Deceased was about forty years of  age, and had,been working in the  "Norden kitchen for some time. He  left there a couple of days previous to liis death. Very little is  known about him "or where his  relatives, if any, reside. The body  lias not been recovered.  Ualph Stokes, of Jonanuedburg,  South Africa, representing the  Mining World, was in the city this  week. After looking at the mines  ' iif" the" Bomi'dary he , will go eastj  ���������** stopping olT at Moyie to examine  tlie St. Eugene. From there he  will go to Cobalt, Sudbury, and to  the asbestos deposits of Quebec.  After this Mr. Stokes goes to Lon  don, Eng., and from there back to  Johannesburg.  Tlie Kettle river, is higher at  present than it has been for years.  Part of the river bank at the approach to the Ingrim bridge was  washed out this week and although  teams cross tlie bridge it is not  safe for travel. A close watch is  being kept on the bridge at Midway. As it is a very substantial  structure, tlie only danger to it is  from logs jamming on the piers.  Government Agent McMynn went  down to Midway Monday and all  necessary precautions are being  taken to save both tho Ingrim and  Midway bridges.  R. A, Nicholson   returned  from  the coast Saturday,   and  left for  Stewart lake Tuesday, having come  back to tlie .Boundary to get expert  axemen,   in  which  quest  he..." was  successful.    Among  those who accompanied him were T. M. Gulley,  Thos.   Hemmerle,   It.   Hutchius,  Kenneth McKenzie, Frank Mosher,  Dave Jones, Dave Bretty and Jas.  Cameron.      From   Victoria  "they  will go by government steamer to  Port   Essington,    and   by    river  steamer to Ifazeiton.

Thomas, of Boundary  Falls, formerly superintendent of  the Dominion Copper company's  smelter there, and now general  manager since the departure of J.  T. Drummond for Cobalt, came  ovenast week and went up ito  Voigt's camp, where the company  have a bond on an important group  of claims. He' was very much  pressed for time, having an engagement in the Boundary in connection with some labor troubles that  developed there and was making  forced marches to get back in  time.���������Hedley Gazette.  C. Scott and Mrs. Galloway were  in the city a few days this week.  Mr. Galloway has been busy all  spring on his ranch near Grand  Forks. He has a crop of thirty  acres of fall wheat looking well,  has planted several hundred fruit  trees this season, and will have a  considerable acreage under grain  and vegetables. lie says Martin  will have 900 trees bearing fruit  this season, and all the ranchers  on Grand Prairie aro making  money and making it fast.    \  The case Gillespie v. Sinclair,  on which the defendant was sent  up for trial by R. G. Sidley, J. P.,  came up for trial Saturday before  His Honor Judge Brown, under  the Speedy Trials Act. A. M.  Whiteside appeared for tho crown  and J. P. McLeod for the prisoner.  It appears the prisoner had borrowed $S00 from Mrs. Gillespie of  for trial. His honor allowed Sinclair to go on suspended sentence.  The testimony was somewhat conflicting, and as in most cases where  money is at Btake the bias was in  ratio to the amount involved,or its  value to those concerned.  NO   SETTLEMENT   YET  Mine Managers  and Miners "Failed  to Come to Terms. !  At the meeting held in Phoenix  Monday evening* between the managers of the large mines of the  Boundary, and representatives of  thc Miners' union, no agreement  was reached. In fact, in-some  cases, the managers asked for a reduction.of the old scale.  About a month ago, owing to the  increased cost of living, the miners  of Phoenix asked for an increase  of 10 per cent, all round. About  that time the coal'strike was on in  East Kootenay, and for lack of  coal and coke the Granby and Dominion Copper company's mines  shut.down. Before starting work  again it was deemed advisable to  finally setfe the difficulty. J. E.  McAllister of the B. C. Copper Co.  and A. B. Hodges of the Granby  wont east presumably to consult  with the directors of their respective companys,  and,  possibly, on  gradually increasing, without any  demand for an increase on the part  of "the men. Besides the mines,  the companies must. make some  profit out of their stores, boarding  houses, etc.  If under such favorable circumstances the mines caunot be made  to jmy, only two conclusions can  be arrived at���������jjismanagement or  misrepresentation in" the sale of  stock. - Which is it, gentlemen ?  The business men of Greenwood  are simply onlookers. If the worst  comes to the .worst, comes to the  worst they can pack up and move  to some'place where turnips are  grown and eaten, not invested  withiauthority.  From Nevada.  Dan McAskill, writing to a friend  in this city from Ryolite, Nevada,  gives some interesting information  about that country. Following is  his letter in part:  I met an old partners Jack R.  Dempsey, who used to be iu Greenwood and Phoenix, a'nd the two of  us made a nine, weeks'  trip with  "a* c  burros. We had a'' very.;nice trip  of it but did not strike ������������������anything  very exciting. ��������� However.'- if a man  gets into a good locality it doesn't  make much difference -whether he  has anything or not in this coun-  wells���������144 of them���������and the "skeletons of, their horses bleaching in  the sun  here1 yet,    And the sun  does Bhirie here.'\ On the 15th of  April  when   we   were   there   the  thermometer registered 108 in. the  shade, but iu July it climbs up to  130.    Things grow sort of lively-  six   crops  of  hay  every, season.  Death.yalley has been exaggerated,  but at its best it is bad enough.'  I  also had the pleasure of meeting  the notorious Walter Scott, a common  ordinary individual; a kind  of good fellow to meet in the hills  but he is about played out down  down here.   J was in  Green water  and met Dan Bresnahan and Rocky  Ryan. ; They are both doing well.  I also met Louis Bosshart.    He is  prospecting.     Prospecting   is not  so nice here as in, the north, and  you   will  wake up any morning  and see a tarantula crawling out  from your bed.   ,- .  The Celebration.1  NEW PLANT GOING.

Some timo after tho cash  and noto were exchanged, [Mrs.  Gillespie concluded that the money  had been optained by misrepresentation, and laid an information before Mr.  Sidley,  who committed  their return, to give an air of  finality to any proposition which  they should make to the men.  Monday evening representatives of  both parties met in Phoenix and  talked matters over, with the result  thatthey are not as near a settlement now as they were before the  consultation.  A strike or   a   lock-out is ho  longer of interest to the business  men   of   Greenwood.      What   in*  terests them more is the permanency of the camp.    Are the big  propositions of the district mines  or have they been floated for stock  jobbing   purposes.     The  Granby  and the B. C. Copper were stocked  when copper ranged from 10 to 12.  During their whole development to  a shipping stage copper was never  more than 10.    During the period  of  development  these companies  were selling stock on the assurance  that dividends could be paid with  copper at 13.    The wages were the  same then as they are today.   The  lowest quotation  for copper Monday,  while the consultation   was  was being held, was 23, an increase  of SO per cent ever the dividend-  paying   basis   of  the  {promoters.  Tho minors are asking an increase  of 10 per cent.    In the past month  flour alone has increased  18 per  cent, and other staples have been  try,   for they sometimes raise an  excitement  and boom   on almost  nothing.    If one ever came across  a   district    with   showings    like  Greenwood down  here lie would  get all the money he could walk  away with.  Still they have opened  up   some  good camps here with  mines in them from surface showings, so that a man from the north  is liable to overlook good  things,  but the main thing is to get locations where the next boom will be.  You can sell claims for good money  here that would go a-begging in B.  C.   On our way back  we crossed  Death  valley.    It was  about 12  miles wide where we crossed it,  and then traveled down the bottom of the valley for thirty miles  or so.    Death valley is certainly a  God-forsaken place, but hardly as  bad as pictured. The valley propolis about seventy miles long and  there are good springs every twenty  miles or so.   Right in the bottom  of the valley there is a ranch owned  by Borax Smith. It certainly looks  good to a man after traveling over  the desert.    Fine water, and great  big cotton woods give you all  the  shade you want. One would hardly  believe this, right at the bottom of  the valley,  about 250 feet below  sea level.    We also saw whore the  first emigrants perished at the Salt  chinery  has   taken    about   eight  months, and at a cost of about  thirty  thousand dollars,  but the  company will  be well repaid by  the better service they will be able  to  supply to consumers,  and no  doubt at lees cost.   The company  have ample power from Boundary  creek and Long lake to supply a,  city with five times the population  of Greenwood.     Alredy they are  supplying   power   to  one  of the  mines of the district,  the Moreen,  and will doubtless supply electric  power to others.   The line will be  run to Midway in the near future  and   that   town    furnished   with  power and light.  E. G.

The Golden Eagle is a high-  grade gold proposition adjoining  the Volcanic. Before the advent  of the railroad into Grand Forks  ore was sent by wagon to the Trail  smelter. This mode of shipment  was, however, too expensive, so  the mine was closed down and has  been up to the present. A considerable amount of development  work has been done and there is a  hoisting plant belonging to the  property.

Harboll, a traveling revivalist, got  two years on the rock pile for  whipping his twelve-year-old son  so severely that he may not recover. The boy had been playing  baseball on Sunday.  It is said that Hon. R. L. Borden and Hon. Geo. E. Foster will  tour the West this summer. The  Hon. Geo. R and the member for  Yale-Cariboo might arrange for a  joint debate in Greenwood. They  needn't be afraid of empty benches.  All of Greenwood and Eholt, and  part of Midway would be there.  Ik a criminal action before His  Honor Judge Brown, under .the  Speedy Trials Act, it came out in  evidence that Smith Curtis had  got the price of two ranches from  the witness, presumably with a  view to finding a purchaser. The  ranches were in the Similkameen  district. The negotiations took  place a few days previous to the  election. Since, the election, strange  to say, the bottom has dropped out  of the deal. This is regrettable as  the prices named���������$15,000 and  and 810,000-were considered fairly  good values for the ranches.  It was remarked a few days ago  iu this city that Anarchist mountain furnished the principal business of the county court at Greenwood. For ten years the mountain has been one of the most prosperous sections of British Columbia ; depression in the mining  did not affect them ; strikes did  disturb them, but at every sitting  of court, whether from habit or  cause, the same faces appear, get  cinched, cinch, or give evidence,  and go home losers. "With some  of them the attendance at court  has become mechanical. A prosperous community like Anarchist  mountain should be able to settle  differences of a few cents without  bothering the judge, and keeping  thc lawyers up nights manufacturing questions and arguments.  Now that regular passenger  trains have been running through  to Oroville for some time, and stage  connections to the Similkameen,  the mail to Sidley, Camp McKinney, Rozk Creek and the Similkameen should be sent daily over the  V., V. & E. The amount that the  nowspapers of Canada are weekly  being robbed out of through extra  postage should be applied* towards  maintaining a decent mail service  in the west, and thus give publishers an indirect return for the  extra outlay to which they have  been put. The member for Yale-  Cariboo might, in his leisure moment'', devise some scheme whereby the intellect, if such exist, of  of the postmaster-general may be  awakened to some intelligent con  ception of the postal needs of the  West. It may be that the postmaster-general does not understand  conditions here.* He may have  arrived at erroneous conclusions in  reference to the people of the interior of British Columbia tthrough  long aud intimate association with  his own constituents : The people  of the interior of B. C. both read  and think, and being both readers  and thinkers naturally wish the  to have the latest arid best newspapers. ThiB boon they are deprived of through the poor mail  service which the people have.  This banking system of  Canada  is being rather severely  criticized  by some Western journals, and is  being compared   with  the mushroom   institutions   in the United  States.    There are, of course, two  sides   to   every  question. ���������  While  every one who wants money in his  business or to promote his schemes  would like to see the bankers less  careful in advancing loans, yet this  carefulness is about all the protection depositors have.    At present  throughout the West, and especially in the coast cities, real estate  is   inflated   far beyond its value,  and bankers cannot be blamed for  not advancing money on fictitious  valnes.    Victoria and  Vancouver  have had boomB before.    The reaction came, hundreds of working-  men who had purchased property  and were building homes lost their  positions, their property and their  homes and  their  families were at  the point of starvation.   The banks  are the governors that regulate the  commercial    machinery,    and   as  soon as the belt flies oft', look out  for 'business failures and general  industrial depression.    The wildcat investments of tin-horn bankers  in the United States a few years  ago resulted in the Coxey armyjaud  almost a revolution.    Here in the  Boundary district many of the old  time prospectors, and possibly the  banks also, would have been bet-  off had there been fewer "Finu  cane bonds." ' In other than times  of extreme depression the banks  of Canada can  be depended 'upon  to furnish funds   for carrying on  legitimate enterprises.    If they do  more than this, they become speculators, and cease to be safe custodians of the funds of depositors.  Tho residents of this district will  petition to have regular sittings of  the assize and county courts held  alternately here and at Sidley.

I am a Socialist; first, because  of ��������� the instinct within all of us  which inspires us to do all we can  to put'humanity in harmonious relationship with the individual. It  is instinctive with ns to desire liar-,  mony throughout the universe, aud  in no place is that instinct more  prouounced than in the desire that  tho human relations shall he harmoniously arranged. Harmony  naturally means that there shall be  'an equality of material conditions,  that we shall no longer see as we  do today some people enormously  rich and rolling in luxury while  large masses of people strive for  barely the necessities of life. There  is no reason ,for the existence of  such a condition, because poverty  is not a result of lack of' world  riches, but is owing to the fact that  we do not distribute the riches that  we can and. do produce with machinery.  It is just as natural for us to desire harmony in the 'relationship ;Of  man with humanity as it is for us  to desire harmony in the relation  of. our ' finger to our body. The  finger must be related properly  to the body ; that is, it must lie  out of pain if we expect to have a  proper body and enjoy life. It is  the same way with an individual,  as a member of society ; so long as  one 'man is improperly treated,  starved or slighted iu the least degree, the. whole body of society  suffers. The growth of the instinct for the body to relieve the  finger of pain was a natural instinct, a natural developmeut. A  man deserves no credit for taking  his hand out of the fire ; he can't  help doing it because the pain  drives him to do it, and if a man  had no feeling aud let his hand remain in the fire it would be destroyed, and destruction of the  hand would probably mean destruction of the body. Therefore,  I say, the instinct of taking the  hand out of the fire grows up  naturally with the development of  the organism. It is no credit to-  the organism in any way nor any  credit to the member, any more  than it is a credit for a tree to  grow.  And I am a Socialist because I  want to take the hand���������the poor,  the sick, the unhappy, the criminal���������out of the fire, that the body  of humanity may be healed and  harmonized.  We know that with all savage  tribes the injury of one is looked  upon to be an injury of all; they  take care of their poor, and iu battle care for their women and  children. In the army, a man ia  expected to die for his comrades  and they for him. The army is  made up of units, and if organized  units did not take care of the individuals, then there would he no  organism at all, no army.  And I am a Socialist' because I  boliove in organized units, and in  living, as well as dying, for and  with our comrades.  I am a Socialist because it is the  aim of Socialism to insure food,  shelter, clothing, comforts, to all,  to destroy "class," to destroy  poverty and privation���������and crime,  which spriugs from the incentive  or environment of poverty and  privation ; and to establish honest  labor as the only purchasing power.  The present institution of society  ia based upon the competitive system in which the worker^is not  paid according to what he produces, but according to the least  lie can live upon. The result of  this is that there is a surplus produced by tho worker working with  modern machinery, which he cannot got and which is automatically  turned over to the rich in the  shape of rent and profits. This  surplus tho rich iu turn are using  in tho development of the capitalist  system���������building more and more  m  m&  ;d-]'i-m-fea������a  and more machinery ; as time goes  on this machinery becomes "overproduced," because, after all, it is  built in order to supply the necessities of life to the ��������� working class,  and it take9 little labor and time  to produce mere necessities. "When  we have a period in . which this  machinery cannot be. used, there is  what is popularly called a crisis���������  "over-production."' When this  next occurs, when we have unemployed men���������starving men���������many  will see the injustice of the existing  system much better than they do  today. This approaching crisis  will make the world see tlie prac:  ticability of Socialism, it will be  viewed not so much as a matter of  justice to the poor, but as a necessity to prevent their starvation.  I see the indications of tho approach of this problem in the"  Trust, which is an attempt to curtail production. ' The Trust is a  sign that the capitalists themselves'  admit that more is being produced  than can be used under the present  system.  I am a Socialist because I believe  it is 'the control by individuals  of the Bources and means of production owned, and their benefit  participated in by all the people. ���������  The Socialists say : We would  substitate the cooperative for the  competitive system; in order to  have a cooperative system, it is  necessary to have government or  public ownership of the means'of  production ; public ownership is  not the end in view ; the co-operative system is the end, but in order to have the cooperative system  we must have public ownership.  - Shortly, I am a Socialist because  I want Peace and Harmony on  earth, and because I know that  nothing but Socialism will give us  Peace and Harmony. ���������Gaylord  Wilshire in "New Thought."  Restored Youth to Old Women.;  The British Medical Journal tells  this story . "A German doctor discovered a means of restoring lost  youth to women, which is said to  be more potent than  Cagliostro's  famous   pentacle   rejuvenescence,  and advertised that he could  in  two days l-ejuvenate the most decrepit hag.    This brought a crowd  of ancient dames to his house.    At  the first interview, after a careful  auscultation,he invited each patient  to write her surname and Christian  name and age on a piece of paper.  The   ages   to   which   the   women  pleaded guilty varied, but all ruled  high.     The doctor undertook to  to give each patient the'promised  elixir the next day, but some time  was required to adjust tho strength  to   the   individual   powers of resistance. ' On the   appointed   day  the women  called again, but the  doctor   expressed   regret   that he  had    unfortunately    mtalaid    the  pupers containing their ages.    For  this reason he said a new set would  be required.    He added, casually,  that they ought to know that the  oldest of them must allow  herself  to be burned for the good  of the  rest, as tho basis of the remedy  waB human   ash.    The next day  the women brought  back  papers  with their ages on.    It was found  that each had taken many years off  the ago previously admitted.   The  doctor, pretending to have  found  the  first papers,   called them to  witness the success of hifl invention.     Comparing   tho   lists,   he  showed that [lie had kept his word  in. regard to rejuvenation, because  in 48 hours they had all  become  many years younger  damp  Anderson   gathered [the  horsehide and chucked it.

Friel hit a weak and uervouB  roller to Anderson, who stabbed  at it.  The two men on bases were tearing around like tomcats filled with  bird shot.  Friel was throwing the mud  head high as he ploughed.  To the Editor ,of The Globe: Sir,���������I  ask for space in your columns to quote  from a letter received at this office  For obvious reasons I do not give tho  name. The letter reads:���������"I have a  sad case to present to you. Twelve  years ago a mother died, leaving six  small children, the eldest eitjht years  old and the youngest an infant. My  mother took the eldest and kept her  until my mother's death. . Then the  young girl went clerking on small  wages. Last year she contracted a  cold of which she has never been free,  and she has been,unable to work since  last January.'- She is just nineteen  years old. - Kindly tell me how to  proceed to get her Into tho Muskoka  Free Hospital for Consumptives."  The sad part of it is this letter is only  one of many���������alika pathetic and appealing���������that are being received daily  by the writer.  Fifty-five patients are in residence  iu the Muskoka Free Hospital to-day.  Seven hundred and thirty-eight have  been cared for since the hospital was  opened in April, 1002.  In place of fifty we could care for  ono.hundred if the needed money for  maintenance was at the disposal of the  trustees.  Perhaps some of your readers have  seen the following earnest statement  in Dr. Lawrence F. Flick's valuable  book, "Consumption, a Preventable  and Curable Disease " j���������" Could the  consumptives of any given community  bo seen at one time or pass in panorama before the people public consciousness of the magnitude of the affliction might be aroused. A physical  disaster shocks the world and lets loose  the sympathy of millions. A few  thousand deaths are nothing as compared with the deaths from consumption."  Tho appeal of tho trustees of tho National Sanitarium Association is on  behalf of the consumptives of tho Dominion, 5(H) of whom die in Toronto  innually, 3,000 in Ontario, 8,000 iu the  Dominion.  Tliis poor, motherless girl is one of  tho many sufferers of to-day.  Thanking you in anticipation for in-  tertian of letter, believe me, very truly  yours, ,T. S.

One of the last to  get in was an aggressive-looking  woman.. When the conductor  came for her faro she refused it.  " I shan't pay," she said decisively, "because I have no seat.  You had no right to let so many  people on the car."  ���������'You saw it'was jammed. Why  did you gel) in ?" retorted the conductor, tartly. "You will have  to pay your fare or get off."  "I'll pay when you find me a  seat; nod before," said the woman,  her voico and temper rising. The  conductor signaled jjto the motor-  man and the car stopped.

An   inspiration seized the pas  sengers. "Twenty-three!" shouted half e dozen of them in chorus:  The burst of laughter that, followed effected the complete route  of the aggressive woman.

The Rollo was located in August, 1.S07, by Peter Scott, and is  therefore the oldest existing location in Twenty mile camp, all  other locations prior to that having been allowed to lapse. The  Nickel Plate was not located until  a year later. Mr. Scott disposed  of several interests in the property,  but still retains a part ownership.  The other owners are  Paul  John-  v.  son and R. R.  Hedley, both noted  smelter men.  The Rollo, with a very limited  amount of development, is known  to have good ore and a line body  of it, and it is to be hoped that the  capitalists who have taken the  bond are of the right sort and will  push development.

The question is one of great importance, both to the railway companies and to the farmers, and it is  desirable that the Dominion parliament should deal with it on  equitable lines. It is not in the  interests of the public that the  companies should on the one hand  be harassed and hampored in the  running of their trains, nor on the  other hand that they should be  tacitly encouraged to negligence in  the matter of providing every safe-  INDUSTRIAL WORKERS OF THE  WORLD  (GREENWOOD LOCAL NO. 31 1  Meets first and third Wednesdays ofevery  month in Eagles Hall at8 p. in.
