Yanks Want It  While the majority of Canadian  newspapers oppose reciprocity, the  press of the United States is practically a unit in its favor.   Tho  great bulk of both political parties  in the United States are behind tho  agreement.    In Canada   virtually  the entire Conservative party and  a considerable section of the Liberal party aro fighting ratification.  Why this difference in tho receptions accorded the   agreement in  the two countries?   The answer is  plain.    The Americans see .in reciprocity a means of securing control  of Canada's vast natural' resources  and of dominating the Dominion at  first commercially and then afterwards politically.    For those very  reasons wide-awake Canadians look  askance at the project.   They are  unwilling to sacrifice their  fiscial  freedom to the republic to become  commercially subject to American  trusts or to  expose their national  status to powerful foreign influences.���������Toronto News.

It  seems that the New Jersey people,  possibly by  some survival  of the  old blue laws aro infected with the  same bug.   The New  Jersey Legislature proposes to punish women  who  wear tho  harem  skirt with  imprisonment   for   life.    Possibly  these male  prudes  would like to  affix the scarlet   letter  upon  the  divided skirt, the peck-a-boo waist  or any other article   of feminine  wearing    apparel     which    meets  with     the      Puritanical     disapproval.    There was a time when  the woman who rode a bicycle was  thought to bo extremely   improper  and there is no doubt but many an  Easterner still believes that the bifurcated   habit which   permits   a  women  to ride astride���������the only  safe way of riding, by the way���������is  positively    immodest. "But   if   a  woman  may wear a divided skirt  on   top  of a  horse, why  not on  course, I know what bosky is, (  through seeing ParJcins when he  come from sea. and father when he  brought his load home after closing  time. I've heard the potman say  dad was bosky and Chinese and  top of the pavement? .It has been  said that gentle and yielding as  woman is declared to be, there is  one thing that no stern male has  ever succeeded in forcing here to  do���������either to assume or cast away  any form of garment on which she  has set her mind. It is time wasted to interfere and, moreover, in  these days of suffragettes, this is especially Avoman's own business. It  may be said, incidentally, that in  more than half the world women  wear trouseis. Such is the case  amongst all Mohammedan people  and amongst the Chinese. The  legislature of New Jersey had best  go and volunteer their help to the  people of China and Persia. There  is no doubt that their pudicity  would be remarkably received.  .   The American Object  What would bo more offensive  than   Mr.  Taft's statements that  Canada is at "the parting of the  ways," and that the object of American policy is to effect the fiscal  separation of the Dominiou from  the Mother Country.    No one can  move among   Americans without  exasperation  at their easy confidence that at last they had found  the key  to the fiscal subjugation  of Canada, and that the ultimate  result can be   only the   political  amalgamation of the two countries.  This   in   itself  is   no   reason for  quarreling with the American people.    It is natural that they should  desire to  manufacture for Canada  and  to have an equal partnership  in our markets and resources.. But  it is surprising   that   the   object  should be so boldly avowed.-   They  thoroughly    understand   that   we  cannot compete with the huge Am-  merican trusts, that access to Canadian raw material will enormously  strengthen their industrial supremacy,  and that   under   the   trade  agreement they will divert a great  volume of business from Canadian  ports and Canadian carrying companies,   and seriously cripple the  Dominion as a competitor in  foreign markets.    But the very reasons which commend the agreement  to the United States should ensure  its rejection in  Canada if we are  not a less spirited people,  with a  less intense national consciousness  and a less zealous regard  for our  fiscal independence and our national integrity.

It has  become one of mighty nations of the  earth   by    protecting    American  labor,   American   industries   and  American   agriculture.    Who   believes that if the United States had  only three or four millions of farmers it would open the door to the  competition of thirty millions of  farmers in an adjoining country?  Who   believes   that   Washington  would legislate to check the inflow  of foreign capital and foreign industries?   Who believes that the  United  States with   unexhausted  natural resources would share its  patrimony with an agressive rival?  Who   believes that the  republic  would consider a policy that would  drive trade from its ocean ports,  railways and steamships into foreign channels?   Only by the policy  that the United States has pursued  can we create homo markets for  Canadian   producers,   ensure the  growth of Canadian   towns   and  cities and the expansion of Canadian industries avoid a surplus of  labor with decreasing wages,  and  maintain and   extend   the  great  transportation enterprises that wo  have created at enormous cost and  upon   which largely  depend   the  commercial uuityand the political  cohesion  of    Canada.   For    this  country the. trade agreement is a  form of self destruction and it is  inconceivable  that tho   Canadian  people will commit suicide in order  to save a group of party politicans  who already have had fifteen years  of office, patronage and plunder.

Rank of Lumber Provinces  The total lumber cut of the Dominion of Canada for 1910 has just  been compiled by the Forestry  Branch. Eeports were received  from 2,763 firms operating sawmills, which is nearly 700 more  than reported last year. Thus 1910  report is a better estimate of the  actual lumber production than ever  before. Nearly five billion feet of  lumber was cut during 1910  throughout the nine provinces of  Canada, which represents a total  value to the country of seventy-  seven and a half million dollars  more than the value of the 1909  lumber cut. Ontario, as in former  years, holds the premier position  as a lumber province. Its forests  are made up of diversified species,  which enabled it to produce one-  third of the lumber for the Dominion. British Columbia, however,  will soon take Ontario's place, from  predictions made on the 1910 report. In 1909, the Western province produced a trifle over half as  much lumber as was cut in Ontario, while for last year the  amounts returned from the two  provinces were practically the  same. Although one-quarter more  lumber was cut in Quebec in 1910  than in the year previous, the increase was not sufficient to maintain it in second place of import-J  auce, which position was usurped  by British Columbia. Tho remaining provinces New Brunswick,  Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, Alberta, Manitoba and Prince Edward Island . cut lumber in the  order of importance given, but together supply, one-sixth of the  amount for Canada.  Looking' To Canada  Not so long-ago many' United  States business concerns believing  that there was a long period of  prosperity ahead invested heavily  in plant extensions, tying up a  considerable proportion of- this  liquid credit in brick, mortar, machinery and other more fixed forms  of investment. When the check  came an over-expansion of productive capacity was inevitable.  Railways retrenched, business  slowed down, the output of coal  and lumber was reduced, and the  long slow process of debt liquidation began. The United States is  now in the throes of this ordeal.  It wants markets for its manufactures and for its surplus farm  products, and hopes . under reciprocity to sell greatly increased  quantities of both in Canada. Mr.  Taft says that reciprocity will  bring about.this result, and American newspapers declare that the  United StateB will treble its sales  in this country.  Farm Prices Lower   .  Another trans-Mississippi banker points to the heavy reductions  that have lately occurred in the  prices of American farm products.  He says: "Grain has been decidedly lower; cattle have declined in  our central markets from $1 to $2  per cwt.; sheep and lambs from ������2  to go per cwt." and hogs about 84  per cwt." Hence the surplus of  American farm and ranch productB  that has already begun to flood the  Toronto and other Canadian markets! Canadian farmers and Canadian'workmen are far better off today than American farmers and  American workmen. In view of  such conditions why should the  people of Canada take the risk of  pooling their abundant prosperity  with American depression?  ^mmmmmmnimmmimnmmntmmmmninimm^  I Greenwood to Phoenix Stage I  |~ Leaves Greenwood Daily at 3 p. m.

Last week the ledge in tho No 0  tunnel of tho Standard mine in the  Slocan, was struck at a distance of  nbout 2,000 feet from the mouth of  tho tunnel.  There aro four men working at  Iho No. 1, in Ainsworth camp.  The plans aro out for the building of ii smelter for the treatment  uf zinc ores of tho Kaslo-Slocan  district by the natural gas process  recently discovered, which has  revolutionized the zinc industry in  Missouri. The plant will., be located at some point in the natural  line of the C.P.  at  Dunmore, a fow miles distant.  Across the gulch from the Payne  bluff is a region  that  will amply  pay  for   prospecting   thoroughly,  fcjcveral  claims have been worked  in a more or less   desultry fashion  and a few strikes have been made.  On one claim, the O. K., there was  i'ound   about six   inches of   good  galena, which assayed G5 per cent,  lead aud 70 ounces of silver.    Looking across the gulch from the site  of the old McGuigan station, can  be seen   numerous rusty prophry  dikes on the side of the mountain.  This is the claim referred to.    Towards  the summit a good many  dikes are outcroping, some of which  contain lead carbonates and small  specks  of galena.    The mountain  to our  knowledge  was never thoroughly prospected.    Further on towards Bear  Lake and the summit  of the Loudon Hill, large quartz  ledges are iound.    Near the Blackbird is a slate   formation cut by  -numerous quartz  veins,   some of  which  carry  rich   dry ore.    Zinc  ore near the Blackbird has been  found  carrying high silver values  iu grey copper.    Over the summit  is the North Fork of Carpenter, a  region rich in dry ores.    It is all  good mineral territory and   when  tho times pick up will undoubtedly  receive its full share of prospecting  effort.    As far as fifteen miles up  the North Fork many good claims  have been staked.���������Kaslo Kooten-  aian.  'Work has been resumed on the  old Caaba mine, near Nighthawk,  Wash.  month.

DON'T MISS IT  If reciprocity is defeated our  agriculturists will soon get control  of the British markets to the comparative exclusion of the Americans. Tho last British election  showed that the Tariff Reformers  are already more numerous than  the Free Traders in England alone.  Forty-eight per cent, of the electors of the United Kingdom favored  the Chamborliiin policy.' The inter-  Imperial preference project has  made notable progress in old Cob-  denite strongholds such as Manchester. It is a solid Lancashire  and "a solid North" no longer.  Tlio recent protectionist demonstrations in Manchester itself was  so striking as to convince tho Free  Traders that their day is almost  done.  Their sun will set as soon as tho  present   constitutional crisis   and  the Home Rule Bill  are out of the  way.    Iroland    is    strongly    for  Tariff Reform, aud  the Irish vote,  added to the English majority will  swamp the Cobdenitcs.    What a  pity it would be, therefore, for the  Canadian farmer  to throw, up his  hauds just on tho eve of attaining  the greatest commercial advantage  over opened to an agricultural community!    Our farmers should ensure the defeat of reciprocity, for  by so doing they can soon virtually  control  the British markets.    Unless  reciprocity   is. defeated they  will lose one of the most  remarkable economic  opportunities ever  offered any considerable section  of  the human race.  - SHALL WE DO THIS  Forced for half a century by the  exclusive fiscal policy of the United  States' to spend hundreds of mill1  ions on Canadian ports, Canadian  railways, Canadian canals, and  general national equipment to drive  trade from east to" went, we now  join with Washington to injure our  own investments, and divert trade  from thearterieswe have established at such enormous cost and sacrifice. For more than forty years  we have been making a nation under the shadow of the hostile fiscal  legislation of the neighboring"  country. We have knit province  to province by links of steel, by  valuable waterways, by a strengthening commercial partnership. Is  it arguable that we can reverse this  policy without heavy loss to established interests anil acute danger  to tbe national fabric. Can wo do  it without disturbing many prosperous enterprises, without checking  investment of capital in many directions, without pnjmlice to various classes of securitiei-, without a  general loss of conliilenue, without  a general loss of confidence, with-'  out serious commercial depression?  These aro questions which the  Canadian voters must seriously  consider before going to tho polls  this month.���������Vernon News.

A rich strike has been made in  the Yellowhead district by an old  Lardeau prospector in whom many  local people will be interested, and  the news of the strike was communicated to this  oflice  by means  of a letter which speaks very highly  of the prospects of  mining in that  district. ; In part the letter says  that a big find of gold, copper and  silver ore has been made on the  Moose river,  Yellowhead,   by the  Teer Brothers, who for years were  prospecting in  the  Lardeau, and  the lucky prospectors   are    very  much  elated  over the find.    Another old timer of the Lardeau who  has made a good   strike in   the  same district is Billy Holloway,  who it is claimed  has located one  of  the biggest showings of gold,  and silver ore ever made in  the  North country.    With him in his  new locations is associated Mr. and  Mrs. Nelson and W. Douglas. The  ore samples from these properties  are now in Nelson being assayed,  and arrangements are being made  to develope the property this winter.���������Revelstoke Mail-Herald.  During July the Nicola Valley  Coal Co., at Middesboro/ produced  10,000   tons of   coal.   The   new  tipple will be finished in October.  At the Coalmont coal mines the  main tunnel is seven by   eleven  feot in size and is in 1,500 feet.  Another tunnel ia to be started 600  feet below the main tunnel.   Next  spring the  company   will   install  200 coke ovens, and make coke for  tho Boundary smelters.   The raii-  road   will   reach    Coalmont  this  The Tourist Trade  Year by year the traffic to tho  Canadian Rocky Mountains is increasing at such a great rate that  the mountain hotels have some  trouble in satisfying all the demand  for accomodation during the season.  The Canadian Pacific Railway is  continuously improving and adding to its chain of mountain hotels  but even with the extra facilities  thus afforded the accomodations  are taxed to the uttermost. Every  train westward takes with it a new  contingent of tourists and it has  become . the fashionable' thing to  spend a week or ten days in the  mountains before going on to the  coast.  Banff as being in the centre of  Canadian National Park is naturally one of the favorite stop-over  points for travellers. It is situated  in a district which is most advantageous for mountain .climbing,  fishing and other sports and as a  result the C.P.R. hotel at this  point is well patronized. Recently  the C.P.'R. made several new improvements consisted of the addition of two new wings and a new  swimming pool. The wings are  built in form of towers and contain sixty bed rooms. They are  five storeys high and like the rest  of the hotel are of stone and mill  construction. The ground floor of  the new wing is given up to a  spacious sun parlor while there is  a driveway under the other wing.  From now on this sun parlor will  be a feature of the hotel accomodation. It ia fifty feet square and  on three sides of it there is a raised  dais reached by a series of steps,  where the guests may rest while  enjoying the view from the broad  windows. Beyond the dais there  is a conservatory where flowers  bloom in great profusion and the  whole parlor is surrounded by  glass walls giving the sunlight free  access to tho room. The parlor is  beautifully finished with couches  and easy chairs and tho British  Columbia coiling is supported by a  aeries of arches and columns.  The swimming pool is situated  north of tbe hotel and is protected  by a number of awnings. It is  120 feet long and GO feet wide and  is built entirely of concrete. There  are sixty dressing rooms for guests  wishing to use the pool, these being  situated in a ISO foot building to  the rear of tho baths. The upper  story of this building is fitted up  with Turkish baths and there is  underground connection with the  hotel. In the centre of the large  pool there is a small plunge bath  where sulphur water is used. This  smaller pool is 24 feet by 80 feet.  Both tho sun parlor and tho  swimming pools were opened sometime ago and thoy have been much  praised by guests stopping at tho  hotel.  A perfect town is dial, in which  you see tho miners patronizing the  home merchants, tlie laborers  spending the money they earn with  their tradesmen, and all animated  by a spirit that thoy will not pur-  chose articles abroad if they can  he bought at home.

The  'latest time was in 1903, when a whole nation hold him in honor as a valiant,'  and true sportsman, making his third brave but vain attempt to take a silver  cup back to England.   On this occasion he lived like a prince on his steamer  "Erin," surrounded by his fleet of thirty-three boats���������steamers, houseboats,  barges, tugs, cruisers, steam launches, gigs, jolly boats and dingles���������maintained at his expense and manned by over two hundred men. ��������� -  i  .. Sir Thomas was born in Ireland, but spent his early years in Scotland;  his education was a hurried, unconventional, picked-up variety, and at fifteen,'  with rosy dreams, he ran awayfrom home, smuggled himself into a steamer  and came to New York.  His eight dollars did notjast long, and after-working  in the rice fields of South Carolina, driving a street car in New Orleans, can-..  vassing for a crayon portrait concern, stealing rides on freight cars, and making a day-by.-day living as best he could, went back two years later to Glasgow,  empty of purse but rich in experience.    -  The prodigal was received with open arms, and with ������100 of bis father's  savings, he opened a little meat and provision store.  He introduced American *  ideas, worked, as ha says, "twenty-flye hours a day," and advertised to the  limit of his ingenuity.   One day, seven'of the leanest, gauntest, hungriest men'  in the kingdom paraded the town in Indian file, bearing on their backs the'  legend: "We are going to Lipton's."   Next day, seven of the fattest men that  could be found, walked the streets proclaiming in large letters :"S "We have  been to Lipton's."   Meanwhile, the proprietor slept under the counter.  ���������*This little shop in High street was the beginning of Lipton's 500 stores  throughout England, his fruit farms in Kent, bakeries in Glasgow, the greatest tea plantations in the world in Ceylon, his curing factories in Liverpool, c  his candy manufactory in London, his fruit trees in Georgia, and his other  vast industries, giving employment to ten thousand people, and having made  for their owner a fortune of $50,000,000 and an Income of $7.50 a minute. *  He gave ������25,000 for the Jubilee  Memorial dinner to* the poor  of.-.Lon-  don, and his check seemed little to him when his eyes filled with tears a*' the  sight of 310,000 poor people eating as his guests.* Not till later did the world *  learn that it was his gift; for tae only thing he never advertises Is his charity.  liatind ic-o-dlnj: to Act of tha PuUtm-pl of C������n������ 4������. la iio je-jr 18M, ir w, C.ltMlc at th������ Dcp-Jtm-aJ ot.AHjculture.
