Spokane, Nov. 14.—It U feared that
,1a}1 il. Adams, the well known local at
torncy, lost hia life last--evening by fall
ing from Ihe west bound Northern Pacilic train at some point along the road
between Hope, Idaho, und this city. It
is known lie entered the train at Hope
and thai he was not on board when the
train reached Spokane. Tho railroad
company hus went out two special engines and put a large number of section
hands-to work searching along the track-
hut nothing delinile has been heard here
of tho result,
Mr. Adams had been to IIopo with G.
S. Gnbbart, on business. They entered
the train together at that eity and sat
down in the same seat in the coach. Mr,
Adams, shortly afler the train started
westward, left his seat to go back to the
diner, leaving his overcoat on the seat.
That was the last time Air. Gabbart saw
Wlien the train reached Spokane Mr.
Adams did not appear. A search of the
train showed he was not on board. The
railroad officials were notified und trainmen along the line were instructed to run
slowly anil carefully examine the track
between liope and here as they passed
along. A freight train, which received
these orders at Athol, reached Spokane-
before midnight und reported that, no
trace of the missing man could be found.

train eight miles west of Hope. After thc
examination of a dumber, of witnesses,
thc jury returned a verdict of accidental
death by falling from a moving train.
Mrs. Dr. C. 15. Liebcrg, the Northern
Pacilic physician at Hope, was one of tlie
principal witnesses. She testified that
hIic had know' Mr. Adams for six years
and that he had dined at her house Sunday afternoon a few hours prior to the
tragedy. After eating a hearty meal he
complained of drowsiness.
She stated that iif her opinion he had
been stricken with Apoplexy while passing from one car to another and fell from
tlie train. She said ubout six weeks ago
Mr. Adams had consulted her about his
health and had stated tnat he feared a
stroke of apoplexy. He complained of
pains in the region of thc heart and of an
oppressing feeling of fullness.

from thc beginning as the site and sceue
of a greater and grander development, for
the unvarying course of things during
the forty or fifty centuries of which man
has knowledge must change if here are
not one day gathered the riches of the
world. Pray God we prove ourselves
worthy actors in the drama of the future.
Now, Therefore, In conformity with
time honored and long established usage.
T, John K. Kogers, governor of tlie state
of Washington, do hereby appoint Thursday, November 24, A. D. 18!tS, a day of
pubiie thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed ■with appropriate services by all.
Let us in our homes and in our places of
worship render thanks to God for his
abundant mercies. In testimony whereof.
1 have hereunto set my hand and caused
to be aflixed the great seal of the state
of Washington.

l>. M. Snyder, the father of Sheridan
claim neai Republic, speaks hopefully of
the outlook there. A number of claims
are being developed, but the most work-
is being done under his direction. He
was the discoverer of the mines iu that
camp and takes a pardonable pride iu being the first of thc owners to develop the
mines by sinking a shaft.   He said:
"When 1 began work on the Zella M.
tlie rich pjy.-treak was only 14 inches in
•width, but at the depth of*70 feet it has
increased to a width of .'10 inches, and it is
even richer than it was a few feet below
tlie surface. When I sent the ore to my
partner to be assayed they had only the
richer parts of it assayed, and I remained
iu ignorance of the value of t'he other portions of the ore body until a few days
since, nud have thrown it away as waste.
I shall now save ail of the ore, as I have
learned its value, and, while some of it is
not rich enough to ship, it will pay a
handsome profit to concentrate and ship
the concentrates. A few days ago 1 had
five assays made, two of w'hich were from
the refuse that I have been throwing
on tlie. dump. One showed a value of $8.40
ill silver and $2.00 in gold, and the other
carried $0 in silver and $1.03 in gold. The
Other three were from medium to high
grade oie. and you can see by the assay-
er's certificate that there are not many
mines that can make so good a showing.''
Arrangements have been perfected to
begin active development work on the Polar Star in Sheridan camp. The work
will be done on Polar Star Nos. 1 and 2.
'l'he ledge lies several hundred feet west
of and parallel lo the Zella M. and south
of the Polar Star No. 3, upon which a considerable amount of work lias been done
and some line quartz obtained. It is undoubtedly on the same ledge as the American Flag which is regarded as one of the
coming mines of Lhat camp. The property
ii exceedingly well situated for working,
as it can be worked by tunnel or shaft
and there is plenty of timber and water
for milling purposes within a half miles
of the proposed shaft. The ledge crops out
ut Interval!- of a few bundled feet f r n
ly a mile.
Output   uf   Pierce   District".
Since there is a renewal of operations on
placer and quartz mining in tlie Pierce
district, Idaho, there is much speculation
as to thc gold output of the camp for the
year. Last season it was estimated that
about $lf>0,000 was shipped from the district, while on this season's output the
date is estimated at from $00,000 to $80,-
000. Regarding this, A. AL Ellis, the owner of valuable property in the district,
said: "It is a difficult matter to figure
on, because the gold dust is shipped to
di.Terent points, to Spokane, Boise, Salt
Lake City antl San Francisco, to business
houses nnd other places. Then the Chinese who number about 100, are shrewd
miners and never tcLl what their earnings
are, but I think that the total will be
above the $00,000 mark. There should be
a law requiring every man who ships dust
to register it so that tlie public could keep
posted on the progress of the different
camps. As it is, we can only estimate
from our personal knowledge of the different clean tips what is being done," During the sununer when there was plenty
of water it was estimated that the gold
shipments from the eamp would reach
$4000 weekly.
Claims   lu   Keno   Camp.
W. IL Oakes has returned from the
south half of the Colville reservation
where he has been to see some mining
property in which he is interested with
Henry Gardner and Arthur Curry.
Mr. Oakes says: "The claims are in
Keno camp, about 20 miles from Keller
and three miles east of the San Poil,
where we have a group of nine claims.
The principal work has been done on the
Pappoose und so far it has been most satisfactory. The tunnel is now in about 23
feet, where it taps the ledge about 20 below the surface. The ore is red carbonate, carrying gold, silver, lead and a small
percentage of copper. The assays which
have been made if an indication of worth
make the Pappoose a vuluable property.
"The entire country in tliat vicinity has
been located and many valuable finds
have been made. One property has been
bonded for $00,000 and another for $20,-
000. There is considerable excitement and
mining experts are in evidence. A number of reports are to the effect that Keno
camp is the richest yet found on the reservation.*'

IlredftfiiK   tlie   Vukon.
Dredging for gold ou the Yukon river
and its larger branches has so far proven
a  failure.    Many  thousand dollars have
been invested in one dredging scheme and
another, but no apparatus has yet been
found that will save tlie Hour gold of the
river beds in quautitie, that pay.   Several
*   * I mama*'c
steamers fitted with elaborate machinery
for dredging have tried all the rivers from
Koyukuk to thc Hoolilinqua. Tlie result
hus been practically the same. In all of
the river burs Hour gold was found, but
the machinery on the ".learners would not
save it. The Hootalinqua and Ixnvia rivers have been worked to a greater extent
than the brunches lower down. Some of
llie companies still have hopes of making
the dredging proposition pay after more
experiment, but tlie outlook is poor.

It developed that the. Grayson board of

brought immediately to prevent any disposition of the judgment, money on the
ground that it should be paid info lhe

considerable complaint regarding the sn'rvice
between Mur.'iiH and Pentieton, nnd especially
between Greeuwno:! aud (Jrand Forks, ho w.i-t
Instructed by the department at Ottawa, to
make an invcHtlgntlouand us"ortain if possible,
the cause of complaint and wherein it lies* On
his way over he Inspected the various offices
betweeu this city and Pentieton aud reports
that lu the main lie found them nil in a fair
coudition. He spent the larger portion of the
day Friday Inquiring lu to th/'big kick" that
has been made during the past year by the
Boundary Creek Times, against Deputy Postmaster Petrie, and after a thorough investigation of ull the facts lu the case, arrived at the
conclusion, thc fault is not so much with Mr.
Petrie, as it is with the postal department tn
not providing the Grand ForkB otllce with a
night man, as thc busluess of thc office -here is
entirely to large for one person to handlo satisfactorily. The Rowland and Spokane «qpci!s arrives iu Grand Forks'all lhe way from to 10 to
12 o'clock at night and leaves for Greenwood,
Midway and other lioundary creek points at
8 o'clock the next morning, thus making it
necessary for the person in charge of thc otllce
here, ln order to give a satisfactory service to
the towns west of us, to remnlu in the oillce 24
hours out of every 21. Asa result of his investigation he will recommend tbat a night
man be placed in tho office here.
Mr. McLeod will also recommend that Bossburg be made an exchange office instead of
Marcus, as it wiil shorten the lime of the mall
reaching here between twa and three hours
find make a difference of twenty-four to Greenwood, Anaconda and Mid wav between those
point and Rowland and Spokane. A further
recommendation will be made that hereafter
all mails from Victoria, Vancouver aud coast
point for the Boundary country __ eome by
Spokane instead of Pentieton aud that Midway,
Anaconda uud Greenwood mail for coast points

One of the Biggest Real Estate Transactions Ever Made In Southern British Columbia
Look Out For Them.
Bogus Time checks have male their appearance along the line of construct*
tion of the railway between this
city and Robson. Last week Paymaster
Woodman, at Brooklyn, says the Cascade
Record, was presented with several spurious
time checks, aud were of course thrown out
at ouce. They had beeu cut.hed Ly merchants of Brooklyn,niul were drawn with the
signature of Pat Welch, per McAlpin, his
time keeper. The work is said to have been
very coarse, but being dated late in September, there is no doubt but the forger has
made himself scarce long before his work
came to the surface. The checks were all
under $30 in amount.

claim for $23.75 for labor performed by plaintiff
for defendant, wus postponed until the 26th
J. H. Harris vs Jos. McDonald this was a
$30.50 claim for wages, the def*ndent being a
railway,'contractor. This case was settled by
tho defendant paying the amount ol the claim
and costs, Solicitor Earnest Miller appeared
for the plain Uff.

Monday night thc clothes line of Provincial
Constable Dinsmore was stripped and a number of other small robberies have beeu reported

Probably one of the largest real estate deals
everconsummatcil In Southeru|Brltish|Columc:a
was closed in this city today whereby the original townsite of the city of Grand Forks, the
North Addition, containing snme '200 actcs and
adjoining the original townsite on the e.ist; the
Ruckles' Addition, of 60 acres, just south of
theeity and adjoining thc town on the south;
thoKait Addition, adjoining the city limits on
thc east and across the North Fork, and I32
acres of unplatted and owned by John A.
Manly in thu Incorporated lira Its of the city
between the original townsite and Peter
T. McCallum's place west of the city, becomes
the propeity of an eastern S. nd'eute, represented by Richard Armstrong and J. B.;VeArthur,
Q. 0. president of tic Rossland board of trade.
While the amount involved segregates
$$4,000 It was a strictly cash transaction and the
pajiers have nil been signed and tbe money
paid, so there Is no possible chance for a "fluk'-
In the deal.
The purchase of the Grand Forka townsite
and over 400 acres of land adjoining the cily by
Messrs. Armstrong, McArlhur aud associates
means that Grand Forks is to be made tbe
commercial and mining centre and distributing point of the vast territory between Robson
and Pentieton, and that at no distant day.
Mr. Armstrong Informs us that his company
has a reserve fund of $200,000 which (hfiy propose to expend in the next l'i months in Graud
Forks and vicinity. Thc most liberal concessions will be msde lo nil classes of manufactories desiring to establish here. A large number
of residences will be at once erected so that tbe
new comers will not be without a place to live;
several business blocks are to he put up at once,
us well us un opera house. In the spring a
(20,000 hotel will be built, ftirnirhed and
fitted up in the most modern style, with a view
of matting it the headquarters of thu many
mining operators who are sure to flock Into
this district iu tbe coming sea-on seeking investments
Thecompany will also do a general loan, investment and promoting business, buy and
sell bonds, loan money on real estate, build
houses and sell them ou thc Installm- nt plan,
etc., etc. While the head office of the company
will be in Grand Forks they expect to extend
their operations to all parts of the district, in
the future of which they have the utmost
The Minek has known of this deal for some
time but was not in a position to make it public, until all the details had been satisfactorily
arranged Now that it has been finally consummated lit every resident of theeity rejoice, let
by-goncs be by-gores' nnd nil Jjoin bands
together       in making     Grand        Forks
the greatest mining and commercial centre in
Southern British Columbia. We h.wo the location, we have the natural advantage, and we
now have people with plenty of capital behind

New York, Nov. 15.—A special to thc
Herald from Madrid says:
.Nearly all thc heads of thc diplomatic
corps have culled on thc ministry for foreign affairs to inquire what importance is
to be attached to the visit of the German
emperor. The government has made light
of the nutter and it haa further intimated that it expects, aa an inevitable out-
come of events, being forced to relinquish
tho sovereignty of Spain in thc Philippines.
The visit of Kinperor "William has excited the greatest interest in England and
Franco and Uhe representatives of both
equntrice have been particularly eager, under Instructions from their government-,
in making for detail*,. They lmve been
assured that the visit here of the Spanish
ambassa'dor In Berlin is purely casual and
that under the circumstances it is nothing less than natural.
'l'he more staid portion of the political
world does not attach much importance
to the imperial visit ami looks ujn>n it as
perhaps merely to arouxe hopes which can
not be realized.
It remains, however, at the present moment, a matter of political record that
there exists n sentiineni here that
France «»f late has been of snull utility to
Spain in spite of her assurance of friendship, and perhaps the j'hilippines clause
of the protocol has much to do 'villi the
origin of this sentiment.
The queen regent is credited with a desire to seek assistance from more northern empires, and if true, she would now
prefer to be allied with the triple alliance
than wiLh the Fraueo-lJiissian combine,

Washington, Nov. 14.—The official report to the navy department of the finding
of the Alalia Teresa was concentrated in
the following cablegram received from
Commander Craven of the wrecking tug
Potomac, which had been ordered to Cat
island from Santiago, Nassau, November
''To the Secretary of thc Navy, Washington Potomac arrived. Maria Teresa
near Bird point, Cat island, one mile off
shore in two fathoms of water. Tide rising and falling inside. Temporary deck
broken up, movable articles removed by
natives. The Vulcan not seen. The natives at work since Saturday."
The Potomac was ordered at once back
to Cat island, with instructions to Commander Craven to take possession of the
Alaria Teresa and drive oil' the natives
who are looting the ship. Jle replied by
cable that he would leave immediately
and would arrive at the wreck in tlie
morning. The fact that the Teresa, a
vessel drawing 2j feet of water and waterlogged as she was when abandoned Is
probably drawing nearly 30 feet, has been
driven iu 12 feet of water is regarded bv
naval oiliccrs as evidence of thc great
strength of the storm whieh caused her
crew to leave hcr.

Thc death of a student by starvation is
reporled from Trinity college. Tiie young
man, whose name was James Whiting Allen, and whose home was in Kichficld
Springs, N. Y,, was too poor to live properly and slyly cooked what little food he
could buy in his own room. He was in
ihe habit of gelling up at 5 o'clock in
the morning and studying on an empty
stomach, a thing that has been done by
ounfless other students, but in their case*
a good meal generally followed and there
was no continued sapping of the vitality
day afler day. It is recorded that Allen
was of the most cheery disposition and
was well liked hy his fellow students, as
was shown by his election to be historian
of tho freshman class. His apjicarance
lately caused some questioning, but he answered that he was all right and not until he was actually sick from congestion
of thc brain, brought on, as the physicians
say, by overwork and lack of proper nourishment, were his poor circumstances
known. It is difficult to believe that a
student could starve to death in these
days, and this incident suggests that it
would Iw well for the authorities to keep
a closer watch on the daily lives of students, especially the very poor ones.
Many young men, especially some found
in lhe western colleges, sacrifice much for
the beneiit~of an education, living cheaply and permanently impairing their
health. In many instances the college authorities interfere, but even- then many
cases escape notice. It is recollected tliat
a clergyman discovered two students at
one of the Michigan institutions a few
years ago, who had got through the entire year, cooking in the'ir rooms and
paying all expenses at about $120 apiece.

Two grent meteoric displays are promised for this month. Tho first of these is
promised for thc 13th. It will result from
tlie lirst meeting of the advancing columns of the great Leonid meteors, wliich
envelop tbe earth in llery spectacles onee
in every 33J years. The main mass of
these meteors is due in November, 1800,
but, since tlieir array extends over a
length of at least 2,00o|o!l0,000 miles, they
require not less than three years to pass
the place where tlieir orbit intersects that
of the eartli. •
'The. other great shower occurs on the
night of November 27, a»d will be caused

not, in fact, scattered debris of that comet itself.

London* I-im-nn Comment.
London, Nov. 15.—The I,ondon papers comment editorially upon the peace
conference crisis and the American naval
preparations, reiterating tlieir conviction of tho hopelessness of Spanish opposition, nnd recognizing tliat the United

especially after the elections, but complete anneation, and that if Spain continue obstinate the l'nited States must
send a licet to Europe, an action which
no power but Great Britain would welcome though none would bc likely to interfere in Spain's behalf.
