says-he  is going to stay  there until

he would  just about as  soon Live in

^Speaking " of tiie condition  of    Mc-

Msry poor   luck,     lie had lost    four
horses    under    most   peculiar eircuni-
Ijtaiices.      The  accident occurred     at
St-iinta    river,     iu    it>he     vicinity of
Cook's    Inlet. The    horses which
wire loaded with packs, suddenly disappeared Irom sight,  and it was   af-

fallen      through     Ihe     earth      into

*-oal vein.   The horses.and packs were'
lost.     Professor Cook also lost four
horses  ut Tyoonk river, which     left
hiin only twelve out of the   original
'iO.     l\Ir.  White    ds oi     the opinion
tliat the expedition will'bo a failure,
as it  is,  he stated, an impossibility

On the  Yctna -river, Cook's In-let,, a
coal vein is being opened up, and
some of ihe river steamers are us-
> iiu sane for feel. *. The Caswell,
which runs up the Yetna river, and
which ealh'r in Ladysmith on her
northern trip, secured her fuel ��� for
her river  trips  from that (.dint.
jMr.   White  reports lively  times   at
ti lacier  Hay.     It  seems  that    Kir!:-
wond, a  man who ihas   lived \n   that
section  for  a  number  of   years,   ;;n.
claims a  large  portion  oh squatters
lights, took a short trip,  andhefi r
his return    there were nins*  saloons,
si'\eral barber fho-.s and some store-
doing   business on   lvirkwood'fc  home
stead.     The  latter  is  very    "hostile.
and threatens all kinds oi trouble foi
the "invaders."
Mr. While was anxious to lu-ai
lromi Ketchikaii, wliieh, he says, was
in llama; when the steamer on which
���he was a passenger, pusscd. "It
Avas," said Mr. .White, "ihe onl.
point at which we did not call on
ihe way down, and we wanted to go
jn-thcte more than--any-place when
we saw  what was going, on."

l.cc-n he'd to the mouth also. Blood
was on the towel and on the pillow. Thc body was discovered today as the result of tlic clerk of the
hotel getting a telei*hone message to
inspect Todd's room .and on visiting
it ami forcing the door which had
been locked, the grusomc find was
made. The girl had liecii dead evidently about twelve hours. Todd,
ubo is a grain .buyer at Brandon,
and a well known'resident of that
city had. suddenly left the- hotel
about that time on Monday. Some
believe the girl died in a fit, and
that Todd, becoming alarmed, lied.

London,; July 12.���The resolution
in favor - of preferential treatment
on a reciprocal basis, introduced in
behalf of the Montreal Board of
Trade at the opening of the .session of Congress ol" Chambers of
Commerce .of.'the Kmpire, was carried at today's session amid a remarkable scene of-enthusiasm. The
vote was preceded by a further animated discussion for and against
the resolution. The Australian delegates considered it to be impracticable, while the Madras representatives approved of it. The British
delegation appeared to be divided,
but when an expression of opinion
was called for a forest of "lianda
went up in :favor of the resolution
and only a dozen voted against it.
The Canadians then rose in a body
and the hall re-echoed with their
cheers, while some of them, sang,
"Cod  Save tbe King."
Coast Defence,
The Congress also passed n. resolution, introduced by Mr. George A.
Di'iimmond, in behalf of the Montreal .Board o�� Trade, to tbe effect
thai, the Congress "hereby re-aflirms
tbe principle of the resolution adopt-1
ed by tbe last Congress, that it is
tbe duty of the self-governing colonics to participate in tbe coast defence  of   the 'Empire."
The revised figures of the.' vote ad
opting Die perferenl ial trade resolution show that 105 were in favor
of the resolution 4-1. against, 21 neutral.
A resolution moved by Mr. It. H.
Alexander, of Vancouver, B. 0., and
seconded by Mr. A. B. Warrington,
that (be Home and Colonial governments appoint an advisory I'm-'
