The Silverton I.iars' Club at one of
the numerous meetings held during tbn
week discussed, amongst other subjects,
the remarkable find made some years ago
iu this section by one of our old timers,
now one of Ihe lesser lights in the
society. He furnished the following
account of his find, lllustialing it with
uuineious maps which are now in tin
office of the club's secretary, wl ere they
may be examined by any member io
good standing. 'In the early eighties,
while making a voyage in a dugout to tbo
head waters of Ten Mile creek, it became
necessary to camp, a run ol red lish
having blocked navigation on the stream,

As ihere were but few married men at
II mt lime in the Slncai;, every roan
doing his o'vn eo.iking, the demand for
liter pads was limited and the outlook
was discouraging. Rut, I resolved to go
deeper on my find, hoping fur the best.

Sir Robert Hart's statement   recently made   that   the   trouble   in
China   is   only   just   commencing
seems unfortunately true.    The latest cable from English  correspondents on the spot state tbat the  empress dowager will never consent to
the  executions   demanded   by  the
powers and that   it  is  equally vain
to expect  any  moderations  in   the
forcible demands made by the allied
powers.    The Chinese court are reported   as   preparing   for    further
fight far inland to  the  province  of
Szechinen, where with  an   imperial
army of 14,000 men   they  will   bid

Dnal Leadership
Toronto, Nov. 13.—It   looks  as
though   the  announcement    ot Sir
Charles  Tupper's   retirement   from
the leadership of   the Conservative
party     is   somewhat     premature.
Hon. John   Haggart,   chairman  of
of the Ontario Conservative   union,
says that    no  official   communication   has been   received  from    Sir
Charles    and  the question of  discussing  his  successor is  therefore
premature.
He assumes that Sir Charles
Tupper would wait until he met his
supporters at Ottawa and submitted the question of retirement to
them before announcing his withdrawal.
In local  political   circles   it   has
been suggested that in the   present
emergency, a   dual   leadership   for
the dominion may prove  the  salvation of the Conservative  party  and
a precedent such  as   the  MacDon-
ald-Cartier combination is regarded
as satisfactory.   The names coupled
with that combination are those   of
Hon. T.   Casgrain   (French   Canadian) from Quebec, and R. I..   Bor

THE CARLISTS.
A member of the Carlist committee, now in Washington, says
the Carlist uprising]^reported so
extensively from Spain during the
last few days is not a Carlist uprising at all, but merely an outbreak of socialism and anarchy.
The gentleman has been a member
of the Carlist committee for the
last sixteen years and is booked
for a high place under the government in case Don Carlos succeeds
in overthrowing the present Spanish throne and setting himself up.
He says their are no Carlists in
in Southern Spain, where the present disturbance has chiefly taken
place. There are a lot of men
there who call themselves Carlists,
but they never have been recognized as such. They are merely disturbers of the peace and are against
all forms of government. The real
Carlist all dwell in Northern*Spain,
where they have a splendid organization and abundant arms and ammunition. Within the last twenty
months sixty thousand Mauser
rifles have been taken to northern
Spain by Carlists. These guns
were bought in Germany and paid
lor by Don Carlos himself, who
is an immensely wealthy man.
The real Carlist uprising will
not come before next spring, probably starting in Match. Don
Carlos promises his followers that
he will take the field then and lead
them. They, however, have little
faith in him and are now actively
trying to get him to renounce his
rights to the Spanish throne in fa-
vorjof his son, Don "Jaime, who is
in Russia and is a fighter. Carlos'
princess also favors this plan, believing her son better fitted than
his father to lead the revolt to a
successful conclusion.
The latest alleged Carlist uprisings have been by bands of
eighty or a hundred men, hut when
the genuine uprising starts next
spring the smallest army will consist of id,000 men, and that number can be put into the field at anytime in three days notice.

lait few days only a ftw slight
skirmishes have been reported. The
small Boer laagers west of here are
being driven about the country owing to the movements of Generals
Clements and French. The road to
Rustenburg is almost clear of Boers.
The prisoners, ofllcers and men,
who are now captured in this vicinity are being lodged in the bird
cage which the Boers formerly used
as a place of detention for captured
British officers. Because of slight
discomfort caused by the recent
rains the Boer captives complain
that the place is fit only fer cattle.

Between the Two C'ountrle*
New York, Nov. 9.—As a result
of the continuance in power of President McKinley and Sir Wilfrid
Laurier it is expected that another
attempt will shortly be made to
bring about a complete settlement
of the questions in dispute with
Canada. Officials of the administration say that the president and
Secretary Hay would be glad to
have the questions disposed of, but
it is felt here that Canada should
make the preliminary move looking
to their reconsideration. The Alaskan boundary line has been only
temporarily determined, but the
president would prefer that it be
finally and forever fixed,
Special Reciprocity Commissioner
Kasson is extremely anxious to negotiate a reciprocity treaty with
Great Britain relating to Canada,
because such a treaty will settle
many points affecting the products
of the two countries, and will be
mutually beneficial.
The fisheries question is also likely to be a source of trouble, and it
is deemed important that it should
be terminated in a manner satisfactory to both nations.
Officials of the navy are especially desirous that the two countries
shall determine the size of the naval
force each will maintain on the
great lakes. Several years ago
congress authorized the construction of a gunboat for the lakes, and
the board of construction prepared
the design for the vessel. Pending the modification of the Rush-
Bagot agreement of 1818, the president desired that the contract lor
the vessel be not awarded,
The Tegal Bebelllou
New York, Nov. 9,—The operations to crush the Tegal rebellion,
which are about to be begun and
prosecuted with extreme energy,
are to be of a thoroughly comprehensive character, the plan of campaign having been prepaied by
General McArthur last month after
■1 council of officers. The plan h as
received the unqualified approval
of the war department without
material modifications. It [involves
extensive naval co-operation, including all the regular warships of
the station as well as the numerous
gnu boats, purchased from the
Spanish, which are to be distiibut-
ed in flotillas, each with a larger
one as a flagship. Admiral Remey
is on tbe flagship Brooklyn and has
just returned Irom China to Manila
to assume person.il charge of the
operation afloat, which Admiral
KemplTin the Newark, already at
Cavite, has been mapping out in
conjunction with General McArthur.
The Chinese seem to have
studied out a very ingenious scheme
to make the foreign powers practically pay their own indemnitcs in
the shape of increased import duties. For ways that are dark and
for tricks that are vain the heathern
Chinee is still peculiar.
Tiirkii.il  Inloleranee
London Nov. 9.—Turkish intolerance went to the length on
Wednesday of forbidding Pere

college at Soutari. The prohibition

sp_.nl.ir,l» Don't Like II
Madrid, Nov. 9.—Newspapers
of all shades and opinions, express
regiet of the re-election of President McKinley. Their sympathies
with Mr. Bryan were as emphatic
as their satisfaction whenever it
was reported that Ihe I'nited States
was meeting with reverses and difl /
culties in the Phillippines. Several
of the papers declare that Mr. McKinley's triumph following the victory of imperialism In Great Brit-
eiii is a menace to weak nations.

To question them's a sin,
And stifle tbe holiest promptings
Of the God that speaks within.
Ye clog tbe soul of Nature
With your wretched Utile creeds;
Then bold up your bunds in  wonder,
At tbo dearth of noble deeds.
Ye pray for the gods lo Kjiide you,
Yet, when the (iod appears,
Ye'll have no gods but lhe old ones,
And pierce His side with   spears.
Ye boast ol your achievements,

'Til the gods look down in wond r
At the little sons of men.
Hurrah ! for the great Diana,

The Public Lands and Works
Department of this Province must be
in a sadly muddled state, or our
present minister of that branch of the
public service must be about a» big an
ass as ever haa eaten out of the public
crib.
Silverton    was    promised a   wagon
road to Rod   Mountain.    The   money
was appropriated by   our   Legislature
last session   and that brought it up to
the Department of Lands and   Works,
I whi.rn the matter died, apparently   for
the lack   of brain3 to direct   tho-expenditure of the money   appropriated.
A survey w^s supposed to   have   been
made of this road, but no information
on tlie subject can   be   obtained  from
the Department.
Premier Dunsmuir has been most
unfortunate in the selection of sonic of
his Cabinet Ministers.
