Canal Must Remain Open in Time of
War as Well as Peace to Commerce
and Navies of the World.
Washington, Marcli 2i.—The
communication from the British
government giving reasons why
that government declined to accept
the seuate amendments to the Hay-
Pauncefote treaty was made public
" today. Lord Lansdowne, secretary
of state for foreign affairs, sets
forth at "some length the circumstances under which the convention
was signed by the British ambassador, lord Pauncefote, and the secretary of state, showing that the
government accepted the convention unconditionally as signal proof
of their- friendly disposition' aud
their, desire not to impede the execution of the project declared to be
'. of national importance to the people-
of the United States'.
Two of the amendments, in
the opinion of lord Lansdowne,
present most formidable difficulties..
The first of them—the so;called
Davis amendment, which reserves
to the United States the right of
taking any measures which it .may
find necessary to secure by its own
forces the defence of the canal—
appears to his majesty's government's to involve a distinct departure from the principle which -
until now found acceptance with
both governments, namely, that in
time of war, as well as in time of
peace, the passage of the canal is to
"remain free and unimpeded and^is
to be so maintained by the 'power
or powers responsible for its control.
With this "amendment added to
- the convention the United States,
it ~'is_ presumed,- would be within
theirrights if at any moment when"'
it seemed to them their safety required it in view of warlike p're-
' parations not yet commenced, but
contemplated, or supposed to be
contemplated by another power,
they resorted to warlike acts in or
near the canal—acts clearly incon-
. sistent with the neutral character
which it has always been sought to
give it, and which would deny the
free use of it to the commerce and
navies of the world.
He goes on to show that there is
no analogy between the tenth
"article of the Suez canal convention
and the Davis, amendment, adding:
-■"The banks of the Suez canal are
- -within -tlie dominions of a terri-
- torial sovereign who was a party to
- "the convention and whose estab
lished, interests it was necessary to
protect,   whereas    the   Nicaragua
tory   belonging   not only   to   the
United States but to Central Ameri-
' can states, whose sovereign rights
other powers ca'nnot claim to dispose." -\   „
Lord Lansdowne states his objections to the amendents which
strike out article 3of theconvention
under which the high contracting
parties, engage" immediately upon
the convention, being ratified to
bring it to the notice of other
powers and to invite their adherence, as follows: "If that adherence
were given the neutrality of the
canal would be secured by the
..whole   of   the    adhering- powers,
^.without that adherence it would
depend only upon the guarantee ,of
the two contracting powers." The
amendment, he thinks, not only removes all prospects of the wider
guarantee but places Great Britain
in a position of marked disadvantage compared with other powers.
If his majesty's government were
to   agreed to   such an  agreement,.
• while the United States would have
a treaty right to interfere wjth the
canal in time of war or apprehended
war and while other powers could
with a clear conscience disregard
auy Of the restrictions imposed by
the convention, Great Britain, in
spite of,her enormous possessions
on the American continent and in
spite of her Australian colonies and
her interests in the east, would be
absolutely precluded from resorting
to any such action, or from taking
measures to secure her interests in
and near the canal.      •
Lord Lansdowne instructed the
British ambassador to explain.-. to
the secretary of state the reasons
set forth in this dispatch why his
majesty's government feel unable
to accept the convention in the
shape presented to them by the
American ambassador, and why
tiiey prefer as the matter stands at
present to retain unmodified the
provisions of the Clayton-Bulwer
"His majesty's government," he
says, "throughout their negotiations
have given evidence of their earnest
desire to meet the views of the
United States. They would, in
this connection, have been ready to
consider in a friendly spirit any.
amendments of the government of
the United States not inconsistent.

Legation Guards and Indemnities.
Washington, March 25.—Mr.
Rockhill, our special commissioner
at Pekin, has been heard from
further respecting the conditions
there aiid it is said that his report
is confirmatory of the latest press
advices. '.Touching the question of
a site for the legation guards, which
appears to be giving concern, it is
pointed put that the United States
was the first of the powers to re-.,
duce her military force in China to
the status of a legation guard and
that now our guard is of the proper
proportion, namely, two companies.
The European powers, in some instances, have in contemplation
several times this number for their
own guards, and it is that fact that
leads to the conviction that the
Chinese court will not return to
Pekin unless all the powers reduce
their contingents to the proportions
of our legation guard.
The advices from Pekin and other
quarters are beginning to stir up
some misapprehension of tbe indemnity claimed by the different
powers.- -A recent published report
was that., the ' German claim
amounted to $80,000,000. This
proves to be overdrawn. The actual
amount of the German indemnity,
it can be stated . positively, is
$60,000,000. The. basis for .this is
the"".large- 'military - establishment
which Germany sent to China and1
has maintained up to the present,
amounting toJL7,000 men.-
Petition From Cape Colony Officials."
London, March 25.—Sir Robert
Reed today laid on the table of the
house of commons a petition from
Messrs. Merriman and Sauer respectively, the former treasurer of Cape
Colony and the former commissioner of public works of Cape
Colony, asking for permission to
- address the house -with respect to
the peace settlement in South
Africa and specially against the
establishment of a crown colony
form of government. The petitioners have dropped the idea of'protesting against annexation.
China Anxious. .
London, March 25.— The Chinese
Luh, called at the foreign office this
afternoon and urged the British
government, to bring pressure to
bear in order to prevent Russia
from securing the necessary signatures of the Manchurian government. The government is still in
the dark tonight as to whether the
agreement will be signed or allowed
to lapse when the time expires,
March 20. The officials of the Jap-~
anese legation are inclined to believe Russia will succeed in getting
the necessary.signatures.
Newspaper to Be Sold.
Philadelphia, March 25.—Assistant United*States attorney-general
Beck, in the suit tfr set aside the
assignment of the Philadelphia
Record vs. William M. Singerly,
filed his report in the United States
court here today. Mr. Beck finds
that Mir. Singerly was sane at the
time fie transferred the newspaper
property to assignee George B.
Earle, junior, and Richard Y. Cook,
and the transaction was therefore
valid. He decrees that the Record
shall be disposed of at public sale
and settle claims in dispute amounting to over $2,000,000. -
Motor Cars in Collision/'
Washington, Marcli 25.—A head-
on collision between two passenger
trains on the Washington, Alexandria & Mount Vernon railroad
occurred today, about four miles
south of this city. Nobody was
killed, but many passengers were
injured, two possibly fatal. The
accident occurred in a fog, which
prevented each motorman from
seeingthe other train. The motor-
men saved themselves by jumping.
Both cars were demolished.
The Telephone Company and the City
Are at Loggerheads  as to
Stringing Wires.
At the weekly meeting of the
city council last night there was a
good deal of business disposed of,
and an important announcement
made by the mayor that the city
debentures would bring a price
which be considered highly satisfactory. His w orship was not in a
position to give ihe exact figures,
as he was awaiting certain letters,
but possibly " today the arrangements will be perfected.
The   finance   committee   recom-
''  ■__ ...     -
mended a number of payments,
amounting to $1363. They were
approved of.
The° public works committee
recommended that sidewalks in
different parts of the city be laid.
The list has already been published
in The Trihune. It was also
recommended that a four-inch pipe
be laid to the Kootenay Lake General Hospital to improve the water
service of the institution.
Among the suggestions was that
a six-foot sidewalk be laid from
Latimer to "Hoover street on the
east side of Josephine street.
Alderman Irving said he believed
the people of the district did not
want the sidewalk there.
• This clause was referred back to
the committee.
Alderman Selous suggested that
a sidewalk .be laid to the railway
crossing at the boathouse wharf,
foot of Josephine street. A few
planks would be a great convenience there, enabling people to get
to. the wharf without wading
through mud. .".The suggestion was
adopted. v-. ■»■■       -. --"  "-
The fire, water and.light committee recommended that uniforms be
provided for the chief of the fire
brigade and also the driver. This
was agreed to.
, It was further recommended that
the Kootenay Lake Telephone Company, not having lived up _to the
terms of the agreement drawn up
by the city solicitor, be denied the
use of the city's "electric light poles
and called upon to discontinue
stringing their .wires on same.
A report on the same subject was
read from superintendent McPhee,
advising the course. suggested by
the committee. It was explained
that the telephone company had
not signed the agreement nor paid
the rental imposed—25 cents per
annum for each;pole.
The mayor said that the fact of
wires on the electric light poles
would seriously affect the lighting.
The company did not sign the
agreement, nor did they pay the
rental imposed.
District superintendent Hodge of
the telephone company addressed
the council, explaining that the
agreement had not been signed
owing to the fact that the secretary-treasurer of ;the company was
away in theJ Old Country. He
asked that the matter be postponed
for a week iu'order that he might
communicate with his principals.
This was'agreed to.
W. H. Bullock-Webster wrote
asking that the lane at block 48 between Latimer and Hoover streets
be opened up. There was a rock in
the center which ought to be removed. ''v-iCi'*'."".
The communication was referred
to the city engineer.
A petition was read from the
Hall Mines Co. .complaining that
the tramway company-had blocked
up the road and asked that the obstructions be removed and the road
put in order.
Referred to the board of works.
- A petition was read asking for a
sidewalk on Hoover street and Hall,
whicli with others of a similar
nature, was referred to the board
of works.
It was proposed that Charles A.
Waterman be appointed road tax
collector witli remuneration at 10
per cent.
The mayor thought it advisable
that the collection should be deferred for a month or so. This was
a bad time of the year to start out.
Alderman Selous complained that
20 per cent of the mining population
paid their road tax.   The custom
was to make a round up of sure
men and leave the? difficult ones
over.   - '_".-.
The appointment was confirmed
and the direction of the collection
left with the mayor.
The mayor said he regretted he
was not in a. position just then to
report to the board as to the sale
of debentures. However, he was
happy to say that the offers made
were far above "his , expectations
and would be eminently satisfactory to the board.      j
P. Nipou, proprietor" of tho Nelson Laundry, appeared before the
board and complained that the
charges made agains^him for water
were excessive. He' yva's willing to
pay for what he used,~ but he considered it unfair that he should be
charged as much as larger establishments. > The matter was referred to the finance committee.
The mayor called attention to the
fact that some people were complaining that a pesthouse had been
established at .the east end of Baker
street. There wasf no ground for
such complaint, as the' house in
question was simply used as a place
of detention in a case of emergency.
The diphtheria cases there were improving, and in a few' days all
would be over.
Alderman Irving called attention
to the continuance of the Chinese
practice of carrying swillpails along
the public streets in broad daylight.
The mayor undertook to instruct
the proper officers to prevent the
nuisance. [ 7.
Alderman Patterson suggested
that the Baker street bridge be re-
planked and the" Ward street ravine cleaned out. -"     -   -    .. .
The mayor reported that the
chief of the fire- brigade inspected
and condemned-Lthe opera house.
There was no fire protection there
whatever. "If ever .a fire occurs
during a performance you will find
one of the worst ..'calamities - in the
history of the country."
Alderman Selous • condemned the
place as the -worst fire-trap he
knew of. "_.       .    ...

Twenty-Five Lives Supposed to Have
Been Lost and a Quarter-of a
Million in Property.
Birmingham, Alabama, March 25.
—Shortly before 10 o'clock this
morning a fearful tornado swept
over the southern section of this
direction. The number of killed is
estimated at 25. Only five of them
are white. The destruction of proporty is placed at a quarter of- a
million dollars. Eighteen bodies
have been recovered from the debris
up to dark and scores of injured
have been sent to the hospitals.
Among the dead are: Dr. C. C.
Chapman of the firm of Tally &
Chapman, who conducted a private
infirmary in this city, and the wife
and infant child of Hon. Robert J.
Lowe, chairman cf the Democratic
executive state committee. The
storm struck the city in the extreme southwestern- • corner and
plowed its way eastward,"leaving a
'path 150 feet wide through the entire southern section, extending
from Green Springs on the west to
Irondale on the east, and, continued
its course on until'its?* fury was
spent in the mountains beyond
Irondale, a small town six miles
east of the city. The morning
dawned cloudy and sultry and
grew more threatening as the day
Clouds began to gather, and shortly after 9 o'clock sharp lightning
flashed from the southwest. The
air became heavy and stifling. The
velocity of the wind suddenly began
to increase, and out of the overcast,
sky the dreaded funnel-shaped
cloud made its descent. Hugging
close to the earth it passed through
the city in leaps and bounds with
terrific force and was away to the
east before the people realized what
had happened. The altitude of the
cyclone was not more than 75 feet.
The negro shanties and cottages in
the lowlands in the path of the
storm were the principal sufferers.

The'Casualty List..
London, March 20.—The official
casualty list issued last evening indicates a renewal of active operations since the failure of the negotiations between lord Kitchener
and general Botha. At Hartebees-
fontein March 22nd and 23rd two
officers were killed and three
wounded and four men killed aud
twenty wounded. There also
seems to have been heavy fighting
at-a place near Gredgedacht on
March 19th, and near Ventersburg
"on March 16 th. Ventersburg, the
scene of the defeat of Delarey, is

Great Britain's Advantage.
London, March 25.—Sir Theo
Doxford, speaking today at the annual meeting of William Doxford
& Sons of Sunderland, said that as
long as the heavy import duties on
steel continued in the United States
British shipbuilders would be able
to get American steel at from 20 to
40 shillings less per ton than the
price the same steel sold for in
America. Hence the steel combination, selling its surplus production in Great Britain, would keep
up the cost of American-built ships
and keep down' the cost of ships
built in Great Britain.

the ground that an application in
their behalf was pending before the
gold commissioner at Rossland and
that they were not aware that the
British Columbia Southern application would be heard at Nelson,
'although due notice ot same had
been posted. The appeal was heard
before the chief justice at Rossland

_Eight:Hour_Day_ in_Russia._
Russia is about the last "country .
in the world where one  would expect to find any of the doctrines of
trades-unionism in force, and hence
the news that a Russian employer
has voluntarily reduced  the daily
hours of labor in his large factories
from twelve  to  eight is  naturally      ,
causing much comment throughout   ;
Europe.    This employer is  M. Pan-
keleff, who is one of the magnates '"
of Kakhovka, a town in the government of Khersan.   As the owner of
mills and factories, he employs hundreds   of   men, who, until a few
weeks ago, .were obliged to work
twelve hours daily.   Great, therefore,  was their  surprise when  M.
Pankaleff announced to them  that
they would iu future be required to    -
work only eight hours a- day, and
that their wages would remain tho
same as before.
M. Pank'eleff's neighbors laughed
when. they heard of this reform,
since they felt sure that the men
would not be able to do as much
work as heretofore, but they were
mistaken. The wealthy and sensible mill owner has now made a
public, statement in whicli he says
that instead of losing he has actually gained by the change, since tha
men are more alert," more contented,
and more atteutive to their work
than they were before aud that: as
a result they do more work in eight .
hours than they formerly, did. in

And,  if the right of the province to such  liberal treatment in railway bonuses  is admitted, it follows that the  province would be entitled to the  full fruits of such generosity, which  would mean the placing of it in control of all state aided railway lines  the construction of which cost  $24,000, or'less, per mile.  Ever since federation British  Columbia has been endeavoring to  secure legislation of a restrictive  nature against Chinese and Japanese. The most that has -been accomplished is in the imposition of a  head tax of $100 upon Chinese immigrants, a very small portion of  which is returned to the province  in compensation for the injury  wrought by the presence of ihe  Chinese in the province. Each  year, however, the ranks of the  anti-Oriental party are growing. It  will soon be strong enough to force  the concessions which repeated  solicitations have failed to land.  THE  HUDSON'S  BAY  STORES  The Vancouver World is setting  a good example to the press of  Vancouver.. The World no longer  runs paid paragraphs in its local  column and its patrons can now  take up the local sheet without  fear of running across stray paragraphs on the penetrative properties of pink pills.  Victoria can hardly lay claim to  being a progressive city. Its  people insist that the provincial  government should base its assistance to railway projects upon conditions which existed some years  _ago_instead_of__conditions_which  exist today, and H. Dallas Helmcken,  the city's senior member in the  legislature, agrees with the views  of his constituents. -  The Chinese and Japanese population of British Columbia is estimated at 12,000, or close upon ten  per cent of the entire white population; and of these Chinese and  Japanese residents some 1160 were  naturalized last year, or just about  ten per cent. These Chinese and  Japanese are now entitled to the  franchise, and being entitled to vote  are entitled to sit in the legislature  and frame laws for the government  of British Columbia.  If premier Dunsmuir succeeds in  inducing   the Laurier administration to accept his railway policy, he  will have covered half the ground  to government ownership of railways.   His proposal is, that in view  of the>heavy contributions of the  province to the Dominion revenues,  the federal government should provide two-thirds of the "railway subsidies   necessary for the development of  British Columbia.     This  would mean that in every case in  which a provincial subsidy of $4000  per mile was granted,  the federal  government   would  supplement it  with a Dominion subsidy of $8000.  This would mean a straight gOVern-  zrient subsidy of $12,000 pier mile  for all railway projects which com-  jmended themselves to the provincial  The taking of British Columbia  into the Canadian federation was a  good   stroke   of  business for the  older provinces.    It enabled themj  to secure $42,474,292 in direct "taxation and tariff duties'in exchange  for which the   federal exchequer  disbursed but $28,915,386.   Por the  first ten years the balance was all  against   the   province,   but    since  then the "Dominion revenues from  the province   have   steadily risen  until now they provide a yearly  surplus of from $1,500,000 to $2,-  000,000. This being so there should  not be much difficulty in inducing  the   Laurier   government to give  back a portion of the surplus as an  encouragement to the lead smelting  and refining industry.  It is ' suggested in Victoria that  the action of   the Dunsmuir'government in delaying the' consideration of all railway subsidy measures is due entirely to a desire to  arrive at~some" definite understanding with the federal government  with respect to proportionate assistance, to   railway  development  within   "the   province^ This   it' is  said explains the policy of impassive  silence which the members of the  Dunsmuir   cabinet   have   pursued,  but which many persons attributed  to the Canadian Pacific  Railway  Company's control of the premier  and his colleagues.   Among other  questions    discussed   by   premier  Dunsmuir    and    attorney-general  Eberts, on their recent trip to Ottawa, was the ratio of assistance  _which_British Columbia_9hould,re-  ceive   from the   Dominion to aid  railway "''construction,'  in  view of  the contributions which the province makes to the federal exchequer.   At this time it was suggested  by: the ministers that for the future,  with respect to all railways subsidized in British  Columbia, the federal   government   should   put   up  two-thirds of the subsidy decided  tipon     and      the     province     the  remaining     one-third.     And    as  evidence bf the fact that the Canadian Pacific railway has no hold  upon the provincial cabinet, it is  further   said    premier    Dunsmuir  suggested   that   the proposed   arrangement should be made to apply  to the three railway projects which  were   afterwards outlined   in   the  speech: from the throne, the same to  be constructed as part Of one general system; (1) from Midway, in  Boundary Creek district, to a point  on the coast south of the Fraser  river; (2) from the terminus of the  Esquimalt & "Nanaimo railway to  the   northern   end   of   Vancouver  Island; and (3) from some point on  the British Columbia seaboard to  the northernboundary of the province, to form part of an all-Canadian road to the Yukon.    There is  nothing to indicate any willingness  onthe part of the Laurier administration to meet the overtures of  premier Dunsmuir, but,' from the  proposal submitted by him to the  Ottawa authorities, it is clear that.]  befoi'e the present session opened  the premier was prepared to launch  a new railway policy, and one  which aimed" at securing competition throughout the entire province with the Canadian Pacific  system.     ���  The Right Remedy.  ,. Westminster.  Each dissolution of the marriage  bond is effected by a private act of  parliament after an inquiry by a  committee of the senate into the  truth of the allegations on which  the petition for divorce is based.  Obviously many injured parties are  too poor to secure a remedy in this  way, and the result is an inequitable discrimination in favor of the  wealthy. This is well illustrated  by two applications recently filed at  Ottawa. A Toronto womau, whose"  husband is now serving a seven-  year term for the crime of bigamy,  has petitioned to be relieved from  paying the parliamentary fee, and  an Edmonton man has petitioned  for the same kind of relief, and also  that the evidence in his case be  taken at Calgary as he is too poor  to go to Ottawa. The appropriate  remedy for this state of affairs is  the institution of a divorce court  in such provinces as choose to maintain it,, if not for the whole  Dominion. There is no reason to  suppose, that this would make  divorces more easily obtained, and  it would certainly do away with an  inexcusable injustice.

American energy and enterprise  are spreading south into Mexico,  but not to such an extent as the  nearness of that country might  seem to justify. The insecurity of  life and property, in the republic,  the difference in the language and  the hostility of the people to the  Anglo-Saxon hamper Americans.  But for those who go there and  work hard there are good pros-  .pects. The government has issued  a report giving a good deal of raw  material in the way of facts as to  Mexico. It is intended for the use  of persons who wish to do business  with the republic .or who think of  going there, -  Living is not dear in Mexico.    In  the interior towns and villages the  common necessaries of life are cheap.  Coffee and tea are expensive, and  so are imported goods, owing to the  cost of the duties and the expense  - of transportation. " In the interior  meals may be had at the hotels for  about 50 cents each, and board and  lodging at from $2 to $2.50 per day.  In the City of Mexico living is more  expensive.   Hotels charge from $2  to $10 silver per day.     Good meals  may be procured at any first-class  restaurant for $1.    A tourist intending to   take   a short trip to  Mexico would do well to calculate  his expenses at $10 a day, including  traveling    charges.      Heady-made  clothing is not much in vogue, but  imported English and French cloth  is made up into suits at about the  -same cost as in the United States.  The big dry goods-establishments  are as well stocked as those of the  larger cities of the" United  States,  and for imported goods the prices  vary very little from those prevailing _ here. .  Rents in the City of Mexico, however, are very high. This is'due to  the cost of house building aud to  tlie many taxes, one of. whieh is a  municipal tariff of 12 per cent on  the annual rental. The expense  and taxes on a house costing $10,-  000 to build and renting for $75 per  month is $13.08 per month, or about  17 1-2 per cent of the receipts. Labor is abundant and cheap in Mexico. Farm laborers receive from 20  to 37 1-2 cents a day. There are  instances where the day laborer receives 50 cents a day, but there are  also instances where he receives  only 15 to 20 cents." The secretary  of the treasury estimates the dailyv  wage of farm laborers at 25 cents.  A large portion of the farming is  carried on under - the share' system.  In many instances rations of corn  are furnished to the hired laborer.  In some cases he is allowed a small  "allowance" a day fortius-boardjin  addition to wages; again he is fiir-  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.   Present rate  three por cent.

To farm laborers the  only rations furnished are corn and  beans. In the mines the wages of  laborers vary from 40 to 60 and to  80 cents a day, with no rations. In  factories the wages are from 18 to  25 and 37 to:02 cents a day without  rations.;, A - day's labor" in Mexico  is from nine to thirteen hours.  A Horse Who Rode.  Denver has a horse car line that  is run strictly according to the requirements of the humane society.  When the horse gets tired he ride3  instead of walking.- The line is orily  two miles long, and the poor animal works only half time, for he  pulls the little broken-down vehicle  up the hill and then has a toboggan  slide experience back to the starting  point. Occasionally times get quite  lively in the little "car on'account of  the hilarious spirits within. Shooting out the lamps and "winging"  the horse are of almost nightly  occurrence.  That was made last Sunday night  when about twenty men and  women were crowded into the little  box. All were drunk, and each was  looking for trouble. The car had  just left the terminus on the return  trip and the horse was riding. The  "motorman" was at the brake  handle checking the speed of the  car when the riot broke out. In an  instant there was shots fired from  within that sounded like a pack of  firecrackers set off in a cheese box.  The driver jumped and the car began to roll with increasing velocity.  A stray bullet killed the horse, and  he rolled off his little platform into  the snow. His halter, however,  held fast, and dragged the body for  several hundred yards before it  stopped the cai\  A Cure for Leprosy.  Despite   the   great   progress   in  medical science, leprosy is still considered incurable.     Therefore the  announcement, made by a Brazilian  doctor   in    the    German    Medical  Weekly, that rattlesnake poison is  a cure for that horrible malady has  received a great deal  of attention.  From time immemorial the natives  of   Brazil   have looked  upon   the  rattlesnake   as   a specific   against  skin diseases; they eat the snake;���  that is, all except the head.   This  led the doctor to obtain  the poison  of live snakes by inducing them to  bite into wads of cotton, and to  give to lepers carefully measured  quantities   of   the  poison   diluted  with glycerine.   The first patient  so ^treated was a mulatto woman  who had been afflicted with leprosy  for ten years and was unable to  leave   her bed."   This woman, as  well as fourteen other lepers, improved rapidly���the knobs on the  skin disappeared, the ulcers healed  rapidly and the sense of touch returned.   This,  however,  does   not  imply   that   lepers    are    immune  against snake poison.  The Tramps' Friend.  Probably no man in the world  has sheltered, at a private home,  as many knights of the road as has  farmer Jacob Hiestand of Hereford,  Pennsylvania.    His ^hospitality is  known to all the  "Weary Willies"  who frequent East Pennsylvania,  and.   they.   make    regular    trips'  through Hereford, stopping -at the  Hiestand.    farm    invariably.    The  Hiestand farm is a very fine one.  The barn is largeand built in a manner assuring warmth ������ to the occupants.     Mr.   Hiestand   has   never  been known to refuse permission to  a tramp to sleep in his barn, and  during 1900 he sheltered 752 tramps.  He keeps a record of every -tramp  who sleeps in his barn and the following is a summary for the year  1900:   January,  01;   February,  42;  March, 77; April, 70; May, 77; June,  81; July,  02; August,  GO;   September, 52; October, 57; November, 53,  and' December,  00, a total of 752.  This is an increase of 101 over 1899,  when lodging was  furnished to 651  men and women.   The" number in  1898 was 482.   The largest number  finding rest during one night was  12, while many nights from 6 to 8  sleep   in   the   barn.     The tramps  have never destroyed anything for  farmer Hiestand   and seldom ask  him for food.  'Nelson Branch���Burns Block, 221 Baker  Street.  J. M.

Lord  Rosebery has likewise been married  before, and through his first wife,  the   richest of   all   the Rothschild  heiresses, became immensely rich.  His children are now grown   up,  and his exceptional intimacy with  the royal   family, and   his virtual  withdrawal ���froni    party   politics,  point toward his becoming ere long  connected   by marriage  with   the  reigning houses of England, Holland and of Germany.   As husband  of the duchess of Albany he would  be uncle   to   queen Wilhelmina of  the Netherlands, brother-in-law of  king Edward and stepfather to the  reigning duke of Coburg.     ���>  REMOVED.

Nelson  Russian Concessions at Tien-Tsin.  ;��� London, March 25.���Questioned  5in regard to the Russian concessions  at Tien-Tsin, lord Cranborne said:  Li- Hung Chang signed an agreement granting Russia a considerable tract of land which the Russian military authorities had previously claimed by right of conquest. i-'f The British foreign office  was not aware by what authority  Li Hung Chang signed' the concession, but the Chinese government  had declared the validity, and  therefore it must be reserved for  future examination. Count Lams-'  dorf made a similar declaration on  March 20fch.  Mr. Balfour, the government  leader, announced that the house  would adjourn. April 3rd and meet  again on April 18th, when the budget would be introduced.  .  ,.        Rosebery to Marry.  Rumors of a marriage between  the widowed duchess of Albany  and lord Rosebery are current once  more. For now that queen Victoria  is dead all obstacles to the match  have been removed. The attachment between the earl and the  duchess has existed for many years,  and it is well known that the  duchess would have consented to  marry him long ago had it not been  for the insuperable objection raised  by'queen Victoria, upon whom the  duchess was to a great extent dependent.  The queen was opposed on principle to widows marrying a second  time, and held that this match  would be an affront to the memory  - Boarding and Day School for Girls. Will reopen January 15th.
