St. Pavl, Minn., Aoril 11. 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

all t5je property at the , fcrt,' and he and
Lis associates in the movement became pos
sessed of hundreds of thousands of dollars'
worth of property. 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. What Kiel now wants is to get for
the other half-breads what the insurrection cf
.$iv.rgofc lor the peoplo of Fort Garry.

company b.-lore tliar asf eiat'.n sold its
lands to the Canadian government. 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. Viien ei iii-7-itiou

bayonets stood guard. The dominion sent
troops to quell the insurrection. Their com

She is refined hitc-lieetinil woman, who puts

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. Wall tfu l..lhfl
place to get the new. of my doing and in
tentions," he good-naturedly replied, as he
leaned back in the easiest chair contained in
the library of his Filta avenue house. ''But
I don't mind telling you of one thing that I
did bring back fro n Cuba a bad cold. It
was warm weather when my yacht saile l
out of Havana harbor, and as we came
northward I neglected to thicken my clothes
as fast as the temperature fell, so that by
the tiina we sighted Sandy Hook on a bitter
cold morning i was ivs hoarse as I am now'
'What is your opinion of Cuba, as to its
prospective value comm?rcially "
'There is tho opportunity for immense de
velopment. I hailed almost completely
round Cuba and made incursions from a
number of points in spite of tho fact that I
had neglected to provide myself with a, pa-.s-porfc
before starting from Xew York, as the
law of the islanl recpiire?. Most of these
trips were made from Havana, and there
the officials were kind enough to b3 a little
lax; but on landing at Cape Cruz, where an
outlook is kept, i believe, for raids by Cu'.an
patriots, I was all but arrestel and seat a
prboner back to Havana.'
'"Will you give an idea of the impression
that Cuba made on you as to her worthiness
for commercial enterprise by Americans:''
'Why, yes. The island has tho climate
anl soil for enormous productiveness iu
wnys which are impossible to any portion of
the United States. Only the rim of Cuba
has been touchou, practically, by the disad
vantaged and n t very enterpri-ing plant
ers, inland lies a region. 100 mile long t-y
thirty or forty broad, that can't bo beaten
on the face of the earth, for fertility, and it
is a wilderness. 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.

only common maus of transportation.
