CANNOT STAND Till. PACE.
ll is evident fiom tlio folio v. ing, taken
from the Nelson Economist, that thst
champion of the mine owners cannot
stomach Iheir latest move in regard to
tho Italians from Seattle,   It says :
"There can bc uo disguising the fact
that matters havo taken a lerloUS turn
the past few acekB. In the absence of
reliable information The Economist refrains from discussing certain phases of
tlie situation, bnt it does hope that nothing will be done by either mine-owners
or miners that will result in the re-
enactment in British Columbia ol the
bloody outrages that have lone mnde
Pennsylvania a disgrace to civilisation.
British Columbia, hinco it first became
known as a great mineral producer, has
borne an enviable reputation for law and
order, and v.c trust nothing will be don.'
that will result in the loss of its good
name.

Jeffrie. I. Cknmplon.
James J. Jeffries retains the championship of the world. Referee George
Slier gh iug blm the decision at the end
of the 25tb round over sailor Tom
Sharkey, at the Coney Island Sporting
Club.
It was one of the most marvelous battles that has taken place, and the greatest crowd that ever gathered ln the
Coney Island club house witnessed the
desperate struggle for supremacy. In
five rounds Jeffries had the better of the
fight—in the first two and the last
three; during the other 20 Sharkey
forced the issue, and, like a bull terrier, was at his man with all his force
unceasingly. In those 20 rounds Jerries' great weight and brawn helped
him hold off the Bailor, and in the 22d
round he swung ln a couple of vicious
uppercuts that made Sharkey groggy.
Tom came back again in the 24th and
25th, but he was weakened greatly by
Jeffries' vicious blows. One minute before the gong sounded to end the fight
Jeffries' left glove came off and practically the contest was over. The referee motioned to Jeffries' corner, an
American flag was flung over the champion's shoulders, and the crowd on that
side and end of the arena cheered wildly. The crowd on the opposite side and
end ln Sharkey's corner yelled for
Sharkey, and the men were led back
to their dressing rooms.
When seen ln his dressing room after
the contest Jeffries Bald:
"Sharkey is the hardest and best
man I have ever met and I hardly expect to meet a better one ln the future.
Within six months I have met and defeated the best two men ln the world
and will now take a long rest, probably
nine months or a year. Never again
will I fight under the same conditions.
The heat from the lights overhead tended to take away a great deal of my
steam and the glare from the floor
weakened my eyes. My left arm, the
one that was injured while training,
gave out ln the fourth round and I
could not use lt properly for the rest
of the battle or the result would have
been different, for I think that I could
have knocked him out. Sharkey is a
game man and hard to beat, but I had
uo thought of any different result at
any time during the battle. After my
rest which I think the public will agree
that I deserve I will again be ready to
meet any and all who aspire to my
title."
Sharkey was Inconsolable and cried
like a child when he went to his quarters and refused to talk, but Tom
O'Rourke, has manager, expressed the
opinion that the sailor should have re-
reived the decision. He said that two
of Sharkey's ribs were broken and that
during the last four rounds Tom's left
hand was useless, having been broken
on Jeffries' hand. Although the decision was against him he said Sharkey
would not give up, but would seek another match and the next time the result would be different.
"But I don't think this fellow will
want to tackle Tom again," said
O'Rourke, his manager, expressed the
until he agrees to another meeting or
make him crawl."
Bob Fltzsimmons was greatly pleased
at the result of the fight, declaring that
his contract to flght the winner brought
him once more the chance to flght Jeffries, who wrested the championship
from him.

LADYSMITH HAS SURRENDERED
The Iconoclast, near Keller, Wash., ls
looking fine. The miners are running
through a nice looking quartz heavily
mineralized, and have cut through
some nice stringers of copper ore.
Two mines in the immediate vicinity
of Meyers Falls, Wash., will begin the
steady shipment of ore within the next
thirty days, and the indications are
that if the shipments are once started
they will continue throughout tbe entire winter season.
The gold output of Cripple Creek district in October was $2,001,600. This
in the first month's production that has
exceeded $2,000,000. It ls estimate-
that the total for the year will not fall
short of $18,000,000.
The Helena-Frisco Compan;', operating the well known mine on Canyon
creek, ln the Coeur d'Alene district,
has enlarged Its borders and has taken
ln the property of the Galena Mining
Company, the group owned by the Milwaukee Mining Company and the Black
Bear claim.
In tbe drift at the tenth level from
the Lee shaft of the Isabella company
at Cripple Creek, Col., miners are working behind a bulkhead In six Inches of
ore literally covered with free gold,
which would easily assay from $150,000
to $200,000 to the ton, and probably
higher. The miners are paid to change
their clothes before entering. They
are locked ln, and they change their
clothes again when let out The mineral appeared at first to be a granite
quartz. It is of a reddish color, and
upon closer examination crystalized
quartz can be seen, and all over and
through the quartz are small silvers of
free gold. On some pieces lt would be
impossible to place the point of a pencil without touching solid gold. It
would appear that the sylvanlte, cala-
vite and oxidized calaverlte found
above has at greater depth changed to
free gold.
The directors of the Bonanza Mining
Company, whose mine is near Boss-
burg, Wash., declared monthly dividend
No. 4, of a quarter cent per share, to
be paid November 20 to stockholders of
record November 16.
The work of overhauling the Tiger j
mill at Burke, Idaho, continues.   It is
not expected that it will be ready to run '
before December 1.

—Colenwo Hn. Been Evacuated.
New York, Nov. 5.—A cable from Brussels says it is stated that Dr. Leyds has
private advices to the effect tliat I_«dy-
amith has fallen before the Boer attack
and that the remnants of White's army
are prisoners of war. The report can not
be confirmed. It is known that Leyds
has constantly kept in communication
with Pretoria and Transvaal, despite the
fact that the British hold the wires and it
is believed that British reverses will first
be known on the contitnent
Fenrful Artillery Duel.
Londc n. Nov. 5.—A dispatch from Ladysmith, dn tori November 2, morning, says:
"During the night the Boers moved near
the Hritish position and mounted guns in
fresh places. Meanwhile the naval guns
have been moved to more favorable positions, nearer the town and commanding
some of the Boer batteries. At 6 o'clock
this morning General White ordered the
bombardment of the enemy and the blue
jackets opened the ball. The Boers replied vigorously. They fired straight and
some of the British were hit A terrible
artillery duel has been proceeding for over
three hours. So far the naval guns are
the only ones that have engaged the enemy."
Another special dispatch from Ladysmith, bearing date of November 2, says:
"The artillery duel is proceeding splendidly. The British guns aie firing three shots
to the Boers' one."
London, Nov. 5.—Colenso has been evacuated today.
This is undoubtedly a most serious mat
ter for the British in Natal, as it not only
testifies to the complete investment of
Ladysmith by the Boers, but makes the
relief of General Sir George Stewart
White an extremely, difficult operation,
The railway from Ladysmith crosses Tu-
gela at Colenso, which is now in flood
The town itself is of small importance. It
is dominated by the hills on the north
side of the river and so was untenable if
the Bjers have advanced, a_fcihey seem to
have done. Moreover, only * small naval
and colonial force was stationed at Colenso.
The seriousness of the evacuation, however, lies in the fact that Commandant
,1 on ber I., while completely investing Sir
George White at Ladysmith, can seize this
Tiigela bridge, and if he haa sufficient
troops can detach a force and send it
southward on Pietermaritzburg, and in
any case by destroying the bridge and railway can prevent any relief expedition
reaching Sir George White for some time.
Deftett tn tke Reserve.
New York, Nov. fl.—The Financier says:
For the first time since the panic of 1-.93
the clearing house banks of New York
city report a deficit in reserves, the cash
on hand falling below the required limit
by $3.18,350. The deficit is due to the
heavy withdrawals in cash, contractions
in loans und deposits having been insullic-
ient to lower requirements to the proper
figures. The stitement is further complicated by the addition of a new bank, the
Hide and Leather National to the clearing
house. In order to get at the real exchanges for a proper comparison it is necessary to offset totals of this institution.
This done, it appears that the losses of
the regular members have been $2,619,100
in loans, $7,320,900 in deposits and $5,259,-
200 in cash, which puts a new meaning
on the exhibit as a whole. A great deal
of surprise was expressed when the statement appeared that loans had fallen off
less than a quarter of a million, as published in the totals, and in explanation
the expanding business on the stock exchange was cited. Speculation haa been
much more active of late, and little if any
contraction in loans waa looked for. It
seems, however, that loans really have
been reduced over two and one-half millions.
Rrltl.k  Gnrrtaon  Laugh*.
London, Nov. 7.—An immense weight
was lifted from the public mind by a briel
official dispatch, by which the continental
stories of disaster at Ladysmith were
proved to be false. But the dispatch itself revived the anxiety of the more timid
in another quarter, as' it indicated that
(_en. White, instead of sitting quietly and
acting wholly on the defensive, as it is
held in many quarters h** ought _o do, persists in making sorties and risking another Nicholsen's Nek disaster.
Generally, however, the cheery tone of
the dispatch, showing there is no anxiety
at Ladysmith as regards the ability of the
beleaguered gurrison to hold its own, has
had an excellent effect on the country.
From the fact that White is able to take
the offensive and shell the Boer camp it
seems Ladysmith is not so slosely besieged
as was supposed.
Not much importance, however, is attached to the shelling of the Boer laager
as the war office has no confirmation of
the story that the Orange Free Staters-
camp at Hesters has been captured. Wire,
this true, it might have considerable ei-
feet on the future attitude of the Orange
Free State, which is not so directly concerned in the conflict as the Transvaal.

The Tom Thumb has struck it rich.
Just how rich cannot be learned, but
it is known that the south drift at the
150-foot level shows Ave feet of ore
which has assayed close to $200 per
ton. It is the general belief that the
average value is fully $100 per ton. In
the north drift is three feet of fair
grade ore. The mine never looked as
well before.
Ten feet of drift has been run toward
the shaft on the Mountain Lion from
the bottom of the winze that has been
sunk from the 320-foot level. The
winze is 125 feet in depth. It will take
about 20 days to run to the shaft. When
that has been done and a connection
made, the shaft will be sunk 600 feet
deeper.
The superintendent of the Jim Blaine

The pleasant method and beneficial
effect* of the well known remedy,
-TBUP or Fios, mannfactared by the
Cai.ifoknia Fio Svnur Co., illustrate
the value of obtaining the liquid laxative principles of plants known to be
medicinally laxative and presenting
them in the form most refreshing to the
taste and acceptable to the system. It
is the one perfect strengthening laxative, cleansing the system effectually,
dispelling colds, headaches and fevers
gently yet promptly and enabling one
to overcome habitual constipation permanently. Its perfect freedom from
every objectionable quality and substance, and its acting on the kidneys,
liver and bowels, without weakening
or irritating them, make it the ideal
laxative.
In the process of manufacturing figs
are need, aa they are pleasant to the
taste, but the medicinal qualities of the
remedy are obtained from senna and
other aromatic plants, by a method
known to the Cai.iforni v Fio Sykup

effects and to avoid imitations, please
remember the full name of the Company

Did you ever have that feeling of oppression, like a weight on your chest, or a load of cobble-stones ln your
stomach, keeping you awake nights with a horrible sensation of anxiety, or tossing restlessly in terrible dreams,
that make the cold perspiration break out all over you ? That's insomnia, or sleeplessness, and some unfortunates suffer with it night after night, until their reason is in danger and they are on the edge of going mad. The
cause of this fearful ailment is in the stoViach and bowels, and a Cascaret taken at night will soon bring relief and
give the sufferer sweet, refreshing sleep.   Always insist on getting CASCARETSl

APP'j* to—Msth.s„ii llrul,
The Silti r-L:ad M.nes Association
has ovt'idoiie matter* in importing
Italians to woik in their mines in
places of the miners now in tho country. Among all the newspapers supporting it, only one, the Mining Review of .S.tndon, has the nerve to try
to justify this latest move. Those
newspaper.! which have retained a
ehred of independence, such as the
Economist and the Miner of Nelson,
either ignore the matter altogether in
their editorial columns or straightway
condemn tbe importation. In another column we quote the Economist.
The Sandon Mining Review, which
ha? set out to blindly follow Secretary
T.iimie, was indignnntly denouncing
Sifton's Doukhobors only a short lime
sgo. Now it swallows Tolaiie's Dagoes without a chaser. The Review is
stauding iu a dangerously slippery
place M.d the crumbling support given
by the mine owners is a yery poor
prop for it to lean upon. It should
take heed lest its head and heels suddenly change places.
•Tis cmr pleasure to meet face to face.
