New York, Sept. 11.—A special
cable from London today to the
New York Herald, says:
Capt. Voss, of the three Master
Tillikum, two and a half tons,
which anchored in Margate Harbor this week, is perhaps the only
Cockle Shell navigator who has
made money at the business. His
crew consists of an expert advance
agent who looks more at home in a
top hat and a Prince Albert coat
than in oil skins.
The Tillikum travelled forty-one
thousand miles, starting from Vancouver, B. 0., three years ago and
finishing in a tank of the London
Hippodrome next week. It is
nothing but an Indian dug-out
canoe, forty three years old, thirty
feet long, two feet six inches in
depth of hold, with a tiny cabin
protruding fourteen inches above
her deck. Instead of a bowsprit,
she has a carved bow like a viking
ship and her three masts look like
small bean poles. It spreads thirty
eight yards of canvas. The old
salts of the Margate  shake their

The contract will soon be let and
work commence upon the erection
of the buildings for the zinc plant
at Roseberry. The buildings will
)e four in number and it will take
over 350,000 feet of lumber to build
them. Fifty men will be employed
for several months in the construction. The buildings will have a
frontage of over C00 feet. The
buildings will be finished in January
and the machinery installed in
February. The^machineryJiB] now

P.R. west-bound trans-continental
express, known as No. 1, was held
up by three masked men last night
a few miles west of Mission Junction.^ Train was late and was travelling at rapid speed to make up
time when engineer Scott was surprised by a masked man who pointing a gun at him commanded him
to stop the train. Tbe engineer at
the same time noticed two other
armed men climbing into the cab
from the tender. Seeing resistance
useless, hejcomplied with tho command and stopped the train. While
oue man remained on the locomotive to guard the engineer, the
other two took the fireman and
made him cut off the mail and express car from other part of train.

he would be shot. He at once saw
that the train was held up and the
brakey was told to warn passengers
to hide their valuables, while tho
other brakeman was sent back to
Mission Junction to notify tbe operator there to send word to Vancouver for assistance. As soon as
the train had been uncoupled tbe
engineer was ordered to draw the
express car ahead a short distance.
Then he and the fireman were
forced to get out of the engine aud
accompany tho robbers to express
car under threat of blowing the car
up with dynamite when expressman
Mitchell opened the door and was
promptly disarmed. From the ex
press car the robbers secured 86000
in gold dust and $1000 in cash.
They next visited tlie mail car and
secured registered mail bags, contents of which are at present unknown. Having secured the booty
the men retired into bush and
struck off in the direction of Fraaer
river, their intention evidently being to cross it and make for the
American side.
After tho robbers' departure the
engineer ran back to the main por

and proceeded to Vancouver.

Cliefoo, Sept. 11.—The latest
advices from Port Arthur says that
the Russians on September 4,
shelled the Japanese covered
trenches in front of Pali Chuang
and destroyed them. Everything
was quiet along the line during
night of September 4, but in the
morning it was seen that the
Japanese outposts had crept closer
into the Russian lines. An incident of recent bombarding of Port
Arthur was the striking of the roof
off a hospital by a Japanese shell.
The Japanese fire was drawn to
the hospital by the placing near it
by the Russians of beacon signals.
One small Russian scouting party
succeeded in creeping close to the
Japanese entrenchments on Comer
mountain but the barking of
dogs gave the alarm and prevented a further advance. Japanese
reserves poured into the entrenchments and opened fire on the Russians but a shell from a Russian
battery lauded in the trench and
killed many of the Japanese
soldiers and the remainder retired.

It is now said that the Japs are
not Asiatics but Jews. It is supposed that they are descendenta of
the Lost Tribes of Israel who got
away from Palestine iu the early
days and failed to return. Judging from the way that they havo
put the Russians on the pike a suspicion has arisen that a few Irishmen have drifted into their ranks.
If the suspicion is true tho soldiers
of the Czar might as well go home
aud save further expense.
I.v Port Arthur Stoessel in the
egotism born of his religion telegraphs the Czar that God is helping
him repel the Japs. Judging from

he patronized a street bootblacking

directed the bootblack, in his best

Tho bootblack stared at the
senator for a moment in apparent
perplexity, then answered   briefly:
"Mo no speak English."
A newsboy standing on the corner had witnessed the incideut
with interest.
"He ain't no Frenchman," he
observed, confidentially, as the
senator got down tho stand, "he's
a Dago.   Talk Italian."

■    •■■   ■
Whilst I was hung up in Japan it
struck me that there were places on the
coast that mijjht in the near future play
an important part in the as yot unwritten history of the far east.   Giving: out
that I hail abandoned all hope of doinjsr
any work as a war correspondent, I
moved   around,  ostensibly  fratherinj?
material for n lecturing tour and for the
making of a book    One day I was dining with a Japanese noble of high de
gree, who took me over his works and
showed me how tho Jape make swords,
with tools as primitive as those used five
hundred years ago.   Tho next 1 was
amongst the coolies in the rice fields,
with my Chinese interpreter, picking
up the social and industrial life of the
country.   Later still I was looking at
the hot springs neRr Myineshota, and a
few days afterwards I sat at the foot of
the sacred mountain, Fujiyama.   Then
I [drifted towards the coast and saw
many    things    which    would    have
been forbidden to the war corresponr
dent    Everywhere I saw soldiers, drilling, drilling, drilling, for the nation is
being turned into soldiers; the prnning
hook is being beaten into the sword, the
ploughshare into the lance and the next
generation of Japanese will  feel the
strain as all nations who plunge Into war
on a great scalo feel it sooner or later.
The thing that_ struck me most forcibly
in my wanderings was the utter care
leanness'with which the coolie who is
called to the colors leaves  wife  and
child.   A lot of false sentiment has, in
rhy opinion, deluged the world's press
in regard to the Japs, and nowhere iB
this more apparent than in the matter
of the soldier going to war and his wife
Love, as we of tho western world understand it, does not exist in Japan.   A

his one skinny donkey with regret, because it represents so many yens to him,

his daughters he cares no moie about
than for the stubble in the field!   This

rare variety of butterfly right up
against one of the automatic disappearing guns a uay or two later and the
next day he was shipped off to Shanghai. 'You can't take too much interest
even in butterflies in Uji. The Japs
think an awful lot of those disappearing
guns, of which they have quite a number. There is some secret attached to
themitliat I could not loam; it was sold
to them by a Scotch engineer. I may
be wrong in my estimate of human nature, but I fancy that my American
friend was more interested iu the secret
of that gun that in the capture of that

Mr;Johri A Church, one of the first
mining engineers ever graduated from
an American institution, has written an
extremely interesting article for the
Mining Magazine, of New York, entitled "Mining Past and Future." Alluding to the history of mining in
America, Mr. Church says:
It is only a quarter of a century since
the yield of British copper ores was
about 9 per cent, aud of foreign ores
smelted in'British works about 15 per
cent. America was then a large contributor to the Welsh furnaces; and
long before our continent was spanned
by railroads, ores, chiefly of copper
and silver, were gathered in desert
regions, and after a toilsome wagon
haul wore taken by the most devious
waterways, or by a long railroad journey, to a shipping port, and landed in
Cornwall, after a trip that in some cases
covered from six to nine months.
Thie, was the history of even such a
remarkable mine as the Anaconda, and
many of ub can remember the exhibition of Industrial courage with which
the owners of the erection of their own
smelters under conditions of fuel sup
ply and freight that were forbidding.
men fought or got drunk. In the age,
following this savage age, woman did
not work outside the house. Man made
the living. ' In this age, tho woman
wants to bo a wage earner. She wants
to make money. She has done well as a
short hand stenogapher, earning some
money, and creating the usual amount
of jealousy between the married
heads of divers firms. She has done
some right good work as a doctor, a
nurse and a lawyer—but in this field,
she has not done much because she is
too apt to tell the truth. ISuw, she
wants to enter the field as a mail carrier, aud the government says she must
wear pants, We object. Some how we
have gtown used to skirls The bes-t
thing about a woman is hor lap. When
your old heart is full of grief land you
want to cry a little you lay your head
on a woman's lap. Palsed bo the rule
that would destroy that lap by btfur
cation. Where would you put your
scissors or spool of thread. A woman's lap is a family home.
It must not be broken in two.
You see your sweetheart coming up
the street, now, and she looks like an
animated hour glass, with a place
around the waist where your arm can
rest. That is tho idea of a woman, and

don't want woman to change from

This is also the history of Butte from
tho earliest days when the furnaces
turned out a product that was hauled
by wagon to Ogden. It is the history
of the Copper Queen, situated fitty miles
from a railroad, aud two thousand
miles from a market
The beginnings of the great district
at Clifton and Morecci, Arizona, were
mado when copper was hauled 600 miles
in wagons, and when nearly a year
was needed to get a four-ton locomotive
on the ground, The freight alone on
coke delivered at Globo was $42 a ton.
.... Frequently tho development
of the mines has led to the construe*

Mr. Church refers in a graphic manner to the relation existing between recent scientific discoveries nnd the Industry of mining:

"Samuel Brown of Forest hae been
appointed inspector to supervise  the
payment of bounties ou crude petroleum
produced   from Canadian wells.     He
will be instructed in his duties by Mr.
Parmaleejr, of the Trade and Commerce Department, who will shortly go
up to Petrolea for that purpose.    The
regulations which are to govern the
payment of bounties have been framed
and are>now being printed preparatory
to distribution.   All producers of crude
petroleum from Canadian wells are re
quired to notify tho minister of Trade
and Commerce of their) intention to
claim the bounty of 11-2 cents per gallon.   They must declare whore their
wells are Bituated and  the estimated
number, the monthly production, the
places and uancs of the purchasers of
the crude product and all particulars as
to ownership, whether it be a co-part
nership or an incorporated company.
The books of tho claimant and of the
purchasers of tho product aro to be
open to inspection by the supervising
office.   Claims for bounty aro to be
substantiated by certificate of the receiving stations   and respective  purchasers, as well as of the supervising
officers.   Samples must be taken at the
time of delivery of  crude oil sold by
claimants and a record of the'same
kept by the receivers or buyers. Claims
for bounty may be made monthly when
amounting to $25 or more per month
and quarterly when for a Iobs sum."
At a recent auction of unclaimed baggage by the Santa Fe in Los Angeles an
old trunk, tied up with rope, was sold
for $6.25. When the purchaser opened
up his property he found a miscellaneous
assortment of "plunder" which had evi
dently belonged to some old time miner.
Besides some much worn working
clothes, there were specimens of ore,
blasting caps, a six-shooter, a box of
cartridges, a couple of razors, and two
steer horns. The horns were tightly
stuffed with rags and, when uncorked,
disclosed 5281 in currency and $60 in

"indications are not lacking: "that a
great wave of progress and industrial
activity is rolling over the interior of
the province. In the Similkameen and
Nicola districts many inquiries are being
made for coal and other mineral properties with the addendum: "when do you
expect the railway people to begin
building?" Extensive mining and milling operations and the proposed smelter
at Hedley add to the probability that
railway construction on the coast to
Kootenay route will isoon begin. The
great strides made in the Boundary in
mining and smelting equipment places
cheap smelting. Then east and west
Kootenay have never known such a
period of steady progress in coal and
metalliferous mining, in lumbering and
railroad construction. There need not
be an idle man in the whole of Yale and
the Kootenays at $2.50 per day for laborers. In the Similkameen Iproapects
were uever more encouraging and with
the coming o( the railway ten thousand
miners aud laborers will be required for
coal and metallic mining, for lumbering
and farming. All that is lacking now
is transportation. The Similkameen
and Nicola districts cannot advance further without it.
