Tlie czar "a few days ago accepted  -a new ministry composed of -October-'  dsts and democrats, and as a result  .revolutionary talk at the capital is  .thought lo be-on .the decrease.  L. Monitko, a peasant member.of  ���.the late douma, was arrested last  week charged with having aided the  ,hile mutiny at Kroustadt. Pie will  .be tried by court martial and, if con-  ���.victedof his crime, which is treason,  will'likely leceive the death penalty.

C,    Aug.   16.���.  Mrs. Cooksley, a'resident of James  Road,   Victoria,   committed suicide,  last night by jumping-into   the nar-i  rows   at   the entrance   to   Burrard  inlet near.here.    Despondency from,  poor   health   is   thought to have re-'  suited in insanity and   thus   caused  her to take her own  life.     The woman   sprang   through the glass of.a-  window-in the house where she was'  stopping, and, making her   way to a  cliff   in   Stanley "park   which  overlooks the narrows, she jumped into'  the woiier.

Marie. Mich., Aug. 16.'  ���The Rev. Mr. Marshall, a Baptist  ���clergyman of 'this town, severely  punched one of his congregation^  during .the morning service on Sunday and then left the .church building accompanied by over a hundred  of-his followers. A slanderous .tongue is said to have been the cause  of the reverend gentleman's  wrath.  Toronto, Aug. 16.���Mr.. Clinton  Wray, an American, was arrested  in this city today on a charge of  having embezzled $125,000' from  the Union Trust Company of -Pitts-,  burg. Wray confessed his guilt to  the police and has agreed to waive  extradition proceedings and to return to the Stales and stand trial.  Grace Lougheed, Wray'sparamour,  has also been arrested and will be  charged with complicity.  Denver, Col., Aug. <6.��� The  Democratic ticket was announced  here today with Wm. J. Bryan for  president and W. A. Clark for vice-  president. .'..'..  Earthquake  and   Fire at Valparaiso.  New York,. Aug. 17.���A cablegram was received here at noon today via Lisbon, Portugal, from  Valparaiso, Chili,' stating that the  latter city was badly wrecked this  morning as the result of several  severe earthquakes which occurred  on the Chilian coast. Many fires  were started in different parts of the  city immediately after  the   shocks  ami il is lea red thai the ultimate  result will.lie a repetition of the San  l-'iaucisco disaster. Owing to the  complete shutting of) of the coast  cable to South America and continued interruptions on the Spanish  cable,' it is impossible to secure fiill  details of the calamity. As yet no  statement has been given out of the  probable number of killed and injured, but it is thought that the list  will be large. Valparaiso, which is  the capital of Chili, is a city of over  135,000 people.  GKNKRAI.   SKWS.  Gen. Parades, the military leader'  in Venezuela, is in   New   York   or  ganizing a revolution against Presi  dent   Castro,   the present controller  and practically dictator of Venezuela.  A Tokio despatch says: Government inspection of.a meat canning  plant at Hiroshima, Japan, reveals  the fact that horse meat is being  canned there for beef. The government has put a-stop to .the practice.  .George Hal!, leader of the mob  which lynched three negroes at  Charlottetown, N. C., early .this  month, .lias been sentenced to 15  years iin prison men t. This is the,  first sentence - of the kind .in that  state..  - A Vancouver despatch says .the  magistrate'there finds that the captain of .tlie Princess Victoria was  not at fault in the Chehalis collision,  but nevertheless has bound him over  until the government can fully satisfy itself in the matter.  A judgment for $1,500 has been  secured against "Swiftwater Bill"  Gates by Attorney C. H- Peterson,  of Seattle, who loaned the former  that amount in 1900. "Swiftwater"  has also lately been sued for divorce  and alimony by his third wife.  The policy holders committee, organized to protect the losers ia the  recent San Francisco fire, have attached a.$500,000 deposit in New  York by the Trans-Atlantic Fire  Insurance Company of Hamburg,'  Germany, which repudiated the San'  Francisco -lawsuits.  A Washington despatch says the  isthmian canal commission has decided to try the etiiplo3'ment of  Chinese laborers on the Panama  canal, and in line with the decision'  it has begun advertising for 2,500  Chinese coolies. It is claimed the  Jamaicans have proved a failure.  They cannot stand the climate and  are not in-all respects satisfactory as  laboring men.  A late Copenhagen despatch says:  Legalized 'slaughter of women and  children has been authorized 'in  Finland, which is still in open revolt  against theczar and his government.  The slaughter has been authorized  in an order given the troops to shoot  to kill irrespective of age or sex.  A captain of Cossacks was shot in  the breast while attempting to arrest a woman agitator.  The Washington state department  has sent  a complete detailed .state  ment of the killing of thef five Japanese poachers at St. Paul sealing'  island lo Ambassador Wright al  Tokio. The -statement . expresses  regret because oT ihe incident but nw  apology as the men were killed for  rei'using'lo-surrender when violating  the American law, which their slay-  ei's were enforcing. The Japanese  legation at Washington says the  matter'is not an international incident. A speedy trial has been ordered to be given the 12 Japanese,  poachers who were captured.  ��� A despatch of the 14th from San .  Francisco says: Four highwaymen  tare giving San Francisco a carnival  of crime. Many people have/been  held up during the last few nights.  Last night there weie several holdups and one murder as a result'ar  their depredations near and -in Golden Gate park. Fred Mullineaux,  who was -walking with a lady and  refused to surrender, when commanded to hold up his hands, was  shot and instantly killed. '  Mining Notes.  ��� A report-was circulated this week  that the work .in the lower tunnel,  on the Venus claim, Windy Ar-iu,  has resulted in locating and cross-  cutting' the ledge, which is sixteen  feet wide. .  -Mr. Tarcloe' Thomas, of Gold.  Run, has been compelled to close  down his mine 011 account of water.  He will operate same again after installing larger pumps. The cause  and responsibility for this water will  probably not be settled except by  the courts.  Mr. J. E. Moran, of the Otter  Creek Development Co., came in  this week with a partial clean-up of  the ground handled by his company  so far this season. We understand  the poke amounted to about $2,000,  and the indications are that this  sum will be greatlyiucreased by the  end of the season.  The steam shovel of the Atliu  Consolidated Mining Co. was put in  motion the early part of the week  and,is working quite satisfactorily.  The company has experienced some  difficulty with the incline section of  their electric dump car system, but  expect shortly to have every part of  their big plant operating in smooth  order.  W. Sweet was in town this week  from'.Tutshi lake, where he antl  partners are pushing development  work on some quartz claims. Mr.  Sweet says they are confident that  the work being done will prove  their ground to be valuable. Good,  assays have been obtained from  average samples of their ledge. To  facilitate the getting in of supplies,  the government lately employer!  those interested with Mr. Sweet  and a few other prospectors to  slash, clear and grub a wagon  road with fairly easy grades between  the south end of Windy Arm auEL  Tutshi lake, a distance of .three .om��,i  a half miles-'  J ','���> I    A  m ATLIN,    B.

Ontario is likely to prove a worthy  sival, however. The government  has brought in the'-so-called Lord's  Day Bill, in which it is provided:  First���It is made unlawful to sell  anything on Sunday, to transact any  business or to employ any other  person to da any work, except works  s>f necessity, for money.  c. Second���Games aud, performances  -of all kinds foif which au admission  fee .is charged are made unlawlul.  Third���Excursions, of every kind  by land on watei cut which passengers, ars carried! for amusement are  prohibited.  Fourth���No. public park o? pleasure ground or amuse-i-Bent place of  any kind to. which, a,u a'clEoission fee  is charged ca,n be kept oper-.    .   .  Fifth.���No.   person   is allowed to  shoot at a target 01 any other object.  Sixth���The sale of foreign newspapers is prohibited��  The bill is t��i go. into, operation  March, 1, 190.7, although it is not  impossible- that it may be subject to  some amendments.  There is. a good doe.li to. be said in  Savor of this sort  of legislation   on  economic grounds, but it is. not Likely that it will meet with gen ��sal approval,   even,   in.   Canada,,   and .it  would, be altogether  impossible  in  the   United-.  States..     Nonetheless,  Ijhe   Sunday question   is one which  sooner or later  moist be   faced , in  America..   The rise- of anwisement  into, a genuine business-is destroying  the  opportunity for weekly rest on  the part of 'many thousands, of work-  ingmen.    J;ii- some- way the- need of  r.est   of   one  day in  seven must be  met.    The  Canadian', legislation is  an   honest   if extreme   attempt   to  meet- it.    lit  may not  be  attractive  to- those   who. would like-to, have  other, people- work, to  help   them  play, but ibis,not the outgrowth of  religious bigotry.���-The.- World. Today.. ���'..'������  Mines and millionaires have come  to be synonymous words. Rhodes,  Clark, Mack ay, Fair, Flood, Hearst,  Daly, aud the late Albert Beit all  became millionaires from mines.  They were all poor men in the beginning. Their only capital was  their ability to see the chance , for  wealth and seize it. They knew  when they had a mine and they  compelled that mine 'to'give up its  treasures. Those who.had faith in  their judgment lived to share their  wealth.

The face'powder known as "pearl  powder" is a compound of bismuth.  Other metallic substitutes used as  cosmetics are lead, mercury, antimony and arsenic.  Minerals have a number ,of characters which show their form and  structure, the more important being  crystallization-, cleavage, fracture,  hardness, density, luster and  color.  One hundred and thirty-one miles  is the height of the atmosphere, determined by noting the difference  between the time of sunset and the  complete disappearance of blue from  the sky.  Water, in freeing, expands one-  twelfth-of its bulk, exerting a pressure of about 30,000 pounds per  square inch. Pipes, etc., are damaged at the moment "of freezing and  not, as is commonly stated, by a too  rapid thawing.  One of the largest saws, 8 feet 2  inches in diameter and y& inch  thick, weighing 1,100 pounds, valued at $5,000, having 210 teeth set  with diamonds costing $20 each in  the rough, has just been made by  an Indianapolis, Ind., company for  the Romono Oolitic Stone Company  of Stinesville, Ind.  An opinion of the source of the  gold nuggets is that gold, being  heavy, settles at the first opportunity at the bottom of a stream, unless  a stratum of stiff clay prevents its  reaching bedrock. Nuggets and  coarse gold are found nearest the  lode, when the topography has been  of a nature to afford gold a resting  place. Farther down stream the  lighter flakes and small grains are  deposited, as Ihe stream widens and  the force of the current abates. Fine  flake and "flour" gold is often carried many miles down stream by  the force of the water, which keeps  it turning over and over and sliding  along with the muddy matter of  , floods or freshets. Metallic gold,  wire and thick gold leaves have also  been found in chunks of lead ore;  wire in copper and leaves in iron  ore in lode mines, showing plainly  that the lead, copper or iron was deposited after the metallic gold had  formed iu the veins. These specimens are more worthy of the scientist's speculation and research than  are the few battered and partly  "rusty" gold placer nuggets found.  Gold in placers comes from lodes.  It is easy to mistake the outer restraints of society 'for the inner  righteousness of the soul.  It's hard to steer a straight course  when you keep your conscience in  your pants pocket.
