DUMB AS AN OYSTER  IS THE PREMIER AS TO THE RIVER  BANK PROTECTION WORK.  Kellie-s Questions all Ruled Out���������The  Government Preserves an Unbro-  , " ken Silence on the Subject���������The  "Slocan News and its Reference to  'Mr. White.     -'   ' '  That Mip  mutter of the river hank  ���������,**. - improvement will not bear investiga-  . tion seems only too  evident  from  tlie  course pursued hy  thc government in  withholding all information  concerning it, and  thev seem  determined, as  fa;- |is they are able, to keep the public  completely in the dark as to  its scope,  cost and how provision has been  made  for the money now  lm|������ff -expended.  ' Mr. Kellie' has made an Jtonest effort  to have all  this information  given   to  the.public,   but the government, shel-  "tenng themselves behind  Mr. Speaker  ,    -and-,*the .technicalities of, the  Miles, of  order, have  blocked  his  every endeavor.    His questions as to why the provincial government refused , to co-ope-  .    rate with the Dominion, and neglected  to take advantage of, the $10,500appropriated for this work by the latter last.  year;. as to how the work here is  now  being done,'-it������ cost'and how -provision  has been made for it, were all ruled out  of   order   on   technical   grounds.    He  amended his questions so us  to,bring  them wit'hin the rules and again -submitted them but, for the -second  time,  they  have been   barred.   Now  this is  ' inforinatioirwhich tho public want, information   they  should' have and  for  which they have asked :' it is infnrnia-  '.   tion the government  are   possessed of,  ���������and which they  could   furnish   if they  so desired butcwhieh thev seem  deter-  mined U) withhold; even a ropros-enta-  S      ' - ,1* '  t.ive body like the Board of Trade have  been unable to  learn   their intentions  , and  plans with  regard  to -this work.  The silence of "tlfe"gov������*rnmentc can   be  open to .only, one, construction, thai    is,  it-Jser ves   their ,, purpose, whatever   it-  might be to  withhold  all  information  " 'on the subject. 'For,if, they have nolh-  "   ing to hide, i'M.hey"desire thi"'public to  know-all there is to  be-known on the  subject ;{in a  word,   if they  have'any  , intention o'f dealing honestly and fah-  ly with the public, why is it necessary  to block any and every.effort- to obtain'  information   that,   would  throw some,  Might udon their proceduie in the  mat-'  '   ter of this protection work ?  Ih the Slocan News of the 19th inst.,  (fiere appears an open letter from its  'publisher, D. K. Young, expl.inatory'of  an alleged interview with Mr. White,  which appeared in its issue of the 5th  inst., wheiein Mr. White was made to  say that he- expected to have a walkover  as the opponent of'Mr. Kellie.' To the  MAll/Mr". White repudiated the intoi-  view and expression** attributed to him  therein, and this, is how the editor  . of, the "News! explains it in his  issue of the 19(h.   He saws : "I was ah-  ij '  ' sent at the time Mr. White was iu the  city atid the Ne ws' reprosontati ve gailied his information from the over-zoal-  .ousnoss of some of Mr. White's friends',0  and knowing that Mr. White and 1 are  the best of personalr friends, he gave  publication .what he then and  still cniisido'-s reliable inforination, but  as I said before it came from his over-  zeahiiis admirers."  Now this is all right.as far as it goes,  and the Mail is quite content to let, the  scribe and the Q. U. determine between  theuiselyes, who is to be, believed, for  tbe reader will notice that, the News  man ''still considers it reliable information." But the writer of the letter iu  question goes ori to express the opinion that should Mi. White oppose Mr.  Kellie the latter would be badly snowed under. The .Mail does not know  whether eitliei of the gentlemen named will offer himself as a candidate in  this riding at the approaching election,  but what it- does know i.s that if Mr.  White's "over-zealous friends" succeed  in swelling his head to the point where  he believes he can have any kind of a  walk-over (except up sail creek) iu this  riding, as the representative ,of and  apologist for the Turner government���������  he will be most rudely undeceived when  the voles arc'.counted. And we are nl-  ;so convinced that if Ihe News man  knew as little about his paper business  as he evidently does of the political  sent.in'ient of this riding, be would soon  be looking for another job.  ���������with envy. But/with all its mock-  heroics, and its i -sumption of virtues  to which it has ever been a stranger,  it has convinced no one of the rectitude  of its course, neither has it succeeded  in minimizing the public oppiobrium  earned by its desertion of a cause it  believed just for the smiles of a gov-  eriin'ient which merits the condemnation of every honest elector. The sight  of its distorted features arid lishwife-  tones of his voice ���������seine-.* no one, niucli  less the'Mail, so we will continue our  little story of a .souvenir book.  Last week we mentioned the fact  that the Herald was dickering with  the government for a certain number  of copies of the book at. so much per  copy; this week we are able to give the  price- The following is taken from the  proceedings of,the legislature :  Mr. Kellie asked.���������(1) What, offer  was made to the executive council to  supply copies of "Diamond, Jubilee  Souvenir" of N<-rth0 Kootenay by, A.  Johnson? (2) Do the government'intend to'accept the offer made?     i  Premier Tinner replied.- (I) One  thousand copies lor $500. (2) Theexel-u-  tive is not aware that the proposed  publication Ins been issued and lias arrived at no decision regarding it.  Now,   we have  the   measuie  of our  oiiterprising(?) conlemporai y, and .$500  is just its size,   at   its  own   valuation,  too.- ' Is that the'price ot the principles  it once professed but since abandoned!'  Is th>t. just what it  is  worth   to it to  play   iu  Turner As Oil's back  yard   for  the next few   months, $500,.is that, all?  If that-is so���������and the   public can draw  its own  conclusion,   knowing the   circumstances     of      tlio     turnover���������the  Herald  and   its  hook   is  a most enterprising; enter prise indeed, but of a very  questionable character.    It really doe*  take enterprise  to 'obtain   $2 fm-what  you already offered to sell for $1.    Vet  this is the  Herald's  proposition   to its  friends,   the Tmner   government.    In  its   issue   of   May 20, ,'07 it. advert ised  this book at 25 cents  per single  copy,  and now proposes  to  sell   the government 1000 copies at 50 cent-s per copy���������  only an advance of 100 per cent, on the  regular price���������-Talk" of a rake-off, how  does, 100 per cent,  strjke  public.    But  this N piohahly what-the   Herald 'calls  "enterprise"; honest   men   will   be  inclined   to call'it by  another namiya  name whi'-h   is  not  generally .used in  reports of some cases  which  coine be-  foie our emu ts of justice.  *   Of course the deal'has not been eotn-  .pletcd   (anci~~-that's>   what   makes   the  Herald so hot, it  has  not yet got the  $500) for, according to Premier Turner,  as the publication  has   not-been issued  the, executive .have  arrived  at no decision regaiding it.    But   he didn't say  that it would be  if  the   Herald proved  obedient1 lo bis dictation   and supported  bis candidate,  did   In-?   But, then,  Premier Turner is a very reserved man  when it. comes to answering questions  and   be   probably wanted   to  leave his  heal ers   something   to   guess   at,   not  caring to tell il all at once.    His answer  iiKo goes to   prove   thai,   with   all   its  boasted enterprise Ihe   Hel'ald was unable to produce its hook until the happy  thought struck it to lap the  public till  for a "subscription," as it calls it.  As,,to   its  savage   alt-ark-  upon   Mr.  Kellie for asking  these  questions--the  answers to which have given the public  an insight   into   the   Herald's   mor/us  operandi���������it  is  entirely   unwarranted  since  thai gentleman   has   not, <so fails we can learn, expressed  au  opinion  is to whether its deal   is a good or bad  'one fiiim a public point, of  view; so far  he has merely   asked   for  information.  Willi regard   to copies  of  the Mail  purchased by thegovernment, to which  the Herald refers, we have   nothing to  hideoi tube ashamed   of.    They   contained legitimate write-ups descriptive  of the various camps  in   this .disU id,  which this paper went to  considerable  exp������m-e and labor obtain.    They were  original and were neither stolen "cut inly or hashed ovei* from others as   weie  sonievvrite-ups  of  Lhis  di.stt ict. vv Jiich  have appeared   elsewhere.    They were  reprinted  and  copies "sold   to the irov-  ernmenl   at, the  rcyitlar price  of five  cents per copy���������the' si   as  paid   by  the'general public, and not al UK) per  cent more than the regular, [nice as is  Ihe Herald's offer io th,. government.  Further, the purchase of these 2.50II  copies,by the government was followed  ,    THE ESTIMATES.  An Expenditure of Nearly $2,000,000  Provided Election Year.  Hon.

Doyle, alias Sullivan, who shut, and  killed Dennis Connors at Kuskononk  on February "13, was sentenced by  Judge Trving t<j be hanged ou Apiil  22nd, next.  Tlie evidence showed   that   Connors  was    sitting   in    Eiickson's    hotel   at  Ixuskonook shortly after 1] o'clock on>  the night of   the   murder.    Doyle   ap-  pioached him'and pulling out a   pistol  said:    "Dig   up   or   I'll   shoot,   you."  Connors evidently thought that  Ooyle  was joking  for   ho   replied   smilingly :  "Fiie away."    Doyle pulled   the   nigger and Connors fell dead  at   his  feet  with a bullet through his-bieast.

In
our iipmiim silver hat-more to Iom--
than to -LT.'iin through the foi tunes of
war. A l.ugei volume of money,
which the exigencies of (he war would
in,-ik(' neces��ary, would not lead to the
coinage of silver to meet the situation
but to an is.siie of paper money which
would displace silver for years lo come.
Whether an issue of paper money
would be in the form of greenbacks or
national bank notes would, of course,
depend upon the temper of congress.
The silver men, wedded to metallic
money as I li'ey are. would hardly place
themselves iu opposition to a greenback i.ssiic should it be deemed necessary to meet the condil ions of war in
t hat , way. Greenbacks would prove
t he compi omise between the advocates
of silvei on the one hand and the
champions of national bank' notes on
the other.
In (ho end a successfully 'conducted
waii with the volume of currency
largely incieased and business,booming
as tbe result-of a, larger por capita
circulation, would prove detrimental
to lh" free coinage issue in that the
tempoiary prosperity thereby brought
about would be heralded as one of the
first ,fruits of, the gold standard. A
full stomach is the enemy of foresight,"
aud thc American voter recks not of
thi),fut ure if the present is embellished,
with ' pleasant < dreams. He would'
��� awaken to the necessity of bimetallism
again only when the country reaped
another clearing-house panic, and
showed him'the mistake of accepting
a full meal for a permanent, grubstake.
In I vv o diioctions. perhaps, t lieoniin-
ing industry would profit, from a .wai.
There would undoubtedly be r'udarger
demand for copper for electrical appliances, and the self-evident demand
for lead would st imulate I be pioduction
of that metal. This would have a good
effect upon our silver-lead mines foi
the I ime.being and bring into renewed
activity those districts thai produce

one of'the speakers referred to tho

man told me who had wintered a't
Klondyke seven years that il was so
cold in .January that they froze the
flames of their candles and sold them
for strawberrii s. He said they kept
their (ires over night by putting (hem
out iu the air aud letting them freeze
and I hen thawed them out in the morning. He said he had'seeii smoke freeze
in the chimney until the lire'wouldn't

.'. m THE KOOTEXAV MAIL  ?A CE  Jdlerjess.  (By I^-idy Cook, nee Tennessee C. Claflin.)  It is -xnniewhat Miigiilsir that idleness  :iiid   gentility   should    he     popul.-ulv  synonymous. "The biitcher. tho baker,  the   candlestick-maker,"    and     other  tradesman, as well as the upper ranks  of business men, geneially look forward  to the'day���������the   happy   day   as   they  fondly dream���������when  they shall  have  made   enough   money to retire  from  . work and can enjoy   their otittm cum  'dignilafc.   There is some! hiiig natural  about this. They are then self-pensioned.   They  have  earned  the, light    to  repose.   They have fought the battle  of life and  come off victorious  in   a  pecuniary   sense,    Whether  they can  cast aside  their old   habits-  with  ease  lind find enjoyment in new one.,is for  '  theit;'o\vii   consideration   only.   Anyhow,   they are entitled,to  make  the  experiment.    And were the  matter  to  rest'here, little or.no  mischief would  ensue.     ���������    ���������.  Unfortunately, however, the success  of the parents usually begets a particu-  <s      lar  ambition   in fthe'   minds    of    the  '   children.   The daughters desire  to  be  ladies, the sons to be gentlemen.   This  of   course,   would   be  praiseworthy  if  connected   with ,somn   useful   career.  When,   however, .as  is  too often  the  ''  case; it means  simply  to live  an   idle  life,   squatting lazily - upon   the  hard-  "    earned fortunes; of thi^ir fathers, it  beT  comes a  calamity for   all   concerned.  But Wjhen it also leads them also to.be  ashamed  of their origin,  and  of the,  ,' honest'   methods-   by,   which   , their  affluence has lieeti1 secured,,it  is little  short of depravity���������mean,  despicable,  repulsive.       ' '        .     '  .Sucli false views of life unci of what  ;is .'becoming,'' must    needs     lead     to  - ��������� disaster.  Because to makeup for want  - of birth or breeding,   they  launch  out  ���������into vulgar extravagance,  endeavo'ui-  - ing to dazzle where they cannot con-  '- vince.    Yachts,   racers,   and   hounds,  -expensive establishments, gambling  and voluptuous living, are a few of the  . means by which the carefully gathered  *��������� well 1th of successful merchants oi pro-  : fes.sional men is dissipated by then  '; ' heirs. Very few of these care to walk  i   in' the -steps of   their   fathers,   or   to  - engage in the occupations which made  i   them   rich.    And   probably   the   iirst  lessons in wild expenditure on the part-  of thetti prodigal' sons  were learnt, atom*' Universities,   where,   for   a   long  period, generations of vain  or*" weak-  minded  youth   have   been   hopelessly  corrupted.  '   "It" is'sad' to"ieflect' how   often   the  methods  by. which  a successful   man  '    endeavours to advance the position  of  his children'become the means of their  ruin.    He reflects,   it.may  be, on'  his  own   scanty  education - or other disadvantages in 'early  life,   and   determines that his"sons shall  fare  better.  They   shall ,go  to some  great. Public  School,   or  to Oxford   or   Cambridge.  They shall learn all that may he learnt  in   these homes ol the * Muses.   They  .shall mix with gentlemen  and  noblemen,   make   superioi    acquaintances,  and catch their tone.   And, .that they  niaynot.be  prejudiced   by  his status,  he supplies them   most  liberally   with  pocket-money,   and   encourages  them  to shine in the display of wealth. After  a long course, during  which  parental  hopes  have  been   excited,   they  often  return to the old roof with only a  thin  veneer of-scholastic requirements, hut  '��������� deeply   engrained  with   all   the   vices  ,   which, it is  well  known,   these' seminaries are able to teach.    Tln-ir  ostentation while there is secretly ridiculed  by tlieit companions, their   mora Is are  ruined, and they come  back' with appetites whet ted for [.rofligacy, despising  business, averse to  useful  occupation,  and impatient of their familyand hcune  surroundings.      ���������  In I hose cases, however, where these  evils have been minimized or even  avoided, wheie they have really  studied, and their habits and conduct  have been fairly decent, they are still  as averse as the former to the occupations of their parents, and are occasionally prompted to endeavour to  distinguish themselves in fashionable  society. This i.s often very diflicull.  NevertheleM-s youth, money, and perseverance, can accomplish much in  time. And if they succeed, what, i.s the  result? A more reputable mode of  squandering than that of others, but a  lite of greater u.selessness. And the  mistakes of both classes arise thiough  the fault of the parents.  For all true education, begins nt  home. Correct habits and thoughts  must not only originate there, but  must there be quickened into activity  and be trained to steady discipline. As  the tree is, so are ils fiuits ; and as the  home is, so -are its children. In an  atmosphere of honor' thev will he  honorable���������surrounded by deceit they  will be deceitful. Where wealth is  worshipped they will bow also. Where  idleness in tolerated they will despise  work. It i.s worse than vain���������it is  criminal���������to send youths wilh unformed or badly formed characters into  great schools and colleges, and expect  them to .profit by the experience.  Nothing less than deeply rooted sentiments of purity, and habits strong  from daily use and correct, from conviction, can enable I hem to escape the  contamination inseparable from these  establishments.  The devout Anselm said that:  " Idlc-  . I jess is the sepulchre of ii. living man."  his own household."   Poveitv  He who does nnthiiifz is nothing: he is  engulfed, swallowed up and obliterated  by the tenure- of hi.-  existence.    He is j iudu--ti iou-*; idle from compulsion  woisv off than if he had never been, for  he neglects the opportunities' which  God and his- age have given him. The  old prove! lis say: " Idlenc-s and li.st-  are sworn friends" ; " Idle men are the  devil's playfellows" ; ���������'' Idleness is th������  greatest prodigality in the world."  The moralists, from .Solomon to 'Dr.  Watts have not only vented their  strictures on idleness, but on  sluggish-  as well.    To be dilatoi-v or perfunctorv  i ��������� -  is to be p.-irtiall.v idle. To be improvident is the s;i!ne. We are invited to  consult Nut nre and imitate her foresight. And "Whatsoever thy "hand  findetli to do," said the Preacher, "do  it with thy might."  Idle and addle have the s.mie. meaning, and, with all, are derived from the  same word, which signified to he sick,  corrupt, void. An idle person is ,;n  ailing perso.i, sick iii bodj- and-* mind,  corrupt,in morals, void of under.-la tiding. An idle life is an addled lify,  noxious, unproductive, and dead to all  goodness. Yet this is.I he life which so  many covet and others are proud to  possess, and that is the individual wlio  is allowed- precedence over the in-,  dustrious!  "Natuie fits all her children with  something to do," said" the poet, and  truly then* is so iniich to be done in  this world,��������� physic-ally, mentally,  inorally���������that it befits none lo he' itl 1 v.  .There am Augean stables to be  cleansed, ancient,and mighty wrongs  to be rectified, grave abuses'to be redressed, an'd dense clouds of ignorance  to bo dispelled. The world mourns  from want, and misery, and crime, and  " the diii k places of ( be earth are full  of cruelty." Power and injustice  trample upon, the" weak 'and the innocent. -\Natjon is arming against  nation, and " a man's foes are they   of  t  .......,,���������.      ^ y prays in  I vain for its daily   bread.    We  see   the  ind  the wicked ciiininal from want of  knowledge. Our boa-ted brntherhocd  is a poetic dream. Each fights for liU  own hand,' regaidless of others, and  the end no man ran foresee.  "So many worlds'!������oinucli to do,  '        ������  So li tile done, -uuli thing-, to lie."   ,  Surely humanity requires the best  efforts of all its members. This is no  place for idlers or lovers of false  gentility. There is work to be done,  -serious, patient, and persistent woik,  not the service of' the slave, but the  cheerful labour of the free man, full of  ]oving-kiiidiies������. The world i.s still  young, and noble .duties lie before it.  As it grows wiser it will grow 'happier,  until love supplants selfishness and becomes the universal law of its being.  As Tennyson sweetly sang to the Great  Worker:��������� '       , ,  Our little sy.-tc-tn-. have liieir dny ; ''  They hsive their day and i-ea-e io lie :  Thoy are hut broken light-, of Thee,  - And Thou, O Lord, an more than thc-y. '  ���������Wc have hut fallli : we cannot know ;  Kor knowledge is pf tliini;-; we .-ee ;'  And yet we ti-u'-t it comci from Thee.  A beam in darkness ; !cL-it grow.  Let knowledge grow from more to more,  But more of reverence in us dwell,  That mind and -siul, according well,  Jfay make one mii-ic ns before.  J^M    IC_|._J...  LIMITED LIABILITY.
