Ths hearing of the charge Against
James Hughes for th�� alleged murder
of Alexander Macaulay nt Tete Jauns
Cache on June 12th last, was held at
the Courthoss at Golden on Tuesday
lust before J. E. Griffith, Esq , 8.M.
Mr.Thos. O'Brien dofended theaccused.
Prisoner pleaded not guilty, The
Court was crowded.
Dr. Taylor was the 8rst witness,
nnd stated lis left Golden for Tete
Jaune Cache on July Hist and made
post mortem on body of Macaulay on
Aug.-l7th. He described the wounds
found on the body, which whs tbou
much "doconi posed. The I juries
were   probably   caused by it gunshot.
To Mr. O'Brien.-1 found a wound
which was not caused by tho ahet. It
was an incision wound, about an loch
and a half in length orer
the nbdomen and flesh wound
would not have caused death except by
blood poisoning. The wound In the
breast-bone was sufficient (o cause
death. The wounds In the head were
nlso sufficient to cause death. Found
no bullet.
J. W. Evans stated. On Jnne 19th
while we wert working in our garden
at Stnrvaticn Camp, about 12 o'clock
In tho day, Honry Hultius and Jos.
lloatyn came there and told us about
A lick Macaulay being shot at the
mouth of Swift Current Creek. Price
und I went to Macaulay'a Camp, and
arrived at the Creok about 8 p.m. Did
not go to see Macaulay at once, Had
9'ipper with the Edmonton party.
Then weut to our winter cabin two
miles ut> canyon to got soino medicine
witli which to treat the wounded man.
Got back to Macaulay's cainp about 11
p m. Macaulay recognised me as soon
ue he saw me. Price was there and
we dressed the wound Next morning
I took away both Macaulay's and
Hughes's guns which were in Hughes's
bod, and both gnus Here empty. Went
hue!; to my camp and on returning
Cook told me Hughes wanted to see
ine. Went to Hallius'd lent to hmi

the Court. ~7 would also afford hii
protection in case uf interference. He
said he would and that I could take
his word for it that he would cause us
uo trouble. Wanted *him to lunve his
horses there but ha wished to bring
thein out, and we brought them. At
12 o'clock next day (Juno -1st) started
out. Arrived ut Donald J .ily 8th.
H -nded prisoner over io Officer SMr-
���r,ett.: On July tfUt UU Golden with
Dr. Taylor. Arrived nt Swift Current
ou evening of Kith. Kuieel the body
ou tin'following dny nud idonliifcd it
as that of Alexander Macaulay.
To Mr. O'Brien. - Met Mae.utUy first
in March 1898., Macaulay was a qnur*
ler-kecfi and did not know much of
his temperament. I believe Price extracted the bullet, hut cannot say
whether it was before or after death.
Hid no conversation wiih Macaulay
as he could not speak. Hughes came
will) *-s to Golden voluntarily.
Charles P. Price gave evidence simi-
av to that given by tho witness Evans,
adding:-Macaulay and I wintered
together . in 1897-08. I tttlte a littlo
medicine to tho mountains with me in
'case of sickness ur emergency for my
own use. He requested that I should
go over Bii'l see what I could do for
him. ~I went to the camp and fonnd
Macaulay lying on beughs spread on
the ground iu his tepee. I knelt down
beside hiin to apeak to him whon the
prisoner came in and also knelt down.
I looked round and said 'I suppose you
are the man who aro responsible fer
this." He told me he was. I sent Mr.
Evans to our camp at Swift Current
for medioine. After his return 1 proceeded to examlno Macaulny's wounds
and found him vtry weak from loss of
blood und lack of no-irfshmont. Hu
witi in a bad state having laid aome
Witness continued:   I administered
rorphiue, On examining tbo wound
found maggots there nnd causing
Intense pain. Not being able to wohIi
thorn bnt I put a poultice of flux seed
meal ou lho wounds in tha face and
ohest. Next meriting I made a pair of
nippers out of an old pair of scissors
aud used a carbolic solution. Subsequently washed the wouuds with permanganate of potash and potash
solutions, aud poulticed at before.
Macaulay complained of the bullet
hurting him and wauted me to cut it
out, Pound tha abdomen much swollen and poulticed, also used ladauum
to remove pain. Thia reduced swelling and by next morning I could feel
the full form of tbe bullet under the
aktn. Procured a shoe-knife which I
���harponed well and disinfected. Made
���light incision immediately over bullet.
Found large Quantity of pus and re-
goulticed, after which I co.ild see the
ullet and removed it. et The tongue
was cut nearly half off by the bullet
and it was impossible to get him to j
swallow any nourishment. I reoog-
nise the bullet produoed as that which
I removed. I kept the wounds poulticed and washed tbem night and'
morning which was aU that oould be!
done. Maoanlay died on the night ot
the 24th In the presence of his wife,
Moyes, Cook, and H, Schwlosgood.
Brought, Mrs. Macaulay and party to
Golden and returned with Dr. Taylor
to hold a post mortem. We exhumed
Ute body on the 17th August and I
identified it as the body of A. Macaulay.
To Mr. O'Urien.-^Firat met Macaulay 15th Sept. 1*497, and was with hiin
much during 1898. I found hiin generous and sensitive in disposition and
we got along well together. I swear
I never made any statement at Tata
Juune Cache that tho man who shot
Macaulay hnd saved me the trouble of
doing so. I never knew or heard that
Macaulay had held up men ou the Edmonton trail and rob'jo'l them of their
supplies nnd I swear X never said ho
desorved what ho get for the way he
had treated .mon on those trails.
Mrs. Maaafclay gave evidence in tho
Croe language and this was interpreted
by Mrs. Conner. 3hc said: -My husband first met thu prisoner nt Jasper
House. Hughes had a separate outfit
and followed us to tiie Cache. We
were three weeks on the way, Hughes
being with us all the time. My husband caught two beaver on the way.
On the way the prisoner got quarreling with my husband now and then.
They were camped three weeks at
Swift Current, nnd during that time
they quarrelled about a pack saddle.
The old man then threatened to kill
my husband. I heard him do si. Ou
the day thoy were breaking camp they
quarrelled about tbe two beaver skins.
My husband brought the horses to
camp. Hughes onid, '-Where are the
beaver skins?" Macaulay said. "Did
you kill ihera?" We were packing up
then. Hughes said nothing. My husband wus saddling the Inst horse and
cinching him up. I was standing between the horse and my husband. I
saw my husband throw up bis hands
and fall down and I went to him. I
hud heard a shot and looked round ami
so.w prisoner with a gun standing at
tho door of his tent. I ran to the
prisoner aud he told me to go away,
I said, ''Jim, Jim, what did you do
that to my husband for?" My husband then sat up and motioned mo to
go to him and I weut. Prisoner then
ran to got my husband's gun aud pulled tho cover off. My husband beckoned to him to come over and prisoner
had the two guns ou his arm when he
went over. My hiinbtud offered lo
ahak'd'hands with him and prisoner
did so. and took the guns buck to his
tent. I told my husband to lie down
and helped him to when; the tepee
was. I made n bed for him theru. 1
wanted tko prisoner to help me but he
would not.      He   camo   in for a little

five days before (be other men came.
I think my husband lived twolvo days
wttorrtte-etioottng. ** fiv whs buried
close to tho camp. Moyes, Price.
Cook and Henry were there then.
To Mr. O'Brien. -Prisoner did not
help tne to get my tiusb.iuj to the
tepee, but put lhe blankets down. My
husband carriei a small knife. Mj
husband did not accuse me uf shooting
him. I did not tell Hughes my bun-
band charged mo with the shooting.
My hnsbaud and Hughes had a quanvl
tho day beforo the shouting. My husband did not attack Hughes with a
knife that day and I did not stop my
husband from stabbing Hughe?. I
.ouly heard one shot the day of the
"shooting. My children were al tho
topoe poles, Never heard my husband
thce.iteu to kill Hughes. My husband
never threatened to kill the prisonor,
but I heard him threaten to kill my
husband. Mv hnsbaud did not beat
me ths day beforo the shooting but
once slapped me on the face. It was
mv fault. He slapped uie again ufter
ne. was shot, bruiiuse * he conld not
speak and I could not understand him.
I never bled from the nose and mouth
as the result of the slap. I was sideways to * he old man when shot was fired
My husband would never pick up a
quarrel first. My huabnnd never beat
me except the time stutwd. My husband bought the grub for the trip for
his own use aud did not hold up men
ou b�� trail that X kaow of.
Duti Noyes gave evidence that when
ho came to Swift Current he saw Mrs,
Macaulay waving her hands to hiin to
go over, lie went over, She was
crying. Asked . her what wss the
matter. She said old Jim had shot
her husband. Went, to the camp aud
saw the old1 mau standing abuut tun
yards from tho topee. Prisoner said,
"Go hi and see the hoy, l'veshot him."
Weut in uud saw .ijscuuhty. Hu held
ont hi.-s littud to sit aw hands. I took

The Red Line*
The Bed Line at Windermere ha*
unfortunately got into the same position as most other good prospects. It
is tied up with complications that will
be hard to straighten aut. While Hon.
C, H. mclutosh holds the bond on the
claims of the group, mesars. Starbird
and Collett, the former bondees, hold a
fraction an the summit of the mountain
and as tbat gives them their ansa in
depth it would be impossible to operate
the ground properly without the acquisition of this fraction, which is doubtless held at a big figure. Then .again
P. Larsen, one of the owners of tho
Red Line has ns vet given no bond on
his interest in tho property and wont
do so for less than $50,000, so that tho
chances of this promisiug prospect
being oporated aro vory remote.

Customs Collections.
Ottawa, Sept. 3.���-Returns available
yesterday show tbat the customs revenue of Canada for August reached
what is said to be the highest figure
ever collected in one month In her history, the amount is 13,631.870, whioh
is $512,073 more than for August of
last year. Last month there was shown
a decrease from July, 1898, on account
of tbe abnormal rush lo Canada then of
German und Belgian goods to catch the
26 per oeut preference, whioh existed
but for a single month. This month's
gain, however, more than balances up
Ihe deficiency.
The information in the bands of tbe
department is yet to show in what lines
these gains were made tbis month, bnt
seems to point to an increase generally
iu importations for thn fall and winter
trade, relying ou the continuance of
tbe present prosperity.

[Copyright, UM, by th. Author.)
By 9 o'clock the roar of musketry had
slackened to an occasional volley which
was prolonged by a few scattering shots,
a little flurry of stars, a spark here, a
flash there, nntil silence and darkness
settled on tho valley.
Some time In the night Henry Price
came baok np the hill in the mood of a
man on whom a slight has been pnt In
his heart he envied the dead and dying
lying between the pickets in the dark
valley. Because he had come ont unscathed he knew that there was another
day of the battle before him. In hia
highly wrought condition he waa unable to rest Others slept as if nothing
hail happened. Even the patient horses
dozed iu swaying lines against the film
of smoke that overhung the charred
timbers of the honse and started in
their dreams to breathe heavily, creaking a saddle hero and rattling a headstall there.
Henry Price wss neither glad nor
sorry to see the rosy light of morning.
Perhaps even then he saw only the red
gloom of the sunken road as he stretched
his stiffened limbs and muttered: "It
was my work. I did it."
His physical strength sustained him
Wonderfully in the rongh work of the
day that followed, dnring which the
stubborn lines were forced back from
ridge to ridge until the third evening
fouud the whole army in orderly retreat. Through it all Henry had kept
his poet at the muzzle of the gun. He
showed no sign of weariness. He seemed
dazed rather than tired. After two
sleepless nights and two suoh eveutfnl
days it may reasonably be donbted if
he was capable of subdividing the time
that had passed since the dawn of his
horrible self conviction in the glare of
the burning farm buildings.
Hehad lost nothing of the presentiment that he was fighting his last battle, and when the battery made its final
stand in the afterglow of the sunset,
before leaving the field that waa already
lost, he sponged and rammed in a mechanical Way and sprang outside the
wheel like a well drilled automaton.
The honr was upon him. Every inch
of his body was numb with the expectation of a blow. His scalp and his extremities were cold. He was a doomed
man set against a wall, awaiting the
snre volley, only the file of riflemen was
not yet told off and there remained to
him the merciful relief of activity..
"When his qnick eye caught the dribble of gray figures running and dodging
through the hollowB of the next field,
multiplying among the scrubby cedars
and swarming behind tho stone wall,
he recognised his grim executioners.
He heard the cries for donble canister,
and laughed as he drove the two tin
cylinders into the black throat of the
gun. A little patter of bullets peppered
the wheels, and some puffs of dnst leaped np from the ground aa the gray men
sprang over the wait
He stood there at his post in the
white smoke as the old gnns thundered
by half battery aud swept tbe field with
alternate volleys of iron balls.   As the
tont and batted   NV.nie.it full hn.-lr tha
cannoneer, leaped on the wheels with
yells   of defiance���all  exoept  Henry
Price.    Hi. plight wa. no.  noticed a.
first in tbe wild excitement followed by
the Bweep ot galloping limbers, but in
replacing the equipments he was found
on the ground, grasping the rammer
staff in his blackened hands.
"I expected it," he gasped, and as he
released the stall he clutched at his wet
and soiled shirt front. ' 'It hurts me to
breathe. Don't touch me���-I'm done
There waa no surgeon at hand, bnt
in spite of his remonstrances he wss
lifted on to a limber chest and supported there by a comrade as the victorious
battery left the field He was resigned
to his fate. He had no desire to live. It
was the vengeance of God demanded by
that skeleton band extended from the
shallow grave by the roadside. One
memorable night had intervened between the night of bis conviction and
the night of his expiation. Was there a
mysterious fatality about the nnmber
He spoke In broken sentences, for tbt
rosd wm rongh and the heavy gun carriage, drawn by six powerful horses,
rambled relentlessly over tbe stones,
only swerving once with the column to
avoid the bine forms which suddenly
appeared in great numbers lying amai-
ingly still on the hillside.
It was dusk when the battery floundered through the ran above the wreck
of the old stone bridge, and the wonuded man on the limber was tossed like a
leaf as the heavy wheels ground over
ammunition chests and boxes of bread
which had been shaken from the wagon
trains in the hurried retreat.
The companion who had supported
Henry thus far managed to keep him
npright on the folds of the big canvas
that cushioned the limber chest, bnt the
jolting was too mnch for him. At ���
sign from thn sergeant deaf Spence, who
was huge nni good natnred, dismounted, and having placed Price In the saddle walked like a great, faithful dog at
his side.
"It's no use, Spence, lugging a dead
man along with the march," said Henry. "For God's sake, lay me in the
fence corner there and leave me to my
fate." He stretched ont his open hand as
he spoke toward the place that he coveted on a bank by the roadside.
"I'll bet ye dot" said Spence, clawing a'plece of navy plug from the bottom of his pocket "Take a big chaw,
Henry. I knowed ye wanted it"
Henry waved the proffered tobacco
away with disgust, tnd despairing of
making himself understood by the deaf
man rested hia eyes resignedly on the
long line of drivers swaying and tossing
in front, nntil tbeir bobbing heads were
lost in the dnst and gloom of the advance. He noticed languidly tho parallel battery sharing the road with his
own and the shadowy lines of infantry
marching rapidly In the fields at either
side, with a toothing, rhythmical clatter of loose equipments, their bayonets
catching an occasional glint of moonlight. H e wat swept along in the irresistible swirl of tht current, for the
sky itself seemed to lie retreating with
the defeated army. The .scurrying
clouds, flying before the light wind
wen chasing each otber in ragged, derisive battalions abovt the hurrying
columns, as If they wen racing with
the jaded men or fleeing In afftight
from the gha.tly scenes on tht great
He felt no pain 1Mb hit wound, hat
a gnat wearintta came ever him.
he saw a. dark nasi of figures In tht
telghborlng field, Intermingling like
objects in a swirling tidy, crowded to
-tne tide by the strong flowing current
Then he taw the dtrk lints of teems
streaking the slope beyond and kntw
that the shadowy men* wen planting
gunt to cover the retreat
The big deaf man was lumbering
heavily at his tide with one htnd on
the horse's bridle. The driven wen
swaying in their saddles tnd nodding
itrangely over the creaking collars. A
bowing cap came in contact with the
neck of a horse and fell off into the
road. The drowsy heat, tbe rumble of
the carriages and the tramp of many
feet had their effect on the wounded
man, who was no longer conscious of
the stifling dnst or of the rank smell of
the damp fields mingled with tho salty
odor af the galled teams. He waa not
disturbed by the occasional halts, when
the men slid dowu to tbe ground and
slept with their.hpiide on the saddles, or
hy the extra scrambling and clatter of
hoofs when a general and staff with
headquarters flags and cavalry escort
hurried by to the front.
It may be that he was dreaming of
Jim and tliat his vision had brought
him to the death scone, when he lurched
and would( huve fallen but for the strong
arm .of Spruce, which pnt him back
into the saddle aud remained with a
precautionary curve around bis back.
Tho deaf man muttered an oath at
his own drowsiness. He had been
munching hard bread at tho moment to
koep himself awake. When the column
halted, tbey wero close to a littlo stream
where tho road dipped between two
bills. The nmcll of the water reminded
Spence that ho wus thirsty, and he led
the horse up the bed or the rivulet nntil they wore out of the orowd, with
tho intention of taking a drink. Instead of doing so, he eat down on the
ground and was overcome in a twinkling by the annum of sleep ho had been
fighting so long. The horse put down
his head and drank through his gur*
gling bits and then betook himself to
cropping tho grass which grew conveniently at a level witb bis shoulder.
In good timo Henry Price, unsupported, toppled over on the sido toward
the bank, but with the instinct of a soldier who had slept in tho saddle before
ho clasped tho horse about the neck and
let himself easily to tbe ground. To
breathe out bin life undisturbed was the
one boon he bed craved from his deaf
keeper, who now muttered in his sleep
more oblivions than ever. It waa not so
painful to be shot or so dreadful to die
as he had believed, and with this grateful thought which he half shaped into a
prayer of thanksgiving Henry Price
lapsed into unconsciousness.
The drowsy columns moved on, lurching and dozing through the close August'night, trampling the dust of the
road with blistered feet and beating
parallel paths in the fields. As tho houn
passed the flying clouds thickened into
a blackness tliat obscured the moon, and
then came tho warm rain to make the
march and the steaming clothing af the
soldiers heavier than ever.
The two men by the rivulet wen not
disturbed by tbe rain, nntil the horse

The "gnat doctor" bad been called to
the country teat ot the sick mUliousire,
tnd, arriving just as the crisis had set In,
was able to tell the family a few houn
later that he had ssved his patient's life.
Scarcely could wife and children do
enough to express their gratitude. They
praised the great doctor as If be had
been deity. Would not he accept their
hospitality fer a short time? It wonld
make them immeasurably happy and
proud. No, the treat doctor was In a
harry, for on the morrow there began In
Moscow a medical congress which he
must not miss, as the health and happiness ef a great many people in all parts
ot the world depended on the exploitation
ot certain discoveries which he was going
to announce.
So the best sleigh wet taken ont of
the shed. The blooded horses which tht
proprietor reserved for his own personal
use were none too good for him. and, covered with precious furs, a hamper with
delicacies under the test, his excellency
started out lata the night As he drove
from tbe castle yard the steward ran
after him. "A brace of pistols, worshipful sir! One never knows what may happen. The coachman also Is well armed."
The sleigh bad proceeded only a few
versts when suddenly the hones stopped,
reared aud plunged. Whip aud words
railed to make the brutes go a step farther. Then a man stepped from the shadow of a tree and. uncovering a lantern,
"Brother," he said, raising his hat,
"can you spare me a seat? 1 am bound
for the village, when a poor patteut of
mine ia in the throes ot death."
The doctor recognized the young physician whom he' had met In the castle, but
who had seemed to vanish into thin air
after the authority from the capital had
made his much heralded appearance.
"Step lu," he said, with all the condescension tt hit command, hut be could
have kicked the fellow for asking bin.
The youug doctor tested himself by the
professor's left aud the hones resumed
their furious pace. "J would deem It a
great favor, brother, if you would atop a
moment when we arrive In tbe village
and take e look tt the old woman. Maybe
you could prolong her life," he said after
awhile.   -
The great doctor did not care to hide
his annoyance. "I haven't a minute to
span," he grumbled. "Net a minute.
Don't esk me." And be drew bis hood
closer around his ears.
"Bnt you wilt past her hut' Please
In a tone more angry than before the
great doctor inquired, "What's the matter with your old wench, anyhow!"
"The old lady la suffering from consumption."
"Consumption!" rosred the gr.jt doctor with a sneer. "Aud fer such a common disease you bespeak the pretence ef
a specialist like me?"
"Vou think, then, that there Is no hope?
Is this your expert opinion, brother?" the
country physician uked.
The great doctor drew himself away
from his colleague. Looking bim full In
the face, he said in t voice trembling
with suppressed nge, "Young mau, I
think that the time tad abilities I devote
to the highest scientific tasks and problems should not be wetted by running lu
competition with a cupper sawbones
such ss yon."
"But yonr excellency Just comes from
an errand of that kind. You succeeded
the cupper st the millionaire's bed, but
of course expect to bt Well paid for lowering yourself. Every man bu his price."
"Hold yonr tongue, sir!" cried th.
greet doctor. "You en forgetting who
I am."
"A brother colleague." Insisted the
stranger. "You cta't forget that. We
are In tho stmt business, though our
methods differ. I ta employed by peer
people bectuH I never prescribe costly
medicines. Tht rich employ me, too-
wben they mutt Yon witnessed thit it

previous schlevements ef youn, depended
upon my good will. Fool tbat you are to
think that you ssved Michael Nlcolale*
rlteh from death. It wu Death that rejected bim for thit ont time."
With then words, ctnlestly spoken,
the stranger fixed nit Impressive eyet en
his companion, whe began te tremble.
"It*, a cold night���a mighty cold night"
continued tbe stranger; "or Is it perhtpt
fear that nukes you shake to?"
"Non>en.e," eeld the grett doctor, but
ht wohld nave given a thousand robin

Itr too.
"Stop!" cried tbt profttsor. "Driver,
���top!" But the horses doubled their paco.
The sleigh collided with trees, overhaug-
lut branches brushed against Its cover.
"Stop, driver! Stop, If you want to retain your position!" Then wu i craik,
the ground teemed te rite. The old coachman tumbled frou the box, the nine
dragged In the enow, the tarns ran u If
tbe foreat wen aflt-i.
"Now I must pity coachman," Mid tht
country doctor. He leued forward,
enatched up the ribbon, tnd Itughtd.
'We will bave ��� merry ride; take my
word tor It" ���"
"Yes, yes!" stuttered tbe professor, end
stealthily drawing a pistol from his pocket be pointed it at his companion's back.
Tbe country physician aever quivered.
"Don't act childishly," he said without
"Monster! I recognise you now!"
"Do yon at last?" sneered tbe -.tranter.
"I should have thought a man killer like
you would kuow Death on sight aud
wouldn't be afraid of him, either. If any
ot your rivals could hire seen you trying
to fight Detth, pistol In hand, how they,
would have enjoyed iti Bnt where is
your science now; when your strategy?
Why are you so small til it once?"
A snowstorm came thundering through
the trees. In the fsr esst the flint light
ot day wis gathering. Yonder on the
mountain side lay sleeping village..
"Do you recognise the neighborhood?"
uked Death.
"I do. I was born here."'
"And who Is the poor old Isdy. nay the
miserable old wench, wbo mutt die today?"
"I don't know. I"���
"Guess then,"
"My mother."
"What did you do for your mother?
'Your door was closed against ber. That

"You Ire mistaken. I looked out for

swelled like the thunder of heaven, "whet

"Then why did not you send yonr

"Because she is incurable."

SpenUb BIbmI In Ireland,
When the Spanish armada wns wrecked off the coasts of Clare nnd Onlwny
enmities, many surrlrors of the disaster
who reached the shores were kindly eared for by the Irish people, and considerable numbers of these unfortunates remained Iu the families of their generous
henrted rescuers.
Iu Hie counties of Clare and (latway
there Is to he found ut the present duy
a people differing essentially from niir
of the distinctive races existing on Irish
soil. This people nre the descendants of
the Spanish officers, sailors nnd soldiers
who bad beep rust ashore during the
fearful storm which destroyed the Spanish fleet.
The race marks of this people are well
defined. Crossi-d as II has been with the
Milesian stock. Its Spanish features offer
a most Interesting study, for they remain
prominent. The men nre tall, muscular.
dark featured, with black eyes snd black
hair. The women bare decided Spanish
traits tn their physique. They are usually
tall, brunettes iu some cases and fair In
others, with large, expressive black eyes
aud au abundance of black hair. Their
beauty reminds one uf the women of the
Basque provinces, while among them ure
to be found the perfection of tbe female
form in all Ireland. -Quarterly Review.

The Calgary Herald remarks:
"Average cattle prices srs higher today
than at any tlms since 1884 owing to
tbt fact that nn exceptional uctive
condition of the trade came at a period
wben the available supply was rather
limited. During ths week ending
August. 24th, 1899, the average price
of good 1200 to 1600 lb steers at Obi-
ago was 16.76 while last year similar
cattle averaged 16.00 per 100 lbs.

A wry hard trip, and having found

then is not sufficient ol the precious

of boulders which would render placer
