Sharon, Mass., August 21.���A frightful rear end collision occurred iu the
Sharon station of tho New Yi>rk, New
Haven & Hartford Railway at 7:30
o'clock tonight, when an express train,
which was running as a second -section
of a long traiu, crashed into tho llrst
section, composed of local cars. As a
result six persons wero killed and
twenty-six seriously injured. The injured wore nearly all removed to Boston on a special train, which was met
by ambulances and surgeons. The

The withdrawal of the (7P.K. steamers Athabasca and Tartar from th
Vanoouver-Wrangel route, coupled
with the tlelng tip of some half dozen
river steamers at tho month of the
Stickeen gives a death blow to the much
talked of Teslin lako route to the Yukon. Meanwhile tho Chilkoot i'ass
route is doing business at tlio old stand
and Dawson City can now be reached*
within lu days from oitber Vancouver
or Victoria.' The Alaskan bubble has
burst iu so far as it applies to the rush
of pilgrims to theso-northern solitudes.
The much talked of $25,000,000 output

Progress on Various Properties n
thc Kuotenav.s'.
At tho head of Kootonay l.ake, 20
tuileB north of Kaslo, and embracing a
largo country, Is what is known as the
Lardo-Duncan. From tlio head of
Kootonay lako, going north a distance
of 12 miles into Howser lake, is the
Duncan river. Howser lake Is 10 miles
In length and for a f irthor distanco of
12 miles the Upper Duncan Is navigable for light draft steamers. The
government has er.porded $10,000 In
the construction of trails from the
1 head of navigation up the Lardo and
also a side trail from the Duncan to
where Hail-creek is met, up Hall creek
to Trout lake. This opens up a rich
��� seotlon which will contribute largely
to tho business of Kaslo.
s Andy .Johnson, this weok, received
" -word from his brothers of a very encouraging nature about thoir claims on
the second branch of the west fork of
the Duncan river.    They have  done
work on all their 10 claims and finished
the yearly assessment on the Johnston.
They expect finish up all work In 10
days. They find the ore in their claims
is the same as that in the Lade Bros.'
group and alongside Westfall's.
Westfall has made big strikes. He
has two feet of clean ore that assays
from $104 to 1,294.40.
Tho Lade Bros.' have made another
big strike, and find free gold every
place they put a shot in on all their
five claims and prospects are that the
assayB will run up high.
We understand that"* a government
enginoor is expected daily to inspect
the trail recently made by J. McKay
Anderson at Jubilee point.
L. F. Holtz and A. S. Williamson
have sold their two-third interest in
the Fidolity  to   Scott  McDonald   for
$10,000. *
:Vt a meeting of the Leviathan Mining Co. held on Saturday it was decided
to proceed with the work as now outlined. Some surface assays on an adjoining claim to this havo recently
gono as ltigh as $15.
Since July 1st, 1898, ore shipments
over the C. P. R. has been  as follows:
Idaho....  388 tons
Alamo  200   "
Cumberland    55   "
Crawford Creek.
Crawford creek and its branches are
alive with men doing'assessment work.
On Canon creek alone there are about
50 men working. J
The Humboldt, on Crawford creek,
has 14 men at work. This mine Is
showing up well and tho owners have
100 tons of high grade ore.on the. dump.
They are working foe q- crown . grant
Tho Princess group is one of the
host group of claims ou Sawyer creek,
a tributary of the Crawford. This
jjfroup comprises the Ludington, Black
Prince, Princess, Paduel, Flossy and
two others. The Black Princo, owned
by A. O. Mooers and J. W. Blanchard,
is an A 1 proposition showing gold, silver and copper. Thore is only a small
foreo of men working on it at present
but an increaso is expected soon. Mr.
Mooers showed us a specimen and it
does, without doubt, make an excellent
showing in copper, and he says they
have six feet of pay ore In sight. There
has been about $5,000~w"orth of work
done on the group so far.
The Climax group, alongside the
Princess, consists of the Florence, Climax, Verona and two othors, all of
whick aro showing big in gold, silver
and copper.
The Silver Hill, another group near
the Black Prince, is a bonanza for Its
owner*. An assay made ta short timo
ago showed 800 oz. silver, 16 por cont.
copper and $27 in gold. There are 10
men taking out ore.
The government appropriated large
sums of money for trails on Crawford
creek, but instead of Crawford croek
boing benefitted Hoker creek got it, to
tho benefit of the few against a large
majority, and there iH great discontent
among the miners thereby.
Woodbury Creek..
Frank Heap is working on the Pon-
tlac, which has a foot of solid ore in
sight. The ore is galena and carbonates. On the other side of the creek
aro two claims owned by Frank McGraw, In some places of which soveu
feet of oro have beon exposed tapering
to 16 Inches in others. An assay shows
120 oz. silver and $15 gold, These
properties are about 9 miles up the
croek, 7 of which there is a good pack

from Whitewater, thus giving the C.
P. R. practically a monopoly of the
trade of both the KootenayB.. The C.
P. R. are also reaching out after the
Boundary trade, bujs are very apt to
again run up against Messrs Heinze and
Corbin, who, we believe, are by no
means disinterested in that promising
mining and agricultural country.
J. H. Gray, engineer, K. & S. Ry.,
assisted by Messrs.Heyland & Stephenson, with a large party of men,
left Tuesday for the Duncan. It is understood they go on behalf of the
Kootenay Railway and Navigation Co.,
Limited, to locate a line from
the foot of Howser lake to the Upper
Duncan rivor as fur as Hall
croek. This will open up that country
as it needs to be and will give an enormous stimulant to all the mines in the
vicinity. The road will act as a feeder
to the new company so that ere long
we may expect a regular service between the upper waters of tho Duncan
and Kaslo aud also between Kaslo aud
and the districts to the south,

Hon. G. K. router on Ills rounds.
Calgary,N.W.T.,August 23.���A large
audience, among whom wero many
ladies, greeted Hon. G. E. Foster last
night at the opera house. Mr. Foster
was the last speaker and after explaining the principles of parliamentary
government ho proceeded to arraign
the Laurier ministry for its failure to
fulfill its ante-election promises. He
prophesied its overturn at tno next
election. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, though
pure himself, could not control his
team of Tarte and Sifton and thoir disgraceful acts.
Hon. Mr. Foster, without preamble,
said the Conservatives had a definite
policy, a national policy and separate
seho.ils for Manitoba. The Liberals
had promised all men all things and
although the Conservatives were defeated at the polls they were defeated
with a good conscience. Tho public
debt had increased $3,500,000 a year
since last election. Four million dollars moro were taken out of the people
as revenue this past yoar than during
the last five years of Conservative ad
ministration. During tho last year of
tho Conservative government $30,000,-
000 of capital account were spent., The
Laurier government asks $48,000,000
for this year.
Consolidation of the K. A S. and I. N. Co.
The prospectus of the Kootenay
Railway and Navigation Co., Limited,
is belore us. The company has
been formed to consolidate into
one system the Kaslo & Slocan Railway and the International Navigation
and Trading Co., Limited, and to connect these with the Great Northern
and Northern Pacific roads by a line
owned and controlled by the company.
The capital Is ��500,000 and the present
issue consists of 5 per cent, debentures
to the amount of ��480,000. The chairman of the new company is H. W". Foster, M. P., while the other directors
aro Frederick Lubbock, a director of
the Bank of British North America;
A. C. Mitohell Innes, director of the
British Columbia Electric Ry.; and
George Alexander, president of the-In-
ternational Navigation and Trading
Company. The now company secures
the undertaking of the Bedlington &
Nelson railroad and the whole of tho
undertaking of tlio proposed American
company now being formed to construct
a railroad from the international
boundary to Bonner's Ferry, at wnich
point It will connect with tho Great
Northern and ludirectly with the N. P.
R. at Sand Point, Idaho.
A General Idea of What the C. P. If.
Will Do.
The proposed Lardeau railway will,
in all probability lead from Arrowhead
along the northern shore of the arm to
Thompson's Landing, thence to Trout
Lake City with a spur to Ferguson^ud
along the western shore of Trout lako
to a townslte known as Dawson, situated on Lardeau creek, at a point
where Healey and Tenderfoot creeks
empty Into it, thonce through the valley of the Lardo creek to the head of
Kootenay lake. From this point and
Kaslo the C. P. R. will run barges, as
Is now done on tho Arrow lakes, between Arrowhead, Nakusp and Robson
to connect the terminus of the Crow's
Nest with their Lardeau branch and
the main line here, and also their
Slooan branch whloh, by tha time tha
II. F. Green, M.P. P., is at the coast.

The Soda Spring editor almost persuades us that there should be an archaeological society formed in Kaslo by
the Stress he lays on the antiquity of
the place. Who knows but what evidence in the vicinity of Kaslo's "Spa"
may yet be found to prove that Julius
Caesar once drank these waters?
The vegetarian cause never had
greater support than that given by tho
hog ranch on the main road west of tho
city about two miles. What was once
a charming walk has been completely
spoiled by the stench that arises within
a radius of a mile. It must come home
very forcibly to tlie pork eater aflbt*
witnessing the above, what filth he
puts within him for "as an animal
eateth so is if' and its tissues are pol-
uted with the poisonous food it absorbs,
so that by partaking of this food man.
poisons his whole system. The appear-
anco and taste being mere delusions in
precisely the same way that beautifully
clear water may contain   the deadliest

This reminds one of that innocent

to the oyster. If anything this fish

enough to makeone's hair stand on end
to think that this Is classed as "food

On the question of antiquity it is
curious to note that no remains have
boen found, going to prove in any way,
that thero have ever been races existing in prehistoric times in British Columbia or the Northwest Territories.
I heard yarns from halfbreeds in 1885
at Lac la Biche, north of Edmonton,
about ruins of buildings in the far
north, but nothing to support the statement. It is conceded that the peoples
of the greater Northwest America are
of a low evolutionary plane and consequently have only a nomadic past.

Some gentleman has written four

are knit together in a bond of brotherhood, the true meaning of which Is

How   the   Aeolilen'   Owurred.
The two trains wliich were in the collision were usually combined into one
long train, but as tlie traffic today was
so heavy il wus divided, the first section
running us a local accommodation, while
the second, which started from Mansfield
15 minutes later than the lirst, ran us an
express. The local train due at Sharon
at 7:02 wus l.'i minutes lute, lt left Muns-
lit'lil on time, making two ttopt, and had
lost lit minutes between Mansfield and
.Sharon, lt was due iu Canton Junction,
the next station beyond Sharon, two minutes ahead of the express train, which
should have passed it there. Sharon is
situated on a curve and bolh the outward
nml inward tracks are protected by electric block signals. After the accident
it was thought the block signals protecting the inward track were set at danger,
showing, as it was intended, thut time
was a train in the station.
There was no warning given by the
coiuluilor of the Mansfield local to show
the track was not clear at the station,
uml it, was not until iie was within 3IMJ
feel of the station that the engineer of
the express noticed anything wrong. He
immediately set all brakes and whistled
a warning, but it wus loo late to stop
the express. It crashed into the rear
cur, splitting it asunder and completely
demolishing it wilh the exception of tlie
roof. Its speed waa not slackened until
���the engine hnd penetrated fully live feet
into the rear of the second car. The escaping sleam entered tlio cur and badly
scalded a number of the occupants. The
roof of the last cur was'forced on top
of the engine of tlie express and remained there, us the only portion of tlie car

Engineer Qetchell and Fireman Holmes
of the express train both jumped. Oct-
chell was out und bruised about the head.
He Stated after the accident that he left
Miinslitlil promptly on time, and there
was no incident until he was within 400
feet of the Msusfleld train. Then he saw
the red lights of thut train und shut off
steam. Meanwhile iie had whistled fur
brakes und used every effort to stop bis
Every one of the killed and injured was
on tlio Mansfield local, and the only explanation of tho fact that the number of fatalities is not lurger is that the
passengers were all in the forward end
of the cur in the act of alighting -it
the slat ion.
There were about 30 people in the last
car, and most of then, at the time of the
accident were either upon the front platform or standing by the door.
Mnry Fitzpatrick, 10 years old, was taken from the wreck unconscious and died
just as the special train bearing the injured started for Boston. Twenty-one of
the injured were taken on this train and
four others whose numfra they refuse to
disclose remained in Sharon.
The scene about the little station , nt
Sharon was a terriblcone. A large corps
of surgeons and two "undertakers arrived
soon after the accident and immediately set to work to relieve the suffering and
care for the bodies of the dead.
There were few lights about that porr
tion of the track where the. accident occurred and the surgeons were compelled
to do their work in almost total darkness.

Chicago, Aug. 22.���A Washington dispatch to the Inter Ocean says:
President McKinley und the members
of his cabinet are unanimous in the determination that one of the first official acts
toward bringing about, a restoration of
peace and order in Cuba Shall be the dis-
bandn.ent of the Cuban Snuy. As there
is no longer a Spanish army in the field
in Cuba, there is no longer any reason for
tlie existence of the Cuban army, and it
is therefore to be regularly mustered out
of service. Tlie government has no idea,
however, of adopting tlie quixotic idea of
paying the Cuban soldiers for their services during the war or assuming the responsibility for their payment. If the
idea were not in itself altogether a fanciful one, tliere are at least three good reasons why, in the opinion of the president,
it would not be wise to adopt it:
1. The United States would not under
any circumstances be justified iu paying
a debt it does not owe.
2. Tliere is no appropriation out of
which such payment could bo made, and
it would be necessary for congress to lirst
appropriate the money.
3. To place such a large .sum of money
ns would be required in the hands of the
destitute and impoverished rank, and file
of the insurgent army would result in
their utter demoralization and be responsible tor till sorts of disorders.
Plnii for 1'a*. iitcnt
The president has, however, a plan in
mind by which the insurgent army can
be disbanded without the necessity of
turning the soldiers adrift with no sort of
recognition of their services. The plan
contemplates the grunting of an honorable discharge to each soldier, accompanied by a certificate of service and ,i
promissory Obligation, signed by tlie Cuban general in chief, to be made good out
of the public resources when the Cubans
shall hnve established the stable government which the United States lias pledged
itself to help bring into existence.
in addition to thus providing for the
soldiers of the Cuban army, the plan under consideration by the president contemplates the mustering into the United
States volunteer army of a large number
of Cuban soldiers who are American citizens. Their services could be used to good
advantage as members of thc various immune regiments to lie maintained on garrison duty in Cuba.
The plan above outlined has the approval of some of the highest officere of
tl.e Culm., army, mid is likely to be put
into operation very soon.

The camping out days have come and
the person who can make a good fire under disadvantages has a proud position
and is likely to be the star of the camp.
There is a widespread idea that it takes
deep occult lore to build a good camp
fire in the rain, knowledge that must be
learned- from gypsies or Indians. Gypsies aud Indians know how to do it, but
there is nothing mysterious in the accomplishment. Auy one eun learn it To
begin with, you must learn to keep your
matches dry���and before that, to be sure
you have matches. Leather match cases
are likely to let the matches get damp;
carry a metal one. Then always make a
habit of having some old newspaper in
your best protected pocket. You can
get on without it, hut it is good woodcraft to do things the easiest way, and
the pn per mukes ({rebuilding easy. Select a pluce for the fire where it won't set
either timber or tents ablaze.
Clear the ground around it of Inflammable trash; a few stones roughly piled
up between it and the wind will often
save more time than it takes to gather
and place them.
If everything is soaking look for a
fallen tree or an old stump; shave off the
surface at one spot and then you can get
good dry splinters from the old wood beneath; often a little "grubbing" in the
stump or underneath the log will bring
forth a handful of good dry wood without any use of tlie knife. Gather dead
twigs from the trees, not from the
ground; build your pile with care; hurry
makes worry here and it is to be hoped
you wear a broad hat so that you can
protect the infant blaze from untimely
breezes with it.

At the Manila Battle the Astor Battery Led���Utah Took Part���Colo-
ratio anil California Troops Were
In the Front ot the Conflict.
Tlie hardest fighting at the capture of
Manila was done by the Astor battery,
whieh led the advance. Brigadier General McArthur, commanding the brigade
complimented the men in the highest
terms right in the midst of thc battle,
for their valor and success.
The Astor battery led the column, supported by the Minnesota volunteers snd
the Twenty-third regiment. The Utah
battery's guns were too heavy to move
through the swamps. The march was
along the l'asay road on the right of the
river Pasig, where the Meet could give
no assistance. At the junction with the
eingali.il road, the vanguard came without warning on a strong Spanish entrenchment. Suddenly the enemy rained
a deadly lire upon the Americans, killing
two men of the Astor battery, First Sergeant Holmes and Second Sergeant Cre-
mius, nnd one Minnesota man, Private
Patterson, at the same time wounding a
score of others. Sergeant Cremins, after
he was shot, started to his gun, tired it
and then the next moment fell dead beside the piece.
The Astor battery was forced to fall
back from the murderous fire, temporarily
leaving two guns. But the reserve under
Colonel Ovcnshine came up promptly and
with their support the Asters charged thc
enemy with only revolvers for weapons,
quickly regained their guns and put them
into action again with increased vigor.
Thc Spaniards were then shortly put to
flight. The following is the list of casualties in the Astor battery.
M. K. Holmes, first sergeant; D. Cremins, second sergeant; P. 11. .Sillman, sergeant; H. Vanhorne, C. Baker, 0. Dunne.
T. J. Huyden, W. H. Seymour, C. 17 Yan-
pelt, privates.
Private Dunn's wound is serious. The
other wounded men will get well. The
losses were pretty evenly divided between
the two brigades.
The following are thc names of the
killed and wounded soldiers outside of
the Astor battery.
Samuel Howell, Fourteenth regiment;
William Lewis, Nebraska volunteers;
Robert MeCunn, Fourteenth regulars; Edward O'Neill, California volunteers; A. P.
Patterson, private Minnesota, volunteers;
  Phoenix, private Colorado volunteers; August Thollen, private Twenty-
third  infantry.

Minnesota volunteers; McC'aim, private Twenty-third regulars; Private
Moore, Minnesota volunteers; Private
Morgan, Twenty-third regulars; Private
Newman, Twenty-third regulars; Private
Parker, Twenty-third regulars; Private
Tet/.off, Minnesota volunteers.
Thc Spanish loss is estimated at not less
than 21 Kl, including both the killed and
wounded, uud in the neighborhood of 8000
captured. Vast stores of military and
naval supplies were seized.
The casualties on the American    side
were  confined   to  the  land  side.  Not a'
man on the lleet was injured.
Through four miles ut entrenchments,
extending for two miles, the enemy was
driven in a panic to the walled portion of
Manila. Then the Spaniards surrendered.
As tho Stars and Stripes were raised over
the official residence of tlie governor, Cup-
tain General Juudeuez burst into tears
and his suite hid their faces in their
ill> n>isiii Opened Fire.'
At 0:30 a. m., the Olympia opened fire
with her starboard five-inch guns at a
mnge of 4000 yards. The troops cheered
and waved their huts. Thc first shots fell
short, but again uml again the guns
run nil and the projectiles fell closer and
closer to the enemy's stronghold. Tho
Haleigh and Petrel, covered with national
colors, tried five-inch and six- inch guns
at 3500 yards.
Shell after shell hurst In the fort and
drove the Spaniards panic-stricken toward
Manila. Every shot was marked hy debris
hurled high iu the air. Soon the enemy
deserted the trenches in front of General
Green but ran oil to the right into the
bamboo swamps. Two*shots from the battery in the magazine was the only reply
given to the fleet's fire. Both were 300
yards short The gunboat Callao and the
launch Barcelo advanced within 1000
yards nnd began sending a deadly hail
from rapid-fire and machine guns.
The Troop* Advance.
By this time the fortress was deserted
and the fleet was signaled to cease firing.
Then orders to advance were given. The
Colorado troops formed in column with
their flag flung to the breeze and dashed
into Rio Cingalon, wading waist deep.'
The Californians followed. The enemy's^
Mausers began to crack in the 'bush in
front on the left but the shooting was
wild. The Colorado men ran up to tho
fort and took  possession.
Private Phoenix climbed to the ram
parts and pulled down the Spanish flag
and as he was raising the American standard he was shot dead. Thereupon Sergeant Richard G. Holmes seized the flag
and- ran it up on the pole.
The Coloradoans and Eighteenth infantry drove the Spanish through tlie streets
of Malate. Tlie enemy threw away guns
and ammunition in their flight. Their
trenches were filled with Mauser cartridges. The troops followed them, capturing the Luneta battery and chasing the
enemy into the walled city.
General Green passed around the walled
city and took Binondo on the north side
of the Pasig river, where he cstahlished
his headquarters.
McArthur'! Hot Fight.
Meanwhile, General McArthur's brigade
over on tlie right wing, was having the
severest kind of fighting. Two guns of
the Utah battery opened on blockhouse
No. 14 and soon knocked it into splinters.
Then the troops advanced towards the
city. The Astor battery was in the lead,
and, as previously described, had the hottest fighting of the day at the junction of
the Cingalon road.
The Spanish soon retreated and McArthur entered the city and established
headquarters in Malate. The insurgents
followed up thc advance of our troops.
An attempt was made to keep them out
of the oity, but it was found impossible.
Thousands entered in companies, ' *ok
possession of empty houses and began pillaging. Malate and Ermita, the fashionable residence districts, were deserted. The.
troops scattered aud stopped the insurgents pillaging as fast as possible, but
complaints continue to come in.

The latest advlcos from Victoria
would seem to indicate that Mr. Semlin
hae formed his Cabinet und that the
new Ministers, having familiarized |
themselves with the legislative machinery, bave settled down to business,
The portfolio of mines has gone to Mr.
IIline: while wn muy regret that our
member, R. F. Green, did not yet it,
we are better pleased that it should
havo gone to Mr. Hume than Mr. Martin; there is moro in common (between
tbe interests of Kelson and Sloean rid-
in;.'- than between either and Unit of
Rossland, so that Mr. Hume will be
benefitting us when be is looking more
minutely nfter the interests of his own
riding, wlii'i'i-iis. Mr. Martin, to say
ilu- least) Is unfamiliar with the peculiar state nl affairs in the Slocan and
we should, no doubt, have suffered at
his bunds.
It Is to the point now to take a retrospect of affairs political generally and
to glance rapidly ovor what we havo
good ri'iisoii to anticipate at tbe bands
of the Semlin administration. Naturally our flrsl wants ure of a local nature
and Mr. Green, being largely Inter*
ssted here, will see tbat the appropriation to be made for all public works in
this riding is adequate. Wo must
have two tilings done properly and at
ones'. I'm-y are the wagon road up the
South Pork and snob expenditure on
the Lardo und Dunoan rivers as may
be doomed necessary for development
in tbat district, Jusl what form thoy
should take will be a matter we think
can be sol tied by tho Lardo-Duncan
association. No ono man should havo
the exclusive say as to where public
moneys aro to be expended. Doubtless
between this and noxt season the
gentlemen who make up tbe association will have pretty well defined ideas
on tbe question. ��%
Coming to minor matters, something
should be dono forthwith in the matter
of County Court so that at tho completion of the new city hall a resident
clerk of tho court can tnke charge end
arrangement*! mado for regular sit.ln_'s
iothati litigant*! will be iparad the
trouble and expense of going to Nolson.
Tho lend duty question will no doubt
obtain tbe "moral support" of the
now government, which eun help r$vj
(-really any efforts that can bs mid*
with the powers that bn at- Ottawa,
This is * vital matter to tbo Slooan
and should bo energetically pushed.
A question that affects the Province
generally but more particularly tlie
miniDg district is the abolition of tho
miner's tax. The loss that will accrue
to the government by reason of this
can be made good by raising the assess
ment valuo of the IJunsraulr estates to
their proper figure aud by taking such
steps as wlll ensure to thp Provincial
till a good round annual contribution
from this and kindred corporations
which have been enjoying good times
auu fn!toning at the expense of the
Th" i-ftof.
olisbod and any loss of revenue thereby
should be made good by a direct t.nx on
iu HOuip&n.s. . It .s uu rubbish to say
tbat etich a course will drive them
away. Never fear, they are getting
too high rates horo and it iB not possible to make irom 12 to 16 per cent, in
other provinces, and this is about what
the building and loan companies have
to mako to be able to pay the dividends
thoy promise.
There are of course several other
matters of prominence which the present Government has promised to attend
to, noticeably the railroad question.
Wo want all tho competition we can
get. Tlio question of re-distribution
ofseatswill.no doubt.be attended to
in due course and thoso dear little
pocket boroughs on tho island will
havo hiul their day and ceased to be.
Altogether there is a large amount
of useful business in Store for thc new
assembly whon its meets in January,
and there seems no reason to doubt
that, the present Government will mako
good its pledges to the people, namely,
that it shall be run in the Interests of
tbo whole Province ami not for the
Island of Vancouver and a few up

Now tbat tbo war is over it is a pleasant duty to extend onr congratulation;;
to our cousins aerose thc border, not so
much for tho victory tbey havo
achieved, as that, was a foregone conclusion, nor for tho heroism displayed
on all sides, for that was to be expected,
but more particularly for the dignified
and statesman-like manner tbe whole
campaign has been directed. Prom
the President down everything has
been done on a far higher plane than
wc bave been accustomed to find in
matters publio With tho American people. Of necessity, almost, there bave
been tlio usual 'bungling incidental to
transportation, etc., of u hurried war,
but hardly moro so than wc would have
expected with a nation as unprepared
as thoy were at tho outbreak of hostil-
ities. None of those, however, mar in
any way thc credit that will accrue to
the powers tbat be that directed the
movement of tho army and navy as
well as the diplomatic incidentals now
going on, leading ix) the final signing
of peaco. Nor are the people at tbe
present moment, flushed as tbey are
with success, calculating the profit and
loss account of the campaign so much
as the general position of affairs within
tbe country. They are busy discussing
not so muob what they will get out of
Cuba, Puerto Rico and the Philippines
as wbother It would be politic to adopt
Imperialism and expand their already
enormous territory. Opinions are dlv.
Idod en this point and will, no doubt,
be brought Into party Hues. To us Imperialism would seem Inconsistent with
tho much talked of Monroe doctrine.
At tho time of tho Votizuola dispute,
nnd to any who have studied the Internal pqhUIou of affairs within the commonwealth, tha undertaking of vast
responsibilities la the shape of territorial aggrandizement seems hardly compatible w ith the best Interest of a land
having yot within Its own confines
enormous latent possibilities on tbe
one hand and social discontent and an
over widening breach between labor
and capital pn the other. We see,
however, in spite of all this, that Congress will be asked to appropriate iu
tbo neighborhood of $50,000,000 for
now naval armaments. The people are
pow In a mood to vote largely in this
direction so that lt will doubtless pass.
Should tho proposed enormous addition
to the navy bo made it will place Amer-

view of the unmistakoable affinity for
Kngland that has sprung up as a result
of the recent war, we on this side may
welcome with opon arms auy project
calculated to cement more firmly the
two great English speaking nations.
Such a coalition would naturally alter
diplomatic questions in the far East
and leave Russia In a far from enviable
position. To return to the war aud its
immediate effects, it has, without
doubt, roused thc slumbering patriotism, cemented a people by nature a
heterogeneous mass and brought an
esprit de corps among all that it is
Impossible to undervalue. Wo have
always thought that the prejudice
against things British was the result
of political dictation and of Ignorance.
Now a lasting change has come over
tho American people bo that one can
almost seo the hand writing on the
wall Indicating that the eventual material and spiritual uplifting of the nations is to bo accomplished by the
Anglo-Saxon raco in thc shape of a
lasting alliance between the poople of
the United Kingdom and their kinsmen of tho laud of Washington.
for such, is a question for discussion,
but certain it is there is a splendid opportunity right now to mako Kaslo
something more than a mining camp.
We should require to go to thc larger
centres of population for numbers) but
we should be able to get quite a patronage from the increasing number of
those who spnnd the year in tbe mountains of the Slocan and to whom coming down to Kaslo is what going to
Florida is to tho northerner. Tho
first and principal point is ' for us to
evolve a scheme for advertising tho
city in tho direction indicated and to
solicit in a tangible manner the co-op-
oration of the transportation lines for
noxt season. The matter might eventually bo taken up by tho City Council
tnd Board of Trade, and should receive
consideration at tho hands of all wbo
have thc interests of the city at heart.

Kaslo being a mining town it is common custom to think that there aro no
other resources around, which can be
turned to profitable account. At this
season of the year ono hears and reads
a groat deal of tho extreme heat and
consequent general inconvenience of
living in most of tho inland towns
and cities of Eastern British Columbia
and Washington State, and people can
be seeu daily hurrying bithor and
thither in search of a place where they
can spend from a fow days to a
fow wooks in pleasant recreation. Familiarity breeds indifference,
so that we of Kaslo do not appreciate
the comparative delight that tbe climate bore on Kootenay Lako affords at
this season. During the recent hot
spell tho thermometer has been remarkably low, thanks to the pleasant
breeze from off tbo lako, while Nelson,
Rosslnnd, Spokane, etc., have boen
sweltering under a torrid sun rendering life hardly worth the living. Now
why should not the people of Kaslo
seek to attract lo this ncity, during tho
summer season particularly, a share of
that large lakoskie pilgrimage of people which takes place from tlio larger
cities and finds its way to Lakes Loon,
Cootir d'Alene, and Pend d'Oreille and
other Inland watprs of the Northwest?
We can offer them ovtn more natural
advantages than any of tho places
named: Walks amid woodland surroundings, boating, bathing and fishing
���particularly if something wore done'
to tbo sands at the mouth of Kaslo
Creek-i-'stoawer trips to way points on
the lake and tho ride to Sandon up tho
canon of tbe Kaslo River. We have
not, howevor, oertaln artificial attractions that the other places mentioned
hold out, and although the people ot
the Northwest are far less difficult to
please, do not expect or demand, ultra
fino accommodation and are not as
helpless as eastern folk in the matter
of providing amusement for themselves,
they wlll want something more than a
shcak and a frying pan, and at present
we are certainly not In shape to entertain summer visitors quite in the way
they would expect. How. to provide
suitable .nd attractive entertainments
Tho following changes in tho British
Columbia mining laws should be carefully studied by those interested in
mining in this I'rovince:
First of these refers to the location
of fractions. Iu all fractions surveyed
from now on, whether staked correctly
or not, tbo surveyor may adopt the
boundary lines of thc surrounding
claims, provided no sido exceeds 1500
foot in length. In other words, the locator is entitled to tho vacant ground
that ho claims, even if bo does not
stake it it, such a manner as to include
it all, which ho seldom does.
By a rocinit decision of the Courts a
prospector lost a claim becauso of inability to securo the post necessary to
mark tho location. The amendment
provides that in cases where claims arc
staked above tbe timber lino, or the
prospector can not secure the necessary posts, be may erect monuments of
earth or stone.
In staking an oxtonslon tho posts aro
often planted so as to form a wedge-
shapo fraction between two ends of tho
two claims. These fractions have often incurred great, expense, uot only in
recording and surveying, but in cases
where they carry tho load, and thus become of such value as to promote litigation. Tho amended act authorizes
tho surveyor to include such fraction,
provided it does not cover more than
51.65 acre*, the area of a full claim,
and provided further lhat two location
posts are together.
By failure to record assessment work
within tho roquired period of ono year,
either through oversight or the mio-
undorstandinsr of partnership interests,
valuable claims havo been lost. Now,
if a prospector fails to record the work
within a yoar, bo has ,'JO days' additional time in which to mako tho record by
payment of an extra $10, provided that
tho work is done within tho year.
Anothor change regarding tho assessment work is in that particular
which called for work to the amount'of
$100 each yoar. Now, a minor can do
and record as many assessments as he
idoasos in a yoar by paying tbe recording feo lor eacli assessment done to the
extont of $100.
ln case anybody should adverse an
application for a certificate of improvement and crown grant, tho contestant
must havo bis claim surveyed immediately and file a plan made and signed
by an authorized provincial land surveyor with tho writ.
To obtain a crown grant In 18IH5 it
was necessary to do assessment work to
the amount of $500 and to have tho
claim surveyed, which meant another
$100. In 1897 the act was amended so
as to provide that up to May 1,1808,tbo
cost of such survey should count as
work dono on the claim, not to exceed
$100. In plain English, it counted as
an assossmont and as work toward tho
orown grant. A survey generally costs
$100. The last legislature extends the
time to May I, 1809.      /
Hereafter, in adverse proceedings in
connection with the title to mineral
claims, bofore any court, each party to
the proceedings snail give affirmative
evidence of title- Heretofore the burden of proof was on tho contestant.
Tho feo for  recording assessment
work has beon reduoed from 92.75 to  ��
$2.50. Heretofore the foe for recording J \
assessments has been 23 cents higher,
than other fees.
Anybody who pulls down a legal post
erected to mark a boundary or location
of a mineral olalm, or any writing by
law requlrod to be thereon, is liable to
Imprisonment for six months or a fine
of $250, or both. This Is supposed to
be directed particularly towsrd preventing the use of old posts by people
who restake a claim and sometimes destroy evidences of a prior looatlon.

many apprehensions were felt for Its

There are a few misguided Americans who are Impressed with the belief
tlmt the American-volunteers would not
be able to hold Llielr own with lilie trained regulars of Europe. This belief has
lieen shattered, and most happily, too.

tell the story. Outnumbered, the volunteers fought an offensive buttle, and
that's a terrible haudlcnp of liaeJf,
ngninst trained European soldiers behind breastworks; ngninst men who
were acclimated; against even tlie elements, for n tropical sun nnd tropical
ruins are more terrible than cold lead;
nnd In the face of all they drove these
trained European soldiers back, and
buck, nnd back, until tbey were ulmost

Spain.. Stnnll wonder, then, that the
Americans rested nud withdrew for a
time, without a single soldier of this
trained lot to follow them, even n single
step. But there is another ense In history where Hie Americans met the
trained soldiers of Europe, Thnt wns
more than n hundred yenrs ngo. when
some hired HtvMlaus were brought over

fighting.   Anil wbnt wns their fnte? An
unny to fight must be actuated by patriotic sentiment sufficiently deep to stir
the blood, to quicken the pulse. It must
be netunted by something else than
mere niechnnlcnl love of fighting. And
these the American volunteer army ban
ill the highest degree, nnd ngninst It the
trnlued soldiers of Europe etui not prevail.

The Denver Republican publishes some
very interesting details of the famous Calumet anil Hecla mine of Michigan, Which
now has the deepest mining shaft in the
world. The shaft is now 4900 feet deep-
deeper than any of the deep mines on the
Comstock, Nevada, and deeper than the
deepest mines iu Austria, wliich have been
worked for centuries. The main shaft
has six compartments, each of which is as
huge as an ordinary shaft, one for the
ladderwuys and the sixth for the wires
and pipes, whirl, are necessary for the
telephones, light, power, water and compressed air. The remarkable feature of
this great mine is Hint the course of the
vein is so untlevinting that the engineers
eun plun work ahead for thousands of feet
with absolute certainty that the actual
working will agree with tlie plans. As a
result the underground workings arc laid
out   with  mathematical   accuracy.   The
great pumps thill hoist thousands of gallon* of water every hour are operated interchangeably by compressed air nnd electricity. There are .'1(H) power drills constantly iii operation, each of them doing
the work of six men, operated by compressed uir, and these are kept at work
night and day. Every ton of ore hoisted
is automatically registered in the oflice.

Hem (iolil Fields.
Reports from Ihe Sheepenter district, in
Molilalia, indicate that that portion of
Park county's, gold fields rivals the fumed
Klondike, says the Uvingeton Enterprise.
While it offers none of the hardships to
the gold hunters endured by the Alaskan
argonauts, the find promises to involve t.
legal contest that may temporarily at
least Interfere with the continued production of the yellow metal from the pockets
or veins which produce almost fabulous
yields. The discovery was made sonic time
since by P. Dougherty, Felix McCarthy
and N. ('. Henderson, who began operations and were making good wages by
employing the primitive method of taking
out Ihe rock and treating it in a rocker
located some distance awuy on a mountain si renin. Later they made a discovery
ii|hiii the Legal Tender at a point where
the heavy rains of Ihe pust season had
im used u slide front the old opening in the
mine, exposing n formation much resembling the foi in, 11 ion ubout the park geysers. This rock when handled by the
rocker process yields readily to treatment,
11 greater portion being dissolved by the
simple action of the water, while that
which is too hard und resists this primitive treatment is thrown on a dump for
future milling process. The entire force
employed in taking out the decomposed
rock, moving it from the mine to the rocker and washing it is not to exceed eight
swen, and it is authoritatively stated that
the daily yield is from $125 to $200.
( an> 011 Oreek Strike.
There wu-s a good strike made in the
Black Boar, on Canyon creek, near Wallace, Idaho, a few days ago. The ore is
eight feet wide and assays show it to contain 05 per cent lead and 30 ounces of silver. 'The Black Bear waa worked quite
extensively some years ago and yielded
good returns to the owners. During tho
financial panic i'i, was mortgaged and has
lain idle most of the time since. There is
a concentrator on the property, and as development work progresses it should pay
The Mountain Man,
The Mountain Lion ledge at Republic
has not yet been crosscut and It is the
wonder of mining men wjio visit it. The
ore in the ledge along the sides of the tunnel measures 10 feet.   It should be remem
bered, however, that the tunnel is cutting
the ledge at an angle of about 30 degrees,
hence the true width of the ore body is
considerably less than the figure mentioned, but present indications are that there
will be no less than 40 feet of ore. It is
still the universal belief that the east
ledge has not been reached. Tliere is three
feet of this ore that assays $80 per ton.
llll* Strike In Idaho.
E. A. Purisot and .Stewart Woods!de
have returned to Florence, Idaho, from
Buffalo Hump, and they say that Itigley
and Bobbins, the prospectors who mado
thc recent discoveries, did not exaggerate
in tlie least when they snid they had "30
feet of solid quartz." The ledge is even
wider and tliere is sufficient ore in sight
to lust a lifetime. Mr. Woodside is nn old
miner and mill 111:1 ti with 25 years' experience, and was one of tlie first, in 1870, to
go from Virginia City, New, to tlie Black
Hills, and from there to the Coeur
d'Alenes. When asked what he thought
of it, he said that it was simply wonderful, the biggest tiling in the shape of
quarts he had ever seen. Ttventy-four feet
of the vein gave $34.81 in gold, nine feet
$458.17, und three feet $712.17. Thc two
hitter assays carry about one-eighth in
silver. 1'his is evidently one of the greatest strikes ever mude in Idaho, with possibly the exception of the Custer mine at
Bonanza City in 1877.

Austrian   Gray  Ie   the    Least    Fatal
Color on the Battle Field
The ideal uniform should be suitable
for the season and the place and circumstances under which it is worn. The color should be that which mostly resembles
that of dried grass, so that soldiers wearing it should be as little in evidence as
possible. The red and glaring uniforms
of the British soldier of years ago has been
entirely discarded by that government,
for the reason that it too clearly indicated
the wearer to an enemy. It proved
to be the most fatal color that has yet
been devised. On the other hand, statistics prove that the Austrian gray is the
least fatal. Where seventeen soldiers
wearing the British red fell by the bullets of an enemy only seven who wore
rifle green, six and a half who wore
brown, and five who wore the Austrian
bluish-gray fell. General Robert E. Lee
who made an investigation into this matter when he was in charge of West Point,
before the war of the Rebellion, mude a
report in favor of gray as the color for
uniform*, and ever since then tlie cadets
at West Point have worn uniforms of
that color. It was also for this same reason that General Lee adopted tlie gray-
colored uniform for the Confederate army.
The crack regiments of the country, the
Seventh regiment of New York, the Fifth
regiment of Maryland, ami others wore
gray uniforms before thc war in consequence of General Lee's report. There is
no doubt that soldiers are hit in battle
according to tbe color of their uniform.
In the last war the union cause lost many
a thousand men who would not have been
lost hud thc uniform been less decided in
color. The dark blue uniforms woru by
ollicers the flrst two years of the war
were especially fatal, as they gave sharpshooters an easy way to distinguish ollicers. It is needless to say tlmt the dark
blue was very generally discarded by
officers before the war was over, especially
for real engagement uniform. Any color
will do for parades, practice anil the like,
but when it comes to fighting that which
makes the soldier less conspicuous is the
least fatal for war. The new canvas uniform affords less opportunities to un
enemy than any other which lias ever
been designed, and from a distance an
approaching army can hardly be distinguished by the naked eye, liecause thc
color is so allied to that of the dried grass
over which the army is marching.
