At Uiis time, tlm beginning ol a new
year, it is customary (or newspaper
writers to hark back upon the events of
the past, lo review what hss heen done-
tt contrast the doings of the present, with
what was done and being done a year

At Ihe present lime, standing on (ho
threshold of a new century, the durknosa
seenis behind mid the outlook bright.
The mining districts of the Kootontyi
with few exceptions, have lii'Mi under n
cloud during the l.ist two years. The
retrospect Iroin a local print of view
shows a dreary period of inactivity sronnd
I the mines and a consc<picit period of,
business stagnation in the town. Borne
I flashes of prosperity tempted some to believe that the slough of despond hud been
passed, hut theae were sin-reeded by even more dismal times. 1 he pessimists
were in tlie majority and the optimists
were out-talked.
The pust year has teen the Alpha, the
Fisher Msidcn.the Salens Mines, the
Essex and the Cmnslock, all properties

! The Noonday, where twenty ore-sorters
wero onco kept busy, became involved in
litigation and shut down. A mill and

mining history of Si'vert on, r.in for :i lev

them in the frout rank of the minimi
companies in the Province, have secured
valuable holdings in the Rockland Group

was so great ihat the finders sold iim

company, to operate a  large  plant
at Seady Side, N. J., independently
of the Glucose Sugar Refining company or any other company.    "The
sole reason that we are going  into
this enterprise," explained Mr. Bedford, "is that by means of new pro-
processes we   believe  that   we  can
produce an article superior  to  any
upon the market."
The leading interests back of the
new company are understood to be
H. H. Rogers, C. M. Pratt,William

The new plant is to have a capacity

won $4000  for himself and a   like
amount for Allen.    Then "The Examiner Kid," having payed $1,400

• The fact that the backers of the
new company selected a location in
the east instead of near the great
corn belt is viewed with much interest by local glucose men. It has
generally contended that a western
location was preferable.
The cheap rates on corn from
Chicago, however, contrast sharply
with the rate on glucose, and it is
claimed that on local business the
advantage is rather in favor of an
eastern plant. It would appear that
the new company will probably
leave western markets alone and
devote its energies to the local and
other nearby markets, and especially
to building up an export trade.

Certain startling figures have
been made public to show the in-
erasing frequency with which strikes
occur in Germany. Incidentally
they destroy the prestige of the
United States as a strike center.
During one year, for instance—
the year 1899—1,297 strikes took
place in Germ my, The year before
there had been only 985, which indicates the rapidly growingstrength
of organized labor and perhaps also
the multiplication of cause ot dis r
At all events it  was a hard yea
for employers as well as for strikers,
as 1,920 establishments were obliged to shut down completely at  different times during  this   one  year.
It is plain   from this that the   German workman has not only   acquired weapons of self-protection,  but
uses them.    As for the  number  of
workmen concerned  in   the   strikes
of 1899, the  same  interesting  statistics fix it  at   100,779,   while th e
entire   number  of    establishments
affected   was 7S113.    Of these  all
not obliged to shut down altogether
were seriously disabled.
Furtherof indicationscfihe serious
character of the labor-capital war in
Germany lie in the fact that the  total numberol strikes extended over
3.976 weeks   and   cost   $625,254.
Of the total    number  542   had  an
offensive and 420 a   defensive character.
The least gratifying feature to
the fiiends of organized labor is
that only 520 strikes were complete

The Boundary section  of British
Columbia   abounds    in    legendary
lore, and of all the stories still  told
by  the  old   men of the  aboriginal
tribes around the campfire at night,
none is of more tragic interest than
one related by Skom-ne-lo,  a  sage
of the Colvilles, whose age  no  one
attempts to guess with any  degiee
of accuracy, and who,   when  asked
concerning this  subject,  points  to
an immense pine tree which grows
near his lodge and says, in his mixture of broken Knglish and Chinook
jargon, "My son, I have seen   the
time when my  friend  there  and   I
were the same  height,   but  I   was
stronger than he, for I   could   bend
him to the ground."    I  have spent
many ait hour with the aged Indian,
leaning against the   pine   while  we
both smoked my  tobacco,   and  listening to  his  tales   of   adventure.
One night,   after   he   had   silently
wooed "Lady Nicotine" for upwards
of an hour, he laid   his   pipe   aside
and said:
"My son, I will tell   you  ol   the
Blackfeet, and of how my tribe,who
have always been a peaceable  people, defeated the   war   paity   from
beyond tho big  hills—we  and   our
father, Toy-e be.     (Toy-e-be is the
Indian name for Kettle   river.)      It
was many  years  ago,   before   the
Hudsons    Bay    company   brought
rifles and whisky to us,   before  the
white   men   came   and    stole   our
women,   leaving   us   smallpox   and
boils in return,   before  thc   priests
had shown us bow to  go   to   hell.
The   Blackfeet   had   big    hunting
ground;- off  there   where   the   sun
rises, but many days' journey   from
this land.    Their men were tall and
strong, and their   number   was   as
the sand in   the   bed   of   Toy-e-be.
Seldom did they send   a  war  party
so far from home as to reach us,but
sometimes a band   of   their   young
men would   come  into  the   valley,
and then we used to fight, yes,   we
could fight   in   those  days—before
we had whisky and   hell—for   had
we not our homes to  preserve  and
our women to protect?
Hlai-ki.-ri on Warpalh.
"One time when the  leaves  had
just begun to die, 300 of the Blackfeet braves passed to the   north  of
us through the Kicking Horse pass
as far as the   O-kan-o-gan.      The
tribes in the north   had   no  hearts,
and the Blackfeet took many scalps,
and all the food they wanted, burning the rest.      They went   through
the land as the goose   Hies,   like  a
wedge, with their   strong   men   in
front and on the   wings,   and  their
wounded and prisoners in   the  center.    They took  enough  prisoners
only to carry their food,  and would
toiture them when they returned to
their own land; but we were merciful and gave them a quicker  death
They came down   the  O-kan-o-gan
lakes and across the He-he   trail to
this river.    Then they built  canoes
and came down toward us.
"I was a young man then, and
was the fastest runner in my tribe.
On that day 1 was hunting mowitch
(deer) a long day's journey up the
river. I saw the Blackfeet in their
canoes, and they were singing their
war songs and telling how they had
vanquished every tribe thev had
met. But victory had made them
over proud and they were careless,
I knew they would camp for the
night belore coming to the lodges
of my tribe, but in the morning
what would become of my people-'
So I ran, and the sun hunted his
bed in the salt water no faster thnn
I hunted the lodge of my father.
Night came and I ran on, for I had
eyes in the dark, and the trail sped
under my feet with a soft, singing
sound The bushes kissed me in
the face and bade   me   run   faster.
Ah, the woods were good to me in
those days.      I stopped only for a
moment tc bathe  my   lace   in the
river when I came to a ford, and to
drink a little of the cold wate •.    So
in the middle of the  night  1 came
into my father's lodge and told  him
what I had seen.     My   father  was
chief of the tribe.      He told   me to
waken the men, and   while   I   was
gone he sat with   his   face   in   his
hands, thinking.    When I returned
with all the men he came out ofthe
lodge, and his eyes shone,   making
us all glad; for my father was very
wise, and we knew  that  his  smile
meant death to our enemies and life
to us.
I»a»h«-d lo Death.
"So in the early morning we were
all hid in the bushes by the  river in
front of Ten-as-ket's   lodge,   about
four hours'journey up the river.and
the women had all our canoes waiting about a mile below  us.      Soon
we saw the Blackfeet coming, and
they were   not   singing   now,   but
bending to their paddles and  making the river  foam.      When   they
came near us we shouted  our  war
cry, and sent   our   arrows   among
them like a cloud.    Many  fell  into
thi; water, but the rest  paddled  to
the shore,   formed   a   wedge   and
charged.     Nothing could stand before that  terrible   wedge,   and  we
ran till   we   reached   our   canoes.
Then we paddled down  the river as
fast as we could,while they returned
to their  canoes   and   gave   chase.
You know the place about  a day's
walk below   here,   where   Toy-e-be
has cut a hole  through   the  mountain, where nothing   can   pass  and
live, and whete even big   trees  are
torn into splinters   on   the   rocks.
Well, when  we  came   around  the
bend at the top of this  canyon,   we
pulled our canoes out of the   water
and hid them in the bushes.     Then
we   waited.      Scon   the   Blackfeet
came  along,   their  canoes  leaping
from the water,    so   earnest   were
they in their determination to come
up with us.    If they had   not   been
blinded by anger they   would   have
seen the water on the  rocks   where
we lifted our canoes out,    but   they
saw nothing, neither did  they  hear
the roar  ot  Toy-e-be   as   he   tore
through the mountain.    When they
had all entered the gorge we jumped
Irom the bushes and called them   to
return.      But Toy-e-be had them in
his grasp and he is stronger  in   his
wrath than any living   thing.      For
a moment   they  struggled  against
the current,   and   then  they  disappeared.
"We went over the mountains as
fast as we could run, to   where   the
river comes out of the  gorge,   and
there, floating around in the   whirlpool were bits of canoes, and on the
rocks were some of the men, but no
one could tell that   they   had   ever
borne human shape,   for they were
like jelly.      We pushed them   back
into the water,and let the river take
them down toward the sea.    Toy-e-
be had killed them, and to Toy-e be
they belonged.   We took no scalps,
for our father, the river,   might   be
angry if we took from him the credit
of the victory.
"When the Blackfeet sent out a
party to look for their young men
Pit were ready foi them, for all the
tribes in this land came together,
and few Blackfeet ever returned to
lhe land ol iheir fathers. But of
this 1 will speak at   another   time."

His name is William Richardson,
and he hails from Alabama. Although only 17 years old, he was
one of the central figures in a dra-
mitic episode of the civil war.
General Forrest, then little
known, even throughout the Confederacy, in July, 1863, received
word the Federal troops under Gen.
Crittenden, who were at Murfree-
boro, forty seven miles away, had
captured a valuable Confederate
spy. He moved quickly and with
1100 men completely surprised
Crittenden's force in the early morning killing many and taking many,
more prisoners.
Forrest arrived in time to release
the man he sought, a spy in the
army of Virginia, known only as
Mr. Paul. Paul and his boy companion had been told only a few
hours before that they were going
to be hanged the next morning.
Richardson, who had gone into
the Confederate army when 16 years
old, was no spy, but had been introduced to Paul by relatives who
wanted to assist him in an effort to
retnrn to the south. He had been
captured after the first battle and
had been taken to Indiana. He made
his escape, got to Nashville, fell
in with Paul, of whose identity he
knew nothing, and was shortly
afterwards captured.
Paul's guilt was so clear that all
of Richardson's efforts to explain
to the Federal authorities that he
was no spy were unavailable.
better or write out more letters, but
because he can go out on emergency
work that the women would be un-
able to do.
H. M. Wakeman, in charge of the
Remington employment bureau, has
an average of 8000 applications   for
places always on  hand.     Many of
these are from places outside of the
city.    Many of them are from  men
and women now employed but  who
would make a change if profitable.
Mr. Wakeman says that to replace
women stenographers wkh   men it
would be neccessary for employers
to hire their men away  from  other
employers, thus  making   place for
women somewhere else.
"As to salaries" said Mr.   Wakeman, "there is a difference of about
$25 a month between  the pay ol a
man and a woman.    Vou  can get
a good  women  stenographer   for
$10 to $12 a week and you can get
a good man for from $15 to $18  a
week.    Few men  stenographers in
commercial   work get  more  than
$75 a month, and $60 to $65   will
get first class men.
"The   supply of   stenographers
has had much lo do   with   forcing
salaries down   from  the  $100 and
$125 mark of   twenty   years   ago.
Business everywhere has been compelled to adopt  the typewriter for
the reason that typewritten mail   is
most   likely   to   attract   attention.
This fact   has  forced  hundreds   of
small concerns to use  the  machine
when otherwise their business does
not justify.    These houses generally
employ girl stenographers who are
' learning   the   work,   paying them
$4 to $6 a week.    These  girls   do
the work sufficiently well, and when
they become  experts  they  are  let
go and more  new girls take  their
places.    This   of   course,   has  its
effect on salaries.
"I can imagine that a good wideawake man stenographer, receiving
dictation as to company business
lor a few years, would be in possession of many details of the business that would make him of more
value to his employers somewhere
else. I snould think iailroad companies, especially, might find men
stenographers more valuable than
women for this one reason."

There are 35,000 stenographers
of all decrees iu Chicago, in proportion to three women to one man,
and of this grand total perhaps
10,000 are continually seeking new
places. In place-seeking, however,
there are five women to one man
out of work.
In spite ol this fact, however,
there are rumors that certain great
corporations and railroads are intending to change from women
stenographers, to men, on ihe
ground that a man stenographer,
taking dictation in company business tor a period,naturally becomes
fitted lor positions in which he may
be worth more to himself and his
company than if he remained at
the typewriter.
It is argued that many businesses
are such that a women stenogragher
could not be promoted, and   that in
these, especially, men stenographers
are better and cheaper in   the   end.
There is DO fault found with women
as stenographers,   10  far as   their
work is concerned.    But for several
reasons  they   hold  their   positions
for shorter terms than men do, and
few of them are promoted to higher
