time recommending that the wing dam
be extended a distance of 450 feet
which would turn tlie river from its

stating that the Govt. Agent would
look into the matter. The Govt,
Agent did not agree with the Town
Committee as to the best means of
preventing further damage being done
and work had already been commenced
to carry out the Govt. Agent's plan.
Mr. Dainard said that he did not
think that the Govt. Agent's plan was
a good one and a number of others
were of the same opinion. After a
few remarks by several of the other
gentlemen present, it was moved by
F. W. Aylmer, seconded by Capt.

Lands & Works be requested to employ a thoroughly competent, engineer
to look into the matter and report as
to the best means of remedying the

Tbe chairman in a few opening remarks stated that the object of the
meeting was to devise means to prevent the river from making further
inroads into the townsite. He then
called on Mr. M. Dainard, as one who
had taken a great interest in the matter, to express his views. Mr. Dainard stated, on behalf of the Town

One Hundred and Fifty-Mile House,
B.C., Oct. 21.-The Cariboo clean-np,
the result of 20 days' run with 2,500
inches of water, is a cone of gold
weighing 2,435 ozs. valued at $41,857.
The sluices only were cleaned up. The
Horse Fly clean-np, the result of 40
days' run with 2,700 inches of water,
is a gold bar weighing l,l51*-ozs.,
valued at $25,150. Cleaning of the
cuts -was not completed. Bed rock
was not cleaned. A strike of rich
gravel in tbe west of No. 1 pit prospects $1 to $8 per pan, Both mines
will be run till frost closes the season.
A big cave-in in pit No. 2 at 3 p.m.
yesterday at the Curiboo mine, Ques-
nello Forks, covered up and killed A.
Budden. No one else was hurt. The
men commenced digging for Budden at
once but have not yet reached him.
They are now laying a string of pipe
to try and sluice him out. The men
were expecting the cave for 20 minutes
and had got their tools all out of the
pit. Budden and McLeod were in the
sluice and all hands out of danger.
Just beforo the fall Budden, for some
unexplained reason, started back up
the sluice and when it fell he ran
ahead of it in the sluico and was
caught and covered up. All the other
men escaped without a scratch. The
monitor was carried into the dump
and the sluices that stood out over the
dump were smashed and broken down
into the dump. Repairs will be made
iu a few days.
Edison und l.olil.
The mining fraternity for the world
over have for years endeavored ta
solicit the services of Edison in solving the problem of economically extracting gold from refractory ores.
Finally this eminent electrician has
consented to devote his energies to this
subject and lias secured a sulphuret
gold mine and is hard at work solving
the problem of working the ores by
electricity. Mr. Ediion says that
tliere are ten principal details to be
mastered and that he has already discovered the methods to be adopted bv
eight of them. Two-tenths of this
problem now remains to be solved.
He has already spent weeks on it and
will continue until he has solved it, as
he is certain it can be done. It may
be asserted ns a fact tbat all sulphur*.
ets, particularly sulphurets of iron
carry gold, Sulphurets cannot possibly penetrate any rock but from
below, therefore, we may naturally
conclude that the heaviest body of
such kind of ore has been invariably
louud to improve in quality with
depth. As abo.it 29-30 of all gold .
contained in the earth is in sulphurets
of rebellious ores, the immense im- ���
portance of Edison's work can be seen
at a glance, and tho mining world will
watch the progress with anxious eyes,
Champion Jim n Prisoner.
Hot Springs, Ark., Oct. 18.-Pugilist James Corbett is a prisoner of tho
United States. As foreshadowed yesterday, a warrant was issued for his
arrest, and it was executed. It charges
that he had threatened, is conspiring,
and is ubout to commit an unlawful
assault upon the person of one Bob
Fitzsimmons. The sheriff in tukihg
Corbett before Judge Kirks, asked that
he be put under bonds to keep the
peace. The order was granted in the
sum of $10,000, but Corbett refused tu
give the bond. Habeas corpus pro.
ceedings will be now taken, and the
point established whether a glove contest is illegal in the State or not.
Later-Sheriff RobbHoupt has gone
to Spring Lake to place Corbett under
formal arrest. He was to have returned with the prisoner at !) o'clock
but the train was late. They will, on
arrival, go to Justice Kirk's office
where the preliminary legal proceedings will be carried out as per programme. Th'-re is no assurance that
Corbett will be released. It will de*
pend upon tbe chancellor's interpretation of tho law. A telegram wus sent
to Dallas last night ordering the lumber on the cars there to be iu readiness
for shipment by noon to-day. The
ground has already been broken for
side-trackage facilities by the Hot.
Springs Railway Co.
The Sheriff arrived with his prisoner at 11:10 a.m., and the preliminary
formalities gone through with. Cor*,

"is loafing around Co.pus Cliristi,

to look as if he did not intend to como

He chafes only that he cannot put iu

SATURDAY, OCT. 21,  1895.
Jinny years have passed away since
the strange events occurred whicli I
am about to relate. I ivns captain of
the s.s. MsiMiiry, of tin oil Planet
Line, carrying passengers nml cargo
botwoen London nnd Bombay. Oil the |
occasion to which I refer, we were
lying at Bombay, expecting to snil for
England in a couple of day s. when it
message was brought to my cnbin tliut
a gentleman wished to see nie. (loin;;
on deck I found iny gentleman to bo a
German gentleman, who introduced
himself as Herr Karl Rcichmunu. He
in formed i-.o tliut lie was it Professor
of Natural History, nnd had been
travelling in India picking up a few
very line specimens of sutikcs,amongst
which he had captured a magnificent;.
lint doadly, "cobra-di-citpello" He
was desirous of securing a passage to
London in tlie Mercury, but before
doing so be wished to know if 1 had
nny objections ti having his snakes
onboard, He assured me they were
carefully secure-] iu two boxes, which
would be kept in his own cnbin, and
woulil always he under bis own personal supervision. I did not like the
idea of having such dangerous live |
stock on board ; but ns lie agreed to
take all responsibility, I ultimately
consented. He at once engaged a lirst
class sabin, nnd arranged to bare Ms
luggage brought on board next day.
Accordingly he appeared on tlie fol-
Iowlug day witb his own personal
luggage, nml two substantial, -.tiongly
bound, but ordinary-looking boxes.
which, he said to nie in it whisper,
contniiipil llie snakes. Having teen
them carefully deposited in bis cabin,
1 cn lied him aside nnd snid I thought
it woul.l !>,' best not to let it lie known
weather bad i'.; influence upon the
spirits of the passengers-; for when
the inevitable attack of mul-demer
was over, they speedily became acquainted with.each otlier, and seemed
to be very happy and comfortable.
Herr Reichinunii, especially, seemed to
become a general favorite with all
classes of passengers, and with tlie
crew also; for by bis droll sayings iu
broken English lie kept everv one in
good humor. Mr. Wilks, on the other
liiiiul wus not well liked, in consequence of the larue way in which he
spoke of himself, together with u habit
of peering into ull corners and asking
endless questions,
J-.S I snid, all went well for tlio lirst
few dnys ; but one morning, about ten
dnys after we bud left Bombay, something occurred which disturbed the
pleasure of the voyage. A few minutes before the breakfast bell rang, I
was on the bridge, when I received a
message that Mrs. Mureton wished to
speak to me in her cnbin without tlo-
lay. I found the worthy lady in such
a state of excitement and distress that
she could scarcely speak, but she miin-
uged tn explain that, having just gone
to her jeivel-eaiie for a brooch which
sho wished to wear, she found the
lock broken nnd several of her most
value articles of jewellery none, among
them a magnificent diamond necklet,
which I instantly remembered having
seen Iier wear once or twice at tlie dinner table,
Naturally, I was very much surprised at her story, and not a little
annoyed at such n, thing happening;
it was the lirst time anything of the
kind hud occurred on board the Mer
cury, However, I tried to calm her
ns well as I cunld, and endeavored to
elicit ns much information from iier as
possible regarding the events of the
previous night. She said that she
distinctly remembered that before retiring to rost she put her jewellery in
the case, locked it, and placed it iu
Iier trunk, but left the trunk unlocked.
She had slept soundly, and bad no
knowledge of anyone having entered
ber cabin ; nor could she believe so bad
she not just discovered the lock of the
case broken and the jewellery gone.
Miss Moreton, who occupied ihe next
cabin, now entered. She also had
slept well, and hud not been disturbed
in any way.
The breakfast bell having now rung,
j I suggested thut we should adjourn to
the saloon and, during the meal, discuss tho matter with the other first
cabin passengers. On hearing what
had occurred, tbey were full of sym-
path for Mrs. Moreton, ami I thought
were all a little uneasy at the idea of a
thief being ou board. Some suggested

having been disturbed iu any wny,
and yet, when he awoke in the morning, whilst bis revolver was under the
pillow, his watch wns gone!
Things were now looking serious.
Thut a thief���a eool and daring one-
was on board was very evident; and
as captain of the ship I felt that I
must, take some definite steps towards
his discovery. I formed the gentlemen, with the doctor and the first
mate into a Committee, and we met
tu consider what plans it would be
best lo adopt. It was again urged
that wo should make an immediate
and thorough search of theeutire ship
After long discussion, however, we
came to the conclusion that since we
had not the slightest clue to the culprit, und-us was pointed out by Mr.
Wilks-that neither the thief nor his
plunder could leave the ship till we
reached land, it would be well to still
further delay such a procedure,
When we met the next morning we
looked at, one another it little eagerly,
wondering which would have to tell of
a visit from the mysterious thief, Mr
Wilks had not yet appeared when we
seated ourselves for breakfast; but
scarcely had we done so when in he
rushed, iu a state of great excitement,
and with his toilet barely completed.
'���The scoundrel! the villain!" he
gasped, "he has stolen my diamond
slur, tny priceless diamond star ! Oh,
the rascally thief!" After a little he
calmed down, and consented to explain
thut when lie was travelling in India
lie had paid a visit to the Rajah of
Hamutpore, who had feted aud honored him, und ou bidding him good-bye
hud presented him with a magnificent
stur-shnped golden ornament studded
witli diamonds. This he had carefully concealed iu its leather case at
tlie bottom of his trunk ; but an awaking this morning he found the trunk
open, and the diamond stur and case
As I paced the bridee that day I
made up my mind that if there was u
theft that night, the very next day
would see the commencement of au
investigation that would not cease until I hud successfully traced the mysterious and daring scoundrel who was
making sud havoc .of our peace of
mind, and enriching himself with our

told all that I knew. And there we

silence���for the horror of the thing
had flashed upon every brain and
stilled every tongue- that inside the
cabin, shut in with a fierce and deadly
cobra, were two defenceless men ; and
that probably within a yard of where
we stood helplessly waiting, one of
them lay dying���breathing out in
agony the lust few moments of his
We could hear Herr Reichman moving about inside, and then we heard
him cry���"I hafe him! I hafe hiin
safe in de box again. You can open
de door new." I wrenched open the
door and rushed in, followed by several of the terror-stricken crowd. The
cabin was unlit save by the bright
moonlight that streamed in by the
little round window, but which revealed Herr Reichmann in his shirt
and trousers, with a blanket over his
arm. But who was this lying on the
floor of the cabin with his limbs twisted in agony, and his face swollen and
discoloured as the poison of the serpent
did its rapid and deadly work? It
was Mr. Wilks! As soon us possible
a strong dose of ammonia was administered by the doctor, but it was of no
avail, his fate was sealed ; and in ten
minutes from the time we found bim,
the last spark of life had fled from the
now repulsive-looking body.

cabins, I heard Heir Reichmann say to

������Acli! I vus doo sleeby for dat,"
responded tho Professor, with a laugh.
������ Goof-night "
I must have slept very soundly for
nu boar or more, when I was suddenly
awakened by u cry as of some one in
terrible agony. I lay for a second or
two, listening breathlessly, but wheu
this was followed by a slight thud
and a groan, I jumped up, and hurrying on some clothes, I rushed ulong
the narrow passage upon which thc
doors of tbe cabins opened. I wus a
little uncertain as to whence the
sound proceeded, but as I passed Herr
Ueichiiiann's door I heard him exclaiming excitedly in German. I turned
the handle to enter, when he stopped
me with a cry���
"Ach, for Heffen's sake, keep the
door shut! Someone hafe let de cobra
loose, nnd idt hafe bitten him!"
I instantly closed the door, and
stood for a moment alone, with a
thousand bewildering thoughts and
oonjectures rushing in upon my brain.
But the shriek of agony and the Professor's cries had roused many of the
passengers, and the next minute a
throng of   half-dressed   persons burst
After having had the corpse conveyed to its proper berth, we all went
buck to our cabins; but for some hours
the startling events chased away all
possibility of sleep from me. I lay
awake asking myself the question
again and again ���What could Mr.
Wilks have been doing in the Professor's cabin ? nnd why should he have
been meddling with the snake-boxes?
At last the thought struck me, could
it be possible that Mr. Wilks and the
mysterious thief were one? and could
he have been there with the intention
uf robbing the Professor, and have
opened the wrong box? The idea
grew upon me. And yet Mr. Wilks
himself had been robbed. But might
it not have been a sham���a story got
up by himself? And so, with perplexing questions arising on every
side, I fell at last into a troubled and
broken sleep.
Early next morning I determined to
put my theory to the test, and I strode
away to the darkened cabin where the
body was lying so stiff and still. As
I looked at it I noticed a curious fact.
The neatly arranged iron-grey hair,
which had always covered the head of
Mr. Wilks, had slipped and fallen off,
showing that the deceased had worn a
wig. and revealing the fact that it had
covered a mass of closely-cropped,
black, curly hair. This discovery
made me more determined than ever to
investigate the matter thoroughly;
and so, having secured Mr. Wilks'
keys, I opened and searched his trunks
and found at the bottom of one of
them Mrs. Moreton's missing jewellery
and Colonel Ogilvie's gold watch, but
not the diamond star which Wilks
professed to have hud given him. und
which probably never existed at all.
The mystery wss now explained. We
bad evidently hnd amongst us, in the
person of Mr. Wilks, a cool, daring
and skillful thief, who meant to take
full advantage of his opportunities
during the passage to relieve us of as
many of our valuables as he could
safely lay his hands on. His declaring himself to be robbed had been a
trick to divert suspicion. His name
"Ephriam P. Wilks," was probably
an assumed one, and his talk about a
book on India a blind; but, search as
I might among his books and pape.ts I
could find no clue to his real identity.
His career on board the Mercury
had, however, come to a tragic end.
Probably he was entirely ignorant as
lie broke it open, and thus distuibed
nnd let loose the cobra, which sprang
nt him and bit him in the face Thus*,
the hand of Fate brought his plans
and his villainies to a sudden and
terrible termination.
When I reached the breakfast table,
I found the Professor explaining that
he had been awakened by "Wilks"'
agonized cry as be fell back, bitten,
from the snake box; and the first
thing he noticed in the dim moonlight
was the cobra in tbe middle of the
floor, hissing angrily. He immediately jumped tip and threw the bed
clothes on the top of the snake, and by
thus rendering it harmless, he with
great difficulty and no little danger,
got it back into the box. He apologized for having kept the snakes in
his cabin without his fellow-passengers' knowledge, but added ��� " I beleef
mine snake hafe acted the part of de
detective, und hafe found out de tief."
"It has," I broke in, as I showed the
watch aud the jewellery, and told
where I had found them.
At noon that day we committed the
bodyol "Ephriam P, Wilks" to the
keeping of the deep.
As we wove being piloted up the
Thames, we were boarded by a cleanshaven, professional-looking gentleman, who introduced himself as a
detective from Scotland Yard, saying
���"I am informed by special wire from
Bombay, that the notorious Jim
I f letcher, who is 'wanted" on half a
dozen charges of forgery-, housebreaking, etc., sailed from thut port for
England bv the Mercury, and that he
is now among your saloon passengers."
"Too late," I replied; "he has already met his doom."���J. B. Trenwitb

Durrani's Nerve.
Durrant bus been talking about thnt
sealed envelope he is alleged to have
spoken to Miss Carrie Cunningham
about. He is not only wrathful, but
professes to bo greatly surprised at the
conduct of the reporter upon whoso
testimony ho thinks the prosecution
will relv to establish its points. '-I
do not liko to suy anything ugainst a
woman," said Durrant, '"but my disappointment is so keen that I can not
keep silent. The reporter lias been
kind to ine in many ways, has given
me repeated assurance in my innocence
and has often snid that I had her
prayers for a speedy termination of
this terrible nightmare. She has repeatedly souelii expressions of opinion
from me. Adhering to an inflexible
rttlo of not denying or endorsing un*, -
thing, whether for or against me, I
always gave her the same ensue .
My time had not come to talk. At a
rectnt call she detailed this dramatic
yarn about my writing a '.i ysteriot s
something which I put in an t live! op-
with a stmt injunction distincth
written on tho outside that it was io
be returned to ine in case of acquittal
or opened in the event of conviction,
These stupid stories i.nnoyed ine, ami
real zing how much talk this would
make. 1 usked her us it favor thai she
make no mention of them in any way,
either to tlie pi'iss or to lhe prosecution. She readily loisentetl to my
request, und even went further, 'If
you doubt me,' she said, 'get your
Bible.' I touk that near book uud
passed it to her. She placed it ou the
wicket door and solemnly swore that
she would make no mention ol it.
Imagine my surprise when the district
attorney asked me about the envelope.
It was no: tbat 1 cared about the
story. It was not true ami 1 had
nothing to fear, und so little it iiupres-
ed me after I suppossed it wus relegated to oblivion, where it belongel, tbnt
I hud absolutely forgolieii it. 1 wrote
a statement, it is true. Everybody
knows that. It was public but somewhat garbled. There wus nothing
mysterious about it and nu envelope
inclosed it. The papers and the people talk of my coolness-tny nerve.
It is nut my fortitude in this hour uf
darkness, it is my ull-tibiding faith in
God that sustains me. I have faith
in His goodness; that He will protein
ine, because 1 am innocent of the.-,
frightful crimes "
