YMIR CAMP
IS LIVELY
There's Plenty of Work There
for Those Who Are Looking for It.
A Big Cyanide Plant Under
Construction.���Arlington Strike.
Mr. A. B. ISuokworth, J. P., of
Ymir, is in the city on a business
visit. He reports that there is considerable activity around Ymir. There
is such an abundance of work that
there are no idle men around tne
toivu. At the Vmir in addition to tho
regular force a large special gang is
engaged in tbo erection of a big cyanid-
mg plant, which is to be used in
working ovor the" tailings after they
run through the mill, and it is estimated that ?1 per ton will be saved by
this plant. Seven men are working
at the Wilcox, which, next to the
Ymir, is tbe best developed property
la the camp. About 1,800 feet of work
has been done on this property and
the vein in the face of tlw long tunnel
shows three nnd a half feet of clean
ore, which, it is claimed, will aveiage
.50 to the ton. Tbe company haB in
contemplation the erection of a ten
stamp mill, which, it is thought, will
ho put in lato this year. On the
Foghorn, owned and operated by tho
Golden Monarch Milling company, 14
men are at work aud huve- been for
the past seven months. They are at
present running a tunnel, whioh is in
:I50 feet and expect to tap tho ledge
within the next ISO feet. The surface
workings on this property are all in
ore, and the cleun ore will average 845
per ton. This coinpany has a well
filled treasury and recently purchased
from the Nelson & Fort Sheppard
railway, 640 acres of timber land, and
so it is evident that thev are preparing
for the future. The manager of the
property is Conrad Wolfe. In additon
to those mentioned, there are a number of smaller properties on which
development work is being done, and
a number of prospectors are doing
theii ana. al assessments. Around
Salmo and Erio there is great activity.
Tho Yellowstone, Second Keliel, Maud
S., Arlington, Keystone, und Canadian
King, a*e employing large numbers of
men.
About a year ago Alex Smith,acting
for the Surprise compuny, of which
he is manager, purchased tbe Summit and Bird Fraction mineral
claims, adjoining the Surprise group
and the Maud E. and Wildgoose
claims of the Noble Five, for a small
sum, nnd recently put a small force to
work on the claims, says tbe Sandon
Paystreak, A ledge was strucit close
to the summit and runnng parallel to
the ridge. On the ledge a shaft has
been sunk 1(1 feet uncovering one of
the most remarkable showings ever
exposed in the district. Tho workings have not been proceeded with
sn lllciently to prove the width of the
ledge or the extent of the ore chute,
but already at least fifty tons of oro
have been pluoed on the dump anil
the miners are sacking curborulcs by
thu ton.
It is now calculated that the long
tunnel at tbo Last Chance is within BO
feet of the Gulena ledge and should tap
It within ton days or two weeks, enys
the Sandon Puystreuk. lt will givo a
depth on the vein of 1600 lent, the
deepest working in the Slooan, Thoi.
aie ,10 men on tho payroll, IS working
in the long tunnel and tho remainder
in the mine. Two cars of ore wero
"hipped this week and the mine will
now bo a steady producer. Ur. Hendryx is still acting as manager and
secretary, Mr. Hoap being ill at
Ilanff.
At the Arlington inino near Slocan
City, there has beon considerable dis-
"Utlsfnotlon with the manner in
winch tbe cook at the mess house pro-
purod the meals for the employes. As
a result of this tbo dny shift quit
work and sixteen of the men came to
this city yesterday. The management
does not desire to havo nny trouble
with its employes and thc offending
cook is to be replaced with a new and
it is hoped a better one and this will
smooth matters over and the dissatisfied day shift will rotum to work.

(SPECIAI. TO THE HIHER.)
Vancouver, Aug. 19 ���A serious
railway accident occurred on the main
line of the C. P. R. this morning et
11.45 o'clock, two miles west of Hope.
Whilo No. 1, Imperial Limited, was

track, and the engine and fonr cars
wero derailed. The engineer, Peter
Elghter, had his foot crushed, ano the
mail clerk, Alex. Alian, was injured
about the head. No passengers were
buit*. Tbe accident was due to the
forest fires that are raging all over the
conntry during this hot weather, and
waa entirely unavoidable. The position of the tree being hidden from the
engineer as he came around the curve,
the engine struck the tree and the Injury was done before the train could
ho stopped. Mail was brought in at
six o'clock tbis evening, everything
being transferred around the wreck.
The track itself was cleared for ordinary traffic ut 6 o'clock this evening,
and there wus no delay in traffic ufter
that. As soon as news of the accident
came, the company sent up a wrecking
train. Dr. Weld also went up to attend the injured.

Now Thought That That Number Went

Islander, From Skagway.
Heroic Conduct of the Grew Who Saved
Lives and Lost Their Own.-Partial
List of Those Who Are Lost.
(SPECIAL TO THE MINER.) I
Victoria, B. C, Aug. l!l.-The Far-
allon reached Vancouver today with
most of the remaining survivors of
toe Isiandor. It is officially reported
that the list of missing numbers 43.
Victoria, B, C, Aug. 19.���This city
was plunged into a state of gloom
last night when the steamer Queen
arrived from the north und the skipper
;.outed as his vessel swung into the
dooa, that the steamer Islander, of
this port, one of tbe finest steel passenger vessels in the northwest, had
sunk   with   65   ot ber passengers and
'ew.
The Islander had about 180 people
on board, 71 of whom belonged to the
crew, 107 were passengers, and the remainder stowaways, and wns passing
the south end of Douglas Island not
far from fiom Juueau, when at 2,30
Thursday morning Bhe suddenly crashed into a submerged iceberg. The
berg tore a great bole along her bottom, and into this the water poured in
large volumes which indicated that
the life of the vessel was very abort.
Fifteen minutes later she sank, carrying down the number indicated above.
Among those saved were Messrs. Bel-
court, M. P., and Ray, of Ottawa,
both of whom, however, had narrow
escapes. There seems to have been
some mismanagement in getting away
tbe boats, as lifebonts capable of
carrying fifty people sheered off with
only seventeen persons in them. The
engineers had a terrible experience.
They stood by the vessel until theii
chief rushed below and told them they
had but a few minutes in which to
save themselves.
When they attempted to reach the
deck, the brave fellows found that tbe
bow submerged to such an extent that
only her stern was ahovo wuter and
they were unable to follow by way of
the suloon to the rear, but managed,
however, to reuch the deorc and there
the four men shook bauds and then
leaped into the icy waters just as the
stern disappeared. Tho hand of thc
chief engineer was on tho taffiail ae
ho touched thc water. Many wero
drawn down by the vortex caused by
the sinking vessel.
Captain Foote was not on duty when
the vessel struck, being in his cabin
below, while Pilot Leblano was on
the bridge. Capt. Foote walked the
bridge until the ves.el was about to
plunge to thc bottom when ho leaped
into the sea nnd made his way to a
life raft. He saw that the raft was
o/erorowded, and remarking, "There
are too many of us here, good bye
boys," leapod into tbo water and
shortly afternarls sunk. Another
paiticularly sad death was that of
Mrs. J. H. Ross, wife of the new governor of tho Yukon, who had been to
Dawson for the flrBt time and was
returning to Victoria for the purpose
of buying furniture and furnishings
for her new home. She left four of
hor children in Duwson and had with
her on the trip her year old infant
and her 15 year old niece, both of
whom were drowned with her,' The
list of last as far as obtainable at
present is as follows:
Crew lost���Capt. Foote, muster,
Victoria; (Sco. Allen, third engineer,
Victoria; Horace Smith, second steward, Victoria; P. Burke, oiler, Vio-
toris; Burkhold.r, oiler, Victoria;

Passengers lost���Mrs. J. H. Ross,
wife of Governor Ross, of the Yukon,
with her one year old child and a
siece aged 15; Dr. John Duncan, of
Victoria; Mrs. Phillips and child,

Keating and two sons, Koksllah J.

Vancouver; Mrs. J. L.Wilcox,Seattle;
Mrs. Capt. Niekerson, Victoria.
Victoria, B. % Aug. 19.���Pilot
Loblano, in charge of the steamer
Islander at the time she struck, says:
"The nigbt was fine, and, as we al-
was expect to meet ice, a sharp lookout was kept. At about 2.48 a. m.,
toe crush*came. Tbe boat was under
full speed and no ice was in sight and
there was no fog, bu* the wind was
blowing and it was dark and oloudy.
The fatal iceberg was no doubt even
with the   woter.      After   she   struck,
stopped the engines, when Captain
Foote appeared with the night watchman who reported tbe ship leaking
forward. I told Captoin Foote that
we had better head for the beach, but
he demurred, and when he finally decided to do so tbe ship was taking
water so fast mat she would not
answer the helm. Then I called the
mate and ordered the boats out. This
was done and they weie loaded with
passengers. Many passengers jumped
overboard with life preservers on. I
jumped overboard and was in the
water two hours and a quarter before
securing a piece of wreckage." The
pilot nlso said that many of the men
acted badly, attempting to jump into
the boats before they had been launched. Had it not been for this crowding
and rushing of the bouts, he believed
all would have been saved, with the
possible exception of those who did
not get out of their staterooms, among
whom were Andrew Keating and his
sons, Arthur and Julius, of Los Angeles. The crew, on the other hand,
behaved splendidly, and looked after
the safety of the passengers. After
tho omits hud been luunched the crew
turned their attention to the rafts but
those were also rushed, and after they
had been launched some of the crew
hud to swim fur wreckage aa there
were too many already on the rafts.
He believes the vessel sank in 2il
fathoms and tbat tbo boiler did not
explodo and tbat the woodwork was
curried away by a rush of wuter and
uir. He figured it out that 42 persons
were drowned.
Victoria, Aug. 19. ���Fourth Engineer Denny of the Islander, thinks
the vessel struck the iceberg well
buck, about amidships, and that after
tearing a hole in tho bottom, the ship
rested on the Ice, as when she foundered, sho went down bow first as if
sliding off something. J. G. Morgan,
a well known insurance man of Winnipeg, had a thrilling experience. He
went down with thc ship, being sucked into the vortex, hut the life-
preserver which he wore brought him
to the surface again. Cold water,
however, produoed numbness and finally unconsciousness. Ilo was picked
up finally by Purser Bishop's boat,
and was unconscious for several hours
after reaching kbore. He lost amoug
other effects a large number of applications for life insurance taken in
Dawson, and a bag of gold dust containing .4,000.
Geo. McL. Brown, on behalf of the
C. P. R., today visited the families of
all the members of the crew who were

Montreal, Aug. 19.���The committee
of trackmen here have gone some way
iu following the advice of the boaid
of conciliation. It will be remembered that the board, iu a preliminary report, recommended that President Wilson should leave Montreal
and not interfere further with them,
the triickmens' committee, during the
negotiutions with tbe company. Mr.
Wilson refused to do this, but the
company has now turned him down to
the extent of appointing Mr. Baker, ,i

ville, to do the talking henceforth for
the company while Mr. Wilscn remains in his room at the Grand Union
and directs operations as heforu.
Toronto, Aug. 19,���The Toronto

the various organizations of workers
on the C. P. R. seem to be quite confident that they could brittf; about
peace witli honor if the alien boss of
the strike would put the reins in their

the C. P. R. has been immensely

trackmen bas been greatly weakened

John Snider, With But Seven Days to
Serve,Makes His Es.upe.
Another prisoner escaped frqra tbe
Nelson jail yestarday, several peculiar
features being connected with it. A
little over five months ago John Snider was brought from Grand Forks to
Nelson, Benteuced to undergo six
months imprisonment for drunkenness.
He behaved very well, and three
weeks ago, on account of good be-
havioi and the nearness of hfs release,
he was made u "trusty." being allowed tu go without irons, and have more
liberty around the premises. About
noon yesterday, Snider and another
convict were employed in fixing the
jail fence, when, just after the circus
had passed, he suddenly soulcd the
wall and ran along Vernon street west
and up Stanley. The propeity be had
on him when sentenced had been kept
at the jail oflice, to he handed over to
nlm ou bis lelease, consisted of 810
in oash, a gold watch and chain, a
goatskin overeout wort.': 825, a new
cloth overeout, two mackintoshes, two
valises lull of new clothes and roll
of blankets. At thc time of his escape
he had but seven days more to serro,
next Tuesday having been the last
duy of his incarceration. Whether
tho mnsio of the circus band drove
him a little off his head or not is unknown. Whatever was the cause he
made a successful but rather foolish
escape.
SOUTH AFRICAN TRADE.
War and Plague Make it Baid to Get
at Figaros,
Washington. Ang. 19.���Tho state department bas received a long report
on conditions in Soutli Africa from
Oonsul-Gcneral Stowe at Capetown,
dated a .few days before bis resigna-
ton was received at the department.
Tbe war and plague, says Mr. Stowe-
have prevented the customs olllcials
from collecting tbe usual annual statistics covering the trade for the
colonies for the calendar year ^of 1900
and as all imports from the use of thc
Imperial the Colonial military forces
are admitted duty free It Is impossible
to make a comparison with the trade
of the preceeding year However, thc
figures available show that thu imports from tho United States In 1600
were greater than those of 1899 and
that this courtry still stands second
among the nations exporting direct to
South Africa snd iu addition ships u
large amount of supplier, via England.
Paducah, Ky., Aug. 19.���The steamer City of Golconda, plying between
this city and Elizabethtown, Ills,

CENSUS RETURNS.
The cetsus returns published by The
Miner on Saturday show that the star
of the west is in the ascendancy.   The
returns show thut  the   population   of
tho Dominion is 5,33H,H82,and that tbo
increase over the figures of 1891 are in
round   numbers   half   a   million     of
people.    The increase is largest in the
west   as   British Columbia, Manitoba
and tbe Northwest   Territories out  of
the total increase, 500,000,are orodited
with an augmentation of .04,076. This
province has almost doubled in   population   in   the   decade, as it   has   increased from 08 lTIUo 100,000,or nearly
one   fiftii   of   the entire gain made in
the   Domiuion.    Manitoba   has added
93,598   to   her   population   while the
Territories have grown numerically to
tbe extent   of   78,291.    This   gives   a
total of 2(14,070.    These   figures   absolutely   demonstrnte   that   the west is
growing more   rapidly than   the east.
Besiues this tbe mining   and other resources    in   British   Columbia     give
promise of greater expansion than ever
before and with tbis will come  an in-
urease in the   population.     Manitoba
this year is raising the   greatest  crop
of wheat that has ever been known in
that provl.ee, and   tbis   will advance
her importance, cause the   cultivation
of large areas   of new   land and bring
many   settlers   within   her   confines.
The Northwest Territories are coming
to   the   front   of late with more then
usual activity. The gold in the Yukon
shows   no   signs   of   giving   out and
there is certain   to be   great progreBB
and un increase in the number of peO'
pie in the territories.    Tbe west may,
therefore,    be relied on to keep up its
increase.
In the eastern provinces Quebec
shows tbo biggest increase, 132.000
having been added to her population.
Ontario, in which such large gains
wero expected, shows an increase of
only 53,057. New Brunswick shows
only small gains having added only
9,830, and Nova Scotia only 8,720.
Prince Edward Island has decreased,
there being 5,820 less peoplo thun there
were in 1801.
Of course, much of the gain of the
west bas been at tne expense of the
east, as a large percentage of the
people hero, in Manitoba and in
the Northwest Territories huve
changed their places of residence from
the east to the west during the past
ten yearN, and there is room and opportunity here for as many more as
have already arrived.
Of tho two largest cities in the east
Montreal has grown to tho extent of
45,645, which Toronto has added
211,751. In British Columbia, Van
eouvcr has grown from 13,700 to 20,-
106, a gain of 12,1'jii, while Victoria,
which had a population of 10,811 In
1801 and wns then the largest city in
the province, litis taken second place
nnd is now credited with 20,821, the
increase being only 4,340. It is a
singular fact tbat there is only a
difference of 73 between the population of Halifax and St. .lohn, the
former having 40,787, and the lattor
40,711. In 1891 St. .John had 30,179
while Halifax hud SB,405, tho former
having ills more tbnn thc latter and
now theii positions arc reversed,Halifax biting in the lead.
With a population of noarly live

BURIED THE HATCUET.
The milionium must be approaching
with   rapid   strides   for the people of
Grand   ForkB und Columbia are about
to amalgamate under one civic govern
ment.     The time was when   tbe resi
dents of the two cities would  no more
mix than oil and water for the hatred
was  strong  and   as fierce as a forest
flio in August.     A traveler who passed a night in one pluce would   be   ostracised   in   tbo   other.     To mention
Columbia   favorably   in Grand   Forks
was   considered   a   worse crime than
horse stealing.    A commercial traveler
once   stated     in   Columbia    that   he
thought   Grand   Forks had  a population of at leust 3,000 souls nnd he sold
no   goods   in the former place on that
occasion.     Columbiu boys who visited
Orand   Forks   wore   greeted   with   a
shower   of   rocks   hurled by tho lads
and   lasses  of tho pluce.    The feeling
for a year or two was as lioice as that
between the   Capuiots aud the Monta-
guos   till   peoplo  outside of tbe town
wished   a plague on both tho   towns.
Now self interest,which wus tbe cause
of   tho   quarrel, is wbat   impel Is  the
people   of   the   tfoo municipalities to
unite.     They can be more prosperous
under ono civic government   than two
and   so   the   Grand Forks council has
passed a resolution fur the amalgamation with Colnmbia and within  a few
days   the   people   will   decide at the
polls whether they wish to unlto   un-
dor tbe agreement   which  lias already
been reached by the two councils.
The rivalry between the towns was a
senseless one and only led, to   enmity
and   waste   and   tho   vote In favor of
consolidation should be  unanimous as
it doubtless will be.

Leading Features of the Circus That Showed Here
Yesterday.      ,
Menagerie.    Clowns.    Pink

Balloons.
I OrUHc ORAM on.il/ 0* MM .owo.n
���__>_R.
That necessary adjunct to a small
hoy's summer vacation���a circus���has
come and gone. It marked thc only
occasion in the year that pater
familias Is Riad that he is the father
of a large family for it provides him
with oxcusoB.of assorted ages and sizes,
for turning out again to see the army
of funny clowns, to say nothing of the
monkeys and the wonderful performing elephant. Any circus that dous
not have clowns and monkeys and an
elephant and pink lemonade and toy
balloons is no circus at all. Tbey
were all there yesterday, all for the
one price of admission which allowed
you to seethe grand collection of wild
and ferocious animals in the first tent
to the right, and then to pass into the
tho immense waterproof tent beyond,
where for three hours the world's
greatest artists would give an entertainment the equal of whicli was never
before given under canvas. At least
that was what the bills and a young
man with a red handkerchief around
his neck���and he had any amount of
neck���told the public.
After you separated yourself from
your money you went in among the
aforo-mentioned wild and ferocious
animals. They were a mild looking
lot and were really most indifferent
to the admiring glances of the nicest
young ladies of Nelson. Directly opposite the main entrance was a huge
Hoyopolus which ip composed of a
body about twice tho size of an ordinary ox, a pair of horns which oegan
to grow when they were soft and consequently sagged down, and a nose
that looked as if it had been in a
railroad smash-up. The nostrils are
so arranged that they can defect an
odot from any direction but from an
artistic standpoint they were put in
wrong. It was an ill-mannered Hoyopolus for It ehowed gum In a most
Vulgar way all the time the sooiety
people were looking at it. Next you
came to a pair of small black bears
and the pocket edition of a porcupine,
animals exceedingly rare in this part
of the country. In the next cage a
hyena lay on its back and kicked its
feet in the air in a very indecent manner. But the palm for hideousness
was carried off by the black Polar
bear. Its only redeeming feature was
a dinky little white spot on its breast
which gave it a very decollette look.
Then came the monkeys, one of which
showed a strong resemblance to Joe
Downs. They were very fond of life,
in faot they were busily engaged looking for it all over their bodies. The
lion was a beauty. Be was a huge
fellow with a mane that gave him a
truly regal appearance. He was wild.
It was enough to make any self respecting lion wild to travel with snch
a small menagerie. The elephant was
a huge old girl that rejoiced iu the
name uf Queen. For an old maid she
was very untidy as she threw big
bunches of dirt all over her back. She
showed the fallacy of the generally
belioved faot that a female can't throw
straight, and although sho is sixty
years old she ate popcorn with the
Bppetite of the ordinary aummer girl.
There was a sacred ox from India and
an Asiatic Yak that looked as if it had
been born In a threshing machine and
lived on cyclones. A queor looking
horse and a dromedary with an apologetic exoieasion on its face made up
the rest of the collection.
And then the main show coinmoncod
in the big tent with a procession which
around twice around tho two
rings, in which everyone took part.
It was tho first appoarnnce of the
clowns and it is too bad that it was
not tholr last, for of all tho bum
clowns that ever happened, those were
the worst. It was also the first ap
pearanee of the band. Now circus
bands are generally about tbe limit
as bands go, the only redeeming feat'
ures being the speed with which they
play and their evident dosire to get
it ovei as soon as possible. Uut Sells
& Urays' band is different. It actually played music. It should have
been put in the Bide show with the
rest ol the curiosities. Next to the
man who shouted "Pop corn, feeve-a
bag, " and popped on your corns while
he was serving his customers, tho
band was the most pleasing part of
the show.
The dorses were a flue lot but they
did preciouB little. A girl turned
some somersaults on the back of one
while a man endeavored to do ths
same on the back of another and that
was about all they did. The best
baro-baek riding was done by a cluwn

who did some clever and funny   work
with his friend, a mule.
Queen came in to do her stunt which
consisted of walking over her keeper
and balancing herself on two feet.
There didn't seem to be much to the
latter aot as her feet were big enough
to balance a brick block on. Her
movements shook oft some of the dirt
and showed that her skin waa terribly
wrinkled. If it was pulled out even
there would be enough to cover two
elephants.
The aorobatic force consisted chiefly
of tightB as the same people came out
time after time, but always in different colored costumes. However, some
of the woik was very good, lint the
man who tackled the horizontal bars
was positively awful. Any boy in
Nelson ten years of age, who cannot
doubly'discount him has good reason
to be ashamed of himself. Two beautiful young ladies went on the platform between the two rings and gave
every indication of their intention to
make a meal of a table and chair.
However, it resolved itself into a display of jaw power that can bo found
only in beautiful young ladies.
They hung by sheir teeth to ropes and
were pulled skywards and one of them
held a trapeze in her mouth���that is a
piece of leather to whicli tbe trapeze
was attached���and the other performed on it.
But the best of the whole show in
that line was the Eddy family, composed of eig!-* people. They are acrobats of the urst water and the chief
charm of their acts is the grace with
whioh they perform them. One girl
stands on thc sohulders of a girl who
stands on the shoulder, of another girl
and turns a backward Bomersaullt on-1
to tbo shoulders of a: man who is
standing-on the Bhoulders of another
man.   That's a pretty good tn ek.
There waB the usual conceit alter
the main show and to its credit let it
be said that it was no worse than the
ordinary circus concert. Bnt that's
not saying much foi it. There was
also a Bide show which wa9 pretty
nearly half as good as the painted
canvases out in front of it.
But on the whole It is worth going
to if only to get a peep at tbat magnificent lion who looked as dignified
in his dirty little oage as if he were
reigning supreme in his native jungle.

Two of the circus employees hired a

luck fishing. Not being very well
acquainted with the habits of trout,
for bait they took out dough, and a
bystander having Uid them that some
nice fish had been caught in tht
vicinity of the 0. P. R. wlmrf.and the
location of the wharf pointed out to
them, they rowed awuy. Three hours
Inter they came back with a stiing of
largo suckers, which they proudly
proclaimed as trout, saying that it
was the first time in years that thev
had been a-Ushing but that tncy had
not forgotten how, and wishing ihey
ban a few more days to enjoy such
magnificent sport. Thoy were so
proud and happy in the consciousness
of theii abiiiv as fishermen that the
boat house keeper had not the heart to
uiuli-it ve them as to tbu variety of
the fish they had caught.      _ _���_

A lecture was given last evening at
tho corner of Haker and Ward streets
describing the siege of Mafeking, by
one of the town guard that did such
good work in Us dofence. A large
crowd was attracted by the lecture,
which was most interesting.
A rancher who resides near the Narrows, below Procter, was in town yesterday purchasing supplies. He states
that everything in that vicinity has
boen quiet since the completion of the
Balfour branch, but farming operations are going along steadily and
considerable land has been cleared and
put under crop this season.
The n-.teling of the City Council last
night did not materialize, as other at
tractions in piogress at the same time
proved too tempting to allow mora
than enough for a quorum to attend,
and even they were iu a hurry to get
away. On motions of Alderman Hamilton seconded by Alderman Patterson
it was decided to adjourn till this
evening at 8.30.
Acting Chief Chambers of the fire
department gave the brigade a valuable practice run at. 2 o'clock this
morning when he caused an alarm to
be rung in from the 0. P. R. depot.
The membors ot the brigade mustered
quickly but thc horse that is temporarily filling the place of the one that
recently died gave considerable
trouble by becoming "rattled" and
knocking down the suspended harness, thereby Bearing its mate. However, in spite of this, the,response to
the alarm was rapid. The chief is
expected to return to the city today
with a new horse to complete the
tea"?.
At the sitting of the local police
court yesterday morning before Mayor
Fletcher, the case of Contractor Gillett, who was Bumiuoned for cutting
down trees on llendryx street, adjoining the new high school grounds, was
heard. Whilo thc clearing of the
grounds on the site of the new
grounds was going on, the city workmen were also employed in grading
Latimer and llendryx streets in front,
of tbe site. Mr. Gillett had told the
foreman to have the trees on llendryx
street out down, and this was done.
The instruction of the city engineer
had been to leave all the trees standing in opening up new streets that it
was possible to spaie. S.S Taylor,K.C.
whe acted for Gillett, asked the foreman, who was called as witness, who
he generally received his orders from.
He stated they wero issued generally
by the mayor but sometimes by the
aldermen. Mr.Taylor then asked him
if in the present case he had received
the order from Mr. Gillett as a civic
official and he replied that he had.
Mr. Taylor then said that aa the trees
had been cut down by city workmen
under the order of a foreman who had
leceived bIB orders from an alderman,
who was also member of the public
works comniitee, he did net see how
that aldermen could he proceeded
ngainst as a private citizen. Mayoi
Fletcher then dismissed the case.

Victoria, B, C, Aug. 19.���Vioton-
ans are waiting patiently for an
official list of those who lost their
lives in the disaster which overtook
the steamer Islander, for although the
list of dead nas been reduced to 42 by
the reports which reached Vancouver
this afternoon, there are still a number of names which have not been received here. The day has been given
to a discussion of the accident. It is
said by some that it is quite possible
that the steamer struck on a rugged
reef which runs out from Tantallon
Point, as few icebergs are found in
that part of the Sound, they mostly
finding their way ont by Taku Arm.
But, it must be remembered, that for
every foot ice above water there are
seven feet under water and it is possible for a navigator to see one which
his steamer is running onto. All admit
by the time that Capt. Foote reached
the bridge it was too late to beach the
vessel, in fact, it was impossible as
tho propel lor was out of water. Tne
crew, according to the evidence of all,
acted splenciidy and left the boats to
the passengers, they themselves being
satisfied with pieces of wreckage to
cling to until picked up by the boats
Capt. Foote did not jump from the
raft, but was thrown off it when it
capsized and he went down as he could
not swim a atroke. Some o; the passengers acted most inhumanely, cutting
the ropes as soon as they got into the
boats and pushing off from the steamer. The chief criticism as to the
operation of the steamer is that she
should have been slowed down as soon
as it was found that sho was running
into ice.
^_-_��      v m:i:-.;_*'.���
Victoria, B. C, Aug. 1!).���Second
Officer Powell made the statement to
night that he and Capt. Foote got on
a raft ufter leaving the steamer,
which sank under them. The passengers ou the raft badgered thc captain
sc that he dropped off and got hold of
un oar which kept hiin up until after
day light when he sank. Thc second
officer was ttireatened with a revolver
in tho bands ol one of the passengers
and slipped from the raft and got on
to a cabin door from which he was
taken in tlie morning. The stewards
stayed with the steamer until she
sank, endeavoring to get the passengers out In fact, the second stewaid
remained after the vessel had sunk
and was lost, being drawn down as he
was running through the saloon waking thc passengers and urging them
to save themselves. When it is considered that IBS peoplo were saved out.
of 170 in seventeen minutes, in which
time the six life boats and four life
rafts were successfully launched, it
Bhows that splendid work wus done
by the crow. Of the 23 mon in the
steward's department only four found
places in the boats, the others relying
on such wreckage as they could find as
the engineers and officers had done.
Tne fact that tho Islander was well
supplied with life belts mado it possible for many of the passengers to remain alloat until picked up by the
boats.
VISITED THE EXPOSITION.
Mr. D. K. Young, managing director of the Similkameen Valley Coal
Companv, Limited, has just returned
from a visit to the east. While there
he visited Toronto. Buffalo, Chicago,
St. Paul, Minneapolis and other
points.    The journey was made in the
interest of his company and he says he
closed somo satisfactory deals on its
behalf. The work of developing the
property of the company will be commenced within the next 60 days. Mr.
Yonng while in Buffalo saw the sights
of the Pan-American Exposition and
says that it is meritorious and worthy
of inspection. Thc illumination is one
of the most, attractive features. Ihe
buildings, he says, are line from an
architectural standpoint. That part
of the Exposition devoted to the eariug
of babes in Inoubatois seems, he says
to bo one of the centers of interest.
The Canadian portion of the show is
worthy of the country It is intended
to represent. Coming home, he says,
he noticed that the crops were large
in Minnesota and Dakota; in fact,
they are the best raised in years. The
intense heal,however, had a bad effect
on the crops in the cast and Bouth
and on the whole they will bo below
the average in tho United States.
