church to the point opposite the Her.
aid office has brought property on
this street into notice and any of lhe
buyers could sell out at a good advance. The great thing in buying
property iu any town is buying it in
the right place and at the light lime.
These gentlemen have displayed good
speculative judgment.
Brother Lowry, the lighting editor
of the Fernie Ledge, has this to say
of lhe Herald editor ami the Herald:
"The Cranbiook Herald has entered
on its eighth year and has a typesetting machine. Us cdlloi is not an
iconoclast and has few real bitter
enemies. He believes in soft-sonp locals aud sugar-coaled editorial, and
never dips his pen in green paint or
vitriol unless he attacks those wllh
tew friends and no commercial standing, Simpson is alive to lhe hanking
end of a newspaper and does not
rouct fame at the expense of losing
his bank roll. Hence lie is fair, fat,
forty, and will probably die wiih his
hoots under the bed.

It u great prlre. It is highly valued
liy the Indians an nn article of food.
its habits are such thai it Ih easy
(ur thu trapper woU-nlgh to exterminate a whole colony in a single
The Canadian law for the protection of tho beaver does not scera
able to remh the Indians. The lnt-
t«r remain for so long a time in the
woods and nre then no far from civilisation thut no ollhliil enn U*ep
watch over their movements. Ho the
pllU'iuts watch tlio dealers and attempt to prosecute them for buying
(lie skins.
Heavers are good to out, and If a
Vuii;t y    man KMIb one hu gpOS    ft or.
I'he Indians of tlio far north go to
tho woods every winter with small
rations, nnd if they out the heaver
they kill it would he hard to net
any man Who had ever fared starvation in the north to stand for their
Vrllea i.r th* D«al«r*.
The dealers who buy heaver skins
employ various schemes for getting
them to market. One fur buyer, for
instance, has a store where he keops
his furs. When uu Indian comes in
wllh a bunch of beaver the dealer
has these taken to another house
whose owner is supposod to be In uo
way Interested in furs.
When there is a fairly large supply
the dealer   takes a   run to   Quebec
or Montreal and arranges for a sale.
The persons who take the furs bn\f*
a third person  In  their conudence.
The third person is not a fur buyer. Consequently when a barrel ol
beaver skins labelled "Glassware"
arrives, sent by n man who does not
deal in furs, no one suspects the deception. The skirs are sent to
American markets, are seen only by
American customs inspectors, who
have no great concern with the enJ
forcemont of Canadian laws, ami the
danger to the dealer Is past.
The great hope of the lawmakers'
wns that the vast region to the
north of the sett leiutnts, where the
Hudson Bay Company has control,
would become a great reservoir froui
which the animals would scatter
southward, tor the company Ih sul.l
to be strictly conscientious In its
obedience to the law.
Hi* DellouL-y »f Delicacies.
The Indian considers the heaver the
delicacy of delicacies, und has a
specful fondness for the flesh of the
animal when it is Cooked uftt'p the
ancient method of singeing oil tho
fur und rousting it whole In tlm
skin. Even after the pelts becumo
valuable he would resort to this
method on special occasions.
When the company would no longer
buy the skins the Indian, too fur
from civilization to deul with any
other fur huer, resorted to old-time
customs, and there was feasting in
tlie land, feasting ou beaver roasted
in the skin.
•This sort of thing could nOt last
long, however, without attracting
(ur buyers from tbe outside world
The outside den let's began sending
their men into the woods. These
found what was undoubtedly a snap,
a chance to buy beaver with no competition. There were fortunes tn the
business and little risk, for the buyers were practically safe from any
possible detection.
This sort of thing was bad for the
Hudson Buy Company, for when men
penetrated its region for the purpose of buying beaver they bought
other furs as well, lots of them, and
the company found itself often unable to get furs enough from successful trappers to pay for the supplies which It always advances on
credit before the winter hunt.
A Bcntlemnn Him Wanted anil Got a
r-cull mul Posit Inn ut Ottawa.
When Mr. C. R. tt. Cockburn, was
member for Centre Toronto, he wns
a regular Old Man of the Hea In the
shape of ono of the gentlemen, Who
annually seeks for a sessional position at the Ottawa House, says The
News. For two years this man pursued the representative from Toronto, but Mr. (Jockburu's list was full,
and tho Insistent gentleman wus sent
empty away. Finally, in the session
of 'Pfl or thereabout, the candidate
scored. On the lirst day of tho session, nfier the letcmonios attending
the opening of Parliament, Air.
Cockburn met Speaker White in tlie
corridor of  the  House  of  Commons.
"By lho wny, Cockburn," reuuirk-
ed the Speaker, "I have given that
chap of yours a (ob ns messenger,"
■•Why!" suld Mr. Cockburn in nur-
pti e, "I didn't nominate anybody
for n mossengorshlp, 1 hud a couple
of nhiips who wanted clerkships, but
I had no messenger."
"Well," returned Mr, While, "he
came down to 800 mo yesterday; told
me that you had endorsed his application, und as you are a friend of
mine, I put blm on. He's on the
1/st now."
Mr. Cockburn did some swift
thinking.   "Oh, yes,"   he said. "Of
course; of course.    He's a good mun,
Tlie fact was that the Torontonlan
had worked a cold-blooded blulT oil
both Mr. Speaker and Mr. Cockburn. But the latter is a good
sportsman. As ho said afterwards
to o friend; '"Confound tho chap. Ho
never spoke to me. about it at nil.
But I admired his nerve, nnd didn't
s.iy a word to Mr. White about the
way he had hoodwinked ns." And
the rest of the story is that nt the
beginning of the next session Mr
Cockburn used his influence to gol
the man a better post.

Victoria Colonist: By repealing see-
lion 42 of the Land Act, the provincial government has just) increased
by $1,500,000 the value of the timber
leaseholds on this coast, says the
Vancouver Province. The added
of the leaseholds is brought about by
the facl that since section -ia of the
act has been repealed there is no prohibition of export applying to leaseholds. There arc probably 000,000
acres of leaseholds ou this coast fr
which it is now possible to export
An examination of the state in which
tho Land Act. now is has also levelled lhe fact that since Hefember 12,
11103, it has been possible for (lie
owrtors of timlier held under pulp
leases lo have exported their logs
The pulpineli have nol been aware if
the fact.
"The legislature Is much to he ion
giaiulnted on what- it has done,1
said a prominent tim her mun in ic
ferriiig lo the repeal of section -12 cl
the act. "it lias added more to the
saleable value of the timber leaseholds than perhaps it could have done
In any other way.
"We timbermen are well .satisfied,
I can lell you. Do 1 think the gov
ernment did not know what It was
doing when it repealed the section'
Well, that is a hard question to answer. It is baldly to be supposed that
an august, deliberative body such as
the British Columbia legislalui
would do anything without knowing
what the result would be. In any
event, the section cannot be replaced
now for another year,"
The amendment which released Umber on pulp lands from the prohibition of export repealed sub-section fi
of section 45 of the Land Act Clause
'l)M ol sub-section 5 prohibited export of timber from pulp leaseholds.
Perhaps now the pulpmen may sell
some of their Umber,
The only prohibition lo export now
applicable in British Columbia is lhat
which deals by order iu council with
timlier cut under special licciise-j.

would catch one. But those days
have passed and now he rides iu a
varnished car, goes ou an annual pilgrimage to the Palousc country and
gets two suits ol clothes a year. It

With a great massive mountain
frowning above the town, making
sunrise many minutes later in consequence, with nnc of the prettiest
lakes in British Columbia bounding
the village on the west, with the
lead mine of the American continent
at its back door, and all the hills
around the place proven to be rich in
ore, Moyie is today one of the prettiest spots in the west, and is backed
up by as much in the way of natural
resources   as any lown iu all of lho
Dominion "f Canada. A prospector's
legend tells us ibat James Crnnln,
then a prospector, slopped at 'be
St. Eugene mission tu secure a eayuse
while tramping through Easl Koote-

James Crouiu is looked upon as one
ol the shrewdest aud most able mine
mine managers on the American continent. Eight years ago, when a
party oi adventurers Irotn the States
slowly moved up the Kootenay elver
against fierce rapids, mud bats and
many other obstacles, among the passengers were three brothers known a.s
the McMahon boys, and a venerable
gentleman, pleasing and courteous in
manner, who was introduced as Col.
Head, of California. He was coining
to lhe dislriel to see the country.
The McMahon boys were looking fur
a location. The St. Eugene was in
the early stages of development, and
Col. I lead examined the proper ly
When he got through he said to the
McMahon boys: "Locate here. This
property will be a great mine." The
boys followed their aged friend's advice and today Pat and Frank McMahon arc proprietors of Ihe big hotel known as the Kootenay. Across
Lhe street from lheir present hoti.i*
stands an old log building and thai
was their first "Palace holel" in
Moyie. This incident is referred to
simply lo illustrate what made .Moylo. Today, with the St. Eugene in
opciatiuu, with great improvements
in store that will greatly increase
the pay roll, now over $25,000 per
month, with other valuable
properties that will be developed to
the shipping point, with vast areas
of mill timber tributary to the town,
with a large sawmill near the place,
Movie is bound to become one of the
most prosperous places in all ot this
vast province. Tbe town has bad its
hard limes. When lhc mine closed
down the days were dark and gloomy
n that beautiful town. Bui the heavy
clouds passed by ami the sunshine of
prosperity brought to each heart a
warm glow of hope and a feeling of
urance that the future was lu be
brighter than (be best days of tho
past had been. Moyie today is a
good town and those who have staid
with the lown under the most adverse
ircumslanccs will see the day that
they will be thankful for the courage
tbey displayed. There is not a nrct-
tier place to spend a day or week iu
till the Kootenays than at .Moyie.
Tho town is Wi'll equipped with up to
late .suites, it has any number oi
flrstclass hotels where man can Pnd
every comfort, it lias the best tishing
in the west, it has a greal mine live
minutes walk from the center of the
town, it has, in fact, everything that
a tnuris't wuuld wish for to make
him happy while searching for a
pleasant outing. Moyie needs just
one thing mole to make the town an
ideal place, nntl that is harmonious
action in the way of improvements.
A lew dollars in boards and nails, a
few enthusiastic words of unity, &
few hours of united action, and the
streets of Moyie would be transformed and strangers visiting the lown
would be must favorably Impressed.
No tourist visiting East Koolenay
should pass up Movie, it is a tourist's paradise, and the people should
ihould unite in making that impression stronger upon the traveling
public. Moyie is bound to become famous for business and for pleasure
and each move that will enhance its
reputation in that direction will be
balled with delight by lhc Herald.

Dell McFaddcn had a ride on Tuesday morning which he ought not soon
to forget. He was loading some
scantling onto a dray wagon belonging to the Fcrnie Cartage company.
Having occasion to move the wagon
a few feet forward he spoke to the
horses and as they moved forward a
piece ol timber tipped up and scared
the horses, one of which was a colt.
They started forward ami Dell sprang
to their heads and grabbed qoth bridles on the inside. He was unable to
cheek them and Dell found his only
safety was in clinging to the neck-
yoke aud tongue.. The horses rushed
at a mad pace down the main street
with the lad hanging body downward
to the wagon tongue with his hands
and feet. So long as they kept the
road everything was lovely and the
lad enjoyed Ute ride but near the hospital they got among the stumps.
The horses straddled one large stump
which caught the axle and stopped
tho runaway. The daring rider came
out of the scrape without a scratch,
but none ot the eyewitnesses cau explain bow he escaped instant death
in going over that stump.

Kelson Tribune: The old proverb
that one side is good until the othei
is heard is well illustrated by the reply made on behalf of the smelters
to the charges published in our last
issue. Now that the statement and
answer are placed side by side, it is
easy to see that the former ignore,!
conditions that explain the apparent
discrepancy. Wc gave the interview
with exactness and detail because it
was obvious that it did not attempt
to deal with the Items of cost cover-
cred by the $25.20 alleged to be
charged by local smelter for treatment. As the following figures show
the actual amount netted by them,
after deducting the various sums
which they have to pay oul, is only
$3.75, a figure which it is impossible
for a moment to contend is excessive. If the Slocan mine owners have
anything to say to this we shall be
pleased to hear from them. It 'ooks
to us that their charge is fully ans
On n OS per cent lead ore the list
charge is 51.50 for freight from mini
to smelter; next freight ou bullion t.
San Francisco at $1) a ton is $5.85
The charge there for refining at, $10
a tun is $0.50. Freight on refined
produce lo Montreal, New York 01
London, it is marketed, is an average
of $11 a Ion, or $0,10, making :t lo
lal charge for freight after the ore ih
delivered to the smelter of $21/15,
Deducting Ibis from lhe $25.20 which
the mine owners say lhe smelters
charge them wc get a net balance of
$3,75 for actual smelting.
