certainly   not   refuse.     Although the
alleged treaty contains provisions thut

whicli this   week   addressed a memorandum to   the chancellor, Prince Vou,

tlie empire   must   secure it foothold in

The  association    therefore,   requests
that the   chancellor   lake steps to obtain u territorial   acquisition   wssbed

Rov. Father Coccola, of St. Eugene
Mission, returned on Monday from a
trip to New Westminster, where he
hud beeu conferring with the bishop
concerning the trouble with the Indians on tbe Kootenay reclamation
lands. He was sent there to investigate. At first the natives were excited and would not listen to any settlement, but before he had been there
10 days, they agreed to put the matter
in his hands. It is now decided thut
they will abandon section "A," over
which the trouble arose, and a separate section has been set aside for them.
The trouble is now nt an end.
Father Coccola recently made a sale
of the Nip and Tuck placer claim on
Wild Horse creek for Henry Rogers,
who is in St. Mary's hospitul. New-
Westminster, for the sum of $5,010.
It was purchased bv Mr. Harry Sy-
mons. barrister, Calgary, for other
parties. The claim joins some hydraulic ones on Wild Horse Creek, uud
is considered to be a very valuable
He also states that mining matters
in Fort Steele and vicinity are progressing favorably. The Montana
Company have made a new strike on
tho Wild Horse opposite the Nip and

SATURDAY, NOV. 2, 18'J5.
In accordance with theac* passed
Inst session by the provincial legislature, for the promotion of the mining
industry, the government have decided to appoint a provincial mineralogist
and the position has been offered to
Professor A. H. Curly le, lecturer on
Minoralogv at McGill University,
Montreal. Much care has been taken
to select a thoroughly capable man,
and Hon. Col. Baker, minister of
mines, when on his .last visit East,
consulted Or. Dawson upon the subject. Dr. Dawson suggested Professor
Carlyle as eminently fitted for the
position. Professor Carlyle, who is a
nephew of the great Carlyle, wns born
ill Canada some thirty-eight yeurs ago

Nelson Tribune: When in Vancouver last week the president of the
Canadian Pacific stated that bis coin-
puny did not intend to build any more I
railways for a time otlier than short

Some years ago, two officers of the
British army in India had a difficulty
which resulted in a duel. The colonel,
tbe challenged party wus an old campaigner who had won his laurels iu
the Crimea, and was a most gallant
soldier. The choice of weapons being
his, he named pistols, and elected that
the affair should occur in a dark room.
We secured a room twenty feet square
(says the narrator of the incident),
closed every crevice thut would admit
light, placed our men in corners
diagonally opposite, uud withdrew.
Each man was provided with three
charges, and when these were exhausted, we lushed in to gather up the
mutilateu remains. Each man stood
erect und soldier-like in bis corner,
untouched; but directly behind the
officer who hud given the chullenge
were three bullet holes made by the
colonel's pistol, "How is this?" said
a grizzled major; "had you been
standing here when those shots were
fired, you would have been killed.
Tbe culprit was forced to admit that
he bad dropped to ono knee. "You
are a coward, sir, and unfit for the
company of soldiers and gentlemen !"
cried the major. "Hold ou major !'"

Barney Barnato, the circus man,
made his beginning by a small but fortunate investment in Kaffirs, which
yielded hiin the returns of an Aladdin.
Witt, the full courage of his good luck
he rushed in again with all his winnings, and returned a millionaire. In
a delirium of bravado he played again
and again, always winning.
To-dav he is seriously set down as a
man worth 8100,000,000 or more. One
of the smallest of his assets is a bank
which was originally capitalized at
$12,500,000. Theciipital stock is now
valued at $45,010,000. The $5 shares
opened ut a premium of from $15 to
$20.   They ure now beyond price.
This is against the rainy day which
may come. Most of Barnato's wealth
Is in the Kaffir, stocks, in which he
originally gambled on margin,, but
which be now owns outright. If be
could sell these properties at market
value be would, without doubt, have
more money than any other man iu
the world. He could not, of course,
negotiate so huge a transaction without precipitating a panic and destroying the value of the property.
This end-of-century Aladdin is not
exactly the conventional king of finance. Neither is lie of the " Coal Oil
Johnny type. With a thousand and
one daily dissractious and annovances
l.e is a good fellow. Raised suddenly
from obscurity to an eminence for
which most ...en are striving, he is not
puffed up. At his office in the city he
is as inaccessible as the Emperor of
China. At the West End town house
which he has loused from Enrl Spencer, lie is nt home to all comers. To
nil bis friends he is "Barney," and
everybody.is his friend.
His favorite, and indeed, only, reception hour is tbe hour of breakfast.
That nieal lie takes with his wife nnd
a thoroughbred bulldog. Mrs. Barnato is u tall brunette, whom fortune
has in no wuy spoiled. Hospitality is
her religion und her husband is its
A great man must have at least one
eccentricity. Barney, Barnato's is his
socks, which he wears of white silk.
The wicked have no rest, nor the
new rich any repose. Even at his
breakfast table Barnato is besieged.
To him at hour come all the cranks
and beggars, and flatterers, and wide*
ejed projectors.   He sees them all.
An English reporter who wns admitted to this levee the other day
found himself one of an incongruous
crew. One man had come with well
nigh a continent of land to sell���it
oui i' needed developing. Tliere was a
woman wiih a choice bit of old lace.
Several gentlemen who had written
highly meritorious plays were present
to represent that they needed only a
little capital to enrich the dramatic
firmament. Some "puis" from the
city had dropped in to ask how the
new Alladiu was after the night's
banquet. Some old professional
friends of the circus days had a warm
corner.   And there were others.
To one and all of these Barney talked in turn, managing the while to advise his wife, play with his dog, counsel his son and admire his pretty
daughter. The swift dismissal of
business, great or small is one of Barney Barnato's many strong points.
" Don't be serious," he said to the
English reporter. " I'm never serious
out of business. Life is too short to
be serious, and don't let that artist
sketch my white socks."
Questioned as to his methods of
business, and how he managed his
multifarious affairs, he said: " 1
have got them all in my head or at my
fingers' ends. I trust absolutely to
memory, and never   make any notes."
Then Barney flitted away to Mr.
Haddon Chambers, who was present,
and with whom he is collaborating on
play. It will be a comedy. ���London

A $30,000 Gold  Drill icer   Just  Completed In  VumroHve.'.
Vancouver World: Since the 17th
of April last there has been in the
course of construction in this city one
of the largest mining machines ever
constructed on the Pacific coast. It is
being built by the B.C. Iton Works
for the B.C. Gold Dredging company,
under the direction of W. A. Shahan,
superintendent of the company and inventor of several of the appliances
made use of. The plant is located on
a scow 30ft. x 100ft. and the cost completed will be about $30,000, The
principle on which it is to be worked
involves the use of a suction pump
and vacuum chambers. Boulders up
to 12 inches in diameter will come up
through the pipe but everything down
to three inches in diameter will be
screened out from the chambers buck
into the river again. Then by the use
of a suction piiinp all the remaining
material is carried up on to the grizzly
bars and everything down to pieces
i of un inch iu diameter is then removed and sent back to the river. The
residue passes on to the sluice wuy.
Now here is mot a new feature in the
shape of au electro magnetic machine.
Miners know the trouble that is given
by black sand in the matter of catching fine gold. They have been used
that would take away the black smid
but do not save it. The duty of Mr.
Shuhan's invention is both to seperate
it from the gold and to preserve it.
He estimates that it will be caught at
the cost of $1 a .or. A World reporter was shown to-day by Mr Shahan
the principle of the apparatus. The
material delivered by the grizzlies
passes over a revolving cylinder un an
endless apron. Beneath this apron in
a water tight box there are magnets
set all the way from where the material will first drop on the apron to a
point below where the water and gold
sand will naturally flow off. By this
means tho black sand will be allowed
to drop below where an automatic
carrier will pick it up and tote it along
to a sack. When a sack is full its
weight will causo a bell to ring and
the attendant will remove it and put
another sack on the rack. The grizzlies will discharge on both sides of
the scow so that there will be two sets
of sluice boxes and two of the electro
magnetic black sand catchers. The
plant has a capacity of 3,500 cubic
yards every 24 hours. ' The main driving engine is a steeple compound with
a driving capacity of 150 I.H.P. The
boiler is the very best marine type.'
The scow is fitted with wraping gear,
steam windlasses and capstan. It lias
also a complete electric plant, so thut
work can be carried on at night as
well as by day. A crew of 12 men is
sufficient for a 24 hour shift. The
men have comfortable quarters on the
upper deck of the scow aud the way
the machinery is arranged there will
be no heavy work to be done, unless it
be that of feeding the furnace. As
stated Mr. Shahan is the superintendent of the company, J. E. W. McFar-
lane is president and J. W. Campion
is secretary. It is expected that it
will be ready to start for the river
early next week. The shareholders of
the company recognize that, as witb
all mining schemes, theirs partukes of
the nature of a gamble but they think
that the odds ure on their side.

Adrift und Holple-s.
San Francisco, Oct, 2(j-The British
ship, Aberfoyle, Capt. Wallace, arrived in port, seventy-four days from
Newcastle with a cargo of coal. Early
this year she sailed from Fredirick-
stadt for Newcastle, arriving at the
latter port after a thrilling voyage.
Capt. Geo. Roberts wus iu co.nmai.il.
When out only a few days he began
drinking and wound up with a big
spree. Unfit for handling the vessel
and shutting himself in the cabin l.e
resigned command temporarily to the
first officer, Pe.cy Norton. In a severe
storm the mate was washed ovorboard
and the ship wns left to the mercy of
the elements without a pilot to steer
her through the peril. The man at
the wheel kuew enough to keep the
vessel's head to sea, but more than
once the crew 'despaired of their lives
as wave after wave broke over her
sides. The captain still kept up his
spree and became so violent that tbe
crew placed him under restraint. He
swallowed the contents of a bottle of
carbolic r.cid in the cabin and died.
The body of the captain was buried
the following duy and tbe boatswain
assumed command of the ship. But
the vessel might as well have been
without a compass, thero being no one
left who understood navigation. For
weeks the ship drifted aimlessly in the
ocean, the men being without the
slightest knowledge of their whereabouts. The steamer Tagliaferro wus
finally sighted aud signals of distress
raised. The captain of *,the steamer
lowered a boat and sent his second
mate to the Aberfayle. On learning
the cause of the vessel's distress the
master placed the second mate in
charge of her and she was sailed to
Melbourne. At the latter port Capt.
Wallace took command.
He's In the Asylum Now.

Armenians lliitirllurod  mil ISl.lneil lit
The St alio.
Constantinople, Oct. 28.���Another
terrible massacre of Armenians accompanied by the outraging uf women, is
reported to have occurred quite recently in the district of Baihurt, between
Erzerouin and Trebizond, According
to advices received here a mob of
about MO Mussellmans and Lazes, the
great majority of whom were arm nl
with Martini-Henri rifles, made an
attack upon Armenians inhabiting
several villages in that vicinity, nnd
set fire to their houses and schools.
When the Armenians fled in terror
from the dwellings they were shot
down us they ran, and a considerable
number of men and women who were
ciinturod by tlie rioters, were fastened
to stakes and burned alive. -Vny Armenian women who full into the bauds
of tlie mob, it is asserted, were outraged and brutally mutilated. Churches
were desecrated uud llie villages attacked were pillaged. Cattle and all
portable property of any value belonging to Armenians were driven away
and carried olf by the rioters. During
tbe disturbance 1">0 Armenians are reported to have been killed.
Tbe few surviving villagers applied
tu tlie governor of Baibuu for protection, wbo after bearing their com-
plaint, sent three policemen to the
scene of tbo massacre, but not until
iiftrr the slaughter hud ended. Turkish officials, it, is claimed, know who
are the ringleaders of the outbreak in
Baiburt district, hut apparently no
sleps have been taken to arrest tliein.
Turks, it is stated, also attacked
Armenians in the district of Otiimish-
dagh. near Tribozo.nl. und slaughtered
many ef them. The number of Armenians massacred at Erzingjnn is
now said to be several hundred.
Constantinople, Oct. 27.- The governor of Bitlis bus telegraphed to the
porte thnt armed Armenians attacked

latter were nnur.ned nnd were obliged
to defend thciufolvos with stones and
sticks. The troops and pendnruies
