IT IS ALL"BLUFF  Talk About Excluding Americams From  Working on Railways Means Nothing  Ever since werk was commenced upon the CrowVNest road the Tribune  has contended that the statements lo  the effect that the government had arranged matters so that the work was  reserved for Canadians, were" not in  accordance with the facts. Citizens of  the United States are employed upon  the Crow's Nest road and what is  more, they have secureel contracts for  work upon the same.  Captain Arinstrong.'of Golden, manager of the International Trailing company, is rather well known throughout the interior. What he says respecting the employment of citizens  of the United States upon the railway  will no doubt have more weight than  the statements made in this connection  by the editor of the Province. In a  recent interview Capt. Armstrong  said: "All this' talk about the alien  law is a big Jbugaboo. There is work  fur every man in the Fort Steele country. No man yet in East Kootenay  has been asken his nationality, on the  C. N. P. railway- or anywhere else.  Turks have the same show in that  country as the Bluenoses. The C. N.  P. railway is beginning active operations and there are more men in the  district than. ever" before. Nevertheless, as I said, there is work for all  who are there."���������Nelson Tribune.

S.  W. C. Niehol, who for a short time  wns editor of the Kaslo Kootenaian,  passed through Nelson on Thursday  on his way to the coast. Walter says  that he could not remain on the Kootenaian because the patrons of the  paper insisted upon his conducting an  American newspaper upon Canadian  soil. Mayor' Green and one 01* two  others were all right upon the question  but many of the business men  of Kaslo threatened to withdraw their  support if the ultra-Canadian tone of  the paper was _not_. changed. To the  ordinary'-niind the" thought ywould  suggest itself* that . the newspaper  which has not "sufficient' courage to  withstand the bulldozing of alien advertisers should refrain from discussing Canadian issues.���������Nelson Tribune.  Hon. Henry Cargill, M.P., for Bruce,  Out., Mrs. Cargill and the Misses Car-  gill were in town on Sunday on their  way from the lower country to California. Mr. Cargill was delighted  with his trip through the mining districts, and will be a staunch supporter  of Kootenay interests in the honse in  future. "He was very favorably impressed -with-the-situat ion��������� here���������and  considers that Revelstoke is a place  with a great future before it.  Mr. R. M. Grogan, of-the firm of  Rolt & Grogan, mining brokers, Rossland, is in town. He has been making  an extended trip through theoLardeau  ���������end Trout Lake districts in the interests of his firm and has acquired some  good properties. He will pay a visit  to Sicamous before going south again.  A delegation of Donald citizens waited on Supt. Diit'hesnay 011 Monday on  the subject of the workshops. They  asked him if, the shops were to be  moved to either Golden or Revelstoke,  and if so, when. The reply was that  they certainly would not be removed  to Golden and might not be moved at  all for a year. <S  Dr. Harrison, ex-premier of,] Manitoba, and .Mrs. Harrison, went through  yesterday for the east. They have been  on a two weeks tour in the lower  country. The doctor was greatly  struck with the favorable prospects  of this place, which he considers will  share the commercial supremacy, of  Kootenay with Nelson.  A party consisting of Hon. S. C.  Wood, of Toronto, and his son W. W.  Wood and Mr. John Russell, of Winnipeg, were at the Hotel Revelstoke  yesterday on return from a trip to  Rossland and the Lardeau. They  have interests in both districts.  Mr. John Aikenheael. of the firm of  Aikenhead Bros., a large jewellers  firm on Adelaide St.. Toronto, intends  to open a jeweller's store here probably on Front St.  Frank Gray, an old Edmonton man.  who has made quite a stake in Sandon,  went through yesterday to strike the  trail feir Klondike by the overland  route.  Mr. F. de Journel, who brought a  dramatic company here last fall, is  giving up both his law and drama and  going to the Yukon. He has recently  been playing with great success in  California.  Taylor Amalgamating   and  Washing: Machine,  A Herald representative paid a visit  on Monday to the scene of-operations  at the Revelstoke  Development Co.'s  camp, which iw situated  about a mile  np   the  river   from town and on tho  other bank,   The machinery is   now  working and some dirt is   being put  through, but the rise of water in  the  river  renders   the   grade of the fiume  too slight for the machine to work at  its full capacity.   The dirt is thrown  into a sluice and screened to any size  requisite.   The water, which is pumped   into  the  head of the flume hy a  Northey  pump   on ..the scow, carries  the fine stuff down anil is divided olf  by slats in the end of the flume into as  many   machines   as   the    water   will  supply.    The. water  runs  from   the  sluice into a  conductor over a water-  wheel, which can if there is sufficient  power be used as a motor,' the engine  being only nusilary.   The dirt passes  under the wheel, which breaks it up  and   on   to  the   amalgamator, which  consists of a cylinder with floats revolving over a semi circular pan of mercury.   The cylinder"- revolves at   the  rate of speed necessary to prevent the  escape of the mercury, while the floats  force  the dirt,   through the mercury  and discharge it ou to a shaking table,  the   mercury  slipping back into the  pan.   The shaking table, which works  with  a  reciprocating   motion and is  provided with mercury in every recess,  rewashes the dirt and in turn (discharges it through ave'rtical machinewitha  pan   motion' into   the   waste.     This  machine  is  also   provided "with mercury in every recess", preventing any  gold   from  escaping   the    device.   If  black   sanel, is   plentiful   a,magnetic  attachment is provided for extracting  the magnetic black sand, leaving the  sulphiirets and  pyrites-behind.   This  renders  it possible   to   handle larger  quantities of dirt. The magnetic black  sand   is   valueless  carrying J no gold.  .The ��������� ,machine__._works  smoothly". and  without a hitch fi-om' "clogging" or silt-  ing.*-.There seems no reason whatever  why the" venture should not prove a  big success.

From Our Own Correspondent.  Robson, B. C, Aug. 23���������It is learned  here from good authority that the C.  P. R. have appropriated $10,000 for  improvements on the C. & K. roael between Nelson and; Robson, along the  rocky shore of the Kootenay river,  where curves uf over 23 degrees occur,  which when straightened ont, will  greatly improve the road bed, and allow faster time. On the Slocan branch  of the C. to K railway grading is being  pushed ahead as rapidly as men and  teams can remove the dirt, while  track-laying commenced a few days  ago at tlie lower end, and will without  interruption" keep pace with the  graders.  Friendly disposed Rossltiuders are  agitating the smelter location, and  freely endorse Rohson's claim as being  the best place for it. This is no dream.  Goodprospectsof pyrrhotite ore have  recently been found not far from the  townsite, and only half a mile from  the lake shore, which, promise to develope into paying properties.  A number of prospectors are now  out in the" mountains at the head of  Pass Creek, where very little prospecting has been done heretofore. Yesterday Joe Mayo and Jerry McBride returned from a- four day's trip and  brought in some very nice specimens  of iron pyrites and report favorably  of their discoveries.  It has been very lively around the  station for the past week, as .not less  than seven car loads of freight was  removed at any time.

VISIT OF COL. BAKER  His  Mr.  THE RISING IN INDIA-  time only each day.  In summer the sun shines early and  sets late. There are only a few hours  when it is not shining directly on  Alaska.  The Yukon is- closed by ice from  November to the latter end of May.  Abundance > of fine grass flourishes  near the rivers in summer.  At a distance of GOO utiles from the  ocean the Yukon river is more than a  mile wide.  The Klondyke mining region is in  the latitude of Iceland and lower  Greenland.  Of.the seven trading stations established in the Yukon district five are  located upon the river bank.  Dogs are worth (heir weight in gold.  A good long haired dog is worth from  $100 to $200.  Tbe thermometer goes as-low as 65  degrees on the Klondike.  Police Court  Before F. Fraser, J. P.  Monday afternoon W. C. Niceley.  assistant porter at the Hotel Revelstoke, was charged with stealing $50  out of a trunk belonging to Miss Brack  one of the waitresses in the hotel.  Forty dollars of the money was found  in a sock belonging to the prisoner in  the hotel. He was committed for trial  and went down to Kamloops jail on  Monday.  Rebel George.  Thos. Hourston,  monton merchant  Co.'s man. was in  He   had sold   out  a prominent Ed-  and an old H.

The enterprising firm of Bourne  Bros, are buihling a 14x50 addition to  their present store, which will be used  exclusively for a pc,st office.  Judge Forin was registered at the  Hotel Revelstoke yesterday.  A-St. Paul despatch dated* the 20th,  says: "A stranger said to be agent of  one of the big Canadian banks at or  near Calgary, has held a detective at  Seattle, Wash., for some clays looking  up the perpetrators of an $11,000 gold  brick swindle, but so far without success. It is slated that the price of the  gold brick was paid in Canadian money  and that the chief rogue passed  through Seattle, stopping long enough  to exchange the original package of  money he-received for United States  money. It was thought that the ring  leader of the swindlers was W. H.  Knowlton, alias "Rebel George," who  is well known in all the cities from  Chicago to tho Pacific. Whoever did  the job got out of the way in quick  order, and the hanker has lost his job."  This man "Rebel George" was re  cognized by a sporting man in Golden,  going east on his way to Calgary on  Monday before the perpetration of the  of tho fraud here. He at once spotted  him as one of the most accomplished  "lightening change artists'"and swindlers in America. At one time in  Spokane in the character of an old  farmer in a straw hat, linen duster and  reddish whiskers, he swindled a farmer out of some money. When the  latter discovered his loss there was a  big row, in the midst of which "Rebel  George" strolled into the mom, dressed  up in the latest fashion with a black  frock coat, white vest and cane, inquiring what all the trouble was about.  The detectives believe that they  bave.him located in the States, as well  as the assayer. If this is so they cannot be on the road to Klondike as reported. _  Mr. J. R. Hull of Kamloops, is in  town. He is as yet undecided as to  whether to put up his new butcher  shop on Douglas St, this year or not.  Mr. H. H. Watson, of the firm of  McDowell, Atkins, Watson, is on a  business visit to town.  Opinions   on  the   Opposition,  Higgins, and Other Matters.  A Herald reporter lvid a pleasant  interview with Col. Baker, Provincial  Secretary, duriiig his visit here on  Monday. The Colonel expressed  himself as anxious to find out the  causes of complaint against the government. He said he was in the habit  of asking what objections there were  against each and every department.  Take his own, Education, when he  asked whether there was any fault to  find there, the answer was "No,"  Education is all right." "Anything  wrong with the. mining laws ?" "No  the mining laws were the best in the  world." "Anything -to complain  about in the administration of law and  order?" "No, no complaint there,"  "Anything in connection with the  finances of the provir.ee, our bonds are  quoted at 102 in ..the old country,!''  "No, that is all right." "Then," pursued the Colonel, "I ask them what  the kick is."  In response to this invitation the  condition of the river bank here was  instanced as a local source of irritation against the present administration, to which the Colonel replied that  while Mr. Davie, when piemier, was  distinctly in the wrong in promising  to assist in the preservation of the  bank, the cabinet could not do otherwise than! they have done. They were  in office to defend the provincial revenues and could not allow them to be  expended on work, which it was distinctly the business of the Federal  government, which owned the Columbia river, to perforin. However, a  commissioner had been sent from  Ottawa by the Dominion authorities,  who was lo inquire into this question  of the river bank here, as well as the  townsite title matter, and other points  at issue between the two governments,  such as the Indian question.  The Cassiar "Railway Aid bill was  then cited as being a distinctly unpopular" measure in nKootenrty. ."Now,"  said'the Colonel, "have you rea'd the  'bill ?" The scribe-replied that he had.  "Because the manager of a big mine  in East Kootenay told nie that he objected to this bill from whtit he had  been told about it, hut when I.ex-,  plained the matter to him, he said'- he  wished that the' government would  send fn sonie'people like Mr. Pike into  that part of the country. The Cassiar  railway company.have either to take  hold of a prospei'tor's claim and de-  velope it, allowing him one half of the  profits, or else let him dispose of it at  his own terms. Prospectors are generally glad to take a good deal less  than a-half-to gctTtheir_claims-developed. And as a'matter of fact the  prospectors have no objection to going  into Cassiar and making locations under the terms of the act, as Mr. Pike  told nie that they were begging him  to select his land and let them go in."  At this point, Mr. Chas. Lindmark  and Principal McTaggart joined the  group and _a somewhat lively discussion arose as to how many children  were present at an unexpected visit  paid that morning by the Colonel as  Minister of Education to the public  school. The Colonel thought thirty  while the trustee and teacher protested that there were sixty-one-. How  ever it was- agreed that there was  plenty of room in the building and  that perhaps some of the sixty-one  were only very little one?, and so  escaped ihe Colonel's observations.  Renewing the Cassiar topic the  Colonel animadverted on the conduct  of Mr. Higgins, who had made this  one of the principal subjects of attack  during his visit to Kootenay. " I assure you," said the Colonel, " one of  the last things that Mr. Higgins did.  at the close of the session, was to lay  his hand on Premier Turner's arm anel  assure him of his continued suppoi t  And with this rather startling piece  Of inside history and a hearty shake of  the hand all round the Colonel turned  away to join Mr. Shaughnessy, with  whom he was engaged lo make a trip  to Rossland,where there are 1500 school  children demanding school accommodation and nothing adequate at pies-  eut provided to meet the sudden  requirements of the situation.

The facts which have leaked out are  as follows: At 3 o'clock a bomb was  thrown just outside the police head  quarters in the Per.a district, but it  failed to explode. Almost at the same  moment an Armenian, whose name is  believed to be Caravbet, was arrested  ��������� at the Imperial Ottoman Bauk in the  Galata district. He was carrying a  package of explosives which he was  attempting to ignite.  The second bomb exploded in the  private road between the offices of the  Grand Vizier, and. the State Council  House. One man was killed and several others severely injured.  The police and the guards at the  Sultan's Palace are taking extraordinary precautions, which have  given colour to a rumour that the  bomb throwing is a part of a widespread plot.  The most abject terror prevails in  the precincts of the palace.  Keep Your  Eye   on  The Great  Lardeau Townsite  A QUEBEC MYSTERY  Body of a.

Anollier cherished delusion is gone,  liver since"-IJouort Bruce became a character in - historical literature we hnvn  heard and believed the story of the  spider, whose persistent industry before  liis eyes gave him fresh courage to renew  the struggle for Scottish liberty against  tlie English foe. For generations that  spider has,. gone spinning through the  imaginationluntil the threads of tho tali:  became ns firmly fixed-in our minds as  over Robert Bruce was upon his throne.  The incident has been one of the stock  themes* in the addresses of school child,  ren for nigh a century. School histories have pictured it as one of the great  ithings_in_-their��������� somewhat-hazy.-records,  of mediaeval Scotland.  "William Tell and tlie apple might be  nothing but a sun myth, but we felt  we could cling to Bruce* and the spider;  there was something human and likely  about that, while the exploit of shooting  an apple from a boy's head with a crossbow was a little uncanny. It seems,  however, that our faith is again to be  fluted and once more the finger of scorn  points us out as a credulous folk, easily  pleased with nn old wives' tale.  A now life of Robert Bruce is about  to be published, written by one of those  pestilent fellows whose thirst for realism  Is sufficient to wreck all that is romantic  in twenty literatures if he have the op-  portiinitj-. This historical Grailgrinel has  discovered that there is no foundation  for the story of Bruce and the spieler,  that lho plucky fellow never watched  tire little insect triumph over obstacles,  wns never encouraged thereby to fresh  efforts against his foes, and that really  tbe onlv fact in the whole business watt  the fighting, but that is so remote and  bo common that no one is iuterested.���������  Brooklyn Engf*.

After his departure a bomb exploded  along the route the president had  followed and although no damage was  done and in spite of the fact that  nobody was hurt, the most intense  excitement prevailed for a long time  and sensational reports circulated that  those who exploded the bomb  intended an outrage of a more serious  nature. . ,  Later in the day officials of the perfecting of police, who have been investigating the fragment of the bomb,  declared it had consisted of an iron  tube, placed in un empty store close  to the corner of the Boulevard de Mag  cnta and Hue Lafayette.

He has held  this post over since, being better  known for many years as Sir William  Thompson.

They are situated  on Broken hill, about half a mile from  the big glacier. The ledge where  exposed is eight foot wiile and strong  and carries extraordinary high grade  ore.' Besides running well in gold the  ore has .big,values in silver 'ind copper.  An average assay goes "7 in gold anel  200 oz. in silver. Chloride of silver,  black sulpliufets, gray copper and  copper sulphiu els are what yield the  big returns. Colonel Topping will put  a force of- men to work on the property at once and expects to be shipping  ore in 30 clays.  Messrs."J.M.

The  formation is schist with limestone  dykes running through it in a north  westerly and,southeasterly direction  Mr. Shiinnon remarked that the indi  ciitions___v.'_e_i_e___.vei_y favorable for free  milling gold and thinks if the belt  were followed till it strikes the granite  some very valuable discoveries would  be made. The district needs .a trail to  make it accessible and in view of the  extraordinary richness of the surface  indications the Herald suggests that  Col. Btikei- should be approached on  liis return from the south in Order''to  see if a grant cannot be obtained for  the purpose. Prospectors are anxious  to get in supplies and open up their  claims.  The Slocan Pione-er, in reference to  the item about the Sisters Mayfair,  which appeared in the Nelson Miner  says: Mrs. Ileiel. referred to above,  better known by her stage name of  Miss Lou Mayfair, readily admits that  she is married and says that she wan  15 years e,ild. Her relations with her  husband, who is said to he industrious  and respectable, and who is a bookkeeper at Revelstoke, appears to be  amicable" That,she and her friend  Miss Crawford have found it necessary  to put their musical talents to practical use to help^tnake a living is nothing against them, and hardly justifies  the curiosity that prompted the wiring  of a cablegram to.Scotland and return  to learri more; aboiit them.
