Threatened With, the Rail.
Victoria, July 3.—Tiie SkagAvay Atlin
budget of June 28 received today says :
A report reached Skagway yesterday to
tlie effect that Atlin's iicav judge uar-
roAvly escaped a ride on a rail out of that
toAvn a feAV nights ago. Judge Irving
Avas addressing a large croAvd ol' miners
at an open air meeting on one of the
streets, the crowd being made up of all
nationalities with Canadians largely predominating. The story goes that the
judge iu formed the croAvd that he had
come among them for the purpose of
.straightening out all entanglements and
controversy regarding the ownership of
claims, which announcement the crowd
cheered lustily. Further along in liis remarks justice Irving announced that in
cases where the ownership of a claim avus
being contested, such claimant, no matter
whether there be tAvo or tAventy, will be
recpiircd to pay into the court the sum
of $25 before his case Avill be considered.
Then it Avas that bedlam is said to have
broken loose in fierce form. Some one
yelled "ride him out on a rail" and only
tlie interference of cool headed men pre-
A-ented the carrying out of the suggestion.
Getting After the Attorney-General.
Victoria, July 3.—The benchers of the
laAV society today discussed the charge of
champerty made against attorney-general Martin by the defendant in the Can-
essa \\s. Nicholl litigation. The allegation is that Martin agreed with Canessa
to take charge of liis suit on condition of
receiving a share in the land involved
should he be successful, This acceptance
of a contingent fee is permissible in Manitoba and many of the states but i.s
against law here. The legislature discussed the matter fully some time ago
and rejected the proposition to make it
■'lawful.' The benchers today decided to
iiiA'Cstigato the charge provided Nicholl
files an affidaA'it in -support of his statements.

Opposition to the Cable Project.
London, July 3.—The secretary of
state for the colonies, Mr. Chamberlain,
and the chancellor of the exchequer, sir
Michael Hicks-Beach, recei\red a deputation for the Eastern Telegraph Company this afternoon. The marquis of
Tweedale and others expressed objection
to state competition with private enterprise, referring to the proposed Pacific
cable, and sir Michael - Hicks-Beach
promised to furnish a written reply. In
the meantime, lie reminded the deputation, the Pacific cable project Avas not
new and was one the government had a
perfect rigl.it to undertake. Mr. Chamberlain said that AA'hile customers justly
complained of tiie existing high rates, it
was mainly for the sake of an all-British
cable connecting all portions of the
empire that the government entertained
the present project.
The marquis of Tweeddale declared
that the proposed cable Avould speedily
lead to the ruin of tho cable companies
the delegation represented, and advanced
the alternath'e plan bf,providing for the
formation of a British imperial telegraph
company to take 'over the securities of
the present companies, tlie stock of the
neAV company being guaranteed by tiie
government at 2i per cent interest, the
present large reserve fund of the companies being used to lay the Pacific and
other cables* and the surplus revenue
from the reduction of interest to be de-
A'oted to reducing rates aud relieving the

The Kootenay Valleys road is iioav
graded from Kuskonook to the Boundary
line and is practically ready for laying
the steel, but the deadlock with the
Cio'.v's Nest road still continues. The
C. P. It. officials refuse to allow the contractors of the Kootenay Valleys road
to come on to the C. P. R. right-of-way,
so it is impossible for the former road to
make a connection. If the C. P. R. continue to refuse to allow their, rivals to
run over their line or to build a parallel
track on their. right-of-Avay, the Kootenay Valleys road Avill be compelled to
construct eight miles of very expensive
track to join the tAvo ends of the road.

sending cIoavu from here part of his

operations under the contract system, the
main object being to maintain a regular
and steady shipment. Operations generally on the creek depend greatly on the
Avorking of the Enterprise.

The athletic Sports that Rossland and  Nelson combined are-supreme atai-eba.se-  : ball, lacrosse, football, hose-cart races  (dry and wet), foot races and four-oar-  boat races. Rut one condition need be  stipulated, that is that each and every  athlete taking part luis been a bona fide  resident of tlieir respective towns for six  months.  Jf premier Semlin continues to carry  on the business of the province as he has  since he assumed office, the Victoria Colonist aud other opposition organs will  surely poison themselves with their own  venom.  The Mining Review of Sandon goes out  of its Avay to comment editorially on  mere idle gossip.

It Avill be like the C. P. R. to threaten  Lo take Canadian trade away from St.  John to Roston if Hon. A. G.

It Avill pay  president Shaughnessy to go slow, and to  realize in the lirst place that his name  has been associated Avith the bulldozing  brow-beating methods which haA'e made  the C. P. ft. gratuitously unpopular in  the districts where it reigned supreme.  If there Avas enough manhood in sir Wilfrid Laurier to throw the C. P.

The government of sir Wilfrid  Laurier has truckled aAvay a great part  of its capital of public confidence in playing., into the hands of the C. P.

The GlasgOAV (Kentucky) Times relates  this incident of the recent visit to that  town of William 3.

Finally,  after fidgeting around and easting anxious glances hi the direction of the sleeping better half of the Bryan household,  she seized the maternal arm, shook it  soundly, and exclaimed in an audible  Avhispor: 'Wake up, ma!

The Eastern Soudan has been rescued  from the darkness and terrorism of a  fanatical regime. The blessings and opportunities of civilization are within its  grasp, and tlie aim of its new rulers is to  secure an enduring welfare. In tho next  quarter of a century wc may expect the  Soudan to attain a degree of development ���commensurate., with its resources  and the-character of its inhabitants.  One of the great cities of Africa, laid  in ruins by the Khalifa Abdullah in 18SG,  is being rebuilt as fast as hundreds of  artisans can advance the work.. Before  tlie Mahdist revolt all the commercial exchanges of Europe and Egypt with the  regions ofthe Upper Nile took place in  this city. It was the center from which  military expeditions issued and the starting point of commercial and scientific  parties bound for Central Africa. It is  doubtful if the Mahdi -would have destroyed .Khartoum, for its site, on the  Blue Nile, is a far better situation for a  large city than that of Oindurman, a few  miles to the west, on the White Nile.  Mohammed Aii had chosen wisely Avheii  he said Khartoum Avas the most favor-  able position for the capital of his vast  possessions in the Soudau, and ten years  after he built his barracks and arsenal  Khartoum Avas the first city iu the Nile  basin south of Cairo.

The old duke of York, Avhose effigy in  Roman robes looks clown from the top of  the column that bears his name upon'the  Mall in  St. James's  park, avus once commander-in-chief,  and   being   of   nature  hospitable,   frequently   entertained  the  officers   under   his  comand.    The   duke  could   empty his   two  or  three bottles  Avith the greatest ease on  festive occasions, and the military of the period were  no  laggards in this respect,  either.    On  one occasion, the empty bottles had accumulated inconveniently, and tlie duke  called to a servant: �� "Take aAvay these  marines!"    Now a distinguished officer of  tlie marines Avas  present, and it must be  owned  that to be   likened, as   to one's  corps, to an empty bottle is by no means  pleasant.    "May  I ask. your royal highness for an explanation of that phrase?"  said the undaunted representative ofthe  "sailors -and   soldiers,   too."    Now,* the  duke, it   Avas Avell knoAvn, Avas the last  man  in the world to take refuge behind  his-dignity as-royal highness, oreAreu his  exalted  rank in .the serA'ice.    "I wear a  blue  coat, and you. know where to find  me," he had .written   to colonel  Lennox,  Avhen there.AAras a quarrel between them,  and he had "gone out" with the colonel  as if he had been only  plain major Dobbin.    But, on this occasion a readiness of  wit which was not usual with him, saved  Satan." A bicycle attached to a, ribbon  is the "wheels of Chance." And so, Avith  Mudie's catalogue, oue could go on indefinitely. Tliere are two prizes���one  for the guest who guesses most and one  for the guest Avhose badge has been most  difficult to interpret. Much tea and some  time are consumed, and men and Avomen  show themselves to be children of a  larger growth.   Texas Had a Storm.  Calvert, Texas, July 2.--The most  disastrous storm for years in this district occurred last night. The streams  and river have overflowed banks and  much property was destroyed by the  floods.

The Aveather during the celebration  could not have been finer, and it i.s now  said that it wis all because of the prayers  of two of our leading citizens. On  Wednesday evening the manager of tlie  celebration was on nettles. Bain was  coining down in torrents and hail was  piled up in ridges alongside the shady  side of the fences. Tlio manager once  before had taken great interest in getting  up a children's iloat,and all his work had  been spoiled by rain. JIe was deploring  his luck to David McBeath. JIe was  asked how many children would be disappointed, and replied that forty of the  prettiest little girls in the province and  their mothers would never forgive him  if things went wrong. Dave said, "Leave  that to me and everything will be all  right. 1 will go and get ���'Skinner" Hodgson, one of the best drivers in Nelson  and dress him out in a suit of Gilker's  purest Avhite, shoes and all, so that he  will be presentable when guiding the  four-horse outfit that is to lead the procession; then I will.go out anil hunt tip a  friend of mine that is said to be the  biggest* sinner in Nelson, and if J. find  him we together will offer up'a prayer  for good weather. Our prayers will be  answered, for neither of us has offered  up one iu the-last forty years." The  prayers must have been hoard.  NELSON.

Quite ji commotion was created Sunday  evening by the story that a man had  been drowned from a sail boat tit a point  opposite to the C. I'. li. .shipyard. The  first word of the accident was received  from Dr. Hall, who said tliat in watching  the lake with a pair of glasses lie saw a  man go overboard from a sail boat in a  squall. The supposed accident was also  witnessed by some one at the Hume hotel  and word being passed to (Jeorge Hale's  boat house several would-be rescuers put  out for the scene of the supposed accident.  They fought their way down as far as  Grolunau creek, in the face of a sniall-  si/.ed gale but-found no trace of the  alleged victims. Ic afterwards turned  out that the scare was occasioned by the  carrying away of the sail of a boat of a  vegetable Chinaman who ^afterwards  made Nelson in safety.  ���Joseph Rodda, Thomas White, John  Merri field and W. H. Tregear, who were  in a boat on ^Thursday afternoon when  AVilliam Beard was drowned, wish it understood that they were 500 yards away  from the boat in which Beard was when  hc eapsi/.ed. They had to turn their  boat and row back, aud were within  three feet of Beard when he stink. The  statement in the Miner that they made  no effort to save ids life is untrue.
