An Interesting Week in the Legislature
At Monday's meeting of the house
the main feature was Hayward's
naturalization resolution, which was
the outcome of the naturalization frauds
Cotton government. The grants to
hospitals are increased by nearly one
half. Ten thousand has been apportioned to the London office.
The grant to county court judges for
sitting as stipendiary magistrates is to
be restored and arrears to the old rate
paid since the reduction was made.
Over four hundred thousand is appropriated to roads, trails and bridges, the
practiced  on the   Fraser in  connection
with the imported Japanese  fishermen. J the Kootenays getting one-third
In bringing  down the estimates   the
The resolution read as follows
Whereas, the provisions ofthe Naturalization Act are believed to be constantly evaded by Chinese and Japanese and
Whereas, it is most desirable that
such practices should be at once stopped;
Resolved, that it is the opinion of this
bouse that an humble address be presented to His Honor the Lieutenant-
Governor, respectfully requesting him
to urge upon the Dominion government
the desirability of amending tbe provisions of the Naturalization Act in such
a manner as to compel all persons
wishing to become naturalized to be
identified hefore a judge of the supreme
or county courts personally.
In moving this resolution, Mr. Hay-
ward said that there seemed to be good
ground for believing that a large number of Japanese had been admitted as
citizens of Canada without having
shown that they were people properly
qualified. The law as it stood at present was inadequate to meet such cases.
After a long discussion in which almost
even member of lhe house was heard
the resolution was adopted by 22 to 7,
the opposition voting solidly against it.
Tatlow of Vancouver has been notified that his presence at the government caucuses is no longer required.
Following so closely on the introduction of his immigration hill, his dismissal from the councils of the Dunsmuir government has considerable significance. It would seem to indicate
that the present government does not
intend lo be in any way identified with
any anti-mongolian legislation whatsoever.
Smith Curtis moved an amendment
to the Vancouver and New Westminster
railway charter limiting the capitalization ofthe cost of the road and the
interest lo five per cent, and giving the
government power to purchase at or
after the expiration of ten years. After
a long debate on Monday and Tuesday
the amendment was voted down by a
solid vote of the government.
The estimates brot down on Tuesday
showing the proposed expenditure of
nearly two and a quarter million,
against a million and a half last year.
Salaries of government servants and
school teachers will be restored to their
former level before, the reductions ofthe
announcement was made that the
mineral tax would be increased from
one to two per cent, on tho product of
all mines shipping over 40 tons a
On Wednesday the principal evem,
in the legislature was the fight over the
report of the railway committee, which
was against granting a charter for another road thru Canadian territory to
the Alaska coast. The government
took the same view on the ground that
it was unwise to build up American
towns on territory which is in dispute
between the two countries. Mclnnis
attacked premier Dunsmuir to the effect
that his opposition was that of an in.
terested party who would benefit by an
all Canadian railway from British Columbia port into Atlin, avoiding the
border line.
The mining committee recommended
that the cost of surver of a quartz claim
be allowed as assessment, no matter
when such survey took place. It also
recommended an amendment by which
deliniquent co-owners could be dispossessed by advertisement in a local paper
instead of by action in court.
On Wednesday the finance minister
made his budget speech. He figured
a net increase of $209,000 in tbe
revenue. The change in the mineral
tax, he said, would require the metalliferous mines to pay a greater percentage on their output, but would relieve
the smaller properties.
A higher import will be placed on
timber, the tax on large incomes will
be increased and the new tax on the
coal output, would realize $70,000.
This tax is five cents a ton besides
the five cents a ton royalty. The
large increase on public works,
$300,000 tin e than last year, was, he
said, because the lasl government had
allowed public works to fall into disrepair.
As Dunsmuir is himself the heaviest
coal producer in the province the people
of H. C. now have the opportunity to
witness the present premier imposing a
tax on himself which all former governments were two weak or too vacillating to exact. The two percent mineral
tax is likely to go thru without opposition. The large producing mines of
the Kootenay have escaped with a re-
diculously low taxation and the proposition to make them pay their way now
that the industry is thoroly established,
will not be seriouly objected to.

A prospector named Wilson, of Perth,
has just unearthed a large deposit of
iron ore near Crow lake, north of Fron-
tenac. It is the largest deposit of ore
yet discovered in Frontenac county,
and active operations have begun to
sink a shaft.
A Belleville exchange says that the
output of arsenic in North Hastings
promises to he greater than in any
country in the world and that the
owners of arsenical properties will probably realize handsome profits from
this important mineral.
Work was commenced this week on
the foundation of a large addition to
the works in connection with the Belmont gold mine in Marmora and Belmont townships, owned by the Cordova
Exploration Company. The milling-
plant is to be increased by the addition
of forty stamps. This will make the
Belmont mill the largest in Ontario
Mr. D. E. K. Stewart and three other
gentlemen a few days ago purchased
the Kenefic mine in the township of
Anglesea, Addington county. The ore
from this property is mispickle, resembling very much that from the Deloro
mine, and there is a large well-defined
quartz vein, from which very fair assays
in gold and arsenic have been obtained.
The Cordowa Exploration Companv
are preparing to develop their water
power on Deer River falls, lately secured
from the Gilmour Company. This will
supply power for the mine much more
cheaply than by steam. The company
will also increase the number of stamps
in their mill. The Belmont gold mine
is being thoroughly developed and will
be one of the finest mines in Canada
within the near future.
There is a much brighter outlook at
the Malone mine, says the Herald. A
well-defined vein of mispickle has been
struck. Mr. J. W. Lindsay has returned from Nova Scotia and is taking
cbarge of the mill. Mr. Lindsay is an
experienced mill man. He was foreman
at the Deloro mill last year and, needless io say, the results at Malone have
been a great deal different under his
management. The mill is now running
steadily night and day. A large force
of hands has been added.
A meeting of the shareholders of the
Atlas Arsenic Company was held at
Deloro last week. The company have
expended over $80,000 during the last
year in development work, and have
one of the most complete plants in
Ontario, with a ten-stamp mill, compressor and everything required for the
reduction of their ores. Their output
during the month of June was $0,800.
They intend to put in some of the latest
machinery at once for the reduction of
arsenic and concentrates, and expect
that the monthly output will be greatly
At Port Arthur there has been much
development in the iron district. Several American capitalists have invested
extensively, and are sinking shafts at
Intervals on the properties. The Mikado mine at Hat Portage has doubled
its capacity, and other mines are adding
to their machinery. Several gold discoveries have been made at Hat Portage within the past few weeks, and
further iron discoveries have been made
along the north shore. Thirty two
miles of the Algoma Central railway
have been completed at the Soo.
Mr Wilson, of Kingston, who was
last week on a visit to the Sovereign
gold mine, of which he is manager,
returned home Saturday. He took with
him a gold brick weighing forty-two
ounces, valued at nearly $!iiK), which
lias been deposited at the Standard
Hank. This brick was taken from 202
tons of ore and was crushed in 193 hours
Besides the above there are eight tons
of concentrates that have to be treated
hy a different process, valued at $11 BO
a ton. The true "fissure vein" has been
discovered and it is three feet six inches
wide and can ho traced for over two
miles. The mill is now washing n test
run on the ore taken from this vein, the
results of which will he, known in two
Since operations were resumed about
twelve days ago in Mr Harrison's talc
mine, wink h;is hoen steadily pushed
ahead. A carload of thirty-three tons
of the material has been shipped to
Belleville and about -22.") tons more have
been taken up to the G. T. H. station to
be in readiness for shipment as soon as
boats and cars are available. Four
men are now employed about the mine
taking out ore and three teams draw
the stuff to the station. The talc now
being taken out is clean and white and
an idea.of its purity may be had from
the fact that in culling what is now at
the station hardly fifty pounds was
thrown out. Over the shaft a rough
but durable building has been erected,
and in it has been placed a strong hoist,
which is operated with an ordinary
horse power. The Hhaft has been Bunk
between W0 and 40 feet and is 20 or 25
feet wide. This, however, is not the
full width of the vein, as that has not
yet been ascertained. The staff have
commenced work in a drift in a northwesterly direction, and nothing but the
pure white talc is being1 taken out.
There is a great amount of
No one can possess knowledge of
every kind, but everyone oug-ht to
learn what pertains to his duty.���Confucius.
Men (as all philosophers of antiquity
have said) made God in their own
image; which is the reason why the
first Anaxagoras, as ancient as Orpheus,
expresses himself thus in his verses:
"If the birds figured to themselves a
god, he would have wings; that of
horses would run with four legs."���
With reference to some remarks of
mine on missionaries a pious correspondent asks if I do not know who was
the author of a certain command to go
forth into all the earth and preach the
gospel���the Christian gospel. No, I do
not, nor does he, but I know that it has
cost more hundreds of thousands ol
human lives than it contains words.���
Ambrose Pierce.
The peculiar evil of silencing an ex
pression of an opinion is that it is
robbing the human race, posterity as
well as the existing generation, those
who dissent from the opinion still more
than those who hold it. If the opinion
is right, they are deprived of the oppor-
tunity of changing error for truth: if
wrong, they lose, what is almost as
great a benefit, the clearer perception
and livelier impression of truth, pro*
duced by its collision with error ���John
Stuart Mill.
Why should it be taken  for granted
that the men who  devoted  their  lives
to  the   liberation   of   their   fellowmetl
should have been hissed at in the  hour
of death by the snakes of conscience,
while men who defended slavery ���practiced polygamy���justified the stealing
of babes from  the breasts of  mothers,
and lashed lhe  naked   back   of  unpaid
labor,   are   supposed   to   have  passed
smilingly from earth to the embraces ol
the angels?   Why  should   we  think
that  the  brave  thinkers,  the  invest!
gators, tin; honest men, must have  left
the crumbling shore of time in dread
and fear, while the instigators of the
massacre of St. Bartholomew;  the  inventors and users of thumb-gcrews.  of
iron boots and racks;  the  burners and
tearers of human flesh; the stealers, the
whippers, and  the enslavers of men;
the  buyers and   beaters   of   maidens,
mothers and babes;  the founders of the
Inquisition; the makers of chains;  the
bnllders of dungeons;  the calumniators
of the living, the slanderers of the dead,
and even the murderers of Jesus Christ,
all died in  the odor of sanctity,  with
white   hands   folded   upon   breasts of
peace, while the destroyers of prejudice,
the apostles of  humanity,  the soldiers
of liberty, the breakers of fetters,  the
creators of light, died  surrounded  by
the fierce fiends of God?���Inger��oll.

An Indian sage of ancient time said :
"Who knows not, and  knows not that
he knows not, is a  fool���shun  him."
Yet when I  come to   consider  what a
great poet set down  on   the same sub-
feet, 1 am puzzled to know quite where
I  am  at.    The   hard remarked   that,
"Where ignorance  is bliss, 'tis folly to
he wise !" and really, he seems to me to
give a better idea of the  case than the
Indian   philosopher.    For   instance,   a
man might   not know   that he   was a
fool, and still   be as  happy as  a honey
bee on a flower.    He  might also deem
himself immensly wise and yet be miserable.    In fact,   I entirely  agree with
Solomon   that   knowledge    increaseih
sorrow, and that  your only happy man
is he who knows the least.    For, look
ye what   a burden   learning  is.    The
educated person is a  slave to grammar
and style ; but   the man   in the street
expresses himself freely and picturesquely, and his words strike like a hammer.
And, after all, what do any of us know
���even   the most  erudite ?    Essential
truth is as dark to the man who understands the  differential  and  inferential
calculi as to the man  who only knows,
or thinks he knows, that  two  and two
make  four, and that   there are six in
half a dozen.    Both  the  learned and
the ignorant soon get  to the   circumferences of their circles.

SANDON, B. C, AUGUST 18,  igoo.
There are many indications that the dominion election
will take place in October. The voters' lists used in the
provincial election on June 9th will be used for the dominion election. As there is likely to be a revision previous to
election all who are not already on the list should have
their names placed thereon at once.
Tatlow, of Vancouver, has introduced a bill in the
legislature to regulate immigration. It provides that the
immigration into British Columbia of any person who,
when asked to do so by the officer appointed under the
act, shall fail himself to write out and sign, in the characters
of some European language, an application to the secretary
of the province of British Columbia, to the effect of the
form set out in schedule 4'B'' annexed to tho act, shall be
It was to make room for this legislation that the government sidetracked Mclnnes' labor bill. The difference
between the Tatlow bill and the Mclnnes bill is that Tatlow undertakes to provide against Mongolian immigration,
which is a matter largely in the hands of the dominion
government, whereas Mclnnes confined himself to provincial jurisdiction by legislating only regarding the employment of people already within the province.
If Tallow's bill is passed and it does not conflict with
any dominion immigration regulation it may accomplish
something toward shutting the Asiatics out.
If Mclnnes' bill were passed it could not conflict with
any dominion immigration regulation and it would assure
the early departure of the Mongolians from the province
altogether.    Mclnnes' bill was the better legislation.
The Japanese government has issued an imperial
edict which aims to prohibit the emigration of Japs to
Canada or the United States. This destroys the usefulness
of Laurier's "Imperial reason" bluff. If Wilfy wants to
stand in with the Jap government now he will have to
switch the cut and deal out law that will help the emperor
of Japan to keep the Japs at home. But that would be
exclusion.    Would  Wilfy's managers stand for that ?
Hugh John Macdonald is being travelled thru Ontario
like a prize steer at a county fair. The managers of the
conservative hippodrome are exhibiting him to the natives
as the all-around athlete who knocked out the Greenway-
Sifton-Bill-Dan-and-Van outfit and caught the temperance
vote of the hay rubes from the prairies. The fact that
Hugh John crawfished on his government railway policy-
does not figure to any great extent in his list of accomplishments, but his imitation prohibition law is given all the
prominence it will stand. It begins to look as tho a grand
stand play was being made in Manitoba to catch the votes
of the Ontario temperance fanatics.
On the eve of a dominion election, after three years
of robbery and mal-administration the dominion government has decided to revoke the ten per cent, royalty clause
and has promised to give the Yukon representation.
The administration of  the   affairs of  the Yuk
..on will
forever be a dirty spot on Canada s record. The ten per
cent, royalty was, all things considered, greater than the
tax imposed by Paul Kruger. The Britishers in the Trans.
vaal found cause for an overthrow of the Boer government
in the fact that they had no representation therein. The
Yukon ifnly this week received a promise of representation
in the dominion parliament. The Uitlanders in Johannes.
burg complained because they had no municipal govern-
ment. Dawson is still without a municipal government.
It was charged that Paul Kruger sold water and light
monopolies to private speculators who gouged the people.
The Yukon administration not only did the same thing
but it disposed of water front privileges to the N. A. T. Co,'
gave toll bridge rights to side partners of Major Walsh,'
handed over almost a complete monopoly of the timber
rights in the vicinity of Dawson to prize-fighter Slavin
and put up every other skin game that could he made to
drag an extra dollar out of the people who went to the
Yukon to open the country up. And, as tho that were not
enough, the record office was made the home of the most
rotten system of corruption that has ever come to light in
America. The justice department was made a perfect
burlesque, and the officials from [op to bottom were eon-
sorts of prostitutes, thieves, grafters and official  liars.
These things are patent to every reasonable man in
Western Canada. Everyone in this country knows that
the Yukon officials Irom Walsh and Ogilvie down to the
cheapest swamper around the record ollice were all out with
their mitt. Everyone in this country knows that the Yukon
administration was a systematic swindle from start to
finish. And yet we find politicians and newspapers east
and west whitewashing the government with all its corruption and hailing t'.ie announcement of intended reforms asa
triumph of justice lor the Yukon.
Every government in every land reflects the morals ot
the people who create it, and the people of Canada must he
superlatively dishonest and corrupt or thev would not stand
tor such dishonesty and corruption as lias been practised in
the Yukon since ever the gold fields were opened up.
The Sifton Liberal machine in Manitoba has nominated Valentine Winkler, a Mennonite, to contest the
constituency of Lisgar against R. '��.. Richardson. With
the possible exception of Frank Oliver in North Alberta,
Richardson is the only liberal in the dominion parliament
who has stood consistently by the '96 platform of the liberal
party. He is an out and out free trader, an uncompromising champion of the people's cause, and an ardent
opponent of railway subsidies and elevator monopolies.
For faithfulness to the people who elected him the Sifton
liberals will spare no effort to down him at the next election,
Ik the Labor organizations in Yale, Cariboo and
Kootenay would put up a candidate for the dominion parliament they could elect him without a struggle. Neither
liberals nor conservatives are organized for tho federal
contest and the people of this province have a hearty mistrust ofthe old party line politicians. The strength of the
labor unions was demonstrated at the recent provincial
elections, and many voters outside the organizations would
vote for a labor candidate because they recognize that from
the workingmen themselves must emanate the legfislation
which is necessary to our country's salvation.
By   a   REFERENDUM   the   labor   organizations   in  l,u'
dominion have decided  that  it is   in   tlie   best    interests ot ,
labor to enter dominion  politics and   place straight labor
candidates in the field for the forthcoming elections.    Ra'P11
smith is spoken of as the probable leader of the party. BIIXED���A   SON.

in;: institutions are proportionately
larger here than in the United States
is because our laws afford opportuni

past 60 years viewed with suspicion
any move tending to centralize "the
money power" and have steadily
ui'|*>sed any attemp directed to that

population afford opjiortunittes to use
that power to an extent that it can
be used in no other country. In the
United States population is comparatively compact, and an attempt of the
moneyed interests to exert an undue
influence in publio affairs at once
arouses the people who can take
united action to circumvent them.
But a bank magnate at Montreal or
Toronto can bring his whole tremendous power to bear at any point in
Canada, while population is so scattered and the interests ofthe various
provinces so diverse, that it is next
to impossible to secure united puhlic
action against his encroachments.
When we incorjtorated the Canadian Paci c Railway Company we
created a body which now dominates
the Parliament to which it owes its
existence. Our course in connection
with the banks seems likely to lead
to similar results. If the banks and
railways join forces, as now seems
quite likely, we might as well throw

he didn't care who shot hin front windows out it they enjoyed the performance, and if he didn't feel so tired
he would go out and hunt up the tar

Bozeman, Mont. ��� The Comstock
lode has produced more gold and silver than any other group of mines in
the United States, and for that reason
is known to the greater part ot the
people of America, and especially to
every western man who has ever
had anything to do with mining,
either directly or indirectly.
Comstock was buried in the cemetery ot Bozeman in September, 1870,
without any of the usual mourning,
pomp or display which is usually
accorded to a great discoverer or a
great man, tor who in those early
Irontier days of thirty years ago
cared what became of a broken down
miner, without a cent ot money and
no hopes or prospects, and who had
disobeyed the laws of his Maker and
taken his life with his own hand?
Comstock came to Bozeman with a
remnant of the "Big Horn Expedition" in the fall of 1870 from Cheyenne, Wyo. He was a big, strong,
dark complexioned pioneer, but when
he arrived in Bozeman was broken
both in spirits and finances. His
mind was deranged by the loss ot the
Comstock lode, which he had been
swindled out of, and he could be in
duced to talk only when some one
mentioned mines or mining. Even
to those friends with whom he came
to the little frontier settlement, he
would not speak except on rare
occasions. One day he stepped out
of tbe little log cabin he was living
in, which some years ago could be
found at the rear of Osborne's drug
store, and which, at that time, was
next to tbe county jail, and walking
to a hole made by fie builders of the
jail to get dirt to cover the root of the
county's first lock-up, he got down
into it and shot himself just abovt the
right temple with a revolver. Judge
A. D. McPherson was passing by at
the time and turned when he heard
the pistol shot in time to see Corn-
Then stock fall over.   The bole being only
or money the county of Gallatin provided the necessary coffin and he
was buried in September, 1870; in a
little plot on the hill. Some years
later distant relatives wrote concerning his demise, but on learning he
had left no effects or fortune, no
further inquiries as to how or where
he was interred were made.
Rather than let the name and last
resting place of Comstock be lost forever, there is a movement on foot to
erect a suitable monument over his
grave, to take the place of tbe little
mound of earth now covered with
weeds and grass.���The Minneapolis

The Episcopal Bishop Anderson has
a daughter of four. The other day the
family entertained some friends from
Denver. In the visiting family there
was a little girl of the same age as the
Anderson child. Her family were Presbyterians. It was proposed that the
two little girls share the same bed,
which was assented to by the children.
When bedtime came they both knelt
down to say their prayers in unison.
When little Miss Anderson was say ���
ing, "Forgive us our trespasses," she
heard her companion say, "Forgive us
our debts," and she said, sharply:
"It's'trespasses!' "
"No it ain't," said the Denver Calvin-
ist.   "It's 'debts.' "

There was a mixup immediately.
"Now it's 'trespasses,' ain't it?"
"No," said she.stoutly. "It's 'debts'"
Peace was restored, and the two consented to go on with the prayer. When
they came to the end the little Presbyterian said "Amen," giving the flat "a"
of the dissenters, while the little Episcopalian intoned "Ah-men," with the
broad sound to the first vowel.
"Amen," repeated the Presbyterian.
