Louisiana Purchase
as a Nation." Such was the answer given by Sir Wilfred Laurier, of Canada, from his seat in
tho House of Commons, to an
inquiry made to the government by one of tho Canadian
members of Parliament.
The great "silver tongued"
man of Canada meant what ho
said. The news just received
from Ottawa, the seat of the
Canadian government is to the
effect that extensive preparations are being made to show
to the world the immense resources possessed by the
neighbors to the North.
Canada has grown and pro*
sperod wonderfully during the
decade. It's trade has increased
lio enormous proportions. It's:
crops havo been such as to
merit for Canada abroad the
title of "granary of the world."
It's mines and ore fields, particularly those of Nova Scotia and
Cape Breton, have been developed in such a way as to set
dreaming the most pessimistic
and it is generally conceded
that the finest jewel in Oreat
Britain's crown can more than
supply it's home market for
minerals While in exports annually millions worth of grain,
fish, lumber, and timber.
Of the industries based upon
natural resources the fisheries
rank second in Canada. This
country has over 5,600 miles of
sea coast, in addition to inland
seas, innumerable lakes, and a
great number of rivers. Tho
exports of tti« fishery products
in 1897 amounted to $22,783,5 Ml.
The home consumption is estimated at a value of $15,000,000
giving a total yield from the
fisheries of nearly $38,000,000 annually, exclusive of the catch by
foreign fishermen
The sea, inshore and inland
fisheries of Canada furnish cod
mackeral, haddock, halibut herring, hake, salmon, shal, ale-
wives, stripped bass, smelt, lake
trout, muscalonge, white fish,
sturgeon, pike, perch, black bass,
brook trout, eels, and gold-eye,
besides oysters, lobsters, seals,
whales and walrus.
The richest whaling regions
in the world is said to exist in
the Hudson Bay and Artie regions of Canada.
The Pacific coast fisheries furnish halibut, black cod, oulachan
anchovy, herring, smelt, and
many species salmon and trout.
The salmon of British Columbia
are worth over $5,000,000 annually, and the total yield of
the fisheries of that province exceeds $6,000,000.
Lumbering ranks third among
the extractive industries of
Canada and the forest wealth is
very great It is stated that
123 species of trees grow in that
country, 94 occurring east of
the Rocky Mountains, and 29
on the Pacific coast. The forest
belt extends a distance of about
4,000 miles east and west, with
a breadth of some 700 miles.
The trees consist principally of
the following species: black and
white spruce, banksian pine,
white and red pine, larch, balsam fir, balsam poplar, aspen,
canoe birch, bird cherry, white
cedar, black ash and mountain
ash occur sparingly in the
southern part of this belt,
British Columbia is thought
to possess the greatest compact
reserve of timber in the world.
The wooded area is estimated at
285,000 square miles and in
eludes many kinds of timber.
The Douglas spruce is the snow
tree of British Columbia and in
deed of Canada.
Nearly 38 per cent of its whole
area is forested.
In 1899 the capital invested
in the pulp mills of Canada
alone was about $15,000,000.
The capacity of the mills over
1200 tons per day. The value
of. the forest products exported
in 1901 was nearly $33,000,000,
and their total must have been
at . least three times that
It will readily be seen that indeed,. Canada has something
to show and she intends to
spring a universal surprise next
year. Mr. Wm. Hutchinson,
Canadian Exposition Commit*
siouer, is just back in Ottawa
from Japan, where he represented his couutry at the Osaka Exposition. Mr. Hutchinson's trip
to Japan is certain to be of considerable future benefit to Canada and already trial shipments
of wheat and flour have been
made to the Far East couutry
just visited by him.
Annual Meeting of the Winnipeg
Mines, Ltd.
The annual general meeting
of the Winnipeg Mines, Limited, was recently held at the
mine. The managing director,
Richard Plowman, submitted
his report It shows that a
new shafthouse was built to replace the one destroyed by tiie
in May, 1902, the new building
being considerably larger than
the old one. Arrangements
wore also made at the mine for
the shipping of ore from the
dump, that within three weeks
after starting over 1000 tons of
second class ore were sent out,
ore that yielded a profit. Now,
however, ore is being taken
from the mine itself, which has
been largely unwatered.
• The following officers and directors were chosen: President,
John Dean, mayor of Rossland;
Vice president, Charles D. Hunter, of Phoenix; secretary treasurer, Richard Plewmau, of
:Phoenix. The other directors
areW. W, Gibbs of Portland,
Ore.; R. E. Plewmau aud P. W.
Bauer of Rossland aud John A.
Morrin, of Phoenix.
■ Bythefirstof November, Mr.
I'lewnian expects to have a
compressor in working order.
I The mine has 23 men on the
ninety per cent, of their purchases are of single baskets. It
will be the policy of the Department to hold the retailers more
strictly to account in the future for the packages of fruit
which they pass on the public.
If the retailers do not themselves complain when they find
dishonest packing it is because
they are willing to share fn the
fraudulent profit. Of course
the original paeker will always
be prosecuted when he can be
discovered, but that will not excuse the retailer.
Publication Clerk.
Enforcing: The Fruit Marks Act.
The inspectors of the Dominion Fruit Division are now devoting special attention to the
enforcement of the Fruit Marks
Act. Several prosecutions havo
taken place in Ontario, all of
which resulted in convictions,
and several are now pending in
Nova Scotia. These are mainly
for marking inferior fruit No. 1.;
although there is such a large
amount of first class fruit in
the country packers still persist in trying to palm off inferior fruit as No. 1.
I Mr.* W. A. MacKinnon, Chief
of the. Fruit Division, says that
retailors are beginning to understand the scope of the act much
better than formerly, and appear well aware of the existence
of the law and of the fact that
it is being enforced by inspectors. They also understand tho
fact that it is at the disposal of
any private citizen. A prosecution is now pending in Toronto by a private citizen against
a retailer who is said to have
disclaimed responsibility. Only
a single basket is involved but
it is clear that if individuals do
Poplar Creek District.
VicroniA, Oct. 14. — William
Fleet Robertson, provincial
mineralogist, after several
months spent in southeast Kootenay and Poplar Creek dis-*-
trict.isin his office again in
the department of mines.
Mr. Robertson has nothing to
say of the result of his visit to
blocks 4593 and 4951. It is understood that this will form the
subject of a report to be made
to the governnient, the premier
having announced this during
the campaign.
The provincial mineralogist
made a very careful survey of
the Poplar creek country. He
.-•ays there have been exaggerated reports circulated as to the
richness of the district. Some
men are taking advantage of
the recent rich finds there to
boom properties which have not
any  showing to  warrant    it.
This,   Of   COUlse,  ie   only   what
might be expected in view of the
showings which have been
made in some instances.
Throughout a very wide area
there are, however, strong
quartz veins, carrying gold.
The great area which is miner-
tlized is a strong point in favor
of the territory.
Mr. Robertson does not for a
moment doubt that the veins
have good depth and extent enough to satisfy any miner. Ore
of the most exceptional value
has been found in many places,
but there is need for a considerable amount of development.,
work before any well defined
rule can be established as to the
general value of the country as
a gold producer.
After travelling up the
mountains and seeing thc cracks
at Frank left in tlie rocks, Miv
Robertson thinks that the work
of disintegration has not passed
away. Tliere will undoubtedly
be other slides, as conditions
still exist for causing them but
when these will tako place is a
matter for conjecture. There
may be no further slides for
conjecture. There may be no •
further slides for years, but
they will undoubtedly come.
He accounts for the unstable
conditions at Turtle mountain
as being due to the hot spring
at the base a short distance from

Mr. Ritchie, member of par.
liament for Croydon, and until
recently, Chancellor of the Ex
chequer, in the course of ft
speech delivered tit Croydon
Town Hall, in opposition to Mr.
Chamberlain's preferential tar-

"The country must guard

erase for resentment against
this country since if thoir
nuiglibcn'Si the Canadians, wer
allowed to send their wheat into England at two, or throe
shillings a quarter less than
America could, America would
certainly punish Canada."
To the orodit of tlie audience
this statement was met with
cries of "No, they exclude us
now." and shoijfcs of "Tho McKinley tariir "Ifubbish' and
Mr. Ritchie, after order was
restored continued: "I am quite
sure that whatever opinions you
may hold on the fiscal question
you do not wish to see any
breach of tho friendly relations
between the United States and
Canada or beteen tho United
Sfefces and Great Britain." A
large "-oution of the audience,
now broke out. singing "Britons
Never Will be Slaves."
Lord Rosobery in a speech recently delivered on the same
question, said thtit the prospect
of   worse   relations   with   the
United States, Russia, Germany
and France  wore not allurinj":.
It would appear fropi   this
that some of Britain's most em-
inoiit ViUtemen cannot advance
anything    hotter against   Mr.
Cliavnher'laiii's   proposals  than
these cowardly and   pusillanimous sentiments; but that   at
heart the British public is sound
and   wiser   than   its  leaders.
Though conservative by nature
find adverse to sudden changes
in thoir economic system, they
will  in  time adopt whatever
system they may bo convinced
* is in the interests of the Briiish
Empiie,   irrespective of  wbat
the United States,   Russia, or
any other country thinks about
it.   Foreign countries, and the
United States in particular, as
the popple of Canada well know
aro not aj'custornod, very properly wo think, when framing
thoir tariffs to worrying about
offending the people of  Great
Britain and the British Empire.
Wo should think tlie speeches of
Mr. Ritchie and Lord Rosobery
would be in a manner eminently satisfactory to Mr. Chamberlain, and we can imagine with
what disgust Canada's   vetern
statesman, Sir Charles Tupper,
wbo recently said that this epoch w.'h the (li'o.tm of his   life,
would read them.
with its shaggy spreading roots full of
matted earth and stone, rapidly being
covered with grass and moss, and the
elver bed full of bleached driftwood,

turesqueness, its own fitting place ln
this wild 'harmony. There is beauty
oven In the work of the forest fire,
which has left whole mountain sides of
freshly scorched pine foliage, a deep
golden red smoldering in tlie sunshine,
aud many a blackened bit of forest,
longer burned, leaves nn impression of
somber shadow, of silence and death,
which cannot be forgotten.
One even comes to begrudge this wilderness Its telephone poles, its roads
aud the excellent stone embankment!
which keep them from slipping down
the mountain sides Into the swift
streams below, for they detract from
Its wild perfecUon. We may behold
nature ln Its softer and more comely
aspects almost everywhere, but every
year, with thc spread.of population
ln our country, it becomes moro difficult to preserve genuine wlldernesl
places where hill and forest and stream
have been left exactly as nature made
them. Already our indomitable pioneers have driven the wilderness into
tbe very fastnesses of the mountains,
so that only remnants now remain. And
this great Yellowstone park remnant

government for thc enjoyment and inspiration of the people forever,—Ray

It Is recorded as something remarkable that a Japanese novelist has com*
pleted a story which occupies ninety
volumes. Such a work would seem
rather long If one had to revlcw.lt, but
there ore possibilities in tbe very long
novel. Ono very well known writer
has frequently snid that if be were entirely free be would select a group of
characters and. at the end of two years
would have produced a tale dealing
with all that happened to them ln a
single twelvemonth. In tho next two
years he would carry matters on tor
another twelve months, and so on to
the end. It Is not Incredible that he
might do this with complete success,
for where a man hns written seriously
he very often leaves bis characters at
tbe end of the book in such relations
that they cannot go on living in the
world without helping to make another
and an Interesting story.—London Post

toma have lately been entertaining

other way.'"'
According to tha simple explanation which llr. Sowerby Walljs, it»
rainfall expert of Cambden Square,
gave the reason is this:—The disruptive explosion in a thunderstorm lt
an ellort on tho part of nature to
adjust tho distribution ol electricity
between earth and sky. But just as
a lightning conductor provides an
easy passage for thc electricity from
sky to earth, so every baro wire acts
as a conductor and helps dissipate
the aerial electricity which Would
otherwise cause thunder.
The influence ot the wires la London I>r. Wallis said, is very perceptible, to that with the over extending
system of telegraphs, telephones, and
other electric/ works thunderstorms
should show a tendency to decrease.
Out as td "whether there arc more
or fewer storms than tliere were a
few years ago Dr. Wallis pointed out
that the question arises: What is a
thunderstorm? Are one clap of
thunder and one flash of lightning a
storm? The meteorological method
is to measure the rain, as heavy raiu
it a notable feature of thunder-
"Ther* -aecnr In an Irregular manner," tald Dr. Wallis, "groups of
years with frequent thunderstorms
and groups with a marked absence'
of them. As far. at I know, this cannot ba ascribed to any specifle
cause. Storms are lest frequent Over towns than ln the country, as the
chimneys and steeples tend to prevent electrical explosions."

"What is the reason of this?" ask*
td Professor H. W. White, in delivering hit presidential address to ths

One cause was the fact that fewer
eligible aliens settled In the country
and intermarried with our people.
There was therefore less infusion of
fresh blood into the race than was
formerly tho caso. Tho lorelimerB

to weaken tho stock, tot they wert

by disease.
Tht frequent marriages ol neurotica
with those Inheriting the taint ot
insanity was another cause, and the
Increased tendency to marry late in
life was anything but desirable. The
abuse of alcohol was another great
cause of lunacy. We were now a
tpirlt drinking race, which we were
not half a century back.

these spirits," said tho speaker. "If

The earlier lamp-posts in London,
Says The Magazine of Art, were
evolved from the cannon discarded as
obsolete or faulty after the Napoleonic wan. That* actual service
cannon were freely used at Woolwich
and probably other garrison towns,
as street corner-posts, the bora being plugged with oak to keep out tho
raln and refuse, the emerging end of
the plug being shaped in Hemispherical form to represent the issue of a
cannon-ball. Later on these real
cannon were superaeded by Imitation
Iron eastings, the half cannon-ball
and all. This cannon pattern for
corner-posts found Its way to London, where it may still be seen in
many of our older straits and
squares. Frm the unenlarged cor-
per-post of the cannon pattern
emerged the lamp-post of the period,
which is familiar in London to this
day.       __,_
