William McKinley Defeats the Apostle of
Free Silver for the Second
Time.
Democrats have carried Greater New
York by about 87,500. The entire Republican state ticket lias been elected
anil   the   Republicans   made   gains in
both houses of the State Legislature.
The Republicans (ruined Beveral members of Congress from tills State, but
the official count may be required to
decide in one or more  close   districts.
New Yoik, Nov. 7.���Tlie result of
the polling in the United States yes-
U'l'iluy is that William McKinley is
for the second time elected president
nf the United States and William
Jennings. Bryan, for the second time
goes down to defeat. In the eastern
stales Mr. Bryan polled a much larger
vote than he did four years ago, but
in the west he ran behind. His gains
in tbe oast, however, were not large
enough to give him the electoral vote
of the eastern states and are therefore
of no benefit. As early as 8 o'cljek
last evening the returns were indicative of tlie sure election of McKinley
anil long before midnight the Democrats gave up all hope. There wero
few surprises. Tlie only state which
the Republicans bad really hoped to
carry, anil in which they failed, was
Kentucky, which gives Bryan its full
electoral vote of 13. In 1800 McKinley received 1:1 of these and Bryan
one. In Nebraska it looks very much
as though Mr. Ilryan bad lost bis Senatorial seat. The Legislature there
promises to be Republican nnd in such
event Bryan has been surely relegated to private life. In Pennsylvania
Senator (Quay's candidates for tlie legislature are defeated and tho man
whom even the Republicans, of which
he is onciulinit to lie corrupt will undoubtedly lose bis seat in the Senate
this winter. Tile very interesting
Senatorial light in Montana was won
by Mr. VV. A. Clark and he will go
back to the United States Senate with
no charges of corruption to again unseat him. As in 1800 Mr. Bryan's own
precinct in the eity of Lincoln. Neb.,
the eity itself, the county and the
state,   go    for   Mr.     McKinley.    The
! states of Washington and Minnesota,
although giving McKinley their en-
tiro electoral vote, promise to elect
Democratic governors, but the other
state ollieers will be Republican. New
York City, under tho influence of
Tammany, gives   Mr.  Bryan  a  small
| majority, but the state is   Republican
|by upwards of 125,000.
This morning there is   little   doubt
! that the following states, with the
electoral vote Indicated, have gone for
McKinley:
California, 0; Connecticut, (1; Delaware, :i: Illinois, 34; Indiana, 15:
Kansas. 10; Maine, (i; Massachusetts,
15; Michigan, M; Minnesota.'.); Maryland, s; New Y'ork, BOj,New Hampshire, 4 ; New Jersey, 111; North Dakota, 3; Ohio, 23; Oregon, 4; Pennsylvania, 38 ; Rhode Island, 4 ; Vermont,
4; Washington, 4; West Virginia, 0;
Wisconsin, 13; Wyoming, II; Utah, 3;
Iowa, 18 j Nebraska, 8.    Total, 388.
For Bryan���Alabama, 11 ; Arkansas,
8; Flordla, 4; Georgia, 13; Kentucky.
13; Louisiana, 8; Montana, 3; Mississippi. 0; Missouri, 17 ; North Carolina,
: 11 ; South Carolina, 0;   Soutli Dakota,
��� tl; Tennessee, 12; Texas, 1,1; Virginia,
13; Colorado, 4; Idaho, 3; Nevada, 3.
Total 150,
Washington, D. 0., Nov. 7.���Representative Loudonlager of New Jersey,
I President of tne Republican Congressional committee, at 10 o'clock this
forenoon olaimed the election of 201
Republicans to the next house, a majority of all   of   .11.    Tho   Democratic
Congressional headquarters was practically deserted ut 10:30 o'clock.
Chairman Riehar Ison bad . not put in
an appearance and his lieutenants had
stopped figuring. They conceded,
however, that the next house would
be Republican but declined to estimate the Republican majority.
New Y'ork, Nov. 7.���Tho Journal
sasy: "William McKinley has been
re-elected In a most decisive fashion.
Ills popular majority is much less
than in 1800, but bis electoral majority Is enormous. Through the haze
of this defeat the Democracy can see
tho victory that might have been.
Beyond a doubt Bryan would have
been triumphantly elected but for two
tilings. The first was the intrusion
of the silver issue. Free silver vuh
dead, and so unpopular that even its
corpse was enough to drag liny man
down to defeat.    Tlie second  was  the
poliey of cutting loose entirely from
the Philippines. That was not in accord with the spirit of the American
people. The people have evidently
made up their minds to dispose of free
silver once for all. The effort was
supcrllous, for free silver had ceased
to exist us a possible policy four years
ago, but the voters were determined
not to have the remains lying around
any longer. The Democratic party
lias paid by two defeats for the adoption of an unpopular and discredited
issue. The American public opinion
believes in tbe retention of tliejjl'liilip-
pines. and in the extension to that
country of a truly American form of
Government."
The Tribune says: "It is a nation
al victory. This administration is
sustained in its foreign policy, its
policy towards the territory acquired
through the war with Spain, and its
standard, the gold standard."
The Sun says; "No process of reasoning can make of this magnificent
victory anything else than an endorsement and approval of the administration of President McKinley."
Tlie Times concludes a long editorial by saying: "The currency is
safe, tlie national honor is safe. We
in Dow give ourselves with content-
1 minds and assured confidence te
our honorable public aud private concerns. "
Some of the bulletins received by
The Miner this morning were as follows :
Salt Lake, Nov. 7.���Returns are
slow tnjooming and early this morn
ing from tlie best estimate on returns
received McKinley baa carried the
state by not less than 4,500. Wells,
Republican] for Governor, has been
elected. Sutherland, Republican, has
been elected to Congress, and the Legislature will be Republican on joint
ballot.
Boise, Idaho, Nov. 7.���The Statesman, at 3:30 a. m., says; The 37
precincts already counted give the following figures: McKinley, 31173; Bryan, 31143. The net Republican guiu for
President is 11 per cent. If the percentage should continue McKinley
would carry the state.
Taeoma, Wash., Nov. 7.���Thirty-
nine precincts in Pierce county give
McKinley 3115; Bryan, 1850. For Governor 30 precincts' give Kogers, Democratic, 3315; Frill-, Republican,
211)8. Indications point to a divided
Legislative ticket and mixed result
on the county ticket. The count is
very slow.
Louisville, Ky., Nov. 7.���The Cour-
ler-Journal's figures show that 1053
precincts out of 1884 In the state give
Bryan a pluralty of 13,01)1 and Brene-
ham a pluralty ot 8851). The unreported precincts were about evenly
divided between the Democrats and
Republicans at the last election.
Portland, Ore., Nov. 7.���Orogon hnH

total vote of the state counted, the result Is as follows: McKinley, 27,1311;
Bryan, 17,073.
Omaha, Neb., Nov. 7.���The result
in Nebraska is close. The Democrats
claim that Bryan eariied the State
by 3,000 to 4,000. Republican Chairman Lindsay claims the State for McKinley by 5,000. Many precincts in
outlying sections have not yet been
heard from.
Indianapolis, Nov. 7.���Latest returns from Indiana indicate that the
Republicans have carried tho State by
fiom 38,00(1 to .13,000. The Republicans probably have elected eleven of
the thirteen Congressmen. The Legislature Is 'bought to be safely Republican.

St. Lonis, Mo., Nov. 7.���While complete returns have not been received

Bryan and Dockery, Democratic, have
carried the State by reduced pluralities. No complete figures can be
given.
Denvor, Colo., Nov. 7.���The Fusion
of Democrats, Silver Republicans, and
Populists, made a clean sweep in Colorado. Bryan's majority, according

Detroit, Mich., Nov. 7.���The latest
figures this morning give President
McKinley a plurality in Michigan of

the Republican candidate for Gover
nor, received 110,130 plurality. The
returns show a solid Republican Senate and only 11 Democrats in the
House.
Frankfort, Ky , Nov. 7.���Democratic
leaders hero claim Ilryan has carried
the state by upwards of 11,000 and
that Deckbam is elected Governor by

TO BUILD A BOAT.
Sir Thomas Lipton Lets the Contract
For the New Challenger.
New York, Nov. 7.���Sir Thomas
Lipton is conferring at Glasgow with
George 1,. Wutson, tbe designer of the
new challenger for the America's cup,
says a London dispatch to the Herald.
From authoritative sources it is
learned that Sir Thomas' visit was
for the purpose of signing contracts
for the building of the yacht. These
have been placed with thejllendersons,
Meadowside yard, the builders of the
Thistle, the three Valkyries, the Britannia, the Meteor and the Sybarita.
The date specified in the contracts
for the bantling over of the vessel is
March 30. The framework will he
laid down this week. The greatest
precautions ure being taken to preserve secrecy regarding the design. A
footpath along the banks of the Clyde,
which skirts the Henderson yard is a
already closed. As to the plans for the
sailing of the defender of the cup,
what K. A. Willard, the manager of
the new boat may do in tlie matter of
selecting a skipper, remains to be
seen. "Charley" Barr, the successful sailing master of the Columbia,
will be disengaged at tlie end of the
year. Burr brought the Vigilant buck
from England in Hi and was on that
yacht during her trial races with the
Defender. Mr. Willard is well acquainted with Captain Burr's ability
as a sailing master of cup boats.
There is anothei rumor about skippers. It is that Captain "Bob"
VVringe, the sailing master of Vice
Commodore Belmont's 70-footer Mine-
ola last season, will be the sailing
master of the Columbia while she is
being used as a trial boat for the new
defender. Also that when the time
i'oIIr around to put the Columbia in
commission C. Oliver Iselin will be
found to again be iu charge.
It is now almost a certainty that
the new defender will be plated with
brou/.e, says a Journal dispatch from
Providence. It is known that the
llerreshoffs are purchasing that metal. They have experimented with
various metals for tensile and torsional strength and none has been found
so satisfactory to Captain Nat's mind
us a smooth bronze, wnieli successfully resist corrosion and the maximum of lightness and durability.
Captain Nat spout a large part of
last week in his private shop at home
and it is understood lie has completed
bis model of the defender and reduced
many of his plans to writing. The
work of construction, it is rumored,
will probably be started within a
fewjweeks.

(SPBCIAL TO THE   -IMil.i
Victoria, B. ('., Nov. 7.���R. M. S.
Empress of Japan, Capt Pybus,returned to the Royal Roads in distress at
10:30 last night. She had been in collision with the 1,707 ton American
steel bark Abbey Palmer.formerly the
unfortunate Blairmore. whieh capsized aud sank three years ago in San
Francisco harbor. The collision took
place off the entrance to the straits,
and the Empress was Ho Beriously
damaged that Capt. Pybus deemed it
advisable to return and go into dry-
dock. The bark was also badly damaged, but not so seriously that she
could not sail on up to the sound.
The bark, it seems crashed into the
Empress and carried away part of her
bridge, bulwarks and stove-in part of
her iippri works as well ns bending
some of her plates near the water line
ou the port side. The Japan left the
outer wharf on Monday night for tlie
Orient. Temporary repairs will be
made here and she will proceed to
Hong Kong to be docked.
11. M. S. Condor has been commissioned to replaced II. M. S. Pheasant
on this station nnd will leave for Es-
qulmalt on the 28th. She Is a new
steel sloop of war, carrying 120 men.
She is equipped with six four-inch
aud six smaller quick firing guns,
she has a displacement of 080 tons, has
speed of 13', knots and machinery   of
14,500 horse power.
tralla, in speaking of the projected
Pacific cable by Great Britain said;
"We should not hesitate to link our
cables with the United States cables
in tlie Far East, and to me it seems
unwise to do otherwise. The only objection 1 can see is that if the United
States wore at war with another
power, that other power might cut
our cable in Hawaiian waters."
Mr. Bcllairs thought war between
Great Britain and the United States
was simply out of tho question, and
should not be considered as a possible
contingency, lie then urged the construction of tlie Pacific cable as an
absolute necessity as a help to commerce.
Mr. Bcllairs gives sonic interesting
| statistics regarding cables. Tho
length of the submarine cables of the
world is 178,000 knots, and were built
at a cost of ��50,000,000. 'The length
of the Government owned cables Is
30.0111) knots. The longeBt span of
cable in the world is between Cape
Cod, Massachuetts, and Brest, France.
The greatest depth a cable has been
laid is between Bermuda and Turks
Island, a depth of lS.'JOO feet. The
average life of a cable is 35 years, but
cables are still working over thirty
years old. The greatest length a message has been sent in 4,733 knots.
Tbe estimated speed of all British Pacific ables is twelve words of live letters or minute, but ou the Atlantic
a speed of forty-four words a minute
bus been attained. By the duplex
system fifty words a minute eau be
sent. It takes one year to make 18,-
000 knots of cable in the United Kingdom. The average speed of laying
cables is seven knots an hour.

wa wonilflr why a l'rovince .0 rieii in
iis opportunities for mining development is so slow in attracting Bntisli
capital. There are thousands of Hritish capitalists interested in mining
who have never heard of our resources, for tho very gooil reason that
the mining journals they read have
nothing to say of us. or the little they
do say conveys nothing to the mind of
the reader. Is there no way to correct this oversight'.1 Or where does
tlio fault lie'.' If a well conducted,
wide-awake (lovernment ageney in
Loudon can do something towards
bringing our mineral wealth under
the notice of the reading Hritish public, it cannot   be established too soon.
M'KIXLKV AGAIN.
The poliey of expansion is not distasteful to thu American people, nor
do they lind anything to excite serious disapproval either in the management of affairs in the Philippines or
the administration In 1'orto Itieo. And
hey are aH much opposed as ever to a
debased currency. For these reasons
they have voted to give Mr, McKinley
a second term us President. If a Democrat who was less of a demogogue
than Mr. liryan had been the candidate against linn, and running on
the liryan platform, the result might
have been different. There was dis-
trust of the Democratic policy, no
doubt, hut there was greater distrust
of Bryan himself. With the air cleared of the foul political vapors that
have been emitting their poison for
several years past, and with such a
candidate as Mr. Cleveland, the Democrats in the election yesterday would
have swept the country. With liryan
they have only succeeded in completely demoralising themselves as a party.
The country, fortunately, has now
bad the last of him. The looker on
who was friendly to tbe Democrats
advised four years ago that they drop
him. Today they realise the terrible
mistake they made in not doing 80,
The United States is too advanced to
tolerate Tammanyisui, and the party
that clings to it and depends on it to
pull it through is much in need of reorganisation.
The Associated Press would lose
nothing if it employed correspondents
iii London who had some knowledge
of Hritish methods of government.
Following the recent elections in the
,'nit.il Kingdom,those correspondents
filed frequent dispatches for consumption in the United States, containing
much information of thu new (lovernment that was about to be formed by
Lord Salisbury. The old Government,
it was understood, was dissolved with
the House, and an entirely new one
would require to be formed, as they
do at Washington after each Presidential election. They did not know
that under the British system a dissolution of the House does not necessarily involve a dissolution of the Cab-
net. That depends on something quite
different. These same correspondents
are now saying that Lord Salisbury
will ask for the resignation of the
.Speaker, in order to make a place for
a late colleague, Sir Matthew White
Ridley, This is another conspicuous
example of their ignorance of the Hritish system. There is no Speaker at
the present time, and therefore a resignation is impossible. The Speaker's
term of otlice expires with the House,
and a new election is necessary witli
each Parliament. The Associated
Press employs American agents in
London, who take it for granted that
they do things at Westminster the
same as they are done at Washington.

WHAT   IS  THE MATTER?
One can often hear on the street the
expression that sueh 11 person, or
thing, or circumstance cuts no ice.
We do not require to he told what it
means; we know,, without, Headers
of British mining journals and of othor journals that make a feature of
mining in their columns, must come
to the conclusion that Hritish Columbia cuts very little ice in the Mother
Country as a held for mining speculation. Canada, indeed, from one end
of it to the oilier, is rich in minerals,
They have coal and iron in the East,
in quantities of which no one pretends to seu the end. Western Ontario is ricli iu gold, as operations
now iu progress give practical evidence. We in Hritish Columbia have
got it into our heads that this Province, taking it all in all, is the richest
mining region in tlio world. And tho
Klondike has really earned for itself
a very considerable reputation as a
producer of gold. Yet how little is
said of any of them In tlie mining
journals of Great llritain I
We have before us British Mining

claims. In a two-page review of the
mining market a few   lines   are given
tothe l.e Roi, if all wore colleoted

make less than half a column, The
remaining thirty nine ami a half columns are given up lo Australia, South
Africa, and New Zealand,
Why in this?   it is  no explanation
to say that it is due to deliberate neglect of Canadian mining Interests,
for we do   not Buppose and   refuse   to

Ever hear of a tota' "hstainer being

No? Well, there are such human
anomalies, just as there are giants
who are. dwarfs, anil midgets who are
crinnts, only this is not a figure of
speeoh, but an actual fact.

enough,
���Well, now, 1 live in Newark with
that, fellow. I've known him for tell
years, and 1 urn will lo take my oath
"that he never diinks a drop of any In-
toxlaating liquor,"
1 looked at my companion with a
Broile of good-natured tolerance, and
turned my attention to (he cigar 1
was smoking. Then lie rattled off his
steiiy :
"That man is Government liquor

into the port of .New York, must he

"It. is tlie duty of thu tester to open

duty to wiilie him up and put him off
at Newark, and the cabbies at the
Station are always on the luukuut for
him.
"He carries ii 81 bill in his waistcoat pocket for the man who hauls
him home, and never any mure than
that. For this reason he lias never
been robbed.
"Many and many a time 1 have
gone into Baloons with him and lie invariably takes seltzer or Lemonade, or
something like that, lie never gets
drunk until lato in the day and he
never loses his ability tu distinguish

SHIP'S BOTTOM REPLACED,
ENGINES NOT DISTURBED.
A remarkable feat in ship building,
such us those directly interested say
has never before heen attempted in
this country, is just now attracting
much attention at the Erie Basin.
The feat in question its the removal of
the entire bottom uf a big ocean
steamship and replacing it with a new
one Without disturbing the engines,
boilers and other machinery weighing
many tuns, 'the work, begun about
six weeks ago, has now reached that
stage where success is assured, That
the tusk was a dillieult one will he
readily appreciated by people having
even a little knowledge of how steamships are constructed.
Last spring the tramp steamer Son-
ga. with a gruss tonnage of mure than
3,000, and owned by a Norway linn
and commanded by Capt, U. Mejlaen-
der, was stranded in Southern waters.
ller backbone was broken, and fur a
time it was supposed that she wuuld
prove a total loss. Wreckers were set
at   work   and  something   like   three
liiuliths later the ship was limited.
Rocks caused great   damage   tu   the
Songa'S butt       'I'll.' ship's value lie

uf those who undertook the task. 'Ihe

proprietors of  tin' Columbia   Engine
Works, whloh plant, is located at William mid linlay streets, Brooklyn.
Tbe Soiiga was patched up and
started for port, where she arrived
about September 1. She was placed in
tho sectional dry doek at Erie Baaln
and work on her wus begun. Two
woeks more and she will be us good
as a new ship.
After   an    inspection hy   expert,   il
was deemed necessary to remove the
bottom from stem to stern. This
meant, of course, the OUttlng away of
uot only the big Hindi plates but all
the supporting material, such us  the
keel. Iluuis unci keelsons. <irdiimilv

less magnitude and on much smaller
ships everything is removed from the
hull, including, of course, all machinery. The McNeils decided that they
would not go to all that trouble in
this instance, aR they wished to proceed rapidly. Now, to cut awuv the
bottom of any iron vessel is a big undertaking.
Sonic idea of what this meant in
the case of the Soiiga can be imagined
when it is stated that she measures
320 feel on her keel, is 111 feet beam
and .1 feel in depth.
A large force of men was placed at
work on the steamer under Superintendent Williamson, a most capable
man for tlie work The big ship was
shored up with many wooden uprights, and thousands of bolts which
held the great steel work of thu bottom in place wore removed hy the use
of pneumatic drills As section after
section was removed it became ueccH-
sary to place crib shining under the
big engines and indict, until the bottom was entirely separated from the
ship.
-Many wooden uprights or posts supported the great steel sides. About 3,-
ikiu ions, it is estimated, were kept in
position in this manner, while the
workmen built a new bottom in the
ship While thus supported, 17" steel
plates 01 shells, 20 by -II feet, live-
eight lis of an in.ib thick and averaging one ton hi weight each were removed Eighty top tanks,of about tlie
same size and weight, were taken
from tho inside. The eighty Boors, the.
parts to which the plates are bolted;
over 500 inter cost lays, which act as
braces for the same: the keelsons and
Ihe margin plates OU the port Bide
were   removed.
CLASSIC ORIGIN OF   FAMILIAR SLANG PHRASES,
A clelebratcd writer has decided
that, while there is slang that is vulgar, there is also slang which is "of
ancient and honorable origin" The
latter kind is represented by the
words or sentences that formerly referred to some legend of classic Interest, which legend has ere this passed
into oblivion tor all hut. those persons wiio like to be inquiring antiquarians.
An example of this is tlie slang expression, "1 must cut my stick,''
meaning "I must depart." From time
inimeinoial the Irishman, before leaving for some foreign country, has cut
a shillelagh lo hear him company,
while it was tlie custom of the pilgrims to the Holy Land to cut each a
palm stick as proof that they hud BC-
eoinplished their purpose. So We see
that Ihe saying, "lle has cut bis
slick" is not as vulgar as it sounds.
Again, the exclamation, "Oh���cut
it Bhorl I" alludes to the mythological
legend of Atropos, one of the Three
Fates, who cut the thread uf life spun
by her Bister Clotho,
How many of us who USe or lie ar
the familiar expression, "It was Ilobson's choice," are acquainted witli the
real sort uf selection thai Tobias Hoi'
son offered his guests'.' This is the
genuine version of tlie tale: The Bald
Tobias Ilobson was a Cambridge inn
keeper, with forty horses in his sta-
blcs, some better ot course, than others. When a traveler came to request
a mount he was obliged tu tuke the
steed thai siood nearest the clour, although there were so many others advertised as for hire. If the traveler
objected to that mount, all be could
do was tu wait until BOme Other traveler hud come for one, anil so removed this,   and left its next d ��� neigh
hor ncaiv.t the Btable door.
"By hook and by crook" is an allusion in an ancienl manotlal oustom,
which permitted tlie neighboring poor
to take all the wood that thoy could
reach and pull down from the forest
trees,    using    only   their     shepherd's
crooks,
liven the well-known saying.so simple' tie  understand,   "that is  nuts   to
him." proceeds, so authorities say.
not so much from the pleasure we
may all be supposed to lake iu Ihe.lla
vor of nuts, as the fact, that, the Ihe
mans always partook of them at dessert, and considered theiu tit toys for
children,
A very common phrase is 'pay the
piper."  Only the other day a traveler
l.y train was protesting loudly to his
companion,"! soon got out of it when
I saw that I sliould have lo pay the
piper!" Wus he thinking, I wonder,
of the famous Pled I'iper of llunic-
111., who. ufter freeing the town of
nils unci mice, wus refused payment
hy the citl/.ens'.'
"'IO take her down a peg" is nothing hut u sailor's direction as to the
lowering of the ship's colon,
"Put that into you pipe and smoke
it" is an allusion to the pipes of peace
or war that arc   solemnly   -nicked   by
some American Indian trlbcsi while to
"get the sack" is u fate thut sometimes overtook Inmates of u certain
sultan's harem, who were  pul Into a

1 NEWS OF
j       THE MINES
A Ymir dispatoh says: As anticipated, the September run of the Vmir
mill is a record-breaker. The offloial
details of the run are not yet to hand,
but a oable sent   to   I.ecu.Ion iputes
the output   for the  ith   at   847,000,
or a net profi! of $35,000, This month
was the first month thai the full complement of 80 stamps run uninterruptedly, and may, therefore, be taken as
representing tl"' earning power of
the mill. The mine Is shipping some
of tine rich orude ore, by means of
whloh the profit could easily be raised
to   840,    per   month,   or   sullii-ic-nt
to pay a 50 per cent, dividend on the
whole capital of the company. The
October run of the mill will not be
ijuitc up to September record, as in
the last week of the month the new
cable of the tramway broae and had
to be replaced by the old one.
It is reported that a large sale of
treasury stock of the llroken Hill
Mining and Developmetnt Company
has heen made to a Boston syndicate
and that in consequence the company
has sufficient funds to erect tne mill
which has been so long needed on the
Wilcox mine. In view of the lateness of the season, however, building
operations will be deferred until next
spring. Meanwhile, however, a quantity of the richer ore will he shipped
to the smelter as Boon as rawhlding
becomes pract icable,
The right of way for the Tamnrac
trainwiu has been cleared and operations commenced on the construction
of the owers to carry the cable. The
total length   of   the   tramway will be
0,000 feet .

.lohn Harris has just left Vmir,
where he went, to look after tho interests of the Silver Crown Consolidated
Mining Company, which he recently
reorganized, purchasing tho Shiloh
and Royal claims. Work on the
claims was commenced in September,
and Mr. Harris says that the result
has heen highly satisfactory. A good
deal of the work has been in surface
prospecting and a all-foot shaft has
been .sunk. Said he: "Values have
uniformly improved with depth, and
erosscutting at the bottom of the
shaft proves the quartz to be at least
1(1 feet wide. The entire ledge is min
eralized. the chief values being ii
silver and lead. The last assays tak
en gave over 88 In gold alone, so that
the directors feel fully satisfied with
the property,
"A working tunnel from the Dundee wagon road has heen commenced,
It will tap the ledge at a depth of l'.iu
feet when it is :.'ou feet In. By drifting on the ledge from there a depth
of between 000 anil Tim feet can be attained. 1.. 1'. Trask, a well known.
practical miner, is in charge of the
work. Substantia] shops, etc.. have
been erected and ore cars and T-rails
are on the ground. The property is
therefore equipped for rapid work
and it is hoped to reach tho ledge
within four months. The- tunnel is in
about 15 feet, and it will be pushed
forward as rapidly as possible with
two shafts.
"The property is so well situated
that there will be no trouble from
now and no boarding-house or bunk
house is required, as the mouth of the
tunnel Is only In minutes' walk from
town. I have recently secured water
rights lor the company that will fur
nish abundant power for all thu machinery that will he used, either power drills, concentrator or stamp mill.
'Assays from the pay slioot of galena
on the surface went from si - to 851
per ton. mostly in silver and load, and
with the gold values coming ill witli
depth we believe we havo satisfactory
evidence of the value of the- property, "

Drewry goes from Toronto to Mon-
trcal.to meet the directors of the Canadian Gold Fields syndicate, and arrange plans for carrying on active de-
elopment on the True Blue group all
winter. 'These properties were under
bond to the Hall Mines Company for
805,000,they having spent a very large
sum in development work before they
relinquished the bond at the time of
their recent financial difficulties.
During the time the Hall Mines had
the property under bond they shipped
two carloads to their smelter, the returns from which were respectively
In. 1 per cent, and 13,4 per cent.
copper.
Mr.Drewery says that tlio True lilue
is one of the best, if not the best, copper properties in British CoUimhia.
Already considerable tonnage has been
blocked out and is in sight in the
mine, but it is the announced intention of the company to carry on systematic development for several
months before shipping any ore.) It is
likely the property, will be equipped
with a tramway in the spring.

evidently an eye for detail, in his
article in the Mail describing the
effect of I.onl Roberts' advance upon
I'lvturia un the prisoners at Watervaal
and either guards, he wrote! "Hollander and HritisheT.soldier and Hoer,
peasant, prisoner and warder, joined
in a universal scene of congratulation,
in a mutual expression of esteem and
a general glass of Robert Hrown'a
Four-Crown Scutch Whiskey. Happy
the lot of tin- prisoners who were able
to soothe their sorrows with so famous a brand as Robert Brown's
" Four-Crown."
Just received at J. A. McDonald's
a shipment of "Gentleman in Khaki,"
"Lord Roberts," "Buller " "Kitchener," and the "Tartan I'la id" candy
boxes, which when filled with our
choice candies, cannot be equalled as
