Vancouver, Aug. 15.—Death by
drowning has put an end to the
nnhappy oareer of tbe rich but
eccentric Vogel, who thrice esoaped
from the asylum at New Westminister.
Twice he was taken back, but
the third time he put it beyond the
power of the keepers to get him
again within those sad walls
Last week he made his third attempt, whioh led to his death,
through it was sucessf ul. With the
keen mind of a quickwitted man,
Vogel know that search would be
hot after him, so he performed the
audacious trick of olimbing up the
penitentiary walls. Thnl .building
adjoins the asylum, and he hid in
the grounds, realizing full well that
nobody would look for him   there.
When the search had died down
somewhat he mads off into tbe
woods, and was evidently trying to
oroBB Pitt river when he met his
death.
Knowing tbat the bridge would
be watched, he probably tried to
swim or wade the stream, and,
failing, was drowned. Pleasure
seekers found the body of a costless man floating on the waters of
Pitt lake, whither it had drifted,
and the remains have been identified as those of the unfortunate
Rosslander who had muoh property but -little peace of mind.
How We Stand.
Although tbe shipments of the
Le Roi are not up to the record of
last week, when 6300 tons were
shipped, making the total for that
period the best in the camp so far,
yet the aggregate tonnage sent
away is over the average for the
year, with the likelihood of next
week being better.
The Iron Mask is shipping a oar-
load this week and the Spitzee intends to enter the shipping list permanently within a short time. The
Le Roi No. 2 concentrator is well
under way and will probably be
running by the end of next month.

HIGH GRADE   ORE.
"None but the brave deserve the
fair" aaye Dryden and none but
the courageous will ever make a
mining camp Bay's the West.   The
Miner yesterday morning after exploiting  a   wonderful    geological
theory whioh would do oredit to
tbe 'smartest' mining expert that
ever  visited  Rossland,  inoluding
those Gothamites who turned the
oamp down in its earlier days only
to rush in fatuously at a later date,
proceeded to hope that the values
of the rook would be found in narrower  compass  as the ore  went
down.  Tbis on the theory, evolved
out of a mazed inner consciousness,
that old Mother Earth, vomiting
her preoious minerals from below
did so in rhythmical sequence so
that tbe flow was ever the same in
value over a given space.   Consequently it declares that if the space
was  limited   in   area   the  value
would be higher, and if more extended—lower.   This is simple but
crude.   But if suoh were proven to
be the case, the empirical theory
would be bad for the oamp inasmuch aB the mines within it would
be quickly exhausted and tremendous sinking would have to be the
inevitable result.   As it is a pay
grade ore shoot of good width will
afford employment and pay good
dividends for a considerable length
of time before further development
and further expensive sinking became  necessary.   The  wider   the
vein the cheaper the working inasmuch as the development is lees,
and the sinking comes at longer
intervals.   Beyond a certain depth
hoisting Becomes so expensive as to
preclude working.   This means the
oamp conoerned is worked out.
Of course this style of booming
things is'tommy rot.' The faot is that
the oamp is a low grade camp, and
is destined as suoh to take rank
among the first in the world, possibly the very first. High grade ore
shoots are valuable where they
occur, probably from a secondary
deposition, in .the lower grade
bodies. They 'sweeten' the whole
and raise the gradeJof the ore to
that extent. If they are extracted
by themselves they lower the value
ol the mine, possibly to a point
where profitable extraction is no
longer practicable. This is called
'gophering.' What Rossland haB
to do is to accept conditions aB
they are. Rossland ia a perma
nent camp which will not be worked
out in many a long year,aye, many
a generation. The point'is not to
raise the value of the ore, but to
reduce the cost of winning it, and
it is along these lines tbat the best
engineers of the oamp are working.

CONSERVATIVE PLATFORM
PRESS SERVICE.
The passage by the Canadian
House of Commons, says the Vancouver World, of the resolution in
troduced by the Finance Minister
va. king available a subsidy of $60,-
000 in graduated payments extend
ing- over a period of live years,
marks the first graduated step toward the accomplishment of Borne
thing tbat has been dreamed of for
yeare by British colonial journalists
—an all British news services for
the British people at home or in
the several independent colonies of
the Empire.
No one who lives in Canada and
reads tbe papers needs to be told of
the weaknesses—the very danger
ous weakness when viewed from
the national standpoint—of the
present system of news purveying
The British colony of Canada depends for its knowledge of what iB
transpiring in the Motherland, in
politics as well as general news
upon the press agencies of the
neighboring republic. Naturally
those agencies, adopting their wares
to the majority ot the customers,
give every despatch sent out
strictly "Amerioan" tinge, and thus
insidiously, seemingly unconscious
ly, ahd yet moat effectively the
national sentiment is undermined
and Canadians are brought to view
Imperial affairs through the spec
tacles of the American citizens.
It is very gravely to be doubted
if any independent faotor makes bo
far toward the Americanization of
Canada as this one which the Dominion government wisely pro
poses now to lend its aid to  check
The Dominion cannot, however,
accomplish all tbat is to be done
ere common sense and patriotism
are satisfied. The natural and
complete development of the
scheme requires the heartiest cooperation of the Canadian newspapers with such agency as may
be formed to undertake the dissemination of British news in Canada.
And the newspapers in turn must
be supported in action by tbeir patrons.
To widen tbe field of action, the
Australian and South African colonies should follow Canada's example, and most necessarily of all, the
Imperial government must lend its
aid as well in what is pre-eminently a matter of grave Imperial
polioy. It is a large undertaking
of course to think of organizing a
single press association to serve all
the British colonies and the
Motherland, yet this is the only
rational completion of the project
broached by this Canadian subsidy.
The colonies would benefit by being brought into closer sympathy
and understanding, and this would
undeniably be brought about by a
more liberal interchange of newe.
It would require to be admirably
prepared so as first to interest and
then to instruct the people of one
colony in the conditions and affairs
of another, but could it be done.
The new cable should be made
an important link in tbe news service chain, for assuredly the Australian press would do better to get
their Canadian and United States
news from a Canadian agency here
or in Victoria than, as at present,
via the American route.
In the organization of the new
press association there should be
such system as will provide for the
collection and dissemination of a
strictly reliable and readable Dominion news budget for home use,
with an epitome for Old Country
readers and the Bister colonies. The
same plan worked out in the other
colonies would make the service
more generally popular and therefore self sustaining, while accomplishing the great object of  devel-

^Hoffman House
[Adopted at Revelstoke, September 13th, 1902,]
I. That this convention reaffirms the policy
of the party in matters of provincial roads and
trails; thc ownership and control of railways
and the development of thc agricultural resources of the province as laid down in the
platform adopted in October, 1899, which is as
follows;
"To actively aid in the construction of trails
throughout the undeveloped portions of the
province and the building of provincial trunk
roads of public necessity,
"To adopt the principles of government ownership of railways in so far as the circumstances of the province will admit, and the
adoption of the principle that no bonus should
bo granted to any railway company which
does not give thc government of the province
control of rates over linos bonused, together
with the option of purchase.
"To actively assist by state aid in tho development of the agricultural resources of the
provinco."
'm2. That in the meantime and until the railway policy above set forth can t i accomplished, a general railway act be passed giving
freedom to construct railways under certain
approved regulations, analogous lo the system
that has resulted in such extensive railway
construction in Ilie United States, with so
much advantage to t rude and commerce.
3. That to encourage the mil.ing industry,
thc taxation of metalliferous mines should be
on the basis of apercontage on the not profits,
4. That thc government ownership of tele
Shone systems should bo brought, nbout. as 8
rat step in tho acquisition of public utilities
5. That a portion of every coal area here
after to be disposed of should be reserved from
sale or lease, so I hat state owned mines may be
easily accessible, if their operation bocomes
necessary or advisable.
6. That in the pulp land leases provision
should be made for reforesting and that steps
should be taken for the general preservation of
forests by guarding against tho wasteful de
struction of timber.
7. That the legislature and government of
the province should persevere ln the effort to
secure the exclusion of Asiatic labor.
8. That the matter of better terms In the
way of subsidy and appropriations for the
province should be vigorously pressed upon the
Dominion govornment.
9. That the silver-lead industries of thc province bo fostered and encouraged by the Imposition of increnscd customs duties ou lead and
lead products importod into Canada, and that
tho Conservative members of the Dominion
House be urged to support any motion introduced for such a purpose,
10. That as industrial disputes almost invariably result in great loss ana injury both to the
parties directly concerned and to the public,
legislation should be passed to provide means
for an amicable adjustment of such disputes
between employers and employes.
II, That It is advisable to foster the manufacture of tho raw products of the province
within the province as far oh practicable by
means of taxation on thesaid raw products.sub-
joct to rebate of the same in whole or part
when manufactured in British Columbia.
Conservative Conventions
At a meeting of the oxecutlve of the Provin
cial Conservative Association, hold ut Van
couver, the province was divided into five divisions for organization purposes. The Koote-
nay-Boundary division is made up of tho following provincial election districts: Revelstoke, (olumbia, Kemie, Cranbrook, Ymir,
Kaslo, Hlocon, Grand Korku, Greenwood, the
City of Rossland and tho City of Nelson. At
the same meeting the following resolutions
wore adopted:
1. Thai, conventions for nominating candidates for inombei-H of the legislative assembly
bo made up of delegates chosen as follows:
lul In city electoral districts, une delegate
for every llfty nnd fraction of fifty votes polled
at tho provincial election hold In 1900. and if
tho citv is divided Into wards, tho proportion
of delegates for each ward shall ho based on
tho vote polled In each ward at thu last municipal election.
(b) in other electoral districts, one delegate
for every tifty or fraction of llfty votes polled
at the provincial election held in 1900, tho delegates to be apportioned to polling places, or as
near thereto as will bo fair to tho voters of tho
different neighborhoods.
2. Tho election of delegates shall be at public meetings, held at a designated central placo
in each nolling division, or in each ward in city
electoral districts, if tho city is divided into
wards. At such public meetings ouly those
who pledgo themselves to vote for the candidate or candidates selected at the nominating

CAMP HEDLEY is the most talked of oamp in the province, and situated in the centre is Similkameen City, surrounded by
rich mines whicb will shortly have large payrolls. Over 200 lots have been Bold to business people who realize that Similkameen will become the metropolis of this district. The Nickel Plate mineB have expended $300,000 in development and are at
present building tramways and a 40-stamp mill. Arrangements are being made for the erection of a large smelter at Similkameen City which will cost about a million dollars. Besides the Nickel Plate group of claims being developed by one of the richest
mining oompanies in North America, there are several other groups and properties which will shortly be developed, among them
being the Kingston Mines, Rollo, Wellington, Winnipeg, Red Chief and Pollock. Situated as it is in the beautiful Similkameen
valley, midway between Princeton and Keremeos, and protected from all opposition in the valley by adjoining a large Indian
reservation, this townsite will become one of the principal mining camps of the Paoifio Northwest. It was only a short time ago
that lots in Rossland, Nelson, Greenwood and other mining centres were selling for the same prioe that they are today being Bold
for in Similkameen.   Come in before the boom and double your money.

running steadily on the west addition, the only available timber for miles around. The main street is 90 feet wide, being ' all
cleared and ready for building purposes. All railways, roads, telegraph and telephone lines will have to come through this
townsite, whioh is located in tbe oentre of the whole Similkameen valley and will beoome the largest distributing point and

ANOTHER COMPETITOR
Japan Will Make Strong
Efforts to Improve
Marine.
Vancouver, Aug. 15.—While the
shippers of the Pacifio Coast have
been reaping the benefits of lower
freights because of the subsidy offered by the Frenoh government to
sailing vessels, and shipowners
have aired well-grounded objections
to this sort of opposition, it looks
as though there is something of the
same character to be feared from
Japan, whioh is reported to have
started the nucleus for a gigantio
fleet of merchant craft, to upbuild
the marine of that .oountry, and
there is every reason to believe a
subsidy bill will be passed at the
coming session of the government.
The shippers favor suoh a course.
The Japanese are oonvinced they
are the tail-ender upon the list in
the way of merohant marine. The
government has taken hold of the
move for improvement. The pres
ent idea is to construct ships of the
Amerioan type, but the British
method of manning crews is to be
followed. The men of the Japanese
marine will then be naval reserves
and will be available in Japan's in-
crcaed navy in tbe event of hostilities. As to a subsidy measure, it
is said to have been practically decided upon..

Victoria, Aug. 15. — Steamer
Kaga Maru, of the Nippon Yusen
Kaisha, arrived in port from the
Orient yesterday afternoon, with a
light oargo and small passenger
list. She brought no freeh news of
tbe war sitnation in the Far East,
things having been pretty much
the same when she left as at last
advices. It is well understood that
Russian troops are being steadily
poured into Manchuria, notwithstanding the denials of the Russian
officials and newspapers. Thousands of soldiers are daily coming
in over the trans-Siberian railway,
and being despatched from the
terminus of that line to various
posts throughout Manchuria. Enormous quantities of supplies of all
kinds, inoluding thousands of
horses, are also arriving and being
handled with considerable despatch.
Over and above this activity on
land is to be noted the steady increase of the Russian naval squadron in the gulf of Peobili. Eighteen
months ago that squadron was
almost insignificant in numbers
and vessels of strength. Today it
iB one of the most formidable in the
whole Pacifio, although it has not
yet reaohed the point of equality
with that of Japan, whioh still
hoi ds the first place in Far Eastern
waters with a thoroughly modern
and splendidly equipped fleet, outnumbering any one of the foreign
squadrons,
The intense feeling in Japan regarding Russia's movements in
Korea haB somewhat abated, 'ir 1
the demand for war is not so
strong. Nevertheless Japan is improving upon the hints supplied
recently' and is strengthening her
position on land and sea at every
opportunity. Meanwhile, Russia
is keeping very busy, and almost
every month some new faot oomes
out to prove that she is intent upon a far southern boundary to her
Asiatio empire.
The American passengers said
that so far as they oould learn.
Russia's aim was nothing short of
an early occupation of Bome part of
the valley of the YangtBe Kiang.
Already Russian commercial
agents, Russian banks and other
financial and mercantile eetabish-
ments were doing business on quite
a large scale in that territory.
Recent arrivals from Port Arthur
who reached Kobe just before the
Kaga Maru sailed, state that great
activity was to be noted in and
around the fortifications. The increase in the strength of the garrison has been remarkable, while the
extension of the strong works
originally built leaves no doubt on
the mind of the observer that Port
Arthur is to be made a place of impregnable strength, if it is not that
already.

(one and three, two and four  of
each verse) and the  sentiment  is
very much the reverse:
Happy a man may pass his life
If he's directed by a wife;
If free from matrimonial chains
He's sure to suffer for his pains.
No tongue is able to unfold
The virtues in woman you behold;
The falsehoods that in woman dwell
Are almost imperceptible.
In woman's heart you'll see appear
Truth, darling of a heart sincere;
Hypooriey, deceit and pride,
In woman never can abide.
Destruction take the men, I say,
Who no regard to woman pay;
Who make the   women their delight
Keep always reason in their sight.

Did YOU
Notice It?
Last year when siphons weren't so cheep
All bought them with their price;
But now that they have been reduced
They think it awfully nice.
Last year they were three fifty,
But now they're only two;
And I am sure if you're in style
That they will just su't you.
At Goodeve's buy some Sparklets,
Even then price is much less;
And then you'll have your soda
Without a bit of mess.
So buy one ard be ready,
And when a friend drops in
He'll sofy say "my, that is gojkl,
Where did you get it Jim?"
