By a special issue of the Gazette on
the last day of the old year the gov-
criiti.ent brought into torce the Act
to regulate immigration into Uritish

last session of the legislature. The

I hat of the Natal Act. It debars any

who, when asked to do so by the

Interesting Account of Some Notable   .
Lardeau   Properties.
Robert   Gunn   and   Aitluu*    Uunn,
mining men who .'ire ititeiested in  the;
Lardeau district,   have just arrived in
tin* city.    Mr. R. Gunn states that thr
mining piospects  of lhat  district arc*,
brighter now   than   they   have,  been
during the histoiy of the district.  The    -,
piiuclple   group   in-* which ne is interested is the Lade group,   consisting  of
five   claims   situated   at   the   head of
Gainer creek,    lt is si gold  proposition
and the oie is  high   grade.    A .picked
sample gave returns of SHO  per   ton:
Already  l'ZQ feet   of a crosscut tunnel
has been run  lo  lap   the   ledge   at   ;t
dept h of So feel.   Tho ledge* is in some
places 'io feet wide.    On   this property
work has been slopped for this season
but   :\i   an   eaily   date   in thc spring
further and" more  extensive development   will   be.  resumed.     The   Gunn    '
brothers also had alease on the Triunn
group, situated near   the   Silver   Cup'    *���
'mine    and    about   eight   miles   fiom
Ferguson.    Considerable, development
has been done and a trial shipment   of
100 tons Has been made and  it   gave a
net return of over SoOO. This shipment
was taken out, during the development,
at 100 feet.    JCheir lease   has   just   expired hut they still  have about -10 tons
io ship.    The   property -is   now   con-"
ti olU-d  by  the Ferguson brothers and
in the spring  they  will proceed > witht
further   development.     The   develop-   .
ment of this property consists of about
100 feet ol" tunnelling and   some   stop-    '
ing.   - - - . '
The Crouiwell, or better  known  as   -
lhe "Skyscraper,"' is on the same, gold
belt as the Triune,   and   was ' located
late last suuuner.    Very little development on- this   has been   done  and   a .
small shipment or seven  tons of ore'
which   was   entirely   taken   from the
surface, was shipped and good returns
were obtained.   The principle owners
aie James Grant and Edward Morgan.
A large force of men   "Will   he" put   to1
woik on  tlie  property   next summer. '
Near the above  claini is  situated  the"
Free    Coinage   and   the   Silver   Cup*    -
gioup. The latter during development,
has-hipped   about   'i")0 ions   of . higliT
grade  silver   and   copper   ore.    More-
work has been done on  this property*
than any other in the district. A large.'
quantity of ore is already blocked  out,
und further shipment's will   he   niiide.-
Considerable   tunnelling   and   also   a,-"
large amount of drifting has beendoni*' ,
on the ledges.    Three ledges ol considerable width   have   been   discovered.-   '
Nearby is situated' the Towser claim

It would require  a microscope to find the policy of the  ' present-"adniiiiistration and thc people  of Canada want the party in power  to have strong convictions and to act  up to them. The only course for tho  Conservatives to pursue at present is  to' hold a national convention and  decide upon a plan of campaign. The*  s- first elements of success is for a polit  ical party to he in touch with the  people and if a policy were framed  and a leader chosen hy the people  themselves there would not be much  chance of them going back on thoir  Ftandard bearers. If a convention  were held with representatives from  every portion of the country it would  mean that every man of the party, no  matter how insignificant he might be,  would have a say in the formulation  of the policy to he aiiopted. It  would then be a case or a popular  policy, and the people would be in  the closest of touch with their political leaders.     The Conservatives have  4 now a splendid  chance to inaugurate  a constructive policy that would  sweep the opportunism of the Laurier-  Tarte aggregation into the Limbo o������  "has beens."

A  Vast Undertaking.  A Panama Canal Would not Cost so Much,  Believing that Information on the  subject of tho Nicaragua canal, about  which thero Is so much controversy  at present will prove of interest  wo republish tho follow  ing  comprehensive  article  from,  the  Canadian   Journal   of   Commerce:  Tho commission appointed to investigate | thc proposed scheme of a  canal across the isthmus of Panama,  has reported that: "Tho most practicable aud feasible route tor | an  isthmus canal, under the control,  management and ownership of the  United. States, is.that known as tho  Nicaragua route.' The commission  estimates tho cost of this routo at  ?200,G40,OO0. Tliis estimate is much  in excess of any heretofore made. Thc  cornmlssion also estimates the coat of  a canal, by the Panama route at f 142,-  342, 579, according to ono route. As  between tho Nicaragua and Panama  routes, the commission sums .up a  number of advantages favorable- to  tho former. It states also that under  the concessions .given by the government of Colombia to the Panama.  Canal company that, government is  not tree to grant the,necessary rights  lo the United States, except upon  conditions made by the compauy. A  thorough investigation, has been made  not only of Uie Nicaragua and Panama routes but of other possible  routes, thc commission .keeping in  mind the industrial,, commercial and  military value ot nn inter-oceanic  canal, and also the rights, privileges,  and franchises necessary to he secured for thc construction of a canal  under the control, management and  ownership of the TJnitcd States.  Tho canal, as projected, would have  an average width of 150 feet; tho  locks would be 7'10 feet long, 894 feet  wido and oil feet deep. Such dimensions would allow the largest ships*  afloat to pass through th������ canal, .but  the width would ,he insufficient for  thoir passing each other on their way.  Tho canal would occupy 10 years in  construction in which time the size  of vessels is likely to he increased,  so the width -Is none too great nor  the locks overlong considering -the  future.  Tlie course of the canal is proposed to be from i.Greytown, on the At*  lantic side, along iho San Juan river,  through Lalco Nicaragua, and emerging on iho Pacific coast :iL Brito. Tho  total length would be ISC miles. The  tonnage estimated to pass through  this waterway is seven millions of  tons annually, but conditions may so  materially change during Us construction that all estimates are guess  work to a great extent. The canal  would practically give the American  and Canadian ports on the east coast  a direct opening on the West into  tho Pacific. It. would also give ilie  ports on the Pacific coast direct com-  ���������ii'iation. with the Atlantic 'Vessels from this port wou"'l have a  short cut to tho Pacific pons and all  the countries of the east, and the  Australian group. What the 'effect  of such a new opening from' the Atlantic to the Pacific would ^have on  tho Canadian Pacific railway is a  serious problem. There seems much  probability that 'access to the Atlantic -V the short route via the canal  won!,, be of great advantage to British-^Columbia.  Considering the 'oatlook our Now  fork namesake thinks that "as compared with Europe the United States  will derive from the canal far greater  benefits, both commerically and industrially. Tho commerce of Europe  with the Pacific coast of North, Central and South America, under existing conditions, is somewhat larger  than the total volume of the present  traffic of the United States that may  bo considered tributary to the canal;  but this Tact does not indicate the  rotative advantages which the canal  will possess for the trade of Europe  and that of the United States. As  isoon as it has been opened our trade  with Uie west coast of South America will rapidly increase, as will also  the volume of American trade with  the Orient. The amount of American  commerce through the canal will  quickly surpass the totai amount of  Europe's traffic. An Tsthminn canal  will strengthen cho unity of the national and political interests; of the  United Sates, de\*eIop its Pacific territory and promote the commerce end  industries of the entire country. The  benefits which Europe- win derive  from the canal will be commercial.  In addition to this those of tht._State;t-  wiir bo" political and industrial.

The Information came in tho form  of a' cablegram from Lord Strathcona  to tho militia department, the cablegram reading as follows:  "London, ec. 17.���������Private Hay S..

When recruiting for the first contingent was proceeding in this city,  ."Hay" was ono of the first to offer  himself for. Uie front.

Thf* water would probably he diverted from the different rivers and carried by intersecting canals to tho  hundreds of thousands of acres of  farming lands, which would thus be  n-.ade to yield abundant crops. The  company's engineers who have been  over the ground, are fully qualified to  undertake these works, and a large  corporation ilko the Canadian Pacific  could, it is argued, carry out such  a project better than the smaller  undertakings who have nor. |,ho f.axne  extensive resources at their ..command.     ������������������'  ,  %for the.president, of the Boer republic  mHe .first of all tried to deprive the  British lion'-Jjf bis t'-Hh. ann failing  of -that purpose has had tr. get hip  own pulled by one of ik-s'" v. help.-'.

Falls of  Miss Margaret Jennings, the victim of  knock out drops. The case is in many  respects similar to the Jennie lloss-  chieter case of Patteison. Ns',T.,'and  before the' official investigation litis  been finished it promises some sensational developments and Involve  persons of high social standing in  Herkimer county.  Up to December Sth Miss Jennings  had lived with her niece. Miss Nellie  Franks, at 1SS Whitesboro street, thi.s  city. Sho left on that date going  to Herkimer, and a few days ago she  was found in the Nelson house in Unit  village. Thc proprietor thought she-  was drunk and she was put io bed.  As sho failed to come lo her senses  in a reasonable time, it dawned upon  j the. landlord that probably the woman  .was a vtaUm of some drug and a  physician was sumonod. The docLor  said that hor condition was not  serious and it was decided lo remove  her lo the county house. After she  had been there a few days her brother Michael Jennings. " was notified.  Ho went to tho county house, where  he found his sister in a critical condition.. At first she failed to- recognize her brother and raved constantly  und   mumbled   incoherently. ���������  Her condition, was so serious that  it was thought inadvisable to remove  her to her brother's home in Little  Falls until yesterday. Dr. Santry,  who was called upon her arrival  there*, expressed alarm at the seriousness .of the woman's' condition,  and it was tnought advisable to call  in  Coroner Eleletli.  Miss Jennings talked disjointedly,  but 'sufficientwa s gleaned from her  statements io warrant the statement  tha, sho was the victim of knockout  drops. She said that on December  7th sho fell in with some young mon  in Herkimer.who took her to "Wood's  place." It is thought that the Wood  referred to is the keeper of a saloon  an ,resort near tho freighthouse ln  Herkimer. Wood, it is alleged, manifested great ln terest in getting the  woman out of the way,,and he secured the order from the Herkimer poor  master to have her put ln the county  houso at Middleville. Wood accompanied the woman to that institution.  The Jennings girl told of several  resorts Into which she had lieen dras-  ged  by  her_male_ companions  She  "also told of drinking something from  a bowl and being escorted to the  Nelson  house by Wood.  The* woman's arms are black and  blue nnd her limbs burned to a blister  by hot -water being applied to re-  n'va her. There are also many  marks made by the application of an  electric battery.  Miss Jennings died in Little Falls  late this afternoon in frightful agony.  Shn raved Incessantly ,of her experience on t.he occasion of her re-  c-iving  the  fatal  potion.  The farts will "no laid before tho  grand jury at Herkimer within a few-  days and some startling rovclntlonn  may b������ expected. ,  On the hepjs of thc death of Margaret Jennings coni'-s thti assertion  of a Little Falls woman.that ona re  cent visit to Herkimer she was inveigled info a resort, drugged and  criminally assaulted. Pier testimony  will .-undoubt'rily play an important  port in the official investigation in flic  Jennings  girl's   death.  An Omaha despath says: The result of 24 hours work of tlie police  has brought to light thc location or  tho house ia which Edward Cudahy,  Jr.. was held a prisoner for nearly  two daya, from which he was returned to his homo In the city at a' late  hour Wednesday alght  Tho house la located four miles  from tho city and in a place of easy  accesa.but so altuatod as to allow, the  kidnappers ample opportunity to lay  and carry out thoir plans without  molestation from in quiring neighbors. Within easy communication  with rail and wagon roads leading  out of Omaha and South Omaha, and  on a high hill,and sentries could give  Immediate alarm in case of necessity,  the one and a. half storey shack had  heen admirably chosen by the bandits. No doubt exists in the minds  of the polico as to the identity of  tho i>lace. ' Voung Cudahy was taken  to the placo and identified many  featurea -whl-ch he had recognized  while ablindfolded prisoner.  Tho testimony of the neighbors  also is ot a nature lhat leads every  ono to believe they have found the  retreat of tho abductors. Evidences  show that they made a hurried departure, when their night's work was  completed.  Reporters Found the House  Tlio World-Herald reporters tliis  afternoon located the house in which  Eddie Cudahy was hold prisoner at  3604 Groves street, four miles south  west of the city. Absolute evidence  was obttiined and further corroboration by Eddie Cudahy. Tlie house is  on an isolated promontory commanding a full view of the surrounding  country for miles about. It is a two-  stofoy building and has tho rickety  staircase and other features described  by the boy. On iho second floor  was ��������� found a now well bucket containing water.from which the million-,  aire's sou had quenched his thirst.  About the roorii were found hundreds  of cigarette, stubs and burnt matches  and a small quantity of sugar and  coffee.  It is stated this morning that Pat  Crowe, well known to the local police  circles, is tho man. whom the police  suspect of being the leader of tho  gang who abducted young Edward  Cudahy on Tuesday night. Officers in  citizen's clothing are looking for  Crowe today, bm so far he has not  heen arrested.  The uolii'e a::tl .Vi relives who arc  at work on Uie muiier are inclined to  holioi-e that men not well acquainted  with Lhe pill-rounding country would  nut. have becu able to manage the  affair us il was, carried on. For this  reason they aro searching for several  local men who are known to bear a  bad reputation.  An extra, force of Pinkortons arrived tills morning and wore put. on  !h-j case. The only clew they have to  work on al present is a copy of tho  letter thrown on Mr. ��������� Cudahy's lawn,-  naming what hour the boy would be  returned. The orginal copy was re-  uirnal wilh the money, this being  one of the conditions demanded by  tiie desperadoes. ���������  Sir. Cudahy this' morning confirmed tho offer of a, reward of ?25,000 for  Hie ni'rosl." of. th'e abductors.  Voung Kdward today slated that  the letter demanding a .ransom was  hurled-into the yarn by his abductors  before they left the neighborhood of  him home. Thar, was Tuesday, December IS.

An  Unknown Murderer Goes  to  the  Scaffold -  A Paris, 111., despatch to the Winnipeg; Tribune says: Ignoring spiritual consolation, and steadfastly adhering to his determination not to  reveal his own name John Owen.alias  John Radcliffe, was oxecuted here  today before a crowd of spectators  that completely filled the yard of-the  Edgar county jail. Owing to tho  mystery surrounding the man's identity and the gonoral impression that  he belonged to .a good family somewhere in the east the case has attracted wide attention ever since the  death sentence was pronounced- on  December 1st. The crime for which  Owen paid the death penalty was tlie  murder of James Hogue on a freight  -train-bet ween=Paris=an(r'TerrtfiHauter  the-night'of September 22nd last.  Owen and bis partner, John Dailey,  had attempted to rob Hogue in a  stock car. but Hogue escaped them,  and was followed by Owen.who killed  him and throw tho body off the train  The murderers were captured at Terra  Haute. .When brought' before the  court Owen repeatedly refused an offer  to avail himself of the privilege of  introducing testimony in mitigation  of his crime. He insisted on pleading  guilty and laughed at tho judge  when the death sentence was pronounce rt. Daily, his -urcomplice, otood  irial and' waa given 40 years' imprisonment ln penitentiary by a jury.  Owen was given several opportunities  lo reconsider his plea of guilty but  declined to aval! himself of the privilege aad during the time he spent  in jail awaiting execution he declined  the counsel of clergy and testified no  remorse or regret for tils crime. In  answer to all inquiries ho replied  that no one should know his name or  where he came from because he desired to shield Ills family from disgrace.   o ���������������������������  The worn out horses that Dr. McEachran bought for Strathcona's  Horse proved such a bad advertisement for thc Territories that the  stockmen of the Territories have the  chagrin' of seeing Texas and Missouri  profittting by thc present demand for  horses in South Africa  The Revelstoke  J-Jeralcl r������*n>i ���������������<*<������������������<���������*  Has moro readers - in North  Kootenay than any other paper;  haa moro. advortlaera ln Revelstoke than any other paper;  does more Job printing In the  city than any other paper; It's  news is aiore spicy and up-to-  datu; its Influenco     le greater;  ������ Its advertising rates aro lowest  circulation considered; Its sub  scription rate Is only $2.00 pei  annum; lt covers the field Try  lt and bo with  the crowd.  ���������      .Writ** to  "������.
