without timber men or timbers, it is
evident that some extremely cheap
mining work is being done.
While the ore cannot be called hard
or difficult to break down, still air rock
drills aro used in the work to good advantage.
While the caving in system of mining
is by no means capable of geuerul application, it baa a great field of usefulness and its introduction into other
Rocky mountain mines will not lie long
delayed.
The dangers of slopes and working*
supported by rolling- timbers are avoided. Tbe Vacancies left by extraeted ore
ure at once filled iu, whilst the displace-
uieiit ordiaturbance ot the formation iu

danger and extent of tbe necessary settling readily ascertained and circumscribed.
Tbe fsct that the system has proven
each a success and so far without any
accident af any kind certifies both to the
excellence of the system and to the
ability with which it Ins been cairied
out.

mining of the vast ore bodies, and so far
with marked success. This system
though long practiced In the iron mines
'if Michigan ami other middle states, is
decidedly a novelty in the mining of
goll or silver ore. Tlie application of it
io the initios ol tbe Mercur district
represents a decided land mark in the

mining. Gradually but euiely western

this sesson, the match to decide the deputed snpremecy between these two

should prove a .rood one from a spectators standpoint- The match ahould, according to custom, be played on tbe New

could not arrange to leave town, the
Deuverites agroed to waive this advantage and propose lo meet the champions
on tbeir own ground. Tbo Red and

Manila, Nov. 28.-The insurgents have ;rade Jg concerned the compialnt 0f un-
evacuated Alangalaien, piovince of Pan* | fleaKOnab,y mlld weather restricting re-
gasanan, leaving seven American and 1)4
Spanish prisoneis, who escaped in the confusion of tbe Filipino retreat. The Americans are P. J. Green and Ueorge Powers of
the Battleship Oregon, Thomas Edwards
snd Charles Bird of the Sixteenth infantry,
Henry W. James of the Twelfth infantry,
John Desmond of the (Signal corps, and (i.
H. Huber of I/iwe's scouts.
They report that two Americans were
unable to escape and are with tlie insurgents. They are David Scott of the Twenty-fourth infantry and William Sherby of
the hospital corps. Pour deserters are with
the FUipinos-^Howard, Marl in and Pord
(Californians), and Watts, whose former
regiment is unknown. Howard is the only
one serving with the insurgents. He ia a
captain of artillery.
Col. Bell of the Thirty-fourth volunteers
arrived at Mangalaren last evening. After
a hard inarch and the fording of the Agno,
he found that Fowler's company of the
Thirty-third had occupied the town for
two days. The insurgents, Gen. Alejan-
drine commanding, retreated to the mountains behind the town, short of food and
ammunition. Besides this, his men were
deserting him, and six cannon, which thc
insurgents were dragging, impeded their
march.
Col. Bell proposes to follow the Filipinos
until he can bring about a decisive light or
they are scattered. Mangalaren was
strongly fortified with rifle pits commanding tbe road, but the insurg.nts abandoned
tbe place without firing a shot.
Three hundred Spanish prisoners who
escaped from tbeir captors before the American advance, including civil officials of
rank, who had been in the hands of the
Filipinos for more than a year, and many
officers, have arrived at Manila during the
past week.*Tbe Francisco Reyes brought
100 of them from Wheaton. Some were
ill and had to -be carried from Tayug to
San Fabian in army wagons. Delegations
of these former prisoners have visited Gen.
Otis in order to thank him for his ho.-pi-
tality, which included the furnishing of
food and clothes. Senor Jamarillo. the
Spanish commissioner, is making arrangements to send them to Spain.
Buencamino has been lodged in comfortable quarters at the police station with his
family. Other persons are not allowed to
communicate with him. He is classed as
being the most slippery person connected
with the insurrection. He was a colonel
in tbe Spanish army and a traitor to Spain.
At the time of the first insurrection he
tried to sell out the Filipinos and bis present imprisonment incites no sympathy
among hia people, while Spaniards think
it is mistaken leniency for Americans to
refrain from shooting bim cn the Luneta,
the fata which was dealt out to better
men in the anti-Spanish upri-ing.
Wheaton reports that the natives have
threatened vi.lence to Aguinaldo's mother,
who is now .sheltered in a convent with a
guard. Otis has ordered her brought to
Manila for safety.
tail distribution is reported from niuny
cities. But, rising superior to this, and

strength of textiles, particularly cotton
goods, which reflect some additional
-"trength of the raw product, due to
•mailer receipts and better foreign advices, but in a larger measure also portray the influence of active demand
earning on a market exceptionally bare
if blocks. A further advance In print
cloths, a feature this week, has brought
I he quotation for standard grades up to

voars past. Raw wool is higher on the
weak at all markets on active demand

ial for which a good fall demand has
'jeen experienced and in which further
price advances are expected. The
American market for wool ls still
claimed to be the cheapest in the
world. The dullness ln heavy winter
■roods produced by the present warm
weaiher has not as yet served to im-
pui. confidence in wholesale lines.

Manila, Nov. 20.—Sennr Buencamino,
former member of Aguiiialdo's cabinet,
who has been captured, admits th.it the
rebel line has gone to pieces. He says
Aguinaldo lias gone to Bayombong and
it is now merely a matter of persistent
chasing in order to catch him. The whole
trouble, he said, would soon be ended.
Buencamino had $2000 in gold when he
was captured, but had no clothing. He
came to Manila wearing borrowed garments. Buencamino, who was Again ilda's
secretary of state, says that when his
party was attacked Aguinaldo's mother,
with her 4-yeir-old grandson, g t inlo the
brush. Buencamino thought they had
been killed. Wheaton, however, has Aguinaldo's son, but his mother bas not been
found.    Our  cavalry is pushing toward

Rome, Nov. 23, 1899. (Special Cable.)
Pope Leo is an early riser, and by
that I mean a man who is out of bed
and at work at Ove o'clock In tho morning. He takes a light breakfast—a
little very weak coffee with plenty of
milk, and a piece of bread. He works,
reading or writing and receiving some
visits, until lunch time. In the afternoon he takes his walk, and when in
ordinary health spends some time in
the gardens of the Vatican; then he
returns to hia apartment, where he
says his rosary. He may then receive
a few visitors, after which he takes a
nap and dines. At ten P. M. he reads
the newspapers and then retires for
tne night   The Pope thus really works

treatment consists ln crushing, roasting and amalgamating without the use

The main shaft of the Mother Lode
mine In Dead wood camp Is now down

average ln .value at least $15 to tbe

The list of producing mines at Ymlr
Ib constantly increasing. The output
for 1899 will aggregate over 15,000
tons. Official returns of the Ymlr mine
for September show a favorable condition ot affairs at that big property.
The Virginia of Rossland, which Is
planning steady and regular shipments
will have a siding of Its own for loading the ore.
The provincial government Is now
credited with quietly taking a hand ln
the Slocan labor troubles. By the tacit
threat ot doubling the output tax on
minerals, It may endeavor to force the
mine owners of that district to reopen
their properties. It is possible that
the move will be successful, but the
mine managers themselves are preparing to retaliate by fighting the constitutionality ot the eight hour measure,
and they will carry their campaign to
the privy council in England.
One of the most Important mining
deals which has been made in Ft.
Steele country Is the bonding of the
ftstella group of seven claims to an
English corporation for an amount ap
proximating $160,000. The details of
the transaction have not been mado
known. I. Is learped that the diamond
drill at the North Star Is doing excellent worK. The tramway ls being built
under the direction of W. W. Barker of
the Ti-.iton Iron Company. This
tramway will be 6200 feet long and
have a carrying capacity of 10 tons
per hour. On Sand creek the Empire
Mining company is employing several
men in development The company expects to make regular shipments during the venter. The Burton and Wyn-
stay In the same vicinity are doing extensive work. This Is property of the
Mackintosh syndicate. At the Chick-
nmonstone a large amount of work is
being done, and the force will be Increased to 25 men ln a short lime.
MINING   NOTES.
An exciting strike of rich placer gold
has been made near the depot In Sumpter, Ore.
Hoisting Black Bear ore has begun
at Loomls and the famous mine Is at
work again. Now machinery works
well nnd this week the mill will start,
and dividends are expected to begin
about the* first of the new year. Other
mines showing up well in this district.
The placer mines In French gulch, 22
miles south of Anaconda have closed
for the season and W. R. Alien, one
of the moat extensive operators, has
come In with no small amount of gold
dust which be found ready sale for at
the state banks.
The winze from the adit level on tbe
Review mine of Meyers Creek camp,
near Republic, has been completed for
the present to a depth of 68 feet. At a
depth of 60 feet, leaving tbe balance for
a sump, the men have stinted to open
up another level. A westerly drift will
be run. It Is from this depth that soma
of the richest ore ln the mine was encountered.
The Sixteen to One Mining company
st Wallace, Idaho, now has the stationary cables for Its tramway stretched,
and the moving cable, which hauls the
buckets is up there ready to be placed
in position. The mill is not yet ready
to run, the force at work on it having
been depleted to aid ln the stretching
ot tbe cables, but it will be ready for
work by the time the tramway Is completed—some time early next month.
There is no feature of mine development more important than providing
for drainage. Tunnels and drifts should
always i-e run at a slight grade, sufficient to In.nir*) the flow of water toward tbe natural outlet or toward a
shaft or sucip from which It ls removed to the f Ui lure by buckets or pumps.
A drain thttlM not only be provided,
but sbotud always be kept open. In
large tunnels the drain is often placet!
under the center of tbe track, and this
nnswi t well where the flow of water
is large, but where It is small the drain
should l:e placed at one side or both
sides of the track, where it ls readily
accessible and may always be kept
clear of debris. Very often prospectors,
in their haste to advance their work,
fail to make proper provision for drainage and do poor timbering with dlsaa
trims tesults later.

New York, Nov. 20.—liie World puli-
li-li. s a letter from ll.iv.uia stating that
I'nited States officials, after mnnths t.f
secret investigation, have diacoveied that
the battleship Maine was blown up by
guncotton torpedoes placed in the bay
for that purpose.
The guncotton, 700 pounds of which
wss used, wss sent from Barcelona to
Admiral Mantrrola, commanding the port
of Havana, and wss either stolen from
the mng.i_.iiu. where the stuff wss stored,
or taken away Witt the knowledge of the
officials in clung.*.
Admiral Manterola's records will undoubtedly show the names of his subordinates who had direct control of the explosives, and in that way the identity of
the authors and executioners of the plot
to destroy thc Maine may be discovered.

"The garrison at Ladysmith was strange.

I-undon, Nov. 26—The portion in Natal mains full of perplexities, which the
censorship baa Increased, Although a di-
vinion and a half have now readied Pin-
liiin, that place is practically powerless,
linsupplied with cavalry and artillery, and
until these arrive the situation will undoubtedly remain grave. With three be-
leagnied garrisons in Natal besides Kitu-
berly and Mufeking, and no signs of sm--
cin in the immediate future, it is no wonder that the outlook is regarded as dis
tinclly gloomy, und that the iiust possible
is made of (ieneral Metliuen's success,
such as it was. That battle decided nothing, and il seems certain that many ex
perls are of the opinion tliat the story
of the return of the pursuing cavahy
without getting in touch with the retreating Boers indicates that ths cavalry discovered in time that if it had gone on
it would have soon been on the Pretoria
lace course with its comrades of tlie Hussars. It will not suipri-e anyone greatly

Manila, Nov. 25.—Severe lighting north

were killed and 25 wounded, including
three officers. The insurgents are retreating to Santa Barbara, but the lighting continues.
Oen. MacArthur has returned to Tarlac
and has established his headquarters in
Agninuldo's former residence.
The inhabitants of Sun Carlos met the
Americans with a band, formerly attached
to the insurgent army, and the mayor,
with On. MacArthur and Col. Bell, in
carriages, headed the procession through
the town.
Foreigners in the territory assert that
Aguin.ddo was not expecting the American
advance for a month, when the taina would
have finished. He hud permitted a large
part of his army to scatter to their homes
and do harvesting, nnd the soldiers had
hidden their rifles about their homes. If
this is true, many of the rifles are likely
to be brought in to secure the $30 offered
for each weapon turned over.
The fording of the Pumanga river above
Tarlac by the Thirty-sixth regiment and a

a noteworthy feature, as tiie river is broad

A Foul Murder.
Spokane, Nov. 20.-—A mo.t f->ul murder
was committed a short time ago st a
lonely spot two miles west of the army
post, where a little trail, leading to Fort
Wright from a few scattered houses, winds
t hiiiii»h barren patches of ground. The
evidences of the tragedy were discovered
Saturday and go to show that the murder
was not only deliberately planned, but
also that the assassin dragged the body,
-iri-hahly still alive, a quarter of a mile
over stony ground and then sought te
hide the evidence of his crime by hastily
digging a shallow grave in which the
remains were laid and covered over with
two feet of earth.
August Zaspel was the victim. William
Frank, known as "Crazy Bill, tha Butcher," i. the suspected perpetrator of the
horrible deed. The body was exhumed
immediately and now lies in the undertaking parlors pending an inquest Frank
was arrested and is confined in tha county
jail. Jealousy is the supposed cause of
the crime.

London, Nov. 28.—The war department
has received the following dispatch from
(Jen. Buller, dated at I-ictcnnaritzbuig on
Sunday:
"Gen. Ilildyard, from Estcourt, made a
successful attack Nov. 23, with three battalions, one Held battery, a naval gun and
70 mounted troops, on the enemy occupying llvacon Hill, which dominates William
Orange, and had interrupted his communications. As a result of the operations, the
enemy is retiiing and the railway and telegraph lines have been restored between
Estcourt and Weston.
"Our loss was about 14 killed snd 60
wounded. Ilildyard has advanced to a position near Frere, as he hopes to cut off
the enemy, who is believed to be retiring
on Colenso, via Weenen. Barton, from
Weston, has advanced to Estcourt.
'Us Boon as communication is restored I
will telegraph particulars. So far aa I eaa
make out, the operation is one for which
Ilildyard and tbe troops deserve much
credit.  The railwsy is open to Frere.''

NEW DENVKR, B. O
This week's news of tho strike situation, after tbe hope raising report**
sent out lost w<»ek only to be met I*)
a flat contradiction, arc not encouraging. Rumor has it that tho Ksslo
Board of Trade has oil. red to act'as a
go -between for the Association and
the Miners' Union. The 1st of December has come and for all that it-
known lo outsiders the question is as
far as cer from settlement. AH

ready for a settlement, A locul
member of the Association sums up
their views in one sentence., "We are
willing to pay $3.50 per shitt hut the
Union must not be tto arregant." A-.
wc undeistand it, the men wish to
take up their work where they It ft oil
lust Juue, with the exception of the
length of shifts. There tied be no
fear of the Unions forcing the services
of any of its members on any company.
The average union man of this camp
would hardly stay where he was no.
waa ted and all are prepared to give
$3 50 worth of work per shift. This
question of tbe hiring and . dismissing
ot tho men look is if tho A.socl.'ttitili
wu-ked to pose as the injured party
for the benefit of the galleries, while
as n matter of fact the question was
uever put forward by the Miuers'
Union. It is nol the principle of the
Western Federation ot Miners to
protect poor miuers at the expense of
the rest.

Old Mothe.i Hubbard
Went Io her cupboard
To net her poor doggie some crusts,
When she uot there
Her cupboard was bare—
And oh, how Hhe rousted the trust".
Tho proposal to purchase a  suitable
flag to fly ovei our new school  house,
should meet with the  support  of all
the   townsfolk,    regaidlcss   of   their
nationality.   At tbe precer.t time more
e-p.'ci.iliv should the matter appeul   to
the Di Hi _h und Canadians among  us.
While   even   now   British    subjects
collected     from     India,     Australia,
Great Britain and Canada are giving
up their lives in defence of this flag,
the constant sight of it before the boys
sndgiih ot  our  country   will   teach
them that there  is    something    more
within its folds than the mere material,
however cheap or costly.   The flat; of
any eouutry is  more than  "a rag."
Tbe purchasing   of  a   flat;   for   the
Silverton school should be an object
lesson and an example for the citizens
of other towns to  follow.    Patriotism
•bouid be taught to all children, it will
make    them    good   citizens   of   any
country, whether   at home or abroad.
Let th'tm learn  the sentiment as  well
the   words  of   this poem   in   their
Reader:
"Breathes there a man, with soul so .load
Who never to himself hath said,
This ia my own, my native land I
Whose heart haili ne'er with in hi in hurn'd
As home bis footsteps he li.it h turned
From wandering on a foreign strand ?
If such there he, go, mark him well;
For him no minstrel raptures swell;
High though his title, pioudhis name.
Boundless his wealth as wish can oluim,
Despite his lilies, power, >nd pelf,
The «retch concentred all lu sail,
Living, ahall forfeit fair renown,
And, doubly dyimr, ahall go dowi:
To the vile dtint. Irom whence he sprung
Unwept, ttnlionoici., und UHHIWg."
