 BO. 2  SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, JUNE 17, 1899.  ,' The Union Scores a Point Upon the  ������. Arrival of New Men at tlie Ymir.  An amusing sceno occurred at fountain siding:, just above Nelson, Monday  morning. J.Roderick'Robertson had engaged about twenty-four men through  an employment agency for the Ymir  mine. At tlie Mountain they were met  by A. Parr, of the Ymir Miners' Union,  and informed or the truth of the situation at Ymir. The men declared'that  they had been told that there had been  no   trouble  whatever.     After  stump  of half the world on a globular projection,   issued   as   an advertisement bv  tho Canadian   Pacific It'y  CVy;   one  worn, tattered copy ofOllendorPs "New  Method  of Learning English";   a few  local butterflies, minerals and shells of  Ins own collection;  half a dozen kindergarten cubes, pyramids, spheres, etc.  ol glass, which he had bought with his  awn money;  and a small assortment  of second-hand carpenter's tools. With  the single copy of Ollendorff  he was  teaching  one hundred and   four boys  English,   and   by means of the  Can.  lac. advertising chnrt  ho wn3 endeavoring  to make them acquainted   with  tho world in which thev lived."

Roderick  Robertson's statement   that on   June  2nd ho was waited upon   by a deputation of miners,   who requested a conference.   This statement, the secretary  says, is entirely incorrect.    Recently  by mutual agresment the superintendent and foreman of the Ymir mine met  some of the executive  in tlie Miners'  Union hall,  but nothing materialized.  Under the by-laws tho members of the  .Miners'Union   may be  miners, mine  workers, mine mechanics, smelter and  mill men, a,nd ore handlers.  The Ymir Miners' Union havo issued  the following posters: ''Warning.���������All  miners, top men, mill men and other  mine workers are hereby notified to  keep away from the Ymir mine, at  Ymir,'B.C, until such time as the difficulty between the mine owners and  employees bo settled.

It is   declared that  Fitz would not make  the match until  he had been guaranteed the large end  of tlio pnrso and the gate money, owing  to his reputation   and  position.   Mr.  Brady accepted   40 per cent,   for his  man  believing that in  the long   run  such  an amount and  a decision were  worth  more than   GO per cent,  and a  defeat.    Immediately after the   fight  Jeffries suggested   that  a   benefit  for  Ftzsimmons  was in order aud offered  his services.

Brady, Jeffrie" ma"  A few citizens   (and it is to be regretted that more of them do not take  a deeper interest  in  matters of this  nature) met in the   council chamber  Wednesday evening  to make arrangements for tho reception of the  Manitoba and   North West Press Association on their visit here on Friday, the  23rd.   The will reach  here about 3:30  p.m. and remain till G:"45 next morning,  giving more time to Sandon than any  other place in the  Kootenay, as  they  will stop at but two other places���������Nelson and Rossland���������and give not more  than three hours of available time to  either,  The importance of such a visit  to  the citjr should not be overlooked.   Al-1  together  about forty of the most influential papers In that section of the  two countries will  be represented' by  about sixty people, and the publicity  they can give to a description of our  resources   cannot   be   overestimated.  Everyone conversant with the country  knows that the Slocan, more especially  the Sandon district of it, is the richest  mining section of the Province;  and  yet   Rossland   has gone ahead   of it  merely because it has been better i.d-  vortised.     What all interested people  desire is that our resources should be  properly represented   to   the  outside  world, and  no  better way of doing it  can  be suggested   than   to have   the  naked  facts represented  through the  press of the country.    One step in tne  way of accomplishing this is to show,  as far as time  and opportunities   will  permit,   the   visiting   representatives  some of the specimens of our wealth,  ih<>   operations at th.3  mine*, ;mkI ox-  inal location consequently void. He  subsequently brought action to establish his title to the claims. The ease  was decided against him on the grounds  that his locations were not void, as he  had used mounds instead of stakes.  Ctillanan gave notice ������f an appeal to  the privv council, and tho trial was duo  to comeoff shortly. E. P. Duvif, Q. C,  and W. A. Gallihcr, represented the  contending parties.  Now that tlie case has finally been'  settled the Molly Gibson bo will reopened and wih soon become a regular  shipper.  MINES AND MINING.

Johnny Harris,   the big mine operator and real estate dealer of Sandon,  will visit Silverton  within a few days  to make an examination of the Galena  Mines.

The defendant subsequently ratified these acts, and it was  agreed between thorn that tlie defendant was to pay 1 he cost of opening up  . the hotel, and he was to run it, each  getting half the net profits.   The hotel  ' was subsequently  closed, and Martin  sued for his share of the profits  under 1    aiu  the for going agreement. Brown claims ! week,  that the   arrangement   was   that   the  plaintiff should  only   bo  enttitled to  half the net profits after he  (Brown)  had been recouped for his initial outlay in   acquiring   and   fitting   up the  hotel.      The    case ' was   decided   in  Brown's favor.  AM.;Crawford';was in Silverton last  . .         ,w���������u iui   i/uc   eight  hours.

Of course in any event because   of   surface   water   many   men  would  not now be employed;. but as  this drawback will be over in about a  month, it in idle to speculate on what  will follow after.  .��������� .. , , ... wimun illli.ll-  ager, read from  the stage  a challenge  to fight Tom Sharkey about September  15 for a   $10,000 side bet.

I stood in tho   corner of the room,  with my kick against tho wall and my  hand on the cold rifle-barrel. Ihe table  covered with my books lay between me  ajid t&e door, but for tho first few minutes  after  the   lights    were  out     the  darkness was so intense that -nothing  cbuld.be discerned at all.. Then, very  gradually, the outline of the, room be-  ' oanie visible, and the framework of the  windows   began  to  shape  itself  dimly,  before niy eyes.     After a few minutes  the door, its .upper 'half! of glass, and  tho two windows that looked out  upon the front verandah,  became specially distinct; audi! was glad'that this  was  bo,   because  if   the' Indians  came  up to the house  1 should  be  able   to  see their approach,  and gather  something of their plans.  ������������������ Nor'was I mis^  taken,  for  there    presently  came' .. to  my ears the peculiar hollow sound of  a tcanoo  landing  and. being  carefully  dragged up over the rooks.     Tho paddles I distinctly    heaxd  being    placed  undeineaLh.and the silence that ensued  thereupon f   rightly    interpreted    to  m'eam that'the Indians were, stealthily  approaching tho house.' ''  'While  it. would be absurd, to claim  that I was not  alarmed���������-even  frightened���������at   the gravity  of  the situation  and its' possible outcome, I speak  the  whole truth,when I say that I was not  ovei whelmingly afraid for4myself.     I  was conscious that, even at this stage  of  the  night  I   was    passing  into    a  psychical  condition  in  which my sensations seemed no longer normal. Physical fear at no tinie entered into the  nature  of my feelings ;, and though. I  kept my hand upon my. rifle the greater part of the night, I-was all the time  .  conscious ' that its assistance' could, be  of little avail against: the terrors that  '���������' 'I had to face.     More than once I seemed  to feel  most" curiously  that  I was  in no real sense a part of the proceedings,  nor    actually  involved in   them,  but  that I was playing the part of a  spectator���������a    spector,  moreover,   on   a  pajchic  lather    than   on    a   material  pi in.      Many of    my  sensations  that  night were too vague for definite de-  sui iption   and analysis,   but   the  main  foelwig  that will stay with, me  to the  '   end ot my, days is the'awful horror of  it all, and the miserable sensation that  if the str.nu had lasted a little longer  than  was actually  the case nij'  niind  must inevitably have given way.       ���������'''.-  Meanwhile 1 stood still in my corner,  and waited patiently for what was to  ��������� come.   The house  was  as  still  as; the  grave,   but  the   inarticulate   voices  of  the night sang in my ears, and I seemed   to hear  the  blood running  in my  , veins and dancing in my pulses.  '"'  lu  the  Indians came  t-6-the  back of  the house,  they would find the kitchen door and window securely fastened.  Thoy could not  get  in   there  without  m iking considerable noise, which I was  bound   to  hcur.      The   only  means   of  golfing   in    was   the   door   that   faced  ine, and I kept my eyes glued on that  door without taking them off for  the  smallest  fraction.of a second.  My sight adapted  itself  every  minute better to tho darkness.  "' I saw the  t   Iii,- that nearly filled the room, and  lea   only  a narrow ���������   passage  on   each  ai.de.   .f    oould    also    make    out    the  striughl     backs of .the  wooden  chairs  picked against it, and could even dis-  i siLfuish   my  pupors  and  inkstand  ly-  .uik  on  the  white  oilcloth  covering.  I  thought    of    the gay faces    that  had  gath ired round that table during the  summer, and i longed for the sunlight  its  f had   never ,longed  for   it   before.  Leas th.ui  three feet to .my left the  pu.-fjage-way   led  to   the   kitchen,   and  the    stairs    leading   to   the   bedrooms  above commenced in this passage-way,  but  almost in  the sitting-room itself.  Through   the windows 1 could see  the  dun motionless outlines  of  the" tree's ;  not a leaf stirred, not a branch moved.  A few momunts of this awful silence,  and then l^wus aware of a soft, tread  on   tho.   'boards' of    the  verandah,    so  stealihy   it  setmod  an, impression  directly on my biain rather  than  upon  the  nerves  of hearing.      immediately  ���������auerwards a black figure darkened the  glass-door, and f perceived that a face  was pressed against  the upper paries.  A shiver ran down my back,  and my  hair  was  conscious  of  a tendency    to  rise and stand at right angles to my  head.  It was the figure of an Indian, broad-  shouldered and immense ; indeed,    the  largest  figure of a man   1 have   ever  seen outside of a circus hall.     By some  power of light that seemed to generate  itself  in  the  brain,  I saw   the  strong  dark face With the acquiline' nose arid  high cheek-bones flattened against the  glass.     The    direction of    tho gaze I  .    could not determine, .but faint gleams  of  light as  the,  big eyes  rolled round  and showed tluir uhitos, told me plainly that no corner of the room escaped  their searching.  For what seemed fully fifty minutes  ���������     the dark figure stood tliere,  with  the  huge shoulders bent forward so. as  to  '    bring  the  dead  down  to   the  level  of  the  glass;  while  behind   him,   though  not nearly so large, swayed to and fro  like a bent tree the shadowy form  of  the other Indian.     While f waited in  iin agony of suspense and agitation   for  their next movement, little currents of  icy    sensation    ran up.   and down my  spine, a.ud my heart seemed alternately  to stop    beating,    and then' start  off  again with terrifying rapidity.     They  , must have heard its thumping and the  pinging of the blood in my head 1.Moreover, I was conscious, as I'felt a cold  ptream    of    perspiration  trickle down  my face, of    a   desire to    scream,  to  shout, to bang the walls like a child,  to make, a noise, or do anything that  . would relieve the suspense and bring  things to a speedy climax.  It was probably this inclination that  led me to another discovery, for when  I tried to bring my rifle from behind  my back to raise it and have it pointed at the door ready to fire, I found  that I was powerless to move. The  muscles,   paralysed   by    this strange j  fear, refused to obey the will.      Here  indeed was a terrifying complication!  ��������� * (��������� * *       *  There was a faint sound of rattling  at the brass knob,' and the door I was  pushed open'.''a'-couple of inches. A  pause of a few seconds, and it was  pushed open still farther. Without a  sound of footsteps that was appreciable to my ears, the two figures glided  into the room, and the man behind gently closed the, door after him.  They  ware alone  with me  between  the  four walls.      Could  they see  me  standing there, so still and straight in  niy corner 'I     Had    they,  perhaps,  already seen rue?   My blood surged and  sang like the roll of drums in ah orchestra;   and though I   did my best to  suppress my breathing,- it sounded like  ihe rushing of wind through  a pneumatic, tube. ���������'.;  ' .  , My suspense as to the next move was  soou,at. uri: end���������only, however, to give  place to a new and keener alarm.   The  men had hitherto exchanged no -'words  and no signs, but there were general in-,  dications of a movement across theroom  and whichever  way   they  went    they  would-have-to pass tho table.   If they  came my way they would have to pass  within six inches of   my person. While  I was considering this very disagreeable  possibility, 1 perceived that the smaller  Indian    'smaller by comparison)    suddenly  raised  his  arm  and  pointed   to  the ceiling.'The big fellow raised his  head and followed the direction of his  companions   arm.   I  began   tb> understand    at  last. ,;��������� They L were       going  upstairs,  and the  room  directly  overhead  to which  they pointed had'been  until  this night my" bedroom. . It was  the, room in which I had experienced  that  very morning so strange a sensation   of  fear,   and   but   for  which  1  should then have been- lying asleep in  tho  narrow -bed  against   tho  window.  The    Indians  then    began-to  move  silently around the room; the.y were  going upstairs, and they:were coming  round my side of the table.   So stealthy  were   their movements  that,   but  for- the  abnormally sensitive, state /of  the nerven, I should never have heard  them. "As'it was,  their cat-like tread  was distinctly audible.   Liko two monstrous black cats they came round tho  table  toward me,  and  for    the ".fust  time I perceived  that  the smaller  of  the. two dragged something along' the  floor behind him.   As it trailed along  over  the  floor  with' a  soft;,. sweeping  sound, I somehow got the  impression  that it was a .large, dead thing   -with  outstretched wings, or a large spreading ..cedar branch, y Whatever it was,  I was  unable   to see  it  even  in  outline, and I was too terrified, even had  I possessed  the power  over, lhy nitis-  cle.s to carry my neck forward in the  I effort to determine its nature.  ,    Nearer and nearer they, came.     Tho  leader rested a  giant  hand  upon  the  .table as he moved.    My lips were glued  together,   andL the  air.seeined    to  burn in my nostrils.   I tried  to close-  in/ eyes,- so that T might not,;'seecas  they, passed me ; but iny eyelids    had  stiffened, and refused to obey. Would  they   never,   get  by   mo ?,-,'.    Sensation  seemed also_ to.have left my.:legs, and.  it was as. ii'I were standing on mere  supports  of    wood  or, stone.      Worse  still, I'was conscious that I-was losing  the power  of   balance,  the  power'������������������������������������y.tq  stunu  upright,  or even  to lean  backwards against  the wall.      Some force.  wan- drawing me forward, and a dizzy  terror seized  me    that I  should  lose  my balance, and topple forward against  the Indians just as they were iu  the  act of xiassing me.  Even moments drawn out into hours  must come to an end some time, and  almost before I knew, it the figures  hun passed me and had their feet upon  the. lower step of the stairs leading  to the upper bedrooms. There cannot  have been six inches between us, and |  ye't 1 was conscious only of a current  of cold air that followed them. They  hat! not touched me, and I- was convinced that they had not seen me.  Even the trailing thing on the floor  behind them had not touched my feet,  a'|S i had dreaded it -would, and on such  an occasion as this I -was grateful even  for the smallest mercios.  The absence of the Indians' from my  immediate neighborhood brought little  sense of relief. I stood shivering and  shuddering in my corner, and, beyond  being able to breathe more .freeiy, I  felt no whit less uncomfortable.   Also  I was awaro that a certain light,  which, without t apparent source or  rays, had enabled, me to follow their  every gesture and movement, had  gone, our of tho room with their departure. An unnatural, darkness now  filled the room, and pervaded'its every  corner, so that 1 could barely- make  out the positions of the windows and  the glass doors.  Ah 1 said before, my condition was  evidently an abnormal one, The capacity for feeling surprise seemed, as in  dreams, to be wholly absent.' My  senses recorded with unusual accuracy  every smallest occurrence, but 1 was  able to draw only the simplest deductions   ,  The Indians soon reached the top of  the stairs, and there thoy hailed for "a  moment. I had not the faintest clue  as to their next movement. They appeared to hesitate. Thoy wore listening attentively. Thun 1 heard one of  them, who, by the weight of his soft,  tread, must have been the giant, cross  the narrow corridor and enter the  room directly overhead���������my own little bedroom. But for the insistence of  that unaccountable dread I had experienced there in the morning,- I  should at that very moment have been  lying in the bod with the big Indian  ui the room standing beside me.  For the spaco of a hundred seconds  there was silence, such as might have  existed before the birth of sound. It  \vaK_ followed by a long, quivering  shriek of terror, which rang out into  the night, and ended in a short gulp  before it had run its full course. At  the same time' the other Indian left  his place at the head of the stairs,  and joined his companion in the bedroom. I heard the "thing" trailing behind him along the floor. A thud followed, as of something heavy falling,  and then all became as still and si] it  as before. ���������.>���������''  II was at this point that tho a/ jios- j  phere, surcharged all day with the  electricity of a fierce'storm, found relief in a dancing flash of brilliant  lightning simultaneously with a crash  of loudest thunder. For five seconds  every article in the" room -was' visible  to me with amazing distinctness, and  through the windows I-saw the tree  trunks standing in solemn rows. The  thunder pealed and echoed, across the  lake, and among the distant islands,  and the flood-gatos of heaven then  opened and , let out thoir .rain in  streaming  torrents.  ���������Tin..'drops' fell with aT swift rushing  souno"/upon the still waters of the  lake,'which leaped up to meet thorn,  arid pattered with the rattle of shnl  on the loaves of the maples, and the  roof of the cottage. rA moment later,  arid another flash, even more bril-  iianband ofldnger duration than the  first, lit up tho sky from zenith to  horizon, and bathed tho room momentarily in'dazzling whiteness, f could  see. tho'rain glistening on tho leaves  and branches outside. The wind rose  suddenly, and in less than a minute  the storm' that had been gathering  all,day burst forth in its, full fury.  Above all the'noisy voices of - the  elements, the slightest sounds in the  room overhead made themselves heard  and in the few seconds of deep silence  that followed the shriek of (error and  pain' I was aware that: the movements  had'commenced again. Tho men were  leaving the room and approaching the  top. of the stairs. A short pause, and  they began fo descend. Behind them,  'tumbling'.'from' step to step, 1 could  hear that trailing "thing" being dra-  ged along. , It "had become ponderous r' "y ''������������������''','."'.;., ,���������  ,1 awaited their approach with a degree, of . calmness,    almost. of  apathy,  which    Was only    explicable    on    the  ground that after a certain point Nature apfilies'her own anaesthetic, and  a merciful condition of numbness supervenes.    On they came, step by step,  nearer;,and nearer, with tho shuffling  sound  of  the  burden  behind  growing-  louder as they approached.  :  They were already    half-way down  the    stairs''When I    was    galvanized  afresh  into a condition of. terror    by  the consideration  of  a new  and horrible '.-possibility.     It was the    reflec-  tiontnthat  if  another  vivid     flash    of  lightning were to come when the shadowy procession was in tho room, perhaps when it .was "actually passing in  front of me, I should see  everything  in detail, and worse, be seen myself!  I could only hold my breath and wait  .���������wait, while  tho  minutes  lengthened  into hours, and the prooession made its  slow progress round the room.  The Indians,bad reached the foot of  the staircase. Tho .form of the huge  leader loomed in the doorway of (ho  passage, and the burden with ari ominous thud had dropped from the last  step to the floor, i- There was a  moment's pause while I saw tho Indian turn and stoop to assist his companion. Then the- procession moved  forward again, entered the room closo  on my left, and . began ��������� to ��������� movo I  slowly round my side of tho table.  Tho loader was already beyond me, and  hisccompanion, dragging, on the floor  behind him the burden, whose confused  .outline I could dimly make out, was  exactly in-front,of me, when the cavalcade came to'a dead halt. At the  same' moment, with the strango suddenness of thunderstorms, the splash  of. the rain ceased altogether, and the  wind died away into utter silence.  For the space of five seconds my  heart seemed to stop beating, and  then the worst came. A double flash  of lightning lit up the room and its  contents   with  merciless" vividness.  The huge Indian leader stood a few  feet past me on my right. Ono leg  was stretched forward in the act of  taking a step. His immense shoulders  were turned toward his companion, and  in all their magnificent fieroeness I  saw the outline of his features. His  gaze was directed upon the burden his  companion was dragging along tho  floor; but ,his profile, with the big  aquiline nose, high cheek-bone, straight  black hair and" bold chin, burnt itself  in that brief instant into my brain  never  again  to fade.  Dwarfish, compared' to this gigantic  figure appeared the proportions of the  other Indian, who, within twelve inches  of my face, was stooping over (ho thing  he was dragging in a position that lent  to his person the additional horror, of  deformity. And the burden, lying upon a sweeping cedar branch which; he  held and dragged by a long stem, was  the body of a white man. Tho scalp  had been neatly lifted,' and blood lay  in a broad smear upon the cheeks and  forehead.  Then for the first time that night  the terror that had paralysed my muscles, and my will lifted its unholy  spell from my soul. With a loud cry  I stretched out my arms to seize the  big Indian by the throat, and,'grasping only air, tumbled forward unconscious  upon   the  ground.  I had recognised, the body, and the  faca was my own I  It was bright daylight, when a man's  voice recalled mo to consciousness. I  was lying where I had fallen, and tho  farmer was standing in the room with  the loaves of bread in his hands. The  horror o������ tho night was still, in my  heart, and as the bluff settlor helped  mo to my foot and picked up the rifle  which had fallen with me, with many  questions and expressions of condolence, I imagine my brief replies were  neither self-explanatory nor even intelligible.  That day, after a thorough and'fruitless search of tho house, I'left tho island, and went over to spend my last  ten days with the farmer; and when  the time came for me to leave, the necessary reading had been accomplished,  ard my nerves had completely recovered,   thoir  balance.  On the day of my departure the farmer started early in his big boat with  my belongings to row to the point,  twelve miles distant, where, a little  steamer ran twice a week for the accommodation of hunters. Late'intbe  afternoon I '.vent off in another direction in my, canoe, wishing to see the  island once again where I had been the  victim of so strange an experienoe.  In due course I arrived there,    and  made a tositr of the island. I also made  a search oil the little house, and It was  not.wilhorJt a curious sensation in my  heart than I entered- the little upstairs bedroom. There seemed nothing  Unusual.  Just aftifir I re-embarked, f saw a  canoe gliding ahead of me around the  curve of l3ie island. A camoo was an  unusual sight at this time of the year,  and this :c*iie soeined to have' sprung  from nowboro. Altering my course a  little, I watched it disappear around  tho next projecting point of rock. It  had high ctli-viag bows, and there were  two Indiantdin it. I lingered wtih some  excitement ,to see if it would appear  again /rouni tho other side of the island;'and 5li less than five minutes it  camo Into -view. There were less t ban  two hundred yards bei weon us, and tho  Indians', silrfifig on their haunches, were  paddling .sv-viflly in my direction.  I never .toddled fastor in my-life  than I did i& those next few minutes.  Whon I tujfiied to look again,' tho Indians had Mlorod their course, and  wore  again circling  tho island.  The sun U'as sinking bohind tho forests on tho .niainliihd, and the crimson-  coloured cloltds of sunset were reflected in the waters of the lake, when I  looked routail for the last time, and  saw tho big bark canoe and its two  dusky occurJ'ints still going,round the  island.' Then) the shadows deepened rapidly ; the Icifce grow black, and the  night wind blew its first breath in  my face as 1 turned a corner, and a  projecting bluff of rock hid from my  view both island, can canoe.���������Algernon  Blackwood, b Pall Mall Gazette.

"In two days' time Colonel Stewart,  ���������the 'Vice Governor General, and the  ."two Consuls will start from here to  Berber, and t'hence to Dongola:. The  reason why I have now sent Colonel  ���������Stewart is because you have been silent all this while and have neglected  us, and lost ti/mie without doing any  ��������� good. If troops were' sent as soon as  they  reach Berber.  THIS REBELLION WILL CEASE,  aud the inhabitants will return lo their  former occupations. It is therefore  hoped lhat you will listen to all that  is told you by Stewart and the Consuls and look at it seriously, and send  troops, as we have asked, without any  delay."  NBy sending these men away on this  mission^ full of peril Gordon was left  without' a single compatriot to help  - him in keeping the rebels at bay.

Some months before the expedition  Btarted Gordon received news that the  relief for which he had waited so patiently was on its way.  "1 was in Khartoum," says Hassan,  "in lhe Arabic year 1301 (1884). The  oily was then in deadly peril, for we  had been long besiegod, provisions were  scarce, and the dervishes were passing  on night and day. {Gordon wanted to  open up communication with the British troops coming to our assistance.  At the same time he wished to send  away as many women and children as  possible, that they should escape hardship and the risk of falling into tho  enemy's hands. I was ordered by- Gordon Pallia to proceed upon the Abbas  with Colonel Stewart, taking charge of  the mail, my orders being to hand it  to any one in authority at Dongola. I  was besides to help as an interpreter.  "There were with us on the launch  from Khartoum Consul Herbin, Frank  Power, several Greeks and others  whose names I forget. The rest of  the party���������mostly Greeks and Berbe-  reen merchants���������together with the women aud children, followed in two native sailiug craft, called nuggars. Gordon gave us for pilots two experienced Dongola reises or captains ; for armament.  A SMALL CANNON,  with a number of Remingtons and a  plentiful supply of ammunition. Two  of the. Pacha's armed steamers were  told off to escort us, past Berber, so  as  to  afford  us  protection.  "Gordon gave special instruction to  the steamboat captains that as soon  as the Abbas and nuggars passed south  of Berber, the latter town-was to be  hotly bombarded for three days. This  .was done to enable us to escape over  , the cataracts in safety, to give us in  short a good start, so that we should  escape    pursuit. All    went      well  enough until we got to Berber. There  the dervish garrison opened fire upon the flotilla, firing five rounds at us.  It was high Nile; the river being full,  so we managed to pass without being  hit.; :-.  lying concealed at Berber, startted in  pursuit of our sailboats the instant our  gunboats turned back. She had no  difficulty in overhauling and capturing them, with all on board. The  Tewfikieh failed to overtako the Abbas,  so we struggled past Abu Hanied, into  (he great gorge of the cataracts lying between that place and Merawi.  "Our reises heard and saw a good  deal of the dervishes. 1 suspected their  good faith, but Colonel Stewart insisted on reposing perfect confidence in  them. On the second day beyond Ber- j  be'r they began disputing with each  other. Early on the third day, when  opposite Salamauieha village, in the  Monassir country, our pilots contended whether tho Abbas should be taken down the left or right channel of  the island. 'They took the east side  watercourse.  "Very soon after we bumped twice  very heavily upon sunken rocks, knocking a grcathcile in the vessel, through  which  THE WATER CAME POURING IN.  Colonel Stewart had the launch run  hard ashore ujion a little islet to prevent her sinking. The gun and ammunition he had thrown into the Nile,  which was about fifty feet deep at  that point. We managed Lo save most  of the baggage and the punt. Our  reises decamped, swimming off to (he  mainland and in an hour or two they  oame back, saying they had been to  the village, and brought us the precious word 'amanu,' peace and fellowship. The natives, they said, were uot  dervishes, but friendly to the government and to Mustapha Yowor, of Dongola, and would provide us with camels. '  "Colonel Stewart told off me, the  French cavass and an .-Arabic clerk to  take the punt and row ashore and find-  out if the news was true. 1 begged  him not to send us, as, being Egyptians,' the natives would probably kill  us. The best tiling, 1, said, was to  send the punt with a few men down  to Dongola and see if tho English  had arrived. He declined to allow it,  and declared we must go ashore at  once or he would kill, us, so we went.  "On reaching the' village we met  three men in native dress. Que of  them was blind; his name was"Wad  Gamr Atmau. He was the brother of  the. Sheik of the -place. Atmau asked  us what was the matter, and having  exchanged 'Amanu,' we told him that  that is was God's will that our  steamer should be wrecked ' there.  Then they brought us the Koran aud  swore on (he book that they would  not injure us, but supply us all with  camels and guides and 'send us  down  HI.  to 'Dongola, where the English were.  We returned with the news, two of the  natives accompanying us lo the islet.  Then the two Monassir again swore upon the Koran not to act treacherously. v  "Next day two natives returned to  us, saying Sheik Suleiman had arrived,  and they had already secured several  camels for us, while the remainder  would soon be ready. The road to  Dongola ran direct through their village, so we should start from there.  Stewart and the consuls ordered us to  transport all the baggage at once to  the mainland near the village. By one  o'clock we were all ashore seated upon our bundles, waiting for the camels. A messenger came from the  Sheik inviting Stewart, Herbin aud  Power to dinner. Stewart and the  others dressed in their best clothes and  went, taking me with .them to speak  Arabic.  "We reached the SheikVhouse in the  village and were shown to a small, rather dark room. The place was  CRAMMED FULL OF MEN  in all about forty, most of them seated  on the floor or standing. Suleiman  and Atman were there and we exchanged greetings. All wore ordinary native clothes. They gave us two  angarcps to sit upon. Stewart and  Power sat together, and Herbin ' and  I side by side. The Sheik said the  camels would soon be ready, but invited us to partake of coffee and dates  while waiting.  "Less than ten minutes passed when  all the men who had gone out on tho  pretext of fetching the camels to  hasten our departure-returned heavily  -armed with axes, swords, knives and  spears. As they entered they shouted 'Kaffr 1" "Infidels 1' One of them  struck Herbin with an axe, cleaving  his head in two as he sat beside me.  1 sprang us, screaming 1 was a brother���������a Mohammedan���������not to kill me as  they did the other. A man nearly severed my right arm'with a knife���������there  is the wound���������while I clung for help.  Another drove a huge spear through  my leg, biit I struggled, and' begged  for life as they cut and struck at me,  before 1 swooned to the ground covered with blood., Herbin was stretched on the angarep.;  "The murderers also rushed at  Stewart and Power, but there were so  many of them that they got into each  other's way. :   Power hit out from the  "Below Berber we oast off the sailing boats we had in tow, intending  .that they should sail down, while wo  in. the Abbas steamed: ahead.;. Now it  turned out. that the captains of the  armed steamers which had accompanied  us declined to i-emain behind or to  execute Gordon's orders to bombard-  Berber. Fear of traitorous conduct  alone explains tlheir strange and sudden behavior. Without engaging the  enemy they- steamed hurriedly past,  returning  toward Khartoum.  "Meantime the sailing boats, with  the refugee Greeks and women and  children, had to drift down as best  they conld in the face of the strong  wind. "A little steam launch called the  Tewfikiefot,    which the dervishes    had  shoulder _with his fist, just as if he- p;lrafively little real fortune-hunting  were boxing, and dealt one mau such m Germany, ft is confined almost  a  blow on  lvhe jaw  that  it broke  the " ������������������-.-.-  bone and the fellow died soon afterward from the effects, But fighting  and swearing were of no use, for he  was stabbed through aud through and  killed in that very room.  "As for Stewart, he sprang to his  feet and dashing in among them struck  out. right and left. ��������� He managed to  get to the door through the mob, but  was hacked down, on the threshold  from behind with an axe or a sword.  None of-us was armed, for Stewart insisted on .leaving all arms behind with  the baggage party. Poor Power fell  dead beside me. When they found I  was alive they wanted to kill me, but  a brother of the Sheik saved my life.  The whole of the (baggage party and  soldiers, about forty in all, were rushed at and killed; not one of them fired  a liingle shot  in self-defence.  "All the money found on the bodies  was divided among the murderers and  everything else of value was placed in  two boxesand sent, under a guard to  Berber. The bodies of Colonel Stewart and his companions were thrown  ���������at once into the river. So ended Gordon's 'forlorn hope."'  When a woman marries in Germany  she ceases to be an entity, says a Munich letter. Her money, estates, clothes  whatever worldly goods she may possess, become absolutely the properly  of hex husband, ��������� who does what he  pleases wilh them. She has no standing in the eye of the law apart from  her husband. He may beat her,  starve her, live apart from her and she  has no redress; the laws are made for  him, not for her���������unless she happens  to break one ot them. And that is  not difficult, because they make laws  in Germany as they make sausages.  Mtrriago is looked upon in no European country exactly as it is in England or America; in nearly every instance, when it is not puroly a matter of business, it is a matter into"  which some business enters. A wo-  woman may be loved very much, but,  unless she has some little money, inherited or scraped together by saving  ���������no matter how small the , amount  may be���������she has little chance of getting married. At tlie same time every  young German looks forward to marriage as his inevitable fate at some  time or other, and a German girl  never looks to old maidenhood with  that contented resignation that ono  may see in England and America.  The dowry, then, is one prerequisite  to marriage in  Germany.   There may  be no love, but there must bo a dowry.  In   times past   Germany  has  been  regarded as the country of romance; today there is none more practical. Tho  dowry  business  has  been reduced    to  an   exact  science.     What   is  called  a  dowry   varies  from  $10  to    as    many  thousands;  after  that   it is  called    a  fortune.      The   lower  sum   is respectable for a serving maid, the higher for  almost    anybody.     In   the  army    the  sum is regulated by law..   The officers  are  usually poor;  many are'said    to  adopt the career with tho sole idea of  contracting a wealthy  alliance.   Their  salaries,  with  allowances,  range from  ������9 a week for a Lieutenant to  ������30   a  week for a Major-General.     Imperial  law does not perm'u an officer under  tho rank of Major,to marry at all,  unless he has a private income, or-unless  the dowry his wife brings him reaches  a  designated    figure.     This figure is  $20,000  for  a  Lieutenant and    grades  down  to    ������5,000   for    a   Major.      The  dowry  is paid    over,  not  to  the  husband,  but  to   the Government,   which  doles out  to  the happy couple,    after  marriage '3  per   cent,  on   the  amount  received.   This money is    retained by  the Government    until    the    husband  reaches  the  grade  of Lieutenant-Colonel, or until he resigns from the service, being refunded in full  in either  case.   The object is to prevent officers  from    marrying women    who    cannot  support  them with the dignity becoming the imperial army.  Out of the army the system is not so  good ; (he dowry is not handed over to  a watchful trustee, but is placed in the  hands of the husband himself, irrevocably, just as if it were his purchase  price It becomes his absolutely.  Mostly he puts it in his business, if he  has one ; if he has not, he buys bonds.  In either case he rarely loses it; but  the matter goes deeper than lhat. The  unjust part of it is that the wife is  uot likely to receive any benefit from  it, or al least little. Most people who  have had tho opportunity cannot have  failea to remark that the German, in  any position of life except the lowest,  is nol prone to do the square thing  by his family; he wears the best  clothes, all the family jewelry, and is  willing to pay only for his individual  pleasures. Hurried travellers descant  upon the German husband's virtues,  because his family is always with him  when he takes'his outings. If these  same people would only observe more  closely, they would remark that, while  thoy are always with him, he spends  very little money , on them. One of  the commonest sights in brewery or  beer gardens is to see a German order his dinner, eat it, and hand over  the remains���������often ouly empty plates  ���������to hh spouse.  Although  the context  would   iseem  to'point  to  the contrary, there is corn-  entirely to broken-down nobles who,  having exhausted all possible resources, and deep in debt; propose to sell  (hemselves as dearly as possible. Caste  being the ruling factor in the national life, titles have a marketable value  which is never overlooked. Aside  from the nobles few men marry for  money alone. They will not marry a  girl who has no money, but the re-'  quired amount is usually contingent  upon the man's position and his earning capacity. Thus, for instance, if a  man has a salary or income of say ������2,-  '"OP a year, he will expect to marry a  ;irl who has an ' equal income, or  something a little less. That is not  fortune-hunting, but prudence; custom not only approves of it,  but custom requires it, and custom also makes provision for it. Property is divided among male and female children alike, so that every girl  has a dowry of some Size. If a man  dies penniless, the the daughters have  to work and save a dowry.  . The laws of society in regard to marriageable girls in Germany nre not so  strict: as they are in France, yet they ���������iigo wi  are much more strict than in England ' institute  or America, and would be exceedingly  irksome to any girl with a mind of her  own. In France it is considered eminent!,) proper that a girl should never  set eyes upon her future husband until after she has become engaged to  him; in Germany it is only required  that she shall never be alone with  him foi an instant unlil after marriage.  A German girl of good family would be  irremediably compromised it she were  seen in public with her young man  alone, even after she had become be-  trolhed to him. She has the advantage of her French sister, however, in  (hat she may meet him at paities, at  her own home and in the houses of  her friends. That at least gives her  chance to deteimine his complexion.  As many people have remarked,  there is a greater difference ��������� aside  from language���������between (ho Bav'ar:  ians and the North Germans than  there, is between the Bavarians and  the French. A Bavarian never growp  tired of dilating upon the fact lhat  the Prussian' is not a German, but a  Slav, and that the true Germans inhabit Bavaria and Austria proper and  are next door to being Latin. It is  for this reason probably that in all  matters save thoso of a political nature the South German is influenced  by Paris and Vienna and not by Berlin. Among what are called the higher classes in Bavaria, then, the French  way of looking at marriage is much in  vogue, and the line is being drawn  closer and closer. The eminently proper procedure in matrimonial affairs  makes it an exceedingly vexatious  thing for a man of fhe exclusive ring  to gol'married at all in his own station.  Say that he has reached an age when  he begins to take an interest in a  quiet family life and hair restorers.  He inquires among his friends as to  tho marriageable girls they know. The  two prerequisites in the matter are  monoj and family. Provided these nre  satisfactory, he wants to see the girl.  That is precisely what is impossible,  even if he is a friend of the family.  His only hope is to find out what  chuich she goes to; then he gets somebody who knows her to point her out  to him. If she is pretty, he immediately goes to her family and proposes for  her. If he is accepted there is a formal betrothal, and thereafter he may  have the pleasure of seeing and speaking with her���������in (ho presence of her  family. Until after the marriage they  are never permitted to havo a word  together alone.  That is the fashionable procedure  and it is, of course, entirely French,  not German. It is " even , considered  better form for tho man to propose  for the girl without having seen her  beforehand���������because the seeing implies a vulgar"-curiosity. With Bav-  annus in general, however, there are : ffr;e������  no such formalities, although the opportunities for young., people to meet  are still very scant and rarely, if ever,  does a respectable young man propose  marriage-to a girl, he proposes to the  family. (All this is merely custom,  naturally, but any other form of conducting affairs would be looked upon  very much askance.  It is curious to note how newspapers in Germany are brought into play  by people matrimonially inclined. Germans, it may be explained, give more  publicity to their private lives than  the people of any other land. Their  death notices, for instance, are real  tombatones in type and are full of detail. If a man is going on a journey  he puts an advertisement in the paper  bidding good-bye.to all the friends he  has not had time to call upon. If he  has been ill he rushes into print again  to thank all the people who inquired  after him when he was in, bod. Upon  evcrj conceivable pretext, in short,  he lays open his heart to fhe world  in coif. type. It is perhaps only natural, therefore, that he should let  everybody know when he wants a  wife.  Most    German    journals,    including  those of Austria, contain daily from a  column to two columns of appeals for  "life    partners" "or "nest    mates"  or  whatever the poetic  fancy  of the advertiser may choose to call them. Many  timet, the advertisement  is in  rhyme!  The advertiser, man or woman, spares  no praise in personal description ;  the  mar. is usually "finely educated, of unquestioned social standing, prepossessing in appearance, sympathetic and a  good    business    man;"    the   .woman  "beautiful, accomplished, domestic, and  an  irreproachable    cook    and    housekeeper"���������the. last attribute being particularly in demand by German' husbands.   Always,  too,  is    the, dowry-  given or    required���������dwelt  upon    with  rather    significant   emphasis..    Sometimes a man wishes to marry "into a  business," or  the    woman,  usually    a  widow, has' a  business to offer in exchange for a  husband.     For the rest  it it, nothing "is lacking; the advertiser  gives  his  height,  weight,  state  of  his constitution,  color of  hair,  aud  n  great many other details.   Ho always  tells  what' sort  of hirsute   trimmings  he has on his face, because no German  girl,   unless  desperate,  will  marry . a  man without a  mustache.  When an advertisement does not  have the desired effect the advertiser  usually goes to a Schatchen, who polishes off the business very quickly for  a commission. But (he striking part  of the whole matter is the fact that  so many people should be forced '. to  advertise in order to get a suitable or  a satisfactory mate.' And the explanation probably is to be found in harking back to tho subject of the  dowry���������the ground work of the German marriage. A man may know  any number of charming girls, but  they may not be eligible from the financial point of view; a woman may  hayo her lists full of the names of.  men with . beniutiful mustaches���������but  she may be ambitious, by advertising  the amount of cash she is possessed of  she may catch a very big fish indeed.  The system makes marriage more of  a lottery than ever, but the Bavarian-  are partial ,to  lotteries.  Taken all  in  all, ono might    think  that in a country where the preliminary conditions  are so    artificial  mar-  hgo would be the most lamentable of  ions; that tliere would be as a  lesult of it nothing but heart' burnings, quarrels and separations. As a  matter of fact there is probably no  country in which marn-ed life���������at least  outwardly���������is so blissful. German  men are far from being perfect husbands; that is, if perfection consists of  kindness and consideration-, love and  icspect. Whatever they do at home,  in public they tieat theis wives as they  mighi' treat their cast off boots. The  ���������-eoret of it is that the wives seem to  expect to be so treated and like it.  Thej are usually as patient, as cows,  Therefore marriage in Germany 11  blissful The men are rough in their  dealings with women, but suave and  polite with men, and they doubtless  havo good hearts' slowed somewhere  beneath their voluminous waistcoats,  All the same, they fall a little below  our woman's standard.

Muc  Slcaineri   Wrecked   on   the  Atlantic  From 0><>i'l('iuIiiiK-  A  recent act  of  the  London  Board  of Trade has again made it possible for  careless and unheeding ship owners to  expose the lives of  thousands of British seamento the fury of the ocean.  The margin beyond which ships'' were  [ prohibited to be loaded has again been  placed-   so low . that  the  majority  of  , theni will go out with every chance of  foundering.     The law enacted, mainly  through   the  personal    efforts  of   the  famous iSamuel Pliuiso-ll,  who spent  a  lifetime in .ameliorating  the condition  of the British sailor, directed that on  the side of    every  British    merchanl  ship: should be  painted a circle  12  inches in    diameter,  with  a bar  drawn  across the middle. ���������   Below this bar, a  heavy penalty was attached for loading  the  vessel.      While his   law  was     in  action, fewer wrecks were known than  ever before.     Last December the Board  of'Trade decided  to  limit  this  act  to  vessels up to'and inclusive, of.330 feet  in   length.      Since  this  revision,   nine  steamers have been lost in the Atlantic alone.    An aggregate of 2G,750 tons,  worth more  than  ������2,500,001),  has  been  lest by overloading, to say nothing of  the lives.     The law was repealed by a  complication of red tape.

THE MINING REVIEW���������SATURDAY, JUNE 17, 1899.  I-  I  I';?*;-'-  SATURDAY JUNE 17, 1S99.  JUST WHY.  A miner asks 113,  through  the mail,  if after having  worked an eight-hour  Bliift  anJ had a rest of   eight  or  ten  hour#, he cannot work an extra hour or  two, if lie so desires.   The answer is  emphatically "No," under the new law.  The latter distinctly says  no man cm  work in  nn underground tunnel  more  than  eight hours in any twenty-l'our,  nor can any Oivner hire 11 man to do it,  under a penalty for both.    This is (he  feature of the law  to which   objection  is taken  by all  reasonable men,  ns it  deprives men of their freedom mri liberty of   action,  which  all British law  ftfij'H  is   imilienablj' the  light of   the  subject.   There  is   no question  in the  world but that the courts would upset  that law if (hey were appealed   to  in  that behalf.   British  law does  not allow adults   with their   reason   to   bo  manacled  by bass wood statesmen,  as  if they wore Indians or minors���������'incapable of judging   for  themselves���������and  wards ol* tho crown.   Nor is it necessary  to have such a Jaw for miners to  secure what they,are contending for at  the present.   'This is one thing  wc desire to distinctly indicate.    They think  now they can secure ?3.50 for the eight  houts. anil  there is  no  law that says  they shall.   They only hope to get it  by unity and  concerted action.   Supposing they had a year ago struck  for  eight, hours to constitute a day's work,  or supposing they  struck for  it now  without any law on   the suoject,  thoy  could   hare   secured  it then  or  they  could secure it now, us readily as they  can S3.50 for the short day without law  in that behalf.  We want it distinctly understood  Tlie Review has contended (irst,lasl and  always, lhat eight hours at a time is  sufncntly long for any man who values  his health to work in'most tunnels in  (his district, and too long in many of  them, though there are some that are  perl'eclly said and healthy for longer  hours, if a man desires to put them in.  We also frankly acknowledge that  $3.50 a day is little enough for good,  practical miners to earn in this part of  the country, with expenses as they arc.  What we object to is a manacling law  depriving free British subjects of their  freedom to hire their services as thoy  like, in their own interest, when in no  wise intctfcring with the rights of  others, which is their inalienable  right, by a lot of pettifogging provincial ministers, who pass such law for  the votes it may bring in contests, and  for no other purpose.  wo Stratford Ladies  Tell How minim's Heart and Kerro  Pills Make Weai People Strong.

Laboring men, mechanics, etc., of all classes, have but their  labor and skill ns their only stock in  trade against the capital of the capitalists in any sphere, and they must  reckon with it as do the capitalists  with their thousands and millions.  Public sentiment declares that neither  one must oppress the other, as fhe one  cannot exist without the other.  Tho Review held  at the outset  that  it was a mistake to have disturbed tho  friendly relations that existed between  the contending elements of the Slocan  when this law was introduced,  ai.d we  say  so still.    It is a  wise   man   who  leaves "well enough" alone, and a misdirected man  who  throws lire brands  between capital and labor, when   they  are working amicably together, as they  were here when this law was passed.  '   in  the present  issue,   it would  be  better, for tho mine owners  and  their  employees  to confer and adjust their  own differences where it can be done ;  but at the same time all owners must  bear in mind that mining labor is now  an  organized factor in  the Kootenay,  and must be dealt with as such  whenever differences arise.  fllNINQ STOCKS  ADD OTHER INVESTMENTS.  % .

If Brother Young, of (he Rossland  Standard, would only got a little more  truth in his paper wlnn dealing with  the mines of Sandon, his paper might  command more respect.

'-'���������'  >I?rom'-oili.ee of  the   Nelson Miners'  Union/W.F.M. ,  Wc don't think anything will be accomplished by threats.   The situation  is this : A law making radical changes  between mine owners  and  men, and  apparently asked  for by  no one, has  been passed making considerable concessions on one side and none  on the  other.    The owners shut down-their  mines until an  adjustment   of differences can be made.   Tho field is now a  fair one for arbitration to be arrived at  by, conferences   between   representatives of both sides.   No one side has  any right to try to force the other.   A  settlement is a fair business proposition as much as buying and selling a  farm.   , Threats from either side can  accomplish   nothing.    If the  owners  choose to shut down their mines that  is their business, and to do the best  .they*can for themselves by reasonable  business negotiations is the legitimate  business of the miners.    W-iiichever  way ii.goes' the country is certain  to  receive a serious blow, and to diminish  the consequences of that blow, is  the  principal aim of the'business men of  the country.

La Minervo, a  French Conservative  paper of Montreal has died a second  time during a twelve month.   About a  year   ago it gave up the ghost,   and.  after being propped up by "the sinews  of war," it ran on until the other day  when it suspended again,and this time  probably for good.   The day is past for  organs  as such  to succeed in Canada.  When  a   newspaper becomes  a party  organ it ties up  its independence and  is bound to defend the every act of its  party .whether right  or wrong.   This  becomes repulsive to   the growing independent thought of the country th.it  wants the truth told and the offending  party or parties   exposed.     There   is  nothing at all wrong in a paper expressing its preference  for a given party,  as all men  who study the questions of  the clay  have their preferences;   but  there is no party perfect, and tlie general public are coming to know it, and  arc cultivating sufficient independence  to say it.   In  fact  it would   be better  for the parties themselves, in the long  run, if this independence of expression  was  more generally diffused.   If parties and parly leaders knew thoy would  not be defended   in   wrong doing by  their following and  their press,  they  would be much more careful of public  acts and utterences.  " She comes Horn the past aud re-visits  my room ;  She looks ns she did then, all beauty  ami bloom, '' '  So smiling and tender, so fresh aud  ' so fair.  And yutulci she sits iu my cniie-  bottomed chair."  Many a man sits silent and alone in a  home of mourning and conjures up before  his eyes the face and form of the woman  who was once a loving- wife and a faithful  helpmate.    In thousands of such cases the  wife  might  still   be  alive  and well   and  happy, had the man been not only a good  husband,, but  .1   wise   adviser.      Women  slnmk   from  the  oideal of consulting a  physician.     They shudder at the thought  of submitting- to the obnoxious examinations insisted upon by most physicians.  - In the majority of cases they have none  of this hesitancy about  consulting their  husbands.    A wise man will widenstand at  once that troubles of this description will  soon break down a woman's general health.  He will understand that a specialist of eminence and woild wide reputation should be  frankly consulted at once.   Dr. K. V. Pierce  for Unity yeais chief consulting physician  to the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, at Buffalo, X". Y., is one of the'most  eminent and widely-known specialists in  the world.    With the assistance of a staff  of able physicians, he has prescribed for  many thousands of ailing women.    He has  discovered a wonderful medicine  for wo- "  men, that may be used in the privacy of  their homes.    It is known as Dr. Pierce's  Favorite   Prescription.

Write for Circular.:,  Beecher's  Theories of Public Speaking.  Mr. Beechcr had many theories  about the art of public speaking and  tho way of managing an audience. He  used to advise less experienced oritors  to begin rather a low tone, so as to  catch hold of the watchful attention of  the meeting-, and then, when that attention was secured, to let the voice go  as far as it would.  I have heard other orators advise a  man about to address a great meeting  to begin with the full clearness and  strength of his voice, so as to give the  audience the comfort of knowing; from  the very first sentence that they would  havo no difficulty in following all he  was likely to say. I do not know  whether there are any theories really  valuable in the art of oratory���������really-  valuable, I mean, as applicable to all  sorts of men.  I remember Mr. Beecher giving me  some suggestions once as to the management of a great American public  meeting, and 1 remember,, too, that I  felt constrained to reply : "I am sure  all that is quite right and quite practicable, il you only endow me with  your voice and your electric power  and your superb control over masses of  men."-Justin McCarthy in the Youth'e  Companion. j:   .

That excellent, high-class, mining  journal, Mines and Minerals, published  monthly at Scran ton, Pa.,' says: "In  view of the interest which has been  taken in zinc mining and .smelting  during the past year and ,i\ ^ilf and  the commercial and speculative prominence of tlie industry at the present  time due to the rapid rise in prices of  ssinc ore and spelter, the prompt appearance of tho preliminnry bulletin  upon the production of zinc iii 180S,  prepared by Cbus. Kirehoff for the  United States Geological Survey is to  be commended, and the report is particularly timely.   Mr. KirchoH'says :  "Generally speaking, the zinc industry has had a good year in 1S9S. The  consumption has been large, and prices  havo been above tho average of recent  years. To a considerable extent this  has -been counterbalanced, from the  smelter's point of view, by the rapid  rise in prices of ore, which has brought  unusual activity and great prosperity  to the miners of southwest Missouri  and southeast Kansas. The year has  witnessed an interesting struggle, becoming more and more acute, between  the older smelting plants of Illinois,  Missouri and Kansas, using coal as  fuel, and the now works in the Kansas  natural gas belt, of which lola is'the  productive centre. The advantage of  free gas in the direct lessening of cost  and in the indirect economies in the  metallurgical operations is causing a  transfer of the industry to the favored  locality.  "An interesting change during the  year was the transfer in location of a  number of the smelters from the vicinity of the mines to the gas belts and  the change from coal to gas-(ired furnaces. As was to be expected, a number of new works have been built while  the old ones have been enlarged or re-  modlcd to meet the new conditions  and to provide for the increased demands. The old mines are being  pushed to thoir, limit and zinc in a  small way has almost as great an interest for the ore speculator as has copper. The centre of the zinc fever is in  the Joplin district, but tho interest has  extended wherever the zinc mines are,  and the old Friedensville mines even  are being examined with a view to  0again working them. Tho increase in  prices of zinc ore during 1S9S was remarkable. During 1S97 it fluctuated  between $21.50 and 82-1.50, but in December. 1898, it rose to 810.50. About  the close of" tho year there was a do-  clino in the prices of ore which led to  the formation of the Missouri-Kansas'  Zinc Miners' Association, which represented all of tne Missouri and Kansas  camps. The association, which was  rendered possible by the peculiar conditions under which the zinc mining  was carried on, largely by individual  operator?, proposed to regulate the ore  supply by combining all of the concentrating plants into groups of 20, and  then shutting down one group at a  timo in alphabetical order whenever  an ore surplus was threatened."  It Was Kruger's Last Chance.  London, June 13.���������A blue book issued tonight contains the reply of Mr.  Chamberlain to the petition of the  Uitlandcrs to Her Majesty's government, which was mailed from the Cape  on May 10th. The secretary of the  colonies freely admittj that there are  substantial grounds for the complaints  embodied in the petition, which he  proceeds to discuss at length, emphasizing those affecting the, personal  lights of the Uitlandcrs, which infringe  the spirit, he says, if not the letter of  the London convention. Great Britain, ho contends, is 110.I willing to depart from her attitude of reserve, but  "cannot permanently ignore the arbitrary treatment of the Uitlandcrs and  the indifference of the republic to her  friendly representations." Mr. Chamberlain points out a policy that would  .remove all pretext for intervention,  and suggests a conference between Sir  Alfred Milner and president' Kruger, in  which ho leaves Milner a free hand,  laying stress upon the question of the  franchise in the Transv&ul, 'and instructing the British representative  that if his suggestions in this regard  are not fairly received he need not  urge any further discussion.  3N  LOVING   REMEMBRANCE  W.

GILHULA. On lhe advice ol  friends she commenced taking- Burdock  Blood Bitters. The, results that followed  were little short of marvellous. Her  slrenglh and vigor returned and in a short  time she was completely cured. Mrs.  Gilhula is to-day in the full enjoyment of  good health, and in all these years there has  not been the slightest return of the trouble.  Here is the Idler Mrs, Gilhula wrote at  the time of her cure:  "About four years ago I was taken sick  with stomach trouble and consulted several  of the leading- physicians here, all of whom  pronounced the disease to be cancer of the  stomach of an incurable nature, and told  mo that it was hardly to be expected that  I could live long-. Afterward the two doctors  who were attending- me gave me up to die.  " By lhe advice of some of my friends,  who know of the virtues of Burdock Blood  Biltors, I was induced to try it, and I am  now happy to say lhat after using- part of  the fii-at bottle I felt so much better I was  able to get up. I am thankful to stale that  I am completely cured of the disease by the  use of B. B.B., although it had baffled-the  doctors for a long'time. Iain firmly convinced that Burdock Blood Bitters saved  my life.!'  Here is the letter received from her a short  time ago :"  '���������I am still in good health.

(Continued.)  As  the  top  layer of earth   was  removed    by  the    miner,  a  loot or so  would   thaw  out  each   day.    The  diggings   being shallow,   it  was  not  difficult to open up a claim iu the smaller gulches.   On the bars inl the larger  -water-courses  it  was,not  feasible   to  ���������thus   turn   tho   water  aside.  '.Till.    GOLD    WAS FOUND  TO  JEX- |  ,     ;     TEND,  in many places underneath tho water.  Unable to follow this pay streak, such  claims  had  to ho  abandoned.   '  h'iro,  aa  a means  of  thawing  spots  .not touched by the sun's rays had been  'tried  without suocess at  Cassiar  bar.  The idea was regarded    as only a boy s  wild    notion,    though  now  there are  claimants  for tho credit of  the first  use ot the method thau was to revoiu-  'tionize mining in tho Yukon.   A certain miner on Forty Mile,' iFred" Hutchinson by. name,--was* working on a bar  whero    the pay    extended under the  water,, so that he had to abandon it.  Being   loath to    do so, however, and  .besides being of a practical turn, like  ���������all   the old  timers,  he conceived  tho  following plan:   After' the stream had  begun to freeze, Hutchinson began to  ���������chop tho ieo above that part of the bar  'ho wished to work, being careful not  ( to    break  through.   As  the  ice  froze  downward ho continued to pick. "W'hsn  over    tho pick went    accidently  went  ever the pick accidently went through  he  left it,  and used another pick till  the first one was frozen in solid: When  he reached the gravel ho had a perfect  coffer-dam  of  ico  around  him.   Then  ho  built    a firo    on  the    ground and  thawed    the gravel.     Hutchinson  did,  not put his discovery to much practical  use.   Tho   next-winter,    however, his  neighbors  took it up, and from  that  time a few miners began to work in  .winter.   Even-these were-regarded as  fools  by the rest,  who preferred  the  dull idleness of the cabins.   Soma of  the minors used to say.   "It's getting  to be as bad in here as it was outside  i���������work winter and summer  both."  1    But  (his was the first value of the  new    method,   that . it  made    .twelve  months   work possible instead of  two.  i.Then as deeper diggings wore discovor-  -, ;c'd  i!   bec-amt! impracticable to elevate  the dirt, for it was necessary for tho  sluice-boxes  to. be  above"   the  level of  tho claim.   As the art. of-burning- became    hotter  known, It    became   possible to work these doep claims,  and  from   now  on  claims  came   to   be   re-  -��������� epectively, divided  into  "SUMMER" DIGGINGS" AND "WIN-  .        TEH'-'  DIGGINGS.  The   first  "drifting"  was  done   by  0.  C.    Miller,   the    discoverer  of   Millor  Creek.   Not  only  was a-hole  thawod  down   to  bed-rock,  but a  tunnel  was  run,   and   the  whole   lower  gravel  of  the    claim  taken    out.-. Burning- may  be' said  to 'have   become   of  practical  use only, two or three years before the  Klondike discovery, so it can 'bo understood  how  rapid  changes  have   been.  In 1890,    an ��������� old-timor, Joe    Ladue,  built  a trading-post in  the  Yukon at  the mouth of Sixty Mile  River. Having a belief that other streams would  be discovered in that neighborhood as  rich  as Forty    Mile, ho advised every  miner who stopped at his post to try  Borne   other  streams.   He  particularly  recommended Indian River,  a stream  . of no groat size, entering the Yukon  from tho oast about twenty-five miles  below    his. post    and  thirty-six miles  above   Fort  Reliance.  ���������'   In  tho summer of 1894,  a miner by  the name of Robert Henderson stopped  jat   Sixty  Mile  Post.   Ho  was  a   new-  'comor,    lately from   Aspen, Colorado,  (but a-Canadian by birth, having been  fisherman  at    Big  Island,    Piclou  on Quarts Creek, and took out about  five hundred dollars, another'one hundred dollars, and more being taken but  later by other parties.   In the spring  he    went    baok  up  toward Australia  Creek,    getting  only    fair    prospects,  nothing    that warranted   tha oponing  up of,,'a olaim.   During that timo Henderson was-living mostly on the game  that  fell  to. his  rifle.  Ho  was alone  and had no partner.   Returning from  tho    head  of the    rivor,  ho  went  up  Quartz    Creek  again.     This  time  he  cast eyes longingly .toward tho ridge of  hill    at  the    head  of    Quartz Creek  separating  the waters of Indian from  those",  of  the  then : almost  unknown  Klondike.     Crossing    over  the    short  sharp divide (it is so sharp that  if a  I cupful of wator worn poured^ upon (ho  I crest, ono half would run ono way, the  other half tho other way)/ he dropped  down   into    a 'decp-eleft.--  valloy of  a  small stream running northward. Ho  prospected,   and found  eight  cents  lo  the  panl   'lhat "'meant, wages;  such  a  prospect    was  then    considered good.  Enthusiastic over the.find, Hendorson  went    back    over  the    divide.   Thoro  wore    -about  twenty    men  on  Indian  working,    mostly    at   the , mouth  of  Quartz,    some  of   them    doing  fairly  well.   Henderson   pu.rsunded   three of  tho men, Ed. Munson, Frank Swan.son,  and   Albert -Dalton,   to  go  back  with  him.  Tho four men took over whip-saws,  sawed lumber, built sluioe boxes, and  opened, up a claim in regular fashion  about a quarter of a mile below the  forks���������the spot plainly visible, from  the  divide���������and went  to  SHOVELLING IN THE GOLD-BEARING DIUT.  a^ bearskin robe and some other thi_���������_.  This notice had been put up in ��������� the  summer of the year 1895. The occupants evidently intended to return.  Tha white man and tho Indians  sooured their outfit at Fort Selkirk  from Mr. Harper. The following year  ���������that of the strike���������Carmack dropped down to Forty Mile, but soon returned as far as the mouth of the  Klondike for tho fishing, whero h"o was  THE    NEW    SYSTEM    TRIED  FOUND SATISFACTORY.

The New York Post ol Friday" says:  Tho Twenty-third street air-power cars  began running regularly according to  drying and curing their'.catch, Indian  fashion, when Hendorson on his way  back   to,. Gold  Bottom,   came   along.  ,When Henderson's boat touched  shore ho saw, Carmack. "There,'' ho  thought, "is a poor dovil who hasn't  struck it." Ho went down to whero  Carmack was, - told' him oC bis-  County, Nova Scotia. He was a  jrugged. earnest man, some six feet  (tall, with clear blue eyes. Henderson  rhad but ten cents in his pocket, and  .knowing Ladue's belief in Indian  River, ho said to" him: "I m a determined man. I won't starve. Let me  ^prospect for you. If it's good for me,  jit's good for you." Ladue gave him  a grub stake, and Henderson went  I upon Indian River and found- that it  :was as Ladue had said. He could make  wages. On that account, ho did not  desert it for the just then more popular fields of Forty Mile and Birch  Creeks, but determined to try again.  (With tho experience of the miner, he  knew that farther towards tho heads  of the tributaries of Indian River he  should look for, and probably find,  coarse gold, though perhaps not on the  surface, as it was oh tho river. Accordingly, tho next summer, found  Henderson again on Indian. He pushed  on, and  FOUND "LEAF" GOLD        ,  on what.is now known as "Australia,"  one of the main forks seventy-five or  eighty miles from the Yukon, ono  piece being, he says as large as his  "thutor-b-nail. Had he gone up the  other fork sufficiently far, he would  have discovered the rich diggings of  Dominion and Sulphur creeks. Returning, he went back to Sixty Mile.  .-.When winter cams he put his goods  on a ulrA and went up Quartz Creek,  which puts into Indian forty miles  trom the Yufeon.   He had no dogs to  Tho stream was the present Gold  Bottom (sinco relegated-to the position  of a fork of Hunker Crook, running  parallel with present Bonanza, and-  enteriug the Klondike about nine miles  up from Its'-mouth. Hunkor Creek  was not named or known then); Tho  amount that they shovelled in on Gold  Bottom was seven hundred and fifty  dollars. And that gold was the first  gold taken on the Klondike. It was  equally divided between -the f Our men.  At that time, if any ono had stood  on the divide and looked to tho westward, he would have seen tho valloy  of a large creek. That creek was  known as "Rabbit*' Creek���������so oloso to  Gold Bottom that if one knows just  the right spot on that divide a oup  ol water would not ouly have run  bolh ways into Indian and Gold Bottom, but also into the source of this  "Rabbit Creek, IFor in this manner aro the heads of a number of  streams gathered together, as the  spokes of a wheel lead to tho hub.  Early in August, Henderson ran  out of provisions, and leaving the  others at work, went down Indian  River and back to Sixty Mile. There  were about a dozen men at tho post  and at Harper & Ladue's saw-mill,  also a party who 'wore on their way  to Stewart Rivor. Hendorson told  thein what ho haid found. .'Ha. persuaded tho Stewart River party to  turn. back, tolling them thoy would  havo to look for it, whereas ho had  found it. Ladue at once sent two  horses overland with supplies, and all  tho others wont with them excepting  Ladue,. Henderson fixed up his boat,  and with some supplies started down  river, leaving Ladue to follow him.  On account of low,water, he was unable to return up Indian River, and  besides, being- nearer, he dropped down  to  the mouth of  the Klondike.  It was the midst of the fishing season. The salmon in the Yukon are  very plentiful during their run in  August. And some of them are fine  fish, the king salmon in particular,  even with the groat loss In weight they  sustain from a journey of sixteen  hundred miles from salt water, often  weigh     . , -������������������    .; '���������'    -  AS MUCH AS FIFTY POUNDS.  Chief Isaac's village were;encamped at  the mouth of the Klondike, on tho  north sido, taking the salmon in weirs  and drying them on racks in the sun.  Tho Klondike takes its name from its  being the river where tho fish weirs  aro set.  It happened at this time there wero  also a white man  with  a squaw,  two  Indian   men,   and' a'  boy   fishing,   but  with    a stationary    not.   They  woro  camped across trom the 'Indian village.  The    white man's    name  was  George  Carmack, (he squaw was hia wife, the  Indian men were respectively Skookum  Jim and Cultus (worthless),  or,"Tak-  ish" Charlie, while the boy was named  K'neth���������all *'l--i!cisji: Indians.      Charlie  was  a  big  chief  of  the  Takish.   Jim  would have been chief,  being the son  of   the  former   chief,, but   among, the  Takish     the  descent    is   through   tho  chiefs    sister.   Jim       and       Charlie  therefore,    though      called    brothers,  were really cousins, and WGre brothers-  in-law of Carmack.   This Car-mack was  originally   a  sailor  on   a  man-of-war,  but had taken up his abode with  the  Chilkoots    at    Dyea,   and    married  a  Takish   wife.   Carmack  liken   the  life  with  tho'Indians.   It is said (hat one  couldn't please him more than to say,  "Why,    George, you're    getting every  day      more like a    Siwasb!"   "Siwasli  George" is tho name by which he be-  camo generally known.   Carmack had  been  over  tho  pass years  bc-fore,  and  both ho and the Indians, who were his  inseparable    companions,    knew something   o������   mining,   though   they   could  hardly  be called miners.  Parmack was outfitted by John  J. Healy at Dyea to do trading, with  the Takish and,other interior! Indians.  Carmack built a poat which is called  "McCormick's" post. (Be it observed  that this Is the universal but erroneous pronunciation of the name Car-  maok.) It la situated on the bank of  the Yukon about twenty miles above  Five Finger Rapids. If any one, on  that wild stampede into Dawson in  the fall of 1897, had, taken the trouble  to tstop there, he would have seen  fastened against one of the rough log  buildings   a  paper   with   this   writing j  PROSPECTS ON GOLD BOTTOM,  and told him he had better oomo up  and stake.- At first Carmack did not  want to go, but Henderson urged. At  length Carmack consented to go, but  then he wanted to tako the Klondike  Indians up also,, as well as, his own.  Hendorson, demurred at that, nnd, being frank, may have said something  not complimentary about "Siwashes '  in general. It has boon reported that  ho said that ha "didn't intend to stake  the whole Siwash tribe," and he added,  "I want to give (he preference to my  old Sixty Milo Friends." AVhat effect  this may have had on subsequent  events I do not know; I can only surmise,  that it may  have had some.  Next morning Henderson went on up  by way of tho mouth of Gold Bottom.  Carmaok with his three Indians followed soon, but instead of taking tho  rather more roundabout way, went  up "Rabbit" Creek, tho mouth of  which is: a mile from the Yukon.  Hendorson reached Gold Bottom first.  When Carmack arrived, he showed  some colors of gold that. he himself  had found on "Rabbit Creek. Colors  aro single grains ��������� of gold; they nro  found, every where in the, Yukon Valley  ���������"colors" and "pay" are, by no means  to be confounded. I havo found them  on top of ico cakes in the Yukon.  Tho Indians and Carmack staked each  a claim on: Gold Bottom.   When they  joined by his Indians.

This schedule was maintained until fivo this morning. Tho  motion of the cars, as observed by an  Evening Post reporter who rode a  distance of four, miles on one yesterday afternoon, was singularly free  from the jerky movement of electric  and;cable cars.  Tho method of preparing tho compressed air with which the cylinders  aro charged is interesting. A hugo  engine draws In the free air, which  passes into ,a first cylinder whore it  is compressed to a volume of about SO  pounds to tho square inch; iu doing  this the air is  brought to  A HIGH TEMPERATURE,  and to free the air from this, it is  conducted through a copper tube to  a cpoler,, which is a cylinder containing  coils of pipe through which water circulates- Tho heat imparted to the  wator is afterwards available lor heating the feed-wator.  Tho air, at 80 poinds pressure, is  then passed into the first intermediate  couiuressur, where it is furiher compressed to form throe to four hundred pounds to the square inch, and  is then cooled for ihe second time.  Tho third compression reduces it to  twelve' hundred pounds per square  inch  and    the    fourth   to  from 2,5C0  wore    roady to go,    Henderson asked j to  3,C0 pounds    lo    the  square    inch  Carmack if he intended to prospect on   ���������     ,���������,���������.,, .... .   otiuail-    luou>  ���������     ��������� .... ..' -    .

The ship was leaking badly, and  could not be left safely thus all night.  Ho called for a heavy harpoon, and cut  tho handle, making a weapon about  three feet long. Armed with this, he  went down again to fight the octopus  and  stop  the  leak.  This timo he did not notice the.beauty of the translucent tropical water.  Slowly he .approached the spot where  the octopus was hidden under the  bilge of tho vessel. As he approached,  tho creature moved from under the sido  of the vessel, gathering itself for;the  attack. ���������-,-..������������������  There were but four or five feet between the coral reef on Which the vessel had grounded and her sido at this  point, and Conrad settled himself hero  for the battle. It' was not slow in  coming. The snake-liko creature extended one of its long arms. Conrad  gave a quick thrust with his harpoon  but the . devil-fish was quicker than  he, an'd snatched away tho arm. .'���������'-.  Again the creature struck, this time  touching Conrad on the hip; but on  the instant it lost its arm, severed  by  a blow  from  the  harpoon.  Then tho fight began in earnest. The  devil-fish tried to envelop the 'man, in  its many tentacles, and the diver kept  slashing with tho harpuon. , He inflicted ' wounds enough to disconcert the  creature and prevont.it from enwrapping him, but for some time none of  the wounds were serious.  At last, just as the creature had  .come to alarmingly close quarters, he  managed to drive tho harpoon into a  vital spot. When^badly injured in the  body, the cuttlefish discharges a great  quantity of dye, which colors the water a jet black. Instantly Conrad  found himself in a mass of ink. He  gave the sigaal, and was pulled up.  It took some time for the dye toclear  away so that anything could be seen  in the water. Then Conrad went down  again. He did not have to renew the  battle.   The  octopus  was dead.

Soma progress has been made in the  development of-strong, light and safe  steel llasks for the reservoirs. After  trying all the different makes of air-  flasks, both from this coun'ry and  abroad, a series of very elaborate'and  expensive, experiments were instituted  with a-view of increasing both the  Ultimate strength and the elongation  of the metal. Other experiments with  nickel steel havo shown that flasks  caii be niado with 1:10,000 pounds tensile- strength and 30 to, 40 per cent,  elongation; such flasks require .13,(100  pounds per square inch to rupture  them. ' ��������� ���������'"  THE  WAYS  OF  NATURE:  . A story is told of an attempt to introduced  the mongoose into Japan  to  kill the rats which ate the cano plantations.   After  having performed this  duty ;it multiplied  very rapidly    and  proceeded to kill all the snakes and lizards  as  well.

Unit   n   Krave  Soldier   Was  Saved   From  Humiliation. ' .  It is not every host who has the art  to prevent an awkward guest from  feeling ill at oaso. Tho London papers   tell a story of eue such host.  Not- long ago the officers of the  Twenty-first Lancers, a corps which  has rendered itself famous by a gallant charge at the Battle of Omdur-  mau, gave a non-commissioned officer  who; had distinguished himself at the  charge a mark of honor by inviting  him one evening to a soat at their table. He had: been decorated with the  Victoria 'Cross,'. and this distinction  was well won. .  The  young man came.   Colonel    Sir  Robert  White'presided at the dinner. ;  The    . non-commissioned   officer .   was>  somewhat  ill  at ease,   being   unaccus-  -  tomed   to   the   dinner  customs   of  po-   ���������  lite   society.   He   did   very   well   until  the finger bowls wero brought around;  then,   imagining  that  tho  bowl   which  was handed to him contained some new-  kind of drink, ho lifted it and drank  out  of  it."  This presontoda serious emergency to  his host, for if the other guests proceeded to make tho proper use of their  bowls, tho' non-commissioned officer  would discover his mistake, and be humiliated. The colonel was hot willing that the pleasure of his bravo guest  should be marred by any such humiliation. Ho therefore rose, and was imitated in this by other officers. Then  he took up- his fiugor-bowl; the rest  did  the samo.  " Gentlemen," he said, "I ask you  to drink with me the health of our  bravo guest who how wears the Victoria Cross 1"  Then he - drank every drop of the,  tepid water in his finger-bowl as ,did  all the other officers.  The story is a good one, but one  wonders what the non-commissioned officer will think when, as is likely to be  the ease some time if his advancement  continues, ho .-.learns the proper funo-  u   of  a finger-bowl.  -  m-  ���������wm I  \) '  I  I  t f,o  V'  I  IS>  >'���������'  fc  %>  HERE AND THERE.  ���������    These Few raraaraphs   SIny be Found of  Croat Interest.

A large London moat house, which  had. suffered severo loss through, the  devastations    committed    by rats, hit  upo:i a novel scheune to abate the nuisance.   [ A regular system exf kindness  was practiced upon the rodents.  Food  to their taste was left for them at regular intervals.   It was given them to  understand that the management considered, it a  great/pleasure    to- have  theim about the premises.   Also felines  were banished froim    the-  warehouse.  At tho end of six months the rats be-  oaane quite tame and would eat out of  the    butcher's   hands.       The   dainty  meats   reserved    for larger   animals  were     thenceforth    left      untouched,  rodent notions of honor being exceedingly strict.   With the result that although tho   rats  are daily on  the increase, with no limit in sight, lie firm  Is many pounds ahead* and on the road  Ui prosperity.  -j    BEAL    \  Hall's Catarrh Ouro Ih taken internally, nnd  nets directly on tho blood and mucous surfaces of the Nyntem.

Nelson expects a big Dominion Day.  Dr. Hartin is opening an hospital in  Kaslo.  The Kaslo Prospector has gone the  ���������way of all flesh.  Silverton beat Nciv Denver 1 to 0 at  football on Saturday last.  The Lardo-Duncan railway squabblu  is now settled, and both railways are  going to build.  The semi-warm weather is bringing  down the snow from the mountains in I  liquid, thus swelling Carpenter creek.  H. II. Jackson has been appointed  agent for the Spokane Falls Railway  at Spokane in place of C. G. Dixon, deceased.  The  Last Chance company aro fitting up an elegaiiD oflice and residence  c at  tho ore house.    All will be   completed in ft few day*.  Mr. Wilkes says 500 miners have  left the Slocan. This must be mi oxer-  estimate. We cannot think that more  than half that number have gone.  "Ring Champion" Jeffries' father is  a preacher, and when asked about tho  fight with Fitzsimmons lie said, "Tho  Lord whs with Jim, and, of course, Jim  won."  Summer Coughs arc often the hardest  to shake oil'. A bottle or two of Dr.  Wood's Norway Pine Sjrup, though,  cures the severest coughs, colds,  hoarseness or sore '.hroat.  Sandon is the next place to the New  Jerusalem. The New Jerusalem is  said to have streets paved with shining  gold and Sandon's streets aro paved  with shining silver that assays S3.G0 to  the ton.  Laxa-Livcr Pills have become the  ladies' favorite cathartic. They act  without any griping, purging or sickening, and if persisted in for a time  cure habitual constipation.  The Miners'Union are getting in a  Union Jack and banner, specially  painted for them, that'will distance  anything of the kind in appearance  and. finish in this part of the country.  For Constipation taice Karl's Clover  Root Tea, tho great Blood Purifier.  Cures Headache, Nervousness, Eruptions on the skin, and makes the'Dead  clear as a bell. Sold at McQueen's  Drug Store.  j There is no truth in the Silverton-  ian's report that the Reco mino is going  to pass into the hands of a stronger  company. The present owners aro  strong enough (or all the purposes  required of the mine.  The following will compose the football team that will play Now Denver  to-day : Goal, Peel; backs, Kelso, Cope-  land ; half-backs, J. Crawford, Gusty,  Lawrence; forwards, Regan, W. Cliffe,  Simpson, Gricrson und li. Cliffe.  The French cabinet resigned on  Monday.  Kaslo raked in about $125 the other  day by a raijl on the demi monde, 18  responding.  Fitzsimmons makes ?3o,o60 out of  his fight with Jeffries. Many a victorious man took less than that out of a  fight.  Stop that Cough,! Take warning. It  may lead to consumption. A 25c.  bottle of Shiloh's Cure may save your  life.   Sold at McQueen's Drug Store.  I The three and a half story skeleton  of the Ruth concentrator is now nearly  up. The building will, when finished,  present a very fine appearance from  its elevated site.-  Dr. Low's Pleasant Worm Syrup is  the safest and most effectual remedy  to give children for worms of all kinds.  No need of Castor Oil afterwards as it  contains its own cathartic.  In Alberni they have miners working S hours under ground and 2 over to  makeup the 10 hours for $0.50. Any  Jaw that forces respectable people to  resort to dodges to cleieat it must be  bad.  A couple of cases in the Privy coun-  I oil have gone against the city of Victoria, out of the Point Ellice bridge  disaster. It is likely that the total of  damages will run over a quarter of a  million.  Shiloh's .Consumption Cure cures  where others fail. It is the leading  Cougli Cure, and no homo should be  without it. Pleasant to take and goes  right to the spot. Sold by McQueen the  uruggist.  A man named G. B, Brolow robbed  his employer, Mrs. Pennant, in San  Francisco some two months ago. She  made it her special business to treat  him to justice, and, after chasing her  man all over the country during the  interval, she finally located him in  Duncan City, where he was arrested  the other day. lie will get a long sen-  tentencc for bringing stolen goods into  Canada.  Karl's Clover Root Tea, for constipation its the best, and if after using it  you don't say so, return the package  and get your money. Sold at McQueen's Drug Store.  ^ The Literary Society in connection  with the Methodist church, met at Mr.  C. M. Wilson's residence, Thursday  evening, with a larger attendance than  heretolorc. The papers given by Mrs.  Sanford and Mr. B. S. Wilson showed  careful preparation, and the animated  discussion which followed proved them  to be interesting. This is a profitable  vwiy of spending an evening and more  of the young people might attend  these fortnightly meetings to'their advantage.  Meat extract resembles Beef Tea made at  home in the fact that it contains no nourish-  mcnt"at all. Hard doctrine this for the  ladies who think that nothing can equal  their own make.    How is  H. BYERS & CO.  Nourishing then ? Because it is not a meat  extract only; it contains in addition the  nourishing qualities of pure lean ox b:ef  highly concentrated and pulverized. Bovril  is, therefore, superior to meat extracts or  beef tea.  i.^M*l.M.(������t..l.|'  sues  2T  Tho natural exuberance of  youth often leads to reckless-  ness. Young- people don't  take care of themselves, get  over-heated, catch cold, and  allow ,it to settle on the kidneys. They don't realize the  significance of backache���������  think it will soon pass away���������  but it doesn't. Urinary Troubles ' come, then Diabetes,  Bright's Disease and shattered  health.  A young- life has been sacrificed.  Any help for it ?   Yes!  BOAffS KIDNEY PILLS.  These conquerors of Kidney Ills are  making the rising- generation healthy and  strong.  Mrs. G. Grisman, 505 Adelaide St., London.  Out., say?: '  "My daughter, now 13 years old, has had  ���������weak kidneys since infancy, and her health aa  a consequence has always been poor. Two  boxes ot Doan's Kidney Pills have removed  every symptom of. kidney trouble, and restored  her to perfect health. , I am truly thankful for  the jp-cat benefit they havo confencd upon  M'W'W-UM,������-t,rwt.'<.f'wM1,'1,>M-|,M,r(,l  THE....

ALWAYS KEEP CM HAKD  There are cigars and cigars, but if  you really want a good healthy smoke,  of a cigar that will not rob your purse,  you will use the "Interior" or "La  Morena" manufactured by tlie Inland  Cigar Manufacturing Co. of Kamloops.  One trial carries conviction.  It is said that Joe Martin has finally  advised his client to give up his fight  for Doadman's Island, and Ludgate is  moving across to the American side.  And yet there aro sonic who think  Martin iH a good lawyer. He advised  Lucigate to take the course lie took,  and alter he lost many thousands of  dollars in the squabble, Martm now  advises him to withdraw.  It is generally understood that the  Hon. Joseph Martin is now sounding  his supporters in tho House with a  view to suspending the operations of  the eight-hour Jaw. He linds the railways dropping ttic use of their rolling  stockj the miners leaving the country,  whose votes he hoped to"catch by the  operation of tlie law, and commercial  business every where at a standstill.  He should have thought of all this before passing a law unasked for by the  country.  Catarrh cured. A clear head and  sweet breath secured with Shiloh's  Catarrh .Remedy. We sell six bottles  for So and guarantee an absolute cure.  Sold at McQueen's Drug Store.  It is simply useless to say much on  the situation in tlie Slocan at present.  It is given out that the Whitewater  Deep is going to pay S3.50 for eight  hours; it is known tho Arlington, at  SI00411 City is paying it. It is also a  fact that a few small properties are  working small forces at S3 50 for the  Bhort day. and some 13.50 for the long  day on surface work, and about everything else one hears is idle speculation. Many think the suspension will  not last; but talk to the men and the  owners, and both sides appear as obdurate as ever. This is just how the  matter stands when summed up.

SANDON.  At length the government has moved  in the matter of the Cody road. The  citizens of Cody sent Mr. Docksteader  over to Victoria ; but before going he  got assistance from Mr. Green, M.P.P.,  and Mr. Turner, gold commissioner at  Nelson. Armed with , their recommendations h'c succeeded in getting  $600. Private parties are supplement-  ' ing the amount, so that this wagon  road will now be made fairly passable.  The bed will be changed in part to  make it freer of elides and other impediments. Mr. Docksteadcr must be  quite a diplomat.  The Knights of Pythias  held   their  annual memorial services in the Methodist church  on Tuesday. evening.   A  -. number of  friends of the order were  admitted  by ticket.   As might be expected, the entire proceedings  were of  , a solemn character.   The Rev'ds Cleland and Sanford delivered  two very  appropriate    discourses    bearing   on  man's immortality and his duty to his  1 fellow man. ��������� Suitable mtisic  was  discoursed by a choir���������Mesdames Sanford  McMartin and Mr. Gable, accompanied  ':��������� by. Mrs. White and Mr. Trunery on the  organ and   cornet.     Although    there  were no deaths in the local lodge during the past year/the custom was obi-  served to commemorate  the death of  the founder, Henry Wrathburn.   The  entire service tended   very much  to  impressing serious thoughts   upon all  present.  KOll OV1CU KlI'TV" YIOAKS.  Sirs.
