Wm. Dinsmore,
Said the Monster Trust:   "I am born of Lust,
And a lustful horde I lead.
My dam was Desire, and my lawless sire
Is known in the world as Greed.
At the hour of my birth there was sorrow on earth;
Toil covered her face and wept;
And Progress stood back as I rushed down the track,
And blindfolded Justice slept.
Like a mountain of snow, I grow and grow,
As the millionaires push me along���
They sing at their labor and crush their neighbor
Down under my weight with a song.
For the little men must make way for the Trust;
They must give us the right of way.
It is folly to fight with such a thing of might,
And a thing which has come to stay.
As I roll on my path I leave sorrow and wrath,
And poverty, hunger and cold.
But the millionaires laugh and a bumper they quaff
To the Trust, the monster of gold.
But they push me too fast, and the Many, at last,
The Many who curse and rave,
Shall seize me and bind me, and lo, they shall find me
A willing and competent slave.
Though I fatten the purses and win the curses
Of thousands as I roll by,
Yet time draweth near, when in love, not in fear,
Shall the laborer look in my eye;
For the people shall claim me, and men shall re-name me.
Though horn and begotten of Greed,
I yet shall befriend them, I yet shall defend them
Since only God's purpose can speed.

A BltK-Uw Policy Is Orand Porks.
The sending to jail, for debt, of
two well-known business men the
first of this week is one of the worst
traversitie* upon justice tbat has
ever occurred in this city. It is a
relic of the days of three hundred
years ago, and brings bac.k memories of the whipping post and ducking stool. If the laws of this
country allow a business man to be
thrown into jail for debt, just because he cannot pay the amount at
the exact moment designated by
the Justice before whom the case is
brought up, there is none of us safe,
except the magistrate, who would
hardly care to commit himself to
jail.���Grand Forks Gazette.
Collection day in Grand Forks
has become a day of very serious
import to many citizens of that
burg. The scarcity of money and
collaterals has made it neceessary
for the community to resurrect the
ancient blue-law policy which empowers the creditor to take the body
of the debtor and put it in jail as
security, at the tax-payers'expense.
If this be so, and the Gazette says
it is, it becomes a matter demanding investigation. It is openly and
repeatedly stated in Grand Forks,
that some of the officials there construe law in enmformity to their
desires to punish their enemies and
dispose of oponentB.
L. A. Thurston, a well-known
mining man of Nelson, has just
taken an option on the Iron Horse
group, situated in the city limits of
Rossland, which he will turn over
to an English company at an early

the deal said that he had secured
the option on the property far $150, ���
000 from the Iron Horse Gold-Copper mining company. This amount j
is to be paid in two instalments of I
$75,000 each, within a year.

just isBued by the Ontario government, there were 4,498 insane and
���654 idiots in various public institutions, an increase of 68 over 1899.
This is a bad showing. Is the
cause to be found in the politics of
that province, or in its whisky, or

We hope that at the meeting of
the Associated Boards of Trade to
convene in Greenwood on the 28th
im tant the Boundary members will
stand firmly together in their demand for a county judicial district
separate and apart from Rossland.
The Record heartily endorses the
���expressions of the Greenwood Times
on this question.   After calling attention to the manner in which the
Boundary country had been used to
poke the chestnuts out of the  fire
for   Rossland,  the   Times  says:
"Rossland  should  fight   its   own
battles without sacrificing the Boundary.   The Boundary district, or
rather Southern Yale from Cascade
to   Keremeos should   be   made a
-county with a resident county judge.
This district is of sufficient importance   and  has  sufficient  business
within its boundaries to justify such
a course.   Because Rossland is not
strong enough to travel alone is no
reason why the  Boundary should
be continually sacrificed."   While
the association can only resolve, its
action in this respect will have great
weight in determining the action in
this matter of the legislative assembly at.its nearby session.
Captain J. J. Healy, formerly
general manager of the North
American Trading and Transportation company, and an Alaskan pioneer, in an interview at Seattle,
said: "I'm no longer a young man,
but I believe I shall live to see a
continuous line of railway from
New York to St. Petersburg and
other European capitals. Such a
railroad, in the nature of things,
is only possible by way of Behriug
strait, and work on one of the principal connecting links will be commenced within a year. I refer to
the proposed railroad from Port
Valdes, at the mouth of Copper
river, to the American Yukon. The
great enterprise will undoubtedly
be inaugurated before January,
"This Copper river road is sure
to be built. Nothing is more certain. Work on its construction will
be commenced, I am certain, within twelve months. After crossing
the mountain range the railroad
will follow the Tanana to the Yukon. From this point nothing
seems more certain than that it
will be built across Behring strait
into Siberia. Such a project would
of course have to be carried out by
an international company, and
with the co-operation of the two
nations, the United States and
Russia. It requires nn great stretch
of imagination to picture a railroad
across Behring strait. It is but
twenty miles from the American
shore to Diomede island, and less
than that distance to the Siberian
shore from that island.
"The construction of the road and
its connection with the trans-Siberian railway would give complete
rail connection, assuming an extension of the Canadian Pacific or
some other trans-continental railroad to connect with the Copper
river road, between New York and
St. Petersburg.
"Time will bring about the completion of this gigantic enterprise.
There is money in this country to
do it. Money is now commanding
less than 3 per cent. It wants more
profitable investment. Millions have
been spent in erecting sky scraping
buildings, until these investments
no longer pay. Hundreds of blocks
in Chicago are tenantless, or renting at such low rates that the investment does not pay.
"Think what the construction of
this road would mean! Tea from
China could he shipped by land to
this country. A sea voyage injures
tea���robs it of its flavor. Russia
carries her tea on camels rather
than subject it to a sea voyage. We
could nnd would use much better
grade tea here, but it is not worth
while now, for the reason that it
had to be shipped hy water. Consider, too, what the United States
could ship to Russia, China and
other Oriental countries if this road
were completed."
Captain Healy contemplates the
organization of a large company to
operate in Alaska. Speaking of the
riches of the North, he said:
"I do not hesitate to go on record
as saying tbat the British Yukon
or Northwest Territory, and Alaska, will within the next twenty-five
years, produce more actual mineral
wealth than tbe entire world has
contributed during the past quarter of a century. Formerly we had
only the gold producing gravel
bars of the Yukon, Circle City and
Klondike districts.   Now there are
dozens of camps. Look at that vast
unexplored section of country lying
between the Copper river and
Nome; the great unexplored region
of the Tanana and the Koyukuk.
Consider, too, the Mackenzie river,
where there is now scarcely a white
man, There is gold there unquestionably. It is but a distance of
150 to 200 miles from Dawson to
tbe head waters ot the Mackenzie,
which will in time be prospected
from its source to its mouth.

To   The  Bit; Railway Bridie at
Te Be Made Fire-proof.
Just how it will be done in detail
we are not sufficiently posted to explain, but we understand that work
will be commenced shortly on the
big C. P. R. bridge at Cascade to
make it as near as possible fireproof, and to protect it from the
corroding effects of the natural ele
inenls. The structure is a costly
one, and therefore it is only the
part of wisdom that every possible
and feasible means should be adopted for its preservation. Six carloads of material, consisting of
dressed and|matched lumber, scantlings and larger timbers, rough
boards, etc., have arrived in the
yards here, which has lead to the
belief that the roadway across tlie
bridge is to be roofed in. The whole
structure, it is said, is to receive a
heavy coat of fireproof paint.
Estimates lor Public Expenditure.
The estimates for the Dominion
for the year ending June 30, 1902,
have been brought down. Total
wanted on consolidated fund is
$44,102,322, or 12,278,720 less than
for the previous year..
On capital account there is $6,-
296,500, or $3,983,541 of a decrease
over 1901. However, there will be
impplemeiitaries which will increase
this amount. In estimates there is
$98,000 for public buildings in
British Columbia. Of this amount
there iB $19,000 for Vancouver drill
hall, $20,000 for Rossland public
building, $17,000 for New Westminster public building, $15,000 for
Nelson and $11,000 for Kamloops.

������Jim Recruit. Needed.
According to the present plans of
the United States War Department
the army is to be at once recrited
to its full authorized strength of
100,000 men. The regular army
consists of about ,67,000 men, including the troops in the Philippines, so that the new enlistments
are limited to about 83,000 men.
It is realized by the officials that
it will take a long time to secure so
many men, but the full machinery
of the army is being exerted in
that direction with satisfactory results. Over 400 recruits were obtained last week and it is expected
that much better progress will be
made when the recruiting agencies
are in full operation.

I am sitting alone in the sunhine,
Away up these mountains so high,
The scenes of my youth fleeting by me,
Without a regret or a sigh.
Surrounded by wonderful Nature,
I gaze on the valley below
Then turn my view to the hilltops
All covered with glistening snow.
A beautiful lake in this wildwood,
With margin of forest so high
Spreads away out of Bight up the valley,
To a miner's log cabin close by.
Once this was the old miner's kingdom���
None entered its wonders to see,
Till now, like1 a flash of the lightning
Its beauties have opened to me.
But the scene now changes forever;
The throb of the engine is heard,
The mines are becoming developed;
Of the cabin we hear not a word.
The pace ie becoming so lively
The old miner is lost in the throng;
And these hills that seemed silence forever,
Now echo to bustle and song.'
Farewell, pretty Lake Christina;   -
In spring I'll return to thee,
When my thoughts with thy beauties may mingle,
And heaven seems nearer to me.

An Important Factor in Transcontinental Travel.
No one crossing the continent
oan afford to cut Salt Lake City
from his route. The attractions of
the place, including the Mormon
Temple, Tabernacle and Church institutions, the Great Salt Lake-
deader and denser than the Dead
Sea in the Holy Land���the picturesque environment and the
Warm Sulphur and Hot Springs,
are greater to the square yard than
any locality on the American continent.
The Rio Grande Western Railway, connecting on tbe East with
the Denver & Rio Grande and Colorado Midland Railways and on
the West with the Southern Pacific
(Central Route) and Oregon Short
Line, is the only transcontinental
line passing directly through Salt
Lake City. Tbe route through Salt
Lake City via the Rio Grand Western Railway is famous all the year
round. On account of the equable
climate of Utah and Colorado it is
just sb popular in winter as in summer. Send 2c to J. D. Mansfield,

Another attempt to shorten the

been introduced in the state legislature making eight hours a day's
work in mines. There can be little
doubt as to the necessity for such
