MINES AND MINING.
On hearing of the rich gold-silver-
copper strike on Bugaboo Creek, a
large party of prospectors immediately
left Golden for that district about the
bef-jinning of the week to locate .he
uew strike. A stick containing about
a hundred pounds of the surface crop*
pings was brought down on the
steamer Duchess last Wednesday, and
the sample la a beautiful one. There
are two loads���one five feet in width,
carrying ore throughout and assaying
high iu copper, silver and gold, while
the lead cropi out for nearly 3,000
feet. Tlie second lead Is reported, aa
being twenty feet iu width, showing
nine feet of surface ore. The samples
from the latter show it to be a yellow
oopper ore, with a white quartz matrix,
heavily stained with red oxide of iron,
The sinking of tho shaft on the
property of the Golden Placer and
Quartz Mining Company, on .Canyon
Creek, is progressing very satisfactorily, The company's manager, L. H.
Estell,-who was in town the middle of
the w-sek, reports tho shaft  as  down
judgment is mighty poor. In our
estimation the prohibition law in the
Prairie Province will  last   about   as
long as the proverbial snowball In .

Hon. Alex. Vidal, a satellite from
Sarnia, who holds down a seat in the
Senate Chamber, went on record the
other day as being opposed to restricting Chinese immigration, because it
was neither Christian nor British. If
Senator Vidal and other venerable
idiots in the Ottawa Senate were half
ns Christian or British us tbey would
have the world believe, they would
probably savvy that tlie principal
objection to Chinese is that they are
uot and never will be Christian or
British. Senator Vidal is a fossilized
fool, and ho should be sbot over the

This is a funny world and full
contradictions. Canada's sons are
helping to lick Kruger in South Africa,
one of the reasons of the trouble being
that the latter refused the ballot to
foreigners, while in Manitoba Hugh
John Macdonald is busy passing in
aot to prevent foreigners from having
tbe franchise. In China the Boxers
are trying to wipe ont the foreigners,
including our missionaries, while at
Ottawa a bill has been introduced to
increase the tax on all Chinese who
attempt to take np their residence

Interviewed by the Revelstoke
Board of Trade and Others.
Reyelatoka Harnld: Hon. "W. C.
Wells, M.P.P*, the new Commissioner
ot Lauds and Works, came up from
the south on Saturday. While here
he was busily engaged with Government officials and others all the evening, among whom President Brown
and the Board of Trade had their turn.
In the interview which followed and
at wbich Thos, Taylor, M.P.P., H. A.
Brown, W, M. Brown, I. T. Brewster,
J. M. Scott, C. P, Lindmnrk, It, Gordon und tho members of tbe local
pres-i were present, the case of tho
proposed wa-^onroad into tho Big Bond
district wat the subject cf discussion
nnd Hie arguments for the road were
presented bv the various members
present from different points of view
aod a copy of the memorandum, which
��F i-t to be attached to the petition was
handed to the Minister, It seemed to
be the general feeling that if we could
got 825,000 this next session to build
ibe road us far as Carnes Creek, it
would be a reasonably satiafactory
answer to our request. Mr Taylor
said that he thought the Ministers
whom he had recently seen in Victoria
were favorable to that proposition.
After hearing with great courtesy and
attention the wbole discussion Mr.
Wells said that for his part he was in
favor of a vigorous policy of development of the resources of the country
by road and trail building. His idea
was that a sum of two million dollars
should be borrowod to form a fund for
this purpose, and if bis proposal to
that effect was accepted by his col*
leagues and the House he thought that
Revelstoke might confidently expect
to see the Big Bond road built, As It
was now train time, after being tendered a hearty vote of thanks for the
patient and kindly hearing wbich he
had accorded the deputation, Hon.Mr.

Tbe Casualties Heavy*
London. July It).���Loid Roberts reports to the war oftlce under date of
Pretoria, July 12, as follows:
"Tbe enemy, having failed in their
attack upon our right rear, as mentioned in my telegram uf July 9, made a
uetermined attack upon our right flank
yesterday, and I regret to say sncoeeded
lapturing Nitrui's Nek, whioh was
garrisoned hy a Bquadron of the Scot's
Greys, with two guns of the Roynl artillery, and two companies of tbe Lin*
oolushire regiment. Tbe enemy attacked in superior numbers ut duwu,
aud seizing a hill commanding the
Nek, brought heavy gnu lire to bear
upon the small garrison,
A list of the casualties hns not been
received, bnt I fear they are heavy,
"Simultaneously, an attack was
inado on our outposts near Dnrdepoort,
north of the town,in which the Seventh
Dragoons wero engaged. The regiment
was handled with considerable skill by
Lieut. Ool. Low, und kept the enemy
in check until they retired on their sup-
ports, and would probably have suffered
hnt flight loss had not onr troops mis*
taken some Poors in the bushes tor onr
own men.
'Gen. Smith-Dorrien had a successful engagement with the enemy yesterday near Krugersdorp and inflicted
heavy low on them.
"Geu. Buller reports tbe Boers, who
were destroying his line of railway
near Faardekraal, wero driven off yesterday nfter a short aotion. "Gen.
Hart reports from Heidelberg tbat the
surrendering of Boer arms and ammunition continues in that distriot.
Loudon, July 13.���Lord Roberts' despatch, reporting still another unfortunate ocnrrenoe, throws a serions light
upon the state of affairs in South
Afrioa.
Instead of the surrender of all the
remaining Boers being imminent, as
recent telegrams bad hinted, it seems
tbey bave been making an attempt to
surround or capture Pretoria, It is
evident tbat Gen. Botha bas a considerable force, seeing that be is able to
press Lord Roberts' line at half a dozen
points around Pretoria, from the
Springs lo the oity, northward to Mid-
dleburg, and Dnrdepoort, and thenee
southward to Nitral's Nek, and Krugersdorp.
Lord Roberts omits to give the name
of thu commander concerned, giving
rise to the belief that worse remains to
be told. News has reached London that
Lord Roberts has been suffering from a
serions bowel complaint, and tbat Lady
Roberts was hurriedly summoned from
Bloemfontein.
The war otlice announces that Gen.
Buller reports that 069 prisoners, released by the Boers, have arrived at
Ladysmith.
THE CHINESE MILITARY
Said   to lie  Under the Direction of Europeans��� No News From Pekin.
Loudon, July 18. ��� A terrible
veil of silence enshrouds Pekin
and there is nobody but believes tbe
worst has happened. It is taken for
granted tbat all the powers bave exhausted every means to get direct news
from their legations and tbe faot that
their efforts have been in vain, leaves
but one interpretation.
Tbe day's news is again restricted to
the usual crop of untrustworthy Shanghai rumors, the most serious of which,
reported by the correspondent of the
Express, to the effect that Europeans
are directing the Chinese military operations.
Statements are in circulation in
Shanghai accusing tho Russians of indiscriminate slaughter of friendly
Chinese non-combatants, withont regard to age or sex It is asserted that
tbe Buddhists priests throughout the
empire are propagating Prinoe Tnan's
anti-foreign gospel
News ia circulating through the
Yang Tse volley that Gen. Ma has inflicted a crushing defeat upon the allies
at Tien Tsin, and that th? foreign army
bas beon cnt to pieces east of Pekin.
The a;tnal impotence for tbe moment
of tbe allied forces naturally gives oolor
to these stories, with tbe worst results.
Tbe Canton correspondent of tbe
Daily Telegraph, writing Jnly 11,
says: "Li Hung Obang has deoided
to remain here, and the Americau gunboat which was waiting to oouvey him
en route to Pekin will sail tomorrow."
Hamburg, July IS.���The Boers En-
halle announce that the Hamburg-
American line has leased four und the
North German Lloyd line six steamers
to tbe marine minister for transportation of 12,000 troops and ammunition
to China.

A SWINDLING GAME
Winnipeg, July 13���A new swindling
game is reported from Minnesota.. A
well dressed stranger calls on a farmer
and after being shown the farm expresses a desire to boy it, and offers a
good price, and if he strikes a bargain
pays down a snm, say %*00 by way of
illustration. Nothing farther is beard
from tbis man, but two weeks later a
man and woman stop at the farm bouse
for dinner. Tbe woman takes'a fancy
to the plaoe, aud thinks she must bave
it. They then offor the farmer $1,000
more than the flrst man offers, aud the
farmer decides tbat if he can st-core a
release from bis bargain he will let
them bave it. He then hunts np
stranger No. landoffeis to return his
$800, and in addition to pay bim $500
to be relieved from tbe bargain. Tbis
is satisfactory to the buyer, and be receives tbe money, Tbe second buyer
then makes a payment of $100, and
that is tbe last seen of tbem. Tbe
former Is out just $400 in oasb.

Chinese eastern arsenal ufter inflioting
great loss upon its defenders."
"The engagement lasted six hours,
and waa foogbt with great determination ou bath sides. The Chinese were
eventually to utilise tbe eheutlve guns
of tho fort abutting on the city walls

received an imperial.lecroeordering bis
immediate departure for Pekin, presumably to break the newsot the Pekin
tragedy to the European role, and, iu
bis usual role of negotiator with
Europe in difficult matters, to endeavor
to act as mediator and to avert the
veugeauoe of the powers. To add to tbe
grimness of this suggestion, all advices

allied forces*! aud the optimist Ohinese
rumors Unless reinforcements speedily
reach Tien T>in another disaster may
be expected.

By a. XanTllls Fewn.
"You are going away on some serious
business," said my wife as I entered
hurriedly. "And I am to put your things
ready io the portmanteau at once."
"Yes, and your own too."
"Oh," she cried joyously as she sprang
to nty arma, "I'm to go too? But what
Is tbe caa?, dear?" she asked.
"Soo uud re 1 who has been defrauding
quiet country clergymen and maiden ladles; getting them to Invest In a bogus
bank and ruining them. He has had a
loug iunlnga, aud I am put on to bowl
him out."
"Aud you will," said my wife proudly.
She bustled away, and I had my think
.before we started with a fair amount of
luggage, and wheu I tipped the guard of
the uight mall lie smiled, nodded confidentially and whispered as he locked
the door of the compartment:
"Not many passengers tonight, sir.
You.und your good lady can have tbe
compartment to yourselves,"
I hnd wired on to Wenton, so that
there was some one up at the hotel when
we reached the Bleepy little town at 4
In thu morning. Here we had a rest,
rose again at 10, breakfasted, and at
midday we were well In tlie middle of
the lake district, for my Instructions were
that the scheming geiitlemun I was to
entrap was strougly suspected of having
gone tbere.
"Looking for the needle in the proverbial Ulo of hay, Olty," I said, "but
cbunce helps ono sometimes, and if we
don't cntch bim"���
"Oh, look at that lovely lake, dear,"
she cried, pointing out ot tbe coffee room
window at the glancing water and the
steep blue fells beyond, "You will have
to work, of course. But Isn't It ulcer to
work lu a beautiful place liko this?"
"Better and better, Mrs. Honeymoon,"
1 whispered. "Excellent Ob, this Is
perfect," I said, for she looked confused
and blushed.   "Talk about acting!"
"I am not acting, dear. It's quite
natural, and do, pray, go on with your
lunch; that dark geutleman and bis wife
are watching us."
"How do you know It Is his wife?" 1
said, without turning my head, for 1 had
noted the occupants of tbe room at each
table aa we entered.
"Because she is not dark, as hc Is,
and sho bos on quite a thick uow wedding ring."
"Good girl," I said. "You are growing wonderfully observant."
"Oh, nonsense! But are we going to
stay at hotels all the time we arc down
here?"
"Most likely," I said, and I weut on
With my lunch and my thinkings 'In-
whilo, for tltere wus uo one iu the hotel, as far na I could eee, at nil answering the description or the mun I wanted,
and there was no one who could by any
possibility be made up or disguised.
We bad a row on the bike that afternoon, had 5 o'clock ten nt unnther hotel,
returned to our own dinner, uud In the
evening I only just looked In nt the billiard room Wfore having one cigar in the
smoking room, where our dark neighbor
was taking au after dinner nap.
We spent the nest day thew, for I felt
that 1 could uo no more thnn dawdle
about the district, trusting greatly to
chance. Aud it would have been very
pleasant If wc had hnd nothing to do
and no anxious thoughts. But ot these
I had plenty.
Then we took our Bents by the coach
and Imd a couple of dnys nt High Water and two more ut (llassinere, besides
indulging tn excursions. Still no luck.
Several people we luul met nt our first
hotel were doing precisely the same ub
we were, so thnt we mnde acqiimintunees
after the British Ice Imd thawed a little,
the elder tourists 1 rent iug us benevolently, tbe younger being disposed to smile,
for Oily wns thoroughly enjoying her
trip, and her manners were���well, no
matter. Let It sutllcc that tbey were
perfectly nnturn), and people were particularly nice to her.
Bnt every one was not nice, and It was
my wife who opened my eyes to tbe fact.
It was nt Whurfmere, where 1 bnd
some thought of being on the right scent
at last, au invalid staying in - the hotel
who put me on the qui vivo at once, for
he was so like my mnn would be If be
had closely shaved and hnd his hair
cropped very short. He was In the coffee room at dinner, and I was feeling so
comfortably convinced that I was "getting wanner" tbnt 1 had ordered a pint
of champagne to clear my head when
some one arrived Lite, and my wife bent
over her plate as the new arrivals were
shown to a table -at tbe otber end of ths
room,
"Those nasty people again, dear," she
snld. "I did hope we had left them behind for good."
"Tbat nigger?" 1 said coolly. "Yes, I
was right I thought be was following
ns about."
"You noticed It, dear?"
"Yes; dark moth fluttering about tbe
candle, and his wife doesn't like It"
"Ohl   You see everything, denr."
"Wish I could," I replied. "But I believe���don't make any sign���my man's In
the room."
"Oh!" she whispered.
"Yes, I'm sure of It"
"And shall you take him tonight?"
"No; I'll leave it till morning. Have
you any Ice, .waiter?" 1 said aloud, and
soon after I was sipping my wine softly
and feeling very much at case, but only
to be dampened when my man rose from
table and left the room.
"What's the matter, dear?" said my
wife, wbo could always read my Impas
sive -countenance���ns I thought ft
"No go." I snld. "I'm all wrong. That
ts not my man." "
I wns so distrusted that we left the
Whnrfmere hotel next day and were
driven to Kite's Head, but still no luck,
and 1 felt so hopeless that the next day
we went to our rery -comfortable quarters at Lake's Head, by tbe falls. Here
visitors were more plentiful, and my
hopes rose again, fell again and by the
second evening were stationary. Just
before dinner, as I expected,'our West
Indian friend and bis lady arrived, and
my wife looked daggers.
"Ob, that man!" sbe said.   "He Is following us about shamefully.   What shall
we do?"
"Nothing," I said.   "Ut him follow."
"But his wife seems to hate me, dear,
aud it makes it so unpleasant"
"Let tbe Idiot hate her husband. It
would be more sensible."
That evening, for the flrst time, our
dark friend offered me a cigar In the
smoking room,
"Oue of my own," he said; "from my
estate In Cuba."
"Indeed!" I said.   And I smoked and
prnlsed tt.
"You find It too strong?" he said.
"Oh, not   I think It exquisite."
Ho smiled, showed his teeth and lay
back In his chair, to begin trimming bis
nails, chatting to me the while about bis
estate and the beauty of Havana till
bedtime, trying hard to ingratiate himself and saying bow charmed he was tn
meet us again.
When I went to bed that night, it
seemed to mc that I had smoked a cigar
which did me good, and the next mom*
ing at breakfast I noted tbat my new
friend came down, accordiug to his cus1
torn, about ten minutes later than bU
wife.   I had observed it before.
After breakfast I lit a cigarette, strolled out of tbe hotel and Into the chemist's shop In the blgb street, where I refilled my cigar and cigarette cases and
made another purchase or two.
That night after dinner I went up to
our bedroom while my wife was in the
drawing room and then Investigated tbe
luggage of two people in their bedrooms
before descending, unseen by tbe chambermaids, to have another of my new
friend's cigars, laughing to myself the
while to find how eager he was to be
friendly with cigars and brandies and
sodas,
Tbat ntght when we retired Oily begged me to go nway from the hotel next
day, and 1 promised her I would If matters turned out as I hoped.
I hardly slept a wink for thinking of
my task, though 1 believe I looked as
usual when we went down to breakfast.
But my wife did not, for her eyes looked
red, and she complained of a headache.
"You will go somewhere else today,
dear?" she said.
"Walt and see," I replied shortly.
We went down, my dark friend's companion beiug already tu her place, nnd
she bowed stlttly us we took our scats.
Tben I noticed thnt my wife hardly
touched her breakfast, while I hastily
swallowed a cup of tea and n bit nf dry
toast, till I saw our geutlemnn friend enter and bow to us before taking his place
opposite his Indy, who looked at him
sharply and leaned forward aud snld
something to him which mude him half
rise. But he sunk down again aud bent
over bis plate.
My heart began to bent heavily and
then very slowly nnd regularly.
"Oily,"' 1 said iu the most matter of
fact way, "my man's iu the room now."
"So you suld before," she replied pettishly.
"Yes; but this time I'm right. Now,
look here. I'm going to take him wben
be rises from breakfast. You will see
that his wife does uot go up to her
room."
"I?"
"Yes, and It she resists call the waiters to your help."
All fell out as I expected. Our dark
friend was seized with uose bleeding directly after, clapped his handkerchief to
bis face and rose, his wife following.
But ee they reached the door 1 followed
and proffered my help.
"Oh, tt Is nothing," he said hastily.
"This wretched climate."
"Don't apologize, James Simpson," I
said.
He started violently, and his hand
went toward his pocket, but I pluued
him tn on instant
"No foolery!" I cried.   "I am armed."
Aud I thrust bim back Into a chair just
as I felt hands on my shoulders for a
moment ere tbey were snatched nway.
"What does this mean?"
"A warrant for your arrest.    You're
my prisoner, uad the game's up."
"Help!" he cried.   "Tbis man Is mod!"
"No; you are," I said as 1 clapped ou
the handcuffs,  "mad   to trust  to that
stain.   Tbe acid I put In -four wash huml
Jug last night has pretty well takeu It all
off.    Look bere, sir; a dark gentleman
such as you assumed to be always bas
bluish nails to show  bis black  blood.
Yours fall in tbat particular."
He gave up like a lamb, but bis Indy
was furious, aod I fouud afterward that
It was her bands lhat had been upon my
shoulders, aod my wife was holding a
tiny revolver she bad snatched away.
Tbat afternoon wo were well oo our
way hack to town, with a couple of local
constables to guard agaiust my prisoner's escape, and next day my chief said
the work bad been well done.���Bu&alo

London, Jnly 11,���-No authentic
news from Pekin, is still Ihe burden of
the dispatches from the Far Bast and
although the disposition is to believe
tl.e optlmistio reports trom Ohinese
Bonrces, no r al confidence is possible
until the legsstions, if they are still In
existence, are permitted to communicate with tbeir governments.
Aocoiding to a speoial Ohe Foo dispatch the fighting around Tien Tsin
ou the 8rd and 4th instants was the
severest yet experienced. The British
losses alono wore SO killed or wounded.
The Ohinese had 75,000 men attacking
simultaneously from the west, north
and east aud made excellent praotice
with over 100 guns. The defenders
numbered 14,000 witb soant supplies,
and it waa only the presence of the
newly arrived Japanese and Russian
guns that-prevented a disaster. One
Kuislan oompany of infantry numbering 190 men had 1 IS killed and wonnded The German contingent also
suffered heavily. By the evening of
the 4th the situation waa very critical.
The allies narrowly escaped total defeat.
Providentially, when things mere at
their worst, a torrential rainfall com*
pelted the Obineae to retire. On July 6,
Ihe min having abated, the Ohinese renewed the attack, opening fire on Tien
Tsin with two batteries of four-Inch
guns, but tbe allies, aided by two of H.
M. S. Terrlble's 4.7 inob guns, succeeded in silencing the Ohinese artillery alter eight honr.' of fighting.

Admiral Alexieff has anlved here and

about 10,000 men, including 800 Japanese wbo arrived yesterday. Airange-
ments are being made to send all the
women and ohildren to Japan by way
of Taku and Ohe Foo.
Shanghai, Jnly 10.���Tbe ohief difficulty of the allied foroes at Tien Tsiu
Is the absence of an adequate water
supply. The oondition of tbe river is
pestilential. The panic among tho
Ohinese in the southern provinces is
completely stopping trade and mest of
the native cotton mills are closed.

If hy the nee ot n bit of slang you
cuu express in one word whnt tt would
otherwise require ten words of plnln
English to sny, why, then, wiy I, hy nil
menus use tlie slang, for It saves time,
nnd. with the exception of the favored
few whose whole purpose in living Is to
kill time, wc nre nil bent ou saving all
the time we enn. The only slang I ob*
jeel to Is the slung thnt rcpluces one
word hy another precisely ns long nnd
not n whit easier to sny. My objections hnve nlrendy heen made privately
to a woman who went shopping with
me that hot day we had during the
week. I forget whleh duy it was. She
Is tu'w to the town, so I had to show
her nhout tlie shops. I wore my feet
to tlie hone that day. She dragged me
from the ribhon counter to the bargain
counter, from tho nrt needlework department hack ngnln to the place
where they sell pins and dreds bnild
ami iron wnxers nnd patent curl papers. When I thought thnt one mere
mortal could endure no more, she said
to me:
"Now. Just one thing more. I must
hnve a plain lid."
1 led the wny to tho house furnishing
department, nnd 1 personally explained
ber desire to the salesman.
"This Indy wants to sec some plnln
lids," I explained. The Indy was some
distance behind tne, but sho arrived beside me Jnst na the salesman said
suavely:
"Lids, madam.   What kind, plense?"
Tlie Indy turned as red as the poppy
flower.
"Well, of all the gumps," she said to
me with the brutal frankness of an old
nnd tried friend. "You cortnlnly nre
dense. 1 don't wnnt hnrdwnre. I want
a hnt."
Now, by the shade of everything
Bhndowy, whnt conceivable sense is
there In cnlllng a hot a lid? However,
I revenged myself. I persuaded her to
buy a hnt that adds ten years to her
age nnd n whole con to her complexion.

The Idol's Eye, Wang, and the Fencing
Master, by the lloston Lyrics.
The coming engagement of the Boston Lyrlos in Winnipeg at the Winnipeg Theatre for Exhibition week will
be a notable event. It will be the appearance of a great company of artists
in three royalty operas tbat will appeal
to every taste.
The Idols eye is one of the most expensive compositions in the musical
market. It Is, however,well worth the
price paid, as it has a strong attractive
commercial value.
The party of Abel Oonn played hy

greatest work. Mr. Knnkel playi

Damayanti, Miss Bertha Davis, Mara-

The opera la filled with grand
ohorns-is and snpurb marches by the
daughters of the soldiers in Natly Hussar nni forms.	
A Story of Amos Cammiifi,
One summer a number of years ago
Amos Cununlngs passed two weeks
on a pilot bont nnd took Ernest .lar-
iold, the author of "Mickey Finn
Idylls," with him for company. One
day a great storm arose, and the pilot
boat was tossed about on the waves
like a chip. Every minute a wave
would dash over the deck aud threaten
to carry everything away nnd swamp
the boat Qummlngs aud Jarrold were
in thu littlo cabin, the former lying
In a bunk Intently reading a book ou
the French revolution. Jarrold poked
bis head out to look at the storm,
when a mountain of sea water fell
with a boom on tho deck and filled his
eyes with spray. Tbe boat gave a
fearful lurch and careened uutll It
seemed that sbe must turn completely
over.
"This is awful, Amos," said Jarrold.
"I'm going to put ou a life preserver,
for I don't think the boat can stuud
It many minutes longer."
"Oh, keep quiet, and let me read,
Mickey," said Cummlugs, never lifting
his eyes from tbe pnge. "The men
ou this boat draw a regular salary to
keep her afloat."��� Saturday Evening

Bellairs Will Commit Suicide.
"Bellairs is starving!" This startling headline to an article appeared in
last Saturdays issue of the Spokane
Chronicle   and   was   the   subject   of
liscussion among many of Bellairs'
old acquaintances in this city. Since
be left Rossland nearly a year ago
K. C. B. has tasted muoh of tho
bitterness of life in the City or the
Falls. His long stay in the Medical
Lake Insane Asylum, from which he
was recently discharged as cored, and
into whioh haven of unsound miud
many think he should never have been
committed, has been telling on him
greatly. Since his release he hus been
endeavoring to raise funds for tho purpose of publishing  a book   entitled:
'The Most Infamous Fraud Ever Perpetrated hy the Brain of Man, the
Lunacy Asylums of America," the
proceeds to be used in instituting
agaiust the State a damage suit to the
tune of ��5,000,000. But the ono-time
prince of the London stoek brokers,
editor of tho London Bulletin and
honorary member of the Johannesburg
Stock Exchange has failed to raise
the pittance necessary to carry out his
project. ��� Kenneth ffariugtou Bellairs
is in want. He is doing nothing to
earn a livelihood in Spokane. The
little belongings of value which he
had at one time, he fell out of the
window, resulting in his being declared of unsmind mind and sent to
the insane asylum, have been nil sold
at a sacri6ce. and judging from the
following note which he left at the
Chronicle office he is in bad straits: ���
Please print. Having had all my
cash stolen fnm me and my poods, by
the officials of this state ov otders, and
having sold all I could find at five per
i.ent. of cost to me, I am now living
(literally) on dry bread, and my next
course is said."
Is this, then, to be tho end of the
one time brilliimt financier and journalist, that made London start le thirty
yours ago with his manipulations of
rho stock marker., and in a pamphlet
that cost the writer thousands of
pounds to produce, proving that the
Iii bie contained many disciepaucies? ���
