Barber, Writes to His'  Wife  An Infamous   Slander on Sandon.  It is surprising what creatures there  are in the world after all. Up to a fow  day's ago there was in town a barber  named J. W. Brichnell, and for the  , sake of venting some unworthy feeling  on the place, or some one in it,  .wrote to his wife, and it got into  a San Francisco paper,.'saying that  ,the cholera was raging in this town  and the people wcre.floeing for their  lives. Now, any one with an ordinary  , spirit of humanity, would scarcely sny  this of any place, even'fpii 'hearsay;  but when the falsehoods made out of  whole cloth with the- full knowledge  that it is a falsehood unadulterated, a  good healthy dose of the severest penalty of the law is too good for him.  Now Prichnell knew when he Wiis penning these lines there never was a case  of'cholera in town and never a severe  case of any contageous fever for that  \-'' matter, and why he should when leav-  \ ing the place himself pen such a libel  ' it is most difficult to understand.  Even the editor of the Examiner in  whose columns this slander appeared,  \' 'if he knew the size of the place and its  surroundings, would have known the ,  latter was a slander to ease a slanderous mind. Cholera never originates in  a small town, with the climate of Sandon, and never is limited to less than a  section of country when it does break  out. All we have to say to Brichnell  \ is that if this is the principle he in-  ;{, tends to be governed by through life,  he will ere long come to some unexpected stop, and not a day too soon  either for the country's welfare.  The folllowing is the libel that appeared in the Examiner, scare headlines and all. Residents and people  who have been here, one and all, know  the utter falsity of every line in thi3  excerpt, but this docs not in any way  jS lessen the injury it may do the place  outside. Sandon is pronounced by the  health officers as the healthiest place  in the Kootenay, and tho fact that  there has been but one death hero the  past'six months, and that of a littio  child, is full proof of this. Let Brcch-  nell come this way again if wants to  sec his face in bold relief :  CHOLERA   MAKES WAY TO SAN-  DON'S HOMES.  scarcity of minors.  No estimate of the number of d< aths  has been received.  For the benefit of the Examiner we  will add, by way of comment on "the  small nnd sluggish stream" referred tw  above, that mountain streams,-rarely,  if ever, run sluggish/sind that the one  in question has a fall in the town of  nearly 6 per cent., varying in /grade  down the. valley. From here to the  mouth, at New Denver, is ten miles  and that place is said to he 2,000 feet  below San.Ion, giving an average fall  of nearly 4 per cent.  i noon io mi.  General Railway Notes.

The houses are built upon piles and  posts over the small and ��������� sluggish  stream, which runs down the gulch,  the stream acting as the sewer' for the  entire camp. With the subsidence of  <the spring freshets and partial drying  aip of the stream the serious ' conditions began to create alarm ..and. life  frecame almost unbearing. : Doors  fteve kept closed and all means possible were taken to lessen the evil, but  to no purpose. A short time ago  cholera broke out, gathering its victims at an alarming rate.  .Sandon is the centre of a rich silver-  hearing country, and it is looked upon  as one of the most promising silver  camps in the. entire Rossiand field.  L-ast year a gi eat rush of miners and  speculators made Sandon a lively  mining .camp, and claims on the narrow gulch sold ror fabulous, prices.  jNow, many of the richest claims have  Jbeeu  abandoned  on   account  of the  Before leaving Vancouver for Victoria, in company with'Sir John Evans  and other members of the British association, Lord Kelvin pave the News-  Advertiser the following message to  Canada: "We lsave'the mainland of  Canada with great regret, having had  a most delightful time. Passing  through Canada from east to the extreme west wc have been greatly interested in seeing such splendid signs  of prosperity already achieved, and so  much good and sure promise of great  increase 'by continued application of  high qualities and enterprise, both  prudent and bold, and of perservering  witli energy in overcoming national  difficulties. It is great happiness to  us to feel that our fellow subjects  throughout the Dominion arc united  in heartfelt loyalty ta* Queen Victoria,  and that now at last, after 100 years'  waiting with devoted attachment to  the mofher country and a determination to remain purl of the British  empire, is becoming more and more  clearly associated with material interests "  1 he British Columbia Mining Journal of Ashcroft publishes tho following  interesting information in regard to  an interior route io the Yukon :  Vieth and B jrland's pack train of 05  animals have for many years past gone,  up from Qucsnelle each spring to  Stuart's Jake, leave freight there that  has come via Ashcroft for the Hudson's  Bay Company's posts at Fort St. James  and other points. Thon the pack train  goes on to Ilazlcton, on the Suoona  river, takes a back loud for Stuart's  Jake, does some months' packing for  the company across various portages,  and returns to the 150 Mile House via  Qucsnelle to tho home of its owners*  Tho time usually consumed in making  tho trip form Ilazlcton to Quesnelle,  we aro informed by Mr. John Gillas,  who was'with the train two .years, is  iibf'tit 25 days, nnd tho trail is a good  one with plenty o! feed.

Williams lake.  Soda Creek or Qucsnelle, and afterwards to Hazletoh and at Telegraph  Creek���������should make this first section  in eight days. From Quesnelle to  Hazletnn in twenty days, from I-Tazle-  ton to Telegraph 'Creek (about 120  miles by ono tr.-iil and 220 another) in  ton days, and seven days more to Tes-  lin lake; in all -io days. You can  leave Ashcroft usually from the loth  to the 20th of April on yrass, but if  making a hurried trip would need to  feed some at night. From Quesnelle  on, the entire trail is thiough a good  grass country. Large, bands of cattle  have, been driven over the distance  in Cassiar days, except from Telegraph  Creek to Teslin lake, and arrived in  good condition for beef. Mr. Grifliti  now in the employ of F. W. Foster, of  Ashcroft, made tho trip down Teslin  lake last year to Stewart river in a  small boat with three companions.  Mr. Griffith stntos that there is no  rough water and no portages from the  head of Teslin Jake to Stewart river,  lie estimates the distance at about 300  miles from the lower end of the lake  to Klondyke. A party of four men  left Ashcroft in May last year for Cassiar, but concluded after leaving to  keep on to Klondyke. A friend of  tho party left behind, and now at Lake  La Hacho, is in receipt of a letter from  them in which they strongly urge him  to come in the spring the same route,  and stating that they made the trip  from   Ashcroft  to   Klondyke   in   two  ing quite large and very swift, and  only from the south or left hand side.  There is no part of the lake that is not  navigable for light craft steamers, and  the greater part of it extremely oeep :  in some places we were unable to find  bottom with 100 feet of lino. This is  ;he case the'entire length, with the  exception of two or three places where  [joints run out into the lake for some  distance. Tho shores arc.for the most  part rocky and precipitous, but beautiful camping places can be found along  the north shore. As you approach tho  lower end of the lake the, banks are of  clay, quite high, and c mmg down into  deep water. The lake gradually grows  narrow, and b'efore you are aware of its  proximity you are entering Hoolalin-  qua river, which is the outlet of this  large body of* water. We' expected to  find a rapid river, but instead ol' I hat  there was no current tc speak of for  some miles, but as wc proceeded down  the. river (which is JS0 miles long) the  speed of the current increased until it  was running at about the rate of five  an hour, Tho Ilootalinqua is perfectly safe for anv row boat, and navigable  for light draft steamers through its  entire length. The same can be said  of the rest of the route to Forty Mile,  with one exception, this being the Five  Finger Rapids, any boat can run with  ordinary caution without unloading!  While on the lake we met Mr. J. Gal-  breath, of Telegraph creek, who had  come through with his pack train of 13  horses which he had left at tho head  of the lake where there was an abundance of feed, Mr. Callbroath told us  that he experienced no difficult in getting through, which n.ust have been a  fact as he and his men cut the trail  and travelled the entire distance of 140  miles in fourteen days, and expected  to make the return trip in nine  clays, which he did, I afterwards learned. If I were going in again I would  certainly l;o in by this route, that is,  via Telegraph creek and Teslin lake,  on which there are no divides to cross  aud on the waters of which there are  no cayons or White Horse rapids to  encounter, Yours truly.

The above is a close corporation  having no stock at present for sale and  own the Silver Chief and Jem on tho  southwest slope of Silver Chief mountain, at tho junction of Gold and Gainer  creeks in tho Trout Lake division of  ���������West Kootenay. Their head office is  in Winnipeg, with m office in Winnipeg, with an office also at Trout Lake  City. The Silver Chief contains six  different ledges, three of which have  been crosscut. Two of them have ten  to twenty from the surface, and aiv-  other at almost 100 feet. Excellent  sample of clean looking galena have  been obtained in each case, arid.several  tons of ore are on the dump ready for  shipment, requiring no concentration.  A rich vein of black silver has been  discovered in the tunnel, which has  already been run in over 125 feet. Assays from shipping assortments have  been obtained in the order of 205, 570  2f:6 and 402 ounces per ton. This latter vein is a sulphide ore. and can be  concentrated to run 1000 ounces of  silver per ton. In addition to the main  tunnel, drifting has been done to the  extent of 50 feet or more, following  this new find.  months. Wo expect to publish the  mimes of the parties and full details of  the trip in a few weeks.    ,  It then sums up these facts : A man  can buy cnynscs at Ashcroft for about  S20 a piece, pack through, re-fit at  Telegraph creek, jell his animals at  Teslin lake for much more than they  cost here, as there will bo much work  there in packing, and in connection  with the section of the railroad to bo  built from telegraph creek to Deaso  lake, buy lumber at the saw mill now  being erected at Teslin lake and build  a boa!., or after June Igo down by the  steamer that the Dunsmuir company  is building and land at Dawson in two  months without soiious risk or privations and tho cost need be but very  little. You can outfit at any of the  points mentioned, and can obtain  horses and pack saddles at reasonable  rates. We desire also to state that  hundreds of. .miles''of this, route go  through a Country rick in gold, 'where  mines of value will surely be found  before many months roll round. Cariboo, Cassiar. and ' Ominoca will yet  yield sums.of gold that will compare  favorably with even the famous. .Klondyke. . .  Mr. W. H. Griffin in the following  lettcr.gives his experience of the Stick-  eon trail andlhe entire .practicability  of that route:  Editor'Journal :���������Dear Sir: In olden times all roads were said to lead to  Rome, but a (���������" present it scorns to bo the  question of the day which road leads  to the Klondyke. As.I was ov.n of the  throng of gold-seekers last year I. can  .tcll'something of the Teslin-lake route,,  which I and my partners travelled.  .Teslin lake is about 240 milesin length,.  and averages about tv.rre miles in  width.. A large but' sluggish ��������� river  empties into it at its' epper end and  here tho Indians have the canoes cache,  whore they leave the boats during their  absence while'going to and from  Juneau, wl ere they go annually to dispose of their furs.'. Here, at the head of  the lake we built our boat and started  on our prespeoling. There are three  streams cmptiig into the lake, from  the north or right-hand side.

In another six months the world wiU  bo in sorrow reading of disaster by sea  and starvation by land in the cold regions of the North, and friends and relatives of absent ones will bo regretting  with anguished hearts that they allowed those near and dear to depart on a  hopeless voyage.  Steamers have returned from Dyea.  Their captains state that misery among  the overcrowded fanatics has already  commenced. Delicately reared and  weakly store clerks arc there with a  few dollars in their pockets, no clothing but what they have on the backs,  and weak already from arduous travel:  while elderly men, past the prime of  life, with little ca>vtal, are roaming  around Dyea with no definite object in  view and unable to know what to put  their hand to  Many steamers crowded beyond their  capacity five times over have had to  put into British Columbia ports atter  thirty-six hours' sail srom Seattle for  provisions and water. At this rate of  sailing they would not get into Dyea  for six weeks, and during that time the  suffering of those on board would be  terrible. 'ITw.o unseaworth'y tugs were  loaded' with 150 souls, and in their top  heavy condition would topple over at  the. first heavy wave.'  The rush to .Klondyke cannot be too  strongly deprecated in the interests of  humanity.. One digging has been discovered. If more are. not'discovered,  the 'suffering will be appalling. ,  ADVANCE   IK   SILYER.  Supposed to be   Due   to Holding  of American Supplies.  Back  London, Sept. 7.���������There advance in  the price. of silver is supposed to be  due to the holding back of supplies by  Americans and to the idea that silver  currency 'will be wanted in India,  The purchases will be -for immediate  shipment by people having contracts  to fulfil in India and .China. The  Times and Standard concur in the  opinion that tlie impression that India  will buy silver is a mistaken one. The  currency department of India holds  13,000,000 of rupees which would be  realeasod against gold in the event of  gold being exported to Indie..  A gentleman  styling  himself  Capt.  Phillips-Wollcy   with   a   special  'emphasis on tho "Capt." and  the hyphen  "-," sanitary inspector of the province,  came to town  the other   day   with   a  flourish of trumpets, laid   information  against a dozen or  so   of   persons  for  neglect of   tlie   sanitary   regulations,  which resulted in the fining of  six   or  seven persons and tit" dismissal   of   a  couple of charges   ancnt   privies   and  cess pools because it was subsequently  learned the offences  were   committed  by persons now removed and the nuis.  ances were on the public highway.   In  this act the Captain managed to corral  son)- $-10 for the   enrichment  of  the  uvusury at Yictoiia, and in the   blaze  of his g.ory he lit out for  the   c.ipital.  Now what strikes one in  this   connection as singular is this:    Why a   government   officer  should   be    so   conspicuously partial.   In this connection  wc have nothing to say about the fines  imposed, but we assume they were  lor  actual infractions, as tho public health  is a matter of first consideration.   The  fact, then,that the informations against  the actual owners   of 'the   cess   pools  were Jaid by the Captain   himself,   iy-  phen and all included is evidence their  evistence was   infrnnotions'of-the law,  and the Captain simply winked at it,���������  saw the infraction acknowledged it  by  faying informations, and   went away  without taking one   step   towards   enforcing a'corrcction of the   violations.  Now how does the Captain,exuecL others  to ol ey the law in   matters that are in  doubt, when he  himself ignores what  he acknowledges by informations to be  violations. The point is this: When the  Uaptain learned tho violations were on  government, property, why did he   not  see the government was compelled   to  carry   out    regulations   of    its    own  creation, if he   wants   private   parties  to respect the government,  its  officers  or the governmentlaws? This is a plain  proposition and one that   requires   no  Euclid, Algebra or Greek to unravel it.  The question  is   why   did   not   the  Captain, we beg pardon  with  tho   fty-  pncn,  take somo   of   tho   money   he  gobbled in tho town in fines,   and   pay  some one for cleaning up the cesspools  on the government property ?    Is it to  remain a case, of fleece   the  people   as  long as.possible for a rigid  observance  of the law, spend the money in Victoria or elsewhere   in   high   salaries   for  government officials with Captains and  hyphens, and let people here who want  tho   town   to remain   healthy   clean  up tho cess pools for   the   government  at their own expense.   If  this   is   the  rule; the only   cure is to   regard   the  government and its hyphened  officials  as as public cess pool   and   make   one  general clearing out whenever an   opportunity presents itself.  second north fork ot Lemon creek and  directly opposite tu tuwnsito of Lemon  creek.))

They are now in 32 feet,  and the rock is changing, which, Mr.  Schomberg thinks, indicates nearing  the ledge. ���������    '  Martin Markeson has received a  number of samples of fine looking rock  from a location recently made near  the fifth south fork of Lemon creek.

James Taylor who was arrested for  tho murder of Sheriff Byler in Baxter  county, Arkansas, in June 1892, reached the scene of the murder without  delay. When he reached Nelson, Justice Drake read the charge to him, and  it was duly supported by Sheriff L. C.  Smith of that state. Taylor waived extradition, and went along with the  American officers. It appears the  man's name is Hardy, alias Roper,  alias Taylor.  '1 he nature of his offence is this:  The dead shiriff and assistants were  going to arrest him for cattle stealing,  when lie lied and tool: refuge in a  vacant house. He then fired on his  followers through a crack in the building and Sheriff Byler fell mortally  wounded, and died in ��������� a short time  after. Taylor then escaped nnd his  whereabouts were unknown until recently, when he wrote a letter to his  brother on one of the letter heads of '  the Selkirk mine. This fell into the  hands of the o!''ce'rs and led to the 'arrest. ^ It appears it was Sheriff Smith  who identified the man here.  Since reaching His destiny he wrote  to J. A. Smith, of the Selkirk mine  telling him what to do with some effects here. He says he will be able to  clear himself, which h'- will, if he is  not the guilty party. Even if he is, it  may be shown he simply fired on his  followers at random and did not intend  to hit any one, which may be construed into a mitigating circumstance.  Bar-  VIOLENTLY  INSANE.

SUNDOWM FRACTION.  A representative of the News made  a trip to the Sundown Fraction, situated one mile and   a   half   below   the  Astonishing    Story    of    Spanish  barity in Cuba.  The curate of the town of La ' Esperanza," in Santa Claa Province, has sent  the following despatch to the Bishop of  Havana:  "From the first of July all tho stores  and markets in this town have been  closod'by order of the Captain General  In God's nameI beg Your Fxcellency  to implore the Captain General to withdraw his order. Otherwise all the ' inhabitants will die of hunger. Many  have died already." 'The Captain General intends to enforce his decree until  the fortifications are finished around  the town, and I am informed that the  works will not, be finished for twenty  days."  At the same time the Mayor of th'-  town of La Esperanza wrote to the  Governor of the province :  "The whole population is starving.  The resources of the municipality are  exhausted. Hundreds of .women and  children cry despairingly for food and  hundreds have died of hunger. I do  not know what to do under theso horrible circumstances. The order of  General We.yler closing the markets  and forbidding the sale of all kinds of  victuals I cannot disobey. Meanwhile  must 1 contemplate with indifference  the spectacle of the peopJe of La Esperanza dying of the direst calamities ?  I beg from Your Excellency a prompt  answer. Wc have no time to spare if  we are unwilling that everybody should  perish here."  La Esperanza is a town of about  8,000 inhabitants. It has been raided  several times by tho insurgents recently, and to chastise the inhabitants for  not defending the town, General Wey-  ler issued his barbarous decree, under  pretext that the stores and markets attracted the insurgents. What is more  cruel still is the fact that a strong  Spanish column is encamped around  town and the Spanish soldiers are well  provided with food,but stringent orders  are given' to them, under the severest  penalties, not to give any help to the  inhabitants.  The most territ'lc tales of misery  come from the town; Mothers kneeling' before the soldiers, with their  children in their arms, vainly beseech  the heartless Spaniards,for a little food.  Men who attempt to break through  the Spanish lines in order to get into  tho country either to procure food or  joiu the insurgents are immediately  shot. In many cases they have tried  to force a passage throught instead of  getting away by stealth,,but being unarmed the Spanish soldiers easily overpower and slay them. The only hope,  of the population is that the insurgents  may come and rescue them. 'But there  is a very slight prospect of this. The  insurgent bands which raid the town  in July have now moved to the West,  invading the Province ot Matanzas,  and tho Cuban forces near. La Esperanza at this time are too few, to cope,  with the 5,000 Spanish soldiers sent to  the town t>y.General Weyler.  The latest reports from La Esperanza say that a sort, of epidemic madness has been produced by hunger  among the inhabitants, and that they  kill each other and commit suicide  by scores. i  Bartlott Bros, are now packing down  a car or two of ore for the 'Ajax   mine.  Two cars of Ruth and one of Ibex ora  were wrecked on the Oregon short line  a few days ago.       c  The Jackson mine has a double compartment shaft 100 feet deep, and soon  a hoisting plant is to.be installed.  E. J, Field says work on the Wonderful will be pushed more briskly than  ever this fall and winter. Thoy are  making ample preparations for it,  i  For the four weeks ending August  27 the Hall Mines smelter 5,766 tons  of ore which yielded 522 tons of matte  containing approximately 232 tons of  copper, 157,300 ozs. of silver and 215  ozs. of gold.  The Eagle mine, at the head of Sandon creek above the 3Ur was located  in 1892, though but little was done with  it until recently. It is owned by McLaren, of Perth, Ont., W. A. Allan,' of  Ottawa, and E. Watt, who is now in  charge. A few days ago,after the tunnel  has reached 110 feet a lead of 12 feet in  ividth with a satisfactory showing was  met.

London���������The Englishmen now returning from the Klondyke are earnestly warning the public,against an English rush there. "The Klondyke," says  one, "is a lottery. The are now about  one hundred to'one prize."  Yet this man has netted $30,000.  He returns to the gold fields in the  spring. i.      ' ���������*"  The papers begin to warn investors  not to touch the Klondyke companies,'  but' to extend their preference to  Kootenay, where their returns are  sure.  The insurance companies are refusing to insure those going to Klondyke nt any price, unless they are  joining a wcll-pqaipped expedition.  The papers, however, publish advertisements inviting men with ������250  to join an expedition in November by  a short and secret route to the northern  regions. ���������  Weak Point of the Scheme.

In short   the ��������� ore.  .    shipments   we   report   frorh   week   to  week plainly, show this.    The cause of  dullness then  must be traced to some  .other source,". for what  it is.  ��������� In   the  first place it must not'be forgotten that  our . business: places   have ; increased  'numerically very rapidly,   and all can-  ,   not handle as much   as ��������� if they were  fewer, in number, r The great cause of  .   the dullness, such as it is,   arises from  unnecessary', caution.       Many,; think  that 'because   silver is low,   there will  . eventually be a suspension of business,  ,,and. they  should   take. care, of what  '���������  money they have for'a rainy day.  This  . is' ail. pure   imagination,   without' the  ,;; slightest ground for support.' ������������������������������������:.��������� ',  Of course   with silver ; low and no.  assurance as   to where  it is   going to  stop, the same amount  of, new capital  ��������� '  cannot be got into the country for new  enterprises   and    development' work,  .though a wise   business  stroke, is   always to   buy  when   a   commodity, is  <*heap *:'. but the owners   of all present  shippers (and their operation alone   is  enough'to.sustain the town well)   have  ..time and again repeated   they will run  ���������their mines to full capacity  with silver  at 40c,   and even   less.      Should   it  drop even lower than this, there are so  many interests  involved here   that the  mines  will be operated.    Th.e-owners  of" the mines are 'nearly all owners of  town   property   they cannot   afford to  to become   depreciated   in  value   for  , the lack   of employed labors  in' the  ; vicinity.    Then   again: there   are  immense   amounts of money invested   in'  'railways concentrators, smelters, etc.���������  these can,K)t be sacrificed,   when con-  \cessions will keep them in value.    A.ll  of these   would have to come   to  the  rescue, and.dperate at actual cost and  even below it, to keep   the mines running if silver dropped below an otherwise'payingprice.     The   report   that  "mines in Colorado and elsewhere,  are  -suspending operations   because of the  low price   of silver has nothing whatever to do with the matter.    Ourbies  are; of the     highest  grade    in.   the  world, and  consequently   less   expensive   in handling and   treatment   per  ���������yaluc than any other ores in the world.  ���������Our. concentrators,     trams,   etc.   are  be   one   of them.     It is, of 'course, a  fact that it is;indelicate   for any newspaper to criticise closely the merits of  .a,case" after it is :b.efore   a court,' as  that   may tend to prejudice  evidence  ;to be subsequently given and influence  the'result unfairly; but that is all there'  is abput< it.' :  If Forin's   view   of the  'matter, were  carried out--newspapers',  reports of cases   would be very   tame  indeed;   but'then   we do not live   in  China, where newspapers ..reports have  to be submitted to autocratical,authority bjfore they are given to'the public.  The Miner  said,  this was   a   brutal  assault, and.it went on toshov/why it  was  brutal, dealing Vith. the provocation and   the consequences of the   assault, alleging :the assailant  should be  severely punished.    : We. cannot   see  that   the paper exceeded ;its, authority  or  natural license, in   this country,   in.  its comments.  . .Of course,   if it  laid  down   a course  for   the'court, to take  in the: case-,   defining   the -punishment,  it. would have ..as the  judge declared  exceeded ��������� its   proper license,    but we  .cannot sec that it,did.     If-tlie judge's  view limited   tlie scope 'of a paper, all  it could say of any case rio matter liow  sensational,   cruel or brutal, would be  ah   unembellished,recital ,6'f. the facts  which 'would be "Kold Kale", indeed  for   the   appetite,   of    the   newspaper  reader  of .the   present:'day.    In   the  'case   of-.,Wood, who   was   hanged at  Nelson,   all   it   could, say was Paddy  Woods .was.'shot ; it-..was, asserted  j.  Wood   shot him, ' Wood   subsequently  escaped from gaol, he was re-arrested,,  and'would   shortly come  up, for trial.

The  lot  is owned  by Air. Harris, as he jointly, owns  the  rest   of the   townsite.      The. building  had   been   occupied,' and the   tenant  had moved out   arid sold" her right of  -possession, etc.,  to  another  who was  about  to move in.   , While the  house  was vacant,' that is after the one'party  had moved   out,.and   before the other  .moved in, an employee of Mr. Harris,  under instructions, tore it down. ..The  employee   was at   once   arrested   for  house breaking   and   .theft.     At the  trial,, before    the   justices,   they   held  there was not a case against   the prisoner, and ��������� he was forthwith   released.  This shows that an owner may at any  time, while vacant at least, destroy any  building  another party  may erect  or  'endeavor   to control on   his.property..  .There  are   some' who contend that a  mining right does not constitute a valid  title.    Of course, it is not such   a title  as a. straight   Crown grant,   or, as the  Torrens, system would give,, but  it is  one that  deprives   any one else,   at  least,    of the right   of ownership   or  peaceable occupancy,   and we believe  the courts have gone farther in declaring it quite valid.     A mining right enables the owner at any time to-occupy  it for mining purposes,   whether to the  mind of another, there is mineral there  ,or   not, and,   of:course,   this   renders  possession   or, occupancy by   another  without the authority of the party holding the mining right simply'but of the  question.    The   essence'of the whole  matter - is   that if a   party  gets a title  fromcMr. Harris   neither   Crown   nor  any one else can dispossess him or his  assignee,   though   the   law  would not  consider it equal. to   either, a-'crown  patent or a Torrens'deed.  It is a "moral certainty, that many.,a  one now going;to the Klondyke, who,  if''thoy'return, at all, will return 'in disgust.

Our issue of the 26th of  June contained  an article which went  quite fully   into   tlie   matter, and  .advanced practically all   the   arguments  th.':   i an be advanced    in   its   favor.  They   of course can  be   hashed   and  re-hashed and manufactured into.many  more.      The.  substance  then   is   that  Canada lias lost   nearly a  million dollars on the eighteen or twenty millions  of American gold now circulating and  held by the banks and treasury of the  country j that we have lost correspond  ingly on   the silver   and   copper coin  minted in the   old country :   and   thai  wc have suffered   to be  transferred to  the   United States  and  Great Britain  all the labor and all the advantages of  labor employed in the coining.

David  Mills, and ''some, recent utterances:,by  him to'" a 'reporter of the-'London' Advertiser are decidedly interesting.    He  said,that if   and   when  the   Alaskan  boundary.is properly "drawn Canadians,  will have'plenty, of-access to tho Klondyke via tho   Pacific ocean   and  the  Yukon.   Dyea, for instance, he claims,  is   in    Canadian   territory;    and    he  strongly advocates  the' route, through  Lynn inlet,"which,  he argues, Ties almost wholly within Canadian,territory.  '���������Prom   the headwaters of the inlet to  the headwaters of some, of the ' trib'u-  larieo of the Yukon,  a   short .railway  stretch   of 50 or 60-miles,   established  either through Chilcoot or White, Pass,  would  bo the  only railway  construction required-,'-" ho say^-, "and   the construction of such a route would require  an   expenditure of .'a  very   moderate  amount of'money, and would give people df'siring to go to that district an easy  and  comparatively cheap   highway."  The basis of. his>oiiteu,tion:is.-that tho  bonndary'does not properly follow  all  the. windings  of the shore,' but  only  does  so   when -"no coast, line''   intervenes.     He'goes very  fully  into  the  question from the d.ays.of-Russian possession down, quoting the treaty clause  in oxtenso. ������������������'' The ��������� treat}' makes  ''the  summit of the mountains situated parallel to the coast" , the  boundary   line  from where  it strikes  the  5Gl,h degree  of north latitude on the mainland until it intorsects  the" 1-llst degree, west  hingitude which it follows to theA'-ctic.  Another explanatory clause . is "added  in   which 'it   declares,' among   other  things,  that  wherever" the summit of  the coast line  "'shall, prove to be at-tirj  distance 'of   more    than   tcti   marine  ���������leagues  from  the ocean',   tho limit between  the British possessions and tlie  line of coast,   which' is   to belong  to  Russia, as above mentioned,   shall be  formed by a lino parallel   to tho windings   of the   coast,   and which   shall  never exceed  the distance of, ten  mar-  inr   leagues   therefrom."     Now,   Mr.  -Mills  argues that  it was   clearly   the  intention or the treaty to adhere to the  coast lino  wherever  there was   such a  thing, no ni'itter if it crossed inlets or  not.   Tho Russians, ho points out, only  wanted fishing rights 011 the coast, and  so woro not likely to stand out  for the  right  to  go behind   fho coast lino   at  any place.   Now Lynn inlet   is crossed  by   a  range of   mountains   near   tho  coast, known as Sr.. Blias' Alps,   whic  contains  'a number of peaks   ranging  from 10,000 to, 10,000 feet high.   There  are   a   number'of   other    inlets    in J  the   same -position,    and     he   insists  (hat   they   are   all ' "Canadian  waters  lying in   Canadian, boundaries."���������Yan-  couvoi World.  ��������� . ^CjJflBtt��������� ���������t-t :.������������������  '  The; Engineering and Mining Journal  says': .On July 27th the Dominion cabinet decided   to,demand   a  royalty   on  the, output  of the--now. digging  of'the.

Heartily' shaking ' hands  with those'asseniblcd  in  the   balloon-  house, and nodding to  the   astonished  trappers who. stood   watching,   he   addressed   warm,   deeply-felt   words   of  f-hnnks to all   those   whose   hands   he  could not rcach,owing to thdirinabilitv  to leave their post.    With sturdy handshakes Fraenkel  and   Strindberg'  also  took thcirleavo.   Strindberg -appeared  to be deeply moved,   and , indeed   the  solemnity of the moment impressed-all  spectators;   Then Andree called nloiid,  "Fraenkel i     Strindberg?"      Standing  in'the. car, the throe severed .the   thin  ropes holding them,  Andree. counting  one, two, three.    At tluoe the hist cord  . blinding them to the 'flour ol the' tower  fell, n way.  Proudly and majestically the balloon  rose, passing directly, through'the open  northern portion of its former dwelling. Andree gazed-with '-'happy. ...confidence, on.those who remained behind,-  and then, he and his comrades waving  their caps, he cried out, "Greetings at  home to Sweden." Those who had- a  'photographing apparatus'took yet another snap-shot. Turning to the shore,  we all saw.the balloon floating some  1K1 feet above, the water. .A . moment  of intense anxiety followed, for the  balloon was driving right .onto a jutting  prominence of rock on the east side of  Smcerenburg Sound and threatened to  collide with it. Suddenly, however, a  gust  of wind  coming  through    tho  The recent assassinationsin   Europe  of prominent personages..have,.brought  hack to. many the recollection   of. the  assassination   of; Presidents ' Lincoln  and Garfied.- :,-In a recent issue of  the  New York  Sun' there   have   appeared  letters iisking if there were not   many  people still living who, saw   Abraham  Lincoln assassinated, and have   revealed the whereabouts, of several: '..Among  them is James 2v Mill's,   of ...Brooklyn,.  "I was born in Brooklyn in 1845," said  Mr. Mills'recchtly, "so that at the' outbreak of the war I'.was under ,10 'years  ;6f age.-   I' wanted, te go;t6the front :'as  a.drummer boy, but when Fapplied to.  the,'officers..of��������� a 'regiment:, called , the  'Brooklyn Phalanx,'  afterward  known  as'the First, Long   Island. Regiment,  ���������they'dbld meT was'too' young.   I after  wards made my  way   to   Washington;  -without my'mother's consent aiid; enlisted as a: drummer -boy'-, in TS62.   ��������� I  served in the Army of the Potomac for  three years/ and   during   the   closing  day's of the war was clerk in; the   War  Department.'" Oh the night of .the" assassination of President Lincoln  I   attended the theatre to.see.Laura Ke.eiie  in 'Our American Cousin.' The theatre  was packed.   There must   have- been  2,000 people in the   house,   every   one  desirous of seeing' the   President  and  General Graiit,who,were expected to be  present.   After the. President took   bis  seat in the box and the cheering ceased,  the crowd was absolutely still.   I   can  only account for their' silence by' the  fact that it was a cosmopolitan  crowd,  representing   about' 'every . regiment  located near Washington,  and including'travellers from every Statp in   the  Union.   Gen. Grant did not attend, and  Mr. Lincoln, accompanied by Mrs. Lincoln and Colnel Bathbone, of the United  States army, niade up   the Presidental  party.   Thoy occupied   the   righthand  box on the dress circle.   The third act  of the   play   had', begun,   and 'Harry  iTawk,tim actor in the   company,' had  just appeared on the   stage,   from   the  left, when there was the   report   of  a  pistol shot.   'Looking over at the. President's box, I saw a man  standing  and  gesticulating at   the   occupants;.    An  instant-later the man jumped from,the  box. to the stage, turned;(looked at the  audience, and then  disappeared.:.   He  muttered, something as he   looked   at  the audience, but! have   never   been  able to recall just what, he said.     .Instantly .the-audience arose us if  spellbound, the whisperings of a   moment  before became a   roar  of   voices,   and  when it had dawned upon the audience  that the .President had been assassinated, tho confusion was indescribable.   I  made my way .to the head of the stairs  as-quickly ns the crowded condition of  the house would permit, and,   passing  out into Tenth street, gave   the   alarm  to the provost guards.     Those-guards,  by   the   way,   were- stationed   at   all  theatres    for   examine, the   passes of  soldiers in uniform w  o   were   in   the  city after nightfall. ' The guard Isnoke  to ran around to the. alley   entrance  of  the theatre on F street and entered tin;  backdoor.    I returned to the   front   of  the thealro nnd made my ' way   to  liie  dress, circle,and to the box of the Presidental p..rty just as. Mr. 'Lincoln   was  being carried out. on tho   shoulders  .of  two men.    One of these,  was   the   pro-,  prietor   of   a   sald'in     adjoining    the  theatre.    He was in his shirt 'sleeves,  the head of Mr. Lincoln'resting on  his  shoulder and the blood trickling   down  the sleeves and the buck of  his   shirt.  The President was carried down   stairs !  anil across the street into   Mrs.  Tetci-j  son's boarding house, dir c(.|y. oppusitei  the lln-atre.    As Airs. Lincoln . was.   foi":  the moment without an eSt'ort, I jeii'tiv I  grasped her arm and led her  from   ti.e!  box.    She was nearly hysterical, crying j'  nnd sulduin,' bitterly.
