Twenty-five cents! The profit of a

they took several shots at him they
never seemed to have much effect on
Bruin. Alex Smith, J. W, Peacock
and E. Lucas finally conceived the idea
of trapping the monster, but Only with
the result that there traps were always
sprung but no bear. Finally after
burying their trap in the earth they
were rewarded last Saturday by hearing a loud growl which brot them to
the trap and sent the foreman under
his bunk out of harm's way. Peacock
arid Lucas soon dispatched bruin with
a Winchester and a 44 Colt revolver.
The bear tipped the Jackson scales at
817 pounds.

It has lone; been a favorite prophecy among miners that the zinc
market could easily be cornered,
because there is no such thing as
scrap metal to interfere with the
complete control of the mining out-
pat. But this dream must now be
dispelled, for the discovery of millions of dollars worth of the metal
in Arkansas will render a corner
impossible. It would not even be
possible to buy up the mines and
form a combination, because nearly
all the mines are on Government
land, of which any one person may
buy but 320 acres. While hundreds of prospective settlers are
agreeing under the. Government
rule to settle in the prairie states
on the Indian reservation, there
are thousands and thousands of
acres owned by the Government in
the zinc district of Arkansas which
may be obtained by any citizen free
under the Homestead law or which
may be purchased outright for 81.25
an acre. The land is all underlaid
with zinc, and there is a fortune in
it for the settler, if he has patience
to wait awhile, for the very richest
district is not on the railroad. It
is truly a remarkable condition.
Several railroads are racing into the
district which heretofore has been
a much despised region, aud the
day that the first one gets its feeders into the mines thousands of
people who can hardly grub a living
off their land now will become
wealthy. And yet all the Government land is not taken up,although
the rush into the district is tremendous.
Near Jasper. Marion county, 1000
tons of ore lie piled on the ground
waiting for the future market. It-
is at least 60 per cent, ore, and the
mine from which it came seems to
be inexhaustible. The thousand
tons were blown right off the surface of the ground. On the Buffalo
river there is a shaft which had
been sunk 67 feet through zinc and
the ore seemed to be getting better
in grade the further down they
went. The bottom of that shaft
had water in it, and from what the
writer could learn the owner had
intentionally placed it there for the
purpose of concealing his bonanza
from the gaze of objectionable
neighbors and claim-jumpers. Near
Dodd City is another shaft 125 feet
deep, 90 feet of which was pay ore.
Between Harrison and  Dodd  City
a Massachusetts man who had purchased 80 acres at $2.50 an acre
refused $90,000 for his land, and
stands pat for $100,000  when the j
railroad gets through.
Meantime the railroads are racing
one another to bring the futures of
these people nearer to them. The
St. Louis and San Francisco railroad has already got as far as Harrison on the way to Yellville, the
centre of the zinc district. One of
the Gould roads is constructing a
connecting link passing to the
northwest near Harrison into the
Joplin district. Another road will
be built from Salem, Mo., to Fort
Smith, passing right through the
zinc belt. Still another road is
being bnilt from Harrison to Win-
nerva, the head of navigation on
the White river,where the Government is putting in locks aud dams
to improve the water transportation. One of the roads is boring a
tunnel 1000 feet long through the
mountain near Eureka Springs.
It is all mountainous country and
the obstacles with which the roads
have to contend make the race exciting.
The discovery of zinc ore came
about as follows:
Two farmers' girls, driving home
the cows one evening, picked up
pieces of a shining mineral, which
they called flickers. The men folks,
however, thought they had found
pieces of silver, and a company was
formed and prospecting begun.
They found a ledge where the ore
showed thick and they imported
two German metallurgists, who
built them a smelter according to
the old Spanish pattern. It is still
standing. The smelter was filled
with ore and charcoal and they
held ladles to catch the molten
silver when it ran out. But it did
not run and all they got was the
fumes of the metal passing up from
the smt'ltcr, or, as one native put
it, there "riz the heautifulest rainbow you ever seed." That was
over 30 years ago aud they did not
think enough of zinc then to develop the ledge. Yet the Morning
Star mine, as the site is now called,
contains the greatest deposit of zinc
ever  uncovered in  the history of
mining. It is really a zinc quarry.
The first blast threw off hundreds
of tons of 40 per cent, ore and the
ore face now exposed is 60 feet,
thick. There is really no estimating the value of the ore in sight
smd yet so crude are the transportation facilities that the ore now
being marketed is rafted 200 miles
down the river.
THK   sriUIT   <IK    .IN WtCIIHM.
The spirit of anarchism is more
to be feared than its fiercest and
ugliest form.    We are all ready to
cry out against the mad and vulgar
deed of the dastard assassin. We
denounce it because it is both mad
and vulgar. In its madness it
frustrates its own ends, and in its
vulgarity offends gentle and refined
tastes. So indignant are we that
we stand up and demand that anarchism l>e suppressed and all anarchists expelled. Having done so
much as that, and having seen a
few degenerate and deformed creatures put out of the way, we shall
settle down to life as it was conscious of having cherished proper
sentiments at tbe right time.
But anarchism is not to be suppressed by loud denunciations from
press and pulpit, or by new legislation placed upon the statute book.
Congress may indeed make an attack upon the life of the President
a capital offence, and State Governors may pronounce condemnation upon anarchism in their messages, but all that will avail nothing, for anarchism is not flesh and
bones to be ended by the electric
chair, or a thing of bulk and weight
to be deported across the seas. The
misguided assassin and his alian-
doned confederates are not all there
is of anarchism; and, even were
they all given over to the vengeance
of the mob of indignant citizens,
the evil which they incarnate would
still remain, for their own bad spirit
had already gone into the blood of
their executioners and made them
anarchists in turn.
We are altogether shallow in our
thinking and self-righteous in our
conduct if we suppose that we can
play the part of anarchists and escape their condemnation. Talmage
talked the rankest anarchism, as
recklessly as ever Emma Goldman
raved and much more hurtfully,
when he wished that the President's
assassin had been instantly murdered with his own smoking pistol.
Scores of American newspapers
have been rioting in anarchism all
the while they have been breathing
out vengeance against the anarchists. The whole American nation
have been guilty of anarchism in
that they have allowed lynching of
defenceless negroes by infuriated
mobs without even the semblance
of trial or justice; aud the negro
delegate uttered a warning word
when he told the great Methodist
Conference in London last Week
that "the country which will not
protect its humblest citizen need
not be surprised when the life of
its President is threatened."
Nor need we in Canada rest content, for we too live in a house of
glass. The coarse and brutal type
of anarchism which speaks against
the King or seeks the murder of tl,
civil magistrate is not to be foun
among us, but the spirit of anarch
ism is abroad and is working eva
in the life of our country. Fo
what is anarchism ? it i8 not thr
shooting of kings or the assa^
tion of presidents, or the wild and
foolish speech of misshapen souk.
Whatever dejsats the ends of justice
or subverts the progress of ^
order, or destroys the dignity and
authority of civil government, i8o|
the essence of anarchism.
What shall we say, then, of the
attempts,successful or unsuemgfui
of great  corporations to control
legislation for their own ends, but
to the people's hurt ?   It is anari
ism.    What shall we call the*
nipulating of conditions by wtofc
enormous wealth lifts a few m
above the reach of the law so tint
the powers that be are created, nm
to the ordinance of God, but by tbe
will of the capitalists?   It is anarchism.    Who are they that form
rings and cliques and by organize
tion within the body politic gain
their own ends through holding the
Iwilance of power,  the "imperii!
in  impcrio," the men of the'corporate vote," be they ecch'siasth!.
industrial, commercial or wbt n< t?
They   are   anarchists.    Who are
they that go through the land corrupting the electors, buying individuals with money, buying whole
districts with promises, and nullifying the judgment of the people
by stuffing the ballot-boxes with
bognB votes?   They are anarchists.
What shall we call the men who
beseige the government and demand
concessions and favors, not becM*
they are just,  but because they
would serve the sel fish ends of those
who seek them ?   They are anarchists.   All this is anarchism, and
none the l��ss to be  feared that it
pretends to be respectable and does
ite work without the clumsy aid ��f
pistol or bomb.
It is of the first importance that
we all understand clearly and believe firmly that civil government
is not a mere social convenience,^
impromptu affair, a chance outgrowth of civilization, but that in��
very true and real sense ���'the powers that be are ordained of Goo
and that "by Him kings rule M

Detroit, Oct. 2nd, 1901
Dear Billy.
Left the home ranch today and
hit the Rapid Transit for Detroit.
The rapid part of this transit outfit
is a blind. It does 60 miles of the
transiting in 4 hours and 27 minutes.
However this beats the K. & S. out
by 31 miles and 3 minutes. Besides
the sceneryjdoesn't need so much watching; it is not likely to  slide in on you.
Bill Yawkey has an elegant office
on the 6th floor of the Union Trust
building. He drives a smooth team
of trotters and seems to know the
ropes. When I caught up with him
he had just blown in from West Virginia where they are incidentally
gathering in a few thousand acres of
coal lands. Bill is slightly infatuated
with the mineral resourses of New
Ontario and calculates to move in on
the ground floor of the boom that is
dead sure to hit that camp when the
prospecting laws of the premier province are revised so as to cut out the
agricultural enactments which are now
standing between Algoma and prosperity.
I went up against a show called
"In Cripple Creek" at the Grand tonight. The title was attractive but it
was not lived up to. The thespians
certainly never were in Cripple Creek
by at least 3600 miles. The play was
written by a tenderfoot. The box
office was held down by a financier
who has a thoro grasp of the silver
I encountered an old school mate of
mine to day who had a grip on the
latest electrical movements. He is
motor man on a Jefferson avenue car.
He said he hoped to run across me
tomorrow. Not if I know it. I imagine I see myself tangled in the fender
of his trolley car.
Detroit comes pretty close to being all right. Since Mr. Techumpsey
called in here in 1822, it has become
quite Americanized and, except for the
fact that galvanized Canadians run the
burg it is now a United States town.
The streets are well-lighted, well-
watered well-paved and clean. Hazen
Pingree is in the cemetery but his
work is indeliably stamped on the city
of Detroit. Every municipal enterprise bears the Pingree brand of honesty and utility. The Michigan Cen-
ral runs train's out of here that touch
65 miles an hour. Mr. Vanderbuilt
owns the road and has not lost any
money on it recently. Mr. Vanderbuilt does not make a practice of dropping any money in the railroad business anyway. His paternal progenitor
is credited with the sagacious axiom
that the public was a big baby which
liked to be fooled. The present Mr.
Vanderbuilt is now giving continuous
expositions of this statement of fact by
making railroads pay and then throwing aqua pura into the stock with a
hydraulic giant.
I proffered a dub a Bank of Commerce bill with "Yukon" on the surface. He said nit. He had read
about Dawson City, Klondyke and
Alaska but Yukon was a new one on
him and he had his suspicions* I undertook to explain to him that the
Yukon was a little way north of Three
Forks, but he said that didn't make
any difference. The bill was in Detroit. I am going to sell him some
town lots in the suburbs of Nelson
close to Cape Nome where he can get
a good view of the War Eagle and
Treadwell mines. Such ignorance as
his should be realized on without
President McKinley's untimely
fate seems to have been dropped from
from smoking room discussion during
the last few days and no one now
courts an attack of locomotor ataxia
by trying to pronounce Czolgoszs
name. When the subject does come
up it seems to be a case of assaying
Rooseveldt. Judging from the conversation ofthe travelling public Teddy
is expec'ed to ginger up pretty soon
and get in the game. Wha the will
do to Mark Hanna is the main topic of
speculation. Teddy the Terrible is all
right on mountain lions but his ability
to nail Mark's hide to the inside of the
policy barn where it will not be exposed to view is questioned.
The revenue inspectors along the
boundary line are a funny josh. People on both sides smuggle with impunity and consider the sport fashionable.
At Port Huron the other day I saw a
society bell smuggling a folding bed
thru the customs office. A guy here
told me that a Windsor woman bot an
alarm clock at a sheeney auction recently and undertook to get it across
on a free trade basis but just the moment she struck Canadian soil the
plagey thing went off in her bustle.
That made it bad. Another woman
started out to smuggle a hive of bees
across but the bees���guess I won't tell
that story, either.
Wm. MacAdams.
By many journals which l\o not see
the great labor question as this journal
does, it is being heralded forth that
Canadian labor unions arc under the
domination of American labor unions.
The Western Federation, so these
journals say, is a foreign aggregation
of dynamiters, subject to the dictates
of Winchester arbiters in Telluride or
the mill-removing Mollie McGuires of
the Coeur d* Alenes. The trackmen
were accused of knuckling to a foreign
agitator, Wilson. The typographical
unionists���so it is asserted���are entirely subservant to the United States
head office, and so on down the line.
Now this style ofagrument may
sound forcible to the men who resort
to it, but it is not. Barney aMacdon-
donald, himself a Yankee, representing old country capital, is working the
gag to death thru the Rossland Miner;
Barney is a chump.
In the first place, the allegation is
not true, but Barney must know it or
he is a bigger fool than he is usually
sized up to be. A very brief perusal
of the constitutton of any labor union
will show that all power is vested in
its individual members. Its actions
are the result of a referendum. No
officer can declare a strike unless ordered to do so by a two-thirds vote of
the members. So far as authoritv is
concerned the officers are impotent,
except to carry out the wish of the
members. Consequently, no United
States official could declare a strike in
Canada, or United States either, for
that matter.
On the other hand affiliation with
a United States organization may have
a different effect. For instance, suppose the Rossland Union did not have
the sanction and moral and financial
support of the Western Federation it
could not continue the strike. It is
within the powers of the Federation to
refuse this sanction. Consequently,
as we have just said, affiliation with a
United States body cannot precipitate
a strike but it may prevent one.
But there is another side to the
labor union case which the majority of
folks do not understand. The labor
union is a rational movement toward
universalism. It recognizes that sectionalism has underlain every war and
quarrel since the world began; therefore it discards sectionalism. To the
labor unionist, as to the socialist, there
is no boundary line. The labor union
tries to discard the fallacy of the flag.
It works for the abolition of parochialism. It acknowledges no creed. It
scorns the pride of nationality, race or
tribe. It works toward the uplifting
of the toiling masses and it extends the
right band of fellowship to the whole
world. The labor Union acknowledges,
the universal brotherhood of man. THE PAYSTREAK, SANDON, B. C, OCTOBER 12,
