Death of a Pioneer  - On Friday evening, at the Phoenix hospital, there died one of the  pioneers of the Boundary district  in the persan of Joseph Taylor,-  aged (50 years.  Deceased came to this district in  1SS9, and the first winter -lived in  a tent in AVellington camp. He  located some'of -the big properties  in Greenwood 'camp���������now Phoenix- among them the Stemwinder,  which be allowed to lapse. He  was associated with George AV.  Rumberger in a number of claims  in - Greenwood and AVellington  camps.  He served in the confederate  army during the civil war under  General Price as a cavalryman and  had the unique experience of only  having one mount, riding the same  horso during the war.  Joe was highly  respected  by all  the force of the attack,  by a series of somewhat vague and  unsatisfactory   explanations.     No  change for the better, however, appears to have taken place, and MY.  Pringle again reopens the question  with another strong letter in which  he reiterates, with righteous indignation,   his   protests against this  shameful state of affairs. He states  that.he is a Liberal and,is actuated  by no motives of" hostility against  the party in power, whose-political  faith is the same as his own. "Duty,  however, compels him to return to  the distasteful task of.laying bare  these offences against public morality and common  decency which  are perpetrated in such an unblushing manner under the sanction of  the Dominion  officials in .the far  north.  Speaking of Mr. Pringle's letter,  an eastern paper sets forth the  main points of his complaint as  follows:  '��������� He says that in Dawson, music  halls, or dance halls, may be, and  are, for the sum of $100" per year,  licensed to run in connection with  saloons, and they exist -"for the  purpose of bleeding our people, in  the interests of the scum, male and  female, of United States coast cities.    Incidentally,   they afford the  accounts of the secretary-treasurer  and make a report as to tho standing of the man in  whose custody  the   funds   of the federation  are  placed';  Again, the secretary-treasurer must submit to every local  union a quarterly  report showing  to the minutest detail the revenues  received from all the.local  unions  of the organization,   and  likewise  the   expenditures   and'   to   whom  paid.    The-secretary-treasurer can  pay no money, without  drawing a  check, and the stubs of the check  book will show to whom the mouey  has been-paid.    If Haywood paid  to Orchard various sums of money  at different times of which there is  no -record,   then it is a foregone  conclusion that big books and bank  account   will   not   balance.     The  books of the organization, showing  to the minutest detail revenues and  disbursements, will tear to pieces  the frame-up that has been  made  to order for Orchard's  recital before a jury.���������Moyie Leader.  Happening's       ������  the old-timers of the district. Although he made, considerable  money here, be was too free hearted  to.keep it, and died comparatively  poor.  The funeral took place in Phoenix Sunday afternoon. Services  were held in the Presbyterian  church, and nearly all the old-  tiiiirrs in .the district-were, present,.  Following were the pallbearers:  Thomas Kirk, Colville, AVash.;-  P. J. Dermody, J. AV. Nelson and  Thos. AValsh, Greenwood ; Adolph  Sercu, Phoenix, and John- Meyer,  Carson.  lowest form of entertainment, along  " Co-Operative Restaurant  Last week the Boundary Co-Operative association   was  formed in  Greenwood  to  enter  into the restaurant business.    The officers are  Frank   Steel,    president:   G.    AV.  Holt,  secretary-treasurer;  and  J.  Mathews,   T.   G.   Gould   and   F.  Griffin.    These will form the committee of   management.    The association has   taken over the old  Commercial hotel   and   opened a  restaurant, and take lodgers. This,  we believe, is the first co-operative  association formed in  the .Boundary, and is an  experiment which  will require time to prove its success   or   failure.    The   restaurant  business is one that requires  experienced   and   careful   handling,  and the boys have chosen the most  difficult of  all -the. businesses to  test the feasibility of co-operation,  and if they make a success of it  the greater credit will be due them.  Already they have quite a number  of boarders and roomers.  THE SHAME OF THE YUKON  with unlimited liquoiyat anunlim  ited   price.'   The   enforcement of  the law in reference' to these dens  rests  entirely  iii   the hands  of a  license inspector, and tho mounted  police   are   powerless.     Thus   we  have under the  Canadian   (lag the  shameful   infamy   of   prostitution  licensed  for  SI 00 a year.    AVbo is  .responsible.for. this ?. _Mr.   Pringle  asserts  that  the  Federal   govern-J  ment now controls a majority vote  of the Yukon council, and that the  ultimate   responsibility   must   be  placed at their door.    The charge  is clear and definite, and cannot be  evaded.    The man who lays it h a  minister in connection   with   the  Presbyteriaii^church,' and has ��������� no  excuse for ottering a falsehood.   If  the charges be untrue, let it be denied ; and let proof of its untrnth  be given to the public ; but if the  charge be true, the members of our  Dominion government should know  that Canada will  not tolerate licensed infamy upon  her soil, "even  in the far Yukon."  AVe trust'that in Mr. Hendeison,  tho new governor of the Yukon,  the country may find a man capable and  willing to effect a speedy  change from  this disgraceful and  intolerable   condition   of   affairs.  Our knowledge of him prompts the  belief   that his natural   impulses  will at least lead him lo make an  effort in this direction.    If he succeeds he will merit tho unqualified  approbation of every decent man  in  the   Dominion   irrespective of  party affiliations.     If he  fails, it  will  be because tho grafters and  parasites who aro fattening on the  shame of the Yukon are still allowed   to   pursue their nefarious  course with the full consent of the  authorities at Ottawa, who can no  longer plead ignorance as an excuse  No Other Terminal  J. H.   Bacon,  chief engineer of  theG. T. P. railway company, having charge of the harbor survey of  Prince Rupert, recently  stated  at  Arancouver"that the  G. T. P. railway had never for a moment, considered   any   other  location  than  Prince Rupert for their  terminus.  They had  already expended  over  ������200,000 on the harbor surveys and  harbor improvements, aiul that this  work was actively being carried on.  "The rumor  that there  was a  probability  that  Kitamaat was to  be the ultimate termination of  the  G. T. P. on the coast arose from a  combination of circumstances," remarked   Mr.  JSacon...  ���������'"-T had to  supply employment for six or seven  heads of survey  parties  from   the  prairie districts during the winter,  and this gave me a  large  forco  of  men.    About the time they  were  able to return to  their work in the  interior, I had  to discharge  a lot  who were locally employed as their  helpers, and just then tho company  began   work   on   their   subsidary  branch    terminus"   at   Kitamaat,  which was necessary according to  tho terms of the contract with the  Third Furnace Blown In  At the Dominion Copper Co.'s  Boundary Falls smelter the No. 1  furnace was blown in on Monday,  making the r ti 11 battery of three  furnaces in blast. The large, new  third furnace is now working very  satisfactorily, after a few changes  had been made during the recent  shut-down.  The new crushing plant has been  in operation for some time past,  handling the ore from all of the  company'^ mines. After ' going  through thc crusher, the broken  ore is raised by a bucket elevator  to a point a considerable distance  above the ' bins, from whence it  falls onto a long conveyor belt.  This conveyor is mounted on a  movable base running on a track  between tho two rows of bins. By  moving the entire conveyor alon<*  this track, the crushed ore can be  dropped into chutes leading to any  desired bin. The conveyor is  moved by means of a small electric  motor.���������Anaconda News.  to R. H.  Cosgrove,  secretary, 310  Lindelle block, Spokane, AVash.

Tt has eliminated  one party from  the now celebrated controversy between the province and the railway  company,    and    incidentally    has  afforded a subject upon which  our  Canadian clubs  can gloat over to  their heart's content in relation to  the Indian question in   British Columbia.    There is ample  material  in this-subject to carry on a  One of the most important decisions ever given in British Columbia  was handed down by the full court  in Victoria in connection with   the  application of the Workmen's compensation act,-the first of its  kind  in British  Columbia, was  the case  of F.   B.   Neville  against Messrs.  Kelly, Bros, and Mitchell, contractors for the new postofiice building,  A^incouver, for the  loss  of an eye .  ���������while in their employ.    The appeal  was dismissed.    Briefly it  was an  action on an appeal from the decision of Mr.  Justice  Morrisou on' a  case stated   lo  him   by Magistrate  Alexander,  arbitrator   under   the  compensation act, 1902,   who  had  found iu favor of the plaintiff, but  reserved decision on a point of law  for a supreme court judgment. The  applicant Neville, was employed by  Messrs.  Kelly Bros,   and   .Mitchell  as a steel cutter,  and  while chipping steel  plate  with  a  chisel, a  piece of the chipping flew  up and  struck him in the left eye, of which  he lost the sight.    The arbitrator  came to the conclusion that the occurrence  was  an  accident within  the provisions  of the  act and entitled   to   relief   accordingly.    At  the request of the respondents, the  question was submitted to Mr. Justice Morrison:    Did   the  dying up  of the piece of steel and its entrance   into   the   applicant's  eye,  thereby doing serious injury, con- -  stitute an accident ?    His lordship,  following a decision of the house of  lords,   held   that  it was, and  the  full  court,  after  hearing  the evidence,   were of the same opinion,  and  tlie  appeal   was dismissed.���������  ,,,    ,.        .       , proflfc" Port Essington Sun  able discussion   for  years, and the  sooner the   Canadian   clubs  drop  their worn out text Labor and ap-  provincial government, which calls Ip'y themselves to a solution-of our  for so much mileage in order to re  ceive.the subsidy.

"And the goat  "shall bear upon him all their in-  "iquities unto a land not inhab-  "ited; and he shall let go the goat  "in the wilderness.''  It looks as if the Ottawa politicians bad selected their old colleague aud friend, Henry R. Km-  merson, to serve as their goat. It  was at a time when the air was  thick with reports of wrongdoing  and of proofs of grafting and theft  that the necessity for a goat arose.  Other ministers had been accused  of improprieties of one kind or  another. All, however, had been  pardoned. Of one Sir Wilfrid  Latirier tells ufc that he asked a  third party to enquire of tho ao-  montbs, was obliged to capitulate.  The second victory scored by British Columbia has been achieved in  connection with the subsidy question. The federal politicians  wanted to make the present insufficient grant to the province "final  and unalterable," aud to this end  asked the Imperial government to  insert such'language in the new act  that is going through. Mr. Mc-  Hrido fought the effort to limit the  province, and has triumphed.  The hostility of the Federal government to the provinces is very  marked, and very much to be regretted. While British Columbia  has its battles to fight, Ontario is  equally busy in the same line. The  federal ministers refuse to extend  tho province, and to give U8 our  territorial rights in the "Northwest.  They also decline to give Ontario  justice in the matter' of railway  subsidies."" "We are compelled to  paj7 for railroads all over Canada,  and when we build one for cur-  selves not even a subsidy is* forthcoming. Ottawa forces Ontario to  assume a share of tho cost of the  Intercolonial, and then leaves us  to build tbeTeniiskaming unaided.  While the Federal government observes this attitude toward us, it  takes possession of our public laud,  as,in the Petawawa case, without  permission. It claims, indeed, the  right to confiscate any Ontario  tearitorv it may covet. The same  government has undertaken, to deprive the province of the power to  charter anil supervise companies,  thus reducing the authority of the  legislature iu civil matters.  Ontario, however, does not stand  alone in so far as the attack upon  provincial autonomy is concerned.  All the provinces are assailed, and  in Prince Edward Island the treatment of the people is so bad that  secession is actually talked of. It  is very remarkable that the party  of provincial rights should have  turned out to be the party of hostility to provincial autonomy. But  then, the present Ottawa rulers  have changed in other matters.  Once they were free traders ; now  they are for protection.

Around  every   corner,   along   canals'  and  creoks, in market places, at the city  gates, both outside and inside, and  especially- in   the   temple' yards,  there   are   beggars   here,   beggars  there and beggars everywhere, and  a more  pitiablo sight one  cannot  meet.    Many of them are crippled  or iidlietcd -with  leprosy,   and  all  are dressed literally in rags.  ���������\*J made a trip in a  houseboat to  Soochow, moving through the numerous canals in the city and  stopping when [ wished to take a view,  ['landed by a clean, fresh painted,  large yamen, spotlessly white, "with  blue-black tiles on  the roef, and  placed my camera against the wall  to photograph a big.pagoda on tlie  other side of the canal, writes Carl  Bock,   in  the  Gentleman's Magazine.     The  usual  Chinese  crowd  soon came around  me,   and  not a"  few  beggars.    I  asked  an intelligent-young Chinaman through my  interpreter who lived in  this  fine  big   mansion,   so -unusually  well  kept for a Chinese house?   I was  not a little astonished ,when I was  told the beggar chief of Soochow.  This led   me to make enquiry  about  the system   of   begging iu  China, which is  wonderfully  well  organized   under   a   scheme   that  works admirably, and is, of course,  very ancient, like all other institutions in the Middle Kingdom. The  chief has a  fine  residence, concubines by the half dozen aud  very  fine clothing, and he is'seen in the  best of society���������but only where he  is not known.    As a  mark of his  dignity he moves about with a long  stick, which is allowed  him by the  "city authorities.'   He also .has the  power, of life and  death__oyer__his  beggarly subjects and punishes all  offences committed by them.  The beggar chief is a regular attendant at the marriage ceremonies  and  funeral   processions of private  families in order to get his pay for  keeping away his hungry crowd of  beggars, who otherwise would hinder the fpstival  or procession in a  disagreeable,   noisy  way.     I was  told that the beggar chief of Soochow has an income of about 815,-  000 a year.    The billet of the one  in  Shanghai  city  is worth  about  85,000.  Most storekeepers have an  agreement with the beggar chief to  keep his ." staff " away.    They pay  about  SI   a year  each, and in return  for this  trifling amount the  ��������� | chief gives a printed receipt to the  :-^ 'storekeeper, which the latter pastes  on his door, to the  effect that  he  !has paid  his tax and  is exempt  from the deniands-of beggars.  There tiro different kinds of beggars.     Tin penal  beggars,   or Lao  yen   ting  (the  words  mean "old  , man's button ") have probably uo  .... I parallel in the ' world,  as some of  ml | them are descendants of the. ���������.an-  (HI jcient Ming dynasty,  or distantly  | related to the present reigning im-  j perial house.    They' are scattered  all over the country,  are said to  number upward of 10,000, and are  specially numerous in Pekin.    Imperial beggars are easily recognized  because they aro allowed to wear   ������ifcfcfc  of the ordinary beggar chief  In Nankin there is quite a select  company of them, the.order having beeu instituted as far back as  the Miug dynasty. Hung Wu,  the founder of the Ming dynasty,  was once a beggar himself. " The  rise from beggar to emperor probably beats the record of any dynasty  in Europe. In pious remembrance  of his former profession Huug Wu  instituted this order. At present  they live iu certain caves or recesses that are made in the city  wall. The largest of these recesses  is 40 feet long by 20 feet wide; the  inmates are very .comfortably  lodged and are decently dressed,  but they are addicted to opium  smoking.  Besides seeking alms, these imperial beggars go about the country  and obtain a livelihood by swearing false oaths in court. Their  oaths are considered as binding and  sacred, so they are often much  sought after, because for a few  taels o"ne can get such a beggar to  swear an oath which always decides the case. The magistrates  are liable to pay the imperial beggars an allowance every year, but  it is said they often forget.to do so,  as they know well that these beg  gars are not in want.  lot arrives at its  Cunning Chinese Thieves.  ,-. Much difficulty has lately arisen  among the 'importers in China  through the disappearance of part  of their consignments, says a consular report.    The  losses do not . .., .__  ���������,  come so  much  through  boxes or woven straw  with  which  chests being carried off entire as  through their contents being abstracted, the receptacle being left,  as a rule, in apparently the same  shape as when leaving the exporter's warehouse. This is a common  trick, and.makes a discovery at the  time of tho theft most difficultluid  the task of tracing the goods even  more so, as the shortage  is seldom  noticed until the  destination.  Ingenious means  are often   contrived  to prevent the loss being  noticed. .-One of the leading importers of provisions  remarked recently  that he had  found ".empty  cans in  his  preserved   fruit boxes  which had been substituted for the  full ones taken out, so that the con-'  tents would not rattle or shift, and  so   disclose   the loss.    Ho stated  also that shavings and excelsir had  been stuffed into boxes made empty,  or partially so, through the removal  of crackers or biscuits.    "Not  long  ago a heavy loss was sustained by  one of  the  American   missionary  schools at  this  place  through the  loss of linen drawn work, the value  of which exceeded 81,500 iu gold.  The skilful way in which this theft  was accomplished made all efforts  to recover the goods or apprehend  the thieves futile. The drawn work-  was packed  iu a box which   was  strongly secured by iron strapping,  and was also carefully nailed.   The  box was carried to the customs and  thence to  the steamer,   and  was  scarcely out of the sight of somo  responsible person for a moment.  .   -When the box  reached the customs   collector   at   Pittsburg,   to  which it went in   bond  from   New  York, it was found to contain nothing  but  woven  straw and paper,  scarcely a thread of the  linen   remaining.    The consignor was  immediately notified   and  the most  searching efforts were made to effect  a recovery and discover the thief,  but   all   attempts   to   accomplish  either were of uo avail.    No trace  of the goods had  ever  been found  nor   any   clue   discovered   which  might lead to the detection of the  thieves, though the variety of the  the box  Greenwood, B:,C, July 4, 1907.

Such jnsrajices might be multiplied almost indefinitely, but they  all go to show that more care must  be taken in boxing and packing  goods so 'as to render such thefts  impossible, or at least increasingly  difficult. Numerous suggestions  might be afforded, all qf which  should depend somewhat upon the  character of the. goods and the size  and shape of the receptacle containing them.
