Eleventh .Year
international   -Yacht    Race
Sailed at Chicago Yes- *
Constitution Beats Columbia
ln Trial of the Big
Chicago. III., Aug. 10.���The first  of
the series o( five races for tho international yaohting championship of the
great lakes, is today being sailed off
Chicago by the Royal Canadian Yacnt
Cluhs Invader   and   the   Detroit   Iloat
Claim Cadillac. The day broke fine
anil clear with a light breeze from the
west, which later gradually hauled to
the northwest and freshoned. It is ru
mored that the judge's intended to re-
measure each yacht's sail area this
morning, but finally postponed the
measurement, both skippers agreeing
that tho results of today's race should
stand, even if some slight change in
canvas should be found necessary before Monday's race.
At 10 a. m. the ten minute or preparatory gun was fired from the
judge's boat which already was fly-inn
signals denoting tbe course. The two
racers now hegan the roal nianoeiiver-
ing aud are jockeying for position,and
it was noticeable that the Canadian
boat was overy bit as quick in stays
as the Cadillac. Capt. Jarvis, the
Canadian skipper, nlso displayed
ole ter seamanship for which he is so
justly fumed, and allowed the Detroit
oout none the hest of it when the final
starting gun was lired, A few seconds and the line was crossed, the
raoe was on, and the suspense of the
great prowds of spectators afloat and
ashore found vent in a rousing cheer.
It is calculated that if the breeze
holds, the triangular course of
twenty-one miles should be sailed in
three hours.
11 a. m.���Hunts have just crossed
the starting line, Invader in the lead.
Tho yachts are sailing thc noith
11.16���Cadillac is leading by several
lengths and is gaining to the north.
11.22���Indvader appears to be nearly
abreast of Cadillac. Cadillac rounds
first buoy considerably in the lead.
Invader apparently turned second
bu.y at 12.53 having passed Cadillac
on this leg Cadillac crossed the
line at 1.47 p. m. unofficial, Invader
about a quarler of a length behind.
Distance between the boats widening
but one seems to be as speedy as tbe
Cadillac seems to be to the leeward
of Invade.-. The hitler is leading
slightly. Both are wo/king niaqnifi
cently against the wind.
Invader finished nine minute.,
official time, after Cadillac.
'Jacliliac crossed the fluisb line at
1.40:35, beating Invader by eight
minutes 35 seconds. T'me of race two
hours 40 minutes, 35 soeoeds.
Vancouver, B. C, Aug. 10.���There
wns a sorry exhibition of lacrosse at
Vancouver today between the Vancouver and New Westminster seniors.
Hoth teams were composed of two-
third juniors. Showing how the popularity of lacrosse as it is played in
this section has waned, but 40 people
witnessed the match where 4,000 used
to turn out. New Westminster could
have beaten Vancouver SO to 0, but
she did not.    The score was 0 to 3.
The Y. M. C. A. team offered to
play New Westminster without Miller
being protested, but New Westminster
declined. Thc Y. M. C. A. will now
claim the championship of the world
if New Westminster does not respond
to their challenge in a few days. It
is generally conceded that the Y's can
heat the New Westminsters, and tbat
the latter are afraid to play.

Cowes, Aug. 10.���In compliance
with King Edward's wishes the race
for the King's cup was sailed today.
Emperor William's yacht Meteor had
the advantage of the start. She was
followed by the Leander, the Britannia (King Edward's old yacht), and
theRosel. The Meteor led throughout. The yachts finished as follows:

000.000-NEW RAILWAY.
(SPECIAI. to THEI MiNicn.)
Grand Forks, Aug. 10.���It la reported tbat the Granby Smelter Company
are consolidating as a .20,000,000 syndicate. They have secured several additional large properties within the
past few days, particulars of whioh
will bo made public later. The smelter nlant at Grand Forks will also be
increased to a far g.eater capacity
than was at first contemplated.
Publio ballot will decide shortly as
to tho joining of Grand Forks and
Columbia into one to,vn under the
name of the former, and it is generally, thought here that this will be
accomplished as public opinion is
strongly in favor of such a union taking place.
Boring for oil with the diamond
drill, about one mile southeast of the
town, is going steadily on,and the indications are   increasingly favorable.
The right-of-way on the new railway is being cut and burned a,, present along the banks of tbe Kettle
river. The grade on tbe whole road
will be less than one per oent. The
depot at Grand Forks will lein tbe
Van Ness addition, near tbe C. P. R.
crossing of the Kettle river. While
the building of this road has matei-
ially improved business already in
Grand Forks and Cascade, tbe full
effects will not be felt for another
month or more, until tbe money after
the first pay day has bad time to circulate.

Wierdly Beautiful Scenes Attending the
Removal of Dowager Empress' Body
to the Church.
Will-o'-the-Wisp-Like Torches Light the Way
Over the Winding Country Road.
Press Eulogies.
Berlin, Aug. 10.���All eyes in Ger
many are turned today on Homburg.
Public interest in the deceased Dowager Empress during her widowhood
was slight, and she did everything
possible to retire from public view
and avoided every semblance c": political activity. The latter fact has soft-
ened the judgment from even the unbending junker organs, which once
persecuted Her Majesty, assailing her
moat sharply when at the very acme of
her power. The Dowager Empress'
death reveals tho fact that the autocratic extremists had largely modified
their judgment, or at least had ignored tbeir points of difference. They
praise her for humanity, her tender
nursing of the sick in war, her interest in industrial art and the practioal
advance she made in these lines.
They also prai-e her activity in
promoting female education and in
the advancement of women. The most
conservative papers praised tho latter
feature of her character unstintedly.
The newspaper eooime.t pai takes
largely of the charactor of reminis-
censes pointing out that the deceased
was one of the last links binding Germany of today with the gieat historical events of 30 or 40 years ago.
While the nation has thus been engaged in recounting the story of the
life of the Dowager Empress, her relatives have been aBnembling at Cronberg for the funeral. King Edward
and Queen Alexandra arrived there
today and Prince Heary of Prussia
wno is now steaming up the channel,
is expected to arrived at Bremeroaven
on Sunday or Monday, too late for
the services at Cronberg, but in time
to attend the burial at Potsdam.
Great crowds of ourlous people arc
arriving at Cronberg, All the hotels
there are overflowing, and all tbe
windows are engaged for .oinorrow.
Cronberg is overrun with English people in deep morvoing. King Edward
with Queen Alexandra will go to
Potsdam. Then His Majesty will return to Homberg alone, where he will
take the waters, living at his accustomed hotel in the same style as when
he was Prince of Wales.
The ooffln of the deceased Dowager
Empress, wbich has been sent from
Berlin to Cronberg, is of English style
with a flat oover, not the German
pyramidal style. The deceased herself
oesigned the roseitea ornamenting
the cover and aiso designed tne coflir.
The train which is to bring tbe
funeral party to Potsdam bas been
prepared at Frnnkfoit. The car
which will carry the coflin is trimmed
with English mourning colors, lilac
and white, and is freely ornamented
within and without.
Other cars have been provided for
the funeral paity. Wnile Field Marshal Count Von Waldersee's arrival in
Germany was naturally overshadowed
by the sad event at Cronberg, tbe
whole tone of the press, and the attitude of the crowds during Count Von
Waldersee's trip yesterday from Homburg to Hanover, indicate that Germany takes a much more sober view
of Von Waldersee's mission now than
was the case a year ago. The more
influential newspapers review the
Field Marshal's work appreciatively,
but implying that everybody in Germany had formed exaggerated notions
of the task before him. Von Waldersee
is described as deeply bronzed, but
as having the same elastic stop and
buoyant spirits. Yesterday at Kassell
his old military friends welcomed him
on his way to Uamburg. While the
train waited, Von Waldersee entertained thein with his China experiences which called forth roars of laughter, Tho Field Marshal will dine with
Emperor William at the Homburg
Schloss today. He returns to Hanover
tomorrow. It is understood that Von
Waldersee's reappointment as inspector of the third military corps is in
accordance with an arrangement made
with Ilis Majesty piior to the field
marshal's departure for China.
Baron Von Settler's Body Carried to
Its Final Resting Place
Muenstei, Westphalia, Germany,
Aug. 10.���The remains of Baron Von
Ketteler, the minister of Germany
who was murdered at Pekin were buried here today,after the celebration of
a requiem mass. The widow, mother
and other relatives of the deceased
were present. A guard of honor
headed the procession. It was followed by the students' associations
bearing banners and the chapter of
the Cathedral. Behind the coffin
came the family, the governoi of the
province, the general commanding the
district, the minister of foreign
affairs, Baron Kicbthofen, the secretary of state, and a deputation from
the foreign ofiice. While the coffin
was being lowered into the grave,
the guard of honor fired three volleys.
Cronberg, Aug. 10.-- All day long
there was intense heat. From 2
o'clock this aft moon vehicles and
oarriages of every description came
streaming into the town bringing
sightseers from Hamburg, Frankfort,
Hauheiin and the country for miles
around. From 8 o'clock this morning
the military held tho streets and none
but a most priveleged few were permitted along the route to^be taken by
the cortege. At the bend where
the road reaches the old part of the
town is a great arch of green boughs
and pillars, the suppoit of which is
four immense wierd torches. Punctually at 9.3b o'clock tonight, the far off
sound of muffled drums and the will-
d'-the wisp-like twinkling of torches
through the distant trees told the people of Cronberg that the procession
had started. As the glaieof the uplifted torches drew nearer down the
winding road, it revealed a long black
massive line of the shoulders of the
soldiers. Then another flare revealed
the well known figure ot the Emperor,
pacing with sombre tread just behind
the coffin It was a wierd, wonderful sight, appearing for a moment
and then disappearing under the flaring torches, while on each side for a
mile along the road were revealed the
glittering bayonets and helmets of
the regiment of tbe line, of which tbe
dead Dowager Empress was the colonel-in-chief. Tbe deep, muffled roll
of the drnms added to the solemnity of
the scene. As the precincts of the
old town were reached the scene seemed even more mystical.
Behind Emperor William followed
the loyal family, save the ladies, none
of whom were in the procession; the
Crown Prince of Greece, the Prince of
Schaiimberg-Lippe, the hereditary
Prince of Saxe-Meiningen. Count Von
Seckendorf, (who was the secretary of
tbe Dowager Empress), and other
notables. A double file of soldiers
bearing torches walked on either side
of the mourners. Within the dimly
lighted ohurch four officets, with
drawn sabres, stood as a guard of
honor within the chancel.
The coffin was home sile.tly down
the aisle and deposited between the
guards beneath a orucilix. The rival
mourners followed. The Emperor,
advancing to the bead cf tbo coffin,
stood with bowed head while Dr. Dry-
andock, the court chaplain, spoke a
few solemn words. Following the
chaplain's address in the death-like
stillness, the -mperor stepped forward and deposited a magnificent
wreath upon the coffin. His Majesty
stood a moment motionless, then
dropped upon his knees by the side of
his mother's body. Tho whole congregation followed and five minutes
was devoted to silent prayer. It was
an intensely dramatic scene, the more
so because of its gieat simplicity.
Not a breath broke tho stillness of the
church, not a sabre quivered among
the staturesquo figures of the guard
till the Emperor rose, a marshal's
baton in his hand, and silently left
the church, followed by tbe chief
mourners. Then sounded the clash of
side arms, as the, e~ ort, without spoken word of command, closed up
around the carriage, and the party
drove back to  Friedrichshoff, leaving
Washington,Aug. 10.���Chief Wilkie
of tbe secret service has received a
telegram announcing that Walter Dim
mick, former chief clerk of the San
Francisco mint, has been arrested
there upon two charges. Ono was preferred by Secret Service Agent George
lltizen, charging Dimmick wilh the
theft of 830,000 in gold from the United States mint in San Francisco. The
other charge was made by Superintendent Leach, accusing Dimmick of
misappropriating funds placed in his
hands for the purchase of supplies.
Vancouver, B.C.. Aug. 10.���The entire business portiou of Armstrong,
B. fl., was destroyed b-i fire tod_y,
loss 880,000, insurance SI S, 000. A
man named Eagles, said to be demented, was accused of starting the fire
and confessed his guilt. The town is
the scene of discouraging desolation.
The principal places destroyed are C.

Fellows hall,and the following stores,
Wood-Cargill Co., Hardy, Wright,
Burns, Francis warehouse, Francis'
billiard roome, and Wright's warehouse.
Investigations at Victoria Indicate
There Have Ileen Disturbances,
Victoria, B. C, Aug. 10.���The seismograph at the meteorological ofiice
here on Friday recorded some very
severe shocks of earthquake, which
the superintendent believes occurred
in Alaska as the records are similar to
those made when the last earthquakes
occurred up north. The preliminary
tremors commenced at 1.30 a.m., V.c-
toria time and continued until, 4.0s
the pendulum in this interval recording several oscillations of three millimetres in amplitude. The boom then
remained quiet until 5.15 when another disturbance commenced which
rapidly assumed immense proportions,
unt'l at 6.15 the swing of the pendulum had completely crossed the record paper and maintained this incessant movement for some twenty minutes when its vibiations, through still
exceedingly lar^-e began to lessen
and repeating as it wero the echoes
of itB preliminary tremors, gradually
died out about 10 o'clock. Another
rest then occurred for 48 minutes
when a fresh vibration occurred
which became very pronounced for
nearly an hour and then continued its
ever lessening movements until about
half paBt one when the pendulum
finally came to rest, the extraordinary
seismio disturbances having thus last
ed for some twelve hours.

Thousands of Workers Leave
Their Places to Enforce
Amalgamated Association Expects the Assistance of
Other Bodies.
Pittsburg, Pa., Aug. 10.���Tbe great
steel strike is ou. The general order
of President Shaffer of the Amalgamated Association became effective
today and thousands of wor~crs left
their places to return at some indefinite time in the future, either victorious over the iron masters or in hum-
be defeat. The order lo strike was
generally obeyed wherever the workers
were organized and enrolled in the
lodges of tho Amalgamated Association
but. it will be Monday before an accurate count can be made of the men
who have gone out. A great majority
of the mills closed down on Saturday
and reopened Sunday night and the
true test of the strength of the contending sides will bo furnished by tho
number of mop who return to work tomorrow aud Monday, Tho policy of
tbe American Federation of Labor has
nol yet been fully disclosed aud that
fact contributes another element of
uncertainty to tho situation. The aotion of the executive officials of the
mme workers at Indianapolis today
in resolving to suppoit the strike
cheered the Amalgamated men and
they are confident that the Federation will aid them to the fullest extent. The closing hours of labor and
the opening hours of the strike lacked
spectaecaular action. A striking development of the day was an official
announcement from the American Tin
Plate Co. to the effect that certain
plants of the company crippled by the
strike would be dismantled aud removed to Montesen.
New York, Aug. ll.-Offioials of tbe
United States Steel Corporation answered that they "had nothing to
say" when asked about the strike developments today. One of the partners
of the firm of J. P. Morgan Sc Co.,
said today that there was nothing now
;o report. He did not think trat Mr.
Morgan had received any request from
Samuel Gompevs or any other labor
leader for a conference, and it was
not expected that Mr. Gompers would
attempt to interview any of tbe officers of the company with regard to the

issued a statement today announcing
that it was their intention to dismantle and -Remove to MonteBen, certain of

It is claimed by Professor Jordan,
of the university of Chicago, that the
physical characteristics of the people
of the Nortli American continent nre
growing more aboriginal every day,
and the only thing that prevents them
from becoming similar to the Indians
is the Intermarriage of the native-
born of tin- continent and Immigrants
from Bluiope, Andreas Retslus, tlie
founder of SOientiflo cranilogy,   divid
ed American aboiiglnies into two divisions, those west of the Rocky
mountains in to  the braobyrfepbalons
or roiiinl headed and those east of the
Rockies ns dollCUOOapbaloUS or long
beaded. This la Interesting to know,
if   the Profess. 11's   theory   is   correct. ]
becauBe our children's children  will,
then, naturally belong to the
braOhycopbalous type. Yesterday one
of these round beaded aboiginles was
seen moving along linker street and
he slouched along ahead of the sharer
of his joys and sorrows, bearing no
burden, unwashed and unkempt and
apparently proud of his condition.
Behind bim, al a respectful distance,
came his better half loaded down with
all tlie family belongings, the diudge,
the slave of tbe copartnership, If the
theory of Piofessor .loidon is corrcol
anil the Caucasians are to relapse back
Into the degraded condition of thc Indian il would, perhaps, be better if
America bail never been discovered.
lt will hi- noliced, however, that
Professor Jordan mentions only phys
leal and says   nothing about a mental
retrogression   to  the level of tbe si-
wiitdi or Choctaw mind. Of tho two
evils the physical change could be
borne with 'he most equanimity and
as the question IS left in doubt Unpeople of the continent will hold their
breath until the Professor cl.aix up
this point. The French mobility, previous to the revolution, used to say,
"Aftur us the Hood,"but we will soon
be exclaiming, "After us the Indian '.''
The possibilities suggested by the
fearful and wonderful theory are limitless almost and tho Philadelhia
American speaks of them as follows:
"What type of Indian the Professor
finds us tending toward is not made
clear, lie may linvc in mind the red
ronihor of the forest typified by Uncas-
lithe, athletic, acquiline and a born
gentleman; the bow-legged horseman
of tho plains, rugged of feature and
squat of figure; the spindle shanked
Gosboot; the portly Piute, vagabond
of the sagebrnsh, fat lazy, broadly
Mongolian iu facial structure; tbe
Hat-nosed Siwash; the hawk-nosed
Cheyenne nr Ki.iwa; the grey-eyed,
fair-skinncil Cherolfee, the heady

featured, light-brown Pueblo. Thole
Indians are no ui"re alike than arc
Russians, Italians, French, English,
and Irish. To which type we are in
danger of reverting tlie Professor has

Tim effect of the productions of

Nelson society is .enefloial ns it enlarges the public taste for the better
class of music, which has not been
inaptly defined "as one of the fine
arts whicli appropriates the plu-nom-

and has a province of ils own in many
respects analgous to, but yet wholly
distinct from that of each of the other
arts." Out, here In the west people
generaly are so engrossed in the pursuit of wealth that mnsio and other
refinements of life are partially lost
sight of by- ninny, in looking for the
hidden treasure the flowers are unnoticed and trampled under foot, the
grandeur of the scenery awakens no
enthusiasm and the song of the birds
excites no feeling of delight. The
local operatic society may, therefore,
bu classed as the faithful have remained true and steadfast to some of
the ideals which they brought with
them into the country of their adoption and by their productions they will
lure some bach to their way of thinking, and reimbue them with a love of

Recollections sweeter   than song "
The Nelson Operatic Society, which
has been resting on its laurels won
by its line rendition of "Tin. Mikado" several mouths since, has bad a
meeting, has elected officers and intends to produce another opera. "The
Mikado" as produced by this organization was certainly a signal triumph,
as it won plaudits in tho two leading
cities of the Kootenays and revealed
that the society numbers among its
memrjers many who possess both vocal
and histronic talent. Besides tins
the orchestration was above tlie average, while the costumes, scenery and
mounting of the opera were up to a
high standard. It is no wonder, therefore, that the production was an unqualified success from an artistio
standpoint, even though the expenditures made on the trip to Rossland exceeded the receipts.
It has not yet been decided what
opera will bu placed on the boards,
but tlie names of several have been
siihinittid, and doubtless a fitting
choico will lie made and at the same
time one thai will tend lo bring out to
the very best advantage tin- talent of
the members. "Thc Chimes of Normandy," the lirst on the lint submitted to the committee having the selection in hand, offers considerable scop.
for the abilities of tho members although it docs   not afford as goo3  au
pressure at 16,000 feet. These are
some of the obstaoles .in tho way of
successful mining at such a distance
in the bowels of thc earth and most
people will have to see it done before
they will believe it possible.
_______ T
The deepest lode mine shaft in liritisli Columbia is al, the War Eagle in
Rossland, which has attained a depth
of 1500 feet. The deepest opening on
the Pacific slope is on the Comstock
lode, at Virginia C'ty, Nevada, wheie
there is a shaft 3,800 feet fieep. Ihe
deepest shaft at. present operated on
tho American continent is that of the
Calumet, and Ilecla copper mine in
Michigan which is practically down a
milo or _,oiio font. Or, a neighboring
mine a shaft is now being made which
will cut the ledge o: conglomerate at
a depth ofj.7,500 feet or nearly a Wile
and half from the surface. It has been
supposed that, the vein can be followed
from this shaft to a depth of 10,000
feet, It is thought by tin: most daring mining engineers of the United
States that 10,000 feet is tlie limit to
which they woulil dare go.
The Transvaal mining engineers,
however, claim that tbey will encounter no great difficulty in extending the
workings in tin ir mini's to 5,0110 feet
deeper than the 10.01)0 feet proposed
by the Americans or to a total depth
of i5,ooo feet.
It seems to us that the Hand engineers are simply gasconading when
they talk of operating a mine to the
deptb of nearly three times that, of
the Cslument and Decla. In order to
accomplish snch a task, great physical
(1 iiiin 1 li .-s wimId have to be overcome,
If tbi' ground wero wet the pumping
of water would be so expensive that
tlie ore would have to be of a very
high grade in order to offset it. Thu
heat, in some formations at this depth
woulil l.i" so great as to very seriously
affect tin' miners and Lessen to a lanjii
degree the quantity of work which
chey ordinarily would he able to perform., and even in normal formations
where air and water would not act as
they do in lime, produce heat, it is a
well known fact that increase in
depth causes an augmctation of the
heat. Then, the expense of hoisting
would tie large and some modification
of the present continuous hoist would
bare to be devised on account of the
great, weight of the cable. Breaking
the distance hy means of station?, with
electrical or steam hoists at each station, has been suggoscd. Timbering
would be another difficult question to
solve   on   account   of  the   increased
Canada is in earnest so far aB the
Pacific cable is concerned and a proclamation has been issued, bringing
into effect tbe Pacific Cable act of the
last session, appropriating the money
for the Dominion's share of the enterprise. It was doubtful for a time as
to whether Canada would take part in
the undertaking owing to the action
of New South Wales in injuring it
hy fie i oncession which it made to
tlie EaB'.ern Extension Cable Company.
There seems to be no doubt, now,
that the cable will be laid and that
two important sections of the Hritish
Empire will be united by a cable,
which, with the telegraph line across
the ocean and a trans-Atlantic cable
will in turn give connection with the
mother country. When tho cable is finished Australians will feel that they
are closer to the mother country and
to British Columbia than ever before,
and this sentiment will be reciprocated and will stengthen the solidarity
of the empire and add Jo the spirit of
imperialism with which the British
people at home and in the colonies
aro _o strongly imbued.
A manifestation of how strong this
spirit is was given at a banquet ten
dered to tho nuke of Cornwall, representing the British Government in
Australia. Mr. Selden, premier of
New Zealand, said that ho earnestly
favored the strengthening of the Australian sjuardon and stated that he
was certain tbat Australia would eon
tribute a substantial proportion of the
cost of the additional ships. In reply
to the premier's praise of the troops
of New Zealand, Colonel Pitt asseverated that if King Edward should
need 50,000 troops tomoirow all that
wonid bo needed would be a request
from him and they would be instantly
forthcoming, ready and willing tc
sacrifice themselves for tbe good antl
glory of the onipire.

(John liurtt Morgan.)
Rut   there   are other considerations
which contribute to  my confidence in
the old Book, v-omlnent among these
mention   may   he  made   of itH  many
a���d varied prophetic utterances which
have   Invariably    heen   followed   by
fultiUnents of the most remarkable and
auggeative accuracy. The veiled future
has always presented  a tempting field
for  speculative   minus,   and   many a
venturesome   soul has '-dipt, into the
future" and risked name and fame upon    a   portrayal  of   the   .-travelled
tracts of coming time.    Nor   has universal failure   robbed the   pursuit  of
the yet-to-be of   its  resistless charm,
and  the   "medium"   plies her art to
pierce   the   veil of   "dim   futurity. '
Hat how marked the contrast between
these futile  efforts  and Biblical prophecy.   Let htm   who  stumbles over
���'the miracles of the   Bible' and halts
at    the   "supernatural"   answer     if
h(.re   is    not   a   stupendous    marvel
above and beyond the   course   of  na-
ture.   The light of implied or declared prediction  glints  from every page
of the Hook,   and   not  one word   has
proven vain.   Trace   if  you  will the
evei-increasing   stream   of Messian-.c
propnecy, in   symbol   and   type,   in
promise and     prediction,    from    its
source in the thiid chapter of Genesis
to tbe glowing utterances of the evangelist-prophet Jsainh and Israel'slater
seers, and then  mark how the Man of
Naznreth gathers these every one, and
from Bethlehem's in to Gli jet's  brow
walks  with unerring step tha de��ious
path thus   set  before   Ilirn.   Or turn
your gaze to the  far east and  behold
the  lands    against   whioh   God   centuries ago   uttered His judgments  by
prophet's  pen.   Mark the accuracy of
description ���Assyria      '' dostroyed' '���
llabylon, "a desolation among the nations"���Nineveh   "like a wilderness"
���Egypt, "destitute  of that   whereof
it was full "���Tyre,   "a placo tor   the
spreading  of  nets"���and   Jerusalem,
"trodjen   down of the   Gentiles."    Is
it any   wonder   that those who would
overthrow   the   Bible   havo assaulted
so   vigorously   the genuineness of its
parts?   What relief  it would   be  to
infidel   embarrassment   if   only these
troublesome prophecies could be proven  of  modern     authorship,    written
like the poem Boadice.   with   a backward instead of a forward glance. But
so long as  historical evidences of the
antiquity   and authenticity   of    the
Scriptures  continue   to  grow  in volume  and   increase   in   demonstrative
force,   I prefer to maintain my   stand
with Petor and believe that "prophecy
came not in   old time by the   will   of
It has been quite the fashion of late
for the skeptical critic   to amuse himself and regale his friends  by  exhibiting the imperfections  of   Old Testament worthies and Bible characters In
general.    What others thus  profoss to
stumble   at, is to me   but.   added evidence of Divine authorship.   The very
faithfulness  of   this   history,   telling
the evil as well   as   the   good   of   its
heroes, marks it as more than   human
in its origin. If these  writings wero,
as the champions of modern  infidelity
would have us  beiicve,   the  forgeries
of iron who designed   them to foist   a
system of    religion   upon  tbe   credulous,   would  we  ospect   to   find   the
sins of   their   heroes   set  in ths foreground?   Men do not so  write either
fiction or history.    The   sinB of royalty are   concealed and condoned.    Forgiving and forgetting we today   shout
with religious fervour   "God Savo the
King,"   while   tomorrow's   historian
passes the unsightly  in   silence.    But
God's pen does not   so   move.    Unfaltering    faithful ess    to  facts everywhere marks the sacred  page.    Abraham, "the friend of God," must  bear
his tale  of  sbame.   David  the   man
after God's own heart, sits   before   of
in   sack-cloth and   ashes, cries to God
for mercy, and with the   "dark, damming record of  his   crimes, goes into
history   for   infidels  to   scot!  at   for
three thousand years."    "Solomon in
all his glory" and   "wisdom" canno'
hide his  follies.   Peter   "the  rock,1'
proves a coward,a traitor, and a blasphemer.     And   BarnabaB   and   Paul,
' sent forth by the Holy Spirit" make
but  one  journey   together   when unseemly quarrel separates   them.    How
true to life, but   how   unlike  human
paintings   these   pictures!   Daro  any
hut God write history so?

The fact that the contractors are
not allowed to commence work on the
Phoenix branch until they have received further' orders substantiates the
report, and it is now altogether probable that the Phoenix branch w'U
start  from Midway.
Most of the machinery for the Wan-
oonda mine, in Sheridan camp, has
arrived at Midway, and is Veing taken to the mine as fast as the freight
teams of R Moyrhoff, who has the
contract for hauling it from here to
Wanconda, can take it. There is no
truth in the despatch sent out from
Republic a few days ago, to the
effect that by some oversight the machinery did not come in bond and
that it could not be removed until the
duty was paid. The plant was shipped
in bond and no trouble was experienced in removing it.

being pumpud out of the shaft. The
mill is being put together as rapidly
as possible and mining operations in
all probability will be resumed in the
course of another week.

On Tuesday before the presiding
juJgc of the supreme court in Vancouver an injnetionand a receiver will be
applied for by the Star Mining & Milling Co., againBt the Byron N. White
Co., owning the Slocan Star in Sandon, to restrain them from mining
upon the Heber and Rabbit Paw mineral claims, owned by the plaintiffs.
The defendants claim that the apei
is on the Silversmith, hereas the
general strike is across the Rabbit
I'aw. Defendants say that the general
direction was changed hy a dyke
which stiikes the lead nearly at right
angles, thus giving the apex to the
defendants on the Silversmith.
Another case to come up is on the
application of Patrick W. George
for a rceiver and an injunction
"against Wallace & Miller, restraining and controlling' them from further
