MS Secretary.
Hit New Piper, "The Commoner," Makes lit
The first number of the Commoner, the weekly paper published
jby William J. Bryan, has made its
appearance. It is a neat appearing
sheet typographically. The salutatory says:
WebBter defines a commoner as
'one of the common people.' The
name has been selected for this
paper because the commoner will
endeavor to aid the common people
in the protection of their rights, the
advancement of their interests and
the realization of their aspirations.
"It is not necessary to apologize
for the use of a term which distiii-
guiahes the great body of the population from a comparatively few
who for one reason or another
withdraw themselves from sympathetic connection with their fellows.
"The common people do not constitute an exclusive society���they
are not of the four hundred; any
one can become a member if he is
willing to contribute by brain and
muscle to the nations strength mid
greatness. Only tho^e are barred
���and they are barred by their
own choice���who imagine themselves made of a superior kind of
clay and who deny the equality of
all before the law.
"A rich man, who has honestly
acquired his wealth and who is not
afraid to entrust ils care to the laws
made by his fellows, can count
himself among the common people,
while a poor man iB not realy one
of them if he fawns before a plutocrat and has no higher ambition
than to he a courtier.
"The Commoner will be satisled
if, by fidelity to the common people
it proves its right to the name
which it has chosen."
The Spokesman-Review, in corn-
men with all great papers bound
up with the interests of those who
deify the Dollar and would enslave
the masses to this god, attacks the
above utterances in Mr. Bryan's
salutatory. But that is nothing
remarkable. It always has fawned
upon those who sought cla*B distinction and frowned down Ihe
common people. It has not forgotten the occasion when it was compelled to dismount from it its high
horse hy organized labor. Then
again it probably ia jealous. With
a great Chicago hanker back
of the Spokesman-Review and
years of effort of the ablest brains
the banker's millions could command, with a deceitful cinch game
of two papers with pretended different political opinions, Mr. Bryan
starts off with double the circula
tion of the Spokane hybrid publications. Mr. Bryan expects, and
will not be disappointed in having
to contend against the combined
efforts of those of the "exclusive society" for tbe common people.wbom
God, too, loves or He would not
have made so many of them.
Notwithstanding this celfish opposition, Mr. Bryan's paper in a few
month* will be read by more people of all classes, in one week, than
peruse the Spokane critic in six

The Silvertonian says:
"There are about enough people
in each of our towns to make one
good congregation, but with the
field in each split up hetween four
churches they must draw on the
widow's mite, repeat the miracle
of the loaves and fishes or withdraw from the field, for the towns
here can support but one church
in each."
The Silvertonian does not say
how many rumshops there are in
"our towns."
Phoenix has 21 grogshops. What
would these places do if the union
miners should go on a strike and
the mines should close down for a
few months ? Labor and saloons

The Silvertonian complains, justly, of the government methods of
advertising public business in the
following manner:
"A scarcely legible type written
notice on a sheet of flimsey letter
paper, pinned on the wall in the
PostOffice, was the only intimation that the tax-payers of Silverton had of an Assessment Court
recently held in Kaslo. This is a
fair sample of the way in which
public business is conducted by
the present "business government"
Matters directly affecting the people are slighted and economized on
and the savings doubly squandered
iu publishing lavishly such useless
notices as those which recently appeared concerning the bubonic
While there is good ground tor
"knocking'' on this subject, it may
be said on behalf of the present
government that it is only following a long and out-of-date custom,
which should have been remedied
long ago. It does look like "small
potatoes" to see the government of
a great empire like British Columbia sticking up a lonely type or
hand-written notice warning th*
people of their dues to the government, just to avoid a little advertising outlay the benefit whereof would
go the country printer, as well as
give the people a more complete service. The province is indebted more
to the country press for its rapid
development and growth than to
any other one influence, and we believe that the local notices from the
government to the people should
be ordered placed in its columns.
No sensible business man would
think of confining his Advertising
to scribbled papers on a postotficv
Then again, look at the law that
requires an assignee in Phoenix to
publish his notice in a Rowland
daily, when a weekly paper is
published in the community most
affected. What excuse can be given
for such a regulation, other than
an intentional injury to the country paper and a favor to tbe city
journal ?
The law is unreasonable and unjust, and should lie amended.

Leo. T. English Shoots William and Thomas
At Vernon, Friday evening, Jan.
19th, Leo. T. English shot and instantly killed ThoinuB Carson and
-seriously wounded William Carson,
who was endeavoring to protect his
brother. Thus. Carson is said to
have been a drinking man, which
had caused trouble between himself
and wife, and English, who id her
brother, had taken his sister's part.
The fatal result was the outcome of
a celebration of pence negotiations
at the bur of King Alcohol. So in
this case, as in nearly all murder
cases, whisky, the forerunner of the
missionary, was at the bottom of it.
The shots are said to have been find
in self-defense, English having been
struck with a club in the hands of
the murdered man. English is a

Action   Taken   by  the   U.   S,   Senate In
Matter ot Brown's Claims.
R. E. L. Brown, tbe well knnwn
mining man, is having his Witfoi'i-
tein claims, involving between five
and six million dollars, advanced
by tbe United States government.
Senator Turner in Washington, has
offered a resolution requiring the
President to transmit to the Senate
information of what steps have
been taken by the state department
to protect the rights of R. E. L.
Brown in tbe matter of his claim
against the South African Republic
together with copies of all correspondence and papers relating thereto.   The resolution was adopted.
In presenting the resolution Senator Turner made a statement regarding the case. Brown, the Senator said, went to Soli ill Africa
eight years ago as an American engineer. He tiled a number of gold
claims in Witfontein, following
American methods in bis work. He
was deprived of ihe claims by order
of the Transvaal authorities, and
instituted suit against them foil 1,-
The case was decided in South
African courts in Brown's favor bis
contention being upheld ou every
point, notwithstanding the order
of President Kruger withdrawing
the claims held by Brown from location. The judgement of the
court incensed President Kruger,
and the volksrmid bad the court
removed summarily from office.
The officers of the new Court dismissed the case of Mr. Brown and
he was invited to institute a new
suit. Realizing that the new court
was packed against him, he decided
to appeal the case to his own government for justice, with a view to
securing his rights as defined hy

Mr. Turner says tbe claims of
Mr, Brown are worth $5,000,000 or
.$(1,000,000. In view of the governmental changes that have taken
place in the Transvaal, Mr. Turner
said the purpose of his resolution
was to press on Great Britain the
merit <if the claim of Mr. Brown,
mid to ascertain what steps had
been taken by this government in
regard to it since Great Britain had
assumed the responsibility of sovereignly over the territory.

Widows'and Children's Relief Fund.
Iu no part of the British domains
has there beell the slightest sign of
disloyally to the Hag or even indifference on I lie part of the whole
people in Great Britain's South African troubles. Ou the contrary
they have freely offered themselves
ami their means to ihe Imperial
government. The best evidence of
the earnestness of the great English
heart in this snuggle is the manner
iu which provision is being made
fur the tviilows and children of the
soldiers who met and are meeting
death on African battle HeliU.
By different methods enormous
slims of money have been contributed by the peopie. Ihe Dull}' .Mali
of Loudon raised in shilling contributions tlie large sum of $1,180,-
000. With iliis relief has been
given to 2,353 widows, anil 2,700
children. The full scheme was carried out in 250 cases, in each of
