On this, the north-webt extension of  of the above claim, a tunnel '.Ul) feet  lower in elevation than tlie Silver Cup  tunnel, and ahoiit 1000 feet further to  the north-west, has been driven  for 200 feet south-east, in which, for 50  or more feet, ore six to 10 inches wide  hns heen followed in driving the tunnel through which, 15 to 20 tons of  clean ore or galena with coarsely  crystaline iron pyrites, hnd .lieen extracted together with a considerable  pile of concentrating ore. The new  superintendent, Mr. IX G. McNeil,' had  suspended work on thu tunnel,  TOWSER.  On tins claim, lying north-west of  Sunshine, a 40 foot tunnel had been  driven, without success, to cut the  vein, hut it was believed that an ont-  crop-pf quartz found on the line of  the vein was the vein itself, anti work  was heing started to exploit this part  of the vein hy open cuts  FIIEE COINAGE.  This claim. 1500x1500. owned hy  Thos. Dunn and Wm. Fan-ell. "Vancouver, lying south-east and farther  up the basin from the Silver Gup, had  a small shaft sunk 12 feet on a small  vein of quartz-slightly mineralized,  thought. Ui he the-No.,2 vein in the  Silver Cup tunnel, and to exploit this  claim Mr. Munroe had begun a tunnel  along this vein nnd then cross cut in  search of the Silver Cup vein.  In this locality'the_ slates or shales  below the surface are very black and  carbonaceous, and <are very evenly,  bedded, except along the course of the  veins, where they are considerably  twisted and contorted.  Other Claims.���������Many claims have  been located in proximity to this group  of claims, and also ,.-us extensions, but  as far-as could he ascertained very  little or no wiirk.had been done..  . '-,..,,' '" ��������� ALPHA���������GK.-ITP. -'. ��������� ���������*.*-  This group/otherwise known as the  Great Northern group, lies a tan elevation of. 5,500 to 0.000 feet along the  ridge of mountains between the'Lardo  creek and the north fork of this creek,  or about thi'ee.iniles west of Ferguson,  or eight miles north-west of the Silver  Cup. By road and trail it is seven  miles from Trout Lake City, arid hy  the new trail about five miles from  Ferguson. Along the course of this  lead have heen located, among others,  the Butte. Phillipsburg, Old Sonoma,  Broadview. Hillside and Great Northern, True Fissure, Silver Queen, etc.,  and this lead is distinguished by its  greafwidtiritf milky-wHite quarfzTn"  which, as' will be detailed, work is in  progress in search of bodies of galena  ore which is here ! not of so high grade  in silver, or probably 30 to 40 ounces  per ton.  BROADVIEW.  The Lillooet. Fraser River and Cariboo Gold Fields Co.. Limited, has secured the Broadview, Old Sonoma,  Phillipsburg, the f'-action.-d'claims the  Clipper, Skipper, and Skiff, and the  Alpha. Confederation, and the Colonist, and on the Broadview wns being,  in July, concentrated all development,  as here there runs throughout" the  claim, nearly conforming with the  strike and dip of the enclosing slates  and schistose sedimentary rocks, the  great thickness of white-weathering  quartz, for the most part only slightly  mineralized. Where exposed by stripping, on. the surface there are seen a  main band of quartz, 30 to 40 feet wide,  and then lesser bauds of quartz with  country rock between, and parts ot the  larger body, of quartz contains considerable sidfi-ite, near which, in some ol  the workings, are found both solid and  mixed ores, and in one of the tunnels  a narrow band of sidtrite, galena, and  blende had been followed. So far, the  limited workings had not penetrated  the vein beyond the point where surface agencies have been very potent,  as the ground was very much shattered, the sulphides were much decomposed, and the work had not time to  advance far enough to demonstrate  the characteristics of this large  quartz lead, or to show np the existence of ore other than that found in  the upper working.  In the shaft was found solid ore of  coarse cubed galena, with considerable  zinc blende and iron and copper pyrites; also as well as in some of the  other openings, a considerable, amount  of this mixed ore and quartz that  might be suitable for concentration,  while much honeycombed quartz, becoming, when undecomposed, quartz  impregnated with very coarse crystal  line iron pyrites, such material, it  tvas claimed, rarrying small gold values, lilsewbere. in .some of the tunnels, were being found narrow stringers, two tu 10 iuchev wide, of nearly  solid copper pyrites, and also small  stringers of solid iron pyrites assaying high in silver. Strike of vein,  west of north, east of south; dip  ���������15 to CO degrees easterly.  Shaft on summit; elevation,'about.  0.001) feet. Here the lead is .10 to 40  feet wiile of quartz, carrying a good  percentage of sideritc iind iron pyrites  which, on decomposition, has become  a very honey-combed smtery mass. A  shute or band, 20 to 30 inches wide, of  the solid galena-blende ore was here  found, and a shaft was sunk for 25 to  30 feet along this ore when the quartz  aiid pyrites came in, and continued to  the bottom, IIS feet down, and also in  a wide drift, run along the vein for 50  feet at the 50-foot level. No further  work is being done at tliis point, but,  from the pile of ore extracted while  sinking in this shute of galena ore,  clean ore tvas being sorted and sacked  for shipping.  ���������  Tunnels, (a) Fifty-font, level, nr 75  feet lower down the biliside than tbe  collar'of the shaft, and several hundred  feet northerly, rims southerly ISO feet,  passing for most of that .'-distance  schists and quartzose material, but  encountering a narrow band of mixed  galena ore, in which, at 135 feet, a  winze has been sunk 25 feet, this ore  being now piled in the tunnel.on ..-Inch  work has been slopped.  (b) Hundred-foot level, 100 feet billow tunnel (a), was originally run Jin  112 feet along very quartzose but barren slates and schists, and . through  much white valueless quartz ; hut Mr.  McGnire. on assuming charge, discontinued this work, and. going about 100  feet easterly, stripped tbe surface, exposing a wide hand of white quartz,  then parallel bands 4 to 0 feet wide,  with country rock intervening, and  along near the foot-wall of this large  band a tunnel was being driven, in 100  feet, July 21th. in badly "crushed  ground, having followed for some dis:  tonce ������i. stringer, 5 to"r8 inehes wide,-of  nearly, pure copper pyrites.', . * 1',''  ' (c). Two hundred-foot level was just  being started-near the foot-tvall side  of a large' exposure,of barren white  quartz.  (d) - Three, hundred-foot lunnel,  probably 1,000 feet north of the shaft  and 400 feet lower-in elevation.' At  the beginning of this work considerable mixed ore of low grade tvas found  in the open cut; then the tunnel was  run 00 feet south-east in white quartz  and spathic, iron, but with no ore, so  Mr. McGnire came back to near the  entrance, and is running south 15~ east  &5.feet, July 21th, along a smooth wall  THE YUKON BILL REJECTED  Mackenzie & Mann   Contract" Rejected  By the Senate.  Ottawa. March :>J.��������� The Senate Infill overwhelming majority has rejected the Yukon lailwny bill aiul tbe  government must set about securing  a  new  Yukon   transportation   policy.  The scene in tbe upper house tonight  will long he remembered. The galleries were crowded, while the space  beyond the bar was taken up by members of the Commons, who were there  ii*. full force, as the lower house had  adjourned early.  Hon. David Mills closed the debate  ar.d certainly made the best presentment of the government's case hoard  in either house. He said that if the  government bill tvas accepted tho government were prepared to build a  wagon road from some Pacific, coast  point, and if the countiy was developed to continue the railway through  'to the coast. He atTirnied that -Mack-,  enzie to Matin have spent half  a million dollars in' arranging,-for  the construction of the line. In con->  elusion he warned the Senate of.'the,  responsibility which would rest 011 it  if the bill was rejected.  The warning, however.- had no effect  as the -six months' hoist being carried  by a vote of 52 to 11. a majority much  larger than expected. ' ���������   -  ' Only 'one Conservative voted with  the government, but Sir Frank Smith'  tvfis paired for the bill. Two Liberals,  O'Donoghue and Boulton. voted  against the government.'

So  Regarded  -By McKinley.- ..'..������������������  CANNOT BE AVERTED NOW  in white quartz following a small leader of ore.  Hence not much or no pay ore has  yet been discovered on this claim, as  the silver values are toolotivand while  development work had only begun  there were all the evidences of a very  strong lead, of which the ore-bearing  possibilities might, prove good, but all  work was stopped last summer and  nothing further is being done on these  claims.  Transport.���������By the new trail 200 tons  were to have been hauled out to the  company's depot on the main wagon  riiad near Ferguson, and thence shipped by wagon to the strainer lauding  at Thomson's I-anding. If the property were developed, and a suflicient  amount, of concentrating ore found, an  aerial tramway might be run down to  the mill-side on Lardo creek above the  depot, near which passes the surveyed  line of the proposed railroad from  Arrow lake.  At the depot large and commodious  log cabins, stables, etc., had linen  erected from which supplies could be  sent to the properties here under control of the management. At the mine  suflicient cabins have also been erected. In Lardo creek is an ample supply  of water under a good head for milling  purposes.  Seed Time.

Sir Mackenzie will therefore, speak today  when in all probability a, division will  take, place. The bill is certain to be  thrown out notwithstanding the promises and threats which have been  made to the members of the Senate.  IN TUE COMMONS  In the Ilouse of Commons, a question was asked hy Gillies, JM.

THESUPERANNUA TION BILL  "Mr. Mulock's bill to ptoVide for  the abolition of the civil service  superannuation act and for the  retiiement ot members-of the  civil'service is a distinct improvement on the existing system of  superannuation which is not only  costly but ineffectual for the  purpose for whichit.was intended.  Tne question of effecting some  improvement has -been much  discussed of late and ��������� the conclusion which has generally been  arrived at is tbat'the present  ".system must be eitlier ended or  mended within the .near future.  Its theory was sound enough, but  .in practice it has proved useless.  :The expenditure on. account of  -superannuation last year amounted  Jto $308,000 while the total revenue  amounted    only  to 1. $59,000,   the  - difference being a net -loss to the  - country of nearly a -quarter of a  million dollars. Like the American  uension list, the superannuation  li-G is never stationary,  but con-  -.- stantly   on '. the   increase."    Tbe  ~ modern politician must find places  for his  supporters, whose  consti-  ,. tutons  become   strengthened  by  promotion to office.'   Some mem-  . tiers  of   the superannuated   class  have   been    receiving  an   allow-  snee for the past 25 years.  The change  suggested   by  Mr.  Mulock's   bill   will    be   generally  ' -commended. Some social economists go a good deal further than  Mr. Mulock, and believe' that the  - government should not be compelled at all to I00K after the old  age of its employees, who should  be,placed on no better footing  than other private citizens. As a  mle, civil servants are well paid,  --^-and-very-few-of-them-could���������do  better, if as well, if "they were  compelled to fight their own battle  for subsistence in the outside  world against all competition,  instead ot simply securing a place  in a department at a good salary  and short hours and receiving tbe  annual increase which the law  allows. They are on the whole  much better paid than the citizens  -whose taxes io to their support.  >Mr. MuIock's bill is a happy  mean between the . present objectionable condition and the  .total abolition of tbe ~uper-  annnation system. It creates what  might ������ be called a scheme nf  endowment insurance, in which  the payments become due to the  insured on his retirement ������������������ or  dismissal, or to his heir*: in the  event of bis death. The present  system is useful only in cases of  "the survival of the fittest." A  man may contribute for 20 yeors  to thesuDeraunuationfundnnd yet  forfeit all qlaim by dying in  harness as happened the other day  ih the case of Mr. A. M. Burge~rf.  Not a cent comes to his laroily,  although be had paid in probably  thousands of dollars. Under Mr.  Mulock's plan sucn a thing could  .not happen. By it, all permanent  officials contribute rive per cent of  their yearly salaries, and arc  allowed interest on the amount  paid in.at the rate of live per cent  compounded half yearly. This  forms what it is proposed to call a  "retirement fund" and the contributor is entitled to draw the  full amount and interest as stated,  on.his retireme.nt from any cause  fronr.ttie public service. Should  he die in tbe service tbe accumulated payment and interest go to  his-heirs. Present employees of  over 10 years' service are given the  option.of accepting the new plan  or .remaining with the-,old. It  would be only fair too, that Mr.  Mulock's plan should .be available  to officials of less than 10 years'  standing many if not all of whom  would prefer it.  Sir. 'Mulock's proposition is the  best and fairest that has yet been  made for the removal of the  abuses which condemn.the present  system and it is sincerely to be  hoped that it will meet with the  favorable consideration of  parliament.  said "If my hon. friend believes all  the silly yarns he sees in the newspapers, I'm sorry for him." Sir Chns.  Ilibbert Tupper remarked "That is no  answer." The Premier replied "That  is all the answer the question calls  for."  THE   ESTIMATES  The. main estimates for the year ending June 30l.Ii, ISO!), were laid on the  table of the Ilouse of Commons last  night, by lion. W. S. Fielding, Minister of Finance.

CHURCH    OF  Ituvoletoko  jirayor daily  for  tho  FATAL  RAILWAY   ACCIDENT  At English River���������Two   Persons Killed  and Seventeen Injured  A serious accident occurred about  eleven o'clock on Frid.-iv morning to  the second section of the west bound  express at a place called English river,  a short distance west of Fort William.  Soon after leaving Fort William  the equalizer on the the second passenger coach broke, and the car w.i.  sidetracked at the next siding. The  t ruin bail not proceeded more than  five miles when the passengers found  themselves being bumped along over  the lies at, a faM rati- around a sharp  curve. Three cars were thrown on  their sido and a fourth ran into the  ditch. Neither the enarino nor the  mail and ���������"\press oars left the track.  The accident was caused by the  eprending of the rails, and not by a  broken rail as elsewhere reported.  One person, Frank Mardian of Detroit, was instantly killed and another  C. XX'. Marks, also of Detroit, who  w.i.*. very si-tiously injured has since  died at Winnipeg. The following is  the list of the injured. W. .Merit). Toronto: M. Soflokv, New York: J. F.  Tavlor nnd son.

LOOKING l~OR TROUl'lLE  Washington, March 28.���������President  McKinley has expressed a hope that  war with Spain mav yet be averted.  The Spanish people are said to be  intensely excited,   and   demand  that  .war be "declared  at  once against  the  "United States.  THE AN'iLO-KUfiNX'lI situation  Lois-noN.Ma ich 28���������Heading between  the lines of recent ministerial statements it now seems pretty clear that  the "report referred to a couple of  weeks ago that England had yielded  to French pressure and tvas consenting  to submit the question of British rights  in Boussa to arbitration is altogether  incorrect. Tne Anglo-French situation is therefore believed to be neaaor  the stage of crisis than ever, and war  can only be averted by some kind of  surrender on the part of France. The  immediate question is whether M.  Hanotaux can afford to surrender any  French interests in the. lace of the  forthcoming general elections.

Colonel Horn's "Lcttui* to General Logan  Kxplaining an Attack on Grant ���������Shannon, His Assecl.-l.-, Was au Ambitious  Fried Chicken. Kater.  Mrs. John A. Logan once gave to a  newspaper reporter in this city a letter  from a southern editor that created i\  lot ot talk. It was immediately after  tbo death of General Grant. Tbo reporter had gouo to tbo Logan residences  to interview tho general about somo  matter then before congress. Tbe general was in bed, and the reporter tvas  shown to his room. Iu the course of the  evening "Mrs. Logan entered the bedchamber and took part in tho conversation. In her hand sho held a letter, tbe  contents of whioh hor husband knew  about. She wanted to givo it to tho reporter, but the goneral objected. But  as the newspaper man started to leave  Mrs, Logan slipped tbe euvelopo into  his hand. The next morning nearly  every newspaper iu tho country printed  a copy of it. It was a rare and racy  document.  . Colonel Alexander G. Horn of Meridian, Miss., thon the editor of Tho Daily  Mercury, was its author. Tho letter  was intended as an explanation of au  editorial tbat had appeared a few weeks  beforo ia Tbe Mercury. Colonel Horn  and J. J. Shannon were associates iu  tlio publication of the aforesaid journal.  On the morning following the death of  tho hero of Appomattox Tbo Mercury  contained one of tho most cruel articles  about Genoral Grant over printed by a  press.- It dared any true southerner to  grieve or show signs of sorrow over his  demise. It oalled upon tho peoplo of  Dixie laud to oxult and rejoice at tbe  death of tho mau who had slain their  sons and burned their homes. The poo-  ple of Meridian were astounded. They  went to the editor, Colonel - Horn, and  asked him, in tho name of ponce, to  writo another article withdrawing it.  Ho was obdurate and instead of doing  os bis neighbors wished dictated another ono equally as fierce as the first.  At tbat moment the namo of Colonel  Shannon was beforo tbe senate awaiting"  confirmation as postmaster at Meridian.  An enemy of his, knowing tbo love that  Genoral Logan had for General Grant,  inclosod copies of the paper to him, expecting that Logan would oppose Sban-  uou's nomination. Shannon and Horn  had a dispute over tbe editorial, and  their relations became so strained that  a strocfc duel w.is only averted by tbo  interference of mutual friends. Colonel  Horn's letter to Genoral Logan was to  tbo effect that Colonel Shannon was innocent of tho article and ,had known  nothing-about it until ho sawit in tbo  paper. I cannot quoto tho letter with  literal exactness, but a part of it was as  follows:  "No; Shannon had nothing to do  with it. In tho first place be hasn't  sense enough to conceive such a sentiment ns was expressed in tbo editorial  and if ho had ho would be too cowardly  to writo it. Ho is my partner, I am sorry to say, but by making hiin postmpster  you will afford mo the opportunity of  getting rid of him.  "And why not take him," John? There  is a mighty narrow strip between tbe  radioal republicanism that you represent and the Cleveland Mugwumpory  that Shannon trios to represent. He is  ____L~_JiQ-~D-Qcrat,_noy_er_-_-yas_and_no.ver_  will be. I predict that you will soou  have him over on your side, and God  speed the day! Wo Democrats down  hero don't waut him.  "I am growing old, but I am still in  possession of my mental faculties, and  I hope to live many years longer to tell  tho truth from day to day about tho  despised Yankees and their politics. I  am soriously afflicted with hemiplegia,  else I would havo mauled h������������������1 out of  Shannon long ago.  "Logan, you ought to remember me  is one of the fellows that figured somewhat conspicuously in the Kemper  county trials. I guess I can take tbe  credit to myself of having had tho Dem-'  ocrats who killed tho Radicals there  acquitted beforo tbe courts. I would  liko another job of tbe same kind.  "Yon and I ought to be friends. Opposite") beget liking. You have been a  broth of a boy in your party, and I have  been a shcol of a fellow in miuu."  General Logan roplied good natured-  ly to this epistlo,- after which a friendly correspondence -sprang up between  the erratic genius at Meridian and tho  souator. Logan read tbe Shannon letter  in tbo committee room of tho senate,  and then laughingly said tbat inasmuch  as his frieud Colonel Horn wanted  Shannon .confirmed he didn'lt see how  he could oppose him. Colonel Horn,  unreconstructed, has long since passed  into sileuce, and a few years later Colonel Shannon was buried at his old  homo in Paulding, Miss., a - town once  made famous by the publication of The  Weekly Clarion, ��������� many years ago, of  which paper hewas one of tbe founders.

"Eight!" spoke up Shannon. "Well,  you will have to do better tban tbat.  You may be the champion prizefighter,  but you will have to whet up tbat appetite of yours beforo you can 'take  away, the chicken eating championship.

DRUMMER'S   QUEER  STORY.  THE  LITTLE TITMOUSE.  One Fr<*e Bird That Attracts Attention  Among Hundreds of Captives.  In a big bird store where thore are  hundreds of birds of many kinds incessantly squawking, chirping and singing  thero is one that is free���������a tiny titmouse. Tho window is full of cages  containing birds of various sorts, and  ono side of the storo is lined with birdcages stacked up bigh all along. But  there is none that attracts so much attention as the little titmouse flitting  about, tbe store ut will. At night it  perches on a gas fixture in the window,  and to that it comes back from its various excursions by day. .  - Customers that como in to buy birds  and birdcages and bird seed and one  thing and another never fail to notice  tho titmouse. They may not notice another bird there individually, but their  attention is sure to be attracted by this  one as it darts about, free among so  many captives, and they are likely to  smile at it, they are so pleased with it.  ' And sometimes children, looking in at  tbo windows of tbe bird storo, come in  to tell tho clerk that one of the birds  has got loose.  When it has nothing else to do, tho  titmouse sits on its gas pipe peroh and  perks its bead this way and that and  looks about. Sometimes it whets its  beak on tho gas pipo. ' Every now and  then it dashes off somewhere.

But it  gets it, and when it has taken its fill it  flashes back to its perch on tbo pipe in  the window.  Tbe titmouse catches spiders and other  insects, aud  it feeds in  tho'larger  ^cages when it will. It goes in and out  of them between tho bars with perfect  ease. It is a very littlo bird, ovon with  its plumage in its natural form. With  its feathers pressed against its sides it  can got through a very narrow space-���������  between the bars of u parrot's cago7 for  example���������with easo. Thoro are. in the  window a number of parrots' cages in a  row. The-titmouse almost flies through  these cages, stopping in eaoh perhaps to  cat of the parrots' food, but thoy never  molest it. Parrots that would bite at  tbo finger of a man who should put his  baud near enough to tho outside of their  cage stand back In fright or sheer  amazement when tho littlo titmouse  dashes in and perches on thoir feed cup.  ���������New York Sun.

The invitation may  not  always  be accepted  at once, but  good will has been -  established. ��������� ���������  With what a feeling of ease and serenity one enters  the store or hotel that i.s advertised ; -he is welcome ; he has .  been invited to come.    With what confidence you inquire for  tm advertised article: the proprietor himself"believes in'it,  wants you to try it, is interested in your  getting  it.    This.-,  very good will, tliis appreciation of courtesy, this satisfaction-- ���������  in being pleasantly asked;-*has-been the foundation of many a  successful business. Vv ��������� ..    "'���������'.  Newspaper    advertising    is.  something    more   than- -  spending money in the newspapers.   , If properly done it is-  the  making  of acquaintanceship  and  friendship  that will  surely be of great, value in time to come. ���������'������������������������������������  Would  you  have your business  or your article so.,  favorably regarded ?

They made the trip ont from  Dawson without dogs, and were forty-  two days from Dawson to Dyea.  The string of people going in thnt  direction continues without nliute-  iiieiit. Something over fifteen thousand having passed through Seattle.  There are old men and young men,  robust looking fellows, and mother's  pets who have never performed any  harder manual labor than carrying in  an armful of wood.  Many of the latter class weaken  after reaching Sknguny and Dyea and  sell their outfits for .money enough to  get hack wilh and start for home.  One of these would-be miners from  Boston purchased a very fine outfit a  a few days ago. and also bought his  ticket, but by the time his steamer  tvas ready to sail he was offering his  entire outfit, ticket and all, i'or $00.  He remarked to your correspondent,  that sixty dollars would take him back  to Boston to his wife and there he  would stay.
