bad as much if not more to do with it

one. of the most charming of Dublin

this friendship was the fact that she
was nn anient Catholic and home ruler
and through her iniluenee Mr. Plunkett's Unionist opponents belived he
came under the direct iniluenee of
Catholic priests. So nil Ihe forces of

London. Oct. 1:1.���The Times publishes today Dr. Morrison's mail accounts of events that led up to the
siege of Pekin. lle says that the
Hoxers only became Important after
the German occupation of Kiao Chow.
The Chinese were ascribing the disastrous drought and famine with other
troubles to the judgment of Heaven
for the usurpation of tlie Empress
Dowager. She seized upon the "Boxer" movement, according to Dr. Morrison, as a means of diverting popular wrath from herself to the foreigners, and appointed Yu llcieu,
founder of the Boxer set, to be Governor of Shan Tung in March, 1809.
Thus, uniler Imperial protection, the
Hoxers preached the doctrine that it
was the foreigners and not the Empress Dowager who had aroused the
wrath of the gods.
"As if in answer to the Hoxers.
came the anti-forlgn outrages." continues the correspondent, "culminating in the destruction of the railway
station at Feng Tai. The long
waited rains came on May 88th, and
were regarded as a sign as the direct sanction of higher powers to the
work of the Hoxers.
"Three days Inter extra foreign
guards for the legations arrived. The
Hoxers became increasingly audacloUB,
and things went from bad to worse
until the legations were ordered to
quit Pekln and Huron Von Kettcler
wiis killed. There is not the shadow
of doubt that his murder was deliberately planned hy the authorities and
executed by an ollicer resplendent in
tho form of   the imperial troops."
Dr. Morrison highly praises the
fearless courage of Dr. Anent, the
American Missionary, who, when Mr.
Conger was obliged to decline the i3-
queBt for an escort for the Tung Chow
missionaries, undertook the journey
alone. It was an net of courage and
devotion, In- says, thai eemed to us
who know the country.a di fd of hero
ism. On the arrival of the Tung Ohou
missionaries at Pekin they held a conference and sent an appeal by cable In
President MoKlnley on .lime 8th over
the head of   Mr, Conger.
"It would be interesting tn know,"
says Dr. Morrison, "whethor this over
reached Washington. "
Polling Day In Yale-Kootenay-
Gariboo May be November 21.
The following telegram was received from Mr. D. .1. McDonald late this
"Kamloops, B. C, Oot. 13,
"Miner, Nelson,  H. C. :
"Seventh November does not necessarily apply. 1). .1. M'Donald. "
The Minor tried last night and today to reach by wire Mr. D. J. Macdonahl, returning ollicer for the Yale
Cariboo district, to learn from him, if
possible, the probable date of tho
election in this riding, but has received word that Mr. Maodonald is
not in Kamloops and cannot be reach-
���d   by telegraph.
There seems to be little doubt, bow-
over, that the electors of the Yale-
Cariboo district will have to wait for
several days after November 7, before
they will cast their ballots. Nominations cannot bo made until October 111,
nomination day, and the ballots cannot be printed, therefore, until after
that date. This will leave but five or
six days to reach tlie furthermost
points in the district. Under ordinary eircu.nstaiioeS a man would take an
oven chance of reaching any place
whore votes will be received in the
district in six days, but a returning
ollicer cannot take chances and must
therefore lix a date which will leave
plenty of time to arrange lor everything. That the date to be fixed will
be within two weeks of November 7.
there is little doubt, as the returning
ollicer is obliged by law to lix the date
ns early as possible after the polling
d_y- throughout the Dominion.
Those Liberals who believe the
Laurier Government will bo returned
are more than pleased with the prospect of a later polling day. They say
that with Liberal victory throughout
the Dominion the Yale-Cariboo district would then go strongly Liberal
and Mr. Gallihcr would be elected
with a handsome majority. Some
Conservatives are inclined to agree
with the Liberals in this respect, but
they use the same argument in discussing their prospects. They do not
admit that the Laurier Government
will be returned, but on tho other
hand are confident that the Conservatives will bo victorious. In any event
they are sure of the election 04 Mr.
MaeNeill, but say that with Conservative victory elsewhere Mr. MacNcill
will have a very largo majority, much
larger tball he otherwise would have.
Conservatives are just as pleased,
therefore, with the later polling day,
as are tho Liberals.

Tung Chow, August 30.���It is 80
miles by river fiom Tien Tsin to this
place, and now, two weeks after the
Allied forces marched there, the signs
of war and devastation are more apparent than they were at first. Ports
have been stationed at intervals of
two miles,andthe troops have completed the work of desolation aud ruin.
Tin- villages that were only partially
burned are now utterly destroyed, as
they were found to be building places
for snipers who attacked single travellers and occasional small parties.
The English and American troops are
supplied with chickens nnd eggs by
the Chinese who sell the former at a
dollar a dozen and eggs for one dollar
a hundred. The Chinese avoid Hessian camps as the Russians are even
now killing them in the most brutal
and cold-blooded manner. Irrespective
of age or sex. There is hardly a man
iu the Chinese releif expedition who
has not a story to tell of Russian barbarism, of which ho has been an eye
witness. Some of the stories are so
excruciatingly revolting that it is
difficult to believe them. At this
place, which is the river port for IV
kin, coolies who bad been towing
Russian boats lay down to rest at the
completion of their trip. They were

What an Assayer Says of the Metal Uranium as It is Found in the
Venus Mine.
Since the publication in The Miner
of the find of uranium in the Venus
mine ore,mining- men throughout this
distriot have had a very fruitful topic
of dlBCUS&io . The pessimistic mining
man has been sure that the cost nf
saving the precious metal would
amount to more than its value and
has refused to look at the matter in
the same light as his more optimistic
brother who is inclined to believe tbe
best of everything until shown to be
mistaken, l-'or the benefit of all w-ho
are interested in the find, The Miner
lliis secured from Mr. A. L. Mclvillop,
assayer, a statement in regard to the
metal itself and as it exists in tho Venus ore.    Mr. Mclvillop Bays!
"Uranium belongs to the chromium
group of elements which includes also
molybdenum and tungster. It is a
white metal, resembling iron or
nickle, malleable, nearly as bard ns
steel, and is capable of a high polish.
It has a specific gravity of is.7. It is
not a very ubundant element and not
having superior metallic qualities it
has not found its way into the arts as
.-i competitor to the cheaper metals.
It is not found as a natural metal.
The chief ore has hitherto been pitchblende which consists mostly of an
impure uranic oxide. There arc various methods nf obtaining uranium
from this ore. Uranic oxide yields,
by the action of acids, uranyi suits.
which are highly sensitive to light
and are used for photographic purposes. The most Important compound
of titanium from a practical point of
view, is uranium yellow, a sodium
di-ui-itnatc, whieh is extensively used
in painting ami enamelling glass ami
piirclniu ami  for preparing uranium
glass. The mineral as found ill the
Venus mine appears to be in n transition state, and possibly contains several of the compounds of uranium.
The specific gravity of the oxide vn
lies between five ami eight, anil some
of the uranium compounds are even
"'From several panning tests made on
the oro the greater portion of the so
culled uranium sand remained behind.
It is evident that vannors will concentrate this into a fuirly pure product
as thcte are few base impurities in
tho Venus rock. Cranium salts are
very roatlilv separated from iron compounds and the process is not costly.
The world's production does not
mount high up into the thousands,
Colorado is credited with IT tons of
ore in 'lis, valued at ��."i3u iter ton.
The oxide Uncinates 8'.'._r. and Sinn
per pound, while pure uranium is
worth about tJl'.iu per kg. (about 2l,
In addition to the above fiom Mr.
Mclvillop, The Miner has scoured
from Dr. W. O. Rose something in regard to the discovery of uranium, etc.
Dr. Hose is recognized as an eminent
Canadian chemist, having taken first
place ill chemistry in a class of 119 at
MoGlll College iu ''.ni.    Dr.  Rose says:
"Cranium was discovered by a German chemist, Klapi-oth in 1780. It is
related to the other rare metals, chromium.iiiiilybduifiuti and tungsten. It
is not found in abundance but is
widely distributed ill nature, but usually in too small quantities to make
its working profitable. It occurs in
pitchblende which is an oxide of uranium, also iu uranlte ami euxentte,
H is usually found associated with
copper, bismuth, moltutn ami tantalum. The metal Is prepared by the
action of metallic sodium on uranum
chloride and potassium chloride SB a
DUX, This is heated to a great heat
in a porcelain crucibleeoiilaincdV ilh
in a plumbago crucible. The metal if
so prepared is nearly as hard as steel,
of n bluish white color and is half as
heavy   again   as    lead.       It   dissolves
readily iii weak adds forming salts,
all of which are yellow or brown and
very heavy. The sodium salt known
as uranium yellow is used in painting
on porcelain and for coloring glass.
making it highly fluorescent. Some of
the salts are also used ill preparing
the mantles for Auer lights. The ni
Irate nf uranium is used in medicine
ill the treatment of diabetes."
Ainsworth, the oldest mining camp
in Hritish Columbia.is well represented at the   industrial   exposition, says
iiu- Spokesman-Review,   The  display
shows up properly the characteristics
nf the district.     It   docs   not.   give an
exaggerated Idea of tin- Kootenai
Lake camp, but affords an opportunl
ty of judging just what sort of region
Ainsworth is. The exhibit carried ofT
the SSOOnd prize for silver-lead ores,
coming next lo the Slocan, which if
haul tn beat, It got tile flrsl prize foi
im- ores und lite first for technical display; all of   which is a feather In the
cup of I). F. Strobeck, who has charge
nf the exhibit.
Ainsworth camp has a romantic history, which Mr. Strobeck tells well,
lle said yesterday: "Tbe first mine
discovered in Hritish Columbia was
located at Ainsworth. It was found
in ls:.'T by Hudson Hay Company packers passing up the lake. It was a lead
mine, and for a good many years tho
men ,if the company of adventurers
used the product of the mine for
making bullets for their old rifles.
The Indians also used it for tbe same
purpose. Later a large part of tho
produce was sent to the old country.
There was no Canadian Pacific Kail-
way then, and the ore had to be shipped down to San Francisco by land
and from thence it was sent on a
journey of many thousand miles
around Cape Horn to the old country,
where it was used for making bullets.
"The property was first located as a
mineral claim under the laws of Hritish Columbia in lss:.'. When the Hudson Hay men found it Hritish Columbia was a crown colony and was ruled
through Downing Street. When tho
Blue Hell was recorded the colony had
become a Province and was a part of
tbe Canadian Confederation. The
original owner of the claim was a
man named Sproule. In ISS4 he left
the niino for a few weeks to procure
some supplies. lu his absence the
claim was jumped. When Sproule returned matters became warm between
him and the jumper. Revolvers were
drawn, and Sproule shot and killed
the jumper. The murderer was tried,
found guilty and hanged. The property wns forfeited to the crown. It
was taken up and got into the hands
of Dr. Ilendryx, who worked it largely aud put up the smelter at Pilot Hay
to treat its ores. Ilendryx was one of
the first men to locate in Ainsworth
camp, lie went there is lust. It was
called llol Springs camp then from
the hot springs which exist there.
For some time the claim was worked,
and considerable quantities of ore
were treated at the smelter. Then tho
mine and smelter were shut down and
Dr. Ilendeyx turned his attention to
the Slocan, where he is heavily interested in the Last Chance mine.
"In this exhibit there are 41 properties represented. Ainsworth camp
was the first one In Hritish Columbia
to have a concentrating plant erected,
and that was on the No. 1 mine, some
me from which is on view here. The
plant was put up in 1898. The camp
today has four concentrators out of 10
which are in West Kootenay. The Nu.
1 has the largest amount of development done upon it of any mine In the
camp. Over L'.nili) feet of work has

At the Grenwood meeting two
nights ago a Liberal speaker boldly
and in all earnestness claimed that
the prosperous condition of trade during the past two or three years has
been due to the wiBc administration of
the Government at Ottawa. The gentleman who put forward this claim
is. we understand, a lawyer, and
therefore a person of some education.
He is presumed also to be a person of
some general information, although
the enemies of the profession will
maintain that this does not always
follow. If the Greenwood gentleman
was as serious as he professed to be,
and was not engaged in an impudent
and dishonest attempt to impose on
tlie credulity of a few simple eleotors,
if such were present, be presents in
his own person living evidence of the
fact that a lawyer may be as ignorant
as any one else.
No country can enjoy a full measure
of prosperity through means of its
own resources only. Germany Franco,
Great Britain, and the L'nited States
are probably the four greatest examples of self-contained countries that
there are in the world. Hut not one
of them is or can be independent of
the rest of the world. If trade conditions are bad in Germany and France,
Great llritain feels the depression; if
they are bad in Europe generally, the
United States suffera in sympathy.
Until quite recent years Canada, owing to natural causes, has been more
dependent than the average country
on outside prosperity. It is so dependent yet to a very large extent; but
since the National Policy has given
firm root to native industries, and
since a wito statesmanship gave power and vigor to the country by and
through a transcontinental railway,
we can make more of our own resources than was possible formerly. But
wo are less independent of external
Influences than the L'nited States or
the countries of Europe. That is a
condition of, our situation, and cannot be helped. However rich our resources and however enterprising the
people themselves may be, our industry und frugality will go for little un
less the times are good in the countries with which wo do our trading.
Everywhere throughout the world
the conditions have been unusually
favorable during the past few years,
People were inspired with confidence,
and enterprises of all kinds have
flourished In consequence. The prosperity of European countries affected
the United States, and the prosperity
of all of them made its iniluenee felt
in Canada. The Government at Ottawa had as much to do in producing
tlmsc favorable commercial and industrial relations as it had in making the
sun shine or the rain fall, and not
more. Little domestic conditions It
could affect, and no one is disposed to
deny it credit for anything it has
dune in this regard; but as to the
general prosperity which has marked
the period of its administration, there
Would he as much reason in claiming
the credit in Ocrmnny or the United
Stales ns In Canada. If the Greon-
Wood gentleman does not understand
this, wu would recommend him to
put aside his text books for a time and
apply himself to a course of reading

There is nothing surprising in making an exception of Yale-Cariboo in
Hi. Issue of the writs. It is a constituency of uiagnficont distances and
of almost inaccessible regions. It was
probably impossible to reach all of
them with ballot boxes, ballots, voters lists, and Instructions between
the date of the writs and the day

11 became necessary therefore to leave
the matter to the discretion of the

lug In Yule-Cariboo will probably
tuke place a week or two "Iter we all
shall know how the country has gone,
and the only evil that is likely to result in that the constituency may be
influenced to go with the winning
side. Neither of the candidates can
object to this, for both are confident
that their side will curry the day.
As Mr. Foley bus mi side, be cannot
in any event feel much disappointment,       	
An Alberta farmer bus a very good
reason for voting against the Government. "They have saved me twenty
cents a year on my postage stamps."
he says, "but my tobnooo costs me
two dollars a year inure.'' He goes
on to enumerate a number of other
articles of every-day consumption
which have been advanced in price,
but the one article of tobacco will settle the question with ninny an elector,
Some excellent citizens have no use
for the pipe.but, to the masses it is no
longer a luxury but a necessity of
life. The present Government have
put up the price of tobacco by increasing the duties, and the favorite
solace after a days hard toil comes
Inconveniently high.

The Miner is informed that the Labor candidate is a son of the late
Michael Harrison Foley, Tbe older
race of Eastern Canadian politicians

eloquent Irish-Catholla member of
the Parliament of old Canada, and us
a member of the Hrown-Dorion and
Saudfield Macdonald Governments in

cannot vouch for the alleged relationship, but if Mr.Chris. Foley is his son
he comes from very good stock.

OfHcer is a Kamloops resident.nnd The
Standard has probably heard aright.
Says The Victoria Times:
"Canadians are popular in Great
Britain in these days of -rampant
Imperialism.' Young George Brown,
son of the foundei of The Toronto
Globe, has beaten Oman Doyle for the
representation of Edinburgh in the
House of Commons, and Gilbert Parker, tbe Canadian literateur. has
achieved that which so many of his
literary brethorn in the Old Land
have failed ill. lie will sit for Grave-
send. And yet the Conservatives tell
us Canada lias no preference in Britain. We can have anything we want
over there for the asking."
There is more in this than the humorist of The Times Intended. We
may not have anything, but there are
few things within reason we cannot
have for the asking. Tbe time was
never more propitious for urging on
tireat Britain the right of the Colonies to preferential  treatment in the
Home markets. Never were tbe importance and value of tlie Colonies so
appreciated, and there should be no
difficulty in persuading the Hritish
people to a reciprocal preferential arrangement as a matter of Imperial
policy. Let Canada take the lead by
pronouncing for it. and the battle is
half won.

When the young women of Brooklyn undertake a reform they do it

There is no loophole, thanks to the

She is an active young woman, with
the horn reformer's keen eye for detecting abuses, wrongs and evil practices. It was no surprise, therefore,
to her friends, when she suggested not
long ago that the objective point for
their combined energies during the
coining winter ought to he olgarette

Women   are   the   conscience of   the

Whereupon the energetic young woman proposed a scheme that would
amount, to a social boycott of the
young men who did not do as they
were bid��� which young men usually
do, be it observed.
"Isn't that rattier���daring?" asked
one girl whose scheme of living in
eludes an attentive escort at her el-
how. "Suppose they let un alone und
smoked as much as they liked'."'
"Hut they enn't," promptly responded the* muster mind "There's
nobody else on the Heights. We're

Whereupon an  organization meet-
Igwas planned to decide thu ways and
means of the boycott, and the young
women   who   fell that the  social   ami
moral future of Brooklyn n-su-d in their
bands complacently went to spread
the. news abroad.
"All excellent thing." declared all
the fathers and mothers when they
beard 0< it "You girls couldn't be

ministers and school teachers, The
conspiracy against the olgarette grow
almoHt hourly.
Meanwhile the young men who
were the victims 'became extremely
alarmed und smoked as  h��'d as they
could, because they didn't know how
soon they might have to stop. Pipes
were to be allowed, they heard, hut a
pipe would never take the place of
cigarettes. What did girls know
about such things, anyway'.' Why a
pipe, now.���a pipe has to be filled'us
well us lighted, don't you know!
Last week the first important meeting was held, the league organized
and the rulesj and plan of action
formulated. And the next day, the
news was all over Brooklyn Heights.
Work began immediately, and although there is a good deal of muttering and protest on the part of the
cigarette smokers,the league members
are confident that their victory is
only a question of time. President
llallen. speaking of the league said:
"Young men do not seem to appreciate the ill effects of cigarettes,
and so we have decided to teach them
to use some other form of tobacco
that is less injurious. A number of
the young men have offered to help
us, and we shall try to show our appreciation of their help to sueh an extent that those who now laugh will
lie only too glad to follow in their
"At present some of our best friends
are never seen without cigarettes in
their Li-.ni lis or stick ing between
their lingers, discolored by nicotine.
Even if there were not a thought of
hygiene in the matter, the practice is
disgusting, and we are going to do
our best to stop it."
Aud the young men? They are
Hlow to discuss the matter, hut theit
manly brows are corrugated with an
unusual stress of though tfulness.
One young man prouiiueut in
Brooklyn society, speaking for the
others, said.: "Well, it only means
that we have got to give up cigarettes or the girls, and it is the cigarette, I guess, that gets the throw-
"We   lire    thinking,   however,     of
starting u league for the suppression
of mixed chocolates and ice-cream
soda. "
And the other young men in Brooklyn   are watching the result.

Continuod From First I'iiko.
Shipped to Pueblo. That was In 1888.
The ore netted about 812:> per ton
after all expenses had been paid. Of
course silver and lead were very high
at that time.
"There are 26 properties besides
those inuin'il whieh have more or less
development done upon them, and
they all show good values. We have
samples of the ore from eaeh.
"There is another tiling in eonneetion with the camp whieh is worth
mentioning, and that is that we have
the only Taylor air-system plant yet
iu successful operation. This is being
vised by several of the eompauies. In
the ease of the Highlander, Mr. Stevenson put in a plant of his own.
There were a Hume, a Pelton wheel
and a compressor, but the plant is
lying idle now. It was used for three
months, and then the power from this
Tayor air plant was used. Mr.Stevenson says it is cheaper by one-half.
The plant obtains its power from
Coffee Creek. Those photographs
whieh you see at the back there give
an idea of the Hume and the water
power. The air itself is much drier
than that obtained from an ordinary
compressor. For that reason it is very
desirable. "

William Jones, a miner, has just
arrived in Nelson from Erie. He is
greatly pleased with the mining con
ditions about that district and states
that much development work is being
done. He stated that on the Keystone
a shaft had been sunk 35 feet but
work had been stopped on this, and a
tunnel is being run to tap the vein
about 150 foot lower down. The tunnel will he about 300 feet. The lead
is five feet wide, and tho ore is similar to that taken from the Arlington
which adjoins the property. Men are
also engaged in building a wagon
road from that of the Arlington to
this property, a distance of two
miles. The road will be completed in
about two weeks. The assay from
the ore runs from S-4 to 800. This
property was bonded to Mr. Davenport of   Spokane a short   time ago for

VV. .T. Ilrown. who is connected
with the Republic Mining Company,
arrived in the city last evening. Mr.
Ilrown and his brother, Thomas
ilrown of Nelson,who is now in South
Africa, are interested in the No. 2.
and Cold Hill claim on 40-Creek,
adjoining the May and Jennie property. Mr. W. J. Ilrown has with him
some samples of ore from the property, whieh are of a high grade. On
the property a shaft has been sunk 3ii
feet and a vein of high grade ore has
been encountered. The vein averages
about five feet in width. Mr. Urown
stated that he was interesting Montreal capitalists in the property.
Mr. Brown says that the town of
Republic is one of the coining towns
of the eastern portion of the State of
Washington. The corporation is
about to install an electric light and
waterworks plant in the near future.
The mining companies of that district
are now wailing on the starting of
the Republic reduction mill and then
the development of the properties will
be carried ou in full force.
��� ���   ���
A sample of high grade ore taken
from the Ida A. claim which is sittiat-
ed'near Erie, was brought to Nelson
yesterday. The ore is free milling and
the gold Hakes can be easily seen.
Much development work has been
done on the property and a car of ore
lias been placed in the bins ready for
shipping. This will be sent to the
smelter in the near future. The main
lead has been discovered to be 111 feet
wide while there is a rich streak contained in it, which is about 14 inches
wide. Four men are engaged at the
property and they will continue work
all winter.

The (iorton Minstrel troupe drew a
large audience to the Opera House
last night. The performance was
hardly what had been promised by
the advance notices but there were
some portions of the programme
which were thoroughly enjoyable and
the evening was nol badly spent.
The company is woefully lacking in
vocal abilities. The band, however,
and the soloists therein are of a high
class und their numbers on the programme were loudly applauded. Hank
Goodman ami Jack Symonds were
good in their songs and comedy work
and the Rexford Hros. gave a splendid
acrobatic performance. While some
numbers on the programme arc tiresome, there is much about the show
from which enjoyment can be derived
and the company will probably lie
favored with another large house tonight.

the 18th and 10th, an advance notice
says; There are many operas, but to
present one in rag-time with colored
performers has heen left to the man
agement of "The Coontown 400." A
proof of the success may be quoted in
this the third successful season of this
famous colored aggregation. In all,
without exception.of the largest cities
where this attraction has appeared it
has been received with the greatest
enthusiasm, and departed with the
seal of well deserved success. There
are but few better known companies,
and none who arc welcomed more
heartily on their return visits than
this company. Mr. Willis the manager of this attraction, has gathered
around him only the best pei burners.
In every line of specially work the
aim has been quality and originality.
The chorus is featured as the .strongest
on the road. The costuming is magnificent and the music and effects he

selected with a view to beauty and

Everything   In   Readiness   Foi
Week's elaborate  Production.
Everything   is now in   readiness for
the   best   production of   comic  opera
ever given in the Interior of Hritish
Columbia and thOSO who are present
at the Opera House on Monday evening will undoubtedly agree that it is
the best. The Nelson Operatic Society
has spared neither time   DOT  expense
making preparations for an elaborate production and those taking part
have worked with an energy that cannot fail to result in a great artistic
sun-ess. The production Iiiib cost the
BOclety nearly a thousand dollars and
this large sum has been spent to provide the citizens of Nelson with an
entertainment that can be had here in
uo other way. No traveling company
could afford to bring fifty people to
Nelson, so if the citizens desire to see
such large productions they must rely on their own people. Only liberal
patronage will make it possible for
the society to present operas on the
scale that has been attempted with
"The Mikado" and if tlie patronage
is sufficiently  encouraging the public
may rest assured that the society will
continue to live up to the reputation
they made by "Pinafore" and will be
more tluin Hustaincd by "The Mikado." The rehearsals havo been surprisingly good and there can bo no
doubt as to the success. Costumes
and scenery are away ahead of anything ever seen here.
The sale of seats has been progressing favorably all week and a large.
number have been booked. However,
there are still many good scats for
both Monday and Tuesday evening remaining unsold.
The final rehearsal is being held

Ex Governor Mcintosh's Big Scheme
to Supply Vancouver.
Vancouver has the notion that with
a generous supply of electric power it
could become a great industrial centre. And it may be that it is right.
Some of its more wide awake men
have for several years had their eyes
on Stave Lake, a considerable body of
water lying easterly a distance of
thirty or forty miles. It has an elevation with falls down the river sufficient to generate 35,ODD or 411,0(1(1
horse power. Some time ago a company was formed for the purpose of
putting the great scheme of harnessing this power into effect, but for one
reason or another nothing came of it.
The people behind lacked the courage
to face it, or tlie amount of capital required was greater than they could
manage. This is the more surprising
because of the fact that local enterprise had the backing of San Francisco and Toronto capitalists. Although
in abeyance for a long time, the
scheme was never quite dead; but it
was dragging, and life in it could not
be much longer sustained. At this
critical period Mr. C. II. Mackintosh
stepped in. obtained control of the
charter, and is already busily engaged
on the preliminary steps necessary to
a successful issue of the scheme. The
general verdict will be that the enterprise has fallen into good hands.
If any man can make it go, Mr.Mackintosh can. His connection with th
Le Roi is the best evidence of that.
lie is a man of large schemes, and
does not know what failure is. Vancouver is to be congratulated on the
happy circumstance that induced him
to take up this one. and there will he
general regret that there are not more
like him in the Province. The citizens of Nelson are in sore need of electric devlopment, for power as well as
lighting. They believe that their city
could be made the greatest industrial
centre in the Province, for there is
]iower all around going to waste.
They would be fortunate if they could
get a Mackintosh to take up a scheme
similar to the Vancouver one.
; St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 13.���Russell
Sage, of New York, among others, is
seeking to recover money on railway
aid bonds issued by the village of
Reeds, Wabash County. The supreme
court of this stato has declared that
the village lost its corporate assistance through changes in the charter
in 1895. Ponds had been issued by
tlie village in order to secure an extension of the Hastings and Dakota
Railway. When the bonds became
due they were not paid because there
WEB no village in existence responsible for the obligations. Finding no
village to sue. the bondholders have
commenced action against the township were   Heed's citizens live.

Baby Ellie Beauohamp has been
heard from again says The Spokane
Many Spokane folks will   remember
Jesse   Beauchamp- the   si rang m
who arrived in this olty I wo vearsago
and predicted the birth of a wonderful
prophet in his household. Just before
Christmas the prophet arrived but to
Jesse's surprise she was a baby girl.
Even that did not dl,hearten her
father: and when he lefl Spokane, a
few weeks later, and went to Montana, he was still predicting wonderful
things that would follow the birth i f
the child.
Now she has been heard from agiin
-this time in Butte, Yeste:day's
Standard tells of a pi lamation 'issued hy E. Siinington her guardian���
though what has bocome of her father
ami mother is not stilted. The standard says:
"Elite llcauchamp was horn , n November II. 1808, al Spokane. The
claim was made that when only a
lew days old she talked at tines and
uttered words of wisdom and gave
prophesies.   One prophecy was that in
00 weeks from the date of  her birth
the world would begin to he nfflioted
with terrible plagues, to come successively and seven in number, and
there would be terrors untold on
earth. Ihese 00 weeks expire on October 111. and the terrors arc to begin
then, according to the prophecy.''
Slmlngton's proc
as follows:        !
"Remember the dale���November II.

Diphtheria in the Horse.���A little
girl having fallen ill of diphtheria,
the doctor in seeking the source of infection, found thatJJJthe child's pony
was also ill, witli a purulent and
slightly foetid discbarge from the nostrils. Tho ponyS wus watched, and
later developed enlarged glands under
the tongue, and its breathing became
labored and stertorous. It was killed,
and a bacteriological examination
made of some or its nr.sal mucus by
Dr. Louis Cobhett of the patological
laboratory at. Cambi idgc. He succeeded in isolating a bacillus in every respect identical with tlie ordinary
diphtheria bacillus. It was fatal to
guinea pigs, and���the effects of infecting large doses of cultures made from
it were completely neutralized by
diphtheria anti-toxin. The germ
was undoubtedly a true diphtheria bacillus,"and we may safely conclude,"
says Dr.Cobhett. "that the horse suffers from diphtheria." The discovery
is of considerable scientific interest
in its bearing on the origin of the
anti-toxins. The presence in some
horses, which have not been artificially immunized, of diphtheria antitoxin has hitherto puzzled pathologists.
This is now easily explained by the
previous occurrence in the animal of a
true diphtheria,and the natural formation of the antitoxin in consequence.
An attack was lately made on C. F,
Collier of Cherokee, Iowa, that nearly
proved fatal. It came through his
kidneys. His back got so lame he
could not stoop without great pain,
nor sit in a chair except propped by
cushions. No*reincdy helped him until he tried Electric Hitters whloh
effected such a?W0nderfu1 change that
he writes he feels like a new man
