some ten "scabs" from - Northport to

.oday, there.has been no change in the
^rike situation worthy of note. The

horities have forbidden the public to
[rass over any portion of their grounds.
Iven walking on the railway tracks,
hich run over their claims and which
lave been in use ever since they were
taid, is now prohibited, and men are
tationed to warn people off. No par-
lcular reason is assigned for the ac-
ion, and as the walks'around Rossland
re necessarily restricted, there is a
ood deal of grumbling over the, new
emulations. ,
Frecheville -was -expected to land, in
'*Tew York today, and it is said that
.ratnober is on;hand to meet him and
.company him*to Rossland.   It was asserted today that. Instructions had come
rom England,*to -begin no fresh work

so long been the head, and succeed the

premier and run the legislature on strict-
party lines Mr. Haultain, when spoken
to about it, said there was no founda-,.
tion for the report so far as he was con-

their quota of Liberals and Conservatives, and that consequently any such
change as suggested would mean a' dissolution of the house and the flrst fight

minister at Washington 'that* a Venezuelan fleet was bombarding the port of
tRio Hac_. is denied by Dr. A. J. Rcs-

the attack was made by the revolution-
ar-" fleet.   ' ■f       ,  .    '    ■
"'Local revolutionists vLad expected the
news of j the engagement for'the last
week'and' were jubilant yesterday, be-
„cause they felt^ little" doubt about the

Dr. Restiepo said the capture of Roi

entire 'Atlantic "coast/ including Barran-

'days session here today. Dr., Trueblood,
an American delegate," said the peace
.sentiment in America was the stronger

recurrence of the disorders and the repayment of expenses. ' Germany, says
the article, has/no ambitious schemes.

! BUFFALO/- September -10.—The-.re-
'ports of- eminent physicians,!in^attend-
anceiupon the^ wounded president 1;oday
;'C*o_amitted themselves jvithout^reserva-
tion^to the opinion' that "thei/; patient
yas' out of danger, and that .only the
possibility- of complications, threatened
•his life., iThey, did not „say,"-however,*
that ~his- recovery was certain;*^that ,4s!
cjollectivelyj over their signatures in'an
official* bulletin      That was more than
could*be asked in reason. Scientific men,
, no matterJhow strong their convictions
imight be/could not be expected'to'assume- the, grave -responsibility of .confidently, proclaiming the "certainty .'of, the
recovery^ of 'a man lying H'on a bed, of
.pain .withla^bullet-.hole' m his' stomach.
" But-'individual.y'arid • separately -during*
the day, each of--them, with^the exception of Dr.>Rixey,vwho did not leave
the   Milburn   residence,   placed   themselves squarely; on r,ecord not privately,'
to the friends of the president, but publicly through 'the "agency of the press,
that the danger point had passed and
that the president wpuld survive the attempt upon his life.*1       -   ' ■
J "Of course .we/will all feel easier when
a week has-passed,^' said^Dr. McBurney.
"We would like _to see.eyery'door locked'
and doubleMocked, but the danger from
possible complications is now very re-
*mote."-* As. an'evidence of the supreme
faith he holds, Dr.,McBurney, after the
morning, consultation,  made a trip to
Niagara Falls, and'this evening return*
cd to New York. , He could reach here
again in ten hours  if the ^unexpected
should happen, and .there should be a
change, for the Avorse.;   The little piece
of lead in the muscles of the back is
giving the physicians no concern whatever.    Unless ,it should prove troublesome to the patient later on, ho probably will carry his grim souvenir of the
Anarchist with him tp the end of his
days.    The doctors * say , that once encysted it can do no harm.   Thousands of
men  are  today walking the' earth  in
perfect health with much larger chunks
of lead in their bodies."   The X-ray machine is ready.for use, and if there is
the slightest inflammation or pain  in<
the vicinity of the bullet an operation
will be performed.
The vice-president, members of the
cabinet, Senator Hanna, and the other
distinguished friends of president McKinley who have remained here to await
the issue, accepted the verdict of tho
physicians today as practically conclusive, and there was an exodus of those
who consider their presence noylonger
necessary. Senator. Hanna returned to
Cleveland on .business today.'to- be gone
two days, and comptroller. Dawes] went,
back to Washington tonight. Abner McKinley, the president's brother, will remain a few days longer, but his family
have returned home,, and Mrs. Duncan
and several other relatives of the president have gone. Judge Day,, long associated with, the president, returned ,to
Canton this afternoon. Five members
of the cabinet, still here, will remain a
tew ,days rather as friends who have
been intimately associated with the
president for years than as public officials.
* Vice-president Roosevelt left the city
tonight at 9:30, for Oyster Bay, perfectly confident that tho president will
recover. So confident was. he, in fact,
that when a question of doubt was put
to him he answered with a parry. He
was asked: "Do you remember that
president Garfield progressed for ten
days, and that just when he was ready
to get out he collapsed and finally died?"
Quick as thought the vice-president said:
"Ah; but you forget.twenty years of
modern surgery, of progress. From what
I can learn also the Garfield wound
was much more serious than the wound
' of president McKinley. I believe that
the president will recover, and believe
it so thoroughly that I leave. here to-
Questioned as to the mode of procedure so. far as the state was concerned,
he Bald: "I see no reason for the call
of an extraordinary grand jury. The
grand jury now in session, composed of
American citizens, will undouhtedly'take
care of the would-be'assassin,' anu the"
authorities of Erie county will, for^coun-
ty, state, and national pride, make1 a
vigorous prosecution. Unless governor
Odell is asked to interfere, I see no need
, of'his callfng an extra term,or deputizing-, an assistant attorney-general to
prosecute." a v rp ^ s t *- _ '\^
Asked as to, the'enacting of legislation
against Anarchists", he"" said: "I have
no'.t thought, much on the matter. What
has, disturbed me'has been to find a'
> reason ,for even anarchy to attack a man

V CHICAGO, September 10.—United!
States secret officers in Chicago have
come to the conclusion that the attempted assassination of president McKinley
was the result of a plot arranged in this
ever said to Leon Czolgosz knowingly
would have ,Ied him to do the act which
startled everybody Friday."
'"Not even in your lectures? He says
your words set his brain on fire," asked
the interviewer.
."Am I accountable because some
crack-brained person put a wrong construction ^n my words? Leon Czolgosz,
I *am convinced, planned the deed un- '
aided and entiiely alone. There is no
Anarchist ring which would help him.
There may be Anarchists who would
murder, but thero also aro men in every
walk of life who sometimes feel the Impulse to kill. I did not know surely, but
I thing Czolgosz was one of those downtrodden men who sco all the misery
which the rich inflict upon the poor,-
who think of it, who brood over it, and
then in despair resolve to strike a great
blow, as they think, for the good of
their fellow-men; but" that is not anarchy. Czolgosz (the woman pronounced
the name with the greatest ease) may
have been inspired---by me,--, but if he was
he took'the wrong way of showing it"
The police officials are not satisfied
with Miss Goldman's story. When captain Schuettler and detective Hertz discovered her at the home of one Norris,
at 303 Sheffield avenue, she*denied her"
"HeJIo, Miss Goldman," said the captain, as he entered the' parlor., "Are
you glad to see me?"
"I'm not Miss Gpldman; I am-a Swedish woman, and my. name is Lena Larson," answered the woman, endeavoring
to imitate the Swedish dialect
"All right, I speak Swedish myself,"
said the police officer, as he poured out
a few questions in the Norse tongue.
Miss Goldman did not answer, affecting
to misunderstand.
Detective Hertz' meanwhile had been
investigating and had discovered a pen
with the name Emma Goldman engraved
thereon;, "What does this mean?"
shouted the captain, holding the telltale article before the owner's eyes.
"It means; that the game is up/* she
said. She then admitted herY identity
and accompanied the police to the office
of chief O'Neill.
Captain Colleyan/chiefYof detectives,
has sworn out a warrant charging Emma Goldman with conspiracy to assassinate president McKinley. She is being
held at the central police station in >
this city.  '

TVhen'seen'by a*, correspondent, Mr.vMc-  Dougall said,that he visited his father's  ,"bld home in Argyleshire and the Glasgow exhibition.   Like'every onVwho has  "visited the'exhibition,-he speaks highly  ,of it and of the creditable showing made  by Canada.   He talked of Canadian'com-  missioner W.'D.-1 Scott'as a>man who'  -knows-his-businessrr-^Mr.���McDougali's-  principal mission, however, was to look  into' the British method of auditing and  dealing with accounts.   He had a' letter"  of introduction from' the governor-general to the'colonial office, and was there  shown every attention and given all the  iriformation he'desired.   He spent some  time in the exchequer and audit department, looking over the way the business  was conducted there.    It is uriderstoo"_  that he will make some recommendations in his next annual report as a result of his observation.    However, MrY  McDougall is of the opinion that while  there   are   some   things   that   Canada  might adopt in its audit office from the  British system, there are other things  which'it would be to the advantage of  Britain to'take from us.   The credit system in Canada was superior to the British.    The  competitive system,  in 'Mr.  McDougall's opinion, worked well in the  civil service. * ,-  ^ *        i  Furniture Dealers  Funeral Directors  and Embalmers  y     '      ' i .,               Worth  Vor  Oak h Center   Tables .'.$3 50  $2 75  Oak Center Tables '....6 00  4 60  .Oak   Center   Tables BOO  375  Oak    Leather..

There is not-a whole-,  sale.Arm but has far more orders, for  sugar than it can, supply at present.  The trouble is all caused by the preserving season that has burst upon the  town and country. The sugar market  * has been very weak, and the wholesale  people have avoided loading themselves  up with it. Now they have been caught  napping. Fruit that has been very high  in price is coming in, plentiful and  cheap, and housewives are commencing  preserving. Although the peach crop on  the North Shore is very light, they have  abundance of them on Slocan river. Telegrams and letters are pouring into the  wholesale firms, asking for sugar, and  the refinery at Vancouver is unable to  ship it fast enough, although carloads  are arriving in the city daily. The wholesale men say there will be no immediate  increase in the price, but predict a raise  very shortly... They'say this is the time  to, buy.   ���':'������      ���.'

One of tho first steps taken by the  J British atter the capture of Jolian_.es-  i burg was to provide for the administration of the town, which is so im-  poitant   factor   in   South   African   in-  dustiy.   The municipal requirements of  ^Johannesburg*, cannot be said to have  \ecn  adequately   looked   after   by  the  i government of the  South African  re-  I public    In the eaily days the settlers  [formed an informal'sanitary committee,  J and as the town grew the Transvaal  v> executive council  by degrees  provided  i a form of municipal government.   As it  existed subsequent to 189C, the chairman  was a nominee of the Transvaal government, half of the members had to  Jvbe buighers, and the Taal, or dialect of  the Dutch commonly spoken m South  Africa, was the medium of speech.   The  government did not commit to the municipal body so constituted control of  the franchises of -,'the town, and president Kruger and his advisers were accustomed to grant concessions disposing  of municipal ground and public squares  ���without reference to the town council.  Once, for instance, an attempt��was made  from .Pretoria to grant a concession tfor  the erection in, the market square of a  block of houses" on pillars, as the president, though desiring the returns from  the undertaking, did not wish to^ deprive  his buighers of "the privilege of out-  spanning in the square.   The town council was not even granted control over  the streets of the town.    Secrecy was  one of the characteristics of the operations of the council,   no agenda were  published, and the minutes when written  were, not compiled.   The administration  of the city was bad, and the suburbs,*,  which rapidly grew up, resisted' annexation to the city with all their night.  When lord Robeits *captured Johannesburg^ he'placed the administration of  it in the hands of major O'Meara, ,R E ,  C.M.G., who had been second.in com-  -mand during thelsiege of Kimberley,  andY had -subsequently been-employed  on the staff of ,the military governor  ��� of Bloemfontein. For about eleven  months major O'Meara administered  Johannesburg single-handed. Among  his difficulties was the decidedly serious  one that he.hadjio defined source of  revenue, notwithstanding this he managed to get along without getting any  financial assistance from the government, and kept the machinery of administration moving at very low cost.  .When the new town council assumed  office," the budget which major'O'Meaia  submitted" to it showed a deficit cf  ��37,730 only.-  i When, in March last, lord Milner visited the, Transvaal, he decided upon giving the-town a more formal municipal  , government, and upon lending it a sum  upon_which to carry on its administra-  ^tionr^_BIection_being_for_the_momcnt-  impossible, lord Milner -selected twehe  residents of Johannesburg and nominated them town councillors, under the  presidency of major O'Meara as government commissioner. The council has  been chosen so as to represent the  mines, commerce, the professions, the  artisan class and the foreign element.  By the terms of the proclamation appointing the town council the governor  of the Transvaal undertook to advance  to,the Johannesburg municipality until  June 30, 1902, a sum not exceeding  ��100,000, at 4 per cent.  The new council went to work industriously, and within three weeks  had  divided itself into committees and arranged its procedure, whicli included a  Tigorous insistence upon publicity of administration.   The estimate presented to  the council by major O'Meara was, that  an expenditure of ��20,000 must be in-  curred at once for certain necessary "services,- and that at least -��15,000 a month-  would' bevne'eded to carry on current  i work of the municipality; the .monthly'  revenue,  he. estimated,::would, n��t exceed �� 10,000 a month for some time to  come. Z 'While the government. loan.-will  suffice for immediate current expenses,  considerable'/expenditure, will be necessary, bef ore the city, will have a, proper  equipment.'Y P.ublic..rbuildings ���: are. need-,  ,:<__,.the water suppl^,must; be increased,  th:_ town' lighting improved/: and a'������ sys-.  tem7'ct drainage introduced.'

SAVINGS   BANK   DEPARTMENT.'  THB  CURRENT  _____   OF   INTBBXST ALLOWED,  MURDER UNDER WHITE FLAG  Justification for Farm Burning.  Rev. Paul F. Bull, late acting chaplain to the forces in South Africa*, in a  letter to the London Daily Chronicle  gives, for the purpose of helping fair-  minded Englishmen to form a right  judgment on some of the difficulties  with which the military authorities have  to deal, an account of an act of treachery,  and murder committed from the farm of  a surrendered Boer.  "One Sunday morning in April, while  at" breakfast, with the general, a report  came in which said that our patrol _���*._  been fired on from Mr. Richter's farm at  Klip Drift, which was under the white  flag, and one man killed.    It was not  known what  ha'd  become  of  another,  who had been seen to fall.    Whether  killed or only wounded was uncertain. It  was an obvious duty for me to go to  see if I could find this wounded man.  The civilian surgeon of ..the Seventh Dragoon Guards, Dr. Amard, asked if he  might accompany me.   So after parade  service at 9 a. m. we- started.   We decided to walk, as riding* might mislead  the enemy as to,our intentions.    Klip  Drift farm lay ab'out' seven miles off to  our right front. "We made our way past  two cattle pens, past a dead horse, past  an ominous tarpaulin sheet just inside  the garden fence, up to the house, where^  after some delay, the door was opened  by'a young lady, who proved to be Mr.  "Richter's eldest daughter: -  -*.     "    __  "We explained our errand, and she at  .once led us to an outhouse, where we  found   our   wounded   comrade���trooper  Cox of the Seventh Dragoon Guards. He  was lying on a bed,,and by his side sat  a young girl fanning him to keep off  the flies.   He told us his story in a few  words.    As he and Best and another  man were riding up to the farm a terrible fire had opened on them from behind  the wall of the cattle-pen.    Best was  shot dead.   Cox's horse was shot under  him.   He .struggled out from beneath it,  and ran towards the river.   But* a shot  .brought him down when he had run  twenty yards.    The other man,  being  to the rear,  escaped.    After -Qox had  fallen, about fifteen men, well dressed  and  equipped,  came  out  from  behind  the cattle-pen and said they were very,  "sorry"_but_were_obliged_to~doTit.    One*  of them was a doctor, and bound up his  wound,  and  they  carried him  to the  outhouse,  where  we  found  him.    Dr.  Amard then dressed his wound afresh,  and we held a consultation.    Then we  made our way to the garden and drew  aside the tarpaulin and examined^ poor  Best's wounds,   I unpinned his Afghan  ribbon, and on examining his pockets  found a sixpence and a florin, in the  rim of which was the clear-cut dent of  a Mauser bullet.   On turning the body  over we found on the other side a shilling   which    had   been   driven   right  through the body, and was bent double  aud torn.   The wound was only one inch  higher up than that of his comrade.  "After some milk and bread and butter at the farmhouse we made the acquaintance of Mr, Richter, the owner���  a tall, handsome man, perhaps fifty  years of age, with a full iron-gray beard  and a fine figure. He told us. through  his daughter that he could not understand English, but I judged from watching, him carefully,that this was only a  temporary infirmity. He explained with  unnecessary emphasis that he was in  hiding from.the Boers, who would come  to make him go on commando if they  knew he was there. The. hiding was,  rather a thin affair, All the blinds in  the house were drawn down, but-T noticed him walking about with considerable freedom at times when I wasn't look-'"  ing. Next day I pointed out to hiniihow  rash this was, but he said .his 'boys'  were watching in the neighboring hills,  and would warn him in. time to hide  Nelson Branch~Burn_ Block, 221 Baker  \     " *.

M. .LAY, Manager.  j  that his farm was subsequently burned  for another,act,of treachery committed,  from it."  , He concludes: " "I believe this war  will stand out in the records of history  as pre-eminent for the good behavior of  our troops, andNfo_ the care with" Which  our leaders have' taken to temper jus-  ticef>w_th mercy."

,The statutory.meeting bff_he license
'commissioners for,.the City'"of!'Nelson
/will be held this'afternoon a..2 o'clock,
ted to return by the end of the week,
when it Is said that the directors will
take actionrwith respect to the application of the London &'British Columbia Goldfields for an extension -on the
bond which( it holds upon .the Imperial
and Eva groups. Some uneasiness is beginning to manifest itself among the
shareholders of ,the Imperial syndicate.
The failure of the London & British
Columbia Gfoldflelds vto make its second
payment upon tbe-*ond which fell due
in August, has had a depressing effect
'upon Imperials, andx from a premium of
3250, at', which some were sold for, the
shares have-fallen below the amount of
assessments paid upon them." This slump
it is said, is due to the eagerness of some
of the holders to avoid assessments
which the syndicate has seen fit to make
in order to protect its holdings in the
event of .changes being made in the present bond to the 'London & British Columbia Goldfields. •
Sergeant Hardy of the city police
force had a thrilling experience yesterday morning. On Josephine street, just
opposite the Manhattan saloon, he came
upon a trail of blood. There was lots
of it and the policeman decided that he
was on the scent, of a. serious assault
case. He followed the trail down to
Vanstone's drug 1 store where he came
upon quite a pool of,blood. From here
the trail led to' the C. P..-R. station and
the policeman's excitement grew as he
.followed it. He was rewarded by coming upon a dog with a deep gash cut
came upon ajdog with a deep gash cut
in his shoulder.^ It turned out afterwards that 'the animal had been locked
up in the ^Old* Curiosity Shop by mistake, and' to escape , it had Jumped
through one of the" windows, but curiously enough there was not a print of
its feet anywhere in the blood stains'
from the broken window to the station.

How, Do They Stand? '
i    The Province,%of Vancouver,  violent
-anti-Martinite,, says:    "Hon. Mr. Wells
* is a man of .innocent and childlike faith,
so innocent and1 so'--childlike, in fact,"
that it is touching to see him traveling
in his present company. To the Province
yesterday lie said-that the government
would now be-stronger^ fo_ the number'
of men who -would join it with Mr. Martin unless'there,-"were more defections
from the party, a-conttngency too remote
for himself-or other ministers,to bother
about. ,. Now it .the, chief commissioner
of lands Yand'wdrks'really means'what
he says,1 he 'must be afflicted with some
sort of a mental strabismus which causes
him^ to read'names in one column when-
they really are-in'the other. "YHe'shbuld
call the roll\'of%tlie legislature" and see
hoW'.the.Ymembers  stand'..   The' house
may' fairly?,be /divided * into" Martinites
and anti-Martinites once more, for the
premier, -Mr!-1 Dunsmuir, 'takes .a secondary position .in the thing of shreds and
patches - which/\the Colonist calls "the
government 'party."    Now  among the
anti-Martinites -may safely be reckoned-
the following:    Messrs. Clifford, Dickie,
Green.'-Houston, Taylor;'Fulton, Garden,
Tatlow/' "Hayward,   Murphy,, ,,Ellison,
Booth, > Helmcken," McPnlllips;' Rogers,
Smith,, Hunter,'McBride,'-and Mounce-^
19.7 To these may be addei| Smith. Cur-
_tiS-and,E.  O.  Bmltli  of the Old, Martin
-party, and Neill and Ha#$hornth,waIte,
independents. The .VictoriiJvacancy will
"go, so hard against the __artinites that
they ,will never get over the shock,'' and
thus the figures will stand: For,the govr
ernment,  14;   against the government,
24.'.,This is even conceding for the moment that Mr. Brown will be "returned
in,New Westminster.   It will be noticed
that" the list as given includes Joseph
Hunter,and Mr.' Mourice, both of whom
are in a sense employees of*Mr, Dunar
muir, and are doubtless counted on as
sure supporters of the 'government^ Mr.
Hunter, however, "has openly expressed
himself as being opposed tothe Martln-
Dunsmuir   combination, ' and   as   preferring to resign his Cariboo seat rather
than ^accept any ■ responsibility _In the
matter.   Mr. Mounce, too^is believed to
be a man of sufficient independence of
character to act as his.Intelligence directs.   How, in the face of these things,
Mr. Wells can figure out a government
majority passes comprehension, except
on the one ground that there are none
so blind as those who won't see."  ,

R. S. Lennie has served a notice of
appeal in the rather celebrated case*"of
Fawcett vs. the C. P. R. railway. This
was an action for damages brought
against the railway company by the par-
ents'of the late' bonductor Fawcett, who
died from the effects of injuries received
at the C. P. R. siding at Robson in October,' 1899.
The case came on for trial,in this
city before justice'Irving, who refused
to allow it to go to the jury after the
case for the plaintiff hau been presented,
upon the finding that the plaintiff was
the author of his own injury by reason
of-his not having examined the running gear of his train and discovered
a defect in the brake wheel, which it
was admitted was the cause of the accident. Mr. Justice Irving held that the
deceased was required to do this under
the rules of the company. An appeal
was .taken from this decision to the full
court but the decision of the trial judge
was upheld. The appeal is**now to be
carried to the Supreme Court-of Canada. The issue to.be determined by the
supreme court, is merely whether "justice Irving was right In refusing to allow the case to go to the jury, and the
allowing of the appeal would mean that
the-plaintiff would be entitled to a new
trial. -     - ,   '
' The case is of interest to trainmen
for the ^reason that the < ruling of justice .Irving virtually* amounts to a judicial, interpretation ^of the rules which
the' railway company dssubs for the
guidance of .its \conductois, which has
also been sustained by the highest courts'
ofs the province.

Stratton Joined the Union. ~
Mr. Stratton is the most eccentric man
'In the west, and the way'in which he
joined the, Carpenters' Union illustrates
this.  Recently he went to hfs new palatial home on Nevada avenue, in Colorado
Springs, to see how work was progressing.   Tim Murphy was there with his
•force of workmen, for he was boss of
.the job.   Stratton walked'|n and looked around.   Then he suddenly feU intq
a yage at the apparent slowness of the.
work.,  _fe absolutely' cussed out the
whole shooting match and told them all
to  get out of   his  place, fand  "that
mighty quick;" he'did not want to see
their faces, ever again.''   "With that he
called  Murphy  aside,   arid   Tim   "W9J9
laughing within himself, .for he. fcne'w
the ways of the b}g mine owner,
■•Tira," he bawled out, "you and me
can do more work than a hundred of
these blacksmiths." Then he skinned oflf
his coat and started to go to work,
"Where  is your card, %._.?" ask-ed
Murphy _ i.1. Per-pusi**,       •    -   *,
* "eard be hanged !*' rejoined Stratton,
''I, don't need a eard.'-'
"But this is a union job^Win, and if
Yf.\ %,m got one. <?{ them* it's all off.
We .aj*.'t W/qrlf with, nen-i-nien men here
and you are not a union m?m.«
"TJiafs so, Tim," rejoined StrattflB,
"I guesg you'd better- .all \ha bays Poland finish the job, And, Tim, put my
name in at the next meeting of the
"Do you mean it, Win?" asked Murphy.
< ''Ves, let her go in, if the boys Will
stand for it. I don'f want any man
ever to ask me for a card. If he does
I want to be able to show it to him. _»hey
didn't have unions jn mv day, bu.t tb.y

When the union held its next meeting
Murphy put Stratton's name in and the
millionaire mine pwner was duly elected, and has since been carrying I)i_

not, as reported at' the Coast, recommended the abolition of the 5 per cent
royalty on the gold output, but simply
a change in-the method of collection,
or, in other1 words, the adoption of an
export tax. He would not discuss the
matter this morning, but preferred that
any statements,to be made should come
from the government.. Referring to the
present status and future of the Yukon,
the governof said: "As a proof that the
country is not worked out, some $16,-
000,000 of gold was exported this year
before the 1st Q? August, The total output for the season* will be very large
and in ruy opintonT-'would have reached
the 185,000,000 mark if water had been
available. The reason for the lack of
water was not that the season was drier
than usual, but the faet is that the timber cut from off the'coulees causes the
water to. rush off early in'the spring,
instead of drying up gradually. As to
the future of the Klondike, the country has lots of alluvial gold, and it is
good for many years yet. Certain elatax
