 a'  ALASKAN   BOUNDARY   DISPUTE  Latest American Proposal.  AVashington, July  24.���Inasmuch as  the   Canadian   oflicials   have   laid   stress  upon the refusal of the United  States to  accept a fair arbitration of the  pending  questions   it  may   be   proper  to explain  .lie reason for tliis refusal.    In the   first  place the United States government contended   the   absolute  soundness   of   its  claims in the matter of boundary.    This  would seem to be a good reason   for submitting the matter fco arbitration, on the  ground that a good cati.se has nothing to  fear from fair arbitrators,-but   tliis government holds  tliat arbitrators   in their  treatment  are  all   subject  to   the   fatal  weakness of .compromising.    In   our case  any   compromise   would   amount to   the  loss   of  our   whole contention,   for  once  Canada gained any material advantage in  theboundary contention the United States  would lose the only weapon which it now  possesses for the protection   of American  miners going into the Klondike from  extortion and   perhaps  expulsion.    It  was  for  this  reason  that secretary Hay rejected thejiCanadian proposal to arbitrate,  as it was presumed that in any case Pyramid   harbor  should  be   bestowed  upon  Canada.    Then too, it was  realized  that  an agreement to arbitrate may  be  extremely unpopular in the west and   that  the oflicials will be  made to adjust th��e  matter without  resort to  arbitration   if  possible.    Tliis has caused a   revival  of  the project to allow Canada  free  privileges at some specified ports on the Lynn  canal, Dyea, Skagway, or  Pyramid   harbor, while allowing soverignty over them  to remain in the United States  and  this  i.s one of the propositions "now  engaging  attention.  It is realized that this plan Avould meet  witli strong opposition from that clement  wliich favors no concessions whatever to  Canada, but under sneh an arrangement  American miners niight reasonably expect to benefit a good deal from the construction on the proposed railway running  from a free Canadian port on the Lynn  canal straight through to Dawson, in the  heart of the Klondike.  une  TUESDAY MORNING, JULY  25,  1890.

These  unfortunates liad been on the trail nearly  two years. They related tales of hardship and demonstrated the non-feasibility of both the land and water routes  overland.

A. L. Sharpe, a  freight  conductor  on  the Nelson & Fort Sheppard and Spokane  Falls <fc Northern railroads,  died  at the  Kootenay   Lake  general   hospital  early  yesterday morning.   He was not taken to  the hospital for treatment as he was beyond all medical help when Dr. Hall Avas  called to attend him.    The removal to the  hospital was decided upon merely to give  the sufferer a decent place in  which to  die.    Sharpe complained  of being ill on  Saturday and lay down in a caboose at  tho   Nelson   &   Fort  Sheppard   railway  depot.     He was allowed to'remain in the  caboose   until   Sunday afternoon  when  some of his fellow-workmen endeavored  to Avaken him.    This they Avere unable to  do as Sharpe's sufferings had caused him  to become unconscious.    Through the inhumanity  of   someone   the ^unconscious  man was alloAved to remain in the caboose  until early Monday morning when lie was  removed, to the hospital, and . he  died in  about two hours after being admitted. It  is said that Sharpe in common Avith other  employees of the railway company paid  hospital dues regularly Avhieh Avas 'supposed to have  entitled  him  to hospital  treatment and care in the event of illness.  -Such being the case there appears to be  room   for   an   investigation   to fix  the  responsibility for the neglect ..which permitted the. unfortunate virtually to die  in a raihvay caboose Avhile Avithin sight  of a hospital.       =  NELSON.

Ni.w Di.NVt-H, July 21.���A change for  the better has set in for tlie lower lake  country, furnishing more life and activity  than has been noticed in the camp for  years. The several creeks are being inspected by experts, seeking openings for  the .investment of capital. Each day  witnesses the arrival of some now representative, and as a result every property,  of any merit is being examined with a  view to a possible deal.  The general activity is centering upon  Springer and Lemon creeks, and fully a  dozen claims luwe been bonded during  the month. Ten-mile had ' no "less than  seven full fledged experts inspecting claims  on Saturday, but the; results are so far  negative. The representative of English  money inspected the Mabou and Ohio,  but the price was beyond him. Two  Scotch authorities paid a visit to the Iron  Horse., and. a Vancouver man looked at  the United Empire. Three others Avere  oup to the camp in the neighborhood of  the big glacier. All professed to be anxious to buy, and are but the vanguard of  aii increasing band. So far the claims in  tlie vicinity of the Enterprise are meeting witli the most attention, but the general resources of_t'he creek Avill soon bej  .widely known.-  ; On the Dalhoiisie group, Ten-mile, two  men are Avorking and some rich ore has  lately been 'taken out.  ���: R.

are beginning to realize that the .|ucstion
should haA'e been given more consideration.
A. (;i.xti,i..ma.\ who is thoroughly well
posted on the situation in the Slocan
says that there is altogether too much
pontics mixed up with the mining situation there : that the mine managers to
a man supported the late Turner government, and are now doing tlieir utmost to
bring about the downfall ol' the Semlin
government. The Turner government
was the mere tool of the l-iinsnuiirs, and
the mine managers in the Slocan want a
government that will do their bidding.
The Diiiisinuirs paid tin? election expenses
of the navie-Tiirner crowd for years, and
in.:, return escaped taxation. The mine
managers in the Slocan, being mostly
aliens, arc Avilling to do likewise to
escape taxation.
The Enmity of Aliens.
Toronto Telc._f[vim.
A. vivid imagination,  a copious flow of
la.nguage  and a book of familiar   quotations are blended in a picture of the exceeding sinfulness of Hon. Joseph Martin,
which   appears  in   the  Iiossland Miner,
above  the signature   of P. A.   O'Farrell.
British  Columbia must  gather from the
remarks  of  Mr.    O'Farrell   that   Josepli
Martin,  Eight-hour   hvw  and  the  Anti-
Alien law are iniquities which must be removed.    A paradise worthy of the angelic
presence of Mr. O'Farrell and his felloAV-
alieus—that  is   Avhat   British   Columbia
Avill be AA'hen the Eight-hour laAV, the Anti-Alien  law and Joseph Martin   are all
SAvept away.    A Canadian who operated
an advice mill for the benefit of Americans  in their country Avould be told to
reserve his advice for the nation Avhieh
had a claim  on his allegiance.    It is e\'i-
dently the  duty of British Columbia to
immediately get rid of  every public man
Avho is  not stamped Avith the  "O.  K."
mark of P. A. O'Farrell, and to'promptly
repeal oA'er'y law Avliich does not meet
with his distinguished approbation.    The
enmity   of   aliens   like  1?.  A.  O'Farrell
and  of journals   of alien ownership  is a
tribute  to the good  service Joseph Martin has  rendered in standing up for the
people against the exploiters of the public resources and the Yankee mine-owners, whose unchecked  greed is now striY-.

"In tlie first place," explained this now  seciirely-iaunch-d wolnan in society, "I  hiut to pay ��700 for my board, and lodging, itVtrodtlctions, etc,; iii fact, I wnsto  pay the money quietly, biit was to come  out in-public- "with all the eclat and advantages of a dauglittu' ofthe WelMcnoWu  lady of title,  'in my ignorance, I thought everything was being done in proper style, ft  was only gradually I began to realize  that my-chaperone Was one of the crowd,  the by no -.means  small crowd, of women  whom men flee from ns'the spongers.'  "Take Henley, for instance. If you are  not going with a party or by invitation,  you can easily buy tickets for Clubland  lawn, but tlie'spongers' don't, they leave  these things till they get down there and  pounce upon some young fellow just up  from tho university, and with a gush and  simper that they ought to have dropped  twenty years before, they will point-  blank ask the man if he is not going to  take them to lunch. Some of them murmur something about not being able to  find the houseboat to which they were  invited, and, of course, the young fellow  has to say 'yes.' They always go for  these boys. An older man would diplomatise himself out of it with an excuse  that he has a large party now or something of the sort. Imagine my disgust  when my chaperone at Ascot reintroduced herself to a man who,,], know, did  not remember having met her before, and  made him take us both to the Guards'  tent, and of course he had to pay all our  expenses, though I had previously paid  the lady a special lump sum for this outing. She must have made heaps of money  out of me, for avo seemed to sponge on  everybody, and I didn't get much of the  attention when she did capture a man as  an escort. Of course she introduced him  to niCjbut that Avas about all. She would  talk���how she would talk���till the poor  fellow Avas almost bored to death. And  people Avho Avanted to invite me to their  parties hated having to ask her, in spite  of all her family connections.  "And then, you knoAV, Ave Avere"asked  out of town for a good long visit, and as  I didn't like the people 1 went someAvhere  else, and although her 'town liouse was  shut up foP a whole month out" of the  four I had arranged to spend Avith her I  had to pay her -��100 for this one month  that I didn't even see her once.

"The ;jeunesso doree of Paris arc certainly  the most enervatingly effeminate  lot  that it has ever been my  ill  fortune  to see," says Anne Morton Lane, the London correspondent of the Chicago Times-  Herald.    "The I'Yench   young man about  town is a terrible individual.    His whole  life   is evidently   composed   of a simple  round that can be followed by the observant eye  of any casual   visitor.    During  the   four days that   I was  in Paris 1   attended   all    the   fashionable   places   frequented by the smart young men and the  many beauteous ladies avIio appear to be  the most conspicuous  feature of Parisian  life.    During that short time at all these  places I Avas sure to see exactly the same  number   of   masculine   pleasure-seekers,  the same faces avcnt the round each morning,  each afternoon,  and  each  evening.  At Armenonville  they breakfast; they  drive in the Bois in  the afternoon ; they  trifle  with   iced   absinthe   again   at Armenonville in the  afternoon ; they dine  at  the   Ambassadeurs  or at  the  Ritx;  they go on to the .Tardin de Paris or the  Casino, and they wind  up at the Cafe de  Paris or Marine's.    After that I do not  folloAA' them, but evidently it is the same  thing  day after  day.    The dress  of the  French man about town is very peculiar.  He   usually   Avears    small,   high-heeled,  patent-leather shoes, Avith Avhite gaiters,  white duck, or very pale-gray trousers, a  black  or  dark-gray  frock  or   cut-away  coat, a  very high collar  Avith a long tie,  tucked  and frilled  shirt, and a straAv or  tall  hat.    An eyeglass  without  rim   or  string is invariably  screwed in  his eye,  and white gloves and elaborate stick complete his make-up.    He usually drives an  automobile,    and    sometimes    a     high  phaeton  with a  pair of  dashing  steeds. ���  He is   always   accompanied by a   lady  FULL LINE OF  Front Doors  Inside Doors  ,;^SGreen-#Dpc?rs _ _. ;; _d.*;_ ���, /,  "]"l"yWw&^$y_'V" "'y  :��"-J:  "Sinsill^^Msb''"' ������������-���*���.���'  ������!-;��"u-ab��^cfetr"' _     .   -v  FlBoiing -      - -   ���������  locat and' coast.

THE LOCAL NEWS OF THE TOWN  Back from Dawson.  AVillimn Perdue is again in Nelson  after au absence of about a year. JIe  left Dawson on June 17th and came out  by way of St. Michael's. When at that  place lie attempted to reach Cape Nome,  where there are said to be fabulously  rich diggings, but he only got part of the  way and was glad of it, for he afterwards  learned that the (Jape Nome diggings are  a fraud, lie reports Dawson one of the  liveliest places he was ever in. Plenty of  money, but many men out of work, lie  also says that there aro more liars on the  Yukon than in all tlie remainder of the  world. Mr. Perdue looks as if the country was a healthy one.
