SO, years, has felt the lure of the lone trail since his boyhood and has been active more than (iO years in pushing the frontier line to tho outposts of civilization. He was born in a village in the north of Ireland on Christmas day, ISm, and sailed for America when a boy of 1() years, landing in New England "when the excitement was at its height following the news of the fabulous gold strikes in Calilo-rnla by the original '49-ers. He joined one of the caravans out of the middle west and lived amid, scenes that would furnish material for a dozen novels. He fought Indians on the prairies, then known as "the Great American Desert." ftlr. Gibbons has intimate acquaintance with the monotonous ld.\>or of the blanket and pan, employed in garnering the .glittering grains of gold from the sands of river bars and has left tho physical effects of the miner's pick and shovel and the slim fare of the "diggin's," He has shouldered his pack and plodded along until bone-weary, and by ceaseless vigilance-eluded the poisoned arrow, the murderous lomahawk and the night ambush with its unspeaka;ble horrors. He has shared the joys and sorrows of the ri-v-er boatman, and followed trails to camps of friendly and unfriendly tribes; in short, lived the lives of. pathfinder, miner, rancher, navigator, fur trader, soldier, homesteader n-nd a man about town. Mr.,Gibbons crossed the Istlimus of Panama in 1854,5"iding a mule-. Victoria, Vancouver, the Praser river and the Columbia were the points, from which he migrated- in search of gold. Ha met with successes and reverses. Trailing in the province of British Columbia was difficult on account of the dense forrei.ty and heavy imder-bri'sh. Hundreds of hostile Indians inhabiting these groves resented the intrusion of prospectors through their territories, and emphasiz-ed the fact by swift arrows and other messengers of death. Escaping these, he went to Portland, Ore., where he arrived without capital, or "dead broke," as he expressed it. Mr. Gibbo-ns turned to the first vacant position, and mastered its re-ciuirements as he has conquered every other situation he has since found. Plying 'back and forth as far as the jimction of the Snake and Columbia rive-rs, he soon fulfilled the requirements of a boatman, and was tlirown in contact with many new typsg of people and new conditions of life. One evening as the bells clnue-e-d and the chains clattered down on the decks and gang-planks, the members of the crew overheard the conversation of a group of excited miners 'who were leaving the boat, at a point somewhere in advance of their booked de.'jtinatlou. It was learned that Nez PerceJa-ne, an Indian woman, had revealed to Pierce the location of a rich gold field in central Idaho. He quickly joined-tho gold hunters and assisted in staking out such camps as Pierce, Elk City and Boise City. Among the men working together in these camps, who' were NEW MAP OE SOUTHEEN EUROPE Ther@ is no Scotch Whisky to equal Speciar Liqueur " J. M. DOUGLAS & CO .J Canadian Agents, Montreal mm If the claims of the allies are sustained, all that will be left of Turkey in Eurofict, is tiM little section, indicated around Conecantlnojile, drawn from every corner of the universe, 'was a brother of Rev. Dr. Mac-queen of Edmonton. Fifty years passed before Mr. Gibbons and Mr. .Mac-queen met and retold the stories of the ctunp fires and the gulch-es. The Bitter Hoot valley in Montana was the nevt scene of operations for Mr. Gibbons. Settlements throughout the western territories were few and tar between and oppoi'-tunities for money-saving sca-re; but the days 'were redolent with excitement. Life was cheap. It was no uncommon sigh't to see corpses dangling from trees along the trail, or to. meet an Indian sporting ten or twelve scalps at his belt and looking tor more. Leaving the line, Mr, Gibbons and party again crossed to Canada. Unluckily! through the 200 miles through the mountains, they lost their food and apimunition. Starving, footsore and weary, they pushed on till they reached Rocky Mountain House. They .| arrived at Fort Eidmonton in November, 1865, traveling with saddle and pack horses. Factors and trappers in the employ of the Hudson's Bay Company were helpful, but the policy of the company, then operating a trading post here, known as "the last house In the world," was not to encourage mining or other encroachm-ents upon its territory. However, M'r. Gibbons "panned" on an average of $25 worth of gold daily from the gravel of the Saskatchewan river. Later he became a fur trader, following that life In numerous districts until the disappearance of the buffalo from the plains. Mr. Gibbons was in the forefront with Steele's' Scouts in 18G9 and 1870 and participated in thd engagement at Frenchman's Butte..- He, retired as Indian agent In 1900 but still retains connection with the department. He next took up a homestead near what is now the city of Edmonton atid capl-_ tal of Alberta, selling part of It for $48,000. Mr. Gibbons and his wife, who were honored when the North West Territories became provinces, by being assigned to the first place in the proces-slon, are passing the evening of their lives In comfort, surrounded by members of their family and many warm friends.

Military and naval men are assld? uously propagating this gloomy view They are doing so with such persistency that large classes of the nation are now filled with the conviction that the fatherland lis at last on the threshold of a general conflict. � Some hotspurs fix the date of lios-tlimes for April at the latest. Others say that It 'will be postponed until summer as the kaiser has given his mlllta.nt Austrian ally,, ' Archduke Franz Ferdinand, to understand that' Germany will under no circumstances go to war until alter the celebration of Emperor �William's silver jubilee on-June 15, - Point to Many War Reasons �When the members-of the ivar party are asked why war is inevitable;, they say that it will come as the Irresistible climax of the period of strain under which Eurbpe has lived for the last five years. Russian and Austrian antagonisms, they explain, will be the immediate cause whdle' the unlerlying niotlve will be the long time, feud between Slavism and Germanism, which it is argued, must be fought ont sooner or later and may as well be settled now. Others- assert that war must come In order to decide the burning queS: tion of German or British supremacy in Europe. Still another theory, which is being advanced is that Austria-Hungary, having gone to such enormous expenses to place its military establishment on a war footing, now requires a war which will bring in some sort of return ior its great financial sacrifices. Convinced Strife is Inevitable �Whatever the reasons, real or imag-' ined. It is a fact that millions of sane;, seiislble Germans will enter the nftw year -convinced that war Is in sight. Many are Im^plred by a propheqy dating back to 1840. In that year Emperor �WiUllam I., then, the young crown prince of Prussia, visited St! Petersburg. For his entertainment an old Russian soothsayer read his future.- He was told that-three of the most important events in German hls-^ tory would take place respectively in 1871, 1888, and 1913.  In 1871 Germany defeated France and became an empire. The year 1888 was the three'kaisers^ year,, when the old. emperor^:died, only to-,be followed to the grave 100 days later by hlf. son,-iUmperoi'.
