rr-1   Gossip   of The   Week.
On The Willnrd claim, on Alpha
Mountain near town, a fine shnwintr, of
lean ore has been made lately. A
short time ago work was started on this
property and a tunnel driven some 40
feel on the ledge. Considerable ore was
encountered, but it was mostly of a con-
■e.itratiug nature. In   Ihe  floor  of  this
ni.iii-l was a streak of clean ore and the
owners came to the conclusion that they
were runnin. over the top of.... nre shute
So to prove the truth of their theory they
aent down the mountain a short distance
nd proceeded lo .round-sluice off the
surface, so as to expose the ledge. Wilh
the rerult that they have been rewarded
v fio.linn tlie ledue and exposing a fine of clean ore, similar in character to
hat uf the Lone Star Group, which is in
die same neighborhood and by Home
tliou-lit to be the Mime ledge. Work
will be pushed on thia property and a
tunnel driven in on tho new find,
The strike situation has not assnmed
the    serious    proportions    that   some
predicted.   About one hall of t he miners
employed have   been  laid-off in  consequence of Ihe  Wakefield  and  Emily
Edith mines  virtually  shutting   down,
only caretakers being left at these p ro-
perties.   At the Vancouver Qroup  work
is progressing as usual and   a   full   force
employed.   The    Noond.iy    mine   has
been adding to its force and will continue
lo employ more miners at wto, can be- for them.   The starting np ol the
Wi'ilu, on Red Mountain, will  give   employment to i.   few extra mfn.     More
prospectors than usual are laking to the
hills and  few   more   idle   miners   than
urdinnry are visible on our  streets.   So
far only two of our mines have closed on
account of the eight hour law, all oilier*,
are  working   ns   usual    The   best   of
feeling prevails between the mine managements aod the miners, both believing
that each are acting within  their rights.
It is to h? hop -d that  their  differences
will speedily be adjusted snd that work
will be resumed shortly.

publiely announced their intention of
reducing the wages ol all mine workers
upon tl.e taking effect of the Eight Hour

f-i-th in such annonni --ni-in for attempting such are either tl.e result of
selfistiness or lack of sound reasoning
and shows unfair.less in an attempt to
arbitrarily establish a reduced seal** ol

Captured Americans Ar* Tortured—A
Number or Bodies Found Mutilated -
your... lufantry Will A. t -Rebels Attack from a White Flag.
New York, May 30.—A letter received
in Pateraon, N. J., from Alexander Oul-
ross, now in the Fourth infantry in the
Philippines, tells of the tortures inflicted
upon captured Americana by the Filipinos.
"Two of our men," says Culrosa, "str_y-
ed from camp yesterday and did not return. Today we found them in the woods.
Their foreheads were slashed in the form
of a cross, the skulls being split The
tongues and heart bad been cut out and
their legs hacked to pieces.
'"The boys of the Fourth infantry have
resolved to give no quarter hereafter, for
they have reached the conclusion that everyone else will soon reach—that the only
good Filipino is a dead Filipino. They can
not fight in the open, but steal on us at
night and pick on* our men. They seem
to be better shots at night than in tbe day
S-v-sre i.rut-ii.jr.
New York, May 30.—A special from
Washington says:
Information received here in private letters from officers serving in the Philippines
state the Filipinos show no respect to the
American dead. In one instance an officer
who was on the firing line says he was
shocked to see three bodies of American
soldiers who had bsen killed in an advance
and were brought to the American lines
badly mutilated. The ears of each of the
corpses had been removed, the noses cut
oft* and the hearts torn out.
Such mutilation disproves Aguinaldo'a
claim that the insurgents are conducting
a civilized warfare. The 'American troops
give the Filipino dead a decent burial and
provide every comfort and medical treatment possible for the wounded.
Morder of a Soldier.
6an Francisco, May 30.—The steamer
China, from Hong Kong via Honolulu,
brings news of the murder of an American
soldier named George Ryan near Malolos.
His frightfully mutilated body was found
on April 17. The body was lashed to a
raft floating in the river. The skull was
crushed and both arms had been cut off at
the elbow-
Ryan was the msn who in 1893, while
serving in the provisional army of Hawaii,
stole the crown jewels. He was sentenced
to a long term, but wns pardon, d last December. He stowed on a transport for
Manila, where he entered the ranks.
ll-s-d-r the White Fla*.
Manila, May 20.—11:25 a. m.—Captain
Tilley of the signal corps, with a detachment made up of other members of the
corps, landed at Becalante, on the Island
of Negros, to pick up snd -repair the cable.
Tbe natives had a white flag flying over
the cable house when the party landed,
'lhe latter, however, were no sooner on
shore than they were upon by the
natives. Tbey at once took to the water
and a number of them were picked up in
a boat but Captain Tilley and two native
men of the party are missing.
General Smith with a detachment of
troops has started on board a gunboat to
investigate the affair.
Isla-di-rs   Bow   to   the Rule   of the
"ManllaTMay 27.—President Laosm and
members of the cabinet of insurrectionisU
on the island of Negros have signed and
issued a proclamation fully accepting the
constitution prepared by General Smith's
commission, acting in conjunction with
themselves. The constitution is similar to
that which haa been offered to the warring Filipinos on the island of Luzon.
The instrument confers ou the people the
power of electing executive and judicial
officers and members of legislative branches.   The proclamation concludes thus:
"We are thus governed by ourselves,
under the wise guidance of the great American republic. To all inhabitants of the
island of Negros is given equality before
tbe law."
It ia believed that the island will settle down peacefully under the new regime.
Affair* In l.usoii.
Manila, May 27—The insurgents are
returning to the outskirts of San Fernando, where they are making persistent efforts to harass the Amercan garrison.
American troops are being shifted about
preparatory to the establishment of northern garrisons and reorganization of General Law ton's division south of Manila.
Hying by the Track.
Ritzville, J_ay 30.—With his right leg
and right arm cut from his body Alfred
Barton was found alongside the Northern
Pacific railroad track by a train crew
about two miles west of Ritzville. The
poor fellow was feebly waving a handkerchief to attract the attention of the
men on the passenger train. This was seen
by the fireman as the engine came alongside the place*1 where the body lay.
T'he train waa stopped and Conductor
Shannon went back to see what had occurred. Tbe train was backed to the spot,
the young fellow was tenderly lifted to
the rear platform and carried into Ritzville, where he was placed in the care of
the railroad physician. If he is not dead
already, he can not live much longer, as
his recovery is despaired of.

Washington, May 30.—The president
bas been anxious to meet all the troops
who served in the Philippines, if this were
practicable, and he has agreed to go to
Minneapolis and St Paul to greet the
Minnesota volunteers.
With the possibility that the president
might be unable to continue his trip farther west the Twin Cities have undertaken to arrange for the mobilization of all
the volunteers aa their guests. The first
troops are expected to arrive at San Francisco the middle of June and the last by
August 1. The jubilee therefore will occur probably early in August.

A short time ago, anyone who wouh]
question the securing of justice from
British Columbian laws, would be
laughed at. This week saw fully half
a hundred bilvertonians, who had the
promise from the government of "all
tho rights and privilege* of a Free
Miner, for one year" express their
unbelief in the good faith of the
government by hastening to take out
new licences. Any question in their
minds a* to government justice was
settled by the course taken against the
foreign licence holder* in the Atlin
A* to the intent of tbe amendment
regarding the lapsing of licenses on
May 31st., the legal lights of tbe
province disagree. Like all the acts
of thn present legislature, thi* one ia
tangled and misleading.
Hewitt Bostock is making himself
solid with the people of Moyie and
Qra-id Forks His plain talk ii} regard to the way the Canadian Pacific
Railway is treating these places
touches a responsive chord in the
breasts of his constituents, and has a
welcome sound, coming from a chamber which appear? to bo dedicated to
the land, grabbing monopoly.
The Rossland Board of Trade hss
taken the initiative in an appeal to the
franiers of the Redistribution Bill to
yive Kootenay repreentation at Ottawa
as a seperqte cftiistitueney. If 15,000

If the Spokane paper*, who are
using so much of their valuable

union*, more especially the union
miner* in the Coeur d' Alenes, laying
every outrage that haa ever \>een

Another amusing story come* from
back-co-ntry district in Australia. -At
midnight on a bleak rniny night tl.e
doctor and bis wife were slumbering
peacefully when tbe telephone aroused
them. Thn good wile reached for the
telephone at the head of thn bed, and
repeated the message to her husband:
"I'm J—; wife is taken ill; come at
"Oh, hang it all!" replied the doctor;
"Ull him I'm gone to Melbourne, and
shan't tie back Ull the day after tomorrow."
Some days later the doctor met the
importunate telnphoner and apologised.
"I'm sorry I happened to be away when
you telephoned for me," he said affably,
"Are vou positively certain you were
away that night?" inquired the other in
a tone of voice which showed that glare
and Urrible questions were involved.
Tbe doctor felt uneasy In hia conscience, htyt be could not go back now.
"Certain," he replied, looking the other
full in the faco.
"Well, doctor, it's no business of mine
and I don't wish to interfere, but, d'you
know, I distinctly heard a man's voice
in your room before vour wife answered
me on tbe telephone,—Saturday Night.
