New Road To Republic
The state road between Boyds
and Eepnblic will be open to traffic in ninety days. The Forestry
department is now clearing the
right-of-way and building bridges.
Ferry county will grade and complete the work.
This road, 29 miles in length,
will prove to be an inestimable
benefit to the people., Tbepresent
way to the get to Eepublic by railroad is around 95 miles. The
greatest benefit, however, lies in
the fact that a fine mining country
will be open for exploitation.
There are many prospects not far
from the state road that can now
be pushed to a working basis.

Oxe of the greatest  world  has ever known  years ago on Friday.  men  died  tho  12  Tue bursting of auto tires,' has  in recent years wonderfully stimulated the production of profanity  in America.  It is 100 in the shade and no  deaths. That is where the glorious west backs the cent belt over  the ice-box.  By TAY PAY  O'CONNOR  you get to the wild bustle of Vancouver, and there they  will take  you to a park with gigantic  trees,  with the greenest and  tho most  massive,   and  afc the flame time,  delicate ferns,   perhaps,    in   thc  world, and you imagine that this  is Lotus land in* comparison* with  what you have been seeing some  days   previously   in   that   other  British Columbia of gigantic and  snow-clad or mist-hidden   mountains.     Then   you   take   steamer  and go to Victoria, the capital of  the Island of Vancouver  and  the  political    capital,    though    some  hours from the mainland of the  great Province.     And thero you  find yourself in a city of dazzling  beauty���������of   indescribable   charm.  Perhaps the best impression I can  give of   Victoria is of a   Pacific  Venice���������it gives ,a suggestion  of  beautiful    placid    water     everywhere���������without the ago and history as yet thafc make Venice venerable,   but,  on the other, hand,  with vaster piles of beautiful buildings and with  the snowy  whiteness that comes from the  brilliant  sunshine and the newness of the  place.  An Arresting Personality   .  And as 1 neared the pier  which the steamer was to stop,  one of the winter months  of  at  in  last  how   as   July    12th    approached  every year tlie father bought and  the mother" tore  down from  the  wall the picture of William of Orange, and how, on the other hand,  the father treated in like fashion  the chromotype of the Pope which  the mother thought the fittest ornament of the home.    The elector  was   silenced,   amid   the    genial  laughter of the crowd.     And Mr.  McBride is the perfect amalgam of  these two contradictory types of  Irish life.    He has abounding toleration for men of all creeds, recognizes no . political  distinction  because of differences in   religious  faith, and  with equal grace and  general   acceptance   attends   the  bazaar for the Catholic Church and  the opening of the Baptist chapel.  And in his character   there   are  blended the stern strength  of the  Ulster Orangeman and  the genial  softness of the   Catholic   mother  from Minister.  It is one of the secrets of Mr.  McBride's unique hold over his  people that he belongs to them in  every nerve of his being.

Just now the ice man is king,  and he may be next winter if the  coal man does not lay in some  carbon for the days when the thermometer hides in the cellar.  It will bo 50 years ago to-morrow since the battle of Bull's Eun  made Washington shudder. All  the soldiers who fought in that  amateur battle seem to have disappeared although we hav.e met  about 3,000 officers who took part  in the unpleasant engagement.  It is difficult to reckon what the  end will be of the continual struggle between labor and capital.  T. L., Lewis, until recently president of the United Mine "Workers  of America evidently views with  alarm the future of the war between labor and capital. In retiring from office he declared that  the organization of which ho had  been the head was gradually drifting into the control of the men  with ho sense of justice, no regard  for wage contracts, and no scruple  as to how to retain power. This  is to be regretted for when honor  dies we might as well fill our hair  with feathers, and mingle with the  Indians in the bush.  Too Lenient  A Tecent case  in   one   of  the  smaller towns of the interior where,-  in a person convicted of a violation  of the Bush  Fire Act��������� in having  utilized fire in land clearing without first securing the necessary permit in this behalf���������pleaded ignorance of the law and escaped, upon  conviction,  with a warning from  the bench,  may be taken  as an  object  lesson for the  benefit  of  rural magistrates and jnstices of  the peace throughout the province.  It is no nnnsual thing for these  minor judges to exceed their jurisdiction, and this what was done in  the case in question.    For the benefit of all magistrates and peace  officers, as well as the general public, it may be stated that no judge  in the land has power upon a conviction being recorded under the  Bush Fires Act to exercise such-  discretion as to relieve the convicted party of the payment of the  penalty.    The   law   prescribes  a  minimum fine of fifty dollars, and  this must be imposed.   Any suspicion of sentence may only legally  be permitted with the express concurrence   and    authority   of  the  Attorney-general's department.  Tonight an influential gathering  of the powerful men in finance and  politics who are interested in the  development of British Columbia  will meet to do honor.at a banquet  to the Hon. Bichard McBride, the  Prime Minister of that Province.  To all men iu his Province, to all  Canadians, he is known by the  less official and formal title of  "Dick" McBride. And very appropriately Mr. McBride belongs  to tbat order of popular political  figures to whom the masses instinctively show at once respect  and affection by preffering to call  them by their abbreviated Christian name rather than by formal  aud cold prose of their official title  and their full Christian surname.  First let me try to make my  reader realize the mighty country  of which Mr. McBride is and has  been now for nearly a decade, the  controlling force. ��������� British Columbia comes upon you as a mighty  and    most    affrighting    surprise.  For days, perhaps weeks, you have  been passing through  the   ocean  prairie of.the great Province  of  Saskatchewan,   where  night"* and  day you look out on  that tremendous   expanse    of    flat,    yellow-  grassed, black-soiled fields that in  the latter part of the year will  be  thousands of miles of waving corn.  But tbe flatness, unbroken to the  horizon, and unrelieved by even a  hillock or a tree, begins in the end  to pall and even depress you, and  in the winter time you cannot -well  visualize the opulent - eplendor of  this  flat yellow and black landscape that stretches before you  to  lengths as illimitable as the spheres.  In Alberta the landscape begins to  be relieved by the ranch farms and  the sight of frequent houses and  human faces, and horses and cattle; but there, also, you have the  illimitable flatness for many long  stretches of miles'until you  begin  to see  in   the   far   distance   the  mountains.  But in Alberta the mountains  still look small���������they are not. but  distance makes them look so:  And then you wake up from your  disturbed slumber in  the railway  year, I saw there for tho first time  for several years the remarkable  man   who   is   thc   ruler   of   this  mighty countiy.    Afc once and as  my first impression there came the  idea thafc there was something singularly  appropriate  in  the . man  and the countiy he rules.     Like  the countiy itself, Mr. McBride is  massive.    I should say he is over  six feet high; he has shoulders so  broad that even a professional athlete might envy them���������a chest of  great breadth  and depth,  and a  physique altogether that is striking  and imposing���������I might say dominating.    From any crowd of men,  however big,   this   figure   would  stand  forth  in   conspicuous   and  haunting relief; you would find it  difficult to keep your eyes off him.  And the face and head are as striking as the splendidly and broadly  proportioned body.     The faco is  massive but short and round.    It  is typically Irish  in  its  features,  but instead of tho typically rubicund complexion of the men  and  women of the Emerald Isle, it has  the pallor���������healthy but pallid  all  the same���������of those who live in the  severer climate of the New "World.  The head is again massive and,  surmounted by a mane of thick,  snow-white hair,   it makes   even  his   professional training,   he has  Words are the only things God  never hears in a prayer.  train, and as in a flash you will  find yourself transported to a region where all around you gigantic  mountains, with tops either enveloped in frowning mist "or covered  with eternal snow, look down on  you, and excite and seem even to  menace, you.    You wind in aud  out over bridges that seem like spider-attempts to crawl through the  narrow spaces left by these terrible  circumambient      and      frowning  mountains; you are continually in  the deafening roar of great rivers  falling precipitously down   rocky  beds,   or   sudden   waterfalls���������in  ,short, you are in the midst of natural scenery as beautiful,  as solemn, and as affrighting as the region of Zermatt and the Matter-  horn.  And then in time you make  your escape from this region of  mystery and terror, and by and by  you begin to feel on your cheek  the soft breezes of the sea, You  are approaching the Pacific, and as  you approach it you become conscious of an entire transformation  in   your  environment.      Finally  more striking tho personal appearance.  There is at first a ��������� curious resemblance to the head of Sir  Wilfrid  Laurier���������the same complexion, the same massiveness of head,  the same inane of white  hair,   but  the resemblance  is not as   great  when you  examine tho two men  more closely.    Sir Wilfrid Laurier  has the long thin faco of the typical Frenchman���������indeed  tho   Dominion   Premier always looks to  me as if he walked out of a portrait of the noblesse of France in  tho days before  the   Eevolution.  Mr. McBride has the short face,  massive head and the thick hair of  the Celt of the West.     Analyzing  still further the face and  features  of the figure of tho great British  Columbian, you seo curious contradictions with the impression of  athletic massiveness.   Tho mouth  is small, the deep-set eyes are soft  brown,   the fret and   hands   are  small���������there are delicacy,   sensitiveness, a certain artistic element  in this big, massive man as well as  strength.     And,  above   all,    the  dominating    impression     is      of  strength thafc is at the same time  tho simplicity, the geniality,   and  the comradship of that true democratic sentiment you find in these  new   countries,    where   men    all  start from small beginnings before  they reach to wealth and power.  Great Religious Tolerance  The ancestry of the man   will  supply you with the explanation of  the apparent contradictions in  his  physique, and the different factors  that make up the powerful and  attractive    personality.       Asked  once by an importunate elector as  to his special religious views���������for  they have some faint echoes even  in far British Columbia of the racial and religious feuds of our Old  World, aud especially of that part  of it which lies within the frontiers of Ireland���������Mr. McBride  described with great humor,how his  father was an Orangeman from the  lived almost every hour of his life  in his own province and among his  own people.    And he is never out  of touch with them or with their  outlook on things.    Any day you  can  see him in Victoria, moving  easily among the people, saluting  every man he meets, for he knows  them all, or seated in the vestibule  in the beautiful Canadian Pacific  hotel over a cup of tea, talking  easlily ond familiarly to everyone  who comes to join the circle.    He  is the ruler with something of the  Cadi in his methods and manners.  Some nine or ten years ago Mr.  McBride was leader of the Opposition, resisting a great Railway Bill.  At the eud of a teriffic fight extending over months, the ministry  was defeated, and  Mr.   McBride  was called by the whole voice of  the country to take up its government.    He started with what was  a surprising aud in many quarters  an  unwelcome   transformation of  the political life of the country.  Hitherto ministries   had   been   a  collection of men of different parties  ���������a personal rather than a'political  combination.   Mr.    McBride    resolved that this was an unhealthy  method of governing representative  institutions,   and   he   substituted  party for personal government; or  in other   words,   government   by  party   instead ��������� of government   by  faction.  Empire's Youngest Premier  He was just a little over 30 years  of age when he reached this great  position���������the youngest Prime Minister in the whole British Empire.  He has held office for nine, years  since,    The extent of his power.is  best'realized when it is said that  of the 42 members of the legislature 3S aro his supporters.    Of the  remaining  four two are   Liberals  and two are Labor men, and the  Labor men are found in his lobby  at least as often as in the opposite.  In these years   he has   achieved  wonders for his Province.    Looked  at with suspicion when he started  ho appealed in  vain to financiers  and bankers for ussistance in financing the Province; now he is independent of them all.    Tho Province has made such progress that  today it stands in as high a financial position as any country in the  Empire.  Everywhere you see manifestations of the indomitable energy of  the man.    The illimitable resources  of the vast country are being developed with feverish energy and  under the guidance of a man who  knows by personal travel   almost  every inch of the vast territory.  His last and most ambitious project is the foundation of a British  Columbia  University,   which   he  means to   make as to endowment  and as to professorship the equal  of any  university in   the world.  Again and again the Conservative  party of the Dominion have asked  him to leave his Province and take  his place  on the greater stage of  the  Dominion in the Parliament  Baggage transferred to  any part of the City.

Eiblet,  American cousular agent   at   Nelson.  With the issuance of the announce-  . ment comes also an invitation to  Great Britain and Canada to participate.     Delegates from   London  and Ottawa will be in attendance.  The congress will be held   on  September 18 to October next, conjointly with the first International  Municipal Congress and   Exposition in Chicago.    It is under the  auspices of   the   National   Good  Roads Association,   of which  the  British consul general at Chicago,  Horace D. Nugents is an honorary  secretary.    In the confident belief  that a- general discussion of the  road and street problem from every  point of .view by delegates from  different sections of the   United  States and from all other nations  will prove in the highest degree  helpful, the association desires to,  interest every municipal officer on  .the continent, and all persons interested  in   the  cause   of    good  streets and roads .in the meeting,  which is called for the last of September.  The appointment of delagates is  invited by the officials of   every  county,  state and city,   and   by  agricultural,     automobile,     commercial, educational,  good roads,  industrial,   labor,    transportation  and women's organizations in such  numbers as each may  determine.  The   names   of   such    delegates  should be forwarded to the headquarters of the congress, Hotel La  Salle, " Chicago,   as   soon   as   appointed.    Information in regard to  the congress and exhibition will be  gladiy furnished interested parties,  if  application   is  made    to    the  American cousular * agent at Nelson.  In calling this congress the association says: The production of  permanent public streets and roads  is one of the most important problems of the century, affecting the  material and social well being of  all classes and conditions of people. The development of the .motor vehicle has   done   much   to  bring about such changed conditions as to demand the best  thought and experience of road experts, and to focus public attention  on the need for better roads.  When the agricultural production of the American continent  alone is over a hundred billion of  dollars, and it cosfcsr more to take  this product from tlie farm to the  railway station than from Buch  station to the American and European markets, and -when the saving in cost of moving this product  of agriculture over good highways  instead of bad, would have built a  million mileB' of good roads, the  incalculable waste of bad roads is  shown to be of such enormous proportions as to demand immediate  reformations, and the wisest and  best statesmanship.  Great as is the loss to transportation, mercantile,-industrial and  farming interests, incomparably  greater is the loss to women and  children, and social life, a matter  as important as (civilization itself.  The truth of the declaration of  Charles Sumner fifty years ago.  "that the two greatest forces for  the advancement of civilization  are the school teacher and good  roads" is emphasized by the experience of the intervening years,  and points to the wisdom of a  union of all the elements of all  nations in aggressive action for  permanent roads and streets.

E.,'  the original owner of the properties  exploited and the principal member of the company   directorate,  "skipped the countiy;" while M.  E. Gilbert,  M. E.,  the managing  director, is at present in Eestern  Crnada.     The   three    remaining  members of the board��������� Frank C.  Stevenson, A. E. Jacks and Alexander Smith,  all of Vancouver-  urged that they had  unwittingly  offended,  the 'prospectus   having  been    prepared   and    issued    by  Wangamott without their cognizance.   The company,  it may be  parenthetically    mentioned,    had  been recently formed and duly registered with a capitalization of $1,-  000,000 in $1 shares, to acquire by  purchase from Mr.'Wangamott the  Saddle Rock, Saddle   Rock No.  3  and .Kile No. 5 mineral claims on  Red Hill, Steamboat Mountain.  The prospectus issued, allegedly  by Mr. Wangamott, contains numerous statements ostensibly of fact  which have been challenged as untruthful and calculated to deceive  the prospective purchaser of stock.  This did not, however, enter into  the proceedings just taken, which  were confined to the offense of issuing a prospectus not filed  with  the registrar.   For this, exceedingly  heavy penalties may be imposed;  while the law as it now appears on  the provincial statute book   prescribes as well that every director  of a company is personally liable  for the contents of a prospectus  with which his name is connected,  and for compensation,  if such is  claimed, .to   all   subscribers   for  shares in the full .amount of any  loss or damage suffered by   them  in consequence of misleading prospectus statements.  For default in the filing of the  prospectus with the registar, the  company and every person identified therewith are liable to penalties of $25 per day from the date  of the first issue of the unfiled prospectus until its filing with the prescribed provincial official.

The opening up of the Fitzgerald  mine will once more bring Granite  Creek into the limelight.  About 1000 tons of soil has been  shipped from tho Tulameen  diamond belt to Ottawa for analysis.  Mining around Fairview is quiet  this summer.  For i-J 3'ears Dan Eoss of Granite Creek has owned several good  claims near the summit of the  Hope mountains.  Disappointed prospectors from  the Steamboat camp are now packing their blankets to the headwaters of Granite and Tulameen  creeks.  Princeton is an ideal site for a  smelter.  J. Thompson, a diamond prospector from South Africa, accompanied by his Boer wife are investigating the diamond field near  Tulameen. [  Walter T. Beam has taken a two  months bond on Billy Pool's celebrated mine, the Nugget of Sheep  creek.  Experts do not consider that the  new diamond field in the Tulameen will pay to work. However,  experts sometimes make mistakes.  here and take the chances of  Yukon being quarantined against  by Alaska.  Since coming here Mr. White  spent nearly every day at his mine,  the Pueblo, where everything is in  readiness for operating at any time  he sees fit to start the machinery,  and tliere^ is a strong probability  that there will be something doing  in the near future.  Colonel J. H. Conrad spent several days here recently and did not  hesitate to- declare^ that he will  erect a reduction works for ore at  this place if sufficient ore is guaranteed by Mr. TVhite and other  mine owners of this locality. In  the event of the erection of a reduction plant here, the output of  the Conrad mines from the Car-  cross district would also be treated  here.���������White Horse Star.

So much handling of the coke depreciates the value of it for smelting purposes on account of it breaking up so, and the company have  decided to order a test shipment  by rail in order to see the difference  in shape in which the coke arrives  at the works.  'Regarding the raising of the  power rates by the Kooteuay Power  Co., an official of the Granby stated  to the Gazette yesterday that a  temporary adjustment of the  trouble,had been made for thirty  days. The present contract between the smelter company and  the power company expires on  Tuesday next, but with the extension of time it is anticipated that  the two companies will be able to  come to some mutual agreement in  order to enable the smelter company to operate their large reduction works in this city.���������Grand  Forks Gazette.

As  soon as he could jar loose from  the Lunnou mob, he trecked for  the open country* and is now  nursing the sore spots, on the  banks of the Avon. It was the  largest crowd Tom ever dovetailed into, and was a tight fit  . all over. He sends three illustrated papers, in which tinseled  dukes,   dagos,    Slaves,   Turks,  A Slow Road  The  Quesnel   Observer   says:  W, McLaren, who with Geo.  Woods has been engaged taking  the census between Fort George  and  the Yellowhead   Pass,    returned   to   town   on    Tuesday.  The   trip, from   Tete    Jaune  Cache to Fort George was made  in ten days.    Mr. McLaren s-ays  that a new G. T.   P.  camp was  pitched ten miles from the Cache  two weeks ago.   .This is the advance guard.    Some heavy rock  cuts are to be made east of there  yet.   The work is going on very  slowly,  and the sub-contractors  are objecting to  the   dragging  policy of Foley, Welch & Stewart.      At   the  present   rate   of  progress, it will probably be this  fall before the steel reaches the  snmmit, a year more before  the  Cache is connected,   and   three  years  before Fort   George   will  have steel communication.  a number of years, I do not think  I am over estimating when I say  40,000 men will be required to  harvest this 200,000,000 bushel  crop that seems to be in" sight this  year.  "The increased wheat area   in  Saskatchewan, alone represents in  round numbers 1.000,000 acres and  tho startling and interesting feature about this is that the indefinitely greater portion is in the northeastern,   northwestern   and   west  central portions   of the province.  In addition the province of Saskatchewan will show an increase in  oats of about 300,000 acres.    The  eastern part of the province shows  a slight decrease in wheat acreage  but a very large increase in oats  aud flax.    Another striking feature  is that 80 per cent, of the increased  acreage is in those parts where the  new   settlers   have   gone   to this  year."  The   question   is:   Where   are  these   forty   thousand   harvesters  coming from?   Eastern Canada has  a good crop of her own and cannot  possibly spare half that number of  men.    The mere fact that harvest  in the west will be ten days earlier  than usual checks the eastern supply as the east will then be in the  full tide of its own harvest.    The  Grand Trunk Pacific and Canadian  Northern are known to be looking  for men south of the international  boundary line but it seems that  Great Britain will have to supply  many thousand men if the wheat  crop of 200,000,000 bushels is to be  safely garnered.

While  the battleships of onr navy will for  the   present be prepared to   burn  either coal or oil, as loading facilities dictate,  it does not take a  prophet to foretell   the  eventual  passing of the.stoke-hole and the  stoker.    It has been said by experts  thafc storage of at least twelve million barrels would be necessary before the administration could safely  make tho  change,   but,   large as  that amount may sound, there is  little reason to doubt that it can  be supplied and maintained indefinitely just as soon as the proper  transportation    facilities    fco   sea  board can be provided.   These im  provements are being made jusfe as  fast-as money and brains can accomplish the work  and within a  year or two there will be enough  oil fuel in sight.and easily available to convince all.men and administrations that we in California  can "deliver the goods.!'   It may  not be long until the coal burners  of tho ships of our navy are relegated to the junk" pile,- and even  before that day comes all the railroads that can draw from the Pacific Coast will forsake the coal and  the dust for oil, and a maximnni of  travelling comfort;.
