 mmm  H  DAILY EDITION   BY MAIL  FIVE DOLLARS A YEAR  WEEKLY EDITION BY MAIL  TWO DOLLARS A YEAR  NINTH YEAE.  THE TRIBUNE: NELSON, B. C, FRIDAY, MARCH 22, 1901  PRICE FIVE CENTS  RAILROAD POLICY OUTLINED  VICTORIA   CITIZENS  INTERVIEW  THE GOVERNMENT.  Company Obtaining Charter Must Build  From the Mouth of Fraser River  ���Work of Legislature,  Victoria, March 21.���The premier and members of the executive  council of British Columbia gave  an influential deputation, headed  by the mayor of Victoria, most satisfactory assurance this morning  that the policy which they proposed to follow in connection with  the construction of a railway from  the coast to Kootenay would be  not only in the interest of the  " province but of the city of Victoria.  The deputation alluded to was made  up of the most representative business and professional men in the  city and was appointed at a mass  meeting which passed a resolution  for a competitive line. In pressing  for bonusing of an independent and  competitive line from the coast to  the interior of the province the  mayor read a telegram which had  been received tbis morning by E.  V. Bodwell, who represents the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern in the  matter:  "New York, Marcli 21.���If you  think advisable, you may announce  that the Great Northern Railway  . and Mackenzie & Mann are equally  interested in the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern Railway. Company stock.  "Jambs J. Hill.  . "William Mackenzie."  Remarks were made by his worship, supplemented by- short  speeches��� from ex-mayor Redfern,  Dr. Jones, aldermen Beckwith and  Bryden. In reply ��� the premier  pointed out that the policy-the'gov*.  eminent proposed to adopt was  that of making the best bargain  possible for a ferry daily from the  . mouth of Fraser river and .Vancouver island. The attorney-general  went into the necessity for the extension of the island railway and of the  " construction of an all Canadian  route to the Yukon, thus insuring  the trade of Klondike to Canadian  cities rather than Seattle, which  had been built at tbte expense of  Canada. In reply from a suggestion by Mr. Helmcken, who accompanied the deputation, the attorney-  general said that the government  was considering a proposition to insert a clause iu the charter permitting the acquirement of the  road after a term of years on certain terms by the province.  Further, they would compel auy  company which obtained a charter  from thera to sign an agreement to  the effect that if ai Dominion  charter was obtained they would  still be amenable to the railway  law of the province.  Alderman Yates expressed the  = fear that the car ferry alluded! to  by the attorney general might! be  run from .Vancouver to Nanaimo  and thence to Quatsimo.thus making  the latter point a terminal one instead of Victoria. The premier replied that all his efforts as a citizen  of this city would be employed to  prevent such a contingency.  ; Alderman Yates said that what  "might be cheapest at this time  might be dearest in the long run by  exposing the country to a monop-  ..._ oly. In reply to this the premier.  ; said , that the Victoria, Vancouver  and Eastern had furnished no-  charts, maps or profiles of their  proposed road, and all that they.  had done to date was to say to the  government, "Give us $4000 a mile  and we will build- the road, pro-''  vided we also get a subsidy from  the Dominion government." ; It  - was, he said, the intention of the  government to control rates and to  derive a percentage of the earnings.  He did not believe in What had  been-done in the past, namely, give  lands and subsidy: to these companies and not be allowed a say in  their control. The attorney-general explained the position of the  administration at some ' length,  although he said that the  government could not pin  itself down to one road  until it had heard from Ottawa,  which had been asked to -deal with  the province liberally in the matter of railway construction. Fear  has been expressed that the policy  of the government was an alterna;  ��ive   one,- namely,   that it might.  sanction a road from the coast or  one from a point on the Canadian  Pacific railway, say at Spence's  Bridge or via the Shuswap and  Okanagan railway. He might  definitely say that any road which  they subsidized must build from  the mouth of the Fraser to the  boundary, thus opening up that  whole country. Further it would  stipulate in the contract that the  company must provide for a; ferry  daily^from the mouth of the"Fraser  TROOPS TO BE WITHDRAWN  VON   WALDERSEE   WILL    ARBITRATE TIEN TSIN DIFFOULTY.  wrecked Wil-  day, tii^^^jip^J^ing been  abandoned.

Vancouver, March 21.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���The young son of  J. W. Lawrence of Hatzic fell  among a pile of burning ferns yesterday and was so badly burned  that he died last night.  It is reported here this evening  that a party of surveyors sent by  Mackenzie & Mann and the Great  Northern Railway has arrived at  Hope after thoroughly inspecting  the line of survey of the Victoria,  Vancouver & Eastern. They report  the route as perfectly feasible.  Chinese Robbers.  Berlin, March 21.���The officer  commanding the German troops in  Pekin cables to the war: office here  that owing to the complaints of the  inhabitants a band of robbers has  been dispersed by captain Periss,  "with a squadron of cavalry, at a  village 48 kilometers from Pao  Ting Fu. Seven of the robbers  were killed and wounded, the others  were imprisoned and handed over  to the Chinese court for trial.  Major von Muhlman started for Pao  Ting Fu with three companies of  infantry, a squadron of cavalry and  a train of mountain artillery for a  place to the eastward of Tao  Nakuan. He is proceeding against  a large band of robbers.  A Prophet Dies. -.'������������  London, March 21.���Ad viees from  Unganda, Africa, dated Thursday,  March 14, says that Muludzi, the  Mohammedan who recently proclaimed himself a leader of a new  religious doctrine in Uganda, died  at Dengo that afternoon under extraordinary circumstances after a  short reign as a prophet.  The Sultan of Imbego, the head  of the ' Mohammedans in Uganda,  denounced the new doctrine and a  native court declared Muludzi to be  an impostor. Thereupon Muludzi  indignantly declared he would no  longer remain on earth. He left  the native court and ascended a  small eminence outside the king's  enclosure where he knelt, called  loudly on Mohammed and suddenly  expired.      "   '  Bank of England Profits.

After  providing for a dividend of 5 per  cent the amount of "rest" was  ��3,022,691.  Lord Lansdowne Explains the Origin  of the Trouble and the Agreement Reached.  London, March 21.���In the house  of lords today the foreign secretary,  lord ��� Lansdowne, announced that  Russia and Great Britain had  agreed to"' withdraw their troop's  from the disputed territory at Tien  Tsin and reserve the' question of  title and proprietary; rights  for subsequent examination. Lord  Lansdowne supplemented the announcement by explaining that the  dispute concerned an extensive  area on the left bank of the Pei Ho,  which the sRussians had occupied  in the autumn and claimed by right  of conquest. Subsequently the government was informed - that China  and Russia had reached an agreement placing -the- area' under Russian occupation. The area, however, comprised plots belonging to  the-Northern Chinese railway and  therefore was part of the- security  of bondholders.      -   -  The line was part of the_railroad  recently transferred by the Russians to marshal, von Waldersee,  who retransferred it to the British.  The necessities of the allies required the construction of a siding  on one of. the plots referred to, and  the presence of British workers on  the plot'was treated as a trespass  on Russian territory. It was sub-  ' sequently alleged that the Russian  boundary, works had been removed  by the British. "When these circumstances were reported the government on March 16 telegraphed  to its ^representative in China that  it tliought the'Vights of the'British  or Russian - troops to occupy the  disputed points could be best settled by field marshal von Waldersee, as the commander-in-chief, and  General Gaselee, the British commander, was instructed to request  the field marshal to settle the immediate difficulties, reserving for  future examination the question of  validity of the alleged private  rights. General Gaselee was also  instructed to refrain from using  force except' to - repel aggression.  On March" 20 the alleged removal of  the Russian boundary pillar occurred, and the government instructed the British minister at  Pekin, Sir Ernest Satow, that Great  Britain was ready to refer the facts to  field marshal von Waldersee On the  understanding that if either side  was found to have committed an  irregularity it should apologize to  third street, the police today became inclined to 'believe that May  Comstock, the 17-year-old daughter  of a wealthy retired merchant residing at Benton Harbor, Mich.,  who disappeared last evening, was  kidnaped instead of committing  suicide, which was at, first supposed. Miss Comstock -was studying music in this city. She left her  boarding house as usual, and later  her hat and cloak were found on  the beach at Sixty-third street.  Mr. Comstock insists, however, that  his daughter had positively no reason for selfrdestruction, and the  police today felt inclined to believe  in the father's theory of kidnaping.

London, March 21.���Lord Cranborne, the foreign under secretary,  in the house of commons today assured Sir Ellis Ashmead Bartlett  that the government considered the  statement of the Russian foreign  minister, count Lamsdorf, February  0 and February 17, as equivalent to  an agreement in regard to Manchuria, northern, Russia and China.  HE PULLED THE  STRINGS  HEARING    OF    LIBEL    ACTIONS  AGAINST LONDON PAPERS.  Arthur Chamberlain Under Cross-Examination" Makes] Some Rather  Damaging Admissions..  "the otheri  The government added that the  construction of the siding should  be continued under whatever conditions the field marshal thought  fit to impose. He (lord Lansdowne)  was glad to say he" had heard the  same from the British ambassador  at St. Petersburg that the Russian  foreign minister, count Lamsdorf,  had proposed���that they should  agree to reserve all questions of  title and proprietary rights for the  extension of the two governments  and that in the meantime orders be  forthwith sent for the withdrawal  of the troops of both sides from  the disputed plots. Great "Britain  had already concurred and thought  the withdrawals should be carried  out to field marshal Von Waldersee's satisfaction.  Lord Lansdowne1- added that  count Lamsdorf had expressed a  very moderate and statesmanlike  desire to avoid any cause for  friction between the two governments, and since the receipt of  count Lamsdorf's proposal the government had ordered the military  authorities to carry out the simultaneous withdrawal of the troops  to the satisfaction of field marshal  von Waldersee, so that there might  be no room for a renewed misunderstanding in regard to the matter  pf debate. His lordship expressed  the hope that the result of the  negotiations showed that what was  only a very small matter of strictly  local importance would not be  allowed to disturb the relations between the two countries.  Think She Was Kidnaped.  Chicago, March 21.���After a  thorough search with drag nets in  lake Michigan at the foot of Sixty-  London, March 21.'���In the hearing today of libel actions brought  against the Star* and* the' Morning  Leader by Arthur Chamberlain in  connection with charges bearing on  the war office contracts, in which  the defendants plead that the  articles printed were. not libelous  and were a fair comment on matters  of public interest, the . cross-examination of Mr. Chamberlain was  continued. He declared he had  formed the opinion that the main  object of the articles was to villify  his brother Joseph, in doing which  they had villified the witness. To  say, as the defendants averred, that  the Kynochs were favored by the  government, was untrue aud  libelous. Arthur Chamberlain considered that it would be dishonorable for him to obtain favoritism  from the government. ���  ���Counsel-for_the~defendants"pro^  duced letters purporting to have  passed between the Kynochs and  the Nobels by which the former had  agreed to keep up the prices of the  powder for which the latter had  tendered to the British government.  Arthur Chamberlain repudiated  all knowledge of the letters. Subsequently, there had been an agreement in 1894 between the Kynochs,  the Nobels and the Chilworths in  regard to a fixed price - for cordite.  Counsel read the evidence given by  the' Nobels' manager before' the  war. office contracts, to the effect  that Arthur Chamberlain told him  he had used his personal influence  to secure the contracts...   .  In regard to the" cordite contract secured for Arklow in 1898,  Mr. Chamberlain said he had not  seen any Irish member, of parliament, but had got local pressure  put on them by telling the workinjg  people that the shops would close  unless the contract was secured.  Here the lord chief justice interrupted, "Youpulled thestrings?" On  further cross-examination, Arthur  Chamberlain admitted that the  Kynochs had secured the government orders for cordite when their  tenders were higher than others.  The case was again adjourned;  "Wheat King", of Kansas.  The "wheat king" of Kansas is a  woman. Miss Rose Packard of  Rush connty has raised over 4000  bushels during the past year, and  its quality has given her an extra  price for a large portion of it. Miss  Packard is still a young woman and  has given her personal attention  and supervision to the work of cultivating each of her great wheat  fields.  TERRIBLE DEED OF AN INSANE  WOMAN.  With Ax and Club She Slaughters the  Little Ones and Then Attempts  Her Own Life.  Coldbrook, Massachusetts, March  21.���Mrs. Lizzie Naramore, while in  a fit of insanity this evening, killed  her family of six children at her  home, a farm house, half a mile  from this village, and then- tried to  take her own life. The children  ranged from 10 years to a babe of  10 months and their lives were  taken by the mother with an ax  and club. Then she laid the blood-  drenched bodies on the' beds, two  on one bed, and the* other four on a  bed in another room'; This terrible  sight met the'eyes of the husband  and father, Frank Naramore, when  he returned home some hours later.  Mrs. Naramore then attempted to  take her own life by cutting her  throat with a razor, and when discovered she was on tlie bed on  which the' bodies of four children  were lying.  Although she cut a deep gash in  her throat and suffered the loss of  much blood, it is believed she will  recover. ��� Medical examiner Walcott of Barre was summoned and  took charge of the bodies, while  physicians attended to the wound  of Mrs. Naramore. She was removed-to the village hospital, where  an attempt is being made to save  her life. At a late hour tonight  the attending physicians were confident she would survive.. During  the evening a number of. neighbors  of the family saw and talked' with  Mrs. Naramore and to them she was  told.how she.killed*, her,, sjbc. childr  Yen. - At the "time"the"party 61 villagers found Mrs. Naramore she'  asked how she did the deed and she  said that she took the lives in four  different rooms and as fast as she  killed one child the body, was placed  on a bed. The children were three  boys and three girls. Ethel, 10  years, .the oldest, while the ages of  Walter, Charlie, Chester, Bessie  and Lena ranged from 8 years to  10'months, Lena being the baby.  Mrs. Naramore told her most intimate friends tonight that she first  killed Ethel and then followed with  the five others, each time taking the  next eldest. Five were killed by  being struck on the head with the  back of an ax, while Lena was killed  with a club. She says she fully expected the gash in her throat would  cause her death and that when her  husband returned at night he would  find all of the bodies in__the_twO-  beds. She appears rational this  evening and displayed signs of sorrow for the deed she had committed, although she was unable to  give any reason why she killed the  children.  When Mr. Naramore reached the  house he was prostrated with grief  in the loss of. his family. Each of  the children had evidently received  several blows, as their heads were  terribly bruised and blood was  scattered in all directions about the  room.  Mrs. Naramore had evidently  made preparations for the deed as  the doors were all locked and barricaded with sticks of wood.'       -.  . Australian Nswb Items.  Victoria, March ,21.���Big bush  fires have prevailed in Australia,  according to news brought by the  Miowera, the largest being at  Myrrhe settlement, which was devastated, and not only were some  twenty homesteads destroyed, but  many lives are said to have been  lost. The noise of the coming  flames was said to have been like  thunder, and the sky was darkened by clouds of smoke. There  were many thrilling escapes, one  woman and her son having been  caught by the flames under a  wagon on a bare road, and although the wagon and contents  were destroyed, they wero un-  burned.  Reports are given of a sensation  at Newcastle, caused by placing a  living man in the morgue attached  to the Newcastle hospital. He was  brought to the hospital in a cab,  and a doctor went out and, casually examining him, pronounced  life extinct.

London, March 22.���In the house  of commons during the discussion  of the army estimates, the Irish  members protested against the  war in South Africa as unjust,  and generally resorted to tactics  for obstructing the adoption of the  votes. Mr. Broderick, .the war  secretary, appealed to them to  allow the votes to be taken, promising that an opportunity would be  given after Easter to discuss army  matters. Finally Mr. Balfour applied the closure, the Irish members shouting, "Scandalous," "Gag"  and similar ejaculations. The vote  for army pay was adopted by 157  to 48, aud the house adjourned at  2:13 a. m.  .  Speculator Prosecuted.  Paris, March 21.���The chamber  of deputies has adopted the commission's report in favor of the prosecution of M.

OF  No Presentment Made���Mine Owners'  - -Association Want Funds to Send  a Delegate to Ottawa.  A  the  of  l_, ^*i*  - . 'W.  ~7#p  *-! see  ,_ (... -  ;- 'is?1  . rCi-  meeting   of   the   council  board      of      trade       was  held last night, president Holt occupying the chair.   There was a good  attendance   of   members   who debated     spiritedly     the     subjects  brought under   notice.    The first  matter   discussed   was    the   new  School Act, but so evenly was the  council divided on the contentious  clauses that it was decided to make  no present'ment.   From the point  of view of those who hold that the  city councils should be represented  on the school boards it was argued  that   the   corporations   having  to  provide the funds for the maintenance of the schools should have a,  voice in the disbursement of same.  It   was   contended,    contra,   that  school trustees and members of city ',J <��|  councils were alike elected by the  ratepayers   at   large,   and   consequently the public reposed as much  confidence in the one as the other.  The  school  board, it  was  pointed  out, submitted a - detailed estimate  of the costs of running the institution,   and   the   city council  made,  provision" for same���except in the,  case of extraordinary expenditures,,  such as   school' buildings, etc., in  which case" the rate-payers would j;  be.afforded ah opportunity of "ex- '  pressing an opinion in the form of a^T^-flf  by-law.   The city ^council was  al- T~'?,^  lowed a per ' capita tax - of $15 on \'y^  the .average daily .attendance dur-  :'-y-  .ing the six months pi'eceding tho-,*-'>bS  ;,datejbf. -.submitting estimate.^ This'  -'being theVcase,-fit was' contended,  there ought to be no difficulty in-  striking a school rate to cover the '  estimate,-and no  reason ^why, the  city council should  be represented -  on the board of school trustees.-  .Clause 7 of the new act was discussed     at ' considerable    length.  This provided for a property quali- ,  fication of $500 over and above any  registered incumbrance.  Some of the members considered  this a wise provision, as it was 'calculated to secure a better class of  men as trustees than if the property- qualification were to be  lowered or dispensed with. During  the discussion it was shown that  while this provision might work  satisfactorily in some communities  it would be unfair iu others, and  that Nelson would come within the  latter category. For instance, a.  manmight-have -property��� assessed-^  at $1200, but might have his house  mortgaged for $800, which would  disqualify him. From this point of  view the property qualification was  not so favorably received.  Having discussed very freely the  pros and cons of the case, the council were so evenly divided that they  decided to leave the matter in the  hands of the board.  A communication was read from  the Mine Owners' Association re- u  questing the board of trade tb con ���  tribute towards the expenses of  sending a delegate to Ottawa to  urge upon the government the importance of legislating in the interests of the mining industry of tho  province and the bonusing of refineries. The council were unanimously disposed to comply with the  request, but there areno funds ou  hand. The secretary, Mr. Swau-  nell, will start a subscription list  this morning and hopes to be able  to raise the necessary amount.  The special committee appointed  to consider the advisability of petitioning tho Dominion parliament to  create a portfolio of mines, reported  in favor of deferring action for tho  present. The reasons assigned are  that the creation of such au office ,  would necessitate departmental  changes which might prove awk-  Avard at the present time. The  committee suggested that the matter be held over until the railway  bills and other important subject3  now before the house be disposed  of. Similar resolutions from other  public bodies, it was added, had  not accomplished the desired results. .  The meeting was not open to the  press, and the above synopsis of the  proceedings was gleaned from the n  secretary of the board.

Hill  may be prevented from squeezing  the life out of the metalliferous  mining and smelting industry of  the province? Yet this is what the  solicitor of the Crow's Nest Southern. Railway Company has asked  the members of the legislature to  believe. . It is a plea advanced with  the certain knowledge that the  legislature will give a railway company .authority to construct its  road,, and. then prohibit it from engaging in the busiuess for which the  , road .was vbiult. It is a game in  which,,.; British Columbia's only  chance is to lose.  ;.The cities of ^Yictoria. and Van-;  couver.are at present engaged ,in  running a.bluff ^upon.t.he Dunsmuir  government.

A loan secured  ���by the property -which it - helps , to  create, and provision for.full knowledge of' the financial arrangements  and'expenditures thereon, might be  regarded as that middle way.

It is also  said. in.; jthat ethereal world from  which all these "straight tips" .cqrne  that Mr. .Hill intends to  build an  immense smelter on tbe Iron Range,  and ship his own pig iron  east instead, of iron ore in bis,own boats.

Canadian natural gap, the importance of  this step can be. realized.  The natural gas beds of Essex  county are among the finest assets  of that most richly endowed district. In two towns, at least, Leamington and Kingsville, the industries are based upon and owe their  prosperity to natural gas. These  municipalities own their own plants,  and let the gas to manufacturers  and other classes of consumers.  Many other towns and villages also  use the gas. All the beds, however,  appear to be l'elated, and a drain  on one affects all. It is alleged that  the American city of-, Detroit has  consumed the gas at a rate which  materially affects the prosperity of  the towns on the Essex peninsula.  The supply to the city of Detroit  comes from the plant of the United  Oil and Gas Company. The gas ; is  conveyed across the Detroit river  by a corporation known as the .Improvement and Construction Company. Both corporations. . are  obliged to be bu t, , subsidiary  .branches of the famous ...Standard^ Oil Trust.. The Ontario  government owns the river bed of  the Canadian half of the Detroit  river and therefore has an absolute  right.to say what plant or pipes  shall be laid down on their side of  the river. .

Y, Journal.  Of the girlhood of Mrs. Nation  (wrote the historian of the future)  little that is authentic can is known.  She is commonly believed to have  been born in Podunki where as  lately as the year 2730 a monument  stood inscribed with her name, her  virtues and her deeds. In that  year it was destroyed by a great  earthquake ���, that- overthrew the  famous city, which was then the  national capital. It is known that  she was of humble origin and was  brought   up   (her   mother   having  . died in giving birth) "on the . bottle." The meaning of that phrase  much in use among her contemporaries, is not accurately understood,  for it is obvious that, unless the  ardent spirits pf that day were materially different from those of our  time they would not have served as  the sole diet for infants. To the  deleterious effects of "the bottle"  on the child's ^health we can perhaps trace that passionate antagonism to strong drink which was the  keynote to her character and career. When little Carrie was eleven  years old, say about 1830, her father removed- to Wihitehita, or  Whickity, a frontier town ih Kansas, or Vermont���authorities disagree. It was here that she began  to hear the mysterious "voices"  that moved her to take up arms  against the "joints." These, it appears, were places in which   strong  jirink^wereniade by daring crimi-  nals and-forced down the throats  of persous who had been seized on  the highways and carried into them.  The evolution of the word "joint,"  as given by the learned and ingenious Potwin Dumbleshaw in his  great work on the philogy of the  ancients, is interesting. A man  who had been carried into one of  these places and made to swallow  the noxious liquid there produced  was singularly affected by it; he  , was so limber as to be unable either  to stand or sit���it was ns if he had  joints all over him. Hence he was  known as a "jointer." Now, in the  ancient Americanese tongue  "horser" was one,who, rode the  now extinct animal called a  "horse," a "schooner" was one who.  sailed in a ship called a "schoon,"  and so forth,..the termination "er"  implying always a certain relation  to a place or thing. So, by an odd  forward-and-back analogy, the  word "joint," meaning originally  a point of flexion in a limb, came to  mean also, through its own derivative, a place where the "jointer"  was joined. "I know not," says Professor Dumbleshaw, "a more curious  instance of the perversion and shifting.of words from thing to thing."  It is only fair to explain that Dr.  Nubler, professor of extinct languages at the Seacaucus University,  holds a different view, to the effect  that Professor Dumbleshaw is an  ass. Por many centuries there has  been much controversy regarding  the "voices" said' to have been  heard by the young Carrie Slupsky  (that was her maiden name), and  many duels are said to have resulted from the conflicting opinions.  The   chief protagonists of Miss  j^lupsky���the men most solemnly  convinced of her veracity and good  faith in affirming her guidance by  the "voices"���are.Bastien Lapage, a  famous author of the nineteenth  century, and Mark Twain (or  Duane), a painter of great renOwn.  Both these worthies, each in his  way, have put upon record their  profound persuasion of the maiden's  actual inspiration by audible voices  in the air, and both were her contemporaries and compatriots. Not  much of the work of either has  come down to us���a few leaves from  the book of Lanage, a fragment of  a painting by Twain���or Duane.  . An odd circumstance is that in one  of the former, Mrs. Nation's birthplace and home of her girlhood is  mentioned as "Domremy." The  same name occurs in several fragments of European literature of  even an earlier date, and these facts  have given rise to much discussion,  evolving more heat than light.  Professor Clambuck, writing in  the year 2641, explains this apparent discrepancy somewhat as follows: In the Pottawottomy dialect,  which in the nineteenth century  prevailed over the greater part of  America among the illiterate "po"  and "dom" meant the same thing���"  a cow. . Now, "dunk" meant a place  of refreshment, or entertainment,  and "reray" is the old Algonquin  word for salt. Having these meanings in minds, it is easy, says the  learned professor, to see that the  names "Podunk" and "Domremy"  are virtually the same: they signify  a place of refreshment for cows, a  place where those animals go for  salt���a "cow lick." It is not, generally speaking, within the province  of the historian to utter dogmatic  judgment in such matters, but this  seems to be a :pretty flagrant: instance of ingenuity. I mention it  only to show to what lengths the  learned will sometimes go in ex;  plaining what is obviously a grammatical error (like the "ablative  absolute" in Latin) or a mere slip  of the pen, as when it was said that  Edwin Markham was born in Bethlehem. ;.-*;  There can be no reasonable doubt  that Mrs. 1 Nation was . born in  Podunk, nor that the writer who  first used the name Domremy did  so in a moment of abstraction. As  to the cows coming to Podunk to  lick salt, the acute reader will hot  sail to observe the similarity in  sound between "lick" and "liquor,"  the ancient .Americanese word for  strong drink���a significant circumstance, though it is not the business  of history to inquire what it signifies. At about 13 years of age  =Miss=Slupskysaid"that=the="voices'A  directed her to go to a certain  place where she would find a  hatchet���a small axe, sometimes  called a "sword"���suitable for  smashing joints. She did so, and,  finding the implement, tried its  edge on a cherry tree. Asked by  her.father if she knew who had  felled the tree she replied: "I. cai^  not tell a lie, father, you know I  cannot *tell a lie; I don't know a  thing about it." The reception accorded to that statement is believed  by Geezer ("The Ministry of Pain,"  iv., 327) to have had a stupendous  effect upon the course of history.  It gave the beautiful Maid of  Podunk a distaste for a sedentary  occupation and urged her forth to  the tented field. Prom that day  the demon Drink trembled in his  frail glass armor, and when in 1904  the lady was caught and burned as  a witch there was not in all Topeka  (says the Future Historian, in conclusion) enough wine to christen a  canal boat.    Great Men Are Smokers.  The king of England has never  attempted to hide the fact that he  enjoys his whiff. Once a certain  well-known society lady, a violent  anti-smoking nuisance, said to his  majesty: "Sir, as the leading gentleman in England, do you not  think that you ought not only to  refrain from smoking yourself, but  encourage others to give up smoking?" "Madam," frigidly and emphatically said the king, "many  years ago I commenced smoking. I  smoked ever since. I enjoy smoking.

LAY, Manager.  asked by an American beauty  whether he approved of smoking  answered: "Yes, indeed. There are"  two things which I trust I will  never lose���my honor and my tobacco pouch!" . ~'   '  When the khedive 6f-Egypt visited England some months aigo he  suffered, it will be remembered,  from some throat ^trouble which  kept him on his yacht for a few  days. After a careful examination sir Douglas Powell, the great  throat specialist, said: "I believe  your highness does * not- smoke in  any shape or form?" ?"You are  right, sir. I do not smoke. Well  indeed do 1 remember the first and  only time I was ever persuaded to  try a pipe. After the experiment I  reclined in.a most undignified' manner in a certain room in my palace,  making most unkindly gestures and  grimaces. You English people are,  I believe, great smokers, are you  not? Ah! well, you in England  never do anything iu a half-hearted  manner."  During some recent internal disturbances in Turkey.the sultan was  very much worried. ��� One day he  sorrowfully said to his leading  physician: "Ah; how awful are my  troubles, to be sure! Life would be  quite intolerable if it were not for  my cigarettes and my wives!"  The duke of York is, as every one  knows, a great cigarette smoker.  He once said to the young 'czar of  Russia: "A short time ago I had  an idea that cigarettes were bad for  me, so I determined to limit myself  to five a day. The first day I was  successful. - The second day I  smoked all five before lunch and  felt very miserable during the rest  of the day. - The third day il  smoked the. "five judiciously, but"  still; felt a, great wanting. The  fourth day I couldn't stand it any  longer and so smoked 15 cigarettes  to make up. for my self-denial  during the other days."  A short time ago the queen regent  of Spain was telling her son, the  young' king, how .very poor his  country was becoming and what  heed there would be of reform and  economy in many respects.  "Mother," said the young monarch,  "I have quite made up my mind  that we must all give up something  for the sake of my ��� country���some  luxury. I, for. my part, have determined to give up smoking."  Are you needing goods In our line?

Explained at New York.  There is somewhat of a falling; off  in that mining' excitement which  was characteristic of the Kootenays  not long ago.    Various reasons are  assigned, but the fall in the price of  silver and the smelter difficulties  are no doubt at the bottom of it.  Several properties have been closed  down of late, and others that used  to be worked vigorously are now  kept going with a small staff of  men..  The agitation for a refinery  is growing at a wonderful rate, and  once   this   point  is   satisfactorily  settled there will no doubt be a renewal    of   that    activity   which  demonstrated the great mineral' re-  sourcesofthecountry. The tendency  to exaggerate the richness of properties put on the market is on the  wane.     The   truth is   quite good  enough,* and when misrepresentation is made, at this stage-of the  country's  development;   it is   not  .productive   of   good  results.   The  prospectus of a local company���at  least a local property���is now in  circulation, all communications concerning which are to be addressed  to a firm of brokers in New York.  In the document alluded  to there  are reasons assigned that the stock  of this company will make handsome profits,   among these   being  that the property is located in one  of the best mining districts in the  world (the Nelson mining division),  and in support of this assertion it is  set forth that the Le Roi (Rossland)  stock   was placed on   the market  at two and a half   cents and is  =today^selling=air$40=per share;=that=  the War Eagle, another Rossland  property, is paying 12 per cent oh  a capital of $10,000,000;  that the  Center Star was sold for $2,000,000  before a pound of ore was shipped,  and other such startling statements.  It   is   further set forth that   the  company . has    no     indebtedness  whatever,   that   it has an actual  working    mine,   with    machinery  bought and paid for, on the ground.  Those who know the property say  that it might turn out all right but  they do not know of tons of ore  being taken put or of any reasonable   machinery   on   .the    ground  to .take it out.

Paul's Presbyterian church was  held last evening to consider a proposal to secure certain lots on Carbonate street and thereon erect a  more commodious edifice than that  in which divine service is at present  held. vFor some time past the seating capacity of Sfc. Paul's has been  overtaxed and it was a debatable  point as to whether the present  structure should be enlarged or a  new church erected. At a recent  meeting of the members it was suggested Jto purchase five lots in the  locality named and build. This  suggestion was approved last night  and preliminary arrangements made  for raising the necessary funds. Ifc  was- also decided to ask the sanction  of the Presbytery to sell the present  church and ��� grounds���this cou rse  being necessary as the property is  jit present in "the hands of trustees.  It transpired that the two- lots adjoining the church belong to the  Ladies' Aid, but that in drawing  out the deeds they were included in  the general. church ho'.dings. The  ladies seemed to think that these  lots''should be treated somewhat  distinct from the rest and that  when sold the proceeds should go to  their fund. They were informed  that before any sale could be made  it would be necessary to secure the  consent Of the Presbytery, after  which their claim, would be considered. No time will be} lost in  perfecting arrangements and starting the new building.  .   Professor Payne's Entertainment."
