Sharpsburg,   Iowa, Jan. 27.
Editor Paystreak.
Dear Sir :
There are   a   number   here   that
would like to go to British Columbia
and form a colony. What kind oi a
country have you around Cody ? Is il
farming country or is it a timbered
country? Is it a good place to raise
stock or are the winters too cold ?. I
would like to know what land can be
hot for an acre and if it is level prairie
or timber land? Send me a sample
copy of vour paper, 1 hear so much
about it.
Yours Truly,
VV. J.  Knott.

CONVENTION AND TEM-
PLEMAN BOLT^.
All ho we always do everything on
the level in this country, Mr. Knott
would hardly consider the Slocan a
prairie. Most of it is strait up and
some places it leans over a little. A
man plowing the Payne bluff, for instance, would have to put stickers on
his horses to keep them from moving
into Three Forks. Most of the plowing
is done with a rotary. But we raise
lots of stock in the Slocan and have a
way of watering it lhat would be new
to the man from Iowa. There is one
farm in the Slocan that we know of,
the Galena Farm, but it is too heavily
stocked already. The winters are not
frigid, but the lead market gets most
awful chilly some times, causing folks
to have cold feet. The price of land
varies. Some pieces on the Star hill
or around the Ivanhoe would be worth
about a million dollars an acre ; then
there are some other spots that are not
worth epjite so much. We invite Mr.
Kntt to visit the Slocan. He will see
many curious things here. If he
keeps his hand on his money the wild
cats will not hurt him.
Ed. Miller left on Thursday for Gil-
roy, Santa Clara county, California,
where he intends to  spend   the winter.
The Liberal convention which opened
at Vancouver on Thursday, promises
to be as sensational as the last one.
When the convention opened Senator
Templeman held the chair as president
of the Provincial executive, and proceeded to introduce his credentials
committee, composed entirely of members of the executive. The Vancouver
and Interior delegates held a caucu>
and decided to record a unanimous
kick against such a committee. Frank
Burnett of Vancouver proposed the
resolution appointing a credential committee composed oi one member from
each electoral district. Templeman
objected and the motion was carried
over his head.
The New committee opposed admitting Liberal editors, members of the
executive and Captain John Irving's
Cassiar delegation which wasj'enlisted
in Victoria. After two houts of a hot
time in which the convention almost
broke up in a row, a motion to exclude
members of the executive committee
from the convention was passed, and
Templeman left the hall, lollowed by
Bodwell, Dull", Davis and some forty or
more others of the Victoria and Cassiar
delegation, leaving the convention in
the hands of Joe Martin and his followers.
Notwithstanding the cold and snowv
weather, Folliott & McMillan, the contractors, are making satisfactory progress with the construction of the mill.
The framework is all up and the roof
on, and the interior work is being-
pushed ahead rapidly.
The water pipe which is to supply
the mill with power and water has
been laid and will be tested   toeay.
In the No. 8 tunnel two shifts were
put on again yesterday. The electric
drills are  giving   satisfactory   service.
In No. 5 sinking is still being continued in the shaft. No. 6 level is
being pushed ahead and is now 175
feet on the ledge.
The Payne is shipping over the C.
P. R. this month mid has sent out 50
tons so far. the papstreak, Sanadon, B. C, Februarp 1.
Mn increase of Capital.
C. P. R   TO   ADD   $20,000,000  TO
ITS COMMON STOCK.   TO
IMPROVE THE
ROAD.
The Canadian Pacific Railway is applying to the Dominion government for
power to increase its   capital   stock by
$20,000,000.    This stock  is to be sold
at par and the proceeds applied to betterments on the road, as follows :
For new rolling stock, $q,000,000.
Double-tracking, $6,000,000.
New plants for construction of rolling
slock, chiefly at Montreal,  $1,500,000.
New elevators,   improvement of terminals, $3,000,000^
Miscellaneous   improvements,  $500,
000.
The big crop   of   iqoi    caught   the
Canadian   Pacific   napping ; thev had
neither track,  cars  nor  motive  power
to hanule  the   60,000,000   bushels   of
wheat raised in   Manitoba  and N. VV.
T. and they propose now to increase the
efficiency of the  road.     Double tracking the system from Lake  Superior to
Brandon,    Manitoba,   has   long   been
considered part of the  program of the
company and a large  part  of the $6,-
000,000 will undoubtedly be  devoted to
this work.    The   plant   to   be built at
Montreal for the construction of rolling
slock will   complete   the  independence
of the C.   P. R. so   far  as   operation is
concerned.      When   the   wheat    rush
came last fall the Canadian Pacific had
orders in every   car shop   and locomotive works in   America,    but   so great
was lhe crush of orders in   these establishments that the Canadian road could
not add a wheel to its rolling stock.
In giving the company power to issue
this extra capital, the government provides that it shall not sell the stock below par, and that Jill the proceeds of
the sale shall be devoted to improving
the system.
The showing of liquid refreshments
never pinches out at the Kootney Hotel.

What is the path on Which
the message travels ?
BY OEOROB HUSTON.
Mr. Marconi's experiment in wireless
telegraphy has opened the question, as
to the theory of what path serves as a
guiding core, thru the atmosphere, to
carry the current to its destination.
The writer has been experimenting
with saturated vapors, as nearly similar
as possible with the appliances at hand,
like those over the ocean, and has
evolved a theory, which to him and all
other experienced telegraphers he has
explained it to, seems more reasonable
than the wave theory
It is well known that if two terminals
of a battery be connected to a glass
tube tilled with salt water, a circuit will
be found almost as strong as if the
terminals were connected by wire.
The circuit will not form 'with pure
water.
The same phenomena occurs when a
salt saturated vapor is used in place of
the water and allho I had no delicate
measuring instruments to record the
strength it worked the common telegraph sounder stronger than with the
salt water.
What are the deductions to be drawn
from the vapor experiment ?
Take the system in use now,, with
wires as conductors of the electric current.
The wire serves as a guiding core
thru the atmosphere around which the
current revolves along in ever increasing circles a good part reaching its
destination, and a good part being induced away by favorable influences.
A common sense view of the question,
is that in the wireless system there
would still be required a conducting
medium. The deduction from the experiment of the salt saturated vapor is,
that the stata of the atmosphere pos-
essing great humidity is the electrical
conductor. The continual whipping of
the surface of the sea surcharges the
air with more or less salt, furnishing
the electrolyte needed to charge the
path. The current follows this path
until it meets the opposite pole. If the
power furnished is ample, why should
not the current cross the Atlantic ?
The Gulf stream has such a humid
stata overlying its waters. It is the
conducting path of storms across the
ocean, and this strata has been proven
to be surcharged with electricity.
,i It is a notable fact that all the long
distance experiments have been tried
near its influence. A matter of a few,
or few score miles, to reach this conductor would easily pass thru a saturated salt atmosphere, and be transmitted along this path. It is my belief that,if wireless telegraphy stations
were established as near as possible on
the Gulf stream, sufficient power used
to transmit the current, that this same
Gulf stream would serve the purpose of
a conductor as good^ as any cable.
The matter of distinguishing messages
and their privacy are matters ot detail.
If the theory is correct, duplexing and
quadruplexing will surely follow. The
present wire system being practically
duplicated, without the troublesome
wire, whose place is taken by the salty
humid strata of the atmosphere, which
is bounded on all sides by conditions
more or less insolative or possessing
greater resistance.
The current practically follows the
line of least resistance. Ships can
communicate anywhere off or on the
Gulf stream up to a certain distance,
due to the saturated salty atmosphere.
It is questionable if the wireless system
will be of much use commercially on
dry land unless the strata above us,
lying from 1600 feel up, can be tapped
with any degree of stability. Experiments in the exploration of the free air
by means of kites at the Blue Hill observatory, have shown that such a conducting strata exists, and when this is
tapped we will have wireless land telegraphy to possibly  unlimited distances.
The above theory appears reasonable
and will stand critisism.

SANDON, FEBRUARY 8, 1902.
Now that the Sandon City Council is getting things down to a business
basis it is time   for  them   to   make a
move to take over the water and light
plants.    The   city's  dealings   in the
past with the Sandon  Water &  Light
Company have never been satisfactory.
J. M. Harris abused  his  franchise in
many ways.    He has made a  practice
of refusing to pay his taxes  while  the
corporation owed a light account, and
the city has never been able   to get a
proper     settlement,    notwithstanding
that he has alwas charged the city more
for water and  light   than   the service
was worth.    The   bill   passed   by the
council on Monday night last amounted to $130.35  for fire protection  and
for lighting the city hall and  fire stations.    It is a well known fact that the
Water & Light Company's water supply is totally  inadequate  for   fire protection purposes ; as  a matter of fact
there is scarcely  enuf water in  their
mains to run the light plant.    On several mornings during the  recent cold
snap the pipes  were almost dry, and
had a fire broken out  within  the  citv
limits the building,  and perhaps the
whole town, would have burned to the
ground.     When  the insurance companies discover   these   tacts   the town
will find itself without insurance.    The
bank will  then  naturally be forced to
call in everything and the result will
be disastrous to local merchants.
The domestic service has also been
very unsatisfactory for some time back.
Many houses in the lower part of town
haye been without water altogether
recently because the mains were frozen
up, and the night service has been unreliable in all parts of the city for some
time back.
This state of affairs has been brot
about thru John Morgan Harris'
notorious Rabbit Paw case. As a
reprisal against him for closing down
their mine, the Slocan Star people
have shut off Harris' water supply and
the city suffers in consequence of a
quarrel to which it is in not a party.
Here is a state of affairs which
cannot be remedied too quickly. If
J. M. Harris cannot furnish the
service the city should take over
plant without delay. The Corporation
of the City of Sandon  has  no quarrel
with the Slocan Star' people and could
undoubtedly get all the water it wants
for fire, light and domestic services.
Under the "Water Clauses Act" the
city can expropriate the water plant
and settle for it under the "Arbitration
Act." With the water plant in its
hands, the city could make its own
terms for the light plant as the company would then be without power.
There should be no trouble in
floating a loan to take both plants
over, as the city is already paying .as
much for fire protection as would
furnish interest on a large proportion
of the purchase price and the profits of
the business under municipal ownership would certainly be large.
It is reasonable to suppose that if
the bonds were offered for sale to a
capitalist such as Byron N. White, for
instance, who has an interest in the
camp and is familiar with all the circumstances, thev could be sold with-
out the slightest difficultv.
This is a matter which the council
should take up right away. All the
circumstances are favorable tor driving
a hard bargain with Mr. Harris.
Edwin Farrer is playing a star
engagement in B. C. just now writing
lo\a!tv articles for the C. P. R. Farrer is well known to manv Canadians.
He gained prominence on the Toronto
Globe v. here he wrote commercial
union articles and on the New York
Sun where he wrote annexation litera-
teur at the time of Sir John s last campaign. The market for annexation
literature pinched out a few years ago,
and Farrer has since been working on
the loyalty line for the Canadian Pacific. Just at present he is devoting his
attention to that 50,ooo-acre coal reserve over at Morrisey, which he wants
to secure for his company.
The mode of procedure in these
land grabs is very simple. Farrer
writes special dispatches pointing out
the great danger to the British Columbia smelting industry of letting Jim
Hill into the Crow's Nest. He pic-
tuoes how Hill will haul all the coal to
Montana, thereby starving the Kootenay reduction works out of existence,
and he strongly advises the Dominion
government to display its loyalty by
presenting these remaining coal lands
to the C. P. R. so that the may not be
acquired by the community of interests.
He carefully refrains from insinuating
that the C. P. R. might also be purchased by Hill & Co. at any time, if
such has not already been done, and
he rings in enuf patriotism to make
the article go down with the ignorant
elector. These dispatches are wired to
newspapers all over the country free of
charge. Papers under the direct control of the railway, such  as the  Van
couver   Province   and  the   Wrinnipeu
Free   Press   invariably  publish  these
dispatches in  full,   making   large editorial   splurges  about    the    subject,
waving the old   flag   and   going into
canvulsions   about the   United  States
railway invasion.     Other papers   not
so completely under the control of the
corporation frequently publish the matter to fill up  space or earn  a pass on
the railway.    Quite a number of little
weekly papers such as  the Fort Steele
Prospector and the Cranbrook Herald
can always be depended on  to parade
C. P. R. literature  whenever it corner
up.      The   wholesale   publication   o(
these articles  is  supposed to   create a
feeling favorable to the  Canadian road
and allay uneasiness when a land grab
is being put thru  by the   government.
Clippings and copies of the papers are
also produced   around   the  lobbies by
grafter members such as Jim   Sutherland to convince   eastern   representatives that the people of the  west want
the railway to get just  exactly what it
is asking for.    When  all this is   done
and the railway gets  the   land  grant
the lovaltv crv   naturallv  dies.    Then
the C. P. R. makes a  traffic arrangement with the   Gneat   Northern   and
everybody is happy.
Such is the system of politics that
we have in Canada, and when you
come to consider how easily the public
is buncoed, the wonder is not that railway corporations occasionally grab a
few acres of land, but rather is it surprising that there is any land left for
anvbodv else.
Jim DiNS.MiiR says no government can make bricks without straw.
Jim's remark is not original, as lie
borrowed it from the Sheenevs of sev-
eral years ago. But with nothing but
a little dust to throw in the eyes of the
public, the B. C. government has
made several gold bricks in recent
years and Jim has been in on it once
or twice.
If this province still owned the
Crow's Nest Coal lands which Jim
Dunsmuir helped to give away to himself and others, or if it had a money
equivalent for the Vancouver Island
coal lands which his paternal projector kindly presented to himself thru
the agency of the British Columbia
government, its treasury would not so
closely represent a vacum.
Andrew Carnegie says that war
is barbarous, a blot on civilization, inexcusable under any circumstances.
Carnegie made a large bunch of millions selling armor plate and gun metal
to the United States navy. Incidentally, he had a few of his own workmen
shot. Andy is something of a barbarian himself.

Rudyard Kipling has been writing lies and hot air for the English
market for fifteen years and was counted a gcod fellow. Recently, in a fit
of absent-mindedness, he told the
truth. Now the "flannelled fools"
consider him beastly vulgar, doncher-
knaw. Rudyard should study his
market more closely. It never pays
to insult one's customers.
The gold production of Canada
last year was $28,000,000 and the silver porduction $3,000,000. This gold
and silver was all shipped out of the
country so that it would not interfere
with the ciicu'a ion of paper money
issued by chartered banks. Last year
Canadian banks had $66,000,000 worth
of paper money out.
The banks are permitted to issue
paper to the extent of their paid up
capital. That is to say, they may
duplicate their capital by borrowing
money from the public without paying
interest. The bills are merely a promise to pay. Their value is based on
public confidence and the bank is required to hold a reserve o( 15 per cent
in gold and Dominion noes to protect
tlie issue in case of emergencyr In a
panic the banks could not possibly re-
deem their notes in gold, because there
is not gold enuf in Canada to do so,
and the combined gold reserves of both
Great Britain and United States would
not half repay depositors.
Canada has no gold coinage of her
own and her silver coin is minted in
Manchester. Nevertheless her '<* ���*;-
tary system is on a gold basis If
Canada had a mint and all the gold
and silver mined in this country were
coined at home the bank's paper money
would disappear entirel inside of three
years. That is why the banks oppose
a mint.
A correspondent asks The Paystreak what the "Full Court" is anyway. WTe don't know exactly, but
presume that when the province's
judiciary gets on such protracted jags
that legal business has to be suspended
for a year at a time, then we have a
full court.
The Vanderbuilts have acquired
the Cadada Atlantic and blocked
Blairs scheme to extend the Intercolonial to Georgian Bay. Thus do the

In Manitoba the whole country

what is termed higher criticism of the
bible is sufficiently large to excite, il"
not alarm among the churches, at least
enuf tit attract considerable attention.
Perhaps a great deal more attention
than the general public considers it to
be worth. It matters little to the public what men do with their creeds or
how frequently or rapidly they change
them as long as the great moral principles involved are conserved and lhe
help of the church to an upward growth
of humanity is given, as it always will
be. This is strictly a moral age.
Whatever may have been lost in spirituality, often a term missapplied to superstition, is being gained in morality.
The theory of universal brotherhood
and eternal fatherhood is not being los*
sight of and that is the solid rock for
practical purposes. Humanity has
been left to the solution of its destiny,
and supplied, as it is, with the mater-'
ials most essential to a successful result,
there is not any reason to believe that
it will fail. That solution will best be
achieved by makiug the most of opportunities. The drift of humanity is
away from the abstract to the concrete
and the church is facing the necessity
of going along or being left behind.

& Zesson in Economies.
���,
The existence of the unemployed is
so common and familiar as to awaken
little or no intreest yet it is one of the
most remarkable economic phenomena.
That there should be people willing to
produce the wealth that all desire but
denied the opportunity, that men should
suffer because there are too many hands
willing to produce things they want,
is certainly remarkable. The paradoxical and unnecessary nature of the evil
naturally prompted many schemes anJ
plans for betterment. It is not only
when men are crowding the street and
moving about in search of employment
that there is an unemployed class.
There is lack of employment when men
have not an opportunity to work to
their fullest capacity. If men are confined to employments in which their
greatest productive capacity cannot find
'scope they are to a certain extent unemployed altho they may not be entirely
idle. The belief that the condition
arises from over-population has been
dispelled by the appearance of an unemployed element on the western continent.
