Ottawa, Sept. 20.���The Duke anil
Duchess of Cornwall reached the Capital today and there was another great
outsp'inniug of people to give tbem a

left Montreal in tbeir special train nt
9 o'clock In the morning, and their

ileraonUttallon of popular regard.
Thoy left from the Windsor streel

Btreets in that section open to trallic.
A tioop ol Hussars surrounded the
briskly drivon carriage and their departure from the home of Lord tSrath-

volume, extended to tlio depot. The
railroad track was lined with people
far beyond the suburbs of Montreal
uml down through tho Province of
Quebec and into the Province of
Ontario, the people gathered at every
way station and crossing to natch a
glimpse of the Royal couple as thoy
spoeded past.
The train pulled up Rt tho town of
Alexandria lung enough for the
officials to express a few words of welcome. The Duke and Duchess apperer'
on Urn plat form for a moment and the
former acknowledged tho kindly expressions.
The Royal special reached Ottawa at
12.15 ad the Duko, attired in hie favorite uniform of admiral of the
Hritish Navy, alighted at oneo, accompanied by the Duchess and the members of his staff. Thoy were formerly

their young voices to strains of "Ood
Save the King. " The party then left

Cornwall team. The Duke placed the

asked fur the ball with which the
game was played.

Vancouver, Ii. C, Sept. _0.--The
rumor that an eastern American syndicate in which J. J. Hill ia interested
is negotiating for all the export lumber mills and timber limits in British
Columbia will not bo downed in spite
of the denial of some of the mill
managers. The reason the public believe that tho report is oorrect is bo-
cause two out of the nine or ten.
expert mill managers have declared
that contra propositions have been
made by tho syndicate and the mill
owners, and because Government
olllcials who should certainly be on
the inside, have declared that the
deal is on. Tho majority of mill
owneis however, persistently deny it.
In comparison to many of J. .1. Hill's
enterprises the proposition is a smal'
affair which does not involve an expenditure of over (1800,000. Although
there are HI mills of all descriptions
in Hritish Columbia there are but ten
mills exporting lumber as follows:
Brunette Saw mills, timber leasos,
20,5117 acres; Moodyville Lands & Saw
mills Company, timber leaaeB, 16,091

Important Conference Yesterday Between Leaders of
the Two Countries.
Compiegnie, Prance, Sept. 20.���
Emperor Nicholas exorcised the prerogative of an autocrat and kept
President Loubet and nit tho French
occupants of Hie Chateau Compiegnie
marking time the whole morning
until be had signiliod bis desires, It
was fully expected that be would
drive to Pierriefonds and visit the
Castle and afterwards he would go
shooting in the great paik attacbed to
Chateau Compiegnie. All arrangements had been made and 500
pheasants were brought specially last
evening and let loose in the covers.
But he did nothing of tho kind. His
Majesty remained in his apartments
after breakfast quietly until 10 o'clock
when be took' a short promenade iu
the gardens attired in a dark lounge
suit and top boots with tlie Czarina,
clad in her invariable half mourning
and followed by a houud. The Empress carried her camera with which
she took a number of views. After
retnr- ing to the chateau the Emperor
had a long interview wilh M.Waldeck
Rosseau, the French Premier. It
lasted at least two hours. Count Lams*
dcrir, the Russian Foreign Minister,
also conferred with M Ueloasse, the
French minister of foreign affairs.
Naturally what took place has not
teen divulged but it is whispered that
the principal subject of the two interviews was the commercial relations
between Franoe and Russia.
After giving it to oe understood
that he would nrrivo at |Pierrefonds
the Czar left the chateau with Czarina
iu a Victoria at 8 o'clock with no
escort, except a. few detectives on
bicycles who kept in the background,
thus giving him the illusion of a private drive and the life of an ordinary
mortal. Measures were taken within
the paik, however, that absolutely
precluded the chances of any danger.
The Emperor wore the undress uniform of the Provbrajenski legimont.
He changed Ills route quite unexpectedly, and instead of proceeding to
Pierriofonds took a short drive to the
village of IJeaumonts,returning to the
Chateau Compiegnie at 5 o'clock.
The crowning feature of the day's
events was the gala appearance in the
Chateau theatre, which followed a
banquet in the familiar ball of the
columns At the close of the entertainment ahout eleven of the leading
actors aud actresses were piesented to
the Empeior, who^ congratulated
them upon the manner in which they
had played their roles. The Czar and
Czarina took their leavo of President
and Mme. Loubet and retired to their
apartments immediately after the conclusion of the performance as all must
rise early tomorrow in order to
leave by tho 8 o'clock train for the
review at Bethany. The review will
be followed by a luncheon at which
lhe political announcement, for wbisb
all France is eagerly waiting, will be
mado. The Russian sovorigns will

Miners Now Turning Their
Attention to Dry Ores.
Mining News.
William Hunter, of the Willian
Hunter Company, which ban stores at
Nelson, Silverton, Three Forks, Alamo
and Pheonix, is at tbe Phair. During
a chat bad with him last evening be
stated thnt there waB a distinct
change for the better in mining in
tbe Slocan. in the early days the desire was to Becure claims which ran
high in lead. But with the fall in
load dry ore properties were located
and operated and now qnite a number
of them are yielding profitable returns It takes three tons of dry ore
to reduce one ton of wet or lead ore
aud as a consequence of this there is
a growing demand for dry ores. Tho
smelter charge for reducing dry oro is
much less than i. is for wet ore, and
as a consequence the proiit to the mine
owner is greater on dry ore than it is
on lead oies, now Hint the price of
lead is dowu. The mining of tbe dry
ore is of great advantage to the smelters as it enables them to reduce the
wet oiea. The operation of these dry
ore properties together with the woik
that is being done on the silver-lead or
wet ore mines of the higher grade, the
owners of which are adapting themselves to the changed connitions, is
resulting In enlarging the number of
mines which are being operated and
this is fast restoring the Slocan to
something like the old prosperity
which existed before the price of lead
tumbled, A combination of circumstances which included the slump in
lead and labor troubles produced a
dullness in Slocan and for a time
everything seemed to be going from
bad to worse, but now there is a moie
hopeful feeling and the mine owners
are all busy and this is making a
change for the better in business.
At Silverton the Hewitt is Bhipping
steadily st about the rate of 15 tons
per day. On the Emily Edith a small
force is engaged in development work
and among the possible additions
talked of is a concentrator. Work is
also progressing on several smaller
properties in the Silverton camp.
Around New Denver the Bosun, the
Hartney and the Marion are boing
At Alamo the Idaho aud some other
properties are being developed.
At Three Forks tbe Monitor and
some smalkir properties are bring energetically developed.
Around Sandon the mines are being
operated. "The outlook in the Slocau
is brightening very muoh and we believe in tii'.'o tbat tbe section will be
more prosperous than it cfer has been
in its history, " concluded Mr.Hunter.
W. F Dubois, manager of the
Alrington mine near Slocan City, in
at tho Phair, and reports that mat win
are in full swing at the mine. Tho
output is about 30 tuns a day, which
is being sent to the Nelson smelter.
He reports that operations aro to be
commenced on the Republic property,
which is located a short distance from
tho Arlington. A syndicate, rcpie-
sonted __ Charles Dempster of Rosslaud, haa acquired tbe Republic and
iiitmids to spend considerable money
in its development. Campbell-Johnston of this city is to be tbe engineer
for the syndicate.
J. L. Stamford, managing dirootor
of the Riiystnii Oold Mines, reports

Important   Ruling Made By Iho Court
Yesterday, *���*��
Washington, D. C, Sept. 2il.���The
Schley court ol enquiry reconvened
today and beforo adjournment examined four witnesses. The most important incident of tho day was the
decision of tne court withdrawing a
question put by the OOUl't itself asking
a witness to give his opinion concerning a point in controversy, The witness was Rear Admiral Hlgginson
who participated in tho Santiago
campaign as captain of tho battleship
Massachusetts.. This vessel at the
time was a part of tho flying squadron
commanded by Commodore Schley
and the court asked bim to state
whether all possible measures weie
taken to capture or destroy the Spanish vessel Cristobal Colon, as she lay
in Santiago harbor from Muy 37 to
Juno 1, 1800.
Counsel for Admiral Schley objected
to the question on the ground that a
reply would involve an opinion and
not a statement of facts. Judge Advocate Lemley admitted that tlio precedents were against questions of this
Character aud the court withdrew this
interrogation. It ia generally admitted tbat tbis decision will have the
effect of materially shortening tlie
term of the court as will also tho
court's manifest intention to cut out
irrelevant questions and all hearsay
testimony. In several cases tbe witnesses were admonished to re'ate only
events coining within thoir own oh
servation. Admiral Dewey showed
himself a prompt and methodical
presiding officer. Tbe witnesses taday
were Rear Admiral Hlgginson, who
commanded the battlesh p Massachusetts, during the Spanish war; Captain Chester, who commanded the
cruiser Cineinnatti; Major Wood of
the marine corps, who commanded
the marines on the Massachusetts; and
Commander C. II. Harbor, who waB
the executive ollicor of the Texas, the
latter boing on tho stand when the
court adjourned.
Vancouver, B. C, Sept. 20.--A

anarchist in Des Moines, Iowa, purporting to benr on the President's
assassination, reached here through

by a man in Los Angeles, California,

Members of the Legislature
Going io Victoria to Discuss lhe Situation.
Overtures to Helmcken From
the Premier Proved to Be
of no Avail.
Victoria, 11. (.., .Supt. 2".���Another
day Im-, passed prnctically without
change in the political situation.
Hrown came uver from the Mainland
last night, out lie has nut yet banded
in hia resignation to the Premier. It
is probable that he will do so shortly.
The overtures made by tho cabinet
yesterday to Heliiieken with a view to
his going iiiiu tim administration
seem to have hi en (utile and the Premier, through his organ now denies
that thoy wero ever made. Helmcken
remained closeted with the Premier
tor some time yesterday afternoon,
but last niglu declned to disclose the
nature of the negotiations which passed between him uml the first ministei.
On one point, however, lie was positive anil frank When asked if he
would join thc administration of
Dunsmuir he replied emphatically,
It is evident therefore, that the
(Jovernnient cannot look in its extremity to that section of the (Iovernment members, of which Helmcken is
a representative, for any assistance
R. F, Green is expected to reach the
city tonight, but as a strong friend of
Mcllride he is more likely to cast in
nis lot with that gentleman than with
tne government. Taylor is also expected to arrive this eveuiug. Last
night's boar, brought Wells, Hrown,
MoBride and Curtis. It is not unlikely
that the Premier will call his quondam supporters together shortly and
pluce himself in their hands. On the
oher hand he may resign without calling the party logethor.

The Nelson Liberal Association   has
declared   itself   in   favor   of   Federal
party    lines   in   the   next   Provincal
elections and lias directed   a   oommit-
toe to prepare a circular letter   to  be
sent to the other organizations   of the
party in tin* Province,requesting their
co-operation in   securing   the   desired
ohjeot. There are a good many reasons
which   oould   be   urged    in     favor ot
party politics to take tbe   place of the
non-partisan system   now   in   vogue.
Then,    too,    party   polities   could   be
tried for a season   and   if   not   found
satisfactory a return could be made to
the present method.   The oustom   now
in   use   sends   representatives  to   the
legislature   who.   while   pledged to a
certain   extent   to  their constituents,
are now strictly hound by   party   ties
and   the result is   that   they do about
as they please when in thc/legislatnre,
whicli has boen the theatre for a good
many changes in attitude   and   policy
on the part of the   members.    A   poll
of the liouse mado a few days finco by
prominent politicians   showed that   it
hail 10 oppositionists,   14   government
supporers and 1 members of  doubtful
political gender.   Under party politics
there would be less in the latter class
and the nominees  of the Liberal   and
Conservatives paitios would be subject
to     party   discipline   and   be   under
moral   obligation   to   carry   out   the
party policy as embodied in the   plat-
forniB or be guilty  of   political   apos-
tacy.    When members are under party
domination and  elected   to carry  out
party   tenets   it   would increase their
responsibility and result in ministries
that would last and ilo away with the
unsatisfactory   and   unsettled state of
affairs that has prevailed   for tiie past
tbiee years.     It   is   believed   that   it
would be impossible to  duplicatu   the
same condition that now is   in   existence at the capital under the partizan
plan.    Once permanency and responsibility replaces uncertainty   and   irresponsibility at Victoria it   would go a
long   way   iu   tho direction of restoring   confidence   both   at    home    ana
abroad.      Under   present    conditions
publ:c affairs whicli require ntttention
are   neglected, as   the   quarrels    and
rivalnos of the ''ins" and tha "outs"
occupy   so   much   of thc   timo of  our
public men tbat they cannot   pioperly
attend to their official duties.     Under
the   party   system     the    delinquents
would   be   held   strictly   accountable
and there would therefore bo closer attention paid to the interests and affairs
of the   public.    The frequent changes
of   government  and   the putting into
effect of new policies by each new but
short-lived   ministry   in     regard    to
mining and other interests   has had a
baneful   effect    and if party   politics
will   give   a   stable   government   for
a   reasonable   length   of   time with a
fixed and helpful policy the Hooner we
can secure   its   benelioent   effects   the
better.    Even at its worst it should be
an improvement on what   we have   at

dollars runs up high when so ma;
tons of ore are taken into consideration The smolter can treat Sa ore at
a profit, [as is now well known generally. Mr. Williams said the Kncb
Ilill ore would run, according to the
exhaustive tests he had made, $8.3?
per ton. Call the averago Ss per ton,
and we have the Granby Co. treating
ore each year to the value uf $8,604,000
ur in 50 yearB to the vaiue of 3175,-
01)0,000. Another thing not to be lost
sigbl of is the fact that there are
immense oro reserves that have not
been taken into consideration at ail-
below the .100-foot level
Whore   can one go   and   find   laiger1
bodies of gold-copper ore   than these?
The editor cf the Phoenix Pioneer
got uut his pencil the other day and
began to figure uut tlie amount of ore
and its value in tint Knob Hill and
Old Ironsides. Among other things
he stuted that a couple uf months
sinco the underground workings of
the Knob Hill and Old lionsides,
adjoining mines, were connected in
ore, and he who cares to do so, can
go underground fo.- a distance of
11,000 feet in one direction and still
never be out of an ore body. This had
beon crosscut in a number of places
for varying distances of from -'00 to 4"iD
feet and it is certain tbat tlie body is
that wido. This is at tlie 300 foot
level of the Old Ironsides. Tho sume
level on the Kuub Hill would give a
much greater depth ot ore for the hill
rises appreciably on the Knob Hill.
Hy tht* aid of a diamond drill the ore
lias been proven to a depth of quite
1,000 feet, but we will leave that out
of the question and will unly figure
frurn the :i()0*foot level. An ore body
;i,000 feet long, by :i(K) feet wide, by
:iuo feet depth will give exactly 270,-
000,000 oublO feet of metalliferous
rock. The ore of the Knob Hill will
run about even cubic feet to the ton,
but to continue tbe conservative
86tlmat6, WO will allow at the rale of
10 cubic toet to the ton. If tbo smelter

The  cares   of  office during the last
two or three years have borne heavily
on Lord Salisbury and   there   is probably truth in the   report   that   he   is
shortly   to retire  from the leadership
of his party ana from publio   life.    It
is stated that the dato  of  his   retirement   will   be immediately ufter   the
coronation   of the King   and   that  in
recognition of his able services   he   is
to be given a Dukeaom.      Lord tjalis-
buiy is a little over  70  years   of   age
and   is  a young man   for   his   years,
being vigorous  and   active.      He   has
had a long, useful and brilliant career
in public   life.     He   was born in 1830
aud was the second   son   of the   Marques of Salisbury.     His elder brother
died   and   he succeeded to the title un
the death of liis father   in ISliS, when
he was 38 years of  age.     For   nearly
15   years he   was   a   member   of   the
house of commons and while   there lie
beoame   so   prominent   that   he   was
given tbo important  post of Secretary
for Indiu during Lord Derby's administration in 1800-7.     It  was   in   1873
that he entered   Disraeli's cabinet  as
Secretary   for   India   for   the  second
time.    Ho was sent to Constantinople
as the representative of (Ireat   Britain
ut   tlie conference  of   tbo   powers  ou
the Eastern question in 1878,      In tlie
same  year   he became   foreign   secretary.     Shortly   alter   this he accompanied Lord UeaconsiieUl   to   the Congress of Berlin.     It   was on tlie death
of Lord Ileaconslield in 1887 that Lord
Salisbury succeeded   to the  Conseiva-
tivo leadership, which he has retained
ever since because   of  overshadowing
ability.    Sinco then ho has been three
times Premier of the Empire.    During
much of tho time of   his   premiership
he also filled   he position   of   Foreign
Secretary.    Lord Salisbury has shown
such signal ability aud such   a capacity for work as Premier   that   it   will
be difficult to   Und a  man   who   will
cany ou tho affairs   of the office with
such wisdom and vigor as ho has,   but
he has reachod tho age when he   must
lay   down   the heavier burdens of life
so that tbey may be borne on younger
shoulders, and   the peoplo of   llritain
may   well say   to him,    "Well   done,
good   und   faithful   servant,'' and no
honor Unit may be   given him by   the
King   or   Parliament   will   be   more
than bo deserves.
medical profession who have made
a special study of the alcohol question
seem to be agreed on two points:
First, that fermented liquors (beers
ana wines) are much less injurious
than distilled (spirits.) Second, that
men who have reached the age of
forty years and have been essentially
moderate should not become abstainers. Their organs get used to the
stimulant, and will seriously miss it
ou its witlidiawal. It is not possible
that in tlio future a third principle
may be appended to these���viz. : that
moderation is better than teetotalism.
Tho professors of the latter claim that
they live longer than others, and no
doubt rightly; but others include the
drunkards, a numerous class, and
those who habitually oxceed somewhat, a still more numerous class. It
is beginning to be suspected by later
statisticians that if the lives of total
abstainers could fairy be compared
with moderate drinkers only they
would not bo seen to be the bettor of
the two groups.

Cdtniiiutitiiig if- tho Opl-lflfl Of l'i of,
(ieorge F. Decker of the tl, S. lloologie
Survey, that the Tranavaal could pro-
,'liico gold at the rate of .100,000,000 a
year for the noxt thirty years, Mr. C.
\v. 1'urrington, who has travelled in
Hibeiia aud examined seine mining
propositions there, says in the Engineering Magazine for September tbat,
in his opinion, providing American
niacbinerv and gold mining methods
were installed, Siberiu would produced 8200,000,000 a year for thirty years.
The raise is mado easily on paper.
As a statement to Influence business
judgment and the investment of capital in Siberian mines, it is mischievous and utterly unwarranted by any
development! of quunity of gold in
place yet made. 'i'ho opinion was
more likely horn of the inspiration of
Russian hospitality than from the observation which one man could make ]
of mines scatteied over a territory of
several million square miles.
There is a very lar.e area in Siberia
that contains niinablo gold deposits���
a far larger area undoubtedly than
lias even been explored. It is a much
different area than that shown on tho
map of Siberia which accompanies
the statement of Mr. Purrington's
observations in the Engineering
Magazine. Areas which are uot indicated ub gold bearing are on the con-
rar.v fairly rich in gold. Areas which
are indicated as gold bearing are not
gold bearing. Tlio writer makes these
statements fiom his personal observa*
Hon and knowledge.
Siberia is a land of magnificent
distances. Magnificent distances separating the plucer deposits from each
other and the lode discoveries already
made are even wider apart. There is
nu such concentration of rich deposits
as exist in the United States. The
gold is thinly spread ill Siberia in a
way compensating for its wide area of
distribution. There aro very rich
placers���none, however, richer than
California placers liavo been. There
urn rich quartz veins and these are
virgin giound lor the minors They
are. however, tho typo of geld quartz
veins characteristic of California.
That is, so far as known. It is perfectly possible for counterparts of
Cripple Creek to be yet undiscovered
but until thoy are estimates of yield
are as unsubstantial as dreams.
The so-called placers of Siboria can
not bo worked as cheaply or expeditiously as similar ground in California, The idea of developing a $::<><),-
000,01*0 a year production oui of gold-
beaiing quartz veins of the California
typo only needs statement to be rejected. Fifly years of qnarlz mining in Califbrnin has never made over
.10,000,000 of gold from quartz in any
Siberia has excellent possibilities
for the u-io of American machinery.
It has more opportunities than it has
the linancial resources to buy the
machinery with. The Siberians aro
good placer miners. They can be
taught quartz raining They should
be encouraged by the hope ot profit to
buy American mining machinery.
The fact is Sibeiia is not much unlike the Yukon and Nome regions of
Alaska in its mines. It is no bettor
because a great deal bigger. Absurd

Once there was a sentimental Totty
who told the Girl Friends all about
her kind uf Man. She said she would
drop the Flag ou all Farmers. If she
couldn't get some one in tbo Scratch
Division sho would do without.
''The Man who wins my cardiacal
Regard must be Tall and Dark, with
Unveil Hair tossed back from a Brow
of Alabaster Whiteness," she said, as
she reached for another Olive, "lie
must be Brave, yet Ocutla. 1 would
have him a Chesterfield as to Manners
and as Bright as Winston Churchill,
In Thought and Speech he must be as
pure and unsullied as any Young
Lady in Ocean Grove, N. .1. Withal
he is to be Strong and Manly. He
who would hold down my Rocking
Chair must be a Chivalrous Gentle*
man, and don't youjforget it."
That evening a Red-Haired Hoy
wearing stipeil Flannels aid smoking
a Hull Dog Pipe came to the Front
(late and Whistled. She upset four
Flower Pots in getting to him.

Daviaux was fined $Ii) and costs for

up for bearing before County Court
Judge Forin on September Mth. Mr.

language used.
And Proved the Propsoition,
"I wish to give my experinnco with
colTee for the benefit of other people.
I used colfee for seveial years nnd
was a terrible sufferer from dyspepsia. The doctor told mc not to use
coil'ee or tea and put mc on a light
diet, and I felt better.
Then I commenced to drink coffee
again and had the same trouble come
Ono day I told a friend about It,
who said if I would stop drinking
coffee altogether 1 would feel hotter,
and advised me to use Postnm Food
Colfee in its place.
I tried the Postum but did not like
it, so I told him about it and he said
I didn't cook it right, that is, didn't
boll it enough and that I should use
nream instead of milk, and to make
sure I would use it, he sent a package
to thc house
After I used that pacakge, I would
have no more CO Bee in the house
Now I don't know what it is to havo
dyspepsia and I can eat anything. I
also give I'ostum to my twj children
und they are thu healthiest children
you could find anyWhere. The youngest is a boy l'l months old and wo
have been giving him Postum tor
seven months, three times a day. He
weighs 30 pounds, and I know that
I'ostum is what keeps both of them
so healthy.
I think all people who have dyspepsia get it from Ooffee drinking.

Opposito tbe Castle brewery in the
Hume Addtion is u sidewalk that at
present is a menace to public safety.
It is a single pliiik walk und terminates in a board hanging over a
gulch with a muddy creek al the but*
tool. On a dark night, with no street
light anywhere near,tlio pas&erby who
is unacqulnted with tbe locality la
almost certain to "v.alk the plunk' in
a fashion far frcm pleasant. There iH
a path leading down to tlie roadway
about Iifty feet from the end of the
walk,  but ut night it is invisiblo.
Yesterday morning tbe driver of
McFarland Sr. Broukman's delivery
van went to turn tho wagon in the
Une between Mill and Carbonate
streets Immediately east of Josephine.
The lane was narrow and steep and
the wagon upset, roiling completely
over and startling the horse whicli
bolted. lie made his way out to
Josephine and dewn to Baker turning
to tlie east and finally being brought
to a standstill in front of tlie Tremont
hotel. Both horse and rig suffered
considerable damage, the wagon being
totally wiecked and the horse receiving an ugly gush.
When the runaway occurred on Josephine   street   yesterday   morning, the
noise   made by   the horse's wild   progress down   the   hill   started   several
other horses.    One of these, belonging
to C.   Jell's,     followed   McFailand   Sc
BrOclcman's   wagon   down   Josephine
and     around     the   corner   of   linker
The   driver,    however,    was   able    to,
catch up and climb on the wagon   be*!
fore it acquired very   much speed and j
checked the horse   before   any damage i
was done.     A laundry delivery wagon
horse   also   joined   in the   procession
down Josephine stroet, tile whole giving a good representation of a chariot
Hmlilai notion  claiming  gao,000 and
an Injunction.
This makes four actions euterod
against the unions iuoluding that of
the Bosslund-Oreat Western Mines,
Limited. Messrs. Daly & Hamilton
represent tho Rossland (Ireat Western

Centre Star and War Eagle. Messrs.
Taylor Sr. Hannington, of Nelson, represent each and all of the defendants
in all the actions. The cases will
probuhly come up for trial ut Rossland
in December, These actions involve
all the new features of litigation respecting trades' unions with regard to
wbloh the privy council bas recently
given two Important decisions, each
of which has been in favor of the
unions. The supreme oourt at Ottawa
hus also lately given a judgment in
favor of the union, with regard to a
strike in the oity of Montreal, wheio
the union were sued for interfering
with men entering tlie employ of the
company affected by tbe strike.
There is also a recent decision by the
House of Lords which is unfavorable
to the unions.

A     Decidedly     Convenient
Invented iu Japan
Vancouvei-, 11. C, Set. 20.���The
following mail adivces weio received
by the Steamship Empress of India:
A new Buddhist seot has beon founded
in Japan by Mr. Nlshida Kakyo, who
calls himself A-Um-I'ara-Pa, and has
his headquarters in the suburbs of
Tokyo. Mr. Kakyo has reduced ie
ligion to a very practical, and coin
meicial basis. The basic idea is thut
as Heaven requires to be importuned
and as busy folks have not time themselves to do the importuning their
plan is to trust the task to one of the
new fold, for a cousnleraton of course.
The ono who prays, it is stipulated
must have quulictlations for successful
intercession with heaven, and it is
given out that A-Uml'ara-Pa has
direct access to the ear of all beings
capable of deciding man's fate. Sup-
plients asking for the new disciples
prayers often have to wait until the
latest religious fakir is through interviewing some delied Japanese Spirit.
Mr. Kakyo, who 6ome littlo time ago
was in trouble with the police for
fraud in connection with a lailroad

The survey of the Pacific cable to
oouuect British Columbia with the
Antipodes has been completed. Some
time ugo II. M. Burvey ship Egeriu
raudo soundings between Victoria and
Funning Isiund where tho first landing will be made. The oable steamer
Britannia has just completed the
soundings between Fanning Is'anil
and Australia. The Britannia left
Audi luuii several months ago and took
soundings to Suva, Fiji, and between
there and Fanning she took 184 soundings. A cable hotiao was built on
Fanning island. The work of laying
the cablo will commence in January,
the longest stretch will be from Victoria to Fanning island a distance of
8,800 miles and costing $700 a mile.
A special ship is being built to lay
th calbe. Over the whoilc course the
bottom was found to have an average
depth o a.bOO fathoms with ono range
of submarino mountains whicli came
within TUU feet of the surface near
Norfolk Island.
Major Oeneral Corbin returning
from a tour of inspection iu the
l'hillipinos was a passenger on the
Steamship Empress of India. He said
that subjugation of the islands had ut
length beon atfoeted. He and his
party were able to ttavel anywhere
without resource to arms, but the resources of tho Philippines were in a
very undeveloped condition, and the
people now inhabiting the islands do
not seem competent to dovolop them.
The population is ten millions but
the islands would support four times
that many people. Japanese immigration seems to be the remedy. The
Chinese were not desirable as they
think only of what they can tnke
away from the land of their adoption.
The Japanese have a strong racial
affinity with the inhabitants, and got
along well with them. In tbe next
session of the congress no doubt a bill
will be introduced for the administration of the I'hillipines and the oi 11
will piobably contain privileges for
Immigrants Among the ten million
inhabitants there are St) different
dialects. The American Ooveinment
sees tha Importance of remedying
such a state of affairs and Is establishing schools everywhere to teach
thu English language.

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
_ Our New Idci Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases thc heating capacity of the stove, and in connection with the deflector ring forces the
heat to thc floor. The base is hot, thc floor being warmer than wUh a
base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment takes in thc cold air through a duel at the
rear of the fire pot, thc heated air being discharged in a circle at the top
of lire pot, over fire, thus consuming all the gases and pro-bids of combustion, It can be operated in connection with tlie front draft door, or
independently, by a screw register in the rear of base, insuring complete
control ofthe ste ve with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Flue on the back takes the cold air from
the floor and ejects it. intensely heated, through the top adding greatly
to the heating capacity.
Where the stove is operated according to directions we guarantee it to
consume all the gas contained in soft coal, thus deriving the benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkable saving of
fuel over any other stove on the market. The stove will hold fire from
24 to 48 hours without attention.
