MONDAY. JULV 9.WW.
A petition to tlie Hon. the Postuias*
ter General for the provision of mail
facilities for the West Pork of Kettle
Biver is now being circulated in the
district and is everywhere meeting
with signers.  The petition nsks for
regular  mail service between  Bock
Creek and Beaverton.   It urges the
meeting cf a real need and one that
should not longer remain unprovided
for.  About a year ago the Postofflce
inspector for the mainland visited the
West Fork, and it was thought hy
those chiefly interested that the inauguration of a regular mail service
between the points mentioned would
*oon follow tbe visit of that official.
But it did not, so that to-day the mining camps up tbe main Settle Biver
and the West Fork are entirely with
out mail communication.   A weekly
wail is being cirried to Westbridge, a
point six miles above Bock Creek, al
the confluence of the West Fork with
the main Kettle Biver, but it is of little
or no benefit to any place other than
Westbridge.   Taking the townsite of
Beaverton, which is between 35 and 40
miles beyond Bock Creek, there arc
within a radius of five or six miles several mining properties upon which a
large number of men will be continuously employed from now on.  The
circumstances of the situation have
materially changed since the Postofflce
Inspector visited the neighborhood, as
a number of the properties bave since
come into prominence.  Take for instance the Carmi, which at the time of
(he   Inspector's   visit   was scarcely
heard of, has since been bonded for a
large figure, and is giving such thorough satisfaction that the various payments which have become due have
been promptly met, and a shipment of
ore from this property will leave Midway this week for tbe Trail smelter.
There are also a number of other promising properties in the vicinity of Beaverton, such as the Washington and
Idaho group, the Atlantic Cable group,
the Mountain Belle group, 16 to 1,
Knob Hill, King Solomon and others,
Another good reason why this reasonable request should be granted is that
there are now at Beaverton a number
of business houses and residences, the
owners of which have gnne in there
believing lhat tbe district will grow in
importance and its population increase.
They have unbounded faith in the district.   They are opening up a new
country, a country whieh when devel-
oped  will  return a great revenue.
These trail blazers nre benefactors to
■ the country, and should receive some
encouragement in return for the energy displayed in bringing lhat country
to the front, and no more suitable way
can the Government And than in providing for this long felt want.  The
people are entitled to it and should
have it.   In tbe foregoing no account
haa been taken of other small settle
merits or camps situate along the West
Fork or up the Main Kettle Kiver,
which wonld alao be served in a measure by the sending of a regular mail
from Bock Creek.  There are, Ihough,
several of these, so it does not seem an
unreasonable request to ask that a regular mail service from Kock Creek to
Beaverton be established, and that this
lie done immediately.

"1\> develop these tnirteMess resource* we have a people blended of
two dominant races-a people tracing
its origin to freedom, religion, and
loyalty—a people which has kept itself clean from the taint of criminal
and pauper immigration. To incite
us to greatness we have all tbe glory
of France and Britain, whose heirs we
are, whose example is always before
us, the seeds of whose example is al
ways before us, the seeds of whose
virtues are sown in our hlood. Thus
peculiarly favored by the God of Nations, we stand with our feet on the
threshold of the future."
K.
In the middle ages war could he
created at very short notice on tbe
slightest pretext. It is far otherwise
to-day and now tbat Lord Bobs bas
conquered in South Africa, Britishers
as students of history, will begin to
recognize, strictly among themselves,
that Oom Paul and his Boers were not
the sole causes of trouble In South
Africa. So it is in China No one,
except the foreign consult resident In
the Chinese Empire, are aware bow
much the present deplorable state of
affairs there is due to Ibe foolhardy
acts of foreign traders aod missionaries who have been continually reporting petty events tothe consuls and
claiming the help of their native country to secure tbem heavy damages.
The acts of these little men may, perhaps, tell for the betterment of the
world hy bringing about the fall of the
great Chinese Empire and ita dismemberment among civilized nations.
THE WOMAN OF THE HOUR
Tbeie can be no doubt that the above
appellation properly fhs the Dowager
Kmpress  ef China.  Queen Victoria
steps for tbe moment into tbe background as the public look tor news of
the mistress of China.   Born of pour
parents  near Canton, she became a
slave.girl remarkable for her beauty
A famous general purchased her and
passed her on to tbe Emperor Hsien
Feng, who made ber his second wife,
very nearly on tbe same footing as hi-
first wife who was still alive.   On the
Emperor's dealh both wives were lefl
regents for the young Emperor.  The
slave girl had nn imperious disposition
and soon overruled ber mote yielding
rival.  She dismissed the Council   o'
Regency and began placing creature*.
of ber own in high places.   Shortly
after the Emperor   came of age his
mother died.  He soon followed.  The
slave  girl  at    once   proclaimed her
nephew Emperor.   This was I he present ruler, Kwang sn, then four years
nld.  In 1880 he was declared of ng>-
but continued to let his  aunt govern    the Empire.    After   the   wai

Mr. E. F. G. Richards in Greal
Thoughts writes that "boundless are
the possibilities of that future upon

Rich, almost beyond calculation, is our
ritage, material, intellectual, spiri-
ual. The area of Canada is 3,486,388
square miles. It constitutes more lhan
one-lhird of the whole British Empire,
and is only about two hundred thousand fqmire miles smaller than lbe
continent of Europe. In other words,
if Canada wer» placed upon Europe
tbe whole of that continent would lot
covered, with the exception of France;
or, if lhe United States, without Alas
ka, were placed on Canada, British
Columbia and half Alherta wnuld he
left uncovered. Without ita dependent territory Alaska, lhe United
States is four hundred thousand squire
miles smaller than Canada. The one
Canadian province of British Columbia is larger than France. Italy, Switzerland, and Portugal taken all together. Quebec and Ontario are each
larger than the German Empire and
Switzerland combined. Nova Scotia
is larger than Greece, or Switzerland,
or Denmark, or Holland, or Belgium.
Yet Nova Scotia ii the second smallest
province of Canada. Prince Edward
Island is larger lhan Montenegro.

There is a big Imooi in South African
stamps. The war has enhanced tbeir
value and has enormously increased
tbe demand for Ihem.
Several dealers whom a Dally Mail
representative consulted yesterday
agreed that, there had never heen such
a i ush on South African issues. Mr.
G. R. Uinn, of the Strand said : "The

They are rare ul present, for the curious reason that most of tbem were

"The soldiers in Bloemfnntein bought
them up aa soon as tbe were issued
and were sending them to friends in
England. They were all sorts, from
halfpenny up to five shilling stamps.
I have sold one of the latter, unused,
for £5. The 'Drie Pence Oranje, Vrij

will soon be worth as many pounds.
"Su fur no Mafeking stamps have
got on to the market, but they will
fetch high prices when they come here.
The V. B. I. Free Staters are in high
demand, and so will the converted
Trunsvaalers be when Lord Boherls
issues them.
"A complete set of Transvaal stamps
would cost over £1,000, for a great
