London Sept.. H.���The week was
prolific of discussion, Bul the main
questions of International and national interesl. while they appear to
he profiling by tho general desire for
peace, which remains tlie strongost
factor of international polities, and
appear to be approaching a solution,
have not yol reached the point of lin-
ality which Great Britain so earnestly desired in order that she may attend to her private concerns,
Among the latter, stand out most
prominently the South African question and the general elections. By
the help of the desire i'or peace dominating all nations, Great Britain has
heen enabled to achieve without hindrance the formal annexation of
South Afrielan Republics. Lord Roberts "Proclamation," however, has
not advanced matters much.
In spite of the disconcerting persistence of ihe Burghers, the British Government apparently has determined to
carry out the Hellenic lor an early appeal to ihe country, biverything appears to he shaping for an October
election and the return to Knglniul of
Lord Salisbury during the coming
week will probably speedily be followed hy n definite announcement of the
date of tlie dissolution as well as'Brit,,
ish views on far eastern matters,
Among tlie interest ing features of tlie
election news is the movement on the
purt ofthe Liberal Unionists to return to the Liberal fold and to he
again what Sir Wm. Vernon Hat-court
described himself to he in liis speech
of September I, "Liberal without
any adjectives. "
Mr. Anthony Hope Hawkins, the
novelist, is again a candidate for a
seat in Parliament. Uo has been

"I never knew so many improvident
Americans in London.'' said I'nited
States Vice Consul Westcote to a representative of the Associated Press.
"At tills time of the year you are sure
to find many who have taxed their
financial resources. But the supplications for relief here outnumber anything ill the history of the Consulate.
Of course there are no means in our
hands to finance stranded travellers,

since have been expended, Guests at
the leading hotels say they cannot go

New Vork. Sept. s,��� A solution of
the Chinese question which would
have been popular In England would
have heen the adoption by the Anicr-
icn tIovernment of a punitive policy
enforced  by the   employment   of an
army of 35,000 Or 30,000 troops, says
the London correspondent of The Tribune. The British Government would
have followed the lead of the American State Department and would have
largely increased its own military
forces iu China for the purpose of securing the punishment of the guilty
mandarins, the dethronement of the
[impress Dowager and the reorganization of the imperial Government.
since tho state Department has not
taken this course, the Foreign Office
here has adopted it policy of masterly
Inactivity and has, bocn prepared to
acquiesce in nny arrangements which
may he made hy Russia and tlermany.

scheme outright hut has reduced it i"

tlie European, Japanese an'1 Ainerl
cun forces, so tbat Count Von IValdorsee
will have ai least a small International force to command   and  some j
thing to do which will be dignified
and conspicuous, It may be safely assumed that the liritisli Foreign olllee
will assent to any policy which secures a general agrecinciil of the Powers and obviates the necessity for u
partition of China,

Yacht cluh. many of the members
were astir preparing for the race for

boats and at 0:15 the Minota swung
into the centre of the river, her sails
were set and she glided gracefully
up the river n short distance, putting
out ou the lake. The (lenessee followed soon after. At 0 o'clock the

sailed closer to the course than Davis,
At 11 :40 a. in., on the second leg of
the lirst tack, the Minota was well in
the lead, but tlle Geueaseo being lo
windward was picking^ up.   At   i n
it was difficult to distinguish the po-
sitiolls. because of Ihe distance and

mining is in a more healthy condi-

Kootenay only the most encouraging

One Objection to the Use   of Wireless
Telegraphy is Iteing Overcome.
The ditlieulty of sending messages by
wireless telegraphy whieli shall not be
legible by the whole world seems to
have beau solved by a most ingenious
device presented hy M. Tommasi to
Academie des Science at its meeting
of last ween. He uses at tbe sending
station not one but two transmitters.
One of these transmits the real despatch by the usual code, while the
other sends only a series of meaning-
lets tlots anil dashes produced by a
mechanical process. The range of thiB
last transmitter is kept always rather
less than the other, so that at the
receiving station only the code signals will be reeeived. If, however,
au attempt be made to intercept the
signals by means of a receiver interposed between the sending and receiving
stations, both the real message and
the meaningless clicks will appear together, with the result that the message will be utterly intelligible. This
must be almost as irritating to the
would-be " tapper " as Lord Wolseley's
plan of splicing a piece of blind wire
(that is, insulating material with no
metallic core) at intervals between
the posts of an enemy's telegraph, lie
says tbiH is much more effective than
the ordinary plan of cutting the wire
merely, because in that case, when
he recovers the line, the enemy knows
where the break is c . has only to
repair it. Ity his plan the owner of
the line has to test from post to post
to discover and eliminate the obtsrUC-

The Qranby Company's smelter
was blown in on the morning of the
-1st ulto., and since then it has been
running without a bitch, using one
furnace of a nominal daily capacity
of 250 tons but actually treating' more
than HOo tons per diem. A second
furnace of like capacity will probably
be started in the course of a few days
and thereafter, with about 4,000 tons
of ltouudary ores being treated
weekly at this smelter alone,and with
returns giving a. fair margin of profit,
it should not take long to amply demonstrate that mining in the ltouudary
is a paying industry.
Pending the receipt of the machinery and plant for the (Ireenwood smel-
ter matters appear to the casual observer to be at a standstill at this establishment, but Huch is certainly not
the case. About the same number of
men are on the payroll as for weeks
past, and these are fully employed in
putting in a dam and laying pipes for
water supply, in erecting the furnace
and in preparing the laboratory for
its important part in connection with
smelting operations. Next month's review will nojloubt include a report of
further substantial progress towards
the final completion and equipment of
these works.
A site near Boundary Falls having
been secured for the Standard l'yritic
Smelting Company's pyritic smelter,
the necessary surveys have been made
and levels taken and a profile of the
ground accompanied by the data requisite for tlle preparation of tlic
plans for buildings, foundations, etc.,
has been sent to the manufacturers of
the smelter furnace and plant at Denver, Colorado. Immediately after receipt of these plans the work of
construction will be pushed on with.
Meanwhile the managing director,
Mr. Andrew Laidlaw, is arranging
all other preliminaries so that there
maybe no unnecessary delay in erecting and equipping this smelter.

There was once a man who bad
Money to Bum and he came West
for lie knew that he would
find many Hot Wans lu that Place to
help him burn ll. He was what they
call a Mark. When he arrived In the
West he told all the Crowd his Krrand
and they Winked their Kyes at Knch
other ami began to talk Loudly about
tbeir Claims. After some Days be
went to tlle Hill and Bought a Mine
for much Money because tlle Pros"
pector said it was a Good Mine. Then
the Hoys smiled Behind tlieir Hands
because the Pilgrim had a Wilde I.
Then the Man began to Mine and
made a Strike and his mine made 1)1 r
ideiids for him. And the Prospector
was the Chump after All. A Fool and
his Money are not Always easily Di-
