Loudon, Sept. 20.—The recent dramatic
development of the Chinese puzzle came
us a disagreeable shock to the people of
Greut Britain nud their chagrin wus intensified by the fact that Ihey were revelling iu their apparent diplomatic triumph iu the disgrace of Li Hung ('hang
and the wane of Itussiuu iniiuence. Not
only in Great Britain but abroad thu
queen dowager's plan is interpreted us u
fresh defeut of British policy.
lt is generally believed that the mis-
sion of the Marquis Ito, the Japanese
Statesman, to China, for the purpose nt
attempting lo bring ubout un offensive
und defensive alliance between Jiipun und
China was the hist straw which aroused
the tigress iu the empress dowager and
enabled the Russian party, led by Li
Hung Chung, to regain its iniiuence. lt
is well known that thc Chinese in spite
of their defeat in tlieir war witli .Japan,
still regard the Japanese as inferior beings and tlie intense hatred of the dowager empress for anything Japanese is also
an acknowledged fact.
Advices received here from the European
capitals indicate tliat political clrcleo anticipate the reinstatement of Li Hung
Chung in power and that the reactionary
wave in China will lead to a closer understanding between tlie United States, Great
Britain and Japan, resulting in combinei]
pressure iii favor of reforms. The French
newspapers rejoice nt the prospect of Li
Hung Chung's return to power, simply
because it would be unpleasant for Great
Tlie Temps, referring to tlio reform
edicts of tlie emperor of China, says:
"His reforming ardor was marked by
more zenl liiun discretion. To suggest
tliat the mandarins publish tlieir accounts
of receipts and expenditures wns like
plucking out their souls.''
Kngluud  nud  the  Sondiiu.
The impatience here to learn the out.
come of the journey of General Sir Herbert Kitchener to Foshoda is in no wise
allayed and although the press on both
sides of the channel is calmer this week,
yet anxiety is evidenced in Great Britain in regard to the effect which the determined action of General Kitchener will
have upon France in view of the critical
political situation in that country. There
are fears tliat the French authorities may
seek a foreign diversion from their internal strife. The Parisian newspapers,
however, adopt a more compromising
tone und instead of declaring thut the
French Hag will never be lowered at Fa-
shoda they now put forward the occupation of that place by Major Marc-hand
as a lever by which France may be able
to obtain advantages elsewhere.
The Eclair, for example, says: "Great
Britain must buy our renunciation of our
claims thero as she bought Germany's."
The Temps also declares the question
is simply one of coming to an agreement
on the conditions of exchange.
Alarming* Situation In France.
The alarming situation in France rivets
the attention of Europe. The excitement
is increasing hourly, new revelations are
expected und a military coup d'etat would
not surprise anybody. The weakness of
M. Brisson, the premier, over the affair
of Lieutenant Colonel Piequart, who is
now in secret confinement in the military
prison of Cherche Jlidi, placed there apparently without thc knowledge of the
government and in spite of the fact that
he was in the hands of a civil court, has
disgusted even his own personal friends,
who call him a coward and a dolt, while
the enemies of a revision of tlie Dreyfus
case, accuse him of being a hypocrite and
of having sold himself to a Dreyfus syndicate, an organization which is undoubtedly existing. General Zurlindcn, who is
once more military governor of Paris,
with tho recognizance of General Chit*
noine, who succeeded the hitler as minister of war, acted without reference to
the premier, JL Brisson, who* with a * majority of his colleagues, was completely
diimfounded at his proceedings.
Tho supporters of the cabinet decline
that Jf. Brisson, in order to save thc constitution, should dismiss Chanoinc and
ZUrlinden, and even arraign them for
treasonable conduct. Only bold action
will secure the supremacy of civil  law.
One satisfactory failure of thc prosecution of Colonel Piequart is that the
war office lias engaged to give him an
open trial, which M. Brisson insisted upon
before he consented to the prisoner's
transfer to the military prison of Cherche
Jlidi. The friends of Colonel Piequart
declare that if lie is publicly tried he will
throw floods of light upon the whole
mystery. . . >

Washington, Sept. 20.—Senator Shoup
stay in Wushington during the Inst two
weeks lias been productive of several
good results for individuals and enterprises in the state of Idaho. First of ull
he came to Washington to learn the rea-
son for the delay in the construction of
the public building at Boise. The senator wus assured before he left here lust
July Hint the work on the public building
would be commenced oil an early ilule.
When he returned here he found that
practically no progress had been made.
In fact the supervising architect's utlicc
hud about decided to let the woik go
over until next spring, dunning that the
weather conditions in Idaho were stic'u
that no material advantage could be
gained by beginning the work iu this full.
Senator Shoup appealed at once to the
secretary of the treasury und hud no diili-
cully iu convincing him thut the weather
in Boise in the winter would not iu any
way interfere with the const ruction ol
lhe building. The secretary at once directed the plans for the building to be expedited in the architect's office.and ulso
ordered the preparation of advertisements
to be at once issued for the various details of the construction.
Weather Durean Service.
Senator Shoup fills also been laboring
for several ycurs to secure the establishment of a weather bureau ut Boise, u
general bureau for the stute of Idaho, it
was not until this year tliat he was successful in having a sufficient appropriation
made for that purpose. The secretary ol
agriculture assured the senator lust July
that the bureau would be promptly established, but owing to the extension of
the bureau service in the West indies, it
has been delayed. The senator had a conference with Chief Moore to learn when
the service for the state of Idaho could
be established and received assurances
tliat it would be done ubout the Urst of
Tlie office whicli will be opened in Idaho
will be state Headquarters and of the first
grade, having a line complement of Instruments which are now being prepared
therefor. To prevent a great rush of applicants for positions in the weather bureau olliee at Boise, il muy bc stated here
thnt ull the employes will be under the
classified civil service, and will therefore
be selected front those skilled in the
weather bureau work iu other cities. But
one exception to this is the position of
messenger in the office, which Senator
Shoup has already secured for Charles
C. Garrett of Boise.

Paris, Sept. 20.—Mme. Piuilinier, wife
of M. Chillies Ernest Puiilinier, member
of the chamber of deputies from the de-
piirliiiciit of Calvados, has added another tragedy io ihe bewildering Intricacies'of Uie Dreyfus plot. Mme. Paul-
mier Friday entered lhe offices ol l.u J-iji
leine uud asked to see M. Milleraiul. M.
Mlllerand was absent and M. OHIvlor,
who was present, stepped forward 1" ie

twice, JI. Ullivier fell t., the llool* wound
cl.    Ile was taken lo a hospital.
.Mine. 1'iiiiliiiier was taken into custody
uml when questioned answered coolly: "l
wish lo kill il. Milleraiul.*'
She explained Hint l.u Lanterne had
slandered herself and husband because
her husband had written the letter lo
General Chanoinc, the minister of war,
with rcferi e to pulling a stop to  the
attacks upon the army provoked by the
Dreyfus affair.
The alleged slander published iu La
Lanterne Was contained in an article written by a journalist named Turol, ami not
by JI. Mlllerand or Ji. Ollivier, in which
mention was made as to the conjugal relations of .Mine. Puiilinier and her husband.
Thc article, it is presumed, was published without JI. Jlillei'iind's knowledge.
One of the bullets llred by Mme. Puiilinier entered Ollivier's chest and the
other struck him in the armpit.
l'lci-iinrt   Is   Stilled.
The military authorities have accomplished iheir plan of stifling Colonel Piequart by placing him mi secret. Colonel
I'ii'qiinrt's friends have been denied admission to the prisoner. His counsel, Jlnitre
Laborie, has twice appeared at the olliee
of the clerk of lhe court martial und up-
plied to sec his client. On both occasions
he was informed Hint 1'iequart had been
placed uu secret and could bc seen only
on un order from the authorities which
order JI. Laborie has been unable to secure.

The successful issue of the attempt tu

When in lighting trim, is believed to be
something over 20 knots an hour. Her
battery at the time of the battle ofT Santiago consisted of two 11-inch, 10 5.5-inch
and a number of rapid fire guns. She
has an 'armor belt of 12 inches over her
most vulnerable parts.
lt cost Spain over $2,000,000 to build

detaching the engine nnd Pacific express

nu top of it. So much explosive was
used lhat tlie cur was literally blown to

The Fanteniine, Volcano and
Active. Operations  on  the  Property
to   Commence    ln    About
Eight Days.
R. A. Brown returned from Rossland,
last Thursday, Wbere he has been for
the past week on matters connected
with resuming operations on the Volcanic, which he expects to commence
about the first of October.
While in Rossland Ur. Brown made
all the necessary arrangements tor the
crown granting of the Wolverine, Iron
Cap and Volcanic, which be lately re-
staked as the Fantine, Shickshock and
Mr. J. Coryell, P. L. S., of Midway,
has been at work tbis week surveying
the properties.
The many friends of Mr. R. A. Brown
will be glad to learn that he has finally
been successful in his efforts to regain
possession of these valuable properties,
that bave been tied up by the Olive
Gold Mining company for the past two
It will be remembered by many readers of the Miner that on August 31st,
18*56, that articles ot incorporation were
filed for the Olive Gold Mining company, for the purpose of operating the
celebrated Volcanic group of five claims,
about eight miles from here up . the
North Fork. The capital stock of the
company was $2,000,000 and the officers
were: S.P. Shope, of Chicago, president; John A. Manly, Grand Forks,
vice-president; Harry W. Treat, Chica-
go,.'secretary; Edward Blewett, Seattle,
treasurer. The trustees, in addition to
the- foregoing gentlemen, consisted of
W.'Call, of Midway, and Neils Larsen,
of this city.
According to tbe terms of tbeir agreement with Mr. Brown, the work of developing the property was to be commenced at once and a comp'ete compressor plant and all the other machinery necessary for tbe successful work-1
ing ot the property was to be installed
at an early date. How well the com-
panyh'as kept its agreement with him
every resident of this section knows—
and beyond contracting a lot of bad
debts with our merchants and others
nothing has ever been done by them
toward developing the property, At
the time of the organization of the company the property to-be acquired by it
was-tabe held in trust by John A. Manly
until such times as tbe company had
fulfilled certain provisions of the agreement, after wbich he was to transfer the
property to the company, and owing to
the failure of the company to carry out
their part the transfer has never been
After waiting for several months for
the Olive Gold Mining company to
comply with their part of the agreement, and becoming satisfied that they
did not intend to do so, Mr. Brown set
about taking steps to regain possession
of bis property. With that view in end
be has been persistently working for
the past twelve or fourteen months, and
at last his labor bas been rewarded and
once more the title to the Volcanic,
Wolverine and Ironcap ii vested in his
name. Once again, in possession of the
property, which is pronounced by every
mining man of experience who has examined it, as being among the largest
and most promising on the North Fork,
or in the Boundary country for that matter, and the result of the development
work about to be done on the Volcano,
as it will hereafter be known, will be
watched with interest by every mining
man in' the' province.
Notwithstanding the fact the Olive
company have been defeated in every
move tbey have made toward freezing
Mr. Brown out, they are still throwing
every obstacle possible in bis way to
prevent him from commencing work on
the property. So far he has been able
to checkmate them, and he feels confident that he will be able to do so as
long as tbey care to keep up the fight.
As an evidence that Mr. Brown de.
{ires to deal perfectly fair and bonest
with tbose associated with bim in tbe
property before organization of the
plive company, and who invested their
anoney in the development of the property inthe early days, it might bi well
(o state that this spring when the claims
were restaked by bin, the first thing he
did was to notify all of them of his action, and dfsired to know what disposition should be made of their interest in
-the property. Invariably the answer
has been they considered that it could
not rest in better hands. With this as-
prance of good feeling and confidence
from his former associates, Mr. Brown
had easy sailing in the Matter of obtaining capital with which to develop his
property. Everything has been done
so qgietly, before anyone realised what
he vas doing, between $700 and $800
bad been expended in getting ready to
commence active operations.
Tbe persistency with which Mr. Brown
has labored to regain pos.essipn of what
rightfully belongs to biit) is worthy of
tbe commendation of everyone who
* (eels confident that he will now turn his
energies toward making the Volcano
pne of the biggeit mines <n the province.
May his brightest expectations be realized is the wish of the Miner.
In this connection a few words in relation to the Volcano mine, whicb is the
principal of tbe group, may not come

North Fork qbout eight miles and is an
iron cap proposition with a junction of
metals, 300 feet to the right and the
same distance to the left of tbe point
where the tunnel is being driven by Mr.
Brown will tap the vein. Tbe ledge to
to the right bas been traced for ten
miles through the country, and at least
100 claims bave been staked off on it;
while the left band vein runs west of
northwest clear over into Greenwood
camp. The main body of the Volcano
runs northeast of cast and there are now
seventy-claims located on the ledge. It
is a low grade proposition, but enormous qnantity of ore insures its being a
paying one when ore is produced.
Inspecting Their Properties.
A. L. White, secretary-tre tsurer of
Knob Hill company, was in the city
Thursday on his way home from a two
weeks visit to the company's property
in Greenwood camp. At present Mr.
White has his headquarters in Montreal
and besides looking after the interest of
tbe Knob Hill, is tbe representative of
tbe Old Ironsides company in that city.
He was accompanied by C. Gait, of
Montreal, and Jay Graves, of Spokane,
both of whom are heavily interested in
tbe Knob Hill and Ironside companies.
In conversation with a representative
of the Miner Mr, White said:
"We came in last Sunday and spent
Monday andTuesday examining the work
being done on the Knob Hill and Ironsides, and are more than satisfied with
tbe results obtained. Just previous to
our arrival at ths mine the drift at the
bottom of the sbuft, which is down 200
feet, ran into solid ore which ,<jivos better values than tbat of the upper levels.
"Wednesday we went to White's
camp where we are interested in the
Lincoln and city of Paris, on wbich we
are at pesent installing a complete
compressor plant, tbe machinery for
which is now on the road between your
city and Ms'rcus."
Struck It  Rich.
Mose Burns and Sam Jerral came
down from Wellington camp, last Sun-
day.where they have been doing development work on the Palmetto for tbe past
several weeks. The work is being done
in a perpendicular shaft 5x7, and is now
down 30 feet.
Last week the boys uncovered a large
vein of very rich sulphide ore which is
improving in looks with each shot. The
samples brought to town by tbem have
every appearance of grey copper and is
pronounced by all wbo bave seen it as
similar in character to that of the Winnipeg mine in the same camp. No
assays bave as yet been made, but tbose
who are competent to know have no
hesitancy in predicting that it will run
over $50.
Mt. Chas. Van Ness and Mose Burns
are the owners of tbe property and they
are so well pleased with the showing
made, they will at once commence running a crosscut to determine the width
of the vein. The property will be
crown granted at once.

Our Wholesale Trade Steadily Increasing.
fiKtWltoii^jjQwwtMiwwwOwirt*^^ \
The Jobbing Business Since Monday
Last   Figures   up    Between
$4,000 and $5,000.
Ever since Its first issue The Miner
has always claimed that Grand Forks
situated as it is, In the center ot one of
the most promising mining and agricultural districts in the province, was bound
to become the natural business cennr
and supply point for the enlire Kettle river and Boundary country. That
our fondest hopes are soon tobe realized
no one, wbo has caielully studied the
situation, will deny. Today Grand Forks
is supplying goods for Gladstone, Mc-
Rae's Landing, the Cove and a number of other points on Christina lake,
Cascade City, Republic, Midway and
Greenwood to say nothing ot the various
mining camps throughout tbe district.
The fact may not be generally known,
but, nevertheless it is true, that the
wholesale trade ot the merchants oi
Grand Forks, since last Monday morning, figures up between $4,000 and $5,000.
The reason for this is very easily explained. With the event of railway
construction through the district, small
stores and hotels have sprung up at
various points throughout tbe district,
all of v.-hich naturally look to the older
towns for their supply of goods. Grand
Forks being situated practically in tbe
center of the territory all that trade
naturally came here. During the past
thirty days representatives of a number
of large wholesale houses have been
quietly looking over the territory with a
view of establishing branches in this
district, and from what wo have been
able to learn there is no doubt but tbat
within six months time there will be
several large wholesale houses established here. That Grand Forks will be to
the Boundary country what Nelson is to
the Kootenays and Spokane to the mining districts of the Northwest there can
be no question.
Steadily Growing.
L. A, Manly, the wholesale liquor,
wine and spirit dealer, received this
week a car load of goods consisting of
all the standard brands of liquors and
wines direct from the importers and
manufacturers. These goods are all in
bond and are of the very highest grades
obtainable. Among the lot is u number of new brands of Scotch whiskey,
brandy and wines which he proposes to
introduce tothe trade of this section.
Among these may be mention Harvey's
Pure Sco'ch Whiskey, manufactured by
John and Robert Harvey & McCoy of
Glasgow, which for fltvor and pureness
has no equal in the world. Another
brand of Scotch whiskey is that put up
by Alex. P. McAlpine & Co., Glasglow,
whicb, while it is not as high a grade as
Harvey's, is pronounced by all who have
used it as being of a very fine quality.
J. Borianne's three star brandy is
another new brand to this section, but
the fact that it is used exclusively by tbe
Union club of Victoria, is sufficient recommendation to place it on all the bars
of this section. Mr. Manly has just
completed a store room, 20x30, in front
of his bended warehouse on Riverside,
and will in the future devote bis entire
time and attention to his wholesale busi-
ness which is increasing daily and gradually extending to all parts of tbe district. His sales at present are running
from $150 to $500 daily.
A large delegation of Grand Forkites
attended the grand opening and chicken
supper given by Mr. and Mrs. Wm.
Graham of Edward's Ferry, last Tuesday evening, and it is the universal verdict of all who were present, that as en-
tamers, Mr. and Mrs. Graham, have few
equals anywhere. Dancing was commenced about 9 o'clock and continued
until 12 when the entire assemblage
sat down to a supper the like
of which has never been equalled in tbe
Boundary country. There was cold
roast turkey, chicken and boiled bam,
salads of all kinds, cake, pie and fruit,
the finest Mocha and Java coffee brewed
to a Queen's taste with genuine cream.
After supper dancing was continued until the 'wee small hours when all returned home tired but well pleased wilh their
evening's entertainment.
Appeal Withdrawn.
Last week John Gretham, a laborer,
sued Railway Contractor Sandgren for
wages to the extent of $16. The action
was brought in the small debts court,
wbere Police Magistrate Johnson gave
judgment tor the Plaintiff, with costs.
Mr. Sandgren feeling dissatisfied with
Ihe magistrates decision, telephoned for
Mr. Lcmay, a Greenwood barrister,
who came over to Grand Forks immediately and appealed the case to the
counly court, but before leaving town
tbe same day, Mr. Lemay thought b *t-
ter of his actions aud withdrew tbe appeal, paying all costs.
H. S. Cayley acted for the plaintiff.
Deny the Story,
Some lime ago a rumor was put in
circulation that the Gooderham -Black-
stock syndicate, ol Rossland, had secured an option op the B. C. in Summit
camp for $500,000, This rumor has
been positively denied by T. Q. Black-
stock, who claims that he did not even
know of the existence of a property by
that name until he read in tbe papers
that his company had bonded it.

Paris, Sept. 21).—At a meeting of the
cabinet this morning, all the ministers
being present, a decision was taken in
favor of revision of the trial of former
Captain Dreyfus, and thc documents in
this ease will be sent to the court of cassation.
Crowds of people outside the ministry
of the Interior, where the cabinet council wus held, loudly cheered, the ministers,
Tho cabinet ordered Minister of Justice Sarrien to lay before Uie court of
cassation the petilion ol Madame Dreyfus
for the revision of her husband's case.
This court, therefore, will decide the legal question us to whether the lirst trial
of Dreyfus was vitiated  hy the forgery

In tlie Inti-jiisi-jeant today Henri Ito
chefoi-t accuses Major EsterllOZy ufliuving
been bribed hy the so called Dreyfus syndicate to "cover klinsali wilh dishonor
by confessing lo a forgery, of which
charge lie was twice acquitted."
Hoohefort adds that he paid Ksterhazy
1,000 francs for copies of all the documents in thc case and in addition, with
two other newspaper men, he paid Ksler-
ha/.y, who was without funds, 300 francs
monthly to prevent him dying of hunger
while waiting to obtain a pension. Continuing, Uochefort says:
"Recently, without any. apparent incentive, Esterhosy mysteriously went .to
London, abandoning 300 francs monthly.
Why this emigration! Who paid for-this
journey? With what money has Ester-
hazy paid for his meals?"
JI. Clemcnceau, iu tlie Aumre, remarks:
"Prance is divided into Iwo camps,
those who conceive that the interests
of the country depend on thc concealment of facts by lies nnd those who
have a sufficiently high esteem of tlie
country to separate enthusiasm from aspersions of justice and truth."
Tlie Libre Parole asserts that Ester-
hazy has telegraphed to the minister ol
war protesting against thc story ■ published in the Observer of London purporting to be a confession made hy lhe
major, the substance of.which was that
he was the author of thc bordereau, the
document whicli is said to have furnished the proof of the guilt of Dreyfus.

.Manager Stuart received a letter from

that thc cabinet ia which the ores from
that district will be displayed is about
completed. It wil'. be four feet square,
He says: "The mineral exhibit we ire
sending will weigh at least 1,000 pounds
uml may reach 2,000. Over 20 mines will
be represented in the exhibit. We have
several large blocks of clean ore which
wc thought we could place on the lloor

"That is the sort of letter that makes
us feel as if wc had uot been working
altogether in. vain," said Manager Btu
art, "A number of camps are coming to
tin' front in just that enterprising way,
and I think the exhibit will'cover the
majority uf thc camps around Spokane.
Bul there are a number which huve not
responded. 1 have almost begged with
tears iu my eyes lo get a display from
Trail Creek division, but tlie claim owners up there seem to have forgotten that
the camp owes something to Spokane,
aud 1 have been unable to get any assurance that un exhibit .will be sent.
"lU-puhliu is almost as bad. That
camp is depending almost entirely on
Spokane to bring it to the front, and yet,
apparently, there is no one there who i;
enterprising enough to take the matter
in hand and get up an ore display for
the fair. In other towns mass meetings
have been called to arrange for it, but
Republic has not made a move. The south
half of the reservation will bc better represented than the north half unless sonic
of those people up there get a move on."

Mevi'iiN   County   Milieu.
Almost thc first mine in Stevens county, and in fact the lirst producer, is the
Old Dominion, situated six miles east of
Colville on Old Dominion mountain. This
property was discovered in March, 1885,
was a producer from the grass roots, has
Inade fortunes directly and indirectly
for scores of men, can boast of more development work than any other mine in
the .stale., aud is still rich with ore bodies at a great depth along the main tunnel, whieh penetrates the mountain to a
depth of almost a mile. Thc mine has
not been worked for nearly two years on
account of the low price of silver, but
the management has recently put a force
to work clearing out the tunnels and fitting thc property up for active development and it is expected that the mine
will again enter upon the work ofextract-
ing oie from the depths that have already been reached by the interior works.
Tho most extensive shipper of ore in
thc state of Washington today is the
Bonanza, 10 miles north of Colville. It
was discovered in the fall of 1895, and
since that time has passed through many
hands. It has been sold under the hammer two or three times, and has been a
most expensive investment for those who
have ventured upon exploiting its ore
dejwsits. Thc present management, however, found it to be a different proposition. A number of Spokane men bought
it a year or so ago at sheriff's sale, and
employed the best skill in the mining
profession to develop it, with the result
that it is today one of the most substantial mines in the state. It is a galena proposition, but the ore bodies are
much heavier than in any other property
of the same character in the country. It
has been shipping two ears of ore per
day to thc smelters of thc coast, and
there seems to bc no limit to the supply
that keeps widening and -coining up as
depth is obtained. About 40 men are cm-
ployed, and aside from thc extraction of
ore, a force of men is kept busy sinking
to greater depth all the time. The lower
workings are down nearly 500 feet, and
tho mine is paying all expenses for dead
work and laying aside a liberal sinking
A Good Object LcHrton*
There is an object lesson in the history
of thc Mountain Lion, in Republic eamp,
for other claim owners to profit by. As
a prospect the claim was not more favorable looking than dozens of others in
the eamp, but W. II. Brown, who owns
half of the claim, is a miner and understands his business. He laid his plans
so that every dollar's worth of work
would make permanent improvement of
the projierty. He first sank a shaft and
uncovered a pay chute. He realized that
thc cheapest and best method of developing the mine would be by tunnel, as it
would act ns a drainage canal and save
the cost of hoisting and hauling ore by
wagon, a large item in most mining operations. He began thc work of driving
inlo the hill. The task would have appalled most men, for it meant over 700
feet of drilling and blasting before he
could reach the ledge. He had to go even
50 feet farther before he demonstrated
lhat he had millions in sight    He and
his partner furnished every dollar that
went into the development until it waa
no longer possible to operate without machinery, when some assistance was called
for. The assistance came promptly, and
it is probable that by July 1, 1899, the
property will be among the dividend payers of the eamp. Jf other claim owners
would follow the example set by Superintendent Brown they would soon
know whether or not their claims were
valuable, and could quickly end their
suspense, ami in most cases it would not

••African  Circus"  In  Conilng-.
A Montreal dispatch to the Toronto
World says tliat Charles J. MeCuaig, the
well known stock broker, has returned
from London, where he spent three
months. He brings the news that tlie
"African Circus" has turned its attention
to Canada. Being asked to explain, Mr.
McCuaig said: "It means that Cecil
Rhodes, Belt and others who have been
operating :u South Africa, have now
turned their eyes toward Canada. Jn
faet, one of 'tlieir number, a British member of parliament, passed through Montreal tlie other day bound for Rossland,
and it is supposed that with his arrival
iu tlie Kootenay quite a number of prop
erties will change hands."
Strike In Mm ih. nd  County.
J, M. McPhee, a well known prospector from thc Slocan country, B. C, who
has been prospecting this summer on the
soutli fork of Flathead river, this state,
returned to Kalispell, Mont, a few days
ago alter doing some work on a claim be
has located there. Mr. McPhee has tiv
feet of high grade gold, stiver and copper ore in the face of au open cut. The
vein, which is from 10 to 12 leet in width
can bc traced nearly the full length of
lhe claim.
Strike In the llnckliorn.
A rich strike has been made in the
Buck horn claim iu Deadwood oamp, An
open cut has exposed an ore body which
gives an average value of 0 1-2 per cent
copper and over $4 gold. A shaft was
sunk 14 feet in this, and from thc bottom
of the shaft values as high as 21 per cent
copper and $0 in gold have been obtained.
This body of ore is no less than 200 feet
wide on the surface. It is of the same
character as tliat in Mother Lode, Sunset
and other big Deadwood properties. The'
Buckhorn is owned by E. A. Bielenbcrg
and J. Dunn.
'llie Kurekit Queen Tunnel.
News comes from Republic that the
showing in the Eureka Queen has greatly improved, the tunnel having encountered quite a fiow of water and the rock
in tlie face showing oxide of iron, both
favorable indications that the expected
ledge is not far away. The property adjoins thc San Poil on the south and it
is the hope of the owners to strike the
San Poil ledge, whieh is thought to run
through tho claim, though its exact
course is not to be determined by surface showings. The properly is owned
by a Spokane company.

" I never can find words with lyhlch
to thank you for what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound haa dons
for me.
" Some years ago I had womb trouble
and doctored for a long time, not seeing any improvement. At times I
would feel well enough, and other
times waa miserable. So It went on
until last October, I felt something
terrible creeping over me, I knew not
what, but kept getting worse, I can
hardly explain my feelings at that
time. I wa* so depressed ln spirits
that I did not wish to live, although I
had everything to live for. Had hysteria, was very nervous; could not,
sleep and was not safe to be left
" Indeed, I thought I would lose my
mind.   No one knows what I endured.
" 1 continued this way until the last
of February, when I saw in a paper a
testimonial of a lady whose case was
similar to mine, and who had been
cured by Lydia E*. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. I determined to try it,
and felt better after the first dose. I
continued taking it, and to-day am a
well woman, aud can say from my
heart, 'Thank God for such a medicine.;." , ', ,.-.-.• . .■ I|(.,, .

Washington, Sept. 20.—The officials
here are watching with interest the progress being made by the military commission in Havana in securing the evacuation
of the island of Cuba. The commission
lias been slow in making reports to tlie
war department, but from the latest it
appears- that tlie body would like to have
more definite Instructions as to procedure.
It seems that (lie Spanish side has Slid
that they could not begin the evacuation
of thc island until tlie first of November
and Unit it could not bc completed before
February 28.
In view of Uie alarming state of the
Cubans, who are suffering from hunger
and their inability to obtain work, the
president decided that he could not assent
to the consumption of so much time.
Therefore he caused the commission to bc
instructed lo demand that thc evacuation
by the .Spaniards begin not later than
October 1") and that it be completed by
December ill next.
What the result of this demand will
be is not yet known, but it is said tho
administration is determined to allow no
dilatory tactics on the part of the Spanish forces in leaving the island, although
disposed lo permit reasonable Indulgence.
