THE WEEK'S MINING NEWS.
WANETA.
(From our own. correspondent.)
It is with regret wc have lo chronicle
the departure of Judge W. M. Newton
from om- midst. Mr. Newton has gone
to Nelson, thence he goes I o the coast
in search of the g^iod health that was
unfortunately denied hiin here.
Mr. Bell, chief engineer of S.S. Columbia, and a companion had a narrow
escape from lightning while viewing tho
wreck of that vessel. A small thunder
shower came up and Ihe lightning
splintered several trees in a radius of
50 feel, the men being thrown to the
bottom of the boat hy the. violence of
the shock. They weie badly frightened
but not otherwise injured. The electricity was probably attracted by the
large amount of old iron in ihe wreck.
We are pleased to note that Messrs.
Hardman & Babb. who have recently
put in a small hydraulic plant on their
property one mile from the mouth of
the Salmon, have made a very satisfactory clean up, the results, far exceeding
their most sanguine expectations.
Geo. J. Goodhue, of the Kootenay
Hydraulic Co., in a dispatch from New
York says he has succeeded in enlisting
capital to the amount' of $('0,000, and
will arrive here about the 20th inst. He
will put on a large force of men at once
and institute a system of pumps to
supply water for- the work of their
ground in the spring.

(From our own Correspondent.)
;��� August 11th," 1S94.
The Cumberland, which immediately
adjoins the Idaho and St. John, until
die last few days had only been able to
show-18 inches of clean ore at a depth of
over 100 feet, can now lay claim to have
one of the finest showings in the Slocan.
The extensive ledge of clean ore recently
exposed on the Idaho has now been
traced and stripped for some distance
on the Cumberland ground by Martin
Clair, one of the. owners, and so far a
four' foot vein of clean ore has^ been uncovered.
The owners of the Thompson group of
* claim's to ""the south of Four-mile, have
every reason to be satisfied with the
result of the development work done by
tliem on their claims..The ledge appears
to be very similar to that on- the Fisher
Maiden. The surface showings were
dry ore mixed with galena, hut the
greater the depth the less the galena
until it can be called an entirely dry
ore. With two such promising milling
prepositions as those referred to, both
situate within a short distance from
Silverton, the Alpha group shipping ore,
and the Read and Robertson group employing a large force of men, we may
look i'or considerable activity in the
Four-mile camp this fall and winter.
^ A serioin* aeeiflo.nt occurred this uiorn-
ingtoaman named J. Caldwell, who
was working with the bridgemen on one
of the railroad trestles. "Caldwell lost
his foot ing and fell some 35 feet, alighting on his side amongst a pile of timber
and stumps. The extent of the poor
man's injuries have not yet* been ascertained. ' ^

The former will  remain  with-us.foi a
. few weeks.

August 17th.���(Special)���All of the Noble
Five and Deadman Buildings were burnt
last night by forest fires which were blown
into fierceness by a gale of wind that
sprang up suddenly.
The great ledge of ore recently struck in
the Idaho mine is found ou development
to be fifteen feet thick.
F. F. McNaghteu has found the same
ledge in the Cumberland claim where,
however, it is is only four feet thick.
Though the weather is fine the smoke unfortunately prevents our visitors from

Tom Ward and John Hirsch came back
to town on Wednesday after a roughish

the north came out opposite Balfour.
Unfortunately they did not discover
anything to repay them for the hardships of their journey.
The electric light; is now an established
fact in Nelson. R. E. Lemon has the credit
of being the first'to have it installed in his
store, and he will be followed quickly by
G. Bigelow and the tenants of tlie Houston
Block. The rates charged are from 5% to
8 cents per candlepower per month. These
are cheaper than coal oil, but they are not
so cheap as they would have been had not
the company bungled so seriously over the
water power. In fact every user oE the
electric light now has to. pay.for the company's an business'^ ^.e management. We
hope to see the streets lit by the new light,
and we are satisfied that this can be doDe.
at a very small cost. When it has beeu
proved that the light can be properly run
a meeting of the citizens should be called
to ascertain the cost of lighting the tcvn
and to see whether the necessary funds
can be raised.
mum of $15,000 or $20,000, a special appeal should be made to representative
bodies and the public of the Dominion
generally for assistance in the present
emergency, and that a copy of the
resolution lie sent to the press associations and to the various city corporations
and boards of trade throughout the
Dominion.

the right to command the battalion.
The article concludes: "I cannot,
ascertain that any pressure -has
been brought to ��� bear upon the War
Office from Canada to have the Major-

Herbert have a fine opportunity to make

A. N. Beaton, one of the partners
the Vandall mine on French Creek,

a has/ of nuggets and coarse gold
at .$750. He reports the mine as paying
handsomely, over $100 having been
taken out in one day by lour men. Mr.
Beaton savs: "On our claim we lookout
$250 in the last two days before I left,
and since spring the total output has
been several thousands. The wing dam

Several minor engagements have taken  place in which the Japanese seem to  have been victorious, but it is generally  thought that the war has not yet. really  begun. China is slowly rolling up huge  masses of men, aud it will take time to  arm and move them to posit ions where  their power may be felt.  London, Aug, 9���������A dispatch from  Tientsin to the Central News says that  the Emperor of China has directed that  a levy for war tribute be made upon the  viceroys of the different provinces.  Chinese troops, with European officers,  are rapidly advancing through Manchuria  toward the Korean frontier. China is  wary in her preparations, but is unsparing in her efforts to succeed in ihe  impending fighting.  The Shanghai correspondent of the  Central News, says that according to  advices from Yokohama and Nagasaki,  Japan is pouring reinforcements into  Korea, using for the purpose all the  available fast steamers flying the Japanese flag. A Japanese transportation  fleet recently started for Chemulpo; another fleet started for the north, coast  of Korea, presumably for- Gensan. The  Japanese newspapers are forbidden to  refer tothe. warpreparations or to publish  any army news except such as is prepared  by the government. The Japanese aim  to attack the Chinese.before the arrival  of the Manchnrian corps. The Chinese  fleets make no effort to leave the coast.  Fast Japanese cruisers are constantly  watching.  Meanwhile international feeling is not  quite so amicable as it appeared to be  last week. Though there is nothing on  the surface to justify them, both France  and Russia are showing signs of distrust  of England. The Russian press is particularly energetic in its language.  The Japanese made an unsuccessful  attack on Port Hamilton. The engage-  mentTseems to have partaken of the  charcter of a reconnaissance in force  Only a few shots were fired and then  the fleet, withdrew. No damage was  done to either side.  The following is another account oi' the  battle.  A special dispatch to Cheefoo confirms  the report that the Japanese fleet attacked  the Chinese fleet at Weihaiwei yesterday  morning aud Avere repulsed at one entrance  of the harbor, aud subsqueutiy made an  attack at tbe other entrance. The dispatch  says the Japanese made a daring attempt  to capture the forts and arsenal at Weihaiwei. The Japanese attacked in force,  four cruisers and several smaller vessels  holding the advance. The first shots were  exchanged at daylight, but the Chinese  were on the alert, and their gunners returned a vigorous fire from the forts. The  .. Japanese apparently expected to take the  Chinese by surprise while "the hitter's- warships were away, the Chinese squadron,  with the exception of some small gunboats  and torpedo boats, having sailed the diy  before for another port. t The gunboats  and fort kept up such a well-directed fire  that the Japanese were unable to enter  the'harbor. The torpedo boats were ordered to advance, and when they did so the  Japanese fleet retired. The same Japauese  fleet attacked the harbor eutrance later in.  day, but. were defeated.  The Peiyaog fleet is engaged with the  Japanese fleet, and a stubborn battle is  being fought, twenty-one ships taking part.  "���������Itisestimated-that-nearly-oOjOOO-Russiau  troops are in eastern Siberia, aud they  have with them sixty-four heavy guns;  This, taken in connection with the fact  that Russia has sent eight warships under  sealed orders to Korea, and that the commander-in-chief of eastern Siberia is to  hold the troops in that district iu readiness  to march at any moment, is regarded as  significant.

Professor Hermann, as pale as he could  consistently be, stood in the centre of  tlie stage, looking for the spot he had  previously marked there.  Professor Hermann found his proper  position in a minute or two and stood  there, thirty feefc from the muzzles of  the rifles, just far enough away^ as experiment had shown, to avoid injury hy  miming powder.  He braced his feet aud bent forward,  Willi his chest squarely facing the  soldiers and his hands raised, as if ready  to do a groat, amount, of bullet grasping  when the word was given.  "Heady," the corporal cried, and the  long rifles came to --present" as one.  The audience braced itself instinctively for the shock.  "Fire!" cried the corporal, and six  rifles flashed and roared as one.  Hermann's arms were seen to move  through the cloud of smoke for an  instunt, and as it cleared he stepped  quickly to the.table in the centre ot the  stage-and-dropped-six-cartridges-upon  the plate, which was in- readiness there.  That was all. .  In Minnesota 200 members of A. R. U.  are petitioning the governor to intercede  with the railway authorities, who refuse  to take them back, on their behalf. We  wonder if they had any tender feeling  for the railway company when they  thought they could hold their end up?  A  BULLET  PROOF MAN.  Hermann, the renowned 'conjuror, "-'has  electrified New York.    He stands in the  centre of tho stage.and  allows six  riflemen armed,with the regulation Springfield rifles and government "ammunition  to fire a volley at his  bare  breast.    The  trick, for'it is a trick, of course,  is exceedingly clever.    The firing .party was  selected from the regular United  States  Artillery under the command  of a corporal. The ammunition was inspected by  .'the vast audience that filled the Metropolitan Opera House .and  never left the  corporals hands until presented to  each  .mau to load with and was never touched  by Hermann.    The following account of  this  new  sensation  is   taken  from   an  exchange:  Then Hermann stepped forward to  the first man, and when the soldier  threw open the breech of his rifle the  magician took it from him and squinted  through the gleaming barrel.  He inspected each rifle in turn, and  gave it back to the owner. The cartridges, meantime, were in charge of the  corporal. The professor was only making sure that he had only lead to fear,  and there would be nothing in the rifles  except the cartridges after they were  loaded.  When he had done that he stepped  back to the rear of the stage, and "the  men who had giveu up" their ammunation  for the inspection of the audience had it  returned to them again, one cartridge  to each man.  They inarched out upon the  platform  A CONFESSION OF  MURDER.  'Vancouver, August 9th.���������Charlie, the  Squamish Indian, has confessed to the  murder of McRorie at Sea Island. He  says he went, to McRories's cabin drunk  anil, seizing an axe, killed McRorie while  asleep, in the hope of securing money,  which he failed, to get. Charlie talks with  the greatest freedom. Sergeant Hey wood  warned him to tell ouly the truth, for what  he said would be used in evidence against  him. --I'll tell"delate truth," Charlie.re-  plieil, with a broad grin and with the careless a'ir that he has shown ever, since his  arrest. "I left Vancouver with 'Tom'  (Fort' Rupert Indian) about 12 o'clock,  cim't tell time, but about -12 at night; we  had bottle whiskey. Before"! got to Mc-  lloiie's we drank half the whiskey. 1 went  into McRorie's cabin and asked him it' I  could stay there all night. He said 'jNo;  got out; I don't want any Siwash around  here.' I went out and finished other half  bottie of whiskey and threw bottle away.  Then I got thinking aud I went into McRorie's cabin. McRorie was on bed; I  think he was asleep. There was axe neat-  bed. I picked up axe and struck McRorie.  I think he turned over, then I struck him  a������nin. I killed McRorie same as I killed  other man. (Crime the prisoner served  five years for.) Other man came over from  stables aud talk to iny klootehman. I did  not know him,'but I took club aud killed  him. Yes, I killed them both." Charlie  takes the whole affair as a huge joke.  DOG  AND  DYNAMITE.  The following story reaches us from  Indiana: Mr. Thomas Sunderland, a farmer iu that district, had heard of the destructive powers of: dynamite among fish.  He therefore procured a stick, large  enough to blow out. an ordinary stump,  aud having attached the fuse and cap, lit  the former and threw the whole business  into his horsepopd'where there are a few  carp. Now Farmer Sunderland had a dog  named Fido. During his puppyhood Fido  had been with great difficulty taught to  enter the water and fetch out anything  that had been thrown iu. No sooner then  did the stick of dynamite with its . burning  fusej touch the water than faithful Fido  dashed in-and- seizing- thechargeinstautly  brought it ashore to his master. In vain  were orders to "drop it" given, in vain the  terrified man tried to run from his playful  dog. That faithful beast followed him  everywhere, the dynamite between his  teeth, the trailing fuse growing shorter  and shorter at every step. At some distance there was a heavily built snake fence.  For this the scared man made his best  record. As he reached the top of it a  sudden bang blew him over aud sent most  of the rails ��������� .on the top of him. More  frightened than hurt, he pulled himself  together; extricated himself from the fallen  timber, brushed the dust from 'his clothes  and surveyed tho scene. Many rods of  the fence were gone and where the dog  hacVbeen was a large hole about three feet  e.c. carpenter, resident agent  t*h:*r.*e*b forks.  Spokane Falls &  Northern R'y.

"We have been much flattered lately at  news-  thein  the amount of space   which   our   contemporary has devoted  to  our affairs.  It evidently understands  the  tastes of  its readers.    At least a journal  that is  stuck up enough to give advice to others  ought to know how to conduct its own  affairs.      It   devotes    paragraph   after  paragraph to us,   which  is  pleasing in  itselMiut is doubly  so as showing  that  Ave are an object of so much  interest to  our' contemporary's r caders.    We regret;  that we cannot return the compliment.  Our readers care nothing for  the other  paper and its doings.    They declare that  they   want  their paper  to  be  a  paper,  a  paper   that    will'keep  informed of passing events  in  all  parts  of the world.     Our  readers  hail from  every    country   under    the    sun,    and  whether    we   write    of   Australia,    or  Europe,   or   Africa,    the   matter   will  interest  some of  them. , At the same  time they like a paper that contains the  principal items of news of the district in  which  they live  and  that keeps them  posted in all the affairs of  that  niining  industry in which they are all interested.  Tjiis MiNJSii. suits them exactly.   They  do not care for a paper that is  one half  made up of stories, stolen  i'or  the most  pari; without acknowledgment from the  Argonaut, and other rubbish which can  be bought at the rate of about a dollar  and a half a page, though of course it is  cheaper to steal it.  There is one little  matter, however,  .^.fo-w-hicli_w.e_find_ it' necessary to  draw  our contemporary's attention.    It  is a  WITHOUT A HEAD.  There is a good deal of talk about the  future leader of the opposition. The  members who form that party���������if party  it. can be called���������are all going about  cackling and each trying to hold his  head higher than his neighbor's in the  hope of being selected. The one man  who appears to be most suitable is Mb.  Cotton. But Mr. Cotton is unfortunately in gaol. He was put there for  contempt of court, because he refused to  say what he has done with several  thousand dollars belonging to someone  else. He is in a tight place, because as  long as he refuses to answer the question  the court puts to him, so long the court  will keep him" locked up. And if he  answers the question it is shrewdly suspected that one of two things will  happen, that he will be immediately  prosecuted either for perjury or for  embezzlement. In the event of either  being proved he would have to return  to gaol���������perhaps for a protracted period���������  and would of course lose his seat as a  felon.  Is it not. a little undignified that a  parliamentary party can only obtain as  a leader a man who dare not explain  what, he has done with some one else's  money:-1 Will the public who elected  these un fortunate opposition members  like to see them led by Mb. Cotton  unless he is able to come forward and  clear himself of the very grave suspicions  that hang around.him?  However, whether Mb. Cotton leads  the opposiiion or some one else takes  ihe  rein.i  he  will  find his  hands   full.  Every opposition member was returned  011 a separate platform, which they built  up   without   reference  to   each   other.  They   now   find   themselves   bound to  oppose members of their own party on  questions   of   the   greatest  importance  and only united in a blind aud unreasoning opposition  to the government and  all its works.    Their leader, whoever he  may be. is ceitainly not to be envied.  " Since writing the above Mb. Cotton's  three months have expired and he has  been liberated.    It remains  to  be seen  what course tlie prosecutors will take.  By  haling   him  again  to   the witness  box his sentence may be repeated.    Or a  judge may not be  content  with giving  hi iii   three   months   for his refusal   to  answer the  vital question.   The delinquent may be sent  to   prison   for an  indefinite time until he shall purge  his  an"s^vei'iii^_������lT^.~queTtT6n  The Manitoba Free Press has done  good service by publishing the following  fact^s:  "A prominent citizen of "Winnipeg  has received a parcel of lottery tickets  and a most seductive letter from the  Louisiana Lottery company. The letter  and package came by express, the mails  being closed to this class of communication. Among the tickets is one marked  "prize ticket," which the gentleman is  assured will draw a prize, just to reassure people in this country that prizes  sometimes come this way. The amount  of the prize thus promised will be something between $75,(XX) and $5,000. All  the gentleman addressed is asked to do  is to sell as many of the fifty other  tickets sent as he can and allow himself  to be announced as the winner of the  big prize.'  This of course was the bait with which  to lure gullibie people on to invest iu  the lottery. Fortunately the letter and  its contents fell into the hands of an  honest man who hastened to publish the  fraud. The warning may be useful  here.

AVhen dealing with  our affairs we must ask them to keep  within the lines of Truth, or there may  be trouble. Amongst other matters we  have been accused of maligning the  character of Mr. Hume. We challenge  our opponent to produce a single  instance of our having done so. AVhat  we have said about Mr. Hum 10 may. he  summed up as follows: "We believe  him to be an excellent, honest, upright'  citizen, absolutely ignorant of politics  and entirely in the hands of perfectly  unscrupulous persons who hope to use  him as a tool to "bring about their own  ends. Of Mr. Hume's character we  have the highest opinion and we hope it  will "serve him to clear himself of the  society in which he. finds himself. Not  one. word against his character have we  ever written.  .  .  AVe are further accused of being  "disgruntled" at' .yarious things and  also of making attacks upon Mr. G.  A. Bigelow.

AVe  think  that  morally they are  much  to  blame for being parties to  such a document.,  but it.  is .possible   that   finding  themselves  in  a  cleft  stick they  have  reluctantly adopted the only method of  again  working their properties.     This  agreement is signed by the Vice-President of the Milwaukee Mining   Co.,  the  President of the  Standard Mining Co.,  the Vice-President of the Coeur d' "Alene  Mining and  Concentrating  Co. .. These  three   officers "being   really    only, one  individual,  Mb.  A. B. Campbell.   The  other signatures are A.-L.. Gross aud  Edward Botce,  the President of the  Central Executive   Miners   Union.     It  provides that $3.50 shall be paid to all  underground workers.    No  discrimination is. to  be  made in  employing men.  No fresh hands are to be imported.   The  men objected to by the Union are not to  be again employed.  -All differences are  to be settled by arbitration.    The late  differences . are to  be considered at an  end, andboth parties are to be friends  for the future. "A more complete knuckle  down to mob tyranny was never perpetrated,  No. 131. .

'. llith July, 1S91. THE MINER, NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, AUGUST  i8,   1894-  ANARCHIST   BOMBS.  Never in the. history of anarchy has  there been such a sequence of dastardly  crimes committed in so .short a space, of  time as dining the present year. The  last, and most appalling of id], the murder of President Carnot, emphasizes the  urgent need of i in mediate action on the  part of all governments to take measures that will lead to the swift punishment and extermination of these human  wolves who call themselves Anarchists.  Though the dagger was used with  such terrible effect by Santo, the bomb  will nevertheless remain the chosen  weapon of anarchy. The knife exposes  the murderer to too great risk, and is, according to the ethics of reds. not. wide  enough in its scope. To kill by the score  is the greatest glory of these people; The  evolution of the modern bomb, as used  by Anarchists, is an interesting study.  In Paris the throwing pf bombs has ceased to be a novelty; the people, have become accustomed to look upon <it_ as a  craze bound to run its course.  The government has established a  special laboratory where bombs, both  unexploded and fragments of exploded  ones, are. carefully examined to ascertain their composition.  The word bomb in the general acceptance of the word is a misnomer, at least  as far as the French specimens are concerned. Formerly the people always  associated a bomb with a sphere or  cylinder of cast steel or iron. . It was at  ,. best a clumsy affair, and not only awkward to handle but also difficult lo conceal. The Anarchist tin de Steele bomb  is a totally different ' affair-. To fully  understand the action of these infernal  machines it is but necessary to note the  great progress made in the manufacture  of explosives. .There were two recognized^ methods of killing by explosives in  days gone by. It was done either1 by  the instantaneous expansion of deadly  ���������permanent gases enveloping and suffocating every living thing within reach,  carrying with it, as,a rule, a fetid, intolerable stench, or by loading up the  regulation cylinder with balls or cartridges. The"force and expansion of the  ordinary power were fortunately limit-'  edi and the damage from such bombs  was relatively small. This was in the  infancy of bonibmaking. The first really  important discovery in progressive explosives was made when, the fulminate  of mercury put in an appearance. It  revolutionized the manufacture of arms  and gave to the world the percussion cap  for guns and pistols instead of flints  uped up ..to . that. time. Besides being  easily exploded fulminate of mercury  has a mpch greater power of explosion  than ordinary powder.  Orsini practiced on Napoleon III, with  bombs, pr-o.vided -with percussion caps.  Alexander- II, of Russia fell a victim to  a similar projectile. The bombthrovver  in the Barcelona opera-house used a fulminate of mercury bomb. Two bombs  were thrown. One.of these exploded,  killing twenty-five or thirty people, but  the other fell on a woman's dress and  rolled under a chair, where it was found  intact. As a specimen of bomb-making  it is a masterpiece and shows the skill of  an expert niachanic'i Itis made of line  steel, the halves being fitted together by  a iiicely finished thread. Itis provided  ���������wit h not less.than, twenty-six percussion  ..ciips; making explosion sure . when"  thrown against any"^olid"^tib"sttrn"ciT.!"  The catching of.this bomb in the soft  folds,of a woman's dressisthe only thing.  shaped ones which, though innocent  enough in apperance, are terrific in dealing death when exploded. Then there  air, the valise and hat-box bombs, which  are fitted out with time fuses and left  with unsuspecting resturant and hotel  keepers who have been marked by the  Anarchists as objects of their revenge.

ALIVE.  Aug.   11.���������William  BURIED  Northfield, Minn.,  Lud'vig of Lester, nine miles from here,  was taken sick with typhoid fever on  August. 18th, 1S92, aud in 15 days was pronounced dead bv the attending physician.  Thirty-two hours later he was buried in  the churchyard, a short distance from the  house. A short time ago tlie church or-  gfmizati u decided to reconstruct the  cemetery and to do this several bodies had  to be" removed, 'among them was that of  Mr. Lndwig. When the earth was taken  from the rough box, the casket glass over  the face was accidentally broken. The  horrible discovery was then made ��������� that  Lndwig had been buried alive. His body  was turned face down aud the sides and bottom of the casket were covered with blood,  la tlie man's hands were bunches of hair  torn from his head, and ill places on' the  body were wounds where the skin had been  torn off in his struggles to escape. The  legs were drawn up, aud the knees were still  pressed against the sides of the casket  showing the desperate efforts the unhappy  man had made to. burst open the casket.  The physician who attended Ludwig declines t" discuss the matter, further than  to say, if the man was uot dead when buried, the fault was with the people iu charge  iu burying him so soon.  ,S>-:������0���������I'itlslmrg, I'cmi., nibrfKetitrii. -$!i������.
