 I*��.  ���\  /XA^/Vv^A^^  -^yfjmL^^mlmVyj  Volume V.   No. 34.  NEW DENVER, B. C, MAY 26, 1898.  Price, $2 00 Year  A GLORIOUS DAY  Ideal Weather for the  24th  was Greatly Enjoyed.  CELEBRATING AT SILVERTON.  The weather clerk has started out well  this season furnishing holiday zephyrs  and sunshine. After tv,o or three days  of storm and cloud and threatening  weather, the 24th opened bright and  warm, and from the first rays of morning light till the setting of the sun, not  a rippled disturbed the placid surface of  the lake other than those caused by the  boats going hither and thither carrying  pleasure seekers and picnic parties to  places of pleasure and rest. Some sought  the seclusion of the woods, others took  to the hills, but the groat majority in  the lake towns spent the day in Silverton  and helped to make the celebration there  a success. From New Denver quite a  crowd went to Kaslo with the band and  football team.  Silverton's celebration was not the success its citizens wanted it to be, but those  that attended���100 from Slocau City, 100  from New Denver, 50 from Nelson and  probable 50 from Sandon and Three  Forks���greatly enjoyed the sports and  the hospitality of the Silverton  people,  for which our sister town is prominently  commended. The failure to secure the  services of the Denver band and the football team detracted considerablyTrom  the exercises of the day, and made the  crowd much smaller than it otherwise  would have been. But overshadowing  this is the fact that Kaslo held a celebration of greater magnitude and offered  greater inducements to pleasure seekers.  Silvertonians ought to learn, and undoubtedly will learn, that in getting up  a celebralion, it is unwise to place the  matter in the hands of committeemen  whose false position would antagonize  rather than harmonize local institutions.  Bitterness is expressed at the refusal of  the New Denver band to accept the  terms laid down by the committee, and  many false stories are circulated that are  most unjust to the band and its leader.  These, of course, will not go far for  the New Denver band boys are sufficiently known to dispel any such unpleasantness, but the blame of the  busines should be placed where it belongs. AVithout going into the details  of the matter, it is sufficient to say that  j     The 16 pound shot could not be found  and the contest was called off.  Tossing the telegiaph pole was great  passtime for the strong men. J. J. Mc-  Intire'8 best toss was 31 feet G, Neil  Mclnnis 30-5, J. Anderson 28-2, J.  Bowes 30-1, Jack Harvey 30-2, Mike  Gradey 32.  The horse race was the most interesting feature of the day's sports. Six  entries were made: A. P. McDonald's  Dexter, S. Thomas' Delfine, P. Angri  non's Billy, L. 11. Forbes' Flash,  Hammond's Gray Bell, Jas. Bowes Fred.  Dexter was the favorite, but Fred took  first money. Second money was divided  between Dexter and Gray Bell, both  taking a heat for second place.  The green or poney race was won by  the Buckskin colt.  The football match failed to arouse any  interest. Silverton was too much for  Slocan City and were better able to play  on the small grounds.  The drilling contest was a great disappointment. Three entries were made:  "CandlestieklJim" Murphy and "Hobo"  Kelly, Dwyer and Anson, and, Estabrooks  and Ryan. Murphy and Kelly put down  the first hole 29>4 inches; Dwyer and  Anson followed, using the same steel,  and put the hole down 29%, but  ��� the whole thing was such a clear cut  scheme to get first and second money  that the judges called the contest oi'f  after the first hole was put down and  only one purse was paid over.  A ball in the evening winded up the  days celebration.  DENVERITES -AND     NEIGHBORS  ."��� Jack Madigan has moved his stock to  Ymir.  Dick was in New Denver  Alexander  last week.

It was very much enjoyed by a good audience, and the wish  has been expressed that they return to  New Denver again.  The band boya came home Wednesday  with colors flying and instruments filled  with musical wind. The football team  lost to Kaslo 1 to 0. The baseball game  resulted in a hand to hand scrimmage in  Sandon's favor. The Nelson band was  also in attendance, but the New Denver  boys carried off the honors.  Good news is brought down from the  Speculator, Springer creek. A crosscut  has been run in the, past two weeks  showing the ledge to be 33 feet of highly  mineralized stuff, with five ore stringers  running through it.' Assays have been  made of tlie rock and run from 125 to  148 ozs. silver and as high as 59 per cent,  lead. Work will be continued. It is  situated just above the *4rlington.  Mr. and Mrs. Aylard returned from  Los Angeles, Cal., Tuesday evening,  gteatly pleased with their trip yet glad  to reach home in little New Denver,  where possibly the flowers do not bloom  so profusely and the trolly cars move  less swiftly, but where peace and quiet  reig-n supremely and there is not the  hustle and bustle of California life to disturb one's peaceful slumbers.  THE PRACTICAL PROSPECTOR.  The troopers saluted, the drums and  bugles rang* out, the air was filled with  loud acclamations, and all was jubilation and excitement as Mother Marv  Teresa rose, her face suffused witli  blushes, and asked:  "General, are you done?"  "Yes " said he.  "Then T will go back to the hospital!"  Silverton's committe had the refusal of  the band up to the last moment at $50  and expenses���its home price���and that-  after accepting and advertising the fact  on its bills, the committe sent up an  ultimatum that only $35 and expenses  would be paid. When this arbitrary  step was taken the band considered itself  at liberty to consider negotiations open  elsewhere, with the result that Kaslo  gave it $125 for the day. As to the football team, it is only necessary to state  that inany of the players are also members of the band.  The Slocan City band was in attendance at Silverton. The sports of the  day began shortly after 11 o'clock. The  single scull race was won by li. Covington over L. U'lieilly, and" the double  scull by Covington and Henderson over  lieid and Driseoll. No entries were  made for tho canoe race.  There were nine entries in the 100  yard dash and a pretty race might have  been witnessed had a better start been  made. The entries were .1. S. Gustev, B.  Cliffe, A. S. Williamson, S. Webb, 0.  Kesler, J. Mclntire, G. Maybe, C. Brett  and Fred. Mitchell. Mitchell took first,  Maybe second money.  Prospectors race declared off.  In the hurdle race some line sprinting  was done, Thos. Henderson loading  Gustie and Mitchell. Mitchell took  second.  Only three entries were made in the  boys race, but it was a hot one. li. McMillan led R. Hood several feet leaving  J. Delaney behind. He was outclassed.  The sack race was amusing; Gustev  took first money, C. Brett second and li.  G. McLeod fell down.  There are no fat men in Silverton that  can run, at least they refused to show  themselves when the race was called.  In the broad jump Gustey won first  on 11 foot 2>��, Ike Thompson second at  11-11. Maybe's longest jump was 9-4,  Robbins 9-9.  Gustey won the running broad jump  on 19 feet. Nichols took second on  17-2K. Maybe's longest jump was 10-4^,  W. C~ Davies 15-0.  Some pretty  pole  vaulting was done.  R. G. McLeod came up from Nelson and  walked over the stick  at 8 feet as easily  as at 5.    Maybe fell out at 7, W. Telford,  ��� R. Nichol and J. Pinch back at 7-8.  Gustey walked off with iirst money in  the running high jump, over R. Nichol  who could not jump at all.  The ground was poor for hop, step and  leap, but Henderson stretched out  38-11K, Gusty 38-2, Nichol 35-1 Davies  31-1.

The practical prospector is rapidly  taking the place of the ignorant and  inexperienced, says the Mining and  Scientific Press. He has paid for his  knowledge, not by years in the management of paying properties, but by  years of loss mixed up with his gains,  to indeliblyiimpresshis experience upon  his mental faculties. "It is a business to  which few are adapted and fewer still  are successful. There is nothing in the  business world- that requires such a  wide .range."-of: knowledge as that of  mining and prospecting. The practical  prospector of to-day understands every  detail of the solfataric, dynamic and  chemical factors most effective in the  world's past periods of universal formation. He has learned that while heat,  water and vapors have produced  deposits in veins and otherwise, many  of which have proven valuable, that  the greater part of the great bonanzas  of the world are always in connection  with two of the six principal divisions  of igneous i'nd eruptive rocks���tachyte  and felsyte���the former generally lying  in great fields and trunncated masses,  the latter in dykes and in overflows and  older formations. These again have  been divided into various characteristics, owing to the period of eruption  or subsequent metamorphism, all of  which have been instrumental in mineralizing the adjoining country rockslin  veins and deposits. The secrets ofthe  success of the modern prospector and  mine manager lie in his knowledge of  the dates and effects of the porphyry  overflows and intrusions.  LARGOEST  SILVER   NUGGKT.  Probably the largest nugget or mass  of silver ever mined was a piece weighing 1,340 pounds, which was taken from  the Smuggler mine, Aspen, Colo., in  1894. in jregard to this nugget, S.I.  Hallet, of the Smuggler mine, writes to  Mines and Minerals:  ���'The nugget in question formed part  of a consignment of i.5,031 pounds of  ore, which with silver at 58 cents or  thereabouts netted us, free and clear of  all expenses, very close to SS2,000.  This particular nugget was gotten out  by itself, and seemed to be extremely  pure, so that I photographed it. It was  impossible to assay it in the ordinary  acceptation of the word, and it was put  directly into crucibles and the crucible  return's given to ms by the company.  The smelting* charges on such ore were  naturally high.  "This streak of silver occurred as a  core in some very rich ore, averaging  about 1,000 ounces per ton. At times  it Avo.uld be a half an inch in thickness,  and then widen out to two and a half  feet. It wad a little purer than a silver  dollar and almost as bright. We were  obliged to mine by. the side of it, allowing it to hang down into the stope until  we had reached a natural crack or very  thin place, when we could break it off.  It extended along the stope for 20 or 30  feet in height, was three or four feet in  length, width as given.  ��� "As.to just how it was made it is hard  fpr me to give a theory. It was sometimes found.!crystallised in connection  with argehtite, which might lead one to  think that it had simply been arg*entite,  and that by the enormous pressure  exerted on it the sulphur had been expelled. Again, I found pieces in which  the outer surface was a very thick mass  of wire silver practically welded together, which would, of course, account for  it in a verv different wav."  Larsen, of Slocan City.   The addresses  on   both   envelopes   were   written   in  large, firm, legible characters, betraying  no   tremor   of   emotion   although  evidently performed immediately previous to the overt act of self-destruction.  No other  letters  were   found   about  the apartment, but the coat contained a  pocket   book,   empty so   far as legal  tender   was concerned, but holding a  few love letters,   a photo of a woman  with an unprepossessing face bearing  the unmistakable stamp of the wanton,  and some P. O.  monej*" order receipts,  the collateral for which had been sent  to Mrs. B. J. Rankin,' High River, Alberta, and later   to   the same name at  Sand Creek, Mont.   The obvious cause  of the man's despondency and final rash  act was traceable to a letter of recent-  date in which the object of his adoration  disclaimed all feelings of honest love toward her ardent admirer, expressing  regret that she   should have been  the  means of   casting a shadow   across his  path and declaring a firm intention to  forthwith cease all communication with  a man of whose affections she was altogether unwm-tbv  CAMPAIGN CLUB  New  Denver   has   Another  Good Institution  ORGANIZED   WITH   40  MEMBERS  EAST CANADIAN NEWS.  A   DELIBERATE   SUICIDE.  Ben    Rankin Kills  Himself in Sandon���  A Woman in the Case as Usual.  HEROISM.  Kenzie   and   Miss   Jessie   Glover    was i arms'  In the presence of all the French  troops guarding the capital of Tonquin  the Governor-General recently bestowed the Cross of the Legion of Honor on  Mother Mary Teresa, Superioress of the  Sisters of Charity in that empire. The  troops were drawn up in the little plaza  of the city in a square surrounding a  nlatform on which were the Governor-  General and his staff.  The General, in a solemn and impress  sive tone, addressed her as follows  "Mother Mary Teresa, when you  were twenty years of age you received  a wound from a cannon ball while  assisting* one of the wounded on the field  of Balaklava. In 1859 the shell from a  mitral louse laid you prostrate in the  front rank on the battlefield of Magenta.  Since then you have, been in Syria, in  China, and in Mexico, and if you were  not wounded it was not because you  have not exposed yourself.  "In 1870 you were taken up in Reis-  choffen covered with many sabre  wounds Such deeds of heroism you  have crowned a few days ago with one  ofthe most heroic actions which history  records. A grenade fell upon the ambulance which was under your charge  ���you took up the ��*renade in your  arms, you smiled upon the wounded  who looked at you with feeling's of dismay, you carried it a distance of eighty  metre's- On laying it down you noticed  it was going to burst: pou threw yourself on the ground; it burst: you were  seen covered with blood, but when persons came to your assistance vou rose  up smiling, as is your wont, Vou were  scarcely recovered from your wound  when you returned to the hospital  whence. I have now summoned you."  Then the General Imade hoi* kneel  down, and, drawing his sword, touched  her lightly with it three times on the  shoulder and pinned the Cross of the  Legion of Honor on her habit, saying  with a quivering voice:  "I put upon you the cross ofthe brave,  in the name of the French people and  aruiv; no one has gained it by more  deeds of heroism, n��r by a life so completely spent in self-abnegation for the  benefit of your brothers and the service  of  your   country,     Soldiers!   present  Probably the most deliberate suicide  ever committeed in British Columbia  was that of Ben Rankin, who killed  himself in the Bartlet hotel, Sandon,  last week.  Rankin, who was pretty well-known in  the Slocan, came to British Columbia  from Calgary a little over a year ago  and located in Slocan City. A few  weeks ago he came to Sandon and has  since, and up to the time of his death,  been staying at the Bartlett.  Though of a morose disposition he  was generally considered a rather levelheaded   and" sensible man, and by no  unusual or irrational utterance betrayed  that he contemplated any precipitate  action.    On   the   day   previous to  his  demise he  went   auout as usual and  during the evening engaged in a friendly   jumping  contest. in   front   of  the  Bartlett house,  watched the   hose-reel  practice and incidentally engaged in a  little black jack.   About midnight, in  company with J. W. Lowes, he had supper at the Palace Cafe and shortly after  returned to the Bartlett,  engaged in a  few moments conversation on the usual  topics of the day and a few minutes lie-  fore two o'clock borrowed a lead pencil  from  Jack   Lowes   and   retired to his  room, No. 3, just above the bar.   Conversation   lagged   and they who were  sitting  about   the  club room  became  drowsy when they were suddenly startled by a loud report which they were at  a loss to explain.   Some attributed it to  the  bursting of   a  champagne bottle,  others to some  defect  in the waterpipo  and a few jokes were being engaged in  about Spaniards when they were suddenly   brought   to   seriousness   by    a  groan   from  the  floor above.    Lowes  rushed to Rankin's room and found him  lying on the bed with an ugly wound in  liis breast from  which  blood  was flowing.    Dr. Power  was called  instanter,  but pronounced the wound fatal and the  unfortunate man died in a few moments  without speaking.  The disposition of the articles of clothing and other arrangements about the  room showed a most deliberate and premeditated case of suicide. Coat, vest,  shoes and hat, with very evident care,  had been neatly arranged on a chair  close beside the bed. An open grip lay  against the wall, within four feet of the  victim's head and a heavy 44 calibre  Colts navy revolver lay among a few  articles of linen and underwear where  it had been evidently thrown after  effecting* its fatal mission. Two envelopes were lying on the dressing  stand one addressed to "My Friend,  Jack Lowes," containing the decease's  watch, a large gold Waltham, with a  heavy plated chain attached: the other,  with a heavy gold ring of rather unique  desiini      enclosed, addressed  to J.

Political circles are  also much exercised as to who will fill  the vacancy in North Simcoe.  Large shipments of sulphur are being  made from Montreal to the United  States. It is claimed that as sulphur is  used in the manufacture of explosives it  is contraband of war, but as it is also  used in the manufacture of pulpwood  the collector of customs does not look  upon it as contraband.  An old lady named Mrs. May was  killed in a very sad manner on May 7th.  It appears that as she was walking along  the C.P.R. track at Peterborough, Ont.,  a train approached, whereupon she tried  to leave the track, but her foot caug'ht  in a wedge plant and held her fast. The  train struck her, killing her almost instantly.  A report is current that the Ottawa  Government is about to lay before the  House a bill creating a territoral government in the Yukon, similiar to that now-  existing in the North-West Territories,  with a lieutenant-governor and advisor}'  board and a complete outfit of officers  for the administration of justice and the  maintenance of law and order.  The Standard Oil Company intends  sending 200,000 gallons of kerosene up  the Yukon River this summer. The  company has purchased a 175-foot Yukon  river steamer and a large barge, which  will be delivered at St. Michael in June.  The oil will be sold through establishing  trading companies at Dawson City,  Circle City and other place, at $1.0''a  gallon.  A great catch of fish was made last  week by the Canadian Governmentoruis-  er Petrel. Six nets containing some  tons of fish belonging to parties from the  United States were found by the cruiser  in Lake Erie, on the Canadian side.  Captain Drenn, of the Petrel, gave the  fish to the residents or Am-  herstburg, where the nets were towed  after the seizure.  Tlie present Spanish-American war is  sending back to Canada many car  loads of French-Canadians, who have  been residing in the United States tho  past few years. They say that il is on  account of being afraid of being compelled to enlist in the United States army  that they have returned, and on account  of tlie standstill at which business has  arrived. Many factories are closed and  wages are reduced.  Saturday night a largely attended  meeting was held in Clever's hall of a  political nature. Wm. Thomlinson was  called to the chair and stated the objects  of the meeting to be the organizing of a  political club or association to discuss  and formulate plans of campaign for the  approaching election, to the end that the  co-operation of all towns in the Slocan  and Slocan City mining divisions could  be secured and used toward the election  of men to the Provincial parliament who  would best serve the interests of the  section. The meeting was most harmonious and those present were enthusiastic over its objects and purposes.  The discussion of the merits or demerits of any candidate or prospective  candidate, or any party, were prohibited  at this meeting.  The following resolution setting forth  the objects of New Denver's citizens was  passed:  Whereas, As it is necessary that the  towns on this side of the Slocan Divide  should act in combination, to protect  and advance their interests, therefore  the citizens of New Denver pledge themselves not only to work for their own  interests in the approaching election,  but to work equally hard to promote the  legitimate interest1" of the sister towns of  Silverton;' Slocan City, Sandon, Three  Forks, Rosebery, Aylwin and all other  towns in the Slocan and Slocan City  Mining Divisons.  After a general discussion of the needs  and interests of the Slocan by Mr.  Fauquier, Mr. Hunter, of Silverton, and  Mr. Kerr, it was moved by Mr. Kerr:  Whereas, it has always been the custom  to make each gold commissioner a sti-  pendary magistrate, assistant commissioner of land and works, government  agent and county court registrar, and  Whereas, it is of particular importance  that the Gold Commissioner of this district should have all those offices, therefore this meeting calls upon the government to confer the above offices on the  Gold Commissioner of this district without delay.  This motion was backed up by another  requesting the chairman and secretary  to sign and forward to the proper official  in Victoria a copy of the resolution.  The queston of permanent organization then came up and "The New Denver  Campaign Political Club," with Win.  Thomlinson as president is the result of  subsequent motions, with a membership  of 40 voters, all of whom handed in their  names at the meeting.  The objects of the club will be to inaugurate any movement looking to tlie  protection and advancement of the interests of the Slocan, in securing proper  representation in the government and  proper laws protecting the district.  Messrs. Fauquier and Kerr were elected delegates to meet delegates from  Slocan City, Silverton, Kaslo, Sandon  and Three Forks, for the purpose of  forming a general coalition of all  elements in the several towns to secure  the objects set forth.  Meetings of the club will be held every  Saturday night and will be addressed by  candidates for and against the government, it being the general opinion of  the members that no move should be  made to support any candidate until all  have had a hearing, when, if possible a  conilunation will be effected with sister  towns on the  most promising candidate.  no    <;on>    THIS    YK.-VIS.  The second trial of Mrs. Olive Sterna-  man for the alleged poisoning of her  husband came to an end on Saturday  night last, and the result is that Mrs.  Sternaman is once more free,after an imprisonment of 20 months. The trial  took place at Cayuga, Ont., and occupied  several days. Tlie jury were four hours  deliberating over her case before they  could arrive at a decision. Mrs. Sterna-  man's counsel in this, her second trial,  was Mr. E. F. B. Johnston. The Crown  counsel was Mr. B. B. Osier, the great  criminal lawyer.  Al. Bartlett, formerly  of  Sandon, has  recently come out  from  Dawson and   is  on his way to Ottawa.    He says   that no  gold will be   brought out  from   Dawson  via the Yukon this year.    This, he says,  will be owing to the  extreme low water  which will prevail.    The water, he says,  will reach a lower point than has existed  for   the   last   11   years.    The  principal  mine   owners   have    made   themselves  cognizant   of   this, and   will,   he states,  take no   chances   on   sending  out iheir  gold by way of the  Yukon.    It  will   be  reserved   for   an expedition which   will  come out about themiddleof next winter  over the ice.

THE WOKLD'S GLADSTONE DEAD.  With the death of England's grand  old commoner the Gladstone ofthe  world has passed away. No actor on  the sta#*e of life during the last half  century has occupied so prominent a  place in the public eye as Gladstone.  The part which he played in the  drama is well known. A man who  was as humble before his God as he  was powerful over his fellows; as  earnest and simple as a child in his  daily prayers for guidance, yet as  firm and unflinching" as his mind was  mighty and ponderous. Gladstone  was a giant. Common men the world  over pause before the majestic height  of his intellect and the great strength  of his character in admiration arid  respect.  Gladstone has not been a consistent  man in public life, nor free from serious errors. Inheriting strong sympathies with the Conservatives, he  became ultimately a , leader ot the  Liberals. But it is probably not so  much his public works that has endeared the man to the hearts of all  people as it is his personality. He  was a God-fearing man. He was  above all else a man of deep convict  tions; he never faltered when he  knew his duty, and never sacrificed  one iota of what he believed to be  right for the plaudits of his people.  He was powerful. His was a mastermind. It was the force of his great  intellect and the strength of his resolute will which gave him his power  at home and his .influence, abroad.  How thoroughly he dominated the  party which he led is evidenced by  the absence of such leadership since  he left active public life. The Liberal  party does not lack men of ability,  men who are quite as astute, perhaps  as Mr. Gladstone, but none of them  seem to possess the ability to dominate the political thought of the time  as he did.  to furnish'work for the people. A few  minutes after, I heard another say that  he was selling a patent for cutting out  clothes���that one of the machines could  do the work of 20 tailors, that only the  week before he had sold two to a great  house in New York, and that -10 cutters  had been discharged.  On every side men are being discharged arid machines are being invented to take their places. When the  the great factory shuts down, the workers who inhabit it and gave it life, as  thoughts do the brain, go away, and it  stands there like an empty skull. A  few workmen by force of habit gather  about the closed doors and broken  windows and talk about distress, the  price of food and the coining winter.  Thev are convinced that they have not  had'their share of what their labor  created. They feel certain that the  machines inside were not their friends.  The look at the mansion of the employer, and think of the placet where they  live. Thev have saved nothing���nothing but themselves. The employer  seems to have enough. Even when  emi'lovers fail, when they become  bankrupt, they are far better off than  the laborers every where. Their worst  is better than the toilers'best.  The capitalist comes forward with his  specific. He tells the working-man that  he must be economical���and yet, under  present system, economy would not  lessen wages. Under the great law of  supplv aiul demand, every saving,  frugal, self-denying workman is unconsciously doing what he.can to reduce  the compensation of himself and his  workmen. The slaves who did not wish  to run awav helped fasten chains on  those whG-did^ So the-sarv-ing mechanic  is a certificate that the wages are high  enough. Does the great law demand  that every worker should live on the  least possible amount of bread? Is it  fate to work one day that he may get  enough food to be able to work another? It that to be his hope, that and  ���death?  Capital has always claimed, and still  claims, the right to combine. Manufacturers meet and determine prices,  even in spite of the great law of supply  and demand. Have the laborers the  same right to consult and combine?  The rich meet in the bank, clubhouse  or parlor. Working men, when they  combine, gather in the street. All the  organized forces of society are against  them. Capital has the army and navy,  the legislature, the judicial and execu  tive departments. When the rich combine it is for the purpose of "exchanging  It is impossible for a man with a good  heart to be satisfied with this world as  it now is. No man can truly enjoy  what he earns���"vrhat he knows to be  his own���knowing that millions of his  fellowmen are in misery and want.  When we think of the famished we  think that it is almost heartless to eat.  To meet the ragged and shivering^  makes one almost ashamed to be well  dressed and warm���one feels as though  his heart was as cold as their bodies.  In a world filled with millions and  millions of acres of land waiting* to be  tilled, where one man can raise the food  for hundreds, millions are on the edge  of famine. Who can comprehend the  stupidity at the bottom of this truth?  Are the ' la.vsof supply and demand,"  invention and science, monopoly and  competition, capital and legislation,  always to be the enemies of those who  toil? Will the workers always be ignorant enough to give their earning to the  useless? Will they support millions of  soldiers to kill the sons of other work-  inginen? Will they always build  temples and livein huts and dens themselves? Will.they forever allow parasites, and vampires to live upon their  blood? Will they remain the slaves of  the beggars they support? Will honest  men stop taking off their hats to successful fraud? Will industry, in the  presence of crowned idleness, forever  fall on its knees, and will the lips unstained by lies forever kiss the robed  impostor's hand? Will they understand  that beggars cannot be generous, and  that every healthy man must earn the  right to live? Will they finally say that  the man who has had equal privileges  with all others has no right to complain,  or will they follow the exam pie that has  been set by their oppressors?. Will they  learn that'force, to succeed, must have  thought behind it, and that anything  done, in order that it may endure, must  rest upon the cornerstone of justice ?  ink of Moot ir  Established   1817.

"A housedivided against itself cannot  stand," is both, logical'and true, and  based upon the mathematical proposition of exact truth. . To illustrate: A  partnership, which is a relation of contract (the essence of which is agreement) is formed, in which two people  engage in selling certain kinds of goods  or commodities. One of them wants to  do certain things in a certain way; the  other in an entirely different way. Because of disagreement partnership no  longer exists, and should such disagreement continue to exist, the partnership  becomes- null  and   void   for  want of  ideas.  THE C. V. JR. MEANS BUSINESS.  When the C. P. R. is forced to meet  competition it does so with a determination to win.    The company's late  activity in the Trail creek is evidence  of this fact.   Two lead stacks are to  be constructed at Trail.     The company proposes to sn^olt the ores of the  Slocan, and will brook no competition  from any source, .   They are in a position   to  transport- and   treat ores  cheaper than any other individual or  corporation.    Two lead furnaces have  been ordered, and general details for  the new plant are complete.     At the  smelter everything is in a state of  activity, and the work already done  shows wonderful changes.    It is useless to ask when the smelter will be  blown in, but of course not until'there  is sufficient roasted ore on hand.  One  roast heap is ready to fire,   and  the  big Blake crusher is working steadily.    The old  reverberatory furnaces  have been torn  down,   and  two additional blasts will be erected, making four in all,   with  a capacity  of  500 tons daily.     There  will also  be  one reverberatory for matte refining.  About 100 tons of ore are being received daily from the War Eagle and :  Centre Star, and soon the War Eagle i  shipments   will  cover   that amount j  alone. j  Bids for   the   construction   of the j  Columbia &  Western  railroad from j  Robson to Midway in the Boundary'  country, a distance of 100 miles, will i  be opened June 15th.    The road will  cost about $3,000,000.   and Trail is to  be the point of disbursement for all  money connected therewith.    The C.  P. R.   offices in  Trail  are  crowded  with   draughtmen    and    engineers  rushing work with ail possible speed.  Mackenzie & Mann, Winters, Parsons  When the poor combine it is  a "conspiracy."   If they defend themselves it it "treason."  "How is it that  the rich control the departments of the  government?    In  this    country    the  political  power    is    equally    divided  among men.   There are certainly more  poor than rich.   Why should the rich  control?   Why should not the laborers  combine for the purpose of controlling  the executive, the legislative and judicial   department?   Will   they ever  find  how powerful they are?

Again, take the relation of marriage.  Marriage signifies a union between two  people; and the solemnization of the  marriage between the two is simply  the recognition by society of such union  as had before taken place in each heart  through their love for each other. "But;"  says Amos, (see Bible) the "two cannot  walk together except they be agreed "  In fact, they walk very much separately, for imarriage does'not exist except  there be agreeriient  Again, take a trades-union. Its basis  is harmony and unity. When divisions  and schisms, jealousies and strifes  enter, it is no longer a trades-union,but  a trades-division. Then, again, as to  its mathematical correctness. Divide a  unit into two equal parts of one-half; let  them be divided against each other,and  nothing remains. And the result is  that in the division of the unit the unit  no linger exists.  Thus we see that our system of coin-  petition is one of subtraction and division, while the principle of co-operation  is one of addition and multiplication.  According- to a saying of the day,  "Competitionisthelife of trade." This'is  a black and brutal lie. To prove it to  be a fact it must be shown that two subtracted from two leave J more than before such subtraction; that a house  divided against itself is most fully able  to stand securely against the cyclones  and hurricanes and the violent tempests  of the day; and that disagreements in  marital life instead of being* productive  of family dissensions, disruptions and  divorce are productive of mutual happiness and harmony.  "Competition is the life of trade.-'  Very well! Let those who will, be  seduced by this sophistical incantation, but I say unto you: Go to the  4,000,000 tramps who are now wandering throughout the length and breadth  of the land; go to the mortgaged home:  of our great country, from which men,  women and children are driven into the  highways and by-ways���the man and  the boy'to become criminals upon tne  face of the earth, the woman and the  girl to sink into lives of shame and degradation; go to the coal mines of  Pennsylvania where the "waves of pros-  perity'' so much mouthed about have  been transformed in to seas of human  blood through helpless, defenseless people being shot in the back by cowardly  assassins shielded and sheltered under  the full panoply and protection of the  law; go to the "Eastern factories that  were to be opened with such hysteric  eagerness under a prosperity-manufacturing (?) administration; go to the  sweat-shops of the world and the slums  of our great cities and see our little  children, pinched and wan,over-worked  and underfed, feeble in body and health  through the lack of good and nutritious  food: go to the mercantile failures of today that strew the land with corpses of  the financial dead���and ask them all if  "competition is the life of trade!"  "A tree is known   by its fruits"���and  these are the  legitimate fruits of competition.    Go to  the S'5,000 now in  the  jails of  the  United States  of America;  go  to   the   185,000   people now in the  almshouses; go to the 500,000 prostitutes  : in our country; go to the 83.000 persons  I annually killed by this inhuman system  ; of  a  super-refined  barbarity,  many of  whom are children   under   five years of  age butchered, assassinated  and  murdered by that  which   is the life of the  nineteenth   century   trade;   go  to   the  180,000 inmates of'our mad-houses today; go to the 4,000,000 infants who are  compelled to   work   to   help eke out a  miserable existence for themselves and  parents; go to the 2,000 babies   found  last  year in New York city in ash-barrels, alleways, vaults,  etc.,  etc.; go to  the dead   and   the   dying; go   to   the  graves of our suicides and   there while  weeping tears   of briny woe ask each  and all if   "competition is the life of  trade!"  For it is a fact that the colossal humbug which we call the system of competition, "the best system that the  world   ever   saw.   sir," is   a tower of  Babel rising into the domain of anarchy bnil (led and founded upon the  bending bones of babes, the bleaching  skeletons and skulls ol'infantile humanity���skulls that now are whitening upon  the prairies of nineteenth century commercialism; and our criminals, prostitutes, paupers, madmen, and butchered  babes, etc., etc.,are the sacrifices which  we, in our superstition and idolatry,  render unto the supreme object of our  worship, the Golden Calf or Competition.  "Competition is the life of trade!" It  is a black and brutal lie! It is the death  of trade, the death of honesty,of beauty,  of virtue, of truth; of morality, of life!  It is the death of childhood's most  innocent joys, of motherhood's purest  chasity, of fatherhood's grandest, inspirations'! It is the death of all that is  noble and pure and excel'ent in civilization; and in the curse of greed it holds  the world in pawn to a'most ignoble  concept.  Through this competitive struggle for  existence two great evils have arisen  which effects every individual member  of society to a. greater or less extent.  Adulteration and prostitution. For  through the eating of adulterated food,  the drinking of adulterated liquors, the  wearing of inferior and shoddy clothing  we become diseased and injuriously  affected; and through the evils of prostitution, sexual, physical, intellectual  and moral we become corrupt and vile  In our physical body, slaves and hypocrites in our debauchery of thought.  Sexual prostitution is what is usually  called prostitution; physical prostitution  is the overworking of the physical body;  intellectual and I moral prostitution is  what is generally termed hypocrisy.  The intellectual "prostitutes are the  journalists, college professors and persons of intellect who sell their brains  for hire to the advocacy of superstition  which would damn and enslave the  people. The moral prostitutes of the  day. are: more especially the clergy,  those white-tied gentlemen with the  prefix "Reverend' to their names, who  "steal the livery of heaven to serve the  devil in." And in iriy humble estimation the intellectual "and moral prostitutes are far worse than the merely  sexual.  But the climax of competition is war !  The civilization of to-day is under the  reign of blood, the rule of butchery; it  is the era of brutality, the air filled with  thunder, discontent and violence; and  as long as corporation and monopoly  privileges exist war will be. War is  the logical fruit of our competitive  system of industry.  ' Napoleon, the first butcher of his time  in Europe, said: "War is the pastime  of barbarians." Gen. U.S. Grant said:  "War is hell !"  In 1892 this "pastime of barbarians,"  this "hell of war," was seen in labor  revolts in Berlin, Hanover, Leipzie,  Vienna and other cities; in this country  in' armed conflicts in Tennessee, at  Homestead,Penn ; in Idaho and Wyoming, and at Buffalo, N.Y., and every  year brings us disturbances of this  character iii which working-men strikers  are on one side and the militia on the  other.  War is competion for supremacy upon  the field of battle through the use of  weapons of destruction and death. Competition 'is war in the mercantile field  of activity; a battle for-supremacy in  the realm of commerce or finance; a  struggle for existence in the labor marts  of the world.  Is competition moral? Is hell holy?  Is a diseased body healthy? Is an insane mind sound?  John* A. Morius.  Los Angeles, Cal.  c. s.  KAS1IU,  Xntsirv  iLL.  Public.  A."K. FAUQUIER.

We have harked unto tales of battle
From the lips of women who knew,
A t the knee of our gracious mother
We caught the wail of the day
AVhen brother marched on brother.
And "The Blue went down with "The Grey.
We have heard in a breathless muddle,
The booming of hungry truns,
We have known the woe'of tlie Nation
In the madness of her sons,
We have sickened at the carnage.
We have seen the brave blood flow
As our girlish mothers saw it,
Thirty—forty years ago.
With their eyes, we have seen it.
The sun-baked village street,
The passing "homespun." regiment,
The tramp of the precious feet,
Our dogged, dust-grimed heroes,
The slender lines that tiled
Beyond tbe heart-sick women.
Who set their teeth—and smiled.
They say that we soon shall covet,
The blue of a smokeless sky,
The days of "getting and spending"
To-morrow may be put. by,
The days of peace and of promise,
Put by witli an iron hand—
We have learned of war from our mothers,
And we'll try to understand.

And call on the God of Battles,

That this cup may pass us by. '       '   ,..
Our stalely ships to a peaccful'soa,
Our homes to a peaceful sky,
But if on the Nation's shoulders
This grevioits cross be laid.
'Twill be hand in hand to tlie will of tin- Land,
Till the uttermost wrong be paid.
And all of "solf'andof "party."
And all of "trick" and of "fraud."
Will sink in unification—
Country, Bon or and God,
The blood of our "lighting Fathers"
Will surge like a deep-sea wave;
And white-faced girls will be women
And beardless boys will lie brave.
Then up!   Stand up!   My Sisters,
Take hands from the East to the West,
From the Golden Coast, of the threatened South,
To the reef of the Pilgrim's rest.
And call on the God of Battles,
That your cry be not in vain —
For our Anglo-Saxon youngsters
Shall chasten thy pride, 0 Spain !

the wish of her parents. Desiring to return home with her husband, she wrote
to her sister:

A Texas military company whs out
on the   rang-e recently, practicing- at
rifle shooting-.   The lieutenant in command suddenly became exasperated at
the poor  shooting*, and, seizing* a gun
from one of the privates, cried sharply :
"I'll show you fellows how to shoot."
Taking- a long* aim and a strong* aim,
and an aim  altogether, he fired and
missed.   Cooly turning- to the private
who owned the gun he said:
"That's the wav you shoot."
He ag*ain  loaded   the   weapon and
missed.    Turning to the second man in
the ranks he remarked:
"That's the way you shoot."
In this way he missed about a dozen
times, illustratino- to  each soldier his
personal   incapacity,   and   finally   he
accidentally hit the* target.
"And that is the way 1 shoot!" he
ejaculated, handing- the g'un back to the

Gailing an Irish Salmon.
Miekle, '.;;ir in hand, was hopping
aror.'Hi Lt'L;;;'l, i*.-e, more like a wild India;! with a tom:;ht:vk than an experienced Jii.'-ii water bailiff about to im-
p;7(- a siiiiiiou. fiport, too, joined in the
iuictidUK exciU'i'-out-' and jumped at
mv ii-c t and barked at every splash that
tils-: !;ig nsh'iiiade. Down along the river bank tbe cute old bailiff glided and
crept out behind a projecting rock.
. Oi'.iv. I iiimosi; coaxed him .within strik-
ii;;: bVL.ijee. of the one eyed gaffer, but-
Mi: kle prided himself on his skill and
feiivtd ro run the risk of missing his
stroke. Off again dashed the fish across
the pool, as if warned by instinct of the
unseen danger, aud it-was fully ten
minutes ero I had him played back to
the proper point.
Then, like a lightning flash, the cold
st:eJ impaled him, and tbe great,-quivering body was triumphantly lifted on
the gaff by the exultant bailiff, showing a fish as beautiful at* was ever landed. The sheen of his scales and the
small sea lice still clinging to him
showed that he had only just come up
from the salt water. It had taken me
exactly -Hi niinuv.es from the moment
lie was hooked till he lay on the bank,
and he weighed 28 pounds by my pocket scales.
The "thunder and lightning" fly was
carefully extracted from his gullet, for
it had gone down deep, and the bailiff
smiled in -appreciation of the remark;;
on his good judgment of water, weath
er and flies which I felt in duty bound
to make. I had time for only a short
rest in the shade after my exciting experience, when splash! splash! in front

THE    OLD    FOLKS"    LONGING.
Don't go to the theater, lecture or ball,
But stay in your room to-night;
Deny yourself to the friends that call,
And a good, long letter write.
Write to the sad old folks at home.
Who sit, when the day is done,
With folded hands and downcast eyes
And think of the absent one.
Don't selfishly scribble:   -'Excuse my haste ;
I've scarcely the time to write,"
Lest their brooding thoughts j-o wandering back
To many a bygone night,
When they lost, their needed sleep and rest,
And every breath was a prayer
That God would leave their little babe
To their tender love and care.
Don't let them feel that you've no more need
Of their love and council wise,
For the heart grows strangely sensitive
When age has dimmed the 'eyes ;
It might be. well to let them believe
You never forget them (jiiite—
That you deemed it a. pleasure, when faraway,
Long letter home, to write.
Don't think that the young and giddy friends,
Who make your pastime gay.
Have half the anxious thoughts for you
That the old folks have to-day ;
The duty of writing do not putVoff. ,
Let sleep or pleasure wait,
Lest the lettor for which they waited and longed.
Be a day or an hour too late,
Fur the sad old folks at home,
With locks fast turning white,
An: longing to hear of the absent one
So write them a letter to-night.

There is no reason in the world why
men, whether averape  men or men  of
genius, should  despise   the  cooking of
their food.  They never show, or are required to show, the same contempt  toward any other art, and on no other  is
their mental calm more completely dependent.   An ill fitting coat is a worry,
but not such a worry ai dinners perpetually ill dressed. To many men, and especially to men whose work ia oedentaxy
or whoae  brains aie folly taxed, food
which is at onee light and nouriabing is
Md abaolate necessity if they are to exert  their  highest  powers, and  food of

Says an exchange: "Han's Anderson,

years ago, and last week he coughed up a

'"Did you eat that missionary you

Dr. Durness, of Philadelphia, accord-
ino- to Life's Monthly Calendar, tells a
characteristic story about Wendell
Phillips:
Several clergymen boarded a street
car in Boston one day, and one of them
bearing' it intimated that Wendell Phillips was in the car got up and asked the
conductor to point him out. The conductor did so, and the minister going*
up to the orator said:
"You are Mr. Phillips,! am told?''
"Yes, sir."
"I should like to speak to you about
something-, and I trust, sir, you will not
be offended!"
"There is no fear of it," was the
sturdy answer.
Then the minister began to ask Mr.
Phillips earnestly why he persisted in
stirring up such an unfriendly agitation
Last year the Standard Oil Com pan v
paid $32,000,000 in dividends, against
330,000,000 in 1896, and this vear will

"Yes; but it wasn't quite fair!" growled Dan as he stood with the Bible m his  hands.  ' * But the stranger says it was. What  ar' vo' complainih' of, Dan?"  "t'f the Lord. I've lived right yere  for 25 v'ars,and this is the fust and only  time lie has come within 20 miles of this  cabin! 'Teint right to jump right in on  a man all of a suddent, and yo' know it  hain't, and the fust time I catch yo'  without the Lord on yo'r side I'll make  yo'r ribs crack and yb'r heels draw up!"  On the eve of his departure from  Washington one of the members of  Minister Polo's official retinue expressed  regret by significantly referring' to "the  nasty Cubans."  In'this one phrase is embodied much  of tlie view that has been influential in  determining Europe's attitude toward  America from the .very beginning of the  growth on this continent of a new order  of things in the world's social and governmental affairs. It accords in spirit  with the reply which one of the Ministers at London made to a petition from  the early Colonists of Virginia. After  these hardy pioneers had driven the  Indians back from the coast and had  cleared the forest they forwarded a  petition to the throne at London for permission to erect houses of worship, in  which they could "exalt their souls."  Quick as the means of communication  of that day could bring answer the  British Minister replied in words to this  effect: "Your souls? Damn your souls  ���plant tobacco!"  Great Britain has learned something  of Americans and American institutions  and purposes since then. The chief  fault with Spain seems to be that with  relation to the New World and the New  World people she is to-day where England was (when, 200 years ago, her  Cabinet answered to the Virginia Colonists.

Away up on the crust of the Cumberland range I sat talking and smoking  with a mountaineer in front of his cabin  after the humble meal :called supper,  when native came down the trad on a  mule and halted to saw  "Howdy, Dan?   Folks all peart?"  '���Yes, rather peartish," was the reply-  "Got a Bible yet?"  "Noap."  ���'I'm a selliu' Bibles for a dollar now."  "Hain't got no dollar to buy with."  "Shoo! Say, Dan Hawkins, yo' orter  to hev a Bible in the house. It's monstrous like heathen not to hev a Bible.  Yd' jess orter be ashamed of yo'self."  "1 reckon I kin git along."'  The, man on the nude was a combination of preacher, circuit rider and colporteur, and lie seemed considerably  chagrined at not making a sale. He  presently got off his mule and began to  take, off his coat, and then mine host inquired:  "What >'<>' gwine to do, Tom?"  "Look-a-ycre, Dan Hawkins,, yo' has  gin out that no man in this country has  ever laid yo' on yo'r back!"  "That's true."  "If I lay vo' thar' will vo' buv a  Bible?"  "1 will."  "Then with tne help 0' the Lord, Fin  goin' to do it! The scriptur' says that  tin; stiff-necked and high-headed must  be brought low. and that's whar I'm  goin' to bring yo'. Come out vere and  he hi id!"  "Tom, ye, can't do it���can't do it nohow!" replied the settler as he rose up  and prepared for the conflict.  "I ve got to, Dan!" said the preacher  as he pulled off his vest. "I commanded by the Lord to sell yo' a Bible, and  the Lord will strengthen mv arms to  lay yo' flat!"  They dodged around for a minute  looking for an opening, and then the  preacher suddenly rushed in and got a  back hold aud Dan didn't last fifteen  seconds under the strain. It was a fair  fall, and as he rose up he took a silver  dollar from his pocket and handed it  out in ���'.xchan.'-e for m Bible.  ���'Didn't I say  the  Lord  would  help  Havana is bounded by beauty on one  side, by ignorance on the ' other. The  approach to it, particularly in, the early  morning, is exceeded in loveliness by  perhaps but two or three other ports.  There are many exquisite things in the  world, and among* them, near the head  of the list, stands dawn in the tropics.  It is sudden as love and just as fair.  Dawn in the Havanese harbor is a foretaste of what paradise may be. The  tourist who has sailed that way passes  a'night beneath stars that are larger  and more neighborly than our own.  The water, too, is different. At Key  West it looks like a lawn in May. It  has tho same aspagagus green. Then  it changes. It ibecomes seamed with  phosphorus.-. As the stars disappear it  changes again, and very suddenly, into  a syrup of opals. At "the horizon is a  tender pink. Overhead is a fusion of  salmon and of blue. Just beyond, within a rifle range, is an amphitheater of  houses partly-colored as rainbows,  tiara'd with the pearl points of a cathedral, girdled with the yellow wall of a  crumbling fort. Every city has an  aspect and an odor of its.Own. Paris,  for instance, has a white.slk.yand smells  like-'a pretty woman;; ^The ^spect of  Havana is saffron.. T^|"}ii,ells.(if rancid  oil. In addition it suggests Seville.  Though the Moors have never been  there, it looks as though they had.  When Representative Jerry Simpson,  of Kansas, was making'his'speech in  the House the other day on the comparative merits of torpedo boats and  battleships,members whose seats adjoin  his were digesting the following bit of  poetry, which appeared in a Western  newspaper, and subsequently came to  Mr. Simpson's attention :  The new ''protected cruiser" cruised upon the  and punched holes  new '"protected cruiser1  ocean wide  Till a man-of-war espied hev  into her side.  And the man-of-war continued for a little whi 1  to float.  Till driven to the bottom by a new torpedo boat.  Then whiie the foe triumphant rubbed his hands  and softly laughed,  Torpedo boat destroyers came and sunk the. other  craft.  And as the victor dashed about' through battle's I  smoke and murk, I  Destroyers of torpedo boat destroyers did their  work.  Whereat into the act ion something new in vessels  came���  "Destroyers of destroyers of destroyers" was its  name.  Which brings the matter down to date, where it  will rest no doubt,  Until some ten-times wrecker of destroyers ventures out.  iiie.y" asked the preacher as he mounted  the mule to ride on.  An Irishman, finding his cash at a  low ebb, resolved to adopt "the road"  as a professional mans of refreshing the  exchequer; and having provided himself with a huge horse-pistol, proceeded  forthwith to the conventional "lonely  common," and lay in wait. The no less  conventional "farmer returning from  market with a bag of money" of course  soon appeared, to whom enter Pat with  the regulation highwayman offer of  choice, "Your money or your life!" a  remark fortified by 'the simultaneous  exhibition of the firearm in the usual  way. The farmer, who was a Quaker,  essayed to temporise. "I would not  have thee stain thy soul with sin,  friend; and didst thou rob me of my  gold, it would be theft; and didst thou  kill me, it would be murder. But hold!  A bargain is no sin, but a commerce  between two honest men. I will give  thee this bag of gold for the pistol  which thou boldest at my ear." The  unsuspecting amateur Macbeath, yielding perhaps to the Quaker's logic and  solicitude for his spiritual welfare.made  the exchange without a moments hesitation. "Now, friend," cried the wily  Ephraim, levelling the weapon, "give  me back my gold, or I'll blow thy brains  out!" "Blaze away, thin, darlint!" said  Pat. "Sure, there's niver a dhrop of  powther in it!" The result was a sold  Quaker.    The seal worn by the Pope and used  by him on officiaL documents to which  the signature is attached, has on it the  engraving of a fish, with the cipher of  the. wearer. Since the 13th century  every pope has worn a ring of this character, air' it is shattered with a hammer  when the wearer dies to prevent its use  on a forged document.  F.

I'OIXTED   PARAGRAPHS.  A folding bed must be pulled down  before it can be done up.  The man that makes the least noise  is often the most dangerous.  The man who kicks for justice sometimes gets more of it than he wants.  Married men always have more buttons off their clothes than bachelors.  Whatever Noah's shortcomings were  he knew enough to go in when it rained.  A cow may have a good many qualities, but she is too modest to blow her  own horn.  The wise father always tries to bring  up his son in the way he should have  gone.  A woman can get a shiftless husband  in about five minutes, but it sometimes  takes a lifetime to get rid of him.  WAR.  "And, then, think of the deaths and  the heart aches. If these men who are  crying loudly for war could see and  hear a battlefield, and could think of  their own sons as there, it might hush  their barbaric enthusiasm a little.  Think of the hundreds and thousands  of men, their bodies torn, mangled in  every conceivable way, trodden over  by the infantry, ridden over by the  cavalry, wounded, neglected, crying for  a cup of water, thrilling through every  nerve with pain, dreaming in their  agony of the loved onesiat home. Then  go to the rear and see the surgeons at  work���see piles, perhaps, of arms or  legs tossed out like wood chopped and  riled up in a yard Then go to the  mspitals and listen to the moans of the  sick and the dying; see the pale cheeks  and the lack-luster eyes; what wounds  gangrene, and decay���and remember  thisls war! No matter Iioav righteous  the war may be, it is somebody's fathers, it is somebody's brothers, it is  somebodv's sons that are going through  all this."      ���* ''       *       ' * ��� ' *  *  "If we can make it clear to the world  that Spain is responsible for the destruction of our battleship, there is no question of our being able to be indemnified.  But is it the best way, because 25f> men  have already been killed, to kill 10 or  50 or 100,000 more���not only Americans,  but Spaniards as well? And did it  never occur to you in all these matters  that it is never the right person that  gets killed when you go to war? These  men that we should send out in our  armies, they are not responsible. Why  should we kill them? The poor Spaniards that would meet us in defence,  tuey are not the ones that blew up the  Maine. Why should we kill them?"���  Rev. Minot J. Savage, in the Church of  the Messiah, New York.
