The returns show somo Into-
esting features, and in many respects havo boen a surprise to
the loaders of both parties.
Tho New England states have
given heavy pluralities for McKinley. Tho republicans was successful In Massachusetts beyond
what was claimod by tho most
onthusliislio,
New York and Ponnsylvnia
vio with each other for the largest pluralities, and the figures
do not indicate whioh hits surpassed tho othor, oach state has
given tho republican candidate a
plurality of bolwoon 275.000 and
280,000, Illinois is a good third
In the plurality for the winning
candidate, it will not bo far from
175,000.
In tho gubernatorial contest
Atgeld has boon buried out of
sight.
Iowa rolls up a plurality of
75.000. Ohio swells it by 10.000,
West Virginia is also republican
by a handsome plurality.
Tonnesseo is claimed by both
parties, also North Carolina.
Nebraska is claimed by both
parties, with tho chances in favor of tho republicans, Kansas is
doubtful, but considered sure for
McKinley. Wisconsin is ropubli
can by an onormoiis plurality.
Minnesota which was considered doubtful by both parties, has
surprised everybody Iiy tliu size
of the republican plurality which
will approximate botwoon 40,000
St 15.000 moro votes for McKlnley,, than for Bryan, The two
Dakota's show that they aro in
tho republican column.
Oregon has declared for McKlnley. California is in line with
a republican plurality. In Dela-
Germans Pleased with tho Result
Berlin, Nov. 5:- The German
newspapers this morning had no
news regarding the result of the
election, with the single exception of tho Lokal Anzieger, in
which there was five lines announcing McKinloys victory.
Tho Tagoblatt' this afternoon
says: " A nightmare has fallen
from llie breast of the whole civilized world. Never before has an
election inspired similar interests
Bitter judgment has boen executed upon the democratic party
because it was unfaithful lo its
principles. Bryans victory would
have boen oelobrated by the enemies of popular liberty throughout tho world, and McKinloys
victory decides in favor of those
who bpliove in the ability of nations to govern themselves, McKinley moans tho return of prosperity. The shadow of his narrow minded policy threatens to
darken victory, but wo. hope ho
will not repeat the error while
president,"
The Hamburg correspondent
remarks: " Europe, and Germany in particular, hail tho election
of McKinley, since it is sure to
be the foundation of regular commercial intercourse, and stability
of currency will then be maintained, "
Tho Colongo Gazette remarks:
" McKinley's onergiOs havo been
purified by the hard fight of the
last few months, tho representative of honost currency and the
existing order of things. The
circumstances which brought 'him
into this position may keep him
from a relapse to his former sins"
The Froissiuigo Zoitung, says:
" The common sense of tho Americans has triumphed ovor unprecedented agitation, tho success of which would havo entailed unheard of inisory to their
country, "

Ihe mines of East Kootenay
are beginning to receive tho attention of mining n,on, who woro

lhat district al thu fruit fair.
Samples from over 100 mines
wore 011 exhibition, showing Iho
remarkable versatility of that
mineral section. It is practically
11 virgin field with grout possibilities. Thoro has been a great
amount of development work
lone in- the district, enough to
satisfy claim owners that, wilh
facilities for markoting ore, tliat
.section will become a big producer
This is emphasized by the fact that
tho North Star mine shipped
7000 tons of ore daring the past
season, which it is estimated was
worth $80 a Ion, or a total of
more than 8100,000; this, too,
when shipping facilities aro not
of the best,
Othor rninos are being developed extensively, notably tho
Sullivan group and tlie St. Eugene, both owned hy Spokane
people. In addition to this there
are somo extensive quartz ledges
being uncovered, Besides this
tho old placer ground on Wild
Horse is being worked.
The conl measures in the distriot are well known and are only
waiting tho construction of tho
Crow's Nest pass railway to become available.
Taking if altogether, the East
Kooleiiny gives groat promise
and will soon be prominent
among llie varied mining sections
of British Columbia.

Golden, not forgetting the sltip-

article with his most savory morsel of news, which dates baclj
some six years. "The article says
the report reached us a few days

Fort Steele, report says that
three Chinamen came from the
mines further south, and their
gold weighed the nice little sum of
$7,000 which thoy were relieved
of,about 12 miles frotnFortSteele.
We wonder who this correspondent, this vendor of news that
has been forgotten, and a thing
of the past, Is, and where did he
oome from, has he been mixing
up with the Heathen Chinese,
listening to their fairy tales, told
while under the influence of the
celestial hop, or was he hittbg
the pipe and while under its
soothing influence listened to the
cackle of some old timer singing
a tale of woe for the benefit of a
tenderfoot, and upon awakening
from the effects of his pipe thou,
ght the occurance was of recent
date and that he had made a
grand scoop of late news.
We would like to inform this
would bo scoopist of sensational
stories, that no robbing of any
kind has occurred in this vicinity
during the last four years. Law
and order prevails all ovor this

Of einirse there Is always in view

by his iiiahadmiuisti'iitioii and

practically threatening a wholesale massacre of Christians, iiiuil
announcing that Turkey will racist to the utmost any attack
from the outside.
Happily there is one feature of
the crisis which has something
of an inlluence upon Abdul Humid. This is the financial situation. It is about as bad as
possibly can be. All negotiations
upon the part of the Turkish
government for a temporary
loan have failed, and the condition of the treasury is one of utter
helplessness, On top of this tho
price of broad has risen forty por
cent and bids fair to rise still
higher as the priee of wheat goes
up. This has decidedly aggravated the prevailing distress and
consequent discontent.
Tho police continue making
arrests, It is understood that
many moro bombs havo beett
found. In Armenia the greatest
apprehension exists. Rumors of
a recent massacre in Egin aro

SPOKANE CHRONICLE,
W. M. Sprague, who has large
interests in the Fort Steele district, is in the city for a few-
days, Mr, Sprague visited tlio
place where Spokane now stands
way back in '08 and has not been
here since until this week, He
says in 1868 there was not a
house within 200 miles of here,
and it is hardly worth while to
say that he was greotly surprised
at seeing 35,000 people hero
where there was nothing less
than thirty years ago.
Mr. Sprague has a part inter.
est in the Dibble group, which is
one of tho principal properties
in the Fort Steele distriot, A
tunnel has boen run in about 400
feet on the Dibble and so steep
are the mountains there that
nearly 500 feet of depth was ob.
tained. Tho tunnel cross-cuts
four free-milling gold lodges and
ono gray coppor lodge. . Ono of
tho gold ledgos Is nearly fifteen
feet wide and somo assays from
it ran as high as $100, while
most of it will average nearly
$30,00.
A small force will be worked
on tho Dibble all winter and as
soon as spring opens a largo
forco wlll bo put upon a wagon
road which Is to connect the
mine with tho Kootenay river,
As soon us this road is completed
the mine will commence shipping large quantities of ore,
Tho principal shipper of this
year was tho North Star, which
shipped nearly 7,000 tons.
Heretofore it has been impossible for tho boats on the river
to run more than throe or fout-
months In the year, but boats
will be built this winter which
will draw so little water that
they will bo able to run about
nine months out of tho year or
almost tho ontlro time the river
is froo from ico. This will bo a
groat help to tho entire .dis-•
trlct.
Lust winter there was but four
claims worked near Fori Stoolo
whllo this winter more than a
dozen will bo worked.

mm VAN  HORN'S  RAILWAY
TALK,
The Crow's Nest Pass Line the
Most Important Under Contemplation,
President, Van Homo of tho
Canadian Pacific railway is in
Vancouver. Ho has unsworod
the following questions respecting railway building for the
Nows-Advertiser: "What do
you regard as of tho first importance in railway building ?"
" The Crow's Nest Pass line
without question. That is the
quickest and cheapest way to
provide the necessary facilities
for the development of the Kootenay country, and at the same
time secure Canadian interests
in tho trade already developed
and to be developed, and if that
is long delayed, the trade will
become permanently established
southwards and will be lost to
British Columbia and to the
whole Dominion,"
"What other step do you
think would follow that ?"
"Aside from local lines to
i-each the different mining camps,
tho next important move would
bo to complete the rail connection
between Nelson and Revelstoke,
so as to afford the earliest all-rail
route between the Kootenay district and the Pacific coast. I
think it probable that this link
will be completed nearly as soon
as tho Crowds Nest line, and with
this in view, we have just now
been surveying a line along
Slocan lake southward to connect
the Nakusp & Slocan with the
Columbia & Kootenay railway.
"And what about the direct
line from the Kootenay district
to the Fraser valley ?"
"That will follow the Completion of the Crow's Nest pass line
as certainly as one sunrise
follows another, for the construction of the Crow's Nest pass
line and the" Connection to Revelstoke -Will result in silch a development of traffic as will justify
the extension of the Crow's Nest
pass lino td the Frasen I have
ho doubt whatever about that."
The lirst class cruiser Diadem,
launched in tlio Clyde this week,
has been completed in 211 days,
which establishes it record of
which Brilisli ship builders have
every reason to be proud. Hut
thoro Is no use in building war
ships at this tremendous speed
if men are not forthcoming,
Heretofore, of course, merchant
seamen have been it reserve, unofficial but none the loss real,
upon which the navy was able to
draw in times of emergency, and
it jars tho norvos of Englishmen
to be told that this reserve is altogether inadequate,
Thoro Is no appoaranco of
weakness at England's dockyards and arsonals at this moment. Thousands of workmen
are working day and night to
complete the warships and fill
up the magazines aud store
houses, and thoro recently
arrived at Liverpool a full equipment for about a dozen armed
cruisers, including the Campania,
tho Lucania, the Teutonic and
the Majestic. But trained seamen cannot be had for tho asking, nor made to order like shot
and shell. At this moment tho
British navy is more than 20,000
men short of tho 105,000 active
and long Bervico ratings necessary for'tho fleet, As to the
navy reserve, Lord Chas. Ber-
esford says it is not only useless
and ineffective, as at present
constitued, but is 1,200 short now
of the numbers officially admitted
two years ago as necessary, although since then 01 warships
have boon built, aro building, or
are projected. Experts differ as
to the best means of remedying
this state of things. Lord Chas.
Beresforcl believes the question
is mainly one of money, Sir
Chas. Dllko thinks the time has
arrived for the government to
spend money on making the
naval service attractive to British mercantile seamen, and for
devising legislative moans to
prevent British seamen being re
placed in British ships by foreigners. There is little doubt
that the naVal budget next spring
will contain proposals for meeting the emergency.

THE   BIG    WHEAT  BOOM.
Winnipeg • — Wheat prices
throughout Manltdba lind the
Northwest continue to keep up
to the top ndtch, being in no way
affected by the Speculative element in American markets. Sixty
five cents is the prevailing price,
and when the big milling companies get after each other; the
price may ho anything between
70 cents and a dollar; Tho milling firms are after the Wheat and
the price cuts iio figtire. The
government has revised its wheat

amount to something loss than
fifteen iiitllion bushels. Tho
Itcreagij nod' tinder wheat was a
little short of out! million acres,
rhis does' not include the wheal
in tho Northwest Territories.
The leading linns of London
were interviewed by a representative of the Associated Press
respecting the rapid advance in
wheat. All the merchant's questioned think the advance due to
an American "corner." Tho
'price of bread in London and the
provinces has risen slightly.

tettUso of constant anxiety to the

In ah article in the Canadian

Harold Sands, of Cloverdalo,
says: " It is possible to tell of
gold, gold, gold in all parts of
the prbVlncB; British and Canadian capitat is beginning to take
an interest in tho mines; and it
is principally to the pBoplo at

wo cannot help ourselves. He
got there first, as his own saying
is, and there he remains. The
liowspapors across tho border
have had their special correspondents up in Kootenay for a long
time past, writing column after
column of description; and while
Canadians and Englishmen wore

States yroro digging and blasting. There is no need to dwoll
further on the subject, as tho
ddmplalnt of non-activity no

SULTAN   TREMBLING
Th'd Daily News Berlin Correspondent reports, according to a
Constantinople dispatch i'ticoiVod
thoro, tho Sultan Is very, lliiich
irritated til M NelidolT, llie
Russian itilillilSsiidot', for insisting upon I'oforin, and said td the
ambassador thai acceding lo the
powers' demands would endanger
his throne'.
AND THE C.P.R, POLICY,
Sir William Van Homo's journey
to the Pacific coast has boon punctuated with Interviews. From Winnipeg
wost tho press has been full of his opinions and comments on thein. One thing
stands out clearly In tho whole mass of
verbiage. The C.P.R,'s president now
recognizes the importance of Kootenay
and Is exceedingly anxious to inform
tho public; that it will bo the policy of
his company to gridiron tho district
with railways. His plan embraces a
through lino from Lethbrldge, Alberta
to Hope on the Frasicr river, the long
expected Crow's Nest Puss lino. In addition to this he proposes to build connecting north and south lines from Fort
Steclo to Golden in East Kootenuy,
from Slocan crossing to Rovelstroko in
West Kootnay und from Pontieton to
Sicnmous in Yale. This network of
railways would of course bo .likely to
make un Independent system to the
const a dangerous experiment front a
financial point ot view and it is clearly
his intention to convoy this moral.
Whntovcr other portions of the province may think of this scliomo, wc etui
thank our stars that the American railroads will always furnish us with at
least a modicum of competition,
It seems to be the policy of the CP.R.
to let tho public know tho necessities of
Kootnoy and then promise that this
nnd thut will be dono in the near future
it also seems to be the policy of the CO'
mpnny to think that promises vuguo
and uncertain, nro enough to stop the
cries and petitions of tho people of Kootenay. For years tho GPtRi has known
of tho vast mineral resources of Eust
und West Kootenay, It is neurly 10
years slneo tho Crow's Nest Pass R.R.
wus projected by tho B.C.Southcrn R.R,
and since that time, this company that
keeps the best interests of the Kootc-
nics" under its walstctiat" has opposed
the building of tho mud by any com-
puny other than its own, and nt this late
day "is bobbing up most sorenly" and
through the pi''css,expliiining to the dear
good people ot Kootenay thut they need
a railroad, And recognizing the fuel
that ft Is possible that it will be constructed, they seek tho dppdrtiinity of
posing before the people us would be
chnmpidn Vail way prdiudtcrs of the
district. All the peoplo df tho Kootenay
want is, it railroad through the Crow's
Nest Piis8,priiinises to dtipind not do are
things of tho past, and will not bo tolerated nny longer. And in justieo to
ourselves we will tuke such tiuiiisuros
which in due time will show thut the
people of KOotenay ("can help them-
solves."
Tho Now York Evening Post
concludes a series of articles on
British Columbia mines with tho
following comment: "Kootenay
is now possessed by Americans,
and their success is merited;
While Canada dllly dallies about
providing a railroad from tlie
main lino of the Crow's Nosl Pass
into tho Kootenay, Americans

Vancouver.—In the case of
Augustine Augusto, whose dead
body was found floating near
Point Grey on Saturday, the coroner's a jury has returned a
verdict of accidental drowning.
Augusto went duck shooting
with somo companions. They
landed the deceased bul when
looked for. him again he was nowhere to be found. The fog
became very dense and rendered
the labors of the searching party
far moro difficult. Evidently
Augusto had been wading, had
been caught by the rising tide,
and found it impossible to make
the shore. When discovered the
body had no coat or boots upon
It, which gives color to this
theory.
