Haven't you any  gentlemen here? Gentlemen ot  leisure, who do not work."  ."Sure, we've got them ��� here, too.  Bui, in this country we call them  'bums' or 'tramps.'  Parisites. .  There is a class   of people in all  communities who arc puzzles to the  most of us.    Puzzles in that we can  not   figure  out   lo   our  satisfaction  how   they   manage to keep up  appearances.     They are never known  to work, j-ct always have a 'jingle.'  Probably- it  is   not so much of a  puzzle   i(   studied-   out    carefully.  With   some  the  sj'stetn  is  to get  credit al one store   uptto the straining point.    Then a few payments of  ' say   five   dollars   allows   them  go  twenty or thirty stronger.     Finally,  the business man refuses to give up  any more goods  unless the,cash  is  ���  produced.     At  this .statement  the  'Johnny' gets highly indignant and  threatens to do no more business in  thc house, besides,   he  will use his  influence    with    his    friends   and  'knock' the  concern   every  chance  he gets.     This is the modus oper-  endi,   which  is  repeated  at   every  store in the district  where the owner is unfortunate.aud foolish enough  to take chances.  Unfortunately there are drones  in every human hive, sorry to say  so, but Atlin has not been missed.  Such drones should receive the  punishment meted out in the insect world���death or explusion.  Anyone who wants it may find  work, in this camp at any rate.  Those who absolutely reFuse to  work, of-their own accord, should  be compelled, by law, to.do so. If  they owe money all over town, the  accounts should be gathered together and, as the 'wood-pile' is cut up  so much is set aside for creditors.  There is no patent on this idea and  we would not sue if it were adopted.  Opposition and competition is so  keen now-a-days there is no room  for the idler and thc 'star boarder.'  Anyone, who has health, strength  and a little intelligence, and refuses  to contribute something to the  world's wealth, is an object of pity,  strongly mingled with contempt.

MacLean, the member  for Lunenburg, Nova Scotia; and  seconded by Mr. Wm. Sloan, member For Comox-Atliu, B. C. Mr.  Sloan took up ihe Pacific end of the  case and handled the matter like a  veteran. He made a most vigorous  speech, urging the importance of  the preservation of the   fisheries  of  Canada for Canadian fishermen.  i  The district of Comox-Atlin, embracing as it does about one-half the  sea-coast line of the Dominion,  must necessarily be vitally interested in all matters relating to fisheries.  The inshore and deep sea fisheries, contiguous lo this coast line,  have possibilities unequalled by any  other similar extent of coast-line,  probably in the world. The present care and future preservation and  development of this great natural  wealth is of material importance to  the people of this district, and it is  with pleasure that we remark the  endeavors of our representative,  Mr. W. Sloan, in the Dominion.  We add, that his speech received  the hearty endorsation of the  House.  Groceries aaidl Provisions  My Goods are all Fresh and  of the best quality.    Prices  moderate.

West, certainly  ought to know' what he is talking  about, as be has perhaps more cattle on the ranges in Alberta than  any other single stock-owner.  "These stories of cattle perishing  by thousands in Alberta, are all  pure fabrications. ��� A few old and  weak cattle have died, but not iu  any. greater number than die in the'  course of any winter.  -, "Some people seem to get unduly  excited when they see a little snow  fall on the ranges. While the  snow 'drifted deep ' iu places it  was only about six inches in depth  on the level around Calgary, and  the cattle had no difficulty in pawing through that'to get at the grass f  beneath. There is not the slightest foundation for any of these  absurd stories about tbe thousands  of dead carcasses strewing the  ranges. There will be no rise in  the price oF beef, and tbe cattle will  be in as fine condition as ever in  the course ofa few weeks."
