The Granby smelter at Grand  Forks, has dumped large quantities of slag into the north fork  of the Kettle river. Since the  water went down in the main  river this slag has formed a bar  two acres in extent in the rear of  the old site of the Yale hotel,  and diverted the course of the  stream, so that the water is cutting away valuable* ranch land  on the east side' of the river.  Fish caught in the river are full  of slag behind the gills.

Likes the West  "The Canadian West is a wonder  ful country, pregnant with great  possibilities, and contains a happy  and prosperous people," said H.  M. King, chairman of the London  and Dominion Trust Company of  London, England, who has been in  the west for Bomo time in his capacity of president of the Alberta,  Peace River and Eastern Railroad.  The railway is projected to run  from Coutes, on the American  border, up the Porcupine Valley to  the east end of Lesser Slave Lake,  with a 6pur line between 300 and  500 miles long to Edmonton, a  branch east to the Hudson Bay and  west to British Columbia and the  Pacific Ocean.  "The wonderful development in  the West led us to buy the charter  for this railway in London, and  we will commence construction  just as soon as the ice breaks in the  spring. --The farmers in tho west  are gradually beginning to realize  the necessity of mixed farming, and  the farms in consequence are becoming more profitable every year.  The West should also be a very  large fruit-growing district."  CITY COUNCIL  The Council met on Monday  evening.

It is a  coal camp but wood in short chunks  is still adored by the populace. Ed  Clark has recently captured Peck  MacSwain, and although tho water  is full of alkali Peck is bearing up  bravely, and is firm in the belief  that a water wagon is eminently  superior to a cushioned beer tank.  With Ed and Peck hived in the  same office the Arizona Kicker of  B. C. should ere long paint a halo  over the Tulameen that will cast  the stars into the discard. It has  been reported that" a full bottle had  been discovered underneath the  Courier office, but we are positive  that this is but an idle rumor.  Sods is the name given to cheap  keg beer that is sometimes sold in  this country. It is poor slop owing  to the deleterious ingredients that  are used in its manufacture.  Some people think that hell is a  myth, but they should withhold  their decisions until England and  Germany run their armies face to  face, and turn on the machine guns  Awav back east the other day a  bull derailed a freight train by disputing tho right of way with the  cow-catcher. He was not Irish,  but lost his life by being bull-headed.  Some scientists are trying to  make human beings by chemical  action. If successful the process  would be of little use, as the world  has not yet grown tired of the old  method.  In all unincorporated   places in  this district, the police have issued  orders that baseball must   not   be  played on Sundays.    It might   be  that tho fans make too much noise  and   have   been     disturbing   the  prayers and dreams of   those   who  think that one day   is   more  holy  than the others.    The police   have  not yet stopped joy riding, fishing,  hunting,   walking,   laughing,  the  ringing   of'bells,   or    tooting   of  whistles on the holy day.    We can  still eat, drink   water,   and   chew  gum on the Sabbath, so we should  rejoice that we have some freedom  left, although   eventually   history  may repeat itself,   and  the "Blue  Laws" again  become   prominent.  It is a serious   question   to   trifle  with the freedom of the people,  in  matters that cause no moral, mental or physical harm.    Exercise in  the open air is no   more   sinful on  Sunday than on any any other day  of the week, and to seek   its   prevention is a step in the   wrong direction   The people who   have  a  mania for Sunday observance along  the lines that   they   imagine   are  right, should^ try   and   remember  that co-ercion does not   win many  souls.    No cause is helped   by oppressing that which is harmless.  By advertising you educate the  public as to who you are, where  you aro, and what you have to  offer in tho way of skill, talent or  goods. The man in these modern  days who does/not advertise is only  half alive, and is of little use to the  community in which he toddles  around to save riding in a   hearse  Ovek in Coalmont the Courier is  still coming to the front, somewhat  belated, but always large and full  of cayonnic paragraphs. The editor has recovered from hiB recent  shock, but has not fortified the  office. He will probably do this  in a short time by piling cordwood  REAL ESTATE GAMBLING  An Englishman after reading an  editorial in The Ledge about thc  evils of real estate gambling, writes  from Penticton as follows:  "I came out from England last  April.   I was eight days in Toronto and three days in Winnipeg  before   coming    to    Vancouver.  There I  was  for  eighteen   days  before I got work on a fruit farm  at Maple Ridge, where I  worked  over two months.    My intention is  to see something of the fruit growing lands in British Columbia before settling down.   I have bought  five acres in Pitt Meadows, three  miles from Westminster Junction.  Of course that land is not suitable  for fruit growing, but I want to go  in for vegetable growing and market my produce in a new way,   I  paid $1G5 an acre for my land.  On tho other side, of tho Pitt river,  exactly opposite my land, gOOO aro  asked for an acre. Of course this  land is nearer to Coqnitlam and  will be "ripe*' for sub-division in a  year or so���������according to the real  estate man. I have written to an  Ontario periodical about the land  speculation out here in fruit ancl  farm lands, and lie wrote to me  he will write a leader on it. I shall  also write to two weekly papers in  London, England, and if my letters are not good enough, I thiuk  of going back myself and holding  public meetings. My intention is  not to run the country down, but  to warn people against iiivestments  without seeing tho properties.  "I have letters from real estate  men in Regina, Sask., giving the  value oE one and tho same town  lot at $550, 8800, $1,000 and $1,-  200; and of another lot at $150 and  $250. And some of these men are  so called reliable men, in fact, one  of them is a partner in the firm of  McAra Bros., (one of tlie brothers  is acting mayor of Regina.)  '-I thought speculation was bad  in Toronto, but it is nothing if  compared with tho West.  ���������'But where comes the so-called  sound advice in, when a man gets  values of one lot at $550 to $1,200.  I have been a regular reader of the  weekly papers 'Canada,' 'Standard  of Empire and ''Canadian Mail,'  published in London, England, and  I have found out that those papers  favor the buying of town lots too  much. I went from New Westminster to Langley and was surprised at the small percentage of  cleared land along tho B. C. E. R.,  but as long as the speculators ask  $150 to $250 per acre for heavy  timbered land, which costs $250 to  clear, farmers have no.desire to  buy at town lot prices.  "Many Boards of Trade and  leading men seem to break their  heads about the remedies for the  high cost of living. Well, in my  opinion, the high cost of living in  Canadian towns is duo to tho holding up of all the land in and near  the' towns by speculators who  leave the land in a disgraceful  state. Near the towns in England  and all over Western and Central  Europe we find the land close to  the towns cultivated on the inclu-  parsoi slept sound that night.  Early in the morning while Mr.  McDearmid was at his desk, oue of  the elders came downstairs and  complained of having very severe  cramps and asked him if he had  anything in the house that would  give him relief. McDearmid suggested Jamaica ginger, painkiller  and cayenne pepper, but elder remarked that none of theBe agreed  with him. Finally McDearmid  asked him if could take a glass of  brandy at which the elder's face  brightened and he remarked, "It  is just what I was after but I am  travelling with two -good temperance men and I would not want  them to know that I took it." He  got tho necessary decoction aud  went away.  A short time afterwards Mc-  went upstairs and was passing  through the corridor when the  room door of elder No. 2 qu ietly  opened and Mr. McDearmid was  beckoned into the room. The elder  No. 2 said, "I have long drive tonight, Mr. McDearmid. After  reaching Sydney Mines I have 13  miles to go, and would just like a  small flask of whiskey to keep the  chill out of me on the country  roads. If you could get it for me  I would be very much obliged, but  I hope that you won't mention it  to the other men travelling with  me for they are both good temperance men."���������Amherst    News .  sive method. Near London, England and Southend-on-Sea, a great  deal of building is going on on the  outskirts of the cities, but that  does not prevent the owners of the  land to cultivate it or have it cultivated up to the time the builders  take possession of the land, and' so  in every town in civilized Europe.  "Some people will say that the  Canadian cities are growing so fast  if compared with "Europe, but London, England and Southend on-  Sea, I know well, grow faster than  any Canadian city. London is  losing her population in the centre  parts for the suburbs, and so do  nearly all the big English and  Scotch cities."  THREE OLD  HYPOCRITES  We recall a story   told   by Dan  McDearmid of the Vendome  hotel  in New Glasgow in connection with  a good Presbyterian divine and two  elders of his church who   were returning from the Synodywhioh met  that year in Moncton. Their homes  were in Cape Breton but they spent  the night at   the   "Vendome,   and  were to take the   early  train   for  their homes the next  day.   They  sat around the rotunda of the hotel  until rather a late houp, when   the  minister remarked   to  his  elders  that he thought it would be well to  retire, although  for   his  part  he  wanted to read a few. chapters  in  the "Book" before ho went to bed.  The elders took the hint and  went  to their different rooms.   The parson then turned to Mr. McDearmid  and remarked   that  he    did   not  sleep well in a strange bed, and  if  he could give him about two glasses  of Scotch whiskey with a little hob  water and sugar that it aid him in  having a quiet night's  rest.   The  AFTER THE SALOONS  The Rev. Dr. Kramer thinks the  time has arrived to put the saloons  on the hike in Spokane. He said  last Sunday in a sermon that  Spokane has not forgotten the  assassination of her chief of police,  and the saloon must go because it is  inhuman, dishonest aud murderous.  "It is the most auspicious time  to vote on the saloon.' With * the  saloons, tho few foreigners in our  city, the franchise in the hands of  the women and our uncaught and  unpunished murderers from these  saloons, the .time is ripe for the  vote. All these crimes and saloons  go to make perdition sure in Spokane if the saloon stays.  "The saloonkeeper violates every  principle of equity. The Masons,  Odd Fellows, Elks, bonding companies, railroads and insurance  companies have given him the  black eye. The saloonkeepers can  no longer flimflam the people with  their tommyrot. They are trying  to make their business respectable,  but they have sinned away their  day of grace.  "The hottest fight ever initiated  in heaven, earth or hell will be  launched against the -saloon In  Spokane this fall. I know we cannot make the people good by legislation, but in the name of God, let  us not legislate to make them bad.  The saloonkeepers of Spokane had  better hunt another job."  kitchen to the lunch counter is the  road toperditicn.' Gaily furnished  hotels are but houses of temptation  for the girls who keep them in  order, overworked, underpaid, and  poorly housed. Poorly fed waitresses and chambermaids, forced to  slave, subject to the insult of patrons, will sooner or later travel the  path to ruin. These are the facts  as found by charitable women,  who acting as detectives for the  Juvenile Protective association,  delved beneath* a smilling surface,  and found sorrow and suffering.  Even their report turned over to  Edgar T. Davis, state factory inspector, might have remained a  secret had he not prosecuted numerous restaurant keepers upon the  strength of their findings.  The resume of tho investigation  now has beon issued. According  to these reports the ten-hour law is  unknown to hundreds of women  because their employers intimidate  them by threats of dismissal should  they discuss their work.  "The majority of girls who work  in hotels go wrong sooner or later,"  is one. of the assertions of the  association's report, aud it is lacked  by the statements which all go to  the fifty hotels investigated. Reports ou the seventy-two restaurants visited are no less emphatic on  this score.  H. W. Farmer & Co.,  .REAIv ESTATE,  Rock Creek, B. C.  co., i/td.

It's up to You  - While the 'local newspapers of  this and every other town in the  Ottawa Valley are "boosting"  week in and week out for tlie benefit of their several communities,  what are the business men and  people doing for the news-papers,  for the latter cannot exist on words  of praise alone. The best booster  a town can have is the local paper  and it should fairly represent the  enterprise of the place in which it  is published. For instance at the  present time we are trying to attract attention abroad and draw  people here. A glance at the advertising colums of the local papers  should give an outsider some idea  of the town's business interests  that do not carry a line of advertising in their home paper. Not  one half of the business men of the  town merchants and manufacturers  appear in the local papers. The  papers pnsh and boost week in and  week out in the interests'of all, but  far from all help to support the  papers.  Imagine the mental picture this  town would present to the ont-  Bider picking up this paper and  glancing over it, if the name of  every business firm appeared in its  advertising columns in a space  large or small.  Every man for his own aud general good should advertise regular;  ly in the local papers, even if he  only takesan inch spacer  The local newspaper should be a  business directory of the town.  The town has, however, several  good advertisers who constantly  keep themselves and their town to  tho front, and their evample should  bo generally followed.���������Ex.

The tendency has persisted since  the ��������� first of 'the'-- eighteen emperors  of the Ilia dynasty mounted his  throne'away .back in the dim mists'  of antiquity-when the early Pharaohs  were building their temples by the  Nile and erecting their pyramids in  the  desert.  The Ilia dynasty issued from 2205  to 1766 B.C., when it was overturned  by the Shang,' or ' Yin, dynasty, an  equally active race, which ruled until  1122 years before the Christian era.  Disaster "overtook the Shang Emperors at last, from a rising of the  people under the banners of Chou,  although Rome had not been built  and_ the, Greeks were still scattered  tribes when thoy gave' way to the  princes of the Ohou line. A protracted period of liarest followed. ,  In many respects the greatest of aill  the Chinese Emperors, Kubla Khan  began his reign in 1257, and hold the  throne until his death in 1294. In  these years tho nation was more Illustrious and powerful than ever before. A succession of Mongol emperors followed Kubla Khan, principally remembered for their sanction  of the Introduction of' Christianity.  In 1368 the MiDg dynasty was proclaimed upon the ashes of the political  structure built up by'1 the warlike  Mongols, and It. ruled', successfully  until the Manchus of the North, the  fierce, well-bull* hiill Chinese, swept  down upon Peking and Installed their  own princes In 1651.  The Manchus have never, been  numerous, and although they have  managed to keep 'their saddles by dint  of cowing the peoples under them,  they have been unable to preserve  absolute order and tranquillity. One  of the first steps they took to impress their sovereignty upon the  country was tho publication of an  edict compelling the people to adopt  tho pig-tail. The Manchus were  horsemen, and the pig-tail was prescribed as a national institution be-  oauee, the Manchus contemptuously  said, the Chinese were of the same  status as their horses. -  Rebellion after rebellion marked  the troubled reigns of the Manohu  Emperors, and in most cases the germ  of revolt was first In evidence in one  or other of the three provinces that  are causing trouble .to-day."

Playing: His Cards  It was the custom of Mr. Cameron  to fall into an easy attitude wherever  he might be. This habit led to an  occasional dialogue of a spicy nature,  and tho dialogues led to a small  square package which Mr. Cameron  presented to his wife ono night,  "What In the world are those?" inquired Mrs." Cameron, as the unwrapping of the package revealed a few  cards neatly marked, '.'For Use," and  two or three dozen marked, "For  Show."  "Those, my dear," said Mr. Cameron, "aro for you to attach, by the  small pin on the under side, to the  various sofa cushions, chair-baoks,  and unoccupied wall spaces in this  house.

The' clerks and officials in one of  the smaller bureaus at Washington  would, about now, seem to a casual  visitor,-Co be afflicted with a chronio  grin. Even the somewhat sedate'Chief  sometimes breaks into a solemn  chuckle. The joke -was rather on  them, so they tried to keep It quiet,  but it leaked out, of course. Briefly,  It was nothingness than a grand, red*  paint whirl by the most circumspect  clerk. on Uncle Sam's payroll that  caused that yrin.   '  "Uncle Charlie," as he Is called by  everyone from the Chief to the messenger, la a meek, patient llttlo'man,  weighing about one hundred-and five,  with mutton-chop whiskers, who has  struggled along for fifteen years on a  salary of $1,200. Twelve'hundred dollars does not mean affluence down  ���������there when one has a family of flvo  girls, and Uncle Charlie has always  been seedy.    ,  One by onethe girls were married,  however, and it came about that with  the June roses tho last of Uncle  Charlie's responsibilities as to his  family vanished. For several dayfl  after this event he was observed to  wear a preoccupied look. Slowly his  air of abstraction gave way to one  of determination, and ono sweltering  afternoon, suddenly laying down his  pen, he announced to the man at the  next desk that he proposed to have ft  whirl.  Tho news ran like wildfire through  the bureau, and presently employees  began to pause casually beside Uncle  Charlie's desk.  "Say," the office sport whispered.  "You take my tip. Drink about an  ounce of olive oil before you start In.  You will last twice as long." He  winked and went on.  "I wonder what that young man  really meant7" Uncle Charlie pondered.  "I hear that you are going to give  yourself a little recreation, Uncle  Charlie," the Disbursing Clerk said,  and gave him a playful dig In the  ribs. "Of course you know that it is  not exactly regular, but if you would  like to have a little advance, why, er,  I guess we could fix It up between  us."  "That's very kind of you, sir, but  I really don't think I shall need any  advance," Uncle Charlie said, sorely  perplexed.  "Perhaps you'd better leave 'the  number of days blank on your application for leave," Uncle Charlie,"  the Chief advised, meeting him In the  corridor. "But then," he added with  sudden Indulgence, "if you should  happen to overstay the time coming to  you, why, er, we'll Just consider that  you are sick and charge it up to sick  leave."  That was on Tuesday. On Thursday  Uncle Charlie's rusty alpaca coat was  hanging on Its usual hook and Uncle  Charlie was at his old desk when the  rest of the clerks came racing in at  one minute to nine. Uncle Charlie  was chipper and smiling, though his  nose was curiously peeled. The office  sport dropped his hat with its fancy  band In his astonishment, and walked  round and round Uncle Charlie, eyeing  him from head to foot.  "Nary headache, as I live!" he  finally gasped. "Say, Uncle Charlie,  put me wise to that dope, will you?  You look as fresh as a daisy!"  It was no use' trying to disguise  their curiosity, and presently half the  office force, Including the Chief, had  gathered about Uncle Charlie's desk.  "Now, look here, Uncle Charlie,"  the Chief said; "we just want to know  what you did, anyway. , I guess we  sort of���������well, misunderstood your intentions,"  "Well, It wasn't such an awful  whirl, maybe, for one or you boys,  but it was a right smart one for me,"  Uncle Charlie told them, as they  pressed eagerly forward. "You see,  for quite a long while I have had to  look after things about the house ���������  there were always so many little jobs  that the girls couldn't do ��������� and I  used all my leave working at home.  And I wouldn't have felt like being  extravagant while they were dependent on me and required so many  things. But after Louise was married  ���������she was the last one, and their  mother has been dead several years  ���������why, I felt like letting myself out a  little. It was one of the most delightful days I have ever experienced.".  "But what did you do, Uncle Charlie?" they demanded In chorus.  "Why," he said, "first of all I went  down town and bought this red necktie ��������� I've always wanted one," he  added bashfully. "And then I went  out to the ball park, and bought a  bag of peanuts, and sat on the bleachers In the sun, and drank pop, and  watched the game.

At the Bluebell mine on Kootenay lake a force of 70 men, are mining and milling about 175   tons of  o *������������������������������������"���������  ore a day.  Zinc concentrates aro being sent  from tbe Standard atvSilverton to  Oklahoma.  Tn the Slocan a deep-level tunnel  is being run on tho   Idaho-Alamo.  Nearly 200 men are working in  the mines at Ainsworth, including  those employed at tho Bluebell,  across the lake.  At the Panama in tho Slocan,  three men are mining and sacking  a ton of ore eveiy day.  J. A. Carter has taken a lease  and bond on lhe Martin group, on  the South Fork    of   Kaslo   creek.  Tho Cork mine on the South  Fork of Kaslo creek will resume  operations in a short time. The  bondholders of the Selkirk Mining  Co. are tak4ug over the   property.  The result ot development on tbe  Bed Elephant group on Hall Creek  lias been very encouraging according to reports brought down from  there by Hughie MacKay, part  owner of the property. The work  this season has besn confined mostly to open cutting and demonstrated that there is plenty of gold bearing rock on the property. In all  of the ore taken out this summer  native gold can be easily seen and  assay averages over 12 feet give  something over $17 to the ton in  yellow motal. Mr. McKay is having a considerable quantity of specimens brought down for exhibition  purposes and it is expected to ar-  rivo in Kaslo shortly. The need of  . such a large gold proposition as the  Red Elephant is transportation.  There is not much improvement in  this respect over a few years ago.  It is true that a splendid trail on  a wagon road grade extends from  Hall creek's junction with the Upper Duncan to the basin in whioh  tho lied Elephant, Bannockburn,  Wagner, and other big prospects  of the Upper Duncan are situated.  But this is by no means all that is  required. Tbe trail between Haly  landing and Hall creek is an early  day one and practically in an impassable condition for pack animals  With a good trail over this section  of the route supplies could be packed in and there is a possibility that  oro could be brought down. In  fact, according to Mr MacKay, it  is intended to pack ore down to  Haly's landing and from there by  barges down the Duncan river and  over Howser lake to Lardo. The  value of the rock is believed to be  high enough to stand even this  heavy transportation charge and a  few shipments would do much to  secure better facilities. Another  thing.badly needed'in the opinion  of those interested in that section  is the continuation of the Dominion  government work of clearing the  snags out of the Duncan to Haly's  landing. This would result in  making the river navigable for a  distance of several miles and would  enable small steamers to ply from  Lardo to the upper river point, and  make it possible for the claims to  ship ore at a   profit.��������� Kootenaian.  THE PEACE RIVER  A big party of prospectors has  made its way through the Rockies  by way of the Yellowhead Pass,  and they are understood to have  searched with the scrutiny of a  line tooth-comb for evidences of the  mineral wealth supposed to lie  within the Rockies at the Yellow-  head.  They have made their way thru  them, and now look for treasures  they hope to find on the prairies  which unfold from the foothills out  of the mountains. They believe  the Peace River country offers  great mineral opportunities. One  of the prospectors said that. people  have not yet begun rightly to  understand what the Peaco River  country really means.  Gold has been found in it. The  party of prospectors now coming  out of the mountains expect to find  more gold in it. The prospector  a graduate of McGill, and a plodder of silent places for ton years,  believes gold will be found there in  richly paying quantities.  Gold is not the only motal hoped  to be found in the north country.  Gypsum has been found near Dun-  vegan. An English syndicate hot  a piece of gypsum land near there  for a big sum, some hundreds of  thousands, a year or so ago. Mica  has been found in the mountains  and more of it is looked for on the  plateau prairies of the Peace. It  is not thought that there is much  coal in the country, but copper,  silver and lead are expected to  to show up. Some day the rarity  of a tin mine in the vicinity of tho  RockioH will be unearthed.
