In fact, some of the  Boers here are even destitute, and all  oi them agree that Mr. Kruger has  scarcely enough for himself.

J. .Cassatt,  -president of the-^Pennsylvania'.Ra.lfoafl'  Company, has demanded of George  Gould .-to surrender the Wabash system  and the "Wheeling  & Lake  Erie at a  price which will net a profit' to the  Goulds, under threat of cutting*off the  whole of the Western-Union telegraph  lines from the entire Pennsylvania railroad system, as well as from the Vanderbilt-lines, 'which agreed to the deal.  This is a threat that means a war great-  ver than any that has ever taken* place  in this country, and is comparable only  with that of the^Beech Creek and South  Pennsylvania, in 1885, which resulted  in the abandonment <._. these lines except as built, which were swallowed up  by the Vanderbilts and the Pennsylvania. The penalty means that the Western Union will suffer the greatest blow  in its history, and will lose many of its  profitable lines, which will be turned  over to its great rival, the Postal Telegraph- Company.-This~ultimatunfTmeans"  more than any other railway deal in the  history of the country. It is believed  that the Goulds will accede to the demand, and that the Pennsylvania will  not only add 3000 noncomitant miles  to Its trackage, but will also get rid of  a* rival foi the Carnegie steel business,  which is the largest factor in* the whole  matter, lesulting from a contract made  by Mr. Carnegie with the Wheeling &  Lake before the United States Steel  Corporation was formed, and to carry  out which the Goulds were trying to  build a line into Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.  Sifton Murder Trial.  LONDON, Ontario, September 24.���  The trial of Gerald Sifton for tho murder of his father was begun here today.  On June 30th the Siftons and their farm  lauorers weie engaged in putting up a  hay fork in their bar<p. The crown says  John Sifton was struck on the head with  an axe and the body placed so as it  would appear ho had fallen. The defense says he did fall. The elder Sifton  intended marrying again, and this is  said to have furnished the motive for  the murder.  At the afternoon session of the court,  Herbert took the stand and swore that  Sifton had told him the morning of the  murder that he intended killing his  father, and that if he would assist him  he would give him ?300O. When the old  man was coming through the trap door  in the barn, Herbert hit him on the  head with an axe. Then he became disheartened and threw the axe down. Sifton picked it up and struck his father  several blows. Then the body was 'let  fall through an opening in tne side of  i_e barn and things fixed so it would  appear that the deaui was accidental  through the fall. Herbert's story cai-  ried conviction with it.

The Enforcing Officials Discharged..  VANCOUVER, : September' 24.���The  ' Dominion government ,has put the. ki-  bosh on the -provincial immigration, inspection department, and all the officials  employed'to keep track of the Chinese  and Japanese will shortly end their oi-  ficial lives, for'the order/has gone forth  from * the provincial secretary's office  in Victoria.    >  When the Dominion cabinet di.allowed' the provincial legislation in con-  nectiont with the entrance of Chinese  and Japanese -into British Columbia,  the official notice was sent to Victoria  Since vthat time it has been daily expected * that the Victoria 'authorities  would abolish the department bf immigration and the sword has fell on at  least three heads.  Owing to the policy of the imperial  government, it was considered inconsistent, by the foreign office that legislation inimical to the empire of Japan  _should-bc-allowed-to-hold-sway-in-the  province of British Columbia, and ac-  coraingly the Dominion government was  so notified. Owing to the friendly relations of Great Britain with Japan the  legislation could not stand, and at the  same time the anti-Chinese immigration laws fell also.  Tho provincial immigration affairs in  Vancouver have been looked after by  inspector Angus McAllister, aud W. T.  Cooksley has been the ruling spirit in  New Westminster, but he has generally  been guarding the boundary line In the  vicinity of Blaine. In Victoria the department 13 rcpiesented by W. l\. Ellis,  formerly business manager of the Colonist.  Inspector McAllister has received  notification from the provincial secretary' that all offices created under the  piovincial act would be abolished as the  Dominion government had vetoed the  legislation. As soon as reports from inspectors can be submitted and affairs  closed up, the inspectors will become ordinary citizens once more and the Chinese and Japanese may come and go as  they please.

Whitney from the English turr occasions re-,  gret, but is hardly surprising to those*  who have noted the recent trend of.  events. Thero is a widespread field behind Mr. Whitney's published reasons,  for his withdrawal is the realization ot  the fact that the attitude of the British  turf authorities towards Americans is  no longer marked by absolute impartiality. During the last season complaints  have been frequent that the American  horses were too heavily handicapped,  that jockeys were harshly treated, and  that interferences during the race were  whitewashed when they would not have  been tolerated on the part of the American jockeys. It will cause no "surprise  if other Americans of Mr: Whitney's  class follow the; latter's example, which  it is noted came closely after the receipt of a detailed report of the treatment accorded to Volodyovskl in the St  Leger. Mr. Whitney's action appears  .to have taken Higgins, his trainer, by  surprise.

The people of the province  havo not made the request through the  ballot-box.

I am bound to say that n little humbug goes a long -way in the early days  of a medical career, said a family doctor with a largo suburban practice; and  although, of course, I cannot pretend to  defend it, I found it most useful in giving me" a start.  When I began my career, nearly 30  years ago I was not only without -.the  necessary money to buy a practice) but  I was already a married man. Undeterred by this double handicap, I took  a house in what, after careful inquiry,  I considered to be a promising, suburb,  affixed a brass plate^to my door, and prepared to receive patients. ,       "  For three months-not a single patient  came my way; there were already two  doctors in the fleld, who divided between  tli cm all the practice there was; and, as  my exc_.ee*. tier was dwindling to the  vanishing point I saw that it was quite  time to form a new plan of campaign.  The, following Sunday the congregation of our"fashionable church was disturbed by the appearance of a small'boy,  who rushed panting up the aisle and  spoke a few hurried words to me. I  snatched my hat, and with a'look'-of  great concern en my face, hurried* out  of the church followed by the eyes of  half the congregation. '   -  The following night the neighbors  were disturbed twice by a furious knock-  --ing on my cioor, and" a few minutes  later -those who furtively raised the  blind might of seen me rush blindly out  into the streefin the direction, presumably, of a patient-, in ,the extremis. > If  their vision had been less restricted  they would have seen my pace-moderate  rfter I had turned '_he"corner of the  street, and within five minutes *I had  smuggled myself quietly into the house  again by the back enhance. -���   *  An evening or two later I had volun-  teered--to**give'a lecture on "A'Sound  Mind in a Healthy-Bod:*"-to the local  debating society. .The hour of the meeting came, but no' lecturer with it. A  cuarter of an-hour, half an hour, passed, and the small audience, which had  shown exemplary,, patience,-/was beginning to grow ,ve_ y restless and to, say  uncomplimentary things, when the lecturer rushed into the room, red, panting, and prespiring, and 'full of apologies for his inevitable unpunctuahty,  which I modestly hinted* was  clue to "an urgent professional summons."  Before the end of the week* it be. an  to be whispered that the "new doctor  was a coming man;" that doctors    and   would soon find their occupation gone if I progressed at this rate,  and so on. - *  The sudden calls and imperious ia_-  tats on my door grew-more frequent,  although, of course, I arranged them d p  _lomatically,_and_did_notjiv_e^di)__tl*^_thija2_  ���and within a toitnigh_'I had secured  no tower than thiee bona i*de patiert.  At this stage, although I could in afford the risk, I purchased a b_o__h_.__  (with    borrowed    money),    engaged   a  showy coachman, and put my boy "in  buttons."   Within a week, I can assure  y-u, there was net a soul in the place  who    was    net    familiar    with    both  uroughani and boy.  All day long ray carriage was cither  standing at my door, a*va.tiiiT my eo_i-  irg, or being driven at a biisk ar . v. y  business-like pace over every road in the  district. In fact, I gave my coachman ro  little rest that I had fivo of thorn in six  months.  Of course the rapid growth of my  practice v/as tho gossip of every drawing-room and dinner-table, and I believe  some marvellous stories were invented  to account for it. All that I cared  to know was that my practice really  was growing in a most remarkable w.iv,  and that every day the need for bogus  calls was growing less.  Amid all my work, real and imaginary, I found time to attend a few really  poor and deserving people; and, as I  resolutely refused to receive a penny for  my services, you may be sure they wcic  uuited m singing my praises.  But the tide^of fortune began to flow  in earnest when one day the big man of  the district, a s_*br. ipg baronet, met with  a carnage accident,-<and I was summoned to the hall by a &room on horse  back who had failed to find either^of my  rivals- at home. Fortunately I created  a favorable impression on the great  man, and was soon able to put him on  his feet again. '  Then I had the place practically all  to myself, and my work grew so rapidly  that I was compelled to engage an assistant and" could afford to smile at my  past anxieties and artifices.  At the end of a year's practice I was  able to move into a much more imposing  house, was, free from debt, and 'was  making���Veil, a very comfortable income, which has never since fallen below  four figures. But really, if it had not  been for my little "humbug" at the-beginning, I am sure I should have had a  very different tale'to tell.

'  ' .   ��� i  A man* a   little  above   the  medium  .height, broad in shoulders," deep in chest',  ,with strongly marked, rugged features,  steel-gray eyes -and tawny nioustache,  would probably be the description of a  casual observer on the first 'sight of  George, Towns, the great Australian]  who has * succeeded in * wrestling the  sculling championship oi the world from  the giant Gaudaur. He has that swarthy  complexion characteristic of the subtropical or .tropical Anglo-Saxons and  ^his prevailing expression is one of modest self-reliance and reassuring frank-  _iess, modified by a somewhat reserved  dignity of manner which- reminds one  of a typical;globe trotting Englishman,"  who is first and forcmust a shrewd and  independent .-man of the ..world. "His  speech, too', smacks so emphatically of  the educated Cockney as^to load one.to  question his strictly colonial birtl*. and  breeding "and to inquire if, his youth  -had not'been spent in*-the-shadow"of  old St. Paul's.* Lastly,* and all'the time,'  he gives' one.,the impression" of being a  man of perfectly gentlemanly breeeding  and instincts, modest in _peech, moderate in> dres_s and* bearing and entirely  lacking'inv any trace.of affectation or  artificiality. In short he is a typical  Anglo-Saxon of the best stamp with the  natural repose of an English gentleman,  the open frankness of a westerner and  the sturdy- self-dependence of an Aus--  tralian. He is of purely English blood',  his father being a native-born Anglo-  Australian and his mother of English  birth, Jbut (of colonial training'from the  age of 9 years. * ���  Physically, he is most deceiving. Were  it not foi his sun-kissed complexion and  brown, muscular hands, the casual 'ob^  server might easily mistake him for a  bank clerk or professional man of gen-'  erous athletic propensities.

"We will be in Winnipeg about a  week," was the reply. "I d6 not know exactly the outcome of our negotiations  with Duinan, but I will be pleased to,  meet an oarsman of wnom I have heard  so many creditable stories. After rowing here we will go back east, visiting  Toronto, Ottawa, and Nfontreal en  route. I expect to sail for England from  Montreal about October 4th."       * '  "Canadians in general are pleased to  think that the championship is going to  Australia rather than anywhere eis_,"V  was a remark made to,Mr. Towns.  "Well, we colonials have had the lion's  share of championship honors"' in the  sculling line," replied the champion,  "and when it comes my turn to go  undor I will ask no better fate than to  be beaten by a Canadian, except, of  course, my own fe_low countrymen. I  am somewhat surprised that the great  American republic does not make a  bolder attempt at aquatic sports, especially sculling. They have never held the  single scull championship, though Teenier made a brave try for the place."  "Have you ever had what one might  call a model in sculling?" was asked.  "Searle was my ideal oarsman," was  the prompt reply. "He was only 23.  when he died, and had he lived I venture to say he would have been a past  master. As it was, he was a .marvel two'  or three years before his prime. Of  course, wo. naturally favor.:,our own'  countrymen. Probably a,Canadian would  say that Hanlan was an ideal, considering his time and circumstances, and  indeed he might hot be far out' now,"  added Towns, reflectively.    .

It is,> indeeed, more in keeping with  its < owner's, phyisque a than' his.-.exalted  position of autociat of \ all the Jtussias.  It is of rather less than medium size  and one critical observer"h<*s written it  down as a very weak vhand" The .fingers  are said not to show much in the way  of character,'although the czar is'not  without his strong points, even if they,  do not ooze out at the ends of his fiu-  gcis.       'i- "< ~/    J   '���s**  .George Washington was the possessor  of quite remarkable hands. ���. I  'They were not only of medium-size,  but the thumb was enormously large  .Washington was distinguished by-a  quiet, dignified demeanor in which his  rhand3 necessarily played a most incon-j  spicuous part. While never obtrusive,  _they__-espoke_of_consclousl,s.rength_and  of the enormous power, which theirs owner possessed with a modesty that was  almost unique.' '' ,'  The immoital Nelson had a very interesting hand ">  It was by no means a large one, and  may bo said to be in correct proportion  to his general physique, which as everybody knows was small    ' '  But his fingeis were indicative of that  extraordinary tenacity with which h_  'clung to the enemy until he had eithei  descroved or crippled him into surrender. Despite tho-,slonder frame, the hand  and arm which Nelson lost must have  been endowed with gieat strength. If  somo of the feats with which he was  credited with can be believed.  From Britain's gieat naval hero one  naturally, turns to her notable military  commander. It has been said that the  most remarkable features of the duke  of Wellington's hands were his" thumbs  Although there was nothing about them  that could be described as abnormal,  they were suggestive of great determination and an iron grip. Fingers, thumbs,  and knuckles indicated great strength,  and the hand^of Wellington can be best  summed up as the strong hand of a  strong man.  The late earl of Beaconsfleld had a  very good hand. It was rather undeif  than over the medium size,' with well  formed fingers, slender and of fair,  length.  Disraeli always took care of his hands  which, after all, have a great deal to do  with personal appearance.  Mr. Gladstone's hand was, like his  temperament, the very reverse of his  doughty opponents. Not that the G. O  M. was lacking in refinement, ambition,  or dogged determination. '  His was a big, broad, powerful hand,  as the dispatch boxes he was wont to  thump in the house of commons would  doubtless declare if they could only  speak.'  More than anything else, perhaps,  Gladstone's was the orator's hand.  The writer, has heard and.seen most  of the leading speakers of the period;  but hone who could make .a gesture with  the same dramatic effect as the late Liberal leader. *  The way in which he could, when  moved;' shake his hand at the opposition at Westminster was-* more expressive of - his impetuosity and; impatience  tnaii even'- tte-language which .ie em-   ���_._;  ;00.00��� ^SxyfS '"'^^'frn'StZ'tTt ' __i *^^*^*^*<^  ���^���^^���^���^���^^.^^j^*^^*^*8_T.*^V^N,  yi-fltj_:|  ���V-T^-a-.'

When the  -Grand^-Forks-police-were'-notifled-that-'  their.man was being held in this city,  it came out tnat the criminal law was  being, invoked for the purpose pf collecting an alleged debt for board, and  chief Jarvis received an intimation that  he might collect the amount of the account and allow the prisoner his liberty.  Chief 'Jarvis replied that he did not do  business in that way, and he in turn informed the Grand Forks police that they  had but an hour to make up their minds  whether they would send an officer over  for Green, and that failmg-to hear from  tnem within the time stated he would  set Green at liberty.   The Grand Forks  officials finally decided to come over for  the prisoner and he was therefore held.  If it should turn out that the case is  as it appears to be there will probably  be a "good sized damage   suit   against  someone/ as Green   claims to   have a  good defence. for   failing   to   pay   the  amount of his   account   before leaving  Grand Forks.  ' From, the   correspondence   that  captain Gifford of the Silver King mine has  -had   with  the   educational   department  over the stationing of a school teacher at  .the mine it is evident that there must  be spme scarcity of teaching, talent in  the provjnge.  The J^st communication  that captain Gifford b.4 tl'Qm the department was dated Septembgr i-th, }n  which he was given to understand that  he   might  expect  a  teacher  to  arrive  within the next ten days, The interval  mentioned has elapsed, but no/Word has  yet  been  received to intimate that a  teacher has been secured or that th.  mine iB any nearer the attainment of  th  educational   facilities  it  stands  bo  much in need of.  The disappointment  at the mine is very keenly felt for the  reason that since the report of the department's inspector was sent in several weeks ago the number of school  children at the mine has about doubled,  l-dward  H.   Lewis,   the   Trail   man  chaigea wi_h the theft of several sums  of money from the registered mail sack  .1 Trail, was formally d^areed before  _mgist-'*jto  Boultbee of Rossland  yesterday, si. t-ng $_ a. ���Justice of the peace  for the county yf (Spott-nt-ty, Lewis was  then admitted to" bail in f,he si^i of. $2000  to'appear on Monday for his 'preliminary trial.

A description of the man was  furnished, but no name.   Constable Forrester  .ecic}��d to go across tue river aii"d'  watch the arrival of the afternoon train  from Rossland and Trail.    It happened'  that provincial constable Young, of Nelson, was at the time on-his way to Rossland in connection with the Lewis case,  and Forrester decided,to post him so  that he could have his eye open.    In  hunting   around,    however,    Forrester  missed his return ferry  and he   found  -himself-on-t_.e-wrong-side-of-the~rivefr  He was then casting about to make up  his mind what he would do when a man  answering the description of the person,  wanted hove into sight.    By the time  l'orrester came up with him the Rossland train was moving out.   There was  no time for argument,   He grabbed his  man, rushed   him along the   platform,  and caught an open door in the baggage  car  through  which  tney  boarded  the  train.   Not wishing to make the trip to  Rossland    Forrester    rushed his    man  through the train till he found constable  Young.   He-turned him over to the Nelson constable who applied   the   handcuffs without a word.    Forrester then  jumped from the moving train and wired  the chief of police that his' man was on  the train and requested that he be taken  off at Smelter Junction.  The prisoner  had barely recovered his breath when  the Junction was reached. Chief Devitt  ,had not received the telegram but he  decided to go to Rossland and boarded  the  train  at  the  Junction.  The  train  was moving ahead again before Devitt  came upon Young and the prisoner. He  grabbed his man without so much as a  word and hustled him from the moving  train, since   which   time   nothing has  been heard concerning him.   Thus within a few mfnutes^the prisoner had found  himself arrested .and passed over tg two  other Qfll-erB, and the one transfer- followed so quickly upon th. other that the  prisoner had not sufficient time to frame  the slightest exouge or explanation of  his aotions,  ' Acting , under instructions from Ed.  ward .Cave-Browne Cave, the underf  signed jwill offer by public auction, at  rhis residence, corner of Hall arid Observatory streets, on    - .
