An average price of' $2 per acre has  been set gnd the payments will extend over a period of 30 years.

Port Huron, Mich., Oct. 4.���An  unknown steamer foundered with  her entire crew on Wednesday off  Sanila Island, Lake Huron. The  tragedy was witnessed by the officers,  crew and passengers on the steamer-  City of Mackinaw, which vessel was  too far away to be able to render  any assistance whatever to those on  the lost ship.  , Barcelona,   Spain,   Oct.   4.���The  captain'of- the steamer Liga, which  ��� arrived iu this port yesterday, reports that when off Oporto he witnessed the foundering of a large  steamer, to which he was unable to  lender ' the slightest assistance because of a heavy sea and rough  weather. 'After the. ship sank the  Liga was surrounded by floating  corpses, but as the identity of the  wrecked vessel was not obtained no  detail of the number drowned has  as yet been learned.  * Paris, Oct. 4.���-There were sixteen  balloons competing in the race  which started from this city yesterday for the James Gordon Bennett  i cup.    The result of the competition  ��� was that Frank P. Lahm,  an  Am-  ���erican,   was   the  winner  with the  ��� balloon named United  States.    He  i landed in the most southern county  of England.  Vancouver, B.C., Oct. 4.���Capt.  Griffin, who was in command of  the steamer Princess Victoria when  that vessel ran down and sunk the  tug Chehalis at the. entrance to this  harbor on the 21st of last Jul}', and  who  had recently, been  committed  for trial, has elected.to be tried by  a judge. The date ol the trial has  not yet been fixed.  .Vancouver, Oct. 4.��� President  Hayes and several other, olhcials of  the Grand Trunk Pacific railroad  returned to this city on the last' trip  of the Princess May from a visit of  inspection to the proposed terminus  of their road at Kaien Island. It is  stated that the work on the wharves  at Rupert will be rushed to completion, and it is claimed that the harbor at that place is the best on the  north Pacific coast. Mr. Hayes and  his co-officials were non:committal  regarding the date at which actual  construction, of -the road would begin   from   the  west, but they state  o  that their line will eventually be  built to Vancouver.  London, Oct. 4"���King Edward  has presented portraits of himself  and Queen Alexandra to the two  British Columbia Indian chiefs who  recently came to England to call on  their majesties. The chiefs are  much elated with -their visit.  Mobile, Ala.-, Oct. 4.���The casualties in this vicinity resulting from  last weeks'-, hurricane along the  gulf at present total-79, and the possibility is that they will.reach over  100. The tidal wave was the worst  ever expenienced here, the tide rising seven feet above its previous  highest mark. Thousands of buildings were damaged, many being  utterly destroyed. Many steamers,  including the U. S. revenue cutter  Alert, were sunk, and over 30 vessels of various sizes were carried  hundreds'of yards inland and left  on the city's streets.. The wonder  is'that more'lives were not last.  " Reports received from the coasts  of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi  and Florida "go to show that the  storm raged along the whole coast  and that conditions elsewhere along  the gulf are' almost as bad as those  which obtain here. Most of the  crops for miles inland are destroyed  and will cause much distress among  the poorer classes. The loss will  total many millions of dollars. All  the telegraphs, railroads and shipping, which were demoralized for  some days, are getting into action  and business is being resumed.  Wellington, N. Z., Oct. 5.���The  New Zealand people through their  government have this week flatly  refused to ratify the proposed1" trade  treaty with Australia, holding that  it involved much greater sacrifices  than what the advantages to be  gained could possibly compensate  them for. -  ; Creedmore, L.I., Oct. 5.���The  scores at the one thousand yard  range, the final one of the match between the Seventh Regiment of  New York and the visiting rifle  team of Queen Alexandra's Westminster Volunteers were 409 arid  383 respectively. The grand totals  for the whole match were; Seventh  Regiment, 1,648; Westminster Volunteers,   1,580,   the match thus go  ing to the former with a majority of  68 points.  Eeniie. B. C, Oct. 5.���The coal  miners of this district are still out  on strike and the men remain orderly but firm in their demands.  ' Rossland. B. C, 'Oct. 5.���The  Trail smeller-will be forced to close  down at the end of this week on account of a shortage of fuel unless thestrike of the miners of the  Crows-Nest Coal, Company is ended  and that concern resumes operations.  San Francisco, Cal., Oct. 5.���Two  robbers entered the Japanese Bank  on O'Farrell street,in this city yesterday afternoon and, after fatally  beating the manager and seriously  injuring a clerk, they secured and  escaped with five thousand dollars  in gold coin. The manager of the  bank died two hours after receiving  his injuries. There is no clue as to  the identity of the criminals.  Boston, Mass., Oct. 5.���Theodore  Roosevelt, Jr., son of- . President  Roosevelt, has this week been summoned to appear before the Suffolk  County Graud Jury on a charge of  having  man. --  .assaulted  a Boston police-  Armstrong, B. C, Oct. 5.���The  business portion of this town was  yesterday destroyed by fire, the origin of' which is unknown. The  loss, which will amount to some  tens of thousands, is partly covered  by insurance. '  Teheran, Persia, Oct. 5.���The  Shah of Persia is seriously ill and  only slight hopes are entertained of  his recovery.  Rome, Oct. 5.���The Pope yesterday received in audience Mgr. Sbar-  etti, the apostolic delegate from the  Dominion of,Canada.  Hong Kong, Oct. 5.���The emigrant ship Charter House, plying  between Hoihow and Hong Kong,  foundered off Hainan Head on Sunday, Sept. 30th. The captain and  60 passengers and a number of the  crew were drowned. The steamer  Kochsisang has since then picked  up a raft on which were the chief  engineer, twenty-three of the crew  and two women passengers, and  from whom was learned the facts of  the loss of the vessel.  L'Orient, France, Sept. 5.���The  sole survivor of the wrecked French  freighting steamer Coatcoal landed  at Genoa this week. He declares  that after the steamer sank on the  night of Sept. 25th the crew, which  numbered thirteen and of which he  was a member, clung to a floating  timber and that one by oiie they became exhausted and sauk.      '���  A report from Whitehorse says  that the inquest, which was being  held on the bodies of those killed in  the Columbian disaster of early last  week, has been adjourned until such  time as the evidence of those injured  can be taken. L. C. Cowper, who  was seriously burned about-the body  and neck, is reported to be holding  his own, and hopes are held for his  ultimate recovery.  CAPITAL FOR  RAINY HOLLOW.  A British Syndicate Secures Control"  of Group of Promising Copper  Properties���To Push Work.  Mr. M. Thomson, who represents  an  English . and  Scotch  syndicate'  which has acquired considerable iii-<  terests in the  Rainy Hollow section  of Atlin district, spent Friday of last  week   in   town on business in connection with his  company's   future-^  operations.     This   company   lately'  made  the .first payment on a group  of   43  copper  claims located in the ���  Rainy Hollow   country,  on   which  claims  they had received favorable  reports from their experts who, during several mouths past, had-iiispec-  ted   and    thoroughly   tested     the  ground.   The purchase price, which  amounts to some$1,500,000, will be  made in several  payments, and it is  estimated that by the time the  property   reaches   its   full   producing  capacity: upwards  'of  five   million  dollars will have been invested.  Over thirty men will be employed'  on preliminary work during'the'  coming winter "on the company's  properties! which include the most  promising claims as yet staked in'  the new camp. This force,' which'  is already at work, will take out and  accumulate supplies on the ground  and otherwise prepare for the greater  activities of the opening of next  spring.  It is also the intention of the com--  pany to next spring commence the  construction of a line of railway from  Pyramid Harbor to Rainy Hollow,  a distance.. of' upwards of 56 miles.  The building of this road,' some 10 '  miles of which 'will be constructed  between the international boundary  and the new copper bearing district,  which is in British Columbia territory, will necessitate a large but  essential outlay.  Mr. Thomson, who is enthusiastic  over the assured productive possibilities of the holdings acquired by  his company, states that it is their  intention to rush development work  as fast as a judicious supply of capital and contingencies will permit.  The company's property at Rainy  Hollow is admirably situated to per:  mit of the utilization of extensive  and convenient waterpower.i added  to which there is.an abundant supply of timber for all purposes.  As the erection of a smelter will  be necessary so as to more profitably ,  handle the output of these mines,  the recent finding of a large coal deposit within eight miles of the camp  will greatly minimize the cost of the  fuel required. .Thiscoal has already  been staked by a number of Rainy  Hollow residents, one of whom, an  ex-North West Mounted Police,  having known of the exislance and  location for some years.  The ' operations of this company,  and in fact the future possibilities  of the whole of the Rainy Hollow  section will be watched with interest  by the mining men of the no:lb. ATUN,   B.

How far the world has improved  . aiorallyas a; result of tha-wide spread  of education during* the* fast   thirty  years   is   a   subject to which ��� the  church in Great- Britain is   giving  serious' consideration. In, an address  at   Carlisle  recently the bishop  of  that diocese brought) a vigorous in-;  dictment   against   the   educational  products   of that- (pariocL    He said  - that while the number* of burglaries  had diminished, forgery had greatly  ��� increased.    Drunkenness was not so  prevalent,   he   admitted,   but even  worse forms ofi debaucheny had be-'  come common.    Gambling- had be-  aome alarmingly prevalent, and immorality hitherto  almost  unknown  in   the kingdom  was widely practiced.   Murders and the more-brutal  and violentiforms-of crime were perhaps growing less,, but the homes of  the - people  were diminishing with  the increase of luxury andl the- loss  of belief.   The-conditions, which the  bishop of Carlisle imputes to, that  imperfect   education which* simply  creates social unrest,, tihe* bishop of  Durham credits, to the growing prevalence of infidelity.    As mankind  loses   its . faith in the- promise of  future rewards and punishments, it  is   not unnatural, perhaps,, that it  should seek- to. malts- up  by enjoyment   in   this   life for what it has  ceased to hope for in another.. After  all,   however,, is  infidelity not the  product of imperfect education,, and  are' not the- forces of social and religious regeneration latent, iu   that  fuller knowledge which another generation,  with. its. larger/ opportunities, may bring to. the world?.*1���Van-  Qouveri Province.

A' mineral vein of nickel has been  discovered in the southwest part of  the cily of Ottawa.1 Experts at tlie  Geological Survey have seen and  examined lhe ore and say it contains the metal. .Some time ago C.  K. Johnston obtained an option on  the property for $6,000, intending  to re-sell it for building lots. The  ore is nickel with a small percentage  of copper.  There are known but a few rocks  that consist of a single mineral  alone, these being limestone, which  may be either the species calcile or  dolomite; quartzile. which is a  quartz and felsyte, orthoclase. Very  often these simple rocks contain  other minerals. Most rocks are  combinations of minerals. Theyare  not definite compounds, but indefinite mixtures, and hardly less indefinite than the mud of a river.  Granite graduates insensibly, into  gneiss," and gneiss into mica schist  and quartzite; syenite into granite,  mica schist into horn blende schist;  granite also into a compact porphyry-like rock andqtiartz.trachyte;  and so it is with many other kinds.  This fact is a. chief source of the  difficulty in studying and defining  rocks, and especially the c^-stalline  kinds.  Synopsis of Canadian Homestead  Regulations.
