The Toronto News is really quite iiii-

ost offensive and intollerant organs of

:in, representing British Columbia iu
1© cabinet, and who was one of the
.1st aggressive opponents of the eoer-

The attempt last Wednesday upon the

fat Lonbet of France ns fhe two rulers
were driving together In Pnris, is particularly remarkable for one thing,
namely, that it is the first time that such
an nttempt hns been mnde upon the head
of a kingdom nnd the bend of n republic
at the same time. It emphasises th"
fact—pointed out nt the time of the murder of the late President McKinley, but
speedily forgotten by n thoughtless and
shallow nge—thnt these outrages nre not
prompted by nny desire for the welfare
of the people ns n whole, or by nny dislike of nristocracy in itself, but simply
and solely from nn insane nnd rapidly
growing hatred of nil forms of government, nil law nnd order. As a matter
of fnct, these kind of people nre generally cynically frank in expressing this
view. Yon enn henr it nt nlmost nny

Wo don't think it was a good way. If
some of tlio little birds speak true, the
main result of the change wns a sore
disappointment to the gang who were
principally instrumental In securing if.
And we have1 hoard few, very few, citizens speak of the new order of things
iu printable language, Nor can we find
it. iu us to bin me them, save for the
earlier apathy which rendered the innovation possible. Argue as you may, the
harbor is not n good plnce for n regalia.
To begin with, you stand all the time
because there is nothing to sit down on.
If you are on tlle .lames Hay causeway,
you stand, and your keen enjoyment of
the swiftly-following races is enhanced
by the t'uniultuons passage up ami down
on the road behind you of .street, ears,
automobiles and every kind of horse
vehicle, each with Its separate cloud of
dust. This unsouglll addition to the programme is occasionally varied by one of
the strenuous teredo has made the
danger a very real one. As for the new
wharves, they lack accommodation, not
having been built Cor fashionable sightseers, but for the handling of vulgar
No You cannot make the regatta in
ihe harbor the poyous pie-nic the regatta a I i'he Gorge was wont to be. For
instance, .vou took your lunch out to the
Gorge and had a gorge of your own
miller fliev green-wood tree, with your
friends and your wives—we mean your
own and your friends' wives, of course;
this is no Sii'ton-Monnon-iniinigrant
sheet—and your children all round you.
But! if you sit down and eat your lunch
in the middle of the .Tames Bay causeway, you will either get run over or
arrested. Possibly both; most probably
tho latter. For the low arrests n man
who hns no visible means of support; but
if his means of support are t'oo blamed
visible, it; arrests 1 ■ is 11 for that too. This
is what you read about iu the papers
sometimes, called "meeting the ends of
justice," Tho law is no respecter of
persons. A man with his mouth too full
of ham snn hvieh is just as offensive in
its eyes ns a man who has got no sandwiches nt all.
Another drawback in the chnnge
of the regatta from the Gorge to the
harbor is thnt it deprives n number of
people—of the clnss who need it most—
from making a little money out of the
celebration. For instance, mnny owners
of privnte hncks nnd express wngons
were wont to decorate their vehicles
tastefully with flags nnd bunting, nnd
turn nn honest penny taking pnrties out
to the Gorge on regatta dny. Not the
least attractive of that day's sights were
the long lines of decorated vehicles, each
carrying its happy loud of sight-seers.
We hnve frequently henrd strangers
comment on it with nprpovnl, saying that
it wos n sight tbat could be seen nowhere
else on the American continent.
And that touches tlie very root of the
matter. The regatta at the Gorge wns
Victoria's own. Any old wnter-front
'own can have a harbor regnttn, nud
most do. But the lovely wnlk or drive
tniougb the wooded roads, the bright
dresses nnd gay uniforms appearing und
disappearing amid the green foliage, the
stretch of silvery wnter lying betwen
!ts forest-covered bnnks and gay with
boats'of all descriptions, the whole rural
air of the scene removed from cramping
houses nnd hideous architecture—nil
these were Victoria's distinctive property; and men who hnd seen thc pretty
spectacle spoke of it with admiration
in far-distant pnrts of thc continent and
the Old Country. It wns n steady and
attractive advertisement in itself for Victorin, and it does seem n little bard that
the apathy of the majority of her citizens, nnd the rapacity of the minority,
should hnve combined to deprive ber of
her own peculiar celebration  feature.
Before leaving this part of the subject, we should like to commend the
strong opposition shown to tbe innovation by our worthy Mayor, and thc
steady support he received in his attitude from both the Times nnd the Col-
•onist. Tlie stand tnken by these two influential journals does them infinite
credit, nnd lends to the hope thnt, when
Empire Day comes round again, it will
see the regatta back nt the Gorge, with
the citizens strolling happily among tbe
trees, enjoying the races, the scenery
nud the fresh air; instend of being sented
in the sun on the rocks, like the serpent
iu the Bible, or bung like dish-rags over
a dusty stone wall.
That Water carnival at night wos n
tierce thing. In compnny with some ten
thousand other expectant souls, who
dreamed of Venice, gondolas, bright eyes,
rippling water und tinkling mandolins,
we went to the James Bny bridge to
look at—what? Three craft, gaily lit
up with Chinese lanterns, and two craft
not quite so gaily lit up with the snme
illumiiiaiits, wandering singly ami alone
iu aimless fashion upon the bosom of the
inky water. From time to time one or
other of tlle larger craft would hnve a
spasm and discharge showers of lire from
Roman candles, And they must have let
off nearly two dozen real skyrockets, at
the ascent of each of which the crowd
said "A-a-h!" as crowds always do. In
thc remote distance a band could be
heard, when its strains were not stilled
by the dnng of the street cars or the
boot of multitudinous devil-wagons.
lt was these same street cars which
supplied what was, to our mind, one of
the most weirdly attractive features of
that night's holy show—although tlie
Item wns not uown on tbo committee's
programme, For some unknown reason
the power thnt lights the cars went on
strike, while the power that makes them
move remained Cnitliiul to its duty. Thus
the public was treated to the uncanny
spectacle of ilark cars, a darker patch
on the dark night, crowded with people,
sneaking silently about the streets. The
effect was funereal to o degree, nnd
funny too.

much prnlse must be given for doing
their best lo help out a very gloomy

illuminated, especially tbe former,  ond THE WEEK, SATURDAY, JUNE 3, 1905.
the sight presented by these two tine vessels as they lay at their moorings, each
a hlaze of light from stem to stern, was
very striking. Both vessels also turned
on their searchlights, and directed them
alternately on the crowd, the principal
buildings, and on Capt, Vancouver's
gilded statue on the top of the parliament dome.
The Stage
But, with the exception of this assistance, the water-carnival was a deplorable fizzle. We don't kuow who was in
charge of it, but, should this meet his eye,
we would respectfully beg hiin to remember thnt a water-carnival is preeminently oue of those things which
should either be done excellently well, or
left severely alone. Had the fireworks
taken place on tlie harbor—the most fitting spot for them—instead of fetching
the unfortunate crowds nil the way out
to the Gorge in the dark, and the water-
carnival held in conjunction with them,
the show might have been a howling success.   As it was, it was only a howler.
To turn to the decorations. We make
all allowance here for tho discouraging
weather conditions which prevailed
right up to thc eve of the celebration.
But the appearance of fine weather
should surely hnve heen the signal for
a spontaneous effort on the part of the
whole town to get into its glad rags, even
though the operation would have had to
be hurried over. But the same dead,
sodden indifference which appears to
have hung like a pall over
everything connected with this year's
Empire Dny wns observable in this particular also. The city hall has three
flngstaffs, but its high-salaried denizens
could only summon up sufficient energy
to hoist a flag on one of them. Not a
dozen stores were decorated, and those
thnt were had, for the most part, made
only a perfunctory attempt at it. No
gay strings of flags or stretches of bunting hung across the principal streets, as
in former years. If ever a town went
out of its way to inform its visitors that
it wasn't feeling very well and didn't
care who knew it, thnt town was Victoria last week.
The programme at the Savoy for the
week commencing on Monday, the 5th,
is a very attractive one, as is only to Iv:
expected at this popular place of enter-
tainment. Leona Clifton, Beatrice Lome
and Alice Wilderman, who have been
delighting the crowded audiences with
their remarkable vocal talent, will con-
tuiue to please during the coining week.
Other strong features will be Piechtre's
Tyrolean quintette, nud a varied list of
other and attractive artists. There will
be a matinee at 3 this afternoon, somewhat of a novelty nt the Savoy, but one
which, it is said, has proved so successful' that it will be made a regular Saturday feature hereafter.

Robert Jamieson and his brother, Mr.
W. S. Jamieson. Extensive improvements, nre being mnde to the theatre itself, and, as to its attractions, it is hardly necessary to say that, with Manager
Jamieson still in control, they will be of
the same high order that has made the
house such a universal favorite. The

nightly thronging to its doors bear eloquent witness to the public's opinion of

Tbe citizens of Victoria should have 0
care that more general interest is taken,
and more general effort made, when next
Empire Day comes around. It would
only tnke two or three of such failures as
thnt just over to make Victoria's
annual public celebration a thing of the
past. The Twenty-fourth has always
been regarded publicly ns Victoria's special day, but she held it merely because
she was able to do it justice, not by nny
divine right. It is not enough to place
the arrangements of the celebration in
the hands of a few. Every man, woman
nnd child iu the community should unite
to do their utmost to bring the event off
in first-class style. Every preliminary
public meeting should be carefully attended, iu order that the best plans maybe adopted after the fullest discussion. It
means a little extra work, but what of
that, if you really care for your city and
your own welfare? You can have nothing really good without working for it,
in spite of all our Socialist friends say.
It is only fair to remark, in concluding these brief criticisms—in which wc
have simply voiced the comment of the
town which most people and papers nre
afraid to print—that, while we have not
hesitated to disapprove of the celebration
committee's judgment in the holding of
the regatta in the harbor, and other matters, we do them the justice to admit
that they worked throughout with the
utmost energy and frequently under very
trying circumstances—such ns Ihe threatening aspect of the weather up to the
very lnst, ami tlie annoying apathy of a
large number of the citizens who should
have known better. Plainly, tlie faults
of the celebration committee, we are glad
lo think, were faults of the bend, not of
the heart. They would have done better, if they had only known how. To
give thein the straight tip for their guidance in future celebrations is the object
of this gentle criticism.
As certain malicious reports bnve been
spread around town, Mr. Lapworth

There is something excruciatingly
funny about thc way a woman plays
bridge unless you nre her partner.
In these dnys of anaemic and pusillanimous journalism, when the average
editor writes—as King Agag trod—
softly, for fear of offending- some
susceptible soul among his advertisers, it is very pleasant to find
an occasional paper that is not
afraid to speak out. We disapprove of
the Vancouver World in a whole multitude of ways, but we extend to it our
cordial congratulations for the following
whole-hearted denunciation of the cowardly brutality of a community. Our
contemporary says:
T. H. Atkinson, druggist, of Ymir, left
the dock in tbe criminal court of assize
at Nelson yesterday without a stain on
his character. Mr. Atkinson was charged
with burning down his own premises,
but when the evidence for tlle prosecution wns all in the jury expressed itself
satisfied thnt there was no need to bear
the defence nnd the accused was honorably acquitted.
Discharged, but to what? To take up
anew the threads of n life which has
been ruined nnd broken, to return to a
desolate home which will never again be
entered by the girl who had ncccom-
pnnied him to the little mining town
nnd hnd shared bis struggles tliere; for
she, crushed by the trouble in which evil
tongues had involved her husband, threw
herself into the reservoir some weeks
Mr Atkinson, does not, however, in all
probability, owe the terrible disasters
which have overwhelmed him to falsehood's told with malice aforethought.
Those who set tbe story afloat and those
who repeated it with such additions that
it grew into nn accusntion of blnck crime
were actuated not by a desire to injure
tlie druggist and his family—some of
them  were possibly  the  man's  friends

and may have sat at his table—but by
the love of sensation, the delight of telling a spicy bit of news, the morbid pleasure in scandal. Mrs. Atkinson wns murdered by the same gossip which slew her

■ one admired the courage nnd honesty
the gentleman  who  dared   to  state
acts as be hnd found them.    Too long
the church  ignored   these   matters
attempted to feed the intelligent pur-
of the community with old dogmas
liich  they   lire  forced  to  admit  they
changed, under pressure of science,
lets nud advanced reason.    Admitting
the bulk of church-goers take what
given them and do not think for them-
■s. even iii advanced nge, they are
i  children   in   leading   strings.    You
to church  where there is no oppor-
uity for question or debate, Sunday or
k day, the church is so sacred (for
u v
God's use only) that it is not open for
humanity's use the balance of the week;
the book is sacred; tbe utterances from
the pulpit no one dare dispute; even tbe
speaker (is ordained), and so ull he says
must be accepted us gospel. Now, to
those of au inquiring mind these unfair
arrangements effectually preclude any
opportunity of inquiry or research, "Believe what 1 say, give liberally and question not," is what is required of the people. The finger of scorn is turned on
those who dure to think and reason for
themselves, uud the funny part of it oil
is that each ond every sect is fully persuaded they, uud they only, know it ull.
Well, enough un this line; the world advances in science, mechanics und art,
uud soon will iu politics, when tbe people rule themselves, yet in the realm uf
religion only are we prohibited by a
bigoted ond interested few from advance
of any kind. Friends, you cannot stop
tlie plans of God; if there are more
truths for His children to learn, for their
advancement. He will have them taught
whether you like it or no.
I propose to give your readers some
personal and other experiences to prove
existence after death, and other matters
ui a like nature, but before doing so I
desire to put on record a word of warning to those foolish, weak people wno
are only inclined to look into these matters for personal gain,
lu all lands and in all ages there have
bueu horu iuto this world of ours some
persons gifted with powers of olair-
audience (clenr hearing) uud clairvoyance (clear seeing); these people are able
to see and hear iu a way the ordinary
person is not; hence they are able under
proper conditions to receive and transmit
thoughts from both the living and the so-
called deud. Muuy of them do uot understand tbe extreme delicacy und the
vibratory lows under which they nre
operating, hence they often unconsciously err; und I regret to add that mnny unprincipled chnriataus feed on the credulity
of the public to gather wealth, thus prostituting one of tlie noblest gifts to a
lose purpose. Yet iu spite of ull these
present difficulties the fnct remains, and
has beeu proved beyond tlie perudwu-
ture of a doubt.
How to moke a living, iu this life, ami
wiuit awaits us beyond this life is a
questions ' that confronts ull. Economic
chunges now on us, will very soon solve
the first proposition, und when thut is
accomplished more time will be given
to the second, for the change from u class
nnd capitalistic system to co-operation
for the good of nil will curry away with
it so much of dogmatic driftwood tho I
the mnny will be freer,
A First Lesson at Psycoinetizing.
On invitation I attended o meeting in
a private house in Ontario. Tbe speaker
stated thnt it wus possible to so educate
one's faculties thut by tukiug an article
into the band be would be able to describe things connected with it. At first
1 thought him a fraud, o fool, but at tbe
end of an hour's talk I found I was the
fool; he knew, and I did not kuow, and
that wns all there was about it. At the
end of the lecture the friend who had
invited me there took out of his pocket
three small parcels of about an inch in
diameter; they were wrapped up in
paper and nothing to designate what wus
therein.   He usked Dr. , the speaker,
to choose one of them, which he did, und
closing bis bund on it nnd thinking n
moment he commenced ns follows:
"I urn going west, very fnr west; I
do not kuow those trees, they ore not
(he same as California trees; I know
that 1 am crossing a bike, and now crossing another lake, in a little, miserable
tub of a bout; now I nm coming to the
mountains and the show line; I nm crossing n rivulet on n log. Ah, I sec n plnce
where there bus been broken off a piece
of rock about Ihe size of a man's head;
this rock contains metal, but it will not
pay to work it; uud bnck of this, 100
miles, is another strata of the same mineral."
This tallied exactly with the description of the pnrty who hnd gone out to
the Slocnn nud discovered the mineral.
At u previous meeting my friend hnd
had n smnll piece of Hot rock pieced in
his bund and was told to try und keep
his mind passive. He did so, and when
called on to describe bis sensations or
impressions said:
"I am in n strange city, built strangely.
1 see o conclave of people, dressed differently to us; their language is different;
I hear music."
:This wos oil he got. The doctor theu
stated that the piece of rock he hnd in
his band wns from the City of Rome; he
himself hnd chipped it off from the place
when the people met nnd held their
musical entertainments; the rock bad
absorbed the sight and the sounds,
hence my friend being sensitive wus able
io receive tliem in Lis bruin und so give
them out.
Personally, 1 have proved this psyco-
metic work myself under favorable con-
uitions, and found it correct. My next
story Will be thut of the experiences of
a local Methodist preacher, us 1 bad it

Locnl members of the American Institute of Mining Engineers are already
busy gettiug everything in trim to secure
a magnificent reception to the members
of the Institute who will arrive here to
attend tbe convention uf that body in
this city early iu July, lt is due to ihe
efforts of the local members that this
most important convention of scientific
niiuiug men has been appoiuted to be
neld this year iu Victoria, ad too much
stress cannot be laid on the urgent importance of every citizen of Victoria ably
seconding the efforts being made to make
the eveut notable.
i'he Board of Trade has taken the
matter up with promptitude, aud, at a
meeting held ou Thursdny—at which Mr.
VV. Fleet Robertson, provincial mineralogist, and Mr. W. M. Brewer, M. E.,
both well-known members of the institute, were present by invitation—the following gentlemen were appoiuted a committee to draft a programme for the reception:
Messrs. J. A. Mara (chairman), G.
Gillespie, D. VV. Higgins, E. G. Prior
and Thomas R. Smith.
A representative of The Week interviewed tbe minister of mines ou Thursday with regard to tnis important eveut.
Air. McBride stated that his department
would iu every way second with energy
nil pluus looking to tue eutertuiuuieut of
tlie notable visitors, expressing the keen
appreciation felt, uot merely by himself,
but by the government, of the marked
significance the holding of this convention in the cnpital city of the province
conveyed, ad the effect it was likely to
have on the mining iudustry in British
Columbia. The government buildings
would be thrown open to the visitors, aud
suitable accommodation iu every way
provided for their deliberations.
lt is stated that there is a possibility of
the grounds at Carey Castle being opened
for a garden party in h.nor of the distinguished guests. This is a matter, '
however, which rests of course with Sir
Henri Joly, the Lieutenant-Governor.

One .1. S. Emerson, describing himself at; president of au organization;
known ns (he B. C. Loggers' Association, has been writing letters to the coast
press wil'h regard to the leasing of some
1(13,0001 acres of reserved timber lands
to the Western Canada Fulp & Paper
Co. by tlit* provincial government, Judging by these letters, Mr. Emerson, would
appear to be a person of wide and generous sympathies. He desires to protect
the people of British Columbia from being robbed cf valuable timber lands. He
also desires to protect the British capitalist in Ebndoni from being robbed by
having these valuable timber lands
foisted upon him when all the while the
said timber lands have got' no timber,
and are no good. Let no one' smile at
this; we are nil liable to lapses of memory. Mr. Emerson probably merely forgot—or trusted thnt tlie public hnd forgotten—whnt he wrote in his first' letter
to the Vancouver Province, when lie
wrote ltis second epistle to that valuable,
variable, and veravious publication.
On both these counts above referred
to Mr. Emerson goes for tho provincial
government with teeth and clnws. That
was to lie expected. All these honest
souls, moved by a single devotion to tlie
interests of the people, make it « rule to
go for the government. In this particular instance, it is part of the game
that has been ployed in certain logging
circles for some two years past'. We do
not say that it 'has all been played by
the B. C. Loggers' Association', but it
bus lieon played by loggers. We will
refresh the public memory on the subject, and then the public will be fully
able to judge of the noble nnd pntriotic
spirit in which the loggers are noting
and have acted.
Two years ago there was n surplus of
logs. Or Chore wns snid to 1h> one.
Everybody had , cut logs, including a
large number of people who did not
know anything nbout it, but had heard
there was big money in fho business,
The number of logs floating iu the wnter
wns estimated—by the loggers—nt from
forty to sixty million feet.   As n matter
of fact, there was less than twenty million feet, and two-thirds of that was of
no value; having been cut, as observed
above, by persons who did not understand the business. i
There was also a law prohibiting .the
export of logs. The loggers thought tlhe
time a good one to make a killing. But
the anti-export law stood in the way.
The obvious thing to do, therefore, wus
to get' it suspended, so that ithe pool-,
starving loggers could make a little easy
money. An agitation was started to
gain this end. The Vancouver World
and some other opposition papers took
the matter up, and the provincial government was first implored and then
threatened, in order to induce it to suspend the law made for the protection of
British Columbia's interests, in favor of
the poor, patriotic, starving loggers who
had bittern off more than they could
While the agitation raged, the loggers
ployed fhe next step in the game. They
opened up negotiations with, timber persons on Puget Sound. "Of course," said
the loggers to the timber persons, "we
have no sixty million feet of logs floolt!-
ing. That's all a bluff. But there is
quite that ilnounit and mare, too, standing in the bush ready to cut down and
float. We have ai pull, and can get the
export law suspended. We have the
wool pulled over the eyes of the people
of Britisli Columbiai nud their government, and we will cut fhe timber and
sell it to.you.   How much?"
The Puget Sound timber persons needed British Columbiai lumber in their
business, and soon cnnie to terms with
the patriotic loggers, who then returned
Columbia's interests, which beats in
every logger's bosom. Surely it can only
be this that has caused Mr. Emerson to
rush into print.
But why, in his first letter to the Vancouver Proviifce, on tiie 17th of Mny,
does he say that these leased timber
lands, while not suitable for pulp purposes, do yet "consist of valuable timber
for lumber," and that "the timber positively is of great value to the logger and
millmen," (is thnt where the shoe pinches?) nnd thnt they nre "valuable foldings?" And, having snid so wily does
he, n few days later, in a letter lo the
same paper, say of this same lease that
"over 75 per cent, of the bind embraced
therein either has no timber at all or the
timber thereon does not possess nny commercial value whatever, the lnnd being
either precipitous rocks or burned and
bare hills, or covered with brush and
scrub timber of no value."
These two quoted statesments are so
very contradictory, and the previous record of certain of the logging fraternity,
ns shown above, is so very unsavory,
that we have uo hesitation in publicly
demanding of Mr. J. S. Emerson whnt
he means by handing out such stuff as
this to the public. He does not support
these assertions with one iota of proof,
each statement is in staring opposition
to the other, and people are beginning to
make very unpleasant remarks about
motives. Have we, by any chnnce, a
Jekyll and Hyde in the logging business?
Or is Mr. Emerson merely insulting the
public intelligence for his own amusement?
In the meantime, it is very satisfactory
to know that the Minister of Finance,
NOTICE is hereby given thnt tho
reservation eoveriug Graham Island,
Queen Charlotte Group, notice of which
wus published in the British Columbia
Gazette and dated 30th January, 1901,
has been cancelled, and that Crown lands
thereon will be open to sale, pre-emption
and other disposition under the provisions of the Lnnd Act, on aud after the
21st July next.

See them the first chance you
get. You will find many other
things just as interesting in the
to complete the work of agitation and
secure the suspension of the act.
Things were going nlong swimmingly,
when some meddlesome persons, who
were not concerned in nny way with the
logging or timber trade, but who objected to tlie perpetration of so wholesale
nnd bnTe-faced a robbery upon British
Columbia, got hold of the details of the
little conspiracy. They collected their
evidence—it wns singularly complete,
nnd would make n big row if we were
to print it here—nnd placed it before the
government. Thnt august body examined it carefully, raised its eyebrows,
swore a little, and then came down on
t'hu poor, pntriotic loggers with flic
crushing announcement that the lnw prohibiting the export of logs would not be
suspended om nny consideration whatever,
It was n cruel blow. The Vancouver
World wept and raged, and the leaders
of i'he conspiracy went into spectacular
bankruptcy. But the government remained firm, and a 'most rascally raid
on the timber resources of this province
was nipped in the bud.
We print this little sfory—and it is a
truo one—in order that thc people of the
province mny understand, and admire,
tlio singlemiuded    devotion    to British
speaking publicly nt Vancouver last

tuat the government hnd entered into
an agreement in good faith with the English company, and was not going to be
either coerced or bullied into repudiation
of its obligations. This is the right and
high tone to tnke.

More railways eon verge in Grand
Forks than in amy other city in tlie
province. It iius three roads, th© C. P.
R. (Columbia & Western branch) which
was built into the Boundary in 1899, the
Grent Northern, and the Kettle valley
lines, constructed! during 1901-1003. The
Canadian section of the Greait Northern
is known no the V., V. & E..railway,
and is t'o be extended on to the coast.
The Kettle valley lines extend from, the
city to Republic, Washington. It taps
a rich mining country nt intermediate
points, and will subsequently reach
Spokane. The road was built by Canadian capital.
At Grand Forks is located' tlie smelter
of the Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting & Power Co., Ltd. It is one
of the most modern metallurgical plants
in existence, and is equipped with many
novel labor-saving devices. About 2,000
tons of ore are reduced daily into matte,
which is converted into blister copper.
The function of the converters is to
mia nu facturo blister copper, 98 per cent,
pure. This product is then treated dn au
eastern refinery, where the gold' nnd
silver values are ext'racted. The motive
power   of   the   smelter   is   electricity
Forks will likely be undertaken ut no
distant date.
Forty-five miles north from the city is
Franklin camp, whore large and promising oro bodies exisl. The surface showings aire little short of phenomenal, and
nt least 100 locations have been made.
The values are ini gold, silver and copper. The recent bonding of tlie Mc-
Kiinley mine, by George A, McLood, has
done much io attract attention to this
camp, which promises the coming summer to be the nieoon of the mining operator and expert.
The entire valley of the North Fork
and its nflluent, tho east fork is densely
wooded. From this region all the timber used to Grand' Forks is floated down
stream. On the upper renches the timber is especially abundant, and comprises thousands of acres of white pine,
«l)ruee, cedtor, bull pine, fir nnd tamarnc.
The character and extent of tlio forest
wealth alone would justify the construction of a railway. Tliere aro several
wnter powers 30 miles north.
At Cascade, fifteen miles oast of
Grand Forks, 3,000 Ir. p. has been developed on tlie Kettle river, and is transmitted to the towns of the district for
electric lighting purposes and supplying
the indues with power.

A Summer Story,
It was a warm, dirowsy sort of day,
and Stanley Raymond, lucky sou of a
successful man, found great comfort in
lounging on the grass beneath a big
tree, gazing idly across the sea to where
the Olympic range rose, blue and wfliite-
capped, in the hazy distance. There was
no breeze, and the gentle swish-swish of
the swell, breaking on tlie rocks below,
and the occasional whirring of the electric cars, arriving and leaving tlie park,
far away, wero tlie only sounds in the
delightful' semi-silence.
Stanley was not really thinking, although he had the air of thought; he
was occupied mentally ns the cows are
when they chew the cud, which as as
near to absolute rest as the brain can
attaint to in our waking moments. This
condition is very pleasant; it is the pure
contemplation of the philosopher; a state
in which the mind takes ou pleasing iui-
llhe best advantage one must be quite
comfortable." And he stretched himself
with an air of great satisfaction.
"You may be right," she said, smoothing her ruddy-brown hair with her
pretty liands-in the way young girls do
it—and smiling nt him, "but you look as
if you were nearly asleep."
"No, no," he replied, "not' asleep, but
contemplative. Will you not sit down
here? No, not there"—for the charming
little stranger had made a move towards a spot where he could not have
seen her without straining his neck—
"but where I can see you."
Tlie girl laughed and slid on the
ground near, and in front of liim. "You
are very cool," she observed.
"I am trying to keep so," said he,
"But you must not think me rude, It
is a duty we owe to give each other
pleasure—when it is not much trouble,
Of course, we nre strangers, from t'he
point of view of Mrs. Grundy, but what
docs that matter? Here we are, near
each other, and we may as well make
the best of it,"
pressions of the surroundings, animate
and inanimate, but is not put to tlie
trouble of understanding—or trying to
Stanley had been lying there on the
edge of the litt'le cliff for perhaps an
hour when at last, footsteps, very light
on the green grass, heralded the approach of possible interuption to his lack
of occupation. He did not move his
head to see who or what this intruder
upon his contemplation might be; he
hoped, sleepily, that he, she or if would
pass by. But ho was disappointed. The
intruder came nearer and. nearer, almost
fell over one of luis long legs, trailing in
the grass behind him, gave a little cry
of alarmed surprise, and (hen said, in a
very sweet voice, "I beg your pardon; I
did not see >ou."
Stanley lifted' his head lazily nnd
glanced in the direction of the voice.
"Please do not apologize," said he, "1
did not see you either." Then, been use
the intruder was a very, very pretty girl
and because there was a look of shy
amusement in: her lovely blue eyes ns
1'hey met his, he smiled in a friendly and1
encournging manner,
"I wns walking along and thinking,"
sho observed, apparently by wny of further explnnntioii.
"Do try it sitting down," said Stan*
ley. "I hnve been thinking, myself, nnd
I have been enjoying it very much. I
know from experience that to rhduk to
The girl ;auglied again—a delightful,
musical laugh. "You do not belong to
Victoria?" she hazarded.
"Not I. Victoria belongs to mc—for
the time being. I mean"—as the blue
eyes opposite him grew round—"I mean
that it belongs to me in tlie sense tliat I
see it, I live in it at present, and I
enjoy it.   Therefore if is mine."
"I see.   Are you au artist?"
"Or a writer?"
"I wonder what you are!"
"Very nice of you to lie so interested
in me—." But the musical laugh in-
tempted' him, and he came to the point
reluctantly. "Well, I suppose from a
girl's point of view I am a very useless
young man."
"A girl's point cf view?" she queried'
with a little wrinkle on her white forehead.
"It wns Eve, you know, who got
Ailani driven out of Eden," said Stanley.
"Since then all the daughters of Eve, intent on mischief, have endeavored to
make men work."
"Oh. You mean you do not do anything?"
"That is about it."
"And do you not think thai a man
should work at something?"
"No," said Stanley, with conviction.
"Not' unless lie has to work. There nre
too many men working hard to get work
to do, for •others, who need not worry,
to get into the game andl make the competition harder. I think it most unfair!"
"But you must do something?"
"Not in the ordinary sense of the term.
1 live, 1 dress and undress, I travel a
little, 1 eat aud think—as 1 was thinking
this afternoon—nnd, someday, I may fall
in love."
"I hope she will make you work," said
ihe girl,
"Heaven forbid! May 1 fall in love
with you'.'"
"Absurd," said she. "Vou do not even
.(now my name."
"What have naints to'Jo with it? Hut
tell nie yours?"
"My name is Melila Smith."
"1 like Melitu—Melitti—Melita—it
sounds sweet, und suits you," said he.
"And as for the other—that eau be
"I expect it will be," she said, "soiue-
ilay." He blue eyes wandered over the
"My name," began Stanley, iu order
lo bring the truant eyes back into focus,
"is Stanley Raymond. Ought we uot to
shake bauds on tbe introduction?" The
girl laughingly put her slender hand iuto
nis, und he kept hold. "Tell me, do you
not like my name?" he asked.
"Stanley? Yes, but it is the name of
a man who did something, isn't it?"
Oh, bother! Think of Melita Raymond?" he added in a very soft voice,
aud lingering over the first name. "May
1 fall iu love with you?"
No," she said, drawing her handi from
his light clasp. "1 am afraid 1 could
not make you work."
"What does that matter? You could
be idle, too.   1 am sure you like me."
"Yes, you are a very   handsome boy,
and nice to talk to."
"Boy, indeed.   1 am twenty-three."
"Yes?   1 am only seventeen, but I am
wiser than you."
"Ah—wisdom! It was that that caused
the trouble—witli Adam nnd Eve, you
know. Whnt availeth wisdom? Remember the lilies of the valley!"
"I thiuk of them when I look nt you,"
the girl replied, with a smile that emphasized the existence of several nice
dimples. "You toil not, neither 'do you
spin—but you are beautiful."
Stanley laughed, "Aud you—you are
just lovely," he said, and reached out
his hand towards her. She placed hers
in his nnd smiled.
"You are the sort of boy," she remarked, "whom any girl would love—a
little. But no sensible girl would do
more than that."
"A little is better than nothing," he
said. He felt very happy and very comfortable, and it was a very sleepy afternoon. Except for those conditions it
could not have happened. But so it was
—Stanley fell asleep.
He confided the story, some months
later, to an incredulous audience of one
at his club in Portland. "I hnve never
yuite forgiven myself for two reasons,"
he concluded. "One reason is that
while I was still on the verge of sleep
nnd just sufficiently awake to have an
idea of what was passing, I bad a distinct impression of a charming face
bending over me nnd coming nearer and
nearer until two soft lips touched mine
—nnd a fellow likes to be quite awake
when that sort of thing happens. The
other reason is that, although I tried
quite hard, in my Idle way, to find
Melita, I never set eyes on her charming
self again."

ftiu fo where the thriving city and camp
1 Phoenix now stands. This was fifteen
■ears ago, ankl Mr. Sulzberger still
|»kes his tonne here, being the father
the camp, and is the only mayor
phoenix ever had;, now holding .his sixth
|;rm. Without trails or wngon roads,
li say nothing of railways, prospecting

frmination to keep it aldvo till capital
Iiould see and appreciate the dormant'
l;eatness of the possibilties liere in a

That summer of 1901 n few otiher
Irospectiors' also went over these hills,
hdl on July 21st the now world-famous
J.nob Hill and Old Ironsides claims
(ere located by Henry White and Malt

Iiunberger being interested in the Idaho,

kits   of   heart-breaking   waiting.   Im
|q. W. Rumberger, Mayor of Phoenix
Ji95, Jay P. Graves, who had lost his
111 in the collapse of the realty boom in
Ipokane, became interested, aud it was
lie bcsC thing that   ever   happened to
Ihoenix or   the Boundary—and   some
IiiinJj to British Columbia.   Mr. Graves
Ivterested Eastern   capital,   and began
lie development on   the   Old Ironsides'
mid Knob Hill   that   hns   made   that
lucltus of t'he Granby group the great-
jil, copper producers in Canada.   It re-

I'Thiis faith, witli the other requisites,'
Ir. Graves had iu: full measure, and1 its
1st proof is tliat those who joined with
■n, to the last man, have made or will

fer regarding this,    It Ls said' that no

.   In the dull times of mining in
Itish Columbia, when silver and cop
per went down, and on all sides mines
were ceasing operations, the Granby
mines kept working steadily, and were
in (fact the backbone of the mining industry.
To-day the Granby Co. emiploys more
men, has the largest smelter, the largest
pair of ore crushers, the largest air com-
pressing plant, nnd is the best' thought
of generally of any copper producer in
the Dominion.
Then tliere are the Montreal & Boston, the Snowshoe and the Gold Drop
mines, also located in and adjoining the
town of Phoenix. Although not worked
so extensively in the past', up to ten
months ago having been closed' for two
or three years, they are acknowledged to
be only second to the Granhy mines in
Is it any wonder then that the people
of Phoenix have the faith tliat endure?
in their townl—when also, there are'
niuimibers of other large properties at the
doors of the place that only await financing to place themi dn tlie same class-
as those mentioned above?
It is not an exaggeration to assert
tliat within a mile of the city hall of
Phoenix there is ore enough to last for
50 years at the present rate of extraction—low grade ores, it is true, but ores
from which a profit cam be extracted
when the volume is sufficiently large, as
has been demonstrated.
James J. Hill, president of the Great
Nortlkern, thought the mines of Phoenix
were important enough to spend a million or two in building a branch/ line last
year to secure a share of the tonnage.
The C. P. R. spent millions in reaching
Phoenix, and has taken millions out. For
some three years the income of tlie O.
P. B. from the Granby Company alone
was at fhe rate of a thousand dollars per
day—making tllie Phoenix branch probably the best paying piece of trnck on
its entire system.
Phoenix and its environs has a population of about 1,500 persons. Tlie town
was incorporated! iu the fall of 1900, and
las a debt of only $8,000, which is being reduced every year. It has a goodi
public school, five church' edifices and
one of t'he best conducted general hospitals in the province. Of course, the
place would not be complete without
that 'modem adjunct, the weekly newspaper, and even its enemies acknowledge
that there is nio better weekly paper published iu British Columbia than the
Phoenix Pioneer—of this, however,
others nre more competent to judge than
the writer.
When the foregoing fuel's nre remembered', together with the fact that labor
troubles are unknown here, is it any
wonder that the average man, in visiting
Phoenix, and noting the general appearance of faith in the place, coupled with
the belief that the failh is well founded,
himself becomes an enthusiast as to its
iif possesses an energetic and enterprising population of about 2,000 people.
The growth of tho eity has been syn-
chrowous with the development of the
tributary mineral and agricultural resources. Prosperity (here 'has no iha'ltitog

the Boundless Boundary
The Largest producer of eopper»Gold  Ore  in the Province.
By Percy P. Godenrnth, Travelling Correspondent for the Week
The "Boundless Boundary" to-day
stands pre-eminent in the mining districts
of the province for its production of
copper-gold ores. Its aggregate tonnage
exceeds any other division, as also .the
amount of invested capital In Us mines
and smelters. The largest deposits of
copper-gold ore in the world are found
in the district, together with some of the
richest argentiferous nnd auriferous
veins. It is a wonderfully mineralised
country, yet in the infancy of its development, and in comparison with many
older districts lias already to its credit
more successes. Certainly it has, by
reason of its greater shipping facilities,
outstripped nil others in ore output.
The Boundary mining division (popularly, although not oftlicnlly called) embraces that portion of the province included between  the  north  fork of  the
Kettle river on tlie enst, tbe main Kettle
river on the   west,    the   International
boundary on the south,  nud extending
northward about 20 miles, in nil some
400 square miles of territory, drained by
the Keltic river and its numerous tributaries.   Topographically the district consists of n series of low   rounded   hills,
greatly iu contrast to thc    precipitous
rugged peaks of the Kootenays, having a
general northerly and   southerly trend,
and seldom reaching an altitude of over
5,000 feet above sea level, except in the
northernmost mountains, where tbe peaks
are higher.   While the mountains nre not
rugged, prospecting has not been easy, on
account of tho covering of drift which
conceals   the rocks over   a considerable
portion of the surface, and nlso on account of the complex geological structure
of tbe district.    According    to R.  W.
Brock, of the Dominion Geological Survey, eruptive rocks, including granites,
greenstones, lavas (and    associated material) and various intrusive dykes, hove
the widest distribution.   More or less altered   sedimentary    rocks    (limestones,
nrgillites,    quartzites),    together    with
more   highly    altered    metamorphosed
rocks, including serpentine, are met with
in all parts of the district; but do not, as
a rule, have large dimensions in    any
place, being usually nothing more than
inclusions of older formation caught up
in the intrusive rocks.
Charles Deitz, still a resident of the
Boundary, is generally credited with being the first prospector to invade and explore what is yet termed tlie Boundless
Boundary. He came in the fall of 1857,
hunting placer and prospected nloug
Boundary creek. The first mineral claims
to be staked were the Eagle on Hardy
mountain, overlooking tlie city of Grand
Forks, nnd the Victorin and Washington
group on Rock creek. These locations
were mnde in 1884.   \V. T. Smith staked
the Nonsuch in Smith's camp two yenrs
later. Thc years 1890-1 saw the first
real influx of prospectors, and shortly
Copper, Deadwood, Greenwood, Phoenix
nnd other camps came into existence.
Not until railway construction- took
place and the Canadian Pacilic built the
Columbia & Western branch, tapping the
camps at a cost of $3,000,000, In 1899-0,
did development forge ahead. The last
live years have wrought wonders. Immense sums of money have heen expended in opening up the mines and in tlie
construction of reduction works at
Grand Forks, Greenwood anil Boundary
Falls. While the British Columhin
Copper Company has played ils share, it
is to the Granby Consolidated, Mining,
Smelting & Tower Company that the
greater credit is due. This concern hns
done more than any other mining corpor
is company skillfully and well. The
Montreal & Boston Copper Company, recently reorganized ns the Dominion Copper Company, is at the present moment
in a transitory state. It owns some of
the largest mines in the district.
Regarding the low grade copper-gold
ore bodies in such camps as Phoenix,
Wellington, Summit an* Deadwood, a
heavy initial outlay of capital is necessary to facilitate the economical reduction of these ores to accomplish the desired end of mining and treating the
maximum tonnage of ore per man employed. With tlie successful companies
in the district at the present time, this
expenditure has been along the lilies of
large rock crushers, handling blocks of
ore which were formerly broken by hammers; improved methods of loading cars,
steam shovels and automatic ore charging at the smelters. To such nn extent
have these labor-saving appliances been
carried by the Granby Company, that
without doubt to-dny, from the unbroken
ore iu tlie mines to the copper ingots
from the converters, they handle the
largest tonnage of ore per mail of any
copper mine in the world, As far as actual smelting capacity goes, tlie Granby
is treating,' per day, the third    largest

the affairs of the compnny, but Mr.
Graves, oue of the busiest financiers' of
the Falls City, still retains a general
supervision, though the real management
is entrusted to the hands of A. B. W.
Hodges. Frederick Koffer. the manager
of the Britisli Columbia Copper Company nt Greenwood, lias been in tlie
saddle longer than any other resident
manager, and has guided Ihe destinies of
amount of copper ore on llic continent
with its six filrnncos. Sometime this
month two more will be in operation, anil
before the end of the year n third will
be added, bringing tlle capacity up to
3,000 to ,'{.500 tons per day. At the
present time the Granby smelter ships
to the refineries 1.5(10,(1(10 lhs. of copper
per month.
While it is impossible to give exact
values of the low grade oris, a conservative figures approaches1 the following;
Copper li/i> to l%th per cent.; gold. $2;
silver, 25 cents per ton, Figuring copper at 15 cents, this gives $ti.7f> per
ton. Mine managers are reticent to give
exact cost of mining, transportation ami
treatment, but it. comes well within the
and Midway will likewise be dealt with.
It would take pages anil pages of The
Week lo outline only the numerous camps
and their possibilities, and Ihe next
instalment on the Boundary will hnvo
something to say regarding llic high
grade mines.
Before concluding the present sketch,
a word might lie said regarding one of
tiie Boundary pioneers who has plnyed a
prominent part in the development of tho
agricultural and horticultural resources-
William Henry Covert, of Grand Forks.
He ciiinc to the country, from across the
line, long before any of the now numerous towns, mining camps and smelters
had come into existence, and located n
homestead near Carson.   For nearly, \\
decades helms toiled and filled 820 ncn

beauty,  unacquainted  with tlie fertilij
of their own  resources,  to  the cnlniil
ment of perfect loveliness.   Mr. Gove]
was by no means a young man when ll
drifted into the Boundary to start li|
afresh.    Wilh $00  -on'owed money

Concerning Camping
Cottages, Clothes, Circuses,   and Expensive Simplicity.
By   "Babette."
Deor Madge:—Yes, I certainly would
pay Victoria a visit in June if you want
to see it nt its best, it is nn ideal spot
to spend the summer. The tennis and
croquet season is now in full swing, aud
the boating, which 1 know how you dote
on, is perfectly glorious. Well, could it
be anything else, in a place with such
natural beauty as the Gorge'/ Then, if
you really decide to camp during July
and August, there are any number of
nice little cottages to be had in easy
reach of town. Yes, 1 do think it is
much nicer to have a cottage, and you
can fit it up so well. Now, at a small
expense I see Weiler Brothers are offering great bargains in kitchen f uruisMnigS'
this week, and I don't think you would
find it nt all difficult to fit up tlie cottage
for the sum, you mention. I was greatly
amused nt n young newly married couple
who happened to bo buying their kitchen
furniture, etc., wnen I was in there; they
really had a most interesting assortment;
when I left, I could just picture the little lndy in her nice new kitchen with nil
her clenn, bright-looking utensils nbout
her, for I think she hnd every imaginable contrivance for saving labor. 1
noticed a number of most inviting hammocks and nice camp chairs, not the old
kmd we used to hnve to sit bolt upright
in, like sticks. 1 am sure you lire interested in getting Helen's outfit. I
think girls when they first come from
school oppreointe every little bit of finery
they hnve. I wisli ns they grew older
they were ns easily satisfied. I noticed
n gown the other dny which 1 thought
most smnrt. especinlly for a young girl;
it wns blue linen embroidered in white—
a conventional design of daisies and hay,
.'..girdle to match, also collars and cull's.
With this was worn a white "btvbie"
hat. This dress was of course embroidered by hand, uud I nt once thought
of tllie beautiful work you do. This style
of trimming is being used a great deal1.
Dresses of linen, muslin, and in fact amy
plain material heavily embroidered in
linen floss tire really most suitable for
summer wear, especially for the street
and morning wear.
I don't think tllie shops' have ever beeu
more tempting than ail' present. I looked w'iithi longing eyes to-day alt some
muslin de sole with a silk stripe heavily
brocaded with sprays of roses, all in
white, this made up with the niew
Spanish, silk (nee, to lunitch, worn mt
present, would make u most dainty
frock. It is hard to choose between so
many attractive lining* displayed for ain
evening dress, orepe d'e chliue and'
ectliiene, or a very fine voile are I think
tlie most suitable.
I noticed far tlie first time to-dny silk
in double width in nn entirely new shade
or sllmdes, 1 should say, blending most
beautifully in colors of clove grey, mud
a delicnlte rose pink.
I am glad to see Mere are collara to
all the frocks and blouses tiliis yew.   I
thank it is a blessing, ns there are set
very few tlunt enn wear the nondescript
low neck. All the stocks tiro iiglM'-fit-
ting, ond with many of the Shirt-waist
suits stiff collars, not very high, are
Yes, tan slices arc worn a groait ibsil
tills season for ordinary use. I notice
James Maynard, of Douglas street, is
well prepared for t'he rim on them. His
patten* lealhhsr slippers and shoes aire, I
think, exceptionally good for the price.
Tlie town is beginning to settle down
after the annual celebration of the 24th. '
most of tlio visitors from the surrounding eounHry have returned to tlioir
homes, but 1 must mot forget tlie circus.
Oh, tilie excitement tliat prevailed
nimongst the younger generation oil Monday. I was very much amused, but iif
was net unmixed with pity. At one of
our restaurants where I happened to be
having lunch a family consist ing of two
women and edgthit children were nt the
next Cable; tlie children, which' I think
ranged from about seven yenrs to probably six months, could not be persuaded
to cat or even to sit still, as first oue
would want to know where the circus
"was of," and" how to get to it," then
another with equally ns many questions
till I think out of sheer desperation ((lie
mothers got up to wend their wny
through thc crowd Ho get seats, I Was
quite coweeimed about Mtem, they looked
so tired befcro tlie excitement began. 1
wondered if they over got home again.
The crowd nt the evening pcrfoirni'alnee
was even worse tlhain in the afternoon.
Ohio poor nuvnl I saw fighting lias way iu
—accompanied by two Indies—iiad his
conlfc sleeve ripped up by some one pnsli-
ing to get hi nihtand of Mm, much to litis
indignation. However, after much
scrambling wc got in and safely sea tied.
But you know they do enjoy it all, at
l'.'.iMi', 1 did. Mind judging from the number of merry little groups about us all
contentedly calling paammts ''and sugared
popcorn, wlinalil deliglit Mile 'heart of the
young. Tho balloon maim willli his huge
bunches of these fascinating baubles
seemed to do a rushing business. One
prop little, mnikl weeping bitterly arous/ed
nny sympathy, and on enquiring the
(,'iiiiKe of liier tears, she simply pointed to
a llLttl red spot in the nir. Words could
not express such sorrow.
I was gravely told1 at dinner Mi© other
nCgth.fi by a bronzed giant; who tas been
(lomewliBue outlandish with an uupro-
lvottnicenible mini© for over s'o many
yeans (hat lie was glad women were going hack to ai simpler style of life alnd
liiatmers, tints idyllic theory being based
on the fact that some of us are plaiting
our trasses instead of frivolously friz-
ziuig and coiling and pulling them.
Clearly my hcligiilbor was of Mitoso wdio
a<ssoeinito the plait and the plain muslin
frock (dear expensive things!) and a cer-
tinilii' uneoniproniisiug type of henvily-
fnogged blue serge gown with their
mothers, und I verily believe that tluey
attribute to t'lto wearers every virtue
which women naturally lack, and would
seek (o disguise for obvious renisons dill'
Ul'Jey possess them,.
Of course Micro is n vutst amoumt nf
teinpernau'enlt in chillies, but Hie deductions niusii! be itaiwiii from the Intent
tendencies, and mot from such boacrete
uud obvious details as serge and'bnaids,
however tnini. Personally 1 have written down ihtilf a dozen wouieni of our
acquaintance, whom I ihkid not 'hitherto
suspected of 'tlhe train', ns slovenly and
tacking in taste, because they liavc in-
sisted on showing an inch or two of
bare, and in some cases brawny arm
betwixt their dhiiily elbow frills nnd
imni'iiculiiit'c suede gloves1. The female
elbow is rarely beautiful enough lo
merit' exposure, and failing tlie ability to
keep one's glove properly rucked, over
I'he offending point, there is a great
deal lo bo snid for the long, tight wristlet of laee, lviilclil Calm be lacked' into the
short sleeve's, and removed1 un occasion
demands. At tine same dininar parity,
after we had .returned to the drawing-
room, one of the guests was persuaded
to play a few selections on the piano.
And what music, Madgo! 1 really believe I. 'have'never listened' lo snub delightful um'erpretat'ions of the old masfr
its; verily the lady performer (I'm' such
it was) i's an artist, Of course a good
iiiistruni'iint has a great deal to do with,

here I must; add ittalt the piano an this
occasion was one of n most perfect tone,
I naturally enquired of my hostess

How little the white man. especially
tne majority of those of us who go forth
as missionaries lo "convert the heathen,"
comprehend the Chinese character! To
the student of Chinese institutions and
the Chinese themselves, it seems outrageous presumption, for the truth is thnt
Ihe Chinese nre without doubt Ihe most
religious people on the globe. Their
religion is a very pnrt of themselves, nc-
ceplnl without discussion from birth, The
veriest pauper, from a worldly point of
view, who lives on one of the hundreds
of sampans filiating before Canton, will
deny himself in order that he may perform a particular religious duty. There
are no people save the Moheniniednns
thai so completely live up to (lie faith
they profess. China has no divergent
churches, no wrangling apostles, there is
the one creed, of thousnnds of years
standing, to which all yield allegiance,
and to which all pin a faith that continues unto death incontrovertible. Now
nnd again we bear of a "converted"
Chinaman; bill 1 never saw one tllat had
really broken from the faith of his
fathers who was not Ihe less trustworthy. In n considerable experience

i ing around to the rear and blowing it
' over the target, with changing lights
and n tantalizing mirage in which the
target blurs and dances and swims like
a live thing, the mnn who keeps on hia
target and runs up a good.score must
rely on more than native skill nnd n
clenr eye. Your guardsman keeps by
his side n leather case, stocked as well
as that of a country surgeon, nnd he
uses barometer, thermometer and micrometer constantly. Good eyesight, good
nerves with which to hold n rifle immobile nnd sights nligned on the bull,
nre but the foundations of good shooting. The expert knows to u nicety the
almost iinperceptibe pressure of the
forefinger that will release the sear
notch and launch ihe bullet when both
brain and finger are ready. He keeps
his rifle clean as his watch, and with
blackened sights that bafiie deceptive
sideliguts. Ho uses a peep sight that
is mathematically correct, consults elements and instruments unceasingly,
raises his sight a hair's breadth by a
delicate micrometer, changes his shot in
inches by moving his wind gauge a line
breadth to one side, brings to his natural
ability to bold his sights on the mark
the leverage of his rifle sling—a valuable and serviceable- adjunct officially ignored until this yenr by the firing regulations of the regular services—nnd from
the written records of weeks finds the
elevation for his sighting shot. His
score book shows the conditions of wen-
tbeir nnd light, record of barometer nnd
thermometer, position of tbe range fings,
and tne hand of the wind-clock dial,
every change in elevation nnd wind, the
maker and date of his ammunition, and
tlio exact location of ench shot on the
tnrget. It is true that in the field lie
would hnve but his rifle nnd ammunition, but the schooling of the range
would undoubtely help him to bring
down bis man where others buried their
shots in the ground or fntilely fired over
the heads of the advancing groups. The
rifleman who enn with utmost unerring
certainty change his sights or so alter

hnnd corner of n tnrget more thnu n

successfully aid his comrades on the firing line.—Lieut. Prank E. Evans, in
