Burge declared he never saw Thomas  P. Goudie until he met the latter in Hol-  laway jail. When he heard of the bank  of Liverpool frauds he, the witness, had  no idea that Marks and Mances were  connected with them.  Burge was found guilty. Sentence in  his case was postponed till the trial of  the other accused men is completed.  IHILIPPINO WAR HAS DISCLOSED  VERY FEW INSTANCES OF  RETALIATION  WASHINGTON, February 19.-���Rescinding to an inquiry from senator  pdge, the secretary of war sent to him  large number of papers bearing upon  e charge that cruelty is practised by  ;e American troops on the natives of  e Philippines. Senator Lodge pres-  lted the documents in the senate,  inong the documents forwarded are  l5ie records of thirteen investigations  such charges and the secretary says  iat every report or charge of this dis-  iption which has at any time been  rought to the notice of the war detriment, has been made the subject of  ���ompt investigation. He adds that in  ibstantially every case inquired into,  ie report has proved to be either unfunded or grossly exaggerated, lie  iso says the department is now en-  ���ged in conducting an investigation  ito the charge made in the senate last  eek that the "water cure" is the favor-  e torture of the American soldiers,  id especially of the Macabebec scouts,  i force the natives to give information,  id ���y--at a soldier who was with general  unsioii had stated that he had helped  ' administer "water cure" to 160 naves, all but 20 of whom had died. He  telosed a copy of a letter received from  -neral Funston, dated February 2nd,  102, in which he declares the statement to be an "atrocious lie without the  ightest foundation in fact," and also  letter from lieutenant Bafson, the  jmmander of the Macabebee scouts  ; the same effect.  Presenting the other side of the pic-  ire, secretary Root says: "The war on  ���ie part of the Filipinos has been convicted with barbarous cruelty, common among uncivilized races, and with  oneral disregard to tlie rules of civil-  ed warfare. They deliberately adopted  the policy of killing all natives, how-  ver peaceful, who were friendly to our  overnment, and in thousands of in-  tances these poor creatures dependent  tpon our soldiers for protection, have  een assassinated.  The Filipino troops have frequently upon our men from under the pro-  ection of* flags of truce, tortured them  'o death when taken prisoners, or bur-  ed them alive, both Americans and  riendly natives, and horribly mutilated  he bodies ���'of the American dead. That  ���Vldicrs fighting against such an enemy,  ���id , with their, own eyes witnessing  '"uchS deeds should occasionally be regardless of_their order and retaliate by  nijustiflable severity is not incredible.  3uch things happen in every war between two civilized nations.  That such occurrences have been sanctioned or permitted is not true. A constant and effective pressure of prohibi-  ion, precept and discipline has been  maintained against them. That there  has been any such practice is not true.  Tli^^aMs^lffive^beeh^few^and^far^be-  tween, scattered infrequently 'over a  great area of country, and along the  course of three years of conflict, through  thousands of engagements, and among  many thousands of troops. The war in  the Philippines has been conducted by  the American army with scrupulous regard for the rules of civilized warfare,  with genuine consideration for the pris-  ner and the non-combatant, with self-  restraint and with humanity never surpassed, if ever equalled, in any conflict,  worthy of praise and reflecting credit  upon Ihe American people.  BRITISH COLUMBIA REFINERY  Philippino's Want Independence  WASHINGTON, February 19.���Among  lather questions pertaining to tho l-'liil-  lirpines discussed by governor Taft to-  Riiay in his testimony before the senate  fccomniittee on the Philippines, was the  lattitud-*, of the different religious sets  Stoward one another. He said that gen-  len.l.y th<* relationship is friendly and  Ithat the e\ angelical churches were seek-  ping to secure a foothold in the islands,  all*' ieply to questions he said that, from  ��2r, to 50 persons had been deported from  ithe Philippines and that they were all  I3eut tc Guam by military authorities  [because they are considered irrescon-  Jcili'ables, whose presence was injurious.  IHe said that so far as the Philippine ad-  Ivocates of independence had expressed  (themselves all of them desired that the  (.���United States should continue its pro-  f'tectioE of the islands, in other words,  Ithey wanted independence with a Unit-  fed States protectorate.  Liverpool Bank Frauds  LONDON,  February   19.���On  the  re-  | sumption of the hearing of the charges  growing out of the bank of Liverpool  frauds today the defence was commenced   with    an   examination    of   "Dick"  ��� Burge, the pugilist, ono of the accused  men. He testified that he made ��30,000  from boxing during the last ten years;  that ho had known Lawrie Marks, the  missing bookmaker for IS months and  that he advanced him ��250 in October  last, on the understanding that they  were to divide the profits of Marks'  business.   Subsequently Marks informed  .the witness that James Mances, an Am-  eiieasi bookmaker, had a rich friend in j  Liverpool and suggested that he, Burge,  go there with Mances, and a lot of mon- ���  Corner Stcne Laid at Trail  The corner stone of the lead refinery  in connection with the Canadian Smelting works plant at Trail has been laid,  and active construction work is under  way. It had been the intention of the  smelter town to celebrate the formal inauguration! of the new industry with a  demonstration, incluling a band and  speeches by the civic authorities and  others, but this Was abandoned in favor  of a similar ceremony later in the year,  when the actual refining of lead is commenced. The Trail people regard the  enterprise with keen interest, 'and are  not a little proud of the fact that the  flrst lead refinery on Canadian soil is  to be erected in their city. The plant  will be located on the grounds of and  within a comparatively short distance  of the main plant. Refinery and smelter  will be connected by an electric tramway over which,the product of the furnaces will be conveyed for the final  treatment in the refinery.  It is difficult at this time to predict  with any measure of accuracy when the  refinery will bo in actual operation.  The, company originally intended to  start refining lead about May 15th, but  as some time has been lost in commencing work on the buildings and the  weather conditions at this season of the  year and for the next few. months are  somewhat unstable, the date of the  opening of the refinery must be postponed a couple of months to be within  the zone of safety. The necessary machinery is being manufactured for the  Canadian Smelting Works in the east,  and' much depends upon the speed with  which the plant is delivered by the  manufacturers. The plant now under  way. at Trail is intended principally as an  experiment. If it is demonstrated that  the refining of lead obtained from ores  mined within the Dominion can be done  profitably, the business is to be extended by tbe construction of plants at  other' points, probably Nelson, an East  Kootenay point, or the coast. All these  features depend in Jargs,measures..-on  the success met with in connection with  the plant on which construction work  has  just heen  started.  In the inauguration of the refining  industry at Trail which leads the boards  of trade at various points to recommend  the central organization of Associated  Boards to urge upon the federal government the necessity of placing such tariff restrictions upon the importation of  lead products as will afford the Canadian  lead producer a market for the refined  products of his ores. The contention  is that when the present lead tariff was  framed there were neither pig lead nor  refined lead products produce in Canada, and that since pig lead is now produced in much larger quantity than the  consumption of the entire Dominion,  and the refining of lead is about to be  introduced, the government should take  steps to afford the lead industry protection on the basis of the protection afforded similar industries. This question  will be gone into at the Kaslo convention on the 26th instant.���Rossland  MinferT"^"*1^^*  ���Brandon Blaze  BRANDON, February 10.���The Kelly  house, on Gth street, was damaged by  fire early this morning to the extent of  $600 or ?G00. ABout 4 a. m. the rear of  line building was discovered to be on  fire by some young men loturning home  from a party. The fire brigade was  soon on the scene. Had it. i<ot been for  the promptness of the brigade, the  whole house might have heen destroyed  as a keen westerly wind was blowing  the flames against the body of the building. As it was the kitchen and bedrooms above were badly burned and  damaged by water. The loss is covered  by insurance. Fire is supposed to have  originated in a burning chimney.  She Is She, Is Not  WASHINGTON, February 19.���The  state department's advices concerning  Miss Stone indicate that the Paris publication to the effect that she had been  set at liberty is to say the least, premature. It is gathered, however, from  rc-j-orts of the United States diplomatic  agents that the woman ia likely to be  released very soon and that the delay  is explained by the requirement of the  origands that they be given ample op-  pi nuiiity to ensure their own safety.  Arrest of a Jewel Thief  MONTREAL, February 19.���Charles  Savage, alias Will West, alias John  Scott, who is wanted in Portland, Oregon, for stealing a trunk containing  $10,000 in jewelry, was arrested here  this afternoon on an extradition warrant issued by the Pinkerton detective  agency.  Strange Disappearance  ST. JOHN, New Brunswick, February  19.���Miss Emma Sullivan 35 years old,  disappeared from her home in a blinding snow storm on Monday night and  has not been seen since.  Embezzled $178 000  HELENA, February 19.���A special to  thf* Independent from Great Falls,  Montana, says that n. H. Matteson,  who in January confessed to embezzling  $75,000  from  the First National Bank  while acting as cashier, is now alleged  to have taken $178,000, his operations  extending over three years. The statement was made at a meeting of the  bank directors yesterday and another  complaint was sworn out against Matteson, who was out on $5000 bail, whose  bail has_ been increased to $15,000.  Matteson was not found guilty until  late last night. He could not furnish  tho new bond and he will probably be  taken to Helena jail. The bank officers  became convinced that Matteson was  preparing to leave and that was the  principal reason for having him arrested on a second charge and having the  bail increased.  APPEAL DEFUSED  Change of Policy Predicted  LONDON, February 13.���Rumor is  again current that the chancellor of the  exchequer has been tempted into contemplating countervailing duties on  bounty-fed sugar. Officials, however,  keep the closest secrecy as to that, and  also as to the suggested preference lor  colonial grain and timber. The Westminster Gazette's cartoon' today depicts  Chamberlain and sir Michael Hicks-  Beach skating together. Hicks-Beach  soys: "Take care, Joe, isn't that a danger notice?" Chamberlain replies, "No,  its all right, it's labelled" protection."  The Birmingham post, commonly called Chamberlain's organ, repeats on  what is calls "high authority" that assertion that the Canadian government  has decided to lay a caDle across the  Atlantic to facilitate the transmission  of Anglo-Canadian news and promote  commerce; The cable companies say  that anything less than two cables  would be useless.  SMELTER DEAL COMPLETED  Will Increase Boundary's Output  GREENWOOD, February 19.���[Special  to The Tribune.]���It is announced here  today that the deal which has been  pending for several weeks between the  Montreal-Boston Copper Company, owning the Sunset and Crown Silver mines,  and. the Standard Pyritic Smelting Company, for the purchase of the latter's  smelter at Boundary Falls, has been  completed. The purchasers are already  arranging to add to the equipment of  the smelter with the intention of commencing smelting within seven or eight  weeks. It is stated that E. J. Wilson,'  the Standary, company ^ manager, will  not have charge under the new company's arrangements, but that Albert  J. Gbodwell, of Pueblo Colorado who  has been- strongly- recommended, is  likely to be manager. C. R. Craig, of  Seattle, arrived today to take the position of accountant.  A large new hoisting engine is now  running at the Sunset mine, where preparations are being pushed to maintain  a sufficiently large output to keep the  smelter going.

Manitoba's Prohibition Plebiscite  WINNIPEG, February 19.���Attorney  general Campbell announced in the  house this afternoon that the referendum vote would be taken on March 27th  next, and the prohibition act will come  into force on June 1st if any of the three  following conditions are fulfilled. If 45  per cent of those on the list vote in favor of the act; of if 60 per cent on the  voters' list vote, and 60 per cent thereof  vote in favor; or if the vote falls below  60 per oeht then a per centage between  60 per cent and 64 2-3 per cent will be  taken. No reference is made in the bill  to compensation for the liquor men.  The bill consists of twenty-five clauses,  and two schedules, but apart from the  provisions outlined above there is little  or nothing which effects the issue. The  majority of the clauses are merely formal in their nature and provide for  machinery and so forth.  Condemn Unconditional Surrender  LONDON, February 19.���At tho annual  meeting of tho general committee of the  National Liberal Federation, held at Leicester today, after considerable dissent  and an animated debate, a resolution wa.s  passed condemning the policy of insisting  on the unconditional surrender of tho  Boers in South Africa, affirming that a future contentment and security of South  Africa, could only be .secured by regular  peace on broad, generous lines, welcoming  the impetus lord Rosebery has given to  this policy and calling on all Liberal members of tlio bouse of commons to support  the Liberal loader, sir TTonry Campbull-  13aniicrmon, iu his advocacy of this policy.  PRESIDENT'S FINDING  IS  PUBLISHED  SAYS IN EFFECT THAT NEITHER  SAMPSON OB SCHLEY DID  VERYMUOH  WASHINGTON, February 19.���President Roosevelt's memorandum upon the  appeal of admiral Schley was made public today. It says in part; "I have received the appeal of admiral Schley, and  the answer thereto from the navy department. I have examined both with  the utmost care, as well as the preceding appeal to the secretary of the navy.  I have read through ail the testimony  taken before the court, and the statements of the counsel for admirals Sampson and Schley. I have examined all  the official reports' of every kind in reference to the Santiago naval campaign,  copies of the log books and signal books  and the testimony before the court of  claims, and have also personally had  before me the four surviving captains of  the five ships/aside from those of the  two admirals, which were actively engaged at Santiago.  "It appears that the court of inquiry  was unanimous in its findings of fact,  and unanimous in its expressions of  opinion on most of its findings of fact.  No appeal is made to me from the verdict of the court.on.these points where  it was unanimous. I have, however,  gone carefully over the evidence on  these points also, I am satisfied that on  the whole, the court did substantial justice. It should have specifically condemned the failure to enforce an efficient night blockade at Santiago, while  admiral Schley was in command. On  the other hand I feel that there is a  reasonable doubt whether he did not  move his spuadron with sufficient expedition from port to port. The court is  a unit in condemning admiral Schley's  action on the point where it seems to  me he most gravely erred, his "retrograde" movement," when he abandoned  the blockade, arid his ^disobedience of  orders and misstatements ot "fact in  relation thereto. It should be remembered, however, that the majority of  these actions which the court censures,  occurred Ave weeks or more before the  fight itself, and it certainly seems that  if admiral Schley's action were censurable he should not have been left as  second in command under admiral  Sampson.  "The point raised in the appeal is  between admiral Sampson and admiral  Schley, as to which was in command,  and as to which was entitled to the  credit, if. either of them was really entitled to any unusual and preeminent  credit by any special exhibition of genius, skill and courage. The court  could have considered both of these  questions, but as a matter of fact, it  unanimously excluded evidence offered  upon them, and, through its president,  announced its refusal to hear admiral  Sampson's side at all, and in view of  such exclusion, the majority of the  court acted with entire propriety in not  'expressing-any-opinion-on-these^points.^  The matter has, however, been raised  by the president of the court. Moreover,  it is the point upon which admiral Schley  in his appeal lays most stress, and which  he especially asks me to consider. I  have therefore carefully investigated  this matter also, and have informed myself upon it from the best sources of  information at my command."  The president~then quotes statements  given at various times by the commanders of the five ships, other than the flagships of the two admirals,, which were  actively engaged in the fight. Summing  up. he says: "The question of command  is in this case nominal and technical.  Admiral Sampson's ship, the New York,  was seen at the outset of the fight from  all other ships except the Brooklyn.  Four of these five captains have testified that they regarded him as present,  and in command. He signalled, "close  )n," to the fleet, as soon as the first  Spanish ship appeared, but his signal  was not seen by any American vessel.  He was actually under fire from the  forts, and himself fired a couple of shots,  at the close of the action with the tor-  pelo boats,, in addition to signalling the  Indiana, just at the close of the action.  But during the action not a single order  from him was received by any of the  ships that were actively engaged."  add Schley  "Admiral Schley at the outset of the  action hoisted the two signals of "clear  ship," and "close in" which was simply  carrying out the standing orlers of admiral Sampson as to what should be  done if the enemy's ships attempted to  break out of the harbor. Until after  the "close of the first portion of the  fight, at the mouth of the harbor, and  until after he had made his loop, and  the Spanish ships were fleeing to the  westward, not another Anmerican ship  notices a signal from him. When the  western pursuit had begun, the Oregon,  and the Oregon only, noticed that he  repeated one of his signals of command.  The captain of the Oregon then regarded  him as in command, but did not in any  shape or way execute any movement  or any action of any kind whatsoever  in accordance with any order from him.  "In short, the question as to which of  the two men, admiral Sampson or admiral Schley, was in command at the  time, is merely nominal in character.  Technically admiral Sampson commanded the fleet, and admiral Schley, as usual  the western division. The actual fact,  the important fact, is that after the battle was commenced not a helm was,  shifted, not a gun was fired, not a pound  of steam was put on in the engine room  aboard any ship, actively engaged, In  obedience to the order of either Sampson or Schley, save on their own two  vessels.  "It was a captain's fight Therefore  the credit to wnich each of the two is  entitled rest on matters apart from the  claim of nominal command over the  squadron; for so far as the actual fight  was concerned, neither one of the other  in fact exercised any command. Sampson was hardly more than technically  in the fight. His real claim for credit  rests upon his work as commander-in-  chief; upon the excellence of the blockade; upon the preparedness of the squadron; upon the arrangement of the ship's  head-on-on a semf-ctrcle around the  harbor; and the standing orders in accordance with which they instantly  moved to the attack of the Spaniards  when the latter appeared. For all these  things the credit is his.  "Admiral Schley is rightly entiled, as  is captain Cook, to the credit of what  the Brooklyn did in the fighting. On!  the whole she did well; but I agree  with the unanimous finding of the three  admirals who composed the court of inquiry as to the "loop." It seriously  marred the Brooklyn's otherwise ex->  cellent record, being in fact, the one  grave mistake by any American ship  that day.  "Under such cicumstances, it seems  to me that the recommendations of  president McKinley were eminently proper, and, that so far as admirals Sampson and Schley are concerned, it would  have been unjust for him to have made  other recommendations. Personally- i  feel that in view of captain Clark's long  voyage in the Oregon, and the condition  in which he brought her to the scene  of service, as well as the way in which  he actually managed her before and  during the fight, it would have been well  to have given him the same advance-.-  ment that was given Wainwright. But  waiving this, it is evident that Wainwright was entitled to receive more than  any of the other commanders, and that  it was just to admiral Sampson that he  should receive a greater advancement  in numbers than admiral Schley. There  was nothing done in the battle that  warranted any unusual reward for  either. In short, as regards admirals  Sampson and Schley, I find that president McKinley did substantial justice,  and there would be no warrant for reversing his action.  "Both admiral Sampson and admiral  Schley are now on the retired list. In  concluding.this report,the members of  the court of inquiry, admirals Dewey,  Benham and Ramsay, unite in stating  that they recommend that no further,1  action be taken in the matter. With  this recommendation I most heartily  concur. There is no excuse whatever,  from either side, for any further agitation of this unhappy controversy. To  keep it alive would merely do damage to  the navy and to the country."  THE BOY WAS BURIED ALIVE  Victim of Indian Superstition  SEATTLE, February 19.���The steamer Dirigo, which arrived from Alaska  yesterday, brings news that the Chil-  koot Indians near Haine's mission, Alaska, on February 5th, buried alive one  of their tribe, a boy 15 years of age. The  boy had been converted to Christianity  Jjy^Miic^A. Sellon, a Methodist_mission-  ary, and in a burst of religious zeal de-  nounced the mummeries of the tribal  Icht, or medicine man. This act aroused  the anger of the superstitious old men  of the tribe. Recently 14 native residents of the village of Kluckwan died  of consumption and Icht spread the belief that the boy was in league with the  evil one through his knowledge of the  white man's religion and caused the  deaths. The disappearance of the boy  from school aroused the suspicions of  Mr. Sellon and he started in search of  him. At the outskirts of the village he  found tracks leadiig to a fresh grave.  Digging down he found the boy still  alive, his bloodshot eyes rolling in in-  spnc* agony, his hair torn off in handfuls  from his head. His finger nails were  tern off in his efforts to escape from his  horrible prison. The boy was lifted  from the grave and carried to the village, where he lived for several hours,  howling and crying out like a maniac,  finally dying from the effect of suffering  and the fright. The Icht who is responsible for the crime is Skun Doo. an old  offender, who spent a term in San Quen-  tin penitentiary for causing an old woman to be starved to death in 1894.  Supply Americans With Arsenic  TORONTO, February 19.���Ontario is  able, so far as raw material is concerned, to produce arsenic enough for all  America, and this will be done if the  bounty on the production is granted,  says .Joseph James, of Hastings, who is  acting in the interest of foreign capitalists. A bounty of $12,000 is asked from  the provincial and $24,000 from the  Dominion government. Should these be  granted a plant capable of turning out  2,282,400 tons of arsenic annually will  be put into operation  immediately.  Blacksmith Shop Burned  FREDERiCTON, New Brunswick,  February 1!).���Emery Sewell's blacksmiths shop at Upper Madgeville, was  destroyed by fire early yesterday morning, tlie loss being $5000.   No insurance.  Interesting Liquor Case  WASHINGTON, February 19.���The  treasury department has decided a case  involving the light of a citizen of the  United States to import whiskey from  Canada in certain sized packages. Canada prohibits the importation of whiskey in casks of a less capacity than. 100  gallons. The tariff act of the United  States, approved July 24th, 1897, provides that any spirituous liquors imported into the United States in any  'packages, or from any country under  whose laws similar sized packages are  denied into the country, shall be forfeited to the United States. This means  that Americans who desire to import  Canadian whiskey for their own consumption must bring it in in hundred  gallon casks.  WANTS HAHMHY  MEETING  OF  COMMITTEE  OF THIRTY-SIX  A COURT MARTIAL ORDERED  For Surprised British Officials  NEW* YORK, February 19.���A special  cable to a morning paper from London  says: "General Kitchener's details'of the  operations In South Africa during January  are published today ln the official gazette.  Referring to the Tweefonteln mishap he  says a court of Inquiry was held on the  affair, which In my opinion was not satisfactorily covered by the explanations  put forward. Considering the warnings this  force received directing them to be on the  alert, and the preparations made by them  to meet a night attack,' seem, as far as1 I  can judge, at present, to have been most  defective."  Incidentally general Kitchener mentions  that major Colenbrander met a party of  natives under chief Llnchwe, 2000 strong,  marching In an endeavor to recapture the  stock which had been stolep. the previous  month by commandant Kemp. As there  were Boer women and children In the  neighborhood, deplorable results might  have occurred. Major Colenbrander ordered  the natives to return, and they obeyed,  much to the relief of the Boer families  scattered in the district.  To People Palestine  LONDON, February 19.���Leaders of the  Zionist movement anticipate Important developments as a result of the visit of Dr.  Theodore Herzel of Vienna, founder of the  Zionist movement and president ��� of the  Zionist congress, recently held at Basle,  Switzerland. Dr. Herzel was summoned to  the Yildiz palace by a special telegram  from the sultan, and the Zionist leader Is  now negotiating with the sultan for the acquisition of possessions In Palestine, permitting the unimpeded Immigration and  settlement of Jews there. Dr. Herzel's demands include a charter granting some  simple form of home rule and opening the  sultan's crown lands tot:Jewish colonization. A representative of the Jewish colonization association, which was endowed  by the late baron Hirsch with a large sum  of money, is Constantinople, which  Is taken to signify that the trustees of the  baron Hlrsch funds are about to concentrate their resources on Palestine.  It Pays to be Courteous  CHICAGO, February 19.���Lleweln Mason,  a conductor on the Chicago & Alton railway, has just received assurance that  courtesy to the travelling public sometimes  has Its reward. When the will of W. A.  Taylor, a Bloomlngton millionaire, was probated yesterday it was found to contain  the following clause: "To Lewellyn Masqn  I bequeath the sum of $1000 as a recognition of the courteous treatment accorded  me while traveling on the Alton railroad."  Conductor Mason is over sixty years old  and has been a conductor on the Alton road  for nearly thirty years. He now runs a  suburban train between Chicago and Joliet.  Millionaire Tyler was very curious when  traveling and was wont to ask many questions. In 1898 he happened to take a train  on^which^young-Mason-was-theiConductor,,  and Mason spent all of his spare time on  the run to Chicago in talking to him.

Tho arrangement  must be ratified before May 1st  SENATOR   HANNA   SATS   MUCH  GOOD   WILL   RESULT   FROM  NEW  ORGANIZATION  NEW YORK, February 19.���The flrst  meeting of the legislative committee of  36, appointed through thefhational civic  federation to arbitrate labor troubles,  was held today with senator Hanna in  the chair. The object of the- gathering ;was to receive a report on a working plan by means of which strikes,  lockouts and other forms of disputes  between capitalists and the laboring  class may be settled. This plan was  presented by a sub-committee in form  of a set of by-laws, which provide that  the chairman of the legislative committee of the federation shall appoint  a committee on conciliation to consist  of nine members, three of whom shall  be selected from each group of the legislative committee representing capital,  labor and the general public, whose  duty it shall be, at the request of the  chairman, on information of the strike  or lockout of more than ordinary magnitude, to use its good,offices in restoring harmonious relations, reporting its  action to the legislative committee.  Should the efforts of the conciliation  committee prove ineffective and should  both parties in the dispute desire.the  service of the legislative committee, it  is directed that they may be invited to  select two employers and two wage  earners from the legislative committee  to serve as-an'arbitration board. Should  the four And it necessary to appoint an  umpire to finally decide the dispute, they  may select a fifth member from the division representing the public. Should a  controversy seem of- such magnitude as  to justify such action, the officers of the  legislative committee shall be authorized to* cah a meeting of the entire legislative committee, to consider the situation and take such action1 as may in  its judgment be required. The legislative commitee. may appoint an auxiliary, committee to deal with local.. distur-_ ;  ���bances, the rules governing the same to"  be in harmony with the general purpose  of the industrial department.  At the close of the meeting senator  Hanna said: "The meeting was very  satisfactory. Thirty out of thirty-six  members were present and the spirit  displayed was splendid. We feel delighted with the results of our efforts  toward better harmony between capital*  and labor."  Archbishop Ireland and bishop Potter  were among those present.

What disposition is to be made of the  Nelson public library?    This was. the  chief question discussed at the annual  meeting of the association last evening.  That the library is appreciated by the  citizens was shown by the reports submitted,   but   it   developed   during  the  course of the meeting that several of  those who have  been  instrumental  in  keeping the  institution  going for  the  past three years"would like to shift their  responsibility.    Suggestions under this  head were numerous.   One was that the  city council should be induced to take  the library over.   Another was that an  effort should be made to. tap Mr. Carnegie.    Each of these suggestion were  discarded,   however.     With   respect   to  Ihe jSrst there was little hope held out;  that  the members of the  city  council  could be induced to go into the library  business, 'that is  for the present.    As  to the easier method, that of appealing  to Mr. Carnegie, it found few supporters,  the general  opinion  seing that  if the  local   library  could  not  be maintained,  without  Hying distress  signals to  the  steel king, that it had better be shut up.  There was one other suggestion, and it  will probably be acted upon.    There is  an effort being made by the membership  of the several  churches in tlie city to  organize   an  undenominal   Y. M. C. A.,  and it was suggested that such association when completed should take over  the library and realing rooms.   Obtaining these as a going and well-patronized  concern the Y. M. C. A. would only have  to obtain   a   proper   gymnasium,   with  baths attached.   The amalgamated��� concern,   thus  complete,   would   prove   an  undoubted success.   This step is a practical one and would relieve the directors  of the library of their onerous task.  of British Columbia, who are protesting  against Mr. Hill's methods, would do  any different if they occupied the same  commanding position, cut. it is generally, recognized in British Columbia,  though it apparently has not dawned  upon some of the people of eastern Canada, that the prosperity of this province  as,a whole'should be of greater concern  to the government at Ottawa than the  successful operation of Mr. Hill's railway, systems in the United States. If  the men who constitute the government  at Ottawa will give the smelters of  southern British Columbia the advantages of competition in the purchase of  their fuel supplies, the people of British  Columbia have assurances of cheaper  coke. They desire this *'cheaper coke  because none know better than they  how important reductions in the cost of  smelting are in the development of their  great mineral resources. 'At the present  time the only available supply of coke  for smelting purposes is. controlled by  an individual whose business interests  prompt him to promote smelting south  of the international boundary rather  than in British Columbia. It is in the  power of the, federal government to  bring into being, upon terms of its own,  a coal company whose interests will lie  in the direction of encouraging home  smelting. The question is simply, under -which condition will the mining and  smelting industries of British Columbia  profit most?  MORLEY &LAIM  B00KSELLEES AND STATI0NEBS  BAKEK 8TREK,T. NELSON. B. V.  Showrooms Mason & Rifoa Pianos.  The eastern papers appear to know  all about the Crow's Nest Coal Company  and its management. It is now denied  in the east that James J. Hill has a controlling interest in tne company.  Whether a majority of the stock of the  Crow's Nest Coal Company stands in  the name .of James J. Hill at present  does not materially affect the people of  southern British Columbia. What they  complain of is that James J. Hill controls the policy of the Crow's Nest Coal  Company, and that owing to the fact  that Mr. Hill's interests are all south of  the international boundary line, he as  a good business man makes his greater  interests his chief consideration, and  that through the operation of this very  excellent business rule, our mining and  smelting industries are discriminated  against in favor of mining and smelting  interests south of the international  boundary line. Nor is it likely that any  of the mine-owners or smelter managers  British Columbia suffers from, the indifference of the people of the other  provinces, and no portion of it more  than the mining districts.    Aside from  the; knowledge that its shore line constitutes the terminus of; the Canadian  Pacific railway, and that some people of  Toronto  and  Montreal  lost money in  Rossland wild-catting and stock gambling, very little is kno-arn in the east  of British Columbia or its possibilities..  This condition is peculiarly unfortunate  at a time  when' British   Columbia requires   the   co-operation   of   the  other  provinces in the framing of legislation  "calculated-to-promote^its-deyelopihehtr  If, in its effort to secure the cheapest  possible coke for its smelting industry,  British Columbia could count upon even  the interest of the people of the east,  the issue would not remain very long in  doubt.    A condition which requires a  province, with  but six representatives  in a house of over two hundred, to combat unaided powerful  corporate interests for every concession it receives, is  not conductive to rapid development. It  is this condition which threatens more  seriously than enything else the successful, issue of the present demand for consideration for British Columbia's mining and smelting industries.  NEW LEADER FOR TAMMANY  Lotus Nixon's Previous Record  When   New   York   woke   up   on   the  morning of   January   23rd   and   found  that, as the Sun put it, Richard Croker  had   veritably   leparted    Wantageward;  it rubbed its eyes   and   turned   a   concentrated gaze upon its untried successor in the seat of the mighty, and Lewis  Nixon found himself famous or at least  the most talked of man in New York.  As   is_ the   wont  of   our   metropolitan  newspapers  with  their complexities  of  political complexion, there was a medley of comment, when the news emanated from Tammany hall that Croker had  resigned, and opinions expressed about  the clubs and   at   the   city   hall   were  equally diverse.  Many of those whose  utterances are usually   listened   to   attentively, openly scouted the idea that  Croker had gone for good.   They pointed to his past record, to his previous  prima donna, positively-the-last-appear-  tince methods in 1894, and to the fact  that he promptly re-apeared when the  star of   political   hope   again   beamed  brightly  over  Tammany.    The  Herald  prefaced its account of the resignation  with the couplet:  When  the devil was sick, the devil  a  monk would be.  When the devil   got well,  the  devil   a  monk was he.  And even those papers which nominally accepted the statements of Mr. Cro  ker in good faith, hedged with unobstu-  sive, but damnatory, "ifs" and "perhaps." Mr. Nixon, however, seems to  have no doubt but what his is sole helm-  man: of the Tammany bark. He briskly  took possession of the well-worn desk  at Tammany hall which John Kelly used  and from which Mr. Nixon's immediate  predecessor has laid down the law to  the motley crowd of visitors for many  years, and in his salutatory speech he  said: "I will not" take an executive position and be a mere figure-head."  There is something of a contrast between the careers of Richard Croker and  Lewis Nixon. The former is now fifty-  eight years old; he was born in Ireland,  his father being a blacksmith, and afterward an employee of the Harlem car  stables; his education was derived solely  from the public schools, and in the  streets and political headquarters of  New York city. -He has been a factor to  be reckoned with the Tammany hall for  twenty years. On the other hand, Lewis  Nixon is but forty years of age, and in  his veins runs some of the bluest blood  of old Virginia (a fact that has already  been thrown up to him by opposers in  Tammany less gently bred , his father  being a colonel in the state militia, and  his 'mother belonging to a well-known  old family. Mr. Nixon graduated from  Annapolis in ISS^at the head of his  class, thence lie went to England, where  he pursued a special course in ordnance,  architecture, and engineering in tne  Royal Naval college at Greenwich. On  his 'return to this country he assisted  in building some of the first of our modern'vessels of war, the Chicago, Boston-  and! Atlanta, the later designed and  made plans for the peerless Oregon. In  his ! ship-yard at Elizabethtown, New  Jersey, the new Tammany leader employs over eight hundred men. His  first active connection with politics  dates back only about four years.  Mr. Nixon's profession, by the wa>,  is concerned in a rather charming bit  of romance. Some twenty years ago, at  an Annapolis ball, he met and danced  with a demure and pretty Florida girl  named Sallie Wood. In the course of  the; conversation she told him that she  thought, the government ought to name  oj'.e; oFTts" vessels, for her native state  of Florida. With the masculine generosity in promises he assured her that  her' lightest word was law, and that it  should be so "even if he had to build  the-ship himself." His promise was fulfilled when the monitor Florida was  ���launched a few years ago from the  Nixon ship-yards, and christened by  Mrs. Lewis Nixon (nee Wood).  There is no question but 'hat the honorable Lewis Nixon had a hard row to  hoe. Defeat has made many a gap in  the! once solid Tammany ranks, and'  there is hardly a district without some  unplastered sore which demands skillful i attention from headquarters. The  announced intention is that every district in town shall be visited, and a  vigorous and defined policy of reconciliation will be pursued. ^_  ^^t=th1^'Pres01ub"banWet^at_D'elmbn'="  ico's the other night, Mr. Nixon responded to "Abe" Grueher's facetious  auestion: "Does the man who holds  the, tiller own the cargo?" with, "The  man who holds' the tiller and steers a  straight course delivers his crew and  cargo where he wants them," which  surely has a brave and determined sort  of a ring. By the way, sir Thomas  Lipton's regrets were, in my opinion,  cleverer than anything anybody said  at the banquet. His cablegram was  short and to the point: "I am very  sorry am unable to join in shifting ballast with you tonit-ht. Expect you will  require all time allowance on home run.  Wish you successful function, jolhest of  evenings. Will toast your health in  the best cup I can lift on this side."  Though the speech from the head c.  Tammany was given by far the closes-,  attention of any Press club,  it was by no means the cleverco', a*id,  in fact, Mr. Nixon is not regard ii as-  that sort of a man. Everybody adnvl'i  that he is bright, straighlfqrwnrj, and  a man of honor, but there are few who  seem to have implicit confidence in his  ability to put Tammany on its feet, and  bring victory to the organization. Apropos of the pi'oposal to "reform" Tammany a pert question is going the  rounds: "Can the ��� tiger change his  stripes as easily as his head?"  "We want to find out just where we  are at," said a member of the Tammany  hall general committee one evening last  week as he walked up the steps of the  big red building in East Fourteenth  street. There was a meeting of the general committee of Tammany, in which  the last election and its disastrous results were discussed and plans were  formed for an effort co- gain a victory  at the next election.  Tho Tammanyites all said that they  recovered from "that dazed feeling"  caused by tho crushing defeat last fall  of the wigwam of the fusionists, and  announced themselves ready to make  another fight when tho time comes.  Besides the regular members of the  general committee who were present,  there were in attendance many men who  are prominent in the inner circles of  Tammany.  Congressman William Sulzer was the  chief  sppaker  of  the  evening,  and  he  gave an exhaustive history of the organization.  The speaker prefaced his address with  ' *���*  Fred Irvine & Go.  to  Just received a large assortment of ladies' and childrens' night dresses, enemies and drawers, corset covers white  skirts, infant and children's dresses.

Continuing, Mr. Sulzer told of the origin, evolution and present development  of Tammany hall, beginning with the  genesis of the name and ending with  comment on existing conditions in the  orgaizatioh.  Referring to the purpose for which  Tammany hall was founded, the speaker  said: "The object was not to afford  relief to indigent and distressed members of the association."  The organization was incorporate! in  1805, and its inception was apotheozised  by the orator in the.following words:  "Tammany drew its first inspiration  from the revolution. It stands today,  and has ever stood, for all that great  struggle accomplished. ' Its mission is  human liberty, its cause the right' of  man."  Mr. Sulzer told his audience that two  weeks after George Washington took  the oath of office as the first president  of the United States Tammany hall was  brought into being. He spoke of the  illustrious membership of the succeeding years and! referred" to the great national characters that had been its  f'lfnds.  : "Andrew Jackson���the hero of New  Orleans���loved Tammany," said Mr. Sul-  zei. He sat by its council fires and  diew from its teachings the inspiration  to defy the monopoly of the United  States bank, to destroy nullification and  ��� to r leserve the union and the constitution."  The speaker then dwelt upon the  Tammany infuence in national politics,  and referred to its loyalty to the  union during the rebellion period. It  had always stood, he,said for the rights  KOOTENAY....  COFFEE CO.  ************************  Coffee Roasters  DBaleps In Tea and Coffee  ***���******���***************.

A Story Prom the Slums  Chl ��� chi ��� tewl ��� wi ��� wl ��� wit ��� chi  nlii��� chi voices innumerable mingled In a  bewildering medley ot sound, and two violet eyes opened upon the flood of golden  sunshine. Slowly they wandered from the  pink roses on the wall to the curtains at  the windows and down to the greon and  brown carpet on the iloor.  Gee whiz! I've struck it rich, I have,"  jilpctl a weak, childish voice.  The lifting of tho latch changed the expression of wondering admiration to one of  sharp questioning. Miss Hope Ray opened  the door a little way and looked In, pushed  it back further and stepped" into the apartment.  "Good morning, little boy," she said in a  hearty, breezy tone, "1 guess you are most  starved by this time, aren't you?"  "Yes, I be," repiied the dinumitive voice  whoso head appeared above the white  co u n terpane.  "Did the birds wake you  up?"'  "Uunno."  "You were so tired and sleepy last night  that 1 didn't ask you your name. Won't  you tell me now?"  "Pole."  "What else?"  ��� J'ete. *ju-;'  Pete."  '���What's your father's name?"  "Ole Pete."  'Ms that all?"  "Dunno," Pete paused for a moment,  then burst out in a half defiant tone,  ������When the cops was round thej* said they  wa.s after William Peters, and Mike Regan  said that was my old man."  "Where is your father now?"  "I'junno. Guess he's layin' low." The dark  violet eyes glanced at Miss Ray furtively  and then turned quickly away. ���"  "Where is your mother?"  "Hain't got none;.never had none."  Miss Ray looked down on the thin, wizened face with its hard mouth and the  close cropped head and the fanlike ears  prominently flanking the bony cheeks.  There was nothing suggestive of the winning innocence of childhood.- She turned  away, reluctant to admit her dislike, but  repelled in spite of herself.  Every center of population, however  small, has its contingent for whom the  temptations of life are too strong or the  difficulties of existence are too groat for  its members to keep pace with its virtuous  and thrifty fellow citizens. Farmingdale  was no exception. It had its slums where  the stragglers in the march of civilization  congregated. In the hovels down by the  river where poverty and shiftlessness  flaunted their presence by unmistakable  signs Miss Ray was a familiar presence.  Sirs had often reached a helping hand to  these faltering brothers and sisters and  had learned to recognize the marks which  Bin and suffering make on the human faces,  but in all her experience she had not come  in contact with anything so unlovely as  this little creature she had taken under her  roof.  AVhat was the meaning of that Ishmael  look? Was it an accusation? The slain Abel  hajmUng_J^e^jwiJ^^^  ~5v.-arfe~d and embittered childhood? Was  it a protest against social conditions that  made these weak ones bear the brunt of  the mistakes of their fellow-beings? Could  she endure this continual reminder of the  misery she could not relieve. Her cousin  John's letter had not prepared her for this.  She went down stairs and took it out again.  Perhaps sho had not read between the lines  and the chief thing in his letters was what  ho sometimes left unsaid.  New York, May 3rd.  My .Oear Rny of Hope:! have another bit  of driftwood from the storm-tossed sea of  humanity down here that I want you to  take Into the sunshine of your presence  nnd warm Into lite. The story in brief Is  this: One of our modern juggernauts,  otherwise termed an automobile, ran over  a little street Arab. The child wns brought  up to the hospital more dead than alive..  The owner of the automobile, having n  heart as well as money, was dreadfully cul  up about It and insisted that the little fellow havo tho best of care regardless of  expense. We've done all we can for him.  What he needs now is country air and  watching. You've helped me out before.  Here is a case that will afford ample opportunity for the exercise of your benevolence. Let me know if I may send him ur  next week.  Yours  fraternally,  JOHN  BURTON.  "There," she said, half an hour later, ar  she tucked a bed quilt under the arm of the  Boston rocker and propped Pete back sc  that he was just in line with the window,  "vou're as snug as a bug in a rug. I am'  going to leave you to watch my wonderful  city." ',  Pete looked out on the stretch of meadow  ���Just bright with the first green of the yea*  und at the mauve tinted hills beyond.  "Humph' Ain't no city here. Guess the  old girl is I>1 lifting."  "Old girl"���that has just described Hope  Ray The tiny wrinkles around the brigh*  brown eves and the grey that showed here  and there in the brown hair bore testimon*.  io the passage of years, but tho dimple:  that came and wont and the curves aroune*  her winsome mouth and the rounded omi  belonged to the springiime of life.  Pete leaned back among the pillows. T:  a dim way he recognized the beauty before  him. The freshness, the bright coloring  the breezy expanse, stirred his amused fac  ulties, but to his untrained eyes these ha<:  no meaning. He- did not know that, behlnr'  Iho line of alders a little brook slippcc  along its gurgling way over the stones nor  that  tiio patches of  yellow  in  the  grass  SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT:  Interest allowed  on deposits.

HOLT,  Manager Nelson Branch.  were dandelions jubilant in the sunshine,  nor that the wreaths of snow caught  among the gren branches of-the trees were  the blossoms of (lie dogwood. He coulel not  te.-il that the black specks crawling back  and forth across the hillside was a man  plowing, nor that the sharp caw caw that  came over the wide sweep was the crow  that was cutting its dark course above the  lields.  Soon the wideness, the roominess tired  him and he shut his eyes.  Ciii ��� chl ��� chi ��� tewl ��� wi ��� wi ���wit  chi ��� chi ��� chi vibrated through the room.  The sharp stlccato notes were close beside  him. He looked out again and his glance  fell on the big pine by the side of the  house. So close was it that it had escaped  his notice. He did not see the wonderful  beauty and symmetry of the old tree ris-'  ing in gradual lines to a towering height,  a perfect development from years of un-  trummeled growth, nor the grace of its  e:ono shaped upper branches outline against  the blue sky as they bent beneficiently  earthward. It was the numberless brownish  gray bodies darting in and out between the  level branches that caught bis eye. Those  the city bred boy recognized. They were  the same little creatures he had seen flut-  tring down from the roofs and hopping  about the pavements; the same, yet in  their new environment they seemed different. Tha freedom of their movement,. the  noisy joyousness, their bustling activity  impressed him as something new. He fol-  leiwed the .wavering flight of a little figure  until it was lost in the distance, then another nnd another. Ho'watched one returning-with a long straw in its bill. Tie leaned  forward and along the branches ho could  make out many heaps of dried grass.  "I thought you'd Ond it," said Miss Ray.  close to his elbow. "That's the city. See  the houses the birds "are building?"  "lie. them bird's houses?" Pete did not  usually deign to ask a question.  "Why, yes, those are bird's nests. Don't  you know what bird's nests are, Pete?" ���  "Nop; never saw nun."  A boy who knew nothing of that miracle  of the spring, who had never 'felt the fascination of the mystery hidden in the shell,  was incomprehensible to the ordinary  country woman. She knelt down beside the  window and pointed out the nests that had  been built on the broad branches. She told  him of tho growing store of eggs, the  brooding mother and*'the.awakening of life  within the shells, the tapping of the little  prisoners on the walls of their prisons until they had freed themselves and came out,  liny untledgcd things, into new existence.  Pete listened, casting searching glances  out of the corners of his eyes at Miss Ray.  Incredulity slowly gave place to confidence.  '"Wttel," he said, as she had finished, "I  guess she hain't given me no bluff."  ��� The old pine was dear to the heart of  Miss Ray. Away back in the days when she  had built her playhouse beneath it and furnished her pantry with bits of broken china  which she had begun to study its varying  moods. Into her loving knowledge of it and  its inhabitants she slowly led Pete during  his convalescence. At first she. called his  attention to the most obvious things, the  incidents of the domestic life, tho neighborly visltlngs, th-3 timid llutterings of the'  young-birdsr"the^industry^of^theiifamily=  providers. Together they listened to what  (he birds might be saying.  "There," she said, "there goes Mrs. Hop-  about down to call on Mrs. Stay-at-home.  They arc both great gossips. 'Would believe  it?' Mrs. Hop-about is saying, 'young Mrs.  High-flyer has hatched out one of her eggs.  I really expected she would settle down in  this way, and Mr. High-flyer is too happy  anel excited to know what he is about.  Such a time as they are having over that  birthing! One- would thing an egg had  never been hatched before. That's just the  way Hop-about acted, but now he calls  them scrawny little thing'*.' "  Pete's birds talked in the language of the  slums and they gave hints of a drifting life  lidding shelter in garrets and cellars, In  ���.mused areas, under doorsteps, of hunger  that snatched at any scraps, of pinching  cold, of hard words and harder blows.  .Miss Ray taught him to hear In the sough  of the wind through the dark branches the  whisperings of the coming storm. She  showed him the tree .transformed by the  morning sun, when in 'its' moment of supreme beauty it was touched by the first  lenig beam of light and sent back responsive gleams from each sparkling needle.  Then it was that yielding to the magic of  that touch it gave up.the secret of Its own  wonderful arterial structure and stood  warm, radiant and glorious.  The poetic nature which lies near the  surface in childhood was moved. Fete  looked up with eyes that understood. The  tree had opened a way for him into new  life. AVith a growing keenness of comprehension he followed her. Nature is bene-  ficient. Though the child bo impressianable  the linos are not draw so deep as to be in-  -���flacable. The harsh and unlovely past began to be crowded out by the new and  beautiful present. Gradually his strength  came back. His circle of existence widened. He wa sout over tho stone walls and  into the lields and woods beyond, or the  brook held him and he wiwllel lie for hours  under the alders watching the minnows  darting in and out through tho flickering  shadows.  "I do declare Hope," said Mrs. Bates, the  next door neighbor, "I guess yer taldn' as  much comfort out of it as he does. You'd  never know he was the same fellow as used  to go crawling around with his clothes  hanging on him like a scarecrow. He is as  freckled as an adder and his cheeks are beginning to stick out like a chipmunk's. I've  brought over this basket of green apples.

One day Pete came in with a pail of  blackberries he had been picking back of  the village.  '"Well, Pete, when I used to pick blackberries I knew It'was time for school. I  suppose you'll be going with the rest of the  boys?"  "No, I don't. The Gerrys can't ketch me.  I alluz watches- out."  "The Gerrys?"  "Why, yes. Don't you know? The Gerrys,  the fellers as nabs kids, and makes them  go to school." The old Ishmaellte look was  back again.  "We don't have any Gerrys here, Pete,"  said Miss"Ray in a quiet, reassuring tone.  "Don't you? Won't nobody make me go?"  "You shall not go until you are willing."  The subject of school was dropped, and  Miss Ray bided her time. It was a theory  of hers that there was a right time for  everything.if she would wait for It.  Pete went on in his old contented way,  happy in the belief that nothing would  interrupt the careless freedom he was enjoying. He was sifting on the back stoop  one day, his chin on his hand, his eyes  watching the feathery mare's tails high up  in the sky.  "Pete, Pete! oh Pete!" Miss Ray's frightened voice sounded "above the clattering of  falling tinware anel crashing crockery.  Pete ran into the kitchen. Stretched motionless on the floor by the side of an overturned chair and surroundeel by the wreckage of a fallen shelf, lay Miss Ray, with  blood oozing from;'a wound on her face.  Horror stricken he stoud for a moment  looking down on her. He had seen people  look like that before, just so had Baldy  Smith's pal lain when Baldy knocked him  down for claiming too much of the swag,  and the doctor said he was dead.  His heart began to beat again. He darted  out of the room anel across the yard into  Mrs. Bates' kitchen.  ."Come quick. She's'killed," he. shouted.  He was off and out in the street, leaving  Mrs. Bates standing in the middle of the  room speechless with astonishment anel  alarm. Down the shady walk he fled, faster  than he had ran since he fled from his  drunken father pursuing him with an open  knife in his hand. Now, as then, he saw  the ground rising to meet him, felt the terrible throbbing in his head and his feet  growing leaden.  Dr. Parsons had just reached his plate  across the dinner table for a second piece  of his wife's apple pie. "I think, my dear,"  he was saying, but Mrs. Parsons never  learned what he thought, for just then a  boy, wild eyed and breathless, burst Into  the room.  "Oh! She's dead! She's dead!" he cried.  "AVhat! Who?" exclaimed Dr. Parsons',  springing up and grasping him by the  shoulder.  "She���Miss Ray���I ' he gasped.  He-turned and fled with the doctor close  behind him. The neighbors along the route  for days afterwards told of their feelings  as they saw the two hatless llgures tearing up the. street.  It was a subject of general thankfulness  that Pete's diagnosis proved Incorrect. Still  Miss Ray's injuries were not slight, for  the cut across her face compelled her to  submit^to-a^bandage^over-hcr-eyes-and-a-  sprained ankle confined her to the big  lounge in the sitting room for several days.  "I do declare Hope, I don't see how yer  goin' to find yer special providence in this,"  said Mrs. Bates, who in her capacity of  nearest neighbor went back and forth between the two houses like a shuttle.  "There," drawing a long breath, as she deposited a plate of doughnuts on the tabic,  "t just run over with these while they are  hot. They hain't as good as usual, but I  thought perhaps you could eat them while  they are warm. I do wish you could see  that boy of yourn with your white and blue  checked apron tied around his neck. He's  most as good as a woman about the house,  and to think that ho was fetched up in  wickedness!"  But Pete was not regarding Mrs. Bates  with feelings of favor. He resented the  bustling little woman's'zealous care as an  officious appropriation of services which  by right belonged to himself. She ;could  get but scant replies from him as he  worked vigorously to forestall her In every  household task. AVhen everything was ln  order he ran over on his daily errand to the  postofllce and came back triumphant with  a letter.  "Oh, dear!" sighed Miss Ray, "If you  only could read it. I'll have to wait until  Mrs. Bates comes in again."  Pete made no reply, but the eager light  died out of his face, He sat on the edge of  his chair tracing with his toe the pattern  ot the carpet.  Tie-k-tock, tick-tock, the slow swing of  the long pendulum In the old fashioned  clock measured orf the seconds. Miss Ray  heard the click of the latch and knew that  she was alone.  "Oh, yer all right, be ye," she heard Mrs.  Bates saying a lew minutes later. I jus'  stepped in to see if there wasn't something  tho matter. I.just seen Pete running down  the street as tight as he could go, and I  didn't know but that he was after the doctor again. I've got to hurry right back because I left some pies in the oven."  The old clock ticked oft an hour. Miss  Ray wondered what had become of Pete;  he didn't usually go away without tolling  her. Another hour swung by in slow-moving seconds. Tt was strange that he didn't  come  back.  Could  it be A quick  fear  shot through her heart. Something was  wrong. He was so sensitive. Her fear became a certainty. She saw him on the hot  sunny road trudging back to the city.

The quiet of  the house became intolerable. She sat up  "and began tugging at the bandages over her  eyes. A sharp twinge in her ankle made  her sink back on the pillow with a groan.  Suddenly small, boyish feet stormed  through the hall, the door was thrown open  and Pete rushed in.  "I've begun. She's took me," he burst  out excitedly. "I'll read for ye. I know  some now." He caught up a paper and held  It towards her, forgetting her bandaged  eyes. "See here's O an' this with the arms  Is T and this little crooked one is S, an' I  am going back this afternoon."  Miss Ray reached out her arms and drew  him to her in a warm embrace. "Oh, you  blessed by," she said, her voice breaking  into a sob as her face touched the warm  cheek.  Pete was radiant. At that moment he was  ready to go to school all his life.  A day or two later his teacher called in  response to a note to talk over the situation. Miss Ray suggested that owing to  his inexperience it might be well to overlook any slight lapses and to take as little  notice as possible of holidays which he  might appropriate to himself without the  usual formalities. Miss Marsh thought it  could bo arranged.  "Oh," she said when leaving, "I almost  forgot about his name. He said he hadn't  any except Pete. That would hardly do for  the roll book, so I put it in Peter Ray."  And thus Pete the waif, who had never  known a mother's care, the outcast, the  fugitive, ceased to exist, and into a world  of tenderness, gentleness, and love, Into  the prospect of a useful future and an  honorable place among his fellow men entered  that  other  boy,  Peter Ray.
