Prince Herbert Bismark died this
morning at 10:15 o'clock. The
end was painless.
Since he ceased to be foreign
minister on the retirement of his
father in 1890, Prince Herbert Bismark had taken part in public
affairs only as a member of the
Reichstag. His attitude has been
that of a man not appreciated by
his sovereign and who was waiting
in the back ground for an opportunity to resume his career.
His delivery as a parliamentary
speaker improved year by year.
He always declined to join any
political group, steadfastly calling
himself an independent.
Prince Bismark's father trained
him for his successor as Chancellor
of the German Empire and advanc

M. Kiddie who was also struck by
the tender of the engine and is at

Both men had heard the train
coming but supposing it to be on a
"Y" failed to get out of the way
in time. Edmunds was a member of the Prince of Wales Lodge
Number 517, F. and A. M. An

London, Sept. 19. -The "Daily
Telegraphs" Che Foo correspondent says:
"Two Germans aud a Cossack
who have arrived here from Port
Arthur asserts that Ceneral Kuropatkin told General Stoessel that
he must hold out until January
and they say that the garrison has
amunition and food for six months.
This probably is greatly exaggerated.
"Other refugees say that no
fresh meat is left at Port Arthur
and that the garrison there is reduced to 8,000.
"The destruction of  the coast
ing a mine is confirmed."
of truce are ignored, numbers of
dead Japanese who have been lying
on the slopes of the hills of the
northeast of the defences for weeks
past are still unbwried and the
stench in Port Arthur from decomposing bodies is almost unendurable.
There has been no fighting Bince
Sept. 1, with the exception of artillery and qutposfc exchanges. The
Japanese shells have done great
damage to the hospital and other
buildings in Port Arthur but the
loss of life from these bombardments has been very slight.
Madame Stoessel is at the head
of the Red-Cross work. She is in
constant attendance at the hospitals. The soldiers consider her
the guardian angel.
The Newspaper Novikrai has

St. Petersburg continues without
official confirmation of the report
that the Japanese are advancing
north of Mukden, and the statement is therefore not credited at
tbe Russian capital. General
Sakharoff reports that there has
been no fighting in locality of Mukden Friday or Saturday, but notes
the arrival of reinforcements for
the Japanese along the whole line.
The interval of quiet has afforded
General Kuropatkin opportunity
to strengthen his defences, and he
haB received large reinforcement-
since his retreat to Mukden. There
are indications of a revival of the
struggle for the powtmion of Port
Mukden, Sept. 18.—The armies
having recovered from the effect* of
the fighting before Liao Yang an
early development in tbe situation
may lie expected. A mysterious
move eastward ia on foot on the

the leading Chinese who bave aided
the Russian* are leaving Mukden.

London, Sept. 19.— It is asserted
in a despatch from Tokio to the
Express that the Japanese are
vigorously shelling the Russian
position at Mukden, preparatory
to a general advance and endeavoring by a wide movement to cut off
Japanese armies, the despatch
adds, are disposing in the same relative positions as in the fighting
at Lia Yang.
Paris, Sept. 19.—The Journal

a year by being an adept in pomp,
ceremony and the power of the human voice. His common-sense utterances are paraded in big type by
the servile press in order to catch
the pennies from those who stand
in awe of anything dressed in robes
and called a bishop. J. Pierpont
Morgan accompanied the bishop,
but w'aB scarcely noticed, so intensely is Toronto stuck on any great
figure in tho religious world. Morgan is a man who has made millions, not by toiling with his hands,
but through scheming with his
brains to gain possession of more
wealth than he could use in a million years. Through stock deals
that many times were nothing more
than legalized robbery ho crushed
hia opponents, broke many n heart,
and is now probably travelling with
a bishop in order to stick balm on
* wounded conscience. Wealth
covers a multitude of sins, and we
are certain that both Morgan and
the bishop consider themselves real
good men, one with hia millions,
the other with his S75,000 a year,
whilo out in many a cold street tonight a shivering child is longing
for a crust, or the soft side of any
kind of 1ml. If Christ waa ou earth
would lie be the aame as the great
men of finance and theology, or
would ho preach in the street ami

Without what is called conscience
a man is just the same as any other
animal. With it properly developed and in active use a man becomes
a gentleman, and does not need any

X Eleventh Year
FoTTy oF lirip^HaTfsfin
From tho day when tho Slavs and
kindred tribes accepted as their Czar,
the brigand prince of the Varangians
(a wandering1 horde of land pirates) to
this eventful hour, Russia has persjs
tently pursued the policy of Imperial
What has it done for her!' After all
these years of seeming success it has
brought tho imperial government to the
verge of destruction.
There has not been one day in all
those centuries that Russia'..hand, wero
stained with innocent blood. Practicing oppression abroad, she established
and maintained a despotism at home as
dovilished and damnable as ever cursed
a race, or nation.
By fire and sword she has won to her
standard the broadest expanse of territory ever brought under tlie dominion
of a Hag, Tho "glory" of expansion is
here, The governmental policy of
of Russia is black with infamy, red
with cruelty, and saturated with blood.
Her throne rests not upon justice but
brute force. The Czar governs not by
law, but by prison bar and bayonet.
The ruling classes,'the lirienl des
cendants ot the Varangian pirate
princes are well pleased with themselves aud their Czar. But the people
—their victims—hate and abhor, while
they wait, work and pray for the hour
when destiny shall bid tlietn strike tho
shackles from bowed necks and bleeding
limbs, and become free men. Standing
erect in God's sunlight, armed with
righteous miglit they will smash to
smithereens Russia's reeking throne and
mangle to junk both scepter and crown.
That fateful hour will come at no
distant day. Who knows but what,
driven from America by the sword of
imperialism, Freedom may find a refuge in Russia? Surely she must visit
all lands ere she is banished from the
world. As yet her smiles have never
beamed on the land of the Czars. Possibly some country where she has
hitherto been unknown may receive
and make her queen for over.
belief that they had established her
throne m-Amcrica. They little dream
ed that she would be driven into exile,
sia's military reputation is lost forever.
Her valting pride has been humbled in
the dust, and Japan has won undying
glory. Her Deweysand Schleys have
taken their places in the world's annals;.
Her Hobsons are too numerous ,to
mention, while her Grants, Logans and
Lees, have each carved for himself a
niche in war's temple of eternal frame.
Japan is fighting not for territoay, but
for a principal. She is trying to put a
stop to Russia's •'criminal aggression."
Here is where she gats my sympathy.
Japan deserves the applause of all
lovers of liberty.
Like the British lion the Russian
bear, hitherto in his career of Imperial
Expansion haB had to deal only with
weak people, poorly armed. In most
cases tbey wero naked savages, who
opposed their spears, to mausers, and
gat'ing guns,
England went up against the "real
thing*'in South Africa, and it took her
nearly three years to whip a handful
of farmers. It was necessary then to
pit five of her cheap heroes against one
Boer, to win. The Boer war brought
England to the very verge of financial
ruin, aud saddled her people with
eternal debt. *
Russia can never whip the Japs.
Trouble is brewing at home. Hell is
liable to break loose any instant in the
very shadow of the Imperial palace.
The Jap soldier is a freeman. The
Russian soldier is a serf. This tells the
tale. The Jap has something for which
to fight The Russian private is asked
to fight for his oppressors.
Natural sympathy for the white race
has robbed the Japanese of much glory
clue them for the way they havo conducted themselves irs the war with Russia. Had any white nation, who.«-e
whole country comprised less territory
than the. State of California, accomplished with the Japs have, the civilized
world would be filled with their praises.
War brutalizes people, but it is said the
Japsare the most humane soldiers in
tho world. Kvon when the great Russian admiral was slain at Port Arthur,
the Japs at home held public meetings
and formed funeral processions throughout the land in honor of their dead
enemy. Was the like ever heard of
before? They practice Christian virtues without professing them. The
Russians profess Christain virtues, but
don't practice them. Russia is to receive at the hands of Japan, the red reward of criminal aggression, and oppression. Her peasantry, her Polish
and Finnish subjects glory in her defeat and humiliation. Let us hope that
all nations may learn from her expert
ence that Imperial Expansion does uot
pay.—Windlo's Gatling gun.

be transformed into a buzzard and feast

Lincoln's words are true: "They
who deny freedom to others, deserve it
not for themselves and under a just God
cannot long retain it.'' Lincoln might
have added: "And when once lost, it
can never ho recovered,'^ When exiled
by any people, freedom never returns
to "cast her pearls before swine,'' For
this reason, if for no other, American
patriots should be careful lest they bo
deceived hy the glamor of imperial expansion, and endorse a policy which
denies to Filipinos the rights they claim
(or themselves.

Tho Nugget, Mr. J. A. Magee, manager
of the Spyglass company, operating on
Poplar creek, has furnished the following information in regard to development done, and other matters in connection therewith. Tunneling on the
Spyglass has cost slightly over $12 a
foot. The payroll at the mine last
month was $1,200. To those who are
familiar with tho mine and the work
done Mr Magee's report will, perhaps,
appear rather under than over tlie.
rn¥rkT-We*liope in future issues to
give similar reports on tho Lucky
Jack. Swede, Marquis and Gilbert,
Mother Lode, Copper King, Broken
Hill, Morning, Calumet and Hecla,
and other properties, thus showing that
although tho camp is but fifteen months
old, a largo amount of development has
been done with very satisfactory ro-
suits. Following are the facts in reference to the Spyglass company's
properties, and facts, only:
"As requested by you, 1 herewith
hand you a report of what has been dono
on the Spyglass company's properties—
tho Spyglass, Globe and Hawk mineral
claims, since the first of June of the
present year, on which date wo commenced work with a few uir-it. excavating a place for tents and cook camp,
near tho site of our present tunnels,
as at the timo we took possession of the
properties tho only possible place to
pitch h tent was about 1,500 feet down
the mountain, in the valley of 1'oplar
cieek Tho slope of the mountain is
about 4ft degree*, and in order to get
from the camp In the valley to when;
we wished to commence work it woe
necessary to make switch-backs (n
zig-zag trail), which made tho distance
about double, ami caused a loss of about
HO minutes time on each shift,
in two payments—December and February, besides some stock. Soon after
securing the extension, August llth,
we encountered the native silver, and
after driving in that until near the end
of the month, and making sure of its
continuity, Mr. McLeod and myself
went to Trout Lake to see Mr. Win-
quist, and after a visit to the mine and
considerable dickering we succeed in
the un-
securing a libera! discount on
making a considerable saving to the
"Since purchasing tho property we
have turned our attention to building
camps, so as to have tlie men well
housed before the fall rains set in, the
only work iu the mine being two shifts
driving an upraise to connect with No.
I tunnel, which w'jll give better air in
No. 2, Considerable ore will be taken
out of this upraise and that, with the
ore taken out of the tunnels, will be
shipped as soon as wo can get it down
for smelter test, The first pack train
with this ore will arrive in Poplar Friday afternoon.
"In conclusion, I might say, the Spyglass Company have built oi.o mile of
new trail this month, from the mine
down the mountain, connecting with
the old trail in the valley. This gives
us a fairly good grade and should we
secure the government aid we hope for
to make a wagon road, we will endeavor to continue shipping.'

In Poplar and other parts of the
country complaints are* often heard
about the knockers in Nelson. In
support of it we print the following
letter: "Pleased to know that you
have a chance to place my property,
but I an. doubtful about your being
able to get your man through Nelson. Nelson is a bad spot, for several men I got that far were persuaded by men in your city to do
nothing. Some of the business men
in Nelson were so much afraid of
anything starting up in the country that they succeeded in stopping
them from investing, or drove tliem
out of the country. If your prospective buyer calls at Nelson stay
with him until you get him saftily
out of the city. Otherwise the
knockers will spoil the deal." This
certainly is a nice reputation for a
city with the men who are doing all
they can to bring capital into the
country. The knockers hurt Nelson
more than any other section, for
this city draws its business from
the territory surrounding it for two
hundred miles, and everything possible must be done to develop the
resources of the country if we wish
for a continuance of prosperity.
