What I Live For.
I live for those who love me
And those I know are true;
For hearen that smiles above me,
And earth so fair to view;
For all human ties that bind me,
For tbe work that is assigned me,
Tor the hopes that stiil remind me
Of the good that I can do.
I lire to learn their story,
- Who've suffered for my sake,
To emulate their glory,
And follow in their wake;
Bards, martyrs, patriots, sages,
The noble of all ages,
Whose deeds crown history's pages
'. And Time's great volume make.
I live to hail that season
' By gifted minds foretold, .
When man shall live by reason,
And not alone for gold
When man to man united,
Aud every wrong thing righted.
The whole world shall be lighted
With love and joy untold.
I live to hold communion
With all that's good and true,
. To feel there is a onion
In all we have to do
To profit by affliction,
Grow wiser from conviction,
Reap truth from contradiction,
And keep the right in view
I live for those who love me,
And those I kno are true,
For heaven that smiles above me
And earth so fair to view;
For the cause that lacks assistance,
For the wrongs that need resistance,
For the future in the distance,
And the good that I can do.

four pamed above. The fire originated
in the water closet on the seoond floor of
the building, -between two carriage
rooms. The scenes about the burning
building were horrifying as the smoke
rolled through -into the appartments
where the horses were kept. Scenting
danger, their cries of alarm were pitiful,
ami in their efforts to escape they
climbed into their mangers, kicked down
their Btalls and some managed to break
away but fell dead in the gangway. The
horses burned were the most valuable in
the barn and their value is estimated at
George Richards was the only one of
the four victims who was burned ex
ternally. His faee was horribly burned
and blackened and his hair was singed
from bis head. David Elmore managed
to get out into the hall before he was
overcome by the heat and smoke and as
the firemen were peering through the
smoke and heat searching for any spark
of fire that had escaped their notice, one
of them stumbled over the body, which
was the first notification the firemen had
that all had not escaped from the build
ing before the flames gained headway.
Penetrating further into the building the
firemen found the bodies of Bowen,
Bichard8 and Helbin, piled one upon the
other on the floor of their room.

company has asked the Minneapolis fire
department for an engine. If the air

coal, is liable to be destroyed. Some of
the largest elevators lie near the coal
docks, but it is believed they can be

complete grading outfit Teems and men
were at once sent out on tie surveyed
line and have already commenced work.
Fifty more car loads of men, wagons,

It is believed that they are in the employ
of the Great Northern, which recent!;
obtained possession of the Pacific Short
Line. Not long ago an agent went into
Boulder county and other territory and
redeemed all land property upon which
the taxes remained unpaid. Since the
redemption deeds were secured the mat
ters of the company have been kept very
quiet, but now it is ascertained that sur
veyors are out for the purpose of resnr
veying and keeping the route from being
jumped by any other line. The pro
ceedings are being watched by the Union
Pacific and the Burlington and Missouri,
ao it is apparent that neither of these
systems are doing the Voitu With the

a road will be extended westward from

competition in railroad building may be
looked for. '
East-Bound Bate. ' .
Chicago, Nov. 10. One result of the

Reeve attended the New York
meeting by invitation and con
sented again to become a member of
the committee provided it was reorgan
ized on a basis outlined by himself. The
conditions presented by him aro accepted
by the presidents and the agreement was
amended so as to give the various lines
more latitude in the matter of avoiding
competition and protecting their inter
ests. Indeed, the pledge which each
member of the committee must sign was
so modified that the roads are left free to
do pretty much as they please without
compromising the personal honor of their
representatives or committee.

gates as they have . never been enter.
tainea oerore. bne would, in tact, pay
all the expenses going and returning, if
need be, and a national convention there
would have one advantage a big one,
too, in my estimation it would be free
from outside influences entirely. Tbe
heelers and the henchmen ' and local
"powers in politics" would not be there.
It would be too far to go, and too expens
ive, and the convention could easily ex
press its own sentiments."

out of eighty-three ou the convict
steamer Enterprise, it is now known that
200 people lost their lives and 'iTtO were
severely wonnded. The greatest loss of
life occurred at Port Bluir and it is l

The f nry of the storm whs terrific,
scores of helpless native convicts ww e
crushed in their prison by falling beams
and toppling masonry. In one case l liu

In this emergency a gang of female
convicts joined hands ami formed a
chain extending into the water and de
spite the buffeting of the waves mid
wind rescued sis of the male convicts.
The females displayed much greater
courage throughout than the men.
Off the coast matters were equally bad,
every native craft without a single
exception caught off shore was either
swept ashore or dashed to pieces.' A
number of natives not included in tlif
foregoing estimate lost their lives in this

Rome, Nov. 10. Premier Rudini, in
his speech to the house of parliament,
announced the introduction of measure
for the reorganization of banks of isiu
by liberating capital.
Speaking of the recent Pantheon trou
bles and the sometimes threatening at
titude of the Vatican, he said:
"Its sphere of action is limited to the
exercise of spiritual powers net only by
a law, which cannot be lightly contra
vened, but by the almost unanimous con
sent of those who thought themselves
most religious. The country's ecclesias
tical policy has now become traditional.
The honor and strength of the kingdom
of Italy must be maintained. The deplor
able incidents produced by a few short
sighted persons will not make us deviate
from that policy. Not for so slight a mat
ter will we raise questions affecting the
constitution of the kingdom, nor will we
tamper with the immovable statutory
law or guarantees, tne wtsaom ana ex-
pediency of which hav been proved by
long experience. Italy will not fail in
the respect owing to the liberty on con
science and religions toleration.' It is r
onr boast and profession that pilgrim)
from the whole world may be confident
that the laws will protect them of com-

Premier Rndini's remarks concerning
the papacy have produced a bad imprea- '

A Blow to Turkey. I
CoNSTANTDtonx, Nov. 10. News
from Yemen is very discouraging to th
Turkish cause. The rebels have mad
two assaults on the capital of the prov
ince in which the Turkish troops r
surrounded, and the last time nearly
with success. The sultan is said to b
considering whether he will grant th
demands of the insurgents, ! which "
amount substantially to home rule by sv
native prince and native judges nnder
the suzerainty of the sultan, and a re
duction of the enormous burden of taxa
tion. From present indications, if th
sultan does not yield something, he may
lose everything in Arabia. , , , ,
