becuuse our production of ore is in excess of   home   demand,   and  that  the

Among the papera of the late Grant
Allen was found ao article on ''The
British Aristocracy." It is probable that
he did r.nt c*re to place himself before
the English reading pnblic in the position of entire frankness which he had
assumed while writing thi* article, and
that consequently it was held until after
his death for publication. It waa
secured through his son (or The Cosmopolitan and appears in the April number.
Certainly no Englishman has ever ao
handled the subject without gloves aa
Giant Allen, and ao one waa better
equipped to do the subject justice.

the prefect and begged him to withdraw
or conceal the troops in the city. In
view of the negotiations the prefect consented to conceal the troops, the councillors promising to influence the strikers to
cease further disorders. The striking dock
laborers have informed the mayor that the
arbitration proposals have heen accepted
and the assembly of engineers has uutnor-
ized Mayor Flissicres to act as intermediary between them und their employes.

St. Petersburg, March 24.—It is understood and generally believed iu diplomatic circles tliat the Kusso Chinese
agreement now being considered differs
. ,.n.-iderubly from the original draft,
iiioiigh the precise differences ure not obtainable. ltu__si.ui statesmen reiterate: emphatically that Russia does not intend to
assume a protectorate over Manchuria.
Time In Growing Short.
Washington, March 24.—The question
of Chinese indemnities has given way
lor the moment to the more pressing issue
over the consummution of the Ku-.-i.i-
lliiiiu agreement, relating to Manchuria.
The latter subject has reached a decisive
stage, as only three days remain in which
China can confirm or reject the agreement.
t'p to the present time, neither the state
iu-p.iriiiii'iit nor the Chinese minister has
received any report that China has rejected the treuty.
There nat orally is much anxiety in official and diplomatic circles as to the outcome, the active part taken by the various
powers and the threatening attitude of
Japan giving unusual importance to the
conclusions to be reached within the next
few- duys. The Chinese minister today hud
u conference with Seeretury Hay, the Man-
churian question being the chief question
of discussion. The minister brought no
definite information, however, as to what
has lieen done on the agreement.
So far aa the United Stutes is concerned,
it seems likely thut the last word has been
spoken, and there is not expected to be
any decisive move or protest 'beyond what
already hns heen given. At the same time
it is appreciated that thc United States
has large commercial interests in Mun-
chiiri'- which can not but be affected if
China's authority there is practically
transferred to liiissia.

Severe Storm In Florida.
Pensacola, Fla., March 24.—Ureal damage was done by a severe southwest tornado, the winds raging from 48,to 54
miles an hour. Tlie Kussian hark Leitte
was driven against the west side of Com-
mundencia wharf with such violence that
all three masts of the bark snapped off,
leaving her rigging hi a mangled mass.
Every vessel in the hay dragged anchor
and the Norwegian Toly was being fast
driven-lashore when she put on steam and
pulled out into the stream again. The
schooner Irene and two lighters loaded
with lumber were driven ashore at the
eity front. A small schooner capsized,
several lighters loaded with lumber sunk
and the beach is strewn with the wreckage of small boats and drift timber. There
was an unusually high sea, the water lieing nearly level .with the wharves and nil
morning vessels were tugging, tossing und
pulling at their anchors amid the tangled
mass of wreckage. There was no damage
of consequence ashore and so far us known
there wus no loss of life.
Reduce   Vrniy  of  Philippine*.
New York, March 25.—A special from
Washington gays: Advices from the
Philippines are go encouraging for peace
that the war department is considering
the advisability of reducing the garrisons
in the archipelago. The reorgunized army
will be recruited to the full strength of
100,000 men, but it ia believed thut future
requirements will not compel the administration to maintain this maximum.
About 30,000 regulars will be entitled to
their discharges in the current year. It is
proposed to let these soldiers return to
their homes nnd to not fill their places.
Thus the army can bc reduced to 70,000
men in a perfectly natural way without
interfering with its discipline or effectiveness.

The Flag Hill mine will soon ship its
The Republic mill Is slowly securing
contracts for treating Republic ore.
The Quilp has shipped to the Qranby
smelter to date 194.3 tons of ore, having
a gross value of approximately $6254.
George L. Hedges hns Just arrived
from Wauconda and stutes that the
small test mill plant sent out by the
Rossmnn company was tried with most
flattering results.
Some fine specimens of ore from the
Princess Maud mine hnve been taken
from the face of the north drift, nnd It
is now coming In acrosB the ledge like
the ribs of a man's body.
In the Quilp mine the station on tho
No. 4 level Is ull cut out and has only
one set more ot' timbers to be put iu
to finish It. The diamond drill ls boring away toward the vein.
The California Is still looking well.
All the ore that Is being taken out Is
from nbove the 100 foot level. The
ledge hns been drifted upon at thnt level for 70 feet in one direction and 100
in another.
At the Butte & Boston the head of
the upraise Is 140 feet from the surface
and there are two streaks of ore ln
sight—ono of them eight and the other
twelve Inches wide, averaging $35 in
gold and two ounces silver per ton.
Peter McCormlck has had some big
returns from samples from the Phil
Sheridan, ln Sheridan camp. Four
samples were assayed with the following results: $134.60. $287.56, $455.34,
and $157.44. Samples from the footwall
gave $5.80.
The talk abolt railroad communication between the Boundary district nnd
Republic, and the assured completion
of such a line within the year, has created more than ordinary interest in
mines in the region lying on both sides
of Curlew lake.
The Hutte & Iloston orcshoot that was
found in thc old shaft has been found in
the raise that was being made to connect the lower workings of the mine with
it. Thc ore body is .about three feet wide.
A grab sample from several buckets was
taken and the nssayer's certificate showed
that it curried 30 ounces of silver nnd
nine and a hulf ounces in gold, having a
total vnlue of $217,118. It will tnke some
time to determine the length of the ore-
shoot, but there is no doubt about the
value of the ore. Thc reason thut it was
not encountered in the drift on the 260
foot level was because it dips to the south.
When the drift has been extended a short
distance fnrther it will undoubtedly encounter the shoot.

and party havo recently picked up several big nuggets, the largest being $43.
Some think that the head of Trail creek
will produce $15,000 this year. Every
miner on the creek ls wearing a broad
smile and Is spending money freely.
The Anaconda, on Red Top Mountain, near Colville, Wash., shows a
good vein of galena ore of a very high
grade. An average across flve feet
of the ledge at a depth of 25 feet gives
nearly 60 per cent of lead and over 22
ounceH of silver. The ore Is easily
handled by a crude smelting process
and will eventunlly be treated at the
mine in that way.
Reports have just reached Loomls
that an Important strike has been made
In the Dull"frog tunnel. W. B. Rellly,
who brought tbe news In, stated that
when he was at the mine the miners
had just broken Into a body of excellent
looking quartz, which had every appearance of being a large vein and carrying good vnlues. This .Is thought to
be the Phantom voln, - the objective
point of the tunnel.
The United States Marble company
has become a dividend payer. The first
monthly dividend of a quarter cent per
share will be distributed to stockholders March 15. The company is incorporated for 1,600.000 shares and the
dividend will consequently be $3,750.
The company Is a Spokane corporation
owning 18 claims of marble, onyx and
slate In Stevens county, Wash., about
eight miles weBt of Valley.
The Leslie group of 10 claims lies at
the head of St. Regis river, In Montana,
just across the Idaho line, the property
having a magnificent waterpower and
an abundance of timber. The Leslie
hns been developed systematically, and
with each foot of work showed a good
degree of Improvement, until the strike
in the lower tunnel furnished a genuine
surprise to stockholders and the public
as well, copper values being substituted
by nearly exclusive stiver and lead values.
At Orangevllle, Idaho, tho Indications
for an active mining season become
more apparent every day, not only In
the expressed Intention of those operating In the county, but supplies are being contracted for and pack trains
laoded for distant camps, and there Is
quite a movement on the part of prospectors, many of whom nre striking out
for the different districts ln which they
are Interested: James P. Turner has
been pushing work all winter on his big
placer proposition on Newsome creek.
He has thnt property ln excellent shnpn
for a big run the coming season.
Word has heen received by one of tho
stockholders In the Klondike mine,
near Pierce City, Idaho, that A strike of
considerable importance hns been made
on the mine. Assays have been made
of the ore nnd It runs n little over $1000
to the ton ln gold. The Klondike property Is owned by Spokane and Walla
Walla parties and has just been taken
over by the Klondike Mining k Milling
company from the Oro Fino Quartz
Mining & Milling company nt a handsome consideration, which has not been
made public.
J. D. Boyer. superintendent of the
Oold Point Mining company's properties In the Red River district, has l*>ft
for Portlnnd, where he will consult
with the ofllcers of ihe company abont
the erection of a' mill nnd reduction
works on the property this summer.
Mr. Boyer believes that the company
has a great property, ih the Copper
King, with Its large ore body, and the
high values shown, and he has no
doubt but thnt the company will conclude that the experimental stage of
development has been passed and the
time arrived for the erection, of a mill
and thc working of the mine on a largo

The latest development of the refinery question is that a syndicate of capitalists, said to have their headquarters
In Montreal, now have an expert mining and reduction man ln the Kootenays looking over the field with a view
to reporting on the prospects for the
successful operation of a refinery.
The Cooper Wonder group of mining
claims situated on Sophie mountain,
about 10 miles from RosBlnnd, has been
bonded to J. M. Palmer, a mining man
of Spokane, who ls now negotiating
with eastern parties for the purchase
of the property. The price of the bond
Is $100,000 and calls for continuous
work for the six months which the bond
runs. The group consists of seven
claims and a fraction and Is situated
near the famous Violet mines owned by
the British Columbia company.
A. B. W. Hodges, superintendent of
the Granby smelter at Grand Forks, arrived at Rossland recently on his return from a visit of inspection to the
various copper smelting plants In the
western states and a trip to New York
and Chicago. He announced that the"
contract for the supply of the two additional furnaces with a joint minimum
capacity of 600 tons per day and the
two converters, capable of treating 100
tons of matte dally, had been awarded
to the Gates Iron Works of Chicago,
the same firm that furnished the original plant. This will give the Granby
smelter a total capacity of 1200 tons
per day. The contract calls for the delivery of the plant within 90 days and
It will be In operation by September 1.
That part of East Kootenay lying

inhabitants were alseep Sunday morning and reduced 11 buildings, stores
and residences to ashes. The conflagration was extraordinary ln character
and ln its origin.      *
The village Is ln a valley along the
line of the Jersey Central railroad. An
immense freight train was coming east
at 6: 30 a. m. It was composed of a
string of Coal cars and 18 tank cars.
High above the village the track of the
railroad run along the side ot a mountain. They descend as they approach
the village, but even at the station are
considerably above the main street,
which runs up to the depot at a steep
A few miles west of the village, while
coming down the Incline around the
mountain, the train parted. The engineer on the forward end pulled open
the throttle ot the engine and tried to
race away from the section, which web
Increasing its speed every secAd. He
managed to keep clear of the racing
cars until he got opposite the depot at
Glengarden, when the second ..section
smashed into the first. The first section, composed of coal cars, was going
at a high rate of speed and none of Us
cars were jolted off the track. The forward car, one of the oil tanks of the
railway section, was hurled sidewlse
across the track and the tank cars behind were piled upon top of It In every
way. The first crash caused the oil ln
one of the tanks to explode and ignite
and the terrific heat caused the other
cars to explode, one after the other.
The incline running from the depot to
the main street acted as a sluice for the
burning oil and it poured into the chief
thoroughfare of the village, setting Are
to everything lt touched. Houses,
fences, trees, shrubbery and barns were
reduced to ashes in an incredibly short
Villagers awakened by the explosion
rushed from the oncoming flood of blazing oil, carrying children ln their arms.
Some risked their lives to free horses,
cows and dogs in outbuildings, but other unf6rtunate animals could not be
reached ln time and were burned.
Within flve minutes after the first ex-
plesion the flowing river of oil had
reached Masonic temple In the heart of
the village and 10 minutes later that
structure was enveloped ln flames.
Then building after building ignited
after the oil reached them, and within
half an hour the area of 400 fent square
wns a mass of flame. From the wrecked cars the oil also flowed down the incline of the railroad track, making a
long line of fire that destroyed the ties
and bent and twisted rails. Loss, $85,-

A. PttsJ-fctius and Popular San Francisco
Among the institutions identified
with the growth and development ot
San Francisco Heald's business college holds a conspicuous place. Both
as a business enterprise and an educational institution it has been evei
since Its organization, nearly forty
years ago, extremely popular and eminently successful. It is ln the class
of those solid and substantial Institutions In which a city takes pride,
Citizens point to it as one of the old
reliable and thoroughly progressive
establishments, an institution with a
definite purpose and an unquestioned
In connection with commercial
education the name of Heald's is a
household word on the Pacific coast
and throtiRhout the country at large.
In Its own field of effort It is as widely
known as Stanford or Berkely, for lt
enrollB students from the four quarters of the globe. In 1899 every
county In California but four had
students In Heald's Business College.
The four not repiHsenteti were Del
Norte, Lassen. Orange and Ventura.
The register of the college shows that
in 1900 students were enrolled from
the following states and territories
outside of California; In many cases
there were several representatives
from each: Nevada, Iowa, Washington, Oregon, Montana, Colorado, Utah,
Idaho, Arizona. Kansas, Missouri,
Pennsylvania, New Jersy, Vermont,
Virginia and New Mexico. In 1900
students came directly to the school
from Mexico, Canada, Japan, the
Hawaiian Islands, Yukon territory,
Siberia and Central America. Enrollments were also made from England
and Sweden.
Its large oody or alumni constitute a most formidable promoting
force, and the steady growth of the
college can be attributed largely to
the commending voice of those thousands of graduate!, who know whereof
they speak.
For full information write to ths
college for the SO-page catalogue and

So don't turu up yonr lovely nose
Bui spinschat with me,
"I do not carrot all to wed,
So go, sir, if you please;"
The modest onion meekly said
"And lettuce pray, have pease!
•io, think you have never seen
Myself, or suielled my sigh;
Too long a maiden hsve I been
For favors in yonr   rye?"
•'Ah! spare a cuss!" the tuber prsyed;
My cherrysbed bride you'll lie;   -
You are my only weeping maid
That'a current now wiih mel"
And aa the wily tuber spoke
He caught her by surprise,
And giving her an artichoke,
Devoured ber with bis eyes.
—Joseph Meehan, from Argonaut.

A witness before the Chineae
Commission now in session at the
Coast, sprung a conundrum upon the
Commissioners, which has , nol; been
answered yet, In answering a question
as to tho effect upon the Province of
the Chinese sending out of the Province, to China, for goods instead of
purcbaaiug them here, the witness
answered in return: ..."What is the
difference in its i fleet on British
Columbia between a Chinaman buying
bis goods io China and a white working man buying his goods in the East?
This is a qui ftion that tboae eppoaed
to Chinamen and tbeir ways should
ponder over.

Report, froip reliable sources, has it
that the 0. P. R. and 6. N. R. have
come to an agreement respecting the
proposed road into the States from the
Crows Nest coal fieias. Such being
the case Jim Hill, the galvanized
Yankee of Canadian . birth and the
bugaboo man of the Kootenays, can
sit down and crack jokes with
O'Shauglmessy, the galvanized Canuck
of American birlh, who has been lately-
waving the flag and giving Canadians
lessons in patriotism. Both of these
gentlemen are shrewd, smooth grafters
and when they are working together
it is time for both the Provincial and
Dominion governments to put an
extra guard with machine guns over
their money chests.
At Ottawa the  question   is being
debated in Parliament as to the ad vis
ability of expending public money to
help aetters from the older provinces
to secure homes in tbe Northwest.
When we sre psying sgents in
Europe aod spending public money in
an endeavor to secure immigration for
this country, it seems the height tf
folly Snd bad state smanship to allow
any portion ef our young peop'e to
seek homes in the Republic to our

the part of our government would
secure them as settlers for our Northwest One of our young people kept

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ of June 1893. in order to bold ssid cluim
running full blast in this camp with a ' ""der the provixions of the Mineral Act
likelihood of others starting up,
The Sandon Paystreak has figure-]
ont that the proposed bounty on pig
lead wonld, if tbe production remained
as waa in 1900, pay for a refinery in
tbe five years and leave tbe builders a
profit of $5000. But the proposition
is not to give a straight bounty of |5 a
ton for flve years but to hsve a sliding
scale dissppearing in five years. The
initial oust of building and equiping a
refinery ia only one of several large
items of expense. The locking up of
a large amount of capital in the purchase of their raw material must also
be considered. The Provin je bas in
the taking up of the refinery scheme
a ohance for an excellent investment,
whether tbe   Dominion  Ooveromeut
John Houston is forcing the Legislature into a discussion of government
ownership oi railways by bis resolution
urging the building of the Crows
Nest .Southern as a government work.
The task of a Finance Minister is
strewir with thorns. Everybody
kicks if he bu not at his command
plenty of money to spend, and then
they kick when he tries to raise
the money they clamor for.
It has now been publicly announced,
although the fact wu apparent to all
who were not blindfolded with pred-
udici'., that the 0. P. K. wen uot
actuated so entirely by patriotic
motives in tbeir antagonism to thu
Grows Neat Southern charter as it
professed to be. The 0. N, a Com-
pany hare offered tuetn something to
withdraw their opposition and the
railway company has taken it aud
dropped tbeir affection tor the welfare
being the amount reanired to bold the
mini.. for the year ending Juue 24th 1000.
And if within ninety daya from the dute
of Ibis notice you fail or reluse toeon-
Iritiule your proportion of mich 'expenditure together with all rosls of
silverlisieg, your interest in said claim
will tn'i.oiiii' the property of the undersigned under Section 4 of An Actio
