NELSON,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA,. SATURDAY,-DECEMBER .I,. 1898.  TWO,   DOLLARS A YEAR.  VOLTAIRE   AND   KOLA.  Over a Century Ago Voltaire Played the Part  Which Zola Recently Played.  It; i.s a curious coincidence  that somewhat less than 150 years ago there arose a  celebrated case that bears more than one  mark of resemblance to the .Dreyfus case.  In each was there a wrongful conviction,  an undeserved punishment: in each  were  popular passions aroused to the point of  frenzy,   and   while    the  revision  of the  Dreyfus case is due to the intellectuals,  led  by  Zola,   the   reversal   of  the  Galas  .judgment was due to the untiring efforts  and lavish generosity of Voltaire.  ' 'In   1700   and   thereabouts   Franco   was  given   over   to   mediaeval    bigotry  and  superstition.    The revocation of tlie edict  of Nantes had recently expelled many of  her most thoughtful and reasoning citizens.    In   Toulouse,  in  the   province   of  Lunguedo'c, where the Call as tragedy occurred, religious  intolerance  reached its  highest pitch.    Such horrors as  the massacre of S. Bartholomew were celebrated  with processions and thanksgivings.  There was living in Toulouse a merchant named Jean Calas, a prosperous,  and worthy citizen. He was honorable,  industrious, broad-minded and, unfortunately i'or himself, a Huguenot. He had  a wife and six children, two of whom  were away from home when the tragedy  occurred. His oldest son, Marc An to hie,  was of a morbid and gloomy disposition  aud had become despondent because, being a Huguenot, he was forbidden to practice law. Ou the evening of October 13th,  L'7fll, after having been unusually gloomy  all day, he left his family at the supper  table and went down stairs and hanged  himself, where he was found by his  brother about'ai* hour later.  The outcries of the startled ��� family  draw a curious crowd outside. It soon  was whispered around that a sudden  death bad occurred within. Tho crowd  saw two young men leave the house  hastily and hurry in different directions,  one was going for a doctor, the other for  the police. The excitement in the crowd  increased, and someone exclaimed justes  the magistrateai rived, "Those Huguenots  have killed their son!"  'That settled it. No more was to be  /said. Magistrates, clergy and pcuph-  were fully convinced that that was the  case. They scouted all notion of suicide.  Tlie entire family, including a friend who  had taken supper with them, and the servant were immediately arrested, and  Marc Antoine was treated a.s a martyr.'  But oven in those times they could not  convict a man with_'_t winy .videiu-o,  and here is where the first- striking resemblance to tho Dreyfus case occurs. Not  having a sera)) of eviaence against tlie  Calas family, yet being determined to  convict, they were forced to manufacture  some. JO veil the clergy announced from  the pulpit that all who had any knowledge of this matter by hearsay or otherwise should produce it. Fven then the  imagination of the people could not supply any direct evidence against the family, but a large amount of hearsay testimony sprang up. One man testified that  a boy wlio had been iu told him that he  had heard a voice cry out: "Oh, tuon  Dieu, they are strangling me!" When  searched for the boy could not be found,  a fact that bore heavilj- against the accused. Another witness testified that  some one, he had forgotten whom, had  told him that oue of his friends had told  him that his apprentice had told him that  he had beard a voice begging for mercy.  This important evidence was admitted by  the court. It was gravely asserted that  it must have been murder, for the victim'  could not possibly have hanged himself  in the position described. This the court  accepted without taking the trouble to  send an officer to examine into its truth.  Aud yet this court was no ordinary tribunal, but a special committee of the parliament of Toulouse. On March 9, 1702,  this committee, on evidence of no more  value than the above, rendered a verdict  of guilty against .Jean Calas, and sentenced hi in to torture and death, hoping  in this way to force from him a confession  that would justify his own conviction and  that of the rest of his family. This sentence was executed the next day, but  Jean Calas, having nothing to confess,  remained silent, and the baffled court was  forced to release the rest of the prisoners.  ��� 1't contented itself with putting the  daughteis in a convent and confiscating  the property.  Such was the first stage of the.case, a  stage in which popular passions, reflected  only too accurately by the authorities,  overrode all law and justice.  A few days after the execution of Jean  Calas, a merchant who had been in Toulouse at the time, and on whom the  tragedy had made a great impression,  was visiting Voltaire and told him the  story. Voltaire was not much impressed,  saying that unnatural as it was to suppose that a father would kill his child, it  was still more unnatural to think that an  intelligent aud uubiased court would  wrongfully condemn a man to such a  death. But he was sufficiently interested  to make further inquiries and quickly  came to the correct conclusion, that Calas  and his entire family were innocent. He  then threw the whole force of his will  aud intellect into the struggle to reverse  the judgment. Tho Calas family were  nothing to him. but it was a great deal to  him that such a fearful wrong should  take place in France. He soon saw that  it was impossible to do anything with the  parliament of Toulouse. That body, like  the present general stall' of France, refused to admit the possibility of error,  would ou no account reopen the case and  would permit no one to see the lecords  of it.  Voltaire   turned   to   Paris,    lie   wrote  himself to the minister of justice, and interesting all  his influential friends, and  through  them   their  friends, he deluged  the minister with letters, urging a revision  of the case,   .lie published pamphlet after  pamphlet,   telling  the   whole   story and  pleading powerfully   for justice  to this  unfortunate   family,     lie    engaged   the  ablest lawyers in France to push the case,  and he paid all these expenses out of his  own   pocket.    He  was slowly arousing a  public opinion that would  demand a revision in on  unmistakable  way.    Contributions came in to help him in  his work.  Mine, dn  Pompadour was his  friend, but  the king, who had signed  the  revocation  of the edict of Nantes, was. hard to move.  Since the public opinion of J-Yance was  insufficient,  Voltaire  determined   to call  that of Europe to his aid.    His letters and  pamphlets  on   the case  were   translated  into   several    languages    and    scattered  broadcast.    All Europe was aroused to.in-  dignalion:   subscriptions   came   in  from  the  young   queen   of   J_ngland,   wife   of  George 111., from the king of Poland, and  many   German   princes.    Under" all   this  pressure from at home and abroad the king  at last consented, just one year after the  death of Calas, to have the case reviewed  by a commission. This com mission ordered  the records of the case to bo furnished by  the  parliament  of Toulouse, and  a  new  trial to be held in Paris.    There were still  many delays, so that it was two years or  more befoie the fiual verdict was rend-  dered, but when it ctimeitwa.su complete  vindication.   The judgment of the parliament of Toulouse was declared  reversed;  Jean   Calas,  his   wife,   his   children,  his  guest and his  servant  were  pronounced  absolutely innocent of the charge against  them, and the family reinstated, as far as  possible, in their old possessions.  ATLIN   LAKE   GOLD   FIELDS.  Provincial Government -will Make a Clean-up  by tho Sale of Town Lots in the Spring.  The provincial government has appointed a gold commissioner for the Atlin  lake section, and within a few days a surveyor will leave for the same point, to  survey a townsite within tbe reserve-  which was placed upon the land when  the news of the gold discoveries reached  the coast.  It is the tributaries of Surprise lake  that are supposed to constitute the most  valuable part of tho new district. This  lake and Atlin and Taku Arm are nearly  of equal length. They are nearly parallel  to each other, with a trend about north  and south--narrow, river-like stretches of  deep, clear, water, abounding" in trout  and white_sh._ Surprise lake is inought  to lie at least /() miles long, but it is only  the southern end that has been much explored. Here are at least four tributaries,  Wright and Otter on oue side of the lake  and Jluby and Boulder on the other, that  have had work done on them the last  two or three months. Of the four Wright  creek is most developed, but all have  made a satisfactory showing. Cold  has come from nearly all of the different  creeks where mining has been attempted.  From .the standpoint of a miner there is  hardly any resemblance between the Atlin and the Klondike diggings. In point  of richness or of total product iu prospect  it is not claimed that the former compares  with the latter, although Atlin is in its  infancy and its possibilities are not yet to  be defined. In the Atlin district hardly  any of the ground is frozen in summer,  and the depth to bedrock is only from  two to eight feet, the average depth being  from four to five. The pay dirt is of a  free aud friable nature, without clay, but  the gold is not distributed throughout  any thickness of the gravel. It is all concentrated upon bedrock or in crevices.  EAST   KOOTENAY   NOTES.  * J.evelopment work ou the North Star  mine is proceeding at a most gratifying  rate. The new double compartment  shaft is down close upon 100 feet; it is  said that crosscutting will commence as  soon as a depth of o00 feet is obtained.  The new hoisting machinery will soon be  in operation.  During the summer of !<SU7 seventeen  hundred quartz locations were recorded  iu Fort Steele. This was a most remarkable showing for a new district. During  the past year 052 new locations were  made, which, though only 33 per cent, of  the amount of 1807, yet it is a very flattering showing of new mineral prospects. A  large number of these new locations are  situated in the main range of the Rocky  mountains, within'a few miles of-Fort  Steele.   Another Member Forced to Resign.  Mr. Robertson, the member elect for  Cowichan in the provincial legislature,  has resigned his seat for the same reason  as that leading to Mr. Neill's resignation  last week, the acceptance of money from  the government for work performed on  the roads in that district. Mr. Robertson  will again be a candidate.  The Contempt of Court Case Adjourned.  The hearing of the application to commit W. II. Ellis aud Charles Lugriu of the  Colonist for contempt of court in connection with the publication of articles respecting the trkil of the Lillooet election  petition has been adjourned until Monday.  The Accusers Fall to Appear.  The invitation extended by the minister  of the interior to all persons possessing  knowledge of official wrongdoing in Yukon administration to send in specific  charges for investigation, has, after a  lapse of several weeks, produced no response.  PUBLIC   LIBRARY   MEETING.  THE   LOST   ROCKER.  Board of Directors Elected and Committees  Struck to Attend to Preliminary "Work.  There was a good attendance of those  interested in the establishment of a public library at Tuesday's meeting of the  Nelson Public Library Association. Mayor  Houston presided and E. A. .Crease acted  as secretary.  The first business taken up was the  election of directors, and on motion of  ���T. A. Turner it was decided that the  board should consist of fifteen directors,  five of whom should be nominated by the  National Council of Women, and the remaining ten chosen from among those  who had subscribed. to the fund. The  Women's Council then nominated as their  representatives Mesdames J. Jt. Robertson, A., L. MeCulloeh, S.'S. Taylor, R.  Day and Stocks. There were chosen from  among the subscribers Mrs. Isabel Arthur,  E. A. Crease, George K'ydd, Dr. Hall, G.  V. Holt, G.Frank Beer, II. Hedley, F. C.  Green, Dr. LaBau and Mrs. Miller. Mrs.  J. II. Robertson was elected president;  Dr. Hall, vice-president; Geo. Kydd,  treasurer, and Mrs. - A. L. MeCulloeh,  secretary.  A unanimous vote of thanks was tendered to Mr. Brougham, Mrs. Parry, Mrs.  Brougham. Mr. Kydd and the members of  the Nelson Musical Society for the successful concert which was given on Thanksgiving night, which netted $S5 for the  library fund. There are now available  for library purposes over $1,000.  The directors met at the close of the  general meeting and drafted committees  for the following purposes: Incorporation, J_. A. Crease; drafting rules and bylaws, George Kydd, F. C. Green and Judge  Forin: room and furnishing, Dr. Hall, Jt.  Hedley and Mrs. Miller: books and periodicals. 'l_. A. Crease, G. Frank J3eer and  Mrs. Stocks: Librarians, Mesdames  Robertson, Arthur and MeCulloeh: finance, G. Frank Beer, J^r. Hall and Mrs.  S. S. Taylor. The several committees will  report on Tuesday evening.  MUNICIPAL   MATTERS.'  At Monday afternoon's meeting of the  city council the public works committee  reported adversely upon the proposal of  John Lapointo to remove earth for the  filling of Josephine street at -31 cents per  yard. The committee reported that if  funds are available that.tenders be called  for for opening up and grading Josephine  streot from the railway track to, Vernon  street; and that necessary repairs be  made to the roadway on Front street, between Hall and Cedar streets. Also that  the mayor be authorized to have the Josephine street steps put in a satisfactory  condition.  The question as to the providing of  funds for the work of grading Josephine  street was referred to the finance committee, to report at next meeting.  The report of James Coyle on the feasibility of diverting water into Cottonwood  Smith creek, at or near Summit lake, from  streams on the watershed south of the  lake, was read. The diverting of the water would require the construction of  about 2.', miles of flumiug, and it is estimated "that the water secured would  double the capacity of the electric light  plant at the low water season.  The city clerk was authorized to call  for tenders for the privilege of taking ice  during the winter of 1SOS-0 from off the  city's reservoir.  The question of the establishing of city  weigh scales was referred to the mayor.  Alderman Whalley gave notice that at  the next meeting of the council he will  introduce something in the nature of a  curfew by-law, under sub-section 10*5 of  section 50 of the Municipal Clauses Act  for regulating the hours during which  children may' be on the streets without  their parents or guardians.  YMIR   MINING   NOTES.  The Porto Rico mill has commenced  running under the superintendency ot  Professor J.-.C. Garvin.  Work in the Monarch shaft is progressing favorably, and any clay a new strike  may be expected.  The Shiloh, about half a mile from  Ymir, is steadily developing, and a crown  grant will shortly be applied for.  On the Morning Star (Fairmont Gold  Mining Company) a whim has been  erected, and the sinking of the shaft is  being proceeded with.  , The Rotherhaui stables were busy last  Saturday packing a cable up to the Tam-  arac mine, it was a seven-eighths of an  inch one, weighing 800 pounds, and measured 000 feet long. , Tt was by no means a  small undertaking and four horses were  employed.   Canadian Paciilc Railway Earnings.  Canadian Pacific Railway Company's  earnings lor October, 1S0S, were: Gross  earnings. $2.088,7.0: working expenses,  $1.4:52,8;"); profits, $1.2:15,81;.. In October.  1807, the net profits were : $1,11-1.7.58, and  for the ten months ended the thirty-first  of October, 1808. the figures are as follows:  Gross earnings, $20,0|:-J,:J0:J; working expenses, $12,827,011: net profits, $8,1 !.").7.~��2.  For the ten mouths ended the .1st of October, IS07. there was a net profit of  $8,000,580. Tlie decrease in net profits  over the same period last year is therefore  for October $'158,80'-! and from January 1st  to October -Hst there was an increase of  $55,10.'!.  A Mining Yarn Which Admits of Everything  Save Satisfactory Proof.  The story of the lost rocker of the northern goldfields is one of the romances of  that country, and. as is the same in almost every mining camp, there are many  who will brave all sorts of dangers in the  hope of finding this fabulously wealthy  spotvrather than spend their time_in the  'more prosaic but much more certain process of developing.claims of assured richness. The history of this lost discovery is  variously reported in' Juneau, which- is  the home of the story, but the one which  is generally accepted and which sent  Thos. H. Jones and Col. Hughes, out in  search  of the spot was as follows :  Several years ago an Indian  came into  Juneau,  very much exhausted by privation and hardships and by  the disturbed  state of  his  mind, induced  by brooding  over a crime he had  committed,  and for  which he gave himself up to  the authorities there.    His story, which fired the ambition and lust of gold in all who heard it,  was-one which is sometimes  encountered  between   the   yellow   covers   of   a  clime  novel, but seldom indeed  in  actual  life.  He stated that far back among the mountains beyond   Long Lake he has discovered a claim of such wealth that iu three  clays he had taken out of  it gold to the  amount  of $20,000.    .He   and   his   squaw  were  working   diligently   at   the   claim  when one day a white  man   visited their  camp ttnd ingratiated   himself  into their  friendship.   With  the paleface the red-  skiu shared  the story of  his discovery,  and  the  two  set  to  work, to further explore its richness.   All went  well till the  Indian conceived a distrust of  his squaw  and  of  her relations   with   the  paleface  guest, and  one  morning, returning from  the claim, the white man having feigned  sickness,   he found  his  worst  fears confirmed   and    the   unfaithfulness   of   his  squaw demonstrated before his  eyes.    In  a rage he seized his rifle, and, first killing  the woman, he dispatched her paramour  with a rifle bail.    Overcome by the enormity of his crime, aud unable to bear his  secret, he packed up his gold, and, tramping  fhrungh  to  Juneau, told   his tale to  the authorities, at the same time exhibiting bags of yellow dust as  a  proof of at  least part of his story.     The aggravation  to which the man had been subjected was  considered sufficient to condone his crime,  and he was allowed to escape unpunished.  I-'*.   ��*apid 1 j*   pined   away    however,  and  al ter describing as accurately as possible  the location of the mine, lie passed away.  It was a rough plan made from   the Indian's description of the spot that colonel  Hughes and Mr. Jones set out from  Atlin  lake last summer to see if they could not  discover the rocker which  had   been deserted when the Indian's happy home had  been wrecked  by  the  ingratitude of hi-  guest.    Between three  and four hundred  men,  they knew, had   preceded them  in  search of the same locality, but in a country of such extent they knew  that the  late    explorers    enjoyed    almost    equal  chances with the pioneers.    The location  of  the  mine,  according   to  the   Indian'-  story, was close against a glacier, at the  foot of an extinct volcano, and the route-  to it lay along Surprise and  Long lakes.  The travelers set out in a canoe, aud some  distance    up   Surprise   lake   found   four  others bent ou the same errand.    Reaching the bead of Surprise they portaged to  Long lake, and passed up its entire length,  about 70 miles.    The directions of the discoverer were that after reaching the foot  of Long lake they were to paddle along  its base, passing the moutlis of six creeks.  Upon reaching the seventh they were to  ascend it, and by following it they would  find the long lost rocker and the deserted  mine.  After a laborious journey along the  foot of the lake the mouth of a seventh  creek was at last gained, and the travelers pushed the nose of their canoe against  its waters. Buckbrush grew thickly on  the banks and interlaced their arms across  the stream, aud for three days and a half  the little party toiled against the current,  the task being rendered doubly difficult  by reason of the inturning brandies. At  tlie expiration of that time they came to  where the creek-forks, one branch leading  off to the left and the other to the right,  inclining toward Surprise lake. Some  hesitation was felt as to which stream  should be followed, but tlie fact that provisions were running short and that the  right branch bore them nearer to their  base of , supplies decided the question.  This branch was followed some distance  until the travelers saw looming before  them the glacier and the volcano, with  its smoke enveloped crown.  Here the party spent three days in  prospecting. Col. Hughes aud Mr. Jones  climbed the precipitous sides of the volcano, notwithstanding the protestations  of their comrades, who insisted that it  was still active, L'pon reaching the mouth  of the crater they found, that it was extinct, and that the topography of the  country corresponded closely with the description given by the Indian. Thus reassured, they prosecuted the search for  three 'days, but ^-without finding any  benches of extraordinary richness, arid  through the failure of supplies they were  forced to abandon it.  Mr. Jones, who is now at 'Victoria  with one of his partners, W. 1).  Kinsloo, is, however, by no means satisfied that the lost rocker is nothing more  than a myth. Although he did not find  the Aleouda for which he sought, yet a  foot below tin: surface he got seven or  eight colors to the pan and oi'sufficient  proportions to rattle in the dish. Next  year he  and   Dr.  Kinsloe, together with  Col. Hughes, will take pack horses and  push onward to the spot, and are confident that a diligent search in that region  may yet reveal benches of such richness  and extent as to clear the memory of the  Indian of being a copper colored Munchausen.  THE   AINSWORTH   DISASTER.  The  Board of Trade will Probably Take Steps  to Ensure an Investigation.  It is not unlikely that the council of  the South Kootenay board ,of trade will  ,take up the matter of the wrecking of the  steamer Ainsworth, whereby nine men  lost their lives and considerable merchandise was deposited at the bottom of Kootenay lake.  There are many coullicting stories given  as a description of the 'accident which  call for a very careful examination. It  was generally understood that the  steamer Ainsworth was not a safe boat,  and now that the accident has happened  there are, of course, many who affect surprise that the steamer was allowed to run  and carry 'passengers. An investigation  would determine whether the loss of the  steamer and the attendant loss of life  was a calamity which might have been  avoided or whether it was one of those  accidents which sometimes overtake seaworthy vessels.  From the accounts which have come to  hand it is not clear whether the wrecking  of the steamer was due to overloading, to  the leaky condition of the hull or to stress  of weather,though it is likely that all three  causes contributed to the disaster. Of  the eight or nine men supposed to have  been drowned, none of the bodies have so  far been recovered. The passengers consisted chiefly of Italians, two of whom  are supposed to have been drowned, as  well as Charles Campbell of Kuskonook.  The members of the crew who were  drowned were: Henry Jacques, engineer,  Nelson; James McNeil, fireman. Nelson:  Joseph Davis, deckhand; Fred Parie, first  mate'*; John Gum. steward. Nelson, and  Ed Ivain, cook.  SLOCAN    MINING   NOTES.  On Monday morning the showing in the  breast of No. 1 tunnel in the J3osun was a  magnificent sight, the ore chute struck  last week having widened to 5 feet, with  20 inches of solid shipping galena. In  rhe stope, in the No. 2 tunnel, there is 18  inches of clean mineral, and it is holding  its own well. Tuesday another carload  of ore, taken from tunnel and shaft, was  shipped, making .six during November, or  an aggregate of 120 tons. New Denver's  big mine is proving a stayer.  Jt. I. Kirk wood and Frank Wells are  pushing development on the Ohio, on  Ten-mile creek. They will have their  tunnel, which is being driven in ou the  Arlington lead, timbered this week, and  will then drift ahead for the Enterprise  lead, which cuts the big lead about 50 feet-  farther on. They propose crosscutting  a Grain to either wall, the ledge being over  13 feet in width.  On the Evening Star on Dayton creek  25 or 30 men are at work under the management of Hugh Sutherland. J t is a dry  ore proposition, and is being developed  by a shaft going down on ore averaging  well over $100.    Don't Want to Offend Victoria.  News Advertiser: A redistribution  could only be carried out by taking away  one member from Victoria district and  giving another seat to the interior. We  consider such a course at the present  time would be most inexpedient. If it is  constitutional it would certainly be inexpedient and would arouse a bitter sectional feeling for which there is no occasion. When the census gives us the figures of the distribution of the population  action can properly be taken. L" 11 til then  the discus-Jon can do no good but may be  injurious.       _    On the Road to Greenwood.  Cascade Record: Mickey '.Burns, who  for the past couple of years has been  street commissioner in Nelson, wandered  into Cascade this week. Mickey gives a  very descriptive account of the picturesque scenery along the line of the Spokane Falls Ac Northern, the only objectionable feature in his trip being, he  asserts, that he had to gut oil' the truck  when the train cume along. He is making  his way through to Greenwood.  Martin Wins the First Round.  Chief justice McColl on Wednesday refused, with costs, the application on the  part of Mr. Deane to dismiss tho petition  of Hon. (Ieorge M. Martin, against the return of Mr. Deane as member for Mast  Vale. Consideration of tlie application  for change of venue to Kamloops was deferred, and before it comes up an examination of the ballots will be asked for.  To Relieve the Party's Pocket Book;  It would be a great move to make every  Liberal candidate in the bye-elections a  minister without a portfolio, and so relieve the awful strain on the pocket books  of the wealthy standard bearers of the  grand old party.

The full court on  Wednesday allowed  the appeal in the case of Peters vs. Sampson. ' This  was a  case  in   which  mining  men  throughout  this district .were very  much in! crested, since at the trial of the  action in this city it was held by the chief  justice,   that  a certain   order  in  coiiin il  passed by the Turner executive wa*, uilia  vires, and  that the  plaint ill's  who  took  advantage  of  the conees.-ions conferred  by it thereby forfeited  their right to the  mineral claim in question.  v. A mineral claim called the "Gold Cure."  owned by the plaintiff,   was  located J2(h  August and  recorded  2-ird August, .ISO").  The  assessment  for  the   first  year   was  clone  within   the time  but  was   not   ie-  corded until the 2(5lh of   the month.    The  "Bismarck,"  owned   by  the defendants,  'was  located  7th  October,   IS00, in  ignorance   of   the   "Gold   Cure"   claim.     The  ground common  to botli  claims  was the  subject  of  the action.    By an   order-in-  , council  of' 2nd July, J SIMS,  after reciting  that owing to the lateness of the season  the depth of snow in  the  mountains prohibited many holders of claims  from performing the assessment work required ly  the Mineral Act during each  year, it was  in  pursuance of  1*1:3 of  the act provided  that "It shall be lawful for the gold commissioners throughout the province to 1 x--  teud the time for a period of 00 days. :o  date from the 17th day  of July,   1S00. for  the completion of the assessment work oil  such mineral claims as  the  gold commissioners have good cause to  believe are.at.  this  time inaccessible in  consequence of  the depth of snow  that covers the said  claims."    In August,   1S00,  the  gold commissioner of the district, acting under t he  order-in-conncil on the plaintiff's application,  extended  the  time  for   doing   the  assessment   work   which   had   not   bet-m  completed   to  the  17th  September,   1S00.  The work was actually finished in time to  have been recorded  within the year, and  tho only reason given   for  the delay was  that the plaintifTs relied on the extension.  The "Gold Cure" people ad versed and began the action, which was tried in Xelson  before the chief justice, who gave judgment in favor of the defendants, and   the  plaintiffs now appeal.    The two points on  which the plaintiffs rely aud contend for  are that (1) the order in council was valid  and intra   vires and   in   accordance   with  the act, and (2) that they are  entitled  to  the benefit of section ~>3 of the act, which  provides that no free miner shall  suffer  for the act of any govei nmentofficial.  The trial judge held that under section  2-1 the act provides that if the assessment  work is not done in each and every year  tlie claim shall be deemed vacant and  abandoned, any rule of law or equity to  the contrary notwithstanding.  As many claim holders have relied on  extensions under the same order in council, the judgment of the full court will be  of great interest.  Squabble Over Dominion Creek Ground.  The first appeal from the ruling of the  gold commissioner of the Vukon has been  taken up at Ottawa in the railway committee of the house of commons. Andrew  Donnelly staked a claim on Dominion  Creek on June l.th. This claim was  staked previously by Swanson Blade, the  stakes which Blade had erected having in  the meantime been partially obliterated.  Donnelly recorded his claim ���*.& No. ol below l.'pper Discovery, and later on Blade  recorded the same claim  as No.  above  Lower Discovery, so that the fact t hut  the claims were identical was not discovered by the gold commissioner for sonic  time afterwards. Donnelly erected a  cabin on his claim and commenced excavation. Blade subsequently resigned his  right to the location to Lucille Elliott,  who in turn assigned it to a Mr. Nelson.  The gold commissioner decided in favor of  Donnelly, and Nel.-on appeals.  Must Have Good Teeth.  The -.pecial public school committee of  Toronto, which was -appointed to consider means for remedying the condition  of school childrens teeth, has decided to  petition tlie legislature to give to school  boards power to insist on the production  of a dentist's certilicate for children before admitting I hem to the schools, and.  to have an examination of the teeth of  children in the, schools. Tlie solicitor, in  a lengthy communication lo the board,  thought "l his the course to pursue. He  will confer with the minister of education  and later prepare a bill.  Economy in Coke Making.  The establishment of a large electrical  power plant, to be run by gas engines  and to utilize the surplus gases from the  by-product coke ovens, at Dunbar. Fa.,  has been propoted,''and there is no reason  why it could not profitably be done in a  district where there is a demand for  power. The suggestion is worth serious-  consideration from coke-makers elsewhere. Power, considered as a by-product of the coke-oven, may in many cases  bean important and profitable one.  Will Not Move to Sayward.  For .some days past the rumor has been  current that the British American Corporation, which recently secured the North-  port smelter, intends to move the plant  to Sayward and to do all its smelting operations ou this side of the line. Fdwin  Durant. the ollice manager of the corporation, denies that the corporation has  any such idea in view.  -fflfc  ���  ^v_^S_-^^^  ���?."-__ "I**:- V'" ��'j. .-*_: KWJ.A*. s-._-.>*-.V.."-^v_ j-;. v-a/i-i-V---������..'���-. - '���: *-*���- ���"'���r -T ;--**��� * -7 '  ���?.?} il-.V. -���>/f/���r'-.-i'i*' :* -Pi" j.-.'

O'Brien in .his "Life of Parnell"  just published, tells this story of Parnell's  extraordinary insolence and coutemp-  tuousness towards individuals and tlie  public.    When the lord  mayor of Dublin  was  presenting  him   with   the  " Parnell  lumbio ascertained what rights they have  and made up their minds to stand up together for them instead of shouting in  gleeful chorus whenever one of their number is caught in  the toils of proceedings  for contempt of court..  Tribute." a cheque for ��37,000 raised by  the Irish people in recognition of his services to the nation, Parnell interrupted  the lord mayor as the latter began his  congratulatory address, saying, "1 believe  you have a cheque for me." The astonished lord mayor said he had. "Is it  made payable to order and _ros--cd ?" The  lord mayor again said "Yes," and was  ,..���.. ; ,      . . .      ,.,,.        , ���.   ..       about to resume his speech when  Parnell  "���*-��������.  | to  physicians  in  dillerent  parts  ol   the    took tho cheque out  of  the  lord mayor's  hand,   folded   it and   pur.  it in   his  vest  pocket.

The Japanese ambassador does not like the statute in question, and it is said   that efforts are being  made to secure its disallowance.    That it  will be disallowed does  not  follow.    The  provincial     legislature    has   simply   announced that for the future no set of men  will be authorized by act of parliament to  construct any  public  works  or carry on  any  bii-*iiie.->-*  except  upon   the condition  that they will not employ any Chinamen  or  J a pan cm-*.    This  legislation   expresses  the feeling of the people of  this province  upon the  subject  of  the  employment of  Chinese  or Japan esc. aud  for this rea-*on  it is not likely  that  tlie  federal  authorities   will   disallow  it.    The   province has  taken   tlie  position  that  those  who   approach its legislature for concessions must  be prepared to make some concessions in  return.    In return for such advantages as  they   icceive   from   incorporation,   they  imi.-it  undertake   that   there  shall   be   no  (Jliine-e or Japanese  employed   by   them.  It is  a   fair contract,   and   now   that the  province lias a government that  is favorable to the cause of labor there will be no  conniving at.  Victoria   with   disallowance  proceedings  at Ottawa.    Labor stands a !  chance   for' a    fair   shake,   something   it i  never had heretofore. j  1 Ci. A. Hi;kk, the defeated candidate in  Alberni. says that it will be dead easy to  defeat Neill in the approaching by-election in that constituency. Tn making  this announcement Mv. fluff is somewhat  severe upon himself. Tn the last contest  the general feeling upon Vancouver Island was that the Turner government  would be sustained. Huff was the government candidate in Alberni against  Neill, but the electors of Alberni gave the  opposition candidate a big majority over  I Iu IT. To make the defeat of Neill easy  it will therefore be necessary to secure  some opposing candidate other than Huff.  Titionio should be an investigation into  the circumstances connected with the  wrecking of the steamer Ainsworth on  Tue.-day evening, by which nine men lost  their lives. The general opinion is that  the Ainsworth was unsafe, and should  not have been allowed to carry passengers. On her last trip from Nelson the  steamer was said to be leaking so badly  that a-deck hand who had shipped at Nelson left the bout at Pilot Bay.  Reduced Postal Rates.

CUli l.KN'T RATIO OF INTERK-ST PAID  REPUBLIC   OF   SAN   MARINO.  Few visitors to'Italy ever make tlie excursion from L.imini to San Marino, the  smallest independent republic* iu Europe,  ..although it is one of the most curious  places iu Italy, if not in Europe, for it has  maintained itself as a republic ever since  the earliest times of Christianity. San  Marino, which lias tin area of thirty-three  square miles, lies between tlie provinces  of Forli and Pesaro-Urbino, and is thus  entirely .surrounded by Italian domains.  It is situated on part of the eastern spurs  of the Apennines. Monte Titano, the central and culminating summit, has three  peaks, each surmounted by it castle. Tho  coat of arms of the republic is three feathers, which seem to have been suggested  by these rocky summits with their Fortresses. The city of San Marino, the capital, has 1.(500 inhabitants out of the S.000  of tho republic. It is one ol' the most picturesque place.-- in the world, being  perched on perpendicular cliffs, and when  looking at them one can understand that  tlie extraordinary mountains and rocks  introduced into the backgrounds of the  paintings of 1'erugino, Raphael and other  umbriau painters were not nightmares,  hut were really taken from nature. 13or-  go di San Marino, at die foot of the cliffs,  is the commercial centre of the republic,  and here visitors find the money coined  by it. From the castle there is a magnificent view of the Adriatic, and on a  clear day even the coast of Dalmatia may  be seen." Jt is said chat when the mail  arrives at Borgo a bell is sounded, and  those who live on the cliffs have to descend to get their mail it." they wish it, for  owing to the primitive state oL' affairs  the   postman   never   ascends   the    rock.  It may well be asked how it is that such  an anomaly as the microscopic republic is  allowed to exist in the heart of monarchy.  The history of San Merino is an interesting one. The first authentic document  dates from 8S5. The . inhabitants purchased territory .from neighboring princes  and the commonwealth assisted Pope  Pius II. (Aeneas Sylvius) against the  Malatestas of Rimini, and as a reward received three little castles. On the annexation of Urbino to the states of the church  in 1031, the independence, of San Marino  was acknowledged. Iu 1797 Napoleon decided to preserve the small republic, and  in'lSiii 'Napoleon III. saved it from the  designs of* Pius IX. When Italy became  unified, San Marino obtained excellent  terms.....      . ...  It is governed by a great council of (>0  members, 20 nobles, 20 burgesses, 20 rural  laud owners, named for life by the council  itself. From this body is elected the  council of twelve, which, with a legal adviser, decides all questions. Two captains-  regent, elected every six months, represent the state, which has also its home  secretary, its minister of foreign affairs,  its chancellor of the exchequer, its army  of 950 men, aud a regular budget. By  treaty with Italy, San Marino receives, a  certain proportion of the Italian customs  revenue, but exacts no customs on her  borders. She also agrees not to grow  tobacco, but is allowed to import tobacco  duty free.  in order to avoid copyright difficulties,  there is no printing press in San Marino.  It is a curious fact that the commissary  judge and the physician must both be  strangers and they are paid out of the  public purse. Such are a few of the  curious facts connected with the smallest  independent republic in.Europe, or the  world for that matter.  Compressed Air as a Motor.  Compressed air as a motive power is  running neek-and-neck with electricity.  10. P. Ford, a Pittsburgh mining engineer,  read a pa.per before the Coal Operators'  Association of America a few days ago  which dealt very thoroughly wilh the advantages possessed by electricity tind  compressed air, respectively. "Most'of  our engineers," says Mr. .Ford, "frankly  admit that'the electric motor is not an  economical machine where the use of  power is to be variable and intermittent,  it being essentially ti constant speed machine. If we so block an electric motor  that it cannot move a considerable current of electricity will run through with-,  out doing any work, while a compressed  air engine wastes no, air ...or energy in  starting, for air only escapes with piston  movement." Mr. Ford then proceeded to  discuss the remarkable progress, made by  compressed air : "The last few years have  witnessed a very remarkable development  of compressors and compressed air apparatus, due, no doubt.'quite largely, t.o the  active competition of electricity in the  many fields where the power is used. The  great improvement made iu compressors,  together with reduced cost, had led to  their more extensive adoption and the  enlargement of their uses.    In all respects  its progress has fully kept pace with that  of electricity. The compressor, people  are now called upon to ..design and construct machines to develop heat and produce cold,.to move air with a force only  sufficient to press gold into a sensitive  tooth, and to blow shot from a cannon.  There is hardly a department of any large  shop or manufactory that cannot, testify  to the remarkable economies that this  power, ingeniously applied to various  machines, has established. There are not  less than 200 distinct and established uses  of compressed air���to 90 per cent, of  which electricity is inapplicable, and in  the remaining 10 per cent., constituting  the field open more or less to the other  agencies besides air and electricity, we  find air generally has the advantage.'" It  may be added that the cars on the Third  Avenue railroad of New York are now  run entirely bsr air, and, according to its  president, " they have been easily handled, started, stopped and reversed," in  fact, the system has many'good points  and few drawbacks.  CROSS-EXAMINED   IN ' RHYME.  Lawyer Mix*abeau L. Towns   Widens the Field  of His Poetic Gifts.  Counsellor Mirabeau L. Towns, of  Brooklyn, has frequently summed up iu  rhyme, but it is not recorded that until  last week he ever-cross-examined a witness in rhyme. The witness did not for  some time recognize the-fact. Justice  Frederick E. Ward, who presided, first  noted the counsel's effort, and then the  jurors discovered it; but the witness, intent upon his expert testimony, seemed  for a long time totally unconscious that  the questions rhymed with each other.  This appeared to amuse the jurors still  more.  Having succeeded so well in the cross-  examination, Mr. Towns determined to  do his summing up in similar fashion,  utilizing verbatim where possible the  carts of the examination which the rhyming had been most effective. The appreciation his effort met with was manifested-after the conclusion of the case  when .Justice Ward honored the poet  with a request that the lines be dedicated  to the court, tind the jurors each asked  for a copy.  The case was that of Bridget Langin, a  young woman who was iujured at the  JBrooklyn end of the bridge on the night  of November i. 189-J, when she fell between  a car and the station platform on leaving  a,bridge train., ft was the third trial of  the case, which has already been through  the court of appeals. It is stated that the  law in the case was Settled, and that the  issue was really' merely a matter of the  assessment of damages. The chief feature of the trial was the expert testimony  of two opposing physicians, Dr. John G.  Johnson, a witness for the plaintiff, and  Dr. Thomas W. Topham, for the defence.  Their testimony was flatly contradictory  as to the injuries of the woman and their  effect upon her. The jury made their  choice, and awarded the plaintiff $10,000  damages. It was Dr. Topham's stethoscope that furnished Mr.Towns with the  inspiration for his rhyming cross-examination. The doctor had been emphatic in  his declarations that the woman was not  injured, 'declarations-based upon an examination he had made of her, although he  acknowledged that she had told him  where she was in pain and had winced  under his touch. But the fact was settled, he said, by the stethoscope, which  showed that she was sound, and which  could not go astray.  "So you used the infallible stethoscope?" Mr. Towns asked.- The doctor  repeated that he had. "And with that  the woman couldn't cope . " The doctor  held that the testimony couldn't prevail  against it. He said that had there been  any pleural trouble he could have heard  it. "One can hear a mangled pleura  rattler1" asked the lawyer. The physician said emphatically yes.* "Hear as  plain as guns in battle? " the lawyer pursued, and the doctor assented. Perhaps  he began to be suspicious, but iu answer  to further questions as to what means he  took to hear, he said that he applied his  ear, and when Mr. Towns queried: "You  put your ear upon her breast'." he  nodded. The lawyer observed, "Surely a  most delightful test," and the game was  out. There had been, however, much  more than has here been given of the'  rhyming questioning, aud Mr. Towns embodied "the whole in his summing up to  the testimony of the cross-examination.  This is what he said to the jury.:  Kxpert, Dr. Topham. what, says he?  ** In consideration ofa modest fee  I examined the plaintiff mo-it carefully :  I found no sifjn of pleurisy.  1 saw no more than I wanted Lo sec.

Are now prepared to issue  Drafts and Letters of Credit on  Dawson City, Yukon District.  The Oiia Indians of northern Tierra del  Fuego are hunted like wild beasts. They  are shot down without question when  they are seen near the white establishments, and every big sheep station has its  men ' who keep a lookout for them. No  account is made of such as are killed.  There is practically no law in Tierra del  Fuego, aud although both' Argentina and  Chile own portions of it, the greater part  is as wild as was the United States at the  time of Columbus.  Before whites, came there were '.something like 3,000 of the Vaginitis Indians.  They were described by sea captains as a'  healthy, hardy, naked savage race. The  l_ngli.li established a mission in south  Tierra del Fuego, and persuaded them to  put on clothes. Jt is claimed that with  the wearing of the clothes came consumption and pneumonia, and this has reduced  their number to less than 500. The head  of the mission among these Indians is the  Jlev. - Thom.as Bridges, who has-a big  sheep farm in the south. Be has an.Indian settlement, where the people live iu  houses, aud where they farm oh a small  scale. ��� ,  One of the wonderful things about the  Yaghans is their language. 'With "no  means of writing they have a vocabulary  of about 10,000 words. Mr. Bridges, who  has made a Yaghan-English dictionary,  gives this as the number. The Eskimo  use, it is said, less than 10,000 words, and  Shakespeare's vocabulary contained only  21,000 words. There are only 7.200 different words in the Bible, and in all of Milton's poems you will Iind less than IS,000  words.  The Tierra del J. uego of the geographies  and encyclopjodias is a very dreary land  of snow and ice, of glaciers and rocky  wastes. Such is not the case, however.  The archipelago of Tierra del Fuego is  made up of'hundreds of wooded islands,  mostly mountainous, but a few of which  have valleys and plains covered with rich  grass, on "which sheep and cattle grow  fat. The chief island is Tierra del Fuego  proper. It is half as big as Ohio, and it  now supports hundreds of thousands of  sheep. The best lands of the Chilian part  of it-have been taken up within the past  few years under leii.se from the Chilian  government. The Argentine portion is  not so well settled, owing to the difficulty  of access and the uncertainty as to boundary.  Tierra del Fuego has been called the  Klondike of South America. So far, however, there is no justification of the term.  There is plenty of gold, but up to now no  large quantities have been discovered,  and that found is difficult to mine. The  gold is all placer gold.- Some of.it is in  the shape of nuggets as large as marrowfat pens, but the'greater part of it is in  leaflets or scales. The most of the mines  are in the southern part of Tierra del  .Fuego proper and the islands adjacent.  The gold is found on the shore, the clay  containing it running down under the  water and being exposed only atlow tide.  The gold is covered'with shingle tind  sand, which must be removed before bed  rock is reached. At the Slogget Bay diggings, for instance, there is six fe-!fc of  sand and gravel above the bed rock. This  has to be shoveled off, and when the tide  comes in the gold-bearing clay 'is again  covered. Almost similar conditions exist  at the washings on the island of Nayarino  and elsewhere. There arr only a ���'-few-  places where gold has been found in auy  quantity, and these are nothing in com-  parisou'with the' great gold deposits of  the Western States and British Columbia.  There are two or three companies who  work sluice boxes with machinery, pumping the water from the sea aud gathering  the gold dust with machinery on copper  plates. The most of the mining, however  is spasmodic and uncertain. The territory is extremely difficult to reach, and  ,the prospecting is coupled with hardships  and expenses in the way of getting supplies.      ',, -  Sir John,Won the Wager.  John Ashtou tells the story of a quaint  wager in his recently published " History  of Gambling." Sir John Lade, for a  trifliug wager, undertook to carry Lord  Cholmoudeley on his back from -'opposite  the Pavilion at Brighton twice round the  Steine. Several ladies attended to be  spectators of this extraordinary feat of  the dwarf carrying the giant. When Jiis  lordship declared himself ready, Sir John  desired him to strip. " Strip ! " exclaimed  the other; "why,-surely you promised to  carry me in my clothes !" "33y no means,"  replied the baronet, "I engaged to carry  you, but not an ounce of clothes, so, therefore, my lord, make ready, and let tis not  disappoint the ladies."   The peer paid up.

The com pan v has an authorized  capital stock of $20,000,000, of which $'���>,-  000,000 is preferred stock, to receive 7 per  cent cumulative dividends, and the remaining $1.1,000,000 to bo common stock.

Anew danger to England-has'appeared  under the souchcrn cross in South Africa.  However the world may talk of-universal  peace,- however fast may be the progress,  of-an offensive and defensive alliance between Great Britain and the Anglo-Saxon  race in other hinds, it is different in South  Africa. When the Jameson raid .struck  the empire of Oom 'Paul lvruger there was  a quiet 'Irishman there pursuing the vocation of a bilker. Ilu war, an excellent  bread man, though he gave no outside  sign of-being anything else. But when  tlie war-Morns were heard this son of Erin,  Peter Gillingham by liame, threw off his  obscurity like a worn-out garment, called  on his brother Irishmen in that region,  raised a company to light the men under  the cross of St. George, and performed  services so brilliant -hat the son! of Oom  Paul warmed toward him, and he began  more and more to lean upon him for counsel, until now Oom Peter is the real-power  behind O'.-in J. aul. Thu-. while i he Jt'ish  Kitchener has been, subduing all north  Africa in the interests of Her.Majesty,  this other Irishman. Gillingham, has been  sowing seeds of distrust and rebellion  against her in South Africa. ' But the precedents are slightly against Gillingham.  The Butler that pressed the wine into the'  enp for Pharaoh was exalted, but of the  baker that had the baskets on his head  which he had filled with thanksgiving  dinner, it went tough with him, iind when  the next raid comes and Oom Peter is  forced to make an accounting to Cecil  Rhodes, things may be mightily mixed  with him, for things are going to be even  as theywere ot old���-the nation that has  the corn in tlie granaries is bound to make'  the others pay tribute. Peter may be in  clover now, but he is not going to arrest  for so long as twenty minutes the conquest of Africa or the stretching of a railroad from Egypt to the southern cape.  Imperial Postage.  Mr. Mulock does not believe in allowing  art to conflict with patriotism. The designs for the new Imperial penny, postage  stamp which were submitted to him by  the artists did not -satisfy his Imperial  idea. "Then he sat down," says the  Globe's Ottawa correspondent, "pencil in  hand,' and roughly sketched on paper  what he wanted, after which he passed it  over to on artist, that the lines might be  skillfully and symmetrically drawn. The  result is a design strikingly original,  artistic to the eye, and flattering to the  pride of the people of British sentiment."  The feature of the stamp is a neatly executed map'of the world, in miniature, distinguishing the British Empire from the  possessions of all other powers. The British possessions are printed in red, aud  those stand out in bold relief against a  dark background. Surmounting this instructive picture is a. representation of  the crown, underneath which is a buuch  of oak and maple leaves, symbolizing the  union of England and Canada.  Had the Gold Fever.  In western Australia in 1SSS the Malliua  goldlields were discovered by a lad in  this wise. The boy, iu picking up a stone  to throw at it crow, observed a speck of  speck of gold in it and reported it to the  nearest resident magistrate. This gentleman was so excited at the news that he  telegraphed to the then governor and  (stated that a lad picked up,a stone to  throw at a crow, omitting to say, in his  excitement, "iind saw gold iu it." So the  governor wired these words: "What  happened to the crow?"  Made a Mason in Bed.  In Richmond, Virginia, the Lie v. Dr.  Moses D. J Logo, D.D., has been initiated  into the Masonic order while confined to  his bed with a broken rib.' "Dove Lodge"  marched to his re-idence, headed by the  Grand Master of Virginia, Judge Jt. T. W.  J Juke, jr., aud the degrees were conferred  while Dr. iloge sat up in his bed. He  made,an address after the ceremony to  the 'masons gathered in the room. It is  the first time the honor of conferring  masonry in., this manner ever,took place  in Virginia.  The Governor-General's Titles.

Don't Bother about Canada.  As to the prospects of a, successful isnte  from the negotiations between Canada  aud the t-nited States, the ("lobe correspondent stiys the people of Canada can  hardly understand the feeling of absolute  indifference toward Canadian affairs that  one continually encounters 1 r, may  bethought that this indifference i.s the  result of tin* present stress and strain on  public men following upon the war, and  that with the sett lenient of the terms of j  peace the Canadian negotiations will be- j  come a matter of general interest.    Noth- j  life the dominion of Canada does not exi.st.  Canada may be the next door neighbor,  but it is not on his visiting list. It would  be agreeable to say that Americans take  an interest in our affairs and know something of our development, bur. if a small  official circle wlin-e duty it is to look into  Canadian questions be excepted, the governing class at Washington knows nothing a.bout us, anil does not want to know.  Liberals Don't Want McCarthy.  Leighton McCarthy is not altogether  acceptable in North Simcoe. Although  his surname is tlie same as his great  uncle's he is not the same, you know.  The executive of the Liberal Association  tried to give the young man a clear field,  the understanding being that D'Alton  McCarthy's nephew would vote with the  government at Ottawa. But the majority of the local Liberal association would  have none of him, and at Stayner last  week they met and elected a candidate,  in spite of a dissuasive speech from.Tamps  Mi-Mullen, Af.P.P. The candidate is  .lames Martin, merchant, of New Lowell.  Dividends of Canadian Banks.  Thursday was dividend day at many of  the Canadian banks, when the half-yearly  dividends are paid.
