Tuesday, October 27, 1903. 3ike all persons who permit them selves to be greatly angered at some dliappointment, the Canadians seem ingly are in a frame of mind which for the time being makes them irre sponsible and they do not know what Sthey want. This is made apparent by Sthe difference of opinion that has been %xpressed by the leading men and e fapers across the border. Thus 11e some of them are conveying ed- threats of possible future hos 4enwonstratlons, others are talk nexaiLon and openly urging o aespe what they desig. ijusce of the mother ia another por independence. for the Cana . upon it." rlerlooked Mran irresponsibility caused by intense an ger. After 'our northern neighbors have had time to cool off and compose themselves they will get over their present pet and should England again request their help, as it did in the South African war, nothing further would be heara of the present talk of withholding -assistance from the mother country. While generous and neighborly in all things and at all times, yet it Is doubtful whether many Americans would care to go to the extent in neighborly generosity to Canada that the Minneapolis Journal urges-ces sion of the two islands off Port Simp son, awarded us by the boundary com mission, thus giving the Canadians complete command of that "potential ly important port." It is because ot its potentiality in the possible direc tion hinted at by the Journal that but few citizens of the United States would willingly accede to the request it makes. It is undoubtedly true that the danger of war with England is slight. Even slight as it is, it would still be unwise to do anything that some time in the future might prove dangerous to us. Under the arrange ment entered into with the United States the Canadians have free ac cess to their Yukon possessions. Un doubtedly this courtesy will be con tinued. While Skagway is not exactly a neutral port, as far as actualbenefits go it is practically such in its rela tions to Canada, consequently the proposition favored by the Journal will find few adherents on this side of the line. Besides, the Canadians have told us very plainly that they want nothing in the way of charity from us and the offer of an island or two from the United States might meet with scant appreciation. The users of Ithe weed nicotian should not permit themselves to lose heart no matter how much the ene mies of their solacing companion may inveigh against it. Through the use of tobacco an Indiana man has recov ered the powers of speech after a two years' dumbness. A dream told him that if he were to chew tobacco he would recover the use of his vocal organs. Although not much of a be liever in dreams and a non-user of tobacco, he concluded to make the experiment. The first "chaw" en abled him to make some slight sounds. Two hours' chewing enected a cure and now he speaks with all his old time volubility. While it may not have given them speech in the first instance, many of the users of the "weed" long ago learned its effect in the direction of loosening the tongue. To them the news of the recovery of the Indianian will probably be not so very astonishing. A long memory has the Meagher Republican. It cannot forgive Captain Haanah for having voted for a demo cratic candidate for United States senator, after having been elected as a republican from his county and as such was supposed to De above the temptations and inducements that were held out in that memorable contest. The Kepublican takes occa sion to refer to that event since the captain's trouble with his company of militiamen at Big Timber. It volun teers to outline an answer for ,te captain to the governor to meet the charges of his subordinates, but it is doubtful whether the erstwhile min ister of the Gospel will care to avail himself of the Republican's offer of assistance. As was to be expected, Dowie's ef fort to regenerate wicked New York gives promise of ending in a "glorious 'ailure." The members of.his "army" are beginning to return to Zion and the chief himself is giving unmistak able evidence of becoming discourag ed. His statement that he to in the receipt of letters threatening him with personal violence should be ac cepted as an introduction to his own speedy removal and return to the place where he is supreme. it is pav ing the way for what he hopes will be a retreat without dishodor. New York is too big a propsitto for eves a As in yacht building it leads Lthe world, so does America excel all other nations when it comes to constructing modern fighting ships. The latest ad dition to our navy holds -the world's record for speed, developed on a trial run. It is to be hoped that the Mis souri will be able to maintain an equal record when it comes to a matter of showing a doubting world In some other regard. Dan Patch has once more success fully upheld his title as king of the pacers, and he did it without any artificial aid, thus successfully defend ing the claims of his owner that he is the best of the lot and does not require windbreaks or other contriv ances to pull him along. REGARDED AS SERIOUS. Alarm Felt Concerning Condition of Walter Murphy. Considerable alarm is felt at the condition of Walter Murphy, who 14 confined at St. Vincent's hospital with a wounded foot. Last Wednesday he was engaged in gathering hay and while using a 'horse rake one of the teeth of the machine, entered his left foot, a short distance below -the Instep, producing a ragged wound several inches in length. He was brought to the city and placed in the hospital, where a doctor attend ed him. Although extremely painful, the injury was not regarded as very serious until Sunday, when a high fever manifested itself and a hurried call for the attending physician was I made. Further examination of theI wound revealed the presence of frag ments of leather and also some piece* of cloth. These were removed and it was thought that a turn.for the better would follow. Yesterday, 'however, the patient was -worse and the doctor I is quoted as saying that he consider ed him as being anything but out of danger. Broke Into His House. S. LeQuinn of Cavendish, Vt., was robbed of his customary health by in vasion of chronic constipation. When Dr. King's New -fe Pills broke 4tto his house his trouble was arrested d now he's entirely cured. -They're gusr aliteed to core. 250 at Chapple Drur SIM ROBERTS ARRESTED. Held at Miles City for Grand Larceny. Miles City, Oct. 26.-Sim B. Rob erts was arraigned before Justice Kennie this afternoon on a grand larceny charge and pleaded not guilty. The charge is made by Andrew Chapman. Mr. Chapman's story-is in brief that Roberts sold a horse, a gelding branded NI on the left shoul der and valued at $60, to Jack Smith. Smith gave the horse to Chapman in payment of a note. One of Roberts' boys, it is alleged, came to Chapman and asked to borrrow the horse for the use of his mother. Chapman loaned the horse and Roberts, it is said, took the horse to town and sold it to Doctor Schrumpf for $80. Attorney Sanner was retained by the defendant. As Mr. Sanner was engaged in the warehouse matter in the district court, the hearing of the case was set for November 4. Read The Gazette and keep posted on local happenings, I ANNOUNCEMENT | W. H.
