Ninth Year
TO BE THE CHOICE
To Represent England at the
Peace Conference-
HIS WORK APPRECIATED
Tlie Appointment Will bo a Signal Recognition 01 His Distinguish* t  Por-
vicen to His Conn try.
Washington, March 10.���Tlie name
of Sir Julian Pauncefoto the British
Ambassador, has beau under consider-
hlinu (or some time as ono of tbo British delegates to the disarmament eon-
grass called at tlm instance of tlm Czar,
unit there is littlu doubt that lie will
be chosen for this important duty. As
yet, however, there 1ms boon no official
announcement and abont the only
thing definitely and officially known
here is thnt the Foreign Otllce hns
not made a final selection, but is considering the name of Sir Julian nlong
willi others. It is understood that tlie
Ambassador has been consulted unofficially on the subject with n view lo
learning whether the assignment
would be agreeable. Tho appointment,
if mndu, would bo n signal recognition
of the high esteem in which he is
bold in high olllcial circles at homo.
It* is said in influential diplomatic
quarters that the suggestion of Sir
Julian's name for thn disarmament or
peace congress comes about lnrgely
through the part lie took in negotiating the Anglo-American pence treaty,
also known ns the Olney-Pnmioofota
traaty. Aside from this prospective
appointment the Br';:���'��. Gor-Jhtiruont
recently has shown in another way
its favor toward the Ambassador ly
extending his term of active diplomatic servico for one year from May I,
next, during which period he will remain as Ambassador to the Unitod
Statos. This is a second extension,
tho first one occurring last fall and
continuing for SIX months up to May 1
next. By tins second extension there
i* nsiurnnce that if Sir Julian is given
the special missionto the disarmament
congress, it will not terminate his
service hero. Owing to tho war last
summer, the Ambassador did not take
his usual two months leave for n trip
abroad, no that he is likely to take a
four months leave this yenr, duri lg
which he would be able to take part
in the congiess if his appointment is
finally determined upou. Sir Julian
eallod at tho Stato Department   today.

eleclricul induction,similar to X Rays.
He says be can despatch the torpedo at
the rale of aa knots nu hour and control for a distance of six miles, possi-
b'y more, ns well ns bring it back. His

the movements of a steamer equally
well nnd render wires for telephones
superfluous, Orling, who is a native
of Btookhol, has travelled and studied
in America.

blow was a heavy one, but the father
bore up bravely.
"How long was she ill?" ho said,
Ho was then told as much as tho attendants thought wise. Tears stood
ill tbo poet's eyes and he murmured
half to himself, half aloud: "Poor little Joe."
It was this ho always called the little
one. The doctor thought it best to tell
him the worst ns tho worry nnd distrust be seems to have in all replies
given to his queries about the little
one would huvo possibly boon morn

MORE LAND GRABBING ALASKAN MINERS IN IT
Large Russian Foroo About to Seize Sir-
I-Kel, North of the Mvisttigh

Loudon,March 10,���A despatch from

river, with the intention of seizing
Sir-I-Kel, a hundred mile strotch of
territory north of the Mnstagh mountains which was left undefined by the
Pamir boundary commission   in   1896.
Its seizure by Russia would cause
complication with Great Britain. The
Pamirs, groat and little, are an extensive table land of Central Asia called by the natives tho "Roof of the
Word.'' They are bounded on the
south by tho Hindoo-Koosh mountains
nnd the plateau forms the coutral node,
whence radiate tho principal mountain
ranges of Asia. The tract is mainly
under Russian authority, but Sir I-
Kel, in whioh is Lako Sir-I-Kel. the
headwaters of tho Oxus river, has remained disputed ground sinco 181)5.

some time between tho Irish factional
loaders, Timothy Hoaloy and John
Redmond, through their respective
organs, the Daily Nation and tho Daily
Interview, is likely to kill their Irish
United Movement which is making
favorable progress of late. Healey
charges that Redmond's paper is under Tory control and supported by
British gold. Redmond threatens to
sue Healey for libel and get an injunction against his paper.
MINING ACCIDENT.

Creede, Colo., March 10.���An explosion of several hundrod pounds of
powder oocurred today in tunnel No.
3 of tho Commodore mine, creating

THE "ADS"   DID NOT GO.
Loudon, March 10.���Some peculiar
testimony wns given in tbo Westminster Court today in the trial against J.
B. Lane to recover tha amount of a
dressmaker's bill, The defendant testified that his wife had arranged for
the payment of tbo bill by means of
notices in American newspapers in
which bo and she wero correspondents.
In reply to a question by the

in pursuance of this arrangement were
published in the Now York Mail end
Express, Cleveland World and Chicago
Times Herald. He testified that he

WILL PAY UP.
Colon, Colombia. March 10.���The
Panama Star and Herald, today publishes a dispatch saying news has been
recoived to the effect that the report
that a definite settlement has been ar
rivod at between Colombia nnd the representatives of tbo Cerrutti claim is

Buffalo, N. Y., March 10.���An evening paper publishes the following rto-
spatoh from Washington today I There
is great danger of an armed collision
between the Canadian and American
miners in the Porcupine River region
on the bouudary between Alaska and
Biitish territory. This is a purt of the
Alaskan boundary that is uot iu any
diplomatic dispute. It is defined
clearly by the treaty and follows the
141st meridian of west longitude. The
location of the meridian and of the
boundary is merely a matter of survey-
in-,'. The situation is so serious, thnt
upou information contained in a letter
from Governor Brady of Alaska to tho
Seoretary of tho Interior; the Secre-
tnry of State hns called tho ntteution
of the British Government to the action of the Canadians and has asked to
havo thom recalled to thoir own territory. It is not believed that the British Uovernmont has in nny way supported the trespassers, but it has been
suggested that the Canadian Government, which has shown a disposition
to disregard the rights of the United
States, evon to tho extent of clashing
with the home Government m London, has probably connived at the notion of tbe Dominion miners. It. has,
officials think, perhaps, secretly encouraged tho Canadian miners, with
the view of claiming rights in tho Porcupine region, which would only be
conceded in roturu for a port and the
cession of territory iu the southern part
of Alaska, so ns to give nu entrance to
the Klondike from the Pacific through
British territory. It is believed here
that Great Britain will recall the Cun-
adiaus aud it is hoped that this will
be done before nny trouble occurs.
A BULLY   KILLED.
Further Troublo With Colored Troops
in the Sonth.
Knnsas City, Mo., March 10.���The
23rd Kansas volunteers colored, en
route to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas,
from Santiago, passed through Kansas
City today with one member of tbe
regiment a prisoner. When a short
distance out from St. Louis, a soldier
named Williams, of Kansas Oity, was
stabbed to death by a comrade named
Geoorgo Ray, Williams, who was
known ns the "Bully of the regiment"
bad stirred up considerable trouble
finally assaulting Ray, who drew a
knife and struck him in the breast,
killing him instantly. Ray was placed
under arrest.
MUCH TOO SLOW.
American Troops   Should   Not  Spend
Timo Sight Seeing.
London, March 10.���The Daily
News, commenting on the landing of
the American troops at La Valetta
yesterday, says that apart from the
sight seeing and the fraternization
with the British troops, the moral
for the United States is that tbey had
better seo about tho Nicaragua oaual
immediately. These mon, it adds, are
simply crawling around the world
to reach a place they ought to be able
to get to liy a straight run ncross tho
Pacific. It is a good way to loam
geography) but is not exactly tho way
to reinforce garrisons in n crisis in
their struggle wilh n determined en-
eniv.
ROMANCER, MINER. PROMOTER.
Somo   Foatures    of     the     Career  of
Ono of Mark Twain's Originals.
At a lending hotel in New York
James F. Wardner, the original of
Mark Twain's Col. Sellers, was the
center of interest Saturday night, says
tho Utica Globo. Wardner is a character. His equal never existed. He
is a man such as we frequently read
about in good stories. His career
would make an interesting book. He
us made and lost several several for-
tnnos and is now ngain on tho road to
wealth. Ho doesn't think anything of
losing a fortuno iu a night and it
doesn't swell his bead the least bit to
come into a fortuno in a night. He
first gained notoriety as a romancer
and promoter. At one time whon he
was short of money he '' raised the
wind" by giving out that he knew of
and   was interested in   a  company ou
Black Cat. Island in Puget Sound, that
wns raising black cats nnd selling
the furs nnd making big money. He
did very well with this fake till a San
Francisco paper sent its reporters there
and spoiled tha game. This is a
sample of tho business in which ho is
considered an expert.
He has operated very successfully in
British Columbia, making vast sums
ont of mining proporties there. He
established towns nnd with the towns
came banks, insurance, lumber and
mining eonipanios, in nil of which
Wardner wiib president or vice-president He often went to a place wilh
a shoe string uud came bade with a
bank roll.
One of the little towns of which lie
was tbe father was Kaslo, in British
Columbia. Hero Wardner supported
a ohuroh, paying the pastor's salary
and all the other expenses. Then be
lost all bis money in a mine in Washington nnd immediately advised tbo
clergyman to go to a penitentiary in
tbe west where Wardner had secured
him a position ns chaplain. Tho
clergyman declined to go. But Ward-
tier insisted aud, to make sure that
the pastor would go, he wrote tho following letter to the congregation over
the clergyman's name :
"Brothers and Sisters: I write to
say good-by. I don't believe God
loves this church because none of you
ever die. I don't think yon love eaoh
othor, because I never marry any of
you. I don't think you lovo inn, because yon do not pay me my s-ilar;
Your donations are mouldy fruit and
wormy apples, and 'By their fruit ye
shall know them '
"Brothers, I am going to a better
place���1 bnvo been culled lo be (hap
lain of a penitentiary. Where 1 go
yo cannot now come. I go lo prepare
a place for you,and may tlie Lord have
mercy on year souls. "

pleased to call its inconsistency
ing with the Cnundinu Pacific Railway, lauding it ono day and abusing
it tho next. Onr correspondent's sagacity would be an invaluable possession to tbe ordinary newspaper. Tho
Miner is utterly unconscious of anything in the least approaching iucon
sistency, even with
its correspondent's admonitions to
guide it. It neither lauds the Canadian Pacific, nor abuses it. As that corporation is not a benevolent institution, thero is no special necessity for
lauding it; as it is a business concern it is entitled to the snme courteous consideration wo would expect to
display toward any other enterprise.
Sometimes it comes into conflict with
public interests, aud ou those occasions
The Minor hopes it will never fail
in its duty to tako the position those
interests seem, in its judgment, to demand.
Among a large section of the British
Columbia pross, City Councils, and
Boards of Trade it is assumed that
thero is a war on between tbo Canadian Pacific and tbo Kettlo River charter people. That la a public question. If a
question at all, aud one ou which The
Minor is clearly entitled to express an
opinion, if its knowledge of tbo merits
can furnish it with one. Mistakenly or
otherwise, it believes that a Corbin
charter would do more harm to Southern British Columbia than it would do
good. Some purely local bonefits there
might bo, it is true, but theso would
be very far from compensating for the
goneral injury resulting from thf complete diversion of the trade of w hat
Will undoubtedly bo au important mining camp. Taking this view of it,
The Miner cannot do less than give
expression to it. That is not landing
the Canadian Pacific; it is merely
an opinion ou a question of public policy, formed and expressed without
hostility to ono side or undue favor to
the other.
The question of the Nelson sampling
works is quito another matter. As
presented iu tbe statement to Tbo
Minor, thore was the appearance of a
desiro ou the part of the Canadian
Pacific to block Nelson in acquiring an
important local industry, through jealousy of a competitor. From all that
transpired at the meeting of the Board
of Trado, where tho facts of tho case
Wero supposed to have been ventilated,
it may well bo doubted whether the
Canadian Pacific has beon guilty of
tho selfishness attributed to it. This is
ns may appear subsequently, however.
What concerned The Miner wns the
prospoct of tbo loss of a valuable industry, und if this were to bo duo to
the Canadian Pacific it was ono of tho
most natural and apparent ot tho duties of Tho Miner to condemn it.
That is not abuse, nny moro than is
opposition to the Corbin charter
laudation. It is simply a Bouse of
public duty, whether conceived intelligently must bo left to tho judgment
of othora.
The Miner doos not exist to misrepresent tho Canadian Pacific, or to
furnish apologies for its conduct. Recognising the immense good it has
done for this Western country, it believes it is entitled to the generous
troatment of tho people. It is a Canadian road, built by Canadians for Canadians, largely with Canadian money.
The least Canadians can do is to judgo
it   fairly.    Tbo  Miner   lias no   sym-

with
I British Columbia ns a field for  investment, for  ho   will never kuow   when
he will be  Bubjectod to statuatory repudiation   of    public    obligations.    It
would  lie just as honest to pass an act
repudiating   the   Provincial  debt,   as
to havo tbis dishonest measure  among
our laws.
An   Act respecting   appointments to
iii    t :\ ,*!ta"o of i Boards and other Public Bodies.    This
' is, so it is said, a   confession   by  Mr.
Martin that ho was   sorry   and frightened at having been influenced by Dr.
Lewis    Hall   and    other  teinporanco
workers into   appointing   Mr.    H    G.
Hall to tho police magistracy.
Acts to amend the Power of Attorney, Bills of Sale aud Partnership
Acts. These aro little schemes of Mr
Martin's and will carry out their personal objects. As tbey are from tbo
Manitoba statutes, and wero enacted
thero for similar purposes, but being
only personal in their object, they may
do no barm.
Acts respecting tho various public
departments���defining their scope and
duties. Down in Manitoba, where
there is very little to do, it is necessary some sessions to manufacture Acts
so as to have some semblance of milking laws. These silly parodies on
statutes aro samples,aud just ns useless
ns they are silly. Particularly useless
aro thoy in view of tho fact that Mr.
Martin is preparing a bill for next
session constituting himself tho whole
Government (with several office assistants from Manitoba).
There is another littlo point in connection With this corner grocery piece
of legislation, and it is this: Mr.
Hume had to resign bis seat for somo
trivial reason. The Government
didn't expect he would bo re-elected',
and thoy didn't try very hard to help
him. Mr. Higgins wanted the seat
but felt bo couldn't be re-elecled after
his onslaught ou the military at Esquimau, for not voting for him, after
the strenuous efforts he had made in
tbo general election for that particular
vote. There had also been a bye-election iu Yictoria, where the peoplo had
turned down Mr. Martin very severely.
To get even is Mr. Martin's cardinal
maxim. He couldn't disfranchise the
city, but ho would do bis best in that
direction; ho therefore disfranchised
the military to please Mr. Higgins,
and tho civil service to please himself
and a few kindred Populistio or Anarchistic spirits. There aro other little spite-fulnesses apparent iu tbo Act,
such as ommitting tho words "at
Victoria" iu relation to tbo location
of Government House.
An Act respecting Liquor Licenses.���
This is a Manitoba meausre, and besides manifesting that penchant for
which Mr. Martin is remarkable, viz. :
vesting unlimited power in that personage called the Lientenant-Gov-
ernor-in-Council, it servos to put nn-
othei Manitoba enactment on the statute book. Ono peculiarity about it,
but evidently an oversight which will
ho rectified next session if Mr. Martin
is still Attorney-General, is that applications for licenses must apply to the
Finance Minister at the city of Vic-
loira; it also mentions the Superin
tendeiits of Piovincial Police ��� another
mistake.
An Act to nincnd the Land Act.���
This Act may shortly be said to be an
iinnouneemnt to tho world that unless
a settler or an investor is prepared to
siand in with the Attorney-General
and bis chums, there is no use applying for land in British Columbia. In
otiier WOrdl the measure is intended
to work in with the Placer Mining
Act to keep population and capital
form Britinh Columbia. Prominent
throughout the act is the feature of all
the Attorney-General's legislation,
viz. : that the Legislature has been
hypnotized into vesting limited power
in the Lieutenant-Governor-in-Oounoil
who iu this instance, is represented
by one unscrupulous political truck -
ster who drags the rest of tho Cabinet
around by the noso.
An Act to provido for special surveys.���This is another Manitoba acr,
intended to work in with the Torrens
Act, and lo provide for further friends
of Mr.Martin in connection therewith

Press and Printer has tho following
sage advice, founded on experience, to
give, regarding that universally in -
lereating subject, advertising: '"Advertising does not pay,' somo peoplo
say, yet the most successful firms aro
always the largest advertisers.
There is a way of advertising that docs
uot pay, and it is to place an advertisement iu a paper because it has a
cheaper rate than somo other, while
tho rate paid to tho lirst paper is high
even at the best, judging from results
coming in. if any nt ull. Judicious
advertising always pays, and that paper is the cheapest which brings tho
best results, no mutter what its rate
may be.''

The company will be beru only one
lligbt. The play ia a comedy wilh a
Swedo oharaoter ns its hero und when
well produced is oxceodingly_ funny.
Judging by tho following iron" a recent number of the Haker City, (Oro.)
Republican, tho production here should
be worth seeing.
"The play of 'Ole Olson' by Mark-
urn's Now Vork Theatre Oompany lust
night, drew a largo audience, While
llie play jtself is not a new one. J'ot
the rendition of tho principal character hy Mr. Miirkliiun was given iu
such a manner ns to win unstinted

" As o, dialect comedian, Mr. Mark-
ham euunut he improved upon and his

that crowded housos will greet this
oompany every night during their engagement, and that thoy will return

Speaking at tho Sixty Club dinner,
ou Thursday night, the Right Hon.
tit. John Brodrick dealt with our
foreign policy, pointing out that, in
regard to matters affecting other
countries, British prestige must bo reserved for doaliug with tho larger and
moro important, questions, Thoy could
not ho puttiug British prestige up to
auction every dnv. To use it sporting
metaphor, tho British Hon must be
kept for gront events. They could
not bring him out for evory platiug
stake. Nor, Mr. Brodrick concluded
could Imperialism ho dono on tlie
cheap. ��� London Empire,

The   Nows���Advertiser denies  tluit
the Government was guilty of  un not
of repudiation in regard to the rail-
Way, and gives as u reason lhat. it expressly reserved the right to Messrs.
Muckenzio <& Mnnn lo sun for uny
damages sustained by reason of the infraction of thoir contract. We fail to
sen how this niters tho case. Messrs.
Mackenzie & Mann did not contract
with tho Government for u lawsuit.
Thoy agreed to build a railway under
certain conditions and spent money under thu agreement. Now they are told
that Instead Of the railway they niuy
have a lawsuit. When a contract is
repudiated, the party injured always
has a light of action for damages, hut
thut does not make thn act nny the
less repudiation.���Victoria Colonist.

At tho moment when the output of
gold from tho Klondike and British
Columbia raised Canada to the fifth
place among gold-producing countries,
the Legislature of British Columbia
enactd a law that is cortain to react to
he disadvantage of hor growing miu-
ing interests, Buys tho Philadelphia
Saturday Evening Post.
Designed primarily to exclude
Amorican miners from tho Atlin country, tho act really deprives Canadian
miners, of whom there aro several
hundred working in Alaska, of tho
reciprocal privileges guaranteed by
tho   new   Alaska   Homestead   law  of
Congress.
Under the American act, native-
born Canadians aro accorded the same
mining rights as aro possessed by citi
zens of the United States, providing
tho laws of the Dominion and local
provincial ones in British Columbia
and the North West Territories accord
similar rights to Americans miners.
The now British Columbia law,
therefore, will have au effort not intended; it will not only keep Ameri
cans out of tho Atlin country, but will
also keep Canadians out of Alaska,
where, with all lhat has hoeu done,
gold-mining is still only in its infancy.

The Bossburg Journal   endeavors   to
be reliablo, but   finds the   same   difli-
culty to   bo   experienced   iu   all   live
mining camps.    Tlie editor,   however,
is "onto" the   combination   and; says
iu his last issue:    "As   tho   editor   is
not omnipresent, a  big  poreontago of
our mining news is obtained from persons whom   wi*   taka   lor  granted are
truthful;   at   times ourl confidonco  is
imposed upon by optimistic prevaricators, and reports   deviating   from   the
truth croup   into our columns.    These
cheerful  liars   are soon   spotted    nnd
their subsequent statements are taken
with   a   'urain   of stilt'   unless    confirmed by responsible   parties.    It ii a
criminal offense  in this State to  wilfully    givo   false reports   on   mining
properties with   a   view of   decieving
investors,   and   it is  a pity   that   the
law is not moro  generally   enforced. "
#   *   *
Mr. McArthur, the   inventor   of the
cyanide  prooeil for the  extraction   of
gold, has been   giving his views with
respect   to   the   future supply  of thai
metal.   He point   ont that into  mining for   gold only   eoiiimencedl   aboul
the year I860, and that up to that time
wo had only   been   gathering   up   ""'
detritus, as it were,   alluvial   deposits
being merely what* had crumbled down
from the   roofs.    Now   we   nrej going
to the sources and attacking the auriferous rocks, of   tin*   extent   of   which
wo   know   very     little, while of   the
depth to which they    may descend below the   earth's surface we know still
less.    They have   been traced for !i,0UU
feet downward,   ami geology confesses
its ignorance of what may   lie   below.
"Then seems no limit," observes Mr.
McArthur, "to   possible     discoveries.
Some years ago the   proportion   of the
precious metal obtained   from   alluvial
workings was as four to one compared
to what was won from its rocky   matrix.    Now these   figures aro   reversed.
In Kussia,  including Siberia, tho west
coast   of  Alriea,    British,   Dutch and
French   (luiaiia, sumo   of   tho   Sooth
American  states  and Borneo, the alu-
viul eutput is overwhelmingly greater
thnn that from   reefs, which is only a
thing of yesterday.    How great an in-
orouHO in the yield may bo  expected to
tako place, therefore, in ah these countries whon tho  steam engine nnd machinery  for   crushing   are  brought to
hear upon the reefs,   of  which the alluvial gold is the mere debrisV   "Gold
mining,"   concludes Mr.     McArthur,
"is just beginning to   tako   tho  place
that coppor or lead mining   hns   occupied for centuries.    I Ine  has   no more
reason to doubt the cuntinuanco of gold
reefs than one has to doubt the continuance   of other   metalliferous   mines.
No   ono can say   what   quantities   of
gold may bo   concealed   in   tho   more
central   parts   of the earth, nor  what
