The enemy lost three cruisers,  three torpedo destroyers and three torpedo boats, Avhile they captured an endless number of merchantmen. The result is taken to be a practical confirmation of the justness of the criticism to  which the admiralty has recently been  subjected.     #   Bicycle Records Broken.

The bulletin concerning the  condition of the dowager empress issued at 0:30 this morning says: The  weakness of empress Frederick is hourly  increasing and the strength of the heart  is still slight. The relatives of the dying empress have been continually arriving here throughout the day and a  detachment of 150 men of the Fifteenth  infantry have come from Homberg to  do sentry and patrol duty around the  castle.

Visitors to the castle began inscribing  their names in a book placed for, the  purpose in the hall. It is said that the  immediate cause of death Avas dropsy  accompanying the cancer. The remarkable vitality of the dowager empress astonishes . her physicians. She retained  consciousness to the end. The --castle,  grounds are surrounded by soldiers and  patrolled by hussars and mounted police.  HOMBERG, August 5.���-The doctors'  statement that the dowager empress  was dead was given, out officially at  Homberg castle shortly after, noon.  Copies Avere posted in half the shop win-,  dows of the tOAvn. The blinds Avere-  drawn in the wiridoAvs of many residences and all flags were at half-mast.;.  A little later the principal street of  Homberg Avas filled with shoppers: buying black. Then came word that the  news was false. There seems little  doubt that the message came from .Freiderichshoff, although7 no one seems to  knoAV. Count marshal:Haupt,'���who gave  out the inaccurate announcement, has J  been summoned to Cronberg. The false  news Avas telegraphed wildly and many  German cities displayed signs of mournr  ing. When the official contradiction Avas  sent it Avas scarcely believed. Soon  after nightfall emperor AVilliam, accompanied by the empress and the croAvn  prince, drove back to Homberg. Whether  the-body'will lie in state has not yet  been determined. The' details for its  removal to be interred by the side of  the remains of emperor Frederick will  be discussed in Homberg tomorrow.  The dowager empress kneAV her days  were few. She had said farewell to  most of her servants, asking their wishes  when she would-be gone. It is understood that she has arranged for the  future of nearly every one of them. She  had expressed a desire that not much  should be knoAvn by the public concern-^  ng her disease, lest some should be saddened by the knoAvledge of her, sufferings. There Avas much reluctance In  summoning king Edward, as it Avas not  desired that he should have a long Avait.  COWES, August 5.-���King Edward received the official news of the death of  the doAvager empress Frederick on board  the royal yacht. The yacht's flag was  immediately half-masted.

The dispatch was sent to the  president at-Cantoni ,  BATTLE   LASTED 17 DAYS  FIERCE FIGHT AT PALO  NEGRO,  COLOMBIA.  Colombian government has uoav in the  field about 20,000 men and the insurgents  outnumber them and are equally well  armed. There will be no cause for  the United States of'North America to  interfere because of the revolution in  Colombia. The insurgents Avill not disturb the operation of the railroad north  and digging of the canal at the isthmus."  Insurgents Well Organized and Operating From Both Sides of the  Little Republic.  NEW YORK, August 5.���A. Diaz  Guerra, agent in this city of the Colombian revolutionists, today received information from trusted agents Avho had  reached Venezuela that a bloody battle  Avas fought at Palo Negro in the latter  part of May. The conflict lasted for  17 days. The battle Avas drawn at the  end of that period, the insurgents retiring when their ammunition Avas exhausted, the government troops being  too badly cut up to pursue the revolutionists.  By the Red liner Philadelphia, which  arrived here today from Venezuela, agent  Guerra received a bunch of information  in the form of reports, cables and letters  from the scene of hostilities. These  stated that general Benjamin Herrera,  i~who--iS-attacking_from^the._*Pacific^side,,  is at present operating in the department of Cuocoa; general Gardilla, who  is advancing from the Atlantic, is in the  department of San Tandar and in the  possession of Ocean City; generals' Castillo and Clodmire have effected a juncture of their forces and are at El Valle  in the department of Magdalena, and  general Mario has fought an important  battle at Jirardot in the department of  Chundinamaran, which is in the interior of the country, about 100 miles from  Bogota, the capital of Colombia.  Important and successful engagements  have been fought by general Herrera  at Tuinco and Barbadoes and other insurgent victories are reported from the  southern portion of the department of  Caucau. A great revolutionary , army  is said to be operating on the Pacific side  of Colombia. Information which came  to agent Guerra states that senor Valencia, minister of Avar, is on his way to  Cucuta to take charge of the government  forces On the frontier and that at Bogota the merchants, not Avishing to handle any more paper money, have closed  their stores and that business throughout the country is at a standstill. Senor  Guerra says that he has not for some  time received any information concerning the Avhereabouts of general Uribe,'  who has been appointed by general  Vargas Santos in supreme command of  the insurgents. Continuing he said:'  "General Uribe is a personal friend of  general Castro, the president of Venezuela. They have known each other  for years. Castro lived for a time in  Colombia, and his A*Hfe is a Colombian.  The friendship and recent meeting between Castro and general Uribe at Caracas has no significance in a revolutionary sense. The Colombian government  officials, however, openly charge that  president Castro has been aiding the  insurgents, but such is not the case. I  do not think he sympathized Avith the  government, because a year ago he ordered the seizure at La Guayra of two  of our warships which had on board  1000 Mannlichers rifles. 300 carbines and  three guns, a Maxim, Hotchkiss and a  dynamite piece. The boats and military stores are still held and if Castro  was on our side they would have been  surrendered before this. At the battle  fought at Jirardot by general Marin all  the government artillery was captured  and   the  regular   troops  routed.    The i  Aguinaldo's Successor Proclaims.  MANILA, August 5.���Miguel Malvar,  Avho has been recognized as the successor of Aguinaldo by the Filipino junta  at Hong Kong, has issued a proclamation dated July 10, copies of Avhich arrived here this morning, giving assurances to the natives of the continuation  "of an active Campaign* and expressing  hope for its successful issue. The proclamation, of which 50,000 ' copies have  been printed, purports to emanate-from  Batangas. It is a characteristic insurgent document, charging the Americans  with all sorts of atrocities. It recounts  the losses of guns and ammunition and  the death of four distinguished American officers July 10, all of which, it  says, the insurgents concealed. The  proclamation threatens general Gates  with death for treachery and Avarns all  Filipinos who surrender that they will  never be *.*.ble to live outside the American lines. Malvar claims he has sufficient arms and supplies to continue the  fighting indefinitely. The .American officials believe the proclamation Avas  really Avritten by Agoncillo (the former  representative of Aguinado) at Hong  Kong and that he probably has never  seen Malvar. Strong efforts are being  made by the police to prevent, the distribution of tho proclamation.  NO CHANCE IN SITUATION  executive committee of the Building  Trades Council and Painters' Union.

Fire Catching in the Debris Adds to  the Horror���-Twenty Lives Said  to Have Been Lost  PHIIJADELPHIA. Aits-ust 5.���A terrific" explosion in **. block of six buildings on Locust street, about 10 o'clock  tonight, completely wrecked five of the  structures and caused the death of from  10 to 20 or more persons. Over two  scores of others Avere more or less seriously injured. Some of those taken to  the hospitals will die. It is estimated  that at least 35 persons were in the five  buildings when the explosion occurred  and the actual number of dead will  probably not be known for 2-1 hours.  Later���The ex'iflosion occurred about  9:30 o'clock/What exploded and how  it happened is not known, but it is believed to have been a barrel'of gasoline,  in one of the three grocery stores.'The  front walls of the buildings with the  exception of one building, Avere blown  outward, while the floors and roofs Avere  blown upward and fell straight to the  ground. Almost every building for about  two blocks about the scene of the explosion had AVindoAvs shattered and Avero  otherAvise .damaged.  Every building on  the opposite side  of the street was more or less Avrecked  but none 'of them fell.    A terrible cry  went up from the ruins the moment the*  explosion   occurred.     Vv'omen,   children;  and men could be seen scrambling from  the debris, while the agonizing cries of ,  others   were   heard    in   the   wreckage.  From all the surrounding buildings injured people came running and fell in  the street unconscious.    To add to the  horror, lire broke out in the debris the  moment it settled to the ground and ire  less   than   fivo  minutes   the  great   pile  Avas burning fiercely irom end to end.  A general alarm was turned in for the  fire apapratus and ambulances,  and fit  tho meantime the Avork of rescue -was  voluntarily begun by those in the neighborhood that were not injured.    AVhen*.  thp firemen reached tho scene the flames  had gained great headway and were igniting the  buildings  across  the street.  The fire, however, was soon under control, and with the exception of a smalL  blaze here and there was extinguished  in a few minutes.   The work of digging  away the ruins was then begun in earnest.    Near'the edcrc of the debri** several  colored  men   were taken  out and1,  "sent to fhe hospitals.    AVhile the firemen  and  policemen   were digging  iuto>  the debris and hauling away heavy timbers  in several sections of tho wreckage, cries were heard coming from the  cellar of one of the stores.    Fifty men  with rope and tackle were immediately  put to  work at that point and   pulled  away   the   roofing  and   flooring  whicli  had fallen into a  massed  hesr.i.    From  the botom of the pile, doubled up, -.vera  taken a-man and a woman.    The man  Avas able to speak, but the woman was  apparently   dead;    While  the  work   of  rescue,  was   going  on   in   the  exploded  block,   hospital   attendants   and   others  :fkf  '5 *�����  ������'0  *t  ���5.-  -s  \1  Sandbagged and Bobbed.  CHARLOTTE, N. C, August 5.���Last  Friday afternoon a young man was  found lying hy the roadside two miles  from Charlotte in an unconscious condition. He was brought to the city  hospital, where he died an hour later.  The coroner's inquest has developed a  case of murder and robbery. The dead  body was identified as that of Newton  Lanier of Fort Mill, S. C, a volunteer  in the Spanish war who went to Cuba  in a company from this city. Lanier  was given knockout drops at a (luostion-  able house hero and was afterwards  sandbagged and robbed of his watch and  $S0 in cash. It Is alleged that he was  lured in the house by throe men, ono of  whom gave his name as Charles Lyle of  Knoxville, Tenn. The police aro looking  for them.  made a seai*cirof"airtlurflamage(rhoii3es  on the opposite side and almost a score  of persons were taken to various hospitals from these places.  The Ferguson and Pennsylvania hospitals were soon crowded with the injured. None of those taken to tho hospital have died up to midnight. Two  hundred men arc now at work clearing  away the wreckage. The buildings containing the pool rooms, clothing store  and the restaurant Avere three-story  brick structures, while the three other  buildings were two and a half story.  Mob Killed Negro Price.  NEW ORLEANS, August 5.���A ; special  to the PIceayune from Carrollton, Miss.,  says: The armed mob which has been In  the Taliaferro neighborhood for two days  looking for Sally Layton and others, during some time last night killed Will Price,  a negro, who worked for Mr. Taliaferro,  and lived within two hundred yards of hi.-s  residence, lie was found dead on the road  on Mr. Duke's place, some miles from any  place or trees or any place to hang ���myope, with a rope around his neck and mutilated with gunshots. The verdict waa  "Came to his death at the hands 'of unknown persons." It is thought he went  to the Tallafoi'i'o' residence and I old. Jack  Taliaferro all about the murder and said  that the plan was to kill both the old people and Jack, the youngest boy, while  Lynn was away, and shoot him when he  returned. It Is understood that the mob  have quit work and that Its members have  gone to their homes. No arrests have been  made of persons who engaged lu the  lynching:*.  -For  They Kept Money in Paper.

He is responsible to  the people of the province for the conduct of its business affairs; and if he  has heads of departments that have  ..cen tried and found to be utterly useless, no more consideration should be  shown them than'were they in responsible positions in private firms or corpo-  - rations. AVere they so employed/some  of them Avould have' been given ���������a.  month's notice long ago. 'Premier Dunsmuir possesses toe confidence of the  people as a business man, and he should  act as a business man would act under  similar circumstances. This is Avhat the  Victoria Colonist says on the question  raised by The Tribune, and the Colonist is owned and controlled by ' Mr.  Dunsmuir: "May Ave suggest that what  *��� British Columbia demands in a pre-  ��� " micr is only that he shall possess the  "confidence of the country? The value  "of a personal folloAving'in the house'  " is something, but better than that is  *? the knowledge of the members that  "���the country is behind the premier..Mr.  "Dunsmuir has never sou-jht to be a  " personal leader. His ambitions do not  " run in that direction at all. Ho does  " not care about political leadership.  " But he does desire to enjoy the confi-  - " dence of tho people of the- province,  "where practically his whole life has  "been spent, and where his whole vast  " interests are centered. As a British .  " Columbian, he Avould like to bo able  "to do something for British Columbia,  " and that not for the prestige Avhich  "would attach thereto, but because he  " is thoroughly loyal to the province.  " We feel sure that if he thought his  " surrender of office would promote in  -'any Avay the welfare of British Colum-  " bia, he Avould promptly hand his res-  " igna'tion to the lieutenant-governor.  " Such a premier is not concerned about  " the question of. personal following. His  " only desire is to do what is right. Mr.  " Dunsmuir makes no claim to political  "sagacity, but he does to political hon-  " esty. He has no ambition to make a  " name for himself as a successful poli-  -^-tician���but=he=:AV'ould=likej=Avhile=he=is^  " in office, to accomplish something for  " his fellow-citizens." All of Avhich, if  it means anything, means that the Colonist, the personal organ of the premier,  is in accord Avith the views expressed  by The Tribune. Premier Dunsmuir, do  your duty to the people of British Columbia. You do not owe the politicians  anything, for if they had had their  way you Avould not now he premier.  ���Railroad'construction Is fairly lively  in Kootenay and Yale, notwithstanding  the V. V. & E. crowd did not get what  they wanted at the last session of the  legislature. Four new roads are under  Avay, and the C. P. It. is making a  change in its main line which -will be  almost as costly as the construction of  a 50-mile railway. If this proves anything, it proves that the people, through  their legislature, need not pay a dollar  towards raihvay construction in Kootenay and Yale if they only have the  patience to Avait. Railways Avill be built  as soon as there is business to justify  their building, and sometimes before,  as has been shewn in the case of the  Kuskonook branch of the Great Northern railway. Premier Dunsmuir was  wise in not acceding to the demands  of the railway-charter mongers, and his  wisdom and display of backbone has  saved the people of the province many  hundreds of thousands of dollars.  There is little that is new in regard  to the situation at Rossland; Both sides  are watching each other closely, and  neither makes a single move that is  not reported to the other. At Northport,  the United States marshal and a number  of deputies are busy serving individuals  with copies of judge Hanford's injunction, which practically places Northport  under the protection of tho United States  government, all because Bernard McDonald has a shingle sign hanging in front  of a law office in Wallace, Idaho,   What  a travesty on freedom aud government  by the people!  Hon. J. H. Turner, minister of finance  in the Dunsmuir government, in an interview in the Victoria Colonist, shows  conclusively that the Memorial of the  Mine Owners' Association is an extremely reckless 'presentation of a case. He  loaves the Memorialists AVithout standing in court. As the Memorial has excited so .little attention in the province,  it will probably never bo heard of again.  It has gone where all the slush that has  emanated from the mine OAvners' newspapers has gone���into the Avastebasket  of oblivion.  Is Going.  The household furniture of the hon.  J. H. Turner is advertised to be sold  by public auction at Victoria, on the  2Sth inst. The finance minister seems  to be under the impression that.he is  going to London, notwithstanding the  other plans prepared for him by the  political wiseacres.���NeAV ; AVestminster  Columbian.

The case  Avas brought up on an appeal from the  judgment of the Irish courts awarding  a Avholesale butcher damages against the  Butchers' Assistants' Association, Avhich  brought pressure to bear on retailers to  boycott plaintiff until he dismissed a  certain non-union employe, threatening  otherwise to call out the union employes  of the firms concerned, and finally it induced the non-unionist 'to leave the  plaintiff. The lords dismissed the appeal on the ground that the acts of  Avrongful and malicious conspiracy Avere  not undertaken to advance the interests  of the Avorkinen themselves, but solely  to injure the plaintiff..''-'. .7  ������������WH-WUJ I -rirtlM II^UM-Uilli^g  .1. -J.  ���H   ��:��_   ��T4  !��*b -b *b. -b 'b -b * *b  Classified advertisements in- v*  serted for ONE-HALF CENT A *  Avord each insertion.

The Hill-Morgan combination is rapidly accuiring a great- fleet of ocean  carriers for the Oriental as Avell as the  coast trade. In addition to the steamers  already .bought of Dodwell & Co. the  United States transports soon to be put  on the market by the government will  be 'acauired. Tlie whole of this great  fleet Avill be operated in connection Avith  the Northern Pacific and Great Northern  railroads. The official announcement of  the purchase of Dodwell & Co.'s Oriental  liners Tacoma, Olympia and Victoria and  their coast steamship City of Seattle,  now in the Southeastern Alaska trade,  was made recently. Possession of the  City of Seattle was given last Monday.  The Oriental ships Avill bo turned over as  fast as they arrive in port. The consideration paid for these ships is $1,000,000,  Avhich leaves about $225,000 as the price  of the City of Seattle, the Oriental liners  being ��ut in at a fair valuation. The  tCity of Seattle, purchased by the Northern Pacific, it is said, is to be used as a  nucleus of a line that will control .Alaska  rates and business, which has heretofore been somewhat demoralized. The  Dodwells will act as the operating  agents of the line, although the whole  steamship business Avill be placed under the general superintendency of A.  E. Law, now assistant general superintendent of the Northern Pacific and stationed at Tacoma. The next step to be  taken by the Hill-Morgan combine will  be to add to and strengthen its Oriental  line by buying in the United States  transports that will soon be put on the  market by the government. The influence of J. P. Morgan will be sufficient  to have these all offered in a bunch;  and he will '��� have sufficient capital to  acauire ail-that tare desirable. The com-  , munity, of interest** Avill be sufficiently  powerful "to prevent strongly competitive- bids.   -  "I don't think that the deal betAveen  the Dodwell Company and the Pacific  Coast Company will have any far-reaching effect upon Coast commerce except  that the rate Avar between Coast ports  and Alaska Avill be discontinued," senator Perkins said recently. ."The effect of  the deal upon the Oriental trade is its  important feature.. I know that Hill of  the Great Northern is reputed to OAvn  considerable stock in the Pacific Coast  Company. Therefore I conclude that the  deal means the consolidation of the two  traiis-Pacificsteamship companies. This  will make the service Avith the Orient  better and more complete and will in  every Avay enhance the chances of the  Great Northern and Northern Pacific  to obtain a large share of the growing  Asiatic trade. ' The deal is one of vast  importance."    A Lucky Negro.  Peter Postell, who died here recently,  was the richest nesro in the South.  Thirty-seven years ago he was tried ���  Hopkinsville, Kentucky, for having no  visible means! of support, but the case  was dismissed. Postell was born 60  years ago in York District, North Carolina. He was a slave and belonged to  JElijah Postell. Avho sold him in 1S5S to  ~P7~J7~Glass atTlichTnondrVirginla. Mrr  Glass took him to Hopkinsville! At  the beginning of the civil Avar he ran  away from his master and joined Company H, Sixteenth regiment, United  States Colored Volunteers, at Clarksville, Tennessee. He returned to Hopkinsville, where he was mustered out  in 1866. With $250 -capital he started  a small grocery two .years later. Since  that time he prospered in a remarkable  degree. He was one of the largest real  estate owners in'the city, and held much  bank stock, turnpike stock and other  securities. His handsome three-story  brick business block stands on the site  of the little frame building in Avhich his  business career began. His dwelling is  one of .the finest and most beautifully  furnished in Hopkinsville. He Avas a  believer in the higher education of his  race. All of his children are graduates  of Fiske University. He gave liberally  to colored charities and educational institutions. Seven years ago Avhen John  Chatham said he would build a $100,000  hotel-if Hopkinsville people Avould subscribe, one-third of the amount, there  Avas a mass meeting for the purpose of  raising the stock. Postell, from his  seat in the gallery, subscribed $1000.  Up to that time only $50 and $100 subscriptions had been offered. It was a  characteristic act. Postell Avas a Republican and a Methodist, and a member of various fraternal societies.  THE CANADIAN  BANK OF COMMERCE  WITH WHICH IS AMALGAMATED  THE  BANK  OP  BRITISH COLUMBIA.

This announcement, coming so soon after the fall of a hu_re mass of stone in  Westminster Abbey, due to the destruction by rust of the iron clamps by which  the stones Avere fastened in their place  hundreds of years ago, has given rise  to very serious alarm among the English people Avith regard "to the safety  of their two most famous cathedrals.

For the plot of a penny dreadful or a  cheap melo-drama the Harm-Palmer  scandal at Ute. loAva, furnishes rare  materials in the way of a multiplicity  of exciting incidents following one after  the other in startling rapidity. Mrs.  Harm, the wife of a prosperous merchant, called onRichard Palmer, a local  banker, one day in* June, and told him  his wife Avas iii love with, her husband  and Avas at that very moment Avith him  at his place of business. Palmer hurried  to the store and when he confronted  Harm, tho merchant fled from the place  and Avas never seen afterward.1' Palmer  commenced an action against the missing man, asking damages for the alienation of his wife's affections. On July  Sth a corpse Avas found in Soldier creek,  near by, and by the clothing and personal effects identified as the remains of  Harm. A plot Avas purchased in Butler  cemetery and the. body Avas interred by  the widow. The next move was an action by Mrs. Harm against Palmer for  ?10,000 damages for causing the c  of her husband. At the same time  sho put in a - claim through attorney  Harding of Charter Oak, Iowa, for $14,-  000 insurance on her husband's life.  Facts have just come to light which  tend to prove that Harm is not dead,  but that another body was procured and  used for the purpose of collecting the  life insurance. On the date of 'Harm's  disappearance the crcelc was so shallow  that the man could not have drowned  in it and the body had evidently not  Does  not  contain  any  harmful  ingredients, fronbrcw.

The scare Avhich New York has had  in connection with the Brooklyn bridge  has had its counterpart in London in  St. Paul's Cathedral and the public has  been startled by the expert announcement that the vast edifice is in danger  of collapse. The enormous wall of the  south transept which is 8 to 10 feet  thick, 130 feet wide and 150 feet high,  is showing a number of very alarming  breaks, due, it is believed, to the subsidence of the soil, while the Avest front,  Avith its heavy towers and bells, is also  shoAving unmistakable signs of subsidence.

After his disappearance there was a heavy rainstorm, resulting in a freshet that would have  washed the body far away had it been  in the creek. It has been learned, too,  that Mrs. Harm and attorney Harding,  accompanied by his brother, made frequent mysterious trips about the time  of Harm's disappearance, and finally  suggested the search of the creek, which  resulted in the discovery of'the-body.  Harding'has disappeared and is supposed to be in Boston. Before he left  he told friends that Mrs. Harm talked  too much. He 6nce* narrowly escaped'  disbarment and Mrs. Harm expressed a  belief that he was trying to swindle  her.

LONDON, August 5���Although no division was ���challenged at the third reading of the king's declaration bill this  evening in the house of lords, it is  generally believed that no further attempt will be made to pass it, either  this session or the next. Lord Salisbury, the premier, referring to the statement of the Catholic peers, said the government now realized that the Catholics  did not wish the offensive wording of  the original declaration to be withdrawn  unless the government at the same time  withdrew the declaration regarding the  succession of the Protestants. The government never had the slightest intention of withdrawing that. The1 Catholics  regretted that they must be prepared to  see the declaration stand in its present  form.  Thorpe & Co. bottle it.

The company is ready to provide  everything if the department will but  furnish the teacher, but so far* it has been  impossible to secure any satisfaction from  tlie men who have charge of tho educational  department  at  Victoria.   There are  at the present time a very large number  of children of school age at the mine and  captain Gifford is of��� the opinion that unless something- is dono soon he will lose  a number of his best miners, who will bo  unable to remain at the mine unless some  educational facilities are provided for  their children.  * * *  XV. 3. Goepel, inspector, of provincial offices, returned to Nelson on Saturday  night' from, a trip to ������'Atlin. He ' reports  that country as a trifle backward, owing  to litigation.

Olson of Ainsworth was in  Nelson yesterday. Ho says that Ainsworth  will yet become the best mining, camp in  the province, as the Highlander property  is developing well. The- owners now have  good ore in both of the drifts which have  been run in on the big ledge and in one  place they have four feet of solid cie.  Nothing is known as to the values, but  tlv.-y ���!.<��� said to.be such as will leave n  handsome margin upon the company's  operations. AVhen the company considers  itself in shape to resume operations the  Highlander should employ sufficient men  to make Ainsv, ortl*. a very bus;, camp.  Charlie is of the opinion that the proposed  refinery should bn built at Ainsworth. as  he is convinced that it will shortly resume  its place as the chief mining center of  the district.  the Flour mamufactured  BY THE  TS BAY COMPANY  HAS RECEIVED THE  AT THE  AND THE  AT THE  ALL THE FLOUR MADE BY THE COMPANY IS FROM SPECIALLY SELECTED WHEAT  ready a town has been started about'a  mile east of Blairmore, whicli gives promise of being lhe model mining town of the  province.
