Toronto, June 14. ��� President  Hayes, of lhe Grand Trunk Pacific,  has been served with a writ charging him with a violation of the Sunday law.  Tokio, June 14.���One of the influential papers here publishes an  account, from" Berkeley, California,  of a Japanese horticulturist having  his property attacked audoiie-of  his greenhouses demolished by an  anti-Japanese mob. Such reports  have fanned, the flame of iudigua'7  tion to a white heat, though, some  of the cooler and wiser heads are  preaching restraint. Whatever the  popular feeling may. be among the  people, there is no doubt the Japanese government will demand indem-  ity for the recent outrages.  Berlin, June 14.���There is the  dickens lo pay in the royal house  of Germany and William will not be  comforted. A couple of nights ago  he discovered that his son, the  crown prince, was a naughty boy.  In his wrath and indignation he  smote the young man very lorcibly  on the cheek and. told him to go  hence : aud forget the way back.  The medals, decorations, etc., on  the prince's manly bosom were torn  from him.

Boise, Idaho, June 14.���In a further cross examination the counsel  for Haywood repeatedly projected a  suggestion that a great counter conspiracy had been lonned and carried .out.by ihe.enemies of the Western Federation of Miners, and that  this- indicated a determination to  direct the main line of the defence  iu that field." The defence sought  to show that Orchard' was boasting  of his commission of inunaginary  crimes, and that he was testifying  under the control and at the suggestion of detective McPartlaud.  Local and General News.  Charles Gairns received his leg  by the first, through mail. He is  now engaged in getting used to the  new member. It is sincerely hoped  that it will be but a short, time till  Charlie is walking about without  the aid of crutches.  The Canadian Bank of Commerce  at Whitehorse is prepared to buy  and make prompt returns for Atlin  gold dust. The same prices as formerly allowed by the bank in Atlin  will be paid for clean dust and nuggets. . Cash payments of shipments  will be sent by first mail. Shippers  of dust to the value of $2,000 or  over can, if desired, have their gold  assayed at reasonable charges. In  such cases a temporary advance  would be allowed. Donald Ross,  manager.

Chief Engineer Kelly and  Mrs. Kelly, paid it visit to Atlin last  Tuesday.  Found.���lii the vicinity of the  Beavis mine, a bunch of keys, owner may have same by apply at this  office, and paying expenses.  Mr. E. Rosselli, of the Kootenay,  has been" using paint? soap and  sapolio about his premises with such  good effect thai everything looks as  good as' knew.  A letter was received this week  from'. W. Ii. Vickers, . at Prince  Rupert. "Billy" reports good  health and spirits, arrd wishes to be  remembered.to all his friends in the  district:  Captain and Mrs. Turnbull aud  son John left on the first boat for  their, old home in Monmouth, 111.  They do not intend returning lo lire  camp.  Word has been received from  .'"Dad" Davis, who went to Juneau  to have an operation performed, telling that all was well. "Dad" is  expected in shortly.  Mrs. J. Cumiuings and daughter-  left on Tuesday's boat for a visit lo  her relations and her "home in Bond  Head, Ontario. Mrs. Cummings  will .probably remain all suminer.  No more meetings ol the Miners'  Protective Association will be held  till the arrival of various communications from the outside, which have  been delayed. Due notice of the  time of ������ the ��� next, meeting will be  given.  Albert Durie joined the Arctic  Brotherhood last Tuesday night.  He was very successfully guided  over the pass, and partook of the  wholesome refreshment the ,camp  cook provides for travellers on tire  Northern  trail.  Heiiry Gagne, F. Dolrerty arid A.  Staubridge left Atlin Thursday for  Pike river. They will start from  that point and work to Whitehorse  on the Dominion telegraph line aud  right-of-way, cloirrg general repair  work.

I'ather Allard arrived Tuesday  .from Conrad. lie expects to remain here a month providing for  the spiritual welfare of his flock.  Next Sunday the religious service  of the mass will be celebrated at  Discovery, aud the following Sunday the same service, with a sermon, will be given iu Atlin.  The world's .record al English-  billiards was, broken al Glasgow,  Scotland, last week, by Chas. Dawson, he making an unfinished break  of 23,769, playing 'the anchor' shot.  The break lasted a week, and on  account of its monontony, both to  the player aud the spectators, this"  stroke is likely to be barred.  The very., recent trouble irr San  Francisco, caused by a mob throwing stones and other missiles al a  fapanese restaurant, may mean  serious annoyance' and expeirse to  the people of the United States.  'Viscount Aoki, the Japanese consul  has demanded of Roosevelt protection for his countrymen, and lire  president says that, if necessary, he  will use all lire civil and military  forces irr order to obtairr il. The  Ueaty with Japan contains this provision: "The cilizens or subjects of  each of the two high contracting  parlies shall have full liberty to enter, travel, or reside in any part or  the territories of the other contracting party, and shall enjoy full and  perfect protection for their persons  and property." There are 6,000  Japanese in San Francisco and the  feeling is- very bitter. The Japan- '  esc newspapers are very much exercised over the matter.  Japanese Leaving The Camp.  Whether lire Japanese themselves  got dissatisfied with their treatment  or whether they do rot like the  country,, is rrot surely known.  Whether Ruffner got tired of his  experiment and fired these brownies  is another probability. However,  whichever way it was, or whatever  the cause, il may be fairly inferred  that the Japanese arc not fitted for  the work expected of men iu this  part of British Columbia.  Seven of Ruffner''s importation  left the camp oir the first out-going  boat, and, it is rumored that eight  or ten others may follow at any  time. This will of a certainty be  pleasant news to a great majority of  the people who have the interest  and welfare of the camp at heart.  No good citizen wants the Jap here,  and lo have it practically and clearly demonstrated that they cannot  'deliver the goods' must cause the  greatest of satisfaction among the,  miners.  The much vexed question of the  invasion of Orientals into our district is settling itself in the most  natural and most satisfactory way,,  without the aid or influence.of outside parlies.  f^^^^^^w^^i^^^^^^^^^^^^^M.

Why don't they stay below where  'big money' is lo be'made?  Why is it that after a few months  on the coast wc begin to feel as if,  we were cramped and suffocated?  Why is it we get tired of high  collars, stiff shirt-fronts,- polite society, balls, parties, theatres, midnight-suppers, and all that sort of  thing,  don'I you know?  Why does the thought of the  North scud a thrill through us? aud  can anyone explain why that longing and desire comes over us to be  back again on the fringe of civiliza  tion, with the smell of the jack-pine  in our nostrils, and surrounded by  mountains, lakes and streams?  Tell   us,  good reader, if you can,  why these things are so.  The following letter is from John  McLennan, who left Atlin some  time ago for lhe outside lo have  a specialist examine his eye, with  the hope of saving the remaining  sight. Mr. McLennan telegraphed  to Sam Johnson thai lhe doctors in  Vancouver gave him but little encouragement, aiid he was going to  Edinburgh, if he could possibly  make it. ' Big John" has not forgotten his friends in the district and  writes back lo tell theni so.  They do not go in very much for  slyle and fashion. They are not  much given lo,wearing frock coals  and silk hats. Some, a I ti nre's, may  appear a little rough and uncouth  in their mariners, but beneath thai  rough exterior tire big warm hearts  and kindly impulses.  No one need go hungry here. We  never lived in a country where hospitality was so' freely and joyfully  offered. To make a friendly call is  to gel an invitation "stay and have  something to eat, it'll be ready in a  minute." If you lcel so inclined  there,is usually some kind of tonic  or  Should ii be comin  when you make your appearance  blankets will be dragged forth and  sleeping accommodations offered  wiih a cheerful insistence.

Sincerely Yours,  John McLennan.  ���We'do not think there is a place  on this globe where you will find  people so big-hearted, so generous,  and so ready to lend a helping hand  when misfortune or distress overtakes, as right here in our district.  They seem to be united in a grand  common ���brotherhood.  A man rushed into the  office the  other  day   and begarr   to abuse  us  for   putting a certain paragraph, in  the  paper.      We  tried to explain,  but lo no purpose.

To ascertain lhe breaking strain  iu tons of hoisting wire ropes of  medium quality, multiply the circumference in inches squared by  z]/d. The working load will be  one-tenth the breaking strain for  fast winding, and one eighth for  medium speeds.  .If the winding engine is too close  to the shaft there- will be unnecessary friction between the rope being  wound on . the drum arrd the coils  already wound. Generally speaking, il is safe to let lhe distance between the nearest side of the shaft  and the irearest end of the fouuda:  tion pit, be equal to the height of  the headgear.  . To save the fine flour gold placer-  miners might try this method:  Near the end of the sluiceway and  as close to the dump as possible,  draw down about one-fourth of the  water supply through an open  grizzly on the sluice floor.. Subse-  qtieully let the gold aud-sand settle  "on broad riffle tables, which are  covered with burlap or similar material, to arrest the gold. These  riffle tables can easily be lifted and  rinsed in vats of water, where the  values settle, and may be saved by  scooping up aird carefully panning  over still water.  011     the    Corjiiillaiu    North     Arm  limits,  ��� . e<r>9   r  Map-traps, sptingguns, poison,  together with a big, savage dog,  now guatd the approaches to the  properly on which Tin*: Claim  office stands.

Having received correct answers to the questions relating to feathers, bill, feet  and wings, he put the question,  "What is it a bird can do that I. am  unable to do?" "Fly" was the answer he hoped to.get. At last one  little boy held up his hand*. ' "Well  my lad, what is it?'' "Lay air egg,  sir." said the boy.  A man who was enjoying great  sport with the. finny tribe, happened  to laud a record breaker.
