ATTEMPT TO ASSASSINATE!

Temple of Music, at  the
Buffalo   Exposition.

)t speak at that moment. He gazed fixedly at his assassin,
with a look which I cannot describe, but
which I shall never forget, and in a moment reeled back into the arms of Secretary Cortelyou.
Czolgoose's revolver had by that time
been knocked out of his hand, and some
one had picked up the handkerchief,
which lay at his feet. Czolgosse was
picked up, forced back, and again knocked down.
Mr. Cortelyou and Mr. Milburn supported the Presikent and led him to a
chair, I heard him ask that the news be
kept from his wife, and a moment later,
when Secretary Cortelyou asked him if
he felt much pain, he said :
' This wound hurts very much.'
He seemed to be fairly easy, as he rested in the chair, and Some of the -fading
color came back to his face. He reached his right hand inside of his shirt, and
when he withdrew it his fingers were
tipped with blood. He paled again at the
sight of the blood, and I think he fainted.
Senor Azpiroz, the Mexican Minister,
broke through the crowd, and, rushing
up to the President, cried :

fracture and giving every   indication   of
being of an excellent grade.
Now that surface indications point sub-
stansially to the existence of the black
diamond in quantity it may perchance
stir up the directors of the Similkameen
Valley Coal Company to do something in
the way of exploiting their extensive
holdings. This concern was promoted
by D. R. Young of Rossland, who has
associated with him in the enterprise
several well known Nelson and Sandon
people. The company staked and took
out the necessary licenses to prospect for
coal on some 7,680 acres in all 12 claims.
So far no attempt has been made to
carry out the intentions of the Coal Lands
Act, except to pay the necessary $50 fee
per 640 acres. The act intends that the
land so located should be prospected continuously and if at the expiration of five
years it is desired by the lesses to purchase same it is possible to do so on payment of $5 per acre. The tieing up- of
large tracts of land for purely speculative
purposes however seems to be more in
line, though it may be pointed out that
unless a bona fide intention is shown to
prospect under the license, the holder is
liable to have the same forfeited and the
land would be open to be restaked.
Besides the company mentioned there
is the Similkameen Coal Company of
Spokane.. This concern has license to
prospect a considerable area, but so far
no attempt has been made to comply
with the law.
.... . ! Arthur Hickling, Managing Director
'ofthe Vermilion Forks Mining & Devel-
opement Company, is due to arrive on
to-day's stage. It is understood that the
Company has purchased a drilling outfit,
so as to prospect their holdings at depth.
On Mr. Hickling's. arrival, plans will
doubtless be made for a resumption of
work at the coal mine.

feasible pass has been found by the Tulameen, although the grades are considerably heavier than at first expected.
