NELSON,   BEITISH   COLUMBIA,   SATUEDAY^   JULY  30,   1892,  U A YEAK.  -TOAD :��������� MOUNTAIN.  So much has the yjublic attention been taken  up with the Slocan country this year that Toad  mountain was in danger of being forgotten, but  the opening of the season for prospecting and  doing assessment work has put this out of the  question. For immediate development and encouraging prospects of production Toad mountain still holds its' place as the first camp in the  country. First comes the certainty of the  development on a large scale of the Silver King.  This of itself is sufficient to dim*use a feeling of  encouragement through the whole camp and  give an impetus to development work throughout the district. At present the only industry  on the( Silver King properties is the, cutting of  timber for building purposes. This work is pro-,  gressing well, and the surface of the Kootenay  Bonanza is /littered wit h fine sticks of timber  which have been cut and barked and left to dry  in order that they may be utilized this fall.  The owners of the dandy are ���������..���������busy, with the  preparation^ of the t ownsite of Fredericton.  Fredericton forms the apex of a triangle of  which the centre lines of the Dandy and the  Silver King form the base. It is thus in the  most favorable location for t<)Wiisite jpjirposes  and whatever settlement can be/made in the  immediate neighborhood of the mines will undoubtedly be there. One building is already in  course of erection and several lots are bespoken  for building purposes. The Dandy itself is  -showing .better with every shot, and when a  greater depth is reached (the tunnel is only 120  feet down on the dip of the vein) even be Iter/results are expected.  "Work is progressing rapidly on the Grizzly  Bear and Silver Queen. On the Silver Queen a  boarding house and offices are being built.  A strike,, which is attracting considerable attention, has been made some distance south of  the Silver Queen. The name of the claim is the <  Anchor, located by Gay Nelson. The croppings  were small, buUby stripping the lode a considerable body of ore has been discovered, its character being somewhat similar to the. surface croppings of the Kootenay Bonanza. It is too early  4to know anything certain of the value of this  discovery,- but as considerable development  work will be done on it at once it will be tested  to some extent before long.  Another claim on' which "assessment work has  vielded themost .promising results is the Gol-  c Sen dale, which lies to the west of and parallel  with the Dandy.    There -is- now one of the best  surface showrings on the hill on this claim.  ;:... Altogether everyone interested in Toad mountain  is, full  of enthusiam and activity, and it  only requires a little encouragement and a beginning of production to make Toad mountain j  "hot" only the most active; whichitis already, but  the   most productive  mining  centre  in   West  Kootenay.^        ,        BJaBtcr Street Bridge.  Ill order to give sufficient room for traffic, it  is proposed to build an apron from Ward street  on the Baker street bridge. Would it not be  better to widen the-present bridge and lower it.  a couple of feet? The additional cost would.be  small, and the resultant benefits large,  Nelson School Site.  The appeal of the school trustees to colonel  Baker was referred by him to the land department, and. acting on its instructions assistant  secretary Pope informed the trustees that the  who-le of block .32. had been reserved for school  purposes and that the trustees were to he fully-  consulted as to the location of the building.  Acting on instructions the local authorities  stopped work on the building until the matter  was settled. It proved that to alter the present  site of t he school, after, so ���������much work had been  done, would cost $200, and the school trustees  did not feel justified in asking for this additional  expense, but they stipulated They should have  power to make the best disposition of the vacant  area of the block for school grounds.

Roberts went up the  river on the stea.mer Columbia, Tuesday of last  week. They were accompanied by two linemen , and it is supposed they were, surveyi ng  the prop(Jsed line of the railroad to Nelson.  The JLncJcy .Jim.  ,   J. B. Williams, owner of the famous.Lucky  Jim mine in the vicinity of Bear lake, has made  a sale with Joseph Young of Seattle, for $40,000.  This deal was /practically made several weeks  ago, and in speaking of it the other day 'mr.  Williams said that he regretted the bargain.  The vein has been cross-cut and 20 feet below  the discovery point it is said to be'30 feet wide.  The vein is one of the largest in the Slocan and  shows a large body of ore in the second extension. Mr. Young is enthusiastic over his bargain and says that the Slocan country is one of  the richest in America.  ���������-������������������'���������'-���������'; Am. Expert on .Slocan.  ,/���������  Professor G. W. Adrian, tlie well known mining expert of Minneapolis, has experted a large  ��������� number of mines in the  Kootenay district for  eastern   capitalists,   and   has  just   spent   four  months in the Slocan  district.    He has  given  the Slocan country a thorough and careful examination, .studying the formation closely, and  is   prepared   to say   that  it  is genuine  and  of.  lasting quality.    People who have brought out,  reports that the country is much-overrated'are'  men who have no interests there and who have:  been disappointed in an effort to secure a good  thing.

There are  at present 61   cases, the most  of   the   patients  doing well, and in the last official report no  deaths, no new cases and no suspects are reported.  Mayor Cope and his party received an ovation at Vancouver an their triumphant return  from Victoria, where the collective wisdom of  judges Begbie, Drake and Walkem had combined to make mr. justice Crease look cheap.  Seattle has raised the quarantine against Victoria, and it is expected that the other sound  cities will soon follow suit.  We have received the following from inessrs.  Keefer���������& Smith:  Victoria, B.C., July 22nd,TS92.  To the Editor of the Miner���������Sir: My  attention has been directed to an editorial paragraph on the first page of your issue of t he 10th  instant, under the heading" City of Columbia,."  As the surveyor, under whose personal supervision this townsite was laid out, I may consider myself as possessing a more accurate  knowledge of itsr characteristics than anyone  else/and am, therefore in a position to reply to  the paragraph authoritatively.  It is stated that " owners- of property. in the  townsite of Columbia, who wish to enjoy to the  full the magnificent sport obtainable by trolling  for trout over their lots,. should not delay their  visit longer than they can help, as towards the  end of this month, some of the corner stakes  will begin to show above water, when it will he  impossible to fish in any other wav than with a  "fly:." ';��������������������������� ' :-.:.:-.;;--,/ -."/;,    ���������".  To yourself and all others equally well acquainted with the locality, this paragraph will  appear in the light of a harmless joke.  To outsiders, however, a totally diiferent impression will be conveyed, from the very fact  that a prominent journal like The Miner published within a few miles Of the townsite, is the  ���������authority supporting it, and for their information I beg to state, .without;qualification, that  the paragraph is entirely, at variance with- the  truth, ������������������'../"' . /'.:'  .'    The townsite of Columbia,.' as laid out by me,  lies to the west of Pass creek, and contains in  all 102 acres.    Of this area.87 acres are above ;the  'level" of tlie  railway track  ahd are.entirely-beyond the/reach of any possibleoverflow of either  tlie   Columbia river or Pass creek.    Below the  level of the railway track/are 15 acres of open  'pi'airie'land, whicli are liable to annual floods of  /from  2 to ' 6   feet of water.    Notwithstanding  .this1 consider this' portion of the townsite as  valuable  as  any   other,: the cost of raising   its  elevation to a point above extreme high water  being.but a small;additional- charge on each lot.  The .whole   townsite,   when   completed,   will  cover an area of 310 acres, 102 acres east of Pass  g creek, and 203 acres west.    It mav be sal"e2v as-  suiued that the western division (to which your  paragraph does, not refer) will be flooded to no  greater extent than the eastern.    Therefore;'out  of a total of 310 acres there are no less than 2S0  acres which cannot at any time..be reached "by  overflow.    The Columbia & Kootenay  railway  passes  through the  whole  width of the town-  site, and instead of being carried continuously  on high trestles or embankments as would ob-  yiously  be  the  case,   were the!'townsite under.  water, its roadbed is exeated along side hills and  fiats.    The  are 2  trestles  in   all,   one   crossing  Pass creek, and one crossing,a narrow ravine, in  the side hill at. the extreme eastern boundary of  the townsite. ;  Further, the pioneer name : of. the townsite,  " Sproat's Landing," is universally known  throughout the province, and I do not think  that anyone will be found to say that any  greater submergence takes place in its vicinity  than I have indicated above,"or if it is said, that  any hearer- will credit the assertion. In justice  to the owners of the townsite, and to those who  have bought property in it, and to those who  may bedet erred by your paragraph from purchasing, I trust- you will give this communication  the fullest publicity possible.  H. B. Smith, P. L. S.  Gives TSiem I he lie.  Jim Wardner,  who has been recently paying  a visit to Spokane, is enthusiastic in his praises  of the Slocan Country.    " I   am   aware  of   the  fact."  he says,   ''that adverse reports are made  in Spokane concerning Slocan, but the truth  can be learned by going into it." He has ore  now waiting at Nakusp for shipment to  Spokane.  ���������M**^ttMaw^^  ���������!di^ii^isSMmMmmii!mmii!mmmMmmmmMmmgm  MwmnM,WMmmmw THE MINEK:    NELSON,   B.   0.,  SATUEDAY,  JULY 30,  1892.  ���������KEA������I    OF   THE    WOKLIVS    NEWS.  There are said to be 1000 so-called haunted  houses in London.  Natural gas has been discovered in the district  of Wells, in Upper Austria.  Australia has shipped to Europe in the past  26 weeks 4,440,000 bushels of wheat, against 9,-  144,000 bushels in the Corresponding time last  year.  In Peru it is proposed to check the rapid decline in the value of silver by temporarily stopping its coinage.  One of the Parisian newspapers is reported to  be experimenting with type made of glass, with  gratifying results.  An Englishwoman was recently fined/for permitting her 2 dogs to draw her baby carriage on  the streets of /London.  During last month there were launched from  Scotch ship-building yards 27 vessels, aggregating 38,426 tons.  Streams of burning lava are flowing down the  sides of Mount Etna.  A report from Zanzibar says the Yanyembe  tribe has revolted and threatens the German  forces. *  The Indiana oil-field has received a boom by  three wells, just drilled in near Portland, which  produce 500 barrels a day.  The German organs of Bismarck have begun  to weaken. They are satisfied their attack on  the Government has failed.  So far 96 bodies have been taken from the  ruins caused by the breaking of a glacier at St.  Gervais-les-Bains in Savoy.  New evidence in the Maybrick poisoning case  at London has been discovered, and it is thought  it will cause a pardon to be granted mrs. May-  brick.  It is probable that in the course of the autumn  the betrothal of princess" Victoria Melita of  Edinburg and the Duke of Augustenberg will  be officially announced.  The Sultan of Morocco's troops, who are endeavoring to suppress the insurrection at Algiers, are committing many lawless and cruel  acts, and Christians and Jews are much alarmed  for their safety.  The King of Siam has excellent reasons for  never allowing mrs. Siam to leave the children  with him while she goes out shopping. There  are 84 of them.  M. Jacquot, French consul at Leipsic, Germany, who entered a cafe while intoxicated and  called a number of customers "dirty German  pigs," has been recalled.  The Barings have further reduced their liability to the Bank of England by ������5,500,000  ($27,500,000), the proceeds of the sale of Buenos  Ayres western mortgage debentures.  The young  king  of   Spain   has  developed a  taste for circus business.    He escaped from his ���������  attendants  the  other day, made his  way to a  circus,   and   when  found   was   dressed   in   the  clown's clothes.  A grand hunt is proposed in the province of  Kastroma, Russia, to destroy the wolves which  in phenomenal numbers and with great boldness and savagery have attacked the cattle and  even men in the region.  Mr. Rhodes, the Cape Colony premier, has  introduced into the legislature a franchise bill  which raises the electoral qualificatipn from  ������25 to ������75, and disqualifies illiterates, except  those already on the register.  The Austrian government has dissolved 16  students' clubs on the ground that they had he-  come political associations contrary to law.  The police seized a number of books and papers.  The mainspring of the government's action  was the course of the students in giving such  an enthusiastic reception to Bismarck.  A notorious bush-ranger, a colored man  named Russell, has lately died in the Bendigo  hospital. He was known in the early fifties as  "Black Douglas, the bush-ranger," and had a  part, in many escapades throughout the middle  districts of Victoria, especially in the mining  localities known as the "Middle Diggings."  Land in Hampshire is now selling at a rate  far lower than has ever been heard of in England, within at least the last 5 or 6 generations.

NEWTON, Agent.  offered at ������8 per acre, and circulars have been  received from authorized agents there stating  that they are ready to sell farming land at from  ������2 to ������6 per acre, the higher price carrying  with it a convenient residence. Some time ago,  it is also reported, a good Hampshire estate was  sold at $5 an acre, including valuable timber  and underwood.  The captain of the steamer Catterhun reports that on June 29th he called at Timor and  found there a Dutch steamer that had left Great  Sangir Island, olf Madagascar, on June 17th.  A few hours after her departure a terrible explosion was heard from the direction of the  Sangir group, and this was followed shortly  afterward by showers of ashes, which covered  the deck of the steamer and darkened the  whole atmosphere. When the clouds had  cleared away nothing was visible on the horizon  but masses of vapor that extended for many  miles. Great Sangir, which before the explosion had been in full sight, could not be seen.  There were six sailing vessels anchored off the  island, and it is thought that they must have  been destroyed. The captain also slates that  the island of Luzon, the largest of the Philippine group, recently suffered severely from an  eruption, the fire from which caused widespread  devastation.

BUCKE  LAW    AND   CONVEYANCING |  OFFICF !|i  Office near w L   1  1 v^ XL.  Steamboat Landing. KASLO,   B.C. TflSE.  :PIBJKE.RT������M*S   SSs������o  Many months ago a certain detective, known  the world Over for his unscrupulous .methods,  hut consummate art, ran afoul of Bob and Billy  Pinkerton, the shrewd detectives of the foriuid-  able Pinkerton association, says a Pittsburg  correspondent of the Philadelphia Press. This  detective was William Norris, of Springfield,  Ohio, who was charged by the Pinkertons with  staiiding in with bunco men, fixing the jobs,  locating the criminals and dividing the swag....  .���������Shortly after that little affair in Chicasro de-  tective Norris was engaged in the great Dayton,  Ohio, $10,000 di am of id robbery. As is usual in  any case on which this clever fellow is detailed,  he had run the diamond robbers down and was  '" about to make the arrest when he himself was  arrested on the charge of burglary and assault  and battery. He was taken to jail, where he  learned his prosecutors were the Pinkertons.  The Chicago agency had also been detailed on  the diamond case and learning Norris had run  down the game, arrested him,,it is alleged, that  they might secure the honor for thernselves.  Norris is known everywhere, and bv securing  heavy bond he was released and finally landed  his game and recovered the diamonds.  Though successful against the formidable  Pinkertons, Norris swore revenge, and events  soon turned that sweet morsel into his mouth.  With the first murmurings from Homestead  there came talk of Pinkertons, and with talk of  them came a perfect organization among the  men to protect themselves.  One night a message was sent from the Girard  house, Allegheny, to Hugh O'Donneil, chairman, and three other members of the advisory  committee at Homestead. The message requested an , interview and was signed by Wil-  ' ham T. Norris.  Though the man was feared and hated by all  labor organizations on account of the part he  took in the great Hocking Valley strike, still  his request demanded attention in such times  as these and a delegation of the leaders of the  men called at the hotel. They were closeted  with the detective for three hours and it was  here these men came to an agreement.  Norris, therefore, first gave the astonished  leaders positive information of the mo vein en ts  of the Pinkertons, and said they were preparing  to capture the works in the event of a strike.  Norris acknowledged that, he had fought labor  bitterly during the Hocking Valley affair, but  pleaded his business as an excuse. He now desired to do labor a good turn, and in proof of  his sincerity 'placed $1000 in the bank, to be  forfeited if he were lying.  Then came a bold proposition worthy of the  man. The Pinkertons were forming, and lie  desired a level-headed, cool and bright man  from the advisory to go with him to Chicago.  Here he would have the labor leader enlisted as  a Pinkerton man, who was to go with the  guards to Homestead.  The object of all this was to balk the Pinkertons and place the key to the situation in the  hands of the labor leaders. This proposition  paled the strikers' cheeks, but there was no  time for delay or faltering. Just such a man as  Norris wanted was chosen from the ranks of  the men. His name may develop later, but that  he served his purpose the sequel told.  Norris, with the young labor leader, went to  Chicago,   where,   through   other powerful  in  fluences, the striker enlisted with the Pinkerton  force. From that .time on the Homestead leaders were perfectly informed as to the "movements of the Pinkertons.  Bob Pinkerton suspected treachery, but could  not locate it, and in order to surprise even the  suspected spy, the force was ordered to Homestead 2-1 hours '-before, intended. This rather  ���������puzzled'-the striker spy. All in embers of the  posse were watched and no opportunity given  anyone to telegraph or play false during the  whole journey to this city.  When the detectives left the train, however,  the time came. In the confusion of leaving the  train and entering the "fatal barges moored at  the island, one member of the guards was  'missed, together with a roster of the men and  other valuable data belonging to the Pinkertons. fr  The same roster and data was handed governor Pattison by Hugh O'Donneil during the  executive's conference with the strikers in Har-  risburg.  Leaying the barges, the spy ran all the way  to this city, arriving at-the telegraph office in  an exhausted condition. Outside the Postal  telegraph office a scene occurred between the  striker and an employ e of the Carnegie firm  placed there to intercept messages if possible.  The man was threatened and, coaxed and  offered any sum to be silent, but atl.a. m. he  entered the office and telegraphed:  Hugh O'Donnell, Homestead, Pa.: A posse of 300  Pinkertons left here at 12:30 this morning in two barges  towed by the Little Bill. 11.  This ends the secret chapter. Instead of surprising the men and capturing the works they  were met by an army of 4000 men, repulsed and  forced to surrender. The strikers were victorious, the Pinkertons overthrown, and Norris  had accomplished his object in placing on  record the first defeat suffered by the Pinkertons in the hitherto unbroken record of victories.

KUITOJKf AL   REMARKS;'  The recent visit of inr. JamesE. Steen, publisher', and mr. R. E. Gosnell, British Columbia  editor ot the Winnipeg 'Commercial, to Nelson  lias resulted in the issue of a West  Kootenay  edition of this paper.    The illustrations are photo-lithographs from   pictures supplied by. Nee-  land Bros.    The letter-press has  been carefully  compiled, and does full justice to every town in  the country.    The proofs might, have been more  carefully read,   it is  true,   but this  is  a fault  likely to be urged by the technical reader only,  and does not affect the general excellence of the  reading matter. , __^   We make no excuse for quoting the  following general summary of the country :  "'Primarily,   of course,   railways,   roads and  navigation are the sinews of a mining country,  or to. use a simile that would be more appropriate, they are what arteries and veins are to  the human body.    These, of course, are coming  as fast as the country justifies it.    People in a  new country are always impatient in these matters.    But when   we consider that   the   West  Kootenay is practically only 5 or 6 years old the  development already made is really wonderful.  Governments  and large corporations proverbially move slowly,  but in truth after all, what  they have done here cannot be quoted as a fair  illustration of the correctness of the saying, and  the indications are that in a year or two the district will  be as well off for means of communication as any known mining region.  "��������� The "sinews of war " are of course capital  to develop the mines. That is coining in fairly  well, but practical, level-headed experienced  men with money are required, not to buy real  estate or speculate/but to carry on the business  of the country���������to mine. The field is a grand  one. Come anyway and see, is good advice.  The chances of investment in all lines are excellent for the right man.  " Prospectors and miners are not specially invited because they naturally gravitate to the  mining holds and will get there anyway.  " One requires to lie careful in giving advice,  to laborers and mechanics. A country may be  good for a certain number, who can be steadily  and'profitably employed, but if everyone rushes  in seeking employment the market is glutted  and depression follows. The supply is usually  equal to the demand and a laborer or mechanic  must always take chances. At the present time  no honest, willing man seems to be suffering,  but there are plenty of jobs.  - " For clerks, book-keepers, and that class of  settlers who are looking for gilt-edge occupations or money to turn up in some mysterious  way the country has hung out a card labelled  " not wanted." Not that the polite occupations  are  absent,   but   where  one position is vacant  there are many applicants. If a clerk or bookkeeper or even a gentleman of no occupation  with education and adaptability about him is  willing to turn his hand to 'anything and be prepared to rough it if necessary by working on  street contracts, or doing anything else that  may offer, he may prove himself a useful man  and make a success of it finally, as manv others,  have done ; but if he be afraid to soil his hands  and regards labor as dishonorable and degrading, he had better remain where he is and exist  on dignity and good uianners.  ''There is, too, a danger of overstocking the  country swith traders and business men.    Just  now there are plenty of merchants and traders  for the business done.  ..It-is. true that wherever  one goes we find the merchants doing a good  trade and handling a wonderful lot of goods.  It  is surprising how substantial the business men  are for a new country,  and the amount of the  "turn-over."    It would be difficult, as a class, to  find better or more well-to-do business men any-  where ; but at this season they are in the hey- '  clay of their success, and by-and-by the winter  comes  when  the  district is  shut off-from the  world, and business, figuratively speaking, hy-  bernates.    It   requires large   transactions   and  good  profits  while  it lasts  to even up on the  whole year.    The trader in the Kootenay country  wants considerable  capital,   because it   is  necessary to  carry a large  stock  of goods to  carry him over the long peripd'between shipments and to cover the demand for the goods  necessary in a general store,   which are nameless  in  variety.     It is  a  country,  too,   where  plenty of cash  is  required.    Everybody being  comparative strangers  to  each  other,   nobody  trusts his neighbor too far, which is wise in any  country.    There is, therefore, little room at the  present for new business or more business men.  As the  country  develops  the  population  will  naturally create not only new business,  but a  complexity of business.    How fast the country  will grow, or to what extent it will develop, is  just  what  the new arrival must take chances  on."  NOTARY  PUBLIC.

An old prospector, an efyewitness, .'tells1 of the  doings at Old Mission :  "I knew all the evening there vvas going to  be trouble.    There was a drunken Italian in the  crowd of non-union inen, and he kept talking  all the time about the Miner's union boys, but  no one seemed to pay rnuch attention to'-him.  The non-union men stood around all afternoon  and   evening .arguing   and   drinking,   but   no  trouble occurred until about dusk in the evening when two men came down the track���������they  were both miners' union men���������and ordered the  non-union men to get out/of town.    A few minutes three other men came up armed with.guns  and-"-told them to get.    The non-union men   began  to run and scattered in all -directions"and  these  men who ordered  them away  began   to  shoot but their guns were pointed to the sky  and they evidently did not want to hit anyone.  " Just then another squad of men that I supposed   were   union   inen   came running up and  when  they  got right at my side they levelled  their guns and shot straight' at a  crowd of the  fleeing men   who   were  a short distance, down  the track.    I saw  some of the  men drop When  this  volley  was  fired and I am of course sure  that several were hit.    They could not have escaped from that volley of bullets '.'fired directly  into them.    There were no old men in the party  that did  the  shooting���������they   were all  men  of  from 22 to 30 years of age.    I did not know any  of them, though I am pretty sure some of them  were not miner's ; they did not have the appearance of men who had worked very hard in the  mines.    They seemed nervous  and  one  young  fellow in-particular was very much excited.   He  came running up to where I was standing and  was armed with a Winchester.   Tie saw a man  down the track about 100 yards  running.    He  opened lire, and the man he had shot, at gave a  spring into the air and fell back as if mortally  wounded.    The young devil with the Winchester fired 2-more shots at the prostrate body.    T^  saw the whole business fromits beginning to its  end, but of course there is always so much excitement at a time like that that it easy to make  mistakes."      -���������  -IMMftC;    NEWS   OF   THE    W<������35������IV  The United States treasury now holds $112,-  000,000 in free gold, and is gradually accumulating gold coin at commercial centers for the'purpose of meeting the demand for small notes in  the west, for the movement of crops.  A drilling match has been arranged between  '������>'  William Paige of Butte, and .Peter Teague, one  of the men who won the championship at Helena on Sunday. Each man is to strike 15 minutes and have a turner ; drills must be -of ������ steel,  with bits of a size no smaller, but it is the privilege of both men to have their drills smaller  than the size specified, beginning at the bit and  extending toward the head of the drill for a distance of four inches. An attempt on the part  of either to use drills smaller than specified in  the articles of agreement will cause him to lose  the match and forfeit the amount of the-stakes.  Much has been said of late as to the prospects  of Kamloops as a mining center, but never have  the prospects of the inland capital looked so  bright as at the present time, and it is evident  that the expectations of the most sanguine will  be more than realized. Prospectors have been  busy for the last 2 or 3 weeks and, as a result, a  rich discovery which assays $138 per ton, silver  and copper, has been made on Copper creek, 14  miles west of Kamloops, while at Grand prairie,  35 miles away, a discovery of what might be  termed a mountain of silver and gold has been  made, one ledge being 25 feet wide and traceable over a mile, many other equally as good locations having also been made. There is great  excitement in the locality, and the miner's are  flocking to the1 district, 3 wagon loads having  arrived from Vernon last evening.  The wagon of a prospecting party, which set  out from San Diego for the Cocopah country, has  been found on the desert under circumstances  tending to arouse fears for the safety of the  prospectors. S. I. Breedlove, his son, and a  capitalist named Fish, left San Diego early in  June, since which time no tidings have been returned from them. In the wagons were found  their coats, rifles and baggage, but no trace of  the men themselves or their mules.    The tracks  OFFICE,  victoria; B.C.

A desperate and almost successful attempt  'was made July 23rd to assassinate Henry Clay  Frick, chairman of the Carnegie Steel Company,  Limited. His assailant was Alexander Berk-  man, a Russian Jew, who came to Homestead  from New York with the evident intention of  killing Frick. It was a few minutes before 2  o'clock, this afternoon when a young man  entered the elevator in the Chronicle building  and asked to be let off at Frick's office. The  young man had been a frequent visitor in the  past few days, and the elevator boy thought  nothing of the request.  Before the man came in mr. Leishman, business partner  of   mr.  Frick,   had   entered   the  office, and  was  holding; a  private   conference.  The office   boy noticed  the  man come in hitr-  riedlv from  the outside and pass  through the  railing,   but   before   he   could   stop   him    the  stranger   had   entered the  private   office.    He  sprang to within about five feet of Frick and,  quickly drawing a revolver, pulled the trigger.  The first  cartridge   did  not explode,   but   the  second   shot   entered the back of Frick's neck,  glanced down and passed out below the armpit.  Frick:jumped to a window on Fifth avenue and  tried to   open   it,   but   could   not.      Berkman  rushed up to him again and fired, the ball entering   the   left   side   of  the   neck   and,   passing  around,  lodged under the  right ear.    At  this  moment mr. Leishman threw himself on the assassin  and struggled to get  the revolver.    He  clutched the   barrel and turned the muzzle up  as  the man pulled  the trigger again,   the ball  entering the ceiling.    The desperate man  then  drew a dagger and attempted to stab Leishman ;  Frick  saw  the  gleam  of  steel,   and,  although  staggered   by   the   shock   of   the   wound   and  bleeding profusely,   jumped  between   the inen  and  seized  Berkman's  arm.    The latter  freed  himself from Leish man's grasp and plunged the  dagger into Frick's right side just above the hip,  making an ugly wound three inches long.    He  made another lunge,   and this  time the knife  struck higher up, but the point struck a rib and  glanced   off   without   inflicting   much   injury.  Twice again  was the knife thrust at Frick, but  he   was  merely   scratched,    By  this  time   the  office clerks and depxity sheriff May had entered.  May had  drawn a revolver, and was about to  shoot Berkman in the back, when Frick cried  out:     '"Don't  kill   him,      We've   got   him   all  right.    Leave him to the law."   The man broke  away and tried to escape, but was secured and  taken to the police station.  Later advices state that Frick's splendid constitution is standing him in.good stead. The  surgeons will not say that he is out of danger,  as it will be several days before the crisis can be  regarded as having safely passed, but at the  same time they are free to express the opinion  that if indications count for anything he will  not only pull through, but that in half the time  usually required to such cases by medical jurisprudence.  L  Ate a Whale.  The Makah Indians at Neah Bay are feasting  on a whale which they killed 60 miles out at sea  last   week.     They  were  unable to handle  the  carcass on the ocean, and engaged the tug Tyee  to tow it into Neah Bay. The blubber, oil and  whalebone will be quite an acquisition to the  Indians' larder, and are valued at about $1200.  In early times it was a general practice for the  Indians to go many miles out to sea in canoes  on a, whaling cruise, where they frequently captured large monsters of the deep. If possible  they would tow the leviathan into a harbor, or  if the weather would permit, they would cut  the animal up at sea and bring the blubber  ashore in pieces.   The .Latest fBorror.
