Within a few days the exact, couditlon

MR. BUCHANAN'S RETURN
He Talks of His Mission to Ottawa
and Probable Results.
President G. O. Buchanan, the board
of Trade's delegate to Ottawa regarding an import duty on lead, will pr_-
Bent hia report to the board next Tuesday afternoon. Ee said yesterday that
the government refused to open the
tariff question at this stage of parliament, although not only urged by
Kootenay but also by the nickel workers of Lake Superior who wanted an
export duty and the lumbermen of Ontario who wanted an import duty.
He thinks that next autumn while
the minister of finance is framing bis
proposed tariff legislation, will be the
best time to further press this matter.
The ministry oxpressed surprised that;
pig lead and white lead were to be considered Canadian products. Ministers
Fielding and Sifton both held out
hopes of a future reciprocity arrangement that might be as satisfactory as
anything. Indeed, the Ottawa delegation now at Washington,-D. C., will
probably fully cover those points.

Still Looking tor Span tab Squadron.
London, May 28.���A dispatch from
Kingston, says that despite the most
energetic search the whereabout* of
the Spanish Cape Verde squadron remains unknown to the Americans.
Thursday last It was reported that
tho squadron waa at Santiago and that
Schley had left Key West lor thnt
port. The Spaniards are not there and
since that time he has been engaged in
a fruitless search for them.
V. 8. Warship Near Jamaica.
Kingston, Jamaica, May 28.���A large
American warship  has been sighted
heading for this port.
Wanta lt.ituliis.tlon In Cable Catting.
Madrid, May 28.���Although the news
of the concentration of American warships off Cardenas to begin the bombardment or effect a landing is considered official, lt U not confirmed by any
member of the cabinet. Newspapers
here claim that if tbe United States
cuts the cables between Cuba and
Porto Hico, Spain should do likewise
and cut all cables uniting the U. S.
with the rest of the world.
"Waa Ragle's Dividend*.
Montreal, May 28.���The Gazette, financially referring to the regular listing of War Eagle mining stock on the
Montreal stock exchange, says:
I "We understand that before Mr.
Goodei ham would allow this stock to
be listed on the stoek exchange or pay
a dividend, he called in two of the
ipost eminent mining experts of the
United States, and it was only after
their report that the mine had sufficient net profit ih sight to enable tho
compan yto pay dividends for some
years to come, that one was declared.
It will no doubt take some time to educate the investor up to the Idea tbat
mining stock can be purchased as nn
investment. The fact of Mr. Gooder-
ham being president of the War Eagle
Company, and Hon, Geo. A. Cox one of
the directors, will do much towards
creating confidence in the property.
The War Eagle Ib now shipping 100
tons of ore daily, which will enable it
easily to pay a monthly dividend of
11-2 per cent.
Up In a Balloon. Hoys-,
Washington, May 28.���It is now BOg-
gested that a practical way of andiag
ing out whether the Spanish, .feet is
really bottled up in Santiago harbor or
not would be by a balloon   mscensioo,
The Smelter Bonus Act.
As to the bonus of $.'10,000 per year
for five years, for lead smelters in Canada, Mr. Buchanan said that although
this act had been passed for nearly
three years not a cent had been paid
out under its provisions, although several claims had been tiled. The act
itself seems to have been almost forgotten, and certainly is defective in
that it permits gold smelters as well as
silver-lead smelters to participate in
its benelits.
Washington, May 28.���The diplomatic representatives in Washington
of the great powers without exception
hold the view that there is positively
no chance of foreign intervention in
the present war, and that there is no
present prospect of peace overtures
through arbitration or other tender of
good offices from foreign sources. This
was stated today at three of the leading
embassies. It was given with added
emphasis in view of the constant reit-
eration from London and other foreign
sources that some sort of foreign intervention toward terminating the war
was likely to mature.
Commencing Wednesday, June 1st,
the steamer Idaho will resume her regular trips betwnen Duncan 'and Bear
Creek, leaving Duncan on each
Wednesday and Saturday after arrival
of pack train from Argenta. *
Ii Not a Candidate.
Referring to local political matters,
Mr. Buchanan when asked if he expected to run for the legislature, replied, "There ls no probability that 1
shall be in the field���decidedly not. I
shall probably support the government
as I do oot care to support the opposition. I might support an independent.
It ls by no means a matter uf course1
that Kaslo will furnish the successful
candidate. There should be concerted
action of all the towns in Slocan riding
for its best interests as a whole."
British vh. French in Weat Africa.
London, May 28.���A dispatch from
Lokoja in the territory of the Royal
Niger Company, West Africa, snys
that the natives at Nikki drove out a
French officer and six men who were
established thore. No explanation is
given of the action of tlie natives. After the French had boen expelled the
British troops in the neighborhood entered the place and hoisted their flag.
The natives are rejoicing over the
British occupation of the town. The
French have protested and demanded
that the British withdraw. Thoy have
established a post with tbe French flag
flying outsido the walls.
The town of Nlkkl was one of the
original causes of the dispute between
England and France. According to
Captain Luggard of the British service, the chief of that town sjgnod a
treaty placing his poople under British
protection. Later the French raisod
their flag over Nikki and it has flown
there ever since.
Itritl��h Columbia Stands Weill
In an interview" of a representative of the News yesterday with Manager George Alexander of the International Navigation and Trading Co.
whose return from England was noted
in our yesterday's issue, Mr. Alexander
.     h s.
said that his visit had nothing to do
with any public enterprisers rumored".
He and his family merely went to visit
their old home and people whom they
had not seen for two years.
Mr. Alexander said that the Klondike excitement had almost entirely
died out in London, and any reference
to it fell very flat. He said, though ,
that British Columbia had profited and
would profit   by  the  agitation.   The
*��
mines of this province rank   very high
in the minds of the investing public of
England.
War interest, he said,   was   intense
and    practically  unanimous  for   the
United   States.   Strange  to   say.   at-
though England is not a party to this
war, it has a very depressing and stag-
uating l effect  on   the   money market
there,   so  he  was informed by those
hsving-to do with financial matter*/.

It is reported from Ottawa that the
Manitoba school question has been definitely settled ou a compromise which

a provision for allowing clergymen of
any recognized Christian church to visit tbe schools after school hours and
give such religious Instruction to the
pupils as is approved by their parents.
This prompt settlement of this vexed
question by the Laurier Liberal administration justifies the vote of the people
by which tbe party was placed ln power after a conflict of eighteen years
With tbe Conservative Government.   If
The very remarkable success of the
kite-flying experiments nt the Blue
Hills Observatory at Milton, Mass.,
points the way to future discoveries ln
meteorology beyond anything thnt science has yet achieved. In these experiments nine kites attached to ihree miles
of piano wire carried n small 1m>x iiiii-
tabling n number of meteorological Instruments to a height of nearly 0.000
feet above the observing station. The
Blue Hills Observatory is only 025 feet
above the sen level, but similar experiments mude from n high mountain-top
will give us results from areas Which
no human observation has hitherto
been aide to reach. It is only a little
more than a hundred years since a kite
enabled Dr. Franklin to "snatch the
lightning from heaven." The value of
scientific playthings will again be demonstrated if the modern kite shall reveal lo us the constitution of that interplanetary space which is now un unknown world.
Many things have lieen done In the
strange warfare being waged in Culm
nguiust Spanish authority with which
the steadier temperament und the stnte-
buildliig genius of the citizen of the
United Stntes can fee! no sympathy.
He can sympathize with those whe
have been the victims of oppression,
but he cannot ngree that resentment
ngninst oppression Justifies making war
on non-combatants, destroying the
property of foreigners, resident or nonresident, nnd blowing up railway trains
carrying unarmed and peaceable travelers. But while feeling In this way
about certain aspects of the Cuban
struggle one is less ready to protest
ngninst the swift implication, sent
broadcast from Spain by the telegraph,
that the perpetrator of an attempt to
wreck with a dynamite bomb a Spanish
railway train carrying tlie young king,
lim queen regent and Others of the court
wa* "presumably a Cuban," Why not
equally "presumably" a Philippine
Islander? Both are in rebellion, while
there are more of the latter with fewer
Spanish troops lo keep them busy at
home. Spain iiself is honeycombed
with republican sentiment, nnd, as ls
common on the Kufopeuu continent,
much of il is of the type signitleuutly
called "red." lt is not possible for the
Spanish authorities to hide this homo
condition from the world by attributing
nil thai may lie done In this wuy In the
mother country to rebels nguiust whom
she is waging wnr with twice as many
troops us fhey have, some thousands
of miles away. The only wonder Is that
Spanish "red republicans" have thus
far beeu so quiet.
Engineer Ingles, who killed a bnudit
nnd saved his train from robbery near
Dnvlsvllle. Cal., one night a few weeks
ngo, hns been richly rewurtled for his
heroism by thc two corporations whose
property he preserved on thut occasion.
The officers of the Southern Pacific
Company presented hint with a written
certificate of his courage, a gold chronometer of most expensive mtike and
$2.50 in gold. Wells, Fargo & Oo.'s
Express Company has Just repeated
the written feature of this presentation nnd ndded to lt n set of diamond cuff buttons, a solitaire shirt
stud nnd $,100 in gold. Aside from
the written evidence of his heroism, Ingles Is thus over $1,000 In pocket
ns a result, of thnt night's work. We
advert to tlie good fortune of tills engineer for the purpose of making a
single reninrk. That Is this: The recognition to Ingles will do more toward
suppressing train robbery lu California
than all the laws that couid lie passed,
and while It Is no more than Just that
the Southern Pacific and Wells, Fargo
& Co. should reward those who voluntarily risk their lives in defense of their
property, the credit of making a shining mark of Ingles cannot be withheld
from them. There is no question that
train robbers rely for success mainly
upon the Indifference of the trulu men.
They know that these officials do not
care to risk their lives In defense of
property Ihey are not employed to defend, nnd the very confidence In this
theory causes the recklessness which
gave Ingles his opportunity. When,
however, the bandits begin to realise
that the train men will light they will
take fewer chances and consequently
be Jess successful. The handsome reward conferred on Ingles will elevate
the spirit of the men of both corporations. They will know hereafter tlmt
when they save trains from robliery by
personal bravery their employers will
see that they are not forgotten. With
aggressive, fighting train crews train
robbery will soon become a lost art.

The invention of bells Is attributed
by some of the best foreign campanologists to the Egyptians, who are credited

ONE STAGE TRICK.
How the Blindfolded Juggler Performs
t-eeminfjly Marvelous Tricks.
The next time you see a blindfolded
Juggler tossing knives and razors with
unerring skill and keeping half a dozen eggs unbroken in the air nt at once,
do not let your wonder and admiration
overpower you. You have seen his assistant blindfold liim wiffll a handkerchief. Then you have seen a bag of
heavy burlaps adjusted over his head
nnd shoulders to exclude even the light.
And yet not one egg ever fnils. Not one
knife ever escapes liim.
As u mntter of fact, tlie eonme burlap bag has threads drawn out in that
part which comes before his face, and
in the adjusting of it the assistant slm-
,ply slides the handkerchief up or down
a little. In taking the bag off again he
returns the handkerchief to its place.
The next time the blindfolded juggler

offers to perform for you assure liim
that a blindfolding with a handkerchief
Is quiiite enough, and that you could
not think of having him smothered by
a hag. Then you can have heaps of
fun listening to him lie about the trick.
WOMEN IN   STOCKS.
Mow  the  Chinese  Ileal with   Women
Who Need Correction.
Punishment by the "stocks" ls mostly confined to the women placed In the
prisons of the Celestial empire. Some
Idea of how the women appear who
ure treated In this manner will be
gained from the Illustration, which Is
taken from a photograph. The stocks
nre fastened from behind; nnd although there ls just room to move the
head   it  Is  absolutely   Impossible   for
CIIINKSE  WOMBN  IN STOCKS.
Were you ever Introduced to a disagreeable man who did not remember
you as long aa he lived T
any person to get out of the stocks
without assistance. After a time the
punishment ls terrible, for the head
lielng forced to occupy one position���
ns if lt were lu a vice���makes the
women prostrate In most cases. This
Is n great deal worse when three or
four ure yoked together.
The men, while In "durance vile,"
are treated a great deal better than the
women, although they nre tried aud
dealt with In a much more summary
manner. A Chinese prisoner is put to
death for the slightest, offense, and
there ls no doubt that If he could Bave
his life by so doing he would gladly
liear the punishment meted out to the
ladles of the Flowery Land who come
under the bun of tho lnw.
Art of Hog Driving.
The difficulty of driving a single hog
was w*ll lllUHitTO'ti*d nt tlie foot of Oth
street the other afternoon at about
train time. Some men were driving a
herd of swine to Amherst, ami as they
approached the bridge one of the animals became obstreperous and bolted
toward the city, becoming thereby separated from the rest of the drove.
The three or four men, assisted by
volunteers, placed themselves between
the city and tbe rebellious hog In a
semi-circle, while one of their number
advanced cautiously and began to tickle
the hog's nose with a pine brush. This
would make the animal turn round, and
each time he did so he would move a
few steps toward the bridge and the
rest of the drove. The maneuvers were
watched with a great deal of Interest
by a largo crowd of spectators, and
when finally the wayward one returned
to the bosom of the drove a very audible murmur of admiration "went op
from the crowd.���Lynchburg News.

THB  FIRST  I.IKKBOAT.
/'
THE FIRST LIFEBOAT.
Very Different from  the Coin plicated
Veeael of To-Day.
The story of the lifelioat remains ta
be written. To tlo so now would be
premature, inasmuch as, notwithstanding the large amount of Ingenuity
which has been lavished on the designing of a vessel which shall prove
satisfactory, the thing desired yet remains to lie achieved. The first life-
bout was, curiously enough, devised by j!
h landsman, one Lionel Lukln, a coach-
builder of Dunmow, In Ksbcx, England. This man hud lost some relatives in the foundering of a vessel at /
sea, and he set uhout designing a vessel which should lie unslnkable. Among
those who took up the problem where
Lukln left It was one Henry Great-
head, a bontbuilder of South Shields,
who worked continuously nt the subject, and nu order for the construction
of what Is practically the first specially
constructed lifeboat was given to
Gientheud ln 1805.
The Hrst lifelioat was 30 feet long,
a nil possessed a beam of 10 feet. It
wus rowed by 10 oars, double-banked,
und It wns the first vessel built in
Which the main feuttires of all llfe-
liouts were found. Thus, tlie stem and
stern were alike, It had a curved keel,
and it bulged greatly amidships.
The  Kins Cam*.
At the Brussels exposition    a    few
days ago King Leopold   of   Belgium,      J
wishing to exue.ine more closely a cer-
t>iin American machine, left bis suite
and stepped Into the booth where the      ]
machine was Installed.    He requested
the man lu charge to explain its inech-    jl
iinlsin to hlm.   Not noticing the royal     1
escort a few ynrds away, the attendant took his Majesty for some high official.    He    explained    ln detail the
working of his machine, and    dwelt
upon Its points of excellence.    "And,
sir," he added, "the King himself Is
coming to see lt before long."   Without betraying his Identity, King Leo- ^
pold smilingly thanked the American
and withdrew. He seemed much amused, when relating the incident to those
who accompanied him, at the Idea of
an exhibitor who was expecting ths
King at the very moment when the i
King was leaving him.

Commodore Schley was instructed to
use his utmost endeavors to prevent the

Sun Francisco. May 28.���California said
good bye to her first regiment of volunteers this morning as they inarched gaily
forth from the Presidio to start on their
long journey to Manila.
The men left camp at 8 and marched
to thc Pacific Mail dock, where the big
steamer City of Pekin was ready for them.
Hy noon tlie soldiers were all on board
and before night everything will he in
readiness for their departure.
The farewell demonstration by the people of San Francisco will be long remembered iiy tlie soldiers of tlie First regiment. Kvery street leading from the Presidio to the Pacific Mail dock, a distance
of abottt five miles, was lined with people,
who, after the soldiers passed, followed in
their wake and marched witli them to the
docks.
It had been announced that camp would
lie struck at 7 this morning, and long before that hour thousands of citizens had
Hocked to the Presidio to see the sight.
Promptly at 7 the bugle sounded and all
the tents went down together. Then, for
an hour, the soldiers were busily engaged
in rolling them up and loading them on
trucks.    At  S  the regiment  was formed
into line, and beaded by its bands, marched out through the big stone gates of the
Presidio and the journey of conquest had
commenced.
As the inarching men reached the water
front, bombs were, fired, steam Whistles
blown tCnd every device imaginable for
making noise was put in full operation.
The jam at the mail dock was something
terrible. In vain the police and mounted
signal corps attempted to keep the crowd
hack. They were not to be denied, and
rushed on to the dock in tlie wake of the
soldiers.
Arrived at tlie dock the volunteers were
inarched on board the transport without
delay. It took considerable time for each
man to be consigned to his quarters, but
this task was accomplished with but very
little confusion.
The First regiment of California volunteers is commanded by Colonel James F.
Smith and consists of lOSti ollicers and
men.
Tomorrow the Second regiment of Oregon volunteers, one battalion of the Four*
teehth infantry, United States regulars,
und a detachment of the California heavy
artillery will board the steamship City of

her husband's hand as she watched him.
Apparently he slept a good deal; occasionally he uttered a few- words in an incoherent dremy way���words which those
who were watching were unable to catch.
Their only consolation was that he was
not sulVering pain. No narcotics were administered.

The new crosscut tunnel on thc Keystone mine readied the footwall Saturday
and the vein was proved to be nbout 10
feet wide between wulls, suys a correspondent, nt Slyvanite, Mont. Drifting was
iminodintely started south along the foot
wall und is now advanced uhout 15 feet.
This will be pushed on until under the big
stope on the upper level, when a crosscut
will be run to the hanging wall. Drifting
will also be done north and a raise will
soon be made from the north drift to the
upper level. Thc big stope referred to on
the upper level was encountered in drifting south on the footwall from the face
of the crosscut tunnel. After drifting
about 45 feet the drift went through two
feet of ore into rock that was supposed
to lie the foot wall. This was cut through
and found to he a horse two feet thick.
It was passed and n tremendous body of
ere wns entered that has since been known
in this camp us the "big stope." This is
now shown to be 55 feet wide and the
hanging wall Is yet to be discovered. This
great oro hotly hits heen explored for 126
feet und its width holds out throughout
that distance. The drift hits been run 200
feet further und now shows about sW
feet of ore in the face. A north drift has
ulso beeu run about 200 feet but no such
immense ore body has been entered as on
the south drift.   However, the drift has
opened up ore varying from five to six
feet wide. It is conservatively estimated
that there is ore enough in sight to keep
th presnt 10-stiimp mill running day and
night for two years.

It is KpOrtod here thut Mr. Craven,
until recently amalgamator nt the Daddy,
will put up n live-Stamp mill this summer
to work some of the ore from I'ony gulch,
between Delta nnd Beuvcr stution, Idaho,
Spokune purties are suid to be behind the
enterprise, which should be u paying one,
us there is some good ore up I'ony gulch.
Years ago there was a mill built tliere
which crushed the rook with rolls instead
of stamps���a method which has proven
a failure on the hurd quartz of the Coeur
d'Alenes. The mistake was also mude of
locating the mill where it wus inconvenient nnd expensive to get the ore to it,
nnd steitui power wus used to mn it. Even
with those disadvantages it, was almost
a success, and it is confidently boneved
that mills driven by water und suitably
located would prove that there are a number of mines in thut region that wUl pay
for working und some that will be profitable.
Since the old mill���the Fny Templeton
��� closed down thero has been nothing done
on I'ony exeept assessment work, and the
region which ut one time was a promising
one, has nearly dropped out of sight. The
Fay Templeton property was reincorporated hist fall, some of the prominent mining men of tlie south fork becoming interested iu it, and it wus then understood
that arrangements would be mnde this
spring to work the property on a business
bnsis, with the expectation that some
money would be made from it. The old
mill was torn out, the boiler being sold
to the revivification works at Murray, but
there tho work ceased, and nothing more
hus been heard regit rding it.
The Iron Mask.
The winze on the Iron Musk, near Ross
land, has reached tlie 105-foot level below
thc main tunnel, which is equivalent to a
depth from thc surface of 305 feet, the
deepest workings yet opened on the property. About two feet, of excellent shipping
ore has been disclosed in the winze. In
the west drift on the main tunnel level u
raise in under way to open ground for
sloping. The raise is disclosing some
good ore. From the annual report of the
minister of mines, the production of lode
properties , in the year 1897, was .$20,547.
This was lead and silver. In 181)3 the
flrst 1170 unces of gold wus reported, total values, $21)7,400. Copper wus first
marketed in 181)4, there being 324.680
pounds, valued at $111,234. The total of
the lode mineral values for the year 1807
was $7,052,431. From the year 1887 to
1H!)8, 10 yours, British Columbia produced
from her lode mines $15,004,427.
Montana (ity Placers.
The prospecting operations on bed rock,
conducted by means of a large centrifugul
pump on the placer grounds near Montana
City has led to the employment this season of a steam shovel and other modern
gold saving appliances such as is in successful use at Bannuck and elsewhere on
formerly rcih surface placer grounds, in
this state. Part of the machinery is already on the ground, and the work of getting it in position for actual operation
is being pushed without delay. Last season's prospecting thoroughly demonstrated the fact that the actual bed rock of
the placers at Montana City had not only
never been molested but that they are
rich in gold, a fact which haa always
been maintained by miners familiar with
the ground, and the installation of the
dredge process to save the gold will be
watched with great interest by everybody
interested in the. development of that section of the country.
The  North  Star.
One of the largest mining deals of the
year is reported to be progress of nego
tiation at Fort Steele in the Kast Koote-
nuy district. A huge English syndicate,
basked by the Rothschilds, Is negotiating
for the piirchiiKO of the famous North
Star mine on u basis of $3,000,000. One
of the principal owners of the mine, 1).
1). .Mann, has been given authority to sell
by the other owners, and it is reported
that negotiations are progressing favorably. The North Stur is one of the oldest
locutions in the Fort Steele district and
tliere ure millions of dollars worth of ore
in sight. It hits heen under development
for a number of years und only the luck
of adequate transportation fucilities has
prevented the property from taking a foremost rank among the silver mines of thc
world.
Yntlr Camp.
A one-fourth interest in the Plymouth
or Narmo C. group bus lieen sold to Thomas Kereeme of Rossland for $4000 cosh.
This property is close to the Tumaroc and
hits a fine, well defined ledge running
across the entire claim which runs high
in gold and copper. 'Ilie group was owned by John P. C'urtin Temple .Seeley and
Thomas Stuck of Rossland. Temple Seeley was the one who disposed of his interest. Considerable work has been done
on the Plymouth. It is said work will be
commenced on the group ut un curly date.
J, P. Rogers of St. Mary's, Ont., has par*
hased one-half interest in the Ollie claim

New York May 24. ���A dispatch, to the
World from Washington suys:
Congress will soon be railed upon to decide the question of buifjiug a cunul connecting the Atlantic and I'ucifie oceans.
Chairman Davis of the senate foreign relations committee suid:
"The need for uction between the Atlantic und Paciflo can not be questioned.
Our interests demand it. With a cunul
between the two oceans we would have
nothing to fear from an attack on our
Pacific const. As it is it would take us 00
days to send our fleet around the Horn to
the Pacific coast cities. With the canal
we could dispnch men-of-war to San Francisco from New York in 14 days. With
a liberal appropriation���say $100,000,000
���a canal could he constructed tnrough
Nicaragua that would be of great value
to this government for all time to come.
"The Maritime Canal Company, which Is
endeavoring to sell its interests to the
government, started the canal some time
ago and considerable work wits done, but
the hurd times of 1892-93 enmc along and
struck a death blow to tho enterprise.
This eompuny succeeded in getting certain
concessions, which it still retains, and it
is but right that the United States should
buy these concessions and pay the canal
company for the work it has already done.
I do not know just how much it has accomplished, but I um told that considerable, excavating has been done on the Pacific side of the cunul. The company has
some dredges, scows, etc., which we could
well afl'ord to buy."
