At present some 85 men are
employed at the mine. The

Windermere District.
Mr. Thomas Starbird returned
from the Windermere district on
Monday. Mr. Starbird says although the season was late when
prospecting commenced much
honest work has been done.
Tliere are already several very
fine mines in the district, and
others will certainly be added be
fore long. For a young country
the rate at which it now opened
up is wonderful.
Development work on the Hot
Punch consists of one incline
shaft 70 feet in length, and a
tunnel, wliich is now in 35 feet.
The trend of the vein is north
and south, and dips at an angle
of 85 degrees. The ledge is from
2 to 4 feet in width with a pay
steak- from a foot to a foot and a
half of solid galena carrying
copper and gold. The ledge has
been stripped for a distance of
000 feet, showing ore for the entire length of the cut.
Messrs. Kimpton, Stark and
Harrison have shipped 20 tons
of ore to Kaslo, which cost $80
per tou to have it packed down
the mountain to the Salmon
Beds,
A large number of prospects
are under various stages of development, ull having good
showing of ore.
TO KILL THE KAISBB.
Plot Hatched in Alexandria Frustrated by the Egyptian Polico.
Alexandria, Egypt, Oct. l-l—
The Alexandria police have arrested nine Italian anarchists
since last night aud have thereby frustrated a plot against Emperor William, now on his way
to the Holy land to bo present at
the consecration of the Church
of our Savior at Jerusalem.
The first was a cafe-keeper, a
well known anarchist, in whose
house the polico discovered two
wire-bound bombs of great
strength and full of bullets.
This arrest was made in consequence of the notification from
the Italian consul general at
Cairo that two anarchists had
left Cairo for Port Said,
The police investigation showed that the arrested cafe-keeper
had bribed the steward of a
steamer sailing today from Alexandria to Port Said and Syria to
take on board a number of
bombs. Apparently the anarchists intended originally to use
the bombs a* the Palais Abidin
at Cairo while Emperor William
and the khedive were there.
When the kaiser decided not
to visit Egypt the anarchists
changed their plans and decided
to attack him in Palestine. The
German consulate has expressed
its warmest thanks to the government. The Cairo anarchists
who left for Port Said have not
yet been arrested.
The Windfall.
This property is situated south
is*»*t of the North Star group.
We learn that the owner, Hank
Eller, has recently uncovered a
body of galena.
Southern Cross.
EL J. Walsh has taken a large
force of men to Boulder creek to
work on the Southern Cross.
Tbe ore on the property is a
free milling gold quartz.
Ore From the Sullivan Group.
Mr. E. C. Smith, manager of
the Sullivan group, came down
from the mine ou Sunday. Mr.
Smith says that the proporty is
looking better every day. The
vein is about 120 feet between
this walls, and on the hanging
wall side there is about 80 feet
of clean shipping ore. The vein
inatter between the clean ore and
the foot wall is composed of
solid galena and iron, capped
with carbonates. Mr. .Smith
left some beautiful specimens of
galena and carbonates at the
pkospectoh office. The average of five samples taken at
different points across the ore
body showed the following
values:-$1)0.24; $27.72; $20.32;
#60.92, and $71,511; or an average value of $-15.15 per ton.
The company will push development work on its big property. A wagon road is now being
constructed from tho  mine  to
' Kimberley, where it will connect
with the North Star road. The
company has ordered a boiler,
pump, hoist and other machinery, which is expected at Fort
Steele by the time the wagon
rojul is completed. Manager
fi'. P. Hogan is expected here by
the 20th, then all arrangements
will bo completed for tho dev
fcopmeul of the properly.

Italian admiral with his demonstration of force, insisted a demand of Italy, not based on the
award, should be accepted,
"A weak country has to yield
under such circumstances but it
is never compelled to run tho

Obituary.
The grim reaper was again ou
his fatal rounds on Tuesday
evening and selected Mr. John
McMahon as his victim. Mr.
McMahon was taken ill a few
days previous to his death, and
was taken to the St. Eugene
Hospital. Mr. McMahon has
been a resident of Moyie City
for nearly two years, and was a
member of the firm of McMahon
Bros at that place. He was a
quiet good natured man, and had
a host of friends all over the
district who will regret to learn
of his melancholy death.
Judge Walkem'a Decision.
Judge Walkem has decided
that a mineral claim crown
granted since the statute of 1893
does not carry with it the absolute right to the surface of the
claim. Also that a crown grant
to a claim does not convey the
water-rights on the said claim,
as the principal of riparian ownership has been abrogated by
tlio Water-Privileges Act of
1892.

COLOMBIA CUTS ITALY.
Ac
From  the List of Diplomatic
quaintances.
Washington, Oct. 14.—On inquiry at the Colombian legation
with reference to the suspension
of relations between Colombia
and Italy the charge d'affaires
made the following statement:
'■It is true that the Colombian
government has passed a decree
suspending relations with Italy.
I have not seen tlie text of the
decree but I am advised officially
that it guarantees to Italians Ihe
protection of tlie laws, besides
that the Ilritish legation is
charged with protecting Italian
interests in Colombia.
"This act of the Colombian
government i.s without doubt the
result of popular indignation at
the hostile measures adopted by
the Italian governmenl last summer with its lleet in Colombian
waters on the pretext of some
failure on the part of Colombia
in fulfilling the award of President Cleveland In llie Cerrnti
case.
"The Colombian government

United States governmenl $880,■

It is reported tliat a mail robbery occurred lately somewhere

taken.   	
WAR   MUST   COME.
So Says The Editor of the  British
Realm, Talking on the
Chinese Question.
N. P. Hamilton-Brown, editor
and proprietor of the British
Realm, says in an interview regarding recent developments in
China:
"You people in the west have
no idea of how close we have
been to war within the past two
months. Shortly before leaving
Hongkong I was a guest on one of
our cruisers, and was not surprised to learn that twice, if not
thrice, at Cheefoo, our ships had
been cleared for action. Telegraph wires had been cut and
the British ships stood facing
the Chinese and Russians only
awaiting the word to begin hostilities. The guns were loaded
and the men slept beside them
ready for action. Tlie word did
not come.
•'But come it must and the
sooner the better. If we have
a war at ouce we shall win hands
down; if we wait until Russia is
ready, we shall still win, but at
a terrible cost of blood and treasure. Now we are masters of
the situation. Our ships are the
best and they are manned by
British tars. A few years hence
our position may not be so strong
When Russia has completed the
great trans-Siberian railway she
will be able to pour thousands
of troops into Manchuria, and
that railway is expected to be
completed in 1903.
"One important factor in the
situation is the attitude of Japan.
She is intensely anti-Russian
and pro-British. A war would
at once see an active Anglo-
Japanese alliance, and within a
week' Japan could throw into
China 150.000 to 200,000 troops,
fully equipped and with an excellent commissariat.
Of course when this was comes
off, as come it will, the Canadian
Pacific railway steamships will
bo at once used as auxiliary
cruisers. Their guns nre at
Victoria, 11. (E, and at Hongkong, and I am lold that the
vessels can be put on a war fooling in a few days.
"The betrayal of Hrilisli interests during llm past two
mouths by the Tsutig-Li-Yamen,
particularly in llie matter of
railwuy concessions, is undoubtedly due lo lhe inllnuiiee of Li
Hung 'Chang; ami I voice lho
seiitiinenl of all Englishmen interested in China when 1 say
Unit lhe sooner we teach in a
lesson the belter for the whole
empire"

FEARS A FIGHT.
Van Home Says Jim Hill Will Invade British Columbia.
The Great Northern i.s making
ready for a great struggle with
the Canadian Pacific, Tho traffic
of British Columbia is lo bo the
irize of battle. Back of the
Canadian Pacific will be its
powerful agents in the dominion
government; back of the Great
Northern will be all the big
American railways, which all
hope to share in the gain once
the grip of the Canadian octopus
is broken.
That the war i.s coming i.s
stated on the highest authority—
that of the .Canadian Pacific's
president. Sir William Van
Home, president of the Canadian
Pacific railroad, was a guest at
luncheon at the Manitoba club
in Winnipeg, given on Monday
by A. M. Nanton, president of
the board of trade. Sir William's
health was proposed, and during
tho course of his reply he stated
that tho Corbin railway interests
had been turned over to the
Great Northern Railway Company, and that company would
probably be found at Ottawa at
the next session of parliament
seeking legislation that would
enable them to build a line in
southern British Columbia and
cut into the trade of that region.
As such a road would compete
with the Crow's Nest pass road,
in a rich mineral district. Sir
William declared it would be a
shame if Canadians did not .get
all the trade resulting from the
Canadian Pacilic road, as it had
been built by public subsidies. -
Spokesman Review.
It is reported that the Great
Northern has a number of surveyors south of Fort Steele,
looking over the country, in
search of the best route from
the south. Jim Hill has his eye
on the great coal fields of this
district, and it is evident ho
don't intend to lose the large
carrying trade of the Fort Steele
district.
Depot At the Fort Steele Junction.
On Tuesday the 18th inst, construction was commenced on the
depot at 22 siding, on what is
called by the Crow's Nest Railway Co. the Fort Steele Junction. A large double section
house and depot, also a large
freight warehouse will be erected at this point. Mr. T. B. Mc-
Namara has been appointed

D. D. MANN IN TOWN.
Mining is Booming in the Kootenay. The Whole Country Will be
Mining Camps.
D. D. Maun returned this
morning from a visit of considerable duration in British Columbia. Tho Tribune found Mr.
Mann endeavoring to open his
mail between lho interviews and
visits of those having business
witli him at tho olliee of the
Dauphin railway. Ho snid that
the whole west wns in a moro
prosperous condition than ho had
ever known it boforo. A largo
amount of development work is
boing dono in tho mines and
shipping will become active ns
soon as tho railways now building are completed. There are
now about 70 men steadily employed in development on th.'
mines in which Mr. Mann is interested, and the further they
get down the better the prospects look. There is, however,
greater activity in British Columbia mining than people ever
imagine, and Mr. Mann believes
that the whole country from the
summit of the Rockies to the
coast will be dotted over with
mining camps and mills, and reduction plants will be as plentiful as flour mills on the prairie.
The whole country will become
one great mining camp and ono
of the greatest fields for the production of gold, silver, copper
and lead in the world.- -Winni-

THE PROHIBITION VOTE.
No Official Statement ie at Hand.
Quebec Forward Says That Pro-
hibtion is Defeated.
With respect to the prohibition
plebiscite the general opinion is
that the vote was so unsatisfactory that the federal government
cannot bo expected to introduce
any legislative action in tlie
nature of a general prohibition
law.
LE SOLBIL'S ESTIMATES.
Quebec, Oct. 12.—According
to Le Soleil, Quebec's majority
against prohibition reaches 91,-
295, and majorities in other
provinces, which favor prohibition are us follows: Ontario,
11,911; Nova Scotia, 20,850; Now
Brunswick, I7.37H; Hrilish Columbia, 1,184; Prince Edward
Island, 11,1110; Northwest Territories, 2,024; Manitoba, 3,194.
Total in favor of prohibition,

prohibition, 20,09-1. Therearoyel

No Fear of War.
London.-The morning papers
all renew their comments on lho
Fashoda situation, buloii neither
side of the channel is any idea
given lh;:. ,...* affair is likely lu
lead to war. The worse thai
can happen is the resignation ni
M. Del ('asso, the French foreign
minister, or perhaps lho whole
ministry, but were it not for thn
delicate internal situation iu
France arising out of the Dreyfus affair and the strikes, the
Fashoda affair would involve no
danger whatever.
In a Friendly Manner.
London.—A prominent mom
ber of the French embassy in
London expressed these views
today:
"Tlie advent of the French
and British on the upper Nile
ought not to be regarded as the
mooting of imposing policies
which necessarily exclude ono
another, but as the clash of commercial interests which should
be carefully defined and embodied iu a permanent agreement,
"The war which has been provoked by ihe question of Egypt
will certainly not break out over
the settlement of llm uppor Nile
question. Tho issuos at Fisho*
da will be settled iu a friendly
manner to the general gatisfac-
ti  but an  agreement   will  he
much more easily reached when
lhe newspapers of lhe two coun
trios coaso exciting public opinion. "

1ATUKDAY. OCTOBER I!*:. 1S08.
Ottawa Letter,
b'l'om Our Own Con'OspoiideiH.
(Ottawa, Del. .").—Mutters in
Bonnectkm with the Yukon administration ure gradually assuming definite shape, and the
efforts of the department of the
interior lo arrive at the truth
and remedy such evils as may be
proved to have actually existed
are being rapidly brought into
practical form. In ihe face of
Hie persistent clamoring that
lias been going on against the
department aud its representatives in the far north; the cold
but important fact is always
forgotten thai not one atom of
actual evidence has yet boen
produced: Several officials, and
public men in uo "way connected
with the administration, (in some
cases by no means friendly thereto), have come out; not one is
able to submit proof in support
of a single definite charge, while
some very definitely deny the
greater purl of the allegations.
Tlie in'mistur himself has slat-
■nil succinctly thai no charge has
been laid before him but the
strictest investigation shall beat
once made when material comes
to hand. Major Walsh, whose
appointment as commissioner was
hailed with universal satisfac
tion, has s'.utod that every effort
on his behalf has failed to produce a single witness who would
testify to wrong doing. The
correspondent of the Toronto
World, who has just reached
Victoria, and who will certainly
not be suspected of favoring the
government, states that no
charges were formulated, and so
on. The despatches further declare that commissioner Ogilvio
is ready to begin a thorough investigation directly definite
charges are made to him,
TIIK 1-HUNBEttBU l'AKflS A HANI).
Perhaps the most Important
development of the past few days
is the appearance of a letter
published in the London, (Eng,),
Times, iu which its correspondent severely criticises the iinini-
<r.'.ipsil administration at Dawson,
mi distinctly charges corruption to the officials, though still
H'ithout giving the essential details. Following the lead of the
l.'anadian   liberal   papers,    the;
lines emphasises the necessity
of prompt official action to the j
end that the truth may be arriv-1
ed at, and points out that the!
lending of Mr. Ogilvio inlo the
country as commissioner, is evidence of the determination of
of tlie government to shield j
no one, but to get at j
Ihe facts, at all costs; adding,
there is a general conviction,
1 ully shared by tho people of
the Mother country, that the
Canadian Government have
neither any sympathy with such
(radices nor the slightest disposition to shield the guilty perilous. There is not in Canada
any more than here any organiz-
system of corruption," The
times, in common with all other
(unbiased  observers thoroughly
,ppreciales the difficulties of the
it nation.
vlONSTltOUS   CHARGE   DROPPED.
The Ontario election trials are'
;oing on apace and so far have
n'oven just as satisfactory   to
he government as was to be ex-
lectod,   The most notable event
>f the week lias been the dismis-
al of the petition against tho
ommissioner of public worlis,
m failure on the part of tho prosecution to prove a single charge,
but of the 1H7 originally alleged,
'ho only charge that was proven
as of so little importance that
ie prosecution did   not   even
know of it, until they stumbled
jross it during the proceedings.
Nol only was the case satis-
ictory to Mr. Harty and   his
•iends, if was of widespread iiu-
ortanco as it disposed of tho
Inonstrous allegation  that   tho
itire  provincial   cabinet   had
inspired to raise a boodle fund
' lUlO.OOO for the expressed pur-
ise of debauching the constitli-
lcy.   The counsel for the potion behalf of the censer-
/ive party, admitted tliat there
is not one word of truth in it, or
en  suspicion of justification
' this charge;  an   admission
Wliich drew from the court a
iioner,
With
stern and richly deserved casti-
gation.
Though knowing full well
that this atrocious charge was
without: the slightest foundation
Mr. Whitney, with his chief supporters and leading papers, has
been working il for all it was
worth for some months past; it
is not by any such means tliat
thoy can expect to obtain the
confidence and support of the
country.
DOING THE SQUARE THING.
It gives one more than ordinary satisfaction to note an editorial in tho Ottawa Citizen this
week upon the Doukhobortsis,
tho Russian colonists it is proposed to locate in tlie Norlh
West. When first the project
was made public, it was prophesied in these letters that the
papers which hud with such
evident pleasure persistently
maligned the Galicians, would
quickly turn their mud batteries
upon the now coiners, and the
prophecy has boon amply verified, for within "-1 hours the assault began. Further information however showed the more
than ordinary injustice of this
course, and the Citizen is striving manfully to atone for its
error.
The article in question admits
that their Is excellent reason to
believe these people are moral,
intelligent, thrifty and industrious, and their continued existence in Russia has boon made
well nigh unbearable on account
of religious persecution, and
that they aro akin in their religious convictions to the Society
of Friends, than whom there is
not a better sect in the Christian
Church. It further gives publicity to the statement, before
suppressed, that all who are
brought to Canada will have
sufficient means to establish
themselves without assistance
from the State, and that there
is every reason to believe they
will make good citizens.
It is to be hoped that Oitizon's
contemporaries will show like
commendable desire to be fair in
their treatment of this matter.
THE WISDOM OF SOLOMON.
The Mail <fc Umpire has dis
covered that the present era of
prosperity is foretold by Solomon when he declared "that the
Liberal soul shall be made fat".
The Mail A- Empire and ils
friends might learn a greater
economic Iruth in the previous
verse in that in whicli their quotation occurs, where it is stated
that "there is thai scatterothand
yet increuseth, and there is that
withholdeth more than il meet
but it teudetli to poverty. Solomon propounded many a truth
that might be studied advantageously even iu these latter days,
and this, that "expenditure" and
"extravagance''are not synonymous terms, is not tlio least of
them, The conservative organ
is to be commended for its study
of the seritpures,
A JOURNALISTIC HIP VAN WINKLE
La Menorva, tho resuscitated
conservative paper of Montreal,
appears to have been doing the
Hip Van Winkle act* during the
time of its non-appearance. A
few days ago il reproduced lhat
old charge, that Sir Wilfrid
Laurier destroyed any possibility of reciprocal preferential
trade with the Mother land,
"which was the undoing of imperial federation and put thu
Colonial Secretary in a humilal-
ing position", If La Minerva
would only look up the fyles of
some of its contemporaries il
will lind that, while il has been
asleep, this fallacy has heen entirely exploded, and Ihal tho imperialists, from the Colonial Secretary himself down, are very
fully alive to ihe immense practical value of tlie Canadian Premier's policy iu helping forward
and developing preferential
trade and imperialism generally,

having journeyed from Omdurman in record time, seventy-four
hours. The streets were lined
with troops and he had a great
reception from the populace.
Oflieers accompanying General
Kitchener say that Major March-
and, the French officer at Pashoda, behaved with great moderation and courtesy. General
Kitchener denies the story that
the French at Fashoda fired ou
the British, mistaking the latter
for Dervishes. Mr. Neufeldt,
who was a prisoner of Ihe
Khalifa for a long time, and who
was released when the British
captured Omdurman, has written
from Cairo a strange letter to
his brother in Berlin, indicating
that his mind has beon affected

he has beon rescued to die of

SATUUDAY, OCTOBER 22, ISIIS.
AWAKENING  OP THE  BRITISH
LION.
Beset on All Sides by Envious and
Powerful Foes.
London. Oct. 12.—The Marquis of Salisbury resumed his
duties at the foreign office in an
unusually dogged mood, a complete antithesis of his ordinary
gentle treatment of the officials.
He was extremely disgruntled at
the way official matters concerning China aud Fashoda have
been turning out, although publicists of all shades of opinion
have been bitterly complaining
at tho almost complete ignorance
in which the country has been
left respecting till foreign questions. This wits especially the
case with Pashoda, and it bred
want of confidence in the government even among thoir own
supporters, which has beeu
amply demonstrated by the daily
outcry of the conservative press
against the climb down on the
part of Great Britain, which
Ihey evidently foresee.
The reversal of the order of
things in China has also boen al
theme for lamentations at the
Marquis of Salisbury's inverte-
brateness. The dispatch of Cossacks and Held guns to guard the
Russian legation at Pelcin, iu addition to marines, as sent by
other embassies, is considered
very significant.
Tho British premier, however,
seems to realize that trouble is
brewing in the east, as large
quantities of war stores are
being sent to Hong Kong while
tlio lirst class cruiser Terrible
has boen ordered to join hor
sister ship lhe Powerful at tlio
"bina station as soon as some
t'op.iii's are completed, These
cruisers aro llio largest in the
world.
Uncmsy Days in Transvaal.
l)isi|iiioliiig news from tin
Transvaal has reached tho Brit
ish foreign office. President
Kruger has commanded British
subjtcts in the Transvaal to join
the Burgher forces against the
rebellious chief, Mofou, who is
preparing for battle on a large
scale.
All roads in northern Transvaal are held by armed Kaffirs
and the Boers are likely to have
a difficult task. President Kruger has the letter of law on his
side in ordering British subjects
in tho Transvaal to join the
Burgher forces, but the British
declare they will refuse to fight
for the Boers while they are
disenfranchised.
Americans at Manila.
The Times is publishing a series of letters from Manila describing the American achievements there. Its correspondent,
referring to American volunteers, warmly praises I heir
work-, but adds that thero is no
question that the men are
anxious to go home. He says:
"Their brief experience in actual
warfare established a nolablo
fact; it proved them courageous,
decent, high-minded soldiers,
worthy of every confidence and
cheerful in all circumstances. Hi
the laurels they have gained are
small in comparison with those
wliich rewarded tho heroism of
their comrades at Santiago, they
are none the less honorable, for
men could not have endured j
moro or worked harder than
Ihey, or shown more valor."
Pie on the Mountain.
Editor, the Phosprotok,
Silt:—To be successful in our
ventures here, is happiness,
whether il be in blowing soap
bubbles or making an empire, or
in lli* more momentous under-
Inking of catching a Ilea or wooing a woman, and failure iu any
of these yield a corresponding degree of disappointmonl and woe.
Among Ihe many little failures
and worries that we meet with
every duy is our tit lot' inability
to mnke "eatable pio". Whllothe
I
uigue seems to be about the
proper stuff, by experience we
found that ventilation was quite
essential, and accordingly sunk
a few shafts through the capping, but iu cross-cutting we
find that: the moisture has all
gone into tho footwall. "We
like pie" when the formation is
favorable. Whut we think is
needed is some practical system
of drainage. Will some one. of
the many readers of the Puos-
pectou, kindly suggest a way
to keep the water out of the foot
wall, "so called nnder-crust".
Yours truly
1)10 Kook.
Kimberley, Oct., 19, 1890.
We trust that some one will
undertake to furnish "De Kook''
with a receipt for making pie.
Our worthy friend is noted as a
"pie-eater", and while in solitude on the mountain, working
his mine for tlie expected home-
stake, his mind wanders to tho
days past gone, and his appetite
is continually calling for liis only
want, "Pie".—Ed.
Fort Steelo, Oct. Til,
"De Kook":—When Dame
Nature made footwalls they were
of certain degrees of hardnc
and so it is in malting pios. It
is evident that your gangue, as
you call it. is very rich and as*
says high in juice. We would
suggest that in making your
walls, that you use nothing but
Hour, a little water and the necessary amount of shortening,
kneading as thoroughly as possible, roll Uiin and place on
plate, then generously sprinkle
a "putty coat" of Hour on the
foot-wall, if this i.s not siiflieionl,
mix a lillie Hour with thogitnguo
and 1 think you will llnd that
your trouble iu milking "pic on
the mountain" will bo ovor,
