MONEY FOE  SCHOOL,  HOSPITAL,  FIRE ALARM AND ELECTRIC  ' LIGHTING PLANT.  The introduction of the several loan  by-laws was the chief business transacted at the meeting of the city council  last evening. Objection was taken by  aldermen Irving and Madden to the  course of the present council submitting  by-laws for money when its time was  so short that it would not be in office  long enough to issue the debentures  vhich might be authorized, to say nothing of expending the money, but they  were two against five and the program  was carried out as arranged. In addition to the other loan by-laws for  school, lire alarm and isolation hospital purposes the by-law to provide  funds'for tho installation of au electric  light plant on Kootenay river will also,  be submitted. ''  v The flrst reading of the by-law to  provide $10,000 for school purposes was  moved by alderman Hamilton, seconded  by alderman Selous. When the first reading was moved alderman Irving ask 3d  vhen it was proposed to submit the  by-laws for tho consideration of tho  ratepayers. He was of.the opinion that  the   voting   might -very   well   he   left  ' over until the municipal elections, and  in any event he did not see the necessity  - of voting $10,000 when'it would not be  required.  Upon the question ol the amount al-  ' dei-man Selous explained that tho council had already obligated itself to the  extent   of   $5000,   which,   with   extras,  ' furnishing and fixing up the grounds  would amount in the whole to $7700.  Alderman Irving suggested that the  amount of the by-law . should bo-cut  down to * the requirements of the present council.' -  -Mayor Fletcher did not like", this sug-  . gestion. He asked' alderman Irving if  he felt like going on a personal noto"  for the amount of the city's overdraft  at the end of the year. To this alderman  Irving replied that such a course had  not been found necessary in former  years 'and - he did not think it would  be necessary this year.  Alderman Selous explained his position with respect to the by-laws by saying that it had been understood all the  year that. the council should submit  some by-laws at the close of the year..  So far as the vote upon school appropriation went he expressed the opinion  that it, would be a pity to vote $5000  this year and then be-.forced to vote  another $3000 next year.  Alderman Madden expressed the opinion that some assistance would probably bo secured from the provincial government with respect to school expen-  dihires..Mayor Fletcher replied to_this_  that the member" for the district *h"a"d~  positively refused to ask for it on the  ground that the city should not go to  the government as a mendicant.  Alderman Irving stated that the  mayor's version was utterly at variance with the view expressed by Mr.  Houston to' himself in talking, the matter over. He had been led to believe  that there was a very good chance of the  "city's receiving further assistance from  the government and if this was the  case he did not think it wise for the  city to pass a by-law to raise more  money for school purposes than was  absolutely needed.  Alderman Selous suggested that the  .by-law should be advanced a stage  as it was and beforo being finally disposed of the council could get the School  trustees together and ascertain just  what amount might be required. The  question was then put and the second  reading of the by-law was carried, aldermen Irving and Madden alone voting in the negative.  The second reading of the by-law  authorizing the expenditure of $5000 for  an isolation hospital was then moved,  alderman Irving objecting. He pointed  lout that the limit of the city's borrowing powers at present was $185,000. A  petit-'on had been presented to the  council asking that a by-law be submitted to the ratepayers for the authorization of an expenditure of $150,000  for the installation of an electric light  plant on Kootenay river, and he was  of the opinion that the object of the  majority of the members of the council  in insisting upon borrowing money for  other schemes which the council would  not live long enough to carry out was  ' done-merely for the purpose of defeating the by-law authorizing an expenditure for electric light purposes. He did  not consider either the isolation hospital or the fire alarm scheme as sufficiently urpent to warrant the submission of by-laws authorizing expenditures  unon them in the last hours of the pre-  pent council. The matter nf the installation of a fire alarm system had been  taken up| early in the present year  when concessions were talked of by the  board of fire underwriters and he did  not think it wise to proceed in the matter of exneuditures along this line until some thing definite -was secured in  the -way of concessions from existing  insurance rates. He was opposed to tho  isolation hospital on the ground that  thc time was too short for thc present  council to take tho matter up. In his  opinion it was idle to say that the council had been committed to the two expenditures. If they were as urgent as  it was endeavored to make out it would  strike the average person as odd that  the submission of the by-laws for them  had been delayed till the last few days  of the council's term of office.  Alderman Selous explained that the  delay was occasioned by, reason of the  fact that thc city did hot succeed in  disposing of its- debentures until August. So far as the aggregate amou.it  went he did not think much more difficulty would be experienced in disposing of $170,000 worth of debentures  than of $150,000 worth. So far as the  by-law for the raising of $150,000 for an  electric light plant vent he said he had  a certain amount of doubt. He doubted  whether the city could get the money  and whether it would accomplish its  object if it was secured.  Alderman Gillett asked if it was proposed to submit the $150,000 by-law with,  thc others, and the latter replied that  he would be in favor of submitting them  all at the same time.  The second reading of thc isolation  hospital loan by-law was carried on the  same division as the school by-law, and  the fire alarm by-law was also advanced  on the sme vote. -       **  On motion of alderman Gillett, 'seconded by alderman Madden, a resolution.was passed rescinding that moved  by alderman Selous at a previous meeting by which the second reading of the  by-law to borrow $150,000 for an electric light plant on Kootenay river was  deferred until' the' title' to the power,  site was decided. The second reading  of tho by-law was then moved by alderman Irving and carried.  City engineer McCulloch was then  called~upon for his estimate as to the  cost of installing the plant on Kootenay river. He explained that when ho  had attempted -to complete his survey of  the ground he had been interfered-with,  but he was certain the plant could be  installed and the. pewter brought to  Nelson for $125,000. Tbis was for a  plant of 1000 horse power, capable, rf  being increased by the addition of machinery to 3000 horse power. As the  city was at present not using more than  300 horse power he thought this .would  be .sufficient for lighling purposes for  several years to come, ,and would also  leave considerable power to be disposed  of to the- tramway company or' othor  companies. At the request- of the mayor  the city engineer will prepare a written  estimate of the cost ..of installing Jie  plant nnd of bringing the power to Nsl-  son, as well as such changes as would  be necessary in the wiring of the city,  and have the same ready foi the meet-  ing"of the council on Thursday evening.  The matter of furnishing the1 now high  school, which wus'introduced by a ,communication, from Dr. Arthur of the"  school board, was left over pending the  vote upon the by-law, it being announced that the school would not be ready  for'occupancy until well on toward the  1st of February.  It was decided to spend $125 in put-  ling tho- channel of Cottonwood creak  in shape in the neighborhood of the  power house.  It was decided to leave the opening  of the lane in block 22 over to the next  council,'as it would cost $125.  The city enginer was authorized to  have Cedar street made safe for teams  at a cost of 350.  son check for ��50,000 and November  8th Burge presented a check for ��15,-  000 drawn by Marks in his favor, while  Mance the same day cashed another of  Marks' chocks for ��10,000. A witness  testified to a number of smaller transactions. When tho bank was enjoined  the amounts standing to the credit of  the accused were: Burge, ��13,589  Marks ��10,901, Mance ��15,987.  Attached a Locomotive.  GUTHRIE, Oklahoma Territory, December 2.���Saturday's westbound Choctaw passenger train was attached by  the sheirff of Parkersburg, Oklahoma,  and detained until a judgment of $7G  was satisfied. When uie enginer was  about to leave the station he found that  his engine was prevented from "continuing its journey by a log chain which  had boen fastened to it by the sheriff.  A discharged employee had secured the  attachment. H. B. Yarmen, terasurer of  the road, was in his private car at the  rear of the train accompanied by a  party of eastern friends. After parleying with the sheriff for half an hour,  Mr. Yarmen paid the judgment and the  train was released:  FRIENDS FEAR SHE IS DEAD  Story, However, Denied  NEW YORK, December 2.���Rev. Dr.  Henry C. Haskell, representative of the  American board of foreign missions of  .Boston at Samakov, Bulgaria, has sent  the following dispatch from Sofia, Bulgaria, to the World concerning rumors  of the death of Miss Stone, the missing  missionary: "We hope that the" dreadful news is untrue) but there is reason  to make us fear otherwise. If the captives are dead the fact would account  ior the determined insistence on the  part of the brigands that the ransom  money be paid before the captives are  delivered to us. It would account for  the brigands' stubborn refusal to give  safe -conduct to one of our representatives to see Miss Stone and Mme. Tsilka  "in order to certify to us that they aref  alive before wo pay over the i ransom  money. It would appear that .it was  really on this point and not on' the^  contention that the sum offered by us"  was insufficient, that negotiations for  the surrender c>|f -the captives, were  broken off recently. Besides, the brigands intimated that they would- delay  giving up the captives until spring, although it is their first interest to close  the ' matter --up as quickly . as possible.  These considerations naturally weigh-  with us in view of the reports now  prevalent that the two women are dead.  Moreover, we have some confirmation  of the grave _news and we are sending men to learn the facts."  WASHINGTON, December 2.���Secretary Hay this afternoon received a  cablegram from Spencer Eddy, United  States charge "d'affaires at Constantinople, saying he had received information on what he regarded as good authority to the effect that Miss Stone and  Mme. Tsilka are "still alive.  LIVERPOOL BANK  ROBBERY  Details of the Fraud.  LONDON, December 2. ���- Thomas  Peterson Goudie, the bookkeeper of the  Bank of Liverpool who disappeared at  the time of the discovery that the bank  had been robbed pf about ��170,000  ($850,000), was captured this morning  at.Bootle, near Liverpool, where he had  been in hiding.. Goudie had ��300 in  his pocket when arrested. He will be  brought to London for trial with the  other men taken into custody in connection with the robbery, two of whom  "Dick" Burge, the pugilist, and Charles  F. T. Kelly, the bookmaker of Bradford,  were remanded this morning after a  partial hearing of the evidence against  them. Hundreds of people clamored  for admission into the ,>_uall court room  at Bow street, hardly capable of holding  those directly interested in the case.  Charles Mathew, council for the victimized bank, in presenting the case  against the. prisoners gave the first authentic details of the frauds. He explained that there had been 27 checks  forged'. The first two affected Goudie.  The next twelve, representing in value  ��25,300, would be mainly traced to  Kelly. Other checks aggregating ��53,-  000 would be first traced to Kelly and  afterwards to Kelly ana another person  not yet before the court. Six other  chocks, valued at ��91,000, would be  traced, firstly, to Larrie Marks, who  paid that into his bank account, but some  of the proceeds were also traceable to  Burge. The whole amount had been  drawn out of the Bank of Liverpool in  checks drawn to the account of R. W.  Hudson. Evidence was then presented  to show that Marks opened an account  with the Credit' Lyonnais at the end of  1899. In October, 1901, he paid in.the  first Hudson check, amounting to  ��50,000."- Later he introduced Burge,  who opened an account after the first  Hudson check was paid in. In October,  Marks deposited two more checks for  ��14,000. On November 1st, Burge, accompanied by Marks, cashed a check  for ��13,000, receiving ��7000 in notes.  The same day the identical notes were  deposited by James Mance, whom Marks  in the meantime introduced at the bank.  Marks, November 5th, deposited a Hud-  Possland Local News.

WASHINGTON, December 2. ��� The  defense in the case of Mrs. Lola Ida"  Bonine, charged with the murder .of  James Seymour Ayres, today began the  introduction of the testimony and placed  15 witnesses on the stand before the  court adjourned for the day. The line  of examination showed that the purpose  was to establish that Mrs. Bonine evinced no particular partiality toward Ayers  and that her" conduct and bearing to  ward him differed in no respect from  that displayed toward other guests of  tho hotel. ���  The first -witness called was William  C. Hay, who with*-his family lived at  the Kenmore at' the time of the tragedy. He testified that the .dances at the%  Kenmore were usually arranged by Mrs."  Bonine and that at these dances her  bearing toward Ayers was nothing out  of the ordinary. It had been her habit,  he said, when the dancers were not  prompt in their attendance to go to  their rooms and urge them to come  down. He stated on cross examination  that he understood it had been Mrs.  Bonine's intention to leave the hotel,  but after the tragedy he had advised'  her it-would be improper to do so untr  the affair was-cleared up. Richard T.  Jenks" testified that he -heard Mrs.  Bonine giving ��� Ayres advice - "against  drinking ,to excess.  George B. Gardiner, assistant attorney  in the interior department, to whom  Mrs. Bonine has told her story and who  was one of the government witnesses,  testified that on the night of the tragedy  he had seen Mrs. Bonine and Ayres  dancing together and had observed  nothing unusual in his or her conduct.  David C. Mooney. a clerk ih the sixth  auditor's office, said he had observed  Mrs. Bonine dance with Ayres, but saw  nothing in her attitude towards him  different from that to others. Similar  testimony was given by other witnesses.  One of the jurors was taken suddenly  ill during the day, but with> the aid .of  a physician managed to continue  throughout the day. The trial will be  resumed tomorrow.  Deserters Cause Much Trouble  WASHINGTON,     December    2.���Ac-  opened officially this afternoon.

WASHINGTON, December 2.���The  opening day of the first session of the  fifty seventh congress of the house of  representatives furnished a spectacle  that delighted the crowded galleries.  The machinery of the house is cumbrous  and is set in motion by a laborious  process, but the spectators today evidently did not consider it tedious, as  they clung to their places through the  entire pi-oceedin(gs, which lastejd for  one and a half hours, probably half the  time being consumed in the monotonous  proceeding of calling the roll. The organization of the house was accom-i  plished according to time honored pre-'  cedents. Speaker Henderson was sworn  in by general Bingham, the father of  the house," .and after delivering a.  very graceful speech in recognition of  the honor bestowed upon him, he in  turn administered the oath to the members elect. The usual committees were  appointed to inform the president and  the senate that the house was organized and ready to do business. A committee of three, consisting of Messrs.  Payne, Bingham and Richardson, was  appointed to join a similar committe  cording to~Manila���newspapers, copies  of which have been received at the war  department, the massacre of company  C, Ninth infantry; at Balangiga, Samar,  was planned by deserters from the  American army. The newspapers state  that two such deserters are , known to  have acted as spies two days before the  massacre. It is said that when the  First infantry was relieved by the  Ninth on the island of Samar, these deserters obtained some uniforms which  had got adrift during the transfer and  thus equipped passed as American regulars. The deserters in Samar are becoming very bold, it is stated, and it is  not an infrequent sight to find-notices  written in .English, pasted on trees and  shrubbery inviting Americans to join  the insurgents instructing them how to  enlist. It is also said to be a generally  understood fact that deserters from the:  Ninth cavalry (colored) are responsible  for all the troubles the American troops  have been having in Batangas province.  It is said that deserters from this regiment led the fight near Lipa in July in  which captain Wilhelm and lieutenant  Ramsay, Twenty-first infantry, and  lieutenant Lee of the engineers were  killed. General Smith in Samar and the  Twentieth infantry in Batangas are  said to be hot on the trail of the deserters.        ' .  Opening of the Exposition.  CHICAGO, December 2.���The International" Live Stock Exposition was formally opened here tonight before a  large crowd which crowded the Dexaer  Pavk amphitheater.

Both men have large families. The murderer is not yet arrested.  TORONTO, December 2.���Hon. George  E. Foster delivered a temperance address yesterday. Speaking of the effect  of.the decision of the privy council in  connection with prohibition in Manitoba, the ex-finance minister, said the  Jesuit would prove the metal of which  temperance men were made more than  it would stagger politicians. It was not  a difficult matter to place legislation  on the 'statutes said he, but it did require courage to make sure that such  legislation was afterwards enforced.  OTTAWA, December 2.���Sir Wilfrid  Laurier has recommended to the treasury board that one year's leave of absence without pay be allowed officers  and men of the Northwest mounted  police who wish to enlist for service in  South Africa with the Canadian yeomanry. It has been suggested to colonel  Evans that the new contingent be called  the Second Battalion Mounted Canadian  Rifles and it is not improbable that  this_name_will_be_flnally^selected   BOXED  UP FIFTEEN  DAYS  Almost Dead When Discovered.  NEW YORK, December 2.���When a  longshoreman today dropped into the  hold of the steamer Palatia of the Hamburg American line just arrived at the  Hoboken docks, he was startled to hear  a weak voice call for water. Then he  heard moans. Summoning assistance  he made a search and came across the  form of a man lying_ across some salt  sacks. The man was .dragged" to the  deck and became unconscious and tonight is at the Hoboken hospital with  little chance of recovery or indeed of  ever telling his strange tale. He is suffering from starvation.  A detailed investigation shows that  the stranger had been,boxed up in Germany in a packing case marked "J. B.  71." In the case was a small bottle  which had contained whisky and also  some crumbs of bread. A piece of paper  was found marked "John Beck." The  box was marked in German, "This side  up with care." There was no air hole  in the case and the. man must have existed on what came through the joining  of the boards. The hatch to this hold  had not been opened from the time the  Palatia left port until today. It is the  opinion of the investigators that during  the last of the trip the stowaway became  so frenzied that he broke out of the box  and there was no way for him to give  the alarm. The man was well dressed,  evidently a German about 30 years old.  Ho had less than a dollar in German  money in his pockets. Up to the present the consignor or consignee of the  case has not been discovered. Yesterday and early today an American ex-  press_wagon called for a box marked as  this one was and it is believed that  through this circumstance something  more may be learned of this strange  affair. The Palatia is a freighter, very  slow and was longer than usual in making this trip. It is believed the man was  in his perilous position at least fifteen  days.    QUEBEC, December 2.���Jacques Ma-  loun, lawyer, died Saturday night, aged  76 years.  GREAT LEGISLATIVE BATTLE ANTICIPATED.  BREAD USURY TO BE THE BATTLE  CRY OF MANUFACTURERS -    .

No evidence to sustain the charges was presented to the court.    Commander Uriel  Sobree has succeeded captain Tilley as   - .  naval governor of Tutula.

The question is one that concerns all'sections of the province,  for  unless all sections are fairly represented  in'the legislative assembly, the heeds of  one locality may be neglected in order  that1 another locality   may   get   that to  which it is not entitled.   The1 plan outlined by The Tribune divided the province into three classes of constituencies.  The first, cities of 5000'population and  over.    These were given a representa-  *   tive for each 5000 population. Victoria's  representation would remain as   it 'is  now���four members���as her population  is slightly in excess of 20,000. Nanaimo's  would remain as it is at present���one  member���as' her   population   is   in   the  neighborhood    of    60o0.        "Vancouver  would get an increase of one member,  as her population is 26,000; but it is not  likely the increase would be insisted on,'  as the extra member could be'given to  the islands'in the gulf of Georgia.   New  Westminster's' representation would remain as at present, and Rossland and  Nelson would be treated the same as the  Coast cities,  each   getting   a   member.  Allowing the extra   member   to   which  Vancouver    could    very    properly   lay  claim to go to the islands in the gulf,  would leave 12 members for the cities  of Victoria, Vancouver,  Nanaimo, New  Westminster; Rossland, and Nelson.   As  these cities have a population of 70,000,  they would be getting a representative  for each 5800 of population.    The second class would embrace farming and  mining districts like those in the neighborhood of Victoria and Nanaimo on the  Island, and like New Westminster and  {Yale "and Kootenay on the Mainland.  (These districts would get a member tor  each 3500 ' of population. The Island  would get a member each for Victoria,  Cowichan, "Nanaimo, ; and Comox districts, and the Mainland would get four  members for New Wesminster district  (as at present),.five members for Yale  district, and six members for the two  Kootenays. This would be an increase  of four members (two for the Kootenays  and two for Yale). The third class  would take in the great undeveloped  and sparsely settled portions "of the  province, like the West Coast of Vancouver Island, Cassiar district,' Cariboo  district, and the two Lillooets, to which  six members are allotted, one less than  the present representation, theloss falling on Lillooet, which ' now has two  members.  The plan as outlined above is denounced by the, Revelstoke Hei aid as  one that is'unfair to North Kootenay,  ahd one that could only be advocated  by members who' are narrow-minded and  envious of the town' in which the Herald is printed. That paper calls on the  people of -North Kootenay to organize  to resist by every means possible such  an unjust and unfair redistribution of  seats. The Herald has evidently got a  bad attack of rabies, and its editor  should at once take a trip to one of the  health resorts' on Arrow lake.  The people will no longer-stand for  pocket borough representation. They  have had too much of that" in" the past.  If the pocket borough representation  of the past is wrong, why perpetuate  the system by changing the pocket  boroughs ��� -from. Esquimalt and Lillooet  to North" Kootenay?- The attempt that  is being made at Revelstoke to prove  that North Kootenay is like Cassiar and  Cariboo and the West Coast of Vancouver Island has "ended in failure, because  it is well known that there'are not 50  people in the whole of North Kootenay  north bf the main line of the Canadian  Pacific railway. That these 50 people  are entitled to a member in the. legisla  tive assembly will be disputed by every  fair-minded man in the province. If  mining districts like Windermere and  Trout Lake and Nakusp can be attached  to ridings whose people have interests  in common with theirs,' why not do it?  By doing so, the people along the main  line of the Canadian Pacific, whose interests are: identical, would be in one  riding, and if thc member elected from  such a riding happened to be a railway  man residing in Revelstoke instead of  a politician residing at Pallisar, the  chances are he would fairly represent  the interests of a large majority of the  people in the riding.  The Rossland Miner slings oyer a  column of double-leaded brevier at the  head of Smith Curtis, M.P.P., of Rossland, all because Mr. Curtis attended  the Beamish-Colistro banquet. Beamish  and Colistro were given an unusually  severe sentence by a police magistrate  for calling a man named Horn a "scab."  Mi\ Curtis, like thousands of other men  in Kootenay, believed the sentence was  severe beyond reason,- and his attendance at a banquet tendered Beamish  and Colistro 'on their1 release fr'om: jail  was the only way in which he could  outwardly show'that he dissented from  the judgment of Rossland's police' magistrate. It is a pretty come to pass if  men are to be muzzled for dissenting'  from the views of police magistrates  like Boiiltbee of Rossland and editors  like thoso now employed on the Rossland Miner.  The Ferhie Free Press of Saturday  publishes a statement from the merchants of that town which goes to  show that the management of the  Crow's Nest Coal Company promised*  to keep out of the store business. The  company is now erecting a store at the  mines and building houses there for the  miners, which is taken as an indication  that the policy of tue company has  changed, and that from this time on the  company will not cnty mine coal -wad J  make coke, but will sell tea and coffee  to the men who mine the coal and bake  the coke. This is a system that has been  so abused in many coal mining countries that legislation has been passed  to prevent it. Here in British Columbia  we have an Act which makes it illegal  for a mining company to sell merchandise if the works of tho company are  situate within a certain distance of  towns. At Fernie, the coal mines are  so far from the town that the provisions of this Act are non-effective. Tho  policy adopted by the Crow's Nest Coal  Company has induced many people to  locate in Fernie and engage in business pursuits. These people have spent  large sums in the purchase of town lots  from the coal company and in erecting  improvements thereon, and they think  ���the company is not 'keeping faith with  them in-its announced determination  to build and operate a store at its  mines and house its~employees in company houses. The people of Fernie are  right, and ' in their 'struggle for their  property interests they should have the  active' sympathy '��� of the 'people of' the  province.  The admission by colonel Prior, M. P.,  of Victoria that his friends were guilty  of corrupt practices to ; secure his election last fall looks like a political "deal.  All elections in Victoria are corrupt,  simply because the people want to be  bought; but probably they are no more  corrupt in Victoria than in other constituencies throughout Canada. While  hiring carriages was 'admitted 'by tho  colonel on the part'of his-friends,-'he  himself, he said, was - as pure a-5 -the  snow that falls on our h^h--mountain  peaks, and 'the court too^htm at his  word.- He was unseat ;d, -but iiot disqualified. It is generally understood  there was a deal fixed up, and' that ihe  colonel has carried" out his ' part of' it.  He will be succeeded 'as one of the  members for'Victoria by William Templeman, who will resign his-seriatorship,  and be appointed to a cabinet position.  Colonel Prior- will contest ��� Victoria  against E: V." Bodwell "for; a'seat in the  provincial house,-'and*if elected will-be  made lediier in ''place of James Dunsmuir. The ^Coast politicians ��� imagine  any deal "they'make will-be ratified by  the members for the-interior; but, it is  just possiblej they may-'make'one deal  that- will not be -ratified.  ^^^^^^���jS'00-00'^'S>'00'00'00'^'00'00'00'00'00    .'.    ^��K���,  to  00 *i0*.'t��0  '<5__\'S��' _K_'*����Z'ssaf*  *0 &0 0S&* S!>' ��$&�� g*^ -Sfe  . ��� ^. ��� **. ��� ^ ��� *���* ��� **v*jsr.  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  SPECIAL SALE FOR THIS WEEK ONLY OF LADIES' AND CHILDREN'S FURS.

He pleaded guilty.  He disclaimed, however, any personal  knowledge'of the action and the court  in; declaring the' seat vacant' said: "He  lis' absolutely absolved from 'any - corrupt practices.

IC Pocahontas had married John  Smith, captain, five years sooner than  she did, she would have been maternal  ancestor to thc entire state of Virginia.  As it is, sho is great grand-mother to  only ninety-nine per cent". A few shy  squaws got in ahead of her.  The old man���Powhatan ��� isn't any  .earthly good to anybody., except to name  steamboats and sleeping cars after. He  was a bad Indian. Of course, as Pocahontas' father, he is most everybody's  -ancestor down in Virginia; but he was  -a shifty old cuss and slid out from under  tho responsibility. For dirt and degradation and other attributes Powhatan  was a "beaut."  John Smith, captain, went galavant-  iug up the James river, seeking a few  colonial possessions of his own, which  lie intended to "Have and to Hold.  Primarily he wasn't gunning after Indians; and there was no deep seated intention on his mind of founding an aristocracy.' Like many another man who  starts out on a purpose, he got switched  off but his intentions were conquest.  His constitution was following his flag,  and came very near getting his constitution into trouble.  Smith was a parleyer. Powhatan  caught him sniffing around his camp and  had him and his gang of iron-clad  heelers pinched. The job very closely  resembled the round-up of a speak-easy  on a Sunday afternoon. Old Powhatan  -was marshal of police in civilian's dress.  Powhatan's civilian's dress consisted of  a ring in his nose and a piece of nis  mind. ,���     .    ,    ,  When Smith found himself pinched  and found that Powhatan meant business, even if he wasn't in full uniform,  what did the gallant captain do? What  would aily fellow do when his captor  had a good looking daughter? He^made  ���a grand stand play for Pocahontas. She  ' didn't give him tho meringue stare,  either. She got stuck on his sheet-iron  pants, his double riveted vest, his air  tight stove-pipe hat and his frying pan  shoes. These were the chapter- leadings  iu the glossary of her admiration. But  she also sympathized with his sad  plight, admired his crop of whisker*?,  and just fell in love with his silver-'  mounted toilet articles, face powder,  rouge, smelling salts and other articles  in his dressing suit case.  Pocahontas had a woman's inborn  sympathy for a man in hard luck. Naturally Smith's noisy attire of "armor-  plate impressed her tnat he was overdressed. Comparatively speaking Pocahontas was justified in this opinion.  Up to this point no glances of love  had passed between them.

Powhatan ordered Smith brought forward. He asked him to be kind enough  to remove his boiler-llauge collar - so  as not to dull the axe.  Smith gave Pocahontas the wink and  said: "This is your cue."  Stage waited. .  Smith shook himself and his pants  rattled like a keg of horse shoes. Then  he strode bravely forward and laid his  neck across thc smoothest stone he  could find, so as not.to spoil the stage  picture.  Out stepped a swarthy brave, drizzling with sweat, a cute little axe in his  hand. He steadied himself to do the  honors of the occasion.  Then came Pocahontas' great entrance. With a shriek she bounded over  the sward and cast herself across the  prostrate   body  of   Smith.  Powhatan thought she was sea sick.  Smith thought an ocean liner had dropped on him. Then Pocahontas began her-  speech. For more than an" hour she  spoke in volcanic exclamations. Smith  enjoyed the first half hour fairly well;  then he grew a little nervous for fear  the fellow with thc axe standing up  there would get tired and might forget  what ho started out to do. He couldn't  quite make out what Pocahontas was  saying, either. Sometimes it sounded as  if she were telling her father that they  were all out of laundry soap; then she  seemed disappointed because the screens  hadn't been put up and the wooden steps  hadn't been taken off. But it was a beautiful address.  Suddenly Powhatan jumped up, ran  to Smith, seized him by the hand,  raised him to his feet and went through  his pockets. Smith knew he was forgiven. His first impulse was to play  the white man's shabby trick of going  back on the girl; but Powhatan made  it so pleasant for him that he thought  it better to act on the level. And from  that time to this the white race throve  and aristocracy took a start. Any aristocracy you happen tb have that can't  get back to Pocahontas and John Smith,  captain, has some elbowing to do.  But it "is never too late to elbow.  ***^�� *^k��*^<-^*���� ?b>l�� ^^. *^^*^9^��^^ *l29^ ���JS^ *\J2S  OIE1    O-^IST-AJD-A.

Powhatan's court convened immediately after morning prayers. Smith had  to forego the luxury of brushing his  teeth; but in view of being minced before noon, he didn't mind' a trivial  omission of that sort. Pocahontas  brought him his breakfast of grilled  tenderloin,, scrambled eggs, Parker-  House rolls and cocoa. She was luxur-  ously adorned with bear's grease for the  role of hostess, which she played with  the quaint modesty of the Venus de  Medici. Smith ate sparingly. He missed  the finger-bowls; the napkins were  smaller than he was accustomed to.  But he managed to tmcc a little nourishment, and after breakfast he joined  Pocahontas, gave her guff, as they say  in the classics, told her funny stories  and let hor fish in his galvanized pockets. Pocahontas was dead easy. Smith  discounted all the lovers 'she ever had,  because he wore smokestack clothes,  had whiskers and talked love. True, she  couldn't understand a single word he  said, but that didn't make any-;/difference. She sat there and snickered and  blinked and was happy.. ,  ��� Smith saw his opportunity and offered to marry her, to take her to England to get her some clothes, to have  her teeth filled, to let her sleep until  noon, make calls, chew gum, gossip, go  to church, sit on the front steps, wear  lorgnettes,. use talcum powder���Pocahontas couldn't resist such a bunch of  temptations as that, now'could she?  And love isn't a matter of language.  It's only a matter of listening, and so  few people are good listeners. We can't  tell v/hat the robing are singing, but  they are the same dear little, robins.' So  It was with Pocahontas. Smith was in  trouble. She could help him. Pocahontas  was courageous. So she girded herself  with all the girtlable girding she had.  and while it wasn't any ton much, still  Pocahontas  was the  Shirt Waist  Girl.  Away in a remote corner of the forest  Powhatan convened his braves and took  un the matter of disposing of Smith.  Like nil Indian discussions the debatp  was carried on in silence, the one Indian  ���rjttrlbn.tn which our compess hasn't  preserved with hallowed reverenc?  Powhatan called for t.he yeas and nay?

The buildings were at the  old Long Branch steamboat landing.  Boats landing there connected with the  Southern Railroad and conveyed passengers to summer resorts.  In a Hungarian Pawnshop.  This is the story of how the priceless  black pearl which belongs to king Edward's diadem, and which was stolen  in 1751, has just been recovered from a  Hungarian pawnshop. The story is toh  by Hugo Klein, the Hungarian clerk  who identified the pearl and caused its  seizure by the Vienna police:  On October 10th I was, as usual, alone  in the store in Hartengasse, Budapest,  where I was the only   clerk,   when   a-  young  woman  entered.    Much  to  my-  astonishment she paid no attention.to  our exhibition of cheap jewelry, but sitting down on a stooi began to search  her Gretchen pockM.   "Ah, here" it is!"  she said.    With that  she exhibited  a  tiny package done up in soiled paper.  Then she tore off'tht cover, and holding'  an o\al something between thumb an'd  forefinger,  asked,   "V\hat may this  be.  worth'."  I expected to see some old ring or  other trinket destined for the melting  pot, but what I did perceive took my.  breath away���a large, drop-shaped pearl  of deepest black, matchless in size and  beauty. "May I ask you were you got  the pearl?" I enquired. "I don't see  what that has to do with it," she replied. "Well, I own a small pawnshop,  in the province. One of my customers  offered the pearl as a pledge."  When after a while I returned the  jewel, inwardly cursing my poverty, I  said, "Impossible, my dear young lady,  I can't value it." .The girl cooked unconvinced. She was about to leave the  store m a " huff when I caught her by  the arm. "Let me finish," I said; "there  is but one firm in the country that could  buy your pearl���Schneiders, in.Vienna,  court jewelers to his majesty, the em-,  peror Francis Joseph. A treasure of that  style and value can be handled only by,  ���parties dealing with royalty, as very  few private people would care to" spend  the price the jewel ought to bring."  I gave her the fim's address and she  handed' me her card and "walked out.  The pasteboard bore the name of' Cecile Roth. Taking everything into consideration, might not all be part-of some  great jewelry robberies. I had" read from  time to time of just such -things.  I remember now an advertisement  wherein the English treasury offered a  reward of ��2500 for the return of a certain black pearl stolen from the Tower  jewel house some- hundred and fifty  years ago. Back to the store ,. I went,  and examined' the half blurred paper  giving a minute discription of the rare  gem. Size, color, luster���all fitted the  pearl Cecil had offered for sale exactly.  Half an hour later 1 was on niy way  to the depot, the English treasury proclamation safely tucked away in. an inside; pocket. Arriving-in Vienna toward  7 a. m., I called at the -great jewelers  and as luck would have it, the head of  the firm happened to be in. ,, .  ===^Whether===you=^guessed'===right==or=  wrong," he said nothing will be lost  by following up. the trail."  At exactly ten minutes past eleven  the door of the great store Auf dem  Graben opened .and in'walked' my acquaintance of the day- before.' My hand  trembled as I struck the bell just loud  enough to catch the ear : of the firm's  gem expert who had been instructed to  attend to Frl Cecile in case she showed  up. I thought she spent'a small eternity over the ��� unwrapping process. At  last the expert held the precious what-  may-it-be?-between,his finger tips.  "Above all," he said, raising his voice  for tho benefit ofthe doorkeeper, "you  will be good enough to follow me to the  president of police to tell- him where  you got this jewel of inestimable value."  His excellency, the president of police, received us in person.  After stating her name, age, occupation, etc., the girl told the following  story:  "I inherited a pawnshop from my  father, an invalid of the Kossuth wars.  One of my customers is Akos .Kelemen,  a son of father's best friend and companion-in-arms. Akos has a hard time  keeping his farm .and frequently comes  to my store to raise a little money on  household goods. 'In that way we became very well acquainted.  "Well, a week ago today I was passing by Akos's little home'when I heard  angry voices in the yard, and entering  saw a bailiff in the act of laying arrest  on my friend's only cow.  "Akos begged me to help him. 'There  is only one trinket left,' he whispered;  father valued it most highly as a souvenir, but whether it is worth anything  or not I can't say.'  "I told the bailiff that I would talk  matters over with Akos and followed  the latter into the house, where he  showed me this pearl, explaining that it  was part of a scarfpin which originally  belonged to his parent's master, who  gave it to him on the day of his death.  As Frl Roth concluded her story the  manner of the- president of police  changed. "What you say sounds very  plausible," he said, .bowing politely,  "hut I will have to detain you nevertheless until" the Grosswardein police  have been heard from." And he sent  her to the hotel Erzherzog Karl.  From Grosswardein corroborative evidence arrived within a very few hours,  and the English ambassador broke all  records in responding to the call.

Neil McMillan, -who has the contract  for moving the" output of the Molly-'  Gibson mine, was in Nelson yesterday  for the purpose of buying additional  stock.  Harry Wright has started on his  work of assessing the city' upon personal property and income, the two  sources of wealth in incorporated cities  which .are subject to - provincial taxation.  James Baker of Slocan City, a member of the executive board of the Western Federation of Miners, was in Nelson yesterday en route' from attending  a mieeting oC the board at .Denver,  Colorado.        <���  ���x A change has been made in the Imperial hotel by- the retirement of J. D.  Naismith. For the future the house  will be under the management of Joe  Harwood and 'Ed Brown, recently- of  the Phair hotel bar.  The tram cars did not stop running  on the first of the month as was pre-  predicted. It is now said the company  will continue operations until the arrival of director Drummond, who is  expected to arrive in Nelson about the  middle of the month.  The many friends of Samuel B. Bennett will be grieved to learn of his  death, which occurred at the residence  of his brother-in-law, John J. Malone,  "cai'ly_yesterday_morning���The-deceased-  was ailing for some time from an attack  of diabetes, but was not confined to his  bed until within the past week,  The meeting of the Nelson hockey  team; which was ��� held in the Queen's  hotel last evening for the purpose of reorganizing for the season, was well attended: Officers were elected as follows:  W. A. ^Galliher, M.P., honorary president; H. G. Neilands, president; N. T.  Mcalcod, first vice-president; Joe Carter, second vice; W. Walmsley, manager; S. Nelands, secretary-treasurer;  W. A. Wetmore, captain. The executive will be made up of the following:  Dr. McLennan, F. A. Tamblyn, J. G.  Bunyan, Dr. Doherty and R. Carley.  The club will have a much stronger  team this season to defend their championship honors than the team which  landed them last season. It was decided to send away for goal nets and  uniforms and" also to hold a smoker  about the Jst of January,  Aftermath of the Fire.  Captain Gifford of the Silver King  mine is making every preparation for  an early resumption of work upon the  Silver King group. He said he had every  reason to believe that work upon the  temporary bunkhouse capable of accommodating forty men would be completed  last evening and his chief concern now  is diningCroom accommodation. There  are at present some twenty-one families  living at the mine in quarters of their  own, and as none of these buildings  were destroyed by the fire the situation  was not so serioua as at first feared,  but there will be no way of getting  around a reduction in the working  force at the property. Just how many  men it will be possible to work to advantage it is impossible to say, but present indications are that the force will  not exceed 50 men. It is not likely that  any attempt will be made to rebuild the  boarding house until the spring, as  winter has now set in on the hill and  building could only be carried on with  the greatest difficulty. The interruption  to mining operations is regarded by  captain Gilford as the greatest loss resulting to the company by the flre, as  lie -was in iopea ol making a record for  tbe -propertj betae Oie end at Uie pre  sent year. The mine never looked better  than it does at preseht and it was expected that within the next couple of  weeks the ore would be cut in the lower  levels. The reduction of the force at the  mine will also have its effect on the ore  shipments and until spring it is not  1 kely ti at any more ore will be sent  down from the mine than is necessary  for the operation of the tramway in  moving supplios and material up to the  mines.  Supreme Court Casee.  There arc but three cases on tho list"  l'or tho suprmene court sittings, which  will open before the chief justice in the  court house this riibrning.

Conditions on the Isthmus  COLON, Colombia, December 2.���The  perfect and other officials who were  made prisoners by the liberals at the  time of the capture of Colon returned  here last night from their place of confinement in the mountains. They resumed their respective posts this morning. Senor de la Rosa, secretary of general Domingo Diaz, the liberal leader,  has received a letter signed by the entire mercantile body thanking him for  the protection given to property and  commending him for the good behaivor  of the troops during the liberal regime,  Panama police now guard Colon. American marines are still traveling on the  Panama trains,  PANAMA, December 2.���The city of  Panama continues quiet. Following  general Alban's orders the Colombian  gunboat Boyaca, towing a launch bearing soldiers, has left Panama. The destination of this expedition is reported  to be Agua Dulce. From this point government soldiers will attempt" to clear  the remaining bands of liberals from.the  department of Panama. General Bel-  arosa Porras, the liberal leader, is supposed to be in the vicinity of Agua  Dulce. American marines are still  ashore at Panama. Juan Antonio Jim-  inizaf formerly a member of the staff  of the insurgent general Domingo Diaz,  has come voluntarily to Panama where  he delivered himself to general Alban.  General Diaz did not instruct Jiminiza  to come in and surrender. The, former  insurgent says he is sick and disgusted  with the campaign. After he had surrendered general Alban put Jiminiza in  a carriage and accompanied him to his  house. Upon arrival general Alban  said to the wife of Jiminiza: "Look, 1  have brought you your husband." The  British sloop of war Icarius has returned to Panama from South American  ports.
