Virgiinia City, March 3o.-The indica tions point to considerable mining activity in this section during the season of i903. R. A. \'ickers, the cditor of the Alder (iulch l'iTes, in discussing the prospect, said: "The prospects for the future of Virginia City are brighter this spring than at any period sinlc tile plineer days of old Alder Gulch. The mining interestsb are looking tiup, andl there will he a large numbnlaer of miners employed in the district as soon as spring opens well. The Kearsarge at Sutmmit is employing in the neighborhood of I.:5 men all told, including those en gagel inl getiting out timbers and cord wood. It is diflicult to tell just how the mine is looking as the company is a con servative one, and will not give out any thing for publication, but it is known that they are taking out some high grade ore, as regular shipments of bullion are made. It is said there is a large body of low grade ore at the 2oo, and that the company intend building large reduction works this season. "The Elling estate is making prepara tions to work the Easton and Pacific mines as soon as the snow goes off sufficiently to enable them to start. About 30 miners will be employed this summer, and it is the intention to run the mine and cyanide plant continuously after the start is made. "There are a number of other properties working from two to ten imen each, the Blamboo Chief, Alameda, havojo, St. Joln, Silver Bell, Heart Solo, Shenandoah, IIt4n bug, Fairweather, Shafter and several others I do not call to mind. "Placer maining will commence next month and altogether there will be from 3,o to 400 men employed in and around Virginia during the coming summer. Everything considered, the old camp is doing very well, thank you." HENRY REFUTES THE ATTACK Answers Duncan on the Infallibility of the Holy Bible. The Rev. Alfred II. Henry delivered an eloquent defense of the bible last night in answer to a sermon delivered last w4ok by Lewis Duncan, arguing that it is a Dok by the hand of man and therefore not nec essarily inspired. The Rev. Henry took his text from the second verse of the 138th chapter of Psalms, "Thy hast magnified Thy word above all Thy name." The congregation at the Mountain View church was hell to constant attention by the masterly way in which Mr. Henry met the attack of Mr. Duncan, and criticised ,him for assaulting the fundamentals of Christianity from the position which he occupies as a Christian teache.. corted to the Liberal Arts building. John M. Thurston of the national committee will be president of the day, and Presi dent Francis will extend a greeting to representatives of the foreign govern E. R.

FILIPINO VERSIONS OF THE HOLY BOOK A Catholic Priest Attacks Them as Unfit for Distribution. ab ASSOCIATED PRESS. New York, March 3o.-Father O'Brien Pardow, preaching int St. Patrick's cathe dral on "The Catholic Church and the Bible," attacked the distribution of bibles in the Philippines. "It is looked upon as a great boon to the Filipinos," he said, "that after we have rid them of Spain's rule of superstition, we are going to give them the 'open bible' and are shipping them carloads of this quick thrown together translations. Everybody knows that persons who have never had more than a year or two's acquaintance with this almost unknown language are in capable of giving expression in it to God's word as should be done. I suppose these bibles will take along with them Ameri ca's heirloom, the institution and increase of divorce unknown as yet to these peo ple." POSTMASTER IS UNABLE TO GO OUTSIDE RULES Irvin Cannot Give Mrs. Romans6n a Position, as the Civil Service Gov erns All Appointments. Mrs. Lottie Romanson of this city, who rtcently submitted a petition to Post master Irvin, signed by a number of prominent citizens, requesting that she be given a position as general delivery clerk in the postoffice, has received a reply from Mr. Irvin. Mr. Irvin's letter was to the effect that there was no position open for a lady in the office, and if there were the civil service rules would compel him to con sider other ladies on the eligible list in preference to a new applicant. He states that a "pull" is of no use in the service, and every one has to be appoint ed according to the rules of the civil cers ice, regardless of personal opinion or desire on the part of the postmaster. En closed in the letter was a list of thirty five young women who have been on the eligible list, but have never been ap pointed. The objection to appointing them, he says, lies in the fact that they are not strong enough to handle the heavy mail sacks during the rush hours, as must be done by all mail clerks.

The meeting was marked by a unity of spirit and enthusiasm, which augurs well for the speedy building of the structure for which the Jews of Butte have long been hoping. It has been the one object above all others toward which Rabbi Weiss has worked hard since his arrival. Riots In Russia.

If rea sonable care is used, however, and Cham. berlain's Cough Remedy taken, all danger will he avoided. Among the tens of thou sands who have used this remedy for these diseases we have yet to learn of a single case having resulted in pneumonia, which shows conclusively that it is a certain pre ventive of that dangerous disease. It will cure a cold or an attack of the grip in less time than any other treatment. It is pleasant and safe to take. For sale by Paxson & Rockefeller, Newbro Drug Co., Christie & Leys, Newton Bros. FIRST AMERICAN TO GET THE SCHOLARSHIP Denver, March 30o.-There have been various opinions as to the practical value of the system of scholarships established by the late Cecil Rhodes. Light will soon be thrown upon the subject by the ac tual experience of the scholars, of whom the first have recently been appointed. The first American to take advantage of the munificence of the South African millionaire is Eugene II. l.hman. Mr. Lehman is a young man of 2-, a native of Colorado, and a l graduate of Yale.

The souvenir certificates, which are to go to contributors to the McKinley memo rial fund, are now being distributed, and are to be seen in one or more of the de partment stores in this city. The task of placing so large a number of these memen tos, without a serious expense to the Memorial association, has been solved, in a measure, by the officers of the associa tion through the generosity of the depart. anent stores of the country, they having al most without exception, volunteered to act as distributing, agents. This idea was suggested by the fact that no other single agency would reach so large a proportion of the population in the large centers. The certificate is a beau tiful work of art, on which it given an excellent reproduction of Mrs. McKinley's favorite likeness of her husband, together with a picture of the McKinley home in Canton and of the White House. T'he wording below the illustrations is as fol ,lows: "This certifies that has contributed to the fund for the erection of the National Memorial at Canton, Ohio., in honor of William McKinley." The workmanship and artistic effects are of the very highest order, the great house of Tiffany & Co., New York, being the de signers and manufacturers,. The supply in the hands of the stores is a portion of the first edition of the certificates, and is sent here to enable those who have not as yet contributed to do so. Parties who have already identified themselves with the movement will receive souvenirs direct from the office of the association or through local committees. Levee Cut.
