Jim Coplaud, of Bridesville,
paid The Ledge a visit last week.
He came to this district over 60
years ago and is still hale and

health is due to never worrying
and -always sleeping with his
head to -the north. He tells
many interesting yarns of the old
days and hopes to some day write

A crowded house attended Hon.-
J.   D.   McLean's  meeting in  the
Greenwood Theatre lasfe Saturday
night to liear_him give an account
of the Legislatures doings during
the past four years.    None  were
disappointed   for   the    Honorable
gentleman wa3 at his best aud went
thoroughly iuto all   the principal
acts passed   by   fehe   government.
Mayor Gulley acted as   chairman.
The Hon. Dr. McLean was greeted
with loud applause time after feime
as he scored the opposition or lauded the good work of.the present administration.     He   wenfc   for the
leader of the opposition wifeh  hammer aud tongs showing the many
inconsistencies of some of Bowser's
The Pacific Great Eastern Ry
was dealt with at length, and he
stated that the Bowser government
had promised to build this road
for $25,000,000 but had only completed about 170 miles of the road
with this money and as a result iit
was now a white elephant and the
people.of the province had to pay
82,500,000 annually for the blunder the Bowser government had
made. The reason the people
were now paying heavy taxes' was
on account of the extravagance of
the late government who squandered money on useless courfe houses,
jails, wharfs, etc., anything to win
votes and now these buildings were
closed up.
Through the strict business ability of the present administration
the Province was on a sound
financial basis.
Dealing wifeh the Moderation Act
he stated thafe an Act. would be
passed limiting fehe amount of
liquor sold per month to each person and any who violated fehis Act
would be-deprived of" his "license.'
jSTo person under 21 years of age
would be granted a license.
The speaker stated fehat ife was
he who guided the Mothers Pensions Act through fehe Legislature.
Among other good measures passed
were the Childrens' Welfare Act,
Womans' Suffrage and Equality of
Married Women. ~
No   rash- pre-election  promises
were made by the candidate bufe he
stated fehat every request made to
him during   the   past ffour years
had been granted and he has done
more for this district than the previous member.- -He- is confident of
victory for the Oliver Governments
and is sure tbat he, too, will be returned with a handsome majority.
At the the close of his 2J* hour address the doctor was given a   real
good applause.   '
The mayor asked if any- in the
audience would like to query the
doctor upon ' any point, but all
seemed satisfied. The meeting
broke up after singing the National
During the past few weeks Greenwood bas been  having somev very
good political gatherings   and  the
one on   Monnay   night  with  Mr.
Maitland, solicitor for the  City  of
Vancouver, as the principle speaker,, was no exception.    In  fact it
was enlivened by a certain amount
of   heckling.     Vituperations and
invectives were indulged in  by all
parties, but Mr. Maitland with his
sharp and witty replies proved one
too many for the disturbers.
W. H. Docksteader,'as chairman
announced fehat Dr. Rose, M.P.P.
was unadvoidably detained, and
then introduced the speakers,
Mr. Jackson was in good fighting
form and scored fche government on
many points; lie Baid he felt the
honor on being nominated as the
Conservative standard bearer and
would use all his influence in the
besfe interestA.of this district. He
said that the roads were in a dilapidated state and ifc would be his
duty to see that the roads were kept
in better, condition and new ones
'made iii certain localities. He
would represent this district well
and faithfully.
Mr. Maitland critized  fehe government for their lack of initiative
and pulrup a plucky defense of the
Bowser platform.     Mr.   Maitland
took the sixteen planks of the Oliver platform   and   tore   fehem to
pieces, particularly going for the j
attorney general's department.- He
said   that   the-  passing    of   the
Womans' Suffrage act and Equality
of Married Women Act was merely
a trend'-of the limes !as"ofeber 7 governments had done the same.    He
proved conclusively that the Work-
mans' Compensation Act   while a
good act was not properly managed.
He claimed that fehe Oliver government had   nofe   the   nerve   to go
ahead  wifeh   the  building of the
P. G. E.   Ry.    which   would   go
through some of fehe best districts
in the province,   but instead  had
given some of fehe rolling stock   to
American and eastern firms.    The
Conservatives   had good   men in
all the ridings and he felt satisfied
that on Dec 1st a great majority of
them would be elected.   Altogether
Mr.  Maitland   gave   au inspiring
and vigorous address, punctuating,
his remarks with witty stories.
The National Anthem was sung
bringing an instructive and lively
meeting to close.
Mining News
The main vein on Morning Star
at Hall Siding near Nelson was
tapped last week. The vein bf ore
encountered is ten feet "thick,
carrying big values iu copper, and
gold. Ifc can be traced by surface
showings for 500 feet. This property is owned by Terzian Bros.
"Half the machinery at the-
Allenby mill has been put in good
running condition and a fifty ton (
car of concentrates is being shipped
out daily. This means that, approximately 800 fons of ore is being
put through daily. It is expected
tbat from now on the output will
be steadily increased in proportion
as the balance of the machinery is
completed and brought into activity. ' '���Princeton Star.
The steamship  Victoria  landed
350 persons from Nome on' her last
trip  to Seattle   from   the   north.
Former    residents,  of   Nome   in
Seattle predict 'that this marks the -
passing of the once famous  beach
mining town.    The most  of those
who returned to the states on the
Victoria will remain   there,  said
passengers who declared that there
were less than 200 persons left in
Nome.    In  the summer of 1898,
following the gold strike,   Nome
had a population of 15,000.
There appears to be a  somewhat
better feeling in the Eastern" copper  :
market, but some students of the
situation are inclined to look upon
the   expressions   of   optimism ' as '
somewhat forced, says the Spokane   -
Mining Truth.    There has been a
slight increase in   the volume of
business, with sales at from 14 to
15 cents,  but the improvement isQ
attributed to placing of some orders"'
for spring manufacture and untfer
the present unsettled t conditions is'
nofe expected to spread far.'  As a
matter of cold fact,  the enormous
surplus now existing must act as a
govenor of prices for a long feime
to come and there is little doubt
that many of fehe high cost mine*
will be forced to close down.    Foreign demand seem to offer the only
possibility for  real  betterment of   -
the  domestic market and there is
not much hope of fehat for some
feime feo come at least.    The  recent
heavy declines ir. standard  copper
securities offer a fair barometer of
real conditions in the trade..

War and Crime
Evidence Shows That Increase in
Crime Follows War.
There is an interesting theory that
a great war is always followed by an
increase in crime. Lifc in thc field,
with its hideous sights and grim
duties, is supposed to breed in a certain small portion of the combatants
a contempt for human lifc, and when
demobilization7' takes place there is
a period of lawless violence. It must
be admitted that there is a certain
amount of evidence in favor of this
theory. In Great Britain there has
been an almost unparalled series of
murders during the last year or so,
and many observers arc disposed to
think that something in the nature
of a.crime "wave" is sweeping ovcr
Australia.���Melbourne Argus.
Some Universities Loan Skeletons At
25 Cents a Bone.
"Lending libraries" in which bones
play thc same part as books do in the
orthodox library, are not uncommon
in connection with universities. Any
bone in the collection may be borrowed and kept for a week on payment of 25 cents. Thesc libraries
arc in some cases valued as highly as
$25,000, a skeleton complete being
worth from $30 to $100, according to
its condition. A skull brings from
$1.25 to $5; and a perfect specimen���
a comparative rarity���as much as $50.
Leg, arm and collar bones command
a ready market at from 50 cents to
$1.25 each, while a perfect string of
spinal vertebrae is valued at $5.
C.P.R. to Start Gradinff.
It is thc intention of thc Canadian
Pacific Railway to start thc grading
of the branch line running into Drumheller in the spring, according to D.
C. Coleman, general manager of
western lines, who was in Calgary recently. Mr. Coleman stated that the
line when opened would provide a
line to the rich country along thc
Knee Hill between Acme and Drumheller.

Asbestos From Quebec.
Canada at thc present time leads
thc world in asbestos production, and
the place which the province of Ontario occupies in the world as a
source of supply of nickel is closely
approximated by Quebec in the matter ' of asbestos. Today Quebec's
deposits of asbestos are estimated to
supply between 85 and 90 pcr cent, of
trie world's consumption.

Forms and Functions  of
Governments in Canada
a democratic form of government it is of the utmost importance that the masses of thc people who constitute thc democracy have
a clear grasp ancl an intelligent understanding of the machinery and functions of government, and this is especially true in countries like Canada
where the powers, responsibilities and functions cf government arc divided
as between Federal, Provincial and municipal legislative and administrative
Important as it has always been that people should havc an;underst'and-
ing of the political conditions under which they live and are governed, it is
perhaps even more important today than at any previous period inhistory.
In these times, when it would be both idle and foolish to deny that a spirit
of unrest prevails, changes in the existing forms of government arc being
advocated in many quarters. -������ Utopian but utterly impracticable ideas are
advanced by some organizations ; others urge a complete revolution along
lines advocated by adherents of thc One Big Union; some would have thc
Soviet system of Russia introduced; the cry of "self determination" is raised, although it is not made vcry clear what calls for determination; and, in
general, there is a re-grouping and realignment of the masses of the people j
in regard to matter political.
Because of these conditions, it is morc important than ever beforc that,
there should bc a clear understanding of thc present svstcm, methods and'
functions of government in Canada which these several bodies of opinion ,
would alter,  change,  and, in  somc instances,  absolutely destroy  if thcy
had their way.
It is unquestionably true that in these Western Provinces, where such
a large percentage of thc people havc comc from other lands where condi-i
tions and forms of government arc quite different, much confusion exists
as to thc different spheres of government vested in thc Federal Parliament
at Ottawa and in thc Legislative Assemblies of the various Provinces.     Be-,
cause of this, it has been suggested that a scries of articles of a purcly cdu-
��� cational character dealing with government in Canada would be both valuable and timely. j
,For example, thc newcomer, whether from thc United Statcs or some'
European country, finds it exceedingly difficult to understand the relation ���
which exists between the British Crown and Governments in Canada.     Thc \
immigrant from Europe, familiar with thc old autocratic monarchial gov-j
eminent in his native land, entertains thc idea that somewhat similar conditions prevail in Canada, possibly even worse, and that Canada, as a pos-|
scrsion of thc British Crown, is ruled by governors appointed overseas.    In-*
coming settlers from thc United Statcs, in many instances, have a vague'
and hazy notion that in Canada people do not.enjoy thc same liberties and
principles of democraic responsible government prevailing across the line���j
that, because we arc subjects of King George V., we do not enjoy complete
independence of action, and many believe that Canada has to pay tribute or
taxes to England.
The very fact that all legislation is enacted in thc name of thd King,
��� that the Government is spoken of as the King's Government, and that the
Royal assent, is required to all legislation passed before it becomes law, leads
to a belief in many quarters that Canadians do not enjoy all thc rights of
self-government and as full exercise of all liberties as do thc people of thc
United Statcs or any other country. , ; '
As a matter of fact, King George V. exercises far less power in Canada
; than the President does in thc United States. The King in England, or
his representative, the Governor-General in Canada, or any of the Provincial Lieutenant-Governors, have the power to dismiss their ministers from
office. But the President of thc United Statcs has the samc power. In thc
United Statcs, however, the people have no rcmcdycxcept to elect a new
President when the next election comes round, be that time long or short,
In Canada, thc people must bc consulted in a general election immediately,
��� and, if thcrr verdict is in favor of the dismissed ministers, the Governor-
General, or the Lieutenant-Governor, as the case may be, is recalled from
office. ..   . "...       ... ���', XX
-,The King, or his .representative, is obliged to accept, as his ministers!
and advisers those" men who.are shown to have the confidence of the people!
through their election to Parliament or.Legislature, and. who command the
support. of a majority - of all thc members in Parliament, .or'. Legislature.
The moment a Ministry loses the support of such a majority of thc people's
clcctcd^rcprcscntativcs, it must resign and make way for a new Ministry
possessing such support: In the-United States, on the other hand, "the
President personally selects his own cabinet of ministers, men "who may, or
'may not, be the choice of the people, and men who may not command the
support of a majority'in Congress. - ���'���'"-'"".-..'"

Origin of Word "Poltroon"
In Olden Days Meant Person Without Thumb.
The word "poltroon" has a rather
interesting origin, having started out
in life as pollicc truncus, a Latin
phrase, meaning onc who had been
deprived of his thumb. In thc olden
days when bows and arrows wcrc the
main weapon of thc so'.dicr, the
thumb vvas a most essential part of
thc hand, for without it thc archer
could not hope to draw thc bow with
anything like good aim or exert his
arm's full strength. To avoid military service many a man chopped off
his own thumb or got his wife to perform the act for him. In timc the
man who did this bit of self-exemption became known as a "poltrun,1'
and the last change to its present
usage is easily traced.

Weed Train Will Be Run Through
Prairie Provinces.
(l Arrangements for the running of a
"weed train" through Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta for six weeks,
commencing about thc last week in
January, were made by thc Deputy
Ministers of Agriculture of the three
provinces, who met in Saskatoon recently. Thc train will bc equipped
with all of the necessary material to
demonstrate thc growth of the various weeds of the prairie provinces
through thcir various stages, as well
as thc best means of eradicating them.
The train will bc composed of two
lecture cars, a' demonstration car,
and a sleeper and diner for the personnel. It will be manned by representatives of the Departments of
Agriculture of the" provinces concerned, their colleges of agriculture,
and the rural municipal associations.
A representative of each province
will -accompany the train throughout its entire trip, although in each
province the lecturers will be chosen
from that province. It is planned
to cover with the train this year as
many as possible of the points on the
Canadian Pacific Railway, and next
ycar to take up the Canadian National lines.���'; There will be two
meetings a day. Two weeks will be
spent in each province.

Government does not take action
within a reasonable time.

Boost Greenwood.
Why should Greenwood stick iu
11 rut when there are many  opportunities, which   if grasped   by  go
ahead   citisens,   would   put    this
good old town  once  more  on  the
map?    There is au Industrial Commission which will advance money
for any   feasible   scheme.    It has
already loaned millions and thereby given employment to thousands,
Enterprising   citizens   should   get
together and   endeavor   to secure
some of this money for industries.
Greenwood raised ��65,000  in  the
last Victory Loan and if it can   do
this   it   can   easily   raise    a   few
thousand for   a   factory   of some
kind.    The Ledge  knows  of  one
man who is ready to put $2000 into
a   like   project.      The  Industrial
Commission   would   advance    the
necessary amount to start a tannery
or a box factory, but   the  citizens
must show their willingness to put
their shoulder  to   the   wheel  and
boost.    This is not a matter for one
or   two   individuals,   but  for  the
public to show their faith  in, good
old Greenwood..   "There is .a tide
. iu ihe affairs of  men,"   etc.    Get
together; form a Board, of Trade," a
club, anything just as  long- as  its
ono purpose is   to.  get'.industries.
Let. there be  no  back-sliding;  "the
bigger, the   obstacles,   the greater
. the energy.    No.' matter' what  the
. difficulties may be success is bound
"to meet with co-operation. .
