The Outlook lit Florence, Iilnho—
In MndlHou County, Montana—
■ liu.   I'aliiMi- Momitiiln Tunnel,
Fifteen feet of ore, averaging $308 per
ton in gold. That i* Hie latest report from
the Republic mine in Kmeku district, on
the Colville reservation.
The jmst week's developments in this
remarkable property have heen the sensation of the Spokane milling world. Winn I
lhe news leaked out that the rlcli ore i
chute in tunnel Nb, 2 had widened to nine j
feci, experienced and conservative mining
men were startled. Two days later came
news that lhe ore body had widened to 12
feel. The last report of 1"» feet of ore going $308 per ton boa fairly token the
breath of the mining community. Mining
men of long experience and careful statements agree that fur tlie deyelopment done
nothing like it has ever hefore been, discovered in America. "Untie in its early
days had no mine like the Republic/' said
a mining man. "('ripple Creek has no sueh
ore body. It is now only a question of
depth. Jf these vakies go down, tlie lie-
public mine alone will add immeasurably
to the wealth and population of Spokane."
But with nil this remarkable wealth,
Republic camp is handicapped. Jl ean not
get sufficient lumber for building purposes, and while the Republic has its own
sawmill, it ean not sell lumber to other
mines. Rough lumber is selling there for
from $50 to $00 per thousand, nnd it is
bard to get at that. It is brought in from
llnli-.li Columbia.
In   tlie   Florence  Cninp.
The Poorman mine is showing better
ore than ever before is the report from the
Florence camp, in Idaho. The long tunnel
is in over 500 feet and shows four feet of
ore, carrying high values in gold and silver. A stope is being opened, showing
better ore than any yet encountered on
the upper level. A steam hoist and slump
mill have arrived at Lewiston and will be
erected, as soon as the roads are in shape
for hauling. The Poorman was the first
property lo attract attention of capital to
Florence, and it promises lo sustain its
reputation os n rich properly. The operators of the What Cheer mine have been
encouraged by finding 42 inches of choice
- ore in the tunnel, about 70 feet from its
mouth, where they thought tbey only bad
two feet. The lower drift on the Mikado
is in 40 feet and the ore body is showing
improvement. Negotiations arc on for
tlie purchase of the Empire. The property
is in fine condition and there is little wonder that it proves an attraction to investors. An important strike, one of the most
important of tbe winter, bas been made
on the Coupon, whieh is an extension of
tlie Banner on the west. A solid ore body
Hi) inches in width has been encountered
in thc tunnel. Tbe ore is similar to that
produced by the famous Banner mine, and
the ore body shows indications of widening with depth. Tbe tunnel is in over 200
feet, and day and night shifts are employed. Two feet of rich ore have beeu
encountered in tbe tunnel on the Doubtful, which is being operated by Frank
Hunt. Tho quartz is decomposed, and
the values are high with free gold showing plainly all through the paystreak.
In   Madison   County.   Montana.
The well known mining engineer of
Whitehall, C. 1), Wilkinson, is busily engaged, in perfecting arrangements for-the
development of a group of mines on tfie
left fork of South Uoulder creek, in Madison county, Montana, which lie secured
•last fall for Minnesota capitalists. The
properties from nn nltitudiual standpoint
rank among the highest in the slate, being over 0200 feet above sea level, on the
famous old Hollow Top mountain, the
loftiest peak of tbc Tobacco Hoot range.
Despite their height, all of the claims arc
easily accessible by good wagon road and
trail, being distant but seven miles from
Mammoth and the mouth of Main Sotuh
Boulder canyon. Under the direction of
Superintendent Dan Devine, work on the
group has been carried on throughout the
inter, the remarkable openness of which
has rendered this practicable. Mr. Wilkinson announces tbat there is now
enough to keep a 20-stamp mill busy and
that sueh a mill will bo in operation on
the property by Juno 1.
Ill    HohnIiiikI    Cfimp.
Recent reports from the Poorman mine,
in Itosshiml cninp, tire that the miners
have opened a four-foot ore body assaying
a little umre than $110 per ton in gold and
running well in copper.
l'he la* Rol has decided to connect tbe
Hlack Hear tunnel with the main workings of the mine for the double purpose of
ventilating the mine and providing adequate means of escape for tno men in ease
of underground accident, says the Ross*
land Miner. The connection will probably
be made at the 850-foot level in the shaft:
The present workings of the properties in
the neighborhood of the I-e Hoi would, if
slightly modified, form nu unrivaled system of escapes. At present the Lc KqiV.
east drift almost 'reaches thc Center Star's
main tunnel, nnd it would require but n
few feet of work to make tbe connection,
Thc Center Star's tunnels, besides haying
two exits of their own, connect with the
Iron Mask tunnel, which communicates
with the surface nnd also connects with
the War Eagle workings, which have half
n do/en means of exit. The Wnr Eagle
workings are also within a short distance
of the Poorman's drifts, and a connection
between the two lias already been discusH-
ed. If communication between the' two
were, thus established, it would be possible
to pass on from tbc War Eagle through
the Poorman and out through the Josie,
whieh already is connected with thc Poor-
In the Slocnn Dlntrlct.
About 50 men nre employed on. tbc Enterprise mine, in the Slocnn, on Ten Mile
creek, nnd the property is reported showing better thnn ever. The doal for tbc sale
of the property to nn English syndicate
still bangs fire, but those on the inside of
the matter still express confidence in the
deal being consummated.
There was no dividend declared by the
Whitewater mine in February, owing lo
the fact that returns on 75 cars of ore
shipped iu December and January were
not available.
Five feet of clear ore assaying as high
as $1700 has been found in the old workings of the Idaho mine.
Thc Ivanhoe mine is to have a three-
drill compressor,
■'aimer Mountain.
The Palmer Mountain Tunnel Company
announces that work will be resumed on
the big bore iu Loom is camp about April
J, and Unit nrrangemuts will have beeu
completed hy that time that will insure
steady work unlit the property is on a
paying basis. The recent strike iu lhe
tunnel, mid, in fact, the rich stringers all
along its course, have inspired the public
with confidence in the undertaking. Thc
company has elected olHcers for the nestling year as follows: Dr. X. Fred Esslg,
president] 1). M. Drumhellef, vice president; C. C- May, treasurer; F. IL Luce,
secretary; John Boyd, manager.
Struck   Ore   In    the   Klondike.
l'he report has reached Wallace, Idaho.
that ore had beeu struck in the tunnel on
the Klondike. The property lies just above
the Stemwinder and was stocked last summer, since when four or five men have
beon working steadily running a crosscut
tunnel. The reported striike has not ben
confirmed, but is considered very probable,
as the men working there have been looking for ore nny time for several weeks
past. The stock of the company is largely
owned in Wardner and almost nil of it
belongs to Coeur d'Alene people.
On  SprliiK Creek.
English capitalists have taken an option
at $05,000 on the Carbonates claim on
Spring creek, in Ainsworth mining district, R. C. Ferguson & Caldwell of Kaslo
are the vendors. The property has beeu
developed under the direction of Peter
Porter, and there nre several hundred feet
of tunnels opening up some fine ore bodies.
It is reported that a concentrator will be
creeled next spring.
Sale of n Montana  Mine.
The War Eagle mine, near Clancy, has
been sold to Michigan parties for $35,000,
E. S. Delnmaer of Detroit taking ovcr the
property for himself and associates. It is
the purpose to immediately put up a
steam hoist on the mine and sink the shaft
to a depth of 000 feet without a halt.

having beeu a Swiss guardsman, lirst
to Vancouver, then to tlio Sandwich
Islands, and llnally lo "Alia California," where he settled, built a farmhouse, gathered flocks aud bonis, got
into his employ skilled workmen, and
wns prosperous. He, however, wanted
one thing—a saw mill. Ho had been
compelled lo get his lumber at grent
labor and expense from lhe mountains,
far distant from his farms. So he
sent his millwright, James Wilson
Marshall, to Und a saw mill site. Marshall, who was a native of New Jersey, had Jollied Sillier In 18*15. lie was

a mill site made a untlon rich, lilled

In one of theso--lo be exact, on Jan.
84, 1848—he mude Ills greut discovery.
Watching the lull race of thc new mill
ho noticed bright yellow particles
mingled With the dust whieh hnd been
washed out by Ihe recent ruins. At
lirst he attached llttlo Importance to it,
but upon examination, seeing more mid

the thought occurred to hlm tlmt It

his camp for a Un plate, and lu this
washed out some of the dirt. He found
a few grains of cleat dust and went off
to meditate, He suid something io ins
companions to the effect that perhaps
he might Hnd n gold inlue. To which
they replied with smiles: "Guess not;
uo such luck." But ho could not put
the Idea out of his mind. The next day
he made a closer examination of the
washed-up soil, and found a nugget,
but was not yet sure that It w.is gold.
He weighed it In his hnnd. He bit It.
He hammered It between stones. Surely It must be gold. And so It was, and
so the great secret of the Sierra stood
He found more of Ihe metal, an.l
then mounted his horse and hastened
baelt to Sutler, to whom he told lho
story. A private examination by Hie
partners up the river disclosed gold
along Its course, and In the tributary
ravines and creeks.
Sutler regarded the discovery as a
misfortune. Without laborers his
extensive works must come to a stop,
presaging ruin. Gladly would he ha\ e
shut the knowledge from the world,
for a time at least. With the men at
the mill the best he could do wns to
make them promise to continue their
fused lo mnko nny promises as lo a
grunt of land.
The upshot wns lhat gold seekers began to pour lu about Caloina und the
saw mill from Francisco and Monterey,
und Suiter hurl llnally to abandon most
of his Industrial enterprises, The stories of those days would fill volumes,
and It only remains to chronicle the

the treasure, but did not prolit by it.

cause lhe gold fever had absorbed ull
of the labor, nud no hands oould be gotten to do work oilier lliun gold mining.
Neliher he nor Marshall succeeded in
doing much nt milling, nud so they
went from bud to worse.
Marshall wns driven nwny from Onlo*
ma by the tights between the Indians
and the liirushlng gold seekers. When
he returned several years afterward
he wns bankrupt. He did nil sorts of
things for eight years, and In 18B7 returned to his old home mid made a living by sawing wood, making gardens,
and cleaning wells. Subsequently he
received a small pension from the
state, hut died in 1885 in poverty nt the
nge of 73 years. Sutter met almost us
bud a fate. He died almost In want,
nnd wns nt one time threatened with
dreams of the almshouse.

were no railroads and uo oilier sort of
roads to the Golden Gate in those
years, but nil that then were In the

From February; 1S4S, to Mny, 1848,
more thnn 300 Square-rigged vessels
were tying In the harbors stranded nnd
disabled for want of sailors, the crews
having deserted to go to the gold region.
At this time the average yield of gold
for each loan engaged wus fur greater j
than In any subsequent year, yet the j

15,000 souls were added to
tbe population of San Francisco,
nnd during the last six mouths
of that year came 1M.000 more.
When the returns were made to
the United Slates authorities In
1881, the town contained 371 Individuals, and very few more resided
In It up lo the discovery of gold nt Sutler's Mill, Like Ihe magic seed of the
Indian Juggler, which grew, blossomed nnd bore fruit before the eyes of the
spectators, San Francisco seemed lo
accomplish In a day the growth of half
a century. The people came from every Stale In the Union and every land
under the sun. They lived ln board
shanties, and in canvas tents pitched
■In the midst of suud and mud. They
slept ln rude cot.s, on boards, tables,
counters, floors, trucks In the open nlr;
some hud horse blankets, others only
it coveting of Ileus.
The employments of the newcomers
were as varied us their nationalities.
They worked nn anything and everything. Common laborers received $10
per day uml ordinary mechanics $20.
Five dollars a tiny wus about the smallest stipend paid even lo boys. A pick
and n shovel were worth $10; a tin pun
or wooden bowl $5, and a butcher's
knife $80. Lumber rose to $5(10 per
1,(1(10 feet. Wheat (lour und suit pork
sold nt $400 a barrel; a small lonf of
bread wns BO cents, nnd a hard-boiled
egg $1. You paid $3 Or gei Into the circus, and $55 for a private box. Ordinary course boots cost $41) a pair; a
stout pair was worth $100. When a
shirt became dirty the wearer threw ii
away. Washing cost $15 a dozen In
Rents were monstrous. Three thou
sand dollars a mouth was paid in advance for a store hurriedly built of
rough boards; nnd a small room on lhe
second floor used ns a lawyer's oflice
rented for $1,000 n mouth. Lodging wus
equally extravagant, A bedroom In a
hotel costing $250 n month, nnd a sleeping berth or "bunk," one of fifty lu lhe
snine apartment, $0 a week.
In the social life of Snn Francisco nt
Hint period Hie gamblers cut the widest
swath, They constituted a controlling
class, with whom wns nil Hi'.' physical,
moral and financial force. Nearly everybody gambled and the stakes wore
sometimes enormous. As high ns $20,-
000, It is said, have been risked ujkju a
card. Five thousand, three thousand
and one thousuud were repeatedly ventured.
Sunday was a "wide-open'' day lu
California In 1840. It was looked upon
only ns a dny for trading, recreation,
spreelng, business meetings and preparation for the business of the ensuing
week. It wus very common to sec large
curds hung up In boarding-houses uml
business places like Ibis: "All bills pnid
up here on Sundny." Thnt was the day
for miners to get their blacksmith
work done and lay In their supply of
provisions for the week; the duy for
holding public meetings for the enactment of other municipal business.

On Friday ol last week Braden gave
notice in the legislature of his intention
to introduce a clause for incorporation
into thc mineral act making it necessary
for aliens to declare their intention oi
becoming citizens before being allowed tc obtain u free miners' certificate.
it will be rem.-mbered that a similar bill
was introduced at thc 'last session oi tbe
legislature, but was defeated. There is
a possible chance of the measure cai-
rying this time, on account of ihe aggravating policy oi the United Stales in
regard to Yukon matters and a few
other border questions. It is to bo regretted that a tree and open country
like liritish Columbia should be compelled to retaliation in order to obtain
better treatment,
If this question was left to the residents of ihe mining district to decide,
Mr. Braden's motion would be overwhelmingly defeated. Should the
clause become a law there is little doubt

Ifbe Governments Railway and Redistribution Policy, as Given by
Mr. Turner.
Mr. Chas Hay of Upper Grand Forks,
^returned borne last Saturday via tho
JPenticton stage from a two weeks' trip
^o Vancouves where he went on private
business. On his way there he stopped
over two or three (J-^ys in Victoria and
during his stay in that city he had an
interview with a number of the opposition members, also with Premier Turner,
relative to thc chances of a railway being built through the boundary country
thia year. In speaking of the trip Mr.
Hay said:
"Knowing that there was a conflict of
opinion between thc opposition and (he
government, the opposition advocating
The government Bhould build and own
lhe lines of railway through the province
while the government policy was to aid
the building of railways by granting
Subsidies, and feraring tbat in consequence of the different views being held
in the legislature the construction of a
railway through the Boundary creek
country this year might again be blocked, the same as was the case last year
in the legislative assembly. I stopped
a couple of days in yictpria on my way
to Vancouver, and through the kindness of Mr. Graham, M. P., from tbis
district, arranged for a meeting with the
ir-embers of the opposition in the parlors of the' Drieard hotel. At this conference I urged upon them' tbe great
necessity ot a railway through the Kettle river valley and Boundary district,
and expressed a wish that they should
concur in any reasonable policy brought
'down by th'egovernsncrit for tlie construction of a line through this section
at an early date. The members present
listened with very kindly and careful
Attention, and signified their intention
of supporting any measure to insure the
construction of 8 railway the present
season between Pentieton and Kobson,
"A meeting was thep aj-;anged for
with Mr, Turner foi an interview. Fortunately Mr. Wood, the Mayor of Greenwood arrived in tbe city in time to take
-part in this meeting and in company
With Mr. Jaizjes Addison of Grand f'Vks,
Mr. Wood and myself waited on Premier
Turner and discussed In ly tbe railway
situation. Mr. Turij'er treated the dele"
gation with great cordlalty, and assured
us that all arrangements were completed 'or the construction' of a line froir*
Penficton to the Columbia river, and
that work on the line would commence
almost immediately, and not later that)
two months from diiie- that the road
jyould be completed within eighteen
months. Mr, Turner also stated that
£hore would be no land grant subij.dy
given, but a cash bmiuu ot $i ooo a mile
would begranled the company lor the
fvbole lenght of the line."
"On being asked if the C. P. R. was
to build tbe lhe, he smiled and replied
that lor the present we v/ill call it the
Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern, but that
Mr Mann ha-i left that morning to make
preparations for commencing construction tvork both rt Pentieton and Robson
"The delegation askod the Premier,
if it was not entirely against the rules of
tbe government, if he would inform them
How the redistribution bill would effect
the district of East Yale. In reply be
said that there would be a few additional
members added to the house, Kootenay
and East Yale would each have one.
The piesent electoral district qf the
latter would be divided into separate
constituencies by a line running from
ea-t to west at or near Pentieton,
,"fn relation to the political situation
the action of the present legislature will
pave considerable of a* bearing on the
matter. The government, by it? policy
bf aidiug the construction of a railway
Troin the Columbia river to the coast has
greatly increased its chances in ■*,<•

tending from Gobson to Rossland, tor
$800,000. Along with this purchase the
company has acquired the smelter at
Trail creek and about 270,000 acres of
land in that vicinity.
Dr. Milue Says the Work of Construction
Will Soon Begin.
Tne following special to the Rossland
Miner, of the 8th inst., will be ot interest to the roaders of the Miner; as
its hows clearly what tbe citizens of Vancouver and Victoria are doing to defeat
the granting of a charter to the Ketile
River Valley railway.
The actual work of construction or the
Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern railway
will commence on April 1st, if not earlier.
This positive slate-merit was made by Dr.
G. L. Milne, one of ihe promoters of the
railway. He said ihe date on which
wo.-k would be commenced had not been
definitely decided, but it would be very
shortly. Work will commence at Pentieton and Chilliwack simultaneously,
these two poinrs being easy of access lor
supplies. As Dr. Milne put it. "Wc
will soon show the people of tbo Bonn
dary Creek country that v/e intend to
immediately give tbem the railway facilities that tbey have been clamoring for."
Tbe assurances that the company has
received Irom both the dominion arid
provincial governments justify them,
Dr. Milne says, in immediately ' commencing the work of construction. Interrogating the doctor further as to the
effect bf tbe chirter asked by Corbin on
.'the coast line, he replied:   '*ffaroad is
The Chances of Mr. Corbin's
Charter Good.

Boundary Country this Year.
Thc British Columbia Smelting and
Refining company last woek transferred
the smelter at Trail to the C. P. R.
company. The transfer of tbe C. & W.
railway is expected to occur most any
time uow. Parties who claim to know
whereof they speak af e authority for the
statement that it is the inteniion of the
p. P. li. to commence work on the extension of that road fiom Trail to Pentieton beforo the first of May ip. order
to control the output of the Boundary
country lor the Trajl smelter. In this
connection the following Montreal dispatch will be of interest to the readers
of the Minek:
" MoNTitEAi., Q ie„ March 2—The G»-
sette, commenting editorially on the
Canadian Pacific's annual statement,
finishes asfullows: "The Canadian Pacific Railway conlpmy is only 18 years
old. When its project tyas published
the people thqught it could never be executed. The system comprises 7,676
miles of road, o -ned and operated, ami

The Canadian' Pa -ilic's, annual report
announces that the Draw's Nest Pass
line will be completed to Kootenay lake
before the end of August. Temporary
connection will be made at Nelson by a
ijrain terry, whereby a through train service will b: established pending a"completion of the railway along the shore of
the I ke to that point, a distance of 60
Themuiimum gradients through the
Rocky and Selkirk ranges Is only one

ualf o[ any oilier railway crossing eitbor
Tne company also announces that it
pill be necessary for it to'move westward from the Columbia riverat Robson,
fhe western end of the C, P. R. line, so
psto rearch Boupdary creek district, 100
rui'es distant, during tbo present yoar.
and the authority will be asked to make
fhe expenditure necessary for this.
The company also announces the pur-
chgsp of th*: Columbia £  Western, ex-
allowed to enter our province at the
boundary, running through the Kettle
River district, it will materially affect
and cripple the carrying trade of our
line, as well as divert our trade to American cities, Spokane, Seattle and Tacoma in particular. I am assured, however, that tlje government and members
of the house of commons will reject such
a scheme. I cannot see how they can
entertain such a proposition, as our line
is an all-Canadian line, opening up the
country, bringing our own cities in npar
connection with tbe mining regions of
Kootenay, as well as making the connecting link of the Crow's Nest and
other railways terminating on the Co-
umbia river.
"Have steps been taken to oppose the
granting of a charter to Corbin?" "Yes,'1
replied the doctor. "The boards of trade
of Victoria, Vancouver, New Westminster, Nelson and other town,s sent their
protests ou to Ottawa, and 1 do not fear
the outcome, as tbe sentiment of 'Canada for Canadians' is tbe watch-word all
al ong the line."

The case was up before Police Magis-

When the moving of the church from

However, Through the Opposition of
Messrs. M.ixwei*,  Alclnnes
and Coast Cities.
_ Ottawa, March 1, 1898 —[Special
Correspondence.]-—The indications at
present are tiat tire Kettle River Valley
railway charter wiil be granted, provrd
ed that tbe II. C. members wil pull to- j
gelher. A lar,-e number of tlu* members from Ontario, the Northwest territories and the pastern provinces are
favorable to British Columbia, and will-',
ing lo help ti in any way they can, ami il
Ibe people themselves in British Colum-1
bia, or rather their representative would
have enough loyally to t ie province to spetk together. Mix veil
and Mclnnis are so far opposed tothis, and I leg-c-t to say
tbut the Vancouver board of trade has
passed a resolution asking the govern-
ment not to gram this charter, bul to
grant aid to a road from the Corumbia
river through to the coast. Now, as
there is not the slightest possibility of
the government granting aid 10 such a
railway for the next live years, you can
readily see that this is a contemplable
piece of business on the part of the Vancouver people in trying to prevent the
Boundary people from getting a railway
because it don't run trnrn theirtown. It
is clear to the mind of eyery one wbo
knows anything about the situation that
the Kettle River Valley railway is the
only railway that will g.ve competition
to the 0. P. R., 80 if wc can get that
line built into thp Boundary country
then the V. V. &E road, when it is
completed would have cunne.tions, besides the C P. R., with three
transcontinental lines, viz, Northern Pacific, Union Pacific and the
Great Northern. If this charier
is blocked tbis season it will be
solely because Mar-veil and Mclnnis, on
the command of the Victoria and Vancouver people, and the V. V. & E,
charter mongers, will do so. Y„u can
well understand tbat the eastern members of parliament here will not be inclined to support it, if the members
from British Columbia and the leading
centres there fight it. It appears to me
rliat the Boundary country is being
cursr-d by a lot of pin-heads in Victoria
and Vancouver, who arrogate to them
the idea that all British Columbia is
composed of two place , Victoria and
Vancouver, and anything that has not I
us origin or its destination there should
be clubbed.
Mr. Richard Armstrong, Grand Forks
representative, returned from Toronto,
where ho has been for the past wei.lt
hobnobbing with members from tbat
Oving to the Ontario election the
hoitic has adjjurned for a week, consequently it yvill be thc latter part of
this week before the railway committee
will meet. Between fifteen anil twenty
members from Ontario and thc east who
are mo.-nbeis of lire railway committee
have promised io speak in Tavor of tbe
granting cf a charter to the Kettle River
Valley road.
It will be some time toward the latter
part of the month before it is known
whether or not that the charter is granted.

H, A. S.'ieads received the following

Bradstreet'ssaysi February bunk clearances, as reported In Bradstrcct's, point
to an immense volume of business done
in the country during the past, month. The
total clearances, though naturally smaller
thun January's record in totals, are evidently so only because nf February being
n short month. Tlie total clearances,
though naturally smaller Hum January's
records in totals, wore evidently so only
because of u holiday still further curtailing tho time available for business transactions, for the renson thnt tho average
duily clearances were larger than those

Inmate of an English Workhouse Die*
froni Overeating;.
Every free-born Englishman comes
Into the world with tho Inalienable
right to n seat at the table and a bed
in the palatial English workhouse. It
has boon my good fortune during a
Journalistic career uow closo on five
und twenty years to visit and describe
for various publications over ono hundred British cities nnd towus. Iu nearly every case attention has been called
to the handsome buildings set apart
for the paupers, or, In colloquial English, "the 'ouso." Hack in the good old
days of Queen Elizabeth the principle
was made a law Unit no English mall
or woman should starve, and that, If
unable to secure a living for themselves, the poor and the indigent and
the Incapable must be cni-isl for by
the state. So (Irmly has the Idea taken
possession of the English mind tliart
the poorer class, the old, aud even those
lu thc prime of life, talk wllh complaisance of ending their days in "the
'ouse." Thoy look upon It very much
as our old people might regard going
to a home for Invalids or the old, and,
Indeed, In many of the Knglish workhouses thoy are cared for us well as ln
sueh Institutions ns our old Indies'
homos, etc. The other week, when in
Hideford, I was taken to the workhouse, Situated on a beautiful hill overlooking the broad river und famous
bridge. For the moment 1 could hardly
believe my eyes. It looked for nil the
world like a Japanese palace. It was
built much ns they build in Japan,
with plaster between the massive wooden beams, pointed gable roof, old-fashioned casement windows, vines spreading their beautiful green tendrils In
all directions, and In front a large variety of dark shrubs aud just such stunted shrubs as one sees In Jn pan—odd
Shaped and picturesque. And here lhe

Quito n number of eases of death
from overfeeding In the Bldeford workhouse occurred during my stay in England, nud the Hackney coroner held
Inquests on no less than three cases
within a short time. Oliver Twist Is
evidently n buck number nowadays,
for at the coroner's inquiry into the
death of Hie latest victim of parochial
kindness, a man 70 years of ago, who
had lived lu tho Bethunl Green workhouse and acted lul assistant librarian,
the following dialogue ensued botween
the coroner nnd nn Inmate of the workhouse:
Merry pauper—Thursday afternoon
while we were having tea I saw the deceased, he was cutting some bread aud
butter, suddenly fall backward off the
bench ou which he was silting.
The coroner—You don't think the exertion of cutting bread and butter killed
Merry pauper—No, not likely. He hud
cut up a lot bofore that.
The coroner—They givo you plenty to
cat, then?
Merry pauper—Aye, thoy do that,
The doctor who was called 111 to see
the deceased testified Unit death was
due to syncope, produced by an overloaded stomach,
The coroner—One may say that he
was killed by kindness?
Tbe doctor—It may or may not be
kindness to overload a man's stonnich.
The coroner—Well, It shows he did
not go short of food.
The doctor—Short! By no moans,
Why, they have nothing to do but eat,
drink and Bleep.
The Jury returned a verdict that deceased died from snycopo, the result
of an overloaded stomach, and that
such death was due to natural causes,
And ns t'hc jury gave the decision ,i
deep sepulchral voice In the back of
the court-room remarked;
"What a glorious death!"
The owner of the voice was a trill,
gaunt, hungry-looking Individual, who
had evidently mentally decided that
"the 'ouse" was not a bad placo to end
oue's days.—New York Mall and Express.
Cheap to Run Trolley Oars.
The cost of running a trolley enr a
mile ls found to vary greatly In ulfl'er-
eut places. A Brooklyn company gets
tlie best results, running a car one mile
for 80-100 ceuts. A Binghiunpton company does It for 114-100 cents. Cheap
coal and sound engineering seems to
explain the low cost In these places.
The annual reports of lhe railroad commissioners of New York and Massachusetts show that usually the cost Is niiii'h
iilgher. Of (he five companies operating over 5,0tm,000 car miles per yi-.tr
one obtains Its power at loss than 1 cent
a ear mile; three between 1 and 2 cents,
aud one betweeu 1! und 11 cents, Of 10
companies operating loss thau ","i0,H00
car miles per annum four obtained their
power ut less than 2 cents per car mile
under average conditions of load, track,
etc., six between il and II cents, live betweeu 3 nnd 4 cents, one between 4 and
(i cents and throe at more than fi cents.
Conditions vary greatly so thai a separate estimate of all Hems of cost must
be mude for each locality.
