C. ���������An analysis of  the causes operating to   produce  forest fires, by which to date  the  citizens of British Columbia have  lost   probably     $80,000.000���������last  year alone the direct loss and cost  of protection aggregated $859,915���������  shows that  next   to  carelessness  with camp-fires, similarly cz-iminal  carelessness in the   operation   of  donkey engines in logging camps  is largely responsible for the yearly worse than waste.     In connection with this particular phase of  the lamentable carelessness which  has proven and is proving so expensive to the people of British  Columbia, it would be well indeed  for everyone in any way identified  with  the lumbering industry    to  note just what the legally   pre-  sribed regulations are which govern the operation of donkey engines in logging   camps.     These  read as follows:  Any person or persons using or  operating a donkey engine in connection with logging operations  shall see that all brush and inflammable matter is removed for a  spade of not less than fifty (50)  feet on all sides thereof.  There shall be available at each  donkey engine in use during the  dry season a supply of water of  not less than four hundred (-������00)  gallons, such amount to bo obtainable at all. times therein; together  with twelve (12) large galvanized-  iron buckets to be kept exclusively for fire protection purposes, and  in a convenient position therefor:  There shall also be available and  kept solely for fire-protection purposes six (6) good shovels and  three (3) good mattocks, and located in a suitable position therefor;  In addition to the a,b.ovc, there  shall be available at such donkey  ley, died in England last month  -���������- ������ ,       r* j    '  The Herald was the name of the  first paper printed in Vancouver.

It comes to the front every Thursday morning, and  believes that hell would close up if love ruled the world. 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 thelife of trade; and that one of the noblest works of  creation is the man who always pays the printer.  The Ledge is $2.00 a year in advance, or S2.S0 when not so paid.  It is postage free to all parts of Canada, Mexico, Great Britain and  thc county of Bruce. To the United States it is $2.50 a year, always  in advance.  R.   T.   LOWERY  EDITOR    AND    FINANCIER.  GREENWOOD,   JULY   13,   1911.

It is reported in Fernie that  Jonnie-Behind-The-Deuce has not  yet sold his Sand creek claims to  the G-uggs.  In the east this month hundreds  of people have died from the heat.

The party  will arrive in New York on the  2Sth of July and it is expected  they will reach Vancouver on the  21st of August, after which they  will visit both Hazelton and the  Portland Canal.  Mr. Marriott it will be remembered represented with Mr. William  Frecheville the Institute of Mining and Metallurgy on the summer  excursion of the Canadian Mining  Institute in 1908. The representatives of the various Mining Institutions of Europe and America,  at that time, were taken across the  continent and shown the principal  places of interest.  A Serious Condition  Winnipeg ��������� Startling    figures  old mining statute which is still  among the laws of tho United  Kingdom, but which has not been  enforced for hundreds of years  past. According to this" statute,  in the realms over which the king  of England is sovereign, all .gold  mines belong to the crown, as does  also tho gold produced from other  mines.  Accordingly, there is in circulation today $204,286,000 of gold  mined in the British dominions in  1910, to which King GcoVgc is legally empowered to lay claim.  Correspondingly, too, ho is entitled  to several billions of dollar of gold  mined in British South Africa and  West Africa, Australasia, India,  British East Indies "and Guiana,  Canada, etc., in the past hundred  years or more, during which time  the Crown has neglected to assert  its statutory rights.  It seems safe to assume that  never in the future will these statutory rights be asserted. The upheaval of tho British Empire would  bo almost certain. The opposition  of the colonies would be enormous  as well as concerted, for manifest  reasons; nor would the opposition  in England itself be less pronounced, considering that hundreds of  millions of dollars of coal aud iron,  machinery, food products and clothing aro shipped annually to British  mining colonies, and that this  trade would be deleteriously affected .  The statute is a relic of medieval ages. It was in those days  considered that the possession of  the sources of gold in any other  hands than those of the sovereign  would be a continual and threatening source of danger to the king  and to the safety of tbe nation.  Today, the greatest source of danger to any nation would lie in concentrating in the hands of its executive a yearly output of gold as  colossal as is that of the British  dominions,' amounting indeed, in  1910, to 5S per cent, of the gold  output of the entire world.  Lincoln, who was himself a Southerner, can claim equality with the  Southern generals and statesman,  of whom Robert Toombs, Albert  Sidney Johnston, Jefferson Davis,  Robert E. Lee, and Stonewall Jackson are types.  The blackest chapters and vilest  deeds of United States history belong to the period of Republican ascendancy, 1865-1SS0. In their occupation of the Southern States the  Northern troops, many of them  foreign mercenaries, indulged in a  carnival of devastation, pillage,  outrage and murder, which would  The"car-  Sin'ce the coal strike became  aged the editor of the Fernie Free  Press is writing upon the value of  wild strwberries as a pleasant diet  easily obtained.  I>* some towns the people appreciate and help a good local  paper. In other towns the opposite  course is pursued which shows that  some people are short on the right  kind of education.  JUSTICE  WAS TOO   STERN  The women of Canada debated  the subject of   the   sentence   of  ��������� death imposed upon Angelina Na-  politana, the woman whose execution is postponed until after her  child is born, and decided to ask  for pardon.    What man or woman  will not approve the petition?    It  does seem too cruel.     It is not  much to forego this life, if we have  nothing here to love and leave behind.    What is more loved than a  new-born   child?       What    more  heartless, more vicious, more barbarous than to tear a mother, away  from her new-born child and exact  her life at a rope's end to compensate justice for the killing of a depraved husband,   who beat   her,  who would  have sent   her   into  white slavery?     Justice  in   this  case, is too stern.    Wise men debate the justice of capital punishment in any case.    Mercy argues,  pleads against it in this instance.  The desk of the governor-general  is loaded  with letters petitioning  for pardon.    Why not add yours?  Visit of Mining Men  Louis Reyersbach, Managing  Director, and Hugh F. --Marriott,  Consulting Engineer of the Central Mining and Investment Corporation of London, England, will  visit this country in August.  This corporation has recently taken over and consolidated with  their own the interests of Messrs  Wernher, Beit & Company and  Messrs Eckstein & Company, the  largest operators in Kimberly  and the South African Rand.  These gentlemen are making a  tour of Canada, commencing in  New Brunswick, and will visit the  moat interesting mining localities  were given by W.  B.   Lanagan,  assistant freight traffic manager of  the   Canadian   Pacific     Railway.  He pointed out that   the   three  western provinces are not doing  I their duty and-that the farmers do  not realize the seriousness of the  conditions   in    which    they    are  placing themselves, for vast quantities of foodstuffs are being imported from  the East,   from   the  United  States and from   abroad.  "Last year," he said,   "one firm  alone shipped in 1,000 cars of packing house products to supply the  urban cities of the West.      In the  same year $10,000,000 worth   of  horses were brought into Western  Canada from  the United  States.  Again, between 200, and 300 carloads of mutton were shipped in  for the mining camps of British  Columbia, and a good deal of this  came to Winnipeg.     Also during  the past winter months Winnipeg  imported from Dakota and Minnesota $10,000 worth of milk.     Another point to be remembered is  that vegetables for Winnipeg and  other cities in the West are daily  imported  from Chicago and   the  Twin Cities,  and   potatoes - consumed as far west as Revelstoke  are shipped from as  far   east   as  Prince Edward   Island.      Again,  fresh beef is being imported daily,  killed in the abattoirs of Toronto  and no less than seven  carloads  were brought in one day last week.  In other words, Manitoba,  which  boasts of its agricultural wealth,  does not produce the stuff to feed.  its own cities, and even the'farmers themselves arc buying   farm  products.     Eggs,  butter,    cheese  and honey are imported from  On.  tario, Wisconsin and as far south  as California.    The province has  devoted itself to grain growing until in the older settled portions  of  the country woods are choking out  the products.   Stations which formerly shipped a million   bushels  of grain during a season have now  dropped to between 100,000 and  200,000 bushels, while the acreage  remains the same.    On  the other  hand there is no province where  the land is more fertile and   the  opportunities as advantageous as  in Manitoba, -where  Winnipeg is  supplying an ever ready market  for all farm products."  The Civil War  King George's Gold Mines  The approaching coronation in  London, with its medieval pomp,  and the relics of the ceremonies of  by-gone ages, brings to mind an  A last word on slavery and the  American Civil War in their relation to our times.  Industrially,    this   war   was   a  struggle between cotton and iron,  in  which iron prevailed; between  slave labor and   wage   labor,   in  which  the latter emerged victorious; between the planters of the  South and the manufactures of the  north,  of whom the latter   were  bent on destroying slavery, not in  the interest of the negro, who was  as a rule  much   better off   than  many of their own employees, but  in order to secure their own commercial and political supremacy by  destroying  tbe foundation of the  power of their Southern rivals.  Tbe war had its specific origin in  the refusal of the Northern States to  observe their constitutional obligations. Slaves were recognized and  taxed as lawful property by the  Government at Washington. Yet  the Republican leaders denied tho  plain right of Southern settlers to  carry their slaves with them into  the (then) territories of Kansas,  Colorado, etc., for fear that new  slave States would spring up in addition to those already existing.  The Northern State authorities also  evaded the cause of the constitution and their own oaths binding  them to return fugitive slaves to  their masters in the South!  It may be that slavery exerted a  vitiating   influence   on    Southern  whites; but some of the arguments  in support of this view are lamentably weak.    Gold win   Smith has  cited the horrors of Andersouville  and other Southern military prisons  as proof of the inhuman temper of  the slave holders.    He omits   to  state that the North, not the South  were responsible for the horrors of  Andersouville.     The    refusal   of  Lincoln's Secretary of War to exchange   prisoners   compelled   the  South, who could not feed or clothe  her own soldiers at the front, to  help the Northern prisoners as best  she   could.    In Northern   prisons  Southern soldiers were tortured and  exposed  naked  to   the   Winter's  cold and snow.  The "demoralization" of the  South may be inferred from the  following facts:���������  1. Throughout tho war the  slaves never rose.  2. On nearly all tho great battle-fields of tho war, the Southern  armies outnumbered in the great  majority of cases, inflicted heavier  loses than they sustained.  3. In character and ability none  of tho  Northern   leaders,  except  have disgraced savages,  pet-bag" Governments set up in  tbe South were a further means of  draining the wealth of the1, conquered territory into the pockets of  a horde of political vampires and  leaving it crushed beneath a load  of debt.    And vile iusult was added to deadly   injury   when   the  eulogists'of Northern treachery and  barbarity, enabled by success,   to  gain the ear of thc world, buried  the facts of the Civil War beneath  an avalanche of foolish, vindictive  and slanderous falsehoods, as, for  example, that Jefferson Davis was  disguised in women's clothes when  taken  prisoner���������falsehoods which  the ignorant and credulous still believe.  If it asked, "What has all this  to do   with our own times?" the  answer is found in the results of  the   Civil   War.    Negro  slavery,  which   would havo gradually disappeared in any event, was swept  away at   a   stroke;   and   various  forms of white servitude took its  place.    Honest Northern abolitionists, Horace Greeley and Wendell  Phillips among others, wore themselves out in vain struggles against  Republican   corruption   and    injustice after tbe war; and had Lincoln lived he would have led them  in their fruitless efforts."   A school  of commercial aud financial adventurers, of whom  Jay Gould   and  Jim Fisk were prototypes, sprang  up,   and still flourishes;   aud  tbe  adulation of   religious   hypocrites  throws a halo over their machinations.    The negro, for whose freedom (as such, hyprocrites said) the  war was waged, []was   in   reality  evicted from home,  and made a  social outcast, while still remaining  a political nonentit}', as he is today.  And while the lot of the Southern  black  was made worse, tho wage  laborers of the North has steadily  sunk in the social scale since then.  Today in America thegulf between  rich   and   poor   steadily   widens.  Legislation tends  more and more  to  .extend    the   prerogatives   of  wealth and restrict or abolish the  rights of all who do not possess it.  The agitation in favor of prohibition will serve to show how history  repeats itself. Prohibition has been  the dream of sincere. moral and  religious zealots,   however" tained  with   hyprocrisy it may have become.    Such  another   dream��������� was  the abolition of slavery.   Abolition  became a tool in the hands of unscrupulous politicaDS, who used it  again the negro, not for him.  Prohibition   today is   engineered   by  American capitalists as a means of  gradually reducing the American  laborer's   standard of living���������and  with it his rate of wages���������to that  of the Chinese cooiie.    And this  same power in the United States,  which brazenly exacted the "Alabama" claims from England's neutrality and its own  violation   of  Canadian territory is in its cow  ardly blundering, insane and swin  ieh greed, and shameless worship  of wealth, cunning, and brute force  a   standing, menace   to   Canada  From its dealings with its own citizens in the Southern States wo  may judge how it may deal with  Canada if vigilance and courage  fail us.

This is the  answer that took the prize:  'To be a lady means, lightly, to  bo a gentlewoman who shows by  her every word and action a sweet  and gentle dignity, with a gracious charm of manner; a woman  whose heart is pure and true, who  is tender toward all suffering, who  sympathizes with those in trouble  and is ever ready with that which  costs her some effort and self-denial. A' lady thinks no work  derogatory, and no one is deemed  too'low to. receive courtesy and  kindness. She is pure and good  in every detail of life,' a , true  friend and a "ministering angel"  in sorrow and in sickness.  &  V.  fc  In  fc*  fe  fe  fe  fe  fe  fe  fe  fe;  fe  *���������*  %  *>  CO., I/^D.

Popularity in a leader or teacher  often means that,he has sufficiently falsified his inner Vision to  make it look like a chromo.

The truest mark of His  present divinity is that those institutions which claim to represent  Him are so far from comprehending Him.  HAVE YOUR PHOTO TAKEN  . ���������: by���������-  ���������  J.

Railways in Saskatchewan  Kegiha���������The Leader publishes  the following summary of the  railway construction in the province:  Saskatchewan is witnessing today the greatest railway development any section of the world has  ever known. Over one thousand  miles of new railway track will be  constructed in Saskatchewan this  year;  Last year Saskatchewan led all  the provinces of the Dominion  with a total of 475 miles.  The 0. N. R. is constructing 330  miles. The G. T. P. is constructing 340 miles. The 0. P. E. is  constructing 348 miles.  The activity of all three great  trans-continental lines centers at  Regina.  The longest single stretch of  railway being constructed is 100  miles. About 1,300 miles of new  grading will be done this-year.  Total construction for this year is  almost one half as great as in the  preceding live years. At the end  of this year there will be 4,752  miles of track in Saskatchewan. '  According to tbe best information obtainable, the following list  of lines will be constructed by the  various railways this year, unless  something compels the railways to  change their plans:  By the C. N". R.���������Aylesbury  westward to Davidson, 15 miles;  Battleford-Jackfish line, 40 miles  to be laid.  Thunder Hill extension, 70  miles .west of Manitoba; Delisle  branch from Goose Lake line, 85  miles.  Moose Jawt southeast 100 miles.  Rossburn extension, 20 miles.  Shelbrook line, 50 miles.  This makes a total of O. N. R.  construction of S30 miles this year.  By the Grand Trunk Pacific  railroad���������Melville to Regina, 70  miles; Battleford to Biggar, 50  miles; Regina to Boundary line,  90 miles; Regina to Moose Jaw, 40  miles; Young Prince Albert, 90  miles; Moose Jaw northwest line  will be gone on with.  This makes a total of G. T. P.  construction this year of 34Q  miles.  By   the  O.    P.    R.���������Outlook,  northwest, GO miles;  Craven  Col-  onsay, ��������� 05 miles;   Weyburn-Leth-  bridge, 20 miles; Estevan forward  35; R^gina-Bulyea, 10 miles; Lauder extension,  20  miles;   second  track from Moose Jaw to Pasqua,  7 miles; second track ��������� from -Moose  Jaw to Cat-on,  16 miles;   Moose  Jaw,   northwest 35 miles;   Swift  Current southeast, for 45   miles;  Swift Current northwest   for  miles.

A Big Work i  The Northern Construction Company and P.

This post that had brought the snow of age to ho heads of  strong men and had evon killed some of them in'the ilerce days of the-"Land  League," was given to this young, gentle, easy-going individual.

It is expected that three  weeks hence  will see  the   work  started at various points between  Hope and Kamloops.    At the outset large numbers of men can not  be employed so advantageously as  later on.    Within less than three  months, however, seven thousand  men will be required as it is proposed to finish the entire contracts  within two years.   Vancouver will  be headquarters for hiring labor  and. purchasing    supplies.   This  will represent an expenditure there  of hundred of thousands of dollars  monthly, and figures running into  millions annually.  In all tunnels aggregating over  three miles in length will have to  be driven. The two longest will be  one 2,000 feet near Yale'and another of 2,400 feet through Battle  Bluff, Kamloops Lake. There  will'be many other tunnels ranging  in length from 200 to 700 feet.  The big tunnels will be driven  by machinery, the plants working  from   both   porta,ls.    The smaller  tunnels will Ue driven by hand.   It  is expected that two years at least  will be occupied in completing the  big bore at Battle Bluff; ih fact the  date of the completion of tho entire   division will hinge upon tho  driving of the two long tunnels.  It is noteworthy that all the subcontractors own their own outfits,  showing   their capacity for handling big contracts.   They will also  operate   their own com missionary  stores.   The  heavy character   of  the work is said to offer exceptionally opportunities to station men,  individual spaall seotjons of rock  work  ranging   from one to three  hundred feet,    It is the intention  of the various contractors to farm  out a good deal of the work that  way.    The station men usually hire  their own labor.    A small army of  them  are now looking for "fat"  station   along the   route, it being  their custom to follow the fortunes  of tho bigger operators.  minerai/act.  Certificate of Improvements.

THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA'  BOUNDARY MINES  Over 320,000 tons of copper ore  have beon smelted in Greenwood  thus far in 1911.  Work is steadily progressing in  tho long tunnel on the E: P. U.  They still have over a hundred  feet to go before the ore body is  expected.  0.   B.  Smith,  manager   of   the  Phoenix mines of the Granby Co.,  is tho newly appointed general superintendent of the companies Hid-  den Creek and Phoenix properties.  Diamond drilling is to be done  on   the- Montezuma   and   Sunset  mines, of the New Dominion Cop-  , per  Co.,   in order   to thoroughly  prospect their orebodios with the  object of putting them on tho shipping list.  Over half a million tons of ore  was shipped from the Granby  mines during tho first six months  . of 1911, while the Mother Lode  camo second with 100,000 tons and  the Rawhido third with 104,000  tons.  Something over 100 tons of ore  aro being treated by tho mill at the  Napoleon  mine   daily.    This   ore  passes throngh a stamp battery and  over plates,   where a part of the  gold  is amalgamated.    The   pulp  then passes through a tube mill, is  ground much finer, and goes to the  cyanide vats, where the remaining  gold is extracted.    The plant is doing very satisfactory work.  During the nine month's of the  Consolidated  Mining   & Smelting  Co's fiscal year ending April 1st, a  total of 309,070 tons of ore were received at the company's smelter at  Trail; 262,315 tons being from the  company's    mines    in    Phoenix,  Bossland and the Slocan, and the  balance customs ore from various  silver-lead   properties.     The   ore  smelted had an approximated gross  value of 83,334,000 in gold, silver,  lead and copper.  I   B. C. MINING NEWS  3* HC  'fr'ftgS'^'^S&'S'������''^'^^^^  Fourteen men are employed on  the coal property of the United  Empire Co., Ltd., located near  Princeton.  On the No. 5 level of the Standard mine, at Silverton, a body of  concentrating ore 130 feet in width j  has beon encountered.  On tho Hector group at Ains-  worth an ore body 1G feet wide  has been struck in an adit. The  ore is of concentrating grade.  J. H. Tnrnbnll of the Canadian  Consolidated Mining & Smelting  Co., is making a report on the  mineral resources of the Hazelton  district.  The Waterloo mine in Camp McKinney is being unwatered, and  will be examined by experts this  week. The water in the Sailor  will be pumped out.  A 15 foot ledge of galena was  recently struck on the Cascade  Ealls fclaim, on the Salmon river  near Stuart, This is one of the  best showings found in that district this year.  At the Portland-Bear River  mine, in the Portland Canal district, an excellent surface showing  of quartz carry free gold has been  found, and a tunnel run in 50 feet  on the ore body.  In the last two years ore worth  $2,000,000 has been developed  above the 450 foot level in the  Mother Lode mine, in the Sheep  Creek camp, and the property  equipped with an up-to-date plant.  The Kootenay Belle mine, Sheep  Creek camp, has produced over  8100,000 in gold during development work. Ore has now been  encountered at considerable depth,  and the property looks very encouraging.  A good grade of anthracite coal  has been discovered on the property of the B. C. Anthracite Syndicate, at Ground Hog mountain in  the Skeena district. Extensive  development work is' to be done  this year, $75,000 being on hand  for this purpose.  The West Kootenay Light &  Power Co. have announced their  intention of increasing the rate  now charged for electrical power  from 40 to 75 per cent., and have  served notice on the Granby company that power service will be cut  off on the date their present contract expires, July 18fch., unless a  new contract be previously made  at tho increased rate.    This places  the company in a critical position,  as it is doubtful if smelting can be  carried on at a profit with Pennsylvania coke and increased power  rates, and Manager Sylvester of the  Granby Consolidated has filed a  petition with the provincial secretary, imploring the intervention  of the provincial executive in the  matter. "Unless there is .prompt  action on the part of the Government, another shut down at Phoenix and Grand Forks appears in  sight.

THE BIG TUNNEL  Talking about Greenwood the  Vancouver Province has the following:���������  Mr. Alex Miller of this city has  returned from Greenwood bringing  good news of the progress made in  driving a.long   tunnel  from   the  valley of Boundary Creek to tap at  depth the big ore bodies of Phoenix camp.    Already two veins of  silver-lead  ore   running   high   in  gold and   silver, and   which out  crop on  the surface,   have- been  crosscut.    The second one was encountered a few days ago, the ore  averaging $150 per ton.    This result is taken as demonstrating that  values persist at. depth and that  other veins which outcrop farther  up the mountain will be encountered  long before the low grade ore  bodies of Phoenix shall have been  reached.  When the tunnel reaches a point  3,000 feet from the portal, the  management of the Greenwood  Tramway & Development Company, which. has been granted a  bonus by the city of Greenwood,  intends to make an upraise to the  surface to insure perfect ventillat-  ion before, stoping out ore and extending the tunnel farther into the  mountain in the direction of Phoe-  In an air line Greenwood and  Bridesville  The crops are all looking fine  around this city. ������������������-'--..  *  ...-Mr, Taylor, president'of the  Rock Creek Farmer's Institute,  was here last Thursday.
