Late Clayton Casselman
The sad news of the death of
Clayton Casselman by drowning,
has lately been confirmed iu a letter from tlie government agent at
Prince Rupert, B.C., to his brother
J. C. Casselman, of Boundary
Falls. The first news to reach his
relatives here of the unhappy occurence, was conveyed in a letter
written b}r Andy Shields, and
which was later confirmed by the
agent at'Prince Rupert, to tho effect that on October first of thiH
year, "Casselman" whilst n��i his
way to Prince Kupert, fell from a
launch and was drowned in the
waters of the' Skeena River. A
most sorrowful act of bravery was
performed by an Indian, who, also
lost, his life by jumping overboard
to the rescue, and knowing the
dangerous nature of tho river at
the time.
Clayton Casselman was well
known in the Boundary district,
having been employed as black
smith for a number of years at the
old Dominion Copper Co., at
Boundary Falls, where lie made
many friends amongst the smelter-
men. Besides leaving a number of
brothers and sisters to ; mourn his
untimely death, the. saddest of all
all will be his aged mother and
father who are old settler's of the
TJ. E. Loyalist stock, of Dundas
county, Ontario.

A proposal to hold a public
Christmas Tree for all the children of the city is to be discussed

and all women of the city are
cordially invited to attend, to
assist in making arrangements.
It is desired to make the treat
non-sectarian and all interested
iu children are requested to be
present.
The gratifying announcement
has been made that tbe Granby
smel'ter at Grand Forks and the
mines at Phoenix are to resume
operations this week, and preparations are now under way with
this object in view. The men
have agreed to accept a reduction
in wages of 25 per cent until the
price of copper advances, believing, no doubt, that half a loaf is
better than none at all. The
whole Boundary will be benefited
and we believe it will not be long
ere business will again be booming.
We notice that people attending a public entertainment iu the
hall have no hesitoncy in taking
j front seats, in fact there is a gen-
jeral rush for them, and usually
j'pav a higher price for the privii-
jege. We also notice in church
i the custom is  right   the  reverse,.
Heaven help the man who imagines he can dodge enemies by
trying to please everybody. If
such an individual ever succeeded
we should be glad of it���not that
we believe in a man going
through the world trying to find
beams to knock and thump his
poor head against, disputing
every man's opinion,, fighting and
elbowing, and crowding all who
differ from him. That again is
another extreme. Other people
have a right to their opinion, so'
have you; dont fall into the error
of supposing they will respect you
less for maintaining it, or re-
spect youL���more^fpr_. lurning yo���ur
coat every day to match the color
of theirs. Wear your own colors
in spite of wind or weather,
storm or sunshine. It costs the
vacillating and irresolute ten
times the trouble to wind and
shuffle and twist, that it does
honest, manly independence to
stand its ground.

We do not think people in Toronto or other places within easy
reach of the United States, border
feel at all uneasy regarding raids
from Germans there. The secret
service men of both countries are
j watching for possible developments
and any suspicious gathering
would soon get to the ears of the
American authorities.
British naval losses in the war
do not amount to more than five
thousand men. The army has lost
to date about seventy-five thousand men. Britain's power on the
sea is a safeguard for the lives of
the men in the navy.
General von Stenger is badly
wounded. Stenger is the general
who ordered that no prisoners be
taken. All British or French captured must be "disposed of."
The movement "on to Paris" is
is now under way, but it is by the
French government at Bordeaux.
The delusion that the abolition
of armament means the abolition
of war is now voiced by President
Jordan, the eminent educator. It
is pointed out that in 1861 the
United. States was practically without armament, and yet there followed the most destructive civil
war iu history.
Nobody with the exception of a
few deluded South Americans supposes that the Munroe , doctrine

hemisphere that violates neutrality.
Nor will the sentimeDt of the people of the United States support
any South American country in

The question of the duration of
the war is now being decided in
Poland. If the Russians succeed
in driving back the Germans sorties toward Warsaw, they will be
able to press so powerfully on the

season will range from $200,000 to
$250,000. Hamshaw will have 30
men working this winter, and
there probably will be 150 to 200
men in the camp. It is expected
that the benches will be prospected
thoroughly. The pay on No. 1
Skookum ran as high as $93 a pan,
and out of nine pans the lowest
was $43. Of course, such was not
the average.
"The best pay averaged four ft.
wide, while in places it was 1G ft.
wide. The paystreak seemed to
run straight back along the gulch.
Some think it will turn south into
the hill.
"I expect to be here until the
the river freezes, and then to go
back' to gChisa_ia. I believe the
road houses along the Dawsou-Chis-
ana trail by way of White River
will be open at most places. I
know they are trying to keep open
at the Boundary, Snag, Horsefelt,
Mouth-O-White and even not open
the cabins will bo there, affording
good shelter.''

It is a well known fact that the
Allies in Flanders are receiving a
lot of plum puddings. This is
highly contraband of war, and may
cause a serious loss of life. The
Germans value plum puddings
more than they do the "Iron Cross"
and will make every effort to capture the cache before Chrirtmae.
At last they have something worth
fighting for.
When the old farmer remarked:
"I see where the allies have attacked fehe Germans in the flank,"
his wife who was sitting by knitting
replied; "I'm glad of it. I alios
did say that the kaiser needed a
good spanking."
"I heard him behind tbe door
pleading for just one. They must
be engaged."
"Naw, they're just married. It
was a dollar he was pleading for."
"Jimmy, yer missed it not seein'
de game dis afternoon." "De boss
wouldn't let me off." Why didn't
yer work tha old gag on him?"
"'Cause I'm savin up my grandmother for one of the decidin'
games in the fall."
Brann on War.
About 20 years ago Brann wrote
the following about war:���
Unless all signs fail, the world is
on the eve of a war such as was
never known in all the mighty
cycles of human history. Lucky
indeed will it be if the 20th contury
is not born amid the shock of universal battle. Is our boasted civilization breaking down beneath its
own ponderous weight���the rotting
props aud pillars unable to sustain
the gilded roof? Are the prophecies of Scripture about to be fulfilled���the world rushing headlong
to the final catastrophe? A mur-
derouB mania hath everywhere
seized upon the minds of men. The
pulse of the race is beating the reveille; the soul of the world is
sounding "boots and saddles."
Savagery is reasserting itself���the
Christian nations are further than
ever before from that age of gold.
Peace? There is no peace���war
is inevitable. The ostrich may
avoid seeing the approach of the
fierce simoon by hiding his head in
tho Band, but can not stay its onward march. The craze for slaughter, the lust for blood, is abroad iu
the land. The stars are evil, and
Ate, ranging hot from hell, plants
her burning feet on every brow.
For years the brute passions of
man have had no outlet���a prolonged peace hath become that
good oiistom which doth corrupt,
the world. A new generation hath
arisen in Europe and America
which knows naught of th<$ horrors
of war, but is intoxicated by its
glory. Its superfluous energy
must find expression, its pent up
passions are ready for explosion.
It is all aweary these piping times
of peace���wildly eager for the glorious pomp and circumstance of
war.���the bullet's mad hiss aud
the crash of steel. Civilized man
is but an educated savage���sooner
or later his natural ferocity will
demand its pound of flesh.
Swam too Long.
The attorneys for the prosecution and defense had been allowed
fifteen minutes each to argue the
case. The attorney for the defense
had ���commenced his argument with
an allusion to the swimming hole
of his boyhood days. He told in
flowery oratory of the balmy air,
the singing birds, the joy of youth,
the delights of the cool water. And
in the midst of ife he was interrupted by the drawling voice of the
judge. "Come out, Chawncy," he
said, "and put on your clothes.
Your fifteeu minutes are up."
The mail order house does the
business because it tells the people
what it has to sell and what price
it asks. The local merchant who
does not advertise simply takes
chances on an occasional call for
certain goods. In the meantime
the mail order house gets the business. Advertise in your local paper and prosper.
Willie���Paw, is a drawing room
a place where the artist works?
Paw���No. my son.    A drawing
room is the space partitioned off in
a dentists's office.
To man, money is like a train
running through a tunnel. Itgoes
in at one end and out at the other
and leaves nothing.
