TRIUMPH
A sense of triumph filled his breast
And gladness lay within his eyes;
He had not done his best,
The world had not beheld  him  nobly
rise
To heights that Others sought in  vain.
He had not been accounted w ise;
The honors he had longed to gain
Were far away.    His fame
Had reached no distant clime;
He had not carved his name
High on the walls of time;
He had not won in love or in lhe mart,
But gladness tilled his heart;
One who was poor and meek
Cringed when he frowned, and ran
To do his bidding when  he  deigned to
speak;
He was the master ofthe weaker man���
And one who said him nay one day,
Came humbly every week
To draw her husband's meagre pay.
who bathed just opposite her window at
5 o'clock every morning- The council
wrote to the man, who replied that it
was so early in the day he had hoped
no one could take exception lo his
bathing off the Front; but that he would
gladly go two miles higher up. Last
week, however, the council received
another letter of complaint from the
lady: "The man 1 wrote you about
has gone higher up the beach, but 1
can still see him wuti a telescope."

Why  a Trust  Is  Like a River
A few reasons why a trust is like a
river :
It looks on the level, but it isn't.
It is always next to the banks.
There are sometimes a great many
bluffs along the way.
Some are a "dam site" worse than
others.
There is a lot of water in some of
them.
Its course is strewn with wrecks.
It flows thru many communities o:
interest.
It is usually rather crooked.
It floats bubbles nicely.
_,      ,.      C1     ���     ��� ... .1    I needn t worry yet
Tne   big   fish   in   it   gobble  up the |
small fry.
11 runs smoothest  where lhe  waters
are deepest.
It abounds with rocks.
Suckers are numerous.
It takes an awful frost to stop it.
Beware of running the rapids.
Trusts are like rivers.
Dam the trusts !
A Sensible Woman
The prince of Wales once called his
sisler, the duchess of Fife, "her royal
shyness," on account of her modest and
retiring disposition. Princess Victoria
is, however, even more retiring, her
overpowering shyness making publicity
quite a martyrdom to her. "I wish 1
were plain Miss Wales, without any-
great title or splendor to keep up,"
once said princess Victoria with a sigh
to her merry sister, princess Charles
oi Denmark.
Needn't Worry
The United States trust magnates
say they are not alarmed about what I
legal steps may be taken to curb their
rapacity. What should they be
alarmed? If they read the president's
speeches they must know that he has
pledged his party against the tariff
remedy, the only way the most of them
can be reached.    Oh,  no!    The   trusts

Christian Civilization
Now lhat the South African war is
over the wages of the blacks have been
reduced from $15.24 under Boer rule
to $6.34 per month under British capitalistic rule. The native chiefs are
being arrested for inciting their tribesmen to go  on strike.     Yes,    we   have
introduced Christian civilization into
South Africa. At least that is what
the sky-pilots call it.

THE  RUSH  TO  THUNDER
Hordes burros, dogs and mules,
Blankets, tents and mining tools,
Scores of young and ancient fools,
On, to Thunder Mountain.
Heavy pistols on their hips,
Mining phrases on their lips,
Fakirs, giving suckers tips,
On, to Thunder Mountain.
Climbing hills like mountain goa'.s,
Dropping ulslers, furs and coals,
Wishing the) could sail in boats,
On, to Thunder Mountain.
Once I saw a lady pack
Ki^his pounds upon her back,
All in ow big gunny sack,
On, to Thunder Mountain.
Heavy mil fits passed her by,
Climbing over mountains high ���
Leaving her to do or die.
On, to Thunder Mountain.
Such i selfish crowd of men
Ma) I never see again!
Miners, thev?    Not one in ten.
On, to Thunder Mountain,
Vet ihey can both do and dare,
And .ne bound to have their share
Ol those castles in lhe air,
I'p in Thunder Mountain.
What a waste of grit and push,
In this frightful, bughouse rush !
Hearts of oak and brains of mush,
On, to Thunder Mountain.
When we reach thc Dewey mine,
That is where we miners shine
And display our talents line,
Up in Thunder Mountain.
For we stand outside and yell:
"Wildcat Dewey, fake, and sell,"
Wi-liing thai we were���ah, well���
Urokf, in Thunder Mountain.
Some men turn their heads to home,
Others, still for placers roam���
Wishing they were in Cape Nome,
Far from Thunder Mountain.
In tlie Klondike I have been,
Where great rushes I have seen;
Hut what surely can it mean;
On, to Thunder Mountain.
Not an ounce of gold in sight,
Not a piece of ore thai might
Shed one truthful ray of light
On this Thunder Mountain.
1 am in the scramble, too,
Striving fiercely lo gel thru,
Dewey's bogus mine to view,
On, to Thunder Mountain.
You ��an buy a pick and pan,
Horse and saddle, and a man,
For a hoho's lump and can,
I'p in Thunder Mountain.
' on who dearly love a snap,
Listen lo my gentle rap,
^r. tjo fall into a trap,
Up in Thunder Mountain.
I rode in wilh cash to spare;
Now I'm hiking oul from here;
And to all 1 say:    "Beware
Of this Thunder Mountain."
One big dollar is the score
���i' a meal that's mighty poor;
But you dare not make a roar
Up in Thunder Mountain.
j ;"'i now both blythe and gay,
In the meadows pitching bay,
Happy to be safe away���
Far from Thunder Mountain.

Mulock and the Flower Girl
They are telling a good story in London of Sir William Mulock. the sedate
and scholarly gentleman who combines
the duties of trustee of the university of
Toronto wilh those of Canadian posl-
masler-general. Walking along the
Strand with a di>linguished London
lawyer, Sir Willian was inveighing
fiercely against English ignorance of
Canada. The lawyer pooh-poohed Sir
William's assertions. "Very well,"
said the Canadian postmaster-general,
"we will ask the next three people we
meet if they have ever heard of Canada."
The three they met were all Londoners.
The first answered "No." The second,
an old man, said that he had been
round London very near to sevent\
years and he knew it was nowhere
near the Strand. In his mosl amiable
manner, Sir William then accosted a
cockney Bower girl. She looked as
tho she might have been at a board
school, so the Canadian minister altered
his question, and asked her if she was
familiar with Otlawa. " Familiar
with who?" she replied. "You just go
along or I'll smack your dirty face."

SANDON, OCTOBER  u, 1902.
Coal Strike and 3ts memedp
The first low rumblings of the
great storm which must some day
break upon the great American republic
are heard in United States. Pennsylvania is a garrisoned camp. Her
people are in a state of rebellion.
Coal can be extracted only under arms.
Millions ot homes are cheerless and
fireless. The gaunt spectre of famine
hovers over half the republic. Mills
are idle, factories shut down, cold and
destitution reign. A hundred and
sixty-five thousand coal miners have
laid down their tools to demand their
rights. Capital and labor are involved
in the greatest industrial struggle of
modern times. What will be the
outcome?
Experience  has  proven   that the
coal barons are no more to  be  trusted
with the fuel supply of a million homes
than would a band of timber wolves to
herd   sheep.    The   economic   system
which appoints such men as Baer and
Truesdale (or any men,   for that   matter) the custodians of the nation's happiness is wrong on the face of it.     It is
just as insane   to give these  men  the
control of the fuel supply  and   permit
then to name the  terms on   which   it
shall be mined as it would be  to  give
them the right, title and ownership of
the earth, the water and the air.    The
folly  of it all is so obvious as to be
patent to anyone.   Carried to its logical
conclusion   it  means  that no one can
live in the coal  country  except   under
sufferance of the coal  barons and   no
one  can   burn  coal   except    by   their
consent.
The system is itself inherently
wrong; consequently it cannot live.
If the present industrial struggle does
not upset it and start off a new one, it
will lead to a greater struggle at some
future time. In the end the system
must fall. No man can be greater
than the whole people. No group of
men can be greater than the nation.
When the final struggle comes the
group will have to pass up to the
nation.
State ownership operation and
control of the coal mines is the only
solution of the coal  strike.    Turning-
the Lehigh into an armed camp and
extracting coal under arms is no settlement. All the armies of all the nations
on earth can not make a vested right
of an economic wrong. There is no
power, legal or military, that can alter
the truth. And the truth of the whole
matter is that the coal was put in the
ground by an Almighty God for the
use of the whole people. Laws, titles,
vested interests, capitalistic organizations, or any other agencies which
purpose to subvert this great truth
must eventually be brushed aside. If
the people of United States have a
conception clear enuf to see the truth
now they will take over the mines and
work them for the state. If they fail
in this they lay up a larger stock of
trouble for themselves in future. .
Ontario's mural ^Journalism
Ontario newspapers  are  setting
up   a   howl   because   magazines   and
newspapers  from   United   States   are
cutting in on their  trade.    This   howl
is emitted as a roast   on   the Canadian
people for reading sensational Yankee
literature, but it works the other way.
It    is   a    boomerang    on    Canadian
journalism.    Canada has a  bum lot of
newspapers,   and    Ontario    has    the
rockiest   galaxy   in   the     Dominion.
Journalism in the agricultural regions
of   Ontario   is   simply    vile.      Party
politics has reduced Ontario editors to
the   level   of   sycophants    and    mud
slingers, adoring their own  party  and
detesting the other fanatically.    With
very few exceptions we have yet to discover   one  spark  of originality or  a
trace of genius, thot or ability  in the
whole string  of country   papers  that
disgrace Ontario.    Their news service,
as well as  their editorial department,
is  something  awful.    Quacks,   boiler
plate and patent insides take the place
of news, and ninety-nine out of a hundred Ontario newspapers are  botched
and   pan-noodled   in  a   manner   that
should lead to the afrest of the editor.
Pay for subscription  is taken  in anything  moveable  from   tombstones   to
turnip seed.    Ads are  convertible into
orders   on the country store,   and the
printers get their pay in tickets to the
church social and orders on   the  harness   shop   or   the   brickyard.     The
editor   is   generally    regarded    as   a
parasite on the community, who has to
be kept  at  the public  expense.    He
usually lacks ability to make his presence valuable to the town he lives  in,
or his paper worth  reading.    Ontario
printers, as a rule, get  rat wages  and
they do rat work.    Not one paper out
of twenty carries the label or pays the
scale.     Typographically   they   are   a
regular abortion.    The ads in most of
them would give a sign fence painter
the nightmare.
These are the papers which do the
most kicking about sensational Yankee
journalism. Many of them want a
duty placed on American papers and
some of them even advocate restricting
their sale. Instead, the great hulk of
Ontario editors should be fined for
indecent exposure.
Andrew Carnegie says there is
no name so sweet to him as "Andy."
He says: "When I go to Pittsburg
some of the old railroad men in the
yards come up to me and say, 'How-
are you, Andy ?' When thev do that
I feel like saying, 'Here's my pocket
book." But there seems to be a wide
gulch between what Andy feels like
saying and what he does.
General Booth of the Salvation
Army is in the United States conducting meetings. In New York Pierp
Morgan was chairman of his meeting,
and in Cleveland Mark Hanna. Fellow convicts, let us pray.
The entertainment of Prince Hank
during his flying visit to the United
States cost $1,275,000. That money
could be used in a much better way
now in helping the striking miners in
Pennsylvania. , *
Barroom brawls and disgraceful

A national memorial will be
erected in London to the late Cecil
Rhodes. The next thing we'll be
hearing is that a national monument is
to be erected for Mr. Harry Tracy.
The latter was not as big an assassin

A fatal duel has occurred in
Franee, but neither principal was a
Frenchman. One was Niecengelweicz

Alphonso,   the   batty    king   W

is that furnished by suicide.

The campaign at Dawson between
ex-governor Ross and Joe Clark is
getting to be a hot one. The machine
element is behind Ross with all the
money necessary and Clark must be
beaten at any cost; otherwise the
Klondike will be represented by an
independent man and the whole Yukon
administration with its record office
and mounted police corruption will be
shown up. Some of the Yukon
judges stood in with the gamblers last
summer and got a rakeoff for permitting the games to run. Clark showed
them up in the Klondike Miner, and
the judges put him in jail for contempt
of court. Unless Ross and the Sifton
machine can down Clark at the election
it will l?e much the best for these
judges to resign and change their
address.
In the meantime a property that would
otherwise be a great producer is tied
up and Sandon is thereby deprived of
a large payroll and an extensive
business.
The delinquent tax sales will add
a few dollars to the provincial treasury
and also help the financial standing of
the papers that are publishing them.
The Cube Lode and Cody Fraction case is proving how tangled the
mining law can become when a gang
of champerty lawyers get a chance at
it. The case has been in litigation
since 1896, and if the court follows the
dilatory methods adopted in the Clark
and Collom case and the Sandon
townsite case, the Cube Lode and Cody
Fraction case will soon be so tangled
up that it will never be straitened out
before Gabriel blows the golden horn.
Get your money up on zinc and
get in on the ground floor of the big
boom. Slocan is not only the richest
white metal camp on earth, but it is
due to become the greatest zinc producer on the North American continent. The silver values in Slocan
zinc alone are worth more than the
total net returns of Joplin ore.
A million dollars reward awaits
the company of capitalists which will
build an up to date zinc smelter in the
gas belt at Medicine Hat. The reward
will be paid in legitimate profits on an
industry in which there is no chance to
lose.
According to the Montreal Star
Quebec will go conservative by a big
majority next election. Perhaps it
will. Quebec occasionally takes a
notion to be painfully grit.
Zinc prices are going up in London and zinc percentages are going
down in Missouri. Slocan will take
the zinc route to prosperity.
Cattle are down in price, and
soap has gone up. This is joyful
news to meat eaters and hoboes.
The anthracite coal strike situation
remains practically unchanged, being
still in eastern Pennsylvania.
Pierp Morgan is now the father
of a greater country than Chris Columbus ever dreamed of.
Free coinage of coal is the popular cry in New York this week, where
it costs $16 for 1 ton.
Laurier has sailed for home. He
expects to do a little housecleaning
when he arrives.
A few sets of blue papers were

FLUCTUATIONS   IN   LEAD
Price of Pig Lead at London Since 1880.
Of Interest to Lead Miners.
Every community has a certain number of croakers. There are plenty ol
men today who will tell you that the
price of lead was never so low as at lhe
obtain there is less robbery under legal
forms than elsewhere. In 1872 a
general mining law with certain local
privileges was passed, and we do not
think or believe that the history of
jurisprudence will show as much
bribery, corruption, perjury and downright brazen robbery as followed the
operation of that law up to 1894.
Yet with all its evil, lhe prospeclor and
miner has been almost a generation
working under il, he has followed the
rulings, decisions, etc., until now he
can barely protect his interest without
consulting an expensive attorney or a
purchasable expert.���San Francisco

Fal.se Utterances
No man is more roundly abused today
in British Columbia than Kdmunn B.
Kirby, manager of the War Eagle and
Center Star mines at Rossland. Strange
to say, the abuse is not coming from
labor organizations, but from men who
are seldom in sympathy with labor
organizations. The false anil pessimistic utterances of Mr. Kirby are
having widespread circulation and are
doing lhe province no end of harm.
Altho his utterances were known lo be
false and pessimistic, Mr. Kirby '-
associates in lhe Canadian Mining Institute had not the courage lo repudiate
and refute them, and they were allowed
lo go forth as the views of not only Mr.

As It Is  Today
0 Law is the rule of action. It should
be the essence of common sense. Laws
' should be few in number and easily understood and interpreted, not by the
few, but by lhe mass whose industries
or lives are affected by them. Previous
to 1872 miners formulated their own
district laws, suited to local conditions,
and never have rights of common
miners and prospectors been so rigidly
conserved as under those old local
ordinances, and  where such  laws yet
stitute. From this time on thai scientific body will be as discredited as the
late Mine Owners' Association was before ils timely demise.���Nelson Tribune.
Sleepy Canadians
VV7. F. McCreary of Winnipeg  earnestly advocates trie advantages offered
by the west.     "Ever, thing is all right,"
he says.    "It   is   to  be regretted that
eastern Canadians are not in touch with
the great development that is going on
in the west, and   aware   ol the   money
that   is   being   made   by   Americans.
Rossland   and   the   Yukon,    in    their
palmy days, were exploited  by  Americans and millions of dollars   taken   out
of them before Canadians awakened to
the fact that there  was  any   money in
it. The same thing is occurring today on
the Canadian prairies.

FngllHh Laws
In 1363 a law was enacted in England t'1 regulate the diet and apparel of
laborers. The price to be paid for
cloth for said apparel was also regulated
bylaw. It took 300 years lo abolish
this law.    Think of thai, labor men !
How is this one���enforced in 1646:
"The poor may be whipped to death
and branded lor rogues, and so become
felons by the law, and the next time
hanged lor vagrancie, before any
private man will set them to work, or
provide houses for labor, and stock and

DIFFERENT NOW
He used to send her roses;
He sent them every hour.
But now they're married, and he sends
Her home a cauliflower.
An Editor's Reflection
A highway rohber is a prince compared to the fellow who, in the guise of
friendship, will take a drunken man's
money at gambling. Such a fellow
will generally die in the gutler and
furnish a feast for the flies, while his
soul poisons the ozone of hell with its
vile presence.���New Denver Ledge.
Accident at Whitewater
What might have proved a fatal
accident occurred last Monday afternoon
al Whitewater, as Mr. Wheeler and his
family were coming from the Whitewater mine on a wagon, intending to
go to Spokan. On the way down the
team ran away, throwing Mrs. Wheeler
down the mountain side. Altho she-
was badly bruised and shaken no
serious results are anticipated.

A Great Man
Chief Justice Gordon Hunter, who is
holding   court   at   Nelson for the first
time,   on   his   arrival   was    cordially
greeted by a number of old-time friends.
He and   D.   Mark  Carley   worked together   al   odd   limes  in  Victoria, al
composing   dramas   and   poems   that
were   never   put  on  the  stage   or in
books; and be and Dr. Quintan studied
Latin and Greek in the same  school at
Brantford, Ontario, when  they were so
small   that   the   teacher could  wallop
them both al once.    It   is   not  so long
since the chief justice and the editor of
the Tribune discussed schemes  on  the
James Bay bridge that, had  they  been
carried out, would   have  either  bankrupted   the   province   or   made  it an
eldorado.     Now Mr. Hunter has a life
position of $5,000 a year as the head of
the highest court in the  province,   and
the other three are  rustling   to   make
boih   ends   meet.      Such    is    life.���
