Several of tho native Japanese papers
appeared with tinned rules on the day
owing to the receipt of the news of
the death of President McKinley and
all contained columns expressing
regret at the loss the eountrythad sustained. "Iho Jim 111 in says*. "All civilized nations must mourn his loss,

this afternoon commenced work in the

Inspector Morgan, after testing the

at Extension shaft, expressed the
opinion that the lire in tho mine had

This company owns the Velvet and
adjoining claims on Sophia mountain,
southwest of Rossland. Hy means
familiar to stock brokers the price of
the stock was gradually pushed np to
��2 ptr share, a premium of 100 per
cent. Tho manipulators accomplished
their objeet and now tho stock has
fallen to 15 shillings. Tho condition
of tlie mine and its prospects have
steadily improved in the meantime so
that there is nothing alarming from
a mining point of view in these fine
tuations. The Velvet has added a
largo amount of plant to ils equipment during the past summer and
whon the spur of the railway is built

New York, Oct. 2.���Yachting ex
ports and the general public are tonigiit expecting a most exciting race
tomorrow. Thoy baso thoir high
hopes on the strong wind blowing
today and which the local weather
piophet asserts is likely to keep up
for 21 hours or moro. The Washington weal her bureau adds to the expectation whicli il is hoped will bo real-
ized.by holding out a promise of a
strong breeze off Sandy Hook. The
bureau says: Fresh northwest winds
and fair weather oil Sandy Hook lor
tomorrow. The wind ought to hold
good throughout tho day.
At Sandy Hook tonight, everything
is ready for tomorrow's race and if
the weather predictions prove true,the
yachts will have plenty of wind, perhaps more than they want. At 9.30
tonight thu wind shifted suddenly in
a squall trom south to northwest and
began to blow hard from that quarter.
At 10 it haC. a Velocity of HO miles an
hou i.
While it was a quiet, day with the
yachts lying at their moorings inside
Sandy Hook bay, the officials of New
York Y'acht and Royal Ulster Yacht
clubs had a busy time of it in coin-
plying with the request of Sir Thomas
hacked by the assent of Mr. Morgan
of tbo Columbia, that in future the
racos should be held on consecutivo
days, not counting Sunday. Iu addition there came the request from Geo.
I.. Watson, the designor of Shamrock
11., for reinoasurcniont because of his
intention to take out ballast before
tomorrow's raco. On the first proposition an agreement was finally
reached between the challenge committee of tho clubs for a race every
day,[.but on the second, Mr. Watson
after further considering tlie matter
decided to let it drop, nnd the yacht
will sail tomorrow with exaotly tho
saino amount of ballast whicli she has
carried in previous races. This will
not prevent Mr. Watson from taking
out ballast al nny tune he may wish
which of course, tho club is willing
to have done at any time. If, how-
over, after tomonow's race, Mr. Wat.
son decides to take out ballast, it is
probable that thero will be no race on
Friday, as under the now arrangements, either yacht is at liberty to decline to race on the next day.
SCOTSMEN WILL TRY NEXT.
Glasgow, Oct. 2.���It is said here
that if tho Shamrock is not successful
in the present series of races for
America's cup, a west of Scotland
syndicate is prepared to issuo another

DETAILS OF BRITISH   VICTORY.
London, Oct. 2.���The Hoer reverse
al Moedall occurred on September
2!)th. Tho Boers aro repotted to have
been 1,000 strong Lord Kitchener in
his despatch says the British repelled
the attack with great vigor. Aflor
the close of tho fighting Col. Kcke
wich was slightly wounded in two
places. Ilo says that all ranks behaved
extremely well.
The woundod were taken to Ruslen-
berg half way betwen Pretoria and
Mafeking. Lord Kitchener confirms
the heavy losss of the Poers. About
250 were killed and ,1ii(i wounded during thou* attack on the forts nt
Italia. There is a prospect, he says of
tho guns recently captured at Vlak-
fontein boing
lioors.
Montreal, Oct. 2.���The annual meeting of the shareholders of tho Canadian Pacific railway company wns
held today and the old board was reelected unanimously. In moving the
adoption of the report President Sir
Thomas Shaughnessy directed attention to tho excellent result of the
operations tho past fiscal yoar notwithstanding tho loss oi icvcnuo resulting from the serious shrinkage of
the grain crops nf northwestern
Canada last autumn by unfavorable
weather. The grain tonnage of Manitoba and the northwest was only one-
third thai of 1800, and according to
authentic reports loss than one-fifth
the tonnage of the crop just harvested.
A few years ago such a series injury to the crops would have hud a
disastrous effect upon tho company's
revenue, therefore, the development of
other traffic in sullicient volume to
materially reduce tiie comparative
importance of tbo grain business as a
factor in tho gross earnings, was most
gratifying.
As indicated by the annual report
on the land grant bonds tlie amount
of $128,500 had been redeemed and
cancelled since last meeting. The
directors oxpect to reduce the outstanding bonds by a still larger
amount dining tbe current year; land
sales for tbe past three months being
75 per cent in excess of the corresponding period of last year. None of
these sales was in large blocks.
The desirability of making provision for the pensioning of officers and
employees, who after long service
become incapacitated by reason of advanced age, has suggested the propriety of asking consent that !jl!'50,000
be sot aside as a nucleus of a pension
fund as soon as the directors succeeded in formulating a feasible plan o!
administration. It was hoped that
this would be accomplished shortly
but the large number of employees
and Iho varied conditions of service
make it nocessary that details of tho
scheme should rocoUo the gravest consideration before being put in operation. The president expressed for the
directors their appreciation of the
zeal and fidelity of the officers and
employees in the performance of the
duties during, in some respects, most
trying years.
The leases of thc Kootenay Sc Arrowhead railway, the Vanoouvcr &
Lulu Island railway, and the Hritish
Columbia Southern railway were approved, also the traffic agreement between the Canadian l'aoific and tho
Duluth, South Shore & Atlantic, nnd
Mineral Range railways.
The issue of debentures on stock
account for thirty miles of branch
linos in Manitoba was authorized not
tc exceed 815,0(10 a mile, and (1860,000
was set aside for a pension tund,
The meeting was mado special, and
a iesolution was passed authorizing
tbe issue of S. S. bonds not to exceed
��180,000.
At a mooting of the new board, Sir
Win. VanHorne was re-elected chairman of the hoard, and Sir Thomas G.
Shauglinossy, president of the
00X9 pany.
Henry Roy, general manager of the
London and Richelieu Consolidated
Mining oompany was at the l'hair
yesterday, having just returned from
a visit to the properties of tho compuny near Crawford Hay. Mr. Roy
reports that Mr. Riblet has a large
force of men at work clearing a right
of way so feot wide for Iho aerial
tram which is to transport the ore
from the mines of tho company down
the slope to the end of tho wagon
road, whioh leads In Crawford Bay.
I' or 25 feet on each side of the 80 leet
all leaning trees that might endanger
the tramway and poles for the tramway aie also being cut and made
ready. In the meanwhile the buckets
and other portions of the tramway are
boing constructed at the Riblet factory in this city Mr. Roy says that
work will bo pushed on the building
of the tramway lo the end that
commencing the delivery of too 15,000
tons of ore contracted to be delivered
to tho Trail smelter may bo began at
the earliest possible moment. The
*>vagon road from Crawford bay to
what will bo the terminus on the
trawmay has been repaired and is in
Hist class condition for hauling loads
over.
Mr. Roy says that good mports
come from the Oregon group, which
is located on tho summit above the
minus of the London and Richelieu
coinpany. The group is owned by
Messrs. Johnson, Clark and Workman.
Cabins have been erected and the
work of development is in full swing
with promising results. The ore
carries gold, silver, copper aud lead
and is of a pay grade.

Toronto, Oct. 2.���Mrs. Minnie
Woods, today was found guilty of
bigamy. Sho is a Hritish sujbcct,
Sho married a man named Burkardt,
who secured a divorco from her in
Michigan on tlie grounds of extreme
cruelty. She then married a man
named l'endnll. Tho judge charged
the jury citing tho Rns.se 1 case, that
Hritish law did not recognize American divorces obtained by Hritish subjects on the grounds that that would
not be sufficient in England.
At the Silver King mine it is said
that, tho developments are progressing
favorably. On the 000-foot level,
whero a tunnol is being run, it is expected that ore will be struck within
another day or two. From the six and
eight, hundred foot levels the ore is
being shipped daily, and with the
completion of tho tunnel at the 000-
foot lev3l the mine will be in shape
to turn out considerably largor daily
shipments than is the case at present,
although the amount sent out now
eaoh day is said to be the largest in
tho history of the mine.
A. F. Rosenbsrger left for Cam-
borne yesterday to look after tho development of the Camborne and
Oyster groups on which a force of
men aro to bo put to work at once.
As these propertiis are owned principally by Nelson men a good deal of
interest is felt as to what showing
will be madu this season. The ore so
tar exposed in the work that has been
done is very rich in free gold and the
samples that have been on exhibition
in Nelson for some lime have evoked
much interest.
At the Poorman mine at preseut
about twenty men are oinployed, roost
of whom are at work prepaiing for

company will disorganize ami reincorporate as an assessable company
with its old capitalization of 1,250,000
shares of a par value of 10 cents per
share. Tbe new company will give
oue share of stoek for each share in
the old company upon the surrender of
the old stock.
At the meeting of the stockholders
held looently 000,000 shares of stock
wore represented and voted by actual
holders or by proxy.
The amount for whicli the stock is
assessable is fuur cents per share,payable at a rate not to exceed two mills
per share per month. This assessment
will bring tbe company $50,000, and
it was the belief of tho stockholders
reptescnted at the meeting that not
more than ono half of this amount
would be needed to demonstrate that
they had a mine on a dividend paying
basis.
The Waterloo property is located in
Camp MaKinney. Within the past
year the stock lias mercurialized in
pi ieo from ono cent per share to 1:'
cent, and brokers consider it one of
the most widely disseminated stocks
on the local market.
The ore is similar to that of tin*
Cariboo, in the same camp. Thc vein
has faulted repeatedly, necessitating
considerable extra work. Tho rcojnt
reports from the property are said to
bo favorable, and although the mine
has beon idle for some time, tbo management is sangoine that a few weeks
will place the propeity in f,ood shape.
The new Nelson-Granite wagon road
makes a considerable difference in the
cost of getting in supplies not only lo
them hut to all the claim owners in
the neighborhood as tho distance to
park supplies has been greatly
diminished.

ab
WOBDt) OF WISDON.
Al Regina His Boysl Highness the
Duke of Corowsli and York said
among other things: "Contrast!eg
th<* free, healthy and u��'.'fii] life,
which is enjoyd in this country, with
the narrow, and alas: too often unwholesome existence of the thousands
in our great cities al bom*, one cannot help wishing thai the prospects
here ofored, wtrc more widely known
and more freely taken advantage of."
In this sentence the heir apparent
sounded a cole of greal importance
to Canada and the empire. In the
Urge centres of the British Isles, in
London. Manchester, Glasgow, Dublin
and Liverpool there are thousands
who aro simply eking out an existence
and are in a condition which it is
most difficult for tbem to better themselves, because of tbe lack of opportunities.
Many hnve ab 'he Duke says a
"narrow and unwholesome existence,'1 winch is simply the result of
overpopulation. The condition of
many of tbe dwellers in tbe tenement
rjnarter in these greal cities is deplorable. These would, therefore, wiil-
inglv change their present habitations
for the "free healthy and useful life"
offered in Canada. A majority of
those wbo escape from the narrowed
conditions and lack of opportunities
which exist in the Mother Country by
emjgiating go to other countries than
Canada, and ihey do this because of a
lack of knowledge of the splendid op.
portunlties which Canada offers
them. It is certain that moie would
seek homes lure if they understood
the situation better. More of an effort
should be made to give those intending to emigrate from the Mother
Country a knowledge of Canada and
of the chances hereof not only making a living Inn of pulling aivay
something for a rainy day, and, perhaps, making aftei a few years of
energetic effort a fortune.
line result of the lour of   the    Duke
and Duchess of Vork will   be   an   increased knowledge of Canada io Great
Britian.      The   leading papers   there
havo  representatives   with tbe party,
antl   they    will send   across the water
many     and      varied     descriptions   of
Canada and 'ts resources.    As the trip
of the royal party i*. a   transcontinental one tho favors distributed will   be
general, as nearly all the well settled
portions   of   the   Dominion   will   be
visited and described.   The advertisement      which   Canada     will    receive
through    the   royal visit should be of
great    benefit.        II     the     visit   will
*���    result in tin- inducing a fcw thousand
to leave "a   narrowed   and   unwholesome existence'' for one tbat is   "free
healthy and useful "it will havo done in
an lndirei.i tvij,  a great good for humanity.    The removal of a few thousand   from   amid    overcrowded   population   to    where   they   are needed to
settle anu develop a country would be
a consummation which,   if the  Dnbe
and Duchess felt lhat tbey bad a hand
in bringing   about,   oven   indirectly,
would certainly be a source of considerable   gratification to   them   personally.    It would be a    benefit   to   both
Great Britain .-uid Canada.
So far as the province of British
Columbia is concerned its chances of
securing a larger portion of the out
llowing tide Of British emigration
will from now on Le linger than ever.
Hon. .1. II. Tumor, ex-premior, leaves
Victoria today for London for the
pirposo   of     taking   ll.e   position   of
agent-general of tbe province there.
Mr. Tumor is an able man and has a
close and char knowledge of the
resources of tiie province,gained while
in business, while in ollice and by
trips made through its every portion.
He Is a man of ripe experience, splendid address and of more than ordinary
ability and it is certain that he will
make the best representative that the
proivnco has ever had in London. He
will make a hetttcr presentation of
tho merit! of tbe province than any
one else has as a desirable residence
place to the British public and will,
we believe, induce more people to
come tu this province than have any
of liis predecessors. A year or two
spent in the British metropolis will
serve to round off a useful career,
most of which has been spent in the
publie sei vice.

t.***n to what they" Maim is a fact, that
fltiancial panics fu. a thing of tbe
tr- : Id support of their contention
they assert tbat the development of
the community of interest idea bas
made impoibible thoso abnormal conditions which during tne last century
brought panics cn tbe country with all their attendant misfortunes. The tendency following the
assassination of President McKinley
was in the dirivtivn of a panic. 'Ibis.
it is claimed was aicrted promptly
by thc gieat financial intercuts of the
eountry co-operating with each other
which prevented sn extended scan-,
and those- who were inclined nn-fittingly to produce a panic by an
hysterical stampede were prevented
from so doing by thoso representing
tbe larger interests.
If this contention is true and far-
reaching and disastrous panics like
the one which commenced in 1893, and
the effects of which were felt in the
remotest part of tbe continent, can in
thc future be prevented it will mark
a new era in financial history. Doling the laet century panics were an-
ticpated In the ebb aud Uow of
trade to come regularly ; after a few
years of prosperity a panic was due
and this was followed by a period of
depression and then camo prosperity
again and at lt. heels was once more
a panic. If, therefore, the combined
financial interests of the United State"
by operating on tbe community of interest plan can prevent panics or even
minimize their baneful influence tney
i accomplish something which a
few year? since was thought to be impossible. Suppose, however, that a
cog should break in the community of
interest plan what then would be the
result? It is a poor rule that will
not work both ways, and if community of interest of the big financiers is
strong enough to prevent a panic wbat
would be the result suppose it was to
their interest to produce a panic? If
powerful enough to prevent they
would surely have streogth sufficient
to bring about a financial stringency
and precipitate a panic should it te
profitable to do so. It is tc be feared,
therefore,that the hopeful view which
tbe financial press of the eastern portion of the United States takes that
there will lie no more panics is a fallacious one.

A reply bas been made tn B. J.
I'recbeville, director of the f.e Roi
mine by the Miners' union of H<s*-
land, and several misstatements of
facts are pointed out in the lett'.cr
which be wrote anil in which he refused to secede to tho demands of the
anion. Late advice** indicate that
there is still a possibility, now that
the parties at Issue have a clearer conception of the standpoint of each and
that appeals Ion. ion have been made,
that a settlement may be arrived at.
Tbe strike will be Ibrce months old
in a few days and bv tjia time both
hides must be weary of tbe enforced
idleness. In view of this feeling and
the further fact that a mere reasonable spirit is being manifested it is
possible that meditation might bring
tbe trouble to a harmonious ooni'lu-
uiou. The former strike in the Rossland camp was settled tim.ugh the
intervention of tbe Dominion
and     the       Provincial     authorities.

mines,    and   Edmund li. Kirby, man
ager of the,War Eaglo and Centre Star,
resulted     in   tbe   settlement   of   the
strike, which was brought about principally through   the  objections of the
union to the   contract   system.      The
settlement was made on a   basts   that
allowed the miners to   take   contraHs
and   this   system   has   continued    in
rogue in the mines ever   since.      The
present should   be   an opportune time
for the Dominion and   tbe   provincial
authorities to Bend in representatives to
meditate and doubtless would it result
as it did before in bringing to a close
a strike, the continuation of which is
inimical to tbe best   interests   of   tbe
country.

The   cnttln   king    ol    Australia   is
Samuel McCanghey, nn Irishman, who
went to Australia in J**.r,i*. with piacti-
cilly   nothing,     His   possessions   are
the best   part   of   Australia.    One  of
his farms on the Darling Downs is   31!
miles wide and 411 miles    long.    Altogether he owns   more   than   1,000,000
acres   of   hind   and   leases   about    a
million or more.    His sheep flocks aro
larger than those of any other man in
the world.     Tho meat king of liritisli
Columbia   is   P. Burns who is also of
Irish extraction.    He began his caieer
with no other   capital but energy and
a     determination    to     succeed.     He
made   his   lirst   success in   supplying
with   meat the railway  camps during
the time   of   the   construction   of tbe
Canadian    Pacific   railway and   since
then   has   been steadily climbing the,
ladder of   foi tune.     Should he live to
be '.'0 years oldor he will be ono of tbo
richest,   men    in Canada, as he lias   a
business now which is very profitable.
Mr. Hums is a man of   groat energy
pays   the   closest attention to tho details of his business,    is   a  close   and
careful buyer, and besides has   executive ability of a high order.      With a
well organized and carefully conducted   business,    extending   as    it   doos
nearly all over Hritish   Columbia and
into Alberta, in the hands of so able a
malinger   it   is   difficult to   prophecy
what   the size   of his fortune will   be
in even a decade,    but it goes without
saying   that   it will   be   very   large,
when   it   is   considered    that   he     is
already among tile richer men of Western Canada.

"That this association declare itself
in favor of running Provincial elections on parly Hues:
"And further resolved that we communicate with all other Liberal Associations in the I'roivnce with tlio object of securing theii immediate cooperation, in order to make apparent
to the electors of the Province the
fixed determination of all Liberals,
and thus avoid complications which
would Undoubtedly arise should such
action by our association bo delayed;
whicli complications might postpone
the successful introduction ol party
lines into onr Provincial political
contesti."
"In addition to the above resolution
we need hardly suggest that the only
way that stable government, intlu
eneed' and guided hy definite principles, ns against every varying personal oi class interests, can bo obtained, is by party government. Such is
the aeo pted opinion of all well governed countries, and by such means
alone, we venture to believe, can this
Province be rescued from the chaotic
political condition which has existed
foi several years.
"Our Association bollevea that in
order to secure success it is necessary
that,without further delay, the whulo
electorate should understand tba position of our party on this question,
and as a result wo fesl confidant that
the Provincial Liberal party would at

political strength, and effectually
provent dangerous factions gaining
sueh ground as would make impossible, at a later date, the carrying out
of our desires upon tho lines named
above.
"We, therefore respectfully ictpiest

A Finn I NO STORY.
Adrenluros of Nelson Young Men
Told in Verse.
There is a beautiful spot, on the
Crow's Nest rail way, '.'���I miles from
Kootenay Landing, whither four of
Nelson's young men bad the pleasnio
of journeying a short time ago on a
fishing expedition. The following
poetical story was wiitten by one of
the participants in the excursion in
oommemoration of it:
"A FlSII(ing) STORY."
Four enthusiastic anglers
On a lovley August day,
To have a little lisbing
And wile the time away
Went tramping up the railroad
Uf the Crow's Nest, Pass, quite near
To a plneo they call "Gout River,"
Whore the water's cold and clear.
Finch one was well provided
With rods antl lots to eat.
And our old friend,"Pug," the leader,
W'll say, he did look neat,
As he trudged along that railroad
With a slow and easy gait;
And in a big red sweater shining
'Twould bo bard to find his mate.
At the start off "Pug" assured us
That the lish we'd catch np there
Were none of those small fellows
(But we took that as "Hot Air'')
That we'd caught along the waterfront
When business wasn't such
That, we bad to stay antl labor
And sweat to beat the Dutch.
After tramping up the river
With no success at. all
Except a few small minnows
If such they could be called;
We began to feel disoouraged
And each and every man
Decided that "Pug's" fishing-ground
Was never worth a d���.
In spite of  protestations
Which came from every one
lie still tried to persuade us
That, we'd bud a lot of fun.
But v here be got thac notion,
We've never jot found on",
Though he often calls to tell ns
That "Goat River's" full of trout.
To caleh onr train at Creston
We had to walk four miles.
And the sun,"Old Sol" they call him,
Si emed working overtime
By the way the perspiration
From onr bodies seemed to pour
Till    wc    reached     the     big   whito
tavern"
A*;d dropped down,  inside the door.
Then wo all without exeoptlon
Ordered something cool to drink.
What we got, we've all linen trying
Ever since, real hard tn think.
Hut ono thing we've, decided
.Should W9 ever meet the guys
That gave "Pug" that pool* whiskey
We'll blacken both their eyes.
Our "Pug" is a lino fellow,
And wo like him "awfully" well;
Hut next, limo he invites us
We hardly like to tell
All the trouble he'll got into,
And if he takes our advice.
He'll lind the fishing nearer home
As good, and just as nice.

Owned by and backed by the payroll
of tins Similiiiimceii Valley Coal Company, Ltd., situated on the hanks of
the Similkameen River and on the
land known as tlio Scott. Lamont ar.d
Stevenson ranches, in all about 1,300
acres, a portion of which has been
platted and known as Copperficld, by
Mr. Smith Uurtls. aud is now owned
by tho company, i
ashnola Is located in the centre of
the Similkameen Valley, about three
miles from Kennedy and Copper
mountains. These mountains are
known to be among tho richest in
copper and gold in Hritish Columbiu.
lu addition to these precious metals
silver, lead and iron ores can be
obtained from Boulder Cietk, Ronoh
Itiver antl 20-Mlle Creek altogether
making a Ii ie Iluxing oro, within
three to twenty miles of Ashnola,
which is underlaid with fine seams of
serai-bituminous and soini-antnraoite
coal, tlncu scams in all, one fifteen,
one twenty and tbo other at least
thirty-five feet thick*.
The oompany have also secured 500
inches of water from VVhlpaaw and
Nine-Mile creeks, which is already
brought on to the townsite, by means
of ditches and flumes, with a fall of
over 600 feet, thus giving power-for
electiic light, in addition to water for
smelting and oity purposes.
The coinpany also hold li,too acres
of lino cjal land, surrounding Ashnola, under which exists the same
Beams of coal, which land is covered
with at least, twenty-five million feet
of line timber.
The promoters of this company also
control over in,Out) acres of line coal
lands, 5,000 acres of Ibis is underlaid
with tho linest of coking coal, all of
which Is to he used to the advantage of
the company and the upbuilding of
the City of Ashnola.
The townsite is all lhat couhi be
asked and a carriage could he driven
ovor the groatei portion of it, without
any grading being done whatsoever.
There are entire blocks of lots that
uro as level as a floor, although as a
whole there is a splendid fall, giving
lino  drainage   to the whole townsite,
to tho banks of the Similkameen
river.
A full force of men is now at work
and will be kept on continually during tbe coming year, developing the
company's coal mine, thus making a
substantial payroll for Ashnola, as
well as putting tbe mine in shape to
ship thousands of tons of coal ner
day, with the advent of railway
transportation.
From tbe accompanying map, it can
be seen that the coast, as well as the
Kootonay unJ American markets can
be reached with a very short haul and
as a greater part of the company's
eoal land cun bo worked hy a tunnel,
tho company can undoubtedly deliver
coal to the abovo markets with as
handsome a profit as any coal company in British Oolumbia, all of
which should tend to advance the
shares of the company far more
quickly than those of the Crow's Nest
or any other coinpany in British
Columbia It will be noted that the
company have endeuvored to givo the
public tbe fullest information possible, since its earliest conception, antl
now solicit the fullest investigation
as to the above stated facts
Four stakes and u blue print map
are not. tbe only resources of a lot in
the City of Ashuola. On the contrary
sidewalks will be laid, electric lights
installed, water and sewerage mains
completed, business blocks with
modem improvements erected,and last
but not least, to back the entire town-
site, a substantial payroll.
Tho property will more than verify
tho above statements and the surrounding country is one of vaBt resources with almost a southern
climate.

Last evening James' I). Wighiiiian,

up tbeir residence at the corner of
Hall and Carl,-,mile streets where the
wedding took place.
At tbe 1 ei ersl meeting of tbe

Local hardware men are selling a
docided novelty in the way of sporting
goods consisting of suits made of long
plumes of grass, which totally conceal
the person of the wearer, malting hiin
appeai like a tall bunch of reeds even
at close rang,-. The device is said to
he of great advantage iii illicit
hunting.
Excavations are in progress on the
big grave] bank at the cornor of Wind
and Front street and lhe gravel is
being carried av/ay to be used in fill*
iugin parts of other roadways In the
city where grading is in progress. It
is probable that the sidewalk on the
south side of Front street will eventually ho connected with that on the
oast sid_* of Ward street, which will
be extended to meet it.
A water velocipede, which has heen
manufactured by J. Uray of Kaslo,
has evoked much comment along the
lake. It is composed of two long
metal cigar shapedfUoats, across whicli
is a liijlit platform. On the platfoim
ia the fiamo of a bicycle without the
wheels. At the rear of the contrivance
are two small paddle wheels, which
are operated by chains running from
the pedals of tho bicycle. The whole
is steered by the handlebars, thc same
an the ordinary bicycle, the rudder
leing between the paddle wheel-.
PERSONAL
AmSrican styles. Various blondinpn
of black and white ia the basis for
mast of tin, lending creations that will
110 worn by the ladles this full And
winter although different shade* of
Irown and gray are not uncommon.
It is'considered by lhe milliners that
the fashions this yenr aie highlv ar
tistic, and they doubtless are,although
from tho male point of view the fact
lhat it will be what is called a
"leather season'*, in which nearly all
the ornaments consist of feathers or
else entire birds on the hats detract
somewhat from its effectiveness. On
many of the leading patterns exhibited there aro as many as throe
and four birds of *'i tl-irent rare species
on one single bat, ,'hich will probably do more towards the wholesale
slaughter of tbe feathered songsters
than any one possible Influence could.
However, if lt is fashionable, nothing
else is required.
At Ken & C'o'.s some most handsome
hats are to be seen, tho millinery
opening which commenced yesterday
attracting nearly every lady in town
to view tbem. Among many otlieis
worthy of mention was a fawn chenille turban, with a tall osprey plume
al the side, Cahachcn buckle and fawn
silk ribbons. Another handsome
turban was of velvet and old rose,
draped with Brussels point lace and
silk ro-es in pastel shades. Chenille
lints are numerous, Brussels and Bat-
tenburg point lace trimmings being
strongly in evidence.
Mrs. Enfield's fall opening commenced yesterday. To a Miner representative she stated that tbe Gainsborough aud turban shapes were the
most fashionable for the season. A
Gainsborough trimmed with heavy
olaclt plumes and sequoln ornaments,
was especially noticed, as also a turban of camel's hair cloth, with crown
of black sequoln, trimmed with
natural birds.
At Fied Irvine's where the opening
will comr-ence today somo excellent
specimens of the Duchess of Devonshire ami Admiral styles wero on exhibition, composed of hlack velvet
with feathered tips, besides a ,arge
in jcr of other styles.

New York Herald, .lime 4th: The
costumes intended for the lady members of "A Wise Woman" were seined
by Chief of Treasury Agents Heron
this morning and are piled up i,i the
seizure room cf the Custom House.
Manager Davis called at the Custom
House this afternoon and held a conference with Collector Erhardt and
Chief Heron. The costumes are
valued at $3,000, and the average duty
on them would be nearly 50 per ceut.
It is probable,however, that they will
be allowed to pass free of duty. They
should have been entered at Paris as
"tools of trade," aud it was through
a blunder on the other side that tbey

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 tlio deflector^ring forces thc
heat to the lloor. The base is hot, the floor being* warmer than with a
base burner.
The Hot Rlast 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 fire pot, over lire, thus consuming all the gases and products of combustion. It can be operated in connection with the front draft door, or
independently, hy a screw register in the rear of base, insuring complete
control of the stcve with nearly perfect combustion.
The large Hot Air Circulating Kluc on the back takes therold 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 il to
consume all thc gas contained in soft coal, thus deriving thc benefit of
all the heat in the fuel consumed, causing a truly remarkable  saving  of
