A Cute Trick
With the aid of the C.r.R. the
city of Nelsan turned a neat trick
on tho 17th. When the men received their cheques for August
about 70 of them found that 82 had
been deducted to pay the.road tax
in Nelson. Some of thorn "were not
liable for the tax for various reasons, and these were put to a loss
of time trotting to the city clerk's
office to have the mistake rectified.
The men do not object to paying the road tax if it is legal, tint
they are strong in denouncing tho
method of collection. They dislike
to be treated as though they wero
mere slaves, and incapable of attending to their own business. They
fail to see what the great C. P. R.
lias to do with collecting the
accounts of Nelson and think that
this city has enough of officials to
collect its bills without playing
sharp tricks and humiliating the
working man, the backbone of every
city and land, The action of the
city in the matter is a slur upon
the honesty of labor, and why a
great railroad would lend its aid to
such business is beyond our comprehension, unless some industrious
official wiehed to make a-rake-off.
This matter will bear ventilation.
If the C.P.R. carries a charter for
the collecting of taxes and other
debts the public would like to know
it, If they do they should be more
courteous and at least hand a man
a statement of" the account before
taking-the-ainouUu-ol--hin-eheque.-
The method of collecting the Nelson road tax from the workmen of
tho C.P.R. is a slap at the independence of man, and should not have
been tolerated for an instant by any
of the men.

London, Sept. 25.—Nelson, a
thriving little English town to
which Andrew Carnegie proposes
now to give a library, is a living
instance of the value of a name.
Not long after the battle of Trafalgar, some tiuker, tailor or other
persons established a tiny wayside
inu, and called it after the naval
hero. There was nobody on the
spot from whom to expect custom,
but the road led to aud from populous districts. Travelers stopped
at the place aud presently a cot-
tago or two began to raise, then
more of them, and the name of the
public house answered for the
whole. That was the nucleus of
the present town. Now 40,000
people live around the site which
the old innkeeper chose and called
after the name of his hero.
KI.OOAN   MINKS
From The Nugget
After all that has been written on
the subject by the Liberal press of
the Interior, Bob Green is not going to build an $8,000 house. Well,
what if he did build a house in
Victoria? Other cabinet ministers
have done so. If we are not mistaken Fred Hume, wheu in the
cabinet purchased a residence in
Victoria, and no one appeared to
think he committed a serious crime
by doing so. Mr. Hume is a Liberal?—IHt-is-notr-wrong-for-a-Lib-'
eral cabinet minister to own a
house, it surely cannot be vory.
wrong for a Conservative. If Mr.
Green chooses to spend his wages,
or salary, or income, in adding to
tho comfort and happiness' of his
family ho should—like any other
wage earner—bo allowed to do so
without criticism. His public acta
are fit subject for criticism; his
private life is his own.

ONTO   l'lUNCETON
The Great Northern Railway intends to proceed immediately with
the construction of a line of railway from Midway, in the Boundary district, to Princeton, in the
Similkameen, via Hetlley City.
The riches of the mineral deposits of tho Similkameen Valley
are to be turned i ii to the Granby
smelter at Grand Forks for reduction; James J. Hill president of
the Great Northern, owns the controlling interest iu the Granby
smelter; the Granby people own
large interests in the Tulameen
Boulder districts, and so it comes
about that James J. Hill is going
to build a line of railway right into the heart of the Similkameen to
act as a feeder for his smelter and
lines of railway to the Bouth of the
boundary line between Canada and
the United StateB.
A Step Forward
London, Sept. 25.—Glasgow, notoriously a city of shameful sights
and Bounds, which never seemed to
profit much from Sunday closing—
meeting tho usual fate of those who
attempt practical prohibition instead of wise limitation—has tried
another method, that of 10 o'clock
closing of public houses. For three
months the system has been in
vogue, and already there is a substantial betterment, so steady in
progress as to give solid foundation
to"a~h^ope~ior"^)ermanency'
_jrre~
port of the experiment states that
"the diminution in the week-end
•drunks works out at an average of
26 per week, and taking the returns
for complcto weeks the figures show
an average decrease of 32 per week.
The figures for all cases, including
'drunks.' show a decrease on the
whole of 48 per week." From this
it will be seen that as usually happens, decreased drunkenness is accompanied by a commensurate falling off iu crime generally, a notorious fact which ought to have produced greater attempts at reform
than havo yet been made. Liverpool people havo suggested early
closing for their city, but there may
be local circumstances which render that course not so certain of
effect an it has been so far in Glasgow. Tho control of the drink
trade haa always been full of intri*
cacies, and some people suggest that
persistent inebriety be punished
by a term of street sweeping or
public appearance in the stocks, as
it was under tho old Act of James,
iw an alternative in default of forfeiting (We shillings to the church
wardens for the use of the poor of
the pariah. It was an ecclesiastical offence in former timeM, and there
is littlo doubt that pulpit proclamation of confirmed wrongdoer*' would
go a long way to diminish the crime.
However, Glasgow, enterprising as
ever, has reason to congratulate
herself.

Blue Laws
At a meeting of the City Council
in New Westminster the other night
the Rev. J. S. Henderson, C. W.
Houghton and G. H. Morden appeared on behalf of the local Minis-
teriaLAagociation,Jihe„JLjQid!fl_J>ay-
Alliance, and the Church of England, and requested that the playing of the band on Sunday be stopped.    After the parsons had delivered their reasons why the band
should uot be allowed to discourse
music on Albert Crescent Sunday
afternoons the weak-kneed Mayor
and aldermen discussed the matter
in favor of blue laws, and the Mayor
was given the power to take whatever steps he thought advisible in
tho matter.   As he has declared
himself opposed to Sunday concerts
it is easily to see what he would do
with the Sunday concert.   If the
playing of the New Westminster
band is full of discord it might be
advisable to squelch their wind upon auy day, but if their music is
allright and  they are prohibited
from playing on Sunday tho blue
law crankB have won a victory,
and liberty is struck another, blow.

On GappbTfnS
Gambling is a bail thing for some
people—the losers. I have never
known a winner to have conscientious
scruples. He has no objections or complaints to make.   This is natural.
If you are not a winner, quit—if you
want to. If you like to lose, and can
sand it, that's your business. Thaold
adage applies here as well as elsewhere,
"If at first you don't succeed, try again."
It is rigid adherence to this principle
that keeps the same—any {fame—go-
i'tg. When the losers quit, Wall street
.shylocks and stock-jobbing joints will
suspend operation along with all other
games of chance. This is absolutely
tho only way to stop gambling. There
is an element of chance in almost every
venture in h'uthau life.
It is worst than a waste of breath and
ink to ask successful gamblers to forego
their pleasur? and profit. You can stop
horse racing—maybe—but you cannot
eliminate the gambling instinct from
man. Chase the "tiger" from one lair,
and he will go to another Stop one
game, and some othor method just as
effectivo will be invented.
Life itself is a game of chance, marriage a lottery, aud most people born
into the world today are accidents.
Even the Bible compares the Christian
life to a race course.
There are many ''endurance'' and
'speed trials" in which one may be en-,
tered. Mo_t people, however, run unplaced—are "never "in tho money.'1
" Comparatively few havo been able to
win an "East street" purse, much less
the "Millionair stakes."
In tho "Business Handicap" most
men "blow up" in the stretch.
In the "Political Derby" not a few
get "left at tho post." In the race the
jockey is a very important factor.
Hnnna will go down into history as
the premier jockey of his time. In the
recent Nomination Stake races at St.
Louis August Belmont grave Judge
Parker a "beautiful" ride. The trouble
with Teddy is he wauts to ride his jockey. This snows strenuosity, but bad
j udgetnent in a race horse.
""IVafl^a game oflTieflsrirT^inch_i«v
tions stake their fortunes and their
lives.
Professional life resembles a game of
poker more than anything else. It
gives better apportutiitles for "four-
flushing."
Farming resembles euchre, for tho
reason that the trusts hold both "bow
ers" and fix tho price of all tho fanner
has to Boll, and ever, thing he has to
buy. They manage to "euchro" him
out of his just profits.
Newspaper men, preachers and wage
earners play a game which closely resemble "craps."
Criminals play tho various games,
unfairly, and sometimes go lo jail and
sometimes to tho United States Senate
for "loading tho dice, using "dope" and
"stacking" the cards,
Tho law never did and never will
stop games of chance, You may stop
racing, close every gambling den, Including tne stock markets and boards
of trade, and men will bet on tho weather, elections, tho probable gender of
unborn children and flip coins In order
to woo tho smiles of flcklo Fortune.
Every man—even tho assoarcd,
long-nosed variety, who Insist upon
sticking his elephantine proboscis into
other people's business—thinks ho has
a right to do as ho plca.es with his own
mouoy.
Tho effort on the part of short-haired
women and longhaired men to regulate
every act of one's life by law is Idiotic.
Imbued with the spirit of personal lib
«'ty, evwvy bvave nun rnvntu at tho
cUnk of liluo law chains in tho bands
of thwte crunks.
The gambling Instinct is stronger in
some people than In other*. To illustrate:
"A pssMnger on a train wanted to
bet his companion 15.00 that tho train
would reach its diminution on time Ha
iefutcd. The other offered to bet him
live that It would get in late, and he
ilMllnetl lie then tried to bet him ten
that it wouldn't get in at all. Jmt tlmn
a* the good man reached (or hit money,
a wreck oceurod and he was hurled n
hundred feet In the air. As he came
down he met tht gambler going up.
As Itiey passed In mid air the gambler
yelled, 'I'll bet you • hundred tnat you
reach hell before I do!'"
WUb tivU UUpotUton liv all mankind,
T»**»*i1*flnn *« th* <m1v thine* rwwMble,
lMth«Kam«r*ep.ay*d absolutely (sir
—whether it be boise racing, btut.net*,
When a man sells stocks •••short," he
bets the amount of his margin that they
will go down. When he goes "long"
on the^market, he wagers bis money
that it1 will go up.
Think of one of these shylocks emerging from some of these gambling
dens on La Salle street to attend a
meeting of the "Citizens' Association"
called for tho purpose of discussing
ways and mcaMs to stop horse racing in
Chicago! It is amusing to see the
aforesaid "reformer" crammed to his
chops with the unearned fortunes of
others take tho floor to denounce "gambling." Such sublimated hypocrisy is
enough to queer them with the devil.
When it comes to the question of
gambling, "let him that is without sin
cast the. first stone." The air about
Harlem, Hawthorne and Worth wil1
then not be so "rocky" aud Sheriff Bar
rett's office windows will be in no danger, of getting smashed — Windle'.

To rivet fathers' votes.

MONEY IN SNAKES
There is no reason wiiy any matt
shoujd be out of a job. Most anybody
can make a living now until the snow
falls catching rattlesnakes alive and
chopping their heads off.
This is not one of those mythical
jobs like catching mosquitoes and pulling their teeth. There is really a big
demand for men, wemen and children
who want to make a little pin money
capturing rattlers. England has suddenly taken a great fancy to American
rattlesnake bags, belts and novelitcp.
On this account the rattlesnake skin
has gone up iu value during the last
thirty days more than. 50 per cent. One
professional snake catcher in Pike
Country, Pa , says he has an order for
1,000 skins.
Few people have any idea of what an
immense trade is carried on in America
in snake skins, Men in all parts of the
country follow snake catching regularly, and some of them make large incomes. The Newark tanners receive
salted skins from all parts of the United
States.
If the catcher knows how to capture
his snakes without bruising the bodies,
and also knows how to skin them, he
can always find a ready market in
Newark; which practically supplies the
would with snake and alligator leather.
The most common method of catching
rattlers is with a hand net or forked
stick. Some men use a sharp steel
pointed stick or shear. Others who
go after the big fellows set traps or
snake snares. These tire mado by tying live birds or rabbits inside an in-
closure of wire netting. When tho rattler xoes in after his supposed prey he
is in for good. , .
This is given to show that America is
the greatest country under tho sun and
that thore's no end to the field of diversification. People naturally expect to
pick cotton at this season of the year,
but if cotton plays them false it isn't
necessary to sit on a goods box and
groan. There are snakes in the country
and snakes are worth money. Go catch
them.—Honey GroveSigral.

crosscut tunnels have been run.
"No 1 drift is in 115 feet, and samples
taken along this distance give good
values in free gold. This tunnel gives
a vertical depth of over 125 feet.
"No. 2 drift is in (K) feet and shows
good ore most of the distance The
crosscut tunnel is in 50 foot, with about
80 foot more to go to tap the leod. This
is being driven to tap what is known as
the galena lead, und promises to be good
ore, judging from surface Indications.
An additional 100 feet of tunneling will
be required to crosscut another lead

THE LEDGE
has been moved from New Denver to
Nelson, bag, baggage and bull-dog. It is now published every Monday morning and circulates two
hundred miles from its home before the sun goes
down. It is one ofthe most valuable advertising
mediums in Canada, and probably has the largest
circulation of any weekly paper in British Columbia.
It will always contain racy paragraphs, breezy editorials and the latest news by wire and otherwise.
The Job Printing
Department contains something less
than $60,000 worth of material which, rendersiL
possible for our artists to produce typographical
triumphs upon short notice. Orders taken for any
kind of printing, from the dwarf-sized visiting card to
the leviathan poster. The work will equal anything
west ofthe Red River, and the price will not suspend
your breath for even a second. Send your orders by
wire, mail, or word of mouth. They will have prompt
attention, and satisfaction will reign supreme when
your gaze rests on our Job Printing. Paste this ad on
the wall for it will not appear many times. Our
neighbors need a little space to talk about the goods
they sell.

SPOKANE INTERSTATE FAIR
FOR
PRESERVING
FRUITS
At the lowest prices
compatible with quality the
headquarters in Nelson are
at
The MONTGOMERY Go.
The second annual fair in Nelson
will open on Wednesday, Sept. 28,
and continue two days. It promises to be a great success judging
from the number of entries made,
and the expressions of the public
throughout the entire country. The
exhibits will consist of Goats, Poultry, Garden, Field and Orchard
products, Flowers, Shrubs, Oil,
Gold, Silver, Lead, Copper and
other ores, etc., ett. Amusements
of various kinds will be provided
upon both days, and visitors are
Biire of a glorious time. Good weather has been ordered and a single
fare secured from all points. There
are plenty of beds, booze and beans
in the metropolis and it will be just
like home to all outsiders. The city
will be fairly wide open and it limy
even be possible to spit on the sidewalk,  without being fined   §100.
Visitors from the rural districts will
be delighted with our street cars,
but are requested to bring candles
if they wish to see our eleetrie light!
The Fair will be the greatest event
in the history of Nelson, and should
not be missed by anyone who is interested in the progress and productions of Southern British Col-
uinbirv.    No shell   games on   the
street corners will be permitted.
The thousands who read this paper
all over the country can find the
best places to buy goods in the city
by reading our advertising columns.
Nearly all the live firms of the city
carry ads in this famous jonrnal.
THE   REAL    YELLOW   FJ-U1L
An American commercial traveler in Japan writes:    "At Kobe   I
saw the yellow peril 1   My business
took me to Osaka,  to one of the
large shoe factories,  turning out
about  thirty   thousand   pairs   of
shoes per month for the army.     A
tannery is connected with it, and
the  manager,   a  conceited   little
chap, took me arouud,   and, with
great pride showed me the various
machinery used; even had the gall
to ask me   whether   we had   the
same machinery.    Fortunately for
my national pride, I did not need
the interpreter for my answer.    I
simply pointed at the little shield
on the machine—"—-Machinery
Works, Detroit,  U.  S.   A." -and

presume he understood my meaning all right. The yellow peril
alluded to consists in the fact that
these people import our machinery,
have cheap labor, and these two
things combined form, according to
my ideas, the real yellow peril. It
is not the Japanese officers drilling
Chinese hordes in the art of warfare, but Japanese brains using
our machinery and conquering the
markets of the Orient—the world's
largest dumping place at present.
Herein I see the peril which

the Kootenays and our inland in
the lines of floriculture, horticulture aud agriculture in all its diversified divisions, not forgetting our
mineral and metallic lines, which
also belong to agriculture, i.e., producing from mother earth.
Tho invitation to Nelson and the

rich full voice of our old chum
Geordio Hamilton, warbling the
song of Glasgow Fair.

and they have represented to Lord

Canada, that it fa an advantage to
take the apple* to Liverpool, where
mo«t of the buyer* are gathered together.
They claim that at Liverpool the
