Pasnaio. N. J., July 23.���Eugene Raymond, an expert aeronaut, living with
LM Stevens, the balloonist, at 401 west
limit street. New York cily. was burned
by the explosion of a smoke pot after
making a successful ascension at Mill-
aide Pleasure Park, Hellevflle, yesterday. Raynaud is In the general hos
pltal. His loet, toga, hands, face and
neck were severely burned. Ills eye-
bruwK and lashes and much of the hair
on  his  head   are   also   burned   off.
Haymond'H trip yesterday afternoon
waa hla flrst thla Benson. "Johhny"
Mack, who usually makes the ascension
at IltllRlde. Informed the owuera of the
paik that he would not arrive in time
to make the ascension. Iluymond consented to take tils place. Ten minutes
before the ascent Mack arrived, but
Raymond was permitted to make the
flight This la the story he tells
about   It:
"The balloon went up all right. When
I thought 1 was high enough I lit the
fuse with my cigar and waited for the
cannon's discharge. The cannon ia of
galvanized Iron, and la SO feet long. I
lie In the cannon on my back, just aR
1 lie in bed, The only hole through
which 1 can nee Is where the fuse is.
The fuae Is 10 feet long, and runs from
a small hole in front of my face along
the bottom of the cannon to the mouth.
It runs to the mortar or smoking pot.
Its weight Is 40 pounds. When it lighta
It shoots off the same way as a skyrocket doeB���out one way. The mortar
pot rests between my ankles, and has
a Holid back so that Is cannot shoot
back. At my head Is my parachute all
bundled up. In one hand I nold a knife.
This Is to cut the rope which Is attached to the balloon from the foot of
the  cannon."
The ascenalon yesterday was all right,
but the mortar exploded. Mr. Raymond
said: "My feet, face hands and neck
were burned by It. but I kept cool, and
cut the rope the usual way. I w^s 5000
feet In the air, and could see wnter below me. It must have been under me
for fully 10 minutes. Tho parachute
was full of holes made by the explosion.
1 landed on the ground; I don't know-
where It was, but I do remember seeing logs when? some trees had been
cut down. 1 am told that It was In
Nntley.
"When I landed I tore everything
from my body. My tights were burning, and bo wns the parachute nnd the
American flag which I had on my
breast. The flag was given to me by
President William McKinley at the Pan-
American Exposition at Buffalo. Hundreds of people were by me when I
dropped, and they ruahed to get souvenirs. The flag, which looked as though
It had gone through a battle, wns taken
from my breaat by the crowd. They
tore ft Into shreds. The parachute waa
In tbe same condition. I don't see how
It was the the parachute didn't break
when It waa In the air."
Raymond says thut a doctor sent for
refused to attend him, saying that Raymond had no right to go up In a balloon.
Raymond was most warm In his praises
of the persons In whoae home he waa
cared for before the nmbulance arrived.
Raymond waa brought to this city in
the ambulance. The doctors said that
unless complications set in the aeronnut
will soon recover. Ills shoes were nearly burned off, hia arms and forearniH
badly scorched, and his face aud neck
burned deeply. Raymond has had other
narrow escapes. In 1 lagers town, Md.,
two years ago, he fell 300 feet Inlo a
celery patch. One log was broken. He
was Ave months In bed ns a result.

LARDER LAKE DISTRICT
Review of Development of Mines���
General Belief that Mineralized
Belt Goes to James Bay.
Torontii. July 23.���One of the first on
the ground at I.arder l.ake. Mr. .1. T.
TlKhe. was a visitor In the city yester
day. Mr. Tighe ha8 a part ownership
In no less than 4H claims, and should
the Larder Koldflelds prove up to expec-
latlons he will be one of the lucklesi
men In the district.
He tells some Interesting stories of
the work being done around there, par
licularly at Larder City. Two churches
are to be built, one by the Human Cath
ollcs. the other by the Methodist church
Both churches are now conducting services In the open. The latest addition
to Ihe religious side of mining life at
the Lake Is a quota of Salvation Army
men. II Is the Intention of the Army to
erect a barracks as soon as |>o8slble.
The (lovernment Inspector. Mr. A. H.
Kolisun. Is to visit Larder City on Saturday, for the purpose of laying out the
town site, lie is at present in Halley-
bury. -v
On his way down Mr. Tighe passed
a great many prospectors hurrying In
to the gold fields, mostly traveling by
canoe. From Larder City to Tom Town
Is a perilous route, involving an all-day,
journey wllh 11 portages and G rapids!
lo shoot. "The strike la a good thing
for Larder Lake," he declared. "Miners
are now iwurlng in there as prospectors,
and much new country Is bound to be
opened up.
A porphyry dike several hundred feet
wide, more or less, runs north-west by
south-east, out cropping on the southeast shore or the lake; on the Islands
and on the mining properties of tho
Cold King. Harris-Maxwell. Hlchardson.
Van Home Co.. N. Y. Brunf and Tighe
Syndicate. It has been traced northwest lo Moose Head Lake.
The formation la mineralized rock,
quartz and porphyry, carrying gold values; hanging wall is slate-schistose;
foot wall is a porphyry granite. This
formation is Intersected by a Blate for-
malion running east to west along the
north side of the lake. The contact
will be found on or In the neighborhood
of the mining claims of the Tighe Syndicate.
On the Adirondack clulm a shaft had
been sunk for a distance of about ten
fet on a conlact between the diabase
and green schist. The rock is very
heavily mineralized, the capping being
diabase and, at this point, being four
feet thick. Running through these
claims are small calcite stringers,
which on being assayed were found to
carry silver. This formation seems to
run iu a north-westerly direction across
the entire claim, and also runs a considerable distance to the north on other
claims which belong to the company.
On the Maple Leaf claim a shaft had
been sunk for about six feet. Running
through the rocks were several quartz
veins. The quartz was badly decomposed. Assays made on this decomposed quartz showed that it carried
gold.
On the Dublin Bay claim a shaft had
bten sunk for about eight feet on a
contact between the diabase and slate
rncks. The rock at this point is heavily mineralized, and although assays
were not matte from samples taken
from this shaft, yet some of the quartz
seems to be in such a decomposed state,
and being so close to the shaft on the
Maple Leaf claim, thut the owners do
not hesitate In saying that it should
carry the same values as the Maple Leaf
claim.
All the above claims belong to the
Tighe   Larder   Lake   Syndicate.
Reports have been received In the
city of a find of asbestos on the south
side of Larder Lake. Specimens received here are not extra good, but their
presence is regarded as an evidence of
tho existence of asbestos In that locality.
"Yes, the treasury stock Is being
tnken up by the shareholders rapidly."
was the statement made from head
quarters of the Foster mine yesterday.
The shareholders have until the 2uth of
the month to buy their pro rata shares
and from present Indications most of
lliem will "cash up."
The Foster stocks have been conveniently coarlng on the market during the
past few days, touching 80 yesterday.
The directors acknowledge that the
rise will help the sale of the treasury
stock, but smilingly deny having any
hand In the manipulation of the market.
Word received from the north yesterday afternoon Is to Ihe effect that the
men will Htart work today, as per previous announcement.
A visitor in the city yesterday was
a Mr. Fiune, an old West African coast
man, who has struck it rich in Larder
Lake. Before leaving for Toronto, he
sold all his claims and, so it Is understood, realized large sums. .Mr. Fiune is
a miner of long experience, and his
opinion is therefore worthy of attention.
lie states that Larder Lake Is tt i>er-
iiianent camp beyond all doubt. As a
qualifying clnuse. however, he declares
that the money will no doubt be made
out of high grade ors.
An Important announcement wus
made yesterday to the effect that
twenty-four of the Tighe claims���exactly half���were being pls.ced under separate control. Several bids have been
made for this block by American and
Ktigiish syndicates.
It Is understood Ihftt Law & Co. are
handling   the  negotiations.
The Cobalt Nugget says:
"In spite of the strike in Cobalt camp
a large quantity of mining machinery
Is still coming into the camp and is being installed by the various mining companies. A large number of the new
mines have ordered machinery for their
properties but say ft is the most difficult thing in the world to get it delivered. It is estimated that when the
North Bay smelter is in running order
there will be 200 mines shipping ore.
not counting any mines that may be in
a position to ship from Larder Lake.
This fact will possibly be a surprise to
tbe outside world, when they realize
what It means for one camp two years
old to have 200 mines in a position to
ship."
The Wet Process Reduction company,
of Toronto, have commenced the installation of an apparatus for a 50-ton plant
at Cobalt. It Is the Intention to manufacture lead by the "Klngsley" wet process, which is a radical departure from
any other method that is now in use.
Tbe company states that they will very
soon be producing white lead at the
rate of about 20 tons of a fine product
per day. The company claim that they
can treat ores that cannot be treated
by the smelters at the present time.
They alao will refine Cobalt.and extract
Cobalt and arsenic from It.
LEROI-MCKINNEY RICH
Large Body of High-Grade Ore Discovered In Boundary Mine���Plan
Extensive   Work.
After two months of work, the Phoenix syndicate that has a bond on the
LeRoi-McKlnney mine, located west of
Ruck creek and not far from Camp Mc-
Kinney, has proved the cxtmeuce ot* an
exceedingly large ore body. Dau Patterson, chairman of the syndicate,
came down from the property this week,
and feels confident lhat they have what
will, with time, prove to be one of the
most important mining propositions in
the Boundary.
For the last two months the small
force of men has been cross-cutting the
ledge ou the surface, and find thut tt
meausures 90 feet In the clear from
foot wall to hanging wall, lying between granite and diorite. Close to the
banging wall there are four feet of ore
carrying free gold, which can be plainly
Been. Next lo this are eight feet carrying native silver, while the copper
values are everywhere apparent. Samples are now being tested, but there Is
little doubt that high values will be
found when the returns are received.
A new shaft is being sunk on the Le-
Rol close to the hanging wall, which it
Is the intention to put down at least
100 feet, when cross-cutting will be done
and the extent of the ore body proved
at that deplh. The shaft Is now down
some 30 feet, and it Is planned to Install some machinery before long to
facilitate operations. There seems to
be every evidence that the boys have a
good thing In the l.eltol. and It goes
without saying that the members of the
syndicate are more than pleased with
the result of development thus far.
About the middle of May the bond
was taken on the LeRoi from James
Copeland, the owner, for $30,000 by the
10 Phoenix men interested, including
Dan Patterson, Palmer Cook, John McKay, N. Bailie, Walter Cook, Walter
Ross, John Wilson, F. J. McDougall, A.
A. White and G. Kay. A peculiar feature of the bond Is that floo a month
bonus must be paid during its life In addition to the 130.000.���Phoenix Pioneer.
To Sell the Marion.
Washington, D. 0, July IB.���Bids will
bo opened tomorrow for tho purchase of
the old wooden sloop-of-war Marlon, at
the Mare Island navy yard. California,
and the navy department is hopeful that
the result will be more successful than
the previous efforts made to dispose of
the old vessel, which has been reported
unfit for war purposes. The Marion was
built by the United States at Klttery,
Me.. In 1871-75. She has a displacement of 1900 tons, a speed of 11.25
knots and an Indicated horsepower of
1100. She has a length of 216 feet,
a breadth of 16 feet 6 inches. Of recent
years she hns been used by the naval
militia of California lor training purposes.

LEADS TO PREFERENCE
Papers  Comment oa   Rejection of
Proposal���Balfour's Words
Again Misunderstood.
London, July 23.���The acute character
of the conflict among ministerialist!*
over the All-Red project is reflected in
the statements and counter statements
regarding the government action. Mr.
Lloyd-George and other ministers favorable to the project are much annoyed
at their own organ's announcement yesterday of a refusal of the subsidy, especially seeing that Sir Wilfrid Laurier
has not yet sent details upon which
their final decision is supposed to partially rest.
All that today's official statement
means is that the government's decision is not to be formally announced
for several weeks.
Free trade opponents still maintain
that the decision must be hostile unless
the ministry is prepared for heavy
squalls. On the other hand, ministerial
Imperialists, like tbe Chronicle, maintain that this Is the Liberal premier's
effective alternative to tariff preference.
Nevertheless, the Unionist attitude is
generally favorable.
The Pall Mall Gazette says today:
"So long as the subsidy is granted the
government's motives matter very little. It is an installment towards a
larger policy of union with the colonies.
It cannot stand in the way of either
preference or  tariff  reform."
Mr. Balfour's contribution to the colonial preference debate received no
mention in the Times, the Morning Post
or the Telegraph. Radicals satirically
claim that Mr. Halfour has once more
eluded the grip of the tariff reformers.
The Morning Post says: "Mr. Lloyd-
George was content to treat the whole
business as nothing more than an attempt on the part of the tariff reformers to chase Mr. Balfour into their
camp. Apparently he cannot realize
that there is a growing body of public
opinion to which no politician on either
side is an object of any Importance
whatever, except In so far as he has
power to further obstruct the great national interest."
The Chronicle says: "The majority of
the Conservative party are angry with
their leader for declaring so decisively
against the only means by which colonial preference can be obtained, namely a tax on food."
Mr. Balfour, however, certainly declared decisively in favor of colonial
preference.
Attemped Murder by  Hindu.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Grand Forks, July 23.���In response
to a summons to go to Cascade last
night Provincial Constable Dinsmoro
has left for that town, the occasion being an attempt of a Hindu employee at
the sawmill at Cascade to rob and murder another Hindu and brother workman. It is reported that the injured
man is In a critical condition. Constable
Dlnsmore will arrive In Grand Forks
Borne time today with his prisoner.
Chief Constables of Canada.
Montreal, July 23.���There was a
large and representative attendance
this morning at the opening of the annual meeting of the Chief Constables'
Association of Canada. Among the
prominent police officers taking part
are Chief Trudel of Quebec, Chief Inspector Archibald of Toronto, Chief
Slemin of Brantford. Chief Genest of
Hull, Inspector McClelland of Toronto,
and Chief Harrison of Westmount.
FOR FOREST PROTECTION.
New Vocation Opened to Young America���Qualifying  Examination.
���Washington. D. C, July 23.���The civil
service examinations to 'oe held today
for the position of forest ranger in the
United States forest reserve service afford nn excellent opportunity for young
men to get a start In a now profession
suitable as a life business. The profession of expert forester Is rapidly assuming a high Importance In this country and no better opportunity to learn
It. thoroughly can be 'ound than in the
government service. Tho position of
forest ranger offers tho additional advantage that a man can earn n living
while learning the business.
The forest rangers are the men who
actively patrol the different reserves
and protect them from fire and depredation. The pay for the beginner Is $720
n year. Out of this salary he Is required to furnish his own horses and
feed them. But the policy of the department Is to promote the men who
show an aptitude for the work and thus
the salary gradually goes up until the
best rangers get as high as $1,400 a
year. They live in cabins in the woods
and are allowed to have their families
with them if desired.
A candidate for ranger must be In
good health and able to take care of
himself and horses In regions remote
from settlement and supplies. He must
have knowledge of trail building, construction or cabins, riding, packing.
/. ""nd must know something of sur-
, ^My- .'.muling and scaling timber,
tL_, * 'I* *�����, mining: and live
stock: .il* i \ .yna and New Mexico
ho must know .ough Spanish to do
business with Mexican users of the national forests. Working under the direction of the supervisor the ranger's duties include patrol u> prevent, fires and
trespass, estimating, surveying and
marking timber, supervising of cutting,
and similar work, all of which a man
thoroughly familiar with forested regions and possessing a fair education
ought to fulfill. Experience, health and
sound knowledge of forest conditions
are sought by the government rather
than hood education. From ranger the
promotions lead to the position of supervisor with salary possibilities running
up to $2,000.
FARTHEST JORTHWEST
Pioneer nf Winnipeg Telle Story of Big
Development in Peace River
Dlitrlct.
One of the original old-timers of Winnipeg arrived in this city yesterday
from Edmonton, where he has resided
for many years. The gentleman referred to is Murdock McLaaod, who came
to the West with the Hudson'* Bay
company and lived for some years within the Aretlc circle. He went through
a large portion of the far North and
West and was associated with some of
the best known of the old-timers of the
company who are now reiident of Winnipeg. He returned to t'n<? city In 1867
and in 1868 he made a trip to Prince
Albert at the request of tbe late Rev.
Dr. Black with the carts of the mission
there. In 1867 he purchased land at
High Bluff from halfbreeds resident
there and was one of the first white
men to take up land In that vicinity
He subsequently removed to West-
bourne and Gladstone and in 1879 went
to Edmonton, believing that the railway
was to be built Into the country at once.
He took up land at Belmont, five miles
from the city, and has continued to live
there until the present time. He has
now sold his property In the Edmonton
country and la removing to the Oka-
nagau valley, where he will spend the
balance of his life.
Mr. MeLeod was a member of the
council of 40 in the stirring days of the
Rtel rebellion and was the second man
condemned to death by court martial
by Kiel. Scott was shot on Friday and
the order was that Mr. MeLeod should
be shot on the following Sunday. His
life was saved owing to the fact that
he was personally known to the French
soldiers and these refused to shoot him
until the return of the bishop. If the
bishop said he was to be shot, then well
and good. Fortunately no other events
occurred and his life was* saved.
In the winter of 1881 Mr. MeLeod
drove all the way from Edmonton to
Winnipeg and back. The journey eastward was made in 20 days and tho return trip In 30 days. Six men were
taken back to Edmonton, one of them
being Alex. Ounlap, then of Winnipeg.
At the time of the rush to the Klondike overland, Mr. MeLeod sketched for
Hon. Frank Oliver the best route to the
city of Dawson. He had become familiar with the country of the Far North
when travelling for the Hudson's Bay
company, aud states that if the travellers who attempted the overland trip to
Dawson and the Klondike had followed
the route suggested by him they would
have reached the country with much
less difficulty.
Of tbe north country in general Mr.
MeLeod speaks In the highest terms.
All of the peace river country', he de*
Clares, will soon be settled and brought
under cultivation. He states that while
In the service of the Hudson Bay company he saw wheat which had been
sown on May 26th, iu the stock on
August 1st. This rapidity of ripening
was due to the extreme length of the
day, summer frosts being unknown owing to this cause. The company, he
stated, had been willing to keep the
facts in reference to the value of the
Far North hidden In order that they

Russian Police Anticipate Attempt
on Czar���Socialists Will Hold
Meeting in Sweden.
St. Petersburg, July 23.���The police
have arrested on the street a studenr.
and a young woman whom they have
long suspected to belonging to the-military organization of the revolutionists.
On searching them the police found
plans of both the Tzarsko-Selo and Pe-
terhoff palaces, maps of tbe St. Peter
and St. Paul fortresses and the fortress
at Cronstadt and a paper showing the
disposition ot tbe troop* In tbe St.
Petersburg barracks. The police believe thut they have nipped In the bud
another attempt on the emperor.
The Constitutional Democracy Congress, which it was planned to bold
here, has been forbidden by General
Drachefski, prefect of St. Petersburg.
The Constitutional Democrats, nevertheless, hope to hold th econgress In Kin-
land In the eary part of September. If
tbe Finnish authorities refuse their permission, Prof. Mllukoff, tbe leader of
tbe party, says tbat it will be beld In
Sweden, but he fears that onoe the Constitutional Democrats leave tbe country so near tbe election time the police
will place auch obstacle* In their way
aa they did in the case of the Social
Democrat*' conference In London that
they will be unable to return in time
to participate in the election*.
EDUCATIONAL  REFORMS.
Manitoba   Department   Make*   Radical
Change* In Curriculum.
Winnipeg. July 23.���Owing to the
present public school curriculum ot Saskatchewan having proved unsatisfactory
in curtain particulars, the department
of education has recently drawn up a
preliminary draft of proposed changes.
The existing course is divided into five
standards, each standard being designed
to cover one year's work. Experience
has taught, however, tbat this division
is too heavy or crowded and a certain
amount of congestion has resulted.
To do away with this the department
h is drawn up the aforementioned draft
of proposed changes. The draft is divided into three parts, the first dealing with subjects of a general nature*
and physical training; the second deals
with the commoner subjects of instruction and the third deals with the whole
course In detail.
It is proposed to regard drawing and
music as compulsory subjects only in
schools which are open throughout the
year and in graded schools. In other
schools these subjects are to be optional. They are also to be optional In
schools where the foreign element prevails. In these latter schools special
stress will be laid upon writing, reading .spelling, language and arithmetic.
It Is proposed not to teach history and
grammar as regular subjects until grade
five Is reached. History it Is proposed
to introduce by oral Instruction Imparted by the teacher, whilst grammar
It Is proposed to teach in connection
with composition.
The draft of the proposed changeB
will be circulated amongst the schools
before being finally printed. It Is also
probable that the department will call
together Inspectors and principals of
schools with a view to receiving suggestions and making amendments before submitting the changeB to tbe educational council with a view to authorization.

FORBIDDEN   TO   INVESTIGATE.
A Toronto editor has acused Canada
.of UelD�� a land ol* imitators, wltli no
oriBinallly. This is very warm weather.
but. after- making every reasonable allowance, the Torontonlan owea tt thousand apologies to Sir Wilfrid Laurler,
to whom he has been scandalously unjust. Sir Wilfrid is no Imitator. In the
last three years he has done tblnsi
never dared before in countries enjoying constitutional government.
The chief function of the opposition
in the legislature ol' all countries is to
criticize and hold up for public exttiniiitt
tlon every act of tin- government It
is assumed that the the DOWi r tin.I privilege of the opposition to do so act titt a
controlling Influence on the government
and, on the whole, make lor righteous
ness.
But Sir Wilfrid, in the plenitude ol
power, could not lirouk such control. It
was not consonant with his dignity 'ha'
anyone should be In a position to sit itt
Judgment on the conduct of himself, oi
of his servants, or of his servants' ser
wants.
The only way to prevent it was b)
discipline of his own party. They must
be schooled to refuse to the enemy tin
hlBtorlc and constitutional right tn < I
amine the public accounts. With a tol
lowing of average intelligence and any
pretence of honesty the feat would hav<
been Impossible, but Sir Wilfrid hits BC
compllshed It and thereby set a nev.
record for prime ministers. The CHosufl
Is nothing to the vole excusing wit
nesses and ending discussions. Oi
course, for the success of tlie Hick, o
Bafe majority Is required, devoid of In
telllgence and conscience. Sir Wilfrid
had arranged for thut In advance. Hrit
Ish Columbia contributed seven to hi:
regiment of silent voters who know only
that the wicked opposition must not bl
allowed to discuss government deals.
Of the success of Sir Wilfrid's policy
ol" suppression the Toronto News, whose
editor is an admirer of the premier,
says:
"That bluff old veteran of the sea.
Cepl.u.ln MeNichol, of the Victorian, re-
poits passing through a fog which lasted for 130 hours and hopes he may never
see the like of it again, in his opinion,
it is the greatest fog in captivity, cer-
tainly the longest, highest and thickest he ever say. If the good captain
had followed the life political rather
than the existence maritime, he would
have seen fogs which far surpassed the
ephemeral mists hanging around the
Banks of Newfoundland. For example,
there was one fog, dense, mysterious
and distinctly unpleasant, which enveloped the harbor of Parliament Hill,
not for hours, but for weeks. Somewhere In the heart of it were tiie names
of those persons forming the North Atlantic Trading company. The good
ships Borden and Foster, accompanied
by a tnotor Ixjut Uourassa, cruised abonl
lor days iu a vain attempt to discover
anchorage, hut finally found themselves
on lhe outside edge of the bank with ii
clear sky and a fair sou'-sou'-west wind,
TJcy did not make another attempt to
run   through  the  mist
"Then at the present moment a 'l��n-
tlon particular' has settled down which
defies the keenest skippers. For weeks
Cap'ns innumerable have been endeavoring to find wharf berths, vacated when
the Hyman cleared for Pacific ports,
and the Kmmerson was warped out on
a zoological voyage to Ephesus. Cap'n
Sutherland, who has served as First
Mat" on the Ship of State, Ib lying outside the fog bank along with Cap'n
Archie Campbell, Cap'n Calvert, and
other seasoned old salts. Hut they cannot pick up the harbor buoys, and so
they are all lying at anchor, waiting
either for the fog to lift or for Harbormaster Laurier to return from Europe.
FOgs! The Political Sea Is full of
them."
EDITORIAL  COMMENT.
For the eleventh consecutive time, In
fact ever Blnce A Sullivan became principal, Nelson public school has made an
almost faultless record In the matter of
preparing and qualifying ItB pupils Im
admission to Ihe courses of the high
school. The work done by Mr. Sullivan,
as frequently acknowledged by himself,
Ib made  possible by  the splendid  set-
vices or the staff. It may bo some consolation to the citizens lo know that
Nelson has the best teaching staff lu
the province. It helps to atom1 for the
worst   building in the province.
it is certain now that Sir Wilfrid
made a strenuous efforl to have the
words "final and unalterable" restored
tn his amendment In the House of
Lords. The Toronto tllobo and the
smaller fry of .Machine organs will discover now that the phrase is of the
highest  Importance.
If tin' directors of the Nelson Fali-
do not make a success of the enterprise this year, il will not be for the
lack of unsolicited but perfectly well-
intentioned advice from superior persons.
STRIFE   MAY   LAST   LONG.
Many Cobalt Managers Determined  Not
to   Yield.
Cobalt. July 22.���Two or three of tho
mines have been won over by the union.
These tire the Foster. Temaskatning and
the Hudson Hay, and .Temlscamange
the latter two are working, while the
Foster will resume operations Thursday,
with probably a force of 80 men. One
of the union leaders now states that the
Foster men were called out through a
misunderstanding. The general opinion
is that the other mine owners intend
to hold out to flieir own scule. They
claim lhat the new schedule they have
ttdopted means a general increase on
all the mines, a table being computed
by experts which, so far, goes to show-
that on 10 mines the wages all round
had been increased $:"i.07 per day, or
over $12,000 annually, and that on these
lit there were on the payroll 10B3 men.
These mines are the Trethewey. La
Hose. High! of Way, O'Brien, Niplsslng.
Coniftgas, HtilTiilo. Silver Queen. Town
Site and Colonial. On one of them
alone it would be nearly $6,000, and on
another $6,327. With such.a general
increase the mine owners feel that their
efnloyees have been treated fairly, and
consequently are now not likely to give
way to the union. Some of the managers. In fact, refuse to take back union
men even at the owners' scale. One
man applying for work today was first
asked if he was a union man or a sym-
pttihiZHi* with the union; not being a
union   man   lie  was  given   work.
Kaiserin Frightened.
Herlin, July 22-���The empress, who Is
noted for her pluck on horseback, apparently Is not so courageous while in
an automobile. She Intended to visit
Konigsburg Saturday in her touring
car, and was within three miles of her
destination when loud ami repealed explosions in the motor led her lo believe that her life was in danger. Assurances by her chafieur that there was
not the least danger were of no avail
anil no other vehicle being available the
empress proceeded in a wagon to the
railway station   nearby.

William AMuaaw Ross.
Along about 1890 I was passing
through Calgary on my way to the boom-
Wust Kootenay, we were just gathering
up In the smoker at the rear end of
sleeping car���time 8 a. m.��� and the
train was jtiHt starting to gather speed.
The crowd consisted of live or six commercial men on thfir way to the coast,
who had been swapping yarns all the
way from Winnipeg. There was also
a New York lawyer, an Kngllsh tourist
and myself. We could see Calgary
spread out before ua, the sun shining
on tho si ow capped Rockies and the
sceno was about as fine as scenery is
made. The New York lawyer broke the
sileuce. "Qentlemen. you are looking at
the Denver of Canada, but now that Alberta is on the bum and Kootenay is on
the hum, I am going out to Spokane and
Seattle and try to interest my-aelf in
the promotion of Kootenay copper properties."
That lawyer's words were prophetic.
His name was Charles Sweeney and he
is now one of the rich men in Spokane
and has made a" big clean-up, first in
Hosland camp, then in Republic camp,
then at lluffaloe Hump, and he is worth
all kinds of money, has a big house near
Patsey Clark, Colonel Payton and a
half-dozen other Spokane magnates, who
made their pile in the Rossland boom.
1 was a kid then, retnrning to the Kootenay from a visit to the east, and I had
learned the wisdom of keeping my face
closed and eyes open, but I never got
that lawyer's words out of my head and
I used to lie awake nights wishing that
I had $1.'imii in hard cash that I could
buy lots in the "Denver of Canada."
But unfortunately I did not have the
price.
Rut I believed with all my heart and
soul thut West Kootenay waa the richest mineral country on God's green
earth, and I believe so still. Some
day Nelson will be another Creede Colorado. At present it is haunted by remittance men as Calgary was two years
ago. When the remittance men get'
pushed aside by the newcomers from
every mining trtate in the union, Nelson
will he on the hum again, but Calgary
will not be on the bum, but following
out the destiny laid down for her by
the Phophetic Charles Sweeney, "The
Denver of Canada."
These are my reasons for believing
in the future of Nelson, British Columbia. I may be wrong, but I hope I
am  right.    The  ridge of hllla  lying to
the southwest of Nelson, are, I believe,
full of freemillfng gold and there is already, partly developed, one of the finest water powers In America at Bon-
nington Falls, that insures cheap crushing of  freemllling quartz.
Every stream that flows off that
ridge of hills carries piacer gold and
as early as 1872 they were profitably
worked by placer miners. If you do not
believe me go and look at the rotten
sluice boxes, weed grown ditches and
piles of gravel that are to be found
along the north fork of the Salmon,
along Hall Creek, along Give Out Creek,
along Sand Creek, Forty Mile Creek,
Bird Creek and Rover Creek.
There is also a line of freemllling
gold mines, which, if (hey had been
worked as hard by practical mining men
as they have been worked hy the Toronto broker, would have made fortunes
instead of emptying the pockets of Toronto servant girls, preachers' widows
and orphans and other unprotected people who see in the ad. of the Toronto
Mining Shark  (not miner, but broker).
The said Toronto broker has put Rossland on the bum, has put Rainy Lake on
the bum and is now busily engaged in
putting Cobalt, Ontario, on the bum���
and still people wonder why mining
does not pay. Mining would pay and
pay well if the promoters would try
as hard to follow the ore in sight as
they try to tap the pockets of rich
mineral contained in the jeans of the
speculating public. Kootenay is gradually living down mining strikes, Toronto brokers and other blights, but
Kootenay, will never live down the vast
wealth that lies barely sccatched at
Rossland, Phoenix, Sandon. Ymir and
Nelson. I could name a half dozen
others, but I am not a Toronto broker
and have no wild cat stocks for sale.
But the Kootenay has all the water
squeezed out of the mining companies.
All the mines that are at present working are paying their owners well. There
isn't much roar about it as the present
owners are not anxious to sell, but the
chart of our production in West Kootenay   looks  something   like   this

lieve me send to Victoria for the government reports of mineral production
for the last five years. This chart will
keep on working up, until the moneyed
men wake up some fine morning and
then say: "Why Kootenay is producing
40,000,000 of coal, copper, gold silver,
lead Iron and zinc: I will look into the
matter this minute;that country must
be all right. It appears to me I heard
something about 15 years ago about a
place called Rossland, that F. August
Heinze, Jim Wardner. John M. Burke,
Patsy Clark, John R. Cook and the Toronto brokers said was going to make
another 'Butte.' " The above named gentlemen have made their pile in Rossland and are operating in other places
and we will hear from the Toronto
broker when the next mining boom
strikes the Kootenay and the next Kootenay boom will make Cobalt. Ontario,
(with its mininn laws made by farmers
in the interests of graTt-eT*a> look like
30 cents and the voice of the croaker
will no longer he heard In Nelson, but
it will be hard to get a bed there and
billiard taoles will once more tempt the
weary to sleep by the death-like rattle
of the poker chips. Take my tip, watch
Nelson grow. I am sorry to say I have
no real estate there, as of old. I never
have the price, but I have been around
some and the papers say I cannot
write so they will not pay for the stuff.

Ebbuit, the secretary of ibe 20,00(1 club
and the board of trade, eommunica'ed
at once with Mr. E. J. Coyle at Vancouver, urging, on behalf of both these
institutions, that Nelsou tljould be Included in the itinerary. The matter
was at once taken into favorable consideration with the result that the return journey from the Coast will be
made by way of Nelson and a day will
also-be spent by the journalists at Kossland. The visit of so distinguished a body
of newspaper men connot but be of the
greatest benefit to the country at large
and to this district in particular and
they may be assured that not only will
they receive a hearty welcome but that
Information of interest, both to themselves and the public for whom they
writ-H, -w\\\ be gladly affurdud. UutUir
these circumstances the advantages of
-<ueh institutions as the 20,000 Club and
the board of trade are apparent.
