The following, written by G.  Sheldon Williams, appeared in the  first issue of- Westward Ho 1 Mr.  Williams cannot be accused -of being partial to labor organizations,  so his remarks will have the more  force;''He does not hesitate to  to score both parties to the disputes between labor and capital.  He says, in part:  It is not an  easy thing,  in the  limits of,a magazine article, to do  justice to a matter so involved as  that   of   the relation of  what is  called labor-unionism to the mining 'industry.    The subject has���������  partly for this reason and partly  because a fair discussion of it is  considered likely to give offence in  many quarters���������not hitherto been  adequately dealt   with , by  either  press or platform.    In saying this  it is not intended to be conveyed  that the  question   has   not been  dealt   with   at all.    Far from it.  But it has always been handled  purely, from the miner's standpoint,  or   purely   from   the    employer's  standpoint, or from the standpoint  of that most excellent human jellyfish, bred to perfection in all democratic  countries,   whose principal  aim in life is to achieve the impos  sible   by simultaneously   running.,  with the hare and  hunting with  the hounds.    The discussion,.from  these three standpoints has naturally done little to increase the sum  of human knowledge, or to benefit  the community as a whole.  Now, this brief attempt to discuss a question in which every.citi-  zeh of British Oolunibia ia-iuoro or  less directly interested may well  be commenced with the statement  that the miners' union differs from  every other Aind of labor union.  This is because of the nature of the  miner's work, and the surroundings amid which it is carried on.  For it is of all human employments  the most hazardous, the least re  lieved in its ever present peril by  the distraction, of agreeable but-I ant and dangerous as his, got much"  ences of that sort give a bettor idea  of the hardships and perils of a  miners' life than all the newspaper  articles and' political  speeches  in  the country put together.  It is only justice to the miner to  remark here that the manly over-  *������ .  coming of this fear in the hour of  trial and danger lends an additional glory to the numerous acts  of self-sacrificing heroism in the  face of death which aro so often to  be noted in mining accidents. . It  is not on record that there has  ever been any lack of volunteers  for a rescue party at a mine catastrophe, no matter how great the  danger.       *       * *       *  Now, mining in one shape or another has been going on ever since  man discovered the use of metals  and fuel stored in the bowels of the  earth ; and for many centuries the  miner was a person whose work  waB rough, bard and dangerous,  and, therefore���������odd" as it may  seem���������very poorly paid. He was  not, in most countries, very far  removed from a savage in regard  to culture and education, and, except when he went on a spree, or  had a grievance against his employers and sought to express his  feelings by a riot, tho world of  fresh air and snushiue knew very  little about him, except that it  burned the coal or forged the  metals which he- had extracted  from the depths. But, in modern  times, came education���������free.education. And several things resulted from that.     v  Many very excellent, but very  foolish, people think that free cdu-  catioiriuakes men happy. It does  nothing.of the kind ;. but it makes  them think. And when free education got down to the miner, he  thought a good deal. He learned  that people above ground did pretty  well with the rough stuff which he  tore, with toil and dauger, fiom  tunuel and shaft. IIo learnt that  many people, whose work was nowhere near as  hard  and  unpleas  roundings, and the least compre  bended by those not immediately  concerned in it.  For the information of the last  mentioned, for the instruction of  those whose lives are cast in pleasant places, whose work is above  ground in the fresh air and sunlight, it may be well to pause here  and   briefly review   some   of the  more   prominent features   of  the  miner's occupation.    '  ��������� In the first place, there is practically in "every man's heart a natural  fear of the dark and underground���������  born, so some scientists tell  ue, of  hereditary   impressions   resulting  from great geological catastrophes  and. attendant terrible conditions  which afllicted the human race before the dawn of authentic history.  bigger   wages   than   he did.    He  learnt that, while one mau by himself can seldom get what he wants,  a number 6t  people   holding together and determined to obtain  their desires, generally do obtain  them, because they are so numerous a body of men that people have  a delicacy about refusing   them.  And having learnt all this aud a  good deal besides, he thought some  more.    And then came the Miners'  Union.  Was it���������is it���������a good  thing or a  man efforts aud productions, it  was a mixture of both and remains  so today. In so far as it has been  used to improve the conditions  among which the underground  toiler works, and has given him a  The   habit   and custom   of   their fair   wage   and shorter   hours of  Call  and  see  the  new   line  of  enamel goods afc Logan & Co.  j To arrive this week���������another car  of wheat, oats, chopped feed, bran  and short.''.

The  writer knows^whereof he speaks,  having on more than one occasion  had to wiggle through a cavod-in  tunnel, where there was uotr even  room-to crawl on your hands and  knees," where the long slivers projecting from the massive roof  timbers, which had been cracked  liko raatohwood, that every day  under the weight ,of hundreds of  tons of rock above them, caught in  your'clothes ub you lay ; where no  man dared to speak above the  lightest whisper, lost the vibration  of the air would bring about the  labor, it is a good thing; for it is  not well for any country that any  section of its workers Bhould be  should be kept in the condition of  brutes and slaves.       *  .    *,     ���������*  Let us look now at the mining  company which employs theinin-  ers aud without which���������bo it remembered���������there would bo no  mines aud no employment, for  miners. On a very largo proportion of this North American continent the earth contains a variety  of metals and non-metallic uiin-.  erals of industrial value./ The  mining of these substances is an  important industry, as a natural  consequeuce. In some sectious,  notably iu British Columbia, it is  the principal industry.  Uufortunately, with the rare exception of some of the richer placer  gold fields, this mineral wealth is  neither easily nor quickly obtained  the expectation of acquiring a fortune,' a competency or even' a  mo'dcst'livelihood. by, the unaided  strength of his own muscles. Von  do 'not handle a- rich ow field with  the same oa,so Hint you do a potato  plot���������digging up its contents and  carrying'them to market on ' your  own hack. Jt requires an immense expenditure-'of money for  wages,- "for. "machinery, for supplies���������an expenditure, too, con-  tin ued\over several years.���������before  even the richest mine will begin to  put figures on the profit side of tho  ledger.' ' ��������� '���������'���������'��������� *'' * ' * -::'  It is to be remembered in this  connection that not merely a large  sum of money is required, but that  the said'sum will return no profits  to'those investing it for���������as shown  previously���������an average period of  live years. -Moreover, there i.-ralways the chance���������(hough modern  scientific knowledge .and improed  methods of treatment have greatly  reduced the danger���������that the mineral may either disappear' altogether with, depth; or may sojua-  .terially change for the worse in  quality and quantity as to render  the property no longer profitable,  to work. And tlie burden of (Ids  uncertainty is not the least among  those, which the mining company  must shoulder, for, if such a misfortune happens, they have spent  their money to no.purpose. The'r  miners will have received (heir  wage every payday, the company's  liabilities for machinery will have  been promptly met ; aiuLyel, after  tsvo, three or four years of steady  development work, the company  may find that -all its money has  been put into a hole in the ground  which will-never yield back one  cent of it. It will thus be scon if  the miner runs risks of one kind  the mining company runs risks of  another, and it is well 1.6 remember this fact when reflecting upon  tho high profits made by some few  of the more successful. *       :;:  Now, in fair justice to (lie miners' union and the mining company, it must be said that, in very  many cases, both of the parties  have shown a clear comprehension  of each other's positions. Therearo  plenty of mining companies���������it is  unnecessary to mention their  names���������who have been working  for years without ever having had  any friction with their meu. More  than this, in not a few cases wages  have been voluntarily raised by  the companies. All over this con-  tsnent mines are to be found where  employer and  employee  work  (o-  And  the  thorie among their ranks who saw  in the movement a chance to make  ''easy money," to secure a luxurious livelihood at the expense of  their fellowmen���������in a word, to  "exploit" their brother workmen,  even as those workmen had hitherto been '.���������explofted" by their employers. And , they .also clearly  perceived, as time went by'and 'the  new era of things came to. be. accepted, that if the Minois' union  and the mining company wero t'o  be allowed 'to dwell together iu  harmony, the profits of the*said  ������������������exploiting" would be very small,  indeed. .  ���������     -  Then arose the class which, under the various names" of " organizer," "walking delegate," "labor  member" "and a host of similar disguises, has done, and is still doing,  for tlie sake of their own sordid  gain, so much (o embitter tho relations between the mining company and the Miners' union. Glib  of tongue, soft of hand, well fed  and well dressed, ever ready with  the specious s<ook arguments which  idnencss and knavery have invented as an excuse for ttie low  hatred of another man's success  which lurks in many human hearts,  they travel in luxury from point to  point., stirring up stiife "and ill-  feeling between labor and capital,  the two classesj who of all classes  in thc world, arc most dependent  each upon (he other and have most  reason lo work "together peaceably.  These, men are. always talking of  "graft" : but what graft is like  unto their graft ? They are ready  to shout about the rights of work-  iiigmen, but have never a word  about, tin- duties of workingmen.  And the genuine miner, the mau  wIkms really doing his work and  his duty, puts his hand in his  pocket and pays out.money to keep  these human vampires in idleness  and luxury, under tlie  impression  that they  arc   "protecting his interests."  Turn now to the other reason  why the Miners' union, and the  mining company do not always  live in harmony���������where it is the  fault of tlie mining company. Its  members are also human beings  and quite as likely to want more  than they arc entitled to as are the  members of the Miners' union,.  Moreover, on this continent, the  man with money has le.isconsideration for the man without it than in  any other part of the civilized  world. This'is because owing to  (he groat opportunities for the  s-peedy acquisition of wealth which  tlie whole community suffers.  A marked instance of placing a  man wholly unfitted by nature and  training iu the position of manager of a mining company has recently been afforded during some  labor troubles very fresh in the-  public's memory. -And it would  seem to be a question for a federal  statute:---The argument that because a man is a good lawyer and  well-to-do   he   is   therefore fitted  **  to be a good mine manager, is too  childish to be discussed. It is  typically the/viewpoint of a country which is the^ paradise of the  " Jack of all trades and master of  of none";" but it is neither common sense nor business. Great  Britain handles her mines considerably better than any other  country in the world. Please to  Consider the howl of derision which  would greet the appointment of a  London barrister aB manager of a  Cardiff colliery.  The manager of a mining company should be a trained and  skilled miner himself. He needs  to be other things besides, -but the  law should see that he he has at  least that qualification. He should  know the men's needs, understand  from practical experience their  point of view, and be a man of  sufficient sense aud personal pride  to be above that ridiculous snobbery and indifference to the wants,  feelings and .comforts of others  which the possession of a few dollars- often how ridiculously few-  seems to have the trick of breed- ���������  ing in the self-raised "man of the  people."  bad thing?

A few experi-Uhat a poor man can go into with means left to them,   there,   were  ease ?  There are two principal answers  to   this question.    One  fault  lies  with the Miners' union,  the  other  one   with   the   mining ' company.  Taking the case of the union   first,  it must he remembered  that every  such   organization���������-even .as   also  every   mining "company���������is   composed of human beings necessarily  imperfect and possessed of 'human  failings.    There.are black sheep in  every Hock,   and  the  fact that, a I  inan  bolongsj.toa  miners'   union  does not of necessity 'imply that he  is either honest or industrious.    Of  course,'  it   is   hot 'fashionable to  make such a statement as thisnow-  a-days,   but ns this  article is not  written for the purpose of -catching  votes, the luxury of truth- m^y for  once be indulged iii.  sources, (he  vast   majority  of  the  moil   of  money   today   began   life  without--a cent,    being    laborers  themselves.     Now,   it  is  a  well-  known fact that no man is so cruel  to.tho poor as a  poor, man  grown  rich.    The old   proverb regarding  the,  beggar on horseback is as true  today as it over   was     And, while  some men of wealth   have learned  wisdom and  consideration in dealing with those who work for them,  there are many who have not  the  ] capacity, to burn.    This, may seem  j a curious  tiling  to  say  of a rich  [inan, but the fact is that the ability  j to acquire wealth is 113- no .means a  j proof of any  general.intelligence.

The Reception Hotel  *  In Ciiinliorne gives all its putrous  the purest food, drink and'cigar*  James   Lindsley' Prop.  Sir "Wilfrid Laurier the Speaker  ruled this'motion out of order on  the ground that the subject had  beed dealt with before. Mr; Borden, Mr. Foster and several other  Conservatives protested against  this ruling as too strict and technical and all Conservatives except  three or four supported Mr. Bourassa when he appealed to the  house against the Speaker's ruling.  April 2nd. on the third reading  of the Tariff bill, Mr. Borden  moved an amendment setting  forth that legislation with respect  to tariff belongs to parliament, and  declaring that the clauses of the  Tariff bill giving the governor-  in-council power to bring the intermediate tariff in operation be  struck out. It was rejected by a  straight party vote of S4 to *>('.  Mr. Monk moved on April 1th  that the namun of the persons representing the North Atlantic Trading company, who had received  over $:{00,00() from the govern-,  ment for alleged immigration services, should be made known by  the accountant of the interior department, and also that he should  give further details as to printing  bills iu connection with the corporation. The government, which  has persisted in keeping secret the  names of the persons with whom  Mr. W. T. R. Preston made his  astonishing deal, opposed this motion, which was rejected by a vote  of 80 to 50, three independent  Liberals voting for the motion and  condemning the suspicious policy  of secrecy and  misrepresentation.  April 12th Mr. Lake of (l������*-  Appello moved a resolution condemning the course of the interior  department in giving to a party  supporter, who was also a government candidate for the house of  commons,  the townaite of Blair-  niorc, which at the time it was  granted was worth $100,000 or  more, aud two years afterwards  about S200.000, and for which the  government "received $480, or  SI,700 less than was paid from the  treasury for expenses in the transaction. This grant was made to  the beneficiary as an assignee of  the pq natter's rights of an Italian  railway man, whose claim had  been shown before the exchequer  court to be based on fraud and  perjury. Mr. Lake's motion was  rejected by a party majority of 50  to 27.  Mr. Borden on April loth  brought to the attention of the  house a resolution which had been  adopted two years before, and was  then supported by the premier  himself, declaring that no official should be permitted to engage  in partizan work of any description in federal or provincial elections. jThe opposition leader  showed that this rnle' had been  violated in subsequent by-elections,  especially in the election of Mr.  Fielding iu Shelbourne and Q.ueens,  custom house officers, postmasters  and other officials acted openly as  campaigners, three or four of them  acting as agents of Mr. Fielding at  the polls at his own request, and  some of them exercising corrupt or  coercive influence. In view of  these and similar instances iu  other parts of the 'country, Mr.  Borden moved a resolution expressing regret that the rule adopted in 1905 had been violated. This  resolution was rejected by a straight  party vote of 70 to 40.  April 10th Mr. Borden introduced a resolution in reference to  fraudulent practices at elections  and asking that provision be made  for the more effective suppression  of bribery ; for the prevention of  fraudulent marking, counting or  substitution of ballots ; for the  better regulation of the conduct of  elections on the part of both officials and candidates; for preventing the accumulation oi huge campaign funds ; for prohibiting contributions thereto by corporations,  contractors and promoters ; and  also to expedite the hearing of  election petitions, to prevent arrangements for their discontinuance and to prouide for the thor:  ough investigation of corrupt practices. This resolution also called  attention to the fact that a measure for the amendment of the  election laws in these respects had  been promised in the speech from  the "throne and expressed regret  that no such measure had been introduced. This motion was rejected by a straight party vote of  78 to 44..  On the 26th of April Mr. Borden movad a resolution Betting  forth that the rapidly increasing  public expenditure was a matter of  grave concern, that the expenditure authorized duriug the session  then just closing amounted to  $121,42S,2'J{), exclusive of railway  subsidies of $5,000,000 and loans  of ������i),678,200, making a total of  Sl'56,100,42'.), or about 822 for  every inhabitant of Canada and  $110 for every family of five.J  Mr. Borden showed that the  taxation had increased from less  than $28,000,000 in 1896 to more  than 800,000,000 in 1906, and that  the taxation per head had nearly  doubled in ten years.  The resolution laso stated that  the public assets had been depleted  by grants and concessions by which  designing partizan intriguers had  become enriched at-the expense of  the people, that the public committee had during the^ast two ses  sious disclosed the operations of  middlemen who had made enormous profit and rake-off iu public  business, and also that election  frauds exposed had been carried  out by the expenditure of large  sums of money and the aid of such  middlemen.  Mr. Borden's motion asked the  house to condemn this inal-adinin-  istratiou and corruption. This  motion was defeated by a straight  party vote of 91 to 43.  This list of motions and divi  sions gives a fair idea of the policy  aud position of "the Laurier government and the Conservative opposition led by Mr. Borden.  Job Printing at Tlie Ledge.

'���������; The Boundary district derives  it's name  from  Boundary creek,  which flows into the' Kettle river  at Midway/hear the International  ine. * . ' .   ~  ' It is a mining region largely.  The district has been fairly well  prospected,,but" the part as yet  actively producing is very small.  ��������� A strip of country, ten miles  north and south and fifteen miles  east ami west,'.comprises the present producing area. Within this  small area are the towns of Greenwood, Grand Forks and'Phoenix ;  'Greenwood in the valley of Boundary creek, Grand Forks in the val-  lew of the Kettle river, and Phoenix on the divide between these  valleys;  " The altitude of Grand Forks is  about "1,900 feet, of Greenwood  2,400, and of Phoenix 4,500..  CLIMATIC.        "    .   '  The climate of the entire-district is remarkably good the year  round. The winters of Greenwood and Grand Forks are about  four months long, while those of  Phoenix are somewhat longer,  though not severe.' There is little excessive heat in summer, little excessive cold in winter, very  little wind, no cyclones, and few  electrical storms.  - The country generally is well  watered, and the scenery beautiful.  I'KUIT  CAPABILITY. ���������  Around Grand Forks a magnificent'farm and fruit district has  been..developed in a few years.  There are thousand's of acres of  these "lands available, and within  a few years past many hundreds  of   acres  have been  planted   to  fruit,- for which -coil   and-climate  are ideal,  not been  here, but with development will.  West of Greenwood, beginning  at Midway, about eight miles distant, the Kettle valley again  widens, and for many miles presents a most charming landscape.  Thousands of acres of this valley and adjacent bench lands are  admirably' adapted for fruit, as  proven by the few orchards now  in cultivation.'  Irrigation is now being applied  in-this district by individuals and  corporations. One company, the  "Kettle Valley Irrigated Fruit  Lands," has now a large acreage  on the market. Seven thousand  fruit trees were planted this spring  -^ i in the vicinity of Midway,  TK A NSI'O KTATION.  The  district  has   beeu   fairly  well provided for in ths matter of  Wf  that employ about 200 men, while  the Snowshoe, at Phoenix, employs about 75. The average  monthly wage of these men is  about $100. At present there is  a scarcity of miners aud laborers  in all the camps.  The chief,mines of the Granby  and Dominion are at 'Phoenix,  those of the B. C. Copper about  2l/i miles west of Greeiiwood and  at Summit, north of Greenwood.  Summit camp is served by both  lines of railway. _  The Granby's big smelter plant  of 3,000 tons djaily capacity is a I  Grand Forks, the B. C.'s of 1,800  tons at Greenwood, and Ihe Dominion's of 1,500 to!is on Boundary creek, about 2'/: miles below  Greenwood.  The Boundary- made a beginning in mining in 1900, in tliat  year mining and reducing less  than 100,000 tons. ��������� In each succeeding year the output has increased. In 1906 the tonnage was  over 1,250,000. For the weekending July 5th, 1907, 38,000 tons  were reduced in the three district  smelters.  The ore bodies are very large,  but of low grade, averaging between $5.00 and $6 00 to the ton.  With the present prices for copper  obtaining this value is considerably increased. The ore is cheaply mined and easily smelted,  being self-fluxing.  The world's record for cheap  mining and smelting is claimed  for the Boundary. A-net profit  of. about $2.50 per ton is realized  from the ore.  At least two other large concern* are plnanin.tr .to.enter the  As yet irrigation has I field.    The Consolidated  Mining  generally    introduced  and Smelting company of Canada  (Ltd.), has already acquired large  holdings near Phoenix, while a  syndicate with ample means has  bonded a group of claims aggregating several hundred acres,  west of Greenwood.  Several smaller companies, syn;  dicates,' and individuals are developing many other promising  properties.  Opportunity yet remains for  those capable of promoting large  enterprises. Groups of very good  claims are yet attainable in several places, at reasonable prices.  Since this district described,  about the equal in area of four  townships, first began shipping  seven years ago, it has marketed  $25,000,000 worth of the metals,  and with present prices maintained the 1907 output will crowd  the $10,000,000 mark for the year.  am  The productive area-is gradually ��������� widening, - and .new camps  are opening up in localities not  far remote.   .'  -���������    "-[' *���������' l'OWUR  USKD.

A.,  At  the  recent  meeting  of   the  Anglican church Synod in Toronto,  a good do.T.1 of   jitlnnt.imi 'win givfn  to the corrupt condition   of public  affairs in Canada at  present.    Thc  Church of   England docs not often  refer to political affairs in its public gatherings.    When   it does so  we may be assured that the.gravity  of the condition considered made a  very strong impression  on  the assemblage.    j\r?-. Blake volunteered  the information that there  is  no  body of men over whose eyes financiers can ���������'pull the  wool" as  they  can   over   the   clergy.      "Thank  God," said he, ''they <are  for  the  most part a guileless body of men,  but they  do  not  know very often  the first thing about  politics, the  civil and social life of those people  in  its  most immediate ' neighborhood.      They   preach .generalities  when what is needed is particulars.  Politics are only  what  we  make  them, and corruption has crept into  our country in  leaps and  bounds.  What is needed is  for  politicians,  from the  premier down, to refuse  to accept any 'appointment  which  has been  bought.    Better lose an  election   utterly   than   buy  it.    I  claim that those who honor us with  their votes have the  wholu  matter  in their hands.    The  Bible,   from  Genesis to  Revelations,  speaks of  'success' only  once, while it is full  of  the  words  'truth,'    'charity,'  ' purity,' and ��������� gopdnes-*.'   To keep  this before the people and  church  is the only way to purify politics."  Mr. Blake then moved :  "That   the  report  be referred  bock for the purpose of  introduc-  ingjapt words to express the conviction of tins sy nod, that a great  purification    of    politics,    financial    and    social    and    business  methods in the country, is imperatively demanded in tho country to-  today ;  and   that the church, its  bishops,   her clergy and  laymen,  should take a leading part in immediately changing the present deplorable state of affairs."  This was heartily applauded and  passed unanimously.  VCODVftlSrtT  Premier  Hungarian  Flour  Is not a new flour on the market. It  has been in use for year*. Ask for a sack  iii your next order.
