Seattle Telegraph : The secret mission of the yacht Oracle Felitz has
been told. After several weeks of
mysterious preparation the pennant
yacht of the Seattle Yacht Club heaved
anchor a few days ago and laid her
course to tho North, on what was
given out at the time to be a hunting
trip to tlie wooded shores of the Georgian gulf and the Southern Alaskan
coast. As the yacht is now fairly on
her journey nnd safe from inquisitive
questioning, the story is given away,
and proves to be no hunting expedition
at all, at least not one after animal
game. The five members of the expedition are Hushed with the expectation
that when thev return the Grade

discovered in such quantities that it is
believe! by these men will pay for
working. \\ itli this idea in view the
expedition sailed away and its members are prepared to put in two or
three of tho hardest months'work of
their live-i if the returns give en con r-
agoiueut for continuing. They are
well equipped for the work, not alone
iu having a fat larder with plenty (if
camping paraphernalia, but with newfangled machinery, which was so carefully and secretly guarded by its
members here that but one or two out
side of those interested knew of its
existence at all. Iu addition the expedition carried lit pound* of quicksilver,
with which to take up the infinitesimal
but multitudinous grains of yellow ore.
The members of the party ara: A. M.
Towle, Eugene Peters. William Newman and sou and James Holcom, an
old beach miner, who gathered bar
gold on California's bars and ocean
beach for 17 years.
The Kold which the expedition is
after at present is the kind found ill
black sand and is extremely bard to
gather. The old miner, however, has
a new invention which he is hoping
will catch every mite of gold in the
bars of British Columbia. This machine has nerer lieen tried, but the old
miller has faith in his theory mid says
it is bound to work. It consists of the
regulation sluice with quicksilver as
the detaining medium for the gold,
and besides some indescribable maclinn-
ism, through which the sand is firs'
run, there is at intervals along the
sluice a number of buckets or receptacles, into which the sand falls in its
career through tbe long box. Iu these
buckets is placed the quicksilver, and
the action of tho water which rushes
through the sluice churns the sand
and quicksilver together and allows
tho gold particles to come readily under the influence of tho quicksilver,
while the sand is carried on along tho

At Colville, Washington, Inst week,
died the boy that discovered the great
Silver King mine, for the honor of its
discovery belongs to "Billy" White.
Like many another discoverer of liiin-
ern' voalth, he lived not to enjoy the
fruits of his discovery. Little did he
dream on that October day in lKKI,
that the piece of copper pyrites he
picked up on Toad mountain, that
looked so much like native gold,
would cause him and his friends so
much worry and trouble. Little did
he imagine that its finding would
cause thousands of men to change
their abiding places only to make
fruitless search for that which he
stumbled against. For he was but an
unlettered half-breed boy. Iu the
seven years that have since elapsed he
at no time by wor I OV aorion made it
appear that his suddenly-acquired
wealth place I him above those with
whom no came in contact; and no one
ot the thirteen original owners worked
more fail li fully at'he mine or offered
less complaint when vexatious lawsuits eiuliiiigc ed their property rights.
For more than a year he has suffered
from consumption, but when in Nelson
last he expected lo recover. He was
aged 24 years. ���Nelson Tribune.

What Is Iieing Done to Open Up the
Silver Kln-r.
Matters appear to be jogging along
very well up at the Silver King, Tliere
are at present some twenty-five or
thirty miners at work, in addition to
tlie surface gang. All of the underground work hns so far been done by
contract, and judging by the reports,
those who have taken the work up
have done very well. The contracts
which are nearly a'l along the line of
development work, are let by tlie foot,
and can be terminated at any time the
manager considers a sufficient amount
hns been done ill that particular direction.
Tlie work up to date has given most
satisfactory results. The main lead
has been uncovered at various points
for 2000 feet, and so far the greatest
part of work has been in ore. Nothing
in the nature of a well defined wall has
as yei been located,though it is expected that these will come as depth is
gained. Thi work has opened the
mine in excellent shape, and several
hundred miners could lie put to work
at any time in the future that the
company may think best.
Drifting has been done each way
from the winze which connects the
upper and lower levels. These drifts
are about 4,i feot long, and are in solid
ore. Two new contracts have been let
to carry on this drifting to some fur-
thor extent. Tliere is a tunnel in
about 00 feet, near the line between the
Silver King and the Kootenay Bonanza, wh'ch shows good ore, as does the
50 foot shaft sunk on the Bonanza.
About thirty l'eor lower down than
the mouth ol the lower level, a shaft
has been sunk from which ore is being
taken o>it. Of the old levels tho upper
ono is in 240 feet, and the lower one
must lis iu nearly 70U feet. Tliere is
an incline connecting tlie upper level
with tlie surface, and a winze connecting tlie rwo levels. The greatest depth
is gained in about 300 feet lielow the
surface. A portion of the work will
include tbe stoping out of ore between
the two main levels. The surface
gang is busy cribbing up an ore dump,
in which this output will be put until
sorted for shipment. At present the
ore is being sorted quite closely as it is
broken down and will require but little
more handling before being sacked.
From present indications the desire
is to get the mine in. shape (or tbe

the tramway is constructed.���Nelson
Hut Cap*. Crawford   Took Him into
Dinner und iimile 11 Im out It.
Tlie Chicago Post says: Captain
Jack Crawford, the poet of the plains,
tells u story of himself that will bear
repeating. The Captain, it may bo
stated for the information of those
who never saw him; is a tall, muscular
fellow, who wears his coal-black hair
down over his shoulders a la Joaquin
Miller and Buffalo Bill and presents a
striking appearance. He is as mild a
mail as ever drew breath, with a heart
as tender as a woman's, but to a person who does not know him he looks
as though he might eat a giant raw
every day for breakfast. His tout ensemble is that of the hero of a yellow-
backed romance. Well, the Captain
was on his way to lunch ono day
when n seedy specimen accosted him
with a request for a quarter to buy a
"Indeed, mister, I haven't had a
bito to eat for twenty-four hours," he
put iu nppealingly -iz he saw the longhaired Westerner hesitated.
"I am here on expense, and can't
right well spare a quarter, but I am
going to get something to eat myself,
and if you will come along with me I
will give yon a square meal."
The man followod sulkily and entered a cheap restaurant, whore the cap
tain ordered two big boiled dinners.
Being hungry he soon despatched his
own dinner, when he chanced to look
over at the mendicant, and was surprised to see the latter nibbling bin
food daintily, not nt all like a hungry
"Look here," said the host, leaning
over and speaking in i low tone to his
guest. "I brought you iu here because
I believed yon were starving. You
lied to me. Now I wart to say to yon
if yon don't eat every bite of that
boiled dinner and polish the platter I'll
give you the cussedest lickiu' a white
man ever got.    Now get to work."
The man olieyed with terror inspired
alacrity and swallowed his corned beef
and cabbage like a starving harvest
hand. The waiter, who bau overheard
tho Captain's threat, told the proprietor of the restaurant and he shook his
fat sides as he watched the gastronomic performance of the frightened tra:np.
When the meal" was despatched the
captain called for pudding and ice
cream for two.
The fraud gave a great gasp, and
throwing up both hands turned beseechingly to tbo poet with this supplication : " Say, cunnel, let me off
this time, won't you? I just got up
from a square meal when I met you,
It wasn't something to eat I wanted,
but something to drink. Please cunnel, have pity on a feller, won't you?"
The "cunnel" told the fellow to go
and be quick about it or he would kick
iim through every street in town. No
second invitation was needed. The
gorged beggar "seated."
. Whun tbe charitablo Captain tried to
pay his bill the jolly Teutonic proprie-
is unknown. It is stated that the
attacking force of Peixoto's men suffered heavy losses, as did also the island
garrison, but accurate figures cannot
be procured.
The British Minister has informed
all persons of his nationality in Rio
that in his opinion it is dangerous for
them to remain in the city and has
ordered all the British ships in the
harbor to be towed higher up the bay.
The excitement in Rio in view of these
preparations for bombardment, is intense. In the abortive attempt made
by Peixoto's men to capture Fort
Villegaignon, formerly reported, about
20 men were killed.
The Italian steamer Nnpoli has just
been reported a total wreck near Victoria, a maritime town of Brazil, capital of the Province of Espereto Sauco,
270 miles northeast of Rio. Tlie Do-
gali has gone to aid the crew, none of
whom are it ported lost.

London. Dec. ll. ���The indications
are that Editor Stead's vagaries in
Chicago will result iu his being called

time since to t.-eat bis movements

.Ins. Kennedy Shot.
Vancouver, Dec. 1(5. ��� Jas. Kennedy,
doing a life sentence at Westminster
jail for manslaughter at Golden, B.C.,
attempted to escape yesterday morning.
The guards were taking a squad of
prisoners from thu ravine to their
quarters, when three prisoners broke
for the open. The guards called them
to halt, two halted and Kennedy went
on. The guard fired, striking Kennedy in the abdomen and inflicting a
fatal wound.
Poured Into tho Streets of the City of
Rio Janeiro, Dec. 1(1.- On the night
of Dec. 10th the city was thrown into
a panic by a storm of shot and shell
which lasted for 50 minutes. The
missiles came, from tho rifles and rapid
firing guns on Cobras Island nnd fell
all over the city, but especially in Ca-
noca and Travessa streets, and on
other points where the theatres are
situated. The play-houses were just
being emptied of their throngs of
patrons and the effect was tremendous.
Scared women fled, shrieking along
the street. Runaway carriage horses
ran among the pedestrians, and above
the screaming of shells, and the rattling of rifles caused great confusion.
This wns the result of an attack made
from the shore upon the Island by
Peixoto's troops, to which De Camas
island butteries- were not slow in responding. Houses on the water front
wore much damaged by the leaden
shower, but the number of casualit.es
the unemployed be could find an infinitely better field iu this and other
cities oi his own country than in Chicago or any other part of the United
States, and that iiis spectacular advent
and course in America savors decidedly
of the charlatan and demagogue. It, is
probable that several of the- labor organization'; thai hold meetings tomorrow will ado;*, -.solutions repudiating Stead and his solf-iissntDed
interest in behalf of the unemployed of
the United States.

Hurled Down a Hill.
Louisville, Ky. Dec, IS.���A freight
train bound for this city on the Chesapeake and Ohio and Southwestern
railway was hurled 135 fuet down the
side of Miildruugh's hill, twenty-live
miles south of this city, yesterday
morning, Three men wore killed four
injured and thirteen cars wero wrecked
Five of these cars contained live hogs,
400 head of which were killed, and five
carried cattle, of which 100 were killed
outright. Tlio Io.it to tho railroad in
rolling stock will amount to $10,000
|or $12,000, and the value of the live
stock will largely increase this.
The men killed were Thomas ICeegan,
engineer of Louisville; John Downes,
fireman of Louisville; and a unknown
man. The latter boarded the train a',
a station or two back. Ia his pockets j
were found a card with the name, C.
A. Tallen, and a woman's letter addressed to "Steve." The man was
well dressed and about 35 years oil
The injured are two unknown tram. -

Chicago, Dec. IS.���A sensation was
sprung at the adjournment of the
morning session of the Prendergast
trial to-day, lawyers for the prosouil-
tion boldly charging that they had
been betrayed, '"The state has, lieen
tricked," mid A. ;>. Trude, "and some
of the doclors who will take the stand
for the defense are the very doctors
who wero called together by the state, I
along with others, to formulate a line
ot prosecution. Some of theso men
attended the conferences, gave their
opinions to the representatives of the
state, learned the policy of the prosecution, and now t hey are to take the
stand for the other side, armed with
every particle of data that the prosecution has gathered. You can s.iy for
me that certain organizations have
raised money for tho defense of the
n.urde.'tr of Carter Harrison, and I
wouldn't hesitate to say that money
luis been freely used bv the defense in
this case in securing testimony."
Most prominent among the witnesses
examined this afternoon were llr.
Archibald Church and Dr. 1). R.
Brewer. Or. Church said this morning : " I was employed hy States Attorney Kern tu make an examination
of Prondergast, and to report to hiin
as to bis mental condition und whether
he was mentally responsible for the
crime. Since that time I have been
subpiunned for the defense. Of course
I had to obey the law und come. I
have told what I think of the man
and that I consider hiin crazy."

He Wanted Sliarlng; Cross.
One afternoon I jumped upon a 'bus
in the Seven Sisters road.
An elderly Frenchman was the only
other occupant of tho vehicle.
" You vil not forget me," the
Frenchman was saying as I entered.
"I desire Sharing Cross."
'��� I won't forget yer," answered the
conductor ; ' you shall 'ave yer Sharing Cross. Don't make a fuss about
it. That's the third time 'ee's 'arst me
not to forget 'im," he remarked to me
in a stentorian aside. ���' 'Ee don't giv'
yer much chance of doin' it, does 'ee."
At the corner of Holloway road wo
drew up, and the conductor began to
shout after the manner of his species.
"Charing Cross -Charing Cross���
'ere you are, lady -Charing Cross."
The little Frenchman jumped up
and prepared to alight; the conductor
pushed him back.
"Sit down, and don't he silly," he
said, "this ain't Charing Cross."
The Frenchman looked puzzled, but
collapsed meekly.
We picked up a few passengers and
proceeded ou onr way. At tiie Angel
we, of course, stopped.
'���Charing Cross," shouted the conductor, and up sprung the Frenchman.
The conductor collared him as he was
getting olf.
���'Cnrn't yer keep still a minute," he
cried, indignantly. "Blessed if you
don't want looking after like a bloom-
in' kid."
" I vont to be put down at Sharing
Cross," answered the little Frenchman
'��� Y'ou vont to be put down at.Sharing Cross," repeated the other bitterly,
as be led him back to his scat, "I
shall put you down in the middle of
the road if I 'ave much more of yer.
Yer stop there until I come and sling
yer out. . I ain't likely to let you go
much past yer Sharing Cross. I shall
be too jolly glad to get rid o' yer."
The poor Frenchman subsided, and
we joltod on. At the top of Chancery
lane the same scene took place, and
the little Frenchman became exasperated.
'��� He keep on saying Sharing Cross
-Sharing Cross," he exclaimed, turning to tho other passengers, "and it
is not Sharing Cross.    He is a fool."
'���Carat yer understand," retorted
the conductor, equallj indignant; "of
course I say Sharing Cross-I mean
Charing Cross-but that don't mean
tliut it is Charing Cross.    That means
that "' and then |��irceiving from tlie
blank look in the Frenchman's face
the utter impossibility of ever making
the matter clear to hiin, he turned to
to us with au appealing gesture nnd
"Does any gentleman know the
French for bloomin' idiot V"
A day or two afterwards I happened
to enter his omnibus again.
'��� Well," I asked, "did you get your
French friend to Charing Cross ull
right ?"
������No, sir," ho replied; "you'll
'ardly believe it, but I'd a bit of a row
with a policeman just before I'd got to
the corner, and it put 'im clean out o'
my 'end. Blest if I didn't run 'im on
