Eleventh Year
Spectators Terrace Collapses
Beneath  Crowd of
Dead and Wounded Lie
Heaps Amid Broken
Glasgow, AprH 5.���The struggle of
tho great crowds which gathered at
Ibrox park today to witness the last
international association football contest between teams from England
and Scotland caused the collapse of a
portion of ono of the spectator's
terraces, resulting in the death of
five persons ana the injury of 125
others, 20 of wnom are beyond hope.
When the game began, 7,000 spectators were on the grounds, aud an immense crowd had gathered outside.
Being unable to obtain admittance
this crowd broke down some of tne
barriers and swarmed upon the field,
whereupon the police charged and
drove the intruders buck upon the
terraces and seats with the result that
the railings dividing the crowdB were
broken and the people were throw over
each other. In the frantic struggle
toward tbe exist the pressure toward
the shore portion of the westerly
terrace was so great that 100 feet of
the highest part of the structure collapsed under the weight of the crowd
driven upon it, preoipitating tho mass
ol people to tho ground, sixty feet
below. The injured were piled in
heaps, wedged in with broken wood.
Thc onlookers hesitated to approach
the dangling structure ut first, but
finally began to utilize portions of the
broken barriers as stretchers. A
hundred of the most seriously injured
were carried to the pavilion and to
spaces in the rear of the stands. A
majority of the victims were suffering
from broken ribs and fractured limbs,
while some sustained interna! injuries. Those most severely hurt were
subsequently removed in ambulances
to infirmaries and lesser sufferers
were sent in cabs to surgeiies. A
few persons were thrown down and
trampled upon in trying to escape
from the crush when the police
charged, but most of the victims sustained their injuries in the fall of the
An investigation into tbe causes of
the disaster snows that the breakdown
of tho terrace had begun before the
structure was subjected to its severest
Btrain and it is now believed that the
final collapse was caused more directly
by the efforts of those neaiest the first
break than by the additional weight
of those who rushed upoD the stands
from below. The terrace, although
supported by iron girders swayed and
cracked ominously under the movements of its Irantie oooupants. The
injured in many cases were lying five
or six oeep and it is considered marvelous that there were not more fatal-
ties. One man hung by his boot wbich
caught in a splintered beam, head
downward, fifty feet above the
ground. Finally his boot was cut and
he dropped into a sheet held below.
The strangest feature of the affairs is
the fact that the crowd in the other
parts of the grounds failed to realize
the extent of the disaster and the
game was played to a finish, resulting in a draw. Even the management
appeared to be unaware of the seriousness of tbe accident until It was announced after the conclusion of the

Results    From     Development
Work on Several Claims.
John Devlin came in on Friday
night from the Princess group of
mines situated about ten miles from
Salmo, where be has spent several
weeks doing development work. This
group consists of three olaims on Lost
creek. The vein is 20 feet wide ou tbe
surface and in the ' 20-foot shaft that
was sunk last fall ore assaying 120
ounces in silver and five per cent, copper was got. Tbe work done this
winter was to run a tunnel to catch
the ledge at depth. When Mr. Devlin
left, this tunnel, after being carried
100 feet, had just reached the vein
but the nature of the ore body there
had not been determined. The ledge
will be crosscut and drifted on. Associated with Mr. Devlin in this
property aro T. P. Mclntyre, of Winnipeg, and Wm. Hipperson, of Salmo.
Mr. Devlin reports considerable
activity in that section of tbe country
where the Prineess is situated. Chas.
Wilson, of Nelson, has two feet of
steel galena on a claim about a mile
distant. He has two men continuing
work there this winter. Already
there is a tunnel of 185 feet on the
Another property making good progress is the Queen, owned by Nelson
people and under bond to Messrs.
Holmes and Cameron, of Rossland.
They have about 13 men employed and
have made shipments. On Monday
they will begin hauling down ore by
wagon to Salmo for shipment.
Prospectors are doing development
work on Sheep creek in greater numbers tban in any year for somo time
past and are reported to bo making
good strikes. Among the best was
that made by W. McArthur.of Salmo,
on the Hide Away. Mr. Devlin predicts that the coming summer will be
one of unusual activity in all the district south of Nelson and particularly
in that part surrounding Salmo and

Washington, April 5.���The state department today made public the cor-
respodece whicb lias taken place this
far between the United States government and the government of Louisiana
respecting the latter's statement relative to the shipment of live stock and
supplies for the British army ' in
South Africa from Olialmette, La.
There are three principal litters and
a number of appendices. The principal letteisare one from the governor
of Louisiana, dated March 29, touching the conditions at Chalmette, a
reply from Secretary nay, dated April
4, announcing that he had ordered an
investigation, (which will be made
by an army officer) and a long opinion from the attornev-Keneral on the
subject of legal points involved in tho
Chalmette shipments.
Governor Hard's letter has already
been outlined in the press despatches.
He received from tbe mayor of New
Orleans a copy Of a letter lrom Secretary Hay calling attention to a
tbieat of Samuel Pearson "to commit
s breach of the peace in New
Orleans" and referring that letter to
the mayor. Mr. Pearson's letter
heretofore published and dated at
Now Orleans, Feb. 1, was addressed
to the president and called attention
to the oondition of affairs at New
Orleans and Chalmette. Tho mayor
transmitted this correspondence to
the governor of the state on the
grounds that the acts complained of
were permitted in the parish of St.
Bernaid, out of the jurisdiction of the
city authorities The governor immediately wrote to Sheriff Nun ez of the
parish about the matter.
The sheriff in his reply to a part of
the governor's lettsr dated St. Bernard, La., Feb. 28, reports that mules
and horses were being loaded at Chalmette for the Uritish government, but
the loading waB done by longshoremen of the city of New Orleans,supervised by Englishmen, who might or
might not De officers of the Uritish
irray. Certainly there was no one
there in unifoim. In conclusion the
sheriff says: ''There is no such thing
as a Jiiitish post with men and soldiers established at Port Chalmette.
So far as the recruiting of mon is concerned, I am sure I can certify that it
is not being done in the parish of St.
Governur Heard says that it is oon-
cedod by the British officers themselves th��t the animals were for the
British army in South Africa. He
says turther: I cannot but feel that
the establishment and maintenance of
a base of war supplies for the British
army upon her (Louisiana's) soil
placeB upon me a grave responsibility.
These mules and horses shipped from
Port Chalmette, it is claimed, are
mdespensible to the opoiations of the
Britisli army. Hence they must be
considered to be contraband of war,
of greater valuo than arms or soldiers,
that England can so easily furnish
from within her borders,
The governor calls on the secretary
of state for his views in the matter,
ln a postscript to his letter, the governor reports the arrival in New Orleans
of General Sir Richard Campbell
Stuart, an aid of tho British army,
on a tour of inspection of the transport service in the vicinity of New
Orleans, ne also encloses a number
of newspaper clippings and statements
from individuals as to the operations
of the llritish remount service, a tran
script of the proceedings in court  and
of the company in the Unitod   States.

that from the governor says: I have
received youi letter ol March 29 and
Bubraittod it to the president who
directs mo to inform you that he has
requested a opinion from the attorney-
genernl in regard to the points of law
involved iu the mattor to which it
refers, and has also ordered an immediate investigation of the facts in the
Tbe attorney-general's opinion is
dated Apiil 4. He says: It seems
necessary to say nothing as to the
duties and powers of the state of
Louisiana, except that they involve,
of course, the exercise of the usual
civil means of preserving the peace,
in the improbable event of its breach
in the manner supposed to be sug-
geste'd by Pearson. His object is
doubtless to bring forcibly to the attention of the government that he
considers the proceedings of the British equivalent to carrying on war
upon ou   territory.
The attorney-general says that the
principal question, and a delicate on,
is whether there has been a departure
from neutrality on tbe part of our
government in this matter and notwithstanding the urgency of Pearson
and Governor Heard "thinks thiB government should not take any action
without mature consideration by the
president and his advisors.
The attorney-general adverts at
some length to the difficulty in disposing of cases involving the question of
neutrality or differing fro-u the other
and without exact precedent and he
falls baca upon the principles recognized in international law, that the
preponderant characteristio must control tbe determination. He enters into
a long citation of cases in the nature
of precedents and says in conclusion:
In the case before us there is no statement of facts by you uuon which to
give an official opinion as to the law,
and I do not understand that one has
been requested. A number of allegations and some testimony have been
sent me and they aie sufficient to
challenge attention. But the first
thing to be done is to asoertain
whether the allegations are true. I
have endeavored as well as I could in
advance, to indicate the law to be applied to them and shall only add that
among the points by which to be
guided are the systematic character
of the transactions, their greater or
less extensiveness, their persistence in
time or the reverse, thoir governmental character or the absence of it,
tneir objects and results and, principally, of couisn, tlieir relations, if
any, with tbe prosecution of tbe
military operations in South Africa.
France Given Over to Politicians,
Faddists and Campaign Posters.
Paris, April 5.--France has entered
into the throes of an election period.
Immediately the session closed yesterday, the members of the chamber of
deputies loft Paris for their respective
consistencies and are already actually engaged in canvassing and making addresses to the electors, Thursday was the first day for tho declarations of candidacy at the various prefectures and up to yesterday no fewer
than a thousand candidates had presented themselves. Thore wero 179
candidates for the 40 seats representing Paris and the department of the
Seine. Paris bas become a paradise for
bill posters and every available wall
space seems already to have been covered with multi-colored olectoral
posters. The common trick of candidates of printing their declarations
upon tri-colored papers has been
stopped this yeat by a declaration of
parliament prohibiting the use of the
national colors. Offenders are liable
to a fine of 50 francs for each breach
of this regulation. The custom which
haB hithertc obtained of smothering
national monuments under a hideous
coating of election bills, has also been

An appeal for female suffrage, signed
by the writer and other advocates of
women's rights is being circulated.
The writer, M.Auolert, in a published
interviow says that France ore long
will have to follow tne example of
America in several states of which
women have equal political rights
with men.
The Ministerialists express confidence that they will be victorious^in
tho elections. M. liaudiu, minister
of publio works; M. Leygues, in iu islet of publio instruction and worship, and M. Delanntssen, ministei
of marine, appear to be only members of cabinet whose positions seem
insecure. M. Waldeck Rousseau, the
premier will remain in Paris from
which point he can engineer tbe
whole Ministerial campaign, through
the prefect he cau exert telling influence iu aid of the governmental candidates. It oannot be said that the
Republic is at stake in the present
election which will be a struggle
between the Ministerialists and tbe
adversaries of the government mainly
composed of Nationalists, moderate
Republicans, under M. Mene, and
uncompromising Socialists who op
pose the cooperation of M.Millerand,
tbe minister of commerce, with the
ministry. Present indications load

will lose ground.

A repoiter of The Miner was yesterday shown by Captain C. W. Busk
over the proposed route of the rjad
along the north shore of the lake from
Gray's ranch to a point opposite Five
Mile point, although it is hoped that
eventually the road will be continued
live miles further west. The property
owners along the north shore of the
lake are at work extending tbe road
through tlici- respective ranches and
hope to interest the government sufficiently to pioviile a grant of f.1,000
towards extending the road through
the unoccupied crown lauds which lie
between Uray's ranch and*Fivo Mile,
only amount to about three-quarters
of a mile, and also to aid in puttii.g
through a portion of the road on tbe
ranch of ono resident whose land extends for over a mile ulong tlie lake
front, although not extending far
With the exception of the portions
mentioned, ou which a small amount
of rock work will have to le done,
the building of it will be surprisingly
easy. For mile after mile the blazed
line which indicates the proposed
route of the road runs along a perfectly even grade, encountering nj
rock tbat could not be easily removed
with a orow bar, and very little of
Traversing tbis lino for most of
thc distance it is hard to imagine that
either mountain or lake are near, as
both are hidden by wide stretches of
level nnavily timbered country, except at intervals when tbe lino comes
out on broad clearings with hundreds
of apple, plum,cherry, peach nnd other
fruit trees and bushes planted in long
symmetrical Hues. At these clearings
generally one or more men were plowing,and getting ready for their spring
planting. Horses and cows pasturing
on the clover and grasses, which are
already green and well up, and fat
turkeys, chickens aud other poultry
combined to make as pretty a pastoral
scene as could be imagined.and which
to one who has only viewed this side
of tho lake from a steamer appeared
almost incredible.
Thc settlers are principally anxious
to get this road through for convenience of access to each other's ranches
and also that a common centre for
postoffice and school may bo selected,
as there are a largo number of
children of nchool nge at the various
ranches who at present are deprived
of school privileges, as it is utterlv
impossible for them to get to Ntlson.
All that is plannoa at present is to
get a four foot road through for the
whole distance, bb the character of
the land through whieh it is to run
makes it a comparatively easy matter
to widen it later, while tlie small road
way will meet tho moie pressing requirements of the community. All
the settlers havo road* running across
tbeir propertied for varying distances
but it is lelt by nil that a level road
connecting all the settlements is what
is needed, as the short roads mentioned are not parallel and do not
eonneot.mablng the transfer of horses
and stock, from one ranch to another
a difficult operation.
Besides these considerations another
important point Is tho many beautiful
spots that csn easily bo reached from
the proposed road, which in some
places is more than half a mile back
from the lake, although not 50 feet
above it. Among these may be mentioned the beautiful and romantic
waterfalli and canyons on Kokanee
creek, the falls on Six Mile and other
creeks, all of which aro reached by
following somo of the pretty little
putbs which wind to tho northward
among thc trees. Thoro are also
several charming lakelets within a
few miles supplying a countless variety of views to tbe artist or amateur
photographer. If tho road is run
through, as   at present   proposed,    it
will be available for bicycling for
nearly the entire distance. Hall a
dozen' good trout streams are also
croSBcd by it. Nelson   Daily Miner,   Sunday,   April 6,  iqo-j

London   papers   havo   como to hand
with   accounts of the   meetings of the
Kossland-Great Western and Kootenay
Mining   companios   wbich were   held
there on March Hi.      From   theso   the
following account   is   gleaned:     The
meetings were called for the   purpose
of receiving the reports of the  officers
and to consider the   best means   of re
constructing th; boards.    Irevious   to
the meetiDg Messrs. White and Dealtry
had   sent   out a circular to the shareholders   soliciting   proxies   in     their
favor.     As   they   are   supposed to be
friendly   to the interests of Whitaker
Wright their efforts to secure   proxies
evidently   did   not    meet with   much
favor and at the meeting it trauspired
that   Mr.    Deaitry   had   tendered   his
resignation as a member of the boards
of both   companies,    and that Colonel
llartopp had also   resigned   from   the
board of the Kootonay company.   This
left Tyndale White as the sole director
of both companies.     E. T. Holloway,
who   acted   as spokesman of the committee,   brought   up a proposal   that,
having   regard   to   the community   of
interests between the   companies   and
tlio   close   proximity   of their properties, it was desirable that they should
be amalgamated.and he suggested that
a committee be appointed to lormulate
a Ecbemo.    The proposal   was   unanimously   agreed   to   and a   committee
appoint'd     for   the     purpose.      The
director; appointed wero Messrs. Tyndale   White,   W.   Milne,   and   E.    T.
Holloway,  with F,. Surridge   a�� additional director   of   tho Kootenay oompany.    During the course of   the   proceedings the chairman announced that
Bernard   Macdonald   had,   since    the
previous meeting, sent in his resignation as mining   superintendent for the
companies.     Tho chairman, however,
expressed the hope tbat   Mr.  Macdonald might be induced to reconsider his
Frrom the above it is evident that
tho same combination of brokers and
their friends who secured control of
the Le Boi, and who were such bitter opponents of Whitaker Wright, are
now dominant in the affairs of tbe
Rossland-Clreat Western and the
Kootenay mines. When they secured
the Le Hoi it wus an open secret that
they intended, as soon as the opportunity presented itself, to do likewise
with the Itossland-Great Westein and
the Kootenay mines. That this has
been done is shown by the retirement
of Mr. Iiealtry and the appearance of
individuals in the directorates who
are not friendly to Mr. Wright.
In the amalgamation of tlie properties of the Kossland-tircat Western
and tho Kootenay mines it ls the consensus of opinion in the Kossiand
camp that the holdings of the former are more valuable than those of tin-
latter, and hence an amalgamation on
anything like an even basis would be
a palpable injustice to the stockholders of the Kossland-Great Western.
The latter is producing considerable
ore aud is amply equipped with machinery aud should be able to pay
dividends. The Kootenny gronp bas
not tnaou a shipment since it was acquired by tlie B. A. C��� bas only an
ordinary equipment ol machinery, and
it will be necessary to build a railway
spur at considerable cost before its ore
can be economical}' shipped, The ways
of the English directors of mining
companies, bowevjr, aro sometimes
passing strange, and can only be accounted f ir on the theory that they do
not understand the mining conditions
well enough in this profinoe to handle them as they should be.
The King aa Prince of Wales traveled
a great deal in foreign countries and
everywhere that he went be made
friends, and. as a consequence, the
world is interested in him and his
doings. As a result of this there will
he a larger throng of notable personages gathered in London on the occasion of the coronation than ever attended similar ceremonies of any
lung that ever reigned in the British
Isles. Besides this,the llritish emnire
never was more generally prosperous
than at present and the representatives of the several colonies, official
and unofficial, including tho pr:mier��,
will make up an aggregation of men
of more than ordinary note. Those
who em afford to be :u London at the
time will be able tr see tho greatest
imen of Ihe empire,aud men who have,
during recent yeuis.greatly assisted in
mailing its history, in advancing its
interests and expanding its territory
in tho four quartets ol the globe. The
occasion will be one which is worthy
of participating in, even in the capacity of a spectator, as apirt from its
spectacular effects, its pageantry and
royal spendor, it will impress all with
the solidarity of the empire with fhe
community of interests, of ideais and
aims which animates the people of
the Mother Ccuntry and tbe colonies.
It will be remembered what a
quickening effect the eeremonies
incidental to late Queen Victoria's
diamond jubilee had on the impelial
spirit, when the leading officials of
the army gathered together ana portions of the troops from tbe colonies
and dependencies were assembled to
honor tbeir sovereign As great an
effect as this historic occasion had in
cementing together more strongly the
various parts and parcels of the empire we believe tbe orowniug of
King Edward will still greater
in the same directon and will
go a long ways further in crystalizing
the imperial spirit and making the
���'vaster empire than has been" more
of a unit in every way than heretofore.
On the occasion of the Queen's
jubilee all of the patriotic subjects
could not attend tbe ceremonies, but
tbey showed that they participated in
the spirit of the occasion by holding
celebrations at centers of population
all over the empire. Several towns in
the Kootenays observed the day with
trne patriotic fervor, and bo testified
their loyalty to their sovereign and
the empire. On the day the King's
coronation takes place like celebrations should be held. These should
be worthy of the occasion. Nelson
should do something in this direction,
aud should hold a celebration. There
is ample time in which to arrange the
d' tails and let it be one which all
can be proud of. Only a few can go
to the coronation of the king, but all
can join heartily in the celebrations
in honor of the event.

The offer of Canada to sena 2,0U0
mounted men to South Africa has
been accepted by the imperial authorities and they will be mobilized at once
so as to take ship as early as possible.
As on former occasions there will be
no difficulty in securing the required
number, on the contrary, it will offer
an opportunity to many who desired
to volunteer in the former contingents
to do so now and more d,esire to go
than can. Those who will go are
anxious to see service under the flag
of the empiie. and although there is a
prospect of peace, it is probable that
they may be able to reach Africa,
see a little service and be present at
the close of hostilities. Besides this,
at the close of the war tne presence
of a force of considerable size will be
necessary to preserve order during
the period of reconstruction. For tbis
service the Canadian troops are par-
ticulary well qualifiod.
The coronation . His Gracious
Majesty King Edward VII. will take

llritish Columbia mining men have
a grievance in the mattor of the tax
exacted on their mineral output, says
the Mining Review. As it now
stands, the tax is :; por cont. levied on
the gross output of tbe mines. They
will try to change this to a levy on
tho net produot. Using gross figures
ns a ba>is for assessment is eminently
unsatisfactory and unfair.
The meeting for the purpose nf
forming a B. (!. l'ress institute, which
was called for April 14, at Haloyon
Hot Springs, has been changed 10 Kii-
ilay, April 11. and will continue in
session until the business of the intei-
ing shall bave beon completed. The
intention is to establish a more uniform price for legal advertising and
job printing.

That $12.50 recording fee resoluticn
passed by the Associated Boarus of
Trade was a luoky fluke after all,
says the Sandon Paystreak. The wise
men who compose the associated
boards asked the Dominion government to put a prohibitive duty on
lead imports, raise the refinery bonus
to $7 a ton and give the government
coal reserve in the Crow's Nest to tbe
C.I'.R. They did all this with such
awe-inspiring solemnity that some
unsophisieated folk might have been
deluded into imagining that these
men knew what they were talking
about. But when they wonnd up by
recommending the Provincial government to tax prospectors if 18.1SO foi' recording a location or an assessment,
that gave the whole snap away. It
was equivalent to a declaration that
these board of trade gents don't know
enough to come in when it rains.

The Sandon ore shipments last week
were 122 tons.

tbe month oi March were: Whitewater 022 1-2 ton aud Wellington 16.
The concentrator at the Rambler
wili be in operation in about two
weeks time when the water supply
will be greatly increased by the
spring thaw.
The Urban Mining and Milling
company are applying for water rights
on Falls creek near the Payne, lho
application states its uses are for mining and smelting purposes, and will
be conveyed by flume and pipe.
The Reco mine made its regular
spiing close down this week, letting
out all but seven or eight men, says
the Sandon Mining Review. They are
working a rich carbonates vein now,
and in it there is too much loss of
silver in the wet workings to allow
operations. In a few weeks work will
be resumed,
The Last Chanco lot out all ol its
men but six or seven on Monday
This, however, is not a permanent
drop; it is occasioned by the water in
the workings. It is believed that in
a month or so tho workings will be
sufficiently dry again to allow the full
staff to be taken on. In other respects
there is nothing new to report at thia
The rawhide trails have been broken
up by the warm weather of the past
few days. The Sunset loaded its last
car yesterday and the Reco has quit
rawhiding and laid off part of the
force. The American Boy has about
three cars on the dump which they
will try to get down to the sidetrack.
A temporary reduction of the force
will probably be necessary there also.

through a checkered career within the

There was a smelter meeting in
the city hall on Tuesday evening at
Sandon, says the Sandon Paystreak,
io further discuss the Vulcan propo
sition. Mr. Ryan, the smelter man,
failed to put in an appearance so a
committee of five was appointed to
find out who Mr. Ryan represented
and what his company amounted to ;
aUo what bis proposed smelter was
likely to cost and what kind of
proposition, if any, he had to make to
the eity of Sandon.
The Silver Crown Mining and Milling oompany held their annual meet
ing in Spokane recently, when arrangements were completed to begin
extensive development work on their
property near Cody, the Alice and
Zuni claims. The claims have been
worked for some time past and have
Bhown up some rich ore. They are
looated near thc Carbonates No. 2, on
which a rich strike has recently been
made. Ore from the ledge encountered averages about 200 ounces in silver and 70 per cent. lead.
Mr. Garde is getting everything
into excellent shape at the Payne, as
well at the new concentrator as at
the mino. A week ago today he received the dynamo and electric appliances at the mill from Heterboro.Ont.,
and a ponderous piece of machinery it
was, if we judgo from the way the
draymen had to lift in transfernng it
from one railway to the other. The
work of installation is going on now,
and when completed the maehineiy
will be run by water power, there
being several streams hard by that
can be harnessed for power purposes
if necessary. The machinery will
work tlie drills in the tunnels, furnish
light for all the workings, the mill,
offices, boarding house, etc. This of
course,, will considerably reduce the
old time expenses, ind to ao extent
onable the mine to compete with the
low price ot tne minerals produced���
silver and lead.
The connection between the shaft
from the No. 5 aud the raise from the
No. 8 was made last weok. This was
a very aitficult piece of engineering
as the survey had to bo curried from
the No. 5 out on thc Sandon side, over
the hill and iu through tho No. 8 tunnel on the McGuigan side, requiring
some very intricate and extensive oal-
culations. As tho workings met to a
dot the management feels considerable
satislaction over the result.

Editor Miner,���Will the grocers of
Nelson advertise a list of tlieir prices,
that the public can oompare them
with the lists of other merchants,
then by allowing some 2 1-3 per pound
for froight from the east they will
get some idea as to whether they are
overcharged or not.
We hear a good deal about dealing
with T. Eaton and Co., but aro not
tho grooers doing exactly tho same
thing, i. o. buying whoslosalo in tho
East and getting in distribution cars?
If Nelson is not a wholesale centre
it is nothing, yet when a move was
made lately to obtain a rate whioh
would allow our wboesale merchants
to compete, with thc coast, etc, did
not these gentlemen issue a ciroular
and do everything in their power stop
this, and thereby provent the town
becoming a wholesale centre? They
seem very mush afiaid that the letter
in thc Kossiand Miner may hurt the
town, but it cannot possibly do as
much harm as the aforesaid circular,
and may do a great deal of good.
