Recently in these columns are have
attacked the 6-ow's Nam rajlwa
for bringing into this province some
thoasaadsof men from tbe cart to
work on tto railway at what must
be regarded in this province as star-
vatktn wages. A man can barely
exist on fl.50a day in British Columbia, and the moment be is thrown
|out of employment heoomes a pauper. To Introduce a scale of wages
there such as obtained on tto Crow's
Nest railway would do Irreparable
injury to tto province. Tto province caa only be truly prosperous
when the army of its workers are
receiving for their labor wsges sufficient to render them comfortable
and contented. Therefore it should
be tto interest of every eitlaen to
maintain the wages of tto workers
at the rate that has heretofore ob-
 The workers on the
railway should have ��2.50 per day
instead of fl .50 as is now being paid.
In tto ming camps of the country,
especially, should tto people who do
the work of ralsiag the mineral
wealth from the mines be assured of
a fair distribution of it among themselves. Tto prevailing wage of a
miner In this province Is fSA) a day
and where his work is constant this
is s fair wage, a wage sufficient to
render tbe miner comfortable In hb
home and to give his fstnily. if he
has one, a fair chance IS tto strug
gteofllfe. Efforts have been made
in some parts of the province to re
due* tbe prevailing rate of wages,
bat It is sattsfectory to know that so
far they have been uaearrissfnl. It
is the interest of every man who intends to make bis home In thb province to see that tto wsges of the
worker are not lowered. It b only
those who seek to mine our minersb
and carr)* out of tto country tto
wealth that those minerab produce
who can be said really to profit by
low wages. N�� xt season we hope lo
see an organic* ii<*i formed tore so
strong that any * ffbrt at wage redaction will be promptly and anereas-
fully resided. I_et it be known that
tto example set by tto Crow's Meet
railway b not to be followed Hi the
other departments of industrial life
tore, ami tbat for the future, even
in railway Gliding, men arete be
riven men's pa., and not tto
whetched dole which will make of!
our workers paupers snd of their
children social outcasts.

OOTKRXMKXT OWNERSHIP.
The tramways of the city ol Liverpool, England, hsve passed into the
possession ot tlie city corporation
which is now working them. There
sre 66 miles of tfhraways. Abont
20OOtyOOO passengers sre carried sn-
nnally, and the company hss bee.i
paying five per cent, dividend. The
corporation paid the com pany $2,*-HKV
OOty which was the par value of the
shams pins $7.50 oer share as prospective interest hr several -tear-sat
five per cent, by way of compensation
for the relinquishing' of its lease,
which wonld not have expired till the
year 1915. Tbe net profits ol the
company have been ..boat $191,0J0 a
year. The company paid the corporation a rental ot tbe same amount,
out erf" which the corporation maintained tbe lines, and paii its interest
and sinking fund charges on the cap-
its 1, the lines having been originally
constructed by the city council. List
year under municipal management
$120,420 were required tbr interest
and sinking fond, snd #601000 was
spent on maintaining tlie lilies. The
smount of surplus profit wss $25,000.
There sre people in this country
foolish enough to assert that governments should not own or operate such
public works as railroads snd tele
graphs. Our grandfathers thought
tbe same about postofftces in tbe days
when a quarter was paid to express
companies tor the conveysnee of a
letter to the nearest town, and the
world might still be in the stone-age
ot postal service were it not for tbe
genius of one man, Rowland Hill.
Every yesr we find the cordon of
railroad monopoly drawing closer,
and the Canadian public sre kept in
a state of perpetual ferment and dls
quiet, least some new railroad scheme
of tranny will- be lsunched against
them by an irresponsible monopoly.
What does it matter to us if silver
goes np or down, so long ss the cost
of living and everything that enters
Into the production of silver is in the
hands of a corporation whose fist is
law, and over whose despotic nets
snd decrees the people hsve neither
control or influence ?
The action of the city ot Liverpool
is, on a smsll scale, sn object lesson
to us intfenada. The lease granted
to tbe C.P.R. will in a few years expire and the Canadian people will
find a way to abolish a despotism
which is in every sense intolerable.
The public will buy out the monopoly
on the basis of an equitable analysis
of what the railroad received from
the puttie in iai*i, money ai-Ajqfe .
able oi-ficessions, against the actual
assets of the company. The land
which the company received finom s
corrupt parliamentary majority un
der the raslign influence nt Sir John
MacDonald will revert to the people,
instead of being exploited to enrich s
gsng of vampires who are dreaming
away their lazy existence In Euro
pean luxury.
��-_BS_-��S-W_--___WSB-___M_S__-SS��
The thorough revision of our mining
laws should demand the attention of
our next Provincial legislature. T����e
attempt st revision made at tbe last
session only helped to make confusion worse confounded as every mining msn can testify. Oar foundation
principle required b that ail mineral
land should be exem** from sale, and
the continuous employment of labor
insisted on. This would invent the
locking up of a large portion of our
mineral lands to the detriment of
trade and the interests <��f the com
mur.itv at large. In Australia and
NlCV Zealand where a half century of
mining experience lias thoroughly
edncsted the people on the needs ot
mining, mineral lands are for ever
reserved from  tale snd  no crown
grant is ever issued which would
save the best claim in the country
from being jumped if work was suspended on it fur two dsys.

the Government snd joined the ranks

being that he was not consulted In

is level. He sees the approaching
storm, and is trying to get under
shelter before the rain of defeat

Some idee W the terror of voleanoea
may he gathered bom an aceonnt of au
eruption in one of tbe Hawaiian Inlands
when the crater waa titled Iron HM to
800 feet deep with molten lava, the immense weight of which broke through
a anbterranean passage of 27 mile* ami
treadled the lea, 40 tniies distant, in two
days, flowing for three weeks and heating the water 9) mile* distant: "Roeks
melted like wax tn Ita path; forests
crackled aud blazed before ita fervent
heat *, the work* of man were to it but
as; scroll in the flames. Imagine
Niagara's str-aun, above tbe brink of
the Falls, with it- da-dcittg, whirling,
madly-raging waters, hurrying on t->
their plunks, instantaneously eon verted into lire; agory-hued river of fused
minerals; volumes of hiastnc steam
arteiog; smoke curling upward Iron ten
thousand vents, which gave utterance
to the many deep-toned muttorings and
sulleh, lonnned clamoring-*); gasee de*
tonaiinir and shrieking as Uie burst
from their hot prison-house; the
tMMveoK lurid with flame; the atmosphere dark and oppressive; the horizon
murky with vapor* and gleaminj. with
tlie reflected t-nnteet. Such waa tne
scene as the tter\ cataract, leapimr a
precipice of 50 U*H, -poured its flood
upon the ocean. The old line of coast,
a mass of eoni|Miet idurated lava, whit
ened, cracked, aud fell The waters
.recoUed and sent lorth a teraj>��-H of
spray, thev foamed and lashed ar ./mid
aad over tfie melted rock; they boiled
with the heat, aod the roar of the conflicting agencies grew fiercer and
louder. The reports of tbe exploding
gaaes were distinctly heard 2& miles
distant, and were likened to a whole
broadside of heavy artillery. Streaks
of the intense*! light. glanced like
lightuing in all directions: theootsklrts
ofthe burning lava as it fell, cooled by
the shock, were shivered into millions
of fragments, and scattered by the
strong wind iu sparkling showers far
into the com tK. Six week* later, at
the base of the hills, the water continued scalding hot, ami aent forth clouds of
steam et ertyry waah of the waves "
My taireat child, I have no song to
give you.
No lark wuhf pipe to skies ao dull
and gray,
\ et ere we part, one leason I can
give you
For every day:
*'Be 'good, sweet maid, aod let who
will he clever.
Do noWe things, not dream them,
all day lone-.
And ao make life, death, and tbe vast
forever
One grand, awe** Ming."

A aiaguler Baaeu
Tommy was told that "couple"
was singular, and to make him remember it he had to write an essay
abont "a couple." And here is what
be produced:
There waa a couple that went fish
Ing. One half of it was a man. the
second half was a woman It went
la a row boat with a pair of oars,
whieh waa also a coupto. 8o there
waa a couple of couple. Tlie woman
half of the flrat couple caught
a couple of flah. Then there waa
three couple.   The man part of the
couple ceid:
"We haa caught enough fish."
���Then ttaat down together, and
U put fan arms around it and said:
������Oh, my, doaV1
THK PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B.C., DECEMBER 25, 1897.
Hut it didn't act as if it cared
much. Just then the boat ran into
a stump and stopped. This couple
was very singular for awhile, but
finally she mid to it:
George, my dear, doesn't it think
it is time to go home?"
It looked at ita watch and said:
"Yes, dearie, it is."
Then thia couple was plural while
one of it rowed home.
So a couple is both singular and
plural just the same.

THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON. B.C., DECEMBER 25, 1897.
St�� Year's Keceiie.
By EUa Wheeler Wilkox.
I leaned down over the cavern
Time ddg Ibr tiie Old Year's tomb.
And laid my dead beside it
(For Uie sexton gavo me room).
Twas a skeleton form of sorrow
At last I buried away;
It had stalked thro* my soul's castle
And haunted nm many a day.
And then, as I per.evi dawn deeper,
I saw there vet *a> ���* spare
Por a grudge that to,��.g fis.1 ahadow'd
Ky heart s most su.��ny place;
And I cast the blighting hnrtte-L
In the grave when *t belonged,
And I said, "Then* are fates more
bitter
Than    to he   tbe  one   that is
wronged."
4tnd down on the lid of the coffin
I laid a vain regret
For a time aad a pleasure r&nished,
Tow a day whose san a as set;
And. jaat as the tomb waa closing,
I flung in a Settsh thought,
To lie in the dark and tn��wlder.
And perish 00 it oat.
And, while the bells were ringing
There midnight ehim* -. 1 said,
"Since good cndnreth fore.*er,
Let the dead Year bar/ f*a dead."
And then like a radiant anirel
Outlined in the skies abcc.
With the glad  New  Year in hia
bosom.
I saw the Spirit of Love.
Aad he spake: "It is only sorrow,
And sin, and folly tiiat dies;
Whatever was good in the Old War
In the seal of the New Year ��-*���*���
Aa yon stand on the grave of E* cu-,
Look up, for the sura are true!
Let go of the things de^tned ���
Reach ont for the ihJr<��. that are
new

which often takes place in bringing

day possible. This is particularly
nresscd on mothers who have young
babies"
*'Aad for the information of those
who have none," added a deacon, in
gentle, kindly tones, and who, being
