Fortunate-  crack the bank has been scoured by  the police, and one man has |;een located. Early yesteiiday' morning the  police discovered that the-escaping  robbers bad crossed the Kettle River  ou a log raft at a point just on ' l(he  boundary line. The capture of the  men.is exDecLett ftourtv. c  The robbers are well equipped with  tools to force an "entrance into the  bank, and they had the necessary dynamite to blow open the bank vault  and safe when oiicc inside the building. About 0.30 o'clock the who*e  town was aroused by a fusiiade of  shots fired in the vicinity of the bank;  After the initial discharge of firearms  ���������when at, least seven'shots were fired  in tbe space of a minute, a desultory  fire was kept up for about three minutes- A bundled and fifty persons  gathered around the bank in a few  minutes, but they were loo late lo lie  of any assistance     as the desperadoes  ' had He'd and successfully dodged pursuit in the darkness.  Mr:  C.  R-   Moe,  mantfgor of      the  bank., noticed     three men acting suspiciously    near tbe bank premises about 8 o'.clock in the evening  He did  'not at the -, time grasp the meaning of  them presence, but he decided to notify the police.   He scoured the town  one or perhaps two of them were bit  in the encounter, for Mr. Moe did not  believe in the foolish practice of firing  in the air when dealing- with bank  lobbers' He shot to kin, but in the  darkness Ins aim was not such that  his ���������biuiiets touched a vital spot on the  bodies  of any  of the desperadoes. <  An examination "of the rear door of  the bank premises revealed that one  or the paneis had been almost completely cut' out with a keyhole" saw.  In anolhcr five minutes tho robbers  would have been inside the 'building,  t'lcbind them a hat- and1 a punny sack,  In their- hurried' .flight the men left  behind them a hat and se\cral sticks  of giant powder were found lying along their route of escape. The men  had evidently tried to carry of! the  dynamite and- their ['tools,-  '    .  Friday was ,payday on the" V/V. <&  E. and-Midway'���������--.&"Vcvnon-.Raii\vays/.  and it is,'supposed the robbers thought they would make a rich haul by  rifling the mink. As a matter of  fact, there were a good many thousand dollars in the bank vault, and the  presence of the large aimoiint of money  had caused Mr. Moe to be particularly  watchful.  TROUBLE ON  RUSSIAN RAILROADS  St. Petersburg, Oct. 25.���������The government resumed railroad service 'on  a few roads today but under , great  difficulties. 'The decision of tho railroad men tonight to declare a general  strike, has complicated the pro'.dcm.  Trains left for M.'osco\v_ today over  the Nicholas road but/"the passengers  were notified that communication' Va8-' reridiri''  guaranteed  only  to Tvre.  Several attempts were made today  to interrupt communication by telegraph ami ..telephone out of Moscow,  and the telegraph offices had to be  giiawle'd by Cossacks. Persons wishing to send messages hud to light  their way through crowds of slrikcis  and often were sevcrly handled. The  strike has taken a violent turn in  many cities from which reports come  of encounters between the-mobs-, and  tho  police  and   troops.

He bad spent days  in  figuring  out  the actual cost of shingles to manufacturers     here and the innumerable  additional   clhurgts   iackea~an-  before  the shingles went finally into'     the  hands   of the johLcr.   JJe had ��������� figured  the actual     cost at  $1.30,  and had  shown   his figures _ to numerois  manu'  faclCirers; If     his figures  were risrlit,  and~ ho was convinced bhaU they were,  he saw no reason why 'his offer       to  British   Columbia,   to   take the place  of Maine and New Brunswick, insup-  plying the New England market with'  apart   of her   shingle supply,   should  not be accepted:  At the request of the basketbalJers  Mr.   D.

The  beaA'y work at this end  of the  line,   much   of it   through   rock," lias  been   well advanced  during  the   ,pa������t  two inon(lis  owing  to' the fact    that  the     sub-contractors have been ablo  to secure   more labor than was possible  iu   1*Jrc summer,   when  so much  r'e_ other work was  in progress all over  tho country..

The Canadian government does not  accept the map cl-.wwn by W. C. Hall,  W the United States geologist survey, as authentic.

Phoenix, B.C., Oct. 25���������The Britis|i  Golumibi-a Copper Company,   operating the smelter     at Greenwood, and  the Mother  Lode mine in   Deadwood  Camp,   has  been gradually slllchdmg  its operations  this year,  now having  properties     working near Princeton,  near  Itcdiey,  and at  Chesaw   WasEi.,  in  additiO'ii  to the Mother Lode,  itself  a large  shipper  for years.Lately,  however,   the  company lias'taken       a  bond on a property called  the Napoleon,  located at Boyd's, 'a liClIe station six miles from Marcus,  Wash.  The   Napoleon'was originally   bonded by P. Burns & Co., who have "icen  shipping  for some time from       their  rich  First Thought mine near Orient  to the  Northport smelter.    The  Napoleon  ore,   containing an excess    of  iron and sulphur,-.besides   other1 values',  was useful for   mixing with the  solicious   ore  of the Pirst   Thought,  but    with   the closing  ofthe   North-  port smelter  this week,  P. Burns  &  Co..'    had made arrangements to sell  the boaid on the Napoleon , to  the British Columbia-  Copper  Company, and  that company now has  Capt.  I-Iarry  Johns,      an experiencetl eiifiiin-e man,  at   the property  in   charge  of       the  work,     shipments     of ajbout twenty'  tons    daily   being made to (be company's  Grctinwotkl smelter.  Tn th:* connection, an unusual thing  happened.      Before  the   British   Columbia   Copper  Company took   bold of  the Napoleon,  a gting of Italians had  taken a contract to do work en   the  property,   they coming   from       hear  Midway     on'    this side of (lie line,  where      they  had been  employed as  rap way  laiiorers,  entirely  forgetting  the  present   stringency ���������. of  the United  States  I iii/in ig rat ion  laws.    As   a result, a forcp of United Slates officials  swooped  down  on tbciu  ihe ether day  and took   Ifliem   to Norliiporl   lo  explain   (heir  presence  in  the American  republic.      Thc.*e   were  seven!ecu   in  the gnng.  Mr. Gamble, of the Lands  and  Works Department,  arrived in  La(Iysmilb_ this morning and, in company with Government .Agent  Mai shall  Bray and Surveyor   A.   King,  of' the Wellington   Colliery  Company,   made  an invcsD|patioii into the difficulty that had arisen  over the road  to  the public. \Tharf.  Mr- Gamble looked thoroughly over the land -where the public  road hitherto has crossed  the  railway track, and also the     land  inwivc'liately  adjoining  this spot.  Messrs. Cornwall, Nicholson and Stewart, of the Board of  Trade, discussed the question with the two government officials,  and it was noticed .that Mr. G-amide inquired how Ion- the cross  ing that has been used.up to this time had been in use. He was informed that the same had been used ,by teamsters, for several  years. ?;  Before he left, a representative of The Ledger approached Mr.  iamble and,   mentioning   the    ������<ict      ������������������'���������'-'-<-   wie  Ladysfnitjh  people  were anxious to have the right-of-way to  the wharf ' as soon      as  possible, as-Iced him  if he would state for publication somethin- ol  the nature of what fie" intended to report, to the government.  Mr. Gamble decline)d to do this, but assurred the reporter that  a right-of-wav would be arranged for. He said the government  fully intended to procure for the public a road to the wharf. ' and  although refusinjr'to say whe re he would recommend that - the roa<i  be taken, he stated that he had no doubt that in the near future  arrangements would'be made wJ.jt-h1 the Wellington Colliery Com-.  pany whereby a road crossing their track and leading to the wharf  would be procured.  To the President of ths Board 0f Trade Mr. Gamble also said  that the government was fully determined to procure the rio-ht-  of-way, but as the head of,the Department was away at present^  he could not speak positively as to the date. "The ' Ladysmith ���������  public," he said, "can. rest assurred that soon an access to- the  wharf  will be hall."'  it*���������a:  ^k-      M/      M'        M,-*      V -      Y*  -^���������.{C    W    >-   ���������>* -  NEWS BY MAIL  FROM THE YUKON  CFG  OKAY  WO\T.

From  the distrubu-  Liou of police in that district it may  be that not long  hence the prospectors  who have confined themselves to  the '.Yukon  watershed of the Rockies  will push  over into Mackenzie river,  and". . jit would   be  no  Surprise      to  Northerners, and Klondiikers in particular  if the   next   big  placer_    strike  should be somewhere within" the Mackenzie basin.  While most of the gold strikes  have been made on the western slope  of the Rockies, some good placer  finds have been miade in Montana, and  Colorado, and perhaps elsewhere on  the eastern slope, and it has been reported that fair prospects in gold  were found on the Mackenzie years  ago. but because  of the great cost cf  getting supplies into the country the   ro    ���������..ri#������������������ wulli ���������,  gold miner could not make placer pay  ed at Circl    F rt yukon and    Ram,  House,  and the dangers      of  between the Mackenzie  and  tbe Yukon rivers.   For a long  time      the  Hudson's  Bay people have had     no  post  there.    Rev.

It has been reported that a gold  find was made somewhere above Ram  part House, on the Canadian side,  this summer, but nothing definite is  known about the reported strike.

During.a  .   i  late conversation with tbe stable boss  who has had charge of the mules and '  horses for the Wellington Company ,  ior ruaiiy years, we learned that-the:  life of the mine mule is not as the :  common idea is, a hard working, short.,  life. On the     contrary     there arci  mules now woiV.'-ng m the     Extension '  mines  that have   been steady workers  since, (ho mines     were first opened at  Wellington, not     many of the old'animals,  hut a few.     The ordinary work  in the Extension  mines fori he nunc .is.  ,-lhc same hours as     the reguiai shift  of men. and at lhe expiration of their  shift they     are     an taken   out of tho  mines and     to     their     stables above  l',iound.     As a    rule,  says the stable  boss,   a mule lives to    a good old  age.  lr no accident     occurs he may he a  good     animal and     doing his regular,  .shift at 3D years 'qi n._c    If an animal,  receives an   iniury or is disabled irom  sickness oris out     of sorts,   the cure  is     to turn him     out for  five   or six  monlhs,     and     usually they go hack  Kirong     and  wen.

Cubleigh scowled at the man who  dropped into the seat beside him in  the smoker and was taking a suaaU  brass model from his satchel.  "I told you going in on the traia  this morning," he said, "that I have no  tune to spend looking at that thing. I  don't want a bed of any sort or description. I furnished my home only  a year ago and have everything I require for the present." And he turned  resolutely to his newspaper.  "Pardon my persistence," replied the  agent, "but I wish you would look at  this bed before you give a final answer. You were in a bad humor this  morning. I have inquired about you.

Since the system was started ������1,-  174,U0U has been paid away direct  from the consolidated revenue in pensions. Although last year three  thousand five hundred persons became qualified by age for pensions,  only 1,210 applied for it. The cost  of administering Jhe system is 1-03  per cent, for . the year, which works  out at ������3,936. One curious effect, ol  the smooth working of the New Zealand system, is its improvement of relations between the ' younger generation of the aitisan and laboring classes and their aged parents'- The pensions aie regarded as having been earned by a long life of manual toil, and  are received not as a gift but as a  right.
