THE TAHGIER/MINE, LIMITED  The   Report of the    Chairman  at   the  General Meeting of the Stockholders.  The first (statutory) general meeting  meeting of this Ccunp.'.ny   was hold on  1-Vli. llltli at Winchester House, 10. C,  under  Llie  presidency  of  the   Earl nf  Essex.   The secretury, ."Ir. ]{. Stanley  William*', having read the notice convening the meeting,    the   chairman,  11ftor referring to the fart I hat lhis was  tin; statutory meeting of the company,  said :    The  Company  was  formed for.  the purpose of iicrpiii-iug  the  mineral,  property  known  as the Tangier, situated aiiout twenty-live miles mirth   of  the  Canadian, Pacific  1 tail way.    This  minernl   property,   wliich   almost   adjoins  the   "Waverley   Mine,   formerly  lielonged to the  Goldfields  of   Biitish  Columbia, Limited, nnd Mint Company  ciirricd   out    sutiii-ienl    development  work on the property   to prove that it  contained a large and rich  vein of ore,  consisting   of   iron    pyrites   carrying  gold.'mid   grey   copper    and   galena,  carrying if very  high   value  of silver.  .This vein of ore has  been proved to lie  aiiout ]r> feet wide.    A'-cordiiu; to Mr.  Otto   Abeling.   who    lias   had   aliotit  twenty years' experience, of the mines  of .North America, the showing of high  grtide oie on the Tangier is  one which  hi*  has  never seen" -equalled, or   even  approached, during all his experience.  Unlike the  Wuverley  .Mine, which' is  almost  entirely   a   tunnelling proposition,  the. Tangier  will   have   to " be  developed   Iiy   means   of  shafts,   and  after consultation  with  Jlr. Abeling,  your Board has arranged to order suitable sinking,   pumping,   and   winding  plant,   and   such   machinery   will   Ixi  erected on lhe mine at the earliest possible  moment.    Prom   present  indications  we  arts of  the opinion that the  Tangier will lie able lo continue regular shipments as .soon as the necessary  plant  has   been   elected  on the mine.  At  the  present time, operations'have  lie't'ii'.di'scoiitiniied   pending" the  erection   of . sncli   plant,.and ��������� also- partly  owing to the fact that the wagon road  whicli we have built from Albert Cun-  "ynii, 011 the O. P. Jl., litis been tempor-  .irily   blocked   by   snow'   slides.    It is  quite impossible   at   the   present  time  foi' us to give you tm -estimate of what  the future of the Tangier Mine is likelv  to  prove ; but  there, is one statement  which   I  have  confidence  in   milking,  and it is thai if this gri at, vein of high-  grade ore proves  its  permanency and  richness   at   depth, you   will   htive.-ui  ; investment,   that   will   yield you   itn-  nien'se profit & in the future.    We have  received     "expert   advice    from   men  capable   of   giving   such   advice,   and  ���������they-h.-ive-been-lcad-tn-believe-llint-ib  is practically   impossible for this great  vein to pinch   out.    The  hanging  and  foot wall are  holh  distinctly  defined',  and  in   no  possible  sense of the term  can this vein-be   considered,  pocketty.  I am justified  in  saying this Tangier  property offers an  extremely  promising  mining   speculation.    All   mining  ventures arc more or less  speculative ;  hut if ever a property held  out  favorable inducements for  the  expenditure  of capital on development  work.it is  the   Tangier.     The  working foreman  nt your mine under Mr. Graham i.s Mr.  lla/.t'll  iu  Britis-h   Columbia-    Befoie  accepting  the position    olfered   him.  .Mr. Ilazell   prolfered   to    inspect   the  property,  nud   he   then   immediately  agreed 10 accept the appointment. The  latest information we have received is  a cable report  from  Mr. Ilazell, dated  February loth, in which he states that  Lhe development work   up to date consists of two  tunnels,  two ctoss-cuts,  and 11 drift.   The length of one- of. the  tunnels is SO ft.    Where- the  vein  has  been intersected it proves to he about  15  ft. wide, of  which 5 ft. consists of  concentrating ore, giving a   value  in  gold alone of $30 per ton.   The balance  of this vein   consists  of exceptionally  high-grade ore, whicli has heen proved  to contain a considerable value, in gold  and copper, in addition   to a very high  value in silver.    Of this clean shipping  ore Mr. Jltf/.ell informs us that  he has  already shipped lTi tons of the approximate value of   $1700, equal in   Jjuglish  money   to   ;C2o   (is, yd. per   Ion.     Mr.  Ilazell further advises us lo proceed at,  once   with   the   sirkingof it  verLic.-il  shaft to a depth of IM fl., nnd to drive  tin the ore bodies,    lie   stales that the  work will require hoisting nnd   pumping   machinery, and that  the  present  iiitlic.'ilions  of  the mine  fully  justify  this outlay.    When it is borne in mind  that   this   Tangier   ore docs not only  carry  those  high   values in  gold, but  also is particularly rich   in silver, with  considerable   quant ities   of   lead   and  copper,  its   aliuoi.t   unique   character  will he understood, and its great value  recognized.      Numerous   assays   have  proved the ore to  ciinluhron nn  average   over   J00   oz.' of    silver    to   Lhe  ton.    Willi     regard   (o     the     transportation     of     the     ore.    you     may  have noticed iu   Jlr.  Abeling's  report,  his estimate as to  the   quantity   anil  value of oie which hns been proved  on  the   Waverley   Aline,   which   adjoins  the Tangier Mine, anil that in his opinion   snflicient.   ore   b.-dies   have ' been  developed to justify the  necessary  expenditure which will be entailed in the  building   of" 11. railroad   from   Allien  Canyon to this group of  mines.   The  Tangier Board, in conjunction with the  Goldfields      of      British       Columbia,  Limited,   and    the   Waverley     Mine,  Limited, have; decided to co-operate  in  the building of 11. railroad   which   will  connect your mine with the Canadian  Pacific Railroad, and a J3ill asking  for  the  necessary   powers   is   now    being  brought, into the Legislative Asscin'nly  of  British   Colunibi-t.     As   soon    as  these powers have   been   obtained. Unnecessary arrangemeiils will   be  made  for the building of the railroad, and  it  is quite possible that before the winter  of 1S0S sets in we shall have a railroad  cti]ialile of conveying from the mines 11  very, large  output  of cue.    Further, I  may   say   that , provisional    arrangements have already been made with the  .Dominion   GovernuVeut    at    Ottawa,  whereby certain hind  on   the   Illerille-  iv.-iet   Kiver. ��������� close   to   the   Canadian  Pacific n.iilroad. will be granted to  us  for the  purposes of a smelter.    With  a railroad lo convey the ore  frain   the  mine, and tt smelter at Albert  Canyon  to treat the ores, we 'shall   be  able   to  reduce the gross cost of production and  reduction to a minimum, with   the  re-  suit that, the highest possible  amount  of profit, will be made.  The b-il.-ince of  the report   will   appear in our next issue.  C. B. Hume & Co,  Revelstoke Station, Revelstoke and  Trout Lake City, B. C.  Dea'h of Chief Justice Davie.

" <_^-'W. A. Griffiths & Co.,  Dr.tOGtsTj, Kevelstoke.  There is no truth in the sensational  rumors of war between Spain and the  United States cm rent round town  yesterday. The report is stated to have  originated in a. lower country newspaper oflice. The very latesi. news is  given in our despatches.  A story is told in the Kamloops  Sentinel that a number of Indians  have beett washing on Kanaka bar, a  little berow Lytton. for some time  past and making as high as $50 a day  per head.  The ca uso of the delay of No. 2 on  Sunday was an extensive slide and  washout at Boston Bur .Bluff which  buried the track 100 feet deep under  rock and dirt. The train was held at  Agassiz all night.  Tbe .Western Mining "World, one of  the most influential mining journals  in the western states, reprints in its  current issue the articles on Laforme  and Griiner Creeks', which recently  appeared, in the Hekald.  CORRESPONDENCE  A   Prospectors    Opinion   About   North  Kootenay and Revelstoke.  To the l.iliior of Ihe 11 i:l:ai.1>.  .Some, of the local people know that  llie territory surrounding Kevelstoke;  the Uig lJeiid. Trout. Luke, Fish Creek,  and other close mining districts,  abounds in prccii.iisiiiincr.-ils, very few  however beyond the lifty mile radius  of Kevelstoke have got any idea of the  vast ore deposits that in the lasL few  years' roaming prospectors have discovered I here. The same ch.'iracLer'of  cue that made the. Slocan country  famous as a large producer, the same  that made many an American 'un independent'"'fortune, such as i.s found in  the Payne, lluth. lleco, Slocan Star  and Whitewater mines, can bo found  within fifty miles of I'evclstoke in  large quaiililjies ; huge leads of base  metal, copper ore, arsenical and magnetic iron, tin* s.-iini! cuppings that  made the Kossland ramp a heavy shipper, und fiee milling prop.,i'-ilions,also,  with free gold often visible to the  nuked eye, bul. who knows.of these  hidden riches outside of the searching  irospector?  Having labored hard till summer,the  coming snowstorm brings him hack  to town, and tit Lhe end of his hazardous and laborious journeys in nine  limes nut ot' ten lu finds himself broke,  ii: toes sticking out of his shoes, his  old overalls stained with bacon grease,  lit for ti soap factory, and full of holes  burnt- on chilly nights on scorching  camp fires, tind fed on poorly cooked  bannock and beans, he is a hard looking sight and not in shape to make his  finds revive. Ilu 1ms got. to In* satisfied to stand the storekeeper oil' nnd  work his jawbone to the extent of ti  few dollars, because, what is lie going  to do? Tliere are no mines ' in the  vicinity where the prod net of his muscle,  could replenish his empty pocket, book  and travelling to working mining  camps" is".expensive,' the C. P. K..system or other transportation companies  system being on ii cash basis. And so  after peddling his rocks round for a  few weeks, trying to catch what he  calls '-suckers," he either falls into the  clutches of tho so called middleman,  who is looking for options on claims  to be put on the English market at an  enhanced value, hut never I'gares on  opening up a prospect himself, his only  aim being to get the 10 per cent, on'a  big bond.  Or otherwise the poor unfortunate  prospector manages to wind up in  some charitable hoarding place, where  after a lapse of a couple of moons, and  the everv day higher rising sun tin*  jiOLincingit(>-hiiii-theari-ival-of=anothei!  summer, he comes to the conclusion  that, it is better for his general welfare  lo exchange his claims lor beefsteaks  tind Irish stews, than to have them  sold the* next season a I. public auction  lo the highest bidder.  J3ut the said claims are only worked  to the extent of li few gopher holes and  some flaming advertisitients about rich  strikes in the local papers. And the  Big Bend, Trout Lake snid Pish Creek  districts remain tin unknown quantity  to the investing public it*. London, New  York and other inoney centres.  Now, alter stating facts as you see.  them every day, we come to the point.  Incorporate Itevelstoke, expend a few  thousand dollars iu advertising lluvel-  sl.oke's resources, and let everybody  according to his share bear part of the  incurring burden uud reap the rich  harvest that will come, when those  people, attracted by your advertisement.-, will open up your mines and  send cut* load*; of ore evei y day out of  the Big Bend, Trout Jjttke and Pish  Creek. Itemenilier that one shipping  mine is worth tt dozen or so wild cat  schemes that some, unscrupulous promoting has originated. And it will  nol, he long before the prosperous mer  chant will have a bright smile on his  once mourning face again, because the  word jawbone he hardly knows, as  everybody is working that is looking  for a job, the miner, the inechanic-the  laborer and every body else. And  Revelstoke, once a getting off place to  Rossland, Nelson, or Kaslo and Sandon, will be a, flourishing city of rosy  homes in the beautiful valley of the  old Columbia.  PmisPKcxon.

C. B. Hume & Co.  THE FRENCH CREEK CO.  Hearing by the   Gold   Commissioner   o:  the Objections.  The., hearing of the objections riised  by lhe French Creek Co. lo the granting of placer leases on French Creek to  F. Vandall, S. 13ate and M. Black wius  cominenied 011 Monday at - p. in.  XV. White. Q.O.. appeared for F. Van-  dull and the others and A. G. M.  Spragge for the company. The company own, five bench claims on the  west .side of the. creek in the older  named following up che. creek. Xtigget,  Bahamas, a fractional claim, Gold  Hill, Royal and Chicago. On the opposite side, of the creek are the bench  claims owned by t.he Stoneleigh .Mining Co., wliich is working with the  J-Yrnrh Creek Co. The creek claims  fur which application i--" being made  are three in number and run for a mile  and a.half on the creek, under the  Nugget, .-md Gold Mill'.bench'claim--.  Directly above them on the creek lies  the well-known Consolation placer  mine.  The first witness examined was Mr.  J. M. SkealV, the euginer of both the  Fiench Creek and Stoneleigh Mining  Companies. His examination shewed  thiil the French Creek company are  engaged in putting in, ,-i flume 12.200  feet long running from French creek to  a point opposite the old' Gold Hill  tunnel and.terminating til an elevation  of -J00 feet ti hove the mouth of the  tunnel. From this point another  flume will carry the water Lo a penstock, whence it is to be conveyed by  pipes 10 the gravel, wliich there is 00  feet deep. The tailings are lo he conveyed into the creek hy a bed rock  flume and discharged at a point-30 feet  above the creek, below the Gold Hill  cabin:' If the company were deprived  of this dumping ground the claims on  whicli $100,000 had been spent, would  have, to be abandoned.  It wtis-on this hist statement that  the cross-examination by-Mr. While  tiatui-aliy- hinged. Witness admitted  that he had never taken any';elevations along the south lino of tho Gold  Hill and the values-were pretty evenly  distributed all over the Gold Kill and  Nugget claims. He was not' aware  that the Nugget and Bahamas fraction  were purchased for clumping ground.  He was not in a position to swear that,  it was not possible to work the gravel  up stream. There were surface indica-.  tions oE one back channel between Lhe  Gold Hill tunnel nnd the hose of the  mountain. The outlet of the assumed I  course of this supposed channel;was  through the Nugget claim, and if the  surface depressions really indicated  .such-a channel, it-might*-have������been-atone time the bed of the creek and he  htul concluded atone time that it was  probable th.it it was- In his opinion  there was. more workable ground  on ,the north of the Gold Hill  tunnel than south. He had not prospected the ground north of the tunnel,  hut had prospected south of it al the  upper drift 25 or 30 feel away and al  Hennessey's cut 2,000 feet away. The  indications of gold at these points  compared favorably with those*" found  iu the Gold SI ill tunnel. The giouud  between lli-iinessey's cut and tile  tunnel was workable ground in his  opinion.  ll is obvious without the iiieiin~ of  levels, that that portion of the properly lyim; between the Gold Hill tunnel  aud Ihe point where the ridge of bed  rock drops olf al the creek froul.a  little north of Hennessey's cabin, approximately, can Im; worked in a manner similar to the nper-itions which tire  to be commenced at the mouth of the  tunnel. In regard to that portion of  the property lying south of a line from  this point and running N. \V. towards  Lhe base of the mountain, it must be  thoroughly investigated before il is  decided that it can be worked. Had  investigated this portion of the company's property with a view to determining the bi!St means of working it  and came to the conclusion that the  information to be gained from surface  indications whs so very me.-igit*. that  it would require -considerable expenditure of money and time lo establish tin* necessary information whether  01 not this part of the properly could  be worked. If a flume was bi ought  down the back channel-it could not In*  u.-i-d to hychanlic the south part of the  company's property to have a commercial value on amount of the small  scope of the operations. Ic would not  be practical under tbe conditions to  bring a pipe from the pentstock alontr  the bench within twenty feet of the  edge of the bench to a point south west  THE WAR SCARE.:;.:-'  PREPARATIONS FOR''CONFLICT"'  IN SPAIN AND THE ���������STATES:-'-'  Capture   of an   American   Schoonen-Off:  the Coast of Spain.���������The British NavT" '  '- .    *.       * i -,    >.- -i ,*..  . .-���������--.  to Receive a Large I ncrease.-^-A ���������Poet-'  Killed  in a   Due!.���������The '.Wcst^E'igin ���������  Recount    Returns   a   Liberal' by - the  Casting Vote of the Returning Officer  ���������Distribution of the   Klondike Trade.-  (Special to thu Hkrald*)*;  .

MARCH   9.      1S9S.  TO HIS GOVERNMENT POSITION  AS LIEUT. GOVERNOR  LIBERALS  STILL   INCREASE  THE TURN OF THE TIDE  A Liberal government has been  in power in Ontario tor more than I  a  quarter of  a  century, during I  which time  no   opportunity  lias  ever been lost of dispensing public  patronage in such'a manner as to  entrench themselves more ninily  in  power.      During   tho    recent  elections they had   the' valuable  assistance    of    a   vast  army  of  officials   who,   besides   forming a  large vote among themselves, were  by virtue of their positions able  to control the votes oi   a  much  larger   number   of  others.     Nor  were the government allowed to  depend on their own resources in  the struggle which has just now  closed.   They had at their disposal  the. powerful   assistance  of   the  Liberal  cabinet, jointly and   individually.     Tho Ilouse of Commons at Ottawa, was  adjourned  for a week on the motion of the  Premier so that  every available  Liberal member might return to  his constituency and throw iu his  influence in favor,of the government.   There are in all 91 seats in  the   Ontario    house;   26  only  of  which were represented in the last  Legislature     by '���������_. Conservatives.  Yet in spite of the apparent favorable circumstances,   the   Liberal  government has emerged from the  contest, demoralized and practically    defeated.      Some    of   the  eastern  papers   claim   that   the  Conservatives even  now have a  numerical majority, but whether  this be so or not, they have gained  so many seats that it will'be impossible for Premier Hardy to run  the province for any appreciable  length of time.  ----^TheGlobe.-inspired no-doubtby-  its knowledge of the size of the  bar'l   and of the  other powerful  influences    which'    were     being  brought to bear   by the Federal  and   Local   governments  ou   the  minds of the   electors was  more  that   usually  Falstaffian    iu   its  method of conductingthe|campaign  Each day its news coluruus were  headed by an alliterative legend of  which Mr* Whitney's forthcoming  annihilation was the theme.   One  of its war cries, however, it must  be admitted,was true in _mbstauce  and in fact.   "Wait for Whitney's  Waterloo,"  said  the  Globe, and  those who have waited have not  l>een disappointed, as Mr. Whitney  has been credited not only with  one but both Waterloos. Ottawa,  where the policy of the Federal  government is most immediately  felt   returned   one  Conservative,  the Conservatives now hold about  half the seats in the Legislature.  The causes of  the   changes  in  Ontario   are    not   far   to   seek.  The contest was given a Federal  significance   and   was  fought  on  Federal   issues.,,   The   people   of  Ontario  are  disgusted  with  the  shameless extravagance and   disregard   of    the    welfare   of   the  country,   shewn  by   the   Liberal  cabinet since its accession to office.  If there were no other reason, the  Mann and McKenzie deal would be  in itself sufficient to cause disaster  to Mr. Hardy.   It is no exaggeration   to   say that it is more than  sufficient      to     overthrow      Sir  Wilfrid himself, unless   he  pays  some heed to public opinion.   The  sudden   wave   of  public  opinion  which   placed   him*  in    office  is  strong enough to hurl him from the  rock of jjpwer into the cold water3  of opposition..

THE RAILWAY RATE AVAR  New York, March 2.���������At the trunk  line passenger committee meeting yes-  FREE LANCE SAYINGS  According to local correspondence  in the "Calgary Herald," the venerable town of Olds ou the C. to E. has  just discovered that it is the most  favorable starting and outlining point  fot the Jilondyke via the Edmonton  route. Wetaskiwin begs to take issue  in this matter. As a matter of fact,  Olds is not a popular starting point. Is  the Board of Trade at Olds not aware  that the route which starts from  Wetaskiwin via the Pipestono and  Millett Post Ollice has been endorsed  by Ogilive. Major Walsh and Colonel  Young? It is 11 fact admitted by  all explore.!s and old-timers that by  starting from Wetaskiwin all you have  to do is to build a raft. Moat down the  Pipestone, hire Mr. Turner's billy-goat  and a train of dogs, and portage 1500  miles to the gold Held**. This 19 dead  easy, and we must resent any attempt  on the part of Olds to queen Wetaskiwin in this route business. Witness  what irreparable damage the Bulletin has done to the trade of Seattle  and oilier coast towns by its persistent  advocacv ol Edmonton as a starting  point. We don't wautadeal litcc that.  If Olds don't, look out, we'll publish a  map tind have Olds located in the bad  lands.  We wish sonic Klondyker woultl  come along and huy up all the town  dogs and take them beyond the 'OUth  parallel. The Esquimaux up there,  who believe that they are descended  from dogs, would be apt to feel very  much ashamed of their ancestors when  they beheld some of our Wetaskiwin  barkers. Time was when tho Greeks  and the Romans were wont to sacrifice  dogs to certain of their deities, and  failing the Klondyker, it might not be  a had plan to revive this custom here.  We might be. shy a few deities, but we  would not allow that to interfere with  the sacrifice. One of the most terrible,  features of early morning life in this  town is the gathering of the canine  clan's at -1 a.m. for the diabolical purpose, of harking " Put me olf at  Buffalo-o-o-o !"

An Ottawa despatch, dated .March I,  to the Winnipeg Tribune says: Hon.  Joseph Martin is still here, hut expects  to go west tomorrow. lie told me  politics were much mixed in British  Columbia. He does not. appear to  haye any intention of entering into  politics there. It is notunlikely, however, that he will loom up on tho political horizon somewhere  before   long.  The fact that Mackenzie is here, and  Mann is on the way, gives rise to a  rumor that there is some hitch in the  Vukon railway deal. It is impossible  to procure definite information. There  seems to be a settled determination on  the part of the senate to throw the  bill out, as members are loud in their  protest against the contract on the  ground that Lhe land grant is too  arge.  C. P. Jt. land sales for February  amounted to 21,000 acres.  The Grand Trunk has issued a  statement to the effect that their  company had done more towards  building up Ontario nnd Quebec than  the C.P.K., and that the C.P.It. had  built up the Canadian North West-,  at the expense of the older provinces  bv inducing immigration there, thus  reducing the population and land  population .and land values of Ontario  and Quebec. When shown to a Canadian Pacific official he pointed out the  utter absurdity of this contention by  quoting from a Grand Trunk tolder,  which advises intending Klondykers  that supplies can be best purchased "at  Pacific Coast points, Seattle, Victoria,  etc., where the merchants are accustomed to put up just what is required.  " That is building up Eastern Canada  with a vengeance,"he asserted,'���������telling  people to buy goods in Seattle instead  of in Montreal and Toronto."  A sensatiorThas been caused in the  Theatre Royal, Montreal, hy the  wholesale arrest of the "Black Crook,"'  burlesque company on the '.���������harge of  giving an indecent performance.

Winnipeg hot������*l men have ente-reel  into an agreement to, adhere strictly  to the hours prescribed by the Liquor  License law, and have even established  a system of espionage to see that they  all"live* up to their words.

A Canadian I'acilic freight train ran  into the rear of another thr.-e miles  east of Smith's Falls, Ont.. on Monday  night. Engineer Charles Sims and  fireman William Wilson of the rear  train were killed. The wreck took fire  after the collision and several cars  wero destroyed. The accident was  caused by the lirst train stopping lo  pick up some cars which had broken  nwav, in a curve which hid it from  the sight of the second train.  Commissioner McCreary, of the  immigration department, is arranging  for the Welsh families in Manitoba  and Territories to meet Mr. Davies,  the special commissioner from Wales,  representing many of the leading  newspapers, this week. The object is  to inform this gentleman of the success whicli has attended t.he Wel*-h  settlers, iu the Canadian west. As  Mr. Davies goes through t.he west, the  Dominion agents will met him at the  chief centres and arrange tours to the  Welsh settlements.  li. F. Stephenson, inspector of  Dominion Crown lands and timber  agencies, who has just returned from  an extended trip to the west, states  thnt it is the intention of the Government, to reserve till the timber on tbe  foothills of the Rockies, extending  along the: international boundary line  for several hundred miles. Reserves  will nlso be made in the Cypress,  Beaver anil 'Touchwood hills. He  reports the timber industry t> be  flourishing in British Columbia and  the prospects are good for this season.

Forgery Trial to Come���������Verdict in tit*  Note Cut Was a Surprise to Everybody���������Tha Baronet's IVIfo Settles Willi  ~-Ioney-"~.emler Jay and Gets Possession  of tho Notes.  (Special Correspondence.)  London.���������(Special.)���������What i.s to hoconic  of Lady Sykcs? This is the question which  Is ngltotlng London clubdom, and threaten*) to become moro talked about lu thn  near future than anything else now In  sight. Tho courts scum determined to  probo the case to tho bottom, and society will probably sco Jessica, Ltuly Sykcs,  tho wlfo of Sir Tutton Sykes, the rlolio-Jl  ond most prominont baronet in Yorkshire,  arraigned as a common forger. Ono day  tho papers report that Lady Sykcs has tied  tho countiy, beyond roach of extradition.  The next day this is denied by her solicitors, who declare that sho is still in town  nnd ready to stand trial.  . Tho public oshibits outwardly merely  the intorost of   curiosity,   hut   if there is  BIR   TAITON   SYKES".  nny sympathy, however, it must bo for  Ijtidy Sykes. According to tlio finding of  the jury in the suit of tho money shark,  David Jay. against Sir Tatton and his  wife, tho latter is a self-confessed * forger,  but the evidence on which the verdict  wns bused wus of the most doubtful character.  Briefly, the action just tried came about  in this way: rfir Tatton and Lady Sykes  nre known as heavy borrowers. David  Jay, a money-lender, brought suit some  time ago ro recover ������13,-100 on livo  promissory notes, signed by the baronet  and tho latter's wife. Theso notes boro  interest at CO per cont. The claim was  * not disputed hy Lady Sykcs. but Sir Tatton fought the caso, alleging his signature was forged. Lady Sykes deposed that  the signature of tho baronet was genuine  nnd that lie had signed the notes in her  presence. Tho testimony of the experts on  handwriting clashed, but the jury found  that the signature was a forgery, und the  suit of .Tay was dismissed.   .  Matters are not to end there, it seems.  Lady Sykes is placed in tho position of a  forger hy this verdict, and must he tried.  It is said that tho day after the trial Jay's  claims were paid hy friends of Lady Sykes  and tho incriminating notosthus secured.  Lady Sykcs is a dashing woman,'43  years old. She is fond of society, frequents  the races, and bets largely on them, and  also gambles in stocks. She is a relative  of the Dtiko of Portland and a daughter  of Rfc. lion. George Augustus Cavendish  Bentwick. Lady Sykcs has considerublo  income of her own,, biit her oxtrnvaganco  and betting proclivities have kept her  constnntly.in debt.. ^H _the c-tpcnso.of  ���������keeping up tho social position of tho family fell upon her. Her husband declined  to face nil such obligations, even refusing  the money to furnish tho houses in Yorkshire and Grosvenor square.  Sir Tatton is tho opposite of Lady  Sykes in every way. Ho is a rather do-  cayod-looking specimen of nobility, bald-  headed, short-sighted, pale, and wearing  .thin mutton-chop whisker. His chin is  retreating and his manner nervous and  undecided. Ho is 71 years of ago nnd was,  married to Lady Sykes twenty-llvo years  ago. Parsimony is his chlof characteristic.  lie is enormously wealthy unci has an in-  como of $400,000* n year. So stingy is he  that lie overdrew a London hank urcount  *C~!0,0uO and paid heavy interest rathor  than provide funds to get riel of tho debt.  Nominally  Lady   Sykcs'   allowance  has  LADY SYKKS.  been ������1,000, but ho has stopped this continually under one pretext or another.  Indeed, soino years ago sho wtis driven to  suo for pin money. Sho has insured her  life for largo sums ami borrowed money  from insuranco oflice.*].  Sir Tatton and Lady Sykcs have never  appeared togother in public except at  races; they never attend parties or dine  out .togcthor, and sinco April last havo  been living apart.  Tho testimony nt t.ho trial disclosed a  curious btuto of affairs.  "l)o yeiu mean to say you'nover had  your thousand a year?" asked Lord Russell.  "He was always stopping lt, and wroto  to tho bank to stop!'. I had to (tie TiUn,"  answered Lady Sykcs.  "And nil this time you were on friendly tormsf"  "Yes; I have nover quarreled with him  in niy life. Although people may bo odd  about their money matters, you don't  quarrel with them. Wo spoko to each  other in tho most friendly way yesterday.  (Laughter.) I said I hoped he was better,  anil that I thought ho had hotter wear a  great coat If ho canio into court, because  of tho draughts." (Loud laughter.)  It appears that all of Lady Sykes' stock  transactions were entered into with tho  consent of tho baronet. He (.approved of  her hutting on the turf when sho won,  and was In tho habit uf borrowing from  hor winnings.  It was claimed during the trial that, Sir  Tatton had entered Into nn agreement  with Lady Sykes whoreby ho was to lend  his signnluruto her on the understand!nu  that sho wus to secure; lho money and  tint lnvolvo him in responsibility. Thin  was lo avoid supplying hor with funds.  Thu tilul disclose'd a ludicrous ignurunco  of the simplest business tr.iii_-ar.tions on  thu part, of Sir Tatton Sykes. His sanity  is tiuustionod, unil ho at least shows a  childlike simplicity, in iiilililion to his  peiuiriousness. Ho was unablo to identify  Ills own signature iiijiutinei'ous instances,  ami it was demuiistrutud that ho i.s in tho  habit of repudiating notes. Ho swore positively that ho had never in his life signed  a promissory note, hut it wits proved to  thu contrary.  Lady Sykus further testified that sho  did not bulievo that hor husband realized  what forgery meant, or that it is u gravo  crime. Sir Tatton nover accused her of  forgery, but often repudiated documents.  As to tho last burrowing transaction,  Lady Sykes said:  "I went to see Sir Georgo Lewis about!  tho matter not being carried through,  and ho said: 'What do you think? ' Sir  Tatton has denied his signature.' _.I went  straight homo to Sir Tatton und snid:  'You must bo mad.' I did not mean really  mad, but it was tho sort of thing ono  %-iys."  The trial was a notable affair, for it is  not every day that a near relatlvo of tho  Duke ot Portland, the wealthiest nnd one  of tho most aristocratic nobles of England, is a defendant in a caso involving  forgery. Tho "proceedings wero had before  tho Lord Chief Justice Huron Russell. Sir  IO. Clarke appoarod for Sir Tatton Sykes.  In his address to tho jury, Clarke intimated clearly that Lady Syko3 is guilty of  forgery.  FIGHTING   ISLAND.  NEVADA'S BAD MEN.  Chicago   Sports   15uy' a.   l'leco of  Canada  mid Hope for Sportini: Immunity  Tor  Their Schemes.  A syndicate of Chicago men, headed hy  Michuol C. McDonald, has purchased  Fighting Island, in tho "'droit River,  eight miles from Detroit, near the Cuna-  cllun iicle, for between $1,300,000 and *2,-  000,000, with tho purpose, it is said, of  transforming tho 2,500 acres of the beautiful islo into tl place for pleasure seokors  that will vio with tho celebrated gambling resort Monte Curio. Georgo Uobic of  Detroit, owner ot the island, hns just  complotetl tho deal whereby he transfers  tho property to Mr. McDonald and others.  righting Islund, othorwiso known by  the euphonious Indian appellation ]_>os-  Chroo-Shos-Ku, is u beautiful spot in tho  Detroit River, near the Canadian shore.  For tho reason that it is ' a part of tho  Dominion it is said that tho   parties   in-  -~-JTU~~I~ CANADIAN MONTH CAKI.O.  terested in developing it feel more san-  guino of making it a placo for all kinds  ot sports than if it wero a part of tho  United States, as thoy think'that there is  more latitude allowed in tho conduct of  racing ami pri/.o fighting ovents than  bclow-tho-souchcrn-bordpr-r-Wich'thb-sys--  tem of steamboats tho syndicate is said to  bo contemplating, which will run to the  Island from Detroit and Windsor every  forty minutes, and tho electric line on  tho Canadian sido up from Windsor, tho  island will bo easily acccssiblo to' residents  ot Detroit, and sporting men and ploasuro  seekers from Chicago, Buffalo, Toledo  and Cleveland can easily muko it their  rendezvous.  Jt is nlso proposed to plot the property  and make It s-ultablo for summer i-esi-  disnces. A casino and hotel havo existed  fur some time on thu island, and othor  buildings will bo erected for the uccom*  nieiilatiou of patrons of the company.  Many vineyards are un the land, anti  there are also deposits of salt and nxln  us]], lt i.s thought that there is natural  gus to bu procured there, as I horo are ox  tensive wells ut Windsor, which uro largo  enough to supply tho needs of Detroit, a  city of about ~!Q5,U(>0 peoplo. A waterworks syrtcin has also been established.  With a fruitful soil and tho natural pus,  suit and soda, it i.s said the ~value of the  island will oventunlly he many millions.  Belle Isle, the great retreut of Detroit-  ers, has an area of but 700 acres, and  Fighting Island, with, it is claimed,  equally attractive features, comprises  moro than threo times that extent. Gro~sa  Isle, seventeen miles from Detroit, litis  long been a summer abiding place for  wealthy citizens of that city. Fighting  Island, but eight miles away, will, it is  argued, eventually becomo as desirable  for summer residences.  This is the biggest deal Chicago has"  seen for many a day. The investment of  Chicago capital in Canadian property is,  however, nothing now. Former Judgo  Waite of Chicago owns in -ho neighborhood of $100,000 worth of property in  Wintlsor, and is carrying on exton������ivo  building operations there* Tho Canadian  lako shore i.s licing developed by many  wealthy men. In Windsor there aro great  establishments nominally called Detroit  concerns. Among theso arc I). M. Ferry's  seed concern, Parke, Davis & Co.'s laboratory, and the Bruiiswick-Balke-Collender  Company's plant.  Opposite tho island Daniel Scotten, the  rich tobacco man,   is   niti-kinp   extensive  improvements with the ieiea of laying out  a  city on   tho, same   pl.an   thett  Hiram  Walker had   when   ho   built Wulkcrville,  north of Windsor.    He   is constructing a  power plant, hotel anil numerous houses.  On tlio south shore of the lake   there are  extensive salt deposits, which   aro   being  1 operated by several companies.    Salt   do-  i posits huvu heen found on tho island also.  Ami ns natural gas is found on the main  laud both north and south of   ths island,  ; it is reasonable to  suppose  that  it well!

An   Express Guard Who   Made a Becord  For Courage and Coolness���������The Sudden j  i    Taking Off of 8am  Brown, a Notorious  Desperado.  "Wild Bill was a desperado nnd a dan*  'porous one, although I must sny for him  that ho did his killing chlclly among bad  men. But nt Pioche, Xov., he submitted  to nrrestns peacefully ns n lamb when Eugene Blnir came for hlin. I forgut what  Bill lind been doing, but tho I'iocho peoplo  didn't want, him there, and Blair started  In tho stage with him for Carson City."  Colonel S. C. Dixon, a southwestern  niino owner, was telling of old Nevada  Snys nt nn up town hotel, and his subject  nt tho moment wns Eugene Blair, n guard  and messenger for the Wolls-Fargo Express company nt nn curly time.  "Tho prisoner wns handcuffed, of  course, nnd Blnir sat besltlu him in the  cuat.'h. It was generally thought that Bill's  friends would try to rescuo him somewhere on thu rond, which led Blair to say  to him:  " 'Bill, I'vo heard that your friends are  going to get you away from mo botween  hero and Carson if they can. Likely  enough they will, but it's fair to tell you  that it'll never do you uny good, for I  shall shoot you dead at tho lirst break thoy  iiiako. It's well to havo tho matter understood hutween us.'  " 'All riylit, Blair,' said Wild Bill in ������  cheerful way, but tho ofliccr's remark sot  him to thinking. As they como near Elko  ho grow uneasy. Piocho was not n comfortable or snfo town for Bill to be in nt  that time, bub before they got to tho station he asked Blair to tako him buck  llioro. <-  "'The fact is I've got friends at Elko,  and I'm afraid if wo go thero they'll put  up u move to rescue mo,' he said. 'If they  try it, I know you'll do just ns you said. I  think my chances aro butter to go back  than go ahead.'  "But word got to the friends somehow  of what would happen if thoy interfered,  and Blair took his prisoner to Carson with  no trouble.  "Eugoiio Blair was from tho state of  Maine and came to Nevada among tho  pioneors. He was vory tall; long limbed  nud muscular, quick of motion, ready and  perfectly bravo. His killing of Bill Davis,  the stngo robber, was an exploit that showed his wonderful courage and readiness.  Davis had bcon the loacior in tho great  Birdseyo robbeiy, in which a Central Pacific truin was stopped between Reno and  Tahoo and n big haul made by tho bandits.  Davis was captured nnd tried for this, but  by roToaling whoro $50,000 of the plunder  was hidden ho got oft with a year or two  in the penitentiary. Ho took to the rond  again after his release, and one night, ns  the stage rattled along between Pioche and  Elko, with Blair sitting on tlio box beside  tho driver, Bill Davis, with a confederate,  appeared at the roadside and drew down a  Bhotgun on the messenger.  - " 'Hands up, Blair!' he called. 'I've got  you!'  "There was no time for Blair to uso a  weapon, but ho rolled off the coach to tho  ground on the farther side beforo tho robber could fire. Ho dashed round tho rear  of tho coach to Davis, wrested the shotgun  from tho robber's bands and shot him deud  with his own weapon. Tho other robbor  ran, and Blair chased him four hours  througii tho sagobrush, capturing him at  last. You can judgo by this what kind of  man Blair was, and his killing of Davis  was only ono of many deadly shooting affairs he bad in discharge of his duty. Ho  killed so many men on tho Wells-Fargo  lines and upset so many schemes of robbery that it seemed certain, sooner or  Inter, that ho would he killed in revenge.  To savo bis life the express company retired him with a pension, and ho settled in  Pioche. After his long career of danger  or tho rond he lived quietly at Piocho to  die ut last from injuries received through  his being run over by a load of wood.  ���������'By thu way, I have heard the story of  the killing of the desperado, Sam Brown,  .from tho.lips.of Van Sickle, tho.ranchman  ' who shot him.   You know perhaps what a  terror Brown was in the early history of  Nevada. He was naturally bad. Murder  was u pastime, and to disembowel a man  in n barroom was part of a pleasant evening's entertainment to Long Haired  Brown. There was no law in thoso days,  nnd a man like lie could run his courso a  long time without punishment. Brown  was one of a gang who operated along tho  main trail hutween Carson City and the  Utah lino robbing emigrants coming overland to California. Van Sickle's ranch, 12  miles below Carson, was n sort of way stn-  tion or hotel for travelers. Brown thought  thu iiiiicliir.au hud ill used him in some  transaction nnd ho let his feelings bo  known, so when ho rodo up to Van Sickle's  lionet! onu nftcrnoon the ownor thought lt  prudent to hail him from tho doorway and  ask what ho wanted.  " 'I want you!' growled Sam Brown in  n tono thnt mndo Van Sickle turn back  into tho houso in a hurry. Brown sout a  hhot after him as he went through the  doorway und then dismounted, tied his  hor.-o to a post and went into the house to  find the ranchman. He got as far ub tho  diniDg room, aud, not finding Van Sickle,  enmo buck, stoppod for a drink at a little  sido room that served as opbnr nnd then  went out to his horse, mounted him and  rodo on in thu direction of Lute Old's  ranch, eight miles away. Aftor ho was  gono Van Sickle appeared with his rifle.  " 'You must kill Brown today, or he'll  kill you,' said Jake Moore, Van Sicklo's  clerk.  "'I guess that's bo,' BaidVan Sicklo  and sent word to his neighbors. In a  short time a party was organized and started in pursuit of Brown, four or five men  riding in a vragon^and Van Sickle and two  others on horseback. Four miles out they  camo in sight of Brown just as dusk was  falling. Ho turned, and Van Sicklo fired  nt him with his rifle, missing him. Brown  rode on, and they lost sight of him in the  darkness. Lute Old's ranch was a milo off  .the trail. Van Sicklo felt sure that Brown  would go there, and, with tbe othor two  mounted men, took a cross cut to the  ranch, hoping to eel* there before he did.  . He wns not there, nnd Lute Old said he  had not seen him. As thoy stood talking  in tho shadow of the barn somo one came  I  riding up in tho darkness and Lute said:  j. " 'That's Brown; I know by the jingle  Of his spurs.'  "IIo walked  over to the fenco to let  i down the bars, and as Brown rode into tho  yard Van Sickle with his rifle shot tho  desperado dead from his horso.  When Van  ,  Sickle told the story, he  showed me a six  1  shooter.  "'This was Sam Brown's,'ho said.   'It  !  was tho only thing of his  I took after I  ���������: killed him. I let the others that were with  tne Uke tbe rest.' "���������New York Sun.  An Awful State of Affairs That Called Tea  Kfiform.  Tho man was very rich.

Suddenly I.������ift Alone With an Angular Female Stranger In a Dark Room He Was  Threatened With Bodily Harm���������An J~m-  barrasilog Predicament and Its Sequel.  A young Clevoland man claims to havo  beun placed in a vory embarrassing protllc-  nment reeontly. He says ho was calling  on a certain young lady who rosldes In a  fashlon.'iblo down town apartmont house,  and as she happonod to havo gone out with  fun* mother, but was axpectod to return  shortly, ho snid ho would wait In their  parlor. Thu servant ushorod him In, and  ho was surprised to find that another cull-  lr was also waiting. It was a lady caller,  li tall, somowhat angular porson of questionable) age, with white gloves and a very  largo black hat.  Left alone with this lndy, tho young mnn  felt a littlo uneasy, ne hadn't contracted  for n silent tete-a-tete with n lone femnlo  In a strango house. For a timo lie sat  stiflly quiet. Then, as the siloncogrow oppressive ho arose and busied himself Inspecting tho pictures and bric-a-brac. Ai  ho moved along one side of the apartment,  koeping at n safe distance from tho btran-  gor in the big hat, ho happened to approach  the electric button that controlled tho light  in tho room. - He had his eyes glued to a  water color hanging on the wall close by,  when, to his amazement, tho lights suddenly went out, leaving tho apartment in  total darkness.  Of cour.so it wns owing to an acoident  at tho power house, but tho young man  didn't know that and- naturally expected  tho lights would immediately flash up  again.  An instant aftor the eolipso sot in thero  wns a sharp gasp from tho direction of the  lady with tho big hat.  "You���������you did that n-purposc," sho  shrilly remarked. "I saw you standing by  tho button."  Tho young man wiped the perspiration  from his brow.  "I assure you, madam," ho said, "that  I had nothing to do with it. It must bo  some���������somo lapso in tho current or something."  "You did it," continuod the shrill voice,  "because you wanted to'kiss mo."  "No, no, madam I" cried tho young man.  "No, nol I wouldn't kiss you. for the  world."  Then, in his desiro to escape, he started  for the supposed location of tho door.  '.'Don't move," cried tho lady, "or I'll  scream." '  Ho halted for a moment, then softly  crept along tho wall again.  "I hear you," cried tho lady. "Don't  you dare to come near mo."  "Madam," said tho exasperated youth,  "nobody wants  to harm a hair of your'  head."  "That's just what tho burglar said the  night our houso was robbed," moaned the  lady.  "But I must find tho door," said the  youth. "Wo can't stay in hero indefinitely  in tho dark."  "I should think not," snapped the lady.  "But don't you dare to come this way. If  you do, I'll stab your face with a hatpin!  And don't you think you can fool jno. I  hear your miserablo squeaky shoes every  step you take."  , ."PorFaps," said tho youth, for his sonso  of humor was beginning to return, "it  would bo well to take thorn off." -  "Mercy, nn!" cried the lady. "Don't  you daro to."  Then tho youth felt his way forward,  guidod as to tho lady's location by sundry  sniffs nnd starts of alarm, and after he had  run squarely into tho mantel and banged  ngainst a scroen nnd tumblod over a footstool and several chairs, he finally found  the doorknob and bounced into tho hall.  It was pitch dark, but almost immediately  he saw a servant coming up tbe stairs with  a lump.  "Show me tho way out of this," said the  youth, and tho sorvant escorted him to the  front door. As ho stopped on to the sidewalk he drew a long and refreshing breath.  -���������Cleveland Plain Dealer.  At the Fancy Dress Balk      V.'/V  She���������You won't be long?

Tbe impressive service of Lite Anglican cliurcli  was followed willi great all ent ion and  interest by a large congregation. At  evensong the church was ciowelt-d.

The petition for Len thousand dollais  to build ii wagon road up the north of  Lhe Lardeau shews a commendable  rise* to the situation from the pitiful  sum of .S3,'G00, which the people of  Trout Lake set down at first as adequate fo meet the rei|iiiremi'nls of  their district. Whun one considers  the position of West, KooLet ay in the  revenue relurns of the province, the  little dribs and drabs of $200 here and  .$300 there, hitherto expended on the  tle.'velopiiiL'iit of the cli.sLi'ict. look perfectly ludicrous. If is no mere local  patriotism or sectional feeling prompts  this assertion. "West Kootenny litis  proved conclusively that the business  policy of the province .-is ;i whole is to  urge forward thu development of West  ICooten iv. This district asks for more  money in order to he placed in position  still further 'to swell the provii.cial  revenue.  But apart from this consideration  the expenditure of money in small  sum.-in I hese mountains is a ruinously expensive; anil poor busines.s polity.
