In  the Cowichan Leader  of Saturday  last appears some mining news  of the Mount Sicker district that is  of interest to some of our Ladysmith  readers,  as" quite, a number  of people  livim*  here have interests  in      that  ��������� t-  section.    The report says  in  part:  The Tyco Conipany has had another  very  successful year.  Nearly ,30,-  000  tons of ore have been shipped to  the Tyee Company's smelter at Ladysmith,   and  have  produced  considerably over three million pounds of copper,  one hundred thousand  ounces  of  silver and six thousand ounces      of  gold.    The  large reserve  funfl     has  been greatly  added lo and  thc Tyee  Company "is   in an exceedingly   strong  position,  with  large reserves  of ore  standing in the mine and a handsome-  credit balance    at the bank.    Heavy  development works have been carried  on continuously  dm ing  the year. The  main shaft has  been carried  down tc  a depth  of  1 ',050 feet from   thc actual surface of ihe ground, which makes  it by) far the deepest shaft on  Vancou  ver    Island,  and     cross-cutting    and  drifting will soon be commenced frorr  this  deep  level.  A great deal oi development wor'  has a'so been done, on the X L.  claim, which is a portion of 'the  Tyee Company's property.0 A two  compartment shaft has been sunk to  a depth of 350 feet. At the 150 foot  level a drift was carried east for  1,000., feet and good lode matter am'  some copper ore was encountered  Drifts east are now being run simul  taneously from ��������� the two lower levels  sotas to K thoroughly explore the  ground where the good indications  have been met with in the lower levels. .  In   speaking  of  the  Vancouver Island  Mining  and  Development  Company,   the  Leader says:    During . thc  present  year  this company  has don  a great deal .of development  work on  Mount  S'cker,   At the Westholme the  shaft" was carried to a depth  of 500  feet,   and   1,200J feet, of.cross-cutting  was done at  this level.   This makes  2,700   feet'of development  work that,  has-bciii. /done on this claim alone  Some,, work      was'iilso done  on       a  proniis.ii; .surface showing on       the  Estcllc' claim., On Ml.

An  hour  or two after he arrived hcu'hc  received     the news that  his    frisnJ  had  passed  away.

Although the rebellion may flare up  immediately     elsewhere     and      although there is already an-indication  of another .iphcaval  at Odessa, if. thc  attempt    at armed rebell.on at Moscow   should be crushed, ihe leaders of  the     reds  will  receive  a blow from  which  they cannot quickly recover.

Among   the developments   here     toJ  day  the most important  was .    the  capture of the leaders  of Uie "Fighting   Lions,"      which,   it   is believed,  ends the danger of an attempt at an  armed   uprising  in   St.      Petersburg.  This capture, it is understood, places  in  thc hands of the go1, eminent complete information regarding the revolution  and .-.hows  places where arms  are  concealed  as well  as pointing out  weak spots in the army.

This     morning    J.    W.  Donaldson  came as  near death  as  a man  could  and' escape,  says  a Vancouver     despatch.   But for thc fact that    some  Japanese were of the   notion to   go  out fishing about three o'clock,   his  life would have been lost.   The Japs  wcreputtiug out   from  the south end  of thc Great Northern railway -bridge  when    they saw  Donaldson in     thc  water.     They     pulled  him  into  the  boat and notified the police.   The po!  lice had him removed to the general  hospital  with all  possible speed.  On  arrival  there it was found that    his  head was badly battered and that by  a fall or a twist his spinal cord had  been so jarred that he had iost power  of his   nether   limbs.     He savs       be  does-, not Know who  bit him or  who  tbicw him off the bridge,  but be  alleges  that some 513 that he had ,   in  his pocket was abstracted by his    assailants, who4 having got what they  wanted,  mercilessly  threw him   into  the  water.    Although  he   was     conscious and was  able to give a coherent  story,  Mr. Donaldson   was       so  badly injured that his life is fcispair-  ed of.    Dr.  Weld,  who has charge ol  the case,  says  that there  is no  sign  that  the man  had  been indulging    in  intoxicants.    He says also that     the  victim's1 statement  is  that hc    must  have been  in the water two      hours.  How foe kept above the surface with  bis legs paralyzed  on  account of the  spinal   injury   the  doctor  cannot    explain.  B. C.

'He brought with him specimens  of the     large    apples .and,   potatoes  which are ra'eed   in Vut far-off country, and  the members of the   board  could    scarcely     lielieve    their  eyes  when they took them  in their hands  and examined them.

In exhibiting his     display of fruit iand vegetables, he said,  tlie farmers  of  Union county   could  '-have  similar   results    if they  would  ' plant  right and clear  their orchards  j of all old  trees.

That a self nropcl-  !ed airship will facilitate the cxplora  tion of hitherto inaccessible places  and  win enlarge     tne possibilities of  tion, but also ol making a start and  landing without mishap. Such performances show that substantial improvements are being made in the  handling, of aeroplanes, even if none  has ������������������en effected in their design. To  make a voyage lusting for two or  three hours would require a larger  supply of fuel than the Wright Bros,  have" yet found it practicable to carry. -Otherwise the construction of an  airship for such work would apparently be a simple matter.

As between the type of (lying machine which relies for support on a  gas bag and one wh'icn secures boiiy-  Aiicy only from progressive motion,  vlr. Manly expresses a decided prei-  erence for the, latter. For such a  choice there is still much cxclsc.  San.los-Dumont and lus followers f-avo  performed the most sensational aeronautic feats up to the present time;  but the day for final judgment, has  not arrived. Among the advocates  ;f tbe aeroplane have, been a score . f  le\ el-headed scientific men,  Lord  Kel-  in and Sir Hiram Maxim among  .hem.

According to Mr. Carnegie." there  is nothing' so valuable as- to lie born  in poverty and .to be compelled to  go forth and battle for yourself."  ���������Many will applaud the saying. But  is it true?  The poor have no  monopoly of virtue or  of intelligence.    Extreme poverty heseiges  the one and dulls   11)3  other.       It  is easy  to say  that   the  \apid  and vicious  young man , of fortune would have been a decent fellow  if born to poverty,  but it is hard    to  pro\e.    With   his  temperament       he  might have been a burden upon society.  The rjr.n of unusual talent or genius,  if born in  poverty, does sometimes  escape frbm his  disadvantages  to  do great  work.    But  the exceptional  man of  inherited wealth also      conn's      environiment and  attacks  quel's  ���������^ ft* ������������������K t*t*i tffi *?���������  rg, i.j,j 14.1 ij.1 1^1 jf*.

Zoologists   will   tell    Mr.  Carnegie that  it is not struggle that  develops  races   and  species,   but  the  favoring     cm ironment  that permits  them   to stiuggle  successfully.    Were  ili otherwise   the  Eskimos   would   he  the "Supermen."  in     the case of the successful self-  made,      man   golden   years   arc   lost.  What good did   it do him that Sehlie-  nn.nn must     make his fortune before  .spending  it  m uncovering the   buried  cities of     Greece?  Or  Cecil   Rhodes  that he must  use his best years     in  ma1.ing money  and die at the threshold of his political plans? -^.Cr Carnegie himself that  he was not  free to,  consider     piphlems  de.arer to     him  than money making until his  active'  ycats had passed?  Suppose Keats had   been born       in  the  wealth  of Byion,   might be    not  with   education   and   t-raU'l   and   out- ���������  door life have reached a sane old &go  instead      of dying cf the foul  air  of  his'poor lodging and his stuffy chemist's shop? \Mtght  he not have,     enriched English   letters .witli poems.beyond price,      and have left his own  fame far more  secure?  These arc questions easy to ask.V  impossible to answer. .To burst-,  through the fcpnds ,of extreme poverty  and rise to eminent usefulness is creditable. 'To make of wealth a means  of culture -and-of service rather than  of weak self-indulgence-is also-'crod'tri.  able. It is character, . not condition,  that counts.
