llolnw Well.
A big strike has-been made iu the
famous Standard thins at Wallace, Id. On
Thursday night the crosscut from the
first shaft level, at n depth of -ilM) feel
below the long tunnel, struck the ore in
lhe big vein.
Since then the miners have crosscut
nine feet ill iiinost solid galena, til) per
cent of which is clean stripping ore.
Tills is the lirst level opened below the
permanent water line in this mine, and
gives assurance of the continuity In depth
of Ihis great ore chute. The slrike is
1100 feet below tlie surface. The ore
assays from li "to 70 per cent in lead,
mid from 58 to Ul ounces in silver. This
is even belter than the line ore bodies
above, from whicli the Standard people
have paid their great dividends running
from |55,000 to .1180,000 per month.
' The mine, under the management ol
John A. Finch and A. li. Campbell, is
now employing about 150 men, and is
shipping about 300 tons of ore per day.
The new ore body will bc opened up as
rapidly us possible, and shipments will
then bc increased.
Tlie company has ordered a new* hoist,
and it will bc installed about the lirst
of December. It will be large enough lo
sink 500 feet below the long tunnel level,
nnd will cost $40,000. The cylinders will
bc 00x20, Willi Corliss valves, Wake eon-
dettsers and all the modern improvements. It will sit in a large chamber,
30 feet wide, 04 feet high, aud 80 feet
long, at n depth from the surface of 900
feet. : : "' 	
Strike  in  tlie  Le  Rol.
Anothei' momentous strike has been
made in the Lc Koi, this time iu the
slopes mid way between the 500 and Hub
(oot levels. Eight feet of ore has been
uncovered, averaging 18 per cent copper,
$50 in gold and 10 ounces in silver,
which, according to present prices ol
copper and silver, gives a total value ol
$100.10 per ion. Willi copper at 12;
cents, lhe copper value alone, is $44.10,
and lhe silver, al 00 cenls per ounce,
is worth $0. The new lind is thc rich
est that has ever been discovered in thymine with tlie exception ol* the ore .in the
l'idpiith slope, which carries about equal
values. *
The recent discovery was made in a
peculiar way. The ledge at the' poihl
wheTe thc ore was found is about 00 feet
wide, and ore in it occurs in streaks. Development of the mine had been carried
on in one of these streaks, which lnnl
been sloped for a width of 20 feet. -\
large body of low grade'ore was removed on llie footwall side of Ihe stope. Lasl
week Superintendent Trcgcar put a machine at work crosscutting the low-
grade rock, which proved to be about 15
leet thick, wlien it gave wny to an eight
foot body of splendid gold-copper ore lying close to the footwall,
Need  ( oncciitnitliiir  Plants.
Kvery mining man who has visited
thc gold belt of the Coeur d'Alenes since
quartz mining became an established industry has commented on the lack ol
improved concentrating machinery, although all our ores are base enough after a few feet depth is attained that a
large, part of the values cun not be sav
ed on the plates. This backwardness i.
the more noticeable because on the south
fork the silver-lend miners have the
most perfect machinery to bc found anywhere in the world.
Until less than a year ago the mills
had nothing more effective tuon bumper
concentrators—tho crudest concentrating implement known—nothing else hav
ing been tried except iu the Jenkins nnd
Daddy mills, where canvas pbmLs had
becn put in with very indifferent success.
Last spring there was a Willley van-
ncr added to thc Idaho pant, but the mill
was shut down about thc same time, so
there was no opportunity to test it. In
Colorado it has proved very successful
on gold ores anil recently the llranite
Alining Company put one ill its mill
seven miles east of town.
Hlch Ore In the Wonder.
As thc claims on the soiith Half are
opened up they arc showing results thai
aro far superior to their surface promise.

und himself. Thc development on the
Wonder consists of two shafts and some
surface work. Samples taken from surface cuts assay $111.84. From thc bottom
of an ill-foot Blinft the ore assayed $00.87
in gold and four ounces in silver per
ton. From the bottom of a 10-foot shaft,
in 10 feet of solid ore, the assays showed a value of $50.53 in gold and $2.8-!
in silver.
The Wonder claim is near Ihe 25-milc
post on the San Toil river and about
three miles south of the Davis pomp.
There arc several other claims that have
equally good surface showings but the
development upon them ls very little.

and Ihey have never felt justified in pulling on nny considerable force, contenting themselves wilh working (he ground
with two or lliree men, mnjjcciisionnll)*

a number of claims in the group on
which ore has been found, so there is
room for several men working entirely
separate from each other. Wherever
found llie ore has been iuueh the same,
being clean and high grade, netting them
from $2,000 to $3,000 per carload above
lhe freight and smelter charges. They

Falmouth, Oct. 10.—The liritish
steamer Mohegan-, Captain Crilliths, be-
longing to Hie Atlantic Transport Coin-
puny, has becn wrecked in tlie vicinity
ul The Lizard, between the .Manacles and
thu lowlands. It is believed ubout 143
persons were drowned.
Tbe Mohegun left London for -New
York Thursday, having on board, so far
as ascertained at present, 50 passengers
und a crew of 115. When the steamer
was seen iu distress, lifeboats went out
from the shore and every effort was made
to save the passengers. The coast nt this
point is extremely dangerous and has
been Hie scene of numerous wrecks. The
general opinion is thnt the machinery ol
the Mohegun became disabled during the
heavy easterly gale which wus blowing
und she ran ashore and foundered,
A number of tugs, which put out from
Ihis port to Hie assistance of the Mohegan were compelled to return without
being able lo approach tho vessel, owing
to tlie severity of the weather. The life
boats landed 31 of the passengers and
crew. One of the former, it woman, died
afler boing brought ashore. There arc rumors unconfirmed as this dispatch i.s sent
tliat another lifeboat succeeded in saving
six more persons.
The survivors of thc Mohegan without
exception spenk in the highest terms of
thc devotion, heroism and coolness displayed by the officers and crew of the ill-
fated steamer, nnd declare that ail were
instantly ut tlieir posts when it was
known tliat she had struck, 'ine perilous
position of Hie ship was noticed ou shore
and a warning rocket was sent up, but it
was too late then to avoid the catas-'
tropbe, which occurred so suddenly that
there was not sufficient time to get all
the life Saving apparatus out of the ship.
Tlie terror of the scene was indescribable
—men jumped overboard in an agony of
despair, and the women passengers huddled together und refused to leave the
deck. The officers remained on the bridge
lo the last and many instances of sacri*
lice are recorded.
Members of the crew nre known to
havo stood by und watched the boats
launched and put oil* when it was apparent that Hiese were Hie only means by
w hich their own lives could be saved.. A
lifeboat with a loud of 40 passengers on
its way to the shore, passed muny who
were buttling for their lives in the water,
whom it was impossible to snve. •
The villagers, headed by Hie vicar an.l
coast guurd, stood on the shore and
cheered the boat. \Vhen tlie lifeboat entered the lit tio cove Hie fishermen waded
into Hie sou lo help drug the exhausted
survivors to their homes, which had already been prepared for their reception
and the vicar attended the injured.
Then the lifeboat was again launched
nnd put out for the wreck, on its outward
journey, picking up three survivors. 'Ihe
trip to the wreck was fruitless, so far as
taking any one from tlie vessel was concerned, but on its way back to the shore
Hi other survivors were taken from ths
shore. This wa.s just before daybreak.
Tlie latest list of the rescued shows th...
only U passengers were saved, ini-lnding
the Poiubertons and a maid named Uegan
or Ryan.
Thc name R. Kelly appears twice but

Falmouth, Ocf. 17.—A dispatch from
St. Kcverne, a sit. town a little to the
eastward of tluT^ lutclcs. suid tliat IS
bodies from the nffohegan have been
washed ashore there.
A me ber of the Port nonstock boat,
yew named James gave a graphic account of Hie wreck. lie said that as soon
as the disaster wns announced his crew
was summoned to the boat and proceeded
to the Manacles. Thc night was piteh
dark and no roeks were discernible, but
they heard shouting and pulled toward
the spot from whicli the voices camo. Xo
sleamer was iti sight, but the lifeboat
came across nn overturned lifeboat to
which four or live men were'clinging.
They were taken on board tne lifeboat.
Later the crew hoard shouting near the
overturned lifeboat, and with grapnels
managed to right it. Inside thc bout they
found a woman and two or three men
alive. Thc woman was so tightly jammed
in the wreckage that thc lifebont men
had to cut away thc thwarts of thc small
boat beforo they could extricate her.
James said the lifebont passed several
bodies of men and women and picked up
a couple of men who were Hooting on
wreckage. The lifeboat then met a ship's
boat having on board 22 passengers anil
crew nil of whom would huve been
speedily lost if not rescued nt thut time,
ns the boat was waterlogged and rapidly
drifting towards Hie rocks. Tho occupants of this boat were taken into the
I'lueky Women.
While the latter was beating homeward
she picked up Miss Noble oi Baltimore
"She is lho pluckiest lady I ever saw in
HIT life," said James. "She shouted. 'Don".
shove me an our, give me a rope.' The
sea then swept her towards us nnd we
caught hcr hands and got her safely ou
board in as good a slate as could be expected. We hud 48 persons then in the
boat, including tho crew, and could hear
shouting from tho steamer. We approached her and saw Steward Gray clinging to
the jigger mast. Wc (hen saw that all
four ninsls were still standing nnd the
survivors were clinging to thein. We
backed in right over the wreck nnd sue
cceded in rescuing tho boatswain, cook
und others. Next we rescued nn engineer
who wns clinging lo thc steamer's fun
nel. All this occupied several hours. We
then mude for the shore."

Further advices from St. Kcverne snys
the Panic on tlie Mohegan was terrible
and the cries of despair were heard on
One passenger cut away the falls of .-.

Miss Kondebusli ami her mother, Mr*.
Grandin, entered a ship's boat, whicli wa-
capsized, ard Mis. Grandin was jammed
between this boat and a lifeboat. One ot
the lifeboat's crew, at great personal risk,
jumped ou board ihe steamer's boat after
tlio latter hud righted and pulled .Mrs.

The Kid w!*o presides ovcr the columns of that great "lag," thc Boundary
Ciuek Times, is suffering from an other
attack of thi-. dreaded disease known as
"Gteeneye." It is a peculiar disease
■tnd has a different eliect on its victims.
This lasl attack of the Greenwood
"youth"' must be a very bid case, if one
his to judge from the amount ol vile
bile he relieved himstll of in tbe last
issue uilh\l alleged paper. Alter de*
voling considerable space in denouncing the editor of the Miner as a liar, he
turns his 'y-ii-.ui null" lose on the
merchants of Qrand Korks, attacks their
ri 1aact.1l oredtt, and closes with the
iullo-viug :
"Grand Forks is not in the  Boundary
Creek country; does not, nor can it ever
do, tbe bustncsB ol thc Boundary Creek
country,   lt is a poor, miserable, rural
hamlet, situated in a frog pond near the
Kettle   r-.ver,   sur ounded    by a   lew
beautiful famis but miles away from the
mining cen'ers and from the business of
the mining camps.    Its people  quarrel
among themselves aud  take advantage [
of every opportunity to sh»w tbat they
have no confidence in  tbe town ^ ' in I
each other.   It is a wholesale centre for j
nothing i-nt gossip and scandal.    As a j
^Manufacturing .town, its most striking [
pronuctions are the amusingly  extravagant   effusions   of thc Grand    Forks
The cauie of this violent out break on
the part of the Times, was an
article which appeared in the Miner
week before last, setting forth the ad-
Vantages of G*and Forks as a wholesale
and jobbing point, and claiming that the
merchants were doing a bigger whnle-
j .-„*.* and jobbing business than all the
other towns in the district.
Any Individual who ls so mil or self
adrnitation aud conceit that everybody
'yt-u does not concide with him and ail
his views, is a liar and a dapaphool.there
is no argument in him. Aj to (he financial standing of tbe business men of
prand Forks, as compared with those of
Greenwood, is a matter that in of no concern of the Miner or the public.
The ravings of this unfortunate youth
regarding the  city   of   Grand   Forks
amonnts to ought, for any town wbich
has uothing more to recommend it as a
business point and suitable place for investment than belettling other towns in
tbe district who happen to be more fortunate as to location  and  surroundings
l>a$ ve(*y little to offer.    In conclusion
wo will say   that tbe   Times style of
journalism may satisfy the stockholders
of that concern, but if the editor would
use the space he devotes to vilefyiDg
surrounding towns and those who happen to differ with his personal views to
settinjj   fourth    the   advantages   that
Greenwood bas (if it has any)] as atown,
the majority   of the residents of that
place would be better satisfied with his
tfforts as a journalist.

Natural Distributing   Point   For

May Change The Route.
A rumor hits been in strculation in
railroad circles for the past ten days
that the C. P. R, contemplates a change
in its main line from tbe summit between Brown's and Eholt creeks to
Midway. Parties who are id a position
to know whereof they speak are authority for the statement tbat a more desirable, cheaper and several miles shorter
route has been found than going down
Eholt creek to Greenwood city then
following Boundary creek to Midway.
Tbe discovery was made in running a
a spur from the head of Eholt .creek to
tap tbe rich mines ot Greenwood,
Wellington and Central camps. A
LhroHi-h investigation of the route has
proven that while it is not only throughly practical, it will cost several hundred
thousand dollars less to construct, as it
will save building between twelve and
fifteen miles of road, which is quite an
item in the construction of any line,
Color is given to this report by the fact
that Chief Engineer Tye has been suddenly summons to Montreal, and that
Mr. Stewart, manager for Mann, Folley
& Larson, has been notified r.ot io let
any contracts beyond tbe Summit at
Brown's creek qntil further instruclions
from Montreal bad been received That
(bere is something in the «i .d no one
disputes, but just what it ij the C. P. R.
officials here don't seem to know, and if
they do, are not giving the public the
benefit of their knowledge.
Police Court.
Last Thursday Ed. Ennies appeared
in the police court to answer to the
charge of being drunic and disorderly.
Owing to the fact that the accised was a
mere boy Police Magistrate Johnson let
him off on bis promising to leave the
city within half an hour.
Small debts Court.
Yesterday J. H. Fleming, a frieghten
sued Petro Dener.srie.an Italian railway
foreman for the sum of $44, being balance due on making the round trip from
Brooklyn to Grand Forks with a load of
bagg-ige. The case was brought in the
small debts court, where Police Magistrate Johnson gave judgment for the
amount of the bill wilh costs.
Another North Fork Hotel,
a E. Lambert and Frank Hagenberg
are building a hotel on tbe south fork of
Brown's creek, abont two miles this
side of the summit on the tote road between McDonell'a and Hanson's camps.
The building will be constructed of
logs, 30x10 feetjlwo stories high, and is
being erected on a pre emption recently
taken up by Mr. Lambert.
Be Careful.
Witji the advent of cold weather
comes the habitual wood thief. Several
reBidents of this town have seen parties
stealing their fuel at nights of late, lt
would be well for tbe thieves to bear in
mind that they are being watched, and
it will be only a matter of time until
they appear in the police court to answer to a contemptable charge.
Opened For Business.
The Windsor lodging house and
saloon was opened to the public last
Saturday night. Messrs. Cox and Jones
the proprietors, are well known and experienced hotel men having been in
business at Wardner and other towns
along the Crows' Nest Pass, have
spared neither expense or pains in lilting up the place. If you want a nice
clean room, any kind of liquid refreshments or a gaud cigar give the boys a
c ill, because they can accommodiate
you. As mixologists they have no

A report was current on the street
Thursday to the effect that an English
syndicate had secured an option on a
group of claims up thc North Fork and
that as soon as the deal was consumated
extensive development would be commenced.
The rumor further stated that fifteen
per cent of tho puichase money, which
aggregates about $44,000, bad been paid
in cash and the balance was to be paid
in sixty days.
Mr. Tobiassen and Mr. Evans both
being out of the city, tbey could not be
seen to verify tbe report, but a representative of the Minek called upon
Mr. McCallum, and in answer to tbe
inquiry "that if such was the case?" that
gentleman said:
"Mr. Larson and myself last week
gave a thirty day option on the Noon
Day, to paities representing an English
syndicate headed by a Mr. Shaw, of
London. On Wednesday ct this week,
his agent came to us and made a proposition to change the option to fifteen
per cent cash and the balance in sixty
days. This proposition was accepted
and the money has been paid. The
reason given for tbe change, was tbat
Mr. Shaw was about to start for London
to close up the deal and that he was
afraid that he could not get back in
thirty days time.
"1 do not know for su re whether Mr.
Tobiassen's Golden Eagle is includ-
in the deal or not, but understand it is. Mr. Shaw's representative informed me that immediately upon
his return a large force ot men
would be put to work on the property
and its development would be pushed
as rapidly as possible, This company
also expects to operate largely in the
North Fork district and will require
other properties as rapidly as they can
be secured."
Later—Late yesterday afternoon the
above report was verified by Mr. Thomas
Parkinson,wbo help put the deal through.
The properties included in the group
consists of tho Golden Eagle, owned by
C. M. Tobiassen; the Alaskya, owned by
McCallum and Larson; Mammon and
Junction City, owned by Dave Evans
and Sam Rose, of this city and J. B. Sargent, of Spokane. Tobiassen gets s'.'ls,-
000, Evans, Rose and Sargent $8,ooo,
and McCallum and Larson $i,ooo; fifteen per cent of whicb has been paid.

property next week and which will be

$20 to $58 in gold and copper with about
12 ounces of silver, mostly gold and
while here Mr. Shaw paid a visit to
the Pathfinder and he was so well pleased
with the property that he made the boys
a very flattering offer for it, which they
have now under consideration. Assays
made from seven samples taken from
the property by him averaged $21, and
returns from a like number of samples
sent lo Trail for treatment, gives an average a little above that.
Machinery For The City ol Paris
Mr. Henry White, manager of the
City of Paris Gold Mining and Milling
Company, which owns the City of Paris,
Lincoln and No. 4 mineral claims
situated about six miles from Grand
Forks, in Central camp, was in the city
last Tuesday tracing up a portion of tbe
compressor plant, wbich at present is
being installed on that property, which
left marcus some ten days ago. An investigation revealed the fact tbat it had
been sent to the Ironsides, in Greenwood camp, by mistake.
At present Mr, White has about
twenty-five men at work at the City of
Paris, on which a 600-foot tunnel is being driven to tap the main ledge, in the
old workings on tbe property, which
consists of a shaft sunk on the ledge,
which in a large body of high grade.ore.
Last fall and winter Mr. White sunk
a shaft op the Lincoln 1 dge to a depth
of ninety feot, and started to run across-
cut to tap the ledge on the City of Paris,
when nearly a 100 feet of wo k had been
done, tbe water drove them out just before the ledge was reached. The result
attained by the crosscut were so satisfactory, tbat a tunnel was started on Ihe
No. 4 at a ppint about 630 foet distance
from where it was expected to tap the

The character of the ore on the Humming Rird is improving with every

between three and a half to four miles
from Grand Foiks. The specimen
shown contained galena and copper and
assayed as high as $185. Mr, Minor
says that be has a grod sized ledge of
it, which is widening as depth is attained.
his death
Tbe particulars of the sad affair, as
learned from Mr. Ira Black, ol Cascade
City, are about as follows:
Mr, Curtis, who for some time past
has been in the employ of Comstock &
Co., at Cascade City, was reluming
home from this city having brought up
a party of C. P. R. railway surveyors
On going down tbe hill just this side of
Mr. Graham's place he neglected to use
the brake on the wagon and his team
got thc best of bim and went down tbe
hill at a lively gait. Just at the foot of
the hill, and where the railroad grade
crosses the old wagon road, there is a
short turn in the load. On reaching
tbis point a team coming up the hill wa
encountered, which owing to lhe darkness had been unobserved by Mr. Curtis, whose team shied and went over the
bank turning the buggy onto its side,
throwing him to the ground head first,
in such a manner tbat bis head was
wedged between the bub of the wagon
wheel and a large boulder laying on the
side of the road, cutting an ugly gash on
the back of his head, smashing the skull
and driving it down onto his brain.
The team being a perfectly gentle one
stopped as soon as the accident occui-
At the time the accident happened
another Cascade pirty was following
close behind Mr. Curtis, who with the
assistance of the driver of the team
coming this way, extracted tbe unfortunate man from his perilous position. The
unconscious man was removed to
Cascade City, where,the best medical
aid attainable was secured, but he was
beyond all human aid and died botween 9 and 10 o'clock Tuesday
Very little is known of the deceased
beyond the fact tbat be is an old timer
in the Slocan and Kootenay districts,
having prospected there for the past
nine or ten years. When the north half
of the reservation was thrown open he
drifted over this way and since that
time has done more or less prospecting
on tbis and the other side of tbe line.
Mr. Curtis was a pioneer during the
early mining boom of Montana and is
said to have made several big sales and
is credited with being a "high roller"
during the time of his prosperity. Like
almost all olhcr mining men he spent
his money as fast as he made it, and
when he woke up and found himsel
broke, he went back to the hills to rus
tic fer another stake.
About seven years ago he prospected
for Ira Block in the Slocan cuntry, who
speaks in the highest terms of htm as a
miner and prospector. He was about
;o years old, generous to a fault and
would divide his last.crust of bread with
a brother prospector w*h*^ was in distress
and was well thought of by all who
knew hitn. It is thought by some that
he has a number of children now living
somewhere in Montana,

Shores of the Uoltlc.
Amber te the fossilized gum of the pine
tree of ancient days, which by the action
of the sen and wind was converted into
tlie material we see nowadays. The use
of amber is very old, for we lind it mentioned iu the bible. Amber burns easily, sending up a black smoke and giving forth a fragrance. Rubbed on one's
hand it gives forth a smell of camphor
and eucalyptus, 'Ihis rubbing is a good
test, of the genuineness oi amber.
Flies and insects are ofteu found in amber and scientists have classified any
number of lizards, ants, beetles, moths
aud fragments of wood which otherwise
we should have never known about. The
wonder is that the insects nre preserved
SO perfectly and completely. if a (ly
alights in syrup t'vevy one knows that its
struggles to get free usually result in the
demoralization of the insect, but evidently the pine gum did its work instantaneously.
The town of Konigsberg, on the Baltic,
is in tho center of the amber industry.
Where the Baltic now washes there was
once dry land, covered with waving
pines, which the salt water finally reached. The pine sunk below the sea, the
soil ate up thc woody matter and the
pine gum, instead of decaying, mummified into amber. Once tlm Prussian
government issued licenses and any one
niigliL go amber hunting. The income
was very large and finally the business
all consolidated in the hands of one firm,
which now employs some 2000 people. It
lias its own railway and thc colony of
workers i.s self supporting. The amber
hunters dredge until they find a blue loam,
which signifies amber in the vicinity.
Then a tunnel is run out from shore and
regular mining proceeds. In some places
the coast is a network of burrows,

in making things Interesting for a 'tenderfoot.' One night a few of them got
hold of a Huston dude and escorted hiin
to a big general store that was a popular
rendezvous for a gang of practical jokers.
The dude turned out to be a pretty good
sort of a fellow, and finally the proprietor
got his ear and warned hirn lhat the boys
were going to get up u fake fight as a
finale, In which one of them would pretend lo throw a stick of dynamite In lhe
" 'Just sit quiet, sonny,' he said, "and
they will respect your nerve.'
"The dude thanked him and said he
would. Presently the row began, and in
less time than it takes to tell it blank
cartridges wore cracking In all directions.
The dude simply grinned and took out a
cigarette. At that one of the crowd
snatched up a slick from a box and, yelling that he was going to blow everybody
to hades, threw It into the open stove. It
so happened that he went to the w'rong
box and got hold of an actual, sure-
enough piece of dynamite instead of the
dummy which bad been prepared In a<l-
vance. This wus noticed almost immediately and the jokers scattered like seared
rabbits, leaving the dude In possession.
As usually happens, the dynamite merely
burned like so much wax. The gang Dually returned and found the dude smoking
his cigarette, but when he realized that
he bad really been sitting on the edge of
a volcano he nearly fainted and gave
away the secret of his nerve. Otherwise
he would have passed into history as the

According to Kzekiel Bonzy, who i«
held to be one of the most accurate readers of a goose's brea-stbonc in Maine, the
coming winter is going to be a snorter.
It is to start with a snowstorm, which
wnl come in November, und the snow
will stay on the ground for the purpose
of catching and holding other snowstorms
that will arrive frequently and with groat
vigor until about the middle of Mureli.
Mixed in with the oulput of snow will
be hail, wind, and consecutive jn'riods
of zero weather, which will cause u great
demand for overcoats and double mittens.
For the. first time in eight years thc
goose bono rs white at tlie front end, indicating an early snowfall. As the bone
of ISOS-ilO is xevy wide and mostly white
over all its surface, Mr. Ikmzy infers
there will be deep snow and good sledding for fully live months. His conclusions arc well reinforced hy researched
among corn husks, beechnut burrs and
the fur of animals, all of which are uncommonly thick and well laid on.
Acting on Mr. Itonzy's advice the lumbermen are planning to go into Uie woods
'early, and operators arc getting options
upon large areas of stunrpagc. For three
'years past Mr. llonzy has predicted tliat
I there would he no snow until after tlie
new yoar and has hit it light every time.
Therefore much confidence is placed in
his prognostications this year.
London, Oct. 17.—Lust week opened
with an enormous rattling of sabers over
Fashoda and ended with thc rumblings
of a revolutionary volcano in Paris, Thc
situation arising out of the question between Great Britain and France as to the
right of occupying Fashoda is extremely
grave. Kvery thing hinges on the nature
of the rejHirt of Major Marehand, the
French commander at Fashoda, which is
on its way from Khartoum to Paris. The
evacuation of Fashoda by the French
must, however, take place if wnr between
Qreat Britain and France is to be avoided, as the Marquis of Salisbury has nailed his colors to the mast and can not
recede from tlie position he has taken up,
and in which he received the unanimous
support  of the country.
The Speaker, the organ of the liberal
party, refers plainly this week lo the impossibility oi relinquishing the British
claims, and points out that if it comes to
war it will not be merely for Fashoda,
hut for the maintenance of Ureat Hrit-
nhfs place iu the world, plus her undoubted rights.
The Speaker adds:    "If we abandoned
our claims Englishmen would not only
lost tiie respect of others, hut would lose
their own self-respect, and Knglish statesmanship would be dragged in the mire.'
France i* HeiiKintf.
These emphatic declarations of the
Knglish press ami public men have already had a certain iniiuence across the
channel, and the inspired statements of
the French press belittle the importance
of Fashoda and shift the ground lo an
undefined claim upon the province of
ltahr-EI-Ohaznl and a port on the Nile.
The mouthpiece of thc French foreign
ofiice is preparing France for the abandonment of Fashoda by asserting that
Major Marehand overshot his goal und
lhat instead of ging to Fashoda he ought
to have stopped at the coullucnce of the
Many Uritish publicists scout the idea
that France will be permitted to install
herself on the Bahr-Kl-Ghazal, whieh is
described as tbe paying reef of ihe .Sou
dan. All the rest of the reconquered territory as far as Fashoda is comparatively
valueless, being mostly desert ground,
which can not be made to pay for many
years to come. But the ltahr-Kl-Ohuzal
territory is thickly populated and bus
magnificent trade prospects. During the
governorship of tlie late General Gordon, Bahr-Kl-Gliazal had immense exports of ivory, grain, beeswax, skins, etc.,
while it contained whole forests of arrow
root. llesides, the cotton growth there
surpasses the Egyptian product.
Tho Chauvenist Paris papers are denouncing Great Britain nnd are doing
their utmost to excite French feeling in
the matter. Other French papers are
making bitter complaints of Russia's inactivity.

were  officially  reported  Saturday.
Without the intervention of frost the
Spread of yellow fever over the entire
state of .Mississippi seems a certainty,
ach night's report indicates how surely
und rapidly the disease is getting lh"
whole state into its clutches. Two counties were added this week to the list ol
the infected, making a total of 17 eoun-
: tics or nearly 25 per cent of the whole
number, These arc Pearl River and 1'er-
ry, both iu the southeastern part of the
si ate.
The continuance of the present   warm
Weather will guarantee a further spread,
which the resources of the state board
I seem unable to stop.   The disease is linn-
; Iy rooted in all the different sections ot
[ Mississippi and ils appearance in counties
| adjoining those already  in the grasp ol
the fever is only a question of a short
time.    The state board of health  has, ot
course, long ago despaired of continuing
the infection, and is now devoting ilsell
more to the general work of relief and 8C
curing of nurses for the places that are
stricken.    It  is still   waging a  stubborn
| but hopeless fight  against lhe rapid advance and whenever a new place  is ra-
! ported a state inspector is sent at once
' witli   orders   to   isolate,  and   cordon   the
I town.    As a general  thing, however, the
exi>osure has usually been too widespread

At the capital the work of enrolling
immune nurses under the Howard association still goes on. Jackson is headquarters from whence they are distribut

the demand. Many have been secured
from Xew Orleans and Memphis. The
appeal of the governor of the state to
the federal government for relief has had
the effect of arousing neighboring states
to the necessities of the situation. Aboul
$2,000 1ms been raised in Memphis for
general distribution in the shape of food
and supplies. The helpless destitution ol
negro rcconeentradoes continues in Jackson and other towns without material
alleviation. They crowd as close to the
guard line ns possible wheu any one goes
tlown near the cordoned district, and
beg eagerly for money and supplies. Many

Nearly 50 years ago General Adair, tlie
noted horticulturist of Hnwesville, 1 '■>'.,
attended an exhibition ni Louisville.
There he met Lawrence Young, an enthusiast from Jefferson county, who had
on exhibition what he termed a white
damson plum. General Adair had never
heard of the variety before and was anxious for some of the trees. Mr. Young
promised to send him some, but for sonic
reason foiled to do so. About 20 years
ago the general made another effort but
learned that Young had died. A few
years later Major Haines of Louisville
visited in Hawcsville and told General
Adair that lie knew the Young farm, but
that no such plum hnd ever grown upon
it: but he promised to examine all the
surrounding farms and see if he could
lind the desired fruit. About 10 years
ago Major Taylor found some small plum
sprouts in an abandoned feme comer
near the Young farm anu sent them to
Adair, who planted them and improved
them. He has been rewarded by producing a fine milk-white damson, sweet a--
sugar, and about four times as large as
the old blue damson. This new plum
never decays, but dries up like a raisin,
and never falls from the tree. They have
been known to keep in house for two
years. General Adair is the only man
in the world who lias this fine plum,
and he has only a few trees. Judge John
Adair is going to plant 5000 of the trees.
