Paillard, man ager of the Syndicat Lyonnaise du Klon­ dike, filed a fOl'lmal charge against the local authorities with French Con­ sul Turenne. In hi s charge he· main· tains that he, an innocent citizen, was assaulted on the publie h ighw'ay by Joe Barrett and t hen instead of re­ ceiving the protection of t he police was arrested, and put on trial for fight­ ing.

Now, at Dawson I saw acres of wild red currants. If any gentle men are here who have been in Dawson they will perhaps reme mber where it WaJS. I just &neal(ed there. It was in lower t own, across t he bridge, a rather na.ughty place for an old gentleman . Now, '.le r ed currants were on a hillsid, e whioh was com­ pletely covered, and the currants were sweeter than ours. By Mr. Cochrane: Q. Was· it forbi dden fruit.? A. Tha t is the meaning of t he berries ~ot being sweet. This year there we re a g reat man y more rasp· berries thall Qj.fore, quite a number of them, but the blueberries and ' the black and red currents were an im­ mense quantity, and those blueher· ries covered the hil1s. They were a great crop. There is one thing I might mention now about the growth in t];re creeks, but it is outside the scope of my talk. This is just one pIallt I brougbt to show you. It is called by the farmers on the prairie the crocus. That plant was gathered at Fort Yukon, at the junction of the PeIly and Lewes riv, ers, on the 24th of April, 1899, and I may as well tell yon tbat particular species flowered on the farm two "ays ago (April 15th) and we caU thi's an early spring here. This was gathered in latitude 621-2 on the 24th of April, 1899. Mr. Wright-Almost as early as here. By . Mr. Roblnson (Elgin.): Q. Are most of the small fruits plentiful there? A. I have written in my notes taat all kinds of small fruits would grow tb ere, and I think, indeed, the , Siber­ ian crab will sucoeed there. As regards vegetables, YOll have no COD­ ception of them at ' all from seeing th em here. I saw a cabbage on the 23rd of August weighing nine pounas, and I took the leaves, great oblong leaves, at the brose, and' 1 measured them, and each one was two of my feet, 22 inches, across', and you can understand what a garden would be like with cabbage each covering an area of four feet. They told me that turnips and the late cabbage grow far better when, it g,ets dark. They don't do so well in the summer as when the nigb,ts come and in the latter part of August and September they do best. I By Mr. Sherritt: Q. Did you say that apples grow there? A. I beHeve they will. By Mr. Stephens: Q. What a'bout beans? A. I have white beans here. There are' some first·class beans which , 1 got DAW'SO,N AMAT'EyR ATlHLETIC ASSOCIATION, WI H.ER'E THE HOI RTICU'L TUR'AL FAIR WAS HELD. # The children's performance yester· Works. cate.

Street fmprov ement work far the year is nearing an end. About all that remains to · be dane I by the city is the construction of cross-wal~s on certain streets where property o wn­ ers have bnilt their sid· ew· alks. When that work is completed the streets will 'be in sh'ape for the winter. Nearly the whole city force is at work on the cross-walks. The last oIf these will probably be finished within a week or two. At a recent seas· ion of the city council the street committee was voted an extra appro· priation in order that the municipali­ ty.'s promise to property holders· who. built walks might be carried out.

'At the first glance, it was hard tu understand how any intelligent com­ mission could act as the Treadgold royal j:lommissi'On did during the clos­ ing hours of the sitting. The effor t was determin ed and de­ liberate to prevent such answers as Clarke 'Was giving fr'Om forming part of the record. One of the alleged purposes of the commission was to ascertain what w'Ould be a preferable solution of the water scarcity to the one complained lot. Numbers of witnesses, expert and p1ain, professional and practical, min­ ers and concession aires, were asked this ques tion: Have you thought 'Of any other scheme than the Treadgold, and wha, t d'O you suggest to this commission '!' Joe Clarke had this question. put to him, and in spite of almost continua) interruption gave this important an­ swer. [mp'Ortant as this is the only reply by which this well known prop­ osition appears as of record. Clarke said: 1 consider that tile only perminent and effective soluti'On of the water question is to ' install a government water system by bringing enough water for all the creeks and hills fr'Om the upper Klondike .by grav­ Itation, to such an elevati'On that it can be landed near the Dome and . d'itched 'or piped . into any cree'k or onto any hill in the Indian river or Klon­ dike districts. This scheme has' 'been publicly conceded, and discussed, and formed the basis of the promise in L"e Ros1:l platform that the Yukon 'Would havEl#lI. pU'blic govern.ment owned wat­ er supply installed. The cost would be between $3,000,000 and $5,OOO,OOQ." In answer to the question, 'when do you think hydraulic concessions should be granted, if at all? Olarke said: "1 agree with the regulations as n'Ow in force, that no hY'draulic concession should be granted for ground upon whiCh or in t he vicinity 'Of which any placer mine is w'Orking 'Or in, good standing." R idley's cross examination tfiat might bave tal,en a week elicited one or two clear statements. 'IDo you not think the introduction of capital desirable?" "It depends on what it is used for, certainly not to buy claims. IMost of the 'wages which have been lost are upon cla.ims bought fr'Om the original stakers by all eged capitalists."

Traditions About the Mammoth. 111 the year 1799, an aim est complete mammoth was found at the mouth. of the Lena river, in northern ,siberia, and' seven years later was brought, as far as it was feasible, to ,St. Peters­ hung. The flesh was still ·se J.resh that the welves, foxes an!l bears de­ voured it eagerly, and the Jakuts. wel­ comed it as food for their dogs . Scientific investigation of the remains diselosed that the subject had been an immense an·imal o· f the elephant ord, er, an'd was coveredJ with long red hair. A section of the skin and, some of the hair of this Lena mammeth, which was much discusseru at the time, w'ere exhibited in the Berlin zuologi­ cal museum, Emperor Friedrich 'Wil­ he lm . Ill. having received it as a present from Czar Alexander. The curious belief regardl ing the mammot.h is current amo, ng the inhab­ itants of the northerru icelands that these gTeat creatur, es inhabit the in­ terior of the earth, occasienally bur­ rewin. g out to the surface and dY'ing immediately on coming in conta.ct with. daylioght. TlLere is ,of course, no truth in thi, s old, JakJut tr. adatlon, which simply attemlJted a-I1 explana­ tion of the fact that the bodies w·ere founod, undoer the surface of the earth. The natives called. them mammantu -earth, diggers. They fJ1E~quenL1Y fpund' enormous tusks' and tbJigh­ bones im'beddedl in the banks of rlV­ ere, and. it is reported among; them tha-t even whole carcasses, with the flesh and' blood, and showing hard'ly any sign or doecomposition-as If, .n­ d;eed, they had, 'but recently dlied­ have' been washed out fram the bank by tbe water at high tide. It is bel· ieved that the mammoth in- habited' certain 'sections of middle a.nd rwrthern Europe, Siberia and ..•• e northern parts of North America. ~ •• s bones', however, have been found III widely varying regiens. The remains of food, found in his teeth show -_at he ate the needles of the larch and pine trees. Whether he su1.J.sis.tedl on other vegetation besides this, there is, as yet, no evidence. It is proba­ ble tha.t the mammoth roamed' about in great herds, for his bones bave been found in grea.t heaps. Tbe ivory of the mammoth has· ror a long time been a valuable artICle of commerce. The Chinese discevered its value hun.dreds of years ago, and it was ·some time later before t he '~i- berian ivory fields were systematical­ ly worked. NQIW more than one-qua r­ ter of the 'ivory in use in the w'orld has come from nor,thern Asia. The mammoth belongs to the post­ t er tiary, or pleistocene, epoch of geology, and i· s believed, to have been cOOltemporaueous with man in France, and probably elsewhere. Some rude bu t graphic odlI'awings ef the mammoL h have been d-iscovered, t he bes· t known of these being the etching on a por­ tien of tusk foundl in the cave of La Madelaine, in France. , When and how th· e mammoth , finauY extinct is a matter abou t which very little is definitely known. It is possible that some great epi­ demic, similar to the rinderpes-t in Africa, sp'read' its fatal germs over the entire northITands, after Which we floods, perhaps, completed' the anni­ hilation of the alread,y sorely afflicted herds.

BUI DDHISM AND CH'RI I'STIIA'NITY. Mr. George Shann, in a paper on "'St. Luke and Buddhism," shows the many close resem'blances 'between the mythical origins of Buddlhis.m a-nd ChristianitY. . "In the first place, there is a curi- DUS correspondence, not only between the facts recorded concernring, the or­ igin ef the two lives, but alsO' In reo. s'pect of the way of presenting these facts; G 8!utama Buddha was said to have been supernaturailly begotten, yet he [s call1edl th e son of a lQng be­ cause Sudldhodana, the husband of his mother, is styled' a kinl g; in the ·same way, Jesus Christ is called the son or descendant of King David, altheug1b the peddgree from [)avid is tl'8Jced on.]y to Joseph, who, as we are ruis­ tinctly told, . . had nothing to do with the birth of his wife's firs t born son. ":Again, Gautama, who was also a first born child, cam.e illlto the world when Ibis mother was aw'aY' from home on a journey, a circumstance to 'which Budd·hist writers a.ttach great im­ portance, since it was one of the es­ sential conditiens· of Budodahood; St. Luke, alone of the Evangel'ists, thought it necessa,ry to recol'd the tact that qesus also was born while his mot her was a way from home and on a jouTney. W e learn, too, froIDI Bud­ d, a,bist writings that when Gautama was born there was rejoicing among the devas, or spirits of the upper a,ir; while, according to St. Luke, the s hep­ herds of Bebhlehem witnessed a simi- lar rejoicing of the a1lJgels at the birth of Jesus. When the neW'-born Gautama was first formally presented to his 'father,' Sudd'hodana, there was amon. g the spectators an alged· s,aint who adored the child' and! pro]JIhesied that he would be a Buddha and, wowl'd show the way o.f salvation to men; St. Luke tells us that Jesus w'as pre­ sented' in the temple while still an infant, and that a similar p,r·aphecy was then uttered. by 8lmeon, wlhe was 8!pparernly an old man. "During his youth, Gautama was not apprecia;ted' at his true worth, 'but on one occasion, being put to the test bY' his skiN' in .manly exerCises, but also by his wisdom; it is record· ed· in Luke thoat Jesus also, at the age of twelve, astonished 'the dlOctors In [ue temple by .his und'erstanding al1d an­ swers.

IDENTIFY VICTIMS Police Increase Their Precautions GET lORE DETAILS Exhaustive r Deaeriptiioln of r pel'SlO1ns r Drowned in Territory to I Be Obtja,tn • cd by Members of COl1p........rTeeth Often Afford Clue. Ad.dltional precautions are being taken by the pollee iOo securing de­ scriptions of persons w'ho are miss· ing or who have been drowned and their bodies not recove,·ed. Sueh de­ scrip-tions have always been taKen uy the members of the corps, but r Major Wood, the assistant commissioner of police, is making the work more ex­ haustive. In cases of persons drowned: in the rivers, especially the Yulmn, there is a 'big chance that their bodies will not be recovered. Sometimes, montns later, the body will be washed ashore, but in such an advanced stage of de­ composition as to be almost beyond all hDpe of identification. 'l 'oe clothes, which aff, ord, a good clue, rot away and as in the case of the re­ mains found on the island up the , .. u­ kon a few weeks ago, often only the skeleton and a few shreds of muscle remain. 'The teeth often afford r a clue to the identity of a body, and hereafter Luey will receive particular attention from the police. When a drowning occurs the friends of the victim will be asked for minute details as to his teeth, tlle markings on his body, if any, and any other peculiarities whjch would as­ sist in the identification of a corpse. From those who were last with the victim or were witnesses of the tra· gedy. details w!1l be asked as to clothing, etc. When such an accident occurs those who have an.y information 'which · might be of assistance later in identi­ fying the 'body should give it to the police at once. . 'Major Wood has had a list of all the people drowned in ihe Yulron · Lois year, whose bodies have not been re­ covered, compiled at his office. Six bodies remain to be found. .

R esidents, and those who have busi­ ness on Front street between 'Dugas and Turner streets, complain that the mud has made that portion 'of the city impassable.
