Slocau will do liri-sclf piiryml af the
Labor Day celebration on Monday
next, and Nthe assurances are that the
neighboring towns will send a large
company ol sightseers, The sending
of a delegate to Rossland was a good
stroke of business on the part of the
committee, and ns a result there will
be a turnout almost equal to that of
two years ago, The athletic associations of the whole country seem willing to come, bul the question of ex-
pense will debar the committee from
accepting all the proffers of help.
Nelson and Bossland papers are also
assisting the good work in fine style
and with practical results.
Kossland will send its bugle band
and a baseball teain.and another team
will come from Nelson. Nakusp will
likely be over with a baseball and
football outfit, and the home talent
ivill also shine, with the probability of
it her teams appealing.   New Denver

have pooled one hundred of the coal
claims owned liy them in favor of a
transportation company, which undertakes in return to build into the conl
and oil lands, and erect coke ovens for
the treatment of the coal.

Hero is a tit-bit of home news takeu
from tlie Nelson News that will come
as an agreeable surprise to tho citizens: - •
"A movement is on foot, under the
guidance of a number of prominent
Kootenay mining men, to establish a
smelter at Slocan. The arrangements
at present are very incomplete, and it
is the desire of those interested that
no names be divulged at present. It
(}s hoped, however, that earlyjnext
year the smelter will lie an accomplished fact. It is said that over fifty
properties will have their ore treated
at Sloean if a smelter were iu operation there."
If a smelter is to be erected at Slocuu, nothing is known of it locally.
No advances have been made to the
city council, uor do the local mining
men know aught of it. The air is full
of mill talk.but it is tho first time wnel-
ter has been mooted. There is the
contemplated reduction plant at the
Arlington, and sawmills at Evans
creek, the Little Slocan, down the
valley and here. The advantages and
opportunities for a smelter are here
right enough, but Sloean wus not
aware she was going to compete with
New Denver and Roseljery in that

C. Fernau has arrived from England and says he will proceed at once
with the erection of the proposed zinc
enrichment plant at Rosebery. The
site for tho works has lieen purchased
and tho machinery ordered. While
prepared to handle the product from
other mines, the plant will secure its
chief supply of ziuc from the Monitor
mine, at Throe Forks. Mr. Fernau
and his principals will also erect a
zinc smelter ut Fernie, capable of
handling 10,000 tons of ore per year,
whieh can bo increased to 30,000 tons
if need lie. Cheap fuel was the reason
why Fernie was chosen, Construction

Mill atK.vnn*Crack.
A move has been made towards the
establishment of a sawmill at the
mouth of Evans creek, six miles from
town, for the purpose of tapping the
extensivo limits up the creek, formerly
owned bv A. Currie, of Nelson. Last
week Litigate Bros., who are interested in the scheme, came up from Nelson and began clearing a building Bite.
The company own 40 acres of land at
the mouth of the creek snd it is their
intention to erect a modem mill. It will
be built either this fall or uext spring,
a market being found for its product
on the prairies. Shipping will be
done from this point.
A Leading Dank Offlelal Talks Plainly en
tke Subject.
D. R. Wilkie, vice president and
general manager of the Imperinl Bank,
is visiting the province. He is an enthusiast on tlie subject of a Canadian
mint, being about the best posted mau
thereon in the dominion.   He says:
"Canada needs a mint, both for business and sentimental reasons, and no
part of the whole country would benefit so much by it as British Columbia.
Here gold.silver and copper are mined
and the big gold country to the north
is tributary to the province. Now all
this gold goes to United States luniks,
ouly to come back to Canada as coinage. There is an assay office in Vancouver nnd the benefit of that institution being there hns lieen obvious.
But the gold is nearly all eventually
taken to the United States, there coined, and Canadian financial institutions
have to receive it back from across tho
"This country is literally flooded
with American silver. Ou every dollar of that silver, the country to the
south makes roughly fifty cents. Why
should Canada uot make thut fifty
cents on her own silver, mined and
minted beret The United States
makes the difference between the bullion price of the silver in the open
market aud the value of the dollar
after the stamp is ou it.
"There was very little use refusing
American coinage.or even discounting
it. The better way would be to accept
the money at par and theu ship it all
back to the States. With a mint
turning out Canadian coinage, our
own money would soon become the
universal medium of exchange in the
country, aud Canada would reap the
resultant profit between the value of
the metal aud the value of the coin.
"The sentimental advantage of having a Canadian coinage, too, is great.
There is no doubt that the ordinary
man, having before him from childhood the continual idea ofthe emblem
of a foreign country, as it appears on
United States coins, becomes impree- J
sed, imcousciously perhaps, with the
idea of the importance of that country and of that emblem. Why not
have the king's head on that coinage,
and make that impression a Canadian
one? As it is we are advertising another country at the expense of our

All danger from forest fires iu the
vicinity is over, tho rain of Tuesday
night having largely suppressed them
and cleared the air. The Lemon creek

R,  G.  McCDISH,
Editor and Proprietor   of   the   Mor-
den Chronicle.
In mnny respects, the editor of tho
Morden Chronicle is typical nnd representative o'f the breadth of vigor
of western Canadian journalism, lie
touches lifo nt mnny nnd varying
nngles. In the rungo of his sympathies nnd interests, and in tho variety of his activities, he is the human counterpart of thu "wideflung,
fenceless pruiries," in which bis
youth nnd young manhood huve been
Mr. McCuish, like the great bulk of
western Canadians, hails originally
from Ontario, Iieing born near Park-
hill, in April, 1877. Of tho older
province, however, he hus no enrly
personal recollect ions, for his parents came west while he was yet nn infant, settling near Morden. It was nt
the public, school of this prosperous
town that Mr. McCuish received his
element nry education, going from
thence to Manitoba College, Winnipeg. Erom the university to the
country school {teacher's desk i.s in
Multiloba a natural—nltnost nn inevitable— step, nnd Mr. McCuish was
next to be seen as a rural school-
muster nenr MacQhcgor, But, ns
with many unother, he found that
tin* material rewards held out to
tho teachers of youth were not
such ns to tempt him to remain in
the profession. And, in any case, he
hud other ntiibitions. When a school
boy in Morden ho had been an nltnost daily visitor nt the Chronicle
office, and the smell of the news ink
uud the attractive variety of newspaper work had marked out for him
his Career. He came to Winnipeg,
and secured a position on the repor-
torial staff of the Tribune, llis nnturo! liking for athletics mado the
Sporting column his chosen sphere,
nnd ere long he was placed in charge
of that department. And, in the
days of Mr. McCuish's control, the
sporting columns of the Tribune, in
rnciness, in brightness, In impartiality and in reliability, would
benr comparison with those of any
newspaper anywhere. The fnct that
the Tribune's competitors were morning papers gave theni considerable
advantage, since most athletic events
came off in the afternoon or evening, but this handicap Mr. McCuish
managed to more than compensate
for, by the manner in which ho
handled his news, and not infrequently he secured a number of important
"beats" and "scoops" on his competitors. There was widespread and
sincere regret among nil sportsmen
in Winnipeg when Mr. McCuish
stepped up from his position on tho
Tribune to become the owner nnd
editor of the paper in his old town.
The wishes expressed for his success
among thOSO who knew him—nnd
who didn't—were equally hearty and
This wns September, 1901, when
Mr. McCuish was but 24 years of
age. The paper ho had purchased
was one that enjoyed a reputation as
wide iis Western Cnnndu. It wns
one of the oldest papers in the West,
having been founded in 1H80, nnd it
had bad tiie good fortuuo to lio controlled by a man of much force,
breadth, ability und common sense—
Mr. .1. !'. Cal bra ith, one of tho
pioneer publishers of the province.
Among newspaper men in the West
tho Chronicle was regarded as perhaps the best printed and edited of
all the impels printed outside the,
cities. Hence Mr. McCuish hud no .
easy nmn to follow, for tho newspa-
nor standard in Morden wns high,
llis success, therefore, Is nil tho
moro striking, for It is indubitablo
that the Chronicle is to-day, in nil
respects, n stronger paper th^n when
he assumed control. Its circulation
is larger, its make-up Is better, nnd
and its advertising patronage is
greater than throo years ago. nnd
its opinions command ns much respect as ever. Mr, McCuish is a
strong party man, a Liberal who is
upright and downright in his views,
nnd Fearless In uttering nnd defending them. The Chronicle, in these
respects, Is n faithful reflection of
iis editor, being n vigorous nnd nth-
let liic champion nnd exponent of
Western Liberalism, and u centre of
influence to the party it supports.
Newspaper men in tho West huve
been ipiick to reoogniso Mr. McCnish's ability, and the W. 0. 1'. A.
last year elected him its first vice-
president.    In tho local   politics   of
his district, lie is a towor of strength.
He is secretary of the Liberal associations for both the provincial and
federal constituencies, and was tho
first presides! of tho Morden Young
Men's Liberal Association, for tho
founding of which he wus chiefly responsible. He is a ready und convincing platform speaker, and has
done yt'omuu service for the Liberal
party in roc-rat campaigns.
Though he bus been a resident of
Morden only throe years, his fellow
townsmen, at the lust municipal
■ lection, returned Mr. McCuish as
aldenuan by acclamation—a striking
tribute to his known public spirit
and personal popularity. His interest in ull forms of athletics continues, despite increasing demands
on his time. Mr. McCuish is secretary of Iho Morden Turf Club, Ihe
leading sporting institution in the
town, and of football, lacrosse nnd
other games he i.s a foremost supporter.
Mr. McCuish is unmarried—ns_ yet.
This, however, is understood to bo
u fault that time—a very short time
—will cure, llecently reports have
lieen circulated to the effect that In
the middle of September the editor
of the Chronicle will hie himself
east, nnd thut he will not return
alone. Mr. McCuish has lieen nt
much puins to deny these rumors,
but* his very obvious efforts in this
direction hnve only succeeded in
giving them greuter currency und
more genernl belief. In default of nil
admission of his guilt by the defendant, wo feel somewhat diffident
about offering congratulations. Nevertheless, we do so. und with the utmost sincerity and heartiness, voicing in this regard, we feel assured,
the feeling of Mr. Mci.'uish's hosts of
personal nnd professional friends. If
Mr. McCuish still persists that these
congratulations are misplaced, we
trust thnt he will return them, but
do not believe wo will ever have to

The Way the Excise Question   ffu
Handled by Its Sol.ne.
A translation of King Ilnmourabi's
code, written shout 2,250 years before
Christ, gives us nn Insight Into the life
of the great city of ltabylon at that
remoto time and of the way In which
the excise question wns bandied by Its
Nearly all the dealers of wines and
liquors nt that time were women, as
many of tbe laws transited from the
code speak only of women ns sellers of
drinks. Severe measures were taken
against those who adulterated th?
wines or mixed them with wnter, so aa
to safeguard the purity of tbe article
for the use of the public. The barmaid
was held responsible for nil disorderly
scenes or drunkenness ln her premises,
and death wns tho penalty for those
who did not denounce all cases of
drunkenness to the police. Those women who were employed In the temples
were forbidden to enter public hostel*
rles under penalty of death, and even
drinking ln private was forbidden to
Special police officers were detailed
for the enforcement of the excise laws
In tho city of Babylon, hut then ns well
as now the officers charged with this
duty were, if we nre to believe the
code In question, either negligent In
the performance of their duties or
too willing to accept bribes from tho
barmaids in the shape of drinks or
even money.
Severe punishment Is denlt out in the
document to the police officers who
shall accept bribes In connection with
the enforcement of the excise laws of
Babylon, but it is probnble that then
as well ns now many of the fair saloon
keepers found a way to bribe the offi-
cers and evade the laws.
Doctors have preached against the
so-cnlled soothing medicines tor

gether too much. The fact that they
put chlldron to sleep is no sign thai
they are helpful. Ask your doctor
nnd ho will toll you that you have
merely drugged your Hide ono Into
Insensibility — thai soothing medicines are dangerous. If your little
ono needs n medicine give it Daby's
Own Tablots, und you give il u medicine guaranteed to contain no opiate or harmful drug. You citn give
Iin'sc Tablets just as safely to a new
horn infant ns to the well grown
child, and they will cure uli the
minor ills of childhood. Mrs. .1. M.

change in her appenranco, nnd she is

Anemone Facta.
Naturalists have duly recorded lhat
that If a sea anemone be divided In
halves longitudinally a new animal will
In time be reproduced by each half, as
sinning the anemone is kept In pure sen
wnter. An old zoologist relates how he
watched nn anemone which somehow
or other bnd contrived to half swallow
ono of tbe valves of an oyster shell.
Practically the shell struck In Its gizzard and gradually cut Its wny down
through the soft tissues of the anemone until it halved the animal ns by
a partition. Perfect reproduction of
two anemones through the division ol
one was noted to lie the result of this
accident. Even n fragment or two of
an anemone body left attached to Its
rock may In due season reproduce a
new body.—London News.

By whom or when the use of tea for
drinking purposes was Qrst discovered
is lost in antiquity. It is spoken of ns
n famous herb In Chinese literature as
far back ns 2,000 years ». t'., at which
time its cultivation and classification
were almost us thorough and complete
as they are today. One of the ancient
legends says that Its Virtues were accidentally learned by King Shen Nung
She, the Chinese monarch who Is also
known as "1110 divine husbandman,"
who, the record says, flourished forty
centiirhs ago. He was engaged In boiling water over a fire matte of the
branches of the tea plsnt nntl carchsu*
ly allowed sume of the leaves to fall
Into the pot.
The llipild which he expected to come
frnm the vessel simply as sterilized
water was miraculously converted into
an elixir of life by the accidental addition uf the tea leaves. Soon after it
became highly esteemed In all the oriental cities and was used as a royal
gift from the Chinese monarchs to the
potentates   of   southern   and   western
This same King Shen KUUg She not
only earned tbe title of respect by
which he was known through the discovery of the virtues of ten. but because of being the first to tench hia
people how to make nnd use plows and
muny other Implements of husbandry.

one time, early last century, one stagecoach company not only cut the price
from Lewes to London to a very low

As  the coach   Started from   I.ewes nt
a somewhat uncomfortably early bour

the difficulty the proprietors allowed
the more slothful of their passengers
to go overnight to Brighton, wbere

extremely rare, nro not unprecedented,
Mr, Justice Maule once addressed a

thinks you innocent; I think you innocent Bnt a Jury of your own countrymen, tn the exercise of such common
