The Province has an interesting notice of a* little book published in London   in  1862, entitled   "Cariboo,   the  newly-discovered gold fields of British  Columbia, the richest gold.deposits in  the   world   yet  discovered,   fully described by a Returned Digger^ who has  made his   fortune /there and advises  others to. go and, do likewise."    The  author says "Cariboo was discovered  late in the season of last year, but its  riches  were   not   developed   till   this  summer."   In May the population had.  reached 1,400, and the number was constantly being augmented by diggers  from other places in the province and  the States. r On the 9th June .-������8,000 in  gold  was brought  down   to "Victoria  from Cariboo, besides the runs carried  by 35 men who came down on business  and  who,  it is supposed, returned to  the mines.   The same day ������8,000 more  arrived, some of which was from Cariboo.   These receipts awakened confidence, and! the rush to the diggings  began to be immense.   The gold was  all coarse, granulated, gravelly stuff,  mixed with pellets and pehbles of pure  metal of considerable size. ���������The water  in tne creeks rose with'tlie melting of  the snow,  flumes were carried away,,  trails  were   rendered   impassable, by  slides, and food, became' scarce.    Provisions were carried on the backs of  Indians, who were paid $10 a day for  packing.   Men who had no claims of  their, own, were hired to work at &\  and ������1 12s. a day, all found.   Flour  was 38c. per lb.,,bacon' 75c., beans,40c.,  tea $1.50, sugar and coffee 75c.   Single  meals at the restaurants, consisting of  beans and bacon and a cup, of bad coffee, cost $2.

He was' passing  under the name of Charles Slawser.  ' A grand total of 88,358,000 bushels  of wheat in the United State's and  Canada on the ' 1st ult.' means, says  Bradstreet, a gain of about 18,000,000  bushels compared with Sept. 1st last  year, when the increase, as compared  with Sept 1, 1892, was about 24,000,-  000 bushels.  , " *  A diamond weighing not less than  971-f carats, and said to be the largest  in the world, has been found in the  Jagensfontein mines, Cape Colony, by'  Inspector Edward Jorgansen. It was  brought to the Cape of Good 'Hope  well guarded, and put aboard a warship to be taken to London and deposited in the Bank of England.  Tho colossal globe in the Government building at the World's Fair has  been sold to the South Park Commissioners for .$10. The globe, which is  20 feet in diameter and covered with  statistical information, cost the Government ������13,000, and was prepared  as an exhibit of the.Department of the  Interior. The Government' was glad  to get $10 for it.  The sporting public is agape over  the enormous amount of money won  by H. McCalmont's four-year-old Isinglass. Since the colt appeared on the  turf his winnings in stakes alone have  amounted to ������56,935, heating the record of the Duke of Portland's Donovan, whose winnings footed up ������55,-  154. Mr. McCalmont also backed his  horse heavily and won a large fortune.  M. P. Ketchum, the well-known  owner of tho famous trotting dog Doc,  was found dead in an orchard at  Brighton, Ont., last Saturday. There  wai a bullet wound in his right temple,  and by his side lay the revolver with  whicli he had ended his life.

Atlantic is one'of  the cheapest ways of travelling at the  present day. The distance from Liverpool to New York is 3,170 miles, and  steerage passengers are not only carried  this distance, but provided during the  journey,with food and lodgings for the'  sum of thirty-six shillings by one line,  nnd forty' shillings by another. .The  companies,-out of the passage money,  pay'the passenger's, fare to' Liverpool,  averaging, say, twelve shillings, and a  commission of six shillings for the ship-.,  ping agent. Deducting these sums, and  four shillings, the cost "of the outfit, the  amountrreceived by the ship is thirteen-  and-six in one case, and seventeen-and-  six in the other for conveying the  traveller 3,170 miles and his maintenance for six or seven days.���������London  Answersi       a  ���������S  7, *   ADDING TO THE NAVY.

LUMBER FREIGHT RATES.   :  - The Selkirk Record says: "The  lumber trade here is likely to be seriously injured, if not destroyed altogether. From Rat .Portage to Winnipeg, which is 133 miles, the freight rate  is 10c per ' 100 lbs. for- lumber. . Now  from Selkirk to Winnipeg, a distance  of 24 miles, or less than one-sixth the  haul, the lumbermen have to pay 6c.  This is going to affect the lumber interests here considerably."  WW   II.  McWhirrell Was Not Hanged.  Sheriff Brody received a telegram  last Sunday from the Department of  Justice announcing that McWhirrell's  sentence was commuted to imprisonment for life. The prisoner was overjoyed on hearing the news, though he  said all along he would rather hang  than go to the penitentiary.  Why it Would Not Weep.  An eccentric old gentleman, who  lived in a small country village in Lancashire, was seized with a predisposition to prepare for his latter end. One  of his first acts was to purchase a grave  in the churchyard. He then erected a  headstone, on which.he had written  the usual "In memoriam," leaving out  only the date of his death. In the  centre of the grave he planted a weeping willow tree, which had been grown  from a common stock, on which was  grafted a scion of pendant habit. Tho  scion died, and the stock &enl forth its  ordinary branches, which, despite tht-.  old man's efforts, refused to grow towards the ground. In a rage he sought  out the man who supplied him with  the tri>������.'. "You scamp," he said, "that  tree's not the proper sort. It doesn't  w*eep at all 1 '* " How can it wi'ep,"  aski'd the rtian, -' when there's nobody  buried under it? The tree isn't a fool."  Thi' old genilciii.-cii \> as '-ati-'llc-'l.  Byron N. White, general manager of  the Slocan Star mine, has been interviewed by a representative of the  Spokesman-Review. He says the Nakusp & Slocan railroad will be running,  its trains into Three Forks inside of  two ,weeks. Continuing, he says the  Slocan country is the most prosperous  section of the entire Northwest. Three  Forks'is rebuilding rapidly, and no log  houses are being' put up this time. It  -already contains, several handsome  frame buildings, and the railway company will immediately erect a good  station, freight warehouse and roundhouse. The road is well supplied with  rolling stock. They have two engines,  a passenger coach, a composite baggage  and smoking car, and plenty of flat  cars, some of which are now being converted into box cars. It will be in good  shape to handle freight and passenger  traffic all winter.   ,. '  The prospects for business for the  road this year ar<������ good. The output of  the mines this", winter will be more  than, double- the entire output of the  country up to date. The Grady group  on Four Mile Creek is shipping 4.0 tons  **a'day to the railway at Wilson Creek  by steamer from- Silverton. .Tiiis ore  goes to Omaha via Revelstoke and the  C.P.R. The Fisher Maiden is also getting ready to ship a lot of high-grade  dry ore. ' ���������  The Three Forks people are building  a wagon road to the Idaho basin. This  will serve the Idaho, Alamo, St. John,  Cumberland, Democrat, YoungT)omin-  ion, Queen Bess and many other mines.  The output from this one basin this  Vinter .should' be not less than 3,000  tons. The .Mountain Chief will ship  probably 700 tons.' Finch & Campbell  are making a trail to and erecting winter quarters atrthe Wonderful, and will  ship 500 tons., On the", south fork of  Sandon Creek the;Ruth, which has  already shipped one carload, and the  Willis group, owned by Moore," Humphreys & Blackaller, on' which 30 men  are at work, will also-, Ih* heavy  shippers.  ' The Slocan Star- has 850 "ton's stored  at Three Forks, and more will, be sent  from the mine .as soon as snow falls.  l"be output from the miue this winter  will be -1,000 -tons* or - more.4' "On -the-  Noble Fjve'group they" are'"'mining  and sacking ore, aud will probably ship  2,000 tons. The Deadman is being  opened upj .and" will make big shipments, as will the Reco,' which should  lie good for 1,000 tons or so. The Blue-"  bird has been worked all summer, and  will have from 500 to 700 tons to ship.  S. S. Burley has put up new cabins at  the Payne, and will ship from 300 to  500 tons. The Idaho No. 2 and Dunder-  berg will make good-sized shipments  .like their neighbors. The McDonald  Bros, are in shape to ship 500 to 700  tons, and the Dardanelles and other  big mines in that vicinity will be large  producers, but their ore will probably  go out by way of Kaslo. Mr.'White  cautions men against going to the Slocan in search of employment, as there  are quite enough thereto do the work.  COLGATE'S REMAINS FOUND.  The Missoulian publishes a sensational story of the recovery and burial  of the remains of George Colgate, the  deserted eoofc of the notorious hunting  party.headed by William E. Carlib,  son of General Carlin, late commander  of the department of the Columbia,  U. S. A. -The discovery was made  about August 23, by Lieut. Elliott,  eight miles below the spot where the  desertion occurred on the Clearwater  River. All that remained of Colgate's  body was a thighbone and one leg,'  these being gnawed and mangled by  the wild beasts infesting that region.  It is presumed that the balance of the  remains were carried away by animals  into the mountain fastnesses or'washed  away by high water. At the same spot  were also found a , match box, fishing  line and other articles ' identified" as  Colgate's property. The remains were,  interred at Lower Hot Springs, on the  north fork of the middle fork of the  Clearwater. Lieut. Elliott was sent  out on this mission hy the present commander of the department of the  Columbia, to which official he will  make ������ full report,' there being many  points tending to prove that Colgate's  desertion by the Carlin party was  cowardly in the extreme.     u    ,  ��������� THE "S00" CANAL.   ,'  ��������� The "trial opening" of the "Soo" canal took place last week, when the  locks were' filled with water through  the sluices made in the dams protecting the gates. The dams were not removed, but there is ' little doubt that  the work will stand the whole pressure  of the water. Mr. John Haggart, Min-,  ister of Railways and Canals, and Mr.  Colliugwood. Schreiber, his' deputy,  were present, and ,a large crowd, of  spectators also witnessed the blending of the' waters through Canada's  new waterway. The completion of the  "Soo" canal gives Canada an unbroken  line of water connection from the head  of Lake Superior to the Atlantic ocean.  Heretofore this country' has been obliged to rely upon the United States canal  at the "Soo," but we are now quite independent in that respect. -    ��������� - -  7 V, Blaek- Diphtheria In Ontario. A(,  , ,An outbreak'of black .diphtheria vis  causing consternation in Erin Town:  ship,"fti the'eonnty of Wellington, Ont.*  A half dozen deaths have already been  reported. The unfortunate ones in  nearly every case have succumbed after an illness of only a few hours. In  some cases whole families have been'  stricken;, and it is feared that the pestilence will spread -to the neighboring  towns.   ' Insufficient  isolation   is  thc  ��������������� ���������������.       ������        ��������� "^  cause of the prevalence of the plague.  It was allowed to spread with alarming rapidity before. its deadly consequences were fully realized, and means  taken to cheek its inroads.

The Le Roi's air compressor is ready  for work, and in about two weeks the  force of miners will be increased.

The building  faces the town aud is in a commanding  position. , ,  At the O.K. mine, Trail Creek, another tunnel is being run to crosscut  the veins. A concentrator is to lie  erected shortly, it having been ordered  from Denver.  Eight feet of rich-looking gold-cop- .  per sulphuret ore has been struck on1?

'- V   "     - , .,  The Canadian Girl.    ���������  This is Max O'Rell'a description of  the Canadian woman in his new book:  "A happy combination of, her English  and" American sisters. She has the  physical beauty, the tall, graceful figure,-and thc fine complexion of the former, allied to the decided bearing, the  naturalness, the frank glance and the  piquancy of the latter. If, added to  these, one could have the shrewd common sense and the irresistible charm of  the Parisiennc, the result would be a  really ideal woman. The amount of  out-door exercise taken by Canadian  women in their winter games and pastimes goes far to explain the beauty of  their complexions.., The air of Canada  is dry, tho houses are heated the same  way as American houses, yet these two  things, often advanced as tho cause of  the American belle's pallor, do not prevent the Canadian women from having brilliant complexions."  The director of the United States  mint has issued a notice that the superintendents of mints at Philadelphia,  San Francisco, New Orleans and, Carson will purchase, when presented in  sums of $3 and upwards, mutilated and  uncurrent United States silver coin "at  a price fixed by the director of the mint  for silver,contained in gold deposits."

They went up to the  C.P.R. main* line-at Revelstoke, along  it eastward and back through the Duncan and Lardeau countries to Kaslo.

SITTING OF THE LEGISLATURE  ' Tiik Provincial Legislature will meet  for "the dispatch of business "'on the  12th November. The "business" is  presumed to be"'to devise ways and  means for replenishing the provincial  treasury. The exceptional expenses  incurred this year must have been a  heavy drain oii a limited purse, and as  there is so much work yet to be done  in the way of repairing the damages  wrought by the Into Hoods in various  parts of the province, it has been decided not to wait until "February, the  usual time of meeting. When here  last week the Premier did not think it  would be necessary to convene the  Legislature earlier than " usual,0 but  something of pressing importance has  been brought to his attention since  then. , The session will not be a long  one, and the members will have finished their labors long before Christmas.  A SILVER PLATFORM.  State  of  a   silver  The Republicans of the  Wa'Alngton' have adopted  platform as follows : ^   ',.  Resolved, that we are in favor of the  free and unlimited coinage of, silver,  produced from tlie mines of tlie United  States, at the ratio of 1 to 16.  From this it would appear that British  Columbia' will have'nothing to hope  for if the silver Republicans should  win at the next election. They iutend  .to limit the use of silver to the product  of,United States mines;"-"But the ex:  elusion of" British Columbia silver will  be a direct "injury to Americans, and  _ American   voters   at  that;  as nearly  every producing mine in the Slocan or  * Lardeau-is owned by American syndi-,  cates, companies or individuals.' The  American owners of British Columbia  silver mines should notify the Republicans of the State of Washington that  their platform is  not quite the thing,  for them.  ���������i       ������ *  PROCRASTINATION.

Besides, had  there been no Hood it is 'curious how  land on the other side of the l ivei ami.  almost" inaccessible could be worth live  times as much per acre as land in t he  townsite and easily accessible. Surely,  this surveyor must possess an oblique*"-  ly built brain.' But.the question will  obtrude���������Was it a mistake on his part,  or was it ?  * *  ������    *i  I saw in the Mail Some weeks ago an  article advocating incorporation, and  have been waiting ever since to sees if  the impression made was favorable^ or  otherwise. I' have been around considerably, but have not heard the incorporation idea mentioned- by either (inan,  woman or child; so 1 should say the  time ib not yet. Whether the average  citizen is afraid to state his views on  any matter of public interest, or whether he, is indifferent, I cannot, say, as, I  am notable to read people's thoughts,  even by the light of my lantern. , But  the absolute silence of  our townspeo-  file when anything in the line of pubic progress' is broached, is absolutely  refreshing.   Public questions may   be  discussed by our, leading men, but if so  it is with bated breath and hehitid closed doors/and I am supposed to be "on  this streets."   But if this idea of incor-  'poration ever does ripen into a   possibility, I would'suggest that the colony  of dogs be allowed to increase, so that  by the time .our, city, council are prepared to do business" there'will be^a  splendid crop* on which to levy, tho  dog tax. T would also like to see a substantial pound built, and I would stake  my lantern against the biggest fish yet  to"be caught in the Turn Turn, that the  impounding of stray pigs would be a  lucrative source of revenue to th cecity's  finances.      .     * .  * -* *  *  I have it on good authority that the  Lardeau wagon road will lie completed  right away, l. e., as soon as money can  he voted for it. There is no doubt whatever that the provincial treasury has  been empty for some time past', and it  was only on that account that work on  the wagon road was stopped before-its  completion. For my part I don't sec-  how the road i.s to lie finished this year.  If the Legislature,meets on the 12th  November and proceeds at once to vote  money for necessary expenditure all  through the province, it will in all likelihood be too lute to do anything in the  way of roadmnkiug in this pai t of the  country, as the snow, which almost iti-  varibly strikes the level on the 17th or  thereabouts, would put an end lo the  work just as it w.is commenced.* If tlie  Government will have things ready'to  commence work a������ soon as the snow is  gone iti tin'spring, theie will be' very  -���������   ���������    ' '      ���������    "       -���������-.-*-..������- -..-.   on  )>  EVEIT  Her children to, be strong and healthy.

In  all likelihood Mr. Gamble, the Domin-  ion.engiu.eer, has received instructions  txi procrastinate until the decision of  the Pri\y Council has been rendered  in the townsite dispute case, and in  the event of that decision being in  Ftirwell's favor the Dominion Government would not spend a cent on the  bunk. That's  of it.  alx>ut the whole truth  NOT DEAD  BY ANY MEANS.  Tiik British Pacific people are on  deck again, and it is rumored they intend submitting a very moderate (?)  proposition to the Legislature at its  ���������next session. A gentleman prominent  in Victoria financial circles was in  town this week, and in conversation  about this matter he said he bud been  informed on good authority that the  promoters of this railway would ask  for the guarantee of interest at 4 per  cent, on ������8,000,000 from the province  and a similar guarantee on ������3,000,000  from the city-of Victoria. If -such a  proposition is made to the House it  will undoubtedly lie treated -with tlie  .consideration' it deserve*, especially in  view of .the widespread distress existing as a result of the great floods this  summer, to say nothing of an empty  exchequer, lt is hardly likely that the  people of the Mainland, or of the  Island either, would care te have an  annual charge of $320,000 unloaded  up'ori them for the purpose of opening  up an uninhabited northern region.  ��������� Tbe same gentleman stated that  jsoiue of thc local   piomotors   bad gone  little delay in theShipment* of ore  that account.

Corbett wo s very  much displeased when shown thc despatch sent, out by John L. Sullivan, in  which the ex-champion accuses him of  beating about the bush. Corbett said :  "Sullivan had always more, mouth than  -���������our-age^ He is a quitter from the word  so, arid T do not want to have anything  to do with him. He is out of it, but one  thing, if T ever meet' Fitzsimmons in  the ring, J will make a better fight  > than Sullivan did with me. The Olympic Club does not .want a fight; they  want to make money out of me. Now,-  , I am not inclined to let. them until sure  thabFitzsimmons is somewhere in my  class, and this he can demonstrate by  knocking out O'Doimell. 1 am mak-'  jug good money now, and am not taking any risks xo please any number: of  soreheads."  "If Mr. Corbett will say that he doe*,  not want to meet me, I won't bother  him any more, but 1 will', claim the  heavy-weight championship of the  world and walk off with it," said Bob  "Fitzsiminoiis, champion middleweight,,  in answer to Corbetfc'sstatement. Robert was angry, ,and continued: "He?  wants ine to meet Steve. O'Doimell, eh?  Let. d'Donnell whip Maher or Tfall or  somebody. ] have defeated them. Then  -1 will light him." 1 shall '.t.iy to get a  light out of Corbett and I shall put'my.  list in bis face yet. There will be no  trouble about my putting up $25,000, if  that much i.s required."  JOHN LI'S $10,000 BELT.'  JohnL. Sullivan's $10,000 championship belt has   been   rni-*sing   for some  time from Charley Johnson's saloon at  Fulton and   Sands   streets, Brooklyn.  Jimmy "Murray, Johnson's bead bartender, grows indignant when asked if, it  is true, as reported, that Sullivan owes  so much money to the sporting saloon  keeper that the   belt   is  actually   " in  hock.". He has foi-.days.been declaring,  according to the Brooklyn Citizen, that  "the belt is, all   right, only   it's ' been  sent to be cleaned." Johnson varies this  , sometimes by saying : "I put the thing  in the safe.'the other.day and it hasn't  been brought out yet'.",, Mirny who have  seen the emblem   think   it is a "fake"  affair,'but it is   not.    It (lid   not   cost  $10,000, "as given out at the time, but it  did cost $0,500, and the diamonds in* it  are genuine.   It was,paid for by Sullivan's Boston's friends, and was presented to him in the opera house, in   that  city by the mayor, in July, 1884.    It is  ���������of solid gold   and was made in   New  .York. *��������� That it has been a big, adver-,  '   tisemen't for Johnson's saloon,-anyone-  can  well  imagine.     Sullivan   visited  - Johnson's place the other evening, but  ,���������   it wasn't the Sullivan of old.    It'was a  man unsliaved, with a beer-stained suit  ,    of grey clothes," a'soiled   shirt, and a  '    battered straw hat.    It wasn't the Sullivan,.who, in his heydey, used   to   be  followed by hundreds  on   his   rounds.  There wasn't the popping of corks and  shouts of laughter.    There wasn't  the  a   struggle for introductions   and   handshakings  and   privileges   of treating.  Therewas a curiosity to see   the   man  in , the   days of hi.s   downfalling���������that  was all.    Some of tho ever-loyal newsboys tried their lusty throats in cheering, but all their efforts were   lost  on  the man sodden with drink.   He was a  ' truly pitiable sight, and seemed  to realize, it after awhile himself.   An effort  he made at a snatch of a song while in  the little back room died away  on.' his,  swollen lips, and then he gagged.   The  glass of liquor be had on the table   before' him  became   offensive   and   was  dashed to the floor, glass and  all.    He  became lost to the world, and "Jimmy"  Murray, with an eye to business, helped him back to his cab.   Notuntil the  latter-had disappeared in a rattle over  the bridge did Johnson comedown the  stairs.    lie   had learned of Sullivan's  condition and didn't want to see him.

The  tide of the Pacific diiFers from that of  the Atlantic in being ��������� most irregular,  each i-uii differing more or less from  the one precediiiK it. ' On the coast of  Brili-h Columbia, opposite the landlocked harbor of Vmiconver, the ex-  f reim- from low tn high tide is 14 feet,  the runs being ahout as follows :  Starling at (he extreme high-water  maik, the tide drops 1-1 feet without  stopping, then tuni.-j and ri-ses 8 feet,  again drop-; -1 feet,' turn-, once more and  rial-- 10 feet, reaching the point of extreme high water. When it turns again  it goes duwn in two runs, and comes  hack in om* long one. and there are  thus four tides n iluy���������two long and  two hhort oner.. There arc fr.--quently  four and sometime-' six tides a day in  the upper part of the Firth of Forth.  These peculiarities are most conspicu-  ���������ms.about Ihe time of the mpring tides.  A second high Mile also occur** at  Southampton two hours after the first  regular tide.  One Cow Kills Thirty Head of Cattle.
