There is a horse in New Denver called
Razor, owing to the sharpness of his
rustling qualities. The other day he
chewed a door off its hinges, got into a

they may lead him up to a finish if he
does not reform.

So much has been said of late from
press and pulpit about the writings of
F.mina Goldman that the woman has
really gained some renown. More people will be induced to read her book6
today than ever before, and that irood
will come from it there is no doubt
Knnna Goldman's books can hurt no
one of sound mind She is a woman
wluAhinks and writes as she thinks.
Women of this type are scarce enough
Her thoughts cannot always be right,
but thought, right or wrong, is better
than the insipid writings of tlie host of
light novel writers ofthe day. Thought
creates thought, and what is evil in the
thought of one mind is not necessarily
catching. Rut no thoughtful mind can
he nivon expression without creating
thought in others. As the mind is so
it will continue to be If murderously
inclined it will continue lo develop on
these lines even if no literature but the
Holy Bible be read. If the mind is inclined toward goodness it will grow in
•goodness, if the heart be. right, even if
opposed by all the literature of the day.
Emma Goldman is rabid in many ways,
but beneath it all,  she   is thoughtful.
She strikes at a national evil

one of  the sad  features about all  reforms.
Slime, hogs are like some people,     In
fact, the general run of Logs have many
characteristics that resemble those of
some, people. When we see a man or
woma'i cling with stoical stubbornness
to a narrow idea that has been born of
biiiotry and reared in ignorance, re-
iusing to listen to reason or to concede
a single point that would necessitate
a change of base or the acceptance, of a
higher thought than that of egotising
one's self, we say that person is as "independent as a hog on ice." Being unable to skate or walk  the   brute lies

The Mining Record of Victoria takes
a very sensible view of the mining
situation. It suvs it is satisfactory to
note, that there never was a time when
more men were, actually at work in the
mines of British Columbia than at present; there never was a time when the.
output of ore was larger or more valuable; and there never was a time when
inore. capital was being legitimately
expended in the pur-hase of milling
property. ;he installation of machinery
Goth for mining and treating ore, and
the construction of railways for the service of inining* districts. It is unnecessary to particularize Here. The. promising outlook for the. coai. smelting,
railway and iron interests of East
Kootenay, the rapid recovery of the
Slocan now in progress, the rehabilitation of the Silver King at Nelson, the
hoavv investments iu the Lardeau, the
increase in furnace capacity and rail-
way-n Rvoio"pnT(JiTf" iTTTlTrBtnTfiTiary'raTnr}'
the promised inauguration of copper
mining and smelting on a large scale
on the Coast—all these, things discover,
to those, of only ordinary observant
capacity, a steady progress in the development of legitimate mining iu the
Province of British Columbia.
The point we wish to make at the
present time is this, that these satisfactory features are entirely inconsistent
with the hypothesis that the natural or
legal conditions under which mining is
carried on in this Province were responsible for the depression noticeable
this spring, and still exist to a certain
extent! while tlieir appearance, concurrently with this speculative reaction is
proof positive that this reaction has
nothing to do with the conditions under
and Stemwinder mines. Some discussion has also arisen respecting the opportunity for a smelter on Slocan lake.
We have frequently referred to the very
satisfactory progress of the mines tributary to Slocan lake and particularly of
the remarkable development of thp dry
ore belt which is becoming an important contributor to the mineral output of
the Province. But it is doubtful
whether there, is a sufficiently large and
steady tonnage lo keep a smelter in
operation, and with regard to dry ores
it is doubtful 'whether the premium'
offered by outside smelters is not more
than sullicient to offset any advantages
lo be. gained by treating them within
the limits of the district in which they
are produced. However, not to include
a smelter on Slocan lake, where, there
is certainly great activity and progress
in mining, how can it be reasonably
maintained that the inining industry of
15rltTsircoIuiTiT5uns~Th~aTiy tru7*Aouse in
a decadent or backward condition in
view of the conlemplated industrial developments which we. have here outlined"-'

Really, Teddy is all right. He

of Major McKinley  as the president.    I am speaking of him as my
husband.    If any one could  know
what it is to have a wife sick, complaining, always an invalid for 25
years, seldom a day well,   and yet
never a  word of unkindness has
ever passed his lips;  he is just, the
same tender, thoughtful, kind gentleman I knew when first he came
and sought my hand.    I know him
because I am his wife, and it is my
proudest pleasure to say this, not
because he is president,but because
he is my husband.    I wish that I
could have seen him yesterday.    I
love to see him among the people
whom he seeks to serve so faithfully.    But I read his speeches this
morning.    1 read all liis speeches.
I only wish that I could help him
as 1 should.    But he is so good, so
kind, so patient.    He gives me all
the time he can.    He never forgets
me.no matter how busy he is.   But
1 will be glad when  he is out of
public life.    I did not want him to
run a second time.    I thought he
had done enough for the country,
and   now   I   know   lie   has   done
enough, and when his term expires

Two fresh young girls from the

cute when they went to the Coast.
So they registered from Tacoma,
Wash., blew out the gas, and retired for the night. An hour or
two later they were rescued from
an untimely death by suiVocation.
If they had registered from the
Okanagan they would have been
told not to blow out the gas, but
the landlord thought anyone from
Tacoma should know enough to

proof of the value of truth.

And since it is open to us to tear

"It's just this way I make it out
to be," writes the up-to-date poet:

A Mllli' slet'iiinj,' seed 1 woke, 1 did indeed,

There's modern science and
natural theology both in a nutshell,
and Caliban on his island, or Paley
in his sanctum, never evolved anything beyond it, especially as regards the supreme wisdom of going
according to the laws.
It's just the very same

Adds the audacious poet, and the
truths of life  appear to  be with
him,   which  in  no  way  militates
against the wisdom  of Scripture.
Meantime   have we Abraham for
our  father, Adam and Eve for our
lirst parents, or just some protoplastic germ in  the  middle of the
deep sea ooze?    Who knows and
who cares?   To do  credit to any
,v_father_is_the main^thing—that,conr-
cerns us.    Moreover,   the greatest
"scientist" that ever lived told us
long since to call no one on  earth
our father, for one is our father
which is in heaven, and with  that
kind of spiritual parentage we can
afford to  let  Adam  and   Eve go,
though it must be confessed that
ffiiey were creatures of parts, with
■ magnificent ambitions to make gods
of themselves.    Hut  that  appears
to have been just the  trouble, and
for a reason that the wise old (ireek
dramatists discovered  when  they
said,   "Never  make a god appear
unless for actions worthy of a god."
Would-be gods who were so afraid j
of themselves, or any one else for]
'that numcr, that they had   to  run
away anil hide their glories behind
fig leaves,   were  certainly   coining
out too  early   in   ihe   programme.
And perhaps if ihat creation story

Mayors, whose merit is purely
chronological, consisting in their
happening to hold the office in this
particular year, and to the heads of
three universities, the head of the
greatest university of all, and the
university in his person, being
slighted. Might not Canadian appreciation of Canadian merit be at
least as judicious as this?
Sir Wilfrid Laurier says that
Canada is not a colony but a nation.
With her population, her extent of
territory, and her resources,Canada
has in her the making of no mean
nation. She surpasses in these respects Holland. Belgium,Denmark,
Christ should find it possible to say*j Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, and
to us ''ye are my children," we
could afford to let even Noah, with
all his clean and unclean beasts,
reconstruct the human family without us. This is precisely why
science can never harm religion
much by any liberties it is pleased
to take with its ancient faiths or
records, because there is a, spiritual
line of life and inheritance that is
beyond its ken, which holds its
own sure course unruffled by the
continually shifting views and discoveries of science. Meantime,
however, if in its search along the
line of evolutional*}' being for the
supreme moment when the conscious life of spirit touched the unconscious life of matter, it can find
anything grander than that quick
Portugal: to say nothing of the
Danubian Principalities or the
South American Republics.' But
no community, however great, can
be a nation while it lacks the sovereign power, while its constitution
is imposed on it from without,while
it is incapable of treating on its
own account with foreign nations.
On the road to nationality Canada
may have been, but Sir Wilfrid
Laurier and his party, by turning
her face towards Imperial Federation have been doing their utmost
to make her retrace her steps. Imperial Federation may be a grand
idea, but it means the renunciation
of independence. About that there
ought to be no mistake.
The question whether party government is founded in reason and
can endure is not merely speculative; it is the practical question of
the hour. The Winnipeg Evening
News says in defence of the system
that parliamentary government has
made prodigious advances since the
time of the accession of William
IV., when the majority ofthe House
of Commons was elected under the
influence of a boroughmongering
oligarchy by a very small minority
of the population. No doubt it
Inn?. But it does not follow that
the militant forms into which the
antagonistic sections of the nation
were thrown by the necessities of
that struggle are fitted to be the
permanent organization of government. So long as there is a broad
division of principle about an object
of paramount importance, party is
natural, rational, and consequently
moral. But such conditions are
occasional and transieut. Party
without a division of principle on
an object of paramount importance
is faction, on which nobody would
propose to lay the  foundations of
the State.    What is the state of
party government in England, the
mother of the system ?    What is
the state of party government  in
any   of   the   European   countries
which have tried the  English system?   In Canada,   what is  party
government, or is there any prospect of its  being,   but a constant
fight   for office between  two machines bidding against each  other
in an  auction  which  demoralizes
the people.
Before 1880 little, was known in China
