The Sultan's Bequest to ba Allowed to Keep
Soldiers in the Island Kot Granted
by the Admirals
Candia, Crete, Oot. 1!!���The  foreign
admirals   bavo   eonimiiuicated    with
their respective  governments  protesting against the Porte's demand that it
be allowed   to  retain   threo   fortified
places  in   the  island, with  garrisons
sufficient   to   safeguard   tbe   Mohammedans and protect   tho  Turkish flag.
; The   admirals   say   that     tho   Sultan
j should not  bo   allowed   to    maintain
troops in Crete, and tbey ptpVf&at   tlie
Turkish troups be   compelled   to completely evacuate   the   island.    The admirals have   decided   not to allow Os-
[iiian Pasha and Sabit Pasha, who have
' heen ordered to   proceed to Crete from
Turkey, to   superintend   the embarka-
I, tion of the   troops,    as tlieir   presence
| would only   complicate   the  sitnatiou

and at once entered upon the duties of
his office.
Mr. Forget is popular in tho Territories and his long residence here
specially qualifies him for the office to
which   be has been appointed.
The now governor is a native of
Quebec, and is lil years of age. On
the organization of a separate government for tho Territories in 1871 he
was appointed clerk of the council and
private secretary to the lieutenant-
governor, Hon. David Laird. Later
ho bocame clerk of the assembly, wben
the capital was removed from Battle-
ford to Regina. In 1888, he was appointed assistant Indian commissioner
aud succeeded Hayter Reed as Indian
commissioner in 1895. About 18
months ago the head offices of the Indian department were removed to
Winnipeg in wliich city Mr. Forget
has siuco resided. His appoinutment
as lieutenant-governor meets with
general approval throughout the Territories. During his administration
of the Indian affairs of the North
West, the native tribes bavo made
great progress towards civilization.
His successor as Indian commissioner
is the Hon. David Laird, the former
lieutenant-governor to whom Mr.
Forget acted as secretary back in the
seventies.

Macraio Martine. one of the most
prominent citizens of San Salvador
city. Furthermore under direction
of General Villiegas, five persons were
shot in San Pedro, while at Sau Miguel many were executed by General
Villovancio. It appears also that the
editor of El Latijo, journal of Salvador, incurred the displeasure.of the
government, owing to the publication
of several articles in |his journal, in
defence of certain students. For his
offence he was publicly whipped, as
also was the judge who rendered a decision in favor of the students.

The   Republic   Will   Soon   Have  the
Third Strongest Fleet on the Seas.
Washington, Oct. 18.��� The remarkable rapidity with wliich tbe naval
power of the United States is being increased at the preseut time may be
realized wheu it is stated that 55 war
vessels are now under contract* for the
government, and that theii aggregate
tonnage far exceeds that of the vessels
building at any one time in the civil
war. This vast construction programme has been authorized gradually by congress, until the vessels soon
to bo completed will place the United
States third in rank among sea powers. Iu addition to the enormous
fleet, including auxiliaries, actually iu
commission at the present time, 20
vessels aro iu various stages of readiness and the ship builders are hurriedly gathering the material for
35 others. Of the 55 vessels^ eight are
first class heavily armored sea going
battleships, 38 are torpedo boats, four
aro monitors and one is a powerful
cruiser.
TURBINE PROPELLORS ORDERED
Kingston, Jamaica, Oct. 13.���Several moro families from Anotta Bay
and the adjacent districts of St. May
and Portland have arrivod at Kingston and Port Antonio, owing to the
growing apprehension of serious negro disturbances. In response to the
urgent appeals of the resident landed
proprietors, storekeepers and others,
who express doubt in the power of the
civil authorities to maintain order by
means of the native black police, the
government despatched 400 white
troops wih maxim guns to the disturbed district last night.
The colonial secretary in an interview this morning,expressed the opinion that no trouble need he expected
from the Maroons, all the apprehensions pointing, he added, to the native
Jamaica negroes. But, he continued,
the latter will surely not attempt rioting in the face of the display of
force now made. Public sentiment is
not so confident and tho excitement
is spreading throughout the eastern
parishes and this feeling is not allayed by the fact that the Maroons claim
to be ready to support the government
according to treaty conditions, for it
is felt tliat tbe loyalty of the Maroons
largely depends on the result of today's trial of their claimb.
THE DUTY OF THE HOUR
Hon. Mr. Asquith on the Fashoda Affair
HE  ECHOES  ROSEBERY
Tho   Cashier  Died  When  Confronted
With His Dishonesty.
Washington , Oct. .18.-Charles G.
Dawes, comptroller of the Currency,
today wired tho cashier of the Tioga
National bank of Oswegu, N. Y.��� of
which Senator T. C. Piatt, is president, to close the- doors of that institution, stating that ho bad placed Mr.
O. E. Van Brooklyn, National bank
examiner, in charge of thc bank. This
action was taken by tbe comptroller
as a result of a recent examination by
Examiner Van Brooklyn, which disclosed a large defalcation on the part
of Eli W. Stone, the assistant cashier
of the bank. Assistant Cashier Stone
died at his homo on Wednesday night,
shortly after he had boeu confronted by
the examiner with the defalcation.
He confessed his guilt to the examiner.
The examiner reports that from as
careful an examination of tlie books of
the bank as he has beeu able to make
there is no evidence whatever of any
complicity ou the part of the other officers of the bank. The defalcation oc-
cured through the manipulation of the
individual deposit ledger by the assistant cashier, who was acting as
receiving teller. It is understood the
speculation of the assistant cashier
covered about 20 years, small amounts
being taken at a time. This was
made possible by Stone acting at times
as both receiving teller and individual
bookkeeper.

GRAND  TRUNK   RAILWAY.
Washington, Oct. 13.���Consul Metcalf, at Newcastle-on-Tyne, sends to
the state department a report that the
builders of the wonderful turbine pro-
pellor Turbiuia, which created such a
sensation at the British naval review
by her extraordinary speed, have begun the construction, for a foreign
government, of two boats of the same
style about 200 feet and with 10,000
horse powor. They were guaranteed
to make at least 35 knots au hour, but
as they are twice the length, six
times the weight and five times the
power of the Turbiuia, the consul says
it will be interesting to see how far
they will exceed her performance of
35 knots.
QUARRELSOME SOLDIERS.
Cincinnati, Ohio, Oct. 13.���A Lexington special to the Times Star says
that the trial of Private Kitchen who
killed Private Edward Nygram, of the
12th New York, on Sunday, was postponed till Saturday because a new-
outrage has stirred up such feeling'thut
violence was feared. Sergeant A.
McLellan, of tho 3rd Kentucky, was
caught after midnight by a party of
12th New York soldiers and so mistreated that he may be injured for
life. This aroused bitter indignation
agninst the New York regiment on
the part of tho Kentucky regiment and
it was deemed unwise to risk an outbreak by proceeding with the trial of
Kitchen. 	
AMERICA CUP RACE.
Liverpool, Oct. 18.���The Liverpool
Post announces that the conditions of
the international raoo for the American cup have been satisfactorily arranged. The races have heen fixed for
dates between October 8 and 12 next

FATAL GAS EXPLOSION.
Tamaqua, Penn., Oct. 18.���Four
men were instantly killed and a dozen
more or less seriously injured by the
explosion of gas today in colliery No.
8, of the Lehigh Coal and Navigation

Satisfactory  Meeting  of   the Holders
at London.
Toronto, Oct. 13.���A special cable to
the Telegram dated Loudon, Oct. 18
says, at a meeting today of the shareholders of tho Grand Trunk railway
of Canada, presldont Sir Charles Rivers Wilson read a report and gave an
account of his visits to Canada. He
said he had found it impossible to
come to any arrangement with the
Canadian Pacific railway, pending a
settlement of the rate war between
the Canadian Pacific and the American
lines, and had offered to refer the
matter to arbitration. Continuing,
president Wilson said the matter rested
there. On the other hand, he was
glad to sav that all the Grand Trunk's
interests in connection with the Central Vermont railroad has been arranged by a satisfactory agreement,
the details of which could not yet be
published, pending the completion
of legal formalities. The outlook the
president said in conclusion was good,
and improving.
Vice President Price spoke of the
excellent condition in which he found
the railroad tracks.
Mr. William Baker struck a discordant note by asking a number of
questions to which curt answers were
given.
The answers, however, satisfied
those present,, at the meeting, which
adopted the report almost unanimously.
FIVE YEARS FOR BELLE ADAMS
She Killed With a  Razor a  Mulatto
With Whom Sho Lived.
Victoria, Oct. 13.���Belle Adams,
the white woman found guilty of manslaughter, in tho killing of her mulatto paramour, Charles Kincaid, was today sentenced by Justice Irving to five
years iu tho penitentiary.
SALVADOR^REIGN OF TERROR.
Political   Offenders   Thore are Cruelly
Dealt With.
San Frnucisco, Oct. 18.���The
steamer City of Panama has arrived
from South American points. The
vessel brings news of tho executions
aud horrible cruelties perpetrated upon
political prisoners in Salvador. Re
ferring to the execution of prisoners.
El Carletou says that at Arminia, a
small city of the republic, Los Veze
a da Izalio, a prominent citizen, was
shot whilo Don Deltin Barrios died
in prison, as the result of cruelties
on the part of General Aravillo. In
the police station Don Venazio Salazar
and Don Jesus Valdes were tied up
by the thumbs and colonels Don Ser
v'ando and Don Virgilio Valencio were
shot. These officers had distinguished
themselves in the army under the
regime of the president. Continuing,
the article in El Clarion asserts that 20
THE STRIKE IN   FRANCE.
The   Railways   are   Guarded  by   the
Military.
Paris, Oct. 18.���In c ...-sequence nf
the committee of the railroad men's
union deciding today in favor of a
general striko and sending instructions to the provincial branches to
cease work, with a reminder of the
secret measures agreed upon at the
railway men's congress for the hindrance of traffic in the event of a strike
the polico this afternon raided the
offices of the committee and seized all
the papers found there. In consequence of a false report that the police intended to close the labor exchange this evening, there was considerable excitement among the strikers, who gathered in large numbers
around the building, remaining until
dispersed by the police.
The troops have been ordered to remain in barracks. Owing to the
threatened strike of railway men the
stations at Grenoble, Arras, Bethune,
Lyons and other points have been occupied by soldiers.
A COMMITTEE   PROPOSED.
Loudon, Oct. 14.���Herbert Heury
Asquith, liberal membor of parliament
for East Fife, and former home
secretary, iu an address to his constituents this evening, spoke of the
situation at Fashoda in a strain similar to Lord Rosebery's declaration
yesterday. Mr. Asquith said it was
the duty of all patriotic Britons and
lovers of peace not* to say a word that
might even seem to impair tho title
of Lord Salisbury's government to act
in the name of a united poople.
WHAT FRANCE WANTS.
London, Oct. 14.���The Paris correspondent of the Time s says: "I understand, ou good authority, that
France expects a commercial post
near the Nile, at the entrance to Bahr
El Chazal, as compensation for the
evacuation df Fashoda."
A BUSINESS PRECAUTION.
Londou, Oct. 14.���Tho rise of the
discount rate of the Bank of England from three to four por ceut today
momentarily scared the markets.
People jumped to the conclusion that
the bank's action was duo to the war
scare and to Lord Rosebery's speech.
Calm reflection however, has shown
that it was ouly a measure of precaution. The persistent buying of gold by
the United States and Germany has
prevented the bank froui securing any
and as a consequence the bank's reserve is lower than it has been siuce
April last, when a four per cent rate
was adopted. According to the best
informed opinion, the rise iu the rate
is purely a financial measure without
any connection with or hint from the
government of the delicate political
situation. Moreover, looking at the
actual large trade indebtedness to the
United States, the bank directors
were apprehensive that low rates
here might facilitate a heavy drain of
gold to America later in tho season,
when the American crops come more
freely into the market.
TENDERED A BANQUET.
Montreal, Oct. 13.���Mayor Prefon-
taine was tendered a complimentary
banquet at the Place Viger hotel, the
Canadian Pacific railway's new hostelry, tonight.
THE BRITISH MAILS.

P. R. and   American Lines.
New York, Oct. 13.���To settle the
differences existing botween the Canadian Pacific aud American railroad
lines, a committee, consisting of two
members each of the various railway
associaitons, including the chairman,
will be appointed at an early date.
This action was taken at a meeting
held at the rooms of the joint traffic
association this afternoon, and if carried out will do much to settle the
many disputes which have done much
of recent years to disturb both passenger and freight rates in all sectious
of the country. The associations
interested in the matter are the joint
traffic association, the trunk line association, tho western passenger lines
association, the eastern passenger association and the New England lines.
It is expected that the committee
will bo announced in a few days and
no timo will be lost in getting down
to work.
TROUBLE IN MOROCCO.
Taugiers, Morocco, Oct. 13.���Serious disturbances bavo taken place in
Tatilet wliich is one of the great subdivisions of the empire, and is used
as a place of banishment for political

SHARP YANKEE TACTICS.
Wheu the former ownors of the Lc
Roi mine announced their intention
of erecting a smelter at Northport,
this paper pointed out that it was uot
in the interests of this section of the
province that this should be done,
and. in order to discourage such undertakings, advocated the imposition
of an export duty upon ore. Had
such a duiy been imposed the smelter
at Northport would not have heen constructed and all smelting work would
have been done on this side of the border to derive any profit from the work.
But the Laurier government refused
to give this measure of protection,
though there was every justification
for it. Telegrams passed between
this province and Ottawa on the matter and there were intimations given
that the government would fully protect the interests of the districts, but
nothing was done on the line indicated
and tbe smelter was erected and has
since been running on Canadian
ores.
That it was mistaken policy to refuse
to impose the export duty and render the oporation of the Northport
smelter unprofitable, if not impossible, is now forced upon public attention in au impressive way. It is
well known that the British America
Corporation purchased the Le Boi
property with the consent of the majority of the stock holders at a figure
which was and is considered a good
price for tho property. After the transaction had been practically completed
the minority stock holders, hoping to
Bqueeze more money out of the corporation, began to throw obstacles in
the way of the consummation of the
transfer and the matter found its way
into the courts and the property passed
into the control of a receiver for the
B. A. C. Subsequent proceedings reversed this decision and the receiver
was removed, the property reverting to
the former management for the Le
Roi stockholders, who have since operated it, sending the ore to the North-
port smelter for treatment.
The British America Corporation
contend that the property is theirs by
right of purchase from the majority
stockholders and tbat the minority
stock holders, who hold some 204,000
shares, must accept that decision, and
their contention seems a good one,
whioh will stand  in a court of law.
Now let us glance at the sharp
Yankee tactics resorted to by the minority stockholders led by a gontleman
known as Col. Turner. They not only
repudiate the sale to the B. A. O.
but actually declare that they are in
negotiation to sell to another English syndicate at a better figure than
was offered by the B. A. O. Furthermore, thoy have been shipping large
quantities of oro to the smelter at
Northport nnd upon this output thoy
are going to declare a dividend from
participation in wliich the Bntish
America Corporation will be excluded.
Thus the corporation, which regards
itself as the purchaser of the proporty,
is not only denied tho profits of its
ore, but is donied any share in the
profits accruing from the treatment of
the ore.
As to another piece of questionable
work in a line with the sharp practice
discernible all through this matter,
the minority stockholders through
their champion, the colonel aforesaid,
point out tbat as no alien cau hold
mining properties in tho state of
Washington and as the Northport
smelter is part of the Le Roi purchase,
and situated in that stato, the B. A.
C. as aliens have no rights whatever
in the property. But, fortunately for
the B. A. O., the mine, the most valuable part of the property, happens  to
be situated in Canada and there should
be enough law in this country to protect its citizens from rapacious foreigners who cnlmly announce their
intention of appealing to the laws of
their own state to abet tbem in their
game of exaction. The B. A. Corporation should let tbe Northport smelter
go and should fight it out over the
mine to the end. The smelter will
be of no use to the colonel and his
friends without the mine, and as the
laws of the state of Washington give
them the smelter, let them have it.
The general imm-ession is that the
B. A. Corporation's price for the property is as good a one as could bo got,
and that the minority stockholders,
finding the corporation committed to
the transaction, are now resorting to
underhand means to exact a higher
figure. It is announced that another
British syndicate has made an offer for
tho property. This seems unlikely.
No British syndicate would, under
tbo circumstances, make such an. offer.
Capitalists are not going about looking for investments in law suits, and
it may be taken for granted that the
story of persons in London l.eing
eager to buy at an advanced figure is
scarcely probable.
This is uot the lirst time English
capitalists have got into complications
with American mino owners, who as
a rule, think it an evidence of
'' smartness,'' to overreach and delude
tho Britisher, but here is a case with
which the Canadian courts will have
to deal aud we have enough faith in
them to know that justice will be
dono in the premises. It may be that
the smelter at Northport was built
where it is to serve the purpose it is
now serving, furnish grounds for violating a contract, which, if honesty
and fair-dealing were held in respect, would be carried out. If this
smelter must go with the mine and
no alien can hold mining property in
Washington, then no British or other
foreign syndicate could get possession
of the property. But as we understand the law of Washington state,
while it prevents any alien from locating or staking a mining property iu
that state, there is nothing to prevent
a foreigner from acquiring a property by purchaso. Evidently the minority shareholders are making matters
unpleasant for the B. A. C. people in
the belief that they will be worried
into acceptance of their offer, *but
Britishers have learned a point or two
about mining transactions aud they
are not so docile as they used to be in
iho hands of the schemer.
Hon. Mr. Mackintosh has the sympathy of the public in tho trying
position in which these complications, for which be is in no way responsible, bave placed him.
It is well that Emperor William
has decided not to visit Egypt just at
present. To keep their eye on Monsieur Marchand gives the British all
they wish to attend to  just  now, aud

our new premises before unloading, thereby causing a little delay on the part
of filling orders. However, we arc pleased to say that the goods are all in our
warehouse now and next week we will have thein on our shelves, disposable
at the same low prices as have always prevailed here and brought our name so
prominently before the careful buyer.
To the Private Families
We would say that our stock will be the finest and most complete in B. C. in the line of Fancy Groceries, Biscuits, Bottled
and Canned Goods.
To Close Buying Mining Camps
We would say that our stock is larger than ever in our line.
See our warerooms. A glance over this department will convince you that we are your money saver. Our prices are so
that we defy competition where full weight and honest measure
is considered.   Call and get acquainted with us anyhow.

Development Work on Silver Mountain
Near New Denver.
A great deal of exploration aud development work has been done recently on Silver mountain near New
Denver, and with the most encouraging results. For some years the Oali
fomia aud the Mountain Chief have
alone attracted attention on the north
western slope of tho mountain, though
there aro well known properties on the
eastern Rlope such as the Alamo and
Idaho. All this summer the owners
of properties adjoining the California
and Mountain Chief have been at work
ground sluicing and digging trenches.
There was a great deal of wash to
work through but tho labor expended
has been rewarded by several import
ant strikes. On the Marion, owned
by Geo. Alexander, J. Merino and
Angus Mclnnes, two parrallel leads
carrying shippiug ore have been traced
across the property for several hundred
feet.
On the Mowieh, belonging to N.
Gethiug, G. Aylard and Con Fielding,
seven inches of galena has been uncovered.
On tlie Eclipse, four meu are employed in driving an 80 foot tunnel to
tap" the lead. The tunnel iB already
in 50 feet. H. T. Bragdon, owner of
the adjoining property, the Stella, has
a bond on the Eclipse.
All those properties, and many
others in the neighborhood, will be
worked all the winter, and cabins are
being put up to accommodate the
men. Altogether thore is considerable
activity in this section of the Slocan
mining division.

It is reported that the difficulties
in connection with tho well known
Arlington mine located on Springer
oreek, about seven miles from Slocau
City will shortly bo adjusted and that
the"property will be placed on the list
of steady shippers. About a year ago
a mortgage for $ 14,000 was placed on
tho property for the purpose of paying
off old indebtedness aud to further
develop the property. During last
winter a force of men were kept at
work but during the past Bummer
only a sufficient number were retained
to keep tho mine clear of water. The
mortgage which is said to be hold bv

be resumed at the mine.

r 4. THE MINER   FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14,  1898.
A BUSY
Ymir, the Centre of a Rich
District.
MINES   SOON  TO  SHIP
The Town Beautifully Situated and Well
Supplied With all Line3 of Eusiness.
ThePeop^ Confident'
The town of Ymir is situated ou
{he Nelson & Fort Sheppard branch of
the Spokane Falls & Northern railway, 18 miles from Nelson. The Salmon river flows through the town and
is joined within the townsite hy
Quartz creek and Wild Horso creek
flowing in from opposite directions.
It is the centre of a rich gold bearing
helt extending 20 miles from north to
south and 15 miles from east to west.
Up to a oouple of years ago but little was known of the rich district although the mineral deposits began to
be talked of during tho two previous
years and hardy prospectors hart penetrated the forest recesses along the
creeks in the vicinity aud blazed trails
and tracks along the mountain sides
as a means of communication with
one another When the Nelson & Fort
Sheppard railway was being built n
water tank was erected at tho mouth
of Quartz creek, which became a landmark for the surrounding couutry and
was the objective point for tho prospectors in search of mineral wealth
which lay hiddeu in the surrounding
hills. A small hamlet known as Quartz
Greek sprang up at the water tank,
and in the spring of 1897 the railway company recognizing the importance ot the place had the towusite of
Ymir surveyed aud commenced to sell
lots. For a couple of months lots sold
rapidly even when covered with heavy
green timber and the place speedily
took on the appearance of a modern
town. Substantial well built hotels
and business blocks sprang up and in
a short time nearly every liue of business was well represented.
The town itself presents a very pleasing appearance. Surrounded on all
sideB by hills mostly covered by green
timber, it nestles iu the valley of tlio
swift flowing Salmon river, which in
the summer is well stocked with trout,
furnishing rare sport for the ingler.
At the pn sent timo lhe population
of the town is iu tho neighborhood of
1000 which is constantly increasing
nnd there is scarcely a vacant building to be seen There are eight hotels
some of wliich would be a credit to
places of three times the size of
Ymir. Tbere are four general stores,
three barber shops, a drug storo, book
store where all tho latest magazines
and newspapers are kept, a brunch of
the Merchants' Bauk of Halifax, a
weekly newspaper, Methodist and
Presbyterian churches, an excellent
public school with 40 pupils in daily
attendance and presided over by an
experienced and successful teacher, a
doctor, lawyer, mining brokers' offices
aud other places of business. A large
sawmill supplied with timber from
the adjacent hill sides furnishes the
mines of the vicinity with lumber and
gives employment to a considerable
number of men,.
For a western mining cantp Ymir is
noted for its orderly character. Provincial Constable W. C. Forrester looks
after the peace of the camp, and it is
needless to say that arrests aro few aud
far between, while A. B. Buckworth,
J. P., dispenses justice in an impartial manner. The weekly newspaper,
the Ymir Miner, has recoutly changed
hands having been purchased by A.
L. Knox, a newspaper man from South
Africa, and is well edited and well
patronized by the local business men.
The future prospertiy of the town,
of course, depends entirely upon the
development of the mineral resources
of the district, but sufficient work has
been done on a numbor of tho properties to demonstrate their richness and
give the people confidence in their future. Within a short distance of the
town are such well known properties as
theYmir, Porto Rico, Dundee, Tamarac, Bullion, Jubileo, Porcupine,
Wren, Blackcock, Wilcox, Tennessee,
Elise and others, which have boen
extensively operated upon by foreign
and local companies with gratifying
results. A fnller accouut of the operations and deovlopment work being
dono on the principal mines will bo
given in future issues of tho Miner.
At the present time tho companies
owning tho Porto Rico, Ymir and
Dundee miues aro pushing forward
as rapidly as possible the erection of
stamp mills aud concentrators at their
respective properties aud in a short
time will be regular shipping mines.
Development work ou theso properties
has disclosed large blocks of high grade
ore, which when shipped and smelter
returns are reoeived will add greatly to
the reputation of the camp. With a
view to attracting the attention of
capitalists to the district, a collection
of 86 samples from properties in the
vicinity was collected and sent to the
fruit fair at Spokane in chargo of D.
A. Cameron. The samples wore made
representative of the district and the
exhibit is expected to produce beneficial results. The people of Ymir
invito the attention of caDitalists to
the resources of that  region feeling
confident that the possibilities of the
district have ouly to be known to be
appreciated.
A CLEVER CAPTURE.
Brown   the    Murderer   of   Constable
Toohey at London, in the Toils.
Marion Brown, alias Thomas Alleu.
the wooden legged colored Texas
tramp, who murdered Constable Michael Toohey near London Ont., last
June and who for three months evaded the consequences of his brutal crime
was captured at Victoria, B. C, on
Monday evening and is now being
hurried across the continent to the
scene of the traeedy to stand his trial
for murder before a Canadian court of
justice. The details of the crime
aroused the indignation of the people
of Ontario and not only was a strict
search made for Brown but a reward
of $500 was offerod for his capture. The
police departments iu all the cities
of Canada and the United States wero
given descriptions'" of ihe murderer
and were asked to be on the watch
for him. Brown drifted into North
Yakima, iu Washington state a few
weeks ago and was shortly afterwards
spoted by U. S. Marshall A. L.   Dilly.
The London polico wero notified and
detective Mickel came west to
identify Brown. In order to got tho
desperado upon Canadian soil without
resorting to extradition, a daring mso
was resorted to. The detootive got
very familiar with Brown and gave
him a "confidential tip" that tho police wore after him for the murdor of
a marshail at Georgetown, Texas.
Brown fell into the trap and acepted a
suggestion that he seek safety ou the
Canadian side of the hue. As soon
as ho was safely on board the boat at
Seattle, bound for Victoria, the police
e.t Ihe latter placo were uotified and
on his   arrival promptly arrested him.
Browu is described as one of the
most desperate criminals among the-
great army of tramps, but it is not
probable that he will ever again have
the opportunity of adding to his already long list of crimes. In order to
prevent his escape from the train,
the officers who have him in charge
have taken away his wooden leg.

I the decoratious will be gladly received
iu the church ou Saturday morning.
DUN'S TRADE REVIEW.
Dim's review  of   Canadian  failures
for the third quarter  of the year 1898,
show  a gratifying decrease, compared
with the   (wo preceding quarters, and
with tho same quarter of the  previous
1 years.    The failures   during the  time
j specified, wero not three-fourths of last
I.years' in   number   and   in amount  of
i liabilities not 56 per cent, while   they
I fall more than 20 per  cent  below  the
I average for the previous two quarters.
! Manufacturing   failures   show an   in-
���crease in amount although smaller  in
number, but trading failures, although
| only 80 less  than last year in  number
j are  in amount little over 40 per cent,
J aud   the   comparison   with     1896    is
j oven more satisfactory    For the   nine
| months of this year,   the  decrease  in
! number compared with last year  is 82
per cont, and in amount   of liabilities
the decrease, is 41 per cent.
