Exist In ; South  Eastern, Kootenay:
The, Rickest Seams in the World--Kow
������"   They Were Discovered.
ylf we except the Pennsylvania!! coa
fields, the coal,deposits in South   East
;'Kootenay are the largest and   richest
;.; in the whole known world.   There,may
,    be larger areas of coal landst but nunc
so wealthy.   This immense coal   land
is in Southeast' Kootenay, in (.he. Fort
;.-'., Steele mining division, and its deposits
,   j are sometimes" known   as,  the   Crow's
Nest Pass coal fields  from  their   close
'proximity' to that  celebrated   pass   in
,    the Rooky Mountains  through   which
the C; P. It. is   now   constructing    the
; Crow's -Nest Pass railway   to   open   up
',.;��� the, Southern/district in East and West
"Kootenay.   The coa! lands iii.'in  close!
proximity to tho,western slope  of  tlie
Iroeky Mountains and are'.'."mainly'  be--
;���������?��� tween that range Of mountains and the
Koqtehay river.' They   extend . south-
-<ward from the Bull river down to   near
the Tobacco plains close on to  the ;in-
tern.��tionaIboundary.     Some   ofy the,
richest seams are in the' base   of   the
Elk river and its tributaries.    Coal de-
��� posits however, exist west of theKoofe-
,'���'.- nay in sections near the St."Mary's, and
Moyle rivers, and prospecting Tor coal
is nowgoingon in that neighborhood;
The great coal deposits of which so
much has been written and said,- belonged to a syndicate of men who were
,, the discoverers, and were instrumental
in obtaining the   construction   of   the
.--. railway through   Southeast   Kootenay
'"���' into West Kootenay, and thus opening,
up this immense territory.* The coal
lands are now controlled by the C.T.R,
and certain companies who will  work
'���' ..the coal deposits as' soon as railway-
communication will permit, y The dis-
'- eovery, of these was . the result, as a
great many discoveries are, of  chance.
��� They were dis covered while Mr. Wm.
Fernie, one of the original syndicate,
tvas gold  commissioner in   the   Wild
Horse Creek district./ There   was ,'ho
Fort Steele 'in   those   days,   and'', Mr.
Fernie's  jurisdiction   'extended   :rover
, both of thevKootehays.   lie ;held   the
post, in 1881,,'S2 and 'S3 and dnring.his
regime a trail  was   constructed   from
the Wild Horse to MeLeod through the
Crow's Nest Pass.   The tr til-took some
3 or 4 years to construct.     The excitement for placer mining had ..not.   then
quite died awiy"and a little prospecting was occasionally done.   Iu the'bed
of one of the creeks, one   of   the   trail
constructors found what  wa?   thought
to be black s md, a sand supposed'to be
rich iii gold...   There was a disappointment when it was found that this sand
contained no gold, but it   was   a  rich
sand nevertheless.    It was  erosions or
rubbings from coal   washed   down   by
the stream, which  meant   there   were
. coal seams 'somewhere.     As the   con-
-struction of the. trail   proceeded,   out-
croppings of coal were   found.     These
discoveries were reported to   the   gold
commissioner, but  nothing  was   done
for some years.   It was  not until   the
year 1S87 that Mr. Fernie,  along  with
associates, commenced prospecting for
coal.   The result of their  labors   were
that   they   discovered   immense   coal
field, extending from' the Crow's   Nest
Pass right  down  thet Elk   river,   a d
covering an area of not less   than   144
square miles.    These  coal   fields have
been visited and reported upon by  Dr.
S.elwyn, Ci'M. G., late  director of   the
Geological .Survey   of   Canada,    who
makes the calculation that   there   aro
49,05*2,000 tons per squro  mile.     Even
if one half of*. this is available there are
in each  square  mile   24,970,000   tons.
In reality inexhaustible.    These   coul
lands are about the same   altitude   as
the Canmore and Banff coal   fields   in
Alberiy-.on   the  eastern   side   of   the
Rookies, namely between four and live
thousand feet.   The  first great   series.
of coal seams are not far from the west
end of the Crow's Nest Pass and arc between Martin creek,and Michael creek,
northern tributaries of the   Elk   river.
Here there are   no   less   than   twenty
seams of coal. They are seen one a hove
tlie other,  the out,crops   being   quite
visible, stretching through gulches and
along ridges right up  to   the   summit.
Fourteen of the scams arc canncl coal.
Three_of them,   the   Peter   seam,   the
William's S'-ani and the Jubilee seam,
so nampd from having been discovered
on the 22nd  of  June,'  18S7,   tlie   first
jubilee of Her Majesty, are respectively
1?, 20 and  30   lest   wide.     The   total
width of the seams is 132  feet.     After
leaving these seams, and some distance
away, there is another seam about four
miles up Coar creek, another tributary
of the Elk river, near the mouth   of   a
steep rock gulley.   This is a fine scam
and is seven feet thick.   The next great
series of seams are   in   the   Elk   rivsr
valley, about seven   miles   from   Coal
creek.   The first seam   is   about   1500
feet up the mountain upon tho top of
a broken down cliff of  massive   sand
<v.    ��� -. / .-       ���'-.--.,  ���.;������.-������. '";':-.  ."..'..-
stone.:   This seam is from 25 to 30' feet
thick with'a slate parting about 'two
feet: High er up, about 130 feet, on -a
similar broken down cliff of massive,
sandstone, is another erect seam of . 30
feet thick'., Then in close succession,
notmore thau'lOO -feet! apart,- are ten.
other seams, three of'which are ,10, 15
and 30 feet thick." The total thickness
of the twelve seams is 148 feet of coal
as against 132 in Martin creek area.
.Tlie immensity of these coal fields is
.scarcely known. The, foregoing' is a
���very rough and-general description of
tne deposits, near the Crow's Nest Pass
in the basin'of. the Elk river. ��� Many
ot, th'e'seams are-first class coking coals
and others are good gas coal, but none
of them 80 far as known are anthracites. The coal has been analyszed by
Mr. G. C. Hoffman, F: I. C, chemist
and mineralogist of the Geological Surrey of Canada. The sum and conclusion of his report is : .
���,"lt,yields by slow coking, a bulky,
coherent, highly vcsiculiir coke,, by,
fast coking, a linn! and lustrous coke in
concentric layers, in which the form
of the. particles of coal from.... which it
lias been derived ; is entirely- obliber-
ntcci, and .of about, the same, or if any-,
thing less, bulk, than' the original ;eoa].
When-heated in a crucible, it produces
a very large amount of gases which
burn -with a yellow, luminous, . very
smoky flame.- Color of the; ash. pale
red dish-white,, when .! exposed to .<).
bright red heat it ��� remains: unaffected,
at u-most intense red- heat it becomes
slightly sintered.
This material constitutes ,.an .excellent gas coal, not only by reasoirof the
large amount of volatile combustible
matter it is capable of '���.affording,- in
which respect it is superior to,, a very,
large number of cannal coals, .'which
are employed for gas-making, but also
��� froi\i the fact that this . would appear
to be of superior quality, for illuminating purposes."
,'It.will thus be seen that an excellent
coke, vcrv low in ash can be produced,/
a coke not excelled byjany other, made
on the oontipent. Whon large smelt-:
ing works are erected in East Kootenay
this fuer supply will be a valuable
factor in the smelting of the ore' not

Does Not Half Like the Franco-Russian
: Alliance.        '
Berlin, Aug. 28.���Tho visit of Pre'si-
dsnt Faure to Russia has been very
ealm'ly commented on in Berlin, though
there is a distinct undercurrent of un-
easinessi which tends to show that the
newspapers' do not, believe what they
aro printing on the subject. The opinion is expressed, however, that the czar
has again made it plain to France that
Russia, cannot be dragged into following the policy of Revanche, and the
conviction becomes all the'more widespread, as it,is understood that, pressed
in every quarter, France, will relinquish the idea of revenge upon Germany, and the re-conquest ol .Alsace-
Lorraine, and will gradually become
more friendly .-to Germany. Doubtless,
however, the wish in this case is father
to the thought.     " ., ���
There is a decided coolness between
the emperor and the king of Saxony.
���The emperor blames King, Albert' for-
the kilter's recent '.- decision in the
Schoumberg-Lippe succession case as
calculated to destroy the belief in the
divine-right theory. Because of this
coolness, King Albert has refused to be
present at the. army manoaiivers next
month, and has accepted the invitation
of Francis Joseph of Austria to witness
the army maneuvers in Hungary.
Terrible Condition   of White Pass,
SanFranoisco,Cal. Aug. 2S.���Thomas
McGce, sr., who is on route to the
Klondyke Gold Fields with a party of
San Franciscans, writes, to the Associated Press from Lake Bennett under
date of Aug. 15, confirming the previous reports ofthe terrible condition of
the Whito pass trail from Skagway and
telling ofthe almost insurmountable
difficulties to be encountered by the
gold hunters, ..who prefer that route to
the more formidable Chilcott pass
route. McGoc thinks that the majority
of tho crowd now at Skug.vay aiid Dyea
will'have- to abandon all hope of getting into the Yukon country this.ypiu*
and is certain that late comers will
have no chance of doing so. He also
deplores the fact that so many would-
be prospectors seem. to overlook the
fact that onco started from, 'Dyea or
Skagway food and other supplies are
not to be purchased for love or money,
as no one has any more than he neeus
fpr himself. He thinks that,75 pounds
is about the right amount for each
man, but says that hundreds are starting out with less than half of that
amount, and predicts disaster.
,.,'��� Scot McDonald,manager of the'Payne
mine has been  talking  on -the   silver
situation and its bearing on   this ;p.*irt
of. the   Kootenay.     The   Spokesmitn-
Review has the loiiowiiig based on -.Mr.
McDonald's remark's: ,'''���'".. ,   *" ,
.   "The   decline .cl'y silver    naturally
makes the silver miners of. the  Slocan
feel n little blue," said.a  mining   man
from th it district yesterday', "but th'oy
are keeping a stiff tipper lip, as a  rule,'
and fortunately there arc n-iany  mines
in that district that.can afford ,to, sliip
oven  though   silver   go 'much   lower.
Some.of them are quite  cheerful   over
the outlook, and  do  not  seem   to   be
'downcast    on   account   of   the   rapid
slums in the price o*'_ the   white metal.
Scoi. McDonald, of the Payne mine,'  is
one of these. - Of courso he  deprecates
the loss which the decline   necessarily
causes, but he says tlie Payne will con.
tinuo to  ship   without   a .thought   of
stopping until silver reaches 25   cenfSj
and will make  a. profit   at   any   prion
above I. -t figure. . The conditions   are
better in the district  than   they   -were
last year.   Freight is   less   and   treatment  oharges   are' rediiccd;   together
making a savin;/*.<,which may safelj    be
estimated at S2 over   last    year.     Improved wagon   roads to   most   of   the"
mines as well as the  establishment of
concentrators oh some of the big ones
tend to add to the profit of the  miner,
and make up in some  degree   for   the
rapid decline of the urodiict.    Lead-  is
now quoted above 83.60, and deducting
tlie duty ol'Si'.yO. the net, price  to   the
Canadian mine   operator.. is. *i>2.10.   It.
will, be seen that the  -mirror' is,, better
off with the high tarifi'at the advanced
price than with low duty and low market.    Tlie Slocan mine owners may get
the blues and complain about the   loss
of pro lit.'und it existing conditions,' but
it is* safe to say that they willgo ahead
mining .did,shipping their, ore   unless
conditions ari.����.* that are not not apprehended." ,""'���'...���,
Director of French Mint Has
��� ' Exhaustive Research.
M. de Foville, director of the French
mint, has published a report of the
world's production of gold and silver,
Like-preceding investigators he divides
the history info four unequal periods.
Tho first, ends wilh the middle ages,
and is of purely historical interest. In
fifteenth century Europe possessed a
slender stock of gold and silver, whoso
total has been,usually estimated atone
thousand millions of francs���^$200,000,-
000. The second period begins with
the discovery of A'merica and'closes in
the middle of the present.century ; 'ho
third extends from 1S50 to 1875, comprising the third quarter of the century, in the fourth* beginning in 1875,
extends to the present time. In constructing an approximately accurate
table of the production of gold and . silver during the 402 years which 'have
elapsed hetween the date of  discovery
of America and .the'; last year   of" complete returns^���lS%-~it- is.    evidently
necessary  that ,some   uniform   terms
should' be used; both  of. quantity and
value.   The   director.-'"of  the   French
mint favors the usuiil. standard of eom-
parisonof 155  to   ly  estimating   the
value of each kilogramme  of: gold   at
3,444 fr. 44 cent.,   arid   of  .each   kilogramme of silver at 222 fr. 22 cent;"'. A
kilogramme, it.mn-y.be noted, is  equal
lo.'2.6S03 pounds, or 32.10 ounces  troy.
, Beginning with the   period  between
1493 and 1S50,  comprising , 358 , years,
lie finds that the   total, production   of
gold was 4,752,070 kilogrammes, valued-
at ���6'.3GS,2p(J,Ci.P0 francs;, and ' of  silver
149,826,750' kilos, valued at   33,204,SOO,y
000 francs..  The average   annual   production ,of  gold,   whichybegiiis   with
2,S00:kilos; reaches at"the  end: of  the
period 54,759 kilos, while the' animal
production of siyleivwhich begins' with
47,000 kilos, closes with   780,315   kilogrammes.   But, while at the. beginning
of the period, the. average annual value
,of the production of gold is double lhal
of.silver product would havo-'-ben very
much   the   greater.    ,,In   the."   second
period--l'Sol to   1S75���  is"' reached'' a
time in, which   the 'gold, production
groatly exceeded in value that\of  sii-
vi-r, except as to the.one or two,.years
with which it  closes.     Between   l'SSG
1S50 the average annual   of  gold   production was 201,7,'jO'  kilos;   valued   at
094,900,000 Varies; nnd ofsilv'e'r 904,990'
kilos,-valued at. 201.100,000 francs. Por
the/entire   period., the. production, -of
gold was 4,775,625���kilos, valued  at K>,-
449,400,000'francs, or. a, little'- oyer';, the
entire value of the 35S years.    : Of   the
73,000,000.600 francs of gold and   silver
produced 1493 and 1S75. y South America yielded 20,000,000,000.������' Mexico   18,--
000,000,000 and the United St ites 8,000,-
000,000; the contribution' of. sbc'./New
���World amounting in all tp 53i000,000,
000 francs. ���
In-the.'poriod between 1S76 and 1S95
there is a steady increase in   the   production of'silver,-accompanied   by   a
temporary .decrease, of the   gold   pro-'
duct from its highest-pointy which was
followed by a rapid increase to  figures
greatly'iii excess, even of those 'reached
during the early days of the Australian
and California discoveries.      As   compared with.l87Gy the productioa of gold
in lS95;Was twice as great, -while  that
of silver had .-increased, in   times. .   In
the 402 years over which   this   revi'��w
extends,' it   appears  that   there   'nave
been.produced 45.000,000,000 francs   in
gold and 55,000,000,000 francs in silver,
making for the whole period  an   average of our   time,- ss   compared   with
those of previous  centuries,   show   an
extraordinary rate of progression.   For
example,!the average   annual   product
of the sixteenth century was S0.000,000
francs, that of the'seventeenth 115,000,-
000, and of the   cigtcenth   193,000,000
friuics.-" Por the. first .half of the   nineteenth century the annual   production
of both metals averaged about 22/',000,-
060 francs, but for the twenty-five years
following, between lS51and 1S75, there
is a leap to the annual average of 930,-
000,000 francs, tw'o-thirds of which was
in gold.    But even tho average   is   exceeded between 1870 and 1885. in which
ten-years, however, the  production   ol"
silver reaches a nominal   value,  about,
equal to that .of gold.'  Since  1S90   the
increase in the  annual   production   of
the precious metals has been still mon-
rapid than in the ten years, preceding.
The average between 1SS0 and 1890 was
1,840,000,000.francs, and   during  these
five years the course of progression has
been so rapid that we pass from a gold
product in 1891 of 077,000.000 francs to
one of.1,030,000,000   francs   in   1S95,
while of silver the   annual  production
lias advanced from   939'000,000   francs
of nominal value in 1S91  to.'.1,144,000;-
000 francs in 1S95, ���ihe   production   of
tne precious metals between, 1851  and
1S05   being   almost exactly  equal   to
that of    the   whole   preceding   period
since tlie discovery of America.

An "eye that never sleeps" from the'
Western-  States,  has   been ,. hovering,
around Sandon'for some time,past,'and'
the arrest of John Taylor, cook 'in  the
Selkirk mine about   two   mile's ��� from

business.   Like the Arab, be folded his
tent and   departed  hurriedly -without
anyone knowing "whence he   cometh
or .whether he goeth," but the arrest on
Thursday last isan apparent explanation
for the mystery surrounding the visit of
the mysterious man.,  Taylor is a man '
about 35 years of age,   with   rather ii .
light complexion but black moustache
and grey eyes.   He stands about* feet
7 inches   high,, and   weighs   probably
145 pounds.   He  has   worked, around
Sandon for some months past, the , lat*;',

.'endorsed,by Judge.McAdaixi, of!Nelson, -
asking him to arrest   John  Taylor for
shooting a sheriff  in   Arkansas, .some   ���
four years ago who was going to  arrest,
birri for cattle stealing.   But very little-
was learned of Taylor's ��� history ;while
here. : He put in his time the same, as
other men.of his class, and   said   but ,
little about himself, faut.genorally gave "
out he was the owner   of a .ranch   in

Coming down,: however,   he   made/:

.Victoria, Aug. 27- ��� James Dean,
from Queen Charlotte island, reports
depredations by American smugglers
there. At one of the Indian villages,
when the. people were away for the
season's fishing, the, Yankees landed
and stole the whole of the growing crop
of potatoes and sold them iii Juneau.
Tht-so smugglers, on an other occasion,
boldly opened a store ainong the
Indians of another part of the island
and sold (hem good* smuggled in,from
the United States. Cattle killing and

From Edmonton   to Yukon.
Mr. C. N. Bell, secretary of tlie Winnipeg board of trade, received n telegram from the deputy minister of the
interior informing him officially of the
government's intention to send a small
detachment of police noithward from
Edmonton, to Yukon, for the purpose
of investigating the -feasibility of a
[inck -trail or wagon road overland.
The. police will be accompanied by two
representatives of the Edmonton Board
of Trade. The telegram does not make
any reference'to the government's in
tendon to bear a share of these civilians ; but in the meantime they are
receiving financial aid from the
merchants of Edmonton ai.d some of
the wholesale merchants of Winnipeg.
The party will return during the winter
and'report to the minister of tho interior.
A correspondent writes to the Engineering and Mining Journal asking it to
vigorously raise its voice against the
numerous swindles being worked with '
the aid of.the Klondyke excitement.
The. New York papers of .Sunday contained numerous invitations to subscribe to the stock of companies, and
syndicates formed and forming for the
alleged purpose of doing something or
other in the Klondyke. Thousands
and millions are promised -investors.
The columns of Chicago papers contain dozens Of similar advertisements.
All over the Central, West and East
the same thing is observable, and there
is good reason to believe the general
public is pouring in its moitey, in individual driblets, that aggregate a
large whole. Probably not one in ��� a
hundred of these companies, so called, ���
has any intention of sending anybody
to Alaska. The purpose of the promoters is simply to gather a I'ew thousands by means of a, cheap, vulgar
swindle. Getting as much money as
possible, they will vanish.
The "stockholders" in the concern,
actuated by better faith, will fare no
better. The ground is placer ground
and rich. If a new comer should in
the brief period of possible prospecting
locate anything good human ' nature
wi-i have to change, and history is a
lie if stockholders ever get their share.
Rich placer bars always'were and al- ,
ways will be. an individual mining
proposition. No one has found t'_e
source of the Alaska gold. No
will hunt very hard for it until
bars are washed out.

In the judiciary and probity of the  courts too there is no comparison between die conditions of things on,both  sides of the line.

While  many towns in the country have traces  of contagious diseases, Sandon   is entirely free from them,   fever   being almost   unheard of.    The   soil  of   this  country is very porous, and water readily percolates through it, and as readily  picks up.'any impurities in the soil met  with in its way.;  This is   the cause  of  the fever at Slocan City, which we are  happy to say is now well under cont'ol.

The women then returned to McDonald, and dumped the slack, that had  been loaded, from the- oars.

Isn't this the toughest town in the United States ?   A few  '���������;���������'������������������ comparisons   -will   prove    that   it.  is;  Murder is a commonplace and suicide  ,     a  conventional  there. ,  To 'rival   the  tethal record of this wild 'western .town  : :   there, would have to he 200,000 persons  '    murdered, self killed or otherwise violently  put to death overy three and a  ���������! half years in New York state.    Coni-  // paring the murder arid suicide figures  given by Coroner Mariow with those of  the 'United States   the result- is even  ,; ! more startling.   There were about 8,00,0  murders in the country last year.   The  'total population of the United States  ,is aboiiti 75,000,000.   'ihe murder rate,  '.'.';! therefore, is .ibout S.l 25 of the population per.''annum, i Cripple Creek's murder rate: is-ll in-5,000 annually.   At  V'the killing pace set ''in;.-this !

At the   Cripple  Creek rate of 13 suicides per year in a  -���������- population of 5,000 the annual number  of suicides in'theUnited States  would  . .'��������� be about 169,000.

Only from a strong sense of duty and  desire to! serve the Dominion   Government, in giving the   newgold   mining  territory a great start, did Major Walsh  consent to   become   administrator   of  tlie Yukon, says  the. London   Advertiser.   It is a most appropriate appointment. ':;���������'.��������� Major'  Walsh'   served-   the  ���������Dominion as head   of  the   Northwest  Mounted Police at the time when Hon,  David Mills was Minister of the Inter-  ior. ,.Sena tor-Mills infea-rrisus , that.' he  proved a most capable officer, and   did  splendid bervice for the Dominion at a  criti'cal time   in  'the 'history ������of   our  Northwest Territories/ Sitting Bull, it  will be remembered, led a, iargc :, body  of.his Sioux- braves ' into   the. -North-'-  west, ������nd the incursion did a great .deal;  towards.decreasing the means   of  subsistence, on . the   plains! availnble   for  Canadian tribes/; In dealing with   Sitting'   Bull   and   his   followers,   Major  Walsh, exhibited great pluck and, skill'  and pre-vented this, country! from  drifting into an Indian war.   The   intrepid  Major, was.in fact, tbe chief instrument:  in ridding Canadian territory of Sitting  Bull anddiis,troublesome retinue.   His  cpura,ge, prudence and good sense   secured  peace  for   the .Northwest   and  saved the country very  large, expenditures that would have beeri' necessary  had hostilitie*' spread.

If anyon'ei'oolisiy attempts  to.evade thelaws Of the land Or causes,  disorder, he will find that he will  have  to reckon with 'a, firm'   administrator,'  backed by the whole, people.

Five   Claims   Which   are   Said to: Run1  ��������� "���������'���������    iiigh in Value.  News of a find, which appears to be  of considerable importance, comes from  Canyon creek. There are live claims  in the group recorded under the names  oi' Silver tfill, Simcoe, North Fork,  G reen Grown, and S .ifcN.Fraction. Th e  main lead, running through the Silver  Hill, is said to show a, width of .20  inches and: a pay streak of 16 inches.  An assay from it gave a result of  410 ounces of silver; Sl!10 in gold ;  30 per cent, lead and 11J per cent.  coppe*\*,. The ledge is in slate, dips to  tbe west, and is said to be uncovered  for a distance of 1900 feet. The claims  were located on June 19th by E. Todd,  Mike .Johnson, G. C. Sprig, L. L. Workman and Kand McDonald.  There was presented at the Treasury  Department at Washington a few days  since for redemption two $1,000,7-30  notes of the issiie of'June' 15, 1SG5. The  presentation was made I13' a business  firm of Louisville Ivy. Upou examination the notes were found.to be counterfeit note's which appeared in the  principal bond markets about 1S65 and  1867. The-imitation of the genuine is  so complete that many of the principal  dealers in United States securities purchased them freely'and only discovered that they had been victimized when  the notes were thrown out 03* .the  authorities at Washington; The loss  to bankers and dealers through this  counterfeit amounted probably fo  several thousand dollars. The onl3r  marked difference betwelen the original  and counterfeit is found in the,,,red  seal, the points surrounding the seal in  the genuine being broader, more clearly' defined and,not so long. There is  also -n. small spot just below the bar between the baskets'of the balance whieh  the figure of America hold suspended.  ���������At-the secret service bureau it is said  that the plate from which these notes  were printed was captured1 November.  21^1867,^0111 William 'Ay Brock way,  who is now serving a term of ten years  in Trenton, N J., penitentiary, for  counterfeiting "?500 gold certificates.  ���������������������������" /.FOR OVER FIFTY YEARS.:      ,!

The New York Mail says : President  McKinley's determination to establish  a military post in Alaska and garrison  it with a company of regular troops as  soon as actual eonditlons make it necessary, is altogether pntisworthy. The  troops will serve simply as an auxiliary  to the civil authorities in upholding  the law and providing prolection for  life and property, and their functions  will be practically the same as those  of the Canadian Mounted police, now  Madrid, Aug. 27.���������Senor Sagasta, tbe  Liberal leadei*,lias made a fresh declaration on the political situation. ,He says  it is daily 'growing worse in Cuba and  continues serious in the Philippine  islands.

Ho then  'fled,,'and'a, warrant is now out for his  arrest, but so far hois non est comati-  bus though Constable Lloyd is reach-  , ing after him.,    ,  It was thought by some that, an interesting police case and, perhaps, litigation in the higher courts, was'likely  to grow out of the tearing down of that  log building on Slocan Star street ..last  week,from the vigor ofthe commencement, with arrests and rumors of more.  The case came before Justices McArthur and Sandila.nds on Monday, and  was dismissed by them,for the want of  evidence to make a case.  ;'. The first-car load >uf ore, under the"  new management, is now being packed  down from the Ajax mine -and will be  shipped Monday next. This carload  has been taken out from development  work only. Considerable work is being  done: The mine is improving rapidly  and has every appearance of soon being  one of the leading mint s in the camp.  Mr. E. Wallace-,deserves credit for,his  push aud energy-, We predict a bright  future for lhe Ajax under his management. '"���������.",  Eli Sutclifl'e had a bold adventure  ���������the other day he will not soon forget.  He and Mr. J. A. Smith were out in the  ! hills hunting for the filthy lucre, when  he felt his feet going from under him.  Like the proverbial drowning man, he  grasped at a straw, and hung on to a,  slender branch till Mr. Smith caught  him by the hair as the branch caught  Absalom of old, and pulled him up on  terra (irma. It was a case of "Git  there Eli," and he got there.  The coast papers are not doing their  own province justice. At the present  time they are saying ten words for the  K-iuiidyke for one thoy are saying for,  the Kootenay, merely because their  business men are selling outfits to  Klondykers. This is hardly iair.  Apart from the gold, in mining,' there  are other matters   to remember���������the  ,safety of the miner, from destruction  in many ways. In. the Kootenay  miners have as good law  and order as  /are to be found anywhere and as good  a climate as chore is under the sun,  with chances for wealth well up here;  then there,is every manner of hardship and privation, wi'.h success in  mining limited to but a few out there.  ' J. K. M/Iniies, journalist of Regina,  and brother of the Messrs. Mclnnes,  hotelkecpers of this town,, spent some  days visiting, on a trip through the  Kootenay. He was 'surprised at the  size of th' place and the number of  first-class buildings here in contradiction of the reports he had heard. Mr.  Mclnnis was Divin's last opponent in  their constituency, for tho Commons,  and after a recount, they, were declared  equal at the polls by the judge, the  returning officer giving the seat to  Davin. A protest follo'wed and then  the'government arranged a saw-off of  protests by which Mclnnes is debarred  from further, proceedings, his petitioner! being bought ofl* with a government job. Mr. Mclnnes feels very sore  over the turn of events and naturally  declares���������what all sensible men know  ���������that polities are rotten.  ing is lilted up with,(ill the latest appliances.for heafing,'liglit,ing(i and _ lire  protection.

Star Pointer Breaks the World's Record  Yesterday . at Readville.  ,'An important discovery has recently(  been made at the Selkirk mine Some  time ago a vein of, what was considered  much sonseriuenco was discovered on  that iiiine- and traced across , tn the  Omega Fraction close ,,iy!".-The Selkirk  Co , or rather -Messrs'.-J. A. Smith. M'.L.  Grimsnett, F. Golden and others, then  height the latter-and under development' they have struck a vein of two  feet,of solid ore, which assays' 150 ozs.  of silver and 70 per ce.ti't. lead. The  Co. have now. a good torce of men at  work on the property-and will he ship-,  ping within a month. A; more extended notice of the mine will appear  in our next issue    -  Silver had an upward tendency,  ���������yesterday and .was quoted at 52 cents  with lead at 63.85. All this anxiety  that is pecassioning dull time is  merely sentimental. There are to-day  more miners at work in mines around  Sandon than, there was ever before  at this season of the year with a'corres-  pondei.gily large pay roll. One man  says iin account of tin; drop in silver,  ''Twill hold'my- money if f, do not  know where.Itss going,to end, auotlier  takes up the cautions cry anil- so on  along the line. This is why money  does not. circulate as briskly as it  did. There is no need of this, as considering the purity of:.our ore, the  f.'tcilities for shipmen.*,; etc. 'Sandon's  mines can be worked at 40 cents ' itiirl  even, less, and tboy will be. If the  over timid would only drop their- excitement things would soon got into  normal shape and business would go  on better than'ever. V> e repeat again-  there is no ground for any alarm about  the safety of business here...    '       ���������  Ileadville, "������������������ ivrass.,.

When he passed the quarter,  post in 30 seconds, flat, however, there  Was intense excitement. Tlie half  mile was turned in 59i!,, and the third  quarter, in,1.29. On the stretch.: the  horse seemed to' fly . and crossed the,  tape in the wonderful time of 1.59J.  He was paced by a running horse.  Star'Pointer was driven by McLaren.  -Transfer oiLipor License.
