Guer-  rera were severely defeated Monday  night at Cieufuego by the government troops.. It was the first serious'  disaster to the insurrectionists since  the outbreak of trouble. The result  of .the battle has ied .to peace negotiations, which it is believed will be  successful. A'll the revolutionary  leaders .have .agreed to accept amnesty with the exception of General  Guerrera, who still demands the annulment of-tlie recent elections.     ' ;  A St. Petersburg, despatch of.2-5lh.  Aug. said: M. Stol}'pin, premier of  Russia, was assassinated this afternoon. No particulars are available  beyond the .bare statement. Terrorists perpetrated the crime. The  announcement of the tragedy has  caused tremendous excitement  throughout the city. The despatch1  also states" At a conference of the1  cabinet Friday evening the government decided upon a policy of no  truce in the war against the revolution. The most effective methods'  will be used,to put it down no matter at wliat leugths that may carry  the government. The government  will hold the election for the second  parliament throughout the empire  on the same day to prevent the opponents of the powers in authority  from concentrating their forces iu  ���particular districts. j  A St. Petersburg despatch of the  27th Aug. said: Four terrorists entered the.home of M.

All the secret police in the house,  including four women detectives,  were killed. Several persons were  secretly notified not to attend the  reception.  Mining- Notes.  Messrs. Geo. Shirley and Joseph  Housall returned this week from a  prospecting "trip in the Pike river  district.  Word has been received that the  deal on Gold Run, so much talked,  about some weeks ago, is almost  completed and 'will be closed in a  very short time.  A deal has been made through  Mr. Warren, of the N. M. Ltd., of  ithe, placer leases, on Gold Bottorq, ���  near Pike river. The parties taking  the property up are Californians,  who-will start some work this fall.  Local people are the present holders  of.the ground.  .Since his appointment as Deputy  Mining Recorder at Wynton two  months ago, Mr. Geo. Butler has  booked the records of upwards of  forty mineral claims. Most of these  claims are located at or near Toochi  lake and give some idea of the  amount of prospecting which' is being done iu that section of the camp.  A Mr. O'liara, lately of Conrad,  .recently located a large vein of free  milling gold ore near the White  Moose properties on the west shore  ot Taku Ann. The vein., which is  ��� twenty feet wide 011 the surface,  gives assays of from $3.50 to over-  $6. Mr. O'liara is at present doing  development work'on his property.  The P. C. P. Co. Ltd. .have this  week installed an electric .dynamo  to light up the company's premises  and mining pits. The power to  operate the plant is furnished b}- a  water wheel fed from their syphon  line and is a most economical way  of lighting. During the week this  company fired ' three large powder  drifts, about 2}�� tons of powder  being" used.  Mr. R. D. Felherstoiahaugh has  severed his connection with the  Northern Mines Limited and Mr.  H. B. Warren has assumed full control. The company aTe iu goo'd  ground but have decided to work  only one-shift of 12 hours during-  the .balance of the season. Mr.  Wood, the president of the company, left on Tuesday's boat for  Vancouver. He expressed himseif  as satisfied with the company's holdings���but not with the results.  -Henry, Nicholson and partners  last month staked some very promising mineral claims near the Engineer group on the west shore of  Taku Arm. The quart/ dyke is  located in a contact of over 1 20 feet  iu width which lies between diorite  and granite walls. On the footwaU.  of this ledge, and where the 'owners  have done some development work,  there is a seven foot vein of free-  milling gold ore. Some 4,000 feet  north of the place of discovery ia  canyon cuts the lead and exposes  about eight feet of ore ou the foot-  wall and twelve feet of ore on the  hanging wall. It is the intention off  the owners to push development  work .011 .their property,-which gives  promise of becoming very valuable.  It is understood that the local'representative, of an American mining;  company has i-ecured aj.i option ast  these cialws. AKLIN,   B.

Channels. ,  One of the fust steps in opening  0 up the counln is to make good  roads, and in a city or suburbs, the  belter the roads are lighted, the  more rapidly does the traffic become  d'.-\(.'loped. The same conditions  prevail in regard to const traffic.  The peculiarity of the water-ways  of British Columbia render it imperative that every device known to  the maritime world should -be considered, and wherever it is possible  improvements should be made.  New, York litis in preparation;!  wonderful electric highway for ocean  steamships which is to be 2,000 feet  wide, 40 feet deep and, 8 miles long,  and as brilliantly lighted as a boulevard. "Ambrose Boulevard" is the  name' already bestowed upon it by  navigators and sailing masters.  The plans for the new channel,  which is to take the place of ,-the  . present tortuous one for steamships  ' approaching the lower bay from the  ocean, have already been completed  by the Lighthouse Board and a  $32r,000 appropriation to build the  ocean highway has been made.  '.'The new channel," Col. Roselle,  the engineer in charge, said, "will  place New York far in the lead of  all other ports. * While gas buoys  will be used largely, the general  effect will harmoni7e with the electrical lighting of Manhatten and the  beaches near by. The plans iu detail call for the location of a modern  light vessel at the sea entrance of  the channel and directly in line with  it a beacon light on Staten Island.  Midway in the channel, at what is  known as the Bend, two range lights  will be placed so that the navigator  can never lose, his range, no matter  whether it be in fog, rain, or snow.  In addition to the principal lights,  small buoys will be fixed all along  the course, making the ocean boule-  vaid as light as day. The lights  will be evenly placed along both  sides of the channel for its entire  length of eight miles.. On the  Brooklyn and Coney Island side the  lights will be red; those on the  Staten Island side will be white.  Viewed from a distance they will  look like two long parallel Hues of  fire,'one'red and one'white, between  which the incoming ocean steamers  ���must steer-a- course for port. Beyond the small buoys, which are to  be equipped with lights of great intensity, other great lights will be  seen above the water, and to the  navigator iu his darkened pilothouse  they will be so arranged that the  lights at the entrance and the end  of the channel will be constantly in  line, and when the ship rounds a  bend the turning lights . can be  readily held in place. The plans  for lightingthechanuel to be carried  out are, in detail, as follows: At  the sea entrance of the channel a  light vessel, ��� cost not to exceed  $115,000,' is tor be stationed." This  is to give the navigator his bearings  _at the very mouth of the passage-  ���' way. Directly in. line-with the light  '"'From the light vessel the' navigator  will sight a beacon on Staten. Island.  A new lighthouse will be constructed on the hills of Richmond at .a  . cost not exceeding $100,000. Midway in the channel, "at Swinbourne  Island, at what is known as the  /'Bend" there will be two powerful.;  range lanterns and structures for  range lights.','  Iu British Columbia we are peculiarly well situated inasmuch as  we have such splendid facilities for  obtaining electrical power, derived  from natural water course and it is  within the range of possibility that  the various channels on the coast  could be electrically illuminated  with power derived from the waterfalls,' etc., in the vicinity.  -It'must hot be presumed that I  am eillicr dogmatically or dictatorial lly dealing with this question, but  simply with a view of opening up  discussion and bringing it to the  notice of those so much more able  than myself.--'-I,\ Richards, I.
