Weathtf  a   large  audience of electors
gathered iu the Union hall on Saturday
evening  lasl   to  listen to  Chris   Foley
and James  VVilks discourse on the political  situation in  general  and   on the
standing ofthe independent labor party
in particular.    The hall was not finished, was poorly lighted  and the big box

������GRASS"   AND   "DEATH."
Two Classics From the Pen of the Lute
J. J. Ingalls.
The following: written on the subject ot "Grass," is said to be Ingalls'
best effort at writing;: "Grass is the
forgiveness of nature���her constant
benediction. Fields trampled with
battle, saturated with blood, torn
with the ruts of cannon, grow green
again with grass, and carnage is
forgotten. Streets abandoned by
traffic become grass-grown like rural
lanes, and are obliterated. Forests
decay, harvests perish, flowers vanish, but grass is immortal. Be-
leagured by the sullen hosts of winder
it withdraws into the impregnable
fortress of its subterranean vitality,
and emerges upon the first solicitation
ot spring. Sown by the winds, by
wandering birds, propagated by the
subtle horticulture of the elements
which are its ministers and servants,
it softens the rude outline of the
world. Its tenacious fibres hold the
earth in its place, and presents its
soluble components from washing
into the wasting sea. It invades the
solitude of deserts, climbs the inacess-
ible slopes and forbidding pinnacles
of mountains, modifies climates, and
determines the history, character and
destiny of nations. Unobtrusive and
patient, i. has immortal vigor and
aggression.   Banished from the thor
oughfare and the field, it bides its
time to return, and when vigilance is
relaxed or the dynasty hns perished,
it silently resumes the throne Irom
which it has been expelled, but
which it never abdicates. It bears
no blazonry of bloom to charm the
senses with fragrance or splendor, but
its homely hue is more enchanting
than the lily or the rose. It yields
no fruit in earth or air, ind yet,
should its harvest fail tor a single
year, famine would depopulate the
The following masterpiece is from
the oration delivered by him over the
grave ot the late Congressman James
N. Burns: "In the democracy ofthe
dead all men are at last equal. There
is neither rank nor station nor prerogative in the republic of the grave.
At this fatal threshold the philosopher
ceases to be wise and the song of the
poet is silent Dives relinquishes his
millions and Lazarus his rags. The
poor man is as rich as the richest, and
the rich as poor as the pauper. The
creditor loses his usury and the debtor
is acquitted of his obligation. There
the proud man surrenders his dignities, the politician his honors, the
worldling his pleasures, the invalid
needs no physician and the laborer
rests from his unrequited toil. Here
at last is nature's htia] decree in
equity. The wrongs of time are redressed, injustice is explained,  the
ironv of fate is refuted,  the unequal
distribution of wealth,honor,capacity,
pleasure    and    opportunity,    which
makes lite so cruel and  inexplicable
a  tragedy,  ceases in the realm ot
death.   The strongest there has no
supremacy,  and the weakest needs
no defense. The mighty captain

In the Algoma district Canada has

discovered by Robert Sayers and Benjamin Buyer who located it while pros-

Corruption will simply run riot in

government's decision to delay the polling day in these five constituencies
until after the general resul; has heen

The party reasons which shortened
the time between dissolution and poll-
in-,' .ire not akin to the public reasons
*hich might have been urged as a
rtjason for the postponement of the
struggle in the five constituencies
Simultaneous elections in all constituencies constituted a liberal principle
which the government was bound to
respect. It is a sign alike oi weakness
and wickedness when Sir Wilfred
Uurier juggles the election arrangements, so as to give party heelers a
chance to concentrate money, whisky
and every other corrupt influence on
five doubtful constituencies.

SANDON, B. C., OCTOBER 27,  igoo.
Laurier has rigged a hold-out on the electors of
Canada by deferring the election in five constituencies
until after the general result will have been announced.
If the other constituencies are no more certain than Yale-
Cariboo-Kootenay, Wilfred is drawing to a bob-tail. The
independent candidate in this constituency is gaining
strength every day and liberals and conservatives alike
recognize that they are up against the real thing. Chris
Foley has the Kootenay won already, and if the time is
extended sufficiently to permit him to reach the electors of
Yale and Cariboo Galliher and MacNeill mi_*ht better cash
in now and quit the game.
Chris Foley's Sandon speech will cost the liberal
and conservative nominees many votes. There was a
current suspicion among a certain class that the independent nominee was a wild-eyed, long-haired, lantern-jawed
anarchist who carried bombs in his clothes and talked with
a Patterson, New Jersey, accent. Confronted by a man
whose make-up was conventional, whose physiognomy
denoted nothing more dangerous than determination,
whose language was tolerant and whose argument proved
deep study and clear thot, many dropped their prejudices
and found much in common with the speaker. By making
no personal appeal for support, but standing instead on
the principles of the platform laid down, and by talking
common sense instead of personal politics, Foley placed
himself head and shoulders above other political aspirants
who have in previous contests inflicted their oratorical
efforts on the electors ofthe Slocan.
The political game in Canada is becoming a great
burlesque. Wilfred Laurier told them in Montreal that
free trade was ethically right but economically wrong ; that
he was a free trader in principle, but that free trade as a
practice was impossible. Clifford Sifton, on the other
hand, is telling the people of Manitoba that the reductions
made from the conservative tariff have transmuted it to
such an extent that we now have a revenue tariff, and that
the Laurier government has thereby fulfilled its pledges.
And he clinches this "revenue tariff" argument by stating
that any further removal of protection would be ruinous to
Canadian manufacturers.
Tupper preaches protection to the people of Toronto
and promises that a return of his party would be a safeguard against any further tariff reductions. Hugh John
has promised the people of Manitoba that a return of the
conservative party would mean the abolition of tariff on
farm machinery, binder twine and one or two other highly-
protected agricultural commodities. All of which would
seem to indicate that there is a large percentage of insincerity in the tariff arguments of politicians on both sides.
these men are branded as traitors to their party and the
political machinery and government patronage is' manipulated to throw them down. The party itself has made a
complete right-about face, has swallowed the conservative
policy, and has carried out while in power every practice it
condemned while in opposition. All that prevents the
liberal party of 1900 proving a complete alibi is Sir
Wilfred's "sunny ways." That much is left of the platform
and policy'of '96.
This change of front by the liberal party places the
conservatives in an uncomfortable predicament. Robbed
of their policy, they can find no other. Tupper as a free
trader would be a ridiculous spectacle. Tupper as a pro-
tectionist cannot consistently find fault with Laurier for
continuing a policy of protection. Sifton, as friend of the
C. P. R., cannot be seriously hurt by sJangwhanging at
the hands of the conservative party which created the
C. P. R., made it a monopoly and gave it political power.
Stories of liberal corruption and Yukon scandals come with
poor grace from compatriots of Arnold., Connley, Larkin,
McGreevey, et al. Criticisms ofthe Chinese policy of the
liberal government bear little weight when urged bv the
conservative framers of the identical policy to which objection is taken. An increase in the national debt under
liberal administration furnishes poor campaign literature to
conservatives who founded the debt.
Taken all in all, it is a monumental pantomine and
there can be only one logical outcome. Two parties with
one policy is superfluous. Evolution in politics will wipe
out one party and leave room for another great party to
shoulder popular issues, agitate, and further reform. The
conservative party will probably receive its quietus in the
next few years, or will be superseeded as non-progressionists by the liberal party. The labor party will be the opponent ofthe liberal party at the next general election.
The independent members ofthe Richardson, Cook, Puttee,
Smith and Foley order will form the nuculeus of tho next
party of reform in Canada.
As thk election approaches the prosperity crv is being
pushed to the limit by government-supporting papers all
over the country. There are journals in the province of
British Columbia hollering prosperity, that would not
know the article if they met it in the road. Manv of these
characterless rags have been engaged throughout their existence in a game of cross tag with the sheriff. Usually
the editor is poverty-stricken, the printers never saw a pay
day, and the man who prints the patent ships it C. O. P.,
but the prosperity cry goes on in loyalty to the party the
journal aims to support. It is like the parrots cry or an
echo in the woods���repeated again and again until the
meaning is lost and nothing remains but the inarticulate
jargon. Ifprosperty depended on harpings of such journals or the machinitions of politicians, Canada would be
bankrupt, Canada's prosperty is founded on the wealth of
her natural resources, and it will continue, not thru the
agency of, but in spite of prostitute journalism and politicians.
R. L. Richardson, H. H. Cook, John Charlton and
other liberals of the old regime have decided to pull away
from the new liberalism and run again on the platform on
which the party was elected in '96.    For  their consistency
A WEEK from Tuesday the electors of United States will
be asked to chose between imperialism and anti-imperialism.
There is no other issue before the people of the great republic. It is a plain question whether they shall stay at
home and perfect the freedom outlined by the declaration
of independence or whether they shall reverse the fundamental principles on which their liberty rests and themselves
become conqurers and oppressors. McKinlev stands for
love of self, the greed for gain and the passion for conquest
which embodies imperialism. Bryan stands for the true,
free unselfish loyalty which places the man above the dollar
and the state before pesonal profit. THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, OCTOBER _7

Hotc to Prospect for a Wife.
Old prospectors arc queer old fellows.
They don't sit around in groceries on
barrels and boxes and whittle, as do
old grangers in the cast when they visit
town. An old gold and silver hunter
will transact his business that caused
him to come down from his bonanza in
the hills, in the shortest possible time,
and then light his pipe and sit down on
the edge of the sidewalk in the sunshine and look wise. He is full of
mineralogical lingo, and lie is generally a hard man to fool. We overheard
one of them the other day giving a
young man of Kaslo a little matrimonial advice, as follows:
"My boy," he said, puffing vigorously at his pipe, "I sec you have on
your high togs for a ball. I don't object to balls, understand me, but I
want to give you a little advice: look
out for the women you'll meet there.
A man who tags 'round after women is
good deal like a prospector hunting for
a mine. You see a woman at a ball
and she's all frizzed up and rigged out
in silk and painted wherever her skin
shows itself. These surface croppings
look pretty fine, but if you locate on the
strength of 'em you'll get fooled every
time A woman of that kind is like a
salted mine Don't you take any stock
in her. She won't pan out. If you
want to prospect such a location, follow
up the vein a little further, and take an
assay of her talk. Three per cent,
intelligence, twenty-five of fashionable
etiquette and the rest frivolity, conceit,
ignorance and vanity, mixed up in
about equal parts. Such rock won't
pay to mill, if you finally get a patent
to the claim you'd never see a dividend
come oul oi it a long as you lived.
The assessments to keep the upper
works in repair and the lower works
from cavin' in would land you in the
poor house and some fine morning
you'd wake up und find your claim
jumped by somebody else."
Tlie old man shook the ashes out of
his Missouri meershaum, refilled it, and
"Sometimes you'll strike a plain girl
in common every-day togs. She won't
be good looking, maybe, or put on airs.
The surface indications won't show
much bul before you've prospected long
you're likelv to come on good indications that will pay to follow up. Rich
stringers of conversational vein matter
and chutes of intelligence showing up
finely the deeper you go. Pretty soon
you'll strike a well developed streak of
solid practical sense. That's the sort
of a mine lo freeze to, Drive your
stakes on it as soon as possible, and
get your patent papers, and you'll have
a regular bonanza to fall back on for
the rest of your life. If you think the
good claims are all taken up, you are
badly fooled. This district is full of
'em. I'm an old prospector and I've
travelled round a good deal. If my
time wasn't taken up I know where
there are lots of prim locations only
waiting for some practical miner to
come along and develop. A woman's
heart is a mighty curios thing. Take
it in all its dips, spurs, and angles,
ramifications and sinuosities, and it's
more of a puzzle and a myslery than the
Legal Tender mine. Some miners try
to work it- and by pure luck strike it
rich right off���in places where old experienced prospectors never 'sposed
there was pay. Gettin the title to the
property ain't the only thing; it is keeping up the proper developments, saving
values and seeing that juniper's don't
get in and monkey with your claim.
Some of these domestic mines require
an awful lot of money for machinery,
and   some of em   can be run on  about
nothing. Whenever you get one of 'cm
and find you can't run it to advantage,
the best thing you can do is to throw
up you job as superintendent and shut
down the works.

in cost after roasting lies in the amount
and  value of  chemicals used.    The
chemical   cost  in  chlorination  would
vary from 50 to 70 cents y.er ton; ia
cyaniding from '25 to 45 cents per ton.
While   this    fragmentary    statement
would appear to indicate that chlorination would be dearer, other elements,
such as coarser crushing for chlorination, and percentage of saving, would
offset such implication.   The difference
would require some space to explain,
and  as  for comparison that need no
longer be  instituted.   The ore itsalf
should determine the process, and that
can be beet learned by experience.
