The Assize. Court.
At the sitting of the assize court yes-
, terday, the jury in the case of Regina vs.
Maslonka brought in a verdict of not
guilty. The prisoner Maslonka Avas indicted upon tAvo counts, that of attempted
murder, and of shooting with intent.
Tlie shooting occurred in an hotel at
Ymir Avhile Maslonka avjis on a spree.
The ciise of Regina vs. Flannigan AA'as
then taken up, in Avhich the prisoner A\-as
charged Avith assaulting Esther Frost.
At the request of the members of the
Nelson, bar .1. R/Costigan of East Kootenay conducted the -prisoner's defence.
The case went before the following
jurors: William Irvine (foreman), Thomas'J. Sims, Christopher Morrison, Stanley Tytler, Melville S. Parry, Thomas
Madden, Edward E. Phair, Arthur E.
Eskrigge, Robert Robertson, L. N. Armit,
William G. Gillett and William Fergus
Anderson. When the case had been presented, the jurors retired for a few moments, after Avhich they returned a verdict'of guilty. The prisoner will receive
sentence tomorrow.
The second case against Flannigan AAras
then taken up,'in. AA'hich the prisoner avjis
charged with the Maslonka assault. The
jurors chosen for the trial of this cji.se
avo re :-• A. H. Kelly (foreman), Angus G.
Shaw, S. M. Brydges, J. It. F. Rowley, J.
H. Vanstone, Percy .Chapman, E. iv.
, Straehan, W. P. Dickson', K. A. Winorals,
Duncan McArthur, F. L. Osier and F. M.
C Croskill. An adjournment AA'as granted in the cjise at 5 o'clock to allow the
prisoner's'counsel to put in medical testimony.
; John Cunningham AA'as then brought
before Mr; justice Martin in ansAver to a
charge of contempt of court in not obeying ti subpoeniitto attend at the last court
of assi/.e as a Avitness in the cjise of Re-
gimi vs. Davis, in which the prisoner avjis
charged Avith the theft of an OA'ercoat
' from Cunningham. W. A. Galliher ap-
• peared for Cunningham and explained
. that Cunningham knew that Davis luul
left the country before trial Jind did not
think tluit there could be any trial
of the cjise, aud considered that
his evidence Avould not be required. Mr.
Galliher Jilso explained that he had acted
for the crown at the previous assi/.e, and
stated that Cunningham's cvjdcnce would
hot have assisted the grand jury in any
particular. His lordship pointed out the
, necessity in tho interests of justice of
enforcing strict obedience to subpojnas,,
but considered that under tho circumstances, and in view of Mr. Callihcr's expatriation, that the ten days' imprisonment under the bench Avarrant issued in
the matter Avould be sufficient punishment
and allowed Cuuninghain* his liborty.-
On the motion of deputy attorney-gen-
oral McLean, to estreat the bail of Walter Turnbuli, avIio failed to appear in an-
ftwer to a charge of thefc from the pur-
son, .7. It. Oobtigan appeared for the
bondsmen against the estreatment. He
stated tluit the prisoner had made restitution, and that he had fled the country,
thinking that he had entered a trap prepared for him by tho prosecution. The
motion Avas enlarged for the purpose of
taking the evidence of constable Barnes
of Fort Steele and of the Avonian from
whom the theft AA'as committed.
Tho grand jury made the folloAving
presentment, and in accepting it Mr.
justice Martin thanked them for their
services and discharged them from further attendance:
TIN: lu vicAV of the fact that nearly every
presentment made by_j3revions grand_
"juTieslias received-] il tie or no attention
at tlie bauds of the government—this
grand jury is vei-y loath to bring in any
recommendations as to the requirements
of the district. But having been advised
by your honor that it is our duty to draw
attention to such matters as Ave deem
beneficial to the public Aveal, Ave earnestly
hope tliat our A'iews as .«et forth in this
presentment Avill meet with some recognition from the proper authorities. We
congratulate your honor upon the very
light criminal docket in this'district,"
affording ample proof of the high standard of our citizens. Our attention
lias been drawn to the following subjects:
First—We cannot too strongly condemn tho present state of the provincial court house, Avhich is totally
inadequate to meet the requirements of this rapidly groAving district.
It is entirely too small for the needs of
this section, and the total absence of
heating arrangements, the apparent neglect as to cleanliness, want of ventilation and lack of any decent accommodation for judges, juries and court officials
have become apparent to every grand
jury aud to every judge Avho has held
court here in the last feAv years. As avc
understand that an appropriation lias
been made providing the necessary
means, Ave cannot understand tlie delay
in remedying these evils.
Second—We inspected the provincial
jail aud found that its administration
■was- a credit to the warden in charge.
The accomodation and cleanliness of the
jail strongly contrasted with the abseiice
of the same in the court house. As it is
a matter of public knowledge that four
prisoners have escaped from the custody
of the jail during the last six months,
we carefully looked into tlie details of
these cases, and Ave came to the conclusion that either the staff supplied the
warden is too small, or that he has.been
given incompetent warders in'.some cases.
We note that the most serious case AA'as
tliat of one prisoner who escaped from
the jail yard, Jind  Avith  very  little expense  a  repetition  of this ease could be
avoided.    With  reference  to this particular  cjise where  the  prisoner  escaped
across  the international  boundary, and
through the promptness ofthe provincial
chief of police avjis .rearrested at  North-
port on an extraditable offense, and held
by the  United  States authorities  until
our goA'eriunent Avas communicated Avith.
We find that it refused to take the necessary action to have this -prissoner re-
turned.    This in  our opinion AA'as most,
regrettable.    Our neighbors Avere Avilling
toassist us in bringing  this  criminal to
justice  and  our  government too  parsimonious  to  sustain  our  reputation  for
keeping law and  order, and   promptness,
in bringing criminals to justice at AA'hat-
ever cost; a reputation AA'hich  has  been
of such inestimable" practical A'alue.
We recommend that arrangements be
made AA'ith the citizens of Nelson to have
the prisoners break stone for the streets,
as a melius of providing employment for
the prisoners, aud a benefit to the public
in general.
AVe note that owing to the liberal support of our citizens the local hospital is
being enlarged to double its previous
capacity,'and-we. most urgently recommend this institution to the government
for a more liberal support in the near
How Public Buildings Are Built.
The question of public buildings  and
their construction Avas under discussion
yesterday on a Baker  street corner, and
the discussion brought out the fact that
political  architects'  are   responsible  for
much that is faulty in our public  buildings.    A gentleman avIio at one time held
a  high   official position  in a   provincial
government gjive the following as  an in-
stiince  to  illustrate the point at issue:
"The government in poAver  at the  time
made an appropriation for a school-house
in a good-sized town.    A political  architect- was  given  the job  of making the
plans.     They Avere inade for a tAvo-story,
structuie and the contract foi- the building was aAvardcd in due time. Everything
Avent AVyll  until-one' day a letter Avas
received   from   the   contractors,  saying
that the stainvay for  the  building luul
"been omitted, and-asking what shonld.be
done, at the same time intimating that a*
good j'ound sum Avould have to be charged
extra for putting in the stairway.    The
official to whom the letter Avas referred
thought the matter OA'er,  and  probably
blanked the political architect in blank
verse,  but  he   Avrote  b.ack:     'Comulete
building according to plans.'    The building    AA'as    completed,    and   a   practical
mechanic Avas then employed to put in a
stairway Avhere he thought best."

Montreal, October 17.—[Delayed in
transmission.]—A meeting of the Payne
Consolidated Mining Company directors
AA'as held in Montreal yesterday. There
Avere present: Lieutenant colonel Fred
Henshaw, president; Clarence J. McGuaig,
lion. L. J. Forget, William Hanson, W. G.
Ross, W. L. Huge of Anaconda, Mont.,
vice-presidents; F. L. Sargeant of An-
_acoiulji7iYiT(l_A~WrMcCuiie~of "Stilt- LakeT
After biking cognizance of the strike,
and also of the fjict that there were
sufficient fuuds to pay three monthly
di\'idends, it was thought to be the better
policy to pass the monthly dividend until
men can be obtained to work the mine.
They believe it better to keep the treas-
ui y in condition. The opinion was expressed that the mine would be Avorking
again Avithin .sixty days, and that OAving
to recent developments tho company
Avould be in a position Avhen Avork avjis
resumed to earn if necessary $100,000 per
week, and only 25 Or 30 men Avould be
needed to earn the regular diVidend. C.J.
McCuaig goes to British Columbia iu a

A Telegraph Manager Will Eetire.
Monthkal, October IS.—The Montreal
Star says: "For .some time past it has
been currently reported that Charles It.
Hosmer intended to retire from the position as head of the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company's Telegraph, and today
the story was pi'actically confirmed.
When seen by a representative of the
.Star, Mr. Hosmer stated that it aviis true,
that for some time he had been gradually
relieving himself of the details of the
telegraph business, and that before the
close of the year lie expects to be entirely
relieved of his official duties and be free
to devote himself to his many outside
enterprises. It is understood that Mr.
Hosmer is to re-present in Montreal a
large foreign banking liouse."

MANILA,  October  IS.—The consuls in
Manila have received from Tarlac, Avhere
it is believed that Aguinaldo remains, a
book containing the correspondence betAveen him and the American  commanders and consuls, in Avhich, as he contends
in his recent appeal  for  recognition, the
Filipinos find the basis for tlieir assertion
that  the American  government   recognized  their   sovereignty   and   promised
them   independence.   .  The book, is  addressed  to  the members  of the United
States  congress, and  contains a long argument  by sen or Buenamino, of the so-
called cabinet of Aguinaldo, and alleged
letters Avritten by Mr. Wildmah, United
States       consul       at       Hong       Kong,
to     Aguiiialdo    iu     June     and     July
of last  year.    It  has made  a sensation
among the Spaniards here.    Replying to
^Aguinaldo's request that the-Americans
Avould   arrange   for   ships  to take' the
Spanish prisoners to Hong Kong, thus relieving the Filipinos of the expense of
maintaining them, Mr. Wildinan wrote:
"Never   mind  feeding   them.'    A  meal
every djiy of rice  and -water will  be  a
good  diet.    They  have  been living  too
high during the last few years.    As the
Spaniards AA'aiit niore  blood shed  in the
Philippines, I trust you  Avill  let them
have, a taste of real war.    Do  not  be  so
tender with them.    Handle them as they
would .treat yon."    Mr. Wildman's letter
dealt largely with the shipment of arms.
The Avhole correspondence, however, contains no promise of independence.    Senor
Buenamino lays stress upon letters from,
admiral Dewey and'general Anderson requesting passes for American officers and
'others to visit the Filipiuos, and  upon a
letter   from   general    Anderson   asking
" you and your people to co-operate Avith
us   in  military  operations   against   the
Has Permission to Work.
A special meeting of the dii-ectors of
the   Rambler-Cariboo  company  will  be
held   at   Rossland   on   November .2nd.
The   purpose   of   this   meeting    is    to
declare    a    dividend    of    one   cent   a
share.    As the capital stock of the company is now 1,250,000 shares, the declara-
tion-of this dividend ."means the distribution of $12,500 profits among  the stockholders of the company.    The  Rumbler-
Ciiriboo is now in shape to declare regular diAridends, and it is  the intention of
the officers to make the coming  distribution of profits the  first of the regular
monthly payments of one cent a share to
the stockholders.    It has betAveen $*3.*5,-
000 and   $40,000  in   the treasury,  200,-
000   shares    of unsold   treasury    stock
remaining    from     the    recent   increase
in   the   capital   stock,  AA'hich  could   be
sold for close to $100,000, but which it
is the intention of the officers of the company to hold until the stock is  worth $1
per share, and the mine itself is in shape
to make big shipments of rich silver ore.
The completion of the loAver tunnel, tapping the ledge at ji  point far  below the
fornier Avorkiugs, has opened up a big
area of stoping grounds.    The ore can be
stoped  out fiom  aboA'e the tunnel  and
hauled to"the surface-at-slight "expense."
There is almost no limit to the amount
Avliieh   can   be   shipped, and the   most
gratifying feature is that the ore in the
loAver AA'orkings is the best ever found in
tho mine, Avhich is saying much, as the
Rambler has long  beeu famous  for the
richness of its silver-lead ore.   The labor
difficulties  in  the Slocan  Avill not cause
the Rambler any trouble.    It has permission  from  the Slocan Silver-Lead Mines
Association, to Avhich it belongs, to continue Avork.

"This is u striking rebuke to the charge
of French-Canadian disloyalty in the present crisis."

London, October 18.— A considerable,
engagement is. anticipated iu the vicinity,

General sir. George Stewart White has
12,000 men and forty-six guns available,
besides a considerable force of volunteers to hold Ladysmith, and no
anxiety is felt On his account,
for the Natal country where the
engagement is expected is fairly open,
and although the Avork of moA'ing them
will be difficult the guns are likely to do
good Avork. The country is not favorable for Boer tactics and it Avill be-.'very

They Died For Canada.

Canada's thanks are due the Lundy's
Lane Historical Society for planning the
Avhich the ashes of the brave men of the
89th and 103rd regiments -will again belaid
to rest in the sacred ground of a country
for Avhose ssike they fell in battle at
Lundy's Lane. .There is a fine dramatic
meaning in the contrast between thefirbl
and second burial of these brave men.
The bodies avc re hurried into graves on
the battlefield, to be disturbed eighty
years later by the hand of modern improvement, and again interred amid the
prayorspof the church and the gratitude
of the country. It is fitting that the anniversary of Qiu'cnslon Heights should
be chosen for the simple ceremonies
Avhich Avill adorn Canada's last tribute to
the heroes of Lundy's Lane. Quecnston
Heights or Lundy's Lane nuiy rank jus
tlie scone of a petty skiiniish in the estimation of military students. Canadians
must apply different standards to the
strife on these hard-fought fields.
Ground consecrated by the valor aud
blood of bi'iiA'o men who fell in battle for
Canada against an unjust invasion must
be precious in tlie sight of Canadians as
long as grass growb and Avater runs.

Rejecting tho Transvaal's Proposals.
London, October 18.—Sir William Vernon Harcourt, Liberal member for West-
mormouthshire, and fornier official leader
of the  Liberal  party,  folloAving seA'eral
minor speeches for and against the government,  said  it was  the duty of the
liouse to support the government iu maintaining the integrity of the dominions of
the queen, but that they had a  right to
speak of the policy of the government in
an altogether different  tone.    He went
on to justify the opposition criticism of
the conduct of the negotiations  prior to
the receipt of the ultimatum, declaring
his belief that there were salient circumstances in the transaction Avhich did not
tend to a peaceable solution.    "Although
1 do not charge  the  government,"  said •
sir William, "with deliberately avoiding
it peaceable solution, in my opinion there
is no justification for saying  that  there
lnis been criminal intent on  the  part  of
the Transvaal.     Step by step, it  will be
found, on Avise advice from  the Orange
Free State and the government of Cape
Colony,     the     TrausA-aal,     until     the .
door    AA'as     shut,     yielded     and     Avas
continuing to yield to our pressure."   He
then proceeded to contrast Mr. Chamberlain's prcAious utterances, Avith  his  present  attitude, and  asserted that there
Avas .absolutely  no  need    to  reject the
Transvaal offer of August 5th.    The language  used   by   Mr.  Chamberlain,  just
after that offer Avas made, and when the
negotiations had reached a most  prominent point, could not be considered fiiA'or-
able to a ppaceful settlement.  Discussing
the cause of the final breach, sir William
said :    "On September (5th the Transvaal
sent a dispatch pressing for a promise of -
a joint commission to consider their offer
on condition that suzerainty be dropped.
Everybody is now convinced  that suzerainty  Avas  dropped  in 18S4 (loud ministerial protests),  at  any  rate  successiA'e
secretaries of state Avere of that opinion."
Mr.     Chamberlain     emphatically    dis
Sir William, resuming, Aveut on  to  remark that suzerainty avjis only formally
announced  to  president Kruger by Mr.
Chamberlain   in   1899.    He   commented   .
upon the extraordinary delay iu sending
the final proposals of Great Britain. "The
British   nation,"  he   exclaimed,  "has - a    -
right to knoAV what the proposals of the
government   Avere.        The    government
have no- right to  involve the nation in , •

Shamrock Ready for Another "Race.
Neav York, October 18.—Half an hour
before sunset this evening, the dialleng-  '
ing .yacht Shamrock lay inside Sandy -
Hook gently tugging at a green painted.'
buoy, whieli the federal authorities furnished for her moorings".    An eighth'of a
mile away, the defender  Columbia   idly
rocked on the  ripple  a. ithin  thejiorso
shoe.     On   board   Shamrock' there " AA'as
activity.    Her crew were completing the * *
adjustment of the shrouds and  stays to
secure the new  topmast'that had'been
sent up at noon to replace the one carried
aAA'.ay   yesterday.-    On   board  Columbia
there avjis no activity.     Karly in the day-
it had been  the  purpose  of .Shamrock's" V
owner to go outside with Shamrock and
-test her new equipment, ^but —
though she came down the harbor from her rcmeasurcment early
this afternoon, the shortening daylight afforded too little time after all her
rigging being snugged. At half past font-
o'clock tho I_rin steamed doAvn from the
upper bay to her moorings with the hook.
.Standing on the bridge .Shamrock's
owner observed the last detJiil of her preparations, and his hope for a spin today
gave way to the conviction of its impossibility.

It never lose* an apportuuity to knife the  present government in the ribs, aa hich,  we suppose is good practical politics. Hit  the enemy AvheneA'er and AvhercA'er you  can.     Tlie     court-house    at   Nelson    is  not   up   to    the   requirements    of   the  business  that is transacted   in  it;   but  the    late   Turner    government    squandered   enough   money    on    roads    and  trails in this.district just before the election    in    1SDS   to   have   built   a  good  court-house at Nelson.    Tho finances of  the 'province   are   Jiot   so   easy  as   to  alloAV the  Semlin   government   to   tear  doAvn    substantial    buildings   in    order  to erect more   expensive ones.     When  the   present   court-house   was"built at  Nelson, 'the1  people    of    the   neighboring    fcoAvns   Aveie    just   as    envious   of  Nelson's luck in   getting   such   an   expensive building  as  the  Economist and  others are iioav OAror  Rossland*s  luck  in  getting an appropriation of t-MOjOOO for A  court-house.       When   Nelson's    present  court-house Avas built, tho  entire  population of southern Kootenay did not exceed  4000  people,  and  the   court-house  appeared to be large enough to meet the  requirements  of  the  disti-ict.    The district has groAvn in population and Avealth',  and the government appears to be aAvare  of that fact, for has it not  made ample  provision for a good   court-house  in   the  largest   town  in  the   district ?   Has it  not   made   provision   for   the   erection  of a land registry ollice at the most central   toAvn   in  the dislrict?     Probably  Avhen   they see their  Avjiy  clear to tear  doAvn   a   substantial   building, that Avas  ample for the lOimiremontH of the country when it"\vns bliilt7��Mrivi5pi7o^)nftlib_.'  Avill be  made for a   uoav court-house at  Nelson.   The  cry  uoav  raised over   tho  court-house in as senseless as  it is unfair.  The officials   Avhole  livc��   arc  rendered  miserable through being forced to pass a,  few hours a  day  in  tho  com t-house at  NeIBon can easily  cud   their  misery���-by  resigning.

Tin: Thihc.vk pi act ices what it  preaches. IL pays good AVagcs and requires good work in return.  ance of the term, he had at least some  ideas on the subject AA'hich if followed  out Avould tend to make this Avorld .a good  deal happier and better than many find  it. He said: "Superstition is not re  ligion. Relief Avithout evidence is not religion. Faith Avithout facts is not  religion. What is religion? To loA'ejustice ; to long for the right; to love mercy ;  to pity the suffering ; to assist the Aveak ;  to forget Avrongs ; to remember benefits ;  to loA'e truth; to be sincere; to utter  honest Avords ; to love liberty ; to AA'iige  relentless Avar against slavery in all its  forms ; to loA'OAvife, and child and friend;  to make ;i happy homo; to loA'e the beautiful in art nnd nature ; to cultivate the  mind; to be familiar Avith the mighty  thoughts that genius has expressed, the  noble deeds of all the world; to cultiA'ate  courage and cheerfulness ; to make others  happy; to fill life Avith the splendor of  generous acts, the Avarmth of lo\'ing  Avoids; to discard error ; to'destroy prejudice-; to receive iioav truths with gladness ; to culti\'ate hope : to see the calm  beyond the storm, the dawn beyond the  night; to do the best that can be done  and then to bo resigned. This is the religion of reason, the ereed of science.  This satisfies the brain of the Avisest and  the heart of the best."  HUDSON'S BAY  . Ajpsg-:s^t?

Even in days when woman is invading  almost every field wliich man litis so long  aj-pi'opiiatod, it comes tis a shock and a  surprise to learn thai there is at least one  woman, young, beautiful, and refined,  whose duty it i.s to execute it criminal at  a moment's notice, to arrest the most  reckless desperado, and to spend much of  her time in conveying lunatics, single-  handed, to asylums. Tlie story of this  girl's life roads moie like .a chapter of  daring romance than a page of sober fact  and experience.  Miss Claire Helena Ferguson, wlio may  rightly claim to be the most daring woman in the world, was brought up in a  home of refinement. Her mother is a  practising physician of repute, and it  was while assisting her mother in the op-  erating-room that Miss Ferguson acquired  the nerve wliich now stands her in such  good stead. Two years ago, when she  Avas barely twenty-one, Miss Ferguson,  who seems to have been boj'n with a  ci aving for j'isk and adventure, applied  for and obtained the post of assistant to  the sheriff at Salt Lake City, Utah.  "When sheriff Lewis handed her her  commission he told her that it might be  her duty at any time to execute a criminal, and that she had better start revolver piactice at once.  It is the custom in Utah to allow a condemned man to choose whether  ho will  die by the hangman's rope or by a bullet;  and if lie elects to be shot lie is let! out to  a  lonely  place  among  the  hills, and a  piece of white paper is pinned over his  heart as a target for  the bullet.    Miss  Ferguson,   nothing   daunted  by  such a  terrible  prospect, immediately began to  practise with her revoh-ei. aud soon became so proficient that she could rely on  hitting a small piece of paper, nine times  out  of ten, at a distance of ton yards.  Happily,  however, she has not yet been  called upon to exercise tliis part of her art.  One  of  her   earliest   adventures  was  such as would have tested the nerve and  courage  of the  bravest man.    She wtis  left for a time in charge of ono of the  most  daring burglars  in Utah,  a hand-  sonic,  unprincipled   scoundrel, who  had  already served five  terms  of imptison  ment,  and  who goes   by   the   name of  "Handsome Gray."    The man was handcuffed, but contrived to pick the lock of  liis handcuffs Avith the help of a piece of  wire.    Miss Ferguson only detected Avhat  lid A\ras doing as tho handcuffs fell on the  floor-and the-burglar Avas in the act_of_  springing on her.  With the rapidity of lightning she  seized her revolver, and covering him  Avith it, said, "If you take another step,  I'll shoot," Tho man quailed before the  pointed revolver and the determined look  of his pretty gaoler; and thus the  trjingely-matched pair stood facing each  other for some moments, until, providen-  his captor, a man of groat strength  and courage, entered bhe room and secured him from behind.-  Miss Ferguson, during her two years of  office,  has convoyed no fewer  than  10(5  lunatics, many of them homicidal, to the  asylum.    As   the  asylum   is   fifty * miles  from Salt Lake City, it is a two hours',  ride, and as Miss Ferguson ahvays accompanies, them alone, the terrible strain on  her nervesmay beimagined.  ,   On more than one occasions lie has been  violently attacked by her wards, many  of  them much bigger and stronger than  herself,  and she lias liad many narrow  escape's of losing her life.    With one dangerous lunatic she had a life and death  struggle for ah hour; and  when finally  the brave girl succeeded in mastering the  lunatic, she had to hold her hands, bleeding and fainting though she avjis, for the  remainder of the journey.  It is some tribute to the remarkable  courage of this young girl tliat she Avas  invited by the most desperate gang of  cattle-thieves and highwaymen in Utah  to A'isit them in their fastuess, known as  the "Robbers' Roost" ; and as a souvenir  they promised her the "finest horse on  the range." Miss Ferguson did not accept this strange, if complimentary, invitation : but there is little doubt that she  Avould have been most hospitably and  gallantly received.  Miss Ferguson has none of the physical  equipment one a. ouid associate Avith a life  of such risk and hardship. She is very  slight and girlish, Avith no suggestion of  either strength or endurance; and her  face is as refined as it is beautiful It is  not surprising to learn that during the  last tAvo years she Iris had no fewer than  fifteen oilers of marriage, her1 lovers  ranging from a Dakota cowboy to a  Chicago laAvycr.  Platinum in Alaska,  A. Flenner, an experienced miner from  California, Avho Avith eight men has been  prospecting along the shores of Disen-  chantmcjit bay, reports finding a.hat he  thinks will prove to be the greatesfrplati-  num field in tho Avorld. Tlie place is  about  forty-five  miles northwest   from  Sitka, aud the platinum is hot  only very  plenty iu the sand but it is on  the rock  as well,  though the  rock is not in place.  Mr."Fiehner felt assured that he'would  find the ledge very  soon and  the''whole  party  was enthusiastic   Avlien   the   big  earthquake and tidal wave of' September  10th broke in upon tlienii destroyed tlieir  camp,  washed away'all tlieir tools and  specimens .and left  them  in  a wrecked"  condition.    Tliey managed to get back to  Sitka after   great   hardships,   and  Avill  return to their work iu  the spring with'  tools  aiid  jnachiuery.     They  lnive  five  tons of provisions and supplies in "cache.  Gold iu the ledge in quantities to make  hydraulic   mining   profitable   has   been  found in the neighborhood of the platinum,  but tlie platiiiuin  is a richer find.  Thus far only traces of this metal have  been' discovered in  Alaska,  though it is  generally believed from indications tliat  large deposits  of  it exist.    Mri Flenner  thinks he lias struck it at last.  ;-.' Glasgow Water Supply.' ������  An interesting statement is made by  Mr. Benjamin Taylor regarding the Ghis-  gqw Avater.'

A   correspondent,    commenting   upon  what   he  calls   the   frequency   of   miscarriages of Justice even in this fair-play-  loving  country  of ours,   suggests   as a  remedy  the. remodelling  of our present  system of arriving at a verdict.    He is of  opinion that if some such system as tliat  in vogue in Geinnany were introduced it  would save many innocent  people from  being  condemned to terms of imprisonment and hardship,    In a'criminal''trial,  iii 'Germany; it appear!, a  vote of six to  six means the acquittal of the prisoner; a  vote of seven to five leaves' the decision  to the court, Avhile-a vote of eight to four  seals  the-prisoner's   doom.    Under  this  custom,    our    correspondent says,   mis-'  carriages of justice A'ery rarely occur.  The Tremont Hotel  IV!

Tribune Association, Limited, Vernon St.  OL^X-TVCS =  The Ajax group, situated on Tam-  arac mountain, and almost immediately  adjoining the famous Tamarac mine,  near Ymir, B. C, consisting of the  "Ajax," "Gold Drop Fraction," and  "Lookout Fraction."  There are several ledges running  through the claims, on one of which a  large amount of development work has  been done on the "Ajax" claim. These  claims are credited with having the  Tamarac lead which,"together with "the"  showings made upon the Ajax, should  make the shares of the company  desirable as an investment. The  directors have decided to offer a block  of 50,000 pooled treasury shares  for sale at one cent until Saturday,  October 21st, 1889, the proceeds to be  used in completing a crosscut tunnel  now being driven to cut the ledge.  There is a good opportunity to make a  ready turn in the purchase of these  shares at the price quoted. For further particulars apply'to  Alex Stewart, Broker  P. O. Box 89, Nelson, B. C.
