INDIANS ON THE YUKON.
They   Submit   to   Mm v.i tion With   Itus t-
natlon— 1 Imy Are   Also   Suid   to lie
Hood-Nut ult d antl HarmIcm.
Tho Indians on tho Yukon are
good-natured and harmless, says a
writer in Forest und Stream. In
many ways they remind one of tho
(Southern negro. 'ihey sing "My
Girl's a Iligh-Eorn Lfidy" and all
the latest music hall airs, lt is said
mat tho iJiiusii drum boat sounds
around thu world, but nowadays
popular songs do the same thing,
and in a very much moro thorough
way. At Guam, in tho Ladrones,
the newspapers toll us the natives
sing '"Ta-ra-ra Eoom-de-ayc," and
this air is often heard along tho
Yukon. No doubt it has penetrated
to 1 imbuctoo and the sacred city of
Thibet. Judging from thc Yukon,
native music seems to be dying out.
The catchy airs of tho music hall are
supplying a world of music. Tho
Indians have very keen ears, though
their voices can hardly be called melodious. Somo of them will catch an
air alter hearing it once, and reproduce it corrcotly by humming or
on the mouth-organ. I never heard
an Indian whistle or sing at the full
extent of his lungs, though very
likely they do both.
Givo an Indian a mouth-organ,
"juice harp," as Huckleberry I'inn's
negro had it, or an accordion, and
you will insure his happiness, no
matter if he is cold or starving. The
Indian is as yet ignorant of the banjo, but when he is once introduced
to it I think it will be his favorite
instrument, as it is with his sable
brother, lt must be borne in mind
that I tirm speaking of tho interior
Indians. Tho coast Indians are u
very different breed. Ihey arc fighters and quarrelsome, robbing tba
white man by exorbitant packing
charges now that they have learned
it isn't wise t.o do the thins by
forc<-. of arms, lt was those Indians
who,'by right of their possession of
the passes, made the interior an unknown country for so long to thu
whi'tft man. Up to a very recent data
they effectually - monopolized tho
trade of tho Yukon. They oven checkmated the Hudson Bay Company
whei' it attempted to gain an en-
i trance into the country from the
cast, capturing and burning tho post
established at Fort Selkirk in 1SS2.
These Indians arc powerfully built,
and a twelve-year-old girl will trudjo
along with as heavy a pack as tho
average white man can carry, while
their skookum packers carry as much
os a horse.
Indians are not very particular
about the condition of their food,
and will dispose of some pretty rank
messes, but one thing- they will not
oat is wolf. More surprising still,
if true, is the reported fact that
Indian dogs will not eat wolf. These
dogs rob white men's caches, tearing
open sacks and gorging on raw flour
and oatmeal, and nothing from soap
to sulphur matches is safe from their
depredations. Wanting to dispose of
tho carcasses of tho wolves wo killed
below Selkirk, I asked the Indians ii
they could uso thorn. They said no.
1 suggested feeding to tho dogs,- aud
they shook their heads again. "Tog
no muck muck wolf," thoy said.
"Todder way.'wolf'muck muck doer."

EMPIRE VALLEY
A local writer lias a fine article
in Uie -News-'Advertiser, lt seems
there has been a saisfactory in-
creuse of deer on the slopes of the
Fraser River, since the Chilcotin
Indiani- have stopped the Spring
shooting'. Empire Valley was almost denuded of deer. 10 years
ago, large bands of deer, 100 or
more, could be seen in the Fall,
feeding on the great sitle hills,
that slope up to the snowy Alts
of Upper Bridge River.
'■'A few years ago an enterprising teamster, tired of travelling
the Cariboo road, and wishing
to give his team a rest; came
over here with a wagon load of
•icktahs' —and traded for deer-
hides. The Indians then swarmed over the river, and a settler
says 'it was like a fair at the ferry crossing.' Immense numbers
of deer were slaughtered, their
hides peeled off, aud their carcases left to rot.
"Within the last few days, several parties of Indians have passed here for the Ground Hog Hills
the summer resort of the Deer,—
where many Indians spend part
of every summer hunting. What
is the inducement ? Simply the
fact that the sprouting horns
Imve a good market value to
Chinamen, for Chinese medicine.
Iu the Spring the unborn fawns
can be turned iuto cash at the
China store.
Strange to say, the Big-Horn
sheep are holding their own. and
last winter bunds of GO were seen
and the writer states he saw 13
111 a place easy of access, and he
accounts for it as follows.—The
Indian can hunt deer on horseback ; he lias simply to ride a-
long and shoot his deer, but to
kill sheep means hard work. He
must hunt on foot, cross g'rea,t
gulches, toil up steep slopes, aud
scale rocky heights. The sheep
is ever ou tlie watch for him, and
once disturbed, soon puts miles
of rough ground between itself
and the enemy. Then he must
pack tlie meat when killed, retracing his steps over the rougljt
ground. The sheep cannot s<*»
readily be turned into cash. It
has no velvet horns for the Chinaman. The trader has uo use
for its hide, aud the hunter prefers deer meat to dry and eat.
True the big ranis' heads have
value, but they are scarce, and
hard to get, and the shooting of
them interferes very little with
the main stock.
In conclusion, " Thank goodness, the sheep, that creature of
the glorious mountain tops, is
the spoilsman's own beast, and
will so remain as long as the Indian has deer to slay. Therefore let the sportsman treat the
sheep fairly, and also interest
himself iu the fate of its more
humble and useful neighbor,—
the deer.

NAMED FOR CANADA
CHRISTENED  GREAT   BATTLESHIP IN
HONOR OF THE DOMINION.
MINING   NOTES.
Pen  Picture   of  Canada's   New   Literary
Light-A Stalwart  l'oct.
A poet of almost, heroic build is
Arthur Stringer. There aiv six feet
and an inch of him. Also h/ is more
or less good to look at. An English
recruiting sergeant would scan him
with longing eyes. Seeing him in a
crowd you might pick him out for a
champion athlete or, by his smooth
face, for a matinee idol. There's
nothing about him to sug-g&t the
poet---save his poetry. Neither docs
he seen; to have the poetic tompera-
nient. Lc is no dreamer, no idler.
His mental poise seem? to be as
sound and its well bala..<?d as his
physical carriage, which is saying a
good dc-al.
Canada is rather proud of having
produced such a poet, and with good
cause, Lgndon, Ontario, is his birthplace. His yeas are about thirty.
JTe cornea from a fine old English
iamily in which there's an earldom
or something of the sort, but IM?.
Stringer carefully kec^s this fact in
tho background. Ho stands on his
own feet. You may see by {.Iftiripjr
at him that he needs no coat-alarms background to proclaim bis no-
tility.
Ho studied ant', piuyed football at
Toronto Cnlve sity and at Oxford.
If they gave him any detrrees he has
forgotten it. I_ofore he was twenty-
five he had published two volumes of
verse iu Canada. They were slim
little volumes which brought him
small fame and less money. Yet it
was poetry, pood poetry. The Canadians, however, prefer to wait until
"The States" discover their Reniuses
beioro showing their own appreciation, So Mr. Stringer sailed down
into New York, prepared to starve
in a ball bedroom. But ho didn't.
The New York magazine editors—
who are much maligned, vou know—
promptly discovered that his poetry
was good and paid him well for h's
verses. Sineo then, both by short.
stories and verse, he has been winning wide recognition and the rewards,which accompany thc same.
Just now, while his new book of
poems i? beiner praised bv the London critics, while the publishers are
issuing hir. first novel, "The Silver
Poppy." Mr. Stringer is up in Ontario, on the shores of Lake Erie,
looking after his f.uit farm, working
ii) blue thirt and overalls and enjoying himself hugely. Next fall, when
!u's iro'ons and rears an(i crapes
have all been gathered and sold, he
will pack his trou.-S and typewriting
machine and start either for New
York or London, where he will settle
down for a winter's hard work.
Mr. Stringer's novel is likelv to receive an extraordinary amount of attention in the newspapers on account of the identity of the well-
known writer who figures in the book
as Cordelia Vaug'm. Mr. Strinrer
first mot the ladv in the manner described in the book, and his expediences of this "ye'low vampire" are
faithfully described. Everv writer in
New York will know the original of
Mr. Strlnper's heroine, and few will
dispute tho truth of his portmvol.
lt is more than likelv thnt Cordelia
Vaughn's real name will soon be stier-
_,ea|;u4 to th<; newspapers.—The --.ad-

in the Kveut.
"Dominion" is the name which the
British Government chose when wishing to christen a great battleship in
Our honor. The newest of Britain's
huge men-o'-war was launched at
Barrow on the last Monday in August, in the presence of a distinguished company. The ceremony of naming the ship was performed by Princess Louise, and to add "local color" to tho event Pulee Island champagne was used. The vessel being
new and unsophisticated was jt-st us
well pleased as though Veuve (-'liquet
had been permitted to trickle __i_\vn
her nose
Terrible Fighting Machine.
The Dominion, when she is completed, will represent the highest
type of battleship ever built. She
will be ono o, the largest vessels ia
tho navy. Her guns are of the most
powerful ever constructed, and in one
minute they will be capable of firing one projectile of S5U pounds, sixteen of 3S0 pounds, and eight of
100 pounds, ln pursuit of an enemy,
the Dominion can fire ahead four projectiles of 8o0 pounds, eight of 380
pounds, and sixteen of 100 pounds.
Anything that she can approach
within twelve miles she can throw a
shell aboard of. In other words, the
Silver Spray would have little
chance in an encounter with her.
Her speed will be 18 J knots an
hour, and her officers and crew cost
will exioend $5,250,000, and She is
named after Canada.
Hvb Mew Warship*.
The Dominion, as stated, belongs
to the most powerful type of battleship in the British navy. She shares
with four sister ships the honor of
bei,ng the most formidable man-o'-
war floating the Union Jack. They
are the King Edward VII., launched
at Devonport; tho Commonwealth,
building at Fairfield; the Hindostan,
building at Clydebank; the New Zealand, building at Portsmouth. These
are all 16,850-ton ships. The weight
of metal discharged by one of these
Vc5S)ls in a single round is 5,920
lbs., and is greater than that, of any
other British ships. Two American
men-o'-war, the Georgia and the
Connecticut, exceed this figure, tremendous as it is, the latter being capable of unloading 7,380 pounds of
sudden death at one discharge.
Theoretical Improvement*.
Exports declare that the Dominion
and tho four other ships of her class
exemplify the new tendency of battleship designers to afford bettor protection to the secondary battery, and
to increase the calibre of the guns.
The improvement—for such we must
assume it to be—was first, noticeable
in the Mikasa, a battleship built for
the Japanese Government by Vickers
and IVIaxim, the builders of the Do
ininion. In lieu of the scattered casement system, a central battery is
used. It must be admitted, however,
that most of the "improvements"
which each of those great ships shows
on its predecessor are oi a theoretical nature. There is no finality about
them. 'Ihey represent experiments.
The reason is that there has been
little or no opportunity to test in
action the merits of the different systems of armaments. The bombardment of Alexandria in 1882 wrs
the first and last time that modern
British ships have been engaged. Tho
Spanish-American War was not as^-
suggestive of the power of these
loviathians as it might have been
had the navies of the two countries
been more ovenly matched. The
snme remark applies to the navftl
battles between China and Japan.
