Cornwall and York ro-
welcome   to the west  at
Chief Olllcer Rohertson, recalled, was
: put through a strict examination by
Mr. ilodwell. for the attorney-gen-
eral'a department. He denied that
Captain Leblanc, the pilot,was drunk,
lie was with bun on tho bridge from
7.4"i p. in. to a.in p. m. The steamer
h'arallon passed, and witness asked it
bo would blow tbo passing whistle.
Tho pilot replied, "Oh, no; she'll
clear." Witness thought the steamer
was going a little closer. There was
nothing to give witness tho impression that the pilot's condition was
such as to make bim reckless. He
ceitainly was not under the influence
of liquor.
The enquiry was continued in the
afternoon with tho first officer ot the
wrecked steamer still on the stand.
He swore that after launching tiie
boats on the starboard side, lie called
out to those he bad placed iu them to
stand by the steamor to render assistance, but tiie passengers infused and
allowed the boats to drift away.    The
Further Details of the Islander Disaster Brought Out.
vietoria, Sept. 20.���When the in*
'1'iiry into the Islander wreck was ro-
Minied today, II. I'uddicombe, of
Tacoma, a pasBenger, stated tbat from
Oie appearance of the captain he form-
ad tbe impression that ho was under
the influence of liqnor. Pressed by
Mr.Davis, counsel for the C. If. N.
l-'��., he said that ho could not describe
o appearance or walk of the captain
that led to this opinion.     The captain
teemed to be pulling himself together,  aa a state church,
been on the bridge with the pilot
swore that the pilot had not been
drinking, at least he could not notice
liquor ou him. The evidence of the
bartender wa; to the effect that the captain only had one drink at bar ou the
night of the aceidnt. Two bottles of
.Scoteh whiskey went to the saloon for
a party of about a dozen, including
the captain who was sitting there.
He saw the stewards calling the passengers by knocking at thoir doors."
Victoria, Sept. 20.���Clifford Constable, a passenger who came around
the Horn on the sailing ship Alexander Black, has made startling oharges
against the mate and steward. He
had differences with them and alleges
tnat they compelled him to strip in a
howling snow 6torm and chased him
around the capt an until he was exhausted He also charges that he was
beaten over the head and otherwise
grossly maltreated. They compelled
him to stand naked on a spar; the
mate threatened to beat him off and
he fell off. Several of the erew were
fined yesterday for beating an apprentice on the same voyage. Superintendent Hussey has charge of Constable's

New York,Sept.20.���One of the biggest crowds that evei put to sea went
down to the Sandy Honk lightship today to witness Sir Thomas Lipton's
seoond challenger, Shamrock II, and
the white flyer, Columbia,which successfully defended tbe America's cup
against his first trophy hunter two
years ago, i.i the struggle fur the
yachting supremacy of the world. But
the excursion iieet returned disappointed. Tho groat single stickers
went out this morning fresh for the
battle, but the sea refused them a Hold
of conflict. The wind, which was
never more than nine and some times
as low as three knots, was too light
and shifty to carry tho contestants
over tbe 30 mile course in tho time
allotted by the rules. At the end of
live and one half hours���the prescribed time���tho race was officially declared off and they each were towed
back to their berths inside of Sandy
Hook. When tho gun aboard tiie
committee boat was fired to call attention to the signal declaring the race
off, the American boat was still sevon
miles from the finish line. Tho
Englishman was hull down asteru of
her, the oxpertB estimating her distance behind the Columbia at over
three-quarters of a mile,
Americans will have reasons to congratulate themselves upon the result
of the first trial. The yacht which
carried J. Pierpont Morgan's private
signal, a black pennant with a yellow
Maltese oross, to victory two years
ago was beaded but once in the 23
miles covered and then tbo Englishman showed '.he way for only five
minutes. In windward wcrk the
Columbia beat the foreigner 7 min.
IB sec. to the outer mark and increased her lead somewhat iu tho broad
reach for home. While the test was
unsatisfactory, the yachting shaip
who haB boen skeptical up to this time
as to the ability of the Columbia to
successfully defend the oup, are more
confident tonight that it will remain
on this side of the Atlantic yet a
while longer. Certainly the Columbia's superiority in light airs appears
to bave been demonstrated today.
The Shamrock II. did not in fact
make ��o good a showing as did Lip-
ton's Hist challenger in the half
dozen ilnkes that preceeded the actual
races two years ago.
What the Shamrock may be able to
do in heavy weather is of oourse
problematical but the Columbia has
been tried and all her admirers insist
that sho is distinctly a heavy weather
Two years ago Sir Thomas' piaver
was for wind, but when lie got a 2.1
knot gale in tho last race the Columbia's victory was even moro decisive
than in the first. Since then the
Columbia 'a ability in heavy weather
has been proved and the harder it
blows the faster Bhe goes and the better she behaves. The day had promised well at first. A strong northeast
wind had been blowing for two days
and bad piled up wbat the sailor men
called a nasty lump of sea outside and
before the race began was whipping
the foam off the crest of waves. The
procession tbat sailed out of New
York harbor anticipated a lino day's
sport. (Magnificent and palatial steam
yachts, steamers aud excursion boats
were lined tier above tier with
people, The big racers had already
been towed out and when the fleet arrived they wore circling and wheeling
like great gulls about tbe lightship.
The polished bronze hull of Shamrock,
gleaming and glistening in tho brilliant sun, made ber look like a craft of
gold, a yoMow breasted gull with
white pinions spreading.     Tho white
I revenue cuttois and yachts of the
j patrol fleet, marshalled the excursion
I fleet bub ind the line. Shortly before
ill o'clock a big tug ilying the blue
I Hag of the Regatta committee puffed
up to thu fleet, measured off tlie 21)0
yards starting line from the lightship,
let her anchor go and then hoisted
the signal ndieating that the course
would be cast by north ir, miles
straight into tbo eye of the wind and
return. Thuo another big tug started
off straight out to Long Island shore
and sot tbo outer mark. No account
was taken of the tide so that the
course was nearer 17 than 1.1 nautical
miles. Five minutes before 11 o'clock
the preparatory signal for tho race
hBd been given. Then bogau the
joekeying behind tho line of which
Charlie Barr, tlie eminent skipper has
proved himself so many times a grand
master. lie got into the windward
berth and try as the Englishman
would, he could not shake him off.
As the red hall which marked the
warning signal was hoisted 1(1
minutes later, tho English skipper in
despair put up his tiller, crossed the
line and tacked about the lightship,
but tho Columbia hung to him as if
one tiller were acting for the two,and
when they again raced for the line it
was like two thoroughbred horses,
neck and neck, but Ilarr was still to
windward. The fascinating game the
two skippers were fighting was so in-
tnsc that both miscalculated the time
and crossed the line 30 seconds before
the starting gnu was fired. Three
blasts of the whistle sounded the recall. The two big canvas clouded
racers wore around as if turning on
their heels and coming up again in
the smoke of the gun fled away acrosB
the lino both on the starboard tack
but Columbia a half length in the
lead, and a length to windward.
Both carried tbe same sails, main
club topsail, jib and baby jib. Then
for ten miles down the Long Island
shore in plain view of tlie people there
the two big single stickers smashed
into tbe head seas, sending spray
smoking to their cross treeB. Strain
as the Shamrock would she could not
hold her white rival even. Slowly
but surely Columbia forged ahead,
pointing higher and footing faster.
Shamrock tacked and tacked again
but Columbia wont about with her
each time and appeared to be more
nimble. Time and ngain tbe experts
saw she was quioker in stays by it)
Tbe beat down the Long Island
coast made a beautiful maiine spectacle. The patrol fleet under the direction of Captain Walker of the revenue
cutter service maintained a perfectly
clear Hold. Half a mile of revenue
cutters and yachts at au angle of four
points from eaoh sido of the course
formed a right angle, changing dueo-
tion as the yachts tacked. Ir. the
hollow of this angle as if in a fence
corner there wa6 no moro interference
with the yachts than if they had been
sailing in the middle of the Atlantic
while behind tho feuco on eithor side
were the solid moving lines of bulls,
rail to rail their smoking stacks niak*
ing a black wall above them. On
into the bucking seas the yacnts
went, spurting great goysors from the
sharp bows. The Amorlcan was undoubtedly the prettier boat. Her sky-
scraping club topsail was not so high
by eight feet as that of her rival, but
she appeared more stately and graceful.
The slender hulls of the racing machines looked too frail to carry the
canvas which towered above them.
Over 190 'eet above il c water lire, a
I height equal so fl modern building,
I Ihe slender top   mast of the Shamrock
lifted a pyramid of canvas,but her 13
Square feet more of canvas than the
j Columbia carried did not make hor
overtake the white beauty,
i It was dlreotly off Long Ileaob
hotel, wilh its crowded piazzas that
I the Shamrock showed in front for the
j first and only timo during the day.
I As tbe wind bad hauled mure to the
Isouthward and bad died down somewhat, Charlie Barr hugged the Columbia olf shore in the hopu of meeting a
corning breeze but instead be poked
his nose in a dead calm and for some
minutes he lay with sails flapping,
while the Shamrock catching a slant
of wind nearor shore drew rapidly
ahead. But the victory was short
lived. The Columbia rapidly overtook
ber adversary und Captain Sycamore
in desperation concluded to press on
.more canvas by trying a larger jin
topsail. While the sailors weie out
on Ibe bowsprit taking in the old and
bending on the larger sail,the Colum
bin went by the Shamrock as if she
had boen moored to the duel;. From
that timo to the outer mark the Columbia gained stoadily. As they ap
preached the turning the excursion
fleet going at full speed sided out and
massed beyond the mark to witness
the turn. As she came alongside,
leaving tho mark on the starboard
hand, Harr put his helm bard down
and lulled around. Then she tilled a
way. Her great ballon) jib broke out
like a pud' of smuko, her boom was
ease off and she was away for home
ou a broad reach.
The fleet courteously waited until
the Shamrock rounded seven minutes
and 15 seconds later and gave her a
eoidlal reception. From that time on
it was a procession not a race. The
Enlgisbman tried half a dozen bead
sails in the hope of improving his
position but tho American forged
ahead steadily. Then the wind which
had been seven knots at the stako boat
died down and io an houi before the
time limit expired it was evident that
thc yachts could not finish in time.
When the committee boat finally
hoisted her signals declaring ''No
race," the big excursion fleet beaded
back for New Y. ������!*.
The steam yacht Erin with Sir
Thomas and his party aboard remained alongside the challenger and escorted her to her anchorage. Under
tho rules of an unfinished race, the
race will bo resumed on Saturday and
the eouise will be again ir, miles to
windward or leeward and return.

sides of the eity. The London crowds
gathered chiefly on the embankment

with the varying positions of the
yachts. Steam launches carrying tlu-
same colors and patrolling tbe Thames

also served to keep the eager n.ultitue
in touch with the tians-Atlantie contest.     Thousands of persons   gathered
while constant bulletins at the leading hotels supplied the news to hundreds of others. Among the masses
gathered on the embankment the
keenest disappointment was evinced.
ICvidontly they hud expected the challenger to cntdo the defender under
any conditions Tne :,porting clubs
announced a very small uinount of
wagers. King Edward displayed great
interest and was kept posted us to
every movement of tiie yachts.
Tho morning papers express the
keenest disappointment. The Iiaily
Mail, the Daily Graphic, the Morning
Post and tho Standard a,I contend
that tho weather conditions were too
lluky to justify any verdict on the
ultimate performances, but even the
same journals are not very hopeful of
the ability of the challenger to "lift"

It is evident that the Dominion government iB at last ready to give British Columbia representation in lhe
Federal cabinet. Tho growing importance of the province, as shown in the
increased population, the enlarged
production of tho mines, the fisheries,
the forests, and the extent of the
exports and imports have forced a
recognition which has long beon sued
for and one which for years has been
oue of the ungratitied ambitions of
the people.
What do we want a cabinet minister for? There are numerous teasons
why we want soch a representative.
In the first place it is most desirable
to have a friend at court and we nave
lacked that and as a result we have
not secured the favois whioh we most
earnestly desired. It is true that a
citizen of another province nominally
represents us and has done so to the
best of bis ability, but that is not
what is wanted What is desired is a
man who is a citizen of the province
and who knows the wants, the desires
and tho sentiment of every portion of
the province, and who has sufficient
personality and force to impresB upon
his colleagues In the ministry that
what be advocates are crying needs
and pressing necessities and tbat
they must be granted. Had there
beon such a representative at Ottawa
the oharter of the Kettle River Valley
railway would not have been refused
so many times and the people of the
lioundary would now be enjoying the
benefit of a competing railway; there
would be a better understanding at
the national capital than there ia of
Oriental immigrations aud some
feasible plan would long since have
been formulated and put into effect
to cheok the undesirat le class from
coming io; the assay oflloe at Vancou
ver would have been established at
least two years sooner and the traffic
of the Yukon terriitory would have
been enjoyed more largely by Vancouver and Victoria, than it is, instead of
going to the American cities; the mining industry, too, would have been
greatly benefited by having a cabinet
minister from Hritish Columbia to
look alter its interests at Ottawa.
Tho position being such an important one it ia essential that it be filled
by someone who iB thoroughly in
touch with overy section of the province and its varied and important
interests. In tho selection of such a
man mere local ambitions should be
lost sight of and be sunk to the end
that the very best man possible should
seenre thc place. Great care and caution Bhould therefore be exercised to
the end that an individual be selected
who will look after the interests of
the entire province, instead of merely
a seotion of it. A more island man,
or mainland man, or a Kcotenay
man, ia not wanted, but a provincial
man in whom tbe peoplo of every portion uf the province will have the
fullest confidence and who at the same
time by his ability and wisdom, will
command tho respect and confidence of
his colleagues in the Federal cabinet,
so that when he speaks thoy will listen and he willing to concede to him
whon ho aslis fur anything that may
reasonably be *.-iveti. Some diillculty
will be experienced in finding such a

is so serious as tc constitute a menaoe
to the well being of the industry. So
far as the press generally is concerned
it has been as faithful, as true and as
devoted to tbe best interests of tho
mining industry as it is possible for
it to be. No good that it could do for
it has been overlooked and it has subordinated every other feature of its
news to give prominence to anything
that is thought would aid in the advancement of the industry. This has
been so much the case that men en
gaged in linea outside of mining
have complained at times that too
much prominence was given to the
mining news, and thai their interests
should be looked after equally well
The reply of tho newspaper publisher
has been that the mining was the
main industry and Btay of the country
and that if it prospered all other lines
would do likewise and, therefore, it
was essential that lt be' kept to the
forefront in all of the newspapers.
Tbis has been done steadily evei
since the first journal was established
in the Kootenays and will continue t<
be the practice as long as thete is an\
necessity for it. It has resulted in the
bringing of a great deal of the capital
here which is now invested in mining
enterprises and will continue to have
tbe same result. It is necessary to
call attention to tbe advantages whioh
this seotion offers through the newspapers for if tbe practise was discontinued here otber Bections would keep
it up so that in time this country
would be neglected through lack of
knowledge oncoming it.
Tho newspapers here have carried
on this missionary work with scarcely
any prospect of present profit hoping
when the mines were better developed
that they would then harvest some of
thc good seed which they had sown
Under the circumstances the talk of
the Sandon Mining Review about the
country not having a proper press is
entirely uncalled for.
Tho Sandon Mining Iioview says if
the country had proper legislation and
a proper press 8,000 men would be employed around Sandon instead of 300,
This is a sad tonod wall unsu-.ual in the
press of the Kootnnays and Yals,
which are in the main inclined to look
on the silver-lined side of the cloud.
The mining business, particularly in
its infancy, is largely made up of
hope and the man who is not of a
sanguine disposition should not follow
either the business of mining or of
running a newspaper in a mining
country, becua.su he is out of his element and cannot bear with philosophy
the n|.s and downs incident to a lif��
in a mining section. While it is true
that, the legislature has made some
mistakes in its endeavor to exercise
too much paternalism over tbo mining I
industry and in taxing it more than ���
should have been the case during its
infancy, still the mistakes have not'
been   fatal   and the   bad work can be
revoked   if it is found tbat  the  barm
The crusade which was commenced
some time since, against rough play
and fouling in lacrosse la having a
good effect on tbo game aud matches
are played in which all the players
leave the field without wounds. This
is n welcome change for tbe better
and ono whioh should be kept up for
the sake of the reputation of the
national game of Canada. Thore was
no necessity for tho rough play which
was a characteristic of lacrosse for a
timo an:! the playors aro to be congratulated that they have adopted a
better course and one which will meot
with the full approval of tho patrons
of the game. The Viotoria Iiaily
Times in commenting on a game
recently piayed iu that city spoke
as follows of the gentlemanly and fair
manner in which the players conducted themselves, although the home
team was defeated : "Victorians did
not win thu laciosso game on Saturday, but they gave un exhibition
igainst the stalwarts from New Westminster of which thoy had no reason
to feel ashamed. It was a match
worth going a long way to see, because It was contested in the spirit
which we hope to sec maintained in
all Canadian sports. It was not rough
and it was fast. Our young men did
not take advantage of the faot that
the game was played on their grounds
to do their best to maim, lay out or
disfigure their opponents. Tbe whole
of the stalwart twenty-four are in
shape for business today. Not one of
tbem carries about his person indications of a 'go' with a professional pug
or of a mix-up in a bicycle'misundor-
standing.' The Hritish spirit of fair
play was in evidence from beginning
to end. We hope it will always be
maintained in our Hritish Columbia
sportB. In that case laorusae will en-
ii'ne   in Canada,   as   cricket   has  in
England, through all the revolutions
and changes of public opinion. Let
baseball games be decided by trickery,
such as cutting bases when the umpire is not looking, trying to 'rattle'
the pitcher, or any one of the hundreds of schemes which havo been
devised by ' King' Kelly and his clever
successors on tbe diamond, but let us
stick to our old-fashioned theories
that the fun lies in seeing the best
men or the best teams win."
The Toronto Telegram is not satis
fied with the recent distribution of
honors among Canadians, and says
that the honors which have just been
announced, like the gentle rain from
heaven, fall alike on the deserving
and the undeserving, on the just and
tbe unjust. Had the editor of the
Telegram been allowed to distribute a
like number of honors he T.ould piob-
ably have been subjected to much the
same criticism, as it is impossible in
a case like the conferring of knighthoods to please everybody.
The Military Mail of London,
Eng., says: "The South African war
still lingers on, and at times blazca
up In a rather unpleasant manner.
To what is this state of things due?
To the incapacity of the leadors or
the slackness of the men? To neithir.
The plain fact of the matter ia���and
it is quite time for plain speaking--
tbat for the last twelve months Lord
Kitchener and the army in South
Africa have been made tbe catspaw
of a week-kneed Government at home.
Military requiremets have time and
again been subordinated to the fears
of the cabinet of offending sections
of public opinion���or what passes for
snch���at home. 'Willing to wound,
yet afraid to strike' might well
describe the attitude of this present
ministry. Wavering and inconstant as
tbe summer wind, the Government
have at one moment summoned up
courage enough to give to Lord Kitchener tbat free band which should
never have been withheld from him
No sooner has this been done than a
clamor from the noisy, oorrupt band,
which is lumped together as 'Pro-
Boers, ' than they have executed a
volte-face and endeavored to conduct
war in the same manner that they
would drink tea in a drawing room.
The 'Hotel Cecil1 may be brilliant in
times of peace, but even their most
ardent supporters would hesitate to
urge that the���or any membera of the
cabal���are 'giants in war."'

Silver Hll! Mines Sell  the
Trail Smelter That
Expect to Average Fifty Tons
of High Grade Ore
II. ('. Kililet, of Nelson, who has
the contract for erecting the tramway
from the mines o.' the London aud
Kicblieu Mining and Smelting' company, on Silver Hill, to the wagon
road, is rushing work with all possi
ble speed and expects to have it completed by December 15th. It will be
10,1100 feet long, and will much facilitate the transportation of oie to
The Richlieu company and the
Loudon Consolidated were amalgamated into oa= company a shortjtinie
ago, and now the properties of tho
new oompauy are quite extensive,
with a great doal of work done oc
them. The wagon road, extending
about nine miles np from Crawford
bay towards the minos, is a very good
one, and whon the trawmay is completed the ore will be conveyed by it
to the end of the road, whence it
will be hauled in sleighs to the
steamer landing. It is expected that
mi average output of no tons per day
can be maintained.
Dry ores are now In demand by the
smelter,,, and this has a very important significance to the London and
Richelieu compnny as on the last ore
it shipped a smeltoi rato of almost 814
had to be paid. Tho company has
jn*,t dosed a contract with the Trail
smelter to treat 15,000 tons at 87 per
ton for freight and treatment on the
ore landed at Crawford bay. As tho
ore from .Silver Hill, as that camp is
called, runs from $100 to $125 per ton
In value, the company is now in a
very gratifying position.
Development work is in progress on
tho Great Dane, the Commonwealth
and other adjacent properties which
are all showing up well so that Crawford bay promises soon to be the scene
of considerable activity.
This coinpnny has in view the con
Btruction of a smelter at Crawford
bay, which seems to be particularly
well adapted for that pnipose. It
would be central to, and in easy communication with all the mining camps
tributary to Kootonay lake. It
would, of course, be primarily intended for London and Richelieu ores, and
would not bo undertaken until thc
construction of a railway from the
bay to the mines is arranged for, but
as soon ns that Is none, the building
of a smelter will probably soon
A week or two ago a carload of 21
tons of ore wus shipped from the
Capella, the Goat mountain property
recently purchased by Wills & McNaught, says the New Denver Ledge.
After paying a freight and treatment
rate of So a ton, the ore gave returns
ot $3,006. Such returns will have a
tendency to wake up oapital with its
eyes toward Goat Mountain. The
Capella is a dry ore property, and is
the only oue on tho mountain that
lias been developed to any extent.
Ihe oro that was shipped was taken
from tho tunnel that is being run on
the lead. The ore was enoountered
shortly after the tunnel was Btarted,
and has been continuous for about 150
feet. No stoping has beon done. Tbe
tunnel is being pushed ahead, and another BhIpment is being taken out as
WOrkpruoeeds, The Capella Is indeed a
poor man's property. It is less than
a mile from Now Denver, and can be
worked the year around. Tho ore will
���vemge $800 a ton, and the payshoot
l��i without doubt, tho best that has
been opened up in New Denver's dry
ore belt.

He Tolls About the Townsite of Car
negie in the Simikaraeen.
John Meikeljohn of Greenwood is
in the uity on a business visit. He is
here for tbo purpose of completing
the sale of certain of the shares to the
townsite syndicate of Carnegie. The
latter is located in the heart of the
gold-copper mining region of the
.Similkameen. Tne Nickel Piute mine
which is owned by the Marcus Daly
estate, is only three miles from Carnegie. About 50 men are employed
on tho Nickel late in developing a 40
foot ledge of arsenical iron carrying
pay gold values. There is considerable
ore sacked at this mine which it is
said will run several thousand dollars
to tho ton. There are a number of
other properties in Hedley camp in
whioh the Nickel Plate is locatod.
Nelson people havo large intorests in
Hedley camp. Among theso is the
Uollo, lianner and some othor properties. They aro being developed with
good result. Riordan mountain, two
miles notthonBt of Carnegie, has several promising properties. The chief
of these is the After Thought owned
by James Uiordan and the Keremeos
Mining syndicate. Tho After
Thought, the Hilly Goat and the
Shamrock, which aro owned by the
same people have been bonded to a
New York syndicate and are to be
developed immediately. Plerson
mountain, Apex summit, Ited Mountain, Iron Mountain, Vanillism and
Stevenson's camps are among those
tributary to Caruegio. Mr. Meiklo-
john reports that he has been very
successful *n disposing of the syndicate shares and is certain that the
profits out of tho venture will be
large. Ho is a guest at the Phair
hotel and will bo here until Saturday
nhen he expects to close the deal and
proceed to Similkameen with a survey
party for tho purpose of surveying tho
Caruegio townsite, as a preliminary
to securing a orown grant.

Special Features of the
Florence   Hot   Blast
Our New Idea Deflector Fire Pot greatly increases the heating capacity of the stove, and in connection with the deflector ring forces the
heat to the lloor. The base is hot, the floor being warmer than W'th a
base burner.
The Hot Blast Attachment takes in the cold air through a duct at the
rear of the fire pot, the heated air being discharged in a circle at the top
of lire pot, over fire, thus consuming all the gases and products of combustion. It can be operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently, by a screw register in the rear of base, insuring complete
control of the stcve 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 maiket. The stove will hold fire from
24 to 48 hours without attention.

FaFsersby on Stanley street near

o'clock were surpiised to see two
Chinamen iun swifty down Stanley
streot followed ny I'oundkoeper Mc
Gregor in hot pursuit. At tbe corner
of Victoria street oue of the China'
men, a most peculiar looking,oue*eyed
Celestial -named Yung Ding, was over
taken hy the pouudkeeper who tried
to force him along toward the city
hull. A scuttle ensued in which the
Chinaman's clothing, being old and
ragged, suffered considerably, and
finding his captor too strong for him
ho threw himself Hat on the ground
and seizing a projecting plank hung
on for dear life, nt the same tie yelling at the top of his voice, evidently
being under the impression tbis his
other eye was to he out out or other
sanguinary punishment inflicted, fur
,i forgotten sin. Fortunately for Yung
Ding,a Chineso cook from a house near
by came up and acted as interpreter,
and explained that all they wanted
was his name and address and for
him to cease carrying slops in opm
vessels along the public streets, for it
was foi an infraction of the new by
law relating to such matters that the
poundkeeper had endeavored to take
the Chinamen along. Chief of Police
Jarvis arrived about the same timo as
the iulorproter and the Chinaman at
once went along with him to the
station, where his name and address
wore taken.

Thinks a Conspiracy Exists to Deprive
Him of Bis Property.
Joseph Vogel will be sent from the
provincial jail today to thc aslyum ut
New Westminster. He is one of tha
pioneers of Kossland and is the owner
of several mineral claims thero some
of which are promising and is in
fairly good cicumstances. He imagines that people are endeavoring to
cheat bim out of his properties and
that a conspiracy exists to put him
uut of the way for that purpose.
Among other things he alleges that he
baB been shot at on several occasions
by the conspirators who desire to
secure his possessions. In other
matters he has a wonderfully keen
memory aDd can recall scenes and incidents of long ago and describe them
as accurately as though they happened
yesterday. Hl�� memory as to business
"transactions is faultless and he can
tell the day and the amount for which
he gave receipts in transactions iu
which be was involved months or
vears ago. Since he has been an inmate of the Nelsou jail he has refused
to partake of the prison fare, alleging
that it contained poison. Mr. Lemon
fearing that he would starve gave him
meals fiom his own table or sent out
to the restaurant for them, and he
partook heartily of these A day or
two since, after he had partaken of a
meal which came from a restaurant,
be declared that it had been doped.
In order to humor liim Mr. Lemon let
him watch the waiter who brought the
meal, so that he might see that no
oue tampered with It. This satisfied
Vogel and he has since then consumed
all the meals which have come from
the restanrant, but he stills draws
the line on prison fare. It is thought
a few months in the asylum under
soientific care will restore him to his
mental balance.
