The following is an extract from a
letter wriiten by a Ulembet' of lhe
South African Constabulary, who
went ft-om near h»re last spring, to hh.
Iirnlher at Midway : "The 8. A.

save £10(1 peryear. I have quite made
up my mind not tos'np in this country

hink it will be a hard mutter to get

We are told we will be given :

what ihe Canadian gtfrariune.lt were
doing when they ullnv/pd  the British
governmenl to recruit   1200 of theii
twist able bodied men and Itind them
dnwn and not agree to send them hack
lo Canada.   The Australians wouldn't

a crew of 25 men employed constantly

expects lo keep ihat. numher employed
throughout the '.Muter. The men are
raising a shaft from the tunnrl level

ic uii is mu kii.uvn, as Mr. Bnssman
took the erode metal to Minneapolis.
Judging from the quality il is thought
that the ore averaged about $10 perl
ton,
The mill will mil. he completed for a
few dnys so that it can be run in all

Thk ADVANCE wishes its readers
"A Merry Christmas and Happy New
Year."
ElseVhere in this issue we publish
two letters from members of the South
Afiiean Constabulary. It would appear from the lone of tlieso letters
Ihal the Canadians, who went, out to
South Africa to assist the mother
country in subdueing the Boers, are
meeting wilh very poor treatment at
the hands of the Imperial governnient.
Not only has their pay been cut down
but they are but poorly fed, and anyone who bas followed the history of
the South African wiirkitows.full well,
that Canada has lost a large number
of her men Ihrough Ihe inefficiency of
English officers. It is only right lh.it
Canada should assist in bringing this
war to a close, hut lhe assistance given
slinulil not he abused, ft would be
well for the Doniinion government to
take the matter in hand und see lhat
Canadian Iroops meet with at least,
fair treatment while in South Africa,
or if the present, evil is beyond it_ control, cure should be exercised lo prevent similar treatment being given
those who are yel to go,
In reply to a speech made by IheKing
ut a dinner given hy their Majesties on
l.o ird the Victoria And Allien nt Portsmouth on tbe return of Duke und
Duchess of York lo England the Dttke
said : "Certainly it was u great privation for us to be so long separated from
those dear to ns, but. if we have gained
your approval sir, and lhat of Ihe
notions, ue are, indeed, fully rewarded
for nny sacrifice we have made and
any hard work we have gone through
in the enmse of a tour, which will ever
remain a memorable chapter in. our
lives." Poor Duke I By jove, he visited
the colonies, ynu know. It wns a
beastly trip nnd his royal nibs didn't
feel up to much when he reached home,
hut it was awfully jolly just to gel,
hack among people nf his own class.
As far ns Canada is concerned she cer-
t-iinly feels bad indeed if his royal
highness mude any serious sacrifices in
order to visil ibis colony. Canada
was very much pleased lo
Welcome the Duke and Duchess of
York and did ull that was in her power
to in.:ki* iheir trip a pleasant one. but
ilisli-nd of it being tnx< ll, iu would appear from the Dukea speech, that
Sacrifices were made and much hard
work involved in making tiie trip
whicli wns evidently made as a matter
of duty aud not for Ihe pleasure of
visiting one of the most loyal colonies
the oiiipire has ever known.
In speaking upon the development
of the Wesl th" Toronto Globe says:
fio the people of Canada realize thai
the development of the West, for
which we have long waited, is now
assuming enormous proportions ? We
have Jieen looking for it so long and
have been so frequently disappointed
that the sroptirs may well be pardoned
if they still show in velernte incredulity.
Thu great change is coming, nevertheless, and the sooner those interested in
the uml let- realize, that, we are ou the
eve of it, the better prepared will lh**$.'
lie for the situation that wil] then
arise. For a great many years the
progress of the West was of the wobbly description. It was something like
the tiny rivulet at the head ofa great
stream, that, n stone or a tuft of giass
servos todellect from its course. So il.
was with the progress of the West.
In its uncertain, feeble beginnings,
things were against ii, and the least
obstacle staggered it and raised doubts
whether il could ever reach a volume
tilings one after the oilier discouraged
all hot the thoroughbreds, and it is lo
these thoroughbreds that we owe lhe
demonstration of the fact. that, the
Canadian West is good enough forthe
homes of millions of contented and
prosperous people.
CHRISTMAS JOTTINGS.
Among the influences thut hnve
tended to the revival of ihe Christmas
festival In modern times the writings
of Charles Dickens must be given a
high place. lie may be said lo have
revived Christmas in England as
Whit Held and Wesley revived religion,
'I'he hones of the old observances lay
in the valley of the past, but Dickens
revivified them and mude ihem stand
upon Iheir feel.
Iu his extraordinary book, "What is
Art?" Tolstoi falls foul of a good many
writers of the past half century, especially writers of fiction. But, there
are some stories that lie singles oui.
'■as examples of the high, st. ai t, (lowing front love of God and man (both of
the higher, positive, and the lower,
negative kind." And among these he
gives a prominent place lo Dickens'
"Christmas Carol," 'The Chimes," und
other Christmas hooks,
As to burying the hatchet, Is is not
about time that lhat George Washing-
Ion hatchet was buried? Or uill it
remain as one of the "contes deniali-
ques" of the world ? Again, with re*
gard to the hatchet ns a symbol of
feud, il, is not. so much tho hatchet, as
the people who will have to be buried
if we are to be quite content and sure
that it will not he dug up again.
Mrs. finds it very easy to bury
the hatchet at Christmas time wilh
reference to all her men enemies, but
when she thinks of a certain woman
or I wo it isn't burying she thinks of.
She goes around asking for a whetstone,
Some of lhe people « ho cherish the
hatchet, us tenderly as anybody and
never take it to Ihu uodeitiikers nre
the authors. They keep il for their
critics. An author may say he has
buried Ihe hatchet but you may ill-
wnys know that he hasn't put it. In
very deep, and Ihu- he knowsprcuisely
where to excavate il fiom when the
longed-for occasion comes loiit.d,
Il is a remarkable fact that hatchet
people always think lhat the world is
nteri'Sted in their little rhiirp edged
Loots,.whereas the world isn't ut all.
When i* MOID eotitiininlly   polishes   lli>
batehel it is only himself he seen in it.
Nulf said aliout the hatchet,
Don't put two-inch pieces of turkey
or beef into your mouth on Christinas
Day. Tlie day is a holiday, and then
is time to uso your knife and forfr,
cmember that tho doctors want to
ave n holiday as well as ymi. it is
not absolutely necessary to he a glutton in order to keep this Christian
' -stival. Neither is it necessary to gel
druuk. Y'ou had better try Ihe Mani
lob.-i Act if you fear this lust danger.
Thinlt of the poor before you sit
down tn your Christmas dinner, as to
think of them with the meat in your
mouth will not only do them no good
but yourself harm. You can think of
something to send I hem besides digestive pills, perhaps, hut at any rate
show them kindness in some way or
olher.

It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed. This line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers. When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from here,
making this the railway centre of this
district. With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lots
purchased and taken off the market.
Show your good judgment by buying
now. Midway property will make you
rich. It is not a speculation, it i s an
investment.

MARKETS FOR COPPER.
W, M. Brewer Replies to R. E. Oosnell and Urges Active Steps.
A representative of the Victoria
Times recently interviewed VV. M.
Brewei'i M, E„ relative tn Ihe posilion
taken hy It. E. Oosnell, secretary to
premier, in a recent Interview granted
lo the limes.
Mr. Brewer slated that, he was very
pleased to see lhat Mr. Gosnell attached so mnch importance to procuring
statistics relative tr the inaikets of
the Orient for Ihe products of British
Gollirahia, especially copper, lead,
silver, iron, steel, paper, pulp, etc.
"It is a move in ihe right direction,"
In- said, "and thn facl that at present
ihe shipping facilities are against us
is a discovery well worth knowing,
i ecause 'forewarned is forearmed,' and
the piovinrial government can nnw
make proper representation to tlie
Dominion government on the suhject
with a view to subsidizing ship l.uild*
Ing or encouraging tlie Industry on
llu- I'lu-Wc coast. Itwas in order to
bring out the weak points regarding
in y suggest ions to commence invest!*
Itatlons as to tho markeis across tin
Pacilio ocean whicli liist led ine to a
di. Mission nf the subject, and the factor *o prominently brought out hy Mr.
Oosnell while of serious moment, need
nol, in my opinion, hinder the compiling uf sueh statist ics as are necessary
to inform capitalists .villi regard tn
(lid demands of the market, because
I but stumbling bluck can be removed
if ii is ascertained that the markets
ai-.- substantially as impoitaut as is
generally supposed.
"That they are so, 1 have no doubt,
In fact, the press of the Snund cities
aud San Ki-nncisco is continually calling attention lo ihem. I doulit,
ihough, if ihe people In Pacitlc Coast
slates are any better posted on them
than ihoseof 1'iritish Columbia,
'.'At lhe present time the production
of I lie refined products and manufactures 1 have mentioned is so limited
thai  I may be considered as taking
II ine by the fiirelnik premature, hut
this is nnl a good aiguinenl because It
lias heen demonstrated that the first in
the Held reap the biggest harvests so
far as commercial expansion goes,
Twenty years ago the Pennsylvania
iron masters si-ouled lho idea of danger from competition wiih the Alabama furnaces, Intl. to-day the product
of the latter not only compete succhss-
fully wilh iheproductof Pennsylvania,
but It wns demonstrated when No. 1
. foundry iron was selling al $7.60 per
ton thul the Alabama iron would he
exported to Kngland, and sold al a
prolit while Pennsylvania iron of tlte
same grade could not he. The difficulty with regard to shipping was one
of lhe main adverse factors which Ihe
Alabama iron masters bave to contend
with. They fought, a hard fight
thought, and won without any sub
sidies'or help from tlie Federal government.
"1 believs British Coluiut.ia can do
tiie snnie, though uf course if aid can
he obtained from the Dominion so
much the better. But what is of para*
ii ount importance is'to ascertain the
extent and demands of the mai kels
across Ihe Pacitlc, and whether those
markets are the substantial realities
the press slates thejn lo lie or mythical
subjects useful only for attractive ad
vertisements to encourage people to
settle on Ihe Pacific coast."
