NO. 7.
A New Way to Klondike Entirely
Within Canada.
Via Edmonton aud Athabasca or Peace River���
C. P. R. May Build.
. The London (Eng.) Chronicle states
that a large deputation headed by former Agent General Beeton oi British
Columbia, waited recently upon Sir
Wilfred Latirier. Canadian premier,
and urged upon him the exped'eney of
opening up a route to the Yukon district.
Following closely upon this comes a
Montreal correspondent saying- that
Sir Wm. Van Home states that the discoveries in Klondike would probably
lead to an extension of the Calgary and
Edmonton branch to Athabasca Landing, thus reducing tho land route from
that point to l��'ort MacPhorson, near
the mouth of tho Mackenzie river to
one portage loss than twenty miles. It
is stated hy direct route from Edmonton, the Landing can lie reached hy
forty miles of track, but as it is not
probable tho Saskatchewan can be
crossed at Edmonton, the president of
the C. P. K. launder the impression,
from fifty to stxy miles of railway will
have to be built. There can bo little
doubt if the Klondike con ti nuns to
show up well, the rails of the C. P. R.
will reach Athabasca Landing before
the end of next summer.
Commenting upon this route the*
Calgary Bera'd says that until a short
time ago a person,reading the accounts
of the Yukon gold fluids, would have
thought that tbe only way of reaching
the interior of the upper Yukon basin
was by sea to Juneau nnd thence across
the mountains, or to Norton inlet and
St. Michaels and up the Yukon river.
However, in view of   the   fact  that
there is yet another route to   the   Yukon entirely through Canadian   territory���a route whieh, in bygone years,
the Hudson Bay company used to reach
Fort Yukon prior to the United States
taking possession of   Alaska���we  may
hazard   the opinion that   in   the near
futuro none ofthe routes via   Vancouver and .lunoau will offer- any   attraction to Intending prospectors and minors.    The route we refer to is via Athabasca Landing or   Peace River Lauding.    It is free  from   the   dangers attendant upon sen passages   and   mountain travelling; it will be open all the
year round: it is shorter than either of
the others, and it can he put ln fit condition for traffic at very little expense.
Three Variations oi this Route,
The Revelstoke Herald  says that in
connection with   tho  proposed  establishment of an overland route from Edmonton to Klondike it   may   bo noted
that there are three   feasible   courses,
all starting from the Athabasca Land-
iug about HO miles northeast, of Edmonton on the Athabasca river.
i The first oourse follows the  route of
the Hudson's Bay   steamers   from tho
Landing almost to the   mouth   of the
Mackenzie, thence   turning   west and
following up tho Peel river .'Iii miles to
Fort Macpherson. from which  point  a
portage of 7(10 miles reaches La Pierre
House on the Porcupine, a tributary of
the   Yukon   Itself.     This   is   a long,
round about route, only a little short of
8,000 miles, though it htlB the advantage of being   by   water   navigable  by
steamer and bout all   tho   way   except
the B0 miles   between   Edmonton   and
Athabasca Lauding,   which   aro now
connected by a fairly good wagon road,
and will  next  summer,  If  Mr.   Vun
Home is as good as bis word, bo joined
by a railway.   This route has the  further disadvantage that the Porcupine,
after a course of 400 miles  from   Macpherson, flows into   the   Yukon   about
+0(i miles below Klondike.
The second variation of this route
would bo the same us the first as far as
Fort Simpson, where the Mackenzie
would bo left for the Liard river,
which is navigable by boat as far as
Fort Liard. Beyond this point the
navigation of.the Liard is very difficult,
though the Hudson's Bay voyageurs
have made the trip often enough across
the divide to the Polly and thence to
Fort Selkirk, where the Lewis and the
Pelly join and form the Yukon.
But the variation of this route which

will probably be adopted is from Athabasca Landing to the Lesser Slave
lake, thence to Dunvegon on Peace
river, thence to tho Nelson river and
on to Lake Frances at the junction of
the Dense and Liard rivers from which
point the Pelly would be followed as
in variation No. 2. The whole journey
from tho Landing to the Pelly would
by this way bo about 900 miles over a
country partly prairie and partly lightly timbered. The road from the Landing to Peace river is already in use
and the balance to the Pelly could easily be constructed. Tho Pelly is an
easily navigable river and a run down
it of oiiO miles would land tho traveler
at the Klondike.
Construction Proceeding Rapidly on
the Eastern Division.
Construction on tho Crow's Nest By.
is now proceeding with all possible dispatch, says the Port Steele Prospector.
For a distance of 100 milos the right of
way is crowded with men and teams. A
number of contractors aro working a
large, force at old Man's lake. The
camp tires of graders can be seen the
whole distance���-125 miles. The work
has been largely let, in small contracts,
according to the size of the outfit of the
���(infractor. Tracklaying will bo done
by the (,'. P. R. as soon as the contractors have linished thoir part of the
Tlio Keno Group.
Work on the Reno Group rocontly
lionded by J. B, Ferguson and C. F.
Caldwell is progressing favorably. It
is likely to prove one of the most valuable properties that has been discovered in tho Slocan district this year.
The ore Is high grade, the vein is a
true llssure, und shows at the present
workings 12 inches of galona. It is a
property that can be worked profitably
even should silver drop to half its
present price. Several tons of ore are
now ready for shipment and Mr. Caldwell says that they expect to snip near
load within .".0 days.

The President of the Le Roi Company
He Says There May Be a Smeller Each Side
of (he Line.
Col. W. W. D. Turner of Spokane,
president of tho Lo Roi Mining and
Smelting Company at Rossland, was in
Kaslo last Monday and passed on up
the road to Sandon Tuesday. It is trip
i nto the Slocan is for tho purpose of
inspecting the Wonderful Mining
Group! near Saud.ui, of which company
ho is also president. ���
lie says that the reasons for locating
tho Le Roi smelter at Northport wore
several���-the leading ones being the
cheapness and oloso proximity to large
bodies of limestone rock, abundance of
water at control of the company and
cheap freight rater- overthe Pod Mountain railway. Being asked if Mr.
Ileinze had not made as good an oiler
on freight rates, lie answered, "Yes;
when he thought lie was forced to it.
But we don't care to be at his mercy in
such matters. He lias already made
us a reduction from *ll to $8,50 per ton
for freight and smelter treatment, and
we may give him enough at that figure
to keep his Trail smelter running."
-. .io Koo on American Ores.
When asked what his company
would do if the Canadian government
should put practically a prohibitive export duty ou ore, he replied: "Well,
wo thought of all that aud concluded
that if we couldn't run the Northport
smelter ou I.e Roi ore, we could conduct it as a customs smelter on American ores. The fact is, Northport is
such a good smeller point, that I heartily wish it were this side tho line. If
they compel us io do so wo may run
two smelters, ono somewhere this side
tho line, and rely upon Stuvons county
and Reservation ores lo supply our
Northport smelter.

United Stales Senator George Turner,
who is also heavily interested in the
Le Rbi, had become satisfied through
an interview held at Ottawa with Vice-
President Shau.ihuessy of the C. I'. R.,
that uo relief on freight rates, etc..
need be looked for from the Crow's

among the early probabilities for this
Dr. Duncan -tuted In an interview
that in incorporated cities like Kaslo,
their work was largely advisory and is
Intended to be co-operative with that
of the city council, In other places
their directions are mandatory and
mav be enforced by due process of law.
He commended the recent action of
the city council in improving tho sanitary condition of tlio city and said that
it is now fairly good. He advised that
until a satisfactory sewer system can
bo established that all the ]ieople pay
especial attention to the condition of
their outhouses. Ho recommended the
movable box, dry earth '.'loset as the
best preservative of health in the ab-
eonce of a good sewer system. He
stated further that the provincial sanitary regulations are how' very complete and satisfactory,   They are. mod
eled largely after those of Ontario and
the state of New York.

Death of i.oni Revelstoke.
Lord Revelstoke, from whose til le

are generally more anxious about the
decline in silver than the mine owners
or managers. Tho latter he says are
serene and conlident that this cloud
will soon blow over. Mr. Easson suggests that in tlie event of a continued
fall, rather than see the mines close
and lose their transportation the railroads could afford to lower their rates.

For some time there lias been a deal
pending for the Trade Dollar mine at Silver City, Idaho. It is now rumored that
the scope of the transaction has been ex-1
tended so as to take in the Black Jack
mine and  the property  of the Florida
Mountain Mining Company, these being '
on the same vein as the Trade Dollar.
The Trade Dollar was examined by Fred
Corning    some    months ago.     Recently
another   examination,   made   by F. N. j
Bradley, manager of the Hunker Hill &
Sullivan mine, in the Coeur d'Alenes. The
names of the principals have never been
disclosed, but it has been supposed that
they  were  the  owners  of  the  Hunker
Hill.    Humor now states it is the Stan- j
(laid Oil people who are intending to pur- !
chase.   The deal, according to the rumor,
also  embraces  the  railroad  being    constructed from Nampa to Silver City. The
Trade Dollar mine is paying nt the rate
of $400,000 a year, and the Black Jack
is also paying large dividends.   There are
three  mills in  the  group  of  properties.
If all  the  mines go  into the deal,  the j
price will  reach a large figure and the |
transaction will be    the    heaviest    ever j
made in this part of the state.
Copper-Gold Belt.
Within a mile of Sohon, Mont., is what
surface showings indicate as one of the |
finest properties in the whole copper-gold
belt of western Missoula county. It con- ,
sists of a group of 11 claims running;
from a point a little south from here
westward to the summit of the Hitter
Hoots���the Montana-Idaho line. These
are two parallel leads about 40 feet npart,
running the entire length of the claims,
that both show ore in varying quantities
wherever they crop. The lend has been
stripped at frequent intervals, but the |
only wink of much consequence is a tun-
nel on one of these that is in 180 feet.
It ran as a crosscut for 78 feet, where
the lead was cut, and the balance of the
way follows the lead through ore all the
way. A shaft was started up the hill
and 4")() feet further west, where ship- .
ping ore wis struck at a depth of _ix
feet. The shaft is now down '10 or 12,
and w ill he sunk a few feet further, when
they will return to tlie tunnel and drive
it iu until directly below the shaft. A
two-Story house 18x32 is now beins;
elected, and a wagon road built down to
Sohon. As soon as that work is done they
will go under ground, development work
being the main object, although the ship-!
ping ore taken from the tunnel will be
shipped as fast as sufficient quantities are
secured. The ledge shows ti variety of
rock, all carrying more or less copper.
One of tho favorite forms is black copper, repented assays on which have shown
more than 33 per cent copper. The variety of ore is so great that they will
have to make numerous tests before they
can tell what kinds will be profitable to
Sal.-   of   the   Morning   Mine.
It is learned that   Larson & (Ireen-

and the price is unknown.   The Morning
mine Iuih been  worked  under  lease  by j
Larson & Qreenough for the past two
years,    It was owned  by  a  Milwaukee
Syndicate, which bought it from the re-
oeiver of the old Spokane National bank. [
The Milwaukee people put in extensive ,

The French Creek MlnliiR Company,
now operating In the Hlg Bend, 1h capitalized Tor $2,000,000, and Is mostly controlled by five nr six people of Chicago and Milwaukee, says the Kootenai
Herald. It is operating two and a half
miles of ground on French creek, covering the well known Claims, Chicago,
Royal, Gold Hill, Honduras and Nugget. There ls an immense body of gravel there, and the cubic contents of the
body likely to pay well ls estimated
at 20,000,000 yards. The company have
a complete plant, costing $30,000, in
transit to the ground, and are pushing It through so as to have It nearly
all put ln by fall. But for the unusual
stages of water In the river this year
they would have been much sooner on
the ground, but they will be all ready
to wash next season. They have Installed a saw mill which has a capacity
of 10,000 feet per clay, and It Is now
cutting. They have about 60 men employed on flume work, of which they
are putting in about 2000 feet, and they
soon expect to have their pipe ln place
as the steamer Lytton has already taken up 20 tons of it to LaPorte. The
head of water will be 400 feet, and
washing will be started probably on
the Oold Hill claim. The company is
also working about 60 pack animals,
and Intends to have 75 or so packing
from LaPorte to French creek. Tom

Stopped the  Operation  of the Property for Twenty-Four Hour*.
Rossland, B. C��� Aug. 15. ��� At 3:30
o'clock yesterday afternoon an accident
happened to the hoist at the Le ttol
mine that delayed the working of the
property for about 24 hours. The engineer In charge ot the new hoist was
called away for a few minutes. In his
absence he directed another engineer, a
man who formerly had charge of the old
hoist, to look after the hoist, but not to
answer any bells to start until he returned. These Instructions were given
as the brake is working stiff, being
new. The substitute engineer heard a
bell and concluded he could run the machine, so started it up. When the hoist
arrived at the desired point the brake
refused to work and It continued to
ascend, going nearly to the roof nnd
tearing out a number of timbers. Some
of the ore was dumped down the shaft.
No one was hurt.
Superintendent Hall says that the
damage will be repaired by tonight and
the force will go back to work. Inasmuch as the mine had to be stopped for
24 hours, the company will fall behind
over a day's output. The usual output
ls 250 tons a day. At the time the accident happened only 171 tons had been

the Beech group, on Shamrock hill, and
have two and a half feet of solid ore
in the bottom of a prospect shaft on
the Beech. On the Missouri and Highland   there  Is also  a  good  showing.
Assessment work on the Shamrock
and Thistle gave encouraging results.
The Elmo, another claim on Shamrock
hill, has one of the biggest surface
showings of arsenical Iron In the district. Owing to the serious illness of
the owner, work has been discontinued
on this property.
The Crackerjack has nice ore, running about $10 in gold, with some silver and copper. The Red Hill and
Iron Mountain claims are also being
developed.'" Among the other claims on
which work Is being done are the Ontario and Trio, with four feet of quartz

j to his Inventive genlns.    He   Intends
! starting for Paris In a few days to lay
I before the authorities the scheme of his
j wheel, which he has little doubt will
be adopted.
The   device  consists of   a gigantic
: wheel 200 feet In height, nnd with   a
steel frame composed of a network of
braces.   Its structural detail   and  the
: towers whjeh support It look not unlike
the Ferris wheel.   The great difference
Is that, Instead of having cars suspended between the the two outer rims, or
the periphery of the wheel, this space
Is Inclosed and laid with stout flooring,
giving the wholetheappearanceof a gigantic bicycle wheel with a broad, tint
tire.   Upon this floor and iu the Inside
of the wheel is a great trough with
sides rising three feet above the bottom,
: and in this trough are laid stout steel
tracks.    Cars rest upon these   trucks,
and the object of the Invention ls to
cause these vehicles, filled with people,
to be carried up a certain distance Into
the air by the wheel, then shot down
; the incline with a speed of the wind
and up the other side by the force of
; the momentum.
The wheel begins to revolve from left
to right and the cur Is carried up about
i seventy feet to a point one-third the
j distance from the bottom to the top of
i the wheel.   The car Is gripped to the
i tracks with lateral arms, spreading out
on each side, and clamping themselves
tightly to the tracks and trough by the
turning of n lever ln the bands of a
motorman.   When tbe cars have reached the height of seventy feet the motor-
mau releases the lateral arms and the
vehicle shoots down the incline at a terrific rate of speed and up the other side,
the wheel stopping during the descent.
There Is a pond of wnter ln the Inside
troughs, which flows around at the lowest level It can And aud ls consequently
always at the bottom of the wheel. As
I the boat-like vehicle descends It dashes
through the wnter, reproducing the sensation experienced   In   "shooting   the
; chutes"   and   surrounding   the people
with a shower of spray, which does uot
wet them, because It ls hurled away
i from the car.   At night, when the wheel

Will  Fletcher nnd  W.   D,  McMillan,
says the Fort Steele Prospector, report
the finding of a huge lead (if grey copper and brittle sliver on Boulder creek,
a    tributary    of    Wild    Horse.      Mr.
Fletcher  suys:    "We  have  been  pros-
i peeling nil over  tbe district, and have
, made several locations In  the vicinity
: of Bull river and Tracy creek. We have
J crossed over Into the St. Mitiy's coun-
i try  nnd  found  good  ore  and  made  a
; number  of  locations.    Upon    pointers
! which  we  received  In   Steele, we  000-
I eluded tn prospect the eaBt fork of Wild
i Horse.    Upon  reaching  the  east   fork
| about   12   miles   from   Fort   Steele   we
found   a   large  contact   lying -between
slate and porphyry formation, extending  for miles In a northwesterly  and
southeasterly direction. This large contact is ln many places from 200 to 400
feet In width, and is mineralized more
or less through the ledge matter.    We
followed the trend of the contact In a
southeasterly     direction     to    Boulder
creek, a large tributary of Wild Horse.
In    crossing  the  Boulder    divide    we
found a large contact 26 feet and upwards    In    width of  quartz,  carrying
gray copper, arsenical copper and bromide of copper, brittle silver and gold.
The vein we traced a distance of 5000
feet and have made four locations.   It
is an excellent property  to  work  by
means of tunnels,  and  we shall  commence work at once to develop and open
up the claims."
electric lights, tlie effect of this mauy-
tluted spray will be most effective.
To add to the novelty of the ride Pat-
tee will arrange a tunnel extending half
way around the wheel. This will be
dimly lighted to give the appearance of
stars, and the cars will shoot into Its
black, cavernous mouth and half way
through tbe tunnel. Another turn of
the wheel Is made and the car shoots
through the tunnel and out to the uncompleted portion of the wheel.
Indian Languages.
"Like the buffalo, the Indian language wMl soon be lost forever," explained a gentleman, who, under the
auspices of tbe Smithsonian, has devoted a number of years to the study
and preset .-at Ion of the Indian language. "It was thought that the Indian language could be preserved by
the aid of the phonograph nnd grapno-
phono, and partial were sent out to
many Indian tribes to have them talk
Into the apparatus and thus secure a
record of the Indian tongue.
"It was found, however, that but
few Indians of the present day, nnd
they were the older ones, could talk a
pure tongue. More than one-hnlf of
the Indiana now on the reservations,
and this l�� the case with all of the
younger Indians, converse In Fnjjllsh.
It Is not good English, but It Is ill.
klnd they si>enk, n kind of pigeon English. I had the work of securing some
Cherokee talk, and ln doing so talked
with a dozen or more leading Chero-
"They admitted to me that they did
not know one Cherokee who could
speak pure Cherokee. They said It was
with the greatest difficulty tlmt they
could get tlie boys and girls to speak
In their native tongue at nil, or to learn
even the commonest wonls or phrases,
I arranged with a half dozen Chero-
kees, however, and secured their services to talk Into the machines, nnd
have thus got some pretty good Cherokee, but I know thnt It Is very imperfect Indian language.
"A few of the Sloux Indians talk pretty well, but it Is n mixture, lu less
���than twenty years I do not think there
will be an Indian In this counfy who
can talk his native ton.nc pure. As
far as the Indian children nre concerned, they use six English woi-ds
where they use one Indian word. The
machines of the day will record the
language if It Is talked Into them, but
the difficulty Is to get Indians who can
talk with the necessary degree of accuracy."��� Washington Star.

Is a natural printer. He Inherited his
love for the types nnd drew from his
father a love of the artistic. This feeling ls seen In the very beautiful specimens oi printing art whieh Mr. Orr has
turned out from his shop in New York.
He began life with a thorough education ln the printing office, and learned
every detail of the trade. He became
a rapid and accurate typesetter, a skillful pressman, nnd acquired tbe keenest
appreciation of the nrtlstlc lu the getting together of his work. When the
days of his apprenticeship came to an
end he set out on his wanderings, and
entered the employ of a big envelope

set up ln business for himself ln the
Massachusetts city, but It was not until
he opened his shop In New York that
he took his place beside those great

The log of the Mayflower ls to be given to the people of the United States,
and to be deposited in Pilgrim Hall at
Plymouth, Mass., or in some other safe
place to be designated by the President.
It ls an account of tbe voyage of the
Mayflower, and a history of the Plymouth colony from 1002 to 1046, written by Gov. William Bradford, and
handed down in his family through four
generations. Massachusetts was originally a part of the diocese of London,
and this manuscript, with others, found
Its way to the library of the See of London, where It was discovered ln 1846.
It contains a registry of births, marriages and deaths of Pilgrims, and records about their property. The President, through tie American embassador, asked that It be given to the United
States. The Archbishop of Canterbury
and the Bishop of London backed the
embassador's request, and on March 25
a consistory court of the diocese of London determined to hand over the log to
Mr. Bayard whenever he was ready to
receive It. The only conditions of the
transfer are that n photographic, certified copy of the book shall be left with
the present custodian of It, and that the
original shall be put In a safe place
where persons concerned can have access to It.

When Congress "settled" the nrmor-
plate problem by fixing $300 a ton as
the limit of the price to be paid to plate
manufacturers It neglected to consult
the platemakers. The other day Secretary Long of the navy department
opened the bids for about 0,000 tons
needed for uew battleships. Two letters, coming from the greatest nnuor-
makliiK concerns In America, politely
declined to make plate nt the price
specified. A third company accepted
the terms, but hedged Its offer around
with so many conditions that It can
hardly be acceptable. Secretary Long
has now referred the whole matter
Imck to Congress, stating three propositions by which the plate may be secured. One Is to give the contract for
twenty years to the Illinois Steel Company, and pay the company a forfeit
whenever the armor plate purchased
falls below 6,000 tons a year; the other
ls for the government to buy or build
a plant of Its own, and the third Is to
raise the price limit so thnt all manufacturers may deem It worth while to
compete. Thus Is the glorious and enlightened nation "up a stump" on the
armor-plate question. It may stick to
its original figures and pay dearly for
the privilege, or it may raise tbe price
at the behest of the more powerful
manufacturing concerns. In either
event It ls likely to pay Just as much
as It did before Congress sought to
make a bargain ln the plate business.
The only benefit resulting from the
action of Congress may be that the
powerful companies will be somewhat
less dictatorial and Independent than
they formerly were. But even this
benefit Is not assured.

Charles Kean Capped It.
When Charles Keen wns playing the

grimaces lu character paralyzed all the
other actors with fright, much to his:
Ou one occasion a new man had to
take the part of the sentinel who
awoke Richard. When asked, "Who Is
there?" he had to say, "'Tis I, my
lord; the village cock hath twice proclaimed the hour of morn.' '
But aa Kean was making such (earful grimaces and scowling at him, the
poor fellow forgot his part, and could
only stammer, " 'Tis I, my lord, the���

By this time there was a decided tit-

Silver establishes another new low
record this week as will be noted by
the foregoing schedule. The Indications ol manipulation to force silver
downward are growing stronger every
day. Cumulative evidences of this ap-
pear in tlie fact that Lombard street
co-operates throughout with Wall
street; and despite their cautious movements, hardly a day passes but news

silver mines in Mexico, the United
SUitc-s and Canada, by the Rolhehilds

organizations in the United states

one tillu_r: a present Bqueeze and a
future rise in silver by which tho

The new St. i'aneras Inn, Kaslo's
latest high toned hotel,opened its doors
to the public lust Wednesday evening
wit.li a complimentary ball and supper
to the people of Kaslo and 'the Slocan
country. Manager Shaw with his os-
timable and accomplished wife and
eldest daughter, Miss Anna Shaw, constituted a most urbane reception committee, making every one feel at home
the moment the threshold was crossed.
The office lobby, dining room and the
large balony overlooking the lake were
the lirst iloor resorts. The lobby contained long tables spread with refreshments, the dininjr room was decorated
for a ball room witli Hags and flowering plants, and the wide, long lako
balconj was hung with Japanese lanterns and covered with easy chairs,
making an ideal twilight trystlng
place for youth and beauty.
The second and third floors, reached
by a broad, easy, richly carpeted
stairway has been fully described before in these columns. The handsome
parlor and large airy guest chambers
elegantly furnished, well repaid those
who strolled up stairs to take a view
of the appointments of the  new house.
The throng in attendance was largo,
representative and good humored.
Every number of the two dozen dances
on the tasty bill program was heartily
enjoyed by the many who kept time to
tho line dance music furnished by
Church's orchestra. Some of the
ladies toilettes were very handsome
and quite a number of claw hammer
coats were in evidence among the gentlemen, with a dash of color added, by
a representee of Canada's mounted
police in brilliant scarlet. The dance
continued until ���') a. tn. The supper
was a foretaste of tho things gastronomic which Manager Shaw has in

An Article From  the  Xclson .Miner
Needing Correction.
The two musical Scotch lassos who
under the Stage name of the "Sisters
May fair", havo recently entertained
the local public at the Kaslo hotel aud
at the Church of England concert, are
now playing daily on the steamer "International" plying between Kaslo
und Nelson. Considerable interest has
been manifested as to their personal
history and several newspaper scribes
have tried their hands at romancing
about them, generally with misleading
Tho Nelson Miner's recent article
concerning them, for instance, needs
amendment in one or two important
particulars,   it Baysi
"Although they appeared to be children and wore short frocks, these
charming musicians are said to be _u
years old. The girls come from Edinburgh. Scotland, and an effort has been
made by thoir friends in the old country to havo them return home. They
are well educated and have good connections, but are rather inclined to be
romantic. The elder one,tho brunette,
eloped last May with a man named
Keid, who was in Kovolstokc when last
heard of. The younger one, Miss Jean
Crawford, a pretty blonde, accompanied the couple to this country. Straitened circumstances compelled the girls
to avail themselves of their musical
talents, with the result that they are
making a tour of the Kootenay district,
giving public entertainments. Hore
and at Kossland they met with great
success. Before they left Nelson, a
cablegram arrived which revealed the
history of the girls. Tho police and
Magistrate Crease endeavored to por-
Suade the younger one to return to
Scotland, but withoul avail. She
stated that she liked tho life she is
leading and intends to continue it.''
Mrs. Koid, referred to   above, better
known by her stago name of Miss Lou
Mayfair,  readily  admits   that   she is
married and says that she  wa.s wedded
to Mr. Keid four years ago   when she
]ji\ was 16 years old.    Her irelationa with
'���   hor husband, who is said to be industrious and rospectable, and who is a bookkeeper at Kevelstoko, appear to bo entirely   amicable.    That   she   and  her
friend Miss   Crawford   havo   found  it
i^ necessary to put their musical  talents
*L' to practical uso to help make   a   living
is nothing against   them,   and   hardly,
justlllos the   curiosity   that   prompted
the wiring of a cablegram to   Scotland
and return to leurn more about   them,
The girls are quits well-behaved and
entirely   free from  tho  objectionable
characteristics that attach to some va-
f,i rloty actresses.    Mrs. Keid has a sweet
/ well modulated voice which is hoard to
\\good advantage In the simple scotch
U ballads that she lings. Sin: Is also a
^.graceful dancer. Miss ( 'raw ford is sov-
oral years younger   and   is   a   skillfti

j player on the mandolin, on which they
jure both proficient.

New Police Magistrate to Be-
Sewerage System in Prospect
Expropriation Bylaw No. if Finally Passed-
Offlees Needing Filling.
The city council mot in regular session last evening. Present, Mayor
(Ireen and aldermen Buchanan, Cameron and Coodenough.
City Clerk Chipman notified the
council of his intention to resign the
office of police magistrate, as soon as
they could agree upon a man to recommend as his successor. This course
was dictated by his constantly increasing duties. The council thereupon
agreed to recommend the niunoof ,f. B.
McKillican to the lieutenant governor for such appointee. Mr. McKillican is at present associated with Henry
Croft & Co. of this city, is a very agreeable gentleman and has had experience
In this line.
Chairman Buchanan of the Water
and Sanitary committee made a report
concerning several matters, the most
Important of which was the recommendation that in accordance with the
advice of Dr. Duncan, secretary of the
Provincial Hoard of Health, investigations for a sewerage system be at
once inaugurated and that Civil Engineer Crammings be employed to investigate and report to the council on methods and cost. The roport with its recommendations, was adopted.
Expropriation bylaw No. 4-1 for the
condemnation of ten foot of private
property on each side of A avenue was
finally passed, all voting aye. Before
the final vote Alderman Buchanan in-
quired of the Public Works committee if they wore fully informed of the
possible consequences of this bylaw
and as to what trouble 'might bo entailed upou the city by tho probable
litigation to arise from it. The parties
who intended to test the right of the
city to do this would likely sot up the
plea that there had been no petition
filed for this law, and no public necessity existed for it. He further inquired is they woro quite sure that a
bylaw of this sort need not. be submitted to the people. Alderman Coodenough chairman of tbo Public Works
committee replied that they were acting on tho city solicitor's opinion that
they were competent to do this and
that it was right and legal.
Mayor (ireen called attention of the
council to the condition existing with
reference to tho oflices of city treasurer
police commissioner, and license eom-
misseoner. Blither resignations had
been liled or absences'from city rendered it desirable to fill those oflices soon.
Permission was granted business
men on Front street between -Ith aud
5th to put in a cross walk at their own
Alderman Buchanan called attention
to tho bad sanitary condition of tho
back yards of several hotels and the
mayor advised that the city scavenger
and police make a daily Inspection of
these premises horeafter.
Public Si'iitmi Hatters,
The public schools re-opened last
week with (18 pupils���_!) in tho primary
department under Miss McTaggart in
tho Presbyterian church and 30 in the
higher grades under Mr. Heslop at
tho old school house. After teaching
one day Miss McTaggart received word
of the serious illness of hor mother at
Victoria and returned there, her pupils
being turnl'd over to Mr. Heslop, who
has sineo had charge of tho whole
school. Tho primary quarters at the
Presbyterian church are meantime being temporarily occupied by tho select
kindergarten and primary school of
Mrs. Tinner and Miss Rogers.
V. R Archer & Co, have the contract
for laying tho water pipe to tho now
school s'to on C avonuo and Itth street,
a distance of about 850 foot from the
main. Tho new grounds cover 1 l-.'l
acres. The trustees have already spent
$ltlli in clearing and preparing the
grounds, the money for whieh was partially raised by public subscription.
The government appropriation for the
building was only $4,000. As all but
$2011 of this was awarded tho contractors for building purposes, little will be
left for grading the grounds, furnishing the building, etc., and it is likely
that tho government will be callod
upon for a now appropriation.
U, L. Ettinger, an attorney of Colfax, Wash., and one of the owners of
the Rambler-Cariboo, passed up the

Last Tuesday Tho Crescent, one of

Tho stock of dry goods and clothing appears to be very complete. The managers in charge aro A. B. Huelat and
W. B. Bray, both of whom are experienced dry goods and clothing men.
Their opening was largely attdtided
and since then their trade has also been
very satisfactory, although tbis is conceded to bo the dull season of tho year
in such lines���a little too late for summer trade and somewhat too early for
fall trade. The Crescent starts out
with the full intention and expectation
of meriting and receiving the best patronage of Kaslo and vicinity.

recent visit to this region of General
Traffic, Manager Kerr of the C. P. K.
was to attempt the arrangement of
rates for the handling of IJosslarid
ores, via Kobson, for the Pilot Hay and
Halls Mines smelters. The Omaha &
Grant people have asked the transportation companies for a rate that will
allow them to use tho low grade pro-
duet of the Trail Creek district, claiming that the existing tariff ever tho

economical smelting and active competition w-ith other ore buyers in the
Kossland camp. Before leaving Mr.

The White House.
tYiishlticton correspondence:
There Is no house lu all the land to
which the eyes of the American people turn with more Interest than to the
owe which for almost a century has
been Ihe home of their Presidents-
the White House nt Washington.
When l.'Kiifnut laid out tne plan of
this beautiful city, it ls evident that
he had iu mind the old Babylon of
Scriptural magnificence, Jefferson,
however, had procured abroad plans
of foreign capitals���Paris, Marseilles,
Milan. Versailles and others���and before submitting his own he consulted
these, and from them he took the topography of Versailles, and then introduced the broad transverse avenues, the circles, open squares and triangular reservations which resulted
in producing this city of "magnificent
At the foot of one of these reservations the White House stands. There
nre twenty acres in what is known ns
the President's grounds, fronting on
Pennsylvania avenue ami directly facing the lovely Lafayette square and
running south to tlie Potomac river.
The house was designed by the famous
Architect Hoban, and wns constructed
under the personal supervision of
George Washington. He officiated at
the Masonic ceremonies when the corner stone was laid, and he hail the sat-
tal chandeliers. On the walls are the
painting of Washington (which Dolly
Madison had cut from the frame carried from the White House when the
British were nt its very gates in 1812),
nnd those of Martha Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln. This room ls a
marvel of beauty when It is prepared
for the official receptions, Then the
window recesses are tilled with tall
palms, the mantles nnd mirror rests
nre banked with cut flowers, while
from the chandeliers are hung ropes
of dainty asparagus and smllnx, and
woven through them are hundreds of
tiny varied colored electric lights, the
whole presenting a picture which
might grace the Arabian Nights. It
wns in this room, near the large east
windows, that Nellie Grant's marriage,
which afterwards proved so unhappy,
was solemnized.
Lending from the East Room is the
Green Room, so named from the tinting which prevails in its furnishing
and decorations. On its walls hangs
the picture of Mrs. Hayes, which wa.s
presented to the Government by the
Woman's Christian Temperance Union,
because she was the lirst mistress of
the White House who turned hor wine
glass upside down at the dinners given
there, although since then Mrs. Cleveland hns done the same. The Ufe-slze
painting of Mrs. Harrison also hangs
ln this room, nnd is one of the most artistic pieces of work in the house.
The next in this suite of state parlors
ls one about which a pccullnr charm
attaches���the Bine Room. For it ls
here thnt the receiving pnrty stand for
the official receptions, and it ls here
that President nnd Mrs. Cleveland were
married. It ls in this room, too, where
the diplomats, in their gorgeous attire,
nwalt for the President to receive them
first on New Year's Day. The room
has been the scene of a thousand and
one other Interesting events. In the
illustration can be seen the "Golden
Gate," over which the eager public
lean to cntch a glimpse of the receiving
party after having passed through the
rooms themselves; and beyond It ls a
glimpse of tho Tiffany screen.
Opening off the Blue ls the Red
Room; this was Mrs. Cleveland's favorite of all of the downstairs rooms,
and she gave It a more home-like air
than any of the others possessed. She
filled It with bric-a-brac, her own books
and so forth, and often here received
her guests. Mrs. McKlnley prefers the
library above stairs, which is a delightfully charming, sunshiny room, nnd
the view from Its south windows of the
isfaetlon of walking through It with
Mrs. Washington after Its completion,
a few weeks previous to his death. This
building wns burned by the British ln
1812, but rebuilt In 1815.   With the ex-
; coptlon of Washington, It has been the
home of every President the United
States has had. The structure Is built
of sandstone painted white, and is severely plain lu Its exterior. It is two
Stories high, with a basement, nnd is
of the Grecian style of architecture.
On Ihe north, which Is the front side,
, Is nn Imposing port coebsre, and a
grand portico supported by Ionic columns, while on the south Is a setul-clr-
ctiliir colonnade.
But If tlie exterior is plnln, the Interior Is sufficiently magnificent to
compensate for It. The heavy black
walnut front doors, with their slhlued
glass windows, open Into a spacious
corridor, the floor of Which Is of mosaics In different colored stone. In
the rear, and separating It from the
: red corridor, ls the famous Tiffany
screen, which Is one of the most beautiful pieces of work of Its kind in the
i world, and which was designed nnd
made by Louis Tiffany.   An Idea of its
i cost may be obtained from the fact
; that at one of Mrs. Cleveland's last
receptions, ln the crush of people, two
of the small pieces of glass were
broken out, and It cost $25 to have simply the two replaced. It Is ln this corridor that the Marine Band Is stationed
j when playing for the President's din-
i ners and receptions.
The Bast Room.
To the east of this corridor,   and
across the hall which leads upstairs, Is
| the well-known East Room, go historic
ln its associations, so filled with the
memory of the great men who have
j trodden Us floor!  It Is finished ln Gre-
> clan style, and the woodwork ls deco-
| rated ln white and gold.   The celling
i ls divided into three panels, and from
! the center of each hang massive crys-
Whlte lot, the Monument, Potomac
and the blue hills of Virginia beyond
cannot be surpassed for loveliness.
On the walls of the lower floor hang
pictures of all of the Presidents, as
well as many of their wives.
The state dining-room opens from
the Red Room, and across the hall ls
the stnnller one used by the family,
both handsome apartments and furnished ln fine dlnlng-rooin paraphernalia. To the west of the house Is the
conservatory, and probably more rare
exotics are grown there than within
tho same space elsewhere In the country.
The upper corridor Is used by the
President's fnmlly as a sitting-room,
and off from It Is tho library and the
five sleeping rooms, which make up the
number thnt the limited space of the
historic old mansion can spare for that
purpose. The eastern part of the upstairs Is given to offices; over the East
Room Ib the President's private office,
from which the carpet has been worn
almost threadbare by tbe feet of the
many office-seekers since the 4th of
March, while leading out of it ls his
secretary's office, end beyond that the
room ln which the Cabinet meet. On
the other side of the, corridor are other
offices, while this corridor Is the waiting room for those who wish to see the
President when he Is busy.

from Jerusalem to the Monastery of
Mar Baba, Thence to the Forda of
the Jordi n - On the Plain* of
Journey to  the Jordan.
A pleasure Jaunt to the Dead Sea Is
a novelty ln these days, when novelty
has lost its edge. Yet, there ls such a
thing, and, during the season, travelers who desire to make the Journey
from Jerusalem to the neighborhood
where Lot lost his wife may do so with
as little discomfort as the climate, the
bad roads and the horseback traveling
will permit.
The tourist who wishes to "take In"
the Dead Sea as one of the sights of
Palestine will be roused at his hotel In
the City of David before 5 o'clock In
the morning, and will find his dragoman waiting at the door with as many
of the small Syrian horses as may be
needed for the party that proposes to
make the Journey. It Is very seldom
that a tourist goes alone, for traveling
In the East is expensive, and an excursion of this kind would cost three or
four travelers much less In proportion
than it would cost one. Mounting at
the hotel door, the party goes rattling
along the narrow streets of Jerusalem.
Two hours' ride from the hotel down
through the gorge excavated by the
Brook Kedron brings the party to the
Turkish guardhouse on the road to the
Jordan, where he Is met by the unspeakable Turk In force, for all the
garrison for the time being, whether
on duty or not, come out to meet the
travelers and bid them welcome.   The
cordiality is purely mercenary, however, for the Turkish and Kurdish
troops have no more love for the Christian tourist than for the Armenian
peasant, and, If It were their Interest
to do so, would, with neatness and
dispatch, cut the throats of all the
party, pillage their baggnKe and throw
their bodies over the nearest precipice.
But even Turks learn something by
experience, and the Turks of the
guardhouse on the road to the Jordan
have learned thnt It ls more profitable
to protect than to plunder travelers, so
but It has abundant accommodations
for the hundreds of pilgrims who Hock
from Jerusalem to the Jordan nnd
back again. There ls no charge for
food or lodging, but If anyone supposes
that the monastery loses money by entertaining travelers, or that the Abbot
lies awake nights worrying about
where the supiiort of the brethren Is
to come from, he is greatly mistaken,
for the clever Greek monks, while
claiming to run n free boarding house
for tramp pilgrims, have managed to
make the establishment not only a paying Institution, but one of the wealthiest communities In the East.   It Is os-
cordlng to the popular legends, Christ
was baptized, and here the Russian
pilgrims fill their bottles with water
from the Jordan, to be taken home as
a holy relic. At another Ib shown the
tree which Zaccheus climbed to get
nbove the heads of the crowd; at still
another are a few scattered stouts,
stated to be those of the Identical walls
which fell at the blast of the Jewish
trumpets. A cave ln the side of a hill
Is stoutly affirmed to be the veritable
hole ln the ground Into which Lot retreated after the destruction of the
cities of the plain, while beneath the
waters of the sea a few hewn stones,
tentatlously given out that entertainment ls free for all who come, but before the tourist leaves the confines of
the monastery he ls made aware that
any contribution he feels willing to
make In aid of the poor brethren will
be gratefully received. Of course, every tourist takes the hint, and even
from the poorer classes of pilgrims,
who go afoot and have little to spare,
the shrewd monks contrive to get
Prom the towers of Mar Saba It Is an
easy ride to the tomb of Moses, which
marks the end of the hill country of
Judea and the beginning of the plains
of Jericho. The tomb ls a Mohammedan mosque on the site of a Christian
monastery that dated from the days
of the Crusades. It is not an Imposing
structure, low, flat and without architectural pretensions, but enjoys great
repute In the world of Islam as a
shrine of unusual sanctity. The tact
that the real grave of Moses was unknown even to the Jews of his own dny
cuts no figure ln this case, for, during
the age of the Crusades, miracles were
common, nnd when the desirability of
a shrine became manifest It wns an
easy matter to make a miraculous discovery of the grave, the location of
which was so revealed to a monk In a
dream, the monastery established, and
afterword appropriated by the Turks.
The plains of Jericho are the private
property of the Sultan; are tilled for
his benefit by the local peasantry, und
are kept free from grasshoppers by a
primitive    and    thoroughly    oriental
rbnki mIIim *n*\
they extend a hearty welcome to the
tourists, Invite them In nnd offer them
cups of black coffee. Coffee, In all
parts of the Ottoman Empire, Is always on tap, aud the traveler who accepts a cup from a geus-d'nrme, by
thnt act engages the man as his protector during the Journey to the Dead Sea
and return. No one ventures even so
far as the Jordan without an armed
escort, for the road from Jerusalem to
Jericho Is as badly Infested with
thieves now as when the good Samaritan went that way and picked up the
luckless tourist who ventured to make
the Journey without an escort. Even
now It sometimes happens that overconfident travelers come to grief, and
a recent party met on their way a
couple of English tourists who had fallen among thieves who carried out the
Scripture program almost to the letter,
stripping them of their raiment, save
a shirt apiece, and departing, leaving
them unwounded, It ls true, but half
dead under the responsibility of getting back to town with no more clothing than that left to them by the plunderers.
About half way between the Holy
OUy and the Sea of the Dead the party
���tops for the night at the Monastery of
Mar Saba. It is a gloomy looking
place, half fortress, half monastery,
method. When the storks make their
first appearance in the spring, the Inhabitants know that the grasshoppers
will not be long In coming, and the local supervisor sends word to the Pasha
In Jerusalem that the 'hopper crop is
nearly ready. As soon as the Pasha
feels equal to the necessary exertioi
he sends word to the men of the villages nearest to the Jordan to hold
themselves In readiness to protect the
Sultan's crops. When the 'hoppers begin to move, all the population turns
out In force, armed with sticks, brooms,
poles, brush, bunches of cane and similar means of offensive warfare, and,
forming a line, advances on the 'hopper infested district. Every grasshopper that can be found ls killed, and
after the carnage, which generally lasts
only a day or two, the pest ls subdued,
and the people go back to their homes.
The Jericho plains are singularly fertile, and under any other rule than that
of the Turk would be one of the choice
garden spots of Palestine. Now, little
Is grown there save wheat, which ls
produced In quantity and of quality
unknown elsewhere ln the Holy Land.
Midway through the flats runs the
Jordan, and tradition has pointed out
ln the vicinity of Jericho and along Its
fertile plain many spots noted ln sacred lore.   At one pool In the river, ae-
still In position, as a wall, are supposed
to mark the location of one of the
doomed cities.
The Immediate neighborhood of the
Sea of the Dead presents few attractions to the tourist, and does not Invite a stay of more than a few hours.
Not a bird In the air, not a fish ln the
sea, not a sign of life along Its shores,
but a glimmering above the waters
from the constant evaporation, Intense
heat, reflected from the rocks and
waters, and utter silence. The sea
well deserves Its name, and after a
survey of the vicinity It ls cay to understand why the dwellers in the plains
of Jericho believe the region to rest
under a perpetual curse, nnd that,
after nightfall, It is Infected by the
uneasy ghosts of the wicked dwellers
In Sodom and Gomorrah.
But the old superstitions are rapidly
fading out ln the light of modern improvement which reaches even the vi-
cinlty of the Dead Sea. Jericho has
two good hotels, a railroad is projected
to connect the city with Jerusalem,
and when this is finished the Journey
will be reduced from four or five days
to as ninny hours, and the conductors'
cry "All aboard for Jericho and *ne
Dead Sen" will nttrnct the attention
of ten times as many tourists as al
present toil over the rough and dangerous road which leads from the Holy
City to the fords of the Jordan.
