Recent   disclosures   of  low  moral
.standards, cheap deceits and callous in-
difference to the rights of others on the
part of men of linancial and business
prominence havo sorely hurt those who
long forVdecent world to live in; for
an unclean world is as intolerable to
morally sensitive people as is an unclean bouse to physically sensitive peo-.
pie.- No American who loves his country and remembers Emerson's definition
of its mission, to breed superior men
and women can fail to hang his head in
shame oyer the continuous revelation
of lack of principle and  cheapness of
character in mon who have been greatly trusted and have proved grossly untrustworthy.   The shame of the United
States senate, with several  members
who havo been under indictment or
known to be unscrupulous corruption*
ists;   of department  oiliccrs  of high
station Belling information as if it were
produce; of,men   intrusted with vast
funds for purposes which ought'to make
their custody a sacred charge, greedily
using the money of othor people for
their own benefit—those thingE are ominous- aud mciiaciii** in the last degree
Americans-are uot moro dishonest
than other men; but they sin against 'a
a greater..li-jlit, for in this country all
enterprises of a,,public character ar«,
supposed to bo carried on for tho public
benefit.   Our-politicians    aro  • never
weary of talking   about tha "saciod
rights of the people," although there is
uo country in which those righis are
nioro flagrantly viotatod. . Our offenses
aro'rauk and stnell to   heaven, becauso
wo protest so much; our infidelities are
the moro damuable because wo profess
such a lofty faith.   The'time has come
for frankness with ourselves and the
world; if wo cannot be decent, lot us at
least be truthful.   Lot   us purge ourselves of dishonesty and hypocrisy aad
bo what, we pretend ■ to' bo; or let u
preach squarely the doctrine of greed
and success without scruples and keep
on doing what we are now doing.   Let
United   States   senators stop talking
about national ideals, or let them cease
to disgrace the country by corrupting
legislatures,'dividing profits with land
syndicates and accepting from corporations  salaries  which   they ' havo not
earned; it is time fori them "to'mako
their choice; the country is in no mood
to stand further hypocrisy.   It demands
.t hatwtli e.tliie.ves.t aku.th ei r-hands-off-t Ifc-
sacred thiugs, of the nation; let them
ply their trade' if they  must, but let
them forbear .to "touch-with-polluted
speoch tlie ideals, the aspirations, and
tho hopes'of the nqtjo.^hcyjmve done,
their.bBSt to-'Iostroy"these' tilings".' - '
.. - Ahd:it is high Kino fdrth'e ofllcers of
some: of. tho insurance . companies 'to
cease talking about tlio duty of provid-,,
ing for one's family, the solemn obligation of a man to think, of the welfare of
his children after he is gone, the beauty
of present self denial for tho snks of
tho dear ooca'dependent on one's exertions.   IKI10 gentlemen whose dealings
with tho vast funds committed to their
case liave recently como to liirht have
any sense of humor, they will put an
ond tb the sham philanthropy which
thoy havo .preached for, business pur*
fiosos, and make their appeals for patronage with manly frankness.   If thoy
cannot bo honest, lot them at least drop
theiniiek of honor and deal squarely
with tho public.   Lot them make an
end to all tho sentimental   nonsense
about wldowH and orphans, and say
bluntly:   "VYo want your money; pay
uo the largest possible,premiums and
wo will givo you tho smallest possible
returns.   Wo''will accept your monoy
ae a trust and administer it for oour

That fifty-three of tho property owners

When the members of the house are

secn develops meanwhile to upset his
present plans, the eccentric and iconoclastic member for Nelson will befound
in his place, ever to be reckoned a
doubtful quantity, to discuss the interests and greatness'of the Kootenays or

It was mentioned that speculation is

A-helher he intended to resign his par-

Knowing John Houston to be ;i
champion and admirer of biunl directness, he was asked. "Do you intend to
lesign your scat in the local legislature
or will ynu come back for'the sessions
of the bouse until the seat is vacated in
thc natural course? ' I should like to
use a direct answer." ll was less than
a week ago.that this letter wus written
and today the answer came' over the
Western Union wires,"via'Tonopah:
I do not intend to resign. You can

The context is indiciile that Mr.

of lapsed policies during- last year.
Canadian companies have just twice
the total volume ol" insurance in for.e
possessed by American companies in
Canada, yet their lapsed policies during
the year amounted to scarcely one-third
more than that of the Americans.
That is, on the same volume'of total
business and almost the same volume
of new business, the American companies, had half as much again of
lapsed insurance. This high pressure
business, this dragging of men into 'ife
insurance, whether thev want it or not,,
is perhaps the most distasteful fealuie
of tbe wholo insurance situation. In
regular companies alone, not including
tlie assessment companies and fraternities, which would make , a very much
worse showing of lapses, there ' was'
$35,500,000 of insurance permitted to
lapse, in Canada last year. On the
absurd low estimate ot only' $20 per
$1,000 have been paid on this by thc
lapsing insurer, ive have $710,000 paid
in a singlo year ' by people who will
never derive any benefit therefrom. A
little of this inures to the benelif of the
persevering, policyholder;1 but the uv-
oriigc of premiums and commissions
thereon now prevailing would suggest
that easily more than $500,000 of what
is paidQm these lapsed pvdicics' goes
into thc pockets of the agent.    -

Importance Of The Zinc Industry to Tlio Crows jSie-j-fc Push.
0 We glean from the New York En-
gineerinii und Minim? Journal, ot
Out 21st, tlie following .facts from ji
very interubting article on the supply
and price ot zinc ore.
The a venire prie*3 of ordinary
ppclter nt New York for the ten vuiirs
from 1890 to 15XX) w«b -1 305 cents per
pound. The lowest price during this
period was 3.522 cents in 1891 and
tiie maximum 5 75 cents in 1899.
In 1UJ1 iheavora^e price was 5,07
(ieiitH und the uulie:uionB are that it
will he 5.75 tor 1905.
Tlie incrouseel demand for raw ma-,
-teri'il has been filled entirely by Cui*
jomdo and othor western states. Tlu-
extra pre<1 action from these western
ptatcs, so far, has only been enough
to meet the increased demand for
spelter; but just now, there seems to
be a shortage*, in the supply of ore.
The writer thinks, lioweve**, that
this shortage is ol a temp* rary nature,'
ns there are lar^o quantities ot oiu-
in thc west- whic*i have a poreeuiagi
of zinc which will he made use (•
now that there j*j ft demand for it
The providing of proper milling- facilities being the one necessity tj b.
The  average  slag   produced b\
cent ot zinc and 5 to 10 per cent lead
with small values of gold and silver.
The cost of mining and milling at
Joplin is §1.10 per ton eiada ore,
while at Leadville it is troua $2 50 to
S3 per'ton:
The. Joplin ore is said" to be of a
superior quality to that of the west,
but the'increased cost ot producing it
has had k great deal to do with the
inerciise  in price..    ,
The Canada Metal Company has
ta-keq time bv the .forelock and
will Boon be in a positi>n to treat the
zinc bearing ores of the Kootenay ore
fields. Thc fine large plant at Frank,
when completed, will be the'largest
zinc treating plant in the west and
will be the greatest factor in reiving
the galena mining industry of Eastern British Columbia.
It is to be rcgreted that this large
enterprise was not secured for Fernie.
But what is our loss locally is Frank's
gain and the benefit to the whole
country will include some benefit to
our city. '
Mr. Fernau, the Manager pf this
enterprise, has recently returcd Irom
Nelson and Pilot Bay, where he has
been looking after the taking over
and starting of the snielter ^t that
point, which liis company has ae
quired for the purpose ot reducing
crude ores for tiie Frank smelter
Mr Fernau will be pleased to assay
and report on samples of ore from
prospectors or companies engaged in
developing mining properties. The
Company has already received a car
of ore from the Gray Copper mine at
Sandon and other shipments will be
arriving as soon as the ore bins are
ready to receive them.

western silver lead smelters contain
jibout G per cent zinc oxide, or abou'
,5 per cent tuetalic zinc. According
to thcBe figures there is about 90,000
jtons of zinc being thrown away each
„, year by the smelters, besides a large
•quantity in copper matte smelting.
It is not prob.ible that much of this
plug waste will be utilized, but it is
,nn indication of the prevalence ot
zinc in the western silver lead ores,
In thc Joplin district, whero tho
great bulk.of the zinc of commerce
is now produced, nro containing 4 per
cent of nino and 15 percent oilead
is mined and milled, it being necessary to work' from'20 to 25 tons of
crude ore to obtain one ton of concentrate suitable lor smeltintr; while in
Coluradn, Utah, New Mexico nud
other western districts, many mines
produce ore tunning from 15 to 40 per

„-Uolden Star
of the'most important of our law courts
at a higher salary than he received as
a cabinet minister. The feeling is evident that an anomaly exists in the idea
that the judicial bench is > a proper
refuge for men supposed to be incapacitated by ill health from other work,
This for two reasons. One, that if our
judges are to be invalids, unable to do
a fair day's work, the country is bled to
provide an unnecessary number of
judges. The other, that if our judges
can not do a fail day's work, they do
not deserve a full day's pay., Canada
for years has heard a continual cry that
the judges were not paid properly.
The Journal believed that and shared
in the cry, which recently culminated
in Increase of judicial salaries. But
the cry was based on the supposition
tliat the bench has hard work to do,
work which deserves ample compensation. If men whose health has broken down in other occupations are to be
considered fit occupan's ofthe bench in
our important courts, then it is evident
that the bench is a very easy job, and
that it is humbug to claim that as good
pay is called for ?»s the name quality of
brains would deserve in some occupation in which the brains are cilled
upon to do a good day's work three
hundred days in the year."
It seems to us that partiznnsh.p aside
there is subject ior much consideration
}n this comnienl of this opposition paper. There is no use denying that there
arc grounds for criticisiri along these
lines and it will be difficult to meet
this reasoning of the opposition press.

Victoria, 11. C.,Nov. 1.—The grip
of the gold seeker's fever, which every
mnn who lias lived for .-my time, the
life of a prospector or niiner knows, in
some degree, was , curiously . demonstrated here upon the arrival'of the la^t
* Skagway steamer of the C. P. R.   She
, brought among her passengers, Donald
MeGilliyray-and Harry Johnstone, both
originally.from Yarmouth, N..S., who
went iii with the rush of '971 to the
Klondike,:huve stayed ihere'ever sihas
andtjiow nre rated wealthy men of Gold
bottom'and on<i or, .two other creeks.
They, had. been planning for three years
past to come "Outside" after the autumn
• work of 11305, and spend Chrislmas, at
the   old   home   with   their   relatives.
Their business'affairs in the north were
.duly arranged, and they started for cW-
. tlization and   childhood's   scenes   four
- weeks ago. By the time they reached
SIcagH-uy they had developed a genuine
homesickness for the rugged, hills and
bleak sweeps of (he north; (heir hands
itched for the feel of the pick and shovel handle; and they had half a mind to
turn back;.- No doubt they would, but
each was ashamed to communicate the
thought lo, the other. On the trip down
from Skagway they got talking of what
■"(he hoys" were doing far away in thc
Northland,- of what work would be accomplished during the winter, and ol
what might happen piejudicial to their
interest it" their substitutes ' on the
'ground should lapse into indifference.
Result: When Victoria was reached
they hiid come to the conidusion that
they did not care  particularly   for  the
■joys of a Nova Scotia Christmas, and
they did yearn for the open ;iir life and
bard work of the- rugged Nonh'and.
And so about their lirst investment was
a return ticket, and llie next, steamer
Sidling for Skagway carried them back
again. ' They expect to go  into   Daw-
' son over thc ice
Lawrence Sinclair, A. K. Jewitt and
■ George Greenhow, three-other Yukon
era who have been staying ■ at the Dominion for some days past, say 'lhat
they too know just the feeling of "the
call ofthe north" to whicli McGillivray
iind Johnstone responded. This is
their first visit to the Outside in eight
years, and already  they are becoming
. restless and-anxious to be back at the
mines;.. They- had the-same feeling,
t>o they say, when they boarded the
s1 earner ai -Skagway. They, resisted
the fascination lo get back to the toil ol"
gold-digging, but if it had not been for
Ii t
tlie-Tact'thatiall three had notified their
relatives lo expect them,, they probab-
Iv would have turned back.
"Half the Yukoners who start out to
-'give the'bld folks at home a visit, think
bet icr'of it before they ure .veil started,
and'hike back to the mines," said- one
of the party, Mr. Sinclair.    "The gold
fever is'" something   mortal  queer, "he
added.    ' "Once you've got a real  uood
(ouch of it you can't shake   it   off.     1
. suppose everyone has a lasle of it once
. in a while hut the majority get over it
till right.    But when ' it   gets   such "11
hold of you tlmt you are willing to   go
hundreds and hundreds of miles mvny
from home and friends and   the   comforts of life, to (lie hardships of lho fro-
■ u, -     ' "4
jwn north, and then learn to think il is
the very finest country on the face of
the earth—why then you've got the
genuine article. That's the kind of a
case I got, and I guess Jowilt and
Greenhow has about the same brand."
The three partners separate when
lliey reach San Francisco, Sinclair to
visit his former home in Colorado, Jewitt lo go to New Zealand, and Green-
how to Australia. One or all will re
turn to lhc liorlh in.March to topic after'their combined interests on French
■ Hill, whicli, aggregate many thousands
for they have done well. Mr. Sinclair
says tlmt the Klondykc has still filly

, Victoria, B. C, Nov. 1st,—K. W.
Douglas, represeiitiug ' the Boston
Sningle Co., aud the Blanchard Shln-
i«le Co ,-hotli of Boston, has offered to
buy.400 carloads of B. C.'shingles tit
a certain price, for the New England
market! He sua s the price- offered
allows a fair jnai-»in of pi-ofit to the
manufacturers. This lot of ,100 carloads means about 80.000,003 shingles. The ofler of the Estonian will
be accepted and. the provincial mills
will be kept busy for some time filling it.
Victoria, B. C, Nov. 1st.—Apropos
of the Kedfern jewel robbery case,
much discussion has been excited
over the action of chief of police Lang-
ley in . accepting the proposal of
Christopher Kurtz, under detention
as a principal in the affair, t'odisclose
the hiding place ofthe missing gems
on conditiou that no prosecutions
should be taken. The pact was kept
by, the. Victoria ' chief—the , jewels
were recovered,'and .Kuit2 was afterwards ai-f.-sted on the charge of
beiug Vancouver's lone burglar and
highwayman, wanted also for shooting at one and wounding another protesting householder. The investiga--
tions of the police show that he has
been leading a typical double life—
a Y. M. C. A. youth by day and: a
"sport" by night. After planning and
carrying through the, robbery ol
Mr. Kedfern. liis uncle, and securing
thc latter's forgiveness, he has demonstrated his nerve by wiring since
he has been under arrest at Vancouver to Mr. Kedfern: "Send' $100. by
telegraph immediately for preliminary defence." It hasn't gone forward
yet and ho will have to look elsewhere for his defence fund." But the
question that is-puzzling the public
as a sequel to the whole affair is:
can the police justify their course-in
com promising with-a known thief,
letting him go unwhipped of justice
011 the'condition that he restore his
plunder, seeing that he is caught?
It looks uncommonly like, compound-

From the Herald
...The Tritt-s-Woc-d   Co.,  of Fernie,
has practically completed their new
brick and stone store in the principal
6tivfct in the c»il town.v   By  all ac
cunts it mast be a very imposing
structure, occupying halt a block of
ir-'*:wsre along the main street.   Our
informant says that no where in the
wo' has he seen anything approaching the business   buildings  now   in
cmirse of  construction   in    Fernie.
'' his Trites- A'ood Co., building would
do credit to Winnipeg the progressive
itself     " ' ,,   *
The Crow's Nest Trading Co., a.
Fernie, has moved into their new
j r«-iiiises, 4vhich ar--} very nearly as
i-xtoiis-jve as those last rcferr.ed to.
]i line feathers make fine birds, and
line buildings make Hub towns, in
ihe true senso, then Fernie is certainly lifting her head to somo purpose.
li Is no new story to those familiar
wiih ihe conditions under whicli a
Hrent deal of tho staking of the  coal
urd oil lands in the South East Koot
cnay country   was  conducted,   that
liiij*;itioii is  about to  arlsu  to the
mutter.   That it was bound to arise
was inevitable, but noone anticipated
Midi   a  crop as is' promised.   This
will have thc effect of tying   up development for a very long period,
itnd the uncertainty of titles will pre-
ve.it capital from coming inta what is
ji wonderful rich c.i-.mtry.   It looks
as if everyone staked on top of every
b.xly else, with a fervent hope that
.the follow who hud priority hud not
us. long a purse as  the  last   locator.
The following telegram received by
the   Spokesman-Keview   from   Vancouver shows that a'regular game of
beggar niy-neighboris expected, and
that the stakes will go to the owner*
of the longest purse: . .
"Vancouver, B. C.,—A special from
Fernie, B. C, says: The Ledger remarks in to-d«iy's issue that the ball
ol litigation over conflicting and overlapping claims in the Flathead mining district has been set rolling. The
parlies to the contest are two "well
known syndicates, one of which is
•rom .Spokane and the other a provincial concern. The details of what
promises to be a most interesting
ilght are not given, but it is said
thoy will bring into issue many ofthe
heated questions which have ariseD
„ki-..iio2:Hrd to the wliolcsi(le_ancl_indis-
land grant surveys so as to include
much ofthe coal and oil land already
clnitmd under a varietv of licenses.
The claims of the railway company
will have to be adjudicated, and possibly a qncs*.ion of ultra vire8 affecting the right of the B. C, government U> issue the licenses.
Oil gushers have not been found in
South East Kootenay, but it looks as
if the land would spout legal fees like
:i geyser before long.
. If we have zinc in East Ko-tenay
it would appear that we shall, soon
have both a market for it on tvie spot
and a smetler. to treat it near at hand,
it is somewhat Btrange in a section
where galena oresara so remarkably
abundant that zinc is nol much more
in evidence.   It may be that,  as in
other places,  when prospectors ran
across too strong evidences ot what
lliey used to call the accursed black
jack   they  simply  abandoned   the
ground, and all knowledge of tho existence of the mineral iiecamo lost;
Tlu*.Herald knows of one property
within six miles of Cranbrook which
might bo very profitably exploited
for its zinc. * The property belongs lo
Mr. "William Hamilton and is situated
on Fa liner's Bar, only a  couple  ol
miles bevond King's mills on Smith
lake.   It is stated on lirst rate authority, tbat there aro four feet of clear
zinc ore   in   the bottom ot the shaft;
33ine'*j5 000 have been spent on tho
claims trying, one would thiuk. to
convert a zinc property into a silver
mine.   There must be other, cases of
a like nature scattered all through
the hills to the south of the town, and
tho Herald will be r lad to hear of any
discoveries or rediscoveries ot zigc-
bearing ground.
W. F. Grant, formerly of the Kootenay Power & Light Co., at Nelson,
has installed the electric light plant
at Frank. That town is now illuminated with the white light throughout. The arc lights are going in on
the corners, and night has grown in
to day. This is an improvement
which'atonce catches tho eye of the
traveler passing by. It was from a
traveller we got it. Commenting on
the fact he said that, we all wanted
more, light out here. c II the world
could only ,see the country in the
proper light out here, he said, all
were well. Light is what we want.
Tiie benefits of the Frank installiition

No other tribute to a man's character
expresses lhe wealth of meaning contained in the simple statement  that  he
is :i man.    As a man he may serve llie
world in a score of noble ways; but the
world cares more for the man than  for
his profession or his service.   The moment n man's particular form  of service becomes more evident lo the world
than las manhood, that moment he has
lost something of man's highest place.
The surgeon who is merely a masterly
culling machine has not lhe hold  on
the world lhat the surgeon has whose
, manhood and heart show strong alongside nnd above his marvelous professional skill.   A vigorous, manly young
niiiii-iter asked a business acquaintance.,
"Would you rather see me dressed to
look like a minister,   or like n man?
There was only ono answer,   The man
who asked that question  can  minister
in his chosen and highest form of service the more eifociively because "man"
is written on his face and dress nnd
life.    After Woodrow Wilson's election
to the presidency of Princeton Univer&i-
ty, when men were trying lo formulate
lhe  reason*.-   for   tho   peculiarly high
place that he hold in their esteem  nnd
