Galliher Nominated.
At the convention held at Revelstoke
on Wednesday W. A. Galliher was
nominated to contest the riding in the
liberal interests. With a few exceptions the riding was well represented

Bostock but he refused to allow his
name to be considered.
He teas an Organist
A local mining man, the other day,
got word of an expert who was to strike
town looking for a chance to invest.
When the.lrain pulled in tbe mining man
sized up the crowd and decided that a
gentleman with yellow leggins and a
dignified air was his man. He got an
othodox introduction at the hotel and
proceeded to expatiated to the stranger
the resources and possibilities of the
Slocan as a place for mining investments. The stranger listened and
when the mining man invited him to
take a trip up to -some of tbe mines he
accepted with alacrity. The ��� horses
were ready and the expedition was
ahout to move up the hill when the
mining man asked, " By the way what
syndicate do you represent ? "
"Syndicate!" said the stranger "why,
1 don't represent any syndicate. I'm a
church organist on a holiday tour."
The mining man looked for a clean
place to faint in.
After Cliffe.
Aldermen Hand in their Resignation
and ask for Another Election.
At last night's meeting of the city
council the members of that body tendered their resignations, which were
a ived and filed and the city clerk
was instructed to write the Attorney
General for a fiat for a new election.
Until this is issued, which should be in
ten days, the present council will continue to hold office. 	
Howett Bostock, M. P. has made an
assignment for the benefit of his creditors.
Joseph Martin has been saved from
a cruel fate. The: bold bad Conservatives have been on their knees to Mr.
Cliffe, of the Sandon Mining Review,
(according to his own confession) imploring him " lo take the stump in
Manitoba and other points against
Fighting Joe." Everybody wondered
why the rumor was revived that Joseph
was about to flee to Dawson. Now
the reason is obvious; he could not
walk on the edge of the cliffe. But,
with wonderous magnanimity, Mr.
Cliffe now announces that business of
pressing importance prevents his accepting the office. Joe once more
breathes freely and lurns a bold front
towards the enemy.

Gas engine efficiency might be theoretically increased by complicating the
construction of the machine, but the
increased -riction therein involved
would probably in practice tend to
lower the efficiency.   The aim of gas
engine builders is to average all efficiencies and to build as simply as possible
without sacrificing essential features.
An aperture 12 inches by 12-f inches
wide, through a U-inch plank, with a
head 6 inches above the top of the
opening, will discharge 200 inches per
minute, or about 800 cubic feet.
Talc is composed of 03 5 per cent,
silica, 81.7 per cent magnesia, 4.8 per
cent, water. It is a greasy mineral with
a pearly luster, color white to apple
green. An inferior quality of coarser
structure is called soapstone.
When petroleum is talked of, a "barrel" is understood to mean 42 gallons.
A wine barrel contains 'Slh gallons and
is the standard used when capacity of
cisterns or tanks is given in barrels
Petroleum will weigh 0J pounds per
In law a "known" mine is deemed
synonymous with an operated mine
The existence of a mine is not "known"
until ore has been extracted or shown
to exist in sufficient quantity and value
to warrant extraction within the boundaries of the claim located.
One barrel unslaked lime weighing
220 pounds will make 2| barrels stiff
lime paste, equal to ,8 cubic yard. One
barrel of lime paste and three barrels
of sand will make three bairels of mortar, equal to .4 cubic yard. One barrel
of unslaked lime will make t>.7o barrels
mortar, one part lime and three parts
sand. Cement weighs 400 pounds gross
per barrel, 875 pounds net. One cubic
foot dry cement shaken down weighs
100 pounds and makes .68 cubic foot
stiff paste, when mixed with 25 to 80
per cent, water.
The height of a reservoir hank above
the highest water level is usually four
feet for low and six feet for high reservoirs. When the depth of water at the
side of the embankment does not exceed
30 feet the top of the bank may generally be four feet above the top water
level With a depth of from 80 to 50
feet the height should be live feet; and
when the depth is GC feet or over the
height should he six feet. Trautwine
suggests that the top width be two feet
plus twice the square root of the height
in feet The inner slope should be 2i
base to 1 height, and the outer slope 1J
base to 1 height.
Concerning the "power" of a steam
boiler, the word in that connection is
not correctly applied, but is used because of a custom. The rating of a
steam boiler is expressed in terms of its
ability to evaporate a certain quantity
of water into dry steam in a given time.
Simply to say that a boiler has 10square
feet of heating surface to a horse power
tells nothing and means nothing as to
its evaporative effect. A single engine,
having a single cylinder, should produce a "horse power" upon 30 lbs of
water evaporated into steam of 70 lbs.
guagc pressure; a compound engine,
having two cylinders and working at
from (j to 10 expansions, will produce a
horse power for an expenditure of 20
lbs. of water; and a triple-cylinder
engine, working at 16 to 30 expansions,
should give one horse power for every
15 lbs. of water evaporated into steam
per hour, in all of the above citations.
"What the geld reefs of Johannesburg are to the Transvaal the Wabaiih
iron beds are to Newfoundland," says
the New York Tribune. "They form
immense deposit of rich red hematite
ore, three miles long and several hundred feet wide, and showing 84,000,000
tons in sight above the water. The
beds dip downward at an angle of eight
degrees, and it iN believed that they
extend below the sea in practically
unlimited quantity, though what is now
in sight will suffice for a generation's
work. To all intents and purposes the
mine is open quarry. The ore is got at
by chopping off a surface covering of
earth and rock and then loosening the
hematite with charges of dynani'te.
"The deposits is one of nature's
freaks. It is a perfect reproduction of
a tiled floor Countless millions of
tubes of mineral are laid out with
rectangular precision, following the
trend of the stratification, and these
seem to have been cemented and forced
together by some giant machinery in
prehistoric days. Layer upon layer of
these cubes is seen in a vertical section
of the mine, and the lines of cleavage
art* as clearly defined and the general
arrangement is as perfect as a child's
box of blocks. The only difference is
that one cannot lift out one of these
mineral cubes with the lingers, hut a
charge of dynamite fixed iu a portion
of the deposit by a steam drill shatters
it for an area of many feet in every
direction, and separates the solid mass
into thousands of little bricks, each
about three inches square and as perfect
in alignment as if produced by an artist
No mining, in the customary sense, is
needed. Ihe deposit lies open to the
sun, and all the work involved is the
loosening off successive sections and
the gathering up of the fragments,
which is done by men shoveling them
into ore cars, which run on a light cable
railway to a pier on tne seashore.
"The mine occupies the northern end
of t,he island, and hard by is a i'holtore I
cove, where a pier has been built, [
whence 10,000 tons of ore may be loaded
in a day. The laden cars run down an
incline by gravity and are upset automatically, (heir contents falling into
one of ten pockets constructed in the
interior of the pier. Each pocket takes
1,000 tons, and can be emptied into a
steamer's hold in ten minutes. Two
ships a day can be loaded there when
business is brisk. The output for seven
months last year was 810,000 tons
From 1,000 to 1,500 men are employed
this year, as the output is to be trebled,
and to do that the force of employees
will have to be still further augmented.
For years the surface workings will
Continue,and even when regular underground mining is required there will
be none of the deep descents associated
with coal and copper mines.
"The ease of working and the proximity to tide-water make this deposit
one of the most advantageous from an
economic industrial point of view that
capitalists could possess. The cost of
mining the ore and putting it on ship-
I oard is but 25 cents a ton, and the
freight to Canada only 25 cents mo
where ironmasters work it in verv ������
venicntly with poorer ores
quantities of it are also absorbed ut
Philadelphia and Baltimore. Tin- prjc
at which it sells there yields the m* tiers
of the Wabana mine a profit of *i ;i t()||'
and as contracts for the delivery ()f
500,000 tons have been signed for thjs
season it is very easy to see that there
is a handsome dividend in it fur the
shrewd capitalists who control it.

evening of August 30th, the adjourned debate was
resumed on the motion moved by Smith Curtis on August
15th, as follows: "Resolved, That this house endorses
and affirms what is popularly known as the eight-hour law,
which provides that 'No person shall be employed underground in anv metalliferous mine for more than eight hours
J-a O
in every twenty-four hours,' and is opposed to any change
in said law whereby contracting out of same may be permitted, or by which the penalties for infractions of the law
shall be abrogated or suspended, but favors the enforcement
of the law as it now stands in its entirety and without anv
The motion was negatived on the following division :
Yeas :    Mclnnes,    Martin,    Smith, R.,   Garden,   Staples,
Curtis, Houston, Taylor, Brown,  Green���10.
Nays: Dunsmuir, Kidd, Hall, McPhillips, Turner,
Eberts, Smith, A. W., Ellison, Clifford, Fulton, Hayvvard,
Prentice, Wells,   McBride,   Rogers, Hunter, Mounce     17.
In commenting on the appointment of the commission
appointed to investigate the mining laws, Dunsmuir said, in
effect, that the eight-hour law was on the statutes to stay,
and that the commission would not take up the eight-hour
question. The inference to be gathered from these remarks
was that Dunsmuir and his colleagues were satisfied with
the  law.
His vote on the Curtis motion and his remarks regarding the commission are diametrically opposed to one
another. If he believes in the eight-hour law he should
have supported Curtis' resolution. If he does not he was
guilty of deception when speaking of the commission. To
put the matter plainly, Dunsmuir has lied. And, what
is still worse, by his actions he has lied to both sides, inasmuch as that he and his followers have refused to affirm the
eight-hour law, and yet with a majority of seventeen to ten
at his command he has refused to repeal ii. Which proves
beyond a doubt that Dunsmuir has not only lied but that
he is a coward. He has a majority yet is afraid to attempt
to repeal the law.
Now that the the dominion elections are in sight it
is interesting to meditate on the issues on which the campaign will be fought. The last election, as well remembered, hinged largely on the school question, a pure case of
race and religious prejudice. The other issues were the
tariff, the railway policy, and, in B. C. the Chinese question
of Oriental immigration. The liberals promised to abolish
separate schools in Manitoba, to abolish protection, to discontinue the policy of building railways with public money
for private corporations, and to take action to restrict the
Mongolian influx. The conservatives promised to maintain separate schools, to maintain the tariff, and to cotinue
the old railway policy. On the Chinese question they had
little to say. In brief, the liberals promised to do a number
of things, while the conservatives promised that they would
not do the things which the liberals said they would do.
Taking the liberals at their word, the people elected
them. They have been in power four years. Separate
schools, in  a modified  form,  are  still in  vogue.    Wilfred
Laurier's " Sunny Ways" do not alter the fact that the
separate schools are still there. The tariff is in healthy con.
dition. There has been a reduction of something like 2.08
percent., but "the last vestiage of protection" is still*in
business at the old stand. The railway policy has not been
altered, except that the liberals have given away a little
more land and money than the tories. But they had Sir
Charles Tupper's assistance in this particular, whereas the
conservatives had to carry thru their railway steals single
handed. The Oriental immigration industry has not been
badly shattered. Conveiiint |* Imperial reason " prevented
any tangible relief and the Chinese and Japs are with us yet.
Now the conservatives are going around diggiug up
four-year-old campaign literature as evidence that the lib.
erals promised to do the things which they did not do.
They say as the liberals did not abolish seperate schools,
introduce free trade, etc., they should be thrown out. And
they put the finishing touches on the spiel by promising, if
elected, to do what the liberals are doing now.
In defence of their policy the liberals claim that the
tories were wrong in saying that the liberal government
would ruin the country by introducing free trade, and doing
other outrageous things which they promised lo do. These
charges of four years ago, the liberal say, were absoluteh
unfounded. Liberal spell binders show that, whereas the
liberal government has been in power four years, tlie country is prosperous, manufacturers have not suffered In am
tampering with the tariff, that trade conditions are undisturbed, and that anyway they reduced the tariff 2.08 per
cent. The school question, they say, has been banished
from politics, and as for the railway policy, why Sir Charles
Tupper's compliments went with every contribution thai
was made to Bill, Dan and Van and if that isn't the kind
of policy vou want you can look at Blair bucking the C. 1'.
R. down in New  Brunswick.
To si/e the whole situation up it amounts to this: Ihe
tories are out. The liberals are in. The tories want the
liberals thrown out so that they can do what the liberals arc
doing. The liberals want to be retained so that they can
do what the tories would do if elected. In brief, you have
your choice between a party in power that will do nothing
and a party in opposition that will promise nothing, tins,
together with a few appeals to prejudice, constitute the sum
and substance oi political issues before the people today.

Has a real tlllfRCle ever been wrot bj
any power, QCCult nr otherwise, in ancient or modern times ? Certain seien-
lisl.s ami many others will reply with
an emphatic negation. Why? Because
the arjjus eye ol" the present time research is fast rediscovering tlie natural
means by which the tliespian rogues
and saj^es of ihe sub-palneozoic period
protluceJ ihe fantastic, wondrous, and
apparently supernal urnl results by
which they held their powerful dominations, and swayed the weaker wills,
characters, and baser minds of nescient
multitudes, for either good or evil, as
best served the moment, purpose, or
interesAt stake.
Not in all the hoary, primeval history
of China, India, Persia, Mexico, etc.,
nor in the modern Christain or Arabic
writings is there mentioned or even
alluded to, one single bizarre or unusual
act, event or occurence bordering on
the superstitious which can not be
easily and clearly explained in the near
future, and much can be comprehended
even now. The most extraordinary
and mentally extraneous freaks of the
cunningi suberous minded bul learned
priests of old -of prophets true or false
���of eujt**ean hermits���of ambiguous
cailiffs��� of exlerpating suzerains and
all facile principles were merely non-
natural to the uninstructed present,
who possessed the unenvied asufruct of
beholding empiric   philosophers al play
frequently horse play. Even the
omniscient Creator and His inspired
agents saw lit lo use only simple and
everyday forces and natural means in
ihe execution of so-called "miracles."
The voices of science in all branches
will soon till the earth with a mighty
chorus that must rend the false from
the true, making obtuse problems and
darkest phases to be understood by
Amongst recent "discoveries" the
grandest is that of electricity, which
takes little ratiocination to claim, was
likely known from the foundation of the
world, and better comprehended by the
truly knowledg-gifted ancients. Moses
and many of the prophets were dabster
electricians, but Christ as a man was
literally the Great Physician, and the
first to practically apply this natural
and heaven-sent force to the curing of
human ills. That he was an embodied
electric spirit few can contradict successfully, for he was always attended
by electric phenomena, as patently
proved. This has also been cleverly
touched upon by Miss Mari Corelli in
the creed of Casmir Helibolas, which
could advantageously studied by the
narrow-minded and aesthtical alike���
eight instances including the positive and negative dual shaped tongues,
are cited in the "Romance of Two
Worlds," but one can retreat into the
depths of rear archaical history to show
that from time immemorial electric
science was well known and appreciated. The first authentic record is 1491
B. C., when the Israelitish Ark was
constructed by Moses, who used fir-
wood imported by Phcenicians as it was
the best non-conductor amongst timber. This fir chest was sheeted in and
out with gold, thus converting it into
an expensive but most perfect and
po verful leyden jar, as gold was known
then as now to be a 50 per cent, better
conductor of Ihe fluid than copper. To
charge this battery, a fire of rich carbonic material was kept burning on top
of the ark. Carbon is of course an excellent conductor, and the particles
floating in the smoaky atmosphere brot
suTicient electricity to highly charge
this battery. But the sapient Aaron
did better than Moses, as he placed the
battery in a temple surrounded by poles
150 feel high, covered with gold, and
golden concatenations were hung from
these lo the leyden jar, making a complete connection. The general territory, we know, had an elevation ol
about 450 leet, and   this   extra 150 feet
would give an   immense supply of the
natural and mysterious fluid, especially
in Palestine, that land of electric storms.
However, the ohms and volts, and the
nicety sif working ihe machine were
Comparatively unknown, otherwise why
did Aaron's sons fool around the battery
and gel killed, unless they were ihe
merest dilettanti. But Aaron was no
sciolist in Theuegical art, for in his
death-dealing necromancing he always
removed the non-conducling camel hair
carpets. Thus the condemned varlet
remained on bare mother earth with
the too   natural result���instantaneous
tire and a painless death, i. e., a "miracle!" Solomon covered his temple
with copper, and copper pipes ran into
subterranean water tanks, and he placed Saggilal points on the roof 20 lo 24
feel high, to scare away crows, we are
calmly told, bul this won't wash ; no
crow, even a 1 ai cienl sine, requires 24
feel of a gilded spear before he feels
scared. It was simply a cute arrangement to load the roof and piping With
electricity, probably to prevent robber-,
monkeying with the copper, and doubtless served other purposes as well, tan
there exist anything new under the sun.

W e protested against the totally inadequate supply of milk and lack of proper

that more milk would be served in the
evening. Eight long hours! And then
perhaps only as much more. How
could these hungry ones survive?

thev, 'it will be well with you if you

The movement to secure a skating
rink for Sandon this winter seems to be
dropping out of sight. It is now only
about six weeks until the skating season
will be on again, and unless something
is done in the immediate future it will
be too late to get the building up this
This matter should not be allowed to
drop. The winters are long in Sandon
and, as a general rule, four or five
months good ice can be counted on.
Owing to the peculiar topographical
conditions surrounding this town there
is no possibility of any other athletic
sports, and unless the rink is built
Sandon will be without recreation of
anv kind whatever this winter.
The Trail smelter is to have a second

on Wednesday of last week,   figures
amusingly in a lost diamond incident.
A diamond earring was lost by  Mrs.
ES. B. Coe, wile of the Hev. E. B.Coe,
ol this city, who is a trustee of Rutgers
college and whose church is at No.
166 Filth avenue.   Mrs. Coo adver
tised in the New York papers for the
gem and offered "a suitable reward''
lor its return.   Soon afterward a well
dressed man called,  saying he had
found the earring and to him Mrs.
Coe described the gem.   It corrob,-r-
ated with the one the man  had,  but
the matter of reward neither liked to
bring up.    Finally Mrs. Coe said:
"Well, I suppose you wish a reward,"
"Yes, I saw in tbe paper that you
utYerod a reward." said the man with
a smile.
This puzzled  Mrs. Coe.   She did
not know how much to offer.   The
man   was   fine   looking   and   well
dressed.  Evidently unless the reward
was large he would not take it at all
Excusing herself,   Mrs.  Coe stepped
into the next room, when her husband
was enjoying the conversation,  and
asked him how much she should pay.
Dr. Coe informed  her that she had
lost the earring and that he was interestedly watching to see how she
got it back    Then in her embarrassment Mrs. Coe went to the stranger
und said:
"I don't know exactly how much
to offer, but I suppose $25 would be
sufficient, wouldn't it?"
"Oh, yes, $25 will be all right,"
repli, d the caller. Getting tlie'money
Mrs. Coe offered it to him, but he declined, to her surprise.
"Why, what's the trouble? Didn't
you say $25 would be sufiicient?"
"Yes, but I did no*:say that I would
take iv' he responded,   with amusement in every feature.   Still refusing
the money, he turned over the gem
and although Mrs. Coe still pressed
are will be entirely ot steel and the
building will be a^lu^lynrepr.^
The construction plana are  lamea
upon the idea of hav ing the plan. M
nearlv automatic as possible  and
this respect it will  Velar ahead ot
anything heretofore built
��� ���The ore will be dropped from the
ears directly into the ore bins and
will thereafter be handled by g�� a
and will not require any shoveling
until the bullion is run out ol UM
stacks.      Engineers   have   been   at
work for nearly two years upon thew
plans whioh are finally approved bj
Daly prior to his departure for Europe.
It is estimated that the saving n
labor will pay the cost ot the plant ip
less than four years The mine is
also to be improved with modern
appliances at a cost ol more than
$1000 000. When alt these improve-
ment8 are completed the company
will turn out more copper than any
other copper minein the world. -Ex,

j Letter  Proffl   Charlie   Hammond
About Ihe Arctic Gold
Nome, Alaska, Aug. 24. As Iproin-
,.| in l.-i \sii hear from me, will now
nail myself of a few spare moments
lor that purpose. Tin*: PAYSTREAK is a
rcirulai visitor, and 1 assure you a wel-
.-n-ne one : its contents are eagerly devoured b\ Bob and myself. I have
l)0W before ine a copy of July 2\si with
nantempli by Mr. Dunn which i--so
misleading thai I with to gi\e you the
facts as they are, so thai our friends
in Sandon won't lliink we have lauded
in Hades idltogether.
1 have spenl  one of   the plcasantest
summers of *nj life right herein Nome.
flie weather   has   been beautiful, with
ihi*  exception   sif   an   occasional   rain
storm.   As to the   hardships, I  don't
see as there are more to endure than in
,i;n other new mining camp, and as fur
tmvelling, von can  take .1  horse any
place within 500 miles ol   here and lind
feed for him, and team and   wagon can
l��oain place near by within a radius ol
100miles.    As to the  mineral wealth,
will-..0 thai from what I   have personally observed 1 believed this will be one
of the greatest mining camps, if nol the
greatest, yel discovered in point ol gold
production.    1 will give you an instance
of a strike made on   Nichola gulch last
July.    I'.iil, had bench claim 20 acres.
He sunk 12 feet and uncovered h 5-foot
paystreak of gravel  from  which he extracted -'4s ounces of gold  with a hand
rocker in   10 hours, and   which   since
lhat time has averaged  1-,4 ounces ol
(*old per day of   10 hours   per  rocker.
1 live acres of this 20-acre claim holdup this record  until   mined  out it will
produce something like twenty-tive million dollars.     Every claim sin Anvil and
Dexter is a paving    proposition,   altho
sevenil are idle on aCCOUnt ol litigation.
To the north Oregon  creek and   Point
Clarence   district are   showing   up big.
Io tliv south Council   City and Golden
Gate districts   are   panning well.     Dry
creek, Snow gulch and others are inak-
inj- pood  -bowings,   notwithstanding
the drj season.    Most   of   the   people
have been here only about three mouths
nnd consequently  have nol   had much
'���me to prospect.     Too   many   broke
people came lure   with the rush and as
development  was   nol   sufficiently  advanced there was  no employment for
litem,    Bul those who   came   prepared
>" hustle and with  sufficient   to establish themselves are doing   well.    As to
sickness hire, 1   am   reliably   informed
lhal there have been only some 28 cases
��l s"'-*ll   pox   here, all    sif  which w ere
contracied on the steamer coming up.
Ihere is nol now a case in the country.
I here has been some typhoid and penu-
monia, hut nol more than in other new
places which have not proper sanitation
��nd established health laws.
Well, I guess 1 have told you as
���NUcn as vou care to know sif this
WUntry. Rob and 1 are both well and
lave no loom to complain of our change
altho we often think of and long for oui
Sandon friends and relatives.

SANDON, B. Cm SEPTEMBER 15,  1900.
ARRANGEMENTS are being perfected for calling
a convention of representatives of labor organizations and of people of independent views for the purpose of
placing a candidate in the field to oppose those nominated
by the machine politicians of Yale-Cariboo-Kootenay.
The date and place of meeting has not been decided, but
the convention will probably be held in Nelson within the
next thirty days. There are several men mentioned as
possible nominees who would make good representatives,
any one of whom could be elected.
The determination of the labor element thruout the
constituency to elect a representative to the Ottawa house is
the direct outcome of the mistrust with which both the old
parties are held by the great majority of the people. That
the west has been betrayed and traduced by the professional
politicians is too painfully self-evident to even require
assertion. That neither party will promise anything while
in opposition that it will enact while in power is the
aggregate of knowledge gained thru the experience of many
years. That both parties serve the same interests in
opposition and in power is the conclusion to which an
honest electorate has been forced against its will. That
the people have been gold-bricked and thrown down at
every turn is clearly demonstrated by an analysis of the
actions of the past and the promises for the future on which
these parties seek election.
With people who hope for the arrival of better conditions, the idea of casting a ballot for a liberal or a
conservative candidate is thoroly distasteful. The public
at large has had enuf of machine politicians, and the time
to serve blue papers on the party-worshipping, monopolv-
loving satellites has arrived. It is in the hands of the
labor element to metamorphose matters in the Kootenay to
such an extent that the party line politicians will look like
a band of road agents returning from an   unsuccessful raid.
The movement is due. The time has arrived for the
people to take the control of the country's affairs from the
land pirates, charter sharks, high tariff thieves and treasury-
looting brigands, and place it where it belongs���in the
hands of the producers of the country's wealth. Direct
legislation, single tax, government ownership of franchises,
free trade, and all the other i/reat reforms for which the
masses have been struggling since the darkest ages can
only be accomplished by using the power which the ballot
places in their hands. The time to act is now. The place
is the country in which we live���the Kootenay.
According to the official year book issued by the
dominion government, the federal treasury has been held
up for $8,rt 1 per mile for all railways constructed in Canada. The provincial governments have contributed at the
rate of $1,867 per total mileage, and the municipalities at
the rate of $928 per total mileage. This makes a grand
aggregate of $11,776 in cash that the people have dug up
for every mile of railway in the dominion. When the value
of the land subsidies are calculated in, it is painfully apparent that the people have more than paid for the railways
which belong to the monopolistic corporations. We do not
notice any frequent or persistent reference  to these facts in
the slang-whanging campaign oratory of either the liberal
or the conservative spell binders. The fact of the matter is
that both parties are in the hands of the corporations they
have created, and the people will be continually cold-decked
until they take the deal away from the professional politic.
ians and take over tlie management of the game themselves,
Liberal and conservative are synonymous terms. Turn the
search-light of truth on the sophistry which constitutes their
platforms and bunco will be found between every line.
The Electoral  district   of Yale-Cariboo-Kootenay
extends from the summit of the Rockies four hundred miles
to the Pacific ocean at Jarvis inlet, and from the Liard
river in the north seven hundred miles to the international
boundary line. It embraces twelve provincial ridings,
returning thirten members to the local house, more than
a third of the entire representation of the province. At the
recent provincial general election a vote of 11,192 was cast
in these ridings out of a total vote of 27,072 for the entire
province, or between two-fifths and one half of the whole.
It is represeoted at Ottawa by one member, while the
electoral district of Victoria with a third the voting strength
has two members. There is no doubt an unfathomable
justice cached somewhere in this arrangement, but up to
the hour of going to press it has not been located.
Speaking allegorically, Hugh John   Macdonald is
the most promising political acrobat that has appeared on
the scene. He was elected to build government railways
in Manitoba and to create a thirst in that province by enforcing prohibition. He has been handling the government
layout for nearly a year, but the government railways are
still in the figurative promissory future, while the law
courts are working full shifts splitting technical hairs on a
prohibition law that would not prohibit a prohibitionist.
Now Hugh John is hippodroming under the wing ot Sir
Charles Tupper in the disguise of a government railway
advocate. How he proposes to square his pro-'I upper
affiliations with his anti-monopoly acetylene is what the
people of Manitoba are trying to figure out. The probabilities are that if that man Judas Iscariot were office-seeking
now-a-days he would land up in the poor house thru inefficiency.
A schemk of tax.noN, or rather extortion, was laid
before the Dunsmuir government during the recent session
by which it was proposed to levy four per cent on all ore
shipped out of the province for treatment. Had Mich a tax
been exacted it would have proved a body blow to tlie lead
mining industry in the Slocan. Lead smelting is now
almost exclusively in the hands of the smelter trust in l ���3-
and the C. P. R. smelter in B.C. Both are ruthless
monopolies and their rates are figured on a basis ot what
the ore will stand. Were the additional taxation placed on
ore exported the B. C. smelters would simply advance rates
to that extent and the industry would be where it is now
except that the investor in Slocan mines would be robbed
of his dividends for the benefit of a corporrtion which has
already been bonused and pampered out of all reason. "
the government did the square thing by the mining industry
it would force the smelter magnates to reduce rates to a
reasonable basis or serve a term for getting money undei
false pretenses. The lead mining industry is already under
big disadvantages, and any proposal to further burden it
will meet with a hot opposition from this camp. ������ tne
smelters already operating in B. C. cannot compete successfully with those located in U. S. points many hundred miles
away, then the sooner they shut down the better tor the
country. The mining industry should not be required to
shoulder the cost of an artificial prosperity thru the medum1
of protection iniquities.

A Meic System's Failure.
He owned a little paper,
And business was bad,
He was losing his subscribers,
And couldn't get an "ad."
So he made a bold announcement,
Saying : "Here is something now
Hereafter we will edit
As George Washington would do
Every column
Will be solemn
Truth, from an unbiased view."
And in his next week's issue
He told the simple facts.
(Some of them were more cutting
Than a double-bitted axe.)
He wrote of social doings
In anunemhellished style
And public men he mentioned
Also their stock of guile.
Very truthful
Was this youthful
Kditor, with winning smile.
Thai was the onl\ ir��ue
On the Washingtonian plan.
Also, the final labor
Of the honest-minded  man.
His paper is not running,
Since it started such a buz/ ;
But the editor was running,
Or, when last  observed, he  was
He was chasing,
He was racing
Just as Aguinaldo does.
The   Poem   Which   Made  John J.
Inqalls Famous.
Master of human destinies am I !
Fame, love and  fortune on  my footsteps wait,
Cities and fields 1   wall. ;  1 penetrate
Deserts and seas   remote, and   passing
Hovel and marl   and palace, soon or
1       late
I knock unbidden once at every gate!
If sleeping wake���if feasting rise before
I turn away.     It   is the   hour of fate,
And they who   follow me reach every
Mortals desire, and conquer  every   loe
Save death ; but   those   who   doubt  or
Condemned lo failure, penury and woe,
Seek me in vain and  uselessly implore,
1 answer nol and 1  return   no more !

There was once a politician who
went to the country saying, "j_;ive me
the axe and I will cut down that tree*"
His enemies went ahout saying "Don't
give him the axe or he will cut down
that tree." He got the axe just the
same, hut instead of cutting down the
tree he chipped olT two decimal nought
eight inches of bark. And the tree
lived and prospered.
Then did that politician go thru the
country saying, "Behold what liars
mine enemies are ! They told you 1
would cut down that tree, yet it still
lives and flourishes. What think you
of such false prophets ? Are they not
worthy of condemnation ?"

work is in progress on the north vein to

Development is in progress between the
200-foot level and the surface, opening
out ground for another stope. Work
has been continued where it was left off
for the lawsuit. The idea, save Superintendent Hall, is to block out sufficient
ore so that when shipments are started
they may he kept np continuously.
The work underground on the LeRoi
on the stoping of ore is going on in a
most extensive manlier, hut it is under
some difficulty just at present owing to
the Incapacity of the smelter to receive
its ore. In consequence unite a considerable quantity of ore Is being broken

After his recent trip through the
Kootenays, Mr. Black stock, of Toronto,
representing large Canadian and
English capital, said:
-���We are thoroughly satisfied w'th
our investments in the Kootenays The
result has heen even better than we had
anticipated." Mr Blackstoek returned
B few weeks ago from Kngland and Irs
observations on tbe condition of affairs
there from the standpoint of the mining
promoter is of considerable interest.
"We have been told that the money
market is so stringent that capital could
no( be iiad for investment in Canada."
lie savs. '-but my opinion is that v.hile
investors may be somewhat more
cautious and speculation less rife than
lj0fore the war commenced, money can
be had as readilv fur a good investment
as at anv other period. The addition
t0 the British forces in Africa ol continents from Canada has done much to
bring Canada to the attention of the
English public, and they are beginning
to realize that we have something more
tli;ul a 8now hank here While the
publ}c might have been ignorant as to
the condition of affairs here, 1 was surprised to find how familiar the mining
brokers of London were with British
Columbia They were following the
elections here closely and asked questions about the district which required
a��� accurate knowledge of the country
to answer.   The two per cent, duty on
ore was freely criticized in London."
In concluding, Mr.Blackstoek expieased
the belief that British Columbia would
get her share of the English capital
held for investment and expressed the.
hope that the legislature would avoid
legislation which would tend to discourage the How of capital in this direction.

We have become bo accustomed to
the religious lie that surroundB us that
we   do   not  notice   all  the  atrocity,
stupidity and  cruelty  with  which the
teaching of the church is permeated.
We do not notice it, but children do,
and their souls are, irreparably maimed
by this teaching-   We have but clearly
to understand what we are really do
ing, when we teach children  so-called
religion, in order to be appalled by the
dreadful   crime  thus   perpetrated.   A
pure, innocent, and as yet undeceived
and undeceiving child comes to you, to
one who has experience of life, and wbo
possesses,   or  might   possess,   all the
knowledge now accessible to mankind-
ami inquires about those fundamental
truths by which man should lie guided
in life.    And how do we answer him?
Very often, indeed, we do not answer,
but anticipate his questions, so that  he
may be provided with an incited answer
ready for tlie time when his question
arises.    But this is not the case.   The
child has a vague idea of that source of
all, that cause of bis existence, that
force in whose power be finds himself,
and he possesses the elevated idea of
this source��� indefinite and inexpressible
in words, but of which his whole being
is   conscious���natural  to  all   rational
men.    And suddenly, instead of this, he
is told that this  source is naught else
but some sort of personal, self-willed
and dreadful evil being���the Jewish
