Many Killed or Wounded in Consequence of
the Awful Mistake.
The daily papers contained a
dispatch, dated Chefoo, August 9th,
signelhy Frederick Palmer, telling of a terrible mistake at the taking of Yang Tsung. The despatch
says the Russian artillery opened
fire on the American troops. Before
the mistake was discovered many
American soldiers had heen killed
or wounded hy the Russian shells.
Part of the casualties to the Four-
teentli Infantry was the result of
the Russian-lire. As the Chinese
fled (he regiment entered and occupied one of the Chinese positions.
A Russian battery some distance
off did not, notice the movement.
It opened fire on the position and
planted shells on the American
troops. The Russians were quickly
notified and ceased their fire. The
Americans captured the Chinese
works. Their casualties are estimated at 70 altogether. Most of these
are iu the Fourteenth Infantry.
The long march nnd the heat
played havoc with the troops, continued the correspondent. Forty
per cent of the Ninth regiment
were completely exhausted as a result of the march and the fight
that followed.
The troops will rest at Yang
Tsun for two or three days. Then
it is to he a rush forward to Pekin.
The Chinese are demoralized by
their defeats, and no reBt or chance
to recover fioni their denioraliza
tion is to le given them hy the allied troops.
It will be remembered that J. S.
Hubbard bought a fine span of
draft horsts from John Earle which
were at the time noble specimens
of equine proportions and strength.
Shortly after the purchase one of
the animals suddenly took sick
and died. The other Mr. Hubbard
sold to J. A. Bertois before he left
Cascade for Republic. A few days
since it, too, took suddenly sick,
and tn put it out of its misery, was
shot Wednesday morning in the
B. C. stables. For the past few
months the big horse had been
worked at the rock cut.
The latest, wildest and baseless
rumor sent out by the Grand Forks
boom correspondent is to the effect
that the B. C. mines of Summit
camp has purchased the Cascade
Water Power improvements. Last
week he had the B. C. mine sold to
the C. P. R. When he tears his
literary hair and writhes under the
weight of an abnormally developed
mentality, he can spear any sort of

That Will Simplify And Revolutionize Telegraphy.
Telegraphy hy the use of typewriters in place of the ordinary
clicking keys and receivers familiar
in telegraph offices has been made
possible by two Chicago men, Zal-
mon G. Sholes and Alfred C. Gil-
They have devised a mechanism
by which a message written with
ordinary spelling on a machine that
bus a keyboard exactly like the
keyboard of the ordinary typewriter, will be printed if transmitted over a telegraph wire by annther
typewriter in the office to which it
is sent, hundreds or thousands of
miles away.
The problem that they have solved
is one that has long furrowed the
brow of electricians, and the result
of their invention can hardly be
less than a revolution in the telegraph business. By it the skilled
telegraph operator is no longer
necessary. Any man, woman or
child, for that matter, who can
operate a typewriter accurately is
enabled to send a telegram, although he or she has absolutely no
knowledge of electricity.
The land slides on the C. P. R.
from the bridge going east to Fife
are proving quite troublesome to
the railway authorities. It has
been found necessary in some places
to not only remove many yards of
embnnktient from the upper side
of the tracks, but to move the
tracks out from the banks. A large
force has been scattered over this
portion of the road the past week

ensure safety to travelers, and enable trainmen to make schedule

Collls P. Huntington Will No  Longer  Make
and Unmake Legislatures and Courts.
The news of Collis P. Huntington's death, Tuesday, created a sensation in railway circles, and especially in San Francisco, where
his movements both in business and
in private life have been watched
and studied with keen interest. Although Mr. Huntington spent mo��t
of his time in the east, he main
tained a residence in San Francisco, and there spent two or three
months each year. H. E. Huntington left Houston, Texas, Monday
night for San Francisco, but was
informed of the death of his Uncle,
and proceeded east at once. He
was Mr. Huntington's personal
representative and it is thought
that he will succeed to the management of his Uncle's vast possessions.
The deceased was either president or director in nineteen powerful railway and other corporations,
and at the time of his death was
reputed to be worth nearly $40,000,-
000. He was 79 years of age, and
it is said he expected, to live fifteen
or twenty years longer.
The boyhood of Collis P. Huntington was spent in Harwinton,
Litchfield county, Connecticut,
where he was horn October 22,
1821, in an old-fashioned, dilapidated house in the '"Poverty Hill"
district. His mother was a hardworking Christian woman, but the
f:ithcr was a man in whose makeup ambition had no part. He was
a tinker and traveled about the
country mending umbrellas, sharpening razors, etc. The income of
the elder Huntington was far to
meager to supply Ihe wants of his
large family, and when Collis was
10 years old his parents separated.
Mrs. Huntington going to make her
home with friends, and the children
beine placed with different families.
Collis made his home with the family of Orza Barbier.
Mrs. Barbier was an unusually
intelligent woman, and to her
training, as Mr. Huntington in the
days of his success always admitted, was due the fire of ambition
which was early kindled in his
Fifteen years ago he returned to
his native town and erected a memorial to his mother, Elizabeth
Huntington, which will serve to
perpetuate his name and his successes in Harwinton, The memorial
was in the form of a massive granite chapel, erected at a cost of $50,-
000. When completed, it was presented to the Congregational church
of Harwinton, of which Mrs. Huntington was a member.

Qerman Papers   Comment   on   the   Possibility.
The possibility of a clashing of
international interests in China is
stiH generally discussed. The Berliner Post's reference to the landing
of the British at Shanghai and to-
Russia's action at Nithwan, particularly to the latter, have caused
some apprehension among the
powers, especially in Japan.
"It would not be strange," says
the Post, "if other powers did likewise, and it would cause a serious
complication of the situation if not
only Great Britain but others took
occasion from Russia's action to
adopt steps of far-reaching importance for the future."

The Report of the Medical Superintendent of the Provincial Asylum for the Insane at New Westminster is at hand. As a concise,
exhaustive and humane statement
of the painful circumstances which
surround the existence of such institutions it reflects the utmost credit
on its compiler, the medical superintendent, Mr. G. F. Bodington.
To him also is due no small
amount of consideration for the
way in which he has dealt with the
political economy of the subject.
Year after year has he drawn the
attention of the government to the
over-crowding of the wards and the
hardships thrown on the Province
by neglect of the patients by their
relatives and friends, the result being, a coi'siderablestaudingexpense
to the country, a menace to the
adequate working if the asylum
and a drawback to the comfort and
prospecls of those patients who, for
various reasons, have no hope for
outside attention or reasonable
chance of cure.
ance incurs disease, and folly
brings in hardships. In fact, the
whole system is perfectly automatic and the "punishment fits the
crime" with a perfection that indicates divine origin, and saves
trouble to the recording angels;
and when, in the natural process,
the mind is called upon to bear a
greater strain than its failings have
deputed should be its exact due insanity supervenes and the solace of
a Btrange somnolence spreads its
shadow over all.
Attention has already heen directed hy the editor of this paper
to the startling facts connected
with the number and length of stay
of the Chinese patients at the New
Westminster asylum. The proportion in numbers is utterly abnormal, being over ten pe* cent of
the average male population of the
institution. The length of stay of
three of these averages almost
twenty-five years each, whilst if we
consider, fourteen of (hem we find
their average is over thirteen years
of useleSf ex] ense and drain upon
the resources of the Province of
British Columbia. The remedy
appears, judging from results, difficult for the authorities to discover
and yet to the average lay mind
the natural solution seems to be to
ship the whole batch hack to China
where they would possibly be
welcomed by the Boxers with open
arms and so received into a community ten degrees madder than
themselves.   So mote it be.
It is not in my desire and indeed
it would ill become anyone to deal
lightly with the most terrible disaster the human being is capable
of suffering���dethronement of the
reason, but it is unquestionable
that the , vagaries of mind of
the mentally afflicted do occasionally give rise to exquisitely
comical situations. It seems to me
at times that if there be a hell it
must be centered in the human
mind, that one's follies, extravagances and crimes all find their
origin and their punishment therein.
Crime begets remorse, intemper-
I do not pretend to know what
process of events brought about the
following mentioned result but I do
contend from my knowledge of the
patient that it is perhaps as well
that she should never regain sufficient reason to appreciate lucidly
the exact value and effect of her
surprising antics. Staying at a
Belgian hotel a few years ago, I
had noticed a fellow-resident, a
quiet, staid, maiden lady of about
35, prim and precise almost to
u fault. One evening of an early
spring and a late carnival, just
prior to the last day of the festivities, a small community had gathered in the drawing room discussing or endeavoring to disguise their
masquerades for the following day.
"And what will you wear?" asked
one of the younger  ladies of  Miss
F .    "I,"  she answered   with
emphatic deliberation, "shall appear as Lady Godiva." Everyone
started and then with continental
ease bur. t into roars of laughter,
and it was generally conceded that
Miss F had achieved  the joke
of the season.
outpace the understandings of those
presumed to be sane.
Years ago in visiting the Lancaster County Asylum, then the
abode of some fifteen hundred
patients I was suddenly confronted
by an energetic being who informed me in one long drawn sentence
that he was "The Lord Jesus Christ,
Twice King of Heaven and Earth,
head carder at Thompson's mill,
maker of the human race, flat fish
and polonies and inventor of the
"And this," he added, pointing
to an A B C Worked on canvas in
pink wool "is the original copy."
I was somewhat perplexed at meeting the gentleman, and taken aback
replied, "Then I suppose you are
his majesty the Emperor of Germany." "Young man," he retorted, "it ill becomes a feeble mortal
to scoff thu'sly in the presence of
the Most High, go thy way in peace
and repentance." I expect there'll
he a terrible row when that man
confronts Peter.
I noticed the twitching of her
hands and some peculiarity as to
the pupils and irides hut I do not
profess to understand old maids
any way.
Next day she kept her promise
and Brussels realized a sensation
that Cleo de Merode hardly surpassed in her fish-net frock feat at
the Bal de l'Opera. In short the
discreet and irreprochable Miss
F suddenly made her appearance on The Avenue Louise���that
magnificent thoroughfare, the pride
of Brussels and one of the fashionable resorts of Europe���on a stylish
sixteen-hand horse, her hair flying
loose in the crisp spring
breeze and otherwise au naturel.
She was eventually run in by a
most reluctant gendarme who spoke
small English but sarcastically remarked that "bear skin did not
suit her style of beauty at all at
Indeed the vagaries < f mind of
those mentally afflicted infinitely
The hospital ward of the above
asylum is furnished with a number
of low, heavy, well-rounded, hardwood beds, at the time of which I
write it fortunately contained some
half-dozen patients only. Five
were seriously ill and the sixth,
who had cut himself in a most terrible way, owing to jumping
through a window the day before,
was strapped down in bed and his
arms fastened to the side.
During the temporary absence of
a warder who according to regulations, should on no account have
left the room, the wounded lunatic
struggled out of bed, and bleeding
in half a dozen places, but singing
hymns and serenely happy, gathered up his fellow patients, cots, bedding and all and stacked them up
carefully one on top of another in
the corner of the room. I forget
whether it was two or three funerals
that ensued.
I remember, too, the first time 1
visited that asylum, being caused
a considerable amount of uneasiness
by some remarks of one of the
female patients. "What are you
here for?" she asked, "Well���I���
I'm only just on a visit, came to
see the place in fact." "Urn," she
remarked with a knowing wink,
"that's what / thought when I
came, wait till you try to get out,
that's all.
And such was the effect of her
words and my surroundings that I
actually did feel somewhat in
jeopardy until the gate.- had closed
once more on the right side of me.
Another incident I recall took
place at a dance one visitors' night
at the Yarra Bend asylum near
I was sitting it out with a particularly bright young lady who at
first sight certainly gave little outward sign of her malady and made
me wonder whether, like myself,
she was a mere guest or not.
Under such circumstances it is as
well to he guarded in one's utterances. However, she broached the
subject herself. "You see," she
said "I am not really mad, I merely have an objection to closing
doors, my people don't like it, so
they put me here. I could go out
now if I would get up and close
that door. But I wouldn't, no, not
for the Queen of England. It's
servant's work and I won't do it."
"One of the worst caoes we have,"'
commented the doctor a little later,.
"has homicidal tendencies and requires ceaseless watching."
Poor girl! And there are scores
of people in high circles who have
just as much faith in the "Open
Door" as she had and no one suspects them of lunacy.
But reverting from the actions ot
the insane to the realms of reason
one takes some pleasure in hearing
that Grand Forks and Columbia
are apparently in earnest concerning the arrangement for amalgamation. The old system had little
to recommend it, in as much as if
persistent endeavors on the part of
Columbia to prove that the Forkers
were all knaves and hy the Forks
to show that the Columbians were
anything but doves, were continued
���well, by and bye, folks would
have believed both parties, and all
come to live at Cascade.   Besides
"There once were two cats of Kilkenny.
Each thought there was one cat too many,
So they quarrelled aud spit
And the scratched and they bit,
Till excepting their nulls
And the tips ot their tails,
Instead of two oats there weren't any."
Therefore it is well that the two-
should join hands and bury the
hatchet, bury it deep too���in the
skull and tentacles of their and our
common enemy, the C. P. R.
Personally I have the utmost
respect for both towns. Grand
Forks is one of the very few cities
in B. C. that has beaten the C. P.
R. off its own bat, whilst as for
Columbia, well anybody who
could sell Chris. Foley a town lot
in a frog swamp isn't short of savez
to say the least.
Here in Cascade, money being
the root of all evil, we are secure
and virtuous in the halo of our
poverty. For is it not said that
"the goodness of gold is tried by
fire, the goodness of women by gold
and the goodness of men by the
ordeal of women?" I dont look
upon ladies as much of an ordeal
myself, but as time checks and a
few stray ragged edged dollar hills
constitute the whole of our financial
currency it is little wonder that the
virtue of this community is solid
enough to run drilling contests on.

The anti-Martin government
pets from China are becoming
mote numerous every day in Cascade.
Voters should not forget that it
was the anti-Martin element that
turned the salmon fisheries on the
Fraser river over to the little brown
Jap. And they should remember,
too, that the newspapers which opposed Martin are defending the
government, and the Japs, too.
Germany is the first power to
kick against the movements of any
portion of the allied forces, and
proposes to send a strong army to
protect its commercial interests in
the Yangtze valley, principally at
Shanghai and Hankow, against |
fancied designs on the part of Great
Martin. Had a sufficient number
of his supporters been elected, it
would have been otherwise. New
railway enterprises would have
been encouraged, and steps taken
that would Have opened the eyes of
the Ottawa authorities to the enormity of the Japanese evil.
The Republic Pioneer gave an account in its issue of last week of a
meeting held in that city at the
instance of John Manly and othere
of Grand Forks in the interests of
a railway proposition to connect
the two places. Mr. Manly tells
the Republic people that if the
C. P. R. government at Victoria
refuses to grant the charter applied
for, the city of Grand Forks will
extend its city limits to the line at
Carson and grant a charter itself.
It seems a pity that such means
must be resorted to in order to
secure a privilege which the government can find no other excuse
for refusing to allow than that the
granting of such a charter might
ultimately lead to competition with
a Canadian railway holding a full
and "free hand" against the people.
"For commercial reasons" the
Imperial government is opposed to
uny action in the interest of the
working classes of Canada that will
in the least affect the friendly relations existing between our country
and'Japan, so the British Columbia white citizen must submit to
being trampled underfoot by the
Chinese and Japanese rable.
The most ludicrous Tom Fool
dispatch that has been sent afloat
since that relating to the Japanese
government prohibiting its people
from immigrating to Canada and
the United States, is the more
recent one that Kruger is a heavy
contributor to the democratic campaign fund in the present presidential contest across the line.
What is a Liberal-Conservative ?
Is he a mongrel, mule, mugwump
or an angleworm ? He must be
something like those ultra-Conservatives who want high tariff to
protect this country agaitiBt the
importation of the products of
cheap labor, but insist on the free
immigration of the cheap laborers.
He would help the capitalist lower
wages and raise the price of his
products and supplant white laborers with almond-eyed heathens.
Only this and nothing less.
The present government at Victoria, headed by a millionaire
coal mine owner, is a pro-Chinese-
Japanese-C. P. R. government.
The labor vole should take note of
this fact, especially that portion of
it   which   opposed   Hon. Joseph
The coast Liberal papers,in their
attempt to defend the Ottawa government, are making some very
humiliating confessions. They say,
"what good could be accomplished
by a change ? The Conservatives
were controlled by the C. P. R.
when they were in power, and it
would be so again. And what
better off would the people be than
now., with the same influences controlling the present government ?"
This is taking the ground that
the Dominion is absolutely and
irrevocably the prisoner and slave
of that corporation and that there
is no escape from it. Can it be
so? And if so, is there no relief
from such a condition? If not, we
should cease boasting of our prowess
in war, intelligence in peace, and
our fitness for the leadership of the
nations of the earth. So long as
the Dominion remains the willing
slave of a single railway corporation, its voters must necessarily be
either imbeciles or knaves, or

Mr. James J. Hill, president of
the Great Northern railway, was in
"Spokane Friday week and in an
interview stated among other things
that the Spokane Falls and Northern railway was in a bad shape.
Indeed, this is so much the case
that the road will have to be practically rebuilt. In order to put it
in good shape a large Him will
have to be spent in betterments.
The work of rebuilding the road
will commence immediately, he
said. Mr. Hill also stated that the
passenger rate on the Spokane
Falls and Northern railwav could
not be reduced for the reason that
the business would   not justify  it,
He stated that a daily passenger
train service is to be established
from Spokane over the new Kootenay Valley railroad. There will
be a passenger train each way every
day. The train will run over the
main line to Bonner's Ferry and
thence over the Valley road to the
foot of Kootenay lake and connect
with the lake steamers.
In speaking of the proposed
branch of the Great Northern to Republic, Mr. Hill said: "The Great
Northern wishes to build that line
as directly as possible from Spokane. That is the naturel way.
We now have surveyors at work
seeking a route from the Spokane
Falls and Northern and hope that
one can be found. Understand
this proposition: The bulk of ores
in that camp are low grade. They
must have a low transportation
rate to move them. Railroads
which have heavy grades cannot
iiriake low rates.   This is the situ
ation exactly. It will accomplish
nothing to build a line to Republic
the operation of which will require
such high freight tariffs as to prevent shipments. We have to get
an easy grade into the camp and
that we will have if the engineers
can find it, and I think they can.
When will we build? Well, we
will have to find the route first.
No. The San Poil route is not considered. Too much grade. It
wouldn't pav u* to haul over suoh
a grade at prices which would justify the mines in shipping. It
would be nice for passengers to ride
through the reserve in our cars,
but the passenger business at 10
cents a mile would not pay us. I
am pretty hopeful that the engineers will find what they are seeking, an easy grade in from the Spokane Falls and Northern. They
are working on a new route, and I
rather expect they will be successful. When we learn of the route I
can talk definitely about construction."

To Postmaster Cameron   Detailing  Some of
His Experiences.
Standerton, Transvaal,
Juno 2r>, 11)00.
Mr. Angus Cameron���Dear friend:
I write  you to   let   you   know how
we have been getting along.   When
we left. Durban,  we went by train
to Tugela, on  the  border of Zulu-
land, and joined the rest of Strath-
conn Horse; then we all matched
two dayp to Eshowe,  the capital of
Zululand,  and we  went through a
most beautiful country;   but there
-are no white eeUleris of any account,
but at Eshowe the British have  a
garrison, aud it is a most beautiful
place; only a few whites;  the town
���is not large; about 150 whiles outside of the  soldiers.   The Gloucester regiments that were besieged in
Ladysmith  were   there recruiting
up strength and resting, and they
are a fine body of men;   we stayed
there two days, and we were under
orders  to   proceed   200  miles  up
country, but we were re-called back
to Durban, and  we made Durban
in three days'  inarch,  125  miles.
A  lot of the horses   played  out,
then we  entrained  for  Newcastle.
We went through all the places we
used  to  read  about  when   Buller
was trying to get into Ladysmith,
nnd  it was a frightful  country to
fight in.   If the British army held
the positions the Boars did, there
is not an  army in the world could
enter Ladysmith.   The country is
terrible to take an  army through;
the hills are from two to five hundred feet high, one after the other,
and level land at the top and bottom.   The Boars  have blown up
all the Lridges  and  culverts,  and
destroyed   the   water   tanks  and
���every place is looted and destroyed.
I saw my   brother  at a  station 11
miles below  Newcastle, at a place
they call   Murry's camp.   The De
vons that were in   Ladysmith were
there.   My brother had two bullets
through him,  one in  the forearm
and one in  the thigh;   he received
them on January  6th, the day the
Boars tried to take Ladysmith;  he
is ready for duty again, but he
eays he has had enough of it. They
are just  guarding  the  railroad at
that point.   He heard from home
that  I  waB  with  the Strathcona
Horse, so he  was  on  the lookout
when we pulled  in.   We stopped
about two hours, so I had not much
time with him;   he said he did not
feel any pain now with his wounds,
and  he would  like to get home.
That day, January 6, there were 48
killed, 107 wounded  in  his regiment. Thev had to drive the Boars
out of their  trenches   twice at the
point of  the bayonet.   The  next
morning they found 64 dead Boars
in  and around  the trenches  they
were  defending, so  it  must have
been a pretty hot fight. We stopped
one day at Newcastle and were inspected  by General   Murry,   and
marched for   two   days   through
er. ���� o it i c I
^^^^^^^^ lirijiaile, and
General Clary's brigade is with ns;
we matched with a 25 mile frontage for three days, and took Standerton in the Transvaal on tbe 23d.
The Boars evacuated it; they are
not making a stand now. The
country is level and they have no
show, we are slaying a few days at
Staiidertoi), and there are 32.000
troops here, and they are skirmishing every day around the camp,
and bringing in some Boers all the
time, and some are giving up their
There are quite a number of our
boys sick in tbe hospital; due to the
want of warm clothing. The nights
are very damp ami cold, often being frosty, with one to two inches of
ice. The country here is level and
find grazing land. The boys would
be ready to go hack at any time as
they are getting tired of looking
for scrap; the Boars won't stand
and the only way is to surround
them. There has been another fellow died in Cape Town since we
left by the name of Banks. Remember me to citizens of Cascade and
tell Charlie Thomas ' I am liable to
be there for his Christmas dinner
next Christmas, as I think the war
will not last long now. The Boars
have looted every place they were
in, in Natai. The British army will
not allow any looting or destroying
any property in the Transvaal.
They are using them too good for
their own good. This is all the
news I have to send at present. We
cannot get any stamps here as they
say letters will go free. If I can get
any Transvaal stamps I will send
you some, some time.
Yours truly,   Geo. McKugo.
