S.  Keith of Sumpter, Ore. The writer  is an old South African .comrade of  Mr. Keith, and has served in three  campaign!* with the British colors,  ft is not to be wondered at that he  is disgusted at the ''treatment re.  ceived by those who contributed  to the success of' tho British in  South Africa. Mr. Hendry was at  oiie time a resident of Rossland :  Kordshy, June 1.0, 1007.  Wo are in the midst of a strike  just now, and it is either to be the  making of the country or every  white man will have to get out.  The mine magnates are showing  their hand nqw and if the government does not step in wo aro finished. During elections they tried  to stir up What would bo called  racial fouling, that was to keep out  labor members, thinking that they  would go baud in hand with the  Dutch. Well, now they havo  switched around and aro chipping  the doppci'H on thc back and  bringing them to work at the  mines ; of course telling them that  the mines should bo theirs and not  the Britishers. One group in advertising for mon iu Staiulorton,  had the nerve to say that no British  llced apply.    One chap wrote  EuiToii Lkiicik : In reference to  an item first appearing in your  paper and copied into several  others, reflecting"on Smith .Curtis  aud  his  election   methods, I hope  ill the intercut of-fn-ir plny'-you-will-  publish this contradiction  of that  story.      You   say   "the   witness,  Sinclair, swore that  he had  given  an option on his property for $30,-  090.to Smith  Curtis, but after the  election there was no more heard  of it."    You should have also said  that   the   prisoner,   Sinclair,   was  convicted  of obtaining money under false pretenses in spite of this  oath.    Unfortunately  for me, this  Sinclair was in  my  employ at the  time and told me he "was going to  try and get Mr. Curtis to sell this  ranch for  him,   and  that he was  going to  vote   for   him   anyway.  Subsequently Mr.   Curtis, saw nie  and asked me as to  the real value  of the  ranch, which  I told  him,  and he replied that he would have  nothing to do  with  it.    This  was  before   the   election.    Mr.   Curtis  never had an option on the ranch,  and   Sinclair   worked   and   voted  against him for a consideration.  R. G. Sidi.ky,  A disgusted Liberal.  Sidley, B. C, July 19, .1907.  [The Ledgo based its remarks on  the sworn statement of Sinclair. If  lie did not tell   the  truth on oath,  the best course to pursue would be  to  charge   Sinclair   with   perjury  and settle the question.    The item  was published to show tho peculiar  methods resorted to in the hidt provincial campaiu by  the nou-"dis-  gustible"   portion  of  the   Liberal  party in this section of Canada.   It  is well known that previous to the  elections the interior of this province  was Hooded  with  bills of a  bank  not doing   business   in the  West.    It is remarkable that these  bills were distributed only by the  presumably iioii-"dinguatiblo" Lib-  City conncil met in regular session Monday evening. Present,  Mayor Bunting and Aldermen  Desrosiers, Nelsol and Sullivan.  Minutes of previous meeting read  aud adopted.  A letter was read from the Vancouver Pipe company, giving the  cost and weight of four and six-  inch pipe per foot. The mayor  stated he had'instructed clerk to  order pipe. On motion mayor's  action iu ordering pipe was endorsed. The question of labor was  discussed, and it was reported that  there would be no difficulty iu securing men to complete the waterworks system.  A. letter was read from Kobt. H.  Hargreaves, instructor of the Boys'  Brigade, asking for assistance iu  procuring gymnasium outfit. The  sum of 825 was granted.  All spoke of having received  complaints from residents in reference to the band not having given  open.air concerts iluring the season.  It was pointed out that in addition  to S25 iu cash per month, the  band had free room, light and  wood, totaling between .8500 and  8600 per annum. It was thought  that Borne return should be made  to the ratepayers for this expenditure. A motion was finally passed  instructing the clerk to write the  band that unless they fulfilled their  agreement with city, the council  would discontinue "monthly donation after 31st August.  Fire and light committee were  "ihltfli'ctetl'to~confer with''firechief  re practices, testing of fire alarm,  etc. It was stated that although  an agreement had been entered  calling for at least 12 practices, the  brigade had fallen short 10 or 11  practice's in the past year.  Fire and light committee were  instructed to inspect the bath tub  and connections recently put in at  the fire hall and report at next  meeting.  Waterworks committee reported  agreement for dam site on Providence creek completed.  Cemetery and pound committee  reported that work had not yet-  been started on the water system  for cemetery.  Finance committee reported the  following accounts correct, which  were ordered paid:  Greenwood Waterworks Co $133 25  Hunter-Keudrick Co      6 75  Canadian Rubber Co      8 90  Ore Exhibit to Winnipeg-     17 00  Council adjourned.

As usual, the most  interesting case, and the one requiring the greater number of wit  nesses, and the most conflicting  evidence came from Anarchist  Mountain.  Winifred S. Lord and George  Melville Holt, were admitted to  citizenship. The docket was as  follows:  Smith & McEwen v. S. T. Smith  ���������Judgement summons and ordered  to pay $10 a month. I H.

Almquist���������This is a  most complicated case, or series of  cases, involving all sorts of claims  and counter claims, damages and  counter damages. The case, it is  heedless to say. comes from Anarchist mountain. The witnesses  are about evenly divided as to  numbers, arid are widely divergent  in the conclusions arrived at on  points at issue. His honor is unruffled at the end of two days of  .most conflicting evidence. The  counsel are: C. J. Leggatt and  D. Whiteside for plaintiff, and A.  M. Whiteside for the defense.  K. of P. Install.  B. C. COPPER CO. DIVIDEND.  orals, That Mr. Sidley is "disgusted" with the Liberal machine  is not surprising. That ho still  remains a Liberal is also not sur-  ing to those who know Mr. Sidley.  lie is one of those who beleive  that there are a'siillioieiit number  of tho Alexander McKenzie stamp  in the party to eventually purify it.  And all independent thinkers will  iigrco with him that tho purifying  up to the Mincrd'  uniou stating' process cannot commence any too  Mining is conducted for the purpose of paying dividends, and  the  Miner is frequently called upon to  chronicle the fact that some provincial   company has declared a  dividend.    It is most welcome news  that the B.  C. Copper Co.,   which  owns the Mother Lode group and  the smelter at Greenwood, has declared   an  initial dividend of 25  cents   per 'share..   The   dividend  will be 15 cents, or a total  of 40  cents   per share.   This  donation  will     be fully    appreciated      by  the   shareholders,  as it   probably  indicates that the company intends  to pay quarterly  dividends of 25  cents per share or $1 pejj annum iu  dividends.    Any additional profits  will be apportioned in  the way  of  bonuses to the shareholders.    The  affairs of the B. C. Copper company  are in a most prosperous condition,  with plenty of pay ore in sight in  its mines, aud a largo and improved  diuelter in which to reduce its ore,  it evidently has a long life of prosperity before it.���������Itosslaud Miner.

Mark  Twain has just returned from what  will probably be his last trip across  the Atlantic, because for sometime  past Mark has been quietly gettiug  funeral rates from competing  undertakers.    Mark had the time of  his life in England this summer  and was fairly sober during all the  festivities that were lavished  upon  him.    He toured   the high  spots  around the throne and  had roast  chicken   every   day    for   supper.  Mark admits that the visit to the  tight little island took seven years  ofi his life, but he has not yet di-.  vulged the beverage that he used  although'it is generally known that  it was not John Bull Bitters.    Mark  brought bacik with him nearly every  thing except a title.    Being too old  to get married again he does not  need one in the United States.  Men's Home at Kamloops last week  by 8. T.

Everyone interested in politics here  would greatly enjoy hearing him  talk ou Dominion politics.  Job printing of every description  done promptly at The Ledge office.  A dispatch iu  the dailly press  bells about a doctor who saw  his  father die while 3000 miles distaut.  This is telepathy and not so rare  as some think.    I have known several  people who had  experiences  siiuilarto   the New  York doctor.  They were all highly nervous; just  like men  and  women  who easily  see spooks upon a dark night.    Telepathy is yet a baby science, but if  wireless telegraphy can successfully  throw thought through space,   the  human mind should   be able to do  the same thing.    I once  knew  a  Spokane miningman who  claimed  that he, talked to his  wife every  night, that he was miles away from  her.    The   method   was  perfectly  safe.    I experimented a great deal  with thought trailtference, but with  only  moderate success.    I  would  sit for hours at a tiuiojn my office  aud send telepathic messages to my  delinquent subscribers,but not once  did I get what I considered a mental  reply through space, though quite  frequently I afterwards received  a  a material reply through the mail.  I am satisfied that when it conies  to a matter of thought transmission  through space between  two telepathic mentalities,  that it makes  no difference whether they are six  feet  or six thousand feet away.  Some have this power just the samt  as the gifted few have .along obhei  lines of what might be called the  mysteries of genius.  The Eastern press are poking fun  at the. West because burglars recently broke into 23.offices in Vancouver and only realized $60 in  plunder, and are gently insinuating  that" the wealth of the West is all  in the air. . The cent belt papers  do not undedstand the Western situation. Here the chances - are so  great to make money that businessmen do not-keep it in,their offices  even over- Sunday night. They  keep it moving so fast from one  deal to the other that the loss from  friction is becoming a serious matter. ��������� A $20- gold piece will grow  thin in Vancouver in six months.  It is not necessary in Toronto to  break open safe3 in order to get  money. All you have to do is to  is to stamp Cobalt on something  and flash it before the multitude.  The wealth snatched from the  prairies-is rapidly coming to the  Coast for a permaueut location. .  It is coming so fast that the problem of supplying houses to the ever  increasing throng is already a serious matter, and a famiue in dwellings is due here the coming fall. It  is pleasing to have prosperity, but  a city can have too much of that  for-the comfort and convenience of  its citizens.  -. Ten years ago there was a milling stock boom in British Columbia  and little attention was paid the  fruit or real estate. The stock  boom faded away, leaving many a  sore heart perched upon a pile of  gilt calored certificates, but mining  did nob cease. It has gone steadily  on, the increase alone in the production of copper in this Province  within the past decade amounting  to over S00 per cent. All the signs  now point to veritable boom in real  mining and the wise ones, are already preparing for its advent which  must come in 'OS or '09.  THE B.C.

The average man, if asked to  .nauae, 'off hand, the uses of copper,  would be likely to say.;that the  metal was used mainly for.-'coining  pennies and making wire", yet these  uses employ barely ^more than a  quarter of-the copper that is pro:  duce'd. On second thought he  might smile at naming copper coin-  ago "as an important consumer of  the-metal, yet* his first thought  would be nearer right than his second, for the Chinese Empiro has  used fifty thousand tons of copper  for making new coins, within. the  past two yours, thereby increasing  the circulating niedium'of the country to the extent of. four ounces for  each' inhabitant���������for while, fifty  thousand.tons of copper is a large  quantity of metal, sufficient to load  a thousand freight ears of the heaviest type used on American railroads  it is but quarter of a pound avoirdupois per capita, when divided  among four hundred million people.  Only the expert, or those engaged  most actively iu the copper industry, Have'the slightest idea of "the  diversiiied'uses to which"copper' is  put, as shown by a chapter on the  uses of the metal in the new edition  of the Copper Handbook, published  by Horace J. Stevens, of Houghton  Michigan. According to this book  copper enters into almost every  form of human activity, and the  multiplicity of its uses "is most surprising.   .Electric light, power and |'of last week, and with inufiled feet  FfrF==5==^===:  Is tlie best, furnished hotel in tho Boundary  district.

The  engineering trades cciifiimo more  than half of all the copper produced,  mainly in the form of brass, but  there are about a score of friction  metals and alloys, into which copper enters as a component part.  The building trades aro enormous  .consumers of copper, and this sort  of consumption���������is .increasing rap-j  idly. Copper roofs, cornices, and  fronts'adorn the exteriors "of business buildings in thousands of  towns, while for interior work the  gteat majority of modern buildings  use copper, brass'or ��������� bronze locks,  knobs and butts. Brass pipes,  nickled, are in .modern bath-rooms  and lavatories, and brass and bronze  chandeliers, gas and electric fixtures are almost invariariable. A  dozen or more other user of copper  are mentioned."  In the m'auufacturing'world  the  uses of copper and brass are innumerable.    One concern in the Naug-  atuck valley of Connecticut buys  copper  in  ten-ton lots,   monthly,  solely for making, of watch-dials,  all of the better-grade dials being  of* copper,. enamelled.    The common pin requires hundreds of tons  of copper yearly, insignificant as a  single pin may seem.   Uals for shoes  and   tips for shoe   laces  require  metal by tho scores of  tons,   and  the thin metallic tips on  rubber-  tipped lead pencils are responsible  for a surprising depletion  in  tho  stock of the metal.  In addition to the consumption  of the metal itself, tens of thousands of tons of copper sulphate  aie required for the arts and manufactures, and for horticulture purr  poses, in spraying fruit trees,  bushes and vines.

Others carry  into business with them a strict  code os morals aiuKthey observe  their obligations whether compelled  to or not by jaw. Avery unusual  incident' happened in Chicago the  other day. A man who had been  forced into bankruptcy and had  paid HG cents on the dollar kept on  in his struggle for years rnd recently mailed checks to his creditors aggregating SGO.OOO. This  man lives in a small cottage wnich  he rents, and leads a frugal life.  The law had liberated him from  his obligations and his creditors  had no legal claims upon him, and  yet he felt that he had a moral ob-  igation to pay them even to the  last cent, and he stands erect again  with   his honor and   commercial  i  credit restored, for who would hesitate to trust a man so punctilious  to meet his moral obligations?

A modern"girl from New York,  he eaid, would not be apt to say ae  1 heard a girl say thirty years ago,  as she looked at a multitude of tadpoles in a pond.  Oh, look at the tadpoles! And  to think that someday every one of  those horrid wriggling things will  be a beautiful butterfly!  Get your old watch repaired or  or buy a new one  from  A. Logan  & Co. '_   Two Marseillaises were discussing the best method of eating game.  "Well, said one, if it is a woodcock, I hang it up on a nail by the  beak and fasten some larks on to  its claws. After a week I throw  away the woodcock and eat the  larks, which have by this time  absorbed all the favor of the woodcock.  I do the same, not to be outdone,  except that I throw away the larks  as well as the woodcock, and eat  the nail.  This civilization makes me think  sometimes that things are tending  toward the practice of the Golden  Rule. Yet how far away from it  we are. If among Christ's people,  with wealth in their hands, this  rule their inheritance toward the  advancement of was practiced; if  these people would devote tho kingdom, as Christ did, how far we  would advance along the true. line.  ���������Kev.
