Canada
As Seen By One of the Visiting:'
English Editors.
To Uio traveler from Europe
there in in Canada no more
striking and no more delightful
feature than the hopefulness
and confidence whieh mark the
whole hody of tlie people. It is
this that must impress tlie
visitor. Canada to-day is in the
enviable position of knowing
what it is to be young. Every
where one meets the enthusiasm
of youth, and this universal
buoyancy infinitely refreshing
to one who comes from an older
country wliere the future seems
less full of promise than under
the Western skies. There is
not a town or a village which
we have entered iu Canada,
which does not look for progress.
Development is in the air, and
everything which I have seen
points to the realization of the
hopes that are entertained by
the Canadian people. In the
East new industries are springing up. These are manifestations of the country's prosperity,
but to the visitor they ure not
of the same deep human interest as the process of settlement
which is to be witnessed at a
hundred or ten hundred different points in the Northwest.
In the glens at home tliere are
deserted farms and abandoned
shielings. They are a melancholy spectacle, but it would
tie folly to bid the people 'cling
to a hillside iu Scotland when
they can get land for the asking in Canada, and it is because
I am convinced of the opening
which exists for my fellow-
countrymen in the Dominion,
that I wish well to the efforts
of the  Government to foster
migration from England and
Scotland. British Columbia
may not offer to the small settler the same advantages as the
prairies. Its mines, however,
should be un excellent field for
British capital, and its splendid
timber, for tlie handling of
wliieh such admirably equipped
mills as we saw recently in Vancouver huve been erected, must
for long find a profitable and
expanding market in the Northwest Territories. It is the opening up of these regions that is
the dominating factor iu Canadian development today, and
the Farthest VVest equally with
the East will share in the prosperity which is flowing from
the wheutfields. It may seem
trivial to pass from serious und
practical matters like mining
and lumbering, to the holiday
• opie of tourists, but J may be
accused if I say that British
Columbia possesses in its mountains not the least important
of its resources. Some day it
will be the Switzerland of
America; it will lie the play
ground of the continent.
Thousands will come to the
Rockies and to the Selkirks—
thoy are coming already, if lam
not mistaken—and in their
search for health and invigor-
ation they will not be disappointed. The only regret of
the Englishman who sees British Columbia is that it is not
nearer home. He would fain
see more of its beauties than he
can in a hurried visit. He
would gladly live in Canada if
for no other reason than that
ho could revel us often as lie
wished in the majestic scenery
of the mountains. A land with
out hills must ever seem an
empty land. Stevenson speaks
somewhere of the shapely hills.

the ten-drill straight-line air

to arrive at the mine, when he
will have ample power for drilling, hoisting and pumping.
New buildings will have to be
erected to take the place of
those destroyed by fire last
year, and no time will be lost
iu this work.
In the meantime it is tlie purpose of Mr. Plewmun to start
j pumping out the main shaft as
j soon as possible and when the
' water gets down to the first lev-
this year, which amount would
have beeu much larger but for
the coke shortage at the smelters. The new 150 horse-power
boiler is being got. ready for
use, giving all tlie steam power
needed at the property, and development is being prosecuted
on the third level of the main
shaft, the workings being entirely in ose of a good shipping
grade.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 22, 11KB.
The season just passed has
furnished abundant proof of tlie
suitability of the climate and
soil of this fertile valloy to produce small fruits. It matters
not whether tlie gardens are
situated on the bottom or bench
lands, each produce alike. All
kinds of strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, currants and,
in fact, every kind of small
fruit flourishes and attains that
degree of perfection only reached where soil and climate offer
every advantage favorable to
successful fruit growing. Although the crop this year was
not as good as last season, yet
the production was larger owing
to the increased acreage devoted
to that purposo. There was
some little difficulty experienced this season by those who had
large quantities, of fruit, in finding a ready market for the
quick dispojial of it. However,
as the mining industry advances the demand for fruit will correspondingly grow greater, and
it should only be a short time
until fruit growers should find
no difficulty in disposing of
their product in a home market at good prices.
become in a sense associate..editor, '-i.i:
Suppose in your community
you and your neighbor would
give this matter a little attention and make it a point to note
and report any matters of interest, it is certain that your
paper would acquire a new value
and attraction for all people;
Boys and girls, as well as men
and women, have hero an opportunity to help tlie paper
help tho community, and at the
same time find a now source of
personal enjoyment and profit.
The Weekly Paper.
The following, written by a
subscriber to an exchange,
shows how e:i,zh one in a community can help to make the
local paper of interest to its
readers:
There is no better index to
the character of a community
than its weekly paper. Ko agency can lie made more effective
in promoting the interests of
the people. The paper has a
claim upon tbe community that
is seldom appreciated. Yet in
season and out of season it goes
forth with a message to every
citizen, and a message from every citizen to the larger world.
It chronicles neighborhood
events, and magnifies neighborhood interests. For schools,
churches, societies and other
institutions its influence is always sought, and seldom withheld. Births, weddings and
death all have appropriate
notice. As a medium for advertising your town and its interests, for reporting local happenings, and bringing your
people to notice, the importance
of the village paper can scarcely be overestimated.
For more than a quarter of a
century I have been a careful
reader of the little papers published iu many towns, and to
them 1 fcr! a. deep sense of personal obligation. A sense of in
dividual interest as well as of
duty has always prompted me
to aid so far as possible in improving tlie. character- and extending the circulation of these
papers. To me the paper seems
a great factor in the development of business, education and
social life. Just as a community supports its schools and
churches, so may it wisely and
profitably foster' its local press,
If the paper is weak let the people accept the, responsibility and
unite for its improvement, The
editor works with and for the
community; should loud its help
to the editor. Anything of pubic interest can with little trouble be handed to tho editor, or
sent by mail. If one should
visit another village, or travel
in another state, he will be sure
to see or hoar something that
would be of in teres t to hii
neighbors; and in what way
can he convey it to them better
than through tho columns of
tho paper? It is not necessary,
however, to wait until one
leaves home, for his own' farm,
or in his  own  oflice,  store  or
Labor Will Be Protected.
It is not improbable that before the transcontinental railway bill now before the house
at Ottawa is finally disposed of,
some provisions will be introduced with a view to the protection of labor. The matter at
all events has been hinted at.
It is certain that in justice to
labor some such provision should
be attached to the bill. Organized labor would probably have
liked the project hotter had the
government gone in for straight
government ownership of the
railway, but, failing that, labor
is entitled to something in the
way of protection atrainst the
hordes of cheap labor from
other countries, which fhe
building of the railway wil!
doubtless cause to be drawn
hero. Past expedience has
taught the necessity of being on
the alert in all such governnient
undertakings as that which is
now; engaging the attention of
the parties at Ottawa.

uio signt being gone completely.
He was working near one of
the clmtes in the No. 1 tunnel,
wlioro occasionally a part of a
stick of powder is put in to dislodge the ore that has wedged.
At one place there were two of
those chutes, and a little powder
had been placed in each. After
the explosion, supposing both
had gone off, Schartinborg went
back, and received the full force
of one charge directly in the
face, destroying the sight of his
right oyo. Friday he wont to
Spokane for export treatment,
accompanied by his partner,
Robert Galloway. Schartinborg is not more than 21 years
of ago, and had been in Phoenix but two or threo weeks, having gone there from the Fernie
district.
Friday afternoon about 2.30
o'clock the twp. new 30-drill air
compressors recently installed
at the Granby mines, exploded,
but, most fortunately, the only
man iu tho path of the flying
pieces, G. W. Fraser, was not
seriously hurt. He was taken
to the hospital, and an examination shewed that no bones
wore broken; his back was badly bruised, but present indications are favorable. How the
accident occurred is not known,
as there was no warning of the
explosion, which was heard all
over Phoenix. Some largo
pieces of broken iron were
blown through the end of the
building, and it is a miracle how
Feasor, wbo was standing six
feet from the cylinder that exploded first, escaped being killed
outright. Tho low pressure
side of one of the compressors
was running after the accident,
but whether it can be used until
repairs are madefis yet a question. In the meantime the old
steam plant has been placed in
commission once more, and can
probably be made to answer tho
purpose for the time being.
Whether the accident will delay
the putting on of thojextra 100
men for which arrangements
wore being made >s not yet
known. Engineer Taylor | was
in the compressor building
when tho explosion happened,
but was luckily at the other end
of the room, and was not injured. No one else was there
at the time.

Labrador.
Wr. P. T. Mcliruth, a well-known
Journalist ot St, John a, Nonlounu-
lund, in thc course of un article on
Labrador, says.—
ll is u reiuurkabla luct thut while
virtually every re&iocnt o( Labrador
bus been irliun by thu aatai-t dugs
of the region there hna iiuVor I een a
tare of hydrophouiu there. 'I'he tact
in attested by In. tlrimieli, the superintendent of thc Knglisli medical mission there, and who has now spent |
ten years on the coast and treated
over 110,000 patients, lie cannot explain this singular cimuiistnurc: it
may be due to climatic condition*,
but it is more prouablu the result ol
the wolfish strain ln ti.e breed of the
(logs, 'lhe extraordinary part of it
is thut such u condition should lie
found allied with tho most absolute
savagery on the part of the animals.
They ure the fiercest of any brutea
trained to be of sur-l.e to mankind;
they will attack anything thoy believe weaker thnn theins.lvcs, and
they nre only kept tu sul-jctlion by
the unceasing uso of the lush,
They    are   a   cross between     the
Wolves and thc earlier Newfoundland
clous broi.ghl there nnd by this time
almost ull Init Iho wolfish characteristics are eliininutod.    The constfolk
find them imlisponslblo, yet live    in
tear   of   them.     No man    ventures
abroad without his whip, every   wo-
ninn carries a stout club; it is death
to a child to get among them.   Only
lust   month   thc   little   sun of   tho
aueiit   of   the   Hudson'a Hay   Company's post nt Sandwich Inlet   wa*
attacked by the.se brutes.    Within a
n I'i ute they had Inflicted over   sixty

the bid's mother promptly flying   to
the reerue, lie must havo' been liter-
ally  torn   to pieces,   lie was taken
to    the     hnSr'itjrl   at India harbor,
where he is making a quick recovery.
This was a more fortunate outcome
thnn wus the case at Cnrtwright last
year.    A child wandered from home
and when fie dlstrucled mother dew
to where n puck of angry dogs were
ravening she found nothing  but   the
lionca of her offspring.    A .little girl
wns so badly  mangled by them    at
