New York, Oct. 9.—Bradstreet's says:
Distribution of general merchandise in the
central west and northwest is further
checked, owing to the prolonged drouth
in Kentucky, Illinois and Kansas, and
portions of Minnesota, Nebraska and tlie
Dakotas. Telegraphic advices to Brad-
street's report serious damage iu Kansas
and parts of Nebraska and Iowa, where
early planted wheat is up budding out,
but wheat planted later is not likely to
sprout. Fall plowing is impossible, six
weeks without rain having dried up pastures aud compelled farmers to feed stock.
Manufacturing industries throughout the
west, particularly iron and steel, continue
active, and there is an increasing tendency
on the part of tlie interior merchants to
remit promptly. While the volume of
trade has decreased at Chicago, it is ahead
of lhe like record in recent years. There
is an improvement in business in the
south, Alabama having raised the quarantine against Georgia cities and central
and northern Texas points having resumed commercial relations with Galveston. Planters continue to hold cotton,
which delays collections. Higher prices
this week are reported for cotton, which
has been declining for some time. Coal
and clothing are in sympathy for
naval stores under heavy purchases by
large traders; wheat, flour and eggs. Print
cloths, lard beef and sugar have declined.
Hides are weaker.

covered with oil spots and fragments of
a broken lamp were found in the house

give no explanation of what, had occurred
and was placed under arrest on suspicion
of murder. The neighbors say he and his
wife had been quarreling all night.

From Idnlio to Montiimi.
Boise, Idaho, Oct. 9.—Extradition papers have been issued for the return to
Montana of D. N. Dickinson, alias "Dr.
Veno," whose arrest at Poeatollo has
caused such a stir. Thc papers were delivered to P. II. Regan, sheriff of Silver
Bow county, and that official started on
the afternoon fauna after his prisoner, ^v
lively fight was made to get Dickinson
out of the clutches of the law at Pocatello,
and at one time his attorney, H. V. A.
Kergushon, had Sheriff O'Mallcy arrested
ou a charge of unlawfully imprisoning the
doctor. The state house has been deluged with appeals against the issuance of
extradition papers.

he had married in various parts of the
world.

Curio um Miscalculation by the llnu-

More   Information    From   A Ins Uu —
iiiiiuh Coin inula Note*.
A cablegram has been received from
Glasgow, Scotland, from the head offices
of tlie Diamond Hill mines, ordering a
shut down of the entire plant for a time,
The reason given is that the power that
was developed on Crow creek is far short
of the amount necessary to run the 120-
Btamp mill recently completed on this
property, The discovery of tho insufficiency of power was made after all the
machinery had been put in, aud thus far,
it is announced, the surprising result has
been Unit at no time has there been power enough to run as many .stamps as tlm
mill contains, The owners believe they
can not work economically on half capacity, and will endeavor to make other
arrangements for power before continuing. To develop power by steam would
be out of the question, so it is said, for
it would cost eight times as much per
horse power as the water power was estimated to cost. The Diamond Hill plant,
is one of tiupfaTgest iu the state, and the
fact thairthe discovery of insufficiency
of power was not made until the entire
machinery was in place is regarded as
one of the sensations of the day iu mining circles. It is said arangements will
be made lo secure electrical power from
the Missouri Kiver Dam Company and
transmit it 30 miles.
On Hunter Creek.
Among the pasengers arriving at Seattle on the steamer Rosalie the other
day were six from Dawson City, who
camo out over the Dal ton trau. They
were Pat Galvin and wife, Charles Thebo,
C. F. Garrish, C. IL Davis and a man
named Bede. They had. about $12,000 in
nuggets between them. They left Dawson August 29 and arrived at Haines'
mission September 23. They report that
rich strikes have been made on Hunter
creek, which is as rich as Bonanza or 101
Dorado. The total output this year will
exceed any estimate ever made, The
Rosalie reports everything quiet at
Skaguay, Many of (lie miners have completed building cabins in which to winter,
and others are ("aching their supplies preparatory to leaving till next spring, when
they will again try thc pass.
Mineral Output of Montana.
Eugene B. Braden, assaver in charge of
the Unitd States assay oflice at'Heleua.
has begun the work of gathering statistics for liis annual report to thc di,; pftor
of the mint of the metal output nf*£ m
tana. Mr. Braden said that he th 'light
the total mineral production of Montana
would be greater this year than hist. Tho
increase would bc mainly in copper. From
what information he has obtained he believes there will be less gold, silver and
lead than was produced last year, although the decrease may not lie great.
Several silver-lead producers in Montana
have closed down during the year, owing
to the low price of the white metal.
There is little dou. - that the copper production will be greater than ever before.
Willow Creek:.
Recent developments in the east fork of
Willow croek are of such a character as
to suggest that the mother lode of that
camp has been found. The developments
are on the Tiptop claim, five miles fiom
Pearl. There are two ledges on the property, each 25 feet wide. One is developed
by a 170-foot shaft. The value of the ore
averages from $10 to $-15, mainly in gold.
A second ledge has been found live feet
down the hill from the one first opened.
It is also 20 feet wide, but tlie ore is
richer, running from $25 to $50 per ton.
■t-Ioliij; to the Klondike.
One hundred and twenty miners have
arrived at Victoria, B. ('., on their way to
the Klondike. All obstacles in the way
of a direct steamer service between Victoria and Dawson have becn removed, the
Canadian Pacific Transportation company
have obtained permission from the \ nited
States to build a steamer at St. Michaels of Canadian material, which has already been sent up. and when completed
will be placed on the Yukon river to
connect with the steamer from Victoria
There will be no difficulty in the way of
transferring freight from one steamer to
another, there being a United States o-f
ficei* at St. Michaels.
Smelter lit   Twin   IIi'IiIuch.
An important event in the history of
Twin Bridges, Mont., was the "blowing
in" of the Montana Smelling and Mining
company's smelter the other day.
Amid great cheering,. Mr. Davis.
president, and I. M. Jacobs, general manager of the company,
wheeled out the first pot of slag. Three
cheers wore given for Sewell Davis, L.
llarfzell, T. Graves and I. M. Jacobs. As
the slag was running three cheers and a
tiger were given by the large crowd for
the company. In the neighborhood of 50
people from Butte witnessed the blowing in.
Nearlng1 the 1-IOO-Foot Level.
Burke, Idaho, reports that the Tiger
has commenced sinking again, after having suspended work on the shaft for a
month. It is not necessary to keep sinking all the time, for the ore chute is 1300
feet long, and the shaft can be sunk much
faster than the ore can be mined for such
a distance. The shaft is now 1325 feet
deep, and will continue until the 1-100
foot level is reached.
On  i n Greek*
Report reaches Boise that a great gold
ledge has been discovered on 1,-onn creek,
a tributary of the South Fork of the Salmon. It is supposed to be the source of
gold in the Loon creek placers, which created a great excitement in thc mining
world a few years ago. The ledge is said
to bc 45 feet wide and the ore of comparatively high grade.
In the Silver Cup.
The other day the miners in tlie Sil
ver Cup, near Revelstoke, struck a pay
streak of 18 inches of gray copper in tho
big ledge, whicli runs 1000 ounces in silver to the ton. Thirty-four actual miners
are employed in the Silver Cup and about
10 others building cabins, getting the
camp into shape for the winter, cutting
the winter's supply of wood, etc. The
Broadview has shut down altogether.
Fort   Steele   DUtrlet.
A, Smith nnd A, Quinn of Rossland,
who have been prospecting in the Fort
Steele district, located four claims on
Nigger creek, whicli they say are remarkably i'ich, carrying tellurium associated
with gold, ami assays run from $305 to
$000 iu gold.

BLAINE LOST THE CASE,
Long   Contented   L-ojral    lotion    Between   itin i.n  Conntleu   settled.
Boise, Idaho, (lit. 10.- Judge Stewart
has decided the case brought by Blaine
county against Lincoln county for an m-
counting. The decision is against Blaine.
Of all tlie points contested for, only one
is sustained, nnd that was practically admitted by Lincoln.
The court finds that the accountant's
report can not bc attacked excepting
where it deviated from the law. There i.s
found to have been only one deviation in
the matter of what are denominated the
"Blaine county resources."
The law provides that the amount of
cash in the treasuries of Alluras and Logan counties applicable to payment of
debts should be ascertained and deducted
from the indebtedness in arriving at the
amount to be apportioned. The cash
amounted to $727!>.:i4, but the accountants figured in a lot, of moneys that had
been collected by Alluras under the Elmore and other division hills; also a number of claims to whicli Blaine fell heir,
making a total of $155,929.02, which they
deducted. The court holds that only $37,-
279.114 should be apportioned. Blaine's
proportion is $:112,188.49 and Lincoln's
$217,842.01. The court also finds uiat the
value of the court house, $41,700, should
be added to Blaine's proportion and deducted from Lincoln's, This leaves $170,-
142.01 to he paid by Lincoln to Blaine.
The accountants made tho amount $127.-
877.80. The referee appointed in this case
mado it $225,400.43. and Blaine county
asked for $2:19,407.48.
CANADA WANTS A LOAN.
MiuiNter of Finance Fielding Wants
to  Borrow n Million.
London, Oct. 8.—W. S. Fielding, minister of finance for thc Dominion of Canada, has arrived here to negotiate a loan
of 200,000,000 pounds at high interest to
take up outstanding Indebtedness of Canada and to assist in the railroad and canal
developments of the Dominion. In an
interview Mr. Fielding said:
. "The Canadian government is well
aware that a number ol influential men
iu both parties of the United States are
dissatisfied with the present state of
trade between the United States and
Canada and it is quite possible this will
lead to some action. If the United Stales
government approaches thc Canadian
government on the subject it will be met
in the best spirit. They strongly believe
that it is an advancement of Canadian as
well as imperial intoresLs that there
should bc friendly trade relations with
their neighbors."
Madrid, Oct. 9.—The cabinet has decided upou the immediate recall of General
Wcyler from Cuba.    A decree will be issued appointing Captain General Blanco |
y Arenas, marquis of Fena-l'laiia, gover-1
nor of lhe island.   Tlie queen regent will ■
si^u the decree tomorrow.
According io Kl Heraldo 20,000 reinforcements will accompany General Blanco. In lhe course of a cable message scut
by General Wcyler to Premier Bagasta.
placing the post iu Cuba nl. tlie disposal
of the government, he said:
"If the functions wilh which Ihey had !
entrupsted mc hail been those of merely!
the government  of Cuba, I  should have'
hastened to resign. Bui ihe two fold character of my mission and my duty as com- ;
mander-in-chief iu the army prevent mc
tendering a resignation.    Nevertheless, although 1 can rely on the absolute and un-
conditional support of the autonomist and |
constitutional parties as well as upon pub-
lie opinion, this would be indefinite without the   confidence of   the government, j
This  confidence would   be  necessary  to I
enable me to put an end to the, war, whieh '
already  has    been     virtually   concluded
from our lines at Jucaro to Cape Antonio."
Senor Sagasla replied: "I thank you for
your explanation and value your frank- j
ness. I wish to assure you that the gov-
eminent recognizes your services and values thein as they deserve, but thinks a
change of policy, in older to succeed, re-
quires that the authorities should be as
one wilh the ministry. This has nothing
to do with the confidence-felt in you by
the government, for the liberals have always said that the responsibility for a
given policy does not fall upon those who
carry it out, but upon the government inspiring il. I shall communicate with the
government shortly."
Weyler Sli > n He Will  Go.
Havana, Oct. 9.—General Weyler gave
an emphatic aud absolute denial to the re- i
ports that he would resist removal from I
his command in Cuba, aud in certain eon- |
tingencics might espouse the Carlist cause. '
He said, according to the official account:
"My principles and my military record ;
are firm guarantees that I will never op- ',
nose the constituted government, what
ever it may be.   I never have put obsta- ;
clcs in the way of the government and 1
never shall.   So far as popular dcnionslra-
tions go, I accept them only as expressions
of approval of my military policy ftd as i
tokens uf personal sympathy."
The merchants of the island, according i
to the official account, continue fo send [
cable messages to Senor Sagasta express-
ing their approval of General  Weyler's I
command and  their entire confidence hi

K'<1 tieer Pish and Acting Mayor Skinner that
there are five cases of yellow fever here
and three cases that have recovered from
the disease. There is no doubt iu my
mind as to the con eel ness of the diagnosis. I have been very careful and have
made no statement as to any cases without close personal examination. The
eases are scattered and seem "to have no
conned ion. They appear to have developed in a quite confusing way and are
is   one
at Sealy hospital. J have reported two
at St. Mary's infirmary, but find that in
one at thc infirmary i was mistaken. I
misunderstood the statement of the attending physician as to thc presence of
albumen iu the urine. Finding there is no
albumen 1 alter my diagnosis aa to that
case. The other case in the infirmary is
distinctly yellow fever."
According lo this statement there aro
four cases of yellow fever, as thc case in
which GuiteraS was mistaken was one of
the live mentioned in thc above state-
meilt. A type of dengue fever bus existed at Galveston for the pas! 00 days, and
there have been 5000 cases of dengue and

TOO MUCH BAD "B002E"
A Town   Without   Any   Law.—The
Would.be Murderer Still at
Large.
John Martin, a miner of Eureka camp
on the Jreservation, is at present lying
in the Jubliee hospital suffering from a
gun shot wound in his right thigh, about
two inches below the groin, inflected by
a bullet from a 40-90 Winchester rillo in
the bands of James Hennessy who was
laboring under tqo much "reser
yation booje," which report says Eureka
camp is chuck full ol.
The shooting occurred about 5 o'clock
last Wednesday afternoon and the circumstances connected with the affair
pre best told by Mr. Marlin himself to
a Miner reporter yesterday, as be lay
in tbe hospital consoling with him
self tbat tbe bullet did not strike a couple
pf inches higher up.
"Last Wednesday afternoon, accompanied by my two partners, Janjes and
Tom Welsh, I went over to Hennessy's
cabin, where we spent the afternoon in
drinking and having a good time generally, and whi'e we were all feeling pretty good, none of us weie drunk. About
5 o'clock Hennessy suddenly left the
cabin without saying anything to anyone
taking his Winchester rifle, which is a
jfi <jo with him, In a few seconds after
leaving the house he appeared at a win*
dow at the back end of the building, and
befqre anyone bad time to realize what
was in the wind, he pulled the gun down
pn me and the next instant it went off,
tbe bullet grazing the tvrist of Tom
Welsh ant) then struck me. After firing
■fhe shot Hennessy took to tbe woods,
going in the direction of the boundary
line. As be passed a ditch, where a
couple of men were at work, he remarked, 'I guess I have got him this time,'
"I have known Hennessy fer tho last
fourteen years in Jdabo, where he taught
school, and never bad any trouble with
him before. For the past two months
Jlennessy bas been acting queer, and
the general impression seemed to be that
bis mind was unbalanced. Not long
■iince he tried to shoot Jimipy Clark with
out provication."
The Welsh Brothers and R, J. Purcell
at once strated witb, Mr.Martin,for this
pity for medical treatment. After travelling all night the party arrived here
about 7 o'clock Thursday morning, and
the wounded man was taken to the Jubilee hospital, where Dr. Smith dressed
the wound. It was found that the bullet entered the back of the thigh,grazed
along near the top of the thigh bone,
chipping off a number of small pieces
oi the bone, coming out in the middle of
fhe front of the thigh just Iplowthegrpin,
The wound is pronounced an exceptionally bid one being made by a large sized
bullet, and being so closo to tbe body
that amputation woul 1 be impossible in
the event ot a complication of disease
setting in, but as Mr. Martin is a strong
young man of 39 years of age.robustand
healthy his chances of recovery are very
good.
Parties returning from Eureka last
night report tbat nothing has been heard
from the would be murderer since he
made his escape.
DESERVED SUCCESS.
What Hqnest and Square Dealing Will Accomplish.
A little over a year ago Mr. H. A.
Huntly cast his lot with the destiny of
Grand Forks, and opened up a small
fruit, confectionery and tobacco store.
From the very day of opening his business Jhas steadily increased, and as a
result today Mr. Huntly is enjoying a
trade second to none in the city. From
time to time, additional lines of goods
have been added to his stock, until now
everything usually found in a first-class
grocery store is carried by him, which
he is offering at live and live prices. In
prder to keep apace with his steadily increasing trade, Mr. H. contemplates adding miners' boots, shoes, overalls, etc.
The fact that Mr. Huntly never makes
any misrepresentations to sell goods has
done much towards bring about bis pre
sent success and we bespeak tor him a
Continuance af his past prosperity.

Mr. George Filley, accompanied by

he intends to winter and receive treatment for bis eyes, which have beon
failing very fast of late. George expects

eeason.
II. P. Toronto, proprietor of the Toronto House, Brown's camp, is down
with typhoid fever. Mr. Toronto came
to town last Saturday to do some trading
expecting to return home the frame day.
When the time come to start he was feeling so bad he decided to remain over a
day. Sunday morning his condition had
become so serious that it was found necessary to call a physician. Mr. Toronto

FREE GOLD
That is What Joseph Ward
Claims to Have Struck

Will Put in a  Small Stamp Miil at
uOnce.—Other Items of Interest
Prpm the Hills.
Joseph Ward, the owner of the Ruby
claim, at the mou.h of Ifirdy creek
some lour miles from Grand Forks, is
greatly elated over a recent rich strike
on that property, a vein of free milling
ore having been opened up which assays }?,325,3s in all valuer. Mr. Ward is
confident that he has a oooil thin;. 1:1 the
Ruby, and as an evidence of bii failh iu
the property, says he has purchased a
small stamp mill of a daily capacity of
one ton, from parties at Camp McKinney, ivlirch he expects to have in opera.
Hon in about four weeks. Mr. Ward
says if this mill piove; a success lie in-
tends to erect a ten stamp mill on the
property at once.
The demonstration of tbe Ruby lo bc
a free milling pioposition will doubtless
load to new discoveries on the adj leant
claims, and it is a'tjgether likely
that timo w'U demonstrate the fact that
Hardy mountain his free milling as well
as copper and gold properties. »
Returned from tlie Smilkameen,
F. M. Longshore and G. C. Porter returned a couple of days ago from a tuo
week's trip to the Similkameen country,
They went as far as Pasatin and Roache
creeks, which is about thirty-five mill 0
northwest of Princeton. Duiing their
trip they secured a bond on a copper
and gold property known as the Golden
Clown, which is said to be one of the
magnets of the Similkameen district.
The Golden Crown has a 3-loot vein
of ore that assays as high as $4,000
in gold and copper, free gold being visible in the ore which accounts for the
high assays. Messrs. Longshore and
Porter do not contcinpla'u doing any
work on the property until sptiqg when
it ieiheir intention to open it up.
Clark Gets the SuowsI*c><*.
The bonding cf the Snowshoe claim
in Greenwood camp by "Pasty" Clatk,
of Spokane, means much for the Boundary creek districtin more waysiban one.
The fact that Mr. Clark has turned his
attention to this district will dp much
towards tur.iing capital and attracting
the attention of mining men ihis way,
as he has a large fo lowing who arc
willing to put their money in any distiict
that he thinks good enough fer him to
operate in,
Thc bond is fir $50,000 payable in
three tqual payments, at six, n ne and
twelve niorlli , wuh a working proviso,
which provides that woik is to be con-
tinous, commencing within ten days.
MINING   NOTES.
Several cases of typhoid are reported
through out tlie country. As yet, none
have proved fatal however.
The damp weather of the past week
hns been the means of driving a number of prospectors in from the hills.
Fred Af. Wells of Rossland, has been
in our midst for the last few days having
come here on business relatiug to some
mining interests.
A recent assay made from rock out
ol the Terr-Del-rico claim, located about
five miles up the North Fork, showed
returns of $28,25 in all values.
The repott comes from Nelson that
work is soon to be resumed qn the Com-
stock-LeFleur property, It is said that
eightoen men are to be put to work.
Hugh McCool, collector of customs at
Marcus, was an arrival on Monday's
stage, on his way to the reservation to
look after his mining interests there.
Messrs. Holms and Galfert, owners of
the Klondyke claim, on Hardy mountain, have about completed arrangements
for the sinking [uf a 50-shaft on this property.
S. M. Kirkham whobas heen working
on Hardy mountain propenies for the
past month, was in town Wednesday
and reports considerable assessment
work being done in that locality.
E, M. I'l. Munns passed through thc
city last week on hiH way to Greenwood
where be went to start work on the Anaconda claim. Mr. Munns was accompained by J. C. Hole, a Colorado mining
man, who will have charge of the work.
The owners of thc Last Chance claim,
iiittiated on the North Fork about one
milo from town, will start to work next
Monday, running a 50-foot open cut to
crosscut the mammoth quartz ledge said
to be on tbis property.
James L. Jarrell camedown from Summit camp Monday, where he has been
at work building the boarding houses
at the B. C, pioperty. Mr. Jarrell says
that there is a large force of men working both ways on the wagon road from
that camp to Greenwood, whiyh it is expected will be roady for traffic in about
thirty days. Mr. J. also expressed the
belief that the people of Grand Forks
would regret their action in not building a road into the camo, as there is a
large trade in that section which would
have come hore.
Merchants in Trouble Again.
Last week VV. H. Merchant was sum*
mond before Magistrate J K. Johnson,
charged with carrying on the business
of a drayman without a license therefore, as provided in the city trades
license by-law. After hearing the evidence in thc case, Mr. Merchants was
given 24 hours in which to obtain a
liceiise and pay the cost of the action,

Ci.l Hi.  Hani.
Ra'ph Brown *t*f lhe Chic go meat
market, is having qui rt a serious time
with his hand. About a month ago
when Ralph first assumed charge cf tl e
shop, being sjrnewbat awkward with a
butcher knile, he nearly cut til two cf
the fingers of the right haul. At first
very little attention was paid to it, and
in consequence thereof, he caught cold
in the hand and tor uwhile it was a question whether or not the fingers would
have to bc amp: tated 10 save tbe hand.
The doctors now think, with care, they
will be able to save the fingeis.

MONGOLIAN  ELECTORS.
The I him-,. ,   Vote   In   California Will
Be an Important Factor.
'    The Isolated patter of oue pair of
Chinese baby feet in a noisome "China
■ alley" a  few years ugo would  liave
' caused a flutter.   Almond eyes, olive
j skin, Jaunty cap, rustling silken gar-
inents,  snowy  white  little shoes,    a
j braided "pigtail" whicli oscillated like
i n pendulum, long   Dnger   nails—und
| then,  was  the llttlo pagan  who  pioneered n long array of similarly attired
! other little pagans out from Chinese
, hovels into the sunshine nnd fearless
j freedom In the open nlr.    A nntlve-
i born citizen, the American eagle seemed not a whit proud of lilm; a native
I eon, California was ready lo repudiate
hiin.
Now* the palter of one pair of feet Is
j succeeded by the sound of legions.   In
Chinatown's dirty purlieus an infantile army has been reared.   Two years
ago tlie school census takers found 1,-
i 500   Chinese  children   of  school  age.
Thoro are not less than 2.(1(10 nntlve
suns and daughters in San Francisco's
Chinatown III whose veins Chinese
[ blood Hows, und who nre lawful heirs
nf American citizenship, A small army
of Mongols is marching leisurely along
the diisiy highway of time toward the
l.nlli.i box,
This phase of lhe Chinese question
linos inn appear to bave i n   fully
comprehended. Hut not later than
tho lour 1020, at tbo present birth rate
in Chinatown, nnd supposing average
conditions regarding mortality to obtain, It is us clear us anything can be,
Uml s ithlng liko 2,5(111 Chinese children will he entitled in iho ballot of
Snn Francisco alone. Sacramento.
Stockton, I.us Angeles, San Jose, and,
in fact, nearly nil communities in Call-
| fnrnln have also their native-born Mongolian bullies who are on their way to
citizenship.
Not loss than 4,0(i(i native-born Chinese voters will be In tbe Held of polities in 1020 in California—enough with
au alliance with some large political'
party und with ti united front, to carry
a Stale election; enough to settle the
Presidential election if California
should lie the pivotal State, conceding
that the strength of parties should be
somewhat nearly divided.
Surely the students of political history must see something curious In this
not very remote contingency. Less
thnn one-quarter of one century may
see dragon Hags Hying from the roofs
of Chinese jnss houses, from the tops
of buildings In whicli fan-tan games
abide, and from scores of buildings
reeking with tilth nnd "smelling to I
heaven," In celebration of the elec-;
tiou of n candidate of the Chinese for
Governor or even for President of tho
United Slates of America, or Congressman, or mayor, or supervisor.
There may even come a time when
bonfires will burn In Chinatown nnd
Chinese gongs and other alleged musical Instruments be sounded to catch
lire Mongolian vote, and wagons carry
Up nnd down the sleep slopes advice to
Chinese-Americans to vote for Ah Jow
or Tom Lee for sheriff or mayor, or
some other equally Important oflice.
Chinese, It is well known, have
strong family attachments, Thc bend
of a family directs all others, who obey
him Implicitly. Unquestioning obedience gives the Ideal conditions required for henchmen of a political boss.
Another queer feature engrafted upon
the American political system In San ,
Francisco will be the Influence of aged
Chinese who have uo vote themselves,
but who will have power to insure
how numbers of votes will bo east.
Tho Chinese patriarchs, with goat-like
boards, will be the "bosses" of thu
most approved sort. This Is curtail)
enough.—Sun Francisco Call.
THE LANGUAGE OF TRADE.
Rapidly Becoming Recognized In the
World'-. Commercial Center*.
Notwithstanding  all  the  difficulties
! foreigners And lu mustering the Eng-
, llsh language, that tongue ls becoming
lhe handmaid of commerce the world
over.    Sir Michael Mulhnll has shown
that  of all the seven European  languages the English alone has Increased
In use since the beginning of the century.   And the figures tell a story not
of nominal increase, hut of jumping up
to more than double,  the percentage
| being from 12 to 27.   Three great coun-
; tries within a single year have ordered
! the teaching of English ln the schools.
| This was the first thing Ll Hung Chang
saw to when he returned from his trip
nround the world.   Japan Is giving to
the study of English literature and language   more   time   thnn   to   her own
tongue.   President Diaz has compelled
i the study of English lu nil the schools
of Mexico.
( The queer and sometimes awkward
features of English orthography are the
only blocks to the general acceptance
of our tongue in commercial dealings.
Then, too, there is no court of lust resort lo which differences of opinion on
these disputed points can be carried.
This Is the kind of arbitration Unit the
world needs most, Bay people whose
trade brings them lu contact with all
nations, America's great commercial
competitor, Germany, Is the most active in efforts to displace English by
the German language, or by some new
i and universal tongue. Naturally Germany opposes the advent of such a
court of arbitration us Is proposed by
tradesmen, for thnt country realizes It
would Inevitably lead to the choice nf
English nnd drive out the mother
tongue.-New York Press.

Learned, but GJooentrio.
Professor Lincoln, of Brown University, whose death occurred a few years !
ago. used to tell amusing anecdotes of
Nennder, the great professor and Ids- ]
toi'ian of the Chrisllnn Church of the
Berlin University, under whom lie
si udied for some time.
Nennder wns accustomed when lec-,
Hiring to stand behind n curious, high
desk*, with un open framework, and
wlthliolosandpogs for letting it up and
down. Ills costume was n very long j
coat, coining down to the lops of bis '
great jack-boots, nud with n collar
which reached almost ns high as his
hcadas lie bent over ids desk, and with
anus extended forward, twirled In his
lingers a quill pen. If this quill dropped, there was a hiatus in thc lecture
Until some one would pick it up and
place it lu his hnui)s, and then the wonderful How of learned discourse would
proceed.
It is said that When Nennder went to
Berlin he happened, In going from his ,
homo to tlie university for the first
time, to bc with a friend who, for tho
sake of some errand, took a most circuitous route; Nennder pursued this
roundabout course for years, and only
by accident discovered that there was
a shorter way.
On one occasion, being Jostled on n
crowded sidewalk, in order lo pass by
thc crowd, he stopped off into the gut-
lerwllh one foot, keeping tlie other font
ou tho curbstone. When (he crowd
was passed, lie continued ubsent-inind-
edly to walk ou 111 lids curious fashion,
ami when lie reached Inline lie com*
plained of being fatigued from the
disordered condition of lhe slroets.   An
acquaintance, who hud followed him,
was able to explain his fatigue.
Two Martial Poems.
Soon after the close nf Ihe Civil War
Casslus M. Clay, T. C. Durant, of the
Cnion l'aellie Railroad, Commodore
Hoggs, Curtis Guild, the secretary of
tlie Russian Minister, and two other
gentlemen were guests at a little supper nt tlie Fifth Avenue Hotel, New
York. The conversation turned upon
Tennyson's "Charge of the Light
Brigade," which one of the guests declared to be the most martial poem ever
written.
"Hah!" exclaimed one of the company, half In Jest. "The rhythm ls
faulty, and some of the lines remind me
of pumpkins rolling over a barn floor.
For Instance:
" 'Some one bad blundered,
Rode the six hundred.' "
"I defy any one to nunie an American
poem so inspiriting." retorted the enthusiastic lover nf the British poet. Mr.
Guild, who reports the conversation in
his "Chat About Celebrities," suggested that there was Holmes' poems of
"Old Ironsides."
"Do you know the lines?" was demanded.
"Oh yes! I declaimed them more thnn
thirty years ago at school."
"Well, I challenge you to recite 'old
Ironsides' and I will recite 'The Charge
oftheLlght Brigade,' and we will abide
by the verdict of the company as to
which is tlie most Inspiriting."
"Tiie Charge" was recited first, and
It was done admirably, At Its conclt!
slon, after the applause had ceased, iu*J
Guild began back ln "A Metriynl Essay," lu which the author re-presented
the poem with nn Introduction, and
then followed It with the well-known
verses, beginning:
"Ay tear her tattered ensign down!"
"By the time," he writes, "1 wus half
through the lirst verse I saw the face
of Commodore Boggs light up and his
eye flash; 'Cash' Clay, too, wns nil attention. The poet's lines had their effect.   As the declnlmer ended with
" 'Nail to the uinst her holy ling,
Set every threadbare sail,
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning nnd the gale,"
the brave old commodore brought down
his fist oti the table, exclaiming, 'That's
bo, by Jupiter!' aud Clay leaped to his
feet, shouting, 'Hurrah for the American fine""

How They W re Married.
Years ago there lived in a Massachusetts town n justice of tlie peace known
ns "Square" Simniouds, u man noted
for the shortness of his memory. He
carried about with him a slip of paper
on which was written the brief marriage form which he used when called
upon tc unite a pair iu the lionds of
matrimony, He never trusted himself
to begin the ceremony without reference to tills document.
One day, at n county fair lu n neighboring town, he wns approached by an
elderly couple, who expressed their wish
to be married then and there. After
some conversation Ihe "square" agreed
to perform the ceremony on the spot;
and Hie three, accompanied by a grownup daughter of the man nud a sister of
Ihe prospective bride, stepped Into a
convenient horse-shed.
There tlie "square" began a fruitless
Rcarch for tlie Important paper, growing mure and more perturbed as each
succeeding pocket played him false, At
last he abandoned tile search,
"Are you willing lu marry tills woman 7" he asked the ninii, who replied
with a prompt "Yes."
"And you waul to marry him7" asked
lhe Justice, turning to the bride.
1 do," said she, with promptness
equal to the bridegroom's,
"Then," said the "square," in ills most
Impressive tone, "I hereby pronounce
yon married, according to the memorandum left at home lu my other trousers pocket."

MRS. PINKIIAM'S STANDING
INVITATION.
Women suffering from any form cf
female weakness are invited to promptly
communicate with Mrs. Plnkham, at
Lynn, Mass. All letters are received, opened, read, and answered by
women only. A woman can freely
talk of her private illness to a woman.
Thus has been established the eternal
confidence between Mrs. Pinkham and
the women of America which has never
been broken. Out of thc vast volume
of experience which she has to draw
from, it is more than possible that she
has gained the very knowledge that
will help your case. She asks nothing
in return except your good will, and
her advice has relieved thousands.
Surely any-voman, rich or poor, is very
foolish if she does not take advantage
of this generous offer of assistance.

yestcnbiy direct from St. Michaels, having left there on September 19. The Sailor Uoy brought nine passengers, who
came souftl to spend the winter rather
than endure the hardships incident to life
at St. Michaels until the river opens in
the spring.
Among tlie passengers was John Quincy
Barnum of Murray, Idaho. Barnuin was
one of the Hit passengers on the steamer
Eliza Anderson, which was forced to put
into Dutch Harbor iu a disabled condition, where she now lies. Of the trip
from Dutch Harbor to St. Michaels Bar-
limn says:
"One hundred and seventy people made
tlie trip on the little schooner Baranoff,
on which there was not comfortable
standing room, to say nothing of having
to go the entire time without sleop. Although tlte distance from Dutch Harbor
to St. Michaels is but 400 miles, 10 days
were consumed in making the trip, owing
to a strong wind which sprang up when
we were within 40 miles of St. Michaels,
and blew us so far out that we could
plainly see the Siberian coast. Thc
schooner shipped water until everything
and everybody was soaked, and it took
four days and a half to get back to St
Michaels. Owing to the crowded condi
tion of the schooner there was actual suffering aboard and on reaching St. Michaels everybody was worn out ami the
sight we met there only added to our disgust. The result was that several of us
took the first opportunity to get out
quick."

Barnum said there had been no news
direct from Dawson City received at St.
Michaels for four weeks previous to his
leaving, and no news can possibly be
brought by river before next summer, as
ice was already forming in the salt water
at the mouth of the river, and the fresh
water must certainly have been frozen to
considerable thickness at that time.
"In a month from now," said he, "I do
not believe there will be 100 persons left
at St. Michaels, as nearly everybody is
preparing to come back. A great many
will come down on the str-amer Portland,
but a majority left ere this on the three-
masted schooner Novelty, which was discharging when we left. The captain of
the Novelty will bring down with him all
those having sufficient money to pay for
their board on the trip, no fare being
charged. This is done simply as an act
of charity and in the interest of humanity. Many persons have not money sufficient to pay for their board on the
schooner, and unless they can sell their
outfit for cash will be forced to remain
at St. Michaels during the winter."
Regarding the steamer Eliza Anderson
Bamum says a revenue launch officer at
Dutch Harbor told hiin tliat the old craft
will never be permitted to leave there in
the capacity of a passenger boat.
'l'he schooner Sailor Hoy will remain
here awaiting orders from her owners in
San Francisco.
