August 4th, 1891.  The fires in tho hills continue to rage  with the greatest fierceness, but owing  to the dense smoke it is impossible to  tell until night time what headway they  are making. From 'Five-mile Point to  Mill Creek on the west side ot Slocan  Lake is a sea of flames, lighting the  country around for miles. The sight on  Friday night was one which few who  saw it will soon forget, the flames leaping from tree to tree and travelling with  a rapidity which was startling, making  a most imposing spectacle. ,At Ihe  same time to the north of (he town a  smaller but fiercer lire made considerable  headway. Fears wore entertained that  the trestles on the railroad between  here and Wilson Creek would be burned,  but fortunately only very slight damage  was done to them. Up Carpenter Creek  the cabin on the "Egypt" (an extension  to &. W. Hughes' "Mountain Chief")  was the . last loss reported. At the  Mountain Chief fifteen men are employed, all of whom are now fighting  fire, so far successfully. There is no  immediate danger either' here or at  Silverton.  Since writing the above we hear a  report that the Washington cabins have  been burned and also McGuigan's cabin  at McGuigan Lake.  AVANJETA.-.  (From our oivn co-respondent.)

Arrangements have  been made for a pack train to carry a ton  of ore to Alberni, whence it will be shipped  to Tacoma for treatment, so that a proper-  idea may be obtained of what the vein will  average. .     '  The White Horse claim,- also owned by  Mr. McQuillan and associates," has an immense body oi: galena ore which can be  worked verv cheaply. Nature .has-.indeed  alreadv done considerable mining on that  claim by detaching a great mass of ore  from the vein and throwing it' down the  steep side of the mountain into the basin,  whereat lies all ready to be broken up and  . shipped. The Nimrod, owned by the same  people, is just over J;he top of the mountain  from the King Solomon, aud is also a very  promising piece of property.  While Mr. Child was at China Creek  there was considerable excitement over a  placer find on.Hiawatches creek, some five  miles from China Creek, and prospectors  were flocking in every day to that district  and also to China Creek, where placer min-  ingas well as quartz isreceivingconsiderable  attention with good results.

The aplomb of the prisoner excited expressions of surprise on all sides, nothing  to equal it having ever been witnessed  here. In reference to his having been  sent to school, he said: U I had been a  better scholar, I should have been a  better man." A few minutes later, being asked about his choir boy days,  when he represented John the Baptist  in church processions, he said: "I was  a child then, and children, you know,  unwittingly act stupidly."  The judge then discussed Caserio's  presence at the revolutionary lectures of  Signor Gori, a lawyer, in Milan, in spite  of the expostulations of his familv,  whereupon Caserio explained "Humanity is greater than family." -Asked  whether he did not act as a courier between   the   anarchists   of ��������� France   and  GOLD  MINING AT NELSON.

Refractory and low grade  ores hitherto considered of no value have  been treated in ton lots, and an average  extraction of 93% of any assay value at a  cost of $1.80 per ton for chemicals, and time  will speak for itself. Tests are being  made free of cost, where business is likely  to accrue and we strongly recommend our  mining men to have their ore treated.  Should not the Poorman, Whitewater and  such like mines do weli on this system of  treatment?

Lyons,  Aug.   2.��������� The trial   of  Santo  Caserio for the murder of President Carnot began  here  this  morning.    Caserio'  was transferred from the prison .to  the  Palace of Justice at 5 o'clock,, this  morri-  .ing_iindfirLa_st_6.u.t_e_saont^.o.E_genclar.mes.-  The bridge facing  the  court house and  the open   space surrounding the court  building, were guarded by  military and  police.   As the judges took  their seats  upon the bench Caserio  was ordered to  be placed in the prisoner's dock.   As tbe  assassin.appeared between two stalwart;  silver-laced gendarmes he was the cynosure of all  eyes.   He  is a  mild  faced,  common place  youth.    His complexion  is fair and'there "is a faint suspicion of  down upon his upper lip.    As the prisoner ente'red'the dock he gazed about him  in a way that betokened more curiosity  than interest in bis surroundings.    Presently as he   caught   sight  of   M.   De  Breuil, his counsel, his face  lighted  up  and he bowed smilingly and  gracefully  to his advocate and at that  moment he  seemed to remember that he still   wore  his cap. which  he removed  as.he  took  his seat.    The prisoner had hardly taken  his seat when Judge .Breuillac told him  to stand up.   As he obeyed the order he  bowed and smiled again and  it  seemed  difficult  to   realize   that, such   a   mild  mannered boy v.-as the assassin  of the  chief magistrate of the French republic.  Judge Breuillac then swore in an   interpreter named de Gonneval,. .who  was  accepted   by   Caserio.    This  was done  that there should be no doubt  that the  prisoner should understand  everything.  that  was  said to  him.   The jury was  then empanelled,    Several  of trie jury  were objected to  by* Attorney-General  Folchier and   these   were, replaced  by  others.     Under the  questioning of the  judge,  Caserio recapitulated   his  antecedents.    His christian  name,  he  said,  was Santo Geronimo.-   He was  born  in  November, 1S73,  and his father was a  ferryman.     When   questions. were "re  pealed to him he easily lost his  temper,  like a petulant child, and  it  was  necessary to translate the queries into Italian.  In several cases where this  was done it  -������va.'; claimed by some of the press  representatives   present   that  the questions  were badly translated.  coining to the question of the prisoner's responsibility the jtuiirt; said: '.'It is  iiii important point whether you are  i,-sponsible or not." Caserio, replied in  a firm voice: "I am absolutely responsible." Latm-,_ the judge said": " Your  Mother wor-hipped you  and gave you  I do mine. I have nothing to say niore  than that they (tlie police) taxed corn-  ' muuications between various anarchists  systematically."  The prisoner denied knowing a single  anarchist.  Judge Bruillac���������"Coming to Lyons  you stopped at Vienna and- went to an  anarchist barbers?"  Carerio���������"I naturally went to a barbers, I couldn't get my hair cut at a  bakers,"   (Laughter.)  The j udge���������"A deputation of Lvonaise  anarch's is visited you as a personage  of importance when you were ill in the  hospital at Cette?"  Caserio���������"A* friend from Lyons visited  me, and he had some of his friends with  him, but they brought me nothing."  Judge���������"What, brought you nothing.  Didn't they bring you these?" (producing photographs of Ravachol, Pallas,  and the Chicago anarchists.  "No," replied Caserio.  "At any rate they were similar to  these," retorted the judge.  "Now you are right," admitted the  prisoner1.  Throughout the examination the prisoner defended himself against accusations of connections wiih anarchists  with rare skill, fighting the ground inch  by inch.  'There was a profound sensation in the  court room when Assistant Registrar  Mathieu removed the covering from a  dagger and handed it to the judge. The  weapon was still stained with the blood  of the murdered president, and as the  magistrate held it up, a thrill of horror  ran through the assemblage.  "Is this the one you. brought from  Cette?" asked the judge.-    -  "Yes," replied .Caserio unflinchingly  as he nodded towards the still bloody  dagger'.  As the judge handled the weapon  before passing it to the jury the prisoner  was not in the least disconcerted and as  the dagger was handed to the jury the  criniinaLcalmly brushed a (ly from his  cheek.

Coming to the question of premedita  j tion Caserio readily admitted that the  : anarchist was the enemy of all" chiefs of .  | the state, and also that "the purchase of  <"the dagger was further indication of pre-  ! meditation."  !.   Tbe Judge���������"How long had you medir  jtated the crime?"

It is a little difficult to follow the precise history of the stirring even Is that  are taking place in the narrow seas around  the peninsula of Korea. The Japanese  seem to bo making it lively for the Chinese,  and before war was declared they attacked  and sank a troopship, tlie Kow-Shimg.  The Kow Sluing happened to be a British  ship chartered by the Chinese government  and was sailing tinder tbe British flag.  The British Minister at once protested and  extorted a full apology from Japan and a  Sromise to pay all the damages. They  ecla're'd that they knew. the ship had  phiuese troops ou board and they thought  that the British ensign was only a ruse de  guerre. The following is an account of  the engagement:  .The Japanese cruiser sent a boat alongside' tlie transport with a. prize crew to  convey hem to Japan. Capt. .Gals worthy,  an Englishman, refused to obey, the Order,  and the Japanese withdrew. The cruiser  "then opened fire, using machine gnus  Counted on the tops of the Japanese ship.  The fire soon cleared the Kow Shung's  decks. The cruiser then discharged two  fbrpedoes at the transport, sinking her and  'drowning nearly, all, 2,000 souls, on board.  jOol. von Hoiineken, a German, formerly  the viceroy's aide-de-camp, and other foreign officers were among those killed by  the fire before the torpedoes were discharged. According to the reports received  ihere, two German passengers, who were on  Jhei.r \.yay to Korea to settle up their business affairs, before war was begun, succeeded in swimming to the Japanese cruiser,  "but in bpite of their appeals they were  ehot. The Chiuese who swam ;to the  cruiser shared the same fate. A French  warship, the Lion, rescued some unfortunate Chinese soldiers, but all the foreigners  pre reported to have been killed. The  Japanese are said to -have behaved with  utter disregard for the laws of civilized  ���������warfare.  A telegram from Tientsin says that ;'  naval battle was fought on'.'-;the tfOfch July,  between-the Chinese and Japanese fleets.  The Japanese sank the Chinese warship  Chen Yuen. Two large cruisers, supposed  to be vessels built for China by Armstrong,  were cantured or destroyed. The Chen  Yuen was a battleship of 7,400 tons displacement, carrying fourteen and one-half  inches of compound armour- ;.;. the water  line. Her battery included four twelve-  inch guns protected by armor breastworks  and two small Krapps, eleven Hotchkiss  cannon-and tubes for Whitehead torpedoes,  two one quarter-inch aud six one-inch  Krupps'and a secondary battery of Hotchkiss revolving canon. The Chen Yuen -was  built for China at thc Stettin works. She  was a sister ship to the Ling Yuen and  was the most powerful ship in the Chiuese  navy, with the. exception of the Ling Yuen.  It is reported that the Japanese forces  attacked the Chinese position at Yashan  on Friday and Saturday last, 3rd and 4th.  The Japanese, it is said, we're repulsed with  heavy loss.   The Chinese loss was trivial.  The North China News confirms the report of fighting at Yashan. It says .that  the Japauese brought up for the attack  every available man, almost den tiding Seoul  of troops. The successful defence made  . by the Chinese was directed by European  officers. Over 1,500 Japanese ' are said to  have been killed in this fight.  ^ Tac general opiniqiy of the European  ~~jdiirhals'is "that Japan" will be successful at  Hirst, but that eventually the crushing  weight of the Chinese.Empire will tell.  Her' resources are never ending. ' The  population of Japan is forty millions to  China's four hundred millions.  Thirty thousand Chinese soldiers' are  now in Korea. ,  A telegram from San Francisco-says that  the appearance of a troup of Japanese  acrobats on the stage of the Chinese  theatre in that town almost precipitated a  riot.-        " v  j  . 0 It is reported from a semi official Russian  source that the government at St. Petersburg desires a prompt settlement of the  China-Japan war and is willing -to act in  concert with Eugland to bring this about.  Should their joint" efforts fail to restore  -peace, Russia is determined to let no power  'take possession of any part of Korea. .  A'telegiamsays on the morning of July  29th the Japanese advanced ou the Chiuese  entrenchments at Shewing, routed -the  Chinese aud captured the entrenchments.

Among all the mining machines and appliances shown a^ tbe World's Columbian  Exposition there was nothing which excited more interest ami favorable comment'than  the Tremaine Steam Stamp MitjTj in the Mining Building, [t was a positive novelty  to the great majority of mining men. It commanded attention by reason of its simplicity and evident practibility. Experienced mining engineers were astonished to  learn "that such a machine had been in successful -operation id-;bver two years in the  extreme north-western part oi the United States. . ! - '* (5)  main shaft. A crank placed on themain  shaft gives the pans an oscillating or  rocking motion, or as a placer miner  would say, a "hen wallowing motion."  These.pans are placed one above another, in such a way that the fine gravel  falls from the first, to the second and  from the second to the bottom, or amalgamating pan. The water- is tarried to  the top pan by the aid of a simple double  acting pump, which is run by a walking  beam connected to the main shaft. The  water passes through eachjpan and falls  to the bottom, where'it can be collected  and used over again if necessary.  The gold-bearing gravel to be worked  is first shoveled into a '-boot" or box  through which a belt fitted with elevator cups runs. This elevator carries the  gravel to the top and deposits it in the  upper pan. Here the course and fine  gravel is separated, the fine stuff being  carried by the water through a screen to  the second pah, and the fine sand and  gold passes through another- screen with  a finer mesh into the amalgamating pan.  This-pau-.discharges-i f s-con tents-in to- a  tank, where the water settles and can be  used oyer again. When the gold-bearing earth gets to the third tank, it is  pretty well concentrated, and can" easily  be collected with quicksilver.  The inventor claims'that.with a horse  power he can run through 50 tons of  gravel per day, and that finer gold cari  be saved this way than by any other  method. \It is claimed that a miner's inch  of water is all that is necessary to work  ground with this machine. In shallow  diggings the machine can be moved close  to the work and the tailings can be  clumped to one side as work progresses,  The whole machine weighs only about  800 pounds, and it can be carried across  the mountains with, very little trouble.  No cog wheels or gearing are used, the  whole action being accomplished by  means of chains and sprockets.  GREAT FIRE  IN  CHICAGO.  The following are the details of the  fire which occured on. the first inst in  Chicago.���������Flames to-night destroyed  more property and in a shorter space of  time than any fire which has visited  Chicago since the big conflagration in  1872. Over $3,000,000 worth of-lumber,  electrical apparatus, cars, car. wheels,  castings, stove patterns, buildings and  other material were consumed in a blazing furnace of over a half mile square in  legs than three hours time. The scene  of the fire was what is known as-the  lumber' district? The territory burned  over was bounded, by Ashland avenue  on the east, the south branch of the  Chicago river on the south, Blue Island  avenue on the north, and Roby street  on'the west: The fire was the worst  which the department has been called  on to fight in the last twenty-two years  There were many casualties among the  firemen and spectators. The only death,  so far as heard, was that of a boy who  fell from a lumber pile in a river slip and  was drowned:' Among the firemen -injured were the following: Lieut.

"We congratulate the Kootenay Hydraulic Mining Co. on the success of its  manager's efforts to secure ;the further  capital necessary for the continuance of  its operations. We believe that this  company has a fine property and that  money judiciously invested will bring a  ���������handsome return. It is not always easy  to persuade capitalists at a distance of  the latent wealth of a claim. From experiences that must occur to everyone  it would appear to be easier to get.  "money invested in a wild cat than in a  really good thing. Everyone in a  mining country must .know of many  cases in which valuable properties are  spoilt by the inability of their owners to  raise sufficient, if any, capital to work  them. At the same time bogus lodes  and salted iledges are foisted-on the public at prodigious prices. As we have  said before, we congratulate the company, on its success, but we cannot allow  the matter to pass without joining in  the warnings thatr.are being spoken by  mining journals all over the world of the  ruinous policy of starting with too little  capital. There may be too little capital  ��������� in more ways than one. Only a small  sum of money perhaps is raised at first,  with the confidence that this will be  Sufficient to show that the claim is rich  enough to justify its ^proprietors in demanding a further sum. Or large  figures are apt to frighten a man who  thinks himself rich if he has a thousand  dollars to his credit in the bank. A well  ���������luTowii linaircierMi^  other day that a certain property just  then put on the market was favourably  received because it was of decent"size.  The price required was between seven  and eight millions of dollars. There is  no doubt that the bigger a thing is the  better it takes, Few mining claims in  this country are rich enough to run into  large figures. ��������� The way out of the difficulty is to amalgamate, unite, so that  perhaps a mile or two of ground is included. Throw in concentrators, smelting works, tramways, etc., and an article  is built up fit to be shown in a shop  window on-the London or. New York  market. "While a man might peddle  round one claim for say a quarter .of a  million dollars, large amalgamated concerns will sell like hot cakes.  Another and much more serious failure  of .mining schemes is the "watering" of  stock. Blocks of stock are "donated"  to this man and that man for imaginary  services until, in cases, seventy-five per  cent, or even more of the capital is  represented by scrip upon which not a"  cent has been paid. The remaining  small moiety of capital actually subscribed by people on the outside has to  earn enough to pay dividends on the  ���������whole lot. It is generally found, impossible to do this. It is possible now  under our law to make the people to  whom stock is thus given prove the  value for which they receive it, and  if they cannot do this, they are then  liable to pay up the. amount in cold cash,  in spite of the words -'fully paid up"  endorsed on their scrip. No better law  was ever made.  But it may be asked, how is it possible  to ascertain the amount of money required to initiate and carry on works  until they are self supporting? And it  is indeed difficult to answer that question.   The only way appeal s to be to  employ the best technical adviser possi  ble.   He will probably' double his estimate, so as to be within the bounds of  probability,  and then just double   his  figures again to make all safe.  MINERS- IN SOUTH AFRICA.  The world contains no limits to the  wanderings of the miner. America, Australia, the Cape, Alaska, it matters not  which to him and he is ready at any moment to roam to the most distant shores  in search of gold. At present there is a  tendency among mining men to flock to  Britain's new territories in Africa. Stories  of rich placer fields, of .crumbling reefs  with ribs of solid gold, float out among  the newspapers of the world and attract  the notice of men from far and wide. Only  too often do we hear from some man, who  has not looked before he leapt, of the exaggerated accounts of the country, how there  are great distances to be travelled, fevers  to be fought with and other difficulties in  the way of the ordinary prospector. Or  some unhappy one unable to return paints  a picture of failure in bis letters to the  friends he left behind him.  W.e have before us the official regulations  as to mining of Tlie British South Africa  Company, and we think it-well to set them  forth so that if any of our readers are  blinking of going there they may ponder  over them before starting. A prospectors  license is.given to any one who will ibind  himself in writing to obey the laws of the  company, :and assist in the maintenance of  law and order if called upon to do so.  For this license a fee of one shilling only  twenty-tive.cents) is charged. The fighting  clause is reasonable and necessary iu a  country exposed continually to the attacks  of savage hordes. This license permits thc  bolder to peg. off one alluvial (placer)  claim and ten quartz reef claims in a block,  for whicha certificate is granted him in  return I'or a fee of half a crown (sixty cents.)  The size ol the alluvial claims is 150 feet  square, and of the quartz reefs (ledges) 150  in the direction of the reef and 100 feet  broad. The claim holder may follow the  reef, in all its dips, spurs, angles and  variations. So far the South African miner  is ahead of his brother in British Columbia.  His ten claims are about equal in extent  to one here, he has only paid 85 cents instead ol; five dollars and he can follow his  reel; in all its dips, etc. This we take to  mean that if the dip of a reel! carries him  (underground) bevoud the limits of his  surface boundary he still can follow it.  Here the law is iii accordance with that of  the United States. But having.got so far  the South African finds his troubles begin.  All of his finds in reef claims (ledges) he  has to share with the company and within  four months from the time of registration  has to sink a shaft of at least. 30. feet .over  the.reef, or alongside it with a cross cut  through it.' All this he has to do unaided  and yet he only owns half the claim. Nor  can he transfer his interest without the  consent of his partner, the company.  AVhcu this work has been done he receives  an inspection certilicate for which a fee of  ��������� fifteen shillings (about $3.75) is charged-  Iu alluvial (placer) claims the company  claims, no share, but instead charges a fee  of ������1 (35) per month in advance for registration. Such are some of the" regulations  imposed by the sovereign company, which  takes the place" of the government in other  places, with this difference, the miner  lias absolutely no voice whatever in the  management ot the affairs of the one,  whereas he has at least a vote for the  election of member for parliament iu the lyingdcad  other.  iVThc company ofl'ors a reward of ������5,000  '(825,000) for the discovery of an alluvial  gold field capable of supporting 200 people  i'or one year. One would suppose that "in  a now country, reported to be very rich  and absolutely unprospected. there should  belittle difficulty'in doing this. On the  whole, unless the precious metals can be  more easily come at there than here, we  fancy the miner is better off in British  Columbia.  further inconvenience' of the delayed  train does not lie at the door of this  much maligned department. Of course  in any remarks we may make on this  department we refer to its heads only  who we suppose are answerable, for all  its troublesome rules and regulations,  the local officers simply have to carry  out the instructions they receive and a  most distasteful office it must be.  Apart altogether JErom the question of  duty, the customs department requires  a large amount of statistical information,  even on goods shipped out of the country. This information ' the public  patiently, supplies. The department  does not even furnish the forms on  which it is written. We believe that if  the government requires all this 'information, which is of course necessary for  statistical purposes, it should collect it  itself. There is another ancient farce  connected with this -passing of entries,  the signing of the affidavit or oath or  whatever-it is at the back of the form.  How many men who sign this, and  every man must sign three of them for  each entry, know what they are signing?  generally ith.e .blanks are not even filled  up until long after' their signature is  affixed at ;the foot. T.his clause as a  matter of fact is a solemn declaration  that the goods in a certain package are  properly described on; an invoice and  that the said invoice is a proper aud  complete account of all the goods .in the  package. And this is signed generally  before the signer has seen the invoice  and certainly before he has had an  opportunity of seeing the goods in the  package. Its intention' is of course to  provide"against fraudulent or dummy  invoices, but it has hot -proved of the  least service in' doing so. A man who  means to.defraud the revenue will not  stick at signing his name to such a  clause as this. But it time is coming,  we hope and conscientiously believe,  when the.trodden woriii will turn, and  the public will rise up and sweep the  customs man and his'charges and forms  and all his other abominations off the  face of the world.       ]  FRENCH METHODS.  We publish to-day an account of the  trial of Santo Caseho for the murder  of President Carxct. It is an excellent example of the nethods employed  in the French courts which are quite at  variance with our British ideas. The  questioning of the prsoner by the judge  is a (ivery debateabfe proceeding. In  British countries no prisoner is asked to  incriminate himself.. In Fiance every  effort is made to get him to do so.  " "It" appears "at "lasftliiit- tlie"l-e"ir"frTr"tli"  has become apparent to some of the deluded men who were led to throw up  their work and becoire criminals at the  persuasion of Mk. Dsus. One of these  men, awake to the fact that he has been  fooled, has threatened to thrash Debs.  The threat has taken all the starch "out  of that tinpot leader. He declares now  that strikes are a mistake, that he will  never have anything to do with another,  and that there are constitutional methods of settling disputes between capital  and labor.

"I said to you,  after you-liad made that remark, 'But  who would be so bold as to kill President Carnot? -I saw him in Paris surrounded by. troops and police.' You  answered:    'He will be chosen by lot.'"  There was great excitement in court  while the* prisoner- and Leblanc were  speaking to each other. Later Leblanc  said: "Caserio told me that he has often  ��������� seen King Humbert in the streets, but  he added-tliat to kill him it. would be  necessary to have a'rifle and shoot hi in  from the street, as he would be so surrounded by soldiers."  'That's a  lie."   shouted  Caserio.  Car-  was never chosen to kill President  not."  One witness testified that prisoner had  informed him while in the hospital that  lie had been assigned to kill Carnot by  drawing of lots'. Caserio had declared  that anarchists retained absolute individual liberty of action and would not  execute deeds merely because- they happened to be'selected by hazard.  In summing up, the attorney-general  scathingly arraigned the prisoner and  roundlv denounced anarchists. He declared the infliction of the extreme penalty on the prisoner was imperative.  ' Caserio's counsel followed. He apologized for appearing for defendant, but  declared that his professional oath made,  it compulsory to defend, the most vile  prisoner. He referred to the grief of  the prisoner's mother in a pathetic way,  which caused the prisoner to hang his  head and cry. Counsel declared that  the prisoner was an epileptic jand wholly  irresponsible and asserted that the=-aiifir-  chist advocate Gori was" morally the  author of Caserio's crime.  The prisoner at this point sprang to  his feet and forbade the defence of his  cause at.the expense of his friends. He  denied that he was the instrument of  Gori.  Caserio was told by. the court that he  would be removed if hi; "did not keep  quiet. He then subsided and counsel  closed with an appeal for mercy.  The jury was out thirteen minutes.  A written statement of defence by Caserio was read during the trial. It is a  disjointed document. In it Caserio contrasts the miseries of the masses to the  luxuries of the favored few.   In   child-  ( Continued from 1st page.)  Judge���������''You are very young to pretend to judge the father of a family."  Caserio���������"Youth is immaterial. Soldiers equally young were guilty* of worse  crimes in shooting down the Sicillians."  Judge���������"But they were obeying orders.  Caserio���������"They were imbecile criminals to obey a murderous cheif. instead  of obeying their ideas of justice as I did."  A recess was then taken.  M. "Vaux, the cutler, of Cette, from  whom Caserio purchased the dagger he  plunged into M. Carnot's body, testified,  to the best of his knowledge and belief,  he sold the knife to the prisoner on the  Friday evening before the assassination.  Caserio maintains that he bought the  knife on Saturday.  M. Viala, the baker, who was Caserio's  employer in   Cette,   testified   that   the  {u-isoner was industrious, but exceeding-  y quick tempered. He had left his employ on the Saturday before the crime,  having quarielled with him and his wife  about some very trivial matter.  During the testimony Caserio listened  attentively and smiled.  M. Fochie read an affidavit from Mine.  "Viala, wife of the proceeding witness,  ' which slated that Caserio was the centre  of a group of anarchists in Cette. She  "related that he had said that if he should  ever mount the scaffold he would be more  courageous that Henry.  Caserio interrupted at this point and  said that was incorrect. "Henry," he  said, "was courageous to the last. He  couldn't have done better."  M. Crociocha, the police commissary  at Cette, who was recently dismissed  from his post for neglect of duty, testified that Caserio had been expelled from  France. This testimony tended to. discredit the theory that Caserio was a  prominent anarchist in Cette.  ,M Boy, police commissary at Vienna,  testified in a strain similar to that of  M. Crociocha.  M. Pernel, police commissary at  Lyons, testified that when Caserio passed through Lyons on an occasion previous to the assassination of M. Carnot,  he had attended an anarchist meeting.  Tlie Court adjourned until to-morrow.  Lyons, Aug. 3.���������At the conclusion of  the trial of Caserio Santo, the murderer  of President Carnot; in the assize court,  here to-day, the prisoner was sentenced  to be executed by the guillotine.  Caserio, when found guilty and sen-"  tenceiTto be guillotined,  tottered,  but  soon regaining his composure, shouted:  " Vive social revolutions.  Courage comrades, vive anarchic"  The court regulations and military  guard were the same as yesterday, and  the same military precautions were  taken. Presiding judge Breuillac opened the session, and immediately ordered  Caserio to be produced. The prisoner  seemed even more defiant than yesterday, and took his seat with a mocking.,  smile upon his face.  Leblanc,  the soldier who was a fellow  Srisoner with Caserio at Marseilles, testi-  ed that Caserio told him   that he"iri-'  . tended to kill President Carnot, probably  at Lyons,   wheTi   the   chief magistrate  visited that city.  "That is a lie," interrupted Caserio,  excitedly. "I never told yoii or anyone  else anything about my plans." Leblanc  continued: "Caserio confided to me that  he was designated by lot."  ���������"Thatgis untruer'shreiked Caserio.���������-  01'How   untrue?"  .asked= the   soldier,  hood he declares he believed in God, but  as he grew older he saw it was man' created God. Just as long as the authorities practised repressive measures on  wage earners, he said, just as long will  the dagger and dynamite be used. The  last words of Chicago anarchists, "Long  live anarchy," "Death to society," would,  lie declared resound until the anarchist's  ideal prevailed.  The news that sentance of death had  been imposed upon Caserio was received  with great satisfaction by the crowds in  waiting outside the palace of justice.  ARMT.T & RASHDALL,  lining Brokers.  THE   DELAYED   TRAIN.  To the Editor oj? Tub Miner,  Dear Sir,���������I notice in your issue of  the -ith inst. an item calling for explanation of delav of train at'Waneta on  the 1st.  I beg to say that this delay is not any  fault of customs department or its employees, but on account of railway company, who retained train in order to  have freight go forward per same train,  which cannot go forward until proper  papers are made out.  Yours truly,  J. H. Nolan,  Customs Officer.  STREET  LIGHTING.  The ^following, which we take from  the Mining and Scientific Press, may be  of some use in view of the possibility of  having our streets lit this winter by  electricity.  Prof. W. A. Anthony, formerly of  Cornell University, has been, making  forcible objection to some of the methods in vogue for the subdivision and distribution of electric light or other artificial illumination. He is decidedly in  favor of the small unit or incandescent  lamp as compared with the large unit or  arc/whether we consider the illumination of a large space or ordinary street  linear lighting. Remembering that  nine 16-candle power-incandescent lamps  can be run with the power required for  one 405 Watt arc lamp, the arcs must be  nine times as far apart as the incandescent consuming the same power, and to  give the same illumination must be 81  times as intense, or about 1,300-candle  power. But in no. arc lamp as used for  street lighting do the rays proceed  toward the more distant points to be  illuminated reach more than a quarter  of-such intensity. Prof. Anthony expresses his opinion that the location of  arc lamps at intervals of 1,000 to 1,600  feet, as they are often seen in pretentious  villages or suburban towns, is an entire  waste of money. Incandescent lamps  at intervels of 100 to 200 feet, run by the  same power, would .-give a far better  illumination.  PIE?
