For the past week there have been  over one hundred locations recorded  in the Kaslo oflice, a great number of  which have been made in the White  Grouse, the Lardeau and other outlying districts, where higher altitudes  are* now being reached and some  very'' active prospecting is being  done. Prospectors are leaving Kaslo,  Ainsworth and Nelson in even larger  numbers than previously, and with  reasonably favorable weather some  tall exploring may be expected for  the month of July. There were over  eighty licenses issued during the past  week. 1 here have been a large  number of bills of sale recorded, but  with a few exceptions are unimportant. A quarter interest in the Golden  Eagle '.-Fraction, W hi'tewater camp,  has been transferred to Geo. Stomen.  A one half interest in the Hidden  Fraction, in Jackson Basin, has been  sold by M, D. Clements to Charlotte  Henderson. S. H. Green and R. F.  Green, of Kaslo, have turned over,  as per agreement, the Florence claim  to the Florence Mining & Development Co. at $12,500. Jas. Warner  and M. M. Gsotlie have given John  W. McKeehan a bond at $48,000 on  the Government and Valparaso claims  situated on Goat creek. It is a. 12-  month bond, and calls for $1500 by  July 20, and $3000 in four months,  balance in one year. John W. Mc:  Keehan has also taken a bond on the  Golden Rule and Sunset in the same  locality at $23,500. The payments  are $500 cash, ten per cent, in four  months and balance in twelve months.  THE   WAGOxV   ROAD.  .. The vital importance ot a wagon  road between Three Forks and New  Denver, in order to give all the towns  interested a means ot easy communication with each other has long been  recognized by all who are familiar  with the district. It is riot necessary  to point out the advantages of such a  road or why it should be constructed.  Any one in the district knows whv it  should be built. The citizens of Ncv  Denver have paid into the bank  $2,000 and the Government has guarantee! $3,500 towards the project. It  is absolutely necessary to have $9,000  in order to cairy out the work in a.  substantial manner, and if some of  the public spirited men of the upper  gulch towns will get in and push the  matter rock will be flying, on the road  in less than two weeks. AH that is  required to close up the deal is more  enthusiasm upon the part of those  interested the most. , Do not wait for  somebody else to'.dp She work, but get  in and drill yourselves. A little more-  push and a little more money will en-  H.ble us to have a road that will be a  credit to the Slocan, and do away with  waiting for/trains once a day between  here and Sandon. '  -  Cariboo .'-Creek.  The contracts for the wagon road  from Burton City to a point near  Mineral City, has been let to various  contractors. Work" will commence  this week. The government'.;grant  is $4,000, -and the claim owners  should be well pleased, as it is sel  dom that the government puts up  mongy for a road along a creek that  has not shipped a carload of ore.-  An Old Prospector Gone.  Old Father Hamilton, who has been failing for  some months past, and for the past week-or" two  lias heen confined to his bed in a dingy little  shack on the lake shore, gave up the ghost Jubilee  Day morn, about 10 o'clock. He was 05 or more  years of age; was a pioneer prospector and had  managed to accumulate considerable minim--  property. For some weeks prior to his deatlP  however, he was the subject of friendly charity'  and died intestate, never believing at any time  that he was seriously enough sick to warrant his  making a will. He has two sons living in California, who will l)c. notified of th.-ir father's  death.  Big As A Mule.  Tlie other day D. A. Van .Dom and Charley  MeNichol were taking-a walkover the Galena  Farm. On the Highland claim thev stopped to  examine "one of the posts, and in doing so ran  their hands over it. After leaving the post Van  looked back and saw what he thoiisrht was a rnu'e  or a Slocan City mosquito smelling- the post they  had just left. Van's partner-took a peep and instantly saw that the animal in question was a  large bear of the silver tip variety. The bear wis  evidently full of huckleberries, although Van and  Charley did nut have hue to properly investigate  the matter as thev had urirenl; business over in  Silverton. -  ROSSLAND   AS   SHE   IS.  (Our Own Correspondent.)  R >ssland. June 21.���Of course the chief item of  interest this week must be the "illigant" manner  in wiiicli Rossland   celebrated  the Queen's  dia_  ���mond jubilee. The decorations were exceedingly  pretty, and would not have belittled a city of ten  ���times the population we can boast of. but as Ross-  Ian 1 enjoys the high honor of being the chief  mining camp in tiie Dominion of Canada, valiant  .exertions were put forth by the various, committees and tlie ..city'council to sustain that reputation. A triumphal arch of evergreens, flags nnd  bun ting was erected at the junction of Columbia  avenue and Washington street, and another on  East Columbia ave represented the entrance gate  to Windsor castle. Even the enibattlemcnts'and  the square turrets were represented. Every house  on llu; principal streets displayed decorations in  colored cloth, Hags and evergreens, and several  fronts had tastefully designed devices in Chinese,  lanterns, which had a pretty effect at night-  Thc.'morning was rather- gloomy, after the terrific thunderstorm of the preceding night, but as  the day .advanced it became evident that we were  to he treated to '-Queen's weather." There were  probably 2000 visitors from surrounding towns,  aiid the streets were crowded at an early hour.  The booming of a royal salute of 21 guns shook  the houses to their foundations and awoke those  who had any desire to celebrate the holiday by an  extra sno zc between the blankets���sheets I should  say, but the weather lately has been too arctic for  any thing but blankctfs. The city band came out  shortly after breakfast, and than thc day's doings  were "on."       ..*,;"        '���'������.:' .''-'.-'  Two hundred school children���the. girls nil  dressed in white���each with a -small Union Jack  waving, were drawn around the streets in ten  4-horse wagons, headed by the band. - There was  also'a "Hieland inan'Viu costume, who "spield"  his tuneful lay on the. bagpipes wncn the bands-..  men were taking a breather. Thc fire brigade  brought up the rear. A. large stand had been  erected on the vacant lot next the Kooteney hotel,  at the foot of Washington. street, and here the  mayor and Hon. T. Mayne Daly, the chairman  of the day. delivered short but patriotic speeches.  The children sang "God Save the Queen'* and  "Red, White and Blue," and the youngsters  thoroughly enioyed the situation, even if they did  not understand the import of the words they sang  Probably half the children present.were of American parentage, from which it. would seem that a  few months' residence under the British flag has  taught them (the parents) very much broader "and  expanded-ideas of tolerance aiid true freedom than  thOvSe exhibited by , the American press 'and-the  generality of American>peoplewho have never  crossed 'the bouridury line of* their own. conn try.  The situation Avas certainly unique.  During- the afternoon there were athletic 'sports  and horse racing on Columbia ave., lacrosse and  baseball out oh the baseball ground, and considerable attractions in various parts of the city. But  the. rock-drilling contest ,although badly managed,  was the event par excellence for the great majority of the mining fraternity. W. M. Ross and  C. W. Smith, of the Elise. won the first prize,  $200, with. 34�� inches; M. Gaffney and T. Burns,  of the War Eagle, second,; ^KiO, 34 & inches; Joe  Davis and Jerry O'Connell, 33$ inche's. Ross and  Smith d rilled right th rough the rock wi th their  eig-hth drill; ..and started a new hole. Fifteen  drills and fifteen minutes were allowed each  team.   ��� .,   .'���'��� '���**"- ' <  . In the evening some rockets and colored star-  showers were sent up from Poorman Hill, on  Red mountain, and also from the top of Red  mountain, where at 9:30 a large bonfire was lit by  Messrs. McGraney and Blaton. Fires were also  burning on the summit of Columbia and Kootenay  mountain and on the side of Deer Park mountain.  All the hotels and refreshment places reaped a  pretty, good harvest, judging from the masses of  humanity, which crowded the barrooms. The  celebration was wound up with a ball in the  opera house, in which all the notabilities and  many of the disabilities participated, with our  elderly juvenile mayor leading the grand march.  The day passed without any,contretemps taking-  place; no rowdyism, no. fighting, no drunkenness  ���visible to the passer-by���but there was many an  aching head the next day. It was a good-tempered, well-dressed crowd,'but one could not help  pondering on the.fact that many-yes, very  many���ol those well-dressed, sleek-looking gen tie-  men who were seemingly so .happy, in listening  to the infantile voices singing "God Save the  Queen/'would feel no compunction in "doing  up" an honest, unsuspicious man, in a mining  deal next day, or the same day for that matter".  Ever been "(lone up'* in a mining deal? I have.  The decorations will stand until July 1st, Dominion Day, when'there is to be more celebrating and j  more shekels for the.drawers of beer and openers  of bottles. A hotel in Rossland is better than-a  gold mine any day. ,  I have just returned from a week on the hills.  ,Vv"c occupied a nice, water-tight ing- cabin on a  'high bluff overlooking Big Sheep creek and close  to Sophia'mountain, which district is coining into  prominence for the very rich copper-gold lodes  which arc: being opened up. The rain came  down in torrents for, two days and on the third  day it turned to snow. Fancy opening your door  on a Juno morning and finding a foot of snow on  the ground. That 'was our experience on Friday  of last week. Towards evening it commenced to  freeze, and the crisp snow crunched under one's  feet just the same"as it would in January. But  with a big log fire inside and a. hole in tlie roof to  let the smoke -out-we were, happily oblivious to  anv freak of the elements outside. Wc also built  a Inure fire in front of the door, and tiie weather  was so cold that on o"eoftlie party going out  about 11 p. m. he found a rabbit sitting by the  fire warming himself. One of the boys had a  small revolver, and he fired at poor bunny from  the doorway. The shot took effect and next day  we had boiled rabbit for dinner. We also had a  visit from a full-grown porcupine, which I would  not allow them to shoot. He was almost as big as  a. shepp. We kept 1 dm prisoner all night and allowed him   to depart scott  free   in the.   im>rniu.ir.  One'night" we all turned out and four shots were  fired at a bear which had been i;ramping around'  the cabin and sniffing at tlie cracks between the  logs. Bruin was spiting up when first seen .-but he  soon took himself off up the trail, and was lost i>  sight in the gloom of the big pine trees.  Building operations in and around thc city are  almost at a standstill, the fret -being that there are  empty houses with the sign "To Let" to be seen in  ���almost every direction, and it is becoming painfull evident that housebuilding- has been overdone. At the same .time there is a large percentage of the population S'ill "baching" in the  shacks which thickly dot Ihe landscape on' the  Corbin estate and further afield.  With all these drawbacks, however, Rossland  is still the finest town in the interior. A friend of  ���mine who left here last week writes me from  Kaslo that.compared with Rossland. the* city on  Kooteifay lake is like a graveyard.- Nearly all.  the male ."population are out on the hills.. A  gentleman who has just visited New Denver,  Sandon land Nelson tells me that none of those  places can begin to-compare with Rossland from  a business point of view. He says the business  done in Rossland and the signs of prosperity so  noticeable here are not to ho approached by any  other town in West Kootenay.  The'public schools are closed for six weeks, and  the .teachers'have betaken themselves to various  distant scejics for recuperation and recreation  Our American .population will celebrate the  "Glorious Fourth" in the oldtinie manner. Mayor  Scott has given his permission for the triumphal'  arches and other jubilee decorations to stand until the oth of July. By the way, the American  flags in the jubilee decorations' were unusually  scarce and very small. The'dnly instance of tlie  flag of "Ould'Oireland" was in the posioffiee,  where its brilliant green color and its emblems of  ha.ru and crown gave a conspicuous aiid. verv  pleasant notification that Erin was still "in it." *  The postoffiec officials- are' waking, up. The  issue of the Ledge of Thursday, the 24th, actually  reaohed Rossland last night. Friday, the 2:YAi. ��  don't see how it was done, but it was done and we  shall have to take back the epithets oJ "lnos?-  ��� ba'c'ks" and "fossils" which have been so freely  .bestowed on C.'-fl Fletcher and his sattelites bv  the press of Kootenay.   ���  . A. N. Paterson has resigned his position as city  assessor on being appointed to a post in tlie customs.

The London Financial News editorially refers  to the premium on sovereigns in that city, and  says 479,122 of that coin brought by the steamer  from Sydney were "bought up in the open market at a premium, i. e., that while the happy recipient could only realize ��179,122 sterling for his  479,122 sovereigns b}r sending them into the Bank  of England, the wily bullion brokers had paid  him a few hundred pounds over that amount, and  still managed to make a brokerage for themselves.  The thing sounds like fairy tale finance, but it is  strictly business.   For some time past the Bank  of England has charged 78s. per ounce standard  for bar gold, and the open market has consequently also epioted bars higher;- generally 77s. lid. to  77s. ll^d.   The mint price is only 77s', lOkb; so if  foreign bankers receive orders to take gold from  the bank they would save lid. per ounce standard  or a little over IA per mille by taking this gold in"  thc shape of sovereigns from the bank instead of  iu bars, provided the sovereigns are full weight.  But -that is just what  Bank-of England export)  sovereigns never are.   Their average deficiency I  is rather over lh per mille; so, speaking generally,  the imiee of 78s. for bar gold still protects our  standard coins from export.   But the case is different if'nice new sovereigns arrive fresh from the  '..mints of Australia.   There is very little loss on  such coins, and consequently the open market is  in a position to bid a premium for them.   Allowing h per mille for short weight and h per mille  for brokerage, the buyer is still in a position'to  pay �� per mille premium, which means that for  rhe 479.122 sovereigns a cheque for ��479,362 could  be obtained.   The business seems strange, but it  is profitable.   Of course, light sovereigns, or even  sovereigns of average weight will not do; these  are sent into the Bank of England���that is the  Gresham law.   As a consequence a premium on  gold is  in a certain  sense  created in   London,  which makes us look with less severity on similar  experiences elsewhere in the world.   This week it  seems that Russia has secured the heavy sovereigns; but the demand is so great that there will  be competition for them in tne future.   Already  telegrams  have  come   from   Vienna   enquiring  whether  any  more of  these  bright little  c >ins  Could be secured."  Two small and lively Louisville urchins were  attired in their best the other afternoon to attend  the matinee with an auntie, and, in the interval  before her appearance, escaped just a few seconds  from under the watchful eye of their careful  mother. When they reappeared after this brief  absence the youngest boy, Donald, was in a condition not to be described, but which necessitated  at once a change of linen and general refurnishing before lie'could be seen "in polite society  again.  "Donald! Donald!" exclaimed his indignant and  long-suffering mother, "what do you mean?  Where have you been? Now I shall have to keep  auntie waiting while I dress you all over again.  You are a naughty, naughty boy."  '���Pshaw!" retorted Donald, in an injured, defensive tone, "that ain't nothin'. *Wliaty' makin'  The  1  estaurant  Is one of the Best and Aged Cafes  in the  ei -������-,.  Silvery Slocan.

A missionary-bishop who had been six weeks iii  coming to the convention in Winnipeg, most o  the way in a canoe, began his address by saying  that he would speak for himself and for a brother  bishop, who unfortunately pould not be present.  He was sorry to say that his brother's diocese had  gone to the dogs! A general gloom followed these  words. '������"'.  nHe went on to say that the bishop had found so  many inquirers after religion among the Eskimos north of Hudson Bay that he had to build a  church. As there was no wood, he used whales'  ribs for rafters, covering them with tanned walrus hide, and so made a church to hold eighty  persons.

A small orator made bis debut in front of a large  ' audience at the West  Side Clubhouse  the other  night, and it is safe to predict that he will not follow in the footsteps of Demosthenes after his recent experience, says .the Chicago Tribune.   His  deluded but loving family, who had egged him  on to this sacrifice, were mostly with him iu thc  dressing room. His age being seven, they wanted  him to be sure that his banes did not fall over his  eves and obscure his view of his mother, father,  aunt, uncles and cousins in reserved seats directly  in li'oiit.  "Now, Johnny," said his mother, "be sure you  make a nice bow."  '���Vou bet i will," said Johnny, \-�� ith a swagger.  "And let vour hands hang easily by your side;  like this,"and his father struck an attitude.  "Of course," assented Johnny.  "Are you sure you know your piece?" asked  bis sister, anxious to have hini .succeed.  "Yep," said .lohnny. and he recited the first  i wo lines:  I wish I had a little d^-,  To pat him on the head.  ������That's right; he'll do splendidly,'" remarked  his mother. "*��� You'll iro on in a minute now, and  we must get into our seats.

Marcus Daly, the Montana millionaire, who. won  the Belmont stakes in New York recently, retains  much of the bluffness of the mines from which his  money was dug.  A typical racing dude, white spats, turned up |  trousers and peanut hat to fit his peanut head,  asked for an introduction to the copper king.  Chappie touched Daly's outstretched hand with  his own limp and daintily manicured fingers and  said:  ���. " A w. so pleased to meet you, weally.' ��� I' ve often  heard of you, Mr. Daly."  Daly" put his hand in his pocket, looked at his  new acquaintance a moment and replied: L  Jacobsdn St Co  The-  you. are.  Chappie said afterward that-Mr. Daly might be  "vewy wich." but there was no doubt that he was  "vewy wude." ' ' :  '  Germany's Snail Farms.  The  edible white snail  vated on small farms  in  is  scientifically  culti-  Fcrmany.

HIS   NERVE   WON,  How   Quantrell Worked  a Bluff  When  Covered With a Rifle.  Current stories regarding the  career of Quantrell, the noted guerilla, who harrassed the Union soldiers,  have resulted in bringing to light the  fact that his most thrilling, and probably his most narrow, escape from  death occurred in Danville. Quantrell made but one excursion through  this part of Kentucky, but it was a  bold dash and he left a trail of blood  behind him; more than one federal  soldier or sympathizer being found  with the Quantrell mark���the bullet  hole in the forehead just between the  eyebrows. On the day of Quantrell's  ciose call he had arrived in Danville  'from Iiustonville, in Lincoln countv  At Iiustonville he had halted to lay  in a fresh stock of horseflesh, and  there some of his band had murdered  a union ���'���officer. A woman who had  been in Hustonville preceded the  guerillas to Danville, and ' when  Quantrell reached this city she recognized him and spoke to him, calling  him by name. Quantrell simply  smiled and said to her: "Why, madam, you were never more mistaken  in your life. I am; Capt. -���- of the  federal arm v."  Quantrell and all his men were attired in federal uniforms, and were  posing as federal scouts. They halted in Danville, and as federal soldiers were in the liabit of passing in  - and out of the town in small squads,  no particular attention was paid to  the guerillas until they had been in  the town five or six hours. The  woman who had accosted Quantrell  upon his arrival believed that he had  deceived her, and she told a young  federal lieutenant, then in town,  what she thought about the men who  had arrived that morning. Qunan-  trell and his men were going about  town pretty much as they pleased,  lounging around the hotels and saloons, feeling perfect security. The  lieutenant, from' the description furnished by the woman* and from what  he had heard of Quantrell, was con  vinced that the fine-looking fellow  masquerading in federal clothing,  was none other than- fehe guerrilla,  and determined to kill,or capture  him.  The lieutenant procured a carbine  and started upon a hunt for his man.  He finally caught sight of him walking down the main street of the town.  Quantrell was alone. He walked the  length of several squares down one  side of the street and started up the  other side, the lieutenant with the  carbine in his wake all the time,  waiting for an opportunity to corner  his man. About the middle, of the  main square Quantrell entered a saloon, stepped to the bar, and called  for a drink.  - Just as Quantrell reached over the  bar railing to take up a glass, he  glanced into a big mirror against the  wall and noticed the federal lieuten-  nnt entering with the carbine ready  to fire. Quantrell very coolly set the  glass down, turned about and faced  his pursuer. The carbine had by  this time been brought to the shoulder of the lieutenant, its muzzle was  within three feet of the guerrilla's  breast, and ^the eye which looked  down the sinning barrel was keen  and cool. Quantrell dared not m ak e  a false move, and he was x>owerless  to protect himself by force. His  heavy overcoat was buttoned up to  his chin, making the pistols buckled  at his waist' useless. He gazed at  the lieutenant very complacently lor  a brief period, smiled, and said:  "How now, comrade; what are yoil  going to do with that guii?"  you move  "You are  "Shoot you like a dog if  a muscle," was the reply.  Quantrell. You have played it for a  long time, but now you're my prisoner.    March into that room there."  Quantrell glanced to an open door  at the end of the baiy but didn't obey  the command. It was not his intention to do so. His nerve was superb,,  and his self-possession complete.  "Ah, I see," he remarked quietly.  "You take me for Quantrell, but you  wrong me, I assure you. My resemblance to that scoundrel has been  most provoking. Permit me to.call  my orderly sargeant and I will show  you that I am as true to the union  as you are. He has all of my  papers."  The lieutenant looked surprised as  well as somewhat confused, and  Quantrell noted his discomfiture.  This was a signal tor the deception  to be redoubled, and so he continued:  "I have also heard stories about  the guerilla being in this section.  To my certain knowledge he is now  in Kentucky, and you are simply  making a fool of yourself. Put down  your gun, and as long as we are in  the same cause let us be friends,"  The lieutenant, completely nonplussed at Quantrell's cool effrontery  and considerably abashed, told him  to call his orderly, but kept the car  bine ready to fire. Oh the street not  faraway Quantrell saw some of his  men talking, and he called- to one of  them to enter. The man went into  the saloon, and as soon as he saw his  chief covered with a carbine drew his  heavy revolver.  ^ "Stop,"-shouted Quantrell. ''Not:  ��6 fast. Put up you pistol. Our friend  here has heard that I am Quantrell .-  It's amusing.- Show him our papers  from the secretary of war, in order  that this embarrassment may be removed."  ; "All right, captain," was the reply,  as the man began feeling in an outside pocket for his papers, still holding his revolver, howeyer, in his  right hand. He approached the  lieutenant as he started to withdraw  his hand from his coat, but instead of  bringing out the papers he suddenly,  with the guickness of a wildcat,  sprang upon the young federal, felled  him to the floor and held him fast,  with the muzzle of the revolver  against his head, as he cried:  ' 'These are the papers you are looking for. We always have them on  hand for such --as you. Must I give  him the old mark, captain?"  "No; let the gentleman up," replied Quantrell.  The lieutenant arose and was disarmed, and expressed himself as very  well satisfied with the papers. Then  the trio took a drink together. As  Quantrell and the lieutenant continued the conversation the other guer-  rilla'slipped quietly out, passed the  word, and in ten minutes more Quantrell's horse was standing in front of  the barroom ready to mount. He  shook hands with the man who had  given him one of the worst scares of  his life, left the saloon and rode  away. Before the lieutenant could  collect his theughts Quantrell and his  band were far on their road toward  Louisville.  A carload of Sash and Doors and  one of Oats and Feed at Bourne Bros.

The Kaslo Hootagain made a venomous attack last week upon the  building of the wagon road between  New Denver and Three Forks. The  article which plainly showed ignorance of the subject and petty jealousy  upon the part of the writer, is a fair  sample of what a blatant idiot can do  with a pen. It he has any friends  thej' should keep an eye on him,.  especially when it rains  New Vancouver Smelter Scheme.  "The most thrilling,incident lever  saw  in   a   courtroom," remarked   a  Western   attorney   the   other    day,  "was in Southern Kansas.   The senior lawyer of the county was a distinguished-looking and courteous gentleman 'of the old school,' who had little  patience   with   the  joking   always  going on  during court recess.    He  was" exceedingly   near-sighted, but  had a habit of laying his glasses on  the table during his speeches to the  jury.    One  day, as   his   back   \vas  turned to the other lawyers,, one of  them picked up the glasses, and with  a  bit of  mucilage   fastened   to   the  lenses pieces of tissue paper which  exactly covered the glass���not particularly noticeable, but at the same  time preventing vision through them.  Soon the owner of the glasses came  back to the table to examine some  papers for reference in  his address.  He put on the glasses, looked at the  paper,   adjusted   them    again���and  then a pallor overspread his face that  was pitiful to see.  " 'My* God, gentlemen, I am blind!  I have feared it for years!' he exclaimed, and dropped his head on his  hands. "  "For an instant the courtroom was  hushed. Even the practical joker  must have felt remorse at the evident suffering of his victim. Before  anyone could speak or the sheriff rap  for order the attorney lifted his head,  took off the glasses and he had his  sight again. His face flushed as he  rubbed the tissue paper from the  lenses and he stood up, an angry and  excited man.-  "���'If I knew who did that dastardly  trick, if I knew who had brought that  minute of grief to me,' he broke out,  'I swear I would kill him.' He left  the courtroom and the judge adjourned the session for the day. I  never .want' any ".."more practical  joking."  In the Days of '49.  Where the gambler flourished  in  air his glory, and the glint of gold  passing from hand to hand on all  sides was too common to vexcite comment, it need not be wondered at  that no limit of price put upon the  "good .things of lite" would prevent  men enjoying them.  Recalling a scene in illustration of  this fact, the writer may mention an  incident of the month of July, 1849.  Encamped with his companions on  She banks of the Sacramento "'where  Sacramento  city   was beginning to  he  broiled quail, $2;  a roast duck,   $5;  beef; pork or mutton for one, $1.

'Tt  was  no uncommon thing," says the writer  above quoted, ' 'to see posted  at  the  door of ah eating house as an induce  ment for the  hungry to enter, 'potatoes   today,' or   'potatoes  at   every  meal.'"   Then ag��in the question of  attendance at the hotels and eating  houses was an important one.    The  proprietor who could obtain the ser  vices of a pretty waiter girl  was fortunate indeed, 'for the attraction of a  graceful figure and charming face in  those clays, when woman was a scarce  article in social affairs, was a money-  making   magnet   indeed.

There are several points on which the citv and thc  promoters are unable to agree, and  Mr. Symons in a letter referring to  these points, says: "And it,is perhaps needless for me to point out that  the proposed action of a somewhat  like character in Seattle, Wash., and  which is aimed at controling the  British Columbia, ore output, will be  a distinct disadvantage to your city,  if consummated, and shows the desirability of aiding the proposed  undertaking at this point, if it is  hoped to secure the full benefit of' $1 to $3.  flic mining operations in this itov-; The general run of  ince." more'luxurious dishe?  daring  take on the semblance of a town  witnessed the arrival of a  speculator who had come all the way  from the Mission of San Jose with a  wagon load of potatoes .-and onions for  sale.

PROPOSED ANNEXATION OF HAWAII  Mr. Crowley Exposes the Plot  to Wipe  Out tlie Hawaiian Nation.  .   ;: -      ,-       ��� ._     '   '������       ��� .'���.������//  The proposed annexation hy the United States  of the Hawaiian Islands, without so much as asking any one's permission���not even the natives-  is a stroke of audacity without a parallel in  modern times. It is a proceeding which is jus.}  now challenging universal attention and evoking  comments most uncomplimentary to what may  be termed the "New Republicanism"of the Jingo-  ite whig of the republican party, now in power.'  To wipe out a nation of 59,000 people, who have  for over half a century.been recognised as such;  sending to and receiving from, every government  in Christendom envoys; a government under  which life and property were ever secure, ruling  over a people who were in the front of law abid  ing nations,,and whose flag was respected abroad,  surely the obliteration of such a people from the  fan lily of nations jvdl he enquired into and our  dear Uncle Samuel, who is ever drawing texts  from the Declaration of Independence, for the  moral instruction of benighted royalists will be  required to give his reasons why the nation known  as Hawaii is to be annexed by him, without even  the formality df saying to its people "by your  leave."        *  The question is one in which Canada, as a maritime nation of the Pacific, is deeply interested,  and should be anxiously concerned.  With Plonolulu' in possession of an erratic  political dyspeptic, subject to periodical tits of  Anglo-mania, our 'ships would never be sure of  honest treatment in this "cross-roads of the Pacific" on their way to the Orient or to Australia;  But the morality of the question is the feature of  interest to me who spent twelve years among-, these  simple, honest, good natured people. They never  injured an American in person or property, and  why should they be robbed of all they have and  hold Idear; their naticn.il life, theii flag and their  name as a people, by, the seli-stvied "Americans"  who came as missionaries with the honey of  Christianity on their lips but avarice and greed  in their hearts. They came most Of these missionaries, from around Connecticut state, and infused  with the spirit of the "wooden riut-megmerchant"  they had mortgage form blanks between the  leaves of their bibles, and taught the simple  islanders the art *md mystery .of mortgaging'their  lands for "trade" in the shape of goods that the  sleek-tongued 'missionary imported. These same  "men of God" m their zeal for the salvation of the  benighted islanders, (whom* they termed heathens,) gave valuable hymn books in exchange for  corner lots, and as an old chief once expressed it,  he was told to look up to heaven, and having  gazed starward for three years he thought he  would look on his fraternal sod for a change, but  it was no longer his. .  It is the progeny of these same missionaries���  who own.nearly all the native's land���that are  clamoring for arnexation to the United States.  Not one of these five hu. d.-ed tf the missionaries'  children is today a pivacher of the gospel that  their father's professed, which in itself is a suffici  ent commentary on them.  The reasons given by Secretary of State Sherman in justification of the annexation of Hawaii  are most interesting. The sinuous sophistry based  on a jumble df lies which Mr. Sherman has  patched into a report to the president, justifying  the?proposed robbery, will not deceive anyone  outside the cabinet incubator.

In the marble room of the  capitol Shelby met Senator Harris and greeted  him effusively.   The two had not met since 1S86,  when they were both members of the "Carlotta  colony" in Mexico. Harris growled at Shelby,  "I don't know you. suh." "Why, I'm Shelby;  Joe Shelby." Harris talked with him rather  icily a little while about the old times, and then  Shc'lby disappeared. After he had gone the sena  tor said: "I donJt see how lie had the impudence  to speak to me. Me an' Pap Price and Governor  Allen, of Louisiana, were down at Carlotta when  that rebel chicken stealer came along. We had  fixed up a little distillery, an'I had made fo'  bottles of the finest liquor, suh, that you ever  tested. This Shelby drank one bottle of it the  fust day.

THE    CHAMPION    FEMALE    BOXEIt  She Is ii Devqixt .'Christian   and  Contributes Larg-ely to Ghai'Ity-  a  devout  Christian and  the manner of a boxer at  Probably the greatest female boxer \siio has  ever visited the Northwestern country is Miss  Cecil Richards, of Chicago. This lady is tlie undisputed champion boxer of the world. She  visited Spokane recently on a purely business  trip and left only the other day for her home in  Chicago. During her stay at Spokane a match  between her and Kitty Morris, another female  boxer of some 'note, was pulled off quietly in-  British Columbia, about twelve miles from Rossland. This bout was for a $400 stake and Avas so  successfully handled that the authorities are still  ignorant of tlie fact-that it ever took place. A  party of sports from Chicago and also a few from  Montana passed through Northport, together with  the principals, on the 17th of last month'and proceeded to the scene of the contest, Avhich Avas  fought on'the turf. When the contest Avasover,  the party took the first train out for Spokane,  and it Is doubtful whether anyone in the vicinity  has ever heard of it to this day. Miss ���'Richards  Avon, in two short rounds, after a A'ery exciting  andstubborn battle:  ,    This girl of the gloves, for she is but 2"0, has  been ..boxing for over four  years.   Of  course,  Richards is not her reall true name.   When she  was b jm, she Avas a twig on a family tree that  bore another cognomen.   She is altogether different from'���-preebneeived ideas of what a female  fighter might be.   She is a decidedly handsome  woman,  and  anyone avIio  expects to  see   an  Amazon, a Cuban  Avarrior  or a strapping six-  footer will be terribly disappointed.   She stands  five loot six inches, the adorable height in women  and in condition Aveighs only 130 pounds.   Many  a woman of more domestic habits is more mascu-,  Jinely'"muscled than is this fair fighter.   SheAyas  born into an athletic family, two of her brothers,  being particularly prominent Avith the glOA'es.   So  she had an inherited bicep and the will to use it,  and seeing the remuneration for fistic encounters  Avas gbod'slic adopted it-as a profession just the  same'as anyone else would choose a calling.   It  has never "been  necessary to  entreat Avomen to  follow in tlie trodden paths,of men Avhen that path  leads on to fortune.   Her first appearance iu public was, an exhibition bout  Avith a noted feather  weight fighter avIio happened through her native  city.   She Avas so impressed with the sliOAving she  made against this man that she was induced to go  to New Orleans and box Annie Greggorv, whom  she defeated easily. ;  After this contest she Avas matched Avith Jennie  Xeison at the same place. It Avas a great contest,  and several thousands of dollars changed hands  To begin with she i:  doesn't appear to have  ������>11-    *  She has done a great deal for charity and it is a  well known fact that a large -percentage of her  earnings are given to help suuport the Children's  Hospital of Chicago. _ *'";.',  Her very latest in the realm of fistiaua was to  offer to Avager $1000 that Kid Lavigne, or any  other light Aveight, could not stop her in six  rounds. Her money was posted but the SaginaAv  lad has uot yet covered it. He doesn't appear  anxious to do battle Avith this female champion  of the Avorld. The feather weight \boxer with  Avhom Miss Richards boxed her first public exhibition has been with her ever since, acting in the  capacity ot trainer, and it has been quietly rumored about that they will shortly be married.  Mr. C. E.Baker, a Avealthv sporting man o<  Memphis, Twin., is Miss Richards' manager and  attends to all business for her.  A Wonderful Undertaliina',  What will  be the most gigantic enterprise in  the way of tunnel digging has been commenced  in Colorado.   The main bore will be 20 miles long,  whlie subsidiary  tuiinels Avill increase the total  mileage tr 50, and are to be dug out of the rock on  which rests Pike's Peak and adjoining mountains.  The estimated cost is .��2O,o6o,O0U,and the company  expect to net that amount baclc���and more too���  from the ore that will be extracted during the  progress of the Avork. The tunnel work will start  at the foot of the mountain leading up to Pike's  Peak, and on the opposite side, a distance of six  miles from Cripple Creek. The two gangs of men  Avill Avork toward each other. As the main tunnel Avill pass 7000 feet b- n a h several rich mini' g  camps, the result'of the work will be Avatciieu  with great interest by mining men throughout  the world, and may bring about another revolution in the system of mining.

Miss  Richards  Avas again ,vic-  torious. ;  After her go Avith Miss Nelson she was looked  upon as a ���marvel in thc pugilistic world, and it.  was hard to get aii3rone \vith sufficient nerve to  meet her. ,  Finally Minnie Davis was sent for and another  match was made for the little Chic'ago Avonder.  They battled near Ncav Orleans for a purse of  $1000. The contest was a pretty one from the tap  of the bell until Miss Davis was. counted and  Cecil hung another scalp at her slender Avaist.  Jennie Nelson had ;made such a good sliOAving  with Miss Richards that her backers thoaght she  was capable of vanquishing thc lady from the  windy city, s > another contest was arranged for  Cecil, with Jennie Nelson, but it Avas the same  story���Miss Nelson was again defeated.  Then the fair tighter sighed sighed for ucav  worlds to conquer and came to the Pacific  Coast.  About this time Lansing Rowan Avas getting  quite a reputation, for she had openly challenged  Jim Corbett at the ring side at San Francisco before he boxed with Tom Sharkey. Miss Rowan  afterward boxed six rounds with Corbett and  .made such a creditable showing that she Avas  justly styled the "female champion of America."  Miss* Richards Avas given a match with Miss  Rowan. It took place last'December at Los  Angeles and was for a stake of ��1,500. Fifty  people paid $10 each to sec the sport. Miss RoAvan  was head and shoulders over ,Ceeil in height and  also had an advantage of twelve pounds in  Aveight, and her reach Avas much longer. Cecil  boxed as she had never boxed before and after  tliey fought scA'en rounds Miss Rowan was unable  to continue and Cecil was declared the winner.  AH this time back in Australia Avas * a female  boxer, Mrs. Hattic Moore, avIio had heard much  of Lansing RoAvan and was imported to America  for the express purpose of beating her. She Avas  accompanied by her husband, jack Moore.Ian  Australian pugilist. When she arrived at San  Francisco from the antipodes she learned that she  avus too.late and that Cecil Richards had accomplished the feat that she had traveled thousands of  miles to accomplish.  Mrs. Moore, immediately challenged Lansing  Rowan's conqueror. The'match Avas.'made and  pulled off two weeks later at West Berkeley, Cal.,  un the evening of January 17,-181)7. ��� It was for  .���fi'iiO a side and ihe female, "championship of the  world.  After a great battle of tive rounds Cecil  Avas the.  Avinner again.  Mrs. Moore was not satisfied and  . clamored for a return match, Avhicli was readily  granted by Cecil.   They mot for Ihe second time  a. month-later  at   Oakland, Cal.   Their  second  contest, although devoid of brutality, Avas hotly  contested all   through  and the  champion   from  Chicago A\as once more a Avinner, this time in five  rounds.  .    Miss Richards then came north and met Kitty  Morris, Avith the result as mentioned above.   Slie  lett Spokane the other day for her home at Chicago', to   take  a much   needed  rest.   Mr. ��� W. O.  Johnson, a well-knoAvn dramatist and author, is  iioav writing a play in which Miss Richards aa*ill  star next season.   "The girl from Vassal-'" Avill be  tlie title of the piece.   It is a pretty little farce  comedy with musical parts and featuring a (.luetic  women.   She Avill give an exhibition bout at each  performance with her trainer.  Miss Cecil comes from a veiy wellto-do Chicago  fa mil v. Her father is a well known dry goods  merchant of that city, and it is neddless to state  that he is indeed proud of his youngest daughter.  Alrhouti-h Cecil knoAvs Iioav to use fists so well  slie has certain personal traits that Avill probably  unlit her for the r >b' <'>f a.professional fighter.
