present, the utmost good fellowship
prevailed and those present enjoyed
themselves to thoir full extent as only
Scotsmen ean on an occasion of this
kind. Millwnrd's string- orchestra
furnished musio dear to the heart of
the Highlander and Lowlander, while
George M. Gunn contributed selee-
tiuns on tho bagpipes which carried
the banquetters back in memory to
thc hind if their birth. "The Camp-
hells are Oouiin'," "Illuo Hells of
Scotland," "Annie Laurie," "Comin'
thro the Rye," and other Soottish airs
excited the greatest enthusiasm.
Among those present were the
following: John Gibson, 0. V. Holt.

Red Berries, 'Din' Leg o' a Hellan
Slot, ete. The Haggis was brought
in from the kitchen by an attendant
in front ot whom came Piper Gunn,
playing ilic "Campbells are Comin'."
Capt. Duncan made a humorous address to the haggis which brought
down thc house.

Numerous other interesting telegrams were reoeived but lack of space
prevents their publication.
After tho monu had been discussed���
and it was well served by the very
efficient staff at the Phair���J.Roderick
Robertson, chairman, rose for the purpose of tousting the King. He said,
since the last anniversary the British
empire had lost its great and beloved
queen and the republic to the south of
us had lost its illustrious president.
He asked that the departed ones be
toasted standing, while the band
played "God Save the King," and
"America," whieh music served as
an anthem for both tho nations. The
toast was drunk standing while the
band solemnly chanted the soul-
stirring music. The King wbb then
toasted enthusiastically as was also
Ihe governor-general.
The President of the United
States" was the next toast and was
responded to pleasantly by (1. A.
Taokabury, who thanked the chairman for the very appropriate way in
which he bad alluded to the late
President MeKinley ln associating his
name with that of the late Queen
Viotoria. He said that the United
States and Great Britain would always be found in the forefront fighting for humanity and progress.
Geoige Kydd, the lard of the occasion sang, "Britiania RuIcb tho
Waves," iu an artistic manner and
everyone present joined in the chorus.
Mr. Kydd's effort was loudly applauded.
"The Army, Navy and Auxiliary
Forces" was responded to by Chairman Roberston, owing to the absence
of Lieuts. W. A. Galliher and N. F.
McLeod, who were to have responded,
in' a short but witty speech.
Capt. Dunjau read an exquisite
Scotch poem, "The Woe Cot in the
Dell," a verse of which is as follows:
There is a bonnie thaekct cot by  Kelvin's rushing stream,
Doon   iu   a   dell whaur birdies   sing
and poets love to dream ;
And tho'it's jist a   but-an'-ben,   nae
words o' mine can tell.
The   .'ove   that   boats   within  me for
that wee oot in the dell.
The captain   was rewarded with unstinted applause.
John Lochore rendered "The Bonny
Banks o' Loch Lominoud," in superb
style and waa so enthusiastically applauded that he was compelled to
respond with another song and gave
"The Auld Fisher."
Rev. Mr. Munroe responded to the
toast the "Land o' Cakes," He
spoke eloquently of how Scotchmen
wherever the British flag floated wore
in the asoendenoy. He said that all
felt proud of the Scots as soldiers,
statesmen, historians, essayists, theologians, poets and novelists. The
averago Scotchman he said compared
favorably with tho average of any other
nation on the earth. Mr. Munroe
was the reoiepient of much applause.
"The Lawyers and Sic Folk" was
responded to by G. V. Holt, who
made a witty and felicitious prefaoe
to his talk. In the latter part of the
speech he began to talk seriou'ly and
said that we had had a quiet year but
advised Nelson peoplo to pull together
and declared the adoption of such a
course would ameliorate conditions
and push Nelson to the front. Personally he said he would rather havo
his Balary paid by the minerB of
Kootenay than by tho grain growers
of ManitoDa or the apple raisers of
Ontario. Dr. Doherty, J. M. Lay,
Dr. McLennan and Dr. Stoddart also
responded appropriately to "Lawyers
and Sic Folk."
John Devlin rendered a parody on
"Loch Lominond," and was so
vociferously   applauded   that  he   was

Unions Making Strong Fight
to Control Next City
fatality occurred on the Josie tramway this afternoon, John Gunaer being the victim. He was run down by
a car in some unknown manner. No
one saw the accident and its cause is a
mystery. Gnnaer came from Nebraska
to work for the Le Roi mine when
that property was reopened in September. He was apparently doing some
work on the tramway when he was
caught by an ascending or descending
oar and crushed about the head so
severely as to cause death within half
an hour. Tbe ears do not cross at the
point where he was injured, and by
stepping on the other traok he oould
readily have escaped.

Rossland, Nov. 2!).���Business is
showing signs of slight improvement
bnt is yet far below normal condition.
Commercial men report that merchants are purchasing with confidence
In good sized quantities so that they
evidently expect a steady revival from
this time on. The volume of retail
trade is yet restricted and a limited
nnmlior only of the stores is profitting
by the increased expenditure at the
mines. Any goods obtained by the
new men on the hill are got on order
from the paymaster nnd the supplying
of these goods is confined to a few
only of the stores.
The Missonrians oarry themselves
with the air of victors and people on
a holiday trip. So long ns the strike
continues their positions nre secure
and they do not hesitate to flaunt
themselves in the presence of the
union men whenever they can and
show their satisfaction at the discomfiture of the strikers. Ibe union men
do not like the situation. Quite a
number of them have obtained employment in the smaller surrounding
mines but many moro have left the
city until now only a small proportion
of those who went nut in July remain.
This has had the effect on business
tliat the man who has been established
for a number of years has no advantage over the one just starling up. A
strong effort is being made to secure
an understanding with the War Eagle
and Centre Star companies to pay the
scale asked and should tli is be done
the union will have gained something
The forthcoming civic election
promises to be hotiy contested. Heretofore the labor unions have not been
united in municipal affairs and
though they may be said too have had
one direct representative in each
council that representative has not
had any marked effect on legislation.
This year it will be different. An
active canvas has been made to got on
tbe list of voters every one who is
qualified and lt is the intention to
run labor candidates in every ward.
There are no questions of first importance as an issuo in tho jontest and the
ohief matters of difference between
the parties are details of administration. Among these is the police and
license departments will come in for
the largest amount of criticism. There
is a strong feeling among the labor
unionists against the gambling houses
which have ron without hindrance,
except for a few months, for three
years. Then, too, the actions of thc
chief of police have not beon as discreet as they might have been. The
finanoial position of the city municipality 1b such that little remains for
thc next council to do Dut attend to
routine matters, so '.hat thn contests
will resolve itself down to union and
anti-union nnd at this stage it is Impossible to say which party is likely
to be successful.
Smith   Curtis   is   back to town very
much   disapproving   the   turn   things
have taken in the provinoial field. He
made a speoial trip  lo the coast  so as
to lay his views before the public   but
was unable to do so.     He   missed the
Victoria meeting and at Vancouver all
three    newspapers,   evidently   on account of influences that have not come
to   the   surface, gave Buoh a report of
his remarks that   he may   as well not
have spokeu.     De is oonvlnced that a
combination   ie   being   arranged    to
divide up the transportation   buslucBs
of the province and make   it   a   monopoly for each in its   respective territory.     Though   he will use ovory endeavor to defeat the Dunsmuir govern,
msnt.hc attempted to mako it plain at
Vancouver that If   any   deal   of  that
kind   were on   he   was   opposed to it,
and he thought there were   enough of
the members of the  some   opinion   to
defeat any scheme of that   kind.     He
is preparing a   letter   for   publication
on the subject.    _________

in Disputed Points.
Nanaimo, Nov. 20.���Mackenzie
King was successful this morning in
adjusting the Alexandra dispute.
The union is to be recognized and
stringers will be paid for at the old
rate, one dollar each. Disputed places
arc to be worked by day labor at $3 a
day until a tonnage agreement satisfactory to both sides is reached.
Manager Faulds appeared to have retired, as the negotiations were conducted by acting Manager Kesley. It
was fortunate that the strike was declared off, as tho Extension men had
decided to come out in sympathy on

the Case.
Dickinson's   .Delay    Makes
Him Responsible If
Sofia, Nov. 29.���With reference to
the reports of the death of Miss Ellon
M. Stone, the oaptive American mis
sionary, thc government holds that
after the brigands, exasperated by the
delay have murdered Miss Stone, Mr.
Dickinson, thc diplomatic agent of
the U. S. is responsible for the delay
and not the government of Bulgaria.
The latter has not interfered with Mr.
Dickinson's missionaries, nor moved
troops after Mr, Dickinson had opened communication with the brigadns.
Sofia, Nov. 29.���According to a letter dated Dubnitza, Nov. 29, Miss
Stone and Mme. Tsilka are still alive.
The letter in question further says
that at a recent meeting of tho committee held in Dubnitza it was decided not to kill the prisoners upon
any pretext whatever. Nevertheless
thc committee insisted upon the payment of tbe full amount of tho

political circles to the effect that the
United Stated should force Turkey to
pay tbo balance of the ransom and as
Boon as thc prisoners are iu safety,
force Bulgaria to punish these persons

Judge Drake Allows Only Those Connected With Lust Trial.
Victoria, Nov. 2a.���In the application as to costs in Rex. vs. Nichol,
Mr. Justice Drake this morning disallowed costs to Nichol, excepting in
the last trial. This means that Nichol
will bave to pay his own costs in the
two above trials and also the costs of
the commission taken in England the
divdeiice before which was not used
at thc trial in which thc verdict was
secured. In view of thc verdict thu
judgment Is regarded here as remarkable and It Is understood an appeal
will be taken. As a result the judgment narrows Nichul's oosts down to
about $400 whereas the bill as taxed
hy the registrar was S2,000.
The election trial of Prior and Earlo
was today postponed till Monday.
Amherst, Nov. 29.���Judge Morso today sentenced John A. McCarthy to 15
years for manslaughter. In a tight
with Chailes McAulay, the latter re
ccived a wound which proved fatal.
Colon, Nov. 29.- The terms of sur
render agreed to at yesterday's conferences held on board the U. S. gunboat Marietta at which thc commanding officer of the Marietta, of the
British cruiser Tribune and of the
Frcnoh cruiser Suehet, Lieut.-Commander McCrea, of the Machias,
Capt. Perry of the Iowa, Generals
Alban and Jefferies representing the
government of Columbia and Senor de
La Rosa wbo represented the Liberals
v: ere present are briefly as follows:
Senor de la Rosa agreed to surrender
the Liberal's soldiers now at Colon
with their arms to Capt. Perry at
noon today. Capt Perry in his turn
agreed to hand over these men and
their arms later in the day to General
Alban who in turn guaranteed life
and liberty to all men recently in
arms against the Conservative government of Colombia. The surrender of
arras was to be bona fide in every
respect. At 1.30 o'clock a large
number of marines and blue jackets
from the Iowa, the Marietta and the
Machias, landed at Colon and proceeded to the barracks.
Here tbe arms belonging to the
Liberals were taken over by the
American, British aud French consuls
at Colon, and a large concourse of
the people sympathise with the Liberals In thc surrender. The Liberal
guard patrolling Colon tins morning
appeared sad and downcast, their
behaviour, however, has all along
been most praiseworthy and it is not
an exaggeration to say that tliey
have gained the respect of a very
large portion of tho coninnii.ily and
cspeoially of the foreign elements
during their short administration or
Colon. Later in thc day Gen. Alban,
accompanied by officials of the Conservative government of Colombia,
arrived here from Panama and Senor
de la Rosa representing Gen. Domingo
Diaz, whose secretary ho is, surrendered himself and the Liberal troops
to the Conservative general in the
presence of Capt. Perry and the naval
and consular officials above mentioned.
For years past tho harbor of Colon
haa riot been so crowded as it is
today. Five men of war and several
German, Italian and British merchant
and passenger steamers as well as
other ateamers are in port. The men
of war are moored to tho wharves.
The only flag-bedecked ship in the
harbor is the Colombian Conservative
gunboat General Pinzon.
When Gen. Alban received the surrender of the Liberals the Pinzin
blew a series of noisy, quick and
irregular notes from her fog horn indicative of her joy at the proceedings.
She is now lying quite close to the
dock.    Gen. Alban is on board.
The majority of tho American
marines and blue jackets have returned to their vessels. The Suehet
has landed a detachment of marines
on the property of thc French canal
company. American marines are
still guarding tho piers and the railway station. Over 200 men entered
the city with Gen. Alban. De la Rosa
on handing Alban his sword said
"1 accept thc conditions of tho treaty
to safeguard the lives anu liberty of
my soldiers in Colon, As for my
brother and myself, we preaonally
decline to accept the conditions of the
Washington, Nov. ^9.���With thc
restoration of order and open traffic
on the Isthmus of Panama, it is expected that the navy department will
be able to withdraw loroo of the U. S.
warships now on duty in tbat quarter
aud it is cow probable that one ship
will be withdrawn on tho other side
of the Isthmus. There will bo no
haste, howover, in reducing thc naval
strength as thc officials feel that the
surrender of the Li corals en the
Isthmus may not terminate her struggle there. The countiy is so extensive
and   Iho   signs of   unrest at interior
points are so numerous that it is
thought there may be a recurrence of
trouble ns tne insurgents at other
points continue to show strength.
When the Iowa is withdrawn sho will
probably go to Talcapacano to be
docked. The Macnias, when relieved
will come uorih and be docked.
Mr. Herrau, the Colombian charge,
said tonight that Gen. Alban will
grant nothing short of a complete
capitulation by the rebel force! with
all their arras and ammunition to ihe
Colombian Liberals. But it Is understood, Mr. Ilerran added, that Gen.
Alban will give immunity to tlic per-
suns and private property of those
who lay down their arms and they
may be granted leave to depart on
parole. They will not bo permitted,
however, to reniovo any of the military supplies from Colon and their
parole will prevent their joining any
of the scattered bands of Liberals at
other points.
McGovern Loses His Tempei and Coi-
bett Soon Finishes Him.
Hartford, Conn., Nov. 38.���-Equal
ability and greater eooiheadedne.-w
won Young Corbelt, of Denver, tbe
tight from Terry McGovern, of Brooklyn, here this afternoon, Tlie fight
did not ldSt six minutes. McGovern
entered the ring confident and from
the first forced the fighting. The first
round was a sharp exchange of blows
of which McGovern got in most but
thuSe from Corbett, when tbey reached the mark, had wonderful effect,
and he scored a knockdown. In the
second round Terry again rushed tlie
fighting and had Corbett on the defensive, but the latter got in an upper
cut which sent McGovern on his back
and be took five seconds to rise. Terry
then threw off all restraints and
fought wildly, losing his temper.
McGovern forgot his defence and
Corbett feinted with his left and
brought the left to the point of Mc-
Qovern's jaw knocking him down and
Bully Curran on behalf of Jack
McClelland haB challenged Corbelt
and posted a forfeit of 8500 as part of
a side hot of $1,000, the winner to
take all.
N ew York, Nov. 29.���In sporting
circles here nothing was tallied of
more today then the defeat of Terry
McGovern by Young Corbett in Hartford yesterday afternoon. That McGovern was beaten by a two banded
rushing fighter like himself was conceded by everybody, but McGovern's
friends are evidently of opinion
that should the boys meet again Mo-
Govern will retrieve his lost laurels.
This afternoon Sam Harris, McGovern's manager, posted 92, 500 to
oinil another match, the time and
place to he at the will of Young
Iu an interview Hants said: In
order to get a return match with
Young Corbett, Terry will agree to
knock him out before the limit of 20
or 25 rounds is reached or forfeit tbe
entire purse. I don't wish to take
away any of the credit that is due to
Young Corbett over his great victory,
continued Harris, but I still insist
that the iea It of tho fight wns
duo to a fuke. I will wager as much
as $25,000 on the side that in case the
lads meet again, Terry will win.
Efforts t.i Make Amalgamated Copper

New York, Nov. 29.���Judge La-

scheme that would aid in upbuilding
the interests of Vancouver Island contends that private enterprise if It saw
that there was a profit in smelting,
would soun provide plan Is.
The Miner Is of the impression that
the Times takes the right view of the
question at issue and when capital is
certain that smelter ean bo operated
profitably on Vancouver island they
will be established und maintained
there. In support of this contention
tbe smelter of the Kootenay and Yale
arc an exemplification. Just as soon
as it was apparent that the mines of
this section produced enough ore to
iiinkf smelters profitable Ihcy weie
provided and have grown till they
constitute a large and profitable
There is too muoh of tbat spirit of
asking "someone else to oome and
take the risks so that we may share
the profits spirit" at the coast.
Smelters could long since have been
established at Victoria and Vancouver
by private enterprise and been made
profitable ventures had the people
there the proper initiative and enter
prise. Tacoma founded a smelter
nearly a decade ago und it is still in
successful operation and has been
operated largely on British Columbia
oro, considerable of which comes from
sections tributary to Victoria and
Vancouver. The smelter at Everett
which has been in existence nearly
as long as the Taooma plant, is prin
cipnlly supplied with ores from this
province lloth these smelters are on
tide water on Pnget Sound; Victoria and Vancouver are practically
located on the same body ot water
and are only a short distance apart.
Jf Taooma and Everett can operate
smelters so can Vancouver and Viotoria. The smelting plants of the
Kootenays and Yale and of Taooma
and Everett were established and have
been maintained without governmental assistance nnd why cannot Van
couver and Victoria engage in similar
enterprises without the aiil of the
Dominion or 1'rovine'al authorities?
There in a growing tendency in this
province to lean too much on governments and not depend upon ourselves,
(lovernment aid is asked for by a certain class for almost every form of
enterprise. If tills element had its
way nearly everything would lie in
the hands cf the government and we
would he cursed with the evil of
bureaucracy to the destruction of individual effort. If this idea was earned
out to the extent favored by some the
only road to proferment or to fortune
would by way of government employment. We do not believe that this
Is thn true western idea or spirit, nor
iB it thc one which should animate
the people of a province with the
boundless resources of British Columbia. The people should rely moie on
themselves and lesB on the government
and the opportunities for fortunes und
more rapid development will be
greater than if we sit Hie, waiting
for the lime when either the provincial or the Dominion government will
be In the humor to foster or to take
charge of our leading industries. All
the progress that has been made in li.
C. is largely tbe result of Individual
effort. It is true that the government
bas built roads, trails and bridges bnt
these are regular and long recognized
functions of the government. It is
true that subsidies and land giants
have been given to railways, but these
are sometimes necessary in opening
up a new country. A bounty ot $5
per ton has been granted by the
Dominion in lead mined and refined
in Canada, but no one haB had the
enterprise to take advantage of the
liberality of thc Federal authorities.
So far. however, as the opening of the
mines and the providing of reduotion
plants are concerned we believe that
are not government functions and
should not be undertaken by It, thc
Colonist to the contrary, notwithstanding.
Thc owners of a newly discovered
mica mine on tho Canoe river recently
brought out 1,200 pounds of ra!ca to
Golden to be sorted and sent east ns a
trial shipment. Out of the 1,500
pounds there will be about 300 pounds
fit for shipmont. Tho Cau��.c river
mica though slightly colored is said
to be of a very valuable kind. According to the Engineering and Mining
Journal the price of mica is as follows: (iround coarse, 3 to 4 cents per
pound ; ground line, 4 to 5 cents per
pound ; sheets 2x4 inch, 30 cents per
pound; sheets 3x3 inch, 80 cents per
pound; shells 3x4 inch. $1.50 per
pound ; sheets, 4x4 inch, $2 per pound ;
sheets, flxf! inch, 83 per pound. It
will be seen that mica increases In
value with the siz.o of the sheets. It
is capable of being cleaved into elastic plates of extreme thinness. It is
either colorless or presents some
shades of light brown, grav, smoky.
brown, black and occasionally green
or violet. Thc less color there is to it.
the better. It must be clear of Iron
and other metal itains as tho presence of these it is said interfere with
its non-conductibility. lt is used
extensively for insulating wires carrying electric currents and this use has
raised its price tn recent years. The
large sheets are used for windows iu
naval vessels. The concussion of tho
big guns destroyed glass and so tbe
windows on naval vessels aro made
with sheets of mica instead of glass.
There are only a low really valuable
deposits of mica known and there is
considerable profit in mining the
mineral where it oan be found of the
right quality and where large sheets
can be secured. There arc said to be
one or two very large deposits of mica
in northwetern British Columbia, but
thoy are not operated because their remoteness from transportation renders
it impossible to work them at a profit.
The 28th annual report of the Rio
Tinto mines of Spain is interesting to
those who keep in touch with the
production of the red metal. It has
an added interest in this section from
the fact that W. A. Carlyle, formerly
provincial mineroligist and for a
period manager of the British America
corporation mines of the Rossland
camp, is now the manager for the Rio
Tinto company's mines. The report
for the past year shows a profit of
$9,700,000 and the year's dividends
amounted to 85 per cent. During the
past five years the output of the mines
reached the stupendous total of 30,
781,000 tons of pyritic ore, and from
this product 800,000 tons of metal was
extracted. It is estimated that the
amount of copper in thc reserve heaps
will amount to 128,010 tons. This is
an increase from the figures of 1890
when the reserve was 118,051 tons
Tbe untouched deposits of ore nre said
to be sufficient to give thc mines a
life time of 25 years. About 2,000,000
tons of ore per year, or more than
twice what is extracted in British
Columbia, is taken out each year and
the estimate of tho quantity of ore
yet to be mined is bused upon this
rate of production.
In a speech delivered the other day,
Hon.Mr. Sifton stated that the Yukon
royalty on gold is to be reduced to
one-half its present amount, says the
Monetary Journal. When this is done
there ought to he less difficulty in collecting tlie royalty, tho motive for
concealment losing its force. The
miners don't -want to pay the royalty,
bnt in that thfly aro unreasonable;
the cost of governing that distant
region is considerable, and to the
government the rich gold region ought
not to be a cause of Iors. Ten per
cent, is a high royalty, especially as
it Is levied on tho grdss output, Ink ing
no account of expenses, which in err
tain conceivable eases may represent
but small profits oi none nt all. But
as thc profit or income could not lie
got at , there was no alternative but
to deal with the gross output, lt will
be interesting to see how the reduction
will act on the rovenue, whether it
will cut that in half, as the rate of
roaylty will be. This may prove a
measure of past concealment.

There is nothing like Asthmalene. It
brings instant relief, even in tbe worst
cases.   It cares when all else fails.
The Rev. O. F. WELLS, of Villa Bidge,
111., says: "Your trial bottle of Asthmalene received in good condition. I cannot
toll you how thaukf nl I feel for the good
derived from it. I was a slave, chained
with putrid sore thront and asthma for ten
years. I despaired of ever being cured. 1
saw your advertisement for the cure of
this dreadful and tormenting disease, Asthma, nnd thought you had overspoken
yourselves, but resolved to give it a trial.
To my astonishment the trial aeted like a
charm.    Send me a full size bottle.

Gentlemen : I write this testimonial from a sense of duty, having tested the
wonderful effect of your Asthmalene, for the cure of Asthma. My wife has

My wife commonced taking it about the first of November. I very soon noticed
a radical improvement. After using one bottle her Asthma has disappearfd
and sho is entirely free from all symptoms. I feel that I can consistently recommend the medicine to all who are afflioted witb this distressing disease.

is for 999 yenrs and this must obtain
the assent of the city council, and
right there will be fought out the
bsttle between British conservatism
and American daring in the building
line. While it is admitted that the
tall buildings are necessary in the
moie congested portions of thc biggest
city in the world still there is considerable opposition to tbo plan of
orcoting the proposed skysenper. The
London Times in commenting npon
the matter nays: "We are far too
slow in meeting the wants of tne enormous population ; we nre far too much
given to muddling along with timid
extensions of methods essentially antiquated. The stay-at-home Euglsh-
ni.-iti has a great deal to learn, and ns
his fine, insular superiority prevents
him fiom learning by inspection what
others are doing, the best thing possible for him is that other should come
here and do things under his nose.
Besides, tho Americans owe us a good
turn of this sort. Wc nuilt many of
their railroads and lost no small
amount of money in the operation."

owners in Scotland,his landed domain
embraces BOO.000 acres and he has
3,(100 tenants. Ho was formerly interested in the Centre Star ln Rossland nnd owns a controlling interest
in Ihe slock of tho_ West Kootenay

and was appointed to its command.
Miss BlllBon is the daughter of Mr
ord Mrs. Andrew Ellison, of Louisville, and a granddaughter of General
Charles Scott, who was a member of
Washington's staff and the third governor of Kentucky. The happy couple

Wo want a few mere workers In this
locality, at onoe, and In order to secure
your co-operation without the delay of

our full plan in this advertisement.
The work is simple, and tho Machine
Is easily operated, and with the Culdo,

Wo wlah to secure the services of families to do knitting
for us in their homes, our method Is tlie lame aa adopted
in Bnaland, We are the Introducer! of this plan ami tbe
largest   knitting   concern In Canada.
After long experience! wo havo been able to produoe an
Automatic Machine by which all kinds of iOamleiH knit-
tint; in now done by our Family Machlnd thereby enabling
anyone of ordinary Intelligence to quickly learn to do ihe
work from the ins truei ton Guide, ah wc require is that
yon use tho machine according to directions. The Machine
being made express ly for this purpose* and the operation
so   simple,   lt   cannot possibly make a mistake In ItB  work.
The great demand now Is for Bicycle Blockings, Woodmen's Socks, nnd Motormen's Mittens, and as wc are unable to supply the demand, havo taken this method of advertising  for   moro   help.
Tho largo export trade to the North-west Territories.
British Columbia, ami the British Colonies, furnishes an unlimited demand for our goods, and, with tho combined cooperation of the many families wo aro employing, together
witb the large amount of knitting we arc able to turn out,
by which we save rents, Insurance, interest on capital, etc.,
enables us to undersell any manufacturers of this class of
poods, nnd wo have sale for all tho knitting wo can have
turned out.
Thc price wo pay for finished bicycle Stockings Is $10.00
per hundred, or at the rate of luc per pair; woodmen's
socks, He, nnd motormen's mittens, 12a a pair. All other
work   ln   proportion  to size.
The machine can ho operated by any one of a family,
nnd at our prices any onergetto family should bo able to
sustain themselves comfortably, and in time bo a source of
Independent    comfort.
Our plan Is to send nut each machine to bepinners with
n sock or stocking partially knitted, and remaining in thc
machine ready to bo continued, and also enough yarn to
knit ono pair of sample socks or stockings nnd a Simple
nnd complete instruction Guide, showing bow the work is
to be done. "When tho samples have been finished nnd
returned to us satisfactory, wo send n, quantity of yarn,
whieh you knit nnd return likewise when finished. We
prepay9charges on all work one way, and our workers pay
return charges. The work, as wo have stated, is simple and
rapidly done, the machine having a capacity of ten thousand stitches a minute. Wc have many persons now In our
employ who can knit from twenty-five to thirty pairs of
socks or stockings a day, and where the time of a family
Is devoted to Iho work, you can readily sec that 115.00 or
$2(1,00  per week can be easily  earned.
We furnish our workers all the materials, yarn, etc..
free, and everything that Is necessary for tho work. We
are furnishing tho machines only for tbe exclusive use of

Onr interests are mutual, and this confidence must be established If wo nre to succeed. We guarantee fair dealing
nnd prompt payment for work, so do not nsk us to deviate
from our terms, as we cannot make a distinction with one
nnd not another: besides, wo are doing an extensive husl-
nc��s,   nnd must  be  governed  by business principles.
Tho manufactured prleo of tho machine Is 115, and positively will not be pnld to any others than those who will

Amount of work equal to the purchase price, and wish to

only a small percentage of the great
