Massachusscts, November  11.���A three-masted schooner lies in five  fathoms of water at Little Round shoal  and in all probability the members of the  crew are on board another schooner,  which at dark was going over the shoals  to the southward. The disaster was due  to the fierce gale that swept the coast  yesterday and the presumption is that  the vessel sprung a leak while at anchor  and being coal laden went down. The  masts were seen from Monomc-y life saving station this morning and Captain  Marshall Eldridge took his crew out for  a long pull to the wreck, but when he go;  within hailing distance tho objects had  disappeared. His opinion was that a  schooner seen near the wreck had sent  out a boat and taken off the men. Captain Eldridge. thought the wreck was of  a 400-ton vessel. Nothing had washed  to the surface which would give an idea  as to its name or port.  In Pugilistic Circles.  TRENTON, New Jersey, November 11.

BANGOR, Maine. November IL. ��� A  sensation was caused in St. Stephen,  New Brunswick, this weok by tho marriage of a man who has just boen .acquitted of a charge of murder, to the  woman whoso testimony saved him from  the gallows. The bride was the widow  of thc murdered man. Gei.rge H. Mc-  Laughlin was tried for the murder of  Harris McLaughlin, a farmer, and the  testimony of Lydia, widow of the victim, established an alibi for the prisoner,'securing his acquittal.

WASHINGTON, November 11.���It is  understood here that Chan Yen Tung  has been appointed to succeed Yuan Shi  Kai as governor of the Chinese province  of Shan Tung. Chan is a civil service  man and not a soldier. He is understood also to have been only reeentfy  appointed director of transportation, a  very important position in China.  Minister Wu has not been advised officially of the reported purpose of nil  government to relieve him at Washington. He has had no overtures from any  lesponsible educational institution in  America looking to his becoming a member of tho faculty.  The United States so far has not  named its representative on the committee ot bankers at Shanghai who are  to act as the collectors and distributors  of the international indemnity fund,  450,000,000 taels with interest. The delay  in tho cases of the [Jnited States government is caused by the absence of an  American banking concern in China,  Unless American financiers can become  interested in this subject to the extent  of opening a bank in the Orient, the  United Stater, probably will be obliged  to name a British fi%cal agent. A threat  to trade is said to be involved in such a  selection, in view of the fact that at  least three other of tlio nations party  'to the protocol are likely to make thi  samo choice, thereby placing an enormous and unusual power of regulating  the rates of e-xchange in the hands of  one "foreign concern.

McKinley, the' Forgiving  WASHINGTON, November ll.���ln  his new book, "On the Great Highway,"  which appeared today, ,'au.os Creclman,  after describing the death-bed of president McKiiiey, said that when he last  visited.the White House Mr. McKinley  said:  "My one ambition is to be known as  the president <-f thc whole people. I  have no other desire than tc win that  name After aU. no American can harm  his country without harming himself.  This government was created by the  people for themselves, and night or  day that thought is in my mind. We  all are together in this groat political  experiment. Some 1 f-.rd things have  been said of mc, but lhat thing is a necessary incident of popular government.  It must always be so. My plan is to forget the evil and only leine-mber tho  gcod. 1 never despair cf converting an  opponent into a supporter. The bitterest  critic I have can come md see me'and  lie will find a wsrm hand tc greet bin.  It is the only way for an American to  live."  "So he lived End so lie died," adds  the author. "Men of all parties' will remember him as McKinley the I'orgiv-  ing."   Naval Appropriations.  WASHINGTON, November ll.���The  main ieport of the naval board headed  by rear admiral Taylor, wliich prepared  plans for the new naval station at  Olongrpo, Philippine islands, shows  that the station will cost- this government $19,359,500. exclusive of- the de  fensivo works, signal stations, magazines, .hospital, eiiciiinpnient grounds,  and a native village under the control  of the-naval authorities, which it is pre--  posed, to provide for tlio workmen who  will bo employed regularly at the Olon-  gapo deckyard. The board recommends  that an additional fort be built besides the four recommended by admiral  Remey's board. The beard estimate  for equipping the station for eflicient  work of repair, and oui fit cf vessels,  pending general development, i-3 $12.-��  603,500. The report concludes with a  statement that much of the material  for the station must come from the  United States, though a good part of  it can be obtained at Hong Kong. .,  One Claim Dismissed  ��� LONDON, November 11.���Tho South  African compensation commission today  heard counsel in behalf of a fresh claimant, Martin, now of New York, who  demanded -C2000. The chairman remarked that it was clearly established  that Martin had not been deported by-  thc British military authorities and that  therefore his claim was not within the  scope of the commission. Major general  sir John Ardagh, the representative of  the government, announced that the government had settled with the Netherlands claimants for an aggregate sum of  �����'.37,500. .     Another Convict Captured  '   KANSAS 'CITY,   November. ll.r-An-  ot.her of the 2_   convicts  who   escaped  from the military prison -at Fort Leavenworth last week was wounded today  near Quenemo, feirty miles southwest of  the penitentiary, when Lawrence Lewis,  whito, aged 20, received a bullet in the  back while attempting to escape from  the city marshal."

Powdcrly, of the . immigration bureau,  has entered into an agreement with the  principal steamship and railroad lines  -of-Canada-foi���the-i cgiilu tion-of-immi-  gratlon to the United States thiough  Canada.  This agreement, which takes the  place of the former agreement, which  expired three days agu, Is icgarded as  much more favorable to the United  States than tho last one and will be  moro effective in keeping out the prohibited classes of immigrants. It provides that aliens arriving in Canada destined to the United States shall be inspected at Halifax, Nova Scotia, Quebec,  Point Levis, Vancouver, St. John, New  ���Brunswick, and Victoria, by United  States commissioners, who shall issue  certificates to such as aro entitled to  enter this country, and the holders of  these certificates siiall be entitled to  enter the United States without further  examination. The examinations at these  points shall be similar to thoso conducted at the ports of the United States.

The  Various Canadian steamship lines agree  to return from ports of tbe United  States such aliens as become laiclic  charges within one year after landing,  tho same as is now done by lines running to Uuite-o States ports direct. It  is a greed also that the immigration law..  and regulations of the United States  shali apply to the inspection of aliens  coming through Canada destined to the  United States.  MAYOR   FLETCHER WILL   MAKE  A  TRIP   TO   VICTORIA   IN  CITY'S INTEREST.  roof  ..di  Want Treaty Abrogated.  WASPIINGTON, Novemoer. IL���Representative Boutelle of Illinois today arranged for a future conference with tne  president on the subject of the abrogation of the treaty of 1817 with Great  Britain by which the building nf war  vessels on the great lakes is prohibited.  Mr. Boutelle says there are a dozen or  more shipyards on the great lakes and  that the,antiquated treaty of* 1817 prevents them from sharing the work of  building smaller vessels of the navy with  the seaboard shipyards.  The consideration of John Lynch for  the supplying of power for the city electric lighting by. the installation of a  Taylor air compressc.r was the chief  business at tho meeting of the city'  council last evening. Since submitting  his proposition Mr. Lynch has had interviews with a number of aldermen'  but it was evident from lhe manner-in  which his,preposition was received that  he was not successful in convincing  them that his scheme^ was desirable.  Alderman Selous said that in the conversation which he had with Mr. Lynch  the latter informed him tbat a plant  capable of developing all the power required for the city lighting could be  ii-stalled on Kcoteray river at a cost  not to exceed $75,000, but the speaker  added, that it would be a very great'  surprise to him if it cou'.d be demonstrated that the use of compressed air  would be cheaper tliat the use of water  direct. This view of the matter appeared  to be generally shared by tbe members  of the ccuncil. The merit of the Taylor  process 'was not asp ailed in any. way,  but it was contended that in cases in  which there was an abundance of water  the use of the-water to develop coin-  pressed air for the driving of electrical  machinery was a round abcut way of  going-at things, and while there may be  a savirg in one way it would also mean  the pu-chaso of engines to apply che  air to the electric light dynamos. Tho  Lynch communication was received and  filed  The report of the finance committee  was received and payment authorized  fer the several amounts therein contained. Among the other items was one  for $498 to the West Kootenay Power  & Lighr Company for the supplying of  power for a month and a portion of a  second month. There was some discussion upon this item as to the rate  upon which the charge lor rower wa.  based and thc mayor explained for the  benefit of tho members of the council  that the charge was made for 119 horse  power on the basis, of-$3 75 rcr moath  per horse power, the account covering  a period of one month and a tenth.  A petition was received fiom H. 13.  Croasdaile"and others asking for a sidewalk on Ward and Obsr-rvatory streets.  The council decided that the improvements asked for were necessary and G-  foot walks were ordered to be laid.  Two communications were received  from the representativo cf the Commer-  -cial���Union���Insurance���Company,���in  which ccnipiaints were made with the  fire department. The first complaint  was with respect to the accumulation  of rubbish in the rear of business pren ���  ises, and thi- second was that upon the  occasion of the fire alarm, when the de-  partmer-t was called to the residence  of A. H. Buchanan, there was but one  fireman in the hall. The members of  the council were of the opinion that  the statement contained in the letter  were incorrect and the clerk of the  council was instructed to notify the  writei to this effect. With respect to the  rubbish nuisance it was decided to have  the chief of the lire department make a  report upon thc condition of the rear -.f  the business premises so that such action as may be necessary can be taken.  E. C. Arthur, of tho cchr-.ol board of  trustees, had a communication before  the council asking for SI000 worth of  furniture for the new school to be purchased at once. It was decided to leave  this matter in the hands of. the mayor  with power to order such furniture as  he might consider necessary, the opinion of the council being that only such  furniture as might be necessary for  present requirements should be purchased. In the discussion on this communication alderman Selous stated  that the mayor had expressed his opinion of making a trip to Victoria with  a view to interviewing the government  on this and either matters. It is understood the mayor will ende;avor to persuade the government to iespond more  generously to the cost of school construction and furnishing, and also to  secure the site for the city's electric  light pewer plant on Kootenay river.  City engineer McCulloch." reportel  that the construction of a-G-foot. sidewalk on the south side of Mill street,  from Hendryx to Cedar street, would  cost, in thc neighborhood of ?200, and  the work was ordered to be done.  of  ith I  Steamship Man in Vancouver.  VANCOUVER, November 11.���[Special to The Tribune.]���Mills, Managing  director of tbe Union Steamship Company of New Zealand, which owns a hal_  interest in the Canadian-Australian  line, arrived tcday from England, fie  says tliat Australian and Canadian mail  subsidies expire in eighteen months. If  these are renewed, as they probably  will be his company will put on a lino  of larger and faster steamers to handle  the increasing business.   Mills has two  large steamers now building in the old  country for intercolonial trade.  Important Tariff Changes.  BERLIN, November 11.���Count Von  Buelow, the imperial chancellor, after  going this morning to Potsdam to confer with emperor William, called a cabinet meeting this afternoon. The North  German Gazette asserts that the object  of the meeting was to act upon the  changes made by the bunclesrath in the  tariff bill. It was learned by a represen-  attivo of the Associated Press from  sources inside the bundesratb that some  important changes havo been made.  Narrow Escape From Fire.  NEW YORK, November 11.���Fire in  the plant of the Planet mills in Brooklyn  destroyed $25,000 worth of property and  endangered many lives.

LONDON, November ll.��� The story  circulated in the United States by a  news agency today under an American  date, purporting to givo The pe-ac$ terms  Which tbe Boers are willing to accept  and alleging that they are to be embodied in a formal document for circulatio-i  among the powers, was seemingly stated  in an English provincial paper and is  denied - by the Boer delegates at The  Hague.          Mutiny Leader Captured.  TOPEKA, Kansas, November 11.���  Frank Thompson, the, nogro leader of  the mutiny at Fort Leavenworth prison,  was captured after a hard fight this evening near Council Grove.

NEW YORK, November 11.���Richmond Mayo Smith, a professor of political economy at Columbia university, was  killed tonight by falling from a window  in his study on the fourth floor of his  residence on West - Seventy-seventh  streot to the stone flagging in the rear.:  So far as the police have investigated  the case they conclude that the fall was  accidental.   PAID FOR OUT OF PROFITS  at Boston or. Saturday last, says: "If.  a" believed, Mr. Lodge'3 speech reveals  the mind of president Roosevelt, this  country will have nothing to complain  of. The isthmian business will be settled i e-jct year in a manner honorablo  and satisfactory to loth ee/iintries,  which means, we presume, that America will get her own way in the matter.  The Munroe doctrine is to be upheld by  a great navy, if needed This is in the  interests of peace. As tho Munroe doctrine ��oes not affect that pait of tbe  American continent" which belongs to  the British empire, the announcement  will causo no friction.' '  VEST MUCH ALIVE  Japanese and Chinese Industries.  TACOMA, November 11. ��� Oriental  advices received by tlio s-teamer Victoria state that the Japanese, naval de:  partment is preparing to establish a  steel plato factory at a cost of 6,000.000  yen. The riant will be in working order  in three years. Baron Mashido of Tokio  has obtaired from director Shen of the  Chinese lailway commis*. ion a concession for the erection of important  telephone lines which will connect the  largest cities throughout China.

THE HAGUE, November ll.���The administrative council of the arbitration  tribunal will meet November 20t.h to decide on the appeal of the Boers against  the ruling that the war in South Africa-  is not subject to the court's consideration. _  THE DOMINION OF CANADA  " Improvements at Granby Smelter.  The statement made by Mr. Mine1-,  president of the Granby Mining Smelting and Power Co., the other day that  the improvements at tho Granby smelter,  ~now~under~construction7"are-being-paid  for entirely out of the profits of the hast  and this year's operations is extremely  satisfactory. Tbis company has not been  very forward in bringing out a balance  sheet and report, but, on the contrary,  thc main subscribers to the shares are  the original subscribers when the various  companies now consolidated wore promoted, and if they are satisfied the public has not any serious reason of complaint. This company's operations have  for some reason or anouier always been  subjected to more than thc ordinary  criticism, but in looking back over its  history it is difficult to see where greater  economy of organization or efficiency of  workiUK could have been attained. The  ore in the Knob Hill and Iionsidos is  exceedingly low grade. It has always  been felt that its successful treatment  was in the nature of an experiment. But,  certainly, if it had not been successful  thero would have been something very  far out in the original calculations of its  nature and value. It has, apparently on  the contrary, proved fully as amenable  to treatment as was expected, and the  various economics originated in connection with the mine and smelter have  proved most efficient and valuable. According to Mr. Miner the cost of smelting  lias already been reduced from $1.90 a  ton and the increase in the plant,:.now  being paid for out of the profits, is expected not merely-to double the tonnage  but to still furthed decrease the cost of  treatment per ton. Under these circumstances there is fairly good authority  for the assertion that the enterprise is  a proved success. This of course, does  not touch the question of the capitalization of the company which, if it were  considered as anything but a mere conventional figure, is e-.xcessively high. It  must be years yet, at thc best, before  the company can hope t>i pay such dividends on a capital of $15,000,000, not to  mention $20,000,000, as would justify tha  buying and selling of the shares at par.  In the meantime a report and balance  sheet giving the average value per ton  of the ore treated (for thi.. is a fact  that has never been disclosed by the  management) will be awaited with great  interest and, if satisfactory, will finally  set at rest the fears of the most skeptical.  Monroe Doctrine Will Be Upheld.  LONDON, November , 11.--The Pall  .tail Gazette this afternoon, referring  to the speech made by senator Lodgo  Happenings in Brief.  LONDON, Ontario, November 11 ���  Seven thousand barrels of apples, valued  at $20,0,00 have been shippped to Winnipeg.from this district this fall.

MONTREAL, November .1.���F. ' G..  Gridlcsone, general manager of the Bristol & Avonmouth docks, addressed the  board*of trade today.

MONTREAL, November 11. ��� Lord  Strathcona left tonight for New York.  He sails for Liverpool on the Oceanic  Wednesday. Before leaving, referring  to the proposal-of "his-appointment-as~  governor- general, he said it would not  do. That official constituted the most  valuable tie between the colonies and the  mother country and nothing should be  done to weaken it. He would not say  anything about the fast Atlantic service  except to reiterate his opinion that the  country required it at once.  TORONTO, November 11. ��� David  Hawes, a colored railway porter, was  found guilty of criminal assault upon  Louisa Lebar, 17 years of age today,  and sentenced to ten years' imprisonment. Passing sentence, chief justice  Ferguson observed that hanging once  was the penalty for the offense and the  law was still on the statute books. In  view of the increasing prevalence of the  offense it was a question whether it  might not he again resorted /to. The  Lobar girl was en route from Winnipeg  to Oshawa. While waiting for a train  at the union station she struck up an acquaintance with Hawes, who enticed her  into the private car in which he was  employed and assaulted her.

Rathbone. enlisted--  under the name of Lou Root from Detroit.    Sergeant Skinner had read the."  story of the Jeffersonville case and tho  circumstances - connected with' the new  recruit aroused his suspicions.

A gold  watch bearing the name of "W. H. Ellis"  was found on Rathbone.   He refused to  say where'ho got it.

That low grade ores can he treated  at  a  profit has been  demonstrated at  Lead   City.

This has been'going on for 3ears, anil  the-great Homestake Min.ng ��� Company  with a capital of "121.000.000  has'paid  over $10,000,000 in  dividends'.'For tei  years after the discovery of ore in the  mines at Lead City, every pound of min-  mg'supplies had to bo hiiuJed' hundreds  of miles by ex and;riuile teams.'and fuel  and water were both, "procured at great  expense.   These mines  and  mills  have  always been  operated  by while labor.  At Mercur.

These are three instances  where  gold,'  ore that is lower grade" than any of th-.-  gold-copper   ores   of  British   Columbia!  is paying good dividends on large cap-'  italization.  If. such  results can be ob-!  tain9 in  another country, why not in'  l.ritish Columbia? It is only a (;uestien  of  time,   patience,  money,  und  brains.'

The' rope, the revolver, the "river and  the gas jet are traditionally' the mds;  "approved methods of severing one"1, mortal connections with neatness and dispatch. There are many other more'extraordinary fashions of -accomplishing  suicide, however, 'which* the amateur  c'rimirolt gist has .taken'little, note of.  Doubtless-a perverted sense of the grotesque leads some men 'to choose startling.ways 'of self-destruction. In other  -cases-it-is-siinply a-*-<_'uestion-ef-'cho-.sing-  the.implement nearest at hand.  Some twenty years ago a Boston man  determined to guillotine himself. "He  constructed an apparatus by .which' a  heavy axe blade was held, in place by a  can of water. In the'bottom of the can  was a' hole which allowed the1 wat-Vr to  "run-slowly out,''> and ''when a. certain  'amount'ha:d escaped the'axe;blade was  liberated. The suicideilaid his head on:  a: support so that the axe'would strike,  .him" in the>neck, and placed a dish of  ether-in such a position that ho would  -. inhale dt and hecome unconscious ��� before  being decapitated. ...*.*,  - A- case equally strange ;is that of the  man who placed the point of a rdagger  against his forehead and drove it into  his:skull by a blow from a mallet. The  ,b)ade, which was four inches long, was  driven in up to tho hilt, but the daggnr  being-removed hy a -friend who suddenly ��� appeared, the man actually re-  cpvered.    .  , Anothier man drove into his head two  stone chisels, one passing through the  head:from' left to right, the oth^rpn-  tering the certer of tM fondiead. Death  followed in aliout five hours.  ,.,'An Englisnian once 'committed suicide by, placing a dyhaniitecJirtridge in  ''his';mouth and lighting the fuse.  Drowning is a" mode of suicide fre-  rque"ntly resorted to both by men and  women/but the mode of- carrying * out-  the* .act does not always consist of sim-:  ply jumping or walking into the"' water.'  One case consisted; of plunging the. head  ���into u basin of scrip,:and in another instance a woman broke the ice on a pond,  thrust her head through the hole and so  perished.  ��� Although homicide is frequently committed by throttling -with the-hands,  suicide in this way is, of course^ exceedingly rare. - One woman, however,- who  had. previously ��� made: several attempts  to commit suicide, was found dead  crouched in her bed with both hands  compressing the throat; death had undoubtedly ensued from throttling.

One Postoffice in Two Countries  The most curious postoffice in America  is tho one which stands in Beebe Plain,  . a town half in Vermont and half in tbe  province of Quebec, Canada.. Tlie old  postoffice was built about seventy-five  years ago exactly on the boundary line  between thc United States and Canada,  so that it stands in two countries and  series in tlie postal service of two nations. The cellar of tbe building connects  tho two countries, and some years ago,  when the postoffice was a general store,  whiskey was known to be sold in one  country and delivered in another without  ever having gone out from under the  roof of the old structure. This combination postofiico is now being iun by parent and child, the father- being postmaster for Quebec and the daughter  postmistress for Vermont. Standing in  front of this strange' postoffice is a large  post which marks the boundary line, and  it is said that one time a man who wanted to get a roadway to his promises  moved this post, and many thousands oi  dollars ar.d no little time was spent to  establish the exact lino again.  Until a short time ago a tuvy peculiar  postaffice was used in Argyllshire, England.   It was situated in the lonely hills  ��� between Drimnin and Barr, three miles  from any habitation, and consisted of  a simple slit in a rock, closed up by a  nicely fitting stone. When any letters  arrived at Drimnin for the district of  Barr they were conveyed to the rock by  the first shepherd or crofter going so  far. Having been dropped in and tho  slit rcclcsed. they were left until a shepherd or crofter from the other side hap-  _ pen.ed_to__come along, when they j\vere_  taken up and ..elivered at thc-ir clue "destination.    No letter-was ever known to  ]jp lost at this primative postoffic?.  At Buira, Shetland, an old tin can'ster,  made water-tight with newspapers aud  pitch, was once picked up on the shore.  Jt contained ten letters, with the correct etish for postage. With these was  also a letter for the finder, urgently requesting the posting of the accompanying missives, as. they were important  business communications. After the  letteis had .been carefully dried they  were at once posted to their destinations,  wliich thoy reached without further adventure. ��� _��� .  Dors Trained to Lead the Blind.  Among the many careers that a dog  who has to work for his living may follow is that. of leading the blind. Of  course, the work is one that requires,  some training, and there are, in fact, a  -number of what may be called preparatory schools, for .this sort of business.  " The most reliable guides aro the product of the instruction ot a man whose  kennels are in a little village in England. As the dog whicli is destined to.  act in the place of a pair of eyes has no  easy task before it, only the most intelligent puppies are chosen to be trained  -for the pvi pose. Having selected thelU-  tl eanimal whose life work it will b*. to  lead the blind, tbe breeder leaves it with  its mother until it is at least four  months old. Its playful babyhood at an  end, the puppy begins to go to school,  ���taking, as a first step, lessons in-the  ���art of walking in a straight line and at  a steady pace. The school-room to begin  .-with is the kennel yard, later it i3 a  country lane, and by-and-by the village  st.l*6Gt  -.It-.takes sortie time for a lively young  animal to learn that sudden dashes here  and there must not be indulged in while  some one bas hold of a chain attached  to its collar. But. after two months'  constant daily practice tbe lonson is driven home. By making excursions in all  directions, leaving the-dog to do all the  piloting home, the blind expert tests and  develops its sense of locality. He furthermore* accustoms it to traffic, and by  kindly insistence impresses on it the  necessity for not only withdrawing itself  from dai ger but its charge as well.  After four or fivo months' traini.i;;  tho dog is ready to lead the blind. It is  then perhaps some nine months old, and  Is kept in constant practice until a purchaser is found.. The breeder who has  J_ad the aog trainer does not advertise,  but ho is known to tho officials of the  various charitable organizations which  "assist the blind. When a blind man is  anxious to get about and has no child  who can lead him, a dog is ordered from  the breeder, who iccoives between ?10  and $15 for each animal supplied. Then  a clever little doggie makes a long journey by rail, and after it has got to know  its new master settles down without  complaint to a life of quiet, faithful  self-sacrifice   The Belgian Prisons. =  'A Belgian.when convicted of a capital crime is not shocked to deatli or  hanged on tlie gallows. Indeed, the  death penalty is not exacted at all ii  Belgium, tho criminal being sent to  prison for life instead. This punishment  is, however, the- refinement of barbar7  ism. Few criminals can endure it longer  than three years, or the actual torture  of this wretched condition-the following  details give but the most meagre idea.  The condemned man is placed not in  a cell but a dungeon. This' is not only  dark and dirty and bare of every.vestige  of'comfort, but it is so s.epaiated from  the other part of tho prison' that no  sounds penetrate its formidable isolation From the moment the malefactor  enters it he never hears the sound of  human voice, never sees the ���f.ight of a  human face again.  His food is pushed thTough a sliding  panel in the door of his cell. Attentions  of other sorts-he has none. The authorities havo striven to extend the .limit  of tne prisoner's life by varying the  food as mitch as possible, but in vain.  Those vho aro _nodr.rs.l-*; J y or' lightly  -nourished-gradually_jvaste^aAyay,_whibi_  those who arc generously fed go mad  and die raving maniacs. Until recently  little Belgium had two rublic executioners, although one was sufficient for  her big neighbor France. The king of  the Belgians-recently ordered tbe re tiro-  -nout or. a pension of ?.r,0 of one of his  execution-, rs��� "the executor of high  works," as ho is termed. The other executioner still holds his place at Brussels. The- duties of public executioner  are singular, but r_ot - nr duo js.

The case was tried by justice  Walkem, who gave judgment for the  defendant under section 53 of the Mineral Act, which sets out. that the free  miner should not be made to" suffer  through any act of omission or comis-  sion on the part of any representative of  the government. The trouble with the  Lawr location was that a certificate of  work had been secured with respect to  the Rebecca for work done upon a claini  which did net adjoin, the evidence of the  plaintiff being that the mining recorder  of the time had informed him such work  could be made count upon the Rebecca.  Tho full court uphold the decision of  justice Walkem I>ut rested it upon a different section of the act, section 28.  which sets ont that tbo issuance of a  certificate of work cured any defect with  respect to the due performance of the  same.

The main line of the Canadian Pacific now makes a long northern detour,  which will be cut off if the contemplated  link is constructed. The attractions of  Eanff, the great glacier, and other features on the presont main line will insure its popularity for tourist travel, but  the shorter and more level route through  the Crow's Nest Pass will be thc moro  advantageous for freight and commercial  passenger business."
