[Sl'ECIAI, TO TUB  CLAIM.] '  '  Victoria,, B. C, Jan. 21.���The  fact has just become known that the  British ship King David was totally  wrecked on the west coast of .Vancouver island on the 13th of December last. The captaih and part of  the   crew   of   the   lost   ship  were  . brought to this city yesterday after  having ' been   marooned  for over a  - month' 011 a desolate reef near  Nootka, and where they had existed  on shell fish and a few provisions  which they saved" from the wreck.  ��� Shortly after the ship's crew had  been cast on the reef six of the men  set out in a small boat for Cape  Beale to get relief, but they have  not since been heard from. Sail-  maker McLeod,.of the wrecked vessel, went insane and died aboard  the steamer Queen City after she  had rescued the marooned men.  Victoria, B. C, Jan. 24.���The  steamship Valencia, which was taking the run between San Francisco  and Seattle in place of- the steamer  City of Pueblo���which latter vessel  broke her- shaft recently while off  the mouth of the Columbia river  and is at present undergoing repairs���foundered off -Point Beale  yesterday afternoon. The crew  and passengers hastily launched  and embarked in the ships small  boats and endeavored to reach land.  There was a tremendous sea running at the time and so far only six  survivors have reached safety.  Many of the boats were swamped  and the occupants drowned within  sight of the lighthouse keepers at  Point Beale, but it was utterly impossible for the latter lo go to their  assistance as the breaking of the  surf was so terrific that a boat could  not be launched by them. Those  who were successful in reaching  shore state that there were fully one  hundred passengers aboard the iII-  lated vessel, and it is almost certain  that these and the majority of the  . crew have perished. No further  details are obtainable at present.  London, Jan., 25.���Mr. Donald  MacMaster, a Canadian lawyer from  Montreal, who for some time has resided in London, was badly defeated  yesterday in the Leigh  division  of  Lancashire, when lie,contested thai  constituency on the Unionist ticket.

San Francisco, Jan. 25.���After a  hard fought contest in this city on  Monday night Joe Gans,-the colored  Baltimore pugilist who is the lightweight champion, knocked out  Mike (Twin) Sullivan in the fifteenth round of what was to have  been" a twenty-round bout. Gans  was the aggressor from the start to  the finish. Sullivan was game and  made several brave rallies but they  were of no use as Gans, being more  superior, never allowed the former  to gain an advantage. A big crowd  viewed the contest.  Vancouver, B. C, Jan. 25.���The  news has just been received here  from Shoal Baj', an up coast logging-  camp, that Duncan Craig, a logger  of that place, recently became crazed  while on aii excessive spree and  had made a most desperate attempt  to commit suicide. lie saturated  his clothing with kerosene and then  set fire to himself.

One of Ihe most interesting pro-  ��� blems about gold is the origin of  the "nugget." Miners have 'long  had the" superstition Unit gold grows  like a- plant, and will go over the  old workings of a disused mine, expecting that new gold will have appeared. But even scientific opinion  has been leaning of late to the belief  that' tlie nugget grows. Gold ��� is  iound in quartz rocks, generally too  finely divided to be seen, but sometimes glistening in liny leaves like  -the frost on a window-pane. It is  also found in veins or fissures, the  origin of which was^a marvel, so  long-as gold was thought insoluble.  Sometimes it mimics the forms of  'extinct plants, ��� having evidently  soaked into their decaying fibre and  remained there. But the most accessible gold of all is that worn by  water from the 'quartz mountains,  and deposited as fiver'sand along a  valley. It is in these alluvial beds  of. .rich sand, that the nugget is  found. The" surface of an alluvial  bed is usually clay or fine sand,  then coarser sand below that, and  gravel lower still. The gold is  mixed up with it all, and occasionally deep down ' you find a water-  worn pebble of mixed gold and  quartz. But the true nugget is  quite a different thing. It is of far  purer gold than the vein gold found  among the quartz, and occasionally  washed down in a rounded pebble.  The nugget is often gold almost as  pure as a wedding ring, and it does  not.lie deep down among the heavy,  gravel where you would expect it,  but high up among the light sand  near t the surface. Why a heavy  mass of gold should be left at ihe  top, while the motion of the river  has sifted all other heavy masses  down below the sand, was a mystery. The nugget, too, has not a  water-worn shape, but is of strange  and irregular form.���San Francisco  Mining & Engineering Review.  Winter on IvIeKee-Creek.  An authority says there are but  two ways of rising in the world���������  either by one's own industry or profiting by the foolishness of others.  The.latter.method is the more popular at . the present time,' and the  quickest in taking one lo the  goal.  Another horrible example illustrative o,f the dangers of devotion to  "My Lady Nicotine." 'An inveterate smoker in New Jersey was coming down- stairs��� with along-stemmed pipe in his' mouth. He stumbled and the pipe shank was driven  right through his.head. But then  the unfortunate was "seventy-three  years of age, and we are afraid the  warning .will be lost upon a stiff-  necked smoking generation.- /  Once more in ils history McKee  creek is tlie scene of lively and extensive operations.. Eor some time  past little or no .winter woik has  been done 011 the creek except such  as was necessary to the hydraulic  company's future operations. This  winter there are between twenty and  thirty people living on the creek,  presenting-quite a busy appearance,  and once again the deathly winter  silence is broken by the ring of the  axe,, the boom of .the blast and'the  cheery josh' and banter of the .prospector. Drifts are being driven into  the " south bank, running up and  down stream. One drive has been  run nearly 16.0 feet with cross drives'  of varying length. Sluicing is going on practically all Ihe time and  the dump houses are as warm and  as comfortable' as the inside of the  drifts. Iu the drifts some of the  ground is hard and compact, requiring no timbering; in others it is  difficult to keep dry, even when-arrayed in gum coat, hat and boots.  With from 1 lo 50 below outside  and a downpour within one has a  pretty good representation of the  winter weather in the north and  south.of the province.  Hopes are high,' spirits .are good.  Someone said that they were better  in the holidays when the "Happy"  man dreamed he had struck it but  on the inorro\v woke to the fact thai  they were still in wet ground.  A more social and genial crowd  it would be hard to get together  than the boys on McKee creek.  Mrs. MachelPs comfortable cabin  and Geo.
