 el^on  ESABLISHED  1892  THURSDAY  MORNING,  JANUARY 23,  1902  DAILY EDITION  STOBT IS DENIED  FRENCH  OFFICIAL'S VERSION PUBLISHED  RECITES THAT BRITAIN BID NO  GREAT SERVICE  FOR  THE  UNITED STATES  !.     ST. PETERSBURG, January 22.���The  ��� , correspondent   here  of  the   Associated  i j- Press has obtained the following state-  i ir.ent from the Russian offlce regarding  i    the announcement made in the British  i house of commons on Monday concern-  : ing the negotiations between the powers  | before and  after  the outbreak of the  .'; Spanish-American war, and the assertions made by a British foreign official  \  to a reporter of the Associated Press on  ;  the same subject.    "Russia has always  i  been, and now is, extremely desirous of  ��� maintaining amicable relations with the  j United  States.    Russia never had any  intention of participating in any collect-  /e step  in  the Spanish-American dis-  mte,   which   did  not  directly  concern  ter, nor did Russia receive any'proposition having such  action in  view."   In-'  leed,   we  received   no  information   re-  ,    {anting  Austria's  alleged  initiative  or  ibout an attempt on the part of any of  !he powers to interfere in the interests  bf Spain."  - ;  PARIS,  January 22.���In  view of the  statement made by lord Cranborne, the  /British under secretary of state foreign  , 'affairs,  in  the  house  of  commons  on  , Mor -'jiy  on  the subject  of  representa-  ; tions made to Great Britain before and  , after the outbreak of the Spanish-Am er-  i ican war, and the dispatch of the Associated Press from London yesterday on  , the same subject, the correspondent of  the  Associated Press  made inquiry  in  an  authoriative quarter  here,  and  received the following explanation which  throws a somewhat different light on  the question.    In the flrst place, in the  Spanish   negotiations   at   the   end   of  March,  1397, to secure an intervention  of the powers in her favor, Great Britain* took the same attitude as France  and the other powers.    She neither"renounced  nor consented to join in collective action.   All the powers were hesitating until they ascertained the intention of the others.   Russia clinched the  matter   by   the   late   count   Buravieff's  blunt rejection of the proposal.    Subsequently, after general Woodfords conference with the Spanish premier, and  senor Gullon, the foreign minister, at  which  the latter indicated  the extent  of the surrender Spain was willing to  make to the United States demands, the  Austrian  government believing Spain's  surrender was sufficiently complete to  satisfy the United States, instructed its  . ambassadors to propose to the European  governments that a note be presented  at "Washington urging the United States  to accept Spain's offer and avert war.  The Spanish ambassador in London saw  A. J. Balfour, the first lord of the treasury, who must at that time have been  acting as secretary of state of state for  foreign affairs,  during the  absence  of  lord Salisbury at Beaulieu, France, who  "promised^ to-^instruct=lord-=Pauncefote^  to  act  alone,  or  with, his  colleagues,  with the view to maintain peace.    No  collective    action    was    agreed    upon,  though   Russia,   France  and   Germany  were   disposed   towards   a   movement  which would avert an outbreak of hostilities.    A  few hays,  however,  before  the war it was declared that Mr. Balfour had raised the objection to which  lord Cranborne alluded to in the house  of commons  on  Monday,  against, any  note whieh would have the appearance  of putting pressure on the United States,  or offering an opinion on  the United  States' attitude.   The Austrian proposition then fell through, and tlie subsequent joint resolution of congress rendered   any  further  action   out  of  the  question.  This was the extent of Great Britain's  action in favor of the United States.  The statement of a prominent British  foreign office official, quoted in the  London dispatch of the Associated  P'.ess, regarding France's alleged support of the Austrian proposition, is declared to be correct. France did not.  back up the proposal, and the French  ambassador in London confined himself  to making an inquiry as to what view  the British government took of the matter. France's attitude throughout was  friendly to the United States as well  as to Spain. She took no initiative in  any suggestion tending to put pressure  on the United States, nor at any time  requested Spain to resist. Her influence  was always directed, in the pour parlers  of the powers, to maintaining peace.  Rossland's Criminal Calendar  ROSSLAND, January 22. ��� Frank  Meyes, a stranger in the city, was sentenced to nine months imprisonment  in the Nelson jail for petty larceny.  Public gambling was opened up again  here a day or two ago and last night  the police raided the gambling houses.  Eight dealers were before judge Boult-  bee this morning, and were fined $10  each. Six of the number refused to  pay the fine anfl say they will serve 30  flays'in the cells'.  Displacing the Telegraph  CHICAGO, January 22.���The Illinois  Central railway within a short time will  ihav_   all   principal   stations   along   its  Jine equipped with  telephones for the  use of officials and employees in transmitting the orders and messages of the  company. Those who have experimented with the system claim for it  many advantages over the old telegraph system. They assert that by  means of the telephonic system the service will be practically revolutionized  with slight improvements, which are  inevitable, the telephone will furnish  greater safety for train orders; that the  erst of train operation will be decreased  and the results obtained vastly better  and that no less important is the con-  si a-nt personal contact between officials  and employees which the promoters say  is certain to result in a higher class  of service.  MOANA BROUGHT NO NEWS  Heard Nothing of Missing Condor  VICTORIA, January 22.���There is no  news of the Condor, and naval men are  considerably worrried. The Phaeton is  due at Astoria for orders, and the  Egeria will probably be ordered to sea  today to search for the mising craft.  The cutter Grant from the Vancouver  island coast reports that the Indians of  Barklay Sound have found a ship's  boat, which many believe to be a warship's lifeboat. It is sixteen feet long,  white painted inside and out. Some of  the officers of the Grant report that the  boat found is without doubt from a sailing vessel, probably that of a coasting  schooner whose wreck was seen battering on the beach, two miles east of Cape  Beale. The wreck was badly broken up  and could not be identified.  The Moana which was so anxiously  awaited brought no later news from  Honolulu than the Alameda, which has  already arrived at San Frncisco. She  left Honolulu on January 15th. The  Moana brought news that the Indian  war canoe, which was transferred into  a yacht by captain Voss and N. K. Lux-  ton, who sailed from here on May 21st  last, and arrived at Sydney after cruising across the Pacific, was to sail on  January 12th to continue the voyage  via Singapore, the Malay peninsula,  Ceylon, the Suez, and England to Nov  York. Peter B. Drummond, secretary  of the Sydney Canoe Club, joined the  advenurous Victorians at Sydney.  The Adelaide papers brought by the  Moana tell of a case where the bark  Letterwe's master had been arrested  for contempt of court, he having endeavored to flee from the marshall, who  held the vessel In bonds for the payment of damages to a ketch which had  been run down. The bark tried to sail  away with the marshall. She was becalmed and the police captured her with  a steamer and towed her back to port,  where the master was fined for contempt. An epidenmic of bubonic plague  has .broken out among the natives of  the Fiji group.  The mission of Mr. Edgell, on the  new Hebrides group, has been destroyed  by natives in revenge for an attack  made on the villagers by the French  recruiting vessel Julia. The missionary  was absent in the Solomon group. His  church, school, house and property  were burned.  Vancouver Police Puzzled  ' VANCOUVER, January 22.���Two curious cases are occupying the attention  of the local police. The first concerns  W. Shebley, who was sentenced two  years ago to a long term of imprisonment for rape. During his incarcera-  -tion-=sevei*al=-package5_were_sent_tO-J"he-  gaol from, storerooms, whose owners  alleged that Shebley had deposited  same with them for safe keeping. Upon  the packages being opened they were  found to contain the communion plate  stolen from St. James church, Vancouver, about three years ago. Shebley is  now being tried for this theft, but he  swears that he never had anything to  do with the goods nor did he deposit  any packages in the storerooms in question.  The other case involves a charge of  piracy, two men having stolon a sloop  and some money from the harbor and  sailed to Nanaimo, where their arrest  was effected. The men were brought  back by the police and the sloop was  handed over to two sailors to bring  back. En route the prisoners informed  the police that two sailors had been  originally associated with them in the  theft and their statement is confirmed  inasmuch that neither the sailors nor  the sloop have been seen since they  left Nanaimo.  Farmer Buys Green Goods  \Vn_KESBARR'3, Pennsylvania, January  22.���A green goods story became known  through the trial oC the A. A. Church vs.  W. O. Ruggles case, which ended in couvt  today. Ruggles had Church's note for $200.  Ruggles had received some green goods  circulars and was impressed. He gave  Church, his brother-in-law, $200 to go to  Elizabeth, New Jersey, and exchange the  good money for the bogus. Church, added  $100 of his own. As a receipt Ruygles gave  Church a note (or- $2001 Ho was lleeced out  of tlie' S'iOO 'by the green goods men and  was so badly scared that he ran into the  woods, spent the night there, and being  penniless, walked homo. Ruggles seized  some ot* Church's farm property on an execution to collect the $200. The jury decided  that he could take all but two cows and  four tons of hay, valued at $7(i.  comfortable and of compelling him to realize that he occupied an anomalous position.  He would find that he was omitted from  the invitation lists of the king's personal  friends. Of course, on all public occasions  he would be invited with the embassy of  Mr. "VVhitelaw Reld, but in those more intimate functions where it is the man as  well as the oflice that is honored, Mr.. Wetmore would encounter a chilliness hard to  brook by a high-minded man."  No objection has been made at the state  department from a British source to the  appointment of Mr. Wetmore as a member  of the special embassy. The statement attributed to Mr. White, secretary to the United  States embassy in London, in which he says  no objection has been heard there, has been  accepted at the state department as indicating that the incident of some years ago  will not interfere with the appointment.  In diplomatic circles some surprise is manifested at the unusual interest taken by  this country in the coronation. This eov-  ernment, it is pointed out, is setting a precedent. Similar action must be taken on  like occasions throughout Europe, else offense will be siven.  Neither senator AVetmore nor Mrs, Wetmore will make any statement regarding  the incident which angered the prince of  Wales at Tomburg. Mr. Wetmore did not  appear in the senate chamber today.

He was admitted to  bail in the sum of ��2,000.  Whetmore not in Favor  WASHINGTON, January 22.���The appointment of William S. X\. Wetmore to lie  a secretary to the special embassy selected by president Roosevelt to represent the  United States at tho coronation of kins  Edward VII. continues to excite General  comment here. It is especially a favorite  topic of discussion in diplomatic circles, ft  is almost universally declared that Mr. Wetmore should decline tbe honor. One diplomat in speaking of the matter today said:  "Mr. Wetmore, of course, would be received with the embassy,and the kins;  not permit anything like a slight on a person who came with such an embassy, but  there are other means of making him un-  Will Reach Cascade in March  GRAND FORKS, January 22.���[Special to The Tribune.]���J. P. Porter, of  the firm of Porter Bros., the well-known  railway contractors, is here. He is engaged on the construction of the Great  Northern near Halls Ferry. He stated  that' the track layers last night had  reached a point fourteen miles from  Cascade, and seven miles from the ferry.  Several small bridges have to be put in  between the rail head and the ferry,  where the heaviest work is being encountered. Mr. Porter expects that the  rails will be laid to the ferry about  February 1st, where one trestle will  require 550,000 feet of timber. Cascade,  he added, will be reached not later  than March 1st.

Fortune Awaits Missing Preacher  ALTOONA, Pennsylvania, January 22.���  A fortune awaits the Rev. L. XI. Plumer,  who six years ago was pastor of the First  Baptist church of this city, but who ire-  signed at the request of his parishioners  and dropped out of sight. He was last  heard of in a small New York town, nobody seems to remember just what town.  Now he is wanted by John B. Henslee of  Denver, Colorado, who has a gold mine  for him. According to a letter received  hero from Henslee the Denver man was  made custodian about the time the clergyman left Altoona, of his holdings in a mining company which promised little or nothing. "If it pans out let me know," were the  clergyman's Instructions. After having been  twice abandoned the mine has again been  opened and a rich vien has been found.  Mr. Henslee says he has already a fortune  in royalties to turn over to the preacher.  Kaiser's Present to the Veterans  NEW YORK, January 22.���Prince Henry  will bring with him to the United States  a bronze cannon as a present from the kaiser to the central union of German American veterans who fought lii the war of lSOG-  1870, cables the Berlin correspondent of the  World.

There was no outbreak  until the parties met at the depot; where  a  large   crowd   of   people. assembled  awaiting the train.   Just how the1.affair,  started no one seems to know definitely,  but it is claimed that the flrst hostile  act was committed by the Odom faction.  The flrst person womiaea was Walter  Pennington., He opened fire, and in an  instant  the   shooting  became   general.  The   two   Dipperts   were  standing' together, and had no chance to get under  cover.    Henry was  struck by a bullet  and dropped dead where he stood.: An-,  toine's wound is in his side, arid it is  believed will not prove dangerous.

CHARGE OF FRAUD  Has a Success of Fises  RAT PORTAGE, Ontario, January 22.���  Another disastrous fire broke out here at  8:25 last night and nothing but the heroic  ���efforts of the,-firemen saved the Russell  House and other large buildings.

Becord for Fast Six Months  SPOKANE, January 22.���The party  of eastern stockholders in the Rambler-  Cariboo mine, which has caused such a  flurry on the market the last *��� month,  and a number of other men interested  ir. the property arrived in the city yesterday from a visit to the Slocan property.  B. W. McPhee and A. Coolidge, in  speaking of the property, said that the  .rapierad Vance in ^the jmarket value of  the stock was due to ther remarkable"  showings that have been made, especially between the fifth and sixth levels,  where recent work has developed an  exceptionally rich ore body. The shaft  between the two levels is now down 7Q  feet, showing four feet of ore, assaying  across the face 445 ounces in silver.  The concentrator plant is completed  and a thoroughly equipped mill is now  ready for work on the mine. The concentrator will not be run for about  three months on account of not having  water. A 10 drill air compressor has  also been installed on the property, giving 20 drills to the mine.  The mine is now earning 2 cents a  share per month, and when the mill  starts that amount will be doubled. All  this is taken from the clean ore, while  the concentrates' are being placed on  the dump, ready for the concentrator  when it starts running.  The earning capacity of the mine can  be best estimated by stating that in the  last six months the ore taken out of  the mine has placed ?60,000 in the treasury, put improvements on the property  worth ?40,000, and paid dividends. This  is due partly to the remarkable showings that have been made with depth.  Both the quality and quantity of ore inr  creases with depth.

Coronation Insurance  TORONTO, January 22.���If Edward  VII. were to die before the coronation  it would mean, in addition to the passing of the world's greatest monarch,  that nearly $15,000,000 insurance money  would be paid to his heirs and to tho  business men of England.  This immense sum, with the exception of $3,000,000 which king Edward  carries on his own life, and nearly  three millions placed by persons who  have an interest in his royal existence,  has been carried by the English companies in favor of the infinite variety  of tradesmen against the king's coronation. The merchants and tradesmen  of the great metropolis are spending  millions in money, counting on immense  profits during the fete week in whicli  the king is to have the crown placed  upon his head as the culmination of  the most magnificent ceremony the  world has known. If this ceremony  should not take place many of the-  traders would be financially crippled  and bankrupted, on which they pay  large premiums.  In conection with this insurance it  is pleasing to know that Canada is in-  -terested,-and-.thaWsey.eral__)L^h.eji^eonu-  panies have placed an insurance against  the king's coronation.

Pearsons, professor of l.nc-  lish literature in the university, who  has openly expressed his disbelief in the  infallibility of the bible. Exclusion  from the faculty or suspension for an  indefinite period has been suggi-sted  by some of the trustees as punishment.  At a meeting of the Methodist Ministers' association resolutions requesting the expulsion of Dr. Pearsons wen.1  defeated only by a small majority, and  then only at the earnest solicitation of  the trustees to permit the matter to  rest with them.  Methodist circles hero are greatly  agitated over the utterances of professor  Charles W. Pearsons of the Northwestern university. Presiding elder Hawley  of this district, said: "He has been  guilty of unmerited, unjustified, ridiculous assault on the Methodist church.  When he assaults the scriptural stories  of the works of the Lord Jesus ho profanes the documents of our faith in  Christ, and he would evince a large  measure of honesty by withdrawing,  rot only from his position as a teacher  in a Methodist school, but from Unchurch, whoso great history of God's  works he has traduced,"  INDIANAPOLIS, January 22. ���  Charges against president Mitchell, secretary Wilson and the executive board  of the United Mineworkers' of America  were brought before the convention  yesterday afternoon by Miss Milly Meredith, an ex-employe of the national  officers. President Mitchell showed  deep feeling in making the announcement, saying:  '"The time has come for the election  of national officers, and I am unwilling  to have this proceed until these charges  have been heard. I therefore ask tho  convention to hear these charges, and _  ask William D. Van Home of Indiana,  to take the chair while the charges are  being heard."  Delegate Harrison of Illinois/moved'  that Miss Meredith be sent for and  asked to explain the charges. The motion was earned. Miss Meredith, when  escorted into the hall, insisted on reading her statement. It concerned 'the  shortage of ex - secretary - treasurer  Pearce and alleged that president Mitchell and secretary-treasurer Wilson  did not give out all the facts concerning Pearce's action and they wilfully,  lied to the miner's committee- a year,  ago. She demanded an investigation of.  the books to see how much Pearce's  shortage was. It was intimated that  both Mitchell and Wilson sought to protect Pearce and for tiiat reason did not  give out all the facts nnd charges that  Pearce frequently presented bills for  double the amount of purchases. Sho  also said that Pearce's "extra money"  amounted to $2000 a year, while Mitchell and Wilson reported that he had  taken only $1G0.  Secretary-treasurer Wilson denied the  truth of the statement, and said it was  the outgrowth of spite. Miss Meredith,  he said, was recently let out as an assistant secretary. President Mitchell  made it known that he wished to reply  to the charges, but after a preliminary,,  exchange, the convention adjourned to  1:30. When the convention reassembled,  Mr. Mitchell addressed the delegates,  denying the stories contained in Miss  Meredith's statement The convention  appeared to bo with the president," as  his remarks were frequently interrupted  by applause.

Ardent prohibitionists may assail the findings of the Boston  committee as they  will,   but   the  fact  stands  out  clearly,  that the work of this body is now bearing fruit in that on honest doubt has  heen engendered in the minds of some  cf the most advanced temperance workers as to whether prohibitive legislation  "will create the improved social conditions their propaganda seeks.   It cannot  be   gainsaid   that   the  state   of   Maine  _-=offQi_-s__the_i.l)est__object--lesson-^on^the  continent as to the practical workings  of legislation of this kind.    Maine has  been more or less of a prohibition state  for over fifty years.    The first temperance  wave swept over the state more  than seventy-five years ago, but this was  religious in its nature, and was not rendered obnoxious by legislative mandate.  It was the most effective restraint upon  the liquor traffic that Maine has known,  the   consumption   of   spirits   being  reduced    by    two-thirds.      The    success  achieved    by   these   moral   suasionists  n-fade   them;'   a   pollitical   factor   whi.ch  was   their   undoing.     The   Democratic  party saw an  opportunity of carrying  the state if the support of the temperance workers could be enlisted and prohibition became a live political issue in  "18.9.    The success of the combination  was easy and  Maine got its first prohibition law in 1851, the measure being  drafted  by general  Neal Dow.    It prohibited the manufacture of liquors, and  also the sale, except for medicinal and  -i.echanical purposes by duly authorized  agents.   Since then the prohibitory en-  --.cl.men.ts  of the state  have continued  to be a cause of dissension and turmoil.  The rum riots followed five years later  and for two years the stale was without  prohibition, but in 1858 the prohibition  if.tue was again affirmed  by a popular  vote which brought in a more elaborate  n.casure   than    its   predecessor.    Even  this did not meet the evasion practiced  nnd the demand on the part, of the prohibitionists for more legislation has had  to be fed even since and remains unsatisfied.   The conclusion arrived at by  the  investigators  is  interesting.    They  find that legislative prohibition fostered  a feeling of security detrimental to the  (ause of tempsrance, and that the political end of the combination has swallowed up the moral.

Whether the city of  Revelstoke, or the city of Nelson, or  the city of Kaslo is composed of one  ward, or two wards, or three wards for  election purposes, is a purely domestic  concern which the provincial government, might with safety leave to the  judgment of the men whom tho electors  return tq administer their municipal  affairs.  Buttering up America  BERLIN, January 22.���During the  course of the debate of the chancellor's  department in the reichstag today, tbe  imperial chancellor, count Von Buelow,  referred to the relations between Germany and the United States. "I can  only repeat," he said, "what I said three  years ago in the reichstag, and I believe the views I then set forth in detail will today meet with the concurrence of the house, namely that we are  filled with an earnest desire to maintain  on the basis of reciprocity and mutual  appreciation the traditional good rela-  itons which have always existed between ourselves and the United States.  The voyage of prince Henry to America  is an expression of these good relations,  and I am convinced his reception will  be in accordance with the friendly feeling the two great nations have for one  arother." The chancellor's statement  was greeted with prolonged cheers.  Increase for School Teachers  ROSSLAND, January 22.���Rossland's  new municipal council is now in  office.

Seated  opposite her in the first-class compartment  of the train that, leaving Berne rapidly  behind us, pulled Its way toward Bale, 1  could only gaze at her In silent rapture.  We had not exchanged a word; my unknown divinity had been, absorbed in a  novel, and had only raised her glorious, velvet brown eyes once or twice to scan the  uninteresting landscape. Slie, too, was a  musician, a bond between us that 1 had  been charmed to observe, for she kept  close beside her and guarded it with jealous care, a violin case. Mine reposed in the  rack.  Suddenly my beautiful vis-a-vis dropped  her book. Hastily X stooped and gave it to  her, and she thanked me with a smile that  revealed purest white, rather large teeth.  "Shall we syon arrive at Bale?" she asked,  and I thought what an exquisite contralto  voice she possessed. "1 am so tired."- She  pushed back the loose ..waves of ruddy  golden hair that fell In 'profusion around  her lovely face. J. think il was tlie hair,  which looked a mass of living gold when  the June sunshine fell upon it, that had  first attracted my attention.  "We have four hours before we reach  Bale," I' answered, determined, now that  the ice was broken, not to let the flow of  conversation freeze into silence. "You have  had  a long journey  alreiidy?"  "Yes; and I have a. weary timo before me.  I am going on to London."  "So," I said eagerly, "have I. I am going  to Rome. I am a musician, a professional.  "You play the violin,  too?"  "Y'es," she answered; "yes, I play. I love  my instrument."  A strange smile parted the beautiful,  though rather heavily moulded lips, as she  looked down at the violin case. I wished  she would smile at mo in such a manner,  and 1 felt jealous of anything, even insensate wood, that took her attention from  me. Doubtless I betrayed in my expression  the admiration I felt, for sho colored faintly beneath my ardent gaze, but, to my relief she did not appear annoyed; in fact  smiled almost too broadly to please me.  and I began to fear that she was laughing  at me. Perhaps I looked a little hurt, for  she composed her features immediately, assuming her former expression of mournful sadness, and seemed inclined to resume  her book.  "The scenery isn't much to boast of about  here," I observed quickly, "but that's a  rather pretty chalet,  isn't it?"  "Yes," she agreed, "I should rather like  to live in a house of that description. So  peaceful, so quiet; far removed from the  roar of the world." She sighed deeply and  I fell to conjecturing what shadow of sorrow had darkened that young life. I noticed that when we stopped at a station  she betrayed some uneasiness, and seemed  glad when the train started once more. 1  therefore came to the conclusion that she  was afraid of being pursued, and I grew  quite excited and determined to defend her  at any cost.  "Madam," I said, rather losing my head,  "pardon me if T tell you that I can see  you are in trouble���that something causes  you uneasiness. Believe me when I say that  I only long to help you; that you may command my services in any capacity. I spoke  thus, for we were slowing down, and I saw  the beautiful face opposite me pale and  a sigh escaped the lips. She started at my  words, and looked at me earnestly.  "Would you really help me?" she said,  in those low rich tones that acted on my  nervous system like music. "Ah, I need a  friend."  "Then Geoffry 'Wilmot is at your command," I cried enthusiastically. " Command  me lo do anything a.nd it shall be done."  "Thank you," she said with a sigh, holding out her hand, which 1 took and kissed.  ___Wo_are_nearing- ,-arc^wo .iot-?-'-L^"   "Yes," T said as the train steamed into  an ugly little station.  "f wonder," she said, "if you would mind  getting me a glass of water. T am so  thirsty."  Delighted lo obey her slightest wish, T  flew to Ihe buffet, nnd was absent but a  short time. When T returned my comnnnion  thanked me very sweetly, but barely  touched the water. "There's a commotion  hero," T said cheerily. "The policemen are  looking for a. thief, f hear, who Is supposed  to bo escaping."  At the words my companion sank back  agnlnst the cushions.  "ft Is all over with me," she murmured.  "Mr. Wilmot. you said you would be my  friend. The lime has come lo prove it If  you  meant what you said."  "What���what, do you mean?" T asked  aghast. "Good heavens, you nrc not n  thief?"  "Thief, no," she answered rapidly; '.'and  It is no thief that is being searched for. 1  am a political refuge��� i am escaping to  England, the land of the free. Jf 1 am  caught now, death���und even worse���will  be my portion. Oh, save me from a fate  I dare not contemplate. Save me now and  I will bless you for evermore."  Her agonized dark eyes gazed straight Into mine. Her hands clasped mine as she  poured forth the above confused tale. 1 felt  at that moment as though I could hiwe  faced a regiment of Cossacks for her sake  ���aye, and fought them, too���deeming it  gain to lose my life for her sweet sake.  I said something to that effect and she  smiled.  "But, what is it I am to do?" I asked  anxiously. "Tell mo and  I will do It."  "You must only say when the men come  that T am your sister,".she said," and that  will disarm all suspicion."  It was with feelings of anxiety and excitement that I awaited the advent of the  gendarmes. They came���an official, awe inspiring quartet���and thrust In befeathered  heads,  looking at us with  severe eyes.  "Your names," said the leader authoritatively.  "Geoffry and Margaret AVilmot, brother  and sister," t answered, readily. "Incognita" glanced at me gratefully. She had  shaken the golden flowing locks about her  face, and thoy permitted but a slight  glimpse of its beauty.  "We must search the carriage," said the  officials, and, accordingly, they did so most  thoroughly, oven going to the extent of  insisting on my Gladstone being opened  and examining my collar box, as though  they imagined that the object of their pursuit would  take refmre there.  "Evidently he is not here," said ono of  the policemen. "Come, we must go on."  "Did you hoar?" 1 asked excitedly, as the  intruders laboriously descended fo tho  platform, where an interested crowd  watched their proceedings; "the man spoke  of he."  "Yos, yes, T heard." said my companion.  "Have you any brandy? 1 feel as though J  will  rainl."  In groat alarm T hunted for my flask and  gavo lt to her.

Sho said no more, but descended from the  carriage, I following her, thinking how  wonderfully slie carried off her great  hei-hth.  "Wo will part now," she said, pausing at  the entrance to the waiting room. "Your  train starts soon. Good-bye Mr. Wilmot.'"  "You will not forget your promise," 1  said, entrc-utingiy, "to send me a lock of  your hair."     ' '  I looked at her beautiful hair. She nodded her head.  "You shall have it," she said softly, "do  not fear."  And thus we parted, and I suddenly felt  that tho world had grown dark and drear.  J could scarcely wait for that promised  letter from my beautiful unknown, ot"  whose name even I was ignorant; but one  day there came a parcel from Loudon���a  ��� rather bulky one���addressed in a bold hand.  I removed fold after fold of tissue paper  until the object of such careful packing  lay before me, and I started in utter stupid  amazement and bewilderment at���a golden  wig of the lovliest hair imaginable, and  pinned to the scalp was a letter addressed  to me. It read as follows:  "You see I am keeping my word as regards sending you a lock of hair with great  generosity; for f am sending you the whole  blooming concern. 1 don't know when I enjoyed anything more than those few hours  with you, my impressionable young friend.

"JACK AI-LAWSOM."  McKinley's Memorial Fund  CL1-VJ-LAND, January 22.���Colonel Myron T. Herrick's statement of yesterday,  in which he points to the fact that the contributions to the McKinley memorial fund  show a singular discrepancy in the offerings from men of wealth, has caused considerable speculation as to the cause of  this seeming negligence on the part Oi.  those who, it was thought, would be the  principal  contributors to  the fund.  AVhen asked today for his theory in regard to the matter, colonel Herriclc would  venture no opinion other than that given  yesterday���that the busy men of alfalrs  had delayed their contributions until they  had forgotten their duty lo the memory of  the martyr president.  Among tlie members of the memorial association the impression seems to prevail  that the wealthy manufacturers and others  would respond most liberally to a personal  solicitation, but as the purpose or ihe  memorial to bo erected at Canton is that  of a purely voluntary offering of the people no effort will bo made to swell the fund  by a direct appeal to the heads of the great  commercial  industries.  Colonel Herrick's statement that the  wage earners and the school children are  showing their unfaltering love for the  memory of the late president is verified  day by day as the returns come in. The  bulk of the funds so far contributed have  come from the masses of the people.  Workmen in the great iron and steel centers of Ohio and Pennsylvania are arranging to set apart the proceeds of a day's  labor to be contributed to the fund.

"He can if he can get th'  money,"  said Mr. Hennessy.  "Well, sir," said Mr. Dooley, "here's  a judge on th' binch says twinty-five  dollars is as much as a man needs to  ei:ther th' sacred bonds���twinty-five  dollars beside th' nerve, an' he has to  have that annyhow. Th* pa-apers has  tcok it up an' some is f'r it an' some is  again it. A few iditors believes it can  be done on less; others think it can't  be done undher thirty at th' outside.  A lamed lawyer say. that a man who  v/nd lure a young girl away from her  music lessons whin if she asked him  f'r twinty-six dollars he'd have to signal f'r help, is nawthin' short iv a  crim'rial. Nearly all th' ladin' acthres-  ses in th' counthry has been interviewed an' they say that if married at  all they cud not see their way clear f'r  less thin a millyion iv money. They  think th' judge meant a divorce. Look-  in' over th' argymints pro an' con,  Hinnissy, I come to th' conclusion that  th' judge is wrong an' times has  changed.  "Whin I was a boy all a man needed  vas a little encouragement fr'm th'  fam'ly, an account with a liveryman  an' a small pull with th' parish priest  an' there he was. 'Twas well if he had  a job, too, but if he hadn't it wasn't a  bar. A marrid man can always find  wurruk to do. He's got to. But no  Ivan iver thought-��� iv askin' him to  skin open his bank book. They wasn't  anny such things. They wasn'a'anny  banks. Hedidn't have to pin a cash-  .. ier's check to th' proposal an' put in a  sealed bid. If th' girls in my time an'  this part iv town had to wait f'r an  opulent business man with twinty-five  or thirty dollars, manny iv thim wud  be waitin' at this minyit.  ''We . looked on mathrimony as a  dhraft on posterity, as Mark Hanna.  wud say, an' not as an invistmint. We  a*gied that while tn' childher was  growin' up we'd be; undher no expense,  an' when they'd finished their schoolin'  an' was able to take up th'. stern jooties  iv life an' go to wurruk, say between  th' age iv siven an' nine' they cud  support us in luxury. Th' young ladies  had none th' best iv us. They had no  money, too, along with th' rest iv their  charms. It was no case iv matchin'  coopons in thim happy days. Th' father  iv th' family niver thought iv sindin'  in an expert accountant to look over  th' young man's books an' decide  whether his invistmints was sound, an'  if th' young man had th' nerve to ask  his father-in-law was he still on th'  payroll 'twudn't be th' sacramint iv  mathrimony he'd require. If th' young  man was kind to th' dog, smoked  seegars that was not made be th' rubber thrust an' cud pass ivery second  saloon without, a pang, he was illegible  -n--to=enther-th^first-fam_ies-in-_th_.  neighborhood an' sometimes even th'  last. We was too delicate f'r to speak  iv marredge as though 'twas like buyin'  a pound iv tinpinny nails. During th'  coortship no wan around th' house iver  let on what, annything was in th' air,  though 'wanst in awhile, they was a  giggle whin th' dure bell rang an' th' oV  man wud give a wink to th' clock an'  go out into th' kitchen. We spint most  iv our time in th' kitchen while th'  preliminaries was bein' arranged. Th'  coortship, I think, wint on be a complete system iv signals long befure  Marconi' come into th' wurruld, but  wan night th' wealthy heiress come  back fr'm th' parlor an' fell into a clinch  With her mother an' th' proud father  yawned an' wint to bed. That was all  they was to it. No one assayed young  Latharyo Hinnissy iv th' sixth ward.  If they'd heard he had twinty-five dollars, they'd begin f'r to make an allybi  ready f'r him. I mind whin Hogan was  goin' to marry Cassidy's daughter. 'I  haven't a cint,' he says. 'Hurry up an'  marry thin*,* says Cassidy, or ye might  have.'  "That's th' way it was in thim good  ol' days, an' be hivens, I think that's th'  way it is now among th' likes iv us.  An' that's a good thing f'r th' men that  own th' rollin' mills. It wudden't do to  t-ke anny chances goin' up an' down  Ar-rchey road offerin' ye'erself without th' cash forfeit. Some wan might  call ye. But. it's diff'rent among th'  best fam'iies. 'Tis far diff'rent. I read  be th' pa-apers in this conthrovarsy  that if a man can't show down a bank  account that wud make Andhrew Carnegie feel like goin' back to wurruk,  he might as well make up his mind tc  remain a gay bachelor till he falls fr'm  th' cab f'r th' last time.

It's not so hard  to get a millyion nowadays if ye pick  cut th' right people to get if fr'm, but  it. takes some time an' befuie th' eager  suitor has landed enough to sit in th'  gf.me, he's considerably past th' age iv  censint.    Manetime  father,   too,  hasn't  been    idle.      He's    bethrayed    a    few  thrusts himself ah' put a story or two  on th' house.    So whin th' young man  comes up wan night, an' lays down his  pile an' suggests that th' time has come  f'r to hasten th' glad evint, father says:  .'I'm afraid, me boy, that ye're a little  sluow.

An' so  it goes  through  th'  years  until  marredge,  Hinnissy,  is re-  sthricted  to  th'  very  rich  an'  th'   extremely poor who're almost all marrid  alieady.  "I don't know mesilf what to think iv  it, Hinnissy, and I don't know that I  ought to worry about it. 1 haven't  noticed anny reduction in th' number  iv marredge licenses day be day. Th'  Kubolowsks an' th' Wittsinkis still  are exchangin' vows, an' if they've got  more thin twinty-five dollars apiece  I'd like to know where they got it an'  notify th' pollis.

The  text is in verse fifteen, chapter xxi., and  reads as follows: "And he measured the  city with the reed, 12,000 furlongs. The  length and breadth and .the helghth are  eflual."  He concludes that this represents a space  of 4G9,7S3,OSS,000,000,000,000 cubic feet. The enterprising statistician sets aside one-half  of this space for the throne and the court  of heaven, and one-half of the balance for  streets, which would leave a remainder of  124,19S,272,000,000,000,000 cubic feet. He then  proceeds to divide this by 4096, the number  of cubical feet in a room sixteen feet  square, and this gives him au,B21,S43,V5u,O0u,uuo  rooms of the size indicttuea. He then proceeds upon the hypothesis that the world  now contains, always has contained, and  will always contain, 9!)U,UOO,UOO,UOO inhabitants, anu that a generation lasts for  thirty-three and one-third years, which  gives a total number of inhaoitants every  century of 2,29V,UOu.OUO. He assumed that the  world will stand 1000 centuries or 100,000  years, which would give a total of 2,970,000,-  U00,000 inhabitants for this period of time.  He then reaches the reassuring conclusion  that if 100 worlds of the same size and duration, and containing the same number of  inhabitants, should redeem all the inhabitants there would be 100 rooms of the size  indicated for each iierson.  Men have not thought so much about  the size of heaven. They always thought  that there would be ample room for those  who would be able to get there.lf a lack  of room were possible in the divine order  of things, it would probably be at the other  place, judging from the pronouncements  that are made from time to time." Room has  never been a matter of serious consideration with men who have paused long  enough in the whirl of events to meditate  on the blessings which are to follow "*T life  of righteousness. The main question, and  the one in which all men are concerned,  is the simple question of the shortest, best,  and safest way. Put in different language,  they want to know how to get there, and.  if the studious statistician will figure out  some plan that will meet with general satisfaction along this line, he will probably  smooth out the furrows that now mark the  faces of many sinners.  to  to  to  ���to  to  to  m.  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  >��  ft  ft  ��  ft  ft  ft  ft,  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  %  18.Q-BBTABHSHB1D IN NBLSON-1902  Before stock taking this month a  REDUCTION  OF  lO   PER   CENT  will be given on every dollar.  ��_  *  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  Hi  But come early and you shall have our prompt attention.

Mr. Teller offered the  following concurrent resolution, which  he asked to go over until tomorrow:  "Whereas, it is announced that sentence  of death has been passed upon commandant Scheeper of the Orange Free  State army, now a prisoner of war in  the^hands-of-the-British-forces-in^South-  Africa, and whereas, it is known that  said commandant Scheeper was captured while lying sick and wounded in  a hospital, such capture being in violation of articles one and five of the Geneva convention, and whereas, his execution by the British will lead to acts  of retaliation and reprisal, be it resolved, by the senate, the house of representatives concurring, that the president request the government of Great  Britain to set aside, in the interests of  humanity, such sentence of death and  accord commandant. Scheper the privileges and immunities guarranteed~un-  der the Geneva convention.  Litigation Over Oil Lands  CHICAGO, January 22.���William Odenath of Philadelphia, is striving to  gain possession of thousands of acres  of land in the Texas oil belt that he  says were granted to his father by general Sam Houston for service in the  Texas army in 1836. According to his  story, told yesterday, he is the only son  and heir of J. J. Odenath, the original  grant to whom, aggregated 1476 acres,  in Kinney, Valverde and Zavalla counties. Later the father received another  giant in Erath county. When the elder  Odenath and aboiU forty other soldiers,  who had received like concessions, went  to look over their ground nearly all  were killed. Odenath escaped, but his  papers were destroyed. The grants were  renewed in Austin, Texas, in 1839. After  the old soldier's death the great property in Texas was almost forgoten.  With the discovery of oil in lands  closely adjoining, began a search for  the holders of the Odenath property.  Many offers of purchase have been  made, but all were refused.  Isekocy diia  Stormy Conservative Ceremony  LONDON, January 22.���The ceremony of  consecrating the Right Rev. Charles A.  Gore as bishop oC Worcester at Westminster today was .attended by an extraordinary scene of tumult. The objectors were led  by John Kenst!, the anti-ritualist crusader.  Bishop Gore's editorship of "Lux Mundi"  and the fact that he is the founder of the  monastic celibate society, figured largely  among the arguments of the protestors.  Most of the protests were ruled out ami  bishop Gore was confirmed amid shouts of  "farce" and "conspiracy."  Violent Deaths in the United States  The total number of deaths by violence  during 1901 in the United States was 7852,  the causes being classified as follows:  Quarrels 4640  U nknown   1291  Liquor     S20  Jealousy  2S4  "By highwaymen    193  Insanity 174  Infanticide    143  Resisting arrest  .'. 134  Highwaymen killed .. _    70  Riots     36  Self-defense       23  Strikes  :    20  Outrage    12  During the year there were 135 lynchings,  which may be summarized as follows: Of  these lynchings 125' occurred in the south  and 14 in the' north. Of the total number  107 were negroes, 27 white, 1 Indian and 1  Chinaman. The alleged crimes for which  they were lynched were as follows: Murder 39, criminal assault 19, theft 12, murderous assault 9, attempted criminal assault  8, cattle and horse stealing 7, complicity in  murder G, quarrel over profit sharing 5, arson 4, suspected murder 3, suspected criminal assault 1, murder and criminal assault  1, train wrecking 1, alleged theft 1, keeping  a gambling house 1, suspected of killing  cattle-l,-resisting-arrest-l,-bnrglary_l,_in_  suiting a white woman 1, forcing a white  toy to commit crime 1. Besides these nine  were lynched because of race prejudice,  threo for unknown reasons, and there was  one case of mistaken identity.  Span of Life Lengthened  The census statistics of the United States  have revealed the surprising fact' that the  death rates for the cities are relatively less  than those for the country. The proportion  of deaths to population has decreased 10  per cent. In the last decade and the improvement is confined almost entirely to  tho cities. This can be traced to the improved methods of sanitation observed in  all the progressive cities, but almost Ignored In tlie rural districts. The deaths  from consumption form a good example of  this attention to health. In 1S99 there were  243 persons per 10,000 inhabitants afflicted  with this disease, but in 1900 this was reduced to 190. Deaths from cholera, typhoid fever, diphtheria, etc., wero reduced  to a remarkable degree, but fatal cases of  pneumonia increased- from 1S9.9 per 10,000  in 1900 to 191.9 in 1900, being due to the epidemics of grip and influenza. Cancer and  kidney and heart troubles also increased.  The decreased deaths from consumption  has had the most to do with the increased  length of life of the average resident of the  United States, which has riseri'_rdm thirty-  one and one-tenth years tn 1890 to thirty-  eight and two-tenth years In 1900.

Neely Now on Trial  HAVANA, January 22.���During the  .examination by the government of  Neely, ex-director of finances for the  Cuban postofllce, on charges growing  out of the postofllce .frauds, Neely was  asked if he remembered writing to C.  M. Rich, his first assistant, in November, 1899, asking him to come to Havana, where there was a good opening  and where he (Neely) was making over  $50 a day. Neely said he did not remember writing this letter.  He paid he had ?6Q,QQ0 in his posses-,  sion when he . was arrested in Now  York, that this money was not a part  of the postal funds, but was given to  him tipon his arrival at New York. He  denied that he was in other business.  In answer to the government's claims  that the Matanzas and Santiago post-  offices showed that more- money had  been collected from the sale of postage  stamps there than Nely had reported  for stamps in his hooks. Neely explained that postoffice inspector- McFoster,  on his trip through the island in 1S99,  sold stamps to the postmasters, and that  postmasters sold stamps to each other,  and-that it was impossible under these  conditions to make the books tally.  Neely said he'had������written "destroy this  letter" on his letter to Rathbone'from  New York because in his letter he had  said things against; the military government and that the government was already against him because of an alleged  interview with him published in New  York. Reeves confronted Neely with  his statement that-he (Neely) had. seen  Rathbone the Sunday before, the burning of the stamps,.and. said that Rath-  bone was willing ijo go in on"'the deal.  Neely denied saying this to Reeves.  to  f\\  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  J!:                         ..            .       ._                                                            Si  Portland Cement  Fire Brick  Fire Clay  Sheet Iron  T Rails  HARDWARE AND IRON MERCHANTS  STOVES  Ore Cars  Blowers  Exhausters  Pumps  Graniteware  *Tinware  *&-  COOKING STOVES  RANGES  ������ NELSON, B.
