A paper was circulated and signed by  many, and the sum of $15 monthly was  contributed, in a few hours.

Tis sad 'tis true that a newspaper  cannot always make its opinions conform to the views of some three-  dollar-a-month advertiser.  The Kaslo paper has improved  under the'new editorial management.  It corners out now loaded to the head  rules with words, beautiful words.  The Nelson minstrels were vaccinated with the marble heart in Sandon  last week. This will teach them to  stay away from a town in which such  a narrow minded spirit is rampant.  Joe Martin may be short on suavity  but he has more sense than some people. He subscribed for The Ledge  last week, and as he will take it  regularly his troubles are almost sure  to fade away, as does the morning  mist before the rising sun.  The poem, "An Absent Minded  Beggar." is an insult to Tommy  Atkins and those who depend upon  him, When he is at the front putting  up his time and blood in defense of  the old flag why should all the country ring with the fact that he is a  "beggar"? Whv should his wife or  girl he walked with be compelled to  subsist upon charity because'Tommy-  marched away without leaving anything in the bank? Should the  cheeks of these women be tinted with  the red (lush of shame and wounded  pride because they have to accept  the bread of charity? We think not.  It is their men who save the nation,  and the nation should provide them  with  everything  necessary   without  and thought he would follow the  teachings of that good book. Our  readers will be shocked after reading this, but do you ever think about  the horror of the sacrament as practiced in some churches in Canada.  People kneel around a table and eat  bread and drink wine, imagining  that they are eating the flesh and  drinking the blood-of Christ To our  mind this is a most cannibalistic service, such as some fanatic like the  Dutch elder would originate. It is a  relic of barbarism that should be laid  away by all civilized beings. We  will be condemned for these words by  some narrow-minded Jesus howlers,  but no man imbued with proper  thought can but admit that we are  right. To find almost at sun-up ot  the twentieth century that thousands  of people think such things are right  is but a proof of how priestcraft and  religious rites will cause people to  act more like idiots than rational  images ot God.  >J__M  ontr  Established  1817.

TOO    MUCH     RELIGION.  People in Sandon are a careless  lot. They just let the scenery slide  while they keep right on looking at  their hole card, oblivious to the fact  that the fate of Pompeii, somewhat  cooled, may overtake them when  their hands are stretched out to take  in the pot.   Uneasy rests the head that snores  in Sandon. A slide is liable to come  down at any time and make business  for the cemetery. It is surprising  how people will take chances upon  living in such an unsafe locality.  Some are bound to die. for it, while  the lucky ones will escape.  Sandon is slowly filling up with a  choice line of hoboes, macques, shoestring gams, and ladies of the oldest  profession on earth. Sandon being  the Monte Carlo of B. C. the moths fly  against its flame., just the same as a  contingent of summer flies tackle a  masked battery of molasses.  Men who have studied animals say  that the hyena has the best stomach,  and has been known to swallow six  bones without crushing them. That  may be so, but the hyena never  swallowed any of the beefsteaks that  saw service in the Slocan when the  ���camp was young, and the inhabitants  wild with enthusiasm and capable of  outdoing even a hyena in feats of  gastronomical skill.  It does not do to go to excess in religion any more than it does in drinking tea or any other custom or habit  of the age. In Holland they sometimes go to excess in religion. In a  church not far from Amsterdam, occurred last February a service that  was the most thrilling we have heard  of lately." An elder persuaded the  congregation that it was necessary to  offer up a human sacrifice. After  praise of the Lord and prayer had  been indulged in this fanatic seized  four women, one after the other, and  cut their throats from ear to ear. The  elder demanded another sacrifice,  and seizing his wife he despatched  her in the same manner as the others.  Then, after washing his hands in the  blood of his victims, the congregation  wended its way homewards.  We have heard of many exciting  ways of bringing people to Jesus, but  this knocks the laggan out of the  whole works. For thrilling religious  rites it occupies the top stope. The  Dutch elder must have been reading  about human sacrifices  in the bible,  /  out the usual formality in civilized;  communities of holding a coroner's!  inquest. In this instance, again, the!  circumstiwices surrounding the acci- j  dent that caused the death are such !  as to ��� demand investigation. The j  body was held at the Enterprise mine I  three days,   awaiting the arrival of j  the proper official, but he did not ma- J f��f\ f_\11 fj    I~$ ��$ //  terialize.    This is an outrage.

"Colonel Jack Ghiim's knife," a murderous looking blade, is also pretty' well  known. It is said that Chinn never  permits this weapon to leave his possession.  Several years ago Col. Chinn visited  Texas. He brought with him a negro  valet, Sam. The negro had been a  slave in the Chinn family before the war  between the States, and idolized his  j young master. One night while in  Houston the darkey came to Chinn and  said:  "Massah Jack, I'segoin' out in cullud  society heah tonight, an' I'd like to borrow dat ivory-handled sixshooter of  yours to take along."  "Why, you black  rascal," returned  j the  colonel,   "some of  these Houston  j coons will take the gun from you and  j break it over your head."  !    The darkey straightened up.   Like  ! his master,  he was a mau of unques-  I tioned nerve, and there was a peculiar  'glitter in his eye as he said:  j     "Massah Jack,  you  let  me hah dat  j gun, an' if I don't show up here wid hit  ! in de niawnin'you  can go down to de  | morgue an' throw   'down', de sheet an'  ! say: -Lawd! don't he look maclieii."

Slowly it  moved towards its dock, its huge sides  quivering and palpitating, like a thing of  life, with each pulsation of its ponderous  engines. A slight sound, a grating noise  as of two mountains in mortal combat,  followed by the clanking of monstrous  chains, conveyed the intelligence that  the gang plank had been lowered, and  crew and passengers were once more  safely anchored within the sheltering  bosom of mother earth.  "Iloorah for  Ameriky !" exclaimed  a  modestly  clad  man, of 'decidedly  Cork  dialect, one among the  first to gain  the  dock.    "Me trials an'  sufferins  are over  at last.

The sleet beat furiously in the faces of  the frenzied pedestrians and the fierce  gusts of wind, twirling around the angleB  of tiie huge buildings, fairly lifted them  off their feet. Muttered curses and fierce  ejaculations, interspersed now and then  with an earnest petition of, "1 beg your  pardon, sir,'" completed the category of  the subject under discussion.  Presently a clear voice rang out above  the roaring of the tern pest, repeating that  ever familiar cry, "Papers! papers!  Morning papers! All about the new  American possessions, and the rapid formation of trusts!"  "Divel a trust!" returned a gruff voice  from the throng. "Oi wouldn't trust a  mon this side uv Ould Oireland.

I  Late one Saturday night, in the midst  of a terrible blizzard, Frederick Douglas  arrived in Peoria, 111. He was to give a  lecture there the following evening, but  ro preparations had been made to receive him. . Going to the hotel, the'pro-  pi ietor refused to take him in, and he  was obliged to seek lodgings elsewhere.  After walking till exhausted, seeking a  place where he could lay his head, half  frozen and sick at heart from the discourtesy shown him, Mr. Douglas stopped a stranger who was hastening in his  direction. Stating his predicament, he  inquired if he could tell him of one man  in that town who would give him shelter. "Well, I don't know," said the  other, "but there is one man, and he's  Bob lngei-3oll, and his house is down  this street. ' Thanking him, Mr. Douglass went to find Mr. Ingersoll. It was  not difficult, and at Mr.Ingersoll's home  he, was warmly welcomed and hospitably  entertained. "If I had been a prince,''  said this negro, who was one of nature's  noblemen, "I could not have received  more courteous, and shall I say it, more  Christian treatment."

Some time ago an elderly married couple, who had spent the great part of  their lives in a village in Derbyshire,  made up their minds to take a journey  to London.  They received plenty of advice from  their neighbors about how they were to  take care of themselves, and especially  to beware of the London sharper. To  save expense, they decided to go by one  of the cheap trips that started from a  neighboring town.  They got safely off, and all went well  till the train reached Bedford, at which  place it stopped a few minutes.  The old man, thinking he had plenty  of time, went to the refreshment bar to  get a glass of beer, and he was so flustered by the crowd that he did tho very  thing he was afraid of���got left behind.  An express train being due, however, in  a few minutes, the station muster kindly  allowed him to go by it, and he was thus  enabled to reach London twenty minutei  before his wife.  He was eagerly on tiie lookout when  the trippers arrived, and seeing his wife  he rushed up to her shouting:  "Hi, Betty, I'm glad to see ye agean.  I thought we wor parted forever. '  Betty looked at him indignantly, and  remembering the advice of her country  friends, said:  "Away wi' ye, man.    Don't he comin'  Lunnon tricks wi' me.  I left niv owd  NOTICE.

XKSBITT, (Hosun Block)  Dealer in  N"e\V DENVER is  located on  the  east shore of Slocan lake, one of  the  most   beautiful   bodies   of  j water in existence,  hemmed in  on all sides by mountains that tower  high above the clouds, and whose mineral wealth has as yet only been  scratched. The lake and mountain  scenery that greets the vision as one  looks in any direction from the town is  beyond description and must be seen  to'be appreciated. What the Lucerne  is to Switzerland, New Denver is to  America. The depth ot the waters of  Slocan lake is so great that the surface  never freezes, and the temperature of  water varies but a few degrees from  summer to winter. Soundings have  been made and have proven the depth  of the lake to be from 900 to 1,300 feet.  Trout, salmon, charr and other varieties of fish abound, and fishing parties  go out almost daily from New Denver,  returning with good catches. The  mountains and canyons surrounding  the town are stocked with game of every  description, from the toothsome grouse  and rabbit to the stately elk and caribou. There is no limit to the sportsman's opportunities of enjoyment.  But, sublime though be the scenery;  superb its location as a residential town,  New Denver is not dependent upon its  natural beauty for its life. At its v^i-y  door, the town has mineral wealth unlimited. Silver mountain, while yet iu  its initial stage of development, promises to be one of the greatest producers  of galena ore in the Slocan. Situated  on this mountain, within an hour's walk  of New Denver, are several mines already working, and others will be in  operation shortly. The Mountain Chief,  which has shipped 8150,000 worth of ore,  will soon resume operations under new  management. The Marion, California.  Hartney and Bosun-Fidelity mines are  working regularly, employing from 10  to 35 men each. The Bosun is a regular shipper. This is the second year  of its operation. On ah investment of  $7,500 the Bosun company cleaned up  .$(30,000 the first year of its operation.  Adjoining these properties are nuiiier  o.us developing prospects, which offer  great opportunities for the investment  of capital.  Within the distance of a mile from  Silver mountain the silver-gold belt is  encountered. On Goat mountain several properties are under development,  and two of them have made .small ship-  of ore. It is quite different from the  galena ores, and is of much higher  grade. The. galena or wet ore of Silver  mountain runs about Sloo to the ton, j  while all the ore shipped from Goat  j mountain has brought from SvioO to Sluu  : per ton.  j New Denver is the natural residen-  j tial point for the mines within a radius  i of ten miles.

Typographical Journal,  written bv J. M. V. Grainier, of Buffalo,  N.Y.:  In his annual report to. the Knights of  Labor, General Master Workman Parsons, speaking1 of the issues on which  the workingman  should  take  a stand,  said:  Perhaps the most important of these  issues will be the trust, for who has not:  observed the progress of its making,  and who will contend that it carries any  charm to the wage earner. The concentration of wealth as employed iu the  industries of our country, has made  many strikes during the past few years  which have, resulted to their detriment  wherever such combinations have been  affected. It remains for us to uphold  the stand taken by the founders of our  order, who,thro ugh then foresight, have  seen the approach, of the condition that  is fast coming on. flow to meet it is a  question that should be-given your ear-  Says the Toronto Telegram: No danger to the British Columbia treasury is  involved in the Martin Government's  proposal to build a government railway  from the coast to the Koot,:iiay.  British Columbia should be the first  province in the Dominion to show that  it costs no more to build a road with the  public resources for the people themselves than to build a road with the  public resources for Mackenzie & Maun.  There is an old saying to the effect  that a man with S50 and the public aid  could have built every transcontinental  line in the United States. The $50  would have paid the ''capitalist's'' hotel  bill while he was waiting for the subsi-.!  dies which were the foundations of tin  scheme for financing every transcontinental railway.  British Columbia's new government  proposes to take the subsidies in land  and money,which have been demanded j  by private promoters of the railway ;  from,the coast to the Kootenay.and put ;  these resources into railway work in-'!  stead of into the pockets of subsidy j  grabbers.
