Ninth Year
Feared They Intend to Way
lay Solitary Miners
Unless  Prompt   aud Vigorous  Measures
aie Takeu, Outbreak of Malignant
fever is Probable-
Victoria, April 22.��� ,T. H. Strickland, brother of Captain Strickland of
the mounted police, is in Victoria, on
his way from Dawson to the east.
Mr. Striokland fays that "Soapy "
Smith's gang who were run out (it
Skagway many months ago, have infested Dawson hut are not making any
open demonstration. - Shortly hoforn
he left Dawson thoy disappeared
from the oity, and there was a suspicion that they had gone out to waylay solitary miners coming in wilh
Oolonel Steele in command of the
polioe at Dawson therefore issued a
proclamation stating that convoys
would be sent to each cf the creeks nnd
would take the miners' gold giving
receipts therefor, and bring it into
the city. He also warned miners
against attempting to bring in their
dust without protection of convoys.
Mr. Strickland says tbe unhealthy
state of affairs in Dawson last spring
seems likely to be repented in a much
more aggravated form this year, owing to the larger population and the
accumulation of offensive matter from
several years occupancy of the town-
site. Unless vigorous measures are
taken immediately upon tho opening
of spriiiE to drain the city aud to at
once remove the garbage, a malignant
outbreak of fever is probable.
Ho says the presence of a military
force is altogether uncalled for, pn
lice boiug el' that is needed.
The rovaltv ho  considers   excessive,
nnd   the  reservation   of     alternative
claims for the Government a mistake,
making as it does, tl e difficulties of
the prospectors oven greater than thoy
naturally are.

Encouraged by the Inquiries made of
the American Government by Joseph
Chamberlain into tho interests of the
case, Kev. Stobo, agent of tlio Bible
Society in Quebec, has gone to England, it is said, to start a campaign
against M. Meuler nml to try to raise
f unils lor the defense of I hose whom ho
is seeking lo expel from the island,
An niti'iapt was made tonpen subscriptions for a similar movement in this
illy, Init. it proved a failure.
A demand is made here that the
Canadian Government cable to its representative in London, Lord Strathcona and Mount Royal, instructing
him to publish the facts of this Ant.i-
i-osti affair in England in order to prevent an imposition upon the British
public and the creation of mo'-e bad
Mend between the Governments of
England nud Franoe.
The primary entire of nil tbe trouble
is that a group ofsettlers defy Menier'a
authority upon his own property aud
count upon religious and national prejudice for support in their revolt. They
are described ns pirates nnd wreckers
of the worst description and came originally from Newfoundland, They
squatted on Anticosti without authority nnd live largely upon what thoy
can loot, from vessels wrecked upon
the const of tho inhospitable island.

Mr. Menier complains thnt these
people kill his gnme and tnke his lobsters nnd fish without his permission
and defy his authority in every manner. It is for this reason the French
millionaire has taken measures to
remove the people from the island.
It is reported that M. Menier is expending millions of- money on the
island and, is rapidly transforming it
into an agricultural nud sporting paradise.

Berlin. April 22. -The Meat Inspection bill in the Reichstag und the Midland Canal bill in the Diet have engrossed attention this week throughout Germany. The agrarians and reactionaries oppose both measures and
the ultimate fate of the bills will be
interpreted as evidence of the fighting
strength of the parties. Regarding
the Meat Inspection bill,it was notable
that the debate was practically a repetition of the statements mado at the
United States army beef investigation
in which the worst evidence that jonld
be was brought and the bitterest construction was put on all sorts of American press comments, The reputation
of American packing houses was torn
to sl.n ds by quotations from American
pnhlicnti* ans which were read in ex- I
tenso or which   were   summarized.
It mav he assumed that this will   be
lhe line"of argument put   forward   by1
tho opponents of the bill,for the   com-
ments of the press this   week  were in
sympathy with the agrarians, and al- ;
most entirely consist  of a   reiteration
of   a  charge   which   one   paper   puts
tersely, that,   '"this   Amerioan   menl j
Which Germans   are   expected   to  eat!

that tbe O. 1'. R. had put up a bit-

ment is not prepared to tnke a definite

The   British   newspapers tins week

It is sucRested tbat the "difficulty"
ovor tlie City's banking account might
be overcome tbrougb com promise, giving a portion of tbe account to tbe
Bank of Montreal nud tbe remaining
portion to tlie Merchant's Bank of'
Halifax. There might be value iu rhe
suggestion if it were nor based on nu
entirely wrong assumption. There ii-
no difficulty, and only cbese *wbc
���want to create a difficulty
pretend that there is. The Finance
Committee, as tbey bad a right to do
and were bound to do iu the faithful
discharge of their duty as trustees of
the people, made inquiry of the banks
as to tbe terms on which they would
do the City business Those of the
Merchant's Bauk if Halifax were the
most favorable, and they were recommended for ncceptance. They were
8.ocepted accordingly, iu regular meeting of Couucil and in regular and
lawful manner. Common sense and
common honesty left no other course
possible. The ratepa**** rs elect a Mayi r
and six Aldermen to transact the*
public business, which tbey are sun
posed and expected to do with
same care, diligence, and fidelity tbi .
devote to their own. No honest man
wonld seetc the positiou on anv othi
understanding. The Citv has large
banking transactions, nud a pur: ���
public business is to see that thi ���
conducted with pruden * nnd ���
An Alderman, in his privati
ity as a citizen, may make any terms
he -.ileuses wuh his bunker; hut when
becomes to deal witn the people's
money, m his capacity as trustee, he
will, if at all sensible of bis responsibility, respect his trust und carry it
out to the beat of his ability. It was
with tbis sense of responsibility thai
three Aldermen out of the five who
voted.resolved to study the public interest aud accept the better terms of
tbe Merchant's Bank of Halifnx
There is and can be no difficulty in a
situation of tbis kind. It is too manifestly the hones;, straightforward,
business course to take to coustitute
itself a difficulty, or to be tortured or
twisted iuto one by any process of ingenuity. The whole matter is a plain
simple business transaction, and the
people of Nelson expeot to see it
carried through on ulaiu. simple business principles. But there is more
than this to it now, iu view of all that
has taken place. Members of the
Council owe it to their own reputa
tious ns public men to see thnt the
interests of the City shall be protected, by making tbe best bunking terms
open to them : but in addition they
owe it to tbe community iu general to
see thut it siiali be spared the indignity
of   having   an   honest attempt   to  do
public   business  in   n  business  way
frustrated.   Anything like compromise
now   would   be   a reproach   to  everv
person   concerned iu it.    Oompromiff
might   hnve   been  honorable at  Oral
after what has taken pl.i **.   it  Is   im
possille     It would be a direct 61
agemeut to   the boodle   element iu the
City to exploit it whenevei the opportunity offend   it   wonld be a pnbll

corporation an :��� I conducted on   business prlncipl

was 4.oiio. so that if separated fro u
Yule. Cariboo and Lillooot. it would

doubtless correct, and very interesting.
But why u redistribution at all on
the eve of a census! There wns no
gerrymander in British Columbia to
ondo'why then,disturb the present con-'
stitneneies until the distribution of

Somehow a little patch of sun stole
over tbe ground �� hero our party were
resting. Then- nn uniched the storm
olouds gather.rolllng tlnv; u from the Silver King, bringing lain uud wind with
them. (Ireat bodies of gruy mist burned
before us and iu fancy wo could hoar
through tbe bowling blast tbe cry uf

the wrath of Wotnn. Some such
sreue as this must, have inspired the

and the other heroes nud heroines ot
German mythology till tbo bonis crept

came the sun. dispelling the storm
clouds mid gilding the snow cupped
peaks towering above us;, nd we scorned to see the gilded towers of Wal-
hnlln, tho 06leBt-i.fi home nf tbe gods

It has two parallel ledges within ailis-
tam-es of 2b feet, both of which are
crosscut by a tunnel which is now in
98 feet. The first of thesu ledges in
decomposed quartz, 17 feet wide, anil
currying good values in gold. The
highest assay obtained from this vein
was $28.5(i iu gold per ton. The second
ledge carries solid white iron, from
which it series of assays taken ranged
between $2. oti aud fO, ISO in gold per
