places it was fully one-third
done, All the caniJJS were well
supplied for work this winter and
if the contractors are able to
keep plenty of men a great deal
should be accomplished before

NEW. NAVIGATION, fOHBAl-%
A prospectus of, the Skeena
River'Navigation Company has
been issued in whkjh it is set
forth that this company \s proposed to be formed for the purpose of building and operating
a boat for river service, commencing next spring. ^Mer setting forth the fact .that such a
boat as they propose to build will
be badly needed o.n the river next
year, and that the present boats,
which are "operated during the
season of navigation, by the Hudson's Bay Company, wi\\ be unable to handle the traffic, offering,
the proposed boat is described:���
' 'We intend to,' build a river boat,
135 feet in length, 27 foot beam,
and equipped witn machinery
strong enough to give us 450
horse power. This boat, when
complete and ready to run will
cost about $25,000. The machinery installed wjll cpgt about
$15,000. We are constructing | freight boat, not a
passenger boat, and what is wanted is a boat capable of carrying
80 or'iOO tons of freight, and
when loaded not to draw over 24
inches pf water. Instead of building staterooms and loadipg our
boat down with wood work we
propose no staterooms at all,
simply a galley and kjtchen far
the crew, and ey-ery man who
travels shall carry his own blankets and. provide, his own provisions. This will dp, away' with
the weight of a house and expense of help. Our object is tc
secure a boat with as Jgiht a draft
as possible, and strong enough tc
be able, to run the river at any
time except at the very high
stages of water."
More than enough money has
already been subscribed to cover
the dost of the boat. Among
thoge taking stock are C, Barrett
&Co., J. R. McDonnell of Port
Essington, Mr. Sloan of Port Essington, The Ellis-Thompspn Mill
and Timber Co, of Bulkley Valley.
The Ingineca Mining Co.. The
Finlay River Land and Development Co., The Ellis Timber Co.,
also the Indians who own and
operate the three stores and the
saw mill at Kispiox and others.
Local people who are interested
consider the deal will go through
all right and with the opening of
navigation next spring the new
boat will be ready to come up the
river.
From what is now known of
projected operations for nexl
summer the new boat will be a
much needed addition to the
river fleet. The saw mill machinery for the Bulkley Valley is
on the docks at Vancouver on ace-aunt of the inability of the Hudson's Bay Company's steamers to
handle it the last season, and, in
addition' it Is claimed! t^ere is to
be a machinery plant! pot-on the
coal properties along the Skeena'
a short'distance above the mouth
of the Kispiox river. There will
be a vory much larger amount of
farming''m-a^hine'rytyo be "��rans,T
ported next summer owj,n,g to the
number of "settlers in tne' surrounding . agricultural districts.
If railroad work, as'is expected1,
starts along the upper river next
spring, there, will be work for aU
boats'huiftVor planned. ' ��� ',;"
FROM THE INGINECA.
Tony Menard, arrived from Ingineca Thurs'-cjay byening: ^Vhen
as^ed regarding recent developments in that country he stated
that lie stopped sluicing at"the
end of August and th&\ the others
had done the same,' that since
tha| time his work had been djqne
to get ready for next 'year. 'His
claims on Ingineca were staked
the middle ��f June last and, owing to the short time allowed before the season closed, was only
able to get enough water tp allow, of sluicing about two hours a
day. With what water he had,
however, th,^ ground was Rrpyed
to be worth from two and a half
to three ounces per day tp the
man. Preparations for next $wrn."
mer include water enough to run
two pr three lines of sluice boxes
and, a sufficient force men tp keep
them in operation. Other ground
along the Ingineca has been proved to, b^ as goed, notably the
claims of Stark and 'Starifer.
The gold from the Ingineqa is
the same class of gold as is obtained, frpjn McConnell creek,
and, from the fact that no gold is
found on the Ingineca aboye the
mouth qf McConnell creek, everyone in that country is led to think
that it ajl came down McCpnnell,
and that when bedrock is found
on that creek som^ing mighty
good will be found.
W^efl on his way out he stopped at Babine and from the Hudson's Bay store there bought
2200 wej^t of prpvisiop,��, which
the compapy will forward to the
Ingineca by means of dog teams
and toboggans,.
Tpny came out over the winter
trail, whieh is estimated to be
only 186 miles, about 65 miles
shorter than the summer trail.
After resting, a few days in Hazelton he will go down the rjver to
the coast on a short business
trip and will be back here about
the middle pf January to return
to Ingineca, as he wishes to sink
the shaft on his McConnell creek
claims, which is ftow down 20
feet, on down to bedrock before
spring comes; when the water
would put a stop to sinking unless
pumps were installed.
A good many thousands of dollars will come out of the Ingineca
next summer from ground already proven, regardless of McConnell creek, and that is expected to prove a bonanza.
Late in the fall good prospects
were found on some other creeks
emptying into Ingineca river but
nothing was done towards proving their worth.
J. H. Harrison and G. B. Lawrence had been at work on their
clainis as long as weather permitted and they and a number of
others will winter there.

THROUGH THE PINE PASS.
It wopld appear that the Grand

They are well pleased with the

The Tragic End of the Bloodthirsty
English Pirate.
All the world has heard of
"Blackbeard," the English sailor
who, after having been a highly
respected officer in his majesty's
navy, turned pirate and raised
the black flag against everything
afloat.
This notorious sea robber,
���.viiose real name was Teach, I
be-ieve, took his pseudonym from
Ihe fact that he wore a very heavy
black beard, wnich he was in the
habit of doing up in two large
braids and tying them behind his
cars. He was a man of gigantic
proportions and of surpassing
strength.    His heart was as cruel
Virginia to relieve them of the
terrible pirate, who was making
their lives a living hell.
Spotswood did not listen to tne
appeal in vain. Looking about
for some one to put a quietus
upon Blackbeard he found the
person he wanted in one Robert
Maynard, a young officer on His
Majesty's ship Pearl, which happened to be lying at the time in
Chesapeake bay.
Manning a couple of small craft
with some sixty resolute men,
Maynard set out early in November, 1718, in search of Blackbeard, and on the 21st of the
same month found him at Ocra-
coke inlet, North Carolina. Blackbeard did not know what fear
was, young Maynard was as full
of fight as a hungry wildcat, and
the ball opened at once. The
dancing was to tho tune of "No
Quarter !" For over three hours
Maynard and his sixty men fought
Blackbeard's followers.
With the sea robber's head
swinging by its long black hair
from the bowsprit of his little
craft Maynard sailed back to Virginia to receive the congratulations of the governor and the loving thanks of all dwellers along
the Atlantic seaboard.���Rev. T.

it finally became too hot for him
there, and he struck out for the
coasts of North America. How j Carolina sound the pirate's ship

In the shallow waters of the
from Nova Scotia to Florida he
succeeded in making his name a
mortal terror.    ���
In a captured ship of forty
guns he entered Charleston harbor and held the town up for a
large ransom. From Charleston
he passed into tne waters of
North Carolina, plundering and
slaying right and left, and in
their distress the "Tar Heels,"
being able to get no aid from
their own governor, Eden, appealed to Governor Spotswood of
final death grapple, but as the
two vessels came together Blackbeard anticipated his intended
movement and jumped aboard of
him with sixteen of his followers.
Maynard had but thirteen men
left by this time, but with these
he tackled the sixteen pirates and
their desperate leader.
Crossing swords with Blackbeard, Maynard succeeded in
dealing him a death thrust in the
throat, and in the meantime his
men had killed or wounded all of
The death of James W. Paul,
the Philadelphia banker, recalls
this story which   he  told at a
Philadelphia club long ago:    "I
was going home one night late
and saw a man who had evidently looked too deep into the cup
making frantic but unsuccessful
efforts to open a door with a latch
key.    After looking at him a few
minutes I decided to  help the
man, who was not so far gone as
to have forgotten his politness,
for before  entering  the house
through the door which  I had
succeeded in opening he asked my
name and thanked me.    I proceeded on my way, but had gone
only a few steps when I heard
some one call,  'Mr. Paul!   Mr.
Paul!'   I turned, and there was
my friend of the latch key coming toward me   with  unsteady
gait.    When he reached me he
put one hand affectionately upon
my shoulder, and. looking me in
the  face, said:   'Say,  did  you
ever get an answer to that long-
letter you wrote to the Thessa-
lonians?'"

WILL BE A LONG WAR.
War, devastating and terrible,
lasting perhaps a century between the United States and
Japan, is declared to be inevitable
by General ViscoUfft Torio, the
Japanese elder statesman and one
of the closest friends of the Mikado, in an interview by Rioband
Barry, the war correspondent,
and published ih Hampton's
Broadway Magazine.
"Come and see me When you
return from the first stage of the
war," General Torio said to his
interviewer. "Your hair will be
as grey Ss mine," he1 said.
"Will it be thirty years?" Barry
asked.
"Perhaps a hundred," was the
answer of the Japanese warrior.
"You have a great nation, but
we have a great nation too."
"But is it possible for nations
to fight continuously for so long
a time ?"
"In the life of Japan a century
is but a day," said the viscount.
' 'We have existed since the growing of the first arie'mone>, and we
will continue to exist after the
reaping of the last sunflower.
' 'We have existed so long for
one thing; to preserve oUr national unity. As a nation we are only
one member of a family. That
family covers the whole continent of Asia and the islands that
lie tfcereby. It has many members, from th�� old grandfather,
China, to the 'little boy' in the

A recent dispatch from Calcutta says the city is terrorized by
an outbreak of political crimes.
The attempt made three days
ago on the life of Sir Andrew H.
L, Fraser, the Lieutenant-Governor of Bengal, was followed by a
murder shortly after. A Bengali
detective, who had been active in
trailing the revolutionists, was
shot down on a crowded street bv
three men who riddled his body
with bullets.
The people fear to give information about the criminals lest
vengeance be visited upon them
The police are powerless.   One of
the natives who was found guilty
of murdering a man named Gossans last summer, was hanged a
few days ago.   Gossans was a
man who turned state's evidence
against a number of conspirators
and was killed in jail by two fel
low prisoners.   All the police reserves in the city haVe been ord
ered on duty to prevent sympathetic demonstrations.
In the course of a trial at Mid
napur, Bengal, in Connection with
a discovery of arms and expios
ives, a police informer testified
that one of the accused had in
formed him that many e'ases of
rifles  arid  revolvers had  been
shipped from America to Bombay under the guise of sewiner
machines and cotton goods.

Coroner and Doctor Tell of Finding
Supposed Remains of Alleged Wardress.
Laporte, Ind. ���It has been announced that session of the trial
of Ray Lamphere, charged with
the murder of the Gunness family, will be held Saturday as usual and it is predicted that the
case will continue for two weeks.
Dr. C. S. Mack, coroner of Laporte county, was the first witness. He testified that he took
charge of the suppqsed bodies of
Mrs. Gunness and her three children after the fire had destroyed
her house on the famous murder
farm.
Dr. Mack said that he arrived
on the scene the afternoon of the
fire and said that the four bodies
were found lying under the debris on the cellar floor. He said
they Were badly burned and that
there was a hole in the forehead
of one of the children. He described the mutilated condition of
the remains and identified bones
removed from the bodies.
Lamphere is suffering greatly
under the strain of the trial by
which he is visibly affected; He
was very nervous when the ease
called, and he listened to the
testimony of Dr. Mack with an
intesity of expression that indicated suppressed excitement.

SUBMARINE NAVIGATION.
The idea of the submarine is
certainly as* much as 200 years
old, but most of the earlier plans
were flat failures. In 1774 ah inventor named Day lost his life
during An experimental descent
in Plymouth -sotind. Bushnell of
Connecticut in 1775 contrived a
submarine vessel propelled by
some kind of screw, Robert Fulton also in 179-q invented a box
which when filled w/th combustibles might be propelled under
water and made' to explode under
the bottom of a' ship. It is hard
to1 day who.was the originator of
the. idea of the sU'briiarine boat
unless it was Day.
