year in the Slocan by Jack Cockle,

sold by him to W. D. Middaugh for

shipped.    This boulder is calculated
to contain 12.5 {Tons of ore, and at one
time when .it-was thought*, that wind
could move anything in the Slocan,
there was a scherne on foot to ship i t

XiUed For His Faith.
ZOJtUS? SHOULD HAVE
.News  has  been received by the
Presbyterian board ^of foreign missions from Oroomiah, Persia, that an
Amenian christian had been brutally
murdered by a native mob.    The
victims name is  Agah Jon, an Armenian  by u birth.   He was a prosperous merehant in the city of Oroomiah  and  a prominent member of
the Presbyterian church in that place
having been converted to Christianity
sometime ago by the missionaries of
the board at that station.   According
to the accounts, Agah John acted as
the agent of a Mohammedan woman j
who wished to purchase   a  piece  of
property;"' She called at;' the shop of
her agent on the day in question and
he reported that he had not as yet
been able to Make the purchase of
the  .lands  she   desired   to  obtain.
Much angered by the delay in carrying out her wishes the woman wreiit
to some of the most influential among
the natives and told them that Agah
Jon had grossly insulted her.    These
people  quickly  spread   the  rumor
abroad, and in a short time a howling
mob gathered in front of the unfortunate merchant's  store.   The crowd
broke down the doors and dragged
the poof man but into the street and
carried him to the mosque.   There
ft hey offered him his life and a large,.-,
sum of money if he would renounce
Christianity.    He refused t& comply
with their demands, and after^tortur-
ing him they dragged him to the top
of the mosque and,threw him bodily
to the ground.   AJsri^f lay prostrate
•and  scarcely   breathing,   a   heavy
stone was dropped upon him from a
great height, which crushed all the
life out of him and broke every bone
in his body.    Not satisfied with their
accomplishments, the mob savagely
attacked the corpse with knives and
daggers.   A wife and children survive him.

Chinese Exclusion.
The Chinese Exclusion Act, better,
known as the Geary Act, is about to
be superceded by the ■ McG-reary Act.
Mr.   McGeary  is   a   representative
from ^Kentucky, and he is chairman
of the committee, on Foreign   Relations.    The chief feature of the, new
. bill is that it extends   the time  for
registration six months after its pas-:
, sage.    The new law, it is contended,-
will give the Chinese in the United)
States time  to, register.    The  sup-;
porters of "theTre^ry law ask, very;
naturally, what guarantee is there
that this new law will be better observed by the Chinese than the. one
now on the statute book?   It may be
that the Chinese, depending on their
govermnent to protect them, will not
observe the new law any better than
thev did the old one.
it is pretty certain that the Geary
law, which is now generally discredited, throughout the union, lias a
history which has not yet been made
public. The United States government evidently must have been
deterred by something, besides the
fear of offending those who regard it
as iniguitious and unworthy a Christian nation, from, putting it in force
The course pursued by the Cleveland
administration with respect to the
Geary law is, to say the least, unusual, and, one which it would not
have ventured to. pursue if the law
had been a popular one. The secret
will no doubt, leak out before long.
It is not known- with anv decree of
certainty what is the precise attitude
which the government of China has
assumed with respect to tlie Geary
law.—Colonist.

; At Victoria a verdict of manslaughter was brought* in in the case ot
Wilson, charged with the murder of
his shipmate Jones, on the ship Rath-

Executive commissioner of the
World's Fair C. V. Calhoun has telegraphed as follows all over the continent: ' 'Warn farmers whe have
returned from the fair with samples
of grain for seed to burn them immediately. A- dangerous pest permeates the whole ox!i ibit in the Department of Agriculture." If any
British Columbians have samples of
the above they will be doing the
community a service by obeying the
injunction.
Theodore Bezant, a Spokane bartender, while under the influence of
liquor, took a carriage ride with his
wife last week. On reaching the
middle of the Monro street bridge he
stop_ >ed and tried to coax his wife to
jump over the railing into the falls.
She said she was not fool enough for
that and wasn't afraid of him. Airs.
Bezant was having the best of the
argument when Officer Shannon and
Herdon arrived and arrested her
husband.    He paid $10.00 and costs.

Mr. Tosher  on th© Slocan Output.
Mr. Fisher of the Freddie Lee is on
his way to Tacoma to manange a
gold property for a Tacoma syndicate. He will not be back it West
Kootenay till next summer at least.
The Freddie Lee has been leased to
the well known Coeur d'Aiene miner
John Fitzwilliara, and the company
for the time has ceased to operate' it,
"When X get to Tacoma," said Mr.
Fisher, ' T wil! ■ have something to
say to the papers about this country
that will attract the interest of min
ing men. The fault with a majority
of the people who write lip a mining
country is that they know nothing
about mining, and what they have
to say disgusts instead of attract mining men. 'Here is another country,'
they say, 'boomers are trying , to
engineer a rush into.' I have had
occasion lately," continued Mr. Fisher
'.'■'to make a practical estimate for a
practical man of the number of men
actually at work in the Slocan, and
of the probable outputs of the mines
with their present openings and without any further development work
being done. I found, as nearly as I
could estimate it, that there were
140 men at work, and that the put-
put of the mines wouln not be less
than 900 tons a month from now till
the 7rst of July next. That is at the
present price of silver. Of course if
silver improves or if improvements in
transportation become available the
output will be very much larger. -'-Ncy-'
I cannot say anything about the individual mines on which my calcu-
lations are based, as I do not care to
talk about other people's property in
that way. "—-Tribune.
The Nakusp & Slocan Railway will
bring this ore to Nakusp.
