Bear hunting on Wilson
The New York bear hunters who
have been hunting on Wilson creek for
a month back, left on Thursday for
their homes. They got three beautiful
grizzleys during their stay and might
have easily killed a carload of black
bears and mountain goats, but as they
are sportsmen of the real type they do
not bother with anything short ofthe
Rocky Mountain Grizzley. Shields of

district the benefit of his literary

Since its reorganization last summer
lhe Washington mine has shipped close
upon 500 tons of crude ore,and the company has now in the treasury $20,000

was held in Spokan Wednesday

Ten men were put to work on the

The property is under bond to the

The ore shipments from Sandon and
vicinity were 280 tons.
The Enterprise mill and tram is
working beautifully and the big Ten
Mile property is a steady producer of
high grade concentrates.
Unless the price of silver advances
the Molly Gibson will close down next
month, except for development purposes. About 750 tons of ore will be
shipped within the next few weeks.
The Lasi Chance will on or about the
15th. put a few men on developement

workings and should be in a position to
resume shipments at no distant date.
The American Boy is sending down
5 or 6 cars of high grade ore v. hich has
been sacked up since the rawhiding
ceased. -The output during the summer will be about 200 tons per month.
'Ruth Opening Zip.
The mill men at the Ruth have been
busy all week overhauling the concentrator machinery and getting everything into shape for a long run. At
the mine the bunk house and boarding
house has been completely overhauled
and made ready for the men. A small
force is also working in the Ruth tunnels, cleaning them out and getting
ready for work. The trail to the Hope
is progressing favorably and wijl be
completed in a few days, after which
construction ofthe upper bunk house
will be immediately commenced. Within a week the payroll will commence to
grow to respectable proportions and the
mine and mill will be started on a long
steady run.
Suppose a proposition is before a legislature to pass a bill that will give
some set of men a fortune under the
guise of doing something for the public,
which is the way such things are done,
do you think anybody would put up
money to get legislators to vote for such
a measure when the people would have
the veto powers? Nixy. They are not
given to bribery unless the goods can
be delivered. Then if there were no
private gain that could afford to pay the
bribery, do you beleive that the legislators would vote for such a measure?
Nixy. They get something out of it
for voting for bad measures. Direct
Legislation will knock the boodler.
When people vote on the laws, if they
petition for it, bad laws will not be proposed, And would be defeated if they

Casep at the Bat.
Il looked extremely rocky
For the Mudville nine that day;
The score stood two to four,
With but an inning left to play;
So when Cooney died at second,
And Burrows did the same,
A pallor wreathed thc features
Ol' the patrons of the game.
A straggling few got up to go,
Leaving there the rest,
With that hope which springs eternal
Within the human breast,
For they thot:    "If only Casey
Could get a whack at that,"
They'd put up even money now,
With Casey at the bit.
But Flynn precceded Casey,
And likwise so did Blake.
And the former was a puddin',
And the latter was a fake;
So on that Stricken multitude
A deathlike silence sat,
For there seemed but little chance
Of Casey's getting to the bat.
But Flynn let drive a "single,"
To the wonderment of all,
And the much-deepised Blakey
"Tore the cover olf the hall,"
And when tlie dust had lifted,
And they saw what had occurred,
There was Blakey safe at second,
And Flynn a-huggin third.
Then, from the gladdened multitude
Went up a joyous yell,
It rumbled in the mountain tops,
It rattled down the dell;
It struck upon the hillside
And rebounded on the Hat.
For Casey, mighty Casey,
Was advancing to the bat.
There was ease in Casey's manner
As he stepped into his place,
There was pride in Casey's bearing
And a smile on Casey's face;
And when responding to the cheers,
Ik- lightly doffed his hat,
No  stranger in the crowd could doubt
Twas Casey at the bat.
Ten thousand eyes were on him
As he rubbed his hands with dirt,
Five thousand toungs applauded
When he rubbed them on his shirt;
Then when the writhing pitcher
Ground the ball into his hip,
Defiance gleamed in Casey's eye,
A sneer curled Casey's lip.
And now the leather-covered sphere
Came hurtling thru the air,
An' Casey stood a-watchin' it
In mighty grandeur there;
Close by the sturdy batsman
The ball unheeded sped;
"That ain't my style!" said Casey;
"Strike one!" the umpire said.
From the  benches, black  with people,
There went up a muffled roar
Like the beating of storm waves
On a stern and distant shore.
"Kill him!    Kill the umpire!"
Shouted some one on the stand
And it's likely they'd have  killed  him,
Had not Casey raised his hand.

With a smile of Christian charity
Great Casey's visage shone;
He stilled the rising tumult,
He made the game go on;
He signalled to the pitcher,
And once more the spheroid flew,
Bul Casey still ignored it,
And the umpire said "Strike two!"
"Fraud!" cried the maddened thousands
And the echo answered "Fraud!"
But one scornful look from Casey
And lhe audience was awed;
They saw his face grow stern and cold,
They saw his musles strain,
And they knew that Casey
Wouldn't let the ball go by again.
The sneer is gone from Casey's lips,
His teeth are clenched in hate;
He pounds with cruel vengeance
His bat upon the plate;
And now the pitcher holds the ball,
And now he lets it go,
And now the air is shattered
By the force of Casey's blow.
Oh, somewhere  in this favored land
The sun is shining bright.

And somewhere hearts are light;
And somewhere men are laughing
And somewhere children shout,

SANDON, JUNE 7�� I9��2-
It is a low down trick that the
snow is playing on the Slocan hills this
summer. _^:	
Bear hunting on Wilson creek is
likely to become the New York fashion
but most of the citizens of these parts
are willing to give the New Yorkers
an absolute monopoly. Not many
people in the Slocan have lost any
Some of those Spokesman-Review
prospectors who have been on the
Thunder Mountain trail for the last
three months ought to arrive there some
time in the near future. Otherwise
some skeptic will be cruel enuf to insinuate that they are trying to catch a
raise all of its revenue on land. If the
same law were in force in B. C. the
business men of Sandon would not be
compelled to pay out all their profits
for ground rent. Under single tax no
man could afford to retain a dozen lots
vacant in order that he might collect
enuf ground rent off one lot to pay
interest on the dozen. Sandon needs
single tax.
After demonstrating to the world
that they were good fighters and hard
loosers,  the   Boers  have   finally  laid
down their arms and decided to go back
on the farm.    Thousands of ignorant,
prejudiced   Dutchmen  and  thousands
more of foolish   Britishers have  fallen
victims  in the  capitalists  war  which
has just  closed,   but  their  valor  has
added  nothing to Boer  dominion and
less to  British honor.    The  survivors
receive the  empty plaudits  of the empire,   while  the  sheeneys   proceed   to
rake in the sheckles.
unknown until Ontario's people raise
gumption  enuf to  require something
off a politician except beautiful words.
Then,   and  not till  then,   will it quit
being a fossilized, moss-grown, creed-
ridden,   antiquated,   agricultural back
number and will become an up-to-date
country which will not ship its sons and
and  daughters   across  the   border in
million  lots to  look for a job in competition  with the   Dago and  the Finlander.
And now John D. Rockefeller has
insomnia added to his list of troubles.
Poor John D. We are certainly sorry
for him, and just to demonstrate how
anxious we are to help him out, we are
willing to put in with him, and work
as a team. He can do the financing
and we will do the sleeping.
If the coroner's inquest which is
investigating the recent explosion fails
to sift to  the last grain every particle
of information which may   throw light
on the  cause of the  explosion, it  fails
to do its duty.    If the   inquest  shows
that  the  insenate   greed   of the  coal
company directors  caused the death of
150 miners, the  directors  should   pay
the legal penalty for cold blooded murder.    Exploiters who must water their
stock by  scores of millions to give its
dividends  an  appearance  of modesty
are  ghouls  and  fiends if they  fail   to
take every precaution for the safety of
their men.
If somebody don't swipe that crown
to salt a diamond mine with, the British public will succeed in decorating
King Edward's cranium with it on or
about the 26th of June. Jim Dunsmuir is requested to take notice and
check his turkey thru by the most
direct route. Otherwise the game will
be closed before he gets there.
J. Israel Tarte says that Pierp
Morgan may buy the Canadian Pacific
but  that Canada  will  still   have  the
government,   which   is   the   supreme
power.    Judging from where we sit it
would seem  that Tarte has this thing
put up wrong.    If surface  indications
prove anything the  Canadian government has been  an asset of the  Canadian   Pacific since 1876, and  would be
included in the  purchase  as an unass-
essed franchise.

Now watch the puny, warp souled
theologians  as  they each thank their
denominational   God that he has hrot
this  awful  war to a successful close.
Watch them as they turn   their eyes to
the  planets  and jerk  out  stereotyped
baritone phrases of exultion of a diety
whom they say has sanctioned the war
and   vanquished   the   enemy.     Then
think how disappointed the Boers must
be in their  God,  who  stood  out and
permitted them to get  licked.   Think
also  of the  egotism  of these men in
imagining  that an almighty God, bio
enuf to hold the world in the hollow of
his hand, should value their  supplications.    Think  again of the  fallacy oi
supposing that the great God  of love,
who has permitted these   thousands of
people  to  wantonly   kill   each  other,
would  arrest the Boer  bullets in their
flight and   save the  British   legions in
answer to their prayers.    Think ofthe
horrible   hypocracy     which    prompts
these men   in the   name of a christian
God to pray that their enemies may be
tortured  and killed, that   they may be
brot into subjection of the king defender of the faith.    Think how   preposterous  it is for  followers of the meek
and lowly Jesus, who preached nothing
but the simple brotherhood oi man, to
imagine   that   any   people   are  their
enemies and must be killed.    Remember that   while  the   British   pray, the
Boers  also are praying, each that the
other   will   meet  a  horrible death in
battle; remember that Briton and Boer
are   both   praying  to the  same  God.
Then  think for a moment of the confusion that would   follow if the prayers
of both were answered.    Think ot the
dead   immortal cinch that either army
would have if God were on  their side.
Think of what  would  happen  on this
old     earth    if   God    were    playing
favorites,     as    the     preachers    presume    to    believe.     Then    think of
the  audacity  of these   professional religionists who will stand up in cathedrals,   churches   and   meeting   houses
thruout the world and chant and pray
to  their  mythical  diety,   with   whom
they  claim to hold preference stock -
and all  because of a natural  sequence
of events,   because  the  weaker   have
fallen and the fittest have survived. the Papstreak, Sandon, B. C, Sfune 7
Those dollar-grasping Lardean
merchants'who drove Pettipiece out of
Ferguson and tried to run Langstaff
out of Trout Lake because they told
the truth about the McCrossan gang,
had better bury the hatchet with the
Topic man and coax Pettipiece back
onto the Eagle. They are a bright
team of newspaper boys who have
spent the best years of their lives in an
honest endeavor to build \ip the great
Lardeau camp, and they are worth
more to the country in a minute than
McCrossan with his hypocritical
Methodist praying wild cat companies
and silent smelters could be in a generation. The Lardeau merchants will
live to rue their bargain, and if McCrossan hands it to them as strong as
he is handing it to the widows and
orphans of Minnesota they are only
getting what is coming to them. Only
this and nothing more.
Mark Hanna is not going to permit Teddy Rooseveldt to get away
with that 1904 nomination if he can
help it. Mark the Tyrant, backed by
the merger and the trust, has led the
Republican party around with a lariet
of monopoly until the land of the free
has become a seething mass of political
corruption and social unrest. But now
comes Rooseveldt, with honesty enuf
inside his skin to see the light, and he
threatens to wreck the oligarchy and
turn the party loose. To head off the
Rough Rider, he of the apostolic name
has inaugurated a presidential boom
for the man whom he considers best
fitted for the highest office in the gift
of the Republic ��� namely himself.
Mark has the money that makes the
machine rotate, but Teddy has the
sympathy ofthe great American people
behind him, and if the trail to the
White House gate leads over Hanna's
political grave Rooseveldt will tread it
without a sigh or a tear.
The One Big Question, is the
title of an article clipped trom the Toronto Telegram and will be found on
page 7 of this issue, is about as hot
a roast as ever an independent paper
gave the people of Canada, legislators
included. The beauty of it is, that it is
true and sorely needed. It seems to
be an accomplished fact in Canada that
nothing in the railway line can be done
without a bonus, land grant, or subsidy, and it is not altogether that the
money has been freely given, but in
the totally irresponsible manner it has
been bestowed on the promoters. The
people have furnished the large share
of the cash used to build the lines, the
promoters have treated it as capital,
built the lines and charged the people
interest   on   the   investment  of their
money in the form of high rates. Does
anything ever occur like this in private
business management. And the infamous and insane business goes
merrily on and will go on until the
next generation stops the folly. The
buying ofthe C. P. R. stocks by Canadian capitalists who hold the stock in
trust for American interests as a blind
to the Canadian people will soon be
unearthed, and we will have a pretty
spectacle; our enormous burden of
expenditure gone to serve the interests
of our southern neighbor. Brother
Robinson has started on a righteous
crusade. A campaign of education is
what is needed-to open the eyes ofthe
public on this One Big Question.
One of the greatest evils in Canada
today is that the people are almost
totally ignorant of the transportation

To recount what the Swiss have done
by Direct Legislation:
They  have  made it easy at any time
to alter  their cantonal and federal constitutions���that is, to change, even radically,  the organization of societv, the
social contract, and Thus* to   permit a
peaceful  revolution at   the  will ofthe
majority.    They  have  as well cleared
from the of majority rule every obstacle
privilege of ruler, fetter of ancient law,
power of legislator.    They   have simplified the structure of government, held
their officals as servants, rendered bureaucracy   impossible,   converted   their
represntatives lo simple committeemen,
and  shown  the parliamentary  system
not    essential   to   lawmaking.    They
have written   their laws in language so
plain that a layman may be judge in
the highest court.    They have forestalled monopolies    improved and reduced
taxation, avoided incuring heavy public
debts, and made  a better distribution!
of their land than any other European
country.    They have practically given
home   rule   in   local   affairs   to every
community.    They have calmed disturbing   political   elements���the  press  is
purified,   the  politician   disarmed,   the
civil  service  well   regulated.    Hurtful
partisanship  is passing   away.    Since
the people as a whole will never willingly surrender their sovereignty, reactionary  movement   is possible only in case
the nation should go backward.    But
the way is open forward.    Scocial ideals
may be realized in act and institution.
Even now liberty loving Swiss citizens
can  discern in the  future a freedom in
which   every   individual���independent,
possessed of rights in nature's resources
and in command of the fruits of his toil
may,  at his will, on the sole condition
that he respect the the like aim of other
men, pursue his happiness.

XLhe One Big Question.
(Toronto Telegram.)
Ontario millers assembled in solemn
jonference have been asking themselves
jand lhe country this question :
Why should the rates on
flour from Detroit to Montreal and from Toronto to
Montreal be respectively as
Rate per Hundred.
For local    For
use.    export.
iDetroit to Montreal 15,'/^c       qJ^c
[TorontotoMontrsal is^c      u^c
The distance from  Detroit to Montreal is 564  miles.    The distance  from
oronto to  Montreal is 333  miles, and
tlie question which  the millers of Ontario are asking   themselves and  the
fiumtry can be repeated as follows:
Why     should     the    Grand
Trunk and the C. P. R. carry
American Hour 564 miles from
Detroit to Montreal, for 2 cents
per hundred  less  than   these
railways  will carry Canadian
flour 333 miles, from  Toronto
to Montreal ?
The  millers  of Ontario  should   noi
Lisk silly questions.
What bearing can the rates paid on
lexports of American flour from Detroit
Uiave upon the rates levied upon exports
|of Canadian flour from Toronto?
The millers and everybody else
Ishiuild realize that Canada, judged by
|lier railway policy, is the biggest fool
country on earth. *
Michigan taxes her railways for
tnore dollars than Ontario takes cents
nit of lhe Grand Trunk and C. P. R.
Michigan compels her railways to carry
assengers for two cents a mile. Ontario permits its railways to charge all
Hie traflie will bear. The Federal and
provincial governments of Canada
ave lavished subsidies and the Ontario
nunicipatities have bonused railways
,hich carry American flour from Detroit to Montreal for 9J2 cents per hun-
Ired, while it is a concession for these
ailways to carry Canadian flour from
loronto, a little more than half the
listance, to Montreal for 11 yz cents
xt hundred.
The short haul on exports of Cana-
lian flour from Toronto to Montreal
costs two cents per hundred more than
the long haul on American flour from
Detriot to Montreal. This discrimin-
ition gives a preterence of two cents
|?er hundred pounds of flour to the
nillers of Michigan as against the
idlers of Ontario on the British market. The preference is really to the
farmers of Michigan and other western
states as against the farmers of Ontario.
Canadian statesmanship urges Britain
to give a tariff preference to Canadian
iroduets on the English market, and
anadian statesmanship at the same
ime allows the Canadian railways to
rive American products a freight rate
^reference on the same market.
But  why  do the  millers of Ontario
isk questions ?
Canada is an Ephraim joined to his
idols. Canadians attend to the politics
of the country and allow the raihvas to
boss the business of the country. Canadians are instructed in the noble art of
voting hy the leaders and orgins of
railway governments and railway oppositions. Parliaments and legislatures,
with their pockets full of passes, talk
airy empty nothings about the transportation problem, and this little question and the other little question. Thc
one great question in Canadian politics
is the freight question, which conies
closer to the commerce, the industry,
the agriculture of Canada east and
west, than any of the alleged issues
which move the jaws of the politicians.
Canadian  statesmanship as revealed
in the  life  of Sir John A.  Macdonald,
Alexander  Mackenzie or their  successors, including Sir Wilfrid Laurier, may
have achieved triumphs.    The attempted solution  of the transportation  problem is not one of these triumphs.    The
Canadian has reason to doubt  the sanity  of his country  when  he contrasts
what Canada has done for the railways
with   what lhe   railways are  doing for
Canada.    Old Canada allowed   private
capital   to   share   the risks ofhuilding
the  Grand  Trunk  and other Ontario
lines.    The administrators of new Canada   have  given,   or  are  giving enu
public   lands   and   public  money   and
public credits to more than build all the
lines completed  or seriously  projected
by  tlie C.  P.   R.-Mackenzie  &  Mann
Canada and her railways are a glorious spectacle. The attempted solution
of the railway question could not have
been any worse if it had originally come
in equal parts from the penitentiary
and the asylum and had been worked
out by a joint committee of criminals
and lunatics.
