THE EASTERN QUESTION.
War may Break out at any
Moment.
Lord Salisbury hus arrived in
London from his vocation on the
continent. There ure uneasy rumors
at the clubs thut a.uoug tho dispatches in the big bu-;, which was
awaiting Lord Salisbury's arrival,
were telegrams from the British
minister at Rome, indicating thai
the visit of M. DeGiers, tho Russiuu
foreign minister, bad un uufrieudlv
termination, contrary to the newspaper reports, which represent Has
a cordial oouferenoo, It is rumored
that M. DeGiers conveyed to King
Humbert the information .that the
Czar wished to warn him that it was
not to the interest of Italy lo remain
in th..- Dreibnud To this iutiina
tion, though couched iu the politest
of diplomatic language, King Hum
bert is reported to havo cut.-rod un
immediate und strong protest, ami
so abrupt was his speech aud manner
that lhe inten iew was ut once ended,
having lasted less tlmu hull un hour.
It is pretty sale to state that Lor.'
Salisbury did not cut his vacation
Bhortsitnplj on aocunutof the death
of William Henry Smith; tk-ro may
be something in tho report going the
rounds that he hud a prior knowledge of what would be tlio outcome
of tho Ituliun-l'iiBsiun oouferenoo,
and to bo ut home and prepared to
uet iu case affairs took alarming
turns, If tho interview between M.
DeGiers and thu King was of the
nature described, it would sci-m that
Italy would soon Lave need of nil ibe
moral support it in believed I'.ng-
laud, some time ago, offered in lieu
of a formal adhesion to the Dl'oi-
bund. No one anticipates that Lord
Salisbury will ovi-n consider serious
ly tho evacuation of Egypt, and tho
question of the Dardanelles is uot
supposed to be dangerous, It is
another matter as to tho Pamir un
as to Russian encroachments on the
Afghan frontier, It is true, ns reported, that Capt. Tounghusband
has been killed by tho Russians
while attempting to explore the
Piunir. Lord Salisbury, it is expected, will take nieiu measures to
restrain the bolduoss of lbe Rue

A Siberian S-lxile's Escape,
Tho Vancouver Nows-Advertiser of
the llth iust. publishes an account
of the sufferings of Demetrius Kono-
plltBky, who hud been condemned to
tho Siberian mines, but escaped after
six years of terrible suffering and
barbarity nnd arrived al Vancouver
on Monday by the steamer Empress
of India,   If the story told by h'or.o-
pliisliy bo true tin disclosures ftbieh
have been made by George Kenman,
outlier, traveller and lecturer, aro
uotul nil exaggerated.   Ifonoplitsky
was horn al Kazan in lrfol.   He had
boen n printer, afterwards u soldier,
and then had gone into a lawyer's
office,    This  lawyer  established a
democratic newspaper, the name of
which whon translated means "The
Will of lhe Poople," ami Konoplitsky
wus one of the compositors.   This
publication could [scarcely ho called
Nihilistic, although it wus domoorutio
in ils views.   Ils suppression was at
lust ordorod by the Government, and
oue day everyone oonnooted with it,
79 in all, were arrested and held for
trial.   Tiie editor, two reporters nnd
iho foreman were beheaded,    The
others were obliged to walk to Alou-
oow, a journey of ten day, where
some oi them wero sentenced to exile
for life, but the majority for fifteen
years.   After two years in Russian
prisons they wore taken by steamer
aud train to Tobolsk, aud Item there
a party of 000 exiles, men uud women, were marched overlaud across
tho wilds ol Sihtriu to Krasuuyarsk,
a place ubout li.O mi.es from the
mouth of the Y: uesei,    Here tiu-y
were condemned   to  work   in  tue
iniues.   Si.v years of untold suffering tollowod. Fourteen ot them were
shackled together, working fur b low
ground  in uiwost  lolai  uarkiiess.
They all slept in a room about (j fuel
Oj U, on uuiu plu.iko, wiih one 1'UlsOii
ii little for a pillow.   They got bul
one meal u day, and ti.a.. consisted of
black broad und water, hut on Sau-
dttjr. tne;. were, alio .v d a small portion of canned beet, ,' linost us many
Cossacks as prisoners stood guar 1 ut
the pit's month, absolutely barring
auy cliiu.ee of  escape.    Any complaints wero punished most rigorously, ami ou ouo occasion Kouu-
pliisky  was stripped  with tbe exception of a belt urouud his waist,
uud shaokled to a rook exposed to tho
cruel Siberian  climate  for twout.v-
four hours, uud all for staling to tho
overseer thut he Was uot comfortable.
At last the hour of oscupo ariived.
With a stone he managed to remove
tho uuklets,   He secured u passport
from a l'ullow p/isuuer, who had kept
it by lum ull theoo years, uud uftor
weeks ol suffering ho reached Vladivostok, whore tue passport Would
huvo to bo examined.   The refugee
almost oori'esponded with the description given, but Kouoplitsky had
cu his arm a tattoo mark of Christ
bearing tho cross, while ihe passport
particularly pointed out that there
Wore no tattoo murks upon thu p. r-
sou to whom the passport wus givon,
The cuse wus a desperate one, and
repaired a desperate remedy.   With
au ordinary clasp knife he sliced the
ph.co off his arm, aud the wound is
not yet honied.   At VladivoBtoek he
worked his passage on a Japanese
steamer to Nagasaki, a trip of seveu
days,   i'or Ion; iluys he rcmuiiied lu
Nagasaki, and  then  went to Yokohama, where ho remained 10 days,
the greater part of which was spent
iu hospital,    Upon the Kiuprcss of
Iudia leaving he hid himself iu ono
of the lifeboats and did nnt disoover
himself until they wero out of sight
of land.    The orow extended their
sympathy to him in every way, and
he was uot required to work his passage, us most BtowawuyB huvo to do.
They also supplied him with clothes
aud money aud forwarded him to
San I'liiuciseo, where ho bus friends.

THE BURNING QUESTION
Under this heading the Golden Era
a short time ago devoted nearly three
of its columns to the importance of
bestirring ourselves on behalf of one
of our unlive products���British Columbia lend. After alluding to the
vast deposits of this oro to be found
iu our mountains, nnd the erection of
smelters at Iievelstoke and Golden
for treating the same, the Era goes
on to speak of tht- difficulty of getting
a market, either homo or foreign,
the home market being praotioallj
nil, as the consumption of load in
Canada amounts to less thai, 5,000
tons a year, while the possible oul [..it
of this province alono would roach to
a hundred times that figure if tho
mining of lead ore were a profitable
undertaking. Referring to tbo United
States as .. market for B.U. lead, the
Era thinks it would bo of great benefit
to American smelters to use our ore
as flux with their richer ores. But
simultaneously with tbe Era's editorial
the following paragraph appeared in
the western PresB, from which it
would seem that the grounds upou
which the Era bad built its argument
Lave already been undermined, aud
that the use of lead as flux is a thing
of the past:
" The new smelting process at
Toston, Montana, has been watched
���with considerable interest by mining
men. It is thut uf smeltiug pyritic
ores, where iron pyrites are used as
II nx ins. cad of lead ores. Experiments buve demonstrated tbe success
of the new method, and it is claimed
that tbe expense of reducing ores
viill not exceed $2 per ton. It is
cluimed that only 100 lbs. of eoke i-
required to reduce one ton of ore ;
or, in other words, one ton of ooke
will smelt 20 tons of ore. It is also
claimed that the Dew pr cess will, iu
a prat measure, do away with cou
Centra ting, ores carrying a small percentage of molul being easily treated.
A new smelter was recently sturh tl
bt Deudwootl, o.Vd In minutes after
the blast wus turned' ou molten ore
rn
oiprooity lu  lend  with the United
Stii.es ; and thirdly . as au alternative
j io the latter, a bonus upon tho production of Canadian lca.l,"
| The first of these wo already enjoy,
| There is a duty of ��12 per ton on
imported loud, And we ilo not, thinit
it would be a very difficult tnsk to
persuade the Government to treble
this duly. But what then ? How
much benefit would aoorue to Uritish
Columbia mining ? Supposing our
mines supplied the whole of tho lend
used iu the Dominion, although wo
must net forget that there are other
jend producing districts in Canada,
The live thousand tons of home consumption would scarcely benefit our
particular provinoe more than the
emptying a pail of water into the
Columbia river just now would bring
its waters up lo their normal level.
Htill, it might be tr:w|���not i.Ua pail
of water, but the increased duly.
The second recourse, reciprocity in
lead and load ores, we shall nover
obtain from the Unit-d Slates, for the
Government at Washington has repeatedly stated that thoy will uot
listep to any reciprocity proposals concerning raw material alone. Such
proposals must include manufactured
goods of all kiuds, or else thoy will
not be discussed- not even looked at,
" Firstly, a protective import duty . the company are prepared  lu place
against English |ead ; ���wonnrlly, re | t|,*g nrc..<s.���.v ,,-uut  m.xt BUmmar,
and if the government succeeds in
getling reciprocity with the United
Stules in lead we can depend ou
realizing Hie long looked for boom
inside of two years; otherwise some
other market must be hnnd.
We cannot help thinking, Mr.
Editor, thut the Staii. us tbe representative of ihe miners of West
Kootenny, und more particularly
Ihis part of the district, should give
this important mutter moro attention,
for while it concerns the provinoe at
large, and for that mutter the whole
Dominion, it concerns thie immediate locality perhaps moro than any
other in the provinoe, becuusi* all
our ores curry a largo peroeutage of
leud. Not bo somo of the other camps,
as we understood there bus been a
considerable amount shipped iuto
the United States duty free from tho
laann, ti'ioienay.
Tlio trail down Pish Rivor to the
arm of Upper Arrow Lake is pro-
gressin��t well. It is now dowu
ab'Uit 1-1 uiilos, nud us the season is
well advanced ihe chances ure it
will not be completed tbis fall; but
no doubt work will be re-started
next spriug as early as the wtuthcr
permits. This trail opens out a
fine country right in tlie centre of the
mineral belt, and it will probably be
the means of numerous valuable
claims being discovered. Anyhow,
il is an important link in a through
trail from North to South Kootenay,
and when the connection between
tbe east and west end of Trout Luke
iB completed miners and others oan
briug in supplies with pack animals,
thus giving prospectors a chanco to
explore a large expanse of country
that is yet comparatively unknown.
It is conceded by even its opponents that the present is tbo most
liberal and progressive government
that ever guided the affairs of British
Columbia. This fact, united with the
able efforts of our worthy representative, Mr. Kellie, has done, and
is doing, a great deal more towards
opouing up our district than most of
ub have conceived. West Kootenny
is destined to rank second to none as
a wealth producing distriot inside ot
a very few years. It should be remembered that money expended upon trails and rouls now will not be
required for the samo purpose again;
uud, o::cb opened up, our dirftri 't
will support itself and turn a handsome revenue into the Treasury be-

As for the Era's third alternative, it
would simply be a ease of " robbing
Peter to pay Paul." Thoro aro other
markets than Euglaud and the United
States, which are botli lead producers.
Bnt whilo froight rates are so prohibitive es at present there will be
little use iu seoking ont new markets.
But as Rritish Columbia lead is
reposing in its virgin bed, aud litlle
(if auy) effort made to bring it before

from tho inland Sentinel, iu an article
ou this same subject, just fills the
bill:"

THE BURNING QUESTION
Under this heading the Golden Era
U short time ago devoted nearly three
of its columns to tbe importance of
.bestirring ourselves on behalf of one
of onr ualivo products���Uritish Columbia lead. After alluding to the
vast deposits of tin's ore to be found
in our mountains, an.4 the erection of
smelters at Revelstoke and Golden
for treating the same, the Era goes
on to speak of the difficulty of getting
a market, either home or foreign,
the homo market being practically
nil, as the consumption of le.ul in
Canada amounts to less thin, 5,000
tons u year, while the possible output
of this province alone would roach to
a hundred times that figure if the
mining of lead oro were a profitable
undertaking. Referring to tho United
States ns a market for B.C. load, the
Era thinks il would be of great benefit
to American smelters to use our ore
as flux with their richer ores, But
simultaneously with the Era's editorial
the followiug paragraph appeared in
the western Press, from which it
would seem that the grounds npou
which tho Era had built its argument
have already beon undermined, nud
that the use of lead as flux is a thing
of the past:
" The new smelting process at
ToBton, Montana, has been watched
with considerable interest by mining
men. It is that uf Biueltiug pyritic
Ores, where iron pyrites are used as
flux ins,cad of lend ores. Experiments huve dctnouslratei) the success
of the new method, and it is claimed
that the expense of reducing ores
will not exceed $2 per ton. It is
olaimid that mil-. 100 lbs. of coke i-
requited to reduce one ton of ore;
or, in other worls, one ton of ooke
will smelt 20 tons of ore. It is also
claimed that lhe new pr cess will, in
o(.'.-at measure, do away with cou
beu'lrutiug, ores carrying n smull percentage of mclul being easily treated.
A n'e'w smelter was recently starti d
at Di*udw��oii, and Iii minutes after
the blust was turned' ou molten ore
began flowing itt Ihu rate of 150 tons
Tho flrot of these wo already enjoy,
There is a duty of ��12 per ton on
imported lead. And wo do not thinK
it would be a very difficult task to
persuade tho Government to treble
this duty. But what then ? How
! much benefit would accrue to British
Columbia mining '? Supposing our
mines supplied the whole of Iho lead
used in the Dominion, although wo
must nyt forget that there are other
Jend producing districts in Canada.
The fivo tholisand tons of home eon-
sumption would scarcely benefit our
particular province moro than the
emptying a pail of water into the
Columbia river just now would bring
its waters up to their normal level.
Still, it might be triec*��� not tUc poll
of water, but the increased duty.
The second recourse, reciprocity in
lend and lead oros, we shall nover
obtain from the United States, for tho
Government at Washington has repeatedly stated that thoy will not
listen to auy reciprocity proposals concerning raw material alone. Such
proposals must include manufactured
goods of all kiuds, or elso they will
not be discussed- not even looked at,
As for tho Era's third alternative, it
would simply be a ease of " robbing
Peter to pay Paul." Thoro aro other
markets than Englaud and the United
States, which aro both lend producers.
But while freight rates are bo prohibitive es at present there will be
iittle use in seeking out now markets.
But as Rritish Columbia lead is
reposing in its virgin bed, and little
(if auy) effort made to bring it before
the world, we thiuk the following
from the Inland Sentinel, in an artiole
on this same subject, just fills the
bill:"
the company are prepared to place i
Ihis nec'-ssury pluut next summer,
and if the e-overnmont succeeds in
pteHinp- reciprocity with the United
Htu'es iu lead we can depend on
realizing Hie long looked for boom
inside of two years; otherwise some
other market must be hnud.
We cannot help thinking, Mr.
E.iitor, that the Stab, us tbe representative of ��� the miners of West
Kootenay, und more particularly
this part, of the district, should give
this important matter more attention,
for while it oonoerus the province at
large, and for that mutter the whole
Dominion, it concerns thia immediate locality perhaps moro than any
other in the province, because all
our ores carry a large percentage of
lead. Not so somo of the other camps,
as we understand there has been a
considerable amount shipped iuto
the United States duty free from tho
lonur ��"oienay.
Tho trail down Fish River to tbe
arm of Upper Arrow Lake is progressing well, It is uow dowu
about M inilus, aud as the seasou is
well advauced flie chuueos are it
will not be completed this fall; but
no doubt work will be re-started
next spriug as early as the weather
permits. This trail opens out a
tine country right in the centro of tho
mineral belt, and it will probably lie
the means of numerous valuable
claims being discovered. Anyhow,
il is an important link in a through
trail from North to South Kootenay,
and when tho connection between
tho east and west ene; of Trout Lake
is completed miners and others can
bring in supplies with pack animals,
thus giving prospectors a chance to
explore a large expanse of oountry
that is yet comparatively unknown.
It is conceded by even its opponents that tbe present is the most
liberal and progressive government
that ever guided the affairs of British
Columbia. This fact, uuited with the
able efforts of our worthy repre-
I sontative, Mr. Kellie, has done, and
is doing, a great deal more towards
opening up our district than most of

Pamell's Funeral,
Tbo body was taken from tho
death chamber at Brighton by
rail to Holyhead for conveyance
across the Irish Channel, Hundreds of Irishmen journeyed from
Loj.don and the lar-re Midland
cities to Holyhead, and tbo railway companies had to put ou
extra trains for thoir accommodation, At Holyhead the cortege
was mot by u contingent of Pur-
noil's personal friends who had
oosse.l over from Kingston, many
of whom burst into tears ut sight
oi tho casket. These, together
with tho iiuuiiiers who had como
from London and elsewhere, thou

the rites of the Protestant Ct.urch,
tho great majority of tho vast

When to Stop Advertising-.
A trade journal once requested
ton of its largest advertisers to
ewe their opinion as lo the best
time to stop advertising, writes
Thos. Smith, London, and tbo
following replies resulted:
When the'population ceases to
multiply and the generations
tbat crowd on after you, and
novor beard of, stop coming on.
When you havo convinced
everybody whose life will touch
yours Unit you havo hotter goods
and lower prices than they can
ever got any where clso.
When yell perceive it to be the
rulo that mon who nover adver-
liso are outstripping their neighbors In the same lino of business.
When mon stop making fortunes right in your sight solely
lb rough tbo discreot use of this
mighty agont.
When you can forget tho words
of tho shrewdost and most successful business men concerning
the main cause ot their prosperity.
When ovory man has become
throughly a creature of habit
that ho will certainly buy this
year whoro be bought last year.
When younger and froshor
houses in jour lino cease starting
up and using the newspaper in
Idling the people how much belter thoy can do for thorn than
you can.
When you would rather havo
your own way and fail, than take
advice and win.
When nobody else thinks it
pays to advei'tise.
Judicious aud porsistont advertising is tho keystone of success | then-fore, don't stop, or
othors will got ahoad of you.

A  New Kind   of Volcano.���
Eruption of Poiliug Water.
A queer story comes from the
oily ot Mexico, which troatsofa
new kind of  volcanic eruption.
Vicinte Loaiza, an agent of n sewing   machine   company,   whose
headquarters aro in Toluoa, came
to this city last Sunday and tello
a  most remarkable story,   lie
says he had ocoaBsion to visit u
town tweiily-tive leagues south of
Toluca, and last Mondoy a mountain or high bill about half way
between the towns of Teuancingo
and Teounloya, without warning,
exploded with a most terrific report and immediately an immonso
volumu of wator commenced to
flow from tho newly formod crater
and inundatod much of tho surrounding country.  Tbo Indians
fled to the hills, tho church bells
in tho surrounding villages wore
rum- violently und a genoral panic
eosuod,  Tho water soon found its
level and poured through a gorge
150 feet"deep and coutiuued solo
flow uulil Iho nexl day, wheu Mr.
Loaiza   left,    Tho   inhabitants
woro  so  frightened   that  they
would not approach tho stroam.
Loaiza did not tako tho tempora-
turo of iho water but ouppoees it
was hot ns ho saw vapor rising
from il on u warm day.    Tho
volumn of wulcr  wao DO groat
thai it carried away two high
bridges which crossed tho ravine
far  nbovo   water   murk.    The
orator formed by the explosion
was quito largo and rook and
earth  wore  scattered   far and
wido.   Loaiza is uot a sciontific
inan bul Is inlolligent and one ol
the most Buccossful mon of tho
company by which ho is rogardod
as a thoroughly roliablo man.
