The opening of the second session
of the tenth parliament of British Columbia, ou the 9th inst.. took place
with the usual fornialities,in atrocious
weather. In spite of this drawback
all accommodation for spectators was
taxed to the uttermost. Humors of
unusually iniportu^ pending railway
legislation, a general curiosity -very
pleasantly and satisfactorily gratified
—as to the outcome of the government's financial policy, all contributed
to swell the numbers of tbe large and
brilliant crowd which witnessed the
opening of what it is generally felt
will be an important, though not very
lengthy, session.
The substance of the speech from
the throne, tis read by his honor the
lieutenant governor, was of a nut ure
to confirm these expectations. Without being long, it contained more
matter of general public import than
has been the case for some years. His
honor, it is pleasant to note, in spite of
his advanced years and recent severe
domestic affliction, was in excellent
health.
Of the much-discussed financial
measures adopted by the government
last session, his honor said: "I am
glad to be able to inform yon that the
measures taken by you last session
have done much towards placing tlie
finances of the province on a sound
basis, and that for the first time in
many years the public accounts show
a balance of reveuue over expenditure." •
As those last words wore spoken a
distinct sensation, uncontrollable ill
-.pile of the decorum which the etiquette of the occasion demanded, was
uoticabl- throughout the audience.
The vindication, after a year's trial, ol
a totally new departure in provincial
finance me'.hoda; tiie fact that the div
uially familiar deficit was no longer
on tiie carpet; the fact that the inUch-
abused financial policy had effected
the thing it promised to effect till
tliis was ample warranty for the sub
J lied, yet evident, thrill which pervad
.*d his honor's hearers. No man pros
ent but fell that the  occasion Ultll'ke i
the triumph  of business methods as
applied to.adniinistrativa fiuauce.
The reference in the speech to pro
jected railway legislation was natural
iv listened to with intense interest
Though guarded In its terms, it stated
plainly that   the government ha 1 un
der consideration certain plans which
would secure   needed   railway esten
sion without   unduly   burdening thc
public exchequer. This will, of course
be one* of the most anxiously watched
features of the sessional programme
Un the departure of the lieutenant
governor and stall, the ordinary for
mui business of  the first  day of the
session was quickly put through.theri
being no hitch In the proceedings. An
interesting ceremony was the formal

AltLINOTON  HUMOUR.
Looks ae If the Property  Were About to
Start t'p.
All sorts of rumors have been in
circulation again regarding the Arlington mine. R, P. Rithet, the principal
owner, is credited with having stated
that the mine would start up in the
spring and that ample funds for development purposes were In the treasury. Efforts were now lieing made
to secure a competent man to manage
the property.
On Wednesday Win. Hudson, who
was foreman at the Arlington at the
time it closed down, arrived in from
Nelson and went on up to the mine.
The several workings are to be cleaned
ui) to allow of an examination being
made by competent engineers, upon
the result of whose labors the operation of the mine depends. It is almost
a certainty, however, that the mine
will be worked.

DODD'S     KIDNEY     PILLS     SOON
DROVE AWAY RHEUMATISM
AND DROPSY.
Case of a Windsor Man Who Suffered
Years Before He Discovered the
Right Remedy.
Windsor, Ont., Feb. 13.—(Special).
—How quickly Rheumatism and
Dropsy can bo cured when the right
medicine is used is shown in tho case
of Mr. Jno. McDonald, a retired farmer living at 130 Langlols Avenue here.
Mr. McDonald says:
"For two years I was troubled with
Rheumatism and Dropsy. My legs
were terribly swollen, and though I
tried many medicines nothing gave
me any relief until I tried Dodd's Kidney Pills. Two boxes of them cured
me so completely that I have had no
return of the diseases ln years."
Rheumatism and Dropsy are caused
by the poisons disordered Kidneys tail
to strain out. of the blood. Cure the
Kidneys with Dodd's Kidney Pills,
and the cured Kidneys will remove
the cause of the Rheumatism or Dropsy. Without cause there can be no
disease.
A   GRACEFUL   COURTESY.
The Ogilvie Flour Mills Company,
Limited, certainly do things ln the
right way. Since their advertisements
of Royal Household Flour have appeared ln the newspapers they have
received thousands of testimonials
from women ail over Canada who have
used Royal Household Flour ln their
home baking. These kind expressions
of the superiority of this Flour have
•been entirely voluntary on the part of
the senders. In order to show their
■appreciation of this courtesy, the Ogilvie Company have had a very line
painting reproduced in all the original
colors, and copies suitable for framing are being mailed to each one who
'has sent ln a testimonial.
It was a graceful way of saying
"thank you," and cannot fall to keep
Royal Household Flour In remembrance.
ARISTOTLE AND ENGLISH.
Vbe Claemlc Author's Many (inlrlbn-
tlons to Our Vocabulary.
During the middle ages Aristotle was
practically the only secular author
read in Europe, for the priestly class
were the only readers, and their learning was mostly confined to ecclesiastical treatises. It was during this period that the English language was
developing into ita present form.
Aristotle treated of every subject
which came within the range of
thought in his time and Introduced
many new branches of inquiry which
bave since become sciences. The terms
used by blm were adopted by every
later writer and are still ln use all
over Europe, although variously corrupted.
The following list will give some
Idea of tbe number and power of Aristotle's word coining, which ls revived
in modern everyday English:
Maxim, principle, subject, matter,
•form, end, final, cause, motive, energy,
mean, extremes, metaphysics.
He called his investigations about
■animals "histories," whence we call
our science, wblcb bas the same end
ln view, "natural history," and in our
universities the term "faculty" is a
translation, corrupted ln Its passage
through tbe Latin, of Aristotle's term
for art
A LIVING SWEETMEAT.
The  Way  Native  tleilrana   Eat  tha
Honey Bearing Ant.
The honey bearing ant of southern
Mexico and Colorado works at night,
storing the honey ln curious fashion.
After a foraging expedition on the
plants of the Schrug ouk tbe worker
ant on Its return forces the honey by
muscular contraction from Its mouth
into tbe crop and abdomen of the
"honey bearer." This crop ls walled
by ten muscular plates and is capable
of great expansion. When filled the
abdolhen becomes extraordinarily distended, the "bearer" resembling a sac
of amber colored honey, with tbe head
and thorax like small appendages on
one side.
The "bearers" being rendered almost
helpless by this change of condition,
are carefully attended by the other
ants and kept In suitable compartments, where, clinging to tbo roof,
they hang down liko amber globes.
The ants as they need food apply their
mouths to those of the "limicy bearers," when a slight contraction of the
muscles forces out minute drops, which
are licked off and consumed. These
ants nre used by the natives of Mexico
es dessert to their feasts, tbe honey
being extracted by pressure between
tbe teeth.
A LAMB AND ITS DAM.
The   Way   the   Ewe   Recognises   Ita
Ovrn  OffaprliiK.
Although sheep can see and hear
very well, It is undoubtedly by the
sense of smell that the ewes recognize
their own offspring. Sir Herbert Maxwell relates nn interesting example of
this odd fuct, citing thc case of n Cheviot lamb wblcb bud fallen Into a
river and, owing to the steepness of
the bank, could not climb'out.
An angler, who was flailing In the
stream, rescued tlie shivering animal,
and lt staggered away, bleating pit*
eously for its dam. It found her without much difficulty, but the mother,
snlfllng disdainfully at tbo dripping lit-
tie wretch, pushed It off. refusing to
recognize lt.   The angler appealed to
a shepherd who happened to pass that
wny for an explanation of tlie ewe's
behavior, "Oh," auld be, "the bit
beastlc's been In the wnter, ye see, and
the auld ewo cnnna smell It. She'll

One rhaae of Mexican Etlqnett*.
Mexlcau etiquette Is peculiar, ns la
shown by the following quotation
from a letter written by a Spanish woman while traveling in that country:
"There Is one piece of etiquette entirely Mexican, nor can I imagine whence
derived, by which lt ls ordained that
nil new arrivals, whatever their rank,
foreign ministers not excepted, must,
in solemn print, give notice to every
family of any consideration in the capital that they have arrived nnd put
themselves and their homes at the disposition of tbe residents, falling in
which etiquette the newly arrived family will remain unnoticed aud unknown."
The Steam Engine.
The steam engine wus made perfectly automatic by a la*zy boy who was
employed to open and close the valves.
Desiring to play instead of to work, he
tied a string from one part of the machine to another, thus making the engine itself attend to its own business.
He wae never heurd of again, aud even
his name is unknown, but a perfect engine was the outcome of his laziness.

PAINFUL   RHEUMATISM.
Golf Player'a  Left   Shoulder.
The right shoulders of persistent
golfers' coats have to be padded, for
golf develops tbe left shoulder so abnormally that, witbout thia padding,
the young men would look a little deformed.
In driving the player's right arm and
shoulder only guide tbe ball's course.
It is tbe left arm and shoulder that da
tbe work; hence the excessive left sld«
development, to counteract which lt is
sometimes necessary to put in ths
right shoulder of the coat padding an
inch deep.
Tailors can always tell a golfer by
this peculiar development of his left
shoulder. Sometimes young women
play enough to get uneven shoulders
too. The deformity, though, is rare
among young women, whereas among
young men lt Is common.—Louisville

m, PILLS d
How It Is Caused by Bad Blood, and
Why Cured by Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills.
Not many years ago doctors
thought rheumatism was only a local
pain caused by cold or wet ln ageing
joints and muscles. Now they know
that rheumatism is caused by the
blood becoming tainted with uric
acid from disordered liver and kidneys. This acid eats into the vital
organs. It destroys their vitality,
contracts the muscles, stiffens the
joints and irritates the nerves. Then
cold and wet make every bone groan
with aching rheumatism. You blame
the weather, but the real cause is
acid in the blood. The stiffness
spreads and the pains grow worse
each year until you are a helpless
cripple, tortured day and night. Perhaps the disease may spread to .the
heart—and that means sudden death.
You must not neglect rheumatism—
but you can't cure it with liniments,
plasters or hot cloths. They cannot
possibly touch the blood. " The only
sure scientific cure is Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, because they actually
make new blood. They sweep out the
painful acid, loosen the joints, and
muscles, brace up the nerves, and
strengthen the liver ant kidneys for
their work in casting out impurities.
This is proved by the thousands of
suffering rheumatics who have been
made well and strong by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Mr. T. H. Smith,
of Caledonia, Ont., is one of these
many witnesses. He says: "For a
number of years I was badly troubled
with rheumatism, and was so crippled up I could scarcely do any work.
I tried a number or medicines, but
they did not help nse. I saw Dr,
Williams' Pink Pills advertised as a
cure for rheumatism and decided to
try them. Before the third box was
gone I found myself much better. I
continued to use the pills throughout
the winter and they have completely
cured me. I got so I could work on
the coldest day without a coat and
not feel a twinge of the trouble. 1
think every rheumatic sufferer should
promptly take Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure men
and women who are crippled with
lumbago, rheumatism, sciatica, paralysis and even locomotor ataxia, because they actually make new, rich
red blood. The new blood sweeps the
painful, poisonous impurities out of
the system and puts the whole body
into a healthy state. Nothing but
good rich blood can do that—and
nothing can give yoa healing blood
except Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. It
the blood ls bad the nerves are bad,
for the nerves feed on the blood.
That Is the cause of sleeplessness,
nervousness, hysteria, St. Vitus'
dance, neuralgia, and loss of vitality
ln men and wonien. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills faithfully used cure these
diseases and other blood disorders
such as anaemia, biliousness, Indigestion, heart, troubles, backache, kidney trouble and decline. But you
must get the genuine pills. The
"something else just as good" medicine which some dealers try to persuade their customers to take never
cured anything or anyone. See that,
the full name, "Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People," ia on the
wrapper around every box. If in
doubt write direct to The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont..
and the pills will be mailed at 50

The llaia of .Tn<!g<-*i.
Lord Brampton has much to tell of
judges ui\(l their ways, as witnessed
by him before ho was on the bench
Iiiiiik-'Ii'. Hero is one of a rude and
stupid  .Scotch   judgo:
('ne day a celebrated advocate wus
arguing before him, when, to express
his contempt ot what he was saying, the cantankerous old curmudgeon
of a judge pointed with one fore-
linger to one of his ears, and with
the other to the opposite one.
"You see this,  Mr.  '?"
"I do, my lord," said the advocate.
"Well, it just. goes in here and
comes out tliere!" and his lordship
smiled with the hilarity of a judge
who thinks he has actually said a
good thing.
The advocate looked and smiled
not likewise, but a good deal more
wise. Then the expression of his fuce
changed to'one of contempt.
"I do not doubt it, my lord," said
he.    "What is tliere to prevent it?"
Another Judge, sentencing a butler
who had stolen his master's plate,
said:
"You, prisoner, have no excuse for
your conduct. You had a most excellent situation, nnd a kind master
to whom you owed a debt of tho
deepest gratitude and your allegiance
as a faithful servant, instead of
which you jmiil him liy feathering
your nest with his silver spoons."
That "801110 judges think n good
deal of themselves is shown by the
following story of Huddleston nnd
Munisty, who were nt Liverpool Assizes, and dining with tho Lord
Mayor. The toast of "The Queen"
wns proposed, and "'Mnnisty, with
his innate good breeding, stood up
to drink   it."    Huddleston   pulled him
by the sleeve, saying:
"Sit   down,    Mnnisty,     you   d d

WHAT THE SIAMESE EAT.
Rlee and Patrld Pish Itlshly Seaaea-
ed Their Mala Food.
Siamese food principally constats of
dried, frequently rotted, fish and rice
done Into curries which comprise a little of about every kind of condiment
and especially a very popular sauce
called namphrlk, a chutney-like and
thoroughly mixed thing made of red
pepper, shrimp, garlic, onions, citron,
ginger and tamarind seeds. The only
reason for the fish being putrid ls because the natives like it so, for fish are
plentiful in their rlvere and fishermen
numerous, though their ways of catching are rather amusing and antique.
One favorite method, borrowed from
the Chinese, ls beating the waters with
long bamboo sticks to frighten the flab
into an eight or ten foot squarish net
which is lowered into the river from a
framework en the bank by a system of
wheels and ropes and pulleys and
hoisted up again when the catch is
complete. I must confess that when
the fish in the curry chanced to be
dried instead of decayed I found the
concoction decidedly toothsome. In
fact, a really good curry la in a class
apart, and one must go to India or the
far east to get it at its best Sometimes the natives eat pork and oftentimes chicken, but for the most part
rice and the flsh curry constitute their
chief diet, supplemented by the fruit of
the country, of **jj|lch there are many
kinds—mangosteen, mnugo, pineapple,
banana, orange, breadfruit and that
most healthful and serving of all Siamese fruits, the papaya, which grows
back from the water and ls a greenish
oval melon tbat suggests cantaloupe
when opened.—Outing.

Nerve splicing, or restoring dead
nerves to life, is one of the latest
achievements of surgery. And, though
the process is still Iq its infancy, it ls
believed in medical circles that the operation will one day become as common as trepanning. Three cases have
already resulted ln perfect success.
The cure for paralysis and palsy ls
brought about by means of this process. In the case of young children palsy is brought about by some accident
of birth which compresses the nerves
which radiate from the apinal cord
and if ln the upper part of the body
produces paralysis ln the arms. The
technical name for thia disease la
"birth nalsy."
Paralysis ln old people or those advancing in years is sometimes due to
this accident, though it more usually
comes from the decay of the principal
nerve.
Two children victims of birth palsy
have been experimented upon with
such success that tbe patients are as
well as the most anxious mother could
wish. Dr. Clark, one of the operating
physicians, has recently explained before an audience of medical men exactly how the operation ls performed.
The nerves which »ipply motion to the
affected limbs are severed from sa
close to the spinal cord as possible
and then grafted to the nearest trunk
line. If no complications arise ln course
of time the delicate threads unite, and
the paralyzed parts take on fresh life.
Naturally the operation is exceedingly
difficult, because the nerves which radiate from the upper part of the splnnl
cord are so great in number and cross
and recross each other in so complex a
manner. Another difficulty lies in the
fact that anaesthetics must be used
sparingly, for the longer the patient is
under their influence the harder it is to
follow the nerve threads—Baltimore

"BREED UP" YOUR GRAIN AND BANISH WEEDS
WITH   A
Chatham Fanning Mill
Let us show you
the way to 40-
bushel wheat and a
weedless  farm, the
CHATHAM
FANNING   MILL
way. Pay us when
it pays for itself,

Let us double the

Pay   us  Nov.   1st,

The farmer's life is a constant battle with the weeds. A farm gets better and better or worse and worse ; if the weeds are not
defeated they soon bury farm and farmer under their parasitic legions. Mid the struggle with the weeds still another strugrle goes
on, the fight against grainless stalks and shrivelled, shrunken grain. Like begets like and every grain stalk is bound, if deeding
be neglected, to have many undeveloped, shrunken or unfertile grains thereon. If they are planted what happens?—more grain
stalks of the same kind spring up, lhe pollen from their sickly tips fertilizes other healthy tips and begets a grain field full of barren
stalks taking just as much nourishment from the soil as actual grain bearers. Likewise, the weeds appear, no effort being made to
rid the seed grain of their foul presence, and they have increased a hundredfold.
The problem is clear: you as a practical man, know these troubles as grim realities and yon should plan to stop them. Let
ns show you how you can do it with a
CHATHAM FANNING MILL
how each year your land will become freer and freer of weeds aatil the farm is clear of tbem : let us show you how you can get
fancy prices for every bu»hel of your grain for Seed, how your farm can be made to yield 40 bushels of No. I hard wheat to tht* acre.
The Chatham Fanning Mill is the worker of these farm wonders. It is a seed Separator that rids your harvest ol nil foul
weed-seeds, pigeon weed, cockle,mustard and especially wild oats. It turns foul weed.seeds and cracked, imperfect grains from money-
takers 10 money-makers for you feed them to stock for profit instead of replanting them to renew their soil-eshaustine growth and
labor loss. ■
The Chatham Fanning Mill is a Seed Grader that delivers to yon, pure as virgin gold, the large, full, plump and perfect grains
that sell at top prices or, if sown, will bring torth from your land other harvests more perfect still.
No (arm pays ju:,! because il happens so to do. It takes brains to win. Weeding wilh a hoe is a heartbreaking task, the
cultivator is but little better: why not get rid of that pest of weeds altogether when a Chatham Fanning Mill makes it such an easy
niatter ? Some weed plants carry as many as 375,000 seeds on a single stalk : think what that means ii Ihey are replanted There
is haidly any market for low giade grain. Let a quantity of cockle, mustard or wild oats creep into your product and down goes
your grade while down goes your price. If you sow uniform, perfect grain it will all ripen at the same time; theie will be no loss
from harvesting short, immature, unripe (^rain-heads, and practically the whole crop will grade No. I, Old style mills hardly did
more than separate grain from chaff, light and heavy grains were more or less mixed and f ml weed seeds ever present. To plant
such seed meant rapid crop degeneiation and a weed exhausted soil. The only Fanning Mil. lhat cleans and grades with abso
lute accuiacy and perfection every seed or grain that grows on earth is the Chatham.
IT SEPARATES OATS FROM WHEAT BETTER AND FASTER THAN ANY MACHINE MADE.
There are many other fanning mills but the Chatham is the superior of them all.
It has an automatic device which keeps the screens and riddles free from clogging : it h**l 17 screens, insuring a wide range
of work and accurate adaptability to the particular work at hand : it has both side and end shake : a screw feed insures regularity
and us automatic bagging device is the greatest labor saver on any mill made.
IT IS EASY RUNNING, QUICK ACTION, AND CLEANS 40 to 60 BUSHELS OF ORAIN PER HOUR
Repairs, which are rare!? needed, are cheap, always on hand and easy to get. The
Chatham Fanning Mill has been a prise winner wherever shown. The Manitoba
wheat that won the Grand Prise at the Taris Exposition ol 1900 and the Gold medal
at Charleston, S.C., 1902, was cleaned wilh a Canadian Chatham Fanning Mill.
The prize grains from Oregon and Colorado at St. Louis World's Fair were cleaned
by a Chatham Fanning Mill. Over 100,000 are in use, every one giving unqualified
satisfaction. Mills sold in 1867 are in use to-day, as good as ever. The Chatham
Fanning Mill is absolutely guaranteed for five years. These are a few of the
reasons why the Chatham Fanning Mill is belter than iny other mill made. The
Chatham Mill pays lor itself before you pay us : the saving on five acres of grain (or
one year pays for it. w» will sell vou a Chatham Panning Mill and you naed

Courage, aa a personal quality, Ib
one of the dominating characteristics
of tbe peoples of new countries. Physical courage was to a certain extent indispensable to overcome the
obstacles, difficulties and disappointments incident to pioneer life and the
forming of new settlements. When
this necessity had passed, owing to
tho establishment of modern institutions, and the preservation ot law
and order and respect of tho rights
of property, the exercises of this
quality of courage was transferred
from tho realm of physical protection
to that of commerce. Men calculated
chances coolly, and, knowing tho
risks Involved, took them with a quiet
daring and without a prevision of ul.
floats, results that would astound one
used to the strictly safe business
transactions of older communities.
And, moreover, these risks were
taken by men who elsewhere would
havo bees considered boys—who in
Burepe and In the East would be ln

MRS.    MILLER,  63    NOTRE    DAME
ST., WINNIPEG,  MAN.:
wrltaa as follows about her precarious
condition before using PSYCHINE:
I am certainly thankful for what
the Dr. Slocum treatment as embodied
in PSYCHINE did for me. "Some years
ago I was almost laid up with weak
lungs. Oh, how they used to pain, and
my cough was very bad when I would
go out. My appetite was very poor,
and my stomach waa greatly disordered. Today I am strong and well, and
fe«l that PSYCHINE has brought me
permanent relief. I feel a new woman
now and am able once more to attend
my housework for which I had lost all
Interest." Told In the fewer possible
words, these are the facts: Sufferers
with Coughs, Colds, La Grippe, Pneumonia, Bronchitis, Consumption, Night
Sweats, Chills and Feelings of Depression or General Weakness or Decline,
use PSYCHINE and are cured, many
after older methods of treatment have
failed. People who could afford a
physician take PSYCHINE, while In
many cases doctors advise PSYCHINE.

A singular distinction was established between the sexes in accordance
with the general savage theory of the
inferiority, social and otherwise, of
tlie female, which ls found to have prevailed universally ln the south sea Islands at the time of tbelr discovery
und for long afterward during a period covered by the early missionary
voyages and labors. Setting aside cannibal feasts at tbe end of a successful
war expedition, when captives and victims were abundant and were roasted
and devoured, tbe usual food of tbe
men of these islands ln ordinary circumstances was bog's flesh, with a variety of fish from the surrounding
ocean, together wltb cocoanuts and
plantains, but the women were forbidden to eat or touch tbe provisions
sacred to male consumption, and an infringement of tbls usage was rarely
overlooked, but met wltb the penalty
of death.
The system of food taboo denied, under the same penalty, to tbe sex the
Use of the fire at which the warrior's
meal was prepnred, the house ln which
he sat to eat and the basket ln which
bis provisions were stored. Such items
of iood as native custom assigned to
the women were preserved by them
apart, deposited ln distinct baskets, to
be cooked when required at a separate
fire and devoured ln solitude in a little)
but specially erected for tbe purpose.

The Dominion Government did a
good tiling for tho farmers of Canada
when it placed certain grades offence
wire on the free list a few years ago.
Since then galvanized smooth wire
Nos. 9, 12 and Ki, which are most used
in farm fencing, has been Kept down
in price to a place, which enabled thou- I
•sands of farmers to replace old un*
sightly, wasteful, wooden fences with!
inai, new wire structures, thereby Improving thoir own property and enhancing tlie value of the surrounding
neighborhood, Now it transpires that
pressure Is being brought to bear upon
the Government to go back to the old
order of i binns by Imposing a customs duty mi these grades of wire.
That such a change would work injury
to the fanning community admits of
nn argument, At present, practically
none of the grades of wire on the free
'ist are manufactured in Canada, so
that any duty that would be put on
the wire would prove an equal tax
upon tho consumer—the farmer. A
tariff of say 25 per cent, woultl ua*
iMiibteiily enhance the cost of fencing fully ten to fifteen cents per rod.
I'liis would mean that the owner of a
medium-sized farm would have to
bear an extra tax of fully $150 to
fence his farm. Were fencing nu unimportant matter there would be do
reason for alarm, hut with the passing of the old fences, and the increasing attention to stock raising, new
fencing Is en absolute necessity.
lu tho older parts of the Dominion
tbe improvement of farm buildings
and tiie construction of new fences
bavo been making very rapid stride'
during the past few years, and it
would prove a very unfortiinato matter if a check were given to this much-
needed advance by tlio imposition < r
a inx that could work no benefit to
[the farmer and al the same time ham-
'per the Canadian manufacturers of
fencing who uso wire ns a raw mater
Ial. Bather than hamper farm improvement, and demoralize an Industry Important to agriculture, Tiy placing wire which Is now admitted freo
of duty on the double list, it would
bo much better to wipe out tho present, tariff of CO per cent, on Nos. 7
nnd 11, which would enable farmers
to get. a stronger stylo of fence without Increasing tlio cost

THE SLOCAN DRILL,
Slocan, B.C
FRIDAY. FEBRUARY 24, 1905.
KDITOHIAl,   UKO l'l* IN SIS.
For the seven months ending with
January 39,685 immigrants arrived in
Canada, being an increase of 7304
*i>ver tbe same time last year.
Last year the published dividends
ol the various mining concerns ta
North America aggregated upwards of
190,000,000. Business methods applied to mining yield haudsome returns.
In the legislatiur'on Saturday.Hon.
Mr. Green stated it was the intention
of the government to shortly cancel
the Columbia & Western land reserve.
Such an act would be of import here,
as it would open to settlement all the
lands in the lattle'Sloean and contiguous valleys, as well as giving folk a
chance to get at valuable timber
tracts. For years there has been much
scheming, conniving, wire-pulling,and
money wasted in an effort to corral the
timber, and it will lie to the public interest to have tho matter fairly and
honestly adjusted.
Should"the government make good
its intentions, the people of the province, whether in organized municipalities or otherwise,will be compelled
to take a greater financial interest iu
their schools, lt is contended the
present system .bears too hardly on
the provincial exchequer aud prevents
an easy adjustment between receipts
and expenditures. Were power given
to levy rates upon outside people
making use of municipal schools, it
would lessen the burdens of the cities.
Juat such a move would particularly
benefit Slocan, for instance.
Victorians are indulging in rosy
dreams because of the C.P.R. buying
the E. & N. road, predicting that the
Island will have a great boom for the
next ten years. Besides extending the
railway in various directions, the Canadian Pacific people are credited with
the intention to erect smelting works
and develop the iron deposits on the
Island on an immense scale. Vancouver Island has remarkable riches
in minerals, timber ami agricultural
lands, and it is to be hoped its people
may derive to the full all the advantages to be earned from the development of those resources.
The Drill and the Sandon Standard
are being condemned in some quarters
as knockers for stating there were reasons for dissatisfaction among mine
owners liecause of the treatment accorded them by the local  smelters.
Unrest has existed for a long time iu
the Slocan and the articles appearing
i.M the local papers  aneiit the smelter
situation are   but   tbe pulse beats of
public feeling in the camp. Facts and
figures are being presented that can
not lie denied  by the smelter people
and the public nre beginning to real
ize that thore has beeu, and  is, just
grounds for complaint.   Tin:  Dmi.i.
has instanced the treatment accorded
the dry ores  of  this division by the
experience of the Ottawa mine, and
good has  resulted, for  it is  not too
much to hope things in the future will
bo different for   that property.   For
the wet ores the Standard is conduct
ing au intelligent   nnd   telling campaign, directed principally against the
Hall  Mines   smelter, at  Nelson.   In
last week's issue the Standard gives
prominence to a communication from
H. T. Twigg, New Denver, which may
lie taken   as  a  semi-official presentment of the case from the silver lead
mineowners.   He submits a table de
tailing  the   freight  and    treatment
charges upon various grade ores shipped from the camp, ranging OS high
as 188.68 -wr ton.   As in the case of
the dry ores, the  table shows that the
higher grade wet ore* are penalized
a\ circumstance   that   reflects  lasting
shame upon   the   local   smelters and
constituting a decided hindrance to
the advent of new capital into tin
country.   It has been stated bv tho
smelter people and sundry of their
supporters that smelter charges have
not been increased since 1902, and to
a limited extent it is true. But how
different things appear when the facts
stand revealed. One grade of ore is
treated at the old figure, while others
of increasing richness are penalized
with no light touch. By giving publicity to these undeniable facts relative to smolter rates, the Slocau press
are rendering the milling industry a
real and beneficial service, by imparting to people a knowledge of the
primal influence that is thwarting the
development and growth of this section of Kootenay. Instead of condemnation, thanks should biS tendered the
local papers, and especially so to the
Standard.
