Array THE FIRST SHIPMENT OF ORE  From Windermere  District..  Windermere district, in East Kootenay,  is attracting a good deal of attention  from both prospectors and men looking  for prospects. Back of the town are a  number of copper claims on which work  has been done for several years. The ore  is rich but the veins do not appear to be  in place. On the head wa tors ofthe Toby  and Horse Thief creeks, which empty into the Columbia below Windermere, several properties are being developed by  men who mean business. On one of the  claims in tlio Delpbine group, on the  north fork of Toby creek, about twenty  miles from Windermere, a shaft is down  MO feet, and between SO and 100 feet of  drifts have been run from a level about  50 feet down. Besides the outcrop on  the surface has been stripped 11(50 feet.  From these workings twenty tons of ore  were sacked and packed to the Columbia,  river and taken thence to Golden by boat.  The ore was then shipped to the Trail  smelter. This week the returns were  received, and they were so good that the  owners, It. A. Kimpton, George Stark  and Arthur Harrison, believe they have  a mine. The ore is galena carrying a  small percentage o.^ copper and a little  gold. The smelter returns were $102 a  ton. After paying all charges, the ore  netted the owners about $70 a ton. This  is the first shipment of Ore from the  Windermere district.  **  "i/i,  a��j j  WEDNESDAY MORNING, JULY  1*2,  1899.

Washington, July 11.���An unofficial  intimation has readied the state department that the Canadian government intends to send to the Porcupine district in  Alaska a body of mounted police to maintain order. If tliis proves correct the  McKinley administration will meet the  situation by ordering troops to Pyramid  Harbor. The'Porcupine River country is  part of the territory in dispute between  the United States and Great Britain and  would'become neutral territory for the  time being if a modus vivendi was  arranged. ��  Some time ago the government proposed to send troops to Pyramid harbor  as a precautionary measure, as there was  a lawless 'element there and a military  force was considered necessary. The  ���.-British government however thought tlie  presence of troops in the disputed territory might be misunderstood and provoke tho very trouble which both gov-  ernnionts% were tjnxibus  to  ayold.-   The.;  ^^^^M^^M^^^ii^M  '^\Vj-"��'V."^\S'^^ ' y yy  '"y "\ J^QNlW^jJi^ >76ii "the  y ^���*ju)dnde'n -platPi'liP "N:e^vx}iax"ihep ph Peed leus,-  ,:f 7^Y:'$> OfrM'^Q-fctii!,'?'!^  I."��� STli^e Were sixt^iiil^uhuel's.  ���JBhe* betting  ���^^alah^e"-t0s^b5;^ '"-a  "���'���  "AS   n" nDb   "ictno     nu "'OS �� D "    W'ntiST    In-   \ n    ��� dD        3     " D        i a a  ". yy"-; At\��$pxj?u\iilifc&t "%di|y��D itJ^'.^W^l^lS^t6,  waS.'Wpuii"'b'y ��� Mj-s ���*Blakje;,^;��;a^,e:4'���/cliestj\!i'ite  jtor/sg fedfE^h^lcJitd' \%lIr^iitB'eresi^i*cl1's  "MkwWte, witli" Sibkn 'pp., Wife second, and  ���' '^'itflllii^vfia^jr  "by   i^efiy PliArd,  . ���"    =]S'l'evg|i" Jaor^ds1 ran;.

He  also said several neAV issues had come be-  foi'e the public, namely trusts aud imperialism and expansion. He outlined the  democratic platform of 1900 as opposing  imperialism and trusts; imperialism for  the reason that it is not in harmony with  the Declaration of Independence and the  views of a free people.

SEEKING   MORE   INFORMATION  About Electrical Matters.  Neither alderman Thomson or alderman Hillyer was present at the nieeting  of the committee of public works yesterday evening, but after waiting some time  the mayor and alderman Fletcher decided to discuss the question of renovating the electric light plant with W. P.  Dickson who was present. Mr. Dickson  was strongly in favor of properly reorganizing the present system and buying a-new machine of a wireless pattern,  which he recommended. He thought  that money laid out in the plant would  be well spent, and that the suggested  improvements would result in an increased income of at least $500 a month.  The city clerk informed the committee  that after paying back what had been  borrowed from current account tliere  would be $9,175 available from the electric light debentures. ''���'��� 2  Alderman Fletcher thought a good  second hand machine would save money.'  and answer the purpose, but Mr. Dickson  said that the machine in question was a.  new one and that it would probably be  very hard to get hold of a second hand  one.  The question narrowed itself down  practically to a matter of ways and  means, and the upshot of the discussion  was that W. P. Dickson and the city  engineer were instructed to examine the  ground aud make an estimate of the cost  of moving down the little wheel alongside the big oue, the object being to obtain a greater head and get greater  power. They will also test the economy  of the small wheel and report to the committee who will meet for that purpose on  Thursday morning.  A. petition signed by J. J. Malone and  askingfor a sewer td.be laid upon Water  street from Cedar to Willow Avas referred  to the city engineer tb report.

HOUSE   SURGEON   IS   CHOSEN  Hospital Director's Meeting.  At a meeting of the directors of the  Kootenay Lake General Hospital Society  which was held last evening, it was decided to have plans prepared for the proposed addition to the present hospital  and to call for tenders for the erection of  the same. So far the ladies who have  been soliciting subscriptions for the  building fund have received promises  aggregating $1800. so that there is considerable work yet in front of them to  bring the subscriptions within sight of  the probable cost of  the  improvements.  The building which the directors propose to erect will be properly, the main  building of the hospital. It will be  something like 20x50 feet, two stories  high with a basement. It will' about.'  double the present accommodation, provide a women's ward, a private ward.ta  number- of private rooms, an" operating  room, and additional accomodation for  those employed around the hospital. It is  the intention to have the entire hospital  properly lighted and heated.     ''y(yyyJ('y  The directors also decided to offer the i  post of house surgeon to Dr. AV. A.

Boards of trade tire now little more than  political clubs without influence.  The marine village of Tuyuselei, in New  Guinea, would take a lot of beating on  the score of singularity. Here the houses  tire till supported on piles'and stand right  out iu the ocean, sol ne considerable distil nee From the shore. The object of this  strange position is to protect the inhabitants against sudden attacks of the  dreaded head-hunters, who are always on  the lookout for victims. Other villages  in this happy land tire perched up in all  but inaccessible trees, for , the stone  weighty reason.  Another curious place is a town without a name on one ofthe arms of Lake  Huron. This consists of some 500 wooden  huts. During the summer these little  dwellings are hidden away in a clearing  on shore, and the town contains not a  single inhabitant. But on the arrival of  winter, when the lake is frozen'"over with  ji thick coating of ice, the owners oF the  huts arrive and proceed to move their  houses out on to the surface of the lake.  The floor of the huts is taken up -and a  hole cut through the ice. Through these  holes the residents fish, carrying on their  operations until the spring releases the  hike froni its icy bonds, when this extraordinary town is once more broken up,  the shanties go back to their resting  place, and the fishermen scatter over the  country. This place even boasts a curing  factory and a church, not to mention  several saloons���till on the ice.  Athos,- ti town situated on a promontory on the coast of Macedonia, well deserves the title of the most curious town  in the universe. The peninsula- is known  as "The mountain of the monks," from  the fact that a score or so of monasteries  tire dotted about the rough hill sides or  the *-valleys. In these establishments'  '.dwell, a numerous body of ascetics, kind  'and hospitable to wanderers, but full'of  superstition, ancl believing in the doctrine of separation to ft wonderful degree.

Altliough to,, our"  pi:ficti'cal  Jnind fliimsy  ip a degree,- it fe  implicity believed in by the 'inhabitants.  It appears that in one ol" the chief monasteries on the proinotory there is a miraculous icon, which is a picture, or image  sacred to members of the llusso-Greek  church. This particular picture is a representation of the virgin, and the legend  says that one day as the empress Pul-  cheria. wdio had liberally endowed the  church, as will as beautified and restored  it, was cugaged'in her devotions, the virgin spoke, asking what she, a woman was  doing in the' church. The pious lady, no  doubt amazed, did not reply, whereupon  the voice commanded her to leave, saying that the feet of a woman should  never again tread the floor. The empress, probably surprised at the .seeming  ingratitude of the speech, jis well tis awestruck, left the place, where no female  litis since entered. Mow the-prohibition  thus arbitarily established came to comprehend the length and breadth of tbe  proinotory i.s not very clear. As a residence for bashful bachelors, we should  imagine, Athos would be hard to surpass.  Not Losing its Hold.  Those pessimistically inclined persons  who imagine, and declare, tint t religion is  losing its hold upon the rising,geiieration  will not Iind evidence in support of their  view if they consider the growth and enthusiasm of the Christian Endeavor,  Society and other young people's associations'. At what other, period of the  world.s history was it possible to gather  twenty thousand young nien and women  to ti religious convention such trs that recently held at Detroit? Religion may not  be mtiking the advances its friends desire,  but it is certainly not losing ground on  this continent.

It then copies  this sentence from a recent speech of Mr.  Balfour':  For the majority of boys at .our- public  schools Avho do not get from their knowledge of Greek or Latin tiny real living insight into Greek or Latin literature���for  them I say it is really imperative if we  believe, as 1 believe, iu a literary educa-,  tion, that Ave should, through the medium  of some more easily-learnt language,  either at school or after school, give  them that knowlege of the best that has  been thought and said in many lands by  men of genius, which they could not have  if they are to be restricted simply to the  rudiments of Greek or Latin, which they  have been able to acquire at school.  It says "of it "that there are feAV  American public men ofthe first rank  capable of uttering so Avretched a.sentence as that." That is a bungling paragraph, sure enough, but then Mr. Balfour  made ti mistake. He was talking something which he did not feel. He Avas trying to be profound on a theme which he  had but a. smattering of, and the paragraph gi\ros him away. But there are  others. We must not judge all Englishmen by one example. Let.us see, how a  . few words-from Tyndall,Onea like,theme,  sound.: *'* ..-'._    *   =     . .   ' _- \    r    *  The - education Avhieh. does not" supply  "the , Avail t here .-referred-to1,, fails in its  , (1 uty-^to England. In regard to our work-  :.ing "people, iii tho ordinary- sense Of .the  - term working, tlie study of physics would  1 |imagihe, be profitable not only as a  means of- intellectual culture, but also as  a moral inlluence to avqo them from pursuits Avhieh now degrade them. A man's  reformation oftcner depends upou the in-  = direct* than upon the.direct action of the  will. Tlie will must be "exerted iu the  choice of employment which shall break  the force of temptation by crecting^a barrier, against it. The drunkard,-for example, is in a perilous condition if lie content himself merely with saying, or  swearing,, that he will avoid strong drink.  His thoughts, if not attracted by another  foi'tv-;. Avill revert to tho public-house, and  io ri' -line him permanently from this you  . must ,-ive him an equivalent. When utterly vWheartened, I have encouraged the  boy b; the anecdote of Newton, where ho  attributes the difference between him and  other men. mainly to his oavu patience ;  or of Mirabettu, avIiqh he ordered his ser-  ^vant,JvJio4nid^stat;e*d=someth;hig=to=be=  impossible, never again to use thai'block-!  head of a word. Thus cheered, the boy  has returned to his task With a smile,  which, perhaps 'had- Something of a doubt  ih it, but at Inch, nevertheless, evinced a  resolution to try again. I have seeil his  eye brighten, and, at length, with a  pleasure of Avhieh the ecstasy of Archimedes Avas but a simple expansion, heard  him exclaim : "I have its si*1!'" The consciousness of Belf-pOAver, thus awakened,  A-Vag of ihime'nse value, aiid, aiihnated by  it, the progress of tlie class was astonishing., ��  Then;, describing the advantage of a  mathematical education the wonderful  man proceeds as follows:  The swing, the .see-saw, the tension of  the giant-Stride ropes, tlie fall and rebound of the football, the advantage of  a small boy over a large oiie Avhen turning short, all became subjects of investigation. A lady stands before a looking-  glass of her oavu height; it was. required  to know how much of the glass Avas really  useful to her. We learned with pleasure,  the economic fact that she might dispense Avith the loAver half and see her  Avhole figure notwithstanding. From the  hum of the bee we were able to determine the number of times the insect  flaps its wings in a second. Following, up our researches upon the  pendulum, Ave learned Iioav colonel  Sabine had made it the means  of determining the figure of the earth ;  and Ave were- also startled by the inference which the pendulum enabled us to  draAv, that if the diurnal velocity of the  earth Avere seventeen times its present  amount the centrifugal force at the equator Avould be precisely equal to the force  of gravitation, so that an inhabitant of  those regions Avould then haA-e the same  tendency to fall upward as downward.  All these things we're sources of wonder  and delight to us ; and when   vvc remem-  THE BANK OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA  NELSON  Is qow prepared te issue Drafts and Letters  of Credit on Skaguay, U.

And finally he says :  When a man of enlarged heart and  mind comes among boys, Avhen he allows  his spirit''to stream through them and  observes the operation of his own"character evidenced in the elevation of theirs,  it would be idle to talk of the position of  such a man being honorable, ft is a  blessed position. The man is a blessing  to himself and to all around him. Such  men, I believe, are to be found in England, and it behooves those who busy  themselves Avith the mechanics of education at the present day, to seek them out.  For no matter what--means of culture  may be chosen, whether physical or philological, success must ever mainly depend upon the amount of life, love and  earnestness which the teacher himself  brings witli him to his vocation.  Reducing Consumption.  According to reports from good authorities the high prices of copper have  reduced the consumption in Europe���especially in France and Germany���though  they haA'e not had that effect iu this  country. The reduction has beeii due,  uot to the substitution of. other metals to  any extent, but rather to the postponement of new electrical and other construction in Avliich copper takes an important part. How long this Avill last is  not certain; in some cases it  may  result  H. D. Ashcroft  BLACKSMITHING  AND EXPERT"  HORSESHOEING        -  in the abandonment of such enterprises  altogether, but in many others the post-  ponment depends upon the market, and  some of the projects Avill lie brought out  with each fall in quotations. The production of the metal shows only a small  increase; in the United States it has been  almost stationary, though the European  producers have been more active.  Currency Embarrassment.  A currency embarrassment has resulted  iu China from   the  rise  in   the   price  of  copper.'   The fractional currency of that  country consists  of copper  "cash,"  and  these are really the standard for the great  bulk   of daily  transactions  among   the  people.    Wages are so  small  and prices  so Ioav that there is  seldom   need   of the  silver dollar   or  tad   in   retail   business.  When the rise in copper became knoAvn  in the East, however,  these  "cash"   rose  to  a   premium,  and   were  consequently  sold   and   disappeared  from   circulation,  greatly   to   the  embarrassment  of   the  small merchants.    In  some of the large  commercial centers an effort Avas made to  supply the deficiency, but it did  not go  A'ery far after the authorities found out  that the copper needed to coin or stamp  the equivalent of a silver tael  in  "cash"  cost from 1-]- to li taels.     Chinese  provincial authorities  are  not likely  to   do  business at a loss for the  benefit of  the  public, and  so  the embarrassment  continues.    A reduction in the weight or size  of the "cash" .would not be tolerated by  so conservative'a people as  the  Chinese.  The  issue   of   subsidiary -silver  coin  is  talked of; but it would take a long time  to bring this about, aud ex-en then  it is  doubtful AA'hether the people would-take  the uoav coins.    The "problem is  not an  easy one to  solve  under the conditions  existing in China.  FULL LINE OF  HOTEL   ARRIVALS.  .   hu.aik.
