"A Pink Tea"
For the first time in many moons
there was held last Thursday in
the police court, that old time
ceremony, locally known as Hal-
'efcs "pink teas," Eighteen blushing victims of the double standard
trooped up the hill and filled the
justice mill to overflowing. It was
a gala day and a flash of .old times.
Unabashed by beauty, perfumery
or tbe rustling of silks Judge Hallet fined all the contingent, or five
and ten days." But' why" this
awakening from"a" Rip Van Winkle
sleep?-Why this revival- of an
ancient local "social" function,
after such a long period of silence?
Oh, Judge! Why have you done
this? You are now in fehe limelight and the world wants an explanation. It will' not be necessary for you feo send your explanation to au outside paper, as The
Ledge will willingly print' it for
you, without charging you a cent.
The Vital Consideration
The vital question is not���
whether drinking wine or eating
strawberries is harmful; or whether
it produces poverty or riches.morality or immorality. It is not even
a question of whether prohibition
prohibits. There is really one
transcendant question: It is whether we shall confer upon the state
the authority to invade our private
lives, to cross the threshold of our
homes, and there, by force and
coercion, dictate and control our
conduct.
Prohibition is an insidious attack upon tbe dignity of the individual. Garbed in the^vestments
of religion and professing its love
for mankind, prohibition is an
assassin aiming a death blow at
liberty. Professional 'prohibitionists and paid reformers may sneer
at liberty, nevertheless it is tbe
one thing for which the race has
struggled longest and suffered
most.  .-.���������������'        ;;-'V:'v ���
You can not make man moral
and upright or woman virtuous
by legislation; aud if you could, I
for one. would rather straggle and
Fail as a free man than be upright
and virtuous and compelled to say
that my virtue is the product of
tbe state legislature.
Liberty has its perils, and life
has its perils also. The only way
to keep a man absolutely free from:
danger is-to lock him up or kill
him. The penitentiary and the
cemetery are model communities
where men are absolutely safe.���

Many a good  political pot has
been spoiled by too many grafters.
The majority of people would
feel better, if tbey would eat Iobs,
iind breathe more.
The newspapers will soon be
printing a list of casualities from
the hole in the ice.
of Btoves or pipes cannot start a
fire. A sound stove properly
placed and protected cannot burn
a house by being overheated.
Boxes crates, cartons, and paper
are sometimes allowed to accumulate in basements of stores during
summer and similar inflammable
matter is often found in basements
of dwellings. The furnace is started in a hurry without cleaning-up.
Cleaniug-up should be done in
eood time, before the furnace is
started, so that sparks from the
furnace or hot cinders accidentally
dropped may not sfearfe a fire. All
such inflammable material assists
fire to spread rapidly.
Do nob hang papers or clothes
on the wall behind the stove-pipe.
See that clothing which is being
dried is so placed thafe ib cannot be
ignited. Fires caused by papers
clothes, or firewood lefb too near
stoves are frequent.
Do not dry wood in the stove.
Keep the wood-box wbere sparks
cannot fall into it.
The fire loss in our municipalities during last winter from causes
above referred to was abont one-
Bfth of total loss reported.
Bond Red Rose Mine
In Canada fehis winter eome men
will not light the fire in the morn-
iDg, except through conscription.
It is about time to start a
movement; feo prohibit the use
of tea, .coffee and meat. The
abuse of these things cause equally
as much misery as the abuse of
liquor. The meat and condiment
eating habits of the people is que
of the great causes of booze drinking-	
The honest and outspoken editor
always meets with opposition from
rogues, rascals and shysters.
Human misfits of any kind always
shout and seeks sympathy from
his kind, when some virile, and
fearless editor tears off his mask
and exposes his true complexion to
tho gaze of an indignant world.
Some of the press censors in
Europe are being called down severely, for the manner in which they
use the blue pencil. Do not be too
harsh on these poor fellows. They
are only human after all, alfehough
some of them think fchey are gods.
A real editor is. about the only
man who can handle a blue pencil,
without marking the  entire proof.
The common sunflower is coming to the front.   Sunflower seeds
are now being used feo make an oil
thafe is equal to olive oil for cooking purposes.   After making the oil
the refuse fehat is left makes excellent food for animals. The seeds can
also be roasted and used as a'sub-
.stibute for coffee. When cooked the
young   shoots    and   undeveloped
leaves   make   a   dish   resembling
spinach.    Ife has also been recently
discovered iu Belgium that: tea can
be made from   the tender  ball--'
grown leaves of the raspberry and
'blackberry plants.   This tea does
: not rack fehe nerves like the real
tiling'from China.   If these discoveries keep up no doubt before
long tobacco will have a competition in cabbage leaves, and coffee
may be sidetracked  by   the   red
bean or roasted wheat.
Fire Prevention
Ashes placed against wood Or iu
wooden boxes or barrels, defective
chimneys, fireplaces, stoves, foT-
11 ices, or pipes, overheated stoves,
figure prominently in the Hat of
causes of fall and winter fires.
Such fires are, in the majority of
cises, caused in reality by some
one's carlessuess. Furnaces and
stove? are put into use without inspection or without proper protection. No provision is made for
ashes or for the removal of rubbish
ia which sparks may alight aud
ciuse fires.
Ashes should not be placed
ajaiusfe wooden walls or in wooden
receptacles��� metal receptacles
should be cleax of all wood.
Before the cold weather sets in
see that chimneys, fireplaces,
stoves, furnaces^ and pip�� are in
good order, and that the la*ter are
properly supported. See that
flours, walls, and ceilings are prop-;
erly protected so that overheating

bad hazard  until   the  middle   of
May, when until Jshe end of July
heavy rains safe guarded the situation.    "With the advent in August
of dry weather, the vegetation rapidly became    parched,   and   fires
started to give trouble;  but these
conditions improved as the nights
became cooler,  and an   early   in
September rain pub an  end to all
danger.     Seventy-fewo    outbreaks
of fire during the season,   with but
slight loss, are recorded, and mention is made of fehe increasing interest shown by fehe public in forest protection.    Much clearing was
done by settlers under permit, the
season    proving   very    favorable.
The opinion is expressed  that tbe
lumber industry,   in  view  of the
conditions,  has  shown  wonderful
activity.    Thirteen mills have been
running fairly regularly;  those  in
the Okanagan supplying boxes and
crates for the fruib  trade,  as a result of which employment has been
given, and the  machinery kept going.     Approximately   three hundred meu have been employed  at
the mills, aud a somewhat smaller
.number    in    logging   operations.
Orders for several million  feet  61
fir for snowsheds on tbe Coquihalla
branch of the Kefeble   Valley railway has been given.
Tho whole district has benefitted'
by the operations of the Kettle
Vallsy railway, and will do so to a
far greater extent as soon ao fehe
Coquihalla section is connected up
and opened, completion of which
should be made by November.
Messrs. Hogan and McAdam of
Edmonton, representing a syndicate, have taken a bond on the
Red Rose group on Rocher Deboule
mountain. This property is owned by CharleB Eck and was once
bonded feo a Vancouver syndicate
which fell down. The new syndicate has cleared up the old deal
and has agreed to start fehe work
on the property within 40 dayB,
which means within the next two
or three weeks. They had their
own engineer examine the group
of claims and the showings. He
reported that it was an excellent
prospect and worthy of development.
The Silver Standard mining
company has shipped to date four
cars of ore to the Trail smelter.
Each car contains a little over 32
tons. The fifth car is being loaded
now and will leave the end of the
week.
Recent reports from the Babine
district, where James Cronin has a
dozen men working on a long cross
tunnel, are fehat the work is being
prosecuted rapidly and that within
the next three months the big vein
should be encountered. Iu the
past Mr. Cronin has done considerable development work, and the
showing was so encouraging that
he felt justified in this further expenditure. The tunnel will tap
the ore afe considerable depth and
the condition of the ore there will
determine whether or not the property is worthy the big expenditure
thafe has up to the present are that
it will be one of the biggest silver-
lead producers in the province.
Two gangs are working on a
winter trail out at Telkwa into the
property, and arrangements are being'made for a winter mail service
afe least once a month.
The Buccess of Cronin's property
will mean a great deal to the whole
Babine district, as it will be operated on a-large scale. There are
also a number of other very promising properties in the same district.���Omineca Herald.
Censure
Should you feel inclined to censure
Faults you may in others view,
Ask your own heart, ere you venture,
If that has no failings, too.
Let not friendly vows be broken;
Rather strive a friend to gain;
Many a word in anger spoken
Finds its passage home again.
Do not, then, in idle pleasure,
Trifle with a brothers fame;
Guard it as a valued treasure,
Sacred as your own good name.
Do not form opinions blindly;
Hastiness to trouble tends;
Tho=e of whom we thought unkindly,
Oft becomes our warmest friends.

A Sweetly Solemn Thought
How dear  to  our  hearts is the
steady subscriber
"Who pays in advance at the birth
of each year.
Who lays down his money and
does it quite gladly.
And casts 'round the office a halo
Of cheer.
He never says:   "Stop it; I cannot
afford it,
I'm getting more papers than now
I can read."
But always says,   "Send   it; our
people all like it���
In fact, we all think it a help and
a need.':
How welcome his check when it
reaches our sanctum,
How it makes our pulse throb, how
it makes-our heart dance.
Wei outwardly thank him; we inwardly bless him���
The steady subscriber that pays in
advance.
East Kootenay Mines
During the past summer a" number ol good prospects have b9en
opened, and all that is now needed
is a small amount of capital for
initial development,
Among the promising fiuds reported recently is that on the
Frances claim, owned by O. M.
Chittick and Bob Deafness four
and a half miles from Bear Creek.
A good showing in zinc has been
uncovered, and work is now progressing ou its development. Boston and New York capitalists now
have their scouts in the field picking up prospects, and next summer should see a spirited revival.
The Columbia Vally abounds in
ore deposits awaiting the prospec-
t >r and capitalists.
Among the properties that will
enter the shipping list in the near
future Is the Lead Queen, which
has several hundred tons of silver-
lead ore on the dump ready to
ship as soon as the road is completed from, N/o. 3 Creek, to the
mine,, a/di-itauce of about i2vurile8.;
The road-is being built by Burgesi
1 and Barry. The Lead Queen has
I from 2000Jo 3000 tons of ore in
Bight, all of whicb]will be broken
and shipped to smelter,
The road now being built will
permit the Isaac mine to begin
shipping. Mr. H. E. Forster of
Fii lands ranch, owner of the Isaac,
passed through Golden this week
en route to the coast, and stated to
The Star that he would soon have
out a shipment that would run
about 50 per cent, lead and carry
good values in siluer.
The Tecumeeh mine, Operated
by William Haupt, and located on
a tributary to to Horse Thief creek,
is also getting out a shipment.
These are but a few of the prospects that will soon be in the list of
shippers and having good payrolls.
