SENSATION  AT !'U.Vi:HTON.
.lack UolMTtN Taken to Nelnon on a Serious Charge.
Silverton was tho centre of a sensation last week that has stirred the
whole country. It ccmes as a sequel
to the introduction of a Chinese cook
at the Emily Edith mine,by M.Davys,
of Nelson, the lessee. When the chink
arrived the men quit work and a public meeting at Silverton pronounced
against Mongolian labor. As men
afterwards wo.it to work at the mine
and the chink remained.it waa thought
the incident was closed. But apparently not so.
On the evening of the 17th Davys,
\V. Koch.and a number of others were
in the barroom of the Victoria Hotel
when a rifle shot was heard.and a bullet lodged iu the back of the harassing close to the bead of Davys, it being an alleged attempt to assassinate
the latter. Provincial Officer Black
was summoned from New Denver and
Supt. Bullock-Webster came up from
Nelson next day. Their investigations
led to the arrest of Jack Roberts, it
being claimed he had made threats
against Davys,because of the bringing
in of the Chinaman. He had his preliminary hearing that evening liefore
fusiici.'s of the Peace Rashdall and
Hunter, resulting in Roberts being
committed for trial at Nelson, passing
through here to that place on Thursday.
lt is claimed that Roberts shot from
a tree on the opposite side of the
street, and that the footprints in the
snow from his cabin to the tree fitted
Iiis lubbers exactly. Though the
blind of the barroom was partially up,
it was possible to Bee the heads of the
people therein quite plainly from
where the shot was fired.
M. S. Davys, at the hearing.testified
to the circumstances relative to bringing in tlie Chinese cook. As be wug
starting for Nelson th<* dav after tbe
public meeting, the accused came up
to him at the Silverton wharf and
as1.;-I if ne was goiug to take the
(Ihinaman out. und he replied, "That
is my business." Accused Raid: "Vou
nad better or I'll fix you." Witness
1,'scribed goi, g to the barroom of the
Victoria Hotel, aliout 5 50on the evening of the ITth.and seeing the accused
sitting there. In the barroom were
Messrs. Brooks, Koch, Ring, Wilson
and Daigle. The prisoner left the
room aud went out on the street, but
the rest of the coinpanv lined up to
the bar and took a drink. Some 15
minutes passed and while they were
all chatting there was a report as if a
firecracker or a torpedo had gone oir.
and the witness noticed a hole in tin
plaster right over Daigle's head. At
the time he heard the report, he felt
something sting him across the side
of the chock. The course of the bul
let was traced by the witness through
the window and staircase partition to
a picture at the back of the bar.
H. A. Cleve, formerly of this town,
was the other chief witness. He swore
that ou the evening of the 17th, about
li o'clock, he was in his rooms oppo
site the Victoria ho'.el.and lhat he saw
the accused coming to the tree on thr
vacant lot, from the opposite Bide of
Lake Btreet, The accused made two
steps and turned to the right and a
few seconds   later witness   heard  the
dick of the  trigger of a rifle.   The
next instant he saw the accused raise
the rifle qn au angle either with the
butcher shop   or   the   Victoria hotel.
After the accused tired he tinned to
the left and made a circle to the trail
leading across the ball ground. After
accused had made six or eight steps,
witness started for lhe kitchen door
and opened it. He turned around and
looked out and the light from the
kitchen shone on accused plainly. The
witness shut the kitchen door and
jumped back Into the bedroom. Five
minutes or so after the shot was tired
the witness went to the front door and
smelt powder smoke.
Roberts was formerly foreman ai
tho Kepublic mine here and has always borne an exemplary character,
People are loth to believe him guilty
of the clinic, though lhe evidence
against him is so direct. Accused is
an Englishman by birth aud has been
in the country Blnce the early days.

MI.NKICAI. OUTPUT.
Inn-cute In   Anion lit of Ore mined In the
Province I.uut Year.
From the provincial department of
mines it has beeu ascertained that the
approximate output of minerals in the
province of British Columbia for the
year which has just closed is in excess
of that of the year liefore by $2,274,-
046. The total value of the minerals
produced within the confines of the
province during the year ended on
December 81, 1804, was $19,770,000.
The total amount of mineral produced
during the year other than coal was
¥15.800,000.
The amount of gold produced, both
from quart/, and placer, was in excess
of that produced iu 1903. In 1904 the
amount of gold produced was $6,400,-
000, while in 1903 it was $5,883,028,an
increase of over half a million. The
silver product ofthe province was also
in excess of that of the previous year.
in 1904 it amounted to $2,200,000,
which wa.s $078,1528 in excess of 1903.
Last year the amount of copper
mined in the various districts showed
a slight increase, the total output being $4,600,000, Lead, too, increased
very considerably over 1908, the output being $1,500,000. The coal and
coke produced amounted to $4,882,267
being practically the same as in the
year before.
The approximate statement of the

BLACK PRINCE IN I.Ct'K,
The Pioneer Mining Co., operating
tlie Black Prince group, is in luck, an
important strike of ore having been
made on the property lasl week. Ever
since arrangements wei'O made for
taking over the group in connection
with the Bank of England and Two
Friends.opei'iitions have been confined
lo the Black I'rince fraction, and it is
in the No. 2 level ou that ground that
an entirely new body qf ore has been
opened up. The paystreak is almost
live feet in width, and 11 inches of it
assays 21fl o/. and b tter in silver.while
three feet of it will average up to llo
OZ a ton.
The new strike is most gratifying to
the coinpanv and Ihey wiil make the
most of it. Since the lirst of tho vear
shipments have been regular from
other ore reserves, and it wns the intention to send out 1200 tons or more,
The new strike will enable the output
to be largely increased ainl as much
ore as possible will be shipped before
the roads break up in the Bpl'ing,
Many more men have beeu added to
the force this week, some from town
and others coming in from Nelson.

Geo. Robertson Had Rheumatism and

Doesn't Know What It It to Bt

Montreal, Que., Jan. 16.—(Special).—Mr, Caeo. Robertson, a well-
known citizen living at 392 St. James
St., Montreal, is one of the many people in this city who are never without Dodd's Kidney Pills in the house.
Like all the others Mr. Robertson has
his reasons for this and is always
ie«.1y to give tbem.
"I was a total wreck before I started to uso Dodd's Kidney Pills." Mr.
Robertson says. "I had been troubled
with Rheumatism and Dropsy for live
years. I had to be tapped to relieve
ine of the pain. My arms and legs
were terribly swollen.
"I bad just begun to get downhearted when a friend induced me to
try Dodd's Kidney Pills. Fiefore I
bad used the second box I felt bettor.
Seven boxrs cured me so completely
that now I dou't Know what lt U to

Last Bandar •■ That Ship.
"As a lad almost," said an old sea enp*
tain, "I became second mate of a Nova
Scotia sailing vessel bound from Liverpool to tbe provinces. It was on t
Saturday that we left port, aud the following morning the tug which had
placed us to windward off Holyhead
left us.
"We were making ready for the trip
across the north Atlautic, but our
minds were diverted from work by seeing the skipper place a blackboard upon
the break of the poop upon which was
written 'Sunday.' The skipper, a thorough type of tbe seaman, called all
heads aft. He said: 1 want you to
know what is on that board. For you
fellows who cnn't read I will spell It.'
Thea deliberately he said: 'S-u-n-d-a-y!
You understand it, don't you?' Then
he gave the word to throw the board
Into the sen. Over it went, and ns it
took the waves he said, 'You all know
that was Sunday, don't you?' 'Yes,'
answered the men. 'Well,' he continued, 'that will be the last Sunday you
wlll see on this ship.'   And lt was."
Sho*   Shops   In   Japan.
Like all other shops in Japan, a snot
tbop opens a broad side to the street.
It seems a misnomer to call lt shot
shop, a place where you can only buy
sandals or clogs, things we nre not accustomed to call shoes. They are footgear anyway.
There Is a low platform in front, upon
which the customer Bits and drinks tea
while making bis or her purchases, tbe
shopkeeper meanwhile squatting on
his heels and discussing tbe news of
the day.
The sandals worn by the rickshaw
coolies are called warafl. They are
woven of rice straw snd are sold for
half a cent a pair. They are made ln
tht country villages, and the foreigner
watches the weaving witb amused interest
The prehensile big toe of a Japanese

People Who Live In  Nests.
Travelers wbo have returned from
the heart of Africa and the Australasian continent tell wonderful stories of
nest building people wbo inhabit tba
wilds of those countries. In the bushmen of Australia we find perhaps the
lowest order of men that are known.
They are so primitive that they do not
know enough to build even tbe simplest form of hut for shelter. The
nearest they can app%nich to lt ls to
gather a lot of twigs and grass and,
taking thero Into a thicket or Jungle,
build a nest for a home. Tbe nest is
usually built large enough for tbe family, and if the latter be very numerous then the nests are of u very large
size. Sometimes the foliage above will
form a natural covering, but there ia
uever any attempt at constructing a
protection from the rain and storms.

"A certain cadi of Bagdad had bee*
In his youth a lishermau, and, to keej
himself in mind of hia humble origin,
there was always spread uptn his dinner tuble a huge fishing net.
"People admired the cadi for thU
exhibition of humility. He was rich,
and his bouse was sumptuous. But,
amid all that elegance, the net, the
sign of the man's lowly birth, was always prominently displayed.
"The story of the net spread through
the city aud finally reached the ears of
the caliph. He, ln due time, seut for
the cadi, took him iuto his favor and
made him his grand vizier.
" 'Thus,' said Ilaroun al Raschid, 'wt
reward humility.'
"From the dny of his appointment

PALE WEAK GIRLS       '~~
6btaln   Bright    Eyes,    Rosy   Cheeks
and  Perfect   Health Through tht
Use of Dr. Williams'  Pink
Pills.
Miss Jennie Burrows, Rigault, Que.,
says:   "1 write to thank you for the
wonderful benefit your Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills hnvo done me.    I am npw
22 years of ago, but from the timo I
was   fourteen   I   did not enjoy good
health.  A couple ot" years ago, while
attending school I grew worse,   and
the Sisters in charge called In a doctor.    After   treating   me   for   some
time, without any   improvement,   he
told me that I must discontinue my
studies.    When   I   got   home   I   was
sent to Caledonia Springs.   Tho flrst
month I was there it seemed to help
me, but, like all the medicine I had
taken, the help was only temporary,
and I relapsed  into  my former  condition,    I grew  so pale   and   wax-like
that strangers called me the wax figure.    My  heart   would   beat so violently that I could hear the noise It
made.    1   waa  so weak  I  could not
walk a block   without   support,    or
without  resting  two  or  three  times.
My  bead   would   sometimes   ache   so
violently  as to almost  drive  me  wild,
and at other times I would grow so
dizzy  that  I   could   not   stand.    All
this' time   I    was  taking   treatment,
but   all   the   time was getting worse
and worse, and  I  hardly  hoped ever
to be better  again.    At   this  time  I
read   ln  a  newspaper of a somewhat
similar caso   cured   by the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, md I determined to try them.   By the time I  had
used a half dozen boxes   I   had    improved a great deal.    From  that on,
week by week, 1 gained   in   health  and
strength,   until   by  the  time   I   had
used  eleven   boxes   I   was   enjoying
better  health   than   I   bad   done   for
years.    I   am   now   well  and  strong,
anr,   thank   (lod   for the blessing of
good  health your wonderful  Dr.  Wit
llama' Pink Pills ).uve conferred upon
me,    I would  strongly  advise   every
weak and  ailing girl  who  reads  this
to lose no time   in   taking   Dr.  Williams'  Pink  Pills."

A Friend of Washington.
While mnny persons have known
Lincoln ond Grant and a few were acquainted with Washington and Lincoln, so fnr us I nm nwaro but one person was ever born Into tbls world who
knew the triumvirate of uncrowned
American kings. That Individual was
Horace lllnney, leader of the Philadelphia bur and among the foremost lenders of the profession throughout tht
land, with whom I spent a memorable
hour ln tbt year 1871. During thnt delightful Interview he stnted thut when
a youth bis home wns nenr President
Washington's Philadelphia residence,
that he hnd met hlin almost dally fot
several years and thnt he frequently
held conversations with tht general.
Mr. BInney nlso mentioned the Interesting fuct tbnt he hnd been acquainted with every president of the United

An African Stssehs"E».
A thousand years before Roman
legions looked on Stonehcnge, a
temple not unlike it in general conception, but far greater und fashioned with au architectural skill incomparably more advanced than that of
tho ancient Briton, was built in
South Africa. R. N. Hall recently
lectured to a university college audience on the re-discovered features of
this temple, which is known as Zimbabwe in Rhodesia. By some it is
thought that the same adventurous
race of Phoenicians whq brought the
religion of the sun to Britain, and
possibly inspired the plan of tht
temple at Stonehenge may have been
the pioneers of the gold-seeking race
who raised the temple at Zimbabwe
ns a monument, of the prosperity of
the country. Mr. Hall said that the
great ruined temple wns not the oldest temple in Rhodesia, though it is
by far thc finest in plan, architecture and importance; and that, probably, it was built after the other
temples when the prosperity of the
country was assured and wns still
growing. It was built, like other
temples of the sun, with a painstaking reference to the position of the
sun at the summer and winter solstices and its orientation diverged so
far from that which would be correct to-day as to warrant the helief,
which is strengthened by other reasons, that it was built in some
years between 1200 B.C. and 1400
B 0. Tho walls of Great Zimbabwe,
Mr. Hall mentioned, were from twenty-five to thirty-live feet high, und a
wagon with a team of oxen could be
driven along tho outer rampart. Next
year the British Association is to
hold a sectional meeting within these
walls, where for ""three thousand
yeurs sacrifices hnvo been offered on
the temple altar. A Portuguese writer
mentions such a sacrifice four hundred years ago; the natives who have
used the altar for this purpose beyond memory or record offered a sacrifice there last December.
NEWFOUNDLAND'S PROGRESS

Increase Your Income $320
"W\0 you realize how much money is made from poultry raising ? Do you know th^t many owners
**** of Chatham Incubators are earning $320 a year and not devoting more than a half-an-hour a
day to it? If you" owned a Chatham Incubator your wife or your daughter could attend to it
and add at least $320 to the profits of your farm. That is more than many another department of
your farm produces which occupies a lot of your time and represents considerable money invested.
Let us figure it out.
A No. 2 Chatham Incubator holds from 100 to 120 eggs. Though an .average hatch is eighty
per cent, we will deduct some to pay for oil and feed and make up for accidents. Say 80 chicks out
of 120 eggs. That is a fair average. Suppose you only take off eight hatches in a year. That is
640 chickens.    They are worth about a dollar a pair.    That is $320.00 profit fro..i a
CHATHAM INCUBATOR
on which you have not as yet been asked to pay one cent.
There is always a big demand for poultry. It is increasing every year. The value of the
poultry exported to Great Britain in 1896 was $18,992 ; in 1902 it had increased to $239,986. One
English poultry house say they could handle 36,000 chickens a week. The increase in the
Canadian demand has been even greater, poultry exporting firms getting such good prices here
that they didn't need to ship them. The demand for poultry is ever increasing. That means
continued good prices for poultry raisers.
You cannot make money in the poultry business without an Incubator and Brooder. If you
would raise chickens for the market you cannot depend on the setting hen. It is absolutely
beyond your control, whereas an Incubator is easily controlled by you.
Choosing the best Incubator is the problem. With makers claiming so much for their
machines you are left in a quandary. We settle all questions by the most liberal offer ever made.
If we hadn't the best Incubator on the market and unquestioned financial strength we could not
make it.   Here is the offer :

MR.  E. 8. ZINGO
Editor   and   Proprietor   of   the
Wapella   Post
Mr. B. S. Zingg of Wapella is a
living illustration of the truth of the
saying current among newspapermen,
that the man who '.as the aliility to

lm.; all the characteristics necessary
to success In almost any undertaking,
As un editor Mr. Zingg has a splendid record, hut. such is his irrepressible activity, that his editorship is
unly  one  of    the  many  forms of his
Protean    activity.     The    production
wc Ily of such a newspaper as the
Wapella i'ost might well demand ami
consume the whole of the time and
talent of its proprietor. But with Mr.
Zingg it is otherwise—a mere segment of his work, nothing hut a
necessary ami incidental part of the
week's   routine.
Mr. Zingg not only writes the editorial and loeal matter for the Post,
rustles the ads and lnoks afler subscriptions and the accounts, hut runs
a furniture business, does a little In
real estate anil dabbles in insurance.
Even these ilo not keep entirely occupied the energetic Wap.-lla editor, lliis the president of the local board of

Mr. Zingg's local patriotism does not
stop hi*re. He is a member of the
Wapella town council, and one of thi:
foremost and most forceful figures in
municipal and local life in the com*
imiiiity.

While the professional ability of an
editor can always be best estimated
by tho appearance and standing of
the newspaper he controls, it is altogether silent as to his personal
history, and the few facts following
concerning Mr. Zingg will be welcomed by those who hitherto have
known him only through the Post, ar
as one of the most reliable members
of the Western Canada Press association.
H. S. Zingg was horn at Hamburg,
Waterloo County, Ontario, April 18,
1872, and is therefore but a young
man, He was educated at. the public
and high schools of Walkerton and
Hanover, after which lie entered the
office of the Hanover Post. Commencing as "devil" he climbed until he
reached the rank of full-fledged
journeyman. Then he removed to
Toronto. He continued in the printing business until he was 20 years
of age, when he went on the road
as "drummer" for a wholesale furniture house, travelling in Ontario
and Quebec. For six years he remained in this husiness, receiving a
thorough training therein.
Taking the advice of Horace Greeley and the niavy others who have
echoed the New York editor's utterances, Mr. Zingg came West in 1S99,
and in October of that year established the Wapella Post, which since that
time has continued to shed the lustre
of the true light of knowledge in
ever-increasing volume.
As said before, Mr. Zingg is yet
young, like most Western editors, and
as can be seen by his "counterfeit
presentment" at the head of this
article, more than passably good looking. He is deservedly popular with
his fellow scribes in the West, and
few were more welcome than he and
his amiable wife at, tho annual Press
pilgrimages which marked the palmy
era of tlie West en; Canada Press association. Mr. Zingg has already done
much in the realm of journalism since
In* came West, and more is expected

The symptoms ot dyspepsia, biliousness, liver complaint, kidney disease and rheumatism point to the
presence of poisonous matter in the
system.
The flrst thing Dr. Chase's Kldney-
Llver Pills do is to thoroughly cleanse
the system Of this waste matter by
causing free action of the kidneys,
liver and bowels.
This result ls not brought about in
a harsh and Irritating way, but is naturally and thoroughly accomplished.
The flow of bile from the liver aids
digestion and ensures continued regular action of the bowels; the free action of the kidneys removes the uric
acid, which would otherwise cause
rheumatism or stone in the bladder.
Digestion, assimilation and the removing of waste matter are carried
out without palu or discomfort,   and
there is no foothold fer contagious or
other disease.
There is no other preparation possessing this unique and combined action, and none which can possibly
reach such complicated diseases as
Dr. Chase's Kldney-Llver Pills.
Mr. Duncan McPherson, Content,
Alta., writes: "I was for many years
troubled with indigestion and headache, and derived no benefit from the
many remedies I used. A friend advised the use of Dr. Chase's Kldney-
Llver Pills, and after taking four
boxes the result ls that I am once
more in the full enjoyment of the
blessings of good health."

pill a dose, 25 cents a box, at all dealers, or EdmanBon, Bates & Co., Toronto. The portrait and signature of

Instead of the Provincial Mining
Association it should road: the Provincial Abrogation of Kickers.
Tho Lo Roi mine, Rosslaud, is reported to be again paying handsome
monthly profits. If the stock jobber*
would leave that mine, alone for a
whilo, the mining industry would
havf» a chance to redeem itself.
Tho dominion government has decided to divide the Northwest Territories into two provinces, by a lino
running north from the international
boundary. Alberta and Assiniboia
will likely be the names given the new
provinces.  •
On February 4th nominations will
take place in Carlton county, Ont., to
fill a vacancy in the dominion house.
Hon. Mr. Borden will be the Conservative candidate and will not Ixi opposed, the Liberals being.uuxious to
welcome him again to the commons.
The dominion government has once
B?ain sat upon the provincial authorities, having disallowed the immigration act passed at the last legislature.
The educational test bore hardly on
the Japanese and the mikado would
not stand for it, hence disallowance.
A splendid record was made by the
Le Roi No. 2 mine, at Rossland, during last year, and Britishers, as a result, should feel a little more kindly
disposed towards tho province. Another dividend of two shillings a share
has lieen ordered paid to tho stockholders, making three shillings for
1904. After meeting the last dividend
and setting aside $60,000 for depreciation, the company has left a treasury
fund of $80,000.
According to the Calgary papers,
American lumbermen am influencing
their agents in the prairie towns to
circulate petitions.piaying tho dominion government not to impose a duty
ou American lumber. But, in justice
to British Columbia, a duty must lie
imposed on the American article. At
present the situation has a twofold effect: B.C. lumbering industry is languishing for lack-of a market and thc
prairie farmers suffer for want of an
outlet for their stock and produce.
Protection to lumber is in the best interests of the country.
When Johnnies all over the province
are rushing into the preaa to give
their little say as to how bad legislation is killing the mining industry;
and when short-sighted Liberal papers
are declaring that British Columbia is
being strangled to death by taxation,
;t is no wutider outsiders think so
h. iilly of the country. Portions of
the province are dull, as for instance
the Sloean, but British Columbia is
far from being dead. The mineral
Output last year was fully ten per cent
larger than in 190'), and dividends
were nunc numerous. The promise
for 190") is for bettor things than in
l'.Kil. What a happy thing it would
be if legislation could only strangle a
few of the croaking Johnnies.
Byron \. White, of the Sloean Star
mine, Sandon, told the assessment act
commission, at Victoria, that ho considered the two per cent tax on the
output of the mines as a fair and just
lawj and this week he reiterated the
statement in Nelson, stating that so
far ?s his company was concerned he
had no objection to make to the laws
of the province. These views from a
practical mining man, with an established repiitntioiulii not go down with
the "technical experts" of tho Provincial Mining Association, who would
have the provincial government repeal
the act as Iniquitous and unfair. Until a far better law is forthcoming,
views of men lik,. Byron White will'
undoubtedly prevail with the govern
ment and the two per cent tax be re
iaine 1.

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
