ROCK CREEK TRAGEDY  ' Joe Cartier died at Pitten-  drigh's Rock Creek hotel a week  ago yesterday. In the afternoon  he had a mix-up in the bar with  Joe Brady and received a blow on  the head. He nad been drinking and after the trouble was  placed in a chair in the sitting  room. Later when tbe bartender  locked the bar to go to supper  Cartier was placed in a chair on  the verandah. He fell off the  chair and began to snore while  lying on the verandah, Two or  three hours later he was found  dead. A post-mortem by Dr, McLean did not show what was the  cause of his death, but the coroner's jury decided that he came  to his death from shock, and Joe  Brady is being detained until he  can be tried before a magistrate.  Cartier was 45 years old and  had been working on the railroad.  He was a native of France, and  buried at Rock Creek.

It  was "Bill" Lewis who made the  famous midnsght dash through the  Sumallow to catch tho early morning train at Hope to herald to  Vancouver tho second ''discovery"  on Steamboat Mountain.  '-Billy the Bear" camo out last  week with his horses, guns, picks,  shovels and axes and converted  the Hamlin into a Noah's Ark for  the trip down the Frazer to the  Coast. Ho returned to Hope on  Tuesday for the last time to settle  sundry accounts for himself and  for Mahon MacFarland & Proctor,  in whose interests he prospected  the Skagit Valley.  "I spent six months in the  country," said "the Bear," "and  the highest assay I got was eighty  cents. There are no pay values in  the district and I am done with it  forever. I am going now to prospect the Bridge River country."  So went "Billy the Bear" with  his grizzled brows and fierce moustache, as grandly solitary as he  went that night from the human-  osque tent-inn on the Sumallow to  the drumming of the partridge and  the' softened hoof-beats on the  needle strewen trail,���������Hope News,  FRANK JONES IN SAN TOY  KNELL OF STEAMBOAT  Mr. Charles Camsell, chief of  the Dominion Geological Survey,  now in the Skagit valley, has  sounded the knell of Steamboat  Mountain. Mr. Camsell, who came  into Hope last week from his camp  on the Steamboat townsite for  mail and supplies, gave to the  Hope News his first impressions of  that section of the Skagit Valley  from the International Boundary  up to and 'including Steamboat  Mountain.  "We have comploted our survey  as far up the valley as Steamboat  Mountain," said Mr. Camsell,  "and havo found nothing more  favorable than a coal formation.  This is true of Lightning and Muddy Creeks as well as of Steamboat.  Steamboat Mountain seems to be  on tho edge of this formation and  I am hopeful of a better mineral  country higher up tho valley.  "In places tho coal formation iB  broken by intrusive dykeB of por-  phry and these have to some extent mineralized the surrounding  shales. The quartz lenses have no  continuity."  Mr. Camsell inspected the original Steamboat "discovery" and  laughed at the idea of finding paying gold there. This week his  survey party moves camp to "30-  Mile" and next wook to "23-Mile"  thence coming into Hope. The  Coquahalla River, Ladner Creek  and Si wash Creek also are to be  examined and charted.  A boy in the home  two in the hospital.  worth  There are 25 goats in Keremoes.  .

In the fall of 1894 Three Forks  was, the busiest town in Kootenay.  The dog-catcher in Vancouver  kills on an average, three dogs a  day.  The Stewart football club has received its new uniforms from Scotland.  The King George is the name  of Reuter & Latham's new hotel in  Kaslo.  Last month in the Big Bend,  above Revelstoke six mining leases  were let.  George Kirby of Keremeos haB  opened a real estate office in  Kelowna.  Captain John Irwing has bonded  Frank Ronndy's mineral claims at  Alice Arm.  In Blairmore B. Westman was  fined $10 for peddling goods without a license.  Apricots are being shipped-from  Leslie Hill's .ranch at Osooyoos  Lake to Nelson.  A fire was recently started in a  Vancouver restaurant by a mouBe  chewing matches.

Tom Greenough who recently  died - in Spokane was buried in a  $15,000 bronze casket.  During July the customs and inland revenue collected in Revelstoke amounted to $14,351.  At Stewart George E. Hayes  was fined $300 for having liquor on  his premises at Bitter Creek.  During the past six months 26  new settlers have fruit and vegetable gardens near Ladysmith.  The recent fire in Enderby damaged Paddy Murphy's King Edward hotel to the extent of $1,500.  Thomas Jones who recently  died in Kaslo was foreman of the  Rambler mine, several years ago.  Wm. Rockerfeller, president of  the Standard Oil Co., is seeking  better health amid tbe mountains  of B. C.  Last week the Sanger drove 30  head of horses from Molson to  Saskatchewan, crossing the line at  Midway.  Cherries are being shipped from  Kaslo to Vancouver. The price  paid for them in Kaslo is 20 cents  a pound.  It is reported that the steamer  B X on the* upper Fraser river,  made $15,000 on its first months  run tbi-3 season.  There are eight licensed hotels in  Barkerville. According to its population this is probably tho greatest  numberin B. 0.  The Salvation Army are building  a $50,000 building in Vancouver.  It will be six storeys high, and will  be used as a men's metropole.  The Duke of Sutherland has presented the Province of British Columbia with six Scottish red deer.  Arrangements are now being made  to bring them across the sea.  ,  In Rossland the hotels pay a  license of $300 a year, and the;  saloons $600. With a view of  weeding out the poorer hotels the  licenses will be raised next January.  G. H. Marhard has bought the  Slocan hotel in Three Forks from  James Fox. This house is one of  the oldest in the Slocan, and was  run for many years by Hugh  Niven. ���������/    ���������  A party of settlers from California recently arrived at Fort George  by the wagon route. It took them  three months to make the trip between Ashcroft and South Fort  George.  At Frank. Rod McLeod was  sent two months to jail for being  cruel to a horse. He was also  fined $10 for riding a horse along  the C.P.R. track that runs through  the Frank Slide.

In company  with   several  other  nobles he will  visit B.   C.  next  month, and spend a month viewing  the land in the Cariboo district.  The  party   will  have   its  headquarters at South Fort George.  Fort George has a policeman but  no lockup. Kaslo and Nakusp  had the same, trouble nearly '20  ago. In 1893 there were four  policeman stationed at Nakusp, .  and no lock-up. When arrests  were made the prisoners were  chained to a tree until the court  opened in the morning.  CITY COUNCIL.

During the past few .months it -  must have cost the B. C. Copper  Co., about $27,000 a month more  for coke than when that article -  was obtainable at Coleman. Gold  contents ofits ores have recently'  shown substantial improvement  which will at least partially offset the greater cost of production.  UNION SCABS  Fernie, B. C, Aug. 8, 1911.  To the Editor of Free Press:  Sir: I would like to draw your  attention, and the public also, to  the results occurring from the  strike of the miners, stultifying  the principal of unionism.  At present there are sixty-  seven (67) miners working at one  local institution at a very small  wage, at least 50 cents per day less  than paid by the Crow's Nes6 Pass  Coal Co., which has the result of  lowering wages all around.  I know men today who are  working for $2.40 per day that always commanded and received $3  and $3.50 prior to the strike, notably bricklayers' and plasterers'  laborers. It is a well-known fact  that as soon as the work stopped  at the mines the miners invaded  every industry and sought work  and offered themselves for reduced  wages. For instance,^ they went  to Olson, where men were receiv-  $3 per day and offered themselves  for $1.75, but to the credit of the  employer there, he would not accept them.  Now, sir, I think the miners  are a very inconsistent lot.  Incidental to the work at the  local industry, $3 was stopped for  poll tax, and that was tbe time  that 67 men came forward with receipts already paid at Coal Creek.  Each man was working under an  assumed name. All of these men  worked 5������ dayR per week so that  fhey could go in person to dra*w  their rations.���������Thomas Griffith.

GREENWOOD'S  FALL FAIR  Tin*- Greenwood Agricultural  Society intends holding its first  fall fair on October 3, 4 and 5.  $3,000 are at the disposal of the  society for prizes and premiums.  Committees are already appointed  and working and Mr. C. C. Tilley  is manager and secretary. The  season is already well advanced  and if this fair is to be a success  it will require the help and sympathy of every one of Greenwood's  population. We hear that even  now there is considerable stir in  some of the out-lying districts  amongst the farmers and ranchers  and if the prize list is so framed  that they -will have a chance to  exhibit their produce there is no  doubt they will avail themselves  of the o.pportuuity.  We suppose that there will be  a mining section and in that department there should be a great  exhibit, as no part of British  Columbia can show anything to  equal what is to be found in the  Boundary country in the shape of  minerals.  As already stated the time isj  short, and as this fair has to be a J  success, it will require the united  efforts of every person with the  interests of the district at heart,  to bring it to that happy conclusion.  than the human mind. It is pure  skill. And then, best of all, it  isn't the slightest bit of use; hence  it is a real game.  Advertising is like working a  churn, you've got to keep right  at.it if you're going to get any  butter.  Thinking Themes  There is a peculiarly invigorating intellectual result produced by  studying a thing that is perfectly  ' useless. It gives that tonic effect  of Play, which children find in  their games and which anything  like a Purpose destroys.  Every one ought to have some  sort of diversion to which he is  addicted, that will do nothing but  divert. To prove that a game improves the mind or is "good for  you" in any sort of way-is to  demonstrate that, in so far, it is  stupid. The glorious element in  golf is its monumental silliness���������  consider a grown man chasing a  little ball over half a township and  counting religiously how many  licks it takes to get it into nine  holes. That the game incidentally  draws-one outdoors and shakes up  the liver, simply classes it with  sawing wood. It is the idiocy of  the thing that does tho "tired business man" good, even more than  its physiological phase.  I have in my library Charles  Dodgron's "Curious Mathimatica"  (ho was that strange professor of  mathimatics in "Wonderland"),  and Paul Cams' book on "Magic  Squares," and a number of similar  works that I prize highly. And,  speaking of Dodgron, was there  ever more delicious nonsense than  his Alice books? One can imagine,  with what abandon of fun the  mathematician threw himself into  their composition.  Even so, of all games, chess appears to me to be the very cap aud  crown, It is the only game that  human ingenuity has never* fathomed and exhausted. Two expert  checker players will draw every  time; the game is known, to the  bottom.     But   chess   is   greater  Not a Chance  Gambling is an evil that has  fastened itself on both old and  young in most countries. Many a  player goes into a game where he  thinks he' has just as much chance  to win as the other fellow. Perhaps he does win. If there be  bills or "white money" on the  table there is a fascination that is  seductive, win or lose.  Usually, little sympathy should  be bestowed on the chap who relates a sorry tale about being sep-  erated from his hard-earned wages  or his savings by gambling.    If he  play "roulette, faro,   dice or poker  he enters into the chance contest  with the idea of beating his opponents.    Somebody must win  and  somebody lose, except where there  is a percentage that goes to  "the  house," in which event tbe players will leave penniless   if   they  continue in the game long enough.  Gambling has become   such   a  f fine art, however, that  a warning  to   the   unwary   may   not   come  amiss.    Like everything else there  have  been  inventions  and    "improvements"���������crooked devices by  which the  element of chance   is  removed.    In a number of sensational raids made in New York it  was found that players were systematically robbed by the "switched   number"    in    roulette,    the  "killed card" in faro, "brush and  line work" in poker and shaved  cubes in dice.  The man who thinks he can go  into a. professional.gambling house  these days and get anything like a  square deal is deluding himself.  All that he can hope to win is  "experience," and this to his own  personal loss. ���������Windsor Record.  slide and was unable to stop.  At a cross-street half-way down  the decline he encountered,a large,  heavy woman, with her arms full  of bundles. The meeting was  sudden, aud before either realized  it a collision ensued and both were  sliding down hill, a grand ensem-  blo���������the thin man underneath, the  fat woman aud bundles on top.  When the bottom was reached and  the woman" was trying in vain "to  recover her breath and feet, these  faint words wore borne to her ear:  "Pardon me, madam, but you  will have' to get off here. This is  as far as I go."  Apples As Medicine  A modern scoffer has recently  asked whether it would be possible that Eve yielded to the .serpent because he told her that apples were good for the complexion.  Whether this argument was needed or not, there is no question  that it is a true one. Nothing in  all our varied and fascinating  range of fruits holds quite the same  quality as the apple.   -  A raw, ripe apple, at its best is  digested in S5 minutes, and the  malic acid which gives it its distinctive character, stimulates the  liver, assists digestion and neu-  traliizes much obnoxious matter  which, if not elirrjinated, produces  eruptions of the skin. "They do  not satisfy like potatoes," some  people have said. to whom they  have been recommended as food;  but the starch of the potato, added  to the surplus of starch we are  always eating, renders it undesirable as an article of too frequent  consumption.  The more fruit we add to our  dietary che clearer brain and  clearer skin we are likely to have  The End of the Line  One cold wintry morning a man  of tall and angular build was walking down a steep hill at a quick  pace. A treacherous piece of ice  under the snow caused him to lose  control of his feet," he began to  Bad Bandit  Tchakirdji, tlie bad bandit of  Turkey, is on the move again. For  a little while he had been inactive,  leading a life of luxurious ease,  with a band of faithful followers  about him, in the foothills and deserted places, far from tlie haunts  of men. But now, writes a correspondent of the London Daily Mail,  Tchakirdji is terrorizing Turkey as  of old, and only a few days ago he  appeared suddenly in the marketplace of the village of Guroli, in  the province of Smyrna, accompanied by eight "most evil-looking"  men. Then immediately and quite  fearlessly:  Going to tho house of the head  man, he ordered that the inhabitants���������thero aro only some fifty  families in tho village���������should be  assembled.  With fear and trembling the  order was obeyed. Standing contemptuously with his little group  of followers in the midst of the  crowd, Tchakirdji, intimated that  the first business of the evening  would be the provision of supper  for himself and his men. The  elders explained with deep obeisance that the resources of the  village were so ��������� low that nothing  but the most meagre provisions  were available,.  Tchakirdji humbly waived his  rights to a supper. He would however, he now said, proceed to the  main object of his visit. .  He gave a sign to his men and  in a few moments the heads of ten  of the leading inhabitants of Guroli  were rolling on their own marketplace amid the wailing of their  fellow townsmen.  "I am. fairly sure" explained  Tchakirdji, in a brief address with  which be closed the proceedings,  "that it was through the denunciations of one of you that my comrade, Sinan Mehmet, was surrounded and killed by the soldiers  near here some" months ago. I  have not avenged him, and I hope  that this will serve as a lesson to  any that may be-tempted totetray  me or my companions. I will kill  informers without pity, and, if necessary, the innocient shall pay for  the guilty."  With this the brigand and his  friends withdrew, and, except for a  futile expedition of a company of  soldiers into the mountains after  him, which, returned with nothing  but marching to its credit, this has  been the end of the affair.  Npt long ago the correspondent  of The Daily Mail met at dinner a  Turkish Government official who  unknowingly had met and chatted  with the brigand. Ho tells of his  narrow escape:  I was carrying out a Government survey in the mountains behind Smyrna. As I sat in my  tent one evening, a' young man  came in, saluted me, sat down,  took a cigaret I offered him, and  began to talk. I thought he was  some local notable paying mo a call.  Ho was about thirty, tall, with a  frank and open expression and a  straight forward bearing, and he  spoke like au educated man. Ho  stayed about ten minutes, and  when he had gone my servant camo  to me and said, "Do you know  who that was, Effendi?' It was  Tchakirdji, who has killed in the  last twelve years 700 men."  Tchakirdji is a "bad man" by  heredity, following in the steps of  his father, who was killed in an encounter with the troops. But he  has often aided the poor, and last  year sent a dowry of $1,000 to a  beautiful but dowerless girl, whose  poverty prevented her marrying  the man of her choice. Still says  the correspondent:  Tchakirdji lives by blackmail  varied with plunder. Last year he  took ,-������7,000 in specie from a  Government mail in tho Smyrnan  vilayet, but his more usual resource  dezvous in the- mountains of.sums  varying from ������100 to ������500.  And he employs the same methods, too, to interest his patrons in  works of public good. Once, we  read:  "A village bridge badly required  repair. Tchakirdji pointed out by  letter to a wealthy Turk of tho  neighborhood that the benefit of an  entirely new. bridge could be conferred on the locality at a cost of  ������1,000. Three times this message  was repeated without effect. Then  one evening, as the rich man was  gathered with the rest of the village ou the mosque at the time of  the sunset prayer, Tchakridji, with  a dozen armed men, appeared at  the door. Leaning his rifle against  the wall ho took of his shoes and  joined the kneeling throng in' their  silent prostrations. When his  prayer was finished, Tchakirdji  walked quietly over to the rich  man, who had nob seen him enter  the mosque, aud touched him  gently on the arm. The man started up, but Tchakirdji nodded towards tho little escort waiting outside 'tho open door, and in a few  moments tho tardy public benefactor was on horseback on the way  to an unknown destination in the  mountains. He returned thinner  in a few weeks' time, when his  friends had sent ������2,000 in gold to  a secluded meeting-place. Then  at last began the construction of  the ruined bridge. A gang of  workmen appeared under tho direction of a young Greek. The  latter was at once arrested as an  accomplice of -Tcchakirdji. He denied all knowledge of the brigand,  lie was a young master builder;  he had received written instructions  with a remittance of money, he  said, to carry out this work. It  was his first big job, and he had  asked no questions.  The young'Greek was shut up in  an insanitary goal at Thera as a  measure of precaution, and the  work on the bridge wa3 stopped.  Three days afterwards thero was  an alarm of fire at a village three  miles from Thera, and half the  garrrison was sent of thero to put  it out. Hardly had they gone  when there came a call to help at  another fire five miles away on the  other side. The rest of the troops  hurried of to the scene of the second alarm.  Then into the empty town dashed Tchakirdji and his men. They  slew the few sentries that were  left, carried of the local governor  and the commander of the garrison  together with -the imprisoned  Greek, ancl were on the way back  to the mountains before the wear}'  troops got back to Thera from their  false alarms. The negotiations  that led to the release-of the captured officials arranged also for the  completion of the bridge.  Like most successful men,  Tchakirdji is not lacking iu a sense  of humor, as this account of the  writer shows:  Once he was tracking a party of  soldiers who. were chasing him in  the depth of winter. He came  upon them, all wearied out, slecp-  ing**with no guard posted, in a  stable. Entering quietly himself  Tchakirdji first took away their  arms aud then awakened them.  "Who aro you looking for? he  asked.  "The brigand Tchakirdji,"- they  answered.  "Well, you have found him,,'  Tchakirdji replied, "but you must  still bo punished for your carelessness in not posting a guard."  Then, calling in his men, ho first  had a sound trashing administered  to his pursuers for the offense of  sleeping while on duty, and sent  them back through the snow rifle-  less to their headquarters.

William Boyd, Proprietor,     :   ���������������:     fialcyon,B. 0. |  Tobacco Culture in B. C  Mr. Louis Holman, a successful  tobacco 'planter of Kelowua, has  much to say in favor of British  Columbia agriculturists goiDg in  extensively for this important industry, and iu order that ranchers  may give it^a trail has offered to  provide 200 plants free of charge  except the express from his own  plantation, where he has made as  miich as $537 per acre oyer all expenses in a, good season, a figure  not many fruit growers iu the province arc able to"show. Mr. Holman states that with White Burley  leaf ho'can hold his own with any  tobacco planter in America, north  or .south, and. instance the fact  that last year another Kelowna  rancher netted 8487 for ono load  declariug.it tlio bif-gest piioo ever  received by him for a.loud of anything. To eucourago tbe industry  Mr. Holman is willing in addition  to providing free plants to rome  and show ranchers ex:ctly what  procedure to take in planting,  cultivating and harvesting their  crops.  Tho tobacco industry has beon  taken up with considerable i-uccess  ou Vancouver Island, where 42  men are busily engaged iu tlie business, more especially .in the immediate vicinity of Nanaimo. The  interior district is said to be superior for tobacco raising both in  soil and climate to Vancouver Island, and if they find it profitable  for the growth of "my lady Nicotine" it should prove a veritable  gold mine to the rancher taking it  up over' here. According to Mr.  Holman we have the same kind of  soil here as is found in the tobacco  districts of Cuba and with cultivation could get the same fine flavor  to our products.  -Despite the ban placed on the  weed in cities, states and countries  it is is interesting to note that the  consumption of tobacco increases  every year, while, on the other  hand,Sthe supply is diminishing  and- it is harder each" season for  the manufactures to meet the demand and the big houses are sending men all over the world to dis-!  cover new fields. A director of the  Imperial Tobacco Co., of London,  recently visited Mr. Holman's  ranch, expressed himself as both  surprised and pleased at the quality of the tobacco grown and wished to sign up a contract there and  then for [2,000,000 pounds a year  but he bad to be satisfied with a  smaller contract as Mr. Holman  could not guarantee delivery of  such a large order. The Imperial representative had just come  up from Kentucky, where he closed  a deal for over $100,000 worth of  the staple brand of that state,  which is only suitable for pipe use,  whereas the British Columbia variety is distinctly a* cigar tobacco  and naturally of a .higher grade. '  This Kelowna rancher has- also  received recently offers of contracts  from two Montreal firms,-* one calling for"500,000 and the other for  000,000 pounds a year, ne is of  the opinion that 5,000,000 pounds  can be raised between Salmon  Arm and Keremeos, estimating it  to fetch the growers 14- or 15 cents  a pound. _.  .  Another., important point to  ranchers in this matter is that in  the case of fruit culture they have  to wait four or five ye'ars for their  initial crop, whereas in the case of  tobacco they can harvest their crop  the year it is planted. Tobacco  growers down in frigid Quebec  make pretty good money out of a  rough leaf variety and we see no  reason why the industry should  not bo given a -fair trial in this  province under obviously more  auspicious ' conditions.���������Merritt  Herald.  .  A Mule's Testimony  A correspondent pends the following clipping,-.believing that it  will interest many of our readers  as tho incideiit related actually occurred in a Massachusetts court:  A driver.had beeu brought before the judge, charged with cruelty to animals in that ho had been  driving a galled'mule.' The prisoner had an expert witness in a veterinarian, who testified that the  sore on the mule's back did not  pain the animal in the.least.  The judge listened'attentively to  the long technical opinion, and  then demanded to know where the  mule was. _ He was informed that  it. was harnessed to a wagon on  the street in front of the court  building. The judge ordered that  court be adjourned for five minntes.  He took his cain and proceeded  to the street. He approached the  mule, and with the end of his cain  touched the sore spot on the animal's back. The mule almost  kicked the dashboard off the wagon.  Once again the judge touched the  sore with his cain, and the franatic  beast almost demolished the wagon  with his kicking. -  .The judge returned to the bench.  The prisoner was called before  him.  "With all due respect to the expert testimony you have had introduced in your behalf to Bhow  that the sore, on the mule's back  does not pain him I wilLfine yon  $50,!' announced the judge.. ."I  asked the mule if the sore hurt him  and he said it did."

' -Collector  -4 -  I  BOUNDARY MINES  An experienced force of miners  are now working in the Argo  tunnel and* the workings never  looked better than they do this  week.  Colonel Burritt has become interested in the Midway coal mine,  and he reports that iu 90 days this  property will be on a shipping  basis. Buildings aro now being  erected at tho mine.  Tho Emma mine has been un-  watered.  The Granby has closed its mines  and smelter until more satisfactory  arrangements can he made for a  supply of coke. The coke from  the east has proved unsuitable in  regard to price and quality, or at  least that is the common report.  The Greenwood smelter is still  in operation, and regular shipments of coke are being received  from the east. No definite infor-,  matiou can be obtained as to the  future operations of the B. C. Copper Co.  |   B. C. MINING NEWS  E. H. Leo has returned to Vancouver from a prospecting trip on  Graham.Island, one of the Queen  Charlotte group; He says that a  man does not want to be an oil expert in that country; all he has to  do is to wait for a hot* day and then  follow his nose. He brought back  a large quantify of oil shale which  he says crops over a large area. It  is so heavily impregnated -vith coal  tar that when heat ia applied large  bubbles appear ou the surface, and  the odor of burning oil gives further unmistakable evidence that the  shale is thoroughly saturated with  the goods.���������Phoenix Pioneer.

Kootenay marble will be used in'  the construction of the $200,000  artifical ice rink in Vancouver.  This rink will seat 10,"000 people,  and will be the largest in Canada.  Near Hazelton the silver-lead  ores assay about 2-]- ounces' of silver  to each unit of lead in the ore.  A deposit of oil-shales has been  found on the North Thompson  river, which carries a fair percentage of oil, and is probable that serious attempts will be made to prove  the value of the deposits from a  commercial point of view, as soon  as the Canadian Northern -railway  up the valley, is in operation.  During the last months of 1910  there were some eighty mineral  locations made on the upper portion of Siwash creek, which flows  into the Fraser some two miles  above Yale; the locations themselves are five miles from the village. Specimens showing free gold  have been brought in. The ore is  quartz, from both dykes and smaller veins intersecting the slates. As  tho lower portions of this creek  have produced coarse gold in the  past, and always been ' favorite  hydraulic grounds, the country  higher up is well worth prospecting.  Development work on the mica  claims in the Big Bend district has  been prosecuted . during the   past  summer, work having been dono on  the Thistle, Maple Leaf and Shamrock claims.    The Big Bend Mica  Mines, limited, is the only company  doing any real development work  in tlio Big Bend, having employed  about twenty men throughout the  summer stripping and prospecting  and  bringing out about a ton of  very high-grade mica at the clot* e  of the   season as   samples.   Tho  company intends to prosecute its  development work during the coming season, and,  if possible to arrange   transportation,   will   make  regular shipments.  friend   President   Taft   when   he  truly said that Canada was,'at the  parting of the ways.'    It.is hard, I  suppose,  for a conaervative member, or more strictly speaking,- ex-  member, to express what is called  an  unbiassed opinion,   but this I  can   say,   that   the   conservative  party which is opposing reciprocity  with  all its strength,   was never  imbued   with   more    confidence,  never more systematically organized for the light, and never more  convinced as to the absolute Tightness of their cause.    The government dissolved   parliament   in   a  semi-panic.    The}7 never even asked for sufficient supply to carry on  the business of the country; they  made no serious effort to meet the  demand of the west.for redistribution, and they broke faith in  a  most unprecedented manner by refusing to continue the investigation of the serious charges against  their own Minister by a committee  which the Prime Minister, himself  appointed.    It is certain that the  hopes which the government at one  time entertained  of sweeping the  prairie country have been   dissipated.     Their   western   members  are now admitting that they cannot expect to gain more than  ono  or two seats west of the lakes, and  I will venture the prediction that  even such slender hopes will not  be fulfilled.  "Nothing is of course moro  gratuitous than prophecy, though  at election times we all insist on  i  being prophets. I will join the  ranks and prophesy, what I have  good reason for believing will happen, that the government will be  defeated on September 21st, and  defeated in a marked and unmistakable manner."

Much,'very much, hinges on the  results, and I do not know that,  one can better express it than our  SAN TOY  Seats are now on sale at Logan's  jewelery store for the Royal Lilliputian Opera Company's production of "San Toy."   This is one of  the  successful   comic   operas   of  modern   times.    It   ran   for   two  solid years   .at  Daly's   Theatre,  London,  England,   and   the   tremendous hit of the piece at Daly's  Theatre, New York brought to the  late Augustin Daly fame and fortune.    With  the passing   of Mr.  Daly the American, rights of the  piece were secured by Mr. J.  C.  Dufft.    Although it is some eight  ye&rs since Mr.   Dufft's  company  toured America, the box office records established have never been  eclipsed.  'When   one   takes   into  consideration   the   fact   that   the  "Merry      'Widow,".       "Madam  Sherry,"     and   the     "Chocolate  | Soldier"  followed  closely on the  heels of "San Toy," one can gain  an idea of the tremendous popularity of "San Toy."    It would not  be fair to the clever childreu of the  Royal Lilliputians Opera Company  to 'say their   performance   would  favorably compare with that of the  adult organization,   however,  the  Canadian mauagers are being continually beseiged by their patrons  to secure return  bookings of the  Royal Lilliputians.
