the Canadian railway laws require it,
but ut points where the truck pusses

Democratic  Gains   Awaken   Plutocrats
to  Danger.
Chicago, Nov. 17.���The Pennsylvania
Railroad company, which recently an-
nounoad an Increase in wages for its
166,000 employees, to become effective
December 1, la not the only large corporation that has found it necessary,
or ut least advisable, to take such action. The unBcatlng of some of the old
Republicans In Congress and the Demo-
cratlc gains made In that body by the
late election has awakened the big corporations to Ihe Industrial unrest all
over the country. The result will be
that many of the trusts ure preparing
to raise wageH and thus avoid strikes
on the part of tli*-ir. men.
The Standard Oil company has decided to in crease the wages of its (10,-
000 employees in different parts of the
United States. Another of the big combines to take similar action is the Amalgamated Cupper company, generally
known as the Copper Trust, which has
proposed a ten per cent wage Increase
to the 15,000 men lt employs In its
mines in Montana. The I'nited States
Stee! Corporation, the world's greatest
trust, Is, according to word received
trom New York, considering the quea-
tion of a wage Increase for Its army of
175,000 employees.
Railroads which have either made
concessions to their men or have taken
the matter under consideration include
the New York Central, the Lackawanna, the Philadelphia and Reading, the
Northwestern, the Chicago, Milwaukee
and St. Paul, the Rock Island, and the
St. Louis and San Francisco system.
Deserted Spouse  Pursues Errant  Hus-
band 7000 Miles. ^
Fiichbin-g, Mass., Nov. 17.���^rhe case
of Jacob Bloomberg, whose wife tra-
veled 7000 miles to find him and prosecute him for bigamy, was called for
trial loday. A score of years ago
Bloomberg married u beautiful girl iu
Roiimauia. Tbey emigrated tu Hucnos
Ayres, where they lived a number of
years. Six children were born to them.
Bul after a time the woman's beauty
faded and Hloomberg's business, that
of a baker, did not pay. The man became discouraged. He talked the matter over Willi Ills wife and It wus decided that he should come to New
York. When he had secured a position he was to send ror her and the
children. The plan was carried out���
up to the point where Bloomberg was
to send for his family. He paid no attention to them alter arriving In New
York. Mrs. Bloomberg became tired ot
waiting, burrowed money and set sail
tor New York, leaving her children
With neighbors, 7000 miles behind her.
When she leached the metropolis the
Jewish societies aided her. Tbey found
that Bloomberg had married his mistress after being in New York a short
time. The wile traced the couple lo
Fitchhurg. When siie located them
she first hud her husbund placed ln
jail and then hunted up a good lawyer
to prosecute hlm.

R. J. Klrkwood, the Slocan milling
man, is in the city. There is some improvement In Hie mining situation
throughout the district, but Mr. Klrkwood Inclines to the belief that permanent advancement will only come
when a smelter Ih built Itl the Slocan.
Ho believes that an effort In this direction should be made n't once.

Fowler's Loss Through Not
Having a Pull
Laurier Governmenl Discharges Innocent Postmasters and Allows
Officials to Electioneer.
Ottawa, No.v 17.���lit the insurance
Investigation, continue*] last week here,
Mr. Shepley, counsel for the government, thoughl It proper to inquire
olosely into the purchase by George
Fowler, M. P., and Kufiis Pope, ex-
M. P., of 200,000 acres of land from the
C. P. R. company. Mr. Shepley labored hard to make It appear that these
buyers and their associates bought on
favored terms and that the land was
worth a good deal more than they
paid for it. If that were so il would
be better for the Union Trust company
and so for the Foresters, who afterward became interested in the property. But tt was shown by the evidence ot C. P. R. Land Agent Griffin
that tbe price received was the best
that his company had been able to
obtain for similar blocks of land up
lo that time. The price advanced afterward, and ihe subsequept owners
made money out of the transaction as
did all other purchasers of Western
lands. Mr. Griffin < awore positively
thnt he was not Instructed to favor
these purchasers over others and that
no special advantage was given them.
If Mr. Pope, Mr. Fowler and their
associates had been government supporters in parliament or government
leaders ont of parliament, or had been
relatives or silent partners of Liberal
members or ministers it would not
have been necessary for them to go
to the C. P. R. and buy land at the
market price. Instead of paying $700,-
000 for 800,000 acres, selected out of
226,000 acres, some of the land remote from projected railway lines,
ihey would havo gone lo the government and got tho same quantity, with
the privilege of picking it up in small
lots any time within the next six years
out of 750,000 acres, along proposed
railway routes, paying $200,000 Instead
of $700,000. Instead of paying $20,000
when the option was taken and $11(1,-
666 as a first payment when the sale
was completed, they could have saved
their money, as they would not have
been asked to pay for the lands uutil
they took them, or to take them until
they had boon sold to the settlers.
Moreover, they need have paid no ca��h
but could have settled with scrip costing about 25 cents on tlie dollar. As
they were Conservatives without a
government pull, Ihe Pope and Fowler
syndicate was aide lo make only $1 an
ncre, or $200,000 on their Investment
and risk. Had Ihey boon Adamsona or
connections of the Turlff family, or intimates of Ihe minister of the interior,
their gains would hnve been $7 or $8
an acre with no cash investment and
no risk.
According to Sir Wilfrid Laurier Mr.
Fielding has been a party to a grave
election scandal. Sir Wilfrid in July,
1005, assented to a resolution adopted
by lhe house sotting forth that "no official should be permitted lo engage
in partisan work oT any description
in the election of a representative to
parliament." The premier declared:
"I have no hesitation at all in saying
that I am ready on the part of the
govornm.nl to accept this resolution."
In the same speech Sir Wilfrid said:
"The official   who  lakes  an offensive
pnrt, in election datnpalgss ma-fees himself and his iiarty a scandal." Sir Wilfrid Laurler showed his had faith not
long after when he allowed his minister of Ihe Interior to eng'nge a government officer at Fdmonton to take
part in the autonomy election light,
to distribute campaign hinds, to arrange for Iho purchase of barrels of
beer for tbe Gallclun voters as nn Inducement for (hem to attend political
meetings, and generally to make himself as offensive a partizan could be.
Perhaps noHung better could be expected from an official who had been
twice sentenced to jail for stealing,
and was charged while in office with
several other acts of then and embezzlement. The minister who secured an
Increase of pay for the official while
so accused, and who replaced him in
office at double his former salary after his Iwo terms In jail, would nnt-
urally expect campaign service from
Mr. Fielding's case is perhaps more
surprising. He was a* party to Sir
Wilfrid's declaration. Me hns just
been unseated for violation of tbe law
by his agent nnd had a narrow escape
from person n I dlsfiualificnllon. His
attention would therefore bo directed
to these matters aim he made a great
pretence to be conducting a fair election.
Yet the documents are urlnled _______
TngTfint nt one poll In Queens county
Mr. Fielding's -agents, nnpolnted by
himself, having his certificate person
ally signed, were both of them government officials. John O. Campbell
of Port Mouton, lighthouse keeper, who
according lo the auditor general's report is drawing a salary of $:P.I0 a year,
was one of these campaign representatives. The olher was J. L. Hain uf
Liverpool, who in 1905 received a salary und  expenses of  $1*71   as  fishery
A few years ago the government had
Inquisitors all over the country Investigating charges against postmasters,
some of them receiving not more than
$10 a year salary accused of attending
political conventions or silling on u
platform at a politic.*! meeting or expressing a partizan opinion at a* crossroads conversation. Now ministers
themselves to call out regular salaried
officials to do their campaign work in
direct opposition to their own pledges
and to a resolution of parliament which
they supported.
Dr.   Fagan,  Provincial   Health Officer,
Addresses a Public Meeting.
A sparsely attended public meeting
was held last evening in the court
house in the Interests of the Anti-Tuberculosis Boclety, Mayor Gillett being
In tbe chair. The poor attendance
may have been accounted for by the
fact of the strong rival attractions at
the opera house. Dr. Fagan addressed
the meeting at some length, explain
ing that there was a danger of consumption spreading in this city. There
were 12,000 deaths annually in Canada
and 200 in this province. Consumption
could be entirely prevented if the patients could be treated In a special
hospital. It was neither hereditary nor
contagious if proper precautions were
taken. Rut if a patient weht abroad
he was most likely spreading the contagion everywnere. substantial funds
had already been promised for a hospital and the doctor hoped that Nelson
would also contribute.
Dr. Arthur stated that there had
beeu two deaths from consumption
here and he knew of about 20 people
who were threatened with the same
A resolution was passed that the
city council, board of trade and city
churches at once make arrangements
to appoint a committee for the collection of funds for the proposed sanitarium. Mayor Oillett promised to call
a public meeting along these lines at
an early date.
Breaks All  Records In  Running Time
Between Coasts.
Quebec, Nov. 17.���The C. P. R. Overseas Limited, carrying the China mail,
arrived here this afternoon at 3:39
o'clock, having made the record trip
across the continent. The actual run-
nlnj time between Vancouver and
Qndb e, 3008 miles, was 79 hours and
59 minutes. The train left Vancouver
at 9:40 -Monday, having been delayed
S.hcu.s a-td 40 minutes owing to the
non-arrival of the Empress of China,
which had encountered rough weather,
aud then was further delayed six hours
in the mountains, but notwithstanding this heavy handicap Quebec was
reached 21 minutes ahead of schedule
There were several notable runs on
the different divisions. The run over
the four ranges of mountains were
made at the rate of over 28 miles an
hour, and across the 840 miles of
prairies between Calgary and Winnipeg at a rate of speed of 46% mile,
an hour. Between Winnipeg and Fort
William, when the running was impeded by the wreck of double tracking, 42
miles an hour was attained, and the
time from coast to const, was made at
rate of over 38 miles an hour. For
a long distance run or over 3000 miles
this Is something to the credit of the
Canadian  Pacific railway.
Tradition Friendship Remains.
Toklo, Nov. 17.���Viscount Hayashi,
Japanese minister of foreign affairs,
who was interviewed today by delegates from the progresslonal and progressive parties In reference to the
trouble with the school board of San
Francisco, explained that the views of
the American authorities at Washington and of the government of Japan
were in perfect accord on the subject. He trusted that a satisfactory
settlement would be made in time approving article 6 of the constitution of
the United States. He assured the delegates that there was no danger of any
controversy arising over the affair
which would injure the traditional
friendship of both countries.

and during the last few days particularly the volume of business has been
much greater. The main feature of

Parties professing to know predict a
further drop and then a rapid advance
to prices not yet reached at any previous time.
Denora Mines, too, was a feature of

Tics of StoUmcnt Alone Cannot
Bold Canada's Allegiance
to the Empire.
London, Nov. 17.���Today's theme ln
Canadian circles in London Is the first
of a series of articles which the London Standard publishes In leading type
on "The Americanization of Canada."
The article is by Mr. W. Richmond
Smith, a' well-known Canadian journalist, and lt describes what the Writer
calls sensational developments quietly
taking place in Canada which he says,
unless checked by a definite move on
the part of the British government,
may, within a comparatively few years
result in commercial reciprocity between Canada and the United States,
and the gradual absorption of Canada
by the American republic. The writer
declares that it Is obvious that ties of
sentiment only will not and cannot
hold Canada to her allegiance to the
empire. If the Dominion is to remain
part of the empire for any length of
time the people of Canada and the people of Great Britain must, without delay, get into closer relations with each
In the opinion of Mr. Richmond
Smith, the first step to be taken to
prevent the alienation of the Dominion
Is the establishment of a close and.
sympathetic interchange of news designed to make the two peoples better
acquainted, and the general condition
in the two oountrles better known.
The creation of a community of commercial and financial Interest between
Canada and the mother country sufficient to check the present influence
or tho United States would follow aa
a natural consequence.
The snme��*at alarmist tone of Mr.
Richmond Smith's article ln regard to
the state of affairs In Canada comes
as as surprise to most thinking people
In Great Britain, hut urgency generally aB to the British position in relation
to both Australia and Canada, Is being
more and more realized. Even If the
Canadian ministers were indisposed to
raise the question at the colonial conference In April, the question must
come up for discussion upon the British ministry's reservation for royal assent of Australia's preferential measure with its "restriction preference"
to British shipping.
Duncan Rots Sized Up by the Hedley
In the courBe of a caustic article
concerning the recent visit of Duncan Ross, M. P., to the Simiikameen
and Okanagan ridings, the Hedley Gazette remarks.
"He had captured the Penticton
Socialistic butterfly und left his hat
over it to keep It there until he
brought .1. A. Macdonald there to see
it. The leader came there recently
to inspect, but no expert testimony has
yet been given nut by him aB to the
value placed on it. Mr. Rosa is particularly anxious to down Price Ellison
in the Okanagan and he hopes the Socialistic candidate of Logie, of Penticton, will contribute to that end. Not
that he has any wish for Logic's success; but because he Is a recruit rrom
tho ranks or torylsm it will alford
pleasure tn sacrifice him. Mr. Ross is
broggliig as usual aboul whnt Is to
be done with all tho Conservative candidates, just as he was over three
years ago. when he had the Times saying that Price Ellison was a gone coon
in Okanagan, and W. J. Snodgrass was
going to annihilate L. W. Shatford in
Simiikameen. As a political prophet
Mr. Ross wasnt a success. He ranks
as Ihe madhi of British Columbia political grltlsm, and the only ranlfln
political prophecy that he can now attain to, no matter how much he may
rerorm, Is that of Cassandra."

The alarming Increase in crimes of
violence both against one's own person and the persons und lives of others is becoming a matter of serious
concern to those who have time to
view calmly the occurrences in society
which give these early years of the
twentieth century their character. The
daily press is becoming a chronicle of
crime to an extent previous!) unrecorded in history. Nor do the papers
print all ur nearly all the sanguinary
occurrences thai are repoi led ovt i
the wires. To do so would be -simply
tn make the n< _ spaper ;i vehli li for
tht publication of ihe most ghasl ly
Whole communities -suddenly become
the hotbed of suicide and num.- r and
these epidemics travel -Mill the ve-
lucity of typhoons over continents.
Life Is held so Cheaply that a tew dollars are made the incentive to deadly
deeds, while u serious embftrra
of one kind or another i.s regarded as
a sufficient excuse for self-execution.
The efforts of police and of the guardians of public safety are powerless In
the face of stealth and even open
crime is becoming so frequent that in
many communities one can never foresee the moment of attack.
It may not be easy to explain this
Midden and increasing carnival of
crime, but whatever may be the incidental occasion there can be no doubt
that it has Its base In the relaxing of
the moral apprehensions and principles
of the people. It is also a singular coincident   that   with    the    increase    in
. To defraud or rob is still a crime, according lo the code,    but   the   whole
genius of a certain class seems to be
, concentrated on the effort to evade or
escape justice.
There is some disposition on the
part of students of modern social
economy to plaoe the blame for the decline in morals and increase in crime
on the religious Institutions of the
country, whicli it is asserted are rapidly becoming moribund. We have uo
sympathy with either the allegation or
the conclusion, which we believe is
drawn from false premises. The
preaching of today is perhaps less fer-
vently evangelical than it was a cert*
tur;. or even half a century ago. There
is no doubt ihat a considerable departure from the puritanical doctrines
Of the last century has been efiected
aud that the stern aad rigorous thej-
ties oi penalty for Immorality are not
proclaimed with the same weight as
then. There has been evolved a more
rational Interpretation of the fundamental doctrine.-) of morality and religion, and We are not sure that . the
change is to be deplored.
But there has been more than a cor-
responding departure from the puritanical practises of the earlier days and
this ts certainly to be regretied. with
some the question Is whether the
change tn the manner of interpreting
tin   scriptures and   the  Influence  of
what   is   best  known   as  rationalistic
thi light   has   been   lbe   cause  of   tll>*   1<*
taxing of the moral Ideals ol the pGO-
pie. We do not think so, ior the reason that religious doctrines can only
be effective among intelligent people
When they have the sanction of reason and when the instinctive authority
of truth is felt to be behind them.
In one sense only can there be said
to be* an exception to this affirmation
and that is with respect to the doc
trine of immortality and of a future
pi natty for immoral acts. The doc-
. trine of immortality is not as clearly
j demonstrable as is a moral axiom, and
tht refore docs not now carry the same
weight as it did when people were
more swayed by superstition. This
may account to a large extent for the
increase in suicides. It may be that
no longer an* nun afflicted with the
same dread as that to which Hamlet
pa ve   expression, jiu. !_-b_- ''������"' "r'rtf���aa--
Bear the ills we hav,- than fly to those
We  know not of."
The troubles which drive to suicide
are real troubles and they are present
onee. Thoy are keenly felt, while the
possibilities of those that lie beyond
ait* to most minds only speculative.
They have never made the same appeals to tie* sensations and experiences of the suffering a-? those in this
hie. They are creatures of the [mag*
[nation rather than realtitos aud the
moral force incident to their existence
does not -appeal with the same effect.
It is not, therefore, to B revival of
the old notions of future punishment
that we must bave recourse, bul to ibe
development  of  wholesome and  sane
ideal-   of   life   Itself,   whether   here   or
ii : .i'ii p. And we believe thai the environment of individuals, the moral ni-
mosphere ot the community or nation
Is a more potent factor in the formation or deformation of moral ideals
than the merely doctrinaire influences
that are exerted.
The moral atmosphere of many communities Is d'-plorably unhealthy. It
Is laden with the germs of vice and
permeated with the microbes uf crime.
Only those who are innocent can hope-
to live in it and not become Infected,
The Strong and vigorous moral physique that has bounding moral lite.
alone can pass uncontaminated, and
even that by familiarity is apt to lose
its immunity.
The reason for this Is obvious and
the explanation points out the way
that must be trodden by society jf
there is to be a* return to the conditions of immunity from crime. The
law���that is, human law���has largely
ceased to be a deterring factor among
tempted or determined men for the
leasou that the strict intention of the
code has been lost sight of. While
the code exists as a guide toward
proper conduct aud an authority for
the conviction Of what has been decreed to be Immoral or illegal, the
code has long since ceased to be treated as such. It has been perverted till
its chief function now in the courts of
justice seems to be to furnish evidence of its elacticity and io prove
that it can be stretched till its terms
exclude conviction for an obvious offence. No sooner is a man indicted
for an alleged malfeasance or crime
than the genius of the bast aud most
talented minds is taxed to lind some
clause in the code under which Immunity trom proper penalty can b.
granted and the offender permitted to
escape irom. the natural and proper
consequences of his crime. This feature of modern judicial procedure has
become so striking that a criminal's
I list ihotight ou arrest is as to his
chances of evading punishment, and
his last on the enormity of his sin.
Even before, the crime is committed
he has often carefully figured out how
his ease can be made to look in court.
The power of money, not necessarily to corrupt the judiciary, but to engage the brightest minds to confuse
the evidence aud secure acquittal is
one of the evils of our limes. The
prevalence of this procedure lias
wrecked the moral distinctions which
are inherent iu every mind and which
have been more or less developed iu
all civilized society.
The reformation of society must
come not so much by a new style of
preaching or a new interpretation of
religion but a closer application of the
idea of justice in tne administration
of the laws of the land. We have
reached an age when human laws only .
have terror for the wicked and when
these are no longer feared the influence of essentially moral laws is
weakened. In tbe dark ages men had
the quickest consciences, and when
human laws. Iniquitous and bloody as
were their results, were the most
strictly enforced, was the time when
men the most feared to do any kind
of wrong.
Not more laws nor better laws are
what wc need, but the proper enforcement of those we have. It will then be
found that deeds of violence will speedily decrease and crimes againtl Life
be greatly  reduced.
whom he tried to deal would not deliver the spoils. VVe -shall continue to
force the morning paper i" pul Itself
right with the people.
A few weeks ago an experl orilm nee
officer of the American army Figured
out that the guns in the United States
coast fortifications would endure onl.
about two hem- stead) firing, and al
tin- . splration of that time would be
until for furthei use*. By the time thai
Invading ships got well within range
the gnna would have outlived or out
fired thetr usefulness, their aim become unreliable and their battery Ineffective. Tb. Importance of thi
cowry will explain the seriousness
with which its announcement was received.
There is a parallel case, carried to
an actual demonstration, In tbe suddenness with which the batten of
smooth-bore guns of the opposition organs in British Columbia have been silenced in the matter of better terms
No serious attack was made upon the
batteries, but simply from the reason
that the guns have played oul aft' r
a few Ineffective rounds there is no
longer any smoke arising from the
carefully built siege works of Lhe opposition. The besieging op-
were all right, but the guns were no
It is not from any shortage of ammunition that the f usi lade bas ceased.
These smooth-bore artillery pieo
would fire anything fnnn lawful ammunition, coarse p-sjbbles- Improvised
canister on down to baked clay, and
such ammunition never plays out. No,
it is the guns that have become useless. The heaviest charges went wide
of the mark and the bombs shot with
such insistent fury screamed their
way high over the heads of the intended victims, landing sizsllng in the waters of a broad and unruffled ocean.
The biggest gun gave out when the
leader of the opposition dlschai ged
himself of a first round. The charging had been carelessly and faultily
done, with con-sequences more damaging to those who stood near than to
those far away. When the rapid-fire-
ing small-calibre batteries saw the
self-wrecking single explosion of the
big howitzer the retreat was sounded,
the dead and wounded were counted,
and th<^ injured removed for treatment
to the political hospitals of bis
majesty's loyal opposition. Hence the
strange silence on the better terms
question. It is, therefore, no longer
necessary to carry a flag of truce and
cry, "Don't shoot!"

Richest  Baby  in the  World Celebrates
London, Nov. 16.���Edward George
Hugh Grosvenor is thc name of thu
rlchuBt baby In the world and today
was bis second birthday. He is tlte
heir of tbe second duke ol Westminster
and King Kdward is bis godfather. It
is safe to assert thai, compared with
this baby's prospective wealth, the fortune of Utile John Nicholas Brown,
'"the richest baby in America," is but
a bagatelle.
.His father's yearly Income is ll.bbU,*
000, which will double itself in 35
years ami be greatly increased by the
time he gets the fortune. He will have
Hire*. Splendid homes. Two are country estates that cover 80,000 acres,
and 000 acres more in London, His
home in I��ndon will be Grosvenor
house, as Ihis haa long been tho ancestral home. It ls one of the most
splendid houses in London and Is wonderfully spacious. The roomH are all
spacious, decorated handsomely and
embellished with rare objects of art
brought from many parts of the world.
This house has a great ballroom, where
the king, queen and greatest lords and
ladies of England are entertained frequently.
Just now this third duke of Westminster Is a healthy, happy baby, wiih
golden hair and bleu eyes, ell is perfectly unconscious of bis great chests
filled with enough fine clothes and
baby outfits to clothe half a dozen infants, and smiles quite as contentedly
when his English nurse forgets the
gold beads and baby pins set with diamonds and other precious stones.
The duke's little sister Is a few years
older than he, and is more capable of
appreciating the splendor she enjoys
Littln Lady Ursula Mary Olivia Ores
venor is a quaint little girl, and for
four years, until the stork brought to
her parents an heir and to her a bab>
brother, she ruled tbe bouse alone,
She is fond of him and does not feel
that tbe arriva-1 of a boy and heir dethroned her from the queenship that
was hers as fhe first baby,

"Manners nnd Modes for Men" is the
title bt the book published by the
Setnl-ready Company in Montreal.
Copii-s may be had free from the manager of Ibe Semi-ready Wardrobe here.
ln the hook, the president of the
Semi-ready Company, who is a recognized authority on men's dress, gives a
series of effective pictures showing the
distinctive character of dress for various pursuits and purposes. While it
Is Impossible to picture that touch of
warmth and brightness in the new
cloths, the Sftnf-ready styles cling
closely to the-subdued and unobtrusive
finer cloths whicli assure distinctive
elegance and forbid that luo bold effect
which is displeasing.
The forecast made some months ago
by the author of this book has turned
out correct in the tone, the shape and
the color most desired by gentlemen.
The new sack coat for the fall and
winter of 1906 will have neither centre
or sitie vents. This hns given place to
"the close waist and flowing hip and
the easy fitting sack. Both styles are
The newest winter overcoat is called
the French Chesterfield. It is a modification of the fashions first shown.

and beautifully furnished. It will he
reopened tomorrow when Pastor

The best house that has yet welcomed the Nelson-Bruce company attended their production of "The Merchant of Venice" last night. Harold
Nelson is always welcome In his
Shakesp-'-'rian roles, the more especially as the Koo.enay does not see a
Shakespearian play except once in a
great while. ' A good play will always
draw a good house in Xelson as elsewhere because it attracts alike all
classes whereas the romantic drama,
the problem play and the farce without
plot, spiced with vulgarity, rant and
niose. can only attract sections of the
public. Hence they can only succeed
in big cities for in small towns the
whole of the public must be attracted
if any money is to be made. This is the
reason of Harold- Xelson's success and
he has been more welcome on this oc
ci-sion on that account. Tonight will
be produced "Facing the Music." and
this afternoon "The Virginian" is being
played as a matinee as The Canadian
is going to press.

Early in the summer a "Windy
Arm" syndicate was gut up for the purpose of exploiting that district and a
representative was Bent from this city.
Nothing of moment was discovered in
Windy Arm but in the White Horse
range close by the railway a copper
mine has been discovered with a v.-in
over lUG feet wide, running in all values from $'-',2 to J7_ a ton, the gold
and silver contents being small. As
copper is at a premium just now the
Windy Arm syndicate seem likely to
make money. Several thousand dor
lars are in the treasury for tin* purpose of more fully proving the propertj
