 y:y~r-  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  NINTH YEAR  NELSON:  SATURDAY MORNING JANUARY 19 1901  PRICE giVE CENTS  CALCULATED  TO  MISLEAD  LOCATORS OF MINERAL CLAIMS  MUST BE MORE CAREFUL.  A Supreme Court Decision That Should  be a  Warning  to  Mining  Men,  The judgment   of   the   supreme  court of Canada lately delivered by  Mr. justice Gwynneforthefull bench  in the now famous appeal   case   of  Coplen   vs.   Callaghan    respecting  mineral claims   in, the Slocan district arrived from   Ottawa   yesterday morning.   The fact's of the case  are briefly as follows:   The   Cube  Lode mineral claim was located  running in a northerly direction,and  so described on the post of location  as well as on the records.   The , re-  . spondent believing the   location to  have been made as described on the  records, to_wit: in a   northerly direction staked the ground running,  southerly from the appellant's posts.  It so happened, however,   that the  appellant  staked   his   claim   in   a  southerly direction but by mistake  described it as staked in a northerly  direction.   "Both parties wore therefore staked over the same ground.   ���  The appellant sought to save himself by claiming, the   protection **of  section 28 of the Mineral Act.   The  section has been the cause of more  litigation than the whole remaining  portion' of the Mineral Act.  It reads  as follows: "Upon any dispute as to  the title to any mineral claim, no  . irregularity happening' previous to  the date of the record  of   the last  certificate of work, shall affect the  title,thereto, and* it jshall   be   as?.  sumed* that up to that date the title  to such claim was perfect, except  upon suit by the attorney-general  based upon fraud."  Mr. justice  Gwynne's judgment  * reads as follows:  -,>i- �� That ~* the* -description* of the*  :Cube Lode claim as recorded by  the appellant does not precisely  conform to the provisions of the  statute of British Columbia in force  in that behalf is not disputed. The  evidence, indeed,-leaves no doubt in  the matter,' and it is in fact admitted. The:only question therefore which, as .it appears to me, is  .at all necessary to be decided- in  the present appeal' is whether the  deviation from the prescribed was  calculated to mislead and did in  fact mislead William Callaghan,  now deceased, when subsequently  recording the Cody and" Joker  fraction claims located by him on  behalf of persons whose title was  duly transferred to him in the life-  __ti me of deceased _of_jtvhose_ estate,  the respondent is administrator.  The Cody and Joker fraction claims  as recorded cover portions of the  Cube Lode claim as claimed now by  : the appellant, but.do not,touch the  Cube Lode claim according to. the  description as recorded. The whole  . contention of the appellant is that  all objection tcf the defect in his recorded description of the Giibe  Lode claim is removed.by his, certificates of work done by force of sec. 28  of chap. 135 Revised Statutes of British Columbia; but whatever effect  that contention might Jbe entitled  to in an action between the. appel-.  lant and ' the provincial government, it has no application here  where the contest is solely between ���  the appellant and the respondent;  in'which the sole question is;  whether the ownerof the Cody and  Joker fractions claims as recorded;  have not by reason of the error in  the Cube Lode claim as recorded  acquired superior right to the claim  of the appellant to so much of the  land coyeiied by the "records of.: the  Cody and1 Joker claims as the appel-  Jant.asserts claim to.as part of the  Cube Lode claim as :now claimed by  jhim, although such land is not  within the" description of the Cube  Lode claim as recorded.    Y  "That'the error in the; description of the Cube Lode claim as recorded was calculated to mislead,  and that in point of fact the Cody  and Joker fractions claims were  'ilocated and recorded as they were  by reason of "such misleading error,  have, been found as facts by the  learned judge who tried the case,  and such his finding is well supported by the evidence, apart altogether from any question of fraud  in any person whomsoever.  "The appeal, therefore, must be  dismissed with costs."  Jt is therefore settled by this ease  that the granting of a certificate of  work is no protection to locators  locating their mineral claims in  such a manner as will tend to mislead other parties.

No - further news has  been received from theyVard line  steamer,' Vigilance, aground off the  banks of Los Colorados, about 80  miles west of Havana, and it is believed that ��he is going to pieces.  There has been no communication  whatever from the westward.  Died in His Pulpit.  Chicago, January 18.���A special  to the Tribune from New Orleans  says:. The Rev. Hiram H. Revels of  this city died while addressing his  congregation from the pulpit. He  was formerly United States senator  from Mississippi and a leading .negro politician of the state.  The Sandon hockey team were  defeated by the Nelson team in < the  game played at the rink last evening by a score of 7 goals to 2. The  game was one of the fastest ever  played in Nelson, and the Sandon  boys took their defeat well. The ice  was in fair condition and the game  went off without a hitch from start  to finish. Over 200 spectators'were  in attendance and a continual cheer  from the crowd was kept up until  the last.   > ~      ' '��� -"'.,-  ., ��� The game was called shortly^ before 8:45, and during the first half  was decidedly under the control of  the Nelson boys. During the ��� first  ten minutes of the first half the  puck was kept-well up against the  Sandon goal but a few minutes later  the Sandon boys made a ' rush  and by a clever- pass and a fluke  made by'goal tender -Neelands, the  Sandon_bdys'scored .the firs. goal.  This* was the only goal they' scored I  in the first half.. The first goal J  scored in favor of the Nelson boys  was made shortly after by Wet-  more. The last ten minutes of this  half was the fastest part of the  whole game. The Nelson team during this period did some clever  playing, and -in quick succession  Thompson scored the second, and  third goal. The fourth goal was  shot by Perrier.  The last half of the game was not  "so fast as several of the boys tired.-*  During the first fifteen minutes of  this half neither scored, the puck  being kept well to the center. After  twenty minutes had elapsed Nace  made a clever combination play to  Perrier who made a neat goal. The  -Sandbn_boys~again~madea~ru'slrand~  in less than two minutes they  scored their second and last game  against Nelson. Thompson shot the  last two goals for Nelson. During  the last half McKinnon of the  Sandon team received a slight injury and had to ^withdraw, and .in  order to make the teams the same  strength Wetmore withdrew from  the Nelson side. The combination  of both! teams was only fair. Many  good plays were made by all the  boys at various times throughout  the contest.  The Nelson teams plays a return  match at Sandon on the 28th.  The line up of the teams is. as  follows:        '"  NELSON. SANDON.  S Noelandfi Goal W.Clittb  C. Archibald  Point............ J. Crawford  C. Jeffs..... .Cover Point... .H. Jackson (captain)  J.

D., of Evanston,  Illinois, who is one of the directors  of the American Boy Mining Company of Chicago, operating the  American Boy, situated near Cody,  arrived in Nelson yesterday after  making a trip of inspection of the  property. He visited the property  to make his annual report on the  condition of the mine to the eastern  stockholders. He reports that the  mine is looking well and there is a  large showing of ore in the "three  upper tunnels, on which stoping is  progressing steadily. Regular  shipments are being-made to-the.  Nelson smelter. The company has  a contract of' 100 tons" of ore .��per^  month to keep up. . There is'- no  work being done in the lower tunnels, as the ore. is .of such a nature  that it cannot be used by the smelters at the present time. The ore  of the upper working is of a carbonate nature, and is" required''by  the smelters for fluxing purposes.  : A tunnel has been started on-the  Black Hawk claim, which adjoins  the American Boy, and which is  owned by "the,same company.- The  The tunnel is now in about,; 50" feet  and has been in ore all the way.  When the first shot in opening up  the tunnel was fired it uncovered a  a clean' galena vein of six inches.'  The development in this direction  will be. pushed to a considerable  depth. - - -  Mr. Green also stated that the  Ydirectors.of the company .werewell  pleased with the way in which Mr.  McGuigan' "of .Spokane was "conducting.the work at the property.  During the past few months  several improvements have been  made at the property. New ore  houses have been erected'and large'  loading stations have been erected  at the mouth of tunnels No. 6 and  No. 2. These are in every way convenient and are giving the 'best of  satisfaction. Prom the workings'  tracks have been laid to these and  ore is readily placed for delivery.  The company has contracted with  the company controling the Last'  Chance mine for' the use of its  tramway and by this the ore  is easily delivered to the transportation point. From a late report  made by the consuitlng engineer it  _is_said_that_the_value_of_^.the_ore_in,  sight at the present time will  amount to $100,000.  Mr. Green, during his stay in that  section, also made a visit to tlie  Last Chance property, which is  situated near the American Boy.  He stated that the property was in  excellent shape, but shipments had  been; suspended owing to ���' the  difficulties > with the smelters.  The Last chance company is tinder-  taking.a new enterprise in the shape  of running a tunnel for prospecting  purposes. The tunnel was started  near the foot of the hill and is now  in to the depth of 800 feet. When  completed it will be from 1700 to  1800 feet in length and will have  passed through and under the entire  five claims owned by the company.  The claimsare Blizzard, Last Chance,  Star Light, Galena and Galena  Fractional. The vein of the Last  Chance claim has been encountered and passed. It was much  richer at this 'depth ~ than on the  surface. The. company expect to  encounter the vein of the Galena  claim in a distance of 40 feet.' The  tunnel is being driven at the rate  of about five feet per day. When  the tunnel is completedY the company will have obtained a depth of  about 1000 feet.     ,,..;.Y  Montana's. Increased Output.  F. P. Gutelius, local resident engineer of the C.:P. R., who has been  in Butte for the past ten days, has  just returned. He expresses himself as greatly impressed with the  great advancement that is being  made there in the mining industry.  Thousands of tons of ore are being  mined daily, and a great era of  prosperity seems to .have been  entered upon. Noticeable advancement has been made in the smelter  industry, and a new smelter to the  capacity of 5000 tons per day is  being erected at Anaconda. The  buildings have been completed, and  the machinery will be installed at  once. There is already at this point  a smelter with the capacity of 5000  tons per day, and although in operation day and night its capacity is  not sufficient to treat the enormous  amount of ore that is received.  From the mines throughout the  district, to the smelters, three trains  .consisting of 40 cars' each arrive  daily. These bring to be treated  about 6000 tons of ore. The present  shipments'will be doubled when'the  new smelter is jn operation.  Developing Ten-Mile Prospect.  Godfrey Birtsch, who owns- a  ���promising., prospect on Ten-mile  creek, whicli empties into Kootenay  river near Slocan Junction, leaves  this morning to do some work-on  the property.- A prospect shaft has  been started and it is the intention  to continue it" to a depth of 100 feet.  The vein is about two feet wide on  the surface/but'widens with depth.  The ore is silverJead, giving assays  returns of 248 ounces silver.. This  is the'only-prospect on the creek  that is being developed, although a  large number of, claims have been  staked.' '    -' *' ,j:   Yesterday's Mining Records.

McAllister, Andrew J.   Campbell  ��� and William __. Death, three of the.  four persons indicted for the death  of Jennie Bo'sschieter, a mill- girl of  Patterson, New Jersey,   who   died  while in the,company of   the three  men on the night' of October 18th  last,-were tonight adjudged guilty,  of '-murder- in. the^ second ;degree.  According-;to the \New-~Jersey,-law  the maximum penalty for the prisoners   is   30t years   imprisonment.  The jury took 14 ballots,] and after  summoning judge   Dixon . and  the  prisoners filed into the court room.  They   returned   at    8:15    o'clock,'  having been out four, .hours" and  29 minutes.   The prisoners,   when  brought in appeared very nervous.  McAllister seemed to be more excited   than   any   of   the    others.  He set biting his lips while waiting.  Campbell thrust his hands into his  trousers pockets and clenched his  fists   within them.   Death  looked  anxiously about tlie court-room for  a moment and then assumed the  same attitude as Campbell.   When  _the_jverdict_j-vas__announced__the_  prisoners exhibited neither elation,  relief or   surprise.    Judge   Dixon  thanked the jury, and said he believed the verdict a just one.   He  then   dismissed   the   jurors   until  Monday morning at, 10 o'clock. The  court then rose and--.the prisoners  were taken back to the jail. -:.,:"���;  Army Reorganization Bill Passes.  Washington, January -18 Just  before six O'clock this" evening the  senate finally disposed of the army  reorganization bill. The measure  originated in the senate the final  question was not upon its passage,  but upon, agreeing to. the senate  amendments. They were agreed to  by a vote of 43 to 23. A determined effort was made today to  amend the bill so as to provide  against the sale of liquor in the  Philippines, and to prohibit the importation of any kind of intoxicants  into the island, but it was defeated.  A notable speech was delivered during the day by Mr. Hale of Maine,  who, while opposing the increase in  the strength of the army, stated  cogently his reasons for supporting  the bill.    ________  Promotion for Sampson.  Washington, January- 18.���-Secretary Long has written letters to  the chairman of the congressional  naval committees callings attention  to the varions recommendations for  promotions in the navy contained in  his last report, and urging their  favorable consideration by congress.  He particularly advocates the revival of the grade of vice admiral  of the navy, presumably with a  view to the promotion of rear admiral Sampson to that grade, the  effect of which would be to make  him tlie second ranking officer in  the navy, admiral Dewey being his  only superior*  Nkw York, January 13.���A dispatch to the Tribune from London  says: Military men are disappointed  by the feebleness of the measure  adopted by the war office for easing  the situation in South Africa. They  assert that sir Michael Hicks-Beach  is again at fault, as he was before  the campaign opened, in withholding financial supplies, which are indispensable. He is a prudent and  careful" financier, who insists at  every turn that the war expenses  must be kept down* to the lowest  possible point.    -  Lord' Roberts is credited with  having advised the ministry to send  out 50,000 fresh troops and to withdraw an equal number of men from  the lines of communication. Military men assert that this - was the  true policy,'since it would have relieved at- least one; fourth of the  troops now in" the field and encouraged those left behind to believe that their turn, would. come.  The .expense . of transportation  would have been, considerable,.but  the army would not have, become  dispirited and stale; and would  ha-v-e beeh^greatly invigorated. The  chancellor of the exchequer is currently reported to have objected  strenuously to this ,'course, and  small" relief measures, such as fresh  levies of Yeomanry and Australians,  have been substituted' for a comprehensive policy..        r" - * '  Lord Rosebery has once again set  the nation thinking..

They are annoyed, at being so frequently told of late that England's  foreign trade is- suffering from  American and German competition."  Lord Roseberydid not supply any  conclusive, answer to the question  of how England was to fight America and Germany successfully in the  matter of trade, and the Standard  remarks that' if anything effectual  is to be done the leaders of opinion  must abandon their meritorious  generalization and apply themselves closely to details of the  problems on which they are so  fond of touching.

Queenstown, January 18.���Sig  mund Hertze of New York City,"  who was arrested after the arrival  here Thursday evening of tlie Allan  line steamer from Halifax, charged  with forgery at the instance of the  United States authorities; was not  brought before the magistrate here  today. The police are awaiting the  arrival of a Scotland Yard officer  to take him to London for extradition. The sum of ��350 was found  on Hertze, but no trace of the  missing bonds was discovered. As  there is no charge against his wife,  whoaccompaniedher husband across  the Atlantic, she was not searched.  She is known to have a number of  bank drafts. Their clothing is  elaborate and costly. Mrs.' Hertz  spent last night with her husband  at the police station. This evening  she went to a hotel. Hertz is ab'so'^  lutely silent on the subject of his'  arrest. Sigmund Hertz, who wasv  the confidential financial man of  Stiefl, Sachs & Co. of New York  city, had been^missing 9ince January 2nd. Members of the firm  allege that he is ah embezzler to  the extent of $100,000, and that his  method of operation' was to forge  the firm's signature to checks, cash'  them, and destroy them when returned by the bank.

FEAR COMMERCIAL WARFARE  LORD      ROSEBERY      SETS     ALL  .   ENGLAND   THINKING.  QUEEN VICTORIA'S HEALTH  CAUSES GREAT   UNEASINESS IN  ENGLAND.  There is Nothing Sufficiently Alarming in the Physician's Report -  to JuBtify the Anxiety. ���  London, January 19.���Although  it is fully understood that there is  no cause for alarm beyond what  would naturally be felt. at the indisposition of any one ' of "the"  queen's age, the official announcement 'issued " last evening . - has  caused a shock to the court, the  effect of which it would be'difficult  to exaggerate. Her majesty's ab-  m solute freedom from, illness during  the longest reign in English history  has led her people to regard her  almost as more than mortal, and  the mere novelty of having to face  .the possibility of a' regency, alonel  suffices to create unnecessary apprehension. It is necessary to go back  to'a date prior to 1820 for a. similar  situation. Since that time there  has ^ never^ been an-, interruption of ' a smooth ' working  of the constitutional '.machine.,.-. No  one, not-even the.^princef of > Wales,i  "cariact for the queen without- the  authority of parliament, and as no  steps have been taken to summon  parliament it may be taken for  granted that her majesty's physicians have only adopted measures  . of precaution, and that she is still  able to sign absolutely imperative  documents though relieved of the'  worries of routine affairs. '  The illness of the dowager empress of Germany, tlie sudden death'  of her majesty's old friend lady,  Churchill, together with the deaths  of the duke of Saxe Cobourg last  summer, and of prince Christian'  Victor subsequently, and the incidents of the war in South Africa'  have been great trials to tlie queen,  but even within a week she has. re  ceived lord Roberts, and sent a message of condolence to tho widow of  Dr. ^reighton, late lord bishop of,  London.

In the first place,  this may be so because war is an  operation of such incalculable importance,     producing     such    immeasurable results, that any nation  hesitates to trust its fortunes to  the issue, and in the  second place,  there is scarcely any territory in  the world now to acquire except  countries so densely populated that  the cost of their acquisition would  be incalculably greater than their  value to the conqueror."'

There seems to be a slight difference of opinion as to whether the  Canadian Pacific*raised its haulage'  rates on ore since January 1st. The  railway people say they lowered,  the rate a dollar a ton from all  points since January 1st; and the  smelter people say the freight and.-  ' treatment charge has been reduced,  a dollar a.ton; but that the deduction from lead value has been increased 30 cents per hundred!  pounds,' which is equal to $3 a ton  on ore that carries 50 per cent lead.  It seems that, from these statements, it is the smelters, and not .  the Canadian Pacific railway, that  -*"-ilrto~bIame fortheincreasedcostof"  treating Slocan lead ores. '  The business interests of the city  are steadily increasing, andthejr  are multifarious. To carry them  on successfully requires good judgment, and they must be continn-  ally watched. The one official held  responsiblefor the successful conduct of the city's business affairs is  the mayor, and the mayor should  be paid an adequate salary, if he ia  expected to do his whole duty.  Nelson should pay the mayor not  less than $2000 a year, and one of  the first acts of the council should  be the introduction of a by-law  fixing the mayor's salary. Pay the  mayor good wages and see that he  earns it. The city will be money  in pocket by doing so.  Nelson gets over her municipal elections very"  easily. She don't have any���the inayor and.  aldermen all going in by acclamation. Nelson is  right up-to-date in all that she does, and one of  tho most progressive and enterprising towns in  tho west.  The above is' from the Victoria  Colonist. Yea; Nelson is a progressive and enterprising town, because the mossback >and intolerant  self-seeking-, element have not been  - allowed to gain control; of its civic  government., It is progressive and  enterprising because its people have  always been independent and not  knucklers to either individuals, corporations, or governments.    It will.  facturing centler of British Columbia, and what the people of Nelson  determine to do they accomplish.  But, all the same, the compliment  paid by the Colonist is taken in the  spirit in which it is tendered, and  may the town in which the Colonist  is printed become the most attractive spot on the Pacific Coast for  the tourist and the home-seeker.  The Cranbrook Herald says that  Nelson settled her municipal fight  in a sensible way. There was no  municipal fight in Nelson; there  was an election by acclamation.  THE .GENUINE   WORKER.  [By P. Shonfeld.]  In very few countries, since the  ruling power. was wrested from a_  privileged class, has the privilege of  government by the people been exemplified to a higher degree than  in our own fair land of Canada.  The aristocracy of democracy has  fully developed and the highest  positions in the land are open to  competition to the humblest toiler.  The cause of the workingman is  progressing day by day and one of  the most hopeful signs of the times  is that people are beginning to respect the dignity of labor and to  recognize the fact that labor is the  source of all wealth. This is but  right and it is to be hoped that the  leaven may spread rapidly and  honest manly toil be accorded that  place to which it is justly entitled,  but which has too long been denied.  The day is fast approaching when  -the merits of a skilled artisan who,  from the raw material, fashions and  makes an article of commerce will  be considered as equal to, if not  superior to those of the middleman  or merchant who merely passes it  from One hand to the other.  In this country all are workers or  ought to be' yet it is difficult to  make the manual toiler at the  bench or on the anvil, in the factory or on the farm believe that his  condition is not essentially different  from that of other classes and to be  candid, no section of the. community has been more presistently  taught by politicians: that legislation only can afford it proper relief.  The working man of today has  the inestimable advantage of becoming acquainted through the  cheap press of every question  that  continue to be progressive and I vellim to his immediate welfare as  enterprising because its people are I weil aS a]] subjects of the highest  determined to make it the manu-J attornments.   He is perfectly aware  of the important position he holds  in the human hive. He knows that  in the federal parliament; as well as  in the provincial legislature that  the principle of direct responsibility to the people exists l whil t  in every city and town the municipal system on the election basis is  in full operation. The rural districts have also their representative  institutions wielding enormous  powers. Every genuine worker  should therefore consider it his  bounden duty to educate himself to  the requirements of the times so  that he can conscientiously acquit  himself in a manly way in the  sphere of action in which he moves.  Our workingmen need not necessarily devote their leisure  moments to abstract questions on  the relative merits of free trade  and protection but should jealously  watch and insist upon a just and  economic administration of public  affairs, and while studying to what  degree he is personally affected  thereby should not neglect closely  observing the various processes by  which legislation is effected.  We have the press teeming with  wonderfully written articles on  imperial federation, annexation,  unrestricted reciprocity and its  twin sister, commercial union.  Splendid subjects for argument and  foundations for debate and magnificent matter for political oratory,  but earnest workers may safely  confine themselves to the consideration of the construction and expansion of more immediate and direct  personal affairs.  The laws which have been established for the benefit of the workers have done much to ameliorate  their condition, and no other province in the Dominion can equal  British Columbia in giving freedom  of combination to the toilers,  enabling them to have a fair day's  pay for a fair day's work and preventing capital from tyrannizing  over labor.  Passed a Talkative Winter.  New Orleans Times-Democrat.  A man who spent' the winter of  1898 in Dawson City was relating  some of his experiences to a party  of friends in the corridor of the  Grunewald    last    night.     - ''From  November clear on, to March," said  he, "it" was far too cold for "any kind  of work,- and all we could do was to  huddle around the fires and talk. It  was the most talkative winter of  my life, yet there was oue topic we  never exhausted;   in fact, we invariably drifted around to it, -no  matter where wje started. That was  what we'would do when  we got  back to 'God's country with' a big  stake.   A good many of the boys  had the gold already stored away  in tin cans under their bunks, but  not one   of   us   doubted that he  would strike it rich before he left,  so we were all on an equality when  it came to discussing future plans.  I remember a big   jovial Irishman  by the name - of  O'Halloran, who  had    accumulated   1200    'ounces,'  worth about $18,000, and who used  to declare the first thing that he  would do when he got home would-  be to buy a hack.    He-was always  a day laborer before he came to the  Klondike, and   his life had   been  made up of long stretches of hard  work and miserly saving, followed  _by_brief_and_glorious_drunks,_in-  which he rode in hacks, with his  legs through the windows, chanting  bacchanalian hymns. To him hack-  riding   represented the climax of  human luxury, and to have a hack  of his own, in which he could ride  continually without being 'braced'  for fare was the pinnacle of his  dreams.   Imagination could go no  further. .Another    lucky    gold;  hunter was a young man named:  Andrews, who had been a, waiter  in a 'Frisco restaurant and whose,  familiarity  with numerous  'high-  toned' delicacies, acquired by studying the bill of fare, gave him considerable social prestige.   He used  to tell what he would eat when he  got   backj* and the recital   never  failed to interest a large audience.  'Now tell us wot yer goin' to order  for de ong-tray,'  somebody would  suggest, and lie would proceed to  reel off a section of menu card in  French  while   his listeners  licked  their chops o-nd rolled their eyes in  ecstasy.   After a long diet of bacon  and beans,   Andrew's   monologues  were positively, maddening.     One  of; _-the.   simplest-minded   of   the  crowd.was a chap from Iowa who  could never be induced to express  a wish for anything except a suit  of pink silk underclothes. He knew  a faro dealer at Seattle^ who pos'  sessed   such   garments', and   their  weird  .beauty   together with  the  fact that they cost $35 a set, had  appealed .powerfully to his imagination. He had fully $20,000 'planted*  in an  old   oil   can, but- he never  allowed; his fancy to roam beyond  the pink silk underclothes.    I trust  he is   wearing them   now,   but I  doubt it.   The only man I knew  who made' a really accurate forecast of  his proceedings when he  reached civilization was a big pro-  *  m  m  m  9\  m  (ft  (ft  (ft  (ft  (ft  (ft  & GO  ;^-iv��ff*.  ************************************.

The United States is on the eve of  a great revival ��� of religion. We  have this upon- the authority of  many eminent divines, whose prophecies to this effect have been  widely published. Among them are  the late -Dwight L. Moody, who  said shortly before his death: "A  most remarkable religious awakening is at hand." ��� The Rev. Quiucy  L. Dowd, of Illinois, who has issued  a pamphlet upon the subject, says:  "It is certain that a revival is now  forming, and that it is no one class  of believers, no one class. of minds,  who predict the revival." Professor McGiffert, of Union Theological  Seminary says: ''I verily believe,  standing on the threshold . of the  new century, that we are on the  eve of one of the greatest and most  profound religious revivals that  the world has seen.  A national revival campaign has  begun in the.city of New York by  the formation of a Committee of  Fifteen,;whose prescribed duty is to  conduct a national evangelistic re-  revival throughout' the entire country through the medium of the  churches and church societies. Its  platform and principles are to be  - forwarded'to every minister in. the  United States.      ,, - .[  That the public in this country, is  now iu an unusually- sensitive and  receptive condition is shown by.  many* social signs which, have  steadily .augmented in significance  during, the past few years. Among  these'may be mentioned the enormous number of persons who have  chosen to witness- great religious  plays; the multitudes who have  purchased books like "In HisSteps'.'  and the fact that many great newspapers, whose directors are in. the  closest touch with public opinion,  have latterly devoted their editorial colums to ethical essays and' religious sbrmons in a way " that has  not-hitherto'been known in the history of the daily press.       ** ,  These are the signs of the times.  It is. now proposed herein to call  attention to still another sign, a  sign .of the greatest significance; a  sign so portentous as to be awe-inspiring; a sign not only that the  above-mentioned prophecies are  true, but also that the coming revival, before it has reached its end,  will bring about a religious social  arousal such as has never before  been known; that this revival  "whiclris^ce"rtainly"c6mihg, will"be"  one of those great historical religious epochs which are the most  memorable   and    most    potential  Paid-up Capital,  Reserve Fund,  88.000.000  $2,000,000  ACGRECATE RESOURCES OVER $65,000,000.

The point is, not that they ought  to^but that they inevitably must.  The. meaning of the evolution of  the^ GnristiiSti-TeHgiOn-" isthis: That-  . for nineteen ^-hundred years the;  various great [ churches and sects  which have _ounded themselves  uponv> the.. Biblcj have differed, < argued and disputed.'.. That' great  theological * rebellions" and' deser-  tibns from existing religious bodies  have taken place many times; that  liitndreds of thousands of controversial books have been written,  producing a perpetual change in  th'-e way in which the Old Testament and the New.; have Ybeen  viewed and interpreted and received by Christian believers. .  : That-all great churches, like that  of Rome, have constantly altered  their intellectual position on minor  pui'nts of dogma; that new churches  and sects, born of new intellectual  impulses or new religious desires,  have constantly sprung into life.  In short, that for nineteen centuries there has been a natural, incessant and ever-advancing change  in the interpretation of the Bible,  which change has taken place under  the action of a clear and definite  jaw well ktiownY-o science. j  IN THB UNITED STATUS:  New York, N.

HOLT,  Manager Nelson Branch.  ���The-evolution bf physical science,  as above referred to, means that  for nineteen hundred years' man,  relying only Yon his'' perceptive  faculties and his reasoning powers','  has been trying to solve the great  mysteries of Force, "of Matter, of  Life and of the Universe. That,  looking backward over this great  period, one sees an army of earnest  minds working in their laboratories . or observatories, slowly,  patiently and painfully adding little  by little to/ the store of human  knowledge.  That. from time to time great  working hypotheses or theories  have been conceived, put forth, believed in for a time and then  abandoned in favor of new working  hypotheses, new theories, which  have in. the same way been  abandoned in their turn. The  great, ' transcendant minds like  those     of   Galileo,   Newton    and  Copernicus; great mathematicians,  astronomers, chemists and physicists have lived great lives and  won immortal renown by their  mighty, magnificent struggle  against the unknown. That in  short, for nineteen hundred centuries*, in; science, as in religion,  change has been the perpetual law,  and human knowledge, as a purely  human. quest,. has   ever advanced  ���toward some future intellectual  position which it has been impossible to forecast or foresee. We  have seen the present prophecies of  religion.. What are today the prophecies of science ? In opening the  International Medical Congress at  St. Petersburg, in 1897, professor  Virchow,. generally held to be the  leading mind in physical- science in  the world of today*, said:  ''Gentlemen: The epoch in which  the. present congress meets is. a  memorable one.  :But a; few., years  .sejirtrate   lis   from' a   coming   em  1 which is awaited with apprehension  by some, though hopefully expected  My] others.    All are prepared for  great changes, but nobody knows  what they-will be, and even men of  science are unable to say.". ......  YAnd in his long and learned, but  .doubting, address, reviewing the  century and describing the' present  position of biological science, he  found; only one-, scientific dogma  which he felt certain would endure  ���viz: "All life is from the cell,"  and even since 1897 this point, too,  has'been shaken.  But here is a prophet of science  who speaks in a more hopeful strain  and with a more eager heart. Professor Oliver Lodge of the University of Liverpool may fairly be  called one of the foremost, one of  Jar," at the Royal instituted London:  "The present is an' epoch of astounding activity in physical science. Progress is- a thing of months  and weeks, almost of days. The  long line of isolated ripples of past  discovery seem blending into a  mighty wave on the crest of which  one begins to discern some oncom-  ing^magnificent generalization. The  suspense is becoming feverish; at  times almost ' painful. One feels  like a boy who has been long on the  silent keyboard of a deserted organ,  into the chests of which some unseen power begins to blow a vivifying breath. Astonished, he now  finds that the touch of a finger  elicits a responsive note and hesitates, half affrighted, lest he be  deafened by the chords which it  would seem he can now summon,  forth almost at will."  What has happened in the last  ten years of brilliant scientific discovery is this: That the physical  sciences in their investigations have  reached the boundaries of their  special domains. They have agreed,  from astronomy to chemistry, upon  this proposition: "There is only  one universal aud identical force'in  action in the universe; all matter is  under the control of spiritual laws."  Biology calls -" this force "life;"  physics calls it "thought," "etheric  energy", and "volition;" religion  calls it "divine will." Science must  progress.. It cannot stop. And the  only possible avenue of its future  progress is the investigation - of  those spiritual laws which it now  admits and declares govern all material things. It has in its natural  advance crossed the frontier into  the territory of religion and today'  stands firmly planted upon religious  ground..  As a matter of fact, it is now the  conviction of evolutionary science  that churches are coming together,  that the sciences are coming together and that religion and science  are coming together in one union,  final and complete.���J.
