THE NEW ELDORADO.
The Palouse Gnzdie says: The A leading English journal iu
newly discovered Coeur d'Alenc dorses a plan recently formed by
mines are creating wide spread an English engineer for founding
excitement in this and other teni-. "deep-sea light houses" as a "hope-
torieiS. Prospectors are flocking
to the ground by hundreds, many
of who have located claims and
propose spending the winter in
the field, in order to be on hand
when the spring opens. Experi
enced miners report them to be
the most promising placer mines
they have seen. The Ilvrtei" says
a town site has been laid off which
is called Eagle City. The gold is
of coarse quality, mixed with
gravel and is found on the bed
rock at a depth of from four to
ten feet. The whole country
shows indications of once having
been under water; the deposits
have been washed down from
some ledge in the mountains. On
Prin chard creek, which with
other small streams which cut up
the country, is a tributary to the
Coeur d'Alenc river, gold can be
picked up in nuggets weighing
from 2 upward. On the 12th a
man named Fisher found a solid
nugget in his claim weighing
SoS.4S. One miner was seen
brushing out the crevices with a
rough broom whittled from a piece
of pine, and the amount of gold
found btlris crude means almost
filled a common yeast powder can. j
Supplies of every kind are vory
scarce in camp, still it will be but
a short time before some enter
prising individual runs in a stock
Men who had experience in the
golden days of California say that
the products surpass anything
they ever heard of. Of course the
mines may peter out, or only be
limited in extent, but those who
have been there say that color
has been found wherever the pros
pector has sunk a pick. Men arc
averaging from $"20 to 30 per
da3, and have only the most
primitive tools to work with. It
stands to reason that the fine gold
is entirely lost. In fact, no effort
has been made to save the small
particles. All the specimens that
have been brought to this city are
in the shape of nuggets, running
all the wa from pieces as large as
a pea to chunks as big as hazel
nuts. When the lodes arc struck
the Panhandle of Idaho will be a
scene of activity never surpassed
in the history of mining operations
in the world.
A man died at sea and the "fu
neral was set for an early hour the
next morning, tile captain, of
course, to read the burial-service.
At the appointed hour the vessel
was hove to and all hands came
aft to attend the solemn rites, f
The sheeted and shotted body lay
on its plank, all heads were un
covered, all hearts brimming with
emotion; but no skipper appeared.
After waiting a long time, the
surgeon undertook to read the
service, and advancing to the head
of the corpse, prayer-book in
hand, began: "1 am the resur
rection and the life." Tardy
skipper (emerging from below):
'Til be d d if you are!
am the resurrection and the life."
The Puget Sound Aryu. of the
Cd hist., put the Yaquina Bay on
the Columbia river bar, according
to the caption in regard to the
wreck of the Ona, as it says "Co
lumbia Uiver Bar Again,' and
then goes on describing the wreck
at Yaquina Bay.
The canning of whales is a new

ful scheme, which, if carried out,
will fulfill a want that has long
been acknowledged." As ex plain
ed to the London Society of En
gineers, this plan proposes the
construction of a hollow cylinder
of riveted iron work, twenty-nine
feet long, and to consist of two
sections the upper part to be 1-10
feet long, destined to rear its head
above the wavos and fitted as an
ordinary light house, while the re
maining portion of the tube is to
be ballasted so as to sink below
the water line, and counteract the
force of the wind and waves on
the exposed part. The whole ap
paratus is to be anchored in deep
water by heavy sea cables. 'The
inventor claims that it would be
eas3' to tow such a structure to the
spot selected for it, then, by ad
mitting water to the lower sec
tion, it would assume an upright
position and ride the waves like
a bottle. The practical use which
this is intended to serve is to give
notice of approaching storms by
means of telegraphic connection
with the shore. It is believed to !
be practicable to found a floating
telegraph station, say, 1,000 milcB
from the coast of England in mid-
ocean, from which comings of ap
proaching storms could be given at
least twenty-four hours before
The Trades and Labor federa-
tion arc in session in St. Louis.
The committee on declaration of
principles made a report which
was adopted. Its salient points j
are that railroad land grants for-1
fcited shall be reclaimed bv the
government; equal pay for equal
work to both sexes; abolition of
the convict contract labor S3stem;
compulsory education and the
state furnish books and other
school materials free; prohibiting
children from laboring in factories
and mines under fourteen years
of age; railroads and telegraphs to
become the property of the state;
a purely national circulating me
dium, issued diroctly to the peo
ple; the employers' liability act,
holding corporations liable for in?
juries received by parsons while
in their employ; all trades and la
bor unions to be incorporated by
