The coal mines in the province of
Sii.osi, China, have recently been carefully studied by a European expert.
Hisrepoit states that there is sufflcent
coal in this district alone to supply the
world at the present rate of consumption,
for several centuries. The province is
nn interior state, .nd begins about 100
miles north of Pekin, exteouiog north
aud south GOO miles and east and west
about 150. It is therefore not so large

Seaton Attacks His Relatives with
an Axe—Some of the Injured
May Recover.
Seattle, Dec. 9.—Wm. Seaton,
aged 22 years, formerly of Decatur,
III., attempted last night to exterminate an entire family of his relatives at South Park, nine miles
from Seattle. With an axe he
smashed in the heads of four people, leaving them for dead, then he
shot one man in the back and attempted to kill a deputy sheriff.
Before being captured Seaton was
shot twice, but not fatally by Deputy Sheriff Kelly.
The only one kilted outright was
Seaton's uncle, Daniel Richards.
Seaton smashed in the head of his
sister, Mrs. Roy Clarke, but her recovery is hoped for. The other two
victims were Mertle and Hazel Hop-
good, aged about 10 years, children
of a former husband of Mrs. Clarke.
The skulls of the little ones were
crushed and then the bodies were
thrown into a manger in the barn.
It was supposed they were dead,
but a later report from the county
hospital says that the skull of one
of the children had been raised and
there are hopes of recovery. The
other child will undoubtedly die.
A man named Kennedy, who got
it Seaton's way after the tragedy,
was shot in the back, but not seriously. Seaton fired three times at
Kelly before Kelly brought him
down with two shots which took ef
feet in the head and arm. Seaton
told the following story:
"I was disgusted with the actions
of my sister and after I had struck
her in the head with an axe I came
to the conclusion that. I • might as
well make a clean sw»e*p.-"I smashed
the skulls of the ehfltliVrt and then
threw their bodies tmq'flie manger.

Berlin, Dec. 9.—A very sensational event was developed yesterday during the trial of the rich banker, Sternberg, fdr art alleged offence
against morality. The states attorney declared that Criminal Commissioner Thiel had made a full confession to the exanining judge that
he took bribes from Luppa tor official reports and evidence against
Sternberg and that he had also admitted the truth of the statement to
Inspector Stierstader that Thiel hail
to bribe the inspector by offering
him a villa on Lake Geneva.
The states attorney went on to
point out that Thiel's confession implicated Dr. Weithauer, one of the
lawyers for the defendant, Theil
having accused him of receiving
purchased documents.
A motion was made by the states
attorney for an immediate search of
Dr. Werthauer's office, but the
court declined to grant it on the
ground that such a step would be
illegal, Luppa is an agent of
Sternberg's, through whom was
purchased false evidence. It i.s assumed that between five and six
million marks were expended in
this way. Luppa fled about a fortnight ago.

The Prince
May Race
Great Interest Is Being
Taken in the (Next
Yacht Race.
• New Vork, Dec. 9,—Yachtmen
have been discussing with great interest the possibility ofthe boat
building for the Prince of Wales taking-the place of thc Shamrock II,
as challenger for the Ametica's cup
in case the Royal Yacht club should
come off the victor in the trial races.
When the attention of Manager VV.
Butler Duncan, jr., was called to
the cable he said:
"1 have not considered such a
contingency. The cables relating
to the challenger have been of such
a speculative character I have paid
no attention to th'em. It really
makes no difference after all what
boat comes over after the cup, as it
cannot affect our activity in regard
to the defence.
"We are going to get out the
very best boat possible. No pains
or expense are to be spared to make
her the fastest thing afloat, and
when the time comes to race we
shall have the knowledge that nothing has been left undone to make
the defence a success,"
A Toronto coroner's jury in the
case of Mrs. Margaret Milne's

her death as a result of Hazelton's

for not properly caring for the
woman. Hazelton now awaits trial
on a charge of murder.

Annual M««ttn* of tbe Giant
The annual meeting of the stockholders of the Rossland Giant Mining company was held yesterday in
the offices of the company in Spokane. At the meeting the principal business was the election of
officers and trustees for the coming
year. The following officers were
President, A. D. Coplen; vice-
president, Dr. G. S. Allison; secretary-treasurer, D. S. Prescott; trustees, A. D. Coplen, M. S. Bentley,
Dr. G. S. Allison, D. S. Prescott
and S. K. Bentley.
The property is being worked
steadily with good results. No
definite line of work was laid out
for the year, that being left with the
trustees. It is their intention to
keep work going the same way as
at present for the time being.
"The ore we have been shipping
has netted us, after paying for shipping and treatment, $17 per ton,"
said Mr. Prescott. "We are now
working in the shaft, which is down
40 feet, and intend to continue shipping. M. E. Purcell, [the superintendent of the mine, has reported
that the ore is improving with every
foot the shaft is lowered, and that
the ore body is widening. We feel
very pleased with the present out-
look tor the mine and expect to
make a fine showing during the
oming year."

Chicago, Dec. 11.—The question of the constitutionality of the
Blaine extradition treaty, between
tireat Britain and the United States,
signed by representatives of the
two governments in i"';9, and
which, it is asserted, has never been
passed upon, is to be brought before the United States supremo
court in the cases of Fred Lee Rice,
Frank Rutledge and Thomas Jones,
who were arrested in Chicago last
June on the request of the Canadian
authorities, charged with being
fugitives from justice.
The specific ch-irges   again;t  tie
three   men   included   complicity in
several bank robberies   in   Toronto
and other Canadian  cities.      President McKinley issued a warrant  for
the requisition  of the   three  men,
but action was prevented by a   writ
of supersedeas,    issued  by  Judge
Kohlsaat of the the   United   States
district court, and   since  last  June
the men have  been   confined   in   a
county jail.    Next Wednesday attorneys representing  the  prisoners
and the British consul   will   appear
before the supreme court at   Washington, and bail for   the  prisoners
will be asked pending the  consideration of the Blaine treaty.
Should bail be refused the prisoners, they may remain in jail here for

Vancouver, B.   C,   Dec.   10.—
The mysterious death in this   city,
of a man  known   as   William T.
Wilson, and the subsequent investigation into its cause, has  brought
to light a strange story of sin and
of swift and   tragic  retribution  for I
a great wrong.     The man  whose
body now occupies a marble   slab
in the morgue has been identified as
William Boulton, scion of a well
known  English family.     To conceal his whereabouts from the  family he had deserted, he assumed  a
fictitious  name,  thinkirg that   his
identity   would   be   safely   hidden
under the name of Wilson.
When the man was found dead
there was at first no one to  identify him, except the women who was
known here  as   his  wife.   Today,
however,   several  witnesses swore
that his  name was   William  Boul-
ton.    Among the witnesses is  the
wife and other members of the family whom  Boulton  deserted.     The
Boultons   resided,    until    a     few
months ago, in England.    Then the
home was broken  up by  the  sudden departure of the husband,  who
fled   the   country  with   a  woman
other than his wife.    The  eloping
couple came   to   Vancouver some
time ago and  engaged  apartments
at a  prominent hotel.    They gave
the name of Wilson and  seemed  to
be ideally happy.
"Mf either gave a thought to the
deserted family in far-a-way England, it was certainly not a thought
of apprehension. The lovers believed firmly that Mrs. Wilson was
nursing her sorrows in loneliness,
where the guilty husband had
left her, thousands of miles away on
the other side oftthc*world.
But retribution found Boulton, if
not his companion, and in a manner sudden and terrible. Withont
a word of warning Mrs. Boulton
abruptly appeared on the scenejand
confronted lur guilty husband.
What passed between them in that
last interviews ill never be known,
unless Mrs. Boulton chooses to
tell, for a few moments later Boul-
ton sank to the ground a corpse.
The autopsy surgeon declared, after
a close examination of the body
and its organs, that death had resulted from fright and from no
other cause.
Another dramatic feature of
the case is that the husband of
the women who was known
here as Mrs. Wilson, accompanied Mrs. Boulton on her journey
across the ocean and across the
continent. The deserted wife ard
the deserted husband made common cause nnd together joined in
the search for the runaway.

The Rossland Record has suspended
publication. The Record waa a
bright, newsy paper, outspoken in its
views. Too much so, indeed, for its
own good, as its open hostility to the
Rossland Miners' Union was ita death
warrant, in most towns in Kootenay,
iu Rossland apparently as much as
other places, in order to succeed a
newspaper must be of the milk and
water variety. Nothing will down a
publication so much as to be guilty of
having views on any subject. We
give this as a synopsis of our own

grasping an opportunity for doing more
good than all the psalm-singing for

Some of oar exchanges are advocating the giving of a purse, out of
the public monies, of twenty thousand
dollars to Colonel Otter for bis services
ia South Africa. What has Colonel
Otter done any mure than the other
Canadians who volunteered for active
service that be should be entitled to
[dip his hand into the public purset
Nothing! He, like the balance,, has
done his duty as a soldier; nothing
more or nothing less, and we are
proud of him equally with the balance.
If Canada bas money to give, which
we trust she has for this purpose, let
it be given to those of her soldiers who
are in actual need of it. Make no
discriminations amongst her soldiers,
alt of whom are equal in the eyes oi
God, of the Law and of tbe people.
There was landed a, tew days ago a
Canadian soldier from South Africa, a
young man who at the call of his
Queen laid aside his business interests
•nd went out to fight, willing to lay
down his life in her cause if necessary.
In embarking he marched proudly
•board of the vessel with his head
erect In returning the other day, he
was led off the vessel by a comrade
and in a abort time, unless be has rich
relatives, he will become a public
charge. This man was shot stone-
blind while fighting bis country'*
battles and i.t is such as he wbo are
entitled to receive monies from the
public purse. And until such time
as such as he are amply provided for,
any one should be ashamed to aik that
public money be given to another able
to provide for himself.

The idea of a Silvsrton-Randon
tunnel has long been regarded as
feasible bjr many in the Slocan who
are familiar with the riohness of tbe
gronnd between the two towns. That
this ides hss been taken bold of by
some with capital enough to put their
plans into operation is now evident
from the advertisement published in
these columns by them through their
solicitors. A tunnel, such as the
company desiring a charter propose to
drive, would be abont five miles long
snd would pass through or in the
neighborhood of about a doaen producing mines snd scores of prospects
more or less valuable,
This is the fitlt proposition of the
kind that has ever oome ap in this
part of the   Provinoe.
