When it was discovered that the  Premier was iu trouble in England  owing to the fact that he did not  understand the reciprocity agreement, and could not explain its  terms, and when it was learned  that he had cabled for Mr. Fielding to come over and help him,  thero was tho usual chorus of  official denial of denial and expostulation. It was given out that  Mr. Fielding had gone to Europe  for a rest.  It was a mighty rush for a man  going to a irest. Most folk rest in  some other fashion. And it is  possible to rest in Canada.  That the Government has prepared its plans for a sudden appeal  to the people shows anything may  be expected at any moment.

It is considered infra dig by  them   to   advertise in  the   press.  While steel has become the indispensable metal of the civilized nations, gold-is now, and always has  been, the one most precious thing  that men crave or covet. It is  more than a mrital. It is a fetish  ���������a mystic spell��������� a deity, almost.  No reasoning can explain its amazing iniluencu upon the. actions of  men. In fact the love of gold���������  that glittering yellow stull that  nature Hung away so carelessly  under rocks and mud, is the most  powerful passion of tho human  heart.  The call of gold!    It lias swayed  more men, for better or for worse,  than  an3'  other   motive.    Jt   has  built up empires and thrown them  down.    It has opened the way to  prosperity . and  to  decay.    It has  led   men to new   continents,  nnd  lured thorn into innumerable dangers.    It  has   brought carnivals of  pleasure, and the  most intolerable,  hardships.-. It  has hurled nations  at one another's throats, and held  them back when they wero clamoring for war.

Jn the search for  gold, great cities have been wiped  out. Jn fact, if the story of the  gold wero written in full, it would  como close to being a history of  mankind.

The other nations of Europe took  little interest in America until they  discovered the golden secret of the  Spanish galleons.    Then came the  battle of the seas.    The Dutch ami  English, who had always clung to  the land like trees, suddenly built  ships and became sea-rovers.   How  Montezuma    gave    Cortez    more  treasure than his men could carry  ���������how the Inca filled a room roof-  high with gold and silver to satiate  Pizarro���������such   stories passed from  man to man until all western Europe awoke from its sleep, and began  the search for wealth that has created the financial civilation of today.    It was the call of gold that  did it.  More than ever, .since the voyage  of Columbus, gold arid silver have  been  the sun and moon   of mankind.    It was the shipment of the  precious   metals from  America to  Europe that destroyed   feudalism,  liberated   the serfs,  weakened the  power of the nobility, and laid the  foundation of democracy.    Wo can  follow  the chain of oause and effect from the gold-mines of Mexico  and Peru to the block whero King  Charles of England lost his head.  Had it not been for the inrush of  gold    into    his    kingdom,   prices  would   not   havo   risen,   and   ho  would   not have   been   driven to  quarrel with his Parliament.  For the last four centuries there  has never been any wilderness so  remote or so full of perils that  the  gold   cry   could   not colonize  Indians  loafed through the easy seasons.  There was no city in 1SI.S, no railway, no commerce, except a little  fur-trailing and swapping of cattle  and sheep.  Then, one morning, Jim Marshall picked up a lklle piece of  yellowish rock, and brought it :ih a.  sort of curiosity to Mrs. Jennie  Weimer, with wkoin he was boarding.  "ft might be gold, Jim," said  Mrs. Weimer, and threw it into a  boiling kettle of soap.  That  night when   the soap   was  poured   of,   there lay  the shining  pebble, as yellow as the sun.  "It IS gold!" cried Mrs Weimer.  "Gold!" repeated Jim Marshall.  "Gold!" said California.  "Gold!"     .shouted    the   United  States and the whole round world.  Thero was practically no path to  California  at that time,   but four  hundred thousand men t-prang up  and rushed blindly and desperately  in its direction.  The line of wreckage, around the capo marked how  they went by sea and the abandoned knap-sacks and whitened bones  marked their trail by land.  And they got there���������throe-  fourths of them, at least. They  ripped up the hillsides and pushed  aside the rivers, and built towns as  Greenwood Office  HOTEL  *, NORDEN  JtJtJijXjtjtJtJtjt.tjtjtJtStJtJtJt  in those crags, and myriads of red  shifted argonauts climbed up and  took possession of the buried treasure.

In Australia and Colorado  Three years after Jim Marshall  had found his nugget, the gold cry  came   from   Australia.    The very  name of Australia was a strange,  new  word.

Ono of tho leading comediennes of tho American stage to-day, i3 May Irwin,  a daughter of Canada. In theso days of Ibsen plays with their dull dreary pessimism; of problem plays portraying tho morbid pathology of the emotions; of  society plays with their whipped creiun of forced epigram on the pulpy base of  a thin plot; and of melodrama, that puts a'dime novel into tho dress-suit of respectability, it is a relief to turn to something that gives us a hearty wholesomo  faugh and leaves no bad flavor in tho mouth, no later regret. Laughter is ono  of tlio safety valves of civilization, it is a needed vent in au ago of strenuous living; and a genuine apostlo of laughter is Alay Irwin.  Her power is her personality, her naturalness, her spontaneity; her bubbling  contagious good spirits establishing .a telepathic sympathy with her audience  which creates a continuous ripplo oi fun and laughter that defies analysis.  Tho daughter of Robert E. Campbell, Miss Irwin acknowledges that sho was  born in 18G2���������"tho' she doesn't look it" of course���������in Whitby, Ont., where sho  spent her early girlhood. At thc ugo of eight sho was a soprano in tho church choir  of her nativo village unci sang at every opportunity nnd with the slightest provocation, ns naturally as a bird sings,���������without a Marchesi training. At thirteen  the death of her father threw upon her and her sister I-'lora tho duly of money-  rnaking, and they made- their debut as singers in JmlTalo, N.Y. They were billed  as tho "Irwin Sisters," unknown to them, and accented tho name. They eang  "Sweet Genevieve" for their first song; Flora fainted after ifc was over but May  valieutly faced the audience for an encore with tho coolness of a veteran.  Engagements in other cities followed quickly on tlio western circuit, and  their third season found thorn at Tonyfastor's in New York at eighty dollars  a week. Seven years of this engagement where improvising was often necessary  and tho roles ranged from a bubo in arms to a grandmother, gave,Miss Irwin a  confidence that lias never forsaken her, despite her statement that she cannot  tnko her initial cib at nny pcifonnanee without a littlu qimlin of uncertainty  nnd fear of the audience. Aiignstin Duly who had n keen eyo,for new talent,  gave her an excellent post-graduato course of four years in his theatre, which  was ti splendid training school, and prepared her for her later successes. At tho  ngo of sixteen aim married Frederick \V. Keller who died eight years later leaving  her with4wo sons���������her lovint,   ainrades and tlio pride of her life.

Mack, ������t Ho Uojaf.moot or Ajtlcuituro  Even in England Uie poor havo  a   clianee to-rise, when Ihey arc  clover and energetic an tlie following from a London paper:  "Tlie inability of the alderman  of Dublin to make up their minds  concerning the salary to be paid to  the city's Lord Mayor, who in a  newsvender, resulted in remarkable  fluctuation.), first from ;������.',-,000 a  year to ^.l.GOO, ther. up to .������3,(500  again, and finally b������ck to the lower  figure, draws attention to the fact  tbat tbe Irish metropolis i,s not the  only city in Great Britain that can  boast of a workingman .mayor. It  is a question whether firont Britain cannot show a more democratic  record in this respect than the  United States, popularly supposed  to be the land par excellence of unrestricted opportunity.  It has happened, in two cases at  least, that mayors of English communities have actually risen from  the. workhouse. "Will Crooks was  bom iu the workhouse, and it ia  impossible to imagine a more humble beginning than that. Yet he  was elected Mayor of Poplar and a  Member of Parliament. Oue of  the most respected citizens of  Dcavenport, Alderman Hornbrook,  who served as Mayor with distinction, was born in the workhouse of the same town.  A. former mayor of Leeds, Alderman Scarr by name, when ho was  not maintaining the dignity of the  highest office in the gift of his  fellow-townsmen, was the iudus-  trions dispenser of pennyworths of  sweets from behind the^counter of  his modest store. The contrast  seems even greater wheu it is said  that he put oil his apron to don his  robes of oflice to welcome the late  King Edward and Queen Alexandra in the name of Leeds when  they opened an extension to Leeds  University.  A nother workingman mayor can  boast of a similar royal association.  The Welsh city of Cardiff chose  William Grossman, a stonemason  to be its Lord Mayor during the  year in which King Edward had  promised to pay a visit to tlie city.  Thp late King became so interested  in this man of the people that he  determined to show it in an unprecedented manner and, much to  Grossman's surprise, tapped him on  fie shoulder with a sword, saying,  "Rise, Sir William."  Alderman Jlond has several  times been Mayor of Plymouth, but  those who knew him years ago,  when he began his career as a boy  not have predicted that ho would  ono day be the city's chief magistrate.'-'  The Enthusiast   ���������  Enthusiasm counts for much in  this life. An enthusiast is not  likely to dwell with ton much insistence upon the evil practice of  his neighbors or to examine with  suspicious eye the orthodoxy of  his minister. When the grocer  takes down from the top shelf a  dozen cakes of maple sugar, dusts  them with a feather duster, and  puts theih in the window, the enthusiastic imagines that the sap  has started running. And who  would rob him of his delusion? Not  the grocer'���������nor any other benevolent man.  It may be that ill mannered persons sometimes conspire to rob the  enthusiastic. He may come out of  bargains the way turkeys come out  of a oven���������well browned, but for  all that ho is the backbone of our  country, the source of our national  optimism. Prosperity, after all, is  the fruit of optimism. No fearful  man would make investiments.  The dreamer of dreams would be  useless without enthusiastics who  are ready and anxious to make  dreams come true.  So if we could make life worth  ���������while it is well to cultivate the  ability to see rose-color. Our work  must be delightful of all tasks.  Our hobby should be the prince of  amusements, our wife the prettiest,  our children the best.' We should  believe in ourselves, in an industrious cheerful way, and set out to  prove ourselves in the eyes of all  men.���������Ex.

C, MINING MEWS   I  The Hope News says "that no  matter how alluring the prospects  may look iu Hope or on the trail,  there is no disguising the fact  that in Vancouver skepticism  prcyails regarding the gold possibilities ol the Hope-Steamboat  district." The free use of the  drill and dynamite will soon demonstrate the value of this new  excitement in the Cascade range.  Hot air and the rosy statements  of real estate boosters never make  a permanent mining camp.  The Hope Nugget says that the  Phoenix Smelting Co., has a force  of men to work on a group of  seven claims that the Phoenix  people own at Ladner's Creek, 18  miles up the Coquihalla river.  Several prospectors from Por-  cupiue, Ontario, have gone to the  Steamboat camp.  At Merritt the Nicola Valley  Coal Co., will install a 840,000  coal washing plant, and mine  tipple.  Work is being done on the gold  strike recently made at the Green  Slide, a few miles south of Revelstoke.    A 10 stamp mill will be  installed in a short time, the lead  is   300 feet  wide,   and has been  traced   for   three   miles.    There  are 14 claims located on this lead  divided  into   three groups.    All  these   groups will be developed  this year.  In addition to its gold,  the ore in this camp carries considerable value in silver, and some  platinum.  a well known mining expert. Mr.  E. R. Armstrong, ot Barkerville,  visited the property, that interest  in the proposition became general. Mr. Armstrong has spent  several days examining the rock  and tracing the ledge He has a  theory in connection that it is a  combination of the Barkerville  ledge, where several rich quartz  discoveries have been reported of  late.

FOUND YEARS AGO  Judging from the following  taken from the Hopo Nugget gold  was found in the Steamboat camp  more than DO years ago. The Nugget says:  "There is now living in Kaslo,  Mr. W..McLachlan, aged 82, who  was in Hopo in the employ of the  Hudson's Bay Company in 185(5.  Though advanced in years he still  enjoys health and vigor and looks  after a small orchard and garden  of his own.  "Among his friends of early  days was one Alexander McLean,  a trapper, who often came to the  fort at Hope to sell his furs and  renew his supplies. On one occasion, about ISoG, McLean told Mr.  McLaehlan that he had found rock  containing free gold on a mountain  about 40 miles south from the fort  and near the Skagit River. He  gave Mr. McLaehlan a piece of the  rock, which is still in the hitter's  possession.  "Mr. McLaehlan has often remembered McLean's story of gold  but other interests held him, until  he felt too old for a long trip into  the mountains. Last summer when  the news of Stevens and Grcen-  walt's discoveries spread round tho  province and the name of Steamboat Mountain became familiar, he  at once identified the location with  TO THE PUBLIC  It having been .circulated that all the stores of Greenwood will-be closed every Wednesday afternoon' during the  summer months, I wish to give public notice that the Dry  Goods and Clothing House of C.

ARG������   TUNNEL  I    BOUNDARY MINES    I  The Granby mines resumed operations on Monday after being  shut down for about two weeks.  The Granby smelter at' Grand  Forks received a supply of eastern coke last week, and blew  in  six furnaces early this week.  A crew of eight men under the  ioremanshipof E. Berryman went  to work at the McKinley this  week. They will sleep in tents  until permanent buildings are  erected.  Quartz at Fort George  To the west of Fort George  townsite, and only a mile from  its boundary, lies a huge body of  free-milling gold ore, pronounced  by an expert mining man to be  the largest body of ore he has  ever seen in British Columbia.  The first discoverers of the mineral were A. B. Clarke and Chas.  Whitmeyer, who staked claims on  their discovery last fall, devoting  the winter to development work.  They sent several samples of the  ' ore to reputable assayers in the  United States and Canada, receiving assays showing gold  values from $8 to $200 per ton.  The samples were taken from  very near the surface of the ledge  but as the depth of the lead increases the higher assays were  obtained.  Considerable local interest has  attached to the discovery, but it  was not until a week ago, wl  BASEBALL  Greenwood is becoming famous  for its baseball games, and last  Sunday a large and enthusiastic  crowd witnessed a game that certainly was leagucy, between Phoenix and the home team. The  game was one of the best ever  played in British Columbia, Phoenix being beaten by a score of G to  2,  Not a tally was made until the  fifth innings when Phoenix scored  twice on errors���������a two-bagger and  two singles. This was the last  hit or score made by Phoenix for  Charlton tightened up, aud retired  the visitors in one, two, three  order for the balance of the game.  Greenwood made two runs each in  the fifth, seventh and eighth innings  Mountain, perhaps the first white  prospector in that country."  THE BOOM IN LONDON  The coronation boom in London  has climbed to a dizzy height, and  the English people are all ready  for the excitement next Thursday.  A cable to the Province says:  The huge stands cover every  vacant inch arouud Parliament  Square, front every government  building and hide every Jchurch,  even Westminster Abbey itself, so  that little more than the towers  and the tops of the' buttresses are  visible from the street. All these  are complete from floors to roofs.
