tbe concontriilor closed down in April
Insl work   has   been   continued   in   a
small way and chieily consisted in the

he com induced ho   as to get under   the
large ore shoots   which wore found in
the   upper   levels.    It is very sntlsac-
lory to llnd that   both   the   Highland
nnd Uiglijandei and the latter   should
not be confused with the former, have
foun.3 that their   bodies go down, and
they   are   the only two mines in   tbe
camp which   havo  attempted to prove
theii*    seins   at     depth.       The     ore
shoots of the Highland are now proved
to a depth of 40u feet below   the  apex
of the outcrop. There are eight claims

Sidney S. Norman hits bonded the
(iiitencau, Simcoe nnd Orillia claims
on Ten .Mile creek. This group adjoins tiie EntBi-piise on tho southeast.
The hond runs for a year and live per
cent, is to be paid in tbree months.
The owners of tbe property are T. E.
Reed and C. E. Smitheringale and Mr.
Norman has secured the bond in the
interest ot an eastern syndicate which
lie represents. Mr. Norman yesterday
sent three miners to the property
with instructions to drive a tunnel in
for a distance of'TOO feet and it is
anticipated that they will tap tbe
ledge at a depth of 1(10 feet. The
ledge curries a dry silver ore from,
which some veiy high assays have
beon obtained.
Mr. Norman says that both the
Arlington and the Enterprise are shipping. The 40-ton concentrating mill
of the latter company will soon begin
operations. The Enterprise has just
installed five baby drills each of
which can be operated by one man.
The camp is in a flourishing condition Mr. Norman intends to leave
shortly for New Denver, Silverton and
othei points on tbe lake and expects
t.ie trip will occupy about two weeks,
At the record olliee there was but
one location entered yesterday, that
of the Standard, on Iron Mountain,
between Lost and Sheep creeks, by L.
H. Snyder.

Vancouver, 1). C, Sept. 4.���The
following in an official report received
oy Oeneral Superintendent Marpole
today; E. .1. Duehesnay was Hilled
almost instantly at 10.60 this morning
by a rock falling on him as ho was
directing the men in tht west erd of
tunnel No. 11.
The sad news was leceived as a
severe shock in Vancouver this mcrn-
ig, where Mr. Duehesney was widely
known and respected. He held the
position of assistant general superintendent under Mr. Marpole. He had
been on the track working tirelessly
since last May, owing to the trackmen's strike, aud was on his way
home to see his family for the first
time since then, when overtaken by
the hand of death. He was killed
while directing the men in subduing
the flames where the timbers in the
tunnel 11 miles from North Bond bad
taken Are.
Mr. Duehesnay was about -15 years
olo and had been connected with the
C. P. R. since 1H73. He flrst worked
on the Algoma branch on the engineer's staff and afterward on the Lake
Superior and Nipissing divisions. He
camo west to take a position on the
engineering staff in Vancouver. Iu
lS'.lii his worth was recognized by his
being appointed suoerintcndcnt. In

Victoria, B. C, Sept. 3. ���(Delayed
on account of wiros being down) ���
Today at noon, J. 0. Brown, M. P.
P., of New Westminster, was sworn
in as a member of the Executive
Council of British Columbia. The advent of Mr. Brown to the Cabinet was
piedieted ou Friday last, and, not-
withstanding skeptical remarks of
many readers who scouted the arrangement as impossible, it has been
verified. Brown has been sworn in
but this awakens but little interest
compared with the exigencies which
the step will occasion Richard Mcllride, as Minister of Mines, is indignant over the appointment and unless
his sentiments undergo a radical
amendment, his resignation will be
in the hands of the Premier tonight.
Prentice was also understood to be
hostile to the appointment, but his
elevation to the Department of finance
in succession to Turner mollified bis
wrath. To givo Prentice the portfolio
of finance it was found necessary to
change the programme in regard to
Brown and to give him tho lesser post
of Provincial Secretary.
lt was significant of tbe feeling in
the Cabinet itself that when Brown
was swoin in beforo the Lieutenant-
Governor at noon there were none of
the Ministers present excepting the
premier and the new finance minister.
Brown camo over on Snnday night,
the principal object of his visit being
to confer witb tho government togeth-
or with Jndgo Bole, in connection
with concessions sought by the Great
Northern railway at tho City of New
Westminster and to find out if the
granting of those concessions would
conflict with the Government's plans
regarding thc now bridge with which
it is proposed to span the Fraser
Brown had an appointment with
the. Government this morning at 11
o'clock but at that hour tho Executive
were in deep conference winding up
affairs consequent upon the relinquishment of office by prospective
Agont General Turner. Turner handed in his iesignation today, and there
was naturally a great deal of business
which had to be wound up in connection with his departure. He will
likely leave in about a fortnight for
E-igland. It is understood that at tbo
council the Premier announced his
unalterable roBolve to include the
member for New Westminster in tho
cabinet. Immediately after the meeting, Brown, who had been waiting,
joined tho Premier, and with Prentice
waited on His Honor. Tho now minister was officially admitted to the
Executive and the Premier assigned
him the post of Provincial Secretary
and Minister of Education. Hon. Mr.
Prentice in turn was invested with
the portfolio of Finance and Agriculture.
The principal opposition to the new
minister came from Eberts and Mc-
Bride. The latter returned f-.om a
tour of the upper country only last
night, and was not backward in expressing his resentment over the step
contemplated by the Preinior. His
resentment, it is fully expected will
take tangible form, but it is doubtful
whether that of Eberts will.
In political- circles the change
created a great deal of comment, and
it is regarded as a virtual reveision
to Martinism. The belief that the
Piemier's ignoring representations of
his ministers was governed by suggestions from Martin is strengthened by
tbo activity which Midlines And Sloan
The   Miner.)
are exhibiting in tlio districts of
which Nanaimo is the oontro and there
are some who do not hesitate to predict that the introduction of Mr. Mo-
Innes is about the next step in the
It is safe to say that tho decision
which has beon reached dissatisfies uo
one so much as the retiring Minister
of Finance who naturally dislikes
leaving his office with such remark
able coalition.
Mclliidowas soon this afternoon.
He said: "I bave resigned from the
Government for reasons which the
public will surmise. My resignation
is the outcome of a conversation pie-
vionsly held with the Premier in
which I outlinod what my course
would bo in certain eventualities. I
sent a letter to the Premier today,
and the Governor has also boon acquainted with my decision. I have no
dottbt that my resignation will be ac*
cepted. I am now busily engaged in
getting my effects together and preparing to hand over the department to
my suocessor. Who he will be I cannot toll."
This morning Captain Tatlow beaded a number of supporters of tho Government who waited oo the Premier
asking that the rumored change bo not
made. Tonight Ralph Smith, who,
with Smith Curtis, happens to be in
the eity stated that it wasovident that
the Martin-Mclniics combination with
Dunsmuir, so much in evioence last
session, was still alive. Labor people,
ho 9aid, should spooially fight the
local elections consequent on Brown's
selection and the evidence of shifting
in Mclnnes' constituenoy. While the
government has passed some things
fiiendly to labor tbeir general policy
has been antagonistic and therefore
should be opposed.
Aotive steps are being taken to
bring out an anti-government candidate hore for the bye-election. It is
possible that Dunsmuir may resign
thc South Nanaimo seat and run in
Victoria, and Mclnnes, who is expected to succeed McBride, will run in
South Nanaimo. Il, is believed thiB
will be tho course of Dunsmuir if he
does not resign.
Victoria, B. C, Sept. 3.���There was
a long and stormy Cabinet session this
morning at which Dunsmuir insisted
on the advent of Brown of New Westminister in the Cabinet. Eberts, Mcllride and Prentice violently piotested
without avail. Prentice was offered
the finance portfolio and Brown was
eventually sworn in as Provincial
Secretary. McBiide will resign, if
hit resignation is not alroady in the
hands of the Premier. Prentice will
probably icsign also. It is believed
the Premier will shortly retire and
that Mclnnes will succeed him.
Excitement hero is at full heat. A
crisis is believed to be imminent. It
is regarded as a virtual reversion to
Martinism and bas been dictated by
Martin to tho Premier, who is willing
to take Martin's advice rather than
that of his Ministers.

Beilin, Sept. 4.���Emperor William's
reception of the Chinese mission of
expiation, headed by Prince Chun,
which took place today at Potsdam,
waa marked with all the severity
consistent with an audience nominally

on entering tlie palace, was noi accorded a salute by tho (lard dn Corps.
Emperor William received him
seated, The buttons and epauietts of
his majesty's white uniform were enveloped in crepe. Prinue ('bun bowod

Ever since the empires have beeu

legations we have stood uninterrupted

your majesty's minister, Huron Von
Kettler, a man who, as long as he occupied his position in Pekin,paid careful attention to tbe interests of our
eountrios and to whom we arc bound
to pay our special aeknowlodgements.
We regret most deeply tbat Baron Von
Kctller met so terrible au end. The
fact tbat we were not in a position lo
tako due protective measures is painful to our sense of responsibility, it
Is this feeling of responsibility which

Prince Chun, our own brother, will

troops from a far distance, put dowu
the Boxer rebellion, and restored

We have, therefore,commanded Prince

There is a small and noisy element
In the United States, headed by the
New York Sun, which seems to think
that Canada might be induced to
annex itself to the United States.
The movement has no great strength
nor has it many adherents, but a few
busy bodies can sometimes make a
very loud noise. It is certain that Sis
per cent., if not more, of the peoplo
of the United States have no strong
desire for tbe annexation of Canada
Rod never give the question even a
thought. Along the boundary lino
lietvroen tho two countries, like it is
on the lino dividing other nations
whoso territories abut, the friction
of International jealousy is the
Strongest and the matter of annexation is discussed along tho frontier
Wore or less, for the purpose of having something to dispute about, more
than anything else, by a few
citizens of the twd countries.
The talk of the annexation of
Canada and hor affairs decreases with each mile distant from
thc boundary line in the United
���States. Except in very few instances
public speakers and the press make
vory few references to tho question of
annexation in tbe middle or southern
portion of the Republic, and it is certain that the people of the United
States as a wholehavo no burning desire
to make the Dominion a part of their
It is true that there is a society in
New York aDd that Androw Carnegie,
Hon. Elihu Root and Hon. .lohn Hay
are among its members,which socks tho
conquest, or rather the acquisition of
Canada for their country by peaceful
means, but they do not represent any
largo or -uflucntiul element and that
those who make up the society may
very well bo regarded as a lot of impractical faddists, in respect to the
object whioh thoy aro seeking to attain, is ovident bocanse it is so
wildly improbable of accomplishmont.
On this sido of tbo lino whatever
little sontimont there may have beon
at one timo in favor of annexation
wus dead and buried, "unwept, un-
honorod and unsung," long since
and there is no country in the world
tbat bas a more patriotic lot of people
than Canada. They love their native
land, its admirable laws and its
splendid institutions far too well to
allow any spirit of annexation to
dominate them. Thev aro engaged in
tbo task of building up a groat
country which they hope in time to
make second to none in wealth and
influence and wi uid not havo annexation if it were coupled with many
times the advantages which the
United States could give them They
do not care to change their present
condition of independence to become
mere dependont states ruled by a
strong central government at
Besides this, the spirit of imperial-
iim which dominates the citizens of
Canada is an oxceedinlgy strong part
of their makeup. This spirit was
shown in tbe enthusiastic manner in
which the young men vied with each
other in volunteering foi service in the
Canadian oontingenls for Soutli Africa
It was not a question of soonriug the
number wanted so much as it was to
make selections from tho large number who desired to serve the empire.
If tho few people in the United States
who desire annexation had been present in any ono of tbo Canadian cities
and seen for themselves the wild outbursts of patriotism that followed the
relief of Mafeikng, Ladysmitb and
Kimberley thoy would recognize clearly the fact that annexation is dead in
this country and that it will require
louder and more eloquent trumpeters
tbat Carnegie, Hays, Root and the
Now York Sun to give it even the
signs of life.
It is ceitain that annexation will
not como in the present generations,
nor, for that matter, for many generations to come, for tho national and
imperialistic spirit whicli now so
strongly animates tho people -vill
grow with tbe growth of the country

The mines there for a timo donned the

price of lead, nut as the metal did not
advanco thoy resumed shipments and
are adapting themselves to tho
changed conditions, with which they
are confronted. Not only arc the
older properties working, but new

productive list. The maigin of profit
is small, but still the generally high
merits of tho mines enables them to be
operated under the adverse conditions
which exist. Tbo action of the Slocan
mine owners is commendable, as when
load fell with such a crash it looked
as though the slump was so great that
it had taken all tbo profit out of silver-lead mining. When they had
recovered a little from the shock and
had time to look around them they
realized that they could continue
operatons and by tho exercise of rigid
enconoiuy could icalize a small profit,
and thc Slocan is nearly as active as
it ever was. They have tile consolation, too, cf knowing that if there is
a change it will be for the bettor ae it
is obvious that lead cannot long
remain at its present bedrock
price, and an era of belter prices for
tbe metal cannot be far away. An in
crease of a ��1 a ton would be of great
help, while a restoration to tho pi ices
which attained during a portion of
1900 would make the Slocan tbe
thoater of the greatest activity ever
experienced there. In 181)1 the average price of pig lead in London was
��18 IBs. Then the average gradually
dropped eaoh year until 13OT and 1804
when it reached ��9 12s. From then
it gradually rose each year and has
been Hovering between ��12 aud ��13.
At preaont. the price in London is a
little over ��11.
There aro factors which will ultimately help out the silver-load interests and the main ono of these, tho
establishment of a lead icfinery at
somf central point in the Kootenays
ike Nelson, would be of great help,
s it would be the lirst attempt mado
t supplying Canada with homo mado
dg lead. Tho next step naturally
vculd be to supply the country with
the manufactured products of lead. It
is important, therefore, tbat the
initial step, the establishment of the
lead lefinery, be taken at the earliest
possible moment and the other corollary industries are as certain to bo
established as tbe day is to follow the
night. Once Canada begins to consume Her own lead and the products of
lead aro manufactured at home a new
aod prosperous era is certain for the
silver lead interests. There is a bonus
of $5 per ton awaiting the rulinei of
lead as fast as ho turns it out and,
with tbis muoh of an encouragement,

of exaggeration, and in nothing has
this been more noteworthy than in
our hysterical lametations over the
losses incurred during the Boer war.
Yet, when compared with those of
other previous campaigns, they are
almost infinitesimal. The official returns just published, bringing tho
total oasualties down to date, figure
out 20,901 deaths, of whom 799 were
officers. Distinguishing further we
find that 392 officers and 4,083 mon
were killed in action, while 12
officers with 1,878 men subsequently
died of wounds. The deaths from
disease were 251 officers and 9,970
mon, bringing up the grand total of
deaths, aoeidental or in captivity, to
780 officers and 15,9118 men additional
To these must be added deaths of thoso

The most satisfactory way to got at
the weigh of oro standing in a mint-
is to measuie up an excavation from
which a known weight of ore has
been removed, says the Mining Importer. It is however, not always
possible to do this, and tbo next best
method is to tako a representative
sample and determine the specific
gravity. A cubic foot of water
weighs &2H pounds, and by multiplying 02K by the specilic gravity of the
mineral us determined, ono will
obtain the weight of a cubic foot of
oro as it stands. Thin latter method,
whilst not as accurate as tho first
method, yet it gives results accurate
enough fur all praotical purposes. Il

���He  paid this disgraceful price for tbe
I leg lance of some   2a members of the

contracts with the C.   P. R. above the

15. The cases at present on the
docket are l!ex vs. Forbes, criminal
assault; Rex vs. Bloornfield and
Ilollin, robbery and assault; and Tony
Ley den, theft and jail breaking, but
us Tony has not been captured since
his latest escape, it is very doubtful

To secure additional information
directly from the people, it io proposed to send little boxes of gold and
greenbacks to persons who write tho
most interesting, detailed, and truthful descriptions of their experience on
tho following topics.
1. How have you been affected by
coffee drinking and by changing from
coffee to I'ostum.
2. Do you know any one who has
been drivtn away from Postnm because
it camo to the table weak and characterless at the first trial?
3. Did you set such a person right
regarding the easy way to make Pos
turn clear, black, and with a crisp,
rich taste'.'
4. Have yon ever found a better way
to make it than to use four heaping
teaspoonsful to thc   pint of water, let
tuud on stove until real boiling
begins, then note the clock and allow
it to continue easy boiling full 15
minutes from that time stirring dpwn
occasionally'.' (A piece of butter
about tho size of a navy bean, placed
in the pot will prevent boiling over.)
a. (iivd names and account of those

Almost everyone interested in pure
fond and drink is willing to have
their name and letter appear in the
papers, for such help as it may offer
to tbe human race. However, a request to omit name will be respected.
Dvory friend of I'ostum is urged to
write and each letter will be held in
high esteem by the company, as an
evidence of such friendship, while the
little boxes of gold and envelopes of
money will reach many modest writers
whose plain and sensible letters contain tlie facts dcsiied, although the
nender may have but small laith in
winning at Ihe time of wrillng. |

Before Judge Forin on Tuesday a
three-cornered case, that of Tattersall
vs. McMillan und Honk of Slocau
Cily was tried. In this case a garnishee had been issued against llouk
to recover the sum of . (70, which it
was claimed he owed the other defendant, McMillan, and fur which sum
the plaintiff Tattersall was suing.
The defense was that tlie money had
been assigned and paid over to
another party. It appeared that this
assignment was in the shape of an
order, and was given about the time
that tbe garnishee was served, notwithstanding that II,nils had stated
upon service of the garnishee that no
assignment bad been made. It was
contended iu any event that an order
for money was not sufficient to defeat
a garnishee, and judgment was given
against the defendants with costs.

"It is not a joyous or festive occasion,
nor the fulfillment of ,1 .simple act of
courtesy which brings your Imperial
highness to me; but a deeply melancholy and very serious event. My
minister to thc court of the Emperor
of China has been -Jain in the capital
of China bv the murderous weapons of
Chinese soldiers,acting under superior
command, an unheard of crime, which
is branded as infamous by International law and the usages of ull nations, From the mouth of your Imperial highness I huve just received
un expression of the deep regret of
the Emperor of China. I readily believe your Imperial brother personally stood uloof from this crime aud
the subsequent acts of violence against
the inviolable legations and peaceful
foreigners. All the greater is the
guilt resting on his advisors and
Government. The latter must not
delude themselves with Die belief that
they are ublo to obtain atonement, and
pardon for their guilt by this expiatory mission alone. They will be
judged by their ,future conduct, in
accordance with the laws of nation..
If the Emperor of China conducts the
government of his great einpue henceforth strictly in flic spirit of these
prescriptions, then will his hopes be
fulfilled and the results of the complications of the past year will be overcome and between Germany und
China, us former ly. peaceful und
friendly relations will again prevail.
