Previous  to'his departure he posted notices applying for Crown Grants for several of  the Alpha group of claims. f-.  Several of our  leading business  men  have been inspecting a proposed route,  for -a-sleig-h- road- from --hove- to- Thu'o*?-  Forks up the bed.of the creek.  Slocan Lake should be better known  than it is by those who :enjoy fishing.  Recently F. F. Macnaughien and E.  Mahoir have been proving that- the  month of Carpenter Creek affords first-  class sport. Tlie trout, which are just  now in first-class condition, take a fly  readily. Given such weather as we  have been experiencing recently we can  imagine nothing more enjoyable than  an autumn holiday devoted to sport on  Slocan Lake.  'Speaking' of the new discoveries at the  foot of Slocan Lake our correspondent  ���������writes:^- The claims on-which-t he-most-  recent strikes have been made are  reached fronrthe foot of t he lake (Slocan)  bv going about eight miles up" Springer  Creek, without a trail. They sire almost  on the divide between this and Ten Mile  Creek, which flows into Slocan Lake  about six miles .south of Four Mile  Creek, and were staked by Con Fielding  and R. Cooper-. The ore found was a  high grade dry ore similar to that discovered on the Fisher Maiden. N,o work  has been dime.on these, clai ns.as snow  ���������would soon stop work at that, altitude  unless preparations had been made.  A rich strike haa been made on the  Good-enough. It consists of a lead of  liigh grade ore about a foot wide going ou  analysis from 900 to 1,100 dollars to the  ton. The lead extends iiito the Rueccriu.  At present they are bagging it from the  surface cropping!*.  ROSSLAND.  (From our own correspondent.)  The railway grade wagon road has  been completed from Northport to  Rossland and a daily stage runs between  the two places, a distance, of 17 miles.  Most of the ore will probably be hauled  this way in winter instead of going by  Trail. The teams can be ferried across  the Columbia, which will save the transfer by the steamer.  There are at present 82 men at work  at the Le Roi mine, 15 men at the War-  Eagle, eight at the O. K. and four at  the Cliff. The Nickel Plate and Josie  will also resume work as soon as snow  comes for sleighing. The Le Roi alone  will ship 80 tons a day as soon as sleighing commences and the others together  probably as much more.  The O. K. stamp mill is running on  ore that has been culled over three, times  and yet is found very profitable working.  Since your last issue your correspondent made a short visit to Trail and  Rossland.  At the first named place the steamer  Lytton was loading ore from the Le Roi  mine for Northport, carrying about 50  tons each trip. The steam barge Illi-  cilliwaet has been tied up the past week,  but will resume her daily trip and carry  about 30 tons a day.,  At Trail Topping and Hanna are  erecting an hotel 25 x 60, which will accommodate a large number of guests.  Going on tip to Rossland, a distance of  eight miles it was surprising to find so  pretty a townsite among the hills.  Rossland has a very open location, with  the best mines actually adjoining the  townsite. The place is growing rapidly  and promises in a very short time to be  a flourishing town. The monthly pay-  list is about $4,000.     .  KASLO.    .       .      .���������    uit    ..  (From our own correspondent.)  The .Wonderful, on Carpenter Creek,  it is expected will ship about 200 tons of  ore this season.  The Carbonate has five tons of picked  ore ready for shipping and 15 tons of  fairly good ore on the dump.  Ed. Ward has recovered the use of his  eye, .which was hurt with a piece of  steel while working on the Deadman.  Several cases of typhoid-malaria are  reported, Mrs. Ingram being one of the  latest sufferers.  A dance _was given at the Hotel  Slocan Friday night. Several couples  participated.  S. J. Henderson has renioved his stock  of gents' furnishings to A Avenue.  Grading and " street improving still  continues and the appearance of the  streets is much improved thereby.  The, Kaslo Transportation Co. have  removed their old stables from across  the creek to the upper end of Front  street;       . .*"* ,  The first annual meeting of the Nelson  Hydraulic Mining Co., is advertised to be  held at, the Company's office on the 5th  prox. at 11 a. m..  The C. & K. Navigation Company intend  to add 21 feet, amidships, to the S. S.  Lytton dunug tbe winter. The work will  be carried out at Nakusp.  The subject of discourse at, the Methodist services in Hume's Hall on Sunday  are announced by the pastor as follows :  11 a. m. "Solid Comfort." 7.30 p. m. "A  Losing Game."  Mr. John Houston, pE the Tribune,'was  convicted in the Stipendiary Magistrate's  Court, last Saturday, of a common assault  on Mr. A. M. Johnson. He pleaded guilty  and was fined $20 and costs and was bound  over to keep the peace for a term of six  months.  We have reason for staling that the  British Columbia Southern Railway will be  commenced at an early date. This line  when completed wil connect Nelson with  the coal deposits of: tlie Crow's Nest Pass,  and also give us yet another outlet to the  United States.  It will be good news to our readers to  learn that work has actually been commenced on the line from Five Mile Point  to Nelsou. About forty men are employed  to which number an increase will shortly  be made, aud the officials of the line confidently assert that it will reach Nelson iu  60 days.  The appointment of Mr. George Martin  to the post of Chief Commissioner of Lands  and Works is Gazetted. Mr. Martin who  at the last elections was returned for North  Yale, has returned to his constituents for  re-election, and itis understood that he will  be opposed by John Edwards. The nomination day was last Wednesday and the  election is to take place on the 2ith.  Mr. R.. G. McConnell of the Dominion  Geological Survey has finished his field  work for the season and returns to Ottawa  on Suuday. The work on which he is at  present engaged covers a piece of ground  of seveuty miles square. To .those acquainted with this country the roughness  of that square and tlie difficulty of moving  about in it are well known. Mr. McConnell estimates that it will take two seasons  more to finish the job.  Judge Walkera arrived on Tuesday last  aridis erjyiiKuil-'ii revising the Dominion  voters' list. His task is no light oue. The  constituency extends from the U. S. boundary to the northern limits of. the province,  from the Rocky Mountains on the east to  about the meridian of Agassiz ou the west.  In other words Lillooet and Cariboo- have  been added to Yale. Judge Walkeiu is  dividing this huge extent iuto about 60  districts, iu each of which there will be a  returning officer. Those in this neighborhood are Nelson, Ainsworth, Kaslo, New  Denver, Fire Valley. Waneta, Goat River,  Lardeau, Trout Lake and Revelstoke. The  lists of provincial voters' are being adopted,  but any persons whose names are not on  these should apply at once to be registered.  and the woman wanted him to return  to her. Turner's mother is dying from  the shock. He belonged to one of the  leading New Westminster families. He  was a fast bicylist, and a member of the  Canadian firing team which went to  Wimbledon. The woman was formerly  a stenographer in San Francisco. She  is in jail.    Turner is recovering.  CANADIAN   NEWS.  "General" Booth of the Salvation Army is in Montreal.  There is a slight epedimic of typhoid  fever in Winnipeg.  Eight  hotel  men  in   Winnipeg have  ���������been summoned for permitting gambling  in licensed houses by having a nickel-in-  the-slot machine in the saloon.  A post oflice has been opened at Fort  Cudahy, on the Yukon river, where  Sergt. Brown, of the Northwest Mounted  Police, is wintering.  The new aqueduct company at Toronto  has commenced a $10,000 action for libel  against the Toronto World. The action  is due to the publishedstatemeiit accusing  the company of having endeavored to  bribe the aldermen by<-gifts of paid up  stock.  It is reported at Montreal that owing  to the extreme dullness of trade the  Allan, Dominion and Beaver line steamship companies have decided to lay up  this winter all their boats with the exception of those engaged in earring the  mails.  By a unanimous vote of the Toronto  city council it has been decided to request a judge of the county court to hold  an investigation into the charges of  boodling that have been made against  certain alder-meriin connection with the  electric light tenders.  A. Tourangeau, postmaster of Quebec,  died last week after a lingering illness.  He was at one time Mayor- and also represented one of the divisions of Quebec  in the house of Commons. In politics  he was a Conservative but lost his seat  at the elections which followed the advent to power of the Mackenzie-Dorion  administration.  WANETA.  (From bur own correspondent.)  Geo. J. Goodhue of the kootenay Hydraulic Company in a telegram from  Chicago to-day has ordered the company's saw mill to be moved .from the  old stand to Mr. Reith's ranch. The  company have-about a million feet of  lumber to be cut this fall and winter  and a pier 400 feet long to be constructed  in the bed of the Pend d' Oreille to form  a foundation for the water wheels and  pumping machinery. The first cost of  the plant is estimated above $80,000. Mr.  Goodhue will arrive soon and push the  work as rapidly as possible, as the pier  cail be put in only when the water Is  down in the winter.   The0 pier will be  Eiit in below the falls at Seven Mile  reek (seven miles from, the mouth of  the Pend d' Oreille) which afford an  excellent opportunity of utilizing the  immense water power.

The  tunnel is run on an incline and is in 52  feet. The Last Chance will be one of  the" new producers of 1891. About ,,30  tons of ore are now on the dump and  100 tons will be taken out during the  next" few weeks and brought to Three  Forks for shipment. The clean ore runs  205 ozs. in silver to the ton and ..the carbonates 96 ozs. Mr. E. H.Tomlinson  is now the sole owner.���������Prospector.  According to a letter communicated  to the Inland Sentinel a large body of  high grade copper ore going 71 per cent,  has been discovered in theSimilkanieen.  The three claims staked by the discoverer, Mr. A. R. Brown, are The Sunset,  "Vancouver and Helen H. Gardner. It  is expected that for the first 200 feet, of  which only 20 have been driven, to be a  concentrating proposition. The ledge  has been traced by croppings for a  length of 4,000 feet and for a breadth of  800 (sic) feet.  , The trial of Mr. "K*e������.tinr?.

Even the most enthusiastic  admirer of  Dr.   \V.   T.    Carver    cannot    doubt    the  superiority of J. A. R. Elliott over him at.  pigeon shooting at thirty yards rise and  fifty   yards   boundary.     Ail   question   as  to this was practically settled ac Exposition  park, Kansas City, by Elliott taking the-  third aud last match of the series by  a  score of 99 to 93.    In addition  to  winning  the decision shoot, Elliott's record of 199.  birds out of 200 in the last two matches is.  something   that   will   go down   in    trap  shooting as miraculous.  A mile above where the Bruneau enters the Snake River an immense darn  has been constructed and work is  being  prosecuted on ii great canal,   which will!  turn the water on  to,the  Snake River,  plains below and  reclaim  about 25,000  acres ofJand now arid.  The water from,,  the canal will also be employed to work  thousands of acres of rich placer grounds  along Snake River.    Tlie completion  of  this canal, the settling up of these rich  lands and the  working of  the  placers,  known to be rich, will add greatly to the  material prosperity of Owyhee  county,  Idaho.

Sunday  night  The Spokane Miner and Electrician says:  The decision in the case of Dr. Hendryx  and Capt. Hayward against the Hennessy  Brothers has caused much comment in  mining circles here. The case was a most  simple oue and involved no new principles,  but the parties to the suit were so well  known aud the property involved so valuable that it was but ratural that the interest taken in it should be out of ordinary.  Briefly stated, it was clearly shown by the  evidence that the plaintiffs gave one of the  Hennessys. money to prospect for them,  and the decision was that they were en-  tilled to, an interest in the locations made  while vising the money so paid. It only  emphasizes the hi;-ding 'character of such  agreements and the necessity for accurately  setting forth their terras in writing. -  More dog poisoning is going on. The  victims this time are two dogs belonging  to Messrs. Hodgius aud Finucane, and  '���������Jack" the well known terrier, the property  of Captaiir Pateraon of the S. S. Ainsworth.  Will it never be of any use to point out to  the dog poisoner the errors of his ways?  We quite admit that in" this and every  town there are curs who are a disgrace to  their kind and a nuisance to the public,  and if their owners want them, they should  be made to keep them where they are not  offensive. No one would complain if those  brutes were poisoned. But the poisoner  always seems to miss his aim. The valuable  and inoffensive dogs sre the victims, the  'vile curs whose owners ought to be asham-  of them, escape.  The "steamboat "Highland Maid has  been wrecked at Long Sault rapids,  Rainy Lake. The mail, passengers and  crew were saved. William Woods,  purser, was badly injured. The boat  and cargo are a total loss. The cause of  the accideut was low water and the dangerous rapids, full of rocks. This is the  second boat lost this season.    ���������  "o  J. G.

Berlin, Oct. 11.���������A member of the!  staff-of-the-RussiaiPeiubiissy-oi-this city���������  informed the Associated Press correspondent this evening that the Czar fully  expects to die, but is eager for his removal to Corfu, the latter step becoming  imperative, if the only chance to save  his life is taken. Prof. Leyden persists'  in his rather favorable diagnosis or! the  Czar's case, and he fully believes that if  it is left entirely iu his hands he will be  able to effect a cure.  The Czar is incessantly  worried,   first  about the apparently approaching death' .  of his son George, and secondly  by the  conduct/of the  Czarewitch,   who stub  bornly refuses to  many Princess Alix.  The Russians assign  the  refusal  to the  great love of tho Uziwewitch for his mistress, a beautiful Jewess,  who seems to  have such a hold upon him that tor  the  sake  of keeping her he  has offered to  renounce his right to the succession to  the throne.    At-the saine time the Czar  fears for the welfare of Russia,  perhaps,  for the peace of Europe, if a regency is  necessary.    These worries, Prof. Leyden  asserts, constitute the gravest feature, of  the Czar's case..  Berlin, Oct.

' f>  Advices received by great financial  houses in London are understood to confirm the worst news concerning the condition of the Czar of Russia. " His Ma-  jest y's condition is said to be hopeless  and his death can be delayed but a few  months. The general opinion in this  City coincides with that expressed in  Paris and Berlin, ico the effect that the  accession to the throne of the Czarewitch  will result in depriving France of a'  friend; Persons closely related with the  Czarewitch believe that when he ascends the throne he will materially alter  the policy pursued by his father and will  cultivate cordial relations with England  and Germany and hold aloof from  France.

The uses to which aluminum has so far been  put iu the arts may be divided into two  geueral classes; one for the fabrication iuto articles generally classed as "'fancy  goods," and the other for more staple  articles. Tne helling price of aluminum  was so high (above S.IG per pound) up to  the first oi' the '80s that the metal received  veiy few uses except 1" r expensive philosophical in.-.tmemeiHs and other such purposes, where the weight of metal used was  trilling ana* the work upon it of very much  larger value than the amount of aluminum  used.  The cheapening of the process of manufacture of metallic sodium (by the aid of  which all the uiumiuum produced on a  commercial scale up to the year 1888 was  made;, gradually lowered the price of aluminum, until it was selling m 1SSG at about  $8 per pound. The works of the tiociete d'  Auonynie d' Aluminum at Saimdres,  France, which produced the largest ,a-  mount of pure aluminum, had by that  time beeu enlarged aud systematized to  such a meritorious extent as to make a  very profitable busiuess for the owncis.    ������  The use of aluminum in the arts was  further encouraged m the years 1887"and  1888 by the investment oi large capital iu  the sodium process .of manufacture of the  metal by the Alliance Aluminum Company,  at Newcastle-ou-T'yue, and the Aluminum  Company, Limiteu, at Oidbury, near ihr  mingham, both iu England.  Unfortunately for these concerns, as  well as for the oider French manutaCuurers,  the new electrolytic method of manufaouire  of aluminum soon eclipsed. the older  method of manufacture by - tlie use oi  metallic sodium as a reducing agent, and  aluminum was Bold in the latter part ol:  the year 1888 aud the lirst or the year lo89  at the rale of one pound sterling perpou>>d  avoirdupois, although the iiist rae.ai sold  by the Pittsburg- Reduction Company an  1888 was sold at the rate of ������8 per pound.  In 1889 the rate for aluminum wu.-j i'luiber  reduced to *i51 per pound, and new usei  for the metal were brought out, u.> replace  brass, Germau silver and nickie work m  fancy yoods articles.  The Scoviii Manufacturing Company of  Waterbury, Conn., was one of the in.v. and  largest concerns to undertake this new  development of the use of aLurninum They  are to-day one of��������� the largest aud most  important concerns in^this country iu the  production of stamped aud spun articles  made from aluminum. -0   *'  The uses of aluminum up to 1890 were  almost altogether confined to what might  be classed as strictly fancy goods articles  made of the metal. With-the lowered raies  ���������of $2 per pound, and later 1^1.50 per.pound.  during 1890 1 and "It'Dl, veiy . considerable  ' uses'for aium.num begun to be louud.  As the lowered selling price of aluminum  had thus far been almost entirely put forward by American manufacturers of the  metal, so also the lirst deveiopinen': of the  use of aluminum in the more practical and  staple articles was in America;  but soon,  the foreign  manufacturers,  keeping pace  with the lowered selling prices of aluminum  in America, became very  much  interested  in the use of  the  metal.    However,  with  the middle of the year i.890 and the nrab  of the year 1891, may  be fairly  attributed  the statt of the'staple uses of aluminum iu  the arts.    By the middle of the year 1891  .and the first of the year 1892, the German  .gorv^Fhmeirt"bTca'me~i"0t^fest~3ti~"m  of aluminum for military equipments,  and  the large   continental ..steel works'began  to adopt the systematic  uae of  alumiuum  for increasing the soundness ot their steel  when cast into ingots or castings.   It may  be fairly admitted that within the past two  years the'*Germans-have outstripped  the  Americans in the adoption and use of alumiuum for-staple, articles.    They have, as  well,  commenced to. manufacture almost  countless articles of fancy goods of aluminum.   The'American public was first apprised of this in a large way at the time of  the World's Fair, when   there  was a considerable exhibit- of German   articles   of  alumiuum.   In this country, the progress  of the more staple uses of the metal has  been slower than in Europe,  but progress  is now being made in this directum quite  .rapidly." ,Mo^t of the large steel works of  the country have adopted the  regular use  of aluminum iu-the manufacture of steel,  andcompanies making  steel  castings are  almost universally using it in  considerable  amounts iu  their manufacture of    these  castings.  *.     The Army and Navy Departments of the  Government of. the United States have not  been as rapid in their adoption of  the use  of aluminum for military and naval equipments as abroad, and yet considerable progress has already been made, and more  rapid progress cau be looked forward to iu  the   near   future.   Already    considerable  orders have been received from the various  - Government departments by the. aluminum manufacturers; and with .the recent  advent upon the market . of hardened  "nickel-aluminum" alloys (which show a  tensile strength in casting of 25,000. to 30,-  000 pounds per square inch, and in rolled  bars and plates of 45,000 to 50.000. pounds  per square inch), many added uses for the  metal are beiug adopted.  The next two years will   undoubtedly  show a more rapid development of   the  .more staple uses of aluminum in the arts  - in the "United States than the whole progress so far made.���������Mr. Alfred E.

DAVYS, Sole Agent,  Among all the mining machines and appliances shown at the World's Columbian  Exposition there was nothing which excited more interest and favorable comment than  the Tbematne Steam Stamp Mill in the Minine Building. It 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  lparn that such a machine had been in successful operation forioyer two years in the  extreme north-western part oi the United States.

It is one of the evil3 of. this part '  of the country  that little  or no interest  whatever is   taken  in  Canadian   politics,  Unconsciously   the    electors   of    British  ���������Columbia paraphrase an   old saw,  "what  affects not the pocket the  heart does nut  feel."   They know.that there is'a parliament sitting in Ottawa,  2,000 miles away,  end they know the names probably  of tho  Prime Minister   and   of  the member for.  Iheirowu  district.    But nothing doue in |  that far distant parliament seems to  affect j  the dwellers in these remote regions.    Ex-'  rapt llie post office and the customs there  ii no outward and visible sign  of the  Do-  niuion  power.    Everything personal  and  bcal is  the work of our own  provincial  hgislature   and  we can  get hot enough  cer its doings about election time.   But  after all the constitution of the Dominion  jarliameut is a question that really does  affect every one of us personally, and ought  to be most seriously considered by every  cne who  is proud  of" being a Canadiau.  The  parliament   a'c   Ottawa   guides, our  national footsteps along the  pathway of  nations aud ou ' its acts   and   deeds   tho  great Dominion of Canada relies for prestige abroad and welfare at home.  The Canadian Parliament is supposed to  be worked ou lines of "Government by-  party." This system was all very -well in  ���������the-okl country-as-long-as-the -lines- of  division.between the two gre������t parties of  Conservatives aud Liberals were clearly  drawn. Of late years these lines have become something like the colours of a  rainbow, though absolutely distinct in  themselves,, apt to become blurred and  mixed at the points of contact.   Iu Caua-  A   RIVAL.  - The enormous .and increasing wealth  of   Coolgardie   is   already   011t.rivalli.11g  that of any of the great gold producing  fields of the past.    If the story  of  rich  finds continues week by week, the West  Australian   country   will    outdo    the  rosiest dreams of persons suffering from  the delirium of gold fever.   It almost  takes ones.breath  away to read in the  sober,  quiet, undemonstrative columns  of the leading London journal  of there  being  "tons" of  gold in  sight at   one  mine.    Had the statement appeared in  a   Western   American   paper it  would  have   attracted   no  notice  at   all,    because it has become so much the fashion  in the  west   to   use extravagant    Ian.  guage and large type for comparatively  trivial events that there are  no  more  adjectives and no larger type to be used  for really important statements.  statement- of this kind  appearing in the  London Times at once commands atten-  lion.     The   article   to which   we have  referred and which we reprint in another  column, slates  that the completion of  the railway which is under, construction  from Perth Lo the gold fields will enable  the serious development of the mines to  he commenced.    It  \vill=>alsb  have the  effect of carrying thousands of  men to  the spot.     Unless  the   history   of   discover!. :h absolutely  ceases, which is not  to he anticipated, there cannot  but be a  the second of these two causes is only  the first over again. Our fellow British  Columbians on the coast are doubly  handicapped with the teirible rates.  Canada for- the Canadians is a very good  cry, but we somehow do not care for the  intetpretation which the C. P. R. and  other monopolists would like it to bear,  viz.: "Canada, all of it, for a very few  Eastern Canadians." We do not quite  see where British Columbia comes in on  the deal.

In Victoria the same whispers meet i  viduals is at-last becoming clear to communities that it would benefit Britishers  generally throughout the world if there  was an Imperial Customs "Union.   That is  if trade betweeu one part of the empire and  another was absolutely unrestricted.   The  Statist, an influential London paper, lias  offiered a prize of one.thousand guineas for  a paper on the best scheme of inaugurating  such an Union, and the results of the competition will be interesting reading.   Commenting on the above the London Times  aYers that no Imperial Customs Union is  possible that is not based on Free Trade  and further urges that it would be incomplete and ineffective if it did not include  the United States.

CL THE MINER, NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20 1894.  THE WAR  IN THE  EAST.  London, Oct. 7.���������It can ' be stated on  authority' that the development's of the  past week in eastern affairs will lead to  concerted action on the part of European  powers. On Monday last Mr.' H. M.  O'Connor, the British minister at Pekin,  warned the foreign ollice by'cable that the  condition of affairs in China was' such that  the government was not able to guarantee  protection to the residents at the treaty  ports and the missionaries in the interior  of the country. The minister in the same  dispatch stated that the Chiuese imperial  council was disorganized aud that the col  lapse of the go'veriimeut was not looked  upon as an impossibility, and advised that  instant action be taken for the protection  of the lives and property of British subjects  in China. The substance of this dispatch  was at once communicated by Lord Rosebery to the goternments of France, Russia  and Germany, with the suggestion 'thai  the powers co-operate in increasing the  guar*d at the treaty ports and iu measures  for the protection of the missionaries.  Berlin Oct. 7.���������Under the approval of the  Emperor, Chancellor Von Caprivi has telegraphed to Lord Kimberley, British foreign  minister, informing him that .the German  squadron will co-operate with the English  fleet to protect Europeans at Chinese ports,  and requesting a mutual entente on the  part of England whereby ' the British  Bquadron . shall protect German subjects  and the German fleet protect' British s'uh-  . jects.  New York, Oct. 7.���������A special cable dispatch from Shanghai to the Herald says:  Telegram's from Moukden report that  thousands of Chinese soldiers are passing  through that city on a wild retreat. The  Japanese army is believed to have arrived  there now, aided by 10,000 armed 'Cowans.  The'' Empress" Dowager is' exercising supreme power "iu Pekin.  London, Oct. 7.���������Japanese transports  have landed a large force at Ta Lien Wen,,  on the Chiuese coast, northeast of Port  Arthur.  The Central News correspondent in Wi  Ju gives further details of the battle reported earlier iu the day from Tokio. He  Bays that the Japanese force had been  greatly delayed m its advance by the badness of the roads. The heavy guns could  be brought forward but slowly, aud the  troops were compelled often" to wait for  supplies. Pioneer troops had to be used  repeatedly to make the roads passable.  The main Japanese column reached Yuug  Chen, a short distauce to the south of Wi  Ju on Oct. 4. There was no sign of the  enemy. Four days later the scouts who  had been sent out toward "Wi Ju reported  that a small Chinese force still occupied the  city. The strength of the enemy was estimated at about 2,000. A strong body of  infantry and cavalry? supported by light  artillery, was thrown forward at once.  The Chinese offered little-resistance. They  retired before the first attacking party and  eventually broke and fled across the Yalu.  The Chinese loss was hardly more than a  hundred killed and wounded. ' The Japanese line of communications is now complete  throughout Corea. ' The Japanese expect,  further reinforcements to come to Wi Ju  by water. A JapaneseofBcer has been appointed governing commissary of Wi Ju.  The field telegraph has-been in working  -order-since -last- evening, -ahd .ia-regular  cdrrri'er 'service between Wi Ju ahd the rear  of the column began to:day.      J  The reinforcements of Murines for the  British-Squadron ifi ���������Chinese., waters will  proceed by way of the C; P.*'It  '" A dispatch to the Pall Mall Gazette from  Yokohama says that the Japanese, govern-,  ment lias decided'to raise "an international  war loan of ten million pourids.'which, together with the new taxation for war purposes, will bring the refources'of. the government, up to tweDty-six million pounds.  The minority in the cabinet- favored' a foreign loau, owing to the recency of the' last  international loan. y  Hongkong, Oct. 17.���������A dispatch from  Foochoo says that the river has been closed  for shipping. Foochoo is. one of the treaty  ports of Cliiria, is the capital of ihe provincp.  ofFokien.and is situated about twenty-  five'miles from the mouth of the Miri river  Foochoo has a naval arsenal, shipyard!  and school of navigation. Near it are ex-:  tensive lead mines, and tbe black tea district is within seventy miles of that piaoe.  Consequently Foochoo. carries ou a large  trade with the' maritime provinces of China,  both by land and water, as, well .as with the  Looehoo islands and Japati. Its p'opula'tibn  is estimated .at, 500,000. -  - The Japanese troops are wholly unprepared for tbe rigorous winter of Peking,  which is due within two weeks, the climate  of Japan being very mild, even in winter.  The Chinese look upon this as one of their  defences; and the Japanese" know, that" it  compels! them to coiicentrate their'" campaign for this year into the next few weeks  aod, if possible, into a. few days. For that  reason they are preparing/to" make heroic  efforts'to decide the c'onteit at once. They  are without the heavy clothiog, camp  equipage, etc., necessary for a campaign in  the bitter cold.  A. dispatch to tbe Times from Yokohama repeats the report of the capture of  Chefoo ������nd-adds that the" Japanese have  l������nded'troops at Tarascada, near Port  Arthur The correspondent at Hongkong  telegraphs under date of .to-day..that, the  Chinese'n������ve closed Foocnoo* in ptepar-  ation for a siege. A panic prevails at  Pekin.  Shanghai, Oct.. 16.���������It .is treported that  Port Arthur, the  Chinese   strong* hold,  New York, Oct. 13th.���������A special from  Washiugtn'n City says: The United  States has been invited by a quadruple  alliance,'composed of Great "Britain,  France, Germany and Russia, to join it  in a'friendly intervention in the war  between China and Japan. The invitation will be declined. The declination  is based on the time-honored policy of  this government to avoid any entangling alliance with foreign powers. Acknowledgment is made of the truth of  what the invitation has to say about  the desirability of the restoration of-  peace, etc., but in the polite language of  diplomacy it is pointed out that this  country has so far got along very well  by attending to its own business, and  that so long as it coiicinues to prosper-  by that policy it will not depart from it.  PHOTO TOPOGRAPHY.  Mr. Ogilvie ol the Alaska Boundary Survey communicates the following interesting  items to the Colonist.  The method adopted to carry out ihis  survey work���������photo-topography���������has lately excited much public interest. The system pursued can hardly be uuderstoi d by  the majority of newspaper readers in the  absence ot the mathematical training  necessary i'or its comprehension, but the  following facts in connection with it, stated by Mr. Ogilvie, will not bo uninteresting. "The idea,"' said he, "is older thau  photography itself, for thc attempt was  one time made to make a chart from  sketches of couutry made iu the dark  camera, l'liolo-topographic surveys of a  kind were made iu France, Germany and  Italy a great many years ago, anil in the  United States at least oue text book was  written ou the subject; but itsdeve.opmeut  to its present state of perfection as adopted  by this commission is due to the surveyor-  general of the Dominion, Mr. E. Deville,  who took up the subject some years .ago  with the intention of devising some cheap,  quick and accurate meaus of survey of the  mountain lands belonging to the Dominion  in the British Columbia railway belt, He  soon saw thai, the cumbrous and costly  instruments used iu this class of operations  in Europe were unfitted lor the work to be  done in Canada, and thought out aud devised the instruments no������v used by this  commission. Iu doing this he was ably  seconded by Mr. J.J. McArthur and Mr.  W.. E. Drewry (who is now engaged in  carrying out a survey of this nature ior���������the  British Columbia government), who during  the years between 1881 aud 1893 acted  under his instructions and tested his ideas  aud devices iii actual work along the line  of the railway in the Hookies aud" westward. As they succeeded or failed iu this  or that direction, methuds and instruments  were changed aud improve'-!, mi iii at present there is very little room for "further  progress. The method was, thus proved a  success in the railway belt before it was  determined to adopt it iu the boundary  survey, lu fact it was. a success before  the boundary survey was thought of. To  sum up the method in one phrase, it is a  graphic solution of the sides of a triangle:  Almost everyone knows that given a line of  any finite length and the direction of any  given point from each of its ends that point  can be located. Now, suppose a line aud  any point or any number of points which  are desired to be located with reference to  its ends. Then suppose photograph's taken  -from-each-eudof-tUisJine,-each_of^-which  shows all thoae points iu its field. It is  easy to see that after the observer has  oriented those views���������that is; located the  direction of the centre o. the.picture from  the point of sight, aud knowing the focal  length of the lens used in the camera, he  can lay off or project on the picture plane  the direction of any point or points in each  picture. Lines drawn iu those directions  from the ends of tlie. base, will intersect  each other in the locus of any desired point,  so long-, as it can be distinguished in the  view. Its'elevation with reference to the  station occupied is determined on the  same principle that elevations are found  with the ti ansit or theodolite���������that is from  angles of depression or elevation.  of a "one mine field" in which the newcomer' had little to expect. The discoveries at Londonderry did something  to niodifv this view. Thc new finds are  likely to "break it down altogether. The  statement, of the government geologist,  with regard to the field in the ���������'Mining  Handbook" published for this year- is to  the effect that there are several well  formed reefs showing gold about live  miles to tlie south and other patches for  00 miles to the north and northeastward  of the reef known as Bayley's claim. It  was thought probable that at about this  time of the year when cooler weather  makes prospecting less laborious new  discoveries might, be made. The event  appears to be outstripping sober hopes,  nnd, while sudden developments are unfortunately too likely to encourage  irrational "speculation, which will ruin  manv individuals, the government is to  be congratulated on the fact that a field  whii'irwas discovered in 1802 should already have established its position as  one of Ihe rich gold-bearing centres of  the continent. The survey for tbe railway which is to connect Coolgardie  with Perth is, we understand, already  finished. When the railway has been  made the serious development of mines  upon the field maybe expected to begin.  ���������NOTICE TO SHAREHOLDERS.  rpi-1]"* First Annual Meeting of the Share-  JL holders in the Nelson .Hydraulic Mining Co.,  Limited, will he held it the Company's oflice, on  West Raker street, Nokoh, British Columbia, on  Monday thcoth day of >"ovcrnber, 1S!M, at llo'clock  in the forenoon.

The London Times is. authority for  the statement ihat Lord Fingall lias  purchased the Londonderry mine, Coolgardie. Western Australia, paying,  nearly ������250,000 (about a million and a  quarter doljars.) The report proceeds  to say that an enormous quantity, of  gold, estimated. at several tons, is in  sight. The Agent-General, of Western  Australia in London writes to the same  journal that The Wealth of Nations  mine seems likely to eclipse the marvellous finds at Bayley's Reward and The  Londonderry, in the same field. " And.  further The Times itself writes in its  Colonial column as follows :  The great mineral wealth of Western  Australia is no doubt the attraction  which accounts for. her already rapidly  rising population,' and.fpr the fact that  the proportion of men to women in the  colony is at present almost exactly two  to one. But the hardships which have  to be faced in seeking.for gold in the  interior are such as can be endured only  by the.strongest and inost adventurous.,  members- of 'the. cpiumunity, arid * the*,  difficulties created by! scarcity of vvatei'-"  and-ihe' lack of any.but.cain'el transport  are so great, that, of late the ruining  population had ceased.to ,shqw a*"very*  m'ark'ed i'ncr'ea'se."
