While fishing up Boundary  Creek upon a good and recent  day, James McCreath Jr., saw a  bear. The bear became alarmed and ran away to the taller  timber, but Jim, after taking another shot of bait kept on fishing  with stoical indifference, unmindful of thc dangers that lurk in  thc wilderness.  Mayor MacLaine, having tho interests of tho citizens of Greenwood  and district at he.irt, wired the  following lettergram to Sir Richard  McBride on Monday last;���������  Greenwood, B. 0.  Si*r RicfiAiiD McBijTDE, Premier.  Hon. W. J. Bowser, Attorney-General,  Victoria, B.C.  I respectfully call your immediate attention to the fact that the  Canadian Pacific Bail way Company  is continuing the construction of a  tunnel for the Public Highway at  its bridge in tho north end of this  city, at an angle which prevents  drivers of automobiles and teams  from seeing  approaching vehicles  until both will be actually in the  tunnel.    The approach and tunnel  will be about  120 feet in length,  and low, and not of a width to permit a load of hay and team to pass  therein.    Seo plans made for Department by Surveyor Johnson. Its  construction   in its present form  and angle was protested against by  the Grand Jury at the Assize last  month, and I ask you to refer  to  such finding.    If permitted to be  completed the   tunnel   will   be a  death trap and a permanent menace  to life and property, since with the  advent of automobiles it is necessary to have a clear view of approaching vehicles; and being long  and low and dark it will be a resort  of holduppers and other criminals.  A  meeting of the electors has  been called to protest against  this  menace.     I   am fighting for the  safety of our citizens and the travelling public, and to protoct them  from robbery and  worse.    It will  be unsafe for women to enter such  a tunnel unprotected.  F. W. MacLaine,  Mayor.  There was a rose show in Kaslo  this week.  Another bakery has been opened  in New Michel.  The new Harrison river bridge  will cost 8350,000.

The Royal hotel in Rupe was  fined S25 for selling booz-i after  hours.  Dr. Ewert, formerly of Nanaimo  has opened an oflice in Fort  George.  A New York syndicate has  bought 200 lots in Revelstoke for  $100,000.  In golden, ' G. E. Parhani was  fined 85 for running his bicycle on  a sidewalk.

Up to date no union has declared  a strike agaiust drinking booze and  smoking cigarettes.  * The Zorra, a two dory vessel recently brought into Prince Rupert  a catch of 30,000 fish.  This year the B.C. govern ment  is spending ������5,000,000 upon 1,500  miles of roads and trails.  During June there were 31. cams  in the police court at Duncan, and  $291 was collected for fines.  Keep up your courage even if  you are broke. Many a, big fish  has started on a small scale.  At Merritt a man was fined 825  for not keeping his stables aud  yard in a sanitary condition.  N. C.

Tho section foremen along, the  G.T.P. railway, east of-Prince  Rupert have a variety of pet stock.  One has a bear and a bull pup, another a flock of tame wild geose,  and still another'a seal.'  Persons driving autos in B.C.  must not take intoxicating liquors.  Any driver is liable to lose his  licence if he does, in addition to a  line or imprisonment. Like other  laws it is broken every day.  In the Hazelton district the  wagon road between Barrett's  Cache and the Mclnnis Ranch is  one of the worst in the world.  Recently it took 12 horses a day-to  drag along it one ton of freight for  a distance of three miles.  Fifty years ago only 1,000  pounds of flour remained on Sovereign creek, B.C., whioh was selling for 81.25 per pound, butter S4 '  per pound, sugar $2 per pound,  tobacco $5 per pound, bacon $1.75  per pound, gum boots $30.  Tom Proctor was run over and  killed by an automobile one night  last week in Victoria. He was an  old-timer of Nelson and one of tho  best known men in B.C. Ho was  interested in many enterprises, and  was managing director of the  Lucky Jim mine.  Send for a catalogue of head-  Rtones and monuments, mado by  the Kootenay Monumental Works,  Nelson, B.

It is a true fac-smile  of an ideal home on tho Red River,  the setting having been constructed  aud painted    from   actual  photographs,   secured    by    Mr.   Leon  Washbourn.     Mr.   Wash bourn  is  most exacting,  even  in the most  minor    details   of   a  production.  Whore another manager would, be  contented    with    papier    mache  plants,   Manager Washburn must  havo tho real article.   He engaged  tho sorvides of a chemist who finally produced a shellac by the use  of which the cotton plant may be  preserved in its natural state indefinitely.    The several hundred  plants used   in tho Stetson production are exactly as thoy were  when  removed from a   Lonisana  plantation in the height of the cotton picking season.

The Priuce Rupert Empire says  that the salary of the poet laureate  of England is hardly enough to pay  his fines.  From 24 Brown Leghorn hens  Mr. Nowell of Fairfield Island has  gathered 222 dozen eggs since January 1st.  Colonel J. G. Egau died in Rossland last week. He was a veteran  editor and known in nearly every  western mining camp.  It is just nineteen years ago  since a bush fire destroyed Three  Forks, and Dutch Rose saved her  lifo by jumping into the creek.  Worthless bills of the Bank of  Prince Edward Island are being  circulated in B.C. This bank failed 26 years ago and the bills are  no good.  Every time a male child is born  in Whitehorse the editor of the  Star put the item in his paper over  the heading of "Another Ball  Player."  While playing baseball at a picnic, Louis McLinn slid into a pan  of boiling water and scalded his  legs. Accidents of this kind'are  very rare.  John Archer while on his way to  Victoria died in Revelstoke laut  week from heart disease. He was  one of the pioneer rauchors of  Mirror Lake, near Kaslo.  Owing to tho extrome prevalence  of mosquitos along the Duncan  rivor, work has beon suspended for  the summer on the trail between  Healy's Landing and Hall creek.

It believes that advertising is thc life of trade ; and that one of the noblest works of  creation is the man who always pays the printer.

Thousands now come to New  York, Boston or Chicago, work  twenty years, pay SI ,000 a  year rental, and at thu nnd of thafe  time, instead of having invested  $20,000 in the* city, they have  nothing. Hence the city dwellers  are a homeless, unrooted lot, restless strangers whom it is impossible  to interest in civic matters.  As they pay tho hotter part of  their earnings to landlords, so thoy  leave tho government of the city to  grafters.  Let the people own their city  and they will  take an  interest in  governing their  city. Dr.  Frank  Crane.  imsmmwmitMmwBsmmsmgm  I  Rhkoum, like charity should begin at home.

The death of Tom Proctor was a  severe shock to his many friends  in Nelson and all ovor the province,  and removes from this life ono of  tho most prominent .pioneers of  Kootenay. His gonial disposition  will never bo forgotten by thoso  who know him, and his departure  has left a blank space in the.merry  life of this province.

Ali\ gentlemen add exchange to  their cheques when paying bills  due in distant towns.  It is always better to approach a  missed hole and a strange bull-dog  with caution and respect.  It takes banks a long time to  change their ways. They are still  printing bearer on their cheques  instead of order.  "On! for the touch of a vanished  hand," is the favorite poetical expression of tho chap who cannot  open a big jackpot.  Tins is a poor summer for prospecting. Although we found some  float, wo have not located a hen's  nest in our backyard, for more  than a month.  From reading the war news from  thc Balkan States, wo are inclined  to believe that tho "Kilkenny  cats" will havo to go away back  and recline in the shade.  The long list of dead and  wounded published daily in the  papers proves that the automobile  is still on top. If something is.  not done to stop this terrible carnage the world will be short of  speed maniacs.  The other Sunday two little  birds flew into our office, and when  Ave came around tho next morning  they lay dead on our desk, probably killed by smelling the paste.  Ono was blue and the other gray,  so, thinking of Gettysburg, we  buried them in our flower garden.  Under the roses, thc blue, under  tho lilies, the gray.  At Rossland last week the death  of Colonel Egan removed from this  mortal sphere one of the noblest  editors    that the    west has ever  known.    He was almost too good  a man for this earth, and he certainly is entitled to a seat close in  to the great White Throne.    As  Billy Harkin saye in writing of the  Colonel's death,   "It was ar- inspiration   to    have   known  Col.  Egan.   A life devoted to the welfare of his fellowmen has not boon  lived in vain."  The most unsatisfactory expression of democracy is the American city.  Here individualism is at its fever  heat. Hither the money maddest  men swarm, as moths about the  candle. Here are enormous gains  to be made from juggling with the  aggregates of the people, which the  people so far do not dare to handle  for themselves. Here is the carcass of slain public rights; and  where the carrion is there the  eagles are gathered together."  Here democracy has been masked by the bugaboo fronts of socialism, paternalism, and other afrites  of fearsome name, and the people,  ignorant and afraid, let the shrewd  and privileged few glut themselves  uuwhipt.  One of the greatest menaces to  the city is landlordism.    No rise in  values is so  enormous as that in  land values.    It is  caused  solely  by tho presence of  the people; it  ought to go to the people; it goes  to tho landlord; he does not earn a  cent of it; his entire gain is unjust.  Little by little the land-holder is  extending his ownings.    The bulk  of the city dwellers are renters.  They have   no   reachable   opportunity to become land owners.  No democracy can thrive and be  healthy that is composed of tenants, pouring tho cream of their  labor's product into the paiis of a  few idle persons privileged by law  and custom.  Patriotism, civic conscience and  an interest in public affairs aro  plants that grow from property.  To cure an anarchist it is only nec-  cessary to give him a house and  lot. The roots of good citizenship  are in the soil.  The French peoplo are realizing  this. Their government has set  aside $20,000,000 as a fund to encourage working men to own their  homes.. The scheme, beset at first  with difficulties now works smoothly. Hundreds of workmen in tho  north of France, where the idea is I  farthest advanced, are proprietors,  The result is better citizens, more  self-respect, healthier children.  Why cannot the American city  follow the example of Limoges, for  instance? Or the plan of Mr.  Ribot in Paris, who is organizing a  company to put up co-operative  buildings containing fifty lodgings,  where each tenant by small payments may acquire ownership of  his dwelling?  But, better still the city should  undertake this. Why cannot the  people rise to see that the city  moans themselves?  The case of Cnlshaw vs.   Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Co., Ltd., arose out  of a Hnowslido  which   occurred  at  Coal Creek on the Mth of hist January, when J. Cnlshaw lost his life.  His widow through District IS, U.  M. W. of A. sought compensation  under    tho  W.  C.   Act;,   but  His  Honor   Judge   Thompson    found  against her on the ground that the  snowslide was occasioned by abnormal  conditions  of weather.    The  applicant appealed and the following is tbe decision of the Hon. Mr.  Justice Murphy;���������"If the arbitrator had made   a   straight  finding  that the deceased was not  specifically affected by reason of his employment by the abnormal weather  occasioning   the    suowsiido    that  would be, I think, a finding of fact  with which I could not   interfere.  He has found that the cause of the  accident was a snowslide, and that  had it been occasioned   by  normal  causes applicant should succeed, I  take it, because he would be specially affected by reason  of his employment���������that is, exposed to extra  hazard, because he   was at  work  where he was.    How that position  of affairs can be altered by a snow-  slide being   caused   by abnormal  conditions of weather I  fail to see,  since the governing factor is special  exposure, which would be as operative in the second  instance as in  tho first.    I remit the case   stated  to tho arbitrator with directions to  find for appellant.''  This case is of especial interest  to workmen who are employed  where snowslides are liable to happen, and further it is tho very first  decision over handed down on tho  liability of operators for injury to  workmen through snowslides.

The department figures estimated  51,5(10,000  cattle in  the  country  on January  1, 1907,  and only 30,030,000 at  the beginning of  the present year.  The advocate of tho   proposed  legislation  to protect calves estimate  that about 9,000,000 calves  are   slaughtered   iu    the   United  States each year, aud  that if these  calves  were allowed  to  reach an  age of three or  four years before  being slaughtered,   the  supply  of  beef would be increased 9,000,000,-  000 pounds and  leather supplies  augmented by 279,000,000 feet.  The Copper Market  United States Beef  It is reported  that   Argentina,  which as a cattle-raising country is  much   younger   than  the   United  States, has already been sufficiently  foresighted to protect'this industry,  and has had a law in eJfect- for several years prohibiting tho killing of  any  male  beef animal   until it is  three years old and a female until  it has reached six years.    Reports  diil'er   regarding    this   Argentina  statute as to whether it applies to  the entire country or only to certain  states;  but at any rate   its  effect it clearly shown  in the exports of slaughter hides from that  country,, which  fully run  ninety  per cent", steers and bulls anil only  ten per cent.    cows.    It is   also  noticeable that about all the calf-  Until there is a decided relaxation in "tho money market the  world over and a resumption of  buying by those who invest in  securities there will be no further  important increase in copper consumption. Industry everywhere  is in thn grasp of tight money.  Going enterprises are using all the  available funds and there seems to  be no 'surplus for tlio entablish-  of new ones.  Tn this country whore wo have  07 per cent, of all tho worlds telephones and only 0 per cent, of the  world's population tho immense  business value and utility of this  means of quick and cheap communication has been so fully  demonstrated that wo know it  must eventually become a worldwide institution. Telephone construction is one of the largest consumers of copper, and if tho business houses and homes of tho people in Europe, Asia, South America, Australia and a portion of  Africa are to be connected with  telephone wires as ours are, and  also lighted with electricity, tho  future of the copper market is certainly assured.  Tho use of copper as a alloy for  steel is making splendid progress.  Last year the Chicago, Milwaukee  & St. Paul railroad purchased  5,000 tons of rails containing half  a per cent, of copper, and recently  it has ordered 8,395 tons more.  Tho importance in using copper in  the structural steel for skyscraper  building construction must soon be  recognized, as the lasting qualities  tho world's total output. Only  two or three more promising properties of this class are now under  development. The world's markets have absorbed all of this new  copper at fairly good prices, thus  serving notice that there will be a  continuing rapid growth of demand  in the future.  Financial conditions aro such  that very little work is being done  to iind and open up new copper  deposits--much less proportionately than has beeu the rule during tho past 30 or 40 years. Every  copper mining failure makes it just  so much more difficult to raise the  money for another ventuie. It  will require a very high- ruling  prico for copper and enormous profits for producers to create the public interest essential to tho financing of a new campaign of exploration and development, and in the  meantime existing mines will reap  the benefit, for consumers must pay  much more higher prices eventually  for their copper.  Tho reaction now under way in  the metal market will probably  prove to bo of only temporary duration. Thero is little prospect that  copper prices will havo any furthor  decline. Before man}** months the  whole business, financial and political situations should clear, making possible a general resumption  of industrial expansion. The  statistical position of tho metal is  so strong that it should be oue of  tbe first commodities to refiect improving business conditions.--Boston Commercial.  ARLINGTON HOTEL  Trail, Ii.

I have never seen institutions for human beings, better planned in the way of nurseries and attendants, hygienic laws and systems of  Oocllng.

Let us listen a moment tc  Nortlicote relating Sir Joshua Reynolds'  experiences:  "When the artist had worked pu tho  face till he had drawn it very correct*,  ly. a.s he saw it at the time, Gnrrlek.  caught an opportunity, while tin?  painter was not looking at him, totally  to chauge his countenance and expression, when the poor painter patiently  worked on to alter the picture and  make it like what he then saw, and  when Garrick perceived that it was  thus altered he seized another opportunity and changed his countenance to  a third character, which, when the poor  tantalized artist perceived, he, in a  great rage, threw down his palette and  pencils on the floor, saying lie believed  he was painliug from the devil and  would do no more to the picture."

McDONELL, Proprietor  U****i���������**������*���������^   8arcastio Writer Frees His  About Their Methods,  The postofflces in Germany are peculiar institutions, says F. Harris Deana  In the Wide World Magazine. They  are a farslghted people, the Germans,  and they allow for expansion. If  there are any postofflces In the country of less than three stories, I must  have overlooked them. Every floor ia  divided into about four departments,  and every department has about a dozen offices.  In some of the smaller towns -where  business is not very brisk the staff  consist! of one official. You have to  make an appointment with him if you  want to be served. Entering on the  ground floor you run round and tap  with your money at "every pigeonhole  until he answers. You then ask him  for a stamp, whereupon he orders you  to go to No. 1 pigeonhole and wait;  there till he comes. You wait patiently for about Ave minutes and then he  pops his head out of No. 3 and wants  to know if you've gone to sleep. When  you ask for a five cent stamp he says,  "Oh, I thought it was a penny one you  wanted," and instructs you to try at  No. 7. At No. 7 he probably discovers  he has run out of Ave cent stamps and  you have to go to windows No. 8 and  No. 11 and get two two cent ones and  a one cent  By this time you are getting quite  friendly, and when you ask him where  the telegraph office is he will probably  get out his guidebook and hunt the  place out for you. He may even offer  to take you there himself, as he's the  telegraph clerk as well and has got to  get there anyhow In order to attend to  you.  The Germans themselves when they  go to buy a stamp make a day of it  and take their lunch with them. It is  quite a pretty sight to see the mother  and a group of children sitting on the  stairs, eating their bread and sausage  and wondering whether father will remember them when he comes back  with the stamp.

Curiously enough, although that fury  of the chemical world, fluorln, raises  the deuce, generally speaking, It exists  peacefully in company with calcium In  fluospar and also in a few other compounds.  Although fluorln was known a good  many years ago, it long resisted the  efforts of chemists to isolate it���������that is,  to prepare it in a p������ire state unmixed  chemically with other substances���������for  the instant the compound containing  it was torn apart the free fluorln attacked and combined with whatever  substance composed the vessel containing it.

MINING NEWS   f  O O 00-00-0000000000000-0000000  Charlie Brown  an   old Lillooet  prospector, and  now a  resident of  Pomberton, arrived in  town Monday and reports having made a discovery of a largo body of ore containing gold, fcilver and  copper in  thn   vicinity   of   the   Birkenhead  hatchery, on  a creek  called  Owl  creek.    The property is in  close  proximity to the P.G.E., and work  will be advanced at once to develop  the property.    TJu'b  is  one  of the  many new strikes made this summer, and  everything looks  favorable for the mining future of this  district;.���������Lillooet Prospector.  wright, M. E;, who is one of a Vancouver syndicate which has a bond  on the property, was in the city on  Tuesday last on   his  way  to the  Terminal.city.    Ho said that a trial  shipment to  the Taeoma smelter  had shown tho average ore   to   be  worth ������29.09 per ton in  gold, copper and silver.    At this rate there  was more than   enough  profit to  warrant the operators in arranging  for increased  output.    There are  now 100 tons of ore on  the dump  and it Is expected that about three  hundred tons more-will be  taken  out during this month.    There are  twelve men at work and  this stall  will shortly be increased.  The Kallapa was located by John  Chesterman, of To lino, who bonded  it to the Vancouver syndicate  about a year ago since when operations have been carried on steadily.  Port Alberni News.

New Gold Strike  Not yet has the stamp mill and  the. operation--* of  the quartz miner  driven  out the placer man from  Lillooet district, aR is shown by tho  snecesfi    which   is   attending   tho  operations  of  Carl   Wihskne and  ��������� John  G.   Boivot on   Cadwallader  creek.  The two ItussiitnR  have a group  of four claims on tlie creek,  situated immediately below the Lome  mine.    Tho. group is known as tho  Silver Basin.    On  them they hold  placer rights.   They have this season brought water a distance of  two miles.    Working on the claims  in quite, a small way the men have  already taken  ont 14-V ounces of  gold from a piece of ground 25x25  worked to an average depth of five  feet.  The gold is all coarse, ranging  from five cents to ������9, and is found  from the grass roots down. There  is no line gold. With additional  appliances and more extended  operations "Messrs. Wihskne &  Boivot should have a very profitable property.���������Lillooet Prospector.  The Omineca Gold Mines,   Ltd.,  of Vancouver,  who have sixteen  leases on Quartz and Vital creeks  in the Omineca district,  and  ten  miles of dredging ground on Fall  river havo   decided   to  undertake  development on a large scale.    R,  D. Fetherstonhaugh, M. E., Vancouver, was in town this week outfitting for a trip to  the property.  He is taking six men in with  him  this season to continue the prospecting which was started last year.  Mr. Fether8tonhaugh secured  the  ground for the company and  he  look out some vevy good samples  last fall.    Ho stated to the Herald  that the Omineca Gold Mines, Ltd.  was preparing to put in a large  j (land next season   and   that this  year lie would complete the preliminary plans and  have everything  Cordova. ���������Nows of a placer  strike on tho Sushanna river, a  tributary of the White river, where  two men recently took out ������900 in  dust iu ono day, has caused a  stampede to that section from  Blackburn and Kennecott,  So far no definite -news has been  received  of the strike, yot scores j  are now outfitting to go there, aiid  a number of  people have already  left.  For several reasons old-timers  are ready to believe in the strike.  It has been long predicted that  sometime there would bo a stampede on the upper reaches of the  Tanana river. Every year a few  prospectors have been taken out  grubstakes by sniping along the  rim rock.  The great expense of getting outfits into the country made extensive prospecting or the sinking of  holes to bedrock any distanco prohibitive.  It is always easy to stampede in  the spring time down tho river,  current will propel boats, but to  pole up such a swift river as the  Tanana from Fairbanks has been  a trick too difficult and expensive  to attract many prospectors.  Years ago, before Fairbanks was  thought of,   so the report goes, a  man died in  Chicago  who drew a  map of the place where he and a  partner had taken out a large sum  of placer gold.    The partner had  been killed by the Indians.   The  map  located the stream on what  was afterwards  thought to  beon  good    pasture,  a    branch   of the  upper    Tanana,    but   subsequent  gold seekers failed to reach their  expectations.  The new strike is fifty miles  from the Copper River railway at  Blackburn or McCarthy.  and prospecting the surface of some  of the claims she is interested in.  No place is too steep for her to  climb and no risk too hnzardous to  i'un when mineral is in question.  A dovont believer in the mining  possibilities of the Lardeau district,  she has lived continuously at  IVout Lake City since the camp  was first opened up. Money that  she has made in the,hotel business  has gone into the ground for assessments on claims she holds and if  thero is any claim owner in West  Kootenay that is deserving of a  gold or galena liar vest, it, i.s Mrs.  Jowett. Probably hor most prom- j  ising interests lie in the "Copper  Cliff" and the "Skyline" claims,  in the Lardeau. .These she owns  jointly with her son-in-law, S. A.  Daney, of Ferguson. Tim surface  showings are promising and what  development has been done on  these properties has made them  look more promising still. They  are in a good locality; with other  fine showings around them. It  takes money to make a mine, out  of a prospect but if faith and perseverance and pluck were money,  the subject of this little shctch  would be worth millions today  Kaslo Kooton.-iian  vovy much faster.  Thc machines are so perfect that  they cut the wiro of which the  pins are mado into pieces of the  fight length, head, point polish  and sort them. They are then put  into another machine which affixes  them bo paper, at the rate of SO.OOO  to 1.00,000 per hour.  In.the fourteenth   century  pins  wero pins!   They were not carelessly lost as nowadays or given as  a substitute for a  farthing change.  The law permitted that they should  only be sold on  the first two days  of January  each  year,   in   order  that  they  might not  become  too  common.    It therefore became the  custom  for ladies of all classes.to  buy their year's  stock  of pins on  these days, and the  money  givon  them   for   this  purpose   by   their  husbands or fathers wero known as  pin money���������a phrase that has survived (o the present day.  ^^"^--���������^������������������-CKJ-OO*^^  C.

I" England every day says Til,  Bits there is an output of over  0*1,000,000 pins. i:irmii,-;h;mi, the  greatest centre of the industry in  this country, alone produces .'J7,-  000,000 pins per day. The output  of other pin manufacturers in this  country is only about half that  of Birmingham. In Fiance I In-  daily production is L'0,000,000,  while Germany nnd Holland produce .10,000,000 per day. Tlio  total output for Europe each day  is therefore S-l,000,000.  It is seldom that a pin gets  broken or worn, and the question  is therefore, "Where do all the  pins go to?" The greater number  of them get lost and there is no  other domestic article where then-  is so much waste by loss. If every  person in Europe lost a pin on  every third day the daily loss  would represent over .-������1000.  In former days the'number of  men it required to make a pin was  one of the marvels of the. maufact-  uring \vorld, but as with most  other manufacturing products,  machinery has taken the place of  men, and  pins are  now produced  A railroad is projected to open a  rich mineral and agricultural country between Jlcrilia on the Bay  of  iMozuiiliiqiie and Lake Chirua, on  the frontier of Nyasaland, connecting with the English railway  from  the Cape to Cairo and also with the  lino from Lohito to Karounga. The  length of the road will be  between  000 and J,000 kilometers, construction to be completed, according  to  plans of   the government,   within  three years.    A special mission   of  thc   Portuguese  Government   has  already left Lisbon for Mozambique  to survey the route.
