Machine Which Wrltea Kntlre Word*
at One Stroke of the Plasters.
Business men :uul stenographers will
(mil wtfib delight the Invention of n
typewriting machine which can be so
manipulated as to
print words entire
wlili one stroke
of the fingers Instead of the old
method of spell-
l n g each word
out. The machine
is i u t e n d e d to
lake the phut' of

luuid wrltlng.ii.nd

in the ordinary
typewriting nm-
��� sAMiM.Koi'wiiitK. chines speed Is
limited by the fact that but oiu> key
can lie operated ut a time and only one
character printed.
The Inventor saw that If several lingers could be used at the time time, as
on the piano, to select the letters for
a word, ami the word printed at a sin-
gleatroke, suffloiemt speed could bo gotten to take speeches from dictation
direct on machines Instead of using
shorthand, He then constructed a machine after this Idea. It Is a very small
nffuir. weighing only two nnd one-half
pounds, occupying n space only st.x
Inches square, nnd can lie placed In a
Bass two Inches deep.
In this Invention the operator can
bring Into play nny or all of twenty
keys without changing the position of
the luimis for any combinations,
There nre sixteen keys which He next
to one another, within the four outer
keys. On these are printed all the lot*
ten and Characters thnt are to.he printed. If any of these keys are
struck without touching another
of    the    outer    ones,    It    will    print

the letter or character which la marked on the end nearest the operator.
When It Is desired to print uny of the
letter* on the second line, It can be
dime by pressing at the same time one
of the outer keys, which are marked
"con's line 2" or "vow's line 2."   This
brings forwurd either the consonants or
rowels. The same Is true of line three.
The figures u,re printed by using tho
lingers of the right hand, While pressing a lever at tlie left of tlie head of
the machine.    Tlw sixteen keys are so
arranged that they can be operated in
jailrs, so thnt one linger can press down
eltlier one or Until keys of each pair.
The machine cannot do accurate spoiling, nor will the wriitng do for correspondence, but phonetic spoiling can l>e
dome and It,la possible at each stroke
to print the greater part of n wonl If
not the whole of It. Tlie Inventor has
made several of these machines and
placed I hem for use in business offices.
Tlwse operating then are able to write
100 words a minute.
The principal al vantage this machine
has Is Its speed, and If not accurate
the Words are more easily read than If
written in shorthand, It OU bo used
to advantage In taking speeches for tho
press and other matter that Is turned
into an office Just before tilic paper goes
to press. In this ease a good compositor could get up the matter from its
record. Tlie record is printed on a narrow slip, ns shown by tiic accompanying cut. The letters read across tlie
slip from left to right. Many of the
words are spelled phonetically, but
their meanings are obvious. The letter
Jn the lllumt rait lorn translated In long
hand runs as follows: "If you could
make It convenient to call at the Sun
ofllno to-morrow night, Thursday, I
shall be glad to see you."
ft la to Span  the   Mlaalaalpnl   Above
, New Orlcuna,
E. L. Cortliell, chief engineer, and
K. II. Connor, assistant engineer, have
just completed the drawings and stud-
leu for a bridge so remarkable that It
will attract general attention throughout the civilized world. It Is to span
the Mississippi River at Twelve Mile
l'olut, between four and live miles
above New Orleans.
This bridge Is to be a railroad structure, double tracked, connecting nil
Uiws on the oust and west banks of the
liver, it will be when the river Is n.t
Its highest, 83 feet fnrni the water's
surface. At the point When water
meets the land, the height of the rail
will be 100 fetit above the earth. At
each end of this great structure, the
approach Will lie (1.580 feet long, the
grade being l.B per cent. The length of
the structure between pton will i>e
2,280 feet. The length from approach
to approach, the points referred to being those farthest from the shore, win
be 10,400 feet, a total length of nearly
three miles,
Perhaps the mnst Interesting feature
of   the  bridge   from    an    engineering
standpoint is the great length of clear
s|mn  required,   1,000  feet.    This   fact
must be considered carefully, because
only when t.hU Is u</> case can the greu.t
task  that  confronts  the  engineers  tie
appreciated, owing to the character of
the river bed. The bed of the Mississippi IMver ut this point, and the
ground fur on each side, Is all alluvial
material upon sand.   Tin- ground over
which the approaches puss Is made entirely of river deposits. Horings to tlie
depth of over n thousand feet have
been made In New Orleans, nnd nothing encountered except loam, sand, and
some shallow layers of clay.
The bod of the MLss/irislppI a few foot
below the surface is of clean sand. On
either side and beneath the sites or tiu?
proposed approaches, liorings have been
made BOO fi^rt deep,    Fifty feet N'low
low wn.ier mark, clean sand was found
which grew coarser us the depth of the
borings increased   it la upon this sort
of n bottom that the foundations of this
tremendous structure must rest.   The
shore piers will rc��t on pneumatic caissons sunk 100 foot below low water
mark. The piers arc to be constructed
of what Is colled granite face stones
and concrete bucking.
An excellent Idea of the Immensity
of the Structure can be gained from the
fact that the total height of the river
plan from the liases of the caissons to
the top of tlie ornament DO the titiss-
post will lie 750 feat The approach
spans i��f the bridge are to lie Supported
uiMin steal lowers ��f enormous tensile
strength. The total length of the lrw
structure will be 10,084 foot, n lei rth
of this sort of which no bridge In the
world can ixmst.

BIG  REDWOOD SLAB.
Appeals to OotniROii   Sense.
iii controversies on mooted questions,
When nil arguments seem to fall, we
often hear appeals made to common
sense, as If that at least must bo aliha
In every one, nnd superior In authority
to every line of reasoning,
But the truth Is thnt sense of every
kind, common or uncommon, must be
ulllisl with reason, or It loses Its significance.
There may be no conscious process
of reasoning going on, but tt always
accords with reasonable omchisioiis���
so reasonable, In fact, that they are
often colled self-evident.
It Is rather a matter of extent than
of kind, and Its limits are those of ordinary m itit ters.
It iniiy be called one degree of reason���that degree to which most men
can attain, and without which they
would lie Considered most unreasonable.
It does not aim to enter the arena of
philosophy or bj km illation; it does not
ex|>ent to solve the problems which tax
the highest powers of tlie human mind;
but It does enable u man to manage bis
own affairs with some intelligence, to
prevent his making himself ridiculous,
to guide his Conduct In relation to bis
follow-men, to Judge with some approach to correctness, and to decide
with some wisdom In matters common
to all, or In those more especially connected with his own pursuits.

Tob'e of It.
The norinan ship Maria Ilnckfleld,
lending at Sun r'runclsoo for London,
took on board a few days ago a unique
piece of cargo consigned to Mr. William Waldorf Astor. It was an Immense
piece of redwood, a cross section of one
of the big trees of California, and It
measured 14 feet 4 Inches In diameter.
There was not the slightest blemish lu
the great block, and extraordinary precautions hud been taken to prevent its
being Injured In Its journey BOfOSS the
ocean. Thick and heavy wire cables
were bound about its outer rim and
planks had been placed at the top and
bottom of the slab to prevent the possibility of Its being split while loading
and unloading.
The slab Is about three feet thick. It
was brought from the lumber woods lu
the steamer National City, nnd the
Sermon ship's hatchway just gave the
big section a piny of one Inch as It was
being lowered Into the hold. This piece
of redwood was cut from one of the
many glum trees in Humboldt County,

The origin of the phrase, "At sixes

Is probably traceable to the fact that if

A Peep Into Al'riou.
The eastern coast of Africa was as
unknown region In Marco Polo's day.
and when he had traveled so far to tho
southern end of Asia that he began to
get glimpses of Africa, he could no; believe that he beard reports from the
eastern side of that continent���of whirl
he already knew something, us it formed the southern border of the Mediterranean Sen. So he speaks of Madagascar (which be calls Mndclgascnr) nnd
Zanzibar (which lie culls Zanghlbor) as
though they were parts of India. II
we remember that Marco was the firm
writer, European 0* Asiatic, to mention Madagascar by tlmt mime, and almost the first to give the world any In
formation concerning that unknown
land, we may excuse the fact that 'all
geography Is sometimes mixed. Bui
lis descriptions if the iieople und the

accurate, as may be seen:

Tho Slirop of l.cimiioii.
Hurry Fenn, the nrtlst, has written
for Ht   Nicholas an account of his visit
to the ruinous cedars   of   Lebanon,
which place Is also noted for Its silk.
Mr. Fenn says: Wherever a handful of
enrth can be made to rest upon u ledge,
there a mulberry plant grows. It Is n
picturesque and thrilling sight to see a
boy lowered by a roiw over the precipice, carrying a big basket of earth
nud cuttings of mulberry twigs to plant
lu his hanging garden. The crop of
leaves, fodder fur the worms, Is gathered lu the same wuy. By such patient und 'dangerous Industry lui.e
these hardy mountaineers been able
to make their wilderness of rock bios-.
sum Into bright colored silks. Not i
single hat' Is left on the trees by the1
time the voracious worms get ready to
spin their cocoons, but a second crop
comes on later, und a curious use Is
made of that.

feed It; and It Is no uncommon sight
to see a woman going out to make tin

The Flrat Americana.
That account of the origin of the
name America which says that It was
derived from Amerigo Vespucci, a Florentine merchant, who visited the newly
discovered continent several years after Columbus' first voyage hns been
disputed on the ground thnt, on his
fourth voyage, OolnfflbUS found a Central American tribe of natives bearing
the name of "Anierlqiies," and that his
associates designated the country by
the name of these Indians. On the
other hand the existence of the Amer-
iques hus been doubted. Recently,
however, the descendants of the ancient Amerlques hnvc been found
dwelling in Honduras, and M. A. Pin-
art, a French explorer, has studied
their language and Investigated their
relations to other native tribes. But, of
course, the discovery of the existence
of the Amerlques does not prove that
the inline of America was derived from
them.
Queer Things About Fishes.
Mr. A. E. Verrill describes the ways
In which fishes sleep. They are very
light sleepers, and freqeuntly assume
singular positions; but the most re*
umrkable thing Is the change of color
many of tbom undergo while asleep.
Usually their spots aud stripes become
darker and more distinct when they
fall asleep. Occasionally the pattern
of their coloration Is entirely changed.
The ordinary porgy, for Instnnce, presents In the daytime beautiful Iridescent hues playing over Its silvery sides,
but at night, on falling asleep, It takes
on a dull bronze tint, nnd six conspicuous black bands make their appearance
on Its sides. If it Is suddenly awakened by the turning up of the gas In the
uqtinrlum It Immediately resumes the
silvery color that It shows by daylight.
Mr. Verrill nserlbes these changes to
the principle of "protective coloration,"
and points out that the appearance of
black bands, nnd the deepening of the
spots, serve to conceal the fish from
their enemies when lying amid eel-
grass and sen-weeds.
BATTLE BETWEEN HORSES.
ICntci lnioilin- Yarn Soberly To d by a
Cavalry Captain.
A cavalry officer related the following story of a pitched battle of horses
In the far West:
"Just nt sundown, nnd while we wore
at supper, a drove of wild horses, numbering nearly 100, emerged suddenly
from Thatcher's l'ass and deployed on
the level ground of the valley.
"They emerged from the pass In sln-
glo file, led by u spotted stallion, whose
uiaue reached almost to tils knees, und
whose tall touched the ground when ho
was at rest.
"Of tho remainder of the herd, about
thirty were fine animals, Threo or four
were recognised ns cavalry horses
which had been abandoned on tho
march, and twice thnt number had collar marks to prove that they had stampeded from some Immigrant train.
"When clear of the pass, they formed
in line and marched upon us within a
quarter of a mile. We bad seventy-five
horses at the lariat pens, nnd for half
an hour we bad all we could do to prevent a stampede. Every animal seemed enraged at the sight of the free
herd, and the captain's Kentucky stallion acted as If possessed by a fiend.
"At last we drove the free herd down
the valley, but our horses continued
very restless all night At dawn the
wild horses again appeared a mile below us, and, on the Instant, every animal In camp stampeded. Tbcy broke
through the free herd In a solid wedge.
Then the two herds turned, facing each
other, at a distance of about three-
quarters of a mile.
"Then we witnessed something which
only a cavalryman will credit Our
horses fell Into double line and dressed
to the right as perfectly as If a trooper
bad occupied each saddle, and, while
we looked, the lines suddenly moved
forward on a charge. When they swept
past us the alignment was absolutely
perfect, wit lithe captain's horse on tns
right, and leading by about twenty
feet.
"The line of wild horses bent nnd
wavered, but did not break until
struck. It was like striking a drumhead with a sledge-hammer. 1 believe
thnt fuliy forty horses went down under the shock, but all Except four were
speedily on their feet again.
"From this tlme.oii It was a melee,
the whole drove hireling round, and
each horse biting and kicking and displaying such ferocity as to astoulsh us.
The mob fought past us down the valley and back, and right In front of the
camp the climax enme.
"The battle had been raging half an
hour when the spotted stallion hobbled
out of It on three legs and bleeding
from half n dozen wounds, and that
seemed to take the pluck out of his followers. Some rnn up the valley and
some down, but of the eighty-eight only
fifty-seven got away.
"When the hottest of It was over we
dashed In and secured a horse here nnd
there, and In this manner we finally
got hold of the last one, which was the
captain's.
"Of the seventy-five only five hnd escaped scot free. Every one of the
others had been bitten and kicked, and
twelve of thein were so crippled us to
be worthless.
"There were seven dead and thirty-
six crippled horses on that battlefield
when hostilities censed, and of the
fifty-seven wild horses which made
their escape, tunny were limping bad-
iy."

had a north and south diameter of
some 700 miles���very much larger than
any of the five great lakes of the present time. Lake Agasslz was funned in
this way: The great Ice sheet which
came down from the north was a series of greal glaciers. For these there
were three principal areas of distribution. The llrst was In Labrador, the
second In the highlands west of the St.
Lawrence river and south of Hudson's
bay, the '.iilril the mountain ranges of
Britisi, Coin tub la.   These three greet
floor of lee reached their maximum extent nt different times. The Klwattl
glacier swept down over Manitoba Into
the upper Mississippi valley Into Minnesota, and probably down ns far as
Iowa; then It commenced to retreat;
and while It was retreating, the great
Lnurentlnn glacier from Labrador was
coming In from the east. There came
a time when the Klwattl glacier formed n northern dnm and the Laurenthin
glocler an eastern dnm, the two standing uearly nt right angles) and In this
great dammed up spnee wns formed
Lake Agassis. It rose until it could
overflow the bnnier to the south, nnd
thus discharge Into the Mississippi
river by means of n river which has
now entirely disappeared, and was
known as the River Warren, after the
late (lenerill George K. Warren, who
first discovered It. This lake continued
until the glaciers up there, retreating,
ono to the northward and the other
to the eastward, separated and left a
space between them. Then the drainage way to Hudson's bay was opened
again, nnd the Inks wns very rapidly
drawn In that direction. We can find
perfectly well the old bench line aud
the old drainage outlets by which this
drainage of Lake Agassis was completed. The old terraces and beaches are
there to-day, and the level bottom of
the lake la clearly shown. The whole
history of the lnke hns been made out
with perfect clearness and deflnlte-

Bones In a Silver Vein.
If the ltod of a Colorado silver miner, made half a dozen years ago, be
taken into account, there Is but little
doubt that the human race existed on
this continent as long ago as the time
when the silver veins were to process

mine, at i.tlman, 400 feet below the
surface, a number of human bones
were found Imbedded In the silver-

bones. An arrowhead made of tempered copper and four Inches long, was
also found with the renin Ins.

peppered his tracks. The dog almost died

KASLO, FOR HOMES.
To tho miner, the artisan, the merchant, the professional man to all
to whom the word home appeals- it i-
a pleasure to be able to announce that
Kaslo has the making of a model home
city. Its real estati rates are neither
speculative nor prohibitory. Us building materials are (plentiful,, good and
cheap, [ts cost of the necessaries and
luxuries of lire arc reasonable and are
yearly growing more so; while pure
air. pure water ami a genial climate
are free.
[ta public school system���in the past
hampered by tlie easy going movements
of a government thai sould not realize
how fast it* Inland town-, were growing promises to he greatly improved
In the near future, [ta Bocial conditions are daily becoming more settled,
ami already It la a city to which no one
need hesitate to bring his family to
grow up with the country.
Beautiful home sites abound, opportunities for business ami tirade are
unexcelled,. The mountains around as
are pouring an apparently Inexhaustible stream of metallic wealth through
our gatea and much of it is bound to
fall Into our coffers. Towns like Sandon above us are undoubtedly good [or
bualuess, but the business men ami
their families will undoubtedly make
towns like this their hornet.
I tesources are daily developing on every side which ore bound to build up
here a city of great commercial Importance,   'i'n" possibilities ol heavj
and steady pAJ rolls that  are  seen   on
every hand are continuously developing. Kaslo Is the place for n man to
come an I bring hi - family, if he has
ii little money, plenty of energy und a
desire tn enjoy life in a 'sensible and
reasonable fashion.
KOOTENAY'S CLIMATE.
It Is only by contrast thai people are

And one need only glapcs at there-
ports of the terrible effecta of the hot
weather of the last week in New York,
Chicago, St. Louis * Incinnati and surrounding territory to realize how ineffably bleel an thej who live by Koote-
nay's rl] , lit! waves and gentle
breeze-.
Two thousand people prostrated nnd
3S0 killed from effects of the heat is
the reoent terrible record to the eastern stittos. And it kept up day und
night. In the northwest wc may occasionally haw fliyi of dry warm
weather. Tiie mercury was A ������

Man's ingratitude to man is mournful to contemplate. Kaslo'a baseball
cranks are a unit in declaring thai Umpire Dodd, while doubtless having the
fairest intentions, unconsciously gave
his Spokane homo team a little the
host of his rulings all the way through.
Yet, when with such an advantage, tho
Spokane team failed to win out, they
pounced upon thc.littlo man and abused
him like a pickpocket The Spokane
team has never mastered the essential
difference between "meuin" and
"tuum." Their ox is gored now and
they howl. Umpire Dodd is all right.
He is a gentleman and understands
baseball.
It. is amusing to ono behind tho
scenes to read the gravely written-up
articles, thinly veiled as news, in the
dailies of the Northwest regarding the
doings of this or that noted mind reader or trance medium. If tho public realized that these art ieles were paid for
at, the rate i.f from ten totwenty oents
per line, the gullible portion of it
would not be falling over each other in
a frantic effort tO buy several dollars
worth of second-sight.
Query; How could the Spokane
baseball team claim a game on forfeit
from Rossland, on Wednesday afternoon at 3:15 o'clock when its members
took the morning train for home that
same day? Do not the rules of the game
require a presence on the baseball
ground in uniform at the specified time
accompanied by an umpire before the
game can be claimed on forfeit?

About Olden Times.
His Honor, Lieutenant Governor of
the Prov'nce Edgar Dewdney arrived
in Kaslo from Rossland Tuesday evening and will spend several days here
und in the Slocan roe-ion looking over
the mining interests. While in Rossland a banquet was tendered by the
i itlzi ns oi that c.'ty lo him, Liouteiv
ant-Govenor Mackintosh of the Northwest Ter.i itoi'les and Provincial Min.
oraloglst Cai'lyle,aJl of whom happened
io be in Rossland at the same time.
Gov. Dewdney is a hale and hearty
old gentleman of perhaps 65 years, ami
a line specimen of British manhood.
This is his second visit to Kaslo. the
first being lust February, when ho
made a flying tour through here and,
between the darkness of his late arrival and early departure,and the snov
covering, did pot sec much ol Kaslo
then. Re expressed himself as much
plea ed with the city which be Bam to
.: ood advantage this time.
[u Pioneer Days.
Hut Gov. Dewdney is by no means a
stranger to this region in genera), as
ho was hero 32years ago in connection
with his construction of the famous
Dewdney trail. He Is a pioneer of pioneers. In the capacity of his proles-
iton .'i- civil engineer under Gov. Seymour, he superintended the construction of 201 miles of trail at a cpsl of
$74,000, to open up und develop tin. resources oi southern and eastern British
('olumbia. And earlier yet, or .'17 years
ago, he constructed 8fl miles of trail
fifiiii Ft, Hope to the Slmilbameen
river.
In I8(i."), while looking for a possible
outlet to the Ft. Steel, or Wild Horse
country us it was Giro known, he
skirted the shores of the present site
of Kaslo in an Indian canoe. Paddling
down to the hot springs on the pn sent
site of Ainsworth, ho discovered Diok
Fry, the old time trapper and trailer,
engaged with a group of his half breed
children in throwing stones at a mark.
i\. ,m him much Information and
Showed him the notable features of tho
country, Including the ledge where
the Indians kndoked off lead enough to
mold their bullets from, on the sitooi
th v famous Blue  Bell   miite near
Pi] ������. Bay. The Indians called th
place hi chinook jargon, "bijv- ohioa*
min."
Allof these things the Oovei nor cordially recalled and talked over  with a
News representative on .th ilngof
his arrival, and evidently dwell with
pleasure upon the old times in which
be took such an active part. The Internationa] boundary lines weie rather
shadowy then, and the British over-
Is ipi : Into the United States as far
south as Ft. Colvllle, south of the old
Hudson,Bay'8 post of Ft. Shoppard.
i..;.-, r, when customs matters b ' '���' to
be looked after, II became necessary
for men with pack fains to either carry with them a customs i fflcor o r in
the risk of the oontiscs ion ol fcbeir
trains. Thi- ii o to :; s eonsti ictton of
the Dowdnoy trail almost entirely in

< tolumbill in 1857,   and    mined   00  i!ie
i' '.'I aVOreiUe  m ar  Waneta,
the Columbia frpm  Fnrt   Sheppftrd,
Thi n other discoveries (oIIqwi d period-
caily l.oholp keep up the Bpirlts of the
comparatively small population. IVn.-
sor river diggings Vrera found in 1868,
and drew a large number of people
from California. Then Caribou was
di.-cuvi red in i860, Wild Horse erect:.
now Port Steele, in 1884j Big Bend In
I860, Bridge river in 1800, Cassiar Is
1868, what was known as Peace river
mines In 1870���thus showing that, alluvia] diggings extended in districts from
Fence river to tho Rocky mountains.
Ti���� Fort Steele Country.
The governor has recently returned
from Fast Kootouay and expresses
himself as much pleased with the outlook for that section of the province.
He is satis lied that, tho Crow's Nest
Pass railway will bo pushed rapidly
and expects to see the Fort Steele country profiting directly by it within tho
present year. Tho miues, both placer
and deep diggings are looking well.
Sometimes, however, development is
slower than anticipation as was illustrated by the following anecdote which
the governor related with amusement:
"A man named Brown came up from
Spokane to the new town of Wardner
to start a daily paper. After he bad
unloaded himself and his plant from
the steamboat, he concluded that this
must just, bo tho landing place. Catching sight of a man with a team and
wagon he hailed him and asked "How
much will you take to carry mo and
this stuff over to Wardner?" "This
is Wardner," was the man's reply.
Grown Is content to run a weekly for
tho present.
Preparing t<> Pr.ip onico
The governor parried all questions
of a political nature both Dominion
and Provincial, evidently preferring
to discusB early local history.
When asked if ho wished to express
an opinion on i.ho Companies' Act, he
answered, "Not now, Thepeppli maj
le ar from ini'uliuut that after November 1st." Intimating that he was
looking forward with pleasure to the
end of his gubernatorial term when he
could once more freely and with propriety discuss public matters una private citizen,
To the suggestion thai his pioneer
experience! would make an interesting
book, he said that ho had received
various offers to write such a book, but
had bo Car never found timet ttiBto
be hoped that he niaj find such time,
for Buoh a rich fund of oxpe len i
should not, be lost t" the world.

Rossland, B. C��� July 10.���There Is n
big deal on foot here now which, It
consummated, will prove a great factor in deveioplng the Boundary country. Including Cascade City, Grand
Forks, Greenwood, Falrvlew and the
other western camps. It Is stated on
reliable authority that one of the big
railway corporations has made an offer to the owners of the townslte and
water power at Cascade City to purchase the absolute right to the magnificent water power at that point. It is
stated should the company secure the
power It will establish car shops and
terminal facilities at Cascade City and
develop the water power to such �� degree as to furnish ample power to the
mines of that whole district and light
cud heat to the many camps In that
country.
There seems to be some serious trouble, however, over the title, The owner; of the Cascade City townslte claim
to have had the right to the water power given them under their crown grant
and therefore assert their rights as
owners, while other parties at Vancouver and Victoria, who secured a charter last session, claim they are the sole
owners of the power. Unless this dispute Is settled in short order the whole
railway scheme will fall to the ground,
much to the detriment of the Boundary
mining Interests.
There Is a movement In this camp
among prospect and small mine owners
te concentrate their efforts. They realize at last that It costs a great deal
Of money to make mining pay In British Columbia, and are now willing to
consolidate their Interests for a small
cash consideration and a certain
amount of stock in large development
companies with ample capital. This
state of affairs was predicted last fall,
but the prophets found no honor at
that time. Money was then in plenty,
hopes ran high and every claim owner
expected to be wealthy before spring.
The consequences were prices were too
high and capitalists refused to Invest.
There is a much more healthy tone In
bus'ness now, although money Is scarce.
Prospect and mine owners are now
more reasonable and are actually selling heavy interests dally. English capitalists are arriving dally und sending
their experts to the hills right and
left with owners who arc reasonable in
their prices.

Trail, B. C, July 10.���Champion creek, '
above Trail, has not been noted for its ',
silver  values,   but   a   discovery   on   the
Bryan claim, recently located, seems to
establish the contrary. Sir Charles Ross '
rnd   his   attorney   control   this   claim.
The mineral Is In quartz.   No work has
been done.    The values so far have all
been found in surface rock,  but  they i
were sufficient, when  made known,  to
"rattle"   the  camp.     Prospectors   from
Trail  have already   started  for Champion creek to look up some more quartz
like the Bryan.   Tney believe the values there are in the quartz and not in
the Iron cap.   Sir diaries Is apt to take
hold of the Bryan  claim.    At least he
will see if it holds out with depth.
Deer Park, 40 miles above Trail, on
the east side of lower Arrow lake,  is
at trading attention.   Jack Robinson of
Trail has been sick here all spring and
summer und had to give away a portion of his claim, the Rob Roy, at Deer
Park, to get the assessment work done, i
In addition to the required work his as- i
sedates thought they would do a little i
more.   The result has been a find'n- n* I
steel galena with high values.    Colonel j
Topping thinks the values at Deer Park
will continue.

MURDER AT SALT LAKE.
Slocan City, B. C, July 8.��� The Enterprise mine, on Ten Mile creek, has
just completed a shipment of 1500 sacks
of high grade silver ore to the Omaha
Smelter, This makes over 100 tons ihus
far shipped by this mine. It will give
average assays of over 200 ounces of
silver and 25 per cent lead to the ten.
There are  now 40  men   employed on
the property, and Superintendent
George Aylard states that he is arranging to Increase the force to 100 men
at once. The mine Is worked by five
tunnels, one of which has been driven
over 600 feet. There are also shafts
In tunnels 2 and 3. While the ore body
Is not large, It holds its own steadily,
and has every appearance Of being permanent. Its width Is from six laches
to three and a half feet.
This vein was located In 1804 by R.
J. Klrkwurd, who says that It w.is
bonded to Finch & Co. in 1896 for $25,-
000. It Is now owned by John A. Finch
and Hyman & lirown of Colorado.
Mr. Klrkward has just visited the mine,
and from a recent Inspection believes
It to be easily worth a half a million today. It Is connected With Slocan lake
by a good wagon road, n dtStSBOS ..f
eight miles, and It Ib the Intention hereafter to make regular shipments.
W. H. McVay, president of the Lucky
George Mining Company, whose properties are on Lemon creek, came in from
Spokane and went at once to the mints.
The company now has a force of men
at work under Superintendent McDou-
gnld, late foreman of the Ruth mine
at Sandon. He thinks they have the
Black Prince lead, and is pushing development work as rapidly as possible.
The company has ample funds In the
treasury to work for several months.

John  I'.iinn  Found llend In the Alley

Salt Lake, July 11.���Early this morning the dead body of John Egan, former owner of the White House bar, was
found in the alley In the rear of the
Walker house. An examination showed a wound along the nose and middle
of the forehead. The body had evidently been dragged from the rear of some
of the buildings fronting on First
street. A thorough Investigation is being made.
During the afternoon three arrests
were made in connection with the murder. J. F. McMillan, night bartender
In Qulnlan & Osbori e's saloon, B.
Skewes and C. M. Phiilips were taken
In charge by the police, and are being
held, pending further developments In
the case.
The two latter were frequenters of
the sulinin, and the police believe these
men know more about the case than
they are willing to tell. The general
theory Is that Egan was assaulted In
the above named saloon and was removed to tiie alley where the body
was found. An Inquest will be held tomorrow.

Cleveland. July 11.���John D. Rockefeller has been sued in the common
pleas court here by James Corrlgan,
the vessel owner, for an accounting.
Corrlgan, who was In Rockefeller's
debt, gave the latter as collateral security, it Is asserted, 2500 shares of
Hlandard Oil stock. Later that stock
was credited to Corrlgan on his indebtedness. He now Insists that he was
not allowed what the stock was worth.
The petition is not on file In court,
but It is Bald the stock was credited
at the rate of $138 a share. It sold yesterday for $318. Corrlgan declined today to discuss It. He said he had
asked for an accounting, and when
asked the amount of his claim he said:
"I can not tell; I don't know how
much It will be. I contend only that I
was not allowed what the Btock was
worth. The Standard Gil Company
Is a trust and I was on the outside."

united him and his wife In marriage.
They were worshipers in his church.
Later Mr. Tilton became ossoclnted
with Mr. Beecher lu the editing of a
religious Journal.
In his bill of particulars Mr. Tilton
declared that his wife and Mr. Beecher
had made a confession of guilt to him.
To all the accusations of the plaintiff
Mr. Beecher nnswered with a sharp
denial. Mr. Tilton sued to recover
$100,000. The Jury was unable to agree
upon a verdict, nnd wns discharged.
In 1878 Mrs. Tilton wns excommunicated from Plymouth Church. Her
husband was forced out of the church

her. After the trial Mr. Tilton went tff

Three Celebrated Horses.
The moat celebrated battle steeds ol
the civil war were Cincinnati, Traveler
and Winchester, the favorite chargers
of Grant, Lee and Sheridan. When the
hero of Vlekshurg visited Cincinnati
a few months nfter the close of that
brilliant campaign he was requested to
visit a dying man who was exceedingly desirous of seeing him. When they
met the Invalid said:
"Gen. Grant, 1 wish to give you a
noble horse, who has no superior on the
Continent, as a testimony of my admiration for your character and past services to our country. There Is a condition attached to the gift���that you will
always treat him kindly."
Grant accepted the magnificent hay,
of course, faithfully keeping his promise, and named him Cincinnati. He
wns a son of Lexington, with a single
exception the fastest thoroughbred that
ever ran four miles on an American
course. The General was offered |10,<
000 for the horse, as he had a record of
speed almost equal to thnt of his famous half-brother, Kentucky. Cincinnati was a superb and spirited steed of
(Treat endurance, Grant riding him almost constantly during the Wilderness
campaign nnd pnsslng from end to end

The light station at Whlteflsh Point
wns first established In 1847. The old
dwelling Is standing yet, a queer old-
fashioned stone building, with a large
fireplace nt each end of the main part,
and one at the end of the small kitchen,
which extends back from the side and
Is flush with the end of the main portion. The small stone tower which
stood In front of this small building
was torn down when the present tower
and dwelling was built In 1802. During the season of 1895 the present
dwelling was rebuilt and made Into a
double house. The cut herewith shows
the building and tower, as they now
look. In February, 1800, an entirely
new outfit was placed In the tower,
which, though rated as a third order
light, is one of the strongest on the
lakes, and the first on the lakes which
floats and revolves on a bed of mercury. The burner Is a second order,
nnd with the new lens, Is about 40,000
candle power. The lens Is shaped like
a butter bowl, Is five feet In diameter
and stands on edge. The prisms are
arranged In circular form with a large
bullsJeye lu the center, which concentrates the rays and throws out a bright
light similar to a search light. The
table upon which the lens sits weighs
with lens, lamp, etc., over a ton, and
Instead of resting and revolving on
wheels, rests on a bed of mercury. It
makes a revolution every five seconds,
showing a bright white flash at each
revolution. The mercury pot Is made
double, and Is two and one-half feet In
d in meter by one foot deep. The upper
half Is bolted to the table, the lower
half holding about 100 pounds of mercury. A shaft extends down from the
table through the pot to the clockwork to steady and drive the table. The
clock-work Is run by a weight ol1 200
pounds, The first steam whistle at this
Station, wns placed about twenty-live
years ago.
The Dark Side of Christian America
"We huve now In America a population of 70,000,000 of people, and yet
three-quarters of a million, we nre told,
lielong the the criminal class," writes
Dwlght L. Moody, in his Initial paper
in "Mr. Moody's Bible Class," In the
Ladles' Home Journal. "And this In
Christian America. It Is said that In
six mouths thirty graduates of two
large European universities were fouud
by one rescue mission til New York
City. Nor nre the Amerlcnn colleges
without representatives in the great
city slums. Our dally papers nre but
a living chronicle of the fearful hold
which sin has upon us as a nation. A
man must have lost all his senses who
says that sin is not inherent, that It Is
only a physical weakness which culture may ultimately overcome. Veneering the outer man will make hliu uo
better within."

light looks us fresh and Inviting ns It
did nearly sixty years ago. Pew
changes have been made about the
place. A little whitewash now and
then has brightened up the exterior and
the yard and garden Is a mass of rose
bushes nnd flowering vines. It Is an
humble-looking house now, but it was
probably one of the best houses In Salem nt the time of Its construction.
Dr. Charles Hay, father of John Hay,
came to Indiana from Lexington. Ky.,
about the year 1825. He visited Cory-
don, in Harrison County, the old State
capital, and there married a Miss I.eon-
aril, daughter of one of the pioneer citizens of the State. About 1830 Dr. Day
moved to Salem. Washington County,
where he practiced his profession and
rendered valuable service to the people
of his adopted State during the cholera
epidemic of 1830. Though n stalwart
Whig, he had no political aspirations.
From ia34 to 1840 he, In company with
Itozal B. Child, Issued the Salem Monitor, a Whig paper. At the latter date
he resumed the practice of medicine.

���PhlladeljJida Times,
THE heroic little nation whlrh has attracted the attention of the whole world
by Its fearless action in I'r< >)e is really the mother of all the arts and scieuees
of modern times. Especially is the Greek the mother of the drama. Athens
was the seat of dramatic progress, and it was there that all the literary talent of
the nation was enlisted In its service. The arrangement of the theater and Its
origin is full of interest. It seems probable that its inception was a mere platform, with a sheet of cloth stretched up behind it for a sounding board, the spectators seating themselves as best they could. Then came a wooden theater, which
fell down In the year 500 B. C. It was replaced by a stone building at Athens soon
after the Persian war, and many of the other states followed her example. The
theater at Athens bad no roof. A semicircle of seats as an amphitheater was
traversed by radiating gangways. The lower rows were reserved for state dignitaries and the Judges who decided the merits of the play. Before them was a
semi-elliptic or semi-circular "orchestra," with an altar, called the thymele, In the
center. The chorus executed Its movements there, and during the acting took
definite places around the thymele. Behind this ait a greater elevation was the
proscenium, which may be described as in form a long, shallow box with an open
front The walls served for scenes, whether landscape or palace. The sides were
furnished with scenery painted on triangular prisms, called perlaktol, mounted
on vertical pivots, revolving as a change of scene was called for. The first scene
painter who applied the principles of drawing in perspective with light and share

demand tho payment of the
$10,000 In gold," said Miss Ma-
gruder, a little testily and quite
determinedly. "I owe this to my niece,
who Is about to be married. As you
know, I am her guardian, and I do not
wish to diminish her legacy by any
oversight on my part Just now, when
no one knows Just what effect a possible silver victory may have upon the
financial condition of the country.
Once married, her husband may do as
be likes."
"Very well, Miss Magruder," said
Cashier Holt "Your request will be
honored If for no other reason than to
show you that this bank Is amply able
to meet nil demands."
The lady whom he addressed as Miss
Magruder was a spinster of uncertain
age, regular features and n determined
and business like manner.
Cashier Holt, a middle-aged man
wltb Vandyke beard and curly flax-
colored hair, had tried vainly to demonstrate to his shrewd client thnt her
money would be safer In the vaults of
the bank than In her house.
Now he gave a whispered order to
the only clerk the bank afforded. The
latter turned an Inquisitive face upon
the spinster and her companion, a
pretty country girl of 20 summers.
When he returned from the vnult he
carried in his hand a leather satchel,
which he placed on the counter before
the cashier.
"Here are your ten thousand," said
Mr. Holt, whimsically. "Remember
my warning! ,Take good care of the
money!"
Miss Magruder was not so enstly satisfied. She opened the satchel, took
from It a buckskin bag and counted
the money, which wns In $50 coins.
Then she pushed It nil back, locked the
bag and left the bank, accompanied by
the clerk, who carried the satchel and
deposited It under the buggy seat. As
the ladles entered their conveyance
they were accosted by a tramp. The
fellow looked anything but prepossess,
lug, and Miss Magruder curtly denied
him aid.
During the drive from New Brunswick to the little hamlet which was
their home. Miss Magruder gave vent
to her annoyance over the cashier's
hesitancy to pay her niece's legacy In
gold. His warning against robbers
was especially distasteful to the spinster, who had never been afflicted with
fear of anything. Norn Wilson listened to her aunt lu silence. She wns not
at all Inclined to share her guardian's
confidence that their house was as safe
as the bank vnult; but out of deference
to the older woman she refrained from
expressing her opinion. Even when
the money wns safely stowed away
under Miss Magruder's bed, Nora felt
uneasy. When bedtime came she herself examined every window and door,
to see that It had been securely fastened by the servant. Anxious dreams
disturbed her slumber, which she woo-
ed In vain for a long time. In the middle of tho night the girl awoke wltb a
start. She was not certain nt first
whether her Imagination had played
her a trick, or whether she had really
heard a stifled noise In the next room.
She hearkened with bated breath, and
was soon convinced that what disturbed her were stealthy footsteps.
Without a moment's hesitation the
girl Jumped from her bed. A door led
from her room to her aunt's chamber,
but this she would not open. After all,
It might only have been the vivid play
of her Imagination, and she dreaded
- Miss Magruder's ridicule. So she unlatched the door that opened out Into
the corridor nnd groped her way to her
aunt's room.   It was ajar.
Nora Wilson scarcely breathed as she
listened. She could distinctly hear the
respiration of two persons. One breathed regularly and quietly, the other's
breath came lu short, stifled gasps. A
���weet, penetrating odor came from the
room. Then all her doubts were dispelled.
There was a robber In the room. He
was searching for the hidden gold.
Nora wns a courageous girl. She pressed her lips firmly together, advancing
carefully with outstretched arms. Almost Instantly she came In contnet
with a human body. The man���for It
was a burglar���clutched her around
the waist and held a sponge saturated
with chloroform to her nose. Nora
tried not to breathe to keep from Inhaling the noxious vapor. The girl's fierce
struggle made the burglar resort to
other means to overcome her. He dropped the sponge and plunged his hand
Into his breast pocket.
"He has a pistol and he is going to
kill me!" thought Nora. Quick as a
flash she seized his hand the moment
he withdrew It. Her fingers closed over
the handle of a large bowle knife, not
the butt end of a revolver.
The mnumuder dragged Nora from
the room, down the stairs and into the
lower corridor. There he hissed Into
her ear that he would kill her If she
made an outcry and did not release
the knife.   Gathering all hi* strength
he thrust her into the pantry, the door
of which stood wide open.
Miss Wilson mode no reply, but with
an almost superhuman effort attempted to wrench the weapon from him.
She succeeded !n clutching a few inches more of the long handle of the
knife, and the man uttered a terrible
oath. The blade had sunk Into his
hand. Snatching his left arm from her
waist, he struck her a fearful blow
with his fist.
Realizing that she could no longer
cope with the robbar, Nora turned
quickly and dashed past him toward
the door that led out into the yard.
It was open, but on the threshold the
girl stumbled and fell prone to the
floor. When she awoke a few moments
afterwards from the stupor caused by
the fall, two men were bending over
her. They were grappling, and by
their voices Miss Wilson recognized
In one of them her aunt's gardener.
The girl, brave as ever, came to his
assistance.
Their combined cries for help
brought one of their neighbors to the
scene of the struggle. The marauder
was soon overcome, and when the servant maid appeared with a lamp, Nora
and the gardener recognized In him the
tramp who had accosted them In the
afternoon In front of the bank.
"Take him to prison," commanded
Miss Wilson. "My aunt and I will lodge
complaint against him In the morning."
While the two men carried off their
prisoner, Nora hurried to her aunt's
room. By this time the effect of the
chloroform had disappeared, and Miss
Magruder was acquainted with the
events of the night. The little satchel
with its precious contents was moved
a considerable distance from where it
had originally been placed, nnd the
spinster admitted that the cashier was
right after all In admonishing her as
he did. To relieve herself froni further responsibility she sent for her
niece's betrothed early In the morning.
In the meantime the prisoner had a
preliminary hearing before the Judge.
Miss Wilson deposed that she had met
the man lu the afternoon; that he had
seen the sntchel which they carried
from the bnnk, stowed away under
the buggy seat. She then narrated
her struggle with the Intruder and his
final arrest by a neighbor and her
aunt's gardener. The latter corrolw-
rated her statement. The prisoner
firmly declared his Innocence, even In
the face of these grave charges. He
denied having struggled with the
young lady In her aunt's room, and
said that he had sought shelter In Miss
Magruder's woodshed for the night.
When he heard Miss Wilson's cries for
help, he thought a fire had broken out,
and rushed from the shed to aid lu
suppressing It.
Without a word Nora Wilson pointed to the prisoner's right hand, which
wns baiulaged with a dirty rag. The
Judge understood her meaning and
asked the tramp how he had Injured
his band.
His answer wns that he had cut
himself with an ax, as he cleared the
was noticeable. It came from the
clothes of the cashier.
"Oh, .Tames!" cried the girl, still pale
and nervous from her terrible experience of the night.
"My nniiie Is Cliff," said James. "I
am Miss Wilson's fiance. Permit me to
lead her to yonder couch. She Is not
well. A little rest will soon restore
her."
Holt \yas not Inclined to grant the
request to admit the two young people
to the back room without opposition.
"It's against the rules of the bank,"
he remarked stubbornly.
James Cliff paid no attention to him,
but pushed the door open and led the
young girl to the leather sofa In the

bank room. Nora was far from fainting. Her mind had never worked more
quickly and to the point. A sudden
suspicion that not the tramp, but another tried to rob them of her fortune
flashed through her brain. There was
the odor of the chloroform, and besides the cashier held his hand concealed lu his coat pocket.
"What Is the matter with your hand,
Mr. Holt?" she asked.
"My hand? I sprained It last night
while trying to move a heavy piece of
furniture. I have been bathing It with
arnica and must keep It bandaged."
"Won't you let me see It?"
The cashier hesitated, but when he
pulled the hand from the pocket at
last, the bandage showed other stains
than those of arnica.
With a bound the girl stood before
him.
"This is blood, James," she cried.

the canyons, presi nting ;i Bertes of pictures thai nail forth expressions of delight from the ptfestinu'ers. After a
very pleasant ride of about ono and one
half hour,-, thi' town of Whitewater is
reached.
Tho history of Whitewater Is similar
(n many respects to all miulng camps.
It if: a story of good locations by poor
prospectors, tho purchasing of the
claims by men of menus, their development and then what, was once, a
straggling row of miners' shacks becomes in time u oity.
The story of Whitewater, us related
by W. II. Winstead, the well known
assayo.r is to the affect that the llrst
discoveries were made about Juno 1,
)892, when the Whitewater mine was
located by Messrs. McDonald, Campbell and u third party whose name be

small amount, nol io exceed 8600, und

the possessors. Then followed a series
of deals, until Anally J. C. Eaton ami
presumably ,lohn A. Flnoh (your correspondent is not suro of the latter)
secured the mine. This mini- is now
developed by bIj: tunnels whose entire
length ie 2,400 feet. It is a Bllver and
lead proposition and since October, 'i>6,
8250,000 worth of oio has boon shipped.
There Is no question hut that the
Whitewater lias the mint brilliant
prospects. Important changes are now
being made, on this mine, in the way
of new buildings, and as soon as they
are completed more men will be put
on. The average assay of the Whitewater ore Is i-ii ounces ill silver and 20
per cent lead.
The Whitewater, however, Is not tho
only mine in this district. There is

Mining News and Note of Interest
In Hit1 Way;
Continuing a record of hie obse va-
tions fi'inn last Issue, the News man
found a beautiful townslte well dotted
with handsome buildings, as the C. P.

very ribbons, reminibcent of the Vn-
nuiniti'.
But New Denver, while proud ot Its
Alpine scenery,.!* not forgetful ol the
bread and butter side of its existence.
It has long bo..ii ti favorite outfitting
and supply point for prospectors aud
miners. Anyone who wants a detailed
aoaount of its history and resources in-
oluding those.of tbs entl e Slocan Ljuke

120 ton concentrator is about to be
built, It will bo operated by water
power. This ore concentrates live into
one, the product carrying 123 ounces of
silver and 82 per cento lead. The property Is now owned by the Galena Minos
Company of London, having been sold
to them by C. W. < alluban. The other
mining properties mentioned are from
three to seven mileB distant from Silverton and employ from si.\ to forty
men each, the latter number toeing
employed nt the Wakefield in charge

New Denver, while p osperous, isnol
enjoying the monopoly of the lake
trade aa It once did, being now compelled to divide up witti near-by lake

to be to prove il self a desirable real-
detico town tor i nch mining camps as

Throe Forks and New Deaver Is lobe

somewhat, ol discrimination against
them by tho C. P. I!. Owing perhaps
to the fact thai the town   did  not offer
the company depot grounds and other
facilities the Nal:n-p & Slocjn branch
left the town about a mile to ono side.
However, the company has recently
placed a ticket agent at this station,
railed New Denver Siiilnyp, and fairly
good train servloc is thus secured.
Alining the rivals ol New Denver 011

SH.VKKTON.
Silverton (formerly culled Four MHo
City) Ih a town wiin ti good pay roll.
The mines direct k tributary loll employ several hundred men nnd the hi'Is
swarm with pros) fcOPO.    It   is   shout
four miles from New Denver by either
water or lake shore travll and sleigh
road. Prominent among the mines
that contribute to Silverton's support
are the Galena Form, Wakefield. Fisher Maiden, Thompson, Vancouver,
Canadian and Mt. .Mabel. It is currently reported also that the old Alpha
will soon resume operations after a
long shut-down on account of legal
complications. Of the fo.'egoing list
the Galena Farm is at present the
most active and farthest developed.
Supt. McDonald employs about eighty
men. The "Farm" is one of the very
few shaft propositions in tho Slocan,
sufficient depth being almost invariably obtainable by tunnelling into the
steep mountain Bides.   The property is

The prophets of this town's future

blon. Tim latter is shipping ore regularly, and has given smelter returns of
i 0111 108 ounces silver and $10 gold, 11)1
to 200 ounces silver and MO gold; for
be It known, Slocan Cliy has gold re-
soiuces as well as silver.
Soma discouragement was recently
caused by tiie ibrowlng up tne bond on
the Skylark and Hanger, ai well as
some oilier properties at an earlier
dule, and it was  thought by some that
a set buck had been given the camp.
But when the people roeoveed their
bi'ealii and 1 umumbcred how a number
of 1 iie leading mines ot tbe Slocan bad
11   been  similarly under bond   and
discarded, their ooufldenoa returned.
Mr. ("oplcn the owner ol tbe olalms
meniionod, says thai the Hull Minus
companv lias done jood wo k Cor him
and lie will now proceed lo billow up
their developmoiits for himself and has
no doubt but that lie can make the
claims pay tuelr own way fiom tbe
star,.
Slocan City has onoof tho best town-
sues in ilie count y. .It ha* lately become the seat of reeocd* of a new mining division, pud is confidently expecting to have a customs house and col-
lector within a year. It has two
good newspapers, the News, owned
by D. II. Young and edited by W.
Deaeh Wilcox, formerly of Spokane;
and Tho Pioneer, conductod by J. C.
McFaddcu and that woll known knight
of the quill, E. D. Cowen. It has good
hotels, large and well equipped business houses and an abominable mail
service, coming about-three times a
week and about a week late. Numerous well directed "lacks" are having
their effect upon tho government, however, and tbe people are living in hopes
that they will soon have a daily service
that does not stop to take a rest at every way-station. Postmaster Brndshaw
makes heroic efforts to atone for the
delinquencies in mail transportation.
and is an excellent official. The British
Columbia News wishes Slocan City all
prosperity and speedy deliverance from
these minor troubles.
If any one has any doubts as to Kas-
lo's prospe.i [toy, all that   he need do  to
dispel them is to open his nyus and look
