The news of the decision of Mr.  Justice .Martin iii.fnvof of Andiew  FerRUbOii, tlie defendant in tlie recently heard adverse case of 'Sand--  beig v. Ferguson, has been received  with immense public satisfaction,  as it is consistent, with manifest  fair play and squares with the spirit  which does not tolerate claim  jumping on meie legal technicalities from'whatovcr source suggested  It-will tend to put the public mind  at ease, foi; claim jumping is bec-  coming', nioie of a nuisanco than  people imagine. Luckily it is con-  lined to a few. This decision may  peiliaps give them pauso' and load  them to tlie conclusion that it does  not necessarily follow ,lhat because  auman carries the Iteviscd,Statiies  in his'grip that he can get a , grip  on wh.it isn't his'ii. Mr." Sandberg  will now have the pleasure of'paying the- costs, and ''reflecting0 that  many iumaifgocs out to shear and,  comes home shorn.  , ,' y   ;-.  yThe result suggests unsold conn-,  try yarn- "I'm out o'the way sorry  Mick," said Jim, ,'ye wo'r bat in thc  jig duncin' match be Patsey., ( AVill  it cost yejnuehj- Mick?," y \  .

History docs- not  record.their shipping joy. It must  be a,wonder. They came in "here  the other day and started a small  riot at the Ophir-Lade block by  means 'of a sack of, rocks .they  biought up from Poplar,creek.  The specimens were extraordinarily ncli. Ferguson is not a town  easily excited about rich finds or  high values,. We are accustomed  to them. This stuff .shook up the  most unemotional. As a matter of  sober fact and earnest the gold  could be seen with the naked eye  at a-distance of'30 feet. A showing of ordinary galena of equal size  would be' looked .on^s a fair indication. Another piece had a nugget of rusty gold stuck to it 14  inches long, 1 inch wide and a  quarter of an inch thick, and that  was only part of the gold in that  specimen. So with thc rest of the  suck. Piobably they were hiking  aiound !f>1.000 woith of gold in  those old gunny sacks.  We are not an emotional people.  One man came along and twisted  about 25c worth of gold off one  sample with his fingeis. "What's  _*er think o' that, Jack?" asked a  b\slander "Oh, pnrty fair touch,"  iem.uked Jack, throwing the piece  back in the bag. Another asked a  friend '"See the rocks Ed and Frank  brought in? Its a marvel for sure."  "Uh-huh," grunted the friend,  "looks as if they'd struck something" That man was right. They  have stmck something. More luck  to them nnd more power to their  elbowr!

The , strain was such that a gold  ring he had oivburst his finger clear  across, lie managed to swing to a  small tree'and'so'sieved his life.

' '  Mr. Bain and a companion, John  Kennedy, were making'a short cut  for camp through very dense scrub  and underbrush'on the mountain  side when they heard sounds as of  a bear slapping or cuffing her cubs  a slight distance below them. They  were wholly unarmed, but took-no  particular notice of the matter unci  pushed on for home. . Mr. Kennedy  was leading *his companion by a  few yards when he heard the bear  crash th rough Jthe underbrush and  saw her (ling herself furiously'on  hia companion. A blow .from1 her  paw carricd'Mi. Bain to the ground  wheie he lay as if dead. ' In falling  the hear -had snapped his,,right  hand and aim sevcial .times in her  jaws. *Tho. attack hardly lasted  five bccon'ds.y'Seeing' her victim  lying still as death,'the bear turned  and crashed * back again through'  'the cover. After some minutes Mr.  'Kennedy approached 'his companion who happily was not unconscious. Mr.'" Bain 'struggled to ��������� his  feet with thc,scalp oiythe left side  of' his head'" hanging over his face  'like'a h'orriblc bleeding mask. The  sight almost unnerved Mr. Kennedy  so dieadfuhywas the appearance  presented by his unfortunate(com;  panion,;whose crippled arm,'drip-*  ping "blood, hung * useless "by his  side. As well as he could he bound  up thewounels with -handkerchiefs.'  He then' found' that, Mr.'' Bain's  scalp had been ripped''off "almost  fiom the 'nape of. the neck J , The  left, eai .was cut in two, while'the  foiehead wa's bare oncotic,side from  the no.-e to the'-(ear,- "the- eyebrow  having been,torn-across'in a ragged  gaping,wound. j-'.'Thu .mah'was'in a  truly pi Liable-,;! nil Urrrible condition  as the result,of.th'at few second's  onslaught of- theft infuriated.brute.

Mr.  Bain staiti-d on horseback���������Mr.  Kenned} walking���������ah el reached  Ferguson about 8 p. m.'without  getting out of the saddle.'- This is  certainly.a remarkable feat for a  man so seriously injured.  Mr. Bain at once proceeded to  the hospital, and/when -last seen  wa*- under thc influence of anesthetics and bY'ing operated on to an extent that gave one a vivid idea of  what he imist liaxe suffered.

Indeed, that p.uty had at, tli.u lime no  policy or principle but, that of getting  back into power by any means whatever. This position, contemptible as  ii may appear, was openly admitted  by D'Alton McCarthy, when, in his  speech nt St. Mary's, he said- "Xo  doubt in tbe world that we were out  of power, and by going in foi thc N.

You say: "While we do not believe  the socialists arc strong enough to  return a candidate for Kevelstoke, nor  is it in our opinion dcsiiable in the  public inteicst they should 'be, they  will do good service by drawing public  attention forcibly to desirable reforms  and . by ei eating a public .opinion  which will '"demand moid 'advanced  platform-i'from both the liberal and  conservative, parties." JJeie you have  acknowledged the ignorance and incompetence ov else the dishonesty of  the old parties, while at the same time  acknowledging thafthc socialist paity  alone sees the necessity for reform and  is "cicating ;publio opinion which will  demand moie advanced platforms  from'both the libeial and conservative  parties." This only bcais out the  'socialist contention that the moie'you  demand the moie you will get, and  that necessary leforins will be enacted  and cnfoiccd just in piopoition to the  growth and 'aggiessiveness of , the  socialist party.  Then you ��������� inliodiicc tho much  abused vvoids evolution and levolution.  Evolution means "ihosoiies of steps  by'which a germ becomes an adult  organism." -Revolution .means"!!  radical and sudden ' change, peaceful  or otherwise." 'What you mean by  "evolution by.ballots" 1* a in at a loss  to know. The piescnt system has  been evolving siuee'tho invention of  the.&teani engine and/ the spinning  jenny. Eiom the hand loom in the  homo of the weaver to tho gigantic  factory; from the blacksmith's forge to  the. Carnegie steel plant. Ballots cannot stop it evolving 'nor is'it desirable  that Ihey should.^ Jtwill continue to,  evolve and as'it'evolves capital will  concentrate, must '' coiicentiate,> in  order ^to ulili'*e ithe new methods.  Perhaps by evolution 1 jou mean that  we will get.back ,0110 thing at a time.  That is le.ue Ihe^govcihmcnt 111 their  hands and they will give it back to us  gradually. . J t"would .not',1 be good fo/  us to getrit all in one'geneiation. Mr.  Editor, one foi in. of exploitation is as  bad as another and so long as one of  the princinal means of production is  left in capitalist hands^the exploitation will not be lessoned.'    '  Jf tlio woiking class should return a  majority oi the U. C. government that  would be '<i political levolution.  Whether it would he in the public  inteicst'or not depends altogether upon who you mean by 'tho'public. The  socialist paity is pledged to use the  powers of government 111 theinteiests  of the woiking class. That is why it  is the .only 'paity Jambs .Dunsniun  feais. D > you suppose that il socialists  weie in power it would be' possible foi  Jim Duiisinuii- Ho" employ Chinamen  to replace thc striking mineis ln.Cum-  bciland contiary to Maw.

How soon the change will take place  all depends on how long thc woiking  class continue tov use their heads foi  hat pegs. 0 -  HI weie io ask you, Mr. Editui,  \vh..t is thc greatest.question confronting all civilized nations today I have  no doubt you would answei���������the labor  question. Still you do not think it  best to have this momentous question  treated by specialists but think thc  best way to avert 'danger is to leave  the government in the hands of the  incompetent or the dishonest. You  icar that outside capital would be  timid if we had a socialist government.  The time has auivcd when 'small  capitalists aie glad to lind any,old  place to invest their capital. Any  way you, may rest assured that so long  as a socialist government needs them  they will not scare them away. You  have utteied.ii wail of despair.
