[About that letter!
An otherwise nice letter is too often spoiled by
the stationery. If you want your letters to
make an impression and be appreciated by the
recipitant, you should write them on good paper
and use good envelopes.
I have a good stock of stationery, clean and
well assorted, at right prices.
Post Office Entered and $700. In
Money taken.
He ww Brought before Stipendiary
MegIttrate l_mbly, who
Committed him
for Trial.
Information received tmm Fairvlew
recently gives particular* of another
sensation In that mining oamp, following quickly on last week's fatal Are.
It appears that on Tuesday, 21st, inst.,
cash to the amount of aliout (700. was
stolen from tbe Fairview Post Office,
wbich is located in tbe store of John
Love, druggist, who is local postmaster. Beyond reporting the loss to the
Provincial Police and advising VV. H.
Dorman, of Vancouver, Inspector of
Post Offices on tbe Canadian Pacific
eoast, of the occurence, the matter
was at the time kept very quirt, it
In-ing feared that publicity would interfere with the endeavors at once
made lo discover the thief. Later it
transpired too that a Post Office Bank
deposit receipt had heen forged for the
sum of tWU. and this money was also
missing. Suspicion fell on a man named McClusky, described as an ex-
preacher, fora lime in the employ of
Shatford k Vo. ir. their general merchandise stores and latterly a clerk to
Mr, Love. Upon the arrival of Mr,
Doi man, tlmt official closely questioned McClusky, who Anally confessed to
havingVtolen the money and forged
the receipt, The deposit of WOU, he
had hidden, and this money he refund'
ed, hut no deAnile information is yet
obtainable here as to what he did
with the larger sum. It is stated that
he used it in paying his debts In Fair-
view and elsewhere, but this statement
in not yet veritlcd. McClusky was
brought hefore Stipendiary Magistrate
Lamhley and committed for trial on
both charges.
It will he remembered that Mr, Love
was burnt'd whilst reselling Miss Hunt
the housi'kee|ier, frnm the Fairview
Hotel when thnt building was ln
flames. The miction following the
excitement attendant upon his trying
experiences nn that occasion, together
with worry over th" money loss above-
mentioned, have so worked upon his
mind that he baa Inst his reason. It
is believed that he will shoitly recover
from this unfortunate condition, in
which he bas the sympathy of the
community nf which he has long heen
a respected member.
Regarding the olhers injured at the
time of the Hre; Miss Hunt's condition
le very critical aud her recovery is
regarded as most improbable. Mis.
Matthias Is leported as much Improved.
William Edwards perlshei in his
Burning Cabin
Uved ell by Himself Ine smell Cebln
At Camp McKinney-Wss en
Old-time prospector end
Well   known   In
tbe District.
Caup McKmnky, October »th.-
Flre this morning destroyed the cabin
of William Edwards, sittiare in a part
of the camp known as Whiskey Hill,
and it is beleiyed that Kdwards perish
ed in the flames. He was known to
have gone to his cabin the night be-
fore, hot in a sober condition, and
since then all effort* to And him have
heen fruitless. The, cabin was built
of Ings and the roof was covered with
earth. The debris has been turned
over but no trace of the missing man
found, yet knowing his habits and that
he was not seen to leave the camp after proceeding to his cabin, there is
little doubt in the minds of residents
that he was burned in the cabin.
Edwards was a picturesque old timer
familiarly known as "English Rill"
and "Hei Dog Rill". He came to this
camp almu*. 16 yenrs ago and stayed
with lt ever since. He owned several
mineral claims and othei mining interests and last month spent in approved
western fashion the proceeds of a
sate just made. He was in Cariboo
years ago, and his eccentricities there
made him a conspicuous figure. Hn
fttras known .he had no relatives iu
British Columbia, but had been heard
tn mention a nephew still living in
England, The matter has lieen report
ed to Dr. O. M. Foster nf Greenwood,
district coroner.

Edwards must have been in bed when
death overtook him. It was his habit to burn cm dies in wood holders, so
It ia thought, that he fell asleep leaving

Oranhy'* Big Ore Crustier.
Tlte immense ore crusher ordered
laat May hy the Oranhy company,
has arrived at the mines and is now
heing set up in the building erected
specially for it. It is the largest ma
chine of its kind ever manufactured or

46x8» Inches, and thereby taking in a
piece of ore a cubic yard in site, one
of the cars on which it was shipped

Chinese Immigration.
It is gratifying tn know that some
at least, of the influential British jour
nals realize the Importance nf treating
the Chinese question aa affecting the
colonies, seriously. Too many seem
disposed to look upon the objection
raised in British Columbia, it is a pity
we cannot say Canada, and Australia
10 an unrestricted immigration of
Chi nese as frivolous, and inspired liy
tbe laboring classes only. They do
not seem to realize Ihe important
economic effects such immigration can
have upon the countries subjected to
It, because perhaps they have not been
brought in contact with them. The
London Dally News strikes the right
note when it says s "The desire of the
Australian to secure his heritage for
the white man is one wliieh must command general 'sympathy. He is so
conveniently situated for Asiatic invasion that tha "yellow peril" with which
Europe is periodically threatened Is for
him a constant und very real dangei.
More than once he has been brought
fane to face with the possibility of
lieing swamped hy yellow Outlanders,
who, If Ihey could not steal his land
from him by force of arms, as
is   sometimes  done,   could   annex
11 hy force of nuiiiliers, The
future of the country clearly depends
upon the success nf the Australians in
stemming the tide of Chinese and Japanese, It is not merely a quest inn of
lahor and wages though thnt IssuHlci-
ently serious, for the capacity of the
Chinaman for work is only equalled
by his joy In his noisome surroundings.
The open workings at the Old Ironside* and Knob Hill group of mines
aae growing large. The ore quarries
extend north and south about, 1,8(10
feet snd have a width varying from
ahum oOfeet, at. the upper face to about
100 feet near tbe mouth of lbe main
tunnel, Besides ihis an area approximately 8110 feel long hy -ti) feel wide
has been stripped of the surface debris
preparatory lo commencing lo quarry
the enormous ore Issly here uncovered,
From tbe highest point of the ore outcrop of lhe innln quarry down to lhe
level of the Knob Hill No,3 tunnel
which has ite outlet lower down the
hill, is about 100 feet vertical depth,
Connected with thia tunnel hy winzes
nnd lower levels are the exieusive
workings of the Old Ironsides and
Viclona mines, and below these again
the continuance of lhe oie has been
proved by the diamond drill down m
nearly 1.01)0 feet depth. This immense
ore hody has been proved hv actual
workings tn I* continous along nearly
2,800 feet, has a width of frnui 801) to
KM feet and lives down as already mentioned. The total output of ore from
this group of mines since shipments
to the company's smelter at Orand
Forks were commenced in the summer
of 1900 has now reached au aggregate
of more than 540,000 tons. The output has been restricted during i lie last
four months first, by it shortage of coke
to keep the smeller running and latterly liy insufficiency of power owing io
low water, not admitting of all lhe re
quired power lieing generated. Tnese
difficulties are. however, Iwing overcome and will have both heen disposed
of ere long,

FAIUVIBW, B, C, October 20 —Work

lhe suspension is hut temporary and
that work will shnrt.lv hesesutned, but
the men laid off are leaving lhe camp
tn seek work elsewhere, mosl nf them
going to the Boundary dislrict, where
tliere are several large mines being

The Drummer.
The drummer is regarded hy his
"house" as a sort of necessary expense
—a nuisance of which It fvnnld gladly
rid itself of if it could. Bul to the
puhlic he is frequently as it shadow of
rock in the desert, Out of his excess baggage the railroad conipany
clears running expenses, and hut for
his frequent, visits the .hotel would
have to close up shop and tels the 'rest
cook in town to gn fish. Thed uinmer

price, rush down, for his livery
team. He is an envoy of trade, a disseminator of InfoMiiitioti. a relate!- of
good stories, a healer of breaches of
the peace, and a safe political adviser,
The drummer lias more troubles than
any customer he calls on, yet he keeps
them to himself while patiently listening to the hard luck story of an old
friend or new acquaintance, H* misses

coininorlation." reaches town in time

Treat the drummer kindly. It is not
his fault that he is a drummer and
has to ask you for an order. He
would la> different if he could. Some-
limes he does reform and makes a
model citizen, Try to put as much
warmth into your handshake as he
dues into his, you prohahly feel as well
as he does. Give hint a little order if
you can, instead of sending it in hy
mail. He is human, and may he in a
position to do you a good turn one of
these days. If you can't possibly
squeeze out an mder for him, listen
patiently to his ial , tell him you are
sorry, and ask him tn cull un you when
he comes around again, when yuu
hope there will he something doing.
Especially if he is a young man anil
new to lhe territory, treat libit gently,
These   young fellows do a lot   of hard

nothing succeeds like sin cess, and the

Death of James F. Tlchener.
A telegram receivedfrom New York

president of tbelBrltlsh Columbia Copper Company, Ltd. owning the Mother Lode mine, near Greenwood, and
ihe smelting works at that town, these
together regulary employing abont
two hundred men,
The late Mr, Tlchener had, for more
than six years, heen closely identified
with the development of the mineral
resources of the Boundary District of
British Colunihia. and, during aahorl.
er period, with its smelting industry.
He was a prominent member of the
New York Syndicate, known as the
Bnundary Mines Company, that in
18110 bonded the Mother Lode aud No,
7 mineral claims, and afterwards
bought them and opened them up
until, their permanence seeming assured, seperata companies were organised
in New York tn acquire and operate
them, respectively. He had also been
for many years actively connected
with mines In several parts of the
United States in which he was interes-
ted monetarily,
Mr. Tlchener was a man about
fifty years of age, above the ordinary
stature, and p.inr to his last Illness,
usually seemed lo he in robust health,
He was enterprising and progressive
and did not spare himself where the
welfare of the companies he WW ad *
