LATE TELEGRAPHIC NEWS
kts-'h^c**- w
A late dispatch from the coast says that Mclnnes has # resigned from
the Lieutenant-Governorship and Sir Joli De Eotbineir, of Quebec, later
in Eaurier's cabinet appointed in his stead.
Dunsmuir's cabinet will be reconstructed after an early and short session.    I'urner^Ili^eTThT^ppoiiUment of Agent-General in Eondon.
With the exception of official confirmation of the bombardment by the
allied squadrons, and surrender of the  Taku  forts there is little  new:
importance regarding the situation  in  China.
Great anxiety is felt in London and the continental capitals as to the
fate of the members of the various legations and the foreign residents at
Pekin. There is no further word from Admiral Seymour and the relief
expedition although he was reported to have returned to Tien Tsin
whence there is said to be telegraphic communication.
FOIJND A LONG LOST MINE
.ediscoverwon Friday Creek of the
First Copper Discovery in the
Similkameen Country.
#
A bit of early history was brought \
lAly to the minds of several of our p
lieer citizens this w eek by the discove
:opp
•dis"
Old t
well re
ber hearing Mr. Jameison tell of his rich
strike and of its location, but those were
the stiring days of placer mining and the
location was left to lie in idleness for the
coming progress of civilization. On his
death^Jjed-JVIr. Jameison described minutely its exact location, at the same
time pointing out the fact that one was
liable travel right over the spot without
discovering it. Since that time many attempts have been made to find the mine,
but all were unavailing. It was left for
a party with no knowledge of the country or of minerals to make the discovery.
Mrs. #"^pencer, whose husband has
charge of the Royalty group of claims,
was the lucky party and it happened
thus: Mrs. Spencer who is with her husband on Friday creek was out looking
for berrifs, and while hunting them by
an oMcorral she happened to notice a
peculiar looking formation of rock.
Prospector like she proceeded to secure
a satnpl^ and upon returning to camp
showed her find to her husband, who immediately pronounced it a very fine specimen of copper ore. As soon as he could
he proceeded to the spot and upon look-
rfjfijjS,? the ground over realized that indeed
f this wife had made a rich find. The rock
is of a very rich grade of copper, similar
to the cropping on the Sunset, and old
timers say there is very little doubt but
what this is the lost mine, as it description coincides exactly with that given by
Mr. Jamjgson.
GEN'L ROBERTS' REPORT
Released Prisoners Armed With Boer
Rifles—Strathcona's   Horse
With Buller.
London, June 19—No important developments marks the progress of the
British in the Transvaal. Lord Roberts
reports that over 2,000 stand of arms
have been given up at Pretoria since the
occupation of the capital. These will be
utilized by'the released British prisoners
of whom there are 148 officers and 3,089
men. Of the former 12 and the latter
248 are in the hospitals. The total of
the British loses on June 4th, says Lord
Roberts, only amounted to two men killed and one officer and 48 men wounded.
General Buller reports that the first
train through passed Laing's Nek tunnel
'bii'Moliday, June 18, and proceeded to
Charleston. The first batch of Mafeking's
sick and wounded arrived at the hospital
at Bloemfontein on June 15.
London, June 19.—3 a. m.—Lord Roberts, according to a Boer despatch from
Machadorp, sent a message to Commandant-General Botha on June 13, suggesting disamament, and complimenting the
I bravery of the burghers. It was pointed
out that the surrender would be without'
dishonor to the burghers, arid would pre-J
vent much suffering. General Botha
asked for six days' armistice in order to
confer and consider. Lord Roberts consented to five days. Finally General
Botha declined to accept and the hostilities were renewed.
Ottawa, June 19—The malitia department this morning received the following from Lieut-Col. Steel, commanding
Strathcona's horse, dated Newcastle:

TROUBLE WITH CHINA
International Troops are Back
at Tien Tsin.
The Capture of the Taku Forts Confirmed—A British Vessel Injured
and Six Men Wounded.
London, June 18.—The Admiralty Office has receivid the following despatch
from Chefoo under today's. date: The
Japanese man-of-war Teyahasi has just
arrived at Taku. She reports that the
commander-in-chief and troops are back
at Tien Tsin.
The forces of the combined fleets occupied the Taku North forts yesterday
after exploding a magazine.    The British.
of her officers and four men wounded.
Japan and Russia are reported to be landing a large force of troops. All is quiet
here. £—	
Washington, D. C, June 18.—The War
Department has received the following
cablegram from Gen. MacArthur at Manila, dated yesterday: The Ninth Infantry, Col. Liscum, ordered to Taku on the
Logan transport Port Albert will probably start on the 24th. A typhoon delays the movement.
London, June 18.—In the House of
Commons Mr. Broderick today for the
government amplified the admiralty's
news from Chefoo. He said the Japanese
warships reported that the Chinese (forts
opened fire on the gunboats at the mouth '
of the river yesterday, l2:3~o~-ar-m., that
the ships^then engaged the forts and that
the engagement was proceeding when
the Japanese ships left at 5:30 a. m. yesterday. DetachmenJ^from all the foreign were landed Saturday to protect
Taku. There was die Chinese warship
at Taku, which remained passive. Mr.
Broderick SSlded that the British, Russian
Japanese and French reinforcements
were due to arrive Thursday. ^Within.,
the last hour Mr. Broderick said he had
heard that the telegraph line from Taku
to Tien Tsin had been, restored. The
fitting out of the Japanese battleship
Asahi, of 15,200 tons, being finished at
Clyde Bank is being expedited,  and she
under orders to sail within a week.
The failure of the  international  forces
reach Pekin has greatly intensified the
lxiety here as to the fate of the Europeans huddled together in the legations
at the Chinese capital, and it is feared
lso that the check to Admiral Seymour's
s necessitating their return to Tien
will lead to large accessions to the
.nks of the Boxers and make their sup-
>n still more difficult.

Pale but tearless she stood before him,

She was poor, but proud. Adverse
fortune had reduced her wardrobe to a
calico basis, driven her only surviving
mother to the top flat of a back-street
house, and hardened the lines about her
still beautiful mouth, but it could not dim
the lustre of her blue-black eyes, or tame

every fibre of the lissom form, standing
erect with unconscious grace awaiting

, Rossland Business Men Condemn His Honor.
A late report from Rossland states that
the appointment of Hon. Jarries  Duns-j
I muir as Premier, has caused a renewal of |
the public condemnation of Lieutena
Governor Mclnnes' unconstitutional
course, during the last two years. The
rule established by precedent is that,
when a government is defeated at the
polls, the Crown, or its representative
shall call on the leader of the opposition
to form a government. In this case, he
opposition had chosen no leader,  but,
I   without waiting for it to do so, the  Lieutenant-Governor   called  upon an indi-JH1
vidual member of it.     This action hasfl \
caused the Rossland Board  of Trade
meet, and, by a unanimous vote of n
of both parties, it has sent the following
telegram to all the boards of trades in
Province:
"Will you join the Rossland Board of]
Trade in sending a strong protest to the
jlgminion government, against the f r-
~*£Bix retention in office of Lieutena t-
Governor Mclnnes, and urging his n-
stant removal from office, on the ground
that his continuance in office is a menace
to the prosperity of the Province?"

The a
nual report of the minister
of mines for the year ending Dec
31st, 1899 has just been received a:
this office. It gives a very clear
and satisfactory report of the mining industry in the province during
the past year. The total minera
output for the year 1899 amountec
to $12,356,555, as against $10,906,-
861 for the previous year; an increase of $1,144,694, equivalent to
an increase of ij,% per cent, over
last year. There is every reason to
believe that but for the temporary
shutting down of certain of the
mines the total output would have
been increased by fully $500,000
which would swell the total increase about 27 per cent, over last
year.
Mr. G. C. Tunstall, gold commissioner at Kamloops, B. C, gives
a short comprehensive report of the
Similkameen mininig division. He
states very correctly that the resources of this district have lain
idle, and are comparitively unknown for lack of communication
Copper and Kennedy mountains
Roche river, 20 Mile creek, Sixteen
Mile creek, Ashnola creek, Summit
camp, Aspen Grove and Boulder
creek are the principal camps mentioned for lode mining, while the
work done on the placer claims is
commented on as follows:— "The
decreased yield of alluvial gold is
noticeable. Notwithstanding that
the past season proved unfavorable
for mining operations it marks the
exhaustion of the placer mines in a
section of country which has been
industriously mined since i860 and
employed hundreds of men in years
gone by. This is a matter of deep
regret, for here, as elsewhere
throughout the province, it brought
into existence a class of men, fast
passing away, notable for self-reliance, rugged endurance, and sterling worth—in periods of prosperity
reckless and prodigal, but possessed
of a  generous  disposition    which
never failed to succor the distressed
and unfortunate. These men were
the pioneers of civilization in the
remote wilds they inhabited. Th
lives are closely associated with the
early history of this country,
which they have left a deep impress
that the coming years will not obliterate."
" Most of the benches bordering
on the streams; which have hitherto
been the main source of suppy ofl
gold are still available, but the ex
pejise entailed in constructing
ditches to work them is a great
and in many instances, insuperable
obstacle to their development."
worth while noticing the
revenue derived from the mining
industry in the Similkameen division during the past year. Here
are the official statistics:
Mining Leases   11
Free Miner's Certificates issued 229...$1,097.00
Locations recorded....690
Certificates of work 211
Conveyances   185
General receipts   ... $5718.55
$6815.35
To this amount can be added
fully $1500 which the office at
Princeton or Kamloops is not credited with, making the total revenue
from the Similkameen district over
$8000.00. This sum is derived
from the mining industry alone,
and is in no way connected with
the general revenue returned from
this section. And what has the
Similkameen received in return^
Practically nothing. Instead of]
fostering the development of the
country the late governments have
been surely killing the "goose that
laid the golden eggs." It is true
that $2500 was uselesly expendec
last fall, on partially constructing a
road which is no benefit and cannot be used at all until completed.
If there is an example wanted ofj
the need of a strong progressive
government handling the affairs of
the province, the Similkameen
country can surely supply it. The
entire mining section surrounding
Princeton has been bottled up for
years and no effort has been made
by the government to remove the
cork. The mining investor has
visited the camp, but has been
scared away, not that the properties did not show real merit and
value, but because of the inaccessibility of the country, the high cost
of supplies and the lack of roads,
trails and bridges to reach the differ
ent camps. This mark you, in a
mining centre only 150 miles distant from the city of Vancouver and
the Pacific Coast. If ever the prospector, the mining operator, the
business man or the settler had a
strong and just complaint to make
those residing in the Similkameen
country have the right to make it,
as instead of trying to help the!
country along it would seem as if
everything possible had been done
to retard its growth and development.

producer,     The   last   monthly     report
shows a run of 540  stamps  for twenty-
nine days,   crushing 56,699 tons of ore,
3f?& which   was   realized   $93,026,   and
't 1,219 tons of sulphrets of a value of $52-
553, making  a  total  bullion   value  of |
$I55i75°-   The working expenses  being
about $39,000  for  the   month,   the net
profits amounted to the neat little sum
of $116,750.—Alaska Journal.
Advertising.
The following very sensible remarks on
advertising are taken from one of our
American exchanges: One should advertise all the time. Only when one can
claim the undying friendship and devotion of enough people to give all the
trade wanted can one stop advertising.
In this period of dollars and cents and
ephemeral friendship, such 1
can never exist, therefore one r
everlastingly at it. One c
enough in a week to last a yc
cannot advertise on that pli
Advertising is business food, It must be
administered regularly and in doses to
fit the size of the business. The first few
times an advertisement appears, the people commence to notice it. provided it
has any attractiveness whatever. After a
time it occurs to them there must be
something in anything advertised so
persistently, and pretty soon they are in
a buying frame of mind. It is a constant
advertising that brings business.

Hungarian Hay.
Please allow me space to describe
experience in raising Hungarian hay and
using it, says Thomas Hugh in the Breeder's Gazette. I am a breeder of both
sheep and cattle of good strains, which is
the first requisite of success on the farm,
and the next step is without doubt to
have good forage. Grain will keep up
a good condition of flesh in'either sheep
or cattle, but too much will cause sheep
to lose their fleeces and check, the flow of
milk from' cows. Forage is wanted that
is fat producing, but not so heating as. to
have the bad effects so characteristic of
corn. I am not denouncing corn fodder.
I feed it extensively each year.
■ In Hungarian hay I find the best com-
irie and free from weeds;
