Mr. William Millar returned recently
from a trip in bonny Scotland, where
be has been for a year enjoying life in

much when Mr. Millar prefers the west
once more.
It is reported that all the cheques
given out lately by the Brown-Alaska

The first ladies to visit our office since
the North Coast came into existence
were in on Wednesday last in the persons of Mrs. Capt. Magar and Mrs.

to learn. Ladies, there is nothing dangerous about a print shop, don't be
bashful.

Vancouver, Oct. 26.-While at the
dock on Wednesday evening last, the
Empress of China sank. The theory of
the disaster is that the sea-cock, which
takes water to the condenser, was left
open while loading, and an inrush of
water caused the vessel to sink to a
point where the water flowed through
an open deadlight in the quarters of
the Chinese crew. All night a salvage
steamer worked on the vessel, which
was raised Friduy.
Vancouver, Oct. 26.—Frank Watson
has bonded the Gold Peak group of mineral cl'timt' on Moresby island to Treth-
way Bi^s. for $10,000.

Victoria, Oct. 26.-A smelter costing $140,000 will be built at Uclucklecut
harbor in connection with the copper
mines owned by the Southern Cross
Mining company.
indeed, seems a poor arrangement,
when all. this time there has been a
trained nurse in town available, but
idle. At the next meeting of the hospital board this question will be
brought up. and no doubt trie board Will
arrange for the appointment ot government nuoses to oversee the institution,
instead of probationers paid by the
Methodist Mission Society of Canada.
Mr. M. I. Stewart, who is in town on
business, reports the Stewart group of
mineral claims at the head of Portland
Canal, bonded to a New York firm for
$220,000. Work will best arted early in
the spring on these claims by their new
owners, when a good turnover should
result, judging from the rich showings
of native silver and gold values. Mr.
Stewart intends leaving for New York
shortly.
Mr. C. W. D. Clifford, ex-M. P. for
Skeena, has arrived at Victoria from
England, accompanied by Mrs. Clifford.
Miss Clifford remained in England for
the purpose of attending school. Mr.
Clifford says that in England he found
a growing interest in British Columbia
and thinks there should be an increasing number coming to the province.
Mr. Clifford will shortly visit the north
| {Mr. Little came up on the Camosun
from the Claxton cannery for a final
treatment on his hand, which was so
badly mutilated last spring while working at the machinery in the cannery,
and which kept him in the hospital here
for the greater part of the summer.
Mr. Little said good-bye to his friends
here and then returned by the same
steamer to spend the winter in Vancouver.
Wellington Claw, one of the oldest
of the Simpseans, and first convert of
Rev. Mr. Duncan, is becoming more
famous every day. Last week the old
man pulled dewn his old shack and commenced the erection of a new dwelling
on the premises when he was stopped
by the representative of the Hudson's
Bay Co. here, who claims that the company's property extends beyond what
old man Claw considers his lawful possession. As a result the Indians are in
an uproar over the affair and it is believed the argument will be settled in
council.

I wrote an article for this paper the
other evening, and, of course, like
everything else I do, I showed it to the
old man. What an article that was!
judged by the amount of polishing it
got, it was one of the best ever written. There was a good deal of poetry
and pathos in it; just the kind that
makes your maiden aunt give that peculiar smile of hers and calls forth the
remark, "What a sweet creature he
must be!" Whenever you hear your
aunt use this expression you may be
sure her emotions have been stirred to
their deepest depths. I thought I
should have knocked the old man off his
feet by the eloquence of my pen. There
was a lot in it about the setting sun and
golden pathways and burnished waves
and shimmering light, and soft shadows
and sun-kissed peaks, something after
the style of the old masters. But what
do you think the old man Baid? He did
not snuff copiously, or use his pocket
handkerchief, Hke Uncle Toby, when
under the influence of a great excitement. My descriptive powers had not
the slightest effect upon him. The
pathos which even made my own blotting pad damp, never stirred his soul.
The golden evening and tinted peaks
were to him mere blurred patches of
earth lifted too high up to be of much
value as a townsite or a fruit ranch.
Like that silly old sailor in the poem,
"he fixed me with his eye," and said:
"What's all this stuff about, Quint-
eas?" ,'lt's about the wharf," said I.
t*There's very little wharf in it" Said
he. ' 'And sure that is just what is the,
patter," said I. ' I'Ttie littscJitoii..£»
it is Renins; less  every day."    "But
what has the Port Simpson wharf to do
with the •ettfng sun, anyhow?" "t
don't know," Baid I, "unless it is very
likely to follow, the sun's example and
sink in the west." This wa* a sore
point with the governor. The wharf
and he are practically the same age, and
every rotten plank that Is removed from
it acts on him like the pulling of a tooth
from an aching jaw. It is, indeed,
wonderful how attached we get to
things as we grow old. I think there
ought to be some legislation on this
matter. Either people should be prevented from growing old, or else their
attachment to things should be neutralized after the age of 60. The advice of
a Roman writer to a young man who
had been jilted by his sweetheart, and
was bothered by the attachment that
still swelled his youthful bosom, to the
exclusion of all else, was, "think of
her faults and try to magnify them."
Now, every right minded person, except a politician, or real estate agent,'
can see what a far sweeping reformation the above precept would produce
if faithfully put into practice. Think
what would be the effect of thinking of
the faults of our wharf without trying
to magnify them. Why, we wouldn't
sleep for weeks. Anyone can see how
an old fogy in his own frail person may
by interposing some trifling and silly
sentiment, stop the proud march of civilization and progress and keep back
even the wheels of time. One man refuses to put up a neat, servicable and
modern iron gate, and prefers to keep a
few rickety wooden bare together by
means of means of tin, tacks and
pieces of string, merely because in his
old age he likes to think how, when he
was young and ardent, long ago before
the first sprinkling of the snowa of age
fell on his brow, on a certain moonlight
evening he had leaned over the thing
that was once a gate, and taken the
face of his Jane between his hands, and
looking into her eyes, saw something
there that he has never forgotten, and
never will forget, and that venerable
wreck must stand there a mere delusion and a snare and a reproach to
the community, all on account of the
above mentioned occurrence. Would it
no,t be a wiser course for that sentimental old party to take in his gate,

PRIVATE BILL NOTICE.
THE DEPARTMENT OP MINES.
The organization of a Ministry of
Mines in the Federal government is a
matter of interest and importance to
the whole of tha Dominion, remarks the
Vancouver News-Advertiser. To no
part of Canada will it be of more importance than to British Columbia, which,
as regards the value of her mineral
productions, leads all the other provinces of the Dominion. In the past we
have not been accustomed to regard Ontario as much more than a region great
in its agriculture and with large tracts
of valuable timber. But the development of the rich mineral resources of
NeW Ontario, and the foundation of
mining camps like Cobalt in that district, have changed that, and the Premier Province of Canada is destined to
take high rank as a mineral producer.
It would be a bold presumption to say
that other sections of Canada are not
likely in the future to become known as,
having great deposits of minerals, and
there is little doubt that when explorations are made of the vast regions in
central and northern Canada further
additions will be made to the immense
wealth in minerals that this country is
already known to possess.
It is only reasonable, therefore, and a
matter of wise policy that this important source of national wealth should
have representation in the oabinet by
the creation of a Ministry of Mines.
There are some who urge that such a
department is unnecessary, because the
provinces which contain minerals and
have developed A mining industry have
Provincial mineral bureaus, the object
of Which is to foster and aid their own
local mining interests. But, while these
are useful in their particular spheres,
indeed essential if the needs and interests, of their local industries are to be
provided for and protected, there are
other matters which can only be folly
and completely'dealt with by the establishment of a nationaJ department
charged with the oversight of the mining interests of the whole country. The
complete and thorough exploitation of
the country, geological surveys and
other matters pertaining to the industry are subjects that cannot be properly
handfea"Dy tie various Provincial ad-
ministrationss. Concerning as they do,
the interests of the whole country, the
responsibility and the coat of such matters should devolve on the Federal government.
The development of our mineral resources will entail an enormous expenditure of capital, and we must look for
most of the requisite money outside of
Canada. Nothing will assist, more in securing this capital than authentic and
exhaustive information on the mineral
respujrees p|
and issued oh
tral government. Working in conjunction with the various, mining bureaus of
the Provincial governments, the Federal Department of Mines will add completeness and symmetry to the reports
issued at regular intervals, and impress
on outsiders the value ot the immense
mineral resources which exist in Canada, and ihe field for profitable enterprise that to to be found in their devel-
opmeat  V .

GARNET MINES.
Capitalists Will  lake Out   Stones for
Manufacturing Purposes.
Alaska will soon have a new
industry, the mining of garnets,
and it is the expectation of the
management of the Alaska-
Yukon-Pacific exposition, which
will be held at Seattle in 1900, to
have not only a full and inclusive
exhibit of Alaskan garnets, but
also to have a representation i n
the grounds of the mine from
which the garnets are taken.
The capitalists interested in
the new garnet mining company
are women. No man has any
part in the organization of the
company or the management. It
is their intention to start to work
soon on a large scale. The mine
is situated at what is known as
the Horn Blend Garnet ledge, at
vthe mouth of the Stikene river,
seven miles from Wrangell. The
garnets will be shipped in their
native form to Minneapolis, and
there manufactured into jewelry
of all kinds. The Alaska garnets are, it is claimed, harder
and larger than any others at
present on the market, and in
hardness, it is said, they are
very little below the standard of
the Kimberley diamond.
The Man from  Kentucky.
At the junction of Whitting-
ton and Park avenues, Hot
Springs, Ark., is situated the
magnesia spring. At this spring
the patrons are given all the
water they can drink for five
cents.
The other day a man walked
in, drank some three or four big
glasses of water and tendered
the proprietor a half-dollar in
payment It was early in the
morning and there was no change
for this money in the cash register.
Turning to a man sitting near,
the proprietor asked for change
for the money.
"Sir," replied the man, "I am
from Kentucky; if I had change
for half a dollar, do you suppose
I would be drinking water?"
It is folly for a man to marry
a woman who is a good cook unless he is willing to supply the
raw material.

AS TO OUR WHARF.
(Concluded from first page.)
decorate it with ribbons, the same color* his sweetheart wore on that momentous night, and put it on the sideboard along with the rest of the tokens
of his prowess. J think that my ides,
along with being unique, is reasonable,
and I tun going to recommend the same
course to my governor with regard to
tint wharf. Why must our lives and
property be placed in jeopardy simply
because my old man was accustomed to
"gallivant" on the wharf hood in his
voting days? Why not follow the same
fine as the man with the gate and tie it
to his watch chain and let us have
something in keeping with the times.
We want a wharf that will slope down
when you are going to the boat, and
slope down still more when you are
coming back with a heavy load on the
truck. You see. the structure itself
struggles with this idea, only it hasn't
intelligence enough to work it out properly. You will notice, when a boat
comes in, it starts to go up and down,
but the trouble is that when it goes up
it does not stay up long enough to let
you get to the other end with your load.
I heard a roan say once that he believed
it went out to sea at night. If it does,
some time or other it will forget to
come back, and what a nice pickle we
will be in then.. I am inclined to agree
with the belief of that man, for I left
a knife on the end of it one night and I
couldn't find it next morning; it must
have faHea off in a rough sea while it
was) out.
Why should we not have a wharf with
lights, and porters with brass buttons
and a conscience? In these days of refinement and progress I can't see why
we should hot have a band stand, which
would also serve as an admirable place
for members of parliament to address
their constituents from.   And above all,
there
ht to be a letter box en the
. so that letters too late for
mail nag, might he posted at
tho night.  Aft*r I had
'ordinary letters for the last
bmembeTed, about 10 o'clock
„. erenlng, that I wanted a stiff
1 frorn/ny washerman in Vancouver.
It was too late to go and rouse up the
partooeter, >at Because I wjwied a
Jwled t«Wrt. I Wrote my latter. I
could*'* op to had, est would never
;ar the boat come in, and I wanted
»p I BJii on a good .fir* and
*m&l. The'boat came in
in the morning. If a letter
Firi placed there I could have
letter, and gone to bed like, a
human being. Q.

TheJflst of October is coming near.
jiiKTthere is quite a stir in our little
town. A little excitement of this kind
is always productive of good results.
The incoming and outgoing of the mail
boats, taken as the chief amusement
end roe-cation of the inhabitants of
Port Simpson, has a tendency to become monotonous. But there is strong
evidence, however, that *ull advantage
.s to be taken of the variety offered by
the holding of tho exhibition on the
iaove date. It to understood from reliable sources that the support yielded
to this deserving undertaking from outside sources is very encouraging, and if
the Port Simpson Council will strive to
do their duty in this respect in the same
manner in which tho outside public haa
done, it will place the holding of the exhibition beyond the experimental stage.
Exhibitors are reminded that they ere
expected to assist the officials as far es
lies within their power by observing the
condWoos laid down, particularly that
of having alt exhibits in the hands of
the secretary by 2 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon.
Stele e Letter.
A short time ago the Indian trader
here made out an order on the Ames
Holden Co., of Victoria, to the amount
of something like 100 for supplies for
his store. It seems that two of the Indian Home boys saw him nuke out the
list and after the man had dropped the
letter in the box at the postofflce these
young rascals with the aid of a piece of
wire, fished out the letter and opened
it, but not finding money, as they expected, they did what they thought to
be the next best thing, and added their
names to the money order enclosed and
maiiod it sg»in. 1« the course of a few
days time Mark kuther received a letter
from Ames Holden explaining the nature of the order ana asking for advice.
The trader was about to i»ave the boys
in Question arrasted, hut the missionaries here begged the boys off with the
proriiise of giving the hoys a talking to.

WHY
Does a slow steamer, leaving Vancouver
on a Friday, and calling st every port
on the coast, including the round of the
Q. C. Islands, carry the mail for Port
Easington, Prince Rupert and Port
Simpson, when the fast Sksgway boat
leaves the next day and makes the direct run to above ports?
WHY
Does the C. P. R. change the schedule,
at the last moment, on their northern
boats, reversing their run to the Q. C.
Islands and in consequence leave a i
bunch ot ten men stranded at Port
Simpson for two weeks, with even then
a long chance of getting to their destination?
ANSWER
The old story—a cinch, working overtime.

Canoe Service on 4?opper River.
The demand for transportation on the
Skeena river haa resulted in the formation of the Copper River Canoe Express. J. B. Hartstone, supply agent
for railroad construction camps at Copper river, where 200 men are at work,
was paying Indians (100 to transport
freight up river by canoe. The Indians
were delighted—for a time. Then they
discovered they had a monopoly and
raised the price to $200. Mr. Hartstone
then went to buying canoes. At Port
Esengton the Indians upheld the canoe
trust by refusing to sell, but at Port
Simpson and Skidegate many canoes
were secured, and now there is quite a
fleet in service under his direction.—

Strange Sea Monster.
Near Tacoma, recently, a sea monster weighing 700 pounds was caught in
a net et Big harbor by Anton Berry
and his crew of six fishermen. It required their combined efforts to land
the hideous animal, which has ugly eyes,
a large, cruel mouth, two strong-looking prongs in the head, an enormous
oval body and two Unlike propellers.
The flesh resembles wax. In some ways
the monster looks like a gigantic snake,
but it is a puzzle to all the fishermen. -

Painting Extraordinary.
Painted once every six years,
the Eiffel tower claims tin average of five victims every time
the operation is performed. It
is the most dangerous job in the
world. When, after five painters had met a terrible death by
falling headlong from the structure, the directors proposed that
ropes and belts would be provided
for the men at work on the tower, the painters rebelled. It was
a matter of professional honor
and trade vanity with them. In
the repainting carried out in 1895
seven men fell, their bodies
crashed deep into the earth. In
1900 the directors endeavored to
obtain the services of men who
had previously painted the tower,
deeming that their experience
would diminish the danger of accident The men were obtained
and agreed to work for the usual
pay, provided only that they
were not required to disgrace
themselves with life-saving belts
and rigging.
