Frank Collom has control of  the Mabou and Ohio group, situated  just above the Enterprise on Ten-  milo, and being tho last propurty  between that mine and the Arlington. Jt is the third boud made by  Mr. Collom in as many weeks, and  lie now has all the ground under  control from the Arlington to the  Enterprise. To secure this ground,'  it has cost Mr. Collom $126,000 iu  option valuations, being $55,000 for  the Speculator, $0000 for the Gertie  R., and now $65,000 for the Mabou  aud Ohio.  The bond is similar to the others  signed, calling for a certain amount  of development during the life of  the agreement. A first payment of  five por cent is to be paid on December 4th, and a similar sum nine  months from date, and the balance  on September 4th, 1901. The properties iu the group are the Empress Fraction, Mabou, Ohio and  the Summit Fraction. The owners  are R. L. Kirkwood, Frank Wells,  A. Tunks and George Williamson of  New Denver: Duncan Grant of Silverton and Mrs. C. E. Smitheriiigale  of Slocan. " The papers are held in  the Bank of Montreal in this city.  The group is one of the best  known in the camp and was staked  immedialy after the Enterprise. It  is situated immediately above the  Enterprise and NeepaAva. Both  veins have beeu cut and opened up,  eaclr showing ore. The group will  alsocover the Arlington vein coming over from Springer creek. Upwards of $7000 worth of work has  beeu > done upon the property in  the way of opening up the. leads.  Last Monday the Enterprise lead  was encountered in the crosscut  tunnel on the Mabou, at a depth of  over 60 feet and about the -same  distance from the mouth of the  drift. The lead is upwards of a  foot in width and shows good ore  scattered through the quart/.,  though little of it is as yet clean'  mineral. Ou the - surface the vein  has beeu cut in half a dozen'places,  sliowhig the same characteristics as  in the Enterprise group.  RUSSIA'S CHINESE  RIDDLE  Not Yet Solved.  London, September 8.���The Chinese crisis presents no new features  this morning. Nothing appears to  be certain. Regarding Russian action various statements are made  in Vienna and Berlin, with an assumed air of authority, but the  balance of opinion leads to the belief that Russia is still inclined to  adhere to her decision to quit  Pekin, whatever the other powers  mydo.  The studiously moderate tone of  _omperor-William'sspeech-at-Stettin-  is   much   remarked.      There -was  nothing of the "mailed fist" or of  revenge in his utterances.   According to the Standard's Moscow cor-  ' respondent, Russia's programme  mainly concerns Manchuria, and  she needs .roops from Pekin to  as-  I sist in the seizure of that province,  which is looked upon as another  Egypt. Her withdrawal from Pekin is considered an attempt to  pose as a sincere adherent of the  principles of the Hague conference.  The Tien-Tsin correspondent of  the Standard, wiring August 30th,  says: "The Germans paired with  the Americans in .the march through  the forbidden city. The British  naval brigade and the marines of  the legation guards left Pekin today."  The Pekin correspondent of the  Morning Post, in a dispatch dated  August 28rd, says: ''Mr. Conger  has written a letter asserting that  without the aid of the American  missionaries the. defence of the  legations would have been impossible. According to this corie-  spondeut the United States minister has received congratulatory  telegrams from president McKiniey  and others."  The Stellar Polar Expedition.  Christiana, September 7.���Fur-  || ther details regarding the expedition of the duke of Abrussi, on  board the Stellar Polar, whose safe  return was reported yesterday  from Tromsoe, Norway, show that  the expedition last year, through  Nightingale sound and the British |  The Queen Will Visit the Empress.  Berlin, September 7.���It is said  in court circles here that queen  Victoria will visit dowager empress  Frederick next month, unless the  latter's condition meanwhile should  considerably improve, which is not  probable. ^_   Fatal Gun Explosion.  Vienna,   September   7.���During  the Austrian military manoeuvres  today  on   the borders of   Galicia  and Bohemia, a big gun exploded,  returned to Teplitz bay, Crown  Prince Rudolph's Land, where the  Stellar Polar was frozen in about  Ssptember 1st. The duke of  Abrussi's fingers were frost bitten  on a trial sledge trip at Christmas,  aud two joints were amputated,  obliging him to remain for several  mouths in hi.s tent. On August 8th  the Stella Polar started homeward.  She traversed the British canal in a  single day and then drifted about  for a fortnight in a severe struggle  with drift ice before reaching the  open sea.  RICH CLAIMS AROUND ATLIN  Create Much Excitement.  Seattle, September 7.���The City  of Seattle, which arrived from Skagway, had on board in round figures  $700,000 worth of Klondike gold.  Of this amount $530,760 was a consignment by the Canadian Bank of  Commerce at Dawson, and $43,200  consigned by a gentleman named  James Brown. Besides these  amounts the purser had charge of a  number of smaller, quantities of  gold. Iu addition to the gold dust  many passengers brought out considerable amounts in the shape of  drafts issued by the Dawson banks.  The belief is that the Seattle passengers had from $75,000 to $100,000,  of whicli the purser and ship's officers hadno knowledge. There was  hardly standing room in the purser's  office. The ship's safe was crowded  full. " Boxes and sacks of gold were  piled up in every nook and corner.  Nearly $20,000 worth of Klondike  treasure was received by the  steamer Aberdeen, which arrived  from Skagway early in the afternoon. .The bulk of this wealth was  owned by three men. She sailed  from Skagway on August 30th.  Lewis H. Pratt, a member of the  Skagway bar, who has just returned from'the Porcupine district,  where he has properties, reports  that Glacier creek, which is on the  British side of the boundary, is  rich in gold, and that claims oh the  creek are being worked extensively,  and nuggets to the value of as high  as $50 are being "taken out. He is  of the opinion that there will be  trouble between British- Colum-  .biaus and Americans over claims  which the latter have staked and  are now within the boundary  claimed by the Canadians.  Whitley and Finley, on a bench  on Porcupine creek, from one space  six feet by eight feet, cleared up  $4000. For a few days the pay  dirt ran as high as $100 to the pan.  There is a rush to this new Eldorado in Atlin.  No lives were lost by the wreck  of the steamer Bonanza King, which  mishap occurred in 50-Mile river,  one of the headwaters of the Yukon,  on the 25th ultimo. She ran on  the rocks while en route from  White Horse to Dawson, tearing a  great hole in her bottom. It is believed, however, that the vessel can  be floated and repaired. Her cargo  -isrepor ted-to-be a -total���loss;���She  had on board several hundred tons  of miners' supplies aud general  merchandise, a large quantity of  which, was from Vancouver and  Victoria. k   Skirmishes in the Transvaal.  London, September 7. ��� Lord  Roberts reports from Belfast under  date of Wednesday, September Sth,  as follows: "Ian Hamilton traversed Dubstroom yesterday with  slight opposition. Buller engaged  the enemy's left this morning and  Hamilton is endeavoring to turn  his right. A largo force of Boers  with two guns and one  pompom this morning attacked  125 of the Canadian Mounted  infantry guarding the railway between Pan and Wondersfontein.  Mahon proceeded to their assistance, but the little garrison had  beaten off the enemy before he  arrived. It was a very creditable  performance. The wounded were  major Handers and lieutenant  Moodie, slightly wounded, and two  men.   Six men are missing.  NEW ATLANTIC MAIL ROUTE  Will Save Eight Hours.  New York, September 7.���A  dispatch to the World from London  says: An official communication  has been received from Dover con-  corning the use of that port by the  new line of Transatlantic mail  steamers to be built and owned in  the United States and called the  Atlantic Shipping Company.  This company has been formed  for the purpose of running weekly^  steamers between New York and  England and the continent and, it  is stated, is to be subsidized by the  United States for carrying mails.  The first port for these liners on  this side of the Atlantic will be  Berehaven on the'extreme southwest of Ireland, at the entrance of  Bantry bay. This is a naval station for the British fleet and is defended by forts erected on an  island and on the mainland. It  contains all the necessaries, including depth of water, for such a port.  , Among the bills passed by parliament last session was one enabling a railway to be constructed  from the pier.in Berehaven harbor  almost in a straight line to Ross-  lare, on the east coast, where the  Great Western railway of England  is now establishing a line of fast  mail steamers to do the fifty-seven  miles passage to Fishguard, Wales,  in two and three-quarter hours.  The effect of this arrangement  will be that a special train leaving  Berehaven with mails and passengers will be at Paddington in less  than 13 hours. This, as- compared  with the Queenstown route, is a  clear gain of over eight hours in  time, as Berehaven is six hours west  of Queenstown. On the many  occasions of stormy weather, when  .mail steamers can; not get into  Queenstown,- and must proceed to  Liverpool, the gain will be increased,  as Berehaven harbor is available in  all weathers. It has two entrances,  perfectly sheltered, with. 40 to 50  fathoms of water.  The steamers of this new line  are to be constructed to maintain  an average speed of 25 knots across  the Atlantic, a United States subsidy being conditional on this speed.  Breaking Bicycle Records.  . Boston, September 7.���Some  great record breaking was done  in tonight's two hours riding in the  Golden Vase event at the Charles  River Park, the existing records  for one hour and up to two hours  being broken. The previous record  for two hours riding was made last  Wednesday by Stinson, 67 miles,  1470 yards. Tonight Archie Mc-  Eaehern, the Canadian champion,  went 69 miles, 612 yards. Stinson  and McEachern were the principal  riders tonight, and the result for  four hours riding gives the lead to  Stinson with the ereditof 136 miles,  17 yards. Harry Elkes, middle dis-  tance champio"' rode an exhibition,  five miles motor paced in 8.09 4-5,  breaking the record for two miles  of 3.16 1-5 by a fifth of a second.  Industrial Troubles in Manchester.  London, September 6.���The  morning papers comment upon the  seriousness of the crisis which has  arisen at Manchester, where great  suffering is likely to occur by the  enforced idleness of the cotton  operatives, especially if, as is not  improbable, the stoppage continues  into October. The prospects of a  satisfactory American crop is  regarded as slender.  McFadden Was Worsted.  Piiiladelhhia, September 7.���  Joe Gans, Baltimore, and George  McFadden of New York fought six  rounds tonight at the Pennsylvania  Athletic Club. Gans had the best  of the go. Although there was  considerable clinching throughout  tht six rounds, both men seemed to  have done their Very best. Neither  man was in the best of condition.  canal, reached as far north as 82.4,1 killing   four   men    outright   and |  but finding no wintering harbor, it   fatally wounding 18 others.  Russia May Compromise.  London, September 8. ��� It is  asserted by the Austrian foreign  office, according to the Vienna  correspondent of the Daily Mail,  that Russia has agreed to compromise, leaving a portion of the  troops in Pekin and sending the  main body to Tien-Tsin, which will  be the military headquarters.  The Consul Was Mad.  Dawson, August 24.���Americans  residing in   the Klondike are reported to be indignant over an insult alleged to have been offered  ' United States consul McCook during  the recent visit to the city cf  governor-general Minto. It is said  that consul McCook was not invited  to attend the reception tendered  lord Minto, aud that he was so  obviously ignored that lord Minto  noticed the fact and insisted on  consul McCook's presence. The  latter was informed of lord Minto's  wish, and came to the gathering.  Lord Minto and consul McCook are  reported tt have talked long and  earnestly together concerning various government matters.  RECEPTION TO LORD MINTO  Placed in-Committee's Hands.  At an adjourned meeting of the  city council last night arrangements  were made to extend a- welcome to  the earl of Minto, governor-general  of .Canada, who will be in the city  on Wednesday next. A sudden  change in the itinerary of the viceregal party has made it possible to  spend that day in Nelson, and the  corporation will co-operate with  the board of trade in extending a  hearty welcome to the distinguished  visitors.  A special committee was appointed consisting of aldermen  Arthur, Morrison and Irvine to take  charge of the matter with power to  act. The city has a large amount  of flags and bunting'which will be  hung to the best advantage by the  members of the firo department.  The suggestions made by the council last night included a banquet at  one of the hotels or on the school  grounds     if     weather     permits.  An address from the corporation,  suitably engrossed, will be read by  the city clerk, and presented to the  governor-general by the mayor. A  civic half holiday will probably be  proclaimed.      -      '  The local company of the Rocky  Mountain Rangers was seen yesterday and" volunteered to form a  guard of honor. The regimental  band will also parade. On Sunday  night a representative of the council will go to Robson. to meet the  vice-regal party en route to; Rossland and secure' such*-" other information as is necessary to complete  the arrangements for the reception.  Thomas Symes, assistant sanitary  inspector, reported having inspected  plumbing at the rear of the Waverley hotel, which was contrary to  the bylaw and very offensive to the  hotel people. The waste fiom a  sink and from two stables was being dumped into Ward creek and  the matter had been placed before  the medical health officer. On  motion of aldermen Arthur and  Morrison it was resolved to notify  the owners to abate the nuisance  at once, failing which prosecutions  .will be instituted.  ANOTHER MOVE EXPECTED  Found Against the.Company.  Lansdale, Pa., September 7.���  The coroner's jury which has been  investigating   the    cause   of   the  .wreck on���the���Philadelphia���&-  Reading railroad at Hatfield, last  Sunday, in which 13 persons were  killed and over 50 injured in a collision between a milk traiu and a  crowded excursion, today rendered  a verdict fixing the responsibility  upon the railroad company, engineer John Davis, and conductor  Thomas Shelby of the colliding excursion train, D. B. Elder, telegraph  operator atSouderon, which is next  to Hatfield, and W. S. Goyes, train  despatcher in the Reading terminal  station at Philadelphia. The extent  to which the company is held  responsible is its failure to strictly  observe the rule requiring five minutes at least between trains, and  the absence of block signal service.  The jury recommends a strict observation of the five minute rule and  the continuation of the block system to Bethlehem.  Murdered the Watchman.  Marshall, Missouri, September  7.���H. H. Mowrey, night operator  on the Chicago & Alton railway,  was held up last night by three  masked robbers. While the men  were rifling the station money  drawer, night watchman Aulgur  appeared, and pointing his revolver  through the door, commanded the  men to surrender. He was immediately shot in the eye by one of  the robbers, and died soon after.  The robbers decamped.  Freight Rates Advanced.  London, September.���The shipping firms engaged in the Canadian  trade have agreed to an advance of  ten per cent in freight rates because  of the advance in coal and other J Washington  steamship stores.  Opposed to the Withdrawal.  London, September 7.���The London chamber of commerce has received a telegram from the Hong  Kong chamber of commerce, coupled  with a request that it be communicated to the British foreign office,  advocating the continuation of the  occupation of Pekin until a proper  government has been established,  and the guilty officials have been  punished, and pointing out that an  early withdrawal would be disastrous to foreign prestige in China.  The dispatch, together with a  special letter from the Loudon  chamber of commerce, recommending it as deserving of consideration,  has been sent to lord Salisbury.  Expect Russia to Yield.  Berlin, September 7.���Evidently  the German foreign oflice reckons  with the possibility that Russia  will yield to the powers, and will  not withdraw her troops from Pekiu. Discussing this question today, a high foreign official said:  "Germany does not understand the  dispatches   to   mean  By Washington Authorities.  Washington, September 7.���Minister Wu arrived in Washington tonight, from Cape May, and although  it was near the close of -the official  day, he proceeded- direct to the  state department. It is understood  that he had received an intimation  that the department officials were  desirous of conferring with him  hence his return to Washington.  For nearly an hour the minister  was closeted with acting secretary  H ill and assistant secretary Adee,  the trio beiug locked in meantime,  and not even the messengers allowed an entrance. Nono of the  parties to the conference were communicative as to the conference,  but at its conclusion, Dr. Hill repaired to the White House, with a  portfolio well filled with papers. ���  For several hours preceding the  minister's visit, acting secretary  Hill and assistant secretary Adee  had been engaged in short conferences, and it was gathered that the  negotiations relative to China were  approaching another phase, and  that another announcement of some  kind was in preparation. The fact  is recalled, that when the United  States made its response to the  Russian note on the 20th ultimo,  the officials here expressed the belief that about a week's time would  be required to determine upon the  next step, and at the end of  that time it would be definitely  known whether or not the troops  were to be withdrawn from Pekin.  That period of time has now  elapsed.    " ,---.._���_  The reports from "the European  chancellors indicate that officially  at least this important subject is  being treated with the greatest deliberation, and. at least another  week and probably even more time  may be consumed in framing the  last of the answers to the Russian  note. The consultations with Mr.  Wu are. believed to have been inspired by a desire to ,learn something of the personality, of Chinese  notables whose names have been  suggested as proper to constitute  the Chinese side of any commission  which may be named to arrange a  settlement of the difficulties. Mr.  Wu is an ardent adherent of  earl Li.  There is much speculation here as  to the personnel of the American  commissioners in case the peace negotiations -should be entrusted to  such a body, and the names of men  prominent in international affairs  in recent years all have been canvassed. Included in the list is the  name of general John W. Foster,  but it is regarded as much more  probable that if he appears at all  in the negotiations it will be in his  old place as a representative of the  Chinese government. He was associated with Li.LIung Chang during  the peace negotiations which closed  the-Ghino-Japanese_warraird'~rt��� is"  said that earl Li has a high sense  of appreciation of his work for  China then.  There was a dearth of official information from China today. Mr.  Chaffee got through a dispatch  dated September 1st, at Pekin, indicating that couriers are still employed to close the gap in the line  of communication between Tien-  Tsin and Pekin. This dispatch  made no mention of the military  situation, and it was inferred that  affairs in Pekin remain quiet.  withdraw their troops. So far as  Russia is concerned it must be  borne in mind that she did not put  forth her proposition of withdrawal as a sine quo non, but only  tentatively, and for the purposes  of discussion." On attention being  called to the sharp criticisms of  Russia's attitude in a section of the  German press, the foreign office  official remarked: "Our press is discussing the question for the most  part in a wholly amicable spirit,  and those papers that are attacking Russia are pursuing a policy of  their own."  CERMANY'S NAVAL DISPLAY  } that the  United States intend to  Third Arbitrator Appointed.  Winnipeg, September 7.���J. A.  M. Atkins, Q. C, the C. P. R. company's arbitrator, and 'president  O'Connell, representing the men, in  the settlement of the machinists'  scale of wages could not agree, and  called on chief justice Killam to appoint a third man. He has named  Robert Strang, vice-president of  the board of underwriters, who will  act.  Will Be Something Big.  Berlin, September 7.���Emperor  William's speech at Stettin today is  here interpreted to mean that his  plan of overcoming the present'  difficulties in China will be adopted  by the powers. This goes to show  as has been claimed all along, that  Germany in the China matter is  following the personal policy of the  kaiser. A number of leading  journals condemn such a course as  in contravention of the constitution  of the empire. The Gugenwast, a  high class periodical, concludes an  article as follows :*' '��� Surely it is  high time to determine the question  whether our political life can be  justly called, constitutional, or  whether we are steering towards  absolutism."  From the present instructions of  the naval department, Germany  will make the strongest naval demonstration ever made in- Shang-Hai,  namely ten^ warships,, with 3200  nion.and 166 gnus. Of these vessels  four wii-L .he large cruisers, four  others will be somewhat smaller,  and two will -be gunboats.  A special dispatch from Amoy  says that both the Japanese and  British marines were withdrawn  today and everything there is quiet.  Special despatches to the Cologne  Gazette announce that all classes of  . the Chinese population believe that  the Chinese have' been victorious  over the allied troops. Striking  illustrations of this are given.  Guarding Against Plague.  Ottawa, September 7.���When  there arose a fear last winter that  the bubonic plague might be  imported to this continent from  China the Dominion health authorities prepared and issued in January  last special quarantine regulations,  wliich were published and intended  for use on the Pacific coast. These  regulations could be applied on the  Atlantic coast if necessity should  arise. As soon as the rumor of the  very recent outbreak of the plague  in Giasgow reached here, the  department communicated with the  health officers at Washington, who  were thus first made aware of the  rumor. As it is necessary that the  whole continent sho_uld_act in.unison-  if there is to be any danger of  the disease coming from Glasgow, it has been arranged  that United States surgeon Thomas  at Glasgow, who has had experience  elsewhere of this disease, shall inspect all ships leaving that port for  America, but Canada will also appoint a medical officer there to  assist him. It appears from cable  dispatches that the authorities in  Glasgow were not certain that the  cases under suspicion were bubonic  until Friday last, and now they report twelve cases, completely isolated and in a district such a distance from the wharves that no  danger of its importation to  America need be felt unless  the disease should spread  to a much larger area. Communica  tion was also opened with the lines  running from Glasgow to Canada���  the Allan, Elder-Dempster, Red-  ford, Dominion and McLean-Kennedy���all of whom have signified  their intention to take every precaution in the way of examining  all passengers coming . on . board  their vessels, and also by guarding  tho hawsers from rats, which is  thought to have been the way the  disease was carried from China to  India and elsewhere.  ROBBING DAWSON SLUICES  News From the North.  Victoria, September 7.���By the  Tee9, news is brought of a sluice '.,  box robbery in Dawson on August;^  21st.   Bradley and Dunham, owri-.^  ers of the hillside claim opposite?  the upper half of 30 on the left"v  limit, are sufferers to tho extent of \ .  $300 in   dust.   The   robbery   was-V'V  evidently   carried    out    by   _neh\i  thoroughly familiar with the habi^i  its of the employees.

The men were some distance in from. p,  Hazelton  at last accounts.

After the murder the Indian  took to the woods and remained'  away until three weeks ago, when"  coming into the village, he was captured by commissioner Porter.  ATHABASCA'S AUGUST RUN  -.sy^i  ���:":&  ;.vS$l  Gave a Gross Yield of $17,400.  E. Nelson Fell, manager of the  Athabasca mine has issued the report of the company's operations  for the month of August. The report will be cheerful reading to the  shareholders of the company, not  only in view of the gross returns  but also with respect to the values  which the Athabasca ore continues  to show.

The work on the Athabasca's cyanide plant is being carried on as  rapidly as possible in order that the  outside operations may be completed during the fine weather. Excellent progress is being made.  John McKane of Rossland was in  the city yesterday returning from  the Lardo country where the company of which he is president is  developing the Lavina-Butte properties. The work at present consists of tunnelling to tap the vein  at the 400 foot level. By the end  of the month the tunnel will be in  300 feet.  The Beichsrath Dissolved.

No Cabinet Reconstruction.  The Province.  The frantic guess of the Vancouver World at the composition of a  reconstructed government, wherein  Messrs. Turner, Wells and Prentice should be no more, has occasioned no little amusement here  ���more particularly among those  who are in the know. For the  benefit of the World, as well as of  the general public, it may now be  said with confidence that there will  be no reconstruction for the present at- all events. Hon.

It is jogging along in a most happy  way with the prospect of the liveliest winter season in its history  ahead of it.   Not only aro the com-  ' panies operating making most  favorable showings, but new companies are continually coming in,  and few days in the week go by in  which some bona fide transfer of  developed property is not recorded.  The most encouraging feature of  the present condition is that there  is no boom on. Investors are passing over boomed districts and selecting Nelson properties simply on  account of their individual worth.  The Kamloops board of trade  has decided to call a convention to  be held in Kamloops. on Thursday,  the 27th instant, for the purpose of  organizing a good roads association.  The nomination of William Mac-  Lain as a labor candidate in Westminster district would be a mistake.  It would be courting certain defeat,  and might result in' destroying  whatever political influence the  labor party at Vancouver has.  Another thing worth remembering  is that with MacLain as its candidate the labor party would be  carrying a very heavy handicap.  The organ of the local Conserva- ,  fcive   machine,   -which,   denounced i  New Treatment For Sudbury Ore.  Another process has been devised  for treating those metallurgical  puzzles, the Sudbury copper-nickel  ores. The new process is the invention of H. A. Frasch of New  York, and great things are expected of it. The ores are reduced  to matte in the usual way, but the  copper, nickel, platinum, etc. are  removed from this matte by electrolysis in a chloridizing solution.  It is stated that chlorine ��� and  bleaching powder can be had as byproducts. The laboratory tests  made are said to be very satisfactory, but what can be done on a  commercial scale remains to be  seen. The process is to have a  public demonstration in a few days.

There are no other houses  on the islands, and Mrs. Clark is the  only white woman. Her home is a  small cottage of four rooms, very  cozy and comfortable, with books  and pictures and a fine outlook over  the sea.  Mrs. Clark's nearest neighbor is  the wife of the agent on St. Paul,  who is less lonely because she has  with her two small children.  THE BANK OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is now prepared to issue Drafts and  Letters of Credit on Skagnay, U. S.,  Atlin, B. 0., and Dawson City, N. W. T.  There is no communication between the islands except by one of  the company's ships aud by revenue  cutters, as other ships are not permitted to visit them.  These ships come only in the  summer,-and-froni���October��� until  June Mrs. Clark does not expect to  see anyone or hear anythiug from  the United States, or to send word  home, no matter what happens.  St. George is absolutely without  trees, but,- its rolling surface and  mountain, a thousand feet high,  and beautifully green with coarse  grass and moss, and wild flowers of  brilliant hues dot tho level stretches  near the sea. Blue foxes abound,  and over the rocks at the water's  edge thousands and thousands of  seals in ceaseless activity disport  themselves noisily day and night,  from June until December, while  millions of waterfowl fill air and  sea and flutter about the cliffs.  Three hundred days in the year  the weather is dark and dismal,  and fogs hide the islands for days  at a time. The cold is never excessive, biit the winter storms are severe, and terrible gales sweep over  sea and land. There is no harbor,  and ships come to anchor a mile or  more from shore.  THE   LYTTON   DREDGE.  Inland Sentinel.  John Cobledick, manager of the  Cobledick New Zealand gold dredge  on the Fraser near Lytton, reports  that the dredge has been in operation for the past month and that  he is more than satisfied with the  results attained. The dredge is in  operation every hour of the twenty-  four, the men working three shifts.  Every twenty-four hours 1500  cubic yards of gravel is taken  from the bottom of the  stream and passed over the treating  tables. This may not appear a  large amount at first sight, but  when  it  is understood that this  Imperial Bank of Ganada  HEAD   OFFICE. TORONTO.

Mr. Cobledick says the mechanical part of tho dredge is perfection,  but that owing to the complicated  nature nature of the gold saving  apparatus some changes will be  made from time to time as the necessity is demonstrated. Ib is possible to move the entire dredge  from side to side of the river  (which is 1000 feet wide) in five  minutes.  Operations will be continued as  long as the weather will allow,  which may be all winter. The only  difficulty in the way of winter  operation will be frost, which  will not allow the freo passage of  water over the treating tables.

Hewitt Eostock's Assignment.  The Colonist.  Hewitt Bostock, M. P., assigned  his real and personal estate today  to C. J. Helliwell, accountant, for  the benefit of his creditors. The  assignment has been duly registered. The Province Publishing  Company is not included in the  Bostock estate, but the B. C. Printing & Lithographing Company is  included���in-the^assetsf=-The=as-=  signment caused much surprise  among those who heard the news.  The assignment was due to numerous large unprofitable investments  in the province, althoughthe estate  comprised among its assets many  valuable investments and would  pay over 100 cents on the dollar.  Mr, Bostock, however, realizing  that necessary large 3iims were not  available ready to satisfy immediate demands, thought the safest  and best way to satisfy creditors  was to assign and thus insure full  returns for those who had claims  against him. .>.-..

The concert at the opera house  last under the auspices of the  Ladies' Aid of the Congregational  church was^ most successful from  an artistic standpoint and in a  more moderate degree from a practical point of view. The audience  was not as large as the entertainment merited, but it was appreciative and thoroughly enjoyed the  programme. ". The stage was neatly  arranged and handsomely ornamented with plants and flowers.  y$. The program, included selections  'by a number of leading local vocalists. Miss Bensusan, who is cast  for a leading part in the forthcoming production of "Mikado," sang  twice with splendid effect. She  possesses an unusually good soprano  voice and uses it with taste. A  unique feature was introduced in  the shape of a lady's trio by raes-  dames Caldwell,. Brown and Otis.  The number was warmly applauded.  C. A. Caldwell sang in good voice  and participated with Messrs.  Prosser, Hardy aud Thompson in  the selections rendered by the  Nelson quartette. It. Thompson,  also of the quartette, contributed  a stirring baritone solo. Mr. Griz-  zelle appeared twice most acceptably. D. Wambold rendered a  clarinet solo which made an- excellent impression. The accompanist of the evening was Miss  Wilson, who also played a solo with  taste and expression.  Will Support the Candidate.  Rossland Miner.
