1„ the Filipino*—The President li*
Pleased,   Imt   Setilla   Mure   Troop*
to   Manila.
New York, Sept 1!).—The following
dispatch bus been received at the Associated Press Olliee:
Manila, Sept. 19.—The Filipino government desires to inform the American
government nnd people that the many
rumors circulated regamlng the strained
relations between the Filipino mid American forces are bnse, malicious slanders oi
nn enemy of both parties; are without
truth and are circulated for tlie purpose
of prejudicing the appeal of tlie Filipinos
for release in.ii-a.ili.- oppression and cruelty of Spain.
Tlie relations of our people and yours
have been and will continue of tlie most
friendly nature, and we have withdrawn
oui* forces from tlie suburbs of Manila as
additional evidence of our. confidence in
the grant American republic.
Will Take No Chances.
Washington, Sept. II).—The Associated
Press dispatch conveying Aguinaldo's
niesstige to tlie American people was regarded Willi much interest ut the White
The president read the statement with
evident appreciation of its Importance,
but did not volunteer nny information as
to the attitude of the government.
Officials near him speak of the message
ns "a very Important document." While
, the officials do net care to discuss the
matter for publication, it was evident the
main source of tlieir satisfaction was tlie
internal evidence contained in tlie document that Aguinaldo had profited by tlie
warnings of the American commanders
and gracefully receded from the arrogant
attitude assumed by him just before .Merritt left Manila for 1'aiis.
[ri connection with tlie sending of fresh
troops to the Philippines, mention may be
made of the fact that the battleships
Iowa and Oregon are lo go to Manila as
quickly us possible, and mechanics ure
working night and day to get thcni ready
for the long voyage. Vessels of this kind
are needed to keep the Philippine insurgents in order and their assembling at
Manila in conjunction with the dispatch
of heavy reinforcements of troops for the
American land forces can not but be regarded ns significant.
In well informed circles here it is seen
the real purpose of thc president in making these pi-t'iaialiuiirt is t-j insure the
■peucc commissioners against any interference in the work of disposing of the
future of the Philippines aeeording tt
their best judgment. Not having disclosed his plans « respect to the islands
outside of Luzon, the seat of the capital
of the group, the president reserves for
thc American peace commissioners the
right lo dispose of the remainder of the
islands as they may deem best.
German)*-. Hnil Moves.
A long line of curious Incidents lo
whicli one of tlie great European powers
has been n party has beyond question
done much lo cause a feeling of uneasiness on the part of thc administration as
tending lo show a purpose to interfere in
our free nction in tlie Philippines, und
these have only been slightly diminished
by un apparently frank disclaimer of any
ulterior purpose, because tlie incidents
continue to occur quietly and in a manner calculated to nvoid attracting attention. Such for instance is the gathering
of naval vessels to the south of the Philippines, the only explanation of whicli is
a purpose of acquiring cither by seizure
or by some secret compact with the Spanish government, thc important island of
It i.s gathered that it is the purpose of
tlie president to prevent the alienation by
Spain of any of tlie Philippine group, and
tliese preparations, naval as well as military, are but a step toward the execution
of this purpose. With thc addition to tlie
licet of the two battleships, wc will have
a force only second to that of Great Britain in eastern waters, while on shore Otis
will have a more numerous army than
any Kuropean power save Russia.
A   Stiirtlliin  Theory.
London, Sept. 10.—David Christie
Murray publishes in a morning paper a
story regarding the Dreyfus all'air. The
buthrir vouches for the truth of the story
hut declares he can not disclose the source
from whieh he obtained his information.
Tlie article states in part that Dreyfus
was engaged us a spy in the employ of
a secret department of thc French army
against thoso Buspccted of trafficking
with Germany and other powers. His
zeal, so the story goes, led him to become
the victim of revenge on the part of
(.i.li.nel . Henry, Count Ksterhazy and
Col.,nel Paly du Chun, who themselves
wero concerned iu lhe treasonable practices.
Vienna, Sept. 10.—A rescript of the
emperor to the Count Von Tluinn lloheii-
slein, president of tlie Austrian council
of ministers, was published yesterday, expressing in eloquent and pathetic lan-
gunge the emperor's thnnks for the expressions of national sympathy with him
in his great bereavement. In Hie course
of the rescript, his majesty laments that
an enemy to all soeiul soeiety in blind
and purposeless hate, struck a heart
which knew not hate and beat only for
"Among tlie unmeasured grief by
which 1 nnd my house are stricken and
in tlie presence Of the unheard-of deed
which hus sent a shudder through the
whole civilized world, tlie voice of my
beloved people lirst brings balm to my
heart in affecting unison wilh the resound of universal lamentation for our
immeasurable loss, like a faithful echo
of all that moves my own soul. From
my deeply sorrowing heart, i thank ull
for this now pledge of devoted sympathy. If thc festive peals whieh should
huve greeted this year should remain
dumb, there yet remains to me the memory of innumerable proofs of loyalty and
deep sympathy, the most precious gift
which could have becn bestowed upon
"Our common grief weaves a new and
intimate bond between the throne and
the fatherland."
A New Order Ia Founded.
Another imperial rescript founds a new
order, and medals of St. Elizabeth, in
memory of the deceased, will beconferred
upon wjomen and girls meriting distinction iu the various avocations of life or
in special religious, humanitarian and
philanthropic work.
Tlie emperor is invested with the sole
right of conferring the order, which
comprises three degrees, with a grand
eross for the Urst and second classes,
bearing an enameled picture of SI. Elizabeth of Tliuringia.
The Urst recipient of the order wus
Countess Szcarpuy, who lias received an
autograph letter from the emperor conferring upon her the grnnd cross of the
order in recognition of her devoted services to the dead empress in her Inst moments.

MgConnellsville, Ohio, Sept 19.—A terrible Ure broke out in the business part
of this city this morning in tlie ware-
rooms owned by C. L. Barker. The warehouse was destroyed and much property
damaged, but by great efforts the court
house and adjoining buildings were saved.
As McConnellsville votes on waterworks today and Barker wns a leader of
the opposition Hie lire has caused quite
a sensation. Some claim that incendaries
are to blame.
Ten Six-Inch Cans Saved.
Washington, Sept. 10.—Captain
Crownlnshleld, who was acting as secretary of the navy, received a cablegram
from Commodore Watson at Guantanamo staling that the wreckers have recovered 10 six-inch guns from the Spanish llagship Maria Teresa and placed
thein on thc collier Leonidas. The commodore says that it is expected the Span
ish ship will ho floated.
Chicago, Sept. 10.— A special from
Washington says:
Tlie war department is now engaged in
milking plans for the occupation of Cuba
by United States forces. The preliminary
steps to this effect have already been
taken, and tlie plan of the campaign will
lie rapidly worked out. It has already
been decided to have a full army corps in
Cuba. The corps will be composed of
bolli regular and volunteer troops. It
was at Urst thought that the army of
occupation would be conqiosed entirely of
volunteers, but tlie war department considers it advisable lo have a few regiments of regulars included. This will give
Hie volunteer forces the benefit of the
regulars' experience, and in a very short
time they will become seasoned and experienced troops.
Just what troops will take part in the
occupation of Cuha has not yet been decided, but the splendid condition and situation for such an expedition of General
Lee's command, the Seventh army corps,
at Jacksonville, makes it seem probable
that a grent portion of tho volunteer
troops will be taken from tliat corps. If
this is done three Illinois regiments who
arc in Lee's command will be sent to
Cuba —the Second, Fourth and Ninth.
The army of occupation will be distributed over a greater portion of the island.
Garrisons will be established in most of
Hie larger towns, and will be maintained
until a definite Cuban policy is determined upon.
Tlie commissary and quartermaster's
departments are now perfecting plans for
the sending of supplies to Hie troops.
Enough ships nre not now on hand to accomplish this, but by Hie time that the
army of occupation is ready to move both
of thc supply departments of the army
will be abundantly equipped with transports to take food and clothing to Cuba.
Before linul plans for the occupation of
Cuba arc agreed upon, the war department will wait for thc report of the Cuban military commission.
Trying   to  Trick  Hunkers.
New York, Sept. 10.—A dispatch to the
Herald from Valparaiso says:
Argentina's circular note instructing her
representatives abroad to .deny thc rumors in connection with her differences
with Chile, und to state thut she is not
hostile to the general plan of arbitration
proposed by Chile, has not caused a cessation of thc preparations of Chile to
meet any emergency. Thc note is regarded as a trick designed to allure the bankers to place a new loan in Europe for
war purposes. As evidence of this, it is
pointed out that Argentina is pushing
her war preparations harder than ever, in
spite of such peaceful declarations.

New York, Sept. ID.—A dispatch from
Paris says:
Paris te quiet outwardly. There seems
to be a sense of relief because a revision
hai virtually been determined on. But
there te a great commotion among tlie
chiefs of tlie army. They undoubtedly
have the disposition, if not tlie courage,
to try to prevent a revision ut the eleventh
hour by a military coup d'etat.
M. Cavalgnac. who resigned lately as
minister of war and who has cast his lot
unreservedly with the army, is pointed to
as a possible dictator, but public sentiment will be u most effective bar against
sueh designs. It has veered around completely in favor of revision and justice,
which everywhere is recognized now except by a couplo of anti-Dreyfus organs.
Ksterhazy's promised confession is
awaited with the keenest curiosity,
though no one will believe a word he says
unless lie is supported by independent
Jules Terries, a leading member of the
French bar, comments upon the present
legal status of the Dreyfus.ease as follows:
"Judicially, thc ministerial decision to refer thc case to an examining committee of
three decides nothing iu the light of recent events. Tlie committee's findings
will determine whether there shall be a
revision or not. 'l'he decision is only Important particularly in that it reveals and
approves the sentiment of the country in
favor of a revision."
More than 50,000 Frenchmen belong to
the Legion of Honor. Thirty-two thousand of these are connected with the
army.   Tho rest are civilians.

Louisville, Sept. It).-Following is an
epitome of the yellow fever situation in
the south as it existed Saturday:
President Soucliin of the Louisiana
board of health reported a genuine case
of yellow fever in the city of New Or-
teaiis. Tho case is that of Mallory
Kennedy, son of Dr. T. S. Kennedy. The
patient is on tho road to recovery.
The board of health nas proclaimed a
quarantine against New Orleans. Freight
and passenger traffic will be carried on
under the regulations of tlie Atlantic
The state of Mississippi has also quur-
aniined  against  Xew  Orleans.
Inspector .uarrietson telegraphed the
Jackson health authorities as follows
from that city: "Many cases of yellow
fever here. Believe it will be oflieially
announced today or tonight."
The situation at Jackson is quiet. No
new eases were reported. About half
tue population remains in the city. Two
hew cases were reported at orwood and
ono at Taylor's. They are all doing well
ut both places, ihe health authorities
have declared an unconditional quarantine against New Orleans and issued orders to all Texas quarantine stations to
allow no passenger or freight trains to
enter tho state from New Orleans until
further orders.
Heiuiy to Leave.
San Juan de Puerto Kieo, Sept. 10.—
The final preparations for the embarkation of the Spanish troops are reported
to be complete, although the Americun
commissioners have not beon otlicially advised to that effect.
Two 3hips of the Campania Trans-At*
lantica are expected to arrive here on the
20th inst. Five vessels will be required
to transport all- the baggage and field
artillery and equipment. Hie Puerto
Mean troops ore to be landed neur Cadiz.
The United States commissioners have
agreed that such troops as desire to remain here may do so, and especially all
the volunteers and some of the regulars
whose families and interests are here will
remain. If the necessary ships were here
tlie island could be evacuated and formally in our possession within three days.
The American commissioners are highly gratified witli tlie spirit shown by the
Spaniards. Thc unexpected has happen*
ed. Where it was expected that opposition and delay would be encountered, in
good faith the Spanish commissioners
have met the Americans and arranged
with them tho terms of evacuation. Our
commissioners expect to see the American
tlag hoisted and the Spanish flag hauled
down forever within three weeks.

Pendleton, Ore., Sept. 17,—C. C. Cunningham of Milton, this county, this evening shot and killed 0. Young and seriously wounded Mrs. Julius J. Worcester
ut the O. it. & N. depot. Cunningham,
with a cocked revolver, chased .Miss Ef*
fie Worcester for a block, firing three
shots at her, but the young woman ran
into a saloon and eluded the murderer.
Jle ran through the saloon inlo the
Qreat Eastern hotel, here he snapped his
revolver twice ut Mrs. Johnson, the pro
prietor's wife.
Young is an employe uf the 0. It. &. N.
He was talking witli Mrs. Worcester and
her daughter Kllie at the depot when
Cunningham, crazed by drink, s ew out
liis revolver and commenced firing ut the
group. Young was shot through the
heart and died almost instantly. Cunningham then turned on Mrs, Worcester
and shot hei in the small of tlie buck,
indicting a dangerous wound. Miss
Worcester started to run up Main street,
when Cunningham llred three snots at
her, none of which struck her. With
thc empty pistol he kept ou snapping
t..e trigger repeatedly until tbey came
to the Lust Chance saloon, a block
away. A man standing in the saloon
door called to hcr to come inside, which
she did, darting under a billiard table
for refuge from her bloodthirsty pursuer.
Councilman Mitchell, George Reading
and several others came up and Reading
grappled the murderer. Both fell to the
ground, Heading holding Cunningham's
pistol hand as they struggled. Officer
Speer ran up and hy mistake struck
Heading on the head wuh a heavy cane.
Cunningham was finally landed ih thc
county jail. He could not say bow he
came lo do it. lie seemed dazed and
not entirely accountable. lie bus been
often in court hero charged with Belling
liquor without a license at Milton. Citizens are much enraged at his dastardly
deed und threaten to lynch him. The
ollicers ure nervous over these threats.
The physicians doubt the recovery ot
Mrs. Worcester, whose condition is serious. Sho is the wife of a well known
mining man.

Wushington, Sept. 19.—Major General**
Bates and Summer, who were prominent
in the Santiago campaign, reported at the
war department today. They are expecting a new assignment under the plan
winch is contemplated for tiie distribution
of troops.
It is almost settled that Shafter will
return to San Francisco and resume command of the department of California.
Such is his desire. Most of the officers
desire to remain in thc service, and influence is already being brought to bear to
keep them on the rolls of thc war department.
London, Sept. 10.—Three or four black
thunder clouds are overhanging the political horizon of Kurope. The Dreyfus,
Cretan and Egyptian questions have become more acute und it is difficult ut
present to ioreca c outcome in eith
er case. An indication of the activity in
the official world is found in the fact
thut thc Marquis of Salisbury, who went
for a quiet holiday to take the waters
of CentervJllc, has had a Special telegraph olliee established at his hotel this
week in order to deal with the muss of
official telegrams pouring in und out. It
is expected that the liritish premier hus
ordered that the most stringent measures be taken at Candia, where British
troops were recently fired upou by inns*
sulumns, the execution of which only
awaits the ai rival of sufficient reinforcements of hcr majesty's soldiers, who
now number 2000 there, while another
battalion is on its way to Candia from
Egypt. The most recent advices tend
to show that the powers are disposed to
give Qreat Britain a free hand to obtain
reparation foi the massacre of Christians
and thc insult to liritish arms. Admiral Nod, thc liritish naval commander
of Cretan waters, hus arranged with the
other admirals for the immediate withdrawal of the military contingents. The
liritish squadron now before Candia is
powerful enough to raze that place in a
few hours. The Turkish authorities at
Candia ure playing their old game of
(surrendering a number of nobodies as the
ringleaders of the nuissacrers, while a
number of beys, who nre known to be the
real instigators of the trouble, are still
at liberty and are likely to remain so until considerable further pressure is
brought to bear upon tlie Turks.

west of Curlew creek and about 20 from

more than a yeur ago. but it subsided,
und since then ever} thing hus been moving slowly. The ores ure u combination
of gold, silver nnd copper and the ledges

would seem to offer more thun au ordinary  Inducement to investors.    A gen*
' tleman who te thoroughly posted on min-
1 0.1
ing was in thc camp a  few  days since,
und says:
"There is no doubt about  the future
1 of Empire's mines. The ledges are there
plenty of them, und tbc ores carry ex*
j coptionol values. Like all other camps,
the owners of prospects either ure afraid
of their muscles or their money, '.t hey
are loo sparing of each either for tlieir
own good or that of the country. If tho
owners would display half the activity in
developing some of Iheir ledges that they
did in making and setting stake*), there
would undoubtedly have becn more than
one mine in camp ere this. What the
camp most needs at this time is the infusion of new blood. This must come before there will be greut material progress
in the shape of development. There arc
a few holders who while probably not burdened by wealth have sonic energy, and
spare muscle, and are now using it to
some purpose.
"There are some excellent showing-; iu

"f  was  eonvincid  tbat   placer   iiin-'-

I  believe  sueh  properties  offer quicker

of Meyers creek.   The indication? pointed
unmistakably to the existence of gold in

gold in all of them, occasionally getting
coarse   pieces  ranging   from   5   cents   to
10 cents in value.   Colors were plentiful.
"After prospecting over a large area of

$5 per dny to each man working.    Al  .1

During thc pait lev.' weeks a good
deal of unfavorable comment has been
beard on thc streets regarding the manner that those intrusted with the management of city affairs were conducting the
buiine.-y of the city. Just as soon as
properly owners show an interest in public affairs then those dfyle-jateil with the
.M-anagcment of tho municipal business
will be more careful in their actions
Heretofore the trouble bas been, nobody
seemingly took any interest in anything
the city council was doing. They allowed ma'ters to drift along in a slipshod manner until it was too late to
,-r.akc anv changes, then they would set
up a howl. All the time thc council
was discussing the question cf filling in
the sloughs on Riverside avenue and
Bridge Street there was not a taxpayer
present to offtr a suggestion as to how
faff woik should be (Jone. Alter the

course of action and the work bad been

(enured into between ibe contractor and
the city. It did not take tlie experienced
.yman ol business long to discovet that no
prevision, had been made in the contract lor top dressing the streets with
gravel. A general rumble of disgruntle
was heard all along the line, and the action of the city counjjjl in plating the
work in charge of a member of the
board of public works who was incompetent to look after tin? same, was freely
Trim is not the only instance of carelessness and indifference tbat we might

those whom they select to transact pub-

be badly governed and public affairs improperly administered. Tbe trouble
is that a tmprity of the poople, in every

to their honest opinions.

The council is ijot alone to blame for
this condition of affairs. There are
others. Any citizen who is afraid too
publicly express his opinion, for foar he
might make somebody mad, and allows
matters to drift along until it is too late
to make amends belore he says anything, deserves to bo badly governed.

not take advantage of the "loop-hole"

The action of the city council in excluding the public from a portion of ils
'deliberation*!, last evening, ia being
criticized on all sides. The members
of the city couacil were elected to transact the business for tbe city and all their
deliberations should bc opon and above
Ward, and not behind closed doors.
Star chamber sessions are not provided for in tbe municipal acts. But
then there are a good many things done
by the Grand Forks counoil tbat are not

The public will be disposed to accept
the piovisions ot the contract between
the city and Mr. Cumings and lay tbe
blame where it properly belongs—to the
ignorance of tbe board of public works.

Carbolic Acid  and Cologne
James Bern-hard In   His Thurst  For
Whiskey     Nearly     Loses
His   Ufe.
The city Was thrown into quite a fur-
toe about noon last Monday by a report
that a man had committed suicide at
"French MollyV place. by drinking
carbolic acid. City Marshal Sheads accompanied by Dr. Westwood and a half
doxea other people went to the scene of
the tragedy, where they found a man,
who is known to many of our citizens as
"All Around the World Jimmy," lying
on the sidewalk in front of "Holly's"
mansion in a semi-conscious condition.
They were informed by "French Molly"
that the man had came to ber place a
few minutes before with a companion,
both of whom were very drunk, and demanded something to drink. She said
that she told them that she did not sell
liquor and bad none in the bouse. He
still insisted on having something to
dM and during the conversation he
caught sight of a bottle sitting on the
stand in one corner of the room, and
grabbing it up took a drink from it saying as he did so "that it was whiskey.
The bottle contained a solution composed of carbolic acid and cologne water.
He bad hardly got the fluid into his
mouth before he spit It out and commenced to complain of his mouth and
throat burning. With the assistance
of his companion they had got him out
on the sidewalk and a messenger was
sent to notify the city marshal.
The doctor assisted by the city Marshall and the bystanders commenced
applying restoratives and one remedy
after smother was used in rapid succession. First a quart of jw eet milk was
poured down him, this was followed by
a balf gallon of hot water and mustard
and (hen a quart of sweet oil. But
nothing seemed to revive the unfortunate man and after working over him
an hour or two without making any apparent impression to revive him, it wa8
decided that if the acid and cologne
water had not already killed bim that
the remedies would and he was removed to the city refrigerator, where he was
taken in charge by the city officials.
^Jhout 5 o'clock in the afternoon the
effects of the whiskey, which he bad
been drinking for the past few days,
commenced to die in him and he returned to consciousness, and next day was
able to be up and about witb nothing
more serious than a badly burned mouth
and throat, as a reward ior his ravenous appetite for whiskey.
On investigation the man proved to
be .James Bernhard, who has been prospecting through this section and over on
the reservation, (or Holley, Mason &
Marks, of Spokane, for the past year or
two, and only arrived in the city tbe
night before from Nelson, Wash., where
it is said, he has been on a spree for
some time past.
Thursday afternoon Bernhard was
taken before Police Magistrate Johnson
on a charge of being drunk, and was
fined ti,* and costs. He was given
thirty days in wbich to raise the money.
Belelvcs that Corbin Will Bc Successful the
Next Time.
Captam Adams, president of the Midway Townsite company, was a pleasant
-caller at the Miner office Friday afternoon of last week. TJie Captain was
on his way to Midway from Slocan where
he has extensive mining interests. He
was travelling by easy stages having
spent a day in Cascade City and another
one here inquiring Into the possibilies
ot the railway being constructed to bis
town the coming year. Mr. Adams thinks
-that the C. P. R. will be running trains
into the district by the first of September next year at the very late**, and feels
confident that from this time on a general wave of prosperity will slowly but
surely sweep over the Kettle river and
Boundary creek districts, and that those
who stood by the country bo faithful for
the past six or seven years would soon
seap their reward.
Mr. Adams was one of the most ardent
supporters of tbe Kettle River Valley
railway charter last winter and was
greatly disappointed over its defeat. He
is of the opinion, however, that a charter will be granted Mr. Corbin by tbe
next dominion legislature and that it
would not surprise him in the least to
see trains over that route running into
tbe district first
Since bere last Mr. Adams has been
on the go almost continously, besides
having visited all the principal cities ot
Eastern Canada made a trip to London.
He says that everywhere he went that
he found a great (teat attention had been
directed to the Boundary country on account of tbe prominence given it by the
fight made by the C. P. R. against the
Corbin charter at Ottawa last winter.
T»H1 Increase His Facilities.
Mr. W. R. Megaw was an arrival
from Vernon Tuesday of this week for
the purpose of looking after his busi
pess interests in this city, which have
been under the efficient management of
Mr. H. Sweeney.
After spending a day in the city looking around he became fully satisfied
tbat Grand Forks will be a permanent
business center and in accordance witb
this decission decided to buy a lot and
erect a large business house to accommodate hi; steadily increasing trade.   Op
Wednesday he purchased from Mrs
Averill, the lot owned by her on Ihe
corner of Bridge and First streets next
to W. K. C. Manly's hardware store and
let a contract for the Duilding of a store
room 24x48 feet, to Mr. Fred Cooper.
Mr. Megaw left Thursday afternoon for
borne via Rossland and Nelson, ana
immediately on his arrival there will
make arrangements for the purchasing
of a $10,000 stock of goo s which will
arrive here by the time tbat his new
quarters are ready, which will be in
about thirty days.
About   Done.
Contractor Cumings finished his contract 0! filling in the sloughs on Bridge
street and Riverside avenue last Thursday anil commenced Friday morning
top dressing Bridge street with gravel
notwithstanding the f ict that he was in
no way bound by his contract to do so.
Mr, Cumings being one of the townsite
owners and largely interested in the future of theeity, realised that if he left
that thoroughfare in tbe unfinshed condition that his contract called for, tbat
instead of being an improvement would
have been a detriment, so he very generously consented to overlook the error
made by the board of public works in
neglecting to see that a clause was pui
in the contract for top dressing tbe
s'reeta witb gravel. Owing to the changing of the grade on Kiverside after the
work had been commenced, that avenue
will nccessaiialy have to be left in an
unfinished condition until such times as
it suits the pleasure of the board of public works to make some arrangements to
have the work completed.
Mr. Price, a practical railroad and
street contractor, had charge of the
work for Mr. Cuminys and the manner
in which he has done the work shows
that he fully understands his business.
R. A. Brown tbe Original Owner and Lo-
locater Will Have Charge of the Work.
Work on the Volcanic it te be commenced at snee by R. A. Brown, the original locator and owner. The work will
be done in the old tunnel which was
commenced several years ago and is at
present in 350 feet. Mr. Brown expects
to run threeshifts and will employ twelve
men. H. P. Toronto bas been engaged
to take charge of the boarding house at
the mine and Mr. Erown has a number
of men now at wc-rlfcgetting everything
in readiness to commence active oper-
tions which when once commenced will
be pushed until the ore body is tapped.
The Volcanic is one of the largest copper
propositions in the North Fork district
and the announcement that work is to
be resumed on the property will have a
tendency to stimulate others to develop
their properties in that section.
Two Blind Pigs.
Last Wednesday evening Provincial
Constable Gardom, of Midwav, brought
two prisoners into town from Gladstone
on Christina lake. Tbe charge preferred against them being that of selling
intoxicating liquors without having a
provincial license. The prisoners,
whose names were William Dove and
D. A. McAulay, were brought before
Johnson and McCallum last Thursday,
and were tried separately. Tbe evidence in both cases pointed to the
guilt of the accused parties.
Constable Gardom was working on
these cases several .days before he made
the arrests.
As these were the first offences committed by the prisoners, the magistrates
fined the defendants $15 apiece and
costs amounting to jtS.oo in each case
or 30 days at bard labori H. S. Cayley
acted for the defendants.
TlUey Fired Him Out.
Alderman James Kerr, of Greenwood
was in the city last evening and being,
a constant reader of tbe Miner, concluded he would drop in and see bow
the Grand Forks council done business,
He bad hardly got his nose in the door
however before he was fired out by
Maysr Davis, who informed him that
tbe council was going into secret session. Jim says that he would like to
have some of the learned aldermen ot
this city point out to bim the clause
■n the municipal .acts that provides for
the holding of star chamber sessions.
Burns & Wilson Get. the "Cheese."
Messrs. P. Burns and W. J. Wilson,
of Nelson, B. C, who control the West
Kootenay meat supply and of whom
mention was made in last week's paper
of being in the city for the purpose of
making arrangements for extending
their business into this district, have
purchased the business of the Kettle
River Dressed Meat and Provision company and will continue the same through
out the district. It is understood that the
services of both Messrs. Flood and Kerr
bave been retained by the new firm and
that they will have* charge of the business in this section.
Tuesday Evening September 27th the date.
Mr. Graham will open his new building with an entertainment and dance at
Edwards' ferry Tuesday evening September 27th, 1898, He will give a chicken supper at $1.50 per couple. A cordial invitation is extended to hisjmany
friends and acquaintances ln Grand
Forks and Cascade City to attend and
enjoy themselves for the evening.
Good music will be furnished free for
the entertainment.
Will Starte Work on the Pay Ore.
The Miner has received a letter ftom
Smith Curtis, of Rossland, in wbich he
states tbat he expects to start work on
the Pay Ore in about two weeks and
once started it wili be kept up continuously. The Pay Qre is situated up the
North Forks and adjoins the celebrated
Pathfinder property and the ore taken
from jt assays high in both gold and copper, 	
Broke Jail.
The city marshal of Greenwood was
in town Monday in search of a man by
the name of McCallum, who was arrested in that city last Saturday on a charge
of theft, and on either Saturday night
or Simday morning broke out of the
lock-up and took his departure without
leaving his future aiidress.
The Boom   Strikes  Cascade
City  First.
Lots felling as  High  as  $800   and
$1,00;.—Other Items of Interest
by Our Regular Correspondent.
Among the many fortunate people of
British Columbia, may well bc numbered those who, some time ago, invested
small portions ot their worldly goods in
the purchase of town lots in Cascade
City. True, for years, it was dead
money, but what of that? Now, those
who took chances, are in a very full
measure realizing tbat it was money
well invested, Tbey bad faith in the
future of the place, and "lime butth'
impression deeper makiys, as streams
iheir channels deeper wear."
Lots tbat were bought for f.100 to
{200 have increased from eight to ten
(eld. A few short months ago Cascade
was almost unknown ty> the outside
world, now it is last becoming famous.
Buildings are bcii.g erected as rapidly
as lumber can be procured and nails
driven. That witb the incoming of tbe
tote road from Brooklyn, tbe C. and W.
railway and the recent strikes in the
many valuable mining properties under
course of development in this immedi
ate vicinity there can be no doubt as to
he future steady, and with all, rapid
growth of the town. One year hence
we will have all the requisites for a
thriving town.
Cascade has many advantages, among
which m5y be mentioned its beautiful
location. The whole townsite is almost
perfectly level; Kettle river furnishes a
bountiful supply of water; Cascade Falls
will supply all the power that may be
required for lighting and mining purposes. It will eventually be to this por
tion of British Columbia what Bonning-
on Falls is to the Kootenay district.
In all of British Columbia you cannot
find a man more genial and pleasant
than is Mr. George K. Stocker, the general manager of the Cascade Development Co, This gentleman has stayed
with the townsite for several years, and
now he is reaping his reward, McCaw-
ber like, "rested on his oar" lor a long
time, waiting for "something to turn
up'' and now comes his harvest. He is
the roost conservative man ia lown.
Others worry and work from early morn
till eve, but Mr. Stocker sits qiletly
by watching the ever moving stampede
of new comers, fully aware that hiy sale
of lots was not dependent even upon an
advertisement in the Grand Forks
Ue is in this happy position that he
need not go even to newspaper men for
investors. From bis standpoint tbis
class of people wili come to him.
The inhabitants of Cascade City were
jubilant last Wednesday ovcr the arrival
here of the first stage over the now completed tote road from Brooklyn. The
event was duly celebrated, In a few
days a regular stage line will be established between this place and Brooklyn,
thus giving gsod connection witb all
points in Kootenay and with the C.
P. R.
The progress of this town continues
and the daily arrivals are increasing.
Sad to relate tbe lumber famine is still
retarding the growth of tlpe place, but
strong efforts are being made by the
enterprising people to overcome this
difficulty by the establishing of another
saw mill. The new mill, which is of large
capacity, is expected to be in operation
early next week.
It is needless to wish the promoters
ot this enterprise success, as all they
need do, is to furnish lumber and their
success is assured.
In the meantime the owners of the
present mill, Messrs. Earle and Lynch,
are running their mill by day and night,
endeavoring to supply the increasing
Tuesday the importance of the town
was augmented by the arrival in our
midst ot Mr. Ambley, of Midway, who
has lately been appointed to serve in
this place as a provincial constable.
He at once proceeded to size up the situation and by nigbt fall had a small job
on his bands. It was only a simple
quarrel, the first in town, and was speedily settled without any arrests having
been naie. Wednesday two "blind
pigs" in thc vicinity of Christina lake
were raided and taken to Grand Forks,
McDonald & Flood, proprietors of
the Grand Central hotel, have opened
their dinning room to the public and
expect to be ready to supply liquid re
fresbments in a very few days.
Tbe Cosmopolitan expects to be
ready for business this evening. W. H.
Reynolds, the proprietor, has spared
neither pains nor expense in fitting up
the place, and will be pleased to see all
of his old friends. The cafe, which is
one of the finest in the district, will be
under the supervision of Geo. I-. Hart,
one of the best known caterers in the
Kootenay's, so one can make no mistake in giving him a call.
H. L. Moody expects to open a real
estate office next door to the postoffice.
He wiil devote his attention (9 selling
lots in h|s new town at the foot of Christina fake. Tbe plat of the new town
will be completed the first of next week
when intended purchasers will have an
opportunity of making selections. Already a contract has been let for the
erection of a hotel which will be ready
for business in about thirty days. The
road that Mr. Moody is having built between Cascade City and the lake is fast
ncating cpmpletign and lyill be a great
improvement over the old one. Moody
ville with ile natural advantages will

Wednesday Morning's Stage  For  Marcu5
Met With an Accident.
Laet Wednesday morning just as tbe
Marcus stage was starting down the
steep hill about three miles from Hall's
ferrv one of the front wheels of tho
coach swung out cf the road and struck
a large boulder with such force that it
threw the driver, Sid Bartleit, from his
seat over the front end of the coach.
He struck directly in front of the wheels
and one of the front ones passed over his
right leg injuring hitn quite severely.
As soon aB the horses found themselves loose they started to run ajud went
jumping and crashing down ibe steep
and rocky road. They had not gone
very far however before one of the hind
wheels struck a tree smashing it to
pieces and breaking the hind axle of the
coach. The horses broke loose and ran
to Hall's ferry before they were caught
There were nine passengers on the
coach at the lime and there was a gen*
etal stampedo to get out and all but
three succeeded in j imping. The three
were a man aiid two women. They remained in the conch until it struck the
tree. One of the ladies escaped with a few
bruses while the other one was thrown
about 30 feet by the collision, striking
on her head, receiving internal injuries that may prove fatal. The remainder of the passengers escaped with a
few bruises and scratches, wilh tbe exception ol John Todd, the cigar m in of
Republic, who in attempting to jump,
slipped and iell partly under the coach
and one of the hind wheelB passed over
his ankle crushing and tearinj ihe flesh
and cords, and Jie is now in the hospital
at Spokane.

During tbe past week the town has
been full of railroad contractors who
came bere for the purpose of meeting
Mr. Stewart, who repiesents Mann,

contiacts, regarding the eocurmgof con
tracts in tbis vcinity, and according to
street talk contracts for several miles ol
grading west of Grand Forks were let.
work on which will be commenced as
soon as the contractors can get their
grading outfits on the ground.
At present there are six camps at work
between Grand Forks and Cascude City
employing between 250 and 300 men
ill differences between Mr. Gilpin and
the railway company over the right ol

Another contractor iB at present camp-
Irig on the Johnson ranch, awaiting the
adjustment of the right of way question
through lhat farm, and will commence
work as soon as the word is given.
Before our people really realize wha'
has happened the grade will be completed between Grand Forks and Cascade and then this city will be center of
ofthe large amount of railway work to be
done in this section. Owing to tbe
large amount of heavy rock work to be
done in this vicinity, it is estimated that
a large number of men will be employed
in this neighborhood for several months
which will naturally make things lively.
From tbose who are in a position to
know whereof they speak, it is learned
lhat Messrs. Mann, Folley & Larsen
contemplate the erection of a large
warehouse and company hospital in the
vicinity of Fisherman creek at once.
The tote road between Brooklyn and
Cascade City was completed last Wednesday, and hereafter the bulk of the
supplies and material used in the construction of the road will come that way
instead of via Marcus and Bossburg as
Mitchell Brothers, the freighters, have
secured the contract for hauling all the
company supplies into this district.
J. W. Jones, the enterprising furniture
dealer of this city, sold to Contractor
Larsen all the furniture to be in used the
hospital now being built at Cascade City
as well as the one to be built at Fisherman creek.
Pat Welsh, the well known contractor,
has secured a five mile contiact west of
Grand Forks and will make this city his
headquarters lor the winter.
Contractor McDonald has taken a
contract in the vicinity of Hardy's
ranch and will establish a camp there
as soon as his outfit arrives which is now
on thc way Irom Brooklyn.
Contributed Tow&r d Paying the Running
Expenses ol   the   City.
Business of all kinds is picking up in
the city. Even Police Magistrate Johnson is experiencing a boom, he having
two subjects on Monday and one on
Tuesday to practice on, and as a hyp-
notizer he is making a lecord for himself.
The first case on the docket Mondav
was that of George Graham, charged
with vagrancy.
From the evidence brought out at the
trial it appears that Graham in company with another man named McTag-
gett filled up their tanks with bad whiskey last Saturday night and started to
go to Upper Grand Forks, but missed
the road and brought up at the residence of Mr. Peter T. McCallum and on
being ordered away made himself very
troublesome, abusing everyone right
ana left.
After receiving a severe lecture from
His Worship he was fined $2; and fifteen days hard labor and in default of
payment of the fine the sentence was
extended to thirty days of hard labor.
Alex McTaggett, Graham's companion, was also tried for being drunk and
disorderly, and was let off with a fine ol
U5 i-.nd costs amounting in all to $7 50,
which was paid.
One of "Dad" Price's chief shovelers,
who we will call John Doe lor short,
contributed $17.50 to the city treasurer
Tuesday. John being one ol the champion single handed talkers is the district when under the influence of "booz"
came in contact with Provincial Constable GarJora, of Midway, Monday afternoon and proceeded, in not very
complimentary language, to tell that
gentleman what he thought ot him.
Gardom )aid a complaint before Police Magistrate Johnson, and Tuesday
morning John was "squeezed" for the
above amount.

CrlMla in France*
Xew York, Sept. 17.—A dispatch from
Palis Bays:
France la or. the brink of ihe gravest
crisis since the birth of the third republic The situation is briefly this:
Premier Brisson and all the other members of thc cabinet, with the exception of
Znrlimicn, minister uf war. and possibly
Ijockroy, are convinced of the absolute
necessity of the revision of the Dreyfus
case. General Brugero has signified his
willingness lu take the portfolio of war
and accept revision. At Saturday's meeting of tlie cabinet tho decision will be
taken and it is certain tliat revision will
b« decreed.
President Faure has been a determined
opponent to revision am! caused it to be
rumored be will resign if it. is granted.
No one believes In- will resign, but everyone sees that tlie threat to do so is a desperate expedient to get rid id' Brisson's
cabinet and of revision also.
lint Faure's unconstitutional action in
directly interfering witli responsibility in
the cabinet affords example of tlie lawlessness in high places which is the lirst
step toward revolution, A military coup
d'etat is freely conjectured as the probable outcome of the crisis, should KaureV
effort to bulldose the Brisson cabinet fail.

Chicago, Sept. 10.—A Washington special   says:
The opinion of Major General Joseph
Wheeler that the war is not ovcr and
that Spain will refuse to give up the
Philippines until forced to do so is shared by many army ollicers and by members of  the  cabinet.
President McKinley is not an optimist as to the continuance of peace and he
has insisted tliat the war department
shall keep fully 10u,<KM) volunteers in the
service until the peace commissioners
have succeeded in drafting a satisfactory
treaty or have failed in this effort
The president has been importuned by
senators, congressmen and governors to
muster out particular regiments, but he
has put his loot down and said that tlie
war department shall maintain sufficient
troops to be ready for any emergency,
even tliat of resuming hostilities, in the
event of failure to agree upon a settlement of the Philippine question.
To an Ohio delegation thut called at
the Whilo house a few days ago to urge
the muster out of another Ohio regiment
the president stated his position very
clearly. He told them he had little
confidence in the peace negotiations
with Spain except as they were backed
up by the determination of this government to enforce all its demands and be
ready to do this by resuming hostilities
on short  notice.
.Nu Confidence in spiitu.
The president's experience in seeking
lo settle the controversy with Spain
without resorting to war has not given
him not' his advisers much confidence in
Spain when diplomacy is tlie method of
reaching a settlement. Spain is a master of that kind of diplomacy which
means delay, and, while she sought
terms of peace when her fleets were de-
j 8 troy ed and ber anny ;it Santiago sur-
! rendered,   she   has   done   nothing   as   yet
to prepare for the consummation of her
I promises.
There  has  been  no  preparation  made
■ for the evacuation of Cuba, and    there
l are indications that the Spanish commissioners in tuba will attempt to drag
1 in many olliei questions besides the
plain and simple one of evacuation.   The
; American commissioners in Cuba have
been instructed to hold to this as the only question foi settlement there and
leave all other questions to the peace
commissioners in Paris.
The president lias the best of reasons
in  the action of tlie eortes for doubting
. his ability to secure a final peace without at least being ready to resume hostilities, lie has therefore impressed upon
his importunate callers that he can not
j muster  out all  of  the volunteer anny,
j but must keep u sufficient number of
troops in readiness to enforce his demands, lie must be ready to throw a
large body of troops into Cuba again at
short notice and he must bc ready to
send re-enforcements to the Philippines
lo show Spain lhat lie is just as determined  now   lo  have a  prompt and  rii'f-

inite acceptance of his terms of peace as
be was when he went to war.
Ter in»   of   Peace.
The terms cf peace have been laid
down, and tbey are explicit as to Cuba
and Puerto Hlco, There is only oue
question that is not definite about the
Philippines, and that is as to just what
part of the islands tbis government proposes to place under lhe American tlag.
That is to be the purpose of the peace
commissioners. Tbey are to say whether Spain shall release all or only a part of
the Islands. But Ibis question must
be settled apart from the Cuban question. The evacuation of Cuba will not
be allowed lo have any bearing upon the
Philippines, though it is apparent that
the Spaniards are again trying to get
round to that old diplomatic position
of surrendering Cuba and retaining a
large part of the Philippines.
Muni He Heady to Flffht.
Tlie president bas told some of bis con
gressional callers in tlie last few days
that with such a condition and with thu
uncertainty of the Spanish character, lie
is not justified in assuming that the war
is over and mustering out the volunteers. He has slated lo some of these
callers just what General Wheeler stated
in a public interview, that the war is
not over, but is likely to be resumed in
a few months unless the Spanish politi-
cians show a belter disposition toward
permanent peace by providing for the release of territory as agreed upon in the
terms of peace.
At least one of thc peace commissioners shares this suspicion and doubts tlie
ability of tlie two commissions to agree
upon any proposition concerning the
Philippines. The American commission
ers will insist Upon retaining at least the
island of Luzon, if not the whole group,
and the Spanish commissioners will not
dare, in lhe present state of public
opinion in Spain, to agree to either of
these propositions. It is therefore fear
ed that the negotiations of tbe peace
commissioners wiil be long drawn out
and finally come to naught unless the
president stands ready to break oil the
negotiations and resume hostilities.
This is the reason why President McKinley docs not intend to muster out tlie
whole volunteer army. He hns no d
Sire to resume the war and renew the
sacrifices of blood and treasure, but he
intends to hnve peace, definite and final,
within a few months if he has to light
for it and again order the army and the
navy into active service. The volunteers who are complaining lhat they do
not want garrison duty may find that
they will have something more exciting
in the literal expulsion of the Spanish
troops from Cuba nnd Puerto Rico, or
even the invasion of Spain to enforce the
old rule of dictating peace in the capital
of the enemy.

Chicago, Sept. 10,—The Times-lie raid
Philip I). Armour, Marshall Field and
Norman 1>. Beam have secured control of
the -Baltimore & Ohio railroad. They
have made James J. Hill, president of
the Great Northern railroad, the dominating factor in the reorganization of
the system and have gained for Chicago
und tlie northwest what is practically
a trunk line from ocean to ocean, controlled by Chicago capital.
Jlr. Ream engineered the deal by
which his wealth, tliat of Mr. Hill und
of Messrs. Armour und Field gained u
controlling interest in the Baltimore &
Ohio, which henceforth is to be a Chicago enterprise, fed and sustained in
transcontinental affairs by the immense
mileage of the Qreat Northern railroad.
If any road completes tho gap between
tlie terminus of the Great Northern railroad in St. Paul and the terminus of tho
Bul ti m oro & Ohio in Chicago, it will be
the Chicago Great Western roud, but
that is a mutter for the future.
Air. Beam will become a member of
...e executive committee of the reorganized road ind either Mr. Field or Air. Armour may become a director, although in
nil probability the trio will be represented by Mr. Ileum.
Mr, lflll's connection with the transaction foreshadows the statement that he
will be the prime factor of tlie roud.
While the price paid by thc Chicago
men is not known thc details of the
transfer of the properties of the roud ure
being discussed at a conference lield in
the Auditorium annex. At tliis conference President Hill, Mr. Beam, John K.
Cowcn, president of tho Baltimore &
Ohio, and Oscar Murray, receiver, and
William Greene, general manager of the
roud, were present.
Air. Beam declined to bc interviewed,
but one of the Baltimore &, Ohio officials
confirmed the report current in Wall
street Thursday nnd in Chicago railroad
circles thut in addition to thc holdings
of the road which the Rockefellers' interests arc reported to have secured last
week for western backers of the road,
Messrs. Field, Armour and Ream had secured sufficient reorganization stock to
make Chicago and the west tne dominant
element in the future management of
the road.
President Cowen wns not prepared to
make a full statement until after he hud
consulted with Mr. Ileum.
President Hill wns in a jubilant fruinc
of mind and would not deny that Field.
Armour and Ream had assisted him in
almost realizing his dream of having a
road from the Pacilic to the Atlantic
conlrolled by western men.

heart trouble, was short of breath and
could not walk five blocks to save my
life. Suffered very much with my
back, had headache all thc time, was
nervous, menstruations were irregular
and painful, had a bad discharge and
was troubled with bloating. I was a
perfect wreck. Had doctored and
taken local treatments, but still was no
better. I was advised by one of my
neighbors to write to you. I have now
finished the second bottle of Mrs. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and am
better in every way. I am able to do
all my own work and can walk nearly
a mile without fatigue; something I
had not been able to do for over two
years. Your medicine has done me
more good than all the doctors."
