The Nolson News prints a long
screed Irora an anonymous Johnny
who wants tho' mines and other industries of British Columbia worked
by Chiimmon. Ho raves about the
lack of capital in this, province nnd
claims that labor has been the scarecrow in* keeping capital away Irom
tho natural wealth that Nature has
sown so "thickly amid the f'sea of
nruntains."' lie would fill up all
this beauteous and bountiful B.C.
•••th yellow slaves, so that the barons
of Europe could bathe in champagne
and throw bunches of coupons at tiny
kinds") ot birds they might fancy,
soiled or clear. lie would make this
shining jewel of the great Dominion a
mere dumping ground for the scabs
of China, and whatever white trash
that would work amongst them.
It is not labor that has caused th-.j
depression in many of the mining
camps of 13. C, but  the   manipulations "of  crooked   promoters   and
general jobbers in wild-cat schemes
We/have been cursed with a class
of-jicrooks  who prefer to mine the
public instead  of the ground    In
order to square themselves with their
■.'"victims they blame it upon the hard-
^handed fellows who hit the drill.   In
these pirates we find a
of mine managers in B. C ,
'-who, through   some' blood or other
^.■yinQtietiCi*., have been put in charge
•i^mof mines when they  are scarcely
ing excitemcu. The editor of the
excitement never blames the sins of
its owner on mute and helpless
money.     '    	
Years ago when wc first read that
the way to hell is paved with good
resolutions, wo thought that the
author was crazy. Experlouco and
observation has proved to us that he
was wise in the ways of human
nature. Never tako a vow that you
will swear off anything. Tf you arc
tired ot booze or anything else just
iiuit and say nothing to man or your
God: If you fall back you will not
sink so decn, for the remorse of a
plighted resolve will not be present
to sink its-blighting spurs into your
retentive memory.

Djmocratic Canada prescuts tl.c
snrry spectacle of having turned
down e*i*ry Labor candidate who
sought to enter the parliamentary
arena. In aristocratic Old England
they have just chosen Thomas Richards, Labor, to represent the constituency vacated througn the death
of Sir William Vernon Harcourt, by
a majority of 4,035 over the Conservative baronet Sir John Cockburn.
Canadian democracy stands to learn
much from its fellow-workers in slow
and steady Britain.
Toronto's Trade and Labor council is petitioning for the abolition of
the $"203 nomination lee lcquiredat
provincial and federal elections.
Do the electorate require further
proof of the vantage given to party-
ism over that ot patriotism? Let
them watch the patriotic sacrifices of
the present government with its
seventy odd of a majority. Will the
Liberal'party'demonstrate its deep
concern for Nationalism by strengthening the combetiva -forces in .parliament with a few seats out of a majority more cumbersome than workable? J'atrii'tism would 'so suggest,
but party ism meets it with an emphatic refusal.
A leading Biston divine of the
Baptist persuasion ha3 been pouring
hot gospel shot into the ears of his
congregation. Alter censuring them
on their political associations, he
sailed for the churches in having
among them men as oflice-bearers
whose business relations were open
tJ suspicion. He said there was one
deacon of the Baptist church, the
richest man in the world, who had
no right in a Baptist church or any
other church, This • was a direct
shot at John D. HockefJullcr, whose
methods of getting money and whose
general conduct, the minister afterwards said, was not coin* alible
with church membership" Had
such a statement beon made on a
oublic platform or in the public press,
it would have Leen dubbed "rank
Socialism," but ministers arc privileged characters. Would we . had
more true servants of that great
Christian Socialist who delighted in
teaching the equality of man.

In Montreal the authorities blame

Why Xogro Js Called Coon.
Many years ago, when supersti
tion held greater away than now.'
and the. influence of the occult and
weird were more potent, a cunning
negro slave had acquired the reputa
tion of possessing a familiar spirit
and of being'able to peiforra many
uncanny mysteries. His fellow
slaves held hiiu in great awe, and
even his master began to, believe iii
his powers. This finally led to a
wager, in which the greater part a.l
the master's fortuuo was siakidon
the negro's divining ability. A Iur
rel was placed-on the 'awn"and a
live coon placed under the barrel.
Then tbe negro was sent for and told
to inform the crowd what was under
the barrel. He tried in various wa>s
to escape exposure, but without success. -Realizing that he was cornered,
he leaned on the barrel deiec'.cdly
and remarked, "Well, you've got
dis ole coon at last," whereupon a
great shout applauded wbat was considered" Sambo's remarkable astuteness and his reputation 'firmly estab-

If jou want reliable information

go abroad to obtain it. Following is
a Hungarian newspaper account ot
the situation in the United States
published before election:
Theodore Roosevelt, the American
president, has a new rival for the
presidency. There is about to be an
elect-on in the United States and
Mark Hanna, a powerful man, will
oppose him. It is difficult to understand clearly tho Ametican conditions in this country, but wc learn
upon investigation that before he became president, Roosevelt was a
cowboy, and cowboysbeing the domiii-
ent party In the United States, they
elevated their companion totho presidency, Alter Roosevelt's election
the cowboys demanded the best
offices, including two places in the
cabinet, but Koosevelt ignored their
demands so they decided to avenge
themselves nnd defeat him for reelection, The cowboys wield a tremendous powur in the United States
west of Now York city and they have
offered the presidency to Hanna.
Hanna has never been a cowboy but,
being ambitious, he'has accepted the
nominaiion, and it is thought lie will
be elected. We learn that Hanna

Distinction Without'a Difference
An Irishman somewhat under the
influence of liquor, ambling towards
home on a recent evening, happened
to pass a church, and, being at
tracted by the sound of music, paused
for a while and then staggered
towards the entrance.
With his natural kind of camion,
he looked at the spire to see that the
proper kind of cross was on it, for to
the mind of most good Catholics it
would bo almost a sacrilege to go
into a Protestant ohurch. He saw
the cross, which apparently satisfied
his scruples and he went in, sitting
down in a pew near the door.
The heat being somewhat oppressive, he fell asleep.
After the. service had ended the
sexton began at the altar to turn out
the lights.
Coming down the aisle ho tr-pped
over the .foci of the sleeping man in
the rc-.v, and, looking down, diag-
oniscd the case in a moment.
He gave the sleeping man a shake
and said: "See here, my good mnn,
wake up and get out of here at once.
You are in the wrong place, anyway—this is not your church.
The Irishman sat up, rubbed his
eyes, and, developing an argumentative strain, said in a rather thick,
gulteral voice:
It ain't my church? Then whose
church is it, if it isn't mine?
This is the Protestant Episcopal
church —
It's no such tliing!
I tell you it is, and you mart get
out of hero.
Uo straightened himself up, and
pointing a wavering finger toward
the alia.', said:
Isn't thut the statue of St. Joseph
up there on the right?
The sexton was forced to reply in
•',''.•■ afiiniiativc.
Ain't that tho Virgin's statue on
tho left ?
Ycb, replied the cexton.
What is that in tho center ?
That is the statue of our Saviour.
Tho Irishman, with a look of
mingled ttiumph and contempt, said,
lookiDg the sexton as nearly in tho
eye as he could:

•THE LEDGE, FERNIE,  B.C., JANUARY
4.  '905
|, TRUE. ■ HAPPINESS
Old Esolelte, the wise man, trembled,
fur well he r,ead displeasure in llie incs-
safje of the king; and well he knew—
indeed, none knew better—what the
message meant. The messiifje wns
brief. "Appear," it said, and Ksolelte
gathered the skirts of his gown into his
hand and hurried nervously to Ihe
fearful audience.
He was an old man, grown old in
serving a thankless king, and now, he
thought to himself, as like as not he
was to set a task beyond his strength.
Numberless limes the king had demanded all but the impossible of him
but his wits, his good fortune and linking'* pardonable dislike to making :m
end of the last of his wise men, had,
so far, saved his head. He was til-
ready "the survival of the fittest,"
Urdward and Mollo and Sansline had
e«ch in turn displeased the king and
payed for it with (heir lives. It was
the sort of a debt which King Derrod
collected promptly from all ho thought
owed it to him. Sometimes it hurl
him to do it, but he was an impartial
monarch and boasted of l)£S|pg "°
favorites. When Ethra, hissf|«ingest
and most beautiful wife, so far forgot
herself as to sing the same song to him
twice, he shut his eyes to her loveliness and did his duty, and I am sure
no one mourned her.'more, than did the
king; no, not even his other wives.
So Esolette's fear as he threw himself on the ground before the king may
be pardoned. "Oh King, live forever!
What wilt thou with thy servant ?" he
cried.:'.'.
The king frowned on him sourly
and quoth: "Yea, '.Ksolelte, wc have
sent for thee, and if thou can'st accomplish this task which we now set 'thee,
it will be thy last, and thou can'st have
ought that thou desires! of our kingdom, even to the half of it, but,mark
ye, Esolette, and thou failelh. it will
be thy last task, for then will thy life
be forfeit. Esolelte," and here the
king dropped his sternness .anJ spoke
. almost in a whisper, "Ksolelte, I am
aa unhappy man. Well 1 know that 1
hive youth and health, broad and fertile lands, and strong castles filled with
all manner of precious gear, yet Kso-
.lelte, I am unhappy. Well I .know-
that I have a noble company of honest
knights about me, uud the fairesl wives
of any ruler of the earth, and yet, Kso-
.lettc, 1 am unhappy. I have cellars of
choicest wines, and my table  is loaded
'With the choac.it yropam mail   Iraiitsi aitj
viands, and in my strong box are the
choicest of jewels, and bag upon bag
of gold, and yet, I say to thee, Esolette, I am unhappy.
"Make thou me perfectly happy, and
ask what thou wilt; fail, and thou
shall join thy three departed confreres,
I have spoken. Now leave me and on
the morrow come to me with thy plan."
Esolette slowly rose from his knees
and tottered from the presence. And
all that night in his chamber he walked
and moaned as one in pain and beat
his breast with his hands, for he looked
upon himself as no better than a dead
man.
But just before morning had awakened in Ihe east, sleep overlook him,
and il happened in this wise lhat he
might sleep. For as he stripped him
of his shirt, he held it in his hands a
moment and murmured to himself:
"Behold thekirtle of a most unhappy
ma.nl Would that 1 had llie kirtle of
u happy one to place before the king."
And he smiled faintly as an idea sprang
into life in his mind, and then he slept.
And on the morrow Esolette appeared before the king, and, throwing
himself flat upon the ground, said: "O
Worshipful! Live for ever I And ihou
would'st be perfectly happy, thou must
sk-ep for one night's length in the
kirtle of a happy man."
And the king smiled upon him and
said: "My wise Esolette, and this he
true I wilt dispatch messengers to the
four corners of my kingdom lo find this
happy man and then demand the use
of his kirtle for the length of one night.
And do thou, prop of my throne, bethink thee what thou wilt ask of nic,
and whatnoevcr it may be it is thine."
Then Esoletie bowed again and kissed
the hem of the king's robe and departed.
And straightway the king dispatched
twenty and nine of his r.-.osl trusted
messengers to search far and near until they had come upon such an one as
they sought. Many they found who
were somewhat charmed wilh life, but
never the Perfectly Happy Man found
they. At first they went among the
nobles thinking, because of their rich
estates and luxurious environs, here, if
anywhere, happiness would be. Yet it
was not so, and presently they searched
among the commoner people, finding
much joy and the best of good-fellowship, but the Perfectly Happy Man
they found nol.
And so time went forward. The
search continued, hut every day King
Derrod became more and more disconsolate. He would sit for hours awaiting tlle return of his messengers,
plucking at his beard, nor could any
.comfort   him.   As   for   Ksolelte,   you
might say  he   was  as a man-who had
loaned his wits lo another,
And it fell out on a certain day, and
ihe day was in August, and the quest
till but given over, lhat a tired messenger of I lie,king, wearied with fruitless
search, stumbling through a, field of
ripening grain, chanced on the prostrate form of ;i sleeping man. With
swarihy face turned 10 the full glare of
the sun, mouth open, fiat on back lay a
ps!!-.'tiit youth of some twenty odd summers. Right brawny he was, and in a
heavy, physical way not a liltie comely,
with his fair head of cuils made lo
seem fairer by the deep brown sun-Inn
on face and neck. He was bin half
clothed and that half of (he poorest,
yet a snii'e sat upon his lips and the
sweat slond in little beads on his temples, for the sun was very hot and the
heavy odor of ripening grain made il
seem holler. The messenger aif the
king was for passing mi about his business, but something in the lad's smile
slopped him and he bent down and
shook the sleeper.
lie waked will) a prodigious sigh,
as one who is interrupted in the midst
of a pleasant dream, and the sigh
grew and developed into a full-Hedged
yawn. He sal up and rubbed bis eyes.
They were bluer than the wind fiowers
of (he roadside. He plucked a straw
stubble and mechanically put one end
of it in his mouth, (lien he caught Ihe
shadow of the messenger and turned
to him wilh a slart "Aye, master, an'
what's yer wull o' me ?" The messenger looked tit him steadily. " Lad,"
he,said, "Art happy?" The peasant
thought f. .* " minute. 'Twas a new
question to his miml. It had never
entered into that mind before
to question happiness. Surely, every
one was happy. Tor what else was
life? Wasn't there for every one the
sunshine and •.varmth, Ihe eating of
good victuals, and the joy of sleep, and
lie answered in a decided way, "Aye,
mastei."
" Perfectly happy?" was the next
query.
"Aye, master, that I be," and this
lime without hesitation. A look of
delighted surprise came into the mes
senger's face. "Then loan me thy
kirtle that I may take it to the king,
nnd receive the promised reward. I laste
varlet and give me thy kirtle. Art
deaf?"
The   lad's  clear  eyes  wandered   far
off   over    lilt-    1 a 111-4    of    yellow,    hrcczc-
swepL grain. There came the suspicion of a lurrow between theai, his
glance returned to t'*c wind flowers
blossoming by the roadway. He arose
and in a stride was where he could
pluck one before he answered:
" Master, I know ye not, but I tell
ye again I be as happy as this little
blue (lower that laughs at the sun and
drinks in the rain and trusts'in' God.'
As for loaning ye my kirtle, why, man,
master, I've had none this three year."
Stunned, angered, and disappointed
when he had thought the reward all
but won, the messenger turned upon
his heel and departed. And when he
had come his way into the presence of
the king he told his story and the king
ros-e up in wrath and slew tlie_messen-
ger, .wherefore he had brought the tale
of true li.-ippini'ss, but not the kirtle
whereby lie might make it his own.
ml Ksolelte was summoned and
liini "sila-o did the king slay with his
own hand. So was the king left without'wisemen and also without happiness.
Itut far over in a sunny .corner of the
kingdom,'timing his song to the swing
of his scyihe, whistling gayly to his
dog which sported with the field mice
whose homes the scythe laid bare, was
1 kirilek-ss, sun-blackened youth, who
could have told that happiness is as a
nulli-loiied sunset, which may be
caught and held by the soul of the
pure and simple, but 10 the worldly-
wise, just a sunset, e\i|ui-iteaiiil longed
for iu vain, clu-ive, evanc-ceiil, soon
fading into night.
Cily to attend lo his businez** here. Behind this bare statement there Is a romance.
"Three years ago Mr. Mead was in
Tonopah when that camp was. unknown. Meed was taken seriously ill
and O'Brien nur>**'d him and cared for
him until he became • well. At that
time O'Brien was only .a poor, prospector. When Mead left the camp he
gave O'Brien his tent, blankets outfit
and grub.. O'Brien, true to the miner's
instinct, had remembered the man
who grubstaked him.'-'
AMBITION.
What is ambition? 'Tis a glorious cheat.
It seeks the chamber of the gifted boy.
And   lifts   his    humble    window   and
comes in.
The narrow walls  expand  and spread
away
Into a kingly palace and the roof
Lifts  lo  ihe sky, and  unseen  fingers
work
The ceiling  with  rich ■ blazonry,  and.
write
His name in burning letters oyer all.
And ever as he shuts his wilder'd eyes,
The phantom comes, and lays upon his
lips
A spell that murders sleep,  and   in his
car
Whispers a deathless word, and on his
brain
Brealhes a fierce thirst no waters will
allay.
He is  its  slave  liencefortb—His  days
are spent
In chaining down his heart, and watch-
■ ing where
To rise by human weakness. His nights
Bring him no rest in  all   their blessed
hours ;
His kindred are forgotten or estranged;
Unhealthful   fires burn constant in his
eye;
His lip grows restless, and its smile is
curl'd
Half into  scorn; till  the   bright, fiery
boy.
Thill 't was a daily blessing bnt to see,
His spirit was so bird-like and so pure,
Is frozen in the very flush of youth,
Into a cold, care-freited, heartless man.
And  what   is  ils   reward ?   At best a
name !
Praise—when   the  ear has grown too
dull to hear;
Gold—when the senses it should please
are dead;
Wreaths—when the hair they cover has
grown gray;
Fame—when  the   heart it should have
thrill'd is numb.
All things but   love—when love is all
we want,
And close behind conies death, and ere
we know,
That even thcseunavailing gifts are ours
He  sends   us, stripped  and  naked, to
the grave.       -   —N. P. Willis.
Lacked a Lawyer's Facility.
Lawyer—Never mind what yo think,
we want facts here. Tell us where you
first met this man.
Woman Witness—Can't answer it.
If the court doesn't care to hear what 1
think there's no use questioning me,
for I am not a lawyer and can't talk
without thinking.—Boston Bulletin.
A LUCKY (JHrilSTAKK.
W. II. Mead, a well-known business
man of Baker City. Ore., who, three
years ago, grubstaked a Tonopah prospector lis nil act ol" friendship, and to
show his appreciation of attentions
given him when iie wns in that cunp
and sick, has jiisi been Minified lliat
property worth $.''0,000 has been left
to him by the man lo w bum he turned
over his blankets when leaving the district. The Baker Cily Democrat tells
the story as follows:
"W. II. Mea.l, Ihe well-known
Baker Cily business man, yesterday received the happy new?, in a letter from
the county clerk of Nye county, New,
the county in which Tonopah is situated, that Toiiiiny O'Brien, who died a
few day. ago, had left him sole heir to
all hi*, properly, consisting of mines in
llie lioldliehl camp valued al $-'",o,o'>o.

Investment, Not Expense
Advertising  is -an  investment,  says
the Sacramento, California, Bee.
Like an investment, in bonds or in
stocks or anything else.it is expected
to bring in returns; but, like them and
all other investments, it is accompanied
with some risk. The risk is mostly a
matter of judgment: in matter, method
and medium. Too many advertisers,
fignre advertising as expense, however, and are.more interested in getting
it down as close as possible than in
figuring it as an investment and trying
to see haw much they, can get out of
it. The advertiser who is anxious to
sec how much space he can get for a
liltie money is pretty sure to neglect
the more important matter of putting
the proper things into that space to
make it profitable. Not tbat advertising should not be bought as economically as possible—space should be
bought as carefully as auything else—
bnt, unlike merchandise, which, being
well bought, is half sold, advertising
space may be bought ever so cheap
and yet be next to worthless because
true value is not made use of.

corner and extols tlie virtues of a corn salve interspersed with a rag time tunc on a banjo, and a
■ concert hall song or two in a cracked voice, it is'luiman

stepping into a drug store and getting a reliable article

Tlio IJiiiiclier
A special correspondent of The Birmingham' Daily Post thus sums up his
impressions of the ranching country of
tlie foothills :--To the young Knglish-
iiinn, with knowledge of cattle, some
money, fond of a hiacing open life,
willing to rough it, there is r.o mure inviting life than ranching on,the foolhills
of the Rockies. I saw lots of Knglisli-
uien ; there is room for plenty more.
There tire not the pleasures of Ihe city ;
but there are deeper, more abiding
pleasures. The last day 1 spent in the
ranching district will long linger in
memory. We had been away south
fraini Macleod, visiting the reserve of
the Blood Indians, following the long
trail down to .Montana nud fording a
river with water up to the belly-bands
of the horses. At limes we met in-coming settlers, with white hooded "prairie
schooners," and driving their lifty oi-
sixty head of c.iltle before ihem.. Ail
over the heaves of the hills were lu-id.-.
As evening closed there was the p^ing
of winter in the air. A russet h.i/i.io.-s
was on the illimitable land—llie iv-..,i;
of Indian prairie lireb M)inewln.ie--.i.i.i
when the moon rose it was an in.t...•.»■
ball. The galloping riders, laught.:^,
joking, setting their ho ses against a-ne
another in race, seemed shadowy and
mysterious on those great silent lands*,
wilh not even the hoot of a night bird
to be heard. It was a- true western
picture, liul there was no western
crudeuess—such as you read of in story
books. There was a dashing.young
horsewoman, who gave the pace across
the prairie—and it was only ~a few
months before 1 had met her iu an
English drawing-room

.laps for Atliu
Some  two  jwtrs   ago  efforts   were
mtiee lo employ Japanese  on the Atlin
hydraulic mines.   The opposition of the
white mircr*, liowsver, was so strong
that the mine owners  desisted in Iheir
efforts     There appears to be in the air
an attempt to reintroduce the Japanese.
Mine owners urge that il is not possible
to operate many of the large  hydraulic
mines   without   reducing   the   cost   of
labor.    The mine owners also point out
that there are lewer while miners in the
mine-, now, than  formerly.    They  now
I propose  lo work the mines on a larger
' scale and employing Japanese only ai
] manual  laborers,  they  pul  the  white
i mineis to work as foremen, iherebv in-

Honor for ;i Hun .
Grandershim, a German \illage,
some time since was en fete. The occasion was the honoring of a hen which
had laid its thousandth egg. Many of
the houses we're decorated with flags,
while in the evening the proprietor of
ihe hen entertained his friends to supper, at which the principal dish was a
gigantic omelet. The function was a
splendid success, and the health of the
hen w.is drun'K wit's gr<.-.tt c-ntliusiliain.
