BRITISH   COLUMBIA'S   FUTURE.  In a leading article under the above  heading tbe Loudon Miuing Journal  has the following;  'Miners are rushing there by thous-  ... ands,   and gradually,  but  only   too  .'   Burely, the  attention ' of the  outside  world is being attracted in the same  direction.   In a   paper recently read  v    before the Royal Colonial   Institute.  Professor Sir G;' M. Dawson,   K. C. M.  G., F.R. G. S., Director-General of the  *.' Royal'Geological Society of Canada,  ."   stated that the Cordilleran belt had,,  whenever it had been adequately examined, proved to, be rich in precious  . metals as well as iu other ores; .and  ��������� though some parts of this ore-bearing  i region, are undoubtedly licher than  '"'��������� Others,  "generally    speaking . it    is  throughout a metalliferous couutry.  "The Province of British Columbia  alone from south-east to north-west includes a length of 800 miles ot the  Cordilleran region, and adding to this  the further extension of the same re-  * gion comprised within the boundaries  of' the Dominion of Canada, as a  whole, its entire length in Canada is  between 1200 and 1300 miles. *{Circuiu:  tances have favored the developmen t  of the mines of the Western States of  the Union, but it is as nearly, as may  ��������� be"certain that the northern half of  ��������� ���������' tlie similar region will eventually prove  equal in richness to the southern ; and  when .the mines of these Western  '_. States miiy have passed the zenith of  their productiveness, those of the  North will be still increasing in this  respect." The Professor then pointed  out that, in addition  to gold, British  .-Columbia is extremely rich in numerous other minerals. Here- may be  found large deposits - of iron,' whilst  copper ores have also been discovered  in many places. Mercury, in the form  of cinnabar, promises to be pf value  in the 'near future,, whilst plumbago,  ruica, and asbestos are also known to  exist. Coal, likewise, is abundant, and  at the present moment rests on a substantial basis of increasing prosperity.  '-' Mr.-John B. Hobson, in the course of  his speech before th������������ Chamber of  Mines, in San Francisco, in December,  -1864, enthusiastically exclaimed: "I  - do not.hesitate to predict that the day  is not far distant when the gold output of British Columbia will astonish  the civilized world." Had we space at  our disposal, we could, of course, enumerate the confirmatory opinions of  many other experts, but we have sufficient evidence, we think, to say that  British Columbia is a country destined to come to the front, and that in  the not distant future, and it will be  Strange if English capital is longer  -withheld from it."  NELSON. :  On Thursday morning an important  episode in .the erection of the Hall Mines  works took place. Tlie last splice was  made in the rope that will now everlastingly travel between tho summit of  Toad Mountain and Kelson. This now  endless rope is 9 miles long. It is supported on 123 towers, and. its. upper end  is some 4,500 feet above its lower  terminus. At this end it passes round a  large horizontal wheel, which is built on  ������ strongly built carriage that travels on  wheels above the ore bins: This is necessary to ensure the proper tension on the  rope . and a play of .about 80  feet is allowed for. The strain at tho  lower end is-further provided .-for by a  weight passing over a lofty pulley. The  work of fixing the buckets, of which  there are ������00, on to the wire will now be  commenced. This will not take long,  and in a few days the entire tramway  will be in working order.  The ore bins are rapidly growing, and  one or more will be ready to receive ore  bs soon as the tramway is ready to  deliver it.  .  On the smelter itself a. large force of  men are. at work and the foundations,  which .are of solid granite, are going  in rapidly.  ,,' PILOT BAY.  The smelter stack has been blown in  again and is now in full swing.  Work is also resumed .at the Blue  Bell with Capt. Wilson, late of the  Galena, in charge.  ROS3LAND.  (From our Special Correspondent!)  The mines are proving themselves  more permanent every day and outside  capital is being largely attracted..  On Tuesday evening' Prof, and Mrs.  Graham gave a fancy dress ball In Donahue's hall, which wss the success of the  season.  Columbia Avenue is rapidly becoming  a solid street from end to end, and the  class of buildings put up is evidence of  tbe faith tbe inhabitants have in their  rapidly built town..  The War Eogle compressor.plant is  very nearly ~ completed. The boiler ar-  lived last Saturday,having had 16 horses  struggling 4 days between Trail Landing  and its destination.  . We have been favored this week by tbe  visit of Mr. 'Norman, of London, Eng.,  who is in this country looking ..out for  mining property for ��������� a- very . wealthy  syndicate of English capitalists. Mr.  johann Wulffisohn, of "Vancouver,- accompanied him.   *    ~ "i.       "*'   v.    ���������/" >t  Some of the Crown Point machinery is  on the ground and in process of erection.  The compressor plants for the Cliff,  Centre Star, R. E. Lee and Maid of Erin  are daily expected, and when these "arrive  Rossland and vicinity will be a busy  place. '  Everything in this camp is exceedingly  busy and people are taking advantage of  the beautiful weather which we are having and preparing themselves for the  winter. The canvas town is rapidly  diminishing and everyone who is able is  getting into more,, permanent and comfortable quarters. Another hotel (Shanes)  was added to the large number already  open this week and is doing an equally  good business with the rest.  Last Friday a mass meeting of the  citizens was called to discuss the.- question of the removal of the post office and  great-enthusiasnrwas displayed.-" Judge"  Newton had a very hard time keeping  the meeting from all having their say at  the same time. After a discussion of an  hour or more, Mr. Fletcher, the post  office inspector, stepped in and decided  upon its removal. It is now situated in  a, more convenient spot for everyone,  with more light and room, opposite tb the  Kootenay Hotel.  NEW DENVER.  R. C. Campbell-Johnson, has just  recorded a claim on Springer Creek.  There are several deals on hand but  until they are settled it would be unwise to give names of claims or parties.  Fair offers have been refused for  bonds on the Enterprise, on Ten Mile  Creek, and Arlington on Springer  Creek.   Higher offers looked for.  Harris and Kelly of the Rueccau are  applying for a water right, the water  to be taken from above Cody Creek.  This looks as if they contemplated  building a concentrator to treat their  ores."   - ���������  A hand car jumped the track on  Thursday this side of the concentrator,  in consequence of which Pat Gallagher is laid up with a broken leg, an  Italian with a broken arm and another  with severe cuts and bruises.  The owners of tbe townsite at Slocan  City have given| a contract to   some  Erospectors on Springer , Creek to  aiid a trail three miles up that creek  and it is hoped that at any rate next  spring an appropriation will be made  to continue it to the head of the' creek.  On Tuesday Mr. Mitchell, more  generally known as Tommy Mitchell,  who is superintending the putting up  of the concentrators for the Slocan  Star and Washington Companies, fell  from the building at Sandon and sustained a fraction of several ribs. He  will.probably..be laid up for some time.  "What will possibly prove the best  strike made on Lemon ' Creek was  made a few days. ago. Faas,. Crawford  jand" clay ' discovered a ledge 3 feet  wide; full of black sulphurets and  native silver. The claims, 3' in number are almost opposite the Tiger, on  the ridge between the north and: south  forks of Lemon Creek.  It is strange that capital has not yet  been attracted to the prospects on  Springer and Lemon creeks. At the  present time four separate ontfits are  getting out ore on the Lemou Creek  slope of the divide, between the two  creeks. They have , made their own  trails without the assistance of the  Government, and some ore is already  on the shore at Slocan City for shipment.  Messrs. Finch and Aylard have this  week visited the Kirkwood group on  Ten Mile Creek, and the Arlington on,  Springer Creek, but it is not yet known  whether Mr. Finch will take hold of  any properties down the lake. It is  certain however, that he has thrown  up the bond on the Wonderful. His  pluck in continuing to search for;������h_;  ledge on this property deserved better  luck. It is nearly certain that there  is a good ledge on this property. and  someone will run across it some day*. "-'  LOCAL   NEWS.  (JKAWFOBD   CREEK. -;.-..  Another rich strike has been made on  Hooker Creek, consisting of-a large ledge  of grey copper, whioh assays very high  in silver. Numbers ot men are rushing  to the new field.  BARKERVILLE.  A letter dated Sept. 26th states that  it has been raining and snowing there  for the past fortnight, and on the  night of the 28th was snowing heavily.  The season is fast closing.. lhe Whittier Company on Williams Creek have  70 men employed on their works. Over  COO leases of placer .ground are nc won  record in the Richfield office, such has  been the rush for placer ground during  the last year.���������Colonist.. ��������� -. ���������.������������������ .,������������������ . ,   .  . MIDWAY.   (Midway Advance.)  Mr. Clement Vacher has about copi--  pleted the ditch which he is'building'  to carry ,watei. from a creek' near by'  on to his claim, the Jack of Spades,  and which is intended to use tor. milling purposes, as the erection of a mill  is contemplated by himself and-co--  partners at no distant date.. -  On the Snowshoe claim, Greenwood  camp, Messrs. R. Denzler and Thomas  McDonald are building, besides a nice  snug house in which to winter, an ore  bin of large capacity, and will without)  delay, as soon as these necessary improvements are carried out, start to  sink a ..-foot shaft upon the claim.  This is the kind of development the  country needs, as also more such men"  as the above, who are not at all dilatory in opening up their propetties.  Under this amount of development,  the Snowshoe should be an extremely  saleable mine.  Mr. W. T.. Smith, the foreman in,  charge of development work in Gr'ee'n-'j  .wood cainp for'theParrett Company,"  has a gang of men engaged making a  road to--connect, the camp wiih the  main trunk road at a point near Wellington camp. This is made necessaky  so, as to obviate the cost of pa^kingriii  supplies and machinery instead1 of  hauling by wagon. We hive repeatedly  during the summer pointed out to the  government-'the. great need of road  co-uniuntcation to the camp, but they  seem determined to allow the miners  to do their own road making or be  without them.  alberni!  (From our Special Correspondent.)  The Alberni district is today a scene of  very considerable excitement and of an  excitement whioh seems thoroughly warranted by the assays of such reliable men  as Mr. W. Pellew-Harvey, of Vaucouyer.  Prospectors are at work all through the  district and a large number of valuable  quartz ledges have been located aud are  being opened_up_bythe_locators..J.Mpney  is being put in by Victoria, Nauaihio,  Wellington and some outside capitalists.  A second stage has been started on the  Alberni road and the Iudians are kept.  pretty busy taking new comers downline  Canal to China, Granite and Coleman  Creeks. The Coleman Creek rock is t_e  queerest looking stuff that ever carried  gold. Men seem in doubt as to its true  nature. Some of it looks like conglomerate, other parts like rotted slate with  thin veins of quartz running through it.  It seems to be pockety, < tuough the experts declare that the few. unsatisfactory  ussays which have been made are of rock'  taken from a "horse" which, pushes  through the mineral bearing rock. Some  of. this rock is so soft that you* can  crumble it in your hands, and from this  we have seen wonderful pahs made. The  assays on Coleman Creek go from a  trace to 8480, and there is a hill side of  the stuff. It is rumored that another  strike of the same kiud of ore has beeu  made on the Canal, aud it is known that  an extremely extensive quartz ledge has  been struck upon Sproat River. This  ledge, which is being rapidly developed,  is opened how'for 40 feet and is said to  be some 20 or 30 feet wide. The rock on  the top was soft and had a large proportion of lime in it, but now at a depth of  9 feet it is harder, and darker, carrying  an unusually large proportion of small  iron pyrites and looking much like that  favorite property, the Star of the West.  Tbe asssvs obtained from it were, from  Platt, of 'New York, $11,814 and $60, and  from Price, of San Francisco, $4. Mr.  Pelley-Harvey'e assays, upon whiuh all  Albevni men are beginning to base their  opinion of quartz, are not to hand yet.  This property is magnificently situated  with regard to water power and road  facilities and improves with every blast.  It is said that the dispute as to the  ownership of the rich Alberni claims, the  Chicago and Warspite will be settled in  court next month, the- money for litigation having been founds on both sides.  Claim jumping has already, begun here,  nine hydraulic claims having been jumped last week. ��������� Some 'nuggets I saw  brought in by* Chinamen from Sproat  River., last week wei e enough to make  men hunger for claims to jump.  W. Springer is now at Boundary  Creek inspecting, the properties there.  Tenders are' invited in another  column for painting the Methodist  church. >  The second annual general meeting  of the Nelson Hydraulic Co., will be  held on 4th November.  The well known firm of McFarland  & Mahon of Vancouver has now become Mahon McFarland & Mahon Ld.  i ��������� ? < - ���������  , Maurice O'Connor was taken.from  Nelson to Kamloops on Wednesday in  charge of special constables Love and  Perks. -'  Very extensive alterations are going  on in the store next to the Bank of B. C,  which is shortly to be occupied by A. T.  Garland. The work is in the hands of  R. Stuckey.  The telegram announcing his Excellency's proposed visit to Nelson was  addressed to the Mayor who does not  exist instead of to the Government  Agent as it should have been.  ' The Bishop of New Westminster will  visit this part of his diocese next week  and on' Sunday 19th will preach at  Kaslo. On the 26th his lordship will  preach at Nelson.  '. The Nelson drug store is now quartered  in its new'premise's on Baker street, and  the, other .half of the. building being occupied by. Graham's boot and shoe store  the whole presents a very creditable appearance.     " "  Sir Joseph Trutch, chairman of the  Hall Mines Ld., is expected to arrive  in Nelson on Tuesday next. Sir Joseph  is. just vback from Alaska where he  ���������has.been on business connected. with  .^he. Bears Nest mine..  "������������������"���������The action for. libel which Captain,  Fitzstubbs, Gold Commissioner and  Government Agent had., brought  against the Tribune has been settled.  The paper has acknowledged its error  and printed an apology which has  been accepted.  The Ladies Aid Society of the Presbyterian Church, intend holding a  social next Tuesday evening, Oct. 15th,  at.Mrs. Colwell's. The public are cordially invited to attend. Refreshments  will be served during the evening, and  'a collection will be taken up.  Mr. H. W. Pellew-Harvey is putting  up a very complete assay plant at his  laboratory in. Vancouver. When finished the works will contain besides  the usual' furnaces, a chlorination  plant, a stamp mill, and a one ton  water,jacket smelting,stack. ,, ..    ,, i  '���������'Mr'*James Anderson,late purser of the  Nakusp, arrived in town last night. He  has now left the service of the C. & K- S.  JKT. Co., but will act in future as the cpm-  pauy's'agent at .Trail,, where he will reside  a[nd.c.arry on thebusiness of banker and  real estate-agent in connection with  Messrs. Bealey and Richardson.  ,. It is a sign of good times when Mr.  ;Hamilton, Station Agent of the C. P.  R. is unable to get any replies to his  notice calling for tenders rbr the cutting of . .3 or "CD cords of wood. He  informs us thkt he will be compelled tb  get the contractors down from the  main line to supply him.  The present demand for houses'in  Nelsonmust soon, give rise to extensive building operations and it is satis  factoiy. to know that Nelson now  boasts a sash and door factory of its  own, swhere in addition to windows  and doors all the finer mouldings and  other-woodwork required in finishing  a house can be obtained. Nelson owes  this to ^the enterprise of Richard  Stuckey. He has how got in his mill  all the latest wood working machinery  and there is nothing that can.be  wanted in any Nelson house that he  cannot turn out,  The Hon. J. H. Turner, premier of  British ..Columbia, cams clown from  Revelstoke on his returnfrorn London  and arrived at Nelson late on Tuesday"  'evening! Mr.' Turner has been in  England, on .business connected with  the new loan,, but was detained for  over, two months by a serious illness.  From this he has "now completely recovered and the honorable gentleman  is as hearty and as brisk as ever. He  had little time to spend here and left  again for Victoria'on Wednesday afternoon. Mr. Turner confirmed the rumors  of the flow of British capital toward  this province. Several syndicates are  formed in London with large* amounts  of money in hand and their agents and  advisers are now amongst us.  The firm of Palmer & Ray is well  known to all newspaper'"'men in the  Northwest. With two great houses, one  at Portland and one at San Francisco,  it; has always had on hand a large  stock of the best material and has  always been prompt to supply orders.  Although personally unacquainted  with any members of the firm it seemed'like losing an old friend when recently the business became incorporated with the American Type Founders Co!, and the familiar address was  changed. Mr. E. H. Palmer, who  founded the Portland branch 15 years  ago has now removed to San Francisco  to take charge as Pacific Coast manager of all the western branches of th������  American Type Founders Co., and his  place is filled by Mr. J. X. Brands of  Chicago.  THE ARMENIAN TROUBLE.  London; Oct. 3.���������Many important messages have been received at the British  foreign office from Sir Phillip Currie,  British ambassador at Constantinople.  The appointment of Kiamil Pasha as  Grand Vizier, recently announced, is re  garded at the foreign office as a happy-  circumstance. He has tbe reputation ol  being one of the most broad minded and  enlightened statesmen of the Ottomar  empire, and is looked upon as the right  man in the right place. The belief pre  vails.in official circles that the rioting in  Constantinople was deliberately.planned  in order to bring about direct interference upon the part of Great Britain,  France and Russia in the administration  of Armenia. The introduction of the  religious element makes the subject more  grave, although the primary cause of the  outbreak is said to be long delays in the  negotiations between the Powers and the  Forte in the question ofi reform in Armenia  Constantinople, Oct. 3.���������Owing to tbe  critical situation the envoys of the Powers met at the Austrian embassy here today, and the German gunboat was ordered to remain at the disposal of the embassy. It is known definitely that at  least five Armenians were killed after  they were arrested on Monday, and this  caused great consternation. Regarding  the death of the Turkish Major Serviet  Bey, witnesses of the affair affirm that  the Armenians did not use their revolvers until he had ordered the police to  open fire upon them. According to police  reports only 20 persons were killed and  80 wounded during the rioting on Monday, but reliable estimates place the number of killed at over 200. News was received here during the day from Damascus which still further increases the  gravity, of the situation. The French  consul at that place has been attacked by  a mob and pelted with mud. The French  embassy has complained to the Porte,  and demanded prompt redress.  MAKING A HOME AT AINSWORTH  About a year ago Messrs. - McVicar A  Shaw, of New Brunswick, paid a visit to  Nelson and began looking over mining  properties. They were, eventually attracted to some claims on Woodbury  Creek, near Ainsworth, and upon these  they have' done a good deal of work  without auy commensurate results. _R������  cently, however, they have taken posst.;-  eion of the celebrated No. 1 - miue at  Ainsworth, which tiiey are working most  assiduously. and keeping, their conceu  trator busy. As-'an-.-evidence .of'his  intention to stick to' this country, Mr.  McVicar returned from his Eastern  home on Tuesday last accompanied by  his wife and family and also by. a numerous contingent of ladies and children,  who came out at the same time tb join  their husbands, who are associated with  Mr. McVicar, On the arrival of the  party at Ainsworth the population ol  that town must Lave beeu nearly  doubled. We regrst. to learu that Mr.  Shaw is still prostrated from the effect,  of his recent illness and is quite unable  to attend to business in any shape or  form, or to leave his home in the east.  Owing to this the taking up of the bond  on the Princess is yet iu abeyance.  VISIT  OF   TIIK GOVERNOR GENERAL   TO  KOOTENAY.  ^-Their���������Excellencies���������^the���������Earl--ana  Countess of Aberdeen will arrive in Nelson by the C. & K. train on Tuesday-  next and will remain here for the night.  On Wednesday morning they will leave  on the s.s. Nelson for a trip to Pilot Bay  and Kootenay Lake, possibly reaching  Kaslo and returning to Nelson in the  evening to catch the* outgoing C- & K.  train, which together with the s. s.  Nakusp will be held for their convenience.  A public meeting is, we understand,  convened for this evening at the fire hall  to arrange ubout what is to be doue t j  receive their Excellencies.  CHURCH NOTICES.  STRIKE ON THE STARLIGHT.  After a somewhat longer period than  was at first anticipated the vein has been  cut ou the Starlight. This claim is the  property* of Messrs. A. H. Kelly and A.  H. Buchanan and is under bond to Mr.  A E. Humphreys.  SILVER.  Silver ' during the past week has  reached 68% cents per ounce, the highest price for more than two years. At  the beginning of this, year it fell below  60c and remained near that figure for  some time. In the spring it made a  sudden jump' to 66-67, where it has  steadily- remained ever since, rarely-  passing either figure, but during the  past week it has risen more than a cent  aud a half, to 63%. This is, after all, tbe  result ofthe Japan-Chinese war. Large  accumulations of silver are being made  in London in anticipation of Chinese  loans. The production of the white  metal has so far not exceeded its average, hence the rise in the price.  Sunday, October 12,1805.  Methodist Cmntcu, Hume's Hall.  Vernon Street?

THE LILLOOET FRASER RIVER AND CARIBOO GOLD FIELDS LIMITED.  Mr. Frank S. Barnard arrived in Nelson from the Slocan last evening. He is  accompanied by Mr. Cecil Slade of London who is also connected with the Lillooet, Fraser River, and Cariboo Gold  Fields Co. Mr. Barnard informs us tbat  die scope of this company has recently  been considerably enlarged and that it  ivill no longer confine itself to the few  Lillooet properties as stated in its original  irospectus and alluded to in another  column, but is prepared to take up other  -lining properties here or elsewhere.  They have visited must of the. principal  mines in the Slocan and on Monday will  leave for Rossland. The result of '.the  recent changes in the constitution of  this company will be to increase the  capital from ������130,000 to ������300,000 and tbe  number of directors from five to nine.  The additional directors are Mr.. Forbes  G. Vernon, Mr. Henri Rosenbein, Baron  de Machiels and Dr. Jules Goldschmidt,  the last three being resident in Paris.  Mr. F. S. Barnard is to be managing  director.  SCHOOL REPORT.

The little four or.five acre patch of  rock at the entrance to Oak Bay, known  as Mary Todd islands, would scarcely be  taken says the Colonist, for the hiding  place of the treasures of a Monte Cristo���������  in fact it has hitherto been looked upon  as practically valueless. It was given its  aevr importance on. Tuesday last, when  a party of prominent Victorians made* the  discovery upon it of several ledges of  what' appears, to be valuable gold-bearing quartz���������one of the veins being about  twenty-four feet wide. Specimens from  these ledges are now being assayed -and  future operations await the result. In  the'meantime the Monte Cristo claim has  been duly located and recorded. The Island is the property of Mr. J. H. Todd.  MINING NOTES.  Advices from the claims of the Horse  Fly Hydraulic Mining Company up to  Sept. 27th report tbat operations bad  been going on satisfactorily. A clean up  will take place shortly.  The Mining and Scientific Press says  that the extraordinary demand for copper iu the electric world directs attention��������� to���������the -fact���������-tbat���������nearly--every-*  mountain county in, California has copper that at present prices will vpav to  mine and export. The same applies to all  the Southern parts of B. C.  The Butte Miner asserts positively that  a quarter interest in.the Anaconda mine  has been sold to Rothschilds syndicate,  the stock has already been placed on the  London market by the syndicate, and  that the Rothschilds have an option on  the remaining three quarters of the stock  and in all probability will purchase it unless the report made by Hamilton Smith  be unfavorable.  Reports from the Cariboo Hydraulic  Mining Company's mine on the Quesnelle  River up lo Sept.-20tb state that in consequence of repairs being necessary to  part of the east branch sluice, hydraulic  operations had to be suspended in order  to repair the sides and put in new riffle  blocks. In the course of doing this  amalgam worth about 810,000 was taken  out. No attempt to clean up was made  and work was resumed. It. is probable  there will be a clean up about the 15 th  inst. ^  J. S. Bell, in the World, reports considerable activity in Mining matters in  the Lillooet district. At the Bonanza  miue there are already^ 500 tons of ore  on the dump. Work is to be renewed  shortly on the Vancouver Enterprise a  placer claim on Cayuse creek. Twenty-  five men are at work for the Bridge  River Gold Mining Co., nt Horseshoe  Bend. New quartz stakes have been  made on Anderson lake. An English  syndicate is going to run a 840,000 ditch  to bring water from Cayuse creek to the  McDonald & Hurley* placer claim on tha  east bank of the Fraser.  The Company, for which Mr. F. S.  Barnard has apparently succeeded in  raising a large capital' is the Lillooet,  Fraser River & Cariboo Gold Fields L'd.  In March last we received a . prospectus  of this company, which asked for a capital of ������50,000. That apparently was not  enough for its needs, as at a recent meeting in London the capital was increased  to ������300,000,000. The directors have  shown their confidence in the undertaking by subscribing large Bums themselves]! and it is announced that the  shareholders have " "unanimously consented'- to subscribe the remainder. The  original object of the company was to  acquire and work the Irving, Jensen, Mc-*  Donald and Henley, Robson and Welton  claims at Lillooet Among the shareholders are Barons Rothschild and  Hirsch. THE MINER, NELSON, B. C, SATURDAY. OCTOBER 21.  1895.  HE WENT TO A BALL.  OVERCOME BY THE HOSPITALITY OF  YOUNG   LOUISVILLE  MEN.  ANNOUNCING   LEE'S SURRENDER.  The Dauce Was at ��������������� Female Seminary, und  It Watt Full of Surprises���������The Stranger  Declared Ho Would Never Attend Another "Swell" l)n������(_c In Kentucky.  "Speaking of practical jokes," said a  drummer at oue of the hotels the other  night, "I was tho victim of one of tho  most embarrassing I have heard of for a  long time. _ It was during my first trip  south, and uot being familiar witli the  peoplo iu this part of the country I  thought I had found a really sociablo  place when three youug 'swells' of tho  town with whom I had been talking the  evening before asked mo to go with  them to a danco that was to bo given at  a femalo seminary a few miles from this  city. I had beon away from home for  some time, and not having had thc  pleasure of being iu the company of  young ladies I was fairly delighted at  the idea of spending a pleasant evening.,  "I told them I would be pleased.to;  go, aud after hurried preparation we'  started. The young men laughed at the  idea of my paying anything toward the  carriage hire, and I felt that I had never  been in the company of a more hospitable set of men.  "When wo arrived at the place, the  -dance had already begun. We left the  carriage in care of a negro man and entered tho ballroom. Of course I folt very  strange at first among so many strangers,  but my companions seemed to feol quite  at home and insisted that I should meet  some of the young women at once. One  of the young men took me by the arm  and led mo across the room to where  there sat a young woman who was rather  pretty and had an extremely neat appearance.  "After receiving an introduction to  her I sat down and started a conversation. Soon she was talking at an astonishingly rapid rate. I became rather interested in the girl, but was very much  surprised to learn that she was the twentieth daughter of a wealthy farmer. At  last she began to talk aud laugh so loudly that I began to feel a little embarrassed and asked her if she did not want  to dance. .She was on her feet in an instant, and we had danced a few steps  when she suddenly yelled out at the top  of her voice: 'Don't! Don't 1 Oh, don't  hold me so tight! I am full of dynamite. ' And she uttered a yell that made  the cold chills run up and down my  back.  "I turned her loose in an instant and  stood simply horrified. I felt like swearing when the other people in the room  only laughed ahd went on dancing. I  did not know what to do. I knew I had  done nothing I should not have done,  intentionally at least, but I started up  to her with au apology, wheu^one of my  companions came up with a young woman on his arm. He gave me an introduction to her and asked rue if I would not  dance the next sot with her. I did not  fool like dancing a bit, but there was no  way of getting out of it, so I told him I  would. While.we were sitting down  waiting for the next dance she told me  ��������� she had been married 14 times and had  1,000 children at home. I thought she  Was just trying to joko me and asked  her where she lived. She said she lived  in heaven. I knew something was wrong  with her, and I made up my mind right  there that I would uot dauce with her.  " I asked her to excuse me a moment, aud  without waiting .for a reply rushed  across the room toward the door. I  thought to myself that if I once got ou  the outside I would never attend'another  'swell dance' in Kentucky.  "I had got within a few feet of the  door when an old woman ran up and  threw her arms around my neck. She  yelled out that I was her. lost son, who_  "fan" away"from~^lionie"~"100���������yeara-ago,-  when I was a mere child. I tried to tear  myself away from tho woman, and she  fainted at my feet. I made" a d.'irt for  the door, and when I reached the threshold I looked back, and saw several persons carrying her off the floor. I was  dazed. I expected to be arrested every  moment. I saw a man outside and asked  him if there was not a train leaving that  place soon. He said there would be one  going to Louisville in about an hour,  and I concluded to wait, around the little station until it was ready to leave. I  "do not remember to. have ever heard a  - more welcome sound than the whistle  of that train, after spending an hour iu  silent misery. I reached my hotel in this  city shortly .after midnight, but could  not sleep. I had ��������� learned on tho train  that .1 had beeu to an ihsituo asylum  hall, and I was'as mad as a hornet..  "The next morning the  young men  -' came around to tho hotel and apologized,  and now they are tho best friends I have  in this city."���������Louisville Courier-Journal. _^ .   The Truth of the Matter.,  The Bookman tells a story of Mr. F.  Cope Whitehouse,- who recently spent  five years iu" Europe- He had been long  in conflict with both British and Egyptian authorities on the question of irrigating a certain district aud found them  almost equally conservative. After a  time he met Lord Cromer, just arrived  ' in the country, and was received with a  - chilling coolness.  "I really cannot go into these matters  with you," said Lord Cromer, "because  I hear that you treated -my predecessor  with great discourtesy.''   ������-  "Discourtesy? Discourtesy ��������� of what  nature?''  "Oh, 1 am informed that you accused  him of er���������in fact, that you insinuated,  he was untruthful."  "I? Oh, dear me, no! Not at all. The  truth of tho matter, was just this: I had  to characterize his attitude in someway.  Now, you see, I couldn't speak of. his  simplicity, because it would not be ex-  ... actly complimentary. Of course"'.I  couldn't speak of his' multiplicity, because that wouldn't be true, you know.  So naturally I had to call it duplicity,  don't you see? It really was forced upon  me,"ypri understand."  The Booming of Cannon at Daylight Gave  the News tn Washington.  Most people were sleeping soundly in  their beds wheu, at daylight on the rainy  morning of April 10, 1S.5, a great boom  startled the misty air of Washington,  shaking the very earth, and breaking the  windows of houses about Lafayette  square, and moving the inhabitants of  that aristocratic locality t.o say once  more that they would be glad when Union victories were done witli or should  bo celebrated elsewhere. Boom! boom!  went theguus, until 500 were fired. A  few people got tip in the chill twilight  of tho morning and raced about in the  mud to learn what the good news might  be, while others formed a procession aud  resumed . their parades���������no dampness,  no fatigue, being sufficient to depress  their ardor.  But many placidly lay abed, well  knowing that only ono military event  coulde.iu.se all this mighty pother in tho  air of Washington, and if their nap in  tho gray dawn was disturbed with  dreams of guns and of terms of armies  surrendered to Grant by Leo they awoko  later to ruad of these in tho daily papers,  for this was Secretary Stanton's way of  telling tho peoplo that the Army of  Northern Virginia had at last laid down  its arms, and that peace had come again.  But the groat news had really reached  Washington thc night before (Palm Sunday), and a few newspaper meu aud  ethers of late habits, who wore up  through tho darkness and the dampuess  of those memorablo hours, had sent the  glad tidings all over the Union from  Maine to California and had then unbent themselves in a private and exclusive jollification. When the capital was  broad awake and had takeu in tho full  value of the news, the fever heat that  had fired the city ou the day after the  fall of Richmond did not return. Popu7  lar feeling had culminated then, und  after that great event there was nothing  that could surprise us, not eveu if Jeff  Davis himself had come to Washington  to surrender.  The streets were shockingly muddy,  but were all alive with people singing  and cheering, carrying flags and saluting everybody, hungering and thirsting  for speeches. General Butler was called  out, among others, and he made a speech  full of surprising liberality and generosity toward the enemy. The departments gave another holiday to their  clerks, so did many business firms, and  the treasury employees assembled in the  great corridor of their building and sang  "Old Hundred" with thrilling, even  tear compelling, effect. Then they  marched iu a body across the grounds to  the White House, where the president  was at breakfast, and serenaded him  with "The Star Spangled Banner."���������  Noah Brooks in Century.  American Indigo.  Indigo for exportation was brought  into Charleston in wagons, and the  owners received the proceeds in the form  of Spanish silver coin, which composed  almost the entire currency before the  bank of the state' was established in  1813. It was a clumsy and inconvenient  medium of exchange for large amounts.  We read that "the merchants of. North  Carolina and other distant points used  to carry tho money in boxes fitting under the seats of the sulkies iu which they  traveled, so as to be taken out at night  and put back iu the morning. "  Thc indigo itself was often used directly as a medium of purchase for other  commodities. General Harrington at one  time sent' three four horse wagon loads  of indigo to Virginia, buyiug . in exchange from 15 to 20 negroes. An interesting illustration of this use of indigo  is connected with General Francis Marion. This incident occurred in 1788,  just after the battlo of Hobkirk Hill. A'  nephew of General Marion was to be  sent to school-in-Philadelphia,-audwas  accordingly fitted out with a wagonload  of indigo, which was to pay for his tuition and'other school expenses. As the  British then held possession, General  Marion wroto to Lord Balfour, ,.in command in Charleston, asking a permit  for the boy to pass through the British  lines. General Marion's letter was sent  by Balfour to Rawdon, and was afterward countersigned by Cornwallis. The  ���������youth with "his wagonload of indigo was  allowed to proceed by the Charlotte route  toward Philadelphia, but unfortunately  ho died before reaching his destination.  ���������Science Monthly.

It is said that no ono who ever saw  Balow at the conductor's desk, controlling an orchestra as if it were a single  instrument ou which ho himself was  playing, could ever forget tlie influence  of.- his wonderful personality. A Beethoven symphony conducted by Bulqw  was a revelation. His manner of conducting was inimitable. With him everything was impulse, every movement  a personality���������the expression of a delicate sensibility, and it was this-that  made the communication of his purposes  to the orchestra so effective.   ,.  No one understood how to extract  such a brilliance, such a-fullness, from  his orchestra as Bulow did.. The clear-,  ness and absolute precision of his rhy thra.  were unsurpassed. His epigram, "In  the beginning there was rhythm," is  notorious. No one could make his orchestra speak with such passion. And  the same works played the next day under another conductor were, ho longer  the same thiugs that they had been under the magic wand of the great leader.  *���������Musical Courier. ���������  M.

With their guidance  investments in this class of property  may be fearlessly made. On the other  hand, hydraulic mining, which means  washing banks of gravel and snrid for  the gold that is in them, is a highly  precarious occupation, and offers no  opportunity for investment to people  in distant countries except to those  born gamblers who are content to have  a fling at the wildest speculations.  Profitless .schemes are sure lo be  floated in this country to the great  loss of distant shareholders. But when  bewailing their misfortunes let not  these people turn and rend the scene of  their troubles. Rather let them blame  their own disregard of warnings, their  own blind rushing into things they  knew nothing about, and their feverish  desire to reap the golden harvest  without even enquiring if the crop had  ever been sown,  BRITISH CAPITAL.  A rumor was in circulation during  the early part of the week to the eff< nt  that the Slocan Star had been bond, d  on behalf of-the "ROTiisciiiLnsfor f$i,-  ���������300.000. - Me; Byron Whitk. the  principal owner of the mine, was in  town on Saturday and knew nothiug  about the matter then. In fact he  disclaimed any- idea of selling to anyone. He could not' have reached  Three Forks before Monday evening,  and as the rumor was in circulati.,n  here on Tuesday, the deal, if it Wns  made, took a very short time. Tiie  report as it stood was probably not,  true. But at tbe same time there was  a good foundation for it. There are .n  the Kootenay now two gentlemen,  Messrs. L. Norman and J. II.  Clemes. The former is the financi.il  adviser to a very influential and  wealthy syndicate in London. The  latter is one of the leading mining  engineers of the world, and he is employed to examine properties on their  behalf. At the present time of writing  we.believe it is premature to say that  any deal has been made, but at the  same time these gentlemen have come  here to buy; they have the money .-t  their backs, and it is to be presumed'  that the owners of the Slocan Star i"'  anyone else will sell their property if  tbey Hud somebody who "wants it  worse" than tbey do .themselves.  There is also a syndicne, very i:i-  Huential and wealthy, which appears  to be known as the Lillooet, Fraser  River and Cariboo Gold Fields Co.,  Limited, formed, for the purpose of  acquiring mining properties in this  Province. As this Company is continually associated with the name of a  certain M.J.. it is not likely that they  will do business in this section.

There appears to-be no.doubt that  British Columbia is now beginning to  attract a very great deal of attention  in London, indeed it may be said to be  beginning to vie with South Africa.

Sept 7, 1805.  SOME ADVICE.  Six month, ago we wiote an article  entitled "An Unjust Inference." We  complained that.the London Mining  World in objecting to a company of  which the prospectus was before the  British public^ "crabbed" all B. C.  mining investments. We pointed out  then that in every mining country  there were "wild cats" and that Cak-  lyle's definition of mankind, "mostly  fools" still holds good. It is not likely  that to day "wild cats" will cease.to  exist, that the world has grown suddenly wise, or that the dishonest  broker will rest from his occupation  of inducing the latter to chuck, its  golden sovereigns' down the capacious  shafts of the former. Nor is it likely  that newspaper, warnings will have  any more,effect^_.on:.^he. public now  than they ever did.  Nevertheless it is bur duty to warn  ��������� people and we call on our more power-  : ful metropolitan brethren to back us  upi The great wave of European capital has at last reached British Columbia and the clang of its coin on our  shores is ringing loudly. As we have  often pointed out,* there is ample op-,  portunity for genuine investment, but  unfortunately there is also ample  opportunity for swindling.-. If the  public ..will.'only be guided.by men  whose names are a household word  for uprightness and honesty they can  not come to much g-ief, but .if they  listen to a man who conies from an  unknown place and has uo recommendations of any weight whatever,  they are liable to lose their money.  Quartz and ore mining have been reduced practically to regular business  lines in which there is little risk and  the element of speculation _is, almost  eliminated for men who* understand  In all parts of the British Colonial  J.uipiie this cry has been raised and iu  the more advanced colonies systems  have been introduced guarding the  rights of the bona fide settler against  the mere speculator. In the olden days  in Australia and New Zealand, enormous areas of land often as big as a  European kingdom were taken up at  nominal prices and held by one man  to his great profit and to the exclusion  of the poorer settler who came after:  wards and could find no place to make  a home for himself. The evils of this  system have became so apparent and  so detrimental to the commercial advantages of any colony or province  that drastic measures have been  adopted to remedy the trouble.        "  It is a pity that the government of  British  Columbia  in   laying  out  its  townsites did not. take advantage of  thu experience it could have gained by  looking across the water.    This carelessness  has now  a   curious'   result.  When certain townsites which we all  know of, weie originally laid off, large  blocks of lots were taken up by speculators.   Little booms set in and a few  lots were dispoc ed of at fancy prices,  but today many men find themselves  with considerable quantities of lots on  their hands which are  not worth the  price at which they bought them and  upon which they are reluctant to pay  up the balance of their purchase money  now due.   On the other hand many  bona fide settlers are coining into these  towns but find that they cannot get  lots to build on.   The Government-is  not selling any that it has left, and if  a speculator is approached he is apt to  ask a very high figure.   This is not as  it should be.   The Government should  have taken precautions at the first to  protect the settler.    Fortunately it is  not too late to do so now.   Speculators  who hold vacant lots,   should   be   required either to pay up the balance of  purchase money due   on thero,  or to  abandon them to the government,  receiving back any amounts that   may  have been paid.   The latter course we  think is the more preferable.   When  bona fide settlers have  built on their  lots, then arrears of payment might be  written off  allowing  them   a Crown  grant of the lot at a price which was  a fair, one at the time they bought it.  lb t he future lots should be sold with  strict building conditions, at the lowest possible price.   No person should  be allowed to purchase more than a  _verj*__JiKn^teJ_mjyibe^  fer should be allowed for say five years  at least, without special permission being obtained from the Chief Commissioner of Lands and Works'.   Regulations guarding the giving of this permission could easily be framed.       ���������"*  '  Under such conditions as these our  towns  would soon grow up and be  filled with a happy population of people all dwelling on their own land.

Abundant Use .of Sweets Is Very Ilad.  Strong Acids on Cereal Foods Objectionable���������Shun Ices and Cold Water.  The necessity of carefully chewing the  food is popularly considered to rest upon  tho "advisability of separating it into  small portions, so tliat when it reaches  the stomach it may bo better acted  upon by the gastric juico. But important a. this is, tliero is another reason���������  namely, tho necessity of mixing the food  well with the saliva, which has its own  part to play in the digestive organs. It  ia just as necessary therefore to chow  foods that are already minced or pulverized as those that require separation  with tho teeth, and failure to dosoprop-  ��������� erly results in indigestion.   In Modern  ��������� Medicine an interesting article deals  with the evils resulting from imperfect  mastication, which it calls "Salivary  Indigestion. "  At the outset our attention is called  to tho fact that accurate knowledge on  ��������� the subject was for a- time actually obscured by an important .discovery.  Leuchs,-about 60 years ago, found that  saliva converts starch into sugar.   To  . this /act indeed its value is due, since  the. gastric juico will not digest starch  directly. But since the saliva will not  act upon starch thus when rendered  acid it was at once concluded that it  could have no useful digestive qualities,  since the food remained such a short  time in the mouth and the gastric juice  of the stomach is powerfully acid. Recent investigations have shown, how-  - ���������' ever, - that at the beginning of digestion  the fluid contains no free acid, and that  . the digestive power of saliva goes on increasing till - its alkaline qualities are  actually neutralized. Hence it has half  an hour or so to act���������ample time for its  purpose. The article goes on to say:  ��������� "Daring the'half or three-quarters of  an hour which intervenes ��������� between the  swallowing of the food and the production of a degree of acidity sufficient to  prevent the action upon the starch  . through the appearance of free hydrochloric acid very active conversion of  starch is taking place. If the food has  been thoroughly masticated, so that it  is broken up into fine particles, thus also  insuring an, admixture of an abundant  quantity of saliva, the great share of the  starch elements of the food will be rendered soluble by conversion into dextrin, even if not completely converted  into sugar, thus setting free the nitrogenous elements which may be acted  . upon by the gastric juice in their turn.  . .."It must not be forgotten also that  the saliva is the most active peptogen���������  - that.is, the.presence of saliva in the  'stomach, in - connection with the food,  ftitnnlates glandular activity on the parti  of the stomach, whereby an active and  ,' Abundant'supply of gastric juice is prcf-'  duced.  ,,.    " Another cause of salivary indigestion  . which we should mention is the abundant use - of sweets.   In order that the  saliva shall exercise its properties ef-  . flciently it is necessary that it should  act in a suitable medium.   A tempera-  ' tore of 100 degrees and an alkaline or  neutral reaction are necessary for prompt  and vigorous action on the part of the  saliva upon the farinaceous elements of  food. A low temperature hinders this  action and: acidity stops it altogether.  ��������� The presence of a large amount of sugar  also hinders the action of the saliva.  '"Itis thus evident that the copious  drinking of cold water, or the taking of  iced foods in connection with meals, is  a means of producing salivary indiges-  tion.. The free use of strong acids, such  as vinegar, in connection with cereal  _._foods,_is_equally_objectionable.__Nothing-  couldbe more absurd than-the combina-  ��������� tion of strong acids with vegetable elements, as in pickles.   This is probably  . the reason why so many persons find  ��������� themselves ��������� unable to use ��������� acid ,. fruits  without fermentation. The acidity may  be sufficient to neutralize the action of  the saliva upon the starch.  ' "Evidently it-is* not only psychologically absurd to add sugar to.farinaceous  foods, since the starch, which composes  one-half the weight of these foods, is all  converted into sugar in the process of  digestion; but the.practice is also highly  injurious, since it prevents the normal  action of tlio saliva upon the starch. In  this'way sugar, preserves, sweet sauces,  confectionery, ice cream, cakes and oth-  .er .sweets aro in tho highestdegree con-  *  ducivo to. salivary indigestion. Tho consequences of salivary indigestion* are:  /Acid fermentations, heartburn, stomach  s'and   intestinal- colic,   dilation  of  the  stomach, catarrh  of tho stomach  and  many evil effects arising from these cou-  .   ditious. -     '     -    .  ��������� "The remedy for salivary indigestion  consists in' prohibiting sweets, ices and  soft foods and requiring patients to  masticate thoroughly every particle of  food swallowed. In many cases it is well  ' to aid the. process of salivary digestion  by exposing tho. cereal food substances  .-.-��������� tp the prolonged action of heat, thereby  converting the starch into dextrin, rendering it more readily soluble, and hence  more "readily acted' upon by tho saliva.  .Granola and swieback are invaluable articles of food for use in cases of this .sort.  The malt preparations are useful as palliatives iu some cases, but it should be  remembered that it is wrong to become  dependent upon any artificial digestive  agent."  '    ' -'   Turn About.  - "What are you so much worried about  the future of the country for?*'asked Mr.  -.  Smigglcs.    "Haven't you got enough to  ',. -bother you right hero at home?".    -  "Yes, John," she answered, "but I  thought that after 25  years of  married  ��������� life it was about- timo for me to take nay  - turn at saving the country, while you  - did -some of -the speculating on where  the kindling and grocery money was  coming from."���������Washington Star.
