FINE BOATS  Victoria people are well pleased  with the "Princess Alice," the  latest addition to the Canadian  Pacific Railway's Pacific coast  steamship service. The Alice ar- /"  rived at Victoria a week or ten  days ago from Great Britain and  is now undergoing extensive repairs ijhere before taking up its  regular service. Several Victoria  papers say that the boat is the  finest that the Canadian Pacific ���������'  Railway has yet had built for the  Pacific coast.  The next boat to be brought to  the Pacific ooast by the Canadian  Pacific Railway is ,the "Queen  Alexandra," ;which will probably  leave for its long trip round Cape  Horn within the next two,or three  weeks.

It believes  in justice to everyone ; from the man who mucks in the mine to the  king who sits on the cushions of the throne. It believes that advertising is the life of trade; and that one of the noblest works of  creation is the man who always pays the printer.  The Ledge is $3.00 a year in advance, or $2.50 when not so paid.  It is postage free to all parts of Canada, Mexico, Great Britain and  the county of Bruce.

Tim west is   full of tenderfp.et  who   are   always   kicking   about  what thoy can buy goods for in the  east.    At the same time they want  the highest price for anything thoy  have to sell,   be it labor or merchandise.    This shows that such  people are too selfish  to be well  balanced.    The    Hedley    Gazette  touches up some of these ginks in  the following manner:  "Isn't it funny that a rancher who gets here in B. C three  times as much as he could get  iu Ontario or Nova Scotia for  a dozen  of eggs,  a pound of  butter, a bushel of potatoes or  a box of apples or plums and  wants besides  5 or 10 cents  more than the top notch price  that things are selling at, will  kick at giving $2.00 a year for  the local paper because he used  to "get the local paper back  home   for   a   dollar?"    That  kind of a settler for B. C. is  the kind we would all be happy  to do without and real estate  boosters will confer a favor on  everybody concerned  if they  will leave them  sitting right  where they are instead of trying to induce them to come to  B. C."  money or a kiss from tho hired  girl. All of which proves that you  can train a fool to believe in anything, provided you catch him  when his brain is young and mushy,  Tub authorities recently cancelled    Henry   Stege's   hotel   liquor  license in New Denver, because he  got drunk too often it is  reported.  Henry has got nearly everybody  around the Lucerne to sign a petition asking for a new license.    He  declares that if he is again granted  a license he will never take another drink.    That being the case  the government should encourage  temperance   by   giving Henry   a  chance to be good.    By setting a  gosd example Henry might induce  all his customers to forsake booze  for the beverages that are soft and  devoid of a managerie.    It might  into the United States during 1910.  Nine   hundred    and    forty-three  thousand cords of pulpwood (sixty  per   cent,   of the   total  Canadian  pulp-log cut)   worth   six  million,  two   hundred ancl  ten   thousand  dollars,   were shipped  across the  border in   a raw   state,   without  undergoing any form of manufacture.    This pulpwood oxport was  cut from the various provinces in  the following amounts and values:  779,000   cords   worth   85,090,000  from  the timber limits of Quebec;  90,000 cords worth $047,000 from  New Brunswick and  74,000  cords  worth $474,000 from  Ontario.    It  is interesting to note to what extent    provincial   industry   would  havo been increased if the pulpwood exportod to the United States  had been converted into  woodpulp  on    Canadian    soil.     Tho   seven  hundred and seventy-nine thousand  cords exported from Quebec Avould  have supplied material for a year  to fifty-six pulpmills of tho average  size    operating    in    Quebec.   In  [Ontario, five mills of. tho  average  size could have been kept  running  with the pulp logs exported  from  this province.    The ninety thousand cords  shipped  from tho ports  of New Brunswick would have produced the most startling results if  the amount had been domestically  manufactured    into    pulp.      The  amount exported was sufficient to  supply with wood twenty-four mills  of the average size,   with the result that live times the number of  mills operating, would  have been  at   work   if   Canadians   in   New  Brunswick   had   been   far-seeing  enough to manufacture their own  raw products.  because you are not the sons of  millionaires. Millionaires' sons as  a'rule don't average very high. But  when one of them does it's a fine  thing to see.  Before getting down to the tale  of his own first jobs Mr. Carnegie  said that in looking over a list of  great men'recently who had done  big things he selected twenty of  them, and not one of the twenty  was born of wealthy parents.  Then he said he had intended to  tell the "boys" he had expected to  find first to avoid alcohol.  "There are other things too not  wicked but just foolish," continued  Mr. Carnegie, "Why there are  actually young men who draw  tobacco smoke into their mouths  and then puff it out. Think of itl  For heaven's sake don't be so  foolish.  "I've been asked to tell my own  experiences," said tho ironmaster,  after he had dwelt upon the necessity of living within one's income.  "Well, tolling of one's own experience must be done with circumspection."    (Laughter.)  "You  needn't tell all  your ex-  New York,   were the guests last  be better for tho public if the law night of the two hundred or so  compelled   all   men   behind    the  mahoghany to stay on  top of tho  water wagon.  Carnegie's Life Story  Andrew Carnegie and  President  Finley of the College of the City of lyn~asked "^ uucle if ne knew of  perionces," suggested Mr. Rockefeller. "We'll absolve you in advance if you hold back somo of  them."  "That's all I want, a Rockefeller absolution," cried Carnegie.  "If any request of a Rockefeller  doesn't go up above there'll be an  awful row up there.''   (Laughter.)  "I don't know whether that's a  compliment or not," laughed young  Mr. Rockefeller.  "When I was a boy in Pittsburg I began by working in a cotton factory," Mr. Carnegie went  on. "Manager Brooks, of the  Western Union office there���������he's  the father of Mrs. Snow, of Brook  came in all right, but I had to confess, to Supt. Scott what I had  done. ." ,  "Say," j he said to Charley  Francesco the next day, 'do you  know what that little Scotch devil  done yesterday Charley? Damned  if ho didn't run all the trains!'  (Laughter.) Later the president  of the road, heard of it when he  came to town, and he said to me,  'Are you Scotch Andy who ran  the trains?' And he shook my  hand which was pretty good for a  president."    (Laughter)  Mr.    Carnegie then told briefly  of how he went to Washington at  the outbreak of the war to help  organize the telegaph signal corps.  After the war he and, his brother  went into the bridge building business.    With their first big bridge  contract also came a request  from  tho bridge owners  to try to negotiate $4,000,000 worth   of bridge  bonds for them.    He went to England and there got Junius Morgan,  father of J. Pierpont Morgan,  to  take over the bonds���������"and that  was my first financial experience,"  he concluded.  Early he had laid down his rule  of life���������that ho should try to earn  money up to a certain point, and  that his old age be spent, not in  accumulating, but in .distributing.  From the day he retired he stuck  to the rule in that he never' since  then, he said, has bought a share  of stock "and never will."  H. W.

J. R. CAMERON,  Leading Tailor of the Kootenays  KASLO,    B.   O.J  Last Friday in Greenwood, a  fly was seen dancing a horn-pipe  upon top of some boarding house  butter. This is a signQof an early  spring.  TriE recent civic election in Nelson proves that the old-timers have  had their day, and will have to sit  down and watch the tenderfeet  drive the municipal wagon.  Show us a town in which the  majority of the business men do  not advertise in the local paper,  and wo will show you a town that  is not marked in red on any map.  Turns are picking up in Sandon,  and an ace in the hole is now  quoted at four-bits in the snow-  slide city. In the flush days of  '97 when the streets were watered  witli whiskey, and paved with  playing cards, an ace in the hole  was sometimes worth a thousand  toadskins.  What is old to ono is new to another. Many thousands have not  had the sad pleasure of seeing East  Lynne, or Uncle Tom's Cabin with  the real dogs chasing the heroine,  while Little Eva dies in the house,  and is wafted to heaven on wings  of angels to the tune of, "I Hear  Their Gentle Voices Calling."  Thinking Themes  Whatever you do, do not hesitate.  Hesitation is tragic. Hamlet,  the greatest of all tragedies, is the  picture of the hesitating soul. In  the palace of Fontainebleau is a  pathetic sight, which strikes the  beholder like a blow; it is a table,  full of little holes, where Napoleon  jabbed his knife as he sat before it,  hesitating to abdicate.  The Irish rule in a fight is to hit  first. It is instinct with philosophy. The bridge player who  tampers with his card before playing it has betrayed his hand.  Whatever is done at once, even if  it be wrong, has some merit. It is  largely a matter of habit. Dawdling with a decision grows on one.  By and by one gets into a state  where any responsibility for immediate action brings on chills and  fever. Life becomes entirely inefficient. One's spirit is always  shrinking and hiding. The will is  utterly limp.  One curative  reflection for tho  indecisive   is   that   no   ono   ever  knows    precisely   what   is   best.  Prompt and positive people know  no more than you,   see no more  clearly.    Thoy are possibly wrong  in  what they do as often as you.  But they save themselves a world  of self-torture by doing something  at once.    Think tw/ce before you  speak  is an excellent  maxim   if  taken   literally,   that is: do   not  think moro than  twice.    Balance  the probabilities the best you can,  make your decision as honestly as  you can.    No one but God knows,  a.nyhow, what will be the full consequences.���������Dr. Frank Crane.  Tun power of early training is  truly wonderful. There are men  in this country who will steal,  swear, get drunk and fight, but  they will not whistle, cut wood, or  hit a drill upon Sunday for love,  men who compose the Bible class  presided over by John D, Rockefeller, jr., at the Fifth Avenue  Baptist Church on the first Sunday of each month and by tho  Rev. Dr. Addison Moore���������mighty  fisherman of the Maine woods in  vacation moments���������on .the other  Sundays of the month, says the  New York Sun of recent date.  There were Scotch songs by Miss  Edith   Magee,   with    Dr.   Harry  Rowe Shelly,  the organist,   to accompany Miss Magee on the piano.  And there were happy speeches by  Mr. Carnegie and President Finley  that put everybody in good humor.  The meeting was held in the lecture  room  of the church   at S   West  Forty-sixth Street.  x Hunter Marston,   chairman   of  the entertainment committee of the  class, said that he had thought of  presenting   Mr.   Carnegie   merely  with the words "Andrew Carnegie,  'null   said."    but   the chairman  elaborated for a sentence to say  that the ironmaster's life is  "an  example   an  inspiration  to every  American young man."  "Lady and  gentleman,"  began  Mr. Carnegie���������the lone lady being  Miss Magee-when   the long applause that greeted him had died  down,    "I'm a victim tonight of  misplaced  circumstances.

(Laughter.)   I   see   men  here that part their hair in the  middle  even   wider   than   I  do.  (Laughter)  "I had pictured a class of youths  in their teens who looked up to  young Mr. Rockefeller as an old  man, and I had intended to tell  these young men my ideas of how  they should start in life.    (Laughter.)   I had intended to  contrast  the lives of professional men whose  aims aro higher than mere dollars.

My    uncle   told  Mr.  Brooks about me and  uncle and I  went over to the telegraph office.  "When we got to the building I  said, 'Now uncle, I'm going to do  this myself.    You stay outside and  I'll go in and get the job alone.  I got it.    The pay  was $2.50   a  week.    My   father    and   mother  thought   this     was   too     much.  (Laughter)   And   after  a   while  Mr. Brooks said to me���������I was now  the oldest messenger boy there���������  <A-Hdy> you're a better boy than  the others.    Your   pay is raised  from $11.50 a month to $13.50.  "I wondered what I was going  to do with  the surplus.    (Laughter.)    My, I was proud that day.  I remember well that I ran all the  way across the bridge���������I lived in  Allegheny then���������and that I picked out the roadway of the bridge  so that my speed wouldn't be im  peded by pedestrians.

Oh,    LordI   I'll  never forget that happy moment."  Mr. Carnegie here related  how  whenever he had a telegram to deliver to Manager  Porter  of  the  theatre near by he would hold back  the message until after the curtain  had gone up so that he could see  the show.    Here he first learned  of Shakespeare and he told of how  he   had   memorized   passages of  Shakespeare which   he later,   he  said, "would throw off in conversation and my hearers thought the  words were original." (Laughter.)  His uncle told him that he had a  perfect right to repeat the word  hell in quoting Shakespeare.  "Then I became a telegraph operator at $25 a month," Mr. Carnegie said. "Next Supt. Scott, of  the Pennsylvania road, gave me a  job at $35 a month���������the best exhibition of the X raise I ever saw.  (Laughter.)

Whey they arrived, in the pocket  of the pants was found the following note:  "Should this fall into the hands  of a good looking young man who  desires to correspond with a young,  lady of sweet disposition, kindly  address," etc. Then the young  man promptly sent a letter to the  address and about 10 days later received this reply:  "Sir���������My wife has received a  letter from you addressed in her  maiden name. Twenty years ago,  when she worked in a factory, she  might have written the note. She'  is now a mother of eleven children  and is my lawful wife.

Touch the wire if  you want apartments reserved,  Manager  Boom In Copper  The higher price recently ruling  for copper, together with the improved outlook for that metal,  both in Europe and ..'the United  States, is believed .by those who  are taking most interest in the  mining-industry to be the forerunner of a,general revival in mining.' This opinion is frankly expressed by tho leading financial  journals of New York and it has  also been voiced by some of the  leading mining .operators in the  United States.  It is a significant fact in this  connection that both copper and  lead mines are in greater demand  than either has been ��������� for a long  time. ' The Amalgamated .Copper  company has been especially active  in acquiriug new properties in the  last 30 days,' both" in, the vicinity  of its main holdings in Montana  and in tho prophyry district of  Globe, Arizona. The same concern and tho United States Mining, Smelting and Refining company have shown ��������� an earnest desire to get possession of good lead  producing properties and it was recently stated by a big operator in  the Coeur d'Alenes that he had  never known a time whenjthere was  so many prospective buyers in the  market as at present.  The extent of the improvement  in the copper situation is manifest  when if is stated that the average  price of electrolytic copper during  1911 was $12.51. The lowest  average price' for any month was  $11.98 in May and the highest  average $13.78; in December. The  present market price of copper is  around $14.40.  The world's' stock of copper on  the first of the year was slightly  under 200,000,000 pounds, of which  les than one-half was in the United  States. This shows! a reduction in  stocks during the year of 86,000,-  000 pounds, or practically all the  available copper in the United  States today.  The prevailing price for copper  means, greatly enhanced earnings  for many Inland Empire mines,  notably Granby, B. 0. Copper,  Snowstorm, United Copper and all  the producing properties at Rossland.  ESTABLISHED 1817 >.  Capital, all paid up, $15,413,000.   Rest, $15,000,000.

Nopp's Prize Chickens  Chesaw, Wash., Jan. 10,���������A  telegram to the' Chesaw News from  Los Angeles, ,Cal., was received  this morning announcing the sale  of seven Black Orpington chickens  from Rosebud Poultry Farm, at  this place, for $1,100,' one cockerel  bringing $500 alone, and three  hens and three .pullets '$100 each.

T. J. Nopp, proprietor of Rosebud Farm at this place who raised  the birds, began to "take an interest" in chickens a few years  ago, and with the invalueablo aid  of an equally enthusiastic wife  gradually built up his business.  New blood was imported and they  pursued the even tenor of their way  regardless of the comments of the  public, many of the people declaring them more or less crazy.  They had won most of the prizes  and cups at the nearby shows, including Spokane, for the past two  years, and this spring have several  hundred birds of high quality to  open their season with,  Will Purdy, from Ferry, who  judged at a number of the Coast  shows this season, has been re-engaged to preside over three shows  for next season.  ' The birds exhibited and sold at  Los Angeles made the voyage  southward from Portland on the  ill fated steamer Reanoke. which  was badly raked by the combers on  the Columbia bar. The apartments in which the birds were  housed were wrecked and the  chickens were soaked in Pacific  brine, but apparently fared none  the worse for their dip.

I    BOUNDARY MINES    1  Last    week    the    Greenwood  smelter treated 9,744  tons of ore.  Last   week   the   Mother   Lode  mine shipped 7,774 tons of ore.  Last week the Emma mine shipped 429 tons of ore.  In Phoenix last week work was  resumed at the Gold Drop mine.  The lack of coke is delaying the  full operation of the Kawhide  mine. That property will be run  with a full;force when tho supply  of coke at the Greenwood smelter  becomes more satisfactory.  development work has been done  for some time. A stamp mill will  be erected on the Joker and a compressor put in.  I   B. C. MINING NEWS   I  The Slocan Star at Sandon will  soon be again on the shipping list.  Much new ground has been opened  up this winter.  In the Slocan it is rumored that  a merger will soon take place of  the Rambler-Cariboo, Extension,  Rio, Payne, Silver Bell, and other  properties on Payne mountain,  and in the McGuigan basin.  It is likely that the Lucky Jim  zinc mine of the Slocan will build  a smelter at Medicine Hat.  The Bluebird mine at Rossland  shipped a carload of ore to the  Trail smelter last week.  Owing to the starting of work at  the Fife mine, Charles Dempster  has postponed his trip to Califor  nia.  THElLAST RUSH  The recent discovery of placer  gold in paying quantities on a  tributary of the Sixtymile river  has caused the biggest stampede  known in the Dawson country for  many years. It is said that fifty  cent pans have been washed out.  A late Dawson paper says of the  strike and subsequent stampede :  "Stainpeders   continue   to   tear  away from the city to  the   new  strike on  the south fork  of  the  Sixtymile.    Some say that as many  as 100 men have gone.    Dogs of  all   kinds   have  been   impressed.  Some are no larger than  kittens.  Many of the stampeders are hiring  Indians.    Sam  Matheson is going  with the royalty.    Sam got away  today with Chief Isaac as chaf-  feur of one of tho swellest mush-  mobiles on the trail.   It is reported  that some of   the   mushers have  started  without blankets-    Major  Horrigan  of the R. N. W. M .P.,  announces that  ho   will   have   a  policeman at Indian who will see  that no men go into the country so  scantily provided for that they will  likely   become . charges   on    the  others.    Each   musher   is   taking  barely    enough    to    carry    him  through."  MISSIONS TO ADVANCE  The announcement from the  head office of tho Hedley Gold  Mining company in New York that  the dividend for the last quarter of  1911 is the usual quarterly dividend  of 3 per cent, with an extra dividend  of 7 per. cent, has even made  Hedleyites who have grown accustomed to the 5 per cont. quarterlies sit up. That, however, is  the dividend for the last quarter of  1911, and as the first three quarters have already accounted for  three five-per-centers, or fifteen per  cent, this last one of ten per cent,  marks a new notch, by making a  yearly dividend of 25 per cent.���������  Hedley Gazette.  Thomas G. Proctor of Nelson, for  many years interested in mining in  the Kootenay district, has opened  a branch office in Victoria, where  he is staying for part of the winter.  "At Popular Creek, two men  are working on the Golden Gate  group; and at last accounts were  in four feet of copper-gold ore;  this property is owned by the  Golden Gate Mining -Company of  Vancouver. The same company  has been testing the placer deposits on Poplar Creek during the  , last few months, and it is stated it  will sink a shaft to bedrock early  this year.  Not much work, outside of the  annual assessments required to  keep mineral claims in good standing, was done on the South Fork  of Kaslo Creek during 19J1.  Several    men    worked   on   the  Nome a few months, until  one of  owners,  Mr.   Ruggo,   was killed,  when operations were stopped, and  thoy were not afterwards resumed.  Early in  the year somo   work  was done on the Granite King, but  nothing has been done there since  March.   Two men are doing development  work  on   the   B.N.A.  claim.   Little else seems to  havo  been done during the season.  The several properties which  have been the larger prodecers  of ore in this camp in past years,  namely, the Cork, Province and  Montezuma, were inoperative  throughout 1911. Preparations  are beiug made, however, to resume work in the Cork next season, and the Joker, too, will be  given attention again. A lot of  ' machinery has been taken in for  ' use on these two mines, but little  A great impetus has been given  to mission work both at home and  abroad by the memorable conference held  in   Edinburgh   in   the  summer of 1910. Among the many  eminent men who took part in its  deliberations    were   Sir   Andrew  Fraser, Bishop Gore, now of Oxford;   and   Charles   Mott.     Most  amicable and satisfactory arrangements were made for dividing the  non-christian world among the denominations iu such a way that  there might be no infringing on  each others territory.   There was  felt to be need for this action, as,  apart altogether from the advantage  of harmony and co-operation,   the  field is so vast that even with  the  increased liberality which is looked  for,    the   best   statesmanship   of  Christian leaders will be needed to  overtake   the  work agreed   upon  by the conference.   The churches  of Canada were well represented  at Edinburgh and are making a  noble effort to respond to the call.  To the members and adherents of  the Presbyterian  church   in   this  dominion, in addition to the work  at  home,   has   been   assigned   a  heathen population of 14,000,000  souls, and they aro endeavoring to  raise $1,000,000 as the years contribution.    Christian business men  are at the head of this movement,  and regard  ic not only   for   the  glory of God and tho good of man,  but also as a sound  business project.    All congregations and  missions are asked  to contribute as  genorously   as   possible.     It   has  been proved over and over again  that weak fields, even  those that  require aid, are much stimulated  to help tnemselves by helping the  missionary enterprise,   which  has  for its object the speedy conversion of tho world.  the carrying of the Canadian Pacific Tracks and street railway tracks  and the lower deck for passanger  and    vehicular traffic.    John   B.  Gun  & Sons of   Winnipeg   were  awarded the contract for the substructure and commenced the work  of excavating the pier foundations,  in August 1910,    "When the river  was frozen over,  cofferdams  were  built,  and the two main piers in  mid   stream    were   raised   above  water   level   before the ice was  broken  up in the spring.    Night  and day shifts were employed in  order    to   accomplish    this   end.  Foundations for all the piers were  excavated last year aud  this year  the concrete work was commenced.  In   excavating   for the   largest  pier on the north side of the bridge  thousands of cubic   feet of earth  were removed.    It was necessary  to cut through a seam of coal seven  feet in thickness.   This coal  was  found to be of fairly good quality  and as excavated was used for fuel  for the engines operating the derricks. . The   thousands   of   cubic  yards of gravel used were dredged  from the river bed aud washed by  a plant located  at the scene   of  operation.   The   substructure   of  tho bridge was completed in  August of last year.  When completed the bridge will  be supported  by thirty-two piers  on pedestals.    There are four large  central piers 13Gfeet high.    The  central pier ares aro twenty feet  square at the base.    The  C.P.Ry.  will occupy the centre of the bridge  and   on either side will run the  streeii railway.    Forty feet below  of the tracks will be the  traffic  deck of the bridge with  a roadway  23 feet wide and  eight foot side  walk on each side.    As a result of  the   new   bridge the   Edmonton  street railway will save 400  miles  per day in the run between Edmonton and Strathcona, as the distance  saved between the two points by the  erection of the new bridge is  one  and one-eighth miles.

C As  Canada's Great Portrait Painter  ��������� The artist who was commissioned by tho Canadian Government to paint  the portraits of King Edward and Queen Alexandra for the Dominion House of  Parliament, and who was honored with sittings by their Majesties in tho early  part of this year, is John Colin Forbes who has a long trail of successes in his  sixty years.  Born in Toronto of Scotch-English parents, he was educated at Upper Canada  College in his native city, and at an early age showed the first faint dawnings  of his artistio genius. He was entirely self-taught, following with the sure instinct  of true power along tho lines of natural development, and silently working out  his own destiny until he produced his first real work, a portrait of his father.

In ISS1 he was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts and five years  later painted for the Canadian Pacific R.R. a series of'pictures which reproduced  some of the masterpieces of Nature's painting and sculpture in the wild, romantio  Canadian Rockies, whero Titanio mountains, deep gorges, great expanses of  scenery aro shown in a color scheme of Nature at Ker best.

Those who are familiar with his  paintings "The Cafion in the .Royal Gorge/' "The Mount of the Holy Cross,"  'Mount Stephen," and tho " Glacier of the Selkirks," must ever carry with them  the memory of their majestic beauty and power. In 1891 members of the Canadian Liberal party sent him to England to paint a full-length portrait of Gladstone for the National Liberal Club of London.
