The Medical Council of British Columbia should be abolished. It is a

, The Medical Council of British Columbia, judging from the Kamloops

Canada would establish a precedent
if it built a navy for its own use, after
building so many railways for othor

would not look right when held up to-

inside track with the government,
and stood to make millions,out of the
undertaking. - According to the
scheme with which Mr. Kussell is
credited, he was to buy up three
members of the government, two
leading newspapers—one French, the
other English—several Liberal candidates, alter the nomination, when
others could not ho put in their place,
and was to be assisted by Mr. Blair
in a scheme that plainly meant the
defeat of the Laurier government by
a dishonest and treacherous game of
: cm-throat politics. Fortunately it
failed. It was too big a game tote
worked in silence, and Sir Wilfrid
got on to it before the explosion of
the mine. This is the way things
look up to date, and possibly the
truth may not be made known until
parliament meets, when an investigation is likely to beheld, and.every-
thing laid bard that the government
may disire to publish. It is a fortunate circumstance that all parties
to the transaction aro Liberals. So
far as known, not one Conservative
politician is implicated inthescherae.

The Bruce Herald makes tho (ol
lowing   remarks   upon    a    daring
scheme that failed.   It says:
"The country is yet mystified by
the -proceedings surrounding the
resignation of.Mr. Whir'from the
chairmanship of thc railway commission. Early in the week Mr. Blab
published a statement which denies
evorything but explains nothing. It
leaves his reputation in a bud position before - the country. Iu thc
meantime, however'some sido lights
have been thrown on the transaction
by tho proceedings of a railway promoter at Ottawa named UurscII. This
enterp'ising upuculator seemst to be
the originator of tlie whole scheme,
thc object of which appears lo have

Htruciion ol the now trans.ontincnial

that I no longer believe in a great

me as a heretic. My God is a great
and ever present force, which is
manilest in all the activities of man'
and all the workings of nature.
' I believe in a God who is in and
through and of everything—-not an
absentee God, whom we have to
reach through a Bible or a priest or
some other outside aid, but a God
who is closer to us than hands or feet,
Science, literature and history tell
us lhat there is one eternal energy,
that thc Bible can no longer be accepted as ultimate,- that many of its

were, like all laws, a gradual growth
and that man is a creature, not a
"No thinking man will say there
are manv energies. The days of
polytheism are past. There is only
one energy. That energy has always beeu working. It is an intelligent energy. No scientist can deny

A Good Year
The past year litis been very
gratifying to Canadian Pacific shareholders. The revenue largely ex

exceeded half ii mil I Ion acres.    The

has been done on the prairio sections,

in the mountain.^ shorten d and
•straightened, and important brandies
built.. The same program will be
continued .next year.
. A significant hot is the announcement thnt President Thomas Sliauirh-
nessy has signed a contract with the
Canadian steel works for 25,000 tons
of eighty-pound steel rails. This is
the first order for r.iils from the Siuh
works, and tho works is about to
close a contract with tho Pera Marquette and another American road
for two large orders.
Both the Grand Trunk nnd the
government transcontinental railway
commission are energetically pushing'surveys for the new road, the
former from Winnipeg west and the
latter east.
In connection witli the Biiti'h C<>1-
uinbh sec'ion of the road, /...McLeod

the government about a novel

been announced for another Canadian

a point not many miles from Battleford, and next year rails will be laid
to Edmonton to complete the middle
or prairio section of the road.
The Canada Gazette contains two
important applications, throwing
light upon the eastern plans ot Mackenzie and Mann. The original
intention had been to acquire the
Canada Atlantic from Georsion Bin-
to the Ottawa river near Mon
treal where the Great Northern controlled by Mackenzie and Man,
would have connected with the ocean
port of Quebec. But the Grand
Trunk acquired thc Canada Atlantic
Now Mackenzie and Mann arc applying for authority to bnild from
Uawksbury, the Great Northern
terminus to the mouth of the French
river on Georgia ,i Bay, where con
nection will be made with tho James
Bay road, now building. A further
application covers a line from Sudbury, on the James Bay road, to
Port Arthur, to connect with thc
present eastern end of thc Canadian
When these links have been completed, Mackenzie and Mann will
have a through road from Quebec to
Edmonton; and probably in the mean
time they will have carried forward

THE LEDGE,   FERNIE,   B.C.,  JANUARY ir,  1905
So It G 00s
if virtue were ns guy as sin,
how easily might virtue win?
If right went laughing by, like wrong,
The devil would  lose  half his throng.
If day sought pleasure like the nighl,
Dawn  need not blush to lace the light.
But virtue seems so cold anil proud
That merry sin attracts the crowd.
AikI right lias such a solemn air,
Men follow wrong the debonair.
And care so eats die daytime up—
.At nighl they seize mad folly's cup,
And drink forgelfulncss 'lil dawn,
And so the queer old world goes on.

Great Drop in Valuo.
Henry Clews, the Wall slreet propnet,
was talking aboul a stock that bad
dropped in value.
Great vvas its fall,   he said.     Il was
pathetic.    It made  me think ol an incident   Ibe other   day   iu   an   express
ollice.    To   this   ollice a  burly,   kind
looking young man came with a pack
age under his arm.
"I want   to express  this package,"
he said.
The clerk as usual asked him "What
is the nature of llie contents of the
"ft is," said the simple-minded
youth in a sad tone, "a bundle of letters from a young lady. I am returning them to her." ':
"Their value?" said ihe clerk.
The viumg man swallowed.
" 1 don'l know what their value is
now," he said huskily, "but a weok
ago 1 thought they were worth about
ball a million dollars."

There is but littic demand ns yet for
.uranium; Only about iMO tons ol uranium ore, yielam<r from •! to 18 per cent
ot the metal, are cousuuied in tho world
Colorado haa supplied practically all
that tho United States have produced,
and this has gone almost entirely tc
Europe. France, England and Germany are the principal markets. Tlie
metal is hard anil very heavy (!>. 181) and
it is moderately muleable. Tt resembles
nickel and iron, and its color is that of
nickel. At ordinary temperatures, it
is not affected hy water; at red heat,
however, the surface .oxidizes.
The railroad men employed at Black
Butte mountain, north of Moutit Shasta,
Siskiyou   county,   Cal.,   in  shoveling
gravel on tho work trains, have .uncovered an immense body of ice, supposed  to   have  lain  thero  for  many
thousands of yeari-..   The railroad com
pany hau steam shovels, rock-breakers,
and a large number employed in removing eravel from this mountain lor
ballasting the tracks, and consequently
haul away  an  extensive quantity of
ground    This body of ico is. supposed *
to bo the result of an avalauche'ot snow
in a prehistoric ago, now 'covered • up
by a great amount of ground sliding on
top or else accumulating Bince.   The
ico is reported to be of first-class quality
and may prove serviceable to tho railroad company for their own use and for
sale; if it develops  into   a  great ice
quarry.   It may possibly.be the foundation of the.hill, which  is very high
and looms up into a sleep cnne-shitped
mountain of soft gravel and earth.
The north pole is not the only magnet drawing explorers to the fur north.
Several exploring pyrtiea aro following
up the indications of mineral  wealth
discovered in the far north regions in
recent  years.    An   Anglo-Norwegian
enterprise   has spent   the summer  iu
SDitzberijen, where it is intended to de
velop the existing coal resources for the
benefit of the north of Norway.   The
district is near King's bay on tho west.
Coal is also reported on the southeast at
Stoafjord.   .The necessary machinery
for mining the coal and the material for
a wire railway have gone to the King's
bay district, where tlie coal has heen
found near a convenient harbor at Advent bay.   Greenland is also.'credited
with a reputation for valuable minerals
which a Copenhagen merchant has his
eye upon, and has titted out two expeditious to investigate.   A large cryolite
mine is doing a big business at Iwigtuk,
largely for Uncle Sam's benefit, and
partly for Denmark. The miners mostly
winter in Denmark, and havo in stock
two years'provisions.
The Lead Daily Call makes mention
of the fact that the Ilomestake company has up to tho present time turned
out approximately one hundred and
fifty tons of pure gold. Such an amount
of  the   precious metal   is hardly conceivable by the hupiau mind.   We. may
sve a bar worth  say $50,000 that is a
good load for a man to carry.   A mil
lion dollars in gold would be a good
load for a two horso team over country
roniis    It \\")uld bo a little over a ton
and a half in weight.   Ono ton Jof pure
gold is worth" SGO'2,328,17    A  hundred
and fifty* tons would havo a value of
approximately 800,400,000.   This reprn
sents   practically   the   product  of the
Homestake  mine alone     B-fore   this-,
company   purchased    the   Deadwood
Terra, Highland, Father Do Smut nnd
Caledonia properties the^'had madti a
total   production   of twenty eight and

of the Home'take and absorbed prop
erties np to nearly one hundred and
nineteen millions of gold production. -

A Grent Mine
A mining man says the next boom
will be in llie Similknmeen and Nicola
valleys. . He cited as one instance of
the ..'richness of the country that the
Nickle Plate mine was richer than anything struck in Cripple Creek or IVuish
Columbia hi the free milling line ; that
150 tons a day was being ire-tieJ an.i
$4,500 saved on the plates every -.lay, to
say nothing of thc concentrate!-; and
that Rogers, the manager, was coining
through tc Seattle, right along as
quickly as he could make the round
trips, bringing out barrels of bullion.
Rogers is increasing his mill to one
hundred' slumps and'is taking in a
twenly-ll*.e ton boiler, ihe biggest ever
hauled over the roads in British Columbia, and he expected to see llie day
when this mine would yield Si0,000
per diem.        -
The Waldorf
The Waldorf, one of the finest hotels
in the West was opened
Monday: The house.cont
aud elegantly furnished
appointments of llie h.ir, dining, writing and sitting rooms are first class.
The house is healed' with hot water,
and brilliantly; lit with electricity. Return call bells make it particularly easy,
for guests, especially-* in the msniing.
The bar is equal to almost-anything in
New York. The fillings behind it are
made from black walnut, and local car-
pen Icrs received several hundreds of
dollars for putting the work together.
This hotel and ils equipment is a credit
to Fernie and the enterprising landlord
who litis put $20,000 cash into the venture. The rates are $2 a day and upwards, and it is safe to say that The
Waldorf will always have plenty of
the old, pokcr-plajing Kentucky Col
onel, as your correspondent walked up
to him and olTcreil him a cigar. "Let's
see. , Did 1 e\or tell you of the time
Henry Clay lust his line property, the
Olympian Spiings, out ton miles here,
'way hack in tho >•*, to George Lansdowne? No? Well, sit down and I
will tell you ninuii it.
"1 was a little shaver then, and used
lo go with my father out to see Henry
Clav'when he owned and lived for a
time at the 'i,-*ri.igs,'as we called them
then. ^ All the girls and hoys from all
over the South, clear lo Now Orleans,
used to come up there then, and they
had some great limes, I cm tell you.
Clay had a race track there, and some
of thc Moods brought thoir racers with
them .:nJ tltoti-ands of dollars were
soim-fuiie.-. tt.-ipered on a single race
There .U...S m-.-d lb\ hunting hereabouts
1 hen, at*d llie l.ainU-r.-a would gallop all
over Baili siis.i'ty nearly before they returned. Then they would lot their
hor.-a .-, rest up a day air two and then
they would have a race themselves out
oil the old course. And the dances they
had at the old Owings mansion, and
then out at the S; .ii.g> were marvels of
"The racing game and the courting
game was not all thoy had there in Ihe
old days. Old George Lansdowne
lived here in 0*ving>vill- then, and he
was worth anywhere from a quarter to
a half million uo.i.ir-,. He was a great
poker player anJ once in a while, when
he was feeling good, he would go out
to see Henry Clay, and they wouiii nave

chair back from the table and said,
'George, I 'have no more money hy yje
at this time, hut the Springs are mine.
Whal will you bet against ihem ?'
For some minutes   Lansdowne studied.    Then  he said;   "Henry,   1   have
long   wanted   the   Springs   property.
■They'will hu worth jusl $25,000101110
it' 1  win,  and  you will he thai much
ahead if you win.    Whal do you say?.
"Clay agreed, lind the Colonel pulled
a  long  wallet  out  of his  pocket and
counted out cash and   notes   for {ihe
$25,000     Then ihe game began again.
First  one would  lose   and- then   the
other.    At last Clay's luck again deserted him, and his pile of chips got lower
and lower.    Both had good hands and
both  stayed every  lime.    Clay would
raise, and Ihe old colonel, studying his
hand, as if he was in doubt, would see
it and stay.    Finally Clay threw down
his cards and said,"in llie vernacular of
that day, that he was all in.    He had
held a good hand, an ace liigh'straight
Hush of spades.   The old colonel looked
it  Clay's cards  a  moment  and  then
il his own hand.
. " 'A go.i.l hand, Henry,'lie said, 'a
good hand. But—' and then he laid
down slowly, one hy one, the ace of
diamonds, the .'king of d'umonds, the
queen of diamond", the jack of diamonds, and the ten of diamonds—the
royal flush—'this is a better one.'
"Clay-,pushed back his chair, and,
followed by the colonel, walk'-a] out of
llie room. A few days later the legal
transfer of the 'property was made, and
the colonel became owner ol llieSprings.
!iey have never been the same since,
■id never will be, I reckon."

the old colonel.
"Lansdnwnc seldom got the least bit
under the influence, as we say of gentlemen, but when he did lie'was a terror.
When the olJ colonel got angry, why,
I have seen him many limes when he
would swell up so in tlie neck from anger that his collar button would break
from his shirt and roll over the floor.
That always made the old colonel
"About the poker game ? Oh, yes.
Weil, one day, the old colonel woke up
and he sure was feeling Ins keeping.
He determined to go out and see how
his friend Henry Clay was doing. So
he had his nigger get his horse and
rode out there. Ai riving there and
partaking of a"slight refreshment Lansdowne proposed a poker game. Clay
agreed and the two went to tlie poker
room. Soon the game was on fast and
furious. First Clay would win what
there uas in sight and then Lansdowne
would . ome up with a good hand and
take everything "on the hoard. This
continued almost all day, hut along towards night Clay began losing steadily.
He lost and he lost.

his luck deserting  him, and still  Clay
