Thc Athelstan is now shipping
about 75 tons daily, the snow making tl.e hauling much easier for tbe

SPEECH FROM THE THRONE
Manager Pcniherton of thc Mon

is now on thc way from Montreal,
and has sent word to continue tbe
two furnaces at full blast till spring,
when more furnaces will be added
to the equipment.

\V. W. Carter, who is developing
the Bank of England, adjoining the
Rawhide, is understood to have
made arrangements witli the Greenwood smelter for test treatments
from tbat property, and a shipment
of ore is now being gotten ready.
After many delays in getting thc
crown   grant straightened out, it iB
now  stated   that thc Nellie Cotton
and Mystic claims, located  almost
a Ijoining the Granby mines on thc
Booth, have been sold to a syndicate
of Chicago capitalists, the terms of
tho transfer not having been given
out.   It is understood that develop
ment work will  be stated   in   the
spring.

not only because the two furnaces
are running steadily, and giving tbe
most satisfactory results under the
superintendency of J. E. McAllister,
who has been in charge since Paul
JohiiBon left, but because of tbe improvements being made to thc plant
itself. The slag hauling locomotive
recently installed is busy all the
time, and is serving its purpose well.
Work   is   well   under way on the
foundations for the new copper converter building, in which the 50 per
cent matte will be made into marketable copper bullion, 98 or 99 per
.jnt'fine. Here will be located the
stand of two converters, which arc
expected to be in operation some
time late in tbe winter or in the
spring. The dust chamber is already nearly completed, and thc C.
P. R. graders are preparing the right
of way for the spur to thc converter
building proper.

Harold Kingsmitb, writing fron
Hydenburgh, Transvaal, to the Col-
ville (Wash.) Reveille, gives the following   description  of the minera
resc rces  of South   Africa:   "The
mines of  the country are simply
marvelous, as no other word applies
to them.   The series of n e's of th-
Witwaters rand, of which Johannesburg  is   the   cenler, are now being
profitably worked over a distance of
40 miles, and  recent developments
on tbe eastern end are   reasonably
expected to augment the length   of
thc   reef by another ten or twenty
miles.    Tbe average of ore along (h
whole reef is about 810.35 per ton, ol
which the total cost of mining, milling, management, etc., absorb a'xmt
$6.50 per ton.   The ore bodie-  arc
not wide, thirty inches to three feel
probably   being  a  good    average,
the secret of the value of the   mines
being the almost perfect continuance
of the ore shoots and   the   maintenance of the average values..  Personally, I ihink thc working  costs
are excessive, but this is an expensive  country  anyway.   The rapid
development of the  country   since
the war has absorbed a vast quantity
of thc  native lahor that used to be
available   foi   the   mini's in other
channels, and now   the   mines  iire
confronted with a  very  inadequate
BUpply of native   labor.    You   will
undrsumd   that  the   mines   have
been worked by a mixed supply  of
Kaffirs and whites, in the   ratio  ol
10 of the former to 1 of the   latter,
the   Kaffirs doing the rough work.
Johannesburg is at present stagnant
owing  to  this  difficulty, and   the
mine owners are making   a   determined   endeavor to import Chinese
to  augment  the supply.   To  my
mind tbe only  practicable solution
of thc difficulty lies in the employment   of   white miners; but before
this  can   be  done  some    radical
changes and economics must be effected   in   the cost of living.   The
employment of whites   will eventually reduce the cost of mining,  and
will   make Johannesburg tbe most
prosperous place in the world. The
chief objection (by tbe capitalists),
though uinncntioncd and  relegated
to the rear, is that the white miner
being so numerically   strong, wouh
Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the
Legislative Assembly:
I have much pleasure in  welcoming   you   to  the first session of the
tenth parliament of British  Columbia.   Our financial affairs demand
most urgent consideration  on  your
part, and I appeal,   with   hope,   to
your patriotism and to your love for
tor province, whose future destinies
under providence are in your hands.
There is no  reason why British Columbia,   with   its  great natural resources, should not occupy   in the
Dominion   of  Canada a position of
which we may all be  justly   proud.
You have, therefore, been convened
thus early in order that my  finance
minister   may  be enabled to make
such fiscal arrangements as may be
necessary.   Having in view the immediate requirements, of tbe country
but the unfavorable conditions   for
obtaining a loan from  the  London
market, you will be asked to authoi-
ize the issuance of treasury warrants
extending   over  a short period  of
years, and repayable in annual  instalments.    A considerable  increase
in revenue eni h year v il, in , onse
quence, be necessary, not   only   to
meet ordinary  expenditure, but to
provide for the redemption  of wa -
rants. The legislation proposed will,
therefore, include a new Assessment
Act, and amendments to  tbe   Land
Act, tbe  Railway Assessment  Ac',
and tbe School Act. As a part of the
plan of financial reconstruction, substantial economies in tbe  civil service have already been effected, as
well as material  reductions   iu   the
expenditure on public works. These
will be continued, consistent with a
due regard to tbe  requirements   of
the province.
My government has ale dy taken
up the proposed readjustment of the
financial relations between the province and thc Dominion, as also the
question of the control of thc fisheries, and tbe regulation of alien
immigration. These subjects will be
persistently pressed to a settlement
satisfactory to the province.
As a result of a recent decision in
the Alaskan boundary enquiry, a
strong feeling exists in favor of an
all-Canadian route to tbe Yukon
anil northern British Columbia, aud
my government will co-operate in
any reasonable efforts which may be
made to bring about the construction of such ' railway.
I am pleased to note the probability of the construction at an early
date,'not only oi another Canadian
transcontinental system having its
terminus at the Pacific ocean, but
also other important lines within
our province.
You will be pleased to know that
the British Columbia Immigration
Act, passed last session, has been
successful in excluding undesirable
immigrants.
I now leave you to your deliberations, trusting that they may receive I
tho   divine   blessing and  result in
much benefit to tbe province.
He Falls From a Load of Lumber, Breaking an Arm and
Receiving  Other Bruises—Removed   to
This City.
Joseph Wiseman, of the city, met
with a painful and serious accident
yesterday afternoon near Fisherman
which will lay him up for some
time. He left here yesterday with
a load of lumber for the Minnie
mine, and when at Fisherman be
was going down a steep incline,
and as is usual in such cases, he applied the brake, holding the same
down with his foot. The brake,
which must have been a defective
one, gave way, precipitating Mr.
Wiseman to the ground. In the fall
his right arm was broken above the
elbow, and other severe bruises were
sustained, receiving an especially
painful   wound   on the right hip.
After regaining consciousness he
had to make his way to Niagara, a
distance of three-quarters of a mile,
which was a painful task in his condition, and he fainted several times on
the road. On his arrival there, Dr.
' Kingston was wired for, and he immediately went up and dressed the
wounds of the injured man. The
doctor had him removed to this
city, arriving here at midnight.' He
was taken io the residence of his son-
in-law, R. R. Gilpin, where, this
morning, he is reported to be doing
well. Mr. Wiseman is extremely
unfortunate, as it is only a short time
since he had both his legs broken in
| an accident.
Tbis is great winter weather. The
ranchers in this vicinity are plowing
and digging potatoes, and the ducks
and geese have returned from southern clinics, evidently preferring the
tbe British Columbia winter climate
to that found in lower latitudes. If
there is no change before next
Sunday, THE Sux man intends
to polish up his automobile, which
had been stored until s| r'.ng, an 1

pick a mess of wild strawberries.
N. McLellan, the enterprising
Hour and feed merchant, has shown
bis faith in Grand Forks by purchasing the Morrison block, on First
street, adjoining the postoffice. This
is one of the best business blocks in
the city, having been built three
years ago by W. J. Morrison. It
was at one time occupied by Rendell
& Co., dry goods merchants of Greenwood. This is the first important
real estate deal made here for some
time, but it is hoped the coming
year will see lots of them. Tbe indications are that 1904 will see a
real estate boom in Grand Forks.

TUESDAY,  DECEMBER 1, 1903
The speech from the throne, delivered by the lieutenant-governor
at the opening of the house last
Thursday, and printed in this issue
of The Sun, will well repay careful
study.
It is reported that Mr. Houston
did not. attend thc government caucus. It would he interestingto know
if he remained away of his own free
will, or whether he was politely requested to do so.
All trade unionists are not Socialists. At thc annual convention of
thc American Federation of Labor,
just closed at Boston, thc federation
placed itself on record as opposed to
Socialism by a vote or 2185 For and
11,282 against.
An order in council has been
passed by the Dominion government
permitting the entry into Canada free
of duty of orange mineral, dry white
and red leads made from lead produced in Canada. In the refining
process the substances mentioned are
extracted, and it is felt only proper
that Canadian products of this kind
should be allowed to come into tbe
country again free.
THE PcOPLE'S FORUM
Tn the Kilitnrnf The Keening Sun.
The political menu set before the
house of assembly includes a revision of the Railway Assessment Act
so thnt railways may in future be
assessed at $10,000 per mile instead
of the ridiculous figure of $8000, us
iu tbe past. The principle of increased taxation in that direction
will commend itself to the great majority of the people who have long
believed   that   those    Corporations
were escaping payment of their just
quota to tho provincial maintenance.
It was in keeping with this principle that the Liberals of Grand
Eoiks so strongly declared for a revision of the said act. Elsewhere
Liberals voiced thc same sentiment.
Hence the McBride government
may, in so far as it recognizes the
exigency of increased taxation of
railway--, 'c commended for its move
its move in the premises.
While dealing with the subject of
railway taxation the government
or the house may well be asked to
repeal that law which provides for
a total exomption from taxation of
railways and their assets situate
within municipalities, Incorporated
since Feb. 21, 1895. As tbe law referred to may lie unknown to most
of your readers, its quotation may
not be out of place. It is as follows:
"That no municipality incorporated
after Feb. 21, 1895, shall assess any
land occupied and claimed by a
railway company as tbe railroad
right of way, or occupied for railroad stations, engine houses, freight
sheds, railroad buildings, sidings,
or any of the personality, property
of the company, including rolling
stock or equipment, and thc same
shall not be subject to municipal
taxation."
Insomuch as railways as to their
assets within municipalities are not
Bubject to taxation hy the province,
it follows that a total exemption exists. Unless prevented from so doing by reason of Borne provision outside thc statutory law, it seems to
me, und I venture to say the rate
payers generally of Grand Forks
that this city ought to he in a position to receive from the railway.'
operating within its limits some
contribution in the way of taxes.
I would therefore suggest that thc
matter be looked into and steps
taken while the legislature is in session, and especially while it is considering a revision ofthe assessment
laws iu respect to railways, to have
tbe obnoxious municipal exemption
repealed.
No one is quarreling with any of
the railways in our city, and it cannot be argued that to tax then
upon an equitbable basis is unfair
Just as long, however, as these corporations can escape payment of
taxes they,.like individuals in that
r'spect, will endeivor to do si.
Furthermore, it is well that whatever move in the direction referred
to may be taken, the same ought to
be taken at once. Temporizing
with the subject may be used as a
reason against an inefrence wih
the law as it now is- L. P. 1''.

Imperial Weather.
SOMEBODY is about to publish a
vindication of the character of
English weather. It appears that
It has been moist unfairly misrepresented. What we stupidly call Us fickleness Is really nothing In the world
but a perfectly laudable effort to reproduce In our midst the Imperial nature of our climate, remarks "Outlook."
When It presents us with primroses In
November, that is to remind us of the
pleasant picnic weather they are having on the veldt; the same laudable
Intention accounts for June snowstorms. Nor do we have to wait for
complete reversals of the seasonB. A
week of Imperial weather—sometime!,
like a cheap trip, It is all crammed into
one day—runs somewTmt as follows:
Monday, fog (home produce); Tuesday,
cricketing weather fAustralia); Wednesday, skating (Canada); Thursday,
waterspouts (vari is ocean territories); Friday, steaming (West Coast);
Saturday, general Imperial representation; Sunday—but the British Sunday
his a climate of Us own.
Edison's Prophecy.
Mr. Edison'a latest theory Is that by
and by we shall he able to do without
sleep altogether, as by the more perfect processes of electric lighting it will
toe difTlcult to tell night from day, and
we shall forget when bedtime comes
round. The man of the future Is evidently going to live pretty rapidly. It
was only the other day that we were
told that square meals would be a
thing of the past In the good time
that's coming. Instead of laboriously
working your way through seven or
eight courses, all you'll have to do will
be to go to the nearest chemist and
■buy a few pills with the nourishment
of a city dinner concentrated Into each.
In the face of these condl ions one feels
tll"pos.'d to urge the races unborn to
stay where they are for their own
sakes.

How Nordica Stood Up for Duss.
Atlantic City society is excited over a
•nub administered by Mine. Nordicu and
Edouard de Keszke, who appeared there
the other day in concert. It occurred to
several leaders that it would be a nice
thing to entertain the dingers, The details were worked out hy Mrs. Wilfred
Law-ton Peel, and Frank VVeldon, at'iing
for Mrs. Peel, issued Invitations tu Mme,
Nordics and M. de lte.iz.ke. The singers
accepted, ami elaborate preparation*)
were made for the aII air. Society people
were on hand to meet the artists, but
they did not appear, or send excuse-).
When the guests realized the situation,
they were thoroughly disgusted and clui-
Elned. It appears that when Mme. Korea and M. de Keszke accepted the invitations they supposed that John S. Du.ig,
with whose band they are traveling, had
also been invited. When they learned
that Mr. Duss had not been invited, they
■•solved not to go.

PHOPKIK I OH
The Isle of the Lush Bananas.
A millionaire, and a beggar suffered
shipwreck and both were <.*nst upon
an uninhabited Island which abounded In -bananas. The millionaire,
wbose property -was all In railroads, did not lo-?e a c?nt by the
shipwreck, but the poor beggar saved
only the shirt on his b.iek—which, indeed, was the only flhlrt he had had
tor longer than he eoull remember.
When they found themselves on  the
shore the millionaire nodded affably to
theibeg-rar and said: "I don't remember
to have seen you before, but I suppose
you must have been on the steamer.
Second cabin?"
"No, stowaway.   It's cheaper."
"Ah, yes.   I hadn't 'bought of that.
Well, tills sh!pwi«ck \s something of a
Icveler,   and   we   miirht    as    well   ba
friendly and see how wo can help each
other until we are rescued.   What can
you do?"
"I?   Oh, I can beg."
"I'm afraid that in the absence of
Inhabitants that  Is a useless accomplishment,"   replied   the  millionaire.
"Well, what can you do, yourself?"
"I can buy," said the m.lHonalre,
"Umph!" said the beggar.
"A very Just rermrk," said the millionaire.1   "I see that we are on the
same footing and  the outlook Is discouraging."
"That Is Just where I fail to agree
with you," said the beggar, "For the
first time since I can remember I can
live without begging. See, the Island
Is full of bananas."
"But." said the oth^r, "bananas don't
agree with me."
"You should have bought a better digestion when your money had ■ purchasing power. SUM, if you don't ilka
fruit, there nre ftsh. I see them leaping In the cove there, and we can make
fire with your t-pectades for a burning-
glass."
"But fish almost poison me. I never
ea-t them."
"Well, you are difficult. But there Is
a small bird."
"I never eat them without the ac-
eompinlmciu of a cold botiie. Still, I
suppose I could go a small bird If you
caugat It and cooked it."
The twain spent months on the Island and tie bt.Tgur grew fat while
the millionaire became as thin as an
ascetic.
One day, while the millionaire
watched the beggar making a- meal ot
weak fifih and fried bananas he said: "I
would give all my millions (If I could
get at them) for your appetite."
"There have been times," said the
-beggar, "when I would have Jump d
at your offer, but as we seem out of
the track of steamers I won't even
consider it. And to tell the truth, I
don't believe that all your millions
would make these fish any more delicate to my palate nnr won!1 *>ev

Mark Twain on "Geiukmen."
Commenting:   on    Mrs.    Actor's    al-
|*gud    statement,    that   "without   a
codeg-e   education   no    mnn   can   be
a gentleman," M     . Twain says that
"perhaps  Mrs.   A lor,   when  &ne  uses
the   word  'gcntlemio,*  does  not   have
the same  meaning  In  view  that  we
rude people have."   lie thinks she probably means "a leader of cotillions; a
sp.uk   and   span    dandy,   who    knows
enough  to observe  the ordinary rules
of  p-'llteness   when   he  Iw  on  parade,
and who has a volet at home to tell
him what clothes me prober to wear."
Twain's   idea   of   a   gent I* man   is   "a
kh\lly. courteous, umVlflsh man, who
thfnks first not of himself, hut of his
fellow man;  nnt  one  of  those 'chap-
ple.i,' who are In reality the most sei-
fl.-h iwn on earth," and lie adds; "Taku
the men of prominence In the Unl.-d
States  to day  nnd   pick  out  the  true
gentleman.    I'll venture that nine out
of ten of them never had a high school
education, let alone a college education.   Why, the first pen Mem n I ever
knew waa an old California ini-ier, who
could hardly write his own name.   He
was a '-Iyer,  and  he and  his  partner
had struck It rich In  the early days.
The old man  had   neither chick  mir
child, and he had worked hard all his
life, and when he did g-t his money he
hardly knew what to do with It.   He
didn't try to Jump into society, or to
push his  way  with   the 'big  fellows'
there.   He continued to live with tha
people he had associated with all his
life, aud many an act of kmdn?ss was
done, many a wandering son and father saved, many a sorrowing woman'!
burden lightened nnd her life brightened  by  an   unknown   donor   whose
identity was only known to a few.   It
was different  with   his  partner.    He
had a wife and   two daughters with
social aspirations, and after a whole
lot of pushing and hauling and shoving they landed In .society.   The expense was too much of a drnin on the
husband's   purse,   nnd   he   speculated,
with the inevitable outcome.   He lost
his  entire  fortune   and   shot   himself.
Then It was the true gentlcmanlhiese
of  the old  mnn   showed  Itself.    Tl.e
widow and her daughters had no one
to turn Lo but hliu. and he did not
disappoint them.   He saved flu-li home
for  them when everything else  went
under the hammer, and he maintained
them In  It  hi   all   the  regal style   to
which they were accustomed, although
he still lived In his old lodgings,   lie
lived long enough to see both of th-s
glils   well   married   and   the   mother
comfortably settled Cor life    Then he
died in a charily ho>pltal in San Francisco,    lie had spent every penny  he
owned on the family of his partner.
That is what I call a gentleman."
