I OBSERVATIONS 1
\        HY THK OLD MAN. g
It may not he generally known,
but ii is a faet novel thelws, that in
proportion to ibe population Canada
produces moro newspapers iban any
country in the world, This speaks
Volumes lor the intelligence of Canadians because it shows thut they nre
bound to keep iu touch with the
news of   the world.
The United States Congress passed
n law recently which makes it u misdemeanor tor tho publisher ol a
newspaper lo send bis publication to
anyone who is in arrears witb their
subscript ton, The result is tbat
publishers all over the States are
sending notices tu the above effect to
their delinquent subscribers. A law
oi this kind placed upon the statute
hooks of tbe Dominion would be hailed with delight bv Canadian news-
papeitneu.

Tbe City Council at its meeting
last eveniim; expressed a unanimous
desire to go ahead with their part ot
the work iu seeuriua u new school
building as rapidly as possible. They
placed themselves uu record as being
anxious to co-operate with the school
trustees in every way possible, so
long as their actions conformed with
the laws of the province. They were
vej-v emphatic in their expression oi
opinion, that since tbe government
hud signified its willingness to assist
in tbeir work to the extent of
512,500, that it would not he
fair or just to the ratepayers to
present a J'50,000 byjuw, when J-"t"(-
500 was all that it required to make
up to the full amount ot $50,000,
us asked by the trustees. It. is to
be regretted that tbe trustees aud the
council cannot get together on this
question so that arrangements mnv
in- perfected without further delay,
for the preliminary work necessary
to secure the money to proceed with
construction. Cranbrook needs . a
first-class school house, and no unnecessary time should be lost in providing lor the same. There seems
to be no legitimate reason whv the
work should not go on and the
ratepayers who have to furnish the
inonee am anxious to see this done.
Dr. Kinif, the member from the
Cranbrook district, made such
strong speech ia the house the other
t\nv in reply to the speech from the
throne that at the close Premier McHride uaid bim the unusual compti
ment ol walk inr aeross the floor of
tin- house to the doctor'*-- desk and
publicly congratulating him on his
effort. This from the leader ol the
government to one of the leading
members of the opposition reflects
great credit both upon Dr. Kim
and the district which he so util- re
resents.

Belgian hares have been seam lately

Feiiner's Clutch. It Is essential that
these animals should lie exterminate

a public service by ottering a substantial bounty for the destruction ol

ol lapping lhe coal and lumber districts of the Flathead river valley, in
South Easl Kootenai, will be waged
hy American railway Interests during
and lollowing tills session nl the
provincial legislature, says the Vancouver 1'rovince.
The Great Northern, which already
laps tin- Crows Nest district bv a
branch line [nun the main line north
via the Ell. river to Michel and Fernie, seeks lo build into a region at
present without transportation facili
I les.
Tin- other prospective invaders ol
Canadian territory are Hill's '-rent
rival. E. II. Marriman. as well as
ilu- Milwaukee & I'ugot Sound, u new
transcontinental line Willi Seattle as
ii-. Pacific roast terminal, and .Mr- IV
c. Corbln, ■ a Spokane millionaire,
ivlio co-operated with thc Canadian
i'acillc railway in building tlie Spokane International, thc new link connecting Spokane with the Crows Nesi
I'n.v, railway, nnd forming witli the
ii It, .v N. railway n through route
hetw'a'cn Portland nnd Minneapolis
.mil Chicago.
Thc lorccs ol these rival Interests
Iinva- already begun to assemble In
\ nitcotivcr and Victoria in order tn
oiguni.e for the legislative campaign
which will soon begin in earnest.
Lobbies representing the Milwaukee
ntul lluri'iman interests have been
stopping at the Hotel Vancouver Ioi
several days. The nominal appll
emits for lho privilege of building
lines through the Flathead river val
lea, are llritish subjects, but in rcal-
il'v tbey are merely acting as agenl
for lhe American transcontinental
roads.
A charter covering the route trom
the international bouudarv line north
through the Flathead river valley
aad on lo a point on the Crows
Nest branch of the Canadian I'acillc
railwav is now in existence. 11 is
owned bv thc South East Kootenay
Hallway company, which is preparing
to oiler strong opposition to tbe advent of rival companies, provided its
interests are not tully protected. Thc
owners ol this franchise are nearly all
Canadians, anal recently they completed linancial urrungements to undertake the eonstructiou of thc road
during the coming summer. Offers
from at least one of lhe transcontinental mails seeking to Invade thc
coal districl were turned down. The
location surveys have been complet-
i'd.
.Mr. J. .1. Hill plans to build a
branch line north (rom Belton, a station on tbe main Hue in Belton,
.Mont. He will enter British Columbia via thr. Flathead valley, crossing
ihe frontier at a point nearly 100
miles cast ol Gateway, the point
where bis existing line into the
Crows Nest district crosses the
boundary line. Besides tapping tho
loal ami lumber regions throughout
lliis district he will make connections with liis northern terminals at
Fernie aud   Michel.       i, ..posed
line will client a saving of 100 miles
in the haul ot eoal and coke to
Butte, the mining und smelting centre, as computed with thc other Hill
branch via Gateway.
Mi. I). C. Corbin has already huill
a railway from McGillivray on thc
line of thc C.P.H. to Corbin, a distance of 11 miles. At Corbin lie is
now developing a coal mine. His
holdings nf eoal lands iu tbat lo-
lulilv arc large, embracing li
claims, lie plans an expenditure ol
one million dollars in placing the
nunc ou a shipping basis. Several
hundred men ure now engaged in development work. Corbin now seeks
permission to extend bis line down
ibe valley ol the Flathead fiver to
ih.' International boundary". He
plans extending this line southeast
lo llnlle iu order to lind a market
lor his conl and coke. Hot this
phase i'i tin- proposition is only in-
cidciilal, as other trailic would be
secured. The conl deposits in the
Flathcud country are said lo surpass
those oi Uu- lamed Crows Nest Pass
dialrlcl iii thickness as well as iu
quality, constituting one ol the
largest conl nteiis iu the world. Being on iiiiiiiiiy terms wiib the c.p.lt.

the International boundary it will
traverse » rich and undeveloped portion of territory, including luo well
known Flathead Indian reserve. The
link from the main line fo lhe British Columliia holder will    he     iihniit
inn miles long. This route will also
afford a shorter haul to the Montana smelters than that now enjoyed
hv the Hill branch line to Fernie and
Michel. (Mlicials of tbe Milwaukee
have lately heen investigating a number td important eoal propositions
in the Canadian Flathead country at
prices varying from $r»ti(i,00h to
51,500,000, The matingenierit is
credited with the intention of securing a supply of eoal (or its new
transcontinental system, efforts to
nurclinsc satisfactory eoal lands in
Wyoming and other adjacent states
having proved unsuccessful; indeed, a
liiuli official of the Milwaukee >***stem
here this week from Seattle stated
thai every American transcontinental

Vmerlenn coal produced in Hie west,
he sullied, was fnI inferior in steaming qualities, while Mill ish Columbia i
coke was iudispeiisiblc to tlie American smelters west of tlie Missouri
river. Interests close to thc
management of lhu Milwaukee have
also sent trusted agents to tbe Flat-
bead river valley to report on the
area of coal lauds with a view to
engaging in coal mining us a private
enterprise.

nnd Lord Melville c0mes from the
same stock. The Arniston branch
possesses a curious Venetian u-obl-M,
.Hid. like the famous "lurk" ol
I'den Hall, tbey believe that their
prosperity depends upon its preservation. It was Riven by his mother
In Sir Limes Dundas in the rei^n of
Queen Mary, with an injunction to
preserve it carefully ur misfortune
would attend    the family. it once
' ad .-. miraculous escape from destruction, for ,i verv eccentric Peeress,
who for sn:n< unknown reason, owed
the family a irrudge, concealing her
sinister intentions, asked to be al*
lowed to sec it. and when it was
handed to her she deliberately threw
it t.' the ground Everyone present

smashed into fragments, hut, stranm*

i daring outrage took place recent
ti. the premises of a loan com-
tj Ituated in Greenock. On goto dinner, the manasei left hi:
Istant, Mr. Holbourn, in rttirp-f
[nl ttie shop. \ few minutes later
Holbourn heard a knock at the door
ofliee, and when he went to
ii ice it he was set upon by three
men Although taken by surprise,
the ..ssista.nl quickly realised the
fierilous .situation in which he was
nlAml, and with a desperate eflort
be succeeded in breaking through his
assailants, who had endeavored to
close him in. One of the intruders was
armed with a life-preserver, and with
ihis he struck Holbourn a violent
blow, Inflicting o severe wound on
Hie head. Weeding profusely, Hol-
liottFn rushed downstairs and raised
lho alarm, and the men. (lading their
plan* had miscarried, immediately
Made nil, getting clear away. The
"Inn i of the outrage is supposed lo
have been robbery, hut no money ot
valuables are missing.
Wiib Ihe opening ot Ue new vear
Hie people of Haltonside, Fifwbtre,
will miss a figure that has been
closely associated with the dailv
life of the people for more thau a
ireneration. Mrs. Elizabeth Dickson,
the village post-woman, will have
then ret.ltvd after a service of nearly
thirty-one years. In April, 1878,
sbe took up the duties of het late
husband, and the total distance she
has walked on post office duty is
nearly 130,000 miles. During part of
her service, from 1880 to 1889, she
combined the duties of post woman with those of sub-postmistress
fur the village, closing the office
while on her walk. Being an unes-
t.ildished officio), Mrs. Dickson is not
entitled to superannuation, but it is
likelv that she will receive as an
act of grace a compassionate allowance during her retirement. Mrs.
Dickson has had only a fortnight's
absence on sick leave during her
, whole employment.
Tbe funeral of Yuan Yap the victim of a recent shooting affair in
Chinatown, Liverpool, was accompanied bv some grotesque rites.
The coffin was covered with white
(lowers, hound witb red satin ribbons, a Chinese emblem for sympathy with a person who hns not
died u natural death. The ritual
consisted of lirst lighting u Arc  near
the head of the open -rave. Thej
lirht and smoke ol the burning'
material, emblem oi tuturity. soared
upwards while a Chinaman on his
knees fanned the flames, others uttering droning and dolorous sounds.
and now and again there came a
hollow sepulchral laugh. Streamers
of paocr, arranged like the tails of
kite, steeped in scented liquid,
were ignited, the aroma being wafted
all round as the flames increased.
Money was thrown down hv the
mourners on to tbe coffin in silver
and copper. Then the cork of a
whisky bottle was drawn, anil a motion of the contents scattered into
the grave. Howls of rice were
brought up, and their contents em-
plied mto tbe grave. Then more
whiskey was waited from the ni b ol
the bottle, and fruit wus handed
round. A quantity ol biscuits was
also dropped upon the coffin and there
followed a iin.il great pouring out of
whisky. A plump chicken ami a
puce ol meat, weie next handed
round, After all thi; stores had heen
eaten, oj .-ast intu the grave, two
Chinamen came forward and swiftly
threw the   oil into tho - ravi
Tho somewhat extraordinary careei
• -I .in alien wa:. l.mi bale in J.uudun
recentlv. when a Hungarian agent
was charged with stealing Jewellery
and plate value £25, property of Mr.
sulu, broker, oi Piccadilly, Detective-Sergeant Tritton said prisoner
bad had a most romantic career, lie
hud taken out a large number of
patents, had beeu a director of com
panics, and bad earned largo sums of
money in that way. In .luue last
he was almost penniless, and entered
the service of prosecutor as clerk.
After being there a week be was
given 30s. to get some documents
stamped, hut he kept the money,
went to Mr. Suhr's house at Cttckli
wood, got Mrs. Suhr away by a false
message, and then took all tlie plati
and jewellery be could lind. Tbt
same night he left for the Continent,
where he remained until some wcekf
ago. He then saw iu an English
newspaper that an ancestor (he wai
very well connected) had left a large
sum of money two hundred years ago
which had never been claimed. He
came to England with the intention
of claiming it, and was arrested
the night of his arrival. During the
few years he had heen in England In-
had obtained various sums of money
from respectable girls after promising
tbem marriage. One girl burrowed
£80 to give him, and was now working day aud night to pay it back
Ho was sentenced to three months'
hard laboi and recommended for de
portation.
Laden with the largest cargo of oil
and skins she has ever carried, and
little auxiliary steamboat Harmony
recentlv arrived in tbe London docks
after a six months' cruise iu the
h'rozen North. She belongs to the
Moravian Mission, and her dutv is to
make an annual and eagerly looked
Ior visit co their missionaries in
lonely exile amongst the Eskimos.
Leaving the docks, the little craft
made a quick run to Makkovik, on
the coast of South Labrador, loaded
with comforts for thc missionaries.
No ill was encountered except at
Hebron, a 't-ort whose harbor was
fro/en up. The iron-plated bows of
thc Harmony however, with the assistance of' full steam, crashed
through the obstacles with slight
damage to the ship, and thc call
was duly made. At Kamah an exciting incident occurred which almost ended the career of the Harmony. Waiting to embark the
population to transfer it to Naln, a
hurricane arose which almost drove
the vessel ashore. Compelled to cut
adrift from her moorings, the Harmony had t» leave Kamah minus her
passengers, who were forced to tramp
sixty miles over the mountains to
Hebron, where the ship eventually
picked them up.
"Heggar Smith's" bounty to Char
iwood, near Kedhill, of bread and
meat, was distributed a few days he
fore Christmas. Henry Smith was a
wealthy citizen and alderman of London, who died in 1027, and who for
the last three centuries has been
known as "Heggar Smith." Fleforc
making his will, in the guise of
beggar, he visited scores of villages
in East Surrey nnd provided for the
villagers according to the manner in
which thev befriended bim, so tradition runs. His bequests to the poor
are as varied as they are numerous.
To one parish he bequeathed money
tn purchase a whip. <m the occasion
of his visit the squire, mistaking the
city alderman for a beggar, used his
whip mi him unmerciful • and until a
comparatively recent date a whip was
provided annually and presented to
the most deserving carter.
A remarkable incident occurred recently at Carmarthen, Katie Webber,
a child of 11, left her home one evening, and as she did not return her
mother thought she might be witb
her aunt, who resides in the village.
Du the following morning a neighbor
went to the water su*-''i\ a well, 10
feet, deep, hut could not draw awn\
ihe biirket. Reing deaf, he heard no
cry, but made known that there was
something wrong, and the eirl's
eldest brother came, and. hearing bis
ister calling, was lowered down, and
found her at the bottom. The Wfttei
was not depp. lie fastened the tope
around her, and she was drawn up
and taken home.     She is unable to
ve an- account oi ber movements
after she left her home. She was
standing for TS hours in cold water.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith, of Bidetord,
recently experienced a marvellous escape from death. A large chimney
tell through the roof of thc house,
and although a beam felt across their
bed, iu addition to a quantity of
bricks aud masonry. Mr. Smith only
received a severe shock and bruises.
Mrs. Smith's escape was almost more
marvellous, as a heavy piece of masonry fell so close to her head as to
pin her down hy the hair, which had
to be cut away before she could be
extricated. A considerable quantity
of debris also fell upon a child lying
in a cot.
Kobert Wilson, of Liverpool, was
charged at Mansfield with burglary
a short time ago. Wilson entered
the Talbot hotel and limling no
money in tbe till turned his attention
to the liquors in the liar. Whiskey,
sloe gin, champagne, slier rv and nort
wine were sampled, nnd when Wilson
awakened in the morning he lound
himself lying on the settee In the
bar witb the landlord und a constable bending over bim. Ho wns
committed fur trial.

Coroner Wilkes was called to
Baynes Lake Monday in hold au Inquest upon the body of Patrick Steel
a man about 52 vears of age, who
had been working fnr the Adolph
Lumber company of that place. The
man had come to the mill with the
first load of logs about ti o'clock iu
the morning, and was, with Ills "art
ner, preparing to unload tlm Iors
from the sled. The honk of the
boom chain had been loosened aud
.Steel stepping back from the sled
told his partner, wlm was on thc
other side of the load, tn let it go.
It seems that the lnj;s did not start
fo roll at once and the itnfortunat
man stepped back Inwards lbe lond
just as the logs broke aud was

Executive Committee ~- Kastucr,
Armstrong and Scott.
The relict fiiml matter was started
upon a fair way towards a satistno
torv settlement at the mass meeting
held in the Miners' building last Sundae afternoon, mirsuant tn a call uf
the Trades and Labor Council. One
f the largest gatherings Md in the
Hy since tbe (ire assembled to listen
o whatever report tin* executive
committee might hnve tn make. Ail
the members of the committee who
were in lown, turned uut and occupied front scats. John Wild, nf Uu-
Miners' union, presided and demonstrated his ability In cunirol an assemblage which at tim»s showed
signs of uiiruliness. F-x-Mayor
Tuttle, chairman uf Hie committee,
was tlie first speaker called upon In
address the meeting, and aci|iiilled
himself in his usual manner, He
read portions of the minutes nf Hie
" gs uf the committee, ami disclaimed any responsibility fur the
idoption uf ihe lumber loaning
scheme, which seemed lu mi lice-'ing
for some one In acknowledge paternity, though everybody seemed lu
hold the whole committee responsible
for the maternal part nf the parentage, This is a misfortune that all
mothers are compelled tu admit,
while fathers are able, in mam instances, In escape their share uf the
matter. Air. Tuttle did, however,
claim credit fur thc fact thai then'
was a balance on hand fur cold
weather emergencies. After Mr.
Tuttle, came Mayor Herchmer. who
did not throw much liglit imoti the
state uf thini's. Mr. Sherman acxt
took the door and explained his connection with the lumber lonaing
scheme, admitting that he hail introduced the resolution as that was the
only way il seemed possible tu get
any lumber fur the working men. who
would he compelled lo leave lhe
town if lliey could not iret shelter in
ine way before the cold weather.
He, however, denied that he had anything to du with the scheme of conv
lielliii"" the men to asMiiti a portion
of their wnges each month in ,:
meat of the lumber supplied by Hie
commit ice. declaring that such an
angement was lhe product uf the
mind of some lawyer. . L. P. Eckstein ftdlowed Sherman, and Thus.
IJlggs, a member uf the committee,
was the last speaker, closing thi1
rather desultory discussion iu a manlier that will not he forgotten h- ;
few uf his hearers fur some time. After the rethrcshing of oft threshed
straw, lhe meeting passed a resolution requesting the committee to call
a meeting uf the original committee
of Ih, which had created the executive, in order that some method uf
closing out the fund aud nf making
some disposition nf the lumber loan
matter, the whole in he submitted to
the sufferers of the district, was
adopted and the meeting enme to an
cud. If Ihis plan is carried out it

DOMINION MINING REPORT
The Report on the Mining und
Metallurgical Industries of Canada,
issued by the Department of Mines
ot the Dominion Government, is a
publication whieh should not, like the
great majority of valuable reports,
pamphlets and so on of a like nature, he permitted lo drop into the
bands ot those specially interested in
the subject matter without culling
the attrntiou ot lbe puhlie generally
to its existence and its extreme importance to the great mining industry of British Columbia.
Tbe name of the Hon. W. Templeman, late Minister of Mines in the
Dominion Government is very specially identified witb this great publicu-
Caiinilii must have presented a serious
names of A. P. Low, L.L.D., the
Deputy Minister, and Dr. Eugene
llaaiiel, Die eminent director of the
department.
. The mode ot dealing wilh the enormous mass of facts Involved iu anything pretending to be a compendious
report ou the mining industry ot
Canada must have presented a serious
matter of consideratiau at the very-
step-oB of the enterprise, but it was
admirably solved by dividing the
Dominion into provinces and again
sub-dividing the provinces under thc
heads ot the various brauches ot
mining following in the province under discussion. Thus, the review of
tbe Yukon deals first with the historical tacts in connection with the
wonderful gold discoveries of tbat
region, then it goes into the subject
of placer mining, and thirdly lode
mining. Once more the subjects
themselves are divided and sub-divided, until finally we come to a resume
ut the output and principal features
of every gold-producing property in
that famous district.
In like manner is all British Columbia dealt with under heads covering the historical features, placer
mining, tin: genesis of lode mining,
lode mining production, coal coke,
note;-; on recent development and progress, and labor conditions in our
province. As a test of the value
of the index to the volume a reference was sought to the Reco mine,
near Sandon, in the Slocan, owing
to a recollection of a huge mass of
pyrargyrite (ruby silver) taken from
the Goodeiiough vein ot the Reco in
the'spring of 11)02. Not alone is full
information given of the company, its
capitalization, members, development
and progress, hut attached to a first-
class map showing every foot of the
workings, both on thc horizontal audit) the section. In the case ot the
St. Eugene even the flow sheet of
the concentrator is given, and so in
like manner witli many other properties in different mining divisions of
tbe province. The maps and illustrations, the latter being particularly
interesting and instructive, form an
important part af the volume,
where if one wants to find the relative cost of sinking, drittig, shaft-
sinking, or the like, the cost per foot
can be ascertained from the oflicial
figures of the companies. Thus, in
thc Sullivan mine at Kimberley, the
cost of drifting is given at $16 per
foot and of sinking $20. Brielly
stated, it may he said that there is
not an operating mine in British Columbia that is not dealt with as tully as it is possible in thc limits of a
work short of an actual encyclopedia.
The other provinces are treated
quite us exhaustively as is our own,
so that to anyone interested in the
great subject ot our mineral re- J
sources, this is a work of exceeding
interest and of great importance as a <
valuable reference book, '
The compilation and preparation of
the Information appearing in tbe
report as to British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba
was under the verv competent
chgrge of IX, IX. Medley,' late of Nelson, who tor main years had charge
as manager of the Mall's mine smeller nt that eity. It appears ns if
the new electrical zinc smelter at
Nelson had not advanced itself sulli-
ciently to merit an extended description at the time the pages went to
press, Tills is to be regretted, as in
this process lies the future of the
successful and profitable treatment of
Ihe great supply nf gfnclforoua ores of
both West and East   Kootenav.
The Hon. Mi. Templeman is to he
rung]niu!aled on the (treat work
that has been produced under his
supervision as Ministci nf Mines.
PROVINCIAL HOUSE
Victoria, Feb. 4.—Another afternoon was devoted to routine business, several bills being advanced a
stage. Hon. W. J. Bowser, Attorney General, introduced a hill to
amend the Arbitration Act. J. ll.
lluwLhointhwaite, Nanaimo, has given notice ot a motiou to extend tbe
franchise to women iu Provincial elections. John Melnnes, Grand Forks,
moved the second reading ot his bill
to amend the inspection uf Metalliferous Mines Act. Thc premier moved
the adjournment ot the debate. The
hills to amend the * Magistrates Act,
providing for the revision of tbe
statutes and to amend the Horticultural Board Act, were considered in
committee.
lion. Mr. Bowser moved the second
reading of his hill to amend the Provincial Elections Act. The motion
was opposed hy Mr. Hawthornthwaite, Mr. Melnnes and Parker Williams, who designated the hill oue to
disfranchise workmen.
The premier spoke in defence ot thc
bill, while the leader of the Opposition, who expressed approval ot the
principle of the measure, urged that
necessary amendments could be made
in committee.
On a division the second reading
carried on a joint vote ot thc Conservatives and Liberals, only the Socialists voting against.
Bills to amend thc Fire Insurance
Policy Act and thc Supreme Court
Act were read a second time as also
ihe private hills to Incorporate the
Victoria A Barclay Sound Railway
company, whieh is in charge of John
Jnidtne.'  Ksiiuimalt.
WILL ADMIT CHINKS AND JAPS
Lethbridge, Alta., Feb. 5.—The
seventh annual convention of District No. 18 of the United Mine
Workers of America will go on record
as being one of the mosl important
in the history of the district. Some
very important legislation wus put
through. One uf the must important
questions to eomo before the convention wns that of allowing Asiatics
to become members of   the union.
A  CORRECTION,
Whereas, some of our advertising
mutter connected with thc sale for
tlie Cranbrook Co-Operative Stores
stock, would seem to reflect on tbe
insurance companies in the adjustment in the recent loss by fire of the
('ranhrook Co-Operative Store, in
that we state "Having failed to arrive at a satisfactory settlement ot
the insurance loss," we wish to correct any erronotis impression on the
part of the public and desire to say
that thc statement was used in that
broad sense, implying that in consideration of the fact that thc Cranhrook Co-Operative Co. was not only
heavy losers by fire, whieh loss was
satisfactorily adjusted by the different companies involved, but as the
store was closed tor an entire month,
with the consequent loss ot business,
which alone curtails a loss that no
insurance can entirely cover. We
wish it understood that said advertisement was not intended to reflect,
iu anv wav, on the integrity or fairness of any of thc insurance companies, whose business, we understand,
was entirely satisfactory.
Yours respectfully,
Macker -fe Cochran
For the Cranbrook Co-Operative Co.

AN  IMPORTANT FINDING.
A judgment that is of considerable
importance to laboring men in the
province was handed out at thc district court, Edmonton, Alta., this
week by Mis Honor Judge 11. C.
Taylor. This was in the case of
some eighteen employes ot the United
Collieries company against two directors of that company for wages
due them, amounting to some 6700.
Judgment was given tor the miners.
This was a test case and provides
that laborers and wage-earners may
collect the wages due them trom any
or all of the directors ot a joint
stock company iu thc event of that
company failing.

porrc, although the big French vessel

CANADA'S   BIGGEST CREDITOR.
Great Britain is Cauada's big creditor. The Dominion owes $254,000,-
u(ti) to the people of the United Kingdom, and the provinces $50,000,000,
while the intehtedness of railways
and oilier business concerns will
swell the total- to $500,000,000.
Canada's greatest borrowing record
was last year, when $196,000,000
worth of securities of all kinds were
sold abroad, of which the United
Kingdom took $175,000,000. Thc
old tady across the herring pond
seems to have an inexhaustible stocking.

WIRELESS    NOW   COMPULSORY
Washington, Feb. L—Appreciating
the value of the suggestions that
have arisen since tbe introduction ot
his bill to require all ocean passenger vessels to be equipped with wireless telegraphy, Representative Burke
of Pennsylvania, today re-introduced
his bill with several amendments.
This action followed a long conference with Commissioner Chamberlain
of the bureau of navigation, and
General Uhler, supervising inspector
general of the steamboat navigation
service, in thc department of commerce and lahor. Both officials approve of the new hill. Thc conference was held at thc suggestion of
the house committee on merchant
marine and fisheries which has been
considering the subject. This committee will meet tomorrow to take
ni-tion on the new hill. As amended
the hill applies to ocean passenger
steamers certified to carry fifty passengers ot more between ports two
hundred utiles distant, instead of
500 miles as in the first bill. The
new hill thus makes the requirements applicable to coastwise vessels, except on the Great Lakes. The
penalty is changed so as to provide
for a maximum fine of $HUM or one
year's imprisonment.

THE FIRST AMERICAN
I LIKE TO SEE A MAN PROUD
OF THK PLACE IN WHICH ME
LIVES. 1 LIKE TO SEE A MAN
WHO I.IVES IN IT SO THAT HIS
PLACE WILL BE PROUD OF HIM.
BE HONEST, BUT HATE NO
ONE, OVERTl UN A MAN'S
WRONG-DOING, BUT DO NOT
OVERTURN HIM UNLESS IT
MUST HE DONE IN OVERTURNING THE WRONG, STAND WITH
ANYBODY THAT STANDS RIGHT.
STAND WITH HIM WHILE HE IS
RIGHT, AND PART WITH HIM
WHEN HE goes WRONO.—Abraham Lincoln.
Tomorrow the United Stales will
celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of the birthday ol its greatest
citizen. As the years go by
brighter glory gathers around the
life aud services nf Abraham Lincoln. Many times have writers attempted to describe aud appraise
them in detail, and tlie list ot works
devoted to his name and fame will
lengthen continually. The subject
cannot tie exhausted. John Morgan
has written a hook, "Lincoln, Buy
and Mau," aud though it tells little
that is not familiar, still it is a
work that perhaps, goes a little
deeper into the "inside" Lincoln
than anything ever yet published.
From its pages it Is easy to cull
many paragraphs that were written
fully fifty years ago, but that are
still watchwords of eternal truth.
Speaking of Lincoln's famous debate
with Douglas, Mr, Morgan quotes
the following paragraph, which is a
never-to-be-forgotten gem: "When the
white man governs himself, that is
self-government; but when he governs
himself and also governs another
man, that is more than self-government. That is despot ism.
No man is good enough to
govern another man without the other's consent." "Repeal the Missouri
compromise, repeal all compromise,
repeal the Declaration of Independence, repeal all pnst history, still you
cannot repeal human nature."
"Our Republic's robe is soiled and
trailing in the dust. Let us purity
it. Let us turn ami wash it white
in the spirit if not in the blood ot
the revolution."
The author goes on through the lite
of this great American until his
assassination at Ford's theatre. Perhaps one ot the most beautiful passages in the whole book is the following written hy Lincoln's Springfield law partner, Mr. Herudon:
"From every direction demands come
for him (Lincoln) to speak or act,
but he resolutely refrained from adding to the volume of idle sound.
There was an anxious desire all over
thc country to take thc measure of
the untried leader. Lincoln is a man
of heart, aye, as gentle as a woman's and as tender—hut he has
will as strong as iron. He, therefore, loves all mankind, hates slavery
and every form of despotism. Lincoln will fail here, namely, it a epics,
tion of political economy—if any
question comes up which is doubtful,
questionable, which no man can demonstrate, there his friends can rule
him; hat when on justice, right, liberty, the government, tlic constitution and the union, there you may all
stnnd aside; he will rule there and
no man can rule him—no set of men
can rule him. There is no failure here.
This is Lincoln, "anil you mark my
prediction. You and I must keep
the people right. God will keep Lincoln right.1' Even though the dark
days of '61 to '05 have long past and
Lincoln is long since buried in his
martyr's grave, his great heroic,
lonely, melancholy life, his severe
wisdom, untiring patience and dauntless courage will always be a beacon
light, not only to Americans, but to
the whole civilized world.

THE BOW BRIGADE
The first public appearance of Co.
1, of the Cianbrook Boys' Brigade,
took place last Saturday afternoon
when the company, under the co -
mam! of Captain Main, Sub-Captain
Hughes and Lieutenant Selby marched up the main street to be addressed hy Mayor Fiuk. At l o'clock
tlie company fell in ut thc Gymnasium and the roll tall showed about
10 present. Very smart tho lads
looked in their forage caps, haversacks and brown belts. Ou the
order: "Compauy form fours, left
wheel, quick march," the boys
marched hy way uf Chinatown and
down the main street and halted
outside the Fiuk Mercantile company's store, where, with the hoys
standing at attention, Mayor Finn
addressed them, llie mayor complimented the cotnpaui on Us appearance uud then addressed a few words
to them along the lines ot loyalt
discipline and suliordtii; tion. Mr.
Fink said: "Your uniforms are nice
and no doubt thu instructions your
officers give you are thu best, but
unless you learn your l< ssolt, obey
orders and lake a heartfelt Interest
in the work yourselves all these outward signs will not avail much."
•*But," said Mayor Kink, "1 teel
sure that you will und 1 hope that
very shortly wc shall have a much
larger Boys' Brigade than we have
ul present." After being addressed
liy the mayor the boys marched to
Winning's studio, where they were
photographed. Great credit is due
Captain Main, Sub-Captain Hughes,
Lieutenant Selby and fcscrgeant Major
Wilson for Die work they have done
in bringing tlie company up to such
proficiency in so short a time. Corporals Burgoine, Bathie, Fowler awl
Cryderman handle their squads well.
It" is to be hoped that the Boys
Brigade will keep together and grow
because no institution can be better
for boys than one that-teaches discipline, neatness and self-control.

Some mouths ago Major George P.
Ahem, U.S.A., stationed in thu
Philippines, resolved to combine a
trip around tho world witb a leave of
absence and chose thc route across
Siberia. On bis recent return to
Manila he made public, as of interest
to travellers, details of time and
expense. His itinerary, somewhat
condensed, was as follows:

Major Abern's actual time, it will
he observed, was 67 days 15 hours.
He was not trying to "break a record." Nor did he choose in all
cases thc shortest route. He diverged from Berlin to Vienna, and the
shortest line from New York to San
Francisco ia not via New Orleans,
even though it be necessary to touch
ut Washington.
