New Westminster lias accepted the
portfolio ot Attorney-General, and
Hon. D. Higglns of Victoria has turned sorehead, and threatens to leave the

Montreal, Aug. 4.���Tlio races for Ihe
Seawauliaka Cup hud u most uusutis*
fuotory euiluiK yesterday. The Glen-
cairn and the Co.iR.Mice each had two
victories, and ��� tliis wos lo be a tug of
war. Tho previous rnciug lmd shown
the result depended nearly altogether
on the weather, the Constance being
undoubtedly superior in anything heavier than a full sail breeze, i-Bpeoinlly if
there wns u sea, nud tlio Blenoairn cer*
tninly foster in a linlit wind. It was
obviously Glenouiru weather again today for the breeze at noon was about
five or six miles tin hoar and tho surface of tho lake was placid.
The course w*:s to lie u beat of two
miles to windward und return threo
times, making twelve miles, but thero
wos great difficulty in (jetting suoh a
course. Tho wind, whioh started from
tlio southwest, veered around to the

lay out t, -nth-factory bent of two miles
iu that direction on Lake St. Lonis,
owing to shoals. Alter it tedious delay
the preparatory signal was dually given
lit 8.65. Both yachts crossed the line
to windward for a few minutes, and
then after tlio first gnu wns fired at
11.00, both again sailed back of the line.
It was a fight for the windward position, but the Glencuiru moving faster
on tho light ail',' got it and kept it.
The Constance swung arouud into tbe
wind but the Glencuiru wns ou the
watch and qnickly did tlio same. The
Glencnirn, however, moved too close to
the line and had to fall back again
nearer tho Constance and still to windward.
It was seen that something -was
wrong on board tiie American boat, for

Vouconver, Aug. 3. ��� Dyea, the
Klondike out port, which was almost
ruined by its rival Skagway, was in
danger of being burned out last Friday
night when the steamer Orizaba left.
R. P. McLennan, who came in yesterday by steamer, says that wben ho left
there was almoat a continuous circle of
fire along the water front of Dyea. The
United States barracks, where the col-
cued troops were stationed, as well as
the wharf nearby, wore burned, and
the fire spread into other .buildings and
towards the town. The whole place
was iu danger of going lip in smoke.
Mr. McLennan cannot estimate the
damage, hut when the steamer passed
by it would likely have amounted to
$30,000. On the day before Mr. Mc-
Leuuau saw another fire, near the summit on lino witli the White Pass railway. The station bouse, water tank
and other buildings caught from �� hush
fire and n good deal of damage was
done. Mr. McLennan left Dawson

hydraulic property owned by a company of which Ward .ind Shaw are the
principal proprietors. It is near Horsefly Creek and connects witb other well
known properties iu tbe section. When
the hydraulic machinery is in operation it is the custom of managers to
take samples out ahead of their work
aud it was in doing tbis that the find
was made. Several pans of dirt were
takeu out tbat were said on good authority to go between $500 nnd $(100 to
the ton. The property is looking better
from a general standpoint than it has
for a long time. Whether the find is
merely a pooket remains to he proven.

Willie Attempting to' llmml a Train Earl
F��ye Wun SerloiiKly Injured,
Brandon', Aug. 3.���A shocking accident occurred here tonight, as a result
of which Earl Foye, a yonng man
twenty-five years of age, was carried to
the hospital with his right leg crushed
to a pulp from the knee dowu, und
with other injuries that will probably
prove fatal. The young fellow was
boating his wny from Moosomin to
Wiuuipeg, over the Canadian Pacific
railway. He arrived from the west
this moruiug, and in attempting to
board an outgoing freight be fell under
the wheels, and a number of cars of
cattle pasi-ed over bim. The accident
occurred at tbe 0th street crossing, and
was witnessed by a number of people.
Foye was about to catch the iron rod on
the side of the cur when the brakeman
on the traiu yelled at him. Witnesses
say Foye looked up, and missing his
hold on tbe rod fell beneath the wheels.
The cries of tbo injured man were
something fearful, aud be begged those
who ran (o his assistance to kill him or
give bim the means of killing himself,
the pain was so intense. Relief was
quiokly secured aud tbe wounded limb
bound up until Dr. Mntheson, wbo bad
been summoned, arrived. Tne injured
man was taken to the hospital. Foye
is a very respectable looking young fellow aud hails from Chatham, Out. He
has been living lately ut Moosomin aud
sturted yesterday for Winnipeg witb a
companion. The train was stopped as
soon as possible and during the interval
half a dozen other tramps boarded it
for a free ride.

Eighth  Exhibition.
"Bound to become one of the biggest
affaira of the kind ou this continent."
Snoh waa tbe opinion freely expreued
by thonsauda of intelligent viiiton
from aU ports vtho thronged into Winnipeg d-ariug the Exhibition week,
Jul?'10 to 15, and to jndge from tbe
progress made linoe the first fair was
held little donbt cau be entertained as
to the truth of the remark.
The premier, the Hou. Thos. Greenway, poiuted tbis oot iu his speeoh at
tbe official opening of the Exhibition.
Iu 1895, fiiiiil Mr. Green way, the receipts -amounted to t28.8UG.yfi. while
in 1898 they amounted to $49,7B0.
Tbe accounts for tbis year have uot yet
been finally adjusted, bnt we understand the receipts are iu excess of these
of 181)8, an almost unhoped fvr success.
Where nil the exhibits appertaining
to agriculture were of snoh excellence
it Is difflonlt in a short summary to
particularize, bnt what wonld immediately draw the attention of an outsider
is tbe wonderful exhibit of agricultural
implements and machinery. ,
As a matter of fact tbe machinery
ball was this year doubled in size;
every inch of space wuh utilised, and
yet tbe exhibits overflowed to all tbe
surrounding spaoe. Here was a wide
vista of threshing engines and separators in motion forming an interesting
study to even those who but vaguely
comprehended the nses of suoh artioles.
A vast improvement both In nnmber
and quality of exhibits was shown in
the Dairy Department.
The judge, Mr. T. L. Hacker, who ii
state superintendent and professor of
animal husbandry for the state ot Minnesota, pronounced the exhibit one of
the best he ever saw.
Iu the farm dairy class the number
of entries astonished the judge, wbo
stated that not one half as many oould
be got together for a state fair iu Minnesota,
In the creamery Butter class the entries were more numerous than last
year. Professor Hacker pronounced the
make very good and said the whole
style reflected great credit oa the field
instruction given the creameries. Tbe
number of entries of cheese was in fine
condition. This must prove very grat-
ifiyng to Mr. O. O. Mucdonald, the
dairy commissioner, whose efforts to
moke this very important section of
the exhibition a success, were so uutir
While not so large a class as last
year the horses were, if anything,better
in quality, and tbe same may lie said
of tbe cattle. The seoretary of the Dominion Short Horn Breeders' Society,
Mr. Wade, was a visitor to the Fair
Mid pronounced the animals shown
very superior to those he was called
upon to judge a couple of years ago.
Tbe poultry exhibits far exceeded
those of any previous year, and the
building was taxed to Its utmost. In
a wing off tbe main building were located the geese, turkeys aud various
rare varieties of fowl and rabbits. The
exhibits in all these classes were especially fine and undoubtedly the best ever
seen at a Winnipeg fair.
���Vat the first time the dogs were
shown under the Canadian Kennel club
rules aud no doubt this was one reason
why tha quality more than compensated for the look of numbers.
In tbe sporting classes there was an
excellent show and one of the most interesting exhibits and a novelty for
tbis oountry was a number of Hessian
Wolf hounds, a breed that promises to
beoomo of great use to sheep farmers. *
In all tbe other departments the entries were well filled. Particular notice must be given to the competition
for the prizes offered for home made
brood. Herein the judges had an arduous task Indeed.
Tbe speeding events were keenly
contested thronghout and some very
exciting finishes were witnessed by the
thousands who thronged the grand
stand. Every afternoon nnd evening a
grand vaudeville performance was
given and on the whole the manager is
certainly to be congratulated on the se*
lection made. Tbe pick of tbe show
was undoubtedly the Herbert's dogs,
the Fortune Bros,, nud tbe Diana.
Thia lady's dance Is very cleverly executed and the effect of tbe many mirrors reflecting ber eyery movement was
very beautiful. The dogs were wonderfully clever, particularly one little
fellow who climbed a Ji-4 foot ladder
and mado a flying leap iuto a net.
The Fortuns brothers act was us clever an act as we ever witnessed aud they
well deserved the applause lavished
upon them. The Metwuf family of
Russian tumblers aud dancers deserve
great praise.
Cotton's Doukey circus, Kelly aud
Row in their turn, designated as tbe
living doll were also a fund of amusement and laughter. Last but not least
must be mentioned tbe chariot races;
the descent from a balloon by Melemo,
and finally tbe troupe of colored artists
who bail from Virginia. Their singing, buck and wing dnuaing was first
rate and if the cake walk appeared to
take np two much time it must be remembered that it served to fill up this
interval which wonld otherwise have
been required for fitting up aud putting in place tbe mirrors required for
Diana's dance. A grand display of
fireworks terminated tbe performance
every evening.
In point of numbers the attendance
was about tbe same as last year. On
Citizens day there was a record of over
81,pop. Ufi Friday American Day the
crowd was nearly as great. The Wip-
flipeg Fflir \$ eyideutly becoming
known and oppreojated by pur neighbors acroA tbe border. Every faoiljty
WM given by the Northern Paciflo and
Great Northern lines of railway and
tbe consequences were that between
flve and six thousand invaded Winnipeg with bands and banners and took
full possession for the day. No doubt
this feature of a special soy for Ameri-
mot will ia tbo future become more
Md more tmp-rtant aud will be tba
means of conferring mnch permanent
benefit on our town and provinoe.
Ocular proof and personal tegtimouv hy
an independent orowd go muoh further
than official evidence towards removing doubts and olearing away misrepresentations. For their efforts in this
direction ibe mnuagemenfc.of the exhibition deserve more than local praise.
Ou Saturday 'Ladies Ley' in addition to the nsual prograaome there were
some very amusiug gymkhana events.
This will be more appreciated when
better understood aud we venture to
think that Saturday will in time become what it deserves to be, oue of the
most popular days at tbe Fair. Every
iteai.goes without a hitch, tbe crowds

A* OuUidu Opinion.
"American Day" at the Winnipeg
Industrial Fair ranked uext to Winnipeg day in the nnmber of visitors,
there having been 38,000.admissions on
Friday last, and 38.000 the day before.
Between 6,000 and 6,000 wero sent iu
by the excursions on the N. P. and G.
N. roads, the former forwarding two
specials of 16 oars eaoh and one of 18,
while tbe G. N. sent oot one special of
16 oars and one with 18. The local
sale of tickets was 410 by the N. P.,
and 375 by the G. N. The Grafton
band accompanied the N. P. excursionists, and the bands of Orookston and
the K. P. band of Grand Forks also
visited the fair. On the arrival in the
city the Grafton and Grand Forks band
marobed to the city hall square, where
they played God Save the Queen" and
"Yankee Doodle" lo applause, Drum
Major Ball of the Graftonltes making
a neat little speeoh between the pieces
commending the spirit of fraternal relation between the two nations.
The fair itself was a pronounced success In every department nud In addition to most interesting and well oon
tested racing events there were many
exoellent specialties for the entertainment of the guests, including balloon
ascension and magnificent fire works
that wero greatly enjoyed by a the visitors. Winnipeg was gay with bunting and the stars and stripes were conspicuously in evidence. It is to be
noted to their credit tbat there was not
the least attempt made at extortionate
charges, aud on every hand a most cordial aud delightful exhibit of spontaneous hospitality toward the Americans
visitors that was very grateful to them.
Sco'y F. W. Heubaoh, upon whom
most of tbe labor of organization and
management of the event devolved,
proved very conspicuously the man for
the place and is to be congratulated
with his colleagues npon the gratifying
results that marked the week of exhibition.���News and Times, Grafton, N.

Tbs Implements of war bave become
so terrible that rulers and people alike
stand In fear and dread of hostilities;
and tbe mare contemplation of its horrors
must cause war to cease and the rtign
of peace to begin. At Omdurman, lately,
the Dervish army was mowed down like
grass before the reaper at tbe distance of
a mile. With tbe machine guns now invented the same things that were seen In
the Soudan oould be done on the plains
of Europe. Why, then, should we wonder
at the unrest of the nations'? Xeither
princes por their ministers can lead their
people jnto snoh shambles of death and
ruin, and the day has passed when whole

"You may turn back If you like," said
���he; "but I mean to get to the top, even

On rode the party merrily enough, and
the warning wax soon forgotten-.
When they reached the village whore
they wore to sleep, their leader, Oapt.
Oharlccote, of the ���th Bengal cavalry,
who had gone on before to prepare for
tl elr reception, came out to iniet them,
"Who ds you think has just been

was buay with the landlord when he

They started for the crater nest
morning without seeing anything more
of Col. Stracey. They reached the foot
of the snow cone without mischance of
nny kind, and leaving their horses there
started up the final ascent by twos and
threes, laughing and talking gayly as
they went* But. just as tbey were nearing the edge of the crater, -a cloud of
bluish-white vapor began to roll up from
It, while a deep hollow sound like the
tumble of ponderous wheels shook the
earth under their feet,
"Turn back! turn back!" shouted Oapt.
Charlecote. "It's coming lu earnest now-

ever gone since he won the "hundred

got to the foot no horses were to be

he must be going the wrong way.
He was just hesitating in which direction to turn, when ��� suddenly there

A stream of burning lava hud bur-at
from tho crater, and. rolling down the
mountain side, had flowed o-mjil-'tely
around the rock op which he stood,
which arose like an Islet from the midt.t
of the blood-red torrent of fire. His le-
treat wns cut off,
As )ie sank back upon the rock, sick
and dizsy with terror, the stones and
ashes began to fall thicker and thicker
around him*
AH nt once e, shout can* clear and
strong, through the roll of the subterranean thunders nud thp crash of fall'
ing stoma, as - a tall figure, leaping
through the smoke, alighted bcs.de him.
The light fell full ujhhi if, und Dave-
mint recognised the ttrungar at whose
warning hehad laughed the day before-
"Qu'ck!" saiil Col- Stracey, seising his
arm. "There's a big stone fallen Into
the middle of the lava stream. You
can jump on to It, and then across to
the Other side.   Come along!"
Duvenant obeyed- It was a fearful
leap, and with life niifj death hanging
upon the venture; but another u:cm��ut
saw them both on the firm ground beyond the firp torrent, jnst as a fresh
flood of lava overwhelmed \b,e rock

The crash of a falling stone close to
his head spurred Paveuaut to one last
effort, and a few minutes later he was
safe on the crest of a ridge of rock, too
high for the lava to overflow, aud leading straight downward toward the c'ty.
Just at this point tjw colonel hulled.

writes: "I have suffered from a bad form of
asthma for over nine years, and notwithstanding all the doctors could do for me, got worse
and worse, so that my neighbors looked for my
death at any time. I spent money lavishly in
the efforts to get relief, but all to no purpose.
For six weeks at a time I could not get up or
down stairs, and was in a miserable condition
My daughter, who clerks In a drug store, had
heard a good dual of Clarke's Koln Compound,
and urgi-d me to try it as a lost resort. I paid
��2.00for a bottle, and tliat is nothing, for It Is
worth more than that for every tcaspoontnl.
Two dt ses gave me splendid relief, and, after
using bat one bottle, 1 am a marvel to all who
know tab. I am doing my own work, can got

Frlfflilful Sensai ons of Those Wh*
Are Slave* to lhe Drag.
These evils cannot be more strongly revealed than In the experience of an Australian physician. lie has given the
world of medicine tbe benefit of a narration of what he underwent after bu had
become addicted, to the almost constant
use of the drug. In the course of thut
confession, which he did not hesitate to
make public, he said, Iu describing bis
sensations: "The first feeling a cocalnist
has is an Indescribable excitement to do
something great; to leave a mark. But,
alas, this disappears as rapidly as it
comes, and soon every part of the body
seems to cry out for a new syringe.
The second sensation���at first, at least,
no hallucination���ia that his bearing. Is
enormously Increased, so that he hears
tbe flics walking over the paper. Very
soon every sound begins to be a rem mk
about himself, mostly of a nasty kind,
and he begins to carry on n solitary life,
his only companion being bis beloved syringe. Every passer by seems to talk
about him. Often aud often have I stopped persons or ordered the police to arrest them, thinking tbey were talking
about me.
"After a relatively short time begins
the 'hunting of the cocaine bug.' Vou
Imagine tbat In your skin worms or simitar things nre moving along. If you
touch tbem with wool, especially absorbent wool, they ruif away and disappear, only to peep cautiously out of some
corner to see If tbere Is any danger.
These worms are projected ouly to the
cocalnlst's own person or clothing. lie
sees tbem So bis- washing, tn his skin,
creeping along bis penholder, but not on
other people or things and not oo clothes
brought clean from the laundry. How Is
this to be explained? About tbe same
time appear many other hallucluatlons of
tbe opticus and, strange to say, self suggested hallucinations also. Night turns
to day. You sit up In your room syringing until tt)e morning nnd then fall asleep
In a coma. In my case this occurred to
such an extent thnt I bad to engage a
hospital warder, who came In the morning to revive me witb about ten syringes
of S per cent solution, so that I was able
to drive, not walk, fearing some one
might garrote me. Other dreadful hallucluatlons I bad In thousands, all of a persecuting character and frightening tbe
life out of me so long ns the effects of the
drnff laslfrtl."1 v ���
"You see small animals running about
your body and feel their bites. Every object seems to become alive to stare at
you. From all corners look revolvers,
knives, etc, and threaten you. Yet, so
soon as the effect of the Injection Is over
you laugh at It and produce willingly by
0 uew Injection tho same terrors. About
that time ( bought three St. Bernard
dogs, thinking tbey would protect me, but
one bight I found they were talking about
mo���how they could get rid of me���so }
stood up and shot one of them witb a revolver, which I always used to carry. 1
think this was the most dreadful night of
my life���I standing on the table, with ao
Indian dagger uud a syringe on the
ground, one three foot nigh dog going to
dip and two rather dangerous dogs roar*
Ing ai{d groaning nloud, reproachfully
looking at me, who always funded, 'Now
pomps the moment when they will tear
you to pieces.' 1 stood the night on tht
(nhlp until the arrival of my wardman,
who hardly risked to enter the room.
���'The strange thing, however, In the cocaine habit is that there seem to be two
louls In the cocalnist���one Infested by
the cocaine, suffering and tortured by Its
effects, the other norma), laughing at bli
(fare and saying: 'What nonsense! It ti
Only a hallucination, produced by nn Injection.' Not frightened enough by these
experiences and escaping from the troubles produced by bis conduct, on tbe cocalnist goes, taking more nnd mare, and
then enters a new kind af Illusion which
finishes him up for the madhouse."���

"When wo speak of a crook 'nipping* a
diamond stud, wc use the word advisedly," said a central station detective. "It's
not a case of Idle slang. In fact, nearly
all tbe words used In a slang way by
thieves and police officers come nearer to
expressing the exact Idea of wbat we
mean to Illustrate thau most people

'Stole a diamond.' Now. that's all right
In Its wsy, but there's a hundred or more
ways In which diamonds may be stolen,
so It gives no clew as to tbe particular
method of operation. But when we are
told tbat some crook bas 'nipped' a spark
we know exactly bow be did l\ and havt
a fair sort of lead to work on.
'To 'nip* a spark means to cut off 1
diamond from a man's shirt front. Th-fi

way and has q little cup Into which the
diamond (a"a when put from the gold

little ipstrumenl to {l\v front, jostles and
shoves Ilia victim, perhaps curses Mm
for 'treading on his toes' and. having distracted his attention, slips one hand close
to his bosoin. A simple move, a pressure
of the finger, the sharp Jews clutch the
shank of the pin or stud, tbe diamond
drops Into the cuplike receptacle and the
nipper Is gone. Ho Is the diamond*"���
