An EnfoyabU Event.
Last evening saw the good steamer
Clifford Si fton in gay attire. The most
largely attended dance of the season
was that of last night, for the inde
fatigafife hostesses, Mesdames Barry
and Engelhardt, had extended their
kind Invitations to nearly all Bennett,
and nearly everybody was represented
there. The highest credit is due to
these ladies for the excellent way in
which everything was managed, and
for the pains taken to ensure warmth
and comfort to all the guests. It was
no light matter to transform a steamboat, which has been laid up for weeks,
into a palatial ballroom, but this stu*
pendous task ^proved no obstacle to these
estimable ladies, for it was successfully
accomplished. The long saloon of the
beat furnished ample room for all the
dancers, while the entrance lobby (or
waiting room) was patronized by the
lovers of the fragrant wood, and ample
accommodations by side tables was provided for those inclined to card playing. The dancing programme was a
long one, and nicely arranged, beginning with a grand march, ledV by Mr.
and Mrs. Roberts. The cake walk was
the most enjoyable event of the evening.
The first figures of the "walk" were
danced very^nicely by Mrs. Engelhardt
• and Mr. Phelps (tils), followed by the
evening's premiers, Messrs. D. Von
Cramer and A. Engelhardt, who appeared costumed as a couple of "dead
swell coons." Their efforts were loudly
applauded. The refreshments offered
by the fair hostesses were bounteous
and graciously served. The lotion department was in capable hands. The
celebrated Jenner-Oartmel orchestra
(unabridged), on a raised platform, gave
general satisfaction, and altogether
everyone most thoroughly entered into
the spirit of enjoyment, and left regret-
ing tne close of such a pleasing event
in the history of Bennett.
Brother Barry is to be complimented'!
: pn his zealousness in escorting the'
ladies to the dance. He first of all gave
his arm to one lady, and leaving her on
•board, said he must go in search for
Wore; and when he again reached the
boat it was in company of six ladies,
thus bringing upon himself the well-
earned title of "the beau."
Thermometer at 2 p. m. to day stood at
20 degrees above zero showing only 12
degrees frost.
Report of a great British victory by
Gen. Buller has come over the wires.
Severe fighting is said to have taken
place at Tugela river, resulting in
losses: 900 British; 3,000 Boers. Report
also states that two British regiments
in mistake fired on each other, with
losses in both regiments, and the mistake was not discovered until actual
bayoneting commenced. Explanations
will undoubtedly follow, but possibly
thick brush was the Cause of disaster.
Mail Carrier Humphries has been
laid up with a severe cold the greater
part of this week. He is now about
again and is waiting mail from Skagway, when he will at once set out with
the Dawson portion.

Eloquent Divine in Bennett
The Rev. Mr. Pringle left Atlin with a
sled and three dogs Monday morning of
last week and reached Bennett Wednesday morning—having accomplished the
journey in two days. The next morning
(Thursday) he started with his dogs for
Tagish to visit his brother, Sergeant
Pringle, of the N. W. M. P. The reverend gentleman expected to be back in
Bennett by Monday or Tuesday of this
week, but the severe snowstorm delated
his starting. He arrived in this city about
I o'clock on Thursday, having left Caribou eailyon Wednesday morning. He
was in company with M. J. Heney's two
teams which went through the ice. He
tried to make Bennett Wednesday night,
but the storm was too severe and the trail
very bad, so he and others who were with
him built a fire, and spent the night, without blankets. When they reached the
engineers' camp, three miles from Bennett, they had been 24 hours withoufc-food.
Mr. Pringle will remain in town over
Sunday and will preach at both morning
and evening services.

Social Ball
Mr. James Hume, of the Dawson
hotel, gave a social ball on Thers'day
evening in honor of Mi. Henry McCauley
of Dawson, who reached Bennett last
Monday, only .nine days from the Klondike metropolis. Quite a crowd was in
attendance, and a most enjoyal le evening was spent. The delightful measures of music was furnished by the
consolidated Jenner- Carl rael orchestral?.
Dainty refreshments were served.

Mr. Jacob, Kline, formerly of Seattle,
but now a t evident of Dawson, lias been
spending the Week in Bennett much
against his will He arrived from
Dawson last Monday, and is on his way
to the Sound country to visit his wife
and babies. Mr. Kline is in the mercantile business, but en the "out" trip he
is acting as correspondent of the Dawson
Daily News. He informed The Sun
that on the way out he gleaned all the
information he could in regard to the
mysterious disappearance of Fred- H.
Claysonof Skagway, Len Relfe of Seattle, and —- Olsob, a telegraph line re-
pairerfor the Dominion Telegarph line,
and says he has no doubts but that they
were murdered for their money.
Was Informed
Two men walked into one of Bennett's
big stores last Monday during ihe heavy
snowstorm, and one said to the proprietor:
"Wid you please Inform us where the
steamer Gleaner is lied up?"
"Just across the bay there," was the
reply, pointing toward the vessel;   'but,"
he added, most urbanely, looking over
his eyeglasses, "1 dony't thinlw she'll get'
away today." r'.

Ou Thursday a telegram was received
from Skagway staling that Rev. Sinclair
had been ill, but was now better, arid
hoping that Mr. Pringle might be able to
take the Sunday service; iu Bennett.
On Wednesday the telegraph wire was
down between Bennett and Skagway for
a short time. On Thursday the line l.e-
tween Bennett and Caribou was for a little
while out of order.

A great deal is being said at present
about the likeness in spirit and action
between the miner and' the gambler.
So closely do some claim to trace this
resemblance that they cannot draw the
line between the man who wins at black
jack or roulette and the prospector who,
with pick and shovel, digs gold from
the Oarth. .
again the time-worn expression: **iyiin-
fog i an^gai^i^^r>nlyIfi rjajue,
their' inherehtr pMflc'iplts a*et «$« the
same order.',' Accepting this as a self-
evident truth, the thoughtless adopt it
as a rule of action and gamble away
their money and thtejr wif s. This alone
is about all .the injury the ill used words
can'do. Sfntelligtmt miners will continue to prospect new districts and
gamblers will woo the god of chance at
the roulette or black jack table without
ever finding a eonvergence or meeting
of their respective lines. There is
nothing congenerous nor in common
between them. The line of demarcation is so distinct that all may find it.

Our population was considerably
stirred up on Thursday morning over
the report thai! a man in the employ of
Chalmers McKay, the meat man, had
been frozen to death the night previous.
One report had it that the frozen man
had been found, and another that a relief
party had gone in search of the missing man. Happily, all proved false'
us the man came to town about 1:30 on
Thuifday afternoon in good shape, notwithstanding the fact he was exposed
all night. ,
A nan named Rjan, an employee of
- the railway, had bis hands badly frozen
on Monday night near Frazier station/
As'it was impossible to remove the in-

Mr. L. Craden, of Craden & Wilcox,
has in his possession a specimenof quartz
which, he avers, was taken from a ledge
in place at a point t-ot reniStirliwm.Dawson, that is calculated 'o aro.use emotions
pf cupidity in the hearts pf the most indifferent and phlegmatic. It is studded
with native gold in particles as large and
larger than  a grain of wheat, and  and

would conclude that the weight of gold
relative to ihe whole is sufficient to fix its
valuta at not less than $5 0,000 per ton.
It won'd not takt a very large vein of
this character to establish the reputation
of this district as one rich iu quartz.
In the light of what we see and hear
concerning the gold bearing quarts, formations, hi this vi;unity, it is certainly not at
all reckless to -predict a great future for
the district as a quartz-mining field.-—

Victimized by Forger ;
VAncouviiU,B. C, Jani4.--Local store-
I eepers have littn victimized i\i whole-
sale st lc by a clever and succe sful forger
who has worked this city pretty thoroughly. All ofthe fdi^eries were checks
drawn upajtal&e BanMBf British Coluuibia,
with what prasuineu to he tlie firm signature of Morrison & Armstrong Each
check was drawn in favor of George
Voldmar, who represented himself its a
workman in the employ of the firm. The
firm name was placed on the check with
a rubber stamp, having also the signature
klow,  'W. H. Armstrong, manager."
The amount ofthe check, which was
invariably $10, was punched through the
paper, and the check had every appearance of genuineness. The forger's simple
method was to make a small purchase,
tender the check and receive about $9 in
change. The scheme worked like a charm
and it was only when the bank refused
payment that the guileless merchants
suspected anything wrong. The forger
has not been arrested, although the police
have his description

Speculating About a Throne
Though Queen Victoria heads a very
large family order, and has descendant*
of impetial as well as royal.ranks, it is
interesting to note that, next to the Duke
of York's two sons and deughter, the
Duchess of Fife's two daughters count
beforeall otherrin nearness to the crown.
It is a far look aliead, but in 203 years, if
the York line fails, as did the senior
Bour on line of France, to the principal
representative* of the bouse of Duff will
then fall the kingship, or the queeuship
of England, or the name of it.
The Ladies Duff are, consequently,
being carefully trained in the way they
should go, though the chance is mighty
slim of sturdy Prince Edward, or hia
equally sturdy little brother Albert ever
giving his cousins a living show in the
throne business. Yet dynasties have
suQdenly petered out before now.—Boston Herald. .
Mr. Jack -Allen has consented to leadr
the negative in the debate on Tuesday
evening next.
