Politicial Equality League held  on   Tuesday   afternoon,   an   interesting letter from Mrs, Gordon  Grant, provincial president of the  league,  was read, in which she  expresses the following opinion  with   regard   to   the  Premier's  answer to the delegation which  he received on February 14th to  consider giving women the vote.  The Premier's message speaks for  itself,  but there is another message to us, between the lines.    It  is this:    "Any government will  grant the vote to women as soon  as they    realize   that   there   is  danger of the men's vote being  effected at the election by a combined, demand ot both sexes for  votes for women."   The reply of  the league to this,  is to be an  organized   scheme of   education  during   the coming mouths,   to  arouse the people of this province  to the necessity for women to be  given the vote.   In order to raise  funds  lor   this   campaign   each  branch ��������� is asked to do its share,  by work, selfdenial or by collecting or entertainments,  or   any  other means.    The meeting decided   to get   up a card   party  shortly   after   Easter,   the   proceeds of which are to be donated  to this purpose,    It was also decided to devote one afternoon  a  month,  at the Reading club, to  the study of the subject of Political   Equality,   such meeting to  be advertised in The Ledge beforehand.     The club   meets on  Saturday next,  March Sth, at 3  p.  tn.  at Mrs.  Kinney's and all  interested are invited to be present.

The Herald remarks that society  is advancing so rapidly in South  Fort George that in a short time  the man who attempts to call off a  square dance in that town will be  arrested, and gentlemen will have  to wear open-faced suits.

Smith,  better known  as "Chateguay," died in the hospital,  on Monday forenoon, aged  52 years.    He had been afflicted  with chronic bronchitis for a long  time,  and tuberculosis developed  about six months ago.    He was  born at Montreal, his parents moving to Ticonderoga, N. Y.,   when  he was quite young.    Early in life  he came west mining and   prospecting in Arizona, New Mexico  and Colorado.    He came  to  the  Boundary seventeen years ago and  ran some of the first tunnels in the  district,  having,  along   with   the  Nair brothers the first contract on  the  Ironsides.    Up  to  about   a  month ago he was foreman at the  Jewel.  There was little base ore in -Chat-  eguay's' formation, and a more  kindly spirit is seldom found in a  mining camp. Ho was of a cheer-  u 1 disposition and smiled even  when he suffered. He was a natural wit and humorist, and cracked  a joke just as Death placed him on  the trail that leads to tbe territory  from' which none have ever returned. The world quits loser and  heaven is ahead by the passing of  ���������Chateguay.'  The funeral took place Wednesday morning, and after service was  held in the Roman Catholic church  the remains were followed to  the cemetery by a large uumber  of friends. The pallbearers were  C. J. McArthur, J. Frost, O.  Dempsey, N. Morrison, P. W.  George and A. Suter. The deceased; left no relatives except an  unmarried sister in Ticonderoga,  to whom he willod his property.

Eat  just the right sort and amount,  and appendicitis, and nearly all  other diseases would become extinct. It would also do away with  the high cost of living, that so  many are roaring about.  most to tell mo how beautiful the  soul of God is, who made them.  Never so audacious a green as is  there in that emooth water, and  never so deep and dark a blue as  that of the thunder-cloud above it.  Off to the northwest lies the  fishing fleet from Dieppe, two  heavy steamers and a swarm of  little sails, like two fat hens and  their chicks.  The fleet seemed as if picked out  in royal colore, ebony, ivory,  emerald and eaetern woods. It is  a clean and jeweled vision, dainty  and perfect.  Yet I have been on fishing boats.  They cannot be justly called dirty.  The term is too mild. They invented dirtiness on fishing crafts.  Ab my vaudeville friend tsays:  "They wrote it."  And thero you have the truth  about men and things. It's not  what they are that matters; it's  their relative position to you. Get  a thing in the right prospective,  the proper distance, and it is beautiful. (Did not Emerson say that  somewhere?) So I Bhall not try to  beautify the world; I will try to  find my right view point.  Gekmanv has about six million  moro inhabitants than the white  population of the entire British  Empire, but we hold the top hand  when it comes to dark skins. The  Germans are a fine class of people,  and will never go to war with  tho Britons, unless it becomes  absolutely necessary for them to do  so, in order to get bread for their  increasing millions. They will always have plenty of Limburger  cheese, and there is no chance of a  war upon its account.]  Nearly all unmarried females  over thirty years of age are crazy,  and a few married ones occasionally have a missing wheel in their  upper stope.   This fact  is borne  out by the mad acts of the suffre-  gettes  in   England.   The   proper  sphere for a woman is to have a  loving husband, and raise from six  to ton  babies.    Any woman who  will do that has no time to stand  around dry good stores and shout  for politicial equality.   The   real  woman does not need a vote, as  sho can influence her husband to  vote as sho desires.  Why does the bride wear a veil?  It is because the veil is symbol of  that which is the most beautiful,  the most sacred and the most inspiring thing in life, which is mystery.'  The sky would not be the wondrous spectacle it is if it did not  often draw the curtain of cloud before its face, or sheath its splendor  in robes of rain.  Nude figures are all well enough  in painting and sculpture, but  daily life among nude people would  be intolerable, for we could no  more respect bare humanity than  we could continue to worship a  God made of stone and* set up in  the street.  Wonder and worship will not  live in the sun. Fairies and elves  will come and dance only in the  shimmery moonlight. Our subtlest joys are half brothers to our  great fears, and live in dark  places.  be issued by tlie Commission of  Conservation. The fur value of a  silver fox varies from about 8300  to about $2,500 according to the  quality of the pelt, but tbe prices  paid for foxes for brooding purposes far exceed fchif*. In 19.10,  foxes wore sold for breedors at  from $3,000 to $4,000 per pair, i.e.,  not far above their fur value.    Iu  1911, prices rose to $5,000 a pair  and about littering time, early in  1912, ono pair sold for $20,000. In  tho latter part of 1912, old breeders  were variously valued at from  $1S,000 to $35,000 a pair.  This   remarkable   rise   in   the  prices  has  boen  due to the keen  demand for breeding stock by persons or companies wishing to establish themselves in the fox-ranching business.    So keen i.s the demand  for   "breeders"   that not  a  fox fit for breeding purposes is being slaughtered for its fur.    Ultimately,  the value of the silver fox  must   be   determined  by its   fur  value and  not by the prices now  being   paid   by   breeders.     It   i.s  plain, also, that, in the course of a  few years,   tlio numerous ranches  in process of formation and which,  at the present time,   aro creating  such a demand for breeding stock,  will  be producing   pelts   for   the  market.    Tho resultant increase in  supply   is   certain   to   lower   the  prices paid for skins of this kind in  the fur  markets.    While their is  undoubtedly a   sound    basis   for  building up a paying industry  in  fox   farming,   the   public   should  weigh  the  matter  very   seriously  before  investing   "their  money  in  companies    whose   capitalizations  aro based on the remarkable high  prices now prevailing for breeding  stock.    It should not-be overlooked  that nearly all those who havo  made  large ��������� fortunes  in the business have done so by selling stock  for breeding purposes, not for their  pelt3.  It  is estimated that in October  1912. there were about SOO silver  foxes in  captivity  in  Canada,  of  which  about  fif-O  were in Prince  Edward    Island.    The    principle  points   at   which   tho industry is  carried  on  are around  Alberton,  Summerside,    Charlottetown   and  Montague     in     Prince    Edward  Island;   Quebec 'city in   Quebec;  Port Elgin in New Brunswick and  Wyoming  iu Ontario.    Each pair  of foxes produces one litter a year  consisting of from ono to nine pups,  and averaging about 3A- pups to a  litter.    They are sold for delivery  in the first week in September and  tho fur is at its best the last week  in   December.     So   high   is   the  speculative fever running iu  the  industry that many of the unborn  pups of 1913  have already been  purchased and are partly paid for.  ���������M. J. P.  the crop could be doubled. A  bright young man with a span  of well fed mules hitched to  an up-to-date cultivator will do so  much better work so much more  cheaply than the hoe that many  will not believe tho work possible  even when they see it done.  Whatever may be the result of.our  new department of agriculture, it  will at least be tho means of showing modern and proper methods of  farming, and no one can conceive  what this means to Brazil.  "If the people of the United  States," says Dr. Cooke, "could  only realize the opportunities for  business in Brazil they would certainly get busy."

Keeping Secrets  It is generally and flippantly re-  inatkod that women can not keep  secrets, but every woman knows  deep down in her heart that sho  holds dearly many secrets that no  no one will over root out.  It takes an intelligent woman to  guard another's secret. But there  are scores of women who hold  secrets of vital importance to others  without a t bought of the' magnitude of their importance.  A man pays a woman a compliment when he confides his dearest  secrets to her. It is human to  sympathize, and generally a man  tells his secrets for sympathy.  Tbo women who can not be  trusted, are the egotists, women  who like to be entertaining, whose  vanity compels them to add another  wonder to any remarkable statement mado by any one in their  presence. Such women aro a menace to .society.  two are the constituent elenients of  nature's health formula, upon  which science itself has not been  able to improve. Science may work  a cure for ill-health, but the secret  of health itself is the obedience of  natural laws and the living of normal life. And since health is a  bequest from the child to the man,  tho health question primarily concerns childhood. The child who  lives largely in the open, with exercises that fill tho lungs with  fresh air, and who sleeps by a window that is not closed to keep  health out, has greatest chance of  sturdy life. Of all the modern  calls back to the land, to simplicity, to nature, there is no one more  rational than that which accepts as  true and wise the gospel of sunshine and the open air. It becomes tho chief purpose of modern  society to see to it that the children  of today should be given the utmost chance to avail themselves of  its truth and wisdom. Sunshine  is better than serum, and a capital  substitute for it. ���������Ottawa Citizen.  WESTERN - - HOTELS.

One Billion Bacteria  In Primitive Brazil  Thinking Themes  As I write this I am sitting on  the sands at the beach at Puys,  which is a small village near  [Dieppe, in Franco.

The deepest pleasure of the soul  is not in that which is, but in that  which may be.  Strip the dreams from life and  you have robbed it of ita best part;  you have taken away its veil.  The bridal veil of life is death.  It is thrown over our loved and  lost; so they become our inspiration.���������-Dr. Frank Crane.  Silver Foxes  Dr. V. T. Cooke, superintendent  of experimental farms for Brazil,  has written for the February Dry-  Farming   aud   Eural  Homes the  first published account of the dry-  work  which   that country is just  beginning for the development of  250,000 square miles of its largely  idle   territory.     Dr.   Cooke   was  formerly in charge of the dry-farm  experiment work in Wyoming. He  went to Brazil   fourteen   months  ago, and that nation is said to be  paying him 81,000 a month in gold  for the purpose of learning how to  do it.  "It is heartbreaking," says Dr.  Cooke, "to see what primitive  methods are used to plant and  cultivate.

For most of the  German diplomatic corps seek their  offices for the opportunity to meet  and marry rich American girls, or  they are married to rich American  women whoso ambition aud money  obtain for their husbands diplomatic positions.  That such women can not keep  secrets can well be imagined, for  they are light minded, as a rule,  and are faithful to no country or  family.  Nature demands faithfulness to  one's native land, marriage demands faithfulness to .one's husband; the combination is difficult  and the beauty of peaceful happiness must be unknown.  A German woman, married to  an American diplomat, would suffer  in just the same way; she surely  would be true to her fatherland.  It's human nature to love your  own country more when in a foreign land than you do at home.  Do we not see it every day from  the invaders who with smiles insult us.  *'���������'*   *������������������".���������;���������  Tho keeping of a secret is neither a masculine nor a feminine  trait, and I venture to say that a  valuable secret is safer in the keeping of a good woman than in the  keeping of a good man.  When a woman has a sense of  honor, and all clever women have,  they are adamant and men are not.  The German decree ia a gentle  hint to Americans to keep their  daughters at home.  Ambitious women can dabble  in politico here as well as abroad.  And as for men?���������Lillian Russell.  As soon as the roots of a leguminous crops begin to grow, if the  soil is sweet���������that is, does not lack  lime���������tiny bacteria, so small that  it takes a powerful glass to see  them,  attach   themselves   to   the  roots of the pea or other leguminous crop and start to housekeeping,  building a  little nodule,  as it is  called.    It takes only about twenty  minutes to complete the growth of  one of these entities, but they do  not die.    They simply divide themselves in two, each starting a new  nodule or adding to the one already begun, and dividing again.in  twenty minutes and so on', ad in-  tiinitum,   multiplying   at  such a  wonderful rate that it has been estimated  that if there waB one in  good condition here a week ago,  thero aro a billion  now.    These  little houses, or nodules, grow into  great hives until soon they are as  large as walnuts on the roots of the  plants.    Their function?   are   peculiar and wonderfully interesting  as well as profitable.  The air,  as yon know, is four-  fifths   nitrogen.    Nitrogen is   the  most expensive fertilizer that you  buy aud it is positively essential to  plant life.   Now these little  entities suck air into the earth and  erate the soil.    It is just as necessary for a plant to have air as it is  for an animal to breathe it.   They  therefore do the splendid service  of bringing the air into the soil,  and in bringing it in they digest  tho nitrogen that is in the air and  convert it into mineral nitrates and  are soluble in water and immediately available for  plant   food.  It is estimated that under favorable  conditions where an acre of land is  well inoculated the bacteria will  bring $20 worth of nitrogen to the  acre within  the year; that is, it  would cost $20 and more to buy  and put upon the land the nitrogen  that these little entities have drawn  from the atmosphere into the soil.  ���������Col.

"As I was saying, we sailed past the  Weary islands and was leaving 'em  far astern when Captain Fish took a  notion that the water -we'd, taken on  at Calcutta was bad tasting, and so  we put back to the Wearys for a supply of fresh water. You can't beat  them tropical islands for cold, sparkling springs of pure water.  "The outermost one of the Weary  Islands Is a tiny little one that is separated from the others by forty miles  or so.    We was nearest thnt island,  which wasn't much more than a coral  reef covered with sand and with trees  growing on  It and springs of water  from somewhere down below.

'"Excuse mo. mister, but I guess  you'll have to tell me about it,' I said  as humble as I could muster, for I  could see he was easily riled, and I  wanted to hoar the story.  '"Got any 'baccy, mate?' he asked  coolly.  " 'Yes, and a pipe.' I says, and gave  him all I had. As soon as he was  smoking a more peaceful look came  into his. face, and he seemed almost  civilized.  " 'I'm the last inhabitant.* he said at  last.  " 'Last one of where?* I nsked.

"'My friend,' says I, for I ,-was  moved by his emotion, 'why spend the  'rest of your days in this forelorn island in the sea? Why can't you leave  it and go Into the.world?'

'"What's the matter with the one  that's in here now?' I asked, and at  that he jumped up and gave me a  queer look.  '"In here? Oh. Lord!' he yelled,  and began to leap toward that cocoa-  nut palm. He was up it like a streak,  and once more 1 saw his brown face  looking like a ripe cocoanut as he  peered out. But the Indus was lying  behind him, and he didn't see her at  first.  "When he did he gave vent to one  whoop and came down the tree and  made for the Indus, where the men  were going back and forth carrying  water on board without so much as  looking to see what had become of  me. 1 expect any one of 'em would  have been glad if I'd never gone back,  for some oue would have liked my.'  berth.  "Well, sir, that man-monkey went  down to the boat and persuaded the  sailors to take him out to the Indus,  and Jabez, would you believe it when  I tell you that Captain Barnabas Fist-  took   that   heathen   savage   monkey  man on board the Indus and put him  in the crew and made a man of him?

I'd have enjoyed it better, Ananias. If Captain'  Fish hadn't told that same story here-  last night, setting in that very chair,  only the story was different in soma  ways."  "How was It different?" Ananias  was evidently taken aback, for hla  face reddened even to the lids of hla.  bulging light blue eyes.  "Captain  Fish  he said  he* stopped:  for water at the Weary Islands andS  that he sent his first mate (he didn't  mention no names) ashore with some-  men   after  fresh   water.

"He was a charming companion, one  of the very best, but he was' a crazy  motha nd beetle hunter and would run  about on the hottest days with a landing net to catch butterUIos and other  insects. He, moreover, collected and  treasured snakes, scorpions and loathsome beasts of all sorts. He had never  been under fire before and had on two  or three occasions talked to me about a  man's feelings while undergoing his  baptism of tire.  "Well, we were in rather a hot corner, and he was standing to my right  rear when I heard an exclamation,  aud. turning round, saw him lying on  the ground, having dropped his sword  and revolver.

How  an   Eloquent   Kentucky   Lawyer  Freed a Guilty Man.  John   J.   Crittenden,   the   eloquent  Kentucky lawyer of a past generation,  was once defending a murderer.   Every one knew the man was guilty, but  the eloquence of Crittenden saved tiiru.  "Gentlemen," said Crittenden at the  end of his great plea, " ��������� to err is bu-  man, to forgive divine.'    When God  conceived the thought of man's creation he called to him three ministering  virtues, who wait constantly upon the  throne���������justice, truth and mercy-and  thus addressed them:  "'Shall we make this man?'  "'0 God, make him not," said Justice sternly, 'for he will surely trample upon thy laws.'  "'And Truth, what sayest thou?'  '"O God, make him not. for none but  God is perfect, and he will surely sin  against thee.'  " 'And Mercy, what sayest thou?'  "Then   Mercy,   dropping   upon   ber  knees   and   looking   up   through   tier  tears, exclaimed:  "'0 God, make him! I will watch  over him with my care thi'oiigb all the  dark paths he may bave to tread.'  "Then, brothers. God made man and  said to him: 'O man. thou art the child  of Mercy. Go nnd deul mercifully  ���������with all thy brothers.'"-Denver He  publican.  Oily Petrels.

MINING NEWS   |  Sooooo-o-ockk>o*o-<*k*^^  Tho Lome creek placers, on the  Skeena river, which have produced  more or. less intermittently for  years, are under new ownership,  and now bid fair, with intelligent  and persistent working, to eclipse  all previous records of gold production.  The property of the Dry Hill  Hydraulic company, covering two  and one-half miles of placer leases  on the Lorn creek bottoms, has  been bonded by a syndicate, of  which H. Carpenter, B. J. Carpenter, M. P. Revesbech and Wm.  Tuttle constitute the active head.  Mr. H. Carpenter and Mr. Revesbech are now at the Irving, and  the former, iu an interview with a  reporter of The Sun, spoke very  optimistically of their prospects for  making a nice clean up.  ������������������The ground has been worked  in the past principally as a ground  sluicing proposition," said Mr.  ' Carpenter. "The old fellows who  originally located the property  drifted on bed rock and ground  sluiced gravel thus extracted.  Then when the company took over  the business, they tore out the  whole face of gravel with giants.  Starting on a ninety-foot face they  washed out about 300 feet of the  channel, and when they quit had a  face about 125 feet high. It is  estimated that they took ont about  8100,000.  "That the system they used was  not more successful was due to the  fact that the ilnmo was not properly constructed. Under their system they never got more than four  weeks of an uninterrupted run,  where they should been able to  tear things loose for six months  straight every year. Then, too,  they only got 750 inches of water  through the flume, where they  should   have had at least   1,500  inches.  "In the winter time the flume  was allowed to break loose, and it  cost at least $20,000 iu the spring  to repair it.  "The present owners will overcome these difficulties. We have  already done enough work to  prove that there aro two pay  streaks on tho ground, ono on bed  rock. Our plan is to drift on these  pay streaks.  "Wc will build a new flume taking water from Lome creek, and  clean np the bed rock and clay  streak. This is our progam for  next summer The old-timers depended on tho spring froshets for  water, but wo will obtain a uniform and continual supply from  Lome creek, by spending about  $3,000 on flumes.  "We will drive a double track  tunnel, and work tho whole season  drifting and hauling the gravel out  in ears, piling it up in tho winter,  aud washing in the spring and  summer months. Wo can get on  Lome Creek a vegnlar 'California  season,' of six months sluicing.  "We have already driven our  tuunol about 300 feet, and havo  pretty well demonstrated the  course and' width, of the pay  streaks as well as proving the  value of the bed rock gold deposits.  The gold is coarse, and while an  exact average cannot yet be given,  we are satisfied that the gravel we  are taking out will go between ten  and fifteen cents to the pan, and  there are about 150 pans to the  yard. We are following an old  channel with our drift, and while  we are undoubtedly leaving some  gold above us,' we are also escaping the cost of handling a mass of  gravel anywhere from 175 to 400  feet in depth. The greatest values  in gold such as we are extracting,  are naturally on bed rock, and  this is what we are saving.  "Our preliminary operations in  preparing for systematic work, was  principally panning, and we had a  great amount of dead work to do  in cleaning up the old workings.  The largest nugget I have noticed  up to the present time weighed.  $4.50. We can figure on sluicing  from May 1 till November l."  Lorne creek is a branch of the  Skeena, and comes in 129 miles  from Prince Rupert and about  fifty miles below Hazelton.  The Carpenter brothers are experienced placer and quartz miners, their specialty being, iu the  latter form of mining, the development of free gold leads. They  have mined in most of the high  grade camps of the American continent, and with their experience  it is now certain that the Lome  creek placers will at last be given at  least a fair chanco to demonstrate  their value.���������Vancouver Sun.

Hill of Montreal, managing.director of the Pacific Coast  Coal Mining Company, lias returned to town from an inspection of  tho company's mines at South  Wellington and Suquash, at the  upper end of Vancouver Island.  At the Hotel Vancouver today ho  stated that development work had  been  very   satisfactory   since  his  last visit.  The output at South Wellington  has been increased from 250 to 000  tons a day in less than six months,  owing to the vigorous policy adopted by Mi" John H. Tonkon, general manager, who formely held a  similar position with the Crows  Nest Pbss Coal Company. Under  tho terms of a contract 7,000 tons  are being supplied to the C. P. R.  monthly. The new shafts are now  being sunk between the old South  Wellington mine and the company's docks at Beit Harbor, a  distance of seven miles. They  have attaiued a depth of GOO feet,  and it is expected that the coal  will be encountered shortly. Mr.  Hill says the production will ere  long be brought; up to a total of  1,500 tons daily.  At Suquash the development  will permit of a daily output of  500 tons. The company i.s arranging to install a plant and start  shipping shortly. It is controlled  by Montreal capital, and owns  20,000 acres of coal lands on Vancouver Island.���������Vancouver Province.    J. W. Osborn, J. J. Moak and  other Spokane men have taken a  bond on the Waterloo and Fou-  tenoy group of claims at Camp Mc-  Kinncy, B. C, fourteen miles  northwest of Molson, for the consideration of ������50,000 from Dr. C.  K. Merriam, Patrick C. Shine and  the the heirs of the late Benjamin  Merrick, the original owners. The  new proprietors will start operations as soon as the weather permits.   .  The Waterloo, under tho management of Denni3 Clark, produced about $40,000 in gold. The  mine has been idle for several  years, however, as it was discovered that tho vein dipped into  into the Fontenoy property.  The mines are equipped with a  ten-stamp mill aud adequate hoisting machinery, costing about $10,-  000 which are driven by water  power. A three mile flume has  recently been constructed. There  are about 500 tons of ore on the  dump ready for treatment, and the  new owners intend to start work  as soon as possible. It will require  from three to four weeks to put  the machinery in shape and to  pump the water out of the mine.  A large number of men will be employed so as to push the development as rapidly as possible under  the personal direction of Mr. Moak.  The reviving of this one time  famous boundary camp will be  watched with a great deal of real  interest and many of tho old  timers still hold that McKinney  has tlie making of a fine producer  of gold.���������Oroville Gazette.

Development work was continued with a  slightly increased force, and it is  now reported that a vein of silver-  lead ore, twenty-seven feet wide  and of paying value, has been cut.  It is also reported that the ore  body has already been proved to  bo very extensive.  The camp is almost, equidistant  from Hope, Merritt and Princeton,  but both present and prospective  transportation facilities aro all in  favor of Hope as the base of supplies and port of shipment, and  Hope is much nearer to Vancouver  than either Merritt or Princeton is  to any other large city from which  supplies and equipment can be  brought.  It is also announced, presumably with the owner's authority,  that they intend to go ahead with  mining, work on a large scale so  that they will have a large tonnage  waiting for tbe first branch that  connects them to any railway system that will give access to smelters.  The name of "Patsy" Clark of  Spokane, is mentioned in connection with the enterprise. Mr.  Clark is one of the most cautious  and most successful mining operators in the North-West, and if it  be true that he is associated with  it, thero need be no doubt that the  mineral has been found.  Apart from the Sky-Line group  there are four or five other properties on which considerable money  has been spent and with promising  results. The prospect of early  transportation cannot fail to stimulate activity in these aud give Now  Leadville immediate standing as a  mining camp.
