The facts are as under : Henry  Alexander had, until a month ago,  been employed as nurse in the  Sisters hospital here. He was a  good nurse, although it is said he  only received $25 per month for  his services. During the epidemic  of typhoid which started a couple  of months ago, the hospital became  crowded, and Alexander received  the larger porttou of the patients.  He, of course examined their clothing and took charge of their effects���������money, watches and other  valuables. Some of the patients  died, others recovered. Owing to  tho recovery of a largo number of  tho patients, it became necessary  for Alexander to return their valuables, instead of doing this he  skipped out. The total amount of  his stealings cannot be ascertained,  for a number of patients died, but  it must have been nearly a thousand dollars.

Young,  wh. lives on Fifth  street, between  Victoria  and   Riverside avenues,  was awakened by a   burglar attempting to pick the lock ofthe  kitchen    door,    says   tho   Grand  Forks Gazette.    Mrs. Young being  somewhat alarmed for the safety of  some valuables in  tho house, secreted a box containing some land  deeds, two gold  watches, a note  for $400 and   somo money, in the  oven of the cooking stove.    The  burglar succeeded in  opening the  lock,   but the door was bolted on  tho inside and ho gave up attempting to enter this way, and tried the  windows.     Mrs.   Young then lit a  lamp and  the intruder mado a ic-  treat.     When  Mrs.   Young's son  came   home  in the morning from  work ho started tho fire and it was  some time before Mrs.  Young remembered   placing the  valuables  in the oven. The deeds, notes and  money    were    totally  destroyed  aud   the watches ruii ed.  not only all the household hardens,  but the work  of chopping all the  wood as well. .

The court, after hearing Mr. Hercb-  mer,   counsel   for   the  company,  grautcd tho application  with costs.  In all the other ejectmout cases  proceedings were withdrawu.   Tin-  company,  however, does not propose to   let  tho   matter rest here  and will bring fresh Bummonses,  which   will be heard on tho 28th  inst.    It is significant that these  ejectments wero framed on the 3rd  inst.  while negotiations wore sup  posodly   being  made  for a settlement.   It looks as if the company  had at that time made up its mind  to refuse a sottlemeut.  Coal cannot bo had here at any  prico and  wood  is . Bcarce.

C, NOV! 15,   1906.  JRE1GN Or CORRUPTION  -There can  be no objection to a  ,man  who is a Grit in politics provided   he    is   honest.     We are  ..all    entitled ���������    to    our  opinion,  And      if      we      refuse      others  ihe    right   to   think   for themselves we cannot expect liberty for  .ourselves.     It  is the collision of  ,thought that makes the mind active   and   saves   it  from becoming  stagnant by the lack of activity and  jfriction.    We do not war with the  ���������Liberal who is honest but our gun  jis   ever loaded   for   the political  .pirates now  clustered around the  ^wheels  of   the   "machine" in Ottawa,  and  Canada is being plund-  C.ered to a red finish by men who  .should be in jail instead of fingering. ��������� the   affairs   of   the nation.  ���������The people supinely stand and see  .their country robbed  because the  -,bulk   of   them   voted  the present  .party into power and are afraid  jto denounce it for fear that some  skind of social, theological or busi-  ..   peea excommunication will befall.  The  Government   is   suppressing  honest   newspapers   that   cry out  .against graft and superstition aim-  Lijing to crush all opposition to the  ,plot now fully at work to enslave  jthe miud of all Canadians in addition to the attachment   of the  -material wealth   which belongs to  .all tho people.    Iuert and servile  jthe press with few exceptions looks  ,on in impotent Bilence while Canada   rushes  down   hill   with   no  jbrakes set" and  every car full of  grafters going through the baggage.  No use   to   blow   the whistle for  ,most .of the passengers are themselves .drunk  with greed and insensible . to the danger that confronts them.     When   the wreck  ^comes those who are   not killed  jivill crawl  away  cursing the man  .who held the throttle, but would  ^iot throw on the emergency for  /ear that some of his friends had  tnot finished tapping the baggage.  Apropos   of   the deplorable condition of affairs in Ottawa we append  the   following  by   GoLlwin  .Smith in the Toronto Sun:  The   London    election   inquiry  .drags its weary length, and that of  ,whicb   we  all were sure is legally  .certified.-''But' is there not some  thing almost fatuous in the horror  expressed at this  fornvil disclosure  fit the' inevitable .consequence of a  .well-known    cause?      Wcr������  not  ,frand and curtnption sure to attend  ii perpetual conflict of two organized factions for power and place ?  What is the state of things at the  /centre of the conflict?   The most  ^cool-headed    and  competent   observer   tells   us   that   curruption  . feigns at  Ottawa.   The editor of  ihe    Government    orgad    there  j eaves    the    place    in    disgust  fit     the     shameless   dishonesty  jvhicli     prevails.       "The     callousness    and   carelessness,''   he  jh ys,   "of the public men of today,  . ��������� jiidueed by a seeming belief in the  jftdmirntion of the people f.rr smart  iriekcry' and corruption, is  offensive to any man who hopes to find  /it-twmanlike    ability,    common  Jioncflty and straightforward dealing iu  the  chief council-house in  jthe country."     Ho coiitrawts the  present deaducaa of tlie public conscience wjjbh the horror shown at  jthe Itycj^c Hail way scandal.  Since  my  fort of distinctive   principh,  u-.-h  ns might give moral life to a  p-rty organization bus faded away.  [11 what other legislative assembly  ould  bn.  found an  exhibition of  <'0 rtipt. influence so general and  .so shameless as that which we were  called  upon to witness in the last  session   of   our   Canadian parliament?     What  greater misfortune  can befall a community than total  loss  of public respect for its national council and its Government?  In    'Frisco    the   sandbag  mighty and seems to prevail.  is  Tie strawberry seascn'is over,  even in Greenwood.  Even. Japan is becoming active  in the production of copier.  Nicko is s a Russian game that  is not played in Greenwood.  At last a clean trust haBbeen  formed. It is composed of soap  men.  In America many a country editor has never forgotten the name  of Washington.  Those who exp ct to be aldermen next year can now be found in  church every Sunday.  Back in Bruce a printer has become a banker. He must have  learned his new business from a  correspondence school.  It is not likely that Mary would  ever have lost her little lamb if she  had jived in Greenwood and ad\e>  tiBcd for it in this journal.  The people in Toronto are so  crazy for stock that it is verily believed fthat they would invest even  in a mine staked on the mountain  back of Hamilton.  It is now believed by experts  that copper will reach 25 cents. If  it docs and stays there long enough  Greenwood will soon become a second Butte. Get iu early and take  the high seats.  In Canada politicians who are  economical caD easily save a competency in their old age. Look at  Cliffy Sifton ! Out of his small  salary as a cabinet minister he has  already saved something like a  miliion dollars.  The autocrat in state and church  in Europe is making his last stand  for power iu Russia, but Lib finish  is plain to the educated eye.

A woman in Oklahoma fasted and  prayed for 15 days in au attempt to  reform her husband, but the experiment failed, which proves that  the faith cure cannot reach tough  husbauds any more than it can  leprosy.

More than half of the women  and the balance resemble angels  when they are fast asleep.  Nothing is more disgusting to a  sail* and refined man than the appearance of so many of the daily-  papers of America with their poster  head in's. .colore 1 inks and Jurid  falsified news items.

In the stock game there h  ibout 36 zeros to every two num-  >erp.    Bii.lv   Hearst   may   be   a bij  hunk of highly spiced gall, a mora;  deuce in the hole, a political chameleon,    according   to   the silk-tied  boys   who   voted   for Hughes last  week,   but   in   one   particular he  .-bines   out   like the lit end of a  cigar on  a d;irk night.    He is the  only, man in America who has ever  run eight daily papers at the same  time without losing anything but  his reputation.    Ho has been able  to do this through his ability to organize   t>nd   hire   as lieutenants  other men  who had more brains  than  money.     Then by appealing  to the muck in human nature by-  dishing up to the lightly educated  and unthinking masses a literary  hash  of   journalistic   nightmares,  sprinkled with low wit, spiced with  horror,  and  flanked with splashes  of  colored   ink he has caught the  crowd    that   always  laughs,   at  horseplay,  or   drinks   with    any  geyser      who    has     the    price.  If      Hearst     would    lead     the  multitude   out of   the wilderness  re must find another trail.    One  that has less mud  and more of the  ethereal substance   out of which  angels are manufactured.   Shoveling muck spatters a man's clothes  vt ith an odor that debars him from  the parlor.

A Tew years ago  a person was sentenced to a term  in prison 'from this district for  shooting at an officer. He was released the other day, about half of  his term having been served  When asked liow he managed to  "get otiu" so soon' he replied: "I  have i\ beeg pull hatHottawa."

There is considerable dissatisfaction among the people of the  West Fork of the Kettle river over  the manner in which they were  side-tracked in the last redistribution act. The West Fork is a  part of the Similkameen]electoral  district. The territory is tributary  to Greenwood, and will be until  the Midway and Vernon railway  is built. Nearly all the business  of the West Fork is done in Greenwood, its working mines have headquarters in Greenwood, and a stage  runs twice a week from Greenwood  to points in that district. There is  no connection between the West  Fork and other points in the Si-  milkameen district, except a trail  to Penticton from Carmi, which is  seldom used. All the interests of  the AVest Fork arc identical with  those of the Greenwood electoral  district.. The same public questions  affect both the West Fork and  Greenwood districts, so an effort  should be made at. the next sitting  of tho legislature to transfer the  West Fork from the Similkamecn  to the Greenwood   riding.  tne     candidates       for      mayo,  believe    that   collectively   ' the  had     sufficient       influence      t .  elect him.    The candidate finally  "gave up" $75 An payment for th<  support of these three influential  unionists.    Of course ihe wob de  feated.     We   believe it was tin  plumber who recei/ed the money:  however,  the lucky one refused t*>  "divy"  with the othor two   persons of influence.    The refusai resulted in "strained relations'  and  they gave the snap away.    That is  the   trouble   with    many   of   the  unionistd of the coast who take an  active part  in politics.   They are  either hin lings of some politician  or want to be.    The result is that,  -honest unionists keep out of politics,  and devote  their npare time  towards tho betterment of the condition of the  wage-earner, within  the union.

Persons who are not satisfied with the  conditions in the city or district in  which they ;"live" are at liberty to  pull stakes and move to a more  congenial locality. There are a  few knockers in Greenwood whose  early departure would not prove  injurious to the business interest?  of the city, or to the mining interests of tho district. Every one in  this country-who has brains, or,  lacking brains, is willing to work,  can make a fairly good living. If  his ambitions have not been realized, neither the country nor the  people in it are to blame. The  human .failure has usually a bad  kink in some part of bis anatomy  and can be depended upon to  let all the people with whom  he comes in contact know  it. The Greenwood knockers are not all financial failures.  Some of them have been successful  in a small way in stealing a few  dollars from persons who placed  confidence in them. They are no  longer able to rob or steal, because  tho people know them. Therefore  the hammer.  ^inniriimiti)iiiniiintn������iinniiiiinnninrnniniiininniiiininniHiiiii������to.  I  H.

Apparently the disagreement was not caused by any question of vital importance towage  earners.    It was simply a question  of numbers.    The Socialists were  in  the majority something like 90  to 40.   Had they been in the minority it is probably tbe Socialist  delegates would   also   have withdrawn from the convention.

Ernest J, Cartfeir, Prop.  - In the Yukon  The Guggenheinis are reported  to be very - busy in Bonanza creek  and the El Dorado and Cpl.;Budd  and others are following suit and  there is a mania for dredgers there  being already many more in order  than the manufacturers can'supply  and they expect to have at least  forty or fifty rnnning .within the  next three years.' ;It is the generally accepted'theory that when  these get to' work' there will be a  greater output of gold .from the  Klondyke than over- before. The  Guggenheimers have put in a  power plant and are, constructing  a big ditch to bring in tbe'water a  distance of over 40 miles."' They  have had something like a thousand men at work and it is reported  they intend to invest about fifteen  millions in the place. They have  a sawmill working iu connection  with their logging camp chiefly in  turning out material for tiif.ir  flu meg ami timbering ofthe aqednc*.  There is some intention of carry-  this through at one stage by doing  a mile of tunneling, but tbe idea  was eventually abandoned aud the  ditch will be carried through by a  circuitous route instead. At present they are employed in cutting  the thick moss off the track in  order to let the ground thaw out  in the spring. The undertaking  will be a long and difficult one but  will probably be completed next  year.   .  The sawmills will close down  during the winter but the work of  the logging camp will continue,  and it is estimated that 500 men  will be retained in emph yments.  All these new developments notwithstanding the people of Dawsou  do not appear to anticipate any  very material advantage for it is  understood that these large copora-  tions will import on their own account all they requirp, including  food supplies for their emplo}-ces,  as-the quantities required being  very considerable they would be  able to import it more cheaply  than Would the ordinary dealer  and a thing that gives color to this  impression is >the fact -that the  warehouses of the Northern Commercial company have been acquired in tho Guggenheimer interest. It is thus feared that the effect upon the general business of  the place will be tbe reverse of  beneficial.  Many strikes have been reported  during the present season and  various rushes to the Black Hills  and elsewhere have occurred, but  nothing of a remarkable nature except the strike ou Chandler river  which was followed by something  of a stampede.  To all appearances said Mr.  Mortimer to the Victoria Colonist  there is a profitable future before  the place so far as the big com-  panief are concerned but tbe day  of the small digger is done.   ���������  surance, in the politics of the country, , and, iu the trusted management " of banking corpo "ations;  ���������From the Atlantic.to,itho Papific,j  in almost every province of-the;  Dominion, .there has been during  the present year some serious scandal which shocked the moral sense  of the community audbroughtto  dishonor respected names and  great institutions: In the face of  these facts is nota day of hnrnili:.-  tion . and penitence,- not a day of  thanksgiving, more befitting the  Canadian situation ?"~-K:v.  Distant- Appreciation  ' In order to find substantial appreciation in mining it is often necessary to go far from .home. This  remark was born .after .reading tie  following in the Daily-News:  *  A. O. Wheeler who came in from  Butte on Thursday night, accompanied by Bruce White,-sa\s the  Butte people are wonderfully  worked up over, the Krao mine.  The new company that has taken  charge of that property was- floated  within five hours of its launching  upon the market, tire stock to be  issued beiug subscribed for1 five  times over. In fact, Mr: Wheeler  says, those who heard .the report  and saw the ore brought down  from Ainsworth, fell over themj  selves in order to obtain shares.  A limit had to be set to the number of shares which could be sold  teany one person, that limit being  set at 2,000 shares.. Altogether  100,000 shares were issued for the  initial flotation. These. were sold  at SI each. The whole capitalization of the Krao is 850<\0CO  shares of the par ualue of $5 each.  Shares aro now being issued on the  New York market at So ������acb,  100,000 shares being reserved as  treasury stock to provide working  capital.

Rather is it that the'methods of  their  "miningengineers" And fool  experts have given the country a  black eye    betide* impoverishing  the speculators. But the cnutinued  success following legitimate   mining has made them inquisitive, and  once again   they  will ��������� become-involved   in'mining  in the district.

Our esteemed contemporary, the  Toronto Globe, frequently points  out tho abounding prosperity this  country is enjoying under the  ] Laurier government. Our trade  has increased by leaps and bounds,  our manufacturers are growing  rich,' our prairie lands are filling  up with a hardy and industrious  population, our revenue is double  what it used to be before Sir Wilfred Laurier attained control of the  government. And yet our contemporary is not altogether satis-  fled. It has occasional qualms of  conscience. It took a retrospective view on Thanksgiving Day,and  this is the result of its reflections:  "And certain it is that this  Thanksgiving Day finds tho people  of Canada as never before shocked  and humiliated becau >e of the uu-  coyering of moral rotteness in  large areas of Canadian life. This  has been a year of exposuie. The  literature of expbsnro has driven  the reports of prosperity from front  page prominence in the Press.  Scandal follows scandal, and  month by month has brought about  the sudden unmaking of hitherto  respected namps. Manufacturers,  tradesmeu, plumbers, fruit export-  ere, aud food supply men, have all  been involved in some form of extortion or.dcceit or unlawful practice whereby they sought to make  gain at the cost of bouor in business, or even of the health of the  people.

And Mary sat her quickly  down and tears streamed from  her eyes; she never fouud the  lamb because she did not advertise.  And Mary had a brother John who  kept a village store; ho sat him  down and smoked a pipe, and  watched the open door. And as  the people passed along and did  not stop to buy, John still sat and  smoked bis pipe and blinked his  sleepy eyes. And so the sheriff  oloscd him out, but still he ling-  gered near, and Mary camo to  drop with him a sympathetic tear.  How is it, sister, can you tell, why  the other merchants hero, sell all  their goods so readily and thrive  from year to year.

This state of  .affairs is- the natural result ofthe policy  jPursued"' by  Inrge employers of labor in  jthe United States for the past fifty years.  Jiittlc difficulties that could  have been  .settled without strikes  ircre luajrfiified.  ���������Instead of conciliation, ' foreigners were  ^imported  to  take the place of employes  who had grievances.    After a time these  in turn had grievances, and were replaced  By others less enlightened.    In time this  policy r-a;lte(l in tlie intelligent working  men of the  United States being in the  niinoritr, and the large  majority being  ignorant   foreigners.      These   were by  .nature  and early enviroumeat   unfit to  reason  intelligently, so   they used  the  only weapon withwhich they are f.inn'liar  ���������brute fotce��������� to enforce their demands.  (Outrages   were   committed  that would  .never, liaro.- been dreamed of by American  workers*.

That just prior to the breaking of the  cable and killing of fifteen men on Strat-  ton's Independence mine on the26th day  of January, 1904, this affiant, together  with Mr. Travelle, II. G. Moore, A. T,  Holiuaii, S. D. Crump and Nelson Frank-  lin, met in the house or thft-'saidiTravalle.  and during tlie conversation lit* was stated!  that something must' be done to break  ;the strike then being carried on by the.-  Western Federation of Miners. It was  then suggested tiiiit ��������� the shaft house be  blown up ; but, after some conversation,  it was agreed that that would entail too  large a cost. Afterwards it was agreed  that some person should be selected who  would, by use of acid, weaken tlie cable  used on the hoist in said mine, and that  one Prank Gelisse was to be used as  engineer at the proper time; and that he  was to be instructed to lbt the cage  run  parties objected to that, and finally it  was agreed that the iludepundence depot  at Independence statiph should'be blown  up, for the reason that it y/as an. olili-  abandoned depot, and,the.cpst.wou.ld-riot  be much ; aud furthermprc; tllu'J Independence and Altmau'wcre tlie hotbed of  the \V.

In Canada we are'following the same  (coursc. .that   they  have   in   the United  State*..   A large proportion of the immigrants that are settling up the west are  'of the lowest types of Europeans and  Asiatics,   many  'of them    have   to  be  corralled      like      cattle,      of     which  .the      Doukhobors       are    a      sample.  .The     same      course    is    being    pursued: in- Canada as in the United States.  .The present strike at Fernie is the outcome  ,pf' this   po'icy.     t^stea.-^ of the  .friendly relations that should exist between employee and employer, there is  ybetter enmity and contemptible trickery  on both sides, evidenced, at every conference.     Each is trying to trap the other  (on petty issues that are not of importance to either.    Neither District I'rts"-  jdent   Sherman   nor   General  Manager  Lindsay are broad-minded enongtato approach a conference with tlie intention  !of dealing honestly a^d fairly with the  other.  ������  The following statement is published  (to show what will (h/e the result if employers of Canada follow iu the foorsteps  jof those ofthe United Slates:  Static of Colorado,  ,City and County of Dkxvkk���������ss  Claude C. Baldwin, being first duly  .sworn, upon oath deposes aud says:  J hat he makes this affidavit voluntarily,  and that no person has usedlany influence of any nature whatsoever to get him  {to make this affidavit, and- that. all. the  ^things stated in this affidavit are true of  .affiant's  own   knowledge ;   that, during'  boltomiof the mine,  was agreed that this was to be done without killing any af the men. A few days  later it was done, but fifteen mernwwe  killed.  A few days prrorr to the 22nd''of November, 1903, tliere was a meeting at  which it was agreed that Harry Waters  and H. F, Guyton were to pull off a  premature explosion in the Vindicator  mine. That could not well be done during the daytime unless near the hour of  4 o'clock, so it was finally agreed that an  explosion should occur on the sixth level  at some time when the- cage was loweredi  It was agreed that a wire was to be  stretched across the shaft nnd the lowering of the cage should set off the explosion. The powder was placed in position  and a Colt's revolver: hearing the U.. S.,.  stamp was so fixed that the wire would  "pull off " the revolver and the revolver  explode the powder. ��������� Jack Bowman was  approached about'-this mattert.bot from  all I could learn the price slTercd'was too  mill, and Bowman declined to'carry out  the matter. On the night of November  22, 1903, after the explosion had occurred  and killed Beck and McCormack, I had a  conversation at the Vindicator mine with  Frank Woods and Sherman Bell and A.  T. Holnian; and they said that the wire  had been stretched across the shaft and  that Beck and McCormack, not knowing  that the thing was in place, went down  onthe cage-and the explosion followed,  killing them. I saw the revolver which  had been used to cause tlie explosion, and  know it was a United States weapon. Afterwards, another weapon was substituted,  a little bulldog revolver. The parties  who fixed the explosives in place were  to leave the mine through a tunnel level  connecting therewith.  That 0:1 or about the 30th day of May,  A. D. 1904, at the Brown Palace hotel in  Denver, a. meeting was held at which I  was present, and. between S. I). Crump,  A. T. Holman, Mr. Copeland, A. E. Carle-  ton, H. G. Moore and- Nelson Franklin.  In the conversation it was said that something had to be done, as- no success had  been made towards breaking the strike.  It was first proposed to blow up the F. &  C. C. depot in Victor, but some of the  xplosipn, and Messrs. Copeland .AJ|d  Franklin jstated that they would answer  for-Harry Waters and II. F. Guyton doing  thdjob. It was agreed that the- explo*  siou should be '���������' pulled off " just-after the  train left the depot, and that care was to  .be taken so that no one would be killed.  On June 8th, 1904,-1 heardL Franklin' and  Copeland talking.tog,etlii!r audi soy tuat  it was too b*l that thonion were killed  at the Independence station, aud they  said-thatthe men who "pulled it off" must  have Uscn drunk.  Before going down to Duniiville, Nay-  lor, Waters, Guyton and others were-sent  ahead, and were to station themselves in  the hills, and when the armed force came  down they were to begin firing as rapidly  as possible to give the impression that  the miners were firing npon our armed  force A telegram was sent, under agreement, from near Dunnvillc, stating that  the miners were there with u large armed'  force. That was done- to- have an excuse for going down there; When the  armed foice arrived���������aud I was present  with the armed-.' force���������the firing in tbe  hills occurred as prearranged, and as  soon as we began firing these men, who  had been sent down on horseback, immediately returned to Victor so as to be  there before we got back. The John  Carlcy, who was killed at that time, was  deliberately murdered, and I know the  name of the man who fired the shot, and  will at some future time make his identity  known. These things were done through  orders issuing from military headquarters'  On the iath.day of June,, 1904, a proposition was- made- to- me at- the Military  club-in Victor by- Nelson Franklin and  Thomas E.
