LouiiRiel, the leader of the present revolt which is givhig the Canadian authorities so much trouMe, is a native of Manitoba, having been bora there 41 years ago, under the old Hudson Eay reiuiei He is of French ancestry, but has sjine Indian blood in his .veins. He is well educated, bold and insinuating in his maimers, . and just the man. te lesd the htif -breeds.

A number of loyal eiv attempted to resist Ricl, but they were put down, and one Thomas Scott was shot. When Col. Wolseley, now Gen. Lord Wolse ley, and the Canadian militia, to the number of about .1,000, appeared in front" of . Fort Cany, Kiel iled and the provisional govern ment was dissolved. At that time some con cessions were made to the haif-breedsof Man itoba, each of them getting 240 acres of laiiiL This satisfied the he If -breeds of that province. The present outbreak is owing to ths lad thac the half-breeds of the remaining por tions of the northwest weie not simihrrlv treate.1.

This little private i:t' ii:iect:e:i enriched the eldor Riei and made him one of liie small great men of his locality. The spirit of revolt i.- therefore, in the blood of Louis Riel. His father was ambitious to make his son a gentleman and to school him in all the ways of the white man's culture. The youth was a strong, bold, black eJ lxy, with the mixed barbaric and French natures stirring in his lawless, restless soul. He was sent to a Canadian college. He learned easily the lessons se t hini, bat tiie discipline of the good fathers who were his teachers ma le no im pression on him. His untamed nature burst all restraints.. He repelled the advances of his schoolmates and shrank from human companionship, like a wild creature of the woods. At length by some chance a fellow student of refined, studious disposition was thrown with Louis Riel some what. He at once gained a marvelous inhu ence over th ) half-breed youth. Louis formed a strange and strong attachment to the gentle comrade of white bloocL He began to change, to heed his tasks and the admonitions of his teachers. His manners grew milder, lie be gan to he courteous and less reserved to those around him. The wild half-breed son of Riel the rebel gave promise of becoming a gentle man. In a week's time all was changed. The gentle white schoolmate fell ill one day. The ailment developed into smalljH)x. and he was removed to hospital. Young Riel passion ately refused to remam at his lessons. He ran away from college and followed the schoolmate to his hospital cot-bed. He watched his friend with dog-like devotion, a devotion, alas! that was all ia vain. The young man died of the plague. From the day of his death Louis Riel was little seen in towns and citi.i-s. He tl.'d iv; hir: w..ckIs, up in th? great Ma.iitola eour.rry. All the wildness in him broke out again. From that time on he dwelt among br.lf breeds and Indians, the h-lde--.t. .sfonesr, cm-Wt l-arliarian of them all.

IBi-ooklya Kagle Interview. It is certain that a millionaire can't stir without being followed by scrutiny and con jecture. The climax of the week's talk in Wall street the other day was that Jay Gould's yachting exidition, from which he has just returned, was chiefly for tho cap ture of Cuba. The assertions were positive that, having jot Western Union and Union Pacific into a condition leaving him time and capital for other interests, he had decided to go into the railway and commercial develop meiit of the island to our southeast. The question was put to Mr, G aiI J di rectlyv, '.Xo, down iu.

'"Will you give an idea of the impression that Cuba made on you as to her worthiness for commercial enterprise by Americans:'' 'Why, yes.

There is a miserable rail rumiing - it would ba more correct to say walking in the direction of this section, but without reaching it. This line extends from Havana to Matauzas on the ceast, and thence southea -tward altogether less than 10 J miles, striking a railroad that crossss the i-lani in a straight iiiu from Sagua ou the north shore to Cienfuegos cn the south. That is all there is of railroading in Cuba. The coast skirting steamers are really the only common maus of transportation.
