Last week George Gaw was  forced to jump from a burning  car on the Kettle Valley railway.

At Pinochle Point on the West  Fork of Kettle river, James Blak-  more was killed last Saturday by  a tree falling on him. He lived  less than five hours after the accident.

In Victoria Frank Watorton  was fined glO for carrying concealed weapons, and- his gun was  confiscated.  It is rumored that 6,000 Douk-  hobors will settle on Anarchist  mountain, a few miles west* of  Greenwood.  Joe Lamb the well-known Yukon  guide and prospector, was drowned  in lake Kluane a few days ago by  the upsetting of a canoe.  The Triangle ranch of 11,000  acres in the Nicola Valley has been  sold for $200,000. Included in the  deal were 50 horses, and 1,700 head  of cattle.  Every evening 9,000 pounds of  milk and sweet cream is shipped  from the Eden Bank creamery at  Sardis to Vancouver.  A black bear recently visited a  ranch near Canyon City and ate  three pounds of butter and two  jars of preserved berries that he  found in a refrigerator.  There was a hot time in Ashcroft last Thursday in which W.  H. DockBtader of Midway took a  hand.   A dozen railway men filled  with liquid disturbance attempted  to capture the town.    The Journal  says that towards six o'clock they  went into the Ashcroft bar "and  owing to their condition, were refused   drinks.    One' husky fellow  used strong language   and   upon  being told to make himself scarce,  picked up a cuspidor   (weighing  about 12 pounds) and whirled it at  the boys behind the counter. Then  he threw a second one of the same *  size and weight,   but neither hit  their mark.    It was then up to the  hotel boys to turn them out, which  they proceeded to do, and rough  house began.   The gang bunched  out into the street and commenced  throwing stones, some oi them hitting the building and a few crash-"  ing through the barroom windows.  Four stones reached the plate glass  mirror behind the bar and completely   wrecked it, together with  a number of glasses standing on the  shelf below.    The mirror will cost  at least $250 to replace and altogether there must have been well  over $300 worth of damage done.  About this time Chief Constable  Burr and Constable Dockstader arrived on the scene.    Joe collared  one   fellow   and   took . him   off.  Dockstader chased another and,a  third took four of the local boys to  hold him.    Joe got back and upon  his   going*   after another   of the  gang   with   Dockstader was   met  witha   couple    of   rocks,    which  though well aimed Joe was able to  dodge.   In all five   were caught  and some were taken to the. jail  in a rig, which was requisitioned  as a patrol wagon.    And before the  court was concluded on   Friday,  four more drunks and disorderlies  were under lock and key.  The worst of the bunch were  given three and six months in jail  at hard labor.

Perhaps the Court of L-ast Appeal  Won't blame it on the Engineer.  L\- Paris this month John W.  Gates died worth $50,000,000 without ever having enjoyed the pleasure of reading Greenwood's leading  excitement. However he can probably get an asbestos copy of it in  the future.        The other day Templeman said  that the -very heavens were full of  Liberals. Does Bill mean that they  are all dead, or was ho looking the  wrong way, and thought that the  bright light was above, instead of  in tho opposite direction?  Ix spite of howls of pessimists  the B. C. Copper Co., still has coke  do burn, and its big stack has not  quit smoking.    This has   been   a  trying summer  for the officers of  the Greenwood smelter,  and they i  deserve considerable credit for the  able manner in which they have  kept   our greatest   industry from  falling into the arms of Morpheus.  In a comparatively short time  25,000 farmers have gone from  Iowa and Nebraska to Canada,  taking with them more than 21  millions of dollars, ancl from other  states of the Union hundreds of  thousands of farmers have migrated into Canada taking with  them many millions of dollars  worth of stock, implements and  household effects. Why is it that  these skilled farmers, who have  had the market of 90 millions open  to them are leaving their own  country, changing their allegiance  and undergoing all the heartbreaks  and hardships inseparable from  founding new homes in a strange  country? The above proves that  all sane Canadians will not tear  down the line fence.  ��������� ���������   BLAME THE ENGINEER  Iii America the people are crazy  for speed and that is one reason why  we have so many horrible railway  accidents. The owners of railroads  are mad with the greed for dividends, and that is another reason  for railway wrecks. The engineers  must drive their trains whether  they are physically fit or otherwise,  and that is another reason for  wrecks. We have ridden on the  front end of many a fast train and  know tho terrible strain engineers  aro subjected to. It is surprising  to us that so few accidents occur.  The following from Life is apropos:  A lurch that flings the rushing train,  A roaring* shock that rips and rends,  The groan.of death, the shriek of pain,  And���������Holy, Holy Dividends!  * The Engineer?   Poor chap, he's killed,  That makes the explanation clear,  A trusted servant, tried and skilled,  We'll blame it on the Engineer.  "Too bad; he served us fairly well,  Of course we gave him ample pay  And worked him through this torrid  spell  Not more than sixteen hours a day.  "His train was late, it seems agreed;  He disobeyed commands   we  fear.  And tore ahead at reckless speed;  Let's blame it on the Engineer."  Some day, some day, the Truth may  leap  In lines of flame across the blue.  Industry's Mortal Foe  What is the goal towards which  [the trusts and trades-unions are  tending with their strenuous efforts  to destroy competition? The only  way to answer this question is to  consider what competition has done  for the world; and what competition has done for the world in  simply everything.  Prior to the dawn of life, progress consisted of a fierce battle of  the elements. Wind warring with  wave, centrifugal with centripetal,  heat against gravity, ��������� integration  with disintegration���������out of all  these came the planet itself, its  seismic throes, mountains and  plains, rivers ancl seas, gulf stream  and tidal ebb ancl flow, changing  seasons, night and morning, and  God saw that it was good.  With the advent of life, the  actors only changed; the plot was  Uhe'same. All that has been done  [came thru struggle. All that  can do anything has been built up  thru struggle,, which' alone gives  strength. In the fight is developed  valor, in the battle of ten for the  subsistence and opportunities that  suffice for only five, are the strong  made strong, are the weak and inefficient eliminated. Do we want  ease? The only path thither lies  over the rough rocks of acquisition  and denial. Do we want eminence?  The price is beating down opposition, climbing the ladder, storming  the heights. Dp we covet character? Only thru temptation comes  strength; thru pain, endurance;  thru suffering, patience.  What gave   New   England  its  leadership in   American   achievement but its fierce Winters and  stony soil and enforced vigilance  against King and savage?* What  made  Germany the first military  power of the globe but the perpetual menace of armed and sleepless  foes?   What made England great  at sea but the hostile fleets that  menaced her isolated island's safe  existence?   What   has   given   us  modern   electrical   appliances   of  power and light but the pressure of  competing interests upon inventors?  What but   the   fierce   rivalry   of  opposing camps has" perfected telegraphy, and steel manufacture, and  coal production,  and gold-mining  processes,  the texture of fabrics,  the attractiveness  of   our  newspapers, the appointment of trains  and   steamships,  the convenience  and  endurance of our buildings,  the excellence of the very clothes  we wear and the food we eat?  . Blind to Nature's way,  we are  dissatisfied and will improve upon  her.   Is one man more expert than  another?   Then he shall join the  union, do no more work than his  lazy mate, and earn no more pay.  Is one factory better equipped than  another?   Then it shall run fewer  hours or close tip altogether.   Fj*is  one railroad a shorter line than its  rival?   Then it shall run on slower  schedule.   Is one superintendent  more deft than another in dealing  with his men?   Then he shall deliver his authority over to an Employer's Association, that all may  share alike.   Then rain shall fall  on tbe just as heavily as on the un  just, and they who work all day in  the vineyard and they who straggle  in at the eleventh hour shall receive  likewise every man a penny.  Socialism is in the air. It has  conquered tho ranks of labor ancl  permeated the schools of learning  and now it marches on tlie erstwhile citadel of individualism, the  clear-eyed and iron-hearted band  of the great captains of industry.  Tho brawney organizers of finance,  trade and manufacture, who have  denounced trades-unionism and  scoffed at tlie sentimental utterances of pulpit as fiction and'ped-  agog���������these, at last, are tired of  competition, and set themselves to  kicking down the ladder on which  all achievement, rung by rung, in  pain and loss and strife, has come  up.  They may not succeed; but if  thoy succeed they will fail, and iu  the crash of that failure will go  down the most colossal ruin of  human history. One civilization  aftor another has failed���������Eygpt,  Nineveh, Babylon, Carthago,  Greece, Rome���������ancl this great  Teutonic-Celtic fabric of mechanical industry may crumble to the  dust as prone as any. In the day  that the competitive system is  thrown away, our doom is sealed.  Without incentive, ambition will  die away. Without rivalry, exertion loses its point. Without competition, improvement, becomes  needless and impossible. Without  struggle, the very faculties  atrophy, purpose flags, nerve fails  aud muscles are enfeebled with  disuse.  When our ���������'harmonizations" become complete, nobody will need  to build new railroads, or improve  facilities, or invent new machinery  or study economy, or reward exceptional' fidelity or energy. We  shall fall to a dead level of mediocrity, stagnation, and then decay.  The agencies that have built us up.  will be destroyed, the props will be  withdrawn. Tho great machine  will revolve awhile on its own accumulated momentum, ancl then  it will stop. And upon the ruins  of what is left the survivors will  erect another system, still imperfect  no doubt, but purged of this insidious error of Socialism. Thru some  such dread experience as this we  may have to pass, for Nature will  make her lessons understood, at  what ever cost is necessary to those  who would set her at defiance.  The process of creation is not to be  reversed because some of the" participants are tired of the struggle.  HARVEY SCOTT.  The Cold Truth  There is always a rising generation. There is always a youthful  world. The aged are mowed down  and sealed up in clay, but above  the mound thero tramp forever and  for ever the battalions of youth.  The spirit of youth is as immortal  as death.  The world is no older than its  rising generation. In the seasonal  changes which wo register on our  calenders, Winter presses fast upon  the footsteps of Spring; but in the  process of-human life the method is  reversed; Spring���������which is youth  with its seeding-timo in brain and  heart, its rebellions and verile dissents���������presses forever on the footsteps of Winter���������which is age,  fallow in brain and heart, with its  ossi fied instincts, in deadening conservatism, its giy philistinism, its  decrepit conformity.  But youth and age are not always a matter  of  years.     Some  minds are born  with   the  crow's-  feet and the wrinkles of a   sapless  conservatism   chiseled     on   their  every move and opinion.. They are  spiritually dead   before  they  are  born.   They are creatures   of   reflex action.    Their religion,  philosophy and manner of life they accept from their elders (their elders  in death) with the meekness   with  which a dog laps food   from   your  hand.   They are incapablejof character.    They never question. They  lie frozen in the  currents  of  the  past.    Flexibility, elasticity, revolution, the daring No ! that   sends  some ancient   lio   a-crumbling   in  the,mind, the flaming  anger   that  hurls its shoulder against the door  of some  forbidden   room  in   the  House of Life and sonds it  crashing to the floor from off its  rotten  hinges���������these things, with their..obscure pains and lightning-shod triumphs, these unconscious enemies  of movement never know.  But the Spirit of Youth lasta  with some thru a lifetime. They  are tho spirits who come to destroy  Without destruction wo could   not  move. Destruction is more important than building. Growth is organic, unconscious, unintelligent.  But destruction always presupposes  initiative, intelligence, anger, virility and moral fibre. Nature knows  how to heal. But in tho intelligence and moral rage there lie the  seeds of destruction. And they are  ever young who question, combat  and give battle to the Past, to that  Past which reaches its fleshless fingers from out of its countless graves  and at the very cradle seeks to  strangle dissent and change.  It is to the rising generation that  the world must always look to be  saved from itself, for out of those  ranks of youth���������youth, which is  the eternal renascence of revolt-  come the-slayers of dragons, the  fowlers of the bats of superstitution  that prey on the human soul, the  accoutered warriors who have forever iu the past and will, in all  times to come draw the sword of  death against Authority, the sacrosanct, ancl tho creeds sputtering  complacently in their seraphic  grease.  The appeal to Youth is the appeal  of the Spirit of Emancipation to  the seed of future civilizations; it is  the cry of the maimed aud tho  crippled individuality of man to  the Siegfrieds of the mind to come  forth and sound the clarions of defiance before the moats and walls  aiid vitrified ramparts of human  passivity. The brain of youth is  the menstruum of authority. It is  for that reason that the organized  superstitions of the world have  always sought to keep the education of the child under their own  surveillance. None knows better  than they the terrible possibilities  of a new idea in a new brain; none  knows better than these fat shepherds the value of early mental  mutilation, of shaping the wax in  the image of old things.  There is no crime like the forcible supression of a soul; there is  no sin comparable to the choking  of ideas in a young;mind. Youth  always feels its instincts and dreams  and thoughts to be right, and' the  solemn dissent of Authority to be  wrong. O youth, fear not your inmost thought! That inmost thought  tho it threatens all the spires and  parliaments and bibles in the world,  is your great Self, the substance of  your character, in comparison with  which all other things are shadows  and shams and decoys.  All greatness is unique; all greatness hews out new paths; all greatness is stoned; all greatness  carries a brand on its forehead and  lives in the shadow of Golgotha.  They passed the hemlock to  Socrates because he said something  too beautiful for throned Stupidity  to comprehend; they burned Bruno  because he taught the sublime doctrine that God was the soul of the  ant as well as of the star; they  threatened Galileo because he said  the earth moved around the sun;  they expelled the young Shelly from  Oxford because he ridiculed the old  Hebraic God with his pharmacopoeia of unthinkable deviltries���������  Shelly, the heaven-cleaving poet,  whose mind was anointed with the  unguents of fairest dreams, whose  soul swam in the chrism of human  love. These were some youths who  dared. They are a few only of the  eagles of the rising generations  long ago gone to dust and worms;  but they dared, and in that dare  was folded the seed of their immortality. HUBBARD.  H. W.

It is stated that the Canadian  Pacific  Eailway  is   preparing   to  market immense shipments of coal  in the United States in the near  future.   The O.P.E. is expending  huge sums of money in rushing to  completion   extensions   from   the  Pacific Coast and   the  Northern  boundary of the United States to  its productive coal deposits in the  Rocky   Mountains.   The   C.P.R.  lines already come within striking  distance of the international boundary at several points and with the  other extensions that are now being  built   the   Rocky   Monntain coal  mines will be in active competition  with United States mines for the  trade of the   Pacific  Northwest.  An idea of the enormous expenditure involved in the expenditure  of these new western lines by the  C.P.R. can bo had from the statement that altogether construction  work is being gone on with over  1,000 miles of new line.    Most of  theso extensions are being built as  feeders from the-country north of  or parallel to the line, but there  are also a goodly number of miles  of track which is stretching down  towards the boundary  line, and  they afford excellent opportunities  for the building up by the C.P.R.  of a flourishing trade in Canadian  Rocky   Mountain  coal   with  the  United States.

Several years ago in a stage
battle. The gnus were'loaded by
mistake with real bullets���but it
is a long story. Mr. Gil more has
recovered and' will appear here
Friday' in his big revival of his
great New York and London success, "The Mummy and the Humming Bird," an English society
comedy - drama. The play that
made him a star and has been
played continuously for ten years,
and will continue for ages to come.
Why does Mr. Gilmore play at this
time of the year? * The answer is
that he-is making a tour around
the world, playing winter ancl
summer���playing every city in his
path. Tlie revival of the play
which was first produced by Sir
Charles Wyndham in London has
been such a success that it has enabled Mr. Gilmore to make this
extended tour. You have had a
rest from things theatrical and it
will be a long time '"between
drinks" or before you will see another such play as this. The management of your theatre guarantees
this attraction.
The contest among . Western
cities as to which will secure the
proposed new shops of the Canadian Pacific Railways still goes
merrily on. The C.P.R. is being
beseiged with letters and telegrams from parties interested
and there is much rivalry among
various ceutres as'to which will
land the coveted - shops. No
sooner does one municipality come
up with a big offer than its nearest competiton goes it one better
and so the bidding is quite brisk.
Yesterday' local 'officials were
approached to see-if they could
give any information that would
allay the suspense but they had
nothing to make public other
than that the matter was under
consideration and that a decision
would soon be rendered.
From this distance it looks as
though the matter rested between
Calgary and Medicine Hat. The
cities of Port Arthur and Fort
William made a joint bid for the
shops, but Sirt William Whyte,
the Vice-President of the C.P.R.
states that it would be impossible
to make advantageous-use of a
location east of Alberta, as by
the time the shops are built-the
company will have ready for them
about 800 locomotives in its territory between the mountains and
the western Manitoba bouudary.
Sir William did not turn the Lake
Superior cities down without a
ray ot hope however, as he stated
that he considered the company's
terminal point at the head of the
lakes an ideal spot for car building shops, and intimated that the
company might soon be open to
discuss the idea of locating car
works there.
With Port Arthur ' and Fort
William out of running either
Calgary or Medicine Hat will
probably get the shops, Bassano
had hopes that their bait of
cheap water-power might prove
effective, but the C.P.R. will
probably want to locatej in one
of the larger centres.

American Depression
While Canadian railway earnings
are piling np American railways
are presenting their shareholders
with poor statements and preaching the gospel of economy and
caution. While Canadian factories have more orders than they can
fill, American factories are closed
or running on short time. Tens of
thousands of United States farms
have been abandoned as unprofitable. From ocean to ocean Canada represents a progressive panorama of the most pronounced
prosperity ever enjoyed by an
country. Is it not important,
therefore, that we keep the waves of
American depression from flooding
the Dominion?
Needless lo say Americans expect that reciprocity will help them
towards renewed prosperity. One
of their troubles is the partial exhaustion of their own natural resources and they hope to , build
anew once they gain control of
Canada's vast store of raw materials. They also look to see free
trade in natural products extended
shortly to manufactures and that
would of course give then industrial trusts the free run of Canada's
growing markets and the opportunity they so much desire of crushing
the far loss powerful manufacturers
of this country.
A skirt divided agains itself cannot hobble.

From the indications in the Argo  tunnel this week it looks as though  a large body of ore would be struck  in a few days.  So far this year the Greenwood  smelter has treated -100,000 tons of  ore.  Up to date this year the Granby  smelter has,treated 577.791 tons of  ore.  Phoenix still has a payroll.  There are 150 men at the Rawhido  and 50 iu tho Wellington camp.  E.. G. "Warren of the B. C.  Copper says: '^We hive no intention of shutting down. At the outset the management decided to  keep its forces together even if  certain sacrifices were involved.  Wo are using Pennsylvania coke,  which of course cannot be laid  down in the Boundary at the same  rate as the Crow's Nest article.  At this moment we have 10,000  tons of Pennsylvania coke in transit. Our mines are also shipping  their usual tonnage."  J. M. Blood and Grant Ickle-  rath of Republic, havo leased the  Big Copper mine, in Copper camp  for fifteen months. This property  lias not been worked for several  years, and is owned by John  Moran, S. W. McMichael and Mrs.  George B. McAulay. It is about  six miles from Greenwood, and a  little over three miles from the  railway spur to the Mother Lode  mine. After freight and treatment  are paid the lessees will receive  S5 per cent, of the balance obtained  for the ore. Work began at the  property on Tuesday.  B. C, MINING NEWS  The Merritt gypsum mine is  shipping a carload daily.  On Kruger mountain, on the  west side of Osooyoos lake, copper  ore has been struck in the Forty-  ninth Parallel mine.  The western branch of the Canadian Mining Institute will meet  this year at "New Denver, on September 13.  This summer there is considerable prospecting on the west shore  of Christina lake.  Good progress is being made at  the milling plant at the Inland  Empire mine, Rossland. The  building is up," and the machinery  is being installed. A large tonnage of ore is being blocked out.  While, the company flotations  and operations in the vicinity of  Lillooot do not appear to have  been successful, thero havo been a  number of smaller properties in the  Bridge river section which have  managed to do devolopemont and  pay expenses, even, whon run practically without initial capital and  with the most primitive appliances;  these wero opened up by working  partnerships- and the plants consisted of home-made arrastras,  of the trail between the* Meadows  and Squamish, immediately north  of Green lake, and in the Lillooet  mining division,  several   mineral  claims have been staked. on a deposit of bog iron ore; one of -these  is the Iron  Mask,  but the other  claim names could  not be distinguished on the posts.   This deposit  extends over a considerable area,  and has been slightly prospected  on the surface by a number   of  open cuts, the largest of which is  about twenty feet long aud has developed ore to a depth of from two  to three foet.    A sample taken of  the ore exposed in  tho cut gave,  upon assay: iron, 48 per cent; silica, 2.2 per cent; sulphur, 0.2 per  cent;   phosphorus,  0.1   per   cent.  The area over which iron is found  is considerable, but the work done  is insufficient to demonstrate the  depth  of the deposit, and, consequently, its size.     The deposit is  at present commercially inaccessible, but it is directly on the surveyed lino of a proposed railway  between Pemberton and Squamish  Meadows.  Kamloops Camp. ��������� During the  year 1910 development of the different zones has- produced very  favorable results.

Offer--  Photo bjr Not*-n������n, MaotreM  SIR WILLIAM VAN HORNE  The Builder of the Canadian Pacific.  Sir William Van Home, Chairman of tho Board of Directors of the Canadian  Pacific It. It., is tho most versatile man in_Canada. .Ho is a railroad builder who  defied obstacles that would havo daunted.most able men: ho is a collector of paintings and is a painter of ability; ho is a deep'student ancl a pleasing talker; he is a  successful amateur farmer; ho is the head and prime mover in dozens of big enterprises which he handles simultaneously with tho easo of a Japanese juggler tossing  balls into the air; and ho is invading Cuba and Guatemala with the great advance-  agent of civilization���������railways.  Ho was born near Joliot, 111., in 1843, a lineal descendant of ono of tho Dutch  founders of New Amsterdam, tho germ from which the great city of New York has  evolved. At fourteen the death of his father made it necessary for him to secure  the living tho world owes to overyono who works day and night to collect the debt.  He was fii-st telegraph operator on tho Illinois' Central, then went into thc servico  of tho Michigan Central whero he remained six years, leaving to be train dispatcher  of the Alton, there rising successively to tho position of superintendent of telegraph  and divisional superintendent. He afterward occupied managing positions on tho  St. Louis, Kansas City and Northern, Southern Minnesota, Chicago and Alton,  and Chicago, Mihvaukeo and St. Paul Railways, going from the latter to the Canadian Pacific as general manager.  Tho inception of this, ono of tho world's greatest railway systems, was duo  to tho patriotism, courage and enterprise of Lords Mount Stephen and Strathcona  and other capitalists; but tho virtual building of the road and putting into tho  completed work tho soul of a mighty purpose, tho boundless energy, vitality and  brain that havo made it what it is, was the work of Sir William Van Home. In  1884 he became vice-president of tho road and four years later was made president  His splendid organizing ability, his mastery of detail, his infinite resourcefulness,  his conquest of obstacles���������all find their lasting monument in this splendid work,  He has tho visions into tho future that distinguish all great leaders; he sees the oak.,  in the acorn, ho sees in imagination the busy town with its teeming population,'  whero other men sco only a possible good sito for a town. For him to see a need,  is to plan; for him to plan, is to execute.     , ',  * In 1894, Queen Victoria, recognizing tho marvelous impetus he had given to  Canada, conferred on him nn honorary knighthood, which he modestly accepted  as a tribute to his railroad, and has since carried his honors with tho simplicity,  grace and dignity of a largo-minded, broad-gauge man.
