The dance held iu Discovery last  Monday night, under the auspices  of the steam shovel boys, was a decided success, financially aud in  every other way. A large number  was present and they thoroughly  enjoyed themselves. The music  was good and the floor excellent;  about twenty-two dances made up a  splendid programme, the gathering  breaking up about 2 a. m. Atlin  sent up a fair contingent, and the  creeks were well represented. Mrs.  Roxborough furnished the refreshments, and they were a credit to  that good lady.  Just how much the hospital will  benefit will not be known till the  returns are all in, but the amount  promises to be a very substantial  one. The committee who had the  afiair in charge deserve special mention for their efforts iu such a  worthy cause.  c The strenuous Hie is killing off  the men in Chicago at an alarming  rate. Health Commissioner Evans  states that during the last seven,  months 12,000 men have died as  compared with 8,000 women. He  says they are living thirty per cent  faster than the women. They work  feverishly, eat hurried luncheons  and take no particular care of themselves, thereby courting sickness  and death.  The Latest Magazines-  Bourne's.  at C. R.

The revenue  fleet is unable to cope with the marauders, though on the islands of St.  Paul and George they have stationed guns.  T. M. Danlton, representing the  Anglo-American Mining Company,  and J. C. Hubbart, arrived in Atliii  Friday. They went up to Ruby  and will remain there a few days  looking' over the ground. During  his first visit Mr. Daulton was on  Ruby and was very much impressed  with the prospects  got at that time.  John Ho'iston, of The Empire,  says: "The man who twice held up  trains on the Canadian Pacific Railway, and who got a life sentence in  the penitentiary for the last hold-up,  has escaped from Westminster, and  was at large when these words were  penned. He is not only the man  who has escaped from Westminster  and was glad of it.  San Francisco had rather a lively  time during the celebration of Labor  Day.

Fleming, travelling freight  and passenger agent for the C. P..  R., was in town this week on business, and looking up the: chances of  Atlin becoming a.tourist resort. He  .was simply charmed with the beauties of the place and staled he would  do all in his power to divert travel  iu this direction.  It is reported that Japan has ordered- five more warships to be  built in Scotland, besides the iS.ooo  ton battleship already ordered. The  greatest secrccv is beins; maintained  as to the design of lliese vessels but  prominent naval architects stale the  opinion thai they will be modelled .  after the design of Ihe Dreadnaugbt.  Henry Pyman, who has been out  doing assessment work and a great  deal of prospecting in the vicinity  of Broken Hill, brought in some  very fine specimens of galena. He  says he can trace the lead for two '  miles continuously. A great deal  oT work has been done iu that  neighborhood. At the present time  it is understood thai au option has  been taken on one of the properties  on the mountain, by representatives  of McKcnzie & Mann.  Henry Nicholson came into town  on Friday's boat from,Taku Arm.  He has been dciy^nssesstiDcnl work  on his quartz properties and feels  very well satisfied at the showing  made. There is a sixty-foot drive  along the foot wall aud the prospects are flattering. The .property  is immensely large, tlie ledge being  over a hundred feet wide and traceable for a-mile and-a-cjuarler. Anywhere on the. surface it is possible to  gel fair assays.  Mr. J. 0. Oliver, of Seattle, who  is interested in the development of  quartz properties at Table Mountain, called at the office yesterday.  During conversation he reiuaikcd  that nine men were employed at  present employed putting up bunk-  houses, store-houses aud workshops  in preparation for Ihe winter's work.  The work of development is under  the management ol Mr. J. A. Oliver,, who is well known in the mining world, having been connected  with the famous Homcstake mine  aud several of the paying properties  around and about Rossland. It is  the intention lo put a large force of  men to work as soon as supplies  and machinery-can be brought in.  Mr, Cooper leaves shortly for Seattle and Vancouver, and from ihe  latter place will send in the necessary equipment  President Roosevelt, who was appealed to has ni'ide known his in-  tions and position regarding the  strike of the telegraphers. He will  not, under any circumstances interfere. This attitude, so it is claimed  by the.men, .is much better than an  interference on bis part and shows  according to their view that he is in  sympathy with the striking men  The strikers demand an increr  twenty-five per cent in tliei.i',_f��:___,;s*i  o  Enasamsrasiia /AiXl'N.V'B;-^  ���lank .���/HMC--vi<iiiM��  '.. * *}}"��� n ��1***" ^i-y b}Vl--.rur��.ir.M'^nr.vr.MYK.4Tunp>.T  '   -    .r-.o.nNiriG.
