This property, Which sonic years ago .was worked both as a unnurt/, and placer proposition, is considered by  Mr. Richards to be one of the  most promising he has had occasion  to look over in recent years.

I newt  scaioely explain to youf that the sal  raon means everything to the B-^bfne.  It means   more to them than bread  and  meat  do to us.     Dried   salmon  is  the staple  of Indian  life in - the  countiy, as it is the real staple   of  while life also in that country at th*  present time.     In the letter which  I  leceived fiom the chiefs, it was stated   that    officers    of  the government  had appealed in  the country slating  to the Babines that they must    discontinue at onco the use of tlie.weiu  Mi f's'ung.    When I received this com  munioation   I    paid   no   attention to  it,, being   peisuaded  that  the  people  weie  unnccessaiily, alarmed.      Some  time ajgo I  leceived a second  letter  liom  the duels,   repeating the  statements     contained    in    the    fonmer.  Again I  passed the matter by.

I  vvioto then  to a  good friend of mine  in     Biitish    Columbia,   and I  found  that  the    statements of  the Indians  wimp only too tiuc.  "I have today mailed communications to all the newspapers of British Columbia, calling attention- to  the gieat iniiistice being done to the  Indians, asking for redress and stating, the facts as 1 am stating them  to you. . 1 also mailed a copy of  the letter to the commissioner of Indian affairs in Ottawa.  "The great' injustice of the.situation consists in this fact that the  Canadian, governni-enl has no treaty  .with these people. What right can  the government have to interfere  with the rights which the original  inhabitants of the country have enjoyed from the beginning of time ?  ff the Canadian people desire-to interfere in the domestic affairs of tho  Babines, let them approach them  through representatives in the regular way and -make the treaty with  them. ���������  "It would he exceedingly costly to  send an armed force to the Babino  ���������and Currier Indians and what is  much more important, the I-ndia-nSj  arc in the rig'hl in the mlatler.

Being asked whether the new railways would alejct. the part, of tho  province id en titled, Father Moriee at  once stated that the C.N.It. would  pass through the centre of tile district    and    that    the  C.P.R.   would  WILL RACE  J.CR8SS TH[  ATLANTIC  New Yoik, Sept. 11.���������Slartnifi tomorrow four of the finest cruisers in  the Aiueri.au niiv.^, tho West Virginia, Colorado, I'c-nnsyh ania and  Maryland,  will  rare   niutv    Mum     ;',-  000 ui lies across the'At l-.int ic in :i  journey   io   (he  Philippines. /  The four warships   arc alike iiv  (le  sig'ii   and  engines    but   they  hnne   .a  different      type   of   boilers, N and     lor  that' reason   tho  outcome  of  (ho trip  to   Gibraltar,   which   is     to   bo     the  first stoj), will be watched wilh|gicnl  interest by naval authorities.

Mr. Roach's 2tith birth-  bul, today a. saloon passenger bound  day happened this week and as a  present he received a cable from a  linn of Plymioutii solicjitors, advising him that he was one of three  heirs to wealth made -by his father  in South Africa. Roach was not in  a fi'iinmeiul position to make the tripV  to the Old Country, and promptly  notified the-solicitors, to that effect;  by return cable came a draft for  JL* 100, and he lias guven up delivering'  'goods and   left for  England.

As he was about  to cross the street he noticed a kind-*  ly, motherly looking woman approaching. Assuming a most wo-be-  gone, destitute expression, he look  his stand on the curb, and tentative  ly proffered his greasy palm. He was  not disappointed. She produced a  ha'penny, and said:  "Now, I want you to understand  that L-am giving you this not because I think you may be starving,  or from any foolish notions of charity, but because it gives me pleasure to do so."

The steel plant at Kirkland, the  establishment of which depends on  tho attitude of tbe voters regarding the ������500,000 canal bond issue,  will require about 1,00 tons of coko  pjer day for the production of 500  toa(s daily of pig' iron.

Our regulation woman who lives tcL  the age of 105 or even' 117 has put  iu the larger vpai\t of her last century in paying attention, to a clay  pipe and the kind of tobacco they  giow in the hills. Sometimes too,  she has been in the habit of taking  an occasional nip a,t something fiom  a -bottle, but this, -however, is not  necessary. In the case of a man,  wo sort of expect it, though.  If many more cases of this kind  show up it will shatter the notion  that the good die young and incidentally will deprive our prospective  centenarians of lots of fun.   o   /'Which do you think is the most  valuable of our senses?"

The  reasoning, which seems to -be umite conclusive, is -that    the .smoke,  passing  lb lough the .nioulli nnd nose, effectually disposes   of the nnicrobes    con-  j st.inlly.    deposited  there,   and     thus  supplies thc needful ounce, .of proven-  i tion for many  diseases.'    While   one  ! pail of formaldehyde in  10.000 parls  of  water is sufficient to  destroy all  bacterial  life,  thc'amount of  poison  found in tobacco'   smoko is so  infinitesimal that it has  no injurious effect upon the human system. ���������  Want "Ads"  WANTED ���������'A good; smart hoy to  , learn the hardware business.
