Incidentally these aliens desiring to get  alter large and small game hit upon the expedient to that end which  enables them to cany om their sla-  xighter out of season. I.n a word,  these people arc alleged to have under the' guise of prospectors, taken  out mining licenses and on the slreu  g^h of them they havo taken to tho  woods with   their shooting ouldts.  The kernel o 1' t ho w hole. m a t ter 1 ies  ihi the fact; that non-residents, ui\-  der. the provincial', law'-!, arc required  to take wit.-licenses".to.- tako game,  and these cost ������50 each'. ��������� Xt" costs  but   ������10  to   taivc  out a .minors  occ-n Laken out in ibis ehy and else  whore byl uoii-rusulmiis', and it is alleged by government ollicials that  many ol' ine^e people .are well  .���������.noun to be in tho province for  nothing* ulhe than hunting expeditions.

It is the intention of  the Government to block this party  till the Provincial Game law pro-  \isions with regard to hunting licenses arc   satisfied.  Jt is not thought that it will be  dithculL to prove that many of  those who have taken out mining  licenses are. nothing more than fa^o  prospectors, who would not know  a piece of iron pyrites from a llou-  anza nugget, and'that their own intention is securing licenses was to  avail themselves ������f the minor's right  to   shoot game/ ...

Seattle, Aug. 24.��������� That the amount of gold which is brought down  to Seattle from 'the,Klondike dis.  trict will greatly increase during- the  next few years is the opinion of G.  Bie Ravndal, formerly United States  consul at Dawson, Y.T. Mr. Ravndal says:  "At present dredging is tho. tlbst  prominent feature of mining in the  Klondike, ������ind (here are six gold  dredges in operation! in the district.  I have cause lo believe that next  season will witness a licet of perhaps twenty "gold diggers" in operation in the Bonanza, Klondike,  and Forty-Mile - streams, providing  American manufacturers can Supply  the demand, and that the gold output will be correspondingly increased. This fresh gold, in conjunction  with the increase of the yield of  Alaska, will probably contribute materially toward perpetuating the existing prosperity in the United  States and, elsewhere.  "It stands to thc credit of the  Canadian government," he says,  "that during the years succeeding  the Klondike- rush they have expended close pn $1,500,000 for thc construction of roads and trails,- and  more than $75,000 for the improvement of the Yukon river and its tributaries. There are many Americans in thc territory aud the Canadians soem glad to have their cousins from beyond the boundary line  to assist thorn in developing the  great resources of that vast territory.  "I enjoyed the year I spent in  Dayrson as consul, and as to my official relations, T can say that they  were at all times exceedingly pleasant."  Mr. Ravndal has been promoted to  the position of consul general and rc-(  called from Dawson. He will leave  in a few days for his old home in  South Dakota.  Los Angeles, Aug. 24���������E. II. Sanderson, president of thc California  Trust Company, killed his wife, the  daughter of the late Senator L. J.  Rose,'with a razor in their palatial  residence at 1330 West Lake avenue  and then committed suicide with the  same .weapon. Sanderson, who had  lived at Los Angeles for 27 years  and was a prominent business man  of -that city, has been suffering'mentally for several months, and it is  believed by friends that the murder  and suicide were committed in a fit  of temporary insanity.  Olivia Carson, the servant, found  thc body^of Mrs. Sanderson lying in  the sun room in the- rear of the  house when she returned home at  5.15 o'clock. She ran upstairs and  found Sanderson lying dead by a  leather couch' in his own room with  thc gus turned. Rowe Sanderson,  the only son of the family,, was sum  moned from his father's office, where  he had taken charge of thc business  since his parent's illness.  There is no one living that was in  thc house when tlie. struggle for life  was made by Mrs. Sanderson, who hurled her mad husband from her,  is believed to have been attacked by' and escaped to the balcony beneath'  her husband while sitting^ in her own her window7.  room upstairs. ( She is supposed to  have leaped from the second story  inalcony to the ground in a desperate attempt to escape from her crazed pursuer.  From the blood stains which mark  tne path of the tragedy it is indicated that thc trouble started in  Mrs. Sanderson's room on the second floor. When the servant left  early in the. afternoon Mrs. ���������, Sanderson was in the room and her husband was reading in his "den"  across the hall.  It is supposed that Sanderson who  has been under constant care of a  physician for several months, entered his room with, the intention of  killing his wife as she was cut< but  once in the throat. This -wound  was inflicted with such accuracy that  it appears to have been made without warning while the woman was  sitting  in her chair reading a book.  That a struggle for life was made  is clearly indicated by the red  stains strewn about the floor and  furnituie. In a final desperate effort thc woman is believed to   have  CHINESE LOVE  AND INTRIGUE  Vancouver, Aug. 21. ������������������ A case of  Chinese love and intrigue was laid  before Justices af the Peace Frank  Richards and Thomas Crawford in  the police court yesterday. The hearing has been going on for a couple  of days, but disposition of the case  was made yesterday. Jim Lee  charged Hong Lee with obtaining  $10 under Talsc pretences,' but the  charge was dismissed. Messrs. C.W.  Craig and W. Sullivan defended, and  thc complainant was represented by  Messrs. Stuart Livingston and A.E.  Garret.  In addressing the court Mr. Craig  stated that the charge Was trumped  ui> so that the complainant could oh  tain possession of the woman with  whom Hong Lee was living. She  was a white girl of not unprepossessing appearance, and from the evidence had first lived with Jim Lee.  Then for a long time she was the  paramour of Hong Lee. Mr. Craig  charged that as soon as the complainant got Hong in gaol he got  the woman to leave.  Much interest was taken in the  case by thcvOhinese population, a  large number of whom were present  in the court,. The sitting iwas not  concluded until late in the afternoon.  B. C.

John* Burns,   President oi the local  Government  Board       in  the   British  cabinet, is one of the   ablest   and   ti u-  est friends of labor,     ln a recent address, he said:  "My last word is this, and it requires some little moral courage  to say it: I view with positive dis  favor, and, il lt docs not cease,  with some apprehension, the tendency on the part of what is know,n  as the labor movement, to isolate  itself from men who are not manual laborers. For labor to deliberately narrowly and foolishly cut  itself off from tho best and brightest spirits of mankind simply because they have not been hewers  of wood and drawers of water is  to cut off the power for its own  advancement in the near future and  inflict upon itself, a disability, that  one day, it will find the   folly   and  the mistake ot doing-",  ���������*.  In Great Britain labor undoubtedly  profited by its incursion into poli  lies, but it acted in virtual alliance with the Liberal party. Many liberal canddates were endorsed by tho  labor party, and the Liberals refrain  ed from opposing the Labor candidates in many conslituteneies. The  labor movement succeeded, but it  did not dissociate itself from other  classes.

When the   big show    was  closed and the details of seUlemeat  weie  all  adjusted somebody, thought  that the medal had not     yet    been  formally piesented to the French executive.

They traveled in the   leisurely manner of men charged   with  a  weighty responsibility.

It  takes time to arrange these weighty.  affairs, and at last a day was named foi  the presentation.   The   weather was'hot,    and    President   Fal-  lieres    had    retired to his    summer  residence,  the  French  Oyster     Bay.  He agreod that it would be infinitely the better plan to have the medal  piesented in the Elysec palace,   and  set   a   day   for   the   uncomfortable  journey up to Paris.

The  President of France came, and  there  was much haftashaking. and the passing' of  many compliments, and   then  the battery of oratorial powers was  opened   and   lor a period the   cam-  paign of compliment proceeded at   a  furious pace.     Finally came the psychological moment for thc presentation.  '    Mcmbcis   of the committee  looked at each other inquiringly. ' A  blank expression "was on every,   face.  Collars wilted.    Where was the medal''    It was not to be   found.    A  few whispers and the woeful lac* was  disclosed that it had been forgotten.,  Yes,' forgotten, in the anxiety    over  silk -hats anil frock' coats and    red  ribbons' -  The moment was fraught  with .infinite possibilities ot tragedy.  Shamefacedly the1 spokesman   turned  to" the president of France and   assured him that there really   was   a  medalr-nut that the committee could  not .immediately produce it,     ^ould  the'president   of   .Franc* be assured  that there was a medal?    Would he  consent  to receive it later?     Won d  he foririve the contretemps?     Would  he, etc.,    etc.,    etc.?    Of course  ho  would      ,. President    Falliercs,       ot  France,  is, above all, a man blessed  with a  sense    of   humor andr assuring his guests that such things happen every day  in France and' that he  cheiished     their   visit far, far more  than the mere -bit of metal,  he   led  them off to a cooler spot and    the  ice was .broken.    Now the Parisians  are looking for an artist with    the  genius  to paint a picture   of    that  historic   scone   depicting   thc president  of France  receiving  the   "American medal be did not get.-iWash-  ington Star.   o ���������  CAN HALL BEAT THE IDE MAN?  Savs,the Spokane Chronicle: A refrigerator without ice.   That probably doesn't sound good to  the    ice  i man;   nevertheless, the experiment is  of   to be    tried    here in Spokane, and  ���������  the man who is to try it feels cer-  ,1 tain it will be successful.  *   Willard L. Ilall, who   is* trying tho  experiment,    got   the   idea  from a  man from southern California. .It is  said  the    plan    is worked there   a  great deal and is very successful.*.  The scheme is to ttuild a pantry as  near the center, of the house as possible so it will not be nearer the  sun's rays, as can be helped.  The floor is made of.slats, allowing the air from the cellar to., pass  up into the pantry. From the top  of the pantry a pipe is run to the  lop of the roof like a chimney and  this allows a draft to pass through  tho pantry much cooler than a cellar will, and it is stated that food  can be kept from day to day without the use of ice.  "������������������������������������A wire netting can be placed under the floor of the pantry to keep  flies out, but it is said there is no  need of covering the top with netting, as flics will not go down such  a chimney    from .which cold air   is  passing. .  This idea is not a new one, Wit so  far "as is known has never! been tried  in Spokane before.    Mr. Hall's.house  is situated at E912 Fifth avenue andf  s almost completed.  He states that the pantry will always be colder than the cellar, and  'that in the winter time a closed  ���������floor- may be placed in the pantry  to keep out the draught when it is  !nof .needed. He states that this  kind of a pantry has a great advantage over a refrigerator, as there  "is" always a change of air, while in  a refrigerator the air practically re-  'mains'--the same., ~CP3*>:  *<.-*.asdtaaw.i  mmmmmm  r '���������  c *'3l viF^nr 11 vtr.Y r^m^Eii  ^^^fc^^^^^^^^-^HjMMNfc^  I Always  On  Hand   , -AT   WW*?  *WWV^^M*>^  I  BICKL  I Best of Groceries  A Large Stock of  DRY GOODS, BOOTS & SHOES  That Can' Be Beat *fc j  ^^0^,4*^^##^##^^^M>*###^^M^^^:| jnto School.
