lish speaking nations. In all her em
bassles instructions had been received to
thwart the Aii-.li>-American understanding. A prominent diplomat, who is inti-
iniilely acquainted With the details of the
negotiations of the past few years, said to
a reporter of the Associated Press:
"In any arrangement looking to a working agreement between Kngland and the
United Stales, Russia sees the defeat of
her dearest projects. 1 believe her intense
activity in China is to no small extent due
to her fear that Anglo-Saxon power, once
le-lizcd, will sweep everything before it iu
the far east. Dreading the rapid realization "f this nightmare she is making hay
while the snn shines, in- the meanwhile
intriguing to the utmost to tie the h ids
uf those who are working to materialize
Anglo-Saxon sentiment.
"The latest evidence of this is in the
Alaska affair. Though, strictly speaking,
it is a matter of international polities and
would have been sctlled long ago if left
solely to (lre.it Britain and the United
States, Russia has managed to suggest
motives never dreamed of by America, by
distorting facts It is impossible for me
to divulge exactly how, or to what extent
Russia got her paws into the dispute. But
the attitude of her press, oflieial to the
core, ia quite sufficieir to show her motive."
The report that Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the
premier of Canada, and L. H. Davics, minister of murine and fisheries, are to come
here in regard to Alaska is thought by tlio
colonial office to lie quite probable, but
untiling is known definitely of the matter.
Hoth there and at the embassy of the

of rather warily.
The caustic remarks of Sir Charles Tupper, formerly Canadian high commissioner,
in an interview with a representative of
the Associated Press, held with him August 18, when "he said the United States
were purposely delaying the settlement of
the Alaska dispute on account of thc pecuniary benefit accruing to miners and
coast cities through the delay and had refused to have the boundary delimited, as
was being done in Venezuela, created considerable dissatisfaction at the United
States embassy.
lt was claimed there that 8ir Charlies
Tupper quite misrepresented the facts,
that the dilatoriness was entirely due to
the Canadians, It was also said that his
declaration that the commission proposed
hy the United States provided for no
umpire, was a deliberate evasion as the
fact is (he United Stales' proposal included an umpire, to he chosen by both sides
from North America. Though this was
not committed to writing, it was thoiough-
ly understood. The hitch came through
the absolute refusal of the Canadians to
accede, they insisting upon a Kurope.in
It may be said that the impresion exists
that Canadian politics are chiefly repan*i-
ble for the Alaskan impasse. This is not
only the American idea, but it obtains
among some of thc British officials, though
most of the latter are Inclined to believe
the United Statea should make vast concessions, in order to convince the British

'Ilout picnic lime, at Sunday school
L always know the Gulden Bute,
An' always I'm the fiisi to shout
The text Ibe minister gave out,
Each week get a picture card
For being go*>d ; Its awful hard,
But dad he bauds mo out ii dime
For ev'ry one, 'hunt picnic lime.
There'* fellers in my class 'at swears,
An' stay away some dnys, an' wear
01' dirty olothes t" Sunday school;
You bet 1 don't; I uiii'l no tool.
I brush my clothe* and comb my hair
An' I'm the very Ihst one there.
Ter sass your teacher is a crime—
At any rate, 'bout picnic lime.
Some tellers tease the little girl-,
An' steal their j-nin, an* pull their curls
But that ain't uiTitliTimnly, so
1 never do bui Ii tl.in-_s, you know.
I always know the questions, an'
1 make believe ter understand
An' 1 say a Utile rhyme
That teacher like.**, 'I out picnic time.
Onr teacher's name' Miss Nnttlewed,
An' bad I'oys Call her ••.Miitionhead,"
Which isn't nice, because she takes
A lot of trouble for our takes.
An' saves our wicked little souls,
An' on our head heap. boTnin' coals;
An' so I love my teacher—prime—
Especially 'bi ut picnic lime!
—Richard Slillman Powell.
The veriest rot is appearing in   the
opposition press in regard to the
repealing of the eight hour la*-, Thr
attempt to r(pcal this measure means
political suicide for any party undertaking it
The strike instill ou in the Slocan
and it behoves all true working-ten to
stay away from this section, until
the present labor trouble is settled
There is no undue bard feeling between
mine managers and miners and it is
hoped their former good relations will
soon be resumed. In the meantime
the 6ght is still on aud working men
are warned to keep away.

Now that the   management of thp
Noonday mine have not only met tin-
payment on the liond on that property
but have also bought outright, in
addition thereto, a one fourth interest,
it is to be hoped that tin; Nelson
Miner will stop its senseless cackle
about this mine and its management.
Because tbe management of the Noon-
day mine would not be forcid inlo
that political association, masquerading
under the name of tlie ''Silver-Lead
Mine Owners' Auooiatioa", this
paper, which pose3 as thr champion of
the aforesaid association, has seen fit
to throw rnutl at the Noonday mine
management nnd the town of which it
is one of the chief supports. Tin-
Nelson Aliner has made mot.** enemies
for nnd brought more dlicrcdit on tbe
town in which it is published than
five f-oo'i papers in ten yean can
reclaim.    It has fouled ita own   nest.

Beyond aud who leave the world as they
entered It wilh nothing to claim save lhe
uh they breathed,    But they have done
H good  work,   they lived  not  in vain.
Fifty veins ago they crossed Iho Missouri
river and filtered the "Great American
Desert," into an almost unknown country, bearing their lives in Iheir hands,
meeting and overcoming obstacles and
dangers of whloh they knew not, frightening or diiving the savages of the plains
from their pathway and tho less savage
animals from thetr lairs, but defying all
followed tho setting* sun on Its course to
the golden sands of the  Pacific, where
iliey   founded nn empire  in domain, a
storehouse abounding In gold,   But tbey
builded better than they   know.     They
opened the way for others to follow,   in
blazing  the   troll to lhe Paciflo they
passed over great stn tubes of plains and
mountains, out of which Nebraska, Col-
orado, Idaho, .Montana and Nevada have
been carved each  a treasure  vault from
which   countless   millions   have   been
emptied Into U.e busy world's channels
if trade, creating millionaires and tnulll- j
millionaires while tho troll blasters them- j
g Ives wero awokcdlng echoes in camps
thai add.'d more millions to  Ibe  wealth
of countries and their people.
All had lo the old miner! He. opened the Kales through which -he more
fortunate passed to wealth. Ilo uncomplainingly Pndured the privations and
hardships which are ever Ihe handmaids
of the pioneer. His youth disappeared
in his combats with an adverse fnituno
