 HAVE BEEN PREPARING TO FIGHT  THE   AMERICAN   TROOPS  t0v^oxaI Jjul  *Q?^  For  Months,   And   Are   Not  Avoid   Conflicts   That  Deem Inevitable.  Disposed  They  to  Chicago, March 28.���G. P.  Farrell, captain  and assistant   surgeon of  the First  California volunteers, is in Chicago.    His  regiment was  the first to reach Manila  last  Juno, and   the captain   was in   the  island   of Luzon   continuously   until the  * last   week of January, two months ago.  lie   had .unusual  opportunities to study  the   condition in   the island.-*, as he was  selected last October to make a tour of investigation   extending   from   Manila   to  Dagupin.    He  speaks  Spanish   fluently,  and for that reason was chosen  to carry  on   many negotiations   with Aguinaldo.  He has traversed the country where the  American troops are now fighting, and  speaking of the lbiality said:  "The railway line extends up the middle  of the valley along which our troops had  been advancing. The country in which  recent operations have taken place is very  flat and is simply a succession of rice  fields. Between this valley and theseais  a low range of hills and on the other haud  is the coast* range' of mountain?, perhaps  some 5000 or C000 feet high. The rice  fields are quite small and separated by  dykes so they can be flooded. It is excellent for defeusive operations. The natives  can use the dykes or trenches, retreating  from one'to auother, then in abandoning  a position they can flood the fields and  thus hinder the advance of our men. I  have not, seen it mentioned in the dispatches, I have no doubt many of these  fields have been fllooded.'  What do you believe will be the effect  of the present campaign ?  "There will be several pitched battle.-.,  then Aguinaldo's army will be dispersed ;  but the American army in the Philippines  will have to contend with guerilla warfare for several years to come. The natives will not submit, even if the main  body of the army is demolished and  scattered. Still 1 do not think the prospect is one that should be alarming or  distressing."  How did you happen to make the trip  through the islands ?"  "It was   found advisable to ascertain  what the   natives in   the interior were  doing and what seemed to be their attitude    towards    Americans.      American  officers   in  uniform   who   attempted  to  traverse   this   part  of the country had  been arrested and sent back, so I traveled  as a civilian.   That, was late in  October.  .As 1 am of English  birth,   I. allowed the  natives to believe that I was an Englishman ; in addition I spoke Spanish,  and  I  found   no' difficulty- in-, -getting 'aF>ng,'  although I was continually stopped .and  questioned.   At every town soldiers demanded of  me a  pass from Aguinaldo.  The fact that .his name "was mentioned  everywhere, and that he was regarded as  their leader, gave me some idea of his  influence in the island.   I went the entire  length  of,"the railway-from Manila  to  Dagupin, on the other- coast,  and everywhere found  the natives arming themselves and drillingconstantly.    The only  topic  of - conversation   was   the coming  'fight with the Americans.   They seemed  to regard it as inevitable and not disposed  to avoid it.    Even little boys were marching up and down the streets beiugdrillecl.  1 never saw more military enthusiasm in  aiiy country.     Of course the drilling was  very awkward and the discipline poor,  but the soldiers  were intensely earnest  and   enthusiastic   everywhere,   aud   the  fact that new arms were being shipped in  aud distributed showed some well-defined  policy  of   preparation   being   put   into  effect."  How   did   the   natives   get   these  improved arms?     ���        y .  -'T'hey were shipped in during last slim-  ;mer_,and_.autumu.==Ass_sobn=as^Aguiuardo=  established his government he began to  lew faxes on every yillageand demanded  tiubute from residents in and around  Manila, and a great deal of this money  \yas immediatelyexpended for arms and  ammunition.

They had a small  rowboat in tow. Two of the men started  for the Marblehead life-saving station.  They were finally forced ashore on Cedar  Point, after a terrible experience, and  were almost dead from cold and exhaustion. Subsequently the tug Silver  Spray sighted the three men in the sailboat, and after hard 'work managed to  reach them. The men were in a pitiable  condition, being almost frozen aud completely exhausted.   <  McArthtir Keeps Moving.  Manilla, March 2S.���McArthui'sdivision  advanced nearly two miles without encountering opposition this morning. Oq  approaching Balacan, a town of 25,000  people, he halted, preparatory to attacking it. The heat, which was intense, being ninety degrees on the coast and fully  100 degrees iii the interior, made the  Americans suffer a great deal. But in  spite of this, every mau was eager to proceed. A detachment of Filipino prisoners  was escorted iuto Manilla today. Their  appearance aroused great interest as they  marched from the railroad depot to prison.  The rebels have��unloaded about 500 men  from a train, half a mile in front of Mc-  Arthur's forces, with the object of reinforcing the Filipino garrisons atBalacan  and Guiguinto, on the other side of the  railroad leading to Malolos. The fact that  the railroad is in operation from here to  our front greatly facilitates the transportation of supplies to the troops. Before the break in the i*oad was repaired,  the transportation of supplies was very  uncertain.        Dominion Parliament.

MAN MURDERED AT CRANBROOK  BY   AN   ITALIAN,  Who  so  Roads  Far  Has  Escaped Arrest���Wagon  Wanted���A Point Decided���Ice  on Slocan Lake, Etc.  W. H. Bullock-Webster, chief o! provincial   police,   received  a   telegram   this  forenoon  from F.  It.  Morris,  provincial  constable at Cranbrook, stating  that a  murder   had  been committed there last  night, and that an Italian, who had field  from the town, was suspected of having  committed the crime..    Mr. Webster at  once wired instructions to have all  possible precautions taken   to  prevent the  escape    of    the    murderer,    and    -this  afternoon received another telegram stating  that constable   Barns and constable  Morris are working on the case at Cranbrook,    and    that  an   officer has   been  engaged    at    Creston    to    watch    the  trail     leading     to     Port    Hill.      The  Italian      is      described     as      a     man  of  about   five    feet,    eight    inches    in:  height, 25 years of age, dark complexion,  with  stubby  beard  of  about  a week's  growth.   No further information  as   to  the name of the murderer or his victim or  the circumstances of the crime could be  learned from the police.  '   LATER.  Cranbrook, March 28.���[Special to The  Tribune."]���Terrence Ryan, whose home  was in Montreal, was murdered here last  night. It is supposed that the crime was  committed by an Italian, who mistook the  murdered man for another with whom he  had a row. A few days ago a jockey of  rather questionable character, who had  been ordered out of town, returned and  last night had a street fight with  several Italians. The theory of the police  is that the Italians laid in wait for the  jockey, and mistaking Ryan for their man  killed him. No arrests have been made,  but the police are taking steps to prevent  the escape of all who are suspected of  having a hand in the crime.  A PLAN FOR THE BETTERMENT  OF   MINING.

Ottawa, March 2S.���John Jowsey, a  wealthy farmer resident in Eardley township, about seven miles above Aylmer,  committed suicide yesterday morning  about three o'clock, by placing the muzzle  of a rifle in his mouth and pulling the  trigger. The bullet entered the roof  of the man's month, and passing through  his head stuck in the ceiling. Jowsey had  been sickly for the past two years and of  late had become despondent. He was at  one time a captain in the 13rd battallion  of this city and was fifty-four years of  age. He leaves a wife and ten children.  The deceased was well known in the Ottawa valley. ____   Thrilling Experience on.Lake Erie.  Sandusky, Ohio, March 2S.���Five fishermen of this city���H. C. Payson and his  three sons and Louis Roberts���have  reached their homes here after a most  thrilling experience on lake Erie. They  went out in a small sailboat to lift their  nets and were caught iu a terrific storm,  which carried away the spar of the  boat   aud   drove   the   ice   down   upon  Martin and Sifton May Meet. .  Winnipeg, March 28.-VThere is no telling but that Hour Joseph Martin and Hon.  Clifford Sifton may meet on the political  platform in Winnipeg. It is settled beyond doubt that the"Ottawa "machine"  nominee will not be tolerated by-Winnipeg Liberals, independent of government  offices and favors. They will nominate a  straight independent Liberal candidate,  and Martin of British Columbia, as representing the best elements of Liberalism in  the west, will be expected to takea haud.  On the other hand Sifton's friends expect  that he will come west to champion the  "machine" candidate, if one is placed in  the field.           The Irrepressible Conflict.

G. O. Buchanan, president of the Kaslo  1 Board of Trade, is in Nelsou today.    The  Kaslo board held a meeting last night to\  take action on a proposal f6r.improving|  the   transportation" facilities. onr Upper'  Duncan river.   The owners of the Ban-,  nockburn group of claims, which are situate on Hall creek, a tributary of Duncan  river, laid the following proposition before  the  board:   They will guarantee to put  on a first-class river steamer immediately,  if the  government will   build a, wagou  road along,the west bank of  the  river  from Steamboat Landing to Hall creek, a  distance of eleven miles, and  will then  build a wagon road' themselves up'Hall*  creek for a distance of four miles.   There  is now a good, trail along the-river, and  the estimate for.making it a wagon road  is $900 a- mile. _ There are a number of  claims at the Head ef Hall creek  and a  number  on   the   West  Fork of Duncan  river.   All  this country would  be made  tributary to Kaslo if there were roads  and trails.   As it is now, the  trails run  over a divide and down the Trout Lake  slope.-   Ore from claims on the West Fork  has been   packed out  over these   trails,  while the natural outlet is down the creek  to Duncan river.   As there is only a $15,-  000 appropriation for roads and trails for  Slocan riding, the member does not know  where to   place   it.     There  are  several  roads that ShOurd;b_e built," but no one of  M_-M^*M_bej3ujl_tiftirj es.s_,tJbfafi_$lO,000.-__���  Will be Promoted.  Washington, March 28;���As a result of  his gallantry and judicious management  ofthe campaign against the insurgents,  the war department lias practically determined to appoint Arthur R. Macarthur,  now a major-general of volunteers and a  lieutenant-colonel in the regular army, to  be a brigadier-general in the regular service. Major-general Anderson, now on  duty with general Otis, is to be appointed  a brigadier-general in the regular service.  Took Chances and Got Killed.  Manila, March 28.���Prince Loewenstein,  who was with Wheaton's command on the  morning of the twenty-sixth, took refreshments to the officers of the second  Oregon on the firing line. He was cautioned as to the danger, but advanced with  the line when it charged the insurgent  entrenchments." He was killed and a  friend with him wounded. His remains  have been delivered to friends in Manila.  "George Washington" Was Right.  At a recent competition of the Nelson  Gun Club, H. E. Beasley and W. H.  Hawley broke four birds out of a possible  five, George Steele breaking three. Beasley and Hawley shot off the tie for first  prize, the former winning and the hitter  clstiming second pri__e. Steele claimed  that under the rules of the American  Shooting Association, he was entitled to  second prize. The dispute, wag referred  to the sporting editor of the Miner, who  claims to have, been sporting editor of  the Montreal Herald, who decided in  favor of Hawley. Steele was not satisfied  with the decision and bet $5 that his contention vvas correct, the decision to be  left to the spotting editor of the Field and  Stream* New York. An answer was received this morning stating that if the  shoot was held under American Association rules and no stipulation made, that  first and Second prizes were to go to "high  guns," Steele gets second money; also  under class shooting he wins. American  Shooting Association rules provide that  all shooting shall be class shooting, unless  otherwise specified. The shooting having  been made under association rules and no  stipulations having been made, Steele  wins second prize and bet.  Searching for Bodies.  Chicago, March 28.���Six engines are at  work today on the ruins of the Armour  Felt Works endeavoring to extinguish  the embers, so that a thorough search can  be made for bodies. Jeremiah Steel, who  leaped from the fourth story into a fireman's net, is still unconscious, and it is  thought he will die. The loss of property  is estimated at $400,000.  Adjourned for a Fortnight.  London,    March    28.���The    house    of  commous  adjourned   today   until   April  ioth."   -    .- ���   . : .-  Celebrated Painter Dead.  London, March 28.���Birket Foster, water  color painter, is dead.  There should be a good attendance at  the meetiug of the South Kootenay Board  of Trade this evening when the proposition of J. J. Campbell of the Hall Mines  for the   betterment of the   mining  and  smelting industries will be taken into consideration.    The Kaslo Board of Trade  has been requested  to have delegates at  the meeting, and an   interesting discussion of the lead question may be expected.  The   proposal   of Mr. Campbell,   as explained at Friday evening's  meeting of  the board, is that steps be taken to induce  the Dominion authorities to admit free of  duty all lead, which   being   mined  and  smelted   in   Canada    is   refined    in   the  United States. If this is done he says that  the conditions for local smelting will be improved without placingadditional burdens  upon   the mining industry,   and in the  favorable market which it will secure for  the   Canadian manufacturers   of lead it  should create an increased home consumption* of   lead, which   would   benefit the  mines and smelters alike.    The  United  States government at present permits of  refining of foreign lead in bond, so that  all that is necessary to secure the desired  chauge is to induce the Domiuion authorities to admit free of duty the Canadiau  lead, which after being smelted in Canada  is refined in the United States.  As matters stand at" present the United  States smelters pay the Canadian mine  owners the New York  market price for  lead less the United States duty, and as  all Canadian lead bullion has to be sent to  the   United   States   to   be   refined   the  smelters in Canada are required to make  the same deductions for duty.   However,  neither in the case of the United States  smelter nor in the case of the Canadian  smelter was the duty ever paid upon Canadian lead.   The lead in the ore shipped  direct from the mines of the Slocan to the  United States smelters is smelted in bond,  and the United States smelters in fixing  their treatment, charges take the profit  into account which they make through  the "export "of-their" Canadian .lead and  give the Canadian mine owner a better  rate than they otherwise, could afford to  .do.       It . is   a    common   'mistake   for  people   to   assume  -that    the    United  States       smelter -    makes      a       clean  profit* of one and ahalf cents per pound  upou all Canadian lead smelted in bond.  That such is not the case, and  that the  saving effected through the export of the  Canadian .ore is   taken   into "account  is  shown ,by   the  rates- which    American,  smelters quote for freight and treatment  on Slocau ore.   A common rate for freight  and treatment on this ore is $10 per ton.  The  freight rate  on the  lead from   the  western smelter to New York would add  $4 to the cost, so that wiien the American  smelter  exports  its lead   it realizes   but  little more than the New York price less  the^ duty.   If there was no duty in the  -United   States   the  price  of lead   iti the  United States would drop to the world's  market price and  the difference  gained  at present by the evasion of the duty on  Canadian lead would require to be added  to the present treatment rate. The United  States smelters having dry ores to smelt  -Te_qulra_the-Slocan_ores_for_mixing.even  though they are handled at a loss in so  far as they,are separately concerned.   If  the conditions were to become less favorable they might be required to use other  lead ores.  Xf, this concession, With respect to the  free entry of Canadian lead refined in  Canada were secured from the Canadian  government, the higher 'price obtainable  for the lead in fclie Canadian tuarket. In  Cothpetition with the lead from other  countries, Would enable the Canadian  smelters to offer loWer rates than at pt'e*  sent td the Cahudiau -rimers, in order to  underbid the United States smelter?*. The  lead having free entry into Canada after  having been smelted in Canada would be  worth tnol'e to them than to the United  States smelters, and this advantage  could be shared by the Canadian smelter with tlie _ .Canadian miner.  If the OanadiaTi smelters were able to  secure the lead production of Kootenay in  this way there would be ore enough offering to keep a furnace at Trail and a  furnace at Nelson running steadily. The  practical working out of this changed condition of affairs would be that the lower  smelting rate charged would encourage  the development of a number of low grade  properties which it will not pay to work  under existing conditions. This would  tend to increase the production of lead,  probably to such an extent that iu a very  short time a refinery might be profitably  operated, which would find in the Orient  a market for such lead as constituted a  surplus in the Canadian market.  With respect to the Canadian market  for lead at the present time, the annual  imports of lead into the Dominion are already greater than the entire product of  the lead mines of Kootenay. This demonstrated that there is already a home  market for the output of the Canadian  lead mines, and it appeared absurd that  before the product of the Canadian mines  could reach the Canadian-consumer it had  to pass through United States refineries  and be subjected to a Canadian import  duty. The'imports of Canadian lead amounted to 0,000,000 pounds of raw lead upon which a duty of 15 per cent was  charged.   The result of this was that the  Canadian lead manufacturer, in a country  iti which lead was produced, had to pay  the worlds price for lead, plus the freight  to London, plus the freight to Canada,  plus 15 per cent duty at the Canadian  frontier.  Mr. Campbell advocates the free entry  into Canada of Canadian bullion refined  in the United States as a first step in the  solution of the lead smelting question, in  preference to increasing the duties on  manufactured lead :  Firstly���Because it should be easier to  obtain this concession from the government, as it should not arouse the antagonism of any manufacturers or consumers;  it would not increase the price of raw  lead and would not be in opposition to the  principles of the present government.  Secondly���Because it would be effective  as soon as existing contracts for ore expire, while a protective duty would not  become effective until capital was interested and manufactures started, and because it does not interfere with a placing  of a duty ou manufactures of lead, which  is very desirable if the goverment can be  induced to impose it.  Thirdly���That while the Eastern manufacturer would not get the advantage of  the whole of the 15 per cent rebate in  duty, they wouldtget some of it, and if  the government could then be induced to  increase the duty on lead manufactures  the demand for pig lead would be increased.  The customs arrangements necassary  for carrying out this proposed change  would be simple. The lead smelters would  forward to the customs department  weekly, declarations stating that the  quantity of bullion aud lead contents  thereof shipped, and the name of the refinery to which it was shipped. An equal  amount of lead would be accepted free of  duty from that refinery, which would  notifiy the customs department at which  port of entry it desired to enter the lead.  A Spring Opening.  The spring opening of millinery at the  store of Fred Irvine & Co. yesterday and  today was a great success, the large store  being  crowded   from  morning  to night  with   ladies   who   were  greatly   pleased  with the magnificent display of the latest  styles in French and American millinery.  Miss Darveau, the milliner in charge, who  is an artist ather business, and her staff  of assistants were kept very busy showing and fitting on' the latest novelties in  spring and Easter hats and bonnets.   The  firm reports that the sales far. exceeded  thfeh*"most,sanguine expectations,*and in-,  this connection it is gratifying to know-  that some of the most rstylish and expensive hats and bonnets were purchased by  ladies   visiting   the opening from   Rossland,  Kaslo and   other outlying   towns.  The fine display of goods in all depart-  ' ments of the store would do credit to any  city in Canada, and in no store in the Do-'  minion are the goods of a' higher quality  or more tastefully arranged.   The  business  is   now complete .in every department, Lthe firm  having secured  the services of Mrs. Small, late of Vancouver,  who is a first-class dressmaker and whom  the firm  can safely recommend to their  customers and patrons.  'The dressmaking  parlors are located oh the second  floor, in  the rooms recently occupied  by the Tribune Publishing Company.  This enterprising liriu'shoulo. be encour:  aged by the ladies of Nelson/who have  not in the past had the opportunity of  seeing brought to the city such an extensive aud select stock of goods, and who  have been placed at the disadvantage of  having to send to outside cities for their  purchases in this line. As the firm have  _been__importing���their���goods-direct-from-  the leading manufacturers in England,  they are in a position to sell goods in all  departments as low if not lower than they  can be purchased in eastern cities.  Of Importance Was Transacted, Other Than  Appointing an Auditor and Fixing the  Rebate on Light Rates.  There was not much entertainment offered at last evening's session of the city  couucil, and the complaint of II. D. Beck,  caretaker of the city cemetery, as to the  unprofitable outlook for the bury season,  was the only departure from dry routine.  Alderman Fletcher brought this matter  to  the attention of the couucil.    He explained that when the council appointed  Beck caretaker it was arranged that in return for free quarters in tbe cemetery the  caretaker should   dig all pauper graves  free of charge, and that he should have a  monopoly  of   the  digging  of  all other  graves and bo entitled to a fee of five dollars for each.   Since the  caretaker had  been     installed    he    fouud    that    the  pauper graves, for the digging of which  he received nothing, had averaged about  one per week, while the paying graves  were few and far between.   The result  was that while he found plenty to  do  about the cemetery there was no money  in the job, and as he was obliged to use  powder  for   blasting  out  boulders  and  hardpan in the grave-digging, he found  himself out of pocket.  It required some time time for the council to decide whether the caretaker should  be paid a salary of $10 or $15 a mouth  over and above his fees, but the latter  amount was eventually decided upon on  motion of alderman McKillop.  Electric Light Rebates" for. March. ,  The finance committee presented a report recommending a number of accounts  for payment. It also recommended that  the rebate on electric light rates for the-  mouth of March be 10 per cent off the  ordinary rates and 20 per cent off the  hotel aud all-night rates, provided payment of the same is made on or before  April 10th. The report was received and  adopted.    The Amendment Not Necessary.  W. A. Galliher,. city solicitor, had a  communication before the council, in  which he stated that by.virtue of certain  amendments which had been made to the '  Speedy Incorporation of Towns Act the  City of Nelson had all power to divert and  store water and to use the same for all  purposes of the municipality. This  amendment met all the requirements of  the city and'the privileges required were  not restricted to the Water Clauses Consolidation Act. The communication was  received and filed. ' ���  Presented With a Jewel.  At the regular meeting of Kootenay  Lodge No. US, Independent Order, of Oddfellows, held last night, the officers and  members presented A�� It.

William Hill, who is interested in a  sawmill at the upper end of Slocan lake,  is in Nelson. He reports the ice so thick  on the upper end of the lake that his firm  will have to saw a channel through it, in  order to get out their tug and barge. This  firm has been on the lake since 1S02, and  this is the first time that ice has in any  way interfered with their operations.  "Bill" Can Walk.  W. A. Galliher did not leave for Ottawa  this  morning, as he expected, his pass,  over the Canadian   Pacific  railway   not  having arrived.     No answer has been received   from  the   railway   people  as  to  whether the request for free transportation will be honored, and in the meantime  "Bill" is patiently waiting.  ������ ,    .       ���.   A Reasonable Request.  W. A. Macdonald had a- request before ���  the council for the payment "of $11.05  which he. expended in thawing out and  repairing tho water service in connection,,  with his residence. The weak spot in the  water service was on the street, and Mr.  Macdonald contended that the duty of  the corporation was to deliver water to  the line of the consumer's property, and  .make all necessary repairs to the water  pipes on the streets. The communication  was-referred to the public works commit-"  tee, and as there are several such cases  the disposition made of the matter will be  interesting.

The mayor and city clerk were authorized to sigh a promissory note for $10,000  to cover the city's overdraft at the Bank  of Montreal pending the receipt of taxes.  'The action; of the South Kootenay Board  of Trade in making W. A. Galliher a delegate to Ottawa upon the question of public buildings was endorsed.  Messrs. Macdonald & Johnson submitted  tbe report of Mrs. Gilbert against the City  for the care of pauper patients. It  amounted to $435.25. The matter was  laid over pending the receipt of infqrnia-  tion from the provincial authorities.  The question as to whether Theo Mad- .  sen shall be given a water connection at  the city's expense was referred to the  public works committee. The city engineer reported in this connection that it  will cost over $100 to give the service  desired.  On motion of alderman Fletcher seconded by alderman McKillop, the council  decided to pay the account of A. W. Peck  for auditing the city books. It calls for $75.  On motion of alderman Thomson  seconded by alderman McKillop, A, W.  Peck was appointed auditor for the city.- THE TRTBUjSTE :  KELSON, B. C, TUESDAY, MARCH 28, 1899.  ���s  k  i*-  v.

While the members of the South Kootenay Board of Trade are discussing the  lead question this evening*,  they  might  very profitably take up the question of  the deferred payments which the smelters of Kootenay are entitled to under  the provisions of fche act for the encouragement of silver-lead  smelting,   which  was passed in 1895.   By the terms of this  "'apt" tlie lfite  Conservative   government  proposed to encourage the home smelting  of Canadian ores to the extent of $150,000,  jbhe aicHp be extended Over a period of  five drears and the payments under the  the act for any One year not to exceed  $3b.Q00,'Unlfess there should be a, surplus  jelfcoverofthe $30;000 set apart'for the  previous year.   The bonus to be paid the  smelters was fixed at fifty cents per ton  fpr .each ton of ore smelted between July  1st, 1^95, and the first day of July, 1900,  and was payable upon silver-lead or gold  ores.   This act will expire on the first of  July, 1900, and although it has been in  force for close upon four years, not one  cient has been  paid out under it.   Three  smelters have operated and, treated ore  upon which they have .claimed the government bonus, but because the Dominion  authorities were dissatisfied with the returns sent in from one smelter* they have  ,so far refused to pay any bonus.   Since  the Hall Mines smelter has been in operation it has earned something like $35,000  bonus money under this act.   The company's statements have not been disputed,  the liability is admitted, but because another smelter has sent in unsatisfactory,  returns the Dominion authorities have  refused to pay a claim which they are altogether satisfied with.  Bostock's is the Eight Plan."  [Toronto Globe, March 23rd.]  Mr. Bostock, the member for Yale and  Cariboo,  believes   that   the government  should amplify the project looking to the  establishment of telegraphic communication between the Yukon district and the  outside world by constructing a line from  Dawson to Quesnelle, to connect with the  "government telegraph* between that point  and  Ashcroft on   the; Canadian'Pacific  railway.*   It is now proposed to ;string a\  wire from Bennett tq Dawson.   Connec-'  tion   will    be , established   -atv. Bennett  and   the    line    of   .-the    White" *Pass  railway,    terminating     at       Skagway,  and   * communication     will      be      had*  between ' these    points . and ' Vaneou-.  ver and Victoria by steamer. :Mr. Bostock  holds that this is a mistake, and he will  endeavor to impress the government with,  the  wisdom of his view.   .The distance  between Quesnelle and- Dayvson is about.  1200 miles, and .the cost of stringing a  wire between these two points, would in  -round numbers be $600,000, adopting Mr."  Hosmer's estimate of ,$500 a mile., Though  the amount is large, it is the .opinion of  Mr. Bostock- that the expenditure would  be justified.    The local advantages would  be great, because the settlements along the.  "way, suchasHazeltonandTelegraph Creek,  would be' brought  into, communication'  with the outside world and their development advanced.   The .delay involved in  the steamship voyage from Skagway to  Vancouver or Victoria would be avoided,  an all-Canadian line. ,pf  comrriunicatiSn^  be established, and Dawson'-Giffl1would  be  brought into immediate-porntfiunica^  tion vv*_ith Ottavya,_wl*ncli��_wouId=greaSly=  facilitate the good government of thedis-  triefc.   It is likely that an enormous investment of British capital will be made  in the  Yukon, and the interests Of  the  country, as well as of investors, would be  materially  advanced   by  establishing a  direct  connection   between Dawson and  London.

"I doubt ii' there is another community  anywhere that has so many strange and  picturesque characters in proportion to  its population as Dawson City," says  George N. Adams of Los Angeles, California. "Among all the mining camps I  have known, from Virginia City t;o Cripple  Creek, I have never seen anything like  the assemblage of uncommon people from  all parts of the world now in Dawson  City. The thirstri'or Klondike gold has  affected people iu every climate and of  every race. There are Armenians, Brazilians, Scandinavians, Japanese, Hawaiiaus,  South Africans, and even Icelanders/The  biggest gambling place there is run by a  native Australian, and there are two  homesick and disconsolate Turks working  in a restaurant until navigation reopens  and they can get away. Every European  nation is represented in Dawson. The  Scotch and Irish predominate."  Mr. Adams arrived from Dawson City a  week ago. He has been in the Klondike  region since September, 1S97.

"Mrs. Ellison, who says 9he is a daughter of the late governor Blackburn of  Kentucky, is a very successful financier in  Dawson. She was in Portland, Ore.,  when the first news of the gold finds, in  Klondike reached there in July, IS97.  With several *chousand dollars she started  On the first boat up the coast to St.  Michael. She gave no heed to mining, but  risked her every dollar in buying town  lots. Her long experience in western  boom towns proved useful. A long story  might be told how she has bought and  sold and rebought and resold lots on  Front street in Dawson. It was enough  to say that through her deals and her options on lots, which went jumping in  value, she has made $00,000.' She sent  down Alaska Commercial Company drafts  to a San Francisco bank last fall to the  value of $40,000. Several lots that she  bought in September. 1S97, for $700 each  have since sold for $15,000 and $10,000.  "There are many sons of English peers  in the town. A younger brother of an  earl does a sort of banking there, and  lends money at thirty and forty and even  fifty per cent a year, bub it is on short-  time paper and real estate security. A  cousin of Cecil Rhodes of South Africa  has a fine mine on Discovery creek. Ex-  Gov. David B. Hill of New York lias two  alleged cousins in Dawson. One tends  bar ond the other cooks in a restaurant.  An alleged nephew bf ex-President Harrison plays a fiddle in the orchestra at the  Pavillion���a big dance hall in Dawson.  Several former clergymen work at any  kind of jobs about the town.  "The population of Dawson has been  about 14,000 since June. Up to the influx  of 45,000 men and a few hundred women  last April, May and June, there were between 5000 and 0000 people in Dawson and  15,000 out on the claims along the Klondike creeks and rivers. Of the 50,000  people who went to Klondike in 1S9S the  Alaskan Commercial Company reckons  that between 10,000 and 15,000 have returned home. The rest who stayed in the  north are largely out on the claims along  the Klondike watercourses. There are  fully 2S,000 men all told between Stewart  River aud Circle City. There are 2000  men living in shanties and tents on Steamboat creek, where hundreds of men  stampeded from Dawson last November  on one of the most fearfully cold days 1  ever experienced.  "The people at Dawson are the most  restless, anxious and abnormally minded  people in the world today. Every person  in the Klondyke regiou, except the Stick  Indian jiatives and the Salvationists, is  there simply and wholly to get gold. I  don't believe there ever was another community like Dawson. The sacrifices some  of the men aud women there are making  to get rich are tragic. Men who have  been in law offices all their lives and have  longed to be rich have thrown aside their  professions, risked all, even their lives,  and gone to the/Klondyke in the hope  that some of the gold would come to them.  Thousauds of young men from shops,  stores and colleges in the Eastern States  are in Dawson City trying to become suddenly.rich in some unusual way they don't  understand themselves.

They had eleven pounds  of gold among them, and they said they  had thirty pounds more buried pa their  claim. The. actual, gold' told an eloquent  story. The news went quifikly throughout 15awson. It is wOndei'ful how hews  Of a lucky strike goes through all mining  towns. Cold as it was, and iti spite^of an  awful wind that swept down and chillbd  even people huddled about roaring wood  fires, fifty men packed up and started for  ]?orctipine creek that very day. The next  day 100 more were ti'ampiiig across that  frightful wintry region toward^ the Porcupine, drawing behind them sltds loaded  with their camp outfits. In a week 300  .(nore men were bound across the pountry  for the Porcupine river. Several of them  were brought back to. Dawson to hare  frozen hands and feet amputated, and  seven or eight died from freezing. There  may be some more poor fellows who lay  down in the snow and died where.their  bodies will be found when the thaw conies  in April. Two weeks later the most of  the statupeders to Porcupine creek were  back to Dawson, glad to be where they  had even a whiff of civilization, and cursing the men who had caused them to go  chasing a phantom fortune on Porcupine  creek. That illustrates how the Dawson- <  ifces are excited periodically by news of  diggings. I have no doubt that there has  beeu several rushes of excited, gold-  hungry miners to new placers since I  came out.".  "But with all these extraordinarily  large prices for necessaries and luxuries  and this wild extravagance, Dawson is a  most melancholy community. There are  more men in proportion to the population  who go to bed hungry in Dawson every  night at this season than any where else  in America, at least. There must be 3000  men up there who have not a dollar in  their pockets. Every iveek there are suicides of miserable, disheartened men, who  have gone to the Klondike hoping against  HEAD  OFFICE, TORONTO  O.  R.

LAY, Manager.  hope that by some means they might  strike something up there which would  lead on to fortune. Night after night the  poor unhappy fellows, cursing the day  they ever left a land of plenty for a winter in the Arctic, hover about the stoves  in the saloons and dance halls. The saloon keepers hate tb have them there, but  it is like sending a man to death to order  him out into the gales that blow there  often at night. The most pitiful things I  have ever seen are the men in Klondike  who have left good homes and loving relatives and have gone away up to Dawson where they have spent their money  and cannot communicate with nor hear  from the. outside world. I have seen them  in the postoffice at Dawson when the little sack of letters had arrived once in a  month by an overland mail carrier. The  expression of melancholy homesickness  and want intheir faces when they find no  letters for them is touching in the extreme."   Men Sized-up Right.  Men are constantly declaring that  women are vain, but they never think of  looking nearer home. We all certainly  possess a streak of vanity, and I certainly  think that when everything has been  said about that, the majority of women  have a right to be vain to a certain extent. We dress so as to make ourselves  as charming as possible, and when we attain that end, when we know that we are  looking our best, who can blame us if we  feel a small thrill of pride because our efforts have been successful. But what  about a vain roan ? No woman, however  vain, can compare to the man who is fully  persuaded that he is perfection imper-  sonified. .You can pander to his vanity to  the utmost "extent; you can pour  oceans of flattery into his ears.  He will absorb it . all and ~ ask  for more. - His appetite for such is insatiable. . Y���ou can # see these men every,  day on the streets and elsewhere. They  stroll slowly past the plate glass windows  in order to enjoy the graces of" their  figures and appearance, and are so wrapped up in themselves that they have, no  time to .notice that they are-a source of  amusement ,to others.

Benefits the Publicans and the Fanners.  Under any conditions London is not a  very enlivening place on Sundays, but  when to tlie death-like appearance of the  great city is added the dull pit-a-pat of  unending raindrops, the sight is depressing to the utmost degree. "  As far as the man in the street can see,  the only solitary good a wet Sunday  brings the metropolis is_that it washes off  a little of the soot which veils every beautiful building and magnificent monument.  One feels that tbe very rain itself is conscious that it is futile to get all the sticky  substance away; the intelligent onlooker  knows it is a hopeless task, and that the  smoke and soot will be all-triumphant  again on Monday morning, rain or no rain.  Probably there are only two classes of  people all over the country who really  hail with delight a wet Sabbath. They  are the publicans and the farmers. But  the latter at certain times wriDg their  hands in horror when rainy Sundays  come too frequently. The takings of  many of the publicans on an inclement  Sunday evening exceed the whole ofthe  returns of the previous six days. Tobacconists, too, do a good stroke of business  on account ofthe same atmospheric conditions.  TheTremont Hotel  P. Burns & Co.
