mounted to $3,100. Development work
is steadily going on and at the present
workings the ledge has widened considerable. It is the intention to run No.
2 tunnel in about 100 feet farther and
there will be then ample room for blocking out the ore and sloping, The Lorne
ledge* holds its values as they sink and
as i In re is thousands of ons iu sight the

repairs are made. Tne mine is look ng
well with a good body of ore. In the
stope rock can be taken out rich in fine

moriow evening and from now on will
arrive from Lytton on Tue.days and
Saturdays leaving again the next morning. The mail will also still continue to
come by way ot Ashcroft on Mondays
and Fridays, which will give Lillooet
four mail a week. The contract for the
new set vice was awarded several months
ago and orders were given last week for
it to go into effect. It is also the intention of the post office department to
give Bridge river district increased services which will probably go into effect
shortly. We are pleased to see that the
department recognizes the necessity of
such a change in the Bridge river services as the importance of this tection
demands the mail mote than onie a

well. We will keep up to the last of the
month, although it will be no easy task.
Washington, July 28.—The secretary
<f state has received a despatch from

Ohe Foo, dates at midnight on the 26ch:
"This morning by request of the allied

d to be the governor of Shan Tung)

from the emperor saying that the mini -
ers are wel'. They are sending provisions to the legations. Am conifident
the ministers are out of distress, and
request you (Fowler) to transmit this
preliminary announcement to the admirals.    Yuan, governor.'"
A later despatch from Mr. FowW,
dated 1 p. in. July 27, to the state de-
nartinent, is as follows: 'Another
telegram from the governor: Have
jtist received an imperial edict of the
24th saying the various ministers, except the German,- are well, and »ome
days ago legations have been supplied
with provisions. Am satisfied the ministers are out of distiess. Yuan, governor."

Penet has offered to surre nder on condition that his followers be permitted

"Lord Roberts has refused anything

cribed Li. entrance into Kumassi on

and desolation, burned houses ad

charist, cynically avowed the crime.
Admiral Dewey Tells a Secret.
"My dear old friend, Sir Edward Seymour, is more than a brother to me. I
will remember his friendship to the
end. In Manila Bay, when I was in a
most trying position, this English commander stood loyally at my back. I-
it had not been for his moral support I
cannot say what might have happened."
—Extract from Admiral Devey's speech
at Chicago, May 1, 1900.
Fishermen at Work.
The fish have begun to run freely in
the Fraser says a coast despatch. The
top-liner boats took in 150, the average
being between 50 and 100. All the
Japanese are'out, and several former
white strikers hxve given in. The
fisherman are all doing well and the
canneries a-e running full blast, all the
fish being divided pro rata.
To Destroy Cut Worms.
A wire has been received by the department of agriculture from Dr.
Fletcher, Dominion entomologist, Ottawa, endorsing the recommendations
of the deputy minister of agriculture
for the destruction of cut worms, viz.,
the use of poisoned bran. Good results
have been obtained from using it dry,
but it is usually moistened with sweetened water. Spraying with paris green
and placing poisoned herbage as directed
on infested greahs are also recommended.
Reports having reach the department
of agricultural from several quarters of
the failure of paris green to kill cut
worms Mr. Anderson says that if the
article is pure and it is properly applied,
it will kill the catipillars. A great deal,
however, of the so-called paris green
which is sold, is not pure. This particular applies to painters, paris green,
which is well-known to be adulterated.
Purchasers should go to first-class
chemists and ask for the pure article.
Advice will cheerfully be given on
application to the department as to
purchasing.
The New License Law.
The L'quor License Act now before the
legislative applies only to those portions
of the province not within the limits of
any municipality. For each of the districts to be created under it a board is
provided for, to consist of two persons, to
bold office by appointment from year to
year, and to receive $5 a day and actual
travelling expenses when obliged to go
from home to attend meetings.
The superintendent is authorized to
grant licenses to persons who held them
on the 14th of April last, at which date
all licenses became of no effect in conie-
quense of the disallowance of the act.
The fees stipulated are of a wholesale
"license $200 a year; for a hotel, in a
locality of upwards of 200 inhabitants.
$200; upwards of 100, $100, and less than
100, $60. "Inhabitants" means residence within three miles of
thrf licensed premises, not including Chinese, Japanese or Indians.
Railway companies are required to obtain licenses for the sale of liquor on
dining cars, paying at the rate of $50
per annum. Steamer licenses may be
issued at $100 per annum. Special
licenses for any booth or fair may be
issued for $20, good for forty-eight hours.
Commercial travellers eolhiing for
houses carrying on business outside tbe
P'ovince, and not holdirg who'esale
licenses, must take a license at $200 for
one year.

Neither Christian nor British.
This is how the Sandon Paystreak
discusses or rather aesailH the certainly
far-fetched adverse criticism of one
Senator Vidal on Mongol immigration
restriction: "Hon. Alex. Vidal, a
satellite from Sarnia, who holds down
a seat in the Senate Chamber, went on
record the oiher day as being op| creed
to restricting Chines imrhigratioi,
because 'it was neither Christian nor
British.' Ii Senator Vidal and other
venerable idiots in the Ottawa Senate
were half as Christian or British as they
would have the world believe, the)
would probably say that the principal
objection to Chinese is that they are not
and never will be 'Christian or Briti-h.'
Senator Vidal is a fresiliz-d fool, and he
should lie shot over the dump ol oblivion
into the high-pressure bell that is prepared for religious linii s who choke on
a Canadian mosquito and Bwallow a
leprosy*laden Cbiuese caravan."
The style of the above may be open
to criticism, being eettainjy unclateical,
but an average British Columbian cannot but sympathize with tbe writer's
intent under existing circumstances,
when the ordinary Western* r's very
living is threatened by organized imports of sweated Oriental labor.—News-
Advertiser.
Oom Paul is said to have shaved off
his whiskers. He is evidently prepai-

Tbe session of tbe Dominion  Parlia
ment which came to a close  last Thursday, came within two days of being   the
longest on tecord.    It opened on February 1, and concluded on July 19.
It will be a good thing for this Province when it is properly represented
again in Lonu in, It. is an open secret
that the Hon. J. H. Turner will be the
next agent, and surely no one more
qualified could be found. He knows
the Province thoroughly and its needs.
He is a man of fine ireaence, and is a
man with a good record l.ebind him.
He also thoroughly urderstaiids British
business ways, which is essei.tial. This
appointment will give general satisfaction, but it will not be so easy to till his
place as Minister of Finance.—Kamloops
Standard.
Our Chinese Trade.
A feature to be borne in mind in connection with the Chinese question is
this, that of the total annual trade of
China, £69,000,000, the share oi the
British Empire is 65.5 per cent. It is
British trade first, and the rest nowhere.
Japan's share is only 11 per cent., while
the United States emits tbitd with
under 10 per cent., and Hussi.i a modest
.fourth with less than 5 per cent. As for
the other cuuutiie.s who have prominently taken hands in the Chinese game,
France and Germany plus their trading
interest in China, plus that of all other
nationalities, amounts to only 10 per
cent. 	
Looking Well Ahead.

that the continental powers do not love

do England. If .v smceed in breaking up tbe Bri' empire tbey would

Some live years beiOie the War,
Why Many nines Fall,
Colorado   has   scored   a   great  many
successes in mining in flits la«t l'J yea™,
but truth compels the adininsioii that in
the lam 20 years the  laiiures involving
the loss of millions   of dollars  far outnumbered the successes    In connection
with these facts there is one  point that
would he of great advantage if carefully
considered by eastern investors.     Look
at the big pay mines  in Colorado today,
who opened  them, who   owns them   or
controls   them?   .Four-great   mines   ol
Colorado,   the    Little    Johanny,     the
iShampbird, the. Portland and the   Independence were all opened and placed on
the bonanz i list of poor Colorado miners
who had no monev except what they g>n
out of   the ground,  but they   did   have
experience   and   knew   what to do   an
how to do it.     The average eastern   investor in mining thinks U<at a man wbo
has made a failure in every o her calling
ia life ought to be a mine manager.     S..
you can  travel  through the   mountain*
and see  monuments of fully   ai.difyou
traven on  foot-you will have   plenty   ol
time to count up the ruins you see and
examine into   the merit of the properties.    You will generally   Hi tl that   the
property  is all right and that there has
been from   three to ten or perhaps   100
limes enough monev   fooled away on   it
to have made a good paving proposition.
The failure has often stopped the entire
development of what   would   otherwise
have been a nourishing   mining   camp.
You will generally nnd that tie manager
waB a   nice old man who had   failed   at
every thing   he-had aver touched,   that
he wa> a friend of the owners and   that
lie.had a pull.   Of course he  did   not
know a steam engine from a   bydtaulic
ram.    He   may have   built a   100 horse
power mill which he tried t_ run with a
20 her.e   power engine and drne   dribs
at an   expense   of .$100   afoot   that   he
could have contracted, at. $8 a foot. Yeais
ago a rich New Yorker put $800,010 into
a mine enterprise to make a position foi
a dissipated son whom he sent out   west
to reform.     The   tiret thing the   young
man   did   was   io buy a   barrel   of   old
Kentucky   whisky, the ntxt day was  to
build   a reduction  works   in the   camp
where the ores average 60   per cent lead
and 20   ounces of silver.     The   smoke
stack is all   that is left of the   $800,000
Fortunately the boy  died y.iing.      In a
word, if you want to build a frame hou e
you employ a carpentar; if it is a   brick
house you get a  mason ;   if you  have a
$10 lawsuit you  get an attorney ; if   you
are sick you   send   for a   doctor.     But
many   investors   think    that   anything
that wears pants is good enough to  run
a mine or hold ollice.

As a r.-sult of
the ie.ent idnrlict wili America the
powers of Spain are concentrated for tl e

recognize the nation.y The consul believes hi-com try is on the way to be-
ooie'oiie of the-for foremost powtrs
ii E irope." The Spanish people, he
-ays, teal zes that "ihe war witli tl.e
U ited States was a war of government*-,
and no animosity exists between the inhabitants of tlie two countries."
This is decidedly a cheerful view to
ake of the Htuation, ai.d one that is not
iinreiiBouable. \\ bile Spain has bied its
lO'onies'almost while, it was compelled
to cp n I enormous tunic in maintaining
its supremacy. It was lobbed by disponent i tibials; and its soldiery was le-
cimattd by the gueiiila warfare of the
'patriot lebelH." The flow of treason
and blood having bet n stopped, old
Spain has a chance to iccuperate, and it
it does not meet tbe sanguine expectations of its lepresen alive in Chicago in
becoming one of the foremost powers ol
Europe, it will doubtless regain a great
ileal of the prestige it once enjoyed as
one of the old world nations.

Th«n He Felt Better.
In a certain skirmish  a   Colonel	
general he came to call himself) got a
slight scratch on the leg. The wound
was a uiatter of great glory to him, and
ne nursed it through after days, growing
lamer with ever year, that tbe memory
of his bravery might ever be near him.
One day late in his life as he sat
nursing his leg and pondeiing the glorious past a joung man, visiting the
family for the first time, approached
anil sympathetically remarked:
"Lame, general?"
"Yes, sir," after a pause and with
inexpressible solemnity, "1 am lame."'
"Been riding, sir?"
"No!" with rebuked sternness. "1
have not been riding."
"Ah, slipped on the ice, general?"
"No, sir!" with actually ferocity.
"Perhaps, then, you have sprained
your angle, sir?"
Wiih painful slowness the old man
lifted his pet leg in both bands, set it
caielully on the floor, rose slowly from
his chair and lo iking down upon t e
unfortunate youth with mingled pity
and wrath, burst forth in ihe sublimity
of rage:
