Victoria   Syndicate   Conside
ih: Prcjrerty Shows Up
Remarkably Well
The Victoria syndicate which thc
Ledger announced sonic .weeks ago
bad bonded flic King Solomon mines
on tlie Cowichan river, arc reported
as highly delighted with their venture. Iu an interview with one ol
tlie members ol the syndicate the
Victoria Times says:
The results have been very satis-
lactory so far, and there arc good
reasons for believing Clint it will
prove equal to anything on Vaneoti-
.vcc Island. One great advantage
connected with it is that it is connected with it-is that it is conveniently situated for transportation to
the smelter. Thc ore is carried a mile
and a Quarter to the wagon road,
which runs to Cowichan station, and
is then shipped lo tlie Ladysmitli
smelter. A new wagon road is projected, which;will shorten this route
by about three miles.
'I'he syndicate whicli has ..taken over the property lor three years has
shipped 80 tons to the smelter. I'he
ore went Milt per cent, tor drying,
the net value of tlie copper went at
nearly $111.70 a ton, In addition to
this there was present, one and three-
quarter ounces of silver jier ton.
The work is confined to' sinking flic
"bait. The ore lias continued very
regular throughput the whole depth.
It appeared in good values right at
tho surface, and already an 8-foot
shaft is down 10 feet. II is still In
this solid copper ore. 'lhc walls of
the vein have not been Bought, the
syndicate being satisfied to test the
depth of the body. There are three
men .working steadily, nail the output readily pays all the cost ol tlio
work.
About 240 leet Irom the shaft a
second opening lias liecn made. II
shows the remarkable value of at!
per cent, copper Over the ore on
the claim there is a very heavy iron
capping, which in places is eight feel,
in thickness, Thc work is being carried on under the charge of Win.
Lewis, formally 0I thc Copper Canyon mine.
Mukden, Nov. 11, — There was a
heavy exchange of artillery fire yes.
lerilny at the Russian right centre.
Tlic Russian batteries began shelling the Japanese trenches and the
Japanese batteries responded.
During last night, Russian volunteers dislodged a detachment ol Japanese infantry from trenches in front
of Lone Tree Hill. The Japanese
r'oiitiniiod lo ishow activity on the
lelt Hank without, however, engaging in any serious movement*.
Comfortable dugouts arc being built
along the Russian lines and the soldiers seem to think that they will
winter where they are. The idea
that Field Marshal Oyama contemplates an attempt to take Mukden is
not generally entertained. Doth sides
seem to be content for flic present
with a suspension , of hostilities.
Warm clothing is being distributed
among the troops.
HOPING  FOR PEACE.
London, Nov. tl.—Baron Hayashi,
rlic Japanese Minister snid today :
'After llie Tali of Port Arthur, .lupin, would, 1 believe, lie ready to
treat (or peace on no fiighcr essential basis than that Russia should
evacuate Manchuria, Japan also
agreeing similar evacuation. Tlie
two great difficulties in tlic way o[
any suggestion ol peace arc: 'First,
the apparent opposition of Emperor
Nicholas' advisors to settlement ol
any kind. Second, the preservation
ol Russian prestige. When anyone's
prestige, if not gone, is severely impaired,, it iti a difficult matter even
witli the host of Intentions to jiri-D-
sorvc it."
Tlic Associated Press learns that
Queen Alexandra has been in con-
vt'ant communication with the Dowager Empress oi Russia and Emperor Nicholas himself iluring the last
lew days. This is interpreted here
as a hopeful sign and as possible
likely lo lead, though not in llie Immediate future, to tlic establishment of some modus Vivendi whereby steps looking to arbitration
night be Initiated without offence to
Russia, It is thought that lielore
long some method may privately lie
leviscd whereby this diplomatic harrier to action will be overcome.
Baron Hayashi this morning had no
news irom Port Arlliur and discredited  tlic rumors of its capitulation,
NEW TYPE OF BATTLE,
Plans lor the new Lord Nelson
type ol battleship, shortly to be
laid down, show some of tlie lessons
whicli the ilritish admiralty have already learned from the Russo. Japanese war.
Chief among tlie new features Is
Ihe determined attnmpo lo neutralize
the deadly cfiect of tjic torpedo attack. Tlic idea of armoring these
ships under water with lour-inch
Krupp plating has been abandoned,
it being considered lhat thc protection 'imparted against torpedoes by
light armor is problematic.
Philip Watts' plan couslslj ol tho
levelopiiK'iit of Hie doiib.e bottom.
The distance between tlie Inner aud
the outer skin lias heretofore been
only a lew inches. Mr. Walls hopes
thnt by building llie inner wal ol
touler plating and allowing a considerable space bolwivn it and the
outer bilge ol lhc ship tlio explosion
oi n torpedo outside tlic vessel will
nut suffice lo fracture both .skins.
To minimize the risk nl this still
further. It Is intu'iidcd In fill the
space between Hie inner and outer
walls witli sonic loose material that
will lake up much ol (lie concussion.
Another striking departure in design
is afforded by lhc midship cross-section ol those new battleships. They
will have virtually no curve at all
lo bilge, being very nearly square.
The idea is that iu a hull ol Ihis
shape the bottom Is lot)! likely to be
alfccled by torpedoes,
The walls ot the magazines arc to
bo very much more massive than In
miy preceding type. Tills is due to
ihe fact that some of llie Russian
warships thc magazine walls arc'
known to have split in action.

Charleston, W. Va., Nov. 11.-As
the result ol the killing of Constable
Jackson, io Montgomery, by Policeman Elliott on Wednesday and tin!
subsequent capture af the town by
the (our brothers of Jackson, at the
head of about forty of their friends,
a reign of terror exists there. Thc
Mayor, being helpless, appealed to
Sheriff Daniels yesterday;'. When
Sheriff Daniels and John Ropli were
killed by Ed. Jnckl.on yesterday the
saloons werc at once closed and governor White was asked to send
troops.
The governor replied that he would
hold troops in readiness, but ndvis

posse should meet with serious re
sisfance troops will be sent to Ihcii
relief.
Thc Jackson followers escaped to
mountain strongholds wilh which
tlicy are familiar. Ernest and Hob
Jackson were arrested and brought
to this city by Deputy Sheriff Davis
and others and placed in jail. A
posse headed by Marshall AMi, of
Thiirniod, is scouring tlic mountains
near Montgomery. Two bloodhounds
were placed on tlie trail today. The
officials in Montgomery fear further
trouble as sentiment against th.r
slayer ol Daniels is strong. Helore

was with tlie Jacksnns against po-

The small supply (if provisions had

SIGNIFICANT NEWS.
The news regarding tlic war in
yesterday's despatches was of more
than usual significance, tending lo
show the possibility ol a nearer end
to the war than has hitherto been
supposed. The statement that Japan
had indirectly sounded Russia on the
tjicsllon of peine shows Ihal tlic illi-
kailo's country is fired of Ihe long
nml severe strain and is anxious to
end il. Russia at Hie same lime is
faced wifb the alarming eonligency
flint-in s'pile of her Immense country
nnd vast population, ber stock of
trained lighting men is becoming exhausted. Then wc have the report,
thofigh unconfirmed', that Port Arthur is practically on the eve oi surrender. All these things I akin to-
gclhcr with lhc intimation lhat Britain, Prance, and the United States
might jointly make friendly rbpreftcn-1
tations to the two beligercnls look-1
ing to peace, seems tojioinb'lio aipos-j
nihility that after all tlic war is
within reasonable distance of ending. '

DOO DETECTIVES.
When a jury in the Superior Court
of Trinity County at Weavcrvillc recently awarded Ah Get, a Chinaman
a verdict ol $5117.15 against Charier:
Carr it virtually decided that the
robbery committed at tlic Cnrr mine
on Trinity river by „ masked highwayman on Sept. 13 last wns a
fake. In that robbery, the Chinaman lost $507.35 under very peculiar
circumstances,
Cnrr had just had a settlement
with him and slacked the coin upon
the table for Ah Oct to take, All
Gel had just given a receipt in full
tor the money when a masked robber entered and Willi a revolver held
Carr and Ah Get at bay, took the
coin and made his escape.
The Carr mine is at a lonely spot
on Trinity river, between J miction
and Douglas City, a singular place
for a bandit to appear nt such an
opportune moment. The more Ah
Get thought about thc incident tlic
less he thought it was a genuine rubbery. He brought a civil suit lo recover'the money stolen. That was
the case decided last week. The
jury decided that Ah Get was not
only entitled to $597.45, which the
alleged bandit took, but interest
from the date ol the hold-up.
The account of thc actions ot a
dog at the time ol the robbery was
Important evidence. Ah Get testified that the Carr dog always barked
viciously when strangers came upon
the premises, bul when thc supposed
bandit came the dog was friendly,
mid wagged his tail familiarly.
There will be no criminal prosecution for the hold-up, as it is believed that justice is satisfied by Ah
Get getting judgment for the spoils
ol thc robbery wilh interest. The
judgment is as good as coin, lor tho
Carr mine is a valuable one.

The RalheriiiK at lhc opera house
last night to sec the Salvation .' r-
iny pictures was not very large, due
largely, no doubt, to the fact Unit
thc soldiers hail not advert Ucl tlic
show sullicieutly. The series of Views
of the wbmlorfill convention in London last .July when a hundred thous,
and Salvationists met in the greatest religious congress ever seeii, were
most interesting, but apparently thc
li^htii*; apparatus was. not sufficiently strong and thc scenes at times
werc very dim. Still, a very good
idea could he had of the immense
crowds in (he procession and ihe
throngs in the London streets.
