After an interview with W. A. Williams, superintendent of the Granby smelter, the Vancouver  Province states that it is understood that the  Greenwood smelter is running on a reduced scale  and will probably close down in a.few days.   This  information is incorrect.   The smelter of the bTcT  Copper Co. is operating full blast and has 12,500  |  tons of coke on the way from the east, sufficient  "  to keep the plant in full.operation until July 20.  If the C.P.R. oan deliver the coke fast enough I  there is no danger ofthe B. C. Copper Co. shutting  down their mines and smelter for many moons.

This  would do away with the necessity  of peddling hot ozone about reciprocity. The reciprocity pact  might benefit the people as a whole,  but ifc would have a tendency to al-  lienate Canada from England and  wed her to the States. Nearly  everyone without a national or sol-  fish spirit is in favor of closer trade  relations with Undo Sam, but tho  real patriots in Canada do not want  to take any chances in losing their  national identity by freer trade relation with those who dwell under  the starry flag.

Axn now,   over   in   Deadwood,  over   m  South Dakota, they aro going tol English people  erect a monument to tho memory | -  of Calamity Jane, the greatest two-  nicked Indian fighter that ever  straddled a mule. Her name was  Martha Cannary, and she was  born in Missouri in 1S52, nnd died  in Deadwood in 1903. When a  littlegii-1 she came to a gold camp in  to explain, although we think that  the heavy drinking of years gone  by is still having its effect upon the  In Vancouver the other day a  policeman arrested Judge W. W.  B. Mclnnis because he was blocking the traffic, and would not move  on when the cop ordered him to do  so. When the auto patrol arrived  to take the prisoner to the police  Montana, and took to the wild free station,   the driver recognized the  life of the old west like a chappie  to white pants. She is reported to  have beeu married three times, but  nothing is known of auy of her  husbands, except one, and his name  was Burk. Calamity was a scout,  Indian fighter aud mule driver, and  her like we will never see again,  for the old west has been buried under the march of civilation. The  few remaining red skins have become docile as a pet lamb, and the  bad white men have been chased  from the plains, into the dark spots  of large cities. Calamity helped  to lynch many a horse thief in her  day.  "The name under which she  became famous appears to have  been spontaneously bestowed in  recognition of the fact that she  usually   turned  up to aid  and  succor on the occasion of some  calamity or misfortune.    It was  thus she  made her appearance  at the head of a band of scouts  in time to rescue Captain Egan  of  the United States   Cavalry,  from the clutches of Crazy Horse  a  hostile Sioux.    A member of  the Indian band was just about  to murder the captain when Calamity Jane shot him through the  heart.     While   Indian fighting  Avas the chief business of the frontier,  Calamity Jane enjoyed life  to the full.    She was often in the  employ of the   Government as  scout aud despatch rider, and on  one occasion was the driver of a  mulo team for General Crooks in  the Black Hills."  "Calamit}' Jane was, withal, of  a gentle,   kindly  natnre,   more  than ready to do a good turn and  probably was not at all lacKi'ng  in romantic sentiment. Whether  this vein in her nature found an  outlet in one or all of her marriages is not known, but Western  legend credits  her with a deep  affection for "Wild Bill*' Hickok  the most famous of gun fighters.  When Bill   was murdered,   she  tracked his slayer and officiated  at bis funeral, and she is buried  beside his grave in Deadwood."  Many an old trail-blazer in the  west will be glad to know that the  Black Hills i.s putting a white marble shaft over the quiet remains of  fearless Calamity Jane.  Judge, and he was' allowed to go,  perhaps ou suspended sentence.  We fail to seo why a Judge should  thus be favored when he breaks  the laws of a city. If high and important personages can break the  law with impunit}', why not permit common mortals to enjoy the  same privilege?  Just 20 years ago in the morning Big Jerry rowed us into Nelson,  and   that evening we had  dinner  with a   Presbyterian parson.    He  was young in the business of canvassing for wild souls, and informed us that he was shocked at the  moral condition of that young frontier city.    We did not wonder at a  young man just out from his eastern prayers being shocked at Nelson in the early days, for the red  lights    were   thick   along   Baker  street, and the gamblers riffled the  devils tickets in tne bar of almost  every   cocktail   factory   in   town,  while occasionally some   business  man  would ride  a cayuse into a  saloon   and   lasso   the bartender.  Oh! those wild free days are gone  for   ever more, and   perhaps   tho  parson is in heaven or Toronto by  I this  time.    Such   is   life   in   the  beautiful but cokeless west.  Saloons sell  anything else.  more  water than  Tiik Ledge has been over five  years in Greenwood, and a few citizens nave not yet had the courage  to give the Editor an ad.  White women   should carry   a  gun when tliey go to South America,  especially  in   tho Argentine  Republic.    We have   before   us a  cutting of tho Buenos Standard, relating an occurance which appears  to be by no means unusual.    A girl  of about 20 was waiting for a tram.  Some soldiers passing in a carriage  shouted obscene observations to her,  and she took no notice.    Then one  of the soldiers jumped out and carried her off to the carriage where  his companion gagged her.   They  rook her to one of the public parks  where   they   were joined  by two  mounted  policeman, who assisted  them in a criminal assault. The offenders  were arrested,  but is not  thought  that any  serious punishment will bo meted out to them.  In fact, drunkenness can always be  pleaded in Argentina as an extenuating    circumstance,    and    any  wrongdoiug on the part of ofliicals  is always hushed up.    We understand that things are almost as bad  in Brazil.  Tai-t is a wise man, and thinks  In Montreal postmen are being  replaced with compressed air. Air  is valuable, especially when it is  heated, and put into the mouth of  a boom town real estate dealer.  Within the past ten years the  consumption of alcoholic beverages  has materially declined in England,  and yet crime, lunacy, accidents  and povorty has increased.   Here  is a problem for the water drinkers to como back homo and nestle again  that the present is a critical time in  the question of reciprocity, Unless  it is decided favorably such an opportunity will probably never again  come to the United States.   Taft  says that the forces which are at  work  in  England and Canada to  separate them by a Chinese  wall  from the United   States,  and   to  make an Imperial commercial band  reaching from England around the  world to England again by a system of preferential tariffs, will derive such an impetus from the rejection of this treaty as to shut out  all hope of their over being a chance  to pass one again.

So it is with John Hays Hammond   of   New   York,   London,  Glouchester,    Mass.,   aud    anywhere else on the earth's surface  or under its superficies that valuable mines arc to be found.    He  has been dilligent in his business;  therefore   he shall stand   before  kings, or, at any rate before one  king,    The place and the occasion  of  the standing will be the  corouation of King George V. of  Great Britain and Ireland., etc.,  iu Westminister Abbey next June.  Mr.   Hammond will be  there in  virtue    of   his   appointment   by  President Taft as special ambassador of the United States.  John Hays Hammond has stood  before kings on prior occasions,  aud he has not been abashed. Indeed, why should he be?   To let  off a little flamboyant patriotism  he  is  au American   citizen   and  therefore  as good as any king.  And he is king, or at least kingpin, in his own professiou, which  requires at least as much brains  as  being king of Montenegro or  Dahomey or Sarawa or any other  out of way principality-    When a  man is the best known, most experienced,.best educated, highest,  salaried mining engineer in  the  world he does not need to bow his  head before any mere hereditary  king   or   emperor.    Honors   aud  money and position and other desirable things have come to him  in too abundant measure for that.  Let's dig   up a little   ancient  history   about   Hammond-   (It's  got to be done, for every mention  of  him  in  connection  with  the  special   ambassadorship has told  of his involvement in the Jameson raid, and we might as well  follow the lead.    It was really an  important   incident   in   a career  crowded with important things)  He happened to be in Johannesburg  in 1S95 when Dr   Leander  S.   Jameson   (now   Sir  Leander  Starr Jameson by Grace of King  George)   conceived   the idea   oi  overturning   the   government of  South Africa  Republic with 600  men, entering  with lightness of  heart upon a task which required  most of Great Britain's army and  some of its navy a few years later.  Jameson believed that Hammond  then in charge of��������� Cecil  Rhodes'  gold mines in South Africa, was in  sympathy with his movement, as  the American engineer was one  of the four  leaders  for   reform  governineut   in    the   Transvall,  Contemporary records show that  Haninfbnd wired  to Jameson  as  follows, "Expert's report decidedly adverse; I absolutely condemn  further development at present,"  and that he lined, up his men and  made  them   swear allegiance to  the Boer government.    Notwithstanding     this    old     President  Kruger saw in Hammond, as he  did in every reformer, an enemy  to his rule over the Boer country,  and he put Hammond in jail and  had him condemned to death by  the   rope.    The    sentence    was  commuted to fifteen years inpris-  onment and later to the payment  of a fine of $125,000.    It was a  narrow squeak for Hammond.  That is  one  of the pages of  written    history   on   which   the  name  of John Hays   Hammond  figures   big.    There    are   other  pages, many of them, ou which  his name is written.    He has zigzagged his interesting ways over  the world, dotting the globe with  places from which precious metals  have   been   dug.    Probably  no  other man in the history of the  world has so an extensive a history as an explorer for purely utih-  itarian purposes.   He is like the  fairy in the old tale in whose foot  prints flowers sprang up, only his  footprints   are not marked with  flowers,   but by quartz  crushers  and by stamping mills and smelters and other unpoetical but extremely useful things.  In finding gold for others Ham.  self. He is the famous "man  with the $1,000,000 salary," which  figure made the world gasp several years ago. He is said to  have received and to be receiving  that amount yearly from the  Guggenheim Exploration company for finding new mines or  passing judgement upon those  fouud by others. But Hammond  has never admitted the tacts  about the. $1,000,000 a year salary, and the Guggenheim payrolls are not open to inspection by  the public' Tt is quiet likely that  Hammond works for the Guggeu-  heiins lor no salary at all, but on  a percentage basis which yields  sufficient income for him to indulge in his few hobbies, such as  aspiring to such as high offices as  yice-president of the United StalcB  neighboring with President Taft  on the north shore of Massachus-  cttes, running the National  League of Republican Clubs, of  which he is president, helping to  ruu the National Civic federation,  lecturing before universities on  abstruse mining problems, etc  Here comes the biographical details. Mr. Hammond is ������6 years  old, a native of San Francisco, a  graduate of the Sheffield Scientific  school of Yale university and of  the Royal School ol Mines at  Freiburg Saxony. He was married thirty years ago to Miss Natalie Harris of Mississippi. She  has been with him in various  parts of the world, notably in  South Africa wheu Kruger and  bis advisers dangled a rope over  ber husband's head. Mrs. Hammond resembles her husband  mentally.

W.������������.������-I������IVI   nBliLn>ii    wnniimwHio  The Famous Poet of French-Canadian Life.  -It was eight years ago that.Dr. Druinmond's delightful .book of verso "The  Habitant and Other French-Canadian Poems" made its debut. Their auaint*  ness, pathos, humor and rcalncss, blended with tho raro, sympathetic touch that  makes smiles chase away tears and tears follow smiles, won instant responso in  the hearts of Canadians and of all lovers of good literaturo throughout tho world.  Tho simple-minded, pure-hcartcd French-Canadian characters told their stories  in a new dialect���������handled with such loving, sympathetic interpretation that no  slightest cloud of exaggeration or burlesque marred the spell of the charm.  They were originally scribbled on a block of paper held on the author's knee,  often by a camp-fire; later, begged, borrowed or purloined by friends, many of  them drifted into print and became popular without tho author's name- and with  no trace of their parentage. It was the poet's wife who carefully collected all  theso earlier poems and mado copies of the later ones, and so made possible ono  of the best selling books of poetry, in recent years.  *' Dr. Drummond was bom in County Lcitrim, Ireland, in 1854, and when a  boy of nine was brought with his three brothers to Canada by his father who!  Settled in Montreal. Ho loved out-door life, camping, fishing, boating���������anything  ���������with open air and companionship. ; Ho was happy at Bord a Plouffo, meeting tho  river drivers and shanty men on their way down to Quebec,' absorbing their stories  ond_ quaint talk with all the intensity of an impressionable boy, unconsciously  storing them away in' silent preparation until tho day when ho was to add a now  character to'tho literature of Canada and a now namo to her roll of real poets.  While in the High School at Montreal and later at Bishop's Collogo at Len-  noxvillo in his medical tiourso from which ho 'graduated in lS8-l,'ho wrote somo verso;  but It was his splondid physique-''and great strength that distinguished him���������his.  wonderful records in hammer-throwing and shot-putting winning moro attention than his throwing of words or putting of phrases.  When'ho came to Montreal to practice, be became identified with tho fishing  clubs, and on tho rivers and in tramping through tho woods caino again iiitq  closo companionship with tho guides, the hiilf-breetls and the habitants whose con-;  fidenco ho won and whosq catecjn wis given tri'liim ns naturally as echo I'osppnds  to sound. In recognition of his splendid contributions to literature, Dr. iJruni-  inond wns elected a Fellow of tho Hoyal Society of Literature, England, and of  tho Itoynl Society of Canada, n D.C.L, of Bishop's College, ami honored with nn  lAt.D. from Toronto University,   Ilis latest boolc is '"i'ho Voyngetir."  QiitoitUaccurdiuKtu Act of llio I'DilUwculi ef Canada, lu tljo year 1|KK>, !>/ IV. V. Mack, at tlie fvl>artmynt of AfilculluMi  The Crow's Nest Pass is not  Ihe only pls.ee where there is a  coal strike. .There is one in Great  Britain, judging from the following account by a writer in a London paper.    He says:  "I have just returned from the  Khondda Valley, where their are  close upon 12,000 men out of employment. Add to this the number of wives and children, and we  find that, there are nearly 30,000  human beings on the verge of  starvation, for the strike pay ot  each man amounts to 10s. a week  only. The masters say that the  strike and lock-out are the fault  of the men, and the men state  that they are the fault of the  masters.  A new seam of coal in one of  the pits was commenced, and the  men who were working in it,  numbering about eighty, could  not" agree with the management  as to price. Similar seams in the  Rhondda were paying 2s. 6d. a  ton. The particular pit in question  offered the men 2s. l^d. It was  refused,, and the men came out on  strike, The owners thereupon  locked out another 800 men working in the same pit. When they  went to find work in other mines,  they found they, were blocked.  The boycott of these men led to  further strikes and lockouts.  I am told by au official of the  Miners' Federation that the average weekly wage of those who  work down a pit is not more than  25s. Of course, there may be a  few experienced miners who get  as much as 35s, or ������,2. But even  so, what is that considering the  life they lead? It may be asked  why coal is so dear, seeing that  the colliers get such small wages.  The answer is that the railway  companies, the coal merchants  and the shareholders in the mines  have to be satisfied. Mines in the  Rhondda Valley are now paying  a dividend of 25 per cent. The  railway charges for carrying a ton  of coal from Wales to London is  6s. Id. What the coal merchants  profit is, goodness knows. B'iefly  then, that is the "position. It is  4^d. strike. The masters want  to pay 2s. l^d. a ton to the collier for getting the coal, and the  greedy collier wants 2s. fid.  I spent a whole day iu the  sheets of Tonypar.dy, and the impression I got was that before  long there will be serious trouble  ���������much more serious trouble,  in fact, than there was there  a few months ago. The men  hung around the street-corners  with set sullen'faces. They converse in little groups until they  are moved on by the police. The  women gather on their door steps  and iu their courtyards. I have  listened to their conversation  many times. They are always  discussing certain mines' managers, aud it will be "God help"  these gentleman if ever the  women get a hold of them. Their  pantry doors are locked, and they  swear that it is these managers  who have the keys.  Even the children enter- into  the spirit of; the light. Their  mothers have taught them the  lesson, and it has sunk deep down  into their little souls. Coming  down the main street about lunch  time, I met fiye of these little urchins. They were marching in  the centre of the road,   in their  their tin mugs in the air, ancl  shouted, "Are we downhearted?"  and promptly they gave themselves back the answer, "No!"  These children were rebels���������every  one of them. They may be short  of food today, but they are learning a lesson, and when they become men and women the event  of 1911 will not be forgotteD.  Before leaving the Rhondda, I  had a talk with an official of the  Miners' Federation, and asked his  opinion to the altimale end of the  strike and lock-out. He was de-  cidely pessimistic. "No good  whatever can come of the local  strike," be said. "A national  strike would put things right in  twenty-four hours." "Do you  think their will be any repetition  of the disturbances?" ' I asked.  Aud the following was the answer I got. "I don't know. Iu the  present frame of mind of the people anything might happen."  Even to the blowing up of tbe  mines?" I asked. He nodded his  head and walked away. There  was much in that nod, though.  I had previously iu the day heard  from a miner friend that certain  desperate characters had enough  dynamite, not only to blow up the  mines, but the whole of the  Rhondda Valley."

During a portion of the South  African war, Lord Kitchener had  as cin orderly a young scion of a  uoble house who had joined the  Imperial yeomanry as a trooper.  He could not quite understand  that he was not on terms of perfect equality with the members of  the staff, and having- been summoned one morning to carry some  dispatches for the commander-in-  chief, he entered the room with  a jaunty air. "Did you want me,  Kitchener?" he asked calmly,  while the rest of the staff g-asped  for fear of what would happen  next. Kitchener, however, merely  looked at him with a quite smile.  "Oh, don't call me Kitchener,"  he remarked gently, , "it's so  beastily formal. Call ine Herbert!

Winter, Mgr,  KIND WORDS  The Spokane Review has the  following to say of our popular  townsman, E. G. Warren:  "Mr. Warren is a very .young  man to have so responsible a position as that of general manager of  so important a company.

After his removal to  the Boundary country he organized  and captained the Phoenix team,  which gave the Nelson and Rossland clubs a hard contest for tho  championship at several succeeding  carnivals at Rossland.
