Nelson, British Columbia. Friday, December 2, 1898.
Ninth Year
to mm their
United   States of Central
America Give Up.
THE UNION DISSOLVED
Suooesi of the Eevolution in Salvador Aids
Oonaiderably  in the
Break Up.
Washington, Deo. 1.���The dissolution of the United States of Central
America after a national existence of
less than a month, is announced in
a despatch received by one of the
highest officialsa of Central America
today. It states that the success of
the revolution in Salvador and the
overthrow of President Guterrez led to
a meeting of the three coramissiones
who formed the executive bead of tbe
union until tbe President was elected,
and a decision was reached to abandon
the Union, leaving each of the three
states forming it, Nicaragua, Salvador and Honduras to resume its former status as an independent sovereign
nation.
When the Union was formed on
Nov. 1, last, Messrs. Calligos, Mathus
and Ugarte were placed in charge until the presidential eleoiton was held
this month. It is this excutive commission which has now determined
to abandon the plan of a union. In
addition to the foregoing depatch the
State Department has been advised
through Minister Merry and also
through one of the consular officers
that the uprising in Salvador bad
been successful and that peace was restored after much disorder.
American officials said today tbat on
the ruins of this attempt at a union
might be built a more substantial union embracing all five of the states of
Central America. The absence of
Costa Rica and Guatemala from this
last attempt at union operated largely
towards its failure.
WELCOMED HOME.
Bmporor Wlllinsi  Lively Received at
Berlin.
Berlin, Deo. 1.���At the reception to
Emperor William today upon his return from his recent visits the Burgomaster referred to the works of
peaoe achieved by the Emperor and by
the Empress, who, as His Majesty's
faithful companion bad shared all bis
exertions. The Emperor in replying, after cordially shaking hands
with the Burgomaster, dwelt upon
the magnificent impressions his visit
to the oast bad left upon him and expressed pleasure at being home again.
His Majesty added that everywhere
in the east he found the Germans
were highly esteemed and he expressed
the hope tbat his journey would help
to open new markets for German enterprise, beside strengthening international peace. In conclusion, Emperor
William thanked the Burgomaster for
the patriotio reception accorded bim
by the capital to which His Majesty
wished a most prosperous future.
Then followed by the flag and standard bearers, the Emperor rode through
the Brandenburger gate and lines of
tbe guards corps which were drawn
up along the Unter Den Linden to
the Lustgarteu where the parade was
held. The Emperor drove in a carriage. Throughout His Majesty's pass
ing tbe church bells were rung and
the crowds cheered the Emperor.
WHISKEY IN ALASKA.
Sixty Thousand  Gallons Smuggled  in
in One Year.
Washington, Deo. 1.���Tbe annual report of Gov. Brady, of Alaska, was
made publio today. The governor
declares that "it would seem as impossible to prevent the smuggling of
liquor into Alaska as it would be to
prevent the clouds from rolling by or
the tide from ebbing or flowing. " And
adds:
"Tbe more that the collector and
his force stop the importation of
liquors on the steamers, the better it is
for the smugglers. For the past
year muoh foreign liquor has gone up
the Summits on the Dyea and Skag-
way trails. A portion of this has
found its way back to be sold in the
numerous saloonB in each of these
towns.
"Seizures by the onstomH officers for
the past year have probbaly amounted
to 3,600 gallons. The amount of
liquor smuggled will probably amount
to 60,000 gallons. None of this foreign liquor has at any time brought
any revenue to the United States. "
A GHOST STORY.
The   Ainsworth   Loses   No   Time  in
Resuming Her Voyage.
A strnnge story is current in town
to which several witnesses are willing
to swear, aud to which one of them,
Jim Howarth ol the Hercules, did
swear to a Miter representative last
night.
It appears that on Tuesday evening
about the time the Ainsworth went
down, the Hercules was coming
through the Narrows when a steamer
have in sight.having no lights but the
port light. The Hercules drew aside
to let her pus, and as she got nearer
it was seen that it was the Ainsworth.
Surprised at seeing her there at such
a time, the whole crew turned out to
watch her go by, and to their amazement and consternation she passed
without noise or ripple, aud the crew
stood spell-bound as the latest "phantom ship" vanished into the shades of
the night.
The crew questioned those on board
the Surprise, which came down
shortly j a'.tei, and they too averred
they had seen the same thing. They
also located the probable position of
every boat on the lake, bnt could not
account for the phenomenon in that
way.
Nothing will persuade the crew of
the Hercules, bnt that the Ainsworth,
despairing of lining again used as a
passenger steamer, has taken to plying
her accustomed route in ghostly wise.
The most extraordinary part of the
story, however, is that the orew of
the Hercules are equally emphatic in
their assertations that they had no
whiskey aboard.
FOR LESE  MAJESTE.
Frank Knaak, of New York, and  His
Trouble in Berlin.
Berlin, Dec. 1.���The lawyer representing M. Frank Knaak of New York
who is under arrest here on a charge
of lose maje8te, has not succeeded iu
obtaining his client's release on bail.
It appears that Mr. Knaak had
been celebrating Thanksgiving Day
somewhat imprudently and this led
to his making the incriminating remark in a restaurant. The offeusive
words it is understood were: "Calf's
head." If it is proved that he applied
these words to the Emperor it is
likely that he will be sentenced to a
year's imprisonment. The defence is
that the words were not applied to the
Kaiser but to a name sake of Mr.
Knaak.
ENQUIRY MAY BE MADE
OFFICIALS WILL VISIT THE WBE0K
OF THE AIHSW0BTH.
If the Bodies of Any of the "Victims are
Found an Inquest Will
be Held.
A Miner representative yesterday
enquired of W. H. Bullook-Webtser,
Chief of Provincial Police in this dis
trict, as to whether an enquiiy would
be made into the circumstances sur
rounding the recent disaster to the
steamer AinswoTth. Mr. Webster
stated that if any of the bodies of the
victims were found, an inquest would
of course be held, bnt that if none
were discovered the Provincial authorities had no jurisdiction to open an
enquiry. Such action lay with the
Minister of Marine and Fisheries, who
alone could move iu the matter.
There is some hope that the bodies
of J. Gum and the cook may be found
inside the vessel, and orders were despatched to the Provincial Constable
ar. Ainsworth to make a careful
search, but tbe result of his investigations has not yet reached town.
E. J. Matthews, manager of the
Ainsworth, left Nelson yesterday for
Kaslo and will leave today on the
steamer Kaslo to visit the wreok. If
the boat can be floated it will probably be taken at once to Pilot Bay
and from there either to Nelson or
Kaslo for repairs. Iu any event the
machinery of the steamer will be
saved.
Cant. Lane, of the Ainsworth, arrived in Nelson yesterday afternoon.
His story of the wreck is substantially
the same as that printed in the Miner
yesterday. Capt. Lane says the
steamer is damaged but little and can
be easily floated.
FOR THE GOOD OF ALL.
Berlin, Deo. 1.���Iu the governmout.
oircles there is an intense feeling
against tho Austrian Premier, Couut
Thun Hohenstein, because of his
recent speech in the Austrian Reich-
strath regarding the expulsion of Aub-
trians from Germany, in tho course
of which ho threatened Germany
with reprisals if the expulsion were
continued. It is understood after the
jubilee festivities, Emperor Francis
Joseph will lie informed from Berlin
that Count Thnu Hohenstein's continuance iu office would Lie detrimental
to.the intimate relations between the
two countries.
SUNKEN AND STRANDED.
Savauah. Ga., Dec. 1.���The Gate
City hao a rough time after she struck
tho blizzard Saturday night. She was
badly lashed by tho waves and bIiowb
the effects of the storm. She was
compelled to anchor SO hours off Vineyard Haven to escape the force of the
Wow. She lost some sails aud several
small boats. Passengers were not injured. Captain Goodins reports
passing eight sunken vessels and 18
stranded craft around Vineyurd Haven.
AND HE SHOULD KNOW.
London, Dec. 1.���Financial News
says that Sir Thomas Lipton, the
challangor of the America's cup, denies the report recently published
that the plates for his yacht Shamrock were to be made in Germany.
FILIPINOS WANT
Desire for Independence is
Unanimous.
WILL   FIGHT   FOR   IT
Deoline to Aocept the Besnlt of the Deliberations of the Peace
Commissioners.
Manila, Dec. 1.���The independent
party of (he Filipinos is not disposed
to accept the result of the deliberations
of the peace commissioners at Parip,
judging from the tone of the native
press.
The Independencia publishes a particularly bombastio leading article to
the effect that the Filipinos will,
"Decline to permit their homes to be
bought and sold like merchandise "
It then repeats the readiness of the
Filipinos to fight in de ence of their
rights and asserts that the government and people are unanimouna in
claim ing nothing less than independence. The paper also claims that the
Filipinos have incontestible claims upon the Island of Luzon, part of the
Visayas Islands aud the Island
of Mindanas by right of conquest. It concedes that the Americans helped the insurgents "indirectly
by blockading Manila." Bnt the
Independencia claims that even with
out help the revolutionists must have
ultimately won.
Finally, tbe Independencia holds
that Spain oannot cede the Philippine
arohipelago, "because it was never
hers."
THE SKATING RUSK.
It Will Be Completed   in   Time for  a
Christmas Opening.
A Miner representative yesterday
wont up to see bow the work was
progressing on the rink which is being
erected ou the corner of Houston and
Stanley streets. Those interested in
the enterprise are F. J. Bradley, T. W.
Houston, A. Jeffs, and C. T. Archibald. Sixteen men and two teams
were busily engaged at work, but Mr.
Bradley, who was in oharge, said that
this morning double the number of
men aud three teams will be put on.
The excavating is nearly completed,
aud, weather permitting, the carpenters will soou be at work. It is intended to rush the building to completion, and the proprietors hope to
have the rink open for skating by
Christmas Day. The dimensions of
the rink have been given, but it may
be stated tbat on either side a sheet of
ice 150 feet by 16 will be set aside for
curling, leaving available for skating
purposes a space 160 feet by (SO feet.
The building will be provided with
comfortable dressing rooms, lighted
by acetylene gas, and the management
has made satisfactory arrangements
for the use of the rink by the Nelson
Hockey Club.

exchange of ratification would take
place tomorrow.
GONE TO CANADA.
Washington, Dec. 1.���Secretary Alger has left the city for a business
trip to Canada and will not' return until next Monday.
SPAIN APPEALS
Asks That the Trade Relations be Not Severed.
| a collateral proceeding of the sort,
brought before him. Judge Ong further said it was necessary to dissoh e
the injunction in order to give Baruei'
! standing in the Erie courts where
I the battle for the possession of the
ohild started. It is claimed by the
Magowans that after the Oklahoma
court granted the Barnes divorce,
Mrs. Barnes Magowan was given the
oustody of the child and that therefore, the subsequent appointment of a
guardian by the Cleveland court was
voided.
THE U. S. CONSIDERING
They Ask Until this Afternoon to Formulate a Beply to Spain's
Paris, Dec. 1.���As anxious as both
are to conclude theii work, the American and Spanish peace commissioners did not hold a joint session today.
Their next meeting will be held at 2
o'clook tomorrow afternoon. This
delay rose from the fact tbat the Span*
ish comimssioners at yesterday's session offered several urgent propositions
which called for special deliberation
ou the part of the Americans. Spain
asks tbe United States to grant for a
term of five years tc Spanish ships
carrying goods or products to Porto
Rico and Cuba,��the same privileges as
American vessels, engaged in tbe same
trade, may have, and she qualifies this
request by a proivso that trade privileges be extended to Cuba so long as
the United States government is
dominant over that island.
In: support of this request, the
Spanish commissioners assert that
Spain, jannot, without vital harm,
immediately abandon or out the business relations so long maintained between the mother country and the
West Indian Territories. They declare that family ties and social relations added to affairs of trade, maintained thorugh centuries, require
gradual dissolution. They invoke the
terms of the treaty of 1819 by whioh
the United States look over Florida
and granted Spain for 12 years tbe
right to send her goods and products
to Florida in Spanish ships on the
same terms as the ships carrying
thither goods and products of the
United States. The Spanish commissioners cite further the fact that
the treaty of 1808 with France for
the cession of Louisiana, granted
French and Spanish goods and products the same terms as Americans in
New Orleans and other ports in the
ceded territory. Finally, Spain points
to the American "Open Door" policy
in the Philippines and asks a guarantee of the same advantages in her late
West Indian colonies until trade relations can by degrees accustom themselves to the change of sovereignty.
This proposition and tho arguments
by which it was supported are considered strongly stated ; aud the American comirassionesr desired time for
deliberation. Thus, though busy until nearly 2 o'clock this afternoon,
they were not fully prepared; and
Judge Day sent a n.essage to Senor
Montero Rios requesting that the joint
session fixed tor this afternoon be
postponed until tomorrow.
LATER REPORTS.
From information which comes
from a well authenticated source late
this avening, it seems unlikely tbat
the commissions will finish their work
as soon as had been expected. It is
probable that the negotiations will
last considerably longer. Madrid
has instructed the Spanish commissioners on three points to which Americans attach much importance. These
are tho cession of an island in the
Carolines, the granting of religious
freedom over the whole of the Carolines and the cession of a cable and
coaling station at Ceruta. The Spanish government has instructed Senor
Montero Rios to grant none of these,
and, while Spain may ultimately
try yield them all, it is admitted
that the American commissioners have
no power to enforce their demands on
points not covered by the protocol.
; Before Spain does yield, the negotiations aro likely to be prolonged and
the United States may have to give a
substantial qui pro quo.
THREE BODIES   FOUND.
Bodies of  Victims  of   the Big Storm
Still Coming Ashore.
Barnstable, Mass., Deo 1.���Great
masses of wreckage have been coming ashore on the inside of Cape Cod
since Sunday. A piece of a vessel
mi rked "Emma Philadelp" with a
tonnage of 1,600, came ashore at Sandy
Neck, near BaruBtable Light, and
last night three bodies were found
near there on the beach.
BARNES WINS A POINT.
An   Important   Move    Made   in  the
Kidnapping   Case.
Cleveland, Dec. 1.���John A.
Barnes today won an important point
in the Barnes Magowan lit igaitoii for
the posession of Edith Barnes recently kidnupped. Judge Ong dissolved
the injunction restraining Barnes
from interfering with Mrs. Barnes
Macgowun in tho possession of the
child. Tbe Judge said he could not
deterimne the validity of the appointment of the guardian   for the ohild in
KILLED HER CHILDREN.
An Insane Woman   Commits   Murder
and Gives Herself Up.
Peabody, Mass., Dec. 1.���Mrs.
Richard Hurley, wife of a local gard-
ner, reported to the police this afternoon that she had murdered two of
her children. An investigation by
the police showed that she had struck
her 12 year old daughter Mary with
a piece of crockery, beating her over
the head until the child was killled.
The seven year old son of Mrs. Hurley was also beaten to death in the
same manner and was found in his
mother's kitchen. Mrs. Hurley has
been in the Danvers insane asylum and
there is little doubt   that she is crazy.
ON SUDA'S SHORES.
Over   the   Mohammedans There Will
Float the Turkish Flag.
Athens, Dec. 1.���The foreign admirals commanding in Cretan waters
have selected the little island of Suda
as the place where the Turkish flag
shall float in fulfillment of the promise
to maintain the emblem of Ottoman
Suzerainty over Crete. The population of the islet, which is seperated
from Crete by a tolerably wide channel, is entirely Mohammedan. This
selection is the best possible and will
minimize tbe irritation of Christines
that will be caused by the hoisting of
tbe Crescent.
ENTIRE CREW DROWNED.
Leander Beebe   Totally   Wrecked  Off
Black Rock, Mass.
Philadelphia, Deo. 1. ��� Information
was received here today that the
schooner Leander Beebe, from Phila-
delpha for Boston, has been totally
wrecked off Black Rook, Mass., and
that all the members of the orew were
drowned.
ODRLERS OF KOOTENAY
ASSOCIATION F0BMED LAST WINT
EB IS ACTIVE AGAIN
Nelson Curlers Will  Meet  Next Monday
Evening and Organize
a Club.
Last February a meeting of the curlers of the Kootenays was held in Rossland and an association called "The
Kootenay Curling Association," to
which are to be affiliated all the curling clubs ot Kootenay, was formed.
The following are the officers of the
association: J. B. McArthur, Kossland, President; G. O. Buchanan,
Kaslo, M. L. Grimmett, Sandon, and
F. W. Peters, Nelson, Vice-presidents;
A. W. Strickland, Rossland, Secretary
Treasurer; Executive Committee, Jas.
Waiigh, Kaslo; J. G. "Main, Sandon;
W. H. Grant. Nelson ; J. S. O. Fraser,
Rossland; C. A. Warren, Golden,
and D. O. Rae, Golden.
The constitution of the association
has been drawn up by J. B. McArthur and F. W. Peters, the committoe
on the constitution, and has been forwarded to the various curling clubs
of Kootenay, whose affiliation papers
are expected shortly. The entrance
fee for each club is fixed at $5, together with an annaul subscription
of $2, and an additional sum of lu
cents in respect of each regular member of the club. Several gentlemen
interested in ourling have already
offered trophies, including the Hon.
C. H. Mackintosh, J. B. McArthur
and Hiram Walker, and as soou as the
affiliation papers of the other clubs
come in, a meeting will be held to decide where the annual bonspiel will be
held.
A meeting of Nelson curlers will bo
held next Monday evening to organize
a club. As clubs affiliate with the
association by Decembor !il in order to
take part in the bonspiel, it will be
seen that there is not much time to
lose. There are any numbers of curlers in Nelson, and many others who
may wish to becomo curlers and ono of
tho best clubs in the Kootenay district
should bo formed. In tho evont of a
bonspiel being arranged, with its new
rink Nelson should stand a good
chance of securing the meeting and
efforts to that end should be made at
an early date.

GERMANY WANTS
Is Negotiating With Spain
For Their Purchase.
TEN  MILLION   FRANCS
This is the Price That Spain Expects and
Germany Thinks Excessive,
Berlin, Dec. 1.���A German government official, in an interview with the
correspondent here of the Associated
Press, confirms the report that Germany is negotiating with Spain for
tbe purchase of the Caroline Islands.
It is understood that Spain expects
to get ten million francs for them
which Germany  considers  excessive.
Germany also makes the proviso that
the negotiations shall be contingent
npon no international complications
arising, especially with the United
States. Prince Von Aronberg. president of the colonial society, assures
the correspondent of tbe Associated
Press that: " The acquisition of the
Caroline islands is important less from
the standpoint of commerce, which is
insignificant there, than from a naval
view."

Noble Work.
Buzzards Bay, Dec. 1.���A member

London, Deo. 1.���A despatch to the
Central News from Paris say that a
visitor who called to see OoL Picquart
in the Cherche Midi prison yesterday
was told tbat the colonel was too much
fatigued to see any one. Thero j are
sinister rumors as to the truth of this
report as it is regarded as unlikely that
Picquart would refuse to see friends.
It is alleged that the military authorities are doing their best to keep Picquart from view.
It is announced tbat M. Babre, in
the Senate, and M. Ribot, in tbe
Chamber of Deputies, will shortly interpellate the government as to the
unsatisfactory oondition of Picquart

Intend to enter upon a policy of Provincial subsidies in aid of enterprises

LOOK  ABROAD.
Nelson takes advantage of tbe occasion to congratulate Rossland on
tbe settlement of. the Le Hoi affair.
That property is now in tbe bands of
tbe British America Corporation,
which means that all the capital represented by it is British and tbat its
development and operation are under
British and Canadian control. Not that
The Miner would discourage the investment of American or other foreign
capital in the Kootenays. Far from it.
But under the ciroumstances of the Le
Roi case, as they existed for several
months past, it is saitsfactory to
know tbat a settlement has been
reached which gives undivided own
���rship to a powerful British corpora
tion that has made mining develop
ment in this country its one special
object.
We repeat that Nelson extends its
congratulations. There is no cause
for jealousy, much less strife, between
it and Rossland, for we are all engaged in tbe one work, that of developing tbe splendid rescouroes of South
era British Columbia. And there is
comfort in knowing that this is more
and more being done by our own peo
pie. With the Le Roi difficulties
composed as they have been, it oan
be said that all the mining properties
which have made Rossland famous are
now either British or Canadian.
Tbe occasion referred to will perhaps serve as excuse for some remarks
addressed particularly to the manager
of the British America Corporation,
to whose skill and perserveranoe tbe
settlement is due. He has done well
for Rossland and the corporation be
represents. We venture to suggest to
him, however, that the Rossland dis
trict does not embrace all the mining
properties in British Columbia that
are worth looking at, and tbat the
operations of a company so ambitious as
his should not be confined to one little
corner of a Province fabulously rioh
in prospects. Rossland was so fortunate as to catch the popular fancy,
and has thrived marvellously on tbe
favor extended to it. In Eastern Canada and Great Britain it represented
tho entire mining wealth of British
Columbia, and, in the race to realise,
prospectors and investors tramped in
haste over other regions equally as
rich. It is time this misconception
was corrected. We say not a word in
disparagment of any region, bat here
within a few hours' reaoh of Nelson
are properties as rich as any now
owned by the British America Oorpor-
taion. Here are properties worthy
its best attention. It has oapital to
spare, aud if it will seek for them
it will find opportunities for the profitable investment of tens and hundreds
of thousands.
FORESHADOWING  A POLIOY.
To estimate  exactly the significance
to be attached to a leader  in a recent
issue of   the   Vancouver News-Adver
tiser, one would   require   to know  to
what extent it represents tbe views  of
so  influential a Minister as the Hon.
Mr. Cotton, who is understood to dictate its policy.    The article deals with
tbe "Development  of the  Provinoe,"
in so far as it may be promoted or  assisted by the Government  and   Legislature.   It goes off   to  India,   Africa,
China, and the West Indies,   to   show
tbat British statesmen are not opposed
to  State   railways   if   the  conditions
render them  nectsary.   Or they  may
be State aided, or left  entirely to private  enterprise.    It is   assumed  tbat
British Columbia is face to face  with
��� new era, and tbat  the   men now in
power will hare to grapple   with  the
sitnation.    Whether they should  build
railways as Provincial works, or aid
private   enterprise  to build  them,   or
leave   them   severely   alone,   are  the
three  important   questions   raised in
the article    Other  public enterprises,
however, are included in the consideration.
The article favors the middle course,
An itinerant correspondent of the
Toronto Globe says that "Rossland is
the social, money, and trading centre
of the Kootenay.'' The Toronto paper
should wire its correspondent to get
around and see the country before dogmatising on things he is never likely
wholly to understand.

The Prospector, Fort Steele, is predicting tbat the coming one will be
a prosperous year for that district,
"New and rich strikes," it says,
"have been reported, and in every direction development work is being
vigorously prosecuted. The attention
of capital is being gradually but
surely attracted ; confidence and hope
are being instilled into the minds of
all classes." The Miner hopes that
tbe most sanguine expectations of the
district will be realised.
Exaggerat on rare y serves ts purpose ; in mining it almost invariably
does harm in the long run. Some
time ago it was locally stated tbat a
quantity of ore pioked with a penknife from the Le Roi mine gave an
average assay of $1,400 to the ton.
The statement may have been literally true, although tbe general impression created by it is undoubtedly misleading. A satirical reference to it
by a London paper is quoted by tbe
Toronto Monetary Times, which ad
vises something cooler and more oir
oumstantial. It may help to relieve
the distress of The Times, however,
to know that pen-knife mining on .he
be Roi is by no means the mle.
EDITORIAL COMMENT.
The Constantinople Servet pays the
following tribute to Emperor Wil
liam of Germany:
The young Emperor who honors
the Ottoman capital by his second
visit is one of the most characteristic
features of this century. History shows
no stronger individuality than we find
in him, and it is this which makes
him remarkable at a porind when the
general tendency is toward a dead
level of uniformity.
It is difficult to classify him. With
all the up-to date-ness of a modern engineer he unites the enthusiasm aud
fuitn of the middle ages, aud the
steady perseverance of the oaptuiuR
of ancient Rome. He is an epitome of
every age, u combination of every
talent. Not only is he interested in
every science and every art���he is a
pronounced "specialist,"
He is a soldier in every sense of the
word, passionately devoted to his profession. How inspiring is his eloquence when he appeals to the loyalty
of his comrades in arms, aud with no
less ability does be play the diplomatist in acquiring sympathy and appeasing wounded susceptibilities. It
is a remarkable fact that iu France,
where a journalist once styled him a
"distinguished enemy," there is no
foreign sovereign more popular than
be. (I) When he answers a Frenchman, even a member of the academy,
it is with a purity of diction that astonishes the hearer, while an Englishman oan perceive no trace of difference
between his accent and that of his fellow countrymen.
As to the arts, he is both painter
and author. He can design ships, compose orchestral scores, and work out
militarv plans. And when he seeks
rest after extraordinary exertion he
refreshes his poetic soul by contemplating the wild scenery of Norway
and the North cape; or the sunny
shores of southern seas.
The German army owes much to
him ; its navy is indebted to him for
its existence. He has takou only ten
years to make it one of the bast in Europe. As a horseman ho out distances
all his escorts and his yachts win
prizes in tbe most famous English regattas. His friendship is as strong
as his iron constitution; he is not
afraid to assert it boldly, no matter
whom it displeases, and his acts aro
based on it. If he wears the uniform
of an English admiral, a colonel of
ouirassers or an artillery officer, it is
as a thorough sailor, trooper or gunner.

When a man dies and provides in his
will that his wife shull not marry
again a certain question is bound to
introduce itself. Is it because she is
so good that he hates to divide her
with any other man, or because on his

Erotective  philanthropy   for those  of
is sex who must stay behind?

Ex-
A recent despatch from London says:
Notwithstanding recurrent rumors, no
tidings have yet been  received of Andree and   his   companions,   but  Herr
Julius Von Payer, of  Vienna, has expressed   himself   iu   terms   very   far
from sanguine an to   the   prospects  of
their safety. This was not the opinion
of an arm-chair   critic   but of an   experienced explorer, for  he was   one of
the leaders of the party who   discovered   Franz Josef   Land.     Their   ship,
the Tegethoft, was  hopelessly beset in
the ice, and had to be abandoned, and
it win only after great perils  that the
adventurers   found  their  way   home.
Herr  von Payer's   theory is that Andree after   leaving   Spitzbergen,   may
have fallen   into  a strong  air current
which carried the   balloon   for several
d lys toward   tbe   northeast and  then
drove it in a   southeasterly  direction,
That, he   believes, would   bring them
to the east coast of Franz Josef Land.
From that place the little party would
have to make its way   over  dangerous
ice not always continuous,   and   with
open sea in places, to   the coast of Siberia.    But even   when   they   arrived
there���if indeed,   they   have  been  so
fortunate���their   work   would not  be
nearly   over.    It   is still  a long and a
difficult journey to reach the more in
habited parts; so ^that Herr von Payer
thinks there  is not the least chance of
the  adventurers,   supposing   them   to
be alive, being   heard   of before next
autumn.   Obviously, the  route which
he suggests as possible  involves many
grave contingencies.
The evidence, however, in favor of
the supposed path off the balloon is of
the slightest character. It may not
have taken that return course toward
the southeast, and, in any case, the
Franz Josef group ot islands is not so
large that an unmanageable apparatus
lilr.3 a balloon might not easily miss
them all. If it did, and particularly
if it were involved in those variable
drifts of which Nan sen had experi-
���nee, it might Moat, about until from
exhaustion of its gas it settled down
upon the sea. In this case the explorers' chunce of reaching laud,
though they had endeavored to provide for this contingency, would not be
worth very much. Even if they iiave
alighted on firm ground, and have
saved their weapons and a fair supply
of ammunition���mm without these
they w01.1,1 hu.e L.Ju hope of imitating Nansen ami surviving a winter in
Franz Josef Land���there would still
remain the journey to Siberia. Possibly, however, they would try for
Spitzbergen, as Nansen would have
done if he had not fallen in with the
Juokson-Harmsworth party. Bat a
sooond winter, with the imperfect appliances of Audrey's expedition, would
be a most formidable trial unless they
could manage to reach the home from
which they started in July, 1897, or
some other well-provisioned shelter
elsewhere. That they should succeed
in this, or fall in with some tribe of
Siberian natives before the present
winter has fully set in, seems the one
remaining hope. At present, no doubt,
it would still be premature to declare
them lost, but until some one bus succeeded in constructing a balloon which
can be steered like a ship, tbe plan
adopted by Andree is about the most
desperate method of undertaking polar
exploration yet devised,
EAST KOOTENAY NOTES.
On Wednesday tbo lust payment of
$1(100 was made on the Matter horn
group in East Kootenay. The Mattel-
horn group is situated near Windermere between Toby and Horse Thief
creeks. Tho total price paid for (hi
claims is $8,500, and the deal was no
gotiated by F. M. Ohadboum artn g
on behult of Loudon parties. The
vendors are the Gullop Brus., of Kaslo.
Development work will be vigorously
prosecuted in the spring as soon as the
snow goes off.
Fritz Oirkel, M. E., has returned
from a trip to the St. Mary's country
where he has been exuminiug the
Humbold group on Hunker Creek
about 20 miles from Pilot Bay, ou behalf of the Vancouver capitalists who
own ths group. Mr. Oirkel decided
to suspend operations for the winter,
as tbe deep snow and the luck of transportation facilities make it almost
impossible to get in supplies. Work
on the property will be resumed in
tbe spring.
The Pyramid Copper Syndicate,
which owns 26 claims on Pyramid
crook, one of the tributaries of the St.
Mary river, will keep a small force of
men at work all the winter. The
surface indications are very encouraging, the outcropping ledges carrying a
high percentage of copper.

THE BOXING MATOH.
There was a boxing match last evening in the Auditorium of the Hume
Hotel between Jerry Haley and Fred
Ross, who stlyes himself the champion of the North West. After a preliminary three-round contest between
two boys, the principals got to work
about 9:20 p. m., and boxed 10 two-
minute rounds. Neither of the men
stripped in good condition, and
though occasionally the exchanges
were fast and furious, but little science was displayed, the boxing being
rather of the wind mill order.
Neither of them seemed eTer to have
heard of body blows. Haley was
knooked down twice, but the condition of the floor had perhaps something to do with it. The fight on
the whole was very even, and was declared a draw.
After the fight it was announced that
Fred Ross would defend his title as
Champion of the North West at 188
pounds against all comers.
SUB-OONTRAOT LET.
Foley Bros., Larsen & Halverson,
