This means  the shutting down of tlu' ciinuenlnitoi'  and Liu-owing out of employment for  a lime nf u largo number of men. At  tho cniicunli'iilRT there are now 10 jigs  running' merrily nnel three Frne  vaiineis. There tire, about 125 men on  the pay roll. It is iiiifortur.iilc that  at llie beginning of winter the pay  roll should have to be temporarily  suspended, but it is some satisfaction  to know lhat in tin* plan of operations  outlined by "tr. Alonell for lhe future  working 'of tlio Lanark;.il will be  possible lo employ to " advantage  twice the nunilier of men that now  figure nn the pay 'heel. Tho average  yield of the mine continues lo improve  and the Lanark may now be regarded  as ,one of the lrpi'esriitiitive silver-  lend mines of the world.

Sam Fowler, the Poor Prospector,  "without book larnin'," and Pechecko  Victoria, the aged Siwash Chief���������  Gave Him ?n,2oo so that He Might  Know if He could Trust Them,  On the morning of Tuesday. July 27.  iis ono of our city bankers was opening his letters, there walked in an individual who might have bt-.-'n taken  for either n farmer or ti prospector,  lie was a prospector. Lie was dressed  in "store" clothes, wore a broad-  brimmed black' hal, was bi-o.-id-  ahouldered and massive in body,  iiwkwiu-d in speech and tii-tinii, .-ind  strikingly lcscmbliug in physiognomy  lhe late Louis Kiel, lender of the great  Northwest rebellion. He enquired if  the banket' ever had a 'brother named  hank.  The banker confessed he had not.  "I'm awful sorry Lo hear it,"' said Lhe  prospector: "We've struck it rich tip  thar in the niounlains, and 1 cum  back let* Ink for Hank. You ninL  Hank, but you Ink awful li."e"ini."  The banker resignedly piepnrcd  himself to refuse'a demand for a loan  of $10, but- the ��������� prospector, whose  name wtis Sam Fowler, went on to  explain that be had been in Medicine  lliit, had found thai liank died there  three yours ngn", that he (Sam) and  liis other partner, a iiiiv.ish Indian  named Pechecko. .hud "no" bonk  larnin'"'and were willing to lake the  banker in Hank's place if he would  help them It. buy machinery to work  Llieir mine and sell their gold, 130 lbs.  nf which Ihey had taken out. in less  than a year, and which wns now in  charge of the Indian 'ai. Itevel.Vutko.  They had conic down .from" near the:  hc.itl of, Peace river. 500 or COO miles  nnrlh of Aslie-roH, had there exchanged 10 pounds of llieii gold in exchange  feir $1,200, two suits of chillies, some  bliiiiUots for Pechec-k'.i's.. two squaws,  and two tickets to Iilcdiciue Hat, and  the Indian got olf at Ilevolstoke bo-  cniisc he was sick from eating bananas  and oranges em the. train.  Tempting iis was lhe sloi-y the  banket-was compelled tn explain that  he was ne>t his own boss, but Unit ho  wnnkblake Sain to a man-who would  fiil the bill. They went in search of  lhe mini but fnuiid he v.'iis nntof town.  They then went to another citizen  who was known  to  be somewhat   in  terested in mining. To him Sam  told his story, adding more particulars,  and producing some remarkably rich  pieces of gold quiii-lz and a small slug  of pure golel, which Jeweller Dull  tested and valued nt !">C0. It was then  arranged that the citizen and Sam  should go to Revelstoke and see if  things were as represented. Fn  route Sain added interesting particulars of tho rich strike he iind tho Indian had made. Klondike stories  weren't in it. The lejge. was 20 feet  wide anel from the fact that they  bad it again on the. opposite side of  the mountain, where it was narrower,  hut widened out with working, they  judged that the lend whs about a mile  und a half long. They bad also gone  iicriMS a gulch and found it fuillici* on.  Al the bottom of the gulch flowed a  swift creek, and in the bed eif this the  seiuaws had found good sized nuggets.  The quartss was  PHHNOMEXAL.IA* U1CII  in free gold, and could he mined iu  places without powder, a pick and  crowbar being sufficient. For the last  three months Sam and a mule had  worked tin old Mexican arras tn, to  grind the free-milling quartz; the gold  was extracted with quick silver. An  old kettle lined with "white dirt"  which answered the description eif  lire clay had been used to melt the  gold dust and nuggets which in their  molten condition wore run into a rude  mold ar.d converted into bars, two of.  which they brought down with the  idea cf getting Hank to sell nt the  mint and use the proceeds for buying  pack, horses, supplies, and machinety  for the mine. The climate up there  was not severe, Ihey had plenty of  fresh caiiboo meat and occasionally  ducks anti gee.te, Lhe meat'being easily  preserved in the snow which supplied  ualural cold storage high up in the  mountains. The aged Pechecko  whose long life*, bad been passed in the  mountains, had originally gone in  from the Pacific coast, up the Skecna  river and across the summit, guided  by  the   ui.igic._il   foi keel   stick   which  even white men claim to be an  inftill-  able locator of the precious liielal.  Tliu n A us.  Arriving at ltcvclblokc ton hours  late, Stnn and Ihtt cili/.en visited tin:  Indian ill. his cuinp among thu lives,  about half a mile froin the lower town  and just beynntl lhe cemetery, nu the  Hig Lend trail. S-ini naliirally went  ahead lo relate how he had found  Hank dead (at. which Pechecko was  visibly ii(fecl.ed) tuitl to see how lhe  Indian would take to .the idea nf a  stranger filling his place. The Indian's  lirst impressions were favorable, lie  liked the look nf tlie stranger ami wns  ivilling that he should see Lhe gold.  Sain then unwrapped the two bins and,  strong man though he was, curried  lliein over with nn "effort., laying them  clown nt the feet, ot the, stranger ami  going back to the Indian who stood  about 20 yards nway,"to bring over an  augur and a pair of scales. These,  Sam explained, had been bought, fur  I hem by old Jim Stanford, of Kaiu-  lnnps, who had gone In Ashcroft m  see them after reading in.the paper of  their arrival. The newspaper extract  Sam had in his pocket. It rend iiboul  ns follows :  "A men I'lNii."  " Considerable excitement has been caused  by the arrival from tlio north of Sam l-'owlt-r,  belter known ninniiit olel timers as "Trail Sam"  and I'ochet'ko Victoria, Hie well known Indian  chief. Thoy brought with them lite riehest  gold ijunrti: ever seen in town, us well ns a  considerable quantity of gold, some of whicli  thoy disponed of to one of our merchants.  There is naturally a groat amount .of excitement nnil eager eurlonlcy among olel miners.  Sam Is nif illiterate mini nut! bolh he i-.nil the  Tndlan aro very reticent ns to the o".iH-lfle>riil-  ity of the find. The have loll for Ihe cu-,i to  lind nn old pal, with wlic-m Ihey will proceed  back to the nilne.with innchinery, etc.���������A*-li-  croft correspondence."  With Lhe tools mentioned lhe Calgary iiiiiu proceeded to bore out. samples of the geild, and to weigh lho bars.  They were 22.J inches long, 3 inches  think, weighed 1-to lbs. nnd' made as  pretty tt sight as man e(vor set eyes on.  At the Indian's* request, (lie'- talked  wholly in Siwash which Sam interpreted) ��������� the -s-implf"- were -'laken-"dnwt'.  town to be tested and valued. An assayer, T. B. SenIt, nf Spokane, was  found at the Viatoria'-hotel. lie had  been in town for some days aiiel wns  arranging to open an office at either  Arrowhead nr Ferguson. He melted  lhe pieces put tbein through the,  nitric acid Lest, and valued Lhe gold at  ."10 an ounce, lie was eager lo know  where iL cninu from and. afler ho had  scon the quni'lK, offered gicnl iiti'ttice-  inents iT Stun would allow him to stake  a location.  Returning to the camp the Indian  was informed or lhe value of the bars  ���������$33,000. IIo got the visitor to put a  private   mark, on .them .while he and  Sam turned their backs and also got  iiiin to write on tbein their three  names.  Sam pi oposed tbtil the Indian should  now allow them to return to Calgary  wilh the bars.  "No." replied Pechecko (irmly placing his fool down, "as long its I.have'  that gold I've got niy foot on solid  ground; if [ let it gf wilh a stranger  my fool will bo nn quick sand."  "But (his gcntli'iiiiiu is squat'and  honest and I kin trust him," urged  Snm.  *"0 yes." rotorlc-d Pechecko like u  (lash, "thnt's what you I bought about  the little white faced, nice talking  fellow nn (he cars lhat swindled you  on I of $150."  " I would give anything if that had  not happened," whispered Sum. "Pechecko has not got the same: confidence*  in nie that ho iiued to have before  that."  After some further parley the Indian  siiid he would bo content if the banker  in Calgary sent Ii im $11,200 as his  share of tho proceeds nf the gold. And  as that was the only thing ho woulel  agree to, and Sam explained tbat if  he once got "cemlrary" nothing could  bo done with him, it was decided to  return tn Calgary and report, the*.  Indian having previously icquii-ecl tho  visitor to take an  OATH OF  SECRECY.  The banker, after taking due precautions, accompanied lhe two from  Revelstoke with the money, saw the  gold, was s.'itisjfied with everything,  paid ovci the cash, brought back the  bars and deposited them in the bank  vault, it being understood that"Sam  was to return on the next train wilh  three more bars, which they had kept  buried nt aunt her ramp about seven  miles away, nnd of which.the Cnlgary  meii were only informed after the  Indian hail been satisfied, by their  bringing the money, that ho could  trust them. lie was also to brim;  back the $11,200 to be depositeel in list*  bank.  Innumerable, details,   borne   almost  humorous, some verging on the tragic  and all strikingly realistic and corro-  bni'.'itiiig tho main story, would have to  bo filled iu tliel spaee permit, but to cut  the Lile sboil, afler one   of   the   bars  ad been shipped ea^l tn I be bank's  bead ollice Uie discovery was accidottl-  ni.-ule thai  Tim iiahs weiik sruitioi.-  Tho outside! wns shining gold, worth  $10. an ounce, but Lho inside was cop-  pei���������nl II cents a pound. Tho shock  to the two citizens concerned may be  imagined. They had been basely  duped, and by as clover a gang of  swindlers as ever walked the earth.  Tlfu police weio at once set in motion  tt nd in a few hours it, wits learned that  some of the * fraudulently obtained  bills had been changed in the States.  Detectives are now on the. track nnd  the hope of everyone is Hint the criminals may bo caught '.mil brought back  to face what will be a notable trial in  (he annuls nf Canadian justice. What  the results will be for Lhe victims of  tho il-ii-ing crime is nol yet known, but  it is a grave matter, and there aro men  in Calgary who have nothing but luck  lo thank that they are not in Lhe same  predicament.  ODDS   AND   ENDS  Passing Notes on Men and   Things   in  General.  ' Major Walsh, who has been appointed chiur administrator in Yukon, is an  old oflicer of the- Northwest Mounted  Police. He is it mini nf cnnsideiable  dulcrminaliun and ability, as is sulli-  t-ieiiitly proved by the Tact Lhat with a  small force of iiboul twenty police, he  handled the whole Sioux nation, after  Ihey had retreated to Wood Mountain in the Territories after the Custer  massacre. There wore nearly 1.100  lodges of them, nnd law anil order  was preserved and arrests made, if  occasion'required, by Walsh and his  men with a nonchalance, which held-  the Sioux almost stupilied. At the  '.nine time Walsh look such good care  that his doings should* be "kept*hefmv  the people of Canada through the  medium of the press,- Hint most people in Ontario were under the iin-  pi ession lhat he* wns in command of  tiio whole Mounted Police force and it  used to lake: considerable evidence nf  their own .senses to convince recruits  f.teiin lho east that such wtis not the  case. Walsh will make a good man  in Yukon, and both -himself and the  country will be well advertised, ns  snnn as ho gets up there.  Dr. Lewis," a well-known Chicago  lecturer, has recently returned from a  trip through Kootenay. Speaking to  it Free Press reporter, he sail]: _'_We  have been to BanllT Glacier, Revelstoke. Kootenay, Nelson. Kaslo, San-  eloii. Nakusp and ninny other poinds  in British Columbia. Tho situation of  Sandon i.s most most unique. It is n  city of n day. One fieshet, one landslide, one fire, would wipe it cu' of  existence. Nakusp is the quietest and  nicest town with Llie linest prospects  wo visited. It is ideally situated on  Arrow Lakes, in the Oknnagnn district, that ideal valley country, anti  commands the entrance (o that do-  liyhtful heritage." The doctor's forthcoming ieeliue on the Kootenay will  contain some wonderful information,  if Use above is a. sample.  A Lewiston woman recently conceived I be itleii that she had swallowed  something hard, and that it had lodged  in ber stomach, anel she insisted nn  having an "-ray picture taken of her  whole body in order tbat the foreign  subalance might be located.

SPAIN  The assassination ol' Senor  Canovas, the prime minister of  Spain, cannot but draw attention  to the woeful spectacle which that  once powerful kingdom presents  to the world at the present day.  Three hundred years ago Spain  was at the height of her power.  Her internal government was  strong, her colonies in the eastern  and western hemispheres exceeded  in richness und extent those of all  the rest of the world, li~r ships  covered the ocean and her trade  was woild embracing. Since 1000  Her power has gradually declined,  her voice lias ceased to be heard in  the council oE the nations, ber  colonies have one by one drifted  away or been ceded to other  powers, her internal administration has been contiiiuallydisturbed  by civil war, beneath which the  government has become effete and  the national character lowered  The king, Alfonso XIII, is only 11  years old, aud his mother .Maria  Christina, who is Queeu Regent  during his minority, though  she is a woman of remarkable rectitude aud force of  character, seems unable to  cope with the- flood of troubles,  financial and administrative,  which are slowly producing aii-  -archy-and disruption The���������insurrection in Cuba is surely draining  Spain of her resources, the seeds  of anarchy are sown thickly  throughout the kingdom. One does  not need to pretend to any great  amouat of foresight to see that tbe  boy king may never be permitted  to take the reins of Government  into his own hands.  EA STERX1 J GNORANCE  The Victoria Colonist has made  an appeal to the Canadian press  anent the astounding disregard of  the geography of the routes to the  Yukon country displayed by the  o newspapers of Toronto and other  eastern towns. Our Victoria eon-  temporary says:  "A few days ago the Mail and  Empire printed a map of the  .Northwest; Coast, showiug the  Clondike. The only towns marked  on ic were Seattle, Juneau and  -Sitka. Ic seems absolutely impossible to comprehend how a  Canadian paper can excuse such  an exhibition of ignorance.  Thousand* of people in Toronto  are thinking of tlie Clondike, and  wondering how to get there.  JY hen they look iu the Mail and  LempiFe for information they find  no reference to the Canadian  Pacific Railway though it is incomparably the best means of  reaching the Coast: though they  are equal to any, no reference to  \ ictoria or Vancouver as outfitting points. In the name of com  nion sense when will Eastern  Canadian papers learn something  about the geography of the west."  The rebuke is well deserved, for  though the eastern papers are  teeming with news concerning the  gold fields, the hardships endured  by the miners and the fabulous  wealth of the Yukon valley, they  have almost ignored the Canadian  side of the question. The Seattle  papers are largely drawn from for  accounts of the mining, San Francisco authorities are quoted on  many phases of the matcer, and  a disinterested reader would imagine  that   Puget Sound had a  C.

Next month we will have a talk with you about general  Something else you all want to hear about, which is  Dry Goods  Carpets  Stores at Revelstoke Station, Revelstoke, Trout Lake City and Ferguson  monopoly of the trade to Dyea  aud Juneau.  The Colonist goes on to say:  "There is another side to the  case, and it is that the merchants  of the Coast cities of Canada have  the right to expect tbe newspapers  of the ease to help disabuse the  public mind of the carefully  fostered idea that;;the gold mines  are in United States territories,  aud hence that tho proper places  to outlit are the United States  cities. We in the west have a  right to expect this much from  the patriotism of the eastern  press. When those papers know  that Victoria is making a gallant  fight against .her United States  competitors for its proper share of  this Canadian trade, our eastern  newspapers will not be backward  in giving their * assistance. We  ask of them that they give special  prominence during the next t'e.v  months to the fact that the best  way to get from the east to the  Yukon mines is to travel over the  Canadian transcontinental line  and by Canadian steamships  running north: also that in  Victoria they will find tho most  experienced outfitters for prospectors and miners to be found in  America. The men who outfitted  for Cariboo, Cassiar aud Omineca  ���������for journeys quite as difficult  aud for isolatiou more complete  than are connected with mining in  -the���������"5uukon=ai:e���������ii" business in_  Victoria today, and can tell miners  and prospectors just what they  want to take with them and how  to pack it. The napers also should  tell that the Yukon, being in  Canadian territory, duty must be  paid on outfits from the United  States, and that everything can  be purchased just as cheaply in  Victoria as anywhere.  "We make this appeal to the  patriotism of tlie Eastern press.  In Seattle, Washington, outfits to  the value of iS323,000 were sold  during the hiit 11 days. If miners  understood that they could get  these goods as cheaply in Victoria  in the lirst instance and save the  duties, they would come here to  buy. It may not be possible to  convince all .the people who go  from the United States of thi*< fact;  but there should be no difficulty  in making it clear to Canadians.  It will be an unfortunate*tiling if  Canadians are not warned against  going to the United States to buy  goods to take into Canada. We  believe this appeal to the Eastern  press will not be in vain."  There is also another aspect of  the case which may prejudice tho  North West. It has been demonstrated beyond the shadow of a  doubt that the overland route via  Athabasca   Landing  offers   more  If  facilities, is shorter and safer than  the route via Dyea. The people of  Calgary and the North West are  Iarcely interested in the opening  up of this road, and the continual  booming of United States ports  and steamship lines, with their  routes which necessitate a  passage through American territory, is, to say the least, rather  exasperating when done through  the medium of Canadian papers  which ought to know better.  THE PRIME MINISTER OF SPAIN  FOULLY MURDERED  A    MOST    BRUTAL    AFFAIR  An Anarchist Shoots Senor Canovas���������  The Deed Was Done in His Wife's  Presence���������" Long Live Spain" Cried  the Patriotic Dying Premier.  Madrid, August S.���������Senor Canovas  Del Castillo, Prime Minister of Spain,  was assassinated to-day at Santa  Agucihi by iin anarchist.  The murderer fired three shots at  his* victim, one of which struck the  premier in (he forehead and another  in the chest. The wounded man fell  dying at bis wife's feet aim lingered in  agony for about an hour, passing  away with tlu* cry of '��������� Long Live  Spain,*' wliich were the last words he  uttered. The premier went to Simla  Agueda on Thursday to t-ike a three  weeks' course of the bathe, after  whicli he had expected to return to  San Sebastian to meet, the United  States Minister Woodford, when the  latter woulel. be otlicially reeeiyed by  the Queen Regent.  The assassin was arrested immediately, lie is a Neapolitan and gives  the name of Ilinaldi, but it is believed  that this is assumed, his real name  being Michele Angine Golli.

It is believed  that the assassin arrived at Santa  Agueda on the same day as the premier. He was seen lurking fre-ejuenlly  in the passages of the bathing establishment in a suspicious manner.

TllOJIseiN'S LAN.UNO, August 12.���������  ���������Messrs. Heat on i!" Thomson have got  (ho frame of their new house up nnd  closed in. It i.s going tn adel greatly  In the appearance of the: town. Luis  are becoming luoi-e valuable in this  place, iiiii- having changed hands today at three limes the original price.  There' is considerable excitement up  MiT>t'.gal Crock over the discovery of  gnhl lead.- carrying ore very similar to  the Reirisl.-ind cnunlry. Win. Null or,  Uubt. Lowroy, Tom llniirkeiiiid others  have made seven locations, and ."ire  now down iiboul 7 loot, on Nil tier's  claim. The1 croppings gave an n.-.-ay  of $7.80 in gold, besides silver and cupper. At it, depth of '1 feel they lind  another assay, which went, over $20.  and now tlie ore has improved so that  they expect an assay of uvor S30. C  P. Aiideison Incited a very promising  looking claim, the "Pikes Peak.*' It is  an iron, e-opper ore whicli lie says runs  in gold and cupper. Alossis. Anderson  and Citron have bought out Air. Beard.  Air. Anderson is very coulhlctil that  on AlcDugal Creek there will bo a gold  camp equal to any in B. C. 1 have  just been infoi-ineil that Nutlet- and  his partners have now a 7-foot load,  with a puystreak of solid ore.   ���������  Air. IS. Blnin brought in his wife and  four children (his week, and have  settled ;tt the Landing. Iii case an.  other family settles here we will have  children enough to have, a school.  As most of the minors of lhe Ltu-de.-iu  district frequent, this plane, it being  the business centre, they are; talking  uf petitioning the -Minister of Alines to  locale a recording oflice at this point.  As it is now Ihey have to make, a trip  of three miles by canoe in order to  record a claim. No doubt the Landing  will secure1, in the near future, a telegraph and recording ollice.  Air. I. AI. Citron is getting ready' to  build :t new store.  It is said that the C. P. R. intend to  build ti huge Hunting wharf hero lo  acctniiniotlate liieir increasing trade.  Afler next week five tons of ore is" to  arrive at lhe Lauding daily, for shipment.  Mr. 10. H. Fletcher. P. 0. Inspector,  paid us ii visit, yesterday, lie is trying  to .-iri-iinge for a ti-i-weekly service between Arrowhead anil Ferguson. It  is report eel I but Messrs. Craig to llill-  ltiiin have si'cui'Cil the conl'i-act for  carrying Lhe mails. Air. FleLebei- expressed his surprise, at the progress of  the Lurdciiii in general.  1 understand that, a strike of free  gold ore has boon made on Gainer  crock that is extremely rich, but the  particulars are net at band.  Constable Page took bis first prison-"  er through the Landing to-day. I am  informed that Lhe charge is the theft  of two saddles. It is also repot ted  lliat, the prisoner only tried to detain  the saddles- tn seeui-e._.thci payment of  bis wage-'. However ihe matt or will  be threshed out in court.  Politics hern is very quiet. Alost of  the liberals here are in favor of_ fighting tbe; next, provincial olcctinn, on  p.trtv lines, while, most of lhe conservatives piefei to go to the; poll.- or. llu*  present lines.���������tiie"iiis"aneltbe "outs."  Party lines are drawn in other provinces", am! I am of the opinion thai  they should l>e drawn in this at the  next e-lcc-tion. As it is now. lusither  party will shoulder the shortcomings  e >i ;iifae! fiiini^iff.TtioTr"        ^^*���������������������������=������������������  The KooLena'utn stales that thf government has made an nppropviiition  of iiVr) towards the L-irdo-'ii-eutt IjiKe  trail.
