The fluctuations Of silver for the pust
two weeks are shown by the foregoing'
schc'lule. Closing on July 2!) at tho
unpreoedentodly low figure of 57 1-2
cents per ounco, II made another lowest figure of 65 1-2, August 5th.
The causes of the decline were dis-
Ctissed editorially in a lOeonl issue of
tho News. This journal has since re-
ceived no information that would cause
it to change its theory then advanced
that th" causes of the decline were ar-
lilieial and temporary and inspired by
politicians in the United States who
through Wall street were seeking to
influence on-coming elections and per-
petuaie i he gold standard.
England Working Toward Silver's Alii.
With referei i to the international
aid for silver the reports are encouraging, Under date of August 4th the
Royal <'oinniissji.ri of Agriculture at
London, England, baa issued a report
suggesting variot ��� palliatives for the
existing depre i ion In agriculture. Ten
ofthe members, including Hon. Henry
Chaplain, presjdi lot the local government board, and Hon. Walter Hume
Lionif, conservative member of West
Derby, signed a supplementary report,
declaring their belief that measures
'ending to Incn a-e the value of silver
would greatly , :- agriculture. Their
recommendation thai Great Britain
abandon the gold standard, and pro-
ved now to ce,ii ate in the international confi ence proposed by the
United Slate- night to carry great
weight with the government. They
insist that the only remedy for the
present depression lies in the opening
to silver of the mifits abroad and in India, and the restoration of silver
wholly or partially to the position it
occupied prior to 1873. ln conclusion
they request tlie government to give
effect to the resolution adopted by Parliament in February, 1894, in favor of
an International monetary conference.
The British government has informed tho American bimetallic commission and I hi: French ambassador
that it will probably reply to tho proposals of the commissioner, on behalf
of the United Slates   in October.    Tho
message was delivarod through sir
Michael Hicks-Houch. chancellor of
the exchequer, and the envoys think
thai Great Britain's Interest in the
i|ueslion of an international monetary
conference Justifies them in expecting
that the Indian mints will be opened.
The report made to the government
from the mint is understood to bo favorable to silver. The headquarters
ot the commission will remain in London until October. After receiving the
English reply they will go to Austria,
Germany and Russia, in that order.
It is being commented ou by several
English mining experts now in tho
Slocan country that a number of ICn-
glish capitalists arc quietly acquiring
valuable silver mines iu Mexico. That
being the ease, it is not difficult to see
why Lombard street as well as Wall
street is interested in getting silver
cheapened as far as possible.
Views of the Hritlsti Coimul in Mexico.
A dispatch from tho City of Mexico
says: Lionel Q, Garden, the British
consul who hus resided in this capital
for many years and who has an international reputation for the many articles which he has written on the silver question, in   an interview, says:
"My opinion is that tho price of silver is entirely governed by tlio law of
supply and demand. India, in ordinary
circumstances, takes a large portion of

i:.\-<!ov. Oriint'n Views.
Ex-Governor of Colorado J. n. Grant
of tho Omaha & Grant Smelter Co.,
which has recently purchased the Pilot
Buy smelter plant, is quoted as follows:
���'I think that the low price of silver
will havo some effect, upon the development of MexL'o, and that no more rail
roads will be built to the mines of
that country until the price recovers.
It will have no serious effect upon the
produotibp of load, for I have figured
Out that with lead at $3.60 and silver
at 55 1-2 cents it is just about as profitable to the miners as when load was
$3.25 and silver 06."
The Kootonliy Can Stand it.
It is the general belief among mining men here that the price of silver
may he forced a good many notches
lower before any of the mines will be
closed down. .1. O. Eaton manager of
the Whitewater'mine says that, his
mine would continue to produce even
if si'ver should be forced as low as 10
cents per ounce. The mines of the
Kootenay, being rich in both silver
and lead, and being easily worked, arc
operated at a great advantage over the
purely silver minus of the United
States. Improved transportation facilities and lead at $3,60, much moro than
offsot the lead ore duty now imposed
bv the United States.
Lnrijc Returns from "The Wonderful,"
Up to within a few weeks since the
Wonderful Group near Sandon, the
only silver-lead placer mine in the
world, had shipped 423 7-8 tons of ore,
according to figures furnished to a
News representative by Supt. E, .1.
Field, manager of the mine. Smelter
returns from these shipments showed
an average of 117.2 ozs of silver and
71.7 per cont lead, with a net value of
$83.34 per ion, amounting to over *.'l."i.-
000, after paying$23 per ton for freight
ami smelter treatment.
These figures have recently beet, materially increased, judging from tho
following statement in the Spokesman-
Review, obtained from the head offices
in Bpokane:
"The Wonderful (Iroup Mining Co.
on July III, received a check from the
Tacoma Smelting and Refining < to. for
$1,044.47, returns from 16 tons of ore,
which assayed 70 per cent, lead and 123
ounces in silver, aud netted, exelusivo
of duty, $00.1)2 per ton. On August jj
they reeoivod from" the Kootenay Ore
Co. of Kaslo, B. O.) a check for $1,064.-
28, returns from 14 tons of ore whieh
assayed 7.'! per cent load and 124 ounces
of silver, and netted, exclusive of puty,
$82.66 per ton. The duty and customs
on these two shipments amounted to
$636.62. *���

False taiFrom Rykerte Concern-
iifie Slocan Star,
Better Prices Now, Even With High Duty oi
Lead, Tliim in 1890.
In his eagerness to boom some copper and gold prospects near home, the
Rykerls correspondent of the Spokane
Spokesman-Review, indulges in some
romancing about Ihe Slocan properties
nearly 200 miles away from him. It
would have been easy to have gotten
the facts in the case instead of relying
ou his imagination for them', and indulging in untruthful comparisons, in
order to advertise tlie little hamlet of
Rykert's near the international boundary line between British Columbia
and Idaho; dr even-in order to advertise what may be very good gold and
copper prospects along Goat river.
This attempt to build up one section of
tic country by tearing down another,
is not only silly and childish, but. extremely harmful. A telegram to Bruce
White at Sandon. manager of the Slocan Star, might have averted all such
harmful rumors. Such a telegram has
since been sent and tho following answer received: "Deny report of Slocan Star shutting down. (Signed)
Mi .ice White."
Following is the misleading paragraph from the letter of the correspondent at l'yki rl:-: "At Rykerts it is
learned that th ' Slocan star contemplates shutting down soon on account
of the passage of the recent high tariff
on lead by tlie United States government, This shut-down will, in all
probability, be followed by ethers in
theJSlocan Country. The passage of
ih" tariff bill placing the duty at $30 a
ton on lead' w turned everybody
Lo looking for copper and gold."
Relative to this report a smelter representative said recently: "In 1896
lead averaged abw I $2,60 to tho hundred and the duty was three-quarters
of u cent, a pound. This year the price
of lead is about $3.60 per hundred and
the duty is now one and one-half cents
a pound. Th reismort profit in mining lead ores this year than last, as oau
be easily Bgui od out."
Silver, Lead, Copper and Gold All in

An ftttriotlvc I'lt-asure Trip   Way   He   Mailii nn
tin- "Albert-',
To any one desiring a complete and
very attract ivo Sunday's outing, tho
trip to Bonner's Kerry and return may
be heartily recommended. Going
aboard the "Alberta" Saturday night
at 9:80 o'clock, one may immediately
retiro to a comfortable state room, and
on rising in Ihe morning find himself
well up the Kootenay river in tho state
of Idaho. As the steamer winds along
betweon its charming banks a kaleidoscopic series of beautiful views is presented, until one reaches the town of
Bonner's Ferry at 10:30  a.   m.   Here
the traveler may rest or wander around
at his own sweet will   until   1   p.   m..
when the steamer having met tl a t
bound Great Northern train, casts off
its lines and starts on the return trip.
This is the pleasantesl of all ilu trip,
as assisted by the light current the
steamer rapidly comes down the river
and enters the lake an hour or so before sunset. The evening trip up the
lake is thus made under the pleasant
twilight and moonlight influences and
tlie traveler is safely landed at Kaslo
wharf about 10 p. m., having been absent about 24 hours. The meals on
board the "Alberta" ar" excellent, and
tho entire service reflects great credit
on the International Navigation and
Trading Company.
Remains of John Drum Pound in Dun*
can Kiver.
The remains of John Drum of Spokane, who was drowned in Duncan
river. May 20th, were discovered last
Sunday partially burled in a sand bank
by the action of the waves near the
mouth of the river. The discoverer
was s. Siefkes, a prospector who lives
ill Nelson. He immediately called four
witnesses to ihe scene and the body
ofthe mac was searched, disclosing
$12.60 in money and proofs of his identity. Siefkes brought the information
bo Government Agent Dennis of, this
oitj . who authorized him to return ami
give the body decent burial.
One of Drum's companions at the
time of his accidental drowning was
T. S. Clark who is at present employed
in this city. Mr. Clark says that the
current was so swift thai if washed
away the body before they could find
or rescue it, particulars of which were
published at the time, lie further
says that Drum was 62 years old, was
unmarried and left New Vork 2"< years
ago, since which time he has never
he-ii d from his relatives there. Drum
had been a prospector for 17 years, the
latter part of which time he mado Spokane his headquarters.

Dr. W. A. Hendryx, founder of the
Pilot Bay Smelter, who is at present in
tho city, made the following statement
lo a News representative today, concerning recent publications, arising
from the smelter sale, which might he
miscontrued by those not knowing
"I never claimed to be the owner of
the i'iliit. Day smelter. It was owned
by the Kootenay Lake Reduction company, the chief stock holder of which
was franklin Parrel of the Parrot Sil-
vei .v Copper company of Butte, Mont.
Mr. Parrel lives at Ansonia, Conn, 1
owned a quarter interest iu the plant,
Mr. Parrel was president, and I was
vice-president and manager. My
brother, A. B. Hendryx, never owned
in exceed $6,000 worth of stock in the
couccru up to the time that it closed.
The smelter was ool shutdown through
financial embarrassment on my part,
but through general complications
arising out, of the panic of 1893. I
have always paid 10(1 cents on the dollar and have never been sued in my
life. The Kootenay Mining_l Smelting

the Kootenay Lake Reduction company that built tic smelter and owned
Ihc Blue Doll mine. I also owned a

.lohn King, formerly well known In
the Kootenay, where he onci loi atei a
number of good claims, was in Spokane
the other day and outlined to a Spokesman-Review reporter a new route to
the Klondike which he says e.au bo
made in 25 days, lie is going back in
a few days to the Cassiar diggings
whei".' he has already spent two
months this year. This will brine him
near the headwaters of the Yukon,
whence he say.- one can go down the
river by canoe In a few days to the
"I .an not understand, "he ,-ai ^."w !,;.
men going to the Klondike diggings
should take such a roundabout way aa
is outlined by the transporation companies of San Francisco, Portland, and
Seattle. The route which 1 believe
feaeible'cntails no more hardships than
a trip to the new portions of the slocan or Port .Steele countries, excepl
that it requires inure time. This summer I was within 250 miles ol the Klondike diggings, on Tes-lin lake which is
the chief Source ofthe. Yukon river.
The chances of getting down that lake
and the Hoatalinkwa river, the principal feeder of the Yukon, are most excellent, You can leave Victoria on a
steamer for Fort VVrangel. Prom
there you take a river steamer, almost
as perfectly appointed as steamers on
the Columbia,for passage up the Stick-
een river, a distance of 150 miles, which
will take the passengers to Telegrph
... the ie ful of navigation. Two
steamers pi> on the Stickeen. ihe Alaska, property of the Diamond s Trading company, and the Caledonia belonging to the Hudson's Hay Trading
companv. from Telegraph civ: k the
route Is by pack train and horses
across table lands, teeming with grass
and well wooded and watered, to Tea-
lin lake, which is a large body of
water, There arc no high mountains
by this route. Down Tes-lin lake the
journey of 200 miles to the Hootallnk-
wa river is made in Indian canoe- or
boats built by the passengers, themselves, From there the journey is
made in the same canoe down the
Hootalinkwa river into the Yukon
and thence to Klondike, a distance
from the lake of 150 miles.
"Making allowance for delays and
other troubles the trip can be made in
this tlmfl! Spokane to Port WraogeJ
four and a half days: trip on the Stick-
ei river, three day.'-; 160 miles by
pack train from  Telegrapl eek   to

Tlie Cariboo in Stuart I.like Boots,
The second   new  route  starts from
the upper end or Stuart  lake,   ,i u
BOO miles above Ai I croft, the British
Columbia mining town. Hor lill) miles
above Ashoroft there is an excellent
wagon road, which brings the traveler
to the Upper I'Yaser river. Which is
navigable for 850miles for light steamers. On the river route there are one
or two bad places, which the dominion
government proposes to fix immediately for steamer travel. r_V��n above
Stuart lake a series of waterways arc
found, whieh can easily bo converted
into a steamer route. Freight can now
be taken as far as the lake for ii c_nts
per pound. Prom the lake to Port
Connelly the water route would be
through Tateher river, Cross lake,
North Tatlah and Driftwood river. A
miner well provided with pack horses
need not bother with the rivers and
lakes, as the entire distance to the fort
can be traveled with ease by a pack
train. The beauty of this route is that
no feed need be carried for the horses,

Colonel 0. V. Davis of Spokane has |
received an interest ing letter from James j
Parker, an old friend of his, who is now
at Dawson City, tlie metropolis of the
fumed Klondike. Parker served under
the colonel during tlie war in the Seventeenth Illinois cavalry, says The Spokesman-Review. He is a carpenter by trade,
and Colonel Davis vouches for his integrity. Parker passed through Spokane in
April of lust year, hound for Alaska. The
letter follows:
"Dawson City, K. YV. T., June 1, 1897.
���My Dear Colonel: 1 have been thinking maybe you would like to hear from
me and to know what 1 am doing and
if I am getting rich. Well, colonel, 1
am. I landed in Yukon one year ago
last May, and 1 have been one of the
lucky ones. I did not have but $1 when
1 landed here. I went to work at my
trade at $15 per duy, und bought my
own chuck, all the same as army rations,
Which cost me $5 per day. I finally got
the mining fever, and went to the Klondike country. Say, colonel, our army
marches were a luxury compared with
the trip over the mountains, wading
through the marsh, sleeping standing up
to your knees in water, hut with a feeling that if I could keep up 1 could get
enough of the yellow stuff to pay me for
my trouble. 1 saw many a poor fellow
sick, footsore, hungry, with almost despair written on their faces, which reminded me of our army life, but the thought
of the future, if successful, hud a tendency to brace them up. I helped to bury
five or six poor fellows that became discouraged and downhearted over the
hardships encountered, that gave up and
nothing could save them. You remember our march from Pilot Knob to Helena, Ark., when we were out of rations
for 15 days, had to sleep in the swamps,
snakes und swamp flies pecking ut you
���it is nothing compared with the lulu
birds you encounter here. Why, they
will stick their bills chuck through your |
green leiither mittens nnd will pull your
breeches off if they have a good chance.
We nil have to wear thick covering on I
the fnee and protect our bodies as well
as we can.
"Awful cold. I have seen it (10 and 70
below. All you have to do is to keep
your feet und hands warm and the rcBt
of your body will take care of itself.
"Colonel, I did not have but one sin-
gle dollar when 1 landed.   I have in gold
nuggets to the amount of $22,000; have
taken from one pun from $75 to $120.    1 j
have a claim that is good for us much |
more.    Now, old comrade, if you wnnt
to mukc a fortune,  come.    I  will    see i
you through the winter, put you on to I

Nelson, R. C, Aug. 7.���The following
petition is being generally circulated in
Kootenay, but so far as the correspondent ls able to learn, few signatures
have been obtained:
"To the Governor General of tihe Dominion  of Canada ln Council:
"The petition of the residents of the
Kootenay district, ln the province of
British Columbia,  humbly showeth:
"That the development of the Kootenay district has proved beyond all
doubt that the present tonnage and
value of ore mined is amply sufficient
to constantly supply several large
"That within the Kootenay district
there exists all the elements necessary
for the economical reduction of ores.
"That a smelter Is now being erected
at Northport, in the state of Washington, U. S. A., at a point distant less
than seven miles from Canada and only
sixteen miles from Rossland, the
center of the Trail creek mining division.
"That at the present time there are
ln West Kootenay three smelters of a
total capacity of 1075 tons daily, representing an investment of more than
$1,000,000,  and  employing  560  men.
"That the people of Kootenay are
desirous that the district may not only
produce ore, but also have such productions smelted and refined ln its limits, or at any rate at some point in Canada, thus building up an industry beneficial alike to labor, capital and commercial interests.
"That the Imposition of an export
duty on ores containing copper or
metal other than lead and nickel, would
not only assist the smelters at present
established, but would be an inducement to capital to invest further ln
such enterprises within the Kootenay
"Therefore, your petitioners pray that
an export duty, such as In your power
to grunt, may be Imposed by the Dominion of Canada upon all ores exported from Canada containing copper
or metal other than lead or nickel, and
your petitioners as in duty bound will
ever pray."
The one at the Phalr hotel has but
one signature, that of Howard Chapman of Victoria. Another showed but
three signers and two of them were
not residents of West Kootenay.
An export duty on any ore ls decidedly opposed and the opinion ls further
expressed that the petition is being circulated to head off the building of u
smelter at Northport, and as this petition only contemplates a duty on ore
such as Is produced by the LS Roi and
other Kossland mines, It would seem
Hun the opinion is a correct one.
Loin-  Campaigne Will   Give   War   to
single bat DecUlve Bnconntera.
Summing up the whole question as
between any two European peace-
trained armies of the present day, the
extreme percentage of loss to lie anticipated locally, 1. e., on particular brigades and divisions, will not exceed one
in three (of which one Is killed to four
wounded), whereas for whole armies of
a quarter of a million and over one In
ten is the very outside punishment we
may reasonably expect.
Compared to the slaughter of the seven years' war and the best contested
fields of the Napoleonic period, this If
very little, indeed. At Zorndorf the
Russians left 21,000 out of 52,000 on
the ground, nnd this is undoubtedly the
bloodiest battle recorded since the introduction of portable firearms. Eylau,
Frledland, Wagrnm and Brodlno nil
exceed the figures of any pitched battle
since the breechloader appeared ln the
Moreover, the horror of the whole
thing ls not to be measured by figures
of percentages only, but by the density
ln which the killed and wounded lie,
and the fate of the latter afterward.
In a modern bnttle 20,000 men would
fall on an area of about twenty square
miles; at Zorndorf the 21,000 Russians
and 12,000 Prussians lay on a single
square mile, and of the wounded not
one ln three survived; whereas, ln 1870,
nine out of ten recovered, and the Prussian medical staff anticipated even
better results next time.
But death on the battlefield ls by
far the least of the two evils the soldier
has to face. There is death on the line
of march, aud lu hospitals along the
road. Whereas formerly, paitlcularly
under Napoleon, ten would die by the
way for one who fell iu action, In tho
last Franco-German war only one man
died of disease for two killed ln action.
Indeed, the health of men lu the full
prime of life was actually slightly better ln the field thau ln quarters.
It may, however, be argued that,
even granted that battles and marches
may be less destructive, there will lie
more of them, because every able-bodied man being trained by war, the resistance will be more prolonged than
formerly, but this prolonged endurance
is only conceivable under the supposition that the leaders on both sides are
hopelessly incompetent, and both fear
to stake all on a single collision���a supposition that nothing tends to justify.
On the contrary, every ladder brought
up tn the modern school Is taught to
understand the vulnerability of all
modern military organizations, and is
penetrated with the conviction that one
downright "kuockout" blow effects
more than weeks of purposeless sparring, aud where both start determined
to bring matters to a climax the decision ennnot be long delayed. Judging
from what we know of the relative efficiency of continental armies, we believe that the first round of the great
encounter will also be! the last, for Iho
momentum of the blow which decides
will simply paralyze every nerve in the
opponent's body, nnd, adding up all
sources of casualties that can occur lu
a short campaign of this description,
we conclude tliat at the very worst the
actual cost In humnn life to the powers
etignged will not amount to more than
5 per cent, of their several populations.���Pull Mall Gazette.

From a cablegram received from I*>n
don, England, it is learned that the 100,-
000 shares of promoters' stock in the Viking and Phoenix, taken there recently by
English mining men, has all been subscribed. These claims are on Springer
creek, one and one-half miles from Slocan
City, B. 0��� and have re.' ,'rkably good
surface indications. Numerous assays
have all given satisfactory returns, tested
by several different assaycrs. Recent results from three assays were: $213, gold
and silver; $370.25, gold and silver, and
$r>24.00 in gold and $79.80 in gold. In
the course of a month, with plenty of
cash in the treasury, the company will
put on a force of men and actively prosecute development work in the property.

Kingston, Idaho, Aug. 7. ��� H. W.
Wheeler, president of tlie Idaho Antimony Mining Company, left today on
a short visit to his son, and' the mill
will be about ready to Btart by his ie-
turn. He calculates on everything being In good running order by September 1.
Mr. Wheeler wald he proposed to concentrate his ore by heat Instead of by
machinery. The property was worked
a while some years ago, but did not
prove profitable enough to Justify continuing operations. Then Mr. Wheeler
went to experimenting with heat as a
concentrating method, and now ls ion-
fldent that he can handle at a profit
ore that would not pay with any mechanical process of concentration.
Contrary to the general opinion that
he ls putting In an antimony sme)t��r,
Mr. Wheeler says that he only concentrates It and that it must be smelted
afterward, the concentrates as they nre
shipped from here running about 8ft
per cent antimony. The process Is
slow, the capacity of the present plant
being only 10 tons dally, but Bhould it
come up to his expectations, the capacity can be doubled at small expense.
The lead crops along the west bank
of Pine creek, lying less than 30 degrees from the horizontal, and ls of unknown extent. During the old work nn
Incline was run on it 170 feet Into the
hill. No other antimony ln anything
approaching paying quantities ls
known anywhere In the Coeur d'AIenes,
although there Is some at the Mountain

The Deathwatch.
In 18C>3 I hud two chums of the name
j of Beth and Cicero Dodge, who lived
! down In the forks of 'Coon, about four
, miles below us.  The boys were hauling
| wood to town, and they told me that the
! woods down ln the forks were alive
j with squirrels, and that If I would go
| back with them thnt   evening    they
I would get their father to let them have
] the next day off, and we would have
'lots of fun.   I went home and got my I
I No. 14 muzzle loader, plenty of nmniu- I
j nliliui nnd my dog, nnd went home with ,
them.   Father Dodge had built a new
frame house, but It was    not   large >
' enough to accommodate the family nnd
any strangers, so Cicero and I slept out j
| ln the old log house,   I shall never forget the ware we got that night.    As
boys will, we lay there a long time ills-
cussing the various projiosltlons that !
suggest themselves to two lioy chums j
who haven't seen each other for some
time.     Along   toward   midnight   we
thought we discovered the presence of
somebody under our bed.   To make it
more certain, we distinctly heard the
ticking of his watch.   We beonme uneasy, for the ticking of that watch was
regular and Incessant.   At lest Cicero
quietly slipped out of bed, went over to
the new house and called hie father,
who came and Investigated.   Much to
our chagrin the old gentleman soon discovered that the cause of our dread and
forebodings wns only a deathwatch at
work In an old log by the side of the

"She Is a beauty, Joe, and no mis
"Yes. and fast, too."
"That's her best point, In my estimation."
With a skillful turn of the wheel, that
was so little as to seem almost a toy,
Joe Parsons brought the trim steam
launch gracefully around the end of
the pier nnd up beside the floating
stage, with a maneuver so clever that
the paint on the side of the little craft
was not scraped.
Frxd Allen sprang out upon the
stage, and then, running his eye along
the Hues of the bont, repeated his remark:
"She's a beauty, and, as you say, fast.
Jove, she cuts the air at such a rate
that she carries a cool breeze with
her on the hottest night."
Then, with a cordial "Good night,"
Allen lightly climbed the ladder that
led to the pier, while Parsons, after a
preliminary toot of the little steam
whistle, backed slowly out into the
stream, and then kept up the North
river at full speed.
"A beatrly, Indeed," he kept repeating to himself, thrilling with a strange
pride at the thought of being owner,
master and crew of such a saucy little
marine creature.
For the Nancy seemed almost alive
to him. He was a bookkeeper in a
down-town bnnk, a sober, Industrious,
loyal, and good-hearted fellow; who
preferred the pleasures that do not
appeal to the general run of young men.
Two years before he had conceived
tbe Idea that for at least six months iu
the year It would give him great pleasure to spend his evenings nnd holidays
ln just such a craft as he now possessed.
The Nancy had consumed $1,000 of
his by no means extensive savings, but
Joe was happy, and what ls money
compared to happiness.
First the launch spurted ahead at
her best speed, then slowed down to
hardly more than half speed, all the
while her shrill whistle tooted much
more frequently than Is required by
the laws of navigation. Joe was plny-
lngk with his boat as some men do with
a fine horse, as a woman does with her
laughing first born.
In and out among the larger river
craft the Nancy glided. Several times
he all but got In the way of tugs nnd
ferryboats, but these experiences only
made bis miniature voyage the more
One of the maneuvers carried him
close to tbe piers on the New York
side of tbe river.
Suddenly Joe looked ahead just In
time to see a human figure shoot from
tbe end of a pier and strike the water
with a Bplash.
At that moment the Nancy was not
more than twenty yards away.
"A suicide!" burst from Joe's lips.
Then: "But I'll spoil the game."
The launch sped quickly to the spot,
then hesitated and almost stood still
under the influence of a sudden reversal of the engine.
In that pause of an instant Joe leaned over the side and found himself
grasping a young woman.
Tbe next moment the Nancy began
to go backward through the water, but
Joe had lifted the sylph-like form Into
the boat, and now the young lady lay
between hliu and tbe engine.
Her wide open eyes stared at him in a
peculiar fashion.
"Do you do this often?" he queried,
not knowing what else to say.
A sigh was the only answer.
"I must scold her," thought Joe.
So be began:
"Miss, don't you know that suicide
Is one of the wickedest things ln the
The expression on her face changed
to one of relief.
"Yes," she answered.
"Then why did you jump into the
"So you didn't see me*���she began,
but stopped ln sudden confusion.
"I saw you just as you struck the
water," bo answered.
A sigh���this time one of unmistakable relief���escaped her.
"Why did you try to," he went on,
"Don't���don't ask me," she pleaded.
"Don't ask you what?"
"Don't ask me anything, please!    I
shall be greatly obliged to you, If you
will humor me."
"Well, you are a queer girl," he
commented. "You reach the point
where life has no further charms for
you, aud then immediately begin to
ask favors."
Under pretense of working at the
engine, ho managed to turn the little
lantern so that It shed a fuller light
upon her face.
The cheeks were pallid���naturally,
Joe Inwardly commented���but the
great, tender eyes and Inexpressibly
sweet face did not belong to a woman
who would deliberately end her life.
It was a face with which any man
not wholly a brute would be unable to
avoid falling In love.
"See here," came suddenly from Joe,
"you didn't really mean to jump into
the water?"
"Oh, but you promised, sir, to ask
me no questions."
"I didn't promise; It was you who
made the request."
"I make It again," she pleaded.
"Surely you will humor me."
"And do everything else that you
ask," cried Joe, suddenly, overwhelmed and conquered by the most wonderful little face he had ever seen. "What
shall I do, first of all?"
"Talk about something cheerful,"
she urged, with a shiver.
"Well, In the first place, you're certainly wet, and you must be cold."
"Oh, no; the night is too warm for
"Won't you take a little taste of this
lrrandy?" he suggested, producing his
flask. "It may save you from catching a severe cold." She took the flask,
but only the merest drop passed her
Then Joe, in obedience to her whim,
branched out Into dissertations on the
most general topics. He felt thnt he
was talking like an idiot, but he evidently pleased her, for soon she joined
In his talk, and displayed not only uncommon Intelligence, but a vivacity
that was hardly to be expected.
All this time they had been speeding
up  the  North  river.    Joe    suddenly
nwakened from his delicious absorption to Und that they were opposite
"Where shalj I land you?" he asked.
"Anywhere;    1    must    be   getting
"And may I escort you there?"
"Oh, no; not for worlds."
Her look   was both  pleading    and
"At least, may I call to-morrow, to
make sure thnt you have not suffered
from your exposure?".
"Please don't think of doing that,
either. And don't try to find out anything about me."
'"I inn a gentleman." said Joe, with a
simplicity that much have touched
ber. The boat had landed by this time.
She stood up, shook out her garments
���which were almost dry by this time
���and held out her hand.
"Good-by," she said, "and thank you
���thank you for more than I can tell
you. We shall probably never meet
again, but I shall always look back
upon you as one of my friends. Thank
you, again, most earnestly, and good-
Joe held her band for a few seconds
longer than he needed to, and tipped
his fiat almost reverently as she glided
"No, she certainly didn't mean to
commit suicide," be soliloquised, gazing Intently at her rapidly disappearing form. "Confound It, If I meet that
girl again, I shall certainly fall In love
with her. What ls all the mystery
back of this affair, I wonder."
The Nancy backed water again, then
steamed down the river. Twenty minutes later the launch was at her berth,
and fifteen minutes after that the fire
was drawn and all made snug about
Then Joe wended bis way home, his
pretty craft forgotten ln the mase of
thought wltb which the adventure of
that evening bad filled bis head.
And when, ln his bed, Joe Parsons
tried ln vain to woo sleep, these words
kept running through his brain:
"If I meet that girl again, I shall
certainly fall in love with her."
* �� ��� �� ��
But month after month went by, nnd
Joe did not once behold the woman
that the river had yielded up to hiin,
only to let the town swallow her up
half an hour later.
It was only a few weeks ago thnt
.Toe had been taken from the books of
the bank aud established lu a small,
cozy office to attend to the correspondence of the Institution.
A typewriter was necessary, so ho
advertised for one. There were a host
of applicants, but many of them had
not the necessary knowledge for his
kind of work, so they wore rejected.
When the door opened to admit still
another applicant, and Joe looked up,
he almost shouted in his glee, for tbe
newcomer was the young woman of
the river episode.
The recognition was mutual, but
each strove to ignore the fact, and Joe
plunged at once into an examination
of her qualifications.
She gave ber name ns Nora Dur-
well, nnd responded to all his questions
so satisfactorily that he engaged her
on the spot.
"I am sorry the salary is not larger,"
he said, apologetically, "but the bank
regulates that, aud I have no control
in the matter."
Only a few days ago, nn observer
might have seen Nora gazing with
truly feminine delight at a pretty solitaire ring on her finger. Joe's hand
was resting affectionately on her shoulder.
"Tell me," he said, suddenly, nnd
with something of an air of proprietorship, "how you happened to be in the
river that night?"
"I was pushed in," she replied, turning pale at the recollection.
"By whom?" _  ~
"My husband." *~       "**
"Your husband?"
"Yes; he was a fearful brute. That
night he Inveigled me out on the pier,
with the deliberate Intention of murdering me. But I am trying to forget
all that. Please never speak of It
"Little girl," said Joe, with husky
tenderness, "If you are willing to marry me after such an experience ln matrimony, what a great faith you must
have in me."
"I have," she replied, simply.

Don't Go to Brazil.
Brazil is not a profitable place to go

enough for emigrants to start with.
He says: "No Americans coming to
Para without the means to maintain
themselves while acquiring tho language and seeking employment can
have much chance of success.
"That language Is Portuguese, and
one must know It lu order to rind employment. Para has more applicants
than positions. Salaries are small, and
living the most expensive in the world.
"Nearly everything consumed here is
imported, and pays a very high import
duty. Salaries for clerks are from $15
to $45 a month. The uncertain aud
everchanglng value of the money has
an Injurious effect upon trade. None
suffer more from It than tbey who work
for wages, for while the cost of living
ls made dearer by the financial condition of the country, salaries undergo
little or no change as the money fluctuates in value. As to outdoor labor, no
white American who exposes himself,
as he would be compelled to do, to the
sun's burning rays, wet season, could
hope to escape the yellow fever.
"It ls true, mouey Is plentiful and the
exportation of natural products guarantees a permanent prosperity to this
part of Brazil; but no one can successfully deal In rubber unless he hna a
large capital. The competition Is great.
In the rubber field, men without money
can play no part, unices they become
rubber gatherers, In which case they
would have ten chances for death
against life. On eon.e of the rivers, 50
per cent, of the natives die who go

Buch an arrangement in provided, however, the more offensive Conns of refuse should be buried. Sonic may demur at tho expense ol such arrangements, but expense should not be seriously considered when human life is

A little girl was once sitting on a
doorstep weeping bitterly. A passerby Inquired into the cause of her grief.
"Oh," she replied, "1 wus jus! thinking hoc- terrible it would be if I should
grow nil to be a woman and have sunn'
children and one of them should fall
down the cellar .tail's and cut her
head on a hatchet." A.nd she resumed
her lamentations and refused to be
comforted.      ��
The little girl's presentiments were
just aboul as reasonable as the byste
cal forebodings now being Lndulged in
anent the decline in silver by a few
trouble borrowers in the Kootenay.
In the first place, there is every reason
to believe that the decline is artificially produced and consequently temporary. In the second plaoe, if this
were not so, there is no place in the

A mining country that lias no better
recommendation than that it is better
than some other because that other is
worthless, from whatever cause, will
always be looked upon by men of discernment as ,i mighty safe place to -tay

always results more disastrously to
those who attempt it than to the section attacked.
It would probably bo taken tor a
joke, if the assertion were to be made
that the gold output of the Klondike is

world v.iin gold that it might become
necessary to demonetize that metal
owing io Its phmtifulness. Yet just
such assertions were gravely made by
leading financiers and bankers'organs
during tbe great California aud Australia gold excitements. It would he a
very good joke indeed, if Dame Nature,
assisted by the miners, should re-establish the commercial parity of 16 to 1

Before adjourning Alderman Good-
enough gave notice that at the next
meeting he would int induce By-Law
No. 44, for the ei-propriatioo of ten
feet of private property on each side
Of A avenue between 3rd and 5th sis.
This action was precipitated by the
fact of Ahierl'ishop.having on advice of
his attorneys, caused the sidewalk in
front of his property on A avenue to be
torn up.
A avenue was formerly but 60 feet
wide, By agreement of the properly
holders between 3rd and 5th streets it
was a long time since agreed to widen
the si reel to sir feet by the donation to
the city of 10 foot on eacli side of the
street. Accordingly, although the
city never received deeds of the property, city sidewalks were constructed
on this extra ten-foot, strip on each
side of the avenue. Grievances, however, arose when it was found that the
sidewalks were in some eases much
higher than the property that they
fronted, and entailed steep stops to get
to some of the houses. This was especially the case with Mr. Bishop's
property, who claims that when he
built, his house was on grade. He also
olalms that, tie could get no satisfaction
from the city officials with reference to
a compromise or arbitration. So he
forced mutters to an issue by touring
up the sidewalk from the ten-foot strip
that is still technically his property. It

southwesterly direction, aud which
can be seen from Kuslo, was the boundary lino between the mineral belt on
which is situated Ainsworth and tlie
South Pork mine. , Including the Montezuma. As no shipping mines bad

Immediately after crossing the huge
lime dyke after traveling Up the stream
described, they came to tl well defined
mineral belt but covered in most
places with earth and wash. Thomas
chirk and Jack Wright were also on
the ground. By dint of close search on
the exposed portion of the section several strong '.'in i with very healthy
looking crbppings were found. Messrs,
Blackmail and Kemp procured tools
and dynamite and tired ��� several blasts
in two different discoveries they inane
which showed a decided improvement
as they got below the surface.
They traced the mineral licit westerly to the top of the ridge overlooking
the South Pork and demonstrated the
zone was the same on which is Located

divide the ground appears to he all located.   I Hack man and   Kemp  secured
three claims,   tiie   I',.   lijjtite,    Kloshe

on an immense vein of iron capping
und the latter being farther south in   a

One of the Kaslo institutions in
whieh every smoker should be interested is the cigar factory conducted by
Holland Brothers. This factory started
In March, 181)0, and now sells all over
the Kootenay District. Revenue Collector Miller says that the Kaslo factory is doing more work and selling
more goods than all of the other three
factories of tho district combined. B d-
land Bros, employ seven men, puyii.g
regular union wages which cost froin
one-half to ono-thif' more than if they
should employ non- mion men. Their
tobacco is also of the best, their leaf
and filler material b"ing imported from
(iuba and Sumatra and thoir binder
material from Connecticut. Importing raw material, their duty is light,
and they compete in   price and quality
of goods wilh any linn in   tin unl"y.
Sellers should patronize these hum"
manufacturers, and consumers should
insist upon being furnished with then
superior homo made goods.

THERE have lately beeu turned
out of the Southern Pacific Hail-
road shops ut one of tlie big terminals of that road on the rucllic
Coast, four of the largest consolidated
pattern engines in use, designed especially for mountain work, whose plans
and specifications were drawn by probably the only lady expert mechanical
��nglueer in America, if not in the
world. How she attained hor present
position is ono of the railroad legends
of the road for which she works, but I
believe the story lias never beeu lu
A number of years ago. about fifteen
I believe, some lucky prospectors "located" mining claims nway up In tlie
Almost Inaccessible fortresses of one
K>t the mountain ranges of the West
and the phenomenal riches of the lead
amply repaid the heavy expense of
the "mule train" that was used to
"puck" the output to the railroad.
Eventually,the prosperity of the first
proprietors brought other adventurous spirits to the lucky spot und later
a rich syndicate bought out all the
smaller claims on the ledge and established there the great mills and smelters of the Calumet Mining and Smelting Company.
Then the Southern Pacific people
awakened to the importance of tho enterprise, and after a series of consultations with the syndicate In the course
of which a very handsome financial
proposition was made by the miners, a
branch road was surveyed up through
the canons to the site of the now rap-
Idly growing town. The difficulties
were almost insurmountable, but at
last the work wns done and a very
crooked and dangerous piece of track
wus the result. Its grades were precipitous ln the extreme; Its curves
sharp to the hist degree, and Its roud
bed so narrow in some places that If a
car became derailed it was either demolished against tne rock wall on one
elite or went to the bottom of the gorge
on the other, there to lie and rot and
rust away. Once over tlie cliff the cost
of raising an ore oar would almost
pay for a-new one, nnd the company
seldom made any effort to recover the
One point on the short road had always been dreaoed by the trainmen,
nnd this was the sharp curve at the
approach to what was called the second crossing. It had been a prolific
source of wrecks aud the rocks below
the bridge were strewn with the broken timbers and bent and twisted Iron
work of dozens of ore curs that had
plunged over the sheer sides of the
deep gorge. This second crossing

grade and from there tin- road wound

Valley to the "Junction," where It Joined the uiuln Hue of Ihe Southern I*u-
At the point where tho level trnca
Commenced, hardly a Htone's throw
from the second crossing bridge, the
company hud built a short siding for
the use of the giant consolidated engine that was used to push the lung
trains of ore cars up tho mountain, and
just across tho main truck from tho
siding stood the little cottage whore
John Clarke, the englnoor, and bis
daughter, Jessie, lived.
Miss Jessie at that time was nearly
16, aud for the last three years had
been her father's housekeeper. All hor
life she had been Intimately associated
with railroad men and for tho three
years that her father had boon running the big "pusher" she had had no
other companion than the old engineer,
bis fireman and a little brother, several years her Junior.
A short time before the Incident happened of which I am about to tell you,
a tourist delayed by a wreck at the
bridge had spent the day at Clarke's
cottage. The little housekeeper had
made the day very pleasant for him
by piloting him about the valley, and
on leaving he had given her a pair of
powerful field glasses. They were her
dourest earthly possession, for with
them she could see her father's engine
as It crept down the mountain for nearly an hour before he would arrive at
the siding.
The long stretches of road as It
wound around the crags up the canon,
now for a mile ln sight, then dtson-
pearing among the rocks only to reappear still further up the mountain,
were always an interesting study for
the girl, and, but for those field glasses, the young lady's practical knowledge of railroading nnd her unparalleled nerve, the Southern Pacific would
have had ono wreck that would have
cost many lives.
One August evening Miss Clarke was
watching through the field glasses the
i ffect of the sunlight on the brilliant
qusrtz rock at the farthest point up
the mountain, where tho track could
b�� seou from the valley and only a
si.ort distance from the big mills ct
Hit top of the hill. Her fattier niul his
fireman hail gone to the Junction for
some supplies and were to leturu on
the "mall," now nearly due. Her little brother was "playing fireman ' and
with a big bunch of waste was rub
bing up the bright work about Lho big
engine. The twilight si'enco In tlie
valley was only broken by tlie occasional hiss of escaping .team and the
steady, monotonous "pound" of the u'r-
puirp on tho engine, w.ilc.i her father
hnd forgotten to shut off before ho lert.
Sue had just noticed it mil was about
to go to tho engine and shut off the
Pterin, when, as Bhe took one last look,
she was almost paralyzed by the sight
of a long train of ore ears creeping
retched a long stretch of straight track
where the view was clear for nearly a
mile, she shut off the steam nud gradually the locomotive stopped.
Jessie looked up at the steam gauge
Tho pointer indicated only 100 pounds
pressure. Keeping a close watch on
the truck ahead, the intrepid girl left
tho throttle and, opening the lire-box
door, replenished the fire. Just as the
lust scoopful of conl was thrown in
nnd the door closed the runaway shot
around the curve into view, and, starting the engine back, the girl watched
closely for n chance to catch the now
rapidly moving train.
Down the heavy grade went engine
and cars, the distance between them
rapidly growing shorter. On a little
piece of straight track, a little over a
mile from the dangerous bridge, Jessie decided to take the last desperate
Chance, and as the engine reached the
desired point, only a few feet ahead ot
the flying ore cars, tho girl gave the
engine a light touch of the airbrake
and then, with mighty Impact, the
heavy train struck tho engine, then the
airbrake lever was sent to the "emergency notch," but so great was the
speed ol tlie train that even that did
but little to slacken the Rpeed and that
awful curve at the bridge was almost
lu sight.
.less'e almost lost hor nerve as she
thought of that deadly place. She
knew the big engine would never
round it at Its presei** rate of speed.
Suddenly the escape valve of the engine opened with a mighty roar, tolling her the powerful machine was
straining and quivering under the
pr'ssuio of nearly 200 pounds of steam,
nnd then a favorite axiom of her father's came to mind: "If air won't
hold 'em, give 'em stonm."
One supreme effort of the strong
yoong arms and the reverse lever of
the black giant was thrown over, the
saud pipes wore opened nnd with
stiady hand Jessie opened the throttle, throwing a mighty force against
the heavy train.
Now tlie speed of the train materially decreased, but the big locomotive
rolled and rocked like a ship at sea as
she safely rounded the dangerous
curve and shot out on the high bridge,
nnd then came another shock for the
sorely tried girl, for standing ln front
of the cottage, almost hidden by a
dense cloud of black smoke, Btood the
little passenger train with Its load of
tususpectlng travelers.

around the curve. Two or three of the
lulmrors nt the mines wore rill on
tuoni, but hand brakes would never
stop that heavy train and as it slowly
gained ln speed she saw them leave,
the train. Then she thought of the
little passenger train thnt would be
there ln a few minutes and,In another
moment she was climbing Into the cab
of the big engine nnd telling her little
brother what to do.
"Open the switch, Johnnie, and when
I get out on the main track shut It and
run down the truck and flag number
one. Tell dad I'm up the hill to catch
a runaway."
Johnnie did as he was told and the
powerful engine rolled out of the siding, across the bridge and was soon
tearing up the hill at full speed toward
the now rapidly approaching train.
As she left the siding her one thought
had been to save the passenger train
from an awful collision, but ns she
crossed the bridge she thought of a
little story her father had lately told
of how he had once caught a runaway-
train with his engine and had stopped
It before It could do any damage. She
would try It now despite the awful
danger. If "Daddy" could do It, she
For nearly four miles up the hill the

railroad craft came to her, and the
knew thnt no power on earth could
stop thnt heavy train ln time to avert
a collision; but she could signal to
them. A brown hand reached for the
whistle cord, and In a second more tbe
deep valley was resounding to tbe
hoarse roar of the duplex whistle giving three loud blasts���the railroaders'
signal:   "Back up."
The signal was Just In time, as the
passenger train backed out of tbe way,
the big consolldator and Its string of
ore cars rolled heavily by, the train
now u��ler control, but still moving
with sufneluut force to have done considerable damage.
As the train passed the siding, Clarke
and his fireman climbed on the cars
and soon stopped them; and as Jessie
jumped to the ground she almost
alighted on a tall, grny-mustachod old
gentleman. He was Charles Archer,
Vice President and General Manager
of the Sent hern Pacific, and a man who
never failed to recognize and reward
merit; and It was at his hands Miss
Clarke received the education that fitted her for the position she now occupies, and who placed the lady's name
on the "merit roll" of the Southern
Pacific Railroad, at a salary of $1,500
per year, work or play, as long aa she

Placer Claims BedoceU in Size.
A dispatch from Ottawa dated Aug.
8, says that among the new decisions
recently rendered by the Dominion
government in regard to the Yukon
country ami tho working of tbo gold
r.'ids there.tic mining laws have been
amended in one Important particular,
\t present a miner is at liberty to
takeout a claim of 600 feet running
along with the stream and back to tho
bank. This lias been reduced to 100
leet. ami the new regulation will go
into force immediately.
The New Yukon Regulations.
.\ Leadldg Kaslo mining man expressed himself yesterday to a News
representative concerning tbe new
regulations governing placer mining On
the Yukon river and tributaries in the
Northwest Territories. He said: "The
royalty demanded by the government,
of Id per cent on every claim cleaning
up $500 per week.or less and 20 per
cent on every claim cleaning up in excess of that sum. will cause great corruption, li is a premium on dishonesty, lv en a preacher who should clean
up there, say, 825,000, would hate to
give up $5,000 of it and might bo ac-'
tually forced to smuggle or whack up
with the mounted police. This law
will surely breed crime ami criminals.
The government ought to be satisfied
with reserving tor itself every alter-
i claim, as it now does, collecting
high record fees and the usual taxes,
for its ���hare of the revenue, instead oi'
forcing honesfmen to become dishonest, both among the miners ami the
police." Continuing he paid a high
tribute to Captain Herchmer for the
chuiadiT of some of the mounted police
that he i.- sending up there, nnd

Among them were mentioned Captain
Mollree   am!    Major.-    Harper    ami

would hardly relievo tho solitude of a
land which is larger than tbe United
States or the Australian continent.
Certainly they could not begin to cover
the ground of possible riches. The argonauts could not do that in California. Even nt tbe present day placers

A Finil of Scientific interest.
Mr. Wilkonson Of Nanaimo. one of
llic miners who returned from the
Klondike with $40,000, the result of
three months' labor, says that large
and exceptionally (ine specimens of
ivory were found last season solidly
imbedded iu the icy gravel, The ivory
tusks of mastodons vyeigbing as much
as 150 pounds have boen found Lu an
excellent state of preservation. Piles
and piles of bones have been taken out.
and there is every indication thnt during some prehistoric period large bands
of mastodons grazed over -the great
plains of the Yukon valley. That was
during an ago, no doubt, when the
country was subject to tropical Influences, There arc indications on every
hand to show that rank tropical vegetation once covered the great frozen
region of the northwestern part, of
Alaska. While working onu of tho
claims Mr. Wilkeiison found a leu1
bone of a mastodon covered with flesh.
It was taken from n bed of ice. and was
afterwards sent to the Dominion museum at Ottawa.
