ESTABLISHED   1892  SATURDAY  MOK_S.Ds.G,  SEPTEMBER 28,  1901  DAILY EDITION  GOT A WESTERN WELCOME  DUCAL PARTY RECEIVED IN THE  TERRITORY CAPITAL.  Service Medals Presented to Twenty-  five of the Men Who Fought  in South Africa.  SWIFT CURRENT, September 27.���  The duke and duchess of York spent today on the great plains of Western Canada, and by tomorrow night will be in  tho Rockies. They rode over miles of  snow covered wheat farms and prairie,  in an air that had the chill of winter,  aud when they left their train for the  reception at Regina, the capital of the  Northwest Territories, were muffled in  |/ furs. Their special train left the province  of Manitoba in the night and swung into the territory of Assinaboine. Regardless of weather the people gathered at  the stations to oifer the welcome of  western cheers to the royal guests. The  widely separated stations were all flag-  draped, and each town made a liberal  display of bunting. As the train proceeded westward an increasing number  of Indians appeared in the crowds at the  stations.  Rogina was reached at noon and a  stop of three hours w. s made. Lieutenant-governor Forget and premier Haultain, and the delegation of offlceis and  leading citizens met the train, and escorted by a detachment of famous mounted police, the duke and duchess, the  countess of Minto, premier Laurier, and  the staff were driven to Government  House. In replying to the addresses pre-  . sented to him the duke said in part:  "Contrasting the free, healthy, and useful life which is found in this ___atry  / with the narrow and often too unwholesome existence of thousands in our great  cities at home, one cannot help wishing  that the , prospects here offered ��� were  more^ widely known, and more freely  taken advantage of."  Service medals were presented ,to "25  men.who fought in South Africa, and  as the' line filed past the duke of ,Rox-  1)orough and viscount Crichton recognised in sergeant-major Church, of the  mounted j)oH��s-w art^-old soldier- and  friend, of'the Royal'Horse Guards.-'As  lie handed Church"his medal the duke  of Cornwall congratulated him on his  long service.,  The party lunched at Government  House, and .at 3 o'clock drove back to  the train. At the station the'duke'called  se-.gcant Richardson from the ranks of  the mounted police and, congratulated  him on winning the Victoria Cross in  South Africa. Richardson served with  Strathcona's Horse, and rescued a wounded comrade, under a heavy fire. The  .hike also praised the .mounted police  on their efficiency and excellent work.  The town of Moosejaw was reached  at 5 o'clock, and the royal special made  a brief stay. The city formally .welcomed' the duke and duchess, and the  school children sang patriotic songs.  A stop of several hours will be made tomorrow at Calgary.   Green_Hands_Have_Mishaps.   songers, which is the record for the season. Crowds of people aro coining out  from Dawson, and 200>n_ore were to have  arrived at Skagway on the day that the  Seattle left for the south. The steamer  had $300,000 worth of gold. Among the  best known passengers was consul Mc-  Cook of Dawson, who is on his way to  Washington to confer with the government. He will probably stay out all winter. Much excitement is reported in Atlin on account of the discovery of what  is believed to be the" mother lode of the  district. Six. cases of smallpox are reported from Dawson. The steamer Glen-  ora, which sailed from Wrangle last  spring, has leached Dawson by way of  St. Michaeis.  A  GHAT WITH   DEWDNEY  EARLY   MINING RECOLLECTIONS  IN THE INTERIOR.  The Ex-Governor Relates the Circumstances Connected With the Fa- *  mous Dewdney Trail.  One Paper Has Hope.  LONDON, September 27.���The Pall  Mall Gazette is practically alone in  thinking that the American experts are  easily satisfied if they are already convinced that the Columbia is the better  boat. The paper's comment is-probably  based on the conclusions of its own cor-,  respondent's long acount of the race,  which commences: "Columbia did much  to shatter Lipton's hope yesterday,"  and concludes: "The day's sailing did  not suggest anything that Shamrock  will not win in a good breeze. I'think  she will."  WIRED' NEWS BOILED DOWN  ROSSLAND, September 27.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���Henry Bratnober has  come back again from Spokane, and It  is said he has had some conferences  with union men here and at Northport,  lout nothing has been given out for publication. Frecheville is expected to  reach Rossland tomorrow or on Sunday,  and until his arrival nothing will be  done openly towards a settlement of the  strike. Edward Williams, the Ottawa  labor man, has been busy all day with  the question of the employment of alien  laborers by the Le Roi mines, but he  has not taken any open step in the matter beyond questioning some of the late  arrivals from the south; The : green  hands employed at the Le'Roi continue  to get* into trouble at the mine. Yesterday a carman sent a car of waste rock  over the end of the tramway and it landed on the Josie road beneath,' a wreck.  Today about 1:30 at the same spot another car was sent to its destruction,  and this 'time two- of the .new hands  .-were in charge of it. There have been  no defections in the union ranks, outside of Frank French, mentioned early  in the week, and the union leaders pro-  less themselves as satisfied with the  progress of events during the week.  They claim that several matters are  coming into shape which do not appear  in the daily papers. .  ��� - ',  Boundary Ore Shipments.

Reiff), Williarn  C. Whitney's Belasy (L. Reiff) was second, and Frank Gardner's Sand Piper  PRINCETON, .September 25.���Forty-  two years ���- ago there arrived at Yale,  then the principal town on the Fraser  river a young Englishman by the name  of Edgar Dewdney, who was destined  to become, an important'factor in the  upbuilding of Canada's most western  province. At that time the mainland of  British Columbia was an independent  crown colony, governed by Mr. (afterwards sir) James Douglas,' who was also  chief factor of the Hudson's Bay Company. Little was known of thi3 wonderful country, except that for years.previous it contributed largely to the commerce of the Old World in the shape of  raw furs.' It was inhaDited'by roaming'  bands of warlike Indians, with here and  there a solitary trading post, in charge,  of a factor, and a few courageous hunters, trappers, and adventurers who  knew no law except that administered,  when necessity arose, hy the representative of the" trading company.  Then, as if by magic, the news spread  far and wide that gold had been found  and in a few months a steady stream'of  humanity came pouring into the new Eldorado. The fall of '59 saw hundreds'  of prospectors cradling the'sands'of the  Similkameen and Tilameen rivers. -The  necessity at^once arose for' means o"f  communication between the numerous"  camps on these rich streams and Yale  and Victoria," the supply" points. Be-*  tween stood the frowning- and at thatj  time nearly impassable Hope range. t A"  trail had to be made' and governor  Douglas in the spring of 1860 let a^con-  tract to young Dewdney ;for( the construction of 65 miles of a four-foot trail,  from Hope across the mountains to Vermilion Forks���the junction of the Similkameen and Tulameen, rivers���now'the  site of the thriving-town of-Princeton.  For over forty years this-trail has been  in continuous use,"-__.il''now:the;growth*  and development'of ~ the/southern portion of the province "warrants the building of a direct line of railway connecting the towns and camps of the Kootenays, Boundary, and Similkameen, with  the cities of the coast. The first step,  with this end in view, -was inaugurated  by the government placing in the field  this summer a party of engineers to locate a feasible pass for such ? a road  across the Hope mountains. The man  to take charge and conduct this highly  important, though arduous undertaking,  was found in the pioneer surveyor and  trail-blazer Edgar Dewdney. The ex-  governor���for his sterling _ worth- and  ambition has made him the' recipient of  many high offices in the gift of the"  crown���though now in his 67th year is  still as active and fit for duty as when  he undertook his initial contract of trail  building in the early history of the  colony.  Camped down at the old Allison  homestead yesterday evening I found  -the-governor-after-eoming���in- from���a-  hard day's work in the hills. He had  just finished his frugal evening repast,  and leaving the pots and pans to be  cleaned by his packer he invited me  into his tent. "Well, I declare you  newspapermen are always hunting, for  news," was his genial opening remark,  after I had introduced myself and  stated my errand. "But," and he hesitated for a minute, "you must remember I am in'the employ of the government, so cannot consistently tell you  about the survey." I felt rather discouraged, but ventured to ask him for  a story of his pioneer days, the days of  the 60's, in fact something, anything to  make copy. "Ah, that is something I  can tell you about!',' and his. kindly eyes  twinkled amusingly as his thoughts carried him back again to the period I was  most anxious to learn of. Fixing himself comfortably on a large buffalo robe,  the governor told the following j narrative. -*'���  "The winter of '60-61 was one of the  hardest the old timers had experienced,  and those of us living on the coast, entertained fears that the miners along  the Similkameen would suffer' for-lack  of provisions.    The impression, was. so  ��� strongly founded that early in February '61.1 was dispatched to investigate  ��� the situation. I made the lonely trip  across the mountains ,on snow-shoes  only to find that those -wintering; oh the  river had,no'.cause for complaint;! This:  ���I reported to governor Douglas, who  thanked: me for the information, at the  same time, it brignated in .his mind the  . idea of constructing a wagon road across  the Hope: mountains  to  facilitate  the  ��� shipment of supplies to ��� the camps so  that the possibility of a famine in future years might be avoided. That.  spring witnessed the rush of over two  thousand:miners to tbe placer diggings  at Rock creek The needs of a wagon  road at once became evident if the trade  was not to be lost to Victoria merchants,  who were then clamoring for easy access to that camp and the Similkameen.  Backed by the popular demand gover-  no. Douglas set about to build the  wagon road. I secured a contract for  the first nine mllos,.* starting up the  western slope from Hope. The royal engineer corps under colonel Moody, surveyed and built the next sixteen mifes.  In all twenty-five miles of a splendid  road were constructed -when the placer  mines at Rock Creek worked out, and  I j�� their j>lacp <3aj_jl.pp> -pas struck.   Tp  this day not a wagon has ever been over  the road.  "Three years later, in '64, Wild Horse  creek, in East Kootenay was discovered.  The reports of enormously rich dirt  soon reached the coast, and a veritable  stampede set in. Goods and supplies for  the diggings were taken in principally  from Lewiston and Fort' Colville, at that  time an old Hudson's Bay trading post.  Our ovpi people, disgusted at not being  able to secure the trade except by send-,  ing supplies -through American territory, and either resorting to blockade  running with its attendant liability of  seizure and confiscation, or by paying'  an official $4 per day and grub to-convoy the pack trains through, urged upon  governor Frederick (Seymour the' importance of building a direct trail 'on  British soil., ', ,        .     '.   ,'  "In March,   1864J  governor   Seymour  instructed 'me to' go to New Westmin-,  ster. I had just finished the inspection  of the old Spence's bridge, across'the  Frasor,  and  hastened  to  comply 'with  'his request.' .The audience, I remember,  was a^ decidedly brief one. He explained  what1 was wanted and asked me, if I  would undertake to bulid such a trail.  I agreed to on condition that I should  choose my own assistants and be'left  with a free hand. This he readily consented, and with letters of credit in my  pocket I hurriedly set oif for Fort Hope.,  There I picked up several old time-expired ' Royal Engineers, one of whom,  George Turner, is now in ,the ofiice of  the Dominion public works at the,Royal  City. With the assistance of��� 18 Indians  to pack our "supplies we, started,'across  the Hope range and in a few days struck  this same, camping "ground. At that'time  the���only "white*settler in the Similkameen valley was'J. F. Allison.*With him  I arianged for saddle and pack horses  and ithe actual work*of blazing for*a_  trail  eastward-was started.        ''."'."  .-  ."Down th'e. valley as far as Richter's  pass we followed' a well worn Indian  trail, necesitating little work. En route  below  the   townsite  of  Keremoos- we  passed .a  Hudson's-Bay  trading  post.  .Crossing  the-divide .we  came-out  on  Osoyo6s,lake, where judge Hanes made  his 'headquarters in administering justice  and .colle'ctingy-her majesty's' cus-"  'toms 'dues.' The'nature of the, country  as far'east as Eholt's' ranch���now Mid-  < way��� on the Kettle/,rivei, was "mostly5  rolling'-hills' and' valleys  heavily cov-  sercd ,-with tall - bunch grass. Many In-,  diaru^ made that,section their��� hunting  ground,"for/deer and other'game" was"  -plentiful':.--Rock' Creek  was 'already  a  ^deser,ted camp,-except for a few'China-  -men.,",,'', , -        > -  ���' "East from'Eholt's ranch the trail followed 'the meanderings of , Boundary'  'icreeYk.ycrossings oyer-' tb the.- north fork,  ~6_:-the'>K_ttle**--_V-_. Om.rea.__.ing 'this'  creek" I decided'to explore due east and  came out at the Arrow . dices. I found thi3  route to be out of the 'way, being too  far north, so returned" and continued  down the stream .to the Kettle river���  where the amalgamated cities of Grand  Forks and Columbia now. stand. The  Kettle river was followed to Christina  lake; thence eastward across Norway  mountain to the head of' Sheep creek,  down ��he valley below.the wonderful  city of Rossland to the Columbia river,  Between Christina lake and the Columbia was one of the most difficult sections,  on account of the dense undergrowth  and fallen timber. To clear this out for  the passage 'of the pack train required  many hard days labor. Arriving at the  Columbia���there being.no ferry���we all  swam across.  "At Fort Sheppard, an important  trading post of the Hudson's Bay Company, in charge of an eccentric old  -gentleman���by��� the-^name-of]-Hardisty,-  we re-outfitted and divided the force.  Taking a canoe manned by Colville Indians, I decided to explore the great  lakes. The other party continued on  eastward blazing a trail via the \Pend  d'Oreille and Salmon rivers across the  range down to Kootenay lake, crossing  at Goat river. Here 'I afterwards met  them.  "Meanwhile I went up the Columbia  river to the mouth of the Kootenay river,  which was followed up by making 14  portages to Kootenay lake. I crossed the  lake to its east shore,- landing at what  is now called Pilot Hay. The Indians  named it Chicamoon mountain, meaning money..mountain,, from which they  obtained' lead for bullets.- I thought at  first that a steam ferry service could bo  established, but on account of the distance to bring in material and machinery from the Coast to build the same,  the idea was abandoned.-'When coming  down the west side of the lake after ex-  aiming- the north end. at a point  where Ainsworth camp, is, we were surprised1 to find a white' man. He was  standing on the shore - industrioualy  showing a crowd of Iridian'children how  to shoot with a bow and arrow.'! turned  the canoe towards shore and-hailed him.  He toldyme his namey/was pick Fry,, the  first prospector to find gold on the Pend  :d'Oreille river. - He was practically living in exile, having fled; with his Indian  wife, from the vengeance of a tribe of  Indians, who had a few months .previous, massacred a'small "party of miners, but thrqughY, the; ;agency of his  squaw���a woman of their tribe���had  spared his life. In after, years. Fry, with  the Hall boys, discovered the Hall mine,  above Nelson. Before leaving he showed  me over the hot springs and exhibited  several specimens of rich galena float.  "Continuing my canoe journey south,  I struck Goat creek and the balance of  the party. The march was again taken  up, heading northeast for Moyie lake  and across St. Joseph's prairie; now  Cranbrook, to Wild Horse creek, our  destination.  "The diggings proved to be rich, over  a million at that time Having been  taken out, and a typical Bret Harte  mining camp had sprung up at the  mouth of the creek, some years later  the place was named Fort Steele, after  colonel Steele, how in South Africa,  who had come into the country in charge  of a company of the/Northwest Mounted  police to quell an incipient Indian uprising. B-  "The arrival of the party was entirely  unexpected and elicited the hearty ap-  pioval of the Britishers, for you must  remember it was the most remote and  inaccessible portion of the colony. Law  and order was maintained by a vigilance committee, who were responsible  for the protection of life and property  and^ the settlement of numerous disputes.  "Having blazed the route of the proposed trail I at once set about to build  it. In camp I had no difficulty in securing 65 men under the able leadership  of William Fernie, years after the discoverer of the famous Crow's Nest coal  measures. I had'made'up my mind Ion  leaving Osoyoos lake that the easiest  and most convenient route, lay' near the  international boundary line, and accordingly had followed this idea out'where-  ever practicable. Fernie took charge of  the construction westward to Kootenay  lake. Other parties I placed at work at  different points, so that by September,  or seven months,from the time the survey started from Hope, the trail was  completed and the merchants of the  coast were sending in supplies by long  pack "trains, through British territory,  a distance of some'500 miles That trail  cost the colony ?74,0Q0 in gold dust, but  vit opened up to civilization and development the richest heritage in the pos-1  .session of the British empire," he concluded. * ��� . ������  When I arose to, bid him'good-night,  the camp fire had burnt low and it was  dark outside the tent. I wended-my way  hack to Princeton wondering that after  all the hardships he had endured pioneering in what was -literally " a 'sea of  mountains" that the governor was so  hale and hearty. Yet he assured -me'on  parting that he was,hale and fit and  long'ere sun-up, he would'be journeying acioss the Hope range tb inspect  the work of his engineers on the Coqui-  halla nvfer.

NEW YORK,' Septemuer 27.���From an  ���authentic source it was learned today  that there was a very strong feeling on  the part of captain Sycamore and those  in charge of ShamrocK at what they  call crowding of Shamrock at the start  yesterday by captain Barr. "If he is going lo continue these tactics, there will  bo serious trouble," said the writer's  informant. 'What he-did:'yesterday*  would not be tolerated for" an instant  in British waters. HeJ must not'expect  ais to stand it, and wewon't. Our relations with the New York Yacht Club  and-with, the principals in this event  have been so extremely pleasant that it  is to be hoped that one man's action will  ,not be permitted to marr them."  Sir Thomas said to an Associated  Press correspondent today: "While yesterday's race was not at all a fair test  of Shamrock's speed, I was very, well  satisfied with' what she did. What we  want is a good .strong breeze from the  northwest, or any other quarter for that  matter, -but,plenty of it, arid then I'm  sure the Shamrock-will give a good account of. herself. We are all-very-well  pleased at the manner in which the  course'was kept clear. It could not have  been better done, and I hope it will be  so throughout all the races." Captain  Sycamore and his crew overhauled the  Shamrock's sails this morning.  English Press Foresee Defeat.  LONDON, September 27.���Sir Thomas  Lipton. this morning cabled to his  friends here, "Am very hopeful;" but  the feeling is not reflected by public  opinion, which foresees defeat for  Shamrock II. in her races with Columbia  for the America's cup. The afternoon  papers similarly derive scant comfort  from the stories of yesterday's contest.  As the St. James Gazette points out, in  spite of all suggestions that the conditions prevent accurate judgment, of the  comparative merits of the two yachts,  "the plain facts stands out that under a  condition of weather which was ��� the  same for both, the,American boat,got  a good bit nearer the winning line than  ours."      ;������'���''���-���'���- ��� ,       /.".'  property/,  to determine }whether^.the'ffindJ consti- -.V*^r|  tutes a new ledgeJ��or''is'-si__ply'i-a''cbn- '"'/..'-!"  tinuation" of. the '/main i.Ymir". ledge'//,'"  through new. gro_pdJ"-;,^Vorl_<on this.dis1/-'-,--"  covery is?now going",on.- y ' * ''y^.i"'.'"-��� ���  -The returns'which are "now being pub-,;'..'!  j-lished by,'the*Hall Mining &'.Smelting 7 -;Ji?_  ' Company/as*-to th'e shipments<'from/the-^-"-i*-*0'  Silv.eriI<Jngrmine-beai^T3ut''the'5brig^estr<;~';-^  piedictions of captain oifford that- when.-'���'^  the returns ofvthe*ore^now being_ship-^'*-jj  ped from the property were published 'Z^_  they would 'show,that a. much higheri^-a-g)  giade of ore is now being mined*than ' */j J  any ^previously shipped from the.prop- l'j8��jf  erty.< The latest returns available''areV:^i  those for, the four weeks ,ending /Aug-" 0��,  ust 26th, and they show that durlng'this t&$qm  period there were shipped from the mine -"\.jg*-*%L  2586.tons of ^re, which returned an av- ^ .f^nfl'-'l  emee value of 2162 ounces silver &n&7$:&M.\\  '4.75 per cent copper.

September 26���John  Schneider, a prisoner ��t the city jail,  committed suicide by opening the arteries in his wrists and neck by means of >  a piece of broken glass. He recently finished serving a six months' term for attempting/to shoot Fay Alright, a fast  woman, who then lived at Phoenix. The  woman has resided here for some time  past and Schneider followed her to obtain revenge. He vainly sought her,  terrifying .the women of the tenderloin  by brandishing two revolvers. Wednesday, he was given another six months'  term, and 'Thursday at midnight attempted suicide by taking poison in his  cell. A physician saved his life. How he  got the poison is a mystery. His second  attempt was more successful. Schneider  was a prospector, 40 years old. His  brother resides at Lewiston, Montana.  An inquest will be held.  ^1  Will Be the Largest in the World.  GRAND FORKS, September 27.���The  Granby smelter is now being enlarged  to double its present capacity, and will  within six weeks be treating 1300 tons  of ore daily. Since the arrival of H. C.  S.. Miner from the east, it has been decided to make a still further enlargement, bringing the capacity up to 2000  tons a day. Besides the new plant now  being.Installed, two additional furnaces  will be ordered Immediately. As it takes  four or Ave months to build a furnace,  the plant will not be brought up to its  -maximum1' capacity before next spring.  When these furnaces are installed tho  Granby- smelter will be the largest gold-  copper smelting plant in the world.    ,  _j-i  "if  .i ���>  *���<"��� I THE ISTELSON TRIBUNE, SATURDAY MORMI..G   SEPTEMBER 28   1901  i. ���-  ii-  k"  i_^*t_ ���  Is*  res  I*''  ��� JT3\  l-v-  I_g-'��  1^ .1-  *  4W  ffl-  to  to  m  to  to  to  to  to  to  ���^*-��*s��3$att* to fc^-e-S&eec&C.^,  JvcoRroHAij-n 1070  OOMPAUT  NEW FALL GOODS _____IIVED  ��� The Very Latest Creations In ���  Ladies'   Costumes,    Jackets,    Skirts,    Waterproofs,  Japanese Dressing Gowns.

John Houston, Manager. Nelson, B. C.  Islands 11.   This would leave five members for Cassiar, Cariboo, and Lillooet.  The divisions could be divided as follows   for   representation:     Vancouver  City 5, New Westminster   City   1, and  Westminster , district   4,   with   ridings  bounded much the same as at present.  Victoria City should be given 4, Nanaimo City 1, Esquimalt 1, Victoria district  1, Nanaimo district 1, Cowichan 1, Co-  mox 1, and Alberni 1.   Such a basis of  representation would certainly be fair  to the Island.    The division taking in  Kootenay and Yale' could   be   divided  into twelve ridings.   Rossland and Trail  Creek mining division  should .be one;  Nelson   and   Nel��on   mining   division  another; the third should be the Slocan,  Slocan City, and Nakusp mining divisions; the fourth, Trout Lake and Ainsworth mining divisions; the fifth, Revelstoke, Lardeau, Illecillewaet, and Golden mining divisions; the sixth, Windermere mining division and all that portion . of   Fort   Steele   mining   division  lying   east   of   Kootenay   river;    the  seventh, all that portion of Fort Steele  mining division lying west ofj-Koote-  nay- river and the Goat ��� River mining  division; the eighth, all that portion of  Yale district lying along the main line  of' the C.

The   Tribune   believes   that  such, a division of- Kootenay and Yale  would, be not only *fair, but would "make  ridings whose interests'would be identical.   The  interests   o��_ Rossland   and  Trail;are identical, and the same can be  said^of Nelson.and the. different camps  in Nelson mining - division. * Kaslo is a  central point "for both'Ainsworth and  Trout LakeK mining'division,' and will  be all the more so on the completion of  : the - Lardo-Trout. Lake  branch  of  the  C. P. R. 'Slocan' lake lg central for Slocan, Slocan City and Nakusp mining di-  '< visions.  That'part of East and West  Kootenay lying along the main line of  the C. P. R. is not entitled to more than  i one member either from population or  .variety of interests. Southeast Kootenay,  with Fort - Steele' as the center, would  be a riding in' which there could be no  conflicting interests, and that portion^-of  'Southeast Kootenay lying west of-Kootenay  rivet*   combined' with   the   Goat  River mining division would be a riding having Cranbrook as a chief town.1  The population of these seven ridings  would vary, it is true; but the district  would   have   fair   representation,  ,and  _ther_e3rouldtbei-Community_of_interes��s  in each riding, which is an important  consideration.   The  population  of  the  several ridings would be approximately:  Rossland 7500, Nelson 7000, Kaslo 4500,,  Slocan   4500,'   Revelstoke-Golden   4000,  Fort Steele 4000, and Cranbrook-Moyie-  Creston 4000.

It is at once a ref-  lige to the traveler, heaven to the ex-  le, and to the   commonplace   mortal,  ke you- and me, the best that life offers.  [t is the spur that urges man on to re-  ewed effort in   the  face   of   obstacles  'hat seem unsurmouutable, and circumstances that appear hopeless.   To obtain  home is worth unceasing work; to rein it, endless care.   But the reward is  'rent, the prize worth having.  In the home that is our own  we are  upreme; as absolute a monarch as history affords.    At our own fireside we  ian frame laws and .govern   our   little  kingdom in the way  that  seems  best.

One's Lares and Penates  according to their nature and size, may  find place on the mantle, the book shelf,  or the floor, their position is immaterial,  provided they are present. Whether one  lives in a modern palace, a suburban  residence with defective drainage and  flues, or a back room up three pair of  stairs; one's home is nearly the casket in  which one preserves what is hallowed  by association or endeared by memories.  And the man or woman who is deserving of a home, and capable of appreciating it, would not give up its traditions  for luxury or riches.  The less one has the greater pride one'  takes in each little possession. The poor  concentrate their affection  on  one or  two things, while the rich have to frit-:  ter it away among many.   The acquisition of each fresh treasure to the comparatively poor represents an outlay of  thought and time, and often the exercise  of the economy which makes one place1  so high a value   on   one's   belongings.  The woman who has never been poor  onot'gh to plan has missed one of the  keenest joys of lite���that 'of accomplishment through honest effort.   She knows  the value cf nothing, she holds everything cheap.   If one can . afford tto purchase off-hand anything which may happen to appeal to one's fancy, the article,  no matter what its pecuniary value, can  represent little to us.   There is no personal feeling   about it.    Instead,   it is  merely something eminently' desirable,  to be purchased   and   then   forgotten.  There is no gloating over things picked  up m that way, no sense of triumph,  no real pleasure. ' On, the other hand,  .when ono has planned and saved and  studied ways and means again and again  before one has purchased *the treasure  one's heart is set upon, one appreciates,  it more than its actual money value.'  When, with utter   disregard ���of consequences one plunges in, and with reckless extravagance buys what one cannot  afford, but covets, in spite of after remorse, one knows the full joy of possession.    The real test of tlie value of a  purchase is to buy something so desired  that one   cannot" in   one's   impatience  trust it to-the tender mercies'of-the carrier, but insists' on   bringing it   home  oneself,   brown' paper" and'��� all.   .The  poorer one is, the more easily pleased.  So little awakens   one's   gratitude;  so  much demands one's thanks.   The rich  know ..the _ power  of  giving,   the  poor  the    pleasure   of   receiving.     Unfortunately, neither of them add with sufficient frequency to their store of knowledge, the   one   through   the   want   of  thought, the other from lack of opportunity.  At home one is always at one's best.  There is little doubt but that the average woman shows to the greatest advantage in familiar surroundings. Un-  'der one's own roof awkwaidness is an  unknown quantity. Tho consciousness  that she is in the proper setting, that  she is whore she belongs puts the shy  and retiring woman at her*ease. There  are persons with whom we may often  come in contact, and io.il wholly to ap-  prcciatc, until one has the opportunity  to accept then hospitality. There are  women who shirk the responsibilities  of housekeeping, but one does not need  to-keep -up-an-establishment-to-have -a  ho-v.n. Tho mosc delicate women are  often those who in their home surroundings best suggest the home atmosphere.  A desire for a home is innate in almost  ovory woman, and those who escape are  far from fortunate. In her home life a  woman may bo like a shining jewel in a  stately setting, or a humble stone stately  set. She may be designed for use or or-  namont; to be kept in cotton wool, save  on special occasion, or to be worn constantly", but she is alway_ happy when  tho great Lapidary has made her ono  of a cluster, for family ties are better  than solitary state.

GHARGE OF HIGH TREASON  Remarkable Ca_e of Dr. Krause.  Few   of   the* incidents   of  the   later  stages of the South African war^have  created a greater sensation than the arrest in London a few days ago of Dr. F.  C.  B.  Krause,  a  lawyer of the Inner  Temple, who was a prominent member  of the late goyernment of the Transvaal, "and who0 was governor of Johannesburg wheni the war commenced.      ,  Dr. Krause is not only a member of  the Transvaal bar, but is also an English  barrister,  having been  "called at  the middle Temple in Trinity term, 1893.  On  his  leturn  to   South  Africa  after  "call," he rapidly obtained a large criminal   practice,   and   became, the   public  prosecutor at Johannesburg under the  Kruger regime.  He "was considered to  be favorably disposed towards the Bng-*  lish, although he carried* out tiis duties  as public prosecutor ,with -vigor. In the  frequent emeutes which arose between  Dutch and Outlanders in Johannesburg,  it was Dr. Krause's duty to prosecute'  the offending parties, and it is a tribute,  to his fair-mindedness that he did not  incur   the  ill  will   of  the  Outlanders,'  against whom he had often to appear.J  When the war broke Dr. Krause was  appointed commandant of Johannesburg,  and this post he'retamed'until the entry  of lord Roberts into the town in June  of last year.' It is stated that 'lord Roberts , offered Krause an important administrative post in the'Transvaal, but;  the ex-public -prosecutor felt bound to  decline the post, inasmuch as it would  lay him open to the charge of. treachery  tb  his- own country.  This was understood, by lord Roberts, and commandant  Krause   shortly  afterwards   left   South  Africa for Europe. Early in the year he  commenced to resume his studies of law  in the Middle Temple, London. A frequenter of the library, and common-room  and a capital chess player, he soon won  the respect of his-fellow-Templars.'  Div Krause 'was _summoned -by lord  Roberts to meetThim af Gefmiston,' outside Johannesburg, on May 30th, 1900.  At the interview he begged the commander-in-chief to defer entering "the  town for twenty-four hours, as "there  were armed burghers still inside. To  this lord Roberts assented. Dr. Krause  had previously caused a notice to be  posted up on .all the walls of the town  oidering all armed men to quit the^town  by daybreak and join their respective  commandoes. He also organized special.  police" to stop looting and outrages.  When lord Roberts entered^ Johannesburg on June 1st, Dr. Krause met him,  rode' by his side to,the government offices,'and introduced him to the heads  of-the different departments. His conduct at this time" was warmly praised by"1  the British authorities.  The following is the portion of t.lor d  Roberts' message to the war office on  the occupation of Johannesburg relating  to Dr. Kiause. It was written on May  3lGt-and-tele_Taphed-on~June-_st:~=t-;; -  "The occupation of Johannesburg  passed   off   quite   satisfactorily   today,  ifr* "000* 00 '00'00 '00* 00 * 00'00'00 '00 '00*00  m  to  to  to  toi,  to  9\  9}  m  to  to ,'gin and Waltham Watches, all manner  to-'''     ' '���  ____      ^Ur -Watch an(^ Jewelry Department have no  /jl  equal in B. 0.  lAll work guaranteed.

Mr. Haskell- a missionary at  Samakoy, l_ulgaria,* has received a let-  ���"tcr from Miss Helen Stone, the American missionary who was carried off by  brigands. It does not reveal the whereabouts of Miss Stone, but says she is in  good health and has been well treated  by the brigands, especially in the earlier stages of the abduction. Latterly,  in consequence of vigorous pursuit of  ��� the Turkish troops, she has been subjected to privations. oMiss*-Stone says  the brigands demand a ransom of,.��25,-  000. Tho opinion is expressed in Consti-  nople that the Bulgaro-Macedonian  committee was actively concerned in the  abduction of the missionary.  thanks to the excellent arrangements  of Dr. Krause, the Transvaal commandant here, 'and order prevailed throughout the town. Dr. Krau. e met me at the  ontrance to Johhannesburg, and rode  by my side to the government offices,'  where he introduced me to the heads of  the several departments, all of whom acceded to my request that they would  continue to carry on their respective  duties until thoy could be relieved of  them."  It can consequently be imagined what  a sensation was caused by the announcement of the arrest In London of  Dr. Krause upon a charge of treason.  Dr. Krause had been in England for  four months and it is asserted that after  signifying his allegiance to the British  crown he has secietly forwarded from  England ftiformation which would be  of sorvice to the enemy. The police authorities  had been aware of this fact  for some time past, and a warrant was  recently granted for arrest. Dr. Krause,'  howeyer, had disappeared from the pur-'  view of the police. It appears that along  with his sister,. Mrs Leischer Dixon, he  .had been staying for some time at the'  Station botel, Inverness, and Mrs. Dixon1  wrote to-the manager of the St. Ermin's  hotel,   London,   engaging   two   single,  rooms. Dr. Krause and his sister reached  Euston ^station at 6 o'clock one, night,;  and drove' immediately to the St. Er-'  min's hotel, where they arrived about;  'an, hour later. For two hours previously,;  however,, two detectives, from Scotland'  Yard"had been waiting for'the appear-',  ance of Dr. Krause, and in the interval informed the manager that they had  a" warrant" for his apprehension.      ��      i  A few.minutes past seven a cab'loaded1  with luggage drove up the hotel court'  yard, and from this > vehicle Dr. Krause'  ,and~his sister, descended. After giving'  instructions to ,the hotel porter regard-i  ing his luggage, Dr. Krause stepped into  the main-hall >of the, hotel, where'he.  found himself*< confronted by the detec-f  tives. One of the gentleman from Scot-J  land   Yard"i immediately  produced   his-  warrant; which he' read to Dr. ��� Krause,|  and it is said that gentleman was so'  overcome at this unexpected denouement'  that_.he was-scarcely able to -utter, a{  word.1, The detectives, however, proceed-,  ed' about their work ".expeditiously * but'  quietly,' and few,if any,of the residents  ofithe'hotel''knew what was happening.  Dr. Krause,* escorted by'one of the detectives, returned to the cab m which' he  had driven to the hotel,.and directions  -were'given that his sister's luggage'was  to be" moved into the hotel, while that  of-Dr. Krause remained on the cab.'Another .detective busied himself with ex-  _amining"4Mrs. Dixon's .luggage'before it  ���was -removed" into the rhbtels_.rdl "shlrd  was  permitted-to  be  removed to her  room. It is-conjectured^ that this inspection was mainly for the purpose of ascertaining if Mrs. Dixon was in possession  of any incriminating--documents.  Evidently the inspection was satisfactory, as Mrs. Dixon was allowed to proceed      without      further ,    inconven-  lonce.v The' other detectives',then joined  D_. Krause in the cab," and they departed with their prisoner.,   *���   , ,  -     �����    ���   George Pullman Divorc d  CHICAGO, September 27.���fThe bishop  today granted va decree of "'divorce to  Mrs. Lynn Pullman from George M.

PARIS, September 26.���Touet, in La  Patrie's story, is evidently Koweyet, the  proposed terminus of the Bagdad railroad. It is the only port on the Persian Gulf having a good harbor. In-  cuiries made in official quarters here  elicited an emphatic denial that there  was any such agreement between Germany, Russia, and France, as referred  to by La Patrie, and no confirmation  was obtainable regarding the alleged  alarming situation, which is evidently  built on the fact that three British warships happened to be at Koweyet, and  that it is reported the British are encouraging the local sultan to repudiate  Turkish sovereignty.

From the manner .in which  the shares are being taken up Mr. Meiklejohn does not anticipate any difficulty  in disposing of the entire issue.-  Mayor Carlson of Kaslo arrived in  Nelson yesterday on his way to Winnipeg. His mission is to pick up men  for the construction work on the Lardo  branch which he and "Dick" Porter  have in hand. About 40 harvest hands  arrived in Nelson yesterday for work  upon the railway grade, and mayor Carlson hopes as the result of his visit to  secure enough men to finish up the work  hy the middle of December. Although  the branch is still far from completion  travel into the Lardeau is already becoming diverted from ythe northern to  the southern route, travellers finding it  more convenient to cover the grade oh  horseback than to go into the district  by the old route.

The Laws Are Bad at Nome.  PORT TOWNSEND, September  27.���  The steamer Senator has arrived from  Nome    with  nearly     500    passengers  and over half a million in treasure. Out  of a large number of passengers on the  Senator, not one of them brought out,  it is said, as much money as they took  in.   All spoke in the highest terms of  the country as a mining section,  but  say that the laws are such that it would  be years before the country will open  out.   They say that hot one new claim  has;: been   opened:  in  the   vicinity  of  Nome this season; for the;reason that  when   prospectors   find , pay   diggings,  some comes along and claims it by right  of prior location, and it is then' tied iip  : in court.   The largest nugget ever found  in the north was taken out of Anvil  creek, an September 14th.    It  weighed  97 ounces and is  valued  at  $1552.   A  rich strike- is reported on the -head of  Grouse gulch.    The claim was bonded  for $50,000, and the bond lapsed but a  few days when the strike  .was   made.  Sick and indigent people at Nome have  reached such   large; numbers   that the  .question of what shall be done with them  is the main topic.   Just before the Senator sailed a mass meeting was to be  called for the purpose of raising money  to" send that class out on the last boat  A Sensational Story.  PARIS, September 26.-^La Patrie today prints a sensational story to the effect that a conflict has broken out between qreat: Britain and Turkey, saying th. t three British warships have  been ordered to the Persian gulf, to suppress revolts at Touet, in the province  of Bagdad, and that th _ Turkish government has despatched a strong detachment of troops, with instructions to oppose the landing of the British farces.
