Tlie naval force and marines co-operated
with the troops.   Thc gunboats Wheeling,

Noveleta and threw shells into that town
and Santa Cruz for an hour, preparing the
way for thc marines to land.   Two battalions, consisting of 450 marines under
Colonel Elliott, advanced along the peninsula from Cavite to Noveleta.   Thc only
way was up a    narrow    road through
swamps.   A mile beyond the marines' outpost column  was suddenly   encountered
with a volley from the trenches across the
road.   A flank  movement was executed
and the insurgents were driven from thc
trenches, the marine- wading through rice
held* in turning the flank of the enemy,
who retreated to strong sand fortifications
across the creek dividing the peninsula,
destroying the bridge across thc stream.
The marines waded through   more   rice
fields, forded the river in water to their
shoulders and carried the forts, meeting
with feeble resistance, the first encounter
having disheartened the enemy,   -quads
were sent to Novcleta and  burned  the
town and huts all along the road from
which tha enemy commenced the firm*,'.
There a junction was formed with  tho
scouts who had been sweeping the swamps
and thickets.   Thence the marines returned to Cavite thoroughly exhausted.

the millionaire miner, lin* arrived here
from Cap. Nome. She brought down several miners who had with them considerable gold duet. Captain Wick* of thc
Townsend made a trip to Kotzebut* sound
from Cape Nome in July and rescued 70

of .hiding gold. They were in the point
of breaking down from want of food and

Sonic time ago J. A. Osborne, of the
Rainy Lake Herald, came Into the possession of nn old diary of an old employe's, now deceased, of the Hudson
Bay company, and in rending lt thioii'
he learned that the writer described
very lucidly some mineral deposits on
the custom shore of Hudson's bay, In
the vlnclnlly of Great, and Utile Whale
rivers, In whnt Is known aa l.'ngnva
land. The description w*ns so clear
that Mr. Osborne succeeded in Ind-' ing
some Iloston capitalists to provide the
necessary funds to equip an expedition
to go and make a search for the miner-
uls. The parties left Rot Port.igo
about the first of June and Mr. Osboinn
returned Saturday from the trip, first
going to Oltawn, where ho and his associates filed on a largo tract of valuable
lands containing gold, silver, copper,
precious stones, nickel, Iron, clnnnliar,
gypsum, In fact almost all kinds of mineral of economic value. Mr. Osborne
says that the new region opened up, so
far as mineral wealth Is concerned, p.its
the Klondike lu the shade, and he snys
that Mr. Lowe of the geological survey,
who has put In two yenrs Investigating
thnt country, snys it Is the coming min-
ornl producing region of the American
continent. There ls plenty of room for
prospeetinK, as the region Is 400 by 100
miles hi extent. Tho country can lie
reached hy water from Boston, and Mr.
Osborne says that next spring a company will outfit a steamer and will send
her right up to their property with
$100,00n worth of supplies and materials for exploring and developing tltflr
claims. The experience of Mr. Osborne only goes to verify the claims
that the whole of Canada, from the
wilds of Labrador to the Pacific const.
Is one of nature's greatest storehouses
of minerals of economic and precious
value. If this region were opened up
by u railway, tner« would certainly be
a rich field for all kinds of mining enterprises. Besides onthrlclte coal,
there will be found lignite, beds of gypsum along the Missanbi; de-posits of
gold, silver, copper, tin, near Moose
Factory; and line potter's clay and silica sand.

Chicago, Oct. 0.—Thirty-five hundred
men gathered around ihe tables in the
great banquet hall of the Auditorium tonight ai the nnnufll banquet of the Marquette club. Uiis banquet Is a regular
event nnd although coming at the same
time as the fall festivities is not distinctively a part of it.
The guest of honor was President McKinley, who sat at n raised tnble on the
east side of the hall. On thc right of the
president sat Archlii-hcip Ireland of St.
Paul. Others at the table were Secretary
t'nge, Attorney Oneral Griggs, Postmaster Oeneral Smith, Secretary Hay, other
members of Uie president, party and officers of lhe Marquette club. Thero were
no e.|>ecial decorations at the banquet, n
great mass of meet in front of the presi-
dent being the only display.
it was beyond the appointed time when
President VVlckersham, after the remnants nl the banquet hail been removed,
i'iillc-el the gathering tu order and introduced Additon Bollard, an old settler of
Chicago, who gave a humorous description of Chicago in early days, in speaking
of the sentiment of old Chicago.
lie was followed by Archbishop Ireland,
who spoke of "The American Republic."
The archbishop was given an ovation as
he rose, and his speech was an eloquent
tribute: to American manhood and to the
lepublic, whieh he declared to be "the
I best form of organized democracy revealed iu humanity's history."
Thc archbishop's closing words were:
"And whatever we do, whatever plans wo
form, whatever line of action we adopt,
let us Ih- mindful of one thing—the Amcri-
cdii spirit is the enemy of nil those of humanity who by turning liberty into license, endanger democracy, or who, in
striving lo repress license, bring in measures that are Incompatible with a free
government. Whatever might lie thc apparent and temporary gain—the harm
done is unspeakable; liberty would lie
driven from the country. The American
republic—she live-s, and liberty lives with
her. The (lag of thc American republic
means liberty. With anxious eye and
throbbing heart wc watch today the journeying of thc ling of America toward dis-
tint Isles; wc pray for its safety nnd its
lienor; we proclaim that in A-ia as in
America it meant liberty and nil liberty
brings with it. Some say it menns in
A«ia the repression of liberty, (lod forbid.
Jl means in Asia the institution of civil
order, so that America, to whom the fates
have- decreed the unsought duty of main
taining oider in those islands, may see
and know who are lhe people of thc Pnil-
ippines, who there hnve the right to speak
for lhe people, what the people desire and
for what the people nre fitted. Civil order
and ii must lie restmed; the flag of
America may lie trusted to be to the Fili-
pin.H the bnrliincer and guardian of liberty and the rights of the people. Thc
American republic—she will Jive, and
with her liberty will live.-'

Does Your
Baking Powder
Prof. Geo. F. Barker, M. D., University of Penn.: "All
the constituents ot" alum remain (from alum baking powders) in
the bread, and the alum itself is reproduced to all intents and
purposes when the bread is dissolved by the gastric juice in the
process of digestion.   I regard the use oi' alum as highly iniurious."
Dr. Alonzo Clark: "A substance (alum) which can derange the stomach should not be tolerated in baking powder."
Prof. W. G. Tucker, New York State Chemist: " I believe
it (alum) to be decidedly injurious when used as a constituent of
food articles."
Prof. ... W. Johnson, Vale College: "I regard their
(alum and soluble alumina salts; introduction into baking powders as most dangerous to health."
In view of such testimony as this,
every care must be exercised by
the housewife to exclude the over
and over condemned cheap, alum
baking   powders   from   the   food.

This world is full ol troubles and
the mine managers have their share
ot them th-si* day**; trying to explain
to the stockholders why they are to
get no dividend! for this seasons work:
trying to make miners undeistand
that $3. per day is more than $3 50
per day and, last but not least trying
to convince shareholders in their
mines thnt they ore making nioii<*y by
being money out of pocket.
this reason   tbeyhavp  concluded,   at]
the Liberal-Conservative   Convention
he Id last week in   New   Westminster,
to endorse the proposal of putting up a
atraight party ticket in the next provincial ejection.   They claim  that by
a division on party lines tho government of tho provinco   will''bo   better
administered than under   the  present
system of Ins and   Outi*.    They   are
evidently overlooking the   fact   that
a candidate roust have much more   to
recommend hiia than the simple   fact
that he may be a  Conservative.    The
avarage Conservative in this section of
B. C. at  least,   does   not   feel   very
strongly the party tics.   This is true
as well regarding the rank and   file of
the liberal parly.    Voters hern   are,
we are glad to know, thoroughly Independent,   nnd     the    candidate   who
secures their votes   must   bo   a   man
prepared to ivprcsent his constituency
Independent of nny party.   The introduction  cf  Federal party   lines   into
loctil   elections   is    as   much    to   be
regretted as wonld be the dragging  in
of religious questions or nn attempt to
draw a color line.    Tho voters of this
constituency know iheir man and the
