Array Volume V.   No. 41.  NEW DENVER, B. C, JULY 14; 1898.  Price, $2,00 Year  SLOGAN NEWS  Concentrates From Various  Points Hereabouts.  BENVERITES    AND     NEIGHBORS  New Denver must have a fire hall.  In June the Idaho shipped 950 tons of  ore.  Bear stories have become too numerous to mention.  Things look decidedly Green in the  Slocan just now.  The Bank of B. N. A. is closing its  branch at Sandon.  The Bankof British Columbia will take  its branch out of Kaslo.  The usual services will be held in the  Presbyterin church on Sunday next.  Sandon camping parties are enjoying  an outing on the lake shore in and about  New Denver.  A large number from Sandon and lake  ,. points enjoyed the Orangeman's celebration at Slocan City.  Some good strings of fish are being  brought in daily from Six Mile and  neighboring creeks.  Already good use is being made of the  Three Forks road. This promises to be  the most traveled highway leading to tho  lake.  Rosebery has a restaurant which is a  great convenience to travellers,especially  those who come from Slocan City in the  morning.  Harry Lindly, with his excellent company of 14 people, will play a three  nights engagement at Sandon commencing to-night.  Bottling works are being erected at the  Halycon Hot Springs. The B.A.C. has  acquired the controlling interest in these  famous springs.  Enterprise ore is being shipped in box  ���cars from Ten Mile. The barge system  gives all Slocan lake points practical railway transportation.  Divine services will be held in the  Methodist church next Sunday, July;17.  Morning at 11 and evening a��,7:30. R.  N. Powell, preacher.  Now that the election is over and the  majority's choice is elected we can again  accustom ourselves to the quiet humdrum life of a mining camp.  Andy Wallace is spending the summer  in New Denver, after some months spent  at Vancouver. The coast cities, he says,  are experiencing flush times.  The arrival of a bouncing baby girl at  the home of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur St. C.  Brindle Monday afternoon is a matter of  rejoicing to their host of friends.  The Sunday School picnic will be made  a big success, by everybody attending  and taking an active interest in contributing to the children's pleasure.  The strongest gale of the year raised  the dust over New Denver Sunday afternoon and caused considerable damage to  fences, light shanties and growing trees.  A letter has been received from Angus  Matheson dated at Teslin lake, stating  that he was not drowned with W. J. McKinnon, as was stated in the press some  weeks ago.  The force on the Bosun is to be increased at once. The showing on this  property is improving, ore is being taken  out and it will soon be another New  Denver shipper.  Lord Aberdeen, Governor-General of  Canada, will make a trip through Kootenay next week. At Nakusp, on next  Tuesday, the citizens will present him  ���with an address.  pended on this highway will be of great  advantage to the mines in that favored  section."  The two gangs working on the Silver-  ton road met Saturday, and with the  exception of a small bit of cleaning up  and rock blowing on this end the road  is completed. It is now one of the best  in Kootenay.  Several cases of poisoning are. reported  in town, from drinking a decoction in  in which a poison root was steeped, it  being mistaken for another summer  beverage root. All have recovered  sufficiently to be about.  The C.P.R. will immediately complete  the survey of their line from Bear Lake  to Whitewater. The survey from Three  Forks to Bear Lake was finished some  months ago. The construction of this  road may be looked for at any time.  The C.P.R. has put on a new train.  It is the steamboat express and leaves  Winnipeg for Fort William every Monday, Thursday and Saturday. Passengers from the Slocan can make  connections with this train by leaving  New Denver Mondays, Wednesdays and  Fridays at 8 :35 a.m.  The California is developing most encouragingly. Last week an excellent  strike was made in the new workings of  a strong galena body, and ore is being  taken out in large quantities. A shipment is to be made to the Nelson smelter, a pack train now being* engaged  carrying it to the New Denver wharf.  Last Sunday, near Rosebry, while the  train was running 15 miles an hour Conductor Brown spied an-eagle perched  upon a tree. He fired at it with a rifle,  and the bullet knocked the bird off its  perch. The train hands then captured  it, and presented i it to Billy Walmsley,  of Sandon, who will do his best to educate this nice pet.  able, and is extremely unfair to the  men. Those who will feel it the most  are the married men, many of whom  have families, and who find it impossible  to live and biing up their children properly on less than $2.50 a day. Were it  possible for them to work every day of  the month it might still be possible for  them to live decently on the reduced  wage, but everyone who is conversant  with the affairs of the smelter is aware  that it is not possible for the roustabouts  to get regular work owing to the constant closing down of the big blast furnace, which has been occurring with  great regularity nearly every month, and  also owing to the nature of the work,  which vaiies in amount from time to  time. Many of the single men, who  chiefly board at the boarding house,  have found even at the old rate of pay,  that their monthly cheques were practically eaten up by their board bills, while  some did not earn enough to keep out of  debt.  The company cannot hope to fill then-  places. The best they can get will be a  set of inefficient, inexperienced, worthless men, probably dagos, a class of  labor, that for all the good they do the  country, is hardly preferable to Chinese.  The sympathy of* the people of Nelson is  entirely with the men in their present  struggle.  A   HOT    CAMP.  will proceed   to  the   head   of the lake,  where grounds, swings, etc., will be  prepared beforehand for the children.  Speeches will be made by the various  ministers, and music will be furnished  by the New Denver band. Everything  possible has been done to make the affair  a complete success.  The fare from Silverton for the round  trip will be 75 cents, from New Denver  50 cents, from Sandon $1.00, and Three  Forks 75 cents. Children under 12 years  will be carried free and the various  classes will be under supervision of their  teachers.  .  EAST CANADIAN NEWS.  It is estimated that there are 6,000  acres under tobacco in Essex county this  year.       ,,  A discovery has been made of what  appears to be crude petroleum, in West  Templeton. Several prospectors have  already viewed the spot.  Labrador is declared to be rich in gold  and seven expeditions have already gone  thither. Five of these were organized in  Halifax, one in Boston and the last in  St. John's, N.F.  Dick Fraser,who has been in Ashcroft,  is about to begin the publication of a  paper at Lillooet. Ricardo has many  friends who will be sorry to learn of. this  great trouble that is coming upon him.  He set the first line of type on New Denver's greatest paper,and although a little  syeopanurius, he never allowed the  dingbat to wander away with the  cajurem.   DROWNED    IX   THIS    COLUMBIA.  Word is received from Burton City of  the death of one of the old and respectable citizens of that town.   Nelson Gul-  licksoii was on the 5th hist, returning in  a boat from Burton City to Byron Burton's ranch, opposite Sand Island, where  he had been engaged for the past year.  He was accompanied by Samuel Homer,  of Burton City, who at the time of the  accident was rowing the boat.   Gullick-  son was sitting in  the stern of the boat  paddling.    The paddle suddenly slipped  out of his hand, and in  turning quickly  to grab it he lost his ballance and went  into the Columbia.   They were at that  time  quite   near  Burton's   ranch, and  about 50   yards  from   shore.   A heavy  current runs in that particular place and  it was   impossible   for   Mr.   Homer to  render much assistance, and the deceased sank at once.   On coming to the surface his dog sprang from  the boat into  the water, but in an instant the unfortunate man sank again and was seen no  more.   Gullickson was a native of Norway and 55 years of age.   The citizens  of Burton City immediately turned out  and dragged the river, but his body has  not been found.  Bill  Parker came  into  this   country  several years ago and staked out a large  amount of hard luck.   Two years ago he  discovered some fine clay, opposite Deer  Park and pre-empted the land around it.  The   railroad   people   picked   upon  his  ground for their headquarters during the  construction of the road from Robson to  Penticton and Parker called his townsite  Brooklyn.    The crowd  flocked   in   and  changed Parker's name from Bill to Mr.  A month ago  the  shore line was dotted  by a few tents   and   Parker's original  cabin.   Now there are 10 hotels ready  for business with five more building, and  nearly all lines of business are represented.   About half a dozen dwelling'houses  have   red   curtains.    Schools   of   black  jack and horse poker have been established   and   sleep   is scarce   in   the   town.  Brooklyn is  swift, but a mushroom.    It  will throb   with life for a   few months  and then fade away, unless mines are  developed in the vicinity.    Peterson, of  Trail,  opened  the  first hotel,  and in a  short time raked in $3,000.    Everybody  wanted to drink and they lined up to the  bar as   thick   as   editors   in   Paradise.  James McNeil, Gus Jackson,  H. Y. Anderson, Sandy McDonald, James Martin,  Fred. Richardson and several others are  in the hotel business.   The town needs  a pose office.    Mail is now  brought iif a  gunny sack from Robson, dumped into  boxes in front of Parker's cabin, where  every man sorts the mail and picks out  what belongs to him.   Parker has a sign  displayed upon  which is painted,  "No  Chinese Need Land."   Major Blackmer,  who has been addicted to the newspaper  habit for several years, has charge of the  townsite.   In the camp can be seen old  timers who have followed railroading all  over  this   continent.    McMartin,   Jack  O'Leary,    Jim   McDonald   and    many  others "have    contracts    on   the   line.  Brooklyn is a hot town,  and only a few  of the inhabitants drink  water.    There  are plenty of business people there now  and a few more  will spoil  the effect of  the million dollars that is to be expended  in the vicinity during the next year.  An early settler of Owen Sound, named Simon J. Parke, aged 65 years, died  on June 25th, after a short illness. Mr.  Parke for the last 11 years held the position of landing waiter and customs appraiser.  It is understood that the Standard Oil  Company has purchased the Imperial Oil  Refinery of Petrolia and leased every  other refining plant in Canada for five  years, thus securing an absolute monopoly of oil refining in Canada.  The Ottawa Government is being  urg'ed to oppose an export duty on nickel  ore. Mr. John Patterson, of "Hamilton,  has offered to deposit a guarantee of  $250,000, if the duty is imposed, that his  company will erect a plant capable of  treating 1,000 tons of ore per day.  The Toronto Industrial Exhibition will  be held this year from 29th of August to  10th of September. It will be formally  opened by Lord and Lady Aberdeen.  The exhibition this year will be more  interesting than usual on account of the  large exhibits from Great Britain and  France.  A rich find of copper, carrying a good  percentage of gold and silver, has been  made in the vicinity of Flinton, Adding-  ton county. A solid vein seven feet  wide has been struck at a distance of  some 60 feet. A 100-stamp mill is to be  erected and the work continued on a  large scale.  A despatch from the  great activity exists on  deposits found in the Lake Wawa valley.  On the surface of the deposit there is  reported to be a coarse quartz sand, that  yields by stamping, $6 per ton. Some  workers are down to pay dirt, and are  reaping good returns.  blacksmith shop.    No trace of tho murderer has been found.  The Canadian "Soo" is soon to be the  scene of g-reat improvements. Work  will be commenced very shortly. The  Lake Superior Power* Co. have purchased the rig-hts of the abandoned  power canal on the American side of  rapids, and also large tracts of land,  sufficient to permit of the construction  of a hydraulic canal of about 50,000  horse power. The Soo is also to have  better railway connection with the east.  Sir Wm. Van Home has arrived  home from a holiday visit to England.  Sir William says that there is a verv  friendly feeling prevalent in England,  throughout all classes, towards the  United States. Speaking' of Canada, he  says that Lord Strathcona is very active  in promoting the interests and knowledge of Canada among the people.  Money is plentiful, but much caution is  exercised with regard to engaging in  wild-cat schemes.  Not long ago the Queen's University,  Kingston, bestowed upon the Countess  of Aberdeen the honorary degree of  D.C.L. This is the first time "that a  woman has been so honored. In return  for this courtsey the University is to  have a full-length statue of Her Excellency. Hamilton McCarthy, the sculptor, was given sittings while Lady  Aberdeen was conducting her correspondence in the mornings at Rideau  Hall. The statue will likely be finished  in terra cotta.  GREAT VICTORY  The Turner Government Fell  Short Many Votes.  OPPOSITION WELL ESTABLISHED  "Soo" says that  the new placer  A frightful accident happened to Miss  Millie Dawson, of London,Ont., daughter  of Postmaster R. J. C. Dawson, of that  city, on Saturday last. While crossing  Richmond street a trolley car, which was  hidden from her view by her parasol,  knocked the unfortunate young lady  down, and the wheels passed over one  leg injuring it so badly that it has since  been amputated. Miss Dawson was  graduated from Toronto University only  a few weeks ago. The doctors report  that she will likely recover.  Mr. Alex. Smith, who has been a  student at the School of Practical  Science, Toronto, and who has also  worked on the Craig mine, Hastings  county, left this week to hunt for diamonds in the Wahnapital District. A  prospector, named George Taylor, discovered some three or four years ago  an old crater in the township of Davis,  which was of course filled up. On its  surface appeared a red ashy deposit  overlaid with large boulders, evidently  a glacial results. As diamonds are  often found filling extinct crater, some  enterprising capitalists have sent Mr.  Smith to prospect.  The latest election   returns   indicate  that the Turner government is defeated.  The figures stand thus:   Opposition, 19  members   returned;   Government,   16.  Cassiar has   two   members   yet   to  be  elected,  which   makes the  total of 38  members.   It   is   thought that Cassiar  will give   the   Opposition at least one  msmber.   Cariboo   has still   to be definitely   heard   from,   but   though   the  final returns for that riding are not yet  in, it is conceded that the two members  will be oppositionists.   Should Cariboo  return   one   member for   each   side it  would still leave 19 to 17.   A majority of  two for the Opposition and if the two  Cassiar seats went in favor of the Turner  government, which it is claimed will be  the case,  it would make 19 each.   This  could hardly be considered a tie as when  the first want of confidence vote is taken  the   Government  would   have its own  speaker in the chair and so would be defeated by 19 votes to 18, so that in any  case there is an  absolute certainty that  the Turner government has seen its last  days.  The Government is successful in the  following constituencies:  Victoria 1, North Victoria 1, South Victoria 1,  New Westminster Cit.v 1, Esquimalt 2, North  Nunimo 1, Comox 1, Cowichan 1, Dewdney 1,  East Yale 1, West Lillooet 1, East Kootenay  (north riding) 1.

THE   RA1STON    CALL.  CAPT.    FREEK'S   DEATH.  R. K. Neal Mas through Xew Denver  Saturday en route to Ten Mile to visit  the Enterprise. It is said he has his  eye on the Fidelity, which property he  will inspect for John A. Finch.  Mr. Alex. Sproat, as Stipendiary Magistrate, heard his first case at Silverton  Monday. W. W. Bouch was brought  before him charged with disturbing the  peace and was taxed $5 and costs.  Genelle & Co. have a contract to supply the railroad now building from  Robson to Penticton with 14,000,000 feet  of lumber and timber. They will erect  mills at Robson and Christiana lake.

By  so doing it is hoped that the better  health which follows may lead to a  higher plane of happiness and usefulness  in life."���Hope-Well No. 9S02346.  THE BONDHOLDER.  The Bondholder group is to be surveyed and Crown-granted. R. C. Campbell-  Johnston arrived in New Denver on  Sunday and states that experts from  England will examine the property this  summer. If their report is satisfactory  an English company with a capital of  over half a million dollars will take the  property.  Tho   Smelter   Strike.  On July 1st the Hall Mines management  of Nelson made a cut of 20 per cent, in  the wages of the men employed. The  reduction brought the rate of wages down  to the lowest level yet reached in Kootenay���$2 per day for labor. The men  went out on strike, but a compromise  was reached by the company agreeing to  pay the old hands (he old rate, new men  to receive $2 per day.

Freer, of Nelson, was killed by a  fall from   a   stairway   attached   to the  Clarke hotel Saturday evening, July 2.  He was a step-son of H. Abbott, formerly    superintendent    of    the Canadian  Pacific Railway.   Freer was 39 years old.  He   was   educated   at   Trinity   College  School,  Port Hope,  Ontario, and afterwards went to the Royal Military College  at Kingston, when  he  passed as one of  the four entitled  to  commissions in the  Imperial service.    He  received a commission in the  South Staffordshire regiment and served in the Egyptian war, for  which he   received  a  medal,   obtained  leave of absence and was appointed aide-  de-camp  to   General   Middleton during  the Riel rebellion and served on the staff  of the military  schools at London, Ont.,  and St. John's, Que,    He subsequently  rejoined his  regiment and resigned  his  commission  While his regiment was at  Gibraltar, since which time he has been  engaged  in railway work in  this  Province.  Gaudiiur   Still    Champion.  In a letter written from Cuba Mr. R.  Tomlinson, formerly of Ottawa, says that  he was one of the company of men from  Admiral Sampson's fleet before Santiago  that raised the first American flag, which  has been hoisted by the invading force  on Cuban soil. They were fired upon  but escaped without injury.  Mrs. Charles T. Bate, an old and very  highly esteemed resident of Toronto,  died on Saturday last. Mr. Bate was a  descendant of an old U. E. Loyalist  family, being the granddaughter of the  late Capt. Hugh Munroe, of Rossshire,  Scotland, and maternal granddaughter  of the late Colonel Wm. Fraser, of Williamsburg, Md.  Mrs. Catharine Parr Traill, of Lake-  field, Ont who is now in her 97th year, is  to ..be honored by a testimonial as a  tribute to the unique position she holds  as the oldest living author in the British  Empire. A committee, of which Sir  Sandford Fleming and Principal Grant  are members, has been formed in Ottawa  to arrange what form the testimonial  shall take.  A general circular has ;been issued by  the C.P.R. to merchants, storekeepers  and dealers along its lines, giving a list  of banks which have arranged to cash  the     company's    paymastejs'     wages  cheques without charge. Practically  every bank will take them; and the circular says: "Merchants and others can  safely accept these cheques from employees on the same terms as the banks,  and it is hoped that those doing business  along the line will aid the company in  facilitating the negotiation of these  cheques, without charge."  government, 222;  Parks ville���Bry -  The Dominion Statistician, Mr. Geo.

Shaffer's troops and Admiral Sampson's  naval fleet. The Spaniards refused to  evacuate Santiago and it, with all the  other coast towns, will be bombarded  and taken by the Americans. The total  destruction of Admiral Cervera's fleet  and the capture of Santiago will make  peace negotiations very Iprobable, and  that in the very near future.  Buying   Telephone    Stock.  Jake Gaudaur defeated Johnstone, of  Vancouver, easily in the world's championship contest at Vancouver on Monday, July 4. Gaudeaur's time was 20  minutes and 25 seconds. Johnstone  finished four lengths behind the champion.  ALL   ABOARD    FOB   THE    33ND.  Arrangements for the Sunday school  picnic are now complete. The ss. Slocan  will make an eai ly morning trip from  Silverton, making connectiona at Rose-  berv with   the  train   from Sandon, and  taken on April 1st, 1901. He expects  that the ag-greg-ate increase of the  population will be about 20 per cent.  The older provinces may show a decline, which is accounted for by the  migration to the North-West, which has  been increasing- greatly the last few-  years.  The tramp with the wooden leg, who  shot and killed Policeman Twohey, at  London, Ont., last week, has not yet  been captured, although many wooden-  legged members of the society of tramps  have been arrested throughout Ontario  west as suspects. In the meantime $500  reward is offered for his capture. P. C.  Twohey was an old and greatly esteemed  officer and much regret is felt for his untimely death.  Nightwatchman Henry Gray, of the  Almonte Knitting Mills, was shot and  killed between the hours of 1 and 2 on  Wednesday morning. A blacksmith  shop opposite the mills, was broken into  by a burglar, who was probably after  tools. It is surmised that Gray must  have seen him and crossed the street, as  he was found lving some 20 feet from the  The controlling interest in the New  Westminster and Burrard Inlet Telephone Company has been secured by an  English syndicate.

It has been  learned that English capitalists have  bought up 95 per cent, of the stock of  the company, and it is thought that they  will have little difficulty is securing the  remainder. The new company will, it is  understood, be run on the same lines as  it is now.       _   WATER    GRANTS.  North Nanaimo���J. Bryden,  J, G. Hellier, opposition, 135;  den, 18; Hellier, 13.

Bob Green, having- been elected to  vote in the local legislature for the  next lour years, must do the following  things it lie wishes to keep in harmony with the men who caused M.  P. P. to be tacked onto his name:  Run all the Chinese out of Kaslo.  Provide Carney and Ciiffe with a  meal ticket when necessary.  Have the miners and mortgage tax  repealed.  Get Angus Mclnnes a permanent  job of swearing in votes. He is an  artist whose discriminating powers  should not be forgotten.  Send Red Paddy to a school of oratory. '  Procure the position of Surveyor-  General for your solid friend, S. P.  Tuck.  Drown Dave King and D. R. Young  for allowing you to get a majority in  the towns in which their great papers  are published.  Have the parliament buildings removed to Kaslo.  Build a trail to the claim of every  man whose vote was Green.  Stop the Government from building  any more railroads, unless they run  into Kaslo.  Have New Denver wiped off the  map and all the roads leading to it  filled, up.  Get pointers from Kellie. upon how  to live a year on $600.  Get posted by Fred Hume upon the  art of looking wise and playing the  dumb act when the house is in session.  Don't talk too much. Your'stentorian voice might jar the piaster on  the walls of the new legislative halls.  Drink water in your whiskey, and  do not smoke unless you hold the  deuce of hearts.  If you get stuck tor lack ot information on any subject, write to the  brilliant editor of the Silvertonian  and get a carload of wisdom. It is  cheaper this way  than in small lots.  Do not play poker, unless you have  some country fellows in the game.  Most of the Victoria legislators can  play poker better than they can teach  Sunday school. Remember this, Bob,  and you may be a credit to the city  from which you hail.  The defeat of Mr. Retallack was  not the defeat ot the man, but of the  party he endorsed. His campaign  was clean and honorable, and not a  word can be said reflecting upon his  personality as a candidate. Though  defeated, he is honored by those who  opposed him and admired by his followers as much today as before the  polls were closed.  AN   EVES    THING.  In the election held on Saturday  the Turner Government was badly  defeated. The Opposition will have  18 or 20 members out of the 38, with  a bare possibility of both sides tieing  at 19 when the by-elections are held  in Cassiar, two weeks later.  As is usually the case when the  contest is so close, both sides lay  claim to the two ridings in doubt.  But there is no doubt that the Turner  government has been turned down.  Neither side will have a working  majority, and the approaching session of the Legislature pr omises to be  very interesting.  The defeat of the Turner government has been a surprise to many,  but it cannot be said that the people  have acted unwisely. In many respects the Government lias shown too  little consideration. for the needs of  various sections of the Province.  It was easilv seen many months ago  that the Turner government was not  Do not attend the Comique, or paint giving entire satisfaction. It was too  the town red.

All  people are careless; and nearly all  are ignorant of the laws of health.  When sickness comes, it is very easy  to look back to the neglect which  caused it. How many thousands on  beds of death have prayed for one  more chance to live and obey Nature's  laws!  "The preservation of your health  is a duty which you owe to your  family, your friends, and the public.  Are you a father, mother, child or  relative? What right have you to  neglect vour health and inflict care  and trouble on others, and perhaps  broken health in Avatching and doing  for you? Ill health, when due to  pure neglect, is a moral wrong. It  robs the home of money and happi-  negs���the two chief factors of human  life. More sinful is that man or  woman who will enter the bonds of  wedlock, knowing that children born  ot the union are sure to grow up in  suffering.  "Ill health begets poverty, discontent, irritability and a diseased mind,  '"here can never be a sound brain in  an unsound body. Nearly all poverty  is due to ill health either in this or a  previous generation. There is plenty  in the world for all, and no person  should remain poor. Health begets  good blood; this makes good brain  power; this good judgment, and the  natural consequence is a life filled  with impulses that lead to success.  On the other hand, nearly all irritability is due to bad indigestion; and  it is well known that irritability leads  to nervousness, sleeplessness, brain  deficiency and insanity, on the vital  side, and to Ugliness, ill-temper, sin  and crime on the moral side."

You are now sentenced to four years of hard labor in  Victoria, and may the Lord have  mercy upon the Silvery Slocan.  During the past month we have  found out by carefully reading the  papers that this Province was full of  pirates, thieves, sand-baggers, road  agents, horse-thieves and liars. Most  of them were running for the legislature, and their desperate character  was not known until the campaign  commenced.  (HJAltn    YOUR    HEALTH.  Ralston has the following to say  on health:  "You know that the preservation  of health is a solemn duty; and if  you do not care whether you are sick  or well, dependent or helpful, someone else does. You know that this is  an age of invalids, of dyspepsia, heart  failure, diseased lungs, soft livers,  decayed kidneys, bad skin, lifeless  blood and sickly nerves, because it is  sections great sums of revenue while  giving comparatively little in return.  Kootenay, in particular, has been  most unfortunate in this respect, and,  though a marked change in the Government's policy toward this section  had been noticeable in the past six  months, yet these few months were  not time enough to heal the wounds  caused by its former neglectful policy.  Whether or not this was the fault of  our representatives in their inability  to properly press forward the needs  of the section (which we feel has been  the case) the fact remains that the  Government was held accountable  for the apparent lack of zeal and inattention in this direction. As a result the Kootenay ridings send five  Opposition members to parliament by  comfortable majorities, and in almost  every riding outside of Vancouver  island the result has been the same.  It is now the Mainland against the  Island with odds in favor of the  Mainland. All of the Opposition members but two are from the Mainland,  and every Government member but  two, and possibly four, comes from  the Island.  This is a good combination for the  people of the Province. - There will  be no more legislation adverse to the  Mainland and favoring the charter-  mongers of the Island, no more land  grabbing by government ministers  and less subsidizing of questionable  railway schemes while shutting out  reliable, substantial companies that  would develop our Province and  afford railroad competition where it  is so greatly needed.  It is not a pleasant thing" to talk about  debt. Debt is one of the curses of civilization, but countries, like men, like to  get into it. Canada is not an exception.  If her statesmen cannot add something-  to her indebtness every year something  is wrong. Phillips Thompson in  "Citizen and Country," a new, publication in Toronto, tritely says on the  subject:  Under our system of reckless and profligate public* expenditure and lavish  bonusing of all manner of syndicates  and exploiters who can muster sufficient  pull to make it an object to governments to buy their support, it is only  natural that "the outlay of the Dominion  Government shouli continually exceed  its revenue. Although under the spacious plea of encouraging* home industry  nearly every- article of consumption is  heavilv taxed, the income almost invariably falls short of the amount requisite to carry on the government; as  would be the case Avere it ten times as  great, seeing that the financial demand  'is not regulated by the actual requirement of the public service, but by the  appetites of the partisan and corporation vampires who have influence to  sell.

His praises  are sounded as though the idea of mortgaging the' labor of unborn generations  of Canadians to relieve his financial  necessities was a new and unique idea  which could only emanate from a high  order of genius, and the chances are  that the superior merit involved in  thinking this way out of the difficulty is  dulv rewarded by a title.  The national debt of Canada at the  end of June, 1897, amounted to S332,-  530,131; of which 8261,538,501 is net  debt. For the balance there is supposed to something to show in the way of  assets or set off' in the shape of debts  due to the Government from the various provinces, municipalities, etc,  mostlv of a very dubious character: but  practically the" larger sum represents  the amount upon which the people of  Canada are taxed year by year for the  pavment of interest amounting to S10,-  64o,6G3. Roughly speaking, there is  about one million families in Canada on  the ordinary method of calculation, allowing five'persons to each family; so  that each Canadian household is calied  upon to pay in addition to all taxes for.  the purpose of meeting* current expenditure, the annual sum of ten dollars and  a half for interest on the public debt  alone However saving, however in  dustrious,howover actuated by a horror  of debt and the determination never to  mortgage his homestead, the citizen  mav be", it has been ^E no avail. The  Government, without asking his consent has put a $332 mortgage on his  property, a mortgage which is continually running behind and getting larger  from year to year as the arrears of  interest are compounded with the principal. Lastvear the Liberal Government, following the footsteps of their  Conservative predecessors, increased  the debt to the amount of $3,011,1<>3. If  citizen is a good party man, it wil{  doubtless reconcile him to the situation  to reflect that the series of financial ad-,  ministrators who have gone on piling  up this debt have|won great deputations  for their sagacity and foresight in being  able to borrow money, and that the  names of some of them are inscribed in  the peerage: And then, does not the  fact chat Ave have been able to borrow  so much and keep on borrowing to pay  the interest show that our credit is  good? These are thoughts that should  enable the truly patriotic to bear privation with fortitude if not with positive  satisfaction.  Canada should have a mint. As a  country it has outgrown the stage of  short pants, and nothing will give it  a better standing than the coining of  its own money.  It is to be hoped that Green has a  cache of ability somewhere. He  will need it in Victoria.  anko  ootreak  Established 1817.

"Well, step up to the desk and the  cashier will settle with you."  For three weeks the young man could  find no work, but one day a banker came  to Gitard to ask if he could recommend  a man for cashier in a new bank. This  discharged young man was at once named as a suitable person.  "But," said the banker, "you discharged him."   .  "Yes, because he  would  not work on  Sundays.    A man   who. would lose his  place for conscience's sake would make a  trustworthy cashier."    And  he was ap- j notice  pointed.  F.  G. FAUQUIER,  NOTARY PUBLIC.  Nakusp, B.C.

The wife of his bosom took the air:  She was bought in the-mart where hearts are  sold. ,  I gave myself away for his ove-  She sold herself lor his gold.  He lives, they say. In a princely way,  Flattered and feasted.   One dark night  Some devil led me to pass his house:  I saw the. windows a blaze of light,  The music whirled in a maddening round,  I hear the fall of the dancers' feet;  Bitter, bitter the thoughts I had,  Standing there in the street.

The scouts returned soon,  reporting1 that the whole body of them  had moved off slowly, neither in frig-ht  nor in mischief, but simply changing-  camp, also, intending* to take up the  trail the next day. This was in the  vicinity of Walnut Creek and on the  edge of the Juniper hills, a few miles  from the spot on the Whipple to Moj'ave  road, which in after vears became the  location of Camp Huafapais.  On the morning- of the 12th we took  up the broad, plain trail, and it soon  grew "hot." The sign was plenty,  where the Indians had moved along, j  stopping every few minutes to warm I  themselves by setting fire to clumps of  grass. Presently we found on a bush a  slip of paper from Cooler: "Go slow;  Indians must be very near." A few  minutes later he appeared in person  with some news I will condense in the  Arizona vernacular :  "Game jus' over the hill thai*���all-  fired big gang of em���more'n a hundred  squattin' tergecher, eatin' that steer  they stole from Jake Miller. They ain't  got'no idea we're 'round���can jus'"sneak  up 'n' wade in 'n1 whale hell outen 'em  corrall the whole kerboodle slicker'n  greased lightnin'."  Thompson gave his orders very  quietly; ne was a good soldier, always  coolest when things were hottest.' lie  hustled the cavalry horses and pack  mules into a thick clump of-cedars,  where four men were detailed to hold  them, and told me to stay there. I expostulated that I hadn't" come out for  that, when he said, "Well, come along  then if you want to," no doubt adding  to himself, "if you want to be a durned  fool." We dispensed with unnecessary  clothing, and I could notice some white  faces and set teeth among the soldiers  as they waited for tlie word. "Forward !'" said Thompson, in a low voice,  and the 24 of us crept quickly in silence  up the hill.  The woods ceased on  its  crest, and  there was  the   rancheria down   in an  open   hollow  about  80   yards off, the  wickiups strung along a  little   space,  and   among   them   men, women   and  children, unconscious of danger.    For  a moment I   wished   myself anywhere  else     I was armed witli a double-barreled shotgun, 10-gauge,  muzzleloader  ���we   had no   breechloaders   in those  days     My'ideas were  not agreeable���  about equally divided between imagining my helplessness as soon as I should  have ' fired   twice,   and the  miserable  butcheiy we   were   about   to commit.  Then a dog barked in tlie Indian camp.  We were discovered.   But the men had  meanwhile deployed in line of battle on  tlie crest of the hill  in the edge of the  woods.     "Fire!"   shouted   Thompson.  The   volley   rang   out.     "Forward-  double-quick���charge!"   And we made  the rush with a yell!  I  was  pretty "lively on  my pins in  those davs, and  theret were only two  Thompson and George Cooler knew beforehand that these were friendly or at  least not hostile Indians I was" never  sure. But I think there was reason  enough for worry when Thompson discovered that it " was Red Shirt he had  killed I was afterward given to understand these Indians were chiefly, if  not entirely, Hualapais I know the  affair led to a series of bloody murders  in reprisal, which cost more lives of  whites than we took at the time of  Indians, to say nothing of the hundreds  of Indians killed in the Hualapais war  of later year. I have nowhere seen,  and do not think that there exists in  print at least, any fair account, such as  I have given, of the Juniper Mountain  massacre.  Sixteen years afterward, in 1881, I  rode out from Camp Hualapais in company with my friend, Mr. Frank Cush-  ing,   to  look  at the   spots  so deeplv  branded in my memory. A settler's  cabin was in tlie valley, and a cornfield  waved its tassels over the ground once  reddened with the blood of those inoffensive men, women and children. I  picked up a relic or two of the slaughter  on the exact spot where I had taken  the bow and arrows from the stiffening  hands of the dead chief, Red Shirt.  WHAT    TO    KAT.  The summer appetite is usually  capricious and craves constant change;  so nature has provided most bountifully, and we have almost an embarrassment of riches in the way of vegetables  and fruits. I think the very abundance  causes us to underestimate the value of  them.  In our talk of vegetables to-day, we  will divide them into two classes: the  leguminous or pod:bearing family, in  which is included peas, beans" and  lentils, and all tlie other families, which  we will simply class as non-leguminous  The latter class contains but small  quantities of the proteids or flesh-forming elements; their greater value lies  in their medicinal " properties. The  potash salts which they contain are of  inestimable value and a free use of  them is found to be a great preventive  hard, stalky part is rendered soft and  succulent by the longer boiling which  this plan permits. In selecting asparagus, I would always advise taking the  green. If those housekeepers who have  been in the habit of using the white  would only-try the g'reen, I am quite  sure they would never use the white  again. I am reminded of a most estimable woman whom I met some years  ago, who said she could not understand  how people could like asparagus, for it  was nothing" but a mass of tough, woody  fibers, and no matter how long it was  cooked, did not soft?.n. Upon investigating, I found that she had been it the  habit of cutting off the tips and throwing them away and only using the  tough lower portion of the stems. ���"  While, of course, the young onions  should be eaten raw, the older ones  should be skinned and covered Avith  boiling water. When the water becomes quite green it should be poured  off and fresh boiling water poured on.  The onions should be cooked until they  are tender. The water should then be  poured away at once and the onion put  into a white sauce prepared by using  two tablespoons of flour and "two of  butter to a pint of milk, stew a few  minutes and serve The great value of  onions ought to overcome the prejudice  existing against them on account of  their persistent odor, which is due to a  pungent oil. rich in sulphur. A little  green parsley eaten after onions is of  assistance in removing the odor from  the breath.  Cabbage should, be put into boiling-  salted water, with a scant half teaspoon-  ful of baking soda: keep the water boiling* hard with the cover off; half an  hour will cook it; but the water must  be kept boiling hard; take up and press  the water from it. It will be. tender  and delicious and there will be no unpleasant odor in the house ��� Cauliflower  must be cooked in a similar manner,  but 20 minutes' boiling- will sufiice, and  then served with a white sauce poured  over it. ���  to my marksmanship, I don't know that  I have got any business complaining.  "I was a cavalryman myself, boys,  during" the war, and there" wasn't aiiy  man in the ranks that could ride a horse  longer or better than I could, if J do say  it. I got through the war without a  scratch until that big fight at Branch-  Station. That was a scorcher and no  mistake. The rebs fought like tigers,  and for awhile it was nip and tuck be-;  tweenus.  "The fight went on until long after j  dark.and somehow 1 got separated from j  the others and mixed up in a peach j  orchard. The moon was shining, and !  when I got out of the orchard 1 found ;  myself in a big- field, and not 20 yards !  away was a Johnny walking his horse j  toward me just as if he was driving him  to water.

"I made up my mind that he was my :  prisoner, and,  pulling my revolver oh /  nim,   I   ordered   him to halt and dismount.    But he had  no  idea of giving :  up without a protest, and quicker than  you can say jack rabbit  he yanked out  his   revolver   and sent a bullet at my  head.   It didn't go   a   thousand miles  from the mark either.    I   heard  it sing  as it skipped past my ear, and, knowing that it wouldn't do to fool with the :  fellow, I let go at him.    My aim wasn't;  any better than his, and tlie bullet went;  out into the field.  "He took another shot at me, and 1 i  at him, but somehow we couldn't seem  to reach the mark.

Ill Arizona clays of 186-1-65 I hunted  Apaches sometimes, and sometimes I  was hunted by these Indians. Once we  came to terms, which were those of  a bloody massacre, as 1 will relate.  The Indians made things red hot for  the white citizens and soldiers in those  years. 1 was a youthful army surgeon,  fresh from college, on duty with troops  at Fort Whipple, close by Prescott.  There was not a trail leading- into either  the fort or the town that had not been  reddened with blood; travellers were  killed and stock was run off within  sight and sound of both places.  During  the winter of 1864-65 we hunted Indians  like any other large wild game,-arid  had killed a good many, when another  expedition was made against them, and  I asked and was granted permission to  join it���such was the foolishness of extreme youth, fancying there would be  fun in "killing Indians, besides being  needlessly curious in such beastly business. In" later years I attended such  performances when it was my duty to  do so, certainly never from choice.  I have before mean old journal which  reminds me that on Sunday evening  about dusk of January 8th, .1865, I rode  alone about five miles from Fort Whipple to Jake Miller's ranch to join the  party their bivouacked It consisted  of Capt. John Thompson, of the California Volunteers, in command���a redheaded, red-whiskered, blue-eyed,  freckle-faced Irishman, of renown as a  hard swearer, hard drinker, hard rider  and hard Indian fighter; myself, an  uncertain factor in this affair"; George  Cooler, citizen guide, a tall, lank fellow,  who knew all about the country and  Indians; two scouts, one of them a tame  Indian boy, and 23 soldiers���total 28.  We had an alarm the first night, tumbled out of blankets and charged into the  brush; but it amounted to nothing.  On the 9th and 10th we made long-  marches through Mint and Williamson's  valleys in search of a trail leading to a  rancheria we were to attack; part of  the march by night. It was intensely  cold; my canteen burst and let a stream  of water down my leg, instantly freezing; and we stumbled over very rough  country' in the dark till Ave came upon  the scouts, camped in the rancheria we  were going* to jump; it was deserted,  and we rolled into our blankets on the  spot, about 1 a.m. of the 11th.  At daylight   the   scouts went ahead  again, ana meanwhile we examined the  rancheria,  consisting  of 21 wickiups,  were in the camp; the shots  rang out  again  and   again;  yells,   shrieks and  groans resounded; the peculiar smell of  blood and burnt   powder  was   wafted  past my nostrils.   There was no resistance ; I do   not think an  arrow  was  fired: there was no light; it was a massacre.   After momentary confusion the  Indians broke away.   Some  had been  killed at the first fire; others, especially  women and children, as soon as we got  among them ; for the rest it was a race  through the woods for half a mile, devil  take the hindmost  with   them.    Kill as  can catch with us.    1 tried my best to  kill an Indian and  am  happy to say I  failed.   The only good shot l" got dropped  before   I   pulled   trigger,   with   a  piercing scream, and a paaoose rolled  off the back of its dying mother.    1 was  blown with running, and could not have  hit a barn door    The chase had meanwhile swept   on   beyond   me,   when   I  heard Thompson call out at my elbow,  "Watch out, Doctor, for that big buck!"  1 turned my head, and there was a tall  Indian���he looked about  10 feet tall���  drawing his bow about 10 feet off; at  the instant  Thompson shot him  dead  with   his   revolver,   else   probably    I  should not now be writing.  The killing was all over in about five  minutes.       Thompson    called    it     off  promptly, and then the looting- and firing of tlie 'wickiups was in order.    This  miserable business included   shooting-  some babies in the head with revolvers  as they   lay   helpless   in   their wicker,  cradles.    My expostulations about this  with one of the soldiers was met by the  undeniable remark,   "Nits will breed  lice; you   know,   Doc."   (This   soldier  shortly   afterward .murdered   in   cold  blood his first sergeant, .in the Whipple  barracks, in the face of the whole company.)    My share of the plunder was  the bow and arrows of old Red Shirt,  the chief, who   had intended   to shoot  me with them; some trinkets off  the  dead body of his squaw, who was lying  by his side,   and   all   the buckskins  I  cou'd carry away.  We counted 28 bodies, mostly of women and children ; not one of us got a  scratch.    There were   doubtless   some  killed   or   wounded   we   never  knew.  When  we   jumped   this rancheria we  knew nothing of a second one, quite as  large, only a few hundred yards down  the   valley,   but   concealed   from our  view.    This was evacuated at the first  alarm, and no Indian was killed there;  but we looted and  destroyed it like the  other.    As we drew off this sad scene of  carnayethe Indians gathered   in   the  woods at a distance, yelling defiance,  but no  further demonstration was attempted.    This was  perhaps fortunate  for us.    We must have jumped at least  200 Indians in the two rancherias, and  they could   have   made it hot for us if  they had had the courage and any sort  of fair show    I  know that  Thompson  was more worried after than before or  during the fight.   He ordered a prompt  retreat, and we made forced marches  back to Whipple.   On the way we murdered one   Indian���an  old   man,   who  was returning to the'rancherias we had  destroyed, and   ran  into   us before he  had discovered   us.    We   turned   him  prisoner over to the guard, with orders  to shoot him if he tried to escape, and  the column moved on.  Not five minutes  afterward a shot   was   heard,   and the  sergeant rode up and   saluted Thompson.'    "Well,   what   is   it,  Sergeant?"  "Prisoner tried to escape, sir."   "Well,  what did you do?"   "Shot him,   sir."  And we rode on.  I shall never cease to regret my participation in this atrocious affair. I  was perfectly innocent, to be sure, and  had no suspicion we were not hunting-  hostile Apaches.    Whether or not Capt.  of   rheumatism,    lumbago, "neuralgia,  gravel, stone and many other diseases!  These potash salts exist in   the green  parts   of   all vegetables.   Commercial  potash is manufactured from the ashes  of twigs and leaves of trees.    The more  soft and juicy the vegetable, the greater  the quahity of potash it contains.    In  using the raw vegetables in salads we  obtain all their potash, but in cooking,  a large proportion of these saline constituents are lost.    Particular attention  should be paid to the cooking of vegetables,   for   if   improperly cooked, they  not only* lose their health-giving properties, biit are likely fo cause indigestion.  They shold   be cooked   until  they are  tender and not a moment longer;" and  unless we follow the excellent 'example  of the  French and   use   the   water   in  which the vegetables are cooked, they  should be cooked in just as little water  as possible.   Soft water should be used  if obtainable, as hard water destroys  the fresh green color.    The addition of  a very  little   baking   soda���not more  than the size of a pea���helps to retain  the green color greatly.    As  soon as  vegetables are cooked they should be  dished and not left in the water.  Watercress, unfortunate,  is not used  nearly as freely as it should be.   Our  English cousins are  wiser than we as  regards this most  healthful vegetable,  and consume large quantities of it.  It is  a great anti-scorbutic,  and is supposed  to owe its pungent taste and medicinal  value to the presence of an essential oil  containing a considerable quantity of  sulphur.   Celery and cress are excellent  in   rheumatic   and nervous affections.  Spinach is particularly fine as an aperient.   A healthy action of the bowels is  necessary to health,  and a free use of  spinach, with other  vegetables,.'would  obviate the   necessity of   the so-called  spring medicines.   Asparagus has diuretic qualities of a very   high order, and  onions should be eaten freely,  as they  have a   particularly   good  effect upon  and  the nervous  Lettuce contains some mineral salts and a small  quantity of sleep-  producing   substance   is  found in the  stem.  In cooking asparagus, Sir Henry  Thompson advises that the stalks be  cut at exactly equal lengths, tied in a  bunch and boiled, standing-tips upward  in a deep saucepan; nearly two inches  of the tips should.be out 'of! water, the  steam sufficing" to cook  them, while the  Parsnips, carrots and beets contain a  large proportion of sugar and take more  than an hour to cook. These, vegetables should also be put into boiling-  water. A nice way to serve beets is to  prepare a sauce as follows: A desert  spoonful of butter, a scant one of flour;  let ������them.boil one minute; put to them a  scant half-pint of water; let it boil, season with salt and pepper, and then put  it a large teaspoonful more butter: stir  till mixed, and then add the juice of half  a lemon; put the sliced beets in this  sauce and let all come to a gentle boil  together.  Peas and beans are very rich in a  flesh-former called legumin, closely resembling the casein of milk, and the  water in which they are boiled should  not be thrown away. It contains much  of the salts of the peas, some of the  soluble casein and has a fine flavor, the  very essence of the peas. If to this  water is added a little stock or gravy, a  delicious soup is produced, requiring  nothing more than ordinary seasoning.  It is a very economical, wholesome and  appetizing soup and takes but a few  minutes to prepare.  The water in which string beans,  asparagus and spinach are boiled will  also form very wholesome soups or form  the basis of the very nurishing potage  of the French.  the digestive  svstem.  AFTER   THIRTY    YEARS,  All interesting episode occurred the  other night in the rooms on Broad  street, Trenton, where Lieutenant Hyer  is recruiting the Sixth United States  cavalry, says the New York Journal.  The work of the day was over, and  the officers and several men who had  dropped in to chat were sitting around  enjoying pipes and stories with a war  tinge. Among the visitors was an old  man with grizzled beard and a wooden  leg. He had seen his day on the battlefield, and had brought his son down  from the farm, 20 miles back in the  country, to emulate the example of his  father. The boy wanted to be a cavalryman, and his father wanted to see him  made one.  "How did you lose your leg, pop?"  asked oneof the men.  The old farmer slowly took his pipe  from his mouth and, looking his wooden  stump over deliberately, said: "T lost  that in one of hottest scrimmages that 1  ever had in my life. Twas the work of  a rebel, but I couldn't blame him. All's  fair in love and war, you know, and  when I remember that the fellow that  ruined that leg is minus an arm owing'  shots, when a ball struck my right lug  square in the knee pan. Hurt?' Weil'.  I'll never forget how that felt. But 1  kept on my horse and let drive another |-|  shot, it hit the fellow plumb in the  crook of his right arm. He tried to  shift his revolver to his left hand, but  couldn't do it, and in less than a minute  he was lying on the ground in a dead  faint.  "I got down and dragged myself up  to the fellow and poured some water  out of my canteen into his face, ft  pulled him up, and when he had come  to I told him that he might: as well give  up, as I had got his revolvers, and he  was at my mercy. He took a sensible  view of it and asked me if I couldn't  bandage his arm. 1 took my handkerchief and did the best I couid for him,  and theel he helped me to bandage my  wounded leg the best he could with his  whole arm.  "We sat there on the ground a couple  of hours, and during that time we got  pretty well acquainted, and he told me  his name' was John Timmins. After  awhile a bunch of union cavalrymen  came along and picked us up! Of  course, Timmins and myself were  separted, and I never saw him again. I  went to a hospital and had mv leg sawed off."  In a corner of   the   room  sat a jolly  faced man with an empty  sleeve    He  had come down from one of the extreme  northern counties in the state to enlist I  his son in the cavalry.    He had listened I  attentively to the story told by the man i  with the wooden leg, and when he had j  finished walked fiver, and, stopping jn j  front of him, said:  "And   you    never    saw   Timmins'  again?"  "Never," answered the man with the  wooden leg.  "And your name is William Hudson,"  said the man with the emptv sleeve.  "It is."  "And I'm the fellow  that is responsible for your leg and you  owe me an  arm."  "What!   You flint Timmins?"  "Iain."  The two veterans shook hands as  heartily as they would had they been  brothers, and the onlookers made the  room ring with cheers. Both Timmins  and Hudson are now citizens of New  Jersey, and each has given a son to the  cause that knows no north and no south.  frani leaves New Denver Canyon Siding daily  at KM.) a. in.

JAPAN'S BUNKS AND MINERALS.  The following' extracts    are copied  from   ''Commerce   and   Industries   of  . Japan" by Robert P. Porter :  What Japan is doing*1���If Japan shall  become an important factor as a manufacturing' country,  it will be felt both  by Europe and the United States in the  textile industries.   On the other hand I  believe that American trade with Japan  can best be increased by supplying' the  needs of its cities for iron and steel in  machinery in the public improvements  iioav   inaugurated,   and   in   supplying-  railway and bridge iron, locomotives,  and rolling' stock, and in the equipping-  of its new factories.    As a manufacturing' country, Japan is strongest in all  branches of textiles,and probably weakest in heavy metal work.   There is a  locomotive works 'at Tokyo where some  fairly g-ood work is done.   I visited also  ���several   foundries  and some machine  shops. There is a government machine  shop at Ozaka, which perhaps comes  nearer being' first-class than any other.  Here they turn out   excellent   work.  The Japanese are fully aware of their  weak point,and in the Imperial Technical School I found that every available  young-man was put into  the iron and  steel department.   The last session of  the Diet passed   a law establishing-  a  government   foundry   and a  machine  shop, and a member" of the cabinet has  taken   charge   of   it.   Japan   has just  awakened to   the  fact that she needs  good machanics in the metal industries,  and that to keep up with the times she  must have g-ood iron workers as well as  good  wood workers.    Her  statesmen,  moreover, are determined to build their  locomotives and their warships and to  make all the implements of war possible at home.   The policy is to purchase  abroad only what is needed immediately.    There is   no   reason   why Japan  should   not    ultimately    manufacture  these thing's herself, but for the present  she  is. in a large measure dependent  upon other countries for them,..   She has  a large supply of coal, in all,   I think,  nearly 1,500 mines now open.    In Hokkaido, geologists say there are 500,000,-  000 tons of good coal.    In Iwate, where  the recent   tidal  wave   destroyed   so  many lives and wiped out whole towns  and villages,may be found large quantities of iron ore.  Coal Mining.���Japan is not an iron  country, however, and though gold and  silver are found there, none of its mineral proucts, except coal and copper, are  important.  The principal coal beds found in  Japan belong to the Cenozoic formation, there being comparatively a small  portion of coal-bearing strata, in the  earlier Mesozoic formation. It is to  the Cenozoic formation that most of the  coal beds found in Hokkaido and in  Kiushiu, the two most important coal  districts in Japan, belong. The total  available coal from these two districts  and from a certain part of the northeastern portion of the main island, is  estimated at about 600,000,000 tons, at  depths not exceeding 500 feet below sea  level.  Nothing authentic is known as to the  date of the discovery of coal at this place.  The three mines, which are collectively  known as the Miike colliery, were purchased by the government "in 1878 from  the different proprietors for the sum of  841,000 (silver).    In 1889 after making  considerable improvements,the government   transferred the colliery "to. the  Mitsui firm   for  the   sum  ofSi,500,000  (silver).   There are several coal seams  in the colliery,  but only the first and  second can be   worked  to   advantage.  The first   averages   fully eight feet of  pure solid coal and is remarkably uniform in quality and thickness, the thickest part measuring over 20 feet.   The  second seam lies only G to 10 feet below  the first seam, the thickness averaging'  about (i feet near the outcrops, though  more   irregular   and uncertain in the  deeper   portion.     The   coal   from the  second seam is   inferior   in quality to  that  from the first,    it is  said that the  Miike mines are free from explosions of  gas and that naked  lights  have  been  used there without any danger.  iron produced from these districts in in  dustriai and mechanical purposes.  Between 1SSS and 1892 inclusive the  total of iron employed at military  arsenals was on an average :-i,''('l tons  yearly: that of the navy during-10 years  in shipbuilding and three years in arsenals was 6,3(51 tons, making a total of  10,0-22 tons.  Up to April, 1893, the total of railways  already existing, or in course of construction, was 2,031 miles, which required in rails, bridges, etc.. 130,231  tons. For repairs and construction  these railways would require an average of 17,209"tons a year. Between 1888  and 1892 inclusive the imports of rails  averaged 26,860 tons per annum. For  building merchant marine, which at the  end of 1892 amounted to 97,569 tons, and  of which 3,209 tons were built at home,  the total of iron employed between 1888  and 1892 inclusive, is estimated at 1,414  tons a year on an average. Again, between 1S88 and 1892 inclusive the total  employed at various iron works and for  other purposes, averaged 32,541 tons a  year. Therefore the annual consumption of iron in Japan at that time-was.  95.837.  Here then, is a need, without counting railway extension, of 100,000 tons  of iron and steel annually. Why cannot  the American manufacturer look after  this?'- A market of 82,000,000 or more  annually is worth looking after, and  while you are on the ground after this,  other business Mill come your way.  Gold and Silver Mining.���Silver is  produced in far larger quantities than  gold, the total number of private silver  mines, being 57 and that of silver copper  mines 136, besides many others where  silver is produced in combination with  other metals, in the production of the  white metal Akita surpasses all other  districts, its product in 1893 being  ��1,355,467 (silver) out of the total of  82,320,444 (silver) produced throughout  the country. Fifu, with a total of S332,-  403 (silver), and Fukushima, with ��255,-  169 (silver) , come next. The Inuai  silver mine in Akita, producing the  most important silver ores in Japan,  has been worked for about three centuries. After undergoing* various  vicissitudes, the mine was transferred  in 1884 to Mr. Furukawa Ichipei, the  largest mine proproprietor in Japan.  Two veins are worked at present, and  the chief ores are stephanite and inan-  ganite, containing 0.1 to 0.2 per cent, of  silver. The cost of mining ore containing an averge of 0.435 per cent, of silver  per ton.  The total output of gold in Japan in  1S94 was 23,696 ounces, and in 1895 it  was about 21,000 ounces. The quantity  of silver mined in 1894 was 1,956,938  ounces, and in 1895 it was 1,768,250  ounces.  We may say here that silver mining  in Japan"is now at its height, while  gold mining is somewhat declining. In  the principal gold and silver mines  machinery of American style is in use,  while in copper and lead mines machinery of German pattern is employed.  Only in the Ashio mine are electi ic  motors used, steam being used in the  important mines.  Copper Mining.���There are in Japan  six copper mines, yielding above 1,333,-  383 pounds per year Copper is second  in importance in the mineral industries  of Japan, coal being first. There are j  in Japan six mines.  Japanese copper as at present exported is not very pure, but is mixed with  various foreign ingredients. Its sale is  a matter of credit; the standard is not  uniform, consequently more or less disadvantage is unavoidable in the price it  fetches. The largest customer of  Japanese copper is Hong Kong, which  buys nearly 20.000,000 pounds every  year; next in order comes China, buying 6,000,000 pounds every year; Great  Britain, buying 4,000,000 pounds; British India, Germany and Korea taking  the balance, the total export of copper  amounting to 33,000,000 pounds, or 80  per cent, of the production of the country, its value being put at $4,200,000  (silver).

A great many people will come  j out from Dawson this fall. It is esti-  ! mated by  the   returning   miners that  anywhere Iron 10 million to 40 million  I dollars will be brought out of the Klondike this year.

The steamers Margaret, Bella Weir  and Victoria were high and dry at  Cuch Citv, about 400 yards from the  water. I'he river steamer Seattle, with  180 passengers on boark, which went  up the river last fall for Dawson,was on  June 7th high and dry on the banks  of the Yukon, about 25 miles above  Cuch City. The steamer Governor  Stonehain, with 160 passengers, is on  a bar at Fort Yukon, and the Hattie B.  is ashore 40 miles below Fort Yukon.  The steamers May West and St Michael  will be the first to reach Dawson City  this year.  Some claims are being offered on the  Klondike for 520. The poll tax is $45  and the dog tax S5.

Shafts Nos.  3 and 4 of the  Tamarack, both vertical,  are about 4,500  feet in  depth each, and  the Calumet and Hecla and Quency each  have several incline shafts nearly a mile  deep.  The Baltic mine will begin producing  copper not later than Aug. 1, and very  likely this month. A three-mile railway  extension will give communication between the mine and the stamp mill of  the Atlantic company, which is to treat.  Baltic copper.  Between ten and eleven thousand  workmen are at present employed by  the mines of the lake copper district.  This is by far the largest force ever worked and is an increase of nearly 4,000 men  in four years.  The Arcadian copper mine, a controlling interest in which was. recently  secured by leading stockholders of the  Standard Oil Company, is at present  working 200 men and will double the  force before Sept 1. A fifth shaft will be  started this month.  The Franklin Mining Company has  begun work on its new stamp mill on  Portage lake.

The exact  figures of the expenditure have not yet  been made up, but the surplus will be  as above stated. The deficit since 1893  has been over six millions. Canada har,  now reached an era of prosperity as well  as surpluses.  The Government have now under consideration the organization of the Yukon  territory under a new council to be appointed with the seat of government at  Fort Selkirk.. It is understood that  Major Walsh does not want to stay as  administrator, and that Wm. Ogilvie  will be appointed to take his place. All  other councillors will likely be taken  from the chief officials who are now out  there.    FUNNY    THINGS.  the  bargain  The Oil Wells.���Last July i there  arrived in the United States a party of  Japanese interested in the oil wells of  Japan. They are here now, studying  our methods of drilling and refining oil.  Petroleum sinking is one of the industries that has lately effected a signal  success in Japan In 1893 the total of  petroleum sections leased was 199, with  a total output of 3,320,707 gallons. Of  these, 14 sections yielded above 400,000  gallons per annum, with an aggregate  output of 2,829,181 gallons. In 1889 the  total yield was 2,218.679 gallons, and  therefore this yield was increased above  50 per cent, during the short period of  four or five years.  Kerosene-yielding localities in the  province of Echigo are quite abundant,  numbering more than 30, but of these  only three localities are famous, containing about 80 wells. These are all  wells, dug as ordinary wells are sunk,  the deepest being .756 feet. The daily  output exceeds 18,000 gallons. In another important oil locality the American boring process is used', the deepest  of some 50 wells reaching 1,800 feet, and         about 4.000  Gracie���Mamma, what does Santa  Glaus do after Christmas ?

DIRECT   FROM   DAWSON.  The following particulars, which can  be regarded as perfectly reliable, were  obtained from the Dawson City passengers :  The Yukon river opened atlDawson  May 8th. A party of 18 miners left  Dawson City with their gold in several  open boats on June 1st, and reached  St. Michaels on June 15th, travelling  a distance,of 1,800 miles in 14 days and  I1 J hours.  The river is eight feet higher than  ever before. In fact it is so high that  Dawson City has been partly inundated. There is a great deal of sickness  in the city and the death rate is from  three to four a day, typhoid, pneumonia  and scurvy being the most prevailing  diseases. The hospitals are tilled with  people, many of whom have had limbs  frozen during the winter.  The hospital church was burned to  the 'ground on June 4th last. The  Dawsouites just out report that there  are 1G,000 claims recorded and that  about 20() are on a paying basis. The  miners  are    very   much    put   out   in  The late Bill Nye was fond of telling  this story of his smaller daughter: At  the dinner table one day there was a  party of guests for whom Mr. Nye was  doing his best in the way of entertainment. A lady turned to the little girl  and said, "Your father is a very funny  man!" "Yes, when we have company,"  responded the child.  Frank Newsom, son of Mr. W. B.  Newsom of the well-known firm of law  stationers, Toronto, suicided in the St.  Claire Hotel, Detroit, on Monday night.  The unfortunate young fellow, who was  about 23 years old, had been addicted to  drink for sometime, but it was thought  that he had overcome the appetite by a  course of treatment which he had undergone. By his own request he was sent  out again travelling for the firm, but the  temptation proved too strong for him,  as he was seen in Detroit intoxicated. It  is supposed that he. shol himself while  in a fit of despondency. The young man  was born and brought up in Toronto,  and received his education at Wellesley  school and at Upper Canada college.  The famous old Clifton House on the  Canadian side at Niagara Falls was completely . destroyed by fire on Sunday  morning, June 26th. The house was full  of guests, all of whom, with their baggage, got out safely. The fire started in  a room over the kitchen, and owing to a  strong gale that was blowing the flames  spread over the entire house, despite the  tremendous efforts of the firemen from  both' the Canadian and American fire  halls. Some very comical things occurred during the excitement of the fire.  Two old valueless railroad signs were  tenderly conveyed to the adjoining park  and covered up with blankets, while rare  and valuable pieces of china, cut glass  and furniture, which had been used by  crowned heads of Europe,were recklessly  thrown from the windows and smashed".
