New York, N.Y., Oct. 21.—A London     despatch to the Times quotes
ihe London Times'  Russian correspondent as saying that .the administration ol Ihe Russian Red Cross Society in thc Far East is the subject
ol severe criticism;  There has been a
great deal ol speculation in tho management and little confidence is felt
that the money given to the society
will ever reach the Russian sick and
wounded.   Many charitable persons
prefer    to make their own arrangements, hut even these hnd the task
not easy.    An association of nobles
wished to equip an ambulance for the
war, hut when the train was ready
to start the requisite permission was
delayed.   One ol the members ol tho
association went to St. l'otursburg
lie discovered that the cause ui the
trouble was a certain highly placed
military official who would not givo
permission for the train 1.0 go out
.until he received a substantial gratuity.   This was provided and the ambulance was sent forward;

WEST COAST MINES.
The Nahniint milics near Alberni,
have been taken over by a Portland
.syndicate, which intends developing
tliein and instituting operations on
a large scale should the values prove
what is expected. A. I'. Gabel who
reached Victoria 011 the lust trip ol
the Queen City, has lieen appointed
superintendent. While al 'Alberni,
Mr. t'abcl made a thorough examination ul the property, blasting away
the surface ore for testing purposes.
The result ol this inspection has
been thc determination to start developing Immediately. Regular shipments will commence just as soon
.as the managers arc certain that
.tlicy have a paying proposition.
Before the company could he sure
that the mine would develop into a
profitable concern there will have to
he further preliminary operations.
This Mr. Cabcl proposes to commence without delay. II his reports
arc favorable, il is probable that machinery will be installed and a.min.
ing business ol large proportions
commenced. This at least is what
Mr, Cahel and others interested anticipate.
C.P.R. Detective R. S. Barron, of
Vancouver, who has lately been in
San Francisco looking up evidence regarding the train robbery ol last
month, appears to be very certain
that. Alt. Dennuce, alias Jerry Sullivan, was the leader of thc gang
which held up the train near WI1011-
uoek. Sullivan is thc man who was
; sent up for three years .by Magistrate
WillianiK, of Vancouver, on a charge
of theft from August Schwann's
house. The prisoner had an enlarged
knuckle and several other marks of
thc boss of the train robbers, according to the descriptions of the train
crew, but the officials were at first
sceptical about Sullivan's ability lo
do the job.
llarron says that be has gathered
enough evidence to warrant tlqe arrest ot several others. whom he believes werc mixed up with Sullivan
in the deal.
"I am convinced .that one oi tlio
robbers was Sullivan, nuw held as
a convicted prisoner on another
I charge," said llarron lielore leaving
Sau Francisco. "It was suspected
from the llrst that he might have
been a member of the gang. During
my visit to San Francisco I have
looked into his history and in addition have collected evidence which
leads me to the certain conclusion
that he was Ihe leader ol the holdup
near Mission City on September Dili.
The identity ol the other men in
the deal is a matter which f cannot
discuss."
"While in Vancouver Sullivan pretended that iie could speak very little English, and had practically now
ing to say. He did an exceedingly
clever turn, however, in robbing the
Dominion Hank of Winnipeg oi $250,
and il is known by the police that he
j is wanted in more Iliad one place in
the State of New York.

MINING ACTIVITY.
From all parts of the province reports of the greater attention being
paid to the mining industry go to
show that for the present year a new
record will lie made in the mineral
output. One of the most encouraging
signs for this part, of Britisli Columbia is the renewed interest in thc
mines ol Vancouver Island. Every
now and again wc hear of some new
.property being developed or ol the
intention to do something in places
where the mines have lain dormant
for a long lime past. Particularly is
this the case with the West Const.
Tho men who have all along held
faith in Alberni and surrounding districts seem at last to have regained
attention to Ihc properties on lhat
part of the island and the results of
a more systematic attempt to push
lorwaid the industry there hid fair
to do a great (leal of good. Our
oWn district, too, is likely to t.ivc
a satisfactory account oi' itself in
Ihc general increase. In the inlciior
ol the Mainland one of Ihe chid features is the .revival in the silver lead
mining, and the fact that the price
of zinc has reached the highest point
on record lu the United Stfltos, hails
the Nelson News lo note that now
tho Joplin district iu Mi souri, the
chiel source ol zinc in the United
States, is becoming exhausted, thc
time has come when the immense
zinc ore bodies in thc Kootenay can
he handled with profit. Until recently, practically no attempt has liecn
made lo market this resource, but on
Kootenay and Slocan lakes a couple
of magnetic separation plants are
being placed at work and the News
advocates that llie government should
lend its assistance by having an expert in zinc to examine and report
on the zinc resources and the lieiit
method of treatment. This course
seems very desirable, for there is no
reason why Brltisl- Columbia should
nut he given an opportunity to pro-
lit by what is, under present circumstances a new and apparently eslen-
sive natural resource. This, however, is but one branch ol the subject
ol increased mineral production. What
the people of Vancouver Island need
is In lake greater interest in Hie
minerals in their particular part ol
the province and to use their own
efforts more largely in seeking to
benefit hy the stores of natural
wealth awaiting the ingenuity of man
to turn into use.

A canvass of the city is being made for subscribers to
the Daily Ledger, It has been suggested by some of the X
1i'rr:;r_ss men that.it would be of interest and value to the, t
community to know how many people live in Ladysmith
and immediate vicinity, 'l his means all of the actual residents within half a mile of the postoffice in Ladysmith, exclusive of Chinese.
Each subscriber to the Daily Ledger will be handed a
card and asked to write down a guess of the number of
people our census, which will be taken with reasonable accuracy will show.
Envelopes will be given with the card. Write down your
guess, sign your name, put the card in-the envelope and seal
it up; either' hand it to the canvasser or leave it at the
Ledger office. All guesses must be in during October; none
will be counted after that date.
The census will be computed by the 15th of November.
The envelopes will then be opened aud the following prizes
given:
1. To the person who guesses nearest to the exact number of people living within one-half mile of the postoffice
(exclusive of Chinese) $20.00 in gold.
2. The person coining second nearest, $10.00 in gold.
3. Thc person coming third nearest, $5.00 ill gold.
If two or more persons tie for any place the money will |
be divided.
This contest will be absolutely- fair. No person in any
way connected with the canvass will either give out any information or be allowed to compete.

St. Petersburg, Oct. 20.—The Russian authorities have been officially
assured that the report that
United States contemplated tendering its good offices in thc interest ot
the restoration ol peace iu the Far
•East is untrue.
The Hourse Qareette correspondent
at Mukden sticks to the story that
the Japanese ate slowly retiring.
Ou the other hand, several correspondents telegraph that operations
have been suspended, owing to the
rain, The}' #ay the armies are controlling each other across the Shark-
lie river and add that nothing im-
jmrt.uit is expected fur several days.
Tbe Russian correspondent says a
ceur guard engagement has occurred
.east, but gives no details, possibly
tlie correspondent relcrs to the report Irom Tokio of tlie Taitsc River
engagement.
BREAKING THE RULES.
Washington, Oct. 20,—As indicated
in the Tokio despatch, the Japanese
government, through Minister Takhi-
ra, here, has entered formal protest
against the line by certain Russian
troops, of Chinese clothing, the offending troops being specified in the
complaint. The United Stales department having assumed at thc beginning of the war care of Japanese
interests, have transmitted the Japanese protest lo llie United    Stales
embassy at St. Petersburg for presentation     to the   Russian Government.    It is understood here     that
Chinese clothing was nol used by the
Russians to deceive tlie enemy    but
.  simply to make good the failure    ot
thc Russian quartermaster's department to supply much needed    warm
clothing In the cold weather in Manchuria.    Nevertheless, it is believed
here that    tho    wearing of Chinese
clothing   constitutes technical violation of thc rules of war.

"Wc are    shipping over 200   tons
-daily ot Banff    hard coal, the
going to the territories. The demand has been mo much greater than
expected that we shall send only a
the I small tonnage to Manitoba. Vancouver is not a favorable point for
hard coal on account of the mildness
of the climate and because ol the excellent jjiality and comparative
cheapness of the Vancouver Island

soft coals. However, in the course
of a lew years, there is likely to be
a greater demand lor hard coal for
domestic purposes, especially as tlie
price is likely to be less than it can
lie economically delivered for this
season.
"The expenditures at Banff have already reached several hundred thousand dollars, and the total capital
invested will probably be in the
neighborhood of one million dollars.
The plant, buildings and town are being established after the most modern Ideas, and every effort is being
made to enable the cheap production
of coal. The sale of the small size)!
of anthracite is somewhat difficult,
as the boiler plants of this country
are all designed for wood and soft
coal. Changes are being made in thc
way of larger grate areas and stronger draughts, so that in another year
a large part of the small coal which
Is now being wasted will be utilized
for steam purposes."

AMERICA'S CUP,
In view of the reluctance of the
Now York Yaclif club to formally announce under what rules Ihc next
competitions lor the'trophy will lie
sailed, there is no sunrise due tlie
public in the delay of llie Ilritish lo
conic out Willi a challenge lor a race
next summer. There seems to he a
general understanding Hint the cliul-
. Itnge will Ire made,, bill the predictions have been so long unfulfilled,
that a growing tocling of uncertainty
is beginning lo be rife. As a matter of fact, the Britons have a license to feel rather doubtful about
the advisability ol cliallviigiiig in the
present circumstances. The New
York Yacht club lias adopted a new
set of measurement rules, putting
tin- premium on seaworthiness and
stability. It seems to be generally
thought that, under Hie new rules,
ia yaelit oi greater displacement
mould be hotter adapted to hire conditions, ami this is the plan under
(which the British would like to
trballirnge. The. failure ul .the Anierl-
[rnn organization fo announce whether or not the cup contests arc lo
lie governed by the rules lhat now
maintain over lli(",;lili races, bus
made the woilldbc challengers wary,
however, lor it is now conceded that,
under the old rules, the Islanders
have scant opportunity ol successfully competing with the American designers and sailors.
The New York Yacht club has
some time since established a reputation lor immobility in the face of
criticism, and it seems probable that
llie announcement of rules under
which tlie cup will be placed in competition will bo reserved until "there
is a challenge forthcoming. The Britons claim Unit this will delay their
plans to an extent that would mean
a defeat on the llrst venture, as thc
designers will be necessarily limited
in time, hut this is a difficulty that
the American designers will be iore-
ed to lace equally unless some 'enterprising American yachtsman has tho
courage to go abend nnd order a 110
footer under the new rules, regardless ol the probable action ol thc
club. Such a course would be a simple gamble, however, anil this the
Britons have shown their disinclination to risk.

A committee, consisting of Rev. W.

Active investigations are being carried forward in each of the western
11 stales and three territories By, the
United stales government iu its policy ol irrigating the vast tracts ol
arid lands in that country.
"Construction has been under way
for a year on the vast Salt river pro-
joct, in south central Arizona whoeo
P'00,000 acres will he put under wa-
Icr. There is a very long growing
season in that belt, and production
in alfalfa, fruits and vegetables
should lie immense.
"Work is under way on ihc Tuck-
ce-Carson project, in Nevada, which
will dually reclaim 2110,11(111 arrrcs.
Contracts have liecn let for work at
lioswell, N.M. Similar progress has
lieiill made on llie Miuadoka project
io water 100,000 acres on the Snake
river, In southern Idaho. Bids have
been opened for the great tunnel, 12
lect square and 5J miles long to
bring walcr on to the 80,000 acres in
the Gunnison pvojert, in Colorado.
"Al the rcer'iil agi'lculliii'al convention in Casper Wjo., tlie aiinoun-
colnciil wns made that the North
Platte project would soon be under
construction, This contemplates Irrigating 150,000 acres or more on the
Norlli Platte river, In eastern Wyoming and western Nebraska.
In each case the cost of the Irrigation works Is charged pro rain
against the acreage which Is Improved, and the Bottlers pay the expenditure back to the government in tea
instalments.'

King Robert the Bruce, according to
thc well known story, once owed his
safety to a spider. Among tho Tartars of central Asia there is a belief
that one of their khans or chiefs was
preserved, long yours ago, by the grcnt
horned owl. Ho had bidden In a
thicket to avoid capture by some one-
nylon. By und by his pursuers came to
this spot.
Tho llrst thing they snw wns nn owl
sitting on a bush. Whnt did this iiicini?
It signified In their, eyes that this bird
would not rest quietly there If any mill)
wero lying concealed close by. Therefore they argued that the khan could
not be there, and so tboy hurried on
to senreh for him elsewhere. At night
fall the khan made bis way to tlie
cnnip of hla men and told thorn how
be had been saved from certain death.
His story caused them ever afterward
to look upon the owl with reverence
and lovo. They wore its feathers In
their cups as a pledge of victory.
11 would be a fine thing to have a
new court house anil other provincial
buildings, Then everybody could get
bisy sitting on the new wharf or on
the court house steps talking about
the proposed new post olljcc and customs bouse. With public buildings,
it is.generally a case of ask repeatedly ii ye would receive.
' Judging by the numbers of Japanese fishing boats iu the harbor, it s
evident that they arc successful in
their fight lor dog-fish as their brethren back home arc lighting lor
Manchuria.

A Alunluu'. Poem.
Probably tho mnss of prison poetry I
which has been written on stools and
bedposts und scratched on prison walls
far exceeds thnt which has found expression on paper, aud many a "mute,
Inglorious Milton" has begun anil finished his poetical career with these
"lost to sight" productions.
There is in existence a short poem,
Bald to havo been scratched by a
luaniuc ou tbe wall of bis cell, which
runs thus!
Could I with Ink the ocean fill,
Wero nil tho world of parchment made,
Were every reed on earth a quill
Antl ovory mini a scribe by trade, ;
To wrlto the love of God alone
Would druln thnt ocean dry!
Nor could the scroll contain tho whole.
Though Btretched from sky to sky.
The authenticity of this being tlu
work of a maniac lias often been questioned because of the beauty of Its expression and its Bound reason, but tho
story stands.—All the Year Bound.

Man nnd III. Chin.
In man the front of the lower Jaw-
bono possesses n well marked projection, known ns the cblu or mental
prominence, covered by a fleshy pod of
corresponding shape. In all other backboned nnlmnls the Jawbone slopes back
without any such protuberance. It is a
singular fact that tho prefceuce of a
well marked chin Is associated wltb
firm character and well marked Intellectual qualities. This Is one of the
best founded rules In character delineation by physiognomy. The late Professor Huxley used to Illustrate the matter
by drawing a profile with good chin on
the blackboard and then wiping out the
chin and replacing It by a receding
curve. Any one who repeats the experiment will be surprised at the result
The reason Is not clear, but wo may
perhaps say that a well developed Jaw
Is associated with good digestive powers, which have more to do wltb character than one might at hist sight sup.
