Monday's World con.  tains an article which., states that  two prospectors dropped on to the-  Alowgli in tbe vicinity of Home lake  Heiv is tho  World's story:  Thc Movvgli, of Vancouver Tsland,  has boon seen again'. A gentleman  who cumo over from thc inland today, and who Is stopping at thc Lc-  laud, says that four days ago two  prospectors dropped right 0n the wild.  man on the shores of Home Lake,  Alberni district. Horne Lake ia  what most people .would call marshy .or    rushy pond.  . '  The wild man was clothed in'sun-  jbiae and a smile except that his  body was covered with a longish ,  growth of hair of a brownish color-,  much like the salmon berry-eating  bears that infest that region. The  wild man ran as .sooin as the pros- ,  pectors came within range of vision.  Tbe prospectors found the wickie-  up in which he had been sheltering,  and also many truces /or" where he  had been, gathering roots of the reeds  along  the lake bank   for   substenan-  ce.  The   World's   informant  says     that'  once     more    it   has been  absolutely  proven' that  the wild nian is  nd figment of tho. imagination.  ������������������ ��������� ���������        ���������  As    a result    of    the recent long-  drawn out proceedings  in connection  with the - seizure and subsequent    release   of. Mr.   J.  S. Emerson-s   logs,  the    provincial       government     will  have cost's to pay which' will amount  to   at  least   ������10,000.  ..Mr.   Emerson  defeated     the    government   in    every  court and. the   government has been  ordered   to pay all costs of the, pro- ���������  ccedings   before   Mr.   Justice    Morrison   oa   Friday   last.     Thc   cost     ol  'those proceedings up to  and   including  the  proceedings  alone,    to '   Mr.  Emerson,   were  84:75,   which  included  The cost  of    the tug      which  Sheriff  Hall used twice   to get the logs from  North  Vancouver.     In   addition     to  j.his the   costs incidental   to the seiz  ure,  towing   caring for   and  '   other  incidental  expenses  will be  at   least  S5,000.    Tho government also has to  pay,for all logs   which were lost and  personal    damages   to Mr.   Emerson  Thp $4.70  costs  is a mere bagatelle  compared  ?o   tbe  costs    of  the  seizure. . It  can thus he seen, that with  tho .fees     of counsel  on both   sidos  and other minor expenses the government bill -will exceed $10,000.   o���������-���������-������������������ 4F  Sunlight Soap Is better than other soaps, but  s best when use.lin the' Sunlight way.

HELD,IN SLAVERY-  IN LU'M'BKU CAMPS"  WiiinipBg, Aug. 1.���������'lhc Evening  Herald of Dublin has a story of  slavery' from the lumber camps of  1'iorida, where Wisconsin and -Michi-  yan. capitalists have larrge interests,  that reminds the reader of tbe days  hofore the war. " The Herald says -  The story the,wires lluing today from.  Pansacola, Ela., about peonage in a,  laugio lumibcr camp, sounds like an  echo of the other days. It seems in  credible tliat in this age, even under  the great jrrovocation of lattor t-carci-  ty, men, and white .men at that,  should jje caught and hold in practical slavery iir this "land of the  free.'*  But that is exactly what'the Jade-  son Luin<bcr company of LocMiart-,  Ala., is charged with, ' The story  goes that a party of Gorman ilrvmi-  grants, not long ago, arrived, "es-  capctl from the -"amp and made \hcir"  way to the,German vice consul 'at  Pansacola, wherc-Lliey loid him a  t-ale of ill-trcj(atrnent and cruelty tiiati  resulted in prompt action.  They reported that about 100 immigrants, mostly Gennans, are held  in the Lumber camps of the Jackson  Lumber company at Lockbart, virtually as slaves. They &aid "that  they were brought s,oiitJi last February under representations that they  were to receive for their labors VA  and J5 per day. -All they goL Was  il per day and mighty poor treat-  men I, thrown in. It is alleged that  tliey were compelled, to eat a flier tho  Anienoun biases, ajni if there happen  ed, to i,c anything* -Ml alter ulie  bosses had lmished the laborers had  a meal; rr the bosses at'C it all Uie  men went hungry. Tliey were not  allowed to leave the camp, and if  they littiomptjod to escape they, were  caught tuvd severely beaten, fj he  bosses went armed in the,'woods, and  i, tlio men did not work actively enough they were stripped and held  over a log by two -men while a  X'Jiird laid  on a strap or club.  Of eouise only one side has jet ljcen-  lieard. Maylbe when the lumber company tells its story it will loolcdh-  ierenlly. Bui ,il there is any truth  111 the tale told by Uie men, rl will  ibe found out, for Unrted Stale*; marshals, turned with warrants for the  arrest of the comprun/'to ollncials,  have gone to th������ scene ol the allifg.-.  outiage. It will go haul with them  U the story oi tile men proves to |;e  tuie, and it should, 'linis |is-Uie, Culled Sulci and lhe Iwenuelh cu-n-  lury, not������Spam 01 the feudal ,igc,  and such ouLrages cannot be Weral-  od. j\ot alone for Lhc pioUreluon of  Uie rneii, .but also for the protection ol the compaii) 'a good /lame,  should- such practices be severely  punished.  It rs stated that Uic Jackson lumber comiany is one of lhe largest  lnm'bering concerns in Ujc south and  that is rs composed principally ot  Michigan ami Wisconsin capitalists.  Now Michigan ami Wisconsin 1* ople  have been lumbering up this way lor  a numibet of years, and while thoy  have olren becn o\'asi**ei'atetl by tbe  scarcity and coquet tushness of the  lumberjacks, they have never bad to  descend to such meuhods a������ those reported in thc south,  "MA1U"**IAY WHILE " "'  ; THE SUN SHINES'."  There is a lesson in the work of  tihe* thrifty farmer. 'lie knows that  the bright suns-bine may last but a  day aud he prepares for the showers  which are so liaJble to follow.
