. The old hotel was erected  - by Alex. Stewart 111 itiyS, .some months be
fore lhe, railway  was constructed  into  Feinie,, and    he  had  for  a  long
lime a virtual monopoly of the trade
in boo/crino. At that time there were
no saw mills  here, and  hunl-cr     was
hot)!  scarce  and  expensive,   so   ■ the
walls wero all built ol square hewed
timbers,  and  the  Hour  and  bar fixtures. \\*L.ve     made    ol    split   ccdur.

tliose who had a consuming thirst for
the stuil that makes the drunk come
cared not and willingly, passed o.er
tlu-ir, shekels  for  ledeye   in   bunches.
At that time there     were no bunks
here and comparatively little mouev
in ilrculatioii.  Local contractors always paid their workmen on Snliir-
dav  nights,  nud  often  with  a  large
'iiHioimi ol negotialile paper iu  their

This hre opens up a whole vista cf

The lire was outside the city limits,
but the Fernie lire brigade put ' out
tlie lianas and iu doing so laid unholy hands on one of the company's
lire plugs.* -Now the decree has gone
forth that }iin per hour shnll be col-
leetedlor the use of the compauv's

King John's Qrown
and Treasure
Being Searched for by Antiquarians^

'I   \i
Loudon, Msiy 5.—There is more likelihood' oi, success vfwariling ■ the efforts thai' arc soon to be made ' to
recover the treasure ' lost by King
John neai y six and a half centuries
ago thuii seemed prahahlc when .«.4iinii
inkling of Uie iiiulerlnking leaked out-
rtr*.t.' The Society of Antiquaries is
hacking lhe ."umleilakfng with "money

great faith in the .investigations and
assistant secretary, St. John I.'o.-)*,
who ii •*. l.'U-n <|iiietlv workinj; on tht

will le conducted under his direction."
. KveryL'ody knows—or is supposed
"ti-kiiow— that King John lost his hag

short   cut   across   lhe   Wn'sh    to  es

in hot pursuit. The Wash, it" might

the/j-cogrupliv tlioy leaiued at school
is ti wide aad shallow estuary on tlm
enst const of England, between the
counties of Lincoln and JN'orfolk' John
wns a bad egg. According to one nt-,
his conteiiiporarii-s he was "a knight
without truth, a king without justice, a Christian without faith.", lie'
had signed the Magna .Charta, the
gnpt bulwark of English' fi-teiroiii,
only to .repudiate it, and-when war
broke out'between him iiud. his barons again, he knew lliey would not
give him another cluuicc to break his
-word with them.  In his haste.      to
make' tracks he did not make suilicient allowance for 'tlie tide, nml the
'-iiici-sriwis swallowed up his. army
eliesl and his crown jewels ami a -lol
of other paraptiernalia, that is i.uV*
worth Vastly more than it was in
his time. He had a. close shave liini-

in the coiivsc of the .centuries' il'c

circumstances its recovery would 1 e
so cosily and ^ililHcult iis ,to render
the. prriSOfAits of success well-nigh
•hopeless.* Hut Mr. Hope is able to
slate dermitely that, owinfg to tlw
(I'miigc". thai have taken plaice in the
sea line and the reclamation of Waste
lands,the treasure now, lies some distance inland. In the search loir it
no * diving* will be necessary aud digging operations ' arc comparatively
cheap. '
'• Mr. Hope has mado a map of the
district as it was in King John's
time, tin that map he has" drawn a
line, and somewhere en that line
he'asserts, and probably about forty
le.it below tlie surface, under a substratum of silt, lies King John's
crown jewels and armv pay chest and
the rest of the lost baggage. He has
calculated 'lhe condition of the tide
at the time pf the disaster, and the
approximate position of the baggage
Haiti wh(n the oiirnshing water.-, com
pilled its abandonment.' This enables
him to reduce Still narrower the prob
able location of the treasure. His (el
low antiquarian*-, who have verifiei1.
his. figures and researches, are con
•yinced that thescurcb is well woilh
01 course treasure trove belongs lo
the crown, but for mauv years it has
fullmarket vn ue for whatever it retained, so that discoverers, if success
ful, even jf'they have to give up the
•best part of their find, are assured oi
a rich reward. The coins alone at this
date, are immensely valuable. What
the crown jewels would be worth, it
is impossible to say now, or even
hazard a guess, but -it .is certain that
they would l.e appinised at a big sum
nud historic associations would confer a .considerable price,011 small articles that have no intrinsic value.

Indian Story of
Steamer Valencia
t   t*. t.t»imm.X..~
"Victoria,'.Ma^ 6.—Different Indian^
have hrouglii in the story of an insane wiltl man, .supposed to lie a
survivor of the ill-fated Vule'nc'.i,
who is living in'the woods ,'tiear
Darling Creek, and David l.ogaiu* a
lineman, with a companion, 7 has
started out to , investigate the ' reports. " A       - '
It-is three. months since, the Valencia was-wrecked, and of her .complement' of 154 persons* 15 reachbd Vancouver island .coast and- 20 others
were rescued from a life raft,. It
another unfortunate reached the shor.*.
with, his mind wrecked as*, a ..result
ol the hurdship incident to the disas'
ter, it •' seems ' improbable . tlfe-t h
should live so long under the conditions reported, but the tale so often told by the Indians is thought, by
those resident in the, vicinity to bi*
worlhv oi investigation., ... ',
^It' will' be reincinlicrcd that Mr.

the beach after being' ov.sliirned frAn
a V.oat in. the breakers,. . iold of 7 !>'
ies io his face aud head by contact
wilh the rocks'" and was sitting ' on
the beach gibbering insanely. The
survivors left him there aiid started
over the trail to seek succor at the
telegraph huts at Darling Creek; Nothing anorc was heard of this man,
'It is hardly probable thai this 61111-
.fdrtunate who*' was severely injured
would survive so long.1
Indians of the district have been
badly frightened by the reported pres
ence of the insane man, who, they
say, frequents the vicinity' of Darling Crecle near the mouth of which
is a good clam beach and in whose
valley there are many berries and
roots. „
Oh Monday another body of.a victim of the wreck of the Valencia, thc
decomposed corpse of a child, > was
oickcd'.up.by-Mr.,-I.dgan in the vicinity of thc wreck and was buried*
The bouv could not be identified.

and stocking intact, was* washed

St.  Petevsliurjr
*s, May 8.—If the'pros
ent proposal for the -nationalization
oi land in Russia' he realized it will
probably olfeel an immediate change
in  tho    material situation  of     more
.people   than any siii'jrle  eeonontic   revolution iu the world's  history^'     '   *
It -is  briefly a  scheme  not only  to
' supply land to all landless peasants,
but to round oiu and make Jidutpiaio
the land of those who rent or Ujive
iusullicioiit land. The amount of land.
to he allotted to each to dopood
upon   tho   region,    for  each  of  which
- a certain normal     quantity will ,   Ik*
calculated, adequate to supply th.
pergonal and public necessities of ;
peasant family. ','*
For this purpose it is proposed to
take lands belonging to the crownj
tho cz..ir personally! thc church and
private owners-ill excess of the fixed
normal quantity. The state lands arc
to lie leased, the prices to lie based
upon* production. The expropriate.!
tjj-nds ol private owners shall he paid
for by the government, with {uteres!
hearing corlilicates, the details o)
each case being worked out hy a separate commission created for that pur
peso.     Ihe public lands shall also in>
men Form A Union
appropriated to furnish* \<,*-0od. :!- f 1

taking will require more than one bil-j-

llie Chinese walking delegate will be
abroad in the land. The unexpected
has happ?ned. Conservative as, he i.s
John Ciuiiaiiiau sees one or two things:
in American civili/atiou worth imitating. The local Chinese washermen
hunch eels iu number have organized .for
iHUt'ial protection. Thev have just
.served notice on their eniployerst, the
tyce owners of laundries, that they
will go on strike il wages are not increased oii June I next. The scale has
been submitted. It provides for hii*h-,
cr pay for all classes of help from thj
apprentice at the waslif.ii.> . to tha
expert, whose proficiency   in   squirting
starch on shirt  fronts has  been     accomplished alter long practice.
Chinatown lias'been -shaken to its
foundations, over tlie action of the
helpers in forming- a union "all same
Mdican - man." The employers have
discussed, the situation and have
ieach*jl the conclusion that Alley cannot grant the increase asked for. "Pos-
.'.ibly a compromise will be effected.
The. members of the new union have
completed an aeti\e ■ org"aiiization*
They swear .bv the shade of Confucius
tliat they will secure, the,, increase in
wages or put every Chinese la iuul ry
out. of business. The fateful day approaches. .
Thirst is one of the most iniseralil.-
of tortures: "It is,"' says an-1 authority, "not a mere desire of the lips' i.r
