Arlington Mine
The Ailington mine, which is situated
up Springer creek and about six miles
from Slocan City, is proving itself to be
one of the bonanza properties of the
Slocan. At present it is woiking in full
blast, giving employment to over 1)0
men, The boarding-house has been put
into ftistclsss shape, a good ofl'we building is being erected and there is building
an ore-shute with a capacity oi 2o0 tons,
so that within a few days the Arlington
will be fully prepared for the approaching
winter.
The Arlington vein is a fissure lying in
the granite formation, with a strike
noitheast and southwest, dipping to the
south aud varying in widih from five to
sixteen feet in width. The character of
the ore is dry, carrying sulphurets, wire
and native silver. It carries little lead
but is very rich in silver, averaging over
200 ounces and even the talc on the
footwall is good shipping material. So
far this year there has been sent out to
the smelter for treatment some 040 tons
o( rich ore.

Toronto,   Oct.   23.—Letters   re-
ceivedjhere yesterday  from  officers
of the lirst Canadian  contingent go
to show   that  the departure of tha
regiment  from  South  Africa   was
preceded by a regretable  misunderstanding, owing to_Col.   Otter   assuming the responsibility of intimating to Lord Roberts that the  whole
force was willing to remain till  the
end of the war   without  consulting
the regiment,   which  was at   that
time broken   up  in   small   detachments   and   stationed   at   various
points.
When the men learned of Otter's
action in pledging them   to  remain
without their knowledge they  were
angry and stated  that they  would
have willingly consented to remain
had they been asked,   but objected
to Col. Otter giving a   promise  off
hand.    So strong was  the  feeling
that eventually all the men who had
volunteered    were   ordered   home.
The remainder,  consisting of   the
permanent corps, were grouped  together and  now form   a  company
which remains under Col. Otter.

Vancouver, B.  C,  Oct.  23.—A
special from Agassiz,  B. C,   says
that two hundred Indians are starving at   Pemberton   Meadows,   150
miles north of Agassiz.    An Indian
rider brought the news  today  that
fifty Indian families are  dying  and
that it is doubtful if supplies can be
sent to them quick enough to  save
their lives.    They have caught no
salmon    this season,  their potato
crop has failed and their stock  has
been drowned by  the floods.    Recent heavy rains have caused the
Harrison river to overflow its banks
and the whole country is said to be
flooded.    Conditions are said to be
worse now than  during the  disastrous floods of 1894, when  the dis-
trie! was under  six feet of water.
Supplies are being rushed from Van.
couver to the starving Indians.

Toronto,   Oct.  22.—Sir  Wilfrid
Laurier's emphatic denial of H. H.
Cook's statement in regard   to  the
offer made him of a senatorship on
receipt of $10,000 is  likely   to   be
followed by a decidedly 'interesting
development.    Mr.   Cook  says  his
statement with reference to the offer
of a senatorship was true   in   every
particular.    He said he was careful
not to make his charge without being able to support it by facts.
In connection   with  the  question
of   trafficking   in   senatorships,   a

Washington, Oct. 23,— The president has issued the following proclamation:
"In the fullness of years and honors, John^Sherman, lately secretary
of state, has passed away.
"Few among'our citizens have
risen to greater or more deserved
eminence in the national councils
than he. The story of his public
life and services is*as it were the
history of the country for half a
century.
"In the congress  of the   United
States he ranked] among  the  foremost in the house and later  in   the
senate.    He was twice a member of
the executive cabinet, first as secretary of the treasury and  afterwards
as secretary of state.     Whether  in
debate during the dark hours of our
civil war, orjas the^director of the
coimtryVfinances during the period
of rehabilitation, or a trusted counselor in framing  the   nation's  laws
for over 40 years, or as   the   ex o-
nent of its foreign policy,    ,s course
was ever marked by devotion to the
best interests  of his   beloved  land
and by able  and  conscientious   efforts to uphold its dignity and  honor.    His countrymen will   long  revere his memoryjand see  in him a
type of patriotism,  the   uprightness
and the zeal  that  go   to  moulding
and strengthening a nation.
"In fitting expression of the
sense of bereavement that afflicts
the republic J direct that on the day
of the funeral the executive offices
of the United States display the national flag at half mast and that the
representatives in foreign'countries
shall pay in like manner appropriate
respect for the illustrious dead for
10 days "
Nelson, B. C. Oct. 23.—[Special]
Three years imprisonment was the
sentence   imposed    on    Wm.   R.
Hocking,   ol   Cranbrook,  charged
with bigamy.    Hocking  was married  at Salt Lake, Utah, in   1895.
They  afterward separated, and in
1898, he received a Salt Lake paper
in  which  was  advertised  the fact
that he liail been   made the defendant in  a suit  for divorce instituted •
hv Winnie,, Hocking, and that if no I
counter plea was entered within 60
days  the decree  would be granted
by default.
Hocking asserted that he took no
action  and thought   the matter of
his lit rt  marriage was disposed of.
Later, in 1899, he  mel  Miss Montgomery and married her.    A dam-   ...csieu in a down-townho
aging piece of evidence was given   Mather, who is accused by
by the second  wife who testified at   wholesale   jewelers   and „

In reply to the query as to whether he  had anything  to say before
sentence was passed Hocking made
the  neatest  speech  ever  delivered
from the prisoner's box in the court
house.    He urged his honor fo deal
leniently   wirh    him,     maintaining
strenuously    that   he   was   wholly
guiltless  of any intention  to break
the law  or  wrong the woman who
had become his wife at Cranbrook.
j He was anxious  to  have an opportunity   to   see   Miss   Montgomery
before being  taken   to the penitentiary   in  order to  turn   over what
money and  valuables   he possessed
to her  and   would  also,   if the law
permitted, marry her at the earliest
possible   moment in   order that her
unborn child might have a name.
Hocking's remarks were neatly
worded and created a marked impression. The sentence of three
years was then passed and the case
closed.

Agree to Maintain   China's
Territorial Integrity.
TERMS OF THE ALLIANCE
to
[want the Ports   Kept   Open
the Peoples   of  All
Countries.
London, Oct. 20.- -Germany and
lEngland have formed an alliance to
(maintain the territorial integrity of
thins and to keep the ports open.
■The terms of this important agree-
Imeni of lhe two countries, which
(was arrived at between Lord Salis-
|bliry and Count von Hatsfeldt, Ger.
Jinan ambassador to England, are
(officially given out as follows:
'The German government   and
Jrler British Majesty's   government,
(being desirous to maintain their  interests in China and their  right un-
(der existing treaties,   have agreed
Lo observe the   following  principles
(regarding a mutual policy in China:
'Firstly- It is a matter of joint
permanent    international    interest
that the ports on the rivers of China
Should   remain   free   and  open   to
trade and to every other  ligitimate
jtorm of economic activity   for   the
peoples of all countries without distinction, and the Iwo  governments
kgree on their  part  to  uphold  the
ame for all  Chinese   territory,   as
tar as tliey  can  exercise   their   in-
luence.
'Secondly — Both governments
rill not, on their part, make use of
lhe present complications to obtain
for themselves any territorial ad-
Ivaniage^in the Ch'nese dominion,
land will direct their policy towards
■maintaining, undiminished, the ter-
Iritorial condition of the Chinese empire,
"Thirdly—In case of another
[power making use of the complications in China, in order to obtain
under anv form whatever such territorial advantages, the two con-
I tract ing parties reserve to them-
IMlves the right to come to a preliminary understanding regarding
jthe eventual step to be taken for
[the protection of their own interests
fin China."
The I nltrd Male*.
Washington, Oct. 20. — The
' United States will closely adhere to
'the principles contained in this
agreement, and if Russia can be
brought to accept its terms as binding upon herself, there can be no
doubt, according to the official view
i here, that a substantial movement
will have been achieved toward a
final settlement of the Chinese
trouble.
good,"  because  mention  of that
particular window is not made in
the editorial column, and another
man who does not advertise just
wants you  to make a note of the
fact that he   has   moved to a new
place of business,  and the church
entertainments,    societies,     clubs,
picnics, parties, dances and the like
that want free notices,  are something awful.    Of course, we are not
unmindful of the fact that there is a
reward in the hereafter, for all this,
but a fellow is expected to pay a
few bills here below.    In nine cases
out of   ten,   the   various   schemes
above mentioned are money making
propositions   for   somebody     and
they should payfor their advertising
just as the manager of the theatre
pays   for   his.    Sometimes   people
bring   "complimentary"   tickets in
consideration for which they want a
half  column   write-up   before the
show and one of equal length after
it.   We don't want tickets, so don't
bring   any.    We want   cash.     If,
when  Saturday   night comer,  we
tried  to   work off on the  printers
part cash and the balance in tickets
to a pie social,  the typographical
union  would justly   support   their
objections.
A newspaper has space for sale,
just as a merchant has merchandise
for sale, and there is no more sense
in asking a paper to print a three
or four inch "free" notice for a
meeting than there is in asking a
livery man to lend you a hack and
driver to take you there. Every
line of type in a newspaper represents cash paid to printers. Don't
forget that

"A horrib'. nurder and suicide

About one o'clock two shots were

was paid to them, however, until

of Harry Bettis and Daisy Blyden-

the deed was done was clenched in

Tbe young couple attended chu-ch

IN NEW YORK JAIL
Rossland Defaulter Caught-
WIII be Extradited
THE SON 0F2A MILLIONAIRE
Fred Yuengllng, Defaulter. Arrested at the Instance of Lion
Brewing Co. Rossland
Rossland, B, C, October 22.-—
Fred Yuengling, who left several
mementos in Rossland when he
hurriedly departed as manager of
the brewery, has been brought up
with a sharp turn. He will be extradited and returned to British
Columbia on the charge of embezzlement. Yuengling went it thick
and fast while here, and when he
departed^he borrowed right and
lelt and jjissuedjehecks which have
been framed. Of him the New
Vork World says:
"One more checker has been
added to Fred Vuengling's already
checkered career. Hero of the
tenderloin and son of the millionaire
brewer, he nevertheless spent last
night in Ludlow street jail. He was
locked up there yesterday morning
accused of embezzling $387 in July
of last year. His accusers are the
Lion Brewing company, of Rossland, British Columbia.
"The young man bobbed up in
New Vork a week ago after four
years absence from town. An irate
father was to blame for his sudden
departure, but reports reached the
tenderloin that the young spendthrift was settling down in Biitish
Columbia and doing a fine business
there. But the reports were not
quite accurate, for Deputy Marshall
Bernhard had a warrant in his pocket for the young man's arrest a
week ago, and he was looking high
and low for him.
"Yuengling avoided the tenderloin and that was where Bernhard
naturally sought him. But he
caught him yesterday morning in
New street just after he walked out
of the Hoffman House cafe.
"'Is this Frederick D. Yueng-
lin?' asked Bernhard.
" 'Yes.' replied Yuengling, all
unsuspecting.    'Why  do you ask?'
" 'Vou are my prisoner,' was
Bernhard's answer.
"A few minutes later Bernhard
had his man before United States
Commissioner Alexander in the
federal building.
" 'What have you to say?' asked
Commissioner Alexander of Yuengling.
" 'Not one word,' replied the
young man.
" 'I request,' said acting Cousel-
General C. Give Bayley, of Great
Britain, 'that the prisoner be held
till extradition papers can be made
out. Then we can arrange for the
return of the prisoner to British
Columbia.'
"The commissioner granted the
request and committed the millionaire's son to Ludlow street jail to
await a hearing on October 22.
"A few years ago Yuengling was
one of the most widely known men
about town. His father owned one
of the biggest breweries in New
Vork, and his pocketbook was always open to his boy. So Yuengling went the pace. He aspired to
be the best fellow in the tenderloin.
He was—while his father's money
flowed freely enough."

. New York, Oct. 22.—Lord Salisbury's diplomatic success in making
terms with Germany and intervening in the China negotiations without authority, silences all talk about
his retirement from the foreign office, says the Tribune's London correspondent. The most industrious
cabinet makers now admit that he
cannot be sparred from the oflice
and that he must be allowed to
hold it and the premiership as long
as possible. Lord Landsdowne is
now relegated by the rumormong-
ers to Dublin. Lord Balfour of
Burleigh is named for the war
oflice, and Mr. Richie for the admiralty. Mr. Wyndham and Mr.
Brodrick are promoted to the cabinet. Each day produces a new
combination from the friends of
ambitiou1' or restless statesmen.

its American and Knglish branches.

CANADIAN   COINAGE.
The government of Canada haa
secured permission from the Imperial
authorities to establish a branch mint
in Canada, for thn coining of Canadian
bullion. It is now up to the Canadian
authorities to secure or take permission to coin a Canadian gold oin.
Coining sovereigns in n country where
the decimal system of currency is in
use is rather ridiculous. A Canadian
coin should pass muster wherever a
sovereign would.

EXPENSIVE RED TAPE.
The   Victoria  civil  servants  seem
unable to do anything in   a hurry, no
matter   what   tbe     necessity.    Last
week   permission  was   wired   for by
Road   Inspector   Moore   to expend a
paltry one hundred   dollars   upon the
Galena Mines road.   This sum if used
before Saturday would do what double
the  amount   will not do to-day, and
such information   was   supplied   the
Department  of  Lands   and   Works,
but 98 yet (he   Department  bas not
been heard from or any of the telegrams
answered.  This being now a   government road, private parties (lo not feel
justified in repairing it   As a consequence the  delivery   of  the   Hewett
supplies is held up, in spite of the fact
that tbey have completed at tbeir own
expense a first-class wagon   road from
the   mine to the Oalena Mines road.
Nothing   haa   been   beard   by Mr.
Moore or by the officials at the Record
Office   regarding   the   Red Mountain
CIS*
road.   Each day's delay meant more
'** j ixpense when the road is finally begun,
if indeed it is begun at all thi* fall.
The Victoria cobweb crop mutt be
extra big this year and Sii verton has
been given £l;e rawile-dazzle.
All   three   of   the political parties
now in the field   in   this   Riding  are
composed of   three   classes   of  men.
The indifferent,   tho earnest, and the
bitter partisans.    The first is so bound
J up in himself   that   he is indifferent
how   his country   is governed or progresses; consequently   he  is not what
would   bc nailed  a good citizen.    The
second   class    is  composed   of   men
thoroughly   in   earnest   and  striving
according   to   their lights to improve
the condition of their country.  These
men, although   prhaps   differing   in
their   views, are good   citizens    and
patriots. The third, the bitter partisan,
it so   narrow   in his   views   that   ho
places party before country and is no
better and pei baps a  more dangerous
citizen than the first
