The steamer Roanoke brings
news of the most disastrous storm
at Nome. It raged nearly two days
up to the evening of September
11th and was the severest that ever
existed in Western Alaska. A number of barges and lighters were
driven ashore and totally wrecked.
All along the shore for miles, both
east and west of Nome, the wind
and water created havoc with the
tents and mining machinery; a
number of lives are believed to
have been lost. It is known that
Andrew A. Ryan of Los Angeles,
was drowned. Several captains of
small tugs are missing and it is
thought they are lost. Fully 300
people are homeless and the loss to
property and supplies is over half
it million dollars. There is not an
alley leading to the beach that is
not filled with debris. Numerous
small buildings were swept completely away. The damage done to
buildings, tents, household effects
merchandise and other goods, and
chattels is seen everywhere along

the disappearance of over two thousand tons of coal. Captain French,

has been offered for thecautureand
conviction of the highwayman who
robbed single-handed, a train near
Spokane, last Friday evening.
The notice reads as follows: "$2,-

paid hy the N. P. R. company for
the arrest and evidence to convict
the robber who held up passenger
train No. 3, between Cocolalla and
Athol, on the night of September

the man: five feet four inches high,
about 28 years old, weight 135
pounds, slight build, small sandy
mustache, wore blue overalls and
jumper that had seen service, and
old shoes."
The robber boarded the train
and calmly went through three
coaches, scouring about $400 in
cash and a quantity of jewelry, as
the passengers contributed very
freely to the little bag he carried.
The robber made good his escape
and it is thought that he headed

It is a remarkable thing, that
with the anthracite coal business of
the country regulated by a trust;
which limits the output to a level
with demand in order to keep up
the prices, that some satisfactory
arrangement cannot be made regarding a wage scale, says an exchange. Coming as it does at the
approach of autumn, when the
season's.coutrscts for coal is usually made, it looks as though the
present strike might have been
stirred up by the mine owners
themselves,, with no other object in
view than to greatly limit the supply and run up. prices. Such
things have been done in the past,
and is looked upon now as one of
the main tricks, at all seasons of
the year, of the tariff-made trusts.

There are many inexplicable
things in the government regulations relative to the advertising of
legal matters. It seems to lie the
studied aim of these arrangements
to deprive the country weekly publications of all chance to benefit by
such advertising. The government
agents go over the country sticking
up type-written notices in post-
offices, but when it comes to the
Official Gazette, which not one in
a thousand of the inhabitants of
the province peruse from one year's
end to the other, it is never missed,
every business man in the country,
with tew exceptions, being required,
first or last, to pay tribute to it.
If be assigns his property to another in trust that all his creditors
may be [fairly treated, as in the
Quinlivan case here, a large chunk
of the assets must go to the Gazette, and ot course the creditors
must suffer the loss of the amount
that goes to fatten the government
Then, again, the law requires
that notices to creditors of such
assignments must be published in
a daily paper, which perhaps is located hundreds of miles distant,
and which none of the creditors
ever see. In the caw cited the notice was ssnt to the Rossland Miner,
there being no daily paper printed
in the Boundary. This method is
not only detrimental to the local
paper, but an improper notice to
local creditors.
There is no ground in justice or
reason for such proceedure.
The Spokesman-Review is installing a new printing machine that
weighs 40 tons, and will print a
28-page paper complete instantaneously, or 12,000 such papers per

the most cspable of all the printing
machines west of St. Paul or north
of San Francisco. Seventeen years
ago the Spokesman-Review was
started by Frank Dallam, and was
printed on a Washington hand
press, the cspacity of which was

of the legal fraternity, allowed her
no redress, as much as saying that
she was fortunate to escape with
any balance in her favor.

Such a proposal is absurd for
several reasons, the chief one being
that it is not the British government that would have to decide the
matter but the Canadian people.
British Columbia and the North
West Territories did at one time
belong to the British government,
but that government long ago conveyed the title to the Canadian
people, who are now the owners of
the territories in question, and with
whom the decision would rest in
such a matter. Scarcely any of
the politicians or journalists of the
United States understand the rela
tion which Canada bears to the
British Empire. The British
Empire consists of a community of nations of which
Canada is one. Most of the politicians of the United States look
upon Canada as a vassal state,
having no power to act in any mat'
ter without the consent of the imperial authorities. In this they
are to a great extent in error. The
people of Canada control their own
destiny almost as entirely as the
people of the United States control
theirs. They control their own des
tiny to a much greater extent than
the people of any state in the
Union, for they are at liberty to
secede from the rest of the British
Empire at any time they will to do
so, while the people of no state are
at liberty to secede from the Union,
If the people of any state were to
attempt to leave the Union they
wonld be compelled to desist from
their attempt by force of arms.
Their state would be laid waste and
thsir lives taksn for daring to make
such an attempt.
The people of Canada possess a
greater degree of liberty. If they
desired to leave the British Empire,
they would do so, and, although
the people of the British Islands
might not like their course, they
would place no bar in the way, as
Britons hold liberty in too high
reverence to attempt to force the
freeborn people of Canada to remain under the British flag against
their will. Their remaining under
that flag is entirsly at their own
option. This fact is respectfully
commended to the notice of those
politicians and journalists of the
United States, who, in their dense
ignorance, imagine it possible that
the Canadians may waken up some
morning to find that their country,
their chattels, and their bodies have
been sold without their knowledge
by the British government to the
United States.
The people of Canada do not
wish to leave the British Empire,
as they are very well satisfied with
their present condition. They have
almost absolute control over their
own destiny, and they do not want
to hand that control over to the
trusts and monopolists of the United States. They have some trusts
and monopolists among themselves,
but they are not yet wholly in sub-
possession of the Philippines would
be, with their half-savage, and, in
many cases, wholly savage, population, who have to be kept down by
force. The North West Territories
of Canada are destined to be the
granary of the British Islands and
the chief source from which they
will obtain their supply of oattle.
Without British Columbia they
would not have a direct route across
America within British territory to
China and Japan. The expansion
of commerce on the Pacific ocean,
which will take place during the
coming century, will be enormous,
and the people of the British Islands can avoid playing second fiddle to the United States only by
keeping the latter country from
getting possession of British Columbia, with its grand harbors.
Apart from sentiment altogether
the exchange of British Columbia
and the North West Territories for
the Philippines would be laughed
at as a business speculation by
British statesmen.

important changes were made in
the mineral act:
The act is amended by inserting
the following as section 8 thereof:
"8. Every person who mines for
any minerals for his own sole use
and benefit on any Crown lands in
the province of British Columbia
without having taken out and obtained a free miner's certificate,

summary way, forfeit and pay a
penalty not exceeding twenty-five
dollars, besides costs."
Another provision is made that

by section 24 of this act, the co-
owner or co-owners who have performed the labor or made the expenditure may, at the expiration of

She was stopping at the Club hotel,
and apparently in her right mind.
About 10 o'clock Saturday night,
she rushed to the street, crying,
"They are after me with axes, they
will kill met" She tried to hide in
Ball & Co.'s store, but was arrested
by the police. She was examined
by a physican who says her strange
actions are caused by heavy drinking.���Nelson Miner.

A Remarkable Clock.
Messrs. William Potts & Sons,
the well-known clock makers of
Leeds, England, have just constructed for that city what is claimed to be the greatest herological
achievement of the century. The
clock is a huge one, nnd in il are
combined many features of the
most remarkable clocks in the
world, such an those at Berne and
Strasburg Cathedral. The huge
clock dial, which in of polished
copper with the liiiures inscribed
upon it in blue, in flanked upon
either side by a mail-clad knight,
each holding above his bead a
battle axe which serve to strike the
gongs at tlie quarters and hours.
Above the clock, upon a kind of
perch, stands a large cockrel, In
front of the dials is a platform.
When the quarters of the hour ure
reached the mail-clad knights
strike the gongs. Immediately on
the left hand side of the dial a door
opens automatically, and there
issues forth a British soldier in full
uniform. When he reaches the
center of the platform he halts and
Balutes in precise military manner.
He then passes on tlie left, and is
followed by a kilted Highlander,
who performs a similar perform
ance when he reaches the center of
the platform. Then comes an
Irishman in the old dress of li%is
country, shillelali, then a Canadian
boatman with his paddle, and
finally a Hindoo, wearing his turban and loin cloth. When the
figures have passed round the platform they dissappear from sight
through another door, which closes
automatically upon the last figure's
exit. Then the cockbird overhead
flaps its wings, raises its head, and
gives three lusty crows. The figures are manufactured of copper
bronze while many of the other
parts of the clock are constructed
from gun metal. The escapement
is the double three-legged gravity
by Lord Grimthrope, who in -probably the greatest living authority
on clocks and bells.

Mr. John Goodnow, the United
States consul-general at Shanghai,
after enquiries in every posssible
source, learns that the number of
British and American missionaries
probably murdered during the uprising in China lias been 93, while
170 others, stationed in Chi Li and
Chan Si provinces,tire unaccounted
for, and there is reason for belief
that they have met the same fate.
Of those whose deaths have been
Absolutely proven. '22 were Americans, eight men, eight woman and
six children, and 34 British, nine
men, lo woman and 10 children.
There is Btrong proof that 37 more
were killed al I'ai Yuen. All the
natives from that place tell substantially the same story. Ten
men, thirteen women and seven
children are known to have been
there. The list of missing number:
Americans, 20 men, 21 women and
20 children; British, 41 men, 49
women and 19 children.
It is impossible to get the numbers of the Catholics killed, but
there were many French priests and
sisters, and some were in the
country where the Russians wer��)
fighting. There are also several
Sweedish and Danish Protestants.
The massacre and persecution of
the Chinese Christians continues
everywhere, and it is said the anti-
foreign leaders intend to exterminate them;	
The Cape Colonists rebels have
been sentenced to a 5-year disfranchisement.
