FORD  Ministers, with these two dangerous  disturbances ahead, are content to have  the proceedure debate drag in a leisurely  way at the risk of being exposed to captain Bowie's cutting sarcasms.  MORE -JOBBERY DISCOVERED  SOME LIVELY TIMES PREDICTED  WHEN PROCEDURE  BILL  IS  DISPOSED  OP  NEW YORK, February 9.���The London correspondent of the New York Tribune,  in a dispatch today says:    The  formation   of   Great   Britain's   railway  development corporation, under the laws  of New Jersey, for extensive operations  in building and purchasing electric lines  !n London and elsewhere,  is  not comi-  jjmented upon by tbe press.   A Conservative member of parliament smiled and  olandly remarked that "the Americans  ire coming on  fast and will soon be  unning everything in this  ti-rht little  ^sland."   Parliament itself is the great-  ;st . drag   upon    the    electric    transit  ���chemes of . the   metropolis,   scores   of  >rojects being now hung up awaiting its  anction, with a doleful probability that  ;uch legislation   can   be   secured   this  '/ear.     The  London   county   council   is  ,-reatly exercised over foreign inteffer-  nce with metropolitan transit, but the  rogressive majority receives little en-  ouragement from  Westminster,  for  it  !as comprehensive plans of its own for  lectric lines and sub-ways. ���" American  nergy and reserves of capital offer the  est hope for the early solution of the  ransit problem of the central belt, of  .on don.  'Onslow Ford's last work, a memorial  .iblet of John Ruskin, was unveiled at  Westminster Abbey in the presence of  I'ean Bradley and a small company of  rtists, Mrs. Waller S. Everan pulling  ue cloth away and disclosing the bronze  Yedallion above the bust of Scott in the  'oets' corner. It was the anniversary  ���f Ruskin's birthday and Mrs. Severan  Remarked that his motto had been  'Icoday."  > Lord   Dufferin's   condition   remained  ritical at midnight,   with   no   sign   of  batement of his weakness]  Parliament   continues   to   reflect  the  *meral opinion that party strife is ill  dapted to the holiday mood of the cor-  ���aation year,   and   controversial   ques-  |ions are avoided as bad form.   The op-  dsition  front bench  has  repulsed  ehe  vertures  of  the  extreme  Radicals  to  aise a debate on lord Lansdowne's rely to the Dutch note.  !, Closure was sprung upon the harmless  abating exercise   of   talking   out   the  ikrriage of a deceased wife's sister bill.  A fair start was made in discussing  be new rules of proceedure, and while  he opposition is stronger than expected,  Ir. Balfour has made it plain that the  government desires to minister to the  oimfort and convenience of the house,  hid will make any changes which the  jaembers desire.   While the debate may  ie* prolonged  a fortnight or a month,  here can be little bitterness when the  Ministers  seem  barely  half in  earnest  Cnd decline  to  take  a  resolute  stand  /here details are concerned.   The postponement of the question hour and the  arlieThour~of=tfie"Sie^tlrIg^of th-THb'u's'e"  -nay not be retained and even a longer  interval for dinner, with fixity imparted  Ip.the hour, may be rejected as an attempt  to  convert Westminster  into  a  [iov's school.  Veterans of .the commons whimsically  lieclare that tie only group capable of  mending the rules in an effective way  hr the prevention of the waste of time  fnd the obstruction of business are the  ationalists. They understand the  heel and cog in the mechanism of leg-  nation and proceedure, for they have  lade it their business year after year  i interfere with the normal action and  i'ock the work. They could frame the  lies which would tie their own hands,  id deliver the commons from their  *rn conspiracy for making themselves  i disagreeable. They only laugh bend their sleeves when proceeedure is  '.ken in hand, for they understand the  cilitv with which a fresh set of rules  ^n be broken through. There has  ���en no finer irony than Mr. Redmond's  mpathetic expression of respect for  |e English feeling of reverer,-.e for the  jadition of the commons, at the time  K'aen creeping paralysis had overtaken  JThe only question which excites acrid  tscussion  in these stagnant  times  is  t.e purchase of. horses for the army.  }r. Broderick has tried to stave off turner debt by dispensing with the ser-  Jces at Aldershot of the officer charged  Pith receiving a commission on Prus-  [an horses, and promising an enquiry  Jispecting the conduct of another officer  Implicated in the doubtful proceedings.  We  of the most stalwart  Unionists  fisert that he is playing with the sublet and ought to institute a searching  jivestigation into all transactions respecting the purchase of remounts.  'The education bill, which is expected  Jrheh the proceedure debate ends, may  Jring on a strenuous party struggle.   It  Is not known whether this bill, in handing over the control of the schools to  Socal authorities, will make it discretion-  |ary or compulsory for  them  to grant  lid   to   voluntary   schools.    That   is   a  I*|iiestion which may divide the unman-  |i<--cable   government   majority  into   irreconcilable   factions.     The   Irish   land  Ineasnre of small  calibre  promised   by  F.r. Wyndham may also be a source- of  Krouble now that the Ulster Unionists  Jare menaced with a formidable secession movement, headed by T. W. Russell.  ��200,000 Paid for Beef Contract  .LONDON, February 8.���The apparent incompetence and it is claimed, possible dishonesty, -which permeate the purchasing  department of the British army, as revealed this week in parliament, havo  caused a public agitation that augurs badly for tho war oflice. Judging from recent  and promised disclosures, scarcely any ot*  the supplies for the army in South Africa  were secured on business principles. Speculating contractors are now known to  have made hundreds of thousands of  pounds by reselling contracts. The opposition vainly endeavored to get details regarding the new supply of meat announced  by the government in the house of commons, with a view of ascertaining if a saving over the former methods will really be  effected. The government successfully  avoided answering, but the Associated  Press understands that the contract in  question was llrst resold at ��30,000 premium  and then at ��10,000. Then Cecil Rhodes and  the De Beers group handed over,. ��200,00,  and thus finally secured the privilege of securing the troops in South Africa with  fresh meat. These figures are llkey to be  shortly published here and when known will  doubtless add fuel to the fire of public indignation which threatens to center around  the secretary of war, Mr. Broderick, as  viciously as it did around lord Lansdowne  when the latter was sponsor for the early  blunders of the war.  A dozen or more committees of investigation are now sitting or are in process of  formation. But as the Saturday Review  says: "These are only too often synonyms  of oblivion." "Tlio fact remains," adds the  Saturday Review, "that we have been  swindled on a very large scale."  While these stringent criticisms of the  war oflice are being publicly aired, there  is proceeding beneath the surface a revolt  which threatens to be of even greater importance. The leading-authorities of the  volunteers, including many of the com-  .manders of tho best known regiments, several of them being titled persons and nearly all wealthy, are holding frequent meetings for the purpose of deciding on the  best method of defeating Mr. Broderick being appointed to hear the grievances, only  aggravated matters. The commanders of  the leading regiments had previously  formed themselves into a deputation to  wait on Mr. Broderick and he temporarily  declined to see them, but the secretary of  war stole a march on the members of the  deputation by announcing in the house of  commons that he had appointed a committee of his own in which not one of the dep-.  utation was included. His action created  intense feeling aniong the members of the  deputation who privately declare that the  volunteer" regulations and the "Dead head  committee" were introduced for the sole  purpose of making conscription possible.  Matter Under Investigation  DENVER, February 8.���News today says  that a demand has been made on governor  Orman by secretary of state Hay; at  "Washnglon, for an investigation of the  destruction, last summer, of tha buildings  of William Radcliffe. an Englishman located at the Grand Mesa lakes in this state  by a mob. Radcliffe appealed to British  ambassador Pauncefotu for redress, demanding $55,000 damages of tlie state of  Colorado. The trouble grew out of a dispute between ranchmen and Radcliffe over  fishing privileges and culminated in the  killing of a ranchman named Womaek by  one of Radcliffe's guards. A few clays later  his buildings on the lakes were destroyed  by fire, claimed to have been done by the  friends of Womaek in revenge for his  death. The matter was originally referred  to governor Orman early'in January, and  according to'the news, a.-communication  from secretary Hay has just been received  asking what has become of it.  the boy's mother about the matter. Young  Kohler, thoroughly frightened and evidently believing that he was going to be sent  to the penitentiary, stepped into the next  room, picked up a shotgun, placed tho  muzzle to his forehead and pulled the trigger. The top of his head was bown olff.  United Kingdom in a For  .LONDON, February 8.���Snow storms and  fogs envelope practically the the entire  United Kingdom. The weather is the most  severe known for twenty years. For a time  this morning London "was plunged in darkness, traffic was interrupted and navigation on the Thames and Mersey was very  dangerous. The unprecedented snowfall ne-  ccsstated the suspension of outdoor work  in many districts, and vehicular and train  traffic was carried on with the greatest  difficulty. In parts of Scotland and Wales  communication was entlrey blocked.  LONDON THEATRICAL TRUST  DESTROYS $10,000,000 IN  PROPERTY VALUES  ONE THOUSAND FAMILIES HOMELESS IN THE CITY OF PAT-  ERSON, NEW JERSEY  German Press and Lord Pam-cafote  BERLIN, February S.���The critics here  of Great Britain are indisposed to let lord  Pauncefote's note of April 14th, 1S9S, drop  with the explanation cabled from Washington that nothing, unfriendly to _the_United  States was meant thereby. They say the  fact stands that Great Britain did Initiate  a second proposal for a European remonstrance. The explanation that president  McKinley was privy to lord Pauncefote's  purpose and approved the proposal before  it was made, is wholly unaccepted here.  A person in a position to know the opinion  of the German foreign oflice said: "We are  disinclined to discuss lord Pauncefote's  motives. We simply nail the fact that lord  Fauncefote took a step, unpleasant for the  United States, and it was Germany's refusal that frustrated the same. Moreover,  documentary proof that Great Britain took  such a step, exists In the files of the European cabinets.   Mrs. Soffel's Condition Improving  PITTSBURG, February S.���Mrs. Soffel,  who aided in the escape of the Biddies and  was shot in the battle which resulted in  their recapture and death, shows considerable improvement in her condition today.  She is suffering more from mental distress  than from her wound nnd it may Lea week  or more before she can be removed from  the Butler hospital to the Pittsburg jail.  Her husband, ex-warden Soffel, has retained counsel for her defense, but says  he does not want to see her or have any  communication with her In the future. Mrs,  Soffel is receiving letters from all over the  country. Most of. them contain tracts and  advice of a religious nature. When she  opens a letter and '-fhids that it is one of  this character she turns it over to one of  the nurses without reading it. Many letters  are from attorneys, proffering their services free in her defense.  Receiving Some Hard Knocks  LONDON,  February 8.���William Archer,  the dramatic critic and author has taken  up the cudgels on behalf of the American  "Theatrical trust," or rather, against what  he claims to be the absurd criticisms anent  it  which   have   recently   appeared   In. the  .London Times." Mr; Archer points out that  ���he was  the first to denounce the "syndl-  ��� cate's unsuccessful attempt to terrorize the  press,"  and,  that therefore, he cannot be  accused of partiality.  "But," he adds,  "it  makes me a little tired, to- see the syndicate  subjected  to irrational  abuse,  which  can only exasperate its members and'ob-'  scure the real point at issue."  Quoting the London critic, who declared  that   Charles   Frohman   had   reduced   the  theatrical profession from art to a purely  commercial   basis,   Mr.   Archer  says,   "On  what other basis has it ever rester in America or England. .Truly  there have been  frequent instances in London and I dare-"  say America, where theaters have been endowed  in  the    interest    of   ladies   whose  beauty   was,   perhaps,    more   conspicious  than  their  talent.  Even  in these cases,  I  hope   profit  was   sometimes   not' lacking.  Were the American managers in pre-syn-  dicate days, given to embarking in enterprises for the sake' of art, without any hope ���  of profit.  The insinuation that Mr.  Frohman  is  degrading art  is  entirely  unjust.  From the Times the English readers cannot but gather that Mr. Frohman deliberately panders to corrupt tastes, and that  consequently  the  American   stage   is  less  decent and   reputable   than   the   English  stage. If the latter proposition is true and  it is very questonable, the fault certainly  is   not  Mr.   Frohman's.   He  degrades   the  .American stage neither more or less than  than George Edwards, Frank Guerzon and  ia dozen other managers degrade the English  stage.   Were  I  an  American  critic  I  should  warmly support  all  honest endeavors to break down Mr.  Frohman's monopoly,   and   should- remonstrate  with   him  for his really short-sighted neglect of native American art, but I certainly should  not assail him for trying- to make his theater pay.   What else-can he possibly, do?"  Roosevelt Junior Improving  WASHINGTON, February 8.-The following statement was issued at the White  House at noon today: The condition of the  president's son is favorable! The doctors  say that the president should, not go to-,  Charleston, as any time within sixty days  the disease may take a turn for the worse.  The president is also asked not to go to  Groton, as his visit.'might excite the boy.  Advice is, no immediate danger. Owing-, to  the request of the doctors, the nresident  has-abandoned  his  trip  to  Charleston.  Boundary Ore Shipments  PHOENIX, February 7.���[Special to The  Tribune.]���The shipments of ore from the  Boundary mines for the last week were  some what less than usual owing to a  break in the flume of the Granby smelter,  thereby closing the works for three days  in the early part of the week.

Seventeen Year Old Suicide  DECATUR, Illinois, February S.���Because  he did not know how to deposit money in  i bank and had committed forgery, John  Kohler, aged 17, son of a farmer living  near Decatur, killed himself. Kohler had  earned $20 and had come to the city to deposit it. When he stepped in> to the toller's window he presented a check bearing  his father's name. It was a forgery ana  an oflicer was called. He took the boy homo  for investigation. Arriving there the oflicer  stepped into one of the rooms to _talk. to  A Stormy Passage  NEAV YORK, February :8.���The passengers'of the American liner St. Paul, whiclr  arrived at Southampton nearly two days  overdue, had an unusually rough experience with wind, waves and fog, says a.  j..ondoii telegram to the Herald.

Ruskin Monument Unveiled  LONDON, February S. ���A bronze medallion memorial of the late John Ruskin was  unveiled today in Westminster Abbey in  the j>rosence of a distinguished gathering.  PATERSON, New Jersey, February 9.  ���A fire swept through here today and  in its desolate wake are the embers and  ashes of property valued in a preliminary estimate at $10,000,000.    It burned  its' way through the business section of  the city and claimed as its own a majority of the finer structures devoted to  commercial,  civic,  educational  and religious uses, as well as scores of other  houses.   There was but a'small tribute  of life and injury to the.conflagration,  but hundreds were left homeless, and  thousands without employment.    A relief movement for the care of those' unsheltered and  unprovided, for   has   already been organized, and mayor John  Henchelleffe said tonight that Paterson  would be able to care for her own without appealing to the charity of other  communities   and   states. ' The    great  manufacturing plants of the place are  safe  and   the  community,  temporarily  dazed by the calamity has already commenced the work of reorganization and  restoration.  The fire started at midnight, and was  only checked after a desperate fight  that lasted until late this afternoon.  Every town and city within reach of  Paterson sent firemen and apparatus to  the relief of the city, and it toolO the  united efforts of them all to win the  battle. A northerly, gale gave the conflagration its impetus and carried its  burning brands to kindle the blaze  afresh at other points. The firemen  made stand after stand before the wall  of fire, but were repeatedly, driven back,  and when victory finally came to them  they were begrimmed and exhausted.  An estimate made_from a. general inspection of the'smouldering ruins placed  the number of dwelling and apartment  houses destroyed at 500 and the families  left without shelter at 1000. The estimate, when order succeeds confusion,  may altar those figures.  The fire began its work of far reaching destruction at the power house of  the Jersey City, Hoboken and Paterson  Traction Company, which fronted on  Broadway and extended a block to the  rear of Van Houten street. It was in  the car shed that it commenced and it  was burning fiercely when one of the  employees detected it. It was leaping  through the roof and the gale was lifting it in forks and swirls when the fire  apparatus came clanging into Broadway/Main and Van Houten streets. The  firemen tried to hem it in, but it steadily  crossed Van Houten street in one direction, Main street in another, and gaining vigor as it went, burned unchecked  down into the business district. Every  piece of fire mechanism in the city was  called tout, but fire and gale were masters. A great torch of flames rose high  Jn^the^air^lighting^p^the^cojuMry^for^  many miles and carrying a threat and  warning to people and property in its  path. There were efforts to rescue furniture and stock, but the speed with  which the fire moved gave the rescuers  but little time. Property was often  moved to a place of presumed safety  only to be eventually reached and destroyed. The warning to many was but  brief and they were forced to flee, scantily clad into the streets glazed over  with ice and swept by the keen wind of  vigorous winter.  Main street was soon arched over  with a canopy of fire for a block, and  then for two blocks, as the flames fastened themselves upon building after  buildings. The firemen fought with  every resource of their craft and the impulse of desperation, but the flames  found new avenues in Ellison and Market streets and got beyond all control.  Calls for relief went out to every city  in this portion of the state and jaded  firemen labored on through the hopeless  hours of the morning. The city hall, a  magnificient structure, surmounted by  a great clock tower, finally caught and  with it went all of the splendid business  structures *that surrounded it. They  made a great furnace of fire that burned  with a fierce roar and radiance.of day.  There was a series of explosions and  scores of walls fell when the fire left  them strengthless. Flying fire brands  carried the conflagration over some  buildings and around others and it  therefore burned in an irregular course.  These brands finally cleared the tracks  of the Erie railroad and Ramapoe avenue, and a light on straight streets  started another great area of fire in  which the destruction and desolation  wrought was nearly as great as in the  other.  The second great fire started at the  angle of Park avenue and Washington  street and swept almost unchecked until in those thoroughfares there was no  more fuel. On the right, hand side of  Market street, until it encountered  Sandy Hill colliery, there was no barrier  to check it. On the left hand side of  Carroll street, it claimed St. Joseph's  church, a great stone building. It was  on this second great fire that the volunteer firemen from the outside cities did  their most heroic work. They fell  back only when they had to. The final  and one of the most desperate fights  of the day occurred in the mid-afternoon, back in the first area at the Ham  ilton club,   situated   at   the   corner   of  Church and Ellison streets.   The handsome club  house   caught and  the  exhausted firemen were rallied around it.  They were anxious to save the structure  and besides failure meant that the fire  might take headway among the properties adjoining the  club house.    The  building was doomed, however,  but a  torrent of water kept  the   fire  to   the*  premises.    The four walls of the club  house stood, but the roof collapsed ahd  the interior was completely burned out.  Paterson rests in a valley and the conflagration   was   an   imposing  spectacle  from the rim of hills that wall it in.  Columns of flame climbed high in the  air and shed their light for miles.   Hundreds of persons hurried into the city  before daylight to watch the work of  destruction  at   close   range.    The  fire  became a great popular spectacle that  claimed patrons   from   New  York  and  every outlying   town   ln   New  Jersey.  They crowded the regular trains of the  railways   operating  through   here   and  compelled   the   dispatching   of   extra'  trains.    Once in the city they crowded  around the firemen and hampered them  in their work.  Police lines were impossible.   In the  crowd came   thieves   and   looters,   but  there was not much pillaging.    Under  orders   from   governor   Franklin   Murphy, who hurried here from New Jersey,  "A," "C," "K" and "M" companies of  the  5th  National  Guard assembled at  their armories and were held as a reserve force.   The police, deputy sheriffs,  hundreds of special watchmen and firemen united in protecting property during the day, and when night came, an  order was given   closing   the   streets.  Despite these precautions of the authorities, there was much confusion in the  streets at night.   The fires left the city  in darkness.    Hundreds of belated visitors  crowded  around  the  depots  and  struggled in the dark for places in the  overcrowded trains.   The street railway  system was severely impaired through  the injury of its wires.   Early in the day  the mayor issued an order forbidding  the sale of liquor, but it was not obeyed  and there was considerable drunkeness.  Three relief-meetings were held during the afternoon, the principal one was  attended by governor Franklin Murphy,  mayor John Hicheffer, and recorder B.  S. Enior, who under the city's charter  is fire marshall.   In a few moments $800  was handed to the mayor for immediate  use,"but the chief magistrate said that  while the city had suffered a terrible  visitation, he was in a position to say  there was very little distress.   Two relief quarters were established,  but up  to.a late hour no applicants had visited,  one, and only a few had been attended  at. the   other.     Special   deputies   were  sworn in by the sheriff and sent to the  burned districts to protect life and property.  Scores of people were hurt and burned,  but the loss of life is not thought to be  great. There are many persons supposed to be missing, but in the excitement and fright most of these are supposed to be separated from their families and friends. Until order is brought  out of the chaos which existed here today nothing definite can be known.  Rueben Isleh, while serving coffee to  the exhausted firemen, was hit on the  head by a falling brand and it is doubtful if he will live; George Fitzmaurice,  a fireman who has been acting as driver  for fire chief Stagg, is also dying. He  was driving: an engine from Passaic,  when the horses bolted, and before he  could get them under control they  brought the aparatus against an electric  light pole, and Fitzmaurice, who had not  waited to strap himself in, was hurled  out upon his head. There is no chance  of-his livingr=A-Mrsr-Brownr-wh'o=it-was^  said was over 80 years old, was removed  from her residence just two doors froH  where the fire started in the car sheds.  She was taken to the residence of a  friend nearby shortly after midnight,  and died about an hour later. It was  said her death was hastened by the excitement consequent on her hasty removal to a place of safety.  the ship and the wind was biterly cold.  The Cunard Lucania reacher her dock  here today. Captain MacKay reports  fine weather all the way across until he  reached the eastern edge of the banks.  ��From there they had a lively gale all  the way. The operator in charge fof the  Marconi plant on the steamer held a  wireless telegraph talk with the Umbria,  in mid ocean, for several hours, and  over 100 telegrams were interchanged,  to be sent from the Lizzard and Nantucket light ship to friends of passengers. Sir Charles Cameron, bart., a  former M. P., was a pasenger ton the  Lucania. He is the father-in-law of  commander Clifton Slater^ of the British naval ship Condor, and is going to  Esquimalt to join his daughter, Mrs.  Slater.  FEAR REBELLION  AN ALARMING DISPATCH  FROM DUBLIN  DEWET SUFFERS SEVERELY  THE PHYSICAL FORCE PABTY 18  NOW IN THE SADDLE  IN IRELAND  Lost Close Upon 300 Men  LONDON, February 9.���-From .Wolve-  hdek, lord Kitchener   has   today  telegraphed a long description of a combined movement-of the numerous British columns with the object of securing  general   Dewet.    Lord  Kitchener  says  the advance began the night of February 5th, the whole force moving from  various direction and forming a continuous line of  mounted  men  on- the  west bank   of  the  Liobenbergs,   from  Frankfort as far south as Fannieshome,  and thence to Kaffir Kop.   The line then  advanced to the west, and the following  night the British encountered with their  outposts fifty yards apart.    They held  the line from Holland on the Heilbron-  Frankfort   block-house   line   to   Dorn-  klopf on the Kroonstadt-Lindley blockhouse line, while the columns were also  working in advance of the  block-house  lines to prevent Dewet's crossing.   The  advance   was   continued   February   6th  and Dewet was within the inclosure, but  realizing   his   position   he fordered  his  men to disperse and seek safety during  the night.', Dewet himself,  with  some  men and a number of cattle, made for  the     Kroonstadt-Lindley;    block7house  line, and at one o'clock in the-mon* in-*;,  when it was very:dark, by rushing his  cattle   at   the   fence   broke   his   way  through the line,   mixed  up   with  the  cattle  and  escaped,  losing  three men  killed.  Many attempts' were ��� made to break  through the line ton the 'night of February 7th,^reports lord Kitchener, the line  of outposts being attacked at various  points throughout the night. But very  few escaped, and ten dead Boers were  picked up in the morning near Heilbron.  "I did not get exact details of the Boer  casualties," continued lord Kitchener,  "but as far as I have ascertained they  consist of 283 in killed, wounded and  prisoners, as well as about 700 head of  horses and many cattle. Our casualties  were only ten."  WAS SCALDED TO DEATH  Gold Baicks inlOntario  RAT PORTAGE, February 9.���The  Imperial bank window was the centre  of attraction this morning, for upwards  of $20,000 in gold bars, the cleanups  from the Mikado and Black Eagle  mines, were exhibited there. A Black  Eagle brick, which was the product of  22 days running, is a very large one,  and manager Paterson says it is highly  satisfactory to him and demonstrates  clearly that there is plenty of gold in  the old region. He has plenty of ore In  sight to keep his 30-stamp mill running  continuously and from now on will  clean up monthly. He believes the  Black Eagle will be a dividend payer  from now on. The Black Eagle Mining  Company, of London, England, took  'over the mine last spring and spent a  large sum of m'oney in building a new  mill. Manager McMillan reports everything running smoothly at the Mikado.  ���They have plenty of ore in fright, -and  the veins give every promise of permanency.  Two Atlantic Liners in Port  NEW YORK, February 9.���The Philadelphia, of the American line, which  arrived today, broke the record for having the longest communication with the  land by means of Marconi's wireless  telegraph system. At noon on Saturday,  February 1st, the ship was a few miles  off the Lizard. Messages were then exchanged and the telegraphing was kept  up until niiihii'-ht of the following day,  when the- >!. .liner was 150 miles from  land. On account of the severe weather  the Philadelphia had to put into Cherbourg, where she was delayed for over  10 hours. The Marconi system was  working while the vessel was lying t'o,  the signals at all times being perfect.  Captain Mills said ho had never experienced such weather before as that  which was met on the voyage.

He was pinned under the engine  by his right arm, and begged the trainmen to cut 'off the arm with an axe in  order to save his life. A man was sent  for an axe but before it could be secured  the boiler exploded, and no one could  reach the engine because of escaping  steam. The fireman was dead when finally reached.  Strong Exclusion Act  NEW YORK, February 8.���Former  governor Budd, of California, is in this  city, after having testified in Washington before the committee in charge of  the Chinese exclusion bill. The failure  of the Kahn-Mltchell Chinese exclusion  bill to pass before the end of the session, he says in an interview, will mean  the extinction of the present treasury  regulations for the transit of Chinese  across this country, and will mean a  great influx of Chinese before the opportunity to enact restrictive legislation  occurs" again.  "The Khan-Mitchell bill now before  the house is so framed," continued governor Budd, "as to provide for tbe most  humane treatment of those Chinese permitted entry into this country and it  excludes perfectly all Chinese coolies  and laborers of all sorts. It is a bill  against which nothing can be said, and  there is no other bill under considers  tion which can in any way compare  with it for effectiveness. If enacted into  a law, it will fulfil all the purposes for  which it was drawn and will prevent  the entrance into this country of the undesirable element aniong the Chinese.  It makes adequate conditions for the  transit of Chinese across the country  under treasury regulations now in force,  and which have been considered effective heretofore."

LONDON, February 8.*���A dispatch to  the Pall Mall Gazette from Dublin, declares that the firmly rooted belief, in  influential circles is that nothing short  of a revolution is meant by the United  Irish League, and-that the advocates of  constitutional methods are slowly but  surely giving way to the strong physical  force section. According to the correspondent, lord Salisbury's speech of Wednesday last before the Union Constitutional club, leads people to hope that  the government has at last learned the  lesson that Home Rule cannot be killed  with kindness, and; that it has become  aware of the terrible havoc worked by;  the league throughout Ireland.  The correspondent adds: "Irishmen,  who have just returned from the United  States, aver that no support will be  given to the disloyal cause unless the  discussions and scenes in parliament  give place to something more active in  Ireland itself. The American end of the  campaign is being run by men who are  of the same stamp as Finerty, who recommends dynamite and rifles. Young  Ireland is being taught to believe in  the coming storm and to openly speak  thereof with enthusiasm. The policy of  kindness has, convinced tho peasantry  that the reign, of the;British is almost  at an end, and in truth the British statute book is already suspended, and the  court of the league is supreme."  Twelve' Burned in. St. Louis  ST. LOUIS, February 8.���Fire broke out  at 3:30 a. m. in the Empire hotel,*at Olive  and Beaumont streets. Twelve bodies have  been taken out.  ST. LOUIS, February 9.���An early morn-  Ing fire which destroyed the Empire hotel,  a large three story lodging- house at 2700  Olive street, occupied by men exclusively,  daused the death of eleven persons, and  dangerously injured eight others. Ten or  more had narrow escapes from death in  the fire or were more or less Injuted by being frostbitten. It is estimated that there  were between thirty-five and forty persons in the building last night, and It is  believed all have been accounted for. It is  thought that $20,000 will cover the damage  to the building and contents. The ilro  started about 3:30 when but few persons  were abroad and had gained considerable *  headway before it was discovered. "When  the engine finally reached the scene, the  whole front of the building was In flames.  By that time all who had escaped had  got out of the building by jumping from  the windows or climbing down ropes made  of bed clothes. A few escaped from the  ground floor through the front door. Almost every person who got out suffered  seme Injury or was frostbitten. Some  saved their clothing, which they carried  in their hands. After some delay nearby  houses were opened to the unfortunates  and they were given shelter from the biting cold weather. It was one of the coldest nights of the winter, the ground being  covered with ice and snow and everyone  suffering from exposure. After a short  fight the firemen got the flames under control and with the assistance_of thepoHce,   "made a search of the "ruins. Most of the  bodies of the victims were found in their  rooms, where they were suffocated or  burned.          Resembles the Durant Case  SAN FRANCISCO, February 9.���A mysterious murder, resembling In some features the noted Durant case is now puzzling the police department of the city.  The body of Nora Fuller, a 16-year old  girl, who disappeared from her home on  January 11th, was found lying naked on a  bod in an untenated house on Stutter street  yesterday afternoon. The girl had been  dead some time, as decomposition had set  In. There was nothing in the house to Indicate the means used to take her life, but  the posture of the body, and its condition,  together with the disorder of the room  indicated that the girl had been murdered.  An autopsy disclosed that death was duo  to natural causes. The city chemist is examining the stomach or the girl for evidences or poison. Nora Fuller left home on  January 11th and met a man known as  John Bennett, in responce to an advertisement for a girl to take care of a baby. She  met the man at a restaurant, and thereafter all knowledge of her was lost. On  January Sth the house where the body was  found was rento a man giving the name of  found was rented to a man by the name of  Bennett and Hawkins tally, and it is  thought that the two names were aliases  of the same man.   Insuring Against Smallpox  LONDON, February 8.���With the increase in the number or cases of smallpox, London's population is flocking to  insurance offices in order to get insured  against the epidemic. In the history of  Lloyd's, no such plethora of insurance  was ever recorded as has arisen on account of the present scare. Some financial men have been insured for as much  as ��7000 against the risk of catching  smallpox, but the average policy is about  ��200.

Since,:then>;hO"weveri the  Might directory company, has; brought:  out its latest-issue.    This volume.contains some 94,335 names, the increase,  for the decade being 25;243'as icompared  with the publication 1892..   Aft;is well.,  known, however, all- names do not; go  into directories, so that when:the Might1  ���company-shows;*an=increase::ofr25";243.*;in;t  the. number of; persons of a given age-  within ten years it is reasonably certain that the census return of an increase of but 26,751 in the number of  persons of all ages is manifestly incorrect.   One method of estimating population  from  directory  returns,  and  one:  which is.conceded to be safe, is.:to multiply, the  names, in the directory- by,  2 3-4.   If this is followed in the case of  the latest issue of the Might:directory it.  will-give Toronto an indicated population of 259,420 of 51,459 more than the  number credited to the city, in the last  census returns.    It begins to look as if  there were good grounds for: the com-r  plaint that Ontario and the West were,  given considerably the worst of. it* by-the  federal census officers.    A few experli  ences of this nature will:not be unprofitable, however, if in the end it stimulates  the different- provinces into undertaking  the work of enumerating.   While it* is  not assumed that the federal authorities  would  accept the provincial  enumeration, still.it cannot be denied that the  knowledge that there was a good check  upon them would make the federal. enumerators , more careful in, their work.  In the case of:British.Columbia the pro-r  vincial government has entered upon a  crusade for better terms from the Dominion in the matter  of  its  per   capita  grant, while at the same time it has  taken no steps to ascertain whether or  not the province is  receiving its  due  under   the   existing   arrangement,   or.  whether the census returns are correct  upon which its per capita grant will be  based for the next ten years.   The taking of the census in a province like British Columbia is not   a   work   of   such  magnitude as should frighten its legislature, nor would its cost be out of proportion to its probable advantages.    If  a compact city like Toronto has  lost  50,000 from its population through careless    enumeration,    what    possibilities  there are for shrunken census returns  j   Both of the political parties in Ontario  ���and Manitoba are fighting shy of the  prohibition issue. The politicians are up  against the real thing, and prefer votes  to moral support.   With them prohibition is merely one of the, issues, and  they do not relish having, all their eggs  in one basket.   Even those' who personally favor prohibition are averse to giving the. issue undue, prominence in view  of the effect, such action may have upon  their candidature.   Past experience has  demonstrated that prohibionists develop  more strength in public-meetings than  at;the polls.   The. most striking evidence  of this: is furnished in: the province of  Manitoba.    It is not so very long ago  since a representative prohibition meeting in  Winnipeg,  almost unanimously  refused to even hear the explanation of.  a provincial cabinet minister as to why  the new provincial liquor law was not  enforced.    This   would   indicate  a  remarkably strong prohibition sentiment,  and it is conceded that prohibition sentiment . is as strong, if not stronger, to  Manitoba .than in' any other province in  1898-of giving-some indication of their  prairie, province had an opportunity in  1898 of giving some, indication- of the  strength  upon a  clean-cut prohibition  issue.   Was that the result?   In spite of  their, organization,  and  other  advantages,, they were only: able to, muster 18  votes;, in; favor of - the measure out of  every. 100��names upon the voters' list.  Politicians in office are not looking for  combinations    which    cannot   promise  more, than eighteen per cent of the vote;  nor will the politicians whom the fortunes of war find out of office, for the  ^time, risk their chances of getting back  "by. and ihard-and fast alliance with the  "; cold -water party;   The approaching ref-  . erendum upon ��� the prohibition issue in  ������Manitoba and Ontario willbe interesting  only as-an index to the state of public  feeling today, as compared with public  feeling upon  the  question  four  years  ;ago..    Some  of the. newspapers  in  British  Columbia are; laboring.to create the impression, that the possibility of a fuel  famine in the smelting districts of the  province, is a bogey man.conjured up  by the  management  of   the   Canadian  .-Pacific Railway Company, and that the  ������Crow's Nest Coal Company is in shape  [to meet all demands made upon it.   If  this contention is correct what explanation have these newspapers to offer to  jthe letter of D. Miller, second vice president of the   Great   Northern   railway,  ���Iwhich appears in another column?   Put  ���Jit-into plain language, the statement of  jjMr. Miller is that the fuel supply for the  i; British Columbia smelters is only main-  'tained by. the refusal of the Canadian  i Pacific Railway Company to supply cars  Jfor hauling ore to American points un-  jtil the requirements of the provincial  smelters are  met.    That  through this  action of the Canadian road  the coal  company, controlled by James J. Hill,  was obliged to cancel one order of 40  cars of coal per day, and that there is  no prespect of relief from the domination of-the Canadian Pacific until the  Great Northern line is. completed to the  coal; fields in May.    This statement of  the Great Northern's vice president was  not made off hand, but as he states, upon  an  investigation  of the  situation.    If  Mr. Miller knows what   he   is   writing  about, the situation of the British Columbia smelters   is   even   graver   than  many were inclined to think.   Between  now and May they can depend upon a  sufficient fuel supply by reason of the  policy of the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company, which withholds cars for export coal and coke until local demands  have been met.   But after May, the Canadian Pacific will be unable to protect  them, for. the   reason   that   the   Great  Northern railway will have its own connection  with   the coal   fields,   and   its  own cars, and the coal company will be  free to accept business which under ex-  A Prisoner in Eis Palace  The sultan of Turkey is literally a prisoner in his own palace, says the Chicago  Sunday Chronicle. He dares not venture  outside its walls for fear of assassination.  He is surrounded within its walls with  every safeguard that ingenuity can demise, yet even there he is never free from  the haunting fear that some of his satraps  may prove disloyal and mix some poisonous potion with his food or drive a dagger in his heart as he moves from one department to the other. At the present time,  however, he Is possessed of a new fear.  Custom and law compel him once a year  to make a pilgrimage to the shrine of Mohammed at Stamboul, there to kiss the  mantle of the prophet which is sacredly  preserved in a shrine erected for the purpose. At mid-Eamazan all rulers of Turkey  must perform this religious duty of forfeit  forever their standing as faithtul Mussul-  men. It is the one day in the year that  Abdul Hamid will move out of his palace  at Yildiz Kiosk, and. he does it only because Islam requires the visit to be made  during Kamazan, the Moslem Lent, a  month  corresponding with  our December.  During the first few years of his reign  tho present sultan showed himself from  time to time to his people. But since the  unfortunate ending of tlie Russo-Turkish  war, for which he felt himself guilty, and  since his flrst acts of violence and cruel  suppressions, which began about that time,  and. above all, since the mad attempt ot  A ii-Souav! ��� that audacious partisan of  Mourad, who, at the head of a handful of  men, forced the gates of Tcheragan palace, intending to drag forth a.dethroned  emperor, and was massacred with all his  companions���Abdul Hamid has gradually  kept away from the palace. Since then, isolated from the rest of the universe on the  heights of Yildiz, defended by thick walls,  barracks and body guards, the voluntary  captive, in spite of the precautions with  which he is surrounded, supports with (lif-  nculty  an   existence   filled  with  suspicion  Ll%o some 'idea can be had of the anguish  which seizes his soul when he is compelled  once a year to emerge from his retreat  and come in close contact with, the crowd  he fears and to pass through the city nej  abhors, in order to attend the ceremony of  Hirkai-Cherl���adoration of the cloak of the  prophet and other sacred relics.  i-lie grand religious festival is held at  Stamboul, at Top-Capou palace, which-.is  situated a considerable way from Yildiz.  Th<* distance incommensurable to tne unhappy sultan, cruelly haunted as he is by  a fixed idea of dangers to which tins accursed pilgrimage exposes him There, is  not the slightest doubt but that he. would  have done away with it long ago if he had  dared touch a time honored custom in the  ey��s of the people. But, thus compelled_by  tradition, he submits to the ordeal with a.  terror that he plainly shows long before  the 15th day of Ramazan, the day fixed  for the ceremony. ��.���'��������,  Almost in a state of panic owing to the  master's apprehensions, his minister of police, his courtier and spies endeavor to.  surpass each other in a show of their zeal,  and dream of nothing but conspiracies and  .^A* month in advance all the secret and  official police is on foot, and as the fatal  dav draws near the precautions are ;-e-  doiibled.

An order is issued  fo*- all gunmakcrs to close their.shops on  n*at day, and, it hardly seems credible, all  the pharmacists and druggists are ordered  to remove from their shops the Inflammable or explosive substances they, may  have in stock.  Because of tho explosive properties of  chlorate of potassium the importation of  this drug into Turkey was prohibited a few  years ago. Yet the druggists and pharmacists have gained permission to import  small quantities of the drug for medicinal  purposes. This quantity has been strictly  limited so that it could not be put to any  Illegal use by those handling it. But as it  is possible that the respective supplies kept  on hand by the 230 pharmacists and druggists of the capital might all be procured  bv a regicide and used in an attempt on  the sovereign on the morning of the ceirew  niony of Hlrkai-Cherl orders were issued  to the police to visit all these pharmaceutical establishments nnd seize the jars  containing the chlorate potassium. The  raids had to be made at the same time, so  recalcitrants could not hide their chlorate.  These operations took place, and thus has  once more been conjured the danger always  apprehended on the occasion of the pilgrimage of his majesty to Top-Capou.  The  day  of  the  ceremony,   early  in the  morning, the quarters of Bechiktach, Gal-  ata and Stamboul present unusual animation. Gangs of workmen work feverishly to  throw over the streets and bridges���which  are   always   repaved   for   the   occasion���a--  thick laver of sand*, engineers, accompanied by police, make a minute inspection of  the sewers, water and gas pipes and every  possible   place   that  could   be  mined.

Crouching   at   the   back   of   a   victoria-  he never rides in a closed carriage,  fearing not to be able to get out quick enough  in case of accident���the    raised    hood   of  which conceals a steel shield between the  outside   leather  and  the  cloth   lining,   the  sultan, with his two magnificent horses at  full gallop,, passes like the wind, surrounded  by  a living fortress of aides^Je-camp  and  courtiers,  who hide  him  almost completely from the gaze of the crowd. Usually  his   favorite  son,   prince   Burhaneddin-  *-<"ffendi, is seated on his left, and opposite  him   formerly   sat  marshal   Ghazi   Osman  Pasha,  the illustrious defender of Plevna,  who died last   year.    The   marshal    owed  this honor less to the affection or favor of  his master than to the popularity lie liim-  ���30lf enjoyed, as in the sultan's eyes he presented   a   certain   guaranty   of   protection  and security for his own person.  For the last few years even this rapid  gallop across the city has been considered  too dangerous, and on the advice of his  former minister of police, Na*;in Pasha,  Abdul Hamid fellows a new itinerary to  Top-Capou, which avoids crossing the  Karakcui bridge. He first goes in the carriage as far as the Dolma-Bagtche palace,  where ho embarks In his steam launch, the  Teclirilio, which takes him to the Polntc  du VIcux Serail.

As soon as he disembarks at the Pointe  du Serail the padisha gets into another1  carriage, which drives rapidly through the  Babi-Houmayoun . gate of tho Top-Capou  palace and draws'up in front of the. Babi-  Seadet (Gate of Happiness). Here the sovereign-alights, and followed by the high  dignitaries and functionaries of the state,  proceeds to. the sanctuary where.the sacred  relics are  carefully .guarded.  Then "the ceremony begins. In the vast  hall, in which float rare perfumes from-the-  burning censors, the sultan raises with  his own hands thf sumptious shaw.ls making the cloak of (he prophet. During this  time ohoirsters and reciters chant sacred  toxts. Then, at a sign from his majesty,  the grand vizier.- The Shiek ul Islam, and  other high functionaries, pass one by one  before the sovereign. Each receives from  "nis hand a pearl! upon which-is written a  verse from the .koran and which has just  teen sanctified by contact with the holy  'relic. '   "  After the ministers come the turn of the  Imperial princes, of <���hc.ve.lide sultana.and  the ladies of the harem, who arrived long  before his majostr".  At the close of the ceremony, during the  entire time of which the sultan has notj  ceased for a. moment watching the movements a.nd scrutinizing the faces of those  around him���for the fear of an attack does  not even leave him in the sanctuary���Abdul Hamid withdraws to the Bagdad pa-  villion.   Condition of the Church in America  A Boston esimate ot the prospects for  the new: year of American, churches,  represents the- Presbyterians, Method^  ists, Lutherans, Disciples pf Christ,  Quakers and United Brethren as highly  presperous and hopeful. Roman.j Cathi  olics, Jews, Unitarians and Universal-  ists are doing only fairly well. Congre-  gationalists and Episopalians are sufT  fering from conditions due to "a temporal beclouding of the evangelistic emphasis." In the one, intellectually has-  a-one to the extreme, and in the other,  individuality, and this Boston authority  is anxious about them.  "Temporal beclouding of the evangelistic emphasis" is a pretty common  disease nowadays, and whoever got up  so admirable a name for it has reason  to be proud of his worK. It is not exclusively a church disease, but is noticed in politcs, too���yes, even in literature. Take that new poem of Kipling's  for instance. It would be hard to express an impression -that it leaves on  some minds more accurately than by  saying it suggests a temporal beclouding of the evangelistic emphasis in Mr.  Kipling. In his case the imperialistic  emphasis seems to be crowding the other  out, which is a pity; for the evangelistic  emphasis which distinguished his "Recessional" got a more general and earnest response 'than any single note he  ever sounded.���Harper's Weekly.

CANADA'S GREAT HIGHWAY  Its Claims for Recognition  Interviewed this morning concerning  the contract recently closed by the imperial government, with the Canadian-  Pacific Railway Company, for the transportation of troops from England via  Canada and the transpacific steamers  to. China and vice versa, George McL.  Brown, executive agent of the railway  company, stated that recently the imperial authorities . had made several  trials of the route, Svith most satisfactory results.  There are many points in favor of. the  transportation of troops via the Canadian route, as compared with the Peninsular .&. Oriental' line. ' For instance,  troops "leaving England for the China station' can be landed in Hongkong well  within twenty-two: days,-, if iiot quicker,������  and-, the men do not suffer 'the" fatigue  incident to the long voyage under tropical skies,; as is the-case via the Suez  canal route';' Recently the C. P. R. has'-  speciaally equipped what are termed kitchen cars, for attachment to all trans-  " port trains. These cars greatly facilitate the smooth running of the commissariat department, and it is therefore  possible to provide better food than in  the ordinary coaches.  Should an emergency arise when it  will become desirable to rush troops  from England to Oriental stations, arrangements can readily be made  whereby the Atlantic ocean, will, be  bridged in five days, the transcontinental run from Halifax to Vancouver  made in four days, and the passage from  this city to Hohkoug made in thirteen  days. Such rapid execution can only  be accomplished by: the Canadian-route.  It is even thought possible that' troops  can be landed in India as quickly, if  not quicker, via Canada than by the-  Peninsular & Oriental route.-,  George McL. JBrown stated today a  fact which is not generally, known, as  it has never been published, and that  is that as long ago as 1S54 the imperial  authorities had considered the Canadian  route to China as the coming highway  for the rapid transportation of troops.  In .that year an oflicer of-the Royal Engineers published a phamphlet showing  the great possibilities of the route, and  on the front cover of the booklet there  appeared a map showing in detail the  line of railway from Montreal to the Pacific ocean, which would be necessary  to construct. Wonderful as it may seem  it is nevertheless,'a fact that the line  mapped out-in 1854 by that officer of the  Royal Engineers is that followed today  by the C. P. R. The route of 1854 ran  from Montreal to the location of North  Bay and along the northern, shore of  lake Superior, through northwestern  Ontario to Winnipeg and thence along  the. boundary line, between, Canada.and  the United States to the Rockies and  crossed the mountains at a point in the  vicinity of Kicking Horse pass. It is  another interesting fact that this old  routei followed the_.XrMgr^.yjver__tg,_...a_.

Brown.���  The Province.      ' ���  Alien Labor Deportations  According to the annual report of the  ���minister of labor, there were 71 complaints of violations of the alien labor  law between September, 1900, and June,  1901; Of these 64 cases were investigated. As a result of the investigations,  there were found to be no violation of  the act in 48 cases, and in 16 violatio'n  was disclosed. Fifty-two persons were  deported after investigation, and nineteen left voluntarily while investigation  was in progress.  So we see that our friend Ed Williams, inspector under the alien labor  act, has not been altogether idle. But  how.;does it; happen that.no action, has  yet been taken in the case of the miners imported by the Le Roi Mining Company to take the places of its striking  workmen? It is said that the company  brought 600 men from Missouri and put  Qxera to work���and they are still at  ���work notwithstanding the settlement of  -tlie disputes between the company and  its old employes. The strikers- have  yielded to the company's terms, but  most of them are still out, and the  aliens imported to displace them are  still at work.  There is no doubt that the importation of these men' from Missouri was a  violation of the alien labor law. How  is it that action has not been taken to  put the law in force against them and  the company? Can it be that inspector  Williams and minister Mulock arc  afraid to tackle these six hundred bold,  bad miners from "ole Mizzoura," who  carry guns and know how to use them?  ���Hamilton Herald.

He uttered all manner of  harsh things against the Republican  nominee, and felt that if he should ever  meet him it would be embarrassing.  After the campaign was over Bryan accepted an invitation to make an address  at Omaha. He was somewhat discon-  cerned when he saw the governor on  the platform, and dreaded meeting the  man whom he liad so savagely denounced.1 The chairman of the committee on  programme introduced the singers and  speakers to the governor, who, in turn,  presented them to the audience.

HIS FIRST AND LAST MODEL  The Great Northern's Version  The Canadian Pacific seems to be gobbling up enough of the Crow's Nest coal  output so that the Great Northern is hot  able to get enough to furnish its customers, who are anxious to purchase coal.  It is reported, however;' that the Great  Northern is getting a. supply for the use  of the road.' ,; ���*���"'.  " The Great Northern owns large deposits ,of the .Crow's Nest coal, but,, itv-is.  claimed, is deprived of the use of 'much'  of it, as the Canadian Pacific wiil)'no't  furnish cars by which to transport the  output of the American railway lines.  The Canadian Pacific also, it is understood, is unwilling to let cars be furnished for the purpose of filling outside  orders for this coal until its own orders  have been filled.  Some time-ago there was considerable  discussion in the newspaper world- as to  whicli road would capture the output  from this coal deposit. The Great.  Northern and the Canadian Pacific  skirmished for some time in getting this  matter settled, and finally the Great  Northern was conceded to have gained  control of a large field. This road began  the construction of a line to the helds.  The Canadian Pacific, however, is refusing to give.the other road the coal that  it wants until its own orders are"fiilled.  A letter from D. Miller, second vice  president of the Great Northern, to. a  local dealer thus explains the condi-  tior.= :  , "I. find upon investigation the situation to be that the Canadian Pacific  ,haveJncreased^theiE=,or.(l.er^fori_coaL,tp;  such an extent that the coal company is  not able to fill their outside orders, ahd  the Canadian Pacific will not furnish  cars for outside orders until their own  orders have been filled. Under, these  condition the coal company is powerless.  This company has had an order for 40  cars of coal, per day, but. same has been  shut off.  "I*do not think we can depend upon  any relief until we get our own lino  completed into the coal fields, which I  regret to say, however, will not be in  time for this winter's business, as we  do not expect to have the line completed  before May next."���Spokane Chronicle.  Shepard on Croker  The newspapers estimated, with practical genuis, the danger of scattering  fire and the advantage of a specific target, from which their range should never  be diverted, and which should have  about it a personal and familiar pic|*  turesqueness sure to hold popular interest. This they found in Richard  Croker, the leader-of Tammany hall. In  cartoons, and in the verile and un-  wearidly continuous work of reporters  and editorial writers alike, they held  him up as a heavy, brutal, dull, insolent, corrupt, tyrannical, reckless, unreasoning, absentee, political "boss."  What measure of justification there was  for this it is not within the scope of  this article to enquire. I may say, however, that where, in uur country, with  our secret ballot and free and constant  discussion, one man holds for half a  generation (not for five or six years of  a Tweed, or three or four years' popular  military fury of an Alcibiades) the effective support of great masses of citizens of an industrial and highly civilized community (including for shorter  or longer periods, men of all grades of  wealth, intelligence, and public spirit),  ^o that his will is, or rather seems to be,  "-.heirs, a philosophic observer will probably believe that there are at least some  errors or omission in the portraiture.  If not, then there are many problems,  puzzling indeed, in the history of Manhattan burough, and among them the  nomination of so justly distinguished a  character as Abram S. Hewitt by Tammany hall under the Croker leadership  in 1SS6.���Edward M. Shepard in February Atlantic.  Story of a Paris Studio  Twenty years ago a painter of Paris  achieved success and-fortune bis* painting pretty and effective pictures of the  nude. There was not a salon in which  he did not exhibit. The. picture-dealers  quarreled for his pictures. He turned  out scores of pictures'���and each of them  was a slim girl, who posed in the red of  the firelight or lolled dreaming among  the pillows, or rose radiant and white  from some brook. Now all this meant  that the artist, who had competent  technique, had found the model who fitted his genuis like a glove. He found'the  model who could collaborate with his  talent. And that you know, is the great  thing in painting. -The years went by;  taste changed; people tired of the pic-^  tures; critics told the artist he was "in  a rut". and pelted him with epigrams.  He-changed his style. He went in for-  landscape. He tried portraiture. People  had come to think of him as a man  with a knack of doing only one'kind ot  work, and of that they had tired. Little  by little he dropped out of sight. His  name did not appear in the catalogues,  At first every means of winning a new  success was tried desperately. Gradually  he became reconciled to faliure and was  glad when a mere living could be eked  out. Often this was in question. The  trouble was he could not find his way  again���and he was a man of only a bit  over forty.    ���;  , He had a studio, a gaunt, bare place,  over thev boulevard Edgar Qulnlet. A"  few riionths ago he was sitting there,  staring 'gloomingly at an empty canvas.  A; little ambition:. had flickered up in  him and he was trying to scheme out  a-picture "for the salon; yes, he would  try again;'he would force the doors' of  the salon���the' scenes of his- old triumphs; but with what? He looked at  his old sketches���slim and gracile nudities���studies made long ago; he felt  that he could- paint something in the  mdnner of his youth and-better than.-he  had evei-dorie.: But what subject? '  There was a knock at the door; a little woman came in; she was dressed .in.  shabby finery and, in fact, she was dirty.  Her breath came quick, for she had  climbed. four pairs of stairs, but she  tried to smile coquettishly.  '���' "Do you want a model?" asked the little old woman, holding the door ajar.  ��� The north light came full";upon her;  as the painter looked he could see every  wrinkle in her unwashed, painted face,  the bags under her burnt-out eyes, the  sag in her shoulders and all the tawdy  ribboned rags that shook as she .stood  there trembling on her rheumatic legs;  so grotesque the figure was that in  spite of himself he smiled.  :  The woman answered the smile, but  with such a pittiable attempt at gayety.  She hobbled forward with ghastly coquetry.  "I have not changed much/i she said  brightly. ��� "I can pose as well, as ever."  "You,'it- is: you, Yvonne!".the'painter  Si^fefewJyC w^^-^J^S^.j^Jh^m-jdeL  of his youth who had come up to him  from what black years of sin. and misery he could easily imagine. He put his  hand in his pocket to give her what  money he could spare; then he would  send her away. Yvonne understood.  She sank into a chair and began to sob  ���perhaps until then-she had not realized  how far she had fallen away from her  youth.  "I am not a beggar," she said. "I  came to pose."  The man was touched; memories of  pleasant, and prosperous times they had  spent together arose; he. recollected it  was on her he had bitilt up the fame of  his early days.  "Of course you shall pose," he said  kindly. "There, Yvonne, take your  place on the stand���there!"  She got up, trying to. smile; her draggled hat wobbled on'her gray hair. She  thrust off her coat, and. removed the  waist of her dress. '  "No, no," said the artist;*"that will  do, Yvonne."   *  As she stpod there, pathetic.and abject, he made * his- ��� sketch;' >-for 'many  days after that she Carrie and posed for  him���it was the only way he could help  her. It was,not only for the money; the  work was a tonic for .her. At last the  painting was finished; he put it away  and went, back to his picture for the  salon.   He could make nothing for it.  "We're both failures," he said at last  laughing, grimly. "Yvonne and.I. I'll  send in the study I made of her."  "The Old Model" was the .success of  the year. Its truth and pathos made  it a masterpiece. Today he is as famous as ever, Only now he paints old:  women���faded and pitiable old women  who are comments, at once grim and  sad, on the life of our day. 'And  Yvonne, who was his first model, is his  last.���The Cosmopolitan.

GIVING  WHISKEY AN AGE  New Discovery Made in London  Confident announcement has just been  made of a discovery that Is likely to revolutionize the spirits trade both in this country and America. The discovery is that of  a process that will, in a few months, lend  "age" to whisky. The result, as confidently  stated, will be the immediate release from  bond of thousands of gallons of whisky,  and a material cheapening of the product  of the still. In fact, it is expected here that  whisky, formerly sold at from 6 to 10 shillings, will be marked at as low as 2 shillings per bottle.  The discoverer of the method is professor  J. T. Hewitt, of the East London technical  college. He is a man of scholarly attainments, and is prominent in scientific  circles.

The opinion of  the meeting appeared to be about evenly  divided and it was decided to continue the  discussion of the platform at the meeting  next Sunday.  The R. M. It. hockey team, who did up  the C. P. R. boys on Thursday evening,  met their Waterloo on Saturday when they  ran up against the retail clerks. At the end  of the first half the rangers had matters  pretty much their own way, as the goals  were 4 to 2 against their opponents. After  the usual Interval play was resumed, when  the clerks finished up the rest of the game  with a siege of scoring, which left them  Victors by a score of 10 to 5.  .The Florence Crittenden society have arranged a series of lectures to be delivered  by the medical men of the city in aid of  the mission connected with the institution  bearing the above name.

MONTRF.AL, February 9.���Mrs. David  Sutherland, a young English woman, who  house, and, in  the  backing  of  DK  expert of internationaf "fame"  nBl- ��Coh..ilKr0uVit,2 toId the assembled scientists, that he had tested and examined several samples of whisky prepared under  professor Hewitt's formula, and found that  he had succeeded in eliminating the poisonous qualities from the new- whisky, and of  giving it the flavor of a product that is  kept tor years In barrels.  Of course, the professor did not publicly  disclose what his formula is composed of.  He simply declared he had achieved success by adding certain chemical substitutes  to the potsill." The result that a certain  chemical was formed in the still with the  noxious components in the new whisky  ^"d���,that; thus the liquor was practically  distilled over, becoming quite pure. The  poisons, in fact, were removed entirely  from the whisky.  ���Before beginning his lecture professor  Hewitt pointed out that the badness of new  whisky is due to the presence of certain  deleterious substances, known chemically  as aldehydes, which, in ordinary language,  were gradually grouped together with some  other substances ahd known as fusel oil.  Back in li>88, sir Thomas 'Lauder Brunton  had told the British spirit commission the  most dangerous of these' substances was  called furfurol. It was not, however, as  professor Hewitt explained, difficult to detect the presence of furfurol in whisky,  the process being the simple one of adding  a little-aniline and acetic acid to the spirit. If the furfurol were present the mixture  turned to a bright pink, and the pink became deeper in color, according to the amount of furfurol the spirit contained.  There was, of course, one way of eliminating these poisonous aldhydes, and that  was the long and costly process of storing  whisky in casks for several years, preferably ii*. casks that had contained sherry.  This process, however, had Its drawbacks,  A good deal of the alcohol was lost, and  the spirit consequently became weaker,  while there was also of necessity, a loss  of interest on the capital; laid out while  the whisky was maturing for several  years. ' \   .  Economic considerations also entered into the problem, for this maturing process  added materially to the cost of the whisky  by the time it reached the consumer.  The irresslstible conclusion,, therefore,  was that the cheaper a whisky is the more  poison it contains. Innumerable attempts  had been made to hasten the process of  "aging" the spirit,-but without consideration for the public health,, and always in  the Interest- of: the manufacturer. From  these two points.of view, professor Hewitt  contended, it was extremely-desirable.that  some effective means-should be discovered  of ridding this beverage of. its' poisonous  constituents quickly and in such a.fashion  that even the cheapest whisky might not  have tho results which the-consumption of  cheap or unmatured whisky .by *the;"poorer  class undoubtedly entailed..  The professor then gave .a few_more: particulars of his manner, of "aging" the  whisky. The most important point in his  disclosures, was that by his process but a  few months were all that was necessary to  convert the raw product of. the distillery  into a fine, mature and, most important  of all, a wholesome beverage.  After a brief discussion, in .which the  importance of the professor's statement  was commented upon, more-, especially in  relation of the amount of whisky always  in bond in Great Britain. Professor Hewitt  exhibited several samples'..that had been  tested under his formula. They were passed  around and "sampled" by the scientists  amid much amusing -comment. The specimens appeared to be beautifully clear and  pure to the eye, and without the high colors associated with most blends of whisky.  Dr. Hewitt has conducted his experiments, not only in the laboratory of; the  East London technical college, but, also,  on a large scale at one of the big Scotch  distilleries.
