Editor The Ledge:���
Dear Sir;���
Allow me please through the
Ledge to thank the many friends
in Midway for their kindness to
me in my trouble of the last few
weeks. I am leaving Midway,
not on account of the ridiculous
agreement signed by myself that
I would leaver but to take up a
lucrative position. Had there
been any means of getting a living I'certainlv would have stayed. I hope in the near future to
be able to show my many friends
here that their confidence was
not misplaced. Thanking you
in anticipation for inserting this
believe me to remain.
Respectfully yours.

The loneliest road in Ireland
runs from Minna to Cosfeello along
the shore of Galway Bay. It is
sheer moor, quite treeless and
bleak beyond words. Hardly a
stone cabin in Bight, and no path
but straight railro-d. More sterile
than Donegal, more pitiful than
Clare, the strange network of grey
land and grey waters constitutes
the country of Lar Connach. In
the heart of this Irish wilderness a
solitary lodge shows white against
its surrounding patch of green.

Thinking Themes
I have met few persons who are
tolerant through and through. A
free-thinker who willingly allows
everybody else to think freely is a
rare bird.
We have all of us the itch to
proselyte. Even our so-called
firmness of principle is oftentimes
no more than a stubborn intolerance of the principles of others.
Of all hospitalities the sweetest
and most comfortable to meet is
hospitality of mind, that generous
spirit which allows any man's
opinion, no matter how strange
and repugnant to us, to come in
and sit awhile as a guest among
our thoughts, and to be treated
courteously, even if pretty soon
we must beg to be excused and
send it away with  God's blessing.
Most of our minds are as if they
were our private parks, into which
no one is admitted who is not an
acquaintance or who does not
carry a note of recommendation.
Few minds are public, open,
courteous to all and fearful to
There are few democrats of
thought. "We may be so bent on
making proselytes to free-thinking," says Hazlitt, "as to allow no
one to think freely but ourselves.

While in   Chihuahua I visited
the smelter of tho American Smelting & Eefining Company,  on  the
outskirts of the  city.    Scores   of
peons are employed here,  and  a
high-salaried   white   employee   of
the company told m* that their
average  wage  was a peso and a

30 cents gold afe present,  as the

successful    termination    of   tbe
revolution,  as ife would mean the
formation of labor unions and the
consequence rise in wages.    Several American  wholesale employers of peon labor in Mexico frank-
admit that th��y prefer ten years of
anarchy followed by "the good old
days of peon labor" feo intervention
of any kind which would mean the
restoration   of peace  and   higher

It is such men who frequently
pay as low wages as 75 cents
"Mex." per diem, and it was they
who flimflammed their employees
wifeh all sorts of '-hospital taxes"
and other devices ior reducing

the country. It is they and their
ilk, too, who have justified a good
deal of the universal hatred for
Americans in Mexico.
This hatred, always smouldering, glowed red hot when the news
of fehe conflict between the United
States and Huerta filtered into
Northern Mexico. At first it was
confined to dark glances- and mut

Advertising Tip
John Wannamaker, the New
York and Philadelphia retail merchant, on one occasion said: If
there is on earth anything that a
quitter should leave alone, it is
advertising. To make a success
one must be prepared to stick to
it, like a barnacle on a ship's bottom. Advertising doesn't jerk;
it pulls. It begins very gently at
first, but the pull is steady. It is
likened to a team pulling a heavy
load. A. thousand spasmodic,
jerky pulls will not budge that
load, while one half the power in

Where Cats are Wanted.
(Windsor Hotel
The cat iB a valued subject in the
domains of Mulai Hafid, the Sultan
of Morocco. Says a writer in The
Animal World: When that monarch succeeded to the Sultanate he
found the sacred city of Fez infested by rats. Without any Iobs of
time he nationalized all the cats of
Morocco and issued a command
that many thousands of them
should be marched into Fez for service. For sometime a law has existed in Hong Kong making it compulsory to keep cats in every house
the "umber varying according to
the size of the house. Only a short
time back the governor of the German colony of Togo issued an order
for cats to be kept in all hospitals,
schools and prisons.

Canadian men are good workers. They see their wives
and children but little except at the table. That seems to
be about the only family gathering. What a spectacle is
the common management of these family meetings!
The father sits in glum silence, and shovels in as fast ias
he'ean swallow. The children follow the parental example.
The food is passed only when asked for, and is then passed
in silence.
There is nothing human about it. We cannot see in
what essential particular it differs fvom a group of pigs
gathered about a trough.
If these gatherings are rightly managed; if the experiences of the children in their schools were lovingly called out
by parental inxerest; if such news as the parents had picked up since the last meeting were told���if this were the
scene at the table three times a day it would grow by what
it feeds. The table meeting would be more attractive to
the small people. The parents would grow into a loving
oneness with their children. It would in truth prove the
greatest blessing to every member of the group, and in the
long run would contribute more to the physical, intellectual, social and moral development of the young people than
any other agency can name.

That a modern bucket dredge,
similar to those used in the Yukon,
v/hich will cut into bed rock, will
this sam_aer be operated on the
Lardo river at Goldhill, is the
seatement of J, M. Wolbert of
Spokane, who is ia the city. Mr.
Wolbert represents Spokane, Nelson and Kaslo capitalists who are
undertaking the placer proposition
at Goldhill.
Mr. Wolbert says that the property in which he is interested is
remarkably rich and pays from the
top. The formation he say is the
name as that of the richest properties in Alaska and a shaft which
has been sunk on the surface has
shown wonderful results. Other
shafts will bo sunk and the property will be thoroughly tested to
bedrock. The dredge will cost
from 8125,000 to $175,000, but as
the railway track runs over the
bar the cost of installing will be
comparatively light, although
single pieces will weigh as much as
20 tons.
A Philadelphia outfit is working
on the Lardo river at Goldhill,
says Mr. Wolbert, with satisfactory
reaults. A drag dredge is being
used and values of 75 cents a yard
are being obtained at 12 and 15
feet depth. Mr. Wolbert's pro-
erty is far richer he says.
Mr. Wolbert is going into the
Lardeau, Trout lake and Camborne
districts to inspect other mining
properties on behalf of his principals. He hopes to be able to
persuade Professor J. C. Garvin of
Spokane, one of the foremost geologists of the United States, to look
over the country and deliver lectures. The natural resources of
the country are simply wonderful,
he says, and he does not think
that they are appreciated by those
who are living in the country.���
KevelBtoke Mail-Herald.
To the Editor of The Ledge.
Eeferring to our conversation
on the mining outlook of Southern
British Columbia, I think a slight
description of the existing conditions at Camp McKinney may be
of interest.
Camp McKinney is situated on
the headwaters of Bock Creek in
the foothills of Mt. Baldy and
some 4,500 ft. above sea level.
The first locations were made there
by Messrs. Rice, McKinney and
others in 1887, when the old Cariboo was staked and during its
career of ten years produced over
$1,500,000. For some years no
work has been done in this part of
the camp where are situated, in
addition to the Cariboo Co.'s properties, the Waterloo and Sailor
groups, equipped with ten stamp
mills and all necessary mining
machinery, but unfortunately daring these years while the camp has
been deserted, it has been raided
by a gang of thieves who have dismantled not only the mills but
private residences of everything
movable or worth moving, giving
the old camp a forlorn appearance.
The history of the Cariboo mine
is in a great measure the history of
Camp McKinney, it being its great
producer, though the adjoining
property the Waterloo had equally
as rich ore but not to such an extent. When the Cariboo closed
down in 1903, I asked the superintendent did he consider the prop*
erty worked out? Not by any
means he replied, but my interests
take me elsewhere. That there
are large bodies of ore in the
Cariboo is well known* to those intimate with the property, but en*
should prove a paying proposition.
The Waterloo to the east of thn
Cariboo on the same vein,  closed
down in 1904.    During the time
the mill was running some $40,-
000 were taken out and  doubtless
this portion of the Co.'s property
pretty well  worked out,  but the
shaft on the Waterloo gave access
to the Fontenoy,  one of the Co.'s
claims   on   the   east,   which had
scarcely been touched and   from
which good samples had been obtained.
The Sailor group, owned principally in Toronto, was closed
down before the Cariboo. The ten
stamp mills with which it is equipped being almost new. Though
these groups constitute the main
portion of the upper camp, there
were many claims in the vicinity
owned by. individuals which possibly would have continued working, but the closing clown of the
big companies but the lid on the
camp. I may mention at the present time Mr. Cbas. Ostenberg, who
built the Cariboo mill in '96, is
engaged in sampling the tailings
from the mill, of which there are
several thousand tons, with a view
to treatment.
Some four miles easterly from
the Cariboo and situated on the
North Fork of Rock creek are the
Victoria group of claims, the Old
England, the Snowdon, Ophir,
Gold Standard, etc. The Victoria
is the oldest recorded claim in the
district, I having recorded it for
the locators in '84, at the same
time sending a picked sample of
ore to the Selby Smelting Works,
San Francisco, which assays $480
to the ton in gold and silver. The
property which is now owned by a
Victoria Co., shipped considerable ore to the Tacoma smelter,
but cost of transportation was very
high in those times aud though the
ore ran well it was hardly good
business. No work has been done
on these claims for years, though
now railway communication is
within seven or eight miles of the
mine and a good wagon road connecting with the V. V. &E. station at Bridesville. There is a
little doubt in my mind that some
'day this group of properties will be
profitably worked as the mineral is
there as also the facilities for
working, a good water power and
transportation inexpensive.
About 1�� miles from the Victoria, on the hog's back between
the North and South Forks of
Rock creek, the Dayton claim
owned by Messrs. Hamilton and
Younkin is situated. This property has been considerably developed and many promising showings
of free gold made���at present a
car load of ore is being taken out
and from assays made the owners
are expecting a good return.
A little below the Dayton is the
Le Roi, owned by J. Copland, this
claim has quite a local reputation
and is looked upon as the key to
several of the surrounding properties.
Having resided in McKinney for
so many years I may claim to be
imtimately connected with its history, its successes and its failures
and I have almost invaribly seen
success attend intelligent efforts
while failures have been largely due
to mismanagement.

At Cobalt, Ontario, tlie Social
ists passed a resolution, protesting j
against the organization of a regiment of soldiers in thafe district.
A copy of the resolution was sent
to Colonel Sam Hughes, and the
following is his reply:
A copy of your manifesto, attached to a letter from you, has
reached me.
There is nothing new in the
manifesto. Ife is brim full of the
usual slop and the silly vaporing
of minds ill-formed in the problem
of human government;.
The idea of an institution whost.
practices are, by many regarded as
those of the thug, tho assassin, the
midnight murderer, the hedge-
fence artist, the dynamiter, the
persecutor of innocent women and
children, the destroyer of homes
and of business industries���talking
of "humanity" and "progress"
and deploring "bloodshed" would
be laughable, were it not so serious.
The whole resolution stamps
your society as dangerous to the
best interests of humanity in general, and inimical to any advantage whatever to your own organization.
You talk of "Civil War."
What, pray, do you indulge in iu
your attempts to thwart the even
trend of the business of the conntry if not in miniature civil war?
What knowledge have you of
human government, or of anything
else for thafe matter, thafe would
justify anyone in paying the slightest attention to anything yon
might say in this regard;
However, "while the lamp holds
out to burn," etc., so I have such
faith in humanity, unless it has
fallen too low and I hope you have
nofe reached that sphere as to justify the hope thafe if you were to
honestly study the principles underlining my Militia aud Cadet
ideas, that you would turn from
your past records and adopt the
only policy that ever yet has produced or ever will produce a proper
system of human government,
government by the people through
the people and for the people, and
not a government; by ciiques, rings
and organizers such as yours and
others eqnally dangerous to humanity.
Indeed I feel satisfied, unless
you are too low and case hardened too depraved, that you could
be greatly benefitted by joining
the militia aud subjecting yourself to the essential principles of
learning to obey and, also, of
learning to command, You
would then be a better workman,
but perhaps you are merely a
walking boss living on the labor
of other men.
However, whether with or
without vour eudorsatipn there
will be a splendid regiment in
the old Timiskaming district, and
law and order and human progress will continue when you
have departed and are fprgotten.
"While the oil excitement in
Calgary has brought in au immense
amount of outside capital and attracted several thousand persons,
it is paralyzing ail the business of
the city except the hotels, restaurant, saloon and cigar store trade,"
said William Evans, a Chicago
traveling man, who was at the
New Madison yasterday.
"Practically all lines of merchandizing, except the haberdasheries, are afe a standstill, and merchants generally are doing little
but watch the oil stock rush. They
are not complaining, however, as
most of them are in the oil game
themselves and have visions of
making fortunes in a few months
that will enable them to retire

sudden influx, fully 10,000 persons

estimate, and the result is that
part of them are compelled to
walk the street nights, waiting until fehe other fellow gets out of bed.

White  Pine Lumber Co. to Build Large Sawmill at
Jas. E. Martz, president of the
White Pine Lumber Supply Co.,
a Spokane corporation, passed
through here Tuesday on his way
to Westbridge, B.C., on the C. P.
railway about thirty miles north
of here, to locate the site of a
large sawmill and set a force of
men to work getting out timbers
for the foundation and frame work.
The company has purchased 25,-
000 acres of heavy timberland from
the C. P. railroad situated on
Kettle river and itB west fork.
The mill will have a capacity of
200,000 board feet per twenty-four
hours, and tbe company expects to
employ 250 to 300 men when in
full blast.
A townsite will be platted,  and
construction of houses to house tbe
employees begun at once, and it is
expected that the town will contain at least 1,000 inhabitants
when the mill is running.
The planfe will be of the most
modern design and donkey engines,
auto trucks and horses will be
used in its logging operations.
Tbe mill will be the largest enterprise in this section and will
create a good market for hay,
grain and other farm products of
the Molson country. ��� Molson
Not so Slow
A shy young man had been
calling on the sweetest girl in the
world for many moons, but being
bashful, his suit progressed slowly.
Finally she decided it was up to
her to start something, so the next
time he called she pointed to the
rose in his buttonhole and said,
"I give you a kiss for that rose."
A crimson flush overspread his
countenance, but the exchange was
made after some hesitation on his
part. Then he grabbed his hat
and started to leave the room.
"Why, where are yon going?"
she asked in surprise.
"To the���er���florist for more
roses," he called from the front

Dog's Mistaken Fidelity
A strange case in which a faithful wolf-hound accidentally injured his master and then mis-
feakenly prevented any assistance
being rendered to him is, says the
Standard of Empire, reported from
the Thames Valley. The owner of
the dog was Mr. Ware, husband of
the actress and writer, Mrs. Netty
Ware. Mr. Ware was out walking, when the dog twisted the leading strap round hiB masters leg
and gave him a violent fall. Some
time later the unfortunate man
was seen lying unconscious on the
ground, the dog guarding him.
Several people made attempts to
go to the assistance of Mr.;; Ware,
whose identity was- unknown, but
the dog fiercely-resisted all efforts
to'../heIp\i-.himi;-''-:W-ien at last the
injured man was recognized, and
Mrs. Ware was sent for to call the
dog from her prostrate husband, it
was too late to save Mr. Ware's life,
and he died.
Dogs as Food
A German newspaper has recently published an article which,
says a German correspondent, was
nothing more or less than a defense
of the consumption of dog flesh.
After declaring that the habit of
eating dogs was indulged in many
centuries ago, the writer goes on to
explain that even at present
man's best Mend" is considered a
delicacy by some nations.
The Chinese and Tartars keep
targe studs for the table, and this
culinary expert has discovered a
[ race of dogs on the island of Formosa, which, in his opinion, would
satisfy the most fastidious gourmet,
in fact, he attributes to them the
tasfee of a well roasted sucking pig.
Then he tells the tale of a beautiful fox terrier, which had won
prizes at many shows, presented to
the late Li Hung Chang by a relative of General Gordon, on whose
grave at Kartoum the famous viceroy had placed a wreath. The
donor was not a little astonished to
receive a letter from Li thanking
him for the gift, and saying that,
now he was Europeanized, he had
given up eating dogs, but that his
entourage had greatly enjoyed the
dainfey dish.
After this preamble about the
customs in distant lands, this doggie expert gets nearer home, and
takes the bull by the horns with a
a vengeance. In Germany he says
dog flesh has been permitted to be
sold as an article of food since 1900.
In the following year a dog butcher
established himself in Dessau. In
1896 Saxony consumed a little over
four hundred dogs on the sly; hut
five years later over two thousand
five hundred, and in 1909 no less
than fifty thousand, were eaten
openly in the same locality. They
still call it the "sad meal."���The

Proof Positive
Way down in Florida two darkies were discussing the color of
certain Biblical personages. One
of them asserted that as Palestine
was about in line with Africa, the
people all must have been colored.

the speaker,;,"St. Peter an' St.
Paul an' the rest of the apostle-
was as white as that North'rn
gen'l'man ober dere."
"No, Bah," said the man in
opposition, "Panl may ha' been,
but St. Peter-ao sh. St. Peter
was a culer'd gen'l'man."
"You're wrong,- fop if St Peter'd
