Patsy Clark.^one of Spokane's leading capitalists, has bonded the Queen
and Kootenay Belle mines at Salmo.
both being gold propositions. The
properties adjoin one another and are
Situated alxiut 10 miles tip Sheep
creek from the Nelson & Fort Shep
paid railway. The Queen mine is
owned by -I. A. Turner. M. Scully and
W. Waluie of Nelson, but for the last
nine months Mr. Waldie has had a
bond and lease on It. He has assign- ]
ed the bond to Clark for 880,000 cash j
within 00 days, so that be is likely to
make a good clean-up out ofthe trans
action. Mr. Waldie has worked the
property off and on for two years and
a half, and recently broke into a fine
chute of high grade ore. The claims
of the Kootenay Belle group lie further up the bill from the Queen. A
short time ago Bell Bros., of Salmo,
leased the property from the owners,
Billings &, Bennett, and put a number
of men on to develop the property,
Within the last few weeks three cars
of ore has been shipped to the local
smelters, netting the lessees about $50
per ton. This group has been bonded
lor $100,000, the lirst payment of live
uer cent falling due in May. The
lessees have been Imught out,receiving
$4000. Mr. Clark has commenced
operations on his properties.

Robert Kerr.gcueral traffic manager
of the   C.P.K., makes   the - following
statement of  the business of the road
in 1901:   The volume of travel during
the year just closed has been very
large, both on the company's steam
ship and railway lines. Of the steamship lines the most notable increase
has been on the I'acilie ocean, and it
was due almost entirely lo the natural
growth of business. The war iu the
lax cast, if anything, had a favorable
effect ou the company's busiuess.
Business was also good in the company's 15 hotels, situated nil the way
from Quebec to Vancouver, ami the
number of tourists at the different
mountain hotels was about 20 or 25
per cent greater than in 1903. The
motive power and car equipment of
the road have been largely increased
during the past year una plans are
already made for further additions
during 1905. Iu addition tothe regular dividends, the earnings of the road
were sufficient to give a tonus to the
old shareholders.

PERKINS' FRESH
AIR FUND
By EPES W. SARQENT
CovvrigM, mi, by fipei H*. Sargeni
Perkins' real name was Chester Albert Montgomery Pflster, aud it was
bis graceless uncle, Jack Pflster, who
bad shortened it to Perkins, u title tbe
bearer wore with meek resignation.
It was Jack Pflster also wbo had declared Perkins to bave been horn a
professional philanthropist. From his
babyhood Perkins bad been possessed
by a love of giving excelled ouly by bis
desire that bis gifts be heralded to the
world. Mrs. Pflster labored In vain to
Instill into his mind tbe value of unostentatious charity. Ouee she had even
sought to enforce her argument by aid
of a hairbrush, only to lind her offspring an bour later watching a In nie
boy eat tbe apple given him ns a hiilm
for his wounded feelings nml gleefully
informing the passersby that It was
through his sacrifice that the other's
enjoyment had been brought nhout.
After tbat she decided that It would
be well to wait until Perkins should
have arrived at more mature years before continuing her argument. Then
one afternoon Jack arrived with Perkins under his arm, the hoy clad only
in his trousers. Between roars of
laughter Jnck described how Perkins
bad started in hy giving his shoes to a
barefooted bootblack nnd, enthused by
the Imaginary appreciation of the pas*
•ersby, who hnd been attracted by the
unusual sight, hud gradually parted
with bis raiment, piece by piece, until
his uncle's opportune arrival alone had
saved the youngest member of the
house of Pflster from coining home in
a barrel and a state of nature,
Mrs. Pflster deckled that heroic
measures were necessary nt once and
turned Perkins over to his father. The
latter succeeded in convincing his son
that popular applause was not an essential accompaniment to charity and
that secrecy and good Judgment were
more to be praised than ostentation—
all of which, being reduced to words
of one and two syllables, was duly ab-
■orbed by Perkins.
Tbat night nt the table Perkins was
permitted to come In for dessert, nnd
he gravely listened to nn argument between Jaek nnd pretty Grace Tyson as
as it was too prniiio a place to kiss
JACK BUB KISSED l'l.l:i;j\s.
to the value of fresh air funds. It was
a hobby with Miss Tyson, and Jock
was Jealous of tbe time slu* devoted to
the fund because It interfered with
their mutual pleasures.
Perkins drank In Miss Tyson's glowing description of the joys of the city
child in the country anil the willingness of the fanners to lake them for
a
ii week, lie decided that she must be
right, though. He was unacquainted
with fresh nir funds. Usually he was
sent to the country'In May, but this
year, some especial club business requiring his mother's presence In town,
their departure bad been deferred.
Fresh nir funds, be gathered, meant
taking poor children to the country,
when* tlie fanners fed them fresh milk
and let them walk on the grass. Smh
enterprises were greatly to be approved, sliu'e Uncle Ju^k condemned tbem.
It hnd been through I'ncle .lack he
had had thnt awful hour with his father In the library. Of course he did
not know that after dinner, in the
snme library, Grace handed bade her
ring, declaring thnt she could not marry a mnn so thoroughly selllsh. Had
he seen Jnck Pflster pacing tbe (lour
of his room that evening even Perklai
might have been sorry.
Hut since It wns not considered necessary to Inform Perkins of his uncle's
nffnlrs be continued in the belief that
fresh nir fluids were most excellent
things to he encouraged. They wero
very simple too. It would he ensy to
And a   lot  of poor  children,  and   his
Uncle Montgomery would finance tbe
•offalr. u wag to thnt maternal relative that he nppMied the following
morning, dropping ensunlly into his
office. Five dollars wns promptly
forthcoming, Mr. Montgomery having
no Idea that the donation wns for Perkins' own particular fund.
* Armed with the crisp note, Perkins
rounded up half a dozen small boyi
tJTid Invited them for n two weeks'
trip to the country. These he march'
ed to the railway station, ami on Iiis
vague   announcement   that  it  wan a
 ——..ntlM
fresh air fund the ticket sellet fell Into
the error of supposing that it was a
belated part of an excursion which had
gone out tbat ver-.' morning from the
real society. He provided Perkins witb
tickets to a town a short distance up
the river. With tbe change Perkins
purchased a generous luncheon of
cough drops and peanuts, and, thus
equipped, the first personally conducted
excursion of the Perkins fresh air
fund made a start.
It was a ride of an hour and a half
by slow train to their destination. The
lunch disappeared, and the children
were tired and quarrelsome. Wben
Perkins, with blind confidence, announced himself and his party as a
fresh air fund and demanded to be
shown the farmers wbo delighted to
take in children, the station agent, who
had been tormented that morning trying to handle the real party, promptly
sent for the police force of two constables. The party was taken Into
custody.
Huddled Into one small room ln the
village lockup things were not well
with Perkins. He bad promised an
outing, and instead they had been arrested. Boylike tbey took prompt and
summary vengeance upon Perkins, who
formed the lowest layer of a pyramid
of six energetic youths just as Miss Tyson was ushered into tbe room. The
constables soon separated the combatants, and bit by bit the story came
out Miss Tyson flrst laughed; then
ahe cried, and then sbe kissed Perkins
a very great many times, for Perkins
favored his mother—and Jack Pflster.
Meanwhile there was anxiety in the
Pflster home. Perkins had not come
home for lunch. All of tbe relatives
were telephoned, and a clew waa secured from Mr. Montgomery, who related the Incident of tbe five dollar donation.
Jack Paster's quick wit solved the
rest of the problem. Perkins' freaks
were a constant source of delight to
him, and he saw in a moment how the
argument of the nlgbt before had borne
fruit A telephone inquiry at tbe railroad station confirmed his theory, and
barely had Miss Tyson made Perkins
and his companions comfortable at
the "fund" headquarters when Jack arrived on an express and made straight
for tbe headquarters as the first place
of Inquiry.
Perkins did not know whether Jack
was the more glad to see him or Miss
Ty***vi, but he was certain that Miss
Tyson cried very much more over Jack
than she had over bim. At any rate
his explanation that he was merely
trying to carry out the paternal injunction not to make a display of bis good
works fell upon unheeding ears, for
Jack was protesting that be bad been
a cad tbe night before, and Miss Tyson
was vehemently declaring that he was
a shamefully neglected and decidedly
dear boy, which explanation being
made she took back tbe ring.
Then because lt was too public a

"So," aaid the head of the firm,

"I'm afraid not," replied the employee.
"Then wby do you want to leave

Vou get a vacation, with pay, every

you're not docked, and I've always

THE PANTHEON.
It   Has   Withstood    Vtela»ltBdats   *H
Over Twenty Centuries.
The Pantheon is the most interesting
of all the Interesting places of Borne.
It waa used for its present purpose as
a place of religious worship before the
foundations of the Coliseum were laid.
Its huge doors have opened to admit
the great ones of the earth, from Augustus Caesar to Napoleon, an assertion that will scarcely be disputed.
It stands ln the very heart of old
Borne, and tbe vicissitudes which have
befallen tbe Eternal City during the
2,000 years of ita existence have left
it practically unchanged. The gilded
bronze that lined its roof has been carried off to "decorate" St Peter's, wbere,
In the form of clouds and Cupids, cords
and curtains, it fills the beholder with
displeased amazement.
Its tiles of bronze and gold were removed to Constantinople 1,500 yeara
ago, and the statues which adorned lt
have long since perished. But the
mighty walls yet stand, firm as ever,
sweeping up to tbe majestic dome, the
largest though not the highest In the
world.
One hundred feet across, a hundred
feet high and perfectly circular, no
architect could design a building more
perfect in its proportions, more harmonious as a whole. It is lighted solely
by an aperture in the dome, a circle
thirty feet across. Standing on its marble floor one looks up to tbe greatest
dome man ever raised and through
that to the blue dome which bends
above it sending summer sun or winter rain through those bare ytft-ds of
apace.
Tbe effect ls so Impressive, so entirely unmatched and unrivaled, that the
dullest of hearts and most untaught of
minds must perforce acknowledge ita
Influence. A man may think St Peter's "disappointing," may condemn
the Coliseum as barbaric or decide
that be does not care for tbe catacombs, but every man who has viewed
lt bas been impressed, even to the
pitch of respectful silence, by tbe Pantheon.
The huge leaves of the bronze door
revolve on their mighty hinges as they
have done since the days of the Caesars, and so perfectly balanced are
they that a woman's wrist can unclose
them. Through those doors tbey carried Julia, Caesar's daughter, with all
the pomp of her imperial power about
her. And after the lapse of twenty
centuries King Humbert was brought
across the selfsame threshold to sleep
his last sleep in the ancient place.
The Archbishop's SoBBeatlon.
The late Archbishop Corrigan was
j one of the gentlest of men, but when It
\ was necessary to reprove any one un-
I Her his charge, whether priest or lay-
1 man, be never hesitated to do so. At
! one time there was a vacancy in the
i rectorship of one of the large churches
| ln New York city, ond several clergy
men were talked about for the posl-
i tion. Two prominent women who were
members of the church called upon the
: archbishop and urged the selection of
! one of their clerical friends. As they
: were leaving one woman turned to the
other ond said impressively:
"Wheu you get home pray that the
noly Ghost mny give the nrchbishop
i the grace to appoint the right man."
Like a flash the archbishop turned
around and said in icy tones:
"Whlie you are at it ask the Holy
Ghost to give women the grace to attend to their own business."'
Love.
Lord Byron, brilliant, benntiful nnd
unscrupulous ns his own Don Juan,
left behind him the maxim tbat tliere
was but one real form of happiness in
love— where a ninu and woman so
adored each other that tliey could conceive of no happiness out of each other's sight, and this for their whole
lives. Qrant that this is to demand a
great deal, yet it is true that all the In*
fiuencea of long life combine to Identify two who dwell together. Their very
faces often grow more alike, and how
frequently tbe death of one is followed
•speedily, without sufficient visible reason, by that of the other also:

Man  Now
Mount Brydges, Ont., Jan. 9.—(Special)—That Dodd's Kidney Pills cure
Bright's Disease completely and permanently has been clearly shown ln
the case of Mr. Robt Bond, a well-
known resident ot this place. Mr.
Bond does not hesitate to say that
he owea hia life to Dodd's Kidney
Pills.
"My attending physician," Mr. Bond
states, "said I was in the last stages
of Bright's Disease and that there
was no hope for me. . I then commenced to use Dodd's Kidney Pills
and no other remedy. I used in all
about twenty boxes when my doctor
pronounced me quite well. I have
had no return of the trouble since."
Bright's Disease is Kidney Disease
in its worst form. Dodd's Kidney
Pills always cure it. They also easily cure milder forms of Kidney Complaint     • ,

■u From • Costlr Joke.
It was a gay time in congress one
night wben there was .an all night session on the Mills tariff bill In 1888. It
had been difficult to keep a sufficient
attendance, and tbe house bad adopted
a resolution directing the-sergeant at
arms to compel the presence of absent
members. One by one they were
brought'before-the bar-of the house
and after making all sorts of excuses
and .explanations were permitted to
go unpunished.
About midnight Congressman Henderson was brought before the speaker.
He bad, he said, no excuse to offer.
"I was at a theater party," he continued, "when- I was arrested and
brought bere. There is no sort of excuse for absence without leave."
"I move that tbe gentleman from
Iowa be fined $5,000!" called one of
Henderson's colleagues.
"I second the motion!" shouted twenty or mere members, all of tbem bis
Wends.
"It is moved and aeconded," said
Speaker Carlisle, "that the gentleman
from Iowa be fined (5,000. Those io
favor of the motion will say 'Aye.'"
Two hundred delighted voices shout
ed "Aye!"
"Those opposed will say 'No.'"
Henderson's agonized voice waa alon«
tn yelling "No!"
There was but one way to slip out
of the Joke and prevent the motion
' from being carried, and that waa for
Speaker Carlisle to overrule the house.
"The nays bave lt," said he gravely.
"The gentleman la excused."
Hla Waning Lore.
"I am afraid George is beginning to
prow cold toward me," half sobbed the
young wife.
"What's be been doing now?" inquired her mother sharply.
"In his last letter he only sends me

he used to send 10.0QO.O00."
HOW A* WATCH WORKS.
One View of Wedlock.
An Englishwoman hnd had a good
deal of trouble with her husband, who,
according to her account, was a monster of iniquity. Some one asked why
she had married a person of such character. "Well, you see, be ain't my
first," was the reply. "1 was pertickler
about my first. This here's my second,
and a bad un at that. But there"—with
a shrug of the shoulders—"he's a shade
better than the w.ork'us!"
A   MOTHER'S   PRECAUTION
There is no telling when a medicine
may be needed in homes where there
are young children, and the failure
to have a reliable medicine at hand
may .mean much suffering, and perhaps, the loss of a priceless life.
Every mother should always keep a
box of naby's Own Tablets in the
house. This medicine acts promptly
and speedily, cures such ills as stomach and bowel troubles, teething
troubles, simple fevers, colds, worms,
and other little ills. And the mother has a guarantee that the Tablets
contain no opiate or harmful drug.
One wise mother, Mrs. Geo. Hardy,
Fourchu, N.S., says: "I have used
Baby's Own Tablets and find them a
blessing to children. I am not satisfied without a box in the house at
all times." If your dealer does not
keep these Tablets In stock send ?5
cents to The Dr. Williams' Medicine
Co., Brockville, Ont., and you will
get a box by mail postpaid. '
A Vibrating Wheel Takea the Place
of tha Clock's Pendnlnm.
A watch differs from a clock In Its
having a vibrating wheel Instead of a
vibrating pendulum and as ln a clock
gravity la always pulling tbe pendulum
down to the bottom of its arc, which is
Its natural place of rest, but does not
fix it there because tbe momentum acquired during its fall from one side
carries it up to an equal iheight on the
■ other, so ln a' watch a spring, generally
, spiral, surrounding tbe axis of tbe bai-
i ance wheel, is always pulling this toward a middle position of rest, but does
not fix it there because tbe momentum
acquired during its approach to tbe
middle position from either side carries
it Just as far past on the ■•other side,
and the-spring bas to begin Its work
again. The balance wheel at each vibration allows one tooth of tbe adjoining wheel to pass, ns tbe pendulum
does ln a clock, and tbe record of beats
| ls preserved by the wheel which fol-
j lows. A mainspring ls used to keep up
the motion of the watch Instead of the
weight used in a clock, and as a spring
acta equally well, whatever be Its position, a watch keeps time, although carried ln the pocket or lu a moving ship.
. In winding up a watch one turn of the
axle on which the key is fixed is render
I ed equivalent by the train of wheels to
about 400 turns or heats of tbe balanct
wheel, and thus the exertion during a
few seconds of tbe hand which windi
up gives motion for twenty-four oi
thirty hours.

"Something must have stung your

suburbanite, whom he was visiting a
few days ago, as he noticed the antics
of a large collie which, after snapping
frantically at a flying insect, lowered
his hend und carefully licked his right
forepaw.
"No," replied the owner of the dog,
'that Is only a little delusion of his.
When he was a puppy a bee stung him
on that foot you see hlm attending to,
and ever Suite he has cherished a
standing grudge against flying Insects

FRANK OLIVER. M.P.
Editor  and   Proprietor   of  the
Edmonton  Bulletin
Lever's Y-Z (Wise Head) Disinfectant
ooap Powder dusted in the bath, softens
the water and disinfects. 38
Newspapermen, like lawyers, have
a faculty of drifting into public and
parliamentary life, and Chose of the
West, are no exception to the rule.
Its number of parliamentary representatives Is few, but included therein are at least two men who reflect
equal lustre on journalism and on
.politics—Walter Scott, M.P., and
Prank Oliver. M.P. A sketch of the
former has already appeared in these
columns and it now remains to say
somewhat of the member for Edmonton and the editor and proprietor of
the Badminton Bulletin.
At the outset one Is confronted
•with a serious, an almost insuperable
difficulty. Frank Oliver is one of the
most reticent of men in anything that
concerns himself. That is, on paper.
In personal conversation few men are
more frank and outspoken, and he
will ;;ive his views on any subject
requested with blunt directness. But
lie is the despair of reporters and interviewers, who, as often as not, find
themselves the victims, rather than
the operators, of their modern journalistic methods. Mr. Oliver can,
whenever he desires, bo as uncommunicative as a clam. His bushy
brows will lower threateningly over
his piercing grey eyes, and then, if
lie is wise, his interlocutor will grow
wary. From submit ting patiently to
cross-examination the Edmonton edi-
tor-iiolitician will become restive—
Bonreumes combative—in his replies,
and turn the tables upon his tormentor. And, while Mr. Oliver recognizes
the right of the public to know his
views on questions of public policy,
be altegether, and properly, denies its
right to an iiiip.-rtlueui prying Into
personal matters, and woe betide the
reporter with tht* hardihood and temerity to take counsel of his own presumption rather than of the character
of the person he desires to interview.
Discomfiture, swift and certain, will
be  llis assured  portion.
Tlle Parliamentary Guide stales, in
a four-line skeleton biography that
constitutes almost the only printed
record of Mr. Oliver's career, thai he
was born iu Peel County. Ontario, In
1853, and is. therefore, in his lil'ty-
lirst year, llo came to the North*
west at an early age. aid followed his
irade as a printer's journeyman,
wmklng on the Free Press and other
Winnipeg papers. Prior to' 1SSS he
went lo lhe Territories and in that
year was elected a member of the
Territorial Assembly', the governing
body which, with wider powers, succeeded ihe Northwest Council, In
ibv general election of isiit; he resigned from tin* assembly to contest, the
Dominion seat of Alberta as an in-
dependent, mui was returned by a
majority of nearly sen.    ai the eleo*
tlotl of l'.IUll lie won over tWO opposing  candidate*' by   about     Ilie     same
plurality, while on November '■'• last,
at   the  general   election,   his   majority
over bis .opponent was in the neighborhood of 3,000, and was one of Uie
largest, if not the largest, in the Dominion. 'I'lils brief record of his public
('.'.reel*  tells  Its  own     story,     ol'    tlle
growing strength of Mr. Oliver^ pop-1
uliirlty.
In tho Territorial Assembly Mr.'
Oliver was, in the old days, one of'
'be most forceful and striking figures,
and; In the wider arena of Dominion
politics, his downright, upright, forthright, fearless statements of policies
and issues have wmi Inr bim national;
fame. He was returned to Hie Canadian Com 111011s as an Independent,
but tho passage of time has found
him working in more and more complete harmony with the Liberal party.
In Hie Ottawa House tliere nre many
'""ti wltb greal cr grace or expression
and of more attractive  manners as|
■i   speaker,   but   few   are   listened     tO|
wiih more attention than the plain*
Poken member from tbe Western
"rnlrles. lie has the faculty of going straight to the gist, mid heart of
''lings when he discusses Ihem. There]
is no Indirection, no Indecision, nm
'"•nting about the bush, in Whal be
Ims to gay. Mr. Oliver bus thought
"ii wlint he propones lo discuss, bus
reached definite conclusions there-!
■'"eut, and In speaking has no other
purpose than to convey, In as few
words as mav be, nnd wilh Hie utmost possible'lucidity nnd straii'.lil-
forwardness,   wha<   those   conclusions
are. After he is throiigh speaking no
one has any doubt of what Mr. Oliver's opinions are, nor that he will
defend those opinions with courage
and tenacity. He believes that words
were given to express, and not to conceal, thought, and acts and talks accordingly. If he has not yet come to
fixed conclusions regarding any subject of public Interest, he is no whit
ashamed to state the fact and never
pretends a knowledge he does not
possess, or to hide it under an assumption of oracular wisdom, or befog a plain issue by a cloud of mva-
tifying claptrap. For the rest he'is
a plain citizen, a man who believes
in democracy, who is ever on the side
of the masses against the classes,
who hates with all the strength of
a strong nature all forms of injustice
and oppression, who nevor seeks and
never avoids a fight, but who, once
engaged, will struggle on to final victory with a tenacious courage that
no obstacles can crush and no difficulties subdue. His is the the temperament of the pioneer; his the disposition that snatches victorv out of
the jaws of defeat. Withal, he has a
level-headed cannlness that seldom
permits him to be placed in a false
position, a shrewdness that foresees
contingencies and avoids errors.
Frank Oliver is no Don Quixote to
run n-tilt into windmills, or to batter
his head against stone walls. Caution,
equally with courage, are his outstanding characteristics, both in his
personal ani  political career.
As   un   editor,   Mr.   Oliver  exhibits
the same characteristics of energy as
he has shown in public life.    Ho took
hold of the Bulletin when Edmonton
was the most northerly of all Canadian   towns,   was  practically   isolated
from  the rest of the Dominion,  and
known   principally    as   a   convenient
starting  point  for the  journey    into
the hunting  and  trapping  regions of
Athabasca, the Peace and  the Canadian    sub-arctics.    The    Bulletin    at
that time reflected the pr-sent position  and  the future promise of    the
town.    It. was the day of small things
in  Western  journalism,  and  the  Bulletin   was  no  exception   to  the  rule.
Its   news   was    fragmentary   and   ill-
arranged   and     its     presswork     and
make-up no better than that of dozens
of otlier  papers  in  Western  Canada.
Hut.   even   in   those   early   days,   Its
editorial   utterances  were   impressive
in  their Influence, and  it  became    a
proverb  that   what the  Bulletin   snid
would  soon   be  what the  Territories
thought.   And. as time went on. every
department   of  the   Bulletin   showed
the  growth   and   development  of  the
country in  wliich  It circulated,    and
of the wider-reaching influence of the
mnn wVo controlled its destinies.    It
grew   bigger;   it   grew   better.     From
a   weakly   weekly   It   developed   into
the most forceful and influential daily
ln the Territories, ns is fitting to lie
In the case of the citv that Is destined to be the one second in importance
in  Western  Canada,    Locally,  municipally,   polltleallv   nnd   territorially
it   has  kept   itself  abreast   of  its  opportunities  nnd   the  develonment     of
the West.    When one considers  ho\r
rapid has been that developr.ent, how
largo   nnd    ever-wi'leniim   the   opoor*
1 unity, and how ndeeuntelv nnd with
whnt  enterprise tho Bulletin has discharged   Its   duties  in   these   particulars,   none   enn   denv   thnt   its   editor
is one of Western Cnnndn's most able
journalists,  as  lv-'  is  undoubtedly one
of its foremost   public men.
CANTERBURY CATHEDRAL.
Only  One  English   Kin*.   Henry   IV.
Has   Been   Entombed   There.
The ancient cathedral at Canterbury
shelters the remains of only one English king, Henry IV. That this par.
tlctilar monarch should have been entombed there is the more remarkabU
since he breathed his last ln the Jem
sal*ro chamber of Westminster abbey,
and It might naturally bave been supposed ln the circumstances that he
would have been laid to rest in the abbey, where so many other of England's
kings sleep their last sleep. It seems,
however, that Henry before his death
gave orders that he was to be burled
ln the cathedral at Canterbury opposite the tomb of bis uncle, Edward,
the Black Prince.
For hundreds of years a story was
current that on the way down the river a hurricane arose and that the people on board tbe vessel, convinced tbat
the storm was caused by the fact that
a king's body was on board, cast the
corpse into the water ln the dead of
night nnd, filling the coffin with rubbish, brought It with all pomp and circumstance to the cathedral. Some
years ago the dean nnd chapter resolved to get at the truth of the story.
So they opened the royal tomb and
the king's lead coffin. For one brief
moment dean and chapter gazed upon
the kingly lineaments of that monarch
whom Shakespeare describes as "sky
aspiring Bollngbroke." Only for a moment, however, as the body crumbled
to dust almost at once. But Canterbury now knows beyond all doubt that
an English king rests within Its walls.

FRIDAY. JANUARY 20, 1905.

KUITOHIAl.   CKOFP1NUS.
Hon. Charles Wilson, attorney general, has returned from his trip to
England, and is busy getting things
in shape for the meeting of the legislature.	
For the first six months of the current fiscal year the receipts of the dominion amounted to $35,130,598, and
the expenditures $21,875,214, leaving
a surplus of upwards of $13,000,000
over ordinary expenditure.
The dominion parliament opened
last week with rather more than the
usual ceremony, Earl Grey, the new
governor-general, creating n favorable
impression. The session promises to
b6 «hort,the principal feature outlined
in the speech from the throne being
the granting of provincial autonomy
to .the Northwest Territories.
" Hon. R. L. Bordeu will continue as
leader of the Conservative party in
Canada, such being the decision of
the caucus held in Ottawa last week.
A aeat for the commons will be found
tfdf Mr. Borden in Carlton county,
Ont. It is the intention to call a dominion convention at a later date and
thoroughly reorganize the party.
Ontario is experiencing the warmest
provincial campaign in its history, the
struggle daily growing more heated
and bitter.' Premier Ross is putting
forth evfery effort to win, but so many
of his followers hare quit him because
ot the political corruption and temperance cries, that it is felt victory will
liest with the Conservatives on Wed
nesday next.
J. J. Campbell.manager of the Hall
Mines smelter at Nelson, has written
The Drill, denying that his institution has raised the rate of treatment
upon Slocan ores, nnd stating that no
foundation for such a report exists. A
couple of weeks ago this paper stated
mineowners were complaining that the
local   smelters   had   increased  their
rates coincident with the bestowal of
a bounty on lead ores by the dominion
government, and that the major portion of the bounty weut to the smelter
rather than the mineowner. The Drill
did not make the statement recklessly,
but rather upon the authority of one
of the prominent members of tho Silver-Lead Miueownera Association,* ho
made the assertion unreservedly and
without solicitation.   On the one side,
therefore, is a plain statement; on the
other  a  flat  contradiction, and   the
public must draw   their own conclusions.   TJiat there is, however, something radically amiss with the mining
industry in the   Slocan, both in   the
wet and dry ore belts, is lieyond cavil,
and there is not the genuine prosperity
prevailing the inhabitants would like
to seo.   Records of the weekly output
sustain this contention, and dissatisfaction and unrest do exist.   The output of the Slocan is far short of whnt
it hns beon, or what it might reasonably be  expected   to lie.   One thing
sure, thc element of hot uir has been
eliminated and the district  is rapidly
getting to the   point   where   its real
worth aud   value   may   be   realized.
That point, to the hundreds who have
acquired real estnte or embarked in
business in the various towns, is by no
means cheerful  to contemplate; and
to  this  factor  is  undoubtedly due
much of the dissatisfaction existing.
Yet, it must not be forgotten that the
mining industry   is', not in a healthful condition, as only a small percentage of the properties are working.   It
cannot be laid to the  wage question
for the   daily   pay of the worker has
seen no advancement, but the cost of
living, mining supplies, etc., have increased.   Despite Mr. Campbell's assertions, the impression  prevails that
the snwltors are partially to blame for
the state of   affairs existing.   If they
are nut,then the mineowners owe it to
smelters to set them right before
lie public,

Business
in these days of progress and competition
no man in business
should neglect an opportunity to keep his
goods before the people.
Modern usages proclaim advertising the
one road to success;
neglect of it invariably
ends in disaster. A
merchant's standing
in a community may
be judged from the advertisement he carries
in a local paper. To
sell goods a man must
advertise. All live
men seek the aid of
