" We A re King, with  David B.  G-ulley  and  a clever company of  New   York   players,   will   appear  in  the  Auditorium  Tuesday,   the  12th inst.,  under  the directian of  Mr. 0.   P.   Walker of, Winnipeg.  Tho following  from  the Brandon  Sun   is  but a sample of  tho enthusiastic  endorsement of tho Canadian press :   David B. Gaily, in  his   picturesque-  romance,    "We  Are King," wiis greeted   with capacity business at the opera house  on Monday evening.   Tlie pfar and  his play were strangers to Brandon  theatre-goers,  but  they  came under the direction  of C. V. Walker,  which was a sufficient guarantee to  the   public   that    the 'production  merited   good   patronage..    "We  Are  King" made a decided hit���������  the greatest hit of several seasons.  It's seldom," indeed,  Brandon citizens have had  an'opportunity  of  seeing as finished an artist as David  B.   Gaily.     His   play   is   bright,  smnrfc and intensely interesting���������  jusfc'tho  bill   that the  theatre devotee enjoys and   the general public finds really entertaining. There  .was the same  refreshing  snap to  the    presentation    of   "We   are  King"'  that   characterizes all  the  Walker productions.    There was  everywhere evidence of that attention   to   detail  which  gives to  a  piece, the. swing of a finished production", the artistic air that success demands.  & ��������� ��������� %  a e-s?/__������������s_$3������_<&s&9g_s333ffi������s������a  There has been very little change  in the mining and smelting situation in the past week. The Ii. 0.  smelter continues to turn out  matte and blister, notwithstanding  the repeated rumors of a shut  down in the past, two weeks, 'and  some of the pessimists are no  doubt disappointed that the company has failed them in their hour  of greatest need. A number of  men have been laid off at the  Mother Lode mine, .but the company is buying ore from some of  the. mines at Phoenix for their  smelter here. Ii>ii11 may be staring the. people of Greenwood in the  face, but it i.s not yet visible to the  naked eye.    In Phoenix  the  busi-  Dolpliin Resumes.  After a shut-down of about six'  weeks;   operations   are' again'in <  progress on ��������� tho   Dolphin  group,  situated   about   midway - between  Keremeos and  Olalla.    This pro,-.'  perty has now been under bond,for ,;  almost a' year,   and   during. '.this '  time,   with the   exception   of. tho  last   six   weeks,   work -lias .'been  carried on continuously  to, prove  the ore body, and with satisfactory  results.     Two   substantial    payments    it    is    understood    have  already  been  made on   the' property,   and   considerable, ore  has  been taken out awaiting shipment.  '  It was believed that fhu  financial,  stringency now being felt  in  most  American centers  was responsible  for   the .recent   temporary   shutdown, and to tho same cause may '  now   bo   due   the   re-opeuing   of  work, for the Dolphin  ore  carries  ness men do not appear to be considerable of irs values in gold,  deeply concerned over the situ- and just at present it seems' easier  ation and look for a  full   force  to! to go to  the ore  bodies  for  gold  be employed in the mines of that  camp in the course of a few weeks.  In the meantime, as in Greenwood, no one is starving. Very  little work of any. kind is'being  done by the Dominion Copper  Company in their mines, and the  smelter is still closed. It is said  that the clou*, down of'the Boundary Falls smelter was not altogether due ro the low price of cop  per, hut that since the cave-in at  the Brooklyn mine- and the consequent shortage of ore from that  property, the average of matte  was much lower. If this be true  it is not likely that the smelter  will bn blown in again until the  Brooklyn is in a position' to resume its former tomnigc. With  copper at 1-i cents and steadily  rising there is no reason why cou  ditions should not become better.  Although opinions on the streets  have been frequently expressed  that the G ran by and B. C.  smelters' would be ' compelled to  close down with copper at 11 ^and  J_ cents, they are still running.  Both companies started out ten  years ago to make a profit on 11  cent copper, and evidently their  engineers estimated correctly.  ..

Development work will shortly  be started on the Gobbleson Fraction, about eight miles up Boundary creek. The claim was located  some years ago by Jas. IT.

Three men will be employed.  Dan Gilhoolev and S-indy Mac-  Swat were in Midway Tuesday on  their way to the coast.

The people voted for a  closed town, or thought they wero  doing so, and as a consequence this  mayor and most of the council  we're defeated. The change in the  morality of the town has not been  noticeable enough to cause consternation in the ranks of the 11011-  producers. Greenwood has never  had a serious moral upheaval. The  successive councils of this city  ?ince incorporation have"been after  the cash, and the monthly blackmail of crime has beome a regular  institution of the city. It is an  edifying spectacle to see a band of  women driven, like cattle, every  month to the"city ottices to have  hush   money  extorted from them.  Pakliamext will open for business on November 2Sth, thus giving time to get the. preliminary  work done before the Christmas  holidays. Indications are that the  session will hardly be as long as  usual, but such indications have  often proved deceptive. There  will, at any rate, be comparatively  little private legislation to deal  with, but ou the other hand such  important mtitters as the commercial treaty with France and the  problem of Asiatic immigration  will require attention. Moreover,  as this is likely to be the last session of the present parliament,  there will be a heavy budget for  public works. The system which  spends money for useless wharves  and costly public . buildings in  doubtful constituencies, makes  heavy calls on the treasury, but  the people seem to like it.���������Bruce  Herald.    . -  The mail service of the West is  apparently run for tho purpose of  ascertaining the longest and least-  feasible route between two given  points, and not with any idea of  accommodating the public. The  service been Greenwood and Phoenix has long been a sore spot, in  fact it is all sores, and has been so  often referred to by the press of  the district that it is not necessary  to discuss it here. The latest  piece of bungling by the department is in the service to points on  the West Fork of the Kettle river.  Heretofore the service has been  bad, but now it is the worst. A  stage leaves Greenwood every Saturday for points on the West Fork.  Greenwood is the point at which  the supplies for that section of  country are purchased, even the  large stores of this city wholesale  to the merchants of that district.  There is no direct mail serviee between Greenwood and the West  Fork, nor between the West Fork  and any other point of importance.  Mail is sent from Greenwood to  Midway, and from Midway over  the V., V. & E. railway to Myn-  caster, and from there by stage to  Rock Creek, where it is picked up  by the West Fork stage eight or  nine days after it leaves Greenwood. This issue of The Ledge,  if sent by mail, would reach Beaverdell on the 17th, or ten days after  it is put in the postollicegat Greenwood. If sent by stago it will  reach Beaverdell and Carmi on the  10th, or the day following its delivery to the driver. Tho same  with mail coming from up-river  points to Greenwood. The distributing point for West Fork  mail should be be either Greenwood or Midway, instead of Kock  Creek. The delay is caused by the  mail stago from Myncaster not arriving at Rock Creek in time to  catch the West Fork stage. Mr.  Ross has been notified, and, no  doubt, if it is possible to enlighten  the oflicials of the postollice department,' a change will be made.  A suciGKS'rio.v is made by the  Hamilton Herald that where an  election trial proves that there has  been widespread bribery in a constituency, some way should be  found of making the constituency  bear the cost of tho trial. A promise of amendment of the Dominion  laws governing, elections was made  in the speech from the throne at  tbe opening of last session of  parliament. Other matters engaged the attention of the govcrn-  men, nuJ the measure was not  brought down. During tho coming session, wo assume, tlio amendments will bo introduced, and  since this is a matter in which in  theory at least the two parties are  in accord, it is quite likely that a  pretty decent measure will be  framed.   What is needed in the  way of a law against election corruption, is a law that will stop it,  a law that- will make it unhealthy  for the individual practitioner*  expensive, if possible, for the constituency in question : expensive  and unpopular.. Existing laws in  Canada are obviously - imperfect.  In Great Britain they have gone  about it in . a characteristically  thorough way,-and have produced  laws under which when men and  ridings go wrong they get hurt.' In  only 0110 English constituency -  ,that of Worcester���������has there been  discovered evidence of widespread  corruption in the general -elections  held nearly, two years ago. The  Conservative candidate, who had  been elected in January, 1900,  was unseated a few months later,  and compelled to pay all the costs  of the trial of the petition against  his return, amounting to about  $25,000. Furthermore' it -was  made clear during the trial that  corruption had been practiced on  a large scale, and when, the report  submitted by the trial judge to. the  speaker was laid before the house  it wtis decided to appoint a royal  coinmis'-'iou to investigate Worees-  s C'hc. The report of the com-  inn confirmed that of the judge.  Woi-i-esler escaped disfnineliisc-  mt'iir for seven years, a punishment -which it might have been  obliged (o undergo, but it was compelled to pay the expenses of tho  royal commission. Tho bill has  been presenbed to the city audt'a  special ta:\ has been levied upon  the ratepayers to raise the money  '"or tho payment of the bill. Every  occupant of a house must pay this  special tax of three.'pence-halpeuny  in tire pound of rental value. Thus  a workingman living in a house of  a rental value of ������15 a month has  to pay 82 50.  tor'"  mifi  ifgESMSS'^^^  What- is Home without a Mother and some of our  We  have Platters and Stew Pans.

Great veins of hot water  run through the entire -house, and bathrooms are always  at the service of those in search of material cleanliness.  The dining room is an enemy to- dyspepsia, while the  artistic appointment of tho liquid refreshment room makes  the drinks go down like eating fruit in a Hour garden.  The sample rooms are the largest in the mountains and  - a pleasure to drummers with big trunks.  , JAS. MARSHALL, Prop, -,  Stinginess and economy are not  kin to each other.  Some fellows go fishing and  bring home monkies.  Some women spend mouey on  things as worthless as whisky.  When a man is hungry he appreciates soup more than advice.  Kissing a stylish woman on the  cheek is one way to remove paint.  It's tough when a man has to  give up good money for a tough  steak.  After a woman passes thirty it  doesn't make much difference how  old she is.  Women attend conventions more  to see dresses than to hear addresses.  A capacity for losing his. temper  has mado the failure of many a  man.  When it comes to waltzing the  awkward man gets theie with both  feet.  It is a great compliment to a  barber to have a customer go to  sleep in his chair.  Man is a slave to the almighty  dollar and woman to the- bargain  counter.  Every flock has black sheep and  some Hocks are composed entirely  of that kind.  With the necessities of life going  up every day it requires considerable courage to live.  It's simply a waste of time to  argue politics as tho other fellow  knows you are in tho wrong.  A man may be a hopeleBB idiot  but if.he admires a woman you can  not convince her  that  lie's crazy.  When a young man makes inquiries whether the lady he is  keepiug company with knows how  to cook, it's a sure sign that his intentions aro serious.  According to tlie Siamese belief  it takes the soul seven days to  reach heaven after death. If some  souls go to heaven in seven years  they will be doing exceedingly  well.  The mother who gives her baby  a spoonful of whiskey for its  stomach ache should not bo astonished if when it grows up it takes  a whole glassful for its stomach's  sake.  A young lady says shut she will  nover, never flirt again, and upon  being asked why, said sho winked  at an awful nice drug clerk tho  other day and he put whiskey in  her soda wator.
