About zoo years ago John Jacob Astor laid the foundation of the fortune which to-day ex ceeds that of any other in the United States. He realized that the little city on Manhattan Island would one day be a great place, and all the surplus money he be came possessed of was put into real property. This policy the Astor family has 'pursued down to the present time, and it is esti mated that the income of the family every day in the year from its real estate investments is $z,ooo. The Astors, while pur chasing inside property whenever it is desirable, do not by any means confine themselves to that class of investment. Only a year ago a purchase of property, a long distance from the city prop er, was made for something like $2,ooo,o00. Some improvements have since been undertaken, and it is estimated that to-day it is worth $3,ooo,0oo. Did the original John Jacob Astor live to-day, and visit Hel ena, he would undoubtedly take the opportunity now offered to make investments in real estate in the Capital City. Bargains in real property can be had just now which in a month, when the build ing boom fairly starts, will be out of the question. We have now on our books a larger list of property for sale than any other firm of real estate dealers in Hel. ena, and there are in the list a great number of bargains-prop erties, which, if purchased now, will as surely increase in value ai the city is to grow, and to the Hel. ena Astor there are investments which will pay a handsome in terest. Hundreds of men in Helen, are to-day paying rent who, by a little exertion and forethought could own a house of their own pleasantly and conveniently lo cated. It is not too late, how. ever, to make a start in this di. tion, and just now we lare pre pared to offer a number of de cided bargains In this line. To the man of moderate means we say come and see us, and if yot have any snap or vim in your make-up, inside of sixty days you will be paying for a house of your own, instead of adding to the in come of the Astors. Men of larger means, who desire a fin ished house, and do not care tc have the bother of building, will find on our lists some very de sirable and elegant residences, modernly built, ready for occu pancy, and which will be sold on easy terms. There comes a time in the career of almost every person, when, owing to some unforseen circumstance, sickness or death, the chance to make a good in vestment, or the desire to im prove his or her home, it is nec essary to become a borrower. Under such circumstances it is not necessary for the man or woman who owns real estate to pay exorbitant rates of interest. We are the Helena agents of the Jarvis-Conklin Mortgage Trust Co., which has a capital of a mil lion and a half dollars, and are always ready to accommodate those who need financial assist ance. We have loaned money ,n Helena real estate all during the winter, and will continue to io it, at the lowest rate of inter tst. Borrowers are given every advantage consistent with sound .usiness principles. Conveniently located on the "round floor of the Bailey block, Nith commodious oflices, a cor lial invitation is extended to vis tors to call and look over our ists. All the information in our )osession in regard to the city Lnd state is at the disposal of hose unacquainted with Helena nd her resources. A like cor ial invitation is extended to those esidents of the city who desire invest for spe.ui:tion, to build omes, or obtain loans on real state. teIle& Clemenots, AlT HOME AND AROAD, The Subject of Missions Discussed at the Detroit and Cincin nati Meetings. Dr. MoMillan, Ex-President of Mon tana College, Speaks of Western Work. Advancement shown by All Reports Read at the Baptist MeeXtig-Foreign Mislseas Dlousued. Dat.orr, May 26.-At the morning session of the Presbyterian general aseembly the standing committee on board of home mis sions reported through Dr. Raymond, of Albany. He thought the church needed a great missionary awakening. The speaker gave a glance at the northwest, New Eng land and other divisions, especially empha sizing the need of the foreign population. The report shows total receipts for the year of over $098,030; 135 churches were built during the year at a cost of $425,000 and church debts paid amounting to $144.000. The membership in the churches increased 156,000; total in Sunday schools, 178,000. The year closed with a debt of $98,000, which was caused by a great falling off in legaciole Great progress in the work of evangelization was reported from all over the country, and the need of more workers is evident, especially in newly settled por tions of the west. In the new mining and stock-raising states of Montana and Idaho there are great inducements for good work ers, and in the swiftly growing towns in Washington there is imperative need of more men. In Utah, Wyoming and Col orado there has been good progress In New Mexico there is opportunity to reap large harvests. In all but four southern states, South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi and Louisiana, the board has missionaries. Considerable progress has been made among Mexicans, Indians and Mormons. Recommendations were made in conneoc nection with an overture, asking that each presbytery be invited t> send delegates to the fall meeting of the missionary confer enee, and that such delegates shall consti tute a special committee on home missions within the bounds of each presbytery; also urging the board to push Sabbath school work among the foreign population. Dr. MoMillan, the new secretary of the board of home missions, formerly of Deer Lodge, Mont., spoke at some length of the work of the board in the west. He gave a vivid picture of the difficulties of getting a hearing for the gospel in some new towns during their booming period, where Sunday was by far the most busy day in the week. In the west nowadays there is almost noth ing of the old-time rivalry between denomi nations. He said the Indian is very acces sible to the gospel, and work among them is very hopeful. "Had we spent 10 per cent. of what it cost to kill them In evan gelizing them there would have been no ghost dances." He told of the great progress made in New Mexico among Span ish Americans and in Utah. He concluded by saying that this should -ot be let go by default for lack of money. At the afternoon session Col. Elliott F. Shephard, of New York, read the report of the committee on observance of the Sab bath. The standing committee of the hoard of aid to colleges responded through Rev. Dr. Hays, of California. It adds three colleges and five academies, organ ized before 1888, the year when the board was established, as well as twelve colleges and sixteen academies founded since. The aided institutions have $1,173,278 worth of net property. The amount recived during the year was $101.009. The special committee on the board publica tion, through Judge Hand, of Scranton, Pa., stated the reasons for approving the report made early in the session. Admis sions already made by Judge Hand imply a saving of not less than $30,000 a year as a result of tollowing Elder Simmons' recem mendations. Simmons is confident if the rest of his recommendations are adopted a saving of at least $00,000 will annually be effected. THE WEEK OF MISSIONS. Ulosing nessions or the Baptist Meetings at Cincinnati. CINCINNATI, May 20.-At the morning ses sion of the American Baptist Missionary union work in the different missionary fields was discussed. The committee on place and preacher reported Philadelphia for next year, and Rev. W. W. Boyd, of New Jersey, as preacher. Reports of work in Africa, Japan, Burma and other places were made. They invariably showed ad vancement. Rev. W. F. Taylor, of Indian apolis, in speaking of Japan, said the peo ple of that country have become conscious of their strength-"Japan for Japanese." This has proved a hindrance to missionary work, but is not altogether an evil. In Africa, Rev. Mr. Burtrick said there was disappointment in securing colored mis sionaries and in securing a welcome for them there. Africans want white mission aries. At the closing session this afternoon offi cers were elected: Rev. Geo. W. Northrup, of Illinois, president; Rev. H. . Buarrage of Maine, recording secretary. A number of addresses were made by missionaries who were present. The committee on China re ported urging that pastors lead their peo ple in mission studies and that 100 men be sent out as Baptist portion of the 1.000 asked in Shanghai conference. Missionary Berchet, of Chinn, gave interestinu facts as to medical missionaries and urged larger attention to this phase of mission work and influence, pleading that each station have a medical missionary. Rev. Dr. White. of Minnesota. offered a resolution to this effect, which was adopt ed. Dr. Baldwin read a report on European missions. Romanism, he said, is the great hindrance to the cross. Mis sionaries in these neculiarly difficult fields call for large sympathy. ieveral mission aries spoke on the sames subject. This afternoon a joint meeting of the mission societies of women was held and many addresses made, setting forth the work per formed. In the evening, althounh the missionary meeting had formally adjourned, Pike's opera house was filled with an attentive audience. Dr. Mabie, with the aid of a stereopticon, gave illustrations of many mission fields and workers. T'he week of anniversary imetings then concluded with the benediction by 11ev. Dr. Duncan. Withdrew From the Federatlion. P'ITTSNaRO, May 2L.-The river miners of Pittsburg district met to.day and after con seuing the local officers formally withdrew from the United Mine Workers' associa tion, of the Federation of Labor. In tak ing this action the resolution states that they would rather have struck for eight hours and lost on May 1, than to be parties to the back down of the Federation of La bor, and that the district will at once enter the Knights of Labor. ktrlek an slid Charge. LrAnvlrnI.m, Col., May 21. - Yesterday while Morris Ilonovan and Adolph Kang man were working a drill in the Ivanhoe tunnel the drill struck an old charge of giant powder, causing ia terrific eplositon and literally tearing into fragments both menon. reveral miners working near were slightly injured. THREE ROBBERIES, That Many Committed in One Night in Butte City. Burra, May 20.-[Bpecial.]-There were three robberies in Butte last night. Newton Rogers, a ranchman of Madison county, was robbed of something over $100 while sleeping in the livery stable known as the "Farmers' Corral." James O'Donnell was robbed of $100 while asleep in his cabin on Mercury street. A young man named Thomas White slept in the same room. He was arrested for the crime, and the money, just as it was described, was found on his person. He was to-day given twenty-four hours to plead and was placed under a $250 bond. John Williamson, proprietor of a saloon on Arizona street, was robbed of $89 by two masked men just as he was in the act of closing the'saloon for the night. No clue has been found to the robbers, who fred a shot at their victim to give him a better appreciation of the situation. Rumors From Mexlco. NEw Yoax, May 26.-A private letter re ceived to-day from the City of Mexico, written May 19, by a business man, who has ample facilities for getting current infor mation, says there is much reason to be lieve that Mexican authorities are quietly giving aid to Chilian insurgents. The Es moralda has been able to get all the coal she wanted, and private advices from Ma zatlan report that war materials brought from Ban Francisco had been transferred early that morning to ships belonging to Chilian insurgents. The same letter men tions rumors of a secret treaty between Mexico and San Salvador against Guate mala. Ran On the Witness. NEw ORLEANS, La.. May 26.-When the case against Deputy Sheriff White, charged with bribery in connection with the Hen nessy case, was called to-day Leon Burthe, principal witness for the state, was found to be missing. Inquiry elicited the fact that he had gone to St. Louis. after sum mons were served on him. The shipping away of the principal witness in the first of the bribery cases called is regarded as strong circumstantial evidence against the accused. A Fatal Knock-out Blow. LYNN, Mass., May 26.-Jas. Burns, of Lynn, who was knocked out in a battle with Harry Tracy, of Cambridge, Monday even ing, died this morning. The knock-out blow broke a blood vessel in his brain and he never recovered consciousness. Tracy has been arrested on the charge of man elaughter.

D., May 26.-The govern ment closed its case in the Plenty Horses trial to-day with the testimony of eye wit nesses of the crime. Thomas Flood, inter preter for Pine Ridge, testified that the prisoner could speak English fluently. The defense introduced the testimony of Ameri can Horse and Winm. Thompson, of Fort Keogh, Mont., and will probably close the case to-morrow. The Robbers Foiled. BANGoo, Me., May 26.-The train which left Bangor for St. John last night was held up just beyond Enfield by four men, who fired at the engineer and care. The engi neer pulled out before any one was hurt by the robbers, who were evidently after the contents of the baggage and mail cars. A Question of Authority. PHILADELPHIA, May 26.-The city com missioners met this morning and ignoring the appointment by Gov. Pattison of a suc cessor to City Treasurer Bardsley proceeded to elect Richard C. Oellrrs, business mana ger of the Record, to fill the office. The question as to who has the power to fill the ofice of city treasurer has given rise to much controversy and will undoubtedly be left to the courts to decide. Bardsley is under guard at his house, his condition still being too serious to warrant his removal. He is unable to obtain $50,000 bail, Wants to Keep the Work. NEw Yonx, May 26.-An injunction was granted by Judge Ingraham to-day, re straing J. H. Wallace, president of the Wallace American Trotting register, from transferring his stock and plant to the re cently organized National Trotting tegis ter company, of Chicago. The proceedings were brought by Charles D. Sibley, who has printed the work since it was first publish ed. Sibley says he has expended consider able money in type, etc., in the belief that he was to continue to do the printing of the work indefinitely. Policemen Club School Boys. IowA CITY, May 25.-Students of the state university went to Grinell and defeated the Iowa college team in a ball game. The re sult was telegraphed here and 300 students went to the depot to welcome the victors. They made a tremendous uproar. The po lice interfered and a row ensued, in which two or three students were badly hurt by policemen's clubs. The offloers were also well battered. More trouble is feared. The polipemen ale generally believed to have been in the wrong. A Grand Ratiflestlon. TOPEKA, Ran., May 26.-The Farmers' alliance of Kansas is making preparations for a grand ratification of the Cincinnati conference work. At a regular meeting of the three thousand sub-alliances of the state, at which the platform will be consid ered, a vote was taken and the report for war ed to headquarters and to reform papers.

PrrISnuao, May 26.--The limited on the 'ennsylvania last night dashed into a car riage at Mills' crossing. Miss Mollie Mc Nally, aged 17, and Richard Fox were iln stantly killed, and Miss Bertha McCreary was badly injured. When the train pulled into Pittsburg to-night the engine presented a shocking appearance. The pilot, wheels and even steps were clotted with blood, torn pieces of dress and strings of women's hair. A Ghastly Find. IIa.LAN, In., May 20.-Mrs. Christen Pederson and four children, whose ages range from three to ten, were found hang ing in the cellar of their house near here. It is thought they have been hanging there since Wednesday. The husband was sent to the insane asylum about a week ago, and the finding of these bodies shows the wife should have gone too, as she must have been crazy. SInoerlty tmlrlurs. NEwpunr, Ii. I.

The Almost Unprecedented Drain on America Followed by No Uneasiness. The Stage Drivers of Paris Out on a Strike-Much Inceonvenience to the Puble. LonotN, May 26.-The Statist, reviewing the financial situation, expresses sur prise at the wonderfully cool manner in which Americans have faced the tremend ous drain of gold from New York, and says it is, perhaps, the most remarkable circunc stance connected with the markets of the world. The Statist goes into figures, and statesthat on last Wednesday £85,000 in gold were shipped from New York, and that dur ing the two previous weeks over £300,000 sterling were drawn from the same quarters. Since Wednesday £300,000 additional have been ordered, making a total of nearly £8,500.000 sterling within three weeks, and since the beginning of the present year Europe has drawn from the United States over £10,000,000 sterling. The Statist then reviews the financial situation in the Argen tine Republic, and expresses the opinion that the only chance for the early re covery of prosperity there is to be found in the liquidation of the state banks and the establishment of new ones commanding larger resources. The thirty millions of their paper money is now worth little more than one-fourth of its nominal value. It would tend to the success of the scheme if toe new bank were to have directors selected from their own citizens of well known financial ability, with a gov ernor, who should be appointed by the gov ernment. The Statist evidently takes a gloomy view of the situation all around. It suggests that Argentine finances might be improved by a subscription of Europen capital, but in that case the subscribers would deserve the fate in store for them. The new banks might prove a good investment if managed on European principles, free from the mis chievous influences of the government. The Statist expresses the opinion that a crisis is likely to happen at any moment in Portugal, and the only salvation seems to be a compromise. PARIS CABMEN. They Are Out on a Strike for Shorter Hours --A Riot. PAaRs, May 2G.-The strike of stage drivers continues to-day ntr- is cansing much excitement. Enormous crowds of peoile surrounded the depots of the Omni bus company, around:whicht here is a strong guard of police and troops. The company, assisted by the police, to-day attempted to run several stages. The strikers first stoned them and then made a charge, driving away the police. The drivers were dragged from the boxes and rounded vigorously, while their stages were overturned. Efforts of the police were useless in the face of the over whelming mob. At one time it was thought the troops would be called upon, but it is expected they will not be ordered out unless the situation is very serious. The police were later reinforced and imade sev eral arrests. Public sympathy is with the strikers, who are out for shorter hours and the reinstatement of some of their companions who were dis charged because they belonged to the union. Many newspapers of the city opened subscriptions in behalf of the strik ers and their families in order to enable them to successfully push their fight. It is announced this evening that the government has decided to interfere in the strike. It is added that the government's determination to interfere is solely for the purpose of assuring conveyance for, the public,. who naturally suffer considerably from the total suspension of stage service. Ata late hourr the ornlibus strike ended in a vcntnry fur the trilkes. Peanle Among Jews. ODESSA, May 26.-The rumor current here that the czar intends to make a thorough clearance of Jews from St. Petersburg, Moscow and Odessa caused groat conster nation among the Jewish colony in this city. The Jewish residents believe this alarming report more readily because they know the government has been requested to interfere in behalf of the Christians of this city, four-fifths of the trade of Odessa, it was claimed, being in the hands of the Jews. Crowds of Jews arrive daily from jKieff and elsewhere and embark for Jaf fray. Many of these people are in desti tute condition, the wealthy Jews declining to render them any assistance. Saluted the Insurgent Flag. Ciry of MExCoo, May 26;.-The Diaro del IHogar publishes a letter from Acapulco which says the Chilian insurgent steamer Eameralda entering that port saluted the Mexican flag and the Mexican government in return saluted the Esmeralda's flag, thus making it anl open question whether this was a recognition by Mexico of the Chilian insurgents. The captain of the Esmeralda in an interview at Acapulco a few days ago, said it was not his intention to take coal by torce or he would have done so before. He also said he was not in a hurry to leave port, but was waiting further instructions. Clemlency Plromised. ST. PETERUIsURO.

Bussey, who is the assistant secretary of the in terior, having in charge all pension matters, is the next man on the list of offioe holders under the present administration whose corrupt methods and dishonest dealings will be ventilated by the newspapers until he is forced to retire to that oblivion from which John W. Noble dragged him. Bussey is out in an interview in the New York Tribune in which he asserts 3o0ng Ranm' s innocence and in which he attempts to ex plain away the ugly thingswhich now stand against Raum, Sr., and the pension office. He does all this in spite of the fact that there are several copies of the evidence taken in the case of Baum, Jr., in ex istence, showing positively that he committed the worst kind of a breach, and in fact was really guilty of criminal practices in the disposition of of flees of the pension bureau. Bussey states that there was little or nothing to condemn in him. The matter is being investigated and unless the administration determines to cover up the scandal and corruptness of the pension bureau a criminal prosecution will be brought against young Raum. There is good reason to believe, and in fact it is stated upon the best of authority, that the Smith-Strawn case was only a sample case in the list of which young Raum was guilty. The number of offices he has sold out to people for greater or less sums is said to be as high as one-third of the offices outside of the qualified service appointed since he be came assistant chief of the bureau. Bussey wanted Tanner's place. He schemed in every way to injure the poor corporal, who was more of a fool than a knave, and he was very much disappointed when it was found that he could not be put in charge of the pension ofice as commis sioner. He was 'Tanner's most bitter ene my, but he is friendly to the Raums. One reason why he was not appointed commis sioner was because of reports that he had been unfriendly to Tanner, and because, having schemed to secure Tanner's removal, it would be said that he had done so be cause he wanted the place, and that the re ward of bouncing the corporal would be his appointment to a more lucrative and money-making position than that which he occupied, for the commissionership of the pension bu!eanu has come to be regarded as a pretty fat office if in the hands of an adroit and skillfal per son who knows how to make the most of it. Bussey has tried a different tack with Baum-seeming to be convinced that old Raum must go-and while he is doing the friendly act he is still a candidate for the place as much as he weas when Corporal fanner was bounced in deference to the demand of public opinion. liBut Bussoey himself is the next on the list of pension office corruptionists who must w:alk the plank. Nothing will save either Raum or Bussey but the interference of the adminis tration in behalf of the men it haes created. It is hard to tell just why Bassey is trying to cover up the BeRaum scandal, unless, as has been intimated, he is afraid that an in vestigation will reflect seriously upon his own career and may lead to disclosures which will place him as deeply in the mire as the Raucns. CONFIDIENCE IS ASSUMED. The Condition of the Treasury not Reas curing-Notes. WasrTuroro, May 26.-In spite of the rose-colored views of Senator Allison re garding the condition of the treasury, it is a noteworthy fact that the higher ofioials of the government are considerably wor ried trying to figure out how they are going to meet the obligations now maturing with out completely wiping out the surplus. On the fourth of next month the treasury will be called on to pay out $26,000,001) for pen sions, and this is really ten millions less than the estimates called for, but as the funds are running so low in consequence of the heavy appropriations made by iteed's billion-dollar congress, an order was issued recently to allow only small pensions, and thus cut down pay ments in the aggregate. Next winter the secretary in his recommendations to congress will be compelled to ask for a large sum to supply deficiencies. This will fall on the democratic house. T'bo shortage was predicted in the last house by Mr. Dockery, of Missouri, one of the most act ive democrats on the appropriations com mittee. Secretary Foster, with refreshing confi dence, said this morning that he antici pated no difficulty in meeting the quarterly pension payments, aggregating $26,000,000, which fail due June 4. T'he available cash balance is now nearly $16,0tK0,000, and will go beyond $0,0t0X,0t00 by the early part of June by the continued excess of receipts over expenditures. The secretary's confi dence is not generally shared. Quite a number of Ohio republicans are at present in thecity. It is said that they are on the still hunt for officers, and are making the claim that patrounage wiil help out wu;derful.y, in view of the fact that the political contest in the liuckeye state is to be such ai lively one this year. They are considerably troubled over the conclusion of the Ohio ,armers' alliance to put a tick et in the field, but while professing to be lieve that the democrats will be hurt as badly as t: a republicans. it is observed that they would much prefer to have the battle squarely between the two old parties. Seunator Vance has returned from North Carolina, and will soon start for a trip to Europe. While abroad he will collect some valuable information to be used in his ttritlt epeches in the senate. The New York World of to-day prints a telegram of some length from tougressman Cooper, of nludiana, in which he expresses the determination to ask for a rigid exami nation of the pension office when the house meets next winter. He says that, polit cally, the investigation ordered last year was a farce, and that the packed republican committee shielded lunimo, and would not let the prosecution examine important witnesses. Isnuine Silver Certilfleates,. WSimuiu'roy, May 20.-Attorney General Miller has decided that the secretary of the treasury lhaes no authority, under the act of July 17, 188*0, to issue treasury notes pro vided for by that act. except In payment of bullion purchased, but that gain or sigen iorsge afising from tihe coinage of bullion tinder the act, when paid into the treasury, becomes part of the gental cash, andI may be used like any other.

MRS. BAKNABY'S WILL. -The Second One to ite Contested--itatie of the First One. Panovmiao, It. I., May 2.--The legal contest over Mrs. Barnaby's money bide fair to be bitterly fought, and the cop.lht sion the matter will probably await the end of the trial in Denver to determine who compassed the woman's death, it is certain, however, that the Worrella of Chester will fight tosnustain the second will, the Chester document, which the family of Mr. John H. Conrad, of Billings, Mont., and Miss Mand Barnaby have given notice that they will contest. This will gives the Worrells $10,000, and the first will drawn in this city leaves them nothing. Mesrs. Vanslyck and Vanslyck are to contest the will on behalf of the family, Mr. Lyourgna Sayless has been retained by Dr. Graves as the executor appointed and as the repre sentative of that functionary in the law. Mr. Sayless will be obliged to fight to sus tain the will. Nothing is known as to the' probable attitude of the Bennette, of Blue Mountain lake. They receive $10,000 also in the Chester will and are left out of the earlier document. Grace church, in this cisy, is the only other legatee interetcd4 under the second will for any considerable amount, and the attitude of this aeoPora tion in the case is still in doubt. While the Barnabys were welcomed at Grace church, the ostentations and somewhat vulgar display to which they were given went sadly against the grain of some of the church people, and it is quite likely that the corporation will await the settle ment of the case in the probate court an silence, rather than appear to engage in the scramble for the dead woman's money. The contest will proceed on this plan. If the second will, which is now reognlaed as the last will and testament of Mrs. Bar naby, is broken, the first will becomes the last will and testament. Then it will be necessary to go to probate with that. It it is broken, the Barnaby family direct will then be the heirs to the estate, proyiding that no other will is uncovered. Is is sad at the municipal court that probably the contest will not be soon finished, with the person appointed execator on trial for murdering the testatrix of the will; officials say it would be very singular to accept such an executor, providing the second will was probated. hither it will be necessary to desicnate his successor, if the will is proven, as executor, or the court will decide to carry over the contest until Dr. Graves, if proven innocent, is released from the charge of the crime. Speculated With the Money. PrrLArELr PIA, May 26.-Before the cty council committee invsetigating(the affaire of City Treasurer Bardeley, to.day, National Bank Examiner Drew testified as to what he knew regarding the affairs of the Key stone bank. The most surprising testimony vet given, however, was that of George Hume, of the firm of Robert Glendennin & Co., hankers and brokers. Hams said that Ba, dety, from January to September last, was a heavy operator in stocks through his firm. In that time they purchased for him between $00,000 and $600,000 worth of stock of various com panise. It was purchased outright by Bardsley and never on margins. During December Bardslev closed all his holdings in these stocks. 1Hume was unable, with out books, to give the amount lost or gained by Bardsley in the transaction, but, so far as he remembered, it wassmall either way. Hunte's firm borrowed $400,000 from Bardsley last fall, paying the prevailing rate of interest. Fertile Lands Ceded.
