"'The man who makes a fortune on
the board of trade, or in the stock exchange, or in building up a gigantic
business, adds not om.' cent to tIk-
world's state of available wealth," says
Secretary Malum oi the miner's congress.
���' The world in other words is no
richer because he is richer. Me is
rather richer because some one else is
poorer. On the other hand the miner,
whether he digs oul $10 or $100,000
adds that much to the world's wealth.
and with this added wealth contributes
just that amount of the world's comfort
and happiness. 'The miner is the king

"Few explorers have endowed a nation with a richer dower than tlie prospector; he it was who gave California,
Colorado, Montana, Idaho and the
great west to civilization. Inn tor the
prospector and the products of his discoveries there would be no great west

on the Missouri river.
"It is claimed thai (he agricultural

well afford to acquience in this cl urn,
since permanent an substantial gain
belongs to our mineral product.
" For example at the end of each and

MONTREAL police are enterprising
and up to date. Last week they
peddled tickets to a hanging and the
execution was performed before a large
and enthusiastic audience, altho it could
hardly be said that the affair was
pulled off without a hitch. The price
of admission was regulated according
to what the traffic would stand, varying
from $10 to four bits. This was on
the European plan of paying according
to how bad you wanted it, and may
act as a basis for fixing rates when
necktie socials become the popular
amusement. No doubt if ticket holders had the privilege of selecting the
party to be hanged a much better price
would be realized, and if the selection
were arranged on a basis of io cents a
vote like the "Most Popular Young
Lady" contests at the   church fair the
government would soon be able to pay
off the national debt out of the proceeds of its hangings.
Thk United States customs officers
in Tacoma and Seattle are having a
bad time of it with the Jap smugglers
who spirit women across the 49th parallel by the light of the moon. These
women are purchased from their parents in Japan, shipped to Japanese
agencies in Vancouver and from there
smuggled into United States where
they are sold as prostitutes to the
highest bidder. Uncle Sam has always
made an effort to stop the traffic, but
as it runs wide open in Canada there is
no particular difficulty about getting
the Jap women into the land of the
free, where they are slaves in the most
literal sense of the word. As a consequence Japanese houses of prostitution
are running in nearly every town and
city in California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia and Alaska,
and the women are invariably owned
by some Japanese pimp who grows
wealthy out oi the traffic. This is a
phase of the Oriental question which
does not frequently get into print and
it is noticable that it is entirely overlooked by the missionaries and goo goo
church folks who oppose exclusion
because it is un-Christian.
Latest wires   from   London state
that   King   Ed   is   weakening.     His
physicians admit that he is off his feed
and they will not be able to bring him
to the scratch in   proper form.    Some
say that he is buffaloed, that the game
is getting too big for  him, others suggest that those American heiresses give
him   that   tired   feeling,   while   some
literary folks insinuate that it is Alfred
Austin's poetry, but  there  is a shrewd
suspicion in  diplomatic  circles  that it
is that loyalty slop   in   the   Canadian
papers   that   makes   him sick.    This
recent collapse is  a  great  disappointment to his trainers.    Just  think what
a bum show  it   would be  if   the kino-
had to be propped   up by a   couple of
boosters   while    the   old    archbishop
plunked   that   crown   onto   him ;   or
worse still, if they had to load his limp
anatomy   into    a    wheelbarrow    and
trundle him into  the arena like a sack
of hay.    No, no !    That  would  never
do.    The gang  has   everything nicely
arranged for   a spectacular coronation
and Ed will have   to   pull   himself together and go  thru  with it.    He may
be showing his age a   little   now   and
probably lacks  the  steam  for  a long
engagement, but  the people are going
to get that crown onto him anyway* so
he might as  well   ginger   up  and get
into the game.

ZBlmore process.
The new Elmore process of oil concentration of ores appears, nays the
Colonist, judging from recent numerous tests, to promise great tilings.
Tests made on the low-grade ore of
one oi the Rossland mines gave the
following results: The concentrates by
the oil process contained 6.08 per cent
of copper, while concentration by water
gave only 2 6 per cent, the silver and
j^old contents being proportionately
higher and the tailings showing much
higher recovery in the case of oil than
by the water concentration.

About the game's mondity, I think
That's neither here nor there���
It's pretty much like other games
When dealt upon the square.
It men have cash and want to play,
The game won't  hinder them a bit;
j In time they learn it doesn't pay,
And then they sometimes quit.
I've dealt the game for twenty years;
I've left it now���I didn't fail���
I sickened at one sight 1 saw,
And thereby hangs a tale.
Some three years since I ran a game,
A high toned one���dead on lhe square
It" I'm not wrong, you know the place,
I think I've seen you there.
Well sir��� 1 ran a thriving game,
And dealt for half lhe bloods in town;
jl've had as much as live layouts,
And no place to sit down.
[One night a young chap strolled in;
Fair hair, blue eyes and clear cut lace.
[So fresh, lhat you could see,
He was a stranger to the place.
He was at home tho for you could see
In his blue eyes the love of play;
And alter that first evening's deal
He scarcely missed a day.
He played his pile right up and up,
And never growled if luck was hard,
He stacked the limit up in blue,
On every second card.
His luck was bad sometimes the worst
1 ever saw   -and I've seen lots.
I've seen him in a single deal
Lose seven double-shots.
Business for me of course, and yet,
Sometimes it seemed too had���
(Of course I couldn't say a word���
Hut then 1 liked the lad.
He'd lots of cash tho;
He must have lost,
A hundred thousand first and last,
Before he gave up play.
[We both quit gambling the same night;
He, poor  boy, for a sufficient  cause,
And I because 1 loathed ihe game���
And this was how it was.
ille didn't have much coin along���
It gave out in a deal or two���
So he put up his diamond ring
To see his ill-luck thru.
The chips soon   went���he had a pin,
a flaming stone in massive gold;
Without a word he passed il in
And drew live hundred cold.
So help me God! 1 wished him luck,
As did each player in lhe place,
Hut no! His last stack came my way
L'pon a losing ace.
He passed me in his watch and chain
And drew 1 think three hundred more
And tried his line of bets again,
The luck was as before.
My God! I never shall forget
The pale drawn look upon his face;
Hut still he never spoke a word
He never left his place.
His hand lay where his chips had been
And moved at times as if to bet;
A thin worn circlet of dull gold,
Was on his finger yet.
It caught his eye at length-he stopped
And looked at it a little space,
And a warm Hood of crimson blood
Passed hotly o'er his face.
And then he drew it off���it came
Reluctantly���this worn old ring,
For closer than the flashing gem
This circlet seemed to cling.
He handed it across to me���
"1 don't know what its value is
Hut I'll redeem it first of all,
What can 1 have on this ? "
1 took the ring, it might have cost
Five dollars���'twas worthless then���
Hut I passed out a fifty stack
1 o lei him try again.
He planked the pile down in the pot;
Then low upon the table laid
His head upon his folded arms,
And so that deal was played.
Well  sir  the  luck   changed;  he  won
three times,
1 told him when the limit barred.
He took no notice���so we played
Two fifty on each card.
Well sir,   would you   believe it, in that
The pot won out and never lost;
And slill the winner hid his face
l'pon his two arms crossed.
The deal was out; we shook him up.
He did not move! 1 raised his  head;
And there amid his piled-up gains
The boy was silting dead!
I've often wondered to myself
What   thots   were   flitting   ihru   his
When he laid   down his fair young face
And hid it from mankind.
We cannot know; and it is well,
Such pangs we guess at���do not feel;
His face showed countless years of hell
Lived thru in that brief deal.
It was not until lhe inquest sat
That 1 learned all remorse's sting;
The ring that changed his luck and life
Was his dead mother's ring.
Poor boy! Had his sad lot been cast
'Mid different and better men
He might be living now !
For me���1 never dealt again !

M natural Wonderland.
Ainsworlh has a natural phenomena
which should attract the attention of
scientists and tourists if properly advertised. On the Carbonate claim, just
below the historic Skyline property,
about four miles and a half from Ains-
worth, there is a mammoth cave which
has never been fully explored and even
the existence of which is not very generally known. It is situated in the
big lime dike which cuts across the
formation therefor miles and dips into
the lake at Ainsworth. This lime dike
is already noted for its hot springs and
other natural phenomena, but the cave
is the greatest wonder of all. Theodore Adams, Henry Cody and Jack
McKinnon, all of Kaslo, visited it not
long ago and thev have a great story
to tell
The cave can be reached bv the Skyline wagon road and a short trail which
runs lo within  a few   hundred yards of
it.'   The entrance, which is   situated in
a rock slide, is  small,    permitting only
one at a lime to enter.    The  exploring
partv   took   ropes,   picks  and   lanterns
and entering the cavern's   mouth   they
followed down a natural   tunnel   which
led in on  a   pilch   of   about    45 for 50
feet, and then opened   out   into  an immense cave with a  roof a hundred feet
high, lined and frescoed   with  dazzling
crystals and beautiful stalactites, which
shone and glittered   like   diamonds, reflecting back the light oi the   explorers'
lanterns.    Along   the   main   cavern, in
which   there   runs   a   stream  six feet
wide and a foot deep,   they   followed to
where they came to a  waterfall   which
emptied into a second large chamber of
unknown    proportions.      Other   large
chambers open on every   side  and   the
cave is undoubtedly an extensive one as
a brisk wind blows thru   it everywheie.
The stream drops in   from   above   by a
funnel-shaped sink   hole   and   follows
along the floor of  the cave for   a long
distance,    finally   disappearing   into a
crevasse   which   probably   leads lo another extensive cavern   below   and   the
explorers believe il is the   source ofthe
hot springs, the   water   following  thru
the lime dike for four miles.
It is the intention to run an excursion
up from Kaslo some time in lhe near
future and thoroly explore the cave.
The Kaslo Miners' Union may take the
excursion in hand and supply all the
facilities for a complete investigation,
after which the cave could be charted
and made a point of interest for tourists, scientists and others interested in
natural phenomena. The scenery along
the roule is the grandest in the Selkirk
range. From the Skyline wagon road
the whole of Kootenay lake, right to its
head at Bonners' Ferry, seventy miles
away, cm be plainly seen and the
grand panorama of glaciers, peaks and
pinnacles simply beggars description.
The great cave at Ainsworth is sure to
take a place among the attractions of
this nature's Wonderland called Kootenav.
