MINING AND GENERAL  Trout Lake a Miner's Paradise���������Mines  - -Opening ' Up all Through That  .District '  The fact that tenders are being  called for .the erection of ore and  boarding houses at the Ethel, indicate  that active operations will soon commence on that property.  The llevelstoke football team failed  to materialize on Saturday last, which  was keen disappointment to the many  who had been expecting tn see an  exciting match between ' the, rival  teams. A match between the "Senilis  and Profs, in ������ manner appended the  disappointment. It was a warm game  throughout and resulted in a draw.  ,1. M._Robinson, left recently for his  home in Peachland, Okanagan valley.  -The J. A. H. A. property situated  at the -head of Surprise Creek and  about 2,000 feet from the Molly Mack  has a wonderful showing. _ The ore is  principally copper asssaying 55 per  cent, copper, 4 ozs. silver and a truce  of gold.' The lead from which this  ore was taken "is about'8 feet ��������� wide  and evidently contains a body of the  above mineral, all that can be gone by  at present is the surface showing, as  the property was only, located a few  days ago. Some fine specimens of the  almost pure copper was left at the  Topic office.  The locators of- this property are  Geo. Yuill and Win. Flobeck.  Recent work on the I.X.L., a claim  situated near the head of Eight Mile  creek, and adjoining the Silver Cord  mineral claim is showing up splendidly  as the results of recent development  operations.  A tunnel of nine feet is in on the  vein and in the face, of it on the hanging wall is from 26 to 28 inches of  galena ore and on the footwall an 8  inch streak of carbonates. This  property is owned by Messrs. Johnson  und McCord.   -  The result of the plebiscite taken in  Trout Lake , and. .Ferguson - was far  from,satisfactory.". Out of. a 'total of  aiiout-,75.- votes only .30 voted, "the  result;: proved a_tie. In Ferguson  18 voted out pt list of abbut_ TO, the  poll standing Ave for and 13 against.  This looks bad considering 'the importance of the issue, and speaks' far  louder than words of the people's lack  of preparation.���������Topic.  KEEPER TORN BY LIONS  Lemen   Brothers' Lion  Tamer  Fatally  Wounded in the Cage  Butte, October 1.���������-Lemen Brothers'  circus has been here two days and has  given street parades each day. -When  the parade started > on Saturday  morning the regular lion tamer was  absent, and a man named Zeke Walters, hut whose real name is. Walter  Blunchard, known as the animal man,  took his place in the lion's cage. The  lions, three in nuinber. appeared to be  in bad humor on account of the cold  weather. Upon entering South Butte  the nninial8 became restless and paced  tip and down the cage in a menacing  manner, growling nnd in other ways  showing their displeasure. Two of the  lions jostled each other in passing, and  a conflict between the beasts seemed  imminent, when Walters cracked his  whip, the lash falling on the head of  one of the lions. With u roar  that could be heard for blocks, the  savage beast sprang at the kecper.and  in an instant Inter both brutes  had attacked him. The first lion  struck at him with his paws, inflicting  severe injuries and knocking Walters  down to the bottom of the cage. The  next instant the three brutes were  upou him,the baby joining in the mix-  up and the horrified spectators were  unable to sec the ni.in. The lions  could be seen, however, raining blow  after blow upon the prostrate man  with their great paws. With a superhuman effort Walters grabbed one of  the bars of the side nf the cage and  drew himself to his feet, at the same  time attempting to fight off the brutes.  Almost blinded hy tho torrent of  blood from the woundB on his head,  Walters made one last desperate  effort and painfully drugged himself  to the door at the rear of the cage.  Unfastening it he leaped to the street  and fell unconscious to the  ground. The door slammed shut  after him, thus preventing the escape  of the animals. Wallers' back is  terribly lacerated. She doctors say  he wiU die,  FOREST FIRES RAGING  j. .".      * '���������~*  Destfoyfiig Property and Playing Havoc  With k-rcrything That Comes in Its  Path���������Hundreds of Men Working  Dayahd Night Fighting the  Flames  ��������� ChipJ?_bwa Falls, October 1.���������Forest  fires iti. raging to an aluriniiig extent  in-tbis abet ion. Hundreds of farmers  are.;working night and day fighting  the flames.  ST.Pilul, Minn., October 1.���������A Rice  Liike .J'stiecial to the, Pioneer Press  says': *"��������������� Forest 'fires are doing great  diunagfe in this section. Sixteen farm  houses are * reported .to have been  burned; yesterday afternoon. The  wind wus blowing a pale and served  to fan the', flames. At Cedar1' Lake  fire destroyed considerable property  owned by the Knapp Stout Lumber  Company, ' and a portion of Cedar  take town of 600 inhabitants is reported destroyed. Alinenn Town, 300.  and Pottkin Town, 200, are said to have  been wiped out, but no loss of 'life is  reported; a-slight ruin began to fall  yesterday evening and it is believed  the firek will'be checked."  -PARTIALLY EXTINGUISHED  Milwaukee. Wis., October 1.���������  Reports received at the railroad office  in this city are to the effect that the  forest fires in the northern part of the  states,were quenched by a heavy fall  of rain last night. The heaviest "loss  was suffered at Cumberland, where 25  families, were rendered homeless by  the flames, and the large saw mill  plant.~va.1ued at $225,000, was wiped  out. ' Wires are down in nil directions  and particulars of the ruin wrought  have hot heen received, but aro expected to come in shortly. Only one  death, as far as known, has resulted,  that of .Mrs. Jacob Correson, of Dry-  wood. ' Two children of Mrs. Correson  were seaiously burned while attempting to rescue their mother.  ��������� The loss is not expected to reach  over $1,000,000.  -     A SAD SIGHT  St. Paul,-Minn'., Oct. 1.���������A Cum-  berlari'd,'-Wi's.V despatch to the-'Dcs-  patchsays:" "Cumberland presents''a  sad sight today. The mill portion' of  the country is a smouldering heap of  ruins.- The loss is'about $185,000. The  forest fires were swept, into, the city  from the southeast at about five  o'clock last night" by a tornado., The  air 'was filled with smoke and burning  cinders and the fire started on the east  and west sides of the town at about  the same time."  Trout Lake District  " There is a good deal of" actrviTy"in~  Trout Lake district, and very, satisfactory res_]ts are being obtained  from the development work now  proceeding," said a mining man from  that part of Kootenay to a Spokan  " Spokesman-Review" reporter.  " "In the Fish River district especially  are results satisfactory. A shaft is  being sunk in ore on the Beatrice  claim, a part of tho Bouchier group, on  Mohawk crock, a tributary of Pool  creek, and the ore being taken out ii  of high grade. T understand a contract has recently been let to deliver  'the ore on tho dump at Thompson's  Landing, from which point it will go  forward for smelting.  At the Glengarry and Prince Edward, on Boyd creek, a tributary of  Fish River, development work is  being prosecuted energetically with  the result that a good body of ore has  been shown up. '    The Ethel claim, on Glacier 'mountain, close to Trout Lake City, is  looking well. Recently a small shipment from this property was made,  and preparations are now under way  to facilitate ore being forwarded regularly to Everett.  Some big assays have been obtained  by the Lade brothers from their claim  on Gainer Creek, and there now seems  little doubt that these properties are  of considerable value.  At the Free Coinage, adjoining the  Silver Cup. some high grade gray  copper ore was recently struck and  indications point to this claim turning  out very profitably.  The last shipment of Silver Cup ore,  amounting to about 55 tons, returned  about 225 ounces of silver to the ton,  besides good values in gold and lead.  Some 1G0 tons nf similar ore are now  sacked at the property awaiting ship  ment, besides which there is a large  quantity of concentrating ore, assaying about $25 to the ton, on the dump,  and large bodies of clean concentrating oie are in eight at the property.  Development work to obtain further  depth is  being actively prosecuted.*'  WANT SIFTON TO RETIRE  He May be Made Premier of Manitoba  or Governor of the Northwest  The Ottawa correspondent of the  Mail and Empire says that Mr. Sifton  has been summoned very suddenly  and urgently to Quebec and it is reported that he has lieen summoned  for the purpose of endeavoring to  induce him to retire from the cabinet  and either accept the governorship of  the Northwest Territories or to  succeed Mr. Greenway as premier of  Manitoba. The latter, says the correspondent, is anxious to "retire and go  to the senate.  No Wonder They Got Mad  The editor of a paper in Nevada is  hiding in the hills in hopes of saving  his life which is threatened to be  taken as the result of his getting the  reports of a cattle show and a concert  mixed up; The article appeared in his  paper thus: " The concert given by  sixteen of our most beautiful young  ladies was 'highly appreciated. They  sang in a, most charming manner,  winning'the plaudits of the audience,  who pronounced theni best herd of  shorthorns in the countrj*. A few are  of a rich, brown color, lint the majority are spotted brown and white.  Several of the heifers are -able-bodied  and clean-limbed animals, and promise  to be good milkers.  Hutchison���������Bielby  A quiet little wedding took place at  the residence of' R. P, Pettipiece,  Second St., last evening at 8 o'clock,  when Rev. S. J. Thompson united ir.  the holy bonds of matrimony, Robt.  Hutchison of Goldon, to Miss Alice  Bielby of Fletcher, Idaho, sister of  Mrs. R. P. Pettipiece. The bride was  prettily attired in a combination of  cream satin duchesse and batiste with  rnche of mousseline de sail, outlined  byJrnechlin 'inserting.. The bridal  costume being made by Miss Austin.  Miss L. p. .Pettipiece was bridesmaid,  while' WlBreuuan acted as groomsman.  After the ceremony was over-I'fewiu-  Minate-friends sat down to a sumptuous wedding dinner'.;"arid, a'-pleasant  evening wus'spent hy those present.  A Promising Lardeau Property  M. O. Tibbits, of the Canada Mutual  Mining & Development Company,  writes that his company has secured  the Hunter and Trapper group, in the  Lardeau. The property is located up  the head of Pool creek, about 12 miles  from the old town of Liudeau, on. the  thumb of Upper Arrow Lake. The  showing includes a 20 foot ledge of  silver-leud ore, carried between lime  and slate." H. N. Boss, one of the  former owners, writing-of the property, says that the group shows an  ore chute that can be traced for a  distance of 600 feet. The hanging  wall, which is marked l>y a tall streak,  carries a pay chute a foot wide, assaying very high iu silver. The rest of  the ore chute is a" large deposit of  medium grade mineral, carrying silver, lead and gold. The giingue is a  blue quartz heavily impregnated with  lime. The ore on the whole is nf a  concentrating nature. ' A 15-foot shaft  shows ore assaying as high as 1,107  ounces in silver and $14 in gold, equal  to a total value of $685.32.���������Rossland  Miner.  Rapid Railroad Building  Past records in the way of railway  construction are beaten. It is one of  the marvels of the age, the fact that  the Crow's Nest Pass li_.ilway will be  completed frcm Lethbridge to Kootenay Luke, a distance of about SOOmiles  within a period of 14 months. It is all  the more wonderful when it is considered that even the engineering work  was hardly commenced 14 months ago.  Yot this railway has been built  through two ranges of mountains, the  Sdkirks and the Rockies, and will  before the close of the year be complete in every respect as to side tracks,  bridges, water tanks, section houses  and all other accessories. The steel  laying machine, under the charge of  J. Turnbull, has been for some time  past putting down rails at .the rate of  four miles per day. The transfi-r slips  at the fooc of Kootenay Lake, being  built for the purpose of transferring  the cars and canying merchandise  from the present terminus of the  railway to Nelson, now looks like a  forest of piles. Freight will in a short  time be able to go straight from Winnipeg to Kossland without transhipment.���������Golden Miner.

Th6 wedding, although extremely  quiet, was a very pretty ������ae. A number of friends of the popular young  couple were present .and the church  was tastefully decorated with flowers.  The bride looked charming in a handsome travelling costume of blue cloth,  trimmed with cerise, and wore a picture hat of cerise and whito. Sh _ carried a beautiful bouquet of roses and  maiden hair fern, and was supported  bv her sisters, in" green and -rhlte.  lier brother, Archibald Trow, of the  civil service postal department, gave  her away.'  Tho groom, who is ono of the most  popular of the younger genoratlou in  Ottawa society, as well as in Calgary  and Vancouver, was attended by B.  V.

Among the numerous gifts should  be noted that of the bridegroom to  tbe bride���������a gold ������wateh and chain,  and those to the bridesmaids���������opal  rings and gold broaches set with  amethysts.

The sloppy featuro will  bo carefully eliminated, and lots of  fun, dancing and music may be  looked for. Every one should make  an effort to be present.  *    ���������    ���������  Alhough ll Is unlikely that the  Duchess of Marlborough and Calamity Juno will bo ablo to be present  to* givo tlieir celebrated wing dance,  arrangmonts have been made with  Mr. Edward Nunncloy to recite  "Curfew Shall Not Ring Tonight,"  whilo Mr. Ketchon has kindly consented   not  lo sing.

A Iutlo of it  is all right. But a surfeit will tire  t.ho public in time. Thoy should remember that the public care nothing  about us and our personal differences;  it is the newspaper thoy arc after.  ���������   _   _  Besides, paragraphs of that nature,  unless  wrilon  with  somo  skill,  have  little  point.  1   *   .  The worst feature about "batching"  is  this having to  mako up your bed  every  night before  crawling  into   it.  ��������� *  *  -Would it nol be a grand thing if it  were vouchsafed to us to know just  how long wo wore destined to livo.  -One' could then ' plan and gauge  <-verything In advance. K nowing  the exact nuinber of days allotted to  us. and our minds having become  familiarized with the idea of sure  death on a certain day, we could viow  the end with serenity of heart. If a  man knew for a fact that six months  bonce his light would go out, he  could stop scraping up money and  go off on a long finale spree, winding-  up in a blaze of glory. A stuff, conscious of having ouly one year longer  to be a stuff in. woud hesitate before marrying a nice young lady and  leaving her a widow; although there  might be the chance of the lady herself being willing to see the fatal  year shortened by six months, so that  she could unstuff herself. There aro  a'-lot-of things wc would , leave, undone, or strive to do,' did !we bul  know the exact number of- our days.  However,  for  our peace  of, mind,  it  may be best the way.it is.  _   .   ���������  Then again, if, like naturo in lhe  spring, we could come to life again  some day and begin tho thing afresh,  with tho use of memory to furnish  the experience of past follies, how  we would repent and try to do  better! Our respective views on subjects and- chai'actcrislics.would.be  reversed. Tho wicked . would become better, and- the good see the  folly of being too good to the extent  of modifying their sluffy proclivities.  Nunneley, for ' example, would ,ba  found running a Ismail grocery and  affecting total ignorance ot cayuses  and draw poker; Jerry.. Boy co .woud  conduct evangelical services'in the  ODCn air. and thunder out exordiums  against the' race track: the editor of  the South' Edmonton Paiudealcr  would bo running a poker game and  a blind pig, gctitng run in .and fined  every once in a while: while wc ourselves would bo discovered whooping  up prohibition on the street cornet-  like four of a kind.  Or.o .reason wo should ;so much  like- to "die and como lo life' again is  that wo could afterwards write for  the information of the public au  oilicial and trustworthy comparison  between Hades and  South Edmonton.  = W A  A somewhat exciting scene was  witnessed In Jerry Boyce's bear pen  last Monday.

The 'crowd  that collected wero astounded to see  the animals suddenly fall from the  dizzy height tn the ground.

Therefore, as it was so  easy to sail his ships  into tho harbors of  "tlio defenseless islands, to subjugate tho  natives and .to lake away the products ol  their mines and soil, ho commenced a vcr-  itablo course of piracy. -  Tho acquisition of gold and all sorts of  plunder seemed to bo tho solo object of  this Spanish expedition,,and natives wero  enslaved   and-i subjected to tho greatest  ' hardships, so that thoy died in great num-  ' bers: At ono timo 300 of them wero sent as  slaves to Spain.

It    seems    that    an  old  Indian who was nearly blind, named  Dusk, had been brutally murdered by  a big man of'the Alaska tribe, named  Wistlnwh,  tho  object of  the  murder  had  boon    plunder,    and  Ihero    was  little difficulty in tracing the perpetrator of-the deed. According to tribal  custom  the  murderer  was  compelled  i.o ho present at the funeral rites of  his victim.   Aniohgst the Alaska Indians,  nothing    wipes    oul  murder,  but.  the  death  of  the  niurdsrcr, and  Wiuttawh knew full    woll liis   doom._  Sitting amongst  tho  relatives  of his  victim, whilst the funeral  rites wero  bring carried out. he read moat surely  'that  swift    Justice    would    overtake  '   him, and jumping up he sent a bullet  through his own skull from a heavy  revolver    which  ho    had    concealed.

Shortly afterwards-'the'merchant rer  ceived a letter from the customer,  expressing regret lhat the butter  was not good, and stating that it  -was-being-relnrncd-in-order-that_th__  merchant might for himself judge of  its quality,  (or lack-of it).  When the butter was.received back  by the merchant in the" Nortli West  Territories,- he," together with the  government .superintendent of creameries',' the butter maker and the agent  of the Express" company made an examination of it, and of the box con1  taming   it,   with   tne. result   tnat:  The private marks on the box revealed the fact that that particular  box had been packed at the government creamery in 1S97, and that it  had been shipped to Calgary, and  from thence to a ...in in Vancouver  in  1-U7.  , The box returned by the customer,  was, upon examination, foimd to be  lined with blue tissue paper, and the  butter it contained was quite stale,  oft color and unevenly packed; while  the rusty nail holes in the lid asKl  edges of the box showed plainly that  the lid had been - removed several  times.  The merchant laid a complaint at  the oflice of the Express company,  and the case was taken up .by the  company.

London,   September  S.���������Sir   Herbert  Kitchener is the nian   of lho    hour.  and the eagerness   displayed    in the  streets on Saturday and Sunday   for  latest war news,  continues unabated.

BRAVERY OF THE EGYPTIANS  People cannot fail to notico the  steady behaviour and bravery of^ the  Egyptian troops, who constituted the  left flank when they wore charged  by the Dervish army. These were  not like the Soudanese, born fighters,  but men who some 15 years ago wore  so cowardly and lacking in courage,  that some of the best judges said confidently, it was impossible to make  soldiers out of them. It is a magnificent tribute to what the British  ollicers can do in the way of training  the worst material. It adds, another  to the sources of the military strength  of the'Empire, and il is interesting to  note in this connecj-ion, that the annual army returns presented, to parliament a few weeks ago sets out, for  the.first time, all the regular forces  ot lhe Queen, wherever they may be  found. The total is 900,000, and this  does not include the Imperial service  trc ops���������that is soldiers trained and  supported by the native Indian princes  who would be available in any emergency.  BRITISH BLUE JACKETS  ' The conduct of the sailors who went  down on Monday nighl ��������� in the Norwegian schooner Livllg shines brightly bv contrast, and docs infinite honor  to the courage and discipline of British'blue jackets. ��������� When the cruiser  Cleopatra collided with Uie schooner,  she not only stood by her as in duty  bound, but sent IS men to help the  Livllg's crew to keep their ship  afloat. Whon tho I.ivlig, which had  been taken in tow by a lug, suddenly  began lo founder, the Cleopatra' helped  U' rescue her. company, and although  there was" nol time to rescue everybody, all tho foreigners wore taken  off." A petty officer, a signal man and  a first-class" boy. who had formed part  of the relief crew sent from tho  Cleopatra stayed lo the end. They  lost their lives iu the dark waters of  the Cattagut, and even when the poor  follows were struggling in the water,  lhey exhibited the* samo spirit of self  sacrifice, as they had done on hoarding the Livlig, when they iii-islud  that the foreigners should "'be taken  off first.

A public house known as  lhc Old Anns, a comparatively'small  house, with garden, yard iind outbuildings was sold. Tho house, gar-  don, yard, etc., would probably by  tl.emselves alone have not fetched  moro than a fow .hundred pounds.  Being endowed with a license, however, as. well as being immediately  opposito to tUc now works of Sir XV.  ���������"Armstrong & Co., Lhe property has  sold for ������28.100. On tho othor hand,  a largo and handsome mansion, surrounded by beautiful pleasure  grounds, farms, cottages, lodges and  plantation covering an area of 790  acres, was sold for X25,SOO, loss than  was paid for an ordinary public house.  It was of course the license, coupled  wilh the chance of making enormous  profits oul of the liquor tralfic, that  made the one property so much  higher than the olher.  THE  WEATHER  Tho weather during the past week  has again been very varied. High  winds, sunshine and rain, warmth and  bitter cold in a surprising manner.  At this time the farmer has every  reason lo dread these changes. So  much corn is lying in stook and a  considerable portion remaining uncut,  anything but drying winds and sunshine means so- much out of the  farmers pocket. Prices still steadily.  decline. ���������-=  YUKON FORTUNES  Romantic tales continue to come  froni the Yukon. Robert Sinclair, a  Victoria cab driver has letuined, with  5-10,000. Joe Hannah had a claim on  French gulch Creek and after going  down 35 foot gol no gold and was at  tho end of his supplies. He determined to v.-otk jusl ono day more and  lhat day ho struck it rich and now  has a fortune. William'Bateman of  Oak lake took -in a .large quantity of  liquor and food. When he landed in  Dawson his first call was al the barber shop, where he had a hair cut and  a shave and parted with ?2.50 as the  cnuivalcnt. The lesson in high prices  was not lost, and when aa hour later  he was asked for a bottle of three star  ILennessey brandy, ?3G was the price.  The balance of tho stock sold at corresponding values and Bateman is satisfied. .
