I.*"  OTTAWA, December 6.���The capital  was shocked tonight by the news that  Bessie Blair, fourth daughter of hon.  A. G." Blair, minister of railways, and  Henry A. Harper, assistant" editor of  the Labor Gazette, had been drowned  in the Ottawa river about a mile from  the city. The accident took place about  dusk In the water channel ofthe Ottawa  river, where the current is very swift  and the river about thirty five feet  deep. The party, consisting of Misses  May and Bessie Blair, Miss Snowball,  daughter of senator Snowball, H. A.  Harper, A. W. Tredgold of Dawson  City and Alex Creelman of the Imperial  bank had gone out on the river skating and proceeded' several miles down  the river. When returning Miss Bessie  Blair and Creelman, who were skating  ahead;1.*, suddenly pitched into an. air  hole. Harper, who was behind, at once  threw off his coat and made for the  party. He dove into thc water to help  Miss Blair and that" was the last seen  of. him. Creelman, tried to lift Miss  Blair out upon the Ice and in doingso  sank himself. When lie came np his  head struck the ice and he broke his  way through to clear air. Miss Blair in  the rneantime had disappeared. Tredgold and Miss Snowball hurried to shore  and secured assistance. Creelman was  rescued after some difficulty, but there  were no traces of either Miss Blair or  Harper and the bodies will probably  not be found till next spring. Harper  was a native of Barrie, about 27 years  old. He had been in" newspaper work in  Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa, until  his appointment as assistant editor of  tbo Labor Gazette.  Hon.

Harper, however, threw off  his coat and gauntlets and dove into  the water. Creelman' says that about  this time he sank and when he came up  his head struck against the ice and he  had to break it with his hand. He held  on. to the ice until Mathias Blair came  along with a boat and took him away.  Just then Tredgold arrived.  Curlers Elect Officers  -T-he^ annuaLan eeting_of _the_ Kootenay  I  Curling Association was held at the  Phair hotel last evening. M. L. Grimetl  of Sandon was in the chair, Stuart G.

Buchanan and Chris Morrison;  Sandon, Grimmett and one proxy; Revelstoke, Walley and J. Rea; and Nelson, N. T. Macleod ami Stuart G. Campbell.

The  membership in "the local club was reported at 100, Rossland reported a meai-  bership of 70, Sandon of 30, Kaslo of  15, and Revelstoke oC 40. Tho first  business on the order paper was the  fixing of the time and place for the  annual bonspiel of the association.  Tho meeting had two places to decide  between, Sandon and Nelson, but the  local -men withdrew, their claim and  Sandon was thereby made the unanimous choice.. The opening day was  fixed for Monday, February 17th, and the  meeting will probably last five days.  " The election of officers for the association resulted as follows:. J, S. C.  Fraser of Rossland, patron; M. L. Grimmett of Sandon, president; G. O. Buchanan of Kaslo, first ���vice; D. McCartar  of. Revelstoke, second vice; A. B. Mackenzie of Rossland, third vice; and J.

Tamblyn of Nelson, and Messrs,  Hood and Kavariaugh of Sandon.  .Votes of thanks were passed to the  retiring officers as well as a vote of  thanks to the management of the Phair  hotel for courtesies extended. Sandon  was particularly anxious to secure.the  meeting for this season, as the Sandon  club will be in much better shape to  finance the bonspiel this winter than  it will next in view of the club's intention to erect a new rink next summer,  -which "will be a considerable tax upon  the resources of the organization. It is, J  Gatiimuim Gun Is Disfavored  WASHINGTON, December U.���The report of the mixed army and navy board  headed by major Knight of the corps  of engineers, appointed under the terms  of an act of congress to test t.he Gath-  mann gun has beeu laid before congress  by secretary Root. The board sums up  tho resuft as follows: "After careful  consideration of the effect of the various  impacts on the respective targets of  the Gathmann gun, the 12-inch army  service rifle would have wrought equally  serious injury to a modern battleship  as regards its buoyancy, the. interior  mechanism, the armament and the personnel. There is nothing in-the Gathmann system to recommend its' adoption  in the public service of the United  States or to warrant further experiments."         Pats of Captives Still Unknown.

Seem-  ii'gly the report did not come from eye  witnesses and needs verification. Miss  Stone was inured to hardship, of firm  faith, and not one to die of grief." Mr.  Haskill also telegraphs from Samakov:  "There is an apparently well founded  rumor that both- captives. were : alive  and well November 24th In a secret  sheltered place, where they were likely  to remain for weeks.

TOPPAN ARRAIGNED  Charged With Three Murders  BARNSTABLE, Massachusetts, December 6.���Deserted by relatives and  without even a woman companion, Mrs.  Jane Toppan of Lowell stood up in the  superior court room late this afternoon  and heard the grand jury indictment,  charging her with the murder of three  persons whom she had been engaged to  nurse back to health, but who had died  under her charge and according to the  indictment, by her hands. The indictments, and there are three, one charging her with the death of Mrs. Mary D.  Gibbs, a second with the death of"A.  P. Davis, both of Calumet, and the  third that of Mrs. Genevieve A. Gordon  of Chicago, all allegeu that the cause  was the administration of poisonous  drugs, ten grains of morphine or atro-  phine together, or by some poison unknown to the jury. For ten minutes  the woman stood lightly clutching the  rail as the clerk in the twilight stumbled  through the indictment charging her  with the murder of Mrs. Gibbs. At  length a kerosene lamp to give light for  the clerk was brought, but. before he  started on his second indictment Miss  "Toppan's counsel spared her further  agony by waiving the reading and all  that remained was for her to plead.  Three times she was asked if she was  guilty of the murders, and three times  she replied in a low voice, "Not guilty."  Her counsel then asked that the state  appoint counsel for the accused woman  and chief justice Mason said that, he  would take the matter under advisement. When this was over and the  jury had dispersed, the woman was led  away to her cell, not to return until  some time next spring, when she will  be given a trial by jury as allowed by  law to combat the evidence which the  government in the meantime will have j  accumulated against her.

The attorneys for Molineux al-  Suit Against Pullman Estate.  -SAN MATEO, December . 6. ��� Mrs.  George M. Pullman, Jr., smarting, from  the 'rebuff contained in a curt telegram  from her husband's mother, has - engaged attorneys to represent-her in a  suit involving the whole of the Pullman  fortune. On the day after young Pullman's death George A. Knight of the  firm of Knight & Heggerty, was summoned to San Francisco" by a telephone  message from the widow. To'*hini has  been intrusted the task" of preparing the  papers in the action for millions of dollars. A suit will not be commenced  immediately. .   *  George Pullman's body is to be taken  back to his mother's home in Chicago  before the contest is begun. The wife  of Sanger Pullman and his. .brother's  widow will both accompany the body.  As Mrs. Pullman Sr. has declared that  she does not want to see either Sanger's  wife or. George's widow, the arrival of  the funeral train may lead* to unpleasant complications. When Sanger telegraphed that he intended to start east  with his wife and her sister, his mother  showed the intensity of her hatred for  the two women by sending this message  to her son:  "You and you alone can come with  the body. Your actions astonish me  and I am heartbroken. My boy's body  must be sent to me for burial.  "MRS. GEORGE M. PULLMAN."  It was after the receipt of this message that showed the uselessness of attempting conciliatory measures that  Mrs. Pullman', jr., sent for attorney  Knight and placed \ the case in his  hands. Upon his advice she will disobey her mother-in-law's wishes and  start for Chicago on Monday or Tuesday with her husband's body.  The material for a romantic story  4ies^in=--the^histoi'y^ofc^the^la3t_three_  months of George Pullman's life/ For  two years his infatuation for Mrs.  Sarah Brazell has been the cause of  much comment at.Burlingame and elsewhere among his friends. Soon after  she met Pullman Mrs. Brazell obtained  a divorce, but until'three months ago  the decree that made the young man  free to marry was not rendered. Pullman and Mrs. Brazell were at his sister's homo in San Mateo, when the news  of the divorce reached them. Two days  later they were married in Nevada.  The bridegroom's health was so poor  at this time that ho could scarcely  stand alone. Before a week had passed  Pullman was seriously ill at San Mateo.  He rallied somewhat, then ho caught,  a heavy cold, and last Thursday morning a ruptured plumowary artery ended  his life.  Two days bofore his death Pullman  made a will, bequeathing everything to  his wife. The circumstances of his  marriage, sickness and death all following so closely, and the production now  of a will giving his widow claim at  least on millions of dollars, fittingly  concludes an eccentric career. Until  his brother and the others of the family are ready to-start mu the journey to  the East, Pullman's body will lie in the  reviving vault at Cypress Lawn Cemetery. It was taken there this afternoon  on a funeral car. The Foresters, of  whose order Pullman was a member,  escorted the body to the train. No  one except the widow, Sanger Pullman  and their immediate families was present.  Deserves Czolgoz's Fate  CHICAGO, ..December,: C���President  McKinley's assassin was cheered publicly in Chicago last night.

It was the climax of the debate on Socialism vs; Anarchy and came when the  audience, over 1000, had been, aroused  thoroughly by wild, oratorical denunciations. "Hurrah for'Czolgosz,'' shouted  aiman in the gallery, swinging his hat  above his head. Hisses and jeers, and,  yells of applause and cat calls came from  all parts of the house.The crowd rose  to its feet and a riot was only avoided  by the prompt action of the chairman.  BUT 31-2  WILL BE PAID FOR LEAD  AFTER JANUARY 1st.  Can Maintain Order at Tien Tsin. '  PEKIN, December 6.���-The principal  object of the visit to Pekin of Yuan Shi  Kai, the new viceroy of Chi Li, who arrived here December 3rd, is to induce  the foreign powers to relinquish control  of government at Tien Tsin.

The reduction, while an important one, has. been expected byv the  mine owners, and they were not hoping  for a better rate.  , After two weeks of discussion .the  Coeur d'Alene mine owners who have  been 'working in conference with the  officers of the American Smelting &  Refining Company at New York,' practically came to an agreement on the question of price Wednesday night. A message announcing the decision was received yesterday by John A. Finch of  the Standard from his. partner, A.-B.  Campbell, who' is in New York attending the conference.  "No contracts have been signed, but  the outlook is that 3, 1-2 cents will be  the price paid," said Mr. Finch last evening. "The smelting company- would  only offer to make' a contract on" that  basis for a term, of six "months.,' Even  then the smelting company reserves the  right to cancel the.contract on'60 days',  notice. That clause is inserted in case  the lead market should go to pieces.' '  "The reduction in.price will .be-a serious matter to the mine owners'/of the  district, and- they are now considering  what they will-do after-'the flrsVof the  year.   The proposition to build independent smelters is not - seriously considered.    The question.is  as  to wnether"  the mines shall accept the lower prices  offered   by   the- smelting   company   or'  shall close down.   A close down would'  be a most serious mehance to the prosperity of the country) and I do not think  that it will be done by the larger .mines.  "The condition confronting us, .however, is not a pleasant one. - Silver" has  been decining at a rate of about.a'cent  a week, and it looks as if it may go  down' to'50 cents. It has already fal-,  len about 6 cents since early-summer.  That decline," coupled with the ,'lbss ot  1-2 cent a pound on lead, means a1 loss  of about ?7 on every ton of- concentrates shipped. The Standard, for instance, has been paying dividends of  ?25,000 a month. Under the new-scale  its profits on the same output will be  cut in two.  "It is a part of the agreement which  is under discussion at New York that  the mines of the Coeur d'Alenes shall  continue their restricted output on  about the same basis as at present. The  manner in which the output shall be  divided among the various mines is a  matter that must be worked out among  the mine owners. For instance," the  Hecla is now closed down, and. the  Standard is shipping. The same people  are partly interested in each company.  "-It=will=not=beH?air=to=keep*--the^Hecla-  closed down indefinitely. Some arrangement will probably be made whereby it  can produce for a part of.the time at  least. In that,case the Standard would  probably reduce its output to correspond.  "Although tho new price for lead ' is  low, it is better than the. price which  the Utah lead miners will get. It is expected that they will receive about ?3.30  for their lead."  Opposed to Withdrawal of Troops  WASHINGTON, December 6. ��� The  war depart m ent today made public th��  first annual report of major-general  Chaffee, military governor of the Philippines. General Chaffee sums up th��  situation in the Philippines from a military point of view by stating that the  provinces of Batangas and Laguna in  Luzon and the Islands of Samar, Min-  doro, Cebu and Bohol constitute the  area now disturbed by any embodied  force of insurgents. He says that to the  physical character of the country, to the  nature of the warfare of the rebels, who1  are amigo and foe In the self-same  hour, to the humanity of the troops,  which Is taken advantage of by the rebels and the Inhabitants who sympathize with them, and to the fear of assassination on the part of the friendly  disposed if they give information to the  American forces is. due the prolongation of the guerilla warfare. Commenting upon the plan of gradually replacing  military and civil administration, general Chaffee says: "The withdrawal of  interference with civil affairs does not  mean withdrawal of the troops from  their stations to any considerable extent. On the contrary, this should not  be done hastily and when undertaken  should be gradual and more in the nature of concentrating that reduction of  force or abandonment of any considerable area of territory." He therefore  recommends that there be no further,  material reduction of troops before January, 1903. The civil governments  which are being organized, provincial  and municipal, general Chaffee says are  both new and untried and there is but  one certain and reliable method of ascertaining the progress of the Filipinos  in self government, namely, observation  hy the army. .���...'     i  ���l\.7:-:.c^  :---.--7n_.?*&  ;***&����  ���-:J7.?l!t.'T;  i:i$$_  tsi  ���Si.  -"* ?*f  ~t z^  *-&.  ���"Th  "&��  t-   r-  lS  ���&  ���frY  . ^  i>  n.^..  }*-  ?fa  m  t  ii^|-CT��^y>l-^vj^-v"  ^^iifi^R��ffis^'," f I***  wz  I:  f  m  l-tx  m  1*5  W  lw  m  I  t^Vp-HBaaw  fJEtH pLBOtf *ttIBttOTi  SAtftffiftAY lipMlM, MtiMBM % mi  -��=  ^^Ww_^_>^%*T<Vn ^to^MifefiHMiyi-t!

Few* people  in Nelson care little about what Frank  Fletcher's opinion of John Houston is,  and just as little of what John Houston  thinks of Frank Fletcher. In fact,  John Houston is very generally ;con-  demned for foisting Frank Fletcher jinto  his present official position; but' all  men are liable to make mistakes in a  life-time, and the one mistake John  Houston has made in Nelson was making Frank Fletcher mayor.  But the people are Interested in knowing whether the men they have honored  with office are trustworthy and honest.  John Houston has been honored by tbe  people of Nelson with oflice repeatedly,  and the question for the people is,-Has  John Houston been true to the trust  reposed inihim? If he has not .been  true, in what way has he been unfaithful? Frank Fletcher uoes not make  specific charges, but he makes charges  by inuehdo. The following questions  are straightforward. Can Frank  Fletcher answer any one of them in a  straightforward way ?  1. What other member of the refinery  committee besides Frank Fletcher attended any of the conferences with the  refinery people?  2. If no member of the committee  except Frank Fletcher attended any of  the conferences, why hot?  3. Was not electric power one of the  proposed considerations that was to be  given the refinery people if the refinery  was located at Nelson?  4. If it was dropped, why was it  dropped ?  5. If the city has no right to sell  electric power outside or the city limits.  whz is it tbat &he ��>% *�� &*�� &&&&'  the Hall Mines smelter water for four  years?  G. Where and when did John Houston  oppose the building or operation of  either the gas works or the tramway?  7. When did John Houston become  the principal holder in the Nelson Elec-  tris Light Company? And if. he was at  any time the principal holder, what was  the amount of his holdings?  8. If John Houston has, as an editor  of newspapers in Nelson, been a "mud-  thrower" and "vilifler," why is it that  he has not been sued for libel? He has  always been able to pay his debts, and  he has never been judgment proof.  9. When and where did John Houston  oppose the granting of a charter for a  railway through the Boundary country?  10. When and where did John Houston advocate, $1.40 a day as a fair living  wage for a laboring man?  11. When and where did John Houston use the words "dirty Conservatives," "renegade Liberals," "hypocritical church people," and "cursed Englishmen?"       '  The questions that the property owners of Nelson are interested in just now  are not whether this or that man is  an expert horse trader or a political  acrobat, They are interested in ascertaining facts as to the city's present  financial status and - the -probabilities  for its future growth. The Tribune  contends that the city's financial standing is good, and that its future growth  largely depends on the carrying out of  a progressive policy. In carrying .out  a progressive policy, would it be wise  to sacrifice everything in order to gain  ono single industry? One single, industry will not materially increase Nelson's population; but several'industries  will. The question then is: How can  several industries be induced to locate here? One industry that may be  secured is the proposed lead refinery.  The main factor in securing that industry is the city's ability to supply three  things, that is, water, power, and light.  Free water, power, and light to a refinery company for five years would be  Two of the factors that are helping  to keep Nelson to the front today are  the Hall Mines smelter and the C. P. R.  Both have been granted concessions by  tlie city. The one is given all tho water  it needs for a small sum annually.  The other is given both water and light  at much lower rates than the same are  supplied lo it anywhere else in the  province, ilow long would the citv  be able to make such concessions were  it dependent on the West Kootenay  Power & Light Company for either  power or light?  By voting 150,000 to be spent in the  election of a' power plant on Kootenay  river and installing an up-to-date  street lighting system in the city, thc  city of Nelson would be in dobt $425,-  000, of which $400,000 would represent  wator works, electric light works, and  a sewer system, all of which earn revenue. What other city in Canada could  make so good a showing for its indebtedness? The interest and sinking  fund charges on the total indebtedness  would be ?3S,250 annually, or just about  what would be earned by the electric  iight, system alone. But if the interest and sinking fund charges are to be  met by direct taxation on real estate,  the rate levied based on the present assessment roil would be in the neighborhood of 25 mills, or an increase of 10  mills over the present late. The question for the consideration of the property owners is: Would the increased  rate be a burden not justified by any  resulting benefits accruing to the city  through its being placed in an independent position for taking care of all the  electric lighting and power business  offering? The increased rate would be  no great burden if the outlay of $150,-  000 for the purpose indicated only resulted in maintaining present real estate values (and it is admitted something must be done, and done quickly,  loo, to hold real estatei values at present prices), but if the proposed outlay  resulted' in' increasing reai estate val-.  ues 10 per cent', property owners would  be largely .the gainers'/,"If prices were  increased 25 per cent, property owners  would be" making money much more  rapidly than they could through any  other legitimate investment  equal to,a cashnxmus ot^lOiffiOOT^lt  cash bonus of $100,000 at this time  would cripple the city so that it would  hardly be in a position to help either  itself or anyone else. On the other hand,  were the city to place itself in a position to be able to supply water, power,  and light to aid industries, it would be  independent. It would not only be able  to care for its own utilities that; are  earning revenue, but it would be able  to help industries that could help it.  In tho opinion of The Tribune, this can  best be done by installing a power  plant on Kootenay river. Surely tho  question is of sufficient importance to  be considered on its merits, entirely  free from the interference of outside  corporations.  When an outside corporation, like the  West Kootenay Power & Light Company, thrusts itself into the local concerns of a municipality, property owners should-at once begin to ask themselves questions. One question to be  asked is: "What concern is it of the  West Kootenay Power & Light Company's as to how the.city, of Nelson shall  manage Its affairs?" That company  does not own a dollar's worth of property In Nelson, and .does not pay che  city a dollar in revenue.. If it has no  property Interests in Nelson and contributes no revenue towards the city's  support, then its interference must be  for a selfish purpose. It must want to  benefit itself, and to benefit the West  Kootenay Power & Light Company at  this stage of Nelson's career is not  likely to result in any great benefit tb  the city. The one is striving to secure  a monopoly of the water power in  l.Cootenay river for the benefit of its  shareholders. The other is striving to  maintain a monopoly of the electric  lighting business within its own corporate limits for the sole benefit of the  jjco-p]***! #f jielsoo, everyone ot whom j  How can Frank Fletcher reconcile his  declarations made in January last with  his declarations made today. Then he  believed the /electric lighting business  was a profitable one for the city, and he  expressed himself as eager to make the  electric'. light plant adequate in every  respect for the requirements of a growing and ambitious city. Now he says  the electric - lighting business is not a  profitable one, and that the city would  be foolish to spend a dollar in order to  make the plant up-to-date and adequate  for all possible requirements. Was he  sincere in January? If he was, he is not  sincere now. If he was misinformed in  January, why does he not tell the people so. The people do not like a" business manager who is not sincere any  more than one who is not posted as to  the status of their business.  Danver's Experiment in Consumption.  Enterprising physicians and . citizens  ^f^Denverr'GolbradoT^have^undertakeh  an experiment of world-interest. . They  have formed a, colony of consumptives  on a ten-acre tract of land five * miles  from their city for the purpose of thoroughly testing what Is known as "the  open-air cure." The colonists are all in  the early stages of the disease. They are  compelled by the rules to live outdoors  day and night, summer and winter-  They are provided with warm clothing,  blankets and roomy tents, warmed by  small stoves. All the work of the colony  is done by its members. No profits are  to be made by the, enterprise. It is running on the co-operative basis, assisted  by contributions of benevolent persons  all over the country who take an inter-,  est in seeing the continuous-out-of-doors  theory for tho cure for consumption  scientifically tried and, if it can be,  proved. In several states, Massachusetts' particularly, the open-air-sanitarium idea has been more or less tested,  and good results, are claimed for it.  Denver's colony, as its promoters expect, will become large enough to furnish conclusive proof of its value.  Misleading Maxims.  .  Perhaps no maxims are so misleading-to., the-judgment of those who implicitly believe them as those which  assert what is absolutely true actually  and very oftem false metaphorically.  For Instance: "Where there's smoke  there's fire". and "Straws show which  way the wind blows." If by smoke we  ��� understand scandal and gossip, then  there is,often a good deal of very nasty  smoke and no fire at all. Neither, metaphorically speaking, do straws show  which' way the wind blows, for such are  the cross-currents of character that  you can seldom judge of its general  trend by a trivial action. A man may  save a penny and yet not be mean, or  throw away a pound without, being  generous, or even habitually extravagant.  Take, for instance, the common Yorkshire saying, "When in doubt do  nought." How very seldom the principle therein contained can be applied  with advantage. How many weak wills.  we should like to know, has this pestilential little proverb contrihuted to psa-  ���_____0*j  *<��>' ?Sfr�� ^^��� **^v2i.��� ^*k���*^��� '"���k  00 . 00 .00 . 000   000.00 .00 .00 . 030 .fSt . 0& .0g&  * ^^ *^k_ ��� >��, ���'Vfe. ���  0S0'. 00'. 00*  <S��0r Vter Gfts*'  m  to  m  to  to  to  to  to  to  ON THUHSDAY OF  THIS WEEK WE WILL  SEEL THE BALANCE  OF 0UB STOCK OF  to  toto  to  �����*>  to  to  ^���'^'<2'*(0*'00*ie''00'���*_'00' 02!f:'0* ��� <SSZ-'00' 0" '00' 00 '00 ��� 0*' -ZW  * ^ -J2ft02��.

NEW YORK, December 6.���A new  bible authorized by the late general  convention in San Francisco, to be.read  In all Episcopal churches in the United  States, has been in process of completion by the committee oh marginal  readings, which has sat at the Episcopal  general seminary in this city since,'last  Tuesday and will conclude its work tomorrow, says' the Times. ��� It .was stated  that an English firm has promised to  undertake the publication of this bible  without expense to' the committee.

My flrst visit was  paid fourteen years ago, in 1S87. Since  that day, what changes, what fairylike  transformations! It is like phantasmagoria. In 1SS7 the population of  America was sixty millions; now it is  over seventy.- ln fifty years' time it. will  be two hundred millions. Yea, the land  of thc colossal, tho land of intelligence,  the land of light. In Europe they will  no longer receive tlie light from the  Bast; they will have it from the West.  As before, I Unci all the Americans  ^.at the wheel, almost recovered from a  tragedy that shocked tne world and obtained for them the deepest sympathy  of the most, exalted in the land, as well  as the lowest. But America cannot stop  for the insane crime of a lunatic; she  has her mission to fulfill; forward���she  must go on. Rich and poor, young and  old���yes, all, with the exception p'erhaps  of a few Anglo-maniacs whom the Old  World call gentlemen and tho Now One  loafers.  On my first visit thc Americans had  all built monumental blocks of fifteen  and sixteen stories; today I find some iu  New York with thirty and thirty-two.  If they go a little higher up still the  Americans will havo only a step to walk  into the sojourn of the Seraphim.' For  that matter all things aro explained.  New York is built on a narrow island  having the shape of a tongue from south  to north. It is impossible to get extension toward the east or west, so in  the business quarters, they spread in  the only region of space which is disengaged���that is, toward the firmament.  Of course I cannot say that America  interests me now as much as it did formerly. The novelty has worn off a bit.  I am beginning to see things American  with eyes almost American, instead of  seeing them with those of the "intelligent foreigner." I no longer want to  he guided, and I no longer, run the risk  of heing guyed.  During my first visits I received light  impressions," which amused me and interested me, and which also seemed to  entertain the Americans who were kind  enough to allow me to communicate  them to them. Today I have opinions,  and a fairly good knowledge of the country; and the opinions of a foreigner on  the nation he visits have much less  value than those of the natives. Impressions and opinions arc very different things. The impression of a fair-  minded and fairly intelligent foreigner  are always interesting, and' the fresher  they are the more piquant they read.  . When, fourteen years ago, I was beholding men walking in Broadway,  frowning, careworn, tired looking, 1 remember that I exclaimed: "Poor devils, they are on a round of calls on  friends who live at 538 East 125th street;  S92 West 13Sth street, and, maybe,  2354 West 162nd street. By George, so  -would, I look frowning and careworn if  I had to remember all these combina--  tions of figures!"  That was an impression. Now, when  I look at the same men, I say to myself: "So many men who do not know  whether they will he ruined or will be  millionaires  today at four  o'clock."  And by the side of all those preoccupied faces I see pass, as before, cheerful,  smiling, smart women, regular Paris-  iennes in gait and elegance, wearing all  tho latest fashions of beautiful Paris,  handsome, well-made, supple, with eyes  dazzling with intelligence, beautifully  corseted, gloved and shod, the whole  crowned wilh magnific'icnt hatu, proudly  planted on thc top of the most beautiful  heads in tho world.  Was it not the other day that Andrew  Carnegie gave ton millions to found  scholarships in the four universities of  Scotland? This great American millionaire philanthropist's hobby is to be  found in free libraries. He establishes  them everywhere, in America and especially in his dear native land of Scotland.  "I have two hundred and fifty millions yet to distribute before my death,"  he said .only the other day. He evidently intends to start the next world  as he started this one���with little or  nothing.      .  The word millionaire, of course,  cannot now convey an exact idea of the  fortune of American plutocrats. We  must invent a word and say billionaire.  The Oil King of America' possesses as  much money as would have paid the'  war indemnity imposed on France hy  Germany in 1870, and probably more.  The papers announce the amalgamation of two great railroad lines. In  future the '"new company will control  over 10,000 miles. The financier who  brought about this amalgamation is a  man who could buy, n* they were on  sale, the Louvre museum and the Arc  de Trlomphe.  And how do these .billionaires live?  Well, every one in this world lives according to his own fancy. Some lead  p. life that might be pnvied by the European sovereigns.. Others prefer living  like little bourgeois retired from business. Some have trains and steamers  of their own; others take the street  car. Some pay their cooks ten thousand dollars a year; others eat a chop  for luncheon.

On the 1st of this Noveniber the Paris  Figaro published'an article of mine "entitled "A New Education to Start."  Three days ago I received a Butte (Montana) paper of the next clay, the 2nd of  November, containing an editorial of a  whole column on the-Figaro article.  Ex uno disce omnes.  From such an insignficant thing as an  article of mine judge what American  journalism can do in the presence of  great events. I have heard of cables  costing tens of thousands of dollars.

But this, if  necessary, they will manufacture as  easily as cobwebs are manufactured for  wino merchants and hotel keepers.  of  o^.__st-a_:d_a_  No Chance of a Visitor From Mars.  Unless you have a longer than ordinary lease of life there is little hope  that you will live to shake hands with  a visitor from Mars.  Thc fascinating possibility of communication with this much-talked of  planet has been given a solar plexus  blow by the eminent astronomer, sir  Robert Ball, now lecturing in this  country.  Tlie likelihood of signalling to Mars  ha.s been so often discussed and intertwined with so much of a network of romance and speculation that sir Robert  Ball's plain statement that it is an impossibility is causing a popular sensation.  ' It is his array of figures that makes  sir Robert's statements impressive.  Mars, ho points out, is one hundred and  fifty times as far away as the moon,  and it is difficult enough to get accurate information about the surface of  the moon. Any building on earth  would have to be at least one hundred  and fifty times as long and as broad as  it is before an inhabitant of Mars, with  as powerful as telescope as we have on  -earth today, might happen to see it  evon if he were looking in this direction  ond thc atmosphere was unusually  clear.  Using tho modern methods of military signalling with flags, it would require a fiag( at least 300 miles long, 20C  miles wide, 'attached to a pole 500 miles  long, to be waved to and fro hefore an  inhabitant of Mars looking through his  spyglass would be impressed with thr  idea that there was anything unusual  going on. Or, if the imagination could  conceive of Lake Superior filled with  petroleum and set on fire, the great  blaze might appear as a'speck of light  to an inhabitant of Mars who happened  to see it.  By the Marconi wireless telegraphy  system, capable of sending a flash of  light seven times around this earth in  a ' second of timo, it might be  possible to get a message to the  moon if the electric force would  -carry-in-about-four-seconds and-to-Mars  in about eight minutes; but there are  stars visible every night through the  telescope so remote that even if a Marconi message had boen sent to them at  the moment of the crucifixion the news  would not have reached there yet. There  are other stars visible to the naked cy**-  lhat could not yet havo received the  news of the battle of Waterloo if the  message had been sent by Marconi at  thc timo tho engagement began.  Tho so-called "canals" on Mars, discredited as such of late years, are, according to sir Robert, canals aftor all.  He says that thoy arc not the work of  nature, because nature does not work on  straight lines. These canals with the assured existence of arctic and tropical  regions, sir Robert said, are indications that human life is existent on  Mars. No permanent water and no river  can be discerned on Mars. What astronomers sec aro straight lines, or rather  linos falling in circles around thc  ���?lobo. These are undoubtedly canals In  a great state of development. It is not  known that these canals carried off the  ice and snow that melted during the  summer season, but it is a fact that the  observation of the canals is clearer at  the season of tbe year when it may he  assumed that the snow and ice are melting.

They have   ranged   in   size   from   the  length of a giant boa-constrictor to the  one described in the fo'castle song:  From the tip of his nose to the tip of his  tail  It's just nine thousand mile.  Scientific men have made due allowance for the vivid imaginations of seafaring men and have recognized that  behind these tales there was a solid  truth���a survival of those ancient monsters which peopled the sea when man  was still a tailed arborean, speaking the  language which professor Garner makes  a living and a stir by trying to recover.  It is not strange tliat none of these  monsters has ever been captured. The  sea is so vast both in surface and in  depth. When they die they, go to the  bottom or are soon torn to pieces by  other fish and sea birds. They avoid tho  haunts of man. It may be that, some of  . the more formidable ones have now and  then met and attacked a small ship. If  so, perhaps they destroyed the last  witness of a combat so hideous that no  imagination of possible horrors of the  mysterious sea could conceive it.  Origin of Beneficent Institution.  One afternoon last year a Parisian  lady saw a servant girl dissolved in  tears seated on her knees. Inquiries'" elicited the naive confession that she had  been spending the previous hour in  fruitless eiforts tb arrange the infant's  attire, and after hopelessly struggling  with thc mysteries of swaddling clothes  had given up the attempt. How was  she to face the mother, her mistress,  with the child- in this undressed state?  Despair at the thought had'driven her  to tears, Between the_sobs she explained  that she had that morning accepted an  nivitation as nursery maid without ever  having held a baby in her arms before.  The kind hearted lady dressed the hapless infant and determined there and  then to start a school for servant girls.  The institution is now a flourishing concern, and the lady who founded it has  had the satisfaction of turning out several hundred domestic servants, fully  equipped for the efficient discharge of  their duties iu various-branches.

Henry N. Neligan, third officer of the  'steamship Irada and an official observer  of marine events for the hydrographic  office, makes the following official report:  October 26th, 1901.���At 11 a. m*. today,  in latitude 27 degrees 26 minutes north,  and longitude 90 degrees 18 minutes  west, passed a large sea serpent appearing about 100 feet long. The head was  blunt, square nose and was ejecting  water to the height of two or theree feet  from its nostrils. The animal or fish  had three distinct sets of fins and a tail  lying across like a porpoise. On its  back was a series of humps like a  camel. It was heaumg about east  (true) and moving slowly.  This seems to settle it���if there was  any doubt about it. Since the dawn of  history, since that first mariner whom  Horace sail-must have had a heart  thrice bound round with triple brass to  mBWspa^er proprietors yrho from Jffew i /dare to adventure the unknown sea.  CuttiDg Military Red Tape,  An army officer just back from the  Philippines tells the following story  of a callow young officer whose mistakes are a source of amusement to his  comrades: Early in his military experience the lieutenant was -awakened by  a sentry at night, who passed by his  tent calling out the hour and vouchsafing the information,' "All's well."  The youth turned over and settled down  to another nap, but the next hour he  was awakened by the unwelcome call.  When this had been repeated' for tho  third time he decided to endure it no  longer; and going to the door of his  tent called out: "Look here, my good  man, it's very kind of you to tell me  the time, but 1 have a watch here hy  iny bed, so please spare yourself fur-  _ Iher���trouble."   the reports of a serious quarrel, between queen Wilhelmina .and her husband, prince Henry of the Netherlands.  The Temps' vouches for the correspondent as from a contributor-who has the  reputation of sending accurate information. The correspondent says the  malicious rumors in regard to the  queen and prince Henry are fabrications  of cheap society papers in Holland.  He adds: "It is a most happy -thing  that there is no domestic strife, the  queen loves her husband and harmony  has always  prevailed."  LONDON;, December 6.���A dispatch  to the Evening News from The Hague  published today says" peace reigns at  the palace, and the happiest man in  Holland is major Van Tots who was  wounded in defense of the queen by  prince Henry, or as all the Dutchmen  now contemptuously call him, "the  German."

MANILA, December 5. ��� General  Chaffee has issued orders for the closing of all ports in the Batangas and  Laguan provinces, The quartermasters  there will cease paying rent to the Filipinos for buildings used for military  purposes, as it is found that a large  portion of the money so paid finds its  way to the insurgents in the way of  contributions, and general Chaffee intends that no more government money  shall lind Its way into the hands of the  enemy. The reason for closing the ports  is that too many supplies arc found to  bo getting into the possession of thc  insurgents. General Chaffee intends  giving general Ball, commanding tho  troops in Batangas, every assistance  ho may require to subdue the insurgents.  Governor Taft is improving rapidly and  expects to return to the United States  in the government transport Grant,  whicli sails  before Christmas.  Getting .Rather Monotonous.

The same  pay streak has been opened up above the  tunnel level for a height of 91 feet. Had  the Evans syndicate struck the ore they  would probably have been working the  property yet, and they missed it by a  few shots.  In the case of Marino vs. Alexander  Sproat and Mclnnis, the examination  of Sproat and Angus Mclnnis will take  place today before the registrar upon  their affidavits with respect to the finding of certain power of attorney signed  by Marino in which certain powers  were conferred by him to the defendant  Sproat. This power of attorney is said  to have an important bearing upon the  case and the examination of the defendant Sproat and of Angus Mclnnis upon  it was ordered by the full court. This  document was lost at the trial of the  action, but it is said tliat it has been  subsequently discovered in an outhouse  in New Denver.  Captain Gifford of the Silver King  mine was in-Nelson yesterday. He says  the monetary loss of the company as  the result of the recent fire will approximate $20,000, of which amount $13,000  is covered by insurance This, however,  does not cover the inmrect loss of the  company consequent upon the interruption to operations" at the mine and  smelter. The work of preparing temporary quarter's - is being rushed as  quickly as possible and by Sunday captain Gifford figures that he will be in  shape to .work at least 75 men. This  will be only half of the force employed  at the. mine, before the fire. The work  of rebuilding the large boarding and'  bunk house, destroyed by fire will not  be started before spring.   ���]tS,S'g*^'fc,A,^,S,^:^,^,-^'^,^,^,','i***'*'''^,^t'^^ -  .^tt*'^.^^r^^'^^^l>i^Wg**^ttl*^^'^^^W>'^P^Bijg_->^^^^W��^WK<*^fc��*MM<*'M����**��fc<*(Ba-----_ <MM 00^m >^_-_--^*���C -���_-_-_l ���_-_-_-_- ______g .^^g _^eaZ _____g ____���_�� jmg ___ri _0U_^A jKjflr-'lD'W * L  ���^���^���00-i~^-<*'00-^-00^V^-00-^'^'^.^.0B'^'^'03'tS^  J.

The miners' union at Moyie will give  their second annual ball and supper on  Thursday night next. It is the one annual function of Moyie that'draws people from the outside, and this year the  committee' having charge of the arrangements are trying to make it the  finest ever given in East Kootenay.  At the Methodist church tomorrow  the pastor will have charge of both  services and in the evening will conduct a question drawn on practical  Christianity. Any. serious question  reaching him not. later than the close  of the morning service will. receive a  courteous reply.  ���W��� P.���Robinson���who-for-some-time  filled the office of sheriff of South Kootenay, is lying at the point of death at  his residence in this city. Walter J.

Nelson.  Through the ��� carelessness of someone,  mail intended for the jinterprise mine  and mill is put in the New Denver sack.  When this happens, the mail is sent back  to Nelson,, which occasions a delay of  two or three-days. , Papers addressed  to Creston- never arrive regularly, subscribers frequently getting only two  copies.of- the 'daily edition of The Tribune during a- week.-' The Tribune is  aware that - it, is. -useless to rmake complaints, for ;the local postmasters seem  to be- powerless to: make -changes that  will remedy the irregularities complained of. <       - ������*.������ -     ��� -      -  Robert J.

Speaking'of the expenditure of public "money in the Goat  River division, Mr. ^Long 'Says the division i has been very, rliberally treated,  and that there'is-.little complaint Quite  a number of settlers, came'in this summer and bought _ landw'near ��� Creston.  These people. complain -that the; lands  and works department were a trifle slow  in starting a road.1 so that they could  get in supplies, an*d:that when the work  was commenced thetforce employed was"  too small to be effective.,. On the west  side of Kootenay river there has been a  good deal of prospecting, notably on  Summit creek. Were a trail built from  the mouth of t.he creek to the-Reclamation Farm, it .would be a great-convenience to prospectors, and * the ' expense  would be comparatively. small. - Speaking-of redistribution, Mr. Long says the  people of Creston.prefer to.be attached  to the same riding as-Nelson, simply -  because they do all tlieir trading here  and they know that they would get a  square deal when it came to disbursements for public works.  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  tfv  **��.
