The proffered aid from all parts of  the world is greatly in excess of-the'  needs of the sufferers from tlie re--,  cent calamity and, in order to avoid  any discrimination, I have decided  that the best policy under the circumstances is to acoept no outside  help."  It is estimated that already.over  teirmtllion dollars have been sub-:  scribed by the citizens oi the United  States for the relief of the sufferers  at San Francisco.  San Francisco, April 27.���By  Wednesday everything w.as quieting  clown and the men of the militia  were withdrawn from the streets.  Telephone communication With  Oakland has been re-established  and the belt railroad is again operating, around, the water front. , The  city was lighted by electricity on  Wednesday night.

Il is also believed that Roosevelt will again be  a icandidatc for the presidency .in  the j 912 elections.  A recent Washington 'despatch  said: Tlie mission -of .Maxim Gorky  lo America for cllie purpose of raising money tc aid ithe revolutionists'  of Russia lo establish their supremacy has received a hard blow owing  to some recent diplomatic correspondence between tlie two countries.  Russia has informed the United  States'government', that Gorky is  not a reformer but-a-rcvoluUDuist of  the most .rabid type; that Madame  Andervia -who accompanied him lo  New York as his wife, is not his  .wife but is also a revolutionist to  whom.Morosoff, a'.merchant prince  ��� of Moscow, .gave.$1,500,000 to aid  ���the-revolution. All .Russia is much.  concerned -and incensed at -the big  reception given Gorky on his arrival  in New York, the -opinion being  that the Americans have been  greatly .imposed upon. On receipt  tit the above news in New York,  Gorky and his companion were refused admission to all the hotels  and they have vanished and all  their baggage has been .shipped out  of that city.  STAMPEDE.  Wilson Creek is the Scene cl  a New Gold Strike:  Rush 'for   Claims   Started   Mondaj  Night ��� Discoverers    Locate/! '  Promising- Paystrcak.  Wilson creek, a tributary of the  O'Doundi river, was the scene ol a  stampede on Monday .of this week. '  Andrew Grier and John Tintingcr,  two well known miners who hav.e  been working this winter on Spruce,  left a 'few weeks ago to prospect on  Wilson .-creek, where they had done  considerable prospecting some three '  or four years ago. Ac that time  they .were unsuccessful in an endeavor to locate a paysireak, although course gold was found.  As .a -result 'of their recent search  they have discovered that the pay  lies in a hardpau about two feer.  from lhe surface, and from several  prospect holes which they sunk  in this lhe discoverers panned.out  an ounce of gold. Grier and Tin-  linger are now busy freighting -out  a summer's outfit and jl is their,intention to commence work on their  ground at the earliest  opportunity.  Quite a number of men from;Dis-  covery aud Spruce started- oiu'-'-uu  Monday night to stake claims at  the scene ot the latest strike aud  the,stampeding still continues.  As near as could be learned on  Thursday fully fifty claims had already beeu staked.  The new creek is reached via the  Blue canyon on Spruce and it is  about 26 miles from Atlin lo tlie  discovery claim. For several miles  each side of discovery the creek  bottom is from one hundred io two  hundred feet wide aud has very  little grade. There will be ample  water for ordinary placer mining  purposes.

Tlie answci to the  first question was easy and simple  euough-"-a plain NO! The second  question was unanswered���as no  one could find a reasonable excuse,  and to the third achap who arrived  Saturday night volunteered the in  formation' that he passed the mail,  which, had had a 12 hours start of  him, on the portage from Otter lake  Jo Hales City early Saturday a.m.  ' Shortly after  noon   on    Monday  the   mail    did,    at last, arrive, and  ever since we have been doing  oin-  utmost   to   find    an   answer to the  second question.   The driver looked  hale and  hearty enough.   ,Tha sled  dogs looked well  enough, even if a  little   lanky.    But   the driver probably believes that the  old   saying,  "a thin horse for a long race,"   applies as well lo dogs.    We are"' still"  unable to find the answer as to whv  tlie   mail   should   be two clays late.  Somebody   whispered     that    there  ���were excellent rust iiousks on the  joule.     But that seems a rather unkind   insinuation    in    view of   the  great   exertions   the contractor has  made to get the full amount of mail  in each week, and if possible away  ahead of time���just lo be accommodating, and in this endeavor,he has  spared neither dogs nor drivers.  But, to gel back to the insinuation, we feel certain that if the contractor knew or thought that, the  driver in question had loafed along  the trail, or had slaved too long-  taking the rest cure and had not  used every effort to gel iu sooner���  lie would instantly lire him.

A common charge broughtagainst  newspaper reporters is that they are  heartless, that   they revel  iu laying  before lhe world the closely guarded  secrets of individuals..   It constantly  happens that a reporter must do unpleasant things because others hive  beeu   guilty of those violations   of  custom,    law   or   convention    that  make news.    The opprobrium thai  belongs   to   the real offender is not  infrequently heaped upon   the innocent   ncw.-igalhcrcr.     There  is   no  work   a reporter detests so much as  that involving asocial  scandal, and  there   is   no   story thai a large percentage of readers will devour more  eagciiy.    There  is   not   a good reporter   living   who   has   not   been  guilty of that blackest, least lorgiv-  able     of   all   journalistic   crimes,  "throwing down" his newspaper to  protect a helpless person innocently  involved in a legitimate news  story  that   is   a matter of  public record.  On the whole,    the   news-gatherers  are a tender-hearted folk and generous, and that which often passes for  cynicism is an  intense haired   and  contempt for .-hams.   If they appear  suspicious it is because long experience   has , taught   them  that Ihey  must constantly guard   against  deception.    There is no walk of life a  good   reporter   is   not    compelled,  sooner   or  later, to invade, and his  position is the trying one ot   being  compelled   either  to gain the confidence of or outwit  those   lie   meets  there.���Hartley   Davis   in     Evcry-  boclv's Magazine.

V'; Boys,   in   his   British  Association    lecture- at Cape Town  recently,    entitled    "Some   Surface  Actions of Fluids,1' referred   lo   the  ���subject of evaporation, and said he  wished also to refer lo   thai  attraction of the parts of a  fluid for itself,  in virtue of which its surface   tends  ,-to   become as,small as possible, so  that it might   be  considered   as   a  contractile   membrane  of a definite  ���strength, different, however, for different fluids.    Even the gold miner  ilost   much  of the finer particles of  gold owing to its floating   away on  the surface,' if he did not reduce the  rtension   by soap  or   other   means.  Different   solids    were   wetted    by  water   or   by oil   with different degrees of facility, and   a   number   of  processes   interesting to miners depended upon these preferences.   For  instance, certain sulphide ores were  mi ore   readily wetted  by oil than by  water, and when mixed  with   both,  '.the oil laid .hold of the valuable and  heavy  particles  aud   floated   them  ���away from   the  useless and lighter  particles that remained behind.    In  the  same  way microscopic bubbles  adhered to some materials in preference lo others and the  constituents  of finely ground ores were so separated.    One of the most remarkable  processes of the kind was   seen   in  the   "greaser'''   used for separating  diamonds and some other  precious  .-stones   from   the worthless gravel.  'This he could show on   the   screen  ���where    diamonds,    sapphires,    and  ���some  other  stones  travelled along  in the water till they came to a film  of butter, while  gravel  quartz  aud  emerald tripped over lhe butter and  even over the diamonds and passed  .away in the stream.���South Africa.

That;  boulder paid them $8oo"afterwards.:  But the aggravating circumstance:  was thatithese 'greasers' knew-therej  must be more gold where 'that,'  boulder came from,' and so went  panning up the hill, and found!  what was probably the richest  pocket that region has yet pro-;  duced. It .took three months toj  exhaust'it, and-it yielded $120,000.!
