A Boundary Mine Has Contracted to  Ship Ore to the Hall Mines  Smelter at Nelson.  GREENWOOD,   August   2S.���[Special  to  The Tribune.]���Lcquime & Powers,  owners of the Midway sawmill, who last  week arranged with the company that is  building   the   railway   between   Grand  Forks and Republic to, supply sawn timber, have purchased the sawmill put in  near Curlew, Washington, by the notorious  fake  company,   whicli  under the  management of one Tuttle of Minneapo-  . lis, fleeced so many shareholders, in Min-  .ncsota   and"   neighboring   states.   This  mill   is  situate  about  two   miles   from  Curlew, and  it will  be utilized  by the  ."* new owners to cut much of the lumber  required   for  the   bridges  and  culverts  between the international boundary line  and Republic.   The same firm is putting  in another  mill. on  the,. north fork of  Kettle  river,  above  the" Granby   Company's smelter dam near the location of  Spraggett's recently burned mill.   Each  mill will have a daily capacity of about  30,000 feet of lumber.   The total quantity  the mill owners have contracted to supply to the railway company is about, two  million- feet.    Lequime  &   Powers   are  the: pioneer sawmillers of .tlie-Boundary  ��� country, Powers having started a sawmill, in 1892 on.what was then Eholt's  .ranch, -afterwards ' platted  as" the town  of Midway.  The Montreal' &iBoston; Copper Company is sending 250 tons of copper-gold  ore from its Sunset mine, near Green-  , wood,.to the Hall Mines smelter at Nelson. The* first hundred- tons7 left the  mine' yesterday, and the second -lot of  a, like quantity .was put on the cars'today, and the balance or, the shipment  will be sent out tomorrow. "With the  exception of two cars sent out at different times for tost purposes, no ore  had previously been shipped from the  Sunset. -A- spur *to~ accommodate ten  cars is.being put .in at .the, mino, and  the company has'announced'its intention to erect ore bins and.othcrwise pre-'  pare for shipping regularly.' A-tunnel  run through a small inll on the Sunset  was for more than a hundred feet in ore,  which has --been"proved to continue', for  about 40 feet ��� deeper, than the tunnel  and a greater-distance above the tunnel  towards the top of the hill. The mine  Is equipped with a plant which:includes  two SO. horse-power horizontal return  tubular boilers, an SO horse-power  hoisting engine, half of a 20-drill duplex  air compressor, 10 machine drills, steam  pumps', and all the- necessary accessories. ''About74000 lineal. feet of work  * have been done in underground development on the Sunset and the adjoining  Crown Silver claim owned by the same  company; but not much ore had been  met with 'in the Sunset before that  opened up by the tunnel above-mentioned. ;  H. H. Morris, inspector of the Canadian Bank of Commerce, left by this  morning's train on his return to Vancouver, after having inspected the  branch'of the bank .here.  wliich it is alleged the Great Northern  is interested.  .. Captain C. C. Bennett of the Baden-  Powell South African constabulary  force, formerly of Vancouver, has been  captured by Dewet and is still held prisoner.   This news came in a letter today.  An order was made in the supreme  court tliis, morning for permission to^  the Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern Railway Company to expropriate land for a  railway .line between Cascade and Grand  Forks, "in the affidavits presented the  name of J. J. Hill is frequently mentioned, and the argument in support of.the  application was that the contract was  already let and the line would be built  immediately.  A taxpayer started an action this  morning in the supreme court to restrain the city-from expending $5000 for  the duke of York's reception.

R.  GETS ONE THiRD OF THE  TROUT LAKE TOWNSITE.  Owners Expect tha Railway Company  to Greatly Enhance the Value of  Their Remaining Holdings.  Grand Forks and Columbia United.  GRAND FORKS, August 28.���[Special  to. The Tribune.]���Theby-iaw providing-  for the amalgamation  of Grand Forks*  and Columbia was earned today in both  cities,   the   total   majority   being   170.  The property owners also decided by a,  majority of nine votes that the name of  the future united cities will be "Miner,"  in honor of S. H. C. Miner, president of  the    Granby   Consolidated    Mining   &  ..' Smelting -Company.    The    polling    iu  Grand Forks on tlie amalgamation question and on the three names submitted  as a title for the new city resulted as  follows:    For .155, against 35.   Selection  of a new name:    Amalga 23, Empire 5S,  Miner 81.    Spoilt ballots 2S.    In Columbia    the    vote    stood:    For    amalgamation    50,    against    (J.    Selecting   of  new     name:     Amalga     27,     Empire  27, .Miner 10.   There is great jubilation  over the result, as it means harmony  and progress where antagonism and discord formerly prevailed.   All classes of  .citizens will now unite in building .up  a great mining, commercial, and smelting center in the Kettle River "valley.  The credit of effecting amalgamation is  greatly  due to  the personal- efforts  of  Tracy   W.    Holland,    manager   Grand  Forks & Republic railway, .CD. Rand,  formerly of Vancouver and Spokane, and  . W. C. Haywood.    Mr. Rand was a real  estate operator in Vancouver in its early  days and  attracted  millions. of capital  there for. investment. ��� Grand Forks and  Columbia  will' retain .their   respective  ���names until the amalgamation is given  ���effect to  by  an' act ".of  the  provincial  legislature.

Wilkie, general  manager of the Imperial Bank, left this  afternoon for Victoria. He says his bank  will ship gold from Rat Portage and  other eastern mining centers to the Vancouver assay office.  Captain McKenzie returned tliis morning from New York and St. Paul, where  he is said to have made full arrangements for. the immediate beginning of  operations on the gulf ferry project, in  J. Lonsdale Doupe of the Canadian  Pacific lands . department completed a  deal yesterday with the owners of-the  Trout Lake townsite whereby in return for certain considerations; the railway company receives about one-third  of the lots j in the townsite remaining  unsold. The principal, owners of the  Trout Lake townsite are J.. Fred Hume  of-this, city, aiid John Abrahamson,and  Frank Wells .of Revelstoke. Each of  these owned one-quarter and the remainder was divided into several small  holdings. The owners of ��� the town-  site hope by securing* the interest of the railway company to very  greatly increase the value of their holdings and also shut out the possibility  of rival townsitcs. Iri; return for the lots  granted the railway company undertakes  to put a small.steamer on the lake and  operate it between Trout Lake and Selkirk, which for the'present will be the  .branch, line from Kootenay lake. This  .branch it is,hoped -will-be completed this  fall  when  all  the ore, from the'.-mines  ��� in tlie vicinity "of Ferguson will be.  shipped out via Trout Lake instead of  via Thompson's landing as at. present.  There is also some talk of construction  of.ii five mile branch of railway-to connect these properties, with Trout Lake,  audit is said that a start" may be made  on this work this fall. The townsite *of  Selkirk, the present terminus of the  Lardo branch has been renamed by the  railway company and will hereafter be  known as Twin. Falls. There are some  200 acres in this townsite which has.  been surveyed and cleared, and the lot"!  are now on the market, being handled,  through the land office of the company  in this city and by local agents at Twin  .Falls and Trout Lake.  A Clean Sweep Predicted.  ROSSLAND, August 28.���[Special to  The Tribune.]���The following cable was  received in Rossland this morning:  "LONDON,     August.     28. ���Director  -Rttegg~of~th"e Le" Roi, One of Whitaker  Wright's supporters, resigned ��� today.  Three new directors'will be elected after  the ;. extraordinary geueral meeting -of  shareholders tomorrow. A clean sweep  of,officials at both ends is anticipated."  Among the names mentioned as likely  to appear on the new board are sir  Henry Tyler of Grand Trunk railway  fame; Samuel Robinson the South African mining man, and Robert James  Fiecjieville, a London mining engineer  of note, and who, it is thought probable,  will likely come out to Rossland before  long in the interests of the Le Roi company: ���  The contract for the Norway Mountain wagon road has been let by the government to H. W. C. Jackson of Rossland at ?7000. About CO men will be  employed and the work will be commenced on Monday next.  Reducing Fever Mortality.  ��� WASHINGTON, August 28.���The war  department, through the division of insular affairs, has published a statement  indicating what has been done.by the  military authorities toward ridding the  island of Cuba of yellow fever. Pointing out that in 1899 the death rate from  yellow fever was 20 per cent.of all who  had the disease, the reports show that  now, after two years ot. American rule,  Santiago is as clean as any American  city and has had no yellow fever since  December 27th, 1S99. Its banishment  from- Santiago, its habitation for 400  years, was accomplished.by cleanliness  and energy intelligibly..'directed by the  miliary authorities, .and its absence has  been.no freak or accident. The general  sanitary condition of Havana is said to  be .excellent, the death rate for June  last comparing favorably with many  large cities, as, for instance, Mexico,  with 65.62 per cent, Vera Cruz 37.37, and  Rouen, France, in April last 28.43. The  Havana death rate was 23.28.  Sampson Sick       .  ���' MANCHESTER, New Hampshire, August 28.���Rear admiral Sampson is again  a sick man. According to a dispatch  from Burke Haven today, he is there  quite ill, although he is gaining strength.  He sees no visitors, however, and has  held no consultations on the Schley  court of inquiry. .  CAMP M'KINNEY, August 23.���[Special to The Tribune.]-���At the present  time the only working property in this  camp is the Cariboo mine. Up to October of last year the Cariboo-McKinney  ���Mining & Milling Company had paid  dividends to the amount of $487,087. Superintendent Keane recently estimated  that there was fully 75,000 tons of ore  in sight. It is anticipated that some  time during the fair the proposed plan  of increasing the milling capacity from  20 to 60 stamps will be taken up. With  this end in view development- has been  pushed appre6iably ahead of present  stoping ground. The main shaft is down  a depth" of 365 feet, but this is not the  total depth of the workings." In the  east drift on the fourth level a winze  has been ssunk over 200 feet and "a fifth  'level opened up. On the fifth level, at-a'  depth of 460 feet, the vein has been followed for 400 feet,'and shows an average  of four feet of a splendid grade of  quartz. On the fourth level the workings were in ore for 1380. feet from end  to end. In the west drift on the third  level,; beyond "/the .last break, the ore  was followed without a fault for 230  feet, all clean quartz. The mine and  mill employs an average of -60 men. .  This place has only had a name and  place on the map of British Columbia  since 1884, when the .Victoria vein on  Rock creek was discovered a short distance above the placer diggings of the  early days. It is,-nevertheless, one-of  the-oldest mining camps in the southern  portion of the province, that is, mining  camps of the lode mining era, and as  such has-a history peculiarly its own  and not the less interesting than unique.  It antedates in its mining operationsthe  .now much .more noted* metalliferous  fields of Rossland, Nelson, and the Slocan. Ainsworth camp, on Kootenay  lake, 'alone has claims, to priority in  the matter "of dates.- It'is true'that.in  the very early sixties, the feverish prospectors who had' cradled the -sands of  Boundary and Rock creeks marked its  auriferous ledges'; as they pushed their-  way, farther north to exploit the alluvial wealth "of golden Cariboo. But  quartz to the placer hunter of those days  simply suggested the source of the pay  dirt of, which they were in eager quest.  Lode mining had vnot developed into  the great science of today, and its possibilities were only vaguely impressed  on their minds. Even at this date it is  not probable that Camp McKinney  ���would have been developed," to any appreciable extent, or at all,-if its ledges  had not proven to be free, milling. -  It early attracted capital as 'a promising field, however, and from year' to  year, has slowly but surely came to be  talked of. It was among the first of the  producing camps and its various outputs  of yellow metal are to ue noted in postscripts to tabulated returns in the report of the minister of mines for several years prior to the time when pnv.  'vineial=mineralogist���earlyle^begari^is-  suing them.  Notwithstanding the prominence., it  has had for some time, Camp McKinney  still enjoys that quiet though pleasant  and romantic isolation which has been  characteristic of its history throughout.  Some day, and not very far away in the  future, the whistle of the "iron horse"  will reverberate through the forested  plateau in whjch the camp is situated,  and it will at last be evolved from the  stage coach era of existence to one of  active, restless energy and enterprise.  Then will Hughie Cameron, who has  kept the oldest hostelry in the country,  wake up with a start, rub his eyes, and,  as he sees the train at his door, ruefully ask the boys to have a drink to the  good old days and nights thence and  forevermore brought to an end. One  can even fancy old Hughie at the sight  of the steam monster brushing a tear  from his bronzed cheek and sighing for  the passing away of that phase of pioneer life, in which he has been associated since the sixties, and of which he  is a product and true representative.  The "Father of the Camp," for such is  Hughie Cameron known'as, set his-face  to the west in 1869, and by a rather circuitous route turned up in San Francisco in May of the following year, to  commence a life of toil and privation  that has been, in his old age, rewarded  by the fickle Godess of Fortune. Today  this turdy pioneer is known among the  prospector and miner as the most liberal  and generous-hearted fellow that ever  packed blankets. To look at him one  does not note that the hand of time has  played heavily; he is hale and hearty  as though a generation of sufferings and  vicissitudes in the west failed to leave  an impression. At least he never refers  to the past, for, though fortune has  favored him now, he was not unfamiliar  with the pangs of poverty. Hughie, as  he is familiarly called, was born at Cape  Breton, N. S. He left home at an early  age, shipping in a 53-ton schooner in December, 1869, and after six months in his  shell of a boat, battling the elements in  the long journey around the Horn, he  landed on the hospitable shores of Cali-  to the then practically unexplored Alaska and the Aleutian islands, but his venture was an ill-fated one, no gold being  discovered, so he drifted back to 'Frisco.  In 1873 he started out again and after  reaching Victoria, where he outfitted, he  crossed to the mainland and tramped jt  through to the Cariboo.   He prospected  and placered, making money enough to  return  to  'Frisco,  where   for  a  short  time he lead a life of ease and comparative luxury.    But he and his gold.soon  parted company, and nothing daunted,  he again sallied forth' for new fields to  conoue:'.   This time he struck the Oregon, and continuing north, arrived at  what is how Camp McKinney.   This was  In 1887.   For two years���1892-3���he was  the only white man iri camp, and had to  walk to Rock Creek, the nearest trading  post, some 20 miles distant, for his supplies.    In 1894, when the Cariboo mill  started,  be purchased  the  present log  hotel, but was compelled to move it off  the Cariboo company's ground and re-  erect it on the Teaser claim.   His was  the only stopping place between Rock  Creek, and Fairview; -and fortune again,  smiled on this wanderer.   In '9S he disposed-of some of his holdings during a  brief -Booms which netted him a small  fortune.    Today he is able to gratify  a long cherished wish to visit his old  home, where, doubtless, his relatives and  friends are "being entertained by" stories  of his adventures invthe wild and woolly .  west. ���   ' *  RUSHING RAILROAD  WORK  EXPECT   TO   BE   OPERATING   IN  JANUARY.

Holland of Grand Forks, manager of the Grand  Forks. & Republic  railroad,  was  in  Nelson   yesterday  on  business  in  connection  with  his  company's enterprise. This railway scheme  has   not  been  taken  seriously   by  the  Boundary people,  but it is  now going  ahead so fast that it promises to be in  operation before some of the other roads  projected are well under way. One of the  methods adopted to discredit the Grand  Forks-& Republic road was to dub it  the Hot Air line,  the  inference  being  that it was to be built and operated by  hot  air.   This  name  has  stuck  to  the  road and even its own officials now refer to it by this title. ' ...  *. In speaking to a Tribune representative of his company's railway scheme,  Mr. Holland last evening said that he  con/ideatly expected  to  havo tho road  in  operation   by  the  first  of January.  ;There were at present some 300 men at  work on tho grade and the force would  be increased as quickly as possible. The  road is being built for the purpose of  securing tho tonnage of the  mines in  the It-public camp and hauling them to  Grand Forks for treatment at the smelt-  ef.there. It would be about.42 miles long  and  presented   uo engineering difficulties whatever, tho grades upon it in no  case exceeding one per cent, and even  this was in favor of the ore. The Republic, camp, in the words of -Mr. Holland; occupies a unique-position in-that  it is a camp of developed-mines wjth at  present     no     railway     communication  whatever.  When  the  camp  was   being  developed  there  were several  railways  projected to H; but they never material- \  ized, and  wh'en the claim  owners had  their  development  well  advanced  they  were obliged to shut down, as the ore  in the greater. number���of the properties  would1 not  stand   the  team   haul   into'  Grand Forks. At ono-period in the development of the camp it was ��� thought,  that', the   values  in   the "Republic   ore  .could' be recovered by the cyanide pro-  cess-and in this belief two very expensive cyaniding. plants Were erected only  to be-discarded after they were in- operation  a  short time.-. Mr, -Holland  says  that  the   Republic   ore  may. safely   be  counted upon .to average ��12 to tlie ton.  but'in one or two of the properties considerable shipments of sorted ore may  be expected ..which will'go' as high as ?20  ahd,even-��25 to.the ton. His company,  Mi*. Holland, says, has contracted for the  bulk of the, output' of the camp so .that  it knows just what to expect-from the  camp in the way.i of tonnage .when the  'road is;put through. At the. outset 'Mr-  Holland says there should.be a tonnage  of from'600 to-700 tons of ore per day  from.the Republic mines, and he predicts  great things for  the  camp  after  railway facilities are afforded.  Mr. Holland says there was a move  made' by a rival road to build into the  'Republiccamp-rafter-tlTe~ tonnage- but  -he does not consider that actual-work  will be commenc.-jd now, at least not for  the present..The Grand.Forks & Republic road is a; Canadian enterprise which  v. ill do probably what no other read in  Canada iias done, that of maintaining  itself by hauling raw material from the  United States to Canada for treatment.  The road is being -financed by eastern  Canadian men; and while in tlie east  Mr. Holland completed the purchase  of the rolling stock so that there will  be'no delay once the steel is laid.  miner, from Humboldt.

The syndicate  proposed to build freight warehouses  and elevators at Port Colborne," and to  supplement them by steel lake vessels  and terminals at Montreal. Owing to the  minister's refusal the scheme will fall  through.  Coast News.  VICTORIA, August 28.���The tug Pilot  returned this afternoon from Juneau  with news of tho finding of another body  of -the Islander victims. The corpse  witli"-,*i life-belt on was found on'the  beach near Taku Arm by an Indian, and  he came to Juneau tu report his find.  He was offered ?10 to bring the body,  and did so. The remains were those  of William J. Bracelcn, a Hunker Creek  and faces and bodies were parboiled.  The screams of the injured could be  heard on shore, and the cries of those  who leaped or were blown into the river  were heartrending. So great was the  force of the explosion that a piano in  the upper drawing "room of the boat  was hurled many feet into the river  This proved a fortunate occurrence, for  many' of the injured passengers who  were thrown into the water, scalded and  otherwise, injured, clung to the piano,  which had fallen into shallow water  until  rescued.  -��� When .the explosion occurred mate  Vanderver and pilot Curry were in the  pilot house. Both were hurled with  terific force from the enclosure and the  wheel for some unaccountable reason began revolving with lightning-like rapidity. As a result Of this the rudders  turned the bow of the boat towards the  shore, and she quicklyrtran aground, fastening herself in the mud.' By this time  the vessel had caught fire. Fortunately  the water was not more than four feet  deep and most of the victims were able  to wade ashore.  PITTSBURG,   .August    2S.-Probab'e-  Peace for  the   striking steel   workers;  within  ten   days  was  the   interesting  topic today, but nothing definite could' '  be learned. President Shaffer was averse   -  to talking on the subject.    Finally   he  said  that  while   the  report  might'- be"  true, he had no knowledge of it.   He did  not see how a settlement could" be 'af- "  fected  without  the Amalgamated   As- *  sociation, and while' sobc might hope"-  for good luck; yet in the face'-of the'  gains made  by the strikers he  would'   -  not back down from his original posi-'  tion. - -  .  Notwithstanding the reports that^all-"  Dreirarations  had   been   made.- the   tin--*  Plate mill at Demmler did not start this*  morning.

A large delegation of oil  magnates from Beauinont was before  the house committee today to fight tho  movement, but with little success. It is  asserted by the oil people that this will  prove a serious setback to the oil Industry.  Killed on Honor's Field.  LONDON, August 28���According to a  special dispatch from St. Petersburg, a  duel witli pistols was fought between  prince Alexander pf Sayn-Wittgenstein  and prince Anatole Baria^inski, the  czar's aide-de-camp, the former being  killed.  Government Agent Reported Absconded  VICTORIA, August 28.���F. G. Fauquier, government agent at. Revelstoke,  is reported to have absconded with government monies amounting to somewhere between $2000 and ��3000. An examination is being made of his books.  union���entirclyrpresident Shaffer said:  "Where will they get men to run their,  plants? If we thought they would be"  secured the threat might frighten us.  Until we are assured they'aie forthcoming we will keep our nerve."  Th'e, latest official declaration from  Steel Corporation sources is that the  strike'can now be settled only by the  men going back to the mills. The position the officials take, it is said, is that  the strike is over so far as their dealing with the strikers as a body is concerned. They want workmen for their  idle mills, and men who want work can  have it for the asking at the wages paid  before the mills shut down. They may  be union men or not, but the union can  have no say as to tlieir work or wages.  Notwithstanding the well-determined  position taken by tho Steel Corporation  as to a settlement, another arbitration  scheme was launched this evening by  Simon Burns, president of the Window  Glass Workers Association. Mr. Burns  proposed an arbitration committee selected from among such men as archbishop Ireland, bishop Potter, Seth Low,  Mark Hanna, and others of like prominence, who..after having the entire matter placed to them by both sides of the  controversy, shall have absolute authority to settle upon terms of settlement,  their decision to be .final'and accepted  by both parties. Mr. Burns says he has  president Shaffer's sanction for the  move, and if the Steel Corporation shall  agree to the plan the strike will bo declared off at once. None of the steel  people here will discuss the matter in  any way.  Mr. Shaffer declared tonight that the  strike, in spite of tlie claims of the  other side to the contrary, is proceed-'  ing satisfactorily, and his association is  making such' inroads on the corporation business that it will be compelled  sooner or later to come to terms. His  men, he says, were firm all along the  line, and are determined to stand for  their rights to the end. He says the  few mills that have been started are  doing but little effective work. The fact  that the corporation is adding to its  force dally does not worry the president, because he believes them to .be  either unskilled or poor workmen, who  will be a drawback rather than a help  to their employers. The steel people have  nothing to say. but point to the mills,  at work and the product turned out.  Actions, they say, speak louder than  words. ������������."��� >:ijK'^-.'^J^:^_jij��<__-^^^-fai-��_  _3E9_____��s_s__ll  SI &-3_r  THE  ISTELSOrl TRIBUISrE,  THURSDAY MORNING,  AUGUST  29, 1901  #{ _    -, - - -_"^f  su  *  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  to  ��l  CALGARY LAGER BEER  A CARLOAD OF THIS  FAVOUS BEER  HA.S JUST  BEEN  RECEIVED ANO WE ARE  SELLINC IT TO THE FAMILY TR^DE AT  $ 2.50 per c!o fer quarts.      $1.50 per doz for pints.

It   is    true   that    hon.

Mark  Twain has  be(en  out  yachting  with some friends. He was caught and  interviewed on the yacht near Bar Harbor, and he explained what the occupation of tho company, was when out at  sea and beyond the jurisdiction of the  courts.  He  did  it in  this way:   "This  party lives by borrowing from one aur  other, the amount of the loan being restricted by tho limit of tho-cards." That  is an explanation .for which many a man  will be greatful. It will enable him to  explain the mysteries of business to his  wife when he is held out late at night  on   business,   and   if   she   is   guileless  enough it will be entirely satisfactory.  There is no place.on earth that Mark  Twain shows off so well as in just such,  explanations as that. He is filled with  them.   He   has, written   many   funny  things, but nothing is as funny as he  has talked  in  his daily conversations,  and   a   ripple   of   laughter   has   followed  his  steps   now for  forty  years.

But something else is needed.  The  wear   of   electrical   machinery   is  something immense. How can it be made  to operate with less wear, or how can  it be repaired with cheaper material?  This is the' problem that confonts electricians now, and limits the use of electricity to local uses only. In all transportation the' chiefest item is fueL and-  if electricity can run trains with less  fuel than steam motors, why the old  will have to give way to the new. Still,  there are many people who believe that  the world's great power is to be compressed air. It has advantages over all  the other power makers. It is absolutely  clean;   it  is   absolutely  non-explosive.  Possibly it might be manufactured for  a train or ship when in motion.

HOMBURG, August 28.���The will  of  the late-dowager empress Frederick was  . opened with special ceremony today. Her  fortune totals eleven million marks.'Her  ... six children receive a million each. The  ���'youngest, princess Margaret of Hesse,  wife of- prince Frederick   Charles  of  Literary Sweatshop.  In an effort to save aspiring people  from the perils of what he calls the "lite  erary sweatshop,"' an anonymous contributor to the Independent presents  some literary and newspaper conditions  that have come under his observation.  His advice to the youth who would-be-  come a literary man or an editor is  .''Don't," and, although it is possible  that some of the terrors he presents are  exaggerated, his illustrations are interesting.  An instance is made of a literary man  who is widely known as a lecturer, and,  who is also the author of five or six  books. This man tojd the writer that  he had not made a cent from any of his  books, as he had to advance money to  get them published. Questioned as to  short stories, as a writer of which he is  familial, "he pulled out large drawers  in his desk and showed me that they  wore filled with short stories." His income from that source during two years  had  been, only $2.  A Chicago book publishing firm told  this_authority_that_during one~year~1700"  manuscript-* of books had been received  and examined. Of this number one was  accepted, and it. contained 80,000 words,  for wliich the author received ?80, or a  rate of $1 for every 1000 words. Another  firm publishing juvenile literature pays  its authors at the rate of $5 per 1000  words, and this firm exhibited a story  from a well-known writer, who was supposed to command a large income. Yet  he accepted the sum of $50 for a story  the typewriting of which must have  cost $30.  Many people who believe earnestly In  their literary work conclude to publish  their own books/ One man who'did this  paid for the printing and binding himself. He had made no efforts for distribution and sale, having forgotten  these important items. When the volumes were brought home they filled an  entire room at his boarding house, and  the landlady charged him $1.50 per week  for rent. He cannot sell the volumes  and, does not know what to do/Another  author in the same predicament became  so desperate that he,went out each day  with a number of his books and sold  them among his friends and acquaintances or even among strangers for any  price he could get. Yet he did not realize what he expended.  "Oh, sweet girl graduate," warns; this,  unknown, "go take "in washing; and  youth of the giant intellect, go labor in  the coal mine, sooner than come in the  literary field!" This is rather pessimistic advice, and in view of the great  flood of modern novels within the last  year it would not appear that the literary market is'so-difficult to reach as  this discouraged gentleman, would make  his readers believe, But it is true that,  unless some great, success is made, litr  eratiireis not a golden path to -wealth,  and those of experience who warn  would-be wayfarers are entitled to their  cry of alarm.  Some Familiar Tautologies.  The books of rhetoric used to tell us  that the. great qualities of style were  perspicuity, energy, and elegance, or  clearness/force, and grace; and that, as  a means toward these and for other reasons, it was important to be concise, to  avoid needless words. Whether they no  longer, teach thus, or whether puipls disregard their instructions, you can  scarcely read a page or a column anywhere without meeting words that add  nothing to others with which they are  immediately connected, Thus:  * General rule, "A rule is genera], of  course, and "no less, so for being liable  to exceptions. There seems no excuse  for piling-the adjective on top of the  noun, unless' some "special rule" is  brought into contrast or "comparison.  Thought to h'imself. -How else should  he think? If he thought aloud' you  would have to say so/ Either he "said  to himself"���which- is another -way of  putting it���or he simply "thought."  Nodded his head. If he had nodded  his legs, or his elbows, the case,��would-  he more "notable. He might, properly  "shake his head," for he could shake  other things;'butrin the present state  of language, one can nod no other part  of himself or of creation than his head.  Together with. If John went to town  with his wife, they went together; if  they went together, he was necessarily  with hor.  Back again, returned again,' rose  again. When this signifies that he returned or rose a second time it is correct; otherwise not. The thought in our  minds is apt "to be that he is here again  after a'' single absence.  Month of May, summer season, etc.  Everybody knows that May is a month  and summer a season.  Rose up. If people were in the habit  of rising down, or if it'were possible to  do so, this would not be tautological.  Young boy, A boy Is perforce young;  "old boy" is a jocose expression, never  taken literally. The case against  "young girl" is not so strong, for "girl"  by itself has unfortunately come to  imply a possible lack of tenderness or  respect.  at other times, or in the main, as with  A. Ward and his giant mind, they  "haven't it with" them when they perpetrate this atrocity. Of course, "there"  at the beginning of a sentence is commonly a meaningless word, used by a  stupid but inevitable idiom to put something before the verb, and, people, for  lack of thought, forget to leave it out  when another word witli a meaning  comes into take its place. Thus Perkins  wants to say, "Here arises a difficulty,"  'having his fine mind concentrated on his  matter,*- oblivious of such small things  as,particles and short words, he blunders upon "There here," which is a monstrosity to eye and ear, or "Here there,"  which is equally as absurd and almost as  barbarous���not quite', for the emphasis  js always on the real word, which in  this case comes first, slurring the useless one that ought to be absent.  It will not do to. say that these specimens abound in the best writers and are,  therefore, justifiable. They are not the  best writers when^they write in this  way��� through pure carelessness, for,''  they know better. ' Nobody is infallible'  but the pope; Homer sometimes nods,  but his nodding did not produce the  "Iliads We' want to follow tlio best  writers jn their excellencies, not iri their  errors.

All three member's of the  council who inspected the matter yes-  trday agree that there is an unnecessary  waste of water and that at present the  city is practically receiving no water  from Anderson creek, most of it being  lost from the flume.. A meeting of the  fire, water and light committee will  probably be called to consider the matter of making necessary repairs.  From fifty to one hundred people register at the hotels in Nelson every day  in the year. Tliis means from $500 to  to $1000 a day outside money is spent  in the town from this source" alone.

William Syers, a miner employed at  the Silver King mine, 'was charged before stipendiary magistrate Crease yesterday with being drunk and creating  a disturbance on the public highway  in the vicinity of the mine. When the  case was called it was seen that the  charge laid was hit upon to avoid complications and that the real offence committed: by Syers occurred in the mine  itself. Captain Gifford was. the chief  witness. His story was-that the foreman  of the mine when going his rounds  found Syers in the mine drunk. He ordered him to the surface' but Syers  would not go quietly, and when he did  reach the fifth level ;he committed a  technical assault u*)oh foreman Morrison, Syers . pleadedr guilty to the offense as charged and was fined ?20"and  costs. _**.'

VANCOUVER, August 28.���Although  there is no limit1 to the soekeye season,  as in previous years'-there will be little  more fishing done on the Fraser river  this season. For the.past two days the  canneries haye not put iip more than 200  cases daily each, and it is probable by  Saturday the nets ��� will be hung up.  The total pack to date has been estimated by the secretary of the Canners'  Association to be about 830,000 cases,  and the total pack ot the season will  certainly fall ��� short of 900,000 cases. It  was thought up to the first of last week  that the million mark, would surely be  reached, but the sockeyes cease.d to run  almost as suddenly -as they started in.  Owing to the big soekeye pack no humpbacks will be canned Jthis season. It was.  learned on the best authority that a  large portion of the salmon pack is to  be stored iri the canneries, .so that the  English markets may not be gutted.  As the salmon fleet consists ��� of nine  vessels, capable on an average of carrying 60,000 cases each, it cannot be' contemplated to send more than half a million cases to market, the balance to be  retained* for disposal:after the market  has recovered from,the effects, of the  Lig consignments from British Columbia and Pugent Sound..

Doupe, C.  P. R. land agent at Winnipeg, and A.  Taylor,; C. P. R. land agent at Nelson,  vwere in Trout Lake this week. Yesterday they, made a trip around the lake  in the. Idler; examining the shore line.  On Wednesday Messrs. Doupe and Taylor with half a dozen men located the  site for the station, also the point at  which tha wharf will be constructed.  This latter work, it is expected, will be  completed this fall t/ogether with a  warehouse. They will . n located in the  neighborhood of Park street where it  emerges onto tho shore.  "Ysterday evening the final arrangements were made in Revelstoke and tho  papers signed whereby a portion of the  unsold lots of th Trout Lake townsite.  become the property of the C. P. R. This  arrangement includes the establishment  at an early date of a station of a warehouse and a station and a wahn, K j_.  Wells, the general agent of the Trout  Lake Townsite Company at Revelstoke,'  is,.the authority for the statement* that-  the final arrangements will be completed on Friday.  . , '   .,   * .  "Speaking to Mr.'. Sullivan, he. said  the first eight miles of the road has been  railed and ballasted and that the track-  laying crew would commence on the second'section right away. When this is  finished it will-bring the rails within  13 miles of Duchesnay,% at the foot of  Trout Lake. The wagon" road was now  within five .miles of the same point.  There was still some four or five miles  of right-of-way to be cut, and this work  together with the grading was being  proceeded with as quickly as it could  be done with the limited force of men  it was possible to obtain. He said the  work was being hampered because of the  difficulty the contractors experienced  in getting men for the work. They  found it impossible -at present to fill  .up their gangs, notwithstanding the fact  .that Messrs., Carlson and Porter were  offering 25 cents per day .more than  was being paid on any other construction in the province.' That the road will  be built this fall is expected, although  the difficulty of obtaining men was retarding it at present. However, he expected that later on labor would be  more plentiful, and with the full complement of men the work would be  pushed ahead with greater expedition."  ~z*xm*zxxixxxxxxizxaxxxiixTixxzxixxzxzxxxxxxxxxxxzxxxzzxxxxxxzxxiixiiixizxxxxxxxizxxizxxxxxxxxxxxiixzx:azxx  THE   PROSPECTORS   EXCHANGE  No. 4, K.

Cumberland Mine Fire.  NANAIMO, August '28.���Thomas Morgan, inspector of mines, who returned  from Cumberland on the Thistle on Sat-  _urday,_states_that-the-work-of-flooding  the  burning mine   has  already   commenced there.   A trench has been opened through the 100 yards separating: th'e  mine from the lake and they are letting  about 2200 gallons a minute in from that  source.    In addition-to this  there are  two   pumps  working,,  which,  together  with the surface water, introduces about  1000 gallons more, so that about 3000  gallons a minute are being poured in.  At this rate it will take about a month  to  flood  the mine.   < Inspector  Morgan  estimates that it will.be two years before  the  lower workings of the mine  will be in a condition to work again.  The upper workings, which have been  untouched by the fire, will be in shape  to work, however.    It' has hegn found  tliat owing to the oil which Ja found  in the shale of the mine that theflre  was running into the shale, which necessitated the management taking these  measures and flooding.the mine as the  only course open to them.

A more striking case occurred  during the British maneuvers when one  admiral learned all the plans of the opposing squadron by tapping messages of  instructions sent by,the other admiral  to his captains. ,  __or_Bto_ Block, Baker Street.  5T#lej>hone 161.
