already been made, but promised to
give his attention to the matter at the
next session. As it is rumored that
an early session of the Legislature
will be held in November, tbe petition
will act as a gentle reminder to the
Col, of his promise.

Logansport,   Ind., Sept.   25.���Any
night  during the  past   week as the
moon rose through the tops of the tall
trees about the historic spot known as
Battle Ground, the spectacle of an aged,
bearded figure spading at the turf beneath the pines might have been seen.
The ghastly workman was digging at
his own grave.     For many years Al-
lanson DeWitt has lived in this secluded place, unloving and unloved, spending his leisure with his pen und books.
He was a victim of unrequited love. In
1828 he waa one of the beaux of New
Vork.    A relative of the Stuyvesants,
he was admired in the city's  highest
social circles. But he became infatuated
with   the  betrothed of  another, and
finding his love hopeless, he sought
the west, and  ever since has led tho
life of a recluse and a hermit.    For 40
years he has inhabited the lonely cabin
on the banks of tlie Tippecanoe.   Now,
in his 87th year, with whitened beard
that reaches to his waist, and piercing
iiyes, half hidden beneath heavy brows
Iio   has  become  au adherent of  Col.
Ingersoll, and  firmly   proclaimed the
justification of self-destruction.     Not
only has he completed the digging of
his own grave, but lie has ordered his
monument and composed his epitaph.
It   reads as follows, his   directions lo

Sotno unusually good opportunities
for small-holding agriculturalists hit,
wo believe, to lie found on IhiiiI situate
about two mill's beyond Golden on the
Fort Steele road, In ibis, as in other
parts of the dry region of East Kocte-
nuy, the farmers'opportunities are at
present all too limited, iu consequence
of the absence of an irrigation system ;
but the Iniiii iu question bus iu the
height of summer a moist, block soil.
This is caused by nn abundance of
small springs, from which a sufficient
water supply should be readily obtainable. As prices at Golden and Douiil-1
and other railway towns iu tbe neighborhood,'are good, and as the market
is understocked, a holder of leu acres
of the laud in question should be able
' to make a very fair living indeed.
Potatoes, rhubarb, cabbages, cauliflowers, onions, pens, aud vegetables
in general, can lie grown iu abundance;
and though certain delicate fruits cannot be raised on this ground, strawberries, raspberries and certain kinds
of apples - crabs especially - may bu
cultivated with much success. The
laud can, it is understood, be obtained
from thu Dominion authorities on
reasonable terms, und it is somewhat
strange thut mure of it has not been
takitn up iu small acreages. A probable reason is found in the fuel, thut
lho people in tbe district are, iu general, so closely absorbed iu gold mining
endeavors, as to miss the local opportunities for making n very fair living
by the petite culture. The prices of
farm produce at Donald and Goluen
average Hourly double those of the
cities of the lower Fraser: hence the
special local opportunities fur the smiill
cultivator. Tho area in question is
not very large, but sufficient fo afford
subsists lieu to a fair number ol thrifty
cultivators. The bind is sheltered by
foothills, aiid being only covered with
a light growth of Cottonwood, is very
much easier to clear and work tbiiii
almost any in lhe Fraser valley.
Golden and Donald together afford
fair local markets for farm product! iu
catering for a population of some 1200
to l.'lJO souls.��� Muiuliilidei'.
Mr. William Caldwell, one of the
pioneer men of the Lake of Ibe Woods
district nnd late stipei-iutuiidout ol the
Sultana iniiii', is in the city. His mission is to purchase miicHiunry for a
now enterprise, which he is undertaking ii connection with Mr. W.ll.
Motley, the eminent English mining
engineer, who passed through Winnipeg a few days ago cn route tu Chicago,
when ho will purchase portions ul tho
plant that cannot 1st secured in Canada. These gentlemen intend lo open
up a new mine in W'liiudisli Bay, as
lhe representatives of n strong and
wealthy British syndicate. This syndicate have been working tlie Rajah
mine but the property did not turn out
entirely satisfactory nml wus abandoned.     Through  the representations
of Mr. Motley, however, wbo wns
convinced that it was the locution of
thut particular mine and not the resources of tbe country that was at
fault, the syndicate decided not. to
withdraw from the district, and gave
Mr, Motley instructions to follow his
own judgment. Believing, from what,
he bail seen that there was enormous
mineral wealth in the district, tba'
gentleman, under the guidance of Mr.
Caldwell, undertook u prospecting trip,
whicli lusted three months, and resulted in tlie location of the property
ou Wliitelisli Buy already referred to.
The outcome of their enterprise will be
watched with much interest both at
home uinl abroad. Mr. Motley intends
to itiiikit a success cf tb.) mi lie so far
as skill ami money can do it, and
thereby ho|ics to attract the attention
of Canadian and foreign capitalists to
the promising field for the miner nnd
Mr. Motley was  strengthened in bis
belief iii the wealth of the region of the
Sultana mine, whicli has  lieen worked
for two   years   by  Mr. John F. Caldwell, nnd  who  up to  tbe present bus
taken   between   870,000   anil  ��75,000
worth   of  gold out  of   the property.
The Sultana lias been   visited   during
the past year by many American and
European  experts, who have admitted
that it is almost an unknown thin-; in
mining history  for a man to make the
development of a mine pay such handsome   returns us   havo   rewarded Mr.
Caldwell's   efforts.      Usually  it costs
from   850,000   to   $100,0C0 in nearly
every  mining   region to get a mine in
shape before nny returns can lie looked
for.    The Sultana  now employs about
forty men. and isequippedas thoroughly as an old mine after years of development, having   a stamp   mill, com-
pivssure  drills,   shaft  house, hoists,
tramways, electric light, etc.     It is a
matter of   great wonder to all experts
that Mr. Caldwell, sringle handed nnd
in the face of great obstacles, has been
able to persevere in his enterprise, nnd
they   si in ply   marvel at   the   results.
Tho only explanation of it is (he richness of the country  and bis linn belief
iu the ultimate outcome.     The whole
Dominion is  under obligations to Mr.
Caldwell, for what he has accomplished single bunded  he has proven in the
bice ot   all prejudice* that one of   the
richest resources of Canada lies in the

We may expect, next session, unless
the matter be previously settled satisfactorily, to lii-iii- the Donald townsite
ownership question vigorously discussed in the Dominion house, by Mr.
Laurier und other members of the
Liberal parly, to whom the aggrieved
owners, despairing of obtaining any
help in the matter from Mr. Mara, M.
P., as their local representative, bare
submitted their i.nse. The fact will
scarcely be credited, but faut it is,
that from eighty thousand to a hundred thousand dollars' worth of private
property in Donald has been held for
many long years without n title, and
therefore its unsaleable realty, though
ihe hotels, shops and other buildings
in question were erected on the faith
of Dominion townsite plans und promises of -lulu ou fair tortus, made about
nine years ago. Thu area iu doubt is

authorities cannot, however, excuse

Ho prized lt�� faded blue.

There was weeping and walling and
gnashing of teeth in the St. Clair household.
Caroline, the yonngest daughter, had
decided to carve her own tort.-ines, as
those of the family were getting in a
most entanirled condition, aud "unbeknownst" to her worthy relatives had
sought and secured a situation as typewriter in one nf the big, wicked Chicago s well known business houses.
"It's a disgrace to the family 1" Brother jliiib declared, and he donned bis
overco;.t and repaired to the clubhouse
around the corner. Mamma wept loudly ; -.ana fumed faintly.
"John Vandergast!' moaned mamma.
"He will never look at yon again I A
daughter of mine a typewriter Is
Caroline's short upper lip cnrled
slurhtly more than already curled by
nature, although an apprehensive loon
did come into h r great hazel eyes.
"If you think, uiy dearest mother,
that I am going to starve hero in this
remote quarter of the woods, even in
the most genteel style, just for one look
from Mr. \ auiierguot, you are vastly
"There are other employments for a
woman���such a public" positioul And
typewriters ure always so���ao tailed
���'In the newspapers," added Caroline.
"Bnt no one will ever talk ahont met"
she finished, witi. stern bravery.
Before it was time for Caroline to
leave for the distant city, her father
bad altogether ceased hisfuminit and
wns considering the advantages iif his
daughter's assistance. Of late years tbe
struggle had been a hard one fnr. bim.
His wife inul always been a Bounty woman und extravagant; indulged tons
and fashionable -laughters, wiumu marriages hud cost hiin a small lortnne, had
so reduced the estate made iu his prime
that now, iu his old age, bankruptcy
constantly stared him in the face.
"1 regret, daughter," he said us the
train whistled and they were ont on the
station platform," thut you are going so
far from home. Bnt I know how you
would feel to begin labor here, aud I
fully apprieciato your efforts in assisting me. The burden is growing heavier
every year," and he sighed.
"Somebody hns to do something," re*
tnrnt'd th') daughter sententionsly.
"And I know yon are fully capable
nf taking care of yourself. God bleas
you. my girl."
And the careworn father was prouder
nf his typewriter girl than of his wealth
i*st and most beautiful daughter.
Bnt once on the car, and steaming
Chicago-ward, Caroline wns not unite
so brave, and despite her tall, dignified
self, one or two tears rolled down her
aristocratic nose ami defied the superior
attle cnrl of her short upper lip.
What if John Vandergast���they had
been such friends before he left for
Europe, and although Caroline had not
given her promise, for she was not sure
nf herself, she had consented to speak to
him again upon the subject when he
wonld return.
Now she was sure of herself���but
John I
"It is one more test," she said sternly
to benelf as she brushed away the impertinent tears, "and a good one too. I
am so glad I defied mamma and took
tbe business course at college."
In the excitement of her new life Caroline forget her little thoughts that
might have been culled sentiment. She
pissed the ordeal of critical examination
by the other typewriters in the office
with supremo ii-diileriieoo and so impressed her employers witb her dignity
���hat they were half afrairt of her.
As ��� typewriter she w.is invaluable���

"That tnrl," declared tbe junior part-
air, "tot aly o ins mo. She's too pret*
:y to be Bum a prude."
' 'Ye���es," drawled the senior, and that
afternoon the gentleman asked her how
the spent her evenings.
"SirT" enquired Curollne.
"Yon���exonse me. but yon are young
and not homely, and yon will pardon an
old man if be takes an interest in your
welfare in this great city."
"Ah yetl" Caroline drew a long, expressive breutn. aud a close observer
wonld have said her nostrils dilated
something like those of a high strong
horse. "Sunday evening I attend services at St. James; Monday evening I
devote to literature, Emerson, Carlyle,
and Renan, being my favorite authors;
Tuesday eveningl attend the innsicales.
and Wednesday evening I attend prayers. Thursday I again devote to reading; Friday eveningl generally attend
the opera or concert, and Saturday eyen-
ing I give to preparations for the Sub*

���men she turned to ber Remington,
and the old gentleman groaned in aa
Caroline was flushed and wrathful.
"The old sinner I" she was fnming to.
herself ss she took his dictation in shorthand.   "As though he thought I could
uot understand I"
Caroline was past twenty and could,
ered capable of taking care of herself,
yet she felt as injured and insulted as
though the white-haired man had ogled
her as he did the youngest and most
Hinpiint girl in the house.
But Caroline did not wish to lose her
position, for it was au unusually paying
oie, aud it began to be an eiiort to-her
to repel the insinuation of the senior
partuer without olleudind him. Bhe
soon detested him most heartily.
One morning the junior partner camo
In very much flurried.
"Vandergast is in town," he said.
And despite herself Caroline reddened
uud then grew pale
"Hey! You don't say I Well, that's
dencedly inconvenient just now."
"He will be lookiug iuto accounts and
we are not prepared lor that at present,"
said the youth significantly.
"No," mused tue other, aid ���!i��"i f-ier
held a lengthy conversation, during
which Caroline was on the qui vive to
catch every word.
But they spoke guardedly, for all that
her outward appearance was one of such
indifference. Evidently it was of
enough importance to not trust her
" Yes, "said the senior at last, "that
will lie the best plan. We will secure
the bonds at the bank to put a good face
on things, and then he will not be likely
to look deeper nntil after the crisis. It
would ruin us lor him to withdraw his
share now. "
All this was G-eek to Caroline until
she remembered several communications she had taken which were in regard to speculations, and then it was
clear to her. The junior partner went
at once to the bank, and the old gentleman seemed somewhat worried.
Caroline made no sign, but made a
resolution, and when three o'clock, hour
for quitting work, came, she said calmly:
"I believe I must severmy connection
witb this office to-day. I wish to return ho ue '.'
"Ah���ahem I Do I understand you
mean to quit us at once."
"Yes. I wish to return hpme tomorrow morning," she returned iinper-
"This is rather sudden. Indeed, I do
not see how I can let you go nt once."
"Bnt you must, sir!" said Caroline

Chinese "transports hnve arrived safely
at Tai Kline in the Gulf of Peuhlli.
Prince Chin-;, the President of the
Tsung Li Yuiueii (1 bo Chinese Depitrt-
ineut of Foreign Affairs), lias been refused permission by the Emperor to
proceed to Corea. Prince China is 11
member of the Peace Party and the
strongest advocate in tliu body of
which he is President of the policy of
conceding the demands of the Japanese.
The Dowager Empress of China has
donated another tlitre million tuels
from her bntlnliiy (und for war expenses.
A representative of the United Pi-ess
has obtained uu interview with Capt.
Malum, of the cruiser Chicago, on the
recent battle between the Chinese unit
Japanese fleets. .Captain Malum said :
"The great .thinu with a fleet of war
vessels with' a lot of iitrniispoi'ts in
charge is to prevent, surprise or em-
biirriisinent. In this case there was a
surprise, and this fact to my mind
supplies a prominent lesson. It is
necessary iu attempting to convey
transports that the conveying fleet
should be decisively superior lo that
of tho enemy, but the Chinese wns
much embarrassed by tbe presence of
their transports. I um inclined tu
think that the Chinese Admiral formed
i 11 fleet so close in shore because be
was obliged to do so. If be had gone
out to meet the Japanese fleet, which
wus the proper course, be would have
uncovered tho mouth ol the river
into whicli lho transports had gone,
consequently he drew up close in
shore bv which movement he wns
tactically embarrassed in manoeuvring
If bis fleet bad been much larger than
the Jupanese,bo might havo advanced,
at the same time leaving a sufficient
number of vessels to bond oil a rush
which the Japanese might hnve made.
The whole nlTair illustrates the extreme difficulty attending an attacking
movement across the water unless you
havo control of tliu water absolutely.
Whether the Chinese succeeded in their
object i* does not appear, but tlie question is whether it was worth such a
risk for the sake of landing troops.
It certainly was bad management to
fight so close in shore, lor two ol tho
Chinese vessels bail not room to turn
and so went ashore, Tbnt is one reason why the Japanese did not try to
puss through the Chinese line, for they
1 would have got into shallow water
and became entangled, It wus a big
engagement for modern vessels, but I
see nothing yet to lend me to suppose
-that the engagement will point to the
reconstruction or remodelling of war
vessels. The details so fur are very
meagre. I do not know anything
about the manner of attack, but doubtless before long the Japanese will give
full information.    I do not even know
and understands what pure wool is and
appreciates exquisite finish buys the

slating that  in nn  interview to-day a
member  ol   the Chinese  Legation in
Berlin   declared   that   China cannot,
dare not, and  will  not give up Corea,
though the war  should last   30 years.

Galsworthy, the commander of the

the risk of attempting to carry- a groat
force Hcrosit water. As a general rule
such nil attempt is unsafe, nevertheless
the mere existence of a hostile fleet
docs not constitute such a deterrent
upon the resolute man who sees that
the object of his attempt is sufficient
to justifi the risk betook. To a naval
itiiin the most interesting thing will be
���0 know iu what order the Japanese
fleet -ipiu-oacbed the Chinese, whether
it wns concentrated upon part of the
Chinese line or spread out over the
whole line. I have no time to say
more, us I have too nuioH ship work
to carefully study the matter."
London, Sept. i!4.���A despatch to
the "Standard" from Berlin says thnt
advices have been received there from
Seoul ns follows: The news of the
great victory of tbe Japanese over the
Chinese at Ping Yang was received at
Corea's capital with every manifestation of joy. The Japanese flag was
carried through the streets to the
King's palace. The King nt once
telegraphed his congratulations to
General Count Yamagata, and also
sent an expression of his homage to
the Mikado, designating tho Jupniicso
as the liberators of Corea. The Mikado replied, addressing the King as his
friend and ally, expressing hope that
Corea would prosper now that she had
shaken off the Chinese yoke. It is
stated in these advices that the Japanese army, which is to march to Pekin
will lie accompanied by a naval squadron to the mouth of the Pei-Ho river,
in the Province of Pe-Chi-Li. The
army and tRe fleet will be in constant
touch with a view of having the fleet
assist in provisioning the army.
London, Sapt. 23.-The Times will
publish a despatch to-morrow morning
from Shanghai saying that the hulls
nnd batteries of the Chinese warships
Ting Yuen and Chen Yuen which were
engaged in the Ynlu light, nre uninjured. The Chinese operations at Ynlu
were directed by Major Van Hanneken,
who with eight volunteer officers
served splendidly and greatly inspired
the Chinese by their example. Messrs
Albrecht mid linffmnnn.slso engineers,
alone escaped injury. The wounded
are all doing well and will soon be
able to resume duty. The disaster to
the Chinese at Ping Yang was chiefly
due to tbo lack of co-operation between
the commanding officers, which is a
common fault in the Chinese army.
It is reported that a Russian fleet hns
assembled at Vladivostock prepared for
immediate nction. The transports of
the volunteer fleet as they arrive, are
being detained at Vladivostock.
