NELSON  BRIT]  SH  COLUMBIA.  SATURDAY,  SEPTEMBER 10, ISDN.  'TWO   DOLLAES A YEAR.  CARIBOO    CREEK   PROPERTIES  A Section Which Up to the Present Has Received Scant Attention  Marry Hush of .Vancouver, after a trip  up Cariboo creek gives an interesting  account of the work now being done to  develop Llie prospects which have been  discovered during the past three years,  but which i'or lack of transportation  i'ucilibies have received but little attention  from outside capita lis!-;. Among the  more likely claims on (ho creek are the  Columbia 'Caribou, Black Mess, Ocean  Wave, Trio, Silver Queen, Hailstorm,  Gibraltar. Promosiora, Winnipeg and  Eureka.  The Columbia Cariboo is about .seven  miles from Burton City. This properly  cousists of three claims. The location  was made on a lead of rose quart/', carrying galena and carbonates and running  high in gold from tho surface. A shaft  has been sunk on the ledge, the width  of eight feet of solid quart/, being maintained, but at depth the gold values improve. Open cuts have been made along  the outcrop. A tunnel now being driven  will intersect the ledge at considerable  depth. When this is accomplished, drifting on the ledge, both east and west, will  be commenced aud connection made with  the shaft. The vein matter is a desirable  'fluxing material much needed by theTrai)  smelter, as it will mix well with the  Rossland ores and is at present much  needed. Assays made from samples taken  from different points give returns of from  $12 to $-10 per ton from the surface.  On tlie Black Bess very little work has  been done so far, although the vein matter shows in considerable bodies in  various parts of (lie claim. The vein is  coin posed of iron aud steel galena, the assays showing good results in gold and  silver.  The Trio consists of tliree claims, and a  quartz ledge has been uncovered through  two claims, showing a width of four feet,  carrying galena and gold assaying from  ���I* 10 to $00. A number of men are pushing  work sinking and tunneling, and ore will  be .hipped to the smeller at an early date.  The Silver Queen, better known as the  Maxwell group, cousists ot six claims. On  tho surface the vein shows a width of 1-t  feet, consisting of iron impregnated with  ��� steel galena, assaying Iron: $.">0 to $-100,  principally in silver, but carrying from  $10 to $12 in gold. Drifting shows the  ledge to average eight foot, of which three  are'solid,ore. Another parallel vein has  been discovered three feet widp, assaying  from $30 to $200 in silver and gold". A  shipment of picked ore was sent to tlie  .Hall Alines some time ago, which gave re-  tu r n s o f o v c r $2.10.  Deal for the Iron Mask  The Gooiierham-Biaekstoek syndicate  has a deal pending for the purchase of  the Iron Mask property which adjoins  the War Eagle and Center Star. Jt is  said that the deal calls for the payment  of one dollar for theI stock'which is upou  a basis of $1,000,000. The heaviest holders  of Iron Mask stock are the members of  the Spokane railway syndicate, J. F.  Herrick, Austin Corbiu, D. C. Corbin and  ��� E.J. Roberts of Spokane. Rumors of the  contemplated purchase have sent Iron  Mask stock up.  Rich Find on Davis Creek  A late find of great importance is reported from the head of Davis creek in  the-.Slocau. Sample assays run high.  Some galena appears in the lead which  assayed 00 ounces in silver. A picked  sample ran $SJ'02 in free milling gold,  while an average from the lead taken  over .2,000 feet $20.40 in gold. The property is known as the Edris group,  consisting of live claims, located August  IH, and is owned by II. M. Richardson,  R. Pollock, R. J. Stinson and James  Lathem.  Byron's Lucky Strike on the Congo  Frank L. Byron has -made a great strike  on the Bristol claim in the Congo group,  in which he .purchased a two-thirds interest some weeks ago. He has a vein  about 12 feet wide on the footwall of  which there is a paystreak of very rich  gold ore which gives fabulous assays. As  there is considerable of this rich ore something in the way of a senational shipment  from the Congo may be expected.  Byron's luck with the Congo is the talk  of Silverton.   More Slocan Properties Secured.  W. H. Sandiford has secured control of  the Condor. -Baltimore Fraction, Iron  Mask, and Sultana, a four-mile group.  He will develop the 'properties and should  they pan oub'favorably, will buy for cash  or bond. Charles; S. Itashdail, A. E.  Fauquier and Edward Stewart are the  owners of the interest secured ���three-  fourths.   For Libelling1 the Golden Twins  Henry Hess, the publisher of the London  Critic, has been served with a writ for  libel by the New Golden Twins Mining  Company for his comments upon that  company's misrepresentations in its  statements to the investing public. That  Hess will have no difficulty in winning  tho suit i.s the opinion of every well, informed man in London.  Bi_- Strike at Moyto.  Tho   news  of the big  !2-foot strike on  the Moyie and Queen  of tho   llilis group  has been confirmed. The .strike was made  in  the  old  70-foot   tunnel  on  the north)  ledge'of the Moyie. A crosscut was being  made to the left about 30 feet'infrom the  mouth of the funnel, and a distance of  only four feet had been run when the  ledge was struck, showing 12 feet of ore.  About a year ago this 70-foot tunnel was  run. The men who ran it followed lo the  right and within a few feet of this ledge  nearly the entire distance, but never encountered it. Jfc di<1 not take Ike Williams  long to find where the blunder had been  made and set it right. r  Attorney General Martin at Nanaimo  Wliatovei'   faults   may   be  laid   at  the  door of the now attorney general   of  this  proving, it c.-i ii scarcely Im .said   that  he  lacks moral   courage.    Thi-   is   evidenced  ' by hi.s presence at the  miners* -lahor  day  celeora! ion   at    Nanaimo    on     Monday.  Attorney gener.-d Martin is smart enough  to know that in consenting to address a  miners' meeting he  would  be  obliged  to  dechire  himself in  a  measure  upon  the  questions iu dispute  between   the  white  miners and the owners of the   Dunsmuir  collieries.    He was smart enough to know  that   the   miners would not be content  with any straddling of the question, and  he knew that to meet  the miners  views  he must declare something akin  to  hostility with  a   power  which   for   several  years has dominated   the  parliaments  of  the province.    In spite of these conditions  he was bold enough to go to Nanaimo and  to assure the miners there assembled that  so long as he remained  attorney  geneial  he   would  see  to it  that the   men   who  owned the mines, as well as the. men who  worked  in   them,  would   be  required  to  abide by  the statutes of the  jirovince.  Such   an   assurance   would   be   common  place   in   almost any other  jiarb of  the  dominion, but it was nob so to the miners  who listened to the attorney general  at  Nanaimo.    For years  they  struggled  to  secure from the legislature an  act for the  regulation  of coal   mines   which   would  jirotect  their  lives  from   the dangers of  working underground with  Chinese and  Jajianese   miners.   They succeeded  only  to lind that the  government,   which   was  coerced into passing   tiie  desired   legislation, had not the courage  to enforce  ib.  J t was the knowledge of the many  ways  iu which chey had been baffled in the past  which   made  the assurance of  attorney  general  Martin    refreshing   to  them   on  Monday, aud  in passing it  may  be said  that there was a different ring to it  from  any  assurance   which   the -white  miners  ever  received   from  ex-attornev  general  Eberts.  ��� ' "  The Surprising Generosity of James Dunsmuir  When the provincial elections were in  full swing the Victoria Colonist pointed  with jiricle to the fact lhat James Dunsmuir, who was running as the government candidate in Comox where his coal  mines are located, so far respected the  rights of bis emjjloyees to think aud vote  as they jjleased, that lie continued in his  employ a man named McAllan, who had  the temerity to contest the election of his  employer. This no doubt served its  'purpose'in the campaign aud redounded  much to the generosity of Mr. Dunsmuir.  There is, however, another side to the  story which came out at the labor day  celebration at Nanaimo on Mouday,  when McAllan, the object of Mr. Duns-  mnir's wonderful generosity, made a  speech' to the assembled miners. He  showed that if not kind, Mr. Dunsmuir  was at least politic to'a certain'extent.  He did not discharge those who opposed  him till after the election. These are the  remarks of McAllan : "At the mines in  Union he is discharging from em ploy men t,  and forbidding employment to men who  were manly enough to stand on the public  platform and enunciated 'their views on  the political matters involved in the jjro-  vincial elections, and he has told them  that there is no more work for them."   ;  CONSERVATIVES   TAKE   A   STAND.  THE   OFFENCE   OF   DREYFUS  A Big Siphon Plant  A immense undertaking has just been  completed in Idaho.that means much for  the gold output of that state. For some  time jiast the Twin Springs Placer Com-  pahy has been at work on an immense  siphon plant across the Upper Boise  river. The plant is mentioned as among  the largest, if not the largest, in the world  of its kind. It is four feet in diameter  aud 1,780 feet in length. The long arm  carries the water down 380 feet. The  siphon crosses the river on a span of 100  feet long and some 90 feet high. The  water is lifted 352 feet to a point where it  enters the flume. In all the Hume and  siphon covers a distance of nine miles and  carries about 10,000 inches of water.  Fverything worked to jierfection on turning the water into the flume. The operations of this company will bo .watched  by mining nien throughout; the world and  no doubt will induce others to undertake  similar |iroj)ositions.  Three More Men Killed.  Three men were killed Wednesday by a  premature blast ou the Robson-Boundary  railway grade. The scene of the accident  was seven miles below Brooklyn, on the  contract of Vernon W. Smith, where four  men had a sub-contract. They were John  Kin near, Oscar Anderson, Tom J.an'ebau,  and Dan Ryan. The latter was the only  one who escajied when the jjrematurfc  blast went off. Two blasts were being  prepared, one of eight kegs and the other  of twenty kegs. In loading the second,  after J2 kegs had been put in, the hole became stopjied. Lanebau used an iron  spoon to clear the opening and instantly  the blast went off. Kinncar, Lanebau  and Anderson were hurled 700 feet down  the mountain'side and died but a few  minutes after striking. Ryan was thrown  hi feet and escaped without injury.  They will Contest the Next General Provincial Elections on Party Lines.  The Conservative convention held in  Vancouver last week for the jiurpose of  organizing the Conservatives of the province, was a most enthusiastic gathering  and as it was decided to divide the jjro-  vinco upon straight jjarty lines in the  next general provincial elections, considerable interest attaches fo the convention and the men who jiarticipated in- its  deliberation1-'.  From a provincial,standpoint the most  im jMrr.ant resolut ion adopted by the convention was'that jiledging the organization to take a hand in the next provincial  general election. This was moved' by  Charles Wilson. Q. C. of Vancouver, and  seconded by Hon. E. Dewdnew. The  reading of the resolution was received  with cheers and adopted. It sets out:  '"Thar, in the ojainion of this convention  it is desirable that the Liberal-Conservative party should as a party take part in  jH'ovincial elections for the jjurpose of ensuring the government and legislation of  bins jirovince on Liberal-Conservative  principles, and in order to carry this into  effect 'at the next general election for  the province' that candidates be invited  to stand for such constituencies as arc  likely to return Liberal-Conservative  members pledged jiriinarily to supjjort a  Liberal-Conservative government as distinguished from a government comj)osed  of Liberals or jiartly of Liberal-Conservatives or partly of Liberals, and that a  jjlatform or statement of jirinciples applicable to local politics be drawn up."  The election of officers resulted as follows: Honorary president. Hon. Sir  diaries Tnjiper: president, Dr. D. ii.  Wilson; vice-presidents, A. McGregor,  Nanaimo, 33. Jt. Ker, Victoria, C. Wilson,  Q. C, Vancouver, ft. McBride, M. P. I\,  New, Westminster, It. F. Green, M. JJ. I'..  Vale-Cariboo; secretary, G. Ii. Cowan:  treasurer. Hon. E. Dewdney. Jt was decided that'the other necessary offices be  filled by appointment of the executive. Jt  was also resolved that the president and  officers elected to form a committee to  draff the jjlatform of bhe party, have  power to add to their number.  "Worse Than Turner's Gerrymander.  The Liberal newsjjapers which so roundly condemned the last redistribution bill  of the Turner government, uiion the  ground nf itb inequalities, are strangely  siiont with respect to the inequalities iu  the mat tea- of provincial rei-ireseniatiou  in the federal house. .Bad as was the  Turner bill, it is a model of excellence  compared with the (present allotment of  representation in the house of commons.  In the jirovincial measure as between the  island and the mainland, the rejm.'seuba-  tion was resjiectively 13J, and 21A member.-,  or in other words the mainland section of  the jjroviuoo had virtually twice the rejj-  resentatiou of the island. Even this, however, did not satisfy tlie Liberal press,  but it has nothing whatever to say of the  federal system of representation, 'which  admits of Vancouver island retaining one  half of the entire .representation of the  province, and of the coast and island section retaining five out of the six members  allowed to the jjroviuce. As matters  stand one member is required to rejn'esent  the whole interior-of-the'province, while  five other members are crowded together  in the cities on the coast and island.  Sampson and Dewey's Prize Money.  It is estimated that tlie 'United States  government will pay close upon one million dollars to the officers and sailors in  .its-navy,as prize mouey earned in the  war with Spain. From the official report  of admiral Moutijo, commanding the  Spanish fleet sunk at Manila, there were  187.-) persons on board the ships of his  command. The Spanish fleet was of inferior force to the Amercan squadron and  rear admiral Dewey's men will get only  $100 for each person. It is estimated the  aggregate amount due the Asiatic fleet as  the result of the Spanish force amounts  to $187,500, which congress will be asked  to appropriate during the coming session.  One-twentieth of this stun belongs to rear  admiral Dewey, as commander in chief,  and he will therefore be $0375 richer than  he was before the war. Rear admiral  Sampson has realized a snug little fortune  as a result of the war. As commander in  chief of the North Atlantic fleet he will  get one-twentieth of every jjrize taken in  North Atlantic waters, and one-twentieth  of fhe heat! money allowed for tho vessels  destroyed off Santiago and in Cuban  ports, it is estimated that he.will finally  receive about $-10,000 as his share of piize  money.           Red Tape Did Not Bother Her.  In the storeroom of the hosjiital at Fort  Mycr the other day the wife of general  .Miles found a great number of boxes of  delicacies sent by friends of the injured  men, but wdiich remained unopened for  lack of authority from the war dejjart-  ment. She ripped open the boxes, distributed pajamas, jolly, tobacco, ginger,  ale, deviled chickens, and stockings until  until the wounded cheered themselves  half well. Then she went to Washington  and ajiplicd at the war department I'or  jiermissioi: to open the boxes.  Copper Finds in East Kootenay.    ,,  Some   good   cojiper-silver  ore   saiaples  are being taken out of late finds on Toby  and Horse Thief creeks.    There is an easy  trail via Argenta across the divide.  Story pi' the Arrest and Conviction of tho  Alleged Traitor  Now that the French authorities have  in deference to popular clamor, decided  to re-open the Dreyfus case, a recital of  the circumstances connected with the detection and conviction of the accused, will  doubtless be of interest.  Four years, lacking about three months,  ago Captain Albert Dreyfus was found  guilty by a French military tribunal of  selling jiluns of descriptions of French  forts and their management to a foreign  po-ver. The foreign power was then  naturally supposed to be Germany. Later  there was reason to suppose that ib was  Russia, or jierlmjis Italy. France's ally,  it was .-,aid, wanted to know how she was  fori ified against the enemy with which  she had a quarrel to the death, not being  willing to engage in a fruitless fight I'or.  lier sake. Germany denied that .she had  bought any secrets from captain Dreyfus.  Of course Russia did the same. Uj) to  this time it is not known which power  bought the secrets cajitain Dreyfus is  supposed to have sold, or, for that matter,  whether any were sold.  Dreyfus aijparently owed his conviction  to tiie fact that he was a Jew. Had  .Dreyfus been a Christian, it is said, he  would not be on Devil's island today.  Germany and J^rance may be at odds as  nations, but as peojale they are united in  their ill will towards the Jews.  The<story of the conviction, sentence  and degradation of Dreyfus was one of  the most remarkable known'to modern  military annals. Susjiicion fell ujjouhim  at first only because ho visited a resort  frequented by known spies.. He was tried  in secret and convicted on circumstantial  evidence that, as far as made public, was  not conclusive. He was the victim of a  most widespread j'lojjular resentment from  the time he was arrested, and he was  sentenced ab bhe lasb bo be publicly degraded and imprisoned for life in a  fortress, although the extreme penalty  provided by law was death, and the public  clamored for the extreme penalty.  Suspicion was first fastened on Dreyfus  about a year before his arrest. There  were clubs in Paris to which the foreign  element, and especially the Germans,  resorted. So to them were sent numbers  of war .dejaart nienb sjjies. One of the  silica found JJreyfus ;iu one of the most  noted German resotfs. It was alleged  t-lrat Dreyfus explained hisjiresence there  by saying that he wa- there to jn.ic.ice  the German language. This was deemed  sus|)icious, because .Di'cyi'ussjjoke German  jjericctly. The fact that lie was a Jew  aud found people of his own religion at  the club, instead of relieving him of susjiicion, had the reverse effect.  He was watched carefully, and in  October, 1891, was arrested. It was asserted that the jjroof of his guilt which  caused his arrest consisted chiefly of  ���copies'-of'documents which he had furnished the enemy, and which were in his  handwriting, though unsigned., It was  when this statement was made jxtblic that  the people of France became wildly indignant against the accused. His  assertion that the -incriminating--documents had been written in imitation of  his style of jjenmanship in order to screen  bhe real criminal was derided.  The next thing that hapjaened inflamed  the 'public more than ever. 'It'appeared  bhab Germany protested, under threat of  abandoning all diplomatic relations with  France, against using documents obtained  by violating the rights of the embassy.  The joeojjle thought that Germany was  interfering to save the traitor who had  benefited her, and the cry for the head of  Dreyfus was almost incessant, while along  with this arose such ��� denunciations of  Germany as threatened war within a brief  period. ' The condition of jjublic sentiment on one side and the attitude of Germany on the other seriously embarrassed  the French government, and the state of  affairs was the worse far the reason that  the cabinet was not unanimous in the belief in the guilt of the accused.  However, the trial was brought ou in  secret, so that it should not jmblicly aji-  jjear that the stolen documents were used  against the accused. Dreyfus denied his  guilt and brought experts to combat the  testimony of those who swore the documents were in his writing, but without  avail. The court, when the case was  ended,retired for an hour, and then came  back to the jjlace of trial aud unanimously declared that'the-accused was guilty  "of having given to a foreign power, or  to an agent of a foreign power, documents  concerning the nation's defenses." The  jiublic had been admitted to hear the  verdict, although Dreyfus was not  jjresent, aud when it was announced there  wore loud cries of "Vive I.'atrie."  Then the jirosidenb of the court said:  "The sentence is that captain Dreyfus be  imjirisoned for life iu a fortified jilace.'*  Dreyfus heard both-the-verdict and the  sentence in tho courtyard after the jiopu-  lace had been sent to the streets. It was  then night and he was taken to the centre  of a hollow square formed by tlie guards.  He listened in silence but with tears running down his face. This was on December 22nd, 1801.  But irujirisonmei.it for life was not all  of his punishment. On the morning of  January 2.*3th, ISO.--, captain Dreyfus was  taken to the L'.-olo '.Militaire. Beginning  before daylight on that day dot .'itch merits  of troojis had been sent thither from  every garrison about i'aris���������votm-ans.  now n-cruits and' men oi' all ranks and  grades iu tho service--until .">()(if) men  underarms had assembled. Tlui.se were  formed in a square on the jmrade ground.  Dreyfus was jmblicy disarmed, his military   insignia   torn   off,   and   his   sword  broken in the presence of a squad of soldiers aud a crowd of Parisians.    He cried  out   that   he  was ��� innocent,   but drums  drowned his voice.    He  was  finally sent  to Devil's island, off the coast of Bay en ne.  Jf is wife was not permitted to join him,  as   was   first   expected   aud   |irecautions  were   taken   which   rendered   his escape  from Isle du   Diable oub of the question.  Nevertheless, about, two years ago a story  obtained   circulation   that   Dreyfus  had  escajied fi-oni  the island  through  the instrumentality of his devoted wife, who  was known t,o have gone to Cayenne, and  found refuge in this country.    That  this  story should have obtained  belief seemed  absurd, in view of the fact that the jioor  Jew  on   Devil's  island  was more closely  guarded    than    was    Najioleon    at   St.  Helena.    No  boat   or vessel was allowed  to aj)|jroach  within fifteen cables of the  island, which is about twenty-seven miles  northeast of the town of Cayenne.   The  island  was formerly a leper settlement.  Dreyfus has been for three years its chief  if not its only  prisoner.    A  dozen  other  Frenchmen are made miserable in order  to keejj hitu there.    The climate  is  lirob-  ably the worst in the world, and it is supposed  Dreyfus' accusers   hoped it would  drive him to suicide.  oThe woj-ld, if nob France, might jjer-  hajis forgotten about Dreyfus if Zola had  not taken uj) the cudgels for him last December aud challenged the verdict of the  court martial, which had "been jiresided  over by count J<lsterhazy. Zola was too  late. J3y this time it was not the guilt or  innocence of JJreyfus the Jew, but the  honor of the French army which was at  stake. The J<Yench government discovered this: hence the scant justice with  which Zola was treated.  France's most popular novelist, although  he was not in tlie academy, is now in ex-  martrydom to serve tho sentence of his  second trial because it was deemed necessary to ujihold a decision which involved  the reputation of officers of high rank in  the army. ��� One of these oflieers has ajv  parently admitted that at least one jwjier  on the strength of which Dreyfus was  convicted was forged. This is not the  famous bordereau wdiich jilayed such a  imrt in his trial, but it is evidently one of  sufficient importance to set France on fire.  NEW   DENVER   MINING-   NOTES.  EBERTS'   STRANGE   SILENCE  A. J. Marks is shipping 300sacks of high  grade galena from the California this  week, which will go to Aurora, Illinois.  At the end of the month 300 sacks more  will follow, making upwards of 10 tons in  all. On Thursday another strike was  made on this jarojierty in new workings  commenced above the main tunnel. The  ore was struck ab 10 feet from the surface  and is six inches in width, solid and high  grade. This makes four openings now  with good ore in sight.  The Bosun grouj), adjoining this town  and recently acquired by the Sandiford  syndicate, shipped a carload of ore to  Aurora, Illinois, on Thursday. A large  force of men will be kej.it employed on  this jDrojjerty and regular shipments  made. ,  All the mines in this Ideality are jire-  ])aring for large forces this winter.  Twelve huhllred men will be working  round Sandon this season, with about iOO  more in the Alamo basiu. Four Alile and  Ten Mile will also have big forces working.  The Neepawa on Ten Mile will be  worked under lease this winter, and a  force of 100 men will be employed ou the  Enterprise.  New Deuver is to have a neat aud commodious ojiera house erected at once by  J. C: Harris, who recent!_' sold the Bosun  grouj.. It will be erected on the east side  of' Bellevue avenue, just opposite the  government reserve. ..It is to be fitted up  iu the latest ajjproved manner and will  be utilized for dancing as well as for  shows. A lease has been taken on the  building," .assuring the owner a good  income.  Notwithstanding the general quietude,  New Denver has gradually gone ahead  this year, several'new buildings having  been erected. At bhe jireseut bime there  is more building in siglit than for a year  jjast. The outlook for next season is  most encouraging.  SUCCESSFUL   MINING   IN   CARIBOO  The Cariboo Gold .Fields Comjiany is  working in the bed of Williams creek  with a hydraulic elevator, and the company is so well satisfied with the jiro-  duction of the mine that it intends to put  in another elevator next season.  Ivobert Hunter. iJie engineer in charge  of the Golden Cache, has built a dam near  Horsefly creek and is taking out very rich  gravel.  The Cariboo Consolidated,  which took  out about $87,000 from six weeks work  in  its sjiring run, started its fall run the first  of Sejitcniber.  On a bench ou Williams creek, directly  opjiosite Barkorville and overlooking  what were formerly  the  richest  jiioneer  diggings, tliree Chinamen are taking out  on an average of 00 ounces of coarse gold  a day. one nugget weighing 38 ounces.  They sank to bedrock on an old channel,  which is 10 feet above the jiresent channel  of the (.'reck', and has eight feet of gravel  above? it. ,'ind't.hcy are now working in a  cut. in feet wide. This strike has caused  a revival nf excitement around Barker-  villc and a number of men have taken to  jirosjiec'tiug the ujijicr benches.  Calls ;Forth an  Impatient   Protest from, Ex-  Premier Turner's Organ  The Colonist:   There is much comment  on the streets upon   the omission  of ex-  attorney general Eberts to give out anything    for publication  in regard  to  the  statement made first  by Mr. Beaven, and  afterwards by   the  lieutenant governor,  as to his advice in regard to his authority  under the revenue  law.    The  lieutenant  governor has given one version of it: Mr.  Turner, has given quite a different.version.  What   the 'jmblic   waut  to  know   from  Mr. Eberts is what advice he did give the  lieutenant governor.    As the matter  jDre-  sents itself to us,  the jjoint involved is1  not one of veracity between the lieutenant  governor   aud   the' ex-premier,   for   the  former   in   his   letter    sbates    that    the'  ex-attorney general told him that a  warrant for $15,000  for the Cassiar district  could   be   issued  without his signature.'.  His   observations   seem   to   be    directed '  wholly to that warrant.    Mr. Turner, on  the other hand,  seems to be dealing in  his remarks only with tlie warrants upon  usual routine matters.    He does not make  any reference to any advice having  been  given iu regard to the jiarticular warrant  to wdiich his honor  refers.   We submit  that    under    these    circumstances    Mr.  Eberts  has already remained  silent too  long, and that only one construction  can  be   put   upon   any   further  silence.    He  owes it to himself aud to those who have  given him their  political  support in  the  jDast, to make at once  the most exjDlicit ���  declaration possible in  this matter.   This  does not concern Mr. Eberts alone, aud he  cannot afford, and if he could his jiolitical  sujiporters cannot afford to'iiermit him,  to remain silent any  longer,   without at  letisb calling upon  him   in  unmisbakeable  language  to-defend himself against the'  sjjecific allegations made by the lieutenant  governor.   The Town of Gladstone  The town of Gladstone is the latest railway town to spring up on the Robson-  Boundary creek road. It is situated on  the cast side of Christina lake, 12 miles up  Mcltae creek, aud is located on the jpre-  emption of J'\ Forest. Already , there  arc between Io aud 20 buildings, and  nearly every branch of business is represented. ' Tho Canadian Pacific railway  tote road jmsses through the townsite,  and it is also learned that that railway  own-- half the townsite. Gladstone is in  the heart of an excellent mining section,  ail the well known jjroj^erties of bhe Burnt-  basin being tributary to it. ft lies 35  miles from (���'rand  Fork..  Tlie Business of Dawson City's Bank  The Dawson City branch of the Canadian .Bank of Commerce is at once the  shabbiest and the busiest of all the  branches of this bank. A corrugated iron  building witli its rough, scantling skeleton . painfully apparent .on the inside,  suffices for the business. The bank ojiened  for business on June 10th, and on July  10th, just, one mouth lately the bank  showed two and a half million dollars of  gold dust had jmssed through its hands.  There is no vault for the gold dust, and it  is stacked up in sacks like cordwood, and  guarded by liolice. , .  Good Strike in Columbia-Kootenay.  An 'important.- strike was'..made this  week in the Columbia-Kootenay mine at  liossland. The discovery was made in  No. 1 tuuuel, 3S0 feet from the mouth and  200 feet from the surface. The crosscut  entered the vein from the hanging wall,  and although bhe tunnel has been continued over 11 feet the footwall is not iu  sight and nothing oxcejJt solid miueral is  exposed. Nine feet of this is high'grade  ore. The yield runs in sixteen assays  from $17.80 to $112 in gold and copper.        <  Beer for the Boys at Manila.  The largest shiptuenb of beer ever made  from Vancouver goes out on the next trip  of the Emjiress of China. A whole train  load of 32 cars, each laden with Schlitz's  well-known Milwaukee beer, has arrived  by the Canadian Facific railway, and the  consignment will go forward on the Em-  jiress, sailing on Monday. The destination of the beer is Manilla, and is for the  American soldiers stationed there.  Just 22 Votes Polled at Glonora.  (Jf the thousands of electors whom ex-  attorney general Kborts says were ab  Glenora waiting to cast tlieir ballots in  the reccnts elections, and whose |iresence,  he said, just.ilh.nl the government in allowing 200 voter- two nMir^-entatives, just  22 jiollcd their vot^s. It will bo interesting to hear the defence of the former  attorney general when this matter conies  uj) in the legislature.  Secure Control or the Iron Horso  The Mackay syndicate is credited with  having 'purchased 883.000 shares of the  Iron Horse .Comjian'v's stock at 8 cents.  There were I.OOO.OOffsharos issued by the  company so that; the .Mackay syndicate  jiractically owns the projiorly. The jittr-  chaso was made by George I'funder for  the Mackay jicopk'.  Another Silverton Don!  George If. Dawson, who has had a 30  day option on the Essex and Iv.linburg  mineral claims, this week took uji the  ojifion and jiaid cash for the jirojierty.  This pro|ierty is situated next to the  projjerty of tho Wakefield Mines, limited,  and without doubt has fin.' same vein.  m  MM  Fi-'iffSviS  iSi THE TUIBUNJ-  JN  KLSON,   B.C.

ISIS  Tut:   News-Advertiser,   of   Vancouver,  acids to the complications of tlie jiolitical  situation  this   week by   repudiating the  action of the Conservative convention in  pledging-the Conservative jjarty to conduct the next general jirovincial elections  uyon straight jjarty lines.   This  will no  doubt come as  a  snrjjrise to  the jjarty  managers,  as  the   News-Advertiser   has  I'or years been  regarded as the organ of  fhe Conservative jiarty in this province,  being edited  by  lion.   P. 0. Cotton,   the  present   minister   of  finance  in   premier  Scmlius    cabinet.     Jnst    what    motive  prompts  the   finance   minister to  adopt  this course  is   probably  known  only  to  himself,   but   anyone  who lias  followed  liolitics very closely may make a pretty  good guess.    It is  not so  very  long ago  since the Liberals of the province met iu  Xew   Westminster.   At  this . convention  the  Bostock   clique  made a  determined  effort to decapitate both premier .Semlin  and finance minister Cotton, who were at  that time the central figures in the oppo-  sition to the Turner government.    That  the aim  of  these  political  workers   was  frustrated   is   generally   known,   but   it  may not be so we'll known that the men  who   were   instrumental   in   saving   the  heads of the present premier and finance  minister were their loyal J.iberal allies in  the   ojiposition   party���Thomas   Korster,  Colin B. Sword and J. li. Kennedy. Might  it  not  be  that  finance  minister   Cotton  considers that one good turn deserves another, and that he lias decided to be loyal  to (hose who were loval to him.  Tiih:   advantage   of   having   Canadian  capital interested in the mines <of.Kootenay is being demonstrated at the present  time.    So long as eastern Canadians held  aloof fi qui mining investments, the '..press  of eastern Canada j^aid little or no attention to the jjicsent requirements or future  possibilities of the district, aud in con.se-  ijuenee it was impossible for the district  of  Kootenay   to  secure any recognition  from   the, federal 'authorities  whatever.  .Vote the change which has taken place in  the attitude of the press of Toronto since  the ('codcrham-Bluckstoek  syndicate entered    upon    its   campaign   of   purchase  ��� through  the Trail   Creek   division.    Asa  result, largo companies  were formed and  hundreds-of  eastern   Canadians   became  linanciaily interested in  the progress of  tiie chief industry  of Kootenay.    The Intel ests of the people of Kootenay were.in  this way made common with the interests  ofthe ponplr: of Ontario, and the eastern  prc-s  iti   consequence  lends  a   respectful  car to the claims of this common  interest-  for consideration.    This   changed   condition account^   for the appearance in  the  Toronto   <>'lobc,   the   chief organ   of  the  federal   government, of a   plea for more  fa \-.'ii'.'  du-ir;  of Cam  the vicinity. The owners of IVIoyie could  not see the necessity of giving the railway  comjiany one-half the towmdlo,, but they  offered free right-of-way through the  town, and =uliicient ground for siding and  station. This, however, was not satisfactory to'the couijiany's agent, and the  jicnplo of .Moyie are not now so sure of  the railway as they were a few weeks  before. To most peojile it will ajijjear  . that a half interest in a townsite is a big  jji'ice to jiay for a siding to a railway  comjiany which is having its railway constructed with the money of the people of  Canada. ^_ ���   William. "Wallaci-- Burns jMcInnk.s  and Julius Caesar McLngati are both very  much worked ujj over the dismissal of  the Turner government,* and a I'lijiture  may be regarded a.s imminent. The  trouble of iMcLagau is a ^ad one. For  years his imjinrtial jicn ha^ reeled ofTan  even amount of jjrai.se for the Grit federal government and its supjioi'ters, and  for the Tory jirovincial government and  its following. It was MoLagan's life work  to make his readers believe that, neither  the concern at Ottawa nor the concern at  Victoria could go wrong. Jfis 'sorry can  therefore be imagined, when the infallible  appointee of the greatest government the  dominion ever had, chops oil" the political  head of the only statesman this jirovince  ever knew.  Tiik new provincial government is  showing in several little ways that it is  alive to the interests of the jjeojile of tlie  province. The latest innovation i.s .the  decision on the ljart of the government  to purchase the gold dust of returning  Klondykers. This work will fall within  the jjrovince of the new minister of mines,  and indirectly the merchants of Victoria  will reajj a considerable benefit as the  miners heretofore have considered it  necessary to carry their* gold to Seattle  or San Francisco, and consequently the  Victoria merchants got very little trade  out of them.   The J.iberal-Conservatives of the jirovince talked over many matters while in  convention at Vancouver last week, but  it is nowhere ou record that anything was  said of the desirability of' having a rearrangement of the provincial representation in the house of commons. Fault was  found with the action of the federal government in several matters, but not one  word was said in condemnation of an arrangement which permits the coast and  island section of the jirovince to monojio-  li/.e five out of the six members allotted  to the jirovince.  [bio legislation for the '-melting in-  ". ,-uiil for I ho jiropiM- rejii'csfjiitat.ion  aun"-. .������lai;n< under (his head before  the ii.i'i-niat.iiainl conference at Quebec  Tin-:  In i'!' a hi  owner-', of  the  townsite of .Moyie  adian  i >  ii!, nii.thoir hands wifh-the Can-  ���ilic Kail way .company. When  the. pt.'pip!e of the town were ou the [Joint  of congratulating theiiisclves ujion the  im mediate cut ry of i he (.'row' ��� Nn<l: I'ass  railwap, they locidved a visitor in the  person of the great railway corjioration's  land a_-ent, whose mission was to arrange  ! cri'iiis for t ho entry of (he railway into  tiie   town-he.     The   juojiosition   of  this  t  ie  bo  on uei's. of the (own-  railway com|iany a  fere-.;', in  tiie  ollicial was that  site should   t'ivi  clear title to ;i half intere-.;', in tin: town-  site, if t bis was nor done it was hinted  that the railway would gi��i; the. townsite  the go-by. and devote its energies to the  ti|)bttil<ling of a rival  (own  somewhere in  It is safe fo say that James McGregor,  the new inspector of mines, is the hardest-  worked and poorest jjaid official in the jirovincial civil service. When the Turner  government had this matter under consideration during the last session, both  the members from "West Kootenay expressed the ojiinion that the position was  was under-paid, but the government refused to make any change. The new  minister of mines has it in his power now  to correct this mistake of his jDredeeessor  by giving the inspector a salary at least  equal to that of a miue foreman.  Ik the Conservatives of the jsrovince  allow ex-attorney general Eberts and his  former colleagues in the Turner government to play, too prominent a jiart in  their organization, they will greatly lessen  their chances of success as a jiolitical  jiarty. The majority of the electors of  the jjrovince are tired of the ex-attorney  general and-any party which takes him  up is sure to suffer'. If the peojjle get  an idea that the newly organized Conservative 'jjarty is merely the Turner combination under a new name it will soon be  all off with the new organization.  Th ion I-: was a story circulated by- the  Colonist to the effect that ex-attorney  general I.bertsdiad started an action for  libel agaiust the. Times newsjiaijer of Victoria, on account of its comments ujjou  the ex-attorney-general's advice to ihe  lieutenant-governor with respect to (he  signing of warrants.' I_berts says that  the \vrit in the action has uot yet been  issued, and there are those who say that  the ex-atfcoruey-general has no intention  of ojiening up the late unpleasantness, in a  court of law.    Don JfAN I.)i' Bosc, the Sjjaniard. who  was ordered out of the dominion by the  federal government for making Canada  his headquarters for the conduct of a sjiy  bureau during the Spanish-American  trouble, litis entered a suit against the  dominion government for $;jOO,000 damages. The pajier.s in the case have been  served ujion Hon. Joseph Chamberlain,  colonial secretary, but here the matter  rests as this official so far has refused to  take any notice of the matter.  Tiik blood of several'members of the  W. C,. T. U., of Vancouver, i.s boiling because of the jiosting of some circus billsin  that city in which women in scant raiment  figure jironiinently, and because no one  else can see anything wrong with the  jrosters save members of the W. ('. T. f.  The latest from the scat of trouble is that  the jjosters; arc still uii and that the blood  of the jiurists is still "bilin." I  Tiik Vancouver World takes the defeat  of the Turner'government very much to  heart, and after jjouring out the bitterness of its sou! in a half column of complaint it closes with something in'the  nature of a projiheoy:- "The era upon  " which we are entering, when aclven-  " turersnnd scalawags ajrjiarently domi-  '��� nata. affairs, will end speedily and a  " return be had to the cajiable ariminis-  '" fration of tlie government of a jjrovince  " that seems to have fallen upon evil  " days."   ' '  Tnio' jjrohibition sjieakers, who arc  stuni|jing the country with ' a view to  securing a verdict from the people in  favor of prohibition, make short work of  such little difficulties as the matter of  condensation. In one sentence they  clear1 this out of the way by saying that  there shall be no condensation jiaid to  those who have invested ca|)ital iu the  liquor traffic. They say that those engaged in the traffic have'made enough  out of it to forfeit what interest they at  jiresent hold.  Tiik jieojile,of Nelson who enjoyed the  music of the New Denver brass band on  dominion day will regret to learn that the  modest seeming members of that excellent musical organization are in reality  ���'emissaries of hell." This shocking condition of things was never suspected until  the members of tho band gave an ojien  air concert in New Denver on Sunday,  when a zealous young preacher, according  to report, thus denounced them.  Tiik sub-contractors on the I.asf; Kootenay end of the Crow's Nest railway, ujion  whose work all of the harsh treatment of  navvies took jjlace, have now fallen out  with the great railway comjjany themselves. Their trouble arises out of their  aftemjjts at settling up with the great  railwaj*- comjiany. They have claims of  many thousands of dollars which tho  tlio railway com|iany will not recognize  and a big legal  battle may bo exjiocted,  Tiik date for the nomination of candidates to fill the vacancies caused by the  acceptance of office by tho four minister's  in premier Sendin'scabinet, has been fixed  for Saturday next. It is not thought that  any of the ministers will be ojijjosed, in  which event interest in provincial politics  will wane until the legislature is called  together and the relative strength oi the  two jjarties is definitely ascertained.

At the Ijiberal-Couficrvntivo convention  held in Vancouver, it was moved liy Vv".  A. jMncdonaid. .seconded by I). B. Bogle,  and carried, "tbnt. lhe'snieltiup aud re-  fininq; of our silver lead ore i.s an industry  which .should be fostered and encouraged  by niacin^ a duty on the raw product of  lead imported into Canada."  PROVINCIAL EXE  H  ii_  ���pI0.  _'  <��  fine  Toronto Globe: ^-S. corro-iiondoiit calls  attention to a very important matter  connected with the very large deposits of  lead in this country. The American tariff  contains provisions in regard to lead and  lead ore similar in purpose to the provisions regarding lumber and logs, namely,  to obtain the raw material free, to exclude the manufactured article, and to  give the United States the advantage of  manufacture. From the American point  of view this is good policy, but au intelligent self interest ought to prompt us to  counteract   it.    The   American   duty  on  lead bullion is two and one-eight cents  per pound,  or   $42.50  per  ton.    On  lead  bearing ore it is only one and  one-half  cents per pound of lead,  or $30 per ton,  and, moreover, the whole duty is remitted  in case the lead is refined and smelted  and the lead exported from the country.  The.result'of--this'astute policy is that  the merchants,   traders,    transportation  and  smelting ; companies   of  the   United  States   make   large   ,sums   of money in  in handling these Canadian ores; indeed,  it is said  that  the   smelters of  Kansas  City aud Omaha are being operated al-  very   largely   with   the   galena  ores   of  the Kootenay.    It is obviously not in our  interest that these cities should be  built  up at our expense.    We have the lead, we  have the coke, we have  every material  advantage for the production of lead and  and silver,  and under equal   conditions  neither Kansas City, Omaha nor Denver  ought-to be able to compete with smelting  establishments iu the Kootenay.    As it is  now we export  the lead ore, we buy back  the lead bullion from  our  neighbors, and  our silver is exported fco England, to China  and India.   The suggested, remedy "is that  the matter shall be  brought up at the  Quebec conference and an attempt made  to induce congress to remove the differential   duty.     If   this   is  not done  it is  urged that Canada should  meet the differential by an export duty on lead ore.  The matter is  of great interest, tmd its  importance   will  probably  be recognized  more clearly in a few years than now.  Wood. Returns from the Klondyke.  R. li. Wood, who for the past year has  been iu the Klondyke in   the interests  of  the  London and  Ii. 0. Goldfields, has  returned.    Before   leaving   for   the   north  Mr. Wood was in the employ of the company as foreman of the   Vmir mine, and  after an  experience in   both  sections  he  says he prefers Kootenay to the Klondyke.  Since his arrival in Dawson in September  last, he purchased three claims, and when  his  report   reaches   London   it   may   be  safely counted upon to  make  tlie shareholders   rather  well   pleased   with   their  venture. The properties secured by Wood  are  17 above on   Henderson  creek, .10 on  1-ldorado and .! below  on Bonanza, upon  which  he  emuloyed _l   men.     The  pay-  streak in one of these i.s four feet in width  .and  runs  all  the   way   from   10 cents to  $ 1.07 to the pan.   Subsequently he bought  a half interest in No. -! below discovery on  Bonanza, paying for it $30,000 cash.    Tlie  company has not a.s yet brought out any  of   the   dust.

Goldwitj Smith, whose temperance sympathies are well knwii, has caused dismay  in the ranks of prohibition workers by  his open opposition to tho attempt uoav  being made to fasten prohibition legislation upon the dominion. Jn an article  upon the subject he says:  ���'Where prohibition has been tried  what has been the practical result? We  have a right to ask this when we are  called upon to make what all admit to be  a very costly as well as a very critical  experiment-. We should have to sacrifice  seven millions ot revenue. A\re should'  have to kill tlie capital invested in the  trade, amounting, it. seems, to fifty millions. We should have to throw out of  work thousands-of people-directly or indirectly earning their bread by the business. We should also ha ve to seriously injure t.he growers of barley, cider apples  and grapes, ff we admitted, as in justice  we conk! hsrdly fail to admit, a .claim for  compensation, another largo item wouid  be added to account of loss. We should  have to pay for rhe additional police  necessary to guard our immense frontier  and to coerce the less settled sections of  the population, such, as the mining nd-  veutnrers of the west. We might  possibly have to coerce Quebec. We  should' further imperil the interests of  our country by proclaiming it to be under  an ecclesiastic and ascetic rule, many,  rightly or wrongiy, abhor. Without setting materia! loss against moral gain, we  are entitled to proof, before incurring a  great material ioss. that wo are sure of  the moral gain. Prohibitionists themselves, regardless as they may lie of  worldly interests compared with the  principle, would not wish to seo the cause  of lenfperance saddled with the memory  ot a ruinous failure.  '���^Massachusetts, the mode! stain ef the  United .Slates, tried prohibition for a  series of years, and gave it up, finding  that the closing of the public places of  sale multiplied the secret places; that  more liquor and worse was drunk ; and  that there was more drunkenness in Boston than ever. 'The mere fact,'says the  ���report, ������'that the law seeks 'to'prevent  them from drinking, rouses the determination to driuk in many. The fact that  the place is secret takes away the restraint which is more public and respectable places would keep them within  temperate bounds. The fact that the  business is contraband . and liable to  interruption, and that its gains . are  hazardous,'. tends "to drive honest nien  from it and leave it under control of dishonest men, who will not scruple to poison  the community -with vile adulteration.'  "Vermont, a rural state, without slums,  tried prohibition for forty years, piled,  one repressive enactment upon..another,  heaped up penalties, gave the police  power to enter auy house ������without a  warrant. The resuIt, as stated by Mr.  Edward Johnston in the Popular Science  Monthly for May, ISSt, Avas that for all  practical purposes the law was a dead  letter. There were dram shops in tlie  principal streets, and no concealment of  the illegal traffic. Nobody dreamed of  enforcing the law, as the laws against  burglary and larceny are enforced. Perjury and subornation of perjury, disregard and contempt of all law, were  practically fostered iind encouraged.  In Iowa, a correspondent of Harper's  Weekly reported that prohibition in the  cities meant free liquor. A correspondent of the New York Nation confirmed  the statement. Dr. Dio Lewis, in places  where he had been assured that drink  could not be had for love or money, saw  drunkards reeling in the streets. hi-  Iowa City he saw from To to 1.00 kegs of  beer delivered on trucks. The business  directory of Dubuque, a city of o">,000  inhabitants, comprised two breweries, Uii  hotels, 10 wholesale liquor places and hS!  saloons. Formal prosecutions were a  mere mode- of raising a tax. Druggists'  shops were turned into liquor shops, with  a few-drugs in the. window.  In Kansas, the state of governor St.  .lohn, the chosen chief of prohibition,  where the most stringent prohibition had  been enacted, the result, according to Dr.  (iardner, was that the drug stores, were  little more than rum shops, and that their  number was astonishing. In one town of  four thousand people, fifteen of them  were counted on the main street. Leavenworth, with a population of _o,0(X), had  one hundred and seventy-five places  where liquor was sold. In Kansas City  the police collected in 18S2 $-1*5,000 in fines  for illegal sale of liquor. There is a general tendency to convert prohibition,  whereit prevails, practically iutolicen.se  by taking the fees under the guise of fines.  In Tongawoxie a small town in Kansas,  where thero was no saloon before prohibition, the'C were three or four afterwards,  This is against the theory that prohibition  works well in small places, though in  large cities it  works  ill.    At Topeka, in  OF  HA  rJFA  :-xI_  X  GAPiT.1L,  SURHLUS,  $1,500,000  $1,175,000  A SAVINGS BANK DEPARTMENT  has been   established   in  connection   with   the   Nelson  Branch of this' Bank.  DEPOSITS OF $1 AND UPWARDS  received, and current rate of interest allowed (at present 3  por cent, par annum).  GEORGE KYDD, Manager,  Kansas, there are no saloons. Hut there  were ,uone when prohibition was'introduced, .popular feeling being against  them. A proof that it is popular feeling  thai, is strong, rather than prohibitive  law,  "Maine is tho banner slate ,'if prohibition. It had been trying the sysreiu fur  nearly iiall'a century, time enough to i;iil  the' liquor traffic, if the liquor traffic was  to be killed. Vet '('ail' Hamilton,' who  knew the state well, said in the North  American ILeview: 'The actual result is  that liquor is sold toall who wish toobtain  it, iu nearly evevy town in the state.' l_u-  forcenient of the law seems to have little  effect. For the past six years tlie city of  .Bangor has practically enjoyed free rum.  In more than one hundred places liquor  is sold and no attempt has been made to  enforce the law. In Bath, Levviston. Augusta aud other cities, no real difficulty is  experienced in procuring liquor, iu  Portland, enforcement of the law has  been faithfully attempted, yet the liquor  traffic nourishes for'all classes, from the  highest to the lowest.' *'  CARN-JGIE   AS   A   SCOTTISH   LAIKD  He   Leaves    tho    Cursings    of    Orphans   and  Widows for Peasants Homage  Andrew Carnegie has purchased a  million dollar castle iu Scotland, lie has  just moved into his new acquisition and  settled down there, apparently for all  time.  From this same retreat in the wilds of  Sutherlanilshire. Mr. Carnegie evidently  intends to carry on an extensive correspondence for the management of his huge  busine-s interests in America, "With this  object iu view he has persuaded the British government to open a postoffice ia the  immediate neighborhood.  Mr. Carnegie's new castle, for which lie  paid a round million of dollars, is called  Skibo. it is the first castle he ever owned.  For several years he rented Cluny castle,  which is the home of the head'of the  McPherson clan.  It was here that Mr. Carnegie learned  to feel like the lord of tlie manor. Jle  took great delight in receiving the respectful greetings of the neighboring  peasantry. Pinkertouism was unknown  at Cluny castle, but feudalism survived  to an extent which linally became irksome to .Mr. Carnegie. A.s long as he was  merely a tenant of McPherson he was  regarded by the peasantry as a sort of  interloper. Hiring Cluny from year to  year he, could not command the respect  of a'geuuine landlord. He was a tenant  at will when, as a matter of fact, he  wished to settle down and become a  property owner. He tried to buy. Cluny  castle, but his offer of a big price was  rejected with scorn by the proprietor.  All the things which Mr. Carnegie missed  at Cluny castle he has now found at  Skibo castle. Pie owns the entire estate  in fee simple. He is a large landed proprietor owning 20,000, acres, including  several small towns and a vast 'number of  farms. Besides all of this Mr. Carnegie  has bought an interesting old ruin, a  modern baronial castle and a family  ghost.  A large number of traditions go' wit'h  the estate, together with the graves of  several lords long since deceased, and  enough stories of murciers, plots and conspiracies to fill a volume. Mr.' Carnegie  is now for the first time a Scottish laird.-  The peasan ts touch their hats to him. He  litis a tartan or plaid all his own-. He has  a piper who walks around the dinner  table every evening making the sounds  which Li Hung Chang said reminded him  so strongly of Chinese music. He is going  to give balls to his tenantry. Mr. Carnegie's family will be. treated with all due  respect and he himself will lay down the  law for the simple people who live upon  his Lands. Ail of this is expected to be  delightful after the hurly burly life  which-Mr. Carnegie has led at Pittsburg.  Neither will he be bothered by any more  McPherson.. There will he no great  noblemen in the immediate neighborhood  to1 dim the local greatness of Carnegie.  Skibo castle is in one of the wildest  parts of the highlands, ft is about four  miles from the fishing village of .Dornoch.  The modern castle is a. handsome structure built in the Scottish baronial style.  The old Skibo castle, which is now a ruin,  is on the top of a hill about a quarter of a  mile away from'the modern structure. It  was built, in 1.1.SS by Gilbert Murray,  bishop of Moray, to whom the territory  haci been given by Hugo, earl of Sutherland. This was a famous fortress. Jt  'withstood no less than ten sieges. Within  its walls was confined the great marquis  of Montrose after his betrayal by Campbell of Assynt.  Jt was from Skibo that the marquis was  taken to J^dinburgh to be executed. Then  Skibo castle passed through a long course  of struggles and it figures prominently m  the history of Sutherlandshire. Finally  it was ordered to be dismantled by George  if., because it nave shelter to tho Jacobites. Jt has never been repaired, but its  ruins, now ivy grown and picturesque,  are extensive. The. new Skibo castle is  surrounded by handsome trees. The land  is extraordinarily fertile for this part of  Scotland.  In 1872 lord Duffus sold the estate of  Skibo to Mr. I.van Charles Sutherland for  $0.*50,000. Mr. Carnegie has now bought  it from Mr. Sutherland for $1,000,000. Mr.  Carnegie i.s already known as "the Laird  of Skibo," which is pronounced Skeebo.  r_E_L_E_  s~\  OF  f -&, "5 R ��  _aV il _ _  IK   CUHZOiV.

THE   CAIYIPAIG-N   IN   BG-yPT  The present campaign in  iOgypt.   which  is turning out so successfully   for  British  arms, means more than the mere avenging  of  tho death  of Chinese  Gordon.    It   is  just  thirteen   years  since   i00.000 Moslem  dervishes surrounded generai Cordon and  his   little    garrison    a. I,    Khartoum   and  ma--.-acred them.    Ever since ihe.se crazed  faiia.tics  have  ravaged   lhe   l.'pper   Nile,  slaughtering its inhabitants  nnd   making  its   fertile   valley   like 'tho   surrounding  desert.   ' The    head'  of    Britain's   great  general, was  brought  in  a.   blanket   aud  thrown at lhe feet'of rhe barbaric Mahdi,  whoso son, the  murderous  khalifa,  since  held sway at Onidurman  by  inciting his  subjects to kill aud plunder iu the name  of Allah:    The passion  of the dervishes  for desolating  tho  Nile   valley   and   its  beautiful cities is due to a religions whim.  Jt is to wipe out every recollection of the  former  christian   Egyptian  government.  This is why Khartoum, the finest city iu  tropical east Africa, was laid in ruins and  the  Moslem city of Omdurman   erected  across   the  river from  the   spoils.    The  new capital of the strangest empire in the'  world has .150,000 inhabitants.    Here the  khalifa held  sway iu   barbaric splendor  with the most dissolute court  in  modern .  times.    The rule has   been   carried   ou   iu  defiance of the civilized   world  for a de-  decade,   bur.   with   the   slow    but    sure  advance of the British force its doom was  seaied as surely as if it  had   been  in  the  path of a mighty glacier.  Invents have shown that the present  contest has been a war of science against  barbaric force and fanaticism. With  -wonderful precision tiie British forward  march has been going ou for two years  from Assuau, 700 miles down the river, and  civilization has been following in its wake.  It is unique in modern warfare. Keeping  stepwiih lhe vanguard of troopers is tho  steady clang of the tracklayer's gangs as  the railroad is being built day by day,  and over the newly laid rails moves the  pioneer train loaded with army accoutrements. Along the Nile steamed the gunboats sweeping the banks of ambushed  foes. Ahead were phi:ns whitened by the  bones of myriads of former inhabitants  slaughtered' by tho Dervishes. Behind,  along the line' of glistening rails, towns  are springing up and the waters are again  diverted over the fertile plains. It is a  march of progress. The seasoned British  troop�� plodded alone stolidly in the flaring sun and their allies revelled in ! he  tho heat. For- the latter it was a crusade  of vengeance against a foe that has murdered their 'people and desolated their  country. With these elements combined  it is a "march .of. fate "whose end will be  the destruction of barbarism and the establishment of civilization iu one of the  largest and "most fertile districts on the  globe���and Gordon's death will be more  than avenged.  Lost Less Than 300 Men on the Field '''  In the late war the United States lost in  killed 2SS men, while J778 were wounded,  in the civil war 1.10,070 men we're killed or  died of wounds. The effect and efficiency  of long range guns cannot be estimated  by the results of the war, for sure it is  the Spaniards shot wild. The charge no  ,Ssu Juan hill would would have resulted  in the death or wounding of every man  had-there been steady 'nerved'men in the  works. Colonel List-urn says that all that  saved his men was the fact that the  Spaniards fired over him. it is probably  true that it was safer to make that charge  than either to stand still or retreat, and  that tlie danger decreased every step that  the assaulting force advanced up the  bloody slope.  Good Drinking People.  The people of British Columbia are  pretty good'drinkers. They are not so  numerous as the people of New Brunswick, but they drink as, much in three  days'as'.their, eastern brothers cio in a  week. During the first nineteen years  since Confederation, for every thousand  persons there was drunk in New Brunswick, lO.OJS gallons of spirits; British Columbia, 25,897 gallons of spirits: New  Brunswick, 1530 galons of wine; liritish  Columbia, 11,0.32 gallons of wine: New  Brunswick, I2.7o0 gallons of beer: British  Columbia, 72,827 gallons of beer.

The present  is the first time that an American woman  has been called oil to assist in the imperial  government of Great Britain.    The consort; of the viceroy of J ndia has to perform  regal   functions; she   not' only   receives  princes, but by right of her sex she enters  iii to their homes, which are barred against  'i.he  imile  representatives   of the queen-  e.tupress.    The elevation oi the women of  India  continues   tobe one  of  the gr'ea.  quc.stions of the moral anrl  material  welfare of ihis country, and heie a lean must  largely follow the guidance ot woman, no  iiKiCter     how      elevated     his     position.  Kurihermme,   ihe   v icerine    is  lhe  head  of Aiifilo-Inriiau society, and  an  the   wife  of the busiest man in Asia, she litis ample  scope for exercising a  healthy inlluence,  both socially and politically.  Mrs. (Jury.on  will occupy a more splendid place ml ndia  thcin   her   fellow-countrywoman  find  at  the White. House ;tit Washington.  .Mr. (Jurzou's acceptance of ollice will  he welcomed in India, except, perhaps, by  ti small section of the native press, which  is afraid of tiie strong views put forward  by him, after his letiiru from'central Asia  in ISS8, in respect to tho protection of  j-Iiiidustan against Russian design.. Ic is  to be warmly commended, for it affords  evidence to the people of India that tlieir  governor generalship still has attraction  I'or rising English statesmen. Mr. Curzou  is a commoner. In the ordinary course of  events he, as eldest son, will succeed lord  Scarsdale ; but, as the latter is only in his  sixty-eighth year, there is no immediate  likelihood of this occurrence.  At dubii.rs held in government house,  the viceroy sits ou a large silver throne  witih gold lious for arms, while a gold  embroidered carpet is laid before it.  Around the throne, on such occasions,  stand attendants with a yak's tail,  bunches of peacock feathers set in gold,  gilt maces, and other symbolical tokens  of empire deeply significant to the native  mind. The native princes make submission and proffer allegiance to the  viceroy of Ihe great Ivaisar-i-JIind by  presenting gold cons, strictly liinite.fl in  number according r.o their relative rank;  these the viceroy merely touches and returns to them. At the levees each native  oflicer presents the hilt of his sword to  the viceroy, who touches it. Those who  think these ceremonies are idle, and that  they might be dispensed with, had better  read the accurately historical Indian  novels written by Coionei Meadows Taylor about periods prior _o tho advent of  the British.  The viceroy has an annual salary of  $8"3,o28, calculated at the present rate of  rupee exchange; but his traveling expenses and allowances often reach $200,-  over and above this amount. His household arrangements are managed by a  military secretary, assisted by four ordinary aides-de-camp. I_tich of these  takes a department such as the stables,'  which contain Ho horses find 18 state elephants; the household, except the kitchen;  the kitchen itself; amusements, including  the baud; and the invitations, which run,  like those of royalty, in the form- of a  command.' Tiie vicerine usually takes  the ordering of all these matters off her  lord's shoulders, and the services of the  A. D. C.'s are vveli understood, to be as  much at her disposal, outside of political  errands, as at his. The hosts of servants-  wear handsome liveries of gold and  scarlet, the splendid body guard is always on duty, and sentries are regularly  mounted night and day, even in the corridors of their excellencies' sleeping  apartments.  lid/ ���  a      _1    \___1 __rii   _l  Received Daily from Spokane at the  ca;  THE CilKAPKST PhACK IK TKK CITV KOR J/KU-ITH OF ALL KINDS.

Bismarck's Experience In the Brewery  When Bismarck was in London in .18-1*3  he was invited to visit the famous  brewery of Barclay ic Perkins, and his  hosts, liaving heard of his reputation as a  beer drinker of great prowess,_ presented  to him an enormous tankard of old ale, in  the confident expectation that he would  be obliged to admit himself vanquished by  it.    "1 seized the tankard," Bismarck told  SirCharles Dilke, who tells the story, "and  ] thought of my country and drank to  Prussia, and tilted it tili it was empty.  Then 1 thanked my entertainers, courteously, J hope, and succeded in making my  way as far as London bridge.
