'Flying Dutehinan"-
A characteristic Irish bull was recently perpetrated on lbe House of
Commons by Mr. Flavin, un liiidi
mem her, wbo said : "The Irish soldiers
lose their lives in .South Africa, and on
their return home are starved lo death
by the war oflice.
We would again call the attention
of tbe government to the disgraceful
state of a nnmhor of bridges in tbis
locality, some of wliieh huve tieen in u
very dangerous condition for months
and us yet uu effort bus lieen made to
have Ilium repaired, Would it not lie
wise un tbe purl of the government tn
attend to this mutter before an accident occurs, whicli would require the
payment of damages nf un amount far
in excess uf what it would lake tu
make the necessary repairs?
If Canadian soldiers are going to fight
abroad for the Empire, ii will need  In
lie understood among British officers
that the men from the colonies are a
new hreed of private soldier.   This is n
democratic country, and, while Cana
dian officers can enforce discipline as
far as they like over their men, it often
happens that  the  private  soldier  in
education and In uny civil lest is quite
the equul of his officer,   This private
soldier has gone lo the war voluntarily,
aud  for   three  reasons,,  because   he
loves adventure, because lie wants to
see the world and because he wants to
show that Canadians arc men of met
tie.   Many of the Canadian private
soldiers who are in South Africa   are
university men, many uf Ihem lielong
tn wealthy  families,   many  uf  them
held officers'rank in the militia, bill,
failing io sn ure commissions in tlie
South Africa contingents, and know*
iug the class of men  who were enlisting, joined jis privates.    Aside,  however, frnm all such  special cases,  the
young   Canadians   who   wnuld bear
nrms in time of war could never endure the Briiish sysiem  which lunkes
the   private soldier  a  social   niilcasl.
They  would not  admit—they would
nol even comprehend — the claim  of
superiority in anything but army rank
which   uflicers  might set   up    The

however, who will voluntarily go forth

other than the technical sense and for
purposes  of   military   conveniences.

The City of i'nris, Qentral camp,
has itlrei'dy shipped 2,000 tons of ore
to the ttratiliy smelter.
The shipment of two caw of ore
from ibe Buokhorn to the Trail smelter gave net returns of $24.3*2 to the
ton. The oopper value was nine per
cent., gold $0.71) and 30 cents in silver.
Frank Hickards left yesterday for
Summit camp, where he, in company
with several olhers, will do assessment
work on a numher of mining properties
owned by W, K, Rickards and .). McNicol.
The Athelstan has joined the list of

Andrew Laidlaw bus bonded the
Evening Star and Sibley claims, in
Wellington cninp, from .1. K. and K.
S. Fraser. -Tin- price mentioned in the
bond is $15,0<x). payments running over
lii months. The EvenineSlat and Sidley ure situate ahout one mile from
Hartford Junction, The assessment
work for the two claims bus been done
on the Evening Star. A ledge of copper ore over 125 feet wide has been
uncovered and traced foroOi) feet. Assays as high as 11),'! II) per eent. cop|ier
have lieen received uud the gold values
are about $2. The showing is of so
promising a nature that Mr. Laidlaw
feels justified in expending considerable
money in further development of the
property. Shipments of high grade
ore can he made from the surface and
if the ledge maintains ils present values
and proportion with depth, the Evening Star will he one of the biggest
properties in the vicinity.
A recent mill test of 35 tons nf ore
from the Alma, (.'amp McKinney, gave
15 oz. of gold besides the concentrates,
which il is estimated will reach $100 in
value. The test was made by the Minnehaha stamp mill, and wus from ore
taken all the way from tlie grass roots
down to tbe 17-foot level. The Alma,
which adjoins tbe Pendray, wns located
by W. Edwards, The main working
shaft is down 47 feet und Ihe ledge,
which wus but one foot wide on the
surface, has increased to two and u
half feet in width at this depth. The
lend runs in a southerly direction and
can he traced for l.tHKI feet, showing
tree guld on the surface. Besides the
main shaft tliere is another one ubout
2n feel deep, disclosing n ledge of the
same kind of ore. The ledge of the
Alma, unlike a great many claims in
(.'amp McKinney, is not a continuation
of the fatuous Cariboo, but is a new
ledge first discovered on tlie Alma.

THE GAME LAWS.
Sixteen to One.
The following explanation of the
meaning of HI to 1 is given in view of
the re-affirming of tbe platform hy tlie
Democratic national convention at
Kansas: A gold dollar weighs 25.K
grains, of which 23.22 grains are pure
gold, the remainder lieing alloy, A
Bilver dollar weighs 112 5 grains, of
which (1-10, or 371.25 grains, are pure
silver, the remainder being alloy.
Thus the pure silver in a silver dollar
weighs about sixteen times us much us
the pure gold in u gold dollar, und this
is the meaning of "16 to 1," Tlie proposal to adopt the free coinage of silver
nl, a ratio of 1(1 to 1 is u proposal that
any owner of silver bullion shall be
authorized hy law to take it to a United States mint and have coined and
■ et timed to him one dollar for each
371.25 grains of silver, this dollar being
the legal tender for the piiytnentjif all
debts, public or private. The silver in
such a dollar (and Ihe dollar itself
under free coinage) at the present price
of silver is not wortli far from fifty
cents in gold.
B. C. Timber for Hontreal.
Tlie lumber of llrilisli Columbia is
hard to beat, Some very line pieces of
timber are now ready for shipment to
the cast. The limbers are not especially wonderful from the point nf their
thickness, but for tbeir length of 120
feet, they are particularly fine sticks,
and among the best, ever sent, from
