that point he never looked  back. Young Steyn Avas raised to a  judgeship Avlion he was only thirby-two  years of age, and a year before that he  had been appointed attorney-genera], and  a year before that he had declined the  mayoralty of Bloemfontciu. He had a  brilliant career nn the bench, and Avhen  the piesident, Mr. Reitz, uoav the chief  adviser of president Kruger, resigned, Mr.  .Steyn aviis elected by a largo majority.  Next to queen Victoria, the prince of  Wales has cost England more money  than any other member of the royal family. pSince IKOIJ. the year in Avhich he at-  -tiiincd-his majority .-he-has drawn- from���  the country nearly $1.1,000,000. When  he became twenty-one lie came into accumulated revenues of the duchy of Corn-  ���*.. all amounting to $J_)008,*>05. Since  then, the average yearly payment to tho  prince of Wales from the duchy loyenues  has been $*_0<','G0. In addition to this,  the nation pays him the animal sum of  $S1,0S0 as compensation for tho abolition  of certain ancient duo.-) on tin coinage.

The English trade papers haA'e Avithin  the past six months devoted considerable  space to the discussion of printing Avithout ink, a subject which has considerable  interest to all avIio are engaged in making  books, whether they be papermakers,  printers or publishers. The basis of the  beheme is an invention for printing by an  electrical process, the patents cOA-ernig  which have been acquired by an Knglish  corporation.  3<Yom Avhat can be gathered from the  various printed accounts*, the printing by  this method is affected without the use  of "ink in any form, by simply bringing  tlie plate in contact with chemically  dampened paper, linen, silk, wood, or  other material, the result being a good,  clear impression, th<^ density of which  KuTb^varied as desired. The print obtained by this process resembles in clearness a copper-plate or litho-engraA'iug,  .ind is obtained in a more simple manner  than by letter-press printing. The ordinary printers' type blocks, forms,  stereotypes or electrotype*;, constitute in  themselves a suitable printing surface,  and may be used in a similar Avay, merely  coming in contact Avith the damped  paper to form the print.  The chemical  additions to  the  paper  which make it .susceptible to  the electric  .���urrent are to be added to the pulp, and  are  said   to  be .so cheap as to cause no  appreciable increase iu cost.    The paper  docs not depreciate by keeping in stock,  and can bo supplied to the printer in the  usual form of flat reams.and in reels.    It  '  is the intention of the patentees to grant  licenses on moderate term-,  to  paperma-  kers, so that there Avill   be no necessity  for changing the usual source of supply.  The saving to those AArho adopt electrical  printing -will be primarily in the  cost of  the ink and in time and labor.  It is claimed that all printing presses  iioav in use can be adapted, at a small  cost, for electrical inkless printing. Tho  only changes will be to leave off the  rollers and all raoA'able parts of the inking arrangement, lit a thin sheet of fine  rolled zinc around the cylinder as a conductor, connect the negative and positive  poles from the electrical supply of the  press, and it is ready to print. The same  electric motor that drives the printing  press %vijl also supply the current for  printing.           A Story-of Kruger.  President Kruger is minus tlie thumb  of his left hand. In his youth it wits  badly wounded.-and rather than nurse  the troublesome member he cut it off.  Some time ago, in discussing  the present  .situation, and wishing to illustrate Iioav  he Avould do with sir Alfred Milner, as he  had with his predecessor.**, he began with  the little finger of hiS'left hand : "1 was  too much for sir George Gray." Then, annotating AA'ith his third finger: "I avhs  too much for. i-ir Howard Berkeley."  Passing to the middle finger: "I Avas  too much for sir Bartle Frere." Next  Avith the index finger: " 1 was too much  for sir Hercules Robinson, and 1 shall be  too much for sir���alle maagte !" he exclaimed, for he harl come to the place of  the missing thumb.. The incident is said  to haA'e depressed him not a little, as he  is very superstitious.  EUINBD BY SOLITAIEE.

A Boer That,Has Earned Ill-fama.  Pieter Arnoldus Crouje, commandant  of the   Boers   besieging   Ma_ekili3j��_vhas  earned considerable ill-fame.

It AA'as his men who fired  the  first shot   at  Pdtehefstroom   which  brought on the last Avar.   He is notorious'  for his treachery. Despite the fact that he  kneAv of the armistice and that supplies  had been sent for the beleaguered garrison  at Potcbefstroom, he neither gave the  garrison notice thereof nor did lie admit  the supplies.   Tlie operations during tins  siege Avere conducted with* unusual' brutality, and the blame rested upon him.,  Moreover, it AVas to him that Jameson  surrendered at Doorukop, and his ill-faith  in the matter has been clearly demonstrated. Neither flag of truce nor armistice nor the usages of civilized Avarfare  are respected by him. He is A'cry popular among the more violent of the Boers  because of his rabid anti-British sentiments.

Two Minds Changed.
A young couple in a Lancashire Arillage
had been com ting for several years. The
young man one day said to  the  Avonian :
"Sail, 1 canna marry thee.''
"JToav's that?" asked she.
"I've changed my mind," said he.
"Well, I'll tell you Avhat we'll do," said
she. "If folk know that 't's thee as has
giA'en me up, I shanna be able to get another chap, but if they think that I've
given you up then I can get another
chap. So we'll have banns published,
and Avhen the Avedding day comes the

this woimin to be thy AAedded Avife?' and
tha must say'I will.' And Avhen he s,iys
to me: 'Wilt thou lnwe this man to be
thy wedded husband?' 1 shall say 'I

The day came, and when the minister
said: "Wilt thou have this woman to be
thy Avedded wife?' the man ansAAered :
"I will."
Then the parson said to the AA-oman :

"I knoAV that," said the young \A'oman,
"but I've changed my mind since."
Queer, if True.

perhaps   the   queerest    municipality  in
America.     Accouling  to major  Charles
Smith, the author, avIio AA'ent to Pelzeron
a lectin ing tour, the town is one of  7000
inhabitants,  and  every  foot of land is
owned and controlled by a southern  cotton-mill corporation.    With  all its large
population the toAvn  has  no  policeman.
There is no mayor, no city council or al-
dermanic boaid, aud no organized government of any sort.    Lawyers are  uot permitted to live  Avithin  the tov* n's limits.
There is uot a colored person in the toAvn
though some feAv icside on the  outskirts.
Captain Smythe is the  moving  spirit of
the enterprise.    He  is  the head  of the
mill corporation, and his word   is laAV in
the town.    lie is  knoAvn   personally by

The  petition is .being freely signed, us petitions usually are, the signature of thirty-  four merchants who use the wharf being  appended to ib.
