Not, One of the Old Employees Will
Report for Work—Outlook Is Bad
I. for the Rifle Match.
ROSSLAND, September 22.—[Special
to The Ti ibune.]—The Le Roi manager
is making a last despeiate effort to
start woik before the arrival of dnector
Frecheville Woik is announced to commence tomorrow, but none of the Rossland men will be on hand. Iyliners who
have been brought to Northport from
Missouri and other parts of the States
have been brought on here in direct violation of the Alien Labor Act, and these
I' men will be deported in duo time. The
offer made by Kadis_i to the smeltermen at Northport and tho oilers made
to the men here will have only one ending Freche\ille is expected here very
shortly now, and if he fails to effect a
' settlement, the strike will go on. The
union men here say they have several
cards to play this coming week and de-
claie they are confident of success. The
War   Eagle   company  and  the   Le  Roi
| No. 2 company have issued writs against
the miners' union and otheis for damages along the lines ot the suits instituted last week by the Center Star, Le
Roi, and Rossland-Great Western com-
Tho Nelson riflemen are "quartered"^
the Kootenay hotel; but the outlook for
a match tomonow is not good, it being
cold, wet, and very stormy tonight.
Work at the Referendum. '
'. John Lynch, who lias charge of the
T development of the Referendum group
"on Forty-nine creek, leturned fiom
'Rossland yesterday, where he has been
in consultation with the officers of the
Referendum company with respect to
future work. The officers of the company
expressed themselves as highly pleased
with the manner in which the property
has been opened up by Mr. Lynch and
decided „ to give hiroYa free" hand to carry
on' the'-work, s'ueh'^'as-.-he -.considers, ad--
visable .during the approaching winter."
When Mr. Lynch took hold ot the property this summer the workings were
filled with water to within a few feet
of the surface. His first job was the installation of a pump, and he now has
ihe water so well in hand that there
is not much more coming from the shaft
than he requires for steam purposes m
his boiler. His first contract "was finished with the driving of a GO foot drift
from the bottom of the 100-foot shaft.
This it was expected would have tapped
a rich showing whicli had been prospected with a small snaft some distarce
further along the vein but it fell short
a few feet. Work upon this drift will
110w1.be resumed. This ledge is only 18
inches'"wide, but the ore fiom it is said
lo he /remarkably rich About 50 teot
irom the mouth of the mam shaft a
second duft has been run at right angles
to that staited by Mr. Lynch. This is
three foot ledge which crosses the smaller ledge Mr. Lynch proposes this winter to drift both ways on this ledge
He will leave for the Referendum and
get things in shape for resuming work.
It is altogether likely that the five stamp
mill which the Referendum company has
now on the property will be installed.
Mr. Lynch is of the opinion that he will
be able to mill at last twenty tons of the
Referei-dui. oro per day with the five
stamps, and from tests made upon the
oie it is said that the cost of opening
xhe propei ty up can be met from the proceeds of the mill.
Stampede at Northport.
NORTHPORT, Washington, September 22.—[Special to The Tribune.]—The
announcement that Bela Kadish had
made an offer in writing to take back
all tho old smelter employees without
prejudice, once it became known to the
present employees created a panic. It
is said the new men, nearly all of whom
live in bunkhousos at the smelter, began
rolling their blankets' and packing up
tholr effects so as to take the southbound train today. It took Bratnober
and Kadish some time to got them to
resume work, and then only after Bratnober'had made a statement in Avriting
that they (the new men) would not be
molested. It is now current rumor that
manager Kadish is to be lot out—he is
io be the scapegoat.

Only Ono Safe Method
All the precautions tne United Stat03
can take in the way of restricting immigration wili not lessen the dangers
■which menace the life of ita chief execu-
•tive.   The imposition cf harsher penal-
sties for assassination, will be equally
ineffective. The class of which Leon
Czolgosz is a type is .not the peculiar
product of the United States. The
countries from which this ' dangerous
loreign element" emmates are not freer
liom anarchist conspiracies than the
American republic. Ine Polish anarchist who shot William McKinley would
With far more eagerness have sent a
bullet to the heart of the czar ol Russia.
There is a more dangerous set of anarchists in Russia than is to be found in
the United'States. Yet the statistics of
assassinations go to show that the constitutional govenors of the American
republic have sultered far more from the
designs of the assassin than the despots
ot Russia. Prosident McKinley mixed
among the multitudes. Czar Nicholas is
travelling in an armoured train. ^ _he
. epublican *form of government courts
violence to its representative i the despot surrounds himself with every conceivable safeguaid. The government of
the United States cannot exclude the
element of which Leon Czolgosz *is a
type. It cannot inflict a penalty so fear-
iul as to terrify the fanatics which the
anarchist sentiment will occasionally
bieed. 'ihe one safe method of preventing assassinations is to give diligent
protection to the life me assassin seeks.

The British   Army  in
Has Become 'Worn' Out
",    ' and ' Stale.
On the Strike at Rossland.
The following appeared as an editorial m the Vancouver Province on Saturday, and is significant 'coming from
the recognized newspaper oigan of the
Liberal party in Vancouver. Does it
mean that the Alien Labor Act is to be
strictly enforced at Rcssland? If it
docs, the importation of strike-breakers
from Joplin, Missouri,'will come to a
sudden end. British Columbia must be
kept free from alien contract labor,
whether it be from Missouri or China,
The Province editorial says:
"We are doubtful of the'speedy settlement of.the strike in the Rossland camp
from the fact that the men when they
went out were m a position to fight the
matter for come months; .and besides
this they not only had assistance from
the ether side of the line, but the great
majority of them could go elsewheie in
British Columbia or ^the .United States
and get as much money for', their labor
as they were' obtaining in .the Le Roi
and Center Star properties. _, Not* only''
could they-get as muchjmoney.-but tliey,
would'not'be in> the'atmosphere of-dis-*-/
tiust and anxiety which - existed' in
Rossland foi a year and a half prior to
the shutdown. It is well known on all
hands that the managers of tlie .War
Eagle' and Center Star properties had
been making it uncomfortable for the
men for many months previous, and do-
,mg it'evidently with one object in view,
'ihis is so patent to merchants and mineis alike in the Rossland camp that ex-
governor Mackintosh, in an , interview
with*him in the Rossland Miner in April
last, said that the mine managers appeared anxious that the properties in
their charge should not pay dividends,
ihe remark of the governor's was 'in
reierence to the uncompromising attitude of Messrs. McDonald and Kirby,
and the apparent desire manifested by
them to outiage the sensibilities of the
men to such a degree that a*- strike
would be declared. It is more than pos-
Mr. Mackintosh had an inkling,of the
stock-jobbing propensities of the directois of both companies, and taking the
action of the managers into consideration m this connection he came to the
conclusion that in the whole conduct of
the mines there was so much going on
below the surface as to justify him <m
imagining that a shutdown for a time at
least was necessary to the purpose of
those who were operating the shares.
It is announced that a Mr. Geiser has
obtained a contract for taking out a
considerable portion ot the ere of, the
Le Roi, and in this connection the assertion is made that he can piocure all
the mineis he wants in Rossland. It is
more than probable that under cover of
pach a pretence he will attempt to bring
in cheap labor from the other side. It
if.' to be hoped that if any such attempt
is made it will be-defeated, even if the,
government has to take action in help-'
ing to do so.' There- is little doubt that
at one time the manager of the Center
Star imported a: considerable number of
'Italians from Ythe. other side, and in do-"
in**;, so had the secret assistance of the
manager . of the Le Koi.. He ' had ■ to
cease doing so .in compliance with outraged public opinion, but there is little
question that the policy of the managers
iu Rossland in this respect has not been
changed and that they will, do everything in their power to bring in objectionable labor, for. the purpose of cutting down wages. It is to-be hoped
that, it there Is an attempt to resume
work on a basis of that kind it: will fail.
It is the desire of all interested* in the,
province that operations should be resumed with white working men on every
level and*!in every department of the.
mines.--*'     ";Y'   .-'.-'- -*■"■ ■' : ' y" :''

The proceedings of the British Association have escaped observation>outside
of Glasgow, owing to tne   pressure   of
exeater events.    It has  been   an   unusually business,and practical lesson. The

' LONDON,1 September .,22.—if fc.' Forcp

There have been Signal proofs this week
of the cohesive clannishness of the Anglo-Saxon race. s The spontaneous manifestations of homage" of \he"martyred

essential unity ^of the English speaking
world, and so long as the Anglo-Saxon
race, stands, together i^the   burdens   and
responsibilities of .the s future  may. be,
faced with courage and faith," whether*.
in Washington or in London. "English^
men have also received fresh proofs of
the loyalty of-the* empire in-the heartyf
reception of "the  duke of Cornwall in
Canada.   And ^these have' been timely,
since the unexpected,,reverses in South
Africa have created" a feeling of dissatisfaction, allbeit no dismay. •
'- The'welcome received by the czar /in
France is regarded here as' a greater
'triumph for the bourgeois than lor,the,
peace loving autocrat. '__ach hasv called
the other'"friend and ally.^tJut the're"-
soiirces ot a dual alliance have not been
materially "strengthened'by"'the" celebra-
^ticn at Compeigne and the sham fight at
Rheims.< <The* araments   of *, European
powers'are so effectively" neutralized by
the alliances  of^ .governments'^and^^the,
personal .relations of rulers,'That 'meet-'
ings. like -that at Compeigne 'are 'chiefly
remarkable for .then* extraordinary'precautions,taken for the prevention of Anarchist outrages.    Englishmen  do  not
conceal their ^conviction that the relations of their own government* with the
i dependencies of the empire and-jwith^the
American republic otter surer safeguards
for i the future than coalitions with'the
armed powers of the Continent.    They;
are not alarmed by the change of "powers'
at Washington, for while Mr.' Roosevelt
has erroneously   been   described, as v.a
jingo and an enemy of England, they
1 believe that he will prove a,conservative'
statesman and a true friend of international peace.
The diplomatic view of Anglo-American relations is that the canal treaty
will be sent by- president Roosevelt to
the senate in December and ratified with
little delay, and that it will be accom-
panied by a convention for the purchase
of the Danish West Indies     What is
considered of vital importance' is  that
the canal question should be adjusted so
scientifically that England will never be
called upon to enforce any provisions
against the United States on represent
tations Irom Berlin, and, moreover, tho
bhance ot any conflict over the Monroe
Doctrine may be removed by the timely
acquisition of the  Danish   V. est Indies
before   Germany   finds   herself   strong
enough at sea to challenge it. _
The'reverses in South Africa have not
been accepted very philosophically,-but
no panic has been created.   Lord Kltch-,
ner's proclamation is now geneially're-
garded as a tactical   blunder,   since it
was inoperative as a menace and offered
the Boer   leaders   leisure   for   reilttin..
their arms after a period of rest and
making plans for a series ol unexpected
attacks. The importance cf these, British reverses is neither minimized nor exaggerated.   The moral   is   drawn-that
there must' be • no more proclamations'
and, no, more nesotiations, ■: but-that the*
conclusion must be faced that the sub-';
juration of  theY gu.er_--.as  will  require
many weeks and be attended with excep-
tiona,!* difliculty.- 'The-'.government; is
Y naturally 'criticised for lack of resolution
i and.strenuousness in the conduct of the
war, but  th£   truth, , is.also   discerned
that the British army; has become worn
; out and.'stale by.the.prolongation'of the,
ionflict; arid'*that'the1 oflicers aiid men
; are as. readily, drawn, into traps and dup-.
ed.by the Boers dressed in khaki -as' they \
were, during .the. earliest  stag e of "the
war.1? The British'army has always been
regarded as small but fit ,f9r any emergency.   'English  'truthfulness   is   proof;
; against self-deception.-  It:lays' bare the'
.loss.of military efficiency and the decline of-prestige of officers with stark-
naked candor,; and dismisses-Mr.-Broder-
ick's   scheme   of.  army   reorganization
with shrugs of disdain as a hollow mock-
;;ery.   Indeed, British pessimism goes to
the verge. of injustice to the army in
an hour of self-abasement.; It does not
take ^account of the extraordinary difficulties presented by .n war with   the
bravest and most dogged guerillas his-
, tory has ever known, and by the  vast
extent of territories which must be occupied and protected.     Any   army   of'
regulars would be at a serious disadvan-
. tage .inl stamping out ,the operations. bf
the Boers,and be exposed to unexpected
reverses.   Brilliant as   the ' exploits  of       John Andrew Mara arrived  in

. J  -Aguinaldo Fears Assassination-
.MANILA,; Septeber 22.—Aguinaldo's
bodyguard, made up of major Alhambra,
2 captains, 2 lieutenants, and 29 men,
with 28 rifles, surrendered about forty
miles north of Baler, Island' of Luzon,
to captain Detchemendy of the 22nd-Jm-
fantry yesterday, took ^ho oath of al-
leigance, and were released. After Alhambra killed the president of Casiguran, captain Detchemendy requisitioned
a 'steamer and pursued him closely,
would have been   captured   within
hour if he had not surrendered.
Since Aguinaldo left general MacAr-
thur's house foi his present place of con-
.finement, he has nevei left'the premises,
although he is at liberty to do*if accompanied by an officer. The reason assigned is that he fears assassination at
the hands of partisans of the late general Luna.
General Chaffee has 'refused the request for the release of prisoners on the
island of Guam. He considers that their
lelease would not be safe until the capture or surrender of Malvar and Luk-
ban, and he also believes that the friends
of the prisoners desiring their release
will use their influence to biing about

Plans Trip Through Siberia
LONDON, September 22.—Harry De-

third attempt to accomplish an overland
journey via Behring straits between Eu-
lope and America. On the first occasion,
starting from New Yoik he managed to
reach the< Asiatic, coast of the straits,
but owing to  his  capture and  subse-
ment: "The two boys, the one that shot
the president and Waldeck, used to come
to my house and talk to me about their
Socialist papers. They brought their
papers to me, and tried to get me to read
them. Once when they were during the
last presidential campaign, they-got to
talking about president McKinley, and
one of them said: 'If he is elected he will
be shot before he serves out his term;'
and then went on, 'I would serve John
Rockefeller the same way ilf* I got a
chance.' They talked of violence all the
time,, and I was "glad when'they went
out of the neighborhood." *

again attempted the journey in the reverse direction, but owing to the political situation in China _nd on the Amur,
count Lamsdorff refused to allow him to
cross to Siberia, and again Mr Dewindt
had to relinquish the idea. Now, however, Mr. Dewindt is receiving assistance from tho Russian authoi lties, also
fiom rear admiral George W. Melville,
chief of the bureau of steam engineering or the navy department in Washington, a1* a result of which he intends to
stait on the journey for the north.
Early in November Georgo Harding,
who has accompanied Mr. Dewindt on
all his previous travels, will proceed
from Paris to Yakutsk, where he will
get together dog and reindeer teams
until Mr. Dewindt's amval. On Dccem-
■ber 1st Mr. Dewindt will leave Paris and
travel-by the Trans-Siberian railway
direct to.the terminus of Irkutsk, which
place wil be reached on December 20th.
Thence the traveler will proceed to Yakutsk, a distance of 1300 miles, involving
a three-week's sleigh journey. Arriving
at. Yakutsk early in .January, Mr. .Dewindt -will join Mr. Harding, who will
thnn have in readiness tne impedimenta
for the long; journey 'to Behring straits.
MrY Dewindt's; chief .object is to survey the country to the northeast of Yakutsk, to which point the Russian government is. projecting a railway next' year
from Irkutsk. Yakutsk will then be.a
junction oh^tho Siberian sections. From
Yakutsk.to Behring straits/which with
the exception of one mountain-range, is
all flat, will also be surveyed in'view of
a possible extension of railways. On-the"
American side surveyors are already
working, on the northern extension of
the Klondike railroad to the A,merican
shore of Behring straits.
A Startling Possibility.
CLEVELAND, Ohio, September 23.—
Investigations made today by police detective Schmunk reveal tho startling
possibility that a plot to assassinate
president- McKinley was made a year
ago, before he was elected for his second
term, and that it may have been laid in
the peaceful town of Orange, where the

Dutch Rising, Predicted,    "
* LONDON.   September   22.—The'-, war
. oflice has  received  the  following  despatch from lord Kitchner, .dated Pretoria, September 22nd:"., "Kritzinger, while
'endeavoring   to   force .a'•> passage"1 of
Orange river, near.Hershell. at.l o'clock
, on FridayYmorning, rushed" the.- camp
ot a party of T_ovatt's Scouts. > He failed
i i «. \
'to cross the river but the scouts,(lost'
heavily. --Lieutenant-colonel Murray"arid*
captain*  Murray,' his   adjutafat, 'were*
'killed.   I "-deeply regret the loss "ofv colonel'Murray, who'throughout the"Var
; had led* Lovatt's Scoutsi with''great, gallantry.'V Under cover of darkness the
fBoers managed to carry off a gun_-'jrhey
.were promptly followed up and the gun
was'recovered* in a smart engagement,
^n which Kritzinger "lost 2'killed, and 20
taken prisoners. '   ' "   \
t , Lord; Kitchner also reports ,thaf-. five
(of the„British captured by the Boers in
■ the ambush near Scheeper's-Nek* on Sep-
i tember 17th have been released, and that
Ithe .'British, casualties in the1 recent
jValkfontem engagement, when the" Boers
captured a company of mounted"infantry
and two guns, were 1 offlcernand 5'men
' killed. 23"'m'en'"-'woundedfcan(li-6 -.officers-
"and^lOO men taken prisoners." He an-,
nounces that these prisoners have since
been released. He further reports 'the
capture of two commandoes, one consisting of 55 men under commandant
Kochs, who were taken together with
their entire transport west of Aden-
burg, and the othei, consisting of '54
'men, including J. P. Botha,"" who. were
taken with 48 wagons and their belongings 45 miles southeast of Carolina.
A most alarmist letter from ^ape-
town is published today by the' Daily
.Express. The writer says: "The Boers
are overruning Cape Colony. They are
now 40 miles off Capetown, even the m-
telhsence department does not know
how many colonial rebels have taken up
arms In the last fortnight _ The__town
guard of Capetown has been calling in
the magazine rifles and ammunition ostensibly because .these are wanted at
the front. Martini rifles have been served
out instead." In conclusion the wnter
declares: "The Dutch element in the
colony is in revolt, and it is useless to
disguise the fact"
At Pretoria the strength of the Boers
in the field is estimated at 11,000. If
these figures be correct, the Boers must
be constantly getting recruits and tnoir
iupply of ammunition seems to be inexhaustible. In Boer circles in Holland
it is asserted that everything is prepared for a Dutch rising in both Cape
Colony and Natal.
Anarchists Declare War.
SPRING VALLEY, Illinois, September
22, — Twenty anarchists, armed with
double barrelled shotguns and 1000
rounds of amunition are standing guard
over the ofllce of L'Aurore, the notorious Anarchist publication wliich ex-'
pressed joy at the murder of president
McKinley and satisfaction over the announcement of the assassin Czolgosz
that he was an AnarcnistY Meanwhile,
fully armed citizens of adjoining towns
have sent for the authorities, and they
are ready and extremely anxious to start
at a moment's notice for tne scene and
assist in exterminating the, Reds. . Tomorrow a committee.will wait on general manager Dalzell of the Spring Valley Coal Company, who resides in Chicago, and insist that he discharge every
known Anarchist in his employ. The
Anarchists threaten .to hold a mass
meeting tomorrow evening. If they persist in this plan, a riot is almost certain
to ensue, and, there can be but one ending, for the patriotic citizens here will
be reinforced by outsiders who will come
prepared for business.

Fulling Itself Together.
BUFFALO, September 22.—This city
is pulling itself together after a fortnight of^sorrow such as has never been
known. What intended to be a gala
period of its history was turned into unspeakable grief, which has gone into
every home with a force hard for anyone
not here to realtee. Bullalo was full of
personal loyalty and enthusiasm for
president McKinley. It has been a center of McKinley sentiment all through
his public career, and there was no city
rn the country where friendship and devotion for him was more marked. Naturally his tragic ending while our guest
depressed the city beyond expression.
The most impoitant development in the
Czolgosz. case today was "the announcement that no poison had been found in
the bullets of the revolver with which
the anarchist killed president McKinley. Chemical and bacterological examinations were made, and both revealed tne
fact that no poison was used by the murderer. *
Dan Johnson, who:is working at tha
Second Relief mine, 12 miles southwest
of Erie, is in Nelson. He says that,
everything at the mine is iu good shape
for working, but that the mill cannot
be started up until several pieces of
shafting arrive.

WILLEMSTADT, Island of Curacoa,
September 22.—-It is current rumor that
the Colombians have captured and shot
general Echeverria. Inquiries seem to
'show that he was born in Baranquilla,
and was a Colombian. If shot, it was because he was a native who had aided foreigners to invade Colombia. There is no*
doubt that he was the commander of
the Venezuelan gunboats lately cruising
before La Hacha and Guajera.

Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Irvine returned

Politicians of the Smith Curtis brand
talk much of the "betrayal of principles"
by -men like Joseph-Martin and J. C.
Brown. What principles have either Martin or Brown betrayed? As far-as The
Tribune can find out, J. C.-'Brown was
elected on his'individual merits in 4900,
his political principles*being well known
to  the  electors . of  New* -Westminster.
Joseph Martin was elected In,Vancouver,* the electors • of that- city knowing
full well all,about Joseph'and his,pnn-
i ciples. Both were pledged to the con-
i structionJ of a railway' from th.^coast
fto  Kootenay  as -a. government' under-
staking, and the .building of. that road
■ seems to be the only principle or-issue
, in (which the people oi ihe'coast'are in
any way mteresited. Neither Martin' nor
■Brown have changed front^on that is-
'Sue. Neither has been in-a-position to
' begin the, work as a public undertaking,

-   But let us see low Smith Curtis has
"betrayed his principles." He was elected'
to the legislature as a Martinite, -"and,'
like, Martin ancf Brown, was pledged "to
build the-Coast tb Kootenay railway as,
,a' government   undertaking.   But   not-'
withstanding -bis advocacy on the stump
|of that principle,, the, bulk of" the campaign, fund spent to elect 'him to -the
(legislature was,- it is said, furnished by-
•the Great Northern Railway Company.
.The legislature met and Smith ^Curtis,
ftvas rampant on the question'bf government ownership3 of railways, he know-',
ting. full * well' that the government was-
•not then' in -a position to declare its1
.railway    policy.    The' legislature , adjourned. Four months afterwards Smith
,Curtis 'had 'changed front. He was "no,
.!longer_clamoring__or_t_ ejmilding of_theY
Coast to Kootenay railway by the government,   but  was .advocating  tliat  a
,subsidy be granted by- the.province to
.'the iV. V. & E., one of the companies
ithat had a charter for building a road
from the coast to Kootenay,' and today
,he is one of the loudest shouters in the
V. V. & E. subsidy-hunting camp. If this
is not a "betrayal of principles on the
part of Smith Curtis, what is it?

In what way did either Joseph Martin
or J. C. Brown betray the principles adr
.ocated by workingmen, a class whose
special champion Smith Curtis sets himself up to be? The Journals of the legislative assembly do not show that Martin
and Brown have been inconsistent when
labor legislation was up for consideration. The question might be asked, what
has Smith Curtis ever done, in or out of
the< legislature, for the woiking-men?,
Has he been instrumental in securing
the passage of legislation that has, in
any way, benefited men who work for
(wages? Has he given employment, 'at,
'union wages, to any number of men at
any time since coming to British Columbia? If so, when and where?    v

nothing whatever to (to with any action
the attorney-general took in the cases
growing out of the strike at Rossland.
Then, is it not a trifle inconsistent for
a Trades and Labor Council to boast of
having helped to secure the defeat of a

in protest against the 'action of attorney-general Eberts, in'order to advance'
Ithe. political lortunes  of Richard Mc-'

The Rossland World is authority for
the statement that the Trades and Labor
Council of that place helped to bring
about-the defeat of J. C. Brown in New
Westminster because of the action that
attorney-general Eberts took in sending troops to maintain order at Steveston ' during tbe fishermen's strike, and
because attorney-general Eberts refused
to employ counsel at Rossland to prosecute cases under the Alien Labor Act.
Is not such an attitude a trifle inconsistent? J. C. Brown was not in a position
to in any way interfere with any action
that D. M. Eberts took as attorney-general. He was not a member of the government during the ___her_aen's strike,

Workingmen should not be misled by
.cries of "betrayal of principles," raised
■by such men as Smith Curtis. The cry
of "betrayal of principles," when raised
by professional politicians is much like
the cry of "Stop thief," when raised by
professional pickpockets. It is only
raised to throw people who ate being
plundered off their guard. .
The' British army, is, said to have become worn' out and stale by the prolongation of the Boer war in South Africa.
That is a sorry admission to make. If
British soldiers had become worn out

empire would not be in existence today.

John Hay, who is now secretary of  state in Roosevelt's cabinet, in the biography which he wrote in collaboration"  with John C. Nicolay, gives a graphic  account of the assassination of Abraham  Lincoln at Foi-d's theatre on April 14th,.  18C5. He was at that time an assistant  1 "secretary and aide-de-camp to Lincoln.  He 'writes:  ���  "Lincoln-was fond of the theatre; it  was ono of his few means of recreation.  f Besides the town was thronged with soldiers and officers,,all eager to see him;  it was represented that appearing occasionally in public would gratify many  I, people  whoin   ho  could  not  otherwise  ['meet. Mrs. Lincoln had asked geneial  'and Mrs. Grant to accompany them; they  had   accepted,   and   the  announcement  that they would be present' was made  as an advertisement in the evening papers,  but they changed their minds and  went north by an afternoon tiain   Mrs.  Lincoln then invited in their stead Miss  i Han is and major Henry R. Rathbone,  the daughtor-and stepson of senator Ira  Harris,  The pi esident's carriage' called  for  these young peopie, and the foiu  went to the theatio togethei. The president had been detained by visitors, and  the play had made somo progress. When  he appeared m the box, the band struck  up 'Hail to the Chief,' the actors ceased  playing and the audience rose,'cheering  tumultuously;   the  pies-dent  bowod^ in  ackonwledgment of this greeting and the  play went on."      i '    . . -"   -  John  Wilkes  Booth,  an  actor,  of a  family  of  famous players, ascertained  the <pi esident's ��� intention -. of-, attending  the theatre in the evening, and with a  number of confederates, planned to take  the life of the president '[,'''     s'  He was perfectly at home in' Ford's  theatre, wheie he was gieatly liked by  all  the employees  .without other *-rea-  son than the sufficient one of his youth  '  and  good'*- looks.

He shoved  a card to a servant m attendance and  was allowed to pass m. lie cntcied noi_o-  lesfaly, and, turning, iasten.d the d_o'  vith the bar he had piaviously r_���_c  icady, without distuibing any of the occupants ol tbe box, between whom .inn  innis-li -there yeL remained tho sli_h!  paitit'on and the door through which  ho had bored the whole. Then eyes were  fixed upon the stage, the play was "Om  American Cousin," the original version  by Tom Taylor, before Sothern had made  a now work of it by his. elaboration of  the pait of Dundreary. 'Partizan hate  and the fumes of branny had lor weeks  kept his mind in a morbid  state.  lie  ielt as if he were playing Buitus of the  boards;   he  posed,  expecting applause.  Holding a pistol jn one hand and a knife  lju the other, he opened tbe box door,  I put tho pistol to tho president's head,  land fired; dropping the weapon he took  Ithe knife in his right hand, and when  [major Rathbone  sprang to seize him,  lhe struck savagely at him. Major Rath-  Jbonc received the blow on his left arm.

It was a  [high leap, but nothing io such a trained  ���athlete 'Ho would have got safely away  |but for his spin  catching on the folu.  of tho union flag with **yhich the fio_t  -f the box was draped.

The cry wont out:  "H_ has chot  Iho prosident" From tho audience, at  fi_t stupid with surprise, and afterward.  *.ild  with e__ei-emcrit and horror, t_o  tr-.three men jumped on the stage ii  |u*rsuit of the flying assassin;  but he  lan    through    the    familiar    passage-,  leaped upon his horse, which was waiting m the alley bo hind, rewarded wilh  kick and curse the call boy who L.d  Jield him, and rode rapidly away in the  |tght of the just risen moon.  __Jter JiP was shot, president Lincoln  scarcely moved;  his_head dropped forward slightly, his eyes closed.       -   -  Major Rathbone, at first not regarding 'his own grievous' hurt, rushed to'  the door of the box to summon aid.    He  tound it barred,   and   .u   the   outside  someone was beating and clamoring for  entrance.   He opened the 'door; a-young  officer named Crawford entered; one or  two army surgeons soon-followed,-'who  hastily examined the wound.   It was at  once seen to be mortal.    It  was  afterward ascertained that a large derringer  bullet had entered the back of the,head,  on the left side, and,'passing'through the  brain, had lodged,just behind the/left  eye.   By   direction -of   Rathbone   and  Crawford, the ������ president was carried ��tb  a house across the street, and .laid upon  a'bed'in a smaH'ioom at the rear bf tne  hall, on the ground floor . . . The president had been shot a few minutes past  ten.,  The wound   would   have   brought  instant death to most men, but his vital  .tenacity, was extraordinary.., He was, of  course, unconscious from the flrst moment;  but he-breathed with slow and  regular respiration throughout the night.  As the dawn came, and the lamp-light  grew pale m the fresher beams, his pulse  began to fail, but his face even then was  scarcely moie haggard than those of tne  sorrowing group of statesmen and generals around him.   His automatic moaning, which had continued throughout the  night, ceased;   a  look  of   unspeakable  peace came upon his worn features.   At  'twenty-two minutes past seven he died.  -,Stanton bioke the  silence ' by - saying:  "Now ho belongs to the ages." Dr. Gur-  ley kneeled by the bedside and piayed  fervently.'
