These gentlemen,  whrtjare connected with mining in the  eastern province, are much struck with  the wealth of the Kootenay district.  They have purchased some claims in the  Ainsworth district on behalf of a syndicate they represent in Nova Scotia.  Mr. McVicor intends to return at once  and settle with his wife and family in  Nelson.  caused at New Denver and Silverton by  the discoveries on a tributary of Four-  Mile Creek of what is srrpposed t.o be the  continuation of the vein of milling ore  found on the Silverton and Fisher-  Maiden. Ben. Fennell and the Thompson brothers have located live claims.  Mr. J. A.,Finch, after visiting his Four-  Mile properties and several other prominent claims on Four-Mile Creek, has left  to inspect some claims on the Kaslo side  of the divide. All the properleis are reported looking well.  Mr. Fred Hume visited New Denver  and Silverton, and neglected the opportunity of publicly addressing the electors.  Tlie visit, as far as we can judge, was  purely connected with business matters.  One result is that Mr. Twigg has set to  work to alter the survey of the Silverton  townsite.  H. Herman and Bill Hart are building  an hotel at that point, and the Balfour  Trading Co. contemplate opening a  branch store there.  The railroad will be finished to the  head of the lake by July loth.  Mr. Lang, who represents the Selby  Smelting Co. of San Francisco, paid his  lirst visit to New Denver. '*_'  Several placer claims have been located  on Trout Creek, situate twenty miles  south of Nakusp. Mr. Budd, who has  made the first locations, reports that  about 5000 feet of ground have already  been taken up.  Walter Hunt, a miner, has been killed  at the Mountain Chief by a landslide.  He-.lea.ves a wife and family.  "New Denver" -writes, "several. cases of  'claim j limping' have occurred during the  past week, one oi' which, at all events,  raises a'point of interest. Four men have  each a quarter interest in a churn, one of  the tour dies. The other men interested  fail to do the assessment work. Question,  is the ground-open for relocation ? If not,  ���������would the dead man's estate, under the  circumstances, become entitled . to the  whole claim. A second point of. interest  has been a subject of discussion, which Ave  put-as follows: A, a duly licopssd pr~;-  pector having used his own rights, obtains  leave of. a friend B, to locate in. his name.  A locates in B's name, and the folipwing  d&y B takes out a license and the claim is  recorded. Query, was tbe license taken out  in time."  [With regard to the first of these queries  we would "point out that the interest  of the deceased is protected for twelve  months, and it is possible that the law in  looking after that, covers also the interests  of the other three partners. The second  question raises a noint which can only be  decided'in ii court of law, but itis worth  remembering that Judge Spinks has de-  _cided"thatrit-is-not-necessary_������or"a-person-  to have a miners license at the time a transfer is made.  We are always glad to do what we can  towards answering questions, but we would  ^beg our correspondents to remember that  journalists are not lawyers, and in -the  present state of the miniug laws. of this  province; even a lawyer is liable to error.  Editor Miner.]  . William Hughes a miner was seriously  injured in No. .1 Tit Naoaiiro, the other  day by a falling rock. His spine was fractured and his leg broken.  Brsidstreets reports that "an important  decision involving the title to many thousand acres of mineral land along the  Northern Pacific Hail road was rendered recently by the United States Supreme Court.  It appears that deposits of gold and silver  were discovered on portions of the land  after the railroad hud taken , possession,  and a question was raised as to thc title to  the minerals. The Supreme Court decided  against the contention of the railroad company that the exemption of lands containing minerals (gold and silver) made in the  grant was limited to lands which were  known to contain these minerals at the  time of the act or location of the line of the  road. No grant to railroads, the court  said, had ever been held to pass title to  mineral land, and the practice of the Land  Department has uniformly been to refuse  to patent lands to a railroad company  known to contain minerals prior to the  date of patent.  In spite of the backward season it is said  that more than 400. men have gone into  the Yukon this year.  W. McCuIloch has returned from the  Slocan country where he has ^disposed of  . his share in the Idaho "No. 2. He leaves in  a few days for the Big Bend countrv,  where he expects to find gold leads in" a  part of that district which has not been  . hitherto prospected.  TRAIL CREEK.  Colonel Peyton of the Le Roi mine, according to the Spokane Beview, says. "We  are working three shifts regularly," he said  "Notwithstanding we have about 100 tons  on the dump, which we will be unable to  ship for at least 90. days, owing to the  washouts."  LOCAL NEWS.  A box containing some fine strawberries  was left at our ollice on Tuesday last.  They came from Mr. Robert Neeley's ranch,  four miles up the river.  The Hall Mines Company is calling for  tenders for the erection of two buildings  at the Silver King. Particulars will he  found iu cur advertising columns.  The trains on the Great Northern Rail-  wav are again running through between  Spokane and St. Paul, and the- C. & K. N.  '\Ju"s.'steameivcomniences her regular trips  to Bonner's Ferry on Monday next.  Mr. Alexander of the Kootenay Reclamation Company came c in from Calgary via  Kaslo on Monday, ;md left again for the  works-iu thc S.S. Dispatch on Tuesday.'  He states that the Hoods have ���������' not injured  the dykes.  The'C. &. K. S. N. Co. have arranged a  cheap return trip from Kootenay Lake  points to Nelson and back, for the convenience cf visitors to the Dominion Day celebration. Its time table is published in outadvertising columns.   TheJIallM iues.Co. has 400_ tons of ore  at thc Silver King ready for shipment aud  is calling for tenders for the trausport of  the same to Nelson. The company is also  calling for tenders for the haulage of fifty  tons of machine i y from Nelson to the mine.  In the House of commons at Ottawa,  Sir John Thompson moved on the 1st  inst. that "it is expedient to provide that  the salaries of the judges of the county  courts of Cariboo, New Westminster,  Yale, Nanaimo- and Kootenay in the.  province ot British Columbia shall be  $2000 each per annum." The object of  this resolution is to provide for a new  judge for the Kootenay district. The  new judge is to reside in South Kootenay on Kootenay Lake, and will hold  court at Nelson, Kaslo, -Three Forks,  New Denver and Nakusp..  The affairs of the Methodist Church in  Nelson, which for three years past have  beeu so ably handled by Rev. James Turner, will in future be administered by  Geo. H.Mordeu, who has for three years  been in charge of one of the . growing  braucnes, of this church., iu the city of"  Victoria. Mr. Morden arrived iu town  Wednesday night and entered immediately  upon his labours, taking charge of both  services (11 a. m. and 7.3Q p. m.) on Sunday  ciu the public school building. The text  for morning sermon will be, " I have a  message from God uuto thee," and for  the evening, " Go unto Nineveh that great  city and preach unto it the preaching that  I bid thee." The public is cordially invited to attend these services. Rev. J.'Turner goes to take charge of the cause ��������� in  Victorir, rendered vacant by Air. Morden's  removal.  Ji  We have received from Mr. Frank  Fletcher a copy of a new map of the  Kootenay district, which he has just  compiled.. The map embraces all the  country lying between the Okanagan  Lake on the west and the S.E. corner of  the province on the east and from the  49th degree, the boundary line between  (Canada and the United States on the  south to beyond the 52nd degree on the  north, thus takiug in the Big Bend of  the Columbia. It is drawn on the scaie  of six miles to one inch, and is therefore  country. The map is absolutely up to  date and gives information never before  plotted, for instance the eastern boundary line of the province is shown in its  right place. Hitherto it has been about  25 miles out. The correct form of Slocan  Lake is also shown. ..Not only does" the  map contain all'<the latest information  of the greatest use to men interested in  mining, and all real estate holders in the  district, but the work has been so admirably done both by draughtsman and  printer that everything it contains is  plainly seen at a glance. The printing  was done by Messrs. Mortimer & Co., of  Ottawa.  The flood of 1894 has been remarkable  for compelling the inhabitants of Nelson  to show how very badly they can write.  Usually the first thing a child learns is to  print capital letters. Most of the persons  who have disfigured the rocks on the bluff  opposite the town, either never went to  school, or left before their education was  fairly begun. In addition to inscribing  their names,' some would print a little  moral. "Read the book of nature," writes  "N. D.," ,but the tail of nature has such a  sag to it that we would suggest ''o N.D. to  go back to school and do some reading  himself. We are afraid someone has been  playing a joke off ou oiir contemporary for  its name is written up .there in red letters  of which three, the Ns', are written backwards. It is a little too bad to suggest  that the paper does not know how to write  its own name, but that is what .the record  on the rock says. We hone- all this daubing will be speedily obliterated and that it  will not remain as an evidence of the vulgar vanity of the people of Nelson in 1894.  We are sorry to see that, one person, with  very bad taste has painted some letters actually across the old Indians figures, which  have rendered this bluff famous and which  are the only curiosities Nelson possesses.  PROVINCIAL NEWS.  The Imperial Bank^will open a branch  in British Columbia.  .  There is a strike amongst the cannery  hands in the northern rivers of the  province.  Col. Baker is still working at the relief  of settlers in the Fraser Valley, and the  steamers Gladys and Courser are at work  taking supplies to flooded out families.  The. Y.M.C.A. does not seem to be a  .flourishing institution in British Columbia. Some time ago the branch at Victoria, was reduced to penury and now  the sheriff has seized the furniture of the  branch at Vancouver.  The Victoria Electric Loan debentures  amounting to 1355,000 have been sold in  Chicago at lOO^'. Messrs. Diiusmuirs  offered 100 for them. The city has gained  exactly ������137.50 by going to Chicago.0 We  wonder what it had to pay for commissions,  exchange and other.expeuses.  _ AT V* icfori aall ~t lie ""stone" masons em""  ployed on the new Government Buildings, about fifty in number, have struck  because the contractors refused to accept  a piece of work done by one of them.  The contractors state that they have  sent east for other men.  The C.P.R. is prosecuting an unfortunate  newspaper correspondent at Vancouver because he sent a rumour to his paper that a  party of excursionists was lost in the late  floods. At the same time, the same company is doing its best to hush up'the terrible smash that happened to one of its  express through trains at- Kamauistiqua,  by which several poople were, killed and  nearly all the mail and"express matter was  burnt.  ������������������ In tho coast cities the fear is increasing  that the disease, vaguely called the plague,  now raging in Hong Kong may be imported  to this province hy the steamers from  China. The word plague means no  disease in particular, but it is an old  English word which was applied in the  middle ages to any widespread epidemic,  such as cholera, or smallpox. It is possible that this so called "plague" at  Hong Kong may be cholera, in which case  no precautions agaiust it 'Introduction  should be omitted.    * ������" '  CANADIAN  NEWS.  A case of. smallpox is reported from  Hamilton, Ontario.  G. R. Cockburn, M.P., is the new president, of the Ontario Bank.  The C. P. R. Hotel at Macleod, N. W.  T., has been destroyed by fire.  Duncan Mclntyre, the well known  millionaire of Montreal, is dead.  At Three Rivers, Quebec, Thomas  Hooper has been found guilty of thc  murder of his wife, and sentenced lo 25  years penal servitude.  Dudley Foster, who had the reputation  of being the smallest man in the world,  died at Halifax of heart disease. Fester's height was thirty inches and his  weight never exceeded twenty pounds.  He travelled extensively during his  short.life���������seventeen years.  At Montreal last week a large number of unemployed held a meeting and  made some violent speeches. [t was  decided to present a petition to the city  council asking that the employment of  aliens be stopped, that water rates should  be abolished and that public work should  be given to the unemployed.  Speaking of the recent block on the  C. P. It., our contemporary The Province  says : "In view of the recent floods we  would like to know what the valua of  the C. P. R. is as a great military highway to defeud the East? AVhat would  have come of India, if it had been attacked before this three weeks blockade  in the mountains?. Much good the  troops would do upin the Rockies with  the Russians crossing the frontier. It  is too much, to hope that the leopard,  will change his spots, but it had better  change its route."  On the opening of the House of Commons at Ottawa on the 22nd, Harry  Corby, member for West 'Hastings, resigned his seat and left the chamber.  Mr. Edgar discovered Corby's name in  the Auditor-General's report down for  $4,500, paid to him by tho government  for non-potable spirits used in the manufacture of methylated spirits. Corby  merely explained he was ignorant of  violation of the law. The house cheered  Corby on his leaving the chamber, and  Edgar praised his manly action. McCarthy suggested legislation to relieve  Corby of. the consequences of his act,  which was cheered. West Hastings is  now vacant.  That very eccentric young man, the  Emperor of Germany, in a speech to a  Regatta Committee stated that he had a  rowing apparatus with a sliding seat fitted  up in one of the rooms of the palace, upon  which he practised every morning. We  suppose that if he is ever called upon or  volunteers to speak at a funeral, he will  say that he has a private coffin fitted up, in  his bedroom and practises being a corpse  every evening.  Miss Amanda Helderstrandt, a teacher  in a school at Seattle, has died from injuries* she received from fire. A tall  lamp.was knocked over, and her clothes  caught fire. Although many people  were present, they seem to have* lost  their' heads, and the poor girl was ter- .  ribly burnt before two men threw their  clothes around her. The flames still not  being quenched, a pprson turned a water  hose on to her, which probably did as,  much towards killing her as the fire.  London has another murder mystery.  A well dressed couple took a room recently at a second class hotel in Westminster. Breakfast was served them in  their room. At about noon, the chamber  maid being unable to enter, or to get  any answer to knocks, the door was  broken in. The woman had disappeared,  the man lay dead on the bed. An empty  bottle which had contained, poison stood  on a table. The dead man has been ���������  identified as Dr. Edwin Tyler, son of Sir  J. W.'Tyler, a high official in the North  West Provinces of India. No clue has  been obtained as to the identity of the  woman.  Thc movements of the Chinese navy are  arousing suspicion on the Western Pacific.  Early in the month the Viceroy Li Hung  Chang left Tientsin with a large following  of notables and grandees for the purpose  of holding a great uaval review and inspecting the northern ports. He notified  foreigners that their presence would not  be required. The British Admiral, Sir  Edmund Frecmautle, however, was not  going to be kept iu the dark so he suddenly  found pressing business in the northern  seas and set off as fast, as possible in" H.  ���������M. S. Alacrity. Tlie French Admiral, not ���������������>'  to be out of ,the running, instructed the  Captain of the French cruiser Inconstant  to proceed also in the.same direction with  all speed. The two commanders have not������  yet returned. The Chinese North Coast  fleet consists of four armour clad battle  -ships, one.turretsbin,.three cruisers, .four  torpedo cruisers and eleven gunboats,.'  twenty-three ships in all, making' a formidable fleet.

An anarchist plot has been discovered  having for.its object the. destruction ot  the United State's Capitol and the White  House at Washington by dynamite.  Itis said that Sir William, Harcourt,  leader of the Liberalparty in "'the.House of  Commons,\vill retire at the end of this  season and " be elevated ' to the House of  Lords. '   "  For $5000 a man consented to allow  certain doctor's in South America to  bore a hole in him to see how he worked.  He was so bored with the proceedings,  however, that he died.  Mr. Gladstone's eyesight promises to  be as good as evpr, and as the loss of it  was  his excuse- for  retiring, there  ap  pears to be nothing to prevent his entering public life again.  Since the first week of May a disease  described as "the plague" has been  raging at Hong Kong and 1700 Chinamen have died of it. European residents  apparently are not attacked.

Any one  leading the papers might suppose that  this was quite a novelty.  DEATH OF ARCHBISHOP TACHE.  Archbishop Tache died at Winnipeg on  the 22nd inst. We take ..the following account of his adventurous life from an exchange:  Alexander Antonine Tache was born in  Rivicre-du-Loup,- Canada, July .23,' 1823,  .was. g ra duated _a_t_ _the_C_o.J loge^o.f_S t._H ya7__  cinth, and studied theology iu the Seminary at Montreal. He returned to St. Hyacinth as professor of mathematics, but after"  teacniug for a few months went to Mon-  treal and became a monk of the Oblate  order. He volunteered -at once for' missionary service among the Iudians of the  Red River, and aftor a journey of sixty-two  days, during which he encountered sufferings and privations of every kind, reached  St. Boniface. August 25, 1845. He was  raised to the priesthood on October 12  following, being the .first priest ordained  on the banks of the Red- River. In July,  1S46, he set out for Ue-a-la-Crosse, -and  after spending a few months at  that mission went to labour among the  Indians that lived around the lakes several  hundred miles to the northwest. On one  of lys journeys he slept for sixty nights iu  the open air in winter, and ho "often travelled thirty or forty leagues with the temperature 25 or 30 degrees below zero, iu the  hope of ..converting a single Indian; He  was summoned to France by the superior  of- the Oblate fathers, and consecrated,  bishop of A rath iu the cathedral of Viviers  November 23, 1851. After a visit to'Rome  in February, 1852, and on September 10th he  reached Ile-a-la-Crosse, which he had determined to make the centre of his labours in  the Northwest. He became bishop of St.  Boniface June 7,1853. In 1869 he laid tho  grievances of the Metis (half breeds) before  the Canadian government, and endeavored,  without success, to persuade the latter not-  to make any changes in the political situ-",  tion of the inhabitants of the Red River  without consulting them. He then sailed  for Italy in order to take part in the coun- .  cil of the Vatican at Rome. Meanwhile  i the troubles came to a crisis. In 1S70 the  (half breeds, led by Louis Riel, rose in re-  i hellion. The Canadian ministry, alarmed  , at the attitude of the Metis and"regretting  i too late that they had not followed Tache's  i advice, begged him to come to their assis-  i tance. He at once returned to Canada and  Canada and reached the Red River  ���������on March 9.. 1870, empowered, in the  name of the Imperial and Dominion governments, to offer a full pardon for all  political offenses committed during the insurrection. This ended the revolt. In 1885,  when Riel and his half breeds broke out  , again the Canadian government mowed  them down with machine guns and hanged  Riel. ���������ii -  TROUBLE  IN THE COiUR D'ALENE.  A telegram from Wallace, Idaho, to the  Spokane Review says :  WaTjIjAce, Idaho, June 23.���������Special.]���������  The Butte agitators of the miner's union  have resumed their lawless tyranny of  coercion, i'ltinridation and expulsion of  law abiding citizens. This action was  decided upon at an exciting meeting of the  union at Gem, Friday night. The agitators  were opposed by a majority of the union  men at Gem, but carried their point by  bringing down a lot of their followers from  Burke and voting them as they wished.  This, with the intimidated members of the  Gem union, bore down the opposition aud  carried the day.  ;-As a result of this action, more than 30  men have been ordered to leave the country, and five of the intimidated citizens  have already complied with the demand,  believing that to refuse would be to sacrifice their lives.  It is generally understood that a number  of mine superintendents and shift, bosses  are on the blacklist aud will be ordered to  leave the country.  Among those blacklisted  at Gem ��������� are :  Copper, Chenowith, Hunter and Bowers,  all with families; Nebo. Rodgers,  Crum-  mer, general manager of the company, and  Cameron.   It is understood that the union  will "insist ou these  men   leaving.    The  union men say they will not work with  them, but will go on a strike if  they are  not discharged and sent out of the country.  It is not believed that the Gem company  will acceed to these   demands,  but will  rather close down its mine and fight, it out.  The movement has been kicked  up by  the agitators���������men who won't work and  who, finding themselves hard up,  want to  stir up another bad strike and get money  and provisions from outside workiugmen.  One of the ringleaders at Gem is Paddy  Burke, who has uot done a day's work in  three years;   yet he is  always   supplied  with money, and loses hundreds of dollars  at gambling   g������.mes.     " I dou't have  to  work," he boasts, "because the working-  men are my friends."  Another    "influential"���������< man    is    Kid  Anderson, secretary of the union, who has  IHE MINER,  NELSON   B. C, SATURDAY, JUNE 30,   i894  NELSON  LOTS  A new Railway under Construction.

JUDGES  ACCOUNT  OF THE  FLOODS.  Some idea of the magnitude of the recent flood along the Fraser river and its  'tributaries may he formed from the following   figures   given   hy   Mr.    Justice  Walker n, who on the .way to-Kamloops  to preside at the assizes,   after reaching  , his  destination,  was detained for two  weeks or upwards by the interruption to  traffic. "The water in thegorgespanned  by   the   suspension   bridge,"   says   his  Lordship, ''rose S6 fcefc higher than at its  low stage, when its depth is 9G feet, so  that there was in all the immense depth  of 182 feet of water. - At Hell's Gate as I  was informed by the road superintendent,  it   had   risen   probably   HO   feet  above low level; and-- at any rate Hell's  Gate   was   out   of    sight���������totally   submerged.      At   Kamloops    the    North  Thompson had risen 27 feet above low  water mark, and there was the same rise  in the vast  body   of water known as  Kamloops Lake.   The large provincial  bridges at Savona,   Ashcroft,  Spence's  Bridge and Lytton,. all of a very substantial character,   were   swept away.  While the water of the Fraser River in  the flood of 1876 differed little in height  from the flood of this year,  the Thompson was very much higher than during  its flood of 1876.   The water in the twe J  rivers rose and fell this year at different  times and varying heights. This was  no doubt due to the fact that a greater-  or less amount of cold, as the case might  be, had occurred at certain times about  the sources of the respective rivers. It  might be cold at the source of one, and  not so cold at the source of the,other.  "The Mission bridge with stood an immense strain, in -two instances against  huge trees which had been floated down  in an upright position, the earth about  the roots apparently keeping them erect.  Neither of these trees could have been  less than sixty or.eighty feet high. -The  current swung one of them roots foremost under the bridge, the bed of which  'cutoff the branches as clean as a scythe.  would cut grain.  '.'The cloud burst which broke at Pen-  nie's ranch destroyed the bridge hear  there and stopped the east bound train  on the 2nd of .June. It caught up one of  Pennie's most valuable horses, spun  the animal for a time in the "air, and  then dashed it down the chasm crossed  by the bridge."  His Lordship states that the reports  from the interior, where the floods did  not extend, show the stock to be in good  condition. While in Kamloops he tried  three prisoners who elected to take  speedy trial. Two were discharged, and  the third, a rather daring character  named Huntington, convicted of breaking open a safe, was sentenced to two  years' imprisonment. The assizes had  to be postponed on account of the interruption of travel caused by the floods  those at Kamloops to the 23rd of Sep  tember and the others to dates to be  fixed hereafter.���������Colonist.  plans of ihe same can be seen at tlio Lands and  Works Department, Victoria, and at the oflice of  N. .fcifczstuobs.Esq., Assistant Commissioner of  Lands and AA'orks, Nelson:  ^_" -Lot_172.���������"Jdaho'LMincral Claim. ..      =   .

NELSON,    B.C.  anarchism;  The assassination of President Carnot is  the culminating point of all the crimes that  have been committed in the name of anarchism. It has been a moot question, how  long the civilised world would put up with  the existence amongst its members of certain men who are so dead to all human and  ," natural feeling, that in the prosecution of  an idea in which they believe, they are willing to carry death and destruction and all  the tortures and miseries that follow "in  their train to innocent vtctims, whose  martyrdom cannot in auy way advance the  objects they have in view. It will be an  opportunity now for civilisation to put her  foot down. The crime has awakened a  sense of liorror. all over the civilised world.  There is something repugnant to all human  ideas in cowardly assassination, but when  the assassin has no quarrel personally with  the victim, the mob expresses very plainly  the opinion of the majority when it wants  to tear the murderer to pieces. Unfortunately tearing one criminal to pieces  has no more elTect ou anarchism generally  than executing him iu the..ordinary- way-  has. His comrades look upon him as a  martyr, extol his deeds to the sky and pie-  pare to imitate him. These people eeem to  be possessed of a mania over which the  terrors of the law have no powers. Some  other method must be adopted to stamp  out the disease. Fortunately in our British  communities we are fairly free from  crime of this kind. The mob in London,  though perfectly willing to sack the West  End shops, howl and screech aud wave the  - red flag in Hyde Parle, and talk sedition  and treason at the top of its voice, stops  dismayed before the dread crimes of anarchism itself. Only ihe other day in Lon-  don the mob dispersed the followers at an  anarchist funeral, and let it be generally  understood that no busiuess of that kind  would be permitted in old England.   But  .England's continental neighbours have a  serious problem before them, and England  and the United States have their parts to  play in the busiuess on hand. For though,  as we say, Englishmen are uot the stuff of  ���������which anarchists are made, yet the very  same wise laws which  give to Englishmen  - -the freedom which prevents their ever becoming anarchists, permits those human  . tigers to find a shelter from, their pursuers  ^under her protecting flag. In the United  States" uot only do0 they liud the same  shelter, but amongst her varied population  they find congenial friends to encourage  .their fiendish^ proclivities. Great Britain  the United States will 'have to join with  the continental nations of Europe in any  remedies that may be suggested to cure  the social canker. And most willinglywill  they do so. Already iu the United States  the following bill has beeu presented in the  -House and referred to the judiciary committee: - "  That any person -who shall belong to, or who  shall be applied, or designated by, any soeietv or  organization existing in this country or any foreign country, which provides in Writing or by  yerbal agreement, understanding or countenance  for-thei taking of human life unlawfully, or for the  - unlawful destruction of buildings or other property, where loss of human life is probable as  ��������� the result or such destruction of property, shall  tie deemed an anarchist. Any person or persons  being anarchists, as defined by the first section of  this act, who shall attempt thc life of any person  holding an office, elective or appointive, under  the laws of the United States, or who shall attempt the destruction of buildings or other properties where the loss of life of any such official  would be the result of such destruction of buildings or other property, shall, upon trial and conviction 111 any circuit or district court of the  district where the oifense is'attempted, be sentenced to death by hanging by the marshal of the  district in accordance with the verdict of the  judge by whom the case was tried.  "      GIVE A POOR DOG A BONE.  Mb. G. 6. Buchanan addressed a political meeting at* Kaslo on Tuesday last  and met with a, warm reception. Vainly  the audience endeavored to get some explanation of tlie ideas of the opposition.  Mb. Hume and his supporter, Mr.  Houston, were known to be in town  and it was hoped that either one or both  would address the meeting. Loudly  were they called but they refrained  (wisely for them) from appearing. -It is  difficult to enter into the feelings of any  one in this district at this time who  wants to vote for the opposition candidate. But we fancy that, even the  stanchest Humbite must be somewhat  offended at being left out in������thecold,  arid in utter ignorance of his candidate's  opinions. True, the Platform of the  convention was hurled at him like a bone  to a dog at any early period of the proceedings. The ranks of the opposition  have been chevying that bone ever since  and beginning to find. out that though  excellent for sharpening their teeth ont  there is nothing on itto eat. We pointed  this out long ago, but when would any  one suffering from the pre verse opinions  of an oppositionist, believe anything  that they were told by the other side?  To them to be a government supporter  means that one must be a liar and all  sorts of dreadful things. But they are  beginning to find out the truth of what  we told them. The men of Kootenay  are not fools. Some of them profess to  be dissatisfied with the present government and expressed their determination  of voting against the government candidate. But that does not necessarily  mean that they will vote for the opposition man. No, if Mr. Hume cannot tell  them a little more about his opinions  and theories, they will remain at home  and not vote at all. And they are quite  right. Why should t hey vote for a man  of whom, politically, they know absolutely nothing? They would be fools to do  so, and as we have already said, the men  of Kootenay are not fools by any means.  Why, Mu. Hume might turn-out to be a  government man for aught they know,  and then how sorry they0 would be at  having been hoodwinked into voting for  liim. But they have another cause of  complaint. If a candidate asks an elector for his vote, it is a direct insult to  his intelligence it* he does not explain  his policy. It is as much as to say "I  want you to vote for me on general  principles% but you are too stupid and  ignorant to understand my reasons, so I  will not trouble to tell them to you."  EUROPE.  can get of Africa's rich territory, and in the  tearing of the carcass the animals may yet  come to deadly combat.  SIGNS OF THE TIMES.  Early in the spring we were able to  congratulate our fellow townsmen on  the number of new buildings that had  been built or were in course of erection.  Summer has come. Those houses are  finished and others are in hand. Capt.  Troup is finishing a house up on Stanley  street and Mb. Croasdaile will shortly  be building on his lots higher up. Meantime our readers will be glad to hear  that arrangements are being made by  which the long delayed electric light  scheme will be brought into operation.  We believe that in a month from now  anyone who desires it will be able to  have his house lit with electricity. The  saving to householders will be enormous.  We hope at the same time that some arrangements will be made for lighting  the streets. Twenty sixteen candle-  power incandescent lamps would do this  amply. The cost of those should not  exceed $16 per month. As an advertisement of the town they would be worth  that. Besides these solid improvements,  the side walks are receiving attention  and a band stand is being built at the  corner of Josephine and Baker streets.  No doubt these latter are a kind of tidying up in anticipation of our visitors on  Monday; but they show that we are  alive and kicking and no longer talk of  dull times, lt is rather that we have  just a little breathing time between the  spells of hard work.  The trouble about Morocco seems to have  blown over. Mulev Ismael lias accepted  the sovereignty oi' his nephew Abdul Azrz,  -the-late-Sultau's���������youngest-son,-a-boy-ot  fourteen. Speaking at a Trinity House  Banquet, Lord Rosebery summei up the  situation. He declared his conviction that  the statesmen of Europe were too wise and  contained to allow, trouble,, to grow out of  the death of the late Sultan. But there is  still friction between France and.Eogland  over the part of the Congo Free State,  which by an Anglo-Belgian treaty has just  been leased to England: In the same  speech the British Premier warned France  and her Foreign Minister against violent  methods in dealing with this question. In  order to understand, this question, it is  necessary to look at the map of Africa. It  will be seen that between the British possessions recently acquired and- known as  British South Africa aud those known as  British East Africa, lie "the Congo Free  State, which is under Belgian protection,  aud the German possessions in East Africa.  Under the treaty just concluded between  Belgium and Great Britain, a broad strip  of territory along the eastern frontier of  thc Congo Free State has been leased to  the British government to form a means of  communication between its possessions in  the north and those in the south. France  has little or no interest in the matter, her  possessions in Africa lying far to the west,  but she professes to be highly incensed at  this acquisition of a right-of-way by England, and she is entering a violent protest  against it. At the same time Germany objects to the same concession, but instead of  entering an angry protest as France has  done, she demands the status quo from the  Congo Free State in language that is not  theless plain and to point, because it is !  couched in the polished periods of diplomacy. France hates Germany with a bitter hatred. She ha3 never forgiven her for ���������  the thrashing she got four and twenty;  years ago, and it will be curious to see how  she will pull in the same boat with her detested enemy. The great nations of Europe  are all seizing upon the largest slices they  A proposal has been made by Sir  George Dibbs, Premier of New South  Wales, that that colony and Victoria  should unite under the title of the  United Colonies of Australia. His idea  is that the union of these two principal  colonies would form a nucleus to which  Queensland and South Australia and  probably Tasmania and West Australia  will eventually be attracted, the name  to be changed then to The Dominion of  Australia. There are several difficulties  to be overcome before this result is  arrived at. New South Wales is a free  trade colony, while Victoria is protected  by duties as absurdly high as those of  Canada. > Which is to give way ? Another obstacle to this federation is that  the people do. not care a scrap about it,  nor can auy one show how they are to  be benefitted by it. Sir George Dibbs  ^night be made a peer if it came off and  that is probably the secret spring of the  whole business.  NOTICE.  !      THE HALL MINES, Limited.

C, SATURDAY,  JUNE  30,  ������������������"&  I  I  [894.  ASSASSINATION   OF  THE  PRESIDENT OF FRANCE.  M. Carnot, President of the French Republic, was assassinated in Lvons on Sunday last.  The President was visiting Lyons iu  connection -with' the International Exhibition. After spending some time at the  exhibition he proceeded to the Palais de  Commerce, where a banquet was given iu  his honor.  . At 9 o'clock at night President Carnot  Btarted for the theatre, where a gala performance was to be given because of his  presence. Several carriages were in the  procession, the lirst being occupied bj the  President. Carnot's carriage was driven  slowly along in front of the Palais de  Commerce and then turned into the Rue  de la llepublique, still following the  facade of the palace. When half way  > down the street, which was lined with  enthusiastic crowds of people, Avho were  loudly cheering, a man rushed out of the  crowd and sprang upon the step of the  President's landau.  Just at this moment M. Carnot was  waving his right hand and saluting with  his hat in response to the ovation lhat was  being given him by the crowd. The people  close to the carriage saw the man standing  on the step, .knife in hand. By the glare of  the electric lights they saw a bright biade  gleaming in the air as the assassin's arm  descended, and then President Carnot was  seen to fall back in his seat, his face  deathly pale. One of his hands was pressed  to his heart, where the steel had entered  the body.  Amid the intense excitement it was not  easy to make a way for the carriage, but at  length a passage was opened by the Guards  and it was driven to the Prefecture.   On  arriving there,  General Borius - and  the  mayor alighted.     President   Carnot   lay  unconscious    on    the   cushions    of   the  carriage.   His eyes Avere closed. His waistcoat was unbuttoned and his   shirt,   on  which the bright red cord of the Legion of  Honor was conspicuous,  was covered on  the left side, just over the heart by a large  bloodstain which extended to the- hip.   It  was impossible to tell from his appearance  whether he was dead or alive.   A crowd  surrounded the carriage, but the mounted  guards and foot police held them in check  some distance from the landau which the  President was lying in.    Mauy-Nvere the  expressions of pity for the President and  anger at his assassination.  General Borious, the Prefect and the  mayor, assisted by a number of attendants,  lifted M. Carnot from his carriage and  carried him as easily as possible to a room  on the first floor of the prefecture aud laid  him on the bed. Dr. Gailleton then  ���������examined the wound. After examining the  President's Avound all the physicians - in  attendance said an operation was necessary, whereupon Dr. Ollyer probed the  wound. While" this was being done M.  Carnot came to his senses and said feebly  but distinctly : " How you are hurting  me." The doctor continued to work at thc  wound, the outside flow of blood having  stopped. They knew, though, that "the  President's condition Avas extremely grave,  as they more than suspected that internal  hemorrhage had commenced. After Carnot  had been taken from his carriage and  placed upon the bed in the'prefecture uo-  "bodybu t_the~"doc tor^^hli^the^officers" oT  the military household were allowed to  enter the room.to which he had been  carried.  Shortly    after    midnight    Archbishop  Lyons was summoned to the bedside of  a few minutes they were convinced that  the report of the attempt on the life of the  President was true.  Santo the assassin was born at Mottaris-  conti," northwest of Pavia, December, 1873.  He is a baker and was tried iu Milan in  1892 for breach of the peace but was  acquitted. Santo delivered anarchist  lectures of the vilest character before going  to Switzerland last year. There no longer  seems to be doubt that the assassination  was the result of an anarchistic conspiracy  to avenge the death of Vail hint and Einile.  Later ou, before the examining magistrate Santo declared himself an anarchist.  He said he acted upon his own initiative.  He has not been engaged iu any conspiracy,  nevertheless, it has been ascertained when  Santo stopped at Vienna and Montpelier,  he had several conferences with persons  suspected of being in league with  anarchists. The police have already arrested three persons at Vienna believed to  have been engaged in the conspiracy.  BRITISH COLUMBIA ffiOS" WORKS  [WHEREAS it  1   " v     is desirable  RIOTS AGAINST THE   ITALIANS.  As soon as the murder was committed the  mob began attacking the shops aud dwellings of Italians at Lyons and a serious  disturbance was with the greatest difficulty  prevented by the police. On the 26th at  Grenoble, a town in the Department of  Isere, not far from Ljons, several rioters,  headed by a drunken carpenter, entered the  Italian consulate, tore up the Italian flag,  smashed the escuteon, broke the furniture, threw the statues upon the floor,  and seizing upon two huge and handsome  oil paintings, representing King Humbert  and Queen Margaret of Italy, threw them  into .the street.  THE  NEXT  PRESIDENT.  It is believed that ex-Premier Cassimir-  Perier, now President of the Chamber of  Deputies, has the best chance of succeeding the late"President, Challemel Lecour,  President of the Senate, Caviguac Dupuy,  Br-issou, Coustatjs and General Saussier  are also mentioned.  A later telegram says at a meeting of the  Republican deputies and senators called to  decide upon a candidate for- the presidency,  the members of the chambers were unable  to come to an agreement, and the meeting  culminated in an uproar,, during which  Deputies Berteaux and Sauzet came to  blows. The result of the encounter is that  both gentlemen have appointed seconds  and a duel will shortly be fought.  [L.S.] '   E. DEWDNEY.  CANADA.  PROVINCE OF imiTISET COLUMBIA.

' He was in the  , room but a short time wheii he retired to  the adjoining room. He remained until  12.30 o'clock and he was again summoned  to the President's room, where he administered the sacrament. Carnot" remained  conscious to the lust. He realized that  his life was rapidly ebbing away and twice  said, " Where are my friends." Dr. Poncet  leaned over.the bed and said to him, "Your  friends are here, Monsieur le President."  ;Carnot replied : "I am grateful for their  presence." A minute later he gasped for  breath, there was a convulsive shuddering  of his body and the President of France  was dead.  .Meanwhile the assassin had been at once.  captured by the police who, aided by the  mounted troopers,   with   great   difficulty  prevented the mob Jrom tearing the man  to pieces.    Then   a   cordon .-was formed  around  the almost exhausted police and  their captive, and the march to the police  station began.   A cordon surrounded the  prisoner, for the men  in the crowd made  frautic efforts to reach him.   Guards repelled these attacks with the flat sides of  their   swords, at the same time keeping  watchful eyes upon the crowd to prevent  the prisoner from being shot. Maledictions  were hurled upon the captive and never  before has such wild indignation-against a  hjman being been seen in this city. ,  ,    Meanwhile news of the assassination caus-  ' ed a great sensation at the Grand Theatre,  which was filled to the walls by the elite  of Lyons. The theatre presented a brilliant!  scene, the handsome toilettes of the ladies j  being offset by the gay uniforms of many j  military officers present.   All were waiting  with impatience .the arrival of the Presi-!  ���������> dent and all jsvere unable to understand I  the delay.   Suddenly a. man entered the j  theatre   crying   at the top of his  voice, j  "The President has been  assassinated."!  Most  intense   excitement   followed   the  abrupt announcement.   Women screamed  and several fainted.   Many men, without  ��������� waiting  for   their hats, ran   out   of   the  building in order   to   confiim the news.  They found all the streets leading to the  palace filled with excited throngs,  and in  TO     WINNIPEG  WATER.  Winnipeg a seaport, town is a novel  and fascinating idea. At present the sea  is such a long way off that Manitobans  are compelled to do their seaside, so to  speak, at the. Lake of the Woods. But  in a letter that appeared in Tuesday's  Daily Free Press, Dr. Orton tells us that  Winnipeg can be made a seaport with  hardly any trouble, and at comparativelv  little expense. A great many people  will doubt this, of course, but since the  construction of the Canadian Pacific  Raihvay round Lake Superior and  through the Rocky Mountains in half  the time stipulated by contract, other-  people have ceased to doubt any egin-  eei-ing proposition. A competent engineer, an experienced contractor, an  easy money market, and anything goes;  -under--snc-h--a-c.oinbin"atio"n"**"of"faA~oTimble  circumstances we might even get the St.  Andrews rapids locked. Concerning Dr.  Orton's proposed waterway between  Hudson's Bay and Winnipeg, only the  opinion of a professional man who had  studied the question and carefully inspected the route, would be of any value.  From the utility point of view, all are  competent to form an idea, and the general opinion will probably lie that such a  means of transport would be of great  value to-the Northwest.��������� Manitoba Free  Press.  of  Delta.
