THE KOKNITG- OHEG03STIA3T, " THURSDAY, PEBRUAEY 28, 1895.
SNOW IN MOUNTAINS
BRITISH COLUMBIA'S DESTRrCTCVia
Rock of the Lament Size Are Torn
LriXMsv, Broken, to Atom and
Crashed to Powder.
Imagine If you can the very roughest bit
of nature you have ever seen, -writes C.
E. Perry in the Victoria Colonist, or take
a newspaper, crumple It into a ball and
placing it on a table suppose all its raised
parts to be peaks, and the hollows, ra
vines; picture the sharp edges as ridges
more or less timbered, the hollows bare,
Fmooth or steep, as the roof of the
steepest house you know of, and you have
an idea of the mountains and gorge of
Let us suppose we are standing oear
the summit of one of these ridges, en a
bright, sunny day in January. It has
ler. snowing continually for days and the
beautiful" lies in plenteous profusion
everywhere, six to eight feet deep in the
timbered ridges and any depth you like
in the ravines; the sun gets warmer; up
above you, r.ear the crest of the mountain,
little bits of crystals detach themselves
and go rolling down the slope; a tiny
crack forms at your feet and -widens
a ross the gulch; in an instant the whole
ynowy mats is in motion, and with a
hissing, rustling hound and an upheaval
along its edges, goes hurling down the
gorge. Faster and faster it glides; the air
Js tilled -with snowy spume; where you
stood it was a rivulet; a thousand feet
below it is a mad torrent; the noise in
creases as it gains momentum.
Rocks are torn loose, broken to atoms
or ground to powder, treea uprooted and
broken to pieces, logs smashed to splint
ers. At half a mile on its path it pre
sents a crest of 20 to 30 feet in height and
moxes faster than an express train; woe
betide any living thing in its way now.
Kothing made by man can stand before
it, the wind of its creation Is a hurricane,
a cloud of snow dust follows in its wake;
in a seething torrent It pours over rock
.nd precipice, and moving lesistlessly on
leaves in its track broken and crushed
fragments of rock and trees and the
smooth and polished grasses in the gorge.
The thunder dies; Is gone; and the ava
lanche is passed. Down at the foot of the
slope, a mile away, mountains of snow
tocsed up in hopeless chaos, a wild tangle
of rocks, earth, trees and logs remain to
jnark the slide, and often, alas! too often,
the bodies of brave men caught in its
mad rush He buried deep in its icy em
brace. AH around you can hear, day and night,
the distant muffled roar of passing ava
lanches; they come and go at all times
and at all hours, each year a new one
is created; for the older ones are well
known. They have claimed their blood
tribute; each has Its record of brave men
done to death. These avalanches are
everywhere; there Is not a wagon road or
a mountain trail that does not cross the
path of fceveral; on the Kaslo-Slocan road
to New Denver there are five or six:
on the winter road to S&ndon and Cody
Creek, four; all trails to the mines cross
and recross these moving destroyers; yet
all the season of greatest danger there is
more tralfic on these roads and trails than
on many highways in civilization. 5Iar
velous escapes are an every-day matter.
No one hesitates or delays on account of
the peril to be Incurred. Often, very
often, the snowsltde passes a few feet
from from the ore-laden pack team, but
Jiot always -without warning. In an in
stant men and animals are overwhelmed
nnd tossed like straws In the boll of seeth
ing snow; it is merciful that death is in
stantaneous. The force of the -wind created by one of
these larger slides Is well-nigh Incredible;
in the valley of the Illeclllewaet, on the
line of the Canadian Pacific, tree-tops are
cut off by the force of the wind on the
opposite side of the ravine through -which
the avalanche descends. The snow is
pressed Into th hardness of ice and liter
ally tears or grinds to powder everything
in its path. The many deplorable fatali
ties that have lately occurred in the
Slocan are partly due to the destruction
of the timber on the wooded slopes by the
fearful Arcs of last summer; the trees
holding up the snow and prevntlng sliding.
"We read of many brave and heroic acts
deeds of Derlng do; but surely the patient
courage that dally takes even chances
with Old Death on the slopes and in the
mountains of the Slocan deserves more
than a passing tribute.
WOMEN IN FRENCH ARMY
Cnntlnieren Iltue Miown Heroism
and Heevlicil Decorutloitn.
Courier des Etats Unls.
In the list of decorations given by the
ITrench minister of war on January 1
there appears the name of Mme. Cordier,
the cantlntere of the Seventy-second reg
iment of Infantry at Amiens. She re
ceived the military medal. Judged by her
lieroic acts she is well worthy of It. She
distinguished herself during the war of
1S70-71, and after the capltulutlon of Sedan
ishe saved several officers by hiding them
in her wagon. Before that she followed
her regiment to Africa and took part in
more than one expedition. Mme. Cordier
is one of the oldest cantlnleres. The oldest
of all is Mme. Vialard. She served 37
j ears, went through four campaigns, and
received two medals. She is a Lorraine
woman, and commenced her military ca
reer in the Crimea.
One of the most celebrated cantlnleres
"was Mother Joay. She was in the Crimean,
the Italian and the Mexican campaigns.
Generally she went on foot, and supported
all the fatigues of the march like a man.
She was the canlin'ere of the Third
Zouaves, and died at Blidah at the age of
74 years. She also received the military
Mme. Yallard, -whom we have mentioned
above, received the military medal in 1SG6.
IJefore her, Mme. Madeleine Trimoreau.
the cantinlere of the Second regiment of
Zouaves, received the same decoration for
licr conduct at the battle of Magenta. As
long as she had any cognac In her littla
cask she went from rank to rank reviving
me wounaeu ana exhausted soldiers, and
displaying contempt for the whittling bul
lets, -w inch sometimes tore her short dress.
V hen the last drop of cognac was given

dier and accompanied the Zouaves in their
bayonet charge without receiving
Since the month of August, 1S90, an
ordinance from the -war ministry has for-
InJden the distinctive costume of the can-
tlnieres, and, in addition to this, the min
ister decided that they should not appear
on parade with the troops, but should re
main with their wagons. Consequently -we
-were obliged to bid farewell to the pretty
trl-color uniform, the red and blue dress
and white apron so often made famous on
the field of battle, und -which more than
one millta-y painter has immortalised in
in old engravings the vlvandiercs are
represented as old wemen, with energetic
faces and a masculine air; and, as a matter
of fact, such ihey very often were. Ming
ling with the conscripts, speaking famil
iarly to the old soldiers, they acquired
masculine habit. But in some regiments.
and especially the cavalry regiments, the
tantinlere was the pride of the regiment,
and -we might cite one regiment of dra
goons, for example, in which there were
seven that had the reputation of being ex
tremely beautiful girls. Their green uni
form and white apron -were very becoming
t- them. In addition, they were excellent
horsewomen, for they were obliged to ride
en horseback when the squadrons to which
they were attached were called to arms.
The history of the vivandleres, if it were
witten. would contain more than one
ttr'Ui&sr chapter and many tknlnpg
pages. On more than one occasion they
distinguished themselves for their cour
age. Like the soldiers themselves, they
loved the number of their regiment, and
their wagon was often used as an am
bulance. Under Are they followed their
battalion, picking up the wounded and
quenching their thirst, and often consol
ing the dying.
As one can easily Imagine, under such
conditions the life of the cantinlere is not
without danger. Many of them were not
spared by the bullets. Mme. Rejan, the
cantinlere of the sacred Algerian Rifles.
received four wounds during the last
r ranco-German war, and another canti
nlere, Mme. Massey, was also wounded.
In regard to this latter, there is one act
of heroism that is worth mentioning. The
mother of a soldier in the battalion asked
her to watch over him. He was killed.
Mme, ilassey ran up to him, kissed him,
took up his rifle and cartridge box, and,
crying out, "You shall be revenged!"
rushed to the front rank in the place
of the soldier, and was the last to lire a
At Palestro on May 20. 1S30, a cantinlere
of the zouaves, Mme, Mosslni. had her
shoulder broken by a rifle ball. She had
a worthy colleague in the person of Mme.
Perrlr.e Cros, the cantinlere of the bat
talion of the Guard. She was not only
wounded at Palestro, but also at Magenta.
Mme. Rossini and Mme. Perrine Cros also
received the military medal. Mme. Ver
melin, of the Thirty-first regiment of the
line, was at Sedan, where, in the midst
of a cross-flre, aided by a member of the
ambulance corps, she picked up the
wounded and brought them to her wagon.
Mme. Bourget, the vivandiere of the
First regiment of Algerian Rifles, has
eight campaigns to her credit. Mme.
Pettitjean, the cantinlere of the One Hun
dred and Twenty-seventh battalion of the
National Guard at Paris, distinguished
herself by her bravery on the' plain of
Avron, and was decorated for bravery on
Mme. Bonnemere -was all through the
campaign or 1870-71 as cantinlere of the
Twenty-first of the line. She was in
trusted with the dispatch, but was cap
tured by a detachment of Prussians. The
moment she saw that escape was im
possible she swallowed the dispatch at
the risk of being shot. She not only wears
the military medal, but also the cross
of Medijldie, the Crimean medal, and the
Mme. Telman cantinlere of the Second
regiment of Zouaves at Reichshofen, lifted
up Colonel Detrie, who was badly wound
ed, and did so under the very lances of

Finally, we have Mme. Bondu, of the
Thirty-fourth regiment of the line, who
distinguished herself In the combats of
Patay and Coulmlers.
A few days after these battles, in which
she displayed the most remarkable cour
age, she gave birth to a son: " .That's a
chap that will never be afraid of the
rattle of artillery!"
There are also cantlnleres who are
decorated with the Legion of Honor,
among them Mme. Jarrethout, the can
tinlere of the Free Shooters of Chateau
dun. THE ALASKA BOUNDARY
Cuuailn'.s Claim to More Territory
The discussion of boundary questions is
generally exceedingly dry and most unin
viting. They are, nevertheless, often of
very great Importance. This province of
British Columbia, for Instance, may be
benefited to a considerable extent If the
boundary between It and Alaska Is cor
rectly defined according to the treaty of
1823 between Great Britain and Russia,
or It may be very materially injured if
the present boundary is by authority
It seems to be a mystery how the pres
ent line came to be drawn. It is certainly
not the one agreed upon by the conven
tion of 1SC5. It would appear that the
error has arisen from a mistake made in
the name of a channel. Someone appears
to have either Intentionally or inadvert
ently made a blunder, and others without
taking the trouble to inquire have fol
lowed in the track of the blunderer and
consequently the wrong boundary has
come to be generally accepted Instead of
the right one.
There is no dispute as to what Is the ex
treme southern point of the territory of
Alaska. It Is Cape Chacon, the south
ern extremity of the Prince of Wales isl
and. From that point northwest there is
a strait or channel which now goes by the
name of Behm channel. When the treaty
was drawn up this channel appears to
have had no name. On the mainland,
some 50 miles east of Cape Chacon, there
Is an inlet which now bears the name of
Portland canal. It is this canal that has
been substituted for the strait that is
situated between Prince of Wales Island
and the mainland. This accidental as we
take it calling a channel by a wrong
name has been prejudicial to British Co
lumbia, depriving it of a considerable ex
tent of territory, and, as Mr. Begg in
formed us yesterday, of about 100 miles
of seacoast, with Its harbors and the isl
ands adjacent thereto.
When the reader sees the text of the
convention he will, if he is unprejudiced,
decide that our theory of the change of
boundary is the correct one. Here it is:
"The line of demarcation between the
Possessions of the high contracting par
ties upon the coast of the continent and
the islands of America to the northwest
shall be drawn In the following manner:
"Commencing at the southernmost
point of the island called Prince of Wales
Island, which point lies in the parallel of
54 degrees 40 minutes north latitude, and
between the 131st and 133d degrees of west
longitude, meridian of Greenwich, the
said line shall extend to the north along
the channel as far as the point of the con
tinent where it strikes the 56th degree of
north latitude; from the last mentioned
point the line of demarcation shall follow
the summit of the mountains parallel to
the coast," etc.
It should be remembered that the
waters of the channel, which is not
named in the treaty, wash Cape Chacon,
and it runs north to l&tidude 56 and be
jond it. There is not a word said about
"east" In the definition, which would cer
tainly be the case if the line was to run
50 miles east before It came to the "chan
nel." Besides, what is now Portland
canal does not run as far north as lati
tude 56. From this it is evident that
Portland canal could not possibly be the
"channel" mentioned In the treaty.
It is not singular that the United" States
In Its correspondence assumes that the
original treaty contained the words
"Portland cnnal," but It Is most extraor
dinary that the Dominion government
in its directions to Its own officers made
the same assumption. No one seems to
have taken the trouble to examine the
original document in order to find out
how it defined tKe line of demarcation.
The Domlniaon officials seem to have fol
lowed sheeplike In the track of the United
States diplomatists. Luckily their stupid
ly or lazily copying the blunder of the
public servants of the United States did
not legalise what js manifestly an error.
It is not too late to correct the mistake,
that has been made. The government of
British Columbia has fortunately been
wide awake In this matter of the Alaska
boundary line. It contends that the as
sumption that he words "Portland canal"
are in the original treaty or convention
Is entirely erroneous and without author
ity to sustain it. A parliamentary paper
before us says this, and adds "that from
all the Information that government can
obtain, it has reason to believe that those
words will not be found in the original,
or, if there, the term has bees misapplied."
We trust that the government will not
let this matter drop, but will keep It con
tinually before the Dominion and the Im
perial governments until the proper
measures are taken to establish the line
of demarcation as defined in the conven
tion of JS-Z.
PLAYED A BOLD GAME
UX1QUE SWINDLE OP MAST HUMBLE
llorr a Gang; of Italian Rascals
Reaped a Harvest by Person
ating: the Pope.
For months past the Vatican has been
the victim of a widely ramifying conspir
acy involving nothing less than the iden
tity of, the sovereign pontiff himself. A
syndicate of Italian swindlers has been
reaping a golden harvest from the credu
lity of the Catholic faithful of humble sta
tion In Italy, Sicily, France, Ireland and
the United States, says a correspondent of
the Philadelphia Press.
It is represented to pious Catholics in
those countries that the man now seated
in the chair of St. Peter is not Pope Leo
XIII at all, but an impostor who resem
bles him so closely in voice, ways and per
sonal appearance as to deceive even Cardi
nal Peccl, the pontiffs brother. This Im
postor, It is further alleged, was intro
duced Into the Vatican gardens about
three years ago, and, aided by fellow con
spirators, he made his way to the pope's
private apartments, when the vicar of
Christ on earth was sleeping. The pon
tiff was rendered unconscious by the fumes
of chloroform and transported to a cell
in the vaults of the Vatican where he
languishes to this day, and his enemy ex
ercises all the authority of the rightful
bishop of Rome.
The man now claiming to be Leo XIII
is represented to be Giovanni Plomblno,
the son of a once well-known Roman
vaudeville actress. His accomplices are
stated to hold him absolutely in their
power by threats of exposure, and to be
systematicallyplunderlng the Vatican with
Preposterous as this tale may appear In
its bold outlines, the swindlers have been
able to vouch for it with much circum
stantial detail. They have even gone to
the length of putting a pamphlet Into cir
culation, setting forth at length the man
ner in which the plot was consummated.
The date on which the real Leo was Im
prisoned is given as June 23, 1891, and It is
declared that two jailers guard him night
and day, and that the fake Leo visits him,
occasionally. Pictures and diagrams of
the Vatican grounds are given and the
adaptability of the fake pope to his neces
sarily difficult position Is ascribed to his
cunning and his training. He was, as is
declared, a theological student in Rome
In tha early 'GOs, but Is today but 57. Not
withstanding a few changes in his personal
appearance enables him to palm himself
off as a man past 80.
The principal swindler in this rather
novel imposition Is variously known as
Guelielmo Tocassi, Angelo Donatello or
Alassandro Vlttonia, a former maid in
the employ of the Marchesa Colonna, and
Glnlio Fraschetti, who once served a term
of imprisonment for brigandage in Sicily.
Two of the other accomplices are now in
the city prison In Rome, awaiting trial on
a charge of swindling Italian peasants out
of large sums. For some mysterious rea
son, the Italian government preserves an
unfathomable reticence regarding this
whole affair, and the charge Is made In
Vatican circles that the authorities are
secretly pleased at the prevailing credence.
Be this as it may, the swindlers are still
at work and It Is the temporary check ex
perienced by them in Europe that caused
them to transfer their operations to this
The large Italian population of the
United States is mostly Catholic. The
Italians being, as a rule, very migratory
and apt to return at intervals to their own
country, they were speedily "worked" by
the syndicate, which sent one of Its most
skilled operators to this country and he is
believed to have netted large sums by his
skill at imposture.
The man's name Is indifferently Gio
vanni Traschettl or Cesare Cascar
etto. He appears to be quite expert in de
ceit. He represents that a considerable
clerical party in Italy has become ac
quainted with the Imposture of the fake
Leo, and that it is designed to rescue the
real pope from his living tomb, place him
back on the papal throne and deal with
the impostor now seated there as he de
serves. All this it is designed to accom
plish without scandal. The faithful may
assist in this restoration of the deposed
vicar of Christ by turning over the usual
contribution of Peter's pence to the rep
resentative of the syndicate.
In many cases the swindler has been
successful. Indeed, a very serious de
pletion in the amount contributed to the
Peter's pence has already been noted at
the Vatican. The Italian and French
populations have been far behind hand
and the syndicate has reaped a vast re
ward from this diversion of the revenue
of the holy see. The swindlers made some
effort to extend their operations to Ire
land, but with indifferent success.
Such agents as have come here have
not remained very long. They have made
periodical trips at intervals whenever the
United States seemed to afford an avail
able field. But in every great seaport
and in all the large coast cities the cred
ulous foreigner" has fallen an easy vic
tim to the wiles of the advocate of the
In carrying out the scheme of impo
sition the impostors have been materially
aided by the consummate art of Vittoria
Blanchett. Thi3 woman Is now about SO
years old, described as tall, dark and slen
der, and endowed with singular powers
of persuasion. She represents In glowing
terms the glorious mission of herself and
her co-workers and sets forth the spir
itual treasures which the church will be
stow upon all who undertake to aid the
Her language imparts a new significance
to the melancholy Interest attaching to
the prisoner of the Vatican. She travels
in luxurious style, dresses superbly and
appears to be quite well supplied with
ready funds. It is estimated that she has
collected tens of thousands of dollars
In the past two years as a result solely of
the seductive sorcery of her smile. She is
stated positively to be in this country.
That our Italian population has been
swindled by this woman many Catholic
clergymen know too well.
A very delicate point of law rises In
connection with the swindle. The mem
bers of the syndicate assert positively
that they are truthfully representing the
facts that the genuine Leo is in reality
a prisoner and that a counterfeit Leo sits
upon the papal throne. To refute this
charge, the pope himself, as well as his
immediate entourage, would be obliged to
testify ii an Italian court. Even the
prisoners now under arrest for participa
tion in the frauds allege that they are
acting in perfect good faith.
Now, of course, the papal court refuses
all recognition of the Italian government
and will not under any circumstances rec
ognize an Italian court. This fact pre
sents a difficulty. How are the authori
ties to deal with the swindlers? They will
not assume the responsibility of proclaim
ing the swindlers falsifiers, as they main
tain that after all the Vatican Is the in
jured party, and should testify for the
What Leo himself thinks of the prepos
terous business no one knows. Some of
the cardinals are incensed, others amused.
It is said that the swindlers have In their
service a former employe of the Vatican
gardens, a fact which accounts for the
truly surprising wealth of detail with
which the frauds maintain their story.
They even possess diagrams of the Vati
can dungeons and gardens, and elabor
ately outline the cell in which the real
Leo lies a prisoner.
