Hearing of a gold strike in the inter ior ho took what monev he had earned and with a weeks provisions set out for Allan Lake where ho secured some of the yollow metal and staked out two claims, but not having anything to live on was obliged to come back out to the summit of White Pass where he went to work again in a rock cut. While working at the pass ho re ceived word from homo that his little boy had died and immediately started for Vermont. After being on tho road from Sept. 22 he arrived in Barre last night driving up from Montpelier iu a team. He is stopping at No. 8 Keith avenue now, but expects to go back to Alaska in a few months and work his claims. Besides his gold specimens lie has somo fine ones of garnets and asbestos.

A SUri'KR AND ENTERTAINMENT AT THE 1'KESIIYTEKIAN ClllltCH. The supper and entertainment given at the Presbyterian Church last evening by the Ladies Aid Society was a social and finaneinrsueeess. The crowd of hungry people began to appear at five o'clock and tho vestry was crowded till nearly eight o'clock. There wero six tables loaded down with good, things for the. innex.mau and they suffered severely from tne repeated at tacks of the assembled parishoners and friends. The door-keepers were Mrs. Cable and Mrs. Park. The reception com mittee was composed of Mesdames Dun can, Darling and Phillips. The kitchen was under the efficient direction of Mesdames James Walker, Connon An derson, J. R. Mckenzie and" Robert McKenzie. Each table was in charge of a lady, tho following names being those presid ing: Mesdames George Stewart, Alex Clark, Charles Williams, Edwards and Brown. The waitresses were Misses Kate Phillips, Mary Grant, Barbara Duncan and Lizzie Park, Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Kesson and Misses Mary Milne, Maggie Clark, Jennie Connon, Bella Dobie, Leilh and Lizzie Milne. After everybody had satisfied their appetite, the company proceeded from ihe vestry to tho body of the church and the following interesting pro gramme, arranged by Mrs. Robert Mc Konzie and Mrs. Alex Clark, was given : 1 Song. ''Ye iauk und Itraes O'Boiinie Doon," John Anderson, Mrs. Grant, Miss Grace Puige und Frank I'assie. 2 Vocal Solo. "Tell Me, Mary, How to Woo" Thee."' (ieorge Mitchell it Address.

The ladies of the Universalist church gave one of their suppers last evening and if such a thing wero possible it was even moro satisfactory to its patrons than any that has been given before. It was hold iu the K. of P, hall and was attended by a largo number of 'people not only from the Universalist congre eation but from other churches, i It was tho annual harvest supper and consisted of tho good old fafhioned farm house fare that is so seldom en joyed by tho busy peoplo of tho cilv. The guests were ushered to the dress ing rooms and from thence to the din ing hall by Mrs. B. It. Robinson. Tick ets were sold by Mrs. V llliam Pago and she was kept very busy from 5.30 to 7.o0 in the evening. Tbe Indies who sorved at the tables were Mrs. Quigley, Mrs. Huteliins, Mrs. Danforth, Mrs. Meakor and Mrs. A. I). Morse. The other ladies of the church also deserve much ccedit for the success of the affair which was certainly , a most pleasant one, A SMALL CROWD. For some unaccountable reason Mrs. Zotlinans opening ball at the new B. 1 homos block was out poorly attended. The dancers of our city have only themselves to blame however for not en joying a first class dance in a nice hall, and with good music m attendance. Mrs. Zottniau prepared a bounteous feast in anticipation of a large attend ance anil was ready to do all in her power to make the evenings entertain ment a decided success, but the public did not respond and must blame no one but themselves for the enjoyable time they missed. Mrs. ottman has leased the whole second floor of the block and has open ed there a first class restaurant and boarding house. The dining room will easily accomodate sixty boarders, At present ho has ten lodging rooms, which aro all occupied. When the ad dition to the block is completed she will lease tne whole flat in bolu. tu-ilomg, thus securing kitchen room and fifteen or more extra lodging rooms. ' The block is heated by steam and lighted by electricity. Ihe dancing hall on the third iloor is one of the best in the city. Its size is 30 x 60 feet and the floor is all right. Iwo well equipped cloak rooms open frpra the hall. Tho ground floor of tho block is taken up by two stores, one of which will probably be occupied by Mr. Thomas himsolf, LEADING USER OF INFRINGING PNEUMATIC TOOLS PAYS DAMAGES. The New England Granite works, of which James G. Batterson is owner and president, thought it expedient to com promise the claims of tho American Pneumatic Tool Co, for damages for the unlawful use of the Marx and Keller tools, by paying somo thousands of dollars in settlement. This firm is cut ting tho stone for our new cily hall nnd is one of tho most prominent in the country. Among The Churches. METHODIST Clll'IiCll.

Knrmera 8(111 Hold Ins Wheat In Hope of Higher Prleen Sunar War llclfm Consumers Failure of the Week. New York, Oct. 8. R. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of trade says: The last quarter of 1898 begins with sensational, troubles in wool, the Tradesmen's National bank having fail ed, with large reported loans to the wool warehouse, while the Wool Ex change has Stopped sales, and The Wool Record has stopped publication, and the same week witnessed the failure of the Sawyer mills and the Plymouth mills. It can d no good to disguise the fact that the large eastern advances on wool to be held for higher prices has helped to retard the natural decline in that product, of which 100 quotations by Coates Bros, of Philadelphia average 1S.71 cents against 20.83 Feb. 1, white extraordinary small sales, only 2,614,300 pounds for the week at the three chief market?, against 14,337,000 last year, 7,663,800 In 1896 and 7,099,000 in 1892, in dicate very Utile demand at this time for manufacture. The iron industry still gains so rapid ly that an unhealthy boom would seem to be in progress but for the peculiar conditions. In spite of the combination of valley producers, who now propose a Joint selling agency at Pittsburg, Bales run a little below their fixed figures, $10.40 being quoted at Pittsburg and J9.i!5 for gray forge, while southern and local iron are steady at Chicago, and anthracite is not Etronger at Philadel phia. But the consuming demand is remarkably heavy, and large cont actr this week cover 3,000 tons structural iron at Ch.'rngo, 8,000 tons for Boston, 2,000 tons ship plates at Cleveland, and a heavy demand for bars, the P.n is-yl- vania railroad requiring 2,500 cars and the Northwestern 2,000. Wheat DeellnlnK'. Wheat has been declining a little, with foreign reports somewhat more favorable as to European crops, and y I the actual shipments have been 3,58 .0:' bushels, flour included, for the week against 4,468,954 bushels for the corre sponding week last year. All report: still Indicate that farmers are qult generally holding back their crop in tin hope of higher prices, and collections at lhs.west.are almost everywhere retard ed on that account, and yet the westerr. receipts amount to 10,539,359 bushel: against 8.810,720 for the same week last year. Nor is the corn crop any ob struction, for while 2,531,002 bushel; were exported during the week agaiiiRt 1,855,067 last year the movement doe: not indicate large supplies in the in terior. With stocks of Tobacco trust falllnr over $20 last week, it is not surprising that there is some weakness in that de partment, of securities, averaging about $2 per share, while railroad stocks av eraged 22 cents per share higher than a week ago. The battle between the great sugar producers has reduced prices ot refined sugar over half a cent during the past week, and yet the opposing companies find no satisfactory ground for agreement, and the contest is likely to continue for some time. failures for the week have been 16S In the United States against 212 last year and 23 in Canada against 29 last year.
