FRIDAY.,..JUNE 24,18*7 ■ ININU I.KOITIMAT*. Many people do great injustice to the investor in miniDg properties or pros pects when they call him a “gambler ” or “speculator.” There is a large ele ment of chance in mining, bat that ele ment exists in a greater or less degree in almost every one of the occupations called legitimate. Speaking of the chances one takes in making an invest ment, an exchange trnthfnlly remarks: The miller lays in a big stock of wheat in the hope that the price of flour will advance while he is grinding it. The wholesale grocery merchant buys a large stock of sugar when it is cheap and stores it away in anticipation of an in crease in market value. The clothing merchant purchases a large invoice of overcoats in the hope and belief that the Winter will be long. All of these are speculators in their various ways. The miller may find the price of flour, when he comes to sell, lower than it was when be bought his wheat. The grocer may be caught with a large stock of sugar on hand when there is an unusually good crop of cane. The Winter may be short, and the clothing merchant may have to sell his overcoats at a loss. They take the chances of making or losing money. The mine-owner also takes chances. He has put his money into a piece of prop erty which may or may not develop a crop of precious metal. If it does, the chances are that his reward will be much greater than it would have been had he invested his capital in any other enter prise. The man who buys a piece of property with the intention of digging in it for gold and silver is no more a “gambler” than the man who cultivates the soil in the hope that it will bring forth a good crop of grain. Mining is as logitimate as any other business enter prise.—Mining and Scientific Press. IT C1N BE DONE. A long time ago tie query was pro pounded: “Can the Ethiopian change hiB skin, or the leopard his spots ? ” We are not well up as to the speckled beau ties, but there is evidence in Sacramento upon which an affirmative answer to the first proposition can be based. A colored man named Antone Metoyer has been employed at the railroad works in this city for some time, and his steadiness and industry has .caused him to be es teemed by those acquainted with him. Seven or eight months ago his skin was black, but it commenced to turn white, and now his body, arms, legs and neck are as white as those of any Caucasian. The original color is now only upon his face, extending back of the ears, just beneath the chin, and across the upper portion of the forehead, making him ap pear to be wearing a close fitting black or dark brown mask. On the chin and nose the dark color is beginning to wear away, and he thinks in a few weeks he will be perfectly white. As he is a good, big man, and it has only taken seven or eight months to do so much for him, it probably will not be many pay days before the paymaster will require some one to identify him. His hair and whiskers are black and curly. Medical men have taken much interest in his case, and attribute the change in com plexion to the effect upon his system of working constantly with potash and other material used in washing greasy waste. He has been advised that it may be dangerous for him to continue under this influence, but he declares that he will stay until the process he is under going is completed, if it kills him.— Record Union. The Washington Capital says: An old gentleman appeared in the Patent Olfiue the other day and wanted to know why an application for a patent on an at tachment to a milling machine he had filed had not been granted. He was shown a patent covering the identical improvements he claimed, granted some ten years since. The old inventor gazed at the drawings of the patent in a dazed way and then said: “I worked on that invention for ten years every night, and jnsb as I thought I had accomplished the aim of my life I find another man has done it years ago.” Tears filled the old man’s eyes as he walked out of the room the picture of despair. Daily 8. F. Report: The telegraph gives the somewhat suggestive informa tion that Cleveland dines with his mother-in-law every day, and that as it is getting too hot for him in Washing ton he probably will take refuge in the mountains of West Virginia. If these two facts have a connection it is easy to see that Mrs. Folsom is a very im portant person in the United States. Mothers-in-law in general have been discussed by every writer of alleged wit in the country, but no one has ever yet written of the influenoe and power of a President’s mother-in-law. *'Truthful Jeeinea.” We like to dwell upon solid facts.

WINFIELD SIOTT STABBED BY E. 3. LEVY, A GAMBLES. Forbidding Stoves in Railroad Cars. MACKAY REPORTED EAGER FOR A COMBINATION. The Arrest of Three Supposed Train Bobbers. A Fmrfnl Wreck. Havre de Grace, Md., June 21.— This village was the scene of a terrible disaster at t) o’clock this afternoon. The Philadelphia, Wilmington & Baltimore depot, and the track for sev eral hundred yards presents a horri ble picture. The express due here at 5:58 had left the station and run but a few yards, when it was met by the Congressional express from Washing ton, running at a high rate of speed, and a fearful wreck ensued. The fast express struck the baggage car of the south-bound train just as it crossed the switch below the depot and crashed into the parlor cars behind, overturning and demolishing two ol tnem. JNo one on ine norm-oounu train was hurt, but the south-bound train of six cars was full of passengers and nearly all were more or less in jured, and Alexander Grantrom of Washington, D. C., was instantly killed. forbidding: Stoves In Cara. New York, June 21.—The bill ex cluding coal stoves from passenger cars on railroads in this State has now become a law. After May 1 next it will be unlawful for any company to heat passenger cars on other than mixed trains by any stove or furnace kept inside of the cars or suspended therefrom, except in case of acci dent or other emergency. In cars al ready supplied with apparatus for using heat drawn from the locomo tive, the old stoves may be used when the car is standing still. Stoves of a pattern approved by the Railroad Commissioners may be used for cooking in dining-room cars. The law does not apply to roads less than 50 miles long. The penalty is $1,000. ▲ Club Man Stabbed. Richmond, \a., June 21.—Club circles are discussing the stabbing of a well-known club man, Winfield Scott, by E. G. Levy, a gambler, in a dis orderly house kept by Minnie Hub bard. Scott and the woman were talking when Levy entered the house. The woman went out of the room and met Levy and hot words ensued. Levy struck the woman, and Scott in terceded. Levy stabbed him several times in the neck and face. Levy fled. Scott was taken to the hospital, where he lies in a critical condition, one cut having penetrated a small artery in the neck. The woman Hub bard is known from New York to New Orleans. Mack ay Reported to be Kager lor a Combination. New York, June 21.—The World says: Bonanza Mackay’s friends say that he will be back here from the west in a day or two. It was rumored in Wall street yesterday that after con ferring with the officials of the various telegraph companies in this city he will sail for Europe. As the story goes, some sort of telegraph pooling arrangement is to be fixed up which will result in an advance of rates. Gould, Field, Sage and Garrett, it is alleged, will talk over telegraph mat ters with Mackay. Anti-Ueriunn Feeling. Paris, June 21.—The Paris news papers express indignation over the sentences decreed at Leipsic against the Alsatian members of the Patriotic League, convicted of high treason for assisting in the agitation to keep alive the anti-annexation feeling in Alsace Lorraine. The members of the league signed an appeal to President Urevy, begging him to intervene for the release of Koechlon. It is not thought prob able that Urevy will accede. Worse tbnn First Ke|»orteii. Vienna, June 21.—Later particulars show that the recent ferry accident at Paks, on the Danube river, was much worse than at first reported. The boat was fearfully overcrowded, hav ing 500 persons aboard. It is stated that the boatmen w’ere intoxicated. It is estimated that 300 persons were drowned. Over 200 bodies have been recovered. The recognition of bodies by friends on shore is attended with heartrending scenes. The Train Kobbers. Houston, Texas, June 21.—News reached here that three men had been arrested to-day in La Vaca county, on the line of the Southern Pacific, on suspicion of being a portion of the gang that robbed the train near b'latonia recently. They have been taken to Flatonia for identification. A Strike of I'liluauieu. New York, June 21.—Over four mndred Chinese lanndry employes struck for higher wages yesterday iftemoon. They wanted $4 instead of 13 50 a day, and washers wanted $2 50 nstead of $2. A few bosses of laun Iries accepted through sheer necessity. Coming to Californio. New York, June 21.—Having suffi ciently recovered from the effects of his long illness to undertake the jour ney, Whitelaw Reid, editor of the Tribune, started to-night for Califor nia, where he will remain with his family during the Summer. i Steam Barge Capsized.
