When Sir William Harcourt was a
young man ho once paid a visit to Lord
Beaconsfield, or, as ho was then, Disraeli, and on Sunday went with his
host to the village church. "My
friend, the vicar," said Disraeli, in explanation of that functionary's high
church tendencies, "will take what I
call a collection and he calls an offertory; and afterward what I call a plate

A short enquiry into the occult effect
(if drink is opportune in view of the
liquor question boing uppermost now
in the public mind. I am entering
now, howover, upon a subject that
many will scoff at, many deny as being
inharmonious with their interpretation
of tho Scriptures, only a few will see
that such things seom reasonable.
They are subscribed to by all tho
prophets, seers, mystics and poets both
of old and down the corridors of time
to date, as anyone can seo who will
study the esoteric meaning of their
writings. Tho above verse is Bllfflol-
out l.v clear and occult science proves
beyond a doubt on thu material plane,
that wo aro surrounded by unseen intelligences who work for woe and are
ready at all times to take advantage of
loss of moral balance and "drag man
down to their own level. Man in perfect physical and moral health is like
I unto a well poised pair of scales, there
is a magnillcont balance when, bow-
��� over, moral weaknoss comes there is
I immediato disturbance and he at ouco
j opens tho door to attack from these in*
siduous foes. Now, what an' these
foes? Whence eomo they ? They. '9
the earth-bound spirits of those deported who, having llvbd live* ot sensuality, and having totally ignored
their higher natures, find themselves
unable to rise.when on tho other plane,
and being held there by the operation
of immutable law, seek to gratify their
evil lusts through tho medium of tho
living, who, through weakness as bo-
fore stated, render theniBolves thus
liable; drunkards, sensualists, idiots
are of that class which become obsessod
or as tho Old Testament has it, possessed of devils, and it was tho casting
out of these devils by The Christ which
was considered then, as now, as supernatural. Spiritualistic mediums are a
class who render themselves thus liable
and few escape being eventually drag-
god down to regions whoro hell itself
and all its horrors is endured as a penalty of entering regions without spiritual guidance. ,
In a manual, "Man and His Bodies,"
it ia written:
"Drunkards who have -lost their
"physical bodies, and can therefore no
"longer satisfy their hateful longing
"for intoxicants, hang arcund places
"where drink is taken, and around
"those who tako it, endeavoring to
"push themselves into tho bodies of
"people wbo aro drinking and thus to
"share tho low pleasure to whloh thoy
"surrender themselves. Women of refinement would shrink from their
"wineB if they could see the loathly
"creatures they set up with, beings ot
"the most disgusting kind. Evil ele-
"mentals cluster round the thoughts
"of drunkards clad in elemental essence, while the physical body
"attracts to itself from the surround-
"ing atmosphere other gross particles
"given off from drunken and profligate
"bodies and these also are built into it,
"coarsening and degrading it.
.Man follows the currents of his desires so that the drunkard on the other
side will be fpund in tho saloon, the
profligate in the brothel and the rich
man in the countiug house, etc. It is
well therefore to understand the laws
that govern excesses of all kinds and to
which wo are most of us susceptible,
for can we not all truly say with the
great apostle "For that which 1 do I
allow not, tor what I would I do not,
but what I bate that I do,"
At Home and Abroad--Civi
British Columbia  Invited   to  Send a
Display to thc Greater Britain
ships were not destroyed in battle, but
wero destroyed by fire.
Senor Aunon and his staff in uniform
met Admiral Cervera and party at the
ailroad depot. The admiral halted
before the minister, saluted, and said
stiffly: "I am at tho orders of your excellency. I shall present myself to the
ministry today, as is my duty."
Mr. William Thompson, the  mining
engineer, has  seen the  premier   and
Hon. Mr. Cotton   for  the   purpose   of
pointing out to them the advisability
of making a provincial mining display
at tho Great Britain  exhibition   to be
hold at Karl's Court,London, next year.
As business was bringing him   to this
province, Mr.Thompson was requested
by the London  ch-atubur  of mines   to
bring the matter to the  attention   of!
the Canadian government, with a view
to having this part of the Empire make
as good a showing as   possible.   From
his position as a  mining engineer, Mr.
Thompson's views ou the matter must
bear a  great deal  of weight.   Referring   to  tho   matter   yesterday   Mr.
t Thompson poiuted out that the province, by not  exhibiting, would   lose a
most valuable opportunity to aBsist tho
mining   industry.     Eor  example, the
exhibit of minerals from the  colonies
at the Indian and Colonial exhibition
had beon followed by   a wonderful   increase in the attention paid by English
investors in the mining industry of the
colonies.   It would pay hotter, he was
sure,to sond such an exhibit to the Groat
Britain exhibition than to Paris.   The
reason   was   that   people   went to tho
World's Fair to be amused, and there
was no timo to pay much attention to
any one section.    Besides, it is London
whoro tho  colonies   look   largely  for
mining capital, and what better chance
could thoy havo than to send a display
to an exhibition  such as  it was   proposed to hold in London? So impressed
were the Australian JcolonleB with this
view that Queensland alone has asked
for 30,000 feet of space, moro than all
Canada had asked for the Paris exhibition, and tho sister colony of Victoria
decided not to exhibit at Paris, but to
bend all her energies to make as creditable a display as possible iu London.
Touching on tho subject of mining
ln British  Columbia, Mr. Thompson
spoke very encouragingly of the future,
and gave a high opinion of the mineral
resources  of  tho  province.    At  the
same time, he sounded a warning note
against tho practice of many men with
prospects holding out for  prices   altogether too  exorbitant, and thus  pre-
qenting capital from  taking  hold  in
many  instances  where  money would
otherwise be obtainable.

Paris, Sept. 22.���The situation hero
is generally admitted to be grave by
both pross and people. The conflict

charge of forgery and of using forged
documents, has assumed a grave aspect,
on account of the circumstances attending this intervention of tho military authority with that of tho civil
courts. A majority of the papers denounce tho military coup with varying
degrees of severity.

Experience Shows That it is not Necessary to the Soldier.
While  Borne  of  the English homo
churches still look askanee at him who "'
suggests total abstinence from liquor,
it would seem that the  experience  of
t'enerals who lead troops in   the   field
in actual  warfare   contributes   to  decided respect for total  abstinence doctrines and practice.   A study hus been
made of soldiers who now are   in   the
presence of the enemy   in  the  Upper
Nile, with surprising results.  Sir Herbert   Kitchener  now   commands    in
Egypt with marked  intelligence  and
success.   Tho general, not long ago,
ordered  certain    observations  to  be
made as to the uso  of liquor  by his
troops.   He caused one regiment in a
brigade to go  utterly   without  stimulants, while ho permitted another regiment in the samo   brigade to  drink a
regular ration of the stronger   liquors,
and still another regiment in tho same
brigade to drink malt liquors only. Results wero   then   compared  very carefully, and it was ascertained that users
of -strong   drink would   exhibit   more
dash for one, two or  three  days and
then begin to  fail, showing at  least a
marked degree of lacissitude  and  inability to enduro continued, strain Tho
beer drinkers showed   the   same   contrasts, though there was   less room for
marked reaction, while total abstainers excelled from   tho  first  in  vigor,
alertness and endurance.
Theso results, while not assumed until trials had been thorough and repeated under varying circumstances,
induced the British government to forbid the spirit and beer ration entirely,
and to discouutonanco the use of all
stimulantwhatever by officers also. It
is expressly stated that the experiments were not made upon principle,
but were ordered upon a strictly scientific and practical basis, the aim boing
to ascertain just- what is best for tbe
service and for both officers and men.
The steadiness with which the troops
have made notable forced marches
across burning sands and under broiling suns, and havo faced and endured
prolonged 'exposure to the fire of tho
enemy, has entirely satisfied the British army authorities that liquor and
beer are not among things needful for
army outfits, and really are enemies to
good service.
The British admiralty has not pronounced against the uso of liquors in
the navy, but it is quito sure to give
attention to these results obtained by
experiments in the army. While it is
difficult to make some people see the
the binding force of conscientious conviction on the liquor question, the
practical argument wil] have influence
with them.���Northwestern Canadian

Pint Dividend 1'ald.
The Republic Mining Company declared
ils first dividend yesterday. The amount
is $30,000, or three cents per share, nnd it
will be paid October I", transfer books
closing October i. The dividend hns been
anticipated for some time, as it was
known that the mine had shipped enough
ore to pay ull indebtedness and to leave
u handsome surplus in the treasury.
It is the intention of the company to
pay a dividend regularly each month and
the amount is not ex|iected to fall below
three cents per share, lt is more probable that it will be considerably above
that sum in the near future. It is the
intention to set the figure at n sum which
the  management   feels  confident  can   be
kept up regularly.

a strike recently made in  that vicinity
as follows; Four miles from Chelan Falls,
in manner prescribed by the rails of the
department; (2) plat of adverse il.iim
was not made by a deputy United Slates
mineral surveyor; (3) no showing as lo
value and ownership of labor and improvements upon the claims as required
by the rules of the department. These
objections were sustained by the commissioner of the general land office. The
secretary of the interior now overrules
the decision und holds that the adverse as
presented at the local land office by Mc-
Fadden was sufficient and that it was not
necessary for a deputy Unted States mineral surveyor to make survey and plat
which was filed with the adverse.
The secretary follows the decision in
the case of Anchor et al. vs. Howe et al.,
50th Federal Reporter, 360.
The secretary further holds that rules
made by the commissioner of the general
land office can not be binding when said
rules exceed the scope of the law, therefore the rule requiring that a deputy
United States mineral surveyor shall
make plat and  survey  for  an   adverse

was troubled with bloating. I was a

taken local treatments, but still was na

Their  Viuiis-s,  Are  Derived From  the
Untie*  of  Old  Tiuiea.
The lowest and the highest of the officers of a company bear titles derived from
thc samo word. Captain and corporal are
both derived from caput, a head. Captains and corporals are, therefore, bead
men. The word from which captain is
immediately derived is the medieval Latin capitaneus, a head num. German
bauptinan and Polish betman carry the
same idea.
Lieutenant is French for placeholder.
He serves in place of another, taking the
place of his superior when occasion demands.
A major was once a captain major, or
superior captain, just as now the highest
noncommissioned officer is a sergeant-major. The captain was long ugo dropped
from tlio compound title and the major
alone retained. A general was one whose
command was over the army in general.
From general officer the title came to be
simply general.
I     Until recently sergeant was held to bo
'from the Persian sarjnnk, a subordinate
military officer, thus being the only one
of our military titles not traceable to a
Latin source.
Colonel is from the medieval Latin coro-
nella, a diminutive of columna, a column.
j A colonel was an officer who marched at
1 tbe head of the column.
Most of the navy titles that differ from
army titles explain themselves. Ensign
is an old title obsolete in the land forces
but still preserved in the army. Admiral
comes to us from the Spanish, who borrowed it from the Arabic admiralbarrh,
commander at sea. Commodore is a corruption of the Spanish and Portuguese
commendador, a knight, a commander, so
our two highest naval titles come from
the despised Iberian peninsula.

SIR���With regard to tho hoavy taxation of development companies for
registering, does the government of
British Columbia consider it wrong to
have our claims and prospects developed ? Or do they think that a company is not the proper way to develop
them ? Can they suggest a better way?
Does not a shipping mino pay the best
wages ? And the more miues thore are
in a camp the better, if success is to be
obtained by perseverance and a mine
can only bo developed by long and
continued perseverance. Every shipping mine becomes a groat blessing,
giving work and employment to many,
encouraging overy kind of business,
and unlike moBt any other lines of trade
does uotmonopolize. Having travelled
ovor and inspected many of tho surrounding new mining districts tributary to Kaslo, I know that development
is all that is required to make paying
mines of many of thorn, the oro beiug
of remarkably high grade. The last
year has witnessed no now companies
being formed or chartered owing, I
think, to the big price for chartering
and registering. Little or no new
prospecting has boen done this summer, many of tho old location, running
out and boing re-located. The little
work which has been done shows up
this whole country as one of thc most
extensive mineral boltB of tho world.
1 have made no mention of the numerous surrounding camps which I havo
not visited but reports of reliable
source, say they are equal to any���
Toby crook, Meadow creek, Hall creek
and tho Bannockburn country. My intention was to do much more travelling
than what I have dono,but my inability
to get individuals to undertake (what
is only a companies work) to handle
tho properties, has showed ma tho
utter usolessuoss to struggle against
government requirements. Let the
post history be a, criterion to go by.
What did tlie world cay about some of
our most successful mining men and
companies ? Before they had made B
success, the prospector who believed
in his own prospect and tried to work
it was called a fool or .crazy. If these
extensive charges were removed there
would be companies taking hold of our
undeveloped properties, which, when
mnde Into mines would return to tho
government hundreds of dollars. It Is
claimed by many that n mino worth a
million will build taxable property to
the value of a million, taking It in that
light tho government will vastly increase its own revenue by it. liberal
policy in tho direction of modifying
its requirement! of development companies.

The following changes in the British
Columbia mining laws should bo carefully studied by those Interested in
mining In this Province:
First of these refers to tbe location
of fractions, in all fractions surveyed
from now on, whether staked corroctly
or not, the surveyor may adopt the
boundary lines of the surrounding
claims, provided no sido exceeds 1500
feet in length. Iu other words, the locator is eutitlod to tbe vacant ground
that he claims, even if he does not
slake ii ii. such a manner as to include
it all, whii n be seldom does.
By a recent decision of tho courts a
prospector lo.t a claim because of inability to seouro the post necessary to
mark the location. The amendment
provides that in cases where claims arc
staked above the timber line, or the
prospector can not secure the necessary posts, he may erect monuments of
earth or stono.
In staking an extension the posts are
often planted so as to form a wedge-
shape fraction botween two ends of tiie
two claims. These fractions have often Incurred great expense, not only In
recording and surveying, but in cases
where they carry the lend, and thus become of such value as to promote litigation. Tho amended act authorizes
the surveyor to include such fraction,
provided it does not cover more than
01.65 acree, the area of a full claim, I ,. .
and provided further that two location | Ra 1(1111(1 Jlotcl,
posts aro together.
By failure to record assessment work
within tlio required period of one year,
either through oversight or tho misunderstanding of partnership Interests,
valuable claims have boen lost. Now,
if a prospector fails to record the work
within a year, ho has 80 days' additional time in which to mako the record by
payment of an extra $10, provided that
the work is done within tho year.
Another change regarding tho assessment work IB in that particular
which called for work to tho amount of
$100 each year. Now, a miner can do
and record as many assessments as he
pleases in a year by paying tho recording feo for each assessment dono to the
extent of $100.
In case anybody should adverse un
application for a certificate 61 Improve1*
ment and crown grant, tho contestant
must have his claim surveyed immediately and file a plan mado andslgned
by an authorized provincial land surveyor with tho writ.
To obtain a crown grant in 18l)i> It
was necessary to do assessment work to
the amount of $500 and to havo tho
claim surveyed, which meant another
$100. Iii 1807 the act was amended SO
as to provide that up to May 1,1898,tho
cost of such survey should count as
work done on tho claim, not to exceed
$100. In plain English, It counted r.s
an assessment and as work toward tbe
crown graut. A survey generally costs
$100. The last legislature extends the
timo to May I, 1899.

tivo I Hon, Jon. Hum. on tliu Pan of Wine,
The following extracts from a speoch
made in 1854 in the House of Assembly
ol Nova Scotia by tho late IIou. Joseph
flowe, tbe great Reform statesman of
that Province, make interesting reading now.
He said: "The world has come down
to the present period, from tho most
remote antiquity, with tho wine cup in
its hand. David, tho man after Cod's
own heart, drank wine; Solomon, the
wisest of momirehs and of human beings, drank wine; Our Saviour not only
drank it but commanded Christians to
drink it, "in remembrance of Him."
In strong contrast with our Divine
Redeemer's life and practice, we hear
of the Scribes and Pharisees who
drauk it not���who revilod Our Saviour
as a "wine bibber," and the "companion of publicans and sinners," who
would have voted for tho Maine liquor
law as unanimously as they cried,
"Crucify Him."
"Tho Chinese made wine from rice
two thousand years before the birth of
Christ; and, although it must be allowed that they have ted enough, they
make and drink it yet. Wine was but
little known in England until tho Roman conquest. Wc are told that it
impairs our strength; yot tbe people
who drank it conquered those who did
not. ll was only sold by apothecaries
(as is now proposed again; in tho sixteenth century. In 1-127, Henry VI, a
sensible king, tried to restrain its adulteration, and we read, "that one
hundred and fifty butts and pipes were
condemned and emptied into the glitters of London, for being adulterated."
"The Stoics deniuU themselves the
use of wine, but their sect soou died
out. The Puritans tried tlie experiment of coercing people into temperance   and   virtue,   but   thny   signally

President McKinley is not nn optimist us to the continuance oi* peace and he
has insisted that the war department
shall keep fully 100,000 volunteers in the
service until the peace commissioners
have succeeded in drafting a satisfactory
treaty or have failed in this effort.
The president bus been importuned by
senators, congressmen and governors to
muster out particular regiments, but he
has put bis foot down and said that the
war department shall maintain sufficient
troops to be ready for any emergency,
even that of resuming hostilities, in the
event of failure to agree upon a settlement of the Philippine' question.
To an Ohio delegation that called at
the White house a few days ago to urge
thc muster out of another Ohio regiment
the president stated his position very
clearly. He told them he had little
confidence in the peace negotiations
wilh Spain except as tbey were backed
up by the determination of this government to enforce all its demands and be
ready to do this by resuming hostilities
ou short notice.
Vis Confidence ln Spain.
The president's experience in seeking
to settle tho .controversy with Spain
without resorting to war has not given
him nor his advisers much confidence in
Spain when diplomacy is the method of
reaching a settlement. Spain is a master of that kind of diplomacy which
means delay, and, while she sought
terms of peace when her lleets were destroyed and her army at .Santiago surrendered, she has done nothing us yet
to prepare for the consummation of her
There has been no' preparation made
for the evacuation of Cuba, and there
are indications that the Spanish commissioners in Cuba will attempt to drag
in many other questions besides the
plain and simple one of evacuation. The
American commissioners in Cuba have
lieen instructed to hold to this as the only question for settlement there and
leave all other questions to the peace
commissioners in Paris.
The president has the best of reasons
in the action of the cortes for doubting
his ability to secure a final peace without at least being ready to resume hostilities. He has therefore impressed upon
his importuiuite callers that he can not
muster out all of the volunteer army,
but must keep a sufficient number of
troops in readiness to enforce bis demands. He must be ready to throw a
large body of troops into Cuba again at
short notice and lie must he ready to
send re-ciiforcements to the Philippines
lo show Spain that he is just as determined now to have a prompt and definite acceptance, of his terms of peace as
be was when he went to war.

Philip D. Armour, Marshall Field and
Norman B. Beam have secured control of
the Baltimore & Ohio railroad. They
have made James J. Hill, president of
the Oreat Northern railroad, the dominating factor in the reorganization of
the system and have gained for Chicago
and the northwest what is practically
a trunk line from ocean to ocean, controlled by  Chicago capital.
Mr. Beam engineered the deal by
wliich his wealth, that of Mr. Hill and

controlling interest in the Baltimore &.

transcontinental affairs by the immense

the terminus of the Oreat Northern railroad in St. Paul and the terminus of the
Baltimore & Ohio in Chicago, it will lie

Mr. Benin will become a member of

will be the prime fnctor of the road.

That is to be the purpose of the ]ieace
commissioners. They are to say whether Spain shall release all or only a part of
the islands. But this question must
be settled apart from the Cuban question. The evacuation of Cuba will not
be allowed to have any bearing upon the
Philippines, though it is apparent that
the Spaniards are again trying to get
round to that old diplomatic position
of surrendering Cuba and retaining a
large purl  of the Philippines.
Moat lie Hradr to I'IkM.
The president hss told some of his congressional callers in the last few days
that with such a condition and with the
uncertainty of the Spanish character, he
is not justified in assuming that the war
is over and mustering out the volunteers. He has stated to some of these
cullers just what Oeneral Wheeler stated
in a public interview, tlmt the war is
not over, but is likely to be resumed in
n few months unless the Spanish politicians show a better disposition toward
permanent lienre by providing for the release of territory as agreed upon in the
terms of peace.
At least one of the peace commissioners shares this suspicion and doubts the
ability of the two commissions to agree
upon nny proposition concerning the
Philippines. Tho American commissioners will insist upon retaining at least the
island of Luzon, if not the whole group,
and tho Spanish commissioners will not
dore, in the present state of public
opinion in Spain, to agree to either of
these propositions. It is therefore feared that the negotiations of the peace
commissioners will be long drawn out
and finally come to naught unless the
president stands ready to break off the
negotiations and resume hostilities.
