VICTIMS   SCALD  TO   DEATH   BEFORE EXTRACTED BY  RESCUERS.  NEW YORK, January S.���Down in  the New York Central tunnel, that burrows under Park avenue, two local  trains met in collision at 8:17 o'clock  this morning, and 15 passengers were  lulled and twice that number wounded.  It was a rear-end collision between a  south Norwalk local that ran in over  the New York Central, New Haven &  Hartford, and was halted by block signals at the southern entrance to the tun-  0 nel, and a White Plains local that came  by the Harlem branch of the New York  Central.  Most of the deaths, injury and damage Avas Avrought by the engine of the  Plains train, which plunged into the  rear car of the standing train. Its many  A'ictims were mangled to death in the  mass .of wreckage on the pilot, crushed  between boiler and car sides, or burned  to death by steam. The engine, in its  final plunge of forty feet, carried the  rear car forward and sent broken timbers and splinters crashing ��� into the  coach ahead. Lights were "extinguished  and the dead, injured and unharmad  j Avere left. in darkness that escaping  i    Steam and smoke made more confusing.  Out from the wreck came the cries of  those who still lived and within a few  minutes the work of rescue begun. The  noise of the impact earned warning \o  the street above and alarms brought  every available ambulance in the city.  The police reserves and firemen of the  central eastern district of Manhattan  Avere sounded at once. With police, firemen and surgeons,'came a score-of volunteer physicians, and half a dozen  priests and ministers. Ladders were run  down the -tunnel air shafts and the firemen and police attacked the debris with  rope and axes. The passengers had already rallied and Avere trying to release  their fellows who Avere imprisoned. in  the debris.  Father AVilliam Smith, Roman Catholic chaplain of the fire department,  crawled over the hot boiler of the wrecked engine to offer scaraments to the dying. Rev'v Dr. Walkley, Protestant  chaplain of the department, labored  Avith him. Lieutenant William Clarke  of the fire department forced his way  into where Miss Rice and Miss Scott lay,  and stood in steam that scalded his legs  unitl they were got out. T. M. Murphy,  a passenger with both legs broken, and  still held tight by timbers that had  broken them, volunteered to remain as  he was until those around him were  taken out.  Policemen Hughes and Raffsby and  chaplain Walkely reached Mrs. HoAvard,  and the chaplain gave her a stimulant.  The policemen were cutting away the  ���^searwhich^held*iher-doAvn-when-a=steam,  pipe broke. The scalding Dteam drove  them back and AVhen tney returned, Mrs.  Howard was dead. Those of the injured  in need of immediate attention were  given temporary dressing by the ambu-  ��� lance and volunteer surgeons, and then  hoisted to the street above. Many ol  the handsome houses which line Park  avenue were thrown open to the suffering, but most of the injured were huv-  ried to the hospitals. The dead w-'jre  also carried to the surface and taken  to morgues and police stations.  Responsibility for the disaster is not  fixed, but superintendeit Franklin said,  that as far as he was able to discover,  J. M. Wischo, engineer of the White  Plains train, was to blame. When the  South Norwalk train Avas stopped a  flagman ran back into the tunnel, and  besides placing a torpedo on the track,  endeavored to flag the incoming tram.  He hurled his lantern at the cab window,  but the big engines lever never halt-ad  until it was hurled into wreck. It is  not clear that the torpedo exploded ir  that Wischo Avas warned by the lantern  signal. There is also a question about  the propriety of the signal men permitting the colliding train to enter the  same block section Avith the halt.d  train. The tunnel was clouded Avith  steam and smoke, and the snow which  fell through the air shaft of the tunnei  also aided in obscuring the view. Engineer Wischo and fireman Flynn were  placed under arrest. A signal man was  also detained for a time, but was released. The heavy cost of life, and the  prominence of some of the persons kill  ed or injured, coupled with the recent  agitation for a sweeping improvement  of the tunnel, claimed general attention  and aroused popular feeling.  NEW YORK, January 8.���A Ne?"  York & Harlem railway local passengp;  train ran into the last car of a New  York & NeAv Haven & Hartford train  knoAvn as the Norwalk.accommodation  today, in the New York Central tunnel  between 5Gth and 57th streets, in this  city. The wreck occurred about a bloel"  and a half from the mouth of the tunnel. At 11 o'clock the numoer of parsons killed was placed by the railwa->  company at 15 and the injured at 20 oi  more. The shock of the collision war  plainly heard by people passing on Park  avenue above the tunnel. Several of then!  ran to give the alarm. In ten minutes  everybody at police and fire headquarters were at work to organize relief to  be sent to the spot. When the rescuers  reached the wreck smoke Avas pouring  out of the entrance to the tunnel at 55th  street, and great columns of smoke  poured out of the first ventilator a half  block north. Ambulances came in from  the east and Avest, ladders were put  down from the street over the iron  fence to the track and the firemen,  policemen, and sugeons Avere immediately at Avork. It was very dark in the  tunnel, whicli was filled with smoke and  steam, and the work of rescue Avas difficult. The locomotive of the White  Plains local Avas hidden in the rear of  the   car of   the   south   NoiTolk   train.  The mained and injured Avere calling  for help from the wreck. Some were  more badly injured than others and Avere  being assisted by the more fortunate  passengers.  NEW YORK, January 8.���Almost a  riot Avas caused at the East Fifty-first  Street police station by the arrest of a  man who was accused by coroner Scholl  of attempting to rob the bodies of the  dead as they lay in the station house.  People had been admitted to the station  to identify the bodies, and the man is  supposed to have drifted in with the  croAvd. When the man Avas taken before  the police sergeant at the desk, the  friends and relatives of some of the  dead men -were so incensed that they  made several attempts to get at him.  The man gave his name as John Ma-  loney. Coroner Scholl said he saw Ma-  loney go through the pockets of one of  the dead person's clothes. Maloney was  hustled back to a cell, followed by the  curses of the crowd.  TAKES   A   GLOOMY  VIEW  Emperor William's Speech.  BERLIN, January S��� The speech  from the throne, read by the imperial  chancellor count Von Buelow at the  opening of the Prussian diet, today  took a gloomy vieAv of the economic situation. It pointed out that the revenue  from the state railroads in 1901 falls  considerably short of the estimates, and  that the whole results of the financial  year were disappointing. In the budget  for 1902 the revenue is estimated beloAV  that of the current year; but the balance between the revenue and expenditure is to be maintained without having  recourse to a loan. The speech announced that legislation providing for the  housing of state workmen and officials  earning small salaries.' Considerable  credits are demanded for the extension  of the state ' railroads. A neAV can.il  bill Avill be submitted, to complete the  system of waterways. Emperor William's speech concluded with pointing  to the necessity of a measure against  the agitation in the Polish districts in  eaistern Prussia, and declared that the  upholding of the political and economic  position of the German element there  was necessary for the self-preservation  of Prussia, and promised that the government would fulfill its duty in cul-.  minating the Berlin national spirit in  that region and in combating Avith firmness all tendencies hostile to the state. ���  Kaffir Market Speculative.  NEW YORK, January 8.���Commenting upon the situation in South Africa,  the London correspondent cf the Tribune says: "Lord Roseberry will entertain Cecil Rhodes at Mentmore for a few  days, and will be brought into closer  .touch_with_the_sjtvi^^n Jn^Scarth^Af  rica. Speculators in mining shares are  anxious to impress foreigners with the  fact that there is a boom in the Kaffir  market. Prices have advanced intermittently during the last few Aveeks, but  the movement is artificial, with specula-,  tive purchases with borrowed money  rather than solid investments. Operators, who are eager to work up excitement in the Kaffir market, refer to the  increased demand for shares from Paris  and New York, but the evidence of foreign investment is tainted with suspicion. The market is' always strengthened AVhen Mr. Rhodes is in London, for  his optimism is infectious. Money is  now cheap in the city and speculative  purchases of shares are easily financed.  King's Health is Good  NEW YORK, January 8.���The king's  health is all that can be desired and  court officials speak without reserve,  cables the London correspondent of the  Tribune. The king refers constantly to  the subject himself and seems bent upon  preventing a revival of the sinister rumors which cost the tradesmen heavily  when they were insuring the coronation  stocks. What was once knoAvn as "the  prince of Wales set" has been restored  to favor, if it were ever in danger of being excluded from the court, and the  queen welcomes at Sandringham all the  king's old time friends. The king is described by officials as following closely  his mother's manner in dealing with  public business. He makes it a matter  of conscience to read every document  carefully and to ask information if he  does not fully understand it. He takes  every detail of. the business of reigning  as seriously and methodically as she  was in the habit of doing, and uses  many of her characteristic cxpresions.  Took Their Time to do It.  ST. LOUIS, January 7.���Six masked  men entered the National Stock Yards  Bank, north of East St. Louis, Illinois,  last night, and after choking and gagging the two night Avatchmen aud the  fireman at the steam plant and bloAving  open the vaults with dynamite, secured  $5000 in coin and currency, Avith which  they decamped early today. From 7  o'clock last night until 4 o'clock a. m.  they were at work on the vaults without  being interfered -with.  STEAMER REVELSTOKE LAUNCHED  Important Event fop the Big Bend Country.  ARROWHEAD, -January 8.���[Special to The Tribune.]���The steamer Revelstoke  was launched today at Nakusp in the presence of a large party of Revelstokers, including  the directors of the company and the mayor and spdermen of the city. She was christened  by Miss Blanche McCarty, daughter of managing'director F. McCarty of the Revelstoke  Navigation Company. The boat will ply on the upper Columbia river, from Revelstoke  fifty miles north, and Avill help open up a country of great mineral and lumber resources.  The occasion is considered to be one of great importance to Revelstoke and north Kootenay. It is the first step in the development of a section containing placer gold and free  milling gold quartz, silver, lead, copper and mica mines, and large tracts of valuable  timber, and in area is equal to one-third of the whole of Kootenay. The launch of the  steamboat will bring this section ahead with a rush next season, and be a big step towards  making Revelstoke a very important distributing point in  Kootenay.  FIVE GOOD MEN AND TRUE  Will Make the Race for Aldermen,  Five gentlemen have sigairied their  willingness to enter the contest for seats  at the aldermanic board this year. They  are captain D. C. McMorris of the  steamer Moyie and Thomas J. Scanlan,  residents of the West Avard, and R. W.  Drew, John A. Irving, and Chris Morrison, residents of the East ward. Mr.  Irving is now an alderman, and seeks  re-election. Mr. Morrison Avas an alderman" in 1900, and served his constituents acceptably. Messrs. Drew and  Scanlan have not had official honors in  Nelson, and captain McMorris is in the  same boat. As far as ability goes, these  five gentlemen outrank any five of the  six gentlemen who".are opposing them.  Mr. Drew is joint'freight agent- of the  Canadian Pacific and Great Northern  railway systems in Nelson, which is evidence that he has both business and executive ability. T. J. Scanlan is one of  the best posted and best read young  merchants in the city, is thoroughly independent, and has not affiliated with  factions in- the past. Captain McMorris  is accounted one of the ablest navigators  on the lakes, and has long been a resident of Nelson. He has pronounced  views on questions affecting the welfare  of the city and has the ability to give  expression to them either Avith pen i.r  by speech. John A. Irving's record in  the council stands out clearly. He had  the courage of his convictions on all  questions, and he made a good fight  against the Fletcher-Selous scheme of  turning the lighting business of the city  over to the West Kootenay PoAver &  Light Company. Mr. Morrison, is one  of the best knoAvn business men in the  East Avard, and AVhen the fight was <"-n  with the W. K. P. & L. Co. he did good  service. He is a pleasing speaker, is  -clear-headed,=andcan-beidependedj3n!"t-">_  do his duty by the city. All five are  married men and have families. No one  of them owes the city a dollar. No  one of them is seeking election to the  council to advance other interests than  those of the city, and none of them expect to sell the city a dollar's Avorth  of supplies. In the West ward alderman  Madden was counted on to be a candidate for re-election, but the voters'  list has willed it-"otherwise. Mr. Madden  has served two terms in the council,  and during his last term he is the on'.y  one of the bunch Avho voted right all  the time on all questions.  Losing Sight of Salient Factors.  NELSON, January 8.���To the Editor  of The Tribune: ln the excitement consequent upon the discovery within the  past few days, that several citizens had  been disqualified as voters and candidates through not having paid their  taxes before a specified arbitrary date,  it seems to me we are losing sight of  one or two salient factors which, if  made public, would enable the electors  to vote intelligently for or against the  candidates now in the field for municipal honors. I, in-common Avith the majority of the ratepayers, have been waiting for the retiring council to give an  account of their stewardship;* to make  public a statement of the financial position of the city, the amounts collected  and disbursed during their regime, and  various other items of interest to every  ratepayer. Mr. Fletcher find his colleagues, in justice to themselves and to  the electorate, are in duty bound to  make public this statement. Is the civic  service costing us more than it should?  or, are there figureheads in any or all  civic departments Avho are drawing salary and who are giving no adequate service in return? There are some Avho believe this to be the case, and in the absence of any statement showing Iioav  the funds have been disbursed, is there  not some warrant for such a belief?  For the year 1901 the taxes Avere increased some 30 to 35 per cent over the  previous year, and no reason has as yet  been given for the increase. Does it not  seem reasonable, then, that the ratepayers should be taken into the confidence of the retiring, and at the same  time aspiring, council, and be given a  clear statement of how the funds Avere  used, and the necessity of so great an  increase in taxation in one year? Failing such a statement, would it not be  absurd to return to office those who are  unable or unwilling to give a reasonable  account of their stewardship?  D. C.'McMORRIS.  MURDERED AND CREMATED  Boundary District Local News.  GREENWOOD, January 8.���-[Special  to The Tribune.]-���James Leamy, Dominion timber inspector; accompanied  by F. W. Ho way, barrister, New Westminster, is here in connection with the  claim made by Joseph Genelle against  the crown, for a refund of timber dues,  which he alleges has ueen overpaid during several years. Robert SteAvart, now  employed at the Deadwood sawmill,  formerly bookkeeper for Genelle, Avas  examined today before judge Leamy,  who has been appointed examiner by  judge Burbridge of the exchequer court,  to obtain his evidence on behalf of the  crown. H. C. Shaw,'of Hallett & Shaw,  appe-ired* for Genell,; ; '" <      -  The Ethopia, at Long Lake camp,  made its first shipment of ore this Aveek.  It sent out a car of gold quartz to the  Greenwood smelter.  The Blockhouse System  LONDON, January 8.���The Times correspondent at Pretoria, considering the  efficiency of the blockhouse, states that  the blockhouse lines do not keep the  enemy away altogether unless they are  built" on the latest model, as on the  Standerton-Ermelo line, about 600 yards  apart, "with barbed wire entanglements  from end to ' end. A Boer prisoner  brought into Standerton along this line  Avas asked what he thought, and replied:  "Well, if my hat blew over I should  have to go round Ermelo to fetch it."  Blockhouses at wider intervals serve to  locate and to intimidate the enemy.  They also prevent their free passage,,  but the Boers, if fully determined, can  effect a crossing by night.  -A-Treacherous-Slav.,,  CLEVELAND, January 8. ��� John  Pavel, a Slav, aged 20 years, was stabbed to death last night by his uncle,  John Pilat. The men had been celebrating the Slavonic Cnristmas, and had  quarreled after the entertainment.

On January 2nd  the men met at Cameron's camp, and  after drinking, they began discussing  the question of who should have the services of Miss Mannin. The men soon began to fight with knives. The woman  attempted to separate them and was  fatally stabbed. To destroy traces of the  murder, it was thought, alcohol was  poured over the woman and ignited. The  men left the place immediately. Three  days later a man went to Cameron's  house and on the floor found the charred body of the unfortunate Avoman. The  men Avere found, arrested, and taken to  jail at Plattsburg. Miss Mannin was  about 40 years old and belonged to a respectable family at Rouse's Point.  Tunnel Scheme Feasible  NEW YORK, January 8.���The work  of making soundings in the North river  for the Pennsylvania-New York Extension Railroad Company, which is to cou-  struct_the=tunnel connect!ng New J er-^  sey and Manhattan island, is practically completed.

I*-..-  BAD  FEELING ENGENDERED   BY  MISTAKE MADE IN ARRESTING AMERICANS.  PEKIN, January 8.���While the actual  casualties during the fighting at New  Chwang between American sailors belonging to the United States gunboat'  Vicksburg, which is wintering there,  and the Russian soldiers attached to the  garrison of that port, are trifling up to  date, the matter has resulted in unpleasantly strained relations between the  American, Russian, and'British authorities there. The Washington and St.  Petersburg governments are now endeavoring to arrange matters so that  there may be no further frictioa on the  subject. The trouble originated in the  action of some sailors belonging to the  British sloop of war Algerine (also in  winter quarters at New Chwang) carrying ashore six rifles for use in a theatrical performance. The Russian administration sent a force of men to arrest  the British sailors. The Russians,.however by mistake, broke into a reading  room where a party of the Vicksburg  men were seated and tried^ to arre3t  them. The Americans resisted, U3ing  chairs in so doing, but they were overpowered after a sharp fight and handed  over to the United States consul, who  sent them on board the Vicksburg.' The  bad feeling which arose from this incident resulted in several fights whenever  the American and British tailors met  Russian soldiers, and the latter not being accustomed to fist fighting were  usually worsted. This state of affairs  culminated on New Years' Day in a mora  serious affray, and the Russian minister here, M. Paul Lessar,-complained to  the United States minister at Pekin, E.  H. Conger, that two members of the  Vicksburg crew had fired a revolver .at  Mi.jinoffehding Russian soldier, wounding him inv the arm. ���"'.''���''"���  The relations between the American  and British consuls and naval commanders and the Russian administration  at New Chwang are strained, which  makes a friendly settlement of the affair,  difficult. The administrator attempted  to enforce a social code, which the foreign officials refused to recognize, and  consequently the relations have been,  limited to strictly ofl_cial interviews,  which have not been amiable, consisting mostly in protests against the action of the administrator, and protests  of the administrator against the conduct  of the sailors. The memorandum presented by the Russian minister to the  United States minister here relates to  various alleged assaults committed by  Americans.

The steps taken, however, are  seriously handicapped by action of the  Russians, who refuse to allow foreigners  to use the English line. The foreigners  at. New Chwang attribute the trouble  largely to lack of tact upon the part of  the administrators.  Victimi-ins* Iowa Farmers.  INDEPENDENCE, Iowa, January 8.���  A scheme to defraud scores of farme__'-  in this part of Iowa came.to.Hgl-t today. It is estimated that had the plans  succeeded the promoters would havo  cleared about $35,000 as notes representing that amount have been sent to  the bank at Jessup in this county, for  collection. Three months ago a stranger,  giving his name as John Smith, covered  the western and northern portion of tha  county and obtained farmers' signatures for various alleged purposes. He secured the signatures of at  least 200 farmers and possibly more.  On Monday a large number of the  wealthy signers received notices from a  Chicago law firm notifying them to meet  certain notes. At the bank were promis-  ory notes to the amount of $14,000 for.  collection, bearing the names of about  seventy men. The notes revealed tha  scheme. Blank sheets of paper were  signed and the promissory notes werfl  printed at the top. The farmers are  united in their efforts to fight the ca_a  and the best ot legal talent has been,  retained.   First Steamers Cancelled.  NEW YORK, January S.���The fast  ocean steamers, which ordinarily sail  on Saturday have been withdrawn for  the regular winter overhauling, there  will be no fast steamers leaving this port  on Saturday for England. In order that  there may be as little delay as possible  in getting the mails to i_ondon, tney,  will be divided between two steamers  leaving here on Saturday, the Minneapolis of the Atlantic Transport line and  the Saxonia of the Cunard line. They  are about of equal speed. The Minneapolis will make a special stop at Plymouth to send forward the mails.

Mayor  Fletcher has had full charge of the business affairs of Nelson for the year 1901,  yet the year has expired and not a single  word has he made public as to what he  has done. Surely he has as much brains  as the chief of police, and is able to  make a report even if he is not able to  write an address to the electors of the  city.  The newspaper organ of the Bonning-  ton Falls Ticket seems to be laboring  under a misapprehension regarding  John A. Kirkpatriek.

Shall J. j. Hill control our fuel supply? is a question that has arisen in the  Crow's Nest pass, in which, we of ihe  Kootenays have a deep  interest,    ijhe  =&l*act-"are"briefly-=a's "follows : ^^Exp eirts  employed by the Dominion government  to examine the coal measures there report, so far as they  can  determines at  preaent, mining can be carried on economically at four  points only,  namgly,  at Michel, at Coal creek, on land north  of Morrissey creek,  and on land south  of Morrissey.     The   Crow's   Nest   Coal  Company is already operating at Michel  and Coal creek, and will shortly begin  operating   north   of   Morrissey.    Th'air  present desire is to secure land southj of  Morrissey,  in which  event they would  have an  absolute  monopoly of all   the  acc'b-sible coal lands'in the Crow's Nest  pass.    The   land   south   of   Morrissey,  however, is controlled by the Dominion  government., that is to say, will form  part of the land to be selected by the  minister of the interior under the arrangement   made   by   the   government  when the Crow's Nest railway was built.  Of course, the Crow's Nest Coal Company is not asking for the land south of  Morrissey in its Own name.   That would'  be  too patent   and   audacious   a   step  even for.J. J. Hill, who has a large'interest in the company and will obtain  full control of it so soon as his branch  from Kalispell to Fernie is completed.  "What the company is doing, therefore,  is this:    It is trying to obtain the land  for a   so-called   independent   company,  but a company really subsidiary to itself.  "We are certain that Mr. Sifton will hot  allow himself to be overreached in this  bold fashion.   Consider what would happen if Mr. Hill controlled the coal and  coke supply  in tho Crow's   Nest   pass.  Naturally, his efforts would he directed  to building up the smelter industry in  the United States.    To accomplish this,  he would provide the smelters which he  might erect just south of the boundary  with coke and coal at a cheaper m-ice  than .that charged to Canadian smelters.  This  would   enable  him   to  reduce  the  cost ol' smelting on the American  _i-.le  below tbe lowest figures that could ue  quoted by Canadian smelters, inasmuch  as fuel constitutes a very large item indeed   in the   cost   of smelting.    With  cheaper smelting he would surely attract British Columbia ores to his smelters on the American side.   In this manner it would be .quite within his power  to annihilate the smelting industry in  British Columbia within a twelvemonth,  and to prevent its resurrection for all  time. . No one wishes to stop Mr. Hill  from  mining  coal  or  making coke  in  British Columbia and shipping it to the  United States.   As an abstract; proposition, there is nothing to be said against  that.   But it-would' be -a very different  matter if the  minister of the interior  were to vest Mr. Hill with a monopoly  of the  fuel supply  oi  the Kootenays,  since in that case Mr. Hill could notbe  hindered from using it to the rtiin :��� of  British Columbia smelters'.    Mr. Sifton  cannot but be aware of the pit which  the Crow's Nest Coal Company is digging for him and for the interests, of  British Columbia as well.   It has been  suggested that   the  provincial   government should be asked to interfere.   Under the. grant transferring the coal land  to the Crow's Nest Coal Company, it has  the power to levy any royalty, say pf j 53  per ton "with the proviso that this royalty should not be imposed upon coal  going to American smelters which do  not smelt British Columbia ores.    By  this means Mr. Hill would be prevented  from wresting nature's bounty to us out  of-our-hands^and-converting^it^into^a-  weaponfor our destruction.  Turning the Tables  Here is an interesting story from the  South African Mail, of how a British  officer turned the tables upon his captors.    Captain H. C. B. Phillips of the  Thirteenth Imperial Yeomanry, operating with Methune's forces in the western Transvaal, was going his rounds a  few days ago visiting the sentries on  the outskirts of the camp, when, in un  isolated position he was suddenly confronted by three Boers, of whom two  were armed.   They made him prisoner,  and at once proceeded to .divest him of  his   personal   property,   uniform,    etc.  They had got possession of pretty well  everything except his spurs, which they  ordered him to remove.    He declined,  at the same  time  telling   his   captors  that if they wanted   them   they   must  take them themselves, whereupon  two  stooped down to unfasten   the   straps,  captain Phillips being covered with the  rifle of the third man. No sooner, however, had the two   men   got   into the  kneeling position than captain Phillips,  with two well-directed   blows,   bowled  them both over, and seizing the Mauser  of one, which had been incautiously laid  on the ground, felled the Boer who was  covering him with a tremendous blow on  the side of the head with the butt end  of the rifle, giving him his quietus, not,  however, before he had fired, the bullet  passing uncomfortably near to the gallant  officer's  head.     Captain   Phillips  then turned the tables.by securing the  two Boer prisoners and marching them  into camp.  ST0RTETTES,  to  We will offer the balance of our Fall and "Winter  Stock at Bargain Prices to clear before stock taking-.  Sale commences Monday, January; 6th, 1902.  It is related that once when a captain  in the army was cornered by the enemy,  he addressed his men as follows: "My men,  light like demons until your powder gives  out, then run. I'm a little lame. I'll start  now."  Little prince Edward of Wales, son of  England's heir apparent, said the other day  to a lady who was visiting the royal children In their nursery: "Do you think that  great grandmamma Is tiuite happy in heaven?" "Yes, dear," replied the lady, "don't  you think so?" "Well, 1 am not quite sure,"  answered he. "you see she will have to  walk behind the angels there, and here  she always walked in front."  An error of a new clerk in the mailing  department of an eastern publisher was  responsible the other day for the mailing  of a prospectus to a .world famous statesman, who had been dead for some years.  The letter was returned a few days later  with the following indorsement: "In heaven, ������, 1901. Gentlemen: As your publications are not permitted to circulate here  I believe it would be useless for me to subscribe for them. Yours respectfully." and  here followed the name of the famous  statesman.  Ladies' Black  and Tan Kid  Gloves. Special  Sale price 75c  per pair.

But the readiest way out of it is for  Mr. Sifton to lease the land south: of  Morrissey to some company in no way  controlled or likely to be controlled :by  Mr.  Hill  and  his  friends.    The  Canadian Pacific railway  is  debarred   from  mining at the Crow's Nest pass by ;its  agreement with the existing coal company, otherwise it would be well to give  it the land south of Morrissey in order  to Insure an efficient competition in the  interests of British Columbia as against  Mr.  Hill  and his  friends,  who in  this  affair,  represent   Montana,   Idaho,  and  Washington.   There is nothing to prevent Mr. Sifton, however, from leasing  the land south of Morrissey to persons  who would co-operate with the Canadian,  Pacific. . In no other way that we can  see can Mr. Hill's attempt to secure a  monopoly  be  frustrated.    Fortunately,  the matter has nothing to do with party  politics.   It is purely a question as: to  whether British Columbia interests are  to be safeguarded at a vital spot or sacrificed to foreign competitors, who, witness their high duties on lead and lead  ore and the operations of their smelting trust, have   no  bowels   for us  and  no thought of anything but their own  aggrandizement.    Mr. Hill's railway to  Fernie   will   be   completed   in a   few  months.    It is advisable, therefore, that;  the rival company should be allowed to  open ground at once so that it may be  in a. position to begin shipping at the  earliest possible date.    To delay would  simply be to play into Mr. Hill's hands.  The question is one of such transcendent  moment to the Kootenays that the Nelson Board of Trade and similar bodies  elsewhere ought to lose no time in giving expression to their views. Mr. Sifton  will act all the more promptly if fortified by the public opinion of British Columbia conveyed to him and to all others  in the East in unmistakable language.  When asked what he thought of a certain  captain who frequented the Essex links, a  Scotch caddie said: "Weel. sir, he's a vera  nice gentleman and a good . gaufer, but  he's awfu' nerra, awfii' nerra." "Narrow?  What do you mean Donald?"' "Weelv. sir,  it's this way. After the game was over and  I had carried his clubs, up to the house,  he says: 'Donald, will ye have a draw?'  and I said: Ido be verra pleased, so'he  gets the bottle and he pouring away Into a  glass, and I wanting to be genteel, says:'  Stop! Stop���and he stopped."  A story Is told of a naval officer, who had  ^beeircharged^with���someslight-ofl'ensc-and^  ordered under arrest. He presented himself  in full dress uniform, but without his  sword. "I can't arrest you," said the captain, "unless you come prepared to submit  your sword to me." The officer explained  that he had not received his sword from  home, but that it was on the -way. "Then  go and get one." was the reply. So the officer skirmished among his brother officers,  until he obtained a sword. Returning. ;he  handed it to the captain, and wns placed  under arrest according to regulations.     !  ��� L. IX.

"Give me some little soft  thine;," murmured he.,,  And Beatrice wrote to him thus:  ���'Without love 1 would prefer to die.  What is the husk of life good for? Just  two things are worth while.

Uo was sick ot that. Ho went to the  stables of his father, the rich mayor of  Silao, and ordered his best horse saddled.  He rode ui> the gorge to Guanajuato, and  arrived In that city of crags and silver in  the evening as the moon rose. Behind him,  unseen, had ridden some one else, following.  The street over which hung the little balcony of the Soledad, tlie daughtr of Guanajuato's governor, was six feet wide. Soledad's window was on the third lloor; she  was young, tender, and amorous. Her  father, senor Sedano, a man of immense  wealth and power, was as violent as rich,  more jealous than powerful. She longed  for men. lie, fearing they might carry her  oft", had a guard to go around his house all  night, for the house occupied a block by  itself, and the.governor was morbidly cautious.  Under this balcony In the moonlight rode  Anselmo, muffled up. The guard, who at  least could not prevent his stopping there,  walked round and round, passing Anselmo  every few minutes, in the intervals the  youth said: "Soledad! AVhat can I do?  Just die���aching for you? No, there is a  way to get you."  She rustled whitely up there In the balcony, trembling, and said: "I love you,  and want to Hy away with you. But  wouldn't they kill us, Anselmo?"  "To bo. killed together is to live. This  building opposite has a window facing  yours. All the balconies of both houses,  save those of the third stories, are barred.  Both yours and the opposite ones are open.  Did you know, Soledad, that your father  owns this other building, too?"  "No," she called down excitedly. "What  are you going to do?"  He laughed. "I have tented it from him!  Ha! ha! You are my crescent moon up  there���in a white cloud! t can scarcely  speak���I have rented it! The keys will be  mine tomorrow; the window opposite your  own���six feet from you���will bo mine tomorrow."  She sighed with long rapture. He heard  her lips make the faint sound of kissing;  and. not daring to stay longer, she withdrew. Ho rode away, and Beatrice, now  cm toot crept around the corner where,  dressed like a street vendor, she had  crouched and heard.  The following morning a lady, beautifully appareled, was ushered into the presence of the Guanajuaot governor. Sedano's  beardless face was that of an acrid, violent  man.  "Who are you? Sit down," he said.  "I am Beatrice Negrete, daughter of  your dead comrade."  "Ah, you look like him���the same reckless eyes."  "Senor Sedano you have rented a house  to the son of the mayor of Silao. Didn't  you know, discriminating parent, that  young Rejano is in love with Soledad?"  "What," cried Sedano, leaping up in a  fury. "How do you know? Drop your sarcasm!"  "He will run away with her; I heard him  tell her so," she said coolly.  He sat down, Inflamed and bewildered.  "Bah," he cried, grasping at a straw, "you  have some grievance. This is only a lie told  to harm him."  She   laughed   a   low,   continuous   laugh.  "Here  Is a  proof,"   she  said.  He received  _.and-read_thls_spasmodlc^npJ:ejn^SpJe_dad'JL  handwriting:  "Anselmo ��� love ��� Soledad ��� love!" No  more.  "Where did you get this? The son of that  plebeian  upstart in Silao!"  "Never mind, listen. You are hatching  a scheme to put him out of the house. Too  late. You trusted my father. Trust me.  1 have been spurned by Anselmo. 1 am a  cynic when it comes to husks of life. So���  our desires are equal. TMs is the plan you  will follow. You need Incriminating evidence. Such you cannot get unless you let  them hatch the elopinent. I give* you a  woman's word that I will learn the plans.  When the hour arrives you shall bo there  with witnesses, to catch him in the act.  Soledad Is so young that you will havo the  law against him and can ruin him. As  for her���it will not hurt her; she is too  Utile; the world will love her the more���  the world always does. Are there two keys  to any of the doors?"  "The two rear ones."  "Then keep those duplicates, Anselmo  will not know."  "But how can you learn their plan? In*  cried, turning to her with incredulous exasperation."  "None in the household knows me; take  me In as her maid."  He stared. Her eyes were steady and  brown. He blatantly denounced the  scheme; he would waylay Anselmo and  pummel him with immediate frankness.  Sho withered this Idea with her mocking  ridicule. She proved every other scheme  impossible won his faith at last, and made  him consent. The watchman who went  round the governor's house was bidden to  bo careless.  Soledad, all a tremble, and seining to  melt awav because of the blaze within her.  liked the' new maid. For Beatrice let her  have her wilful way, and stay awake at  night and run to the balcony in her white  night gown in the small hours to gaze al  the faded moon and dream with clasped  hands. Soledad's little palpitating heart  wa.s mad with love.  At length hearing one night a gentle  whistle under the balcony, she crept there,  let down a string and drew up this note:  "Tuesday at midnight I shall have horse?  ready in the rear of my rented house. Exactly as the cathedral bell strikes twelve  take the longest board from under the  mattress of your bed. thrust it out of your  balcony across the street to my window.  Creep but on it, cross the street, and have  no fear. Come to my window and tap.  You will have seen no one���but have faith."  She could hardly control her fingers to  write:  "My soul. I shall fly to you. I feel that l  hardly need the board. Oh, Anselmo, when  T crep out on it, T shall have to shut the  wooden leaf of my window quickly, lest  the maid run in and see me over the street.  And when you shut the leaf it has a lock  which snaps and cannot be opened from  the outside. Alas!���thus shall I be shut  away with no retreat, and must commit  myself to you."  The string brought this scribbled answer:  "So much the better. The window leaf  will shut away the past. T am the future."  Sho kissed and hugged these notes and  curled up in bed with them. She hid them  }n a tiny hole In the mattress, where, with  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed on deposits.   Present rate  three per cent.  GRANGE V. HOLT,  Manager Nelson Branch.  much more difficulty than she anticipated,  Beatrice found them.  Anselmo had removed no furniture into  the rented house and came there seldom.  One day at dusk, Sedano and the maid,  using the duplicate keys, entered. "This  door is nearest the rings In the gVirden  wall to which he will tie his horses," said  Beatrice. "The same door is nearest the  staircase up which ho intends to bound.  Hence, through this door will he come.  The watchman will be here ready to seize  him when he descends with Soledad. Leave  these plans to me. T shall instruct the  watchman. I shall properly place him and  dona Fatiga, wife of the treasurer, who  shall be informed of the need of witnesses.  As for you, lest we make a mistake in the  door, and he chooses the farther staircase instead, you shall enter this door at  half past eleven and wait within, near it,  to act if he comes there carrying Soledad."  The plan met Sedano's approval, who  rehearsed it with bitter satisfaction.  "Anselmo will hardly dare strike a  light," continued she, "and if there is delay above we shall all run up. Give me the  key for this first door; keep for yourself  that of the second, where you are to enter  and wait.'  She received the key.  On Monday  night  she brought the watchman.  "See here," she said, when they were  alone in Anselmo's rented house, "that  young villian Rejano is going to elope with  Soledad at half past eleven tomorrow  night. You have orders from senor Sedano  to obey me."  "Yes."  "Then listen. As yet no keys have been  delivered to Anselmo save that to this door,  therefore through this door will he come."  She pointed out to him the second entrance  which Soledad's father would use. "Before  half past eleven T shall station you in this  door. A man will there enter. That man  will be Anselmo Rejano, The enemy of  your master. You are therefore to spring  upon him. Taking him by surprise, you  can throw him down, perhaps stun, but  not otherwise injure him. put these irons  on him, and gag him. Then, barring the  doors which communicate with the rest of  the house, you will leave him a prisoner.  Your master orders that you then quickly  retire to your own house, and go to bed.  leaving the villian to him. Examine all  these doors now that you may know their  bolts in the dark. You are a powerful man;  Anselmo is a slight one; do you fear?"  "Leave the young cock to me. But what  am.I to get out of it?"  "This"���she paid him; "and twice as much  more on Wednesday."  The watchman went away and she sat  down in the lonely court on a ledge.  "t am a cynic," she said. "I would  rather devise a less cheap plan. But I will  not chew husks."  Tuesday night was dark. Tn the street  the only lamp was a smoky one a block  away.. At eleven o'clock into the deserted  court of Anselmo's rented house ������ came the  watchman and Beatrice in stealth. He had  wondered at the silken rustling of her  dress. She let him in through the first door  nearest the rings in the wall. She brought  him in the dark to the inner side of that  second door. There she stationed him, put  more money into his hand, laughed some  soft jest in his ear, and went away, rustling Into the darkness of-distant rooms,  He heard her no more.  Anselmo had saddled his two best horses  in Silao at dusk. All the wealth which his'  father had settled on him he had secretly  converted into bills and sewed them into  his clothing. At half past eleven he was  riding into the sleeping city. Little Soledad, trembling and eager Soledad, was  pulling out the board from under her mattress and staring at it with awe.  "It is very narrow," cried she, with a  sob.  On tho mountain silence broke the voice  of the cathedral bell ringing half past  eleven. The watchman in the dark heard  the footsteps of a man approaching that  second door. A key grated in the lock, the  door opened, a breath of night air came in,  and the door closed. A man's form was  brushing past the watchman. The latter  stretched out powerful arms, seized the  unseen body, threw his weight upon it, and  cast it to the floor. There was a cry, the  gag cut it short; there was a struggle,  the watchman's heavy knees on the chest  =o ��= the^victin*umadeJt_jiseless. Handcuffs.^  after a slight fight, overcame the power of  the arms of the captured. The watchman  bolted the inner doors, slipped through the  outer one, turned the key, and stole away.  Silence reigned, save for the rustling of  ��� silk somewhere In the darkness.  Soledad, in her chamber, turned her lamp  down low. The cathedral clock boomed  twelve. She threw open her balcony window, raised the plank, and thrust it out.  She trembled much, and the board all lint  fell. She put out all her strength, and the  board reached tho balcony across the way.  She gasped, looked at her empty bed.  blew out the light, and climbed out. Five  feet distant at the other end of the board  was tho unopened future. She began to  crawl. The board was very narrow and  tears ran down on her hands, and little  ���Soledad's heart was full of yearning.  Anselmo had entered the deserted court  and tied his horses to the rings in the wall,  lie opened the first door and sprang up tlie  staircase in the dark. The cathedral clock  was homing twelve. He came to the closed  Inner shutter of the window, which was  opposite Soledad's. Only the barest suggestion of tlie street lights came through  its chinks. He put forth his hands to tear it  open. They met a woman's face.. A woman's arms were about him in the dark,  a woman's lips met his, a woman's dress  was rustling.  Her voice whispered:  "Take me! It is Soledad. I found the window unlocked. T have but just came in."  He held her an instant in his arms; then  together, in love's impetuous, blind flight,  they hastened down the stairs, mounted  the horses and rode away.  Little Soledad, full of hope, the past  locked behind her, the future looked before  her, was creeping over the high bridge.  She caine to the glass, put her fingers on it,  tapped, and. murmured: "Open it, sweet  Anselmo."  But the window remained shut. She  waited -a. long minute. "Love must have  faith," she said.  "Love is faith."  She tapped again, up there, so high over  tho street, and there wns no response.  Five desolate minutes of failing hope gave  nlaco to despair. She was cold, too. The  irons of the balcony were too near the  glass to permit her to enter the balcony  itself. She was on her hands and knees on  tho board.  "I said." she wept, "T felt I did not need  the board. But, oh, Anselmo, you might at  least have got mo a wider one."  After a quarter of an hour, when she  was in a very pitiable mood, she managed  to sit down in the middle of the board with  her feet hanging over the street. She was  ton ashamed to call for help. Sho dared not  move. A fine mist, almost like rain, began  to blow about her. Thus forsaken, she sat  sobbing distractedly:  "You might at least��� you might at  least have got me a wider one."  Down the canon rode Anselmo and Beatrice, both muffled. The night did not give  up its secret and when his speed permitted.  Anselmo pressed her hand. He had one  hundred thousand dollars sowed in his  coat and vest. At Silan they would tako  the fast express for Mexico. She said  nothing, but wrapped her head and shoulders in her mantle. She hoped they would  not reach the station until the train was in  sight; then, once whirling away with him.

He lifted her  down, kissing her through her mantle.  He tied the horses and drew her Into the  waiting room, which was dark. Each  sought the darkness. She rested in his  arms and buried her face from the faint  radiance which came through the ticket  window.  "My life!" whispered he. "I have my fortune sewed in my coat. Ear away we shall  live together!"  The train whistled and they rose.  "One sight of you!" he cried, and, in the  light of the ticket window, tore the mantle  from her face.  He swore a terrible oath, and would have  leaped from her; she clung to his coat.  "Save me!" she cried, broken, but desperate. "1 have dared all. Can't you believe  and love this���this that is so terrible and  strong within me! Think of me!"  The train was thundering into the station; he, raging, wrenched himself free;  but left his coat in her hands. He was gone.  She entered the train in haste and went to  Mexico. She carried his coat and found  therein fifty thousand dollars. Tn her berth  she lulled herself to troubled sleep saying:  "Love and money. With half the husk will  life be worth the living?"  Anselmo galloped into Guanajuato at half  past five. The day was just beginning to  appear. Over tho street was the plank and  little Soledad sitting thereon.  "Mv heart!" cried he in agony.  "You might at least,  given me a wider  one-". . ��� ,     .    ,  He burst into his house. Scarcely had  he opened the door when Sedano leaped  upon him. But the handcuffs hampered the  attack. Anselmo hurled him to the floor,  where, his head, having struck the bricks,  he lay stunned. The lover sprang up the  stairs and threw the window open. She  came, damp and cold and weeping, into  his arms. He carried her down, and they  fled, lt is said that they went to Chile. In  Anselmo's vest there were fifty thousand  dollars. ,      '  In Mexico lives Beatrice, a stern, but  mocking woman; and every night as she  lies down, she says: "With half the husk  and money, is it worth the living?"  Gat Howard's Successor.  In speaking of the Canadian scouts now  in South Africa aii exchange has the following to say of the commanding.officer:  "Colonel Ross, tho Canadian scouts' commander, has been distinguishing himself  again in South Africa. If the Imperial  government would put a few more practical lighters in command of divisions and  have the snobbish therorists in a place  of safety tho end of "the war would be  hastened. The wily De Wet, whose death  has been reported several times, .��� is still  very much alive, it seems. Many hoped he  had gone to rest, but resting does not appear to be in his line, llo objects also to  seeing other people rest. That is why he is  so unpopular with the British. Some clay  he may run against colonel Ross, the Canadian, and then there will be an interesting  time. Colonel Ross is from Battleford. and  is now commanding tho Canadian scouts  in South Africa, organized by 'Gat' Howard. The west is proud of this gallant Canadian, who first won fame during the rebellion of 1SS5, when he acted as scout for  colonel Otter. He is climbing upward on  real merit."  The best of It is that Charley Ross left  Ottawa considerably put out because he  could not get on one of the contingents. He  went to Boston and through the good offices of a number of Ottawa officers secured passage on a hay boat bound for  South Africa. Arriving there he hunted  around for employment in a fighting line,  and at last struck lord Kitchener, who  made him a lieutenant in Roberts' Horse.  When the late "Gat" Howard organized  the Canadian scouts, Ross was with him  in it and on the former's death succeeded  to the command. That's perseverance.  to  to  9\  9\  &******************************  to  9\  ffL  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  m  %  1890-BBTABIJBHBD IN NBLSON-1902  Before stock taking this month a  REDUCTION  OF  10   PER  CENT  will be given on every dollar.  *  Hi  Hi  Hi  !_  Ht  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  But come early and you shall have our prompt attention.

Mayor Fletcher consoled alderman Madden for being so unfortunate as to  be left off the voters' list, and called on ex-  mayor Houston to testify as to the honest  methods he had adopted in revising the list.  The ex-mayor replied: "Yes; Fletcher, you  cooked tlie list to the queen's taste, just  as you said I did when I was mayor."

NEW YORK, January 8.���On the shores  of Lake Cleorge, near, the scene of the defeat of the French in 1754 by colonial troops  supported by the Mohawks, there is soon  to rise a heroic bronze statue of sir William Johnson and King Kendrick, his Indian ally, to whose sagacity the victory  was largely due.  This is the work of the Society of Colonial Wars. Frederick de Peyster, Samuel  P. Avery, and W. G. Langdon, the committee to select a design, have completed their  task and the statue is now being cast in  the work.6i of the Henri Bonnard Company  from a model by Albert Weinert.

There will be a  monument of granite 30 feet high, which,  standing at the head of Lake George,  willjae visible for_ many miles. Kcndrlck_ls  shown ln the costume of the Mohawk of"  that period and the statue illustrates an  incident which occurred at a council of war  before the victory. General Johnson appears wearing a coat of mail.  It is related that In August, 1754, the  French were making attacks in three directions. General Johnson proposed to divide his force into three different parties  to oppose them. Kendrick, when consulted,  picked up three arrows, handing one to  general Johnson, asking him to break it.  This the general did readily. Kendrick then  put three arrows together and handed them  to his ally, saying:  "Put them together and you cannot break  them; lake them ono by one and you will  break them readily."
