Bring Prosperity to Kim-

Consolidated M. & S. Co.,
Take Over Kimberley
Siler-Lead Mine.
Tho Port Steele Mining St Smelting
Company, who recently secured the
property of the Sullivan Group Mining Company, which Is located at
Kimberley aud Marysville, have leased the property to the Consolated
Mining and Smelting Campany.
Tho property is leased to the Consolidated Company (or a period of

I and there is no limit to their malar
ity. When  Bob Fltzaimmons  whipped

i ed down an offer of IliHl.uuo to lose.
1 The   gamblers   who offered lum that
amount     would     have   made   many
times   that   sum   had   FlUslmmouH
fallen   for   their   game,but that was
1 ono time when Bob was on tho level-
It was a grudge light with him that
day, for he had an old score to wipe
oat.   It is    generally     thought that
Jeffries   will   have   something of the
same   feeling   toward   Johnson when
! he   faces   him   next   July that Fitz-
| slmmons   had   for Corbett, but some
.doubt   is   expressed   when  Johnson's
'name   is   mentioned.   Will tho negro
! who   loves   money   ho much, be able
to    withstand     the     temptation    of
doing   business    with   the   gamblers?
Would Johnson refuse to take a licking   for    $100,000,   or   perhaps twice
that sum?   Add that amount to his
, legitimate   winnings   and his   end of
the   moving   picture   money   and  it
j would   pay   him   better to lose than
to win.   Could he withstand such an
offer?   Contests between two men  in
which   so   much   money   is   involved
lire v ory   dangerous   to   bet on.   In
fact an axiom of wise betting men is
"never   to   risk   much  on   anything
that   can   talk."   Hut   there   will be
plenty    of   "sucker"   money   at. the
ringside   when    Jeffries and Johnson
clamber   through   the   ropes to tight
for the heavyweight championship of
the   world and the  sure-thing gamblers will have their eyes on it.

Ihe Uritlsh Umpire
If this English drama moves the
historian so powerlnlly it is hecntiBO
tho future late of the entire world
hinges upon Ihe victory or Ilie dofcal
of tho British nobility. Is there need
to recall the prodigious work of th:
nobility, mustering all the nntlonnl
forces to direct them towards a sin
glc, constant end—the domination <
the most distant seas and lands'' Th
French Revolution submerges all hit,
ropean nations; foreign people with
a united effort hurl hack the destroy.
Ing wave, but everywhere, In InWB,
In manners, under the wreck of
thrones, It leaves living Reims which
soon bring these people closer (o the
new French Ideal. Alone the Intangible Island escapes the contagion.
Into this England, the model which
our visionaries of tlie eighteenth century wished to fashion us, nothing
of tholr doctrines, nothing of tholr
polltlclal and social renovations tins
penetrated, liar goddess Liberty has
not a trait in common with tlio mosaic of Individual privileges und accepted discipline which continues to
he the foundation oi the English
state. When the great soldier of the
revolution enslaves Em-ope, alone
tho unconquerable island braves him
and breaks him. After twenty-live
years of u gigantic duel the
patience of thc Eng.ish nobility wore
out the gonitis of Napoleon, threw
down the colossus, destroyed the new
Empire of Charlemagne.,
In the course of the century this
tenacity persists and tinds its reward
in remaking to its own prolit aa em
plre even vaster than that of Napo
loon. Thc long reign ol Victoria is
comparable to the reign of our Louis
XIV. It lacked the Intellectual brilliance which the magnificence of the
French hegemony achieved, I,at its
greatness was established with the
means required hy the exigencies of
another time—wealth, Industrial nml
commercial supremacy, colonial ex-
paasloa, universal diffusion of a spir
it of practical command nnd ol a
language appropriate to the needs of
■ If we consider merely little Europe,
we may hold that Oerman prepon
derancc, the fruit of victory, has
been the characteristic feature of the
nineteenth century; hut if wc consider
tho whole world and it is thus that
we must look, in tlie scheme of con
temporary history which ims gath
ered the globe in our grasp the nine
teentb remains incontestahly thc English century. Nothing like the
British Empire has ever existed in
the world since Home and the Roman
senate. A second time the divine de
creo has intrusted to n race a mis
sion dellncd by the poet, "To rule
the peop.es with empire." It has
fulfilled it with the actions, tho
spirit ami the hard virtues of the
soverign people.
The English senate is the peerage,
indefatigable performers at this great
taBk. Supple oligarchy, traditional
and more and more accessible! All
the men of worth in the nation become naturally gathered Into it to
fortify It. The man who thirty years
ago gave its definitive form to tho
British Empire, the Earl of Beacons
Hold, had been the little Jew Disraeli, bookseller's clerk. Today, side
by side with peers whose ancestors
conquered the island with William,
pillars of this empire, are lords ol
recent creation, proconsuls and generals, such us Cromer. Mllncr, Hob
erts, Kitchner.
This ls the Incomparable ruling Instrument which is perhaps nbotit to
founder in the tempest.
And after Its disappearance what
will become of thut other marvel.
English royalty, so exalted and so
simple, powerful for national greatness, Impotent for tyranny, a divinity consccrntod by the veneration of
a people that It protects without
ever menacing Its liberties? Royalty
is thc keystone of this feudal edifice.
How shall we believe that the key
stone will support itself long upon
tho void whence the arch will havo
Domocraey may bo able to bring
other henellts, but the experience of
time tenches uh that from it cannot
be expected the continuity of opinions and efforts, the constant sacrifice of secondary interests to nation
al interests, thc superb pride which
stiffens Itself against adverse fortune
long enough to make this bond before
It. Let another Napolenu come, a
revolt In India, a now explosion in
South Atrlca or In some other part
of the subject continents, the English democracy would regret having
smashed its magic buckler; it would j
know itsell disarmed, an vulnerable
as other nations; if not in its own
Island, at least in the vast world
subjected to this Island hy tho implacable wlll of its conscript
fathers.  *  '  *
Let the English look at the branch
of their race which has detached itself, implanted upon the virgin soil
of America; there, no more hereditary aristocracy, no peerage, no more
feudal survivals weighing upon tho
free earth, but a colony of equals.
There, in less than a century, social
inequalities have developed more vigorously than in old England; thc defiance hurled by oxcosslvo fortunes to
the envy of tbe poor has been more
audacious than any where else. It Is
too probable that after the extinction of tho landlords a new plutocracy would rlso quickly upon the
ruins ol the ancient urlstorracy,
would rovlvo the worst abuses with I
which their lordships uro reproached
and would not replace them In their
tutelary functions, iu great statesmanship and In J calnus watch over
