While such large amounts are
necessary for the successful prosecution of the war, our representatives in the federal and provincial
parliaments should endeavor to reduce tlie cost of governments.
The ministers of the crown and
members of parliament should
take the lead in making sacrifices.
The salaries of federal ministers,
speaker of the Louse and leader of
the opposition could very well be
reduced-to ��2,500 a year. Members of the senate aud commons
would be well paid for the work
they do if they were to receive
SI,000 a year instead of ��2,500.
If the departments were run on
S hours a day aud work done the
cost would be reduced one-half.
In provincial affairs the salaries of
ministers should be reduced to
��2,000 a year, with no extras, and
their deputies to ��1,500. The
members would be well paid if
they got $200 per month while the
legislature is in session, or about
$400 per annum. The agent-general office should be abolished and
the building sold. The people of
this province have to work too hard
to spend about 8100,000 a year for
even such necessaries as "Dods
Peerage" at ��45.83, tickets to the
Royal Horticultural society at ��20,
etc., etc.���Slocan Record.

Our Police Magistrate
Last year the police coart ra
Greenwood sat three or four times,
and the city paid $300 for a police
magistrate. In these days of
municipal economy tbis looks Tike
a wilful waste of public money. .
Greenwood has no more need for a
police magistrate than it bos for
an airship. The city cannot afford
to give one man $300 a year for
charity, and.the taxpayers are not
_-^ -
yet ready to establish a pension
fund. I. H. Hallett, the present
magistrate, is extremely unpopular, owing feo .the vindictiveness
of bis nature. He is also disloyal
towards some of the local institutions of the city," and tbe people
hate a man who knocks his own *
town, especially when they are
taxed to pay his salary. The
council and the people do not want
this individual as police magistrate, bat the government only cttn
discharge him. This is a pretty
state of affairs, and if the Bowser
government does not soon provftte
a remedy, ife will lose many votes
at the next election. Ife is seMota
fehat any legal fines are to be collected in Greenwood, and tbe it-
pense of a salaried, magistrate
should be immediately cut off.

"The body of an innocent tfBild,
floating dead on the water, the
victim of destruction of an unarmed vessel, is to me a more
poignant and a moire tragic spectacle than an unsold bale of cotton."" u '���""r" ���7~"���- ���������
That in a nutshell is the reply
of an American Senator to Secretary Lansing's note to Great Britain on British interference with
United States ships. The Amertc-
ane knew well that prevention of
the shipping of their cotton has
the same grounds as the confiscation of fehe export of high explosives to Germany. Cotton is only
ammunition in tbe raw and every
bale means the potential loss of
British lives, yet with some Americans that fact counts for notiusg
when sent against tbe low joi profits. Even when Bet against the
loss of American lives, it counts
for hardly more, but the stinging
and eloquent rebuke of Senator
Lodge proves at least that all
Americans are not tarred with the
same brush. It is the first prerogative of a great nation to see to
it that the lives, even more than,
the'property, of its nationals are
respected. The long series of outrages from tbe torpedoing ot the
William P. Frye to the Lositania
indicated a singular ioertttese on
the part of the States to resentment. It will be more than
strange if tbe delaying or roafcea-
tion of a few cargoes of cotton
should now rouse them.to s long
overdue wrath.���Beck's Weekly.

Two Faithful Goats
Thomas Mullen, of New York,
contributes this remarkable anecdote to a recent issue of The Times
of that city:
I cannot think of a time in my
life when the affection of a dumb
animal was more clearly exemplified than iu an experience with
two ordinary goats which had been
around my stable for some time.
Last Sunday I called at the stable
and in making my visit to the
horse floor I became faint and fell
to the floor, where I lay for at
least five minutes, when I was revived by the two goats, Beilly and
Minnie, licking my face. I sat up
thinking no one was around, when
I saw two of my men looking at
me. When I asked them why
they allowed me to lie on the floor
I was told that Beilly, the goat
with the long horns, held them off
and stood over ms like a sentinel.
In this instance the goats displayed more knowledge than the men.

Blanc are at work. Nothing new.

The Flint mine, owned by J. A.
Carter, was named after Flint,

Putting two and two together
and from information that can be
gathered on the side, it does not
appear likely that the Consolidated
Co's. zinc plant at Trail will be
able to take care of custom ore
once it is in operation. It is considered likely that the company
will handle the complex ore from
its own mines in preference to that
of independent shippers.
Charles F. Caldwell who has the
Bell, U. S. and other properties up
the Jackson basin under lease and
bond, is asking for tenders for the
rawhiding of zinc ore from the
Bell to Retallack. Tbe road into
the basin has been opened up as
far as Jackson mill, the men fighting their way through six feet of
snow, and it is intended to,keep a
rawhide trail open this winter from
the Bell mine, over which fifty to
one hundred tons of zinc ore per
month will be shipped. With an
increase in the crew by next summer on these properties, an increase iu out put is anticipated ���

The establishment of the Soldiers' Aid Commission for Ontario,
of which the Secretary is Mr. C. N.
Cochrane, Parliament Building,
Toronto., is the first result of the
report recently issued by the Hospitals Commission, and the forerunner of others.
The care of the soldier who has
returned to Canada, mutilated or
weakened as a result of active service, is the prime duty of Canadians. For some months the Canadian Patriotic Fund has been en-
deavoring to insure that the men
already back from Europe should
suffer no want. This work has
been voluntarily undertaken by
local committees of the Fund, although in most instances their
time is fully occupied with the
task of making provision for the
families of soldiers.
Each soldier is interviewed at
Quebec by a representative of the
Fund and a confidential report
sent by the latter to the patriotic
committee of the town to which
the soldier is going. This serves
the two-fold purpose _f protecting
the Fund against the greedy or unscrupulous and of giving the local
committee information that is helpful in finding employment for the
deserving. Not every man who
leturns to Canada wearing His
Majesty's uniform is included in
the latter category, but the greater
majority have done their doty in
the fuile&t degree. To the latter
it has been the privilege of the
Fund to present a small badge
bearing the words, "For service at
the Front." The men who are
wearing these badges are the
worthiest citizens that we can acknowledge. Like charity, that
badge should be allowed to cover
a multitude of sins.
The work that the Canadian
Patriotic Fund can do for returned
Foldiers, however, is limited by
Act of Parliament, and it has been
specially enacted that no assistance
<.;.n be given by the Fund to "any
person who is in receipt of any

A Wonderful Old Man
November 10, 1793, died at Beau
maris, William Lewis, Esq., of
Llandisman, in the act of drinking
a cup of Welsh ale, containing
about a wine quart called tumbler
maur. He made it a rule every
morning of his life, to read so
many chapters of the Bible, and in
the evening to drink eight gallons
of ale. It is calculated that in his
life-time he must have drunk a
sufficient quantity to float a seventy
four gun ship. His size was astonishing and he weighed forty stone.
Although he died in his parlor, it
waB found necessary to construct a
machine in the form of a crane to
lift his body on a carriage, and
afterwards to have the machine in
the church-yard to let him down
into the grave.

Mining on Cherry Creek
A year ago there was very active development going on at
Cherry Creek in the Okanagan district, and the work was suddenly
suspended for no apparent reason.
Dr. Elftman, who was in charge of
the work, was injured by being
struck by lightning when at the
mine, and had to return tD bis
home in Wisconsin. Meantime
the owners had the property examined by an American engineer,
whose sampling failed to show
values and tbe work was ordered
shut down. Dr. Elftman bas now

since he left.
It is a certainty that the property in question has merit and tha
the upper ore bodies carry payable
values. The writer has seen here
some of the richest gold-bearing
quartz in the country. The deposit
is similar in character to that at
Hedley, and the aera is a most
promising one. The low level
tunnel was driven for about 800
feet and gives about 300 feet depth
on the vein, but probably there is
some doubt as to whether the vein
itself has been sufficiently devel-
at that depth to prove any-

When Charles I. was King of
England a country girl came to
London in search of a situation,
and applied for the position of
"tub woman," or carrier of beer,
at a brew house. The brewer,
struck by her good looks, married
her. In a short time he died,
leaving her a large fortune. She
gave up the brewery and for the
proper settlement of her husband's
affairs was recommended to Mr.
Hyde, a rising young barrister,
whom she afterwards married.
This gentleman ultimately became
Earl of Clarendon and from his
marriage with her he had one
daughter, who became the wife of
James II., and mother of Mary
and Anne, both subsequently
Queens of England.
