Tbe mail service to Fort Steele is a
disgrace to the district, it takes 14
days for a letter from Fort Steole to
reach Golden and return a distance of
300 miles, and 21 days to Viotoria.
What we need is a round trip each
week, we cannot transact ths business
of the district without it. The time is
past when we can do with a round
trip mail in two weeks. The mining
interests of this district demand the
best service that is possible, for mining deals are made, and closed, snd an
uncertain or delayed mail may cause
the loss of thousands of dollars to
either party, a petition should be
addressed to our member stating the
facts, and we have no doubt thst the

Zanzibar, Aug. 27.��� The palace of
ihe Sullun of Zanzibar was bombarded
this morning and ilt noon was a mass
of blazing ru'uiB. Tho usurping chief-
: .-.in, Suid Khalid, and commander of
Ills forces, Sales, succeeded in escaping
io tlie German consulate, where they
lave sought refuge and remain under
i he protection of the German flag.
R'rir Aliuiriil Henry Rawson, C.B^
in command of the British Cape of
Jooil Hope and West Const of Africa
station, and the British Consul General, A. R. Harding, C.B., after holding
a conference yesterday, communicated
by cable with tlie government of Great
Britain an outline of the situation of
affairs here, setting forth that Said
Khalid, who seized the palace and proclaimed himself Sultan ou the death,
appaieutly by poison, of Sultan Homed
Ben Thwsn Bin Said, hud been strongly reinforced, and positively refused to
surrender. Said Khalid hud with him
at that time about 2,500 well armed
men, including 900 Askaris, who have
lieen trained under British officers,
plenty of ammunition and a number of
held guns and otlier pieces of artillery,
which were trained on tbe British
Later in the day cabled instructions
were received from Loudon and au ultimatum was sent to Said Khalid.order-
iug hiin to haul down his flag and surrender with his forces uot later than 9
o'clock this morning At the same
time the British residents were ordered
to be on board Admiral Rawson's ships
by 8 o'clock. It is understood that
Said Khalid received further reinforcements from slave dealers, us the formal hoisting of the British flag over
Zanzibar would meftii tlie liberation of
250,000 slaves, and be a deathblow to
slavery in this part of East Africa.
Shortly before 9 o'clock a naval officer
wns sent to the Palace square witli another mer-sage for Said Khalid, asking
him if ho wus prepared to surrender
and notifying him that tlio place in
which ho hi.d barricaded himself
would be shelled at 9 o'clock promptly,
if he failed to haul down his flag before
thnt time. Said replied tliut he would
soouer die tliun surrender. His answer
was conveyed to Admiral Rawson and
-he British consul-general, and the
crews of the ships which had lieen
prepared for action ou the day before
were sent to their quarters. At 9
o'clock the flagship signalled the Ra
coon, Thrush and Sparrow to commence firing, and a moment later the
boats referred to commenced firing and
iu ten minutes they had sent a storm
of shot and shell into tlie pnlace, tearing big gaps iu it and scattering death
and confusion among its defenders,
while dismounting some ol the guns
before it, and putting to flight the
gunners handling the pieces. The fire
of the warships was admirably directed and smoke was soon seen to be
issuing from several parts of the palace
The bombardment was kept up till
9:50, when the palace wus tumbling in
ruins and large rents had been made in
the barricades of Said's followers, Tlie
latter however answering the fire of
tlio warships with great persistency
and gallantry, and did not stop firing
until in response to lhe flagship's signal of cease firing, the guns of the
warships stopped showering shot and
shell ashore. The losses of the enemy
are not known, but must have been
heavy. Said Khalid and Said Sales,
the latter being commander of the
usurper's army, escaped with a number of their leading followers through
the back part of the palace, and hurriedly made their way to the German
consulate, where they asked for protection which wus accorded them. No
casualties are reported among the
Church Services.
Tlio usual evening service will be
held to-morrow iu St. Paul's Church

telegraph  orders promptly
attended  to.
The attention of Prospectors and Miners is called to the merits of s ntti
improved apparatus, for testing and smelting various kinds of ores and miner*
a s, also separating and refining base bullion, etc.
Manufactured by a chemist and metallurgist who thoroughly understands
the wants of the assayer, the prospector, the miner, the chemist for laboratory
test; for all furnace work, such as smelting, scorifying, coupelling, fusing in
crucibles, testing of sampling charges, roasting, etc.
This furnace is built in two halves for easy transportation, is complete ia'
itself, made of steel plate, with cast-iron slag and metal spouts, wind supply
pipe and knock-down bottom.
It is of the cupola type, witb extension when smelting ores; capacity 1000'
to 5000 pounds per bent; also smaller size, capacity from 100 to 200 pounds'
per heat, according to the character of cres.
The Advantages in Practice are as Follows:
Tin's furnace is constructed by and for a prospector, who requires a serviceable furnace, easily transported over a mountainous country by a pack burro,
that is complete and ready to be bet up at any dump of low grade ores, that
otherwise will not pay to ship, and make his good pay out of one to two tons'
of ore a day.
On low-grade oroa picked nt the dump, thta little fnrnnee will pay for Itself every week, besides wages and expenses. Let someone else do the risk in
mining, and stick to a certuinity.
What We Furnish and What it Costs.
A Handy Prospector's Furnace, 3 feet in diameter by 5 feet high, cupola-
type with knock-down bottom, made of No. 10 Steele plate, and stiffened with

two ladles, three furnace tapping tools, two darlings (or plugging sticks), one'
graphite No. 40 crucible, one blacksmith's forge blower, geared complete in iron
