Early iu August H. A. Mulling
will ship about 3000 head out of
the country south of Medicine Hat.

carloads. W. A. Taylor was in
from Spencer Bros.' on Saturday
to make arrangements for the ship-
ing and while here had a wire from

shone county, Idaho, the net profits
of the Coeur d'Aiene silver-lead
mines for 1903 reached the enormous sum of 82,105,416, an increase
over the preceding year of about
perties of the Federal Mining Company netted $998,726, nearly one-
half of the total amount. The record of the Hercules is marvelous.
From 10,043 tons of ore extracted
from tho mine a net profit'of $438,-
746 was realized after expending
$100,000 in repairs and construction. For 1902 its net profits
amounted tn $169,000. The net
profit for the Morning was $316,420,
a gain over the orevious year of
$200,000, while the Bunker Hill
experienced one of the most profitable years in its history, returning
a profit of $287,497 as against a
profit of but; $6/,000 for the preceding year. The neb profits of tho
Standard and Mamoth were $595,-
038, while in 1902 thev reached
$618,912. The Last Chance, at
Wardner, increased to 382,652 from
$279,607, while the gain of the
Hecla was approximately $40,000.
The producing mines to report a
loss were, the Coeur d'Aiene Development Company, the Gold Hunter.

mine, reported the largest deficit,

A week ago the chances were altogether in favor of another session
ofthe present parliament. Now it
is said to be as good as settled that
there will be an appeal to the people as soon after the session as possible. In all probability the general
elections will be held during the
grst week in November. Word to-
this effect has gone forth from
headquarters to the Liberal organizers throughout Canada. What;
has determined upon this course
has not transpired, but some say
the change of program is due to
another hitch having arisen in the
Grand Trunk Paciiic negotiations.
Enderby is likely to be the headquarters for a big mining company
in the near future.0 The recent find
on the Mount Ida Group, situated
near Salmon Arm, owned by Messrs
McLeod, Currie and Scaforth, °is
said to be something of very great
importance. Those who have seen
it say that a 14-foot ledge, carrying
a big shoot of galena ore, has been
uncovered in the channel of the
creek, and that it can be traced into the mountain on both sides of
the creek. The ore is rich in -niver,
and carries a good amount of gold.
The Mount Ida property has long
attracted attention in this vicinity.
It was once, held by local parties,
but was thrown up because the
owners could not lind the lead.
Now Salmon Ann people own it.
Local people have secured au option
the property, and it' it proves satisfactory on later investigation, it

Assavs from surface ore showed

Oro shipments from Kootenay
mines to smelters total up to 82,-
816 tons for the month of June this
year as against 66,179 tons shipped
in June, 1903. This is a net increase of 16,637 tons. Every district from which ore was shipped
shows an increase, except one,
which is good evidence that the
mining industry in the Kootenay
and  Boundary districts of British

be >out-of town for several weeks.

A. C. McArthur, at one time
C.P.R. agent in this city had several knife tunnels run into him by a
miner named Sam Brown. Brown is
in jail awaiting the recovery of McArthur. It required 52 stitches to

One of the men died in the bottom
of tho shaft, whilo the other succumbed on the ladder, and only

Sir Archibald Geike's examples
of the" rigid Sabbatarianism of the
Highlands are interesting. One is
of a lady who rose early on Sunday,
and carried her canary down into

Another is of a young clergyman
whose orthodoxy was suspected because he was seen standing at his
window' on the Lord's Day "dandling his bairn." A third story was
told by the lato Lord Playfair, who
heard the nurse quieting his little
boy one Sunday in this wiso:

P ENGLAND, were to make .Japan her
eni:mv, it would mean a sweeping of her
iutiueiiee from ihe East. ... lu
one sense, England is China in Europe.
What si.e depends upon is no more than '.he bequests of her ancestors i.nd of hi-toiiciil irlory.
Even that historical glory was not obtained
-by fighting with equal powers. ... Our.nnv.v
will be increased; after tlie present war, with a
view to cope with combined squadrons of
European Powers as our object. . . . We are
rea y to sacrifice our country for its own dignity, honour, and.right, and we do not fear
Europe."—Thk Javanesk pai-kk "Kokimiko-
TO.MO," TKAN8LATKD JUNK 21. 1895.    ,
"Should the Japanese rule dominate China it
will result in a process of'civilization and education of China's millions and the adaption of their
latent strength for occupation as a producing
nation in open competition with the other industrial countries of the world. The question
arises, pregnant with imp irt to the labouring
classes,'How will tins competition affect the
manufacturing and) producing countries of
Europe. Amu-ica, and Australia V" — W.
GntKturas in "Thk Emi'ikks ok tiik East."
'■Mr Ooote relates that hu was travelling on
one of tne railway* iivJupuu with a friend, who
has beei. for thirty years residing in tlie country,
when his attention was attracted by a loud conversation going on botwo. n several Japanese
military officers, who were seat-.d in the same
carriage. 'Would you like Uto know what those
follows are talking about?' asked Mr Coote's
companion. 'Thoy are referring to your country
Aust alia. They say that Australia has great
pnstoral lands, great forests, and soil that will
grow coffee, te i, ri« e, and every other tropical
product. The Australians, they think, are acting in a dog-in the-manger fashion in not al
lowing ether people to settle on the land, and,
by doing so. develope it. Thoy consider Kng-
land a capital ally in case of war with any other
nation, but HhouJd anything arise of an unfriendly nature between themselves and the
English, the best thing for their Government to
do would be>to at once send down some of their
warships and capture a good slice of Northern
Australia.' "— Audlkv Cootk, interviewed uy
"Tub BiushaneUouiueh" Sei'tumbku 1>, 1890.
"The Napoleonic craze has reached Jap.n.
Tsabonchi, a leading Japanese novelist, has
made him the hero of one of his romances, and
prints of the great Corsican adorn the walls of
almostevery Japanese cottage. The historical
e«?ay, by the way, is a form of literature in
much favour among the Japanese, monographs
on Bismarck and Cnnar being only second in
demand t > those on Napoleon."—"The Si'ECTA-
roii," London, 1897.   ,
"Japan is not only building more ships than
any other power except England, but she is
budding better ships in English shipyards than
England herself is constructing for her own
navy . . . It must . . . belassumed that
Japan's purpose is the general one of predominant sea-powvr in the Orient."—C. H Champ in
"Colonel J. F. Maurice, an expert strategist,
writing on the results of the peace conditions of
the ohina-Japan War, says that if Japan obtains
the c mtrol of affairs in China rfie is certain to
demand'the free admission of Chinese into Australia "    "

Government, we must draw a distinction botween that band of desperate
autocrats and the Russian people who,
on the whole, are humane, charitable,

therefore, no desire to see Russia defeated as, indeed, we believe il is impossible to defeat Russia in the lon<r
Our fatal alliance with Japan was tlie
direct result ot Chamberlain's blundering- policy in South Africa. Having
entered upon a'war for the benefit oi
the Jewish and Gentile mine owners,
with a criminal want of knowledge and
preparation, we soon found our hands
tied in the East, where we had
been supreme/ The fool. Government,
which ihoBrit-iah.W(>rUin<*!'.t'lai>ses pitt in
power, threw away the splendid Heritage of influence,"built up throngh a
couple of centuries of astute statesman
ship. The punishment was a most dan
gerous alliance with Japan, which binds
us to right in other people's quarrels.
Thus Krugor continues to " stagger
humanity," and Chamberlain stands exposed as the most impudent political
imposter whom the credulity of the
British people has ever tolerated.
A section of the London Press, headed
hy the Times, writes scurrilous articles
reg'ai'ding' Russia These -opinions are
quoted on the Continent, as the" expression of English belief It is marvellous
tliat there is no foieign correspondent
in London'intelligent enough to draw,
attention to the limited circulation of
these journals. Whatever the Times
may have been previous to its false and
maiicious charges against Mr Pamell
and the Irish party," to-day it is looked
upon simply as an interesting curiosity,
a doddering' dotard, representing' the
last stage of toothless Toryism. There
is really no particular enthusiasm for
Japan in this country Japanese civilization is a mere veneer, like Japanese
honesty, as to which all people who
have had anv dealing' with that race,
admit does not exist.
.Except for its Government, a good
understanding- with Russia would be
much more-to the benefit of Great Britain than the Japanese alliance. At
this moment, in spite of the infamous
Press censorship, Russian literature is
one of the freshest and most vital forces
in the world. Russia is cursed, not only
with an autocratic Government, but
with an ignorant and bigoted Church
'¥Bt"hw~pfo"pie™b{nTM nj^^
State, are, on the whole, sagacious,
patient, industrious, law-abiding Our
Democracy must have the kindliest
feelings towards the Russian Democracy,
while detesting the form of Government
for which the Russian people are not
responsible. Who that has read the
novels of Tolstoy, Turgenieff, Gogol,
Dostoyeveky—to* name but a few—has
failed'to bestruck with the confiding,
innocent, affectionate nature of the
Russian peasant, his charity and inherent goodness, all the more remark
able in contrast with the detestable
qualities of tho corrupt Russian bureaucracy. In Japan we have a very wily
ally that will use us for ite own purposes.
As one of our correspondents points out,
if Japan captures Port Arthur in this
war, in ten years' time she will clear
England out of Wei-IIai-Wei. It will
be a (second Boer War.
Tho moral is that wo should think
coolly nnd sanely on this business  Peoplo should remember that in theso days,
more than at any other timo, the Press
—and particular the London Press—is
used as an agency ny Governments and
financial groups.   rlhey ought, there'
lore, to look very guardly at tho Press
utterances.   We know what was clone
hy the Yellow Press as regards South
Africa    People are aware as to what is
still being done--how the mino owners
havo bought up  all the newspapers,
except one or two, and how new*, unless

Press, once a guarantee of liberty, is

Woodward mopped his brow and when j
he cooled down he began to deliver!
himself forcibly.
"I'm disgusted," said Woodward, "at
what I just saw on the street as 1 passed
by the carriage way leadiug into Wells,
Fargo & Co.'s yatd down at California
and Montgomery. Sittingona chicken
coop, either drunk or knocked out Inthe heat of the'bun, is a police officer
fast asleep."
"Let us-take a look at the animal,"
said Clemens, getting up from his desk
and walking out.
On' his way down to the corner he
stepped into the California market and,
going up to a vegetable, stall, he plucked
a large leaf from a head of cabbage
When he arrived at the place where.t!ie
big, fat policeman was fast asleep the
humorist proceeded to fan him with the
cabbage leaf This amusing scene soon
attracted a crowd, which inside of ten
minutes had swelled into hundreds aud
California street was blocked lo traffic
To add to the excitement someone had
run to the old city hall and informed
Captain Douglass that (here had been
a robbery at Wells, Fargo & Co.'s, as
the place was surrounded by armed
men. Douglass summoned every available cop on his force, which at the time
counted less than a dozen, and rushed
to the place designated. After brushing
the crowd to one side he entered the
gateway and there found Clemens
whirling the cabbage leaf as though
nothing unusual had occured about him.
To say that Captain Douglass was mortified-would be but a'mild expression.
The drowsy cop lost his star and Clemens enjoyed the joke.
