Owing to the" scarcity of water  around Greenwood there is little  danger of any of it getting into the  mining stock.  -.

Foulds, returned  from Butte, Mont., this week after  taking part in the drilling contest.  Although they did not get a prize  in the contest they made a good  showing and gained some experience in tho manner in which the  big drilling contests are conducted.  The Bouudary men were given a  square deal, although being the  first to drill, they were ignorant of  some of the conditions governing  the ccutcst. Heavier hammers  were used by some of tho contestants than usual, persons were allowed to puss steel to the drillers  when a chauge was being made and  other little helps not customary in  local matches. However, our  boys did exceptionally well taking  into consideration tho disadvantages they were placed under by  not being in Butte some time  previous to the match.  J. It.

The objects of the society,  are of a fraternal and benefit nature  and the annual meeting is well attended by the pioneers and a pleasant evening spent.    John H. East,  of Midway, is president this year.  ���������The annual election and business  meeting   of 'the   society   is   held  previous to the dinner.

'    CITY COUNCIL-'  BURGLARIZED  Midway  Fostoffice  Visited Friday  Njgit.  ' .        ;> ��������� ���������  Friday night of last week the  the Midway postoffice was burglar  ized and the building and contents  burned.  At 2 o'clock the postoffice safe  was blown open by unknown  paities and rifled of its contents.  The office is in the building of E.  A. Hains & Co., who also run a  general store. . The noise woke  Jas. Bush, a blacksmith, who live?  at the back of Hains' store, who  saw smoke coming from the building. The fire which was evidently  started from the blowing up of tbe  safe, soon got headway, and within  less than an hour the whole structure was destrnj'ed, as was also the  townsite office adjoining.  Some Of bho content* of tbe safe  were found near the river towards  Ferry, Wash. No clue has been  obtained as to the perpetrators of  the outrage. A rough estimate of  the damage to the building and contents is S7,000, the insurance being  $2,000. Only about $15 was in  the safe at the time, and eome $75  worth of stamps. Four money  order books covering numbers 59,-  000, to 60003 were missing.  Hains & Co. are tho oldest firm  iu Midway, Mr. Hain having  opened a business iu 1895, and in  1997 formed a partnership with C.  J. Lundy.  One of the buildings. occupied  belonged to Mr. Hain and the other  to Mrs. Kerr and Mrs. Munro.  Council met Monday night, present, .Acting Mayor Bunting and  Aldermen McRae, Nelson and Sullivan.

At the Prince Henry shipping  ore is being taken out of the drift,  and the vein is increasing in width.  A car of ore will shortly be shipped.  At the Strath in ore the drift is in  100 feet on the vein, the ore retaining its high values. Forty-five  tons have been mined ready for  shipment.  J. P. Kelly left Saturday for the  West Fork to commence development on the Buster group on Wallace mountain. The ^claims lie  near the Rambler. Four men will  be employed. It is the Jntention  to form a syndicate to systematically develop the claims.  POLITICAL ACTIVITY  The syndicate to take over and  work the E P TJ has been formed,  headed by Acting Mayor Bunting.  Twenty-five local men have entered into an- agreement to pay  825 each per month to carry on  development. The purchase price  of $16,000 will be paid out of. returns from ore shipments.  At, the sixth ordinary general  meeting of the shareholders of the  Granby Consolidated, which will  be held in New York, Tuesday,  October 2ud, a new board of directors will bo elected for the ensuing year, and what is undoubtedly the best  annual report yet  uoude  by fchic company, will bo presented to the shareholders.

Survey  It begins to look as if the  Coquihiilla route for the V., V. &  E. is doomed to be rejected, and  that tho route further south, via  tho Roche river, Cedar Flat and  Silver creek, is now more in favor  offering reduced mileage and not as  expensive construction -as that  down the Coquihalla, which was  said to involve heavy work.  On Saturday a party of Great  Northern surveyors, in charge of  W. F. Miliken, who have been engaged on the North Fork of Kettle  river and also at Phoenix in connection with work on spurs, arrived at Hedley and stayed over  night at the Hotel Similkameen,  on their waj' to Roche river.  .  The temporary delay on tho  North Fork and San Poil is reliev-  ieving the engineering staff of tho  Great Northern so that a larger  force can be Bpared for the V., V.  & E. to finish up some of tho more  difficult portions of the southern  route before winter bcJb in.  The following communication  was received too late for last issue:  Editor Ledge : It is very noticeable to an onlooker that since  the Hooligans left Ottawa and  have taken up their residence in  B. C, that several of the faithful  or ^tools of newspapers are kept  quite busy trying to make the former acts of these Hooligans appear  somewhat decent, but apparently  they have, undertaken a job that  will tax their ingenuity to the utmost. While it must be admitted  that their ability in {this particular  branch of deception, after years of  practice, has developed itself into  something out of the usual or more  than the ordinary.  It is quite laughable to read the  poor old World, the dirty News or  the Greenwood Times, and note  the excuses they make use of in  trying to square the Hooligans with  the public. While {I must admit  it is somewhat sad to follow the  forlorn wail that comes from tho  owner of the Greenwood Gasbag,  because it reminds a person of a  wild animal in a cage which has  lost it's freedom. There is no doubt  but that there is a vast difference  in being twitted on facts connected  with big mo and little you and  banquetinga hero.  I think that the residents of  Yale-Cariboo have some notion of  asking the editor of the Toronto  News to chango the name from  Hooligan to that of Alfonso and  Gaston. You will ^notice Alfonse  has been very busy trying to help  his dear Gaston to square himself  with tho voters of Vancouver, and  it is quite likely that when brother  Brothier gets over his trouble he  will get agovernmon'tjposition with  a nice fat salary.

The contracts for running the tunnels were  completed last week, and it is expected work will be resumed next  week, when all arrangements will  have been completed for drifting  and sinking.  At the Jewel in Long Lake camp  an uprais9 is being made from the  230 to the 130 level. The vein is  about four feet in width, averaging  from $50 to $60 in gold. Eight  men are at work developing the  mine under Foreman J. H. Smith.  Previous to the company now  operating the mine taking charge,  a darge fcamouut of development  work was done, consisting of 640  feet of shafting, a 35-foot winze,  2,700 feet of drifts and crosscuts,  and considerable surface work.  C. H. Fair returned Tuesday  from the West Fork of Kettle  river, where he had been looking  over development on the Duncan  and Bounty Fraction, in both of  which claims he is interested. A.  depth of 88 feet has been reached  on the Bounty and a car of ore is  being shipped which will average  between $200 and $300. A. W.Boyd, a mining man from Spokane  went up with Mr. Fair to examine  the claims for Eastern parties. He  appeared satisfied with the appearance of the properties so far as developed, and thought highly of the  prospects of Wallace mountain as  a producing camp of high grade  ore. Mr. Boyd left Wednesday  morning for Spokane.  Tho first ore ever sent out from  the Dominion Copper company's  Idaho mino at Phoenix went out  Monday. It consisted of 11 ve cars,  or about 150 tons, to bo taken by  the C P. R. to tho company's  Boundary Falls smelter. Great  activity has prevailed at the Idiiho  mine for soveral months past, in  getting ready for shipments ou an  extensive scale.  The main working shaft has been  sunk and timbered and connected  with the workings of the company's'  Brooklyn    mine    adjoining,   and  much development has been done  underground.     In addition to this  a , long  tunnel   has   been driven  largely in ore,  which runs under  the   Great Northern spur to the  Granby mines.     An open quarry  or glory hole is being opened above  this tunnel,   the ore to be dropped  to' the tunnel level and taken out  economically.    There is every iq-.  di'cation   of the Idaho yielding a  very large tonnage, as it has been  known to have a tremendous ore "  body   from   the   early days of the  camp,  although  never worked to  any considerable extent before the  present management took hold.  The   new machinery plant re-,  cently ordered by  the Dominion  Copper company, is to be installed  at the Idaho, and will be delivered-  shortly,   including    an   air com-i '  pressor  plant of   25 drills.    The  large- hoist formerly at the com-.  pany's   Sunset   mine,  Dead wood  camp,  has baen brought here also  for the Idaho.     The   machinery-  will be driven by electric power ,  from the West Kootenay Power &  Light   company's lines from Bon-  nington Falls on Kootenay river,  some 75 miles distance.   The com-  pauy is also erecting a number of  buildings on the Idaho ground, including warehouse, blacksmith and,  manhine simps,  sbafthouse,!_J}o.m--~. -  pressor     building, .

The practice of polishing rice continues in the South because the  American rice-buying public is  guided entirely by looks in its retail purchases.

If the Amcricah housewives  could learn what the Oriental  housewife has known for centuries  ���������that the best rice does not glisten  when held up to the light, but ha?  a dull, powdered appearance, as if  dusted with flour; and if she could  be induced to demand unpolished  rice instead of being deceived by  the polished product, then the first  step would have been taken towards a rational use in this country  of one of   the greatest of all foods.  Official chemical analyses of polished and unpolished rices show  that the unpolished grain has over  eleven per cent more of proteids  and sixty-five per cent more oily  matters than the polished.

MARSHALL, Prop, ������  For,' many years past tho Canadian people , have demanded; the  abolition or reform of the senate.  This body performs no useful service and is a burden of expense. In  the session of parliament] just  closed the senators themselves discussed the question and tho concensus of opinion was that although  the upper house is .not needed just  at present, it will form a powerful  cheek on labor legislation when the  proletariat secures control of the  commons, or lower house. The  newspapers of the Dominion hava  devoted much space to the rise of  labor in Great Britain and doubtless this fact had much to do in  bringing about the discussion iu  Canada. The extraordinary growth  of socialism in the Canadian province of British .Columbia, where  the -two ��������� revolutionary socialist  members of the legislature will  probably be joined after tho "next  election by at least five more, has  also alarmed the ruling classes to  no small degree.  The present Canadian .senate was  formed in 1SS7, when the several  provinces of the Dominion were  united together by the British  North America act. The government was to consist of a governor  general, appointed by the British  government as representative of the  sovereign, house of senate and  house of commons.  Members of the commons are  elected by a vote of the people.  The upper house differs from 'the  Britiah house of lords and American senate, for lords are hereditary  and American senators elected for  a term of years, while Canadian  senators are not hereditary though  they hold office for life. -Each senator must be thirty years of age  and possess real eslate to the value  of four thousand dollars. In this  way ihe bony is exclusive for the  mass of the people do not possess  the necessary real, estate. No bill  affecting taxation or revenue can  originate in the senate. It, however, has the power to reject measures -brought up from the lower  house, but iu most easel; it acts as  the willing tool of the party in  power.   .  The .Conservative (Tory), and  Liberal (Grit) parties, corresponding to the Republican and Democratic parties of the United States,  are the representatives of capitalist  politico in the land of the Maple  Leaf. .Tlie ' 'Tolies'' wore the lirst  in power and the}' natural!}' appointed their own followers to the  senate. In 1S73 this party resigned '.because of the Canadian Pacific railway scandal and was succeeded by the other representatives  of capital. In 187S. thei;e was  another change ���������but meanwhile, a  good many old and feeble appointees .of the '"'Tories'' died and  were succeeded by men of another  stripe. The "Grits" remained' in  opposition for the next eighteen  years.. During this period they  launched all their invective against  the upper house. "Abolish the  senate" was their cry through press  and on platform. It was shown  that the house was a refuge for  broken down politicians, some rejected by the people and others  considered of more harm to the  party than good. It was also  shown that tho government leaders  auctioned off seats in the body to  party' friends, receiving in some  cases as high as''S30,000. The people naturally bit, and as a result  the "Grits"'were launched in office  in 3890. Since then tho very men  who were loudest iu denunciation  of the senate have become its members and principal defenders, while  seats havo been auctioned iu the  samo old way.  Tho result is that today the  Canadian senate is a body coin-  posed of won 1(1.-1)0 aristocrats,  striving to bo what is impossible in  Canada, a second house of lords.  Formerly men wore recruited from  the'legal and medical professions  hut so many of the larger manufacturers have secured seats that it  may now be called a house of corporation lawyers, stock brokers and  large employers of labor. There  is not one bona fide workman in  the house and it is doubtful if one  of thethree. hundred or more men'  appointed since confederation has  represented the masses. They have  been, in most cases, men up in  years and therefore out" of touch  .with the trend of events. Only  one of the senators was under  thirty-five when appointed, while  five of those today are over eighty  years of age.  A year ago each senator's indemnity was increased 61,000 a  year and the radical-element of the  "Grit" party began to ask: "What  'about senate reform?" It was  felt that' something must be done  because the senators were, drawing  more pay, although their work haJ  dwindled down to the passing of  divorce bills. ' To secure a divorce  in Canada a special bill must be'  introduced in the senate. This  costs money, and usually a Canadian desiring divorce resides in  some state of the United States for  tbe necessary time.  As the senate cannot be abolished orfefor.mcd without the eon-  sent of its members a debate was  opened early in the last session by  Senator David, the personal friend  and spokesman of Canada's premier, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, on motion: "That an humble, address  be presented to his excellency, the  governor general, praying that  his excellency will cause to be laid  before the senate, copies of all petitions, resolutions or documents  concerning the abolition or reorganization of the senate."  The Toronto Globe, the "chief  party organ of the government, in  commenting on Senator" David's  resolution, said: "Did Senator  David, who propounded a plan for  tlie reform of the senate, speak the  mind of the government? TJiere  are many people who think ho did.  Mr. David is the olose personal  friend of "tho premier, and this fact  lends additional weight to his utterances on the question."  He naturally advocated reform  and not .abolition, proposing that  of the members one-third be appointed by the federal goveannient,  one-third by the provincial governments and one-third by, the universities and other public bodies.  Iir justifying the existence of  such a body he. said:  "There is now, and will be in  the future, lrtueh necessity for second chambers, especially in view of  the great movement which is'going  on in the world toward extreme democracy.  "The struggle now is between  labor and capital, between the millionaire and the trust,' and the working classes. This struggle will be  the most terrible the world has over  seen, but the ascendancy of the laboring classes is apparent: Gradually the labor classes are. rising up,  and before long they will domineer  over the whole world. Personally  I am not afraid. I would not bo  afraid of that ascendancy of the  laboring: classes if I were assured  that-they would bo controlled by  the best elements of the laboring  classes. My sympathy is with the  laboring classes but tho time is  coiniug when their demands, owing  to the efforts of agitators and demagogues, will bo exaggerated. When  that time comes society will find  protecfioii in tho second chambers,  which, with the magistry, will be  the great bulwarks of society."  ' Senator McMullen,another prominent "Grit," said: "I do not  think it would be wise to go back  and havo a second chamber like  this elected by the people. If that  were done the probability would bo  that tho influences which would bo  brought to bear by combinations,'  trades union, and such organizations,1 might ho very powerful and  they might be-able to put legislation through both houses which  they cannot do now."  ' The utterances of several other  senates were of a' like character,  "Tory."-and "Grit" forgetting their  party differences for the nonce, be-;  cause of that commou enemy���������labor. No vote was taken, the object of the debate being to merely  learn the opinion of the members  themselves. '  Now, what does it all mean?  That in the course of a few years  the upper house is to be reformed,  not because tho people demand it,-  but because Capital fears labor. ���������  G-.

WILL BE HARD FIGHT  According to an official of the  "Hot Air" railway the fight between that road aud the Great  Northern is likely to be delayed for  an extended time. Chief Fngineer  "Warrington, in an interview at  Curlew recently said that the case  would eventnally go to the supreme  court of tbe United States before it  was settled. He said that this  would take the better part of two  yearB. Others are more inclined to  believe, however, that matters will  be nettled and one or both roads  building down the disputed San  Foil canyon in much less than a  year, The following is given as  an interview in the Spokesman Review under the dateline of Curlew.  H, W. Warrington, chief engineer of the Spokane and British  Columbia Kail way company, paid  here today in an interview said  the Great Northern and British  Columbia roads in the San Foil valley will be delayed at least two  years on account of the fight for the  right, of. way through the valley.  Both  roads  have   been enjoined  from working and Mr. Warrington  is of the fight will go to the United  States supreme court for settlement.  Mr. Warrington said that one  the plans of his company is to build  from Curlew to Midway, B. C,  where connection will be made  with the Midway-Vernon line.���������  Oroville Gazette.  Rich Specimens  The rich find of quartz on Scott  creek, which was made by Stanley  Menhinick two weeks ago is turning out even better than was  anticipated. He has stripped the  lead for about 100 feet and free  gold is visible for that distance.  A large specimen of the quartz  weighing 125 lbs. has been brought  to town, and' the gold lies in  streaks all over its surface. The  specimen is undoubtedly the best  yet secured in this camp and is attracting considerable attention. It  has been placed on exhibition in  the Hotel Criterion. The find has  stimulated prospecting in the Scott  creek region, several of the old-  timers ,of the camp having gone  Stunt of Postoffice Officials  A remarkable thing happened at  Boundary Falls last Monday. Subscribers to the Pioneer at the Falls  actually received their copies of the  Pioneer mailed the previous Saturday���������the mails thus travelling in  the usual time of eight miles iu 48  hours. ' Residents there are wondering why this mad haste. One  subscriber at Boundary Falls received the Pioneer of July 28 and  August 4 in the same mail on August 9, and to receive the paper for  once in the average slow time for  this section almost took his breath  away, and astonished him to such  an extent that he. felt constrained  to call the Pioneer office up.on the  telephone and inform him of this  remarkable feat in mail transportation.���������Phoenix Pioneer.

Does the Dog Reason  Another dog I owned suffered a  great deal  with indigestion.    The  least indiscreet diet would bring on  these attacks, and as they occurred  very frequently I had a large bottle  of medicine always oh hand and  kept   it on   a shelf in the kennel.  The dog seemed to have acquired a  thorough  comprehension as to the  relief-bringing    quality    of    that  bottle.    Whenever he was ill and  food placed before him, he would  scent it, walk away without touch-  it,  then turn to the shelf and gaze  steadily   at the   bottle,   indicate  plainly   his wants.     He took the  medicine as if he liked it which is  rather exceptional, as anyone who  ever tried.to dose a dog will agree.  Tuis dog, when let out, would  never   disturb    anything   in   the  poultry yard,  but the moment a  stray chfckeu lost her way into his  yard,  the. savage got the better of  him;   he would catch the unfortunate straggler, kill and devour it,  leaving only a few feathers as evidence of the murder.    Punishment  always  followed.   The  remnants  of the feathers were shown to the  dog   so as to impress on him his  wrong^ doings and make the cause  of punishment clear to him.    From  time to time young chickens would  be missing, and all efforts to locate  the guilty  one   were vain.    The  dog's yard was always scrutinized  but nothing found.  My beBt broilers were disappearing at a rapid rate and I decided  to have the dog watched. Soon he  was caught in the act and the mystery solved. The moment the dog  had finished his meal he.scratched  the feathers in a heap and carried  Block  Jack  BAILEY'S PLANES  Irwin Bit, Clark's Expansion Bits, Side Handle  Rabbit Planes, Diston Hand Saws, All Grades.

The' dog had the most embarrassed  and helpless expression at the time  he was caue;ht that I ever noticed  on a dog. An extra severe punishment was dealt out, and 1 do  not know if the mortification of being trapped or the punishment did  the work, but the dog was cured  from that moment on.  The related observations show  reasoning in order to accomplish  something for a set purpose. I believe most animals possess the quality in some degree, more or less according to their mental development.   .  In the last case described the  dog's instinct led him to cntch and  kill the chicken; but memory told  him that puishment would follow  if found out. He reasoned that by  hiding the evidences of his guilt he  would escape punishment. The  very fact of being able to discriminate between right and wrong and  trying to check the consequence of  the latter shows the necessity of  thinking, and therefore of reasoning power.���������S.
