In future the Newmarket hotel  at New Denver will be heated by  steam. Since Andy Jacobson obtained this old and noted hotel he  has made it worthy to be called the  new Newmarket.  B. H. Bull & Sons will establish  a large farm at Cobble Hill for the  raising of Jersey cattle. At their  farms in Ontario this firm has the  largest herd of pedigreed cattle in  the British Empire.  On the construction of the C. N.  railway between Cowichan and  Port Alberni nearly 2,000 men are  working. The contractors have  bought 300,000 feet of lumber to  put up construction camps.  The   Canadian Northern   Railway says the Advertiser has put  up about   $75,000 for  yard   and  station sites in Armstrong, and the  main  line   will  go   through that  town, with a branch to Enderby.  Next summer A. Ross will build  a boat on Decker lake that will  carry four tons of freight, and run  ten miles an  hour with gasoline  power.

P. between  Tete Jaune Cache and Fraser Lake,  Hon. Martin Burrell, Minister  of Agriculture, has under consideration a plan by which tho important industry of poultry raising  will be strengthened and developed  and has recently appointed an  officer to take charge of this work  in Prince Edward Island.  Change is the only permanent  thing in tho world.  By dipping a pail into the Skeena  river, J. L. Christie recently  caught a four pound rainbow trout.  Cattle are running at large in  Armstrong, thereby decreasing the  value of mechanical lawn mowers.  It costs six cents a pound to  pack supplies from Tulameen to  Leadville, a distance of twenty-one  miles.'  Trout fishing ends in the interior  of B. C. upon October 15, the  season being governed by the Dominion act.  Joe Tallmire is moving to South  Fort George from Discovery. For  many years he has run an hotel at  the latter place.  Live cats are worth $5 each in  Tete Jaune Cache country. Railway contractors need them for the  killing of bush rats.  Robert McClain died in Hazelton from pneumonia. He drove a  freight, team on the Bulkley road  during the summer.  In 1909 there were 787,000  working in the mines, of Germany.  Of that number 1.73 in every  thousand were killed.  This winter two flouring mills  will bo built in the Peace River  country, one at tho Crossing, and  the other at Grand Prairie.  During the winter Duncan Ross  will make several trips from Victoria to see how his railway contract at Bulkley Summit is progressing.  Early next year l',000 laborers  from the Island of Malta will arrive  ih B. O. Thoy will be employed  principally in the sawmills of the  province.  Frank Nichols and Richard Mil-  lett have brought to Rossland for  their dairy, cloven Jersey cattle.  The herd was bought at Creston,  and cost $1,000.  For many moons Sater & Johns  have had a bear chained  up in a  zoological   garden    back of   their  hotel.    Last Saturday he made a  funeral out of a black rabbit, and  a   blue-blooded   chicken   or   two.  For this serious offense he has been  condemned to die, and  when his  hide becomes a shade more glossy  Billy Johns will take out his gun  and make Bruin look smaller than  thirty cents.    It is almost a safb  bet that the Norden will have bear  steaks for Christmas.   The bear in  question has never been much of a  fish or meat eater, but his appetite  for sweet  clover  and  come-back  pies has been immense.    He oats  candy like a college girl, and likes  ice-cream   by   the   bucket.     His  death  will   give   the  chickens   a  chance to roost in the crow's nest,  without losing their individuality.  THE HEINZE LAND  The Forestry branch of the Land  Department at Victoria, has sent  six parties of Foresters to examine  and report upon the land and timber of the Heinze blocks. H. K.  Robinson is in charge of the work,  with headquarters in Greenwood.  Each party consists of three men,  and the work will be carried on for  several weeks, the government do-  siring to close the deal with Heinze  during the coming winter. The  local men engaged on the work are  Sid Oliver, John Meyer, Ed McCutcheon, and Elmer Collier.  AUTO ON FIRE  On Sunday evening while driving his auto from Midway to Greenwood, Dr. MacLean had a thrilling  experience. When a short distance  from Midway a fire broke out in  the engine box. The Dr. saw a  chance to have a $1,300 car cremated, so he became extremely  active, and with tho assistance of  E. R. Redpath, who was riding  with him, they finally smothered  tho fire with a fur robe, and clay  that they scooped from the side of  the road with their hands. After  tho fire was out they walked eight  miles to Greenwood, procured another car, and towed tho disabled  machine to its garage in tho city.

It is not stated whether Christ will  come back in an auto, or an airship,  but it is most likely to be the latter.  The price of blackthorns will  advance when Ireland gets Home  Rule.  The high cost of living has not  increased the price of postage  stamps.    They aro still stationery.

It is just as well to keep your  powder out of the rain, for the  world may bo on the ovo of a  general war.  The Great Northern railway has  not yet built its line into Greenwood from Midway, as should  have been done years ago; nor has  any arrangements been made to  connect that road with the C.P.R.  A short spur at Midway would  connect the two systems and be of  great advantage to the public, but  the government does not seem to  have the power to force the completion of such a convenient arrangement.  Citptain Muiin, formerly au officer in the Scottish Fusiliers who  came to Western Ciiiiiirla in tho  early days and sefclh'il in Brandon,  was in Winnipeg yostordny. He  left for the Wheat City last night.  Captain Munn, who is well known  in connection with ventures in tne  northlaml, has just returned from  a prospecting trip to North Baffin's  Land. Narrowly escaping death  by drowning, and afterwards by  starvation. Captain Munn and his  captain and crow of 2.*], wero compelled tn abandon their quest for  alluvial gold, and return to civilization. Tho story told in simple  language by Captain Munn is full  of interest.  Chartering a ship from tlio Newfoundland    fishing   lle.ot,   Captain  Munn had her refitted for the needs  of the voyage, and engaged Captain  Bartlott,   a man  of extensive  experience in the Arctic, to command  her.    With a company of prospectors, and a crew, numbering 23 in  all, a start was made from Sydney,  N.   S., June 20.    Confidential  information  of the whereabouts   of  large quantities   of alluvial   gold  was the reason for organizing the  expedition.    On July 10 the north  end of Baffin's Land was  reached,  and from the head of Pond's Inlet  tho   adventurers  took    a  narrow  that gold has been found in similar  latitudes all over the. globe.  Captain Munn was a little averse  to expressing an opinion as to the  practicability of the Hudson Bay  route for grain shipment. He himself favors a scheme for a railway  from west to east across Labrador,  with a port on the North Atlantic.  "Tho whole trouble about tho  Hudson Bay route," said Captain  Munn," is tho navigation of tho  Hudson Straits.' That difficulty  would be avoided if grain wero  shipped across tho bay to Labrador,  and then by rail to tho Atlantic  seaboard. Tho people of tho west  however, should lie careful in their  judgement. Tho reports which  will come down this year of the, ico  in the'straits will certainly bo unfavorable to tho Hudson Bay route,  but this has been tho worst season  for ice'iu that'Jpart of tho Arctic for  many years."���������Winnipeg Freo  Press.  a result the natural resources are  neglected, if not actually wasted.  However, time will teach u's to  use and conserve ' these priceless  gifts in natural resources."  Soul in Beauty  Farmers Wanted  Wiib.v it becomes possible for  airships to reach the "Milky  Way,;' tho price of butter should  take a tumble.  At last prosperity and civilization have reached Hazelton. Recently in fifteen days four people  were operated on iu that town for  appendicitis.  Fon a time wo will not be shocked by reading about automobile  accidents, but the fool who goes  through a hole in tho ice is just  about due to arrive.  Ix Rossland the Miner's Union  has passed a resolution protesting  against the storekeepers raising the  prices of goods. Quite a good idea,  but it will not bo successful unless  worked all along the lino.  We   never   thought   that   Bob  Edwards of the Calgary Eye-Opener  would crawfish tho  way  he did in  the'Davis criminal lible case.    A  decent apology would not have been  so bad but the one ho signed   was  fierce.    Better have gone to  jail  than to fall complete]}- at the feet of  any man.    Editors should   never  write or publish anything that they  are not prepared to back up, oven  with their life and  liberty.    E. P.  Davis  may  be  a brilliant lawyer,  and a man who never took a drink  iu  his life,   but he does not win  much  by   taking   notice   of   Bob  Edwards' mud battery.    The verdict he obtained against Bob   is  liable to do him more harm than  good.   Boomerang.  "lead"  of water through  the ice  Thinking Themes  In New York this month a girl  smoked 000 cigarettes ' in twenty-  four hours. She wound up in a  hospital, talking to herself, and  singing incoherently snatches of  that famous song, "Have you the  Makings."  As far as we can learn no Greenwood subdivisions have as yet been  placed upon the market, in Calgary  and points further east. It seems  strange that the real estate fakirs  have overlooked Greenwood, a city  that ships more gold every month  than any other town in Canada.  When the Duke of Connaugt  was in Kamloops he reviewed the  old soldiers who lined up to bid  him welcome. He asked one old  veteran whero bo had served last.  "In Kamloops" was the reply.  The old soldier had just got out of  jail in that town, and tho Duke  laughed an hour over tho incident.  Paul Scott Mowror said tome the  other day somewhat as follows:  The religious situation of the  generation to which the young  men of today belong is peculiar and  new. We aro growing up in an  atmosphere, for probably the first  time in the world, where there is  no religious pressure. Wo are entirely freo.  Formerly everybody was ex-  peted to havo some creed, even if  only that of infidel or agnostic.  Now it makes no difference.  The effect of this upon some has  been to make them a little heady.  They could not stand so much  ozone.  But human nature rights itself  after every unbalance, and we are  coming back to tho religious verities, but with a new appreciation.  The new generation will be more  honestly religious than the last, for  it will seize religious feeling because it is needed, not because it is  prescribed.  There can be no going backward  in ethical movement. We aro going into a truer, because freer, religiousness.���������Frank Crane.  In Canada and the United States  a  certain   religious sect   believes  their toilets.��������� Nodior.  Women, cats and birds aro the  creatures that wasto most time on  for a distance of twenty-five miles  in the direction of their objective.  On July 10 a tremendous gale  sprang up with thick snow, and  the ice closed in on either side of  the ship, crushing her amidsliip, at  her weakest point just abaft tho  engines. In thirty-five minutes  the ship plunged below the ice in  160 fathoms of water.  The  ship's   company   had   just  time to throw the, boats on the ice,  with    biankets,   tents,  and   three  weeks   piovisions.      Hardly   had  they done this, and seen their vessel sink, than the seaward ice blowout, leaving them stranded twenty-  live miles from shore on a field of  ice.    They had no means of telling  if the ico on which they wore, was  drifting from land or not, there being   a  thick  blizzard then raging.  Launching  tho boats from the  ice  they passed round the edge of the  field    and    reached     land.    Thoy  made a camp at the entrance to  Pond's Inlet, 1,000 miles from the  nearest shipping point in Labrador.  Fortunately some members  of the  party    discovered   a   government  cache thirty-five miles up the Inlet,  left there by  Capoain Bernier in  1910.    Here  they  found sufficient  provisions for all  the party for a  year,   which  they  hauled to their  camp by dog sleigh.  After a  few  days  rest Captain  Munn and his companions started  south in the ship's  boats, making  for tho coast of  Labrador.    While  waiting for the ice in the  Inlet  to  go out, a sealing ship, tho Neptune,  arrived.     This    boat    had    been  chartered by a New York syndicate to go in  quest of the same  mineral deposits as prompted Captain Munn's expedition.    Neither  party succeeded   in  reaching   the  point aimed  at and tho Neptune  was compelled   to   return.     The  New   York   expedition,  however,  was awarded with fur^and ivory to  the value   of   $13,000.     Captain  Munn lost   82,500 worth   of   fur  when his ship  foundered.    Ho intends to fit out another expedition  next summer,   and will  winter in  Baffin's    Land,    prosecuting  his  search for gold tho following spring.  He says that he  may organize a  trading company, establishing two  or three trading posts in the neighborhood of Pond's Inlet, and  continue tho quest for gold   in  the  meantime.    Captain   Munn    went  up tho Klondike in the rush of '99,  and  has travelled down  tho Mackenzie river, to tho barren lands.  He believes that there is vast mineral wealth in Baffin's Land, supporting this contention by tho fact  J. E.',Brown of Edmonton says:  "Weiwant tarmors who are producers, not squatters. This means  more consumers, and as a result  all lines of trade would benefit  thereby.; Too many mon come  here as [farmers and storekeepers  who aro merely squatters, waiting  for the unavoidable natural increment of values to make them rich.  They are a menace rather than a  benefit to the country, no matter  how much capital they may bring  with them, for the reason that  they do not produce anything. We  need thousands of earnest and ambitious men and women, who know  how to grow grains and grasses  and roots, who understand how to  milk a cow, sot a hen, and feed  pigs and calves and sheep. Wo  have everything else."  Emphasizing another point, Mr.  Brown said Iho native grasses that  have gone to waste in Edmonton  district this season would have  fattened a million cattle and made  fortunes for the owners, adding :  "This happens every year and  probably will continue for years to  come. If this resource alone were  utilized it would mean more people  on tho land, and in turn there  would he more business for all  lines of endeavor, saying nothing  at all about adding to the wealth  of the province and the nation.  "We are buying millions of  dollars' worth of butter, eggs aud  other dairy and poultry products  sn the east, shipping thorn from  2,000 to 3,000 miles and selling  them to people who could aud  should grow them here, and send  the surplus to the eastern markets  at a profit. We aro buying crackers and biscuits, canned vegetables  and preserves and candies made  made in the east and freighting  them 2,000 or more miles, to sell  to people who raise the best wheat  and vegetables and small fruits on  earth.  "We;should make the crackers  and biscuits where the wheat  grows, instead of paying freight  both ways ou our own products.  We need factories of largo aud  small capacity and men who understand how to manufacture  quality products. The markets  aro established, the people have  money and undoubtedly preference  would be given to home manufactured goods, other things being  equal. It is the same in many  other lines of industry aud trade.  "In   the  development   of   the  country wo produce wealth and at  tho samo time tho land and resources increase in value, so that  in a now country, such as central  Alberta is, wo receive natural compensation for our labor, in  addition to tho gift of natural increment.   But in tho first stages,  as  wo are now experiencing in Edmonton and tho tributary district, the  pooplo   become   land   crazy   and  ('very ono has a mania to acquire  all he can possibly handle, and as  Wo read many criticisms by  western women upon tho women  of Now. York and tho eastern  states. Ono alleged beauty from  California declares that New York  women lack soul. The only reason bIio gives for her opinion is  that thoy aro not laughing all the  while.  Sho says that thoy are beautiful  as buildings are, but thoir beauty  is artificial, that thoy have no  hearts, and arc without the lovo of  nature, which every real beauty  must havo as tho foundation of  worth.  This western girl is right in tho  last statement and wrong in tho  first ono. Thero is no beauty born  without tho love of nature strong  in her. Thoro is no normal woman  who does not appreciate nature  and all of its "gifts.  If soul should exist in women of  one part of tho country and not in  another then God's work would be  incomplete.  Beauty is as strong in New York  as is in California. And there is  really less artificial beauty used in  New York than is used in California, judging from what I have  observed.  It is a bad plan to criticiz** beauty, as all real beauty is God given,  whether it comes from California  or any other part of the world.  Surely God does not pick out  certain states to bo particularly  blessed . with pretty women; they  are everywhere, and aro beautiful  according to tho amount of Godliness they have in them. Soul is  in every human being, tho more  soul tho more beauty.  Paint, powder and dyes aro a  small part of beauty. Thoy may  be a necessity at times, but they  are uot additions to real beauty.  Health, cleanliness and hygiene  do far more for beauty than all  the concoctions mado by chemists.  Real generosity of nature will  not be prejudiced; it will see  beauty whero it exists and glory in  its existence.  Remember: Beauty is delightful to all who can realize God's  work.������������������Lillian Russell.  WESTERN - - HOTELS.

The offer was made by the Federal  Mining Co. Jack Stewart and  other owners of the Silver Standard, together with John Retal-  lack of Kaslo, recently visited all  the mines near Hazelton.  substantially-constructed highway  in tho northwest, conservative estimates placing the cost at $05,000  or more than 83,000 a mile. The  thoroughfare is being constructed  with a view to operating large  capacity motor, trucks over it for  transporting ore to tho' railway  line, as the grade is less than two  per cent, at the steepest part.  Tho Idaho-Continental oompany  has had plans and   specifications  prepared for a 300-ton daily  capacity concentrating plant, the equipment for which has been ordered  through the purchasing department  of tho Amalgamated Copper Company at Butte,   Mont.    Tho machinery is to bo delivered at  Port-  hill by November 1st, when  it is  believed  tbe wagon  road will be  open, and will be taken in and installed   as   rapidly   as   possible.  Shipments will  probably, bo   forwarded from the mine as soon  as  tho road is in operation, as a considerable quantity   of   high-grado  ore is blocked  out and ready for  extraction.  The Idaho-Continentai was at  one time owned by Albert TUock-  mann, who in tho early days of  Rossland was propiietor of tho  International hotel and music hall.  He spent considerable money in  developing it, and it is a property  of much value, its great drawback  being lack of transportation facilities.���������Rossland Miner.  and smelting, companies i������ ' the  Koudenay and Boundary district  have paid dividends aggregating  $932,000.

The last, dividend of  50 cents, was. paid on September  30 last.  The Standard uiiiie at Silvorton  paid $325,000 since April .1 last.  To date, this year tlio British  Columbia Copper Company at  Greenwood has paid ������177,000 to  its shareholders.  Tlio Consolidated Mining and  Smelting Company of Cannda at  Trail lias paid $220,000 this year.  THE GRANBY  mine and smelter, aud only half as  much coke will bo required to smelt  a given tonnage of Hidden Creek  ore. The freight charge on a ton  of bullion from Grand Forks to tho  refinery in New Jersey is $14, and  from Hidden Creek only $12. It  is figured, therefore, that Hidden  Creek copper output will not cost  more than eight to eight and a half  cents a pound.  There is a good reason to expect  that Granby will gradually build  up a very large aud profitable  custom smelting business at Hidden Creek. The managements of  several mines in tho vicinity have  approached Granby officials on  this matter already. Granby has  made a cjonspicuous success in this  Upper Canada was retarded and  tho hardships of settlers aggravated  by the huge tracts of monopolized  land that lay between farm and  farm. So it is iu the Canadian  West today.  And now it is proposed to saddle the West, not only with a  land monopoly, but with a sort of  feudal system, with the dukes on  the top and humble peasants at  the bottom. Is not this a grand  gift from the East to the West?  Is it not a glorious way to make  West contented and promote  national'unity ?���������Toronto Star.

The Geological Survey of Canada has issued  a report on   the  geology, and  ore deposits  of   the  Phoenix   area   of   the   Boundary  district.    This is written by O. E.  LeRoy,   who made the geological  survey of the area, assisted  by C.  W. Drysdalo and W. H. Boyd, in  190S, 1909 and 1910.    Following a  history  and   bibliography   of   the  district, the writer goes very fully  into the geology and the ore deposits of the territory covered  by  the report,  gives extensive notes  on  tho  minerology  an a detailed  description  of the  mines   in   the  area.    Accompauing the report are  several illustrations of Phoenix and  neighborhood   and    topographical  and geological maps.  A big gold strike has been made  about twelve miles  from Telkwa  just opposite the   head   of   Deep  Caeek and  on the Babine slope.  Some weeks ago Dick Rogers  and  George Hazelton ran onto what is  one of  the  most  promisinc   gold  quartz countries in  the northern  interior.     Hugh McKay was prospecting around Owen Lake and as  soon as he heard of it  he started  for the new camp.      It was late in  the season and he was there about  the same time as several  others  and had to come back  on  account  of the snow.    McKay,   however,  saw the rock and he sized  up the  country which he says is a perfect  gold    bearing   formation   and   he  looks for a big rush up there in  the spring and he predicts that the  new district will  be one  of   tho  most important.  Tbe rock brought  down gave assays of 890 and  S94  in gold.    Tho piece that gave the  larger assay'also went ������19 in  silver and about 329 .in copper, making at total of $140.    Reports of  this strike had reached town before,  but no one had been in   who had  seen tlio district. .  Mr. McKay has holdings in the  Owen Lake district, close to Brown  and Woods, and he says that if  the assays which Brown had run  aro as good as they report, that  Brown aud Woods have an immense proposition,���������Hazelton Herald.  Writing in the Nelson News, A.  D. Wheeler says: "Few mining  camps havo experienced a more  checkered career than the old Hot  Springs, or Ainsworth, discovered  iu 1SS3, but practically prospected  in a 200-mile radius of its smelter.  Granby directors will probably  tako up and dispose of the financing question when thoy meet next  month. As there is some confusion  concerning this matter in the minds  of a fow stockholder.-*, I will explain it briefly.  ,  Less than $1,300,000 will here-  quired to complete the development  and equipment work at Hidden  Creek and put that property on a  producing basis. As Granby has  about $S00,000 of cash and quick-  assets and is earning from $100,000  to $140,000 a month, it can readily  meet.this expense without calling  on stockholders for assistance.  .  The only point for consideration  is whether stockholders are willing  to forgo dividends for another year.  If bonds were issued and sold to  raise the needed money, dividend  payments could be resumed immediately at the rate of $5 or $7 a  share annually. Some stockholders  are iu favor of such a course, but  others think it best to pay for the  new property's equipment, etc.,  from earnings and thus avoid any  increase in capitalization. It seems  to me that the latter course would  be the better one to follow.  Granby is not being conducted  as a raining company simply, in  tho older acceptance of the term.  It is rather a smelting and mining  enterprise. From $50,000 to $150,-  000 annually is expended by the  company ou exploration work with-  ore smelted at Grand . Forks being  approximately the lowest maintained anywl ere in the world.  Undoubtedly   millions   of   tons  more will-foe developed in its property  in  Phoenix;  but  thero is nn  occasion for extensive exploratory  work there at present, there beiug  a seven or eight year oro supply  blocked out  now.    Viewed   from  every standpoint, therefore, Granby  is in a very strong position and its  future outlook  is most promising.  It is  not surprising that  its stool-  is advancing steadily I figure  that  it is worth at least twice its present  price. ��������� George   L.    Walker,   in  Boston Commercial.  A Threatened Evil  and the claims generally located in  1SS4. The extent and accessibility  of the embryo mines qrickly drew  attention from the states south,  and the country rapidly filled with  prospectors and mining men. That  was tho real start of the whole  Kootenay section. Some inter-  mittant work had previously been  done on placer creeks, and some  slight effort made where the Bluebell mine now thrives so lustily,  but not until the winter of 1SS5  had white men, other than trappers, remained in over winter.  But the work of mining soon de-  velopedpromising claims and prospectors instead of retreating south  as winter approached, settled permanently in this beautiful section,  and by 18SG the Krao mine became the first silver-lead shipper  from British Columbia to the  United States.  The advent of Dr. Hendry, with  a small steam launch, made this  first shipment possible. The oro  had been packed personally by  Wheeler & Tobia from the mine to  the lake, and by loading the launch  and several lorge boats to the gunwale the shipment was taken to  Bonners Ferry and partially packed and hauled to Kootenai station  in Idaho and transhipped by rail  If a promising property is found  which can be had on favorable  terms it is optioned and diamond  drilled or other exploratory work  done. In the carrying out of this  policy the company may purchase  other mining property at almost  any time, and it will make Granby  a permanent business enterprise,  in contradistinction to one that is  digging out and gradually exhausting a single body of ore.  Although the Hidden Creek  property is located 000 or 700 miles  north -of Vancouver, it is on the  coast and the climate there is not  as severe as one would naturally  suppose. The winters aro not  nearly as cold as they aro at Phoenix and Grand Forks, where  Granby's operatingfj smelters and  mines aro located.  An average of about $107,000  monthly  has  been  earned by the  company  for  some time past on  ores from its Phoenix mines, which  yield about17A pounds of copper  and -31.10 gold and silver per ton.  The gross recoverable value of this  ore,   therefore,   is about $4.25 per  ton with the metal selling at eighteen cents.    At Hidden Creek  it is  expected that 40 pounds of copper  and 20 cents in gold  will be recovered, giving that oro a gross  to   Helena",   Mont.

It is figured that the cost of  treating a ton of Hidden Creek ore  will be about seventy-five cents  less than it is at Phoenix or Grand  Forks. There will bo a saving of  twonty-two or twenty-three cents a  To date this year five mining I ton on ore transportation between  A syndicate of capitalists, it is  reported, have secured a property  of 430,000 acres in Southern Alberta, which it intends to irrigate.  It will retain about half the land  and sell the rest to farmers. The  syndicate is entitled to be paid for  its irrigation work, font, surely,  half the land is an excessive provision for this. The Kingston  Standard says:���������  "We can see no other reason for  holding 215,000 acres than  to  retain it until it has acquired, through  the labor and energy of the settlers  on  the other half,  a greatly increased   value.    In   other  words,  these capitalists propose to come  over to Canada   and   derive   the  benefit of the unearned  increment  which  Lloyd  George  is going to  take from them iu Great Britain.  The name of the Duke of Sutherland is one of  ill omen.    He is  probably the most extensive laud  owner in Scotland,  and tho Crofters in his estates find it difficult  to keep starvation from their doors.  "The Dominion government is  pursuing a ruinous policy if it sells  large quantities of   laud   to   any  syndicate   without   making   it   a  condition   that   settlers   shall    be  placed on all the land, not part of  it, within a certain period of time,  aud that the  whole acreage shall  become the property of these individual settlors within  a   stated  number of years.    We do not want  to have repeated  in  Canada  the  kind of serfdom that exists in the  British isles as a  result of a few  persons owning immense tracts of  land.     Wo   want   no   over-lords  here."  Three cheors for these sentiments. Surely Canada has had  enough experience of the evils of  land monoply from the Clerg Reserves down to Mackenzie and  Mann. Surely it has heard enough  plausible excuses for huge grants  of land. Thoy were to reward  loyalty and military servioe; they  were to establish religion; they  wero to encourage the building of  railways; they wore to provide  settlement.  What really happens? The  lands were given to. old soldiers,  and tho soldiers then sold out to  speculators. Speculators are dealing today in South African scrip.  The Canadian Pacific Railway today claims that its land grant is a  "hidden asset" for the profits of  which it is not bound to account to  the country.   Tho  settlement  of  A dance hall  is  flourishing at  Mile 52, B. C, five miles  west of  Tete Jaune Cache, where eighteen  motley girls nightly swing to  the  inharmonius bows of two  violins.  Permission to locate.at the Cache  was denied  by the railway   contractors,   which   order  compelled  the promoters to locate five miles  away from  active railway   work.  The tinselled dames and promoters  are reported to bo doing a thriving  trade in providing light entertainment for the myriads who congregate there nightly.    One man recently had his skull fractured during one of   these   entertainments  and is reported to have died from  the   consequences.    There   is   no  liquor sold openly,   but the bootlegger is in evidence at every corner willing to  rehabilitate   weak  hearts at a dollar a  dose.    The  charge for a dance is twenty-five  cents, which includes a bottle of  pop, a bag of peanuts and a dried  out sandwich.     "It appears somewhat out of touch with nature,"  ventured tho narrator of this item,  "to see a dance hall girl, after a  dance, go up to a counter and call  for a sandwich; but this is what  most of them do."���������Fort George  Herald.

PHONES        - 5L and 5R  THE HARDEST PART  OBITUARY  Captain John  C. Hodgson,  one  of the most highly esteemed  mining men of the early days of the  copper    country,    died    at   East  Houghton, Mich., Oct. S.    He was  born in Vermont in  1818 and in  tho early 60's became captain of  the Grand Portage mine at Huron-  town.    In 18G7 he   went to tho  Osceola and while there he and the  late William B. Frue, a prominent  mining man of that time, became  interested in the rich silver mine  on Silver Island,   Lake Superior,  near Port Arthur.    He developed  and  operated  this mine, beneath  the waters of Lake Superior, till its  further working became dangerous  and it had to be abandoned.    It  was one of the richest silver mines  in history.  A BIG MINE  The Bunker Hill & Sullivan, at  Wardner, Idaho, the world's greatest producer of lead-silver ore, has  just    passed    its   twenty-seventh  birthday,  the   mine having been  staked by O'Eourke and  Kellogg  on September 10th, 1885.    On September   4th,  dividend   No.   180,  amounting   to   $65,400,   was   declared,  which brings the total of  dividends paid  up to date up to  813,715,550.    The physical condition of the mine is better today  than for years past, the ore reserves now blocked out insuring work  for many years to come.    Work on  the lower levels is disclosing some  extensive   ore   bodies   and   with  hundreds of acres of virgin ground  yet to proppect and develop the  mine has a bright future.   About  700 men are now employed.   The  milling capacity of 1,500 tons daily  is being taxed to its capacity and  the installing of another unit of  500 tons is one of the improvements of the near future.  Surprising as it may seem, the  Grand Trunk Pacific is just now  entering upon one of the hardest  parts of their whole work, the 215  miles from Tete Jaune Cache to  this point,  alBO surprising it is to  learn that this work is made the  hardest not because there is heavy  rock work, but because there is an  absence of rock.    On the contrary,  the whole stretch is along sidehills  composed of the   slipperiest  and  muddiest mica clay  to  be found  anywhere.     The   engineers   have  now run into a constituent which  defies all the laws known to  railroading science,  and   which   will  keep the shovels working for two  years after the steel  is   actually  laid.  Contractors Burns & Jordan, at  tho mouth of the Clearwater, mile  136, have a tunnel contract that  is taxing human ingenuity, and in  order to circumvent the deposit of  slippery mica clay which exists  there have decided to install a  large freezing plant, with which to  freeze the ground in order that  they may prosecute the work of  building the tunnel. The ground  will be frozen, then excavated,  cribbed and walls of cement put  in. The tunnel is a quarter of a  mile long and thirty feet high, and  one of the longest in this section.���������  Fort George Herald.  01 CIGAR STORE  COPPER STREET, GREENWOOD  Pipe Fittings of all  kinds.
