Array '���V  iw  K'fi  ESTABLISH  ARE NOT AFBAIB  SATURDAY  MORNING,  DECEMBER 28   1901  VENEZUELA. CAN DO WITHOUT CORN.  THE INTERIOR WOULD BE DIFFICULT OF INVASION BY  THE GERMANS.  "WASHINGTON, December 27;���The gathering of German  warships  In the vicinity  of   Venezuela,   and   the   presence   in   the  same locality oC many American,  British,  French, and other foreign warships, is directing attention to the imminence of the  naval  demonstration Germany is about to  make   against   Venezuela.   Thus   far,   the  German government has not made known  the details of her proposed move, the official  communications  to  the United States  being* confined to an inquiry as to the attitude of this government on the question  of a demonstration, in view of the purpose  of Hie Germans not to acquire any permanent foothold in-Venezuela... The answer of  this government  was entirely satisfactory  to the German authorities, who since have  proceeded with the execution of their plans  ior   coercing   Venezuela.   It  is   said   to   oe  probable  tnat  the first move by Germany  will   uc   the'--'establishment'of  a   ulockado  of Venezuelan ports, as to prevent me introduction of food products into Venezuela,  and thus starve tne: besieged mtu suonus-  sion.   Venezuela,  it is saitl,  is entirely dependent on,the outsittc world for its supply  oi eu'rn, wnicii is a. staple among the Venezuelans. , The Germans are expected to occupy   one   or   more  of   Uie   mam   ports   of  Venezuela,   probably .'Lugjjiura  anu   Mara-  caibo. Un tlie part of Venezuela it is semi-  oilleialiy  understood  that president Castro  has  made known that he is  prepared for  any eventuality. . :  Tlie reliance of Venezuela appears to be  on tlie practical diitlculttes ijermiiii will  encounter. S'enezuela Herself, it is asserted,  has no need of outside supplies. While corn  is much used, in an emergency mere are  other cereals which can-be put to use.  With reference to "German occupation of  one or "more ports, it is. thought that Venezuela will rely, on harrasslng the invaders,  'fhe fresh-water supply ot, Lagtuara and  Maracaibo is drawn trom interior streams  and lakes, and these arc expected to bo  cut oil. The interior of Venezuela is regarded as safe and it is said that it would  take at* least 200,000 German soldiers to  make headway through the wild and uneven country against guerilla tactics. There-  appears, also, to be iiiiich reliance on tlio  part of Venezuela in the .sentiment and  sympathy wliiclr can bo aroused .in tlie  United States wlfen a European invader is  actually operating on American soil and  Venezuela issues a declaration of war.  Venezuela, it is understood, also relies  largely on the fact that foreign capital is  invested - in ' large Venezetilan ports and  would be -the heaviest sufferer from any  destruction wrought by the Germans.  The German minister to Venezuela is  still at his post and there is hope that he  may still bring about a. settlement. The  outlook for a cash settlement, however, is  rather meagre since the Venezuelan treasury is empty and all of the:Venezuelan oflicials are on half pay.  The presence of tlie-north Atlantic squadron and many other American warships  in "West Indian waters is the source of  much speculation in Germany and Venezuela.      commercial   competition.   The   paper  has consulted sir Thomas Sutherland and  Kenric 15. Murray, secretary of the London Chamber of Commerce, and others,  only to discover the greatest divergence  In the views of the persons questioned, to  whether any real necessity for "waking  up .England" existed.  Prince Edward Island Tragedy.  CHARLOTTETOWN. December 27.���Four  men. forced an entrance into Mrs. McAu-  lay's boarding-house at Annsdale on  Christmas night. The men refused to leave  until one of their number, Dennis Brown,  was shot dead by captain John Warren,  one of Mrs. MeAuley'j? boarders.  Attending Physician Is Hopeful.

VERY IMPORTANT DISCOVERY  Tamarac Bond Taken Up.  SLOGAN, December 27.���The bond'on tha  Tamarac group, Springer creek, has been  lifted and the deeds turned over to the  company and recorded. John *1��\ Holden,  the manager, came in from Spokane on  Friday and wound up the business with  the resident owners. The payment made  was 90 per cent, as one payment has been  previously made. The full bond called for  $1S,000, so that tho payment just made  _eaUed,for_considerablo_inoney._The_ owners,  of tho property were iioti Fielding, George  Henderson, and Neil Gething, while tne  purchasers are known as the Tamarac Mining & Development Syndicate of Spokane.  Ono small shipment has been made from  the Tamarac by the bonders. The returns  were 172 ounces silver and 17 per cent lead.  Four drifts have been opened up on the  vein and each ono Is showing oro. There  is sufficient in sight, more than enough to  pay the purchase price. Mr. Holden has  shut down the property until spring, when  a force of 20 mon will be put on. Tne company will also build a half mile of wagoiv,  road to connect the mine with the Sprig-  er creek .road, liy the lifting of the bond on  the Tamarac an Increased feeling of confidence has ben imparted  to  tho camp.  Had an Audience With, tlie King.  LONDON, December 27.���King Edward  received marquis Ito at Marlborough  House this afternoon. The Japanese statesman had previously called on foreign secretary lord Lansdowne, who accompanied  tlie marquis to Marlborough House and  Introduced htm to the king. The marquis  and his suite, all wearing court dress,  were driven to Marlborough Mouse in  royal carriages. King Ed.ward, when ho received the Japanese statesman, wore a  Held marshal's uniform. Marquis Ito, after  the audience, said the object of his visit  to London was strictly non-political. But,  in view of the belief hero of the probable  return of the marquis to olllce, some Importance is attached to his interviews witli  King Edward and lord Lansdowne.  Mining Swindler in Jail.  SOUTH FRAMING HAM, Massachusetts,  December 27.���The parents of William Cur-  .tis Wakefield, who is now iu East Cambridge jail, charged with defrauding residents of this and other places through certain mining enterprises of which he was  the promoter, when shown today's London  dispatch stating that "VV. Curtis Wakefield  of New York had leased Ditton Park near  Windsor for the coronation year," disclaimed all knowledge of the matter.  Wakefield's English valet, who had just  returned from a visit to Wakelield in jail,  also denounced tho story as a falsehood,  so far as it related to> his employer, and  professed his entire ignorance of any such  transaction.

LONDON, December 2G.��� As a Christmas  attraction fie Daily News has_ been attempting to obtain tho views on the prom-  inmit men on the best way of waking up  England, in the face of American and Ger-  Cholera and Typnoid Specific.  ANN ARBOR, Michigan, December  27.���Scientific men at the University of  Michigan are eagerly awaiting the detailed results of some remarkable experiments that have just been concluded  by professor Frederic G. Novy. He is  a foremost bacteriologist and" the professor of physiological chemistry and'  bacteriology at Michigan. If in actual  practice as good results can be obtained  as were secured in the laboratory, all  such diseases as Asiatic cholera, typhoid  lever, dysentery and other intestinal  troubles will be stricken from the list  of human ills. What is believed to be  an absolule intestinal 'antiseptic has  been produced by Dr. Novy, and in a  series of most rigorous experiments  upon five students it has served absolutely to destroy all bodily poisons.  Professor Novy was one of a commission, of three appointed by the .Un:-* ���  States government to go to California  last summer to make an investigation  of the bubonic plague, and to devise  some means to combat it. In his subsequent laboratory experiments with  plague germs upon guinea pigs, one of  his assistants caught the pest and created a panic among the students. Five  students offered themselves as subjects  upon whom tha experiments might be  made. After a week of constant analysis, during which the students got  nothing to eat and had only sterilized'  milk to drink, the announcement is  made unofficially that success attended  Uie trials.  "Benzozono," as the new preparation"*'  has been named, is believed to contain  properties which will nullify all such  diseases as cholera, typhoid fever, dysentery and the like that find their seat  in th.e intestines.  It is scarcely possible to comprehend  the greatness of this"��� disco very i if it is  proved as successful in actual practice  as it has in the chemical laboratory.  Professor Novy's discovery reaches  what the medical profession has generally believed to be unattainable.  An absolute intestinal antiseptic that  would destroy the animal organisms  producing the disease has long been  hoped for. Such, a preparation would  purge the body, of the source of disease  and so render tho person free from the  cause as well as from the effects.  In the thesis on this subject of absolute antiseptic. Dr. Dujardiu Beaumetz  said: "Man in the physiological state  r.ecessarily produces poisons more or  =less=vii'ulent*=and=tlie;Condition=of=health:  for him consists in the regular and rapid  elimination of these same poisons by  the action of the bodily organs. Let  something interrupt this regular action,  let these organs cease or become impaired in their functions, and disease  may result."  Dr. Novy's "benzozone" seems to do  what the healthy system does. It apparently prevents these bodily poisons  from developing disease. Professor  Novy declines to commit himself further than to say: "So far I have been  experimenting. Experimental results  are not to be spoken of by experimenters outside of scientific periodicals. I  have concluded my laboratory tests, but  do not wish to say what I hope tlieir  results to be."  The five students look worn and fagged, after their week of sterilized milk  diet. None of them are really the worse  for the trials, and so far as being Iff"'  to disease is concerned, they are pronounced to be practically immune, being  completely free from thie poisons that  usually are to be found in the body.  The methods pursued by'professor  Novy in his wieek of experimentation  were quite simple.  Three.times a day the students went  to the laboratory and first took a dose  of "benzozone." then thev downed th"*1-  portions of sterilized milk and once  more,mingled with their fellow-students.  Renented chemical analysis were made,  and the results were very flattering.  man to light Jeffries. Every inducement  will be offered Fitzsimmons to draw him  in another match. "Bob" Is the man the  public is anxious to have against the champion. I don't know whether he has retired  for good or not. If he does not want to  light again he has a perfect right to stay  out of the game. All he has to do Is to tell  me so, and we shall not trouble him further. I have made arrangements to hold  a sort of reception in New York Monday,  afternoon between the hours of 4 and C  o'clock. All the leading heavy-weights or  their representatives will be requested to  attend and make bids for a light with  Jeffries. I do not mean to play favorites,  and the man that gets up his forfeit money  for a match first will be Jeffries' next opponent. Madden will have to look elsewhere  for a match for Denver '���Ed" Martin.  While Jeffries does not draw the color line  strictly, yet he refuses to box a negro for  the championship. Whoever Jeffries may  be matched with, the contest will undoubtedly take place at 'Frisco, as it Is the only  locality where a big fight can be brought  off in absolute safety.  Investigating American Methods  BERLIN, December 27.���The German  government has decided to attach agricultural experts to the more important  .German"consulates. The first of these experts will be sent to the United States  where agricultural dvelopments. are now  being more carefully observed than - formerly. This action is understood to be one  of the results of the increasing use of  American machinery In Germany, and the  belief that the American system of farming on a large scale might be adapted to  the princely estates of Germany.  WINNER ON ENGLISH TRACKS  DAILY EDITION*  IN DON  KITCHENER IS THE STORM  CENTER AT PRESENT.  G. P. HILL BONDS MORE CLAIMS  TO THE MONTREAL  SYNDICATE  Attaches No Importance.  BUENOS "AYRES,. December 27.���Street  demonstrations yesterday evening, which  were suppressed by the police, gave rise  to certain rumors of a revolution, which  had no foundation, in fact. Certain streets  of Buenos Ayres are occupied tonight by  a force of policemen who will prevent further manifestations. Dr. Alcort, when questioned this evening by the correspondent  of the Associated Press on the incident  arising from the alleged changing of a  word in the protocol by the Chilian minister of foreign affairs, Senor Yanez, replied that ho attached no importance to  this matter, and that he believed everything between the two countries would be  arranged satisfactorily.  Wants.Someone to Meet Jeffries.  CHICAGO, Decembor -I.���Bill Delaney,  manager of champion Jeffries, arrived in'  the city bound for New York with the Intention of inducing the leading heavyweights to try their luck with Jeffries.  Delaney said: My visit to New York is  solely for the purpose of signing some good  American Trainer Heads List.  LONDON, December 27.���For the first  time since he became an owner of race  horses, in 1SS3, sir J. Blundell Maple comes  ��out at the head of the list of winning owners In England, with $107,063-to his credit.  Toward this amount Mackintosh, who won  four races of the net value of $15,325, was  tho chief contributor. Numerous horses  carried his colors, and no fewer than 24  gained winning brackets, carrying off 58  races between them. No event of very great  importance fell to his share, the most important being" the Sandringham foal plate  ($i>ii20,) won by The Bishop, at Sandown  park. Champagne and VIdame proved useful slaves, each winning six races, and  Petridge did well with five successes.  Second on the list comes W. C. Whitney,  whosfe 3S winners realized $100,863. Mr.  Whitney was unlucky at not being at the  head of the list, for there is little doubt  but that Volodyovski should have added  the St. Leger to his victories. As it was  "Voly" contributed $36,900 towards the sum  total.  Numerically, sir J. Blundell Maple and  W. C. Whitney are followed by two American owners, viz, Richard Croker and Frank  Gardner, who have won 35 and 25 races respectively. They have, however, confined  their attentions to minor events, and therefore take no very prominent place In* the  list of winners. Nearly 500 owners have  been successful during: the season. -.  "After-iinishing fourth -in'1898 and-second  In 1899 and 1900, J. Huggins, the American  trainer, now comes out at the head of the  list wilh 16 winners, who have between  them won forty-two races, of the value  of $145,710. He has not had so many horses  in training as several other trainers, and  therefore the more merit attaches to the  position he has gained. Volodyovski was,  of course, his chief winner, but.Watershed,  Abeyance filly,- Game Chick, Kilmarnock  II, Holsteln; and Elizabeth M. have all  done good service.  C P. B 'Makes Large Land Sales.  WINNIPEG, December 27.���The Tribune  says tonight: "The C. P. R. land sales during the past year have been unprecedented  in their volume. The employees of the land  department are how busy with their annual statements. In an Interview today F.  T. Griflln, the land commissioner, when  questioned as) to the sales said. 'We estimate that the sales for 1901 will be about  81,000 acres for, the sum of $2,750,000. The  Canada & Northwest Lanij Company's  sales have also been exceptionally large.  The annual statement will show that this  company has sold in the neighborhood of  105,000 acres of^land for the sum of $585,-  -000;'*-Mr.���Griffin-said-the-past-year-Was-a-  record one In the matter of land sales,  and these sales had been nearly all to  farmers or intending farmers."  Given Decision on a Foul.  OMAHA, Nebraska, December 27.���Eddie  Santyre of Chicago was given the decision  over Ole Olson of Chicago on a foul ln the  second round of what was to have been a  20-round contest. The fighting was fast  and furious while It lasted, with honors  even. After two minutes of the second  round the men came together with a series  of punches, both landing blows at the same  time. Santyre slipped to the lloor and was  just getting to his knees when Olson landed  a terrific left to the jaw, from which it  took Santyre several minutes to recover.  Olson admitted losing his head.  Montreal Wins From New York.  NEW YORK, December 27.���One of the  livliest hockey games of the season was  played tonight ln this city between the  Victorias of Montreal and the St. Nicholas  hockey teams. It resulted in a victory for  tlie Montreal team. The home players made  a plucky fight but went to pieces shortly  after the start. 'The Canadians had everything their own way thereafter and won by  a score of 8 to 3.  MONTREAL,���*:. December 27.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���It Is reported here  that the Canadian Pacific railway syndicate, which last summer secured the,  group of iron properties near Kitchener,  has secured another group of prospects  in the same neighborhood.    C. P. Hill,  who negotiated the first   deal   is   also  said to have brought the second one to  a. successful termination.   The last deal  includes the purchase outright of four  claims, known as the Creston, Oray, X-  Ray and X-Ray Fractional, the consideration being given as $25,000 cash.   The  syndicate has also taken a bond upon  the  balance of Hill's mineral  claims,  and-if the bond is taken up the total  payments will   amount.to   ?75,000. Although Hill has figured alone in the negotiations it is understood that there  are a number of others interested with  him in the deal.   This'last deal has an  importance aside from the amount of  money involved, as it furnishes the best  of evidence that the Montreal men already interested in the Kitchener iron  ledges are satisfied with the results they  have attained during the past_ summer,  and as they are credited with having-  plenty of money, the district may rest  assured that its resources will be fully  exploited during the ensuing summer.  pod It to New York,- are probably the victims, occurred sometime between Sunday  afternoon and this afternoon. The jewelrv  was dispatched from here to Joseph Fran-  Kcl & Sons, New York. When delivered  there was no evidence that the seal had  been tampered with and the package was  not opened in New York until today, when  the chain was found missing.

It is reasonable to believe that  should the price of copper go back to 12  cenU> the prices of other things," including labor, would also decline sufficiently  to enable all of the companies above  named to cut l,cent per pound oft: their  mining costs.  fit is a mistake to suppose that the  present low prices of copper mining  stocks accurately represent the condition of the' copper industry, or the  profits the various mines will he able  to earn for their owners on 15-cent copper. The decline is the result of unnatural speculative conditions, brought  about by mercenary stock jobbers, who  have succeeded in a scheme of wholesale plunder because they have been able  to wholly destroy public confidence.

BOSTON    December    27.���The    best  posted copper  people  here,   both   producers and consumers, say that the recent cut in the price of copper can have  no other effect on the general situation  than to intensify the prevailing distrust.  Sales of the metal are practically sure  to decrease as a result of the cut, and  it wm in no way uiwinisn tne proutio-  uon.   it is generally oeneveu, tneretore,  tnat tne reuuccion in tne price or. uie  metal was lor the same purpose as tut  cut in the Amalgamated dividend, and  the following bear raid in tnat stock  lor the purpose of driving the public  out of their Holdings in a number of the  best companies, and making it possibiu  for the Amalgamated crowd to get possession   of   stocks   at   bargain   prices.  There is no mine in the world that is  producing any considerable amount ot  copper that will shut down or have, its  profits taken away by tne cut of 1 1-i.  cents per pound in prices.   The average,  price of making copper in the United  States is not over 11 cents per pound.  This,  of course, means the mines that  produce in volume and   that' at  some  time' under some conditions have' made;  copper at a profit.  There are only two copper mining  companies in this country paying dividends now that were not paying them  before the price of copper rose above  .12 cents three years ago. Tne mines  that have entered the dividend-paying  list in the period mentioned owe their  advancement to the natural course of  .'development rather than to the advance  in the price of cdpper. It is impossible  to interest capital in the development  of a mine that does not promise to make  copper at as low a cost as 12 cents'; and  the many mining properties that are  now in the public mind that never can  make copper at as low a cost as thi?  were really put on'-'the market for flotation profits, their promoters, in the majority of instances, never dreaming that  they would be able to make copper at a  profit even though it sold at 25 or 50  =cents=por=poundr  No Numbers Used.  SAN FRANCISCO, December 27.���The  new Chinese telephone exchange is open  and ready for business, after months ot  preparation,- says the San Francisco  Chronicle.

Tea and tobacco are always served to  visitors, a complement of hospitality  without which no Chinese business  transaction is complete. '���   .  Before going into the telophono room  itself a brief inspection of the rooms in  the rear of the reception room is not  without interest. In the extreme rear  is a kitchen, small but neat and "complete. Tliere is an equally diminutive  dining room, and likewise a bedroom, in  which are. four small bunks. This is  where Loo Kum Shu, the manager of  the exchange, lives with his assistants.  They- arc. always, on duty- and the exchange is never closed from one year's  end to the other.  The front room, in which is placed  the switchboard, is the most attractive  feature of the place. It is gayly decorated with dragons and serpents; there  are rare lanterns hanging from tlie ceil-  -ing, in which electric lights have been  placed, making a contrast of modernity and .antiquity.  The work of the exchange would drive  an American operator insane, for, in addition to the 255 numbers on the exchange, there arc at least 125 telephones  which are either in Chinese lodging  houses or in clubs.

The two referred to  are Butte & Boston, which has paid a  total of only ?1,U00,000 since its organization, and has paid all of this in the  past two years; and lhe other is the  Utah Consolidated, which came to the  dividend stage of development within  a year, its smelter having been in operation barely two years.  The figures opposite the names of the  copper mining companies given below  denote the approximate cost per pound  at which they mako copper. They refer to normal conditions, when the companies are not making more than the  average annual improvements and extensions:  Atlantic (Michigan)   12  Anaconda (Montana)   11  Arizona Copper Co. (Arizona)  U  Boston & Montana (Montana)  7  Butte & Boston (Montana) 13  Calumet & Hecla  (Michigan)  U  Copper Queen (Arizona)     8  Detroit Copper Co.  (Arizona) 10  Mountain Copper Co.

United Verde (Arizona)  4  Utah Consolidated (Utah)   ,. 3  Wolverine   (Michigan)      !)  Nearly half of the copper produced  in this country comes from the Hurt-  mountain, and costs an average of more  than 10 cents���probabiy 11 cents during  the present year. The extremely low  costs mintained by the Utah and Unit-  Verde is due to the high values of gold  and silver found in the ores going a long  way toward paying operating expenses.  These two mines together produce only  about half as much as the Anaconda or  the Calumet & Hecla.  When the ruling price of copper was  11 and 12 cents, the prices of other  commodities were lower, and labor was  contented with smaller wages. Iron and  steel for instance, wliich are consumed  very heavily by copper-producing companies, wore much low.er in price, as was  also coal. Coke is about tho only article of importance to copper producers  that has not declined in price.

Fatal Train Wreck  SCRANTON, Pennsylvania, Decern ber  27.���Just before daybreak this morning  an Ontario & Western train of 50 coal  cars drawn by a 100-ton engine ran away  on the hill between Boston Park and  Starling, wrecking the whole train and  killing four of the hands. The killed  are: Melvin Whitling, engineer;  Charles Millard, fireman; Richard Budd,  head brakeman; Patrick Dully, rear  brakeman. All lived at Carbondale.  Conductor Wrenn Smith and flagman  Walsh, who were on the caboose, jump-  fed with slight injuries. It is estimated  the train was running 90 miles an hour  when the wreck occurred. The terrific  speed caused a flange of one of the engine drivers to break rounding a curve,  and in a few seconds the engine was in  an adjoining field on its side with a half  a hundred broken gondolas and Ihr  tons of coal piled around it. The big  engine ^served as a wall on which the  cars rammed themselves to pieces. T'  body of the engineer is still in the  wreckage.  An Old Fool.  PORT HURON, Michigan, December  27.���Maggie Madwick, who is in jail  here awaiting trial on a serious charge,  received a letter today from her husband, Elias Madwick, of Watford, Ontario, whom she deserted some time ago,  stating that he had just received a letter  from his brother in England, stating  that he had fallen heir to ?50.000. He  begs her to return to him and go to  England with him to claim the amount.  He did not know of her arrest, and  wrote a letter to the chief of police  asking him to find his wife and telling  of the fortune which came to him. Tho  police will probably release the woman,  ���providing she goes direct to her huj*;-  A special from Nanaimo to the Vancouver Province says: "Two highly indignant  delegates returned to the the Extension  Miners' Union and told the assembled  members how grievously the Hon. James  Dunsmuir had treated them when by tha  instructions of the union they had gone  to ask that the Extension men be paid  at Extension and not compelled to go to  Ladysmith for their money. They had approached Mr. Dunsmuir, they said, and.  as soon as they opened their mouths about  being a committee from the union, ho  roared jj^J.,_^l^_hr-ijyvUh^JJ}e._union,_toi=h;-_  "-with-the-Cffm*m1t"tedr"to h��� with the men."  "Somehow this struck the meeting, which,  knew Mr. Dunsmuir, as being so strong a  touch of nature that they laughed heartily,  ln vain the delegates endeavored to get  them to take a serious view of the matter.  In vain thy told how Mr. Dunsmuir had.referred to one of them, secretary Sheppard,  as a "second Ralph Smith, who lived without working." The description of their  royal chief's rage was loo much for them,  and they howled again.  "Clearly, however, something must bo  done about the matter, and when they had  settled down the ominous word "strike"  was heard. Men were there who had been  In unions where a thousand men had laid  down their tools simply because the operator had refused to treat with a committee. Others, however, remembered that It  was winter and that tliey had families,  also that the last big strike against James  Dunsmuir had lasted nearly two years,  and thai the stubborn master was not tho  loser.  "Then someone, a humorist probably,  suggested that Mr. Dunsmuir be asked to  ajKillglze. By this lime one of the delegates  had had enough ot that way of treating tho  difficulty, and he proposed that the union  he disbanded. Ills brother delegate told  the members what he thought of them,  severally and collectively, but being of tho  opinion that they might make a real union  .some day, advised that the outward form  be preserved. The chairman ruled the motion out of order and the matter dropped.  Then the members transacted routine business, confirmed once more the amalgauja-  tion with Nanaimo, the only rock possessed  by organized labor in the district, and went  home.  "Tho Extension men will continue to  travel twelve miles to Ladysmith every  pay-day, wait eight hours for a return  train, and return home with that portion  of their earnings which has not gone to  enrich th keepers of the half dozen saloons down there."

It is barely five years since they applied that name opprobiously to Bryan and  the horde of Populists who clamored for  state control of the national highways.  But certainly no group of radical politicians could have done in the same period  as much to convert the public to their wav  of'thinking a.s the Morgans and Jlills and  their co-workers have done in the last  twelve months.  Vice-president Paul Morgan of the Santa  Fe railroad, predicts that one ot three  things must happen within the next few  yeiiirs: The legalization of pooling, bv  which competing lines shall be permitted  to agree upon a division of trafiic, a.s many  of them now do by secret contracts in defiance'of .the'law;-the*'unification of ownership, which is already well under wav; or  acquisition and operation of the railroads  by the government. If Mr. Morgan were lo  speak his whole mind he would probablv  confess that it is because tho railroad mug-  nates have shown their abilitv to evade the  anti-pooling laws and to absorb the ownership and control of lines which have hare-  tofore been operated .separately that public opinion is fast coming to regard state  ownership as an alternative. It it comes to  government ownership of transportation  facilities, it will not because tho .mass of  the American people favor in thoir hearts  the suppression of individual enterprise,  but because no other effective way has  been presented to check the growth of a  private monopoly which menaces thc public welfare.  ���.*H~M"l-I.  ��H"H"I"!"W"I-I-H-*��  According to the Miner, the West  Kootenay Power & Light Company,  Limited, of Rossland does not intend to  allow the Nelson Electric Tramway  Company to sell its surplus power to the  City of Nelson. As the Miner is the organ of both companies, it should be in  a position to state the facts.   However,  ' as the city (no thanks to either mayor  Fletcher or the Miner) did not get tangled up with the West Kootenay Power  & Light Company as has the Nelson  Electric Tramway Company iu a onesided agreement, it will probably manage to get along and let the two companies represented by the Miner fight i'  out in the courts. The people of Nelson  very naturally, will be in sympathy with  the   street   railway   company,   on   the  ���grounds-that-they-should-be-allowed-to  dispose of their surplus power as long  .as it is not interfering with the business  of the power company.  As a rule the business houses of Nelson did better during the holidays this  year than last. There was more money  in circulation and it was spent freely.  The one thing noticeable, however, was  that the holiday goods purchased this  year were of a good quality; that few  cared to purchase trashy goods.  Tho Neelands administration allowed  the flre limits by-law to be broken with  impunity at a cost of several thousand  dollars to the city. The Fletcher administration does not know that there  is a plumbing by-law.  High city officials carousing in barrooms during business hours is not an  edifying sight to those taxpayers who  occasionally "take a glass for the  stomach's sake."  Health Officer Called Too Early.  CARACAS, Venezuela, December 27.���The  German cruiser Vineta anchored off L:i-  guayra today. An interesting incident occurred early in the day when the Venezuelan health ofticer went alongside thc Vineta  at fi o'clock in th morning he was not allowed to board her. The Venezuelan oflicials Immediately interpreted the action of  the German oflicers to mean-that the cruisers had visited-.'Laguayra .on a warlike  basis in connection with the claims of tho  German citizens. But al 8 o'clock a German officer called on the oflicials and ox-  plained that the refusal to allow the health  officer on board the Vineta was due to tho  fact that he went alongside the cruiser at  too early an hour.

Where Private Monopoly Leads.  President J. J. Hill's carerully prepared  statement    regarding    tho    purposes    for  which   the   Northern   Securities   Company  was organized is plainly designed for consumption In Minnesota and the Northwest  Territory, where this consolidation of railroad  interests has  aroused  dangerous  opposition. What president Hill does, In effect, is to recall his services in the development of that section and appeal  to  the  sentiment of communities which have been  beneiltted  by  his railroad  schemes  In   the  hope of forestalling hostile action by state  oflicials.   lie   skilfully   avoids   touching   on  the  larger  phases   of  the   question   which  make his last stock deal a matter of national   importance.    Whether   he   and   his  confederates have successfully evaded  the  laws in bringing competing lines under one  management has not yet  been decided  by  the  courts.   If  it  should   prove   that   they  have failed, doubtless they will devise some  new expedient, as the syndicate promoters  did when they invented means to circumvent  tne   Sherman   Anti-Trust  Act.   "The community of interests"  idea is  the order  of  the  day.   The   state  legislatures  and   congress have failed  to kill  it,  and  the railroads seem  to regard it as their only salvation.   Yet   while   they   may  derive  some  temporary gains at the expense of the public  by   the   wholesale  merger  of  their  interests, it must be plain to them that they  are   working powerfully   toward   the  very  ends which their, most bitter enemies have  _?���;������      ?P"Bht to reach ."tW years.

STORY OF A COW PUNCHER  A  In Whicli a Fair Girl Figures  Sandy Duchene was a line rider on  the "Mashed O" ranch in the Indian  Territory in the clays when the ranges  were covered with cattle from the overstocked ranches of western Texas. He  came, like the steers he herded, from a  country where the law was looked upon  - as too1 sacred for every-day use, and  where the size of a ranchman's herd was  likely to-depend' more ou the number  and nerve of his cowboys than upon the  natural increase. When he had limbered  his legs, after the inaction of the caboose on the end of the cattle train, and  looked over the miles of open prairie,  he decided to like the country. His lirst  impressions were spoken too his boss,  colonel Clarke, who had "located" the  range the preceeding year.  "This ain't so bad for a country," h<  had said, "but wouldn't; it be slick if  tliis here long grass would cure on the  stem like the 'mesquite grass down in  Texas, and not have to'be cut."        -;*  Sandy 'then helped drive the cattle  from the little switch stock-yards to the  range, a dozen miles westward. across  the prairie. At the tiny board shanty  ranch headquarters, lie waited" for the  other train loads of untie and other  punchers. When these had arrived, and  Uie herd had been branded, the routine  duties were soon fixed, .. ���"' ;    ������������'���:���  'Well, .Sandy,-, you'll have the west  * line of this range, to l'ide, and every  "Hashed 0',' that gets'across it makes  your job shakier.': These steers have got  to beheld quiet if they're to fatten'-.this  summer." The boss realized that the  ��� West line was; the farthest from the  town and. therefore the most suitable for  an iiuregeherate puncher.'*'... "  "All right, colonel, west line goes. 1  rides it four times a clay, beds the long  horns over night an' holds 'em to tlio  range in spite of watpr-spouts an' cyclones." . ���'   ***''* ':'7.'..'.x  To a puncher who "spends his days riding from one fixed point to another, with  the slighest variation of route, there  comes a sense of monotony. Relief from  this monotony, in some way, is necessary���some find it in occasional tense  sprees, lasting foi- a week or more/in a  frankly wicked town, and ended when  the wages are spent and the dance-hall  proprietor grows unfriendly. When this  mJcthod fails, it becomes a matter of  speculation as to what the puncher will  do. He may steal a horse, join a gang  of marauding outlaws, or get married.  Sandy-had grown.tired of tlie elemental  wickedness of mankind, his condition  calling - for radical treatment." . He  "fought" his horse unnecessarily, and  swore at the food he had to cook. When  lie met Bill Seymour, an old Texas  friend, he confided to him that the whole  existence of a wage-earn ing cow-puncher was made bitter by the ancient curse,  and that he would do anything iu the  world to get away from it.  ^^Nothing-so^iard-about^thatf^replied-  * -Bill, who was nimble in wit, not overscrupulous in the matter of branding  calves, and could command the highest  wages when he cared to go to work.  "Go into business on your own hook.  Get yourself a herd or 'dogies' and  trade."  : "Yes. that is simple!" broke in Sandy:  "Go out an' pick a bunch of cattle off  the bushes, an' trade. But may be you  can tell me where they grow?"  "All around you." Bill swept a half  circle with his hand. "Do you want to  know, sure."  "Go on, I'm listening', replied the line  rider.  "It's just this, Sandy; steal a car-load  or two of Clarke's steers, run 'em away  in the night to Kansas, sell 'em an'  keei) the money to trade on. If you  want to do it I'll help you an' >xo shares  on the profit. There's the chance of  gettin' caught, but there's chances ir-  every game."  Sandy was not surprised at the suggestion, for he had thought of doing tliiV  -verv thins* himself. He told Bill tha-*  this was the first hit of sense he had  heard since the nether world was covered with a coating of ice. In tw^  weeks, when the Clarke steers would  lie in the best condition, he agreed to*  carry out the plan.  In the next two weeks Sandy grew  almost cheerful, planning with Rfiymn.iv  the details of the theft.' Whether the  thing was riatit or wrong* morally \ir  did not ston to consider: it was a war  out of drudgery, and drwlgerv was for  slaves.,. Free men should have unrestricted liberty. Tt was arransred that  forty of the choicest steers'should br  left, at the north end of the line late on  a. certain afternoon, while the other entile' were driven south. The neslec'  ���would seem accidental. Sandy would gr  to camp as usual, cook supper, and sr  to bed. At nine o'clock he would ridr  north on a fresh horse, meet' Bill Seymour where the forty steers had beer-  loft, bein to drive them to Kansas, tin?  return the twentv miles in the morninc  Bill had promised to sell them to a buyei  he knew, and divide tho profits honestly. ,  On the night appointed by tne two  Sandy carried out the ilrst nart of thr  nlan with no apparent difiiculty, wondering a little at. the friendliness of fate.  Tlie cattle were separated from the  others easilv, and left to wander un ."  north-bound ravine, while the puncher  rode to the ranch-house.

Save for  a full starlight, the night was 'dark; the  moon's phases had been considered in  the planning.1 Sleepy night-birds fluttered out of the grass in front of his horse;  a coyote howled,;and a single dog's challenge answered. The swish of the grass  tops striking softly the knees of the  horse had, a soothing effect, and tho  rider fell unconsciously to dividing the  sound into measures. He forgot for the  moment that he was on a thief's mission  increasing and decreasing the speed of  his horse to note the changing rhythm  of the caressing grass tops.  Half-way between the ranch-house  and the appointed rendezvous was the  squat little farm house of a white farmer named Weaver. Sandy had passed  it dozens of times and knew that, besides the old man and his wife, there  were two or three children. He believed  that one of these was a full-grown girl,  but. was not sure. He had never; had  occasion to stop there, and his curiosity  had iiot been awakened. Now,uas he  rode close to the shanty, alive to the  sounds about him, he heard the notes  of a violin.  "Must be a fiddler in the outfit," he  muttered   glancing   carelessly   towards  the wedge of lamplight that came from  a halfropen door."Wonder if he ever  plays for any dances around here?    1  wouldn't.; mind  hearin'" iiim,; grind  out  'Sandy Land' or the 'Arkansas Traveler'  on a. night like this."   And although the  player did not oblige with either of the  puncher's favorite tunes, ^Sandy reined  up    to .listen.''    It1 was;    Shumann's  "Dream   Song"   that  he  hoard,   played  with  keen. Reeling and  fair technique.'  It   aroused   a   quick  Response    in   the  'puiichei\ aiid he wondered   where   the,  melody had come from.   Certainly Dave  Hall had never played in that way when,,  tired of dancing, the crowd had called  for "justa tune."    Sanely rode 'nearer  and    listened   again'  ��e   hardly   knew  that the player had changed when the  "Gondolir's Song" came out to him full  of appeal to the elementary emotions.  The tremor in the notes, the absence of  technical pirouetting, tue simple fulness  of the music held him spellbound. Then  the music ceased for a moment, and the  listener heard a faint murmur of voices.  He rode quite near to the door to hear  better the music that might come next.  It was only the half-dozen concluding  bars   of   the.   "Venetian   Love   Song,"  played with   a fond   dwelling   on   the  notes,  that brought a  new  feeling of  tenderness  to the  puncher.    He  could  see the group inside now, and noted that  it was a fresh-faced girl who bad been  playing.   The music ended, she.twisted  die pegs of the violin, thrumming the  strings gently as she loosed.them.   Old  man   Weaver   was   yawning, and   tne  mother had  a child   in her   lap,   long  since asleep. '".'.*.  "My! it's awful late," Sandy heard  the girl exclaim, as she put away the  violin case and looiced towards the  clock. "Why don't you. stop me, dad,  when I get to playing at night like this?  =N.obody=will=want'to=gct=up=in=the=-morm*:=  ing." ,  "I don't reckon anybody'd want to  stop that kind of iidunn'," Sandy remarked to the steady wind that came  down from the north. Then he stopped  his pony���he had ridden on unconsciously when the family inside the shanty  had scattered���and turned in his saddle to gaze back at the black outline of  tho ugly sharp-cornered farm-house.  He turned his gaze to the north once  more where, two miles away, Bill Seymour was waiting impatiently. It seemed to the puncher that he had but just  thought of the plan to steal the cattle;  and the impression this fresh conception made upon him was different from  anything that he had felt before.  "It's stealin', that's what it is!" he  commented suddenly, and turned his.  horse about to ride back. "But, shucks,  it an't never beeu nothin' but stealiii'  since wo fixed it up." Sandy here remembered that the plan was two weeks  old, and the impulse much older. The  melody of the "Gondolier's Song" rang  in his ears; the unaffected simplicity  and innocence of the girl who loved her  violin waked a doubt in his mind. To  do or not to-do a thing swiftly, unhesitatingly, had been the puncher's way  and now he rode straight back to the  ranch house and went to bed. Bill Seymour waited until midnight decided that  Sandy had been hindered in carrying  out the plan, and went home also.  At the dance given by Buck Connor,  two days later, Sandy talked first to  Seymour, explaining briefly that "another puncher dropped in the other night  an' knocked the scheme out."  "I'll ride part way homo with you tonight, an' we'll fix it up for some other  time," said Bill.  But Sandy forgot thc arrangement un-  '.H ho was Almost homo. Without a moment's wirniiig ho had* heen presented to the  ���<lrl with tho violin, whose name she told  him, was Kitty Weaver. "And they call  ������ou 'Sandy,' don't they?" tho girl asked,  ivitli a simple I'ranknesK thai seemed to foe-  '.ons* to lhe "lidt'llin girl.'

Kitty,  '.:nnwiny; every ramification of the IlKiire,  'ried gravely to drag the puncher through  the maze. She frowned upon a girl tliat  laughed nt his awkward attempts.

She asked him about'.fits'  work, about the way to "hog-tie" a wild  steer, and about how he did the cooking  at.thc camp when he had finished his days  work. She told him of her own experiences  on a farm in Kansas, where she had risen  before daybreak every morning to milk u  dozen cows and get the milk ready to send  away to the market town.  "It was awful cold winter mornings and  awful hard work on the hands," she said,  spreading her hands before Sandy so that  he could not but admire their, large shape-  linesss. "I expect you never did mlllc a  cow, now did you? Youmust know how to  rope them and brand them, go on roundups, and such." She did not know the cowboy kind well and admired their strength  and dash.  "No,'! answered Sandy, "I ain't never had  no reason to milk them; and 1 reckon the  'Mashed O' cows would have to be tied  down'before they'd agree to that, anyway!  But milkin' ain't spoiled your hands!" The  puncher had "never, within his recollection,  turned a compliment so easily. "I reckon  you like music pretty well, don't you?"  Sandy ciuestioned as he noted the girl's  unconscious beating of time of the dance  music with her foot,-and remembered her  playing.    .  Music? Do you love it, too? I play thc  riddle in a kind of way. I learned some  things up in Kansas of a girl who came  out from the east. She was mostly sick,  and played the fiddle a lot, and died from  consumption in a year or two."  . "She didn't play this kind, of a tune?"  asked Sandy... Sandy indicated the soli-  atry musician in a corner of the dancing  floor, who played sleepily and mechanically. She grew enthusiastic over their common passion, and asked him, as she was  claimed for a later set, if he would not  ride over on a Sunday and see her.  "Is that straight?" queried Sandy impulsively, then flushing, amended: "I'd bo  mighty glad to, when 1 can get off. An' I'll  learn you how to rope."  "And I'll let-you" milk our old cow," .responded the-girl. "Yes, and play for you,  If you'd care to,listen." Sandy forgot that  the dance was not. half over, and rode  home thinking of the girl's, last promise.  It was after Sandy ^ad paid his first  Sunday visit to Kitty, and" had pleased her  by his enthusiasm and awkward devotion,  that he next met Bill Seymour.  "Sandy, you've put off seeing me long  enough," began Bill. Clark's done shipped  one: train-load of steers and I want to know  whether you're going to carry this agreement out or not.",  .   "Well, I ain't," . Sandy replied briefly.  "Why ain't: you? Is -it-.that cow-faced  Weaver girl that's making a Sunday school  boy out of you?"  -.-���������;������  "It's that Weaver girt that will make me  whip you until you swaller them words,"  Sandy retorted and sprang to the ground.  "Now, get down here and fight mo if  you're a man. I'm through with your kind  that "don't .have decency enough to keep  from insulting a pure girl. Come ou and  fight." * '   ,  Bill Seymour was not a. coward. He  jumped from his horse and met the on-rush  of the insulted cow-puncher in the same  matter of fact way that he would have  dealt with an infuriated steer. As Sandv  ran towards him with wildlv out-stretched  arms, he stepped aside and tripped him.  Then he threw himself forward to pin  the prostrate man's arms to the ground,  as he had often done with the outrcaching  horns of a Texas steer. But Sandy knew  that trick and. met the lunge with'an upraised shoulder,  knocking Bill  off.  -  Both got to their feet and stod silent for  a moment. .'���.'���"*.  "You're a purty blue eyed fool, ain't  you?" blurted Seymour. "A circuit-riding  sky pilot would look like a; devil 'side of  you." Bill did not finish his sentence before  the blue eyed puncher sprang forward,  swinging a blow against his antagonist's  jaw. That roused Seymour to the point of  becoming incautious. He made a quick  movement to draw a pistol from his rear  pocket and Sandy took.advantage of the  opening to knock him down.  "Give the gun to me," Sandy commanded,  "and we'll finish this business without it."  Bin gayo_up_the pistol-androso^to^Jiis^feet^  "Sandy-jafitmed it into the cinch of Bill's  saddle girth, coming back to take up the  battle again. Then the two circled in the  thick grass, their spurs ripping it to shreds,  and their boot heels, long and sharp, digging into the earth. It was give and take,  tho blows arousing a growing fury. They  grew closer together, and then closed in a  wrestler's grip, but the tricks of the wrestler wero unknown to them. They rolled  about in the grass, beating the earth and  each other as fortune favored. Bill thought  of his spurred heels and tried to rip the  puncher's legs���Sandy took an opportunity  to twist Bill's ear until the spurs were forgotten. The men were strong, but there  came a time when neither could deliver an  effective blow, and lay apart gasping for  breath.  At last Bill arose and stepping to where  Sandy lay, spoke to him: "Any man's a fool  to lose his head over a woman the way  you've done, but if he's willing to fight  the way you've fought, I'm willing to  apologize for putting names on her." They  smiled af each from battered faces, mounted their horses and rode away.  The puncher did not toil Kittv of this  fight with Seymour for a long time, nor  of the moral struggle in connection with  the contemplated cattle stealing. He loved  tho girl with an elevating and novel passion, and one day he confessed it to himself.-  "But, shucks, she wouldn't have me!"  ho exclaimed .thinking of his past record  and the girl's contrasted purity. "A son-of-  a-gun like me ain't fit for her. She's worth  a good-man's gettings. But I can be a decent  fellow'with' her if I make up mv mind to  it and I'll make a try at roping that girl  DISPATCH IS THE SOUL OF BUSINESS  Tbis is always true, but never more so than in the holiday season of the Jewelry business,  when the loss of a day in filling an order means the loss of a sale.

Afterwards  she said that Sandy did not speak a dozen  words in an hour from the time he came to  the Weaver home until he made the proposal. They were sitting in the shadow of  the house when Sandy, clearing his throat  and doing his utmost to appear calm, be-  aan:  "Miss Kitty, you know, I reckon, that  I got into a little trouble with a puncher  the other day?" Kitty shook her head.  "And we had a light about���about you."  "About nie? Oh, Sandy, what was it?"  Her tone was encouraging.  "You know, Kitty," Sandy forced himself to go on, "that I was sort of thinking  about you, and the way you're fiddling sort  of kept me out of a hole once���an' the  wrong  feller rubbed   up against  me  then.  "Yen?"  Kitty fiucMtloned. eagerly.  "Yes, it was like this here: you know  how I feel about yon, you know how the  music���and t was about to do a mighty low  thing���it helped me.

Sandy sat helplessly down  in a chair, the sweat starling from his face,  afraid to look at hor.  Kilty was a girl or rare sense.

Ex-governor Mackintosh, who Is at present in London, has an interview In the  Colonial Goldfields Cazetlc in which he refers to the Rossland labor situation and  makes an estimate of what it has cost  the Le Koi management up to the present  tn its fight with the minors' union. Ia the  couvso of )iis interview Mr. Mackintosh  said: "I hope you do not imagine that I am  either a 'bull' or a 'bear' of Le Roi shares,  t never bought or sold one, or made a  farthing out of the Le Roi. I believe, given  fair play and worked by skilled labor,  It has a great future. The new manager.  Mr. Mackenzie, was formerly manager of  the Mariposa Grant, California, ami is convinced that ho can reduce tho whole cost  of treatment to $7.0, if not less. The managor of ihe smelter, Mr. Szontagh, has ar-  rvled and is pulling things together. I estimate the cost of the foolish battle against  the unions as approximating $250,000. it Is  an expensive thing teaching blacksmiths  to make wntch springs. It takes a. long  time to eradicate the smell of the forge.  1 am sure the Le Roi directors were not  conversant with all the facts. However,  1 hope harmony may soon be restored, and  the mine vouchsafed a chance of proving  wliat it is capable of."  JI  Eig Railway Shops.  POCATELLO.   Idaho,  December  27 ���  The last act  in  the preliminary  work  of  establishing  the  mammoth   ?700,0!)0  shop plant by tlio Oregon  Short  Line  contract of Grace & Hyde, Chicago. This  firm 2'ets the structural iron work for  tlio machine shop, blacksmith shop,  boiler shop, a. portion of the car shop  and the ten-stall addition to the roundhouse. Work is to commence at once  on the roundhouse addition and foundations for the buildings. Other contracts  have been let for masonry, excavation,  woodwork and various other features.  Some weeks ago the contract for the  electrical appliances and machinery  wits let to the Westingliouse company  and machines ordereii from various  manufacturers of the east. While the  cost of tho plant, will be $700,000 eventually, the amount to be expended in the  next twelve months will not exceed  $100,000. The shops haye been under  discussion for several years and now  that thoslast contract has just been let  the news will cause great joy to Poca-  tello people, as it means so much for  that town. From time to time the Tribune has given all the plans as far as  progressed, but it can be added that the  compressed air and electrical appliances,  whicli can lift an engine bodily and all  the other features, will be second  to none in the west. About two months  ago a full description of the proposed  plant was given. Tho roundhouse was  built in 1S90, so it. is modern. The ten  new stalls are badly needed and for this  reason will be built at once.  STAGE  ROBBER CAPTURED  Played the Game Alone.  UKIAH, California. December 27.���  One Mendocino stage robber came to  grief yesterday, and his arrest and confession came as a surprise to the residents of this, vicinity. The culprit proved to be himself the driver of a stage,  who, between trips, amused himself and  added to his assets by robbing coaches  driven by other knights of the rein, ln  his arrest the comity oflicials may have  landed tlio man who, during the summer months, made travel by stage in  this region expensive to many summer  resort visitors. Robberies were numerous, and the lone highwayman who  * committed them, always selected a  stage crowded with wealthy city folic  going for a' sojourn at the beautnu  Lake county resorts, reached from  points along' the Northwestern railroad.  Tlie southbound stage Known as the  .overland, was stopped and robbed at  6 o'clock this morning by a masked  man, one mile above Willits. Tho robber took Wells Fargo's box and tho  mail sack. George Cook, "the driver, believed he recognized the robber's voice  as that of John Ivans, who drives the  stage between Willits u.'id Port Bragg.  On arriving at Willits Cook went to  Ivans' room and found he was absent.  It was learned that Ivans arose at 5  o'clock and had not been seen in Willit5  after that until 7 o'clock. Cook charged  Ivans with the crime, and the accuser  man made a vehement denial.  Sheriff Smith started for Willits wli^n  notified, and found om Ms arrival there  that Ivans had not. been formally arrested, though the sheriff's son, Charles  Smith, of Willits. bad t.he suspect under  surveillance. Sheriff Smith swore out  a warrant and arrested Ivans. He started for Ukiah with his prisoner anrt on  the wav Ivans confessed the robbery  and told where t.ho express box and gun  were concealed. He said he did not  have time to onen the box. and intended  to return for it. The shotgun used, he  declared  was not. loaded.  Previous to Ivans' arrest, the ma.il  ���sack, cut one'n and rifled, had been  found near the scene of the holdtin.  Tvans is known hero and was the  ni'inc'nal witness during; a recent, murder trial. - He is now in the county jail.  How He Got His College Expenses.  A successful Auburn man tells the fol-  was   performed   yesterday   when   vice-  president Bancroft finally approved the 1 row with my liveliest competitor.  lowing story of his own experiences:  "I wanted to get some money to go to  college," says he, "and the only way  was to earn it. 1 had no trade, which  made it hard. I resolved that 1 would  try what bluffing would do. I went to  Boston and after a while I struck a job  as a meat cutter. When I went iuto  the store the proprietor asked me what  I could do, and I told 'him 1 could cut  meat. He wanted a good meat cutter,  and 1 hired out to him. i nad seen meat  cut but had never cut any myself.  "So when 1 took up a knife and went  to work it was not to be wondered at  that my employer called me to account.  He was on his'ear, as they say, and I  can't say I blame him. 'Look hero,  young man,' he said, 'that ain't the  way to cut meat.' 'Well,' said 1, 'that's  the way they cut. meat up in Vermont.'  'I don't care,' he replied, "this is not  Vermont. 1 want you tc understand  that if you are going to cut meat in  Boston you've got to cut it the way we  cut it.' And with this he took the knife  and saw and showed me how they cut  meat in Boston. I detained him as long  as I could, and I never tried to remember anything half so hard.  "I guess I grasped the situation, for  I remained there as meat-cutter several  months. When I struck Auburn I had  an idea I would go to work in the shoe  factories. I went to every factory save  one and stated my desire. I didn't  know any part of the business, and 1  got the cold shoulder. Many of the foremen took my name and address and said  when they wanted a man they would  send for me. I guess they haven't wanted a man since; at any rate, they haven't  sent for me. When I entered the last  shop I was desperate, and I resolved to  try my old game of bin ft.  "They asked me what I could do, and  I told them I was a cutter, .adding that  T was very sure I could please them.  Thoy set nie to- work; I went slow at  first, for I was watching to see how the  fellows did it. By good luck I got onto  the cutting without spoiling much  leather, and before many days I could  cut tinners with the best of them. I  worked there two ypnrs. and when 1  left, to enter college they seemed sorry  to have me n;o.

OF CHEFS  AND  EPICURES  Inventing of New Dishes.  Paris is lamenting the retirement of  Cuslmir, chut' ot' the Hulson it'Or, u restaurant loiiB* famed for its gooil cooking.  (Jasiinu- lias served two genei-auwiis ot  epicures, ito has iJi-epiireu dinners for  princes, for famous men and women of all  nations, foi" great statesmen, for groat  beauties, and  traveling Americans.  Tlie" old chef declares that the modern  generation are degenerate diners; that line  alfeets in cooking are no longer appreciated; that good wines are no longer drunk  a.s they used to be, and that there Is no Inspiration for the artist of the cuisine.  It is a fact that in the last ten years or  so there has been a great simplicity in dinners. The series of wines thac used to be  correct has practically gone out of fashion, and one wine Is now usually served  inrougli a repast, or perhaps half the  courses that were formerly considered necessary.  Chets and epicures generally attack this  new fashion, declaring it to be a culinary  crime. They insist thai the fish require one  wine and the roast another; an entree  calls for a third, and the salad and finishing dishes absolutely demand a change in  thu glasses. But with the decline of heavy  diners   the   list  has  been  shortened.  While chefs lament the new order of  things, physicians decidedly declare it to  be an advantage toward tlie health of  brain and body. The race of epicures, they  say, has declined and died oil with gouty  diseases  and   liver complaints.  The old-time dinner -was more of a debauch, they say. Nowadays dinner is only  a prologue to some more intellectual or artistic pleasure, a visit to the theater or a  dance.  Heavy drinking has happily gone out of  date with heavy eating, and the new race  promises to be all the more interesting and  capable of achievement. Refinement has  declared impossible thc old fashion by  which the ladies at a dinner retired with  the coming of the port wine.  Caslmir, however, was an artist, and  as such his passing is ^piored. In Paris  and in London the chef of a restaurant  speedily becomes famous and makes the  :>ec|iialntanco of his appreciative patrons,  hi American the stenwrd and the head  waiter, even, eclipse the chef as a rule in  tlieir  personal   prominence.  Caslmir tells of an occasion when the  elder Dumas Invited him to dinner for tho  CHRISTMAS PUDDING  We have the best stock of peel and Christmas  fruits in the city. Everything fresh. This season's  lemon, orange and citron peel, cleaned currants  and raisins.  Houston Block  Nelson, B C.  J. A. IRVING & CO.  pleasure of discussing with him the mysteries of the cuisine. And he tells of another time when the marquis St. Georges  embraced him for inventing a soup that  afterwards became famous as pottage Ger-  miny.  Joe, the East Indian chef who long  cooked curries at the Savoy and afterward  at the Cecil, has many handsome jewels  presented to him by foreign potentates  who were pleased with his dishes. Proudly  he displays a set of gold butttons bearing  the coat of arms of tl;e prince of Wales  and given to him by king Edward before  the  death  of  queen  Victoria.  in New York few chefs ever gained the  prominence and fame of the late Charles  Ranhofer, who long presided over tho  kitchen of Delmonico's. Ranhofer was a  practical   cook,   master  of  his  profession.  He was typically a Frenchman, and had  the rosy complexion and twinkling eye  that usually accompanies good living. He  always wore a cap and apron and had his  ofllce in the old Twenty-sixth street kitchen with innumerable speaking tubos connected with the dining rooms up stairs.  He personally prepared each day's menus  and overlooked the preparation of the different dishes.-He never lost his sense of  taste, as many chefs do, and he could detect the exact shade of flavoring that was  needed to perfect a sauce.  When a banquet was served Ranhofer  worked with zeal, concocting dishes, each  a masterpiece in itself and yet a harmonious part of the whole. It was his care and  pride to seee tliat all game birds served were  cooked to the exact degreee of perfetion.  Kilipini, who prceded Ranhofer, had a  record of twenty-five years with tliat famous house, being associated with it in its  first fovlunr-s down-town. His methods'  wero older and more elaborate in the way  of flavoring, and in the invention of new  methods for the cooking of flsh he was a  gcuuis.  The chef of the Hotel Martin, soon to  occupy thc old Delmonico place, has gamed  fame for his dishes en casse-role. His  cooking embraces the French and several Italian and German methods, which  he puts in practice on special occasions.  In London the chefs of thef different restaurants are, if anything, better known  than in Paris. They are consulted personally and by letter before a dinner is given,  and receive many gifts from their patrons.  Senator Chauncey Depew Married.  NICE, December 27.���The civil ceremony only occupied ten minutes. The  American flags,- flying from three wall-  equipped carriages drawn up outside the  American consulate, alone indicated that  something unusual was going on inside.  The shutters of the consulate were closed on the inside, bright lamps were  burning and a silken American flag was  spread over the table round wliich stood  the principals, the witnesses and the  other persons present at the first ceremony in the marriage of senator Depew and Miss Palmer. Senator Depew  looked ten years younger than his real  age. He was in high spirits and ma.de  contribution to the consular charity  fund. The special license for this ceremony was signed by president Loubet.
