A Good Field for Investment
Mark F.Maddon, of the firm of
Madden Bros., Chicago, who is
president of the Providence Mining Company in Greenwood
camp, and who arrived here
last week, was interviewed by
a Times reporter and, among
other things, said: "I know of no
better field for investment than
the Boundary. My friends in
Chicago and myself feel very
friendly towards the Boundary.
Those who join me in the Providence company all have previous experience in the mining
ventures, but nearly all received
in the Providence dividends
their first returns from mining
investments. There is plenty
of money in Chicago that could
diverted into the Boundary if
the men who have the money
could be convinced that they
would have a decent run for
their money. I bave examined some very promising looking prospects that fully warrant
money for development but
r.laiin-owners should be reasonable in their demands. If capital is to be induced to invest
hero these owners must not demand too exacting restrictions
in bonding properties. I expect
to be here another two weeks
and I am hopeful that I can
bring back with me one or two
propositions which will commend themselves to investing
friends."
Reports from Poplar Creek
still attract wide-spread attention. Rich new finds are daily
reported and large numbers are
still flocking into that section.
Recently some men, while
prospecting on Lake creek, near
Poplar, came on a lead about
nine feet wide carrying in the
crevices a peculiar yellow ore of
light weight The yellow stuff
showed little or no values in
gold or silver, but an analysis
proved it toautunite, ono of the
very rare uranium ores.-Bound-

foe in forthcoming elections.
Ruminating on the tone of the
electoral voice of Vancouver, as
displayed on Saturday last,
Joseph Martin came to the conclusion that he would retire, not
fora season, but for all time.
He so announced his intention
this morning. When interviewed he said :
"I'm quit, Fm done, I'm tired
I'm disgusted with politics;
don't misunderstand inc. I am
not disgusted at the result of
Saturday's election, but there
has been such dissension in the
party and I have received su
much abuse from my enemies,
and so little thanks from my
friends, that I am glad to avail
myself of the opportunity of retiring from politics."
Mr. Martin  does not think
that the conservatives have a
sufficient following to carry on
the governnient.

Spoiled Ballots at Fernie.
About twenty ballots marked
for Mr. Smith but with the cross
placed not in the disc, but in the
white space following candidate's name were disallowed by
some of the returning officers
as not being in strict compliance
witli the requirement*) of the
statute.       iiizztJdii. ■.■.-■•-<■
In addition a number of
Smith ballots were thrown out
because they were marked with
an ordinary black lead pencil
and not with the red lead
pencil thoughtfully provided by
one of the returning officers.

Young Canada.
It was Mark Twain who said
itwas impossible to outline a
national mind, to anticipate
what would be a national attitude-   It was not impossible I       ■■	
to know that Britain would be will bear watching.
divided over   the question of {Dispatch
tariff, it was not possible to tell
that the United States would
absorb territory to which the
constitution does not apply as it
does to continental territory.
It is impossible to tell just what
future is brewing in the mind
of young Canada. And yet because Young America did succeed in becoming America, with
all its daring and venture, and
heartlessness and sympathy, so
perhaps Young Canada, which
dwells us yet in schools and nurseries, may be expected to imbibe some of the intense Cana-
dianism which is talked in the
schools and the homes, even
though it is not the dominent
note at Ottawa or at London.
No one can view Canadian
youth in the schools or see Canadian children playing on
Winnipeg or Toronto streets
without sensing the gturdy independence which i&developing
in these young Canucks. Canadian children are not those
historical formal and well-bred
creatures which distinguish
England; they are quite as impertinent, quite as much in evidence as are American children.
They have access to the paternal pocketbook us freely as the
children on tliis side of the line,
and they correct their parents'
errors with sang froid thut
equals that of the American
child. And they have one advantage : they associate with
their parents as companions
where the American child associates as a dictator. As a consequence the Canadian child is
jifcearin-j* hie   ful he I'   disCUSS   lit
table or in study the future of
Canada, und however cautious
the father may lie about airing
his democratic opinions on tho
street or on 'change, he waxes
eloquent over Canada's future
as an independent nation when
his son may  hear.    That  son
make it operative in the future.
Belief in Canada instead of in
Britain.,
Mr. E. W. Thomson, an Ottawa correspondent, hus noticed
this spirit in older Young Canada, in the students at McGill
and Laval and Toronto and
Upper Canada universities.
These have heard strong talk of
the Dominion's future, and they
talk it among themselves with
all the abandon and lack of logic
with which an Oxford or a Cam-
.ridge student may talk imperialism. And it does not require logic to make these things
established--it requires enthusiasm. These students will become in five years a strong part
of tho governing body politic.
They will bring a new spirit
into affairs ; they will not scorn
the mother country ; they will
not court the United States ;
they will make Canada it nation
perhaps enter the word Canada
in the title of the king.
A Canadian who can see a
joke is not English, and American jokes are popular on the
other side, just as "Hiawatha"
and "Under the Bamboo Tree"
wero the airs the traveler heard
on tho other side during tho
past summer. The Canadian
does not even insist on Prince
Albert coats and silk hats; he
weal's the American business
man's simple uniform. He has
become intensely American, as
American as we were up to 1898,
and he does not propose annexation in order to remain American. He has taken our jokes
and our styles;he will tako part
of our adjective "American,"
and he is taking our spirit of
independence. Young Canada

AFTER THE BATTLE.
J. R.'Brawn member elect for
the Greenwood electoral district
hns reason tp bo proud of his
triumph Over his opponents in
the recent "contest. A survey
of the returns will show that ho
stands well in every portion of
the riding, being either first or
second at every poll, except
one, leaving third place to
Dr. Spaukio or Mr. Mills. Tlie
supporters of Mr. Mills who
were well organized, had every
confldonco in the election of their
candidate, and the returns show
they had good reasons.for their
confidence. Dr. Spankie was
late in the field, and the change
of date of the election by Premier McBride made him still
later. He ran in the interests
of a party that is not very
strong in tliis riding. The doctor made a splendid fight against
great odds. His supporters, it
is said, claimed he would poll
300 votes, but tlie results of the
election prove their judgment
was at fault.
THE ELECTIONS.
To  those  who    hoped that
stability of government would
result from running provincial
elections on f'ederakparty lines
the outcome of tho trial of
strength between the Conservatives and Liberals on Saturday October 3rd is far from
satisfactory. Full returns will
probably give the conservatives
21 seats, the Liberals 18, the
Socialists 2 and the Labor Liberals 1. ri is e\ ldent that a strong
and stable governnient cannot
be formed by the Conservatives,
and any attc niptto strengthen
their 'position by offers of cabinet positions to' individual
members of: the parties will
likely be resented, and is certain
to meet with the disapproval of
the. electorate. Premier McBride will, of course make an
effort to fill his cabinet and
carry on. the government, but
in this, we think he cannot •'succeed. It is therefore reasonable
to suppose that before many
months another .appeal to'tho
people will be made, when, it is
tobe hoped, some party will
receive a, substantial majority
of the representatives und will
lie in a position to forma strong
government. .'    • . ■

aim Iftck of conHdjSnce Mi his
government expressed iir the
great majority of the constituencies of the province, the duty
of tho Premier is plain enough.
But he will not follow tho path
of obvious duty. On tlie contrary it is extremely ■prtibhble
Mr. McBride will followf the example of hii predecessors,' iwho
are responsible for most of1'tlie
disabilities Under which British
Columbia grohns today. Beaten
froin his position he will probably'try to effect a combination
with some of tho forces sent
out against him, Appeals are
already being addressed to part
of the opposition that it is essential in the interests''of the
country that political turmoil
should cease for a trine.
There can be no peace until
the victory of Saturday is followed to its logical conclusion,
the completeroutof the McBride
forces. The premies declared'
for party lines as a'trierin^'of
bringing to'an end the repeated
slump of politicians from one
side of the house to the other.
The test Mr. McBride craved'has
been applied. It is too late now
to enter a plea for mitigation'
of the sentence on the ground
of patriotism. The members of
the house, we liave'bot the
slightest doubt will stand firmly
by the principles upon which
they were elected. If Premier
McBride refuses-to follow tin-
only course that will bring fixed
and stable government to the
provinsp, ho will be fought-. at
every step he attempts to take.
Eventually the will of the majority will prevail. .
In face of the disabilities under which the liberals of thc
province fought the result of
the election is surprising. The
party went into the fight leader-
less, which it may frankly bt
admitted now, wooiv great handicap. The faith displayed by
the electorate in the condidates
Was the most splendid* tribute
that could possibly be paid tb
their personal attribute!?* At
though in ai great number of
constituencies the liberal forces
were split up by the .presence -in
tho field of representatives !of
the elements whose ligitimate
place is in the ranks of liberalism, the closeness of the contest
in almost every instance proves
how strong the principles of
Liberalism are in the province.
The mouths of lhe braggarts
who have of late been prating
in season and out* of the wane
of liberalism in British Columbia'are closed for a'time.
POLITICAL SITUATION.
Commenting on the provin
cial political situation the Vic
toria Times of Monday says , in
pari):
But; it is fully determined that
the McBride government with
the electoral machinery in its
hands, with   the  patronage of
•the province at its.disposal, and
with the prestige of power to
help it, all of which influences
it made use of to the utmost, is
hopelessly beaten and cannot
carry on. The best the government can hope for is22-seats
out of 42. The probability is
that when the full returns are
in and the partisan idiosyncrasies of returning officers cor-
rested by independent authorities, the government will find
. itself in nn actual minority. At
tho present time of writing 18
Liberals, 17 Conservatives'and
'two Socialists are known to
have been returned. Should
Mr, MeBi'id'e secure the remainder of the doubtful seats succeed
in reconstructing the government and selecting his ministers, he would have but ono of a
niority over the opposition of
Lilierals and Socialists, A majority of ono In a houso of forty-
two members cannot be considered   a   factor  of absolute

■*-r- -Jiurim xrunk Pacific Bill
in the House of Commons n
meiliber ofParliament remarked how Very few up-to-diit<
maps of the Dominion of Cau-
ada were to he found. As n
matter offuct, very few homes,
or even school-houses, possess
such a useful article. It remained for the publishers of the
Family .Hearld and Weekly
Star of Montreal totftke advantage of this, and it will not be
their fault if every home in Canada is not soon in possession of
ono. One of their best premiums this year is a large 22 x 28
in. coloured map of tho Dominion, with a further enlarged map
of this province. It is called a
Quick Reference Map, and is
well named. Tho location and
population of every town and
village Jii seen at a glance.
Every railroad route, including
the Grand'Trunk Pacific, is seen
at once. It ought to be in every
home. Every scholar should
have it The Map is only one
of three valuable premiums
given with that popular paper
this year, j The others are pictures entitled "Heait-brtiken'
and "Harijl to Choqsef'ond are,;
without I exaggeration, ,.t1ie
grandest collection of premiums
ever given with a newspaper at
one dollar per year. That so
much can be given for a dollar
is marvellous.
The publishers of The Family
Herald and Weekly Star, of
Montreal, warn the public regarding an offer made by certain papers in which another
Montreal paper, with a some
what similar name to The Family Herald, is offered in a clubbing combination. Itis reported to the publishers that in
some coses the offer has been
accepted under the impression
it was The Family Herald and
Weekly Star that would be received. The paper in question
hus no connection whatever
with:the Family Herald and
Weekly Star. It ia the Family
Herald and Weekly Star that
is offering the handsome premium pictures and large coloured map of the Dominion as a
premiums. The word "FAMILY" shou|d bo used when addressing that paper. This caution should have the effect of
putting people on  their guard.

One haa but to look back through history to aee how closely related la the
forest to human vitality. It waa in the
forests of Theasaly that the early
Greeks received their energy that later
flowered into genius. It was the forest
dwellers of Germany that conquered
decadent Rome and later gave to Spain
the vigor that swept back the Moor
•nd brought under her flag almost the
whole known world. But today what
la Greece, what Is Italy, what Is Spain?
They have been stripped of their for
csta, those nurseries of vigor, and their
decay has aet In. Everywhere the law
holds good. It Is ln tbe forest tbat the
manhood la nourished which builds up
gnat civilizations. But cities arise,
;1treea are swept away, and the Inevitable decline sets In. Forests once destroyed cannot return, and over all the
sites of ancient civilization are blowing

FLINT OF YARMOUTH.
Mm! AatltkHlt of Iko ttm M* Kay
Follow to the II-him.
Then Is precedent In these matters,
and the clerkship In tho Mouse of
Commons having long been held by a
Novo, Scotian, tho knowing ones predict that Flint of Yarmouth will bt
Bourlnnt's successor, writes II.F.O.
in Toronto Star.
Mr. Flint is in many ways the direct antithesis of .Sir John.  He is  a
tall, spurs man; Sir John was portly.    He wears   a    moustnche;    Sir
John was clean shaven.   He is  well
provided    wiih grey hair; Sir John
was very bald.    In manner Mr. Flint
if stow   and formal; Sir John was
nervous and alert.    Mr. Flint speaks
In measured tones; Sir John's utterance wa». ruptd and jerky.   Mr. Flint
is a lawyer by profession,    and,   to
thnt extent hia training   will   help
him in the new oflice.    He will,    no
doubt, bo able to digest quickly that
great   bundle of ruin and sub-rules
which    is     known as parliamentary
procedure.   The lei-nl mind will   be
able to distinguish thc great underlying principles from the multitudinous sub-sc tions which often seem to
contradict diriTily what has gone beforo.   At the bottom, no doubt, common sense operates, hut It t:ilcs .an
ncutn and discriminating Intellect' to
lix the correlation nnd proportion ol
aU the*," technicalities.    Much of the
parliamentary procedure in all coun.
tries has been contrived to give tae-
tirinne n clinnce.   There are rules by
which a ticklish     question can    ho
forced to tho Iront; and oilier rules
by which it ran I* suppressed.    I'he
adroit parliamentarian is recognized
by   his knowledge of thiyu matters,
and    nearly   every politician of uny
consequence   prides     hlin.self   on hit
adroitness   in using that knowledge.
Mr. Flint being a lawyer, and having
a lawyer's thoroughness, will doubtless   arm himself ca|eu-pio to withstand all comers.   Tn arecpting a position which doe* not permit him to
take part in the debatos, prohibition
loses a skillful and earnest advocate.

The school where thorough'work is done; where the rea«|
is always given; where confidence is developed; where ita
kkki'ing is taught exactly as books are being kept in busing
where Shorthand is scientific; where penmanship is ar
best; where merit is the standard ; where the training in
il Sekvick, Tklkoraphy, English and Cartooning wakes i
students, develops their powers and teaches them    howto
successful.   No argument is so eloquent as   the record!
things well done.   No mortgage can corrupt,  no thief
break through and steal the knowledge of How to Do.   WW
you know what a school can do for, you by what it has clone *
others is it better to trust to luck?  Is it wiser to guess?
