Bandages had been placed  around the wound. That was all.  He, too, had received no medical  attention since the Casus Grandes  fight and gangrene had set in.  A number of other wounded were  in such shape that the surgeonh and  nurses did not dure touch them  until thoy had received their rubber gloves from the supply depot at  El Paso.  Stretched on the floor in one  room were live wounded men. One  was dying from a shot tnrough the  lungs. But he had received the  attention of a woman who crouched at the side of the unconscious  man fanning the flies from his face  and weeping silently.

The newspaper  at Coleman has inverted its column  rules and hung the oflice towel on  the outer door.  That grand old C. P. R. man,  Bill Whyte, says that the Northwest will produce this year 200,-  000,000 bushels of wheat. Having  looked out of a great many car  windows in his day Bill ought to  ho good guesser, if the frost does  not butt in and dispel his dream.  Diaz has gone to end his days  in Spain and thinks that Mexico  will still have to be rnled with  sword and shotgun. "We believe  him, for nothing else is of much  use in a country where the people  go to church in the morning and a  bullfight in the afternoon. Moral  suasion or Sunday school tracts do  not fizz on barbarians of the Mexican brand.  The   promulgation   of   the   Ne  Tom ere decree in  Canada proves  that Rome largely rules Canada in  the matter of marriage ceremonies.  In Canada we seem to tolerate the  orders of the church  moro  than  they  do in Europe.    The  Canadians are easy, and   in ' a  religious  sense  not strong enough to walk  by   themselves.     They   are   still  children and have to pay learned  priests and parsons to shoo away  the bad man and keep them out of  hell.    You pays your money and  you takes your choice. The majority of  people go to church  from  force of habit, or because it gives  them a standing in the community.  The church has been long enough  in existence to have made nearly  all men good,  but it has been a  failure.   The professors of theology  should discard the old methods and  prospect for a religion  that will  make all happy.    It will have to  be coupled  with  science and the  people taught how to live mentally  and physically right.   No man can  get to heaven if he lives wrong, no  matter how much he prays.

'k.A /*.%';  The Pilgrim Fathers  The people of Southampton are  bent on   raising a  monument  to  the  memory  of those very  much  over-lauded Pilgrim Fathers, who  have  been   represented   by   their  Puritan  successors   as   men   who  were passionately fond of religious  liberty and were so persecuted  by  their   oppressors   that   they    left  England   in   disgust  and   despair,  and founded a colony  where  they  raised the flag of religious liberty.  As a matter of fact, they were not  in-favor of religious liberty at all,  and left England only because they  had no chance of persecuting their  opponents.      When   thoy   got   to  America they set up a system of  persecution   of   all   who   differed  from them, which  was far worse  than   any   they   had   suffered   in  England.    The crime of witchcraft  was    punished    with    a   severity  which would have made a member  of the Spanish  Inquisition  green  with envy.    Every   joy   was   accounted a sin, every  pleasure an  invention of the devil,   and   not  content with robbing life of all its  sunshine, they gloried in depicting  the life to come as one in which  the vast majority of human beings  would be for ever roasting  in  the  torments of hell.    Nathaniel Hawthorne's   "Scarlet Letter" gives a  vivid picture of the joyless gloom  of  this  puritanical  regime.    Certainly the cause of religious freedom   has   nothing   to  thank   the  Pilgrim Fathers for.  y measures. 'j9oy,iLabh  music, too much pfavp.-\-i'"or too  much of anything \whl make yon  degenerate, -aiuY that is the main  reason why the professors of prayers  so often inflict upon the people  severe and arbitrary measures of  creed and ceremony.  The Toll of War  It would appear that itJu ounifl.  being a soldier in Gibrafter. In  that niche r^Jiie"world a Tommy  Atkins is punished if ho goes on  church parade with a piece of fluff  sticking to his pants. Then why  have soldiers attend church anyway? Their legitimate business is  creating hell for themselves and  others, and the bluff of being religious does not tally with their  bloody vocation.

He  does not use much sugar in his  shots at the evil things that men  do, but peppers away with words  that havo made many a human  false alarm corrode the ozone with  sulphuretted profanity.

Here is a pen  picture from Jaurez, Mexico, that  will give you a glimpse of the real  thing:  "Three or four federals were  ioiiD/Jfm an hotel that had been  used by the federals as their hospital, suffering from wounds that  had been received in the fighting  around Casas Grandes nearly two  months ago and who had received  no care since that time. Hollowed  skeletons with gangrenous wounds  gazed silently at tho Red Cros.s  workers as they set to work, not at  first with the wounded but with  disinfectants and water to remove  the carrion stench that prevaded  everything. In ono room, practically stripped aud thrown in a  heap, wore found four dead bodies,  bloated and disfigured.  In another room, totally shut  out from sunlight or fresh air, were  half a dozen others who had almost lost the semblance of human  beings from erysipelas or the wasting typhoid fever. Another, typhoid-stricken and all but naked,  lay on the ground outside the door  of one of the illy-ventilated rooms.  Over the mouth and eyes of the  dying wretcli hovered a swarm of  flies.  Another skelton mutely pointed  to his leg. It had been broken by  a bullet at CaHas Grandes. A  rough board, stretched from the  poor fellow's hip to his ankle, had  been bound to tho fractured limb.  The bandages had not boon touched  since that time.

The civilized world has long deprecated appeal to arms as a mode  for settling disputes, yetevidence of  England's military strength will be  the predominant feature of the  coronation tho same as it was in  semi-barbaric days when every  mans hand was against his neighbor and when the principle "Alight  makes right" was accepted by all  principalities and powoiy and when  men lived and died by the .sword.  In fact it does not auger well for  modern civilation that military  pomp and display should overshadow all else in tho crowning of  a king of a Christian people.  In connection with the above  observation it is not out of place to  suggest that the "Boy Scout"  craze now prevalent throughout  the domain, aside from the purpose  for furnishing exercise and cultivating manly bearing, should be discouraged. Tho youthful mind is  susceptible, "just as tho twig is  bent tho tree inclines," and we do  not believe it is in the interests of  good government to rear a generation in the present day which will  have no ideas of arbitration .aside  from the sword and the carbine.  If this be treason, we believe it  is of the kind with which four-  fifths of the lawabiding, peace- loving, most patriotic citizens of Canada will concur.���������White Horse  Star.

Mr. F. AV. Graham, . Western
Industrial and Immigration Agent
of the Great Northern, with headquarters at Seattle, was in the city
this week in connection with the
matter, and completed preliminary
arrangements. Mr. Graham said
that the company has met with
such success with its land policy
that it will institute a similar campaign iu regard to the mines. It
has been the policy of the company
to display at many points in the
East products from tho West, so
that intending settlers may see
what can be grown on the land
that is inviting population. Now
it willshow ore samples to interest
men who have money to invest.
Invitation has been extended to
all the mine owners along the line
of the Great Northern to send ore
exhibits. These will be catalogued
aud put on display at the company's agencies. Any one inspecting the ore may look up the catalogue and learn where it came
from and with this information
may communicate direct with the
owners.
Samples are expected from the
mines of the interior of British
Columbia, and Boards of Trade
are now engaged in interesting
owners of mines. The ore will be
first displayed at the exhibition in
Vancouver this year, and will be
packed here for shipment to the
various points where it will be
placed on display.
Mr, H. B. Brown, late of Hedley, is assisting in securing samples, and after the close of the exhibition will look after the cataloguing and installation of the
exhibits in the Great Northern
offices.���News-Advertiser.

been trying for years to figure out

other   countries   have   established
pension schemes,   which are   but
extensions of Poor Law Relief, the
result of which is to pauperize, and
not to stimulate thrift,, the Canadian Government has, by its Annuities Act,   inaugurated   a   scheme
whereby   thrift is promoted,   and
the people are provided with facilities which will enable them to
help themselves, and at' the same
time preserve their self-respect and

JOHN  COLIN  FORBES  R.  G,
.Canada's Great Portrait Painter
Tho artist who was commissioned by the Cuuadiun Government to paint
the portraits of King Edward und Queen Alexandra for tho Dominion Houso ol
Parliament, and who was honored with sittings by their Majesties in-the early
part of this year, is John Colin Forbes who_ has a long .trail of successes in his
sixty years.
Born in Toronto of Scotch-English parents, ho was educated at Upper Canada
, College in his native city, and nt an early ago showed tho first faint dawnings
of his artistic genius. He was entirely self-taught, following with tho sure instirfct
of true power along the lines of natural development, and silently working out
his own destiny until ho produced his first real work, a portrait of his father.
This revealed so commanding an exhibit of his ability that ho was sent to study
at tho South Kensington Museum and later at tho Royal Academy in London.
One of his lirst pairitingn, a marine view called " Toronto Bay," took a first prize
at the Provincial Exhibition in 1806 and ho later painted a number of portraits
that added greatly to his fame, notably those of Lord Duffcrin, Sir John Macdonald, Alexander MaoKenzio, Edward Blako, Sir Charles Tuppcr and Lady
Helen Blackwood.
In 18S1 he was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts and fivo years
later painted for the Canadian Pacific II.R. a series of pictures which reproduced
some of tho masterpieces of Nature's painting and sculpture in tho wild, romantic
Canatlian Rockies, whero Titanic mountains, deep gorges, great expanses of
scenory aro shown in a color scheme of Naturo at her best. These gavo him
themes that filled his artistic soul with joy. Those who aro familiar with his
paintings "The Canon in tlio Royal Gorge/' "Tho Mount of tho Holy Cross,"
11 Mount Stephen," and tho " Glacier of the Sclkirks," must ever carry with them
tho memory of their majestic beauty and power. In 1891 members of tho Canadian Liberal party sent him to England to paint a full-length portrait of Gladstone for the National Liberal Club of London. For tho post few yoars much of
his work 1ms been done in tlio United States where ho has made portraits of many
of tlio leading men of tlio country. ������
Fire and water have been,merciless in their pursuit of Mr. Forbes. When
tho steamer " Hibernia" went down in niiil-oecan 111 1SH8 it carried with itsomo
of his best paintings and lie barely escaped with his life, and his famous painting
of tho wreck was destroy er I by fire in IS79. In three later fires tho work of years
fed tho flames, and yet this I'lircnix painter of Carutda, undismayed and undaunted, has over risen with new lilts from the ashes.

The earnest tribute paid to the
Canadian   Government  Annuities
A "Washington man relates how,
on one occasion in the West, when
he was on his way back to camp
after a clay's shooting, he suddenly
came in sight of a big she-bear
with two cubs following her iu
single file. They were proceeding
along a ridge, the forms of all of
them sharply defined against the
evening sky.
It was a long range for a shot,
but the sportsman drew a bead on
the. old she-bear and fired. The
result was amusing. The procession stopped; the she-bear scratched
herself hastily, then turned round,
and, regarding the cub immediately
behind with severe disapproval,
boxed its ears soundly.
Mother Bear then went ou her
way, ber back uncommonly rigid
a lid unrelenting, and it was clearly
apparent to the sportsman that she
was under the impression that her
frolicsome offspring had been up to
to some mischief that must not be
repeated.

This lead carries  galena, is four feet wide, and  only a short distance from Greenwood city hall.  The annual mcetiug of the  Argo Tunnel & Mining Co. will  take place on June 24.  For thc past lf> years George  Jlcathcrton has owned a group  of six claims, lying between the  Mother Lode aud Big Copper  mines, He will spend the summer  doing work on them.  Professor Thompson and six  students from the state college al  Pullman, Wash., took some lessons in the Boundary last week.  Thc Granby mines will resume  operations with a full force next  Monday, aud the smeller at  Graud Forks will blow in iu a  day or two later, Thc first coke  from the east will arrive iu  Grand Forks ou Saturday. Six  furnaces will be blown in at thc  first, aud 'if the company find  that thc. coke question is not too  serious the other two furnaces  will be put iu action.  A special meeting ot the Granby shareholders will be held in  New York, next Tuesday, to consider the advisability of taking  up thc bond on the Hidden Creek  properties.    The bond expires on  the 15th, and the directors will  advise tlie shareholders to take it  up,  ihave also been found in the adjoining Idaho mine.  The Blue Bird, in the South  Belt of Rossland camp, is being  developed with promising results.  A cross-cut tunnel has been driven  to cut the vein below the 90-ft.  shaft and drifting on the vein is  uow in progress; It is expected  the mine will hereafter become a  regular shipper of ore containing  gold, silver, and lead, and returning. $S,0 to $90 per ton after 'deducting of freight and smelter  charges.  Norman Fraser has resigned  as-superintendent of the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Co.'s Michel colliery, to take the management of  the German Development Co.'s  new coal mines in the eastern  Rocky montain section of Alberta.  The latter company has coal properties iu Kanauaskis, Big Horn,  Braueau sections of the eastern  slope of the Rockies.  An underground fire is burning  in one of the Crow's Nest Pass  Co.'s coal mines at Michel. There  has not been any loss of life, but  it has been found necessary to  seal up the mine so as to try to  smother the fire, aud it is likely  this mine will have to be kepi  closed for several mouths.   ,  the return shipment of furs in ihe  fall from the northern posts.  These .are hauled buck up the  rapids by gaugs of Indians.  During the, summer it is the  intention to bring about three  tons of the famous tar sands from  McMurray to Edmonton. These  will be extensively tested and a  strip of experimental pavement  will be laid to lest its qualities  in actual operation.. A number  of paving aud oil compauics in  the United Stales have scut requests for samples of the ash-  phalt matrix and crude oil found  in the north, and the whole field  is creating a great deal of interest.  i'.i  b. c. MING sews  The Knob Hill has become the  fiflh dividend payer iu the Republic camp.  British Columbia miued over  two million tons of coal last  year.  The Staudard mine al Silver-  toti will begin shipping ore next  August.  Robert R. Hedley, for years  manager of the Nelson smelter,  has succeeded Wm. Fleet Robertson, provincial mineralogist, as  chairman of the western branch  of thc Canadian Mining Institute.  Alexander Sharp has prepared  a paper on the Bums Anthracite  Coal property in Alberta. He  states there is much coal ol high  grade and it can be mined at low  cost.  The Dwight & Lloyd sintering  process machines have been put  in at the Consolidated Co.'s  smelter at Trail, and are now  being given their first month's  trial run at those works. If as  successful as elsewhere, they will  supersede the Huntington-Heber-  lein roasters and converting pots  at Trail, and burn out most of  the sulphur in the ores at a much  lower cost than iu the past.  The Silverton Mines, Limited,  will start the Wakefield mill, on  Four-mile creek, on ore from the  Hewitt mine about July 15.  .Beside producing silver-lead concentrate by ordinary water concentration, a silver-zinc<i.3,v^-..'-t-  will be made, one unit of the Elmore Vnc^vJ r-'rocess plant having been put in to treat the zinc  middlings.  Much ore averaging higher  than an ouuee in gold to the  ton has been developed below the  1,200 level of thc Consolidated  Co.'s War Eagle mine, Rossland.  Sonic shoots of ore of good grade  The Greasy Stuff  Nothing  makes a greater  excitement   than   the   striking   of  rich oil wells.    Alberta expects a  boom  from  that  reason  in   the  near future.    The correspondent  of the Winnipeg Free Press writing from Edmonton says that at  the present time there  are  three  oil rigs on the way to Fort Murray,   which  during  the" present  summer will operate in that district and to the west of Pelican  Rapids.    The rigs aud the necessary piping have been  delivered  at Athabasca Landing   and  will  be sent down the Athabasca river  as fast as the barges can be built.  With the rigs there is over a mile  of steel piping, some of it up  to  14 inches in diameter for the deep  holes.  Up to a few weeks ago charlers  had been granted to over  50 oil  companies by the Alberta government, and it is thought by many  that the province is on thc eve of  an   oil   boom.    Geologists   have  stated  that  to  the north of ihe  Athabasca    the   stone    capping  which  overlies  the oil   fields  is  thinner than at any other  place  in  the  province.    The  field  extends under practically the whole  of thc province,  as indicated  by  the finding of gas wells  and  oil  springs.      In   the   Peace   River  country  there  are  a  number of  the latter mapped, and along the  Athabasca near McMurray  they  have been famous for years.  At least one of the rigs will  start operations some distance  back from McMurray in the hope  ot striking oil ot a lighter grade  than that which finds its way to  the surface at the various oil  springs A 14-inch hole will be  driven as deep as possible, and if  the formation blocks progress a  smaller drill will be sent down  inside and so pass the gas belt  iuto the oil which is thought to  lie below.  Transportation is one of the  main difficulties to be overcome  at present. All material has to  be hauled to Athabasca Lauding-  by teams. From there it is sent  down the Athabasca in barges,  through the 90 miles of rapids.  These barges are usually roughly  builtand at thc end of their journey are broken up, the lumber  being used for building purposes.  A few of the barges are used for  THE ASSIZES  The June .'assizes began sitting  yesterday with Mr. Justice Gregory on tho bench.

Great complaint was made by the people working at the mines and  smelter and particularly the farmers who came in to make purchases.  The city needs all the business it can get, and I will not be an instrument to prevent the farmer and laboring man from getting the accomodation they need whenever they wish.

There  are eight coal claims, some three  miles west of Midway, and development work is going on. It is intended to ship coal as soon as they  get a spur in from the C.P.R.���������  Rossland Miner.

The Crowell and Midway hotels  have had an introduction to the  painter this spring, and look the  better for it.  Harry Maas drifted into here  about two months ago and registered at the Midway hotel. He stated  that he had sold his newspaper at  Kelowna, and was looking for a  new location in which to insert the  lever that moves the world.. After  lingering around this beautiful  town for a week he donned his top  coat and sauntered over to Rock  Creek. Since then he has never  returned. He is evidently absent-  minded as his hotel bill is still unpaid. He left in his room some  epitaph poetry, and the cartoon of  a grave, filled with dollars, under  which was written, "What's The  Use." Smooth, but his touch was  light.    Just a week's board.
