C. f4*   -^-ffSO-V SECRETARY,
Lying Idle Gives Golden a Black Eye���If
Operated on a Small Scale at First would
be of Immense Benefit to the District.
Editor Era:
Juat few wordi in reference to the
imelter question, as Riven in your last
issue. If the townsite wan given to
the smelter company upon condition
that t.iey construct and operate the
smelter, then, I say, it is time eome
weight was brought to bear upon our
representative at Ottawa to have this
matter brought to the conditions upon
which the deed to this Iand was ob-
dtioted, only gives Oolden nnd the
whole district a black eye, as investors say- "Why, you have not ore
enough here to operate your own
imelter, so I will go some plaoe else to
look for mining property." Tbere is
no reason why Golden cannot be made
a busy point, but the people must pull
together aud advertise their country
and get in new life, There^s no dis-
tained.    It seems very strange if thej jtrict that can ahow any  better pros-
are obliged to operato the smelter and
do not that they can give deeds their
lot*, as by doing so they lay themselves open for damages.
If the smelter was only operated on
a small scale this spring 10 miners
oould get nut a few tons of ore and
ship here and get quick returni lt
would make Oolden one of the best
towns in the west, as miners could
then go baok and get more ore and continue, nnd I am positive tbat very
shortly the smeller would pay. It
would also advance the townsite and
show the public that Oolden is a
pushing town and not one that needs
Tbis sin.-lter,  as it has been  con-
pects than this, but interest seems to
be lost in the country, We can read
every day about the hustling that
Revelstoke business men do, and they
are making it win. Revelstoke was in
the same boat as Oolden over tho
smelter question, but the good Columbia river came to tbeir rescue and made
the smelter company tear its building
down or the river would bave taken it
to Robson. Since lhat time Revel
atoke haa kept to the front, and if our
local smelter was only operated on a
small scale at the start we would soon
have an industry here that would be a
credit to the town und do justice to its
people. FREE MINER.

of Messrs. Mackenzie k Mann, the
builders of the Canadian Northern
Railwny, will leave tor Britieh Coluin
bia to-night, accompanied by Mr. J. N.
Greenshieids, K. C, the firm's counsel.
It is understood here that Mr. Mann is
on a mission lo confer with the Gov
eminent of British Columbia with re
Kurd to a subsidy for the extension of
their road through to the Pacific coast.
That the idea of Messrs. Mackenzie k
Mann to put another transcontinental
road across Canada will be carried into
effect is accejued as a fact by the leading financial men in Montreal who are
in close touch with English capitalists. These men think the indications
are that there will be a big development iu the northern section of British Columbia.

London, Jan. 21���Mr. Chamberlain-,
in the conree of a speech in the Coin-
inons, yesterday, on th* war, laid that
thi assumption oi Lord Itoeebery, in A
���peach at Chetterfield, that tha Boor*
could at any time have the terms tbat
Kitchener formerly offered to them wat
a mistake.   The Boers hnd flatly refused those termi and since then thd
British bad lost heavily In live* and

would be bad diplomacy and wouli

represented the  spirit  In which thd
Government would approach the con-
olusion o*f peace, their detalla mutt bs)
modified.   Tht Government   wat nol
animated by vindictiveness and wai not
deaf to reaaonable overturei,  coming
from responsible Boers, but it wae mtt
prepared to take any ac'tidd resembling
weakness, doubt or vacillation.  Therefore, ihe proclamation of August wools*
not bs withdrawn.   There would, however, be a very large amaeaty, aa larg*
as could be conferred wkk justice) td
the loyalists, thost who mrrendered td
Great Britain.   There weald be no extermination of the pbdple, but the baa-
iahment of leaders wbo dt- not lur"*
render could not  be  revoked.    Tht)
Sal tlement would be less hard than that
imposed by  the Northern States ot
America   oh   the   Sout-*rn   Statea;
There would be no general con-Jtoation;
He did ndt fear that irremovable bitterness would remain in South Africa.
The war in Amit-ica had rtsalted id
complete reunion.   Mr.   Chamberlain
instanced   the   indication*   tbat   th*
Boers wsr* already inclining toward*
settlement.   Two thousand burgher*!
ho said, were fighting on the British
side, and tbe prisoners at Berm��daha4
petitioned for permission to take the)
oath.   More than 200 Were Willing to
take the oath of allegiance immediately
and all others were willing to take thd
dath Of neutrality.   Number* ot prisoners at Coy lon had naked to  be take*

Mr. Jos. Martin, who was by some
thought to have heen put out of business, politically, nt the last fsrovincial
election, ha. been a verv live "corpse"
since that time, and liis lnt.Bt move

Mr. Jos. Miii'tiu feels that he is the
one that should he chosen. The Vic*

tliat unless such a meeting were oalled
before tlte.2lat he would offer himself
as a candidate in the approaching bye-
election for the Dominion House in
that city. Tl.e fi.st decision reached
by the executive of the Victoria Asso
cilttion wna to ignore this demand, but
according to inter advices Ihey have
decided to send delegates and so avoid
a three cornered contest, This would
go to show that at all events Mr. Martin should not have the leadership ol
llie Liberals of B. C. when l.e ie willing to jeopardise their chances in a
Dominion election. It also woutll go
to show lhat the Martin faction, for so
we must term it, has a much greater
strength than was thought possible.
The truth is ihat Mr. Martin is h poll
lioiiin of much greater ability than any
ol his present opponents, and it he
were able ut times to sink liis own
personal views, ..ud accept those of his
friends, he would make a most valuable leader. But his record shows tbat
while be i�� nu indomitable lighter, it
is alwaya lor his own views that he

���.dentine Iteaaona In Support or the Theory
That It Is.
One of tbe most Interesting subjects discussed by Professor George Darwin during his recent visit to this country waa
tbat ot the possible and probable lnorease
In the length ol the day.
When onoe the earth Is In motion about
an axis, no matter how tho motion came
about, It would continue forever, and at
the same rate, thus making the day always
of tbe same length unless something Is
happening or will happen to Inter**oro with
that motion. Now, there an several causes
In operation which affect the period of the
earth's rotation, some of which tend to
make the period less ond othert to make It
greater. Fortunately the Influence of each
of tho causes It very tmall. They are generally easy to understand, and a tluiplc
experiment will Illustrate one of them.
Tie n stone to one end of a string, and,
holding the other In the band, whirl U
around aa nearly as may be In the clrcum-
ferenco of a circle. When ite speod is nearly uniform, allow the string to wind up
on the linger. It will be noticed that as
the string shortens the angular velocity
Increases. In tbo same way, If the matter
forming tho earth should In any way be
drawn nearer the axis of rotation, It would
turn faster, and the day would be shortened.
By continual loss of hoot a shrinkage of
the earth Is probably In progress, and, although the process is exceedingly slow, It
certainly tends to diminish tho period of
rotation. On the other hand, any addition
of matter from the outside will tend to increase tbat period and make tbo day longer. Undoubtedly slight additions to the
mass of the earth are -constantly mnde by
the arrest of moteorlo bodies passing
through tho atmosphere. Their influence
is opposed to and tends to neutralize that
ot any earth shrinkage that may be going
The most important Interference with
the rotation of the earth that wo know of
is that of tbe tidal wave, whlcb Is duo to
tbo attraction of tbo sun and moon, but
more largely to tho latter. It la easy to
see that this Is a resistance against which
tbe earth turns, and its effect is to Increase
tbe length of the day.
Astronomical observations extending
over about 8,000 years have failed to show
anysensllilochango In the day, but tbe influence of the tides must becomo evident
after tho lapse of a grea't mnny years. Professor Darwin declares that tbe day may
lengthen until It Is at last 66 times as Jong
as It Is at present, and that would be also
tho period of tbe revolution of tbe moon
about the earth.
A day of 1,820 hours, such hours as we
now hiivis, would offer many Interesting
advantages, but there would bo some
things ubuufc it not altogether agroeablo.
As it is not likely to como for sojuo millions of years It is not a matter far immediate anxiety.���-Youth's Companion.

The members of Mountain Lodge No.
11, A. F. k A. M,, held their first ball
on Friday evening last, wben the large
hall ol Ihe Columbia was packed with
Masons and their friends.
This being the first ball since the
removal ot the lodgo from Donald, it
brought many ol the old members Irom
distant parts, thus sSording them the
opportunity of renewing old acquaintanceships and becoming acquainted
with the new members enrolled since
the removal of the lodge to Oolden.
Here and there throughout the ball
could be seen little groups of old*ti men
recalling happy memories of the events
of a score of years past, The members
of the lodge bad invited the D.D.O.M.,
R. W. Bro. C. 8. Stevens, of Kamloops, to be rrcse.it, and the latter had
cnlled for an emergent meeting of the
lodge that he might visit it offloially

ofiicort, at a meeting in the afternoon,
exemplified the various degrees tu the
entire satitfaotion ol tht R. W. Bro,,
who, for a short while, lectured them
upon the moral force ot the craft work.

the ball spared no pains in making it
the successful affair wbich it proved to
be and their efforts were ably seconded

was tastefully furnished in crimson
effect, while blue and white festooning
with evergreen predominating, weie
the color effects oi the main portion
ot the ball. Historical emblems of the
order, made from cedar, met the eye at
every turn. A large column ten feet
in height, surmounted with chapiter
aud glebe and trimmed with net work,
lilly work and pomegranates, stood at
each side of the stage Life sixe
figures, representing Justice, Temperance. Fortitude and Prudence decorated
the four corners ol the main hall, f-.ces
takan from master-pieces of Art giviug
a lifelike appearance to the deeigns.
Pillars in the Ionic, Tusoan, Doric,
Corinthian and Composite orders of
architecture, togolhor with other emblems of the order, ndornad the other
portions of the walls. All the designs
were worked in evergreen, nccsssiiu-
ting a lot of labor, bul making an
effect at once beautiful and interesting.
The refreshment committee excelled
themselves in the dainty edibles pro
vided for the occasion, and the atten
