pa tehee. When brokers delivered
stock purchased on account of the
London and Globe and linked for
paymentjtliey received checks which
were dishonored. This was followed by the failure on the stock exchange of twelve other firms. The
London and Globe is heavily involved in the British Columbia
and West Australia markets. All
the shares nn the London and Globe
group toppled, especially Lake View
mid Le Roi No. 2. The shares of
the latter the day before were quoted al 22 and after the failue was announced were unsalable at 4.
Lord Duffrrin is chairman of the
London and Globe and his fellow-
directors are: Whittacker-Wright,
who is well known in many other
companies; Lieutenant-General, the
Hon. Somerset J. Gougb-Calthorpe,
who has been Colonel-in-Uuief of
the Fifth Dragoon Guards since
1892, and Lord Polham-Clinton,
Master of the Queen's Household,
and a son of the former Duke of
Newcastle. The failure of the concern of which Marquis of Dufferin
and Ava, the former Governor-
General of Canada, and the British
Ambassador at, Pirris, is ihe bead,
adds one more sorrow to 1 he closing chapter of his life, for he is today preparing to start for South
Africa in company with Lady
Dufferin, in consequence of the
serious condition of his son, Lord
Fredrick Blackwood, the Lieutenant in the Ninth Lancers who was
wounded Monday at Glenfontein.
It is scarcely 11 year since Lord
Dufferin Inst his eldest son, the
Earl of Ava who died at Ladysmith. He is now encompassed by
family grief and his honored name
is dragged in the financial mire.

Inspector Clute of the customs
department paid a visit to the
Greenwood office a couple of weeks
ago, and as a result of that visit he
wired the depart at Ottawa for an
assistant to Mr. McCutcheon, as the
customs business done here is too
great for one man to attend to, says
the Greenwood Miner. On Monday
last W. S. Keith received a telegram
from W. A. Galliher, stating that
he had received the appointment.
The new member for Yale-Cariboo
has started off in the right direction. Mr. Keith was the choice of
the local Liberal association for the
position, and Mr. Galliher acted on
this recommendation. This is an
indication that Mr. Galliher intends to consult his constituents in
all matters affecting them. If be

Senator Hanna's great anxiety
in the late U. S. election was apparently inspired by self interest.
He intends to go into the shipbuilding business, and he desired
I in this as in all of his other enterprises, to compel the people to contribute to its success. So he is trying
to force congress to vote a subsidy
in his favor. But Senator Petti:
grew is "onto" him. In an inter-

20th, Mr. Samuel Vinson, aided hy
others, might have been seen in the
moon's pale light rapidly running
lines and driving stakes just across
the international line near the place
known as Russell. Investigation
discloses the fact that he was relocating some placer claims, the rights
of former claimants having expired
at 12 o'clock M., December 81st,
1900. These claims include the
Russell townsite. Mr. Vinson informs The Record that he located
480 acres, or 24 20-acere placer
claims, in his own and 23 other

The Body ol Harry   Lowery   Found   la  a
swasip Near Republic.
The remains of Harry Lowery
were found Thursday ahout noon
some four miles mirth of the Tom
Thumb mine, says the Republic
Pioneer. The circumstances of the
case are as follows:
On Thursday Joe Crane a Imy
about 15, and J. P. Nicola, were cut
hunting, and in their search for
game they had gone into a swiiui)i
that had heen burned over during
a forest lire, At a particular moment, while iu search for a certain
section post, they heard the loud
harking and howling of a dog.
Young Crane and his companion
followed in the direction from
whence the sound came, which led
them into considerable timber.
The dog kept up his moaning and
barking, and finally be was locat
found. His calls for help, for such
they were, attracted-the attention
of the hunters.
The deceased was ahout 40 years
of age and leaven a widow, who
conducts the Columbia house on
Keller street. Lowery wan a sporting man, and well known in Montana mid other sections.
A telegram from Dr. Horace
Lowrey, at -Grit nil Junction, Iowa,
a brother of tbe deceased, has been
received, announcing he would start
for Republic at once. He will arrive early in the week.
Is there a living man who knows
the truth about the condition of
things in China? We do not believe it. The ancient empire seems
like a great volcano, in whowe
bowels there Hie rumblings and
slinking*, mid no man can tell
A stalling sight   presented j whether or not there is going to be
itself. Half reclining on the edge
of i huge hole made by the uprooting of a large tree was the body
of a man. Tbe remains were nearly covered ivith diiow,, but little
more than the face being visible.
The dog, a pointer of.mediiim, i>iqe,-
displayed his gladness at tlie sight
of his rescuers by jumping about,
racing up to Crane nnd Nichols,
and returning back to the body
over which he had kept such faithful watch. The snow around the
dead body of the man 'bail. been
thoroughly-well' -packed down by
the dog, showing he had kept close
to the side of his master. There
was no evidence of there having
been a struggle nf any kind; there
was no tracks-'of a jhoifsaj and no
foot prints'indicating triie had lieeu
near. 1 he dead man's tracks made
in the snow and thot/e ot tire illqjg
were visible, hnwevfr, indicating
they had come directly to the spot.
Glancing around young Crane
found i. 22 rifle, some twelve feet
away from the body. As soon as
the remain* were viewed,tliey , were
recognized as tho.-e of Harry Low-
cry, well known in Republic, and
keeper of the Columbia hotel. The
body wa* placed upon a horse, and
the faithful dog following, the party
made their way back to town.
He had been missing some ten
days, nnd when death overtook
him he was attempting to make
his way, home aften*haying been on
a trip toTomdo, where he had mining property. Near his person was
a cartridge belt, but tlie revolver
was not in place. He bail no fond
near him. It is surmised that he
may have been preparing to .light a
fire against the stump of'the fallen
��� tree, but was too much exhausted
to proceed, and falling to sleep he
gradually froze to death.
The last seen of Lowery alive
was on Wednesday of last week, at
Bodie. He had been drinking hard
but started for home on that day.
He got off the Sheridan trail, presumably, and tried to follw the old
Tom Thumb route to town.
How long he had been dead when
his remains were found cannot be
stated, evidently for five days. The
dog wai in a famished condition,
and could scarcely follow to town
so weak was he from exposure and
lack of food. ; ,';
The locality where Lowery lost
his life is an isolated region, save
for two or three rancbet that have
recently been taken tip. CAbout.a
mile from where the body lay is the
cabin of a Mr. Glover, who has a
homestead. But the cabin was not
visible from the spot where-Lowrey
eat down. It is due to the faithfulness of the dog that the body was
an irruption, nor if there is, what it
will amount to. Are the rumblings
in China going to die out? Or will
there be an upheitvel and a little
lava trickling over the edge of the
crater? ' Or will there be nn upheaval, duplicating in its own way,
the terrible explosion of Vesuvius
which overwhelmed Herculaiieum
and Pompeii? These are the questions more easily asked than
answered. We do not believe anyone can answer them.
\ Lei. us iu these days of retrospect,
turn our glance backward to the
early centuries of the Christian era.
At that time a vast horde of people
whom the Romans called.- lionheiii
Barbarians, swept across Europe
and even overthrew the Imperial
City itself! Whence came they?
Who were they? What started
them on their western migration!?
Again," tiiese are questions more
easily asked than answered. Nj>
one oan say by what racial 'dim;-*
vulsion these hordes were sent forth
to overrun Europe as the lava of
Vesuvius overrun the cities at its.
base, und so no one can judge of the'
possibility of another racial irruption which may sweep westward
over the Old World. This is one
of the things which lend such intense interest in China. Are the
crowded millions of that country
going to move? Cuiua may be
likened to a beeliive filled with its
.busy brood of workers. Are the
Chinese going to swarm?
Suppose the answer is in the
affirmative what can the rest of the
world do about it? There are four
hundred millions of people in China.
Suppose that five millions, ten
millions or twenty millions should
begin a western movement. Could
they be stopped, and if so, how?
Artillery could not stop them, that
is certain., Is such a swarming
possible? .Itjiis quite possible.
Europe and America have not been
content to leave China alone. Occidental methods of living are being introduced, and the land simply will not support its present population if these methods become at
all general. The movement may
be slow, put it seems sure to follow
the introduction of western civilization. This is the real Chinese
problem, but it is one with which
the diplomats cannot deal. They
ulay settle certain other matters,
aud secure certain promises from
the rulers of"the country, but these
wil be nothing if once a racial
movement is inaugurated, and it is
this that we think seems visible on
the Chinese horizon.���Colonist.

by Tho*. McAully, and the building

the building was on die wae E. A.

- His room was on the ground floor.
He wae awakened by hearing it rig
- drive past at a rapid  gait.   When
he awoke he smelled smoke and
vthen noticed it coining through the
transom over the door.   He at once
went to all the rooms and woke the
inmates., and as the entire building
-wae filled with smoke, it was with
great difficulty that some of them
got outside safely.   The cash regis-

at the time it was done flames were
coming through  the floor at the
other end of tlie room.   Some  of
-the boarders saved a few articles of
wearing apparel, but iMHt of them
had barely time to slip on a meagre
supply of clothing   and   get  otit-
