The Sandon Forwarding Co. sold six  mules to John Powers, the freighter, at  'McGuigan. The minea in that locality  are packing down considerable ore.  The application "for an injunction to  restrain the owners of the Slocan Star  mine from working on the .Rabbit Paw  ! ground has been denied by the Victoria  court, with costs against the applicants,  J. M. Harris, et al.  The Steamer Islander crashed into.an  iceberg in a heavy fog out from Tan-tallow point, .near Victoria, last Sunday  moning, and sank in- twenty minutes.  There was a large crowd on the boat,  and some 45 lives were lost.  Alex, Crawford, who was away to the  Lardeau And Okanagan districts, arrived  home on Sunday, bringing back a  pack train of 6 horses and 10 mules he  had packing for Okanagan mines. Mr.  Crawford saya the mining outlook of  the Lardeau is very bright at the  present time.  Scotty Findlay is back from the Lardeau, arriving here a few days ago. He  says that section is very quiet at the  present time, owing to the fact that the  owners of properties are just doing development and waiting for the railways  to come in', so that ore could be shipped  and supplies brought in.  The K. & S, engine ran of! the track-  on Tuesday, the switch being left open.  While the train hands were switching  the cars they left the Y open and as the  engine was moving at a good speed ran  oft'track, giving the locomotive a heavy  , jar, doing no damage except cutting the  ties. The engineer had the enjrine  wheels blocked up with wood, and after  working with full steam power managed  to get the engine on the track again,  taking about two hours to do it.  Mr. J L.

The civic election takes place on  Thursday, the 20th, for an election of  an aldermen to fill the vacancy in the  council. Monda\, the 2(jth, is nomination day.  Forest fires are now burning in many  places around the district, one of the  most serious being at the Payne, which  started some two weeks asio and has  v destroyed considerable timber since.  Another blaze was started on Four Mile  and lias done extensive damage to the  timber in that locality. The smoke  was very dense at times in the camp.  Severn! parties having lit small fires?and  made no effort to put theiii out, is what  caused all this trouble.  Win. Karr took charge of a fishing  party of about 50 people and went out  to Bear Lake to camp. ' They have been  away oyer a week. , The hook and line  and a number of musical instruments,  including the drum, were taken with  them. They all managed to have big  pow-wows in the evenings besides the  dancing. The fishermen'of the party  caught several tons of fish. When the  people ol Bear Lake saw the large tents,  they thought that Sells & Gray's circus  had come to tuw.n. ,  W. VV. Warner and E. A. Brown were  up doing some surveying on claims near  Paddy's peak on Thursday, August 15th,  when they saw asnowslide come down  from above, but to one side of them.  The snow was four or five feet deep and  several rods long, and after getting a  start from the steep place where it was  located rushed down the mountain at a  terrible rate for a quarter of a mile,  knocking down trees that Were in its  path. The snow is four feet deep  on the mountain tops, and everything  looks like winter.  J. M. Harris got word the other day  his brother was shot and killed in a  Chicago restaurant sonic days before.  It had been noticed in tho papers by  several that a man named Harris of the  initials of Mr. Harris' brother had been  killed, but Mr. Harris did not know his  brother was the unfortunate man until  he wired for particulars. Our memory  of the telegraphic item is that a lady  who took a meal at the restaurant lost  pocket book, returned to look for it,  claiming she left it there after eating.  The proprietor denied it, and the lady  persisting she did, he began to abuse  and insult her. Mr. Harris had come  a few minutes before and interfered on  the, lady's behalf to protect her from  insult, when without a moment's warning the proprietor drew a revolver and  shot him dead.  Geo. Lovatt  cars of lumber.  has   just   received, a few  A. S. Farwell, of Nelson, was in the  city on Thursday.  P. Burns shipped 500 pounds of meat  up to the American Boy.  Cranbrook is to have a mineral exhibit of the Kootenavs from September  25th to 27th.  A number of. foreigners are working  on the C. P. R. track which is undergoing repairs.  The pack trains at Sandon, McGuigan  and Three Forks are all busy freighting  supplies and ore for the mines.  The Ladies' Aid of the Methodist  church will hold an ice cream social in  the church on Friday evening next, to  begin at 7:30.  The literary meeting at the Methodist  church on Thursday evening was well  attended. An interesting debate was  the topic of the evening.  Geo. Clark whi'e working at'the Ivan-  hoe mine had his hand badly smashed,  and came down to the hospital for treatment. This .accident happened a few-  days ago.  Mrs. McKinnon, who has been away  away in the Boundary section far some  time, returned home this week. She  established a branch millinery store in  Cascade while away.  D. R. Young, director of the Similka-  meen Valley Coal Co., has just returned  from his trip to Toronto, where he closed  some deals on the company's behalf.  The work of developing the coal properties will commence within the next CO  'lays, which will be gratifying to the  Sandonites that are interested in the  same.  Miss Alice Trenery, one of Sandon's  most popular young ladies, left on  Thursday for Spokane to attend college.  Her departure will be much regretted  by the people of: Sandon, especially by  the members of the Methodist church  choir and Sabbath school, where her  services have been much appreciated.  But most of all she will be missed by  the pupils and teachers of the Public  school. .._......  The New Census.  Work With Contract Labor.  A dispatch from Baker Cit}T, Oregon,  announces the Albert Geiser, president  of the Citizens' Bank, and former owner of the Bonanza mine, has taken a  contract, to deliver 300 tons of lime rock  to the Northport smelter. Another contract given him was the quarrying of  the stone for the new converter and. refining plant to be erected by theNTorth-  p'ort Smeltine <fc Refining Co., at North-  port. A third contract was for thegrad-  ing of three miles of roadbed for the new  electric road which is being built by the  smelter company. A fourth contract is  for the extraction of 150 tons of ore per  day from the Le. Rot mine. Mr. Geiser  says he hopes that he can get the union  men of Rossland to work for him, as he  says there is no strike against him,  since when working for him as contractor they will not be working for the Le  Roi company.

The population of Canada in 1891 was  4,S33.239, an increase of 508,429 in the  ten years.-  The first bulletin of the census issued  gives the" population as above with the  explanation that the figures for a.few  districts being incomplete, have been  estimated, while for the extreme northern portions of the Dominion and the  Yukon the returns are not yet in. The  increase in the decade has been 10.46  per cent. aB against anincrease of 41.75  per cent, for the previous decade. The  number of families in 1901 is 1,042,782;  in 1891 the number was 921,643. The.  number of dwellings has increased from  877,086 to 1,003,9-44- The most important showing of the census is the increase  in the population of Quebec, 132,430.  The population of Ontario increased  onlv 53,657; British Columbia increased  91.S27: Manitoba, 93,958; New Brunswick, 9,830; Nova .Scotia, S.270; Prince  Edward Island decreased 5,820; North-  West Territories increased 78,201.

The odds were nobly faced. .The  cup was   bravely won.   The . victory  of  the Diiggan yacht on Lake St. Louis,the  Argonaut victory at Philadelphia, and  finally the Invader's triumph:  at   Chicago, prove that Canada has   nothing to  fear  from   Uncle  Sam   in   any  game   .  which   allows   the   result   to be deter-   .  mined by the skill and  strength  of the   ,  competitors   and   not by the length of   ;  their respactivs pocketbooks-���������Toronto   -  Telegram. ���������   " t  A PURE GRAPE CBCAM OF TARTAR POWDER  Highest Honors, World's Fair  Gold Medal, Midwinter Fair  Avoid Bakinff Povrders containing:  alum.

Muskmelom salad: 'Have the meltons not. overripe, cut into halves,  remove the seeds and soft part, take  out the edible portion, and fill the  ���������empty shells with cold water. Cut  ���������the melon into dice, and mix with  the contents of a. pint can of pineapple, 1 cup mashed bananas and 12  tart oranges which have been sliced  and quartered. Turn the, fruit into a  large bowl with the syrup from the  pineapple. Let stand for one hour,  then pour off the liquor, sweeten to  taste, and add enough dissolved, gelatine to make of creamy-consistency.  iPour over the fruit and place in ice  ehest. When ready to serve, till  shells wito chilled fruit and put oh  separate plates with a garnish of  wisp lettuce leaves.

Stand in a warm place for one hour,  make a deep- cross on each with a  knife, bake until light brown, and  roll in powdered sugar mixed with  pulverized cinnamon.  GOOD ADVICE.  One of the foremost surgeons, who  is a medical adviser to. the throne,  was called in to prescribe for a lady  friend of mine who is very active in  fashionable life, writes .Julian Ralph.  She was suffering from nervous  breakdown, and he found her generally out of order in brain, eyes,  heart and digestive organs. J am  going to tell you freely what he  said, though it cost her $50 to hear  Jiim'. "I cannot cure you,'' says he,  4'but you can easily euro yourself.  'All you have to do is to go to,bed  at 10 o'clock every night, no matter  what company you are .entertaining  or what temptation you have to gq  out and stay out latei I do it, and  have for years refused to allow any  business or pleasure to interfere with  ruy habit.    If you don't do it your  friends will say,    "Mrs.     was    a  clever woman. Plow well she used  to entertain us. But she is dead and  gone. If you do it they will have  do chance to  declare you, dead and  RAGRANT  <f.������Sr9  a perfeot liquid cMfriGe tor tfca  !^ She S0Z0D0NT LIQUID, 25c  S0Z0D0NTT00TH POWDER, 2Sc  Large LIQUID and POWDER, 75c  At all Storoa, or by Mail for tho price.

Milk will keep much bettor in a  shallow bowl than in a jug. A lump  of sugar dropped into tho milk will  help to keep it sweet.  Meat may be kept if it is wiped  with a dry cloth'and hung up in a,  cool, airy place, with a muslin bag  filled with charcoal  on each side.  The best way to keep the house  cool is: 'Mix whiting with size; add  a little linseed oil, and whitewash  the outside of the roof with it.  Fish which has to bo kept several  hours should be well cleansed, wiped  dry, and rubbed over with a little  coarse brown sugar. AVash before  using.' ���������  Jf gnats or earwigs get into the  ear, a puff of tobacco smoke will render them helpless. Afterwards a little warm water put in the car will  bring them .out.  When you're very ho/, and feel all  over alike, you may indulge in ���������'  pleasant cooler by wetting the backs  of your ears with cold water; or,  better still, use two strips of wetted  cloth, after the manner of spectacle  grips., ..'..'.  ���������Whenever your feet feci: hot and  tired, rub the soles of your socks  with a little pure yellow soap. This  will not;only keep the feet cool when  walking, but it will go a long way  to prevent corns and other common  ailments.  SANDWICH SECRETS.  The secret of a sandwich is entirely  in the manipulation. Given good  bread and butter, , and the rest is  largely a matter of patience. The  bread must be delicately thin and  crustlcss, the butter must be soft and  evenly spread, cheese must be finely-  grated, and meat or fish chopped or  pounded to a paste. The test bread  is bakers' water bread a day old,  though the loaf must not be cut before using. Brown bread being much  more moist, may be used on the day  of baking. Sandwiches should never  be made long before serving. If,  however, they must stand any length  of time, Uicir freshness is insured by  wrapping them, in a thick brown  paper, over- which a doubled napkin  wrung out in cold water is folded,  and setting them in a cool place.  THAT DECIDED HIM.  It is related of M. Lachaud, the  most famous of French criminal lawyers of the present century, that in  pleading a certain case he perceived  that one of tho jurors seemed to bo  hostile to him and his argument.  In the faces of all the other men m  the box ho saw with his practised  f-vc signs that his oratory or his  shrewdness was having its effect;  but this man. in .spite of all he could  do, remained frowning, suspicious,  obdurate. M. Lachaud kept on with  his work, and presently saw that his  opportunity had come. It was a hot  day and a'ray of sunlight had penetrated a crevice in'the curtain and  was shining upon the top of the  head of this juryman, who was quite  bald. The lawyer paused in his argument, and addressed himself directly to the court. "If your Honor  would please," he said, "to order  that the curtain in yonder window  be lowered a trifle, I am sure that  the sixth juryman would appreciate  it." This sign of watchful attention  won the obstinate juryman's heart  and M, Lachaud's case.  THE  ATTACK REPULSED.  A    Gallant   Deed of Arms by   the  British.  The correspondent of the London  Standard sends details regarding the  gallant defence of Captain M'Neil's  zarcba in the attack made by the  forces of the Mad Mullah, early in  dime last.    lie says :  "hi  the  morning,   at  about     nine  o'clock,  the whole available force of  the enemy  advanced   to   the  assault.  Their dispositions    were     extremely  well     ma.de.,  They     had  ascertained  that the southern and  western sides  of the zarcba, were  tho most assailable,  and  they completely enveloped  both these flanks, advancing in    perfect order.   The position was a critical one, as Captain M'Neill had only  three  hundred  men  with him��������� some  of whom  were sick and    left behind  by the main column���������and was further impeded  by the presence of     the  enormous   number   of  captured   camels.    He kept  his men,   however,  under perfect control, and reserved his  lire until   tho enemy approached      to  within live  hundred yards.   He  then  poured in volley     after volley,      to  which the enemy responded with  interest.      They advanced without     a  waver to within a hundred and fifty  yards of the zarcba, and    it seemed  that sheer weight of numbers    must  win the day.    At last,  however, they  were observed  to falter,  and    finally  they turned    and retreated in disorder, -leaving the ground covered with  dead     and wounded.   Three hundred  and  forty  of  their dead  were  counted within quite a short space   round  the zarcba, while about two hundred  more  were  found   in   the hills  which  surrounded the plateau on which the  zarcba is situated.  MANY DEA'D BODIES  have been found by the main body  of our force on the line of their retreat; and it is calculated that at  M'Ncill's zarcba the Mullah lost seven hundred; killed alone. It is impossible to say how many were  wounded.' \-   .  The Mullah took.no part in the  two attacks, but. watched them from  a hill close by. When he saw that  he was utterly defeated, he, with  his two chief advisers, Sultan Nur  and I-Iaji Sudi. galloped off with a  large body of cavalry, and headed  for the place from which he had  come, namely, Welahed. Colonel  Swayne had ..however, foreseen this,  and had camped in a valley on tho  direct road,to. \Vi������lahed. The enemy  fell into the . tr������p,,. and the pursuit  by the Mounted Infantry and Camel  Corps which I described in my previous letter was the consequence.  During this pursuit about one hundred more of the enemy were killed,  and a large number captured, the  Mullah himself being very nearly  taken. From first to last, therefore,  the enemy have lost,some eight hundred killed,- probably two thousand]  wounded, and a large number of pri-'  sonars, besides about one hundred  and fifty thousand rupees worth of  camel and cattle. The result is that!  the whole of the Northern and Eastern Dolbapanta. who, with the Allcg-  hiri, were the Mullah's 'mainstay,  have now sent their chief men into  our camp to treat for peace on our  own terms. They have completely  given , up their allegiance to the  Mullah." The dama Siad have even  gone so far as to attack and loot  the Aden Madoba. because they say  that it was the latter who seduced  thc-m from their obedience to the!  British Government. They have captured most of tho property of the  Aden Madoba, and are holding it for  us to take over.  -+-  CHESLEY USB  UP AGAIN.  JOHN  FLETCHER,   A  FARMER,  CURED    OF   LUMBAGO  BY  DODD'S KIDNEY PILLS.  One of the Thousand Similar Cases in Ontario���������A Common Trouble Among Farmers���������Dodd's  Kidney Pills Invariably   Cure It  Chcslcy, Ont., Aug. 5.���������Harvesting  is in full swing and the' farmers of  the section arc hard at it early and  late. For two steady months they  will be working harder than any  other class of men in the country.  Probably no,,period of the year is  so trying on the farmer as the harvest season. The management of a  farm, never a. light task, becomes  trebly heavy. Worries increase. The  actual manual labor from dawn to  dark and sometimes after, is as hard  as a man can stand.  It is not surprising that farmers  often break down after the threshing  is over. -'Plum tuckered out," the  system.is apt to be in a low, weakened condition which is easily thrown  out of order. The kidneys will show  the sign of it first. Backache will  probably be the first sign of the kidney trouble, accompanied by a brick  dust .sediment in the urine. From  this stage it is but a short step to  Lumbago, which is chronic Backache.  In this connection the letter of  John Fletcher, a farmer near Chcslcy, will be found useful, showing as  it' does, that Dodd's Kidney Pills  may be relied upon for cases of this  land.  '���������'I have been troubled all hsivcst,"  he writes, "with Lumbago and Kidney trouble. My urine was of a very  red color. I consulted the best medical doctors in the country but they  could not help me. -Finally I got  some Dodd's Kidney Pill's in Granton  and they proved all that 1 could  wish.- In a very short time my back  was as well as ever and the Kidney  disorder had completely gorr..^  -+-  THINGS  YOU  CAN'T DO.

SUNSUTNE AND SLEEP.  No syrup of poppies, no tincture oj  opium, no powders of moi-phino, says  one of the medical journals, can com  pare in sleep-producing power with!  sunshine. The worst soporific ia  laudanum and the best is sunshine.  Therefore,it is easily understood that  poor sleepers should pass as many  hours in the sunshine as possible.'  Many women are martyrs, and do  not. know it. They shut the sunshine out of their houses, they wear,  veils, they carry sunshades, they do  all that is possible to keep oil tha  subtlest and yet most potent influence which is intended to give them  strength and beauty and cheerfulness. :! t  SUPPLY OF GLASS EYES..  Germany and Switzerland produce  over 2,000,000 glass eyes, in a year;  and a Paris manufacturer, with a  reputation for finer work, some 300,-  000. They are made iu the shape of  a hollow hemisphere, and the utmost skill is required in forming tho  pupil out of the colored-glass. The  great majority of artificial eyes are  used by workmen, especially those  in iron foundries, where ninny eyes  arc put out by sparks. It is seldom  that a woman has a glass eye.  +.

The Unknown  Revenues  From His  Inheritance     From     His  Mother.  . The ��������� civil list, as they call the  appropriations for tho maintenance  of the King and his court, was voted  by Parliament recently and brought  two surprises, says a London letter.  In the first place, it was much smaller than the public generally expected  it would b,e, and the opposition to  it was much less. Three hundred and  seventy-six votes were cast, 300 in  favor and only  67 against.  The civil list carried a total of  52,350,000 for the King,-8250,000  for the Queen, ������190,000 for then-  sons and daughters ; continues the  annuities granted- many years ago to  the brothers and sisters of the King,  which amount to S3G5,000 ;' allows  SCO,000 a year to the Duke of  Cam  immense amount of property by  right of inheritance which is entailed  and cannot'be alienated or disposed  of except during life. Formerly all  the lands of the realm belonged to  the king.,, but by the extravagance  and generosity of various sovereigns  they had been reduced to such a degree that Parliament, upon the accession of Queen Anne, passed a law t  prohibiting any^ further .alienation, ' js Free from Any Particle of Coloring- Matter; is Dainty and Invigorating ; is the only tea that suits fastidious palates and is wholesome for*  the most delicate digestions.  and at the same time gave the crown  perpetually  the  revenues  from     cer  tain sources which, are  MORE OK LESS REGULAR.  bridge, the cousin of the late Queen,  l' and , $15,000 to the Princess Augusta, his sister, who is the wife of  the blind Grand Duke of Mecklenburg  making a grand total of S3,230,000,  which is an increase of $335,000 over  thc amount paid in Queen Victoria's  time. It is also a moderate appropriation iir comparison to those  granted the other sovereigns of  Europe. The following table will  show the appropriations for royalty  by the European powers :  Russia 513.751,000  Germany  3.929,S25  Austria  3,(525,000  England  3,230,000  Italy  3,210,000  Spain  1,S50,000  Belgium...... ...     1,375,000  Saxony......  ......   ......  ...... 940,000  Bavaria...... ......  700,000  ."Sweden.......    ...  ......... 560,000  Portugal......   ......    ... 400,000  Holland......   ;.....   ...   ....... 330,000  Denmark    .... 330,000  France    ......   ...   ......... 2,130,000  It was expected that King Edward  would ask at least $.3,000,000 for  himself alone in place of the S2.000,-  000 granted to Queen Victoria, for  his grcatuncle, King William, had,  an allowance of $2,500,000 sixty-  five years ago, when the purchasing  power of the,"pound sterling was  double what it is now, and the ruler  of England was not obliged to pay  the expenses of many court ceremonies and public functions, which  arc charged to him these days'. Furthermore, everybody familiar 'with  the, subject knows that the revenues  from the crown proncrty have .  MORE   THAN . DOUBLED.      ,  since 1837, when Queen Victoria surrendered them to the public treasury  in exchange for a permanent civil  list : of $2,000,000, and a promise  from Parliament to provide liberally  for her family. The Government'-and  not the Queen got the best of this  bargain. Owing to careful management and the increased value of    the  King William originally made  arrangement I have alluded to,  der which the revenues from  these "sources were collected by  finance officers of the kingdom  paid into the treasury in exchange  for a stated sum, and, following the  example of his mother and her predecessor on -the throne. King Edward  has agreed to surrender all of them  for an annual appropriation of $2,-  230,000, o.ithough like them, 'he  retains for himself th <��������� revenues of  the Duchy of Lancaster, which  amount to about $300,000 a year,  and for his son those of the Duchy  of Cornwall, which have been the  propjerty of the heir to the crown  for more than three centuries.  The civil list, as it is called, is  not voted in a lump sum, however,  but it is allotted to special purposes. For the salaries of the royal  household $629,000 is provided.  That is a reduction of $31,000 from  the amount allowed Queen Victoria,  which is due to the abolition of the  department of the buckhounds,  which originated in mediaeval days,  when the King and the court went  on hunting excursions throughout  the kingdom and kept a professional  huntsman and hounds for that purpose. There arc a number of other  equally absurd sinecures which ought,  to be abolished, but they are held  by men of importance and influence,  and Parliament does not like to meddle with them.   .  For household expenses $905,00.0 is  allowed. With this money eight or  ten palaces have to be kept up���������  Windsor, Buckingham, St. James,  Hampton Court, Osborne, Balmoral.  Sandrihgham, Kingston, Clarcmbunt  Frogmorci and others, although the  greater part of the expenses at Osborne, Balmoral and Sandn'ngham  which were the private property of  Queen Victoria, are paid from the  ���������Privy ���������pursc.V-The-official palaces are  an enormous expense, and the maintenance of the stables, carriages and  parks must be paid from this fund.  For repairs the sum of $100,000 is  appropriated, and to this the cost  of the new. furniture, now being put  into '.Windsor'- and Buckingham palaces,  is charged.

Queen Victoria left a large estate  in jewels, stocks, bonds and lauded  property. She owned some of the  most profitable buildings in London,  and inherited from her husband  whole blocks oi residences in the  fashionable ciuarfcr of the city. Tier  holdings were so large, that it required  a. staff of eight or ten men v> look  after them. No one, knows what disposition she has made of them, because tho will of a sovereign is  probated, and the facts have  leaked out. It is the general  pression, however, that the estate  has been placed in trust for the perpetual benefit of her heirs, and the  King no doubt gets  A  LARGE  SHARE  OF  IT.  so that his income will be  increased  thereby.  Queen Victoria had seventy-four direct heirs, and when the revenues of  her  estate    arc  distributed     among  them     no     one can     receive a very  large  amount,   although she was     a-  very    rich    woman.

The new board, which is called the  regency, and is really a board to  consider reforms, is regarded as of  great importance, says a despatch-  from Pckin. Prince -Ching, Li Hung  Chang and Kung Kang, the three  members of the board who are in  Pckin, ha.vc received a communication of about 2,000 words from the  Court.. This communication defines  the duties of the board.

It  is also required that the members  shall yield .their private opinions to  the wishes of the majority.  The communication is under ten  heads. The first directs that the  board shall pay subordinates 'for  thcir ability, integrity and spotless-  ness without regard to rank or precedent. The second says the board  must rectify abuses with firmness and  moderation.

Several of them will     no  doubt reach thrones.  The civil list also contains 'an annual allowance of $100,000 for the  Duke, of Cornwall, and $30,000 to  each of his sisters, the Duchess of  Fife, the Princess Charles of Denmark and the Princess Victoria. Tho  Duke receives about $310,000 a year  from the revenues of Cornwall,  which makes his income $410,000.  His wife has an allowance of $50,-  000. The allowances to the King's  brothers and sisters are as follows :  the reduction of the debt,-  the King gets from the Duchy of  j Lancaster. This gives him a total  of $850,000 for his personal expenses, of which ho is required to  render an account.  Alexandra has an allowance of  $250,000, from which must be paid  all of her expenses and salaries of a  large number of retainers required by  the Queen. She has reduced the number considerably, but is paying about  30 per cent, larger salaries than  Queen Victoria allowed, because the  ladies in waiting upon the present  Queen will be subjected to many  more expenses in the way of wardrobe. Queeii' Victoria --was exacting  in many respects, but she entertained so little and dressed so simply  herself that her attendants did not  require elaborate and expensive toilets. Under the present regime things  will be different, and none but ladies  of wealth can accept such positions.

The Mining Review.  SATURDAY, AUGUST 21, lm.  The Nelson Tribune and  the  Silver-  Ionian, of Silverton, have discovered at  length the cause of all  the misfortunes  of the mining industry of this country,  .The Tribune has learned that the mines  .are over capitalized, and  the Silverton-  ian has discovered the old country directors get too much  salary.    Well, supposing both these statements were true,  does advertising the facts si art the mines  -    agoing and revive commercial business?  W,e willingly acknowledge many directors in England are overpaid; it is also  an absolute fact that no property in the  country can   be   expected to  pay large  dividends on those over-capitalizations,;  but all the mines now silent do not over  pay directors, nor  are  all of the silent  properties over-capitalized.   These two  mistakes where made,  are  beyond the  control of the British  Columbia legisla-  ' ture; but as   the whole  future   of   the  country depends on the operation of the  mines,it is only (he further proof the B.  0. legislature and  some   of  the   13. 0.  prints   should   not   content themselves  with pointing out mistakes they are unable to remedy, when there are so many  obstacles they can remove,  and  that if  removed would give   the country an era  of unprecedented prosperity.   The mine  owners say the mines   pay one-third of  the local revenues of the country, and  that 22 per cent, of   the   profits of   the  mines goes into the provincial treasury.  Now, if this half the truth���������if the mines  pay half of   these   revenues,   they pay  three times the taxation  the rest of the  property of   the   country, whose   prosperity is depending on mines, pays year  in   and   year  out.    Why, for instance,  should a house that cost over  #1,000 be  let off with a tax.of $2.50 by the provincial government?    Why should  a stock  of merchandise that cost $10,000 and is  all paid for be let off with a tax of ;r2f>?  and this is the way things   are   run   in  the province.    We repeat the personal  property and incomes of   the province,  the farms and wild-lands, the improvements'and town lots outside 'of   incorporated towns���������all taxed by the provincial government, should pay from three  to five times! what taxation they.do-pay,  as they do in   other   provinces, and  reduce by at least one-half the taxation of  the mines.  This would give the country  a new lease of  life.   Reducing capitalization and salaries  of  directors where  excessive, would of course help the industry; but such reductions are beyond  the control of the British Columbia people, while the other excesses are within  our control.   It is a. foolish   man who  complains of the wet and stands out in  the rain: The rain he cannot help,but he  can put upan unibrellaorcoinein doors,  and either would serve   his   purpose as  well as complaining of   the  shower beyond his control.  The case of the Mountain   Con   mine  .here furnishes an 'illustration  of   what  ��������� it would  be   well   for  miners,  miners'  unions and prints of the Nelson Tribune  stamp to fully exam inc to enable  them  to form less biased conclusions,   Some  > months ago an English company bonded  it at $20,000, and paid, we  believe, $10,-  000.   They sent out Mr. Reihle, a very  'competent man, to   look  into   it  with  somewhat extensive work before payiug  the remaining $10,000. Mr. Reihle spent  some $10,000 all told, and got but a few  hundred pounds of ore, finding the metal  A BACKWARD CHILD  In a child that is backward  in teething, look' out for  rickets.

While all or nearly all that can be said  in favor of sympathy to the, miners because of the extremely dangerous nature  of their calling may be true; 'it in no  way should lessen the fact that, fairplay  must be shown to capital in operation,if  satisfactory employment is to be forth-  coining for the men.

"pockety," and scarce at that, in tiie  lead. Here then is a case of a company  spending $20,000, furnishing considerable employment for labor, and getting  no return. Now the Nelson Tribune,  miners and miners' unions, will look at  this with supreme indifference, and.say  that was all a speculation, and capi'  must stand its chances in speculation.  This may be all very true; hut is it not  equally a fact, the more risky speculation is made by governmental and other  artificial restrictions the more cbarry it  becomes, and the less liable to help out  labor. If, for instance, the expenditure  that cost the $10,000 had been less the  result of.government interference,either  the-more work, would have been done  that might have resulted in a strike, or  the lighter the burden would have fallen on the capitalists. In either case the  more likely again would have been these  ite%   ���������  Our neighbor wants  the  government  to erect and operate a silver-lead refinery, smelter, etc.  It never occurs to him  that this would bo invading the  field of  private   enterprise, the  very thing   all  govern men ts are loath   to   do, and properly so.    Some of the most nearly unanswerable arguments ever adduced are  in favor of governments becoming bankers for the pc-ople, because they can get  money cheaper than any private parties  or corporations can get it; but they are  offset by the   contention,   it   is   taking  business  out  of   the hands of private  _".   parties   and   forcing   fnem   to go elsewhere.    In all   new countries, at least,  like the provinces of Canada, the idea is  to bring in a population by inducements  where necessary, instead of  driving  it  out   by government   monopoly.   There  are some people who can see no farther  than catering to the prejudices of labor,  for  the  popularity with   the  laboring  classes it may bring;   but   such   people  never do much to build-up any country.  Every country ������������������must   have   labor, and  every   country   that   prospers   does   it  largely in liberal , treatment  of   labor;  but.  labor   is   not   ail to a country any  more   than   type is  to a printing office,  without   presses cases, &c.   This paper  has at times spoken strongly for capital,  not that we believe   capital is more desirable 'than.labor, but   merely  in   correcting   the   absurdities'  advanced   by  some   catch-vote   prints.   Let the government of this province clear the way  for extensive,   profitable investments,  large   demand   for   labor will   speedily  follow; and with both  operating agree-,  ably together, there will' be no need for  the government entering   the  field  of  either.

The City 'fCouneil."  The city council.mill appears to  continue  grinding without  giving a single  thought ae to where it is' gointr' to  end.  The salaries alone cost in������ the neigh bor-  ,   hood of $,'100 a month, and the other in -  ���������  cidentals   run   up   about .$200, making  nearly )fl.000 of an  indebtedness since  the 1st of'.July, and the cash  received is  not over ifSoO, leaving a-delicit of .something-like :|()00 under "Acn'ng Mayor"  Duffy's regime.   This is all  right, however, as it, is not ''bucking the union."  The wh jle drift of things is to run   the  place in th������ interests of non-taxpayers,  and   let   the ��������� property holders foot the  bill. What is a surprise to many.is why  the show is   not   closed   down at once.  There'is a positive-law that no council  of one vear can create debt for the council of the next   year   to   pay (excepting  debenture debt), and how  the present  council can hope to clear off all floating  debts by iho 1 yt of January is a mystery  to all. "it is   only leaving   the   trouble  the greater for the receiver later on. No J  relief  can   be   looked ��������� for  from realty i  taxes, as the property holders, one and i  all, say they will pay nothing.   Nor can j  an illegal council violating  all   law and  precedent   in expenditure compel them  to pay.    City Clerk Lyons, who became  a British subject when he saw a revenue  in si<rht,.and   now cares  as. much   for  British institutions as Crawford's mules  do for the   Lamentations of Jeremiah,  and knows as much about them, builds  great  hopes  on  what- the Lewtenant  (Lieutenant) Governor   may do   in the  premises, but there is one thing certain  lie will nevtr assume the city's debt or  condone the acts of ignorance.  If the batch of illegalities would only  resign at once, andsave the costs of unseating, the government would take  hold of the matter all the sooner, and  set to work to straighten matters out.  Continuing the farce only makes confusion more confounded.  All who have property interests here,  would like to see'the town pick up and  become a place of some importance, as  it certainly would if responsibility was  placed in competent.experienopd hands.  Running things as they are is only making the name "Sandon" a byword abroad  and casting a reproach on the reputation of the citizens.

King Edward VJI. of England  reigns over about -..n.i������i.n).f>0("i people,  or a quarter of mankind.  As Prince of Wales his income was  about ������500,000; as King lie gets  about $.0,000 a. day.  The King, (ho Lord .Mayor and tho  Constable,of the 'Power arc the only  persons who know t.liu password of  the Tower of London. This password is sent in t lie Mansion lloiiso  quarterly, signed by the King, and  is a, survival of an ancient custom.  Four men in .London, all of respectable standing in society, so  closely resemble King Kdward in appearance that, it is often a source  of embarrassment to  them.  Edward's usual incognito when  travelling abroad has been Baron  Jienfrew. Tie lias also been known as  Mr. Moulton, and in Constantinople,  which the Prince and Princess of  Wales visited soon after their marriage, the pair went about through  the bazaars as plain Mr. and Mrs.  Williams. I  How long will the King live?]  There is an old gypsy saying that ���������  the I'rincc of Wales would dieby vio-:  lencc as soon as -'a, great honor was ���������  conferred upon him.'' The prodic-j  lions of I his gypsy are said tu have l  come true in regard to other mom-|  hers of European royal families. ]  The King has never shown the;  slightest fear of assassination. The,  insurance companies are rapidly approaching the limit of tho ri������k they  will accept on  KING  HOWARD'S LIFE. '  JI is  expectation;     according   to     insurance tables,  is .1.4.1     years.     Allowance  for      moral   hazard,   or  the  chance of assassination,  reduces this j  to ton years.  As a public .speaker, tho King has  shown mastery of such intricate and  diverse subjects as art. literature;  dramatic history, military matters,  engineering, -'.shipping, civic institutions, the study of the Bible and  Mission work, the history of Egypt,  the Irish question, the management  of lifeboats, collegiate education,  ambulance and first aid training, agricultural improvements, live stock  breeding, ;the reclaiming of barren  land, the management of hospitals,  the housing of the poor, the Darwinian' theory, railways and their  management and  musical  training.  Between .Ian. 1 and Sept. 1 of last  year Edward went to forty-three  public dinners and banquets, to  twenty-five garden parties and concerts, thirty times to the opera and  theatre, to twenty-eight race meetings; eleven tinier, he was in attendance at the House of Lords, and he |  fulfilled forty-five official and charitable engagements.  In his own set the favorite topic  of conversation has been ; clothes.  The King is an expert shoemaker, a  .handicraft he 'chose- to learn when a  boy, being obliged by his royal parents to learn some trade. He has  worn shoes of his own make.  One of. the happiest moments of  the King's life was when he won the  Derby with Persimmon in 1S96.  .Shooting the King places above ail  other entertainments that can bo  offered him, and his principal, visits  have always been paid in tho shooting season. Yachting he understands  thoroughly.   The   King  is  an  AN  .INVETERATE SMOKER.  Under "Likes and Dislikes," the  King has written in the Duchess of  Fife's album over his signature, "I  am the happiest when "J. have no  public engagement to fulfill, when I  can smoke a. really good cigar and  read a, good novel on the quiet ;  when I can, like plain Mr. Jones, go  to a, race meeting without being  chronicled in the paper tho next  morning that the Prince of Wales  has taken to gambling very seriously and lost more money than he can  ever afford to pay: when f can spend  a quiet evening with tho Princess  and. my family. I am tmhappiost  when I have a, raging toothache and  have to attend some function where  ] must smile as pleasantly as though  f never had a pain in.my life."  Edward VJI. is rather a light cater, except at dinner, and has never  been  a great wine  drinker.  Jn the matter of gifts the King has  been  abundantly      favored. They  vary in size from a cat to a hotel.  Dogs, cats and other quadrupeds galore have been given or left to the  King by bequest. His name has  been mentioned in not far from a  hundred wills as the recipient of the  family dog, juid on more than - one  occasion an annuity has been left by  a, testator in order that the maintenance of the*animal should be no  expense  to   tho  royal   master.  One hobby of Edward's is collecting crystals. [Jo knows all about  ceramics  and  bronzes.  One of the King's treasures is a  solid gold dinner set, the most magnificent in the world. It is valued  a'L 8-1.000.00U and is kept at Windsor Castle. Another unique- .specimen of its kind belonging to Edward is the state carriage, which  cost S40.000. Jn addition to being  the most ornate vehicle in existence,  it is said to be one of the most uncomfortable. Queen Victoria never  used it when she could avoid doing  so, as it always gave her a headache.  KING   EDWARD'S   CHAMPION,  the    Champion    of    England,    is      a j  young     Lincolnshire farmer    named ���������  Dymokc.    He is of  a studious      and '  retiring disposition,   little given     to '  the gayeties of  tho  great  world.    It1  is said  ho      is     somewhat exercised j  over   the necessity  of  fulfilling      the I  duties  of his office.   This  is  to  ride I  out of the hall where the banquet is  held   after  the  coronation,   clad     in  steel armor, and challenge all comers  to  deny the  title  of  the  now  sovereign,    i-le  then  pledges  the  King    in  the golden goblet filled with    wine,  finally  backing his  horse  from   ; tho  royal  presence.   Young Dymokc possesses  this honor  by virtue of holding the manor of Scrivclsby,    which  liis  ancestors  have      held   since  the  time-of the Norman Kings.   The Dy-  mokes got    the manor by marriage  more than 500 years ago,  and since  then have acted     as  Champion     at  each coronation.  THE EELISH BIRTH SATE,  -+-  THEN THE COURT LAUGHED.

The world's strangest railways are  to  be    found    principally  in  India, |  America,    Switzerland    and Ireland.;  The Loup at "Agony Point," on the-j  Darjceling       Railway,       India,       is'  thought to  bo the sharpest curve in'  the world     ;  while  Mount Rigi,     in'  Switzerland, has no fewer than three;  railways to  its summit.    When     tho  Jungfrau Railway     is completed     it  will bo the most remarkable one    in'  the world.   Jts highest station    will  be 13.GG8 feet above soa-levol,     and;  the    cost of,this  line will  be about!  52,000.000.   Of the    American   rail-1  ways    the strangest is the     Cripple'  Creek,  where the great  timber  tres- j  tic over which the train has to pass  in    crossing a    chasm,  is so curved  that the'line is made to tip inwardly,  and   the sensation is  terrible to  the traveller on a fast  train ; while  in Ireland  there is a curious    single  line railway at Listowcl.  In Russia, there are only 74.0 newspapers, one to every 170,000 people.  Of these 589 arc in Russian, 69 Polish, 41 German, 9 French. 5 Armenian, 2 HcbreWf  DECLINING      MORE      RAPIDLY  THAN THAT OF FRANCE.   -.���������  Dean  Fremantle  of  Rip on   on  the  Decline���������Causes  and  Consequences.  Englishmen have long been proud  of the prolificncss of their race, and  consequently the story told by the  last census, that the English birthrate was declining even more rapidly  than that of France, came as a rude  shock. Dr. Fremantle, the Dean-of  Ripon, points out in a. letter to the  London Times that "all Europe, except Russia, is going in the same  direction, and England is leading the  way.  "In the year .1875," he says "there  were born in the United Kingdom  o.j children* for each 1.000 of the  people. In the year 1900 there arc  only 29. That is, for every 1,000  of our 41 \ millions there arc now  born six fewer than twenty-five years  ago; and this means a loss of 249,-  000 children for each year. This is  a. new and strange phenomenon in  England; but. what is still more  startling, it implies a. much more  rapid decline of the birth rate than  that of France, where tho process has  gone on gradually throughout the  century.  "A well-known statistician���������Mr.  Holt Schooling���������has recently summed up an exhaustive inquiry by  pointing out that, whereas in 1875  the excess of births over deaths in  England was S.5 greater than in  France, it is now only G.S; and he  adds that this has come to pass despite the continuous and material  decline of the French birth rate during the whole period, a decline, however, which has been exceeded both  actually and .relatively by the    ,  DECLINE OF OUR  OWN RATE. \  "This state of things has been little noticed in England because of two  causes: '-.First:'. Pari passu with the  decline of the birth rate there has  been a large decline in the death,rate.  This stood in .1875 at 21. r.cr "'1,000;;  in 1900 at IS. That is. while wo  arc losing six for each 1,000 by the  lessoned births, we arc gaining three  by the lessened deaths. We lose a  quarter of a million annually by the  death rate. Second: The immigration has largely increased. Whereas  in former decades the emigrants exceeded the immigrants by 68,000 a  year; in the last decade they have  been nearly balanred.  "Our loss by the birth rate ��������� is  largely made up, like that of France,  from abroad. But this increased immigration is by no means a satisfactory thing. And as to the death  rate, it lias reached a point beyond  which it can hardly go. It now,  stands at 18, which means that  every child born in these islands lives  on an average fifty-five years. We  must expect, that in the next decade  there will be little or no compensation from this source for the diminished birth rate. '''  "What, then, is the prospect which  this diminution opens to us? We  have seen that the decrease is going  on ,11101-0 rapidly here than in any  other country, France not excepted.  Since 1875 (the year, I think, in-  which Mr. Bradlaugh's book "The  Fruits of Philosophy" was published) the decrease of our birth rate j  has been G per cent., from 85 to 29. j  JC this continues in the next twenty-  five years it will have to,come down  from 29 to 23 per 1,000, and in less  than fifty years from this time it  will have been reduced to 17, the  lowest figure which we can imagine  the birthrate to reach. There will  then be no increase of the nation,  but, as now in France, the prospect  of  ACTUAL DIMINUTION.  "But there is more than this. The  process has hitherto affected only  special parts of our country. In  London the annual birthrate is about  29 per 1,000; in Westmoreland it is  about 20. At Gateshead it stands  at 38; at Huddersfield at 22. In the  latter town, though it is a flourishing manufacturing centre, there are  actually 400 fewer people in 190.1  there were in 1891, and the school  board    cannot    fill    their    schools.  There is no reason to doubt that the  limitations of families will go on beyond any assignable limits unless the  conscience of the nation awakes to  its tremendous danger.  ��������� "In every country this materialism  finds.reason for its existence. In  America for a long time past and in  Australia, as the recent census shows  it has taken a. firm hold, as it has  now . among ourselves. It is-very  natural for young people with small  incomes to sa.y, 'We can more easily  live in the station in which we were  born, and bring up our children, if  the family-be limited to one or two.'  They forget that the affection of a  large family and their mutual help  in the struggle, of life arc often the  stimulus of what is best in character  and even in temporal well-being.  "The French are justly alarmed.  But the French have no real'colonies  and they have a comparatively small  commerce. To us the whole world  lies open. Our three great groups  of.colonies, in Canada, Australia and  Africa,. can absorb all the surplus  population of the British Isles for an  indefinite time to comcr'and colonization no longer means expatriation.  In the presence of these possibilities  is not the wilful diminution of our  race  a crime  against  humanity  and  its Author?"   ������   TIT-BITS.  55 per cent, of all criminals in  prison' arc between the ages of 21  and 40,  12   per   cent,   of   the   British   army ���������  are   5  ft.   10  in.   or  over   in  height.  The Italian has only 4 per cent.  The average amount of time which  a man loses yearly by illness is ten  days.  The French army has 29.000 officers, the Italian 14,000, and the  Spanish 28,000.

It  is   advisable when   investing   in  the poultry business    to    select    the  best    specimens    obtainable    of  the  breed   which  is  particularly   adapted  to   the  trade which is to   be catered  to, and this selection should be very  carefully made,  since the future     of  the  business  depends  to  a  considerable    extent    upon    this    selection.  There  are,  too,  many other advantages  in getting one good   breed  and  sticking to it.    Tho surplus cockerels  from such stock may be disposed  of  for   breeding  purposes  and  at prices  ahead  of market    values.       Surpias  eggs,  too, may be sold for hatching  at prices considerably in  advance  of  eggs for tabic use.    We do not wish  to  convey  the impression  that average mongrel  stock will  not  respond  fairly   well   to   good  treatment     and  pay well,   but we wish  to emphasize  the fact that for very little advance  in  original     investment  a  breed     of  birds may be secured which have for  generations been selected   because . of  special  fitness either as layers,  moat  producers,   or  both.     And  we  would  state most emphatically    that    pure  bred stock is a better money maker  since where one is keeping fowls with  some special purposes in view a variety of fowl  can be    selected-   which  unquestionably    is    better fitted  for  the work thau any mongrel could be  expected to be:  .���������4_: f. ._  CURIOUS  COTTAGES.     ,  ;��������� Near Wakefield, in Yorkshire, Fng-  land, a most comfortable cottage  has been made, so far as the walls  are concerned, of a number of great  drain-pipes left by a contractor ' for  years, whilst4 the roof consists of the  refuse of an oilcloth factory. There  are in England alone half a dozen  cottages, not to speak of many summer houses, made wholly out of old  preserved provision-cans,  of a foreman "winder'  colliery near Barnsley contains five  rooms, yet the whole of the outer  walls and roof are made of meat and  other tins. ���������  VERY ECCENTRIC.  Of course you quite understand  that 1 shall call upon Mrs. Whiffler  for your character, remarked Mrs.  Taggetly to the girl she had just engaged.  Certainly, m'm' replied the girl, although  I would  rather you     didn't,  for Mrs.  Whiffler is so eccentric that  she is not always  to  be relied upon.  -In  what way is she eccentric?  (She  insists  that her     husband     is  quite   a  model   father   and   husband,  and that her children have not caused, her a moment's anxiety.  I-l'ni!  Not much in that.  Then she says that she is perfectly  content with one new  dress and one  new hat each- season.  H'm!   she is eccentric then.  She   doesn't    cycle;���������   says   it  isn't  womanly, and she further thinks that  women     have    got  their  rights  and  have nothing  to  light  for.  Good gracious!     You don't say so!  And.-finally, slic has never attended  a  bargain  sale,   and  says  that    the  only     things    sold  at  them  arc  the  women- who buy!  Oh, the woman's mad!
