An Average Cut of $1 Per Ton
On Ore shipments.
Welcome News io Kootenay.���An Interview
Witli Agent Irving of thc K. & S. Ry.
General Freight and. Passenger
Agent Robert Irving of tho Kaslo k
Slocan railway returned from St. Paul
Wednesday evening. Tho object of
his trip there was to attend a confer-
once of tho traffic managers of the
various railways doing husiness in the
northwest. Tbe result of that conference wns a readjustment of freight
rates that is distinctly beneficial to the
Kootonay.
Mr. Irving was seen at his olllce yesterday by a Nows representative.
While guarded aud cautious In his
statements as to his opinions, he was
even more affable than usual, in the
knowledge that ho brought a pleasant
Thanksgiving day message to tho people of Kaslo and tho Kootenay.
"Tho freight rates on ore shipped to
foreign smelters will be reduced by an
average of $1 per ton, as a result of
this conference" said Mr. Ir��ln_r.
"Or to specify more In detail it will be
as follows:
"To Everett,Or��at Falls and Helena,
from 911 to $10 per ton.
"To Pueblo, from *18.25 to $10.50 per
ton.
"To Omaha, from $111 to $18 per ton.
"A differential will also be made iu
addition to this in favor of -ore shipped
in sacks, sufficient to cover the cost of
sacking the ore. in'othor words the
railway companies practically pay tho
Shippers for sacking.
"For instance, where tho charge
would otherwise bo 116.60 per ton for
ore shipped in bulk, it will be $lo.-o
for ore in sacks.
"As to merchandise shipped into this
country, rates are placed on a firmer
basis but are not raised. In some instances they are reduced and the effect
as a whole is favorable to tho merchant
and consumer.
"This meeting," continued Mr. Irving, "was attendod by representatives
of the 0. P. R., Great Northern, Northern Pacific, Union Pacific, IUo
Grande and Western, Denver & Rio
Grande, Oregon^Short Line, O. R. & N.,
and Spokane Falls & Northern besides
diii' own road, The printed rates are
not yet received and 1 bolieve that the
li. 0. News will be tho llrst paper to
make any of them public.
Kaslo's Future llright.
"I return to Kaslo with renewed
faith in It and the Kootenay," said Mr.
Irving. "As a rule business matters
ln the States continue dull. I found
St. Paul very quiet for a city of its
size. If I should tell .'all I now know
about future pay rolls, etc., It would
mako you feol very onthuslastic, about
Kaslo's future. Drawing it mildly, I
believe that in two years or less, Kaslo
will bo tbo leading town in tho Kooton-
u'y In material Interests if not In population." . .   .
light dynamo of tho S. K. C. system,
which ls later to be duplicated. It is
technically 'known as a 75 kilo watt,
2,400 volt dynamo, of the two phase
system, alternating. It, with most of
tho other machinery came from tho
works of tho Royal Electric company
of Montreal. The main generator is
excited by a 100 light, 125 volt straight
curront machine. Ahandsomo marble
switchboard 5x7 feet with, the latest
appliances completes the list of tho
more important apparatus. All is the
best that could be bought. Everything is new and of the most improved
patern. Tho entire system includes
two and a half miles of triple wire.
There are bIx transformers down town
with a capacity of 250 lights each,
which step thc current down to the required voltage for local lights.
Power will bo supplied as well as
light,
Tne building was designed and constructed by Frank Steffi, an expert
timberman. It is 30x50 feot aud considered to bo ono of the best framed
structures in the country. E. C. Cummings, 0. E., designed and constructed
the bond gates and Hume.
G. Alexander is president of the
company, W. P. Dickson is manager
and W. R. McRao is chief engineer.
Walter S. Jones a local eloctriciun has
rendered valuable service in the de-
tuils of getting tho system Into operation.

Tho confession, which has been clearly
identified as in Blanther's writing
states that he not only killed Mrs.
Langfeldt, but also lllanehe Lamont

this confession will clear Durrant.
This document will doubtless prove a

will go into effect next Wednesday,
December 1. Locally it affects us but
little, the only change hero being that
tho Steamer Kokanee runs on her old
schedule to Nelson daily except Sunday, Instead of daily except Monday,
as heretofore.
Just how the Slocan City branch is
to benefit that city at Kaslo's expense,
as it has boon heretofore claimed it
would do, does not appear from a study
of these tables. For instance, a traveller from Spokane bound for Sandon
now makes tho trip in 27 hours, including an overnight stop at Kaslo.
Iiy taking the Slocan City branch road
he will reach Sandon in .'111 hours Including an overnight stop in Nelson.
A double daily sorvice, Sunday excepted, of tbe steamer Sloean on Slocan lake will make close connections
with all trains leaving and arriving
nt Slocan City and Rosebery. Slocan
City's new branch railway will help
that town by giving it connection with
Nelson in two hours and 20 minutes.
ily obviating tho main-line delay as
heretofore necessary at Revelstoke,
of lying over from 4:.'10 a. m. to 0:15 p.
m., the change gives a 27 hour service
between Vancouver and Sandon.

All voters who wish to bo recognized
in tho next city election, are notified
that next Wednesday, December 1st, is
the last day upon which they can appear before City Clerk Chipman and
get their names placed on the municipal voter's list. So far, over 500 names
are on the list. Voters must re-register
each year.
Interest ls arousing in tho personnel
of the probable candidates for the ollice
of mayor. On the street corners, talk
may be hoard of several prominent citizens whom people would liko to see in
the race. Genoral regret is expressed
that Mayor Green seems determined
no! to enter the lists to succeed himself, lie probably thinks that he has
earned his exemption. All, as far us
heard from, agree that lie has made an
excellent mayor.
Prominent among those talked of,
upon whom tho honor is likely to fall,
are the following, none of whom have
heen interviewed, however, upon the
subject by the News: so that tho mention of their names here does not necessarily imply willingness upon their
part.
Alderman G. O. Buchanan is recognized as an able man for tho position. His large holdings in tho lumber buisness here, closely idontify him
with tho materlul Interests of the city.
Olty Solicitor Cs Ws McAnn is also
prominently mentioned and seems to
have quite a following. It is urged by
.-onie that being a municipal officer already,ho is not eligible, but that condition could of course bo easily remedied,
F. E. Archer, the hardware merchant, who made a strong race last
year for the same office, is again being
talked of by lii*(^iumorous friends for
tho position.
Alderman .1. D. Moore is having quite
a boom worked up by various admirers,
who consider that if the city wants a
level headed, conscientious man at the
head of affairs, "Jack's" superior can
not be found.
Alderman A. T. Garland,, the merchant, is being spoken of very favorably for tho mayoralty, although some
of his friends suy that this is without
bis sanction.
There may lie, and doubtless aro,
others, but a casual inquiry developed
only tho foregoing. Aldermanic honors seem to be going a bogging. It is
reported that nono of the present aldermen will consent to run again. But
It Is thought that later somo more self-
sacrificing patriots may bo found.
To bo eligible for tho mayoralty, in
addition to citizenship, one must be on
the municipal assessment 'roil for at
least $1,000 worth of realty; for an alderman's seat tho qualification is reduced by 1600,
The campaign will bo short but probably lively, if last year's is any criterion. The nominations will bo made
Monday, January 10th, ..ud the election
will bo hold Thursday, January 13th.

the murder of his bethrothed, Mrs.
Langfeldt, in San Francisco something
over a year ago. Blanther had disappeared and was finally located in Texas
last March, where, being an educated
man, he had been teaching school. He
obtained poison in some way whilo in
jail and took it with fatal results. On
the night of his self destruction, it ls
alleged that he wrote a letter to a
prisoner named Pitts ln an adjoining
cell, who bad befriended him, and slipped the letter into Pitts' coat pocket as

W. If. Lynch, a pioneer of Kootenay
has been spending a few days in Kaslo
during the past week. He has recently como from London, England and is
planing to return there soon. Being
asked what is the put-look for foreign
investments in Urttish, Columbia, Mr.
Lynch said:
"It Ih very good Tlie British investor goes with n tide, afid'you will
almost always find an investment tide
running in the London market. At
one time it may bo the Argentines, at
another time American rails, or Industrials. British Industrials huve
had a high How. But whatever the
tide may bo,one must swing in with it If
he would open the purse strings of John
Bull, Latterly tho high tide has been
in "Kaffirs,', "Wcstrallans." etc. It
promises next to be Klondlkes. Incidentally, tho interest in Klondike is
drawing attention to British Columbia
and you need not bo surprised at an
early boom in this direction. Early
last summer it was not easy to 'get the
ear of the foreign investor when one
talk.d of raining in British Columbia.
Later, after Klondike struck the
world, a new tide set in and its flow
takes in this whole northwest with
moro or less force."
Mr. Lynch requests the mine owners
desiring to exhibit their ore in London
to leave specimens'at Archer & Go's
hardware store ir. this city, properly
labeled, as he Intends opening up a
general Kootenay ore 'exhibit in London. Any ore specimens left as directed within the coming fortnight will be
forwarded and exhibited without

Alderman Buchanan to a Vancouver
World Reporter.
Interesting Description of Kaslo's Greatest U_.
developed Resource.
Alderman G. 0. Buchanan has 'just
returned from a business trip' to the
coast. While in Vancouver he gave a
very interesting description of the Lar-
do-l)uncan country to a World reporter which is partially reproduced herewith, After detailing the work of the
now Lardo-Piincan Improvement Association, Mr. Buchanan says:
"The united Lardo and Duncan rivers 11" w into the north end of Kootenay
lake, about 18 miles from Kaslo. The
townslte nt Lardo, overwhelmed by u
slide in the convulsion' of 18!i4. is on tbe
west shore of the lake, and the town
site of Argenta where a Stopping plncr
is maintained, is ou tlio opposite shore
From Argents a pack trail goes to
Duncan lake, 12 miles, and from Lardo
a foot trail goes to Trout lake about 110
miles. At about 8 miles"above the
hike tho fork of the riven occurs, the
Lardo coming from the northwest and
the Duncan from the northeast.
"Immediately above tho fork, the
Lardo is filled with an immense timber jam and at frequent Intervals above
it is obstructed to such an extent thai
prospectors do not attempt to take up
their boats. On the Duncan tlie oil
lake steamer Idaho, a propeller, drawing live foot of water, has gone to a
point about -10 miles above Kootenay
lake. Of this distance, 10 or 12 miles
consists of the broad water of Duncan
lake, which is open except for a few
weeks in tho heart of severe winters.
Above tho lake the Duncan is a prairie
river, drawing the links of its long red
chain backward and forward across the
valley enelosing horseshoes of meailov.
and hushland.
"An appropriation made by the Dominion government of 18,000 was partially expended under the direction ol
Mr. Gamble, last winter, in clearing
out jams, snags and sweepers; and an
appropriation for the prosecution of the
work also of 18,000 stands in the estimates of tlio present year.
"A railway charter was obtained
last winter by a local company, authorizing thorn to build r in both of these
valleys, and intontions to apply for
similar powers aro now advertised by
two other parties. The association will
be prepared to show, when they have
collected their datn, that tho mineral
in sight now in this new country is
equal to all the showings in tlie whole
Kootenay lake country, when the
Kootonay and Columbia raihvav was
built.
���'A subsidiary consideration, bui one
that will count for a good deal -11 'he
long run, Is the fact that great wealth
of timber and of ranching and agricultural lands will be opened up. dome
Of the bottom lands alorg tho river,
and somo of the bench lauds on the
slopes, are of the highest grade of fertility.
"The mineral so far discovered has
been chiefly galena ores of somewhat
lower grade in silver than are the mv,-
of the Slocan camp, but in bodies of
unusual   size.    In   the   midst   of    the
eiiibarras de rii'hesse. [a which tbe dominion and provincial governments are
now struggling, the Lardo-Duncan As
sedation does not intend that they shall
be allowed to forget or to neglect this
kingdom of wealth which lies so desist hand and in connection with which
so slight an effort will produce so vast
a return."

Idaho is Ihe fifth state in the Union in
the output in gold und silver, having produced in round numbers .y.i.iiiiii.iiiiu in
the year 1800, says the Qrangsvills Press,
California, far-famed for its mineral
wealth, produced only $16,000,000.
The largest number of cattle ever received in one year was that of Chicago
iu the yenr   IHH4, being  1,874,98. beeves,
80,828   calves,   6,640,625   hogs.   74ti,!ii7
sheep und 16,086 horses. It required 11000
trains of III cars each, which, it coupled
together, would  reach '2146 miles.
The largest producing fnrm iu the world
lies in the southwest corner of Louisiana,
owned by a northern syndicate.   It runs
Inn miles north und south. This immense   Intel   is   divided   into  convenient
pustules, with stations of ranches every

JUSTIN TIME
FOR DINNER
A si nil from some noted criminal
prosecutions   which   1   conducted
several years ago,   tho   Incident
which  1   am about   lo relate  wns one nl
ihe most interesting chapters in my professional life, It had been a storni) No
vomber day. Muring ihe morning the rain
had come down iu torrents. Toward tTootl
Ihe water began lo crystallize as il de
wended, and all aI'lorimon ihe snow had
been blowing and drifting iu h very uncomfortable way. It grow dark curly.
Perhaps it was because of Ibis I lull 1 decided to go homo un hour earlier than
usual. I say perhaps, because I have always thought that providence had something to do with my going out on to tho
street nt that moment. Passing up Broadway l turned Into Ifonrteenth street to
cross (0 the elevated railroad slalion.
Near the corner I encountered n crowd
of men and boys, iu the renter of which
stood a bitiocont with a prisoner,  Stuiul
ing on tip-too. I saw that the prisoner
wns n young lad wilh a remarkably liaud-
S.0111C face nml gentlemanly milliner. A
call had been sent hi for a put nil wagon,
nnd tho policeman was waiting tho response. Tho hoy looked thoroughly frightened. Ah I reached the sisil he was protesting  his Innocence und  hogging to  be
released.
"I tell you honestly, sir. it is a mistake.
I know nothing of the jewelry. I inn innocent, sir; I nm. Iruly."
"That's nil right, you young rascal."
the policeman replied, "Nobody that's arrested over steals anything. Hill when
wc get our clutches on 'em thoy don't
generally turn out such Innocents as they
clnlni."
.lust then the patrol wagon (limited up.
two ollh .a- alighted, and the boy was
quickly hustled up the slops of the wagon
and driven oil'.
"VVluit Station?" 1 asked its they drove
oft toward the south. There wns no reply, but by walking rapidly In tho direction taken by the officers 1 soon brought
up at the Mercer street station, where, aa
an attorney, 1 soon obtained an Interview
with the lad whose face had so greatly
Interested me. When I was shown lo his
cell he was weeping bitterly, and appeared to be in absolute daepair,
"I saw you at tho patrol box," I snid by
way of introduction, "and thought I would
like to find out a Utile, more about your
iime. 1 am a lawyer; and if you are innocent, ns 1 think you must ho, 1 will see
what enn be done to get you out of -his.
My name is Lawson, what is yoursV"
"Frank Orr," he snid promptly, as a
wave of gratitude an,| hope swept over his
face. Then he added: "This is very kind
of you, sir. The whole miserable business
is a mistake. I never took u bit of thc
jewelry; not a bit."
Then 1 snt down on tlie cot beside
Frank n.nd nsked him to tell uie all about
his trouble.
His home was in Western Vermont, he
said, aud he hnd been in New York about
B year. He had come here to get a start
fat the world. While his success had not
been aJ< that his faucv used to paint it,

"Tlii-u if the jewelry was taken while
yon wero in chnrgo It could have boon
taken by no ono but yourself," I snid
snniewbiit severely to see whul effort the
conclusion would hnve on the prisoner,
"It looks bud fur inc. sir. especially us
oue of tho rings wus found in in.v oven-oat
pocket."
"Thai liiHt fad counts for nothing." I
remarked, ami added) "Tell n andldiy,
Orr, have you no theory upon which the
thing can be explained?"
"No, sir, 1 huve not; Il seems very
strange; I can't understand it," ho said,
his voice trembling perceptibly,  nnd   his
ayes iignin tiding with tears,
"It is a trirlo mysterious, my young
friend," I suld, rising. "But I somehow
believe you nre not the guilty party. I
will ask tho Kcrgcnnt to give you n more
comfortable place than this for tbe night.
in the morning i will sec you again."
When the case caine up at the Jefferson
Market polios court next dny I secured un
adjournments Then I w^t to wxirk vigorously to hunt down th#Thief. I started
out on the theory of t rank's innocence.
Then, it whs clear that the janitor could
not himself have stolen tho goods. He
might have had nn accomplice, however,
who may hnve hoen concealed somewhere
iu tlie room, and carried off the jewelry
while Frank was taking his two-minute
view of the horses in the alley. This fliief
might have dropped the ring into Frank's
pocket so aa to point suspicion toward
its owner.
My theory proved correct. A guarded
talk with some people living near the
home of Hogan, the janitor, made me acquainted with his character nnd habits.
What I learned was uot to his credit. I
also came into possession of the fact thnt
he hud been seen the previous night at a
Bowery so loon in company with a fellow
named Tingle, who had done time at Sing
Slog, and who was now under surveil-
inade, nnd told him lie wns nt liberty.

I'mnk Orr hud been looking forward joyfully for ninny weeks. Itul since his unjust arrest ho hnd nbnudoiiod all hope of
going, nml n meaesge hnd been wired to
his mother, announcing that unexpected
circumstances would prevent his being

we came out of Die court room together,
"Vou will not have much time to lose,
hut you can make your truin nnd reach
home in time for dinner yet. (Vinie buck
as soon ns you ciiu," 1 snid, when We
parted, "and come si might to my olllce.

THI*; DEATH I'ENALTY.
The dispatch published elsewhere
relating tn the discovery of allowed
new evidence in the form of a suicide's
confession oonoerning tho famous Dur-
i ant case, revives the ciuostion of the
advisability and justice of the death
penalty��� and especially incases of conviction obtained upon circumstantial
evidence, There is something shockingly repulsive in tho legal execution
nf uu innocent man. History records
many eases where such executions
have occurred. Tiie fact of the execution itself is secondary in such cases
���o thc outrage upon the feelings of the
victim and his family through most
cruel injustice and the ignominy of
undeserved death on the scaffold.
Durrani may .'or may not, be innocent.
The evidence against him while
.-iron"' was purely circumstantial and
lull of weak spots. As strong a case
could probably have been made against,
I lurrant's pastor, Ilov. Gibson, if the
police had centered their effort:,
against him as strongly as against
Durrani The public clamored for a
victim and the police were forced to
demonstrate their own right to exist as
in.v part of the machinery of justice.
If this alleged confession should bo
proven to be true, Durrant's coolness
ami   unmovedness,   which    has  been
��� ''.ed against him for brazenhess would
lien be cited as evidence of a mind
. Dspious of Innocence.
A purl fiom il.e ethical questions in voted in the administration of justice,
1 lie Imprisonment would Serve equally
practical results with capital punish-
iu ;h in the deterrence of crime. The
lainorallzing effect upon the public
would bo lessened by half. Criminal
��� lals would not be Buch long-drawn-out
��� nl bitterly contested affairs. The
feeling would always be thnt in case of
newly discovered evidence after conviction, at least partial justice minlit yet
be dune to tlie supposed criminal who
had not been forced to meet violent
legal death. Legal executions stir up
all the morbid and savage instincts in
the mind of any community and causo
the people to retrograde in every in-
stanoe towards barbarism,

t. strong evidence of his confidence
Iii tho groat value of the Wav.rley
mine near Albert Canyon, West Kootenay, is the resignation of J. D. Graham, of tho responsible position of
oold commissioner of tlio northern
division, for the purpo,e of taking the
general managership of the VVaverly
company says tho Victoria Colonist.
Naturally Mr. Graham has bad special
facilities for acquiring a knowledge of
tbe mine, and being an ex-member of
the Royal Engineers, and a practical
minor, was also capable of forming a
proper ostimato of Its value. Up to
ihe present tir.io Mr. John Grant of
ltuvulstokc, a largo owner in tbe Gold-
'.iilCs of British Columbia, limited,
i. ,..��� parept company ofthe Waverley,
has managed tbe business of the latter.
Mr. Grant has resigned and will visit
Detroit.his home; aud afterwards go to
i.ondon lo consult with his associates.
Tlie Wiiverly is u remarkable mine.
It is of great width, 74 feet, and carries
pay ore from the surface. There is at
least 17 feet of shipping ore, rich In
grey copper, galena and gold, averaging from $200 to $2."i0 per ton in all
values, while it is expected tho average value of the full width of tho large
vein will be over $100 per ton. Tho
development so far has been carried on
in a practical way. There are over
300 feet of tunneling, altogether in pay
oro, and this wiil bo followed by the
running of another tunnel at thc tiuO
foot level, which will block out a stupendous quantity of pay oro.

The plans for tho silver-load furnaces at the Trail smelter are now in
the hands of the workmen, and the
construction thereof will be begun this
wook, says tlio Trail Creek News.
When completed the Trail smelter

thoro is no doubt hut the Trail smelter

WATKK RISING IN THK l.AKi:
Trememlou. Rise   in  Kootenay River at
liomier'a Ferry.
The thaw of tho past week has caused the water in the lake to riso several
feet. It is said that the Kootenay
river at Bonner's Ferry rose 22 foot in
24 hours. Such a rapid rise has never
been experienced before. Even tho
Kootenay Indians, who have lived in
that vicinity for generations, say they
have never seen anything like it before. 	
A limit Advertising.
A business man can not daub his
name and business on a fence or rock
without getting some good ont of it;
neither can he:run a stereotyped ad in a
paper for a solid year without some returns. Even if he does not think he sees
any benefit, it comes, nevertheless.
What then must be the results from
u real live advertisement? If a business man will simply give to his advertising the same thought and care
and tho samo application of business
experience that he gives to buying his
stock, the selection and training of his
clerks and tho miscellaneous details of
his business, there is nothing more
suro under tho sun than that he will
then no longer complain of rates, or
"that thero is nothing in it," but will
bo an enthusiastic and thoroughly convinced advocate of the effloaoy of printer's ink.

Indiana is conceded to be the home of
the White Cap. It is In the Hoosier
State that the organization and practice had their birth, and, although both
have since spread to ninny States, the
people of no other community have
been so afflicted wilh them as have the
Indlaniitis. How or by whom the first
White Cap organization was formed is
not known, but early In the 80's It began operations, and its success In rld-
dlug certain localities of miscreants
led to the rapid spread of the organization in many parts of the State. These
men, wearing white pillow-cases over
their heads nnd shoulders, witli holes
cut through to enable them to see, began switching belter living Into the
lawless element Armed with switches
they would ride silently up to the home
of an outlaw, and. taking hlm unawares, would switch lit in nearly to
death. In several enscs death did re-
null from the beatings which were ad-
ministered usually to the outlaw and
his whole family Irrespective of sex.
Thc White Caps were regularly organized and governed with great sternness
nnd secrecy. No one was admitted unless his character for honesty was
above reproach. A sitting was held
where it was thought desirable thnt the
organization tnke up some special case.
Wheu It had decided that punishment
was necessary it was meted out with
terrible sternness. In the earlier days
the visitation seldom miscarried. The
victim hnd no warning, uutll some
night a score of men broke Into his
cabin and whipped him almost to death
at his own gate post. He wns thert
given twenty-four hours to leave the
country. The death which In ninny instances followed refusals to obey this
mandate hnd a salutary effect.   In some
a pronounced sentiment In favor of
drastic measures on the part of the
Governor to the end that the organizations may be broken up and their leaders if not the rank and Ilie be brought
to respect the law. In certain counties of the State regular White Cap
organizations are In existence. The
members are known to many citizens
who would gladly give evidence against
them but for the fear that the local authorities Would not be able to protect
them against the violence which might
result.
Many of the recent outrages have
been characterized by exceptional brutality. Some of the victims have suffered without any cause being known
to those who were In a position to
judge best of their lives. In Brown
County a man and a woman, tl" latter
sick at the time, were taken out of their
cabin at night, the cabin, with their little effects, burned and themselves
driven from Ihe county with threats of
hanging if they returned. In another
instance in the same county u man was
unmercifully whipped because he
would not work, though a physician
was attending him at the time aud testified afterward that It was Impossible
for his pal lent to perform any kind of
labor. This mini was receiving aid
from the township trustees and the
reason for attempting to drive him to
work wns that he might not be a burden upon the taxpayers of the township. After the whipping he refused to
accept further old on account of fear
of another beating and his immediate
neighbors contributed to his support till
he was able to return to work. He Is
reported to be a quiet, Inoffensive citizen and was never accused of crime.

instances where resistance was made
the White (laps shot the victim full of
bullets. Cabins were usually burned
after the whipping had taken place.
This went on for years. The authorities made some feeble attempts to
prosecute the White Oaps, but it was
impossible to get the slightest evidence
against them.
When It wns found Hint they were as
Immune from Hie law as the outlaws
hud been Ihey turned their attention to
those guilty of minor offenses and became themselves the victims of a
moral laxity. They took to regulating
domestic difficulties between husbands
and wives. They punished petty
thieves nnd the victims of vice with the
same barbarity they had mooted out
to murderers nnd the larger criminals.
Neighborhood (|tinrrels, petty hates nnd
personal dlsllltps were made the subject of white capping nnd politics began to play Its pnrt In the outrages.
Scores of Innocent men nml women
were whipped and submitted to tortures unspeakable. In still more eases
the property of the victims wns confiscated by their persecutors. The organization became lax and admitted
members who used It to wreak their
personal spite. Men In twos nnd threes
began to do White Cap work on their
own nccount and the parent organization found itself charged with crimes
and persecutions of which It had no
knowledge. White capping ceased for
a time under the stern rule of the late
Governor Gray, but It again raged under Governor Matthews, although he
strove his best to put it down. The
evil has again come to the front, and
Governor Mount has ordered a thorough Investigation of the terrible affair at Osgood, thnt the guilty men may
be brought to Justice. The sudden and
apparently general revival of white
capping In Indiana is causing much
concern ln official circles, and there is
great indignation among Ihe order-loving citizens was that of Ihe whipping
of a widow on account of alleged Improper conduct. Her husband had died
a year before, and bIic was trying to
cultivate a piece of poor land and make
a living for herself and two small children. She was Ihe associate of her
uearest neighbors, regularly attended
the country church, aud no one hud
ever breathed n word against her character. To the surprise of all her friends
she was taken from her home at night
and threatened with a whipping if she
did not leave the neighborhoods Ouly
her piteous pleading saved her from the
paiii unit Indignity which the White
Caps intended to Indict. It Is said In
behalf of the White Cup organization
of the county that It wns not the mover
in this outrage, ami that none of Its
members were present, but the citizens
who have appealed for relief point to
this fact as nn additional reason for
the disbanding of the organization, for
It Illustrated what may be done In Its
iiniue.
Hit, but Not Killed by �� Cannon Ball.
A unique distinction belongs to Sir
Robert Hawllnson, K. C. B��� that of being the only soldier who has been
knocked out of the saddle by a cannon
ball without being killed. The identical forty-two-pouud shot ls preserved
by Lady Rawllnson as an Interesting
relic. At the Crimea Sir Robert was
riding with a group of artillery officers,
when he announced his Intention of
turning bock. At this moment a shot
from the Russian linos came whizzing
along in front of him, cutting the reins
and pommel of the saddle, and wedging a steel purse with terrific force

Hypnotising by Telephone.
The wonders of the telephone never
cease. The latest brought to the attention of the New York Klectrleal Kn-
ginecr Is the hypnotizing of a young
boy through the medium of the telephone at Houston, Texas. It Is need-
lesti to surmise, adds i lie l.nglncci', thut
the subject wus a pronounced cataleptic; but the fact brought to light would
seem to indicate more strongly thnn
ever the necessity for u Stringent law

Invented by a Polish chemist. It Is believed that bombs tilled with this chemical, and thrown Into the ranks of an
opposing army, will in a few moments
make Ihe foe utterly helpless.
Condensation Is the result of chilling
the air. The ascent of the lower strata
of the atmosphere Into the higher regions and the consequent expansion
and loss of beat is the most probable
cause of rain, and It is not impossible
thai the air near the ground, being
made lo rise by being nrlllielully heated, might tend to produce the desired
downpour of rain.

It Is not often that estimates are given In years of the time thai has elapsed
since the appearance of early races of

Much attention in Scientific circles
Iihh lieen attracted by a recent lecture
by Prof. William Crookes on "Diamonds." Prof. Crookes made a special study of the diamond-mines of
South Africa, and his conclusion Is that
the gems found I here have been crystallized out of molten iron containing
carbon in solution, and at sufficient
depth below the surface to give great
pressure: but this is doing on a large
scale what Molssan. the French chemist, bus succeeded in doing ou a small
mule. Moisson makes microscopic diamonds by dissolving curiam In Iron,
and causing tbe crystals to form under
pressure. The chief difference appears
to lie ill size ami capacity of the laboratory, iu which regard nature has a
vast advantage,
Dr. Von l.lebig of the University of
Munich calls attention, III Science, lo
some of the curious effects of rarefied
nnd of condensed air on human respiration, on high mountains some
persons experience distressing "shortness of breath," one result of which ls
that they are unable to whistle. Precisely the same effect Is sometimes
produced by (he condensed air in caissons and diving-bells. Laborers working lu compressed air frequently find.
however, that their powers of exertion
are Increased as long as the atmospheric pressure Is not more than double that of ordinary air; but beyond
thnt point unpleasant effects are experienced after the men have left the
working shafts and returned Into the
open air. On the other hand high atmospheric pressure In the case of persons not doing manual labor lias been
found to act us a mental stimulus, increasing the Impulse to talk.
Klectrieal Power in America.
John Ilognrt, one of the American
engineers connected with the work of
completing the Niagara Pnlls electrical
power works, fives to tbe Pall Mall
Cassette of   London   some Interesting |
facts in regard to electrical power In I
America.    The Niagara company furnishes an electrical horse-power of 10,-
000 with a cpnclty for 10,000, and possibilities of increasing lo any extent
needed.   The works cost {0,000,000, It
having been necessary to construct a
tunnel 7,000 feet long ut it considers- |
ble depth and through solid rock.    Of I
Ihe Utility of the work the fact that j
Buffalo nnd Niagara City ure supplied
al the rate of $20 per horse-power per
annum, while   In   souk-   cases    nearly
$100 per horse-power has been paid, is
sufficient evidence.   Next to the electl'l- ���
cal works at Niagara are those at Sault j
Ste. Marie, and according lo Mr. Hogurt j
Ihe greatest of all are In construction
about sixty miles from Montreal, near
the town of Musseua, N. ��., close to j
the St. Lawrence River,    The power
will be obtained from a full of forly 1
feet  between the southern  brunch of
the St. Lawrence River aud a  small
placid stream known as tiruss River.
A canal of a little  more than  three j
miles iu  length is in process  of con- !
struction   and   when   the   works   are
completed n  total of 75,000 electrical '���
horse-power can be furnished. 11 seems
a pity thai the attention of engineers I
hail  not sooner been directed  to this ;
point on the St. Lawrence, as In that ,
case probably the vicinity of Niagara
Palls would not have been given over
to manufacturing and thus become ti
grent  Industrial  center, as II   will  in ,

Strikes Often Successful.
Figures nre seldom entertaining, but
there Is food for serious thought in the
bulletin recently sent out by Commissioner Carroll D. Wright bearing upon
��� the labor situation iu the United States.
From this otliclnl document it appears
that more than 1,600 strikes have occurred in the United States since 1879, involving nearly 40(1,000 laborers and
costing several millions of dollars.
What  is  even   more  significant  than
: the above figures, however, Is the per-
1 centnge of these strikes which have
been successful. In a tabulated statement Commissioner Wright sets forth
the exact number of strikes which have
occurred annually in the United Stntes
i since 1870. It .appears that from only
thirty-two    strikes In 1870, Involving
1 some 4,000 men, women and children,
j the record hus grown to a yearly aver*
: age of 1".0 strikes, involving some 25,-
000 operatives.   In other words, the dls-
1 content of the laboring masses of the
country has Increased sis-fold during
. the past eighteen years. As to the result of these various strikes. Commissioner Wright shows thnt 11 large ]>er-
centage of them In recent years have
either succeeded In whole or In pnrt.
During the first three-quarters of the
period, however, tbe demands of labor
secured but little recognition nt the
bands of capital, and only 16 per cent.
i of the strikes occurring between 187!)
and 1891 succeeded; 43 per cent, being
only    partially    successful and 41 per
, cent, total failures. Since that time
belter results have been achieved.
Co-operative Wholesale Society.
A new department has been opened
' by the English Co-operative Wholesale
1 Society for the purpose of making ad-
! vunccs of capital to its federated so-
, cietlcs, to be lent by them to their Indl-
vidua)   members  for the purchase of
cottages, the deeds of the property pur*
chased to be deposited with the whole,
sale society.   Advances will be made
to the extent of throe-fourths of the total cost of the properties, nnd the so
cletlcs will lie responsible for the repayment of the advances    by    equal
quarterly Installments of principal and
Interest, spreud over a period not exceeding twenty years.
Sometimes Benefit Employer*.

A Correspondent  Urge*  the   Attracting
of Pleasure Bookers Iliilicr.
Editor News:���If you can alTord the
space, permit me to call thc attention
of the public at large, or rather that
portion which reside in West Kootenay
to the importance of making some
preparations towards diverting the
stream of tourists'whieh annually cross
the continent on health and pleasure
bent, this way.
A little agitation on the subject and
way and means may be devised whereby a considerable portion of these
sight-seeing and money-spending people would pass over the different railway and steamer Hues, visiting the
many towns and points of interest.
There are few sections of the globe
where grander scenery can be viewed.
Few places can be found where the climate is better in the proper seasons,
and as for health, where can the life
giving force of nature to bo found hero
be eclipsed?
From a financial point of view, tour-
iKt travel, through a country liko this
is not only a mine of wealth but a mint.
Every one participates in the benefits,
from thc humblest boot-black to the
wealthy merchant.
Many tourists are liable to Investigate the resources ol a country through
which they are traveling and make investments.
Surely there Is overyt hlng here for
their amusement or diversion that a
beneficient nature could bestow.
Should they tire of scenery they can
can visit mines, concentrators and
smelters, all of which would be instructive and entertaining.
The matter of transportation Is settled. The country is now almost a net
work of railways. Palatial and swift
steamers ply the lakes and rivers.
Handsome and well furnished hotels
exist in every town and city, so wha t
Is to prevent the proper effort being
put forth so as to secure this floating
population and profit by its wealth each
season?
The method of securing It is simple.
Advertise by the proper means���pamphlets and folders distributed at
places where they will meet the eye of
pleasure seekers.   Kaslo  now  has  a
board of trado���should they not take
the Initiative? There is sufficient literary talent in the country to prepare
the descriptive matter.
The expense, oh yes, the expense,
this matter must not be overlooked.
Tho transportation companies get the
first and last benefits from the tourists.
They bring them into the country and
they take them out. These corporations would most assuredly "assist if approached properly. Hotel proprietors
are the next beneficiaries, they are
naturally helps; bo on along the  line.
I offer these as suggestions and start
the ball. Will others koop it rolling?
Randalll H. Kemp.
Takou, Not Yukon.
A typographical error in Charlie
Wright's Telegraph creek letter last
week, which escaped the attention of
the proof reader made a sentence read
the "Yukon route strikes the Teslin
lake at the samo point as this trail, but
from what 1 can hear, the Yukon Inlet
will give a good doal of trouble." The
indulgent reader will please substitute
Takott for Yukon, in the above and thus
straighten out the geographical kinks.
Tlie proof reader has helped load ice
on a steamer in Takou inlet In July
and ought to be sent below to shovel
coal for his ogrogioiis blunder. Our
informant furnishing the correspondence says: "There is no Inlet that I
know of called Yukon Inlet. A great
many routes exist to the< Yukon: the
Skaguay, the Chilcoot, the Dalton trail
and the St.Michael's,(whichcouldmoBt
properly bo called the Yukon route,)
the Fort Edmonton, and tho Takou following up the inlet and river of that
name. This latter one has beon examined by a company of railway engineers and favorably reported upon. . It
is however unfavorably spoken of by
Mr. Ogilvle on account of the number
of living glaciers, which often extend
to the foot of the mountains, soraotimes
discharging into the salt water, and
render the construction along their
foot  an Impossibility."
CROW'S  NEST  I.AHOKKRH.
Have Been Well Treated Notwithstanding
Reports to tlie Contrary.
Toronto, Nov. If).���The Mall prints a
special from Lethbridge denying the
truth of the charges of unfair treatment of navvies on the Crow's Nest
Pass railway. Only a few men from
the neighborhood i f Ottawa claim to
be in any way misled, and these were
apparently misled by an unauthorized
agent. Some English immigrants of
the clerk class, atiJ unused to manual
labor, came there and being overtaken
by sickness, Manager of Construction
Planey sent them back Kast free. The
correspondent denies lhat there is any
truth in the story of slavery and oppression.

Five Advertising Points.
It ts as easy lo spoil a good ad as It ls difficult
to write one.
Poor advertising succeeds oftencr than good
advertising fails.
Genial warmth ln an advertisement will thaw
out the purses of readers.
Change the advertisement often and each
time let it be a change for the better.
Time Is economy, but the people who have
most time km least money, and those who
have most money have least time: so concentration is necessary in an advertisement.
