Important to Claim Owners
The following decision ofthe minister
of mines with regard lo the recording
of trail work as part of an assessment,
will be of interest:
With a view, therefore of establishing
an uniformity of practice, gold commissioners and mining recorders are
instructed that, provided they are satisfied that the construction of a trail is
essential to the proper development of a
claim, a free miner may be allowed lo
count the cost of the same towards his
annual assessment work, on obtaining
permission before hand from the proper
official, and subject to the inspection of
the government.

At present in the Yukon whenever a

at the major's quarters and one al the

Skagway for the Dalton trail with a

are employed.

What It Would Be
Numerous inquiries are being made
as to what would be king Edward's
name if he were a citizen of the United
States. His mother's name was Guelph
and she married a man whose family
name was Wettin. Therefore should
his most gracious majesty desire to become a citizen of the United Stales his
papers would be made out to Albert E.
Wettin.���Chicago Chronicle.
it's a Shame
Think of it���168,6^4 children under
the age of 14 are employed in the mills
and factories of the United States. In
many instances these children are little
better than slaves. They are underpaid, overworked, and deprived of the
necessities of life, God's pure sunshine,
and the joy which should attend their
age. The want of food forces the little
ones into the factory and workshop as
soon as they are able to stand. Amid
the noise of the mill they spend their
childhood hours, reach maturity, and
pass into the great beyond without
having experienced real happiness and
forever followed by tlie fear of hunger
and want.    Is this not   a condition   of

The Paystreak.
Published Every Saturday in the heart of the Richest White
Metal Camp on Earth
Operated in the interests of the Editor,
Subscription    -   -    -    -    $2.00 a year
Strictly in advance.
Specimens Shipped on Suspicion.
William MacAdams,    -   Publisher and Proprietor.
The only motive present to my
mind in writing the article published
in The Paystreak, May 17, 1902, was
what I conceived to be in the interest
of the public and I wrote it on the
impulse of the moment. In do\ng so
I used language referring to the court
in terms which were intemperate and
improper and void of due respect to
their lordship's persons and office.
The expressions were not deliberately intended to bring discredit on the
bench but were the outcome of my
strong feelings, and I deeply regret the
publication ot the article and the inexcusable and insulting language in which I
referred to the judges of the supreme
court of British Columbia and herewith
withdraw and apologize for the same.
William MacAdams.
As the price of my liberty I publish an apology. I have learned many
strange things about courts and contempts of courts recently. Many of
these I will not relate because it is not
legal. One ofthe strangest is that it
still lies within the power of certain
judges to charge and sentence anyone
who offends their dignity. These
judges are the interpreters ofthe meaning of the word dignity and they can
construe pretty much whatever they
choose into what is called "scandalizing
the court." The truth or falsity of the
statements made, it would seem, are
not necessarily the points at issue. It
is not a question of whether the statements are founded on fact or not, but
whether or no they bring the court
into contempt. This, of course, is
manifestly unjust, as a court might be
brot into contempt by relating the
truth regarding some of its members.
Supposing, for instance, that a judge
got drunk and neglected his duty; it
could be contempt of court to publish
the fact. The offending editor might
be brot before a court including the
erring judge, which could summarily
convict. No jury is necessary, and
(as in my case) the defendant may be
given no opportunity to rebut the
charges.    The sentence may be for any
length of time that the judges see fit.
Sureties may also be called for, failing
to produce which the editor may be
kept in jail for life. I know this to be
true because I myself was ordered to
get four sureties or stay in jail for the
balance of my days, and I have the
words of the chief justice to show that
this was a perfectly regular proceeding.
The department of justice at
Ottawa, so it says, is impotent to
interfere in such cases as the matter
rests entirely with the prosecuting
judges. The) are amenable to public
opinion only to the extent that it
threatens their jobs. There is no court
of appeal.
This being the case the public is
powerless. Judges may postpone
and adjourn cases as often as they
choose; the law's delays uiav break
unfortunate litigants; the rich may employ shrewd lawyers to keep a case out
of court bv whatever means they can,
yet if a newspaper denounces such
things on behalf ofthe suffering public,
unless his language is sterilized so as
not to offend the judges, the editor
may be thrown in jail for life. Thus
is tlie press muzzled.
This state of affairs calls for legislative action. If courts are to be
operated for the glorification of judges
it is just as well that the public should
understand it so. If they are to be
conducted for the speedy administration
of justice the law should be made to
conform with the principle. No law
which places a judge on a pedestal as
a paragon of purity, impervious to
human influences, to be exempt from
criticism no matter how badly he acts,
can be founded on justice. Such men
do not exist on this Jordan's wave.
The press is the guardian of public
liberties. A law which permits the
court to roast the press to its heart's
content, but restricts press comment on
the court, is manifestly unfair and
unjust. If the censure is deserved it
will not go unnoticed, just as when
you throw a stone in the dark and hear
a yelp you know it was a yellow dog
you struck. If it is uncalled for it will
revert as a boomerang on the party
publishing. History has shown that
the clerics of old who persecuted men
to establish their own purity were
worth watching. History sometimes
repeats itself.

citizens who felt that they had rather

The fact that apprehensions prevail in London that many of the peers
will not trouble to attend the coronation show today, is an indication that
the postponement has caused a number
to come to their sober senses, and see
the absurd nonsense of making such a
fuss over nothing.
One would not look for humor in
|the report of the department ot mines.
And yet this interesting document is
[not without that quality where it gives
the   following tabulated information :

���shipping, 1; number of men employed
���in these mines, below, 1; total number
|of men employed, 1.
A company is being formed in
iNew York with capitalization of
|<j$ 2 5,000,000, to purchase four of the
heading newspapers of that city. They

for half that amount, with Cliffe's

A   smelter  meeting was   held   at
[Kaslo last week, and Kootenaian says
I'only a few unimportant matters were
taken   up."    The   question    is    why
don't they take up important matters.
The time is not far distant when
there will not be a thing that we eat,
drink or wear that will not be made by
a trust. If such is the case it will not
be long until it will be a financial impossibility for the average young man
to get married.
There ought to be more money
expended on Trails around Sandon.
It appears that most of the money appropriated by the government is being
spent near Kaslo, building trails to
gopher holes, etc.
The late Mr. Harry Tracy would
have made atgood trust magnate if his
genius had been directed the right way.
Some Kaslo prospectors have
named a claim near Fry creek Tracy.

For the past four weeks this great
family journal has not been up to its
usual high standard. The reason is
that the editor has been in jail. But
now that he's out you can xpect to see
the next issue as of yore a strictly up-
to-now newspaper. He will tell you
all about jail life, etc. But then Mac
has no linch on that, as we have been
in more jails than he has, but we have
never been sent up for such a serious
crime, contempt.    No, nor never will.
In all towns where a newspaper
is published every man should advertise in it, if nothing more than a card
stating his name and the business he
is in. It does not only pay to advertise, but it lets people at a distance
know that the town in which you
reside is a prosperous community of
business men. As the seeds are sown
so the seed recompenses. Never pull
down your sign  while  in business.
One of those schoolm'ams who

And were you false, I'd still he true,
So mighty is my love for you.

Outlook Bright
The outlook for British Columbia's
mineral country is not dark; it is rather
bright and cheerful, and every year is
giving more absolute certainty to the
claim which has been made by mining
men of large experience and knowledge,
that a decade will rind this province the
largest producer of any country in the
world.���Vancouver Province.
Victoria Times
Public interest in the case of William
MacAdams, the editor  of the  Sandon
Paystreak, who was committed   to  the
jail here ior contempt of court, has been
revived by inquiries which   have  been
made by a number of legal  gentlemen
into the terms of his committment.    It
is   alleged   that   the    sentence   is   so
framed that MacAdams is really incarcerated for life if he fails to secure  the
sureties exacted by the court.    The intention ol the court  evidently  was  to
commit him for nine months, and   failing his obtaining securities to keep him
in  jail  another  year.    But   the exact
terms of committment leave a  very different impression, and  are  as   follows:
"And   this   court   doth   order   and
adjudge that the said  Win. MacAdams
for the said offence be imprisoned in the
common jail at the city of Victoria  for
the term ol nine months,  to commence
from   the  day  of the date hereof, and
after the  expiration   of lhe  said   term
that he be confined in the said jail until
he, the said W. MacAdams, shall have
given security to the satisfaction of the
registrar  of this court in  the sum of
$1000, in four sureties in  the sum  of
$250 each, conditioned   that   the  said
Wm. MacAdams will for  a  period  of
one year,  after the expiration  of the
said nine months, be of good behavior.
"And further, this court  doth  direct
that the keeper of the  common jail  at
the city of Victoria do forthwith receive
the said Wm. MacAdams into his  custody in the said jail, and there keep him
for the said term of nine  months,   and
for the said further period until the said
Wm. MacAdams shall have furnished
the security above mentioned."
