Mr. John Pratt undoubtedly has a

doing it line in mining, so we bear.
Messrs. Phillips and Browne came

I should be patronised.
!     We had the pleasure of  seeing some

Mr. John McRae is still busy on the

Ou lookimr around for crops of all
descriptions we conclude that the harvest will be a plentiful one.
The usual summer loafers are coming
in .lupidly. The poor fellows are in

them.
The hospital subscription list was

Some little time since we bad the
pleasure of taking iu one of thus ��� very
enjoyable trips down the Columbia
river to Nelson and vicinity, which
cives such a change to the ordinary
routine of daily life and at the same
time impresses one with the marvellous
l-eiiuty of the water ways and mountains of the province. Nature bus
truly' been lavish in her bestowal >f
scenery combined with such a line
climate, each perhaps as tine as can bv
obtained in the world.
Starting from Golden on Friday

of the excellent p-eps available along

supper nt the grand hotel "The Glacier

spot, situated on   the   South   East  of
the  Upper, Arrow  lake, facing it and
such   a water   way   too  as  is rarely
witnessed.     Nakusp is a young town,

may say,perfect.    The C.P.R. are said
to have decided  to bring their railway

too much so to show us many line

that ho became awae of a collision
almost directly tbo Victoria began to
turn. He did not think that Staff
Commander Hawkeus-S.iiith had ever
been consulted by Vice-Admiral Tryon
in regard to thu manoeuvres, indeed
nobody had been consulted. When
Vice-Admiral Tryon hoisted his ling
on the Victoria it was customary 10
use a thirty degree helm. Vice-Ad-
miral Tryon altered this to 2N degrees.
Lord Gillford, flag lieutenant of the
Mediterranean squadron testihed that
after the collision V.ce-Admiral Tryon
said to him : --'It, was all my fault.''
Staff Commander Hawkins-Smith
also gave evidence showing that Vice-
Admiral Tryon took upon himself the
responsibility for the disaster. The
Staff Commander said that imnielintely
after the Ctinperlown rammed the
Victoria, the Vice-Admiral said to him :
"It was entirely my doing, it wns
entirely my fault."

London, July 21���Further questions
were asked in the House of Commons
yesterday in regard to the Siamese
troubles. Sir Edward Gray, parliamentary secretary of foreign office,
replied in behalf of the government.
He rehearsed the events that have
occurred in Siam since the relations
hot ween that country and France had
b-eome strained, and said that the
British government had neither such
sufficient nor precise information as
would enable it to form a conclusion
as to the merits of the conflict. Sir
Edward added that the only part of
llie French ultimatum to Siam which
concerned Great Britain was that relating to territorial arrangements
between France and Siam. Tho government had determine.] to send Lord
Dnfferiii, the British ambassador * to
France, back to Paris with A view to
securing an immediate exchange of
views with tho French government ou
this point. The matter would lie conducted iu an amicable spirit.

repeal of the Sherman law. No. 2.
What measure should be substituted
for the Sherman law if they do not
favor its unconditional repeal. No. 8.
Whether or not the extra session of

should be repealed conditionally but
they do not agree as to what should
be substituted for it. Nearly all the ���
western and some of the southern
statesmen favor the absolute free coinage of silver. Several of them refer
vaguely to a gold conspiracy and
other condemn the crime of 1R78. when

the replies from Republicans a** well as
Democrats, favor tariff legislation by
the special session, but most of them
say the tariff question has been
dwarfed by the financial problem and

A Strike Inovltltb] ���.
London, July 21 -Action was taken
to-day by tho represjutuiives of the
coal miners that renders a prolonged
strike an absolute certainty. The con-t
fereuce of tho Miners' Federation at
Birmingham yesterday appointed a
deputation to meet the representatives
of the Mine O.vners' association. Tue
meeting was held in this city to da,-,
and was fruitless of un amicable ngr.M-
inent. Benjamin Pickurd, M.P., vice-
president of the Miners'National union
refused either to accept a reduction of
wages-twenty-live per cent., or one
penny���or to submit the question to
arbitration. The mine owners, he
said, iu giving notice of their intention
to make a 25 |ier cent cut in wages had
thrown down tlie gauntlet and war
WUS inevitable.

together iu a manner so as to make it
appear thu" the thumb was holding

was 124 inches, and its greatest breadth

Oulekallvor Mining.
Mercury or quicksilver is one of the
so-called noble mentis, and is remarkable as being the meal that is fluid at
ordinary temperature. It is of a silvery white color, with a striking
metall c lustre. When pure it runs in
small spherical drops over smooth surface, but when not pure, the drops
assume an elongated or tailed form,
an,, ofieu leave gray slain ou the surface uf glass or porcelain
In California are huge deposits of
mercuiy or quicksilver. 11 the Inst
century Mexico was almost entirely
dependent upon Spa in and Peru for the
quicksilver needed for the amalgamation process. As this process was
indigneous to Mexico nnd was also a
national industry peculiarly suited to
her resources, it was felt to be specially
desirable that quicksilver mines should
be developed on her own soil.
It woulu lie supposed that wilh their
natural acuteness in mineralogy and
sharpened by a promised reward on
every hundred weight of the metal
produced, it would have been sooner
discovered, but it was not uiitill lute in
1S45, when Andreas Castillero, a
Mexican officer who was on his way lo
Sutter's Fort, passed through Santo
Clara. The ore was shown to him by
Indians who used it, in the crude
state, to paint their huts and missions.
Cassillero experimented with tho ore
and tested it, found out what it wns
and laid claim to the property as a
mine. Work was begun almost immediately under Castilleros' direction,
gun barrels Ileitis; used for retorts.
These insignificant reduction works
have grown to very imposing .dimensions, but the cro in sight is no longer
so satisfactory. This is known us the
New Ahnadeii mine, near San Jose,
Cala. The Guadalupe mine is also
near Custillero's big find.

would bo of much interest to our readers. There was one however which is
of groat importance, concerning as it
does the mining interests of the camp :
The International Has a Clear
Title,
and tliis is the important decision arrived at, Cham McKay's claim that ho
had a kind of an interest in the property wns struck out an I ho cannot again
interfere with the mine or its sale.
The only bourse open to him is to take
proceedings in a civil court against
Archie McMurdo, if he thinks he has
any money co uing to him. Therefore
to buy this gold mine does not mean
purchasing a law suit, as has so often
been stated. T ip public are delighted
