building*'up very fast and anticipates
a large amount of business.' It is being built of green lumber, and Tittle
comfort will be experienced by the
occupants this winter.-' ■ The N. & S.
railway will reach the Forks this
month, and its prospects are bright
for a good business, although 'many
people are of thc opinion that it will
not be able to "run all winter, and
that .pre and supjjlies will" come and
go via Kaslo. The railroad authorities state that the road, will run without interruption, and no doubt they
understand tlieir business. .s
,.The oiitput of tlie mines this winter
will be more* than double the'entire
oitjiput'of the Slocan up to date. The

low in many Cases, some of the con
tractors not being - familiar with ' the
packing of ore down steep mountain
trails,'- filled with maiiy feet of snow.
The New School.
-■ The public meeting announced for
Saturday, to ratify the selection of a
school site made by the Board/ did
not materialize to any great extent,

companies for clear deeds to the property. On receipt of these the Board
wiil call for tenders for the erection
of the new building, according to the
Government plans and specifications.
The site .selected is on the south side

proven that as the vein descends it

Wood was coming from,    a!
In a recent sermon preached py a
young divine in Kaslo, the editor of
this paper was classed along with
Renan, Voltaire and Prof. Huxle'y,in
regarp! to religious mat.teis.    As' we
did not hear the sermon we suppose
it   consisted   of  a   tirade   of abuse
against science in endeavoring to expose the many frauds that have been
fpisted upon a trusting and toying-
public by parsons and priests of every
sect, .color and creed,    It is natural
for preachers to oppose and denounce
all men who pour'tlie cold'water of
truth upon tjieirfrothy,emotional and
awe-inspiring   account   of a  future
state of existence,   about which no
man knows anything.    It is the business of sky pilots to denounce everything that is bad and injurious to the
human race.    We do the same, but
we do not believe  in  teaching men
that  they  can  steep themselves in
crime until the eleventh hour and by
repenting be enabled to wear white
'wings and sing through all eternity,
while the poor editor who does not.
repent works an: endless shift in a
place that is so hot that earthly fire
would seem like ice in it.    We believe in people living good lives, and
gettingall the joy jthey can on  this*
wMrjLing planet.    We believe in all
the good  things   spoken   of in the
Bible, Tbut we think the world is far
enougkadvanoed to do without   the
traditions,, febles, indecent and filthy
langhat^el^hat is still 'so plentifully
found in a book, yet reverenced by
thousands of people) most  of whom,
have never read it from cover to
cover. ;Tt is time people did   more
thinking for themselves,   and   paid
less attention to rabid sectarians, most
of whom preach because they are too
lazy to work, and prefer   to   shout
about something once or twice a week
rather than work the other six days
at some business of practical use   to
humanity.    The   parsons   have  the
best of every trade and profession. A
man has to die to find out more than
they know,   and   then   he   has   no
chance to come back, and take his
money off the collection plate, in case
things are not as represented by his
particular church.    The parson holds
the key in every land, and if we had

A woman   was recently .fined at
New Denver for selling liquor without a license at Three Forks.    She
sold the liquor at a saloon and did not
have a red curtain in her house.    If
she had charged 25 cents a drink and
used red curtains at her windows not
a word would have been  said.    It
would  seem  that  the   demi-monde
have the best of respectable women
when it comes to the question of selling liquor without the usual .license
necessary   everywhere   else.     The
law is twisted strangely in this glori
ous section of British Columbia,   andC
the public can draw their own con-.
elusions therefrom.
