What a Returned Klondike!- Think
the Northern Country.
Mr. R. D. Wood registered last
night at the Phair hotel on his return
from Dawson Oity, where ho has been
spending a few months in the interests
of the London and British Columbia
Goldfields oompany of this city.
Mr. Wood was naturally silent with
regard to his own transactions in the
eountry, lint he conversed for a short
time with a representative of The
Miner on the Klondike generally.
Mr. Wood, who is a veteran miner,
having been through the placer excitement ill Australia, objected strongly to
the mining laws, now in force in tho
Yukon, and moro especially to thu 10
tier cent royally, tho most objectionable
feature of which is,that it is levied on
the gross output of tlie claims aud not
on the net profits. This quite disregards Ihe large amount of dead money
expended on the construction of
Humes, dams, sluice boxes and other
labor incidental to the working of a
placer mine. Another result of the.
present law is that a very large number of olaims are tied up without any
work being done on thum 'o p' we
their value.
In Australia a* man could take up
any number of claims provided he
worked them continuously; in the
Klondike a man is only allowed four
claims (one in each district), bur so
long as ho has a representative on the
ground for threo months in the year
be can hold the claims indefinitely.
The rosult is that hundreds of claims
are held by speculators, gamblers and
others, who have a man out. on their
properties, it* is true, hut he does not,
and is not* expected to do any real
work, Thus the development of tlie
country is much retarded.
There are thousands of idle men in
Dawson Oity, and auction sales of
outfits are daily Occurrences. It is a
problem how these men will ever get
out of Ihe country,many of them being
cily bred and quite unfitted for rough
life, in such an inhospitable country.
Many of them are floating down to
St. Michaels in boats, picking up a
few dollars towards their passage homo
by landing at intervals and cutting
cordwood, which they sell to the river
steamers for $10 a cord.
Dawson Oity i.s ill-drained, and
very unhealthy in

Tbe winter sets iu

lo live in, and a man earns every dollar he makes in it, though in two or
three years the conditions may be
more favorable.
It* is impossible for anyone to estimate the gold output of tho year, as
nearly everyone was doing liis best to
evade the royalty. It would ho impossible In give oven approximate
Mr. Wood said that whilo in Dawson
he had heard no charges of corruption
or oilier misconduct made against the
government ollieials. He had had no
difficulties himself with regard to
registration of deeds or other business.

As Soon as British Troops
Arrive in Candia.
llie British Admirals Will L'einand tlio
Surrender of tho Instigators  of
the Disorders.
Athens, Sept. 8,���The following
despatch dated at 8 o'clock this evening has been received from Candia:
"The Bashi Bazouks are committing
excesses aud the Christians in the surrounding districts are arming to inarch
to the assistance of the Candians.
There are eight warships in the harbor and a frcsh bombardment is expected. The British, German aed
Spanish consulates have been looted
and thus far 800 native Christians and
(iT British subjects have been killed.
Tlie Asty says it learns from' an
authentic source that as soon as the
British troops arrive at* Candia from
Malta the Turkish garrison in Candia
will be expelled, martial law proclaimed and thc ring-leaders put on
trial. According to a despatch from
Candia, sent laic this evening, tho admirals of the fleet have decided to
compel the disarming of Ibe Bashi
Bazouks and the surrender of the instigators of lhe disorders.
London, Sept. il.���The correspondent
of  tho   Times   at  Candia telegraphed
yesterday saying:
"It is estimated tliat no fewer than
800 Christians liave beeu massacred
and tlie town pillaged by Bashi Bazouks and Turkish soldiers. All reports agree as to the disgraceful behavior of the Turkish troops,wlio wore
seen firing by Ooi. Reid. The mob
ran through the streets shouting
'Death to the English.' Part of tho
town is still burning. "
London, Sept. !).���The correspondent of the Standard, telegraphing
Thursday from the British battleship
Cainperdown.off Candia, says:
Tho refugees tell fearful stories of
massacre. Thoy report that no fewer
TOO Christians are missing. Several attempts were made last night* to set on
fire lhe oflice of the Eastern Telegraph
company. It has been ascertained that
all the houses overlooking the British
camp wero loopholed for rifle fire and
barricaded. Every Christian survivor
of tho massacre swears that the butch-
cry was mostly the work of (ho Turkish soldiers, who first robbed and then
slew their victims. Edini Pasha is*

The Cause of, or tlio Responsibility for,
the Accident Still in Doubt.
Cornwall, Out,, Sept. 8.���All the
wounded men are doing woll and no
moro deaths aro likely to result from
Tuesday's disaster. The streets are
full of 'mon with bandaged heads,arms
and hands, and thrilling stories of escape abound. Ono man, after coming
to the surface, tried to grasp a piece of
broken wreckage but conld not move
liis arm, wliich proved to bo broken.
One man went down in the crash with
two companions, close beside him. He
escaped unhurt. His companions are
both at the bottom of the river. The
wreck was inspected yesterday by
officials of tlio construction companies,
but none will say anything as to the
cause of or responsibility for the accident, though all express intense sorrow.
None of the bodies m tho river has
heen recovered and it is likely, will
uot until tho removal of the wreckage. This will have to be done by
dynamite', iu which case most of the
bodies will be terribly mutilated.
Divers will probably bo at work today.
Ottawa, Sopt. 8.���The department of
railways and canals have sent an en
gineer to Cornwall to investigate the
causo of tho fatal bridge accident opposite Cornwall. The department is in

Consnl-Geiieral Stone says that the
parliament of that colony has under
consideration a change in the tariff
on leather goods. It is claimed that
local industries have American competition while the wages paid are full
twice those given in England. A

would shut out English and Anieiicau
goods. The manufacturers of vehicles
havo also combined and are seeking to
have the duties increased to check
American competition.

London,   Sept.   8.���Mrs.   Gladstone
is reported to be in ill health.
London, Sept. 8.���A committee of
the Anglo-American league, headed by
its chairman, Mr. James Brvce, presented United States Ambassador Hay
with an address today, congratulating
him upon his acceptance of the portfolio of Secretary of State at Washington. The address expresses regret at
his departure from England "where
you have discharged the weighty and
dolicate duties of ambassador with
such eminent tact, judgment and
courtesy as to win the cordial appreciation and confidence of the British
people." Continuing tho address
"Itjhas been your fortune to represent, your eountry here at a time of exceptional interest, when the war, now
happily ended, gave occasion for the
expression of the feelings of affection
and sympathy towards the United
States which the British people have
long entertained; but never before
have they been so conspicuously manifested. You carry back the assurance
of the depth and strength of these
feelings. The principle that there
ought to be permanent friendship and
cordial co-operation between the British empire and the American republic
is ono that all parties and all statesmen here agree in regarding as a
fundamental principle of British foreign policy, aud by it the whole people desire that their government should
be guided. Wo rejoice to believe that in
your country corresponding sentiments
are entertained and that a corresponding principle is now largely accepted.
Knowing that no ono holds these convictions more firmly than yourself, nr
can express them in clearer or more
felicitous terms, we gladly acknowledge tho great services you have rendered to both nations, and console ourselves on your retirement by tho reflection that you are called to duties in
your own country oven wider in their
scope, graver in their responsibility
and more important in tlie results they
may secure.''
Mr. Bryce, during the course of the
remarks, wliich lie made upon the
occasion, dwelt upon the "admiration for the splendid gifts 'and
boundless energy of the people of the
United States and tlio sympathy with
the principles of their constitution
which havo been ripening among the
British people.'' He also said he saw
iu the universality of theso sentiments
here, and the fact that thoy were reciprocated by a large majority of Anieri-
caus, a happy augury, as ho believed
that none could contribute moro to tho
peace of the world and the welfare of
both nations than tlie sense of essential
unity of the two peoples.
Col. Hay, in reply, referred to tho
gratification he experienced in hearing
sucli words from men qnalified hy experience and character to speak for tlie
British with certainty. He added:
"My voice has no such sanction as
yours, but I give yon it for what it is
worth, to assuro you tliat your sonti-
ments of kinship and unity aro reciprocated to tho utmost in my
country.'' Tho ambassador also said
that his work in England had been
made easy by the instuction he had
received from home and by the frankness and fairness of Her Majosty's
ministers and all Englishmen ho had
come in contact with.    He then said :
"On both sides of the ocean, the
conviction is almost universal that a
clear cordial and friendly understanding between Great Britain and the
United States is a necessity of civilization. I shall hold myself signally
fortunate if I am ablo to do anything
to contiuuo and strengthen tho relations of fraternal amity between our
two nations.''
London. Sept. 8.���The Stars and
Stripes were raised today, with tho
British Union Jack aud the Royal
Standard, on the marquee erected on
Salisbury plain, during the march-past
of the troops at the end of the army
manouvres, as a compliment to Col.
Alfred Bates, TT. S. military attacho
and Mr. Henry White, secretary of the
U. S. embassy and Mrs. White, who
went there by special train with Lord
Wolseley, the commander-iu-chief of
the British forces, Prince Christian,
the Duke of Connaught and other notables. The foreign military nttaches
seemed to be surprised at the sight of
the American flag. THE MINER,  FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9,  1898

when Sir Wilfred Laurier visited
Washington and arranged for the
Quebec conference that ho was acting |
under the direction of the colonial secretary, and the coming of the latter
when the conference is in session tends
to confirm that idea. Mr. Chamberlain desires an alliance between Great
Britain and the United States and to
reduce matters to favorable position
from which to begin negotiations it is
necessary that the differences between
Canada and the States shall be removed. It is not probable that Mr.
Chamberlain will visit Quebec. The
report comes that several Canadian
ministers will visit him at Boston,
so that it is safe to assume that tho
deft hand of the able secretary will
appear in proccdings. However,
enough is known of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier to warrant the belief that
no Canadian interest will be sacrificed
to * placate, or win the friendliness of,
the Americans. It may be give and
take all around, hut there is every
reason to believe that Canada will
como from the conference witli nothing to be ashamed of and nothing to
defend in the action of her trusted advisors.

A report comes  from   the Yukon by
way of a despatch to a Chicago paper
of  the   rescue of a   prisoner from the
Mounted Police by American  officials.
It   appears    that     the   offender   had
fraudulently mortgaged a claim which
he did not own and decamped with tlie
money.    He was  followed   down   the
river,   arrested,   and  was on his way
back to   Dawson   in charge of   a Canadian police officer, when the boat was
hoarded  by   American   officials    who
forciably   rescued   the   prisoner   from
custody.    Coming   so   closely   on   the
Meagher   case    at    Windsor,     Out.,
where a  Canadian was  followed  into
Canadian     territory     by     American
custom   house   officials   and    carried
by force to the  American  side, where
ho was roughly   treated,   this  case, if
true, is   likely   to cause ill-feeling bo -
tween the two governments.    The  Ottawa authorities are going  to demand
reparation from   tlie  United States in
the Meagher  case   and   they will undoubtedly demand   the   return of   the
prisoner liberated on the Yukon.    The
American   officials   on   the   boundary
are inclined to act with more  freedom
than international law  allows and the
government   at Washington   could not
uphold   them   in   their   objectionable
courses without   arousing    ill-feeling,
whieh would be  inconvenient at present.
This paper is not so large as it will
bo after awhile and at present space is
limited. Wo are getting so much news
nowadays that the question is not
what shall we put in but what shall
be left out. Therefore those writing
communications, especially on the subject of prohibition, must make their
letters brief to ensure insertion. There
is no uced to write a column when a
quarter of a column will serve.

Tho newspapers will not settle tho
question whether the Dominin government officials in the Yukon have
or have not heen guilty of conduct unbecoming tho positions they hold.
Upon oue side aro papers opposing the
government and on the other papers
supporting the government. Tho one
publish all sorts of accusations against
the officials which the other declare to
be inventions for political purposes.
As a had story about a person finds
more credence than a gooi.1 one, it^is not
((uprising that tho opinion has got
abroad that thero is something wrong
iu tho administration of affairs iu the
Yukon and the easiest way to get at
the truth is tho appointment of a disinterested commission to report on all
the matters iu dispute This would
immediately clear the officials of blame
Hnd would put a stop to the attacks
upon them in the press, which have for
the most part been founded upon the
statements of irresponsible persons
coming down from that region. The
disappointed aro always aggrieved and
are prone to attribute their failure to
any course hut the right one. Thore
aro a great many disappointed persons
in the Yukon and more have come out
of it and in their general condemnation of the country the officials are included. Thc complaints of these are
of little importance,bnt there is a mau
in Victoria who professes to havo a
letter written by a Yukon official in
which tho latter demanded $2000 and a
share of the claim staked, in consideration of speedy registration of tho
' aame. The monoy was not Jpaid and
the claini was not recorded. Upon
the letter the man bases a suit against*
the government for damages. If this
bo true there is cause for inquiry.
It is not. probably that there will he
any irregularities under Mr. Ogilvie's
watchful rule, but it would bo as well
to clear up matters now,so that it may
ho shown that liis predecessors are
more sinned against than sinning.

Tbo visit of Hon. Joseph Chamberlain to tbe United States at this timo
is   significant.    It   was   thought that
Tlio following cases comprise tlie
criminal (locket at tlio assizes wliich
begin on the 80th instant.
Regina BV, Bruno, indicted for
murder; Regina vs. Phillips, for
murder; Regina vs. Kane, for burglary ; Regina vs. Kane, for non-support of his wife ; Reigna vs. Lawson,
for theft ; Regina vs. Scott, for receiving stolen goods ; Rgeina vs. Fitzgerald, for attempted murder; and,
Regina vs. Oleson, for theft.
Messrs. Elliot and Lennie will represent the crown in each instance.
It is not yet known what judge will
preside at the coming assizes, or what
civil cases will be taken. It is probable, however, thnt such civil eases as
are ready for hearing will lie tried,
after the criminal docket has been disposed of. It is considered likely that
there will bo another sitting of tho
Supreme court in Nelson in October
for tho trying of civil cases only.

Captain Duncan, of the Duncan
Mines, limited, started a few men and
an outfit to Kootenay Crossing yesterday tn begin the work of clearing lhe
right nf way for the flume from Sandy
oreek to.the Granite mill site, lenders
fnr which have not yet been called fnr
as was staled in a previous issue.
The right iif way was sun-eyed last
spring as announced in The Miner at.
tiie time. Captain Duncan made a
trip up tn Ihe mine this week nnd
found   everything   in   good   working
order. At 'the DO-foot level of the
double compartment shaft a station has
been cut,and (he men are nnw drifting
both ways on the lead.
A permanent shaft house, engine
room, powderliouso and blacksmith
shop bave been erected, and everything is in shape for a continuous
winter's work.
A rich strike is reported on the Columbia & Kootenay mine in Rossland.
It is stated that 17 feot of shipping ore
running from $in to $114 a ton, has
been encountered, and average assay of
which gave $54 per tjn. Auguste
Heinze formerly bad the property undor bond, but threw it up, It is now
being operated by tho B. A. C.
and who can tell what habits they may
fall into when they leave. The way
to save the children is not by setting
up a prohibitory law for people break
laws, but to BO train them that they
will lc strong of character, knowing
wbat is hurtful to thom and what to
avoid, and thus arm them to resist
temptation in every forin. Prohibit
them to do a thing and that is the very
thing will try to do.
" Reform"   thinks     that     Goldwin
Smith and   Principal   (irant will live
to regret what   they have said against |
prohibition.    Tbis opinion is  on a par !
with the shallow   talk  in which   tem- j
perance agitators   indulge.    They may j
say wbat they please   in   favor of prohibition, but those who do   not   agree
with thein are blamed if they  express
opinions   against*   prohibition,   which
they have a perfect right tn dn if  they j
please.    According to "Reform"    Mr. I
Smith and Principal Grant should not
open their months, but let "Reform,"
and men nf  his   kind do all   the talk  ;
ing, something   that   "Reform"   evidently likes to dn.
"Reform" seems to think that all j
the drinking men are dressed in blue j
overalls and he is anxious for theni to
quit drinking and wear tweed. My
observations .show me that most of the
drinking is done not by men in nver-
alls, but by men in broadcloth and fine
linen who can afford to drink. If thc
liquor business depended upon tho
nickels of tho men in blue overalls or
factory cotton pants it would not live
a week. Shutters would go up everywhere. The saloon keepers and hotel
men that " Reform" speaks of who are
eager for the pass-ago of prohibition
that they may go into more reputable
and lucrative businesses are also rarities known only to '' Reform.'' Why
those men should stay in a business
that is a loss to them in reputation and
money when there are other respectable
and profitable business reaching out
their arms to them is beyond comprehension. Someone bas evidently
stuffed "Reform." No man need stay
in the liquor business who does not
want to.
It is also amusing to find "Reform"
rising up to defend the "pitiful drunkards" who he says aro plentiful in
Nelson streets from the imputation
that they would go to Northport for a
drink it they conld not got it here.
To say that tbey would is "grossly
insulting." Ye gods I These "pitiful
drunkards" must, then, he made of
sensitive stuff that they are offensively
patronized ou the one sido and defended from "insult" on the other by
" Reform." wliich makes it evident
that "Reform" is filled more with ill
nature, for those who differ with him
than ho is with respect for tho cause
he pretends to uphold. But the "pitiful drunkards" would not have to go
tn Nni'tiiport. Prohibition would breed
ilicit stills in tho mountains aud liquor
would find its wny in from all sidos
and it would flow freely in the dark
places of the city and under unrestrained traffic, for it would require
au army of officers to enforce the
law, the last state nf the, "pitiful
drunkards" would be worse than tbeir
first. ANTI-CANT.

To the Editor of The Miner:
All sensible people will agree with
The Miner that any attempt to make.
people fcetolers by law will fail. Every
man is a prohibition law in himself if
he would enforce it and if he does not
it is bis own fault. To say to the large
body of men who use liquor abstemiously and derive benefit from it, "we
are going to passu law prohibiting the
sale of liquor, " but arouses the opposition of those men, who have au undoubted right to oppose any movement
thei'eatening their personal liberty.
Tho letter signed "Reform," in The
Miner proves nothing. It is the same
old stuck argument of the jawsiniths
who have been trading ou temperance
for years. It* is evidence of The
Miner's fairness that it admitted so
coarse and offensive a letter to its columns, the language "Reform" used
showing tho ill-tempered kind of men
these are who profess to he the teachers
of the people.
I lived in the Amherst district in
Nova Scotia where a local opinion law
was adopted at the instance of the
temperance people. The consequence
has been that the traffic in liquor,
previously regulated under a proper
license system, lias fallen into the
hands of unscrupulous persons and
drunkeness is as common there as it
ever was. Liquor dan be got in any
part of that country and though the
trafflo in it is carried on secretly there
is as much of it sold as formerly.
"Reform" says that the temperance
people do not caro about the present
generation of drinking men, but tliat
tbey wish to save tho children from
drink and think that prohibition will
do it. If prohibition was universal, if
un liquor was made or sold anywhere
in the world, this might be done, but
thoso ohildren will not all remain in
Canada, prohibition or no prohibition,

Citizens'Grand Yearly (efebration
London, Sept. 8.��� Sir William
Crooks, president of the British association, delivered the inaugural address at the annual congress of that
body at Bristol today. He reviewed
the sources of the present and possible
wheat supply and argued that by the
most favorable calculation the supply
could not* keep pace with the world's
needs beyond the year 1981, but starvation might be averted through the
laboratory if the problomjof the fixation
of the supply of nitrogen contained in
tha atmosphere was solved. He estimated that fixed nitrogen of the value
of sixteen million pounds was wasted
annually by dumping the sewage of
towns into the ocean, while the store
in the atmosphere was unlimited. The
problem was how to utilize it. If
these stores of fixed nitrogen were ap-
lied to the soil they would raise the
average wheat crop per acre from 12.7
to aO bushels, enabling the supply to
meet the demand. Sir William was of
the opinion that the solution of the
problem would be the burning of the
nitrogen in the, air by a powerful electric current. Such a current might* be
obtained by tho utilizing of Niagara
Falls and the fixed nitrogen thereby
produced would cost* ��5 per ton.
Toronto. Sept. 8.���A special cable to
the Evening Telegram from London
Tho report of thc British Association
for tho Advancement of Science has
just been handed out nnd is of considerable interest to Canadians. The
success of the annual meeting at Toronto last year, the report says, was
largely the result of the unremitting
exertions of the local committee and
the support received from the Ontario
and Federal governments and the city
of Toronto. The report further expresses the council's regret at the Dominion contemplating the discontinuance of tidal surveys in Canadian
waters, and earnestly urges that the
survey be continued.
