Somebody says the Chinese despal lies
are all written by an individual appropriately named Dam Li.
The Toronto "Telegram" says :—
Ahout the only Canadians who will
stay in Smith Africa aie the heroes
whom the Boers were able to welcome
"witb bloody hands to hospitable
graves."	
A new cage is heing put in the B. C„
Dealing wilh Ihe Briiish South African Chartered Company's offer of free
farms iu Rhodesia to colonial voliui
leers, the London Morning Poal maintains that.although it is well meant. It is
a breach of courtesy to persuade Canadians and Australians to desert their
own country iu favor of South Africa.
"in the immediate past," says the Post,
"we have so often slighted these great
but sensitive English speaking nations
that it will he well to avoid even the
appearance of such discourtesy."
Being satisfied that the United
States, like great Britain, favors preserving China as a mil ion, the Chinese
of the United Slates propose to offer
tbe government the services of a corps
of Americanized Chinamen as scouts,
guides, boatmen, interpreters and
bosses of coolie laborers. Now wouldn't
that be n grand arrangement for the
Chinese? Just fancy the United
Stales placing enough confidence in a
corps of Chinamen to allow them to
act as scouts and guides. Under such
guidance the American forces would
bo led over the great divide.
The Nelaon Tribune in a recent edi
toral says : "The railway charter
mongers have made their appearance
at Victoria again. They are after the
subsidy of $4,000 per mile which was
ottered in the lapsed charter to the V.
V. & K. Conipany for a short line from
Kootenay to (he Coast. The former
holders of the concession were unable
to do anything with it within the lime
limit, but their failure will not deter
others from making the attempt.. Ii
remains to he seen whether tbe legislature will revive the old policy of permitting charter mongers to absorb the
bonuses wbich are voted supposedly to
defray the cost of railway construction.
This |Milicy was denounced from one
end of the province to the other during
the leeenl political campaign, Out ii
may be one of the many issues that
are lost sight of hy members when
their seats are won." The Tribune does
not accuse the legislature of reviving
the old policy of granting bonuses to
defray the costof railway construction.
It. simply reminds the members of Iheir
promises during tne recent political
campaign. Lest, we forget! Lest we
forget I

lt is expected that the ledge will be

A cheque has been received frnm the
Trail smeller on the last carload of ore
from the Winnipeg treated there, giving net returns of $1(1 per ton. In
future all the ore of this mine will be
sent to the Granby smelter, which has
given a $5.50 rate, as against the $7
charged liy the Trail smelter for freight
and treatment.
The latest assays from Ihe Zala M.,
Sheridan camp, give an average of $51
taken across a two-foot paystreak of
quartz, giving gold and silver values,
occurring in the south drift of Ihe 800-
foot level. The remainder of the ledge
in the tunnel, some four feet, gives
smaller values than this. The walls of
the ledge have not at present heen
crosscut for, but from evidence it is
thought lhat the ledge at this level
cannot be smaller than 15 feet in
width, widening to this extent from a
—1>-inch seam on the surface of the
mine.

The Spokane Industrial Exposition
will he held this year from October
2nd to 18th, inclusive. Mr. W. E.
Hawley, ihe secretary of the Chamber

There is no better investment at
the present time than Midway property. Those who bought in Spokane a
few years ago have since made fortunes. Midway is the Spokane of the
Boundary Country. It is the coming
metropolis of the interior. Trains will
be running into Midway in a short
time and the prices of lots will go up.
Invest now and make money.
