Ho rc'pre-  bents West Elgin, and speaking recently  at a largo meeting of fanners, is reported  as follows:  "What should we all woik for," said  Mr. Robinson, "is tho interests of tho  country rather than tlio inteiests of tho  party. That is tho policy I havo endeavored to follow out during iny tin in  at -Ottawa. I care not what party introduces a (food moasuro; I always try  to support that measure, I am glad ta  ie eblt tn Bay., too, that this policy appears to_mcot with popular approval.  During tho last few weeks I havo attended a number of fairs In my constituency, and of the hundreds of electors I  havo seen I have mot but ono who found  fault with my course.  "One of tho greatest curses met with  at Ottawa Is tho lobbyist���tho man who  is always in attendance, working for  this or that private interest.

I  say, nothing ol the kind; it lias been a!  war for cqpitahsts' .greed and downright hypocrisy.

Under another cover, Mr. Editor,  1 am sending you a copy of the Tribune, in which you will have a full  account of how the poor miner is befng  "scrowod" and down-trodden. Yes,  many a man with seals and wounds of  dum-dum bullets unhealed, life-long Hi l-  tish medals for his blood, and -sei vices.  I trust that you will insert a full ox-  tract in your paper, so that jny fellow  union-workmen may be warned as to  what tliey may expect if v they venture  out here. I would specially mention  that thcic are hundrods of practical minors walking the streets of Johannesburg  out ot employment, and those that aio.  employed arc at "tho most unhealthy occupation, the average lifo of a rock-  drill man being but threo short yeais,  when ho becomes a moio physical wreck.  The mineral or chemical action of the  dust from the drilling machines causes  what is locally known as, "tho miners'  phthisis." And yet w^iilc the capitalist  knows too well that the poor miner is  daily   " woiking      in -        a "death-  chamber," ho is not satisfied but wants  more than "his pound of flesh." As you  will see fiom the enclosed copy of a  poster, I say that tlie siganl foi  a-big strike is soundod;-and_I"piay-that  it may bo God's will that the tyrants  of Uio Rand may bo crushed, once and  for all,  in  the coming strugble.

Some idea ol how rapid lias been thc  growth in the past two or thiec yeais  may bo had from the following, lacts.  With tho exception of the ruihoud oigamzations, Windsor d.cl not have a single .union up to 1901, to-day she has  11. Toionto has oigain/cd neaily 70  ujjions in tho_ past ^tlu,oo_ yeai s. and today has (118 loculs. Tho street l ail-  way men's union has over 1,000 lnoni-  bcis, thc allied printing tiade nearly as  many,  and  tho building laboi ers  700.  Brantford, a city of 10,000 population  didn't know what a labor oigani/ation  was a few yeais ago, and she now lias  23, nearly all oigam/cd in tliu past two  years.  The little city of Bcilin, where 'the  laboi congiess met_,last September, organized a federal labor union in 1901;  this wns the pioncci union Berlin now  boasts of 24 unions with loss than 9,000  population.  Gait has found tune to oiganl/o seven unions since the middle of 1901,  when tlie city had but one small union.  Montioal has the largest local-m Canada in tlie longshoremen's union, with  3,500 members '  Ontario province is thc best organized,  hav ing noarly one-half the unions of tho  country.  Theio nio 23 ccntiol labor bodies in  the countiy, and it is not too much to  say that these local congresses havo  done 'splendid work in all parts of tho  country.  They aro now turning more attention  to label work, believing that tho label  is tiie real keynote to fui thor organization.  ���They���liavo-succeeded-m-having���'tho  government printing of Ontario bear tho  union label, and also thc Laboi Ga7etto,  published at Ottawa -by tho dominion  government Mnny city governments  placo tho allied printing trades' label on  all city printing.

CIVIC EMPLOYEES.  Two letters woro received nt last  Monday night's meeting of the city council iroin Winnipeg us follows  G. II. Brown, city'clcrk, wrote. " I  have your favor.of tho 20lliiin'st., I believe there ^s such a unlon'in cxistcnco inl  Winnipeg, as thc 'Civ �� Employees' Union," but the Council docs not rocognizo  it m any way whatever."  W II. Kullan, city engineer, Winnipeg,  wrote.  "Absence fiom tlie city has prevented  my ansvveiing beforo your inquliy io  woiking of tho Winnipeg Civic Laboi  Union. I think the Union has been of  use .n making tho men tako moro interest iu then work. Tiio city employs  during tho working season fiom  800 to 1,000 men, most of our  woik being clone by day laboi, including all our paving, asphalt woik, etc.  In my opinion thc Union is a good  thing ior the men and for thc woik."

Ho was fairly woll equipped  with this vvoild's goods, and signified  his intention of doing something for the  town, in memory of his father. He  soou discovered that tho people needed  a Public Hall, winch lie decided to build  aud piesent to them. Of course, lie  could not build tho hall in tlie air, and  so he looked around, for a ground sito.  Having found a suitable vacant lot he  next proceede'd to interview^ the owner.

"This is not sincere*, of course, but I  am disturbed and in doubt."  Paul Ilavilaml, too, was disturbed  and in doubt, and it was while he was  In this mood that he went one morning  to the lav; olllce and found, with astonishment, that a blow had fallen on  Judge Parker.  He had been responsible for a brother living in Wisconsin, a bank cashier,  who. nfter a long probity, had absconded with the bank funds, leaving  behind enough debts to ruin the judge.  The men In the ollice said that if  sucb u thing liud to happen to somo  one It might as well happen to Judge  Parker, as he never tool; anything  hard.  Paul felt the Incident, an instance ot  the Injustice of life, already symbolized to him ln liis own wrongs, llo  mentioned Ids friend's disaster to Margaret in tbe evening, considering it an  episode Iu keeping with the melancholy tono ot tlieir meeting, but they  talked very litlle nbout it. being still  too occupied with tlieir own delicate,  moral and temperamental problems.  However, when Paul went home that  night nnd saw the judge sitting on the  front steps with his hat on the back of  his head talking to Nick as be bad before his bouse was disgraced and liis  fortunes ruined, be felt among his own  troubles a sense of sympathy for a fellow sufferer.  As he passed be touched the judge's  coat sleeve lightly, as a subtle sign of  regret, but his intention was evidently  quite imperceptible to the judge, for  the next morning nt breakfast he observed rumlnativcly with an air of intelligent, judicial interest:  "Wull, Paul, d'you bear about Brother Will."  Paul stared at bis plate and then  said delicately, "In life we cannot always account for everything."  "Thai's what the bank directors  think." returned tho judge jocosely.  "Well, It's a queer thing���a mighty  queer thing. 1 knew a man who did  something like It here���and be resembled Brother Will too."-  This wiis the only allusion the judge  ever mnde to the matter. Everything  in the old Parker bouse remained as ll  was before Brother Will's lapse. The  judge bad never been extravagant. He  was not obliged to change in any way  his domestic or social customs, and it  will be seen that his spirits and life  had been less nffec-ted by his rulu than  bad Paul Haviland's by the remotest  shadow of adverse criticism.  Perhaps this sketch will be supposed  too decided in its contrasts to be a  tiling of facts. On the other hand, It  may be truthfully said thnt it Is a very  moderate presentation of the vivid  variety ot persons, perhaps In the  world; certainly on the north side of  Chicago.  Plnn In  England.  In England the ordinary domestic  pin had become iu the fifteenth century an article of sufficient importance  to warrant legislative notice. An act  of parliament passed ln 1483 prohibited the Importation of pins. As a necessity of the toilet plus were Introduced Into England In the latter part  of tbe fifteenth century by Catherine  Howard, queen of Henry VIII.. wbo  received them from France.  Very good pins of brass were made  at this period, but a large portion of  them were made of iron, which was  blanched and sold for brass pins. In  order to prevent this Imposition upon  the good people of England parliament  In 1343 passed an act providing that  "no person shall put to sale any pins  but such as shall be double headed and  have the bends soldered fast to the  shanks of the pins, well smoothed, the  shanks well sbapen, the points well  -rounded, liled, canted and-Sliarpened.'__  England continued to depend upon  France for Its supply of pins till the  year KJ2B, when John Tilsby introduced the manufacture Into Gloucestershire. Iu 1K11! the manufacture vvas  Introduced Into Bristol and Birmingham, lhe latter place ultimately becoming llie great center of the Industry.    A  Mailer of Sex.

Behind the yarn mulller his face wore an  expression of disappointment and  wounded pride, and it wns evident that  the live miles *��f Hue sleighing befoie  him on tliis keen, beautiful night held  uo charms. Disconsolate be looked and  disconsolate be felt, for had be not just  been scorned b.v tho lady of his heart?  Little had he thought when he drovo  Susannah Petcrs'out to Johnson's golden woddingthat she would desert him,  and for lils bitterest rival, Ed Sparks,  aud yot���  Joel had danced often with the pretty, golden haired Susannah. She, happily conscious of her now blue ribbons  and pink cheeks, had beamed upon  him, dancing' his heart quite out of  him and himself into the brave resolve  to speak of his love on the homeward  drive, for, although Joel bad "kept  company" with Susannah for s^x  months, he had always Incited tho  courage to "ask her" point blank.  Now, Ed Sp'arhe,* on the other baud,  lacked not the courage! but rather bad  pressed his suit, even when Susannah  had clearly snubbed him. Perhaps it  was done only to nettle the hesitating  Joel;. perhaps Susannah was really  impressed b.v Ed's brand new suit of  store clothes, scarlet tie and glittering  cull buttons and studs. At any rule,  when the dancing was done and the  big dining room was thrown open it  was IM Sparks who Stepped quickly  forward and "bunded'', .Susannah io  the delectable feast, and it was Ed  Sparks who filled her glass with Aunt  Marcy Johnson's best blackberry wlnt  when the health of heist and hostess  'was drunk. And all the while1 Joel  Herrick, his heart eaten onl'witli jeal  ousy, tried to look gay as he served an-  o'.liePand less favored damsel.  Aftor supper goodbys were said,  the stone bottles were filled with -hot  water in anticipation of long 'rides  through thc cold night, the women  bundled each other up In tippet and  shawl, while the men harnessed the  horses. To be sure, Joel had but one  horse to harness, yet the crafty-Ed  managed to reach tho house door first  vvith his prancing young borses'nnd a  new, fancy sleigh. Susannah gave one  swift glance .from Ed's dashing turnout to staid Bay Charley and the old  fashioned cutter. Vaguely she beard  a1 chorus of, feminine "ob's" and  "all's.", and Joel's fate was sealed. She  sprang Into Ed's sleigh, the envy of  every other girl on the great porch.  All this 'furnished anything but  pleasant thoughts for Joel ns he drove  home alone, and when lie realized that  ut this moment Ed's arm might be  encircling the slender wab-t of Susannah he fairly groaned in spirit. Per  haps the bold fellow might even dare  to kiss her. Joel grasped his whip  tightly, nud Hay Charley sprang forward In surprise.  * Two miles had been covered,'and be  reached a point where the road wound  through a patch of woodland. The  trees stood gaunt, strange and black  against the dazzling btiovv. Now and  then a branch snapped with the cold,  sounding like the report of a pistol on  thc still moonlight.' Joel coi'Muencod  to whistle from sheer loneline.'s. Then  suddenly the sound died on bis lips.  In astonishment h.> saw a woman waik-  ,lug toward him. Nearer and nearer  th��y came together. More and mere  familiar became the outlines i)i that  feminine figure. As he slowed up ll  shrank back against a tree. -  - "Why. Susannah!"  "Oh. Joel. I'm so glnd It's you!"  There were tears in her voice. P.r.t  Joel remembered the slights, the  humiliation recently put upon lilm. ami  hardened his heait and his voice.  "Well. Miss Peters. If yon ure yoin'  hiime alone I shall be plcasrd to take  ynu under my care."  Ilia tone vvas not Inviting, bin the  shivering Susannah quickly climbed lo  his side. Joel touched up Hay Charley,  "but-for-Borne-time" remaliied_*ileiit.-  Xovv and then he trlauced nt lb" little  figure crouched nl his side, shaking  with sobs and cold together, .bid's  heart reproached lilm, and lie finally  remarked:  "Seems io me you nln't net In' right  tonight.

I���I don't believe I oould* have  stood it much longer."  By this time Joel was chuckling over  his rival's predicament, and Susahua'h  sat up in sudden dismay.  "But you won't tell anybody, will  you, Joel? The whole town'll be laugh-  in* nt me."  Joel turned serious on the Instant  "No. they won't laugh at you. If thoy  do, they'll have to answer to me. Besides, the joke nln't on you. It's on  Ed."  But just at this lime Ed' was having  fresh troubles of his own. Careening,  swaying, he drew near nulllcsburg at  n racing gait, utterly unconscious that  Susannah was no longer clinging to  the seat beforo which ho still stood,  tugging at the reins. Occasionally he  throw nn encouraging word ovcr his  shoulder or told her how brave sbe  was not to scrcnniv nnd add to their  danger. The horses would soon run  themselves out, and.the road beforo  tbem was clear.  But; alas, just as he turned Into the  town a suddou obstacle appeared ln  thoir track���Parmer Schneider's big  sleigh, laden with the rosy cheeked  Mrs. Schneider and three equally roisy  daughters! ''At Ed's warning shout  Schneider drew his placid white mare  to one side, but the flying team caught  thc rear of Schneider's sleigh, and a  chorus of feminine shrieks was wafted to the lleeiug Ed. Tbe drift was  deep, and the five Schneiders, wheu  disentangled, found themselves uninjured, but nevertheless wrathful at  thc reckless driver.  lu the meantime Ed hud reached tbe  center of the town, and his horses, exhausted and steaming, finally responded to the rein. With a feeling of intense relief Ed turned to his companion. Consternation seized him: Where  was Susannah? Caught in tbe mael  strom of Schneiders? No, his cnttei  had not been injured lu the collision  He remembereir vvith horror lhat she  had not spoken since the horses, firs!  began tlielr mad run. What if she Inn!  been hack tliere in tho woods all thin  time, frozen, perhaps attacked by  tramps? Eel was too frightened to'bu  logical. With a curse lie turned hlu  fagged borse.s back Into tbe road and  whipped,tlieni on at a mad gait. Again  be passed the Schneider family, and  ns the farmer once" more pulled out o(  his way, this time more successfully,  his good wife murmured:  "I did not think Marcy Johnson's  wine vvas so strong as that.".  Half a mile farther he met Joel and  slopped at the latler's vigorous ball.  "lluod evenin'. Ed," snid Joel, vvilh  u cheerful smile for his disemntited  rival. "Are you goin' to look for Susannah? She's here, safe In* iny sleigh,  an' you cnu Just bet she ain't goin' to  make such a mistake''again."  Ed ignored the complacent Josl nnd.  making his best bow���that is. the hest  he'could make while trying to hold the  two astonished and trembling.horses���  snid:  "I'm awful sorry I bad such an accident, Miss Peters: but If you aren't  hurt It don't matter so much, an' I  hope you'll let me see you safe home."  Susa'nuah choked back a persistent  giggle and clung to Joel's arm.  "You see, Jlr.

"I don't mind tcllin' you.' .Mr.  Sparks, thnt hereafter Susannah an'  I'll do our slelghin' together for all  time, "but If you want a recommendation to any other girl Susannah she'll  give it, an' we won't mention this here  little affair."  And Mr. Sparks, with a dignified uplifting of his fur cap and n row unintelligible words, whipped up his horses;  swung around in tho road and raced  back to town.  A Plensnnt   Interruption.

The olevalor cupacity on tho Canadian Pacific west of Winnipeg is  10,500,000 bushols. At Winnipeg,  Sleowntin, Fort William and Port  Arthur, on tho Cnnndinn Pncific,  there is an additional capacity of  7)t>00,000 bushels.' At euch station  in tho grain-growing district the-  agent keops' an order book, acccsible  to the public, in which applications  for cars are entered, the rule of first  come, first served, being observed.  Cars aro ulso furnished to tlie farmers for, loading-.at grain platforms,  and whoro grain platforms havo not  been built he is suppliod .with cars to  enable liini to load, direct' from his  wagon. Tho average' load -per car  this yonr is 880 bushels: A wheat  trcrin bound from the grain district  lo Winnipeg consists of from 30 to  50 loaded cars. At Winnipeg the  trains are' re-arranged, tho number  of loaded cars hauled to Fort William being usuully "45, containing  4.0,000 bushols. rfot counting- the  host of switchmen and others engaged in mnking up trains at shipping  stations and in receiving them at  terminals, or of the agents, opera-'  tors, etc., who have to do with directing tho trafile, there are at this  writing, 215 Canadian Pacific train  crows, .engine drivers, firemen, conductors and brakemen, averaging 5$  men per crow, at work running, the  trains from the wheat fields to^Fort  William. It takes from eight to ten '  clays to haul a full cur from the  wheat- fields to Port William and'  bring it back empty in readiness for  nnother loud.

Tbe company's  shops nt Hocboliiga were at once  enlarged and sinco early in April  .,000 incn have been employed iu  constructing ��� box cars, while 600  machinists huvo been building locomotives. Further, a. great number  of cars and locomotives have been  built for the company in other Canadian shops ns woll as in the United  States.'The upshot is tbat this year,  tho Canadian Pacific hus 35 per cent,  moro rolling stock, on, tho Western  Division ,than it had this ��� timo last,  year and 40 per cent, more motive,  power. Tho senson for getting out  thc crop, is however, vory'short.  Wheat docs, not begin to movo freely  till the end of September ami navigation usually closes at Fort.William  about the end of November; indeed  ior nll-wnter shipments to Kingston .  nnd Montreal it closes in the first*,  week in November. * Under such cir-  cumstnnccs a tremendous crush is inevitable towards the end.of'tho season. ���  .'  Some dny, 'perhaps,  the Manitoba  farmer will  seriously ask  himself if,'  is wise to .shove all his wheat on tho  market within the space of six weeks  or two months.   In times pnst. when  his crop was   but   an   insignificant  item  in the -world's production,  his  haste to get. * it * sold -and-1 shipped  before the closo of .lake   navigation'  had. little,   if any,, effect    upon,  the  price.   But 'now. that tho total yield  is approaching 75,000,000 bushols a .;  year, nnd that ho will soon havo that,  quantity   und   more   for    export,   it  *  would be woll   for - him to consider  whether ho should not store at least  ,  a portion in'his granaries'imtil the  spring,  instead of rushing it all out ;  in. the Fall.

' r  that tho popular notion of Sunday  makes it cas.er to mourn on that day.  But these considerations, in the opinion  of the undertakers, aro not weighty  enough to supply nn excuse foe making  them do their hardest work on" Sunday.  They desire to rest on "that day. Of  course, if the undertakers arc united nntl  mean business/ thero is little doubt that  tliey can bring about tho reform. If wo  are te have a "closed Sunday" in all  the cemeteries, and a man who ls in a  hurry to die cannot break in with au  axe anil cannot get m under the feme,  what is a poor follow to do? He will  simply havo to wait till Monday or  Tuesday, so ho may bo buried on a week  day. There's no other way out of itr-  excopt to flatly refuso to die at all.  IWIMAL PROGRESSIVE  .

A clear nnd comprehensive survey  of the mining and metallic industries  ot tliu 1'iovinio unci the results ot  recent geological rosourch in expanding tlie field for development is pre-  sen Ud by Sir.

'Iho year l'.IOl was rlinrnctcnrcri by  notable) advances in liniiij- elepart-  ments of tho mineral industry cspec-  ia'.ly in those concerned vvith iron,  copper unci nickel. Tho production  of metals, whhh were lormcrlj but a  small proportion of the- total minor-  u.1 output, shows a. largo relative increase as compared with non-metallic subsrances. The total pioduction  of minerals of all hinds in 1001. was  valued at 5*11,SSI,080, of winch S">,-  010,73d or 42 per cent, wore metallic. In 1900 the output was as follows : Total min'T.Us, S9,298,02-1 ;  metallic, S2,5G5,2S0, or 2S por cent.  In 1898 the metals only furnished 23  per cent, of the aggregate niin.'ral  production. Copper, nickel and pig  iron together furnish SI per cent, of  tho total metalliferous output, tho  precious metals being of very secondary importance.  I In* Nu'k.l  Ci'iMM-r Iitliiktlr.  ���During the period of live years Irom  1897 to 1'jOI, theie has been a  steady giowth in tlio nickel-copper industry as is shown by n table giving the following details: ln 1897  tlio number ot tons of ore raised was  03,133; number smelted, 90,093 ;  nickel contents of matte, 1.999 tons;  copper contents of .malte. 2,7."i0; valuo of nickel, $3.3!),651; value of copper, 5200,007 In 1901 thc number  o( tons raised was 320,913, number  smelted, 270,380; nickel contents of  matte, 4,4*11 tons; copper contents of  inatfe, 4,197 tons; nickel value. SL,-  839,970, copper value S399.000. This  industry last year employed 2,284  men who earned wages amounting to  SI,045,88'). Later statistics covering the iirst tluee men'lis of 1902  show a still green ci percentage of  increase, there being a g.r'n in value  of ���i333,4y8 in the nickel product and  81 '-'1,313 in copper over the corresponding period in 1901. This is due  not merely to the greater output-but  to improved .'.melting piocosses.  Jt on .tntl  M.-fl.  The production oi iron ore in 3 901  was three, times as groat, in quantity  ns tlint o"[ J900 being 273,332 tons  of thu value of $171,428, a�� against  90,302 tons worth 3111.805 in the  previous year, 'lhe greater proportion of *this fame lroni ih* Helen  mine.
