Have Ltnii; lloi'ii a Terror of Uio Country,
(imi-grii 11 iiii Murder and Attempted
Murder.��� Arrested Wlieu  the Treaty
Money Wns IU'Iiik Paid.
Ottawa, July 32.���The Moses broth-
eriXof tho Pio bund of Indians, whoso
arrest hns taken place at Heron bay
on a chargo of murder, bavo boon the
subject* of correspondence between J.
F. Hodtler, Indian agent at Port*
Arthur, and the department of Indian
affairs. For a long time these desperadoes havo boon terrorizing the pooplo of the Pic reservation and that
neighborhood, but last April upon returning from their animal winter hunt
thoy settled down, and Constable Mos-
seau of tho Pic, reserve reported to the
Indian agent at Port- Arthur that they
were working industriously and lead
ing un-objectionablo lives.
Thoy did not, liowovor, deserve the
good opinion of the constable, for ou
Juno 17 last Louis Moses fired four
shots at- John Desmoulin and Joseph
Goodchild, who with thoir wives woro
on a timber raft about* throo or four
hundred yards distant, at tho junction
of Black and Pio rivers. The bullets
wont dangerously near the mark, 0110
lodging in the skiff tied to the raft.
Desmoulin and Goodchild immediately
landed and asked Moses what ho meant
by shooting at them. His explanation
was that the shooting was   accidental.
I It is believod that the real explanation
is that it was a murderous attack. Anionic and Mohawk Moses   took   a  boy
' uamed Leiuay in a sailboal wiih them.
i Lemay was never beard of afterwards.
I Ho was said to have been drowned,
but it was subsequently  reported  that
j ho bad boon saved and taken to land
by Antoine and Mohawk, and lhat
fearing lo bring him back to the re-
servo again one of the Moses brothers,
said to lie Louis Moses, killed him last
Joseph (toodohild was understood to
know something of the oirouintanees
of tho crime, and Mossea believes that
Louis tried to kill Goodchild.
The dangerous character of these Indians is shown by the suggestion of
Hodder to tlio department a month ago
that it would bo woll to arrest the four
brothers when the bounty was paid, for
if thoy wore not all arrested Ihose who
had acted in the matter would probably be jeopardized, meaning probably
that (he members of   the   family   who
1 wore allowed to remain at largo
would seek the lirst opportunity of
avenging those of tlieir brothers who
had been taken intn custody. The
opinion was also expressed that a groat
deal of evidence would bo given that
otherwise   would   not   be   available if
iho men were not in jail, the inference being that as long as they wero at
largo people would lie afraid to toll
what, they knew.
How lhe German Minister Manages
Matters at Korea.
News comes froni Seoul that on tho
night of the 29th ult. the Gorman
minister requested the Korean minister for foreign affairs to visit him at
the legation, and upon Mr. Yuki-
Kwan acceding to tho request the German minister administered to bim a
sound thrashing bocauso the unfortunate minister had, doubtless acting upon
instructions, refused certain mining
privileges to Germans in tho gold districts of Kingjo. The Korean government is said to bo greatly excited, and
small wonder.���Victoria Times.

if possible to save it and add it to tho

Important. Eluiisnn Arrives at WhmIi-
Washington, July 22.���There were,
several events of interest if not of importance at the war and navy departments today. Gonoral Anderson at
Oavite sent a message saying that
Aguinaldo had declared a dictatorship
and martial law ovor tlio Philippines.
This gavo the cabinet food for consideration at their rogular mooting today. Thero was no disposition to force
any issue with tho iusurgent'chiof at
this moment, but it is pretty well understood that he will not be allowed to
commit the United States government
in tho future treatment of the Philippine question. Tho visit of tho German ambassador to the president and
to the secretary of state was a basis for
a belief that he called 10 mako representation ou Ilia* subject, and perhaps
as well ou the question of peace as
affected by the program laid down by
Watson's projected v,*;. .*������ in Kv.ropean

uiuuicative, so that if -"./iln"" of importance passed during the meeting be-
tween the president and Dr. Yon
Holtenbou it probably wil' bo revealed
only inthe shape of action later on.
lt would not bo surprising if it should
develop that strong Euoprean influences
arc. being brought to bear fo dissuade
the navy department from dispatching
Watson's (loot to Kurope. But so far
they appear lo have been ineffectual,
for it is officially slated that tho departure of the squadron is only delayed, not abandoned.
Although General Miles reported by
cable today from Mole St. Nicholas,
Hayti, lhat he was "moving along
well" with Ihe lirst detachment of the
military expedition against Porto
Rico, tho body of his despatch gave
rise at the. lirst to the apprehension
that, like General Shafter at Santiago,
General Miles was threatened with a
costly delay in lauding his expedition
owing to the absence of lighters and
tugs. It. was said at the war department later on that some of ihose lighters wero already on their way from
New Orleans and New York, and that
no sensible delay would arise on that
score. It* appears from General Miles'
first, statement relative to Colonel
Helckor, that he was not acquainted
for tho necessity for that officer's presence, in Washington in order to provide
for the speedy transportation to Spain
of the troops surrendered at* Santiago.
Tho brief roport from Admiral Sampson, declaring tho success of tho ex
pedition to Nipi is really of moro importance than appears ou Uio surface.
The bay of Nipi lies on the. north
coasi of Cuba, directly across the
island from Santiago. It is proposed
to establish a base there which will
save at least two days in getting supplies into Cuba as compared with tho
Santiago route. It will also form a
good point for operation against Holquin, and should it develop unfortunately that a restraining hand must bo
laid on tho Cubans themselves, Nipi is
in connection with Santiago, and this
would allow an effective means of
doing this. The war department has
not   yot   been   informed   of     General
Shelter's Cuban allies quiting tho lines
for tho reason sent out in the printed
letter by General Garcia, but it is
soarcely doubted that such is the case.
Tho last and most agreeable, event of
the day was the arrival of Lieutenant
Hobson of Merrimao lame. He arrived at tho station unexpectedly and
got through the train shed when someone spied him and raised a shout.
The cry of "Hobson" rang out* and
tho cry closed about him until ho was
rescued and escorted to his carriage.
A largo crowd gathered about the doorway of the secretary of tho navy's
office and gave him a hearty welcome.
Secretary Long seized him with both
hands, saying, " Lieutenant, 1 am
glad, very glad to seo yon.'' Ho camo
to Washington under orders from Admiral Sampson to acquaint Secretary
Long with the condition of the Spanish war vessel Cristobal  Colon   and to
The Argonauts of Toronto Loso tho

Philadelphia, July 22.��� The 26th annual regatta of tho Now York amati ur
oarsmen opened here today. Races
were over a course on the Schuylkill

of tho Russian court are greatly upset
at tho fact that tho czarina has forbidden cigarette smoking in hor presence. The despatch adds that the

Sir James Returns From a Successful
Trip to London.
London, July 22.���Sir James Winter, tho premier of Newfoundland, returns to America on August (I by the
steamer Siberian, having completed
the mission which brought him to this
country. It is understood that the
British colonial offico has agreed that
Newfoundland should bo directly
represented at tho coming conference
on American-Canadian affairs, and tho
Newfoundland premier himself will
bo the commssisioner from tho colony.
Sir James Winter also had a satisfactory
conference, with tho first lord of tho
admiralty, Mr. George J. Gosehen, in
regard to establishing a naval reserve
corps in Newfoundland. Tho British
government has not reached a decision
on tho French shore and other questions.
The Statement of Spanish Minister of
Public Works Is the Reason.
Now York, July 22.���Tho Evening
Post financial cable dated London, July
: The statement by tho Spanish
minister of public works concerning
tho peace prospects together with good
railway dividends favorably affected all

�� The prospectus of Iho'; Paciiic Northwest Mining Corporal ion, Limited,
has been published in tbo issue of thc
yd inst. of the Financial News. The
promoter.-', of this company seem to bo
sanguine to a degree remarkable even
among company promoters. The prospectus states that, the company has acquired properties, one in Montana,
three in British Columbia and three
near Sunrise City, Alaska���four of the
properties being placer propositions on
which a hydraulic plant will he necessary. Tho prospectus makes no mention of an)' dividends ever having been
paid by any of the properties and no
details of any development work are
given, so it may bo reasonably concluded that all the properties are still
in tho prospect stage, and yot tbe prospectus states that from information
considered trust wort by share holders
may safely rely on a not; profit of ��97,-
500 sterling at the end of tho first year
as a rosult of the working of the three
quartz mines alone,
Ono of theso is tho Black Cock, near
Ymir. The Black Clock was located by
Alexander Audet and A. Julian, and
was recently sold by thorn to this company for, it is stated, $75,000. Wo
have no personal knowledge of tbe
property, liut it has the reputation of
being a promising prospect, with a
certain amount of work done, and good
assays are said to have been obtained
from it. This is the foundation of the
statement that the Black Cock will at
the end of tho year yield a not profit
of ��37,500, or about $177,500, Tho
owners, who presumably know their
own property, will be probably surprised to lind that a conservative estimate of a year's profits will be more
than twice as much as what they got
for the claim.
Tho wild statements in the prospectus are sufficient in themselves tn
condemn it, and the English investing
public should know enough by this
timo to read between Ibe lines and
light shy of a company who pays $630,-
000 for unproved mining properties.

The Idaho mine, near Now Denver,
has shipped linos tons of ore during the
past year.
A shipment of 1000 tons of ore is
being made from the Enterprise mino,
in the Slocan, to the Omaha smelter.
A strike of $100 ore, of which there
is five feet in sight, has been made in
the Nelson-Poorman mine. The slriko
was made in lhe 000-foot tunnel,
where the ledge was cut   at a depth of
000 feet.
A big strike has been   made by Mai- *
colm   Matheson   ou   (he Copper Chief, 1
near Trout Lake   City.    A  section   of
the ledge has been uncovered and some
line specimeuts of ore have been taken

The   Whitewater    mines,    Limited, j
have    taken   a   working bund   on   the
Slocau Boy, which is owned largely by 1
Spokano parties.    The   price is said to
be $40,000.    Work on the property will j
begin at once.
During the first six   months of   this
year the  Lc Roi mine shipped  Iiii,970 j

The Golden and Port Steele Development company are going to do extensive development work on Iheir valuable mineral claims at the head of
Toby creek. A party goes np thero
next week lo commence operations.
Tho Swansea mineral claim, in
Windermere mining division, belonging to Bon Abel, Joe Lake, Sam
Brewer and G. S. McCarvor, has beon
bonded to F. A. Mulholland of Rossland, for ifoOOO. Tho lirst payment is
duo, on July 29.
Manager McCluro reports that tho
work of sinking the shaft on the
Flossie R. will be discontinued, and
bids will soon be asked for the sinking
of a 500-foot tunnel on this property.
Thero are 11 distinct* leads on the
Flossie R, which also extend across
the entire length of the Bimetallic and
King Solomon claims, and it is thought*
a 500-foot tunnel would tap all these
leads. The wagon road has been completed about half way from the mine
to the railway. Work will probably
commence on this tunnel within a fow
weeks. The Flossie R. has had, considering tho amount of development
work dono, tho most wonderful showing of any property in the Ymir

Of place to suggest that the new judge
���ibould be required to reside at Nelson.
We are reliably informed that every

court the travelling and hotel expenses
mount up to .between ��400 nnd $600,
making a total expense to the government of nearly $8000 annually.
Wero a judge of the supreme court to
be appointed to reside here permanently, all members of the legal profes-

���would be at once an economy for the
government and a convenience to barristers and public alike.
