ACCURATE SAMPLING' Considered Essential to Ac curate Assaying. A PRACTICAL MIXER'S VIEWS rrotoats Agaluat the Via of Asaaf Car- Uflcato aa Uoruiuenlary :, Kvldonc. "Accurate sampling is ante a essen tial a accurate assaying, for if the 1 ample doe not truly represent the lot, I ormas, from which it was taken, the ' subsequent assay will be valueless. I The assayer or. chemist will usually re. I celve the sample already prepared, ' but a he will occasionally be called upon to take hi own sample a knowl edge of the art of sampling is essen- i tial." In the Northwest A majority of the ample brought to an assayer are taken by tbe prospector, or other inter ested party, and as the assay certifi cate are often used a the document ary evdence of tbe value of the proj-- ty, the assayer should be very careful to state on tbe face of uch oenficate exactly from whence he obtained the ample on which tbe aasay wag made. If an assayer sample the ore him- elf, he owe it to hi client o to state, a it double the value of the certifi cate. If he did not take tbe sample himself be should place the lesponsi bilitv of tbe sample where it belong, by stating who did take it. Without aoiiie oue known vouching for the ore of tbe sample, ata iy certificate should carry no weight a document. This can liest be accomplished by the as surer seeing to It that bis printed cer tificate blank ia worded to cover the de sired points, telling the whole story and protecting him from any after talk. I must protest, also, against the habit of certain aawayer in filling in tbe value of the ore on theaaaay certifi cate, a they do, at the price of the metal in marketable shape delivered in New York. It ahowa a grots ignor ance on the part of the assayer aa to the value of the ore here, and often mislead the prospector frigntlolly, at the ame tme furthering and opening the door for fraudulent practice. I have seen, thia dimmer, assay certifi cates upon which tbe copper of 6 per cent ore wa figured out at 18 cent, equal to $18 per ton, whereas no smelt er could afford to pay more than about one-third that price. A good practical rnle to use in figur ing out approximate values of a sul phide ore, at present market quota tions, is as follows: Allow 91.25 for every per cent of copper the ore contain. Allow 40 cent for every per cent of lead the ore contain. Allow 60 cents for every ounce of silver tbe ore contain. Allow f 20 for every ounce of gold the ore oonatins. These value are for ore delivered on the Hue of railway. The prospector baa to sample hi own claim and wishes to know the troth. Naturally, I ask how be la to do it, and the following remark are for his benefit, not for the professional: Iu sampling a lead, if tbe vein ia ao that it will all have to go for treat ment, a section of uniform thickness right aoros the whole face of the lead hould be taken for ore samples. Another, and quite as satisfactory A method, is to sample all the rock that comes out of the prospect, or sample the dump, if there la any, by cutting channels through it on the same princi ple a in sampling a ledge. It must Always be borne in mind in sampling tbat there ia liable to be A great difference between tbe dump and the fine ore, and consequently a due re gard must be bad to getting tbe proper proportion of each. Hand-picked earn pies are never reli able, and ahould always be avoided. Experienced mining men frequently take hand samples of particular classes of the ore in a mine, have these assayed and often from these result they esti mate what grade of ore they are min ing. This may be correctly done, and it ia wonderful how close to correct assays experienced men can "guess;" but it is uncertain at the best, and dangerous for inexperenced persons to attempt to be guided by such esti in mates. Assays cannot be averaged, unless one know the actual weight of the ma terial represented by each assay, and only then by a long calculation, too long to describe here, except briefly. In nine case out of ten when the "average assay of a mine" is spoken of, lt is incorrect and is usually obtained by adding up a number of separate as says and dividing the sum by the num bers of such assay. It a quite correct to take an average sample, have tbat assayed, and call it the average aasay; but this ia seldom done. The correct average assay may be obtained by mul tiplying the weight ol each lot of the ore by the assay of such lot, and the produot of such multiplication and divide thia um by the sum of the weight of the various lot of the ore. The quotient of such division will be "tbe only correct average assay" obtain able. O. M. ROSENDALE, In Portland Telegram. C'aatlo Crag Tavern Buraod. Dunsmuir, Cal., July S3.

London, July 21. Tbe Shanghai cor respondent of the Daily Express says: "Intense Indignation is felt here at the honors in Hong Kong that have been accorded to Li Hung Chang, who is looked upon in Shanghai as the orig inator of the whole fiendish anti-foreign plot. "A Chinese merchant who has just arrived from Pekin give horrible de tails of tbe massacre. He says be saw European women hauled into the street by shrieking Boxer, who stripped them and hacked them . to pieces. Their dissevered limb were touted to the crowd and carred off with howls of triumph. Some were already dead, baivng been shot by foreign civilians. He say he saw Chinese soldiers car rying the bodies of white children aloft on their spears while their companions shot at tbe bodies. He gives other de tail too horrible to be particularized here. "it seems that the Boxer leaders had organized a plan, including the offer ing of rewards and rich loot, for the annihilation of Europeans throughout China, and that Prince Tuan' soldier have been emphasizing the opportunity the soldier have had of seizing ths bodies of white women." TORTURED BY BOXERS. Tho Torrlblo rat of On of th Flrat VIetlnra. San Francisco, July 21. A Chroni cle special from Victoria, B. C, says: Advice received from 'orth China contain particular of the awful torture inflicted on the Rev. II. V. 'orman, who, with Rev, C. Robinson, wa among the first of the American mis sionaries to become victims of tbe Box ers. A correspondent writing from Tien Tain on July T, says some refugees who had arrived there gathered from Chineae ghastly detail of the torture inflicted on Norman. It seem that he fell into the band of Li, the head man of a little town hard by the little Anglican misnion, where he and Robinson bad their bead quarter. In a quarrel between Boxer and Christian, the converts had driven off the Boxer from the mission and Li vowed vengeance. This he took in a horrible manner when Norman wa thrown into his hands. After his capture by the rioters, from whom Li took tbe captive, tbe missionary was stripped by the retinue of Li and a collar of iron fastened to his neck. A short chain was attached and he waa tethered to a stake. The Chinese men, women and children then poked sharp stick into hi flesh and jabbed bim with tridents. When be sank down, weak with tbe loss of blood and half crazed by the awful torture, and waa nnable to get upon his knees even, the chain being too short, he strangled slowly. Molten lead was then thrown on hia nude body and as he writhed in agony, he was stabbed to death. His body wa cut to pieces. Robnson, the other misionary, wa laugthered without being so long in agony. He waa cot down by a mob and hacked to peces almost instantly. A number of the mission converts were slaughtered. Some were asked to re cant and those who did so to save their live were saddled and bridled and forced to crawl to the temple idols. THE HOT SPELL. Canaod 8vnty Deal ha m How York Yatrdr.

Thia was the third day of the spell of intense heat. Late tonight the tem perature moderated. Early this morn ing tbe sun began its deadly work, and before the day was fairly well started the hospitals were busy. On the streets the temperature ranged from 93 to 105, and the oflioial report from th weather bureau, high above ground, was 94 deg. shortly before 6 o'clock tonight. Oue death was from an attempt at suicide made while tbe subject was crazed with the heat.

SHIP CUT IN TWAIN Cunard Liner Campania Col lided With a Bark. THE SAILER SAXK IMMEDIATELY Clovsa of Hr Crow Worn Drownad- Campania Kot Koch Damaged. London, July 24. A dense fog hung aver the Irish channel yesterday morn ing, and the Cnnard line steamer Cam pania, en ronte from New York lor Liverpool, struck the Liverpool bark Einbletcn, bound for New Zealand, amidships, cutting her in twain. Tbe Kmbleton sank immediately. Seven of the crew were rescued, but it is be lieved the other 11 members of the ship's company, including the captain, were drowned. The Campania had her bows stove in, but arrived safely at Liverpool, five and a half hours late. The Campania had a narrow escape from aeriou disaster. The fog had delayed her passage since Friday noon, and a tender went out from Queens- town four miles, as Captain Walker would not take the liner near shore. At Tuskar light, the fog was becoming censer every moment. W ben tbe Cam pania was about SO miles northeast of the light a phantom ship rose suddenly, without warning, directly across her bows. Thirty seconds later tbe phan torn had become a solid sailing vessel, into which the liner crashed, her steel forefoot going through the Embleton like the clean cut of a sword, and dividing her just abaft the mainmast. Tbe forward half aank instantly. The tern swung viciously round, and the mast and yards for a moment tore At the Campania. A lump of wreckage came down on her decks. Then tbe stern of the bark also disappeared, and the face of the aea waa littered with splintered timbers, boxes, barrels, the npper works and lighter cargo, tbe deck houses and such things. Then there was nothing. From tbe instant when the phantom came into view from the bridge of the Campania until the last vestige of the vessel vanished some 60 or 80 seconds had elapsed. According to the Embleton's snrviv ors, for nearly half an hour befoie the collision, the captain and first officer were below at breakfast, and, although the fog whistle of a large steamer could be heard every minute, the bark never shifted her course, the helmsman re ceiving no order. When, at 8:25 A M., the second officer, to use his own phrase, "beard tbe rush of a steamer's bow," he shouted down to the captain, who rushed on deck, but he waa too late to give an order. The Capmania was under one-third team. The captain, first officer and pilot were on the bridge. The engines were instantly reversed, and the helm put hard down. : No precaution was omitted. Some of ber passengers had even grumbled at what they called superfluous caution. After the crash and the sudden cries, the boats were quickly gotten out. There were no signs of panic; the crew waa every' where at their stations; tbe bulkheads were closed and everything possible was done to save life. Some ol the Campania' plates were bent by the collision; her forepeak i filled with water; her foretopmast was I broken short off and her steel rigging torn and twisted. The passengers held a meeting, adopt ' ad resolutions ot thanks to the captain and crew, and subscribed 700 for the relief of tbe survivor and the families sf the lost. ' Eighth Infantry for China. New York, July 24. Two com' panies of the Eighth United State in fantry moved off the transport McClel i lan this afternoon and started tor Fort Spelling, Minn. Other members of the regiment are en route from Cuba, nd, after the recruiting of the organ ization to its full limit, it will be sent to China. Tbe men have been In Cuba 18 months, but they looked to be in fine condition. About 2,500 persons were at the docks to meet the soldiers. and the Yonng Men's Christian Asso- I elation proivded coffee and other re- ( freshen t s. The other eight companies of , the regiment were delayed by a storm off Cape llatterus. Cleared th Track and Saved Li Tea. Three Lakes, Wis., July 24. A laborer early to day removed a pile ol ties from the Northwestern tracks, that had been placed there during the night. just.in time to prevent the passenger train due here at 4:30 A. AI., lroui striking them. He also removed number of rocks from a bridge a short distance away. His actions probably , saved the lives of 30 members of a local club, who were on tbe train. j Kngnlfed In a Lara Flow. Yokohmaa, Jojly 23. Mount Azu ma, near Banduisun, which was the I scene of a volcano disaster in 1888, broke into eruption Tuesday, July 17 Hundreds of persons were killed or in jured.

Kan., July 34 Rush orders have come for the Seventh Unit ed States battery of heavy artillery at Fort Riley to proceed with all haste to the Orient, calling for oiders at Nag asaki. General Merriam promulgated the order in Denver. The battery was organized during the Spanish war, and since that time has been idle. The equipment embraces the heaviest call' ber gun in the servloe, with full com plement of mortars, attended by 250 men and 10 officers. NAGASAKI THE BASE. apanea Government Glvee Ita Cheer ful Aaaent. Washington, July 23. A was an ticipated, the Japanese government has given its cheerful assent to the applica tion of tho United States government for permiHsion to land troop and mili tary sopplies at Nagasaki in transit to Tuku. China. This privilege wa de sired in order tbat tbe Pacific trans ports plying between San Francisco and Manila should not deviate from the regular ronte, but that the troops and stock carried by them and intended for service in China might be transferred at Nagasaki to other vessels of tbe transport service and taken direct to Taku. The Japanese authorltie not only have agreed to tbe proposed use ol Nagasaki, but they also have assured the United States government tbat they will facilitate tbe movement of Ameri can troops and supplies as much as pos sible. The quartermaster's department of the army has provided three large transports of tbe Philippine service for use on the line between Nagaaaki and Taku, and it i expected in this way to expedite the movement of troops to China. . The state department ha issued th following bulletin: "The secretary of state received this morning a dispatch from Consul Fowler it Che Foo, dated midnight, July 19, saying A Shanghai paper of the 10th said all foreigners were murdered. Fowler wired tbe governor demanding the truth. The governor replied tbat his courier left Pekin on the 11th, and all then were safe, but Pekin, east city, bad been carried by tbe rebel. with tbe intent to kill." IMPROVED TOURIST SLEEPERS Ballrnada Are Aeeedlng to Deauanda of Middle C'laeaea. In response to the demands ol the time the O. R. & N. and ita connec tions are placing in operation a much better grade of tourist sleepers for Pa cific Coast service than at any previous time.
