Captain Clifford has made increases to his working force Avithin the  past two Aveeks and the indications are.  that still further additions Avill he made  as the property is more fully opened up  for stoping. About 150 tons per day  are now being shipped to the company's  smelter. ���'Just ' what the average rate  oC shipping Avill be will, of course, be  determined by the manner in which the  new stopes open up.

It is  be'ing drifted from the, bottom of the  shaft/but it will be two or even three  months before the management expect  to strike it.        \;  The Ymir shareholders are in receipt  of a circular from their directors informing thorn that they have decided  to proceed at once Avith the erection of  the large cyanide plant for the treatment of the Ymir tailings. The cost of  this plant, Avhich is now going up on  the company's property, is estimated at  $50,000,. and its operation is estimated '  to effect an annual saving upon the  company's operations of $85,000, or a  sum- ec;ual to' 8 1-2 per cent! onvthe  company's capital. The circular further sets out that it. has always been  _the policy .of the directors' to pay. for  "all improvements out of the profits of  the mine.; The shareholders will doubt-.  less be'. pleased to learn,that the cyanid--  ing mill .will"be installed without any:  increase .of capital or without entrenching upon the funds required foi* the payment of the quarterly dividends. The  circular. . further   adds   that ..the   news  - from the mine continues to. be of the  most satisfactory '-character, -.and the  high returns aire being maintained.- On,  the ^exchange the stock has -made big  gailis since the new ore body was discovered and the indications are. that it  - will-go evenViitglieiv-' -*'*;-r :'-���-' ��� vV' ' '-: '   x: ~  The successful.flotation of the.

NEW LONDON, Conn., July 24.���In a  fine southwest breeze over the 39-mile  course from New Haven breakwater to  Sarah's ledge at the mouth of the NeAV  London harbor the Constitution once  again showed what a superb racing  craft she is in light weather and smooth  water. She beat the Columbia today,  boat for boat, 8 minutes 23 -seconds  fairly aiid squarely. The Constitution  finished a good mile in .the lead, having  gone the 39 miles in 4 hours 32 minutes  and 27 seconds, while it took the Columbia to go over the same distance  4:40:50. This Avas remarkably fast when  the comparative lightness of the breeze  is taken into consideration and also the  tide being against them over the greater  part of the course. Yachtmen are iioav  convinced that the Constitution is faster  than the Columbia on every point of  sailing in light weather, but in a rough  and tumble sea many believe that the  Columbia Avill prove the speedier.

Sloan had been riding with  such continuous success that his mounts  were always favorites. On the occasion  in question he rode a horse Avhich had  no chance of winning. The unsophisticated crowd, however, backed the American's mount as usual and when he was  beaten their indignation boiled over and  a raging mob of males and females savagely .attacked the jockey, who Avas .rescued Avith difficulty by a military contingent and a powerful detachment of  so! ice.

WASHINGTON, July 24.���Secretary  Long has received_the following letter  from Admiral W. S. Schley asking for a  court of inauiry:      ��� .  Great Neck, Long Island, N. Y., July  22.-���Within the past few days a series  of press comments have been sent to me  from various. parts of the country of a  book entitled "The History of the Navy." written by one E. Stanton Macleay.  From the review it appears that this  edition is a third volume of the said  history, extended to include the late  war with Spain, which the two first volumes did not contain and Avere in use  as text/books at the naval academy.  Second���From excerpts quoted in some  revieAVS, in which the page and paragraph are given, there is such perversion  of facts, misconstruction of intention,  such contemptible abuse as subjects Mr.  Macleay to action in civil law. While I  admit the right of fair criticism of every  public officer, I must protest against the  low flings and abusive language of this  violent, partisan opponent, Avho has infused into the pages of his book so  much of the malice of unfairness as to  make it unworthy the name of history  or of use-in any reputable institution of  the country. Third���I have refrained  heretofore from all comment upon the  inuendoes of enemies uttered or murmured in secret, and therefore Avith  .safety to themselves. I think the time  has now. come to take .such action as  may bring this entire "matter under  discussion under the clearer and calmer  review of my brothers in arms, and to*  this end I ask such action at the hands  of the department as it may deem best  to accomplish this purpose. Fourth���  But I Avould express the request, in this  connection,- - that whatever the" .act-on  may be that it occur in Washington,  where most of my papers and data' are  stored;    Very respcetfully, ���  W.

I am in receipt of yours  of the 22d inst. with reference to the  criticism upon* you in connection with  the Spanish-American war, and heartily appiwe your action under the circumstances in asking at the hands of  this department "such action as may  bring this entire matter of discussion  under the clearer and calmer review of  my brothers in arms." The department  will at once proceed in accordance with  your request. Very respectfully yours,  JOHN D. LONG,  - To Rear Admiral W. S. Schley, U.  S. N. -.-���-.'  r "WASHINGTON, July 24��� Secretary  Long, in accordance with a request from  Admiral Schley, today advised that officer that he Avould order a court of iri-  o.itiry to examine into., the entire matter. Later the secretary announced that  owing to the extremely, hot Aveather, the  court would not meet until September  =and=that=he--Avould=turn=:*overfihis=-recep-=  tion room to the court. The secretary  said: "It is the hot season uoav and. I  do not believe it Would be very comfortable for officers to sit in their heavy  full dress uniforms during August. I  issued an order some time ago dispensing with the Avearing of full dress uniforms during a court martial, but this  case will so., important that every  form of official dignity will be observed  and a guard willbeat the.loor. I propose to give" the court 'the use of the  large reception room adjdning my office, which is a convenient and comnio-  lious rlace."  "Will the sessions of the court be  c:*en?"c  "Unquestionably," was the emphatic  reply. I propose to make that fact very  plain. The country-has t.he right to  know all that transpires in the Avay of  testimony offered. Personally, I would  be very glad to have a court composed  of a large number of officers, but the  naval regulations restrict me to the selection of three. I hope to name the  personnel of the court tomorrow' and  this will give the judge advocate and recorder ample time to prepare a list of  witnesses who are to be summoned.  This list will be quite lengthy and it  will take some time to assemble, the officers here. I do not believe that the  session of the court will be prolonged,  because, after all, a great deal of the  talk over the Santiago campaign is like  the geni's vapor, Avhich can be condensed into a small bottle."  "Will Admiral Schley be allowed to  name witnesses?"  "Admiral Schley," was the reply, "Avill  be offered every opportunity for the appearance of all the Avitnesses he may desire. He is also entitled tinder the naval  regulations to be. represented by coun-  r.e]." ���       "  While secretary Long was not asked  whether the court of inquiry would be  asked to form and submit an opinion  upon the facts disclosed by investigation, it is considered reasonable that  this course will be p.ursued. Unless the  order convening the court expressly requires this opinion to be expressed, its  report Avill be confined to stating the  facts found.    . A Family of Murderers Located.  TOPEKA, Kansas, July 24.���Four persons, said to be members of the noto  rious Bender family, accused of committing a score of murders at their home  near Galena, Kansas, over i5 years ago,  have been located near Fort Collins,  Colorado, and governor Stanley lias issued requisition papers on the governor  of Colorado for their return to this  state. The first steps toward bringing  the suspects to Kansas Avere taken up on  the representations of Frank Ayers. of  Fort Collins, Avho asserts that one of  the quartet, Kate Bender, was once his  wife. Governor Stanley issued the  requisition upon affidavits of four men  avIio went to Colorado to identify the  suspects. The Benders committed a series of the most atrocious crimes ever  recorded. They lived on a smal farm  near Galena, and for years, as it developed after their flight, they had "lured  travelers and buried their bodies in the  yard around their home or under the  house. All four members of the family  Avere accused of. aiding in the murders..  The family consisted of man,, Avife,  daughter and son.

White    Grouse    Development    Waits  .- .Upon the issue of the Case of  "-.*     -    - FishW-vs--.Harris,--  Mrs: Jennie E. Harris, one of the de-  lendants in the celebrated mining case  of Fisher a-s. Mrs. Harris and Philip  Corcoran, was examined for -discovery  yesterday. This may. be regarded as  the opening move in; the '.legal'- battle  which has been commenced.-foi" possession for some very .yahi-ible mining  property in the White Grouse Mountain  district. George Henry. Fisher, the  plaintiff in the action/is suing the defendant, Mrs. Harris, for a; declaration  that he is the owner of a half interest  ���in the Maple Leaf, Roseene, and Phoenician mineral- claims in the White  Grouse, said claims being a portion of a  group of properties which Mrs. Harris  has bonded to the defendant Corcoran  of San Francisco for $150,000. Corcoran  =has=heen"^added_as7a*'party~to_tFei=iTuitr  merely forv the purpose of having him  declared a trustee for Fisher insofar as  Fisher's interest may be invoked in  the monies to be paid under.the bond  which he holds upon the.entire group.  The dispute between the tAvo. parties  is really Avitli respect to one claim'only,  as Mrs. Harris admits the claim of  Fisher to a half interest in the two  claims is entirely governed by an irrevocable power of attorney from Fisher  to herself, which was given in July,  1897. This document also sets forth  the Fisher interest in the properties  in question, as well as the amount Fisher should receive in the event of a sale  being effected by Mrs. Harris: With  respect to tho Fisher claim to a half  interest in the Phoenician.the defendant denies that Fisher had any interest  Avh:itever.  The plaintiff, Fisher, will be examined for discovery tomorrow. AV. A.  Macdonald is appearing for the plaintiff and P. E. Wilson for the defendant,  Mrs. Harris.  Weather Bureau Report.  WASHINGTON, July 24:���The officials  of the weather bureau hold out no hopes  for immediate relief from the drouth and  intense heat prevailing throughout tho  middle Avest. Indeed, the temperatures  reported at' 7 o'clock this morning from  that section are generally higher than  they were at the same hour yesterday.  At that hour today St. Louis reports a  temperature of 88 degrees, a rise of S  degrees; Kansas City 84, a rise of 4;  Chicago 82, a rise of 8* Indianapolis 80,  an increase of 4; Dubuque, Iowa, 82, an  increase of 10; St. Paul, Minnesota, 78,  an increase of 2. . According to weather  bureau reports there Avere light showers  in nortliAvestern Dakota last night, but  Avith this exception the skies over the  stricken region Avere clear.  A thunder storm in the northern part  of the states in the central Avcst today  gave some relief in that locality from  tlie intense heat. In the corn belt did  intense heat still continues and no prospect of rain. The maximum temperature line of 100 degrees today again encircled the upper Mississippi valley,  lower Missouri valley and the middle  and loAver Ohio valley. St. Louis reports a temperature of 108 and St. Paul  104 degrees, both record breakers.  PITTSBURG, July 24.���Two moves, it  is reported, Avere made by the aggressive officials of the American Sheet Steel  Company .'tOAvards breaking up the  strike. One Avas the shipping of some  non-union men that have been employed in the Van'dergrift mills of the company to Wellsville to assist in the starting of "the plant there. It Avas stated  that the men Avere to be shipped to  Wellsville during the early, evening and  Avould  reach   there  after   dark:    As   a  G  consequence of. this report there is a  suppressed excitement prevailing in  Wellsville Avhich at any moment may  break out into '��� a serious affair. Both-  strikers and officials of-the company  are on the alert and ready for any  emergency. The impression is strong  tonight that the general officers of the  United States Steel Corporation have he-  come determined on the subject of early  breaking the strike and to ultimately  force the operation of all the,idle plants.  The second move that is understood to  have been initiated today is the starting  of the long idle Hyde Parlc-plant of the  American Sheet Steel Company. ^Thls  plant was taken into the combine with  objectionable contracts made by the former owners and has remained idle since  the American Sheet Steel Company tool-  hold of the property. -The long idleness  of this mill has caused most of the men  formerly employed there, to leave Hyde  Park for other places;and the company  believes there Avill be less difficulty in  starting this plant than Avherethe Amalgamated Associatiorivhas control.'  At the Amalgamated headquarters the  tAvo leading 'officials of 'the,.association  Avere absent ���during tlie'greater part of  the day. It Avas stated vthat,'president  Shaffer Avas aAvay on personal business.  The absence of secretary.John Williams  was also accounted fprju-:the same manner. The" conference held; on Tuesday  night, which kept president, Shaffer and  secretary Williams, out until early this  'morning,-remains a's-iSyst^rious as .before. Whatever the object of-the "meeting, it is believed-to have;continued today and much of importance is expected  to-be developed.from the^conference, 'fhe  question of the manufacturers securing  injunctions against the association Avas  discussed generally ./during the day.  Those best acq.uaihted with the feelings  of the manufacturers say there is in  their opinion little cause for believing  that'such -harsh measures Avill be. resorted to at this time.  SUFFOLK, N. Y., July 24.���It Avas  announced this afternoon at the ofiice  of superintendent' Dodge of the Delaware, LackaAvanna & Western raihvay  that the strike of the'.machinists employed by the company had been declared off and that the strikers Avere applying for reinstatement.  Crooked Mail Clerk,.  BAKER-CITY, Oregon., July 24.���At 11  o'clock yesterday morning United States  "postOflice=insp"ectors=Pei*kiiis=and=Butler=-  arrested in the postollice Henry J. Kin-  nison, a trusted employe, on whose person were found marked letters containing money, stamps and checks. Kimi-  son belongs to an old pioneer family  that came here in 1862 and is well-to-lo.  Young Kinnison has money in the bank  and had money on his person, Avhi-h  was returned to him. He was in the  postoffice under the last Cleveland .vl-  ministratioh and only left the office last-  July. He re-entered the service May 15  at the request of postmaster Potter at  the time of tho death of the late chief  clerk, Carl Jones. The inspectors claim  thta shortages were going on prior to  last July, Avhen Kinnison was a former  employe of the postoffice and that on his  rc-employment this time a watch was  set. The department did not re-employ,  the postmaster doing it on his own-'re-  sponsibility in an emergency case. Kinnison is under bonds of $1000 and claims  he can prove his innocence. His friends  believe that he can prove his statements and that there will be found another explanation of the unfortunate  matter.  A Conscientious Bandit.  MODOC, Cal., July 24.���The stage  from Cazadero to this place Avas held up  this afternoon at Park gulch, five miles  south of here. The highwayman Avas  evidently a stranger on the Coast, as  this line has carried no express box for  several years. He commanded the  driver to throw out the box and Avhen  lie was assured there was no box he  made an investigation. After carefully  looking over the wagon ho asked tho  three passengers if ��hey Avere working-  men. They informed him that they  Avere and he replied: 'You may go on;  I never roll Avorkingmen." The robber  was armed with a single-barreled shotgun and masked Avith a bandana handkerchief. He was nervous during the  hold'.'.*.*.  Jim Corbett and His Gall.  PARIS, July 24.���James J. Corbett,  ex-champion pugilist of the world, said  to the correspondent of the Associated  Press recently: "I hope to be as great  an actor as Henry Irving or Coquelin  the elder.    I am ambitious and there's  no future for me in the prize ring, because neither Fitz nor Jeffries Avill av-*r  consent to meet me.   They know their  victories Avere chance ones.    I am the  only man Avho ever lost the championship of the world without a black eye  or. a bloody nose.   Now I mean to study  very hard and conquer in the highest  paths of tragedy and comedy. My habits are good and I am always in good  condition for intellectual work.    Sarah  Bernhardt is the most conscientious student of dramatic art in the world; this,  combined with her genius, is why phe  is the greatest actress.    It makes me  Aveary  to  hear Americans  say  Maude  Adams is the-equal of Bernhardt. Maude  is my townswoman; and will be a good  actress Avhen old enough'and when true  lias studied hard enougn.    Coquelin is  also a severe student.   All great artists  are   hard    students.    Sometimes    they  change the. monotony of their lives by  big sprees, but this is exceptional.'Amtr-  icans are not good dramatic artists;; as  a  rule success  requires  study  as  Avell  as temperament, and Americans usually  lack the former.    I should like' to play  'Hamlet' some day when  I; shall  have  studied  it closely.    My stage presence  is better than that of any impersonator  of Hamlet Avhom I can recall.

LEAVENWORTH, Kan., July 24.���  Michael Kelly in a fit of insanity today;  shot four men, of whom one has died  and the other two are probably fatally,  injured. The victims are: John Garrett, a prominent business man; police  sergeant Dodge, detective Mike McDonald and Dr. Charles McGee. McDonald  alone is expected to recover. Kelly,  harboring a fancied wrong, entered Garrett's ofllce unannounced this afternoon  and without warning leveled a pistol  at Garrett, who sat at his desk. Five  shots resounded through the building  in quick succession, each bullet taking  effect in Garrett's body. Garrett feU:  from his chnir. Dodge and McDonald  hurried to the scene. Kelly had reloaded his revolver and when the officers entered the ofllce he turned upon  them. Sergeant Dodge was shot through  the throat and detective McDonald received a bullet in the leg. A moment  later Dr. McGee, summoned to attend  Garrett, stepped into the office. Kelly  raised his revolver and as tho physician  turned to summon help Kelly fired. One  bullet struck McGee in the back near the  spine. The whole affair consumed five  minutes. Other officers finally ai rived,  overpowered Kelly and placed him in.  jail. Several years ago Kelly made an  assault on Garrett's father and today  he evidently mistook Jolrn R. Garrett  for the elder Garrett in attempting to  repeat the assault. Garrett died late  this afternoon at the hospital.  Agreement Beached.

The:-original  townsite   was   platted   by   the   government and a number of lots were sold  ^"at a public sale held in 1892.   The bid-  Z, 'jding Avas  spirited  and  prices  ruled  a  "A",'trifle high.    Purchasers.-\!ere required  vV.-lo pay one-third in cash, and  the re-  _-    mainder Avas to  be paid  in two equal  i:>," short-time   payments.     Many   of   these  i*ir:paymcnts   have   never   been   made,   al-  %' -though   the purchaser's  have  improved  ��,l/and are occupying the property.

The   government,   on   the   other  " Land, contend the purchasers made their  'own   bargains;   that   they; have   been  ^leniently treated, and that - it. would be  _"   unfair to those who have complied with  - "the terms of the sale and paid in full  to  concede   what  the   delinquents   de-'  mand.   The lots on which full payment  Las not been made will be resold, the  ~ upset price being fixed at $100, the purchaser   paying   for   any   improvements  that.may, be on the lots at a price fixed  by a valuator.   The result of the sale,  Avhich takes place today, will  be that  all lot'owners who have made improvements will be able to get title on payment of $100 and the crown g-v-iut fee,  a3'''no one will be mean enough to bid  against them.

If  the same company or person operates  more .than one mine in the same mining division, the return's may be given  en bloc, but the names of all the mines  must be specified,    (c) The quantity of  ore shipped or treated during the previous    month   and    the  assay   values  thereof.

A    railway    commission    can    expose  wrongs, but no railway commission can  supply  any remedy at all  comparable  in   value   to   the. simple, expedient   of  public ownership of every railway which  public money built.   A railway commission has been the Globe's means of chloroforming the public during the development of conditions -which will enable  monopolies:to laugh at a railway commission.

The principle of public ownership  applied  to  these lines  would  not  have been a complete cure, but it Avould  have been a step in the right direction  and would have done more to right the  wrongs   of  commerce,  agriculture  and  industry than all the Globe's empty heroics in favor of a railway commission.  ���Toronto Telegram.

Cox,  President,  HERBERT  HENRY  ASQUITH  How He Made Political Fortune.  Mr. Ascvuith has drawn ahead of his  colleagues    on    the    front    opposition  benches some of whom have just given  him the second chance of .his life.   His  earliest      oiviosition       reached      him  through   the   medium   of   the   "Kignty  ^' Club,"   one  of  those   militant  associations  for  the  propogr.tion  of  political  opinions and tlie launching into l.-uolic  life   of   blue-chinncd  young men   who  ' prefer not to hide their light under a  bushel.   For the run of ambitious youth,  the  "Eighty  Club,"  including its  Bar-  ] mecido banquets at London restaurants,  ��� and the occasions when it is received  at the houses of the great is unite the  most depressing, disappointing venture  'conceivable.    Yet   it  has   had   its   tri-  lumphs.   Mr. Haldane, K. C, was nMily  one triumph.   Mr. Asquith is wholly i\n-  ��� other. It was, indeed, as president of an  ��� "Eighty Club", dinner that Mr. Asquith  first   attracted    the   attention    of   Mr.  f Gladstone.  The  Grand  Old  Man,  escaped  for a  few brief hours from the unrdcn of jj**e-  i miGrship, gazed pensively at the pineapple   in   front "of   him.   prepared,   no  1 doubt, to doze decorously through the  (platitudes   cf   the   young  politician   on  Jii." left hr.nd.  The platitudes came Inter in the evening, when Mr. Gladstone actually went'  to  sleep.    But as  for  Mr.  Asquith, he  -proved   himself * above   the    blameless,  'dead leaden level of political presidents.  b'His opening sentence served  to kindle  tl'Jhslumbering five in those old brown  JC-eR.    The prime minister listened bolt  [.uptight. From that day forward Mr.  As-iijith's political fortune was made.  His critics complain of him that he  Jacks imagination, sympathy; the minimum of romance required to be anything beyond a capable home secrotary���which office, by tlie way, "he held  from 1S92 to 1S95. Why, the man's  career is a romance in itself.  Go back to the later sixties and you  will ..find hidden away somewhere in  Highgate a young Yorkshireman, a  Congregationalist, not having a penny  to bless' himself with in the wide world.  His- father, who belonged to Morley.  near Wakefield, is dead. The young  Asquith wins a scholarship at the Gity  of London School; from that hour forward keeps -and educates himself by  Ms pwn sheer ability leaving the London foundation as very much the ablest  boy of his year, and gaining a scholarship at Baliol College Oxford, where  even exhibitions are not to be had for  the askin*-*-.  After brains, luck is more desirable  than wealth. This young scholar soon  attracted the attention of Benjamin  Jowett, that famous tutor, and, later on,  famous Master of Baliol. Those whom  Jowett loved live long���and go far;  though, Jowett. has his peculiarities it  was not enough, for instance, to be a  scholar of his college to attract attention,   A had to have some individ-  ^jality^some^character^besides..

Several of his  party considered he had received more  than he deserved.  He succeeded as an administrator, but  showed himself h?rd and unbending,  gaining many enemies who may have  to bo reckoned with. The fatal coal  strike riot at Featherstone in August,  1S03, when the mob was fired on by  military and two men killed, is perhaps  forgotten by laboring men. Is it forgotten by their leaders? Ghosts of executed murderers may not rise to stand  between an ex-home secretary and his  legitimate ambitions, yet very few respites came from Mr. Asquith, a fact  which indicates _the uncompromising  temper of his mind in little things.  This modest estimate of his prospects  would not be imnartial were it to ignore  unpalatable truths. Mr. Asquith is  generally esteemed for his brains and  decisive character. But he is not a  popular personality in the house of  con*"*o:*s. cr he used not to ��� be, to  within 'r. very recent date. His eloquence is of the mind, not of the heart.  He is called cynical. He lacks genial  ways. "What can you expect from a  cabinet," Dizzy- asked once, "that is  not even in society?" Mr. Asquith at  the start was not even in society. Society has taken him up since; a little  too much, some of his friends may  think, who recall that almost royal  wedding at St. George's in the Whit-  sun of 1S94. London flocked to it without distinction of party or class.  Miss Margot Tennant, who then became tho second Mrs. Asquith, enjoyed  .���'Teat reputation for brilliance; her  place in London society was, and no  doubt remains, an enviable one, as the  intellectual canal and associate of those  who have helped to govern (he-nation.  The .Trent and ultimate public, <vithout  actual taste of her wit, were interested  and the. official position of the bridegroom helped.  Since that brilliant summer morning Mr. Asquith has been, so to speak,  "hung up" in a little siding. The express train to fame and supreme power  ���and he boarded it so early���has had  tho signals dead against it. ' Parties  suffer for their inefficient personnel;  and efficient men suffer for their parties. Mr. Asquith has chosen to come  back to the drudger** of the law courts.  He has brought with him a more benignant countenance, perceptibly aged,  and longer hair. Of afternoons Mrs."  Asquith may be seen driving him back  from chambers,, in an elaborate phaeton harnessed to two fiery steeds. Mr.  Asculth sits on her right hand. He  strikes the onlooker as calm, but prepared for omer-rencies.  And that may stand for his present  attitude in the political world.  SAVIHC3   BANK   DEPARTMENT.

Special Bargains  hoes  Asquith -prpb-ibly needed no protection. His Oxford career could only be  brilliant. He became president of tlie  Union, rather more of a. distinction in  those days than now. His first in  ���'greats" Svent without saying. -Among  the. university prizes���glorious, but of  no peculiar value���which he won, was  the Craven Scholarship. His son Raymond ;:ained the same distinction a few back.  ��� Mr, Asquith took his degree in 1S71,  becoming about the same time Fellow  of his college. It is interesting to note  that one of his chief competitors at Baliol was tho late B. P. C, Costolion.  the equity lawyer, whose undoubted  abilities never got him higher than the  county council.  Now comes the most romantic part  of Mr, Asquith's story. Between IST'l  and 1876, when he got himself called to  the bar, he actually earned his livelihood as nn assistant master at his old  school! Let him obtain the premier-  ship, as he may do after his great  siieech to the South Essex Liberals  and he will be almost the first premier  Who at the age of 24 was not either still  at the university or doing the grand  tour.  Fortunately humble beginnings have  no power to keep a man back in law.  Blue chins are no more plentiful in the  Temple than blue blood. Moreover,  Asquiths do not pay their entrance fees  merely to adorn briefless chambers and  back benches. In this particular instance it needed only 14 years to gather  a practice both in town and on the  Northeastern circuit sufficient to justify  silk. But though Mr. Asquith made his  living "at the law, he still looks like a  lawyer and, contrary to al! precedent,  is "back at the law after his interval as  home secretary, and'he has always been  a politician before anything.  He entered parliament as member for  East Fife in the midsummer of 1886:  His most imnortant brief was political,  when he acted as junior to sir Charles  Russell in the Parnell commission. The  Eighty Club monopolized much of the  time wliich a less capable man would  have had to devote to the intricacies of  Order XIV and Byles and Bills.  In August, 1892, when the Salisbury  cabinet came back from the country  with a minority, Mr.- Asquith was deputed by his leader to move the "no  Notwithstanding that there are  ^vcFlfSiTlsr^ and  slices now being offered in this city,  [am prepared to meet the prices  listed for same, and as my stock is  fresh���just opened up���from the  manufacturers, I would solicit an  inspection bt-fore purchasing.

He says that at  (Lardo and vicinity the residents are turning the place into fashionable watering  resorts such as there are at Manhattan  Beach, only that in the Lardo the residents appear to have overlooked the bathing costumes.  * * ���  It has come to the attention of the provincial government officials that several  of the men who are entitled to the exemptions and free homesteads by reason  of their service as volunteers in South  Africa have sold their privi!eges~to other  parties, which has resulted in an attempt  =to=filo=a=blanket=record---upon-a-large-tract-  of land as'.representative of a pool of  volunteers' grants.

The average ,valire of the ore raised for May is  given as $11.54 per ton. It should be $9.9S.  The average value for the first five months  of this year is stated at $12.57, as a matter  of fact it is only $11.22. The average value  for February, March, April and May is  only $10. It would be interesting to know  why the .superintendent persists ln giving  laencurate information of this kind to tlie  shareholders and ��� the public. We would  also like to know whether in view of tho  /above amended ligures, the socretary considers himself justified tn stating that the  average value of tlie ore is $12.03. The  value of this ore, as of any other, is what  It will bring. Let the smelter figures bo  published, and we are confident they will  prove our statements to be correct.  PERSONAL.
