Sir Robert  Hart's scheme of internal taxation  would occupy 50 years.  A conflict is said to be imminent  between the French and Chinese  troops afc Hwai Lu. Li Hung Chang  has ordered the Chinese government  to withdraw from the province of  Chi Li, and the general reported  that he would withdraw after he  'had swept the foreigners out.  Thereupon general Bailloud, the  French commander, leffc Pekin today with permission to tight if his  force should be attacked. This  'permission is almost equivalent to  positive orders. The French have  1500 men at Hwai Lu and the  Chinese are reported to number  25,000. Victory would give the  French command of the inain road  to the province of Shan Si by a  better route to Fo Ping.-which the  Germans have secured. The French  intend to construct" a railway to  Kil Can as-the first step in a trans-  Mongolian line to lake Baikal.  A remarkable" testimony was  borne to the excellence of American  municipal government in Pekin today, when many Chinese assembled  in the American quarter and presented a petition begging the Americans to remain in Pekin.  only. The enemy's rear guard was  driven in by a combined movement  on both flanks. Their convoy was  then sighted at Lenwoofontein.  The Greys, New Zealanders and  bushmen pushed on. The enemy  attempted to take up a position,  but the Greys and other troops rode  down all opposition and gave them  no chance. The convoy was ridden  into and the enemy's retirement  became a rout. The pursuit was  continued until the horses were  exhausted.   ,S5Se*-  cer  Mi'  of  county,  years  ISrBi&s  Disinterring American Dead.

The Russians  ' guarded the disinterred bodies all  night and rendered all the Russian  military honors to the dead.  General -Gnaffee wrote to M. De  -Giers an expression of his feelings  apd of   the feelings of  the officers  -and men of their command. - M. De  ;.Giers, referring to the incident, said:  "Ifc was only natural.

It is recalled that in  the case of an American marine  who had done duty beside a Russian, thei latter, with the tears  streaming down his face, leaped  into the grave .and arranged the  earth as a rest for the head. Those  who were present said it was a  most affecting scene.  ....7.7.. Affairs in India.

He said the currency policy!-had  gained strength and stability and  that the ravens had ceased to croak  concerning it.. He defended the  - military estimates, saying that  while he would gladly spend the  revenues on economic measures, an  increase in the army was required  to make India safe, which was not  the case at the present.time. -."While  the whole world was busy with  military reform, lord Curzon concluded, India could not stand still.  Kitchener's Reports.  London, March 27.���A dispatch  from lord Kitchener to the war  office dated Pretoria, March 27, says:  Our casualties in general Babing-  ton's action were two killed and  seven wounded. The Boers leffc 22  dead and 30 wounded. As their  pursuit was rapid, many more Boer  casualties are likely.

She  inspects the daily reports and compels parents who have children of  school age to send them regularly.  "The two men who,had held the  position before," said Mrs. Coe,  "had not given the best of satisfaction, so I made an application and  got it. - State superintendent of  schools Charles R. Skinner sent me  a copy of the Consolidated School  Law and a sharp letter telling me  that he would see that I was removed if I did not perform my  duties properly.  "I thank him for the warning. I  take that school law around- with  me. When I lind that a child is  kept from school I go to the parents  and read the law to them, together,  so they can't blame each other. I  have had one troublesome boy. Although I hated to do it, I had to  take him to the Truant School at  Watertown. He is 13 years old.  He wouldn't go to school, and after  I tried all sorts of ways I had to  arrest him. I could control him on  board the train, but I was nervous  about holding him while we changed  cars at. Richland, so T wrote this  note and gave it to the conductor  when he took our tickets : ' This  boy with me is under my care.

Sure enough when we- goc out at  Richland the boy tried to run away,  but the conductor grabbed him and  then I got hold of his arm and  marched him to the "Watertojvn  train.

England, Japan and the United States  Are Nov on Record as Formally  Protesting.  Washington,    March   27.---The  British government has protested  against China's making a convention with any power touching territorial or financial affairs until tbe  .present troubles in- that country  are   concluded.   The   facfc   of  the  British protest was made known  here for the first  time today by a  dispatch from one of the foreign  offices of Europe.   It says that the  protest was made through sir Ernest  Satow,   the   British   minister    at  Pekin.    It does not state when the  representations    were   made,   but  from tne fact that the dispatch was  received in Washington today, it is  taken  that   the   protest' occurred  within  the last day or two.   Although the Russian  agreement is  not specifically referred^ to,   it is  said to be clear that the British  action is directed against the Russian agreement.   The language appears to be similar to that used by  secretary  Hay  in   the   American  protest. - .  -The effect of the British action is  to place the United States, Japan  and Great Britain in formal opposition to the signing of a convention  by China wifch any power pending  the settlement of the Chinese  troubles. The course of Great  Britain is the more significant from  "the fact that that government and  Germany have a written alliance  relating ' to Chinese affairs. The'  occurrence* of. these "protests,  probably explain _ why - the Man-i  'ch'urian" "agreement"' hsis-<-nofe been  signed. - There was no definite information received here today at  the state departmentjor at uny of  the,foreign embassies as to whether'  the agreement had been signed or  rejected. There was some kind of  a stir in diplomatic quarters over'  the report coming from official  sources that the United States was,  considering the advisability of addressing" Russia directly on the'  subject.   -  Heretofore the American ob-|  jections to the Manchurian agree-i  ment had been addressed to China.  Copies were furnished the Russian,  authorities, though the protest in  form has been made to China and  not ' to Russia. Several of the  foreign representatives advised  their governments that this step  was contemplated by the United  States, but there is no official^in^  of a circular, which has been issued  by the minister of the interior.  The ministerial council has been  called for Friday at Tzarksoe, Selo.  The examination of the 1150  political prisoners is How being eon-  ducted in secret by the police.  Thirty-six ^prisoners, who were  arrested as leaders of the student  movement before the last riots, will  probably be released from custody  tomorrow and will be excluded  from the university for different  periods. -   ' -   J -  It is reported from trustworthy  sources that the 'government has  decided to make unofficial concessions to the students and accordingly the military regulations against  student agitators are-' therefore  stayed for the present, though there  will be no public announcement to  this effect for some time. Thepris-.  oners will not be drafted into - the  army. Thisis one of the results of  the ministerial meeting.  . Mine Under ~the_-Palace. -  London, March -27.���A dispatch  to the Exchange ;Telegraph Com-;  pany from " Paris ��� states, on the  highest authority, that a'mine has  been discovered beneath the palace  of emperor Nicholas at Tzcarskoe-  Selo, 17 miles south of St. Petersburg. Several notabilities, the dispatch further states, are implicated  in the plot ' against. his majesty.  The Russian press was not permitted to mention the affair.

Washington, March 27.���The  Spanish war claims commission, of  which former senator William  Chandler of New Hampshire is  president, has received from* the;  state department a full list of thej  claims againstfSpain-grovving out of  the insurrection '������: in ' Cuba which  were filed in the department up to  .the 15th of the present; month.  These claims are all those of American citizens, for under'the treaty of  Paris the governments of the United  States'and Spain undertook to adjust the claims of their o^iieitizens.  The grand total of these claims is  about $30,000,000 and included in  the list are five claims in excess of  a million dollars.

FLOODS IN NEVWORK STATE  ���:     . i  - Rivers and Streams -Raging, ��� *  New   York,   March 27.��� From:  many parts of the state -came news  today -of 'floods.    "The waters of  rivers and the small tributaries are  reported as overflowing their banks,;  causing     widespread    inundations  which threaten   to destroy much  property, if not loss of life,- before  they begin to subside. . Up to midnight tonight the only accident in  which any one was injured which  was reported during the ��� day and,  evening was that due to the gashing out of a culvert; near Norwich:  and the ditching of a Delaware &  Lackawanna train. ' In J;he accident  thre1e^people==were���slightly^hurt.  The rush of water which is swelling  the streams is due to heavy rains  and the consequent melting, of the  snow, which has lain for months  deeper than usual in the central,  northern and western portions of  the state.  The'"��� Mohawk river, swollen by-  torrents of water flowing from the  snow-covered Adirondacks,is higher  than at any time in almost forty  years, and much fear was expressed  at; Utica during the'day that the  rising waters would. interfere with  railway traffic before- tomorrow,  but tonight's reports show, that the  high point was reached and the  waters were receding., The swirling waters of the Mohawk carried  the ice out of the river .at Schenectady and the pressure thus relieved  has saved Schenectady, slo far from  serious damage. The^ water has  risen so high, however, .that Little  Falls reports that New York Central railroad trains arepjeing run  over the West Shore road; between  Frankfort and Utica. \  ���The Genesee valley is submerged  in many places. The Genesee and  its tributaries have not been so  high for years.        :    - '"-.*  Ravages of the Plague.  , London, March 2S.���The Calcutta  report of the Daily Mail says: Bight  thousand people died of the plague  last week in Bengal alone, including  Calcutta.

Mr. Muloek,  postmaster-general of Canada, gave  evidence yesterday before the interdepartmental cable committee. The  proceedings were private, but ifc is  understood Mr. Muloek favored the  expansion of a state-owned cable  system by the construction of a  government cable between Canada  and Great Britain, also the acquisition of a line from Australia via  Singapore aud Hong Kong. The  latter extension would be of tlie,  greatest possible advantage to Canada, as thereby Canada would, via  a Pacific cable, be in direct communication with China and Japan,  Englishmen Buying Horses.

The  highest record was Juno 13, 1898,  when 1108 head arrived. A large  number of the horses now being  purchased in this market are for the  English army.

. The Miner had a yellow streak
yesterday. It was almost as bright
as that developed by our esteemed
friend, the. genial old gent, in his
palmiest days.
Should it happen that the rival
railway companies have not patched
. up their difficulties, the Nelson
Miner will never forgive its own
haste in tipping its hand before the
victor was announced.
British Columbia is about the
only province in the Dominion that
did not lose men through the
preference of time-expired volun-
teers- for some portion of South
Africa. All British Columbia's men
have elected to return to their own
province. ■ ■   "
; The Nelson Miner says the Crow's
Nest railway controversy is. now
-all over but the shouting. This
emboldens Nelson's eminent and
fearless journal to observe that
such preference as  it had for the
•parties to the dispute was all in
favor of the. winner.
The Midway Advance says Jim
Hill and Messrs. Mackenzie and
Mann have taken the troublesome
Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern railway problem off the Dunsmuir
government's hands. They will
build the road and the government's
obligations will be , restricted to
lending assistance.
It may inconvenience the owners
of the. Nelson opera house to bring
their premises within the requirements necessary for public safety,
but sthis.. inconvenience is only
secondary to that which would be
experienced by patrons of the house
should they attempt to hurriedly
thread the intricacies of its exits in
case of fire.
The action of the license commissioners, in refusing the Church
application for a hotel license at
Erie, has stirred up quite a tempest in that peaceful little hamlet.
"In fact the dissidents of the pjace
seem, to have got together and
framed a protest which has been
forwarded to Nelson with fche signature of Alex Gorgettee attached.
There is just one section' of the
communication that deserves attention. It is that dealing with the
hotel accommodation at Erie. If
the only, hotel in the place is so
noisy that people cannot sleep, and
if the accommodation generally is
so poor that it militates against
the prosperity of the place, the
license commissioners should be
made aware of the fact. It is just
as important that the accommodation afforded by persons seeking renewal of licenses should be inquired
into, as ifc is that the premises and
accommodations for which new
licenses are sought should be inquired into. This is a matter
which might receive the attention
of the chief license inspector, so
that reports would, go before the
commissioners as to licensed premises upon which some reliance
might be placed.
The men   who are boosting for
Jim Hill's East Kootenay railway
scheme now plead that the Crow's
Nest   Southern    railway    charter
should   be   granted,   because    the
Crow's Nest   Pass   Coal Company
has   conceded   to    the    Canadian
Pacific Railway Company the right
to work some 3800 odd acres of coal
lands which the railway company
owns in the   coal   belt.   Whether
any such concession has been made
is as yet very much in doubt, but
assuming that ifc has, it is a matter
which chiefly concerns the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company and not
the   people   of   British   Columbia.
When    the    federal    government
settled the terms upon which 'the
Crow's Nest Pass railway should be
built, there was reserved for the
Canadian Pacific Railway Company
some 3800 odd acres of coal lands;
and there was also reserved for the"
benefit   of the   people of Canada
some   50,000   acres   of coal lands,
such lands to be selected so that
the people's reserve would comprise
as good coal lands as any held by
the coal company.   It therefore becomes obvious that the people have
greater    interests    in   the    East
Kootenay coal .question . than are
covered by any" concession to the
Canadian Pacific Railway Company
to work the few acres which   ft
possesses.    First of all the people
are interested in knowing whether
these   50,000   acres   of coal   lands
so reserved have been selected; and
if selected, whether they comprise
as good coal measures as any held
by the Crow's Nest Pass Coal .Company.   It may, be that the necessary selection has   not   yet   been
made; that, there are difficulties in
making such selection, or that the
coal company has been so active in
prospecting the coal fields that it
charges British ..Columbia smelters
$4 75 per ton for coke running as
high as 15 and 18 per cent ash.
Against this Thomas Rogers, Brown
& Co., Monadnock building, Chicago,
quote first-class coke, low in sulphur and ash (less than 12 per cent
ash) for $2 per net ton of 2000
pounds, f. o. b. cars at ovens. That
this United States figure is nearer
what the price should be is borne
out by a former manager of the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company,
who has stated that in the United
States he has sold coke in the cars
as low as $1 per ton. All things
considered, perhaps Mr. Jaffray may
explain why his company extorts
$4.75 per ton from British Columbia smelters for their coke supply,
or why, when promising reductions,
he cannot go stronger than 25-cents
per ton. He cannot plead excessive
freight rates, for the supplies required in the production of coke are
practically nil, the chief cost being
labor. There is a chance for the
governments of British Columbia
and of the Dominion to show some
consideration for the miners and
smelters of this province. Make
the granting of the desired railway
concession conditional upon more
favorable-fuel rates for British Columbia smelters.
looks like a shut out for the government's reserve selection. These
are matters which very properly
may be inquired into when the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company is
seeking fresh concessions in the
form of a railway charter, and no
such further concessions should be
given until the people of Canada
get what is coming to them out of
the coal areas.
There is ho reason to apprehend
that, in return for the .Crow's Nest
Southern    railway    charter,    the
Crow's Nest   Pass  Coal Company
would not be both willing and able
to sell coal to the Trail smelter at
25 cents less per ton than ifc charges
at present.    In fact it is just possible that even greater   reductions
could be made in the prices of both
coal and   coke before the British
Columbia smelters would be placed
upon the same basis with respect to
their fuel   supply from   the East
Kootenay coal fields as the smelters
south of the international boundary line.   When  so much is heard
about the patriotism of the Toronto
gentlemen who compose the coal
company, it is not amiss to note the
prices which they charge the Brit
ish Columbia smelters for coal and
coke, and compare them with prices
at which coal and coke are supplied
to United States smelters by less
patriotic     coal     companies.     The
Crow's Nest Pass   Coal  Company,
. Because it is rumored that the
Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company
has agreed to allow fche Canadian
Pacific company to work some 3800
acres-of railway company coal lands
the Nelson Miner says no attention
should be paid to those 50,000 acres
of coal lands whicli the federal government is to select from the coal
fields of East Kootenay and hold
for the general good of the whole
people.' The Miner's interest in
any question begins and ends with
the interest of private corporations,
especially .with the corporations
which pay.
The Tribune may lose the .fight
which ifc made in the hope of preserving the coal supply of East
Kootenay, but it will -have the
satisfaction of knowing that its
course ' was consistent. In this
respect it differs from the Miner:
Ifc never wabbled, all round the
question in its editorial columns,
and then tried to square itself with
the Canadian Pacific Railway Company by publishing fake communications signed by such newspaper
veterans as " Canadian " or " True
Blue,"       •_
The Tribune is pleased to announce that mayor Fletcher will
take immediate action in the matter
of the dangerous fire trap which
does duty in Nelson for- an opera
house. The report of fire chief
Lillie, in condemning the building,
served to bring matters to a head,
and will doubtless result' in- Nelson
securing a place of entertainment,
fighting chance " for their lives in
case of fire.
The Tribune is: in receipt of a''
communication from a local social-;
ist upon the subject of "Spcialibin
as Related to Christianity," in
which the writer undertakes to
demonstrate that no such relationship exists.' The communication,
howev'erris unsigned, an evidence
of modesty quite unexpected in a
wmteiv~who -seeks to correct- the
mistakes'Christ made in his missionary work on earth, but nevertheless fatal to its chance of publication. '*''   'Ax ■      ■'■'■■

By   his presence   of   mind conductor Harris Purple saved from  ( death or severe  injury   300   passengers on   the Delaware,  Lackawanna , and Western  train which  was wrecked recently at Portland,  */ Pennsylvania.      Engineer   Lyman  - Chase had died in his cab with the  throttle wide open and the train  rushing   on at 75  miles an- hour.  ���TThis train is one of the fastest on  the road, and because of the unusual  heavy travel was some minutes late.  The engineer was endeavoring to  make up.the. lost time. '  When he  passed.Delaware Water Gap he was  known to be alive, and was there  instructed to take the east siding of  ��� the switch at Portland, about 20  , miles ahead.   -Engineer ���Chase was  known as one of the safest' men on  the road and never had an accident  in his 12 years of   service.     Conductor Chase, knowing this, gave  himself no   alarm   regarding the  train.     He   noticed several times  that the train -was going at an unusual rate of speed around curves  and across bridges, but attributed  this to the anxiety of the engineer  to make up lost time.  - As the train approached Portland  conductor Purple knew that speed  ��� should be slackened to make the  siding.1   As it did not, he "signaled  the engineer. Receiving no response  ' he 'again   signaled" the    engineer..  . Again   no  blast   of   the    whistle.  . Fearing ."so'm^bingL^\yasJv^ongJti.e.,  rushed to the rear car to the valve  of the safety brake.   Just then he.  heard the flying locomotive jump:  the track at the ��� Portland switch..  Instantly conductor ��� Purple opened  the   valve, setting the air brakes  along the'entire train.    Even with',  this powerful check, the momentum *  was   so   great that the. train ran  more- than 500 yards.   The sudden  application of the air brakes threw  the   passengers    in    heaps.     The;  screams of women and children who1  were   more  frightened jbhan hurt;  rose in a chorus, but before any  explanation could be   offered thei  train had come to a standstill. jCon-ji  ductor Purple ran to the' locomotive  to   see   what had  happened  and  found} .engineer Chase in his cab,  dead 'from heart' disease.   Fireman  Kirshiand   was   thrown from   the  cab into a mud bank and escaped  serious   injury...'. He   told. Purple  that   just   before he was thrown  from the engine he saw Chase sitting in his cab with his hand on  the throttle.   He shouted to him as  the engine jumped the track, but  received no answer.   He is satisfied  that the engineer was  dead before  the switch was passed.   The engine .  hauling the train was of the Mogul;  class and the fireman could not see  the engineer unless he climbed out  of his own cab to look for him. One  of the employees  pf the road, in  speaking   of   conductor     Purple's  presence of mind in applying the  air brakes, said:   "If he had not  pulled that valve there would have  been a wreck with greater loss .of  life than in any disaster in the history of the road.   The air brakes  saved   the cars from   telescoping.  It steadied the train sufficiently to  prevent its destruction.   The pas-  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on doposits.

It  occurred in the criminal court where  a young man named Giacomo Simeoli was being tried 1or murder, the  charge being   that   he had killed  Antonio Negrini, one of his^neighbors, in a dispute oyer cards.   The  court room was crowded with Ne-  grini's friends,' and their scowls and  muttered threats,   while Simeoli's  lawyer was pleading for him showed  how intense was their hatred of  the accused.   At   noon   the court  adjourned and, guarded oh all sides  by policemen, Simeoli stepped-from  the dock with the intention of returning to his cell.   Hardly, however, had he  taken a step before  a crowd closed around him and he  found his way blocked by angry  men, who shook their fists at him,  and by women' who spat in his face:  Back the policemen   thrust the  infuriated mob, but in spite of them"  a lad broke   through   their ranks  and, reaching Simeoli,   plunged a  dagger into his heart. "Simeoli fell  at once and a hasty examination  showed that he could not recover.  The murderer fled, but the pursuers  were hot on,his track and speedily,  captured him.   -Being brought back  to tliffcourt room, in which he had  slain   a   defenceless- man   in    the  presence of a judge, a horrified jury  and many other- spectators, he was  questioned as  to his  motive.   He  said calmly that the reason why he  had   killed-^ Simeoli . was    because  Simeoli had. killed his brother and  he thought that it was his duty, to  avenge hini.    " lam 16 years old,"  he told the judge, "and my name is  Giovanni   Negrini."   It is said that  steps will be immediately taken to  prevent persons in future from carrying   concealed, weapons   into   a  court   room   during   the   trial   of  criminal cases.

Russell Sage, still active in Wall  street's strenuous life at the age of  85, thinks Andrew Carnegie, nearly  a score of years younger, retired  from business too- soon. While  threading his way through the  crowded down-town' streets this'  afternoon to one of the numerous  financial meetings he attends  daily, "Uncle*: Russell; talked of  Carnegie and his, latest philanthropic action. "Mr.. Carnegie," he  said,- "is very generous indeed. I.  commend him for his generosity;  we all do." "But," and the great  Wall-street magnate winked slyly,  "he might have made his charities  a little less ostentatious. I believe  in "charity, you know, but���well, I  .think it ��� ought to be done very  quietly. . '.'  "I know Mr. Carnegie. I've _ met  him a number of times. He's a nice  man���a very nice .man. But, he's  not a great man. He made a big  fortune. ,Yes; he got in a fortunate business. He couldn't help  making money. The growth and  development of the country insured  that.

IRVINQ & CO:  CITY LOCAL NEWS  A certificate of improvement was  yesterday granted to Larry  Gallagher for work on the Golden  Standard mineral claim.  r The work of laying the, sidewalk  on the west side of Stanley street  at the Hudson's Bay store was  started ' yesterday. It is a great  improvement to the thoroughfare.  The meeting of firemen called for  last night did not materialize.  There was not as large an attendance as was i desired for the business on hand and a postponement  was agreed.to.  His numerous friends in Nelson  will regret .'��� to learn that Herb  Reeves is lying dangerously low in  the New Denver hospital. He was  until recently connected with the  freight department of the C. P. R.  . Frank McKay was yesterday arrested by chief Jarvis for drunkenness. McKay had just been liber-  ateid from the provincial jail where  he had been under, detention for  four months. He is a hard  character. ���  There was a death at the general  hospital last night. It was that of  J. Dennison, an old-timer, and his  last check was sent in to the credit  of appendicitis. His brother arrived from Revelstoke just an hour  after the sufferer breathed his last.  Chief Lillie is away in Spokane,  his mission being to secure a team  of suitable horses for the fire department. Horses heavy and active  enough for this work are hard to  get, and when secured are often so  hard to train that they have to be  rejected.  Thomas 0. Collins, historian, poet  and mineralogist, has just completed some additional work on-the  Free Coinage and Lizzie C. properties, having opened the veins at  new places and exposed good looking ore. On the Delia S., adjoining  the Lizzie C, a shaft has been sunk  15 feet, exposing a 3-foot ledge of  good-looking gold quartz. Assays  of the rock are now being made.  The Assizes.  The . summer assizes will be  opened in Nelson on May '7th,' and  indications are that the criminal  calendar ' will be exceptionally  heavy. There are two murder  cases to be tried���one from Grand  Forks and one from. Golden.c The  civil business, which is also heavy,  will be opened on May 14th. The  city of Nelson does not contribute  any- serious criminal cases to the  docket.   .  ���  i  The City Debentures.  No times has been lost by A.Ames & Co. of Toronto, the purchasers^ the city debentures, in  the matter of taking up the issue.  They have instructed Messrs. Taylor  & Hannington to look into the  validity of the by-law authorizing  the raising of the loan, and as soon  as this is done, the money will be  forthcoming. Yesterday the legal  firm in question was making the  necessary investigation.  LOCAL AMATEUR HYPNOTISM  And Its Effects.  Since professor Payne has come  to town there appears to be a decided movement in the direction of  hypnotism.   The professor declares  that there is no particular knack in  acquiring the art���iu fact, that any  one can become a hypnotist provided   his,,; subject  is willing and  obliging.    Hence there are numerous amateurs operating with more  or less success.   Among the number is a well known officer of one'of  the lake steamers.   It being a case  of mind over matter, this official is  convinced���' he has the former and  the latter is at all times available.  The other day, during a slack half-  hour, on board, he   undertook   to  hypnotize-seVeral members of the  crew. His subjects were apparently  very, easy 'to   tieat;   and   in the  course of a few minutes had them  completely^ under   control  (as   he  thought)   and   doing   all   sorts of  funny things; Thoso who witnessed  the performance Avere aware that a  joke was being perpetrated, which  made the-entertainment the more  enjoyable:   The   operator had ��� his  subjects shrieking wildly under the  impression  that  they were seated  on redhot plates of iron and laughing uproariously when the suggestion so to do was made.   Finally he  put his  men to sleep, and during  their   feigned   sleep  proceeded to  explain    how   easy   it  would   be  to    bring   them     to.     The   captain    expressed    his"   admiration  of thewhole proceedings, and hinted  that the   scene might be brought  to a close, as there was some' work  to be done aboard.   This work was  in the hypnotist's department and  those to wh'dse lot the work falls  were among ithe sleeping ones. But,  horror!.-The amateur was unable  to arouse his men.    They feigned  sleep so well.that they frightened  him for a time, but he ultimately  lost his temper on realizing that if  theyi could', not be brought to in  time he would have to engage, others  to do their/vyork.,   As a matter of  fact he had to adopt this course,  and   nob until "all the work  was  done did' they   awake.    It' is   re-,  ported thatjihe official, in. question  will not again ,try his ^prowess on  his men.w.hilp there, is work .tp be  E3  ITIEIZRS   <fe  JsraLsoir  KASLO  s-^iriDoasr  STOVES!

Professor Payne's hypnotic sub-,  ject was on view in the store window bf Hunter & Co; all day yesterday   and   attracted    no   small  amount of-attention.���He-is a-man^  named7 O.'Callaghan,   and   as   the:  name will suggest he is no Italian.*  Persons   troubled   with    insomnia  envied the subject his peaceful and  prolonged slumber.   The .professor;  says he is treating O'Callaghan ,for;  stammering, not for sleeplessness as  some might suppose.  Liquor Licenses.
