The heaviest and most destructive  fire the province has ever experienced  occurred in New Westminster on Sunday last,   completely   destroying thp  entire business part of the city including the most eostly buildings, and all  the stocks of goods.   The fi*-e   commenced in' a bay storehouse   on the  wharf,' supposed to be by a spark from  a passing steamer.   The fire broke out  about   1 a. m.   and continued for upwards of 48 hours in its work of destruction.   Though the  local fire brigade   and  those of  the   surrounding  places, including Vancouver, rendered  every   assistance   possible,, probably  half the   resdients   of the place   are  r-   rendered destitute, and a   large number entirely homeless.  ' The following is a- fairly complete  '   list of,the buildings burned;   but the'  insurance will not be got at for some  time.

From Mary to Eighth street  and from Columbia to Royal avenue  were* many fine residences. Particularly did this apply to the residence of  Alexander Ewen, tire canncr, on Carnarvon street, between Alexander and  Begbie. It was the finest house in  that part of New Westminster and  stood on its own, grounds. Hardly a  thing was saved/ James Cunningham's fine house oh Agnes street-  did not escape. All that can be soon  to-day is the tall chimney towering on  tho hillside, surrounded by others of  lesser magnitude.  Mr. Cunningham  lost 34 houses  in  all,-besides   several blocks and stores.  He was ono of the  heviest  owners  of  buildings   in   New  Westminster.   All  the houses on the Milligan estate were  consumed, and James  Cunningham's  two brick and tw.o   wooden houses  on  Angnes street.   West oi  the city hall  square to Eighth street,   and   beyond,  extending south, there is not a house  to be seen.   The flames licked them up  as if nothing and were only spent when  Royal avenue, with  its wide  expanse  of street was reached,  but   not   before  many more houses had been wiped out  of existence.   On  Royal a venue, east  of Eighth street, five more   of James  Cunningham's   houses,  were   burned  down.   The residence of George Turner did not escape, and the  family or.ly  succeeded in securing a portion of the  furniture.   Mr.   and  Mrs. Bloomfield-  father and mother of Edgar Bloomfield  and Miss   Bloomfield,   of   Vancouver,  were rendered homeless.   The home of  Mrs. William Johnson,on Agnes street,  where her family hud  resided   for '35  years, was levelled t������ tho gi-ound,whiIe  the   Reformed   Episcopal   church   on  Seventh strset was   totally   consumed1  The residence of Aid. Burr,   on   Royal  avenne, just escaped   destruction.     It  is   situated just   east   of  where   the  ,churoh stood,' and   was   undoubtedly  saved through there  being   a   row   of  trees on the west side    'lwo of  J.   W.  Armstrong and two of  C.   G.   Major's  cottages on Agnes'street, were burned  while across the street the large furniture store ol Mr. Fales, witK his  residence adjoining, did not escape.  The Clinton block, at the corner of  sixth street aud Agnes street, was gutted, while the house iu the rear was  also burned. Here the fire stopped,the  residence oi ex-Shcrilt Armstrong being saved.  Eastward, along Agnes street, the  Olivet Baptist church stands to-dav a  gutted ruin. Southward, Mary stri-et  docs not contain a single house below  Agnes street. All the houses on the  Trew estate, Herring's drug store,Her-  ring's opera house. Holy Trinity ca-  thedral,Hcriing's houses on Carnarvon  street, and dozens of others were all  burned.  II ILil MB.  Lardeau Country Would Be Quickened  by   Transportation.  Frank Hanna,of Trail,who has spent  mosr, of the summer   in   the   Lardca'u  country with a view to getting hold of  some of the better properties there,is in  town having assays made on  the samples which he brought' down with him.  Mr. Hanna saj's that on the whole  the  Lardeau country is   very   quiet,   and  there is not likely to be an  immediate  liveliness until   transportation   is   assured.   Tlie C. I\ It. is surveying a iine  from Arrowhead down Trout   lake   to  the town of Lardo.at the head of Kootenay lake.   The people of  the   district  feel that the line is likely to be  built,  as they are confident t'mt if the C.P.R.  does not construct the road James Hill  of the Great Northern will do so. With  the proposed Nelson &Bedlingtnn railway constructed from the main line of  the Great Northern to the lower end of  lake, it would be perfectly practicable  for Mr. Hill to run a line of barges  up  the lake to Lardo.   where   connection  would be made with therond'sprospective line from the lattertown to Arrowhead.   The Great Northern is'   already  in" control of the Kaslo &   Slocan   railway, and the people of the upper country are confident that unless the C.P R.  spendily builds the line   through   the  Lardenu'Mr. Hill will do so.  With transportation at hand, says  Mr. Hanna; the Lardeau will come to  the front very rapidly as a great lead  producing district. Taken as a whole  it is a low grade" camp. ^ and the ore  cannot stand the excessive rates  required by the packers. ��������� There is  some high grade ore hut it is found, in  stringers, and thus far has not been  proven to be permanent. Mr. Hanna  has had any number of assays made  all over the district, and he says that  an average of the results would give  about 40 percent, lead) with 10 or 12  ounces of silver, aud from at trace 'to  four or five dollars in gold. Some of  the,ores ho had tested gave as high as  $85 in all values, but this, he says, is  exceptionally rich. The $85 assay was  an average of IS inches of ore in a  three-foot lead, as exposed by a drift in  about 25 feet.. On another property,  which ho inspected,-Mr. Hanna found  ii ledge 'showing on the surface for 'a  width of from five to ten feet. The  showing could be traced for over a  thousand feet, and the ore was in sight  for the whole dis'ance. The ore was  of comparatively low grrxde, but, with  transportation it should be a vuluable  property.  Not much work is   going   on.     The  Silver Cup, the show mine of  the   district, owned by the Sunshine, "limited,  a Hornc-Piiyne subsidiary company, is  also being operated,   and   is   credited  with having very good ore.   The   Free  Coinage, an adjoining property, is 'also  being operated, and at   the   time   Mr.  Hanna left it  was   reported   that   the  owners had struck  ore in   their   long  tunnel.   The value of the "find   could  not bo learned.   The   Abott   and   the  Wagner groups, up Lardeau creek, aro  being   actively    developed    and    are  credited with good showings. .On Fish  creek the Glengary is   under   development and bus just mado*a sample shipment of one ton.   The property   is  located about 27 miles from Comaplix,at  the head of navigation on   the   thumb  of upper Arrow lake, and the   rate for  packing it down was $50 per ton. There  still remains a freight charge of' about  ���������i>4 per ton for transferring the   ore"- by  steamer to Arrowhead, which   is   the  upper landing of the Canadian Pacific  steamers.   The freight and   treatment  rate from Arrowhead to the Trail smelter is $13.50 per ton, so that  the   total  cost of transportation and treatment on  the Glengarry ore is about   $67.50   per  ton.���������Rossiand Miner.  that it is equally as well represented  as any district in the Kuotenay. Let  all the miners and prospectors give  this matter their especial attention  and see that there is not a mine or  prospect in the district th.it is not represented in the mineral exhibit.  C. W. McArthur, who has the contract ior building the stamp mill for  the Canadian Pacific Exploration company, owners of the Potto Erco mine,  was in the city last Tuesday and reports the work xirogressing nicely.  The boarding house and bunk house  are completed at the mill site and now  tbe men have commodious quarters.  August Johnson, of Nelson, lias  taken a con tract from Wilson Bros, to  sink a shaft on the Canadian Belle.  Day and night shifts have been employed, and Mr. Johnson intends to  rush the work to completion.  Louis Herman, of Kaslo, has taken  a contract to sink 100 foot on the Iroquois mine on Hidden crook. This  property i������ owii-d by Morrii-, Winslow  and Bannon, and is considered one of  the best properties on Hidden creek.���������  Ymir Miner.  I DONNELLY GROUP.  Another Sandon  Property That  Showing Dp Well.'  HERE IS A HEW SCHEME.  Yale-Cariboo-Kootenay District is to be  Divided.  The Rossiand Miner says that it  learns from a reliable souice that the  Laurior cabinet is seiimisly consider"  ing a plan far the division of tho Ynlc-  Cariboo-Koptenay electoral district into two separ,itpJconstittronci"R, It is  proposed that the TContenays will constitute one district, ind Yale and Cariboo the other. To create this additional parliamentary sent rt is not the in-  ��������� tention to bring in-a' general redistribution bill. The arrnngfwent will he  made by special legislation and it is  said that tne necessary bill will be introduced at tho next session of parliament. , ' '  Under the new arrangement it is  said, Mr' Bostoek, the present member  for Ynle-Cariboo-Kootcnfty, will confine  himself to Yale-Cariboo, and a now  man will be put up to represent the  Liberal interests in the Kootenay.  It is also reported that this is ont? of  the principal objects of the projected  visit to this province of the Hon. Clifford Sifton, minister of the l interior,  and Hugh Sutherland, th������ well-known  -Liberals of Manitoba. While on the  trip Messrs. Sifton and Suther.and will  also devote their attention .to the organization of the Liberal party1 in  British Columbia The Dominion  party "sack" is to be opened and its  contents will be u*5od to defraj expenses arising 'roni the establishment of  Liberal club's in the more important  centres of population.  ���������    - ��������� ���������������gg**-"������������������      ��������� ���������   ���������  To Prospect and Mine Owners.  Being out for a walk the other day,  we came   by the tunnel of,the Don-  nel y mines on the K. & S. Cody line,  and as a  man  came out  we enquired  for Donnelly, who by and by made his  appearance, and in his fashion bid us  welcome.   He took us around   to sec  his works.    The Donnelly group,   as  moat of us here are aware,  joins   the  Sandon townsite on the west, and two  of the claims join   the Ruth land and  are opposite   the Ruth proper, across  Carpenter ereek,  angling towards the  celebrated Payne mine.   Donnelly has  a little   better   than   56,000 worth  of  work done in one of the upper tunnels.  He has a choice rhowing of ore varying ' in thickness   from about   4 to 20  inches.   In his lower tunnel, where he  is working, he has not much clean ore,  but a great deal of concentrating,  as  much as a carload of it piled out in  fron of the tunnel.   The ledge runs n.  e. and s. w. by e. and w.   It is about 181  feet wide * with   a   granite   footwall  and a lime hanging,   enterlined prin-,  cipally with slate.   Every  day's work  shows an improvement in the ore, so  that in a very short time he will have  shipping ore, and, by all appearances,  in large'quantity.  The block of land consists of the  Gait, the Daniel and Gordon claims  and the Crawford and Donnelly Frac- f  tions, which give to the claims men-1  tioned about one mile of the ledge.  Donnelly has but one partner now,Aid.  Alex. Crawford. Mr. Donnelly came  to Sandon about 3 years since from  the Belt Creek neighborhood, Montana. His success speaks well for his  judgement and effort to so largely develop his prospect, which, from indications, promises fco'make a very fine  property.  Of course mining has always its uncertainties, but the indications here  are very marked arad promising in the  extreme. We shall watch development on the Donnelly now with much  interest.  Galliher says the road would build up  a splendid section of country, and he  thinks it would surely be a paying venture. .As one of the termini would be  in Trail it would give the miners a  chance to market their ores at a place  where gold-copper and silver-lead ores  could be treated to advantage at the  most reasonable prices. The road  would be of immense advantage to the  miners both for the marketing of their  ores and the getting in of supplies.  With Scissors and Pen.  Deep Mining.  Since the system of liquefying air  has been simplified andcheapened its  uses in an industrial way have been  widely discussed. In no way is it like;  ly to prove more beneficial than in  deep mining, where heat must be overcome by artificial means and the  pumping in of sufficient supplies of  fresh air becomes a problem.  With ample supplies  of liquid   air,  cheaply manufactured,   the   temperature of the deepest mine can be satisfactorily regulated, the evaporation of  the wonderful cooling medium supplying necessary oxygen to purify the air.  The problem of following ore veins into the bowels of the earth will be solved  by liquefied air, and sub-torrestial   existence will   take   on  a  new   aspect.  Deep mining under the ne w conditions  promises by scienee will mean a  thorough test'of mineral yeins to   a' depth  now undreamed of by man.''  The im-  agination'cannotgrasp tbe possibilities  of liquefied air.���������The Western  Mining  World.  Appreciate Sandon's Hospitality.  The Ajax.  YMIR HEWS.

There is considerable activity in and  around Ainsworth just now. In the  Twin mine development work is being  actively prosecuted. The lowest tunnel, No. 5, is pushed ahead rapidly.  It is calculated that the ledge will be  encountered after running 400 feet, the  point of contact being 140 feet below  No. 4 tunnel.  Other properties which are working  with promising results are the Silver  Glance and the Albion. The Highlander is being worked, and the Highlander concentrator is also in operation, principally on ore from the Black  Diamond and the Little Phil.  Mr. Maurice Gintzburger, the noted  mining expert, paid our camp a visit  last week is the interests of foreign  capitalists. It is expected that his  company will open up some of the  properties in this neighborhood.  Our population has been increased  by the arrival from Arthur,' Ont., of  Miss Brown, sister of Jim Brown, mine  host of the McGuigan house and of  Hiss May Brown, a niece of the same.  The Great Western and Washington  mines are being re-opened.  During the past week the Rambler  and Antoine have shipped one car  each.  The members, of  the New   Denver  brass band desire  to  express   to   the  citizens of Sandon their deep sense of  appreciation for the  hospitality   and  many favors shown them   on the   occasion of their visit to 'their, city   on  Monday, September 5th.     Fromi first  to last the reception committee looked  after the'band's welfare in a right royal  manner, with the result that one   and  all thoroughly enjoyed their visit.   At  the same time the band cannot   overlook the occasion to   return   to   some  big-hearted but anonymous* admirer of  theirs in Sandon their hearty 'thanks  for the gift of'$50 sen f them on Friday  last."* The gift is all thtO more;* appreciated from the fact that no trace' can  be obtained   of  the   mysterious   and  liberal benefacter.

A. Galliher, of the firm of Galliher & Wilson, of Nelson, is in the city.  His firm recently gave notice   in   the  British Columbia Gazette that it would  apply to the coming legislature   for a  charter for a railway from Trail to Say-  ward, and thence to Salmo and into the  Salmon river and Pend d'Oreille' country.   Mr. Galliher  waa   asked   about  this charter, and he said if the   necessary legislation granting the privileges  asked for wore obtained that there was  no doubt but that the road   would   be  constructed.   This rond would   tap   a  region, he said, that is   noted   for   its  mineral wealth.   The idea would be to  build branches from the main line   of  the road up Lost creek,  Sheep   creek,  Porcupine creek, the north branch   of  the Salmon and elsewhere.    There   is  business foi a railway along each   one  The custom of puffing up every  travelling troupe so common with the  country press is to be deprecated. It  sustains the unworthy, and gives the  worthy no fair chance. Of the Cos-  grove company that played here Tuesday aad Wednesday evenings we have,  however, nothing but commendatory  remarks to make. It does not, of  course, rank with the best that visit  the larger cities as to numbers or variety of entertainment; but it is voted  by all who attended the entertainments here the best of its character  that every visited the place. In short  the fact that the second night saw a  much better attendance than the first  is proof of this. They have none of  the old chestnuts that have done service for comedy companies. Most of  their programme is new and original,  and all chaste and acceptable to the  beat. They go from here with the best  wishes of all.  Silverton has 140 miners at work..  Mr. J.

THE MINING REVIEW.  SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1898.  i-t,!������i  * *.���������?:  . v* 1 ���������  ftfoe fining IReview  SANDON, BRITLSH COLUMBIA,  SATURDAY....SEPTEMBER 17, 3898.  Stjbscbiption $2.00 Per Year  Strictly in Advnace.  SHOP TALK.  During  tho past year  some  half a  dozen newspapers of tke Slocan have  . suspended   publication,' the. Slocan'  , City News being the last to succumb,  and they all attribute their misfortunes  to lack of support   from   the   miners  and the  local business men.    This is  a naked fact, and it is regretable   in  the  extreme   that it   should  be  so.  Nothing  is as good  an index of the  state of business in any place   as the  appearance of its local paper.    If it  has an emaciated appearance,   in the  lack of local advertisements and well  " -written articles on local affairs, it may  be taken for granted the place is lacking in enterprising business men   and  *   local energy.  We suppose, since it was begun fif-  ' teen months ago, The Mining Review  has fared as well in local support  as  any paper in the Slocan,   and yet the  ���������publisher has often had in his time the  " support of three   merchants  in   his  business town    that   was  worth    as  much to him as all the support of the  merchants of   Sandon and  the . surrounding, mine owners   put together.  This should not be the' case.    A local  merchant asked to advertise  will say  that'as his  trade  is chiefly with  the  mine owners, he does not need to advertise; and the mine owner, as he has  nothing to sell to  the general public,  can easily show that'advertising would  'be of no value  to him.    Both, how-  ' ever, will admit, that a   well managed  local paper is directly and indirectly  of service to the camp, and should be  liberally patronized to make it vigorus  arid  strong.    Another man  will  say  the reason  he does not patronize the  'paper   is   because he  does not like  the' publisher  and  the  paper is  not  good enough  for the place.    These  arguments are  the  flimsiest possible.  The history of  newspapers  the world  'over is that they become vigorous and  serviceable  to their surroundings  as  they are patronized, and no more so.  The   Toronto Globe,   the   Montreal  Gazette,   the ��������� London (Ont.) Advertiser,   the   London (Ehg.) Times���������in  fact  all the  best papers of the world  to-day,' were begun as small  insignificant sheets,   but grew  as patronized;  putting  all excesses of earnings over  expenses into plant and growth  until  they became what they are to-day���������  powers in their respective spheres.  Local merchants should advertise,  not alone for the increased business  advertising may bring them immediately, but for the increased prestige a  weir conducted paper gives theplace.  From this prestige returns come in in  .various ways.  While every man who has invested  in the Slocan has not made a fortune  out of his investments, many of them  have, and they may attribute much of*  their good luck to the utterances of  the press of the country. While mine  owners cannot find use for advestising,  every one of them in this country  .should take from 20 to 100 copies of  their local papers regularly and send  them to stock holders, part owners,  prospective purchasers and capitalists  generally. The cost of the papers to  them would amount to but very little,  while it would be a great help to the  .publishers and a most serviceable advertisement for the country.  For instance we would like to employ a competent mining reporter, and  keep, him constantly in the hills doing-  nothing but going from mine to mine  in the Slocan, writing up mines and  prospects, showing the outside world  the wealth that is here and the field  for investments. This would bring  capital here, for our unworked properties, sales for stocks and interests in  worked properties, employment for  miners "and others and business for  the business houses ��������� but the salary of  such' a man would take the great bulk  of the present receipts of the office.  To employ such a man and cripple the  financial standing of the paper tor the  benefit of the public would not be a  prudent business step.and we forego it.  If, as we said before, the surrounnd-  ing mine owners would only take  from 20 to 100 copies of the paper  each by the year, we would willingly  'engage such a man at once solely for  'their benefit and the service of the  public. Newspaper publishers should  not be expected to become philanthropists���������they will run' their papers  on proper commercial principles,  making investments where proper re-'  turns are assured and nowhere else.  TEMPERANCE   LEGISLATION.  The Rev. A. E. Green, the champion  temperance alliance lecturer,   at  Kaslo the other day, employed one of  the     strongest   available    arguments  against  the plebiscite.    He said  his  association   did   not   champion   the  Scott Act, because it  was   only  sectional in its   application���������in force in  some counties   and not   adopted  in  others, and could not, therefore, meet  the desired end.     The argument  applies with  great force to the whole 'of  Canada   to-day.     We have a  coast  line nearly 6,000 miles in length, and  joining a country  where   temperance  legislation is but  little obseived, and  where liquor is   to be had   in   abundance.    No one can say that  prohibition can be enforced in Canada while  liquor is to be so easily had in the adjoining country.    In a   tvord   nothing  can enforce temperance but reformed  thought   and    universal   prohibition.  We do not think any atteniion should  be paid to the cry of the "vested rights  of the  manufacturer and dealer," as  all in the business went  into  it with  their eyes open, knowing theie was a  likelihood  oi a   prohibition   measure  being passed at any time ��������� but, we repeat it, sectional law  will never make  a temJDerance community.    You   cannot legislate a man into sobriety while  liquor is  to be had in. abundance  a  few miles   away.      "Ah 1   but,"   says  one, "stop the retailing in the country  and   see    the amount   of misery   to  thousands of families you will aveit."  True, this will,' under prohibition, be  diminished   to some extent * but it is  just a question, even with a heavy annual expense  for  the enforcement of  the measure, if the crimes arising from  smuggling, perjury, illicit manufacture,  etc. will not  be equally great.    Universal prohibition   and the education  of humanity, as to the benefits of tem-'  perate  lives,   are, to our  mind,   the  only cures .for the evils of the liquor  traffic.  LAUNCHING THE LIFE-BOAT.  There are greater dangers than those of  the angry sea. That dread disease���������consumption, kills more men and women in .1  geneiation than the sea has swallowed up  faince the earliest history of navigation.  There is a sure and safe life-boat ever  ready to be launched for men and women  who suffer from this merciless destroyer.  It is Di. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It cuies 9S per cent of all ca^es of  consumption, bronchitis, asthni.!, laryngitis, weak li*n{-;<?, spitting of blood and  throat and nasal tioubies. It acts directly  on the lungs, diiviug out all impurities and  disease geims. It soothes and heals the  mucous membranes of the lungs, bronchial  tubes, thioat aud nasal cavities. It re^toies  the lost appetite, makes digestion and assimilation peifect, in\igorates the liver,  and purifies and enriches the blood. It  fills the bloo'* with the life-giving elements  of the food that build new and lu.ilthy  tissues. It tears down, carries off and  excretes the diseased and half dead tissues  upon which the genus of consumption  thiive. It checks the cough and facilitate s  expectoration until the lungs aie thoroughly cleared. It is the great blood-  maker and flesh-lvnldci Unlike cod liver  oil, it does uot build ILibhy flesh, but the  firm, muscular tissues" of health It docs  not make corpulent people moic- corpulent.  Thousand!, have testified to their cuie  under this greattmedicine after they were  given up by the doctors, and all hope was  gone. An honest dealer will not suggest  some infer ior substitute for the sake of a  little extra sellish piofit.  tf A man 01 woman who neglects  L constipation suffers from slow  poisoning. Di Video's Pleasant  Pellets cuie 'constipation. One  little "Pellet" is a gentle la-.a-  tive, and t*,-o a mild cathaitic.  All medicine dealeis sell thtui.  No othei pills are "just as good."  SHE  HAD SETTLED  IT.  We have heard of a foreman in this  part of the country who lost his job  by saying that laboring men should  not be educated. When the statement was made, the laborers said he  or they'would quit, and it became a  case of "he." There is no questioning the fact that much education is  lost in the world���������that is many men  have it who so pervert its use that  they would be better without it, but  this is the fault of the men and not of  the education.'"' There is no man who  can enjoy the benefits of an educatton  more than a'working man. It cheers  him in his otherwise unoccupied  moments, and always shows him how  lo turn his work and time to best advantage. Education of the masses  always relieves distress and elevates  the standing of the community.  The Vancouver Province says tha  with two or three exceptions all the  Conservatives who took pait in the  late convention were Tuineiites.  That (statement is neither true nor  nearly so. If the decision of the convention is a mistake, as lo party lines  in provincial matters, it was forced by  the Province booming Joe Maitin for  premier.  The Big Bend.  "There will be a big rush of mining  men and capitalists into the Big Bend  above Revelstoke next year, almost as  great as Kossland in 1895-96," said a  minerwhorhad just returned from a trip  to the section. "The Big Bend," he  continued, "has been known as a min  ing district for more than 30 years.  But in those days placer mining was  the attraction. Prospectors went into  the Bend country by the way of Seymour pass from Shuswap lake and the  discovery of rich placer diggings on  French, Smith and McCulloclc creeks  attracted a lot of the old diggers from  old Cariboo, where the excitement had  .waned somewhat after the etirring  times 1858-62. Steamers plied on the  South Thompson river between Kam-  loops and Shuswap lake, and at one  time it was estimated that there wero  nearly 10,000 men engaged in placer  mining in the Big Bend. It is stated  that between four and five 1 millions  were taken out during 1S64-65, but it  was then, and is still, very difficult to  get a correct statement as to the  amount of gold in nugjrets or dust  taken from any placer diggings.  STILL PRACTICE WITCHCRAFT.  Telegraph    Creek    Indians    Wanted  Sacrifice a Boy���������Saved in Time.  A terrible story has reached'Vancouver from Glenora. It appears that  the Indians around Telegraph creek  still believe in witchcraft, and the  tragedy which was enacted about two  years ago, "when an Indian boy was  disemboweled    has   almost been   re  pented.  Tho magistrate nt Telegraph creek  was recently 'informed that another  sacrifice was in contemplation. ��������� A  boy, aged about 14, was to be slaughtered for bewitching and causing the  death of a girl. The services of Rev.  Mr. Appleynrd were obtained to quietly investigate the matter. Ho invited  the Indians to meet him for a wnu.  wau ; they duly appeared and brought  tbe most interested person in the proceedings with them. Mr. Appleynrd  then carefully explained the enormity  of the crime of murder; and how the  great queen would have all murderers  punished by death, and finally advised  them to give the boy to him for safe  keeping in the mission school at Mct-  lakatla, for three years, during which  time he would learn useful things including the English language, and on  ins return to Telegraph he would be  ���������ible to help others to get on well m  the world. Tho good advice was accepted. The tyce, or chief, pinced his  bund on the boy's head and told Mr.  Applcyard to take the lad.  Thus, by the foresight of the magistrate and zeal of the priest, a promising young Indian wis saved from a  bnrb.irous death. The boy is now enjoying the protection of the Church of  EnaUnd mission.  After coughs and cold-?  the germs of consumption  often gain a foothold.  Scott's Emulsion of Cod-  liver Oil with Hypophos-  phites will not cure every  case; but, if taken in time,  it will cure many.  Even when the disease is  farther advanced, some remarkable cures are effected.  In the most advanced stages.  it prolongs life, and mak<_t>  the - days far more comfortable.

Appreciating tho faot that the high chalk  oliils of England are no protection against  tho sea, the Dutch engineers drd not attempt to place an artificial vortioal wall  against thownves and the storm tides, but  coaxed tho sea to doposit its sands on tho  shoro and so build it up rather than throw  thorn inland and then, hungry for .moro,  Bat into tho shore. They bolroved it best  to satisfy its nppotite, but induoed it to toy  with tho sands which its own flood currents and waves bring from other Bhoros  and from tho offing depths. The sand  thus doposited blows in tho gales over tho  Inland country. Tho ongineers induoed  It to stop and build a barrior for them  against tho sea. One of tho heaviest dikes  along tho coast was built by the windo  thorn helves.  Tlio sand formod between tho jottlos bo-  comes dry in sunny weather, and the sur-  faco is blown ashoro whon 'tho wind is in  that drroction. It wai desired to build a  strong dike to conncot with the sand  dunos. This was accomplished by setting  in the sand, in rows about a foot apart,  tufts of dune sea grass near by. The tufts  were placed about a foot apart���������simply  littio handful*, of grass. Tho place for eaoh  tuft was dug out with the hands, the tuft  set into it and tho sand pressed around it.  Tho wholo hurfaco of tho dry, sandy,boach  above high tido was covered with 'this  plantation, and just back of it, at tho highest point of tho existing sandy area, ono or  two rows of reeds woro sot into the sand,  thoir tops cut off and the stalks loft standing about four feet above the sand. Tho  sand, drifting along over tho surface,  oatchos and in one windy day will almost  .bury tho tufts of grass and stand up a foot  along tho rows of reeds. Then another'  plantation wis made and another, until a  massive dike was built up to tho height of  tho adjoining dike. In high storm tidos  tho waves will eat into tho too of tho slope  and pull down the sand, but by the same  procoss of building tho diko is again restored to its former 6ize.���������Engineering  Magazine.

Seward,  in whoso office he studied law for about  two years. Soward retired from the governor's chair $200,000 in debt. Ho returned  to Auburn and went to practicing law.  - It was not long after this that Woqd-  Xord, tho famous manufacturer of plows,  began to have a lot of trouble with firms  all over tho country who infringed hia  patents. He began to look about him for  a lawyor to prosocute thorn. Realizing  that it was a gigantic task, he would havo  none but tho besc lawyor to besooured. In  his search he went to Albany and attended  the court of appeals for several days. Seward was arguing a case in that court and  Woodward's attention was attracted tolnm.  Woodward becamocon-vinoed that tbe lawyer, whom bo did not thon know, waa tlii  one to conduct his caso, so one day when  court was over ho made his way to tho  olerk of the court and askod who tho  young attorney was. Ho was much surprised to get,, the reply, "Why, that's Governor Seward."  When Woodward went to find Soward at'  his hotel, it was to learn that tho latter-  had taken tho train immediately after the  oloso of court for Auburn. Woodward followed him'on tho next train, and ongtigod  Soward to conduct his case for him., After  somo months Seward wont to Albany to  have the first oase against the infringers  tried.  The opposition was represented by 12  lawyers, among whom woro senators, congressmen and somo of tho host attorney*,  In tho state. After much debating amonj:  thomsolvos as to who should conduct tho  defense, they finally settled tho job upo:'  ono of their number.

Armed with tho opinion, Soward worn.  back to Auburn and bogan tho fight-till  along tho line, wherever there was an in-  fringomont.

"If I bought it I wouldn't havo any uc.  lor it."  "Wouldn't you?"*  "No." ^  "I'll sell it mighty oheap," porsistod the  boy, somewhat encouraged by the conversation.  "I don't think it is of muoh use, is Itf  "I guess it is."   * '  " You've got no uso for it, havo you?"  "I want to soil it, that's all."  "Why do you want to soil it?" '  "I want tho 6 conts I'll got for it."  "Then you don't wont tho puncil?"  Tho  boy' hesitated  beforo   committing'  hlnioolf. .    .  "I'd rather have the 6 cents," ho ventured at last.  "How much alike wo all are, my boy,"  Baid'tho benevolent porson unctuously as  he wiped his mouth, ','and I am just like  you! You would rather havo6 conts than  havo tho ponorl and I would rather havo  5 cents than havo tho pencil. Now, thon,  whon we are so perfectly agreed upon a  point, why should you seok by persuasion  to disturb thai, harmony? No, no, - my  son, lot us pormit things to remain as  thoy are. Thank you over so muoh, though,  for asking mo if I wishod tho pencil  Goodby, little boy."���������Washington Star.  Tired Eyes.  People spoak about thoir eyes being  tired, moaning that tho retina or seeing  portion of the oyo is fatigued, but such is  not tho case, as tho retina hardly evor gets  tired. Tho fatigue is in tho inner and  outer musclo attaohod to the eyeball and  the musclo of accommodation which surrounds tho Ions of tho eye. Whon a near  objeot is to be looked at, this musole relaxes and allows tho lens to thicken, increasing its refractive - power. The inner  aud outer muscles aroused in covering the  eye on the objoot to bo looked at] the inner  0110 being especially used when a noar object is lookod at. It rs in th'o throo mus-  oles mentioned that the fatigue is folt, and  reliof is secured temporarily by closing tho  eyes or gazing at far distant objeots. Tho  usual indication of strain is a redness of  tho rim of the eyelid, betokening a congested state of ' tho inner surfaco, accompanied by somo pain. Sometimes this  wcarrnoss indicates tho need of glassos  ���������rightly adapted to tho porson, and in other  cusos tho true remedy is to massage tho  eyo and its surroundings as far as may bo  with tho hand wet in cold water.���������Philadelphia Lodger.  , Shooting Seals.  At first thought it would seem that it  ought not to requlro any skill or experience to kill a sleeping seal at a distance of  only 80 yards, with a load of buckshot,  but the conditions make it very diffioult.  Tho seal lies moro than half immersed in  tho wator, his body moving up and down  and sideways, following avory motion of  tho sea. Tho boat is also moving and  swaying in every direction, and tho hunter  must balanco himself with his gun at his  shouldor, his mark the head of the seal,  which is constantly rolling from sldo to  side, though sound asleep, At first I  would often shoot o\or or under them as  much as two foot, and I found it moro  difficult shooting than ovor tho traps or at  tho swiftest flying bird. Whon tho seals  aro awako, "breaching," or "traveling,"  tho diAlonlty is groutly increased. Tako a  gun home day und try your hand at a  breaching salmon, and you will get somo  Idea of seal shooting without tho unsteady  boat.���������"Hunting tho Fur Seal" in Outing.  Whito, Gray and Blaoh.  On damp days whou tho oxhaust stoam  rolls up in great masses it makes a wonderful plumo, swaying baokward from tho  smokestack of tho locomotive. Whon the-  flroman piics his shovel, it is oharged in  half its volume with donso blaok smoke,  which ohangos to slato, and thon to gray,  and which then disappears altogether,  leaving tho groat plumo all whito as before. It has no oolor, but it is still of marvelous beauty, this giant plume In whito,  gray and black.���������New York Sua.  TO CURE COLD IN ONE DAY^  Take LaxatireBromo Quinine Tablets.

PItOVINCIAI, SECRETARY'S OFFICE.  a IS HONOUR the' Lieutenant-Gov-  iJ- , ernor has been pleased   to   make  the following appointments:  i    - j30th June, 1898.  Alexander Spkoat, of the Town of  New Denver, Esquire, to be a Gold  Commissioner at New Denver,a Stipen-  diar3' Magistrate within and for the  County of Kootenay, and a Deputy  Registrar of the Couuty Court .of  Kootenay, holden at New Denver. ���������'  }r   V\  Paystreak accounts for work done at  New Denver and Mayor Atherton's  bills glisten freely' in the city council's financial statements these times.  Some officials have a very high leganl  for the compunctions of their declarations of office.  A. Haller, at McGuigan, has decided  to raffle off his hotel and contents at  that place at an early day. He is is  suing 500 tickets at $3.00 each to do it.  All monies received will be deposited  in the B. C. Bank here until the  drawing actually takes place.  The Queen Bess and the Minnesota  Silver Co. mines have just completed  two of as complete bunk houses and  boarding apartments as are to be found  anywhere in the .country! Lodging  apartments will soon be at the. best  mines as comfortable as they are at  good hotels.  We would be glad if mine owners and  the owners of prospects that are being  worked, would send us in from time to  time a statement of all new discoveries  on their properties, for publication.  We are fully confident there is plenty  of worth and wealth in the Slocan to  give it first rank as a mining district,  and are willing to do our share to secure that rank for it. A full knowledge of what is going on would assure  the'outsideworld on this point also.  Let us have the truth as fully and as  freely as we can get it.  _ The Kaslo Kootenaian copies a long  tirade of abuse of the Mining Review  from the Rossiand Miner, -with   much  gusto.   As a matter of fact, the Mining  Review has never said one word,andwill  never say one word, against the honest  mining of the Rossiand camp;   but it  has protested and will continue to protest against the false booming of that  locality,the work extends its damaging  influence to the whole country.   It is a  notorious fact that every  month  or so  some "mine" in that camp is sold by  the sheriff for a   song, that   has  been  boomed by   the   Miner and papers of  that ilk, the shareholders and creditors  suffering as a consequence.   We repeat  this kind of thing does & serious injury  to the whole country, and if there is a  man in it who thinks otherwise, it we  could catch him, we could sell him to  a museum at   a   round  figure.   If the  Miner and boomsterslikeit would confine their puffing to   properties  alone  that are really worth it they would be  doing some degree of service to off set  their past injuries.   This is our way of  it,'and the course we intend to pursue  to   the   end.   The   Kootenaian  has a  lively remindcrfof this also in the case  of the Ibex.   Would in not have been  been   better   for  the country  if that  property had not been boomed till it  burst.  DREADFULLY NERVOUS.  Gents:���������I was dreadfully nervous,  and for relief took your Karl's Clover  Root Tea'. It quieted mj' nerves and  strengthened my whole nervous system.
