AMERICANS     SAFE    AT   COPPER     PROPERTY
ZANZIBAR, BULL   RIVER.
AT
Official  Notice to  Washington,
Washington August 27:—The
stale department has received
the following cablegram from
Consul Dorsey Mohun, at Zanzibar. Khalid Bin Bargosh refusing to surrender, the palace was
bombarded by the English fleet
at 9 o'clock this morning and
totally destroyed, many were
killed, Khalid Bin Bargosh took
refuge at the German Consulate,
Afterwards Hainoud was proclaimed sultan. All Americans
are safe."
The palace of tlie Sultan of
Zanzibar was bombarded this
morning, and soon was a mass of
blazing ruins, Rear Admiral
Henry Rawson C, B. in command
of the British cape of Good Hope
and west coast African station,
after notifying the government
of Great Britain that Said Khalid
who had seized the palace and
proclaimed himself Sultan, on
the death, by poison, of Sultan
Hamed Bin Thwain. Said had
been reinforced, and positively refused to surrender, his answer was
conveyed to Admiral Rawson.
At!) o'clock the flagship signalled
the Raccoon, Thrush and Sparrow
to commence tiring, a few moments later the cruiser and two
gun boats opened tire with their
heaviest guns, ten minutes later
they sent a storm of shell and
shot into the palace, tearing big
gaps in it, scattering death and
confusion among its defenders,
while dismounting some guns
ashore and putting to flight the
gunners handling the guns,
Tho fire of the warships was
adinirbly directed, smoke was
seen issuing from all parts of the
palace During this time tho St-
George and Philomel were held
in reserve, although they ocens-
ionly plumped a shell info the
enemy's camp, adding to the dismay of Its defenders, The loss
of the enemy are not known, but
must have been heavy, During
tho Bombardment the Sultans
armed steamer Glascow opened
tire on the warships, a few well
aimed shell from the heavy guns
of the Raccoon, and iv shot or
two from the Sparrow crushed
through and through ber, .silencing her lire in short order, she
sank at her moorings at once,
ZANZIBAR CHIEF WAS PLUCKY
But Ibe British Squadron \Va«
Too much foi' Him.
London, Aug-. 27i—A dispatch
received from Admiral Rawson,
dated Zanzibar, at Si-lii |>, m, today, says:
"Issued an ultimatum at 7
o'clock this morning, calling upon Ibe usurper lo haul down hie
Hag and surrender to me, and
directing bis followers to pile
their arms and leave the palace
before il o'clock, or otherwise if,
would be bombarded, Instead
of complying-, lie commenced increasing his fortifications, and
Ids corvette trained her guns on
Ibe squadron. I opened fire at '.I
o'clock on the palace and on the
corvette, which promptly responded. 1 ceased tiring at Ih4u,
Whon the corvette wns sunk and
all the guns were silenced, and
the usurper yielded to the Gorman consul. Hainoud bus been
appointed sultan-. The enemy's
loss was heavy. Only a potty
officer of tlie gunboat Thrush
was wounded."
FRUIT. IN  KOOTENAY,
David Griffith| returned from
Bull river on Tuesday. He reports that his property is looking
well, he brought in several samples of ore. The ledge is about
7 feet in width, and has well
defined walls, tlie ledge matter
is well mineralized and assays
give the following returns, gold.
$7,00, silver 10 ounces, 33 per
cent copper and a large percentage of lead. About 200 feet from
tho present workings, the ledge
is uncovered, and a shaft is down
four feet showing a 2 foot ledge
whioh is increasing as it goes
down. There will be a tunnel
run on this property at once, as
the owner intends to ship ore this
winter, "by sleighs to the banks
of the Kootenay," in readiness
for steamboat transportation next
spring. Tlie intention is to ship
at least 1000 tons, as a sample of
the copper ore from the Bull
river district. There is no doubt
that this property will make one
of the best mines in East Koot
enay, all that is needed is the
proper transportation facilities,
A smelter would have all it could
do, to treat the ores from this
ledgo, as it can be traced for
more than 0 miles,
"On Huckleberry Hill." the
North Star Company have about
2a men at work, a number are
engaged in running a drift to tap
the main ore body at a depth of
90 or 100 feet. Thoy are also
sinking a shaft north of the main
shaft which is in carbonates, we
understand that tho Company
are preparing for the taking out
of a large amount of ore during
this winter.
The owners of the ilig Chief,
Eureka and Little Chief and
Geneva, have decided to place a
number of men at Work developing the property, The Big Chief
is an extension of the Midnight
on the North, there, is a good
showing of mineral on ail of
these ciaiitls,
There are a large number of
men working on the Moyea group
of mines. The St, Eugene has
nearly 4000 tons of ore on the
dump, the Moyea has lately
struck a lerge body of galena,
Hie Lalie Shore also has some
galena in sight, in the near futui:
this w'ill make a large silver lead

The Indications are tlm't considerable rich ore will be Shipped

Improvement of public roads In this
state, the first of the kind to be officially j
prepared, in which he makes sugges-
Ulons which he believes will bring a
•hange for the better In the state highways.
On the question of "How much road
does Pennsylvania have?" Mr, Hamilton says:
"There are over SO.OOO miles of roads
in Pennsylvania outside of the wards
and borougs and cities of the commonwealth, and not Including the turnpike
roads under corporate control. For the
year ending May 31, 1895, these SO.OuO
Miles of road cost the farmers of Pennsylvania just $3,898,573.96, or at the
rate of $48.73 per mile. This expense
*&8 been continued for many years,
and yet a comparatively smalt amount
•f the roads throughout the state can
Ve truly designated good. Who are responsible for this enormous waste? The
farmers have complete control of the
wtire system from end to end. Each
township elects its own officials year by
year. All responsibility, therefore, for
this important trust rests upon the people whom these olficlals represent. Is
It unfair to say that there must be
something radically wrong with a system, that, after trial for over one hundred years, and involving an expenditure of money counted by tlie hundred
millions, has produced only that which
we have today?"
He then asks "What is a good road?"
and after telling of the crude attempts
at road making in the state says;
■A good road Is a dry road, and no
wet road ever was or ever can be good.

An Antor Ruction
When her mother married Mr. Van
Alen it created a great ruction In the
Astor family. There had been an ancient
feud between the Astors and the Van
Alens, and the families wero always at
daggers' points. William Astor, father
of Mrs. Van Alen tried in every way to
break off the match. He was a hot-
tempered man who treasured animosities
like a miser does his gold. He told his
daughter that he would disown her If
she marrlej Van Alen, but even this
thrt-at did not have the desired effect.
The marriage took place, and then Mr.
Astor settled $10,000 a year on his daughter, with the understanding that sh>-
would live abroad. At that time Mr, Van
Alen had not come into his present
wealth, and the $10,000 a year had its Influence.

The young duke of Manchester will
not ho 21 until March ,1, ISO?. Ills full
name is William Angus Drogo Montagu, nnd he has been In possession of
his title for four years, his father having
died In 1892. He was educated ut Eton.
If the family exchequer had boon more
robust ho would have been sent lo Oxford, where there tiro many line opportunities for a young man of his standing to pile up debts at a terrillc pace. He
has throe family seats, but nonu of tho
estates arc remunerative. They are
Klmbolton caslle and Brampton Park in
Huntingdonshire and Tandem gee castle,
County Armagh, Ireland.
The pedigree of the young duke Is distinguished. It practically begins wllh
Kir Henry Montagu, who In 1020 was
created Baron Montagu when he was
lord treasurer of England. In *lti2il this
gentleman was made enrl of Mononoster,
The fourth carl of Maucheslcr did '.
lucky thing when ho took sides with
William of Orange. When tho hitler
scored his historical success ho did not
forget tho earl, nnd In 1719 tho earl became duke of Manchester.
The young duko's mother Is an American. She was Miss Consueln Y'/Jiaga,
daughter of Antonio Yznuga del Valle, of
Ravenswood, La, In isfw she married
Qeorgfl Victor Hrogor Montagu, Viscount
Mandoville. Later Lord Mandevlllo bo-
oame <h« duke of Manchester upon tlie
death of his father.
As Lady Mundcvltle sho visited Mr.
and Mrs. Willie K. Vandcrhllt shortly
afier their marriage, and ihe result was
ii big row between the newly wedded
couple. Mr. Vuiiderhlll, It is said, was
too attentive to Lady Mandevlllo. Mrs.
Vandorblll doubtless ropenlod of her
Jealousy, for when her lirsl baby on mo
she was christened Consuolo, after Lady
Mandevlllo. That baby Is now the young
duchess of Marlborough.

Hard timcs.poor crops and low prices

the threshing business, which will bo a
great relief to the farmers' wives and

lo ho that "having the threshers" was
the event of the year at farm houses,
and, for several days before their advent and until their departure, the farmers' women folks assisted by neighbors
In turn did nothing but cook nnd bake.
There was nothing too good for the
threshers, who demanded pie three
times n day, fried chickens every day,
nnd everything else in proportion, and
many of them destroyed more good grub
during the threshing season than they
snw during the rest of the year. Now
ln most cases the threshing-machine
man lakes along a cook shop on wheels
und boards his own crew. The farmer
has to pay for the threshing only. The
crews do not got pie three times a day,
and fried chicken is nol on the bill of
fare; but Ihey have plenty of wholesome
food, and tho farmers' women folks
uro not worked to death lo wait on
them.

for bringing tho Transvaal under Hrit-
l.-'h tiomlnnlton. Something had to he
line, however, so h" was sentenced to
15 months' Imprisonment. Hut the punishment Is of a farce-comedy kind. Except for being deprived of his liberty his

returns tbe calls of his visitors. He can
smoke fine cigars, if he be so Inclined.
can think choice wines with ills dinner,
regale himself with books and magazines,
and have a fine rest generally.
.Men who hnve been confined In English
prisons under "first class" conditions say
that the life is quite delightful, lt means
ii complete rest from mental and physical fatigue, courteous treatment from the
warders, an absolute cessation of the ordinary worries of life, and no subsequent
disgrace when the term has expired.
Jameson is a rich man, and even if ho
were not, his friend Cecil Rhodes would
see to it thai every comfort and luxury
which money could buy would be at his
command for the next IB months.
When Jameson was sentenced on July
ii he was taken to Holloway jail. At that
time no orders were given to afford hlm
Vflrst class" treatment. After being sentenced all criminals are taken to Hollo-
way jail, from which thoy nre subsequently distributed among the many
prisons In and about London. The first
night in Holloway Jameson had to wear
the prison garb and eat the prison fare,
and later he had to endure a ride in the
prison van, which landed him In the court
yard of Wormwood Scrubbs prison. This
van Is a smart affair, drawn by two
horses, wilh tho letters "V. R." In gilt
on the sides of the vehicle and the royal
insignia above.
A Strict Governor,
The governor of the prison is Captain
Trice, who looks something like Chaun-
cey M. Depew, although his expression
Is much sterner and the lines around his
mouth nre deeper. Captain Price Is a rare
disciplinarian, and but for the "first
class" orders whicli came with Dr. Jameson It would have gone hard with that
daring freebooter.
Contrasted with the life Jameson will
lead in the prison that of the ordinary
convict is terribly hard. There are f>0
odd large prisons in England, and in each
one the same routine is followed. They
are ail under the control of tlie homo gea-
nlary, and one set of rules does for
all.
At 6 o'clock every week day morning
the chief warden gives the signnl to "unlock." The officers of the different wards
hurry from cell to cell with keys in tholr
hands to open each narrow dwelling, In
some of the more modern prisons Ihe
American plan of a crank which, when it
turns, locks or unlocks all the cells upon
a corridor at once, is used.
As soon as Die cells are unlocked eaeii
prisoner hurries In his underclothes for a
tub of waler from the faucet in his cell,
with which ho cleans out his little home.
This Is done under military rule.
1'rlor to the beginning of the day's
work the "cleaners," as the men who
cl.au cells nro called; the "cooks," or
thoso who do duty In the kitchen, or
the "bakers," who work In the bakery,
nre marching away In long prison files
lo their respective duties.
< I en it I hie**. Firm.
Then sonic of tlio convicts w-ish the
cells, others sweep the [lavements until
they glisten, while all nro watched ly
armed guards from Um It tlio midair
bridges shove tho stone corridor floor.
a big hell in the prison summons the
prisoners lo work at (hill) every morning.
Men hurry to the treadmills, the cranks,
or report In lllos, under charge of n
guard, to tho "trade inspector," who sets
Hum lo work. Carpets are woven on
looms In the cells, shoemakers bustle at
their work, oakum pickers hurry to duly,
and so on il goes all over tlie prison.
Every convict must work, whelhur ho
only 'Treads whul" or aimlessly turns
"cranks11 or Is busy at some vocation.
Por an hour the prisons hum with tho
sound of labor. Then at 7:110 o'clock
bronkfast Is served lo each prisoner while
at work. Work continues until 11 o'clock,
and then the prisoners arc inarched In

A Chicago Ulrl Khun Down Her Eloping Fnllti'i* mid IIIh Hrlile.
In Chicago the park policemen use bicycles in patrolling the boulevards and
frequently run down and capture violators of city ordinances. Hut a Miss Walworth of Bansonvllle, N. Y., is the first
on record to use the wheel tb overtake
and capture a pair of runaway lovers,
thus preventing what would otherwise
have been n most sensational elopmenl,
says the Chicago Dispatch.
Additional Interest, loo, is lent to Miss
Walworth's achievement by the fact that
the eloping parties was her father, Jos-
eph K. Wahvorlh, a widower, (til years of
age, and the 10-year-old daughter of a
neighboring farmer. The old man and bis
girlish sweetheart had obtained considerably the start of the plucky young daughter In a buggy behind a fleet horse, but

divorce and the custody of tho children.
The sheriff notified lite mother thai rhe

About 10 o'clock tho mother showed up.
Hor two daughters wore wllh hot*. Djii*

JllEN 1 told my wife about il.
sho exclaimed; "How utterly
absurd! Why, I think you
should havo understood him all along."
"Mrs. Dockboy," said 1 severely, "how
wne I to believe all his stories—his Hies
of prowess in mailers of love, in feals
of strength Perhaps ho did knock out
O'Sulltvan, the champion middleweight;
perhnps he was the greatest halfback
that over played on the Cad unlvorslty
eleven; perhaps he did leave the west on
account of tho Importunities of ihrco
beautiful millionairesses; hut even Lieutenant Swash doubted that story of his
capture by Apaches and his subsequent
release by the chief's daughter,"
"Swash!" retorted my wife. "Why do
you always quote that horrid old thing.
1 think that ho is himself inclined to exaggeration at times, whether unconsciously or otherwise, l oannot judge."
I do not take my wife's views of the
matter, at all, and I cannot soe why the
lieutenant and myself should have acted
otherwlso than we did.
We were talklog of Fllklns—Fllklns,
who occupied tho fourth door rear hall
bedroom lu my old boarding house. In
locating the man I have described him,
for that particular room In every boarding house Is inhabited, experience has
taught mo, by a peculiar genus—men of
culture, hut on their uppers, men whose
long lines of distinguished ancestors have
bequeathed to them some quarts of blue
blood, but nothing wllh which to keep
It In circulation, and an Inherent idea
lhat It ought lo keep moving of Itself,
without their descending to plob>lan labor
lo supply tho motive power. Just such a
person was Fllklns. His clean-cut toa-
turos, his easy manners, his polite bearing, supported by his pretension to family. When preparatory to going out after dinner ho donned the evening clothes
of the medical student who occupied ihe
second floor front, nnd you saw him, not
a hair of his head or mustache out of
plnce, not a wrinkle or a speck anywhere,
you Instinctively felt thnt ho was a gentleman born.
And if, perchance he was off to "that
swell little affair at Mrs. Van Foam's
that tho papers have been talking io
much of" and needed a quarter for car
fare, his father having forgotten to send
him his chock for the month, it was willingly given, for he was a capital follow.
Ho drew on us occasionally, but we regarded that as only n slight compensation
for his company.
Lieutenant Swash came into my roam
early ono evening as Fllklns and I wore
discussing things lu general ovor our
pipes and announced that ho had three
tickets for-a series of boxing bouts at the
Olympic Athletic Club.
"There will bo some bruising," he cried,
enthusiastically, "and it will be worth
seeing."
"Awfully Borry, old man, but 1 can't
go," replied Fllklns. "There Is a certain
man In New York who 1ms been searching
high nnd low for me for three weeks,
He'll be there, 1 know, for ho has been
going to tho bowwows, and spends all his
time about such places. I'm not ufrnid cf
hlm, but I deem ll more discreel for a
white to avoid him,"
"Your tailor?" ventured the lieutenant.
"Dear mo, no;" answered Fllklns with
groat good humor. He seemed to enjoy
the Joko, "Would that he was and I was
wearing a really respectable looking cause
for him to pursue me, but 1 am uot so
lucky."
"Now, see bore, Fllklns, you've got to
come," I snld.
"To tell the truth It would be awfully
embarrassing for me lo moot that fellow," ho replied. "You'd ho surprised if
I'd tell you who he Is. livery ono has
hoard of hlm-rlch, very swell."
Swash looked ut me und winked ono of
his knowing winks. Then turning lo Fllklns ho asked:
"Well, what docs ho want with you?"
"A woman at the bottom of the whole
thing," replied our companion, uurullcd.
"You'd be surprised If you know who ano
wns-groat helle-pllos of money lu her
own name. This certain man was engaged to hor, ["met hor at a dance. Throe
wooks ago she broke oft tlie engagement,
and since then ho has bom going (o tho
dow-wowh-h porfoct madman, tho follcrs
sny, and ho has sworn (o break my head
on sight."
"And why should he bother about you V
sneered Swash, sitting down on tho edge
of tho bed, a most contemptuous look en
tils  filee.
Fllklns smiled, nnd softly puffed up his
plpo.
"Why should he bother about you?" la-
poatcd tho lieutenant moro omphutically.
"Indeed, 1 don't know," was tho quiet
reply. "1 never spoko to hor moro than
tb o times." Ho sat silent for a moment,
Wu were nil silent. Tlion lie laughed*,
"And by Jovel do you know, sho sont mo
a noto tho other day that cost mo a quarter—forgot to pay tho messenger,"
"Never mind your certain man. Come
on!" cried the lieutenant, rising, buttoning his coat und drawing on his gloves,
Fllklns sighed, knocked the ashes out ot
his pipe and arose,
"Very well, If you Insist," he said, "But
I know there wlll be trouble, and 1 am
very rusty with my fists, Now, 1 would
not care If I was like I waa when—"
"Hurry! We're later" Interrupted SwaBti,
, And as wo were tiling down the stairs he
whispered:
"A million to one we don't see tho ccr
tain man."
"I would be a fool to take you up," 1 **o-
piled BOftly.
When wo reached the gymnnslum of the
Olympic Club tho first bout wus over.
Several hundred mon, generally In their
shirt sleeves, wore seated on low benches
about the ring, al! smoking so vigorously
that a thick haxe llllod the room, and
from where wo stood we could hardly distinguish tho faces of the Iwo muscular
fellows who were sealed In Iholr respective corners.
"Thoro nro threo Heats up front. I*el'n
gel thorn," snld Ihu lieutenant, imlh-iiiliig
Die place wllh bis cane.
Fllklns hung hack,
"I'd rather nol," ho sahl, "I'll nol b«
noticed here,"
"Kitt!" exclaimed Ihn other, seizing his
aim and literally dragging him through
the crowd, nulli nt length wo were com-
rorlab'y fixed In Iho front row, I could
soo everything then, and oven hoard the
low tones nf the referee oh Im arose and
announced: "Six rounds between Harry
Honolulu of Huston and Kid Williams of
New York." Then with a nonchalant
wave of thfl hand lownrd the right hand
cornor, "Doiiohuo;" Inward tho left,
Williams,"
Donohuo and Williams wore two respectable looking young men, with clear,
pink faces, and splendid clients and muscles. Swash said that Iho hitter was a
middleweight and foughl loo low, but of
that 1 knew nothing, lu fact, I thought
it was rather tamo, My idea nf prise
lights bad been drawn from comic nud religious papers, but in these two active,
athletic young men, who shook hands trid
then began lo Jump llthely about Hie ring,
boutlng the air at limes mid ul Um-m
striking each other with tholr gluvoit
hands, l did not see a realisation uf my
sanguine ImugiuitiKs. To bo sure, hi the
second round Williams landed villainously
on Donoluiu's nose, causing it lo bleed
profusely, and received In turn an upper
cut on tlio chin which brought from tho
crowd nboul us cries of "Good 11111"'
"Now, another!" "Yer got 'Im skuerl."
"Ah, pshaw! the Kid's too slow; Jest see
Ihe chancel he missed!" "He's lluhtlllK
too low."
Tho vill'nIr was getting more Interesting.
Williams gave his opponent n body blow
that sent him reeling against the ropes at
ono side, but the Boston Ind regained himself ln an Inslnnt and dealt tho New
Yorker such a violent one on tlio cheek
that the young man began to stagger stupidly nbout, holding his hands out to pro-
loct his face. Involuntarily I half rose
and cried, "A good un!"
A sudden pull al my coat brought me
buck to my seat and Fllklns whispered in
my oar:
"There ho Is! What did I toll you?"
"Who?" said I, milled at the Interruption,
"Tho mnn lhat I spoke of. Oome, let us
got out.   He is moving this way."
Swash hoard his, nnd seizing hlm, ho
pulled him hack into his seat, for he had
mado a motion lo go,
"Leave nt tills uolnt?" he cried. "Fllklns you're a fool."
I looked toward the person whom Fllklns had pointed out, and although i had
never before soon him, from a series or
pictures of noted society men which a
certain paper had published 1 knew hlm
to be Archibald Van Pcyster.
"Yes, Fllklns," I said, "you are a fool."
"Call me what you choose," ho retorted,
"but, mark my words, there will bo trouble If we stay. Time liaB been called and
I, at least, had better go."
"Nonsense!" laughed Swash. "We'll
stand by you, old man, for I propose lo
soo Ihls thing out. It'll be hot the next
round."
"Indeed, it will," snld Fllklns, grimly.
"Well, hero comes tho certain well
known man," 1 chuckled, for Van fey*
iter was moving- around our way, ami
dnce Fllklns had so boldly declared himself I determined to give him a few gentle
thrusts.   The opportunity was so good.
"I sec him," he replied quietly.
Swash began to laugh, and used a rather strong expression, but hardly was it
out of his mouth when I heard it stronger
one and looking up saw Archibald Van
Peyster right ln front of us, glurlng down
ot our companion. There was a pause,
Then he deliberately raised his cano and
brought it down towards Fllklns' head.
1 sprang from my place and put out my
arm to arrest tho blow, but Fllklns wis
too quick for me. He caught it on his left
wrist, and shot out his clenched right
hand, lauding neatly on his assailant's
chin with such force as to send him groping against tho ring platform.
In an Instant the place was in an uproar, a dozen men sprang between the two
new combatants; a hundred others gath-
red around ns, tilling the air with their
excited cries and inquiries ns to what had
happened.
Van Peyster's execrations were something terrible. Inflamed with drink, maddened with jealousy and thirsting for revenge for Ihe punishment ho had received, he struggled to free himself from '.he
grasp of thoso who held him. Fllklns
on the other hand cooly explained;
"The man Is drunk, gentlemen, Some
one hnd better And his name and address
and send him home," Then in a lower
tone he whispered to me: "Don't you
think we had better go now?"
"1 think we had," I said, and without
another word Swash and J followed him
oupt of tho place, and home to the hoarding house, whore ho bade us good night
and retired to his fourth floor rear hall
bedroom.
1 saw Fllklns the other day. He wis
driving toward the park in a handsome
victoria, two neatly liveried men on *he
box. At his side sat a pretty girl whom I
hod never before seen, but know from the
pictures to have boon tlio great belle, Mils
Emily Carushor, And when I told my
wife about It she snld that I ought to
have known It all along.
"But I judged him from his other stories," 1 expostulated,
"Perhaps thoy were true, too," said she.

Thoy wne at tho city park ono evening, apparently for the purpose of attending tho bnud concert, but aside from
the music thoy managed to amuse themselves, as well as others, In tholr own
way. Thoy occupied n sent by themselves, of very small proportions, and as
iho ihrong passed and repassed around
Ihem they seemed oblivions of Bobby
Burns' warning:
"A ehlol amtnig yo Ukltf notes,
An' faith he'll prent it,"
"I don't like Wagner." he said as the
hand finished playing a selection from the
great musician's "TnhnhauseiV1
"Ho you know," she answered sweetly,
"I have often thought that nothing would
so Inspire you as Chopin would?"
"Chopplu' wood?" ho replied In an injured tone. "Thank you for the compliment, When a hoy, chopping wood was
nlways my dreaded task, and I have despised it over since. But did you not make
a mistake In your verb, having mo.mt
lo say 'sawing wood?' "
"Why, who sold anything about chopping wood? I wns speaking of the grant
musician, whose music is so beautiful
beenuse lt Is so difficult. Here Is his
name on the program."
"Oh, Choppln you moan. That Is not
pronounced' Chop-In.'"
"I hnvo always called tt 'Chop-in,'"
sho said, In a tone thnt seemed lo say
that this should make It right.
"1 afraid." he retorted plctunntly, "that
Ihoso who orofoss to know anything
nbout music will still go on pronouncing
It 'Show-pnw.' I do wish, Angollno, that
you would brush up a llttlo on music,
If T nm to tako you to the Eisteddfod."
"Oh, Is thnt the way you pronounce
lhat word? I have been dying to know
how It is pronounced all summer."
"You surely have heard your friends
pronounce It, If you have never had occasion to use it yourself."
"No, my friends don't pronounce It;
they say 'Ihal business at Arlington
Park,' or, 'that Welsh whnl-you-call-lt,'
and then wnlt for me lo supply tho name
But what do you moan by asking me
to 'brush up' on music?"
"Well." he replied, poking ids enne ln
tho ground, "f want you to he able lo
talk intelligently nbout tho concert; to
criticise it In some way, without resorting to the vulgar phraso: "Tt was very
good,' or. 'It was nol what t expected.' "
Why, what would you hnvo mo say.
George?" she answered, hor curiosity apparently aroused by what he had said.
"Oh, sny 'Ihe orchestra was sublime
nnd harmony Itself, but the vocal rendition was positively horrid;' or, 'the
prima donna had a voice of remarkably
high pitch and of sweet tone, hut It was
lacking In volume.' You must bo able to
llnd fnult in some way; to let the peoplo
know that you have a correct tnste for
music."
"I'll write that down and learn It by
heart. Oeorge, you're an unabridged dictionary, revised down to dale.' she said,
looking at hlm nffectlonally.
"There Is ono of Sousa's marches." he
replied, not thanking her for the com?
pllmont.  "What is your favorite march?"
Siie thought a moment, snd then ns If
by a sudden Inspiration alio replied: "The
Honeymoon March;" nnd hor eyes looked Into his so earnestly that he could
not fall to road their meaning
"Rather sentimental," ho answered,
but Sousa Is acknowlodgod as 'tho
march king.' "
"Some people call him 'Sowsa,' He
wrote tho wedding march In 'Lohengrin,*
didn't he?"
"Not thnt anyone knows of. Wagner
'omposed the opera 'Lohengrin,' and 1
don't think he hired Sousa to compose
tho wedding march for him, which, by
tho way, is the only decent thing the
Dutchman ovor composed."
"Oh, George, how much you do know!
Mow can you over remember it all?"
"The next on the program Is a selection from Gilbert and Sullivan," he said,
trying to divert tho conversation from
himself.
"I do wish," she replied, looking ovor
the program, "that all musicians would
havo common sense enough to have plain
names. Now, seo that next number, 'selection from Gounod's Faust.' Who
would over think of pronouncing thnt
'Goo-no?'"
"It seems quite as consistent, to me,
lo pronounce It 'Goo-no' as to pronounce
depot 'do-po.' There, they are playing
as an encoro a selection from Hoyt's 'A
Black Sheep.' You remember selng the
piny?"
"Yes; but I wns so disappointed the
night we were there. You know they
had on their bills the picture of the cutest
little black sheep, and they never brought
It on ihe stage at all. Don't you think
they could have been nrrested for obtaining money under false pretenses?"
"Angeline,1 ho said, rathe" wearily,
"I'm glad wo aro alone, where no one can
hear us. Let's talk of something else;
something that we can get together on,"
"Very well," she replied Innocent of

"No, darling," ho answered, putting his

the British ratio being 7U.26 and the American 7(1.32. Both had declined the some
proportion In 32 years; consumers In both
countries had shared equally the henellu
of advance In science and Invention and
the cheapening of production and transportation. Then came tho vote for n
change, and from October, 1K12 to July
1, im, British prices have fallen 5,2 per
com, while American have fallen l'J.u por
cent. The prostration of business and
prices in this country, with which Groat
Britain deals most largely, is of itself
enough to explain the small decline In
British prices, but Ihe fall here has been
greatest within the Hi months ending July
1, In which British prices were slowly recovering. Tbe explanation which ibe
events themselves suggest to every mind
Is that American Industries havo been
prostrated by Increased foreign competition under a democratic tariff, but have
been most depressed during the last year
nnd n half, since It became clear that no
revision or tho revenue laws would he
reached until after a presidential election
while British prices have slightly advanced In the assurance thai foreign advantages in Ihls market would not be swept
awny, as the election iu the fall or im led
many to expect, by the emphatic verdict
of the people against the domocnitlo
policy.
Mt'ii Who Him* Money.
Cleveland Leader: There Is no denying
llio fact that men who havo money to
Invest will refuse to invest it unless the
conditions arc favorable, and when money
withheld from investment the country
and all the people arc bound to suffer.
It was that way In 1893, when It was
known that the democratic party, pledged
to the destruction of the protective tariff
law, was soon lo assume control of all
branches of the government. The people
Were fooled in 1892 into voting for the
democratic policy, and they have hud
plenty of leisure since then to reflect on
tho mistake they mode Now they nre
asked to vote for free coinage of silver as
a remedy for the evils brought upon them
by tho Inauguration of tariff reform, and
If they swallow the halt thnt is held out
to them they will havo the experiences
of 189,1, '94 and '95 ovor again,
It Met tin- Point.
Seattle News: The News has boon
handed a letter addressed by the president of the Connecticut Life Insurance
company lo its 250,000 policy holders, deprecating the effort now being made for
tlie restoration of free sliver coinage. It
assumes nnd endeavors to prove th it
the value of the silver dollar would drop
to 35 or -10 cents und lhat payment nf
policies would therefore be made to survivors In those depreciated coins. We

"H'm, you haven't seen us since Wednesday," returned tho girl In pink, "and
I doubt If you ovor do again.''
"Ub! I suppose lie nnd your father have
been discussing free silver. Why on earth
didn't you pretend to see a mouse or
something, create a confusion, and so
change the subject?"
"My father and Jack agree perfectly on
the question of pontics. Moreover, they
ride the sumo make of wheel and go to

"Then, what on earth is tho matter? Did
you ride when It was too hot and both
lose your tempers, or what?"
"I lost moro than my temper," sighed
the girl ln pink. "You seo, il was litis

of course, we whistled up tho tube for
hor lo come down—people who live so
high as that are lu bolter physical training, as regards stnlrs, than their friends.
We got no reply, however, and Jack snld

"Ah, well, If ho had been very anxious
to seo her, he'd have just gone up himself, without—"
"So I tlioughl, and thai was why 1 said
I'd stay and watch the wheels while lie
went up. I was sorry afterward, for I
walled and waited and Ihey didn't como."
"But what could keel)—"
"H'm. 1 guess you don't know Mllly,
she's tho kind of a girl who always has
a splinter in her linger or a spider on
her shoulder, or—a question about poll-
tlcs whenever a mnn happens along."
"Then, why did you send Jack when
you knew-"
"Because ho didn'l want to go, goosle.
Well, I walled 1ft minutes, then | got mad:
when it was 'JO, I decided thai I Just
wouldn't wait. I was so angry thai I
was all of a tremor and I just jerked my
wheel out from behind Jack's, mounted
it, and rodo away. Why, 1 was actually

it re-enamelled the very next day; you
know Jack and 1 gol thorn the same color.
1 wanted to know just how long Jnck
staid, so 1 made a detour and came
around by Milly's again."
"But, say, weren't you uneasy lost
somebody would tako his wheel?"
"No; 1 Just didn't care if the old thing
was taken. As 1 turned tlio cornor ot

calling me lo head the man off."
"But, why?  1 don't soe~"
"Neither did I. I stopped to fllnd out

he stole your wheel while I was hunting a mouse for Miss Mllly, nml I couldn't

There are ilshos that build nests just as
birds do. Not long ugo somo of them
wore brought io this counlry from Japan,
and you can buy a pair of them for a
small price at any fajinler's now. If he
does not have them In stock he will get
ihem. says tho San Francisco Examiner,
Tlte purohuse is sure to be profitable,
because the habits of these creatures
are so remarkably Interesting, and. unlike gold llsh, they wiii breed in ,wi
aipiarum or even in a glass globe. They
produce three or fom broods of young
annually, so that the owner is likely to
be able to make money by disposing of
tho Increase, In tho land of the Mikado.
i" which ihey are native, they arc called paradise llsh,
The nests they make are very odd, Indeed, being composed entirely of air
bubbles. When the time for mating arrives the male llsh undergoes ti striking
change in Its appearance. Ordinarily he
Is of a dull, silvery color, but now he
exhibits stripes of red, blue nnd green,
wlib streaks of brightest ornngo on ibe
ventral fins, Such is the costume m
whicli ho goes a-woolng.
Utter on tlio female proceeds to con-
slruct the family nest at tho surface of
the water. Swallowing air, sho ejects It
In the shape of bubbles, which are held
and mado permanent by glutinous capsules rrom a secretion In her mouth.
Having got together In ihls way a suf-
flcient mass of bubbles she proceeds to
Icy.
At this singe the female paradise llsh
seems always to be slezed with a strange
desire in gobble her own eggs. This she
would Inevitably do but for the watchfulness of tlie male, who prevents her, taking tlio eggs In his mouth and ejecting
them beneath tho mass of bubbles, to
which they nrlso and find a resting place
among them. Sometimes he wlll conduct bis mate under the nest so that the
eggs us they are laid may ascend to it.
When laying Is finished he keeps guard
over the nest, attacking the female If she
comes near. Meanwhile he busies himself
In the making of fresh bubbles to take
the place of those which chance to burst.
This performance is kept up for five
days, at tho end of which the young aru
batched out. They can not swim, but
cling like llttlo tadpoles to the bubbl-M.
If one falls to tho bottom, as happens
now and then, the papa tlsh taken it In
itis mouth and disgorges It among the
bubblcii again. Ills watchfulness Is continued until the llltle fished ore able to
mke care of themselves.
They grow fast in a glass globe, or
aquarium, attaining a length of three or
four Inches. Thoy thrive best on chopped
angleworms, bul raw hoof cut fine will
serve ns a substitute. Apparently thoy

CANADA'S OPPORTUNITY,

of mountain counlry (here are

It is a niatterof profound satisfaction that the wealthy nnd Influential mon of the older portions
of Canada have begun to turn
their eyes in this direction. It
means a great deal for British
Columbia, if not for the whole
World. There is much capital in
Montreal, Quebec, Toronto. Ottawa. Kingston. London, und other
'cities of eastern Canada' It
seeks some profitable in-
Vestments There never was a
lime when capital loolted more
longingly to new fields. Here
now is the place for il. The
business of mining is nil right
when carried on in a cautious-,
legitimate manner as any other
business Is carried on. We cor
(Unity invite the capital of tlie
older Canadian cities into this
broad field. Wo invite men of
means to come here and see for
themselves. It will pnv them lo
come. They will see opportunities Ihal they will not lind in
tiny other country under ihe
sun.
There will be disappointments
of course: these are inseparable
from any pursuit inbusiness, bul
tbe general result will be ibe
tremendous enrichment of individuals and the betterment of the
entire country. Canada will
grow rich out of British Coliini

Owing lo (lie Interest of Eastern
Influences   Becomes  a
Dominion Issue.
When the company promoters
have succeeded in fairly interesting the people of eastern Canada
in the development of the mineral resources of East and  West
Kootenay, their service to the
districts    ClUlllOl    be   measured
merely in ihe amount of eastern
capital interested in tho mines.
Tbe greatest want of southern
Kootenay, East ami West, is tin
Crow's Nest Pass railway, 11
the peoplo in tlie oast beciiini
interested in Ibe mines thoy
also become Interested in
trade of this section of
country. The greater the d<
opuient attained, the greater
possibilities for them doing 1
ness in tho country. Self interest
the most potent of all factors,
will therefore incline thorn to
lend assistance to tho efforts of
people of the Kootenay to secure
the construction of the Crow's
Nest Pass road at the earliesi
possible date. Heretofore this
issue has been purely provincial
so far as the interest taken in it
was concerned. At present, with
the brief acquaintance that eastern people have had with the
mineral resources of this section
of the province, il bids fair
rapidly to become a question of
importance io the entire Dominion, By ordinary care eastern
people can secure profitable mining investments at reasonable
terms, . The resources of the
district will bear the closest
scrutiny. All that the easterners
have to do is to give mining
fakirs a wide berth, and the press
of Kootenay will do all in its
power to assist them in this respect. If people who don't know
a mine from a milk wagon invest
before making reasonable investigations they deserve to be
bitten. Mining in Kootenay is a
business, not a gamble, and it
requires ordinary business care.
Throughout the east all the
leading papers, irrespective of
political stripe, are advocating
the construction of the Crow's
Nest road, Commenting upon
this state of things the Winnipeg
Free Press says:
"We aro not so Impatient as
not to be willing to afford ample
time for this interest to crystalize
into action on tho part of the
government. Wo believe, it will
do so-. But there can be no doubt
that between the promise of the
government to open up direct
communication with the Kootenay
country, which it did not five to
fullill. and the prospect of action
by the present government toward the same end, there is a
fatal interval in which it is
pointed out that the trade of the
country is being directed into
American channels; and when
wo are at last, ready we may lind
ourselves arrived the day after
the fair, tlie. trade having been
absorbed by our enterprising
southern neighbors'. Western
advices indicate that active steps
an; being taken to connect this
eountry by rail forthwith with
the Northern Pacific and Great
Northern railway systems.
"The  rapid   development  of
mining interests in Kootenay has
brought about an equally sudden
necessity   for   easy communication.    If the government of
Canada and the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company, who has been
negotiating about the coustruc-
jtion  of  the Crow's Nest  Pass
| railway, do not soon proceed lo
jau understanding, they will lind
! American railways in tin.' country
i ahead  of  them.     Once   there,
; these railways will take the bulk
I of the trade south of the line.
This will follow for the reason
that while English capital was
hesitating,    American     money
! eanie freely ill and now controls
j most   of  ill,,  mining interests.
I Thu  tendency therefore, other
things being equal, will be to do
the   trade   with  tlie   American
| side.   This will be the more Inevitable   if through our delay,
I American roads make connection,
! leaving   Ibe   present   route via
Rovelstoke    on   tho   Canadian
| Pacific ibe only Canadian out-
I lei.
"The investments of largo
stuns of money in Kootenay mines
places the future of the country
beyond doubt, as a large producer of tbe precious metal.
This point once passed, the increase in population nnd trade is
sure lo be more rapid than under
any other industrial conditions.
Tbe history of South Africa and
Australian mines arc evidence of
thai. The connection to be made
to enable Canada lo enjoy Ihe
trade thus built up, should not
be compelled to await the slow
processes of Canadian railway
charters,   It should be made as

CANDIDATE ON
HELL ROARING  CREEK.
Capt G. R. Cray loft on Thursday for Port Steele, British
Columbia. He will be absent
about six weeks. The Captain
and his associates are developing
a mine on Hell Roaring creek, a
tributary of the St. Mary's. Two
shifts of miners are driving a
tunnel into tlie Delgardno claim
and work will be continued. The
Delgardno is a silver-lead proposition. It prospects a big body
of rich ore and looks like a
bonanza for its owners. The
Captain also has other mining
interests in that region that will
receive his attention before his
return, As is well known, the
gentleman is a candidate for the
legislature on the republican
ticket, but, strange to say, lie
will know nothing about tho progress of the campaign until his
return, The Delgardno mine is
in tho wilds of the Selkirks, many

this fall, both in politics and
mining-, will be such that it may

THU GOVERNMENT PETITIONED
Movement Started in Behalf of
the Crow's Nest Pass Road,
J, W. McArthur has drawn a
petition to tho dominion government on behalf of the necessary
aid for the construction of the
Crow's Nest Pass railroad and
this is being circulated in Ross
land for signatures. It is not
necessary to say it is being universally signed. It is proposed
to secure every signature possible
here anil in Trail, then send
copies to Nelson, Kaslo and every
other town in West or East Kootenay. Copies will also be sent
to Boundary whore, the people
are almost as much concerned as
we are hero. In fact Mr.
McArthur has started a movement which will grow and absorb
tho attention of all British
Columbia. Kvory energy of our
people should now bo bent to
secure this groat east and wost
line. Its construction would be
of inlinate importance in the developement of tho most marvellous mining country on the globe.
It is understood a .public meeting
will soon be called -for the stiil
more effective agitation of this
subject.
Rossland Miner.
Now is tho appointed time,
Port Steele and Hast Kootenay
should follow in the wake of her
sister district. Petitions should
be circulated all over the district
and every signature possible
should be obtained, the agitation
should be .kept up until the road
is assured. We would suggest

possible moans lo carry if into
