(Tho Globe deals In ntvonir levins
with the Senate's rejection cf tho
redistribution bill and says: '-The
Question now to be dutemiitied ia tvheth
er or not the Liberals of Canada belong
to at, inferior order ol mankind, whether or not tbey are political ITitlanders
thoir own country, whether or not
Conservative politicians are divinely
commissioned to i;overn through a
partisan group in the senate, when
ejected from the treasury benches by a
vote of the people.-' It refers foaevere
term's to Sir Uackenaie Bowel!, and
says that no body of Canadian citizens
oan afford to aocepc a position of political inferiority-. It. soys this is the
great question. "It la a time for the
Liberals ef thewestand tho Liberals of
Ontario to stand together and determine that not one inch of ground will
be snrrotitlcrod in tbe federal or provincial sphere until political equality for
tbe Liberals ie re established in Canada.
The plain policy of the senate is to
bedevil and dierupt the Liberal party,
to wear out disrupt the Liberal party,
to wear out tee patience of the puople,
to create the Impression that the Liberals cannot govern."
Canada oannot afford to have two
governments The House of Commons
bas been returned to represent the
people, und has passed * bill to amend
tbe representation of Ontario. The
Senate bss kicked out the bill by A
majority el S3. Who ia to govern

bird, Collett and "Robertson, hearing
el the valuable assays obtained on
this property, took a bond on it for
���40,000 before sny development work
Md been done,    "Within six months
they re-bonded it fcr 5100,000 nnd still

Elephant, and so much was he impressed with the "Red Lino tbat he
offered an advance on tbe last bond,
and eays that if anybody had told him
what he has hitnsulf seen of the property he would not havo credited such
statements. He sampled the ore care*
fully and obtained an average assay of

On Monday E. A. Haggen visited
this property aud arrauged for development work lining started on it on
behalf of tbe Certainty Gold and Win-
lug Company. Tlm locatiou ia within
ton miles of Goldon and a first-class
wagon road can be built to the property should development woik prove ic
to be tbo "grass root shipper" tliat tbo
surface indicates. A trail bai boen
opened to within 400 hoi k<Iow the
mine at a point whei-o tbe camp site
wilt be located, and development work
has been at aft ml hi tho shape of open
outs on the vein outcropa with a view
to determining certain characteristics
of the property ns a guide to future

property Includes three claims, tbe

and which claims are all under bond

���ill vs. Town.
A return match between the Mill
and Town football teams was played
on Wednesday evening before a large
crowd of spectator*. The teams lined
up as follows; Mux-Goal, Sinclair;
Backs, Saundureon, Smith; Half backi
Grady, Bookhout, Moore; Forwards,
Ptarce, Laiiour, Brook, Flynn, Main-
tyre. Town���Goal, Rae; Backs, Wilson, Taylor; Half Backs, Stalker,
Alexander, Field; Forwards, Weeks,
Smith, Fallis, Wcatman, King.
Considerable time was lost in start-
Ing the game owing to the dllatorinesb
oE lorn* of tbe Town players. For the
. fiwt lew minutes of tbe game tke Town
appeared to bo too anxious to win,
consequently the play on their part
waa rather loose, they soon settled
down, however, and the play was confined throughout to the Mill territory,
ao much so in fact that the Towu goalkeeper only hnd one kick at tho ball
during theoutire game. Iu tbetirat
half the Town should hnve scared re-
peato'lly but owing to lack of practice
wero unable to take advantage of the
opportunities which offore 1 themselves.
One goal wns scored, however, by
Westmau, wbo put in a grounder
which Sinclair failed tocntch. Iu the
second half anothor point was added
for the Town by a beautiful shot by
Fallta from a scrimmage iu front of
goal. No further scoring was done
anil the game ended in a win for Iho
Town by 2 goals to 0.
Tjikeu throughout tbe game wns a
very rugged exhibition of football,
and a good deal of unnecessary talk
was indulged in. Notwithstanding
the fact that seven 1 changoa bad been
mado in the Mill team with tbe idea of
strengthening it, and thnt they had
been oat practising nearly every night
since tho 1st of July, the g.uue put up
hy them was very inferior to ihe one
played by them on Dominion Day.
W. CVgnn, of ibe Mil, acted as
refeveo and bin decisions wero impartial and taken all through were
very fair although in innuy cases the
playera did not agree with bim. It is
hopod if the warns come together again
io mush timo will not be taken up in
questioning the decisions of the referee
as it proves tedious to thu spectators
snd very of (fn creates ill feeling among
the players, who should remember that
whatever the referee says has to go.
An amusing incident occurred In the
first half when Stalker of the Town
took a oold bath in a ditch of water
whioh ran alongside the field.
Palliser was also to the fore in helping
out tho arrangement by giving his
undertaking to join in transferring hia
hanking business to Golden. The
people of the town and district are
under a heavy debt of gratitude to
Mr. Jones for the business-like way in
which be bas taken up this matter
and the evident success whicli has
resulted. The bank will open next
week in the Alexander Block.
The Imperial Will Open.
Thanks to the splendid services for
the town of F, \V, Jones, flscrctary-
Treasurer of the Lumber Company, an
arrangement; has beeu made whioh
will result iu the Imperial Bank opening a bianch In Golden. Business has
been muoh hampered hers from want
of suoh an institution, which cannot
fail to be a great factor in the renewed
prosperity which is dawning over
Golden end the district of North Kast

Tiirsm.n hill group.
As regards the property generally,
the existence of the inimeuso quartz
ledge is proven beyond doubt, yet such
galena as lias boon found does not continue in quantities to warrant working.
The expectation of tho owners is that
tbe property will turn out to be sufficiently high in gold to be profitably
worked, I ara satisfied that the gold
does not exist as freo gold and that
such gold as thero is occurs in the
iron pyrites, which in working would
have to be concentrated. Fine grinding would have to he resorted to and
the concent ration effected with suitable
appliances, Tbo future of the properties, it may be said, therefore, depends
on the percentage of iron pyrites in the
rock, as the grade of the concentrates
wiil remain fairly constant, and from
my observations values will not exceed
$100 to tbe ton of concentrates. As
far as was pointed out to mo, or as I
could see at any point on the property,
the percentage of iron pyrites in the
ledge, as It would have to be mined,
did not exceed one or, at tho outside,
two per cent.
Tbere are several log buildings at
the mine, office, bunk-houses, blacksmith shop, stable, etc., now somewhat out of repair, yot serviceable if
ever required.
On a steep saud Muff, On the shore
of the Upper Columbia Lake, tbere baa
been erected u "60-ton Lend Concentrator," constructed by the Chicago
Iron Works. The plant consists of
the usual buildings and bins, and the

A surface tramway connects tbo
mine ore-bins with the overhead concentrator ore-bins, and is equipped
with Iron ote cars which run down by
gravity and are hauled up empty by

was likewise provided for taking tho
concentrates to the dock to be loaded

The country rock Is a quartzose'
limestone which appears to be much
faulted and broken, there being evidence of a Series of faults running N.

hills. Along ths lino of one of these
faults there is evidence of a crushing;

this crushed material had been mor*
or less cemented with lime which htm
filtered through it; tbe waters in the
lame way bringing copper in solution,
Which, deposited in the crushed tene\
now exists as bine and green carbonates, occurring in masses, mixed with
the broken rook. These masses are
sometimes of considerable size, hilt af
yet have not shown any continuity.
Some 20 to 30 tons of selected ore
were on the dump at tbe time of my
visit, of which I took a sample and
found it to assay 17.6 per cent, copper,
but with no gold or silver values.
Lake YieW'inirioral claim is a \eti:
tion 800 feet higher np the hill, owned
by F. W. H-Jlholland, of Bossland,
but it is merely a prospect with little
work done on it. A 2-incb scat* o��
red iron oxide is exposed in a small
cut, but I could see no mineralization
of value.
A location on the wouctairi tc tha
north of tbe main creek, about six
es above the North Fork, or 23
miles from the "Salmon Beds," Elevation, 6,800 to G,900 feet. Ownod by
and bonded to tho same parties ae the
Hot Punch, presently  to be described.
The point where tbe mineral was
discovered is a steep bluff of rock
standing ont of the hillside wh-'ch had
elsewhere a somewhat regular elope'oi
about 20s. In the fuce of this bluff,
aud necessitating very little work tk
expose it, there is a great blow-out of
quarts, over 160 feet wide, through
whicli, running in all directions, p.i-6
stringers of galena up ts 8 inches
wide, with occasional wldenings to 24
or (10 Inches of solid oro, Occasional
streaks of gray copper also out tho
quartz and likewise the galena.
1 was unable to find any definite
lodge of quartz leading to this large
surfaco oxposuro/and ara somewhat at
a loss to definitely classify the exposure from the development dono.
About 60 feot below thoosposm,
and abont the samo distance to ihe
north-east, a tunnel has been run iif
60 feet, N. 02' W. This tuaud wa?
expected to cut the ore body at a depth
but had failed to do so. Galena shows
in tbo roof at onl; one spotj and there,
not very strongly.
Tbe country rock, as exposed in ihti
tunnel, is quartz-schists and quarts'
ites. Abovo, und to tiie west of the
''blow-out," thero is an exposure of a
rock composed of qnnrtz and lime, but
only slightly exposed. A little further
down the hill and underlying aro K-
poBures ot black shales.
The surface exposures of ore are vst-y
considerable, and the ore is of good
quality. The gal-ma occurs both Iti
large crystalline masses and also In
the finer crystalline form. A sampttf
of the coarse-grained galena taken by
me gave on aesuy, 76.2 p.c. lead, DI
oss. silver. The gray copper is also*
present In very appreciable quantities.
There is certainly a remarkably good
surface showing, and the fact tbat thtf
tunnel failed to roach it at a depth
does not, to my mind, prove that thw
oro does not go down, lu my judgment the tnnnel should have betftf
driven further to the touth to dotsts
mine the point definitely.

The Proposal Has Passed Its Second
Reading and Will Undoubtedly
Be Passed Entirely Today.
The Hague, Jnly 21.���The third
committee of the international conference met today, M. Bourgeoise, of
Frauce, presiding. At the opening of
the sitting the Roumanian. Grecian
nnd Servian delegates jointly moved
the total suppression of the five articles
xelatiug to international courts of inquiry. M. Beldiman thu Roumanian
deputy, wus their spokesman, and addressed the committee for au hour. He
claimed that tho proposition fora court
ot iuquiry was not contained in Count
Muravietfs circular, uud waa contrary
to tbe principle of national sovereignity. Ruomuuiu, he said, would gladly
pledge herself to the rest of the arbitration scheme, but it was impossible
to fulfill thfcae and other obligations.
Chevalier Desohamp, the Helgiau delegate, and Prof. MaarteuH, Russia, de-
feuded the articles, which were finally
put-wed on the lirst reading, the three
protesting ftates recording their objection.
Iu tbe afternoon Prof. Maartens said
that when.every thing had been done to
protect the weaker states against the
stronger, the former thas obtaining a
shield, thu commission of inquiry proving this���ho was willing to make some
farther concessions in the way of making the matter more optional. These
concessions wero accepted by the
smaller powers und ^proposal passed ita
second reading. The arbitration
scheme will urobably be passed entirely to-morrow.

Before the Democratic Nation*)
Chicago, July 21.���Oliver P. Belmont, of New Vork, was asked last
night if William C. Whitney's sudden
departure for Europe was iu the nature
of u mission. He said he understood
that Mr. Whitney meant to see Admiral Dewey and persuade the seaman
to let his name be presented to tbe national convention as a candidate for
the nomination. "Not that I believe
Mr. Whitney will succeed in his object," continued Mr. Belmont.. "1 do
not think the admiral would consent to
become a candidate.''
"Do you think if the admiral were
brought to consent he oould beat Mr.
Bryan in the convention."
"Candidly," replied Mr. Belmont,
"I do not think he conld. Mr. Bryan.
so far aa I oan fathom, seems well nigh
the unanimous choice of the whole
party. Assuredly he is the natural
logical candidate, and toduy he is invincible."
Trieste, Anstrla, July 21. ���The
United States cruiser Olympla, with
Admiral Dewey on board, arrived here

The Olmpiu will remain here for
about two weeks. The admiral's health
is perfect, and he has not decided
whether he will go to Carsbad, as had
been announced, bnt it is not probable
tbat he will do so. The admiral intends to visit Vienna. The foreign

Vancouver, July 21.���Mr. J. E. Gi*
rouard, who passed through tho olty
last fall en route to Dawson, where he
was appointed a member of the council
of administration for tbat district, is
ou his way east He is authority for
the statement that the royalties so far
tnis year will exceed tbe suir of $800,*
000, He estimated the total output
from tho mines to be at least $20,000,-
000. Ho explained the discrepancy
upon tho royalty as compared with the
total output on tbe ground/ that the
former hod been diminished, because it
wus now only levied on all sums over
|5,000 instead of over $2,000 as formerly. No claim, be said, was worked
at all, unless it wus proving rich, because labor and otber expenses have
been so high thnt practically tbe paying claims were confined to the five
principal creeks worked last year.
Lizzie Irwin Mtoslng.
Winnipeg, July 21.��� Little two-year-
old Lizzie Irwin, daughter of Mr.
Geo. Irwin, a farmer of Stony Moan-
tain, wandered away Irom her home ou
Wednesday at noon aud her parents
have beeu unable to find her since.
The little girl was playing with her
brother when she became annoyed at
him for not giving np one of bis playthings and declared she wonld run
away. Her brother who is not more
than four or five years old, seeing his
little sister put her threat into effect
and commence to run away from him
went at once to tell his mother. When
Mia. Irwin came out.to look for Lisale,
tbe little girl was nowhere lo be seeu.
Thinking the child could not be far
away tbe mother was at first only
slightly anxious, bnt nuable to find the
child she became alarmed. Au honr's
search of all on the furm could not find
the little one. Night came on and still
little Lizzie conld uot be found, though
searchers from Stonewall and Argyle
lent every assistance to the distructed
parents. Their efforts were of no avail
and morning came without the girl being fonud. '
Yesterday morning Mr. J. F. Gamp-
bell, proprietor of the Mansion house,
who is a brother-in-law to Mr. Irwin
was notified, and with the asisstance
of Alderman Spoil's, tried to secure a
bloodhound to trace tbe child, bnt was
unable to find a suitable animal. Mr.
Campbell took the Stonewall train to
nelp in the search, bat np to a late
hour last night the little girl hod not
been found. It is believed the child
fell asleep on tbe prairie and wakening
np after darkness had fallen aud could
not find her way home and wandered
away. Searching parties were ont in
every direction all day.

" A living mind in a dead body " is the way paralysis is described. Next to death
itself paralysis is most to be dreaded. And yet many people who have nervous disorders,
which are leading directly to paralysis, lose sight of the terrible ending awaiting them.
Overwork, worry, irregular habits, or excessive alcoholic or sexual indulgence, are
among the causes of this disease. The first symptoms are nervousness, sleeplessness,
irritability, loss of appetite, memory, and business capacity, lack of confidence, gloomy
forebodings and despondency, headache and general weakness of the body. When these
symptoms appear you can be sure that the nerves are exhausted, and unless quickly
restored will ultimately become paralyzed.

ire Consequeatlj Tied Vf.
New York, Jnly 18.���The strike situation in Brooklyn remains unchanged.
The striking employees are even mam
determined than tbey were yesterday
and tbe management of the Rapid
Transit lines is obdurate and unflinching. Oan were ran on most of tha
lines governed by tho Traction oompany, from early morning nntil '7
o'olook this evening, but after sundown there waa a considerable falling
off in tbe service and by 9 o'olook not
a oar wat moving on any of tbe lines
affected by the striking motarmen and
conductors. The roads comprising tha
Nassau system were more affeuted and
crippled. None of the striking employee) returned to work and most of
them were busy during the day In In*
flnenoing non*union men on the other
lines to quit work. In this respect the
striken were partially successful, bnt
they made no inroads on the running
of the Putnam avenne oan. Tbit Una
It praotioallv intact, not more than a
half dosen ot itt employees being affiliated witb the striken. Tbe Goner
Island Railway company, reaped a nob
harvest on all its lines during the day.
Tbe Franklin avenue, Smith, and Jay
street. Hamilton Ave., Do Kalb avenne
lines were running on full time and
carried a great number of passengen
thronghout the day and night. The
Coney Island Oo. lived np to its agreement with the employees and consequently ita business was not interferred
with in tbe slightest.
General Master Workman John M.
Parsons was in conference for several
honn tonight with the executive committee Ot the employees of tbe Metropolitan Strent Railway company of the
borongb of Manhattan. After tbe conference Mr, Parsons practically announced that a strike of the Metropolitan employees is now inevitable unless
President Vreelttnd recedes from tbe
position be bas taken.
Cleveland, July 18.���Tbe inauguration of a second strike by tbe employees
of the Consolidated railroads wis a
oomplete surprise to the public this
morning, and nearly so to tbe company.
Ever since the men returned to work
tbree weeks ago, nnder an agreement
prepared by a committee of tbe city
oonucil, and signed by representatives
of the striken, and of the oompany,
there had been frequent complaints ou
the part of the men that the oompany
wot not llvluB'up to tne agreement.
The presence on the oan of the nonunion men who were retained after the
settlement of the strike, was a bone ot
contention, and a crisis wot reached
yesterday, when, as Is claimed a nnmber of onion men were discharged for
refusing to go out on cart with nonunion men. A meeting followed last
night, and at 8 o'olook thit morning
the decision to strike wu retched.
All tbe lines were lied np from live
Until after eight o'clock, wben the operation ot the Euclid avenue line with
non-union men under police protection,
wot undertaken. Can wen run at Ave
minute Interval! on that lino until
evening, but no attempt-was made to
move con on other lines. Henry A.
Everett, president of the oompany, issued a statement thit evening, in
which he says the terms ot the agreement witb the striken hod been strictly adberred to, bnt that it wu impossible to inaugurate all th* reforms
promptly because of the continued interference with tbe non-union orews
and be holds the union men directly
responsible for this.

kttctcu the expense of housekeeping ti
colctinted to stagger the yonng mnn who
contemplates matrimony. Huviny lived
iu lotfeiugs or boarding bouses during his
bachelorhood, he naturally looks forward
to a home when be marries. In reckoning up tbe expense! of housekeeping, he
findi bis salary insufficient to cover
them; therefore marriage is out of the
question for awhile. As he grows older
the habits ot bachelorhood become fixed,
aad the inclination to marry grows weaker. If be could be convinced that economy In the kitchen in becoming a part of
every girl's education, tbere would be a
radical chauge in his ideas and more
homes Instead of mere abiding places.
When the wife brings *a dowry, even a

house and' family taxes a small salary

snid: Tbe woman whom such a man
would choose would be one who knew
the value of money, because she was
used to earning It, and mnuy unnecessary expenses would be avoided. Careful planning and supervision will accomplish wonders with a small income, will
utilize the odds and ends In the larder,

and also the explanations. Feeling tbat
be bad failed, he said:
"Bishop Williams smiles. What hat
be to say abont tt?" ,

"that '(he mess of Benjamin was fonnd
to be greater than the mesa of any of

In tbe bushmen of Australia we find,
perhaps, tbe lowest order of men that
are known. They are so primitive that
they do not know enough to bnild even
the simplest forms of huts for shelter.
The nearest they could approach to It
is to gather a lot of twigs and grass,
and, taking them into a thicket or jnn-
"*le, tbey bnild a nest for a home, much
as does a bird. The nest is usually built
large enough for the family, and if the
loiter be very numerous then the nests
are of a very large size.
Into this place they all tnrn and
ennggle and curl np together like so
uini*y kittens. Sometimes the foliage
will grow together and for a sort of
natural covering, bnt there 1bnever any
attempt at constructing a protection
from the rain and storms, and it is a
niiitvel how they endure them.
' Hut, (hough tho bushmen of Australia
are the very lowest In the scale of ig-
nurnnce, they possess a rare instinct,
that equals that of many animals and
is in its way as wonderful as man's reason It is almost Impossible for them
tn be lost. Even if tbey be led away
from their home, blindfolded, for miles,
wben released tbey will unerringly turn
in tho right direction and make tbeir
way to their neat borne, and, though
these are all very sluiilur, tbey never
make a mistake.���St- Louis Globe*
