II. Itiigeis and William  Rockefeller are

Speculation at Ottawa on
Sketch of His Career as Minister���
Henri Boarassa's Comments
on His Rise.
Ottawa," Aug,. 23.���The summer
passes aaid Sir Wlirrld appears to be
making little progress with the repairs
on his shattered cabinet. Having spent
two or three weeks In conferences and
disputatious on the subject, the Premier has concluded to go off In the woods
for a week's tisliiim and reflection.
Meauwhlle the Impression growB that
two or three ministers In the cabinet
must disappear. They are a source
of weakness rather than strength.
As predicted tlie rotten egg argument
applied to Mr. Ilourassa has been more
than a failure. It has given the Nationalist louder a strength and prestige that
he did not have before, and widens the
gap between him and the machine
Liberals or Quebec. Since the Quebec
meeting was broken up Mr. Bourassa
he addressed one large and attentive
audience ln another part of the province, and has arranged to apeak at a
number of meetings soon to be held,
several prominent men in the Liberal
party have caBt In their lot with him
and will speak al his meetings. In his
attacks upon corruption, graft. Immorality and extravagance in government
circles at Ottawa and Quebec Mr. Bour
nasa Is doing a good public service.
Whatever differences there may be be-
tween him and the Conservatives the
opposition party must have some re-
sited for him on account of the enemies
lie has made. Mr. Bourassa remains
and will remain a Liberal, hut the dominant Liberalism has greatly departed
rrom the standard to which he still adheres.
The return of Sir Charles Hlbbert
Topper to active political campaigning
In Eastern Canada Is an event of political Interest. Sir Charles Hlbbert ls one
lhe best stump sneakers in the country.
His own political life has been free
from any klud ol stain or reproach and
his ability and experience qualify him
for useful service. Leaving public life
much poorer than when he entered lt.
us did most of his colleagues. Sir Char
!ob Hlbbert has recently given his whole
time to prolesslonal work. He has es
tuhllshed a large and profitable practice
In Hritlsh Columbia. ThU ls where he
differs rrom several members and ex
members or Ihe laurler Government
whu were poor when they took office
and are now in a position to live high
without earning anything. In his recent addressea to his former constituents In Pictou and to his friends at
Hullfax Sir Charles Hlbbert strongly
commended Mr. llorden'a leadership
and announced that In the coming election ho himself would be prepured to
take the platform In Nova Scotia as
one of his supporters.
Speaking of public men who have
become opulent In offlce, the newspapers of Ottawu, Montreul and Toronto
glvu glowing descriptions of a remark
uble new yacht which Mr. Sirton hus
had built for himself. ThlB Is descrlb
ed us the finest und most costly bout

dationB, the Slltor. yacht has row, II

Amorlca. No expense hus been spared
In providing skilled officers und a pro
fcsslonal cook. LaBt year the news columns of tho papers were eloquent In
their descriptions of Mr. Slftons ��200,
000 summer homo near llrockvtlle and
now tho ex-minister has provided them
with 11 new sensation.
it Is hardly accurate to speak ol Mr.
Sirton a retired minister. He la still it
member of parliament, though he ls not
often seen In the House, lie la in effect
tho minister from the weBt though there
ure two nominal ministers to carry out
his programme. Western members of
Parliament supporting the government
do not trouble themselves aboul Mr.
Oliver or Mr. Templeinun. if they want
anything they go straight to Mr. Sifton.
While Mr. Oliver put up a frail defence
of lhe western hind deals carried
through since he became minister lt
was oiuiy to sen thut they were not his
deals nnd   lhat several  of  them   were
made without his consent. It is also
well understood that Mr. Oliver would
soon cease tu be a member of the government and would not long have the
support of the Turriffs, Adamsons and
Hiirrows If he refused to wear tae Sifton yoke. When one considers those
weBtern transactions, the Yukon record,
Mr. slfuin'B connection with the railway
history of the country', 'and the condition of hla own personal fortunes the
point will easily be seen or certain observations made ln parliament In 1906
by Mr. Bourassa.
"There remains the last but not the
least, Hun. Clifford Sifton. I du nut
know what his financial circumstances
are, but I du not think he comes under
the heading uf those Molt'-saeiHieing
herues whu have lost everything they
earned in their private capacity by serving the country. Everyone knuws that
the Hon Member fur Brandun arrived
In Ottawa a few years ago In very modest circumstances, 1 do not claim until
lt ls proved that the Hon. Member for
Brandun has built up his furtune at the
expense uf the peuple of Canada; but
he was at the bead of one of the largest
departments of this government, and If
he could, out of his salary uf $7,000
and his Indemnity, build a large fortune this proves that he did not sacrifice himself for the country. It Is
sometimes observed that politics act
In a strange way toward some people.
When I entered politics 1 had four
horses and a country house. But I have
seen members of the government who
when they entered lt had nu horse and
no house at ail, and now they have several  horses  and  several  houses.''
Seeng that Mr. Sirton is liable to return to Sir Wilfrid's Cabinet in the coming re-construction, and that even if the
government shall remain as it is he will
still be the dominant Influence in that
part of Canada, considering further that
Mr. Sfftun is one of tbe promoters of a
great steamship enterprise nuw under
consideration by the Government, tbe
reflections of the member for Labelle
are not yet ont of date.

Toronto, Aug. 23.���On pulp wood industry in Canada, W. H. Rowley, president of the E. B. Eddy company, comes
uut strongly as an advocate of prohibition of the exportation of saw logs and
pulp wood from Canada. If this Is not
dune then an expert duty upun them
should be enacted, in this way the
whole industry would be retained for
Canada instead of going to help build
up the United States. Canadian pulp
supplies are being depleted for American manufacturers and Canadian paper-
makers are unable to get enough pulp
to keep them going. Mr. Rowley Bald
he did not believe this would lead to
Buffering on the part of small holders
of Canadian pulp lands. They would get
their price for their wood the same as
now, and eventually a better oue.
Ottawu. Aug. 23.���While no definite
announcement as to the two cabinet
appointments to be made next week is
yet available, speculation hero Is rife
as to who will be the successors to the
Hon. Mr. Hyman and H. Mr. Emmerson
Sir Wilfrid Is keeping his own council
and will not announce his choice ol
new II.'iitnii* limits from Ontario nnd
New Ilrunswick until that choice has
been rutllled by the governor general
who returns to Ottawa on Sunday next.
The opinion here Is that Sir Wilfrid
wtll ask Geo. Graham, of llrockvtlle.

legislature, to take the vacant portfolio
from Ontario, ln New Brunswick ex
Premier Pugsley und Mr. Carvell, member for Carleton, ure the names most

Brief Enjoyment.
Toronto, Aug. 18.���The funeral of tho
late Miss Harriet Fraser, daughter of
Simon Frasor, the explorer of the great
llrltlsh Columbia river which bears his
name, took place yesterday from the
House of Providence to St. Andrew's,
beside tho body of her father and mother. Deceased wns 80 years of age. She
retained consciousness until she died,
her last hours being attended by her
two nieces. Misses Catherine and Margaret Fraser, daughters of Mr. Simon
Wm. Fraser, who arc the sole surviving
grand daughters of Simon Fraser. They
have three brothers, however, settled
ln the Unltod StateB. It was only a few
days ago that there was sent to MIbs
Fraser by the British Culumbla, government a lire annuity of S600, ln recognition of her brave father's pioneer work
for tho western province exactly ono
hundred years ago. A dying ronueFt
was left by Miss Fraser that the 11. C.

Good Effect of Appointment of New
Wardens and Deputies���More
Caution Shown.
Victoria, Aug. 23.���Reports^ from the
various firewardens received by Hon. F.
J. Fulton, commissioner of lands and
works, indicate that deapite the exceptionally dry weather of the paat few
months there have been fewer forest
fires and leas destruction from this
cause than ln former yeara.
Thla is attributed to the good work
which Is being done by the increased
number of fire wardens and assistant
wardens recently appointed.
At the last session of the legislature
126.000 was aet aside for forest fire
protection which bas enabled this extension of the system. Where formerly
there were but three or four paid
wardens there are now 24 Are wardens^
and 75 assistant wardens constantly
engaged ln patrolling their several districts.
It ts only within the last three or
fonr years that any organized effort
has been made to guard against and
fight forest conflagrations. Prior to
that time , practically every year, far
more timber was destroyed hy fire than
was cut by loggers. The exploitation
of the timber resources of recent years
and the recogn ition of the heavy toll
levied upon this, one of the greatest
of British Columbia's natural resources,
by fire following in tbe wake of exploration and settlement, demanded more
stringent measures of protection. The
enforcement of the Forest Fires' Pre
ventlon Act was sufficient for this.
Last year a small appropriation was
placed in the estimates to cover the
expense of the appointment of a few
fire wardens In addition to the police
and other government officials who
have heretofore composed the protection staff. These were stationed where
their services were most urgently needed and were vested with authority to
carry out the provisions of the act and
to engage help where necessary to
fight fires when raging. In addition to
the services of these district fire wardens, the services of a number of foremen and representatives of the local
lumber companies were requisitioned
as assistant fire wardens ln each district. A more efficient system of patrol
and protection was ln this manner at
forded, although good results were met
with it was recognised that more wardens were needed and so the measures or
the last session were adopted.
With the force of 24 wardens and
75 aaslBtant wardens in addition to the
services of various government officials
who have been requested by various
departments to render assistants where
ever poBlble, much better results have
been obtained, Thousands of feet of
timber bave been saved.
Eaat and West Kootenay, the Boundary, Slmllkameen, In fact all the lower
portion of the province licensed as timbered land, has been divided Into different districts with a warden for each.
Patrol Is also afforded Caiboo, Skeena.
At Hit and Vancouver Island.
In may places where the district is
large, one man can do much good
where a fire has not gained too much
headway until assistance can be secured with the aid of natural fire
It has been found that a warden's
presence ln a community often has a
beneficial effect on those careless or
thoughtless Individuals who leave a
camp fire unextinguished. The notices
of warning with which each warden
is supplied to post up throughout his
territory, is alao a reminder that care
must be taken.
Land clearing and sparks from engines are frequent causes uf conflagrations. Both these are dealt with under
the net, and wardens ln the vicinity of
lines of railways are requested to see
that modern and efficient spark and fire
arresters are maintained on all locomotives.
A great many Hies huve resulted
Iroin the careless operations of donkey
engines In logging camps and lo obviate this regulations were recently
made. These provided lhat a sufficient
clear space should be left around, each
engine, not to be less than fifty feet In
' extent     Tho regulations ordain  that a
of course, weather conditions
'fary, t ���ase    the    danger from
fire u. f be, at the same
time a too c... ad watchful control
cannot be maintained.
Reports Trom the various sections of
the province submitted by the officials
of the department show that there is
a growing readiness to comply with the
regulations of the act and an endeavor
to render all asslstun ce where possible.
The latter the department recognizes
is essential to make the system of patrol effective and without it the best
results cannot be obtained.
Detectives and Police Attempt to  Rid
Chicago of Crooks.
Chicago, Aug. 23.���The Chicago police
rounded out a day of warfare against
criminals last night by killing a holdup
man just after he had robbed a citizen,
and by capturing the robber's companion.
Thos. Kelly, who had a record of
crime, was the man who was killed.
His slayer was Policeman Patrick J.
Fee. Kelly had held up Michael O'Neill,
a Bteamfltter. A companion of Kelly's,
Thomas Roach, was arrested at the
same time. Early In the day the police
had gone actively to work to rid the
West side of crooks. As a result more
than twenty thieves and pickpockets,
some of them criminals of International
reputation, were shown to the detectives ln the central bureau at the nightly lineup. It was the result of the first
day's work of four squads of picked men
sent out to rid Chicago of the recent
Influx of criminals. This raid of criminals ls to be kept up, aays Chief S.
Shi pp. and ls to be extended to other
sections of the city.
Alberta Lumbermen Are
Say Thqr Hare Hade Lou Instead of
Profit���Point to Cost of Labor
and Transportation.
Dr.   Crutcher  of  Seattle   Convinced   ef
Identity  of John  Sharp and
Additional weight to the report published some time ago that John Sharp,
a caretaker for a coal company near
Quatsino Sound, is the Bill Quantrell
of civil war fame ls given by Dr.
Ernest Crutcher, of the Washington
Annex, who with William Prloe, another Seattle man, spent several days
camping with Sharp near Quatsino,-says
the Seattle Post-Intelllgenoer.
Dr. Crutcher believes that Quantrell
and Sharp are the same persona, and
produces a photograph, which the old
caretaker gave him, as evidence of his
theory, and calling to mind the Interest
Sharp showed tn details of guerilla
deeds ln Kansas and Missouri forty odd
years ago. Speaking of Sharp, Dr.
Crutcher said:
"Mr. Sharp ls a striking personage.
He Is much above six feet In height,
sinewy and ot unusual strength and
wears a very long, handsome beard.
His face ts kindly and geatal, lighting
with contagious humor when he smiles.
He ls tuctlturn and speaks with southern
accent. He ls 80 years old, but ls erect
as an Indian. He uses no spectacles to
shoot, and ls unerring with the rifle
He rold us he was a Kentuckian and
had lost his wife while residing In Texas
after the war of the rebellion. He was
a southern soldier and dwelt affectionately on the old days of the south when
I, also a southern man, referred to that
"I do not recall that we spoke of
Quantrell or any southern leader particularly, except that he was keenly
Interested tn hearing that my wife was
a sister to a colonel of cavalry on Stonewall Jackson's staff. Mr. Sharp Is an
extraordinary character and would attract attention ln any community be
cause of his herculean appearance and
chastened face. I am a student of people, and found this man a rare type.
ills hospitality alone stamped him as

of a coal company's properties ln Quatsino sound, and entertains all traveleis
who chance by his cabin. Deer abound
In numbers there and he gave me a fine
buck's head, of which I am very proud.
He haB a number of dogs, raises chickens, nnd the huge cabbage he holds ln
ids arm, evinces Ihe pride he has In
his garden. He seems content, with no
ombltterment that Is common to age.
That he haB had a thrilling career
would be Impressed on a visitor without hearing any details. Altogether,
1 have never met a more interesting
character and have a wish to meet him
again. The picture Is one he gave me,
though I tried to kodak him and spoiled
tho film in a boat swamping episode."

Edmonton, Aug. 23.���The prosecution
Just started by the attorney general's
department against lumbermen alleged
to be operating In Western Canadian
markets signifies the beginning of a
long and bitter struggle In the courts.
The lumber association has adopted a
plan for fighting the prosecution. It Is
expected that there will be a general
meeting of the members of the association called shortly for the purpose of deciding definitely upon a course of defence. The association, lt Is expected,
will deny that there is any understanding between the members such as would
tend to act In restraint of trade or
unduly control the price of stock. They
will probably produce evidence to show
that the high price ot lumber ls brought
about by the changed conditions of
things at the mills and in the lumber
camps. They will claim that owing to
the great increase in wages, the coat
of living, and operating, dealing In lumber cannot* be carried out at less figures.
In fact, lt la expected that the association wtll produce figures showing that
instead of making profits they will have
been actually suffering heavy losses.
nmahaats will be placed on the cost
of transportation. They will claim
that It ls utterly impossible to sell lumbar at reasonable prices ln face of the
exorbitant charges made by railway companies for freight. The evidence upon
which the prosecution will depend will
be largely gathered from retail dealers
and contractors and lt la expected this
win he ample to prove the existence of
a combine working to the detriment of
tha heat Interests of the people of the
West. The case will probably come up
at the fall session of the supreme court.
Jewish Banker of New York Says They
Are Unpatriotic.
New York. Aug. 23.���The American
Hebrew will publish today a letter
written by Jacob H. Schiff, the banker,
to Solomon Schlecler, president of the
Jewish Theological Seminary of America, In which he says, speaking as an
American, he cannot for a moment concede that one can be at the aame time
a true American and an honest adherent of the Zionist movement. The Jew
should not for a moment feel that he
has only found an asylum In this country, he must feel that he is in exile and
that his abode here Is only a temporary
or passing one. If those who come after
us are to be raised from the prejudice
of which this generation ls not unalterably suffering, we feel that politically
no one has any claim upon us, but the
country ot which we of our free will
have become citizens, that even if we
are Jews in fact there Is no string on
our cltlxenshtp.

Dowager of Spain.

If It be true that Earl Grey repudiates the remarks on aid to the navy
attributed to him by the Halifax correspondent of the telegraph service, that
correspondent should be removed. Of
course our grievance is nothing to our
contemporary's. The remarks attributed to the governor-general had. if
not truth, at least verslmllitude. Every
one knows Earl Grey's sentiments on
the subject of colonial co-operation ln
Imperial defence. But It was the same
correspondent who was responsible for
our contemporary's announcement that
Sir Charles Hlbbert Tupper was going
to oppose Mr Borden for the Conservative leadership. Every sane man knew
that that statement was wild but our
contemporary printed it without a suggestion of doubt. It ls strange that a
false report to our contemporary is due
to a stupid correspondent, a false report to ue is due to wicked Imaginings.
We congratulate our contemporary on
his   comfortable  ease of  interpretation.

Friday,  August 23,   1907.
Unique circumstances in the political
history of Canada have not only Justified but compelled the Cuiih.-rviitivi*
leader to revive as features of liis own
policy borne pledges formerly made l.y
Sir Wilfrid 1-aurler. Respect for provincial rights, purity of elections and
non-partl-ian civil nervice were once
avowed as principle* hy the Liberals ol
Canada, lt would be an Insult to the
intelligence of any man who has livid
In Canada for the last ten yearB to ask
him io b. Uev. Hint any attempt to
carry out a single one of them has Man
made by the Laurler government during
that period.
But K. I.. I'iirdi-ii is nun;.* than a
critic of the follies and vices of hla opponent*. The constructive lealunh ui
his programme, what may lie described
as the forward policy of the Coiis.rvn
tlve party, is the Nation! Policy of Sir
John A. Macdonald aa applied lo the
conditions and problems conlrontlui;
Canada today.
The Conservative party of Canada Is
historically the party of development*
If we OaYOOede that the parties united to'
carry Confederation, it is still the fact
that the four original provinces grew
Into the Dominion and extended to tho
Pacllic linder Conservative auspices.
Nor Is lt yet forgotten that the building
of the Canadian Paclllc and openlni; up
or the west were vehemently opposed
by Edward lilake and Sir Hieliard
Curtwrlght ��� Wilfrid Laurler didn't
count in those days. Edward Hlake
prophesied that C. P. R. receipts would
never puy for axb* grease; Sir Richard
Cartwright described the present "Granary of tiie Empire" as a frozen waste.
This of course Is ancient history, lt Is
only referred lo for the purpose of Illustrating a contrast.
Conservatives    have  never  opposed
any Liberal efforts at progress. It ls
true that they have had few opportunities. They supported the laying of the
llrltlsh Pacific cable, the flrst "All Red"
line, the National Transcontinental railway, and they now support and offer
improvements to the All-Red steamer
It will lie remembered that when the
Crand Trunk Pacific bill was before parliament Mr. liorden protested that If the
country had to find or guarantee prac-
tlcally the whole cost of construction,
as the late A. G. lllair declared was
being done, the country might as well
control Its own property and at least
share the profits of its operation. To
that contention he has always adhered.
Hi- has broadened it to a declaration of
the principle that when any Important
and valuable public franchise Is grained
to a corporation lt should be under gov
ernment control and contribute lu a
reasonable qY*gree to the public exchequer.
Iu regard to the All-Red mall service
and passenger connection between
Great Britain and Canada, Mr. liorden
lias cordially endorsed it, adding, how.
ever, the ail-Important recommendation
ihal similar provision be made for a
last freight service which will benefit
a hundred for every one who Is benefitted by tbe fast mall and passenger connection.
While declining, aB a leader of opposition haB every right to do, to commit himself to details of measures, Mr.
lioredn has earnestly advocated the
-treiigtliening In every possible way of
the lies, commercial, social and political, that bind the colonies to each
other and each to the mother land
Mr. Ilorden'B whole life has shown
personal Integrity lhat no one has dared
to Impeach, his course during the last
i even years lias shown capacity for
leadership, the policy he has now enunciated shows constructive statesmanship
of tlie highest order.

The last, and in fact the original survey of this 49th parallel, was made
from 1857 to 1861. The lines have consequently had to be re-cut to get
through the heavy timber with the transit lines. When a party comes to a
mountain that mountain baa to be
scaled no matter how difficult, and the
transit line run to the top and carried
over on the other side. Thus all members of one of these survey parties
have to be expert mountaineers. The
work on these boundary surveys Ib
greatly handicapped by the shortness
of the season, as the snow effectually
stops work.
When asked if there had been any
disagreements about the location of tlie
boundary Pror. King stated that so far
everything had gone along smoothly.
and no doubt it would continue to do so.
Prof. King, who is also a member of
the Alaskan boundary commission.
stated that the work in the northern
country waa even more difficult than
on the 49th parallel mountain section.
They have a large number of parties
working in the north laying out the
boundary on the 41st meridian, and
tbe work is strenuous at all times, most
of It being over ice fields and through
a mountainous country, but bo far they
had experienced no trouble in getting
This is Prof. King's first visit to Calgary in three years, and he w&b greatly

Reminiscences    of    Disraeli.    Gladstone

Mls;< BUeo Terry, in M.A.P., tells the
Htory of her fli-Bt marriage to Mr. G. F.
WattH, the famous painter. She Bays:
I waH not quite sixteen -years old, too
ynuiiK to be married even in those
dayH, when everyone married early,
liut 1 waa delighted, and my parents
were delighted, although the disparity
Of age lietwcen my husband and ine was
very great, lt all seems now like a
dream, not a clear dream, but a fitful
one which in thu morning out* tries to
tell. And even if 1 could tell i would
not. 1 was happy, because my face was
tbe type which the great artist who
married me loved to paint. I remember
Kitting to him in armor���he was painting Sir Galahad���for hours and hours,
and never realizing that it til heavy
until   I   fell   forward   faiutlng!
Uttle Holland House, where Mr.
Watt* lived with his friends, Mr. and
Mrs. Prinsep, seeintjd to me a paradise
where only beautiful things were al
lojred to 0000. All the women were
graceful, aud all the men were gifted.
There were Qladatone and Diaraell.
There waa .Browning. At Freshwater,
where I went aoon after my marriage,
1 flrst met Tennyaou.
As 1 write these great names I feel
ulmtwt guilty of an imposture! Such
names ure bound to raise high anticipations, and my recollections of the
men to whom some of the names belong
are so humble!
I sat, shrinking and timid, tn a corner���the girl-wife of a famous pointer.
1 was. if anything at all, more of a curiosity, a side-show, than hoatesa to
these diHtinguished visitors; for, after
all, the house belonged more to Mr.
Prlnsep than to Mr. Watts. Mr. Gladstone   seemed  to me  like  a  suppressed

hut the calm was the calm of the grey

later, when I met him again at the Lyceum, and became better acquainted
with him. this Impresaton of a volcano
at rest again struck me.
Of Disraeli I carried away even a
scantier impression. I remember that
he wore a blue tie, a brighter blue tie
than rooHt men would dare to wear, and
his straggling curls shook au he walked.
He looked the great Jew before everything. But "there ia the noble Jew," aa
George Meredith w rites somewhere,
"as well as the bestial Gentile." When
1 llrst saw Henry Irving dressed as Shy-
lock my thoughts flew back to the garden party at Little Holland House and
Disraeli. I know I must have admired
him greatly, for the only time 1 ever
saw him he was walking ln Piccadilly,
and 1 crossed the road, just to get a
good look at him. I even went the
Vngth of bumping into him on purpose.
He took off hiB hat, muttered, "I beg
your pardon," and passed on, not recognizing me, of course; but I had my
look into his eyes. They were very
quiet eyes, and didn't open wide. 1
love Disraeli's novels���like hiB Ue,
brighter in color than anyone else's.
Tennyson was more to me than a
magic-lantern shape flitting across the
blank of my young experience never to
return. The flrst time 1 saw him he was
sluing at the table in his library, and
Mrs. Tennyson, her very slender hands
hidden by thick gkivea, was atandlng
un a stepladder handing him down some
very heavy books. She was very frail
and looked like a faint tea rose. After
that one time I only remember her lying on a sofa.
In the evening I went walking with
Tennyson over the fields, and he would
point out to me the differences in the
different birds, and tell me to watch
their solid phalanxes turning against
the sunset���-the compact wedge suddenly narrowing sharply into a thin
line. He taught me to recognlge the
barka of trees and to call wild flowers
by their namea. He picked me the flrat
bit of pimpernel 1 ever noticed. Always I was quite at ease with him. He
was ao wonderfully simple.
At the time of my first marriage,
when I met these great men. 1 had
never had the advantage!���of a single
day's schooling in a real school. What
I have learned outside my own profession I have learned from my environment. Perhaps it ia thiB that makes
me think environment more valuable
than a set education and a stronger
agent in forming character even than
heredity. Perhaps I should have written
the externals of my character, for
primal, inner feellnga are, I suppose
always Inherited.

Revival in Mining.
\V. A Drewry has just returned from
completing a survey of about 3,000
acres of land on Slocan lake, for a local
syndicate. Tlie greater proportion ol
lhe tract surveyed is excellent land
well watered and well adapted for fruit
growing and agricultural purposes. Mr.
Drewry observed that there was a very-
large quantity of excellent tie timber
along the lake, which should prove of
even greater value than milling timber.
In the Slocan camp Mr. Drewry was
pleased to observe there is a marked
revival ln mining operations. This Ib
particularly the case In and around
Silverton, wher over 200 men are employed. Moreover, the people are now
convinced that the future of the mining
industry rests with themselves. A tram
from the llewett mine, 5,600 feet long,
to the Wakefield mill, was surveyed
and men are now engaged In clearing
the right-of-way.
