Ninth Year.
HININEr ACTIVITY
IN
The Tear Just Closing Has
Been a Good One.
A  BRILLIANT  FUTURE
Holds a Record Up to Date for Heavy
Producers and Economy of
Operation.
When war with Spain was declared
last Spring by the United States, the
common verdict was that mining activity in tbe Slocan wonld be checked
and that very little in the way of
new investments of capital wonld be
made during the summer. The summer and fall have not borne out the
verdict. The Slocan country has
gone steadily forward in its development. Old investments have beeu
strengthened and new 01103 made. At
the present time it is doubtful if
any one, not in clone touch with the
movements of capital, realizes to what
extent it is getting its grasp on the
cream of the Slocan district. For
steady producers and economy of operation the Slocan surpasses all other
Kootenay districts. While the heavy
deals consummated in the Trail district
have made that section notorious, the
shipments and smelter returns from
the Slocan are very attractive to the
praotioal mining investor. Kven with
the air full of rumors of a world-wide
war to result through European sympathies with the two combatants,
mining development in the Slocnn
went steadily forward. It is not
unlikely that in some cases investments of capital inexperienced in
mining may have been retarded by
the excitements and uncertainties attendant upnu the war. lint is equally
true that the experienced mining
capitalist has kept steadily at work
in the Slocan with his eyn on the future. It seems only necessary to point
to the smelter returns from the Slocan
for the past five years to convince any
mnn that a country which can produce such results in no short a time
and Willi Su Inliti work done on its
ledges has a future no one can afford
to neglect. Many of the best prospects
remain yet untouched by development
so vast is the extent of its ledges. In
a section of country littlo more than
fifteen by twenty-five miles iu extent, radiating directly north from
Nelson, moro gold and silver have
been produced iu either of the last two
;years than has been brought out of
'.the entire Klondike country since the
-return of the first gold laden ship. In
W.I7 this same stretch of mineral
land prodnoed more in smelter returns
than all the balanco of the West Kootenay district combined, and paid in
dividends double the amount paid
by any other West Kootenay division.
The returns for the current year have
not yet been compiled to dato but that
they far exceed the output of 1807 goes
without saying.
The past year, despite the prophecies
at the beginning, has proved one of
nnusual significance to the Slocan.
A number of notable properties have
beeu developed from prospeots only to
valuable mines. It is the purpose
herein to mention the more important
of these properties,
GOLDEN WEDGE GROUP.
The Golden Wedge group lios north
from Nelson about six miles. A your
ago today it was an undeveloped pros
pect. Today it is a fully equipped
mine, with large ore bodies in sight.
During the summer a wagon-road
has been constructed from Nelson to
the property, a sawmill erected at
the company's town-site of Oro, and
a ten-stamp mill erected for the -treatment of the company's ore. A large
force of men are at work developing
and taking out ore for the mill which
it is expected to put into operation
within the month. Free-milling
ledges are not common in the Kootenay country but the Golden Wedge iB
one of them. Other free milling ledges
have beeu opened up in the vicinity
of the Wedge, and it is almost assured
that great activity will prevail there
another season, as several surrounding
properties have been bonded to strong
companies among theni the Gold
Bank and Gold Book claims just
aoroM the gulob from the Wedge upon
whioh remarkably rich veins have
been uncovered,
The Monument group lies about the
same distance from Nelsou, . Although
some work bad beon done ou this
property, the previous season it was
not until the past year that it was
bonded to strong parties for $90,000 on
a year's bond. A force of men aro at
work upon it and the future of the
property is praotioally assured.
Among the large lower grade leads to
attract attention ' the past season and
pass under the control of capital, is
the Orezenten group on the divide between the Slocan River and Kootenay
Lake. This property is reported bonded/to a strong English syndicate already operating in the Slocan and bb
a large body of  ore  has been encoun
tered on the surface which can be
traced down the face of a cliff nearly
800 feet, it is more than likely that
the report that development nn a large
scale will be commenced in the Spring
is correct.
The Ohapleau, on the First North
Fork of Lemon Greek, although a good
producer for the past two years,^
has taken on new importance the past
season by fine body of high grade
gold ore averaging $100 to the ton from
the smelter, which has been opened
up in the lower tunnel The property
is being worked this winter by tbe
owners and the usual shipments will
be made when the rawhide season
opens. It is estimated that there are
1000 tons of ore now in sight in the
workngs.
ON THE ARLINGTON.
Progress in the development of the
famous Arlington on Springer Greek
has been more than satisfactory.
Large bodies of ore have been uncovered in the lower workings and the per-
manenoy of the ledge more than ever
assured. This property has passed
out from under the control of the old
company and it is said upon authority
that as soon bb the details of the
transfer are completed new hands will
take charge nod mnke the property
what it can easily be made, one of
the richest of Slocan's big   producers
The Enterprise continues to startle
even its owners with the amount of
ore opening up Development work
has been prosecuted systematically
throughout the year, with the result
that the price has advanced to tbe
half million mark where its owners
steadfastly held it, in spite of many
tempting offers made for it, including
those of the B. A. O. No ore is being taken out at present, the en tire
force being kept on development work.
A Massachusetts syndicate, said to
have ample financial backing, is
quietly at work on Mineral Hill, near
Slocan City. Work has been begun
by then on the Medina group upon
which large lead carrying steel galena
is being explored. Work is also being
done ou the Erin Fraction and the
Standard, adjoining claims. Mining
exports who have examined this hill
are uanimous iu their belief that a
large body of ore will be opened up
on it. splendid high and low grade
leads cutting through it in all directions.
A year ago two determined owners
of the Evening Star claim on Dayton
Greek wcro hard at work ou what
was thought by some to be a forlorn
hope. But they had soen enough to
satisfy themselvos of the wisdom of
their work. Before the last day of
the year they had encountered such a
fine showing of ore that Mr. Hugh
Sutherland, hearing of it, came down
from the north aud took a year's bond
on the property for $50,000, Today
Mr. Sutherland has a large force of
men at work developing tho property
with the moat satisfactory results. A
steam hoist has been erected to enable further work to be done in the
shaft, although the property is essentially a tunnelling proposition. The
ore runs considerably over $100 to the
ton. Twenty-five men are now at
work and the force will be increased
with the commencement of work ou
the Columbia adjoining, also owned by
Mr. Sutherland.
SALE OF THE JOKER GROUP.
Probably one of the most significant,
as well as one of the heaviest deals
put through this fnll in the Slocan,
was the sale to a London company
of the Joker Group on the headwaters
of Kaslo Creek. Although the deal
was only closed iu September the coin-
uany has erected building and has a
force of men working day and night
opeuiug np the ledge. Plans are being drawn up for a plant to bo erected
ou the property in the Spring for the
treatment of the ore, which has been
found in a large body running over
three ounces in cold to the ton on the
avorage. The syndicate has ample
funds for the thorough developments
ot the group whioh promises to excel
us a producer in a camp where the
famed Mollis Gibson mine has set a
high standard of values. "Camp
Mansfield," as it has come to bo called
promise to be n lively scene in the
spring, several deals being ou the carpet for nearby and adjoining claims to
the Joker. Tho Joker is being operated under the direction of Mr. Ernest Mansfield, whose vigorous meth
ods aru largely responsible for the
very satisfactory showing already
matlo on tho property.
Without going into detail the following are some of the Slocan properties
which have passed under the control
of good companies during the past
summer, the Orezenten, Golden
Wedge, Monument group, Little Bonanza and Caledonia, Gold Bank
and Gold Rook, Southern Chief, Medina group, Evening Star and Columbia, the Boauni, Emily Edith, Fidelity, Congo and others of which
thore aro only unconfirmed rumors. ,
Aside from those prospectors and owners have been hard at work on their
claims with the result that more development work bus beon done by the
locator' this season tlinn in nuy three
years previous.
And still thf.re are rumors of large
deals rn come. What promised to lie
a quiet season iu the entire mining
world has proven to be a red letter
year in the Slocan, aud if this district does not enjoy its most substantial boom with tho opening of Spring
there is no virtue in tho signs of the
times.	
VACANCY AT VICTORIA.
AI All ALLIANCE
An Exponent of the Anglo-
American Cause.
FOR MUTUAL SUPPORT
Sentiments Expressed La*t Night in a
on   Foreign
Affairs.
London, Deo. 3.���Sir Edward
Grey, Liberal Member of Parliament
for Berwick-ou-Twced, who was Under Seoretary of State for Foreign
Affairs in Lord Rosebery's Cabinet
and who was the spokesman of Lord
Rosebery's Government in the memorable declaration as to Great Britain's
Egyptian policy, made in tbe House of
Commons in 1895, spoke tonight on
foreign affiairs at Blackburn, in Lancashire. Referring to the magnificent
effect on the relations between tbe
United States and Great Britain, accomplished by the free press of a free
people on each side of the Atlantic
expressing the generous impulses of
each nation, he said :
"I would rather have the free: play
of this national sentiment, which is
enriching the publio life of both countries, than a written alliance. We
have finally to realize a double patriotism���the patriotism of country and the
patriotism of race. There is a common bond between the two ��� peoples,
aud we should look in times of peace
to see the sentiment growing and iu
times of disturbance to find iu it something upon which we could lean for
mutual support."
Sir Edward Grey condemned the
"attempts of some conservative
speakers to make paiticipal out of this
understanding" and expressed a hope
that both Germany and the United
States "may decline more and more
to our policy of tbe 'Open Door'
which will lend to a great improvement in trade throughout the world."
WILL LET IT DROP.
United   States   Will   Not Insist Upon
Possession of Strong Island.
Washington, D. C, Dec. 8.���After
the cabinet meeting today it w: B
stated that nothing had been heard
from Paris respecting the failure of
tbe peace commissioners to negnti
ate the purchase of Strong island,
one of the Caroline group, nor is the
matter regarded as of great consequence. Iu any event, it is not; vital
to the treaty of peace, and if the
Spaniards show an inclination not to
part with it, the matter will be allowed to drop. Secretary Gage remained
un hour after the other members of
the cabinet had left tho White House,
during which the president read that
part of his message to congress relating
to the flunnces. Secretary Gage regards the message as one of the most
important to Congress in many   years.
The Cabinet discussed at some length
the administration of the government
of the Island of Cuba going into details, santintion, the personel of tho
govergnment and other matters. A
military government of course will
exist for some time, unless Congress,
as is not deemed probable, otherwise
directs at the ensuing session.
Immediately upon the occupation of
the various c.ities prompt steps are to
be taken to put them in the best sauitnry
condition possible and plans were discussed today as to how best to meet
the largo expenses which involve
without unduo taxation.
IMPRESSIVE
Opening of  the
CEREMONY.
Reorgauizd  Supreme
Court, of Sauting o.
Santiago De Cuba, Dec. 2.���The
opening of the recently reorganized
Supreme Court today was an impressive ceremony. Chief Justice Eoh-
everria and the Associate Justices,
prior to the opening, called at the Palace, where they wore roceievd by
Gen. Leonard Wood, after which,
with Gneeral Wood and his aides, Mr.
Robert Porter and others, thoy wore
driven to the Supreme Court chamber. Here the Judges donned their
robes of office and passed to the court
room. Gen. Wood, in a few forceful
words, opened tho proceedings, delivering the court, in the name of the
United States Government, to the
Chief Justice and his assistants aud
demanding from the public implicit
obedience to the courts decisions and
decrees. His pronouncement was
translated into Spanish. Chief Justice Ecbeverria replying, accepted
the judicial offices in the name of justice, formally recognizing, the United

FILIPINOS STILL
TALKING OFWAB
Say They Have Stood Torture Long Enough.
WANT THEIR FREEDOM
With Their Blood They Will Defend Their
Country From New
Slavery-
Manila Deo a.���Owing to the faot
that the result of the Paris conferences has long been anticipated here,
the agreement of Spain to cede the
Philippine Islands to the United
States created no exoitement. The
Americans made no demonstration and
commercial circles were relieved.
Tho Spaniards were indifferent and
some of . the American volunteers
were disgusted at the rospect of being
detained here now that the fighting
is finished. Aguinaldo is certain to
assnme a conciliatory attitude because
his postion is daily becoming more
untenable. His rival intrigues are
becoming uncontrollable, especially
since funds have run short and the
outlying provinces have become disaffected. Although never much more
than a figure head Aguinaldo bad
been consistently temperate and the
authorities have no reason to fear
that he will depart from hia policy.
Nevertheless the newspapers continue
to publish inflamable articles. The
Republics Filipiua this morning
publishes an article headed: "The
moment has arrived"and says: "When
the conference terminated its labors
the Filipinos had already conquered
all of the island of Luzon aud the adjacent islands except the towns nf
Iloilo, Cebu, Leyte.and Samar. The:..-
fore Spain has ceded sovereignty
which she does not possess. The Filipinos will never consent to the ignominy of being treated as chattels.
They will shed their blood in torrents
again before bowing to a foreign dominion however light.
"America brought the great chief
Aguiualdo from Hong Kong and recognized our nationality by allowing our
flag to be raised at Corrieediior island
aud to sail the bay in full sight of all
the foreign fleets. None dared to interfere. If America now declines to
openly acknowledge our independence
a great injustice will be committed.
Had Spain asked $40,000,000 lor the islands the Filipinos would gladly have
given twice that amount or more to
preserve their rights ruthlessly set
aside by the enemy and the nation
without a true understanding of the
aspirations, rights and sacrifice of those
who have stood torture enough ; who
are left to fight and suffer in defence
of their country from new slavery."
The article affirms the friendship
of the Filipinos for Americans, aud insists that the insnrgouts will never fire
the first shot and adds that the harmony existing with only be broken
by "priests or trnitors inducing the
Americans to attack us."
SILVER CURRENCY,
The Basis of the   Monetary  System of
tho Philippines.
Washington, Dec. 2.���Mr. Edward
T. Harden, who as United States commissioner, investigated the financial
and industrial conditions iu the Phil'
ippinc islands, lias made a report to
the Secretary of the Treasury. The
report says silver is the basis of the
currency in the islands. There has
been no gold in circulation for more
than twenty years. Tho Mexican dollar is practically the only money in
general circulation. The question of
the future currency of the islands is
one nf vital importance to all business
men. The bent-informed men in Manila are unanimous iu the opinion that
under the present condition the silver
currency is the only one suited to
the islands. The natives of tho is
lands are conservative to a degree in
the matter of their currency and it
would bo a hard matt* r to educate
them to a dollar which would be worth
twice that now in circulation.
DR AWINgTto" A" CLOSE.
Counsel in the Ponton   Bank Robbery
Case Address the Jury.
Napaneo, Ont., Dec. 2.���In the Ponton bank robbery case the court opened this morning with Mr. E. Guss
Porter, Ponton's counsel, addressing
the jury. He declared Ponton innocent, and said the crown had failed in
every particular to establish any guilt
whatever outside of the evidence of
two notorious crooks and criminals.
Mr. Portor went on to show how Ponton's innocence had been clearly proven by evideuce given by upright aud
respected citizens . of Napunee and
Belleville. He declared Fare's aud
Holden's evidence against Ponton
was had on information regarding the
ex-teller's habits, etc . which they ob
tained while preparing to rob tbe
bank It did not . strengthen the
crown's case, as it differed in many
particulars. Holden, Porter further
pointed out, bad sworn  that he would
not believe his accomplice,Pare,under
oath. Porter declared it ahd not been
proved in any way that Ponton had
given out any information about the
Bank nor had it been even attempted
to be proved that Ponton had been
teen with Pare or Holden. In conclusion. Mr. Porter asked no sympathy
for his client as he was innocent
and had been unjustly accused.
"We know" he said, addressing the
jury" tbat you will do your duty,
and nothing but your duty. If you
should err at all err on his Bide. If
you onoe say guilty there will be no
recalling tbe word and that boy mast
be condemned to a criminal cell."
Porter spoke between two and three
hours and on his oomlnsion was congratulated by bis friends. Mr. Olser
then took the jury in hand.
KITCHENER POPULAR.
The Sidar Had a Lively  Time in London Yesterday..
London, Deo. 2.���Gen. Lord Kitchener at the Mansion House today, addressed a large meeting of bankers
and merchants wbo are pledged to the
support of the scheme of establishing
a Gordon memorial at Khratoum.
A great crowd was assembled outside. When the Sidar appeared in
the strest after tbe meeting was over,
the crowd broke through tbe polioe
cordon and swept down upon him.
One woman oried: "God Bless You"
and tried to shake his band. The
Sidar fled and after dodging among
omnibuses aud other vehicles, finally
succeeding in eluding his pursuers
and gaining a Bide street. Later Gen.
Kitchener visited the stook exchange
and told the members tbat be had come
to get 100,000 pounds. He was received
with  tremendous cheers.
CLAIMS  FOR   REDRESS
SOME    QUESTIONS   THE   UNITED
STATES MUST CONSIDER.
Their Folic; of Expansion Involves tome
Unlooked for Propositions-
Washington, Dec. 2.���The United
States government is being called upon
to face some questions of interest, resulting from the expansion poli.'iy.
The British government some time before the annexation of Hawaii to the
United States, filed with Hawaii a
number of claims for redress for ill
treatment and illegal confinement of
British subjects, involved iu the revolutionary movement which overthrew
the Queen. Those amount to several
hundred thousand dollars in the aggro
gate aud the question is that the Hawaiian Government having failed to
settle them whether the United States
Government does not inherit liability.
The claims are just such as were filed
by the Late Secretary Gresham against
the Hawaiian Government on behalf
of a number of alleged American
citizens, most of whom nfterwards
turned out to be aliens. None of the
latter claims were pressed, but they
formed the foundation for the British
claims.
Another question of more importance is the determination of tho status of Borne of the newly acqnireu citizens or subjeots Already a Chinaman by birth, but a Philippine by
citizenship, has applied for recognition
as an American citizen. Another
Chinaman in Hawaii wants a passport
showing that he is a citizin of the
United States. The annexation law
prohibits the coming into the limits
of the United States of Chinese from
Hawaii, but, the constitutionality
of any act that, proposes to discriminate among American citizens has
been raised and this Chinaman is
a citizen by adoption. These aro a
few of the questions that have already arisen and others aro expected
to follow in the   near future.
SECURE CONCESSIONS.
SpBin   Said   to   Have   Secured  Trade
Privileges in the Philippines,
Loudon, Deo. 8 ���The Madrid correspondent of the Daily News Bays :
It is officially announced that the
Spanish Peace Commissioners have
soCured a concession granting Spain
commercial advantages in the Philippines for ten years. An effort will be
made to secure a similar concession
iu tbe Antilles. Tliu Carl 1st agitation
is being exploited by the Bourse and it
is therefore nescessary to take alarming news with a grain of salt.
BY UNIVERSAL SUFFRAGE.
Paris, Dec. 2.���Iu the Chambor
of Deputies, today. M. Qautbier, Republican, introduced a measure providing for the election of Senators by
universal suffrage aud demanded
urgency. The Premier, M, Dupuy,
opposed the granting of urgency and
said the chamber should think twice
before dejiding upon a proposition
changing tbe whole oloetoral system.
Urgencv, howover, was adopted by a
vote of 243 to 228.
WARSHIP ORDERED TO NANKIN.
Pekin. Dec. 2.���Owing to the
presence of a French wnrship at
Nankin a British warship has beeu or-'
derail there to protect the interests of
Great Britain. The question of the
extension of the American and British
settlements at Shanghai is likely to
be favorably deoided at an   early  date
NAVAL VESSELS ON
TIE GREAT LAKES
Anglo-American Commission
Considering the Question.
HAS   NOT  YET  ACTED
Publish a Statememt to This Effeot  Because of Many Recent
Burners-
Washington, Dec. 2.���In view of a
statement pnblis ed today to the
effect that a committee of the Anglo-
American Commission had accepted
the recommendations of a United
States Naval Com mission as to tbe
building of warships on the Great
Lakes, Lord Herschell and Senator
Fairbanks, representing all parties on
the commission, have united in the
following:
"The statement tbat an agreement
has been arrived at by the sub-com-
���r.ittee appointed to consider the
question of naval vessels ou the Great
Lakes, is altogether incorrect. - The
matter is still under discussion."
This is the only informaion whioh
the commission will authorize on the
subject and the statement is the first
official information that the question
has been under discussion. How far
the discussion has prooeeded is not officially disclosed, although it is generally understood that progress baa
been made in reconciling the several
differences which exist between the
United States and Canada on the Great
Lakes, including some concession relative to building and maintaining
warships. Tbe joint commission
was in session for a short time, giving wi tA>u a moctinir of tbe American
members. There will be no meeting
tomorrow, the commission having accepted an invitation to go to Annapolis to inspect the naval academy.
In the afternoon, Mr. Knsson, and Sir
Richard Cartwright, acting as i committee, held a meeting at the state department lasting nearly two hours.
The subject under consideration was
the elimination of the boundary between Alaska and the British possessions. Dr. King, of Canada, was
called as an expert.
WILL   RESENT   INSULTS.
Cuban   Officers   Tire   of Spanish  and
American Insolence.
Havana, Deo. 2.���Tbe executive
committee of the Cuban Assembly
agreed at its last session to make it
compulsory upon the part of any Cuban officers insulted by Spanish, Americans, or other officers to challenge the
provoker to fight a duel. The measure lias two aims according to the
Cubans.
First.���."To maintain the dignity
of tho Cuban army." And secondly
���"To check the impudence and insolence of many so-called Cuban officers
who without having ever put their
courage to a test, having eulisted after
the armistice and swaggering about
with Cuban un if onus, endeavoring to
offend Spanish oflloers."
It is learned ou good authority tbat
the Cubans havo recently and secretly
acquired quite a formidable armament,
the ulterior object of which is not
known. It is added that thoy have
purchased ovor 8000 rifles within the
last ten days and the fact that they
are continuing to purchase arms and
ammunition, is causing considerable
speculation here.

IT   DOES   NOT FOLLOW.
The current issue of the Mining
Critic contains a report of tbe last
meeting of tbe Golden Cache shareholders, together with an article dealing somewhat freely with the management of the company and its affairs
as disclosed at the meeting. The
criticisms of tbe Mining Critic may
be deserved; on that point we are
not prepared to express an opinion,
nor do we regard it as a matter of very
great concern excepting to those who
are immediately interested. We feel
constrained, however, to take decided
objeotion to tbe remark of our contemporary when it says: "The Golden
Cache failures���for it amounts to
that���will affect the mining interests of tbe Province most prejudicially. It will give the Province, and
particularly the Lillooet district,
what mining men term a'black eye'."
There may he failure in the operations of the Golden Cache company,
and failure may be due either to misfortune in the location or w dishonesty
in the management. But in neither
case can it prejudicially affect the
mining interests of the Province. If
failure is due to dishonesty, it would
only prove that -pe have gentlemen
of sharp business methods in British
Columbia as well as trta.v have elsewhere. We suspect this is a discovery
that is not now made for tbe first
time, aud that whenever made it did
not prove a particularly startling one.
If failure is due to poverty of location,
the effect will be even less prejudicial.
The Lillooet country may be remarkably rich in the precious metals,
but heretofore it has uot borne that
reputation. If men choose to put
their money into a mine in a district
not celebrated for mines, they have
little cause to feel disapi ointment if
the venture does uot prove successful.
Failure in Lillooet cannot affect, in
the opinion of any reflecting person,
the Lardeau, tbe Slocan, the Nelson,
tbe Rossland, and tbe score of other
districts whose richness is a demonstrated fact. It the Golden Cache
people had invested in either of these
they would today have something to
���bow for their money; because they
did not is not a reason why an experiment in Lillooet whioh may prove
disastrous should prejudicially affect
well established reputations outside
of Lillooet.
The latest and straugest of the political rumi.rs coming out from Ottawa
is to the effoct that Lieutenant-Governor Patterson, of Manitoba, is to enter the Laurier Government on the
expiration of bis term. As that will
not occur for nearly two years���to be
exact, in Stptember, 1900���tbe speculation is decidedly of the long-range
variety. No one seems to be able to
suggest the slightest reason why one
of the most loyal of Sir John Macdon-
ald's followers should forsake his party
in this abrupt fashion. The story is
no doubt the invention of tome idle
and mischief-loving mind, of which
there is always a generous assortment
at Ottawa.
'' Mining is yet in its infanoy on
Vancouver Island," says the travelling correspondent of the New York
Engineering and Mining Journal,
"but the prospects are quite promising, while tbe clo.��e proximity of coking coal and milestone to the sulphide
ore bodies offer superior inducements,
for the ereciton of smelters at least,
on the Island. The shipment of ore
from the west coast mines by steamer
can be done at a very low cost, even
to Swansea smelters, if the average
grade will warrant"
EDITORIAL COMMENT-
(Ottawa Free Press.)
The Montreal correspondent of the
Toronto World has decreed the absolution of Parliament "in June." The
year is not named. One thing is certain, it will not be   1899.
(San Francisco Bulletin.)
Mrs. P. T.   Barnum, widow  of  the
great showman, married for   her   second husband   Demertius Calluis Bey,
a Greek in the   Turkish   service,   and
is now to take a   French  nobleman as
her third life partner. If old " P  T. "
knows   what   is   going how he  must
regret his inability to   add   this  new
growing collection of his relict to  his
old-time "greatest show on earth."

AFFAIRS IN THE YUKON.
One of the latest to testify to the
improvement of things under theOgil-
vie regime in the Yukon is Mr.
Woodworth, barrister, late of Edmonton, who sends out a letter for publication that is full of interest. "Ogil-
vie has come in," he says, "and the
reign of terror is over. Men breathe
more freely and a sense of security
prevails tbat has hitherto never existed." The affairs of tho post offioe,
which have been a fruitful sonrce of
complaint, have been straightened
out, and proper accommodation has
been provided for the various Government offices. In addition to the latter,
regulations are enforced whioh afford
reasonable facilities to the public for
the dispatch of business without the
exaction of blackmail. This would
seem to have been one of the crying
necessities of the place, as clerks are
said to have made from $ 100 to $500 a
day in illicit tees, and some of them
are now worth their hundreds of
thousands of dollars. That a period
has been put to this scandal is in
itself cause for congratulation. Old
officials have gone out, and new, and
on the whole better, ones have been
put in their places. But one wonders
what they succeeded iu pocketing,
when subordinates have been able to
make such comfortable fortunes.
It was said some time ago that there
would be an investigation into th*
affairs of the Yukon. No doubt they
were loose and corrupt enough to
require it; hut now that Mr. Ogilvie
has redressed grievances and reformed

FOE A HOOKEY LEAGUE LOCAL AND PERSONAL.
EFFOBTS  BEING MADE   TO   POEM
ONE IN THE KOOTENAYS.
Nelson, RoBslaid, Sandon and Kaslo Will
be the Towns EepreBented in
the Organization,
C. Beaaloy, secretary of the Nelson
Hookey Club, is interesting himself
with others in tbe formation of n Kootenay hockey league. In addition to
Nelson, the olubs of Easlo, Rossland
and Sandon will be asked to take a
hand in the movement and if the
efforts being made prove successful the
oitizens of the towns mentioned will
see some first class sport this winter.
Each of the four towns has a good
hookey club and much interest would
be taken in a contest for the championship of the Kootonays. A schedule could be arranged providing for
three championship games in each
town, or more if thought advisable.
Thus each town in the league would be
visited by the olubs of the other three
towns and every enthusiast would
have an opportunity of seeing his
favorite team pitted against all other
towns in the league.
With tho completion of the new rink
now being erected in Nelson, the local
olub will have a splendid home and
the best rink in the proposed league.
There are good hockey players in Nelson
as well as in the other towns, aud
first class hockey should be witnessed.
That the league wonld be a snecess,
financially, then is little doubt. So
far as Nelson is concerned there is
no doubt. Nelson is essentially a
sporting city and the club representing
this oity would have the support of almost every citizeus. Other towns in
the league would probably be in the
same position. ,

The court of appeals in Victoria has
handed down nn important decision
overruling the judgment of Chief Justice McColl in the east of Peters and
Sampsou. The Chief Justice had
given judgment for the defendants
on the ground that the Gold Commissioner had no power to grant an extension of time iu which to do and
record his assessment work.
The plaintiffs appealed, and judgment- was rendered reversing the
Chief Justice's decision and doolaring
that the "gold cure" mineral claim,
owned by the plaintiffs, was a valid
location as against the Bismarck.
Messrs. Macdonald & Johnson were
for the plaintiff, and Messrs. Mo-
Ann & McKay for the defendant.

STANDING ARMY INCREASE.
Mr. R. Balfour, of L-angley, B. 0.,
at one time Superintendent of Bridges
for the Canadian Paciflo Railway Company east of the Mountains, but later
engaged with Contractor Armstrong
in construction work on the Crow's
Nest Pass Road, was in Vanoouver
a few days ago To e Newi-Advertiser
representative, Mr. Balfour spoke in
an interesting manner of the work on
the road.
"Yes, they put up a good road
there," said Mr. Balfour. "A one
per cent grade, "he went on, "about
the only road on the Continent, crossing a main range of mountains with
tbat grade."
"That was a record in railway
building, this construction of the
Crow's Nest line, was it not?"
"I think it is a record, about a mile
a day and practically an unexplored
country. It is all a mining country
through whioh the line passes, coal,
Gold and silver abound. "
"Did you see the rich coal field?" ,
"That is the one portion of the lino
I have not been to. But from report,
the whole country must be very rich.;
so rich that it would be no mistake
to build a railway 100 miles from
any other line of railway anywhere up
there.''
4' Is there any speoial point connected
with the Crow's Nest Pass line that
came under your   notice?"
"There is one point that seems to
have been overlooked and that is that
this line is a thoroughly Canadian
road. It was built by Canadians,
the Manager of Construction is a Can.
adian, the engineers were Canadians,
the contractors wore Canadians and
many of the workmen also. They
have run away with the idea aoross
the line tbat we have to go to tbe
American side when we want to build
railways, but you see they have made
a mistake.''
"Now as to your speoial department
Mr. Balfour���tha bridges���there was
much work in that direotion was
there not?"
"Yes, it was very heavy. East of the
mountains they had something over
16,000,000 feet of timber put in.
That was done in the face of the most
inclement weather. The idea had
never beeu thought of before that they'
could do bridge work iu that climate
in the winter time; not that it was
such very bad weather had there not
beeu such very high winds. Why, a
wind would come along and take up a
heavy plunk whioh was lying Hat ou
the ground,"
"But you   overcame the wind?"
"Yes, by machiiiery. Tho work
was mostly done by machinery. We

"tiy machinery it must be very
much cheuper?"
"Uf course framing by machinery
is cheaper, much quicker aud so much
better.''
"Which is the biggest bridge?"
'' Well, there are two,'' laughed Mr.
Balfour, "the St. Marys'bridge over
tbe river of that unme and tbe South
Fork bridge over the Old Man River.
The South Fork structure is the highest and the St. Mary's the longest;
that is east of the mountains.''
Washington, Dec. 2.���Gen. Miles
has prepared a draft of a bill providing for a regular standing army of
100,000 men. The bill it is added
will provide for an organization of 12
companies to one regiment and an arrangement for a third lieutenant for
each company in cose of need for: that
officer.

recent gale did great damage to wnt-
erside property aud fishing establishments along the northern part of the

Madrid, Dec. 2.���Premier Senor Sa-
gasta at the cabinet meeting today,
described tbe Carliat movements in a
number of the provinces, and said the
