making preparations to commence-
operations on the properties under
liis charge.    Work will be resumed
on tho Golconda group -in South
Dcaduood   about the 1st of June.
An incline shaft was sunk ' on the
property nine years ago to a depth
of about sixty feet, on a lead -from
���i to G feet in width and "several

Ed. A. llain, postmaster at
Midway, wasJn the cily Sunday.
Mr. Hain slates that the newspapers of the district were in error
regarding the burglary of his store
a few days ago. All the burglars
got was a few dollars out of the
till. The registered moil was not
"trifled" with. In fact, such .precautions are taken that it would
bo difficult for a stranger-to .find
the registered. Newspaper items
when - copied and '���'done over,"
liko scandal, become distorted.
The Midway postmaster is very for-
tunato that tho item hasn't placed
him among the missing or the slain
He is also fortu nate that- ho wasn't
reported murdered, for, with the
increasing population and business
of Midway and numerous politicians clamoring for a government
jobi it would havo been difficult
for Mr. Hain t3 prove to the
postmaster-general that ho was
still alive and able tbattond to the
duties of his office. It is to be
hoped the Libewl newspapers of
the district will tako this item ns
the very latest. At 1 p. m. today
tho postmaster at Midway was
alive and in possession of all hia
faculties, and no ray of hope can
bo given office seekers that there
will bo a vacancy in tho near
didn't'think it was possible. Then
the citizen offered to bet ��10. E.
G. replied : " I'l'l bee you S10,000

Before the  publishers knew that 'Lav: Ledoe  would be issued the monopolistic  press began its crusade against this  paper., Our old friend and fellow  "worker in the vineyard," J.

Both bylaws submitted by the  city council for approval of the  property owners 'were carried and  work oii the waterworks extension  and tho electric light system will  bo started at. once. There was a  considerable opposition to the  waterworks extension, many of  property-owners holding that the  volume of water iu Providence  creek was so small that it would  not be of practical value ns an aid  to giving a j crmanent reliable  water supply for the ever increasing requirements of tho city.  Others claimed that the overflow  from the Lind creek system was  greater than the total flow in  Providence. Ilowever the new-  system will be constructed., with a  view, if found necessary, to pump  from Boundary creek. It is tho  duty of the city council to provide  sufficient water, and on them would  rest the blame should the supply  be found inadequate in tho event  of an cmergoncy arising. It would  be unfair to offer any criticism until the plans of the waterworks  committee have been carried to  completion and the new system  given a fair test. As to the electric light, tho council have fully  safeguarded the interests of consumers, and it. is safe to say that  in the construction work there will  be no. labor- troubles, as is unfortunately- the case with another  electric company- now carding on  work in the district.

A smelter manager has been  found who will not suffer I033 by  dosing on Sunday. Who ho is  and where tho smelter is located  aro known only to the editor of  the Victoria Week. Heretofore it  was generally, understood that the  smelters of B. C, whether running  or idle, wcro losing propositions.  It is a pleasure to know that at  least one of them can make a  stand-off by closing down.  The movement towards forming  a 10,000 chib appears to havo died.  With tho development of the  nntural resources of the district of  which Greenwood is the commercial  center, tho city should double its  population in tho next twelve  months. It only requires a little  extra exertion on tho part of the  citizens. Tho Board of Trade  could take tho matter up without  being accused of over-exertion.  Anaconda, B. O, is having an  epidemic of strikes, not through  any fault of the old timers, but  through the new comers. The old-  time resident of Anaconda never  went to work except on his ow.i  terms.

As a matter of fact there is less  drunkeness and  fewer rowdies iii  Western than  in Eastern towns of  the same population.    True, Sunday is much more strictly observed  iu the East than the West.    But  this is a question for the individual  to. settle as his or her conscience  dictates.    The person working indoors all week will naturally have  a different conception of what constitutes a day of rest to the person  working  outside.    So long as a  person does not interfere with the  rights of the community in which  ho resides,  it will bo found impossible to   enforce a law -which  will deprive him of his liberty.   As  the enforcement of any Sunday observance law which may bo passed  by the Dominion  parliament will  bo   by   provincial and  municipal  officers, public opinion  in the different communities in this province will be tho guide as to what  constitutes   a  d.iy  of   rest.   The  tolerant Bpirit   of (ho West  will  allow the Jew or the Seventh Day  Adventist or any other person to  be guided by his or her consience  as to the day of rest and,  within  tho bounds of decency, tho manlier of its observance.   The agita-  tioiwniginated in tho East, where  people aro trying to solve twentieth  contury .problems with   sixteenth  century  brains.   Tho    West  can  afford.to ignore questions on which  depend solit'.Ic that affect the well  being or progress of the province,  It ia uaid that  the  iiii'  influence of  PUNISHING   THE   WRONG MAN.  Sometimes the'complaintiH made  that where ballot boxes have been  stuffed punishment does not follow. This charge cannot ho laid  at tho door of the Scott government of Saskatchewan, which, as  wo all know, Is a branch of the  Laurier administration at Ottawa.  Ballot boxes were stuffed on a  wholesale [dan in tho interests of  the Grit ministry which Sir Wilfrid Laurier- and Governor Forget  conspired to foist upon the new  province. The crime having been  discovered the ministers have administered punishments.'"'  Thero is, however, a flaw in the  distribution of penalties. The government, instead of punishing the  ballot box stiiffers, has visited its  wrath upon, tho magistrates who  tried these men and found them  guilty I Two justices of the peace  at lYineo Albert, J. E. Sinclair aud  W. T. Gilinoiir, were called to  hear tho charge- of fraud laid  aguinst three of the swindling  deputy returning officers. The  men acknowledged their guilt, and  the jtisiices-'fihod them $200a'iicce,  or ������G00 in all.' It was a moderate  charge for "so serious an offense.  A term in the penitentiary would  have been more to the point. But  the laying'on of even a small  penalty has enraged the Liberalism  of the West, and as a result the  two justices aro summarily dismissed from their positions. Mr.  Sinclair has been a magistrate -for  21 years, and Mr. Gilmour, a  Liberal, is a ju=tice of recent appointment. Both have served well  and impartially, and their dismissal is a penalty for punishing  ballot box stuffers. T.-J. Agncw,  J. P., of Prince Albert, has been  sitting at the preliminary examination of the returning officer in  whoso constituency the three  deputies did their nefarious work,  lie has committed the accused for  trial. His action has been fol-  by his removal from tho commission of the peace. The Scott gov  ernment apparently, does not agree  with even the commital for trial of  one - of its supporters accused of  election fraud. The new Liberalism of the West is doing some ex:  traordinarythings. It carried the  province of Saskatchewan by carefully designed robbery. After its  agents had stuffed the ballot boxes  actually had the audacity to elicit  from a judge a decision under  which ballots admitted to be forgeries were counted as genuine.  Now it kicks out of the commission of the peace magistrates who  are honesty enough to punish politicians wlio conspire to rob the  people.  Tho last' crime is the worst of  the bunch. With the dismissal of  the three justices before them the  magistrates of the West aro informed that should they protect  tho elector by punishing or committing for trial officials who steal  elections on behalf of the. Scott  government, or of the Laurier government, their positions will be  taken from them. No man who  fines one of the Ottawa*election  thieves, or orders that he be tried  by a higher court, can retain his  place on the bench. This is the  culmination of the Laurier operations in the West, which commencing with coercion for the people, end with an assault' upon the  integrity and independence of the  magistracy.���������Mail and Empire.

His manner  was  reticent  and he seldom   talked   about   the.  days when the gun and the sword  were so   mighty   in   Kansas   aud  Missouri.     Thirty ' years ago    he  met the Voungers  in "Frisco,   and  they told him about tho then   proposed raid upon Northflold, Minn.)  and urged him to tako  part in   it,  pectus ia now being circulated in  Halifax-.

It has long been felt that the  the dual position of police and fire  chief tended to lessen the efficiency  or both departments. The council  now have an opportunity of separating the departments and atldirg  to the efficiency of both. This  could be done by making the fire  department a purely volunteer one,  with a salary of say 8100 a.year  to the chief "elected by the members of the-brigade. This should  be a sufficient sum to reimburse  him for the time spent in a weekly  inspection of the apparatus. In  addition to this a payment of 35  for each fire call could be made.  The'chief of police should not be  required   to   attend   to   any   but  police duties.    Today the city  of  Giecnwood is practically without  police protection.    The chief is on  the   go   day   and  night,  herding  chickens, enforcing tho provisions  of tho health and other bylaw.--,  and putting in a 12-hour shift at  the fire hall,    liis assistant works  alJ day  on  the streets, attends to  tho the team, and puts iu a shift- at  the fire hall, during which time he  manages to eat and  sleep.   That  the holdup gangs which have been  operating in nearby towns have not  visited   Greenwood   must   be  attributed more to luck than to any  precautions   taken    by   tho   city  authorities.    Because  the city has  been fortunate in  the past is no  excuse for carelessness on the part  of   tho   council.    More   strangers  arc arriving in Greenwood than at  thfMi at any lime since the building of the Columbia and Western.  It is only reasonable to suppose  that an  occasional crook  will be  found among them.    It is possible  that the Great Northern  will be  built from Midway to Grcenwoul  this year,  and  this  will  bring ;i  large number of desirable and undesirable persons into the city.  Owing to the resignation of the  chief of the police and fire departments, the council have an opportunity to reorganize both and we  believe they should be separated.  As the departments are now con-  e'.ituled it is impossible for the j  chief and his 'aseislaut to attend'to  all tho duties imposed on them and  do the work well.  The   C.   P.. R.   has a couple of  steamers   on   the   Atlantic,   that  make the Kuskonook  look  like a  toy ship.    They are called the Empress of Britain and  the Empress  of Ireland  which  names  indicate  the trend of the; C. P.   R.   cowards  the love of female royalty.    These  boats, which sail every little while  cost over ������2,000,000  each.     They  arc   superb   and    strong,     being  shoved along by IS,000 horse power, ar.d capable of carrying  1-1,500  tons.      "Wireless   telegraphy   and  deep sea telephones keep  tho  passengers in'touch   with   land  and  sea.    If you have the price everything comes easy   on these boats,  flic rooms are heated on the sliding scale and devices are used to  minimize  the  horrors of seasickness.

This summer will see considerable  activity for 50 miles around  Windy Arm. The natural resources are principally copper, silver and ice.

''Go and  dig there!''  advised   a   facetious  miner, thinking to play a joke on  the confiding tenderfoot who  had  asked where ho had  better begin  his   mining.      lie pointed  as he  spoke to a crumbling prospect hole,  long before abandoned as ground  utterly barren.    Eut to the eyes of  tlio inexperienced one spot looked  a* promising ns another,  and  the  young fellow promptly lent himself to the ungucsscd humor of the  situation with tho   result-  that  in  loss than a day's work he had  uncovered one of the richest veins of  tellurium   ever   opened    in   that  camp.    Ko was still so ignorant^ of  what.ho had found that when another joker   offered   to   sink   the  shaft forty feet for a half interest  , in. the claim,  tho   opportunity to  relieve a pair  of   blistered   palinu  was hailed as a second godsend.  Yet, that forty-feet of sinking paid  something   liko   650,000,    while,  first and. last,  the great Molvina  mine of Boulder county, Colorado,  lias yielded- close   to   ������700,000.���������  Mining and Engineering   Review,  ���������San Francisco.
