The mild fi.e weather, while favoring  like movements of prospectors and survey-  Kirs who are now in the field, has seriously  |j)-it.ei'_eied with the freighting of the ore  from the camp. The road to Trail ia now  bo deeply cut up (down to the dirt) by the  l.ougli locks on tbe heavy ore teams that, it  [has had to be disused and nothing is now  Igoiug out along it. Both the War Eagle  ��������� and tbe Le Roi have had to lay off a few of  ['their men, but both are actively miuing in  l,full force. Both mines aro looking to be  1 veritable bonanzas, the bottom ofthe shaft  fin the Le-Koi being all in solid ore.  On the face.of the west' drift at the War  I'.Eiigle three parties of drillers are at work,  I from which the width of tho body of ore can  lhe inferred. Tbe new tunnel or the 112  Ifoot level is'in 30 feet and follows the crop-  fping of the lead.  Mr. Clark, the contractor for freighting  ?th_ War Eagle ore, has changed camp from  [Trail Landing to the Indian reservation  J just-on-the other- side- of��������� the-interiialiomil  |v)buundai y. Twelve1 teams will begin again  this week freighting direct to Northport.  Tlie necessity for the lied Mountain  teailroad becomes impressed more pointedly  [on the minds.of people in this camp and  Uve are all glad to know, that in spite 01 the  Refl'ons of our own member of Parliament to  [wreck the best project ever put forward for  the development of this camp, Mr. Corbin  "has made all arrangements to commence  Jwork next month and- push it through to  [completion in one season. The War Eagle  [alone could uow at this moment furnish  , him with.100 tons daily.  At the Josie a strike of two feet of rich  I ore is reported.  The Nickel Plate is widening out and  yielding   $70 to   8120   ore,   ja_lifying its  J earned reputation as one of the bu_L properties, in camp.  At the O. K. quite a new development  I has taken place.   About'thirty foot from  I the end.of the tunnel a-big chamber has  |> been blown ��������� out, and has yielded an immense block of free gold quartz.   An.up-  ! raise is being driven in two feet of this ore  and the mill is running continuously stamp-  ���������** ing out the gold.   The work is well done  land a huge frame of corduroys has-been  * formed in the chamber to catch the refuse  from the upraise.   Very heavy stulls have  beeu put in, for John Y. Cole being a practical miner himself, is.not the man to risk  a brother, miners life when money and skill  can prevent it.  ���������    At the I XL, adjoining the O. K., Mr, I.  , N. Knight collected some of -the rock and  pounded out in a mortar S312 in half a day.  He is now shipping ore.  Mr. Thos. F.-. Wren has bought-a-half-  interest in the Number One on RedMoun-  ,tain from William Springer.  The house, office and warehouse for Mr.  [,W. S. Jones, the Customs officer, are well  in   hand,   bub  are   delayed   for   want of  lumber. ������ . ...  C. Van Ness' hotel is the finest building  yet erected. It will be open this week for  general business: he- is already serving  meals and boarding eight or ten  people,  GOAT RlVJ.lt DISTRICT.    '-  ( From our own correspondent.)  Considerable petty thieving has beeu going on here of late���������one party lost a set, of  harness, another a set of wbipplo-trees and  ho cu. It is about time this sort of thing  is stopped. It has gone 611'without interruption for a few years aud appears to be  steadily on the increase. Ranchers and  others know when they leave their homes  that on their return there will be something missing nud on that accourt rarely  leave their places. It is no uncommon occurrence to have the larder completely  cleaned out. One poor fellow (who was  pretty hard pressed, ioo) put. all of his  ready mouey into provisions to last him  through the winter. He had occasion to  go to a neighbors house and was away  probably two hours. On his return his  door was open and everything in the shape  of grub carried away besides some clothing. Now this is what I call "hard lines."  There is work enough in tlie valley for a  constable and Ave ought to have one. Why,  besides white people we have, about 200  Siwashes who are constantly on the trot  from one camp to another, and who are, I  should say, the most cultus, good-for-  nothing lot of Indians iu the West. They  wont work and are ever ready to do a "neat  little job" by stealing anything that comes  handy.- They own : a few bands of small  cayuBes, which are frequently changing  hands,' for our Kootenay River Indian has  developed a great taste for "seveu-up,"  much to his. detriment.  Ranchers are now studying the various  seed catalogues. A few. weeks and they  will be busy in the fields again.  Talking about ranchers ���������how is it that  more settlers do not come in here ? Perhaps  it is not generally known that there are  large tracts pf. government land fit for cultivation, waiting for.the enterprising agriculturist. It has been thought all' along  that the Dyking Compauy took in all the  land that was of any value, but that is not  so. There is almost unlimited scope in this  district tor real live tillers of the soil���������and  what soil! Mr. Rykert has raised cabbages  of enormous size, some of tbem going over  fifty pounds each. One in particular,  which I remember Mr. Marks, of Nelson,  taking along with him, weighed 53 pounds,  and yet after that there are howlers who  say we have uo soil up here. In my travels  round the valley I have come across some  splendid pieces of land, which with just a  little work would be veritable gardens of  Eden.  Mr. Wigens is up from Duck Creek and  reports that they, have to discontinue work  on the Lizard shaft on account of water.  He is ordering a diamond drill for use on  the President. .           ,.    .. .      ...  p.cted to run  1000 ounces to the ton at  ieast, so says Wharton.  The Slocau Star has to drive about 50  feet further before striking the ledge in the  lower tunnel. It is confidently expected  that ii good body of ore will be struck  there,.in' wbicli case a concentrator will  be erected some time this summer.  A strike of four feet of solid ore has been  made on the Yakima, a claim lyiug in a  basin east of the Twin Lake Basin. This  claim, with others, was bonded some time  since by Mr. Glynn of Seattle, and it is au  open secret that tlie owners of the concentrator have an option, to take up Mr.  Glynn's bond at a profit.  Mr. Mathews, the representative of the  Omaha & Grant Smeiter, has- recently  taken a lease of the Lucky Jim Group,  comprising six claims. It is the seeoud  lease he has taken, tbe first being the Keno  and shows that the smelter people are not  afraid to go,outside'their own business to  engage in mining in our camp.  At, the Broken Hill Proprietory mine in  South Australia, which is famous throughout the world, 10,487 tons ot ore were  treated iii one week'. The result was 807  tons of lend, 224,07'": ounces of silver. If  tbe same quantity of Kooteuay ore was  treated, the result would be more like 7000  tons of lead aud a million ounces of silver.  It is only on account of lack of transportation facilities chat such a quantity or more  is not put out.  . John Fritsch who was injured some time  ago in the Lizard mine, is improving  rapidly.  For the last 24 hours we have had a fine  chinook, arid the river is now very unsafe  even for, pedestrians..

Petitions have been drawn up and are  being extensively signed, requesting the  government to supply funds for the building of trails up. Eight-Mile and Ten-Mile  creeks. The petition for, the latter .is in  charge of R. B. Kerr. It is most desirable  that this trail should be made in the early  spring, as not only are there some most  promising prospects on this creek, but a  large number of prospectors have expressed  their intention of exploring there next  spring. ���������   ,   ,,.,     ��������� ......     ,. .','.,.'.. -. ,    ',. - .0  A trail is also required up the'North  Fork of ��������� Carpenter Creek.

On this question I  am heartily in sympathy with them and  am in a position lo state that nothing  iniliiencedtheirvo_esb.it the certainty  that they were working for the best  interests "of the country that they represent.

It is stated by the coast papers that at it-  conclusion Mr. Davie will take the vacant  Chief .Justiceship. Iu that case Mr. .Turner  will probably succeed hi in as Premier, retaining the ofiice of Treasurer. For the Attorney-General, Messrs! Eberts and.Helm-  cken seem to be runuiug a close, race with  the popular favour leauing slightly towards the latter.

If  this Bill is passed it will prevent the use  not only of time checks but of the notes  of the Banks of B. C. and of Montreal.  CORRESPONDENCE.  Trail, Feb. llth, 1895.  Editor Nelson Miner:   .

Editor, have hauled Mr.  Hume oyer.. the coals', foi- the same  reason, that is, voting to give no extension of time to the Red Mountain Railway scheme.

Kirk I will ask you  to print the, enclosed clipping,, taken  from lhe report of a speech delivered by  Mr. Laurier to an immense audience at  Montreal oh the 24.il day of January,  1895:  "The fate has been trembling in the  scale. .We do not know exactly what is  to take.place;; but we know this: That  the question debated today in Ottawa is  not whether there is cause adequate or  not, to go to the country, but the only  thing today debated in Ottawa is  whether or not it would be to the advantage of the Conservative party to have  a dissolution now or to have the elections  later on. If the Conservative paitysee  that it is for their advantage to go to  the country immediately, then they will  not be at a loss to invent a pretence for  dissolving parliament. In 1891 they obtained a dissolution from His Excellency  Lord Stanley by actual  DECEIT AND FALSEHOOD.  Yes, deceit and falsehood. They represented to Lord Stanley, the representative of Her Majesty" the Queen, that/  they had obtained from Mr. lilaine, the  secretary of state in Mr. ILu-rison's cabinet, an invitation to reopen negotiations for the renewal of the old reciprocity treaty of 1854. sIt was a i'alse,-  liood, for which they had afterwards to  eat humble pie at , Washington. When  Sir Charles Tapper went to Washington  a few months later he had to meet Mr.  Blaine and he had to admit to Mr.  Blaine that indeed the.statement of the  Canadian government was not true; that  "M rTBla i tieThaclliie Va rg;i veir^iTclr "airifi^  vita-ion.., They'obtained the dissolution  in 1891 011 a falsehood, but with that  falsehood they snatched a verdict from  the people of Canada."  ...I have read the criticism ofthe weekly  edition of the Empire upon this speech  andalso the, great speech of Mr. Forster  a few days later, in which he replied to  Mr.' Laurier. There is not .in either case  any attempt to contradict Mr. Laurier's  version of this disgraceful episode, and  his version is so much like mine that one  would almost, think that he had been  leading Tin.

SUNDAY OBSERVAANCE.  Nelson, Feb. 7th, 1895.  To Editoh of. The Miner:���������-  Dear Sir,���������In ypur issue.of Feb. 2nd, an  article appeared,, touching on Sunday  legislation. We. do uot-wish ..to discuss  fully-thut question just now, nbr the Bill  now, before. Parliament. .But we wish to  take exception to.some. points in your editorial.. -Itis not marked by .the fairness we  could expect.. Tt.is not expressive, of .the  feeling of.all the ..'people, of Nelson, and it  is only right that that should be publicly  stated. You .shy, "Parliament has been  pestered witli petitions." We understand  it to be the right of British subjects to approach Parliament by way of petition regarding any matter which they deem fit.  This is a part of our liberty and one of the  guardians of peace. Your characterisation  of the petitions as composed of "cheek and  cant," and the petitioners as- "bigots,"  "fanatics" 'and "without common sense,  whose opinion is not worth a rap on the  matter," is an unjust one. You say''it interferes with the liberty of the subject because itjprevent. his doing what he likes  ou Sunday." He has not such liberty any  other dav in   the  week.

The Rev. D. Campbell, in a letter published elsewhere, takes exception to our remarks ou the Sunday Observance Bill. We  are not surprised, nor do we retract one  iota from what wo there said. We should  like to see a holiday once a week secured  for everyone, and tbe best day for that  holiday is Sunday. AVe should also like to  see everyone going (o church at least once  on that day, but we do uot believe in driving people there by closing every other  means of spending their spare time. That  appears toiis to be tbe best way of making  churches, aud religions generally, obnoxious. If the parsons caunot attract people  io their churches'by their own powers we  do not believe in aiding them by acts of  Parliament. AVe maintain that every man  should be allowed to spend the day in the  ���������way which to him seems best, and that tbe  law should protect him in this right. That  is where we difier from Mr. Campbell.  We are glad to note that The Colonist is  awake to the fact that the Kootenay is a  great mining region and that its fame was  not exhausted in a single boom. "It is believed" says the leading journal, "that the  yield of the Kootenay mines will, during  the present year, amount to nuiuy millions  of dollars." The Colonist is about right  and we are pleased to think that this  knowledge of our resources has been  largely gleaned from the columus of The  Mineb from which lengthy extracts are  printed every, week in Victoria's morning  paper.  Queen Lil, the dusky sovereigu of  Hawaii has at last "resigned" the crown of  the group of islands. As a matter of fact  she was deprived of her crown months ago  aud the islands have been ruled by a republic ever since. No .doubt her sable  majesty has been casting about for some  means of getti'g herself back on to the  throne, bat'she finds out now that not only  is that impossible*, but that if she does not  resigu peaceably that which was taken  from her by force, her successors will at  once deprive.her of some very considerable  possessions which she owns. Discretion  has therefore prompted the action. Now  that,they have it entirely their own way  the group of American specul.lors who  pull the strings of Hawaii, will make the  little republic dance to whatever time they  please.  According to the editor of the Alaska  News, who is now iu Seattle, itis possible  that the celebrated camp known as Forty  Mile on the Yukon is in British territory,  indeed it is not absolutely certain that the  town of Juneau will not find itself on  British soil when the boundary question is  settled.  Although later accounts diminish the  number of victims bv the sinking of the  "Elbe" from 100 to 303, thedisas'teris still ap-  paliug in its magnitude. Some of the papers  talk rather wildly about the enquiry, but  they must remember that this will not be  held in England but iu ' Germany. The  disaster occurred on the high seas and not  in territorial waters.  ...  THE   TRAIL   TO   WHITE    GROUSE  MOUNTAIN.  To Editor Mineb.:���������  Sir,���������My attention "has been called to a  petition signed by 50 or 60 persons iu this  vicinity; more or less interested, which has  been got up by Messrs. Newell and Black,  (owners of Davie townsiti) asking the  Provincial Government for $500 to build a  " trail from Davie townsite to AArhite Grouse  Mountain,  where they have some claims,  "Tqs teado f sending th e-pe ti tio nJ'to"Vic to ri"a~  direct as., I naturally "would have supposed and passed through ���������the Gold Commissioners hands. , I think it" but just  should such a grant be made, that the expenditure of such moneys should be where  the greatest number would be benefitted.  A matter which calls for the attention of  the Gold Commissioner. If a trail is to be  built iu the district referred to above, I a in  of the opinion it should be' built up Lsi-  frahce creek, as it would touch on-White  Grouse Mountain;- making .it accsssible to  claims located there and also be the direct  route to St. Mary's. On this '-route there  are a number of claims located, some of  them with cons derable ore out ready for  shipment. .      .    -  In the proposed I rail from Davie to  White Grouse Mountain, there will be none  else   benefitted  but   Messrs. - Newall  and  .Black. On the Lal'ranco creek trail many  persons holding claims along the creek and  on the summit will be benefitted 0:i either  route there are three summits* to get over  to reach Kootenay lake, which; I do not  tliink to be very practicable, nor warranting -very vast expendituie. The natural  outlet for the mineral is an all down grade  by way of Goat River, or if found preferable  a down grade also to East Kootenay. You  might refer to Mr. Stewart's report (which  is in the Gold Commissioners office at  Nelson) of his exploratory survey up La-  franc6 creek, looking up a pass for the C.  P..B., made some two years ago, in which  he states the feasibility of a good wagon  road or trail being built. Two years ago  Black Bros, (now Newall & Black) signed a  petition for a trail up Lafranee creek. I  think.public attention should be called to  this matter.  Thanking you. for the..space given this in  your valuable paper,'! am, etc.,  ��������� i , .A Subscriber.  A cow was recently introduced at Yakulat,  Alaska, by the missionary there.

SOUTHERN.     ,  For the lust three or four yours a small  number of men, who have made it their  msiness to see West Kootenay with  heir own eyes, have been doing all that  ..dividual* can do to bring the riches of  is country to the knowledge of Oana-  ian and 'English capitalists. Articles  ave been contributed to the most iui-  oii'tant newspapers of the. world,  peeches have been made before all sorts  audiences, including the London  of Commerce, and an active  personal propaganda has been carried  n.    But though we piped to the  world,  e world would not dance tpour music,  'hey asked: "[f Kootenay is so rich,  ivhy does it send nothing out?" They  kid "When you begin to ship we. will  egin to buy." Now we have done more  inn begin 10 ship. Look at the first  plumn   of  The Miner and see what  ootenay's shipments are in spite of the  >w price  of silver.    If these shipments  ere made from any other country but  ir own we should be crazy to invest,  ut it is our own country: a good solid,  bnest business of our own and so we  ike no notice, of it. There are excep-  ons, of course,.but as a rule  the  mer.  anl.s of the capital and of Vancouver  p not advertize, i.e., do uot seek busi-  ess in our mining camps, preferring to  X! ii. go,to Winnipeg or the States. Tlie  fining brokers of Vancouver and Vic-  oria sit on their haunches and bewail  he bad times, instead of trying  to get  share of the mine  brokering which  is  low being done in Spokane,  and  worse  man all, though a few  wise and patriotic men   have put their   money  into  Imelters built or to be built in  the country in which, they, are interested,   they.  iiave to send out of Canada for their  |ioal, or letthe smelting be done in  the  smelters of the States!   Is it because we  have no coal suitable for our smelters;  kio   merchants who can compete with  Ihose of  Winnipeg   or the" States;  no  ; brokers in our two great towns.who  .now .what mines are ahd can attract  Lupital to honest   business propositions?  Not a bit of it.    The merchants are here,  but  they are  asleep;, the  brokers   are  here,   but  they  are  busy  smoking and  grumbling over  bad times; the  coal is  Idose at hand,   but  the  C. P. R.  stands  fnelween it and Kootenay. ��������� ������  --It is tune for Kootenay to realize what  Ithe true position of this coal question is.  L'n  the Crow's Nest Pass we have an  Jenoriuous deposit of excellent coal, equal  Uo the best Welsh coal, which, if it could  be  sent by rail  from  the  Crow's Nest  'ass, via Cranbrook and St. Marys River  bo Pilot Bay, could be delivered at the  [smelter there at $6 or even at $5per ton.  Co do this 120 miles of railway  would  [_iave to be built, and the men who want  [to build it are ready to do so, are iu Lon-  lon now waiting only for the grant of  the subsidy, already voted by the Dominion Government, to begin work.    It  lis, we presume, common knowledge that  |lhe Dominion Government voted .$3,200  mile for the first section of the B. C.  |Southern Railway in 1894.   A railway is  bo run from the coal deposit, through the  Crow's Nest Pass to the Upper Koote-  Inay; the first section of it to be 34 miles  |n length.   This railway will bun through  fi mineral country and will bring ore as  is well as coal to the West Kootenay  smelters.  Sib John Thompson, the then Premier,  decided that this, subsidy was to be  given to the B. C. S. unless the C. P. R.  came to terms immediately with the B. C.  S., in which case the.C. P. R. was to  build and have the subsidy.  But the C. P. R. bus not come to  terms. It is said on the other hand that  this monstrously strong corporation  maintains that all the section of country  concerned in this question should be reserved for their benefit, and that they  have strained every nerve to oppose the  granting of this subsidy to the men who  want to use it.  Sib John is dead and the history of  this trifling with the rights of a people  may never see light. It should do so.  Either men in high position greivously  misrepresent things or it is a matter  which should be exposed.  At any rate this much is certain. The  B. C. Government is now pressing  the Dominion Government for the immediate grant of the subsidy already  voted. The B. C. S. Ry. is ready to  commence building as soon as they get  that subsidy. The mines are producing  ore enough to warrant the bringing of  coal to. our smelters and we are losing  money and work for our people by  sending the ore out of our country to be  smelted, buying other peoples coal instead of using our own.  It should be clearly understood that  whilst B. C acknowledges a certain  debt of gratitude to the C. P. R. for  opening up this country she is not prepared to pay it with her life blood. She  has paid enough already. The Canadian  Pacific Railway was made for British  Columbia as apart of Canada, and not  Canada for the Canadian Pacific Railway.  If the Crow's-Nest coal can be shipped  j to Kootenay, it can be sold  there at  $6  i per ton.    At the present   moment the  freight alone on  coke delivered at Pilot  Bay comes  to   $8.75.   The coal of  the  Crow's Nest will become a valuable asset  instead of dormant riches.    It will  employ  a   very  large number of  men   to  mine     the     coal,      men      to    freight  the     coal    to    Kootenay,     men    "to  smelt    the     ores    in     Kootenay.     It  will leave to mine owners the cost of  freighting the  ore to foreign  smelters  and to smelting men the difference  between  $0 ahd  $12.75 per ton  for  coal.  Now   we   make   our   money   out   of  mining the ore and selling it.    If we had  this 120 miles of road which the B. C. S.  wants to build we should keep all the  labour and most of the prolit in our own  province; we should ourselves mine the  coal and sell it; we should freight it and  be paid for freighting it;  we should  do  our own smelting and make a profit on  all these various operations as well as on.  the mining   and  sale   of our   ore and  should immensely add to our population.  Is it possible   that   the   present Dominion Government is not strong enough  to control the Canadian Pacific Raihvay  company?���������I-f--it--is���������noly-t-ho-people-of-  this part of Canada will be asking at the  next election whether it is strong enough  to   govern   the Dominion?    These are  serious questions worthy a statesman's  consideration..    This   we    know,    that  British Columbia wants its own coal for  its own smelters; wants its own  labouring men employed to smelt its own ores,  and does not want its prosperity to wait  another seven years  upon  the  conven  ience of any company.  as some important matters came up which  the parties present were uot prepared to  deal with, owing to want of full authority  and other reasons, the agreement between  the companies was not then and there con:  eluded, but was postpoued for a short time  for further consideration aud the obtaining  of the needful authority to conclude an  amicable arrangement. It is likely that  this will be effected soon, and we siucerely  hope that it may, as, whilst the government  is not at present committed to the N. ������fe F.  S., on the other hand it is by no means the  case so fur, that the C. P. R. have established any right to the water front east of  Ward street. The present government  certainly will not permit any "dog in the  manger'" action where the public interests  are concerned. We cannot fiud that Mb.  Hume has ascertained anything or done  anything with respect to this matter. What  did-his supporters send him to Victoria to  do ? Is he stopping the Five Mile Point  Railway as he tried, by his vote to stop the  Red Mountain Railway ?

Squire,  the Nelson Tailor, has just  received a large consignment of  BRITISH POLITICS.  The British Parliament was opened 011  the. 5th and the perusal,of the Queen's  Speech leaves the Impression that there  will be lively times, politically, in the old  country. For some time the Irish have  been protesting that unless Home Rule is  made a prominent feature ot the session,  they will desert the Liberals and vote in  opposition witli the Conservatives. This  of course means the downfall of-Lord Rosebery and his party. There is absolutely  no mention whatever of Home Rule iu the  speech. The only reference made about  Irish affairs is to the effect that law and  order prevail to an unprecedented degree  in the Emerald Isle and that a proposal  will be brought forward to remedy defects,  iu the law of landlord and tenant. This  will not satisfy Pat. The only remedy to  that law in his opinion is the total removal  of the Landlords by force aud this he has  been taught to believe.would be a righteous  and just act. The new bill, however, is  not likely to contain provisions of so drastic  a nature. The Irish party will do as it has  done before; walk across the Floor of the  House and eject the party it placed in  power. We may expect to hear of Loud  Rosebeey's resignation any day. Should  this happen, the Conservatives will return  to power and the covenant between them  aud the Liberal "Unionists, which has for  its object the maintenance of our National  Unity, will be further strengthened by the  admission of Mr. Joseph Chamberlain  into the Cabinet. Nor should we be surprised to see the Duke of Devonshire also  among the new ministers. Our readers  will remember that the leaders of this  party are all pledged to Bimetalism.

TERMINUS.    ~  The position of the railway right-of-way  and terminus question is as follows, and it  will be determined without any reference  to the expressed desire of the Tribune that  there should be no-line from Five Mile  Point, aud no terminus at Nelson but'bnly  a small station up the mountain.   ���������  Some correspondence took place on the  subject in 1891, between the Hour. .John  Robson, the late Premier, and Mb. Abbott  of the C-. P. R., but it is difficult to tell  exactly from this correspondence .what was  the agreement in reference to the right-of-  way east of Ward street. When the'Hon.  T. Davie was here lately, he examined the  locality on the,spot, and also from the boat  on the lake, aud on returning to Victoria,  brought about a hearing before the Executive of the parties concerned, represented by Mr. Corbin aud Major Dtjpont  on one side and Mr. Abbott on the other.  The purpose of the heariug was to ascertain if the parties could arrange the matter  without the government being called upon  ���������a desirable course and one likely to avoid  delay under the circumstances. This appeared to be recognized at the hearing, but  NEWS OF THE WORLD.  In the Houso of Commons the Goveru-  menfc-woi.-its-first-divisio'n-by_oulv-12-.votes;-  273 to 261.   The Parnellites voted with the  Conservatives. ' ..  . The Chinese loan iu Loudon was a failure.'the public did not subscribe more than  half of it. The bonds at last hearing were  at 2 per cent discount.  It is hoped that the threatened war betweeu Mexico and' Guatemala will be  averted. Mexico has sent, a commission  to the frontier to investigate the claims of  injured individuals.  Diamonds are. reported from the Crater  of Mount Edgcumbe in Alaska.. A "Mr.  Frobese of Sitka', who claims to be an expert and who is most highly spoken of by  the '"Alaskan" vouches for. their genuineness and is confident that the crater bed is  "full of. them." We wonder how large that  crater bed is.  Thecostof the Brooklyn strike which'lasted  a fortnight, is estimated at $1,760,054 as  follows: For wages, 6,000 men at 82 per  day for fourteen days, 8168,000; for railroad fares, 1,300 cars, average loss per day  for fourteen days, $25 each, ������455,000; for  extra police, 500 men, fourteen days at ������3  per day, 21,000- estimated loss to business  in Brooklyn, two'weeks at 8500,000 a week,  ������1,000,000.  - The.following is the' official despatch to  the the United States Government concerning the Hawaiian revolt.
