Believes He is Alive.  .[Vancouver Province, January 23rd.]  Is Sir Arthur Curtis, the English baronet reported lost on the Ashcroft. trail  last year, still alive ? G. W. Cole, an old  miner at present iu this city, a guest at  the Western hotel, believes that he is.  Mr. Cole claims to have known Sir Arthur  intimately on the Ashcroft trail. He  .traveled with the party for miles and  says it was simply an impossibility for  the baronet to lose himself unwittiugly  on the trail or in the forest. There had  been a good deal of friction in the party  and Sir."..Cole thinks that sir At'thur, who,  he claims, supplied all the funds, got tired  of them, deliberately quit them and made  his way north alone. Mr. Cole had ; avertible trip over the Ashcroft trail, but experiences  similar   to .--his  have, been ��� re-  .��; ported .so pf/,e���n that they willhardly^ bear  s^iiep'etltiQt^^^  ���*��� cu"i!ena*��n6l:aims;n 'O^'OMer;^ciienekX��;He':'sayss  >41iat4thes���newKliggings"^vJUrJprove.0,vlery���  " tele'graphMlf^^^^  shops, or having them made to order on  lasts the shape of a man's last. Certainly  the shoes of the two sexes differ very  little in outward appearance, although  the difference in size is great. Even this  last distinction may be obviated if women  go on wearing larger shoes from year to  year. Women who five years ago wore a  four now wear a number five and own up  to it without the slightest regret.  Racingto Dawson.  A  race  against  time from  Seattle to  Dawson for $2000 a side, .with a side bet of  $1000 on the time from  Seattle to Skag-  way, is ou between Joe Barrett and Dick  Butler, . two   well-knOwn   and   wealthy  Klondikers now in Seattle preparing for  the ".-journey -north.   Barrett bets Butler  $2000 that the latter cannot make the trip  from Seattle to Dawson iu 25 days or less,  and $1000 more that he "cannot make the  trip   from   Skagway    to    Dawson     in  20    days   or   less.     The   money,    $0000  in gold,   was put   up   when   the    bets  were   made    in     the '.' grill     room    of  the  Butler   hotel,   H.   Coleman,   also  a  Klondiker, becoming the stakeholder.   A  little party  of  Klondike   pioneers were  diuing    together     when     the     subject  of record-breaking trips come up.   Butler  mentioned his own achievement when, in  December, 1S97. he made the trip out in  company with James McAuley of Victoria  in ISA days.   Barrett laughingly said that  the time could not be made again,  and  Butler quickly came to the front with a  bet.   Barrett stood his ground   and the  money went into the stakeholder's hands.  Butler will be accompauied on the trip by  his brother James.   They left Seattle ou  the steamer City of Seattle at 12 o'clock  last Sunday night, so the Seattle's speed,  is also involved in the bet.     .  r:6*:*��f:fc  "����l%cifieI#lailwa��y.*GbihpSny,^a'd�� oeeu.'ap  pointed sg^nei-al^suRpIuntendentiql^.the;"  ^esiei'ri * Id iy ision. ."with" "*^'eao!q\Va^ tgrsSak  ."��� Winnipeg, -������ Jl^cW^iy te .was*seeu: Friday*  yno.iming^b^  .-^'^e^��'a'S'^tn6siil.Ve^i3nf;tiBh -of t^us, rgpoii&_.

WILL HAVE A DEPRESSING EFFECT.  Captain Hay ward, "of the steamer International, who has excellent opportunities for ascertaining the drift of public sentiment,  is of the opinion that the Alien Exclusion bill, which  was recently  adopted by the provincial legislature, will have a depressing effect  upon the development of. the" Slocan.    While it is well   understood  that the measure as it passed the legislature deals exclusively with  placer mining, there is nevertheless a general feeling of uneasiness  on the part of the American mining men that sooner, or later simi-  lar provisions will be framed to .apply to quartz mining.    As the  result of many conversations with well-known mining men  operating in the Slocan who travel .on/the  steamers, captain Hay ward  is of the opinion that as a-result of the  passage of the exclusion  bill there will be much less development done in the Slocan  this  coming summer than  there would otherwise have been.    As the  bulk of this work has been; done .by Americans in the past, their  withdrawal will'have a noticeable effect upon the mining industry'  of the Slocan, more particularly ;ih view of the fact"' that Ganadians  or Englishmen will not take the., chances  which Americans take,  and which it is necessary that some one should take in order that  the worth of prospects may be determined.  ..': -������'"���/   /���',.;.::" -  .  %  ft  ft  ft  ���ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft.  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  ft  tunnel, and is not therefore of much value  towards proving the ground.  In the crosscut, what is presumably  the north vein, is intersected. The vein  at this point is split up by intrusive bands  of , country rock, some of the quartz  stringers being as much as 10 feet apart.  I took hand samples from different  points which yielded the following results  in gold:  Selected samples from north tunnel,  $120. Various samples from cuts and  trenches as follows : No. 1, a trace; No. 2,  none; No. 3. $2; No. 1, $4; No. 5, $100; So. 0,  $120.40.  Samples taken in this way are of slight  value only, they indicate, however, that  in places good gold values are to be found,  and the continuity of the vein affords  ground for expecting that development  will prove the existence of ore chutes that  can be profitably worked.  The conditions are favorable for opening  the vein by means of tunnels, and as the  property is near Nelson and the established means of communication, only  small amounts need be expended on preliminary, expenses.  Sufficient timber is on the ground to  supply the mine during the early stages.  The trustees of the company are W. F.  Teetzel, H. G. Neelands, R. S. Lennie, A.  H. Kelly and E. N.

The same indomitable spirit that iu  California changed the course of rivers  and overturned mountains is still iu evidence. In Alaska, some California hydraulic miners have drained a lake 3000  feet long, 2000 feet wide and 150 feet deep  ^-Gold lake, in Paii.de basin, near Sitka���  in the belief that in its bottom would be  found gold-bearing gravel. Six months of  tunneling resulted in drawing off the  waters of the lake last week, und the enterprising prospectors hope to recoup  sufficient to pay for the effort and expense.

Hursch was unable to find a  stub corresponding to the check, but iu  every respect it appeared g6nuine8 Snure  was not suspected for a moment.

The attention Of 'tlie Anglicau Synod,  now in session in Montreal, has largely  been taken up with discussion on Sabbath  observance, occasioned by the representation of the annual report on that subject.  The report deplores the growing tendency  to desecrate the Lord's day, aud denounced in particular.Sunday excursions,  amusements and diversions of all kinds.  It drew attention to the manner in which  the laws regarding the Sabbath were  violated at lake and seaside resorts, and  earnestly urged upon the clergy and  members of the church the duty of non-  participation in any form of Sunday  amusement. It was decided to send a  memorial to the Canadian Pacific railway  and Grand Trunk railway systems, and to  the Riehilieu & Ontario Navigation Company.  ;   Estimated at Thirty Millions.  P. II. Hebb, who is part owner of 40  Klondike claims, has arrived at Tacoma  from Dawson. He brings news that Dominion creek has jumped into prominence  as a gold producer of the first rank, excelling Bonanza and equalling Eldorado.  Its claims are not as rich as a limited  number on Eldorado, but its length is  greater. Dominion and Eldorado together will produce from $10,000,000 to  $12,000,000 at the spring clean-up. A conservative estimate places the winter output of the Klondike at $30,000,000, doubling the output of last winter.  TLB   PROSPECTUS  ISSUED.

Along the margins of the creek the surface is covered  vvifeli wash, consequently "little evidence  of mineralSation is yisible on the Gleopa>  tra exceptiug towards the eaSternline of  the clai���m adjoining  the Exchequer;  at  this point the ground rises^abrnptly, and  at a distance of about 350 feet from the  east  line of  the Exchequer  attains an  altitude of ahout 9001'eet above the creek.  1    ^In'cohSeqimnce-of'this-iTatifraP^^  ation of the ground, most of theoutcrops  are visible on the Exchequer, and all the  work ofimportance done has  been done  On this; claim.  The formation consists of the porphy-  rite, well known in this section, aud  granito. The contact of the two cuts  across both claims iu an easterly-westerly  direction with a southerly dip, and the  curve of this contact on the surface is due  to the erosion of the creek.  Of the width of this belt of porphyrite  I am not informed, but it is evidently the  same formation which runs across the  valley into the Athabasca claims* and  which on the west Side of the creek has  been proved to be a favorable formation  and contains rich veins.  The principal work done ou the Exchequer consists of one tunnel on the  south vein 50 feet long, one tunnel on the  north vein Go feet long, and one crosscut  tunnel which intersects a vein (presumably the north vein) at a distance of about  150 feet from the mouth. The vein or  veins have been traced over the summit  of the mountain by ��small cuts and  trenches to the eastern boundary of the  claim, where a small tunnel has been  driven. At this point the lead appears  to be heading directly for the dump on  the California claim below, from which  shipments of ore have lately been made.  The work done, therefore, demonstrates  that at least one vein and probably more  than one runs through the mountain continuously.  In the tunnel on the south lead the vein  at the mouth is prominent, consisting of  quartz from three to five feet wide slightly mineralised along the walls. In the  face the quartz is about nine inches wide  with accompanying stringers of quartz  and quartzite, the whole being about 20  inches wide, the mineral (chiefly iron pyrites and galena) being more plentiful.  Along the course of the tunnel the vein  varies in width with a general average  width of about 20 inches.  In the tunnel on the north lead the vein  at the mouth is not so large as the south  vein, being with accompanying bands and  mineralized matter about 24 inches wide.  Its appearance at this point is satisfactory,  the mineralization is heavy and the values are good. This tunnel has been carefully driven and swings to the north,  leaving the vein on the south side of the  Mr. Justice Hawkins will now be known  as baron Hawkins of Hitchin.

Poker players will be grieved to hear  that poker has been declared a game of  chance by high judicial authority. Within the last decade poker has become so  well acclimated in Austria-Hungary as to  become a social scandal. A paternal government resolved to suppress this dangerous amusement, and two years ago proceedings were taken against a poker club.  The statute making games of hazard  illegal, however,, dates back to 1074, and  therefore could hardly be expected to include poker, and so the pokerists got tlie  best of it. But the case was ultimately  carried, on appeal, before the supreme  court at Vienna, and that tribunal has  decided that the element of chance so far  predominates in the game over that of  skill as to bring poker within the scope of  the enactment. Indeed, the judges went  so far as to assert that "bluffing" where  intellect comes into play, was the worst  feature in the whole affair.  Work Temporarily Suspended.  Work on the Last Chance mine, on  Toad mountain, operated by the Kootenay British Columbia Mining Syndicate,  was temporarily suspended last week,  owing to the condition of the trail making it impossible to get supplies to the  mine.

The Bank of Commerce and the Bank of British North  America are performing a., magnificent  service Eor the Klondike. Gold dust is received on deposit Or in payment Of drafts.  It is accepted at $14 an ouuee subject to  assay, aud the'miuer is permitted to draw  checks against it at that rate.. If it is  clear dust the assay value is generally between $10 and $17, but the gold of different creeks varies in value. After accounts have beeu corrected according to  the assay, the gold is melted into bricks  and shipped in the custody of the Mounted Police to "the Outside." Both banks  have erected costly log premises. The  Commerce building cost in the vicinity of  $20,000.   The Browns Get to the Front.  D. E.

George Ross, K. of R. & S.  ��to @Drtbxm��/  -WEDNESDAY  JAN UARY 25, 1899  There is said to be friction between the  Semliu government and the provincial  board of health. The provincial board of  health should be re-organized. The interior of the province is "without representation on the board, which is unfair. The  province should be divided into health  districts, each district to have a separate  board of health, the chairmen of'which to  constitute the provincial board of health.  The filling in of Ward street, between  Baker aud Victoria streets, was one of  the improvements that would have been  made had the old city council been retained in office. The condition of that  part of the street is unsightly. But  it is said work will not be done by  the present city council, the mayor and  the chairman of the public works committee not beiugiu favor of it.  = The Rossland  Record tsays there is  nothing but good feeling existing between  jthe people of the towns of Rossland and  *Nelson,v, ^ej^Jbhis g^'qeiieeliubgt"al.>xa;XS;;ex^  ;Jlsts" jusjfo^^^^  l.somel��oV,",?hjus^  ���;ot batl;Dfej;]n|g.:r.eeqmmencesf:  iELeris ���at'raid>theS righ.tS!tliei"Pro|.estahtef  r-now enioyan thetp.rovinee'ot-aj^uebec.-are  fc"*."-"^ .iK.i*,.ft,iisV'''",:,'''*'i��~" "> �����' d-T *�� "*���  "* in"ieopardy.*"lf,the*preachers��and'priests  > would-only attend?��tQ; their ca]Iings,>and'  Mllow;jtherpeople/^  ^faftertfi^^^^  ^tfeel���ing;th^ Canad^wqiddk  :"RITtlALISM". .DENOUNGED.  ^"ifvtiie; CHurjiB; Does r^ot���"P.urse Itself the people  i^ttVK^ ���"'.-"" ". ���-  "Itei^stJaBlegr.am from!

Inspired by such encouragement, the women stenographers have  undertaken to open a Busiuess Wotnau's  Club, where she who works may find comfort and pleasure. There will be a little  of everything from a tearoom to a well-  pquipped gymnasium.  In an outlying district in Haddingtonshire, Scotland, a 10-year-old girl acts as  mail carrier. Her daily route is nearly  twenty miles long, andshe covers it a foot.  Every morning at 9.30, after sorting the  mails she starts out. She wears a short  skirt and the stoutest of boots and  leggings, and on very stormy days a  waterproof uniform. provided by the  authorities. About I p.m. she returns,  and after sorting the afternoon mails, delivers telegrams in the village. She was  only 12 or 13 when she began letter carrying. Her route leads through such scattered farmsteads and through so many  brooks and braes and hedges that a  bicycle or a horse would be of little use to  her.   Advised to Quit.  Hon. J. I. Tarte has given notice to sir  John Bourinot, the clerk of the house of  commons, to quit, because the latter criti-:  cised adversely sir Wilfrid Laurier's plan  for senate reform. In au editorial article  published in La Patrie, Mr. Tarte's paper,  and evidently written by T-irte himself,  La Patrie says that notwithstanding all  that has been said, it has no hesitation in '  declaring that in its opinion, and in the  opinion of the whole Liberal party, sir  John Bourinot's action is a strange piece  of impertinence. It says further that he  has no richt to express an opinion on questions in active politics. "If sir John Bourinot," adds La Patrie, "desires to meddle  with politics, we have no objection, but  let him resign his position. We. may,  however, assure him and those who think  like him that the Liberal party will never  tolerate any such intervention as that  which he has just shown. If Bourinot desires to make a common cause with sir  Charles Tupper let him find a constituency and take a seat on tlie benches of  parliament."  The Old Country all Right.  Notwithstanding that the coal strike in  South   Wales   caused   a   direct  loss of  $0,000,000 to Wales and many times that  to   the   country,   the prosperity  of the.  United Kingdom was so great for the nine  months ending December"31st, 1898,  that  the   revenue showed  a   net   increase of  $4,000,000.

The Liberals have no right to ask more  than fair play, but they should be satisfied  with nothing less. If the senate should  veto a proposal to'submit this matter to  an impartial tribunal, the incident would  supply one more argument for the abolition of the senate.  Suppression of the Smoke Nuisance.  Mechanical engineers look with favor  on the proposed substitution of mechanical draught in the place of chimney  draft for furnaces. The former can be  accomplished either by forcing the air  into a closed ash pit and maintaining  therein a pressure in excess of the atmosphere, or by exhausting the air aud gases  from the flue or uptake, thereby creating  a partial vacuum, causing a constauc onward air flow to the combustion chamber,  the first method being a forced, the latter  an induced draught, centrifugal fans  being used in both eases. Two main advantages are claimed���independence of  weather conditions and adaptabilit3r.  Economically there is also something to  be said in favor of the proposition, and  from a health point of view���the suppression of smoke���the advantage is manifest.  The chimney is an ancient device that in  large plants to be built will begin to disappear. ���  - Good Law,  [Toronto Telegram, January 19th.]  It is a pity that British Columbia  should be misrepresented. by journals  which entirely mistake the purpose of the  bill just introduced for the purpose of:  preventing the enforcement of labor contracts made outside the province. The  thoroughly commendable bill which Mr.  McPhersou of Vancouver is pressing to a-  fiual reading this week is intended to prevent laborers from being victimised by  the enforcement of contracts which they  sign in complete ignorance of the;sort of  work they have to do and the rate of  wages prevailing in the province. The'  McPhersou bill is not to be regarded as a  blow at Canadian unity by any Canadian  who remembers how the victims of the  Canadian Pacific railway were kept in the  Crow's Nest Pass road by threats of imprisonment for breaking .contracts, which  they ignorantly signed.

'; A correspondent of the Toronto News  has been interviewing Brastus Wiman.  The lirst subject that' was broached was  the annexation of Canada to the United  States. Mr. Wiman is very emphatic in  his remarks on tlie subject. "The annexation ol' Canada," said Mr. Wiman,  "to the United States, whatever  in the past might have' been its  probability, is now simply an impossibility. When it is realized that Canada  forms no less a proportion than <10 per  cent of. the area of the British empire;  that it is not only the largest but the  nearest colony to Great Britain; that the  integrity of the British empire is now  - more essential than ever; and that, fur-'  '* ther, in every relation that a motherland  can hold to a national offspring, there is  complete satisfaction and unity, with an"  ���.appreciative loyalty_on the part of the  Canadian people which nothing can ex---  ceed, it is simply folly to let the question  , of annexation have any standing whatever in the discussion of the relations be-  tween��th& two coimti'ies.^ .No, commercial  e.v'poucyvhoweyerjdGastie, onthe.part/off.the"  ' ^sWiTi1t����i>$fcates,;:n^^^^^  1 \tcnbminTtti'icatioirn" ibyi ��� Tejpe&jL'/ofAhpndjxi^:  , ��. rpj5yilege^"Vp.^I��.Qt,h,nel\:^li,m itati)|ns;^ao^4'tfn'e^  -  /Clin���cha1fget'thT&se^  ��   pebpleuhSlieir &fcta\jhnien1^:^ea^ Brii-"'  . �� rtih.* "They'iare Stead'tetl.yS'-loyal ftbj:their.

This "policy" by the way is interesting���and in a measure flattering���to  the average American. For it is not often  in discussing the question of Great  Britain's government of her colonies that  she ever thinks of taking a leaf out of the  United States' book. England dearly  loves to play her own bat���as the cricketing phrase has it���and therefore it is the  more surprising to read these sentiments  from the lips of one of London's best informed men on South African matters.  In speaking of the recent outbreak, he  said:  "The logic of events is driving England  toward interference iu the Transvaal even  more strongly than the United States was  driven to intervene in Cuba. President  Kruger has become very friendly to England since he lost his brief hope of German support, kindled by emperor  William's'telegram. He is probably  an honest fanatic, but he is in the hands  of a ring, all rich, whose object is to  squeeze as much as possible out of the  foreigners."    - ���  .'  The threatened creation of a "Jameson  day" proved to' be a flash iu the pan. And  Johaunesberg did not witness the spectacle of the gallant doctor being burned  in. effigy. Since Jameson returned to  South Africa he has grown to be very  popular .with all classes of the people, and  it is scarcely probable that he will jeopardise the reputation by repeating the  "Jameson raid." He is perfectly well  aware that the same frothy agitators who  played at rebellion three years, ago, who  implored Jameson to come to their aid,  and then fled Johannesberg when lighting  seemed imminent, are behind the present  agitation. . Thist lesson he learned then  at their hands seems hardly'; like to need |  to be ..impressed: upon him again in this,  the year of our Lord 1S99.

They are quite as important and ever  present problem as the dodging of hansoms in the Strand. Like the sandwich  men they are always with us���that is, if  we are interested in the South.African  question. ���  The available English force of troops  in South Africa consists of 30,000 men and  they can be mobilized on the Transvaal  border in three days. It is well known that  the English colonists and their ss'mpath-  izers still have in their possession the  30,000 rifles which were bought by them  before "the Raid" and this in spite of tlie  fact that the president offered a reward  of $100,000 for information as to their  whereabouts.  There is little likelihood that in the  closing years of president Kruger's life  he will ever have more difficult problems  of state to face than the adjustment of  some such air affair as the trouble  occasioned by his recent edict against  piano playing and the washing of pet dogs  on Sunday, which aroused the women of  Johannesburg into a frenzy. But after  his .death���then those 30,000 rifles are  likely to come out of hiding; and hundreds of England's mothers will be  mourning for their sons lying dead, out  under the Southern Cross.  The Treraont Hotel  exists between the States would not seem  to be remote."  Mr. Wimaii, when asked how he would  propose to improve the permanency of the  loyalty of Canadians, replied: "Not only  has a widespread revolution occurred in  Canada, but in Great Britain the growth  of the imperial idea respecting the colonies, has completely change^ the sentimental relation to,them. Perhaps, because of  the isolation of Cireat Britain from other  powers, and the "necessity fOr strengthening the bonds that unite distant portions  of the empire inore closely; perhaps from  a desire to increase the .stippli.es of food,  having never more than a month's supply  on hand, and bring bread-producing areas  more under her own control from various  causes and influences; and the result has  been that never before in history, has  been witnessed a closer union in sentiment than now exists between the mighty  empire of Great Britain occupying so  large a portion of the earth's surface."  THE   BOERS   AND   THE   BRITISH.  In Case of an Outbreak Johannesburg Would  be Razed to the Ground.  Peace, calm, gentle peace, finds little  favor either among the colonial correspondents of the big London dailies or in  the heart of the great British public.  They both dearly love a "shindy"���both  are equally desirous of England's being a  militant force among the world's nations.  And, it must be admitted, they go into  any scheme that tends to keep Britannia's  flag fluttering in the wind with all the  force of your average Britisher, whether  it be waxing wroth over the extravagant  price he has to pay for a bottle of "Baws"  m some out of the way hole on the continent, or the deep interest he has been recently taking in the threatened  outbreaks against the English colonists in the Transvaal. Recent events  in the Boer country began to look  promising, from the point of view of England militant, when the cables announced  that Cecil Rhodes had sailed for "home."  Militant England's "little war" seemed  averted.  At the same cime the editorial writers  began to point out that as Rhodes had  ;volcanIc?li lfeV sBffrs ting \ f of'th i'Ksfnte'd idrin  the last. weekSspt-IJeceinher^Tyith-a. lurid  f1ig.h:Hi!iil'^  ufqrld,! toward* the.

And,,      after       'hearing'     of-  these changes, it is easy to understand"  what the Boer hewspaper iueaut when,  hi discussing the prospect of a war with  Great Britain, it said grimly: "That on  the first British act of war the women and  =ehildren=at^Johannesburg���be=given=-24=  Jiours to leave, and that the whole place  'be then razed and that the perpetrators  of these turbulent proceedings, if caught,  should be thrown into the deep shafts of  their mines, with the debris of their machinery for costly shrouds, and the whole  of Johannesburg will exult if the Afrikander Ward is converted into a gigantic  rubbish heap, as a mighty tombstone for  the shot-down authors of the monstrous  deed," ���       '  ���That the military forces Of the Boer  'government are capable of razing the  town of Johannesburg is perfectly apparent to those who have watched the progress of events iu the three years that  have elapsed since Janieson's raid. No  Indian Sepoy bound to a cannon's mouth  was ever more certain of a most horrible  death than are the residents at Johannesburg at the moment war against them is  declared. They may not, it is true, be  bound to the cannon's month. But they  might as well be, for they are penned in  by Boer fortresses as so many rats in a  trap.  With that tireiessenergy and continual  plodding, which has ever been a characteristic of the race, the Boers have  erected, just outside the city and commanding it completely, a large fortress.  It is a remarkable structure, considering  that it has been erected in three years  and is fortified with no fewer than 100 of  the most modern types of rifled cannon.  The fortress stands on a hill and has one  feature .that marks it as singular among  fortresses the world over. Instead  of its guns being pointed away from  the city' they all bear directly  upon the town. Aud that is why  the editor of the Rand Post can speak  with so much accuracy when he alludes  to "razing the town." The fortress was  built to command the city���not defend it.  it is all very well for conservative  Britains to pooh-pooh the idea of the  Boers rising against the British colonies  on the ground that they have neither an  army or a supply of arms iu the event of  a force being raised. The fact remains  that the Boer fortress at Johannesburg is  well fortified and garrisoned as any force  of English troops would find to their cost  if they attempted to atorm it. Pretoria,  the capital, winch is 25 miles north of  Johannesburg, is so fortified as to be  practically  impregnable  and  the   Boer  IVlALOfJE & TRECILLUS  J.'ROPKIETOUS  Headquarters for Miners and Prospectors  THE fiKST BRANDS OK  and  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  B&&&&$&&&&&&&&^^  Bar Glasswape...

Hall Caine, the English novelist, is in  Chicago. During his stay in the western  metropolis it is his purpose to study some  of the phases of slum life and the condition of the working girl there.  In a newspaper interview the other day  he said: "The fate of a nation rests upon  the women. . She gives to the child most  of its color; more of her is breathed into  thefuture'citizen than thereisofthe man;  she is the inward inspiration of man's  being. How important then, that work  for the improvement of her condition  should progress.  "I found in New York that the conditions under which the working girl lives  are much the same as they are in England. I intend to find out what they are  in Chicago. I find this question of the  conditions surrounding emp'uyed women  the thing-in which I take th- most interest at the present time. You see these  women by aud by are to be married; they  are to be mothers; they are to give us  children that are to develop into women  and men. The men will be citizens.  They will take part iu government.  Their intelligence should be of the highest order. This is only to be brought  about by beginning with the mother-to-  be. She must have her conditions improved, be better protected, better cared  for, given more to live for, insured that  care and upholding that will euable the  best in her to come out.  "In Chicago's slum life I want to see the  many phases of life to be found there.  Yet I find that large cities differ little  from each other. What I saw in Paris���  the men asleep in the parks, the young  girls asleep there���I found in London, aud  what I saw in London I saw in New Fork.  It really come to this, that humanity is  about the same the world over."  \j. Nelson Mining Transfers.!    .-.'.���.

The Mollie Gibson company is employing some 17  men in development work  upon its Kokanee creek property.   The  tunnel is now in S00 feet.    Only such ore  as is encountered in development is taken  out.   No attempt is being made at shipping, but there are 100 sacks of ore which  have been moved as far as it can  be raw-  hided.   Before any regular shipments can  be made the company will be obliged to  construct   a   10-mile wagon  road   to   a  point on the Outlet, 12 miles from Nelson.  On  the Joker property, over the divfde  from the Mollie Gibson, the owners have  sunk a shaft 70 feet.   They report having  a 2-i'oot  body of ore all  the way,   which  gives an average assay value of $00 in  gold.    The Republic Miner.  John Ii. Reavis and Fred Barker have  got out tlie first number of The Republic  Miner at the town of Republic, state of  Washington. As is usual with first numbers, it is largely historical.
