The Military conspiracy was carried out on the early morning of the  10th. The massacre was carried  out by the Sixth Infantry, under  the-command of Cols. Mischech  and Macirin. A canon was fired as  a signal for the carnage.  M. Maunovich presented a document to the King, asking him to  abdicate, for, among other things,  because he had married a public  prostitute. The King shot Maunovich dead. Those accompanying  him then shot the King and. Queen  dead.  Lord Balfour caused a sensation  in the Imperial House by partially  backing up Joe Chamberlain's remarks favoring Preferential Tariff  with the Colonics. He said, in effect, that the attitude of Free Trade  Britain a.id the countries with high  Protection walls must be considered and the question of Preferential Tariff,must be faced.  [Delayed papers from the Coast  show the subject of Tariff changes  was introducted by the Colonial  Secretary at a speech, delivered to  his constituents at Birmingham, on  May 15th last, in which he made  an appeal for trade reciprocity within the British Empire.]  .:.

Noire   of   the   miners on the creek  escaped, while  the  hydraulic companies at the upper and   lower ends  suffered   very  severely, aird it will  take some weeks to repair the damage wrought in a few hours.  On Spruce creek, in some instances the work, of the last two  seasons has gone" for naught, and  wingdams and head-dams were carried clown the creek like so much  matchwood. Anderson Bros., Hall  and Bulette have suffered very  heavily.' The last two have had  nearly all their machinery buried  under'tons of debris. All the footbridges and nearly all the wheels  that were set have been carried  away. The damage cannot well  be estimated, as the short working .  season cannot starrd such encroachments on its time for repairs foreign  to actual mining.  Owing to the absence of miners  on the bed of Pine creek, practically  no damage was done, while Otter  and Wright have also- escaped,  Birch creek came in for its share of  the torrents, but to what extent we  have not been advised.  The Scotia made her first trip  across the lake on Tuesday morning, and had to dodge the ice floes  in her passage from Taku. 7Cou-  trary to the usual goiug " out " of,  ice, it is floating up and down as if  sorry to leave such a good country.  The first trip of the Scotia last year  was made on May 20th.

We should very  much regret lo see the Civil Service  converted into " sops " for political  hangers-on, and, as far as this district is concerned, the people want  no display ol" political favoritism,  while it is well to let " well alone."  The rivalry and jealousy between  local political aspirants is argument  enough for the powers to allow the  present efficient service to remain  " iu statu quo."  by the owners.

Jrmr $:0o  INVESTOR.  Some  Suggestions    , Worth  Heeding.  Speculation in Mining- Stock Besot by Many Pitfalls���Thing's  to Avoid.  Mining is no more a gamble than  is the purclni.se of real eslate. If  the business of'lhe country is good,  your real estate stands a chance of  increase. On the other hand, moie  inoney litis been sunk iu lhe purchase of boom real estate than all  the mines of the world ccst or are  worth.  When you go into a dry goods  store you examine the^ goods; some  people even smell of them. But  you buy mining stock from any  smooth talker or from an exaggerated, prettily gotteu-up prospectus  or ad. You don't know what you  are buying." If you want lo know,  inquire before parting with your  good money.  Owners ot mining stock, and especially that purchased from the  treasury fund, can, in a great measure, assist the company by holding such stock aird not offer it for  sale. ICvery shareholder should in  every way poscible aid the company  in securing purchasers for the treasury fund with which development  work is carried' on. By so doing  they really increase the value of  their own holdings, for unless the  company carr secure the necessary  funds to carry on development, it  must fail. There are almost as  many failures clue to the fact that  sufficient funds could not be raised  to do the requisite 'amount of development as there are due to poor  property.  The public are cautiorred against  purchasing mining stocks from the  so-called "cut-rate broker,'' and  especially so during the period of  a company's development, when it  is selling treasury shares to secure  funds with which -to carry on such  development. Every dollar given  to this class of brokers, just so much  lessens the value of the share purchased, and deprives the company  of the same amount necessary to  develop the mine to make the  shares of value. So long as treasury shares are on the market don't  do any business with the "cut-rate  broker."    Neither1 buy or sell.  The question is ofterr asked:  "But how do I know whether I  am buying treasury stock or irot ?"  Deal direct with the fiscal agents  or officers of the company, and you  may be assured that your money is  going into the ground for,development purposes.  Remember that mining is a business of its own. It takes as long  aud as hard study to make a competent mining engineer as it does a  doctor or a hrwvei. This b  true, how can a.iyoi.e with an ounce  of common sense give- any credence  !o repo:ts emanating ficm sources  euliiely foreign lo mining, with uu  knowledge ol" the business whatever.  There ;ue a class of men claiming  lo be in lhe business of ."dvising  investors of the woith and slaudiug  of investments in mining. Iflhey  confined their opcalions toother  than mining it would, be ol* no  special concern to , the mining industry. But they do not Mining  serins lo have the " bill boards"  just now, and these "investor  guides" arc enterprising to say the  least. Unfortunately, not one in  teii are honest They are nothing  more than graflei.-, or blackmailers,  and unless a broker or company  contributes to their cause, the investor will be ad\i.scd to let them  alone.  Another evil, rot a whit less  dishonorable, is the fashion, which  has become quite fashionable of  late, for brokers to put out a paper  of their own, clothed with all the  garb of a legitimate mining newspaper. Such propositions are nothing less than prospectuses, booming their owir .flotation. Can't the  investor see this ?  .jio I tnence   111   11   v  0 I I bene.��� northerly ll'l  rl.v direction it-l1 , leer,  I -el. thence cii-dri'l.'.
