The Church of England bazr.ar, held  in the Auditorium Thursday evening,  the 14th inst , was a decided success,  both financially and. otherwise. The  children's drill, which was supervised  by Mrs. Frith and Miss wood, was  given both afternoon and evening and  was quite a treat in itself. In the  evening Mrs. Allison gave a song  which was well received, snd Mr. Kendall gave two which were very much  enjoyed. The tableaux were all great  successes. The "Statuary" was very  realistic, and the "Slich in Time"'  scene caused roars of laughter. The  Santo Claus, Cinderella, Village  Blacksmith, Prospector's Camp, Fortune Telling, all made very pretty pictures. The stalls were tastefully decorated, and the members of the Ladies'  Guild are to be complimented on the  success of their efforts.  The proceeds of the bazaar for the  afternoon and evening amounted to  S265.00.  A Brief Description of the High Grade Mines in the  Vicinity of Greenwood.  By W. HV Je-'-fkry, M. E.  Kb  *>!  m  I. Robert Jacobs, formerly of Green  wood, but now fast becoming rich in  northern Ontario, was a visitor in the  eity from Saturday to Monday last. Ho  had some very rich specimens ot cobalt ore which he was showing to his  friends, and almost caused a stampede.  frun^Greenwood to the East.  The year 1905 has been an eventful  one for the Greenwood and Phoenix  mining camps. The Granby, B. C.  Copper and Dominion Copper Co. have  made big improvements both in their  mines and smelters, but the most  noticeable advancement has been made  ���in the high-grade belt.  THE PROVIDENCE.  The Providence mine has been  worked continuously for the past three  years anda depth of SOO feet has been  reached on the vein. Drifts are now  being run north and south on the vein  from the 500-foot level. At the 300 and  400 levels the vein is drifted on for 600  feet, showing high-grade ore the whole  way. About three years' supply of ore  is now blocked out on the different  levels. The mine is . equipyed with  complete compressor- plant, machine  drills are being used in the stopes as  well as sinking and drifting. P. J.  Dermody if superintendent of the mine  and is working 35 men. He expects to  increase his force very materially in  January, 1906.  THE ELKHORN.  The Elkhorn mine is situated adjoining the Providence on the west  arid part of the property is in the  Greenwood city limits; The Elkhorn  has been worked about tha same length  of time as the Providence and is developed by a shaft 200 feet deep on a  a parallel vein to that of the Providence. The. Elkhorn mineral claim  ���was'purchased ioy Phil McDonald and  Jas. Sutherland about three years ago  on a bond. Mr. Sutherland sunk a  shaft between two old workings and at  a depth of 40 feet he encountered the  ore. Mr. Sutherland is one of the  pioneers of Greeuwood and the Boundary and is known as one of the best  prospectors in the district. He had  faith in the Elkhorn claim when they  bonded it. They sunk the shaft 86  feet, independent of the good showings of ore they encountered, and then  ran drifts north and south for over 300  feet. All this ground above the 86  level has been stoped out. Forty-two  feet was further sunk and another  level opened up and stoped. Oyer  572,000 worth of high grade ore was  shipped to the smelters at Trail and  Nelson and some to the local smeller as  well. Last October, after Messrs. McDonald and .Sutherland had purchased  the H D fraction andlocated the Elkhorn fraction, adjoining ground to lhe  Elkhorn, they incorporated the property into the Boundary-Elkhorn' Mining company. A small amount"of  stock was put ori the market and subscribed for by local people. The mine  is now being worked by the com pany,  wich Dr. J. E. Spankie as managing  director; Phil McDonald, president;  Jas. Sutherland, vice-president; and  H. V. Fuller,  secretary-treasurer, who  Gold Bug will be one of the steady  shippers among the high grade mines  of the Boundary in the near future.  TUB   KCTiK'N. .:.;.,'  The Helen mineral claim was purchased some time ago by Alex. Miller,  who was formerly manager of the  Bank of Halifax at .Rossland and  Grand Forks. Mr Miller took, hold of  the Helen after several other /parties  had tried their luck . at it with very  little success, only sinking 3iH. feet  when a ureal, was encountered. Mr.  Miller drifted.on the break for 40 feet  and eaught the ore again, but only to  sink for 22 feet when another break  was met and drifted on for 46 feet to  the ore. About this time Harry Shafer  took hold of the mine for Mr. Miller  and mapped out a line of development  which has been- adhered to, and a new  shaft has been sunk to the east of the  breaks and tapping the vein and.ore  below them. Fred Hazelwood, ;who  formerly had charge of the Barbara  mine, erected a compressor plant on  the Helen and took a contract for all  sinking and drifting in the mineaud  has done excellent work. This enabled  Mr. Miller to -prove the mine, and in  the near future, he intends installing  an electric hoist for hoisting purposes  and Machine drilling.  THE BARBARA.  This propeety was also purchased by  Alex. Miller, and  Richard   Armstrong  of   Chicago,   who   interested   Chicago-  capital.    About 200 feet of sinking has  been done on the vein, which is quartz  carrying heavy in _ead with silver and-  gold values.   Some drifting has been'  done, but the ore  proper has  not been'  encountered yet, nor will the ore shoot:  be met until  200  to 250 feet   is sunk.  The Barbara is one of the  most promising prospects in the district.  THE  COLT) VISCH.  The Gold I inch is owned by Mark  Madden of Chicago and is being developed by Wm. Madden, a nephew.  The property is showing up well and  shipmentsoare being made as ore is  taken out during development.  THEE P  U  GROUP  was first worked by Mr. McVicar*  when il was simply a prospect.. Mr.  McVicar is the pioneer of the.high-  grade veins. He had the grit to tackle  a good looking vein with little or no  values on tlie surfucc. where, he put  down 25 feet. The high grade v.alues  came in and have remained to, the  present depth of more than 200! feet.  Th~e"E~P"UViilt_"th--"rest"6r the^high-  grade veins, has had its breaks or  faultings, but the ore has always been  caught again where it has been drifted  for on the drag or faulting.... The )_ P  U group carries high in gold and -silver, and is - property which within-  telligent development should be placed  among the big shippers  of  the camp.  are also directors  with  E..G. Warren, ._  R.   P.   Williams   and   H.    Dickinson, i Some  530,000  worth  of ore has  been  Since the 11th October 60  feet  further', .shipped to date from the mine-  has been sunk, following the dip of .the  vein. It is the intention of the company to start drifting again at the 200-  foot level, which will give them about  sixty feet backs between the No. 2 and  No. 3 levels. Some very rich silver  and gold ore is being taken out in the  present development and shipments  will be commenced at once. The mine  has recently been equipped with an  electric hoist.  THE GOLD  HUG.  The Gold Bug mineral claim is just  across Boundary creek fruin the Elkhorn mine, which it adjoins on the  west. A crosscut tunnel has been run  450 feet to tap a vein -which shows on  the surface about 300 feet vertically  above the tunnel. Some of the richest  ore was shipped from the surface  workings of the Gold Bug that ever  went out of the Boundary district. The  The management is J. H. Peel, Spokane, president; W. S." Macey, Phoenix, vice-president; H. V. Fuller, sec-  retary-treasur.r, and Dunem*   Mack'm-  THE  BAY  lying^east of the E P U group is the  only mine in the district showing free  gold in abundance, with little or uo  silver values. It is a gold mine. There  are bunches of tellurium associated  with the free,gold iu a granular quartz  gangue or matrix. Tlie Bay is owned  by H. V. Fuller aud Fred Had and has  been worked for two years continuously. , There are three parallel veins  running through the claim, all carrying values. About S10.000 worth of  ore hits been shipped from the mine,  running over 55100 in   gold   tu the   tou.  THE SKYCAKK  mine lies east of tile Bay and is developed to a depth of 200 feet.

Miller and sold to Chicago capitalists  headed by Ricl.ard Armstrong. The  propert3r lies north of the Bay aud  Skylark and is nev being developed  by a shaft, with electric hoist. Alex,  Miller is managing director and M.  Callahan is superintendent, The mine  is showing up well. The shaft is now  down over one hundred feet wit'rout a  break in the vein. It is the intention  of the company to sink 200 feet and  drift for stoping ore.  THE  CRESCENT  isja rich silver-gold mine] owned [by  Harry Shallenberger of Spokane and  Col. Dickason of Chicago. The mine  is being developed by shaft and drifts.  About fifty tons of ore have been  shipped which gave good returns. An  electric hoist is being installed. Tbe  mine is managed by Mr. Shalleuberger  who is an up-to-date mining man.  THE DO-i* PEDRO,  adjoining the Crescent, is developed  by a shaft in high, grade silver-gold  ore. The property is developed by a  100 foot shaft and 200 feet of drifting.  The Don Pedro is owned by the Lake  Mining company cf Minneapolis and  Harry Shallenberger is manager.  EAST CHANCE.  The Dast Chance mine is a shipper  of high grade ore, and lies north of  the Bay and east of the Preston. Mr.  McVicar, superintendent, has developed the Last Chance to a shipping  stage.  PRINCE  HENRY-AKERCRAIG.  This property is owned by a local  syndicate and is managed by Dr. J. E.  Spankie. It lies north of the EPU  group and Gold Finch, and on the  wagon road from Greenwood to Phoenix. It adjoins the Greenwood city  limits to the east. Walter McDonald  is foreman. .A shaft has been sunk  112 feet, and a drift run north 100 feet,  a'l in ore, showing native silver, galena, and iron and copper pyrites. Ore  is being extracted for shipment. The  mine'is well equipped and proving a  great success.  - THE REPUBIJC  GROUP,  owned by W. T. Smith and situated  two miles south of Greenwood, is a  very promising property. Several  shipments of silver-gold ore have been  made. All that is required now is development. The mine is easy of access and ciose to the C. P. Ry., and the  Dominion Copper company's smelter,  and with development should be a  heavy shipper.  Among the promising properties  that are not working are the Bonny  Belle, Dynamo, Silver Cloud, Silver  King, Simplex, Tip Top, Mavis-, Defiance, Trilby, Strathmore, Fremont,  Coronation, Spokane, D A, Combination, Connection, Twin and Jack Luce.  Greenwood has done much to develop the adjoining claims to her city  but outside capital is needed, as it  takes money to mine.  There are splendid opportunities for  investment here, both in the high-  grade silver-gold and the coppe*--gold  =prospecx_T---More-nioney=has='bee .-made  in developing good prospects than in  purchasing developed mines. Our  shipments of ore and smelter returns  speak for the success of Greenwood  mining district.  All the electric hoists .in use in the  vicinity'of Greenwood were installed  b}' E. G.

This will give, people  an opportunity of getting parcels arriving on Saturday's train.  A. S. Embree was in the city Wednesday. For the past six months he  has been bookkeeper on construction  work for the Bonnington Falls Power  company. The poles are all in as far  as the Greenwood smelter.  G. McD. Hunter arrived from Kaslo  this week, where he has been principal  of the high school for the past 18  months. He has accepted the position  of principal of the Boundary Falls  school for the ensiling year.  Business has been fairly good in the  city the past week, especially for those  handling Christmas goods, but purchases have not been up to expectations, doubtless owing to large purchases in Eastern department stores.  Geo. I). Bryce, formerlv master  mechanic at the Mother Lode mine,  arrived from Chewelah. Wash., the  past week. He is the owner of a ranch  near Chewelah, which he hopes to  have developed to a shipping stage in  another year. Mr. Bryce will probably remain here during the winter.  The Times; is indebted to W. H.  Jeffery, M.E., for the **xcellent write-  up of th high-grade mines in the vi-  cit.ity of Greenwood appearing in this  issue. Being connected with the development of a number of the mines  in an' advisory capacity, and having  charge of development in others, there  is no one in a better, position to give  an opinion on the high-grade mines  of the district.

It has always been accepted among certain classes that  tnalt or rye was a preventive as  .well as a cure for nearly all the  bailments of'man. If rye at 10c.  ,..*_t quart would cure coughs, coldl,  .'sprains, black eyes, hornet stings,  .horse colic, and, if taken regularly, would prevent all these,  it naturally dawned on the bu-  cpliid'! iittiiid that rye takeiti in  sufficient quantities* would be a  preventive agiinst hydrophobia.  xWhether from this or some other  y e_tWfee . hydrophobia disappeared.;  As.the. country opened up. a.new  style of parson invaded the territory. He was unqualifiedly opposed to the popular remedy and  the purple nose., Soon he had  numerons followers, and the  whole country became divided  into two parties���Purple Noses  and Anti-Purple Noses, both  with bad faults in their mental  formation. About every ten  years the craze strikes Ontario.  In the eaily seventies, the Dun-  ! kin act; it was a failure. In the  early eighties, the Scott act; it  also was a failure. In the early  nineties times were so bad that  it kept the people rustling to  make both ends meet, so had no  time to devote to the taverns.  Now they have a municipal local  option law, which is beinp submitted in many places, and both  parties are more insane than at  any previous period since a  farmer's dog bit an immigront���  ieither English, Irish or Scotch���  and became "mad." It is doubtful if the original malady was as  dangerous as that now prevalent  in Ontario. Much can be said  against and little, in favor, of  the average country, tavern.in$h���  East, but as long as tue Gooder-"  hams, Joe Seagram and Hiram  "Walker manufacture booze it will  be sold and drunk. If the temperance people are sincere and  wish to do away with booze  they should stop its manef acture.  .A solution of borax in water may be  mixed with linseed oil and used for  che&p printing-.    Painters also use a  nnflnr.  solution of borax as a solvent for shel-  laa. Borate of manganese has been  utilized as a drier for paints, oils, and  varnishes. Borax is extensiyely used  in tanning where wools and furs are  treated,,ts it cleanses, softens, and  prevents ;t.he hair from falling out. In  the hous.hold,'it is used to drive certain insects away, its presence being  specially abnoxious to cockroaches  and.aiits... Borax is very extensively  used in preserving foods, more particularly canned beef, etc.  The gold pen is a product of  America and New York. City manufactures the world's supply. In 18,40  th*. first gold pens were cut with scissors into shape from a then flat strip  of gold and a slit being cut into the  nib a bit of iridium was soldered to  each point separately and the points  then roanded up into shape with a  mallet .. The pens thus made were  iharketed at f rorri $5 $10 each. I.ater  machinery was invented and the process; much simplified. The gold pen  industry is not a large one aud if anything is decreasing. Probably $50,000  Worth'of gold and several thousand  dollars of iridinm is annually used in  the making of gold pens.  Pewter   is   a' general   term   for   a  number of alloys of which tin  forms  the predominating component.

People who tell you that there is no  money in raising chicks may have tried  to make money in the business by using  setting hens as hatchers, and they  might as well have tried to locate a  gold mine in the cabbage patch.

How would a " Greenwood Ten  Thousand Club" sound? With  the contemplated extensions in  mining and smelting, an increase  of eight thousand in the population of Greenwood and Anaconda before January 1, 1907, is  not an unreasonable estimate.  Nelson is to have another  daily paper, to be known as The  Vidette. Its promoter announces  that the first purchase towards  the plant���a gas engine���has  been made. At this season of  when Christian charity and good  will should prevail, perhaps it  would be well not to make further reference to the purchase.

It is about  time he fastened the escape valve  and turned the steame into the  the cvllinders.  The year coming to ' a close  has been the most successful in  the history of Boundary district.  In mining the prosperity has  been general, both in low and  high-grade miues. Business has  improved during the year. On  every hand are evidences of prosperity and business energy, but  the Board of Trade���wake it not!  Give the town a square deal.  When the hibernating season is  over not even the Board of Trade  can retard the progress of the city.  The Midway and Vernon difficulties have not yet been settled.  The men have not been paid their  wages and cannot sell their time-  checks, so have to tramp for another job. Whether the affairs  of the company will ever be settled or not is not known. It is  to be.hoped that some arrangement will be made to pay the indebtedness of the company, and  continue the work. The road  will open up one of the richest  mining districts in the province  and give the farmers of the Okanagan a market for their produce  in the mining- camps of the West  Fork and-Boundary.   .    .   '   ,  . When buying goods from East-  ern^department-=storeSr-remember-  that the local merchants are  investing their profits right here.  The profits of local business men  are kept in circulation here  and benefit every person in the  community. Every dollar sent'  to the''Eastern store means a loss  to the currency circulation of  the community of from 10 to 25  cents���the profit the local merchant would make on the transaction. Your gain by sending East  will probably average 5 per cent  Dees it pay to take this money  out of circulation where you are  earning a living for an individual  gain of 5 per cent. From the  Boundary district nearly a million dollars is annually sent out  to build up the East. The profits  from this amount, if spent at  home, would be invested in mining, building aud other improvements in the district. It is a  short-sighted policy to buy from  Eastern department stores, the  only returns you receive are a  few cents saved and a catalogue.  The Times wishes a Merry  Christmas to all its readers,  especially to those who are in  arrears, as a little extra Christian goodwill should be extended  to the man who is unable, in this  Western country of g*ocd wages  and prosperity7 to pay his subscription to the paper. If tradition and history are to be relied  upon, it is now nineteen hundred  years since -the wise men of the  East were guided to the manger  in Judea. Since that time men  have preached and men have  practiced the teachings of the  Carpenter of Nazareth. At times  these truths were brought home  to the erring ones by the sword,,  the stake, the. thumbscrew, and  various other methods now happily not in vogue. Civilization  has advanced, and we of this  continent believe we are as near'  Christian perfection as is possible  of attainment. True, we still  become enthusiastic over hundreds of thousands of men engaged iu slaughtering each other;  we take just a little more interest  in the man who makes millions  in a stock gamble on Wall Street  than the fellow in our midst who  on a small salary keeps a family  aud pays one hundred cents on  the dollar; we do not give quite  the best pew in our church to the  poorly dressed laborer; we would  much prefer to introduce in oxir  homes the rake with his thousands than the clean mechanic  with his hundreds;-, we have, to  a considerable extent, in the past  fifty years eliminated from the  home that noisy,romping, vulgar,  half dozen savages, and replaced  them with the more genteel kitten, poodle, calling cards and occasional pink tea; we still hire  men and women to explain the  the beauties of the New Testa-  hient7alth6ugh~liinety"per~"centr  can read and write ; we devote  more time to forcing our neighbors to observe the seventh day  than we do the worship of the  author of the day; we smile on  the man with thousands and worship the millionaire ; we are following the teachings of the Bible  with modern, practical amendments, and are doing our level  best to capture the dollars of our  neighbors. We' believe in Christianity, so long as it doesn't interfere with modern business  methods. We are not the stuff  that martyrs are made "of, but we  would take desperate chances for  a million dollars.

INGRAM KILLED  A Number of Persons Seriously Injured.  At 2 o'cloc.: Saturday afternoon a  ton of gelignite in the thawing house"  of the Center Star mine, Rossland, exploded, killing John S. Ingram and  injuring scores of pepple. Ingram was  in charge of the powder and his death  removed the.only possible source of information as to the cause"of the explosion. His body was recovered from  the debris badly mangled. Lockhart,  assistant diamond drill operator, who  was at |work under the, Centhr Star  offices, was badly cut about the head  and legs, but will recover.���";. Several  members of the office staff and'men in  the compressor building were hurt by  flying glass ot by being thrown violently against the machinery.. Buildings in the immediate vicinity were  twisted out of shape and the windows  all broken.  The big War Eagle boarding house  was oadly damag-ed, some of the inmates being slightly injured. In the  city the shock of the explosion caused  much consternation aiid did a large  amount of damage. Nearly all the  plate glass windows on Columbia avenue were smashed, many people receiving cuts from the fragments. The  merchants had their Christmas goods  displayed, much destruction being  wrought among these. The amount  of glass destroyed is enormous, and  heavy importations for repairs will be  necessary.  A look over, the situation reveals  that the accident could have resulted  in: much more disastrous consequences,  says the Rossland Miner, had the  powder in the Center. Star magazine  proper exploded. This is a building  about 30 feet long and 16 feet wide and  is located a considerable distance east  of the thawing house and the preparing  room, and a little lower down the hill.  Tho magazine contained a much larger  quantity of powder than the thawing  house,' as the latter had only sufficient  powder for a day's use, the quautity  needed being brought from the magazine each day. The force of the explosion went over the magazine, and  a large number of rocks fell on its roof  but the powder that it contained did  not go off. The concussion agsinst  the walls of the building must have  been considerable, but it is thoaght its  escape from destruction was due to the  fact that the powder stored in it was  frozen, and, thereforeVin a condition  which is least amenable to exploding.  Had the powder in this magazine ex  ploded the damage inflicted and the  number of lives lost would have been  appalling. Considering everything,  it~seeuis~"provid(_fiUar"that_the-��loss"of  life was so small.  The injured were:  E. M. Brown, badly cut about the  head.  Mrs. E. M. Purcell, badly cut.

This goes to show that  there  are still  enough for a quorum.���Toronto Globe  The New York court of appeals ha  decided that if a passenger cannot find  a seat in a car for which he has bought  a ticket he has a right to go into a  drawing room car and take a seat until  one is provided for him in the ordinary  passenger car, and also that if seats are  not to be had because they are occupied by parcels he is not bound to ask  the owners to remove them. If this is  not the law iu [Canada it should be.���  Toronto Globe.  Under the heading " This Dato  Thirty Years Ago," the Montreal  Daily Star is reproducing extracts  from its files. One which appeared  the other day is extremely interesting  as reflecting the knowledge which the  people of the East had of the Western  country. Speaking ef the loss of the  Pacific, one. of the memorable disasters  of this coast, the item in question has  it: " She was on her way south from  Manitoba, and at night struck a sunken  rock and foundered immediately."  Out in Seattle they are looking forward to the time when Seattle will be  a greater center of commerce and.  population than either London or New  York. The census figures show that  for every new inhabitant Seattle  secured in ten years ending with the  census year, 1900, London secured 48,  or in other words that London is growing 48 times as fast as Seattle. Iu addition, London has the mere trifle of���  6,500,000 .of a start on. the Pacific coast  town. It is well when one develops  ambitions to develop reasonable oues.-  Montreal Gazette.  One of the vexed questions of the  West is fixing a proper '.valuation on  mining property for the purpose of  taxation, says the Mining and Scientific Press. Most of the states have  no laws defining.how a mine shall be  valued. If the valuation be on the  improvements, this can usually be arrived at as fai as its cost is concerned;  but the equipment of a mine deteriorates rapidly���usually figured at 10 per  cent, annually; but, in the event of the  miue becoming exhausted, the plant is  of small value unless it can be used at  once in the operation of another property. If the valuation be fixed by the  output, this is manifestly unfair, as  the output may cease. Nor is an arbi  trary valuation on the entire property  more just, safe or satisfactory. The  assessment is usually adjusted through  conference of the mine officials and  the state and county officers at a figure  mutually agreeable to all concerned.  It is said that Bibles are so scarce in  the west that in one court they, swore  witnesses for a long time on a copy of  " Gulliver's Travels." It would be in -  teresting to know how this affected  the veracity of the witnesses. The  system of swearing a witness on any  "bob k^n'cohimdnyuse^for^thatpurpose,-  is not to be commended,  for sanitary  reasons, very strongly, and, unless it  m.ikes greatly for truth to compell all  witnesses to kiss the much-beslobbered cover.of a copy of the Bible,  they might well be spared the disgusting ceremony.' The number of people  who can be terrorized in this way must  be very few by now, and they might  surely be as effectively frightened by  making them hold the volume in their  hands while being sworn. The law  against perjury'is the chief terror to  liars in the witness box.���Montreal  Star.  ���***K^**'��***i'**.t**!*>*.,*.**i'w.M-**^  I  IDWAY  y  y  y  y  y  y  y  T  V  J  y  y  y  y  y  y  X  | FARE $100.

Hunter, principal of the  Kaslo high school, leaves tomorrow  for his home, iu Greenwood, and his  many Kaslo friends will regret his departure. Mr. Hunter has taught Mie  high school classes here for the past  eighteen months and it can truthfully  be said that the pupils of Kaslo never  had a better, more thorough or painstaking teacher. .His. departure is  caused through no fault of his own,  but is solely owing to tlie fact that he  is not the holder of an academic  teacher's certificate which would entitle him to become principal of a high  school. This, unfortunately, necessitated his resigning, and thus losing  the city of Kasle the services of a very  efficient schoolmaster. A strong effort  was made by both the school board  and the citizens of Kaslo to have Mr.  Hunter retained as principal of the  high school, but after a long corres-  pondedce with the superintendent of  education it was found that nothing  could be done in the matter. There  was no question about his ability to  teach pupils of the high school, but a  clause in the school act shut him out in  ao fer as it stated that only teachers  with academic certificates are eligible  to teach in high schools ���Koofenaian.  What ails Mr. Hawthornthwaite? Is  he running amuck against capital, or  is he only acting a part ? Prior to embracing Socialism tie was regarded as  a   thinking,   able   and   conscientious  member, very set in his way's, but by  no   means   an   extremist.    He   lost a  good situation  because  he  would  not  vote   for   a   measure    his    employers  wished   him   to    support.       Perhaps  that  soured  him against portly capitalists   and   merchants   and   bloated  aristocrats,   whose   blood   he   is   now  anxious  to shed,    But  all  merchants  are not portly, nor are  all  aristocrats  bloated.   What will he  do with   the  lean kine ?   It is difficult to regard Mr.  Hawthornthwaite    seriously.     When  the house meets in January he will be  found  helping  Mr.  McBride to retain  ofiice, and  the   blunderbus  which   he  shouldered   so   vailantly   on   Sunday  night will be put in the rack  until the  next   recess.    To   read   the   Socialist  leader's speaches one ^would imagine  him  a man  who goes   about with   a  cocked revolver in  each hand  and a  bowte-knife   between  his teeth.    But  meet him and talk with  him ahd he  will be found as pleasant and  agreeable a man as you would wish to meet.
