Davenport for $2,500.  The camp generally looks bright and  active and the,, town already has three  hotels and three stores and about twenty  other buildings.     The business of the  townsite is in the hands of Mr.  W. M.  Newton.   The location of the town on  the high benches at the head ot Trail  and Sheep Creeks, with the  best  mines  almost adjoining the townsite, affords a  most  convenient   and   accessible   site,  with a good down   grade from all the  mines.     The   camp  is   extremely  well  supplied with roads and the new road  to Northport gives a good  outlet to the  south.    It is a question whether the ore  will go out over this  latter road  or  by  the usual  route from Trail  landing on  the Columbia; some competition  may  be   expected. as thc  exploiters   of   the  Northport. route   are    Messrs.   Corbin,  Roberts & Co.. the owners of the  town-  site there.     Teamsters   think  it  could  only be available for the two extreme  winter months of the year,   when  snow  prevails over its entire length.    In other  winter months the absence of snow on  the lower part of the road would  necessitate a transfer, while iri summer it is  much too long a haul over a dirt road.  Mr. Johnston, the Collector of Customs, was in here this week as to the  collection of duties on this Northport  route, lt was difficult to convince him  that this road was designed to be of  much advantage to the Trail Creek  mines, though the Northport people  might use it for the conveyance of merchandise in. It is understood he will  make arrangements for having the  customs authorities represented at Rossland.  NEW  LOCATIONS.  KAS-.6.  Nov. 2.���������Crown Point,���������Neil McDonald.

This latter is of usual size,  however, and will be able to handle nearly  three-quarters of'the amount of ores formerly treated by the two stacks.

Mullau, Idaho.���������The Morning mine has  about 85 men at work on the co-operative  plan, and more are coming in' steadily.  Soon there will be a full force at work,  though not aa many men are required as  formerly. Tlie new plan works nicely, the  men showing no signs of discontent.  The mill is working two shifts aud will  continue to do so until it overtakes the  mine.  Even at present prices of lead the men  are hopeful of making good wages. However, the first month's operation will not  be a fair test, as the force has been small  and the new men coming in have been at  work only a part of the month. The outcome of October's operations will soon be  known.  leaving a net profit of $85, and there i  about $40 of unsold goods on hand.

(From our own correspondent.)  will  be seen  by* a  glance at  the  column that  ROSSLAND, TRAIl. CREEK.  (From  our own  correspondent.)  The War Eagle is now working about  20 men, sinking two shafts and running  a tunnel.   They will begin shipping ore  on -1th November'.    They are working in  ore yielding $60 in gold and 12* per cent,  copper.    Steam power will  be  obtained  from   the   Le Roi   mine and Burleigh  drills put in next week.    The new  shaft  will join  the tunnel  and will  be completed in.about a week  when   the  bond  on the property will  be taken  up.    On  the   north   side   the   ledge   is  opening  grandly and is now G ft. 10 in. wide,   the  ore chute is 900 feet long by 9 feet t,broad  and all in sight is ore.    Once sloping is  started 100 tons a day can be  taken  out  as easily as one ton,  and  when  opened  out. another 200 feet she will put out 250  tons   a    day.     This      property    gives  every . piomise   of   becoming   a   mine  sooner than any other in camp.    Everything is being done<in a miner like manner lo develop the property to the best  and fullest advantage.    Mr.  Kingsbury,   part.owner-of-this-property-and-also-of-  .   the Poorinan mine in the Cour d' Alene,  ,    states that he prefers this camp to any  other in this province.  ., A personal visit, to the O. K. shows  , "the work to be in active progress. The  tunnel is in 300 feet and the quartz vein  matter cuts it in several places and  shows up well at the end of the tunnel.  A five stamp mill" is in full swing and  gives concentrates worth $500 per ton.  The tailings also will be rehandled as  considerable gold passes out with them.  A jigging machine with copper table has  just been put in and will start work next  week. Mr. J. Y. Cole ahd Mr. Oudin  t- are both on the spot and Mr-. Litchfield  is helping tti'eni..  In the I.X.L., adjoining tho O. K.,  stoping is   going   on   in  two or three  "places and ore of the same qualiiy as the  O.'K. is being got out, but no plant has  yet been put in." The recent survey of  these claims by Mr. F. Ritchie throws  the line of the I.X.L. over on to the O.  K��������� covering their tunnel for some 40  - feet; the two mines are therefore using  the same tunnel and the I.X.L. is taking  out ore which was thought, to. have been  located by the O. K. people.  At the Le Roi a large boarding house  and hotel are approaching completion.  They are still sinking on the shaft below  the 300 foot level and the ore comes up  richer than ever. Burleigh drills will be  put in at once and they will ship some  30 tons a day.as they have a clear face of  300 to 100 feet of ore to work on and will  probably put out between 3,000 and 4,000  tons this winter. It is understood that  all this shipment -will be made from  Trail landing. . '  On the Cliff John R.. Cook1 is steadily  at work. The mine is opening up very  good and they now have four feet of  solid ore, with 65 tons on dump which  will be shipped when the snow comes.  This ore gives $30 gold and four per cent,  copper.  On the Kootenay Phil. Aspinwall and  Jack Thompson will start a tunnel this  week.   This is a fineproposition, show-  * .ng1 $65 in gold and five per cent, copper.  location records in another  Kaslo River is again the subject of much  expectation. Four of the Chinamen  who flocked there nearly two months  ago, kept steadily at work with the  result that, at or near- bed rock, they  have discovered some very rich gold  dirt. A sample'of one pan was shown  here and there was over one dollars  worth of gold in it. The Chinamen's  labors have been closely watched by  interested citizens and the results they  have obtained have led several parties  to locate claims. Opinion is very much  divided as to the richness of the ground,  but "facts are chiels that winna ding,"  and there is the gold to be seen. Three  claims were staked on Monday and two  on Tuesday. Old timers shake their  heads at the news and say it wont pay,  that the river has been worked before  and indications of that fact are still to'  be seen. It also remains to be seen if  they are right or wrong. Anyway the  Chinamen are making money. *  A much needed improvement has been  completed in the building of a side walk  to the steamer Spokane from Front St.  The wagon road is said to be in very  bad shape in some places.

A most unusual occurence took place  on the steamboat Saturday night on  her way to Kaslo. Nothing less than a  marriage.  News reached here Monday that E. E.  Coy had been severely hurt by a portion  of rock in the tunnel on the Pauper's  Dream falling upon hi mi' The tunnel is  in about 215 feet and work has been kept  up continuously on itsince summer. The  injuries as first reported were alarming,  but have since moderated. _  At last city council meeting T. J.  Roadley, city clerk, tendered his resignation and Mr. Maxwell was appointed.

PROVINCIAL  NEWS.  The Premier left Ottawa-for Victoria  last week. During his visit the chief subject of conversation between himself and  the Dominion authorities was the dyking  of the Eraser River. A gigantic scheme  is projected which will cost several millions  of dollars and engineers are to examine  and report on it ou behalf both of the  Provincial and Dominion governments.  The dead body.of C. A. Benson, bearing  evident marks of violence was found floating in an open boat between Read Isiaud  and Camp Island. The deceased in partner-ship with E. W. Wylie had beeu keeping a store on. Read Island. A coroners  jury at Vancouver found a verdict of murder against some person or persons unknown and urged for increased- police  protection along the north coast.  The Victoria Lacrosse Club has withdrawn from the British Columbia League  in consequence of the decision of the  Referee upheld by the executive upon tbe  result of the final game played recently in  Vancouver. The match was between  Victoria and New Westminister. Its commencement was delayed an hour in consequence of the absence of one of the Westminster men, and it could not be played to  a finish on account of . darkness. The  referee declared it a draw. To this Victoria  objects. Before commencing the match  however Victoria entered a protest agaiust  the delay, which the referee would not  uphold. There he was wrong and Victoria  should have left the field. They however  by remaining accepted the referee's ruling  and now it would seem they have put  themslves entirely in a false position. Alas,  poor lacrosse, a noble game fallen on bad  times.  Thirty-one third-class clerks' and carrier's of the Victoria postoflice struck last  The ladies of the Methodist  nounce a parlor social to be  NEWS OF THE WORLD.  An attempt has been made in London  to blow up the house of Sir Henry Hawkins, the judge who recently sentenced  four Welsh anarchists.  The Lexow committee that is sitting  in New York enquiring into the civic  abuses that have grown up under the  rule of Tammany are extracting evidence  of the vilest corruption among the  police. These gentry existed on the  blackmail they extorted for every breach  of the city laws, from keeping a brothel  to leaving a case, of goods on the side  walk.  ��������� Adolph Sutro says he is going to erect  a $1,000,000 hotel on his property at the  Cliff House, San Francisco. He intends  to make itan ideal summer resort, and  will co in men ce operations when his new  electric road to the beach is completed.  The site selected for thc hotel is on the  high bluff north of the new baths, and  it commands a view of the Golden Gate  and the coast line for miles.  The Clan-na-Gael has been revived in  Chicago. And this time there is no  doubt about it. They openly discard all  the Irish parties in the old country and  their quasi constitutional methods and  declare their intention of setting  Ireland at liberty by crippling British  commerce abroad. If these gentle reformers have their way we may look for  bombs dropped into mines, dynamite  tossed into the bunkers of passenger  steamers, trains hurled down the precipices of the Rockies and the water  poisoned in dry Australia. When their  work of terror is complete and they have  terrorized the British Government into  conceding their demands, they will rule  Ireland as Tammany rules New York.  It is not surprising therefore that the  programme is distasteful to and very  energetically opposed by all sensible  people.  A correspondent, in whom entire confidence may be placed, writes us: I have  jnst returned from' Midway in the Lower  Okanagan, where I went through a few  ot the mines. ��������� There cannot be a doubt  about that district being a rich gold  country... Camp McKinney is sending  out- gold bricks regularly and Fairview  is looking better than it ever did.  The first annual meeting of the Nelson  Hydraulic Mining Co. was held in the  company's office on Monday last. The  directors presented a report of the progress of the companj', which has been  so frequently noted in our columns that  there is-no necessity to repeat it. Mr.  John Elliot was elected a director in the  place of Mr. J. F. Hume, resigned, and  the other members of the board were all  re-elected. Some important alterations  of the by-laws were discussed and left  to the board to carry out.  The celebration of Hallowe'en is not unattended Avitli danger.

The "quiet village," as some of our  neighbors call us, can be -smart enough  when occasion demands. Only last  week Messrs. Traves and Farley decided  to launch out into the butcher business,  No sooner thought of than done. Ground  was at once prepared on a vacant lot-  next to the post office on Baker street  and on Monday next the West Kootenay  Butcher Co. will be prepared to" meet the  demands o_ its customers. If the new  firm is going to continue this kind, of  energy the public may congratulate  thems'elves on the establishment of the  new business.  Our suggestion last week anent the  formation of a curling.club in Nelson has  brought us a letter from Mr'. G. O. Buchanan warmly supporting the idea. He  says that if a club was started here iu  Nelson one would also probably start iu  Kaslo and many fierce and friendly games  might be the result.

It is said that Malachi^ Coughlin,  of  the  village of Arthur near Guelph, is  claiming a, "four million  fortune in the  old country.   There are not many "four  million" fortunes knocking about and it  is possible that this par. may have been  hatched up out pf the fact that Mr. Hugh i  McCalrnont,   owner   of the race horse j  Isinglass, came into a fortune of ������4,000,- i  000 the other day.     >���������' |  Captain Linden, of Canso, and several:  | of the crew   of   the   schooner Jumbo,!  | which  was   wrecked June, ' 1893,   on  a  ! voyage from  Canso   to   Halifax,   have  ! been   arrested,   charged   with   wilfully  j casting away the vessel' to  defraud the  able to stop.coming events.

THE WAR; IN THE  EAST*.
Yokohama,'Nov. 2.���Tlie Japanese have
captured lJortAi'thurj-\y.ue_G--China's  only
great  arsenal  was  located  and  the   only
'fpl.ce where'tlie largest men of. war' could
, .be docked. It was strongly fortified under
the supervision of Col. Van l-Iamieken .and
"was*-considered   almost   impregnable   'by
, land or by sea, although it was said the
land defences had beeu neglected. - For
weeks past tli.c Japanese had been making
their way towards the fort; being greatly
assisted by very careful surveys made by
a, Japanese expedition two years ago. 'The
capture of Port Arthur is a tremendous
blow to China, the seriousness of which
cannot be over estimated. China has
practically only two harbors of-'refuge in
the north, Port Arthur and Weihaiwei.
At the former only had she a dock accommodating the largest men-of-war, for
"Weiuiuwei is simply a harbour, and the
only other dock is the small one at Taku.
^Vith Port Arthur in their possession l tbe
.Japanese have a magnificent -base for'haval
.operations, aud Weihaiwei, on the'opposite
promentary, being only five hours' steaming off,, will be seriously threatened, whilst
the chances of landing troops jit Sbanhai-
kuan will be greatly increased. In every
way, therefore, the safety of Port Arthur
;was of'vital importance to China. It is
stated that Port Arthur has been thoroughly invested by the Japanese, who are no.w
moving with all speed on Muukden. One
force of Japanese, it is further stated, will
���attack'Kinchow Asoy, while another will
attack j Fung Whang. Both places are
h!ield';:by strong forces of Chinese. The
-"apatiese are confident of victory.
' Shanghai, Nov. 2���It is announced in
the native pa, era that the Chinese troops
have le'caplured Cienlien Chang after
desperate fighting. The Japanese are said
to*l_ave been driven out of the place with
a loss of 3,00') killed aud wounded. ' Upon
good authi'i'iiy it is reported- that- 'the
Japanese aie leaving Port Arthur and its
vicinity.
"' Tientsin, Nov. 1.���The Japanese have
placed three bridges across the Yalu river,
and 15,000 Japanese soldiers are reported
"to be in China.
.CheeFoo, Nov. 2.���Admiral Fremautle,
conimonding the British fleet, has returned
.from Tientsin, where he paid a visit to Li
Hung Chang. The, Viceroy1 gravely offered' to buy the Centurion and three other
war strips of the British squadron. AVhen
'theadmifal explained that the sale of theves-
sels would be impossible, the Viceroyper-
sisted in his offer. The Chinese imagine that
"Admiral Freniantle is holding off for a
higher price.
New Yokk, Nov. 9.���A special to the

THE NEW CZAR.
Nicholas II., Emperor of the Russias,
was ;born.May ,6, 1868!. He is short in stature, insignificant in appearance and dull
in intellect. As a child he developed so
slowly and showed so few mental gifts
that it was feared he would be. an idiot.
He has the physique of his mother, is very
sallow, and has extraordinarily expressionless bluish-gray eyes, the bushy black eyebrows'over which do not improve his appearance. He has lately grown. a beard,
which, has given "him a more mnnly aspect,
and made him look like tbe cousin he is of
the Duke of York, but it is an ugly likeness. There is the square Tartar head and
the curious Tartar snub-nose, which pronounces him a* Russian. He so closely
resembles the Duke of York that during
his visit to Queen Victoria during the past
summer, had he not worn the striking
Russian uniform in all public functions,
he would often have been mistaken for his
cousin..
The Czarewitch was brought up on a system of austerity frequently, bordering ou
rigorous severity. He-had been placed by
the Czar under the absolute control of the
former.tutor of Alexander III.,'the pro-
cureur general of the holy synod,. M.
Pobedono'stzeff, who wielded his power
with no gentle pi' .lenient hand so far as
application"' to lessons and subservience
todiscipline were concerned. He had reached his twentieth year before any of" the
rules were relaxed; and at" that age his
private apartment still presented the appearance of! an ordinary school. The large
- room was filled with books on all subjects
and in every language: it was scaiitiiy furnished, ,the most conspicuous ornament
being a huge blackboard, habitually covered with algebraic problems or geometrical
figures.- The whole morning was spent
in mastering exact sciences, while the
afternoons "were devoted to the study of
philosophy, history and social economy.
In 1889 Nicholas took his first official
journey. In his capacity as heir to the
throne he visited his grandfather at Copenhagen and afterward went to Berlin and
Stuttgart,- where he was received with the
honors and etiquette' commanded by his
rank. Iii the autumn of 1890 he started
far a long journey, which was extended

THE LATEST   PRACTICAL   MINING
MACHINE  NOW PERFECTED	
(Highest Award sit World's Fair Chicago.)
The machine consists of a Two Stamp Prospectiug Mill, and is capable of nutting
through Six Tons per diem. The entire plant consists of. Boiler. Steam Pump and
Copper Table's. Weight,'2,800 pounds. Itis built in sections which can be taken
apart and easily transported by pack anirhals. These Mills can be erected and placed
in running order at from $2,000 to $2,500, according to locality.   Full'particulars from
M. S. DAVYS, Sole Agent,
3sr___i_so_tsr,  b. c
Among all the mining machines and appliances shown at the ."World's Columbian
Exposition there was nothing which excited more interest ahd favorable comment than
the Tbemaine Steam .Stamp Mill in the Mining 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
learn that such a'machine had been in successful operation for over two years in the
extreme north-western part oi the United States. " (9)
over a period of seven months. From
Vienna he dropped south into Greece,
thence to Egypt and Qn to India, where
he was the guest of the British Viceroy,
then to Japan and returned home by way
of Afghanistan, hunting the tiger and the
lion in the far East. His younger brother,
George, who was his companion the whole
time, had to part from him and return to
Russia, owing to ill-health; and his permanent delicacy of constitution from that
time had been a serious cause of anxiety
to both his parents, who adore him..
The trip was made memorable by the
attempt of a policeman in Tokyo, Japan,
to kill the Czarewitch, whom he did not
know. Late at night Prince George and
the Czarewitch went to" a house of amuse-
m'eot reserved, for priests only and tried to
force an entrance. The policeman atthe door
resisted and struck the Czarewitch with his
sword. A moment later Prince George of
Greece laid the policeman low. Then the
princes hurried away..
ThenewCzar is so insignificant in appearance that the Russians, who, from the time
of Peter the Great, haye been ruled by men
ofjjigantic.stature and prodigious siiength,
do'not look upon the puny Nicholas as a
real Russian, and the liberal movement
will gain streugth on this account.' The
name "Nicholas," recalling his detested
great grandfather, adds nothing to his
popularity. He is also said to be too friendly with Germany.
Princess Alix of s Hesse, who is to .be
Czarina, is a handsome woman, although
the granddaughter of Queen Victoria. She
is 23 years old, and the youngest sister , of
Grand Duke Earnest Ludwig of Hesse.
. The Czar has a wife already. Two
months ago he was married to Maritza
Kseziusha, an actress a Polish Jew and a
beautiful woman, at Kalisch, Russian
Poland. His unwillingness to marry Princess Alix was due to the fact that ho didu't
want another wife. "' His father, however1*
compelled him "to wed the Hessian woman.
He will probably live with the Polish actress as former Czars have lived, with the
wives of their own selection. When two
or three years ago the commander of the
royal body . guard in Potsdam, Germany,
was constrained to send one of his younger
officers, who happened to be the Kaiser's
cousin, Prince l_eopold of "Prussia, behind
the front of the regiment for stupidity and
insubordination, Czar Alexander wrote to
his father-in-law, the King of Denmark,
with bitterJ sarcasm: "Poor William, it
makes'him unhappy to have one relative
unendowed with strategic qualities. He
oughtto be in my shoes, with thieves, malcontents, reds-and husbands of lewd
women in the family circle."

A week or two ago we published a'  letter- from Col. Peyton saying that he  had.cb.osen to purchase certain goods in  Winnipeg.rather than iii our own cities  for two reasons, the first of which was  "the discrimination iri freight rates."  From this wc supposed that rates from  the coast were higher than from Winnipeg. We made certain remarks in our  leading columns accordingly. Since  then Mn. Anderson, the freight agent  here of the (J. P. 11., has brought under  our notice the rates themselves. Of  these there are ten classes for different  kinds of goods. It will be sufficient if  we take the first, the fifth and the tenth  as examples. The others fall into the  same ratio. The rates to Trail Creek,  the objective point in Col. Peyton's  transaction, are as follows:  Class 1.   Class 5. Class 10.  From Winnipeg,       1.95      1.18      90  From Vancouver,      1.93      1.12      78  The figures are ��������� the freight rates per  hundred pounds and, contrary to the  general idea, give a discrimination in  every case in -favour of Vancouver, not  against it. The freights from Victoria.  are ten cents higher than from Vancouver, which in classes one and five  would give Winnipeg a little the best of  it,'but in the others Victoria would still  be the cheapest point of shipment. It  therefore follows that as far as freights  are concerned the coast is in a position  to run Winnipeg out of the market.  The other reason which decided Col.  Peyton to go east for his supplies was  that the goods he,required were more  expensive at the coast than at Winnipeg.  ~Now~as regards^TrdsThal^^  in  ..Canada it is obvious that this must be the  case, on account of the enormous double  railway journey they have to. make.  But of all the objects used in this district Victoria and Vancouver ought to  be aJble to supply nearly everything more  cheaply than any other part of tho  Dominion, except such things as canned  vegetables, bacon and hams, cheese aud  preserved milk." The rjorts of Victoria  and Vancouver are open to the world.  From Great Britain tliey receive, by  v/ay of the Horn, hardware, crockery,  glass, woollens of every grade and other  soft goods, to say nothing of trifles such  as pickles and sauces. From China and  Japan they receive tea, sugar and rice,  from Australia they can get canned  meats, and from New Zealand fine  woollens and the best blankets in the  world. This is only a cursory list of  articles, man}'- others will doubtless  occur to our readers. The merchants of  British Columbia have all the world  open to them and they can go forth and  buy" what they, want in the cheapest  market they can find.  There is therefore no reason whatever  why our own merchants should neglect, as they do, the trade of this district.  And if they turn up their hoses at it  now that it is comparatively small, tney  must not be surprised to find, by and by  when it is greater, that it has drifted  away and become fixed in other channels  from which it cannot be diverted.  There is of course a most obvious Free  Trade moral in the above which, however, is apart from the motive of this  article.  UNEASY RESTS   THE  HEAD.  As we anticipated last week the Czar  of Russia died while  we were in the  press.   He succeeded his father, Alexander II, in 1881, and has consequently  reigned for nearly   14  years.     During  that-time in all the delicate intrigues  that have taken place between England  ahd Russia the Czar has "maintained the  dignity of his empire without going to  war.   The Nihilistic faction  has never  ceased to vilify him to the utmost as the  accursed oppressor of his people and has  sought every means to destroy him as  they did his father.  To our British ideas  of freedom the Russian system of autocratic government by the Emperor himself seems, antiquated and contrary to  the best interests of the inhabitants of  that country.   On the other hand it is  hot easily to be seen what can  take its  place.   The_great masses of the people  of Russia were only a few   years ago  released from   serfdom   and ��������� they are  today an ignorant peasantry, perfectly  incapable of ruling themselves, even if  a constitution was granted them.   More  civilized   and    more   highly   educated  "people, nearer1 home, sometimes make a  very foolish use of their liberty in their  attempts to govern themselves.   In the  case of Russia the unfortunate peasants  would be' like a flock of sheep surrounded  03' wolves in the shape of the nobles, the  only edi'icated'class in the -country, who  would soon concentrate all authority in  themselves and the peasants' would find  themselves w.orse off' than  ever.   That  the late Czar bettered the condition of  the peasantry is evidenced by the* fact of  his   extreme   popularity   among them,  and the   title   of "Peasant  Czar,"   by  which he was known,  was,  it is said,  more valued by him' than any of his  cither names.   To restrain the turbulent  and grasping nobles on one hand and to  mete out justice to the people on the  other is no easy matter,  and the man  who for fourteen years has done that and  has at the same time so administered the  delicate affairs of his vast empire that  he remains on friendly terms with all  the other powers may well be said to  have nobly tarried out the duties of the  high position to which he was called.  -'Uneasy rests the head that wear's a  crown," wrote the greatest of all writers.  There seems no ambition oh the part of  his immediate successors to stand in the  shoes of the dead Czar. He has actually  been succeeded by his eldest "son, lately  called the Czarewith. He, however,  showed the greatest reluctance to ascend  the throne. According to one account  he asked to be allowed to resign his  heritance and, with a pension of $150,000  a year, to live with a woman he loves  ahd with whom he has contracted a  morganatic marriage. According to  other accounts the Princess Alix, whom  he has just 'married, is his one and only  love, but there seems to have been some  difficulty,in bringing his Czar-hip up to  thascratch The-present,_Gzar-is a-very-  young man to undertake the ruling of  the Russian Empire, being only 26 years  of age, and his proceedings will be  watched with the greatest interest.  visitors   come  arrangements.  to.  inspect   her   postal  THE .KASLO A UDITOR.  Our Kaslo correspondent mentions in  his letter, which we publish this week,  that a gentleman has been appointed to  the post of city clerk and also city  auditor. Now Kaslo has the privilege  of governing itself and, like other people  who indulge in luxuries, it has the privilege also of paying the piper for that  luxury. We presume therefore that it  can appoint whom'it chooses to itis  offices, but to make one man fill at once  the duties of clerk and auditor is absurd  and a direct invitation to dishonesty.  The duty of an auditor is to see tlutt the  public money entrusted to the hands of  the city council is properly spent on the  objects for'which it is provided. It is  his duty to keep a perpetual watch' for  any case of "bdodlih'g" on the' part of  the members of the board or their  subordinates! He is the watchdog of  the citizens to look after their affairs  and he should be appointed by the  people themselves, whose interests are  under his charge and be entirely independent of the people whom it is his  duty to watch. To make the city clerk  attempt to fill the duties of the auditor's  office is ridiculous. It may be his duty  to call in question the actions of the very  men on whom he depends for his daily  bread, and as a chiaf executive officer of  the city he must keep a wary' eye' upon  himself! Was ever anything more  absurd?  POST   OFFICE_ PAY.  We cordially sympathize with the  clerks and letter' carriers of the Victoria  post office who went out on strike because they did not receive the pay that  was due to them. ������ Our sympathies,  however, are with them as persons deprived of their just rights, not. as  strikers. An extra allowance of ,$10 a  month is made to these men- in order' to  make their wretched salaries, which  may be good enough for Eastern Canada, come up to a British Columbia  standard. We wonder whether many of  the, irregularities of the post office from  which we suffer may not arise1 from an  attempt to get various carriers, to whom  the mails are entrusted, to do their|\vork  for the rates that prevail in the east.  Jf so it is hot to be wondered at that  they are sometimes careless. The situation has been considerably complicated  in Victoria by the suspension of all the  striking 'employees by order from  Ottawa. This is a distinct blunder. The"  matter was on its way to a peaceable  settlement.   The men had shown them-  1 fi  selves reasonable and ready to accept  the assurance of the Board of Trade that  endeavors would be made to have their  grievances lightened. This false step on  the part of Sib Adolph Caron, the  Postmaster:General, is only on a par  with the wretched and antiquated service which Canada puts up with, but  which wpuld not be tolerated in any  other part of Her Majesty's Dominions.  Canada has a great deal to. be proud" of,  PRIESTCRAFT OR FREEDOM.  Judgment has been given in the cele  brated Canada Revue .case. The Cunada  Revue, as we need hardly exjplain, is a  paper published in the Province of Quebec. In 1893 Father GuYHOi", cure of  St. Jaines Church in Montreal, was detected carrying 011 improper- relations  with one of the ladies of his congregation. The discovery was made through  the husband "of the lady opening a letter  which the priest had written to her from  Paris' In commenting on this case the  Canada'Revue spoke out freely about  many things. -It was intimated by the  clericals that any complaints would be  examined into, but that the press was  not the proper medium for their ventilation;' To this clerical warning the  Revue paid no attention, but went on  with its disclosures. Finally a mande^  merit was' issued by Archbishop Fabre  forbidding the faithful to read, contribute to, or have anything,to do with the  Canada Revue; This so seriously interfered with the profits of the journal' that  its proprietor sued the Archbishop for  $50,000 damages and the verdict has just  been given in favor of the clerical autocrat. An appeal has been entered  agai n 1st~ "th is-j udg men t~~and_i t ~vii U~" be1  interesting to note what the full court  will have to say about it. Of course if  the strictures made by the" paper were  untrue the verdict would'be a right ahd  proper one, but if they were correct we  can only pity our fellow Canadians who  live in a province where the freedom of  the press is subject to priestly influence.  . :.ro    'Vi.  5;, of.    ��������� ;i. .*-'   '  119 GOVERNMENT ST.,   VICTORIA, B.

It is  said that the British Consul at Calluo has,  with his family been murdered, and the  consulate sacked. A telegram from Victoria dated 2nd inst, as if to confirm it,  states that H. M. S. Koyal Arthur mid  Champion, have "hurriedly" departed for  the scene of the reported massacre. IE  indeed they have gone "hurriedly" there  may be something in it. But it is - the usual time for the Pacific Squadron to move  south and as it is not the Admiral's custom  to take newspaper reporters into his confidence about his future movements, a mat.  ter that is wily of ordinary nature * may  appear "hurried" to them.  Siuce writing the above, the scene of-the  outrage on the British Consulate has been  shifted from Peru to Costa Rica a distance  of some 1,500 miles. The same story is  reported about the sacking of the British  Consulate at Punta Arenas the sea port of  San Jose. Admiral Stevenson curiously  enough still refuses to take the Victorian  reporter into his confidence, "aud the  "rough sailor" will probably receive a  sever handling from the "journalist,"  171    C.

C, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER io 1894.  BRITISH COLUMBIA MINES.  "Mr. Robert C. Adams cojitributes a long  letter on tbe above subject to tbe "Canadian  Mining Review. We append some extracts  from it. Tbe letter is one which should  undoubtedly attract capital to this country  and yet the writer does not fail to draw  attention to the weak spots in our enterprises;  Tbe history of the development of this  region gives one of the romances of mining.  First, an advance prospector comes in  with ore that assays ahead of anything  known. Then a thousand men start into  the country. With packs weighing 50 to  75 pounds on their backs, they walk-1 20  -miles over the narrow mountain trails, and  -then through almost impenetrable timber  and underbrush, they force their weary  way up the seven thousand feet mountains,  till at last one comes to a gulley where a  snow-slide has bored the rocks and shown  large streaks of galena. He stakes off the  ground. Others come along and see the  lich show. In the hope of finding some flaw  in the title they also put up stakes, or as it is  called "jump the claim." They measure  the first stakes to see if they are not less  than four inches square. They copy all  the inscriptions, look up all the records,  and watch to catch the locator tripping in  -some lack of compliance with the many  legal formalities. In one case they even  bribed a sub-official to forge later dates in  Government record books and destroy tbe  original notices, so that the later location  would become valid.  But the prospector wins a victory by  careful observance of the mining laws, and  opening up the ground improves its appearance so that he is able to sell it to a  syndicate for what, to him, in his humble  mode of life, is a fortune. Next, the syndicate develop the property, ship some ore  that yields a high return, get a report from  a noted expert and float a company with a  million dollars capital. Now it becomes  a mine, Vast sums of money are sunk in it,  and at last great dividends may float to  the surface.  In this, as in all new mining districts,  the hazards of claim jumping have to be  reckoned with, as well as the uncertainties  of mineral deposits.   A brief sketch of the  history of the Bon Ton mine will illustrate  the difficulties that one must be prepared  for,   A rich deposit of galena was found  on this property.    The first assay   gave  1,257 oz.  of silver to the ton, aud subsequent assays went as high as 1,800 oz.  The owners opened up the ledge and left  it when the snow came.   Returning  the  next spring to work the mine, they found  the owners of the adjoining claim called  the Big Bertha, that had no ore in sight,  had annexed the Bon Ton, and on   the  strength of its "shows" had bonded the  properties under the name of Big Bertha  for a large sum of money.   A tunnel had  been run in  100 feet and ore was being  shipped away.   Then followed injunctions,  seizures and surveys, and finally the Bon  Ton owners recovered the property, though  the season for work was   over.   In   the  meantime,  three more jumps   had   been  placed upon the property, and one  of the  jumpers discovered that the Mining Ee-  corder had written S. E. instead of N. E.  in copying a notice.    Tteference to   the  original showed this to be a clerical error,  but still it was made the pretext for an  adverse claim.   A third interest was offer-;  ed to a lawyer to take up the case.   He  declined it, but there are always shysters  around a^mining camp ready for such work,  and a suit was entered and the property  hung up for nearly a year.   The plaintiffs  were non-suited with, costs,   but   being  "' penniless and non-residents   the   owners  could recover nothing of their expenses.  Nothing daunted, the jumpers proceeded  to the property and went to  work again,  running a new tunnel 75 feet and commencing to ship away ore when the leader  ���������was arrested and sent up for trial.   The  "Attorney-General, however, dismissed the  case, and said it ought never to have been  brought, and one of the instigators of the  jumpers was oppointed Mining Recorder  of the district.   But at last the Gold Commissioner signed the  Certificate  of  Improvements, upon which the Crown Patent  is granted, and the owners are wondering  whether the Queen's title will be   proof  against the wiles of Montana claim jumpers.  A good way to prove fhe value of a property is to,locate it and then  talk loudly,  and widely about its riches.   The professional claim jumpers at once start for it,  search all the records and exiimiue every  point in the "location,  aud if any" fancied  flaw is found, they put up their stakes, or  eve_ if no flaw is found,  they, locate a  claim over it for the purpose of blackmail,  thinking the owner will buy them off rather  than fight.   But if no jump is put on the  property the owner may as well  abandon  1-s ciaim.as worthless, for  these fellows  are good prospectors, and if they do not  thkik a property is worth staking   it is  pretty good proof that the surface showing  gives no indication of value.  A FRONTIER TRAGEDY.  . A terrible tragedy has taken place at  Shusharte Bay at the northern end of  Vancouver Island. Here four settlers,  J. McClughan, Fred Gosse, C. Patterson  and Harry Kipling, had come to found  the Canadian Co-operative Commonwealth of Vancouver. They had taken  up land and had built, a log house. The  rest of the settlers were to arrive in the  spring. Early on Monday morning of  last week the four pioneers were sleeping  in the house, when without a seconds  warning a terrible avalanche fell from the.  mountains at the back. As the roaring  mass of rock and mud swept on its irresistible way towards the sea it bore with  it the house and its four inmates, rolling  it over and over, tearing its huge tim  bers apart and utterly destroying it.  When the impetus of the mighty mass  was expended it stopped with its wrecked  burden on the edge of the sea. Strangely enough none of the men were killed.  Jammed among the logs, half smothered  in mud, they had so far escaped serious  inj:iry. One by one the first named  three managed to extricate themselves  from the debris and none, to soon, for  the tide was rising. But tlie last, Harry  Kipling, was held fast by one log. Deep  down in the mass of ruin one leg was  caught, and held between two timbers  and vainly he endea.vored to extricate  it. Meanwhile the rising tide silently  pointed out the terrible death that  I awaited the poor fellow unless he could  be released. The logs that gripped him  were buried deep in the mud and rock of  the slide, and his companions' efforts to  move them were additionally hampered  by the water, which had now risen  nearly to the shoulders of the prisoned  man. Vainly they redoubled their  efforts. The water rose still higher until  Kipling was only able by holding his  head up to keep his moulh above the  surface. Then the last terrible resource,  the only alternative to a horrid death  asserted itself. There was no time for  discussion, With brave lips the doomed  man gave his consent and then with a  few blows of an axe given under water,  one of the three men severed the pinioned limb and Kipling was rescued alive.  But it was scarcely to be expected that  he could survive this rude surgery.  Everything that could be done was done,  but slowly and surely his life ebbed  away with the crimson stream that  trickled from his mangled stump and in  a few hours he died. One more gathered  to that unchronicled host of heroes  dying in the advanced guard of Britain's  Empire makers.  LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY,  PRIVATE  BILLS.

So far as is yet known the Republicans  have gained a victory. New York State  has gene Republican by a majority of over  100,000 votes, and New York City for the  first time in the history of the United  States has also chosen to put herself under  Republican leadership. This means the  death of Tammany, "a consummation devoutly to be wished." What Lancashire  thinks today England will think tomorrow  is an old saying and New York for this  purpose is the Lancashire of the United  States. It is therefore predicted that at  the next Presidential election in 1896, a  Republican will be placed at the head of  the nation aud uuder his sway the hydra  headed monster, Protection, will brood  over the unhappy country.  Our immediate neighbors in Stevens  County, Washington, have elected all the  Populist candidates, except to the office of  sheriff which is rilled by a Democrat.  ioil  ��������� ���������  Carney 'Clock, \elsou, It. c.
