SANDON, B. C, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1897.
PRICE FIVE CENTS,
I ENGLISH SCIENTISTS.
Delighted With What- They Saw
Sometime ago the , Dominion government, the C. P. R. and other organizations of Canada gave a general invitation to "The British Association
for the advancement of science" to
visit Canada that a knowledge cf its
resources ;and capabilities might become thereby better known abroad.
The invitation was accepted and about
2,000 of their number came to Canada,
among the lot being some, 40 of the
most â noted scientists ,of the mother
country. Their visit, however, is un
der no special auspices, nor are they
committed to the making of any spec-
' ial reports on their return ; though it
is a certainty thnt through different
channels much light will be given f.
the British people in general on the
resources and capabilities in Â«enpral
Some of the number aro professors in
colleges, and, of course, their classes
will in various ways become great
gainers through" the visit. Others in
writing for the press and periodicals
will give the public the benefit of their
observations. As tho press of England, however, is not as much given to
interviewing as their confreres in Canada and the States, tho people will not
learn as much through that chann.el as
they otherwise would.
On reaching this province again the
company split into segments, but three
or lour taking in the Kootenay country. This section had with it as an
associate Dr. Dawson, of Ottawa/head
of the geological department at the
capital. The doctor is quite familiar
with mining in British Columbia., and
â well versed on the_-_mineral wealth of
the Kootenay country, so his sugges-
tions'to his comp .mons from time to
time wore of speeial interest.
The entire party reaching Sandon on
Wednesday, after having visited Boss-
land. Trail, Nelson, Kaslo and Whitewater, consisted of: C. Le Neve Poster,
Prof, in the Royal sehool of mines at
London, and expert geologist for the
British government, Mrs. Foster and
the Misses Foster; Prof. Cruikshank,
of London, one of the foremost chemists living, and Mrs. Cruikshank; Sir-
George Robertson, of London, one of
the-council of the Royal Geographical
society,-and. Dr. Dawson. They took
rooms at the Goodenough, and visited
the Ruth mine on Wednesday and the
Star concentrator on Thursday forenoon. 'Thoy were all delighted with
their 'observations here, boldly acknowledging that in the reports in the
press they had soon "the half had not
beentold.'" As the company came to
learn, the. public can easily undcr.-land
(hat they were quite as anxious to get
information from those around thsm
as they were to give it. They wee
astonished to find that with all our
mineral wealth our coin was for the
most part A merican production. ri hese
facts led them to the conclusion easily
that a home mint would be a good
thing for Canada. Sir George also conceded that the conclusion of the Bank
.0/ England to retain one-frth of its reserve in white nrotal would strengthen
!j;t-,C chances of bi-metalism, not only
-in England but in other countries, as
.mankind were great copyists and disposed to'follow leaders, and the Bank
IpfEngland wa a leading monetary insti-
â tution.He was also disposed to say that
ithere was not currency enough in the
â¢world for the commercial necessities ol
â¢the people, and if the necessities could
jiot be met in gold the'next best thing
->vas to make up the balance in silver.
After learning all they could of
vinining in this section, the party left
via '-t}. B.B-'-'for Revelstoke on Thurs-,
day, and we are of the opinion , that in
whatever observations they make at
any time on the resources of the Koo-
.tenay, Sandon will be a conspicuous
.â element and its mineral surroundings
will be referred to with more than
Road and Stage Route
'From Edmonton to the -...'
' \ The Great Canadian/ Development
- and Mining Company, contemplates a
â gigantic enterpriseâthe building of a
- won road from Edmonton to the
. gold fields. In this,work.the company
; has not only the hearty co-oporation
- and support of the Dominion govern-
, merit and the Canadian Pacific Rail-
â way, but it is backed by ample capital
â to push the work to completion. Capi-
â¢ talints of Ottawa, Montreal and Tpron-
to whose wealth is estimated at I mil-
. lions are back of the , scheme, the.
'.capitalia ready, the charter secured
and Mr. Powell has ,bi-<--ry-"',i'ppointed
manager of the enterprise.
The survey party started from Edmonton about the first of September
and will work all winter building
bridges, stables and stores. None but
good men employed will be allowed to go
with the surveyors 'lb" plan is to
build'one road bv the way of Lsiird
ri**er, one of the main branches of the
McKenzie river, and nnothor, by way
Pelly river, which is one of the head
waters of the Yukon.
Stables will be built so as to provide
passengers with relays of horses every
12 miles, thus enabling them to make
100 miles per day. On some portions
of the road it may be necessary to use
reindeer, and possibly dops will be used
in some of the higher altitudes up
Stores will be provided at frequent
intervals and will be well provisioned.
The company will give a man transportation and food for one year for
$500. The plan is to issue a certificate
on the coupon plan good at the stores
for food, which will bo negotiable.
Thcriatter feature it is thought will be
especially attractive, as the companies
now contracting to take men into the
diggings will not make the agreement
transferable. Under the new arrangements contemplated a traveller who
wishes to turn back need not lose his
entire investment, but may dispose
of his food certificate to the best advantage.
POLIGE COURT MEWS.
Acquainted Before, But Quarrelled As
A peculiar ense en me before Justice
Lilly on Monday last. Mrs. Essie Gibbons, who has been for some time stopping at the Hotel Vancouver laid an
information against John Parks, who
has been working at the lleco mine,for.
assult. Mrs. Gibbons says* she is a
widow and was acquainted with Parks
in'fact a lover of his in the States.
They subsequently came to "Rossiand
where they were lovers but quarrelled,
and he was bound over to keep the
peace. They met here again accidentally or otherwise, dsponent
saith not, and the amenities of yore,
wero a natural result, loving and
quarrelling. Mrs. Gibbons told the
court she did not want her lover, harshly dealt with, only bound over to keep
thepeace, and he was bonnd accordingly.

His contention was that the third attempt at kissing she kissed him.
He said it was ruleable in his country,
France, for a .nan to 'kiss the woman

thought such a rule might be good
enough in France, but it was not workable here and so fined defendant $10

FIVE FEET OF SOLID GALENi
A Big Strike on the Last Chance
Last July Mr. Tomlinson started his
third tunnel. It is located on the first
"hog-back," looking, from the Last
Chance cabins towards the American
Boy, about 700 feet on the lead across
and below the other workings. He cut
the lead hist Friday morning about 8(1
feet under ground and in 150 feet and
to tree a little every day slang, ''he
didn't find a thing." At the point cut
the lend is fully five feet in width, and
from wall to wall it is shipping ore,
carbonate goingabout 175 ounces and
solid galena running 246 ounces silver
and 69 per* cent le.ul. lie has turned
on the lr-ad and will now â run to get
undpr the breast No 2. This will give
him 400 feet of depth and wli^w he
raises te rnoet a winze already started
in No. 2. he will have an opening
through No.'l. No. 3 will be the main
working tunnel of the mine. He proposes to nnsh it ahead ind through it
work all the other claims on the lead.
Irr the bottom of the winze in No. 2
there is now IS inches of solid 'galena
running 214 ounces silver and 73 per
cent lead. There is little doubt that
this ore goes down and is waiting a
hundred feet below for No. 3 drift to
come, and claim it. Mr. Tomlinson
cannot sny that the new strike is on
same chute as the upper workings but
he will soon know. Should such prove
to *->e the'ease, another Payne is the
inevitable resul.". , ' ,
The fondest dreams were more than
realized on Wednesday this week, when
on pushing operations fl five foot vein
of solid galena was struck; which assays 240 oza. silver and 70 per cent,
lead:-, This is all the more significant

other promising mines arc on ths same
Holding Too Many Claims,
As a result of Mr. Carlyle's tramp
aruund the different sections of West
Kootenay. an Amendment, to tbe Mineral Act may be expected during the
next session of the Legislature, remarks the Nelson Tribune. -Througout
the entire district, but more' especially in outlying sections, he has observed
a tendency on the part of claim holders
to cheat the provision of the Mineral
Act dealing with the performance of
assessment work upon claims, Though
the present act is most liberal, in that
it admits of the recording of locations
before performing any development
work whatever, there is a disposition
on the part of claim owners to shrink
tho annual assessment falling due within the years following the location of
claims by a system of relocating. The
effect of this is that large areas arc
staked off and no work is performed
beyond tho driving of the stakes. In
one districtâTrout LakeâMr. Carlvle
came across one individual who was
holding 60 claims. These men are unable to do the necessary assessment
themselves, and by evading the spirit
of the act, they stand in the way of
those who are willing and able to do
the necessary development. The system naturally tends to retard all new
districts. To overcome the difficulty
Mr. Curly lo is of the opinion tha', the
Mineral Act should Do amended, so
that b"fore a location can be filed in
record office, the locator of a claim
should be required to perform $100
worth of work. As the opinion ofMr.U.
will no doubt have considerable weight
with the Minister.of Mines, some such
'amendment rr.ay be made to the Mineral Act next session, unless Mr. Curly le'can be. induced to change his mind

Important Legal Opinion.
A question touching the legality of
notices of improvement, en which the
issuance of crown grants are based,
was discus led in Mr. Justice Drake's
court on Wednesday. ' The opinion
handed down was to the effect that
whon a notice of intention to apply for
a certificate of improvement contains
the notice of application of more than
one mineral claim, the notice is ilk-gal.
The argument before the court on
Wednesday was on the rrv.tion of the
"Contact and Excelsior" mineral
claims for leave to isisuc wait. The
Excelsior people, applied for a certificate of improvement on which to obtain a Crown grant, but-on account of
the illegality of the notice as it appeared in the Gazette, the judge allowed
the ''Contact" owners to bring' their*
motion for leave to issue writ.

coming to the bridge he was seized
from behind and a gun shoved in hia
face. He was unable to resist and his
two ass-iilants neatly cut out his
pocket and decamped. Grant Thor-
burn and Al. McDonald started in pursuit of the footpads as soon as the
news reached Silvertonj ,but as Weller
could not identify the robbers' and as
the pursuers had no clue to work upon

consisted' of a watch, three plugs of

For something like a year and
a half P. Ananace' and A. D. Wil-
iams had been residents of this town,
Anance doing one thing and another
in the interval. Williams was in thr
broker-tge and agencj business in partnership with J. K. Leighton, of Nanai-
mo, t us province. Some thought Williams was making a little money in his
business, butnosne knew much about
the affairs of one or the other. Some
six months ago, however, they formed
a partnership and erectod and fitted
up the Filbert hot*-* '- *"" ' tiat-

9 o'clock Friday night last they disposed of the hotel, and put the price

well able to stand their losses.
Frinn the way things are turning out,
this defrauding was contemplated for

BANK OF ENGLAND.
A Director Replies To The Times
London, Sept., 13. Mr. Henry Gren-
fell, a director of the Bank of England
and a. former governor, has a letter in
the Times trris morning in the course
of which he asks : "As a bi-metallist
and as one ol the senior members of
the bank court, I think I have a right
to ask, on what grounds the writer of
the article entitled "A Remo istrance."
in your Saturday's issue, ifiakes his
assertion that the hank has decided to
hold a fifth of its reserve in silver. Had
the bank done so, its action weuld
have been strictly in accord with the
bank act of 1844 and equally in accordance with the action taken in 1881 by
the president, What the bank did in
1881 was to assure the treasury that
the bank would always be open to the
purchase of silver on condition of the
return of mints of other countries to
such rules as would ensure certainty
to conversion of gold into silver and of
silver into gold. Bi-metallists declare
that the effect of a - double standard
in France alone was that the two
metals did exchange throughout the
world at a legal ratio, or with such
flight variations as might, in consideration of this great subject, be neglected.
There is no ground for saying that any
one connected with the bank has, officially gone beyond the position. Indeed
[ doubt if any opinion has been recorded, or any determination come to, at
all. ' Your correspondent's whole letter
seems founded on a si^po.-iition of
what may, or may not, have arisen in
the necessity for preliminary discussions with regard to the watering of
the bank's reserve with silver on the
condition mentioned in 1881. If I
am not mistaken the very persons who
deprecate this dilution, have always
been most desirous of much greater
dilution of the issue of pound notes,
on a more or less fiduciary basis. I
may conclude.by'saying, that the ex-
pression/'Certain Americans' is scarcely a fitting description of the commissioners now officially charged by.
their government for their difficult
arduous task.' .

correspondent of a morning paper
wires: Agitation for the retirement
of Mr. Tarte from the cabinet is becoming so widespread it is doubtful if
Premier Laurier can ignore it much
longer. A year ago it would have been
considered a safe venture to wager that
the minister of public works would remain in office as long as any of his
colleagues. To-day political wiseacres
in both parties are speculating as to
tha time and manner of his going.
The outspoken demand of the independent portion of the government press
for the removal of this minister is a
significant development, and is merely
.thes.*roke shows a smouldering fire
beneath. Before such a public step
was taken it is absolutely certain that
many confidential representations were
made to the premier on the subject.
That he has delayed action till patience
had ceased to be a virtu", or that he
has discouraged agitation, must be responsible for the publicity that Iras recently been given to the wiovemerrf
There is abundant proof that Mr.
Tarte has for many months been aware
of the mine over which ho stands.
Last session he declared in parliament when discussing the Drummond
county deal, (hat he was being under
mined. Hdsaid:, "I know the bottom of the whole conspiracy against
myself," and he added, turning to the
Liberals behind him: "Every man
has his enemies, sometimes even irr
his own camp," Such a scene was not
acted without reason, and it was done
as a check to the growing opposition
to the suspected minister.
Mr. Tarte some time since announced
a trip to Europe. He was to meet hss
chief at Rome and together they were
to bow before the throne of St. Peter.
No ordinary reason could turn a; devotee from such a ^purpose, but the
pilgrimage was cancelled and the minister of public works spent hit summer

each representative covers three or
for times that number and a'â¢territorry
/.large enough-for a fair sized province.
Tlie ; first thing we. should have is "a
,: .proper redistribution bill on something
......like' the basis of population â¢â¢â .â 'â and the
next thing is a full consideration, of tlie
.';. government's financial policy.
It does/not require- an ounce of dis-'
'.'.. cretion to show tlie late heavy 'expend-.'
.'.;'.jture on government buildings' xas not
:/-'onlyâ .'â â 'â¢'â ; unwarranted 'â ';,but . manifestly,
â unjust, to : the country. .Victoria, for
â '; instance, is not at all convenient for
-. the capital, and such; an expenditure
on buildingsthere.is.onl}'. muzzling the
. country, by brute.foiceâthe west hav-
;. ing.a representation acquiescing in the
the expenditure, to which it is hot entitled. If we had a year or two
/ hence . a proper representation, that
.representation would. scarcely .be free
.â ".in looking at .the province's1 interest: in
locating the seat of government else-
. where;; because of the heavy expend-
'; iture that is now irrevocable. '. A government friendly to. the.,country -at
large would have given-the country
proper., representation before . it
-was. saddled with such/ .a /burdenâ'
, that the/ people in the selection of the
capital, and judicious expenditures
thereon, might have spoken- for themselves.. , Then again, the,machine appears to be run- on;the aristocracy
basisâ"the lords of the soil consum-
; ing the loaves and; the fishes/'while the
masses are paying the piper. What
we want more particularly to say is
that the outlying districts, are.in no
respect getting a reasonable, expenditure of money in proportion 'to-their
' taxation. The rural parts are putting
â¢up the revenues that are expended on
the aristocracy. . . ,,
In oiir. issue of last week we showed
-, how* revenues ' were extorted from the
. people of this town on infraction of
the health,regulations, and the government failed to correct its own infractionsâleaving them also as legacies to
the common taxpayers, and so on
along the'line. To us it is a matter
ot supreme indifference which party is
in or out, if we only have proper government ; and; while sympathy is with
the opposition, merely, because the
feeling is that the government is heedless of the requirements of the people,
we, at least, would like the opposition
to express themselves fully on the government's weaknesses, and show, the
public in clear lines how they would
correct them. Let us ,have clearness
on this matter, and that as soon as
possible. --It. is but little consolation
to he told that bur family physician is
inefficient unless we are shown where
we can find one ,who will be' an nn-j
jprovement' In the present case the
issue should not turn on political lines,
but wholly and; Solely on a distinct
outline of tlie government's mal administration, and the remedies for
BETTER, GOVERNMENT. â
The trend of politics . ahd: the wiles
of politicians in'Canada must be
amusing' to those.-'; who give the matter
attention. One-half -the cries .against
.governments by oppositions are, merely
to'let the latter'have the handling of
the loaves and fishes., None; can deny
that government in Canada, Federal
as well as Provincial,^ requires remodeling in the interest of. the common
taxpayer; and though oppositions'/;' are
profuse,in their promises, to catch, suffering humanity before elections; on
trial like Bob Acres,; they allow their'
courage to doze but ,;at their, fingers'
ends, lest; they should lose' some, patronage for their hungry followers. â /. â¢
â ' In the, late,: Federal elections, the
opposition crieS /were --Free. Trade,
abolition of the senate,- reduced officials., in numbers /and salaries,- greater
economy all around, and 110 separate,
schools.for Manitoba. 'It is ' true that
a change in the tarifl has been made,
that is in the , right'direction, Init it is
far from what -was promised, Free
Trade, and the declaration in Great
Britain"that; Canada has the-.right to
make 'its own commerciartreaties,/is
in no respect the outgrowth of the
altered tarifl. .It"'is. only: one, expression on a point of constitutional law
that, was' never before brought- up.
We hear nothing now about theaboli-,
tidn'of. the 'senate, and. reduced officials, . 'except in. / the ..turning- out of
Tories aud their being replaced by
Grits. While the principle'of separate schools is not forced oh Manitoba,
they are there in "fact. /just the other
day Greenway imported a Roman
Catholic school inspector from' .Que-,
.bee, and for what? â surely, not .to in-,
spect ordinary public schools .as ,:.th'e.
country is full of- nien capable' Of- performing such duties."â ',,;â No; but:to oversee Catholic schools which ; are there
in fact, if not in:theory. -, This,is the
end of the boasted "no surrender." r
Canada is oyergoverned, .over offic-
ialed and overtaxed .^lr/the interest of
an aristocracy., and what the' .country
wants is: opposition members .in ' the'
Houses . with : brains and, principle,
grounded in a conviction as to public,

more for theix money than strut around

THE LARDEAU BONANZA.
The'Assay Is Said To Have Given Remarkable Results.
D. W. McVicar during the past week
has been displaying some' samples of
ore from the Lardeau district and an
assay certificate which have excited
considerable comment. The ore is
from the 01 ive May, Little Fred and
three other claims owned by. Lade
brothers and Arthur Gunn and the assay certificate gives a-' value of 148J-
purices in gold. Calculated at Â§20 per
ounce, the result shown is $2,960 per
ton. The ore shows iron pyrites and
graphic tellurium and according to
the statement of Mr. McVicar it was
taken from an 8-foot ledge. He does
not know the width pi4 the pay streak.
There arc three different ledges on the
group and were discovered about one
month ago. Two tons havebeen shipped to the Nelson smelter for testing
and a large sample has been placed on
exhibition in the Bank of Britisli
Columbia. Mr. McVicar states that
the ore is identical with that taken
from Boulder creek.

Make an Attack
Hazelton, Pa., Sept. 10.âThe strike
reached a terrible crisis on' the out
skirts of Latimer, to-day when a band
of deputy-sheriffs firired into an infuriated mob of miners.' The men fell
like so many sheep and the excitement
since has been so intense that no accurate figures of the number who were
wounded can be obtained. Reports
ran from 15 to 20 killed and 40 wounded. Many of the latter will die.
One mar. who reached the scene tonight counted 13 corpses. Four others
' of the dead lie in' the mountains bc-
' tween Latimer and Harleigh., Those
who were not injured carried their dead
and wounded friends into the ' woods.
Three bodies were found to-night on
the, road near Latuner. The strikers
left Hazleton at 2 30 p. m., announcing
their intcntion'to go to Latimer. As
soon as this became known a band of
deputies got on a trolley cur and went
across the mountain to tho scenei
where the conflict followed. After
reaching Latimer they left the oar and
formed into three companies.
T1IEY ATTACKED THE SHERIFF.
They drew up in line at tho edge of
.the village, with a fence as a line of
houses in their rear. Sheriff Martin
was in command, and he walked up
and down in the front of the line until
the strikers appeared. They were seen
coming across the ridge and Sheriff
/Martin went out to meet them. The
' men drew up sullenly and listened in
â silence until he had once more read
the riot act. This finished a low muttering arose among the foreigners, and
there, was a slight movement forward,
and in a determined tone fori ade them
to advanee. Someone struck the Sheriff, and the next moment there was a
- command issued to tho deputies to
fire. The guns of the deputies instantly belched forth a terrible volley, and
the report seemed to shake the very
mountain and a cry of dismay went up
from' the people. The strikers were
entirely taken by surprise, and as the
men toppled and fell over each other
those who remained unhurt stampeded.
The men went down beforo the storm
of bullets like tenpins, and the groans
of the"dying and of the wounded filled

rare exceptions,, "'maKc the worse appear the better reason.". It throws vice
on the glass till the world learns to

it takes its stand for truth and justice.
The proportion of false sheets and soulless columns is daily growing less. The
power of the press as an exponent of

even the fiercest despots are obliged to

The excitement that followed was

they went to the aid of the unfortunates whom they had brought down.

SHERIFF MARTIN TELLS HIS STORY.
Wilkesbarry, Pa. Sept. 10âSheriff
Martin, who ordered the deputies to
â¢ fire on the mob at Hazelton, arrived
here on the 7 o'clock train this evening. He was cool'and collected. The
sheriff was at first reluctant to say
whether he had given the command to
fire, but atter-vards admitted that he
had. He saia: "The trouble began
jit 4 p. m. I niet the marching column,
halted it and read the proclamation,
The miners refused to pay any attention and started to resume their march
when I called on the leader to stop.
He ignored my order. I thenattempt-
ed to arrest him. The strikers closed
in on me, knocking mc down and
tramplingÂ»on me. I called on my deputies to aid me and they did so, but
_they were unable to accomplish much.
â¢J-realized that something should be
..danÂ« fl.t once or I would be killed.
"1 .called to the deputies to discharge
-.itheir firearms into the air over tho
I beads of the strikers, as it might prob-
: ably frighten them. It was done at
, once, but it had no effect whatever on
1 the infuriated foreigners, who used me
â¢jso much the rougher nnd became fiercer
â *uid fiercer, and more like wild beasts
(Chan human beings.
THE FATAL ORDER.
"The strikers than made a still bolder, move and endeavored to surround
my entire force, of deputies. I fully
realized that the foreigners were a
desperate lot and valued my life at a
very little figure. I also saw that par.
lcying with such 11 gang of infuriated
men was entirely out of the question,
as they were too excited to listen to
reason and that myself and deputies
would be killed if wc were not rescued,
or if we did not defend ourselves. 1
then called upon the deputies to fire if
.they must protect their lives or pro-
-perty that they had been sent to guard
â¢from being demoralized. I bated to
â¢ give tho command to shoot and am
\ awful sorry that I was compelled to do
. so, but I was there to do my duty and I
.-did it as best I knew how and as
_aÂ»y conscience dictated."
When I arrived on this coast, in
1854, the Indians generally made and
used implements of stone such as arrow and spear points, knives, adzes,
axes, and continued to make and use'
them 'foryenrs after that. The material they used was chert, jade, a black
and gray slate, and a dark and gray
basalt. I think I may have seen the
process of .making these articles when
I first came here, hut'am not certain.
However, T know pretty well how they
were made, at least, by tho Indians inhabiting this island. A- black bear
skin was spread on the ground with
the h-iir side down ; tlien a flake of
chert, or jndc, or of basalt; first roughed
out by striking two pieces together,
was held on the bear's skin between
the fingers and chipped into shape
with another stone, or a bone, by gradual pressure. In this way they soon
formed very perfect arrowheads, some
having points as sharp as a needle.
The base of the weapon was worked
out by simple pressure, then inserted
in the cleft shaft, and securely held in
its place with pitch, asptialtum, or a
glue made of fins of the halibut. The
larger spearheads were usually made
of slate, split into flakes, worked out,
and then rubbed until polished. Their
adzes and axes were made of chert,
jnde, or basalt, and were of various
shapes 'and sizes. Some of them were
finely finished and polished, while
others were rough and ill-formed. One
class of them were evidently made to
br-i used by holding in the hand, but
the great m jority of them had handles
of some description.âThe Antiquarian."
San Francisco, Sept.âThe Examiner
prints an extra edition containing the
following news from Dawson City :
Otter Point, B. C, Sept. 10.â-Tbe
steamer Cleveland has arrived from St..
Michaels, bringing with her from tho
Yukon gold fields a story of distress
and disaster. The winter has'set in at
Dawson City and the two great stores
of tho place have elosed their doors,
for they have nothi-ig to sell. Those'
who have been seeking gold now must
seek for food or starve. There can lie
no question but that famine threatens.
The first signs ol winter arc apparent on the Yukon river, which is beginning to freeze and in a f- w weeks
will be closed. Enormoun prices are
now being paid for food at'Dawson,
and it is impossible that more than
four vessels with provisions can reach
Dawson before the river is a mass of
ice. On the Cleveland are 38 passengers, who have come from^Dawson.
If one were to believe the miners'
stories, he would say the treasure-ship
in which they come carries $5,000,000.
Captain Hall, master of the Cleveland,
says that he has $100,000 in' his safe.
The purser believes that he'enri account
for $150,000 on hoard.

Skagway Pass Impossible,
The Ala.Â«ka Miner, of Juneau, says :
the impossibility of crossing the range
of way of the Skagway pass is made
more evident every day. With horses
by the hundred and every facility'
which ample means can furnish, a
blockade of the worst kind exists here.
At a conservative estimate there are
5,000 to 6,000 men crowding each othclover the trail, until a point is reached
beyond which they cannot go. Last
week a miners' meeting decided to
stop all travel over this pass, by force
if necessary, until a road was made
through it. From all we can learn,
not more than a dozen with thoir sut-
fits have yet succeded in getting
through. That there will be a great
deal of suffering there can be no doubt.
Many men have already abandoned
their original intention of taking in a
large outfit, such is their anxiety to
to reach the Et Dorado. These men
will regret when it is too late. We
noticed very few on the trail who wero
prepared to make a winter journey.
There is a vast difference between a
winter outfit and one adapted to summer travel, and there will be a rude
awakening, we fear, to many who will
not be advised.
The Ruling Spirit.
W. P. Herbert, until recently in the
employ of a Trail merchant, was arrested in this city on Sunday hist, on
information received from Officer'Devil], on the charge of having entered
chcGks on the Bank of British North
America while having no funds on deposit. It is alleged that Herbert presented a number of checks to different
persons in Trail, always after banking
hours, asking the accommodation on
the fact that the bank was elosed and
he could not get the money that day.
When the checks were presented for
payment there were no funds with
which to pay them. After issuing the
chocks Herbert left Trail for Nelson,
where he was traced by the police. He
was taken back to Trail for a hearing,
by Officer W. J. Devitt. The penalty
for the crime, if proved against the
accused, is not less than three years
imprisonment. Herbert was formerly
an employee of a Nelson business

Severe Headache Cured.
Dear Sirs,âBeing troubled with a
severe headache I was advised by a
friend to try Laxa Liver Pills. I misused half a bottle, and have not since
suffered from'the..complaint'.' They
seem to be a perfect cure.
It is oven not beyond the limits Of
possibility that France, the most pro.
tectionist of European countries,should
enter into improved trade relations
with Canada, says an - American Exchange. Sir Wilfrid Laurier's visit to
France aroused much interest^" and he
was extremely well received by all parties. The imagination of the French
was touches,us well as their pride,by the
fact that a few thousand colonists were
handed over to England as subjects,
they had maintained their religion and
their language, and one of them now
visited Prance as the Prime Minister of
the Dominion which she had originally
created. â The situation was certainly
striking; and Sir Wilfrid Laurier did
not hesitate to suggest to the ' French
Minister of Finance at a public, ban
quet the possibility of ' establishing
better trade relations with the Canadian Government. According to the
Paris Temps, this suggestion ought to
he heartily accepted., Wa cannot expect much from the French in the way
of tariff reductions but Sir Wilfrid
Laurier's visit has unquestionably had
a good deal of effect, which will be increased should other countries respond
to the liberal policy of Canada.'' '

"Mr. Robins, I understand?
"Yes, I am Mr. Robins."
"You keep a trap, I believe?.
, "That is so."
"Have you a license for it?

The Vnliw of Salt
Common salt ground to a fine powder
will remove the stain, of hard-boiled
eggs from silver spoons quicker than
anything else. Coarse salt, however,
will scratoh them. A little salt will
remove tihe stain of tea from oups or
of vinegar from table linen.
Sa.lt and water will clean willow or
rattan furniture and wll keep matting
from turning yellow, as it will If wiped
orf with clear water. After sweeping
a carpet which is somewhat faded,
scatter coarse, daw$Â» table salt over it,
and brush it vlgyvtfoosly.- A'fresh supply of dust mssiv be extracted from tihe
carpet in this way and the faded colore
will be perceptibly brightened. A handful of salt aided to'a tu.bful of waiter,
in whioh colored cambric , and other
cottons ure soaked before they are
washed, will prevent the colors running.' Rinse the goods in salted water
and dry them as rapidly as possible.
Do ..not. use" too much salt, .however, as

dirt coming out as well as the color.â

to use only small patterned matei'iais

The first memtion of the Huns In
history is in China, B.C. 210. They
ctmquered that country and were afterward driven out by the Celestials
and marched clear across Asia, penetrating the country now known as
Hungary, in 376 A.D. For a time th\?y
threatened to overrun the whole of the
continent, but were defeated in the
heart of France and driven back to
the banks of the Danube.

A. man to endure
SHU "-'ie haidships of a
"farmei's life, must be
robuÂ°t physically at the outset, and if he
would live a long life, always keep a watchful eve upon his health. He .should remember that it is the apparently tiifling
disorders that eventually make the big diseases. It does, not do for a hard working
man to neglect bilious attacks or spells of
indigestion. If he does, he will soon find
himself flat on his back with malaria or
crippled with rheumatism. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery is the best of all
medicines for hard woiking men and women. It makes the appetite keen and
hearty, the digestion perfect, the liver active, the blood puie and rich with the life-
giving elements of the food, and the nerves
strong and steady. It builds firm muscles
aud solid flesh. It is the greatest of all
blood-makers and purifiers. It cures malarial troubles and ilieumatism. It is an unfailing cure for biliousness and.indigestion.
An honest dealer will not try to substitute
some inferior prepaiation for the sake of a
little additional piofit.
