���MONEY MAKING.
"How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! And to got understanding rather than silver."���A Proverb.
Thore is a law of supply in the unseen
which holds good for whatsoever man
desires, for he cannot possibly desire
that which is not obtainable; this at
first may appear a paradox, but man,
in other words, cannot possibly evolve
a thought as to the possibility of anything that is not possible, so that, tor
instance, whon he thinks of porpetual
motion it means that perpetual motion
is a possibility which will bo demonstrated some day lator in the evolutionary stage of tho world. As between
two persons, the one desiring sincerely
spiritual knowledge, while the other
asks for wealth in financial affaire, the
above law applies so that each will get
their respoetivo wish in about tho
samo proportions. But many will say
that they have wished hard for years
for money and they are poorer than
ever; it ts necessary to explain, therefore, that from the occult point of view
this is not man's first life on this earth,
YOUNG-JACKSON.
It gives us much pleasure to chronicle tho marriage of Mr. David J.

according to the law of cause and
elToct, thoy who have failed to obtain
ihe rlehos they so desire, have in the
previous lifo sot in motion, by their
own acts, physic forces whieh militate
against t.hem now, such as say, having
money and making bail use of it, falling lo help tlio poor or may be an indifference to it, so that present conditions aro but an effect of a long previous cause. To obtain an intelligent
idea of all this one must let go all preconceived narrow ideas of life aud
grasp the great vi lal truth that we are
not hero in a hazy sort of way to mako
money, but rather to gain experience
in joy and In sorrow; having got t/iat
far, it will be somewhat easier to understand that what some people are
experiencing now in this life, was pos
sibly what you, the reader, went
through in your previous earthly pilgrimage, sothat in the case of money
it is in conformity with Tho Law that
thoso who havo it not shall gain great
experience along the lines of. sultoring
and want, while they who havo it, well,
thoy have earned It for what it is
worth lo them, anil that is nil ! The
fundamental principle of Divine Justice
is embodied In thu Paulino vital statement that "whatsoever a man soweth
that shall he also reap;" there is uo
getting away from this any moro than
for a man to attempt to run away from
bit shadow and to understand this fully,
to make it one's own, is to silence forever tho murmerlngs of discontent of
one's lot anil that chafing under what
Is ealliid the Decreo of Providence.
While lt is right and proper for man
to labor and accumulate money for
those dependent on him and his old
days, there Is all the difference between this and tho mnd desire for
WSOltb, to the exclusion of all else; for
most assuredly it is insanity, from tho
fact that those that way inclined are
ignorant of the valuelessness of their
accumulations, should th'jy get them.
The spectacle of a man tearing around
at high pressure morning, noon and
night, with no thought about anything
except the "what there is in it" point
of view, and rushing headlong into a
premature grave, is truly the feeblest
and saddest sight one can behold, for
at best if he succeeds (and very few do)
bo has laid up a treasure where thieves
break in and steal and goes hence without a glimmer of knowledge appertaining to the beyond, save what he may
have remembered to havo lisped et his
mother's knee?
To be continued.

largo sums have been raised for the assistance of the sick aud needy.

J. C. Eaton, the well known Sloean

gomery. Mr. Eaton is now opening up
the Madison group, one milo above
Sandon, which he says is only a prospect.
In telling of the prosperity whieh has
como to that section ho made a striking
contrast between   conditions when   he
first went there und those existing now.
"I have just come out of the Slocan,''
suid ho, "and tho mines are  producing
more than ever.   Tlio advance in  the
price of silver has mado mines  pay to
work which did not pay  before.     The
silver-lead   portion   of   the   Kootenay
OOUntry is producing a great deal more
than the jjold portion)   in   fact,   inoj'o
money will come out  of   that district
than will come out of the Klondike this
yoar.   The Payne is  shipping 3100,000

leBs   than   $(100,000   in    tho   first   six
months of this year. ' The Whitewater
is   pntting   in   a   new   mill.     On tho
Whitewater Deep It. E. Brown   is putting in a new compressor  plant, and is
starting a large tunuel from the Kaslo
creek levels    I should  think it,  would
strike ore at a depth of 700 feot vertically below the present workings.    The
Lust Chance is putting in   a new tram,
which strikes tlio railroad a mile and a
hulf above Sandon, and   has   become a
wonderful  producer.     Mr." Brown   is
building up the   town  of Whitewater,
and has put up u   house of 16   rooms at
the mine.    When 1 wont   to   seo   him
thc other day ho asked mo if   I wanted
to take a bath, saying he had two bath
rooms.    Why,   1   built   that   trail   to
Whitewater with my   own bauds when

A combination has boen mado between tho ECaslo tk Slocan railway and
the International Navigation -S; Trading company,which operates the steamers on Kootenay lake. This means that
the new eompuny will also control the
Nelson ss, Liedling'oii railroad, and will
probably build Liiat road ana extend it
to Bonner's Perry and probably to Spokano. It will also extend il to Lardo,
in tho other direction, which means
great traffic, for tho Lardo Ion large
bodies ol low grade ore. The Kaslo A.
Blooan railway hus been the salvation
of tlmt country. 1 paid $40 a ton for
my first shipment, of oro from the
Whitewater mine to Kaslo, and it cost

It is only seven years ago on the 21st
of this month that tho first stampede
took place from Ainsworth to the Slocan country. Two prospectors named

about the assay, but took Bielenberg
in with him and left Seaton. Carpenter and Bielenberg went to Nelson and
got a Peterboro canoe and went up the
Siociln river. A day or two later the
assayer told Seaton what the assay was.
Seaton then gathered what is now
called the Noble Five crowd and went
off with them on tho night of Septem-.
bor 21st. They located extensions on
the Payne, the Noble Five and , other
claims. When they returned to Ainsworth they gavo their specimens to

Duty ou Lead Ores.
The San Francisco Mining and Scien--
tific Press, discussing the duty imposed
on load ore and pig lead by the United
States government does   not hold out
much hope of the duty  being  removed
or even  modified.     Though   not  put
plainly forth tbe Pro. r: leads it   to   be
inferred that a Canadian export duty
on lead ores would not be advantageous
to Canada ami w* are  treated again to
a fiat and stale argument   that "under
our existing tariff" that is, the United
States   tariff,   it   pays   the   Canadian
miner better to ship the ore across the
boi'der than to smelt it at   home.    Tho
Press loaves this   part of   tho question
there without any   attompt   to   make
this very obstruse   twitter  plain.     It
then goes on to say that American miners would be pleased-rather than otherwise to have the Canadian government
put au export duty upon tho ores referred to.   Probably so, but   tho   owners
of smelters and refineries   would .not.
However,  that   is   not   tho   question.
Probably if the duty s'hould bo Imposed
the Press would   sing   another   tune.
What Canadian mine owners   havo   to
consider   is   not   what   will     prevent
United States sineltevs   and   refineries
from deriving most o(   the   profit, but
how best they can a-.-tto derive the full
benefit of the working  of their properties without being BUbjetft to tariff   exactions.    It has been  the ��� stock   argument of   interested   persons   that   tho
natural market for Canadian ores  and
lead products is the United States, but
when a natural market imposes restrictions wliich are all in its own Interests,
that market becomes an unnatural one
for tho   foreign   producer, and   it   behooves him to look  around for a   mure
proQahle one.    By treating  their  own
ores in their own countrv and exerting
themselves to find a market, mine own -
ers in this province   can   place   themselves in a much belter   position  than
they ariv in now.   Thero   aro   markets

The rails are laid to Kootenay lake.
The iron on tho Crow'.-. Nest Pass road
now extends from Lethbridge, s\lta., to
the Kootenay lake in Wost Root-nay,
a distance of 300 miles. A little more
than a year ago thore was nothing more
than Indian trails between many of the
points along the line, and last evoning
a party arrived in Cranbrook travelling
in all modern comfort in a well equipped sleeper with a dining car. On the
17th July of last year the first work
was done on the road at Lethbridge.
Last night, October 5th, the last spike

New York. Oot. 10.���A dispatch to tlio
Herald from Washington says:
Tin' United States may submil a diplomatic protest through Franco to tbe
Spanish government against its action
in sending an auxiliary cruiter loado.1
with arms and ammunition to tho Philippines. In nny event Uie mutter ii
under consideration and it is believed
has been called to the attention of tbo
American commissioners in Paris.
The cruiser in question is the Buenos
Ayres, 'belonging to the Spanish auxiliary navy, which, us Rear Admiral Dewey reported to the navy department several days ago, is due to arrive in Singapore October 13.
It is appreciated by the authorities
that .Spain ha.s tho same right in tlie
eyes of International law to send reinforcements to ilio Philippines as this
government 1ms, und uny protest will Lin
uf a diplomatic character nnd simply designed 1*1 make it plain that the continuance of the voyage of the Buenos Ayres
is objectionable.
On the other hand, n member of the
cabinet tonight said nil the Philippine
islands except Manila are in the nominal
possession of S|s,tin, und that it is undoubted that tlie Madrid government, if
it, deems advisable to do su, bus the right
to send troops tn the island-, to subdue
any insurrection that may occur.
Another member who talked of the
matter with the president admitted that
Spain has the moral right to dispatch reinforcements to tlie Philippines but ss
ilie forces of our government nre in control, it is within its authority to prevent
such reinforcements reaching their destination. However, it. is not expected
that tiie matter will go beyond a protest,
if it goes that far.

NEED EXTRA COVER AT NIGHT.
The   lllood   ( Ireululen   I.e.*   nt   M it lit
Thnn   In   Ihe  Dn*. time.
The main use of tlie coverings at night
is to give the body the warmth that is
lost by reduced circulation of the hlou.l.
When the body lies down it is the intention of nature that it should rest, und
lhat   the   heart   e-peeially   should   be   re-
Ifeved temporarily of its regular work.
So tlmt organ makes ten strokes a minute less than when the body is in 1111 upright posture,   This means 000 strokes in
till minutes.
Therefore, in the eight hours that a
man usually spends in taking his night's
rest the heart is saved nearly 6,000
Strokes. As it pumps six ounces of Mm J
with ouch stroke, it lifts 80,000 ounces
less of blood in this night's session than
it would during the day when a man is
usually in an upright position.
Now Ihe body is dependent for its
warmth on the vigor of thc circulation,
and, as the blood flows so much more
slowly through the veins when one is
lying down, the warmth lost in the reduced circulation must be supplied by
txtra coverings.

as.they ure accompanied by their families. However, u sm-.ill number of Indians could do much damage before being Captured or killed, for the swamps
and lakes are so numerous and the general conditions such that the soldiers un-
acijuiiiuted with their surroundings would
be unable to cope with  the savages.

Xew York, Oct. 10.���A dispatch from
Washington says:
Secretary Alger has sent an answer to
the war Investigating committee, which,
in the words of one of the commissioners,
"docs not answer.''
"In the lirst place," said the commissioner, "we had asked who had been in -
llueiitiul ill selecting tlie camp sites. The
only answer vouchsafed is that (ieneral
Lee selected the camp at Jacksonville. 1
do not think any other camp is mentioned. But this omission will be remedied
in the supplement-- report for which we
will call on the secretary."
Secretary Alger's answer contains
uliout 3000 words on the selection of Tampa us a point of embarkation. Rear Admiral Sampson i. dispatch as to the euu.se
of hastening trooops to Santiago. Commodore Kemey's dispatch as to the cause of
the delay of troops. The discussion of

Constantinople, Oct. 10.���The ultimatum of the powers ou the subject of the
evacuation of the island of Crete by the
Turkish troops, declared that should the
sultan refuse to yield he will lose his
sovereign rights in Crete. This has irritated Turkish circles. They call the action
of the powers unjust and hope is entertained that Russia will decline to cooperate with the other powers in which case
it is believed the latter will not resort to
extremities, ln diplomatic circles comment bus been excited by the fact that
the censor permitted the newspapers here
to reproduce the dispatch in whicli ltussia
replying to Oreat Britain declared she
wus opposed to violent measures and
would protest beforehand against their

attempt to make Great Britain alone responsible for uny coercion.

THK PRIENDS OP KASLO.
Now that our contemporary litis
discerned the halo of sanctity on tbe
brow of thc dreamy political aspirant
of Kaslo buy. and crowned him and his
eutourago, amid Pharisean shouts as
���'the fi'iend.3 of Kaslo'' In contradistinction to those who are not of tbat
'following and are therefore thc "enemies of Kaslo."  It is opportune to take
Blue Ridge and Woodbury croek let
severely alone; and yet if the C. P. R.
intend building to Whitewater, and
draw away from Kaslo a considerable
tonnage, bow much more will they tap
the Lardo-Duncan and draw it northward when it suits their purpose to do
30. Fields look green from afar, but it
is more politic to concentrate our
efforts to tho development of those
properties known to be rich and practically within our gates, rather than
spread abroad for returns which, to
say the least,' are problematical.
Boards of trade, chambers of commerce, associations and the like are
organized ostensibly for the purpose of
beneliting thc coinmcrco of a district
or community. With us seemingly,
tbe masterly apathy of tho majority
has practically delegated the manipulation of tho whole concern to the
president and a fow "friends of Kaslo"
and which has helped in no small measure to bring us to the present business
status.
It is not so much the fact of anyone
having tbe necessary inlluence to get
public monies expended whore tbe benefit will accrue to himself rather than to
the publio, to which wo take exception,
for that is natural in a way and decidedly fashionable; it is this posing as
'���friends of Kaslo,"this touching disinterestedness to one's own affairs thut
has characterized the doings of the
of that farcial body called
the Lardo-Duncan association, and the
a glance over tbo doings of the Board | sooner is is blotted out of existence the
better it will be for all  concerned  and
nearly as long. Wo desire to bring
this matter to tbo attention of tho government as requiring immediate consideration.
ln a moment of childlike trust, common to our nature, and while absent
from the oity last woek we endorsed
the Kootonaian's article "Enemies of
Kaslo." It has since been made manifest to us thnt it was inspired in that
small'but restless circle of local politicians who have not as yet fully
grasped the fact that Turnorism is
dead, and there is no more dough in
sight!

association, so that we may soe what
"the friends of Kaslo" havo done,
under the direction ol such light and
leading, towards developing the trade
of Kaslo, for wliich purpose it was ostensibly formed.
Last spring we find on record that a
meeting was called for the purpose of
discussing the advisability of building
a trail. ot wagon road grade, as a continuation of the Montezuma road, some
twelve miles ��p tho South Fork with a
view to help in tho development of
what was known to be a shipping district. Singular to relate the meeting
in question met with a most marked
apathy from the president and bis satellites and practically fell through.
Somewhat later, there was, howovor,
considerable activity among these
same members of the association over
the question of ex-pending some $10,000
(thou in sight) on certain improvements
in the Ppper Duncan country and tbey,
with feverish anxiety, not forgetting
of course the benefit that would accrue
to the trade of Kaslo, gave ready con'

C0KRBNT COMMENT
The size and frequency of tho consignments of goods which daily arrive
at the local express office, from the departmental stores in the east, cannot
but prove discouraging to the local
merchants. The growth of thia trado
evidences that many of tho people of
Nelson are either blind or careless of
the suffering and hardship wliich the
departmental store has entailed upon
society. It has boon demonstrated
ovor and ovor again that many of the
so-called bargains of tho departmental
store aro founded upon deceptions of
trado, or represent the unpaid labo-*
bills of helpless women and girls; but
tbe old ninety-nine cent dodgo has apparently lost none of its charm,'and as
a result thousands of dollars, which
should go to the merchants hore, are
sent out of the city to mercantile con-
corns wliich do not pay their employees
sufficient to feed their budios, and
whose scale of wages is so uniformly
low as to put a premium upon immorality for those in their omploy. Thoso
who buy from departmental stores may
share in their questionable profits, but

Tbe following changes in the British
Columbia mining laws should bo carefully studied by those interested in
mining iu this Province:
First of those refers to   the  location
of fractions.    In nil fractious surveyed j Mabony, free miner's   oertifioate
from now on, whether stake "
or not,  tbe   surveyor may   adopt
boundary   lines   of   the    surrounding
claims, provided no side exceeds  1600
feet in length,    ln other words, tho locator Is entitled to the  vacant   ground
that   bo  claims,   even if   bo does not,
������take il, ir. such a manner as to include
it all, whit 11 be seldom does.
By a recent decision of the courts u
prospector lo*t a claim because oi lu-
niiiiiu ro 11 eniv tbe post necessary to
mark the  location.   The amendment
provides that in cases where claim*, arc
Staked above flic timber line, or the
prospector can not secure the noees-
Miry pjftts, be may erect monuments of
earth or stone.
In staking an extension the posts arc
often plantc.i so as lo form a Wedge-
shapo fraction between two ends of .the
two olalms. These fractions have often Incurred great expense, not only In
recording and surveying, but in oases
where tbey carry tbe lead, and thus be- j 27"3l)
come of such value as to promote litl-'

We need all the advertising matter
wo can get. Tt is :i well known fact
that advertising is the mainstay and
profit of any newspaper. Our old advertisers know full well how much
read and widely circulated Tho News
baa boon. Its popularity us a groat
moral weekly, reaching, as it docs,
every homo in the Slocan. has been a
subject of eomment, hot only amongst
the general public but in journalistic
circles. Advertising in a good live
paper is always profitable. Mining
men should support Tbo Nows moro,
for it never lets a chanoe pass to make
known the work dono on prospects in
this vicinity. The News now goes into
many mines, but we wish to seo it in
all. Wo regret to Bay that some few
of our old advertisers have .bovvn signs
of deserting us fora time.offering as an
excuse the present dullness of trado.
It is a known fact that the greatest advertisers in thc world Increase their
advertising account when businoss is
dull, and there Is no business that cannot be benefitted by advertising.

The astonishing rapidity with which
the mechanical arts are advancing in
America Is Illustrated by the development of the use of compressed air, especially as applied to hand tools, Tools
driven by compressed air bave largely
supplanted even the simplest mechanical devices In the railroad shops of Chicago. Screws are driven by this power; nuts are turned; holes iu steel and
wood are drilled, and iu many other
ways has tbe use of pneumatic tools
become not only a convenience but a
necessity. They can be handled with
ease and perform t|ie work more quickly
aud wlili less expenditure of labor than
by the old process. Man's power of
adapting the forces of nature to his
ends has no limit apparently. Great
strides already have been made, but
lt Is no unwise assumption to say that
no more than a beginning has been
made. The marvels of Invention are
bewildering In variety and scope, but
still man Is not content and leaps from
triumph to triumph.
It is said that tbe Sultan of Turkej
In declining to recognize the demands
of the United States for Indemnity foi
outrages committed on American mis
s!on establishments In Turkey, cited
tbe attitude of the United Stntes in
some cases where claims were preferred by foreign governments for damages sustained by riots by their citizens lu this country. This is calculated
to set Americans to thinking. Wo
have been so accustomed to regarding
the unspeakable Turk as a semi-bar
liarlau that It is something of a surprise to find 111m  quoting    modern In
stances   mil   International   precedent
against a claim for damages to Amor
lean citizens In Turkey, and 'it Is a
severe jolt to our national pride to find
that these precedents have lieen fur
nlsbed by ourselves. The Sultan probably referred to the mobbing of Chinese several years ago In Colroado, Ne
vada. Wyoming and Washington, In
which several Chinamen were killed
and considerable of their property was
destroyed. Probably he also referred
to the killing of several Italians by a
mob ln New Orleans, for which the
United States government disavowed
any liability in damages, though It did
afterwards voluntarily pay an indemnity, while protesting against any obligation to do so. The citing of these
cases by tbe Sultan was decidedly
smart, to say the least, and tbey may
prove embarrassing to this government.
Iu the event of the United States
holding any considerable numlier of
tbe Islands over wliich the flag Is now
floating, the extent of the emigration

n.alter of a good deal of Interest. From
the statements made In some of tbe
newspapers it would appear tbat an
exodus of American citizens Is to take
place to Cuba, Porto Rico and tbe
Philippine Islands. Possibly this expectation may be realized to some extent, but It Is not probable that, bow-
ever much of the wealth of the country may seek Investment In profitable
enterprises lu those tropical Islands,
auy important migration of Americans
will follow. It Is a law as old BA the

Mining men and residents of the t'occr

company and the Empire State-Idaho

latter is thc company organized by F.

These mines are at Wardner in the
Coeur d'Alenes.    The plaintiff company
owns the Stems*, inder claim, and is asserting that it holds, through this claim,
the  apex  of 't'he great ore  body of tlie
defendant company.
The case was sel for hearing at Pocatello. Idaho, last week. The Bunker Hill
people asked for an injunction, which
was refused by Judge Beatty after a lull
hearing.

for an injunction and an accounting, The
temporary injunction having been refused, the ca.se will now be tried upon its
merits in its regular turn in the federal
court.
If the Hunker Hill and Sullivan people
are successful in their suit it will stop
one of the largest dividend paying coin-
panics in the Coeur d'Alenes. Tlie company is a new one but it. has been paying dividends from the first month of iu
organization last spring. The company
includes some large capitalists in New-
York, where it maintains offices in the
Stokes  building, on  Cedar street.
While the Last Chance is the best developed claim in the company's group, il
is only one of 17 claims which lie either
upon the great Wardner ledge or contiguous to it.
The case is another of those tedious
ones involving extra lateral rights, and
since the contestants arc both large corporations and able to fight long and with
determination, it is predicted that litigation will be long drawn out.
The Tyler-I.uMt  dinner.
The October session of the United

Struck   n   Vein.
A contract was concluded recently between the Princess Maud Company and
the .Mm Blaine Company of   Republic
CSmp by which the l'rincess Maud people
are permitted to start a tunnel on Jim
Hlaine ground to tap the Princess Maud
vein.     The ledge on tlier Princess comes
close to the Jim Hlaine side line. A tunnel will he started on the Hlaine ground
and will run .'.00 feet, through it. Its total
length will In* about .'1H2 feet and it will
tap the Princess Maud vein at a depth of
about 2i2 feet. This tunnel will encounter the vein in aibout the center of the
claim so that drifting both ways may
be undertaken.
News came from Republic last week
that the crosscut tunnel started on Jim
Hlaine ground to reach the l'rincess Maud
vein had entered a ledge on the .lim
Hlaine whicli has never been opened be
fore. At last accounts the tunnel was
two and a half feet in quartz witli no
wall in sight. 'This strike is close to the
liiitle & I'..i-i,,11 end line and indicates
that the latter property also has a vein
which has never before been prospected.
Rich Ore on Ailmlriil Dewey.
Arthur Webb, A. J. Kurlette and Ole
Tufeson have obtained good values on ore
from the Admiral l>i*wcy, a claim which
they located last May on the north side
of the Soutli Pork two miles below Os-
bttrn, Idaho. On the surface they obtained au assay of $lli per ton, and from
the bottom of a _5-foot shaft they took
ore that yielded at tlie rate of 11.7 ounces
in silver and 2.2 Ounces in gold. The
shaft will be continued until the lead is
found in solid formation, it being more or
less broken SO far, and if it then makes
the showing it does now they will go
down the hill to where they can run a
800-foot tunnel, cutting the ledge about
���2.">U feet deep.
HlH   I.lnli.s Strike.
What is confidently claimed to lie the
most important strike ever made in thc
gold bell of the Coeur d'Alenes was that
on the Crown Point recently. This claim
is situated at the. head of one prong of
'Trail gulch, on whicli sonic of the richest
placers of the early days were found, lying partly oh the Trail and partly on the
I'ritchiird creek side of the ridge, dividing them. Rich ore has lieen found on
it for years, sometimes apparently in
place, but usually a.s limit., and when
considerable  bodies.were  found    further
exploitation haa always proved them to
be merely fragments of the ledge broken
off.

up his 10-stamp mill to work ihc Crown
Point and adjoining properties, but al-

of slime which they secrete. Tlie eel has
a very liberal share, and an ordinary flsii
of two pounds weight will usually have
a coating of slime a thirty-second of an

when it is once lodged the process of its
reproduction is very rapid. It soon extends over the gills, and kills the flsh.
The primary purpose of the slime of the
fish is to reduce the friction when in motion, and increase its speed. It also
serves as a cushion to the scales, which
it thus protects from many injuries.

THE EXCELLENCE OF SYKUP OF FIGS
is due not only to the originality and
simplicity of the combination, but also
to the care and skill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes

Co. only, and we wish to impress upon
all the importance of purchasing the
true and original remedy. As the
genuine Syrup of Figs is manufactured
by the Cai.ifohnia Fig .Svrup Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding the worthless
imitations manufactured by other parties. Tbe high standing of the California Fig Svkup Co. with the medical profession, and the satisfaction
which the genuine Syrup of Figs has
given to millions of families, makes
the name of the Company a guaranty
of the excellence of its remedy. It is
far in advance of ail other laxatives,
as it acts on the kidneys, liver and
bowels without irritating or weakening them, and it does not gripe nor
nauseate. In order to get its beneficial
effects, please remember the name of

It would bo interesting to the geno-
r al public to know by whom the Kootenaian'a astute editor is Inspired in his
newly found zeal in behalf of Kaslo's
prosperity, and from what sources he
has drawn his knowledge of "the spirit
of littleness, the bickerings and deadening contentions that have disgraced
this favored City of Kaslo." It would
please many of us also to know what
plan be would suggest by which "tho
bitterness wliich sprung from tho recent political absurdities and recriminations" may bo "mellowed into affable
toleration and good-will." No more
offensive words were written or sj'oken
during tho campaign than appeared in
the columns of the Kootenaian. Would
the editor of that paper have these
who were maligned, slandored and insulted in its columns approach the then
editor and beg his pardon for venturing to take offenco at and resent his
heaped up insults'-' Will the present
editor of the Kootenaian name a single
instance wherein personal "bickerings" within tho Board of Trade have
prevented action quick and determinative, when the prosperity of tho city
and its material advancement wore
under consideration? While the victorious'in the recent campaign may
well afford to be magnanimous, does it
follow that they must go hat in hand
to tho defeated and say that they regret having taken offence bocause of
tho abuse which was heaped upon themV
There may be dill'eroncos within the
membership of the board of trade. But
all the same each side may be honest
ir its cause and sincero in its criticisms.
There is certainly no suBicient reason
why one set of men should say to tho
other, "let us compromise our 'differences in the interests of Kaslo. Here
are my views, subscribe to them and
advocate them and we will be gloriously harmonious." The very suggestion
soems ridiculous, yet, this is the kind
of harmony which tho Kootenaian
seems to suggest in the interests of
those who apparently inpiro its utterances. The Kootenaian must be
practical as well as civilly loyal. It
must not covertly sneer at the ono side
in any discussion, because forsooth the
views promulgated may not be along
the lines which the Kootenaian management, an1 its personally ambitious
advisers may si: forth. There must be
a proper and just discrimination between individual conceit and fairly
considered civic advancement. It is
manifestly unfair to accuse any body
of men, wbo aro themselves in the majority, of "littleness" beeauso of their
refusal to bend the knee to any little
tin god, however great he may be "in
his mind.".
Yours truly,
Kasloite
