It turned  out  that  the land was' not  so  reserved tlia,t  it could not be dealt with, aiid the  company   thereupon   demanded to  puichase it.-   The  company's  employes, on, the other  hand, pointed  out the injustice   thisAvould be to  .them,'aAif -the- land,-'were sold lo  the C.

Having completed  'liisenveloping movement of the AUis-  '   sian   position,   General ' Kiuoki/has  '.ordered   shnullancously,  an  advance  from all points againstdlaicheng and  Xiinoyiing.       Fighting   is   raging  on  ljoth fronts and slill continues.,    The  latest report.contain nothing yet confirmatory of the rumors that General  '  JCuropatkin has been defeated. ���������  ,   ���������    St. I'eteisbiirg, -Aug. L.��������� Lieut-Gcn-  ' oral   Count   Keller   was   killed July  2'Jth, while repelling the  preliminary  attack   on   the;   "Yangsde pass, thirty  'miles east of Liao Yang.   The general  was standing near 'a   battery,   which  , was subjected to a tenific shell  fire,  , when'a shell burst, c'louC  to him, and  he   fell    mortally   'wounded,, dying  '   twenty   minutes   later."     Bclorc the  genci-.il expired he, had the satisfaction  of knowing that tbe Japanese attack  had been lepulscd.

The  llusbian losses weie slight.  St. Peteisburg, Aug. "I.��������� Preparations have been 'completed for the  departure, under command of Rear-  Admiral Eiic-uist', of tbe cruiser  ' division of the second .Russian Pacific  squadron, now lying oil'Croiistndt. It  is alio believed the auxiliary cruiseis  Don and Ural, which are probably the  ships reported as having passed Copenhagen with two torpedo boats, will  be followed at once by other converted ineichautiiieu. This time the  admiralty has resolved that there  shall be no question of the character  of the warships engaged in stopping  contraband.  St. Petersburg, Aug. 2���������The feeling  at the War Ollice  here   is' distinctly  *   gloomy   ibis  morning.     Tbe   official  telegrams  bad   been   received ������������������ by the  general stall' from General Kuropatkin  who was communicating   direct  with  the Emperor, but from private sources  " at the front it  already   was -apparent  that Simoucheng (15 miles  southeast  of llaicheng ut the   juncture   of   the  'Fengwangeheng and   Sin   Yen road.-')  had been  lost.   General. St.ilkeberg's  outpost.-: having  fallen   to  Plnicheng.  >"o word was   received   enabling   the  statl to either confirm   or   deny   the  re-ported capture of  the  late  General  Count Keller'- position   ot  Jkb.ivur-n '  (ea.-t of Liao Yung) and Yiiiig.-eo jia-t  (HU   mill.*-   i-a.-'t   of   Liim  Vang), but  heavy lighting eoiithim-on   b.itli the  solithvin ind eastern fronN,   will) tbe  object 'if the .litpltlK-C   ill tho ca������t being to .'lank   General    Keller's ,corps  from th,;  -uiith   aiid   noith.   which is  emily jio-.-ible.     The   jiroyri-jp of the  enveloping movement may have forced  the corp- to retire on Linn lhan   Sian,  which    ir-   the   ncct   podlioii   in the  direction of Liao Yang.  Oll'icinl ilccpalchft- detailing the engagement arc hardly expected  till the  evening     The   failure of the garri.-.on  of bimciiclicng   to   retreat   along the  northern   road   probably   was due to  the presence of the  Japanese column  flanking   tho   late    General   Keller's  corps from the south.     In view of tbe  inability   of   the    lUi.-i-dn.ns   to   hold  Simoucheng it is   considered unlikely  that Generals ZaroubaifT anel   Stiikcl-  berg will   attempt  to  offer utubborn  resistance at Naichcng.    Jt is possible  that they are already retiring on  Anslianshan, half-way between Hai  Cheng and Liao Yang, as indicated in  these despatches last- night.' ..There is  reason to believe that General Oku's  divisions are advancing- from New-  chwang on Haicheng'Mvith a view of  flunking and cutting'off General Stak-  elberg's retreat; but this movement is  not likely to succeed- on account of  Stakelberg''s ability to. retire ](north-  ward on.Anshanshan.  An interesting detail evidencing the  iieiceness of the artillery duel south  of Hai Cheng July 31 is the fact that  the,Kussian batteries on the left of  the flank fired '-1S42 shots in four  hours. - ,   ,,    ''  All the military critics ' this morning take the view'that the decisive  moment of the campaign has arrived.  The army organ' says . that General  Kuroki prepared for ,his advance by  'drawing in his .forces which were  scattered over a front of forty miles.  The paper says it is evident that a  large JapaiVese foice is working along  the Siamatsze Lia'o Yang line. It expresses doubt, however, which . advance of the enemy will push home  and whether it is-Kiiroki'a intention  to try to'Hank Kuioptitkin north or  south of Liao Yang. ,s , '_'��������� *   ,    ���������  .The Russ says :    "The decisive mo  ment has 'arrived,  but^ judging  from  the latest reports  the Russians  have  retained their positions and this 'time  it will not be an order to retreat."  r <"   RAIL ANifsTEAME'R.  A book-agent was trying to sell a  book to a well-known ra'ihyay conductor at Kamloops. , The conductor  was busy and used train language'to  tlie agent. Still the book agent kept  on', and the conductors language got  stronger. /Then'the agent wound up  by writing a slip of paper and "handed  it to the conductor who read :. "I am,  deaf and have not , heard . a  word'you said. I am stone broke  and want'hei p.  book for $2.50."  so abashed he handed the agent .$2.50,  took the book and threw it in a corner. Sometime afterwards" curiosity  prompted him to, look for the book.  He found it, and wus^so Veil pleased  with it? he "now says he would not  ta'ltc $25.00 for it.a'  ~ A good" story' is toldrin railway  circles of Conductor^ Joe McCrum.  Train master J3Uon had made' the  selections of passenger,conductors for  the new Imperial Limited service.  The rule is that appointments are  mad by seniority. Joe saw in tbe  -Mail that conductors Armstiong,  Heichemer ancb Lawson 'bad been  selected, and as bis seniority is the  same as Conductor Heichniei's. he  hied himself to the trainmaster's  ollice and demanded an explanation.  The' trainmaster looked the matter  up and found Joe was right, but  pointed out it wa? too late to change  it now. as uniforms hue! been ordered  for Conductors Tferchmer, Armstrong  and Lawson.' ''Oh. chat don't make  any difference'" said Joe.' ''I can  wear either Herchmer's, Armstrong's  or. Lawson"sclothe5." ,Joe"s argument  proved irres is table and he got the  appointment.  ALIEN J.AB0R.  Stringent, Measures for Re-'  striction���������Undesfrable A Immigrants to be Stopped.  Ottawa, July 29.���������Sir William  Mulock introduced his Alien Labor  Bill. It .provides against importation  of alien labor, under promise of employment, and it is made an offence  to import under contract.

SERIOUSMARGE  Indignation Over, Police Negli-  ,   ' gence at Clanwilliairi:  , The workmen employed on the railway contract at Clanwilliam are in-'  dignanfc ,over what they allege to be  the negligence of the police in regard  to Anderson', the missing time-keeper.  Chief Bain-went out and did all he  could, but the case'was out of-his  jurisdiction.      ,  The men complain- the 'matter has  not been followed up by the provincial  police, and they, go so far as to describe  'the   way   in   which     the   provincial  authorities have  handled  affairs as a  piece, of hciiitless  negligence.   It  is  now nearly three weeks  since Anderson  was-missed.    A  box .containing  private cone-pondence,   money, and  valuables belonging  to  the  men employed on the 'work,  and   which were  entrusted to his-care, lies in the camp.  No oflicer'has fta,keii  the  trouble'to  open this box, find out 'the address of  deceased's relatives, and  advise them  about -the   affair.    No   investigation  has been made as to  the ownership'of  tbe valuables   left   in   charge of'deceased, ,and  foiy their 'return ,to  the  rightful' owners* Nothing has been  done to look'unto   the suspicions of  foul play which exist."in ,'the camp l'e-  garding the fate of deceased.  Anderson ,vvas   a   steady,   leliable  young Englishman,  highly  respected  in the camp," and  kept  his  papers in  particularly good shape   in a deep inside pocket of  his "waist.o.it which he  kept buttoned up.  'Had befallen into  the lake, it is considered these papers  must have been' retained in' the usual  position   in   the   cloth.ng, but   they  weie found floating'on   the  lake as if  they   had, been   extracted   from hi%  pockeU.   Beyond  the  work clono by  j Chief Bain in  exploding dynamite'to  bring up'the body,  nothing hag been  done by the pioyincial  police to drag  the <miall lake for the body if it should  be there, or to  ascertain   where it has  been planted if it should be a case of  foul play, and the papcis weie thrown i  on the lake as a blind.,      '   '  ' It is 'high 'time   the   minister of',  he has shipped a lot of roses to  Dawson city.

Henry, the well-known nurseryman, of Vancouver, is devoting  special attention to raising stock for  the fruitgrowers of the province. He  basset out 100,000 young trees,this  season.'.

Dominion Exhibition  atAVinnipeg. The display of fruits  is especially -fine and calls forth'  favorable comment. There is no  doubt but that parts of B. C. are  exceptionally , adapted lo' fruit  growing, and the, acreage of orchards planted continues 'do increase year by year. ' The pros-  pec'ts are that', at no distant day,  the valleys of B. C. will be'des-  cribed as not only "flowing with  milk and honey", but "a 'land of  olivet; and figs, a land of vines and  pomegranates"? This is 'what the  ���������'���������Free Press" says of our exhibit":  "The corner of the British Columbia building,'given, up to the  fruit exhibit .from that' province  ���������looks simply charming. ��������� The fruit  that hasybeen bottled is in tall,  slender jars, quite ornamental in  themselves,''and'they are arranged  on shelves, wreathed with' holly,  ivy anel sprays 'of cedar and fir and  spruce from tho sapie province.  Below the bottled fruits 'are' the  boxes of magnificent red and black  chenies, immense gooseberries as  'large (as plums, raspberries and,  tomatoes, tlie latter quite.the finest  that have been exhibited in Winnipeg this ,,-year. Free supplies of  green fruit come in daily; .what  was 'shown yesterday will be replaced today by still fresher cases.  Of great interest to visitors'are'the  branches of'cherry trees with the  fruit on them. The'cluslers are'so  thick that many will not believe  that they'-"actually grow .on . the  trees until, the 'secretary 'lifts tho  branch , up', and shows them ,lhat  such is the case."

The taxation <has  been doubled without respect to  the'fairness of its incidence! The  system'of taxation has,created distrust' throughout'-the - province.  The public- service, is vastly-overmanned without any fair attempt  being made tto bring "the expenditure within'-the- means ' of' qthc  province. * The' greatyresources of  the coal' and'oil 'lands of Easl  Kootenay, which should have been  conserved to the province, have  been made the plaything of a legal  gamble between foreign'exploiter?  and Investors of the province.  Nothing has been done to open up  the'country either by roads or railways. The promises to relieve the  undue burden of taxation on the  low-grade mines, which are the  backbone of the province, have not  been kept. Settlement is blocked  just at a time when the province  has an opportunity to get some of  lhe large immigration . of settlers  into the west, but there is no in  formation available to the public  nor has the government moved one  inch to remedy the serious condition of things existing in this  respect.

A't tlie end  of  this  drift the quart/, lead has come in contact with   the main' lead.   This level  is connected   through   to  tho upper  workings  on   the   lead.   The   quartz  lead   cuts' across  the   formation, and  the main'lead  while nearly following  the strike of the rocks, is independent  of  their  bedding. , The walls  of  the  main   lead     are     sometimes     slips.  Stringers' run   off- into  the countiy  rock which is fr.tcturedjarid traversed  by slips.    There aie two'levels above  this lower one.    On the  sin face, near  the upper tunnel, the cross vein coming  in   from' the' southeast, turns, to  321   degrees   and   then 'round   to' 2 |  degrees,,which couisc it  is  following  when cut ofi" by the slip, forming tho  south wall   of  the main lead."   In the  second level it is still cut by the main  lead, but in the  lower workings, it is  Siiid   to   angle     round   and   become  parallel to or join the main lend.    Its  relationship to the bedding of tbeiock  could not.be solved   beyond doubt, on  account'of the fracturing and slipping  in tbe rock, but it appealed to be cutting  the   formation., On, 'he   other  hand, its course' would ^suggest that it  occurred  between   the   beds forming  the end of -the canoe-shaped synclinal  basin., To the  east on   the A'iax, at  -* ( r t J i  tbe east end of the diiffc, ore'occurs in  scams and reticulating veins follow ing  the strike of  the rocks.,-.Tho strike is  eastward/with a northerly dip, but followed eastward,' the' beds* successively  bend northw.nd with  a  westerly dip;  that is, vve have-here ,tbe  eastern end  of a   "synclinal     basin." , Succossiye  portions of the ore following the beds'  turn * northward from  their original  course.    The occurienco of ore on the  axes  of folds���������miniature saddle,reefs  or saddle leefs inverted���������is not an'uncommon featmc in the minor folds of  the Lardeau district.   This  folding is  accompanied by a certaiifamounl of  slipping and faulting.   The ciosslead.  as its attitude ^suggests* may, possibly  repiesent   ore  'occupying   a   similar  position at the western end of ,the fold,  but more work' will  have totbe done  between the Ajax and Nettie L. before  this can be , proved. -So  far the  evidence is rather unfavoiable 'to such'a  theory.    The ore'"consists  of quaitz,  usually   heayily     mineralized     with  tetrahedrite, galena, blende, and some  copper' and     iron   pyrites.   ; Where  weathered,Tvviio   silver is  sometimes  found.      Occasionally ' '"the , <vai ions  minerals occur as -separate  bands in  the ore.    Sometimes  the .tetrahedrite  suriounds masses of blende, and veins  and veinlets of copper pyrites'travel so  tbe tetrahedrite, so  that  the order ot  development of the minerals has bem  blende,   tetrahedrite,   copper   pyrites  and galena.  Calcitc and scricite occur  in   the   quartz   gangue.      Tbe   vein  material may form  a wide solid mass  or may occur  as  numerous reticulating veins and  stringers  in   tho'rock.  While mostly occurring in and about  fissures, it may  bo  deposited between  the beds.   Replacement of  the country rock  by  vein   material has taken  place, so that  all   stages 'of development may be met from a few striugers  of quartz to a  complete network, and  finally the whole lock may be replaced  by ore.   ,Thc  rock  is usually  highly  carbonaceous near  the ores.    Besides  silver and lead  values, the  ores'ciury  some   gold.    Gold   is   found   in   tbe  tetrahedrite and, in   the Ajax, tunnel,  quait/ with blende, pyrite and a little  g.Uena is  said   to   run  $100 in gold.  Some assays arc said   to  have l tin is  high as 20 o/.s.  in  gold.   About 2,300  tons of oie have been shipped,'said to  have returned over $121,000 net.   The  average values  aie said to be���������Golf1,  13 o/,.; silver, "l<19-G  oz.; lead, 20.0 per  cent.   The ore  tetaiiis its  chiiiactcr  and values at  tho giealcst depth yet  attained, 300 feet.  Shipments were discontinued in  June, pending the completion of an  S,000-fect tramway from the mines to  the silver mill, under constructional  Five-mile, to treat this and the Silvc  Cup ore. Up to the picscnt time, on  account of the long haul by wagon to  Trout lake, and the cost of shipping  to the smelter at Nelson or Trail, only  the higher grade ore con d be handled,  and a dump of about '1,000 tons of  second grade ore is now ready for:  the mill. It is expected that this and  the ore from the large quart/, vein can  be successfully handled under tbe new  conditions About 00 men aro being  employed at the mine. The mine is  equipped with iin air compiessor, etc.  (To bo Continued I  FLOWS CIRCUS  Kiro, an African Baboon, Loops  the Loop In An Automobile.

In the last volcanic eruption of  the Revelstoke Herald Talbot  Liddosdalc seems to be of the  opinion that vve should be living  in Siberia where newspaper men of  a certain party stripe would not be  able to criticize public 'men. Talbot Liddosdalc i.s out of place in  this enlightened ago, and should  have been born dining tho icginie  of the family compact when people  were deprived of there franchises  and liberties. Talbot Liildcsdale  objects to the publication in the  Mail of clippings taken from ICng-  lish newspapers, which aro not in  favor of Lord Dundonald's actions,  yet, so far as J know, the same  gentleman has never raised a protest against clippings being inserted in the Herald, taken from the  graveya 1 d of old consorv .ttive news-  Placer Operations Progressing ;-  Messrs,F 15. Wells and J. I. Wood-  row returned last week from a visit to  tho placer properly in which they are ���������  interested on the old channel of Camp-  Creek, in the Big Bend, and brought  a nice sample of cold with them,  proving the striking of auriferous  ground. Fiom' appearances it is believed there is considerable gold in  the flume, though no clean-up has yet  boon made, and this gold has boon got  merely by ground-siiiicing. There is  no hydraulic plant on the property as  yet, though the property is properly  a hydraulicing one.t The work done  this season by Raymond Allen has  revealed extensive bed-- of gravel from  which good results are anticipated.  If. Howard has started operations  for the season on the ground he has  been operating at Smith Creek.  A large falling off in the anplc crop  is reported fiom Ontario. The plum  crop will be a total failure in many  places, and more paiticularly tho  northern - sections of the province,  whore many oichaids were killed by  the hard weather of last winter. The  general crop will not be 50 per cent  of tbe last one. Pear-, vviil also be a  light crop, and peaches ton, will yield  poorly.
